THE New GOLD DC/MAR.—We were

an open centre of nearly the size of the

and on the other side "United States of ,
America, 1852." We think the coin a de

use, as it is not so likely to be given out
for another, as is frequently now the case.
It will doubtless become popular, and

A VALUABLEBRICK.-Ai journeyman
mason, named Brefund, was employed to
repair a chimney in the apartment of a
gentleman residing in the Rue des France
Bourgeois. While about his work the ma
son broke a brick which he found in the
chimney, and to his surprise discovered
that it was hollow, and contained a bank
note for £5OO. The workman was all
alone, and might readily have appropriated
this suns to himself, but he preferred to
communicate the fact to his employer, who
called to mind that about two months be
fore he had written to Isis uncle at Amster
dam, for a supply of money, and had in re
turn recieved a carefully sealed package,
on being opened, proved to be nothing but
the brick in question, which the indignant
recipient threw into the chimney, and wrote
his uncle an angry letter on the subject, to
which no answer had been sent. The
gentleman was not aware that in Holland
these bricks are made on purpose to send
small sums of money, as making a more
secure package than any other. The ma
son was liberally rewarded for his honesty,
and a letter of thanks and apology was des
patched to the uncle.

A LARGE GOLD STORY.—A correspond

Francisco, relates the following incident:
Two oonanon 7 looking persons entered the
hotel this morning, just from the mines—
, a man and wife. The male imnvidual look
! ed for all the world like a day laborer, and
the female bore a close resemblance to an
Irish scullion. She wore coarse, vulgar
biogans, and to her girdle was attached a
gold watch and chain, valued at least at
two hundred dollars. The husband left
the hotel for half an •lour, and retooled
with a receipt for one hundred and fifteen
thousand dollars, the value of the dust
which he has just consigned for transporta
tion to . New York. This sum has been
gained by digging. The husband dug while
the wife washed, assisted by her little son,

MENTAL CAKES.-A late London paper
speaks of the poisoning of three children,
by eating ornamented cakes, which had
been presented them on Easter day, as a
present from a friend, one who died in
dreadful agony—the others were saved by
prompt medical aid. The Coroner, in sum
moning up, regretted that many similar ea
ses of death, caused under such circumstan
ces, had come before him, and expressed a
hope that a stop would be put to the sale

Rev. Dr. .J Esst: Wrttattr,. in the find year
of his age.
The death of our highly esteemed vever
able friend and fellow citizen, the Rev. Dr.
JESSE IVittGur, in the fullness of his years,
was perhaps no less deplored by all who
were acquainted with the excellence of his
worth, than if he had been snatched away
in the vigor of early manhood. Ile became
Ireligious in his youthful days, and subse
quently a Minister of the Gospel, in which
capacity he exercised l►iuiself arduously
and profitably for upwards of thirty years—
and the last twenty year: of his life was a
worthy member of the Methodist Protestant
Church. The disease with which he had
been long afflicted was somewhat complica
ted, the most prominent symptom of which
was dyspepsy. Ile was confined to the
house in the early part of the winter, and
to Isis bed the last three months of his ill
ness. Though his sufferings during his
long term of sickness had been groat, and
at ti►ues suffering the most excruciating
