It is related of Mr. Carlyle, that when he
i.vas writing his " French Revolution," he
lent the manuscript of the first volume to a
literary neighbor to peruse. By some mis
chance or other, it. had been left lying
on the parlor floor, and had been forgotten.
Weeks ran on, and the historian sent for "
his MS., the printers being loud for " copy.
Inquiries Wore made, and it was found that
the maid of all the work, finding what she
conceived to be a bundle of waste paper on
the floor, had used it to light the parlor
fires with I Such was the . answer returned
to Mr. Carlyle; and his consternation and
despair may be imagined. There was,
however, no help for him, but to set him
aelf resolutely , to work to rewrite his book;
'and be turned to and did it.

John Randolph on Female Education.—lt
is related of the eccentric John Randolph,
of Roanoke, that one of the subjects which
he appeared to take delight in ridiculing'
was the modern system of female education ;
and he often told, with great glee, in illus

plain Virginia planter,, who unwittingly
married a young lady fresh from a boarding
school, and was surprised at dinner-hour

ed by oidisr of his bride.

Garibaldi has a son In a Protestant Semi
very-riear Livepool. The father, in separ
ating himself from his son, spoke thus to
him: "My son, the Bible, is the cannon
which will liberate Italy." Perhaps Italy'
will be liberated without the'Bible, but if
she enjoys liberty, establishes free govern

Bible as the basis and shield of her indc,
Garibaldi, it appears, has a " rightAand

the Rev. H. W. Beecher, the most latitu

some in9uiries respecting the instrument,
Sir David Brewster found that its funda

A PERMANENT PEN.—Messrs. Moseley
& Bon, of London, have
, perfeeted a pen
that will write for twelve hours or more,
continuously, without an application to the
inkstand, and yet take up no more space
than a pocket pencil-case. The material
employed by them, and found to answer ad

not acted on in any way by the ink con
tained in the reservoir. The whole is most
ingeniously arranged, but simple, and quite
unlike all other fountain-pens. For short

ditional facilities for this purpose are in progress.
Heretofore much complaint las been made as to
the worthlessness of seeds, but this in some degree
was owing to ignorance of the recipients, regard

During the year ending June, the receipts from
the sales of publiC lands were less than $2,000,-

amount, owing to the scarcity of , money and
other causes, and in many cases no bids at all were
Ten Tenn
The changes which*have taken place between
1860 and 1860 in the economic condition of our
country are very great. In that period the gold
mines have been discovered in California and
Australia. In 1840 we had $4 of paper circulation
to $1 of specie; in 1850 only $3 to $1 ; in 1860
less than $2 to $l. In 1849 the product, of pre=
clout metals was $95,600 ; in 1850 it was $264,000.
The whole amount now in the world is estimated
at $10,000,000,000 of• which six-tenths is silver.
It was always supposed that a sudden increase
in the quantity of money increases prices. This
has not proved true, for in spite of the influx
of gold, and in spite of the repeal of the English
corn laws, which has enabled us to export im
mense quantities of flour and grain, prices in gener
al are lower and wages higher than they ever were
before. Tables show that prices generally dur
ing forty years were highest in 1887 and lowest
about - 1843. Flour was so scarce in 1847 that we
imported $5,000,000 ; its average price for forty
years has been $6.64 per barrel. The sale of
tea has increased in twenty-five years from 13,-
000,000 to 36,000,000 pounds; the average price
for that period has been forty-eight cents. The
cotton crop has increased in forty years from
180,000,000 pounds to I,Boopopo pounds. A
great demand for breadstuffs from 1860 to 1867,
occasioned by railway labor and the repeal of the
British corn laws, kept prices generally on the
advance ; but in 1857, on account of the abund
ant crops, the slackening of the shipping and
railway interests and a glutted cotton market,
downward tendency prevailed. Our exports of
breadstuffs from 1860 to 1860 were $480,000,000.
Prices do not seem generally to be affected by
the fluctuation of paper currency. In 1849 the
bank.notaciroulation was $119,000,000 ; in 1862,
$178,000,000 ; in March, 1858,, it was h sl2o,ooo,-
000, shortly after which it rose to $15%000,000.

Population of Charleston.
The census of Charleston shows a population
of 40,748. In 1850 it was 42,985. This is a
decrease of 2,287 in ten years. The free white
population has increased 8,815, and the slave
piiiiulatfon deed:vied 5,924 in the last decade.
The free colored have also decreased 184. A
good many people were probably absent. from
Charleston during the time of the year in which
the census was taken, but this does not effect
the comparison with 1850, the census being
taken in the same season then as now. Our
Charleston neighbors Lad been . ; placing •their
population at something like fifty-six to sixty
The Earthquake.
In the Montreal Gazette we find notices of the
recent earthquake. A gentleman living in
'Mountain Street writes:
"A few minutes before six o'clock this morning
my whole household was startled by' the. sudden
shaking of the house. Servants and others
rushed about in dismay. I was awakened from
a soots:l...sleep by a motion like being jolted in a
light. spring wagon driven rapidly . over•a cordu
roy road; or rather over the bridges sometimes
seen in the country, covered with small poles in
stead of pleas. The motion was rapid and
more vertical than lateral." •
A gentleman residing in a stone house in Alex
ander Street, says "he was ''awakened at 53-
o'clock yesterday morning by the rattling of the
door and window sashes of his house, and looked
out of the window, imagining that there was a
strong gale of wind. Finding that this was not
the case, and the rattling being most violent in
the rear of the house, he went to one of the win
dows there, and became aware that it was an
earthquake. The whole house was shaken, and
articles of furniture were perceptibly moved
with an oseilating motion. The movement lasted
about three-quarters of a minute, as nearly as
he could judge."
Voningo County.
The Citizen of October 17th says: Gallagher
& Caldwell, on the Longwell. farm, on French
creek, commenced pumping their well, last week,
which proved to be a very rich one. During the
three days it. was pumped, it yielded from twenty
to twenty-five barrels per day. They broke
their engine and were compelled to stop pumping
to get it repaired, but will , soon start again.
Tucker & Howell, operating near the "Ramadell
Cooper Shop," have commenced pumping their
well. It is yielding from twelve to fifteen bar
rels of oil per day. It has a plentiful supply of
water, which is regarded among oil men as a
favorable omen.
What the New-York City Folks•say of
Dr. D'Lane's Celebrated Termifage.
Prepared by Fleming Bros., of Pittsbenyh, Pa
NEw-Yonx, August 25, X 852.
This is to certify that I am well acquainted
with a man fifty years of age, for many years a
resident of this city, who has been at times ex
tremly ill, but could not tell from what cause,
unless it was worms. He ' told his attending
physician hi s suspicions, but the physician at
once ridiculed the idea, and refused to attend
him any longer. His 'son then mentioned Dr.
M'Lane's Vermifuge, and asked him if he would
take it ; his reply was—l must take something to
get'relief or die.
They at once procured. a bottle of Dr. M'Lane's
Celebrated Vermifuge, and took one-half at one
dose. the result was, he passed upwards of
three quarts of warms, cut up in every form. He
got well immediately, and is now enjoying most
excellent health; and like the good Samaritan of
old, is endeavoring to relieve his unfortunate
neighbors. He makes it his business to hunt up
and select all cases similar to his own, that may
be given over by regular physicians, and induces
them to try Dr. M'Lane's Vermifuge. So far he
has induced more than twenty persons to take
the Vermifuge, and in ever case with. the most
happy results. He is well satisfied that Dr.
M'Lane's Vermifuge, prepared by Fleming Bros.
of Pittsburgh, is far superior to any other known
remedy, and that if more , generally known would
not fail to save many'valuable lives. For further
particulars inquire of Mrs. Hardie, - 1241 Cannon
Street, New-York City.
Purchasers will be careful to ask for Dr..lir Lane's
Celebrated Vermifuge, manufactured by Renting
Bros. of Pittsburgh; Pa. All other Vermifuges
in • comparison are worthless. Dr. M'Lane's
genuine Vermifuge, also his Celebrated Liver
Pills, can now be ,had at all respectable drug
stores. None genuine without the signature

This little sufferer from this frightful malady, was perfect
ly sensible to the lest; and when her natural 91111011 was
almost obscured, looking upward, she raised her little hands,
and said, "I want np there;" then, Axing her eyes steadfast

thing." When every pleasing object in reach Watioffered by her
anxious friends, she shook her head, anti extending her little

suddenly clapping her hands with apparent.dellght, said in a

Westmoreland County, Pa., aged 72 years.- ,
The deceased hating filled up the full period allotted to
mortals, three acme years and ten, in the affection' of a large
circle of relatives, friends and acquaintances, and distin
guished for offices of charity, hes gone• down to the grave
honored and lamented. From early youth she displayed
those lovely traite which marked her matins) life, and heau
tifully adorned her age. Her distinguished element of char
acter was her unselfish and untiring devotion tithe interests
and comforts of others—especially her fttmily and friends.
The poor and friendless were ever welcome to her hospitable
board and fireside, and received from her the `sympathy of a
mother and a friend. The needy and destitute found her
door open to them, and her band of charity:extended for their
relief. She filled the domestic relations of wife, mother and
relative with affection, kindnese, and discretion, and lived to
see her children grow up around her and settled in life,
profiting by her example and prudent counsel. _During' her
last few years she occasionally suffered pain, but no word of
emtplaint or murmur escaped from her lips. She frequently
intimated to those around her that her death .would be sud
den; and quickly indeed the Bridegroom called he as we
trust, to the marriage supper. With her hope and confidence
firmly fixed on the Saviour, she waited the Change, and amid
her varied trials, leaned on the arm of Him who is the resur
rection and life. Her death has made a void in the family
circle; but, relatives, "weep not for the dead; but weep for
yourselves," and let the suddenness of the removal teach you
the important lesson, "to number your days that you may
apply your hearts to wiedom."
DIED—At Allegheny Furnace. Blair County; Pa., on the
13th inst., of consumption, Mrs. MARY F., wife of Mr. Henry
T. M'Clelland, in the 38th year of her age.
The deceased bad been for many years a consistentinember
of the Presbyterian Church, and died in the triumphs of the
Christian faith. Though unpretending, and apparently
somewhat phlegmatic, she was a lady of much force of char
aster, and greet depth of feeling and morat'Worilii her
piety was not showy, but decided and operative.. During the
time of her feeble health; she was for the most part hopeful,
and oven cheerful. Until:a few weeks before her, death, she
could not think her case hopeless, as it ,reallY, was. And
when, the reality forced itself upon her mind, there was a
considerable struggle between the hope of life, the attachnient
to her family, and the duty to yield cheerfully to the wilt 'of
Him who docile all things well. But faith and obedience, by
the help of grace, conquered, and she became reconciled, and
even child-like in her submission. Oecasienally, her mind
was clouded with doubts and fears, the aecondary effects,
doubtless, of opiates administered to relieve her suffering.
Her end, however, was unclouded, ber departure, peace and

The NEW-YORK WEEKLY TIMES is a large and ele
gantly printed quarto sheet, of eight pages, or forty-eight
columns—devoted to Politics, Literature, and General News,
and intended to be the Best as well as the Cheapest Family
Newipaper in the United States.
The first aim of the T Imes is, and will always be, td;keep
its readers thoroughly and reliably posted np, as to 'every
thing which may happen, of general interest in any part or
the world. It comments fully and freely upon all topics of
importance in every department of public action, and always
in the interest of Freedom, Order, and the Public Good.
While its influence will be uniformly conservative„ it advo
cates every measure of Just and beneficent Progress, and re
sists the increase, extension or perpetuation.of Slavery, as of
every thing else incompatible with the higheet welfare of the
whole community. While it reports promptly and accurate
ly all intelligence of general.interest in every department of
human activity, it never panders to vicious tastes, and ex
cludes from its columns every thing that might render it
unsafe or improper for, general Family perusal. It seeks to
promote the general welfare, by urging the dolma of Educa
tion, Morality, and Religion upon the masses or the people;
and in all its discussions, it endeavors constantly to be said
ed and controlled by the spirit of Moderation, Patriotism,
and Common Sense.
In its Corrwpondence, both Foreign and Domestic,• the.
Times is confessed to be superior to any other American
Journal. Its Reports of, Congressional and Legislative pro
ceedings, of Financial, Commercial and General .T.ntelligence
of important Legal and Criminal Trials, and of whatever
may have special interest for the great body of the commu
nity, are full, prompt and reliable..
Especial attention is devoted to full, accurate and trust
worthy reports of the Live Stock and Produce Markets. for
which a special snips of Reporters Is maintained. A Liter
ary Department will also be kept up, embracing Standard
Novels and Talee, and miscellaneous selections of the high
est interest.
The Agricultural Deportment is compiled from a variety
of sources, many, of them inaccessible to the American read

HTitle is not merely , a Cook Book. It is a Compendium of
ousehold Knowledge, which, if studied, and its teachings
followed, will save many anAious home and weary ateps to
every housekeeper. It is practically instructive upon every
branch of Household Economy, It is of espeelat value to
the, inexperienced—to the young 'wife, just entering into a
home of her own, to whom it will save the mortification and
disappointment of those many little failures that without
such a guide are inevitable.
It is not too much to say that every home in which this
bookie found will be much the happier for it ; every meal in
that home better chosen and better
,prepared ; every
duty lighter and better attended to; and that nexpe
rience,br eveli a general want of skill, need never be a cause
of failure. The most minute directions are given upon every
Mrs. Haskell herself is an experienced housekeeper, and
every rule that she lays down has been over and over again
tested'by batten; and proved to be good. She does does not,
therefore, give any mere theories. yew honks, even upon the
one branch of cookery, possess this advantage--as they are
mostly mere collections of recipes gathered in everrdireo-
Hon, and strung together without any positive knowledge of
their correctness or excellence.
