Spot ok Cavtai.v Cook's Death. The
rock m somewhat insulated, and at high tide
the water breaks over its summit. It is said
to be, at present, not one-fourth its original
size, as ulmost every visiter, for a number
ot years, has been in the habit of carrying
away a fragment of it as a relic. A French
man-of-war, which was lately here, is said
to have taken oil' about a ton of it; and some
Spaniards, who visited the island several
years since, not only took specimens of the
rock, but the whole ship's company knelt
upon it, and offered up a prater for the
hero's soul. Townscnd'n Sporting Tour in

The London Review contains the follow
ing just tribute to the father of American in
dependence. "Since the reign of Washington in the
respect and admiration of mankind, the stan
dard of heroic greatness has been changed
real action has taken the place of theatri
cal; public life is no longer a stage to strut
and mouth on, but a true' life, nimated
w ith the same true judgments, as that of the
simplest citizen, open to the winds of heav
en, to the sun, and to the falling rain."
Curious and Important Discovery
We sec it stated in a foreign periodical, that
Signor Bcrtelli, a rich landed proprietor in
Piedmont, has discovered a method by w hich
he can make silk worms spin red or blue co
coons at pleasure. So that the silk is dyed
naturally with one or the other of these col
ors, not only of surpassing beauty but inde
structible. Signor Iicrlelli keeps his discov
ery a secret; but it is supposed to consist in
some particular preparation of the mulberry
leaves on which he l'eeds his worms.
Sublime and Affectino. We find the
following sentence in an exchange paper.
It describes the heroine of a story who had
just recovered from a fainting fit. "And
rising to her feet with a majestic mein, and
a smile of angelic sweetness, she seated her
self by the tea urn, and performed the
honors of her uncle's table to the satisfaction
of all concerned."
A troublesome sitter to an eminent por
trait painter puzzled himself and plagued the
artist in determining whether he should be
painted on panel or canvas. "Hut how
would you have me drawn ?" 'He at last
asked the irritated man of talent. "On wood,
sir," roared the latter: such a fellow as you
should be drawn on nothing but a hurdle."
The spread of tetotalism has seriously af
fected the revenue in those parts of Ireland
where it has been introduced. The excise
collection in Cork district is 2.3,000 de
ficient compared with the corresponding
quarter of last year; and the Fcrmoy col
lection shows a deficiency of 11,000 for
the same period.
Conversation. Nothing betrays a great
er degree of ignorance of the world, of the
human heart, and of good manners, than the
assumption of a self-sufficient, dictatorial
tone in conversation. Every man should
consider that his opinions are not oracles,
but they are generally liable to be disputed
