WkTOTICE. Whereas, it appears from an
xSi the papers of Mr. Buxton, ex-captain of the Protectorate
schooner Rob Roy, deceased on board the Caroline Hort, dur
ing the passage of said vessel from Sydney to Tahiti, as well as
from other narticular sources:
1st, That said captain had taken, from the bark Julia Ann.
wrecked at the Scilly Islands, the sum of 310 sovereigns.
2d. That when the Rob Roy was wrecked on the Navigator
Islands, said Ruxton declared that he had not saved more than
xi sovereigns out 310 V formerly taken, of which fact there is
PTPt doubt, since a creat number of articles of smaller value
were saved. ......
3d, That it is suspected that said Ruxton has embezzled, for
his own profit, a part of the sum saved from the Julia Ann,
wrecked a second time with the Rob Roy ;
The " Commandant Particular," Commissioner of n. I. M
in the Society Islands, has ordered that an inquest be made by
the Justice of Peace, acting ad interim as Judge of Instruction,
upon the facts above stated.
From said inquest, during which Mr. Charlton, second m
command of the Rob Roy, did not appear, by reason of absence,
neither the crew, and whose testimony was very important, it
That said Ruxton made, at Sydney, excessive expenses, out
of proportion with his situation and with what he was known to
possess when he left Tahiti.
That, in answer to one of the witnesses inquiring from him
how he was able to spend so freely, he declared that he had re
ceived money as assistance from a Scotch society named
That, after the demise of said Ruxton, 69 sovereigns and four
dollars, as well as some goods and jewelry, were found ' in his
possession, the origin of which cannot be explained.
In consequence, the Commissioner of II. I. M. has decided
that the present abstract should be published in the official
newspaper, so that all interested parties may present their
claims upon the succession of said Ruxton, delivered into the
bauds of the British Consul, who will preserve it during one year
from this date.

that they have sense." This certainly derives m

of facts: . ... ,
At the siege of Burtpore, in 180o, the uriusn aruy ,
with its countless host of followers and aitenuow, .
and thousands of cattle, had been for a long time be

I posed great consternation among me vuuiynuy
thft result: and some fourteen hours' assiduous and
ingenious labor was required to restore the ponderous
ammal from his novel, though not unpleasant, be-
cause cool, situation.
If a helpless hvins creature, or a -wounded person
lie in his way, the elephant will protect and succor
him. An incident is recorded in the history of the
siege of Seringapatam, to this effect : " I have seen,"
says the officer referred to, 'the wife of a Mahoot
give an mtant in charge ot an eiepnant, wmie sue
went about some business, and have been much
amused in observing the sagacity and care of the un
wieldy nurse. The child, which, like most children,
did not like to lie still in one position, would, as soon
as left to itself, begin crawling about; in which exer
cise it would probably get among the legs of the
animal, or entangled in the branches of the trees on
which he was feeding, when the elephant would, in
Che ' most tender manner, disengage his charge,
either by lifting it out of the way with his trunk, or
by removing the impediments to its free progress. If
the little creature should happen to stray away loo
far. its mammoth guardian would lift it back as
gently as possible to the spot whence it had started."
Take yet another example of the shrewd wit of this
colossal creature. Some men were teasing an elephant
they were conveying across a river. In the boat that
was towed alongside they had a dog, which began to
torment it by puliing its cars. The elephant was
resolved to resent the impertinence, and what do you
suppose was her expedient ? She filled her proboscis
with water, and then deluged the whole party. At
first the men laughed at the manoeuvre, butshe per
sisted until they were compelled to bale to keep from
sinking; when, seeing this, she redoubled her efforts,
and it is said she certainly would have swamped the
boat, had the passage across been prolonged a few
minutes longer. Thus. much although much more
might be presented in behalf of the noble qualities
of the elephant. We thus see that he is in no respect
inferior to the dog in character, and yet since the;
most excellent things are said to lie in a small com
pass and the dog does not, like hi3 monstrous con
temporary, require two hundred pounds of solid meat
per diem, or take up so much room the prevailing
preference for the canine will doubtless long continue.
Somnini mentions an elephant, at Naples, which
was employed with others in fetching water in a cop-'
per vessel, and perceiving that the water escaped
from some fracture, he took it of his own accord to a
smith's for repair, in imitation of what he had Eeen
done before by his master.
Miseries of a Lecturer. Rev. Dr. Bethune, in
the course of a lecture at Newark, N. J., gave an -amusing
sketch of the miseries of a public lecturer,
in which he is reported to have said :
Then again, the reporters, (whose irate quills he
would no sooner provoke than those of a hundred
fretful pocupines,) often made him say very queer
things. Once when he stated that he was not by
birth, but only ecclesiastically, a Dutchman, the re
porter made him an ' ecclesiastical deduction." At
another time he spoke of the devil as sowing tares,
and was astonished the next morning to read that he
had mentioned the devil's sawing trees. On another
occasion he was made to say that the Patriarch Abra
ham taught Cecrops Arithmetic ! .Nevertheless his
experience of life had taught him three important
practical rules: 1st. Never contradict a woman. 2d.
Never challenge the bill of .a hotel-keeper. 3d. Never
quarrel with an editor. Then again it was often an
noying to see one's name posted on placards in ludi
crous proximity with those of negro minstrels, and
all sorts of other connection, and especially so, when
the bills have become torn and partly overlaid witn
newer ones,' so as to read something like this: Jul

The Pre-Emixence or Women. Even after death
nature respects her inherent modesty, for a drowned
woman floats on her face, and a drowned man upon
his back. The noblest part of a human being is the
head ; but the man's head is liable to baldness ; woman
is never bald. The man's face is often . made so by a
most odious beard, t.nd so covered with sordid hairs,
that it is scarcely to be distinguished from the face of
a wild beast; in woman, on the other hand, the fa.ee
always 'remains pure and decent. For this reason
women were, by the laws of the twelve tables, forbid
den to rub their cheeks lest hair should grow and ob
scure their blushing modesty. 'But the most evident
proof of the innate purity of the female sex is that a
woman having once washed ia clean, and if she wash
in second water will not soil it; but that a man is
never clean ; though he should wash in ten successive
waters he will cloud and infect them alL Life of
