at .New York, a paper was read, in which Mr.
Doane, of 'he 3Iicronesian Mission, describes a
voyage made by the natives, ia little canoes, for
a disease of tve hundred miles and back, with
no guide but the stars, current and winds, and
wilft only two stopping places. It was stated at
a previous session of the "Society, by Mr. Gulick,
that ho had seen the natives of the Society Islands

Gcp is situated about ten mile from Cumberland
Ford, in Tennessee, and has been celebrated for a
century as a great depression in the mountain
ralge which traverses the continent from New
ll.ua psbir to North Alabama. Through this
gap, very similar in appearance and characteris
tics to the Sooth Pass in the Rocky Mountains,
formerly the emigrants from Virginia and North
Carolina passed n their way to the virgin wilds
of the West. For half a century thousands uton
'thousands T Hired through this natural gateway

Jreres, first entered the land of " eane and tur

only, practicable road for the transportation of
troops and heavy munitions of war from Cast
Tennessee into Kentucky.
Savannah. The city of Savannah furnishes
the next accessible harbor to which there is a sin

at mean low water on the bar. At high water,
vessels drawing fifteen ' feet can reaoli the city,
and those drawing eighteen feet can anchor with

most important Southern Atlantic cities, having

surrounded by rice swamps ; would bvj difficult of
approach by land, and the entrance by sea is
effectually guarded by Fort Pulaski, now in our
powession, oo Cockrpur Island, under whose guns
all vessels have to puss on entering. Fort Jack

far from Savannah, ie reached by an intricate
entrance, with ten feet of water on the bar. The
place has no connections nor importance, except
its proximity to Savannah.' Ossabaw Inlet, off

A WoTDEmm. Feat. We have a man here
in Boston that beats Barnaul out and out in the

written by Michael Nsrtradamus. a French physi

co&sisted, .of. enigmatical rhymes, embracing
f raven centuries of Prophecies, many of which,
says th Etatt Lis. hare been literally fulfilled,
especially that predicting the execution of Charles
I. of England, one hundred years before its occur

What Bonaparte Has Dne for Paris.
The most terrible feature of tbe present condi
tion of things in Paris ie the poverty. Since
1843 nothing has been seen like it. If you take
long walks in Paris now, you will most likely be
several times accosted by decently dressed people
of loth sexes, but principally elderly ladies, ac
tually begging. I have seen this phenomenon
perpetually within the last three weeks. It is
since the change in the weather that it is most to
be noticed ; for with bread, meat and wine at
tbe price they stand at now, it is impowible for
people with narrow means to live. In each of
the sad cases I mention the individuals belonged
evidently to the better class of society. Ten years
ajto 3,(Hf. per annum enabled a man and bis
wife to lire with some small comforts, employing
a femmt de mtnagc to do the housework, aud even
from time to time indulging in some very mo
dest pleasure, such as a day's excursion to
Versailles on a Sunday, or a fie day, or (once
or twice in the year) perhsps a third or fourth
rate place in one or the theatres. Now tbe matter
stands thus -.The apartment for which was paid
2U0f., now costs 500f. or COO. : tbe taxes are
nearly doubled ; trie Doors or which the man
necessarily uses plenty because they are made of
bad k-allier, and, if he has any employment, be
hashing walki to take the boors run away, at
the least, with another 100f. ; his clothes costs
bim 15 at the lowest, for every article of it is
dear and bad, and bis linen is worn out
quickly, because soap being too dear, washing es
tablishments resort to the most destructive pro
cesses lor cleansing it. Here, then, we have 50
or 00 gone before a man in the position we
stat' can stir out of his house or be capable of
moving about to gain bis livelihood. Out of bis
120 a year there remains to him 00 or 70
upn which to find food and firing, when bread
is at one Iranc the four pound loaf; wine for
merly 8 and 10 sous, is at 15 and 1G ; and meat
for the suiull consumer, at lOd. and Is. a pound,
and more, and when potatoes that used to cost
him 2 sous, now cost bitn 5 ; the quantity of
soup vegetables he used to get for three sous costs
him seven or eight ! And, be it noted, here we
have a yearly sum of income which is by no
means a law or common one ; and we have not
taken in account one single article ot expenditure
for a woman ; whereas men with 120 a year,
one may alint say. are invariably married men.
If from this relatively high income we revert to
the common run ot incomes of men of this
stamp, we find them range from 50 to 70 and
0. How are they to live? One expression of
mine requires explanation. I speak of the dear
est tif meat for a 'small coi sumer." For a
household that can afiord to buy, per week,
three or four joints, and three or four breasts of
mutton, or veal, with two or three pieces of soup
beef, a butcher will make arrangement by which
all meat shall have the average price ol, say 9d
a pound, but this only touches the large consu
mer. The small one, who purchases, each day,
the pound or so of meat requisite for his food
and that of his wife, if he baa one, pays for that
small quantity the highest price. lie will pay
for veal, for instance, (or the best sort of beef or
mutton), from lOd. to 14d. a pound. If the
class of man I have described - bas, (as is often
the case) any writing to take away from bii bu
reau and finish at borne, he must have light and
lamp-oil is at 15 sous a round ; besides which.
after bis insufficient food during the dav. this
night labor in the cold, when his meagre fire is
burnt out, and when he dare not afford himself
tho luxury of a bit of cold meat or a glass of
wine to prevent bim from retiring for a broken
sleep, which djes not refresh his shivering, worn-
out frame this night-labor tells upon his health
and the first slight illness prostrates him. . Then
utter ruin stares him in the face, for one doctor's
bill exhausts his means of bare existence for three
months. In these households there is nothing
over for Joy and grief. The child' that is born.
or the parent who dies, is equally a misfortune
which cannot be met, and the employe or the
poor gentleman in France bas not wherewithal
to pay for one hour's healthy relaxation from ex
hausting toil, or for the indulgence of one nat
ural sentiment. Lon. Rev.. Nor. i.

We mentioned recently that strong efforts wen
being made in tbe United States to induce Con
gress to subsidize a line of mail steamers between
California, China, Japan, 4c, and the subject ia
again brought forward with peculiar force in an
appeal to the Government by the merchants of
Iiuston, It is to be hoped that Congress will not
allow the session to pass without taking some
action on so important a matter. The petition
at last accounts was receiving signatures at the
Merchants' Exchange, Boston ; it was prepared
by Israel Lombard, Esq., of that city, ana sets
forth clearly and distinctly the reasons why Con-
1 gross should act, and act at once. It reads as
With a commercial marine not surpassed in
magnitude and completeness, aud a foreign com
merce second only to that one nation Great
Britain the humiliating facts exists that we are
almost entirely dependent on our great rival in
commerce ana the carrying trade for the quick
transit of letters and passengers to Brazil : the
Argentine Republic; the whe East and West
Coast of Africa ; Mauritius : Ceylon ; India ; and
the almost innumerable islands and countries
East of the Cape of Good Hope. Embracing
China and Siam, with Australia in forty degrees
South, up to Japan in nearly forty degrees North
of the Equator.
The mail and passenger facilities now most
needed, and which surpass in importance all
others, is the establishment of a line of mail
steamers between San Francisco, China and Japan.
Our great commercial emporium, the city of New
York, is, by a transit line across the Isthmus of
Panama and North PaciSc Ocean, about 2.500
miles i.earer of Nagasaki in Japan, and about
2,000 miles nearer to Shanghai in China, than
by the English transit line through London and
The average time f r letters to reach New York
or Baston by the English route is sixty-five days
from Shanghai and seventy days from 'Nagasaki.
By the proposed United States route the average
transit may lie accomplished in forty-two days
from Japan, and forty-five days from China, and
all important intelligence, by aid of the telegraph
now established ltween California and our At
Iantic cities, may be received in twenty-eight
days from China, and twenty-five days from
The great importance, both in a national and
commercial point of view, of such a line of mail
steamers is so ably stated by " The Chamber of
Commerce of the State of New York," in the
memoi:aI of that body now before Congress, it is
not necessary for us to offer in detail the reasons
which should influence the United States Govern
ment to grant, without delay, all necessary aid
for its accomplishment ; and we would only add
that the dangers to our vast commerce with the
East, now incident to civil war, may at any
moment " be greatly augmented by complications
with foreign nations," and. in the event of a
foreign war, our present mail facilities with the
East would be entirely destroyed

amount of wood, iron, brass or steel used in its construct ion,
but by the manner in which these materials are put together,

They make a tight lock-ttiek, alike on both sides of the

such explicit printed instructions as will enable persons who
may never have seen a machine to leach themselves.
