laot had been released from prison, the shiD re
turned from the Arctic Ocean, having made a suc
cessful cruise. The respondent sent a written
request to the libelant to report himself on board
the ship, but he refused to comply with that re
quest ; and the Conul of the Lnited States, upong
application to him, hesitated or declined to issued
an ofScial request to the Marshal to ar.r.rel
libellant as u deserter, under the provisions of the
cnicea states Laws una Ireaty stipulations.
And. now the libellant presents bis libel before
this Court, claiming that he is entitled to his dis 3
charge from the ahirpin contract, by reason olfej
the acts of the master; that he should be paid
wages up to this dat?, at the lay for which he
agreed to serve flr the voyage ; and that he should
bo awarded damages, for alleged maltreatment at
the hands of the respondent.
Before the Court can sustain the HbeHant's claim
for waes, it must appear either that he has fulfill-H
ta the contract of shipment upon his part by serv-
ing till the end of the voy.-ige, or that he is unable?
to do so through physical disability, or that he iofc?
prevented trom doing so by the act of the master
or owners of the ship. It is not contended ois1
bebalt ct the libellant that either of the iirst two
pre-requisites lias been shown to exist ; but it hP
claimed that h i rfIvi.l from th nr!irr:. tlnn tt,

acts of the master, and that he was justified inh

alleged, had before displayed a cruel and tyranni-f.
cal disposition. n

the libellant can be held discharged from the fur-j

regularly triei before a jury, and acquitted of theM
crime imputed to him, he might have returned tou
bis duty on the ship with credit, completed

the entire voyage. IJut his discharge by the Su-S
preme Court, without his having undergone a trial, y
operates merely as a technical acquittal, creating a
bar to his being prosecuted criminally, and does
not preclude the master or owners from setting up.
as a defence to the libelant's claim for wages, the
plea that he attempted to fire the vessel. The
libellant. by commencing the present suit, volun
tarily challenged his accusers to produce the proofed
of his guilt; and they have done so. A large nuai
ber of the officers and crew attached t. the vessel at
the time of the occurrence in question have ivenj
their testimony before the Court, and the weighty
of that testimony is largely against the libellant. 0
Had the an tpstimonv hen spread before a lurv.vj

thts ship on the 11th of April, and that too without
a badovr oi provocation, so l.ir as now appears,
and to the imminent peril of all on board. HisJJ
claim for wazes is therefore conclusively barred. Q
The Iibeilant' claim for damages for alleged X
Miltreatment at the hands of the master may be3

trumJ up demand never was presented, even be-J
fore a Court of Admiralty. There is not one iotap
of proof to sustain it; and the libell int3 effront-g
TJ ID putting forward SUCh a claim is only equalled
by the adroitness With which he has PUCCetded in ?
completely deceiving and uii-Ieading a ProctorJ
of the Court, as to induce him to 8ign his name tog

The last r.rayer of the libellant is. that he be de-
f dared absolved from the further fulfillment of his
'contract, by reason ot the act 01 ine respondent.
''But nothin" has been shown in the whole course of
fthe respondent's conduct which would authorize
" the Court so to hold or declare. No act yet done
by Liia amounts to a violation or legal dotermina-
ti,.n of the contract. In causing the libellant to be
Kconfined on board the vessel, and in endeavoring to

As Editor's Opixios ox Billiabijs. Somebcdr
wrote to the Bueyzus Journal, a letter of inquiry as
to Milliards, to whom the editor replies as iollows :
les sir we can tell you all about billiards. It is a
game consisting of two iaen iu their f-hirt sleeves
panching balls about no a table, and presenting the
keeper of the table with fifteen cents, or, as is com
monly the case in this country, setting him to mark
it down. 1 hi s last mentioned custom has given them
the title of billiard markers. If you have a decided
genius for the game you will make a superior player
at the expense of about 100 dollars. Blacksmiths,
carpenter. &c. play it for exercise. It was invented
Lj a ehrewd saloon keeper, who was not satisfied
with the profits of whit-ky. and was too much opposed
to temperance to water it."
Pekpetcal Motiox. A Vermont Yankee claims
to have invented a self-propelling wheel, or perpet
ual motion. A correspondent of the Boitoii Journal
thus describes it :
It is a sim r!e wheel, runs ou gudgeons, and is in
dependent of any outside s-prin, weight or power, as
a propeller. On the saiue axle on which the metal
wheel ia fixed is a band wheel, t n which a band runs
over a sru.il! pulley that drives a tniall circular saw.
Set it on a table and remove the brake, and it will
start itself and run with great velocity, driving the
saw. It is the simplest thing in the world, but I
cannot intelligibly decrile it ; but it is at once un
derstood by the beholder. It will l.ot, nay, cannot
stop without a brake, as it is so fixed by means of
balls and arms that the descending side of the wheel
is perpetually further from the center of motion
than the opposite uscenJin

cleverness, ejects ont of his lube like mcuth one drop
of water, which is so well-directed and po swiftly
shot forth, that it never fails to knock the fly into the

fish darts upon his prey, and eagerly devours it ;
thus supplying us with another instance of the di
