bave been received by some of our merchants. The

conduct of the consul, and if half what is said proves
true he should be removed. -JV. B. Standard.
Panama Hats. Guyaquil is tbe great depot for
Panama hats, eight hundred thousand dollars
worth being sold annually. The grass of which they
are made is found chiefly in the neighboring pro
vince of San Cbristoval. They can be braided only
in the night or early in the morning, as the heat in
the day time renders the grass brittle. It takes a
native about three months to braid one of the finest
quality, and I saw some hats which looked like fine
linen, and are valued at $50 a piece, even here.
IS IxTEixiOEJfT People ! Talk about the Salem

The following s from a late paper :
It is not a month since a poor old man in Edscx,
England, upward of eighty years of age, a French
man, deaf and dumb, and who lived by himself io a
small wretched hut, was killed by his neighbors in
the village because they believed that be was pos
sessed of some supernatural power and could make
them ill or restore them to health by bis incantations !
The poor creature was beaten with a stick, thrown
into a pond, and when he got out, covered with
slime and dirt, and thoroughly saturated with water,
was seized again and again thrown into the pond, eo
that after he escaped from his tormentors.be was taken
with a fever and died. One of his chief persecutors
was a female, one Emma Smith a married, woman,
aged SC, who believed that she bad been bewitched
by the aged necromancer. fa
Nrw Automatons. Tbe St. Paul Pioneer says :
It has long been the boost of Europeans that the
highest degree of mechanism, such as is required for
designing and manufacturing automata has never
been found outside of France or Germany. This
can no longer be said ; for a gentleman of this city
baa produced, after three and a half years of close
application, some of tbe moat wonderful automata
known. They consist of six figures, full size of life,
- three of each sex. d rested in the height of fashion,
and so closely resembling living persons as to deceive
all but the closes: observers. These figures appear
on the stage each with a harperion. and at -a sign
given by the leader, they salute the audience and
commence playing. They perform a large number
of melodies, keeping perfect time aod producing full
harmony. This is, without doubt, one of the finest
specimens of mechanical ingenuity the world has
, It is circulated that an iron ship of 1,000 tons in
ternal measurement, will carry a dead weight cargo
of 1,500 toes, which, added to the weight of the
ship, 775 tons, gives a displacement of 2,275 tons.
A wooden ship of' the same internal measurement
has a greater displacement in the ratio of 1,319 to
1.221. and therefore has a displacement of 2,473
tons. This displacement, reduced by the weight of
the ship 1,000 tons. leaves a dead weight of 1,473
tons, being within two per cent, of the cargo of the
A Parisian physician, considering typhus fever to

A Rebel Bill or Fare. The Chicago Tribune
says : We are indebted to the courtesy of J. II. Early,
Surgeon of the Seventeenth Iowa Regiment, for the
following copy of a bill of fare found in the rebel
camps at Vicksburg. While it is a capital specimen
of burlesque, it is no less a melancholy burlesque
upon tbe rebel rations of mole flesh indulged ia
by them daring the last ten days of the siege :

The trunk of the celebrated Shakepeare Oak'
at Windsor, which was recently blown down, is to be
converted into ornamental furniture for the princi
pal rooms of Windsor Castle. The tree is supposed
to have been flourishing 200 years previous to the
reign of William tbe Conqueror, and there is little
doubt but that it is the identical tree alluded to in
Shakspeare's Merry Wives of Windsor." Some
portions of the trunk are nearly in a state of petrifac
tion. At a late review in Berlin, a dragoon, whose
girths had given way, kept in the ranks and rode
through the manoeuvres without a saddle. Tbe fact
having come to the King's knowledge, be said to bis
aid-de-amp: Say nothing about it, gentlemen; if
the Chambers were to hear of it, they might etrike
out saddles from the war estimates."
There is a story circulating in Naples that a mason
there was visited in the night by two strangers who
took him in a carriage, blindfold, to a strange
house, where he was led up stairs and ordered on
pain of death to make a hole in the wall of a chamber
sufficiently large to admit a coffin. This done, a
coffin was brought in, and a young laly handsomely
dressed was dragged into the room and forced into
it. The lid was screwed down and the coffin was
walled up by the mason, who was then again blind
folded and taken to tbe sea beach, paid ten piastres,
and told be might tetl all be knew. He did tell tbe
police, but could not describe the house.
The Three Great Navies. The New York Jour
nal of Commerce thus states, in the aggregate, the
navies of tbe three leading commercial nations, com
pared last year, as follows :
Iron-clad l. Steam vessels
France. 1 325
England 16 Il
All classes, 427. t IucluJmg alL
France and England each have four iron cased
ships at sea. Tbe former has two more nearly, if
not quite, ready for sea, and ten on the stocks.
England has four more lauched and eight in an
advanced state of construction. Tbe United States,
at tbe date of the last annnal report of the Secretary
of the Navy, had fifty-four iron clads, including
thirty-two armored vessels (many of which were
unfinished,) and a number bave been added since.
Chableston. It is now well ascertained that the
Rebels have two. and perhaps three, lines of obstruc
tions barring our progress into the upper harbor.
The first line stretching from Fort Sumter to Fort
Moultrie, consists of a heavy chain, supported by
buoys, so as to float about six feet under water.
This it is believed, can be easily overcome or re
moved. The second line, crossing the channel about
the middle ground, is formed of spiles driven into
the bottom, with heavy cables interlaced from spile
to spile, near the water line. This is more formida
ble, but means will be devised to test its strength.
In front of these obstructions our ironclads will meet
a very severe concentrated fire from Forts Johnson
and Ripley, and a series of one and two-gun batteries,
which line the shore in front of Mount Pleasant and
on the James Island side. Formidable as these
difficulties are, there is no doubt entertained that
they will be finally overcome by the sagacity and
determination of the army and navy. It would be
premature, however, to look for an early ending of
the siege. If we hold Charleston by January our
progress would have been more rapid than is now
The Atlantic Telegraph. Mr. Cyrus W. Field
bas returned from England. He brought with him
a specimen of tbe new Atlantic cable, which is the
best submariue cable ever made, and is far superior
to the one that was first laid. It is about three
fourths of an inch in diameter, composed of seven
small copper wires, strongly pressed together till
they look almost like one, surrounded by gutta
percha about one-third of an inch thick, and then
by ten strong iron wires twisted rope fashion. These
wires are wrapped in the best Russian hemp. All
the materials are of the first quality, and a section of
tbe cable presents an appearance of great solidity
and strength. Glass, Elliott & Co., the contractors,
have commenced the manufacture of the cable, and
will prosecute it with the utmost energy and dispatch.
They will receive about $3,000,000 lor making and
laying the cable, and turning it over in complete
working order, to the company. Glass, Elliot & Co.,
bave never entertained the slightest doubt ot tbe
entire practicability of the Atlantic Telegraph as a
scientifio undertaking and a commercial venture,
and illustrate their faith by accepting a large part of
their pay in stock. Tbe entire arrangement and
conduct of the expedition is devolved upon Glass,
Elliot & Co- It is thought that they will try to
charter the Great Eastern, which could easily carry
the cable, and would ride over the waves with the
desirable steadiness. "The distance between the two
coasts is about 1.640 nautical miles; but Glass,
Elliot & Co., will make 2,000 miles of the cable.
The laying is to be done in June, July or August of
