A Ltv: MaMAID, AND NO MISTAK..
A prodigious excitemen prevails in Ire
laud, especially in the North; in conse
quence of an actual living Mernaid, which
was recently caught in a salmon net at
Iatnneraw Point, in the county of Done
gal. There can be no mistake in this fact
as five or six pipers corroborate it, in the
important poitfts, but the "Derry Sentinel"
and the "Fermenagh Journal," are the
most enthusiastic and particular in their
descriptions. The first announcement ap
peared'ibthe Sentinel, as follows:
A tesaaid, and no mistake,-A very
general disbelief in the existence of the
Mermaid is likely to receive a severe shock
from the truth of the following statement:
A creature in every respect answering, the
usual description of the *"ea woman," was
caught lately in the salmon nets at liunne
raw Point, neat Faban, county Donegal.
She is at present under the protection of a
gentleman of that neighborhood. who has
kindly permitted the country people, who
are flocking.in hundreds about the jilaceto
"see and believe." The members of the
Londonderry Natural History Society, we
understand, are to investigate this extraor
dinary phenomenon, for the purpose of
sending an immediate report of their ob
novel moqeter should survive the sudden
change in her situation, she will he sent to
Viscount Melbourne as a present to the
Queen; if not, the boly will be preserved
in spirits, and will grace the uov forming
museum or our local society."
The effect of this notice was, that at
least a fourth of all the inhabitants of Der
ry, who couldallord the expense, procee
ded in a body to Honeraw, where they
were admitted to an inspection of the sin
gular creature; which is thus described in
the Fermanagh Journal.
The Mermaid.-This is certainly a sea
woman; awl has such an expression of in
telligence in its countenance, that we are
absolutely inclined to believe that it is a
creature of reason, rather than of instinct.
We do itot mean to ininuate that it has
any notion of abstract ideas; but the fact
is, that there is an appearance of confu
sion about it that would seem to indicate
sentiments of shame, fear and sa pplication.
It weighs about seventy pounds, and is al
together human in its outward organization.
from the head to the navel, where the fish
begins to develope itself, nnd the remain
der is formed very like the extremity of a
large dolphin. The skin of the face and
the breast is a whitish brown-the eyes
are black, and the no'se purely aquiline;
and its eye brows, lips andchin, are mod
els for a sculptor. The hair is long and
thick; and the crenture's principal amuse
mnens is to stroke it downward with her
webbed, but otherwise, very perfect fin
gers. It looks to he twe-lye or fourteen

annals of Poland; the witness of the an

"'On the lower side of the church by the

the tomb of one nobler in my eyes titan all

several ladies, joined me at the tonmb. We
could not speak each others language; we
were born&lived thousands of miles apart,
& we were strangers itn our thoughts and
feelings,in all our hopes and prospects, but
we had a bond of sympathy at the grave
of Kosciusko. One of the ladies spoke
French, and I told them that in my far
distant country, the name of their nation's
idol was hallowed; that schoolboys had
erected a monument to his memory.
They knew that he had fought by the side
of Washington, but they did not know ..
that the recollection of his services was s ehr
still so dlearly cherished in America; and
we all agreed that it was the proudest tri

write merely his name on his monument.
It meant that it was needless to add an

An Old-Fashioned Eclipse.-The edi
tor of the C,ncinn;,ti Post, (whose memory
is a complete store husez of old tineie oe-.
currences.) gives the following interesting
account of the Eclipse which occurred it
1806. The editor should indulge his rea
ders with more of the past:
"It was our happiness to be at Provi
dence, R. island, when the total Eclipse
of June, 1806, took place.-the day was
perfectly bright-the phenomenon con
menced between 11 and 12 o'clock, and
after the sun became totally obscured, it
remained so for more than half an hour.
Its operation upon animated nature was
truly ant awfully sublime. The birds
flew about in evident distress and terror,
the domestic fowls ran about in all direc
tions cackling as in a fright. lorses gal
.loped round their pastures neighing; while
the burned cattle Which seemed more af
frighted than the rest, lore up the earth
with their horns and feet in madness-all
this uproar was followed by the silence of
midnight, when the eclipse was complete;
the birds retired to their resting places; the
fowls...o their roosts, the hogye, to their
stalls,' and the cattle,.to-their mangers.
while the stare shone forth in their beauty,
ani all was still.

ever equal to it."
The Ancient Greek and Roman Table.
-The dif'erence between the diet of the.
ancients and that of the moderns is very
striking. The ancient Greeks and Ro
mans used no alcoholic liquor, it being un
known to them; nor coflee. nor tea. not
chocolate, nor sugar, nor even butter; for
Galen informs us he had seen butter but
once in his life. They were ignorant of
tlhe greater number of our tropical spices,
as cloves, nutmeg. mace, ginger, Jamaica
pepper, currypimento. They used neither
buckwheat, nor French beans, nor spin
nach, nor sago, tapioca. salad, arrow-root.
nor potato, or its varieties not even the
common, but a sort of marsh grown bean;
nor many of our fruits, as the orange, or
tamarind, nor American maize. On the
other hand, they ate substances which we
now neglect-the mallow, the herb or ox
tongue, the sweet acorn, the lupin. They
used raddish, lettuce, sorrel. They liked
the flesh of wild asses, of little dogs, of the
dormouse, of the fox, of the bear. They
ate the flesh of parroquets, and other rare
birds, and of lizards. They were fond of
a great many fish, and sheil fish, which
we now hold in no esteem. rThey em
ployed as seasonings, rite, and assafetida.
