Cheap Board.-Tn old times, living was
much cheaper than it is at present.
When Dr. Franklin was serving an ap
prenticeship to the art of printing, he was
allowed 37& cents per wek for his board.
Of this he expended but about 171, being
only 21 cents a day.. What he saved was
laid out in books, for food for the mind.
Multitudes now might save at least one
half of what they expend for food, dress
and equipage. Then they could have
books, and also something to relieve the
wants of the suffering in the world, and
thus enjoy, the luxury of doing good.
Aiken Manfacory.-Last evening a
letter was recerved from Aiken, containing
two elegant Thread Lace Collars, manu
factured at that place, and sent down as a
present. Extra poatage only five cents.

Revival.-The religious excitement in
Montgomery,. Ala., says the Journal,
seems to continue without abatement.
Daily and nightly meetings have been
kept up, and.well attended in the Metho
dist Episcopal Ohurch, for nearly six
weeks; about one hundred and twenty
persons hape professed a change of heart
and life, some ninety of whom have con
nected themselves with the Church. In
stead of Bagging, the work seems to gath
er new interest as it rogress.
Singular Freak.-We find in an. old
paper, a description of a singular freak of
two young women in England, who had
been disappointed in marriage, and being
intimate friends, formed tie singular de
termination to live together .as mau and
wite, in some place where they were not
known. They drew lots to decide who
should be the man; the one it fell on as
sumed the name of James Han. They
then set out on their journey, and at last
came to Eppin, leased a house there,
and kept an inn. James Han was six
teen and his pretended wife seventeen
years old. They bad a servant, but each
performed the duties belonging to their
station.. They traded honestly. gained a
great deal of money, were respected, and
lived together thirty-four years. until at
last the wife 'lied. about which time the
discovery was made. James Hans had
often been foreman of juries, and was to
have been Church Warden, if the discov
ery had not been made.
A Valuable Discorery.-A New York
paper notices a discovery in that city, by
some individual, of the art of prelaring s
fluid composition or wash. upon well es
tablished chemical principles, which will
effectually protect all wood substances
against taking fire-so that such substance,
if coated with this wash, althougd sur
rounded by flames, would not itcur the
least danger of igniting by contact. To
owners of sbingled houses and other sisni
t., smiirtinl. in laiga.cities. where fires
are frequent this discovery offers a sure
protection. This wash may also be used
for coating the scenery of theatres, and as
it can be made of any color, and in no
instance requires to tbe used oftener tihan

on the 13111 August. M iss MARY E. TIt.LAN,
aged 16 years II months and 7 days. zhe was
a daughiter ofthe late Johnatlian Tilhunt, Esq..
of this District. She had left Lome but a day
or two to attend j protracted meeting in the
neighbornood, when she was uddenly attacked
with a violent fit of illness. which in twA short
weeks terminated her nortl existiace. rhe
skill of her physicians, and the uaremitting at.
tention oi her onuteious'friends, all proved un
availing. The disease hastened to its close
with unaitbaited violence. She exhibited thro'
out her illness that patience and lirtitude which
had always characterized liet conduct in health..
She had a weak and genle spirit that bowed
beneath affliction like the bulrush beneath the
dews of night. Her wind was wholly absor
tied in religions exercises, and remained clear
until a short time befbe sh' di-r Horlbst
luisca' zo~iimwtrs employed in giving herself
up to Jesus. After some religious exercises
which she desired should be held in her pres
e nce, she sang in at audhible voice, the follow
inig beantiful lines:
-But udrops of grief cani ne'er reptay,
Thel debt tof love I owe,
Hiere Lord I give myself away,
'T'is all th:it I can do."
She ihesi be-came delinous and remaisned so
to the close.
Scarce ansy indhividual could have beesi selec
ted fromn the comnsiity, whose dcatha would
have been so keenly felt aind so sincerely Ia
mented as hers. Her sweet disprosition had so
much endeared her to the cotnutatnity in which
she lived. that if humant sympath y anad hausman
kiandness could have mitigated the sufferings or
stayed the progress of the liatal disea. she
would have beena with us still-all loved her.
and-all were anaxions to give her somie pairiinig
token of their atiectiona.
Site was an affec-tiunate and dutiful cthld,
aiid devotedly attachedt to her brothters and sis

temper rendered her very dear to the little cir
clo ini which shte mioved ~She lias left a de-vo
