ad been left by the wounds he had received in

ACCIDENT.-A few days ago, Dr. C. Wheeler,
ofWcaton, in company with his two sisters,
was returning in a buggy from the residence of
Dr. Barns, and when opposite the Narrows, on
the West Fork river, the horse became fright
ened and took a fearful leap down a precipitous
embankment sonic thirty feet into the river.
The water at this point is some ten or twelve
feet deep, and the horse and buggy went entire
ly under. The horse soon arose, and guided by
the.Doctor, soon succeeded in swinning with
the buggy into shallow water, from which, with
the assistance of several of our generous citi
zel-;, who were fortunately near the spot. the
iDoctor succeeded in landing the ladies safely
and uninjured upon the~ shore. With :he excep

Mar.us Aurelius, an .emperor, distiuguished
for his piety, says:, " Tragedies were -first
brought in and instituted to put men in nliqid
of worldly chances and casualities - After thi
tragedy, the Comedia Vetus, orancient comedy,
was brgujlht in which had the liberty to inveigh
against personal vices.
Martin Luther, on the subject of the stage'
says: "In ancient times tlie dramatic art has
been honored by being inade subservient t.re
ligion and rhoiality; and in the most enlightin
ed country of antiquity, in Grece, the theatre
was supported by the State. The dramatic na

justly celebrated, and from them we may cou

As to the character, position and standing of
actors, erroneous impressions exist; some may
be inclitied to think that they stand outside the
pale of society. But this is false. It is with
them as with members of every other profes
sion. Those whose ability, conduct and talent
entitles them to respect, are always esteemed.
The profession of an actor was highly esteeMd
among the Greeks. Eschylus held command at
Marathon, under Miltiades. He was an actor
and author. Sophocles held command under
the great Pericles. Euripides was a distinguish
ed ofieer. Roscius was the intimate friend of
Cicero. Laclius was the friend of Scipio Afri
ca:mts. In modern times, Mrs. Clive, Garrick,
Cibber, Kenmble, Kean, Mathews, Cooke, Quin

Mor.Assrs rrnoM Ixnus Coax.-Mr. George Se
Kintzi, of Exeter townshuip, Berks county, Penn.,
called at the ohice of the ieadinug Gazette -a day
or two ago with two samples of syrup or niolasses,
one made from the common Indian corn and the
other lfrom the Chinese sugar cane. The-first,it
is stated, was of' the colour and consistence of
the best molasses, and had'a pleasant sweet fla
vor. Mr. Kintzi tried but a small experiment ini
making this syrup. He took eight corn stalks,
ut off' at the root and at the ear, crushed them
in a cider mill, and pressed the juice out with
his hands. A quart of sap was thus obtained,
which, after boiling tirty minutes, yielded one
pint of beautiful syrup. .The Chinese sugar cane
was subjected to the same process, and yielded
about the same quantity of syrup, but not so
thick nor of so fine a flavor as that made from
the common Indian corn.

ni~.-The letter of Professor Morse, which we
published, gives a perfectly clear and understand
able explanation of the cause of the breaking of
the Atlantic Telagraph cable, and fixes the blame
of the disaster where it probably belongs. Mr.
Brighit, the head engineer, who had the laying of
the cable under his sole direction, appears to have
been the culprit. He had pat, the blame upon
" a mechanic," but Professor 'Morse says that he
ordered one of his subordinates to apply the
brakes,- the " mechanie"s'hesitated, Mr. Bright
" generously" gave a certificate exonerating all
persons on hoard the ship from any blame-for
the disaster. Another very important fact stated
byl'rofessor Morse, is that the cable was running
out but very little faster than-the rate-at which
the ship was going. - -
