As paupertsni is not to be encouraged,
so ought vagrancy to be punished. The

sufficient to put down this evil. Let

of the State may be much improved,

A Singular Character.
There are few residents of Mobile
who have not seen the Sicilian, Andrea,
hobbling through our streets upon his
patcheid crutch, and walking staff, or
lying on sonic d'oor step basking in the
sun, always wrapped in the rags of pov
erty-a picture of fihh and patiperism
withoul. a parrallel in this or any 'other
city. Many report.a are given of his
early history, of the cause by. which lie
lost his leg,and of hiseccentricities; but
from these conflicting statements it is
difficult to arrive at. the I rut I; and no
inducement can be offered him to speak
of his past career. Importunities in
Ithis direction are most certain t0 be mta
by a fit. of passion calculated to deter the
most persevering from pressing the sub
ject too closely. But report states that.
in his boyhood lie. was one of JaRihfto's
crew, and lost his leg during atn action
between the Gulf. Pirate and English
man-of war.
This statement is without any .8inb
stantiml anuthority, but.there

las just been related to us, by a gentle.
man who has seen him idmost, daily . for
the last; fifteen fears. About eighteen
years ago A ndrea resided in New Or
leais, and while one day assisting to
put some heavy timber in a vessel under
going repairs, one of them fell upon and
crushed his leg. Amputation became
nesessary, and was performed at the
Marine Hospital in that city, and a few
years afterwards he came to Mobile,
where he'soon becatme an institution.
He ias relatives here in good circim
stances, who have made many efforts to
reforin.his vagr-ant habits, and once pre
vailed upon him with sich success as to
establish him in a fruit-stand, fitted up
for his 'benefit, in which lie continued
but a few days, wheni he broke tip his
stands and boxes, poitehed his fruit into
the dock, and without, giving a word of
explanation resumed his uicouth iahit.
.He has been repeatedly provided witi
good clothes, which sem to di-gust him
nore they approach gentility, and a few
days will find them torn tip, patched an'd
repatched, until all semblance df shape
has ben destroyed in them, and Andrea
rejoices ia his rags again. -. Strangers,
thinking hint an object of charity, some
times offer hiim money, which he almost
invariably thros~ys back at them in a fit
of rage andl passion.
When~ driven .by hunger lie will

part of the city lie mnay'-bs, and helps
himself to any article of food desirable
to him, and coolly emeorges into the street
again, without sayung."by your leave,"
or "thankt you." At the market lie has
been known to take uip a fish, sometimes
devotiring it raw, but whoa his appetite

DArTIs OF TN' SK.-A French
journal saysihat the soundings eflected
with referonce to the new trans-Atlantic
eable have eibled comparison to be
made of the different depths of the sea.
Generally speaking, they are not of any
great (tepth in the neighborhood of conti
ients; thus the Baltic, between Germa.
ny and Sweden, is only 120 feet deep ;
and the Adriatic, between Venice and
Trieste, 130 feet. The greatet depth
of t he channel between France and 1ung.
land does not. exceed -300 feet, while
to the southwest of Ireland, where the
sea is- open. the depth is more than 2,000
feet. The seas to the South of Eurbpo
are milch deeper than those is the inte
rior. In the narrowest parts of the
Straits of Gibraltar the depth is only
1,000 feet, while a little more to the
East it is 3.000 feet. On the coast of
Spain tihe depth is nearly 6,000 feet.
At 250 miles South of Nantucket (Sou',h
of Cape Cod) no bottom was found nt
.7,000 feet. The groactst depths of- all
are to be 'met with in the R4 'ern
Ocean. T 0te West. of tho Cape of
Good Hopo 16,000 feet, have been meas
tired, and to the West of St. Helena
37,000. Dr. Young estimates the aver
age depth of the Atlantie at25,000 feet,
and of the Pacific at 20,000.
