.Br The question is often asked, where do
Boa-birds obtain fresh water to ilake their
thirst, but ws have tevor teen it satisfaotorily
answered till few days ago. An old skipper,
with whom we were conversing on the eubjeot,
eaid that be had frequently seen these birds at
tea, far from any land that could famish them
water, hoveling round and nnder a storm-oloud,
clattering like duoks on a hot day at a pond,
and drinking in the drops of rain as they fall.
They will smell a rain-squall a hundred mtloa,
or eren farther -off, and eend for it with almost
Inconceivable swiftness. How long na-birds
ban exist without water is only matter of
ooEj'ecture, but probably their power! of endur
ing thirst are Increased by habit, and possibly
they go without it many days, if not for sev
eral weeks. . . .
pgr We learn that gold, eoal and iron oros
hare been reoently discovered on Swan-creek,
about three miles west of Havre-de-Grrao.
Quite a number of persons have, tot iceral
days of the present week, dcen digging for
gold on the Swan-creek mill property, owned
J t Mr. Myers, ant have obtained a number
of particles of the precious metal." We
heard a gentleman say that on Wednesday
evening, they washed about three dollars' worth
of gold out of a barrel of dirt. . On the same
stream, a short distance below, Wm. Nelson,
., has discovered stona-ooal and iron-ore.

Shocking Death Man Killed by a
Bull.
A few evenings slnoe one of these shooking af
falrs,whioh we often see recorded in the papers
goring by a bull occurred on Goodman-street,
in the town of Brighton, adjoining the east line
of the oity. Burkhardt Shaffer, a German 67
years of age, in the emp'ny of John Culver,
was killed by a bull owned by his employer.
The animal had been exhibited at the County
Fair, and was driven or led home by Shaffer,
between six and seven o'olook, by order of the
son of Mr. Culver, who followed home in a
short time, and repaired to the barn to see that
his directions were carried out. . He found the
bull in a field near the barn, drawing his
baiter, and the door of the bam open, which at
onoe leu nun 10 suepeot mat tnero was some
thing wrong. . . . , .
Mr. C. wont to the bull and found him
dooile, but was shooked to disoover that his
bead and horns were besmeared with blood.
Seeing a hoard fence near the barn broken
down, he led the ball that way, and there saw
the body of Mr.- Sohaffor Ivlni motionloss.
He secured the bull, and ran to the relief of
the old man, hoping to find him alive. Bat In
this he was disappointed. It was dear that
life was extinct. He called bit father and oth
ers, and ran for a surgeon. Dr. Miller -went
out, bat his services were of no avail with the
dead. It -was thought that the infuriated
animal hnd nttaoked Mr. Sohaffer and driven
him forolbly through the .fence, by which he

- In this doy of dearth' of great men, we re
joice to chronicle tho arrival in our Queen
City of tho illustrious orator, philosopher and
satarlst of the age J. N. Free. Bolts and
bars have been ineffectual to confine his
mind, while his body was in prison. This
self-sacrifice has been either unobserved by
tho daily journalists of the Buckeye State, in
which he was raised, or they have from
jealousy studiously refrained to do justice to
his electric powers, which, in an eye-wink,
con control at his .will the man of muscle, or
cope in argauiont with the most subtle phi
losopher. He lectures, and listening crowds
acknowledge his modesty and merit. It ia
the' brilliant contrast of appearance and
reality, that the serene brow of this man of
tne . peoples-one of us is radient with
thought, yet no look or expression of his
calm features would indicate that he was, as
he is, the wonder of the world, the bright,
particular star of the Western hemisphere,
the cynosure of all eyes, now that Kmperor
Napoleon has subsided' from his sensation

Ireland as it Was and It Is.
The Rev. Thomas Edgar, one of the Irish
deputation, dolivored a lecture in New York
city, Thursday night last, on "Ireland as it
Is," and feeling that a brief report would in
terest a large class of our readers, we insert
tho following from the Tribune:
He commenced by a repetition of the oft
repeated faot that the population of Ireland
has considerably decrcasod. He described
tho cruelties practiced by the authorities
npon the poor peasantry, when their houses
were pulled down over their heads, and they
were sent forth relentlessly into the street.
The retribution csrae in the shooting of
magistrates, which was done by wholesale.
This became so much of a habit that several
murders were committed by men in ordor to
swear the murder upon another, and got tho
1,000 reward whioh was offered for the con
viction of those who attempted to murder
magistrates. Tho famine had Its uses. It
sent forth it multitude of stroDg hands to
this country, which in seven years sent back
$37,600,000 to bring over their relatives.
Ireland, relieved by the famine, rose to re
markable prosperity. In 1848 and 1849 one
third of all the population of Ireland were
in the work-houses. Nowthero were but fifty
six thousand. In 1830, one hundred and
forty-five men were hanged in Ireland; in
1854 thore were but four men hanged.
There were three times as many Englishmen
aaogeo. to me minion now as irishmen. Ag
riculture has received an enormous impetus.
Millions of acres had been reolaimed. In is 7
the cattle of Ireland were valued at $60,000,000
umro umu moy wore toree years before. In
1857, Irish capital had increased $19,000,000
over what it was in 1854. In 1857, there was
1,020 miles of railway. In 1839 there were
9,500,000 of letters; two years ago there
were 41.000,000. In 1800, Ireland hnd 24
newspapers; in 1849, 140. In 1840 there was
In 74 towns not a sinsle bookseller. Th p..
Mr. Bdgar spoke of the beneficial working of
.1. - 1 j ...... . . . .
jauouuiuurou nsiaies Act. t naer this aot
one-twelfth of the surface of Ireland was sold
in three years. The men who formerly burned
the barns of others now had barns of their
own. One man was paying $500,000 a year
In wages 'to persons employed on his estate.
But while there had been a great average in
crease of consumption of luxuries in Ireland,
the consumption of spirits had considerably
decreased. The moral oondition of the country
was also vastly Improved. . ..
The Rev. Mr. Edgar concluded by an appeal
to the benevolence of the people of New York.
He has a peculiarly Irieh figure and expression,
and a very thick and rich brogue, tells a groat
many good old Irish stories, such as that of the
pig, who was in reality going to Cork, but
who thought he was going to Ballinssloe, and
said, with muoh gesture, that Old King Cole
as a Jolly old soul. He stated also that a
woman could make an attorney, and not only
could she make an attorney, but she could
make a man, and she oould make a man of a
man who was no man at all. Jt was with dif
ficulty that out reporter oould understand the
reverend gentleman,"ao peouliar and indistinot
was his pronunciation. Moat of the audience
appeared to be much pleased.
History of San Juan.
, A eorrtspondent of the Viotoria Qatettt ttivei
the following notes in regard to the population
of San Juan Island:
Somewhere in Deoember. 1853. nr t1m
Dart of 1854 about thA tim-f th. ma.n..
of tbe Legislature of Washington Territory,
whioh, in apportioning Couuty boundaries, dos
oribes Snn Juan and other islands of the
Arohipalago as part and parcel of the Connty
of Whatcom the Hudson Bay Company sent
uuuor, y-.r iwamer Denver a nook or (beep,
some 1,300 in number, in oharge of Mr. C. J.
Griffin, then a clerk and now a ohief trader in
the Hudson Bay Company's service, who has
sines resided upon the Island in oharge of the
Company's property. For three proceeding
years, dtrrrog-the proper season.- salmon fl.h.
eries, for whioh this locality offers superior in-
auooments, naa been pursued by employe of
m uuuijbuj, wno returnee, io tne fort at Vie-
lonaeosoou n eaon season ended: and no
permanent oconpatlon of the island was ef
fected until the landisg of the sheep at the
time abovo mentioned, qr nearly sevon years
after the ratification of tbe treaty. Up to the
present time no JSoglish subject has become a
settler noon the island, except the representa
tive of the oompany, alluded to in the fore
going, nor do the oolinitatioa lews which bear
upon the northrwett ooest possessions of her
majesty, recognise me existence of either pos
sessory or right of olaim to property in this
Island, or fealty in any inhabitants who at a
subsequent period might erect bouses there
upon. '-:'
Superiority of soil or pasturage facilities
were the considerations induoing tho transpor
tation hither of Hudson Bay Company stock,
as theirlnfluence over thelndiansobviated those
difficulties whioh less fortqnate Individuals had
to overoome or submissively bear in the on
slaught of savage marauders. It is hardly
reasonable to suppose that had the oompany no
doubt as to the Crown's rights in the island, so
muoh superior and more eligible soil, where
white oak, cedar, fir and pine abound, and
where broad acres of unobstructed grass cov
ered plain Invitingly promise abundant and
almost spontaneous crops, would dave been
negleoted, and a comparative Bden turned into
sheep pasture, at a time when such strenuous
efforts were, or are at least supposed to have
been made to populate tbe neighboring north
ern Indians.
RiuABiABLt, We learn from a gentleman,
well acquainted with tho facts, that some time
In March last an old gentleman, residing fur
many years in Davie, was sitting in his house,
few feet from an open window, when a dove
flew in and alighted en his shoulder. He kept
his seat, but oalledhis daughter, who was In an
adjoining room, to come quickly. She oamo
in, and, pointing to the bird, he told her to
take It off and put it in a cage, and take care
of It as long as it lived. She gently lifted the
bird off and caged it as direoted, hor father re
marking to her at the same time, "My race is
nearly over; I shall die in two weeks." He
was then in ordinary health; bat, strange to
Say, he died that day two weeks. The bird Is
yet in its cage, and in the possession of the
family, who regard it wiih feolings of peculiar
Salisbury (N. C.) Watchman.
MANURS.-rTho sweeping of a blacksmith's
shop, where char ooal is used and horses a bod,
are excellent-for manure.. Everything of a
horny or booy su butanes is of great val uo. So
woolen rags, old boots and shoes, hair, wool?
feathers, all should be carefully saved, and put
into the compost heap. 1 .- " .

About Meerschaum Pipes.
The Philadelphia North Amerienn lays :
As you smoke tobacco it distils in essential
oil acrid and offensive to a degree. Upon the
inside of a poroelain or common day pipe, the
oil crystalsses and the pipe soon becomes pun
gent. The meerschaum, on the contrary, is
highly porous and absorbs the ell of tobacco,
though in a manner that we oannot explain.
The new pipe at first becomes straw-eolorsd on
the outside, a shade which deepens nntil it be
comes as black as ebony. Tbe nure oil of to
bacooit absorbs, and consequently the blacker
It becomes, the more exquisitely does the to
baooo taste. After tbe pipe. is onos saturated
with the oil, it absorb no more, and the pipe
is always " sweet," and never acquires the rank
and offensive odor peouliar to other pipes.
'This is the solo merit of the meerschaum
that it is perfectly neat and nearly inodorous.
What we eannot account for is this : Though
the pipe is perfectly white when new, and
must, of course, be first eolored on tbe inside,
yet, though it becomes colored externally till
of a jetty blackness, you will find on breaking
it, that the inside is perfectly white. Another
peculiarity of the meoraohaum is, that when
heated, you may perforate it with a pin, and
that when cold the mark made by tbe pin is
no longer visible.
As some of our readers may be interested in
meerschaum smoking, a few directions as to the
mode of smoking the pipe may not be anils s.
Imprimis, then, if a smoker pulls away at his
newly purchased twenty dollar meerschaum as
be would at a common day ono, the odds are
i oar. ne win oaicine tne inside of the bowl, and
thus prevent It from coloting ever afterwards.
In this case, the stem, if it bo also moerschanm,
will become black as jet, while the bowl will
he a dirty yellow,
It must at first be smoked carefully and
slowly, not being permitted to become too hoi
to be held in the hand; while the exulting pos
sessor of the article will remember that, when
heated, the least touch will scratch its surface.
The best plan is to take It to a glovers and
have a piece of bupkskln sewed olosely around
the bowl unUl the coloring process is accom
plished. " ' '
With these precautions- the genuine meer
schaum is eolored in about a year'i time to the
desired blackness.' Tbaprooess, however, may
be faoilltatod and this we give as a piece of
our own private informstion-by saturating a
piece of sponge in perfumed sweet oil, Insert
ing it in the bottom of the bowl of the pipe,
just reaohing above the bore, and placing a
button mould over it to separate the tobacco
and proteot the sponge from burning. The oil
assists the process of absorption and curries
with it the oil of tobacco through the pores.
If otto of roses be used with the sweet oil, it
will Impregnate the pipe with an enduring
perfume that will render it especially delight
ful to the smoker, however abhorrent it
may he to those who eschew smoking and
smokers.
The same paper tells of a "splendid article
is tbe way of a meerschaum whioh is In the
possession of Dr. Morris J. Aseh, of Jefferson
Medical College. It formerly belonged to tho
King of Prussia, and was colored in a most ef
fectual manner. Its royal owner earned it to
be smoked by a whole regiment of soldiers un
til it was as black as sntbrooite, one men pass
ing It to his oomrade as soon as he-bad en
joy el it sufficiently himself. "

Talent and Genius.
' The "Professor" at the last Breakfest-Table
discourses of these 'two gifts as follows'
The world is always ready to receive talent
with open arms. Very often itdoes not know
what to do with genius. . Talent is a docile
creature. It bows its head meekly, while the
world slips the collar over it. It backs into
the shafts like a lamb. It draws its load
cheerfully, and is patient of the bit and ol
the whip, . But genius is always impationtof
its harness;, its wild blood makes it hard to
train, i h..e,: , t. ::., it , :t.
Talent seems, at first, in onn sptiba. Viiulmr
than genius namely, that it is more uni
formly and absolutely submitted to tho will.
and therefore more distinctly human in its
character.. Genius, on the other hand, is
much more like those instincts which govern
the admirable movements of the lower, crea
tures, and thereforo seoms to have something
of the lower, or animal oreaUtro. A gooso
flies by a chart which the Royal Geograph
ical Society could not mend. ; A poet, like tho
goose, sails without visiblo land-marks to
unexplored regions of truth, when philoso
phy has yot to lay down on its' atlas. Tho
philosopher gets tract 1y observation; the
poet trusts to his'lnner sense, nnd makes tho
straighter and swiftor line. y(
And yet, to look at it in another light, i.i
not even the lowest instinct more truly di
vine than any voluntary human act done bv
the suggestion of reason? 'What- is a bee'
hrchitooture but an ntdbstrncted . divine
thought? What is a builder's approximative
rule but on obstructed divine thought of tho
Creator, a mutilated and imported dopy ol'
some absolute rule Divino Wisdom has estab
lished, transmitted' through a human soul on
an image through clouded glass? '
Talent is a very common family trail;
genius belongs rather to individuals; just ns
you find a giant or a dwarf in a family, but.
rarely, a whole brood of either. Talent i
often to be envied, and genius .very com
monly to bo pitied. It stands . twico tho
chance of the other of dying in a hospital,
in jail, in debt, in bad repute. It is a per
petual insult to mediocrity; its every word is
a trespass against somebody's vested ideas
blasphemy against somebody's. Q'm, or in
tangible private truth. ... j-

SBI.T.1NO A Wrps. The disgraceful exhibition
of selling a wifo took place lately at Dudley,
England. Hundreds of people were, congre
gated ia Hall street, the scene where the shock
ing speotaole was to be seen. A man whose
name is I'onsotte, and who has been living
with his wife at a place oalled Dixon's Greet
for the lost three weeks, caused a rumor to
spread that ha should sell his wife os a certain,
night, as he had found her to be neither " worse
nor better" as tho parson said. Accordingly,
on Tuesday night, for the second time he took
bis wife, with a halter round her neck, through
the turn-pike gate at Dixon's Green, compelling
the toll-keeper to take toll, and led her about
three-quarters of a mile down to Hall-street,
Dudley, opposite' the brewery,' where, amid
vast .number of 'people, tbe disgraceful sigh'
of offering her for sale was to be seen.' The,
first bid was ld., and ultimately reached CJ.
lier husband, in bis' ignorance, thinks tbi?
repeated three times she has actually no el aim

Wednesday, and , was" followed" to his grout

people hooting "who sold his wife." a v'
