TUESDAY JORNIXG,.JtnrE 7, 1853.
A Stisdisb. Beiwixt two and three weeks
since, a Scotchman of very agreeabld manners and
prepossessing appearance, presented himself to his
' countrymen in this city, stating that, owing tolong
' continued sickness in Louisville, and subsequently
in Bowling Green, he had been reduced to great
necessity. The name that he jave himself, wa3
"Wit. Stewart Jack. He stated that ho was a na
tive of Lanark, had been brought up to the dry
goods business in oue of the first louses iu Glas
gow, and thai his desire was to find employment,
by which ho could support himself. Ifis specious
manner made him many friends among his coun
trymen, and he was received on trial in the count
ing room of Messrs. Snow, Mackenzie & Co.
The lamented death of Mr. Snow last week, call
ed Mr. Mackenzie's attention from the business so
much that more confidence was reposed in him
than was probably right to show to a stranger. Ho
was found to be invaluable iu a business point of
view; but on Saturday night he got possession of
the key of the safe to lock up the books that had
been in use during the day, and took that opportu
nity to abstract from the safe, in notes, $10G;
Graves & Siianklaxd's check on IIocson & Wheless
for ?42 CO, payment of which has been stopped, a
gold watch valued at $50, and a silver watch worth
He left Mr. Mackenzie's house, on Vine street,
on Saturday night, after supper, since which time
he has not been heard of. The robbery was not
discovered until Monday morning at 7 o'clock
The said Wm. Stewart Jack is 25 or 28 years of
age, i 3 about 5 feet 9 inches liigh, of fair complexion
and hair of a dark brown, speak3 frequently with
broad Scotch accent, has an agreeable manner and
a fund of information. He has some cutaneous
disorder which shows itself in an eruption on his
hands and various parts of liis bod-.
He has an entire new suit of clothes furnished
him by the house in which he wa3 temporarily em
ployed, consisting of a bombazine coat and panta
loons, checked waistcoat, leghorn hat, and boots,
It i3)robable that he has taken a route to Charles
ton, S. G., and editors there would do well to put
psople there on their guard, lest he deceive
others as he has those who trusted him here.
Stabbing. There was an affray at the Rail
road Depot in this city on last Sunday evening be
tween Mr. Weatiiekfobd, one of the night police,
and a man named SrxsKT, in which the latter

sioned by Syxsky using some abusive epithets to
Weatherford's wife. Weatherford immediately

THE ECLIPSE ANDSnOTWELET
The Louisville papers publish a mass ot evidence
to prove that the Eclipse made' the run -Vo1nNexy
Orleans to Louisville hi Jess time, Jihan the Shot-"
well. Capt. STtJRGEOS;of the, Eblipse, says ;
It miist bo clear to all who have considered the
question, that it can be correctly settled but in one
way, onu inai is uy ascertaining the exact
time each boat left a fixed point in New Orleahs,
by the same time, and the arrival at Portland,in tha
same way. Appended to this card arc copies of
certificates, (originals of which may be seen at
the office of Benedict & Carter,) from gentlemen
of the Highest respectability in New Orleans, tho
correctnetB of whose statements will not be as
sailed, establishing the fact beyond the possibility
of a doubt, that by the same watches, held on both
our boats from the same poinisof view, the Shotwell
IeftN. Orleans from 16jto 19 minutesearter than
the Eclipse and similar-certificates, from gentle
men of equal respectability in this city, and Port
land, which as conclusively establishes the fact
that the Eclipse reached Portland earlier, than the
Shotwell and tkui thamain faclthat Uierunoflhe
Eclipse was quicker than that of the Shoticell is irrc-
e -ft -
There are few impossibilities, but it is clearly
on impossibility for the A. L. Shotwell to leave
New Orleans earlier and arrive at Portland later
than th&Eclipre, and yet make the trip from port
to port in less lime let the figures published by
the officers of either boat be whit'they may.
There ia another point to which I wish to call
public attention. I allude to the run to Cairo.
There was usual interest felt in the run or these
boats lo Cairo, and the published time of the Shot-i
well makes her run a few minutes the quickest."
But the certificates I now pubii.-h from those in
charge of both the wharf boats at Cairo, show that
the Shotwell passed that point from 8 to 9 minutes
earlier in the day than the Eclipse. The New
Orleans certificates show that the Shotwell left
that point from 16 to 19 minutes earlier than the
Eclipse, consequently tho run of the Eclipse to
Cairo is conclusively proven to have been from S
to 10-minutes the quickest.
The certificates are all to the effect of the fol
New Orlehks, May 25, 1853.
This is to certify that the Eclipse left N. Orleans
by my watch, at four minutes to ten o'clock, A. M.,
and the Shotwell at twenty-one minutes before ten
A. M. Difference 17 minutes.
Jso. S. Vallis.
I hereby certify that I took the time of the
Eclipse and Shotwell passing Cairo, on their late
trips, and by my watch and time piece, which had
not been altered, snd which I do not believe vari
ed during the intermediate days, there was a dif
ference of eight minutes in favor of the Shot
well. Tnat is the Eclipse passed Cairo bv mv
time piece, Tuesday, 17lh May, at 2 o'clock and
24 minutes, P. M., and the Shotwell passed Cairo
by the same time piece at 2 o'clock and 1G min- t
utes, P. M. on Friday, the 20th May. '
W. S". Chapman, i
On A. Norton's Wharf Boat, Cairo.Ill.
This is to certify that I was on the landing when j
the steamers Eclipse and A. L. Shotwell arrived, '
and that the Eclipse arr'-ved at ten minutes before I
eight o'clock, and the Shotwell arrived at eleven
minutes before eight o'clock both boats timed
by same watch and to same point. (

Cherries withoutstones have lPen produced I
in X ranee, by the lollo wing method : In the Spring,
before the circulation of tho sap, a seedling cherry
tree is split from the upper extremity down to the
fork of its roots; then, by mean3 of a piece of wood
in form of a spatula, the pitch is care.ully removed
from the tree, in such a manner as to avoid any ex
coriation, or other injury; a knife is used only for
commencing the split. Afterwards, the two sec
tions aro brought together, aud tied with woollen,
care being taken to close hermetically with clay, the
whole length of the cleft. The .sap soon reunites
the separated portions of tho tree, aad, two years
afterwards, cherries are produced of the usual ap
pearance, but instead of stones, there will only be
small soft pellicks.
