: Whos.b Child is it ? When Sherr
man's army sloped at Smithfield, Nortli ,
Carolinaj about fifteen months since,
there was . found with it alittlt girl, five
or ' six years of age, of bright counte
nance and pleasant ways, evidently
well bred thus tar, who the soldiers
said, followed them from South Caroli
na, Georgia or' Tennesee. The corps
to which this littlov.girl. seemed: at
tached, camped near the house of a la
dy who had a little -girl of nearly the
same age,' and the . two little ones be
came so fondly, attached, that the lady
induced the soldiers to give the child
to" her, and she has been with her ever
since. . The child has. dark eyes and is
quite pretty. She. liad beeu' so long
with the army that' she could give no
intelligible account of her home. The
lady who has possesion of the little
wanderer is very much attached to her,
and treats her in every way as her own
daughter. Parties interested are retered
to the " Baptist Minister," Smithfield,
Johnston county, Xortu Carolina. The
papers of South Carolina, Georgia, and
Tenuesee are requested to copy this in
foimation. -Charleston Courier.
: The North Pole. Two French gen
tlemen recently explored the island of
Spitzenbergen in a manner never before
done. They have measured the moun
tains, mapped tin whole coast, exam
ined the vegetable products, the geolog
ical composition,"" fcc., of the island.
They found that the long day extending
over several months, during which the
sun never "sets, became intensely hot al
ter a month or two by the unceasing
heat from the sun. lu this period veg
etation springs up in great luxuriance,
and abundance. The North Pole is on
ly a matter 'of, 600 miles from the island,
and is thought by the two explorers,
as by many others, that the pole itself,
and the sea which is supposed to sur
round it, could be reached from Spitzen
bergen without any great difficulties
being encountered. A singular fact no
ticed by the explorers in connection
with this island is the enormous quan
tities of floating timber which literally
covered the waters of the bays and
creeks. A 'careful examination of the
character, condition and kind of those
floating logs would, no doubt, load to
a conclusion as to whence and how they
came, and probably suggest new theo
ries for the solution of geographical
problems connected with the Arctic
Seas. ' '.
Cold Weather on Lakes. While
we of Milwaukee have been sweltering
with heat, in common with the people
of all parts of the Union, those who nav
igate the great lakes have been shiver
ing with cold. Seamen tell us that
they hardly ever experienced colder
weather in summer than during the ytast
week. The schooner Toledo left Man
istee on the 4th of July for 3Iihvaukie.
lief" helmsman was obliged on Friday
to wear heavy mittens in order to keep
his hands from becoming ben timed with
cold, and the officer iu charge only
kept up his animal heat by walking the
deck briskly in a heavy overcoat. It is
expected to be much cooler than in shore,
but such a disparity as this is quite rare.
A Paradisk ix Pennsylvania.
Mrs. Floise Hunt, of Ileiiier's IJun,
Clinton county, Pa., writes thus:
"My home has been for six years in
a little rocky basin "shut in on every
side by the Alleghanies, without a neigh
bor, a church, or a school, seeing no hu
man face for weeks aye, even months
sometimes except those of my husband
and child. Living thus, I have come to
have in a strange,all absorbing way, all
tluit nature has thrown around me.
JEajth with its varied growth of trees
and shrubs, plants and mosses, rocks
and water, the clouds, , blue sky and
stars, everything is beautiful to me ;
even the dead leaves,1 the : old decayed
trees and bare rocks are beloved.
Think, then, how inexpressibly dear the
living trees and flowers aud moving
" I have tame trout, six yards from
the door, that leap above the water to
catch bits of meat from, my fingers.
The pheasants make their nests in sight
of the house, and sometimes the male
bird is seen drumming on an old log on
ly a few rods up the mountain side. I
have planted wild flowers round my
doors, and in summer the humming
birds go through the opeu'i house on
their visits to the flowers. Strangers
from, the world have said, .' How can
you exist iu this dreary place ?'. Their
eyes cannot see as mine ; nor can they
hear any of the pleasant voices I hear,
and so I simply tell them what they
comprehend :' 'It is iny necessity.' ;My
place, which is so lonely to others, is so
oleasant to me that I have named it Par
adise, and here I will teach my son a
love of truth, purity And beauty,"
; , ,";A JlOLAND FOR Alf .OnVEK."-r-:Mr.
Rtrymond . makes a point .against the
'radicals" in his letter, that they threat
en an ' "insurrection, of the people if
their peculiar views are. interierea witn.
ft an v" such threats nave ueen maue,
those who made them are. very silly.
But they vvere no inore silly than Mont
.rnmerv Blair, who is reported to have
said at the; Democratic meeting at Keacl"
ing yesterday :

It is the duty of the maker of an instrument to

to do so, the party for whom it is made, may
stamp it before it is used ; and if used after the
SOt h of J uly, 1804, and used without a stamp, it
cannot afterwards Jhe: effectually stamped. Any
failure upon the part of the maker of an instru
ment to appropriately stamp it, renders him lia
ble to a penalty !' two hundred dollars.

lication, petition, &c, iu which case these, as the j
original process, severally require sramps.

as original processes. -

of the Peace, Notary Public, or other officei duly
authorized to take affidavits, is' held to be a cer

When two or more persons join in the execution
of an instrument, the stamps to which this instru
ment is liable uuder the law, may be affixed and
cancelled by one of the parties.
. Li conveyances of real estate, the law provides
that the stamp affixed must answer to the value
of the estate ou Interest conveyed.

accompanying a bond or note, when sueh
bond or note has affixed thereto the stamp 01
stamps denoting the duty required, and whenever
any bond or note is secured by mortgage, but one
