the subject of gililhig warehous.
es, dwellings, publit-edifiees, &c., of
cast irom is beginning to attract con
siderablo attentioi throughout the
country'. Tle first entire cast iron
Sbuildiirg constructed in this country
was.Qoreeted' about two-yea s'since in
New-York by Mr. Borgardus-, a
woohanic of the highest order-ofgen
Jug'. d' talent.- It was built for his
'own businesi, (6el' ding cast iron
-iouses,) and is' a canpfobe and beau
tiful structure- The next of import.
anct in' si, andof an- entirely oir.
jinal design, will be orested in .Bltil
nore for the Sun newspaper, which
ve hope will do credit to all the
different mechanics and laborers
. engaged in its construction, and
Irove' an orrmment to our city.
We find the following on the sub
'eot of cast iron buildings in the New.
Cast Irroin Budings1.-Public
attention has been aroused to the ne
eessity of adopting some method of
building which will ef&ctually pre
vent the spread of a conflagration
when it occvrs in the business por
tions of our city, and the lamentable
destruction of property conscquent
The Surr newspaper has recently
taken up the subject warmly, and is
advocating the passa-ge of a law,
."That no building shall hereafter be
erected except it is Fire proof."
The operation of auch a law would
appeur at first impracticable, but a
little reflection will satisfy every one
that it would not only be entirely
feasable, but would attain the end so
much to be desired, without involving
any new pridciple or burthening the
*buialer with any additional expense.
The public probably do not sufli
ciently appreciate the fact, that we
have' at hand a material destined, as
if by Providence, to be applied to
.just such a purpose; we refer to iron
-a ineterial better adapted to the
construction of houses for living,
manufacturing, or public purposes,
than either hrick, wood or stone, and
one susceptible of being worked with
more- ease, beauty and economy than
any other in use.
Theorpace of a newspaper article
is too limited to allow of a full dis
cussion upon the peculiar adaptation
of iron for the purposes alluded to,
but a few of its most obvious advant
-ages may be enumerated.
First-As regards form and shape.

Protection against lightning-a
Security against fire--In addition
tolthe iron presenting no "food for

-The severe rules which govern the
Gothic and Grecian structures in the
laying of stones, can be departed
from in every essential particular.
In connection with this last men
tioned advantage, much might be
said in regard to the adlaptation of
antiqjue fomm to the wants of our
comgrcal omuniy; ndwhether

Tle subect ought to be examined

and thle public, in these d'ays of burn

give their careful attention to a ma

great essentials of houso building,

Population of San Francisco.
The community of San Francisco
is a perfect alla podridez, although its.
principal ingredient and general char
noter is American. The Americans
are the onions and flavor that season
the whole dish Let any one place
himself in any one spot for a half an
hour, and he will see as many castes
as were over dreamed of in his philos
ophy-casts of humanity in clay by
a great master not the counterfeit pre
sentment in plaster-of-paris, wrought
by human hands. And yet there is
no clashing no interference, TO nation
al, sectional feelings engendered, and
a better regulated community never
existed. Here you will find the Ncw
York merchant, Southern planter,
the Western farner and the Eastern
tra(ler-the slave-holder and the hot,
headed abolitionist. Here is the vol
atile, enthusiastic, sanguine French
man. Then conies the fiery, hot-bloo
ded Italian, who lowers his brows, and
growls out a deep 'diarolo' through
his teeth, if one but jogs his elbow.
In his wake comes the stolid German,
with his little blue cap and enormous
vizor, who seems, while he inhales
his tobacco smoke from the bowl of
his Dutch pipe, to exist but in a dre
am; but in his eyes you can see his
faivorite expression, 'Mcin Gott, what
a countries!' Next we see the English
man-who, let him live under Ameri
can institutions till lie grows grey
let him associate, with Americans all
his life-never loses his nationality.

lie carries it in his hat, it is imprinted
upon his coat, it is perceptible in his
vest, it it evident in his trousers; and
unquestioiable in his gaiters and
shoes. Then conies the child of Erin;
poor, lowntrodden, betrayed Ireland.
His looks are brighter now, but sad
dening thoughts will cast a shade
over his broiw when lie thinks of the
green sod that grows over the graves
of his ancestors. When lie conjures
up the history of her long, long years
of poverty and oppression, when he
sees the thousands upon thousands of
his countrymen starving and dving
like dogs upon the wayside, the~ big
tear glistens in his eye: aiid yet he
yearns for home, and determines
when lie has obtained wealth to fly
again to his own, his native land.
The harpe is music to his eair, the
shamrock the oasis in the desert and
lie echoes the wvords of the song:
"Oh, steeoy hark to I-:riun's Isito

A Etg1band Aneodote J
By SIR WALTMR SCOTT. I
The story is an old but not ancient v
one, the actor and sufferer was not a r
very aged man, when I heard the I
anecdote in my early youth. Dun- t
can, for so Ishall call him, bad been
engaged in the affair of 1746, with e
othera of his clan; and was supposed:
by many to have been an accomplice ]
if not the principal actor, in a cer
tain tragical affair, which made much
noise a good many years after the
rebellion. I am content with indica
ting this, in order to give some idea
of the man's character, which was
bold, fierce, and enterprising. Tra
ces of this natural disposition still re
mained on Duncan's very good fea.
tures, and in his keen grey eye. But
the limbs, like those of the aged bor
derer in a former tale, had becomo
unable to serve the purpose and obey
the diclates of his inclination. On
the one side of his body lie retained
the proportions and firmness of an
active mountaineer; on the other, lie
was a disabled cripple, scarce able to
limp along the streets. The cause
which reduced him to this state of in
firmity was singular.
Twenty years or more before I
kn4* Duncan, lie assisted his brothers
in framing a large grazing in the
Highlands, comprehending an ex
tensive range of mountain and forest
land, morass, lake and precipice. It
chanced that a sheep or goat was
missing from the flock, and Duncan,
not satisfied with despatching his
sliepards in one direction, went him
self in quest of the fugitive in another.
In the course of his researches, he
was induced to ascend a small and
narrow path, leading to the top of a
high precipice. Dangerous as it was
at first, the road became doubly so
as lie advanced. It was not much
more than two feet broad, so ragged
and dlifficult, and, at the same time
so terrible, that it would have been
impracticable to any but the light
step anti steady brain of a Ilighland
er. The precipice on the right rose
like a wall, and on the left, sunk to a
depth which it was giddy to look
down upon; but Duncan passed cheer
fully on, now whistling the gathering
of his clan, now taking heed to his
footsteps when the difficulties of the
path peculiarly required caution.
In this manner lie had more than
half ascended the precipice, when in
midway, and it might almost 1e said,
in middle air, lie encountered a buck
of the red deer sPecies, coming down
the cliff by the same path in an oppo
site direction. If Duncan had had a
gun no rencontre could have been
more agreeable; but as he had not
this advantage over the denizen of the
wilderness, the meeting was in the
hg estderee uinwelcome. Neither
party hind the power of retreating,
for the stag had not room to turn
himself in the narrow path; and if
Duncan hlad turned his back to go
down, lie knew enough of the crea
ture's habits to be certain that lie
would rush upon him while engaged
in the difficulties of the retreat. They
stood perfectly still and looked at
each other in mutual embarrassmenit
~for some space.
IAt length the deer, which was of
the largest size began' to lower his
formidable antleis, as they do when
they are brought to hay, and are pe
parmng to rush upon hound aind hunts
mnii. Duncan sawv the danger of a
ennilict in which he must pr'obably
come by thre worst, and~ as a last re
source, str'etchied himself on the lit
tle ledge of rock which lie occupied,
and thius awaited the resolution which
the deer should take, not making the
least motion for fear of alarming the
wildl and( susp)icious animal. They'
remained in this posture for three
or four hours, in the midst of a rock
Iwhich would have suited the pencil of'
Salv'ator, and which afforded barely
room enough for the man arid stag,
opposed to each other in this extra
A t length the buck semed to take
the resolution of passing over the ob
stacle which lay in his piath, amid with
this pnrpose appr'oached towards
Duncan very slowly and with caur
tioni. When he camne to the 1Ihghl
lander, lie stooped.( his head down as
if to examine him more closely, whien
the devil. or the untaimeable love of
sport peculiar' to his countr'y, began
to ovei'eo:nc Duncan's fears. See'
ing the animal proceed so gently, lie
totally forgot not only the danrgers
oif his position, but the implicit com-~
Ipact which certainly might have
beein iniferred from the circumstanoes
of' thre situation. With onec hand
D unmcanr seized thie deei-'s horn, wit h
thre other lhe drew his diirk. liut in
thei same instant the buck bounided
over- the precipie, camrry'ing the
IIliglilanider alonig with him. They
went tus down upwards (of a hun
di'ed feet, and weire found the next
muoirng on the spot where they fell.
F'ortune, who (does not always re
tributive justice in her dispensation,
ordered that the deer shoul fall1 un
dermost, and be killed, on the apot,
while Duncan escaped with life, but
with the fracture of a leg, an arm,
and three ribs. In this state ho was
found lying on ihn carnas of th
