Cast Iron Buhains,
The subject of gtxCfd ig warehous
es, dwellings, publis edifces, &c., of
cast iron. is begnning to attract con
siderable- attention, throughout the
country. The first entive cast iron
I building constructed in this country
was .eretted' about two-yeats'since in
New-York by Mr. Borgardusw a
mechanic of the highest orderofgen
iislwatd talent.- It was built for his
own businest, (bulifding cast iron
houses,) and is a complfe' and! benu
tiful structure*- The next of import
aerc in- size, and-of an. entirely orig
inal design, will be ereeted iv .Balti
more for the Sun nerwspaper, which
we hope will do credit to all the
different mechanies and laborers
engaged in its construction, and
prova an ortrament to our city.
We find the following on the sub.
ject of cast iron buildings in the New
Cast Irron Bulldings.-Public
attention has been aroused to the ne
ebssity of adopting sonic method of
buildng which wfil effectually pre
tent the spread of a conflagration
when it occvrs in the business por
t-ions of our city, and the lamentable
destruction of property consequent
The- Surr newspaper has recently
taken up the subject warmly, and is
advocating the passage of a law,
-"That no building shall hereafter be
erected except it is Fire proof."
The operation of such a law would
appeur at first impracticable, but a
little reflection will satisfy every one
that it would not only be entirely
foasable, but would attain the end so
much to be desired, without involving
any new pridciple or burthening the
*builder with any additional expense.
The public probably do not sufli
ciently appreciate the fact, that we
have- at hand a material destined, as
if 6y Providence, to be applied to
just such a purpose; we refer to iron
--a meterial better adapted to the
construction of houses for living,
manufacturing, or public purpses,
than either brick, wood or stone, and
one susceptible of being worked with
more ease, beauty and economy than
any other in use.
Thetpace 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.

tolThe iron presenting no "food for

the parts of an iron building, it can

In connection with this last men

The subject ought to be: examined
into and treated by men of science;
and the public, in these d'ays of burn
ing down and building up, should
give their carefui attention to a ma
terial which carries with it the three
great essentials of house building.

A BMand Anecdote.
BY SIR WALTER SCOTT.
The story is an old but not ancient
one; the actor and sufferer was not a
very aged man, when I heard the
anecdote in my early youth. Dun
can, for so Ishall call him, bad been
engaged in the affair of 1746, with
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 become
unable to serve the purpose and obey
the dictates of his inclination. On
the one side of his body he retained
the proportions and firmness of an
I active mountaineer; on the other, he
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
kne Duncan, he assisted his brothers
in framing a large grazing in the
Il-iglands, 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
shepards 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 difficult, and, at the same time
so terrible, that it would have been
impracticable to any but the light
step and steady brain of a Highland
er. The precipize on the right rose
like a wall, and on the left, sunk to a
depth which it was giddy to look
(ovn 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 he had more than
half ascended the precipice, when in
midway, and it might almost be said,
r in middle'air, he encountered a buck
of the red der'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 ho had not
-this advantage over the denizen of the
wilderness, the meeting was in the
I highest degree unwelcome. Neither
party had the power of retreating,
for the stag had not room to turn
himself ini the narrow path; and if
,1Duncan had turned his back to go
'(down, lie knew enough of the ca
ture's habits to be certain that he
l would rush upon him while engaged
,in the difficulties of the retreat. TIhey
stood perfectly still and looked at
each other in mutual embarrassment
for some space.
At length the deer, which was of
the largest size began' to lower his
formidable antleis, as they do when
they arec brought to hay, and arc pre

- encniet in which he must prob)lably
come by the worst, and as a last re
source, stretchied himself on the lit
tle ledge of rock which he ocupied,
andl thus awaited the resolution which
the deer should take, niot making the
least motion for fear of alarming the
wild and suspiciouis animal. They
remained in this posture fbr three
or four hiours, in the midlst of a rock
