land." Hundreds of people, here do
precisely the same things, and have been
doing them all their lives. There is an
old woman who carves cats, nogs, woives,
sheep, goats and elephants. She has
made these ammais ner wiroie ine long,
and has had no idea how to cut anything
else. . She has no model or drawing to
work by, but goe:; on steadily, using
gauges of different sizes, and shaping her
animals witbjwonderful ease and truth to
nature."" She learned from her mother
tow to carve tlcae sex anirtials, and her
mother had learned in like manner from
hers. She bas now; taught the art to her
granddaughter.' In th.o house next to
that of this old woman laves a fine,

The following is the dHioerafle judg

naval authority, .concerning me present
pitiable 'plight of our. navy, and occurs
In a communication addressedt to. the
late secretary of the navy and -by him
transmitted to congress.- ;
In case ef a war lietween this nation
and England, the English navjr could
batter its way into any of our harbors
and destroy them ; and any ordinary
ship in the British navy conld blockade
any of -our harbers, could keep in every
ship that was there, and keep out every
ship that was on the outside. One single
vessel of the English navy could whlp
everything we have aot. It i no exo
neration to say that the InVThle, for
Instance,' could go through our. whole
navy. Out ship might fire at her all
day, and not hurt her. "Her people
would go down to tbeir dinner quietly
while we were firing at ber. Our slips
could not run away from her, because
she makes her fourteen knots an hour on
a measured mile, and the fastest jol our
monitors only makes eight miles.J
