Thursday Evening. Jane IT, 1832
Imebekibo Fact The Rev. J. D. Ty
ler, Principal of the Deaf Mute Department
of the, Virginia Institution, states in his last
interesting report, that our own country is
the only one in which the question whether
the children of deaf mutes are themselves
apt to be deaf has approached solution. Two
hundred educated deaf mutes assembled in
Hartford, Connecticut, Sept. 26, 1850. Of
these, 103 were married,-ome quite recent
ly. Seventy-two were parents, of 102 chil
dren,' ninety-eight of whom can hear and
apeak, Instances are given of parents both
deaf from birth, having children able to hear
and speak.- "An instance." says Mr. Tyler,
"exists in our institution, in the case of. an
instructor and his beautiful wife, both deaf
from birth,- but their two bright little boys
have, all their senses in perfection. So that
the apprehension in question,", coutinues
the principal, "is not sufficient ground for
denying to deaf mutes the chief earthly hap
piness, the "school and exercise of virtue
the state which preserves nations, and fills
cities and churches, and heaven itself,"
' The Theee Gkeat States. The Em
pire! Keystone and Buckeye New York,
Pennsylvania and Ohio are thegreat Stntes
of the American Union. None other ap
proach them in populntion,wealth, commerce,
manufactures, agriculture, or internal im
provements. '. The first named is thegreat commercial
centre ofthe continent. The second is the
chief manufacturing State in the Union ; and
the third, our own beautiful Ohio, is the gar
den of American Agriculture. To New Y.
may' be added internal improvements; to
Fourth of July. We call the attention of
the citiieoe to the communication of Amer
ious which will be found in our columns to
day. Our National Anniversary is approach
ing, 'and we notice that the citizens of other
cities and towns are preparing to celebrate
the day. Shall we let it past by with cold
indifference 1 - Forbid it, and not let the' no
ble deeds of our fathers be forgotten. ' :
j As the fourth comes on Sunday, we would
suggest that a meeting be called to make ar
rangements for a celebration either on Sat
urday or Monday. Will not Americus, or
some other citizen, fix the time and place for
a meeting; as much depends npon proper arrangements.-.

,TAe 'Riders. From the non-appearance
upon our slroets, for the last few evenings
back, we are necessarily led to' believe that
eur fair riders have thrown down the rein,
dismounted, and given up their' evening ex
cursions on horse-back. - We are sorry to
note this fact, believing as we do, that the
value of those young ladies who take . fre
quent rides in the fresh air,compaired tq sick
ly sentimentalists who can't snuff the cool
evening breezes without being "very appre
hensive of a violent cold," is 1::1000. Keep
in mind ladies, that healthful exercise in the
open air, is as conducive to your health as
health is to your happiness,and she who upon
her cheek wears the beautiful rose-tint of
health, will be sure to gain the premium. Nuf
The Piaode. A new disease more fatal
than the cholera has appeared in the West
India Islands, at New Orleans, and other pla
ces on the Mississippi. ' The Boston Medical
Journal thus alludes to it;
"It is certain, from the accounts received
here find in England, tho true plague
has been introduced into Madeira, and the
work of deuth has been reully appalling. The
question was frequently agitated will that
dreadful disease ever reach this continentl
There is reason to believe it will; the won
der is why it has not already.' Our commer
cial intercourse is extensive with various
parts of Africa and tho Asiatic shore ofthe
Mediterranean, where this groat scourge is
never dead or dying,' but simply reposing

' Mr. Editor: I desire through your paper
to Inquire, whether the good people of our
beautiful city Intend celebrating the glorious
Fourth of July, the coming Anniversary of
our National Independence! Time was
when our people laying aside their business,
and the cares of life, met together and Com
memorated the anniversary of that day upon
which the Charter of American Liberties
was proclaimed to the world; but of late years
forgetful of the Stirring scenes of our Revo
lutionary struggle, none of the good, old
fashioned demonstrations have been witnes
sed in Lancaster.' This should not be; nev
er should an American heart cease to beat
with quickoned pulsations in memory of our
country's Natal day. ' Then let us have a
good olden-time celebration. Laying aside
all business, all party differences, let us meet
in the grove as Americans and show our
children how to cherish the "spirit of '76." .
Crops akd Hons. We have made Inquiry
of every acquaintance ,from theinterior coun
ties, we have met with, and we have the
concurring testimony of all, to the fact that
tne news ot wheat and rye have never been
more promising in this State than at this sea
son; too soon, however, to forma very accu
rate estimate of the yeild of the crop. If the
Hoosier's this year don t double their last
year's production of bogs, we will miss our
guess more than one-half. Madison (la.)

Portraits ih Io.-Scarcelv a day coesbv
that iron is not applied to some new use. We
were yesterday shown a portrait of the Hon.
uaniei w ebster,manutactured throughout of
iron, and presenting the appearance of a pic
ture in frame. It is the work of Messrs, Chase
& Brother, of Boston, who intend to follow it
up with other distinguished men in the same
style. The likeness is quite striking4 and the
whole Dmy be regarded as a curiosity .'Phil
States 1b fully equal to one-third of the Uu.
nion. The whole white population of tho
fourteen Southern States only number six
and a quarter ' millions, while New York,
Pennsylvania and Ohio foot up teven and a
half millions. The entire population of the
south, free and slave only exceed th jse three
by an inconsiderable fraction. In the Pres
idential Electoral College tbey cast 45, 27
and 23 votes respectively total 85. A can
didate obtaining tho Votes of those States,
requires but 61 more votes to secure nu e
lection: and he has 28 States left, in which
to try his popularity.
With harmony among the Whigs, nnd. a
is'rong popular candidate to unite and bring
out their full vote, they can poll in the Stuto
of New York 275,000 ballots; in Pennsylva
nia 200,000; and in Ohio 175,000 in all
750,000 votes. This is more than half the
Whig vote of the 17 free States.
The New Insake Asylums. A letter from
Philadelphia, says that the Commissioners
appointed by Governor Wood (by virtue of
an act of the Legislature of last winter) to
elect sites and prepare plans for the con
struction of two additional insane Asylums
in this State, have been in that city for sev
eral days, and have adopted the plan submit
ted to Samuel Sloan, architect. The writer
says-"The plans contain many improve
ments, suggested by Dr. Kirkbridge, that
cannot fail to make them even more perfect
than our own." The buildings will each
present a front of 150 feet, the entire block
surmounted by a handsome cupola, and the
whole present a beautiful architectural ap
pearance, doing credit to the bountiful lib
erality of our State.
'Arrest on a Charge of Swindling. A
man representing himself as a secret agent
of the post office department has been arres

"official" visits to the port-masters at Car

seeing that all was right, it is alledged bor

,A Challenge. Two or three Boston ship
owners have sent a challenge to the ship
owners of Great Britain, somewhat to the
following effect: . ,
The Boston parties will produce a ship,
not less than 200, nor over 1,200 tons reg

A Rbeat Bridge. There is about to be
commenced, in the neighborhood of Dirchau,
in Prussia, a susnesion bridge ovor the Vis
tula, which will be unquestionably the lar
gest that ha ever been constructed in Eu
rope. The bridge, over which will pass the
railway Ofthe State, will be 2500 feet in
length, by 08 in breadth, and will be suppor
ted oy six pillars, at a distance of 600 feet
apart, four of which will be fixed in the riv

bridge will cost 9,700,000fr., and the Works
to be executed on the two banks will amount

Hobsb Shoes bt Machinery. The
Leed's, (Eng.,) Intelligencer thus sneaks of
a machine, for this purpose, Invented by Dr.
llobson. We had the pleasure of seeing the
machine at work a few days ago, and, with
out making pretence to technical acquain
tance with the subject, we must acknowl
edge both obvious advantage in the process,
and beauty of operation. The iron is in bars
rolled in a peculiar manner; they are cut into
suitable lengths, and the superfluous parts
cut off by machinery, and the ends of each
niece rounded. Any harsh edecs left by
the cutting machiue are ground down, and
the peices arc then put on a moving rack,
which drops them one by one at the mouth
ofthe furnace, and they are carried gradul-
ly through the name and radiating heat ot
the furnace without touching the coals. By
a new movement at the other end of the fur
nace, the peices are passed successively to
the block or die, where each is bent and
stamped by abeautiful combined action of
the machine, and the norse snoe, periectiy
shaped, draped into the trough to be cooled.
The nail holes are afterwards punched in
the cold metal, and it is not necessary a-
gain to heat the shoe, so that the hardening
effect of hammering(or stamping) Is not lost.
The advantages of the machine, in addition
to the economy of labor, (for the apparatus
for heating and bending would turn out
shoes for one hundred horses in an hour,)'
and. that the shoes are formed exactly to a
predetermined shape, which can be varied,'
but always with certainty, to particular re
quirements. Dr. Hobson insists upon the
advantages ot level tread lor me iiorse, anu
the patent shoe is made to that purpose, (ex
ceptional cases omitted.) -It is much light
er than the hand made shoe, but in no re
spect inferior in strength; and it is so formed
that the nail hesdsare protected; and by
this moons, and the support ol tne 'cups,'
the liability to cast a shoe is diminished. -
All Satisfled. Aprapot to the condition
of the disappointed, the Philadelphia Inqui
rer relates an anecdote of an unfortunate ap

fed on bean soup, by the way of a wholesome
diet, till he began to get as thin as Job's tur
kev. At length he could stand it no longer,
and poins ud to . his mastor, he declared if
be didn't- get something better than bean
soup, he'd run away and tell his parents.
"Now look you," said the "boss," "if yon'll
eat the soup and say it's good, I'll give yon
a fourponce; but if you don't you rascal, I'll

wiping his eyes with the cuff of his sleeve,
