Fate of an American Gentle
Messrs. Bottes. & Co —Since my
return to America, from the Desert 0 /
Zaara, in Alni-.i which was on ihr
SOtli May, A. 1), IS IT, at Uoston, !
Iia^e exauiincil in vain, miMry inihl.e
p.ijHTs to find some mention of the
, 11 " ancho'y ihiaih of an America 1
g t!em; n. who was like mysi Jfa slave
to the Arabs. I learned his fate from
John iit own, of New York, who was
ransomed ntMogatiore, near the time
I was, and who was |iasBi-ngei- with
me to Huston. He said lie saw Inn
dir, in IWemhov lath, upon liie De
sert. and buried him with bis own
hands. Iitown did lint know his name:
but u few f.u ts which i learned from
him may lead to a discovery. Drown
mo that tins gentleman was a
passenger in a vessel from Baltimore
to Uuet.os Ayres, railed tin Romp —
that lie was commissioned for tlie ar.
my of the. Patriots in South America
—that lie had been a major in tin- IJ.
States, late army, and was said to hr
a relative of the late Vice President
of the United Stales, and a citizen of
the sou I hero states. He left (he Romp,
and went aboard a Prize bound ti
Buenos Ayres ; Smith, prizemastrr ;
who was drowned, as the vessel went
a shore on the western coast of Africa
in about, lot. ladegressN. This gen
tîenun was enslaved with Brown, \
tiled as mcntioind. Thi* staieinrn'
may he of service, as it may lead to
discovery ot his name, and inform
his stillering friends of his fate.
Syllogism .—In answer to a quei-j
in ilio European Maaag-ine, how
» nothing' can he a substantive, a wri
ter remarks : ' I shall frame my an
swer by proving that nothing is some
thing, and consequently that nothing,
in grammar, has a legitimate claim to
the appellation of substantive. What
is a word l A "word is something.
Nothing is a word—therefore nothing
is something.'
Irish Humour.
One of our fellow citizens, for the
purpose ot arresting attention, caused
his sign to he set upside down. On
AI outlay last, while the rain wasnour
ing down with great violence, a Son
of Hibernia was discovered, directly
opposite, standing with great gravity
upon his head, and fixing his eyes
steadfastly upon the sign. On an en
quiry being made of this inverted
gentleman, why lie stood in so singu
lar an attitude—he answered—I ana
