Nor. 4 1 PROSPECTUS OF THE INVESTIGATOR This Journal will be devoted i0 the subjects of Religion Morality, Science, &c. Religious sub jects will be treated in a temperate but fearless man ner, and the tenets of the various sects as occa sion may require, will be examined with candor and impartiality. No personalities calculated to displease, will ever be admitted. education and Temperance will be advocated. Party Politics will not bo touched upon ; but dis passionate arguments on general and abstract ques tions may occasionally appear; and Political ques tions forming a connection with Religion (such as the union ot Church and State, kc.) will be freelv discussed. J As to scientific subjects, preference will be ex tended to those of a practical and useful charac ter. The Er Cetera will embrace a variety of topics of general information, el cctera. The articles will, chiefly, be original. When a selection can be made with decided advantage it will bj done. The subjects will be varied ai much as possible, ta suit the various- tastes of the com munity. 1 he first number may be considered as a speci men, though containing less variety, it is believed, than the succeeding ones will contain. It is intended to be monthly, and of 32 pages. I t has to make its way into the world without a father's name to help it, as many a child has been obliged to do before it; and, if it only receives that encouragement which they wfio first help them selves usually receive from the. American public it will not despair of success. The terms are: 12 1-2 cents each number; $1 50 for the year in advance. Those wishing to receive the work regularly, can do so by calling at the Periodical agencies of Whitaker &. Co., Taylor & Co., penn. Avenue ? Kennedy's Bookstore, F street, in Washington; Clement'3 agency, Georgetown ; Bell & Entwistle, Alexandria; Shurtz & Taylor's, Baltimore; and at the principal Periodical agencies in Philadel phia, New York and Boston. . R would be a great convenience to the Pub-, lisher to have the names of subscribers deposited at either of the above places, so that the work can be sent regularly. CONGRESSIONAL INTELLIGENCER. The proprietors of the National Intelligen cer, in order to meet the wishes of those whose circumstances or inclination do not allow them to subscribe even to a weekly Washington paper during the whole year, have determined to is sue during each session of Congress, a weekly sheet styled " The Congressional Intelligen ces," to be devoted exclusively to the publication, as far as its limits will permit, of the Proceedings of both Houses of Congress, and Official Reports and Documents connected therewith, including a compUlt official copy cf all AcUt passed by Congress du ring the session. To bring the price within the means of every man who can read, the charge for this paper will be for the first session of eacn Congress One Dol lar, and for the second session of each Contrreas half a Dollar. & The price of the Congressional Intelligen cer, to be issued on each Wednesday during the approaching Session of Congress, will therefore be One Dollar paid in advance. To enlarge upon the value, to those who take no newspaper from Washington, of this publica tion, containing an impartial but necessarily abbre viated account of the Proceedings in Congress, In cluding an authentic official copy of all the laws passed during the session, would be needless. The man who takes no such paper ought to take one, if he does not prefer remaining ignorant of what inost nearly concerns his own destiny, and that of his family and of his posterity forever. ?tjr*VVhen six copies are ordered and paid for by any one person, a deduction of one-sixth will be made from the price, that is to say, a remittance of Five Dollars wil command six copies of the Congressional Intelligencer for the next Session. A remittance of Ten Dollars will secure thirteen copies; and for Fifteen Dollars remitted from any one person or place twenty copies will be for warded. rCpPayment in advancc in all eases is indis- ! pensable.

I, o??be. authority of Mr. Shepherd. 4bc 'accomplished conservator of the Botanical Gar dens at Liverpool, respecting the introduction of that flowery shrub, the Fuachia, into the green green-houses of Europe : Old Mr. Lee, a well known nurseryman and florist, at Greenwich, near London, about fifty years ago, was one day showing his variegated treasures to a person, who suddenly turned* and said, " Well, you have not in your whole oo - Ibction so pretty a flower as one 1 aaw to day in a window at Wapping." " Indeed, and what was this phoenix like?" " Why the plant was beautiful, and the ll iw ers hung down like tassels from the droopin r branches; their color was the deepest crimson0, n d in tho centre a fold of nch purple." Particular inquiries were made as to the exnet whereabout*, and Mr. Lee posted off to the place, where he discovered the ofject of his pursuit and pronounced it a netc vlant. He saw and admired. Entering the humbli; dwelling, lie said, "My good woman, this is a nice plant of Jouw? I should like to buy it." " Ah, sir, I coiild'nt sell it fir no monpy ; it was brought to tr.o from foreign parls by my litis band, who has none away again, and 1 must keep it for his 8ake." " But I must hare i' " " No, sir. I can't Sjwirp it." " Here," emplying his pockets; "here is gold, silver and copper," (his stock amounting to more than night guineas ) " Well; a day, this is a power of money." " Tis yours, and the plant is mine, my good woman. I'll give you one of the first young ones I rear, to keep for your husband'a sake; 1 will indeed." The bargain was struck, a ccach called,.in which old Mr. Lee and his apparency dearly I purchased flower were deposited. On returning I home, his first w(,rk was to strip off atid destroy | every blossom and bud ; the plant was divided ! into small cuttings, which were forcfd into hark j beds and hot lieds, and again sub-divided. Evo j ry effort was employed to multiply the plant.? Mr. I ,ee became the delightful possess >r of threo | hundred fuschias, all giving promise of ftnnbloa | s ins. The two which first expanded were I placed in his window. A lady came in. " Why Mr. Lee, my dear Mr. Lee, where I did you get this charming flower?" ' " 'Tis a new tiling, uiy lady?pretty, is it not ?" " Pretty ! 'iia lovely ; its price 1" " A guinea, your ladyship;" and one of the two plan's that i vening stood in beauty on her ladyship's table in her boudoir. " My dear Charlotte, where did you get that elegant flower?" " Ol), 'lis a new thin?r; I saw it at old Mr. Lee's?pretty, is it not?" " Pretty ! 'lis beautiful; what did it cost?" " Only a guinea, and there was another left." The visiter's horses trotted off to the suburb, and a third beauteous plant graced the spot from whence the first had been taken. The setxr.d guinea was paid, and the fusehia adorned Knottier drawing room of fashion. This scene was re pealed as new calls were made, by persons nt iracted by tho beau y of the plant. Two plants, graceful and bursting into flower, were constant-' <?, *? wmo ?!*>*. H? gladdened tl o faithful sailor's wife with the promised flower and bfcfbre the wwnn ctosad, naarly threo him-' d?d guineas jingled in his pur*, th# produce of the single shrub from the window of Waopine, as a reword of old Mr. Lee's taste, skilL and ft. cttton.
