Musical Sewing Machine.
There is now on exhibition in the Crystal Palace, New York, anew article of fuaniture, in which sewing machines are combined with a melodoon. The apparatus has the appear ance, externally, of a small parlor side-board or escritoir. You lift the front and find a nandsome set of piano keys. Close it, and turn back a hood on the top, and you have a complete sewing machine, conveniently arranged; concealed below, within side doors, are two pedals, one for the music, the other for the sewing machine. When the lady be comes tired of playing at sewing, she mav change her foot to the other pedal, open the melodeon, part, and discourse sweet music. The price of these contrivances is *2OO. They form very ornamental articles of furni ture. It is a New Orleans invention, and is now for the first time on exhibition. Excess of Passengers. —A .citizenof this county who returned on the Gviicn Age, in forms us that the utmost annoyance was caused during the passage in consequence of the crowded state of the steamer. The list is given as a trifle over 1000, but ho assures ns that over 1200 persons were on board. The steamer George Lair, on the other side, is allowed by law to carry 8-11) passengers. The count was made and was found to amount to 1253. Action has already been taken by the Collector of the Port concern ing this not only illegal but inhuman prac tice, and it is to bo hoped that it will be fol lowed up. jVcrada Democrat. There is now in Georgia between fifty and sixty cotton factories, conducted in the most skilful and successful manner, with all the appliances in the way of machinery that can be found in the same kind of establishments in New England. There is iron enough in the blood of one man to make a chain of sufficient strength to bind him. The quantity of brass in his face is not so readily ascertained. A .Son of Daniel Boone. — Col. Nathan Boone, tlte oldest and the onlv surviving son of that old pioneer of Kentucky, Daniel Boone, is still living in Green countv, Mo. He is 76 years of ago. Gough, the great t< iit eran :e lecturer, now hard at work in Now Vork, during the two years he was in England, he ma le about 1000 addresses, traveled 19,837 miles, wrote 3,500 letters, and -Dpt in 30') different beds. Newspapers in the Wc.ui', — The follow ing is supposed to be the number of news papers in the world: 10 in Austria; 14 in Africa: 21 in Spain; 20 in Portugal; 30 in Asia; 65 in Belgium; 85 in Denmark; 50 in Russia and Poland; 350 in other Germanic States; 500 in Great Britain and Ireland; and 2,0( "i in the Uni id States, or nearly twice as many as in all other nations. With a less population we ha\ o four times as many newspapers as Great Britain, ‘‘the most en lightened nation on the globe.” An Item for E £-(> v nob F ki.e. — A late number of the Ohio Statesman, in giving an account of a Know-Nothing meeting in Chillicothe sa; ■; On Saturday week Chase, Wade, and other Fusion Mump* rs were at 1 : e to address the people. During the meeting, which by the way was a verv small affair, a procession of ticntg-r-, e mgro'S entered the meeting, and were w elcomed by cheers. The great Union-saver will, by the bye, be crying “save me from my friends.” If lie should ever be ■ lecte i to the Senate, “grape vines, will command an enormous price in the market, as since Know-Ncthingism has been running, John P. Hales have grown thicker than blackberries in September. Experiment with a Burning Diamond.— An interesting experiment was lately per formed by Protc-ssor I ana .a". A diamond held by a little platium damp and ignited to whiteness in the oxy-hydrogen flame, was plunged, while incandescent, into a jar of oxygen. It was speedily dissipated into gas, which was proved to be carbonic acid. Inflamatory KiiEu.MATifeM.—A gentleman wishes us to publish the following for the relief ot suffering humanity, lie savs he lias known a number of cures made by it, and all of them in a short time: Half an ounce of pulverized saltpeter put into half a Y'int of sweet oil. Bathe the parts affected, and a sound cure will speedily follow. “Cloth of Gold.” — A very important dis covery has just been made by a Mr. Petit, of Lyons, ot a means of impregnating silk by a chemical process with gold, silver, brass or iron, so that it can be woven with perfect flexibility, and thus form, as it were, stifffs of these metals. The invention has been secured by patent, and will be worked by a company ot capitalists. Permission has been given to place a specimen in the Universal Exhibition. It is said that the price of this new article will not be high. Pawnuroriso. —The business of profes sional pawnbroking was first established in the year 1.513, and under the sanction of Leo A, and intended to be a benevolent institu tion, with the object of loaning money to necessitous people at a moderate rate of in terest, in sums not exceeding thirty Homan scudi, or about twenty-five dollars. The money was loaned for a term of eighteen months, at the expiration of which time the pledges were sold and the surplus money, after paying the debt incurred, was returned to the owners. From Italy, the mont di Pkla' spread into other countries, being established as a government institution, un der the control of the government. In this manner the institution now exists in France. Alla. To Prevent Fruit Trees from Splitting. For preventing forked trees from splitting under tneir weight of fruit, Isaac Lewis, of Hopkinsville, Kentucky, has given us his plim. “My plan,” he writes, “which I have followed for thirty years, is this; when I find a forked tree that is likely to split, I look for a small limb on each fork, and clean them of leaves and Internal branches for most of their length. I then carefully bring them together and wind them round each other, from one main branch to the other. In twelve months they will have united, and in two years the ends can be cut off. The brace will grow as fast as any other part of the tree, and is a perfect security from splitting. I have them now of all sizes, and I scarcely ever know one fail to grow AIISCELLANKC )US.

I told him not to fear to tell me the whole truth, for 1 should rath er know the worst at once, than to live in sus pense. 1 had lost about thirty pounds of flesh, and knew that hr at least could not euro me, and as I was then going on. death must soon count me as one of its victims. This physician then told me that my case was incurable;* that I had better not take any more medicines, lie said I was in a doc!it " jhich was fust tending to pulmonary con sumption. 1 then despaired of obbiining any relief, and saw that unless something was done to mitigate the complaint that I should he numbered with the dead, or w hat is worse, he a raving maniac.

When I called upon you a few weeks since. 1 had but lit tie hope of being so speedily recovered. I cannot depict the suffering of mind which I endured, whilst my bodily infirmities made me a burthen to my friends. The confusion in my brain, timid ity, the nervousness when 1 would get the least excited or alarmed, the love of solitude, the want of appetite and weakness generally, but particu larly of my limbs, have all disappeared, us have the nocturnal i missions, and the n mains of at old disease that rny tolly brought on me. For all this ! (eel truly thankful, for to your rjcdicines and advice I am indebted for the restoration of my health, ll you think any one would be benefitted by putting this letter in the papers, you are at liberty lo do so.
