The scull »»f a Whale and one of its Vertebres. An Indian hatchet made of chryftal : It is curious that those uninformed wild people, hav ing very little knowledge of the arts, and being ignorant even of the exigence of iron and flee I, should be able to form such hard fubftanees in to fanciful farms as this, and other Indian ma nufa&ures now in the Museum. A hgnified Quince : The specimen (hews what a remaikable effefl a dry warm situation has on fruit. It is now about 8 years since it was gathered ; and it was a real quince, now be come wood, at least in appearance. Presented by Mrs. Manfon of Charleftown, S. C.—a tool used by the o:aheitans in making their bark cloth, by pounding the bark on this inrtrumcnt of wood, it produces the ribs which resemble threads : the perfcdly straight and equal lines made in this extreme hard wood, by men without the use of iron,are curious & won derful. Alio, a rope made of grass part of the tige inp of a vessel of Kamlkatka. Prelcntcd by Dr. Hall, of LewU-town, a Squi'n in spirits : when was lound, a number ot Hones were appendid lo firings or ligaments that projected from the front of ils head,which occasioned a conjrfture, at it i> not furnifhed wMh fufficient hns to refill the violence of the tide and currents, that it fattened wirh these li gaments on whatever it found at the bottom ; so that the stones anfwercd the purpofeof anchors and the ligaments of a gluiinous sticky nature, that of cablet.

A Living FJk, of 2 years old, is just receiv ed. By the account which monf. Buffon gives of the Elk, it appears that he was not acquaint ed with this American animal; he particularly omits all notice of the curious apertures adjoin ing the eyes of this Elk. George Bringhurfl, COACH-MAKER, In Mulberry (Arch) between Fourth and Fifth Streets, adjoining the Episcopal burying ground, TAKES this opportunity of returning his grateful thanks to his forme/employers, and requesting their future favors, as well as those of the public in general. He continues to make and repair at the shortest notice, all kinds of pleasure carriages, such as coaches chariots, phaetons with and without crane necks, coachees, chaises, kitte reens, wind for fulkeys and chaiis, and harness of every description, in the neatest and newest fafliion now prevailing in the United States. And as he has a quantity of the best seasoned wood by him, ard capital workmen, he has not the least doubt but he will be able to give farisfaftion to those whopleafe to employ him. He has for fa>e, several carriages alinoft finiftied, such as coachees, an Italian windsor chair, hung on steel springs, a light phaeton for one or two horses, and a fulkey with a falling top.

OF Encyclopedia; or Dictionary Of Arts, Sciences, and MifceUaneous Literature, on a Plan entirely new ; Br WHICH The Different Sciences and Art*, are dig (fled into the form of Diftinft Treaties or Syfcems : I ""HIS volume contains principles of Levels, Liberty, Doctrine of Lighr, Lightning, Locks, Logarithms, Logic, Hiftorv of Lon don, Longitude. Luther, Lydia, Macedon, Madagascar, Magic, Magnetism, Malts, His tory of Man, Marriage, Mary, Maryland, Masonry, Materia Medica, Meadow, Mecha nics, with a great variety of Biographical and MifceUaneous articles, illultrated with Twen ty two Copperplates. As a number of families are still »n the country, and it is not generally known who arereturned. T. Dobfon, solicits the favor of the fubfcr.bers to call or fend for their vo lumes, that they may be supplied as early as poilible. The tenth volume of the Encyclopedia is now presented to the public ; but as it makes its appearance in an impcrfeft state, ft-me ac count of the reason of that imperfection (houid be given. On the Bth of September last, the Publisher had the misfoi tune of having his Printing-Office burnt down by a fire which broke out in the neighbourhood, and a great quantity of his printing materials destroyed, and among other articles, the figuies, with which he was printing the tables or lo garithms, belonging to the present volume, were melted down by the violence of the fire. As a supply of these could not be immediately obtained, he was under the neceflity of pub lifhing the volume without these tables; but hopes he shall be able to publish them with the next volume which is now in considerable for- wardnefs. The Publisher embraces this opportunity of expressing his grateful acknowledgments to the generous public, for the very liberal pa tronage with which his undertaking has been honored; at the fame time he takes the li berty of representing to such of the fubferibers as are in arrears, the indifpenfible neceflity of punctuality, both in taking up the volumes ac early as poflible after publication, and of pay ing for them when taken. Many of the fub feribers having got only one, two, three, &c. volumes, and several volumes remain i*ni» aid. Thus the work hangs in all its different stages from the commencement; and though the im portance of a few dollars may be but a trifie to the itpiividuals, yet the accumulation of these trifles unpaid lays the Publisher under very serious embarraflment, and deprives him of the use of many Thousands of Dollars which at this time would be of very eflential service. For tbefe reasons the PublHher finds himfelf under the neceflity of recurring to the original terms of publication, and in future no vo lumes will be delivered but only to thole who take and pay to the time of publication.
