The frull of a Whale and one of its Vertebres. An Indian hatchet made of chryftal : It is curious (hat ihofe uninformed wild people, hav ing very little knowledge of the aits, and being ignorant even of the exiftenceof iron and steel, fliould be able to form such hard fubftanoes in to fanciful forms as thij, and other Indian ma nufattures now in the Museum. A lignified Quince : The fpccimen thews what a icmatfcablc effect a dry warm (ituation has 011 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. Prefcntcd bv Mrs. Manfon ol Charleftown, S. C.—a tool used by the Otaheitans in making their bark cloth, by pounding the bark on this instrument ol wood, it produces the ribs which resemble threads : the perfe&ly straight and equal lines made in this extreme hard wood, by men without the ufc of iron,are curious & won derful. Alio, a rope made of grass, part of the ligg ng of a vessel of Kamfkatka. Presented by Dr. Hall, of Lewis-town, a Squib in spirits : when this filh wa< found, a number of (tones were appended to firings or ligaments that projected from the front of its head,which occasioned a conje&ure, as it is not furnifhed with fufficient fins to resist the violence of the tide and currents, that it faftened with these li gaments on whatever it found at the bottom ; so that the stones answered the purpofeof anchors and the ligaments of a glutinous sticky nature, that of cables. Some of the stones arc in the lame phial. A collc&ion of Minerals and other Foflils are now displayed in drawers covered with glass and in a mode which will feeure them from de rangement. To cach specimen are affixed refe rences to a book of descriptions. This manage ment of specimens of the Foflil kingdom, ren ders this part of the Museum very convenient and fatisfa&ory,and great attention will be paid to the fvftematical order of them, and in mak ing the neccflary essays of each : Also in giving in a concise manner, the various uses they are applied to ; thereby rendering them the more intereding to the public. A Living Elk, of 2 years old, is just receiv ed- tiy 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 Bringhurft, 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 former employers, and requeuing their future favors, as well as those of the public in general. He continues to make and repair at the fliorteft notice, all kinds of pleasure carriages, such as coaches, chariots, phaetons with and without crane necks, coachees, chaises, kitte reens, windsor fulkeys and chaiis, and harness of every description, in the neatest and newest fafhion now prevailing in the United States. And as he has a quantity of the best seasoned wood by him, and capital workmen, he has not the least doubt but he will be able to give fatisfa&ion to those whopleafe to employ him. He has for fate, several carriages almost finiihed, such as coachees, an Italian windsor chair, hung on steel springs, a light phseton for one or two horses, and a fulkey with a falling top. Carriages fold on Commission.

HENRY REES, Aminiftrator. 2av\ 3\v. January 13. Encyclopedia, JUST published, By THOMAS DOBSON, Book feller, at the Stone House, iu Second ftreet Philadelphia. VOLUME X. OF Encyclopedia; or Dictionary Ot Ans, Sciences, and Miscellaneous Literature, on a Plan entirely new ; Br WHICH The Different Sciences and Arts, are d'igejied into the form of Diftinft Treaties or Syfteins : THIS volume contains principlesof Levels, Liberty, Do&rine of Light, Lightning, Locks, Logarithms, Logic, History of Lon don, Longitude, Luther, Lvdia, Macedon, Madagascar, Magic, Magnetiftn, Malts, His tory of Man, Marriage, Mary, Maryland, Masonry, Materia Medica, Meadow, Mecha nics, with a great variety of Biographical and Miscellaneous articles, illuilrated with Twen ty two Copperplates. As a number of families are still in the country, and it is not generally known who are returned. T. Dobfon, solicits the favor of the fubferibers to call or fend for their vo lumes, that they may be supplied as early as poilible. The trnth volume of the Encyclopedia is now presented to the public ; but as it makes its appearance in an imperfect state, some ac count of the reason of that imperfe&ion should be given. On the Brh «f September last, the Publisher had the misfortune 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 ftgures, with which he was printing the tables or lo garithms, belonging to the pre feat volume, were melted down by the violence of the fire. As a supply of these could not be immediately obtained, be was under the neceflity of pul» lifhing the volume without these tables; but hopes he fhallbc able to publilh thein with the next volume which is now in conliderable for wardnefs. The Publisher embraces this opportunity of exprefling his grateful acknowledgments to the generous public, for the verylibeial pa tronage with which his undertaking has been honored; at the fame time he takes the li berty of reprefen ting to such of the fubfci ibers as are in arrears, the indif'penfible necessity of punctuality, both in taking up the volumes as early as poflible after publication, and of pay ing for them when taken. Many of the fu!>- fcribers having got only one, two, three, fee. volumes, and several volumes remain unpaid. 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 trifle to the individuals, 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 these reasons the Publisher finds himfelt under the necessity of recurring to the original terms of publication, and in future no vo lumes will be delivered but only to those wh» take and pay to the time of publication.
