The frull of a Whale 2nd 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 ol the existence of iron and steel, (hould be able to form such hard substances in to fanciful forms as this, and other Indian ma nuta&ures now in the Mufeuro. The fpccimen shews A lignified Quince what a remarkable effe6t a dry warm situation has on fruit.

OF Encyclopedia; or Dictionary Of Arts, Sciences, and Miscellaneous Literature, on a Plan entirely new ; Br WHICH The Different Sciences and Arts, are digcfled into the form of Diftinft Treaties or Systems : THIS volume contains principles of Levels, Liberty, Do&rine of Light, Lightning, Locks, Logarithms, Logic, Hiilory of Lon don, Longitude. Luther, Lydia, Madagascar, Magic, Magnetism, Malts, His tory of Man, Marriage, Mary, Maryland, Masonry, Materia Medica, Meadow, Mecha nics, with a great variety of Biographical and Miscellaneous articles, illultrated with Twen ty two Copperplates. As a number ol families are (till in the country, and it is not generally known who arereturned. T. Dobton, solicits the favor of the fubfenbers to call px feud for their vo lumes, that they may be supplied as early as poißble. The tenth volume of the Encyclopedia is now presented to the public ; but as it makes its appcarance in an impcrfeft ft ate, some ac count of the reason of that imperfection ftiould be given. On the Bth of 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 fiquies, with which he was printing the tables of lo garithms, belonging to the preterit 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 pub li filing tlie volume without thele tablks; bat hopes he (hall be able to publifb them with the next volume which is now in confideraMe for- wardnefs. The Publisher embraces this opportunity of his grateful acknowledgments to the generous public, for the very libei al pa tronage with which his undertaking has been honored; at the fame time he takes the li berty of reprelenting to such of the fubferibers as are in arrears, the indifpenfible necessity of punctuality, both in taking up ihe volumes as early as possible after publication, and of pay ing for them when taken. Many of the fuh fcribers having got only one, two, three, • 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 essential service. For these reasons the Publisher finds himfelt under the neceflity of recurring to the original terms of publication, and in future no vo lumes will be delivered but only to those who take and pay to the time o4*publication.
