Peale's Museum,
HAS Lately received a number of article?;
among which are the following : That
remarkable bird called the Cut-v*ater, or fcif
ars-bill; The Avofctte, commonly called the
Shoe-maker, because ol its bill resembling a
crooked awl—The Long-legs, commonly call
ed the Black-bet, having perhaps the longest legs,
in proportion to the fi/e of the bird, of any of
ihe feathered tribe—The Storm-finch, common
ly called mother Cary's chicken—The Sca
fwallow, and various Gulls ; besides a variety
ot Oanes, Curlews, Snipes, &c.
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. It is now about 8 years since it
was gathered ; and it was a real quince, now be
come wood, at lead in appearancc.
Pnefented by Mrs. Manfon o! Charleftown,
S. C.—a tool ufcd by the Otaheitans in making
their bark cloth, by pounding the bark on this
inftrumcnt of wood, u produces the ribs which
resemble threads : the perfectly 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 rigg
ing of a veflel of Kamfkatka.
Pielented by Dr. Hall, of Lcwis-'own, a Squib
in spirits : when this filh was found, a number
of stones were appended to firings or ligaments
that projected from the front of its head,which
occasioned a conjeftute, as it is not furnilbed
wi;h fufficicnt fins to resist the violence of the
tide and currents, th-t it fattened wi»h these li
gaments on whatever it found at the bottom ; so
that the stones anfwercd the purpofeof anchors
and the ligaments of a glutinous sticky nature,
that of cable.*. Some of the Hones are in the
lame phial.
A collection of Minerals and other Foflils-
a r e now dtfplayed in drawers covered with glass
and in a mode which will feeure thein frdm de
rangement. To each specimen are affixed rcfe-
rences to a book of cefcuptions. This manage-
ment of specimens of*the Foflil kingdom, ren
ders this part of the Museum very convenient
and fatisfa£tory,and great attention will be paid
to the fvftcmaiical order of them, and in mak-
ing the neccffary c Ofays of : Also in giving
in a concise manner, the various uses they are
applied to; thereby rendering them the more
luterefliug to the public.
A Living Elk, of 2 years old, is just receiv
ed. By the account which tnonf. Button gives
of the Elk, it appears that he was not acquaint
ed with this American animal; lie particularly
omits all notice of the curious apertures adjoin
ing the eyes of this Elk.

TAKES this opportunity of returning his
grateful thanks to his former employers,

He continues to make and repair at the

such as coaches, chariots, phaetons with and
without crane necks, coachees, chaises, kitte
reens, windsor fulkey s and chaits, and harness
of every description, in the ncateft 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 who please to employ him.
He has for fake, several carriages almost
finithed, such as coachees, an Italian windsor
chair, hung on steel springs, a light phaston for
one or two horses, and a fulkey with a falling
top.

JUST PUBLISHED,
By THOMAS DOBSON,
Booklelier, at the Stone House, in Second
ftreet Philadelphia.
VOLUME X. 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.
