This is not a new work, but, though small, one of decided
interest and popularity.
Zy Tin1 Indiana University, at the late meeting of ti e
Board ?f Trustees at Bloomington, established a Law De?
partment, and elected Gen. T. A. Howard Professor.
KJ" It is reported from Washington that Col. Worth will
succeed to the office of Inspector General of ihr, lT. S. Army,
about to be vncnted by the appointment of Gen. Wool to the
vacant Major Generalship. Such an appointment, we be?
lieve, would givo general satisfaction.
Kj* There really seems to bo some truth in the story that
a rough Diamond has bem found near the Wabash River. In?
diana. We have bevn incredulous.
Ef* A shark nine feet long was caught in a seine at Savan
Rock, on the West Haven shore, Conn, on Friday afternoon
KT" We learn that the receipts of the Philadelphia and
Baltimore Railroad for July, 1841, amounted to $G3,H47 14.
This is one of tho most successful and best conducted im?
provements of the kind in the country.
Americas Institvte?Next Fair.?In justice to this Association,
it becomes not less a duty to itself then to the public to repeal in sub?
stance somo circumstances heretofore officially made known, but
which it is feared arc overlooked. Charge* wore confidentially made
which, until investigated, left impressions prejudicial to its character,
snd calculated to impair its usefulness. An investigation soon dis?
pelled these delusions, snd the falsehoods fell lo the ground.
None but those who take an artivo part in the duties, connected
?Ith this Society can be competent to form a correct opinion of tic
arduous nature of those numerous duties. Not only do they require
a great sacrifice of time, attended with much irksome responsibility,
tut they involve prvumary considerations not always the most wel?
Many gentlemeu of the highest rospecuhility, some of them wilh
their families, are visiters to the Annual Fair, und struugers from all
parts of the I'nioa among the number. The most respectful sad
courteous attention is called for under such circumstances, aud the
officers and manager* are under the necessity of devoting the most
'??iduous uttentiou to constantly multiplyirg deinem'*, aud tn give
answers to the numberless inquiries thai are made. They must also
listen to numerous complaints continually springing up among keen
competitors in a eoucern so complicated, often creating embarrass?
ments and cngeuderiog unpleasant feclirgs.
It is deemed proper here to remark that, notwithstanding the heavy
lav which in divers ways dovolve? upou thr Institute genernlly, and
on the managers aud officers particularly, the whole duties, with a
"ingle exception, are performed gratuitously ; and w hen it is taken
itito view that consequences of unmea-urable imporlaacc are the off*
?priog of this great scheme of giving aid lo tho Agriculture, Arts an.!
Mtaulactun-s of our country, it will at once be perceived that sinister
nouvf- have no share in impcll-ag the ageuts to the performance of
th?ir duty.
Wo wish it to bo borne m mind that there u but one salaried officer
helongmg to the Institute. The superintending agent receives no
Bore than a moderate c erkhirc , and even much of this is upended
lu the performance oi duties incidental to his station. It i- even be?
lieved that no executive magistrate of ?uy State in tho Cnion per?
form, as much labor, or in subject le so much responsibility, as falls
to the lot of thu iudividual ; nor is it thought that his compensation
is by any means adequate to hi* services. None but a man of cnlight
earst miad and ripe experience would be qualified to fill the place
wilh credii and usefulness.
It may not be improper to slate that the Secretary of the Institute
receives oue hundred dollars per annum. This sum is not only too
small to be named as a salary, but it is little more than sufficient to
cover certain expenses iacidenl to the office; the duties of which are
frequently burdensome, aud occupy much more time than many per?
sons would be willing to devote to it without a fair compensation.
There is one important view connected with this subject which
ought not to bo lost sight of. No other institution in the city bu? the
effect of bringing together such a throng of visjters from abroad, for
sone other can furnish so rich and m.gnihcent a display of useful and
ornamental articles, calculated lo captivate the eye of the beholder,
and to carry borne to hit breast a deep and solvmii conviction that the
true source of our national strergth, independence aud riches is found
at our native energies, ingenuity snd .kill Who then,can withhold
from it an acknowledgement of its boundless utility ? Who will re?
fuse a trifling contribution for the gratification of witnessing an exhi
Uon of unrivaled splendor, demonstrating the important fact that we
po????? wiiaiu onrselves all tho element* rf greatness* Moderate in?
ducements alone are required to produce such a concentration of
??Usi and such force of action as will speedily raiie our ?ountry to
""highest pinnacle of renown. ^A FRIEND OF THE ARTS.

ff f desire yon to anderatand the true pri
Americans in Inkia.?The Mobile Journal publishes
die following oxtract from a letter from a native of on? of
the Cotton-growing State,, who is now in India, tinder a
contract with the Government, or a Company who are
making an attempt to improve the culture of Cotton in that
Country. The letter contains information which is curious,
and deserving of attention from its authenti rity: i
" CalfeE, Nay 10.1841.
" I am n??-.v about six hundred mile, from Calcutta, in the
District ol Bundlecund, and have commenced !,n-;ness after
a sort of fashion. A~ l" labor. I ran get plenty, such as it
is; one of our negroes will do mote work than live of the
natives. They an" something like our Cboctaw Indians at
borne, only much inferior in strength, aourage and energy.
There is no forest i".>r them to roam in here. a- the Ciiortaws
have, and they are therefore nur,;? Ii".! to make a living, >tir|,
as it is, by labor, and the rent to the Government eats out the
protit of all they do cultivate. The land here all belongs to
Government, and the natives have to pay rent lor using it.
The rent is from three tri nine rupees per b?gha, according
to situation; the nearer a well the hither the renl, three
beghas make about an acre of measurement. T his grinds
them down so bard that tln-y rarely attempt to make more
than a m</re living, which is nothing but a lmle rice. There
are few of them that ever get animal food at all. so you may
judge what ?ort of creature* they are f,.r labor, compared
with our Negroes at the South. 1 do say tlmr this is a great
deal worse slavery than that of the Slaves in North America.
Von may say they have no masters to order them to their
work as you do slaves, but they are nothing like a. well pro?
vided for or a< happy, Von can biro the best men here for
live pice a day, women arid boys at two 10 three pice?there
are 43 pice in a rupee, and a rupee is worth about ?{?"> cents
of our money?so you see the free laborer here gets lr>.
than live cents per day. or one dollar and a half a month,
with which t<> clothe and feed themselves and pay renl to
" Besides this, there are other circumstances against this
being an Agricultural Country. There is hardly any timber
fit for use. J have seen no tree, -ince I have been here,
higher than tkiriy feet to the top branch. There are no
horses fit for work, except the Arabian brought from Persia,
and sold at hi^h prices, from hundreds up to two thousand
rupees, which is too much for any farm-horse, und so we
have nothing to depend on for ploughing but very small oxen,
much inferior to those in America. We may make about "JUH
pounds of Cotton to the acre, and three acres to the hand,
which will be about 600 lbs., or a bale nnd a half of our
weight to the hand, but I have not vet heard of more than
101) pounds to the acre, and that of very inferior -turf com?
pared with Mississippi Cotton. Still, as this is much better
than the native cultivation, I may do quite as well for
myself as at home, for I am disposed to think the Govern?
ment w ill ba liberal. I shall, nevertheless, return to America
at the close of my engagement.
" The native dres:- here is nothing but a -trip of cloth tied
round the middle, and a turban on tiie bend of another strip,
the test of the body in both sexes is naked, exposed to tin
sun and wuather. The women you may judge of, when I
-ay they are more offensive than the Choc taw women. If
any difference, the Choc taws have it."
The writer's route to India was London. Paris. Lyons.
Malta. Alexandria, down the .Nile to Carin, thence by the
way of the Bed Sea to Bombay and Calcutta, a journey
which, while it excited the wonder ol" a Mississippi Cotton
grower, served also to excite his disgust at many thine* which
met his eve and his olher senses, and caused him lo declare
himself more of an American ilmn eror. [Express.

J. G. CANS-BE, Hf. D., Dentist,
The Teeth, though the hardest animal substance, yield soonest to.
treatment, good or bad. They are easily spoiled, and by judicious
treatment easily preserved. Ii i? no vain boa.t of ihu skilful Dentist,
that diseases of the Teeth are ordinarily subject lo his eon-rot.; in -
? lend it may be regardnd as settled in the public mind, that judicious
treatment secures their permanence. The Teeth, composed sublau
Ually of lime, are of course easily decomposed Uy acids ; and oxygon
beiug Ibe base of acids, we ure led to two important fuels in the pre?
servation of the Teeth.
1st. Keep acids out of the mouth, and every thing out of the
Itrmach that generuic-s acids there, aud your health and Teeth arn
comparatively safe.
2d. Keep every thing out of the mouth that attract* oxygen, and
this for three masons ;
1st. Oxygen being the base of acids, runder* the secretion of ths
mouth doubly acrid, and ihu* the destruction of the Teeth i>
3d. The Oxyde? thus produced are poison, and hence the general
health i? put in jeopardy.
3d. Galvanic action is produced, and by this, both the nerves sod
teeth .utfer. These hints, if duly regarded, will lead to the following;
important practice :
1st. No arid, will ever be used for elennsiii? the Teeth. All tooth
powder, ?hould contain a moderate alkali.
2d. All operators on the Teeth, who use mineral pastes or fusibbs
niet.il-, all of which are composed of metals having ?trong affinity for
oxygen, should be shunned ; their boasted remedies arc far worse,
than the disease they proiM-c to cure.
3d. All combination, of met- Is, such ns Tin. Cold, Silver, Platins,
Ac, should be carefully avoided. The purest metals differ in atfiuity
for oxygen, und of course produce galvanic action when put together
iu the same mouth. Fins Gold is the only metal that should ever
find a lodgment in the human moutn. aud lo this conclusion eve ty
scientific Dentist must inevitably come.
No Demist can consistently oppo-e the use of an ama'gam of
mercury and silver, whilst he is himself in the habit?as is at present
alioo>l every Henlist nt the Union?of using amalgams of Plutina,
Gold, Silver, Copper and Zinc, ander the name of "Cold Plates."
Fine UuU, and Fine (Juld alone for DtnUd eiperatiunt, must soon
become an axiom.
And now I will only add in conclusion, for the information of all
who wi-h lo avoid the evil consequences of compound metals to tho
mouth, that they can be furnished with Teeth ret to fine Cold Plates,
unmixed and SO sd alters ted, by railing at my Room, No. '}*, Broad?
way, New-York, the only place, 'with the exception of Baocxwav
A Son-, in Albany and Troy,; where Teeth are .el to plates, without
introducing lute the mouth an amalgam of at least four metals, all
differing materially in their affinity for oxygen.
One word to ihoee who want entire, or nearly entire ?eis of Teeib,
inserted on the atmospheric pressure or suction principle. My
method of putting in suclioo Teeth, differing tn >ome esaeulial points
from the manner usually adopted, 1 feel confident in saying, atacds
uusurpar sed.
Gentlemen of the profe.siou as well as tliuse requiring professional
services, are invited to call aud examine my method of Matting
Teeth, without the use of soldo r or any olaer base metal.
