Swift's Wonder or Wondebs. ? Some of our rea
ders have probably met with a whimsical article 111
Swift's works, entitled, 'The Wonder of all the Won
ders that ever the World wondered at," being an an
nouncement of the performances of the famous artist,
John Emanuel Schoitz, from whose feats of legerde
demain, Ac., we select a few specimens : ?
" He lets any gentleman charge a blunderbuss with
gunpowder and twelve leaden bullets, which blunder
F>uss the said artist discharges full 111 tlm face of the
?aid company, without the least hurt ? the bullets
sticking in the wall behind them.
"He takes any gentleman's own sword and runs
through the said gentleman's body, so that the paint
appears bloody at the back, to all the spectators; ?
then he takos out the sword, wipes it clean and returns
it to the owner, who receives no inanuer of hurt.
"He will heat a bar of iron red hoi. and thrust it
into a barrel of gunpowder, before ail the company,
and yet it ?hall not take fire.
" He takes a pot of scalding oil, and throws it by
great lad lei ds directly at the ladies, without spoiling
their clotlus, or burning their skins.
" He likewise draws the teeth of half a dozen gentle
men, mixes aiid jumbles them in a hat, gives any
person leave to blindfold him, returns each their own,
and fixes them as firm as ever.
" He takes any person of quality's child, from two
years old to six, and lets the child's own father or
mother take a pike in their hands; then the artist
takes the child in his armsaad tosses it upon the point
of the pike, where it sticks, to the great satisfaction
of all spectators ; and is then taken ofij without so
muc h as a hole in his coat.
" With miny other performances of art too tedious
here to mention."

A Hiohlanb Echo. ? In the course of last summer
some strangers of distinction were induced to visit a
wild and unfrequented retreat in a distant part of the
Highlands, chiefly from the report they had heard of
an echo, remarkable for the clear and distinet nature
of its reverberation. On reaching the spot from j
whence the trial of its powers is usually made, their
guide put his hand to tlie side of his mouth, and bawl
ed with the lungs of a Stentor, a salutation in Gaelic,
which was repeated with a precision that seemed be
yond the expectation of the party. One of the gen
tlemen, by way of trying the strength of his voice, put
his hand to the side of his mouth, in the same manner
as the guide, and called out " How far are we from
h<9me? These words, much to the surprise of their
conductor, were also repeated, when pqor Donald,
with a simplicity that brought a sihileover the fea
tures of all present, observed, "You may think it
strange, gentlemen, .but this is the first time I ever
heard our echo speak English." " I have no doubt,"
said the gentleman, "but it can repeat other languages
if put to the test," and instantly bawled out some
French, Spanish, and Italian. Donald looked more
bewildered than ever. " Weel, I must say, that's very
queer; my own father and my own self have known
that eciio for more than seventy years, and we never
knew it nse no language but the Gaelic language be
fore." " Your echo is more learned, then, than you
supposed," said the gentleman, laughing, though at a
loss whether to impute Donald's remark, to archness
er simplicity. "You may say that, but can you tell
me, sir," said the poor fellow, with an expression of
earuastnest* that appeared highly amuvine to those
present, the echo has never been out of the coun
try, where can she have got all her education ? ?
jLai rd qf Lot ;an,
Sqcirrfls. ? It is a curious circumstance, and not
generally known, that most of those oaks winch are
called spontaneous are planted by the squirrel. This
little animal has performed the most essential ser
vice to the British navy. A gentleman walking one
day in the woods belonging to the Puke of Beaufort,
near Troy House, in the county of Monmouth, his
attention was diverted by a squirrel, which sat very
composedly on the (round. He stoppe 1 to observe
his motions; in a few moments the squirrel darted to
the top of a tree, beneath which he had been pitting.
In an instant he was down with an acorn in his
mouth, and after digging a small hole, We stooped
down and deposited the acorn; then covering it, he
darted up the tree again. In a moment he was down
again with another, which he buried 111 the same
manner. This he continued to do as long as the ob
server thought proper to watcli h:in. This industry
of the little animal is directed to the purpose ?f se
curing him against want in the winter) and it is pro
liable that Ins memory is not sufficiently retentive to
enable him to remember the spot in which Ik; depo
sited every ucorn. This industrious little fellow, no
doubt, tones a few every year; these few spring up,
and are destined to supply the place of the parent
tree. Thus is Britain in some measure indebted to
the industry and bad memory of a squirrel for lur
pride, her glory, and her very existence.? > rap Hook.
Assostatiom.? It is said that the idea of ascending
in the nir by means of a balloon, absolutely nrufi
nated in a very singular and simple manner. Mons.
Mongolfier's wife was preparing to cut up a loaf of
sugar, and taking oft' the paper cap lrotn the top, she
threw it on the tire; the smoke and draft (as we call
it) operat.ngon it, carried it through the flue, and the
fortunate Frenchman had the satisfaction to ?ee it
ascend above the top of the chimney. He reflected
on the incident, and proceeded to make a tissue paper
bag, and inflated it with smoke produced from cork
cuttings? tlr.s succeeded agreeably to his expecta
tions. He was soon imitated by others, and the ex
Eerimeni* on gssen, and principally by our Priestly,
rought ballooning to a climax.
The Diess or the Patagoniass. ? Nothing is
worn upon the head except their rough, lank, and
Coarse black hair, which is tied above the temples by
a fillet of plaited or twisted sinews. A large mantle
of skins, s?<we<l together, loosely gathered about them,
hanging from the shoulders to tne ancles, adds s i much
to the bullin' ss of th ir appearance, that one ought
not to wonder at their having been called gigantic. ?
Among ?00 or :W0 natives of Patagonia, scarcely half
a doten men are seen whose height is under five feet
nine or ten inches; the women are proportionacly tall.
On their fee* and lf,g"*re boots, made of the skins of
horses' hmd le^s. Wooden (if they cannot get iron)
spurs, sets of bells, connected by a thong of hide,
which they throw at animals or men, to entangle or
disable them ; a long tapering lance, and a knife (if
one can be procured) complete theirequipment. The
women ars dn-ssed and booted like tfee men, with the
addition of a half petticoat.
Florida ? ( >fflcial reports l- ? 5th June have been
received from Tampa Bay. Theee reports state that
on thenieht of the '2d instant the Micau9aukies,abont
two hundred in number, sufiounded the ramp of Mi
canopy, Jumper and Cloud. and forced them awny.
The order* from Sam Jones and Oceola wrrr not to
molest any white m?n. Micanopy refused t<> go.
Maying that he had signed atrwa'y. and should hold
to it. He was answered that if he did n"t go his
blood w<mld bespilt. His reply was to kill him there,
and to do it quickly. They, however, forced him on
his horse, and carried him ott. Jumper having sold
all his horses, they forced him to walk. The sincerity
of Micanopy and Jumper cannot be doubted. Cloud,
however, was always a traitor, and was the only one
'Who had been warned what was to take place.
(leneral Jeswp states thsi the scheme of emigra
tion has entirely failed, and that he shall immediately
discharge tb< vessels which had been employed to
carry the Indians off. He does aot anticipate a te
newal of hostilities. Measures have been taken to
place the troopa in positions to as to cover the coun
tr j. ?Globe.
Cheering Prospect. ? The Wheeling Times of
Tuesday says : " But a few short days since, the
Iiills were almost barren of verdure; tney are now
I clothed with the richest and deepest green ; the grass
that seamed backward in breaking from its winter co
vering, now waves beautifully before the gentle
breeze of summer, and the grain shows an increase
ih its fair proportions with almost every sunning sun.
The farmers are confident of an abundant harvest;
and if the weather should continue favorable, it will
be but little if any later than usual. There will be a
vast quantity of wheat gathered this year, as there
was much more than usual sowed last year in con
sequenceof its high price for two or three years past."
Willis has just completed a tragedy for Miss Clif
ton, for which she has paid him one thousand dollars.
We are glad to see dramatic authors looking up. It is
high time. Captain Marryatt is said to be writing a
sea drama for J. it. Scott, a promising American
actor. He is now in this city. ? Boston Cent.
Fatal Occurrence. ? The Columbus Sentinel,
(Georgia) gives an account of an unfortunate difficul
ty which took place in that city, betweeu a Mr. Tho
mas W. Howe, formerly of the city of Boston, but
for the last two months of Columbus and a young
man by the name of Richard C. Ridgway. A meet
ing was sought by the latter ? but f?w words passed
between them, when Ridgway drew a pistol and shot
him down? the ball entering on the loft side of the
neck, and ranging downwards into the right breast.
Mr. Howe survived until the next evening, when
death ended his sufferings. Ridgway is in jail, to
await his trial at the term of the Superior Court in
October next.
The Nobles of Germany formed a Temeprance So
ciety in 1600, and adopted by-laws, wherein t'ley
pledged themselves never to get drunk, not to drink
but fourteen glasses of wine aday, and to eat only
" two head meals in twenty-four hours," besides a
luncheon. It was further provided that ?
" If any member should infringe the constitutions
of the order, three staid and well-conducted brothers
shall pronounce on the guilt of the accused, and if
found guilty, adjudge him to the greater or lesser
punishment at their discretion. The greater to be,
that from the date of his crime, for the period of one
year he shall not be allowed to be present at any
tournament or Knightly play, either horse or foot.
The next punishment, that for the space of one year,
he be n?t allowed to drink wine; and as a still light
er, should such be deemed proper, the culprit shall be
adjudged to forfeit the two best horses in his stable,
and to pay a fine of three hundred dollars."
Thh Weather and Crops. ? A more growing sea
son we do not remember. We have had rather more
rain than was necessary, but the crops of every kind
promise abundantly. The Wheat and Rye crops are
made, all that is wanting for them is dry weather, to
harden the grain, and a good harvest-home. Fruit is
abundant ; of apples there is an unusual display.
Our market is well stocked with all the vegetables
the climate and season affords, and th?se of the best
quality. Accounts from all parts of the Union, agree
in the very promising appearance of crops of all
kisds, except Frederick County, Maryland ? there
they are determined never to have a crop of any thing
but complaints, and of them they always have an
average crop. ? Cin. Post, Ju. 14.
?CrWe have seen some beautiful specimens of gold
from some of our mines, within the last two days. ?
Old Virginia is brushing up ? getting ready for the
tide which is fast approaching in her affairs ; and she
will as certainly avail herself of it as it comes. Enter
prise is searching out her vast mineral storehouses ?
while ingenuity and industry are planning' facilities
of transportation all over the state. This gladdens
the hearts of the chosen people of God, the farmers
? and they are preparing for an increase of products
and plying themselves with diligent hands. What
can momentary derangement in money matters do
with ua? so singularly blessed by the hand of Provi

Steam Navigation ok the Atlantic. ? The N.
Haven Herald publishes the following letter, dated
London, May 11, 1837. ? 'The steam ship of 1900
tons which we are now building fur the New York
trade, is getting forward rapidly, and if it should please
God to spare my life and health, 1 hope next Spring
to take out late news. Some of our philosophers,
reasoning from coasting bouts, and coufimng them
selves to coasting boat9, and not bong able or willing
to stretch their intellect an inch beyond a coasting
boat, have come to the conclusion that no steam ship
ran possibly carry coal enough to steam a greater dis
tance than 2200 mile*, and as the distance from Ports
mouth to New York is 3000 miles, therefore a steam
ship cannot run to New York.
'In answer to such reasoning, I take the liberty to
reply, that thesteain ship we are now building, could,
if necessary, take a sufficient quantity of coal on
hoard to steam to New York ami back. The ship is
calculated to take 25 days consumption of fuel, ftOO
tons measurement yoods, and ftOO passenger*. She
is 235 feet upon deck, 40 feet beam exclusive of pud
dles, 27 feet hold, with throe decks. The calculation
is to make an average passage to New York in 15
days, and something less home.
She is nearly double the size of any steam ship that
has as yet been built for deep sea navigation, and
when a steam ship is proportioned to her intended
voyage, I rannot see any more difficulty in perform
ing it than there is in running from London to Gibral
Melancholy and hngvlar event. ? The house
of Mr. Henry <*ay, in New Lebanon, Columbia coun
ty, about a mile from the l'resbyterian meeting house,
was consumed by fire on the afternoon of the 3d inst.,
and we regret to add that the aged mother of Mr. <Jay,
who was infirm and sick, and his lit tie daughter, about
four years old, lost their lives. The cirrnmstances
attending this occurrence are not l?ss extraordinary
than melancholy. It is supposed that the fire origi
nated from the spontaneous combustion of feathers,
which had been taken fn?m a bed on which Mrs. (J.
had lain, and who had died a few days previous. The
feathers had been washed, and spread in a close room
to dry; and a little son of Mr. G. who had been in the
loom, remarket! that they were hot. The first that
was discovered of the fire, was the smoke issuing
from the house, and the neighbors were there in the
course of fifteen or twenty minutes; but not iu time
to save the lives of the old lady or the child, whose
ruins were found partly consumed, in the room ad
lactfnt to that in which the feathers had been placed.

Treasury Dapartment, May 26, 1837.
To the President or the United States :
Sir. In consequence of the recent suspension of
specie payments by most of the banks in which the
disbursing officers of the (roveruinent made their de
posites of public money, the undet signed has deemed
it proper to take the opinion of the Attorney General
on the effect of that measure upon those depositee,
and in consequence thereof to submit the following
recommendations to the President i
1st. That all those officers be instructed by the
several departments to which they belong to make
their subsequent depostte* in those banks only which
pay specie, if such can conveniently be resorted to
for that purpose.
2d. That in the event of there being none such,
they are to be instructed to depositc in those hanks
which are willing to give, and do give, such written
obligations as the nearest District Attorney of the
I'nited States may deem sufficient, and safe to se
cure the return of the deposits punctually, when
wanted, in such kind of money as was placed in
said banks ; and
3d. That the existing deposites of those office!*,
wherever not now in such banks, and not soon cx
Bndcd, be withdrawn, and placed within them as
r as practicable. Respectfully submitted,

See., served up in all the various forms of cookery that ingenuity

a place lietter suited to their mind than thealxive mentioned ?
for there in addition to gentlemanly attendance, they will find
good entertainment, and all the necessary requisites thai cha
