SALE OF PATENT-RIGHTS FOR THE use of Seely's Patent Lime and Cement Kiln.?The practicability and utility of the above invention, for the speedy and economical manu facture of the best and purest lime and cement, having been fully demonstrated by the working of the kiln, erected by the undersigned, upon his patent, in the city of Washington, he now offers to the public generally an opportunity to purchase the patent-rights for the several States of the Union. Rights for counties will be sold separate ly if desired. The kiln is capable of burning more lime than any three kiln* in the country combined. The average product of the one built in Washing ton is one hundred and ninety barrels of lime per day, with a consumption of only tive cords of wood as fuel. A Cement kiln, built upon this principle, will burn between two hundred and fitly and two hundred and ninety barrels of cement per day. For the manufacture of lime it is capable of cal cining either of the various kinds of limestone or oyster shells. Persons desiring to purchese rights may confcr with Mr. Samuel L. Harris, Washington, D. C., or address him to box 850 ol the post office in said city, he being fully authorized, by me. to act as my ugent in said matter. SAMUEL J. SEELY. Washington, D.

Cliampaigne, under the same name and style as originally intro duced into this market, now nearly thirty years ago, they being sole proprietors of all the identical vineyards, cellars, &c.,' which the founders and originators of this celebrated brand had owned. Such being the fact, we need not dwell upon the superior quality of their Wines, the reputation ot the same among the American public being already identified with unsurpassed excellence. We beg particularly to notice that their brand still bears the same uame of Heidsieck & Co., in full, by which it first became so favorably known, being thereby easily distinguished from other simi lar marks which have since appearad. New York, January 1, 1854. CRAMER & ABEGG, Successor to Charles Engler, nnd sole importers in the United States. STANISLAUS MURRAY is our sub-agent for Washington and Georgetown, D.

CARD.?Upon the dissolution of the old firm, Heidsieck & Co., in 1834, the senior partner, who had the sole charge of its liquidation, con tinued the business, retaining exclusive possession of the vineyards, vaults, iXrc., which the origina partnership had enjoyed. Our new firm are his immediate successors and sole proprietors of this well-known brand. In order to distinguish the same from imitations and marks similar to our own, which have ap peared and may hereafter appear in this market, the name of our firm in full will be found on the labels and around the corks.

Ulistellaint. Mercantile Biography. Hunt's Merchant's Magazine for March, in continuation of itH " Mercantile Biography," has a sketch of the late Samuel Appleton, esq., ono of the "solid men"' of Boston. We make an extract which we are sure will be read with interest: "A stranger on seeing him, we think, would have> been first struck by liis apparent sim plicity and open-hearted honesty. It was his manner, in his look, and in the tones of his voice. There was no mistaking it. He was an honest man. Without subterfuge or dis guise, incapable of anything indirect or under handed, he had no concealments of his own, and anything in the form of a secret was to him a trouble and a burden. He knew of but one way of speaking, and that was, to say straight on the truth. It was a principle jjrown into a necessity of his moral life. He did not know what else to say. It might be difficult to utter it; he really could not help it. And so, out of the simplicity of his nature, his yea was yea, and his nay, nay. This was allied with the kindest and tenderest feelings. No one felt more pain in giving pain to another. But though he might be kind, and gentle, and tender, he could not help being honest. He was himself so thoroughly upright that it was hard for him to doubt the honesty of other men, and, as is often tho case, men were to him what he expected them to be. Said the writer of this notice to him?and the answer threw light alike on his own character and on the character of' merchants generally: 'You have been long engaged in business, under a gre^t variety of circumstances, and in different countries; what is your opiuion in regard to the honesty of mankind?' ' Very favorable,' he replied. 'Very generally I think they mean to be honest. I have never in my life met with more than three or four cases in which I thought a man intended to be dishonest in deal A striking evidencecf his charactcr, and of the way in which he himself was regurded, occurred on the only occasion during his life when he was sued. About the year 1820, a merchant tailor, named Endicott, died, leaving a residue of his estate to a Baptist society. Among his papers was a note signed by Samuel Appleton, and endorsed by Ducoster &, Mar shall, for a few hundred dollars. The commit tee of the society called on Mr. Appleton for payment. The handwriting was so very like his that it was impossible to distinguish one from the other; but he refused to pay it, de claring it to be, in spite of the resemblance, a forgery. A suit was brought on the note, which was in fact outlawed. He would not, however, allow any plea of this kind to be made, but steadily denied the signature. As the endorsement was evidently genuine, and no other person of the same name was known, the whole matter was developed in mystery. This was increased by the fact that he had dealings with the house of Ducoster k Marshall, as ap peared by his books, though nothing was found in them to confirm this note. On the trial, his brother was called as one of the witnesses. He testified that he could not distinguish the signature from Mr. Appleton's handwriting; but that, as he himself had kept the books at the time, and his brother's notes were always paid when due, and there was no traces of such a note, it could not be genuine. Notwith standing this admitted resemblance of the hand writing, and notwithstanding the charge of the judge was rather against the defendant, the jury found a virdict in his favor. Mr. D. Ellis was foreman, and he stated tho verdict was founded on the fact that the jury was quite sure that Mr. Appleton would not dispute the the payment of the note, except on the certain ty that* he did not owe it. " Mr. Appleton, however, was not satisfied to leave the matter here, if it was possible to un ravel the mystery. Some years after, he was in Italy, and went to-Naples, where Mr. Degan at that time resided?the gentleman who was assignee of Ducoster and Marshall, and Jiad made the endorsement in their behalf. His first step on landing was, not to visit any of the wonders of nature or art, but to search out Mr. Degan, who, in answer to his inquiries, stated he perfectly well recollected the circum stance of there being such a note, but that the signer of the note was a ship-master of the saine name, who resided in Portland, and who had been dead for some years. Besides his memory of the event, he had at his country house the books of the firm, and on examining them they were found to confirm entirely Mr. Appleton's convictions, and to show the rea sonableness of the confidence placed by his neighbors and fellow-citizens in his accuracy and integrity." A Holy War.?Russia is using every de vice to give the character of a holy war to the hostilities, and tho soldiers are told they are on the way to rescue Christ's sepulchre from the infidels. Tho patriarch of Moscow had issued an address to the sixth corps, on leaving for the Danube, of which tho following is a trans lation : " Children of the czar, our father, and of Russia, our mother! our brothers of the arrny! the czar, the country and Christianity, call up on you. The prayers of the church and the country accompany you. Russia is again pro voked by an enemy who was vanquished under Catharine II, under Alexander I, and under Nicholas I. Already have your brothers re vived the old habit of beating him by land and by sea. If it be decreed by Providence that you are to see the enemy in front of yon, re collect, then, that you arc fighting for the most Eious of czars, for your dear country, for the oly church against the persecutors of Chris tianity, against tho profaners of the holy and venerated cities, whicn have seen the birth, the passion and the resurrection of Christ. Now, if ever, victory, glory, benediction, and eternal benediction, are due to those,who give their life for their faith in God, for their faith to their czar and their country?'By faith you will gain victory'?(Hebrews, chap, ii, 13.) You, likewise, will conqucr by faith. We bid you farewell, with our prayers and with the symbol of our faith. Carry with you, and re collect the warlike and victorious speech of the czar-prophet, David : 1 Salvation and glory is in God.' (Psalm 41st") The Journal of Commerce thinks it extraor the expedition now in search of Sir John Frank lin, the British admiralty should order tho name of the distinguished discoverer and his com rades of the Erebus and Terror to be stricken from tho navy list on tho 31st March, and that afterwards the allotment made to their wives and children shall cease, unless, in the mean time, accounts shall be received that the absent officers are found to bo in existence. The Journal thinks? " The announcement ii the more remark ing with me. UK ..i Sir John Franklin. waiting the result of WASHINGTON SENTINEL TERMS OF ADVERTISING.

''When men peril their lives in the Arctic ocean, for the fame and honor of their country, they should not receive the summary treatment, which, tinder the statute of limitations, is ap plied to a note of hand, after the lapse of a few years. * * * ?. ? # ? "No one has yet followed Franklin into th? open Polar sea, unless it be Dr. Kane. The efforts hitherto made have been wholly ineffi cient, and they do not warrant the hasty and cruel decision of the British admiralty." The Journal evidently is no believer in the theory that the world knows now all of Frank lin it ever will know; for, in conclusion, the ed itor says: " It is the common belief of Arctic naviga tors, that a succession of islands line the north west coast of Baffin's bay to and beyond Beh ting's straits. Failing to find an open pas sage from the Polar sea, through openings between those islands to those straits, Frank lin would of course winter, as did Captain M'Clure, in the most convenient and accessible harbor, aud, no doubt with the same result, Captain M'Clure took the inner passage be tween those islands and the continent. The means now exist for the traversing this entire region with safety, rapidity, and certainty, aud they will be promoted by the presence of Cap tain M'Clure s vessel at Behring's island?one of the series of islands to whicn allusion has been made. The question whether or not Sir John Franklin and his comrades have died in the service of England, cannot be justly de cided, in view of these facts, until after the in tervening space between the waters wbich flow into the Atlantic, and those which flow into the Pacific, shall have been thoroughly and in vain examined. Proper examination has not yet been made and cannot be made before the 31st March,as it will then be Arctic winter; and we trust that an grder so inhuman and barba rous, and so discreditable to a civilized and Christian community, will be overruled by the British government and people." Amusing Scene in Havana Harbor.?The petty particularity with which the harbor regu lations of Havana are enforced against United State steamers stopping there, en route from New York to New Orleans, would be amusing, if it were not at times so vexatiously annoy ing. The presence of anything in the shape of an American vessel seems to give the serf like devotees of Spanish tvranny an ague fit, and like " that dreadful bell" in fair Cyprus, literally " frights the isle from its propriety." When the Crescent City arrived there, on its last trip, the sun was just on the point of set ting. The pilot was taken on board, and the jteamer having passed the Moro. was within a few lengths of the guard-ship, when bang went the sunset gun, ana down went the yellow bit of bunting on which were displayed the arms of " Her Most ? Catholic Majesty." The pilot was in a panic, and told the captain he mnst stop the engine. This being done, the vessel was found to have been propelled by the head way upon her about a lengtn beyond the guard ship. The pilot, " almost distilled to jelly with the act of fear," must have the steamer backcd out, and did not feel at all easy in his boots till she was safely anchored for the night, half-way between the More and the guard-snip. Captain Baxter, annoyed at this ridiculous en forcement of the very letter of an absurd regu lation, endeavored to get permission to go into his usual berth, but the proper official, though carefully sought for, could not be found, and there he was obliged to stay until sunrise. Just before sailing in the morning, the quar termaster proceeded to hoist the American flag to the mast-head, as usual. It was run up furled, and awaited the order of the captain to give it to the breeze. At length the word was given, u Let go the bunting!" and, much to the surprise of the captain, who did not know there was such a mischievous thing on board, there streamed forth a broad blue and red flag, with a single whito " lone star" glittering on its folds! Of course it was forthwith hauled down to make way for the stars and stripes; but it could not be done so quickly as to prevent the pervasion of the awfnl panic that shot like electricity throughout the city. It was attrib uted to the rage of the captain at being de tained, aud terrible consequences were pre dicted by some of the quaking Cubans as sure to happen thereupon. Passengers who were coming on board for this port were seriously adyisea not to venture, as the Crescent City would of course be stayed by the authorities. But the breeze blew over, as many a breezo of the same kind has done hitherto in those waters, and is likely to do again, before some important questions in politics are fully settled. I [JYl O. Picayune. Remedy for the Bite of a Mad Dog.?As a cry of mad dogs has been raised, the follow ing, which we clip from an exchange, may he worth a perusal: " A Saxon forester, named Gastell, now of the venerable ago of 82, unwilling to take to the grave with him a secret of sucn import, has made public in the Leipsic Jottrnal, the mean * which he had used for fifty years, and where with he affirms he has rescued many human beings and cattle from the fearful death of hy drophobia. Take immediately warm vinegnr or tepid water, wash the wound clean there with, and then dry it; pour then upon the wound a few drops of muriatic acid, because mineral acids destroy the poison of the saliva, by which means the evil effect of the latter ia neutralized." Close Calculation.?Such a delicacy has been a attained by Wheatstone's invention of a rapidlv-rotating mirror, that the French physicists Fizcau and Foucault have meas ured the amount of time occupied by the pas sage of light through a distance of twelve feet; and, as we know that light travels at the rate of two hundred thousand miles in a second of time, it follows that the portion of time actually measured was the sixty-seven millionth part of a second ; a division of time so impalpable to our conception, that although we know it must be, yet we are utterly unable to realize it. ' Corn Bread.?-A New Recipe.^?Everybody who has been at the Mansion House, Buffalo, New York, h%s learned the luxury of the com bread there provided. The clerk is often taxed to write directions for home manufacture, and I thus procured a recipe for domestic use, which I copy for you, so that those who wish may try a piece of bread from the Mansion. It is as follows : One quart of sour milk, two ta ble spoonfuls of sal eratus, four ounces of but ter, three table spoonfuls of flour, three eggs, and corn meal sufficient to make a stiff batter.
