flour in these cases, it ought tobe lightly dusted on the surface exposed, either by enclosing it in a bag of suf ficiently open texture to permit its transmission, or by using the common dredging box, in which the article is usually contained. The amount thus applied should he left on : as the discharge oozes through this layer, a second may be added, and thus the part be kept near ly dry. ' Blistered surfaces, when they become extremely painful, and prove obstinate' under the usual applica tions to heal them, are greatly relieved by this mode of treatment. Flour, or powdered starch, has been a long known and familiar remedy for frets or erosions of the 3kin, so common in children, from the friction between the adjacent parts ; and it forms, in these ca ses, the best as well as the simplest remedy.

St. Petersburg, June 10 —By the steam-boat to Luhec, detailed accounts have been received of a victorious engage ment near Paravadi, in which the Grand Vizier, at the head of numerous troops, was defeated by General Roth. General Roth remained master of the field of battle, and took two pair of colors, which Gen. Diebitsch has sent to his majesty. The enemy'lefr above 2000 killed, and a great number of horses on the field. The animosity with which both sides fought, was such that only one Mullah and 45 men were taken prisoners. Our loss was 486 men, 13 officers, 1 staff officer, and Major General Runden, killed; and 1 colonel, 2 Lieut Colonels, 2 staff officers, 26 officers and 596 privates, wounded.

The Leeds Mercury says, "Trade and manufactures, are still m a state of extreme depression in Dewsbury, Heckmond wike, Millbridge, Littletown, Hightown, Robert-town, Hud dersfield, Eiland, and Halifax, through all of which places I have just passed.

' " Stick to the Carriage." —This is advice which has scarcely ever failed to prove salutary when followed in cases where horses become unmanageable, and run off with the vehicles to which they are attached ; while, on the contrary, lives have frequently been lost, and limbs very often broken, where persons have permitted their fears to overcome their judgment, and have at tempted to escape by leaping out. Yesterday after noon a carriage containing two ladies was passing up Baltimore street, when the horses took fright and set oft - at full speed. They ran the distance of four or five squares before they were arrested in their progress, in tlie course of which the carriage was several times ve ry near being overturned. The driver, however, main tained his seat on the box, the ladies their places with in, and the foot boy his stand behind, an'd thus they and by oscapcd without injury except the fright, tempt been made by either to leave the carriage, it is hardly to be doubted that a broken limb, at least, would have been the Had an at on ly the Gulf which lie fifty miles from Lake ly by na, consequence.

The roof was partially bro ken, but only one of the rafters gave way. The whole inju ry exclusive of the spire, will not probably exceed $600.

After the death of Kosciusko, in 1817, Mr Jefferson refusing to take out letters testamentary, they were granted to B. L. Lear. The bill filed by Armstrong against Lear charges, "that said Lear refuses to pay the said sum of $3704, because, among other reasons, a claim to the whole of the funds of said estate has been made by said Major Estko, as heir at law of said Kosciusko, and another claim by the said Monsieur Zoltner, under another will, which he alleges the said Kosci usko to have made in Europe, in favor of himself or some of his relations.''

Finding there was but one oflicer, they laid their weapons aside, and tumbled him neck and heels out of doors. The constable had them all up before the Circuit Court, soon after, when the judge decided that an officer is not authorised to enter a house at such a time, and in that manner, and if he do, the inmates may gently eject him.
