July 25, 1839. 23-8 w MISCELLANEOUS. - GENIUS AND CHARACTER OF MR. ROSCOE. The following is extracted from Lord Brougham's "Sketches of Public Characters." "Mr. Roscoe was, in some respects, the most remarkable person, that has. of late years appeared in either the political or lit erary world. Born in the most humble sta tion, for his parents were meniel servants in the fine country mansion, which afterwards was his own; he had risen to the highest rank in a laborious and useful profession, having become, one of the most eminent of the Lan cashire solicitors a class of practitioners distinguished among those of the kingdom at large; by great knowledge of their profes sion, and admirable skill in the conduct of their clients affairs. Struggling with all the disadvantages of narrow circumstances, and of an education necessarily restricted, he had not only accomplished himself in the legal walks of his profession; but educated himself in more classical studies, so as to have become a great proficient in pursuits seldom if ever before combined with the practice of an attorney. His taste was cul tivated and refined by familiarity with Ro man literature, and hi3 mind was still farther enriched by a thorough acquaintance with the monuments of Italian genius. He devot ed himself, notwithstanding the constant in terruption of his business, to the study of all modern as well as Latin poetry; and with the rare exception of Mr. Mathias, it may be affirmed that no one on this side of the Alps, has ever been more intimately acquaint ed with the writers, especially the poets, of modern Italy. The natural elegance of his mind, connected in a great measure with his honest simplicity of character, and the un ruffled gentlene&s of his bland and kindly temper, wg?Q& displayed in some ' early productions, 3moiy-ivhich his celebrated song on the early progress of the French Re volution, acquired the greatest reputation. But he united 'with the exercise of jtfus ta lent, a love of historical research and an ex ercise of critical power,- which, combined with, his poetical resources and his knowl edge of languages,- to form in him the most accomplished cultivator of literary history that jever appeared in any age. "Although it is by the productions of his pen, that inn Koscoe s name' has been made famous throughout Europe, vet were his merits and bis claims to the gratitude of mankind of a more various kind An ardent devotion from, pure principles, to the best interests of humanity, was the unvarying and constant guide of his public conduct, as the most strict discharge ot every duty, marked each step of his walk in private life A soli citor in extensive practice, he was the advo cate of all 'sound law reforms. An attorney in the borough ?orts, he was the stern, un 3pm promising enemy of chichancery, the- fearless defender of the oppressed. A man of business, under a wealthy and poweOl cor poration, he was ever the implacable denoun cer of jobs and abuses. A confidential ad viser among the aristocracy ofthe most tory county in England, he was the most uncom promising enemy of tvrannv, the friend of the .people the apostle of even Democratic opinions. ' A leader among the parties who most-gained by the war, he. 'was throughout its whole course the zealous preacher of peace; and, standing high among the traders of Liverpool, and at the head of its society, he was the unflinching enemy of the African slave trade, the enthusiastic advocate of its abolition. When he rose in fame and throve in wealth when he became one of the great bankers of the place, and .was courted by all the leading men in - society when las fame was spread over the world, and his na tive town became known in many remote places as having given him, birth when he was chosen to represent her in parliament, ajid associated with the first statesmen of the age, this truly excellent person's unaffected modesty, his primitive simplicity of manners never deserted him.- As his rise in life had been rapid and easy, he bore his good for tune vith an equal mind; and when commer cial distresses of the country involved his affairs in ruin, the clouds which overcast the evening of his days, disturbed not the sere nity of his mind; the firmness which could maintain itself against the gales of prosperi ty, found the storms of adverse fortune, though more boisterous, much louder in their noise, yet not at all deceitful, and really less rude in their shock. His latter years were passed in his much loved literary, leisure consoled by the kindness of his friends, hap py in the bosom of his armnble family, uni versally respected by his countrymen, by all the, wise admired, beloved by all the good.

Jenny takes ths key fjjromfhe hand of mc doc tor, sits down on the log of 'wood, and Very patiently fries to insert it into the hole of the padlock. After repeated failures, all most pa- -' tiently endured, she succeeds, the key is. in serted, but to turn it around so as to start the spring, is too much for her, and she has to. bo indulged with some assistance. - Nothing escapes her araonlhe persons in employ at the mission -house; and every thing is imitated so exactly,' that our risibles are severely taxed as for fnstance,-JeB ny concludes she ought to do something towards the washer woman's department; and. if shc can only be indulged with a tub of water and a piece of rag, she ruba shakes squeezes wrings with all intense application of a first rate laundress. At her meals, too. mis imi tative faculty is equally observable. Jetiuy uses her knife and spoon, and 'if the latter be neid awkwardly, her master demands it from ner, orders the hand to be turned, which she , obeys, and receives the handle of tne spoon ? between her fingers and thumb with no in considerable apish grace. Observing the boy of the house cleaning the knives and forks by niDDiug tnem on tne bord, Jenny concludes that her spoon ought' to receive the same at tention, and so gets a stone, commences a series of rubbing, by no means calculated to give a very file polish. Observing the. car penters at work not long ago she found a nail, obtained a piece of board, and with a small stone for a hammer, began to drive in Ihe nail as fairly as any young apprentice to the trade. But the mo3t amusing -scene is to witness the effect of music on hep-nerves and passions: we sometimes iudulge her with a visit in the mansion house, take up an accordion and play.Ker a tune. The excitement, (he trans port she is thrown into, and her various ges tures and movements are astonishing.

M. E. Goheen, and to be seen at our mission premises. . Jenny, (for so the Dr. calls her) was-obtained by him about five months ago, from a gentleman of this town, who had purchased her from a native, a few months previously. She is four years old and measures two feet four inches in height, being as well propor tioned, and as much like the human species in the formation of the different parts of the body, as any of the same class of animals of which we have any record. She was ta ken quite young by some native Africans, and was clinging to the abdomen of her mo ther when the latter was killed by them. Her teeth are regular and perfect. She has four incisors, and two canine, and six, molars, in each jaw, and presents the exact apparance of a human face and head The length of time she had been in a do mesticated state, and particularly the last five months, have served to develope the aston ishing degree of sagacity approaching al most to reason, with which her species are fumiuKorl hv thn irrant (Creator of man and i it ; n .,r f nmiMemP.nt 8rret bed room, where she had waited until " j i v Vw, r,0 rtt had fallen asleep.

On the passage of the Ship Alexander from New Orleans to New York, a young fad about 14 years, from a naturally frolicksome and mischievous disposition, became so trouble some in his pranks that it was threatened by the Captain if they were continued, that he would confine bim in a water cask. Oar youngster took no heed however, and at the next offence was put in the cask, which was headed up, leaving a large bung hole for the admission of air. That night the ship encoun tered a violent stotm and iu a sudden lurch I the cask containing the bay rolkd over info the sea. 1 be circumstance was not noticed by those on board. Fortunately the cask struck bona op, and floated about thirty hours' when it was thrown Optra the beach at Cane St. Bias. Here the boy made dee prate efforts to extricate himself from his prison without success and in despair gave op to die. Some cows however strolling on the beach, were attracted to the cask and in walking around it, one of the number, it being fly time, switched her tale into the bung hole. wnicn me lad grasped with a desperate resolu tion. The cow bellowed and set off for life. and after running some two hundred yards with the cask, struck it against a tog on the beach, and knock the head in. The boy thus providentially released, was discovered by some fishermen on the beach and taken into Apalachicoia, where a small collection being made for him, he was enabled to proceed North by the way of Columbus. Time. Singular and fatal ease of Somnambulism. A most distressing case occurred on Tues day evening, at 159, Factory street. About seven in the evening, Mrs. Sarah Wilson, resident in the upper story of the above pre mises, placed her little girl, a child of three years and nine months of age, in bed, in a routine of business and care, to take a peep at Jenny occasionally; see her go through her various exercises; all ot which are most ooedi ently performed at the bidding of her master, and mark her diverting powers of imita tion. She is chained by the neck to a piece of wood driven in the ground, the end of which is about 8 inches above the surface. A line just high enough to admit of her grasping it by a slight spring upward, is fastened by one end to the back wall ofthe kitchen, and by the other to a fine orange tree which shades the spot. Jenny's movements on this tightrope are tru ly diverting. She not only suspends with ease by either hand, or either foot for her feet are well adapted to all the purposes for which the hand is used but walks id an erect position on the rope, balancing herself with exact precision by the use of her long arms.
