rUM.-'EKI.AND SII.VKK MINKS. The following is tlio report of the two committees, which were selected bv Jas. V. Symons, Esq , to witness certain assays 01 me ore ai tnc Cum berland Fall, on the 20th day of No vember, 1850: Cumberland Fai.m, Nov. 20th 1850 We, the undersigned, being select ed by James V. Symons, Esq., ns constituting his first committee to wit ness ami examine the first assay or test of the ore nt this place, which was to be made by him in pursuance to notices heretofore given in the newspapers, &c, do make the follow ing report, to-vvit : i Inasmuch, as there had been con siderable excitement as well as grent doubts manifested by many, as to the; true qualities oi sanl ore, ami ueing desirous that all such doubts should be finally removed and put to rest, the one way or the other, and in order that every fact which could be ne cessary to the final accomplishment nnd attainment of this end, should be brought to bear, nnd the more espe cially as many of us came upon the ground under the firm belief that there was no silver in said ore. In the first place, we proceeded to the bank or mino from which said ore was taken, and then anJ there caused a piece or lump of the same to be dug out in our presence; wo then carried the same to the assayinc furnacf, where we carelullv pulverized it. and witnessed the mixing thereof with the fluxes, nnd then and there saw tha crucibles placed in said furnace, nnd carefully and critically attended to the whole process of assaying nnd smelting the ore contained in said crucibles, which rjroduccd the following result: two minces of the ore viclded 10 trrs. of pure silver, amounting to 5!)3,13 IJ ounces to the ton of ore. They would further report that 'his was not a lair nssay, owing to the fact that the coal used was not well ooaked and furnace being in bad or der, the continued press of the sur- rniuidiiiir crowd, the loss of some of the metal in pouring the same out of the crucible, the wont of proper im- nlnmcnts. &.C.. in consequence of which we think nt least one-half the pure metal was lost. Neither Professors SchaefTer Peter bcinff present, and having, wn understand, nllfdircd that silver n i , was put in the fluxes which had heretofore been used by Mr. Symons. in order to produce silver from said ore, or to have the appearance of do. ing so, and the committee not being prepared to analyse said fluxes, at the request of Mr. Symons a portion of each flux was put in the bands of Dr. P. Mason and Chas. Uidgewny. Esq.. to be handed to Prof. SchaefTer, of Danville, for his examination, there being no one present to bi.ar any of them to Prof. Peter. In:imnnli ns wo understand there- have been some charges of fraud, imposition.juogling, tfcc.made against Mr. Symons in regard to the tests which he has heretofore made of said ore, we take great pleasure in saying that lie was perfectly Iree in exhibit ing nil his fluxes, nnd in explaining, to us ns far as possible, the whole prin' ciple upon which the nssay was made, and the result, and we have no hesi tation i.i saying that, in our opinion, he is nn accomplished scholar, and n perfect gentleman, nnd in all respects skilled nnd well qualified to perform the duties of an assaycr and smelter, and that he is wholly incapable of the comm ssion of fraud, imposition, trick ery, or juggling, and that we look upon him ami feel proud to acknow l edge that he is one of Kentucky's grentest benefactors, nnd that his name will bo written upon the bright pages of history in future nes, ns a benefactor to posterity, and as such we lender him our most sincere thanks. The Second Committee would say, that they fully nnd In all respects concur in the statements nnd declara tions made in the foregoing report, with the exception of the result of the assav made in our presence, which is aa follows: two ounces of the ore pro duceJ 31 grains of pure silver, making 1150 5-19 ounces to the ton of ore.

He continued, however, his course of dis sipated h:i hits, until he was reduced to a condition of utter destitution houseless, and homeless. frionilln and pennyless he was driven to the extreme ol starvation, wandering about, seeking shelter wherever chance directed him. Patent Deviltry. A new thing nas laieiv presented itself to public favor, which is as complete a speci men of patent deviltry ns human in' ccnuity can devise nn infernal ma dune, compared with which in its capacity for detling destruction nnd death, the device of a Fieschi is but a plaything. It consists of a smail capsule composed of gum nnd sugar, enc.nsing about n fourth of a tea spoonful of brandy, just about enough, with the excited saliva, to make si) all toddy in the mouth, adapted to the ambition and capacity ot the ns ing generation. These things, it np pears, are sold nt the confectionnries in the large cities north nnd east. rive cents worth ol them contain about a table spoonful of brandv, enough to give a bov, ns nn initial operation at least, quite an expeii mental notion of a 'drunken spree. vVho claims the honor of this inven tion we do not know, but the article seems first to have nttrnctcd the nt tention of a Dr. Jewctt, of Rhode Island, who hns warned parents and the public nt large against them. Baltimore Sun, "Tell," a correspondent of the Bos ton Post, wrote the following, which contains a wicked word, and should not, therefore, be read by anybody: County court was sitting a while ago, in, on the banks of the Connecticut. It was not far from this time of year cold weather, any how and a knot of lawyers had collected around the old 1' ranklm. in the bar room. The fire blazed, nnd muss ol flip wero. passing nway without a groan, when in come n rough, gaunt looking"lnbo of the wooes," knapsack on shoulder nod staff in hand. Me looked cold, and half perambulated the circle that hemmed in the fire, as with n wail of brass, looking for n chance to warm his shins. Nobody moved, however; and, unable to sit down for lack of n chair, he dij the next best thing leaned against the wall, "with tears in his lists and eyes doubled up," and listened to te dis cussion on the proper way of serving a referee on n warrantee deed, ns ii he was the Judge to decide the mat ter, Soon he attracted the attention of the company, nnd a young sprig spoke to him. "Yon look like n trav eler. 'Wall, I spose I am I come from Wisconsin afoot 't any rate " "From Wisconsin? That is a dis tance to go on one pair of less. 1 sny, did you ever pus through hell on your travels?" "Yis sir," he nns we red -a kind of wicked look stealing over his ugly phizinahojrany "I been through the out-skirts." "I thought likely. Well, what arc the manners and customs there some of us wouM like to know." "Oh." says the pi I -;rim deliberately half shutting his eyes, nnd drawing round the corner of his moult) till two rows of yellow stubs with a mass of masticated pic tail appealed through the slit of his cheek "you'll find them much the same as in this region: the lawyers sit nigltest the fire. Prolific Pullets. Mr. S. S. Law rence, of Tynsborough, Massachu setts, has a Hlunghai pullet, eight months old, that has laid forty-two large size eggs in fortyfive days. One day she hid two of the above number. Mr. Lawrence, also, has one other Shanghai pullet, seven months old, of Marsh's stock, that has laid twenty-two egas in twenty-three days, and is laying daily, at the presi ent date. Freak op Nature. A lady of distinguished rank ia Paris, lately gave birth to a child, which, though otharwise well formed, was totally without brain. The young creature, like the sensitive plant, experienced ihe liveliest emotion upon bjing touch ed. The top of the !-ead was com pletely flat, which, joined to a long and narrow jaw. gave to the face the resemblance of the head of a rabbit. It lived iwentv-two hours, to the great astonishment of the doctors who had assembled to inspect this extraordi nary phenomenon. Wanted A few knshela of Irish Pota ss. Apply st this offics.
