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.

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.
