The given rower is communicated by four revolving sails [criirot shape.) placed over the centre of the which are acted upon by the wind from point whatever, without in the least inter rupting the progress of the vessel. The seri al consequences often arising from the effects of sudden squalls are hereby completely obvia ted from the accelerated horizontal action which sails acquire, one counteracting the weight of the other in a direct ratio. This invention ” a|S0 ^ of infinite utility in the construction of mills used in every description ol manufac ture In fact we deem it one of the most im rtant discoveries of modern times. The in ventor Mr John Willis, of whose talent and Lnius we have often spoken, intends taking U a patent for the discovery. W exford Independent. One of the late Philadelphia papers relates a most melancholy instance of depravity, termi mtin* fatally, in infancy, at a moment when fortune was prepared to shower her favors up on the hapless victim of evil associations. It was the case of a lad from the country, of most respectable and worthy connections, who had been reared in habits of innocence and virtue, until apprenticed to the printing business in that city, and who, by ignorantly at first going out into the streets at night to play with other bovs was gradually led "on to the formation of pverv evil habit, which he expiated by an ear lv and disgraceful death in a foreign land, just at the time when he might have inherited a handsome estate. t This is no uncommon incident, and the chro nicles ol our jails, penitentiaries, and alms-hous es abound in similar narratives. Amongst our philanthropists who are busy in forming societies and plans for the suppression of vice and immortality, none has yet directed attention to this fruitful source of crime and con sequent misery. Can there be no plan devised for keeping boys off the streets at night? Can not those "assemblages at the corners, the fire engine houses, and other places of resort, be dispersed. Is there no mode of preventing them from parading our streets at all hours of the night and disturbing the sleep of others by their noisy and tumultuous uproar? If the police can not suppress this nuisance, certainly it is incum bent upon the parents, guardians and masters to employ or retain these minors at home. Can those to whom the government of youth is con fided, sleep soundly whilst their charges are thus spending their nights in disgraceful and de moralising rioting and debauchery? Christians Patriots. Parents, what says conscience!!! Balt. Gaz. Outrage.—On Saturday evening last, an in famous outrage was committed by some person or persons unknown, in the Free Church, in this city. While the minister of that Society was delivering his Sermon, as usual, to his congre gation, a tremendous explosion, equal to that of; a twelve pounder, took place within the build ing, not in the audience room, but in the enclos ed passage to the north aisle. The sash of the window near the explosion was broken out, and a man near the door was somewhat injured.— Much fright and some fainting was occasioned, but happily no great actual injury sustained.— The explosion was of gun powder prepared like that of a petard. During the same evening, as we hear, a mob collected near the meeting house of the African M>»thodi<ts, and disturbed the worship of the people assembled there. One colored man is said to be seriously injured. Other outbreak ing* of lawless violence have repeatedly taken place of late in this city. Are there no means to repress these disorders, and to secure our fa milies, and dwellings and churches from the danger and barbarous malignity of such as* saultsl—Hartford Elector. A Vw Engine of H«r.—A new instrument or machine has been invented by Mr Toplis, of the Museum of National Manufactories in London, which he considers calculated to put an end to WarN and to prevent civilized nations from engaging hereafter in the work of mutual de struction. Mr. Toplis has constructed an engine, which, according to his views, will render armed mul t tudes powerless against any people disposed defend themselves; a score of men, with this a'*Xiiiary power, being competent to annihilate m* army which could he collected. The jmgme is portable, and, without its casing, might ^ carried bv two men; mounted on its proper carriage, it can be moved w ith celerity into any situation where horses or men can go; it is rea L>'for action in a moment, and can be made, at Wl'h to pour out, for any desired time, a conti nuous stream of bullets, which can be di rected towards any point or object, with the mtie facility as the stream of water from a fire rigine and with perfect precision; whilst the men who direct it are sheltered in entire secu f,!.v- Mr. Toplis looks forward with so much confidence to the moral influence which this new * eighty power must exercise upon the world, lt denominates his engine the Pacificator.

In Baltimore, on the 19th inst, at a quarter af ter 11 o’clock, A M. the most Rev. James Whit field, Arch Bishop of Baltimore. He was born at Liverpool in England, on the 3d of No vember, 1770. Hts father, James Whitfield, a respectable merchant of that city, gave him the advantages of a liberal education. At the age i of seventeen, he was bereaved of his father, and became the protector of his mother. To assuage her grief and to restore her sinking health, he accompanied her to Italy. On his return from that country, where he had been for some time engaged in mercantile pursuits, he : found himself in France at the time when Napo leon had decreed that every Englishman in France was a prisoner. He spent the greatest part of his exile in Lyons, where he became acquainted with Ambrose Marechal, the late Arch Bishop of Baltimore, who was then pro fessor of Theology in the Seminary in that city. The piety of his youth inclined his mind to the sacerdotal state, and he commenced the study of divinity under the direction of his learned and pious friend. He distinguished himself by his solid judgment and persevering industry, and his illustrious professor has often been heard to relate the anecdote, that his fellow students would frequently request him to cause the young Englishmen to recite, so much were they taken with the elegance of his diction, and the perspi cuity of his arguments. In the year 1809 he was ordained priest in the city ol Lyons. After the death of his mother he returned to England, and was employed in the discharge of paro chial duties in the town of Crosby. When Dr. Marechal was elevated to the Arch episcopal see of Baltimore, he wrote to Mi Whit field, earnestly soliciting him to give his assist ance to the flock which Providence had placed under his charge. He complied with the re quest of his former friend, and landed on our shores on the 8th Sept. 1817. He was immedi ately appointed one of the pastors of St. Peters, and performed the duties annexed to that office with zeal and piety. In 1825, by a specal indult he received the degree of Doctot of Divinity from the Court of Rome. At the death of the most Rev. Arch Bishop Marechal, his name was first on the list which was sent to Rome to re ceive the sanction of his holiness, and he was soon after consecrated Arch Bishop of Balti more in the Cathedral in this city. His career in this elevated station was marked with pru dence and zeal. It was through his solicitude that was held the first provincial council, which spread universal satisfaction through the catho lic congregations of this country. His fortune was considerable, and it was generously conse crated to the purposes of religion. The Cathedra experienced his liberality, and the beautiful edi fice of St. James’s in our city is a lasting monu ment of his munificence. Of him may be said, what can be said of few, he entered the career of honors in wealth, and left it poor. Such was Arch Bishop Whitfield: “ he has fought the good fight, he has finished his course, he has kept the faith;” for the rest is left to him a crown of jus tice, which the just Judge will render to him. Balt. Amer. It is with feelings of deep regret we announce the death of Thomas S. Grimke, Esq. of South Carolina. Travelling on last Saturday (11th inst.) from Cincinnati to this city, he was seized with sudden illness in the stage-coach, (his at tack being, it is supposed, of cholera.) and una ble to proceed further, he was left at Anderson’s tavern, twenty-four miles west of Columbus, un der the care of its inmates, where he expired on the following day. It is consoling to remark, that his eyes were not closed solely amidststrangers. His brother, the Hon Judge Grimke, of this State, being in Columbus, to meet him on his arrival, was early enough apprized of the melancholy occurrence to reach the bedside of the deceased on the eve ning of his attack, and thus to alleviate his suf ferings till his last moments. His remains were brought to this city on Monday evening, ac companied by several of our most respectable citizens, and consigned to the silent tomb. In the decease of T. S.

BROOKVILLE ACADEMY. THE Trustees of this Institution, situated in Brookville, Montgomery County, Mary land, about 20 miles from Washington, and 28 from Baltimore and Frederick Cities, deem it proper to inform the public that they have en gaged Nathan C. Brooks, A. M. as Principal of this Academy. Mr. Brooks is a gentleman o most unexceptionable character, of high standf ing as a scientific and classical scholar, and of very considerable experience in the education of youth, having been very advantageously known for some years past as the Principal of Franklin Academy at Reisterstown; and the high reputation which that school attained un der him, is strong evidence of his qualifications for such a station. The central position and convenient distance of Brookville Academy from the cities of Wash ington, Baltimore, and Frederick; its retired si tuation and location in a healthy, moral, and intelligent neighborhood, in which the retail of spiritous liquors is prohibited by an express act of the Legislature, and where there is, conse quently, less danger of the youthful mind beco ming contaminated by the frequent observa tion of vice and immorality; together with the high moral and scientific qualifications of Mr. Brooks, the Board of Trustees flatter themselves will give their Academy claims upon public pa tronage which are surpassed by none, and per haps equalled by very few, similar institutions in the State. Mr. Brooks will enter upon his duties in the Academy on the 8th September next, and will be assisted by three gentlemen well qualified to instruct the pupils in their respective depart ments. The terms for tuition in English, Mathema tics, and Ancient Languages, Board, Washing, Rent, and Fuel, 330 374 cents per quarter. The modern languages are 86 per quarter each. No money will be required in advance, 4or either board or tuition; but respectable references must be given to the President of the Board of Trustees, on application for admission. For a more detailed statement of the course of studies, regulations, &c. of this Institution, the Board will refer the public to the accompa nying prospectus of the Institutibn. HENRY HOWARD. M. D.
