Curious Facts.—The mite makes 500 steps
in a second, or 30.000 in a minute. Allowing
the horse to move at an equal ratio, he would
perform 1022 miles an hour. The journey
from London to Birmingham would then oc
cupy but six minutes and a fraction. There is
something which may, in some measure, rival
the above in the celerity of its motion, and is
itseif unrivalled in strength in proportion to its
size. Although it is generally disliked, and
has not a very fair reputation, yet to the eye
Of the naturalist, it is rather a pleasing, and in
teresting object. Its form, as examined by the
microscope, is extremely elegant, and has an
appearance as if clad in a coat of mail. It has
a small head, with large eyes, a clean and
bright body, beset at eachsegmenv with nu
merous sharp and shining bristlt— All its
motions indicate agility and sprightli
ness, and its muscular power is so extraordi
ry, as justly to excite out astonishment, indeed
we know no other animat whose strength can
be put in competition with (its name must
come out at last) that of a common flea; for on
a moderate computation it can leap to a dis
tance at 200 times the length of its own bo
dy. A flea will drag after it a chain 100 times
heavier than itself, and will eat ten times
its own weight of provisions in a day. Mr*
Boverich, an ingenious watchmaker, who,
some years ago, lived in the Strand, London,:
exhibited to the public a little ivory chaise i
with four wheels, and all its proper apparatus j
and a man sitting on the box, allot which;
were drawnhy a single flea. He made a small J
landau, which opened and shut by springs,with i
G horses harnessed to it- a coachman sitting on
the box, and a dog silting between his legs, 4
persons in the carriage 2 footmen behind it and
a postillion riding on one of the fore horses,
wliich was also drawn easily along by a flea,
fie likewise had a chain of brass, about two !

atone end and a padlock and key at the
other, which the flea drew very nimbly along.
Something of the same kind is now exhibiting
in London —Edinburg Encyclopedia.
The Goths have made an earlier inroad into
the western states than we had apprehended
—at least we had hoped that Vandalism
would have been kept a little longer from the
work of destruction. It seems, however,
that, what few remnants we hare of an
American antiquity are to share the common
fate. One of those large Indian mounds, so
remarkable in our country has lately been
demolished and levelled with the adjacent
grounds, near Galliopolls, Ohio. A lew hu
man bone3 are said to have been found at the
bottom, and the Utilitarian gentleman engag
ed in the desecration ought by all means to
“sell them for what they will fetch” to some
manufacturer of manure. It is well for the
Cheops Pyramid that it does not stand upon
premises belonging to the “enlighted citizens
of the United States.** They would sell the
stones to the highest bidder, t.» a dead cer
tainty. And he would make use of them for
a mill dam.—N. Y. Conr.
StLLlMS ExtraCi .—“It is h terrible thought
at an hour like this, to remember that nothing
can he forgotten. I have somewhere read
that not an oath is uttered that does not con
tinue to vibrate through all time, in the wide
spreading currents of sound—not a prayer
lisped, that its record is not a Iso to be found
stamped on the laws of nature by the indeli
ble seal of the Almighty’s will.—Cooper’s
“Two Admirals.”
Genius not impaired by Age —“It is worthy
of notice,” says D. Israeli, “that some of the
mostiively productions of several great wri
ters, have been the work of their maturest
age. Johnson surpassed all his preceding la
borsrin his last work, the popular Lives of the
Poets. The Canterbury Tales of Chaucer,
were elusions or his advanced age; and the
congenial versions of Dryden were thrown out
in the luxunence of his latter days. Milton
might have been classed among the minor
poets* had be net lived tc he old enough to be
come one of the most sublime. Let it be a
source of consolation, if not of triumph, in a
long studious life of true genius, to know that
the imagination may not decline with the vi
gor cl the frame which holds it. There iias
been no old age lor many men of genius.
