Mr. Redsecker had no knowledge ot anv ot the name ot (*ib- i son then in the neighborhood, and it was some ; time before it came to the ears ot any ot the heirs, and when they inquired of Mr. Redsecker about it he could only tell that such a letter had come to him from Virginia, but could'nt tell w hat Post Office it came from nor the Postmas- ! ter’s name that wrote it.

SPIRITUALISM IX BOSTON. Some of the Bostonians carry their faith in Spiritualism to a great extent. A gentleman whose wife was in the practice of attending the “Circles,” insisted that she should leave off such nonsense. The “medium*” took revenge on his skepticism, by pretending that the spirit of the lady’s father wrote, that her husband had a dagger in the chamber, and at a certain hour would take her life, if not prevented, and advised that three watchmen should be sent for without delay. The advice was acted on, and three watchmen were placed outside of the chamber, one of them armed with an axe, ready to burst the door open at the slightest cry for help. Hearing voices outside, the husband opened the door, and inquired the cause of such an assemblage. Explanations were given. To allay their fears, he invited the watchmen to enter the chamber and search every part of it. which they did, but found neither pistol nordagger. The spirits, however, insisted that murderous weapons were concealed, and urged the watch men to remain. Unable to reason with the spiritualists, and unwilling to create more excitement, the husband permitted his wile to rejoin the mediums in another room, while he retired to rest. _. LUDICROUS MISCHIEF. The following “droll incident” is related in the Knickerbocker, as having occurred to a lady of respectability in Brooklyn: “'1 he lady has a charming little boy, very ohserv ing, imitative and active. The child had noticed the postman constantly leaving letters, and moving off quick: and he thought it would be a very tine thing to become a postman. S>be one day went to his mamma’s eserutoire, and took out some twenty-five or thirty letters, tied them up and sallied forth, leaving one at every house, and movingoffquick. The lady was rather surprised when her next neighbor brought her an open letter, which she said somebody had left at her door; but what was her astonishment when visiting hour arrived, for another, and another, and another lady coming in, all bringing open letters, until her ample parlor was completely crammed. luu need not uoubt the mirth anu iun giew fast and furious, as each lady entered with the same tale, and the little postman was elat ed beyond measure to find what a capital postman he was: hut the best ot the tun was, that every lady, one and all, asserted she had not unfolded or read one word/ A MONUMENT TO WATT. A somewhat curious proposition is now being agitated in Scotland. It is proposed to build in Greenock agreat pile or cairn of stones gathered from all parts ofthew'orld, in honor of James Watt, the mechanic who first applied steam to the working of machinery. The pile is to be erected in a new cemetery on the western front of a high hill, which commands a magnificent view of the river Clyde, and ot the neighboring country for many miles around. On the summit of this elevation a spot has. from the first laying oat of the grounds, been reserved its a suitable site tor a monument to \\ att, of a more substantial and striking description than any tribute \<*t erected to his memory. • HON.
