MIRACULOUS ESCAPE.
Tho Kanawha Republican narrates the fol -
I lowing:
j “On the 10th insfc., fcwo gentlemen were en
! deavoring to cross the Kaoawha river, in a
I skiff, about one mile above the Kanawha Falls,
i Being strangers, and not knowing the charuo
j ter of the river, they did not have oars, aud
1 weroonly provided with an ordinary pole.—
They soon reached deep water, where bottom
could not be obtained, and rapidly drifted to
' wards the Falls, aud apparently to eternity,
• as no human being or animal, has ever beeu
I known to go over the Falls and escape w ith
| life. The men, despairing, sat down in the
skiff, and as they approached the brink of
the cataract, the boat took, fortunately, a
course with her bow down stream, and de
scended the first fall in safety; the second
pitch she plunged under the water in the
boiling whirlpool, which is at the foot.
| One of the gentlemen, named J. U. F.
Mosely, of Amherst county, together witii
his favorite dog (“Taylor," also in the skiff
with them,) came to the surface about fifty
yards below, and saved themselves by cling
ing to the skiff, which had turned bottom up
wards, from which they wero taken some dis
tance below.
The other, James T. Christian , of Ap
pomattox county, did not make his appear
ance above the water for the distance ot a
hundred yards, where hew'as rescued in tho
last struggles of life, by two young, men,
lliraui Johnson and Franklin Simms, who
went to his relief in a skiff, which Mr.
Henry Rigg had hurriedly got ready for tho
purpose at the time of their descent over the
Falls. This is a feat hitherto unknown in
the navigation of the Kanawha."
FRENCH MANUFACTURERS.
Professor Mapes says, that nine-tenths of
the olivo oil in this country is manufactured
in France from American lard oil. It is pu
rified by sal soda, and is equal to olive oil
for tho table or for other purposes. The
French seem to be a good length ahead of us
in all that relates to delicacies for the tablo.
We have plenty of sardines on our coasts,
but it requires French hands to put them in
boxes.
A letter from Vienna, in tho Cologne Ga
zette, 6ays.
“Count I’aul Esterhazy, whose family
wealth has become a proverb, and who is to
reprosent Austria at the Russiau coronation
is making the most magnificent preparations
for the ceremony, in addition to his crowd
of servants and carriages covered with gold
and silver, the Prince's own costume w ill ex
cite astonishment. It is completely covered
with precious stones, estimated at several
millions of dories. In the buckle or orna

is a diamond worth .‘f00,000 florins.”
A TTEMlUN, FARMERS OF VIRGINIA*
GL AXO EXCELLED.—The umlersign
ea falls the attention ot wheat growers of \ ir
ginia, to ~1)E HUtiGS SUPER PHOSPHATE
DE LIVE, acknowledged, by those who have
tried it for the past three years, on Fall and
Spring crops, as the most valuaiilk psktilizak
k.hown. as it not only grows as large crops as the
best No. I Peruvian Guano, but improves the
land, w hich Guanodoes not. An application of
200 to 300 fos. per acre, w ill produce -To to 40
bushels ol wheat, and its beneficial effects are
seen on the land three and lour yearsatterwards.
Every lot received, is thoroughly inspected
and analyzed by Dr. David Steuurt, Chemist to
Maryland Agricultural Society, who rejects all
that does not come up lo the lixed standard,
thereby guarantying to the farmer a uniformity
not to be found in Guano, or any other manure,
and says, in his report to us *1 do not think
there is a compound now offered lor sale, that
contains as large a proportion of phosphates,
combined w ith the same quantity o! ammonia,
aithK”
it compares favorably with Peruvian Guano,
while it must always wcl it nicertainty and dura
btlity. The cargoes ofthis manufacture are ie
markabiy umlorm.
We subjoin a few* of the many testimonials r#»
ceived from well known and reliable gentlemen,
of the efficacy ol “ De Burg' as a yuirk and strung
manure, upon every variety o| soil, tor further
particulars, read American Farmer, August,
1 N.V).
R. H. Dulaney, esq., Fauquier County. Va.,
has used the “De Burg, on his Spring and tail
crops lor the past two yeais, and gives it the de.
tided preference over Peruvian Guano, and has
ordered tons for his wheat this fail.
Thomas J. Rusk, esq., Baltimore County, says.
I applied “De Buig" to my wheat last tall, and
raised a “first rate crop.” I prefer it to Peru
vian Guano.
James CowcJen, esq,. Cecil County, says “My
tenants who used the “De Burg on wheat last
tall eav it id uu i/mmiI sis the Peruvian Guano.’’
1 prefer it. as it is more durable.
R. H. Evans, esq., Howard County, Md.;
says: “The Do Burg has given universal satisfac
tion, I prefer it to Guano. Where ‘De Borg” is
sow n, the effects are as perceptible,as light from
darkness."
S. W. Spencer, esq.. Cashier, Kent County,
Md., says: “1 used the De Burg on my wheat
last fall, and consider it fully equal to the Pe
ruvian Guano. As long as you guarantee its
puritv.and Dr Stewart inspects it, I shall use ii ’’
J. M. Jacob*, esq., Harford County, Md.,
says: “I could see no difference at harvest in the
wheat, between the De Burg and No. 1 Peruvian
Guano.”
Joshua C. Gi-t, esq , Carroll County, Md., has
used De Burg for two years on his wheat crop,
and says: UI prefer it to any Guano I ever need.
It arts exceedingly well on land that has, or has
not been limed.
Wrm. P. L®averton. rsq.. Easton, Talbot Co.,
Md . says: I applied De burg on same quantity
of land, and same rate (lOff j#-r acre as
No. 1 Peruvian Guano. The De Burg wheat
was much superior, the heads and grams much
larger, proving to my mind, its superiority over
Guano—at the same price.
De Burg's No. 1 Ammoniated Super Phos
phate of Lime, contains more fertilizing pro
perties than any Guano, or combinations of
Guanoe*, or other manures know n, and supplies
to the soil all the requisites to grow Wheat.
Kk, Oats, Corn, Tobacco, Ac., a» a proof of
w hich, the quantity and quality of graiq produ
ced, and the greatly increased demand, which is
beyond all precedent in artificial manures.
hi consequence of which many imitations
have been put upon the market, and palmed off
for the genuine. Farmers should be particular
and buy none but * De Burg s No. i Ammonia
ted Super Phosphate of Lime, which is if) bar
