TUESDAY EVENING, SEPT. 14 John C. Breckinridge's Will.?The will of John C. Breckinridge has been presented for probate aod filed. The 1'ollowiog is the first part of the will: I, John 0. Breckinridge, of the city of Lexington aDd State of Kentucky, being of dis posing mind, do make this my last will and testament: Fiist?After the payment of my debts, which are few and small, aod the expenses of a modest funeral, I direct that my wife, Mary C. Breck inridge, shall receive out of the proceeds of my estate, $10,000, which is not to be charged as part of her distributable portion of my estate; and in like manner u?y dauzhter is to 10 receive $3,000, but this sum is given for cocvouience as an advancement, and is to be ch;?r<ed as a part of ber distril utable portion. These sums are to be paid as soon as may be without a sac rifice of property. Second?I leave to my wife all the household and kitchen furniture, except the furniture in the room of my daughter Frances, which is to be hers absolutely, and neither of tbem is to be charged in respect to these items. Third?These articles, whose value lies chief ly in the associations connected with them, as family pieces, pictures, military relics, and the like. 1 leave with my wife for distribution be tween herself and the children, and this 1 trust entirely to her discretion and affection. The will distributes the remainder of the property equally between his wife and his chil dren. liis wife, James B. Beck and John K. Vilcy are appointed executors. A Frenchman learning the English language complained of the irregularity of the verb "to go," present tense of which some wag had writ ten out for him as follows: "I go; thou startest; he departs;we make tracks, you cut stick*?; they absquatulate or sktdiadle." THE MINERAL BUREAU. The Bureau juf.t established at Alexandria by the railroad companies to aid in developing the iron and other mineral resources of Virginia and promoting home metallurgical industries, -will be open for the receipt aod public display ot samples on and after the first of Septembor next. ITor the guidance of those who wish to avail themselves of the advantages which this insti tution offers, the following items of information arc given: .First: It will not undertake to negotiate the purchase or sale of any lands or minerals. In its operation it will be confined mainly to dis playing the samples sent to it, and publishing all important information in relation thereto ?ommunicated by the senders, acting in the mat ter as a gratuitous exhibitor and advertiser to the host of its ability., fur public benefit. Second: Each sample intended for display should be as near as possible a truthful averago of the mass of mineral from which it was taken, and in quantity sufficient to fill a box measuring on the outside just one cubic foot. The box should be a Bightiy one, smooth on the outside, and fit to be placed on exhibition. Its lid should he screwed on, not nailed, to avoid breaking or defacing in opening. Third : Each box should be distinctly marked on its lid thus: (ORK FOR EXH BITI'N.) Virginia Mineral Bureau, Alexandria, Va. And if delivered to the railroad agent at any of the established way stations, or to the baggage master on board of any passenger train on the Washington City, Virginia Midland and Great Southern Railroad, or any road connecting therewith, will be transported directly to its des tination free of charge, out without any liabili ty for damage, loss or delay. All the roads in tbe State, it is believed, will immediately unite in this arrangement. When any box is so sent the Bureau snould be notified thereof through the mail by the seuder. Fourth: Within each box, and securely en veloped to prevent soiling there should be a statement, written in a distinct, bold hand, set ting forth [first] the name and post< Ifice address of trie sender, [second] the exact location of the land from which the mineral was taken, and the probable quantity of mineral upon it, or the thickuess, length and breadth of the deposit?, so far as ascertained, and [third] whether or not the property is offered for sale, and if so offered, such other information as a person desiring to purchase would be apt to ask lor. Filth: Each box, as it is received, will be opened, labeled and placed for display in its ap propriate position in the exhibition chamber, and the written statement found within it will be inscribed in a general record book, which will always be open to the public for reference. An appropriate notice of each sample will be at once handed for publication to eachol the news papers'in Alexandria. fcixtb: The exhibition chamber will bn kept open to tbe public daily, Sundays and public holidays excepted, from 8 a. m. to 5 p. m. It will be the duty of the attendant to be courteous to visitors, and afford them every opportunity to inspect the samples on display and obtaiu whatever inlormation in relation thereto of which the Bureau has possession. It will also be his duty to carefully protect the samples Jrom being broken, mutilated or removed; but this rule will not appiy to prevent limited aver age portions from being taken, according to special diiections, for analysis.
