II. Ellsworth. W.L. CO OK, Sheriff. S. Jefferson, Ptffs Attv. Sept. 22, 1855. lf)w5$l.S7 Captain William Allen, of the British na vy, hus published a book, advocating the con vt'iion of the Arabian Desert into an ocean. The author believes that the great valley, ex tending from the southern depression of tlx: Lebanon range to the head of the Gulf of Akaba, the eastern branch of the head of tlie Red Sea, has been once an ocean. It is, in many places, thirteen hundred feet below the level of the Mediterranean, and in it ate sit uated the Dead Sea and the Sea of Tiberias, lie believes that this ocean, being cut off from the Red Sea by the rise of the land ar. the .southern extremity, and being only fed by. the small streams, gradually became dried by solar evaporation. lie. proposes to cut a t iiiial of adequate size from the head of the Gulf of Akaba to the Dead Sea, and another hum ihe Mediterranean, near Mount Curmel, across the plain Esdraeion, to the fissure in the Mountain ran;e of Lebanon. By this melius the Mediterranean would rush in, with a fall of thirteen hundred feet, fill up the valley, aud substitute an ocean of two thous and square miles in extent, lor u. barren, use less desert .'; thus making the navigation to India as short as the. overland route, spread ing fertility over a now arid country, and opening up the fertile regions of Palestine to settlement and cultivation. The concep tion is a magnificent one, but no sufficieH-t survey has been made to determine its prac ticability or its cost. The Grave of Fkankun. Great and wide spread as is the lam" of the "Printer Phi losopher" and proud as the. people of Phila delphia are of their illustrious townsman, we doubt much if one in a hundred of tho present generation of Philadelphia have eve seen his tomb. Thousands pass daily with in a few feet of the spot where his ashes, and those of his wife, repose, without being conscious of the fact, or, if aware of it, un able to obtain a glimpse of the grave. The bones of the lightning-tamer lie within a ve ry short distance of Arch street, in the north west corner of Christ Church grave-yard, at Fifth and Arch streets. As is generally known, the spot is marked by a slab of mar ble, which is almost level with the earth, and which bears the simple inscription,. "Benjamin and Deborah Franklin." If the wall at this point were removed, and a neat iron railing erected in its stead, every passer by would be afforded the gratification of see ing the grave ; a gratification now very diffi cult to obtain. In u Philadelphia newspa per, published in December, 1774, we find the following notice of the death of Mrs. Franklin : " On Monday, th? nineteenth in stant, died, at an advanced age, Mrs. Debo rah Franklin, wife of Dr. Benjamin Frank lin ; and on the Thursday following, her re mains were interred in the Christ Church The announcement of the of Mrs. Franklin was as simple and unostentatious as the slab and its pithy inscription, which marks her final resting place. Philadelphia Bulletin. "Sqiiantum" is the name for a fpecies of fun known only to the Nantucket folks. A party of ladies and gentlemen go to one of their famous watering places, where they fishr dig clams, talk, laugh, sing, dance, play, sail, bathe, eat, and have a good time generally. The food consists principally of chowder, baked clams and fun. No one is admitted to the sacred circle, who will take offence, at a joke, and every one is expected to do his or her part towards creating a general laugh. Any man who speaks of business affairs (except matrimony,) is immediately reproved, and on a second offence publicly chastised. Care is thrown to the wind, pol tics discarded, war ignored, pride humbled, stations leveled, wealth scorned, virtue ex alted, end this is prjunntum."
