fjT M. Daguerre, the celebtated inventor
of tho daguerreotype, died a few weeks
since at Petit-Brie-sur-Marne, asmoll village
near Paris, in the 53d year of his age. He
commenced life as a scene painter for the
Parisian theatres, and distinguished himself
in his 'inc. He afterwards founded the di
orama in that city, which established him
firmly as an artist, but effected his pecuniary
ruin. He then gave himself up to the so
lution of the great problem of fixing the
images of the camera ob&cura. In this he
succeeded and gave to the world the art
known as the Drguerreotype. His funeral
was attended by nearly all the artists at

'Mr. Phillips assured them that there was
no dunger, as he had perfect command over
the flames; at the time he requested the
company to observe that he had purposely
arranged that every disadvantage should be
against him. The house was full of com
bustible material the whoie building was

they would observe that the commencement
of the full force of the fire would be almost
immediate, and without any of the gradual
advances which were usual in almost all

them to take nolo that the fury of the flames

Sir John Franklin.-The Newburypon
Herald thinks that solicitude for the fate of
the bold searchers of Franklin is more ap
propriate at the present time, all hope ol
Franklin being found alive must be vain.
It says:
"Six or eight vessels have wintered in
some o(he bays or inlets which empty in
to Baffin's Bay, beyond the point where the
whale ships ever venture, and it wil be well
if other expeditions are not required to re
cover some of them. The American ves
sels, we fear, were not sufficiently well ap
pointed for the undertaking, and we fear
much for the salety of their crews. We
know nothing on earth which we should not
rather encounter than a winter in the ice on
board a small vessel, above latitude 70. It
requires n greater amount of courageous ef
fort than to lead a squadron on the bloodiest
field or battle the earth ever saw, for that
trial would be quickly over ; and there might
be excitement enough in the contest to cirry
one through it fearlessly. It is probable
that Franklin's vessels, which have now
been absent more than six years, succeeded
in the first or second season, in reaching
some point of the Arctic sea. which is sel
dom open, perhaps not oftener than once in
a generation, and here frozen in, where they
remained until they all perished by cold or
starvation. Not unlikely the vessel and
bodies of the men may be found hereafter,
and many thrilling, interesting memorials
found recorded in their journals by their side,
which the last of them no doubt kept as long
as me remained.
Gen. Cass. Charles Reemelin. of Cin
cinnati, in a sketch of a northern tour which
he is making, writes to the Enquirer of that
city, that Gen. Cass will be the L.F. nomi

"Gen. Cass cannot, in New York. New

A Hot Spring. One of the members of
the Mexican Boundary Commission, writing
irom Santa Km, New. Mexico, to the'-Pro-
tidence Journal, thus describes a
discovered on the 2d May:
" Having heard of a remarkable 'hot
spring a few miles from our road, all that
were mounted determined to visit it, and on
leaving camp, struck off into the plain in a
straight direction for it. A ride of about five
miles brought us to the spoi, which wai in
dicated by a hill about 600 feet in circum
ference at its base, and about 30 or 40 feet
high, which was formed entirely by the de
posits made by the waters of the spring.
On the summit of this hill was a basin 20
feet in diameter, containing the hoi water,
the surface of which was six or eight feet
below the top of the basin. The tempera
ture of the water was found to be 125 de
grees, and of course so hot that ihe hand
could not -be borne in it. Dr. Webb col
lected the gas which bubbled up from tbe
bottom, and found it to be neither hvdrogen
or carbonic acid gas. His conclusion,
therefore, was thai ii wis purely atmosphe
ric air. The water was nlensani m ,1m
taste, and would be pnlaiable if cooled. At
one side of die hid a miuiII spring burst out,
and at a short distance Where it collected in
a pool, the 'water w.is cool enough to bathe
in, but even then it was Hterally a hot bath."
(KT The poiatoc rot tuts commenced in
Maine and Wisconsin, and is becoming very
severe in the vicinity 'of Cazenovin, New

Tribune gives his theory of the causo as
"Tho mischief is all done by on insect.
Let any person go and look ot the loaves
which begin to decay, ond he will find un
derside oi' the leaves plenty of small green

Militia, Army, and Navy. The en

2,006 068 men or an average of over 60.000
to each State. Pennsylvania hat tho largest
number, 276.070. and Delaware the smal

ent established by law, should be 12,326, of.
fleers and pnvatts, though from desertions,
sickness, dc, the effective force is supposed
to be less than 9,000 men in all. The navy

I have been but two days wholly tmonit
(he Germans, but 1 ' had previously met
many of them in England, Italy and Switz
erland. They are seen to the best advan
tage at home. Their uniform courtesy
(save in the detestable habft of smoking
where others cannot help being annoyed by
their fumes) indicates not merely good na
ture but genuine kindness of heart. . f have
not seen a Oerman outselling or scolding
any where , in Europo. The deference of
members of the sarnie family to etch other's
happiness hi cars, hotels and steamboats,
has that quiet, unconscious manner which
distinguishes a habit from holiday orna
ment. The entire absence of pretence, of
statellnesa, ol a desire to be thought a per
sonage and not a mere person, is scarcely
more universal n Switzerland than here.
But in fact I have found Aristocracy a chron

France, there is absolutely nothing of it ;
there are monarchists in that country mon

from policy, ot from class interest but of
aristocracy scarcely a trace is left. Your

Nos. I and 6, raised himself majestically
into the air, in a perpendicular line. He
was furnished with n long packed-thread of
about one nundred metres, at the end ol
which he had tied a small leaden weight;
and in two iniautcs he was three hundred
feet above our heads.
Nothing could depict the astonishment,
or rather ihe terror, of all of us; i!iou shouts
and bravos broke forth, which were abso
lutely frantic. M. d'Arville, by thi- aid of
a speaking trumpet, then called to us, "I'm
going to make an oblique flight, and then a
continuous one." When, by a change of
the pedals, he directed himsell just as he
wished, without aid and eppuremly without
tho leasi danger.
After having run over a space about as
large as the Champ-de-Mors. M.uArville
let himself down at our feel, taking no more
time in .the descent than a sheet of paper
would take, it thrown Irom a window on i

The Weather and Cropjs. The cen
tral and eastern portions of the State have
been ol late, suffering from drouth, which
has injured tho corn crop seriously in some
places. The ravages of the poiatoe bug are
quito extensive. I he general report is that
the poiatoe crop promises wejl. We hear
of rot occasionally, but thus far the com
plaint is not general ; in many localities
they are pronounced exceedingly fine, and
it will be on era when we can get back to
the good old time, of sound potatoes. The
wheat crop in some portions of the west is
evidently a failure, especially in portions of
Indiana ami Wisconsin, j-run Is scarce,
except along the lake shore, and even there
apples are not very plenty. We hope ihey
will allow us to look upon some of their
good things at the State Fair Ohio Cul.
