XI Now the remedy for the hard service that is laid upon the human race con sists partly in lessening the number of unproductive classes, and increasing t lie workers and thinkers, as well as giving up the work of Ostentation and Polly and Sin. It has been asserted on high authority, that if all men and wo men capable of work would toil dilN gently but two hours out of the twenty four, the work of the world would be done, and all would be as comfortably fed and clothed, as well educated and housed, and provided for in general, as they now are, even admitting they all went to sleep the other twenty-two hours of the day and night. If this were done, we should hear nothing of the sickness of scdetitcrv and rich men. Kxereisc for the sake of health would be heard of no more. One class would not be crushed, by hard work, nor ano ther oppressed by indolence, and con demned, in order to resist the just ven geancc nature takes on them, to con sume nauseous drugs, and resort to ar tificial and hateful methods to preserve a life that is not worth keeping, because it is useless and ignominious ! Now men may work at least three or four times this necessary amount each day, and yet find their labor a pastime, a dignity and a blessing, and find likewise abundant time for study, for social in tercourse, and recreation. Then if a man's calling were to think and write, he would not injure the world by even excessive devotion to his favorite pur suit, for the general burthen would still be slight.

The world has always been partial to oppressors. Many men fancy them Ives an ornament tb the world, whose esence in it is a disgrace and a bur en to the ground they stand on. The in who docs nothing for the race but s at his ease, and fares daintly, be use wealth has fallen into his hands, a burthen to the world.

This gigantic wonder of the animal creation has at length arrived in our city, and w ill be exhibited at the Wash ington Hall so soon as the bones,' w Inch are now contained in fourteen large boxes, can be put together. This, the proprietor informs us, will be near the close of the week. In the meantime we will endeavor, from data furnished us in a printed description of the skeleton, to give readers some idea of this mighty wonder of creation; as such it may well be regarded, for in comparison with the Missourium, mammoths, mas todons, and all other hitherto discover ed monsters arc but small affairs. We have already given some account of this animal, and ol the circumstances under which it was exhumed ; we have now before us nn accurate measure ment of the principal bones of the ske leton, which w ill serve to give a belter idea of its immense size and huge proportions. The skeleton measures .12 feet in lemith and 16 in height. The head measures, from the tip of the nose to the spine- of the neck, feet. From the edcrcof the upper lip, measuring along the roof of the mouth, to the socket ol the eve is 3 feet ; from the lower edge of the upper lip to the first edge of the front tooth, -!0 inches. Kach jaw has four teeth, and the upper jaw has be sides two enormous tusks. The teeth are each four inches broad. The nose projects 15 inches over the lower jaw. The tusks arc ten feet long, exclusive of 1 foot and 3 inches, which forms the r..t ?i.wl U Imried in the skull. Ihe ri-rlit tusk was found firm in the bead and remained fixed in its socket during its excavation, and its transportation to St. Louis, w hich fortunate circumstance enabled us to know the exact position and situation which the tusks occupies in the head of the animal during its life Ttir l..ndj- ol'tlte tVliIle House The son of Mr. Tyler, now President of the United States, we believe first met his wife, then Miss Cooper, in our city.

An origi ns! place was got up, in which It ice was persua ded to da the character oft negro, much against his will. He consented only under the stipulation that ho shoirid have permis..ion to introduce a ne gro song of his own. Itice was fond of riding, and ftequcnily visited a stable in town where there was a very droll negro hos'ler, who used to dance grotesquely and sing fingiiirtit-i of an old song about one Jim Crow. Very htt'e dilficulty Was found in transforming the hostler in'o a tutor, and in half an hrv.ir 1 co was master of symph.ny, ruclo I v. and all the stop.., wold-t, and drollery of The Ijr-lariud and inesinlihie Jim Crow ! The evening for the debut of the new play camo on, an! t e' cr did Keniltle or Talma atuJy more in tensely over the eff ct of costume than tliu Kico in dressing for his negro part on this occasion. He had easily contrived to throw tog .'ther a few verses with witty local allusions and lo highten the extra vagance of the dance to its greatest extent of gro tefqu? nh -utility. The play commenced and Rice went ou, dragging heavily and laroily Tiice him self failing to rtir up the drowsy audience wi:h !ttf lumpily written negro part, until Ute thud act w h ie the s ing came in.

Vut the new song continued to call down ex pressions of pleasure that could not by any m:ans he mi-t iken, and at its conclusion the man igcr bounced out of the green room, and down to "P.
