On the same liench with Sir Robert Peel is (tit old peiitletnnn, whoso extreme elrvlinrea in ilrcrs n fTiirtld a striking contrast to the personal nppcr) ranee of the prim Premier. The individ al referred to is over Ci yearsofnge. His face is wrinkled, and of the color of the parchment over which he lias pored for vo many years. His eyes are lip-lit, and Inrrre, unci are deeply set beneath a pair of light carved eyebrows. Ilia nose is somewhat beak-like, and the month stern, and obstinrtte in expression. But the dress of the mail is more remarkable than the weircr. An old rusty black cot envelopes his chest, which in deep ind broad. Round his neck is dinoy white neck-clnth. .

It is Sir Chasm Vktiieki:i.l, formerly Attdhmcv Ckmorai,, and now Recorder ol Bristol. A singular personoj.'e is he, obstinate to the last degree, but very learned in Ins profession. His absence of mind ii lemarkuble, ntid bin powers of digestion c nnrmoiis. A an instance nf the former take the frtllowinrr .-Sir Chat les recently married a lady much younger than himself. After the ceremony had been concluded, he proceeded lo his rhambr rs, in the Temple, and there an in tricate cause so absorbed hi attention that he flirirnt all about his bride and, according to his old custom, went to bed in his bachelor apart ments, as tiHinl. In the interim rrreat anxiety was caused in the wedrlinfj circle, respertioi; Sir Charles' whereabouts. Evening came, hut no bridegroom, and il wns not until Intc in the 1 wninjj that some one, acquainted with his ee centric habits, suprrested Unit he might be at his chambers. Thither messengers were sent, who knocked tip Sir Charles, who had actually hr gotten that a bride awaited him at home. This story litis been told, I believe, of some others; but Sir Charles Wcthcroll was the mil Sininu Pure. The part which this gentleman tiKik iu the debates on Catholic Emancipation, will not soon be forgotten. Nor will the great riots in Rristol a few years since, be iinromc mbered by those who w tnessed or heard nflhent, and with which Sir Charles Wotherell was so intimately connected.

Jl happened or, one occasion, Ittat Shiel had prepared one uf hi most brilliant speeches for AMERICAN. delivery, and, having carefully committed it to memory' he forwarded the manuscript to the efTice of the Morning , for publication iu the next day' journal, with the other speeches of the expected debate. Contrary to all expec tation, that particular part of the subject to be di-cusfli.il which Mr. Shijl's speech boro refer ence to, was not mooted, and consequently it was not delivered. Owing to some mismanage ment, notice was not taken of the omission at the office of the journal, no reporter from which allended, and the next morning the Morning - had four mortal columns of a speech printed, but which find never been delivered. There were interpolated with il. ''Cheers'' "great cheering, from all parts of the house" "hear bear's," and "prolonged applause," Sec. &.C., which had a droll ett'ect enough ; and the matter was not mended by a long eulogistic "lender," fiom the Editor, who characterized Mr. Shicl's speech as oris of the most brilliant specimens of orti lory which hud ever been deli vered within tho walls of St. Stephen's. All lyotulon not only tittered, but burst into one trrenl and general gufl'aw. Shiel never forgave the care'fssncss but he ned rot have grieved so much nlmut the exposure, for he is not tho on ly one who reports his own speeches. When I. was staying it Sh.mclian'a Hotel, Watcil'onf, some year since, I had the pleasure ot spending an evening with Mr. Shiel, who wns quartering at the same house. His conver sational powers were great, and bo nave quite a series of short lively sketches of some nf his Irish contemporaries. I must confess that, uter hear ing what he said of O'Conncll, I was somewhat surprised to read his speech in favor ol theA Ifitalor, in Dublin, not lone since, bu', perhaps, it is not so much to bo wondered at, when we consider that he is a Ilirrister, and consequently that it is his occasional vocation.

This cliff fronts partly on a small stream named Bill Creek. The top nf the cavern is about ten feet from the top of the cliff. In a warm day a dark stream of bees may be con stantly seen winding out Irom the cavern liko a long dark wreath of smoke. This stream often appears one or two feet in diameter near the cliff' and gradually spreads out like a fan, grow ing thinner and thinner at a distance from the cavern, until it dirappears. .The number of bees in this cavern must be incalculably great pro bably greater than the number in a thousand or ten thousand ordinary hives. The oldest set tlers say that Ihe hivu was there when they firrt arrived in the country ; and it is quite prubable that it existed in the. same slate many years previous to the settlement of the country. The bees, il is said, never swarmed, and il is not improbable that the hivo has continued for more than a century fo increase year after year, in the same ratio that other swarms increase. The c&ve appears to extend hack many rods intotha ledge, and probably has many lateral chambers. The Bee, doubtless, occupy many of these la teral chambers, and il is not improbable that new swarms annually find new chambers to oc cupy, and thus they are prevented from going oft to a distance in search of hives. Sonic of the neighboring settlers have repeatedly, by blasting the rocks, opened a pasmge into some of these chambers, and procured, by this means, many hundred Ihs of honey. litt tho main de positee are si.'itated too deep in the ledge to be reached without great difficulty and perhaps danger. A company was formed at Austria, a few yonr since, for the purpose of exploring the robin and removing the honey; but some outward event prevented the accomplishment or the undertaking. It was estimated that there are many tons of bnney and wax in Ibis im rnensr hive, and if its trf anres could be cr.tract ed n-aililv, they would doubtless be found for mom valuable than the contents of any silver or 11 iW mine, that adventurers have been seek- ,. ,1 , ..

Thin seed produced this year thirty-two plants, ha ving from 10 to 'JS stems and ears each; the s vcroge number of ears wast 10 f ihe average weight of each plant IJ ounce. An arm pf land would Contain, at six inches distance, 14,-2-10 plant?, the produce 3 LOW oz., or nearly 19,CI;0 lbs;. 5'23 bttshe!.--, or 10 quarters per s crc. The expense of dibbing would be moro than saved by the diminished quantity of scel required. I do not mean lo state that such a rcsul t would obla;n upon a lsrge scale ; but I think it is worthy of a trial, when we know that the a verage produce is only quarters per acre, and lhat it is possible to grow FORTY ; it will be allowed there is ample scopo for improve ment. Try a breadth in your fields an inch ami a half deep ; put one grain, and OA 12 only, in each hole plant it at six or eight inches dis tant be sure to plaut good seed get as much produce as you can, but GO FOil FORTY QUARTERS PER ACRE. A Chnrcoal Road, The process of mn king such a road is descri bed dy a writer in the Cleveland Herald as fol lows: 'Tinibcr, from six to eight inches through, is cut twenty-four feet long, and piled up length wise in the centre of the road about five feet high, being nine fjet wide at the bottom and two at the top, and then covered with straw and earth in the manner of coalpits. The carlh re quired to cover the pile, taken from either sidi leaves two good-si?.cd ditches, and the timber, although not split, is easily charred, and when charred, (ho earth ia removed to the side of fiio ditches the ccsl rakad down to a width of filter :i 1 feel, leavir..? it two feet thick at the centre act j one at , anj ,h(J j( po ,c,e,,. 1 ,.,... i A road nf this htnd no-v bring mnr'r in t!i.- I , , 'cotton V o,-vl swam-, tior H f", '. i '.! 1 ,, , ' 1 rrr, t. l.rffnt , It rt ........... t . .. , . 1.1 ..,. grin.

Cravnfa, A correspondent of the New Haven Herald writes thus sensibly nn this interesting theme : "High, tight white cravats, such as arc worn by clergymen, are said to have some agency in producing bronchitis, which i3 ro common tj gentlemen of that profession. They sweit the throat, relax the capillaries, weaken the organ . of speech, so .is to produce a greater wear tc I those organs when in exercise, lead to fre- I qucntly taking cold in the parts, and repn.'ss. the circulation. Black silk cravats, when not worn tightly, have none of these objection, in deed the electrical nnd other properties of th" fabric, or the color, or both, arc found to greatly beneficial in diseases of the throat.
