A bottle of Egyptian perfume, 2000 years old, is preserved at the Alnwick Mu seum, Englaud, and still retains its odor. A Hard Case, And a Man with no Conscience. A negro woman named Rebecca Garret, and her sis children, were taken Irom Ualtimore, Maryland, about 18 months since, by rhomas Anderson, of Howard Uistrict, ho claimed ihem as slaves. The case was tried, and the court gave a verdict against Anderson. He carried it lo the Court of Appeals, which nas reversed tne judgment of the County Court, on the ground that the law requires tne issue oi Ireedom to be tried where the master re sides. The case will now be disposed oi bv the Howard District Court, where Mr. Anderson desired it to be tried irom tne first. It appears that the woman had been allowed by her mistress, ihe mother of Mrs. Anderson, to live as a free woman in Baltimore, where she married and resi ded for 21 years, and where the children she has were born lo her by a free father. There is no doubt that her mistress inten ded shehould be for ever free; and this o!an of raking up such old claims against the freedom of a whole family is heartless in the extreme. The unfortunate Garret family still remain in ihe custody of Mr. Anderson, who has given a bond ol $5, 000 to produce them when required.

Mr. Fillmore was married in 1828 to Abigail Powers, the youngest child of Rev. Lemuel Powers. She is still living, and is described as a lady of great worth, modest and unobtrusive in her deportment, and highly esteemed for her many virtues. lhey have but two children. The oldest, a son, is a young man of about twenty-one years of age, who has just entered upon the practice of law in Buffalo; He is said She is about eighteen years ofage. Her ac- j complishments are many and varied, and : her independent, self-reliant character is exhibited in the fact thai she is now.or was very recently, a teacher in one of the free public schools in Buffalo. She is one of the wo.nen of whom the Itepubltc has much more reason to be proad than of all the gay, gaudy women of fashion, who often show as much scorn for school teachers as they do ignorance of the true qualities of a re publican charac'.er.

This produced a movement in tfce 'roop. Command were issued, and fa- gue parties were detailed, and marched to the Iront. Meanwhile several ol the comadrejns engineers, no doubt ran nlong the bank, examining ihe trees on both sides of the arrovo. At length they all collected around a tall cotton wood.that grew over the narrow. est part of the stream, and 20 or 30 ol them scampered up its trunk. On reach ing a high point, the foremost a strong', fellow ran out upon a limb, and, takiog several turns of his tail around it, slipped off, and hung head downwards. The next on the limb, also a stout one.climbed down the body of the first, and whipping" bis tail tightly around the neck and forearm of the latter.dropped off in his turn, and hung head down. The third repeated this man oeuvre upon the second, and the fourth upon the third, and so on, until the las', one upon the string rested his forepaws upon l,ier,ou,1d. fc.-uua.iy increased, ihe low- ermost monkey striking his hands violently on the tarth as he passed the tangent of the oscillating curve. Several others up- . on the limbs above aided the movement . This continued until the moukey at ihe end of the chatu was thrown among the branches of a tree on the opposite bank. Hure, after two or three vibrations, h . clutched a limb, and held fast. This movement was executed adroitly, just at the culminating poiut of the oscillation, irfi order to save the intermediate links from the violence of a too sudden jerk ! The chain was now fast both ends, form- ing a complete suspension bridge, oVer which the whole troop, to the number of four or five hundred passed with the rapid ity ol thought. i It was one of the most comical sights I ever beheld, to witness the quizzical ex pression of countenances along that living; chain ! The iroop was now on the other sile. but how were the animals forming the bridge to gH themselves overt This was a question that suggested itself. Miiniiesv ly, by number one letting go his tail. But then the point iTuppui on ihe other side was much lower down, and number one iih h:ilf-a-dozeu of his neighbs, would" lie dashed against the opposite bank, or soused into the water. Here, then, was a ploMeoi, and we wai- ed with some enriosity for its solution. It was soon solved. A monKey was now seen attaching his tail to the lowest on the liridge, another girded him in a similar manner, and another, anif so oi, until a lozen more were added to the string. These last were all powerful fellows ; nni runn- ng up to a high limb, they lifted thebridga nto a position almost horizontal. Then a scream from the lasft monkey of he new formation warned the tail end ll.at til was ready ; and fhe next moment the whole chain was swung over, and landed safely on ihe opposite bank, 'the lower nost link now dropped ol! like a melting andle, while the higher ones leaped to' he branches and came down by the Irunlc. fhe whole troop then scampered off into he cbapparal and disappeared.
