Affcutliig Ceremony?Two Youui L.?dl? UklB? (he WUIlc Veil. A novel and imposing ceremony took place ibis week in one of the Roniau Catholic churches of this city, on which occasion two beautiful young ladies took the white veil, and became " Sisters of Mercy," a new religious or der in this country. The church was crowded to overflowing long before the hour appointed for the performances to commence. During a fine voluntary on the organ, the procession en tered in the following order: first walked three very beautiful young ladies, dressed in pure white, the first one carrying a large guilt cross, elevated on a high pole, the other two holding lighted candles in their haivds. Next came fourteen little girls, apparently about six years old, likewise dressed in white, having wreaths of dowers on their heads, and bearing baskets of flowers; then followed six nuns in their usual black dresses and hoods, aud immediate ly after these came the two victims, each at tended by a nun, who is her choseu " mother superior the two young ladies were arrayed as brides, in white satin dresses, and flowing veils, with orange blossoms in their hair. All carried lighted caudles, and took their places inside the chancel, where the prieBts were al ready in their gorgeous robes of lace and silk. The mass was then celebrated, and the music was truly magnificent. A sermon was preached from the text, " whosoever giveth up father and mother for my sake, shall receive an hundred fold, and in the world to come everlasting life." From these words he attempted to show the duty of this sacrifice as well as the great bene fits arisings therefrom. The victims before him were described to the congregation as having by this act, laid up for themselves treasures in heaven, which would procure for them eternal happiness, and more than overbalance any other discrepancies of their lives. At the close of the sermon, during the per formance of another voluntary, the two brides? Brides of Christ?were led out by their attend ing nuns, and after a short absence re-entered, attired in the usual black serge dress of the professed nuns, having veils of thick white muslin ; they then knelt before the altar and rose again, when they were enveloped in their grave clothes, and laid upon their faces for about ten minutes, during which time the burial services was performed over them, with the usual springling of holy water and burning of incense. They were then lifted up from their graves, and the strange ceremony ended by their kiss ing all the sisters belonging to their company, first on one cheek and then on the other, and then the procession left the church iu the same order in which it entered. These were two fair young girls, who might have been useful members of society and the light of their several home circles, sacrificed through a mistaken zeal, and given up to a life-long imprisonment within the walls of a convent, while the absurd mnckings which mark the sad occasion pass nnder the pervert ed name of religion. I regard it as altogether the most awfully absurd and saddening spec tacle I have ever witnessed; fortunately their occurrence in our enlightened land is but few. Salt for Animals. Professor Simonds, Veterinary Inspector of the Royal Agricultural Society, observes, in re lation to the action of salt on the animal econ omy, that " it is exceedingly beneficial in moderate quantities, but prejudicial in large ones.'1 He thought horses might take with advantage from an ounce and a half to two ounces of salt daily; but that an excess of it would render animals weak, debilitated, and unfit for exertion. Similar facts were applica ble also to oxen, which accumulate flesh faster bv the judicious use of salt, than without it. He cited Arthur Young and Sir John Sinclair, 10 show that salt had a tendency to prevent the rot in sheep. Prof. S. added as his own opinion, that salt, by its action on the liver, and the supply of soda yielded to the bile, led to a greater amount of nutriment being de rived from the food. The substance, he said, was ulso well known as a vermifuge, destroy ing many kinds of worms in the intestines of animals, and conferring a healthy tone of ac tion which prevented their re-occurrence. Several members of the R. 'A. Society, as Col. Clmlloner and Mr. Fisher Hobbs, stated that their experience led them to agree with Prof. Simmonds in regard to the value of Bait for animals. In reference to the mode of giving it, the practice of placing large lumps of rock salt in fields or yards, where it was accessible to the stock, was mentioned with approbation. The practice is now adopted by many farmers iu this country, and after several years' trial, is preferred to the former mode of giving salt periodically. When animals are only allowed to have salt once or twice a week, it is some times the case that they eat too much at once, but by having it constantly in their reach, they eat such quantities as their system requires, and it assists the digestion, and promotes health and thrift. Keslfrnatlon of Professor Lltbtr. We learn that Francis Lieber, LL. I)., has resigned his place of Professor of History and Political Economy in the South Carolina Col lege, at Columbia. Dr. Lieber has held his professorship for twenty years, and has dis charged its duties with signal ability aud suc cess. Beyond the limits of South Carolina the College has shown quite as much by the light reflected upon it from his name as by any orig inal brightness of his own. During the term of his professorship Dr. Lieber has prepared aud published a number of works on political and judicial Rubjects, among which bis Manual of Political Ethics aud his very able Treatise on Civil Liberty and Self-Government stand conspicuous, which have made him widely and favorably known, which have drawn forth most emphatic commendations from the highest au thorities, and have gained to their author the proud distinction of being elected a correspond ing member ? f the French Institute. Dr. Lie ber's influence over his pupils, now over a thou sand iu number, in various callings in life, has been great and salutary. From hirn they have learned sound and wise lessons in politics and history, not the arts of the time serving dema gogue or the shallow device* of the political wire puller. The rules and laws by which States are made gr?ut and kept great, the doc trines of moral truth applied to government and administration, these are the natrimenU which he has furnished to their minds. [.Botton Courier. Lieutenant Maury. It is, perhaps, not generally known that sev eral years ago Lieut. Maury met with an acci dent in a state-coach, which crippled him for life. He brought an action against the stage proprietors and recovered damages, upon the ground that he was incapacitated for the ac tive duties of his profession. By the Navy Register it nppears that he has not been to sea for fifteen years, but he has been usefully and honorably employed as Superintendent of the National Observatory, where, under special legislation, he has received a salary of $3,000 per annum. It is a fact, says an intelligent Paris correspondent of the New York Evening Pbit, of the authenticity of which there is no doubt, that at the moment when the order was given by Marshal Pelissier to attack the MalakofT (that attack which decided the fall of Sebas topol,) he had already had in his pocket, for twelve hours, an order from Paris not to make the attack. The order was the precursor of his recall, which was then On the way, and which was a condemnation of his previous ill success against the MalakofT, or of his slow progress, which had produced discouragement here. The marshal foresaw the blow which threatened him. Absolved by victory, he has changed the degradation which awaited him, into promotion to the dignity of marshal. hrora the ?t. L>uis Democrat. Ann.)! ot llM Scw?J?l?r P,*M* The October uuuiber of the Edinburg He^ vuu> ban an article ou " the newspaper press, containing some interfiling statistics ot the rise, progress and fortune# of that fourth power in the British realms. We have not yet had liiue to peruse the article attentively, or torrn a careful and accurate analysis of it. Sue* facts, however, as we have beeu able to gather Ironi a cursory glance at it, may not be uninteresting to our reftderw, indebted as they are to the press for the chief part of their knowledge of the current history of the times, au well us for no mean part of that direction and guidance in the atfairs of Ufe, political, commercial or personal, which in the preseut structure of society may be regarded as indis pensable. # The earliest newspaper published was " 1 be Weekly News," which appeared in 1022 under the auspices of one Nathaniel Butler. ^ Lp to that time, aud down to a much later period, the political warfare of the press was carried on by means of pamphlets, of which not less than thirty thousand were issued between 1640 and 1000. During the contest between Charles the First and his parliament, Peter Hevlin establish ed a journal to advocate the royal cause; Mat thew Needliam established the " Mercuriu* Hri tannicus" in the Parliamentary interest; the " Mercurius Pragmaticus" on the other side, and the " Mercurius Politicus" in behalf of the popular party. In 1663 Roger L'Estrange set on foot the " Public Intelligencerand in 1697 the " Observatorsorry looking copies of which we have ourselves seen, encased iu a picture frame, and presenting in every respect the strongest contrast imaginable to the great sheets of the present time, employing so large a daily expenditure of capital, patient and sleep less toil, and various talent, as do those enhste iu the cause of catering for the instruction and amusement of the modern newspaper reader. The 44 Observator" was in no sense a newspaper; such an idea not having yet entered into the human brain. It was a repoiitory of virulent political squibs, and would scarcely compare pith those vile and unnamable sheets which are sometimes obtruded on the unwilliug sight of the denizens of our American cities, and straightway transferred, by the aid ot a pair ot tongs, to the most adjacent stove. i et the number of newspapers in the reign of Charles II appears to have amounted to seventy?such as they were. , It was in the reign of Queeu Anne that newspapers first obtained general circulation, and became the accredited organs ot the diffe rent factious. At this time the stamp duty was first imposed. Th? journals of this period were remarkable for the eminent talent enlisted in them. Members of Parliament, ministers uf State, and literary magnates did not disdain to become journalists. 44 The Exaniner, the "Whig Examiner," the "Critis, the English man," 4c, were the names of the principal papers of this period. The advent of Junius served tu give an im press to journalism which in all subsequent irn ilatious has never been effaced. It was in 1769 that this writer commuiiicatea his cele brated papers to the 44 Public Advertiser the influences of which have extended to the jour nalism of the nineteenth century, both in fcng and America. The progress of the newspaper press, in ex tent, influence and reputation, from that period to the present, has been marked and steady. The "Thunderer of Printing House Square was established in 1788, about cotemj)orane ously with the establishment of the Mtiotial Intelligencer at Washington. The limes ot the present day,contains ninety-six columns ot a large quarto; the fullest and amplest infor mation from every quarter of the world; admir able writing on e^ry subject of the day, in which any interest is felt; frequent literary criticisms of masterly talent; full reports of all debates and transactions in Parliament; and to crown the whole, not fewer, on an average than two thousand advertisements daily. In 1753, the aggregate newspaper circulation in Great Britain was 7,411,757. In 1792 it h reached 15,005,760. In 1836, before the re duction of the stamp duty, the issue in Great Britain was abo.e 29,000,000. 1. 18?.,, ???r lhat reduction, 42,000,000. la 1848, 60,000, 000 for England, and 7,560,000 for Scotland. In the year 1849, the total number of journals in the United Kingdom was 547. The num ber in 1851 had still further increased, and the stamps issued had arisen to 91,600,000. Of that thick cloud of witnesses, the newspapers of the United States, of which everv backwoods settlement contains at least one, the article in the Edinburgh makes no account. M. W. K.

Whatever ia debated in Congress will be debated everywhere. The importance of official Reports csnoot, therefore, be too highly estimated. The couutry will pa?a upon the proceeding* of Cougre-a a? they progress. and public opinion, if properly informed, will have a aalutary influence upon the result. The Daily Gloii will be printed on a double royal sheet at eleven o'clock every morning, ex* cept Sunday, and will coutain all the measures of the I resident ol the United States j the reports of the Executive Departments; tbe entire proceed ings ol Congress) the laws passed during the session; and tba news by telegraph and from other sources up to the hour of going to press. The debates in Congress frequently fill thirty, forty, filly, and aonietuues more than a hundred columna a day. Whenever they make tnor ? than twenty-eight columns a day, extra sheets are printed. Tuesday's ConqkE3310.Nai. Globe will be pub lished every fueaday morning, and contain the proceedings of Congress in a condensed form; the current news ol tbe day and such editorial com ment upon the times as may be deemed suitable to the character of tbe paper. When the debates ol a week cannot be condensed into twenty columns, and leave eight columns of the sheet or other matter and advertisements, an extra sheet will be printed. The Congressional Globk will be the revised edition of the proceedings contained in tbe Daily Olobe, and tbe laws pxssed during the sessiou, printed in book form on a royal quarto page, and will, probably, make four volume*of nine hun dred pages each. The last volume of the four will be an Appendix, which will contain such speeches as are written out by the members them selves, with such deferred proceedings as neces sarily accompany them. Complete indexes will be made out and forwarded to subscribers soon after the end of the session. Il a subscriber shall lose any numbers, they will be supplied at the rate of three cents for sixteen pages. It is admitted by every cam etent judge, whose opinion I have heard expressed on tiie subject, that the debatea of Congress are better reported, and sold lower man those of any other legislative body. A calculation which I made for the Senate of the Lnued Slates in April, 1854, shows that Congress pays me for reporting and publishing Us debates in the Daily Globe, and then in the Congressional Globe and Appendix, only on* eleventh tbe rate charged in England for publish ing the debatea of Parliament, and about oh* seventh the average rate paid by the States of 1 cuiihylvania, Maryland, and Kentucky, (which are all the Slates in which the prices paid had then been ascertained.) for publishing their de bates in book form only. The debates of Con gress are offered to subscribers, in this Prospec tus, lor about on* half the price paid for them by Congress?the expense of reporting, and then publishing them in the Daily Globe to enable members to revise their reinarU for tbe Congres sional Globe and Appeudix, are all paid for by Congress, aud do uot form any part of tbe $6 which an individual pays lor them. Calculations showing the prices paid for debates are printed on the Ionrth page of tbe paper. To facilitate the circulation of the Congressional Globe an#> cheapen it to subscribers, Congress passed ? joint resolutiou making it free of postage. I annex it. as the law may not be accessible to postmasters generally:' 'Joint Resolution providing forth* distribution of the Laws of Congress and th* Dtbates thereon. "With a view to the cheap circulation of ihe laws of Congress and the debates contributing to the true interpretation thereof, and to make tree the communication between the representative and constituent bodies: ?B* u resolved by th* Senate and Hons* of Repre sentatives of the United States of America in Con gress ass*mbl*d, That from and after the present session ol Congress, tbe Congressional Globe and Appendix, which contain tbe laws and tbe debates thereon, shall paas free through the mails so long as the same shall be published by order of Cou gress: Provided.

GENTLEMEN.?The valuable medlclual properties of Balaam Copaiba have long been recognized by (he faculty, but the great die ad vanlaae arising front ita nauseous taate baa hitherle prevented ita administration in many diseases lor which it is particularly adapted. The uaual 1 modut uytrandi" of prescribing it, either in the form of an Emulsion or Gelatinous Cap sules, has not been louud satisfactory, being liable to some objection, either Irom the difficulty expe rienced by some individuals in the deglutition of the Capsule or the f-mall quantity of Copaiba gen erally found in the Emulsion. Joyce's tasteless solution of Copaiba is the most unique preparation yet introduced to the medical profession, as it contains 30 per cent, of the purest lJara Copaiba, without tasie or smell, and at same time mixes clearly and Ireely with water, and is pronouuced by the most eminent physicians and analytical chemists in the old and new worlds to coutain all the medicinal proper ties of LtaUam Copaiba without ila duagmbli characteristics. Il is an efficient preparation for all diseases of the mucous membranes, and particularly Gono rhetca, Leucorrhcea, Gleet, painful hemorrhoidal affections, and in chronic irritation of the bladder.
