Gaiuwkr à Co., Newspaper Advertising Agents, No. 6, Commercial Place, New Orleans, are the duly authorized Agents In that city for the Gatette and Cornel. The " S ea Bibd ."—Captain William Marehav has arrived with his snug little steam craft, purchased by him at the late Government sale of steamers at Mound City. The "Sea Bird" (the name he has given his boat), is really abeautifnlmodel, and has had several uselul improvements made to her which render her very tidy and comfortable throughout. Her length is 90 feet; breadth of beam, 20 feet; di ameter of cylinder, IS inches; length of stroke, 3 feet, 6 inches; and tonnage, 75 tons. We took a ramble through this prim and attractive little vessel yesterday and must confess, that we were highly pleased with all of her arrangements. She has a superior engine, with polished wrought iron shafts, besides an excellent boiler, drum and other eutfits equal to a first class «teamer. She was formerly the Al exandria, and was used by Admiral Porter as a tendor to his Mississippi fleet. Her hull is perfectly sound, and so are all her wood works. Should C«pt. M abkuam succeed in ob taining the ferry contract with our city and West Baton Bouge, it is his intention to make such other alterations in his ves sel as will adapt her more completely for the purposes of a ferry-boat. With such a commodious and convenient little steamer at hand, we think that the authorities having the power to extend ferry privileges in this vicinity, will be standing in their own light should they not &eize upon the present opportunity for securing the services of Capt. M askham ' s "Sea Bird" as a ferry-boat. ÎSF" The cotton market in New Orleans on Saturday was deproifscd, owiiig to un favorable accounts received from Liver pool. About 2000 bales changed hands on Friday, at the usual average rates. Considerable business was done in ex change, over a million of dollars in ster ling and francs having been sold by the banks on Saturday. Divers sales ol gold took placo, at 144, 144%@145c. BJ"" It is remarked of Abd-el-Kader, who with his two beautiful youug wives, is quite the rage in Paris, that he neither smokes or permits any one else to smoke in his house. He however does not abstain from wine. In these two features of omission and commission—anti-smoking and wiue-bib bing—ho stands in singular contrast to his oriental fellow-citizens, who, as a race, are proverbially inveterate smokers, and, ow ing to the inhibitions of the Mahommedan religion, affect strict abstinence from the use of wine or ardent spirits. We have known some of them, however, to use arrack and anisette, on the sly. Their indulgence in opinm, is almost universal, and occasionally they take to "hasheesh," (a liquid prepared from hemp,) which in its intoxicating effects, produces the most unbounded sensation of delight upon the fcrain, but leaves a wreck of misory behind. Four English travelers in attempt ing a descent from the highest of tlio Al pine summits, the Mattertorn, last month, were precipitated from rock to rock to a depth of 40Ü0 feet ! They had reachcd the apex of the mountain, over 14,000 feet from the base, and had descended safely more than two-thirds the way, when the rope to which they were all tied, broke and pre cipitated them below, as above related. Lord F rancis D ouglas was one of the unfortunate victims of this terrible adven ture. !-gr "Gon. S ickles has been assigned to the command of the Massachusetts mili tary district. They are wanting him in New York to run for mayor of that city. P apers " A d lnfinituh ."~Our friend Ram. A. Moore , just returned from Gal veston, has poured into our sanctum an almost endless profusion of Texas, New Orleans and Mobile newspapers, for which we return a great many thanks. J5gf We are under acknowledgements to Capt. Wm. Mabkham for files of late up-country papers; also to Messrs. Abchkr and Henderson foi similar favors. tifTThe Now York Pott, one of the moat prominent of the Republican paper«, says : The Republicans have ceased to be, from the simple fact Lhat they have no longer any distinctive croed to express, or any pe culiar function to fulfill. What they set out to do—to fix a limit to the extension of slavery—they have more than done; and the principle which brought them together having been accomplished they have no reason for being. jSgT A twel ve-toed chickon, a hornet 's nest petrified, and au astonishing worm, have DOen shown to the editor of the Ran dolph GU km. The toes were distinct and »oparate, the petrifaction was perfect; the worm, larger than the largest tobacoo worm, had its feet shaped like an elephant; "m twenty-four hour» he wove a web of most delicate texture, "went ia" and »hut up shop. Commercial and Agriesltaral Statistics. In contemplating the infinite and varied resources of the West, in all their natura' and artificial aspects, we hardly know which to admire and wonder at the most— the agricultural fecundity which has made that region the great granary and entrepot of this continent, or the mechanical skill and enterprise which has contributed so largely to its own material grandeur and prosperity. In whatever phase we choose to view these characteristic indioations of a supe rior advancement, we behold the impress of energy, industry aud perseverance. Not alone to the influences of climate, soil or situation are we to look for the developing causeB of such rapid and exalted prosperity. Other sections equally, if not more pecu liarly favored in those respects, have never displayed such marvelous growth, such profuse outpourings of wealth and varied enterprise to stimulate and perfect their natural and artificial resources und advan tages. Possessing the wealth, the soil and the climate, they were yet lacking in those essential elements to be found among denser populations, where from necessity as well as ambition, the energies are called more fully into play aud capital and labor combine more readily in the building up of great public and remunerative enter prises. A glance at the commercial, agricultural and manufacturing statistic» of the West is at all times curious and interesting. In deed, the subject is of vital interest to the Southern people, who have always beeo largely dependent on the West for bo many articles of sustenance and comfort; and therefore, it is, that a general desire is manifested to study the condition ol the Western markets and keep posted with reforence to the fluctuations therein at tending supply and demand as well as prices. The St. Louis, Journal of Commeice, (, one of the best commercial papersin the Union) contains in its issue of the 30th ult., tabu lar compilations Bliowing the rise aud fall of different loading and staple articles in St. Louis, Chicago, Cincinnati and New York, during the four weeks of August. The fluctuations in gold during that pe riod having been slight, the rates charged for other articles were correspondingly affected. Thus, gold in St. Louis, during the said month ranged from 10 to 4iHj'; ^nd cotton, (middling,) 58 to 42 cts. Su gar-cured hams were from 2t; to -38 cts. flour, (superfine,) $6 .50 to $7 50; lard, 2$ te ii cts.; whisky, $2 20 to $2 2.'>; mess pork opened at $80to $S1, atid closed at $29; bacon (shoulders,) opened at 11 to 1$ cts.; and .closed at 16 to ÎSJ^ et«. The moat of these articles exhibit ODly a slight vnriwtion in prices during the whole of that mouth. In Chicago and Cincinnati, the rates generally for the same commodi ties ruled a fraction or so higher; and in Néw York we find but little dift'erenee be tween the markets there and in the West. The St. Louis Jour aal of Commerce draws a fine picture of the commercial future ol that city, and says it is generally conceded that the trade there during the coming fall will almost, if not quite, double that of last season. The volume of business is gradually increasing, and prices as a gen eral thing were ruling very steadily. The receipts of wheat, corn, oats aud rye were lurge and meeting with fair demand at following prices: Wheat, prime to choice fall per bushel, $2 to $2 35; good to prime, $1 85 to $2; lair fall, $1 65@$1 75; com mon fall, $1 30 to ^1 40; spring, $1 20 to $180. Corn, (prime yellow and white,) per bushel,80 to S3 cts.; mixed yellow and white, 76 to 77 cts. Oats, prime, including sacks, 42 to 50 cts. Barley, prime fall, $2 25 to $1 35; prime spring, $1 to $1 10 per bushel. The warne paper to which wo are indebt ed for the above data refers to the seventh annual statement of the trade and com merce of Chicago, recently published, and quotes liberally from the same. The com parisons ofbusiness between the past years and the year ending March Slst, 1SIÎ5, give evidence of a large and steady increase. For instance, for the year ending as per date given, the receipts of flour at Chicago, were 1,170,264 bbls. against 1,424,505, bbls. during the preceding year. There are nine flouring mills in Chicago, which, manufactured in 1S63-64,228,128 bbls. ; and in 1864-65, 290,287 bbls. The above are only a few of the princi pal items relating to the business of the West. For want of space, we are unable at present to pay further attention to the subject. Enough is however given to af ford our readers an insight into the vast and increasing capacities of the West in matters of productive enterprise, and the current rates attending eome of its chief marketable commodities. To K eep B abies Q uiet .—An exchange paper gives the following modus operandi : As soon as the squaller awakes, set it up. propped by a pillow, if it cannot sit alone, Smear its lingers thick with molasses ; then put half a dozen feathers into its hands, and it will sit and pick the feathers from one hand to the other until it drops asleep; as soon as it wakes again, apply more teth ers, aud in the place of innumerable sleep less nights, there will be silence and enjoy ment unspeakable. Valuable Recipe .—The Cairo Times has the following: Valuable Kecipe —Our pressman, whom we eall Pete for short, has invented a plan to keep paste from rats, which we give for the benefit of printer» and book-binders in this section. After making his paste in the usual way, he thins it with lye made from potash, which no rat has a stomach sufficiently tough to hold. In this way he keeps paste for a week, and somtimes un til it la invulnérable to Pete himself. Pete"» a genius. TELEG R APKtïC.

J ackson, M iss ., Sept. 9.—A rnmor, which has been circulated for some days that Gen. Slocum had tendered his resig nation consequent upon the President's in dorsement of Gov. Sharkey's action in his recent militia call, is now generally re garded in official circles here as true. The Neros predicts, confidentially, that the colored troops are about to be marched out of the State, either for muster out er transfer to another locality. California Elections. San F rancisco , Sept. 8. —The principal counties return Union men to the Legis lature. The result appears favorable to McDougal for Senator. "Brick" Pomerot Strikes Peter Oleum. Petroleum, you are the Pete for me. Else why ? Mr. Moses smote the roek, and ex ceeding much of the oil traced forth. And I am rich oilso. To find so much grease, doth well agrease with me. 1 skirmished from a garret upon the oil region. Ever since 1 became born, my poverty has been hard to be borne. I have suffered—I have been bored by creditors. My credit was run into the ground. People thought me rieh meanwhile, and a very mean while it was, too. They thought I had plenty of money, so they wanted pay down for what I bought. Not, wishing to humor people, albeit something of a humorist, perhaps, 1 will not "purchase many things. I leased, I bored, 1 bought it. Veni, vidi, viei. Oil-i. He-i. (ireas-i. Oils well that ends well. I bored and it came. I drilled a hole through a rock, and have already been rewarded with so much of the fuel being prepared for the final conllagration, that 1 fear the last boil will end in as great a fizzle as did the Dutch Gap Canal. And now 1 am rich -more rich than any man or any othtrr. I have lots of money now, when 1 have no «se for it. What a queer world. Nothing like oil. Folks »ay, "Hallo, here's Honorable Mr. Brick, just struck a fortune. Deuced fine fellow, Mr. Brick." Three months since I was plain "Iîriek." It's all owing to Peter oleum. And now for a splurge. Brown stone houee ok Fifth Avenue, with brown stone front, designed by old Brown himself, on both ends of it. Red horses with green tails, pink eyebrows, blue eyes, chocolate colored ears, frizzled mane, and matchless style. Yellow wagon with black sides, purple blinds, and brown top, a la clam shell. Ethiopian driver, white kids, sol ferino stockings, magenta hatband, and false teeth on gutta percha base. And a sixty-lour ethiopiano, with brocatelle drawers, that modesty may not be shocke'd by looking at the legs thereof. And a library devoted to red backs and even "greenbacks," "Darn the expenses," quoth I. And I'll have a park in the woodshed, aud a bathing tnb lull of oil in church, and a buffalo to steak from—and oysters as large as Lincoln's majority, and boots with round toes and square heels, and a seat in some fashionable church, and new hoop-skirts for all my hired girls, and 1 will employ so many niggers to wait on me, that oil I'll have to do will be to bo happy. Oh Pete ! let me kiss you for your Ma. And I'll lay a bed a mornings, and sit up all night, and boro my friends oil day, till they can't bare'l it. Talk about honest industry, sawing wood for the dust, opening oysters fer the shell, blackening boots merely to see your face in them, and being honest forty years waiting for some rich man to adopt you. Played. Petro leum is the boy. And now I'll live high. Out of my house, vain pomp. Away from the cold cuts, crackers, cheese, mush boil ed No. 5 mackerel, warmed up soup, and and brilliant appetites. I've struck Pete. The Sex or the Oil W ells .—Before you havQ been here a week, you will dis cover that weils are very often the object of a great deal of affection, are raised to the dignity of sex, and as if admitted into the human race assomanymoro. A "dry hole" is always talked of as "it," and a very contemptuous particle "it" some times is. But if the littie puncture be haves nobly; if it turns out a great flowing well, it is sure to be "she." What the swift engine is to the rider, what the proud ship is to the sailor, what the sweet girl ii to the lover, such ia your hundred-Darrel well to its owners; a dear creature and a she. They watch it by the hour; no pulse ever thrilled more humanly beneath a doc tor's finger than that yellowish green stream to pulsate to their loving eyes. They learn all about her"habits" and disposition, a» if they meant to marry "her." They know what it means when "she" gives a sigh or a groan, as wells will. They abide with "her" daytimes, and sit up with "her" nights. They leave wife and children, and cleave unto the well.— Correspondence Chicago Journal. l=$$~ The other day, a lady wm examin ing the fine shawls and cloaks upon the life-size frames in a store in Hartford, and finally found a silk cloak that pleased her very much, and she raised it up, examined it carefully and freoly, and was at the con clusion very much astonished to find that she had been making free with the dress of a lady customer who very quietly stood as still us a stay figure, till all the trim mings of her dress had been well examined.
