Maho AKT— Some idea of tlie size and vaue of
the common mahogany, may be formed from the
fact that a «ingle log, imported to Liverpool, weigh
ed nearly seven ions, ws* in the first instance sold
for 378 1, resold for 6261. and would, had the deal
ere heea certain of tie quality, have been Worth
lOOOi. A »hört time ego, Mcesrs Broad woods,
who have long been distinguished as makers of pi
anofortes. gave die enormous sum of Ihre» ihousaiiil
pounds for three logs of mabogsny These logs,
rhe produce of one tree, were about fifteen ffeet
long, and forty-eight inches wide. The discovery
of this beautiful timber was accidental, and its in
irodncnon into notice slow. The first thst wis
brofight into England was about thebegining of the
Iasi century; a few planks having been scot to D.
L Gibbons, of London, by a brother who waa s
I Ye* 1 India Captain. The Doctor was erecting ■
fibiiwi in King street, Convent Garden, and gave tlie
planks to ibe workmen who rejected it, a* being
ton hard.
The Doctor's cabinet maker, named Wollaston,
was employed to make a candle box of It, and as he
wa« sawing up the plank, be loo complained of ns
.hardness., But when die candle box was finished,
it outshone in beauty all the Doctor's other furniture,
became sn object of curiosity anduslulmion. The
wood waa then token into favor—Dr. Gibbons had
a bureau made of it, the Dntclieae of Buckinghsm
another, and the despised mahogany now became
a pmmmeat article of luxury, and at the same time
raised the forturta of «he cabinet maker, by whom
it had been so little regarded.—[From the Library
of Entertaining Knowledge. *
sc The fi.Bowing anecdote, which is two well au
thenticated to be disputed, furnishes one instance,
among thousands, of that heroic spirit and love of
liberty which characterized the American females

and all, as might he well supposed, was in nad con

their treasures, and oilier* flying for life. In this
