CFA half sheet to -day —next week we will commence the new year with renewed ener gies to make the Sentinel all that its readers could wish. A happy new year to . all our friends, and a elear conscience to all our ene mies. ETSince our last issue, Cobb has been elect ed Speaker of the House by a majority of two over Winthrop, and the President's message delivered and received here, the publication of which we will commence next week. ITA large number of new city advertise ments are unavoidably laid over till our next. iCSometbing about the Soirée next week week. We are too hard run just now to say anything about anything. Value of Newspapers .—To appreciate the true value of newspapers, says Eliza Cook, •*We have onJy to suppose that they were to tally to be discontinued for a month. We turn with horror from the frightful idea! We de precate such a shock to the circulation of table talk. It would operate more unfavorably than the gloom of November is said to operate on the nerves of Englishmen, and there would be nothing but the accounts of sudden deaths which happened in the interval, with the delibe rate opnion of a coroner's jury, ' died for want of intelligence." A merican T ^a .—Dr. Junius Smith, of Greenville, S. C., is still sanguine that he can cultivate Tea in this country, in successful op. position to the Chinese, and in a letter publish ed in the N. Y. Journal of Commerce, says he expects next year to plant forty acres, and that he thinks the plant will even stand the cold climate of the North. He offers to fûnish the needful quantity of plants to make the experi ment on Long Island. Wa sincerely hope he may succeed in adding this article to the agricul tural productions of the conntry. S upport Y our Own. —We notice on the part of some persons a indisposition to sup port—in a purely domestic sense—home indus try. This is wrong. It is the best economy to patronize our own mechanics. We should nev er send abroad for any article they can manu facture. The advantage of this is seen at once. It gives business to the place—is one of the spurs of general prosperity—keepajnoney at home, and brightens up the countenance of the mechauie. Even if the article costs a little mora at home than abroad, it is still better to patronize home industry than to send our money away—-because, ten chances to one, a portion of the money you pay out for the desired article, will, in the transaction* of brade, come back to you. How to P reserve H ealth .—Medicine will never remedy bad habits. It is utterly futile to think of living in gluttony, intemperance and every excess, and keeping the body in health by medicine. Indulgence of the appetite, and in discriminate dosing and drugging, have ruined the health and destroyed the life of more per sons than famine, sword and pestilence. If y ou will take advice, you will become regular in your habits, eat and drink wholesome things, eleep on mattrasses, and retire and rise very re .gularly. Make a free use of water to purify the -skin and, when «ick, take counsel of the best physician you know, and fallow nature. Q uick C okclusions .—The Newburyport Herald states that a man took passage in a •vessel from that port for California, last week, •Who had not taken a moment's consideration 4>f the matter beforehand. A workman in the .office of tfis Portsmouth (N. H.) Journal took the California fever while he was working off Ahe outside of that paper, left bis business, gathered his traps together, and in four hours after his determination was made, he was out side the harbor, on his «ray to the diggins. ItTThe Albany Evening Journal says that theiocofoco party, notwithstanding its coalition with the negroea and the friends of the negroes, js destined to a speedy dissolution. If that party expires hi the loving embrace of the blacks, the verdict of the Coroner's Jury must be—died in the woolr^Jjou. Jour. I The Disappearance of Mrs. Miller .—The* Detroit Advertiser has a long article, from the pen evidently without doubt, of some friend of Mrsi I. G. Milieu whose suicide at Niagara Palls was announced, and afterwards contra dicted, a few days since. The writer, after reviewing the facts, come to the conclusion that the stories which have been set afloat in some of the newspapers of her having eloped, are unwarranted by anything known. The only trace found of her was at the Falls, as we have already stated, where her new silk bonnet, or hood, trampled upon, was found on the abut ment of the b-idge which leads from the main shore to Goat Island, about two hundred feet from the shore. Her crape shawl, torn into three pieces, tied together by very hard knots, was fastened to the »ridge, apparently to let herself down, first to thi abutments, and then to lower herself still furth<r towards the rapid current which sweeps ove the Falls. The testimony jj-oduced of the state of mind of this lady—her lutory, habits, character, and the examination of all the events connected with her recent life aid experience—make out a case of such extrene improbability that she could have been guily of the crimes which the newspapers have circuited, as to make it im possible to be believea Vice in High Places .^Major Noah, in the Sunday Times, says: "It » a melancholy fact that-too many men, who utain the highest rounds of the ladder of ambiy>n, are addicted to vices the most loathsome an debased. We have seen a Governor of this &ate so drunk be fore breakfast, that he cou'4 notwalk; we have seen a cabinet minister so given t^ntemperanee that he kept a barrel of whiskey—<id very poor whiskey it was, too—on tap in his office; we have seen a Vice President protemptie of the United States rolling in the gutters ofthe city of Washington; we have seen the whole \meri can Congress so blue, that not ten of th6jj em _ bers could 'see a hole through a bidder;' an we have seen a temporary Speaker of the States House of Representatives so far gOo ) that he would have tumbled out of the chair, " he had not been held into it by the hand of i as his neighbor." Carpenters' Wages .—The Pacifie News has a report of the proceedings at a meetings at a meeting of Master Builders, in San Francisco, on the 12th ultimo. It appears that the journey men carpenters of San Francisco had demanded of their employers $16 per day, instead of $12, which, the master builders say, had been the standing wages for several months past. The latter deeming this movement on the part of the journeymen carpenters "highly impolitic, having a tendency to injure not only themselves but their employers, and the community at large," therefore resolved that they would not pay to journeymen carpenters more than $12 per day, uni ess as a mere matter of preference. member, who happened to be not quite so drunk ICTThe following shows how important it is that persons sending valuable letters through the mails should be very careful in the direction thereof. In March, 1849, a gentleman residing in one of the Southern cities, had occasion to send $50 to a relative then at school at Andover, Mass. He enclosed the money in a letter in the presence of the P. M., who duly registered the same, and as was supposed, sent on its way to the person addressed; but it never reached And over—and was supposed, to have been stolen, or lost. But mark the sequel: the letter in question was, by the person sending it, plain ly directed to Hanover instead of Andover, Mass.; consequently no one calling for it, it was sept to the Dead Letter Office at Washington, and last week was safely received at the Andover P. O. and delivered to the person to whom it was adressed. The above shows that Post masters are not always to be blamed for the loss or miscarriage of letters sent through the mails. Talent Acquired .—As it is in the body, so it is in the mind; practice makes it what it is, and most even of those excellences which are looked on as natural endowments, will be found, when looked into more narrowly, to be the pro duct of exercise, and to be raised to that pitch only by repeated actions. Some men are re marked for pleasantness in raillery, others for apologues and apposite diverting stories. This is art to be taken for the effects of pure nature, and that the rather because it is not got by rules; and those who excel in either çf them never purposely set themselves to study of it as an art to be learnt But yet it is true, that at first some lueky hit which took vpith somebody, gained him commendation, encouraged him to try again, in clined his thoughts and endeavors that way till at last he insensibly got a faculty in it without perceiving how, and that is attributed wholly to nature whicft was much more the effects of use and practice.— Locke. 0 s "Will you have a Daily Sun?" said a news boy .to Mrs. Partington. Will I have daily son? Wny, you little scape-grace! How dare you insinuate against a lone woman from home? No, indeed—I guess I won't have a daily son. My dear poor man used to complain awfully when I presented him with a yearly son. A daily son, indeed! Begone, you little upstart imp"—and the old lady called for the old turkey fan to keep her from swooning. 0"'The ominous out-givings of the Wash ington writers, respecting the contemplated movement of the Southern members of Con gress, incoherent and improbable as they may be, are not without an effect here. Most people are looking forward to a crisis, but none yet are bold enough to look at disunion straight in the face. The rumor that seven of the slave States have resol-ed to secede, in the event of the passage of the proviso, has been repeat ed so often, within the few days past, and by men who are in a position to know what they are talking about, that the public mind is made uneasy and excited. Who dares to calculate the mighty revolution om .rade and commerce would have to undergo, in the event of such r • I I ! calamity? This is the first consequence consi- j dered by men who deal in cotton and corn—its 1 political results are left to the masses, less un- ! ' der the influence of dollars and cents."— New York Correspondent. "Hurrah for OM Zim !" In a remote county of Pennsylvania the scene is laid. The time was the year 1842, when party spirit rose to 102 deg. in the shade, in every hamlet the length and breadth of Uncle Sara's glorious domain. The respective political par ties met in convention at Bugsburg (the county seat,) and made their nominations for county officers. As there were many aspirants for the few nominations, it follows as a matter of course that there were some bitter disappoint ments—to no one more so than to 'old Zim,' who was confident of getting a nomination for Sheriff. Zimmerman, or 'old Zim,' as he was familiar ly called, was a miserly old codger, who was well to do in the world, yet he had^in almigh ty thirst for office, and he was up at every con tion for a nomination for something, from 'time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the contrary.' He was reputed wealthy—that : never showed the color of it, except he should happen to get on a spree, and then he would ; sow it broadcast-but that was only a bien- I niai occurrence A few evenings after the nomination above 1 a small knot of the dissatisfied and di--affected were congregated at the Biackhor-e Tavern, discussing the merits and demerits of the for tunate nominees. I 'Gentlemen,' said old Zim, "merit and long service to the parfy is no recommendation in pJig'^untyT^TKe^wire^oAew^^d schemera ' ' nve it all their own way.' 'Aye,'responded one of the bar-room loafers, '% does the pickin' out, and thev expects us j to'v) the wotin'.' 'V, gentlewiere,' continued Zim, 'they will ' fetefiup against a snag or sawyer one of these ! day^Ls, gentle W»y the eternal, I'll upset j their aye-cart and spill their peaches. Til see ! whetheU's t] ie people, or a set ot' broken down : politicallyks, as makes the county nominations, j By Judas^'n break down the system—I'll run j as a volutä candidate for Sheriff, and if I don't ! lay 'em outw name aint Zimmerman, that's ! all.' \ I This detention was received with ; favor jT - .... _ by the crowd,zim se aled it by spending a •half' for red-ej Full soon he vas j n the field, announced through a card in\otjj papers to his fellow citizens, pledging bmgelf to discharge the du ties of the office impartiality— in case he was elected.

In one of his pereg^ ations he me t Wat tles, the nominee of Zim ^arty, who was also on an electioneering tour. •Ha! Wattles,'said he, 'U fi ne fellow, I'm sorry to see you allow yours* to be the tool of the unholy and corrupt calj j g™ £ anl sorry to see you sacrificed, but > u ' re bound' to be beat. I'll show them that ti, f re emen of this county will not bear dictation,^ m y f r i en d, if you wish to save yourself from 4 disgrace' of a defeat, you had better resign m y ^ vor.' Wattles expressed his conviction^t be should feel very much used up in such t event but at the same time he had made up h m ind' to stand the hazard of the die Election day at length came, and my \%by friend, armed with a hat full of tickets, sta;^ n . ed himself on the ground of his own preci»^ and commenced dealing out his ticket?, a-j urginghis claims in the strongest kind ef a wa_ ! miser as he was, he made his friends swim it) , r , , , , f „ , Monongahela long before the polls were clos ed. The electien over, evening came on apace, and the eager expectants gathered in the bar rooms to await the counting of the votes, and the returns to come in from the different town ships. Old Zim was flourishing about, treat ing the crowd, expressing his full confidence in the people and the success of his efforts to 'break down the system.' # Seated in a remote corner were a number of wags, in low but earnest conversation, and any one who might have chanced to see them would at once have concluded that something was to follow. The consultation soon broke up, and the plot began in about fifteen min utes to develope itself. The clatter of a horse's hoofs were heard on the frozen ground—a solitary horseman rode up to the door, and flinging the reins over a post, rushed into the bar-room, where he was soon raised on a ta ble, and silence commanded. 'Here,' said he, drawing a strip of paper from his pocket, 'are the returns from Lower Buffalo township—Wattles 50, Macgregor 40, Zimmerman 160!—majority for Zimmerman, 110! 'Nine cheers for eld ZimT 'HiKzaLbuzza! huzza!' 'Gentlemen,' said old Zim, taking off his hat—'I'm obliged to you for this expression of your—that is to say, let us take a horn all round!'' Of course the crowd acquiesced in this pro position, and the welkin rang with lond huz zas. But hark!—scarcely had the eager crowd imbibed before another horseman came gallop ing up to the inn. 'Beegum township one hundred majority for Zimmerman!' 'Nine cheers for old Zim!' 'Hip, hip, hurrah!' Again did old Zim attempt to speak, but his feelings overcame him—and he ended by in viting t lie entire company to just call for what ever l hey wanted. Again the glasses jingled as the excited multitude wedged themselves • tow; r Is the bar, and again was heard the clat ter of a horse's hoofs. 'Dublin township, one hundred and thirty ma I jority for Zimmerman!' I 'Ilip, hip, hurrah!' ! The excited candidate was wild with joy and excitement, and he again invited the party up to j drink. 1 Another horseman c me!—another, and still ! ^er.'-each one bringing an overwhelming majority for old Zim from the township he re presented. Alas! that it should be the same horsej vbo performed the feat of a quarter race every hour that night, and that it should be the same mad wag under various disguises that brought okl Zitn the glorious news. The column as footed up, gave Zim a cool thousand majori ty. Didn't he rave and pitch? Well, he did!— Didn't he Spend a cool thirty?—The landlord's till groaned under the weight old Zim's depo sites. 'Gentlemen,' snid old Zim, 'my heart is full [his head wasn't anything else], and I can only say that the glory of this contest belongs to you: but I feel a [brick in your hat, said a wag,] pride that I have been the humble instrument of breaking down the system.'—[Nine cheers.] Thus matters progressed until those who were completely 'sowed up, were laid out, and the remainder found their way home—some charitable friends of the Sheriff elect toting him on a shutter to his domicile. Early in the morning, the village wags with throbbing temples, met at the tavern to take 'u hair from the do, that bit them,' as well as to : SsSffgii*" r w?* ' 7 fenced worsfîip before ; ' f -T.V 'i thedG " I earned the day-nay, more, insisted on spending a V by way of a morn 1 The wa S a .^ erc determined to keep " »P aslong aaposss.bleand again drank and <"> •»» success.

We never hear of such a think without thinking of the ease of Mr. Ten ant, of Monmouth county, in this State, many years ago. He laid in a state of trance for weeks, but afterwards revived, and lived seve ral years. He published an interesting account of his sensations during the time.— Trenton (N. J.) Gazette. Anecdote of Dr. Franklin .—It is related of Dr. Franklin, that once, while in France, he had a dispute with a nobleman upon the ques tion, whether the majority ought to rule in State affairs, or whether the educated and well inform ed few should govern. The nobleman advo cated the latter proposition, and Dr. Franlin de fended the former. After some debate, the no bleman proposed to let the matter be decided by the company present, ond being surrounded by his own friends, they all rose at once on his side, and left the Doctor alone. "Well," said he, "according to your own principles, I have gained my casue; you represent the ignorant majority, and I, the |'wise minorits, decide that yoji are wrong, and must yield."
