Early one morning he sallied forth faom the hovel where he had slept the night before, in search of employment. Ha had walked but a few minutes in the Slrand, near Somerset House, when a gentleman met him who accosted him. >'My lad, would you obliga me by car- rying this note to Chancery at the same lime handing him the note with an English shilling saying, "I will give you this .shilling for fco doing. Curtis instantly lodk the money, nnd promptly delivered the nets to whom di- r'enled. On hist return he mat u poor woman near Temple Bar, who appar- ently was in great distress, and u'lthough but n boy, she solicited charity of li'iu. Curtis asked the applicant what she had under -tier nrm, to which she replied by showing him a little white kitten; be mv mediately offered her all tho njpney he had for it, being the shilling he had just earned, with which she was highly picas ed. Curtis then set off with his kitten for Charing Cross; on his way thither u gentleman met him near Exeter Change, not fur from Ihe Adelphi, who, espying the kitten, asked tha lad what he had ur.dec his ragged blanket? Curtis told him it was a k'tten. The gentlman re- quested to look at it, which he did most critically then, said, my lad, you ore mis- taken, it is no kilten, but awhile weasel, will you sell ill ''Yes sirf" says Curtis; "what will'you give for ill" "Five says the gentleman. "The kilten ihen is yours." Gurus received the money, delivered over the kitten to the stranger, and then walked off with his guineas in his pocket. The day fol- lowing, Curtis (wlio by the bye, was a very handsome little boy) hastened to Cranbourn Alley to procure for himself' Byzantum, which was built by a colon} ofAlheninns, jTtow vulgarly culled Con- stantinople] to a grent lea merchant ol Canton, in tha East Indies, and received of him teas nnd spices of lhat country in payment for the opium my teas and spices 1 shipped and brought them stifc to London, [the qitenn of all. where in n short time nfler arrival, I had the good fortune to sell them to tha Lon- don En.st Itidia Company for one plum, alias one hundred ihousnndjaounda sterl- ing wljjch was paid rue in sppcie at the Bank of England. Cnder nil these cir- Curtis, 1 could not re fuse you rny beloved daughter, nnd at my death I shall you and her all my foitune, which is considerable. Go and be happy, Tiurn the N. Y. Courie TOTMN NEW YORK. In a letter from Livingston county, published in this paftersonra weeks since, iho writer expi eased iho opinion that Western New York, known 'throughout the world as one of the most fertila and beautiful agricultural sections of the coun- try, was decreasing in population rather than otherwise, in consequence of Ihe universally prevalent disposition to ej-ni- grate to the West. The widV and I'ich prairies of lhat regiori offer even to tho dwellers in Genesee, Monroe itnd Onta- rio counties, inducements for emigration too strong to be resisted. Our statements On this subject are confirmed by Western papers; the Buffalo Commercial says ihut ar9 over 150 towns in this Stale, whose population is on the decrease owing mainly to the ardent hope of the hardy cultivators of tiie soil to their condition by tilling the rich piairies of Illinois, Wisconsin, and ether new States and Territories." It is undoubtedly true that the princi- pal caftse of this waning tendency in the piosperity of one of the most beautiful (arming sections in tho world, is to be found in the decreasing value of tho land. The soil in Woslern New York is not ns good ns it was fifteen years ago. Much of it has been worn out by incessant and indiscreet cultivation. The Buffalo Com- mercial, in speaking of this matter says: proper and respectable clothing, to that "It now requires ihe produce of 200 might appear as well dressed as any of rei Afrit. everj aoul piewnt Thh is ill indevl, to brush Ihe dual inlo a fooe, became the woman very sorry il M. Many a neighbor has thus been enter- lalned with apologies and dust s.1 ft friend's1 house; and wherever thU pines, de- {Mad oo it. puts off to any limt, le no Ume, what ought to be ugae at the pcwMt ikne." the respectable boys in London, which he immediately accomplished with two guineas, being thus genleely equipped, und hearing bells ring for divine ser- vice lit Whitehall, where King Charles the First was beheaded by lhat arch hy- pocrite and tyrant, Oliver Cromwell, he repuierd thither, nnd paid strict allention to what fell from the lips of Lord Bishop of Durham, who on lhat occasion deliv- ered an eloquent sermon. On leaving the royal Chapel, a lady apparently of great distinction dropped her wfeite cam- bric handkerchief, which young Curtis observed as it fell. instantly picked it up and ran to the carriage as it was going off (the lady proved to be her Grace the Duchess of Devonshire.) The politeness and gallantry of the boy was highly pleasing to her Grace, and she di- rected him to take a seat in her carriage that she might inquire into his situation and circumstances. The boy most rea- dily accepted, of her kind offer, nnd had the honor of remaining in her Grace's palace unlil she placed him in Westmin- ster by her bounty and goodness he received an excellent educa- tion. A.S he grew up he was distinguish- ed for talents and worth so much as to become a member of parliament, where tie did himself great honor, particularly in advancing the abolition of the African slave trade. In the recess of parliament Mr. Curtis visited the watering place at Margate, where by mere accident he fell in company with a most beautiful and accomplished young lady about twenty years of name who lossessed every grace and virtue that man could desire to make him happy. On the fair ono his pas- sion, Deodama' was squally pleased with Mr. Curtis, who was of an elegant form, and graceful manners, and of the most manly beauty. It was agreed then that ihe matter should be made known to the father of the lady, which wus done. The father not only gave his consent to their union, but also settled upon his daughter twenty thousand pounds sterling, and pointed Mr. Curlis her trustee. On the day of her marriage ha put a diamond ring on the finger of his beloved daught- er, of the value of two thousand guinea's as a token of his love and affection, which ring had previously been presented to him by the great Catharine, Empress of Russia. To Mr. Curties he presented a bank note of the Bank of England, of fifty thousand pounds, observing ut the same time, "Mr- Curtis, I'verily believe, you have the greatest esteem for my be- loved Deodarnu, my only child, and she having signified some attachment for you, fgivs her to you to wife. But I must first tell you, Mr.'Curtis, that inde- pendent of your great worth and talents you had stronger claims on me for my beloved daughter than any othsr gentle- man whomsoever. The facts Deodama communicated to me lhat an attachment subsisted bttwaen you and her, I immedi- ately to her Grace the Duchess of Devonshire, your friend and patroness, to make some enquiry of her Giace into your history and character. The Duch- ess gave with oilier matters perfectly' satisfactory, the most irrefragable proof of your being the identical boy of whom I purchased the White Weasel, near Ex- tor Change in the Strand, .out of which I made rny fortune as disposed of VYbite Weasel (o the great Bnshaw or.Eiypt in exchange for ten hogsheads of opium, which I Bold in the old city of acres to support a family, which 100 acres would maintain as yrs. ago. If the line of demarcation could bo accurately drawn, between the tillers of the earlhtwnd all engaged in mechani- cal, mercantile, find professions' pursuits, it would be found that in more than 200 towns in this State, there are fewer farm- ers now than in 1840 or 1835. It is al- so worthy of remark, that, as a general rule, it costs more labor now to grow 100 bushels of wheat, corn, otvts ancrpotatoes, than it did in 1825. Why is this? Simp- ly because public attention has never been awakened to the fact that we annually waste about a dollar's worth per acre, on an overnge, of the things that make our daily bread, meat and clo- thing, to each of the eleven million acres under cultivation in New York. This needless wcisle of all the valuable ele- ments of giam in the soil, creates a seem- ing necessity for one half of our farmers to sell out to the other half, and emigrate to Wisconsin or elsewhere; A better sys- tem of husbandry must be adopted, or the productive value of farms in this stale will not exceed the price of the worn out tobacco lands of Maryland and Virginia. Every farmer must learn and fully un- derstand what it is in his soil that makes a crop of corn, grass and potatoes; and how much of each ingredient is ta- ken from every field by'each harvest." EXPERIMENT WITH Special Committee of the Common Coun- cil, appointed to investigate the cause of the explosion Warren's store, Broad street, which was the prin- cipal cause of the late ruinous-conflagra- tion, repaired to Mottville on the West- Chester co. side of the. Harlem bridge, yesterday, accompanied by several emi- nent professors and othert gentlemen, to test the question whether or not salpetre will explode. Three experiments were tried, the result of which was an unani- mous opinion, we understand, that salt- petre will not explode. The saltpetre and bag burned fiercely, but there was no e xplosion. The second experiment was a hogsherd full of saltpetre, slightly intermixed with bagging and other com- bustible materials known to have been in the slore of C. W. The hogshead was partially set on ihe ground, and vings and other combustibles placed around it, and set fire to. The result was the same as the first. The thicd ex- periment was with a boiler over a fur- nace, heated exceedingly hot, and con- a large quantity of melted saltpe- tre. Into this cauldron of melted saltpe- tre three bags ef saltpetre and slight combustible material were thrown. The heal was exceedingly great, but still no explosion. This seems to settle the ques- JV. Y. Sun. A HUMMING greater than Bacon says, that in spiritual language a bird corresponds to the thought of the human mind. The Tribune seems to have caught the idoa, an'd beautifully il- lustrates it while relating the following highly poetical A HUMMING BIRD, fresh glittering with the colors of the rainbdw he Imd just flown through, fluttered into our sanctum yesterday, and seemed ihe em- bodiment of beautiful thought came home from long and beautiful wander- ing. He soon.0rew weary of stillness, however, and the monotonous click of'the type; and taking nim to oh open window, a ray of green fend golden light flashed for an instant'befere and, like that thoejfat forgotten, he gone forever. OP THE BRITAIN; Frum the Nino York Humid, This monster of the iloep; unearthec from iib lair on the muddy banks of Ihe Severn, now flouts quietly in this harbor a strange sight to all America. We have seen her; all who can, .ought to see her. After a great deal of labor, we have compiled from the English pnpers.the fol- lowing scierilific and literary description of the monster steamboat This we have had-illtistruted nt consideiabla expense. The following are this chiaf dimen- sions of the length, 320; total 50 feet; c.ipacity, tons; draught of water, 18 feet; engines, power; four cylinders, 88 inches in diameter; Jeiigih of stroke 72 inches; chain wheel, 18 feet in diameter; tho propollirig screw in tho steam of iho ihip is 15i feet in diameter, and has six arms. The peculiar features of this great work, which invest the Great Britain with unusual interest, are Isl, her nrdinary magnitude; 2d, the mateiinl used, iron being employed to a greater extent thwi in any other ship; 3d, the pe- culiarities of form which have been adopted, and the qualities they confer on her ns regards speed and seaworthiness; 4th, the construction of the engine and boilers and oiher machinery serving for motji'p power; 5th, the employment of tho screw propeller; 6ih, the use of n pe- culiar mechanism, by which tho power of the engine is applied to turn round the screw. In regard, to her magnitude, sho is larger than any "first rtiio" of which we-have heard; and in Ibis respect the mechanical piinoiplos, which have lud to the adoption of great size, are in our opim'on sound. GE.NEIIAL DESCRIPTION OP THE SHIP. vessel is entirely built of iron w.th the exception of the boarding of her deck and some of her cabin fittings and of her carved work'. Her model is bome- what peculiar, yet accordant with the mate (when she was built) of many nau- tical men, and the speed sho has tince attained, together with her good sea qual ilies, proves lhat their opinions ware well founded. Her sides tumble, or fall in a good towards the top deck, from about the mk'dla of her length to her stern, giving man-of-war-like up- pearnnce and rotunuily in the after body. Abreast of tha boilVrs, which are forward of the longitudinal centre, her sides are rather fiuitish, but she has after all abundance of bearings for a steamboat, and more aloft might have produced heavy railing in a seaway. Her bottopi bearings are ample, and she is finely rRbnlued with a short entrance, approaching to the plough form, and an equally fine run. Her upper works, like most of the Bristol ships, are plain, but substantial in finish. The hull is form- ed of iron plates, decreasing in thickness from the keel upwards, and angle iron ribs of great strength. The plates are not, however, so thick in proportion to her size as those of some iron vessels since constructed, particularly those built at North, Birkenhead (for war but "she is nevertheless a very strong ship, being bound securely by rods on the ten- sion piincipje. The plates of her keel are from 3 inch thick in the middle, to 1 inch at the ends, and alt the plates under water are from 5-Stbs to I an inch at the top, except Iho upper plate, which is 5-8lhs. She is chiefly clencher-built, and double riveted at The libs are6 inches by 31, by a i inch thick at the bottom of the vessel, and 7-16ihs at the top. Her lig is that of what may be called a six masted schoonar with for and aft sails, and lugger topsails, with the exception of the mainmast, (the sec- ond from the which will carry a square mainsail and a topsail over She has four decks and the upper, or spar deck, is 308 feet in length. PERILS OF singu- lar rescue of tho passengers on ihe schooner Oraloo, off cape Elizabeth a short time since, has drawn out the fol- lowing parallel cases from the Sandusky Clarion. Cases like that of the Oraloo, says the Clarion, ore not very uncom- mon, ought to servo as a caution to the crews of vessels never to abandon thafan, until a thorough soaroh shall have been-made. Seveial years ago, the schooner New Connecticut capsized and filled, en Loko Erie. A woman (Mrs. Applaby) was in the cabin. Supposing, of course, that she was drowned, the ves. was abandoned. Four or five days aftes, the crew came aboard, and suc- ceeded in righting tha vessel. Their astonishment may well be convceived, POWERS the SOULl'TOH.

Another case, more fatal, occurred in this vicinity, anterior, wo balieve, to the other. The schooner Guerriere, com- manded by Capt. Wilkinson, was capsized in a sqall, and tha crew left the vessel probably in search of holp. There was a family of movers in and they, too, were supposed, of course, to be drowned. If we mistake not, whan "the crew returned, they found the father of the family clinging to tho vessel.
