Dies wan the first fire in Many Jar it occurred Early in the evening the peo pet tamed out in my is a i the weather favored Bat. Hillier of these Avo ring Cir euro Tanct been Larking a i tie fire occurred at a my i he or had High winds prevailed or had citizens turned out less numerous by or Smeed less efficiency use great probability is that one half our City would base been in before Mon in. We Are constantly liable liable every moment Day and night to the recurrence of ires and All their consequences and of merest if not common sense would Dic Ute that we should a to something to protect a a selves partially if not wholly against their effects. Reflect for a moment How Many Jar Toti would he rendered homeless and How Many would he utterly ruined in All their worldly prospects by the occurrence of a fire among us relatively proportioned to the great fire in St. Louis Why it would beggar almost our entire Community. We have not Here As there the capital speedily to replace whole blocks of budding nor have we that extent of Trade which would enable us to Rise immediately above tie effects of Sueh a calamity. The result would therefore he not Only ruin to All who should be overtaken by the devouring element but next to rum to those w to should even escape its direct ravages. In the cities engines Are in some instances furnished by wards in others by the City authorities. Ami in others again Are procured by or Nav a Suhs option and sometimes the organization is a joint concern tie City furnishing a part. Ami the lire companies by Means of subscriptions from private individuals furnishing the balance. As a general thing however All cities donate a lot to every fire company for an engine House. whether the City has contributed anything or not to the Purchase of the engine. A. Members of companies As an inducement to the prompt and efficient discharge of their duties Are exempted from poll tax Road tax. A. To lies a we believe Are the general principles upon which the fire departments of All Large cities Are based. We do not take upon ourselves to say what should tie the principle of organisation adopted among us our Only object is to fasten the attention of our fellow citizens it we can upon the importance Ami absolute necessity of taking Zariv and efficient measures Tow Ards doing some this m the premises. To this end we would suggest the formation of a fire company As the first step in the Enterprise. If the right Lind of me take hold of tie matter and with that Energy which the occasion requires we have no a Cost but that the project can he carried through w Ith tie most triumphant and Gratifying Success. Lair rest Law my Leway free Trade in it la nay. According to the recent enactment of the legislature parties Are left free to contract for such rates of interest As they see fit the Law Intel eyeing Only so Lar As to compel the fulfilment of tie contract whatever it May be. This Law will commend itself to the common sense of Mankind As in keeping with the progressive spirit of the age and we Are sanguine in the belief that tie Wisdom of its adoption will soon be made Manifest among us. 11 die weather is again mild. A slight Snow fell during saturday night but vanished at the first touch of the Sun on the following morning and tie present Prospect is that the ice will again leave us As suddenly As it came.

Frett Urs Vera a lie my die regular monthly exhibition of the Southern Iowa horticultural society will take place in this City on Dir Day next. It w ill be an occasion of More than usual interest As testing the relative keeping pro Ertie of the different varieties of fruits. The Public generally Are expected to be present and it is also hoped that those having fruits of and description in Good keeping will be present with specimens. at St. Pail fight with pistols Bowie knives recently took place in Minnesota tie tween James m Goodhue esq., editor of the a a Pioneer a and a or. Coo it or. Brother of judge Cooper of that Terri torn. The difficulty arose from some remarks a of Hie a a Pioneer a derogatory to the character of judge Coofer. Who is absent and whom the Pioneer a had severely for abandoning in Post in the territory and denounced him a a drunkard Gambler Loafer a. At the of the difficulty both a Artie Drew the sheriff being present he commanded the each. And took charge of the wac Jioni. Thereupon co her struck Goodhue a blow with to fist when Goodhue Drew another pistol and a hot a i per through the Abdomen Ooper though wounded Drew a Bowie knife Aud stabbed Goodhue in three places. It a up used when our informant left that both parties would die of tie effects of their wounds. Line of Mur tool and Fasi coach services from Kasiew ill Lew a. To Oregon bar Way my the a real a Atli Lake. The erection of a line of stockade posts from stir Western Frontier to Oregon was much talked of some years ago and for a time the proposition see to ted to meet with very Genera far r. Die in Deti breaking out of the mexican War however which at once called for a concentration of All Mir National resources upon the successful prosecution of that object withdrew both government and individual attention from the subject. Even the troops regiment of mounted riflemen raised and organized expressly for the Oregon service were ordered to Mexico Aud never took up their line of March for their original destination until some two years since. It a necessity for this line of posts existed half a dozen years ago when new Mexico Ami California were not dreamed of As u. S. Territory and when Oregon itself was considered at Best but an Experiment surely a greater necessity exists at the present time when so Many Hundred of Miles have been added to our Pacific coast when so Many thousands of our fellow citizens have established themselves beyond the Rocky mountains Aud when Oregon has proved itself so Rich in soil so genial in climate and so abundant in every desirable resource that it must continue for years to attract the attention of emigrants. Had those posts been established when first proposed much of the suffering and death which have since occurred upon the Plains might have been averted. Experience has demonstrated beyond All Power of contradiction the material fact that the route North of the Matte River is the shortest and bests furnishing a Good Road Good grass and Good water from Kanesville to the Salt Lake and Timber for a much greater distance than the lower route. It is also Central to tin great emigrating parties from Iowa Wisconsin Illinois Indiana Ohio Kex. To go by the old route from Independence you must Bear South Hundred of Niles to get to the starting Point and then you have a tedious journey North Over bad roads and through poisonous Springs to get Back to the line of latitude from which you originally started. That the settlers at the Salt like Are mormons is no reason Why they should not he considered citizens of the United states or lie denied the privileges of citizens. Die general government has justly admitted them to the enjoyment of civil rights by giving them a territorial government ac., and by providing them with mail service. This service is performed once a month at least such was the contract starting from Independence in Missouri. The contractor recently died at Santa be and As he was carrying the mails at Low rates it is not probable that his securities will deem it expedient to continue the service. An Effort is now being made to have this mail Start from Kanes Ville in this state and it would be hut right it should do so. As nearly All the mail matter intended for tie Salt like Valley is made up at Kanesville and nearly All that comes to the states from the Valley is intended for Kanesville. There is a daily line from this City to fort i is Moines and a Tri weekly line of four horse Post coaches from fort Des Moines to it i therefore somewhat important to Iowa that the Lino Westward from Kanesville to Salt Lake City should be at once established that it should lie made Post coach service and that it should he at All times regular and reliable. Die erection of a line of posts we consider an essential matter. They will afford Protection not Only to the mails but to emigrants and will Aid materially towards forming a line of settlements along the route. These posts thirty or forty Miles apart and garrisoned by from 3h to tih men each while affording All adequate Protection would furnish convenient halting places for the mail coaches and emigrating parties. They would also soon Cluster around them prosperous settlement should the general government in the Wisdom of its policy offer Liberal inducements. Die successful prosecution of the plan thus hastily sketched would require it is True the creation of perhaps two new mounted the resulting consequences in tie Extension of our settlement Westward and in the Protection of Emigrant would it is presumed More than counterbalance All immediate Felt unitary considerations. The emigration to the Salt like and to Oregon is not yet Oveis in fact Many sagacious minds consider it As but just commenced a and the question is shall things remain As they Are or shall a just Aid Liberal policy prevail ? die subject is fraught with much interest to our state. We furnish tie Best route and with the proper attention at Washington our state can be made the Highway of All future emigration. The attention of our delegates in Congress is respectfully and earnestly called to the subject. In la a a re a ltd or cling in Bruton Tuva i skis. At a Plank Road meeting Holden at the Brick school ii oust in Benton township . To qty on saturday the 1st Day of feb. 1851. J Din Penney. Esq., was called to the chair and appointed. Secretary. Or. Liv injure then in a brie and concise manner stated the object of the meeting after which j. T. Raster j. W. Penney and j. I la Imore of i Onia town Prairie severally addressed the meeting on the Utility of Plank r a ads and the Nece sity of immediately con so ducting one from Burlington to a Viginia Grove or some Point in Louisa county through 1 Afna town Praim setting Forth in a conc Lusa e and forcible manner the superiority of that route Over All others. I. Viall also of the round Prairie was listened to with much attend my by the crowd which had assembled at an Early hour notwithstanding the unfavourable appearance of tie weather. Messes. Tood Raster Jackson Pool j. W. Penney and Livemore who had been appointed to draft resolutions expressive of tie sense of the meeting reported through their chairman. Or. Livemore the follow ing preamble and resolutions which were unanimously adopted whereas it is in contemplation to construct a Plank Load from Burlington to Virginia grow in Louisa county at a period As Early As practicable and whereas it is absolutely essential for the Success of such an Enterprise that the Best and most commanding route should be selected for its location affording directness of course easy grades a sufficiency of Timber Ami consequently insuring cheapness of construction at the same time securing the transit of As great an amount of travel As possible therefore resolved by this meeting that the route from Burlington via tin Mississippi Bottom and entering tie Tama town Prairie at or near the Woodmansee place and thence through to unsaid Prairie and follow ing As nearly As circumstances will permit the Summit of the Ridge which divides the Waters running into Flint River from those flowing into the Mississippi until it misses Tama town Prairie and trom thence the most practicable route to Virginia Grove is Superior to All other named routes and indeed May Challenge comparison and dare Coin a edit Iii because it is unmistakably the tract which nature has marked out for the location of such a Road. Rnold that in the opinion of this meeting a Plank Road Over the line above designated can be constructed the entire distance from Burlington to Virginia Grove with a saving in Cost of not less than from six to ten thousand dollars Over any rival route and when the distance is computed As it should be from where the route diverges from the Burlington Ami tool Borough Plank Road it will then save an expenditure of from Twenty to Twenty five thousand dollars. If there be any question As to the correctness of these statements we earnestly and respectfully request an impartial and unbiased examination of the different routes pro due de by a civil Engineer of scientific and practical kill. Resolve a that the Farmers along and within the influence of this Road Are hereby solicited especially those residing on the round Ami North Prairies to embark in its construction at once because it can be constructed easier than Over any other route and entirely within the Means of those interested Ami because it passes Over a level or gently declining surface with but Little or no elevations in the whole Road so that the weight conveyed at each transit to Burlington need in limited Only by the strength of the vehicle of conveyance. It solved dial the Burlington City Council be requested to submit the question of a subscription of not less than Hie amount which shall be subscribe by individuals on the part of City to the St a cd of the Burlington and Louisa county Plank Road company for the route Here designated to the qualified voters thereof at their next annual charter election. Resolved that the bit Ringlon and do Elsbor Ough Plank Road and tie Burlington and Louisa Plank Road should occupy one and the same track from Burlington to the Bluff where the Latier diverges As specified in the first Resolution and should therefore be construct with the joint Stock of tie two companies we therefore solicit the Burlington and tool Borough Plank Road company to make this Section a joint Stock. Ria olred that a committee of three be appoint to prepare articles of incorporation of a or said company to be reported to the next meeting. Resolved. Diat a committee of three one in in uus taiga my the Lawer it mail i. In the Senate of the or. Duyka. Of Louisiana u add a motion fur the inn log of a Yah extra copies of the report of the Board of engineers in regard to a Survey of the lower Sippio submitted by the of War a few Days previous. This motion was opposed by or. N Al orb of Wise Stu who can see no virtue in any thing that docs not look to the a pandering of the lamps of the United state by giving them away and who was wonderfully worried the other Day because he imagine that or. was tut.-/��., at him while he was making a Sjo Eedeh. Or. Dow is explained the object of the motion Ami the importance of the report and then or. Ewing said i think or. President if there is any document that ought to he printed for the purpose of information it is this. The whole Valley of the Mississippi is interested in that improvement the upper a a ortion of the Valley perhaps nearly As much As the lower portion it is a matter of great importance that the outlet of to e Mississippi River should lie in some Way protected from inundations which Are increasing yearly at d increasing from very obvious and very natural Cau is. Some improvements which have been attempted to be made in the navigation by cutting Oil bends in the River have Temley to increase the flooding of the lower Mississippi very much As by making the current More rapid a larger and heavier Quantity of Alluvium has been carried Down and deposited very deeply in the Bottom of the Stream at its Mouth of course elevating the surface of the River and causing it to overflow its Hanks. The improvement of the Mouth of the Mississippi Ami the Protection of that Stream is i venture to say the greatest work that was Ever ump i taken by Man. I am satisfied there is nothing that approaches it in magnitude and importance. We All know that in every cd a entry changes Are continually going on near the months of Rivers passing through an alluvial country. Die Banks continue to overflow As the surface of the River rises from tie accumulation of alluvial deposits at its Mouth Ami where the country becomes inhabited and boiling Are Erec Teil and towns built so that the spot becomes fixed am stationary in Elevation the River constantly lending to Rise above that level threatens to destroy them. Now sir unless some Means Are taken to remove the difficulty at he Mouth of the Mississippi the spot on which new Orleans stands must inevitably in the course of one or two Hundred years becomes utterly uninhabitable and a place where no City can exist at All. The River is constantly pushing its Mouth into the Gull by pressing Forward this Alluvium. That makes the inclined plane continually less and constantly elevates the body of the whole Stream above. This pro it Cess is going on. As has been the Case with other Rivers Ever since the earliest records of history. If Homer and the greeks can be implicitly relied upon in regard to the geography of their country the Island of pharos which is now connected with the egyptian coast and lies fifty i a sixty Miles from one of the Iii Ziths of the Nile once fronted the principal Mouth of that River and was a full Days sail from it. Now that River has pics see out at that particular place fifty or sixty Miles. It has made its Channel and its Hanks there leaving a Gulf upon each Side. Diat old Channel has ceased to exist and the River has changed to a totally different place Aud there is nothing hut a Small canal instead of the Channel of the Nile at that place where the Nile originally Flower. Well these things must go on rapidly Here in the Mississippi River and the great question the mighty problem is to determine How this thing is to be Remer lord. It is a matter not for Louisiana alone nor for any particular Section alone but it is a subject for the reflection of the whole nation and i very much desire that the attention of the nation should get brought to the subject. A an inhabitant of the Mississippi Valley i am obliged to the senator from Louisiana or. Downs Lor having brought Belore us this proposition to print and circulate this document which will give some information upon the subject and enable men to reflect upon it. Now i a to not know what can be done to Rei Netly this difficulty in the Valley of the Mississippi. I believe the appropriation we make Here to Louisiana is totally inefficient. 1 have no Lea it will approach within a one tenth of the amount of the actual Cost which will be necessary to produce the result. 1 think the Channel will have necessarily to be Oji ened from some Point near the Mouth of the red River extending to the Vermillion or Atchafalaya Bay that there will have to be a wide one effected by embankments so As to carry off the surplus water Burlington one in Tama town in Rairick and one a a a yet not deep enough to divert the water Felt m in round Prairie be appointed to open books the Channel of the River. Some such mole must and a a a licit subscriptions to the Stock of said he adopted or the great City of new Orleans compar in in shares of fifty dollars each and re must i have no doubt in the course of two or port to our next meeting. Three centuries be sacrificed. Now i suppose it further Rito ired. Diat a committee of the scientific observations of these engineers three 1m appointed to Cui if r w Ith the Council of w hich i have not Lokeil at but desire much to the City of Burlington and a a a licit them to take fee will be Able to a Ati by us As to w hat can be cd Al.

Die impression is qute Genera in California that the Goltl Well Fri Al from Sand is Worth when coined from $18 to sch per ounce and i have met individuals who ins islet that the air Gold had Netusil them $20 i myself was under tie impression that the cleanest lot of Lump Gold on which it is commonly supposed there 1 let waste by melting were Worth something More than $18 the ounce but i had heard such a variety of opinion and assertions in regard to the matter that i was determined to test it Lor my own satisfaction. I took pin to get urge and clean Gold that i. Lumps Frea from Quartz and Fine Gold carefully cleaned with the Magnet. Before taking my Gold to a the mint i disposed of a Small Quantity which i Consin lured inferior Lor $17 65 the ounce and for the my it of which i could have go it $17 75 per ounce. I Labory under the Ini pression that if the brokers Touhl afford to pay that much for it. That i would be paid Lor taking it to the mint. In this i was mistaken however for the mint Only returned me $1760 per ounce making a loss on melting of nearly 1 per cent. It May he pro a or tor me to state that about two thirds of my lot was in lumps varying from a half dwt. To six ounces i weight. In the course a of a two years residence in California one becomes pretty exit Ert 111 judging of tie Quality of Gold so far As can be done 1 by the Eye Ami i am confident that no finer or Cli Oicer lot of Gold from California Ever went Init the mint.

The Fin rent trawler Telov Menh since on last article upon this a a bisect new development have come to Light. The female Trowser movement we announce it without much surprised has Sprail to America. Some of the mor in a women appear to have been the first to adopt the theory and practice of my w Reber of help twin but the following letter from a Lowell girl in St. Louis to the Lowell courier pro ave that the Trow ser contagion is sure aiming among Imp female population to a considerable Cut i t read and Ponder a St. Louis ,1851. Since my letter to Yon from new York concerning miss Weber. I have made a tour to this City where i have some relatives originally from Yankee land. >11 my Way Here i was in company with four ladies who were bound to California under Protection of their father and brother and As they were All four dressed in Maie attire i have thought some account of them would be interesting to they were from Philadelphia and a Are highly respectable their father or. Springer having been an eminent merchant there who met reverses in his business. 1 first met this family at Louisville on Hoard the Steamer on which i embarked for St. Louis Ami continued with them to this City. They intend going Over the Plains from Independence in wag tvs. Ami will have a Long and a tedious journey to were in Fine spirits however seeming to look upon their journey As a pleasant excursion. Their conduct on Board was perfectly lady like irn leed every a me was pleas Tel with Lute a Supply of coarse sting made apparel for the Plains but their suits worn on the by vat were Fash enable and Fine very much like miss Weber a i mean Black dress cd Kus Black pants Imir vests and hats of Glossy Black. The buttons of their vests were Plain hat surfaced Gilt very Rich but put on i fancied rather profusely to be in pure taste yet As their vests lit very neatly and As the buttons were unt Sally Rich they were generally admired by passengers. For my own part i confess a Strong liking to such vests but a to not a pave a it of Over trimming them with buttons though i certainly do think that a Buff Vest is a tame affair without a full trimming of a Plain Gilt buttons which Are the Only kind suited to cd ats and pants were All modish and fit to a nicety. To Weir hair was Cut Short and their whole appearance was genteel. They stated to me that they Felt perfectly at ease in their new garments and preferred them to gowns. 1 asked them w Hether they Pur posed travelling on the Plains in their Fine Black suits. They answered in the negative observing that they did a Supply of rough clothes Lor the journey but that w Hile they were in civilized regions they intended to dress like now i can say with perfect truth that no harm or ill natured Marks resulted from the course pursued by the miss springers. Every passenger spoke Well of them and the Law by passengers with Only one exception acknowledge that they no longer saw anything wrong in females dressing in male attire. I begin to think therefore that miss Weber May Cut me safely and not be considered an eccentric. At All events i have written to her to that effect and volunteered to her a cordial reception. But i must caution you not to keep your eyes tax it intently upon her person or you w ill be sure to fall in love with her. She is Iny Lieari Ideal of a handsome get Lam is and i could never desire to see her in a female dress. The eldest of the miss springers is very intelligent Arul Well educated. She says the Day will yet come when All women will Wear male attire. I have a Strong notion of getting a Liam Stone suit for myself to lie worn occasionally in select company. I do not fancy Black clothes and therefore must adopt miss Weber s evening suit. I suppose the Blue dress coat Huff Vest and a a Rah punts. Muchas i Admire this suit 1 know that i shall have to summon All my courage whenever i May first Wear it before folks. The Large flashing buttons of the coat no matter How Rich they May appear have a mannish stamp owing to their largeness. Those on the Vest 1 can Wear freely and i even think i should not feel uncomfortable in pretty looking pants and boots. But i May not get a suit after All. 1 am hardly tall enough to look handsome As a Beau. The alive i amusing enough in All conscience but the same a flow Roll girls w rites once More As follows i think i told you 1 had or was getting a male suit like mis Weber s. I wore it several times in St. Louis and Here i put it on whenever i choose. Of course i do not go out visiting our neigh it a it is in it but whre any of them Call upon us if i happen to i ave it on at the time i do not change it. Most of our neighbors have seen me Wear it and every one says it becomes me and a no one As far As i can hear Ever says a word of disapproval a it a me or my suit. I have had it on All this Day. It is certainly ahead of female dress on the score of convenience and i think also in Point of elegance when the figure is a suitable one our folks complimented me by saying 1 am a a a glorious looking Beau a a quite flattering to a girl who is so Plain As to have never heard a compliment applied to her when in female suit is just like miss Weber s Blue coat Buff Vest drab pants Black hat a pc. My coat buttons Are very Rich Gilt Fiat Mirror surfaced about the size of a ten Dollar Gold Coin and each might serve for a Mirror on a Pinch so they Are of some Utility As Well As ornament. I had a set of Gold buttons made for my they Are perfectly Plain also with a Mir ror like surface there is just a dozen in the Row and they does to mainly give my Vest a Rich and gentlemanly appearance my unmentionables that garment so much coveted by men Are exact enough in their fit to suit the Meriest Dandy in Broad . Of Lam a charming fellow rather better looking i think than either of the miss springers but not 19 handsome a Beau As mis at first we were somewhat alarmed by above but upon second Reading we breathe More freely. We lie Gin to understand it now. What will not some Young Law lick do to be admired they w ill Ilaw their waists into i the circumference of a go Al sized wrist they will Wear thin Soled slip ers on the oldest or Sto Miest Winter night and in other Way submit to torments Only equalled by those of a Martyr at the stake for the Sake of adding As they suppose to their attractiveness. Ixo nut understand us to say that All of the sex Are thus w eak. By no Means. It is Only a Small minority generally the Bult erties of fashion who Are so deficient in understanding and True taste. Now it does look very profitable from certain expressions in tie above letters Llinat the writer of them has resorted to lir rowed feathers because she think she a vicars to better advantage in them than in the legitimate plumage of her sex at least she find that she makes a a a a to them win i she never uni m her old apparel. But every Beautiful woman knows tha no dress rutile be More to her Tun the flowing garment which Cut Nii has prescribed for her sex. It gives a flowing Graceful curve of outline instead of the abrupt angles of the male dress. The hands was entirely covered. The further examination of this Mummy was then entrusted to the committee who w ill report on monday evening a ext. The body of the child was then unwrapped. It was embalmed in better it adds to her App Ircul height and majesty. A Tyle than the Ron Mon Egypt a in with by a proper concealment of form it also ten to increase that mystery which is never of Ottil separated from the highest feelings a of our nature. By being different from the male re a Tum it is a Visi it la and constant Reimler of the great spiritual truth that the sphere of woman is different from that Oil Man. It is not unreasonable on the Contra whom matting was generally the a it was w rapped in coarse cloth am embalmed in a different Mauner from that of got my a a Eink. Bitumen was freely us a. J �0 much so As to make it probable that a Hammer and chisel wonk Nave to 1� used to loosen some of the Bandage. Tie pitch Hail been applied cold As was sup posed some of the hair of the Hea i hav by it is the most natural thing in inc j ing been out Ait Alx hot Liaf an Inch Long world that those who contend that Man and woman Are Tuff Only equal but alike in nature should also favor a removal i f the present distinction which obtains in dress. Dress is to a great degree a Mere so mind. Thus As the great glory of a Man is his a Mig of Mill Ami body so the great and Peculiar glory of a woman is her Beaufy also of mind a and body. For mind Ami body Are not incongruous things but created Ami fitted in the Harmony Iff Providence one for the other. Now the dress of a Man his great Dis list Chinn being strength is arranged with a leading regard to usefulness to convenience w Hile the dress of a woman is arranged with a leading regard to Beauty. So it is to a degree even in Savage tribe a and just in proportion As a nation Asce mls in the scale of True civilization will its dress and other nodes of living tire Ami More symbolize and harmonize with great spiritual truths. And it follows from this if it be True that just in proportion of a woman is a True woman will be her recoil from Oil Miles of dress which properly Appertain to Man. If they rightfully tie Long to him they Manmit let Elong to a her Ami in they be Long to her they cannot without shame be worn by Philo. Sit. Ere. Pott. 1 Ami very soft and line. The examination of this Mummy was also entrusted to the committee who will report at the Ture. The invisible verily believe that the Best jokes in the wet Rel have occurred in our colleges Ami the one we \ Are about to narrate is As True As it is a mits Itig. It transpired in the a old North state a one of the professors of a College was in the habit of exercising stir be Illencz Over the students after a tent fall which was by my Means agreeable to them. He was accustomed to steel caution in along the Corr lors of the College am s whenever there appeared to Lee anything going i off prescribed in the rules he dial off hesitate to Peep through the key he a be and take an observations it or Iff the students resolved to cure him if his prope Misity and they hit upon the following expedient. In the course Iff their walks they frequently saw at a neighbouring farm a Large Black ram which was perfectly tame Ami which had been taught to butt any one who appeared to Challenge him by stooping or bowing his head. They manager one night to entice the ram to the College where they secured him in an empty Date room Ami fed him the next Day. At night just before the time for the professors espionage they j turned the ram out into the Hall having first shod him with a piece of Blanket. I he was perfectly Black and of course 1 invisible in a dark corridor. His Steps also was noiseless As he at pleasure the wide Hall. Present y the professor came stealing up stairs am on tip toe proceeded towards a room whence j issued rather unusual sounds. As he stooped to apply his optic to the key Hole of the door the ram taking it As a Challenge gave him aph Toful Hutt an l Tumbs Al opening of the Aluni Mitu at Phuntie-phia.�?o11 the evening off the 7th, at the Philadelphia museum or. Glide of pro Ceeder to the task of new rapping i he mummies of an egyptian lady Ami child in accordance with previous announcement. An audience of about one Tho Saml persons consisting of ladies medical scientific and professional men were present. The Back part of the stage was decorated with several Mummy eases outer and inner coffins some mummies papyrus anti ornaments among them was the body of a very Large and powerful Man which or g. Said belonged to John l. Hodge of him up j As Well a it he could Ami once More pros rated this amusing illustration of the ups and Downs of life continued some minutes until both parties made an unpremeditated descent of the stairs. The alarmed professor was it sufficiently j Hurt by his fall to disable him from flight Ami he made tracks for his dwelling with Gilpin Speed. The liberated animal fled also towards his Home. The next morning the worthy professor was seen at a was partly unwrapped ago. Prom the in name this City which about Twenty years script ions it was found that his was pet Issue he w to belongs to Isis and that he a a priest of Isis who died at the lies about 1,500 or 2.000 years before Christ. Or. Gliddon commenced the business of the evening. By stating that he had purchased the female Mummy which was about to be unrolled in i Mon about two years since Umler the a vice of or. Bush a very Early hour examining the floor of. A 1 1. Ks0.ll a Lapaz jts farm a Etnia of the British museum Ami or. Nash a celebrated Egypt Logist whose opinions As Well As his own were that the Mummy had never been taken out of its original Case hut he pm noted out to the audience where the Case had been mutilated at the feet of the Mummy most probably by Cut Tom House of ricers and frankly stated that the Hall very closely for some tracks which might unfold to him the character a if his a nocturnal foe he Soi ight in vain however and for Days the mystery preyed upon his spirits. A after the graduation of the next class he inquired id a gone the baccalaureate if he Hall off a hand in the adventure of that he knew no More of the contents than the a he Ami begged him if it were so a toe spectators. Plain to him the mystery. When the sex the second Mummy a child obtained 1 pm action was Given the professor was Fri a in Egypt was purchased of or. Harris j convulsed with laughter and said that a a a a a a a 11�-----i_ 1 had he discovered the joke at the time he i would have pardoned its authors for the of Alexandria. The child in a Good condition As far As could be seen. Is was swathed in Linen with the face minted on chef a. Or. Gliddon said that mummies off children Are very rare. In All his life he has no it seen More than a dozen and six of them were in the British museum. Over five him Lreh million of mummies Are supposed to be in Egypt and it is strange that the bodies of children Are rarely found. Or. Gliddon inferred this Mummy to have in ii made during the Koman Dominion. The inference that it was made during that time was deduced from the fact that it was not until that period that the egyptians began to paint the full face upon the cloth in which mummies were swathed. This would make the Date of this mummies Chi id about from 1500to2000 years before Christ. Or. Gliddon said no believed this was the Only Mummy child in this country. The inner Coflin of the lady who was Elxnit to be removed from the clothes was richly tainted and gilded and covered with figures of various kinds the lines of which were very vivid. Or. Gliddon said this inner coffin was composed of a substance technically called Carton age. It was formed of strips of Linen cloth glued together and moulded so As to fit the in try it was then sewed together at the Back and covered with stucco from which paintings were made. The inscription on the outside of this coffin showed the body w As that of Gat mus As Etna the daughter of got her of Ank a the justified a the father of a priest of Thebes. From the declaration on the Coflin it probable that the body was richly embalmed. There were three kinds of Emetia linings the richest style Cost about $1,200. The second kind $3000, and that used for the common kind of egyptians $20. With the Richer corpses jewelry was found though the relatives of the deceased were generally deceived by the embalmers who stole the jewels. The arabs sometimes opened the coffins of Rich mummies took out the jewels and put the bodies Hack. All these were contingencies which might arise and to which the Mummy in question a liable. The probability was that Thi lady had been embalmed from 1000 to �50 years before Christ. A committee composed of or. A. S. Patterson or. David Gilbert and or w 111. R. Giant were then appointed to matchless fun of the literary Gazette. half pm Disca Verte off the i tar or there has been no period since the commencement of the world in which so Many important discoveries tending to the Benefit Iff Mankind were made As in the last half Century. Some of the most wonderful results of human intellect have been witnessed in the last fifty years. Some of the grandest Conceptio mis of Genius live been perfected. It is remarkable How the mind Iff the world has run into scientific investigation and w hat achievements it Lias effected in that Short period. Before the year 1800 there was not a single Steamboat in existence and the application of steam to machinery was unknown. Fulton launched the fir to Steamboat in 1807. Now there Are three thousand steamboats traversing the Waters of America and the time saved in travel is equal to seventy per cent. The Rivers of every country in the world nearly Are traversed by steam boats. In 1800 there was not a single j Railroad in the world. In the United states alone there Are now 8,797 Miles of j Railroad costing $286,000,000 to build and about 22,000 mile of Railroad Ines Toland and America.

Hoes printing a West capable of printing 10,000 copies in an hour is a very recent discovery but of c most important character.
