Terms two dollars per annul in ail Rance two dollars and fifty cents at six months or three dollars at the expiration of the year. To most lines or less in a erred three tithes for $ 1, each continuance 25 cents. Office on commercial Row opposite the Post office. Bread stuff. Price of bread would not needlessly i interrupt the enjoyment of those who look Forward to the next Winter As a time of general starvation. But least their dreams should be too suddenly broken we must Call their attention to the facts contained in the last news from Europe respecting the prices of bread stuffs there. We happen to know of an operation at Liverpool by which fifty thousand bushels of wheat Are to be immediately for judged to this country and by the prices which Are published there is Little doubt that much larger supplies will be soon forthcoming for the Long continuance of High prices the successful Issue of the recent importation and the fact Well ascertained that our Domestic supplies Are adequate to our wants will give new Confidence in future operations. Let us see at what prices we can be supplied. In Paris the Price of bread is about 2 cents and in London 3 cents la. We found a shilling loaf in new York yesterday to weigh 3 lbs. 3 oz., which is near 6 cents la. The Price of what in Paris is 12 a Bushel and the Price of flour a barrel. In London flour is $8 a barrel. In the ports of the Mediterranean and of the Baltic bread stuffs arc much cheaper than in either London or Paris. The Price of Good wheat at Naples is 2s. Lod. Sterling a Bushel or 67 cts. From any one of these places freight might be obtained at 33 cents per barrel of flour and i2i cts. Per Bushel on wheat or about Hal the Rale charged on transportation of the same articles from Rochester and one fourth of what is charged from Ohio. Fifty thousand bushels of Corn have lately been received Here from Ohio by one House at a freight of 49 cents. The duty on flour is one Dollar a barrel and on wheat 25 cents a Bushel. Wheat therefore can be imported from Naples and Laid Down in new Ork at 125 to 135 cents a Bushel All charges paid and from a Hundred other places at the same or a less Price. Corn and Rye Are not burdened Voith a duty and May be imported to great advantage. The countries of Europe and Asia afford stores of bread stuffs almost inexhaustible so that the supplies for this country if they should run to the highest possible ��mivojl.1.0gai\sr0l&x, Irv Diana saturday we is 1836. No. 14. Mentioned. Hussein Aga maintained to me that he has with his own Eye seen the remains of Noah s Ark. He went to Christian Village whence he ascended by a Steep Road of an hour to the Summit on which he saw the remains of a very Large vessel of Wood almost entirely rotted with nails of a foot Long still remaining. In the third volume of As Emanni 214, occurs the following expression quot there is a monastery on the Summit of mount Cardu or Ararat. St. Phi Phranus attests that in his time remains of the Ark still existed and Speaks of relics of Noah s Ark being found in quot cardiac rum s Koor Distan. Quantity could Only affect prices in a very slight degree. Free Trade will Supply All our wants and the Cost with a Liberal mercantile profit will not carry prices above 150 cents for wheat 100 cents for Rye and Indian Corn 50 cents for Oats per Bushel and �7,50 for flour per barrel. So let the responding cheer up for no one who is industrious and frugal need starve in 1836 or 1837.�?jour, of com. Peter the great. In the year 1�98, Peter commenced the study of Anatomy at Leyden and afterwards pursued it at Amsterdam under the great anatomist Rysch. He seems to have had a Peculiar pleasure in witnessing human dissections. At Moscow he was at one time punctual in his attendance on the anatomical lectures of h. Billon. It is told of the Czar in evidence of his Zeal in this kind of knowledge that he directed that the dissection of a half witted Page who had died by intoxication should be postponed until he could be present. He ordered that All monstrosities produced in the Empire should be brought to st. Petersburg for preservation. This accounts for the enormous collection of these freaks of nature in the Imperial museum still in Good and Royal condition. He always carried a Case of surgical instruments in his pocket in which there were lancets tooth forceps a saw knife Spatula scissors sound and a Catheter. He was extremely ambitious to be thought a first rate operator. He required that notice should be Given him of All important operations and attended As Many of them As the nature of his Many duties As emperor of the greatest kingdom a geographically considered a on the Globe would allow. Tooth drawing bleeding &c., he was continually engaged in. A merchant had an abscess on his foot opened by his terrific majesty which proved so successful that the Royal surgeon became enamoured of Bis own professional abilities. People began to be in fear of their Monarch s love of the Art of Healing and therefore governed themselves accordingly. When the news reached the Duchess of Mecklenburg who had also a similar disease on the foot she left the City Post haste lest assistance should be tendered from the Palace. A merchant s wife who had been Labouring under a dropsy of the Abdomen utterly refused to be governed by the advice of her medical attendants. Such was the singularity of the Case that like every thing else Peter heard of it. He immediately waited on the lady and partly by persuasion but probably More thro the danger she Apprel ended from refusing the Chirurg ical tyrant in the presence of the faculty he actually with his own hands performed the Nice operation of Parac Entelis Adominis and Drew off Twenty Foar pounds of unfortunately the patient expired. He had a remarkable giant and a Dwarf equally remarkable. It 60 happened that they both died some time before their Abdom Itable by his express command they were both flayed and their skins stuffed for the future wonder and admiration of the medical and surgical journal. The two cities. By j. W. Simmons. New York and Philadelphia Are in Many respects strikingly contrasted. The one might be represented As a Gay and Gallant equipage drawn by four magnificent Grays with its mad outsiders careering against time a the other As a quiet and respectable family Carriage. The old school where every thing is neatness sobriety ind Good Breeding gliding along at the gentle rate which would show that both the feelings and ideas of its owner Are in the right place the heart As Well As the head. To drop the figure the one City is All it a pulse the other steady principle regulated by Good sense. The one is a hair rained spend Thrift who lives while he can the other a grave economist who while he wastes nothing enjoys every thing. The one is the wit the Sheridan of cities the other the Robert Morris United to the Genius of Franklin. To the Quick bosom of the one quiet would be a hell the other Only requires Leisure to do Good the one is a picture in Wirich All is action in the other there is Here and there a Beautiful blending of repose with Energy. Over the Gates of one you read. Fair laughs the morn and soft the Zephyr blows while proudly Riding g or the azure realm in Gallant trim the gilded vessel goes youth on Ilie prow and pleasure at the Helm regardless of the sweeping whirlwind s Sway which hushed in Grini repose expects his t Vyeji ing prey. Over those of tie other that far More devotional language breathing the very spirit of human Wisdom and of Christian Chantyl of the same inspired Bard teach me to love and to forgive a exact my own defects to scan what others Are to feel and know myself a Man in Short. New York would be the Choice of our youth and Philadelphia of our Middle age the mistress and the wife. We could spend a Brief intoxication with the one but when still evening with its Twilight Gray comes on clothing our lives in sombre livery we turn with a fond and deep yearning to the other. Philadelphia then is the City of the heart new York of the head. We May Admire the last but we love the first. In new York too the contrast Between Broadway and the rest of the streets is too great when not in the former you Are always thinking of it like the traveller who set out on his european tour after having Luxuriate in Paris he finds the roads the inns the people every things bad oui of Paris Paris haunts Hefti signs of the times. An observe my thinking Friend has sent us the following letter. We have taken the Liberty to publish it exciting the author s Pardon from his desire to Benefit the human race. I am impressed with the opinion that a great moral revolution has commenced and is progressing in the mental world. It is certainly very evident that intelligent men in All sorts of governments in the civilized world have become convinced that the political Power of a nation does not depend entirely upon numerical and physical Force but is More or less dependent on the aggregate of mental men begin to reason in Liis Way mind they say is infinitely Superior to matter. Mental Power will therefore in one Way or other beget and control physical or brute Power. For instance they perceive that by improving the mind of cach individual who is a component part of a nation cach individual thus a night ened will generally speaking acquire More individual wealth in consequence of the increase of his knowledge and Power of mind. Increase the wealth of every mid visual in the nation and you increase the wealth of a nation find it has been Long an axiom in politics that quot Money is hence it has been discovered that the political Power to say nothing of the happiness of a nation depends much upon the quantum of mental Power possessed by such nation. How is this aggregate or quantum of mental Power to be preserved and increased a most palpably by a Well regulated system of popular or common school education a of the truth of this position Prussia and France have already become you have Only to show men what their True interest is and they will be governed by hence i infer that a new Era is about to be developed and i also infer that press which can first speak to the Public on this subject in the Northern states of the Union will obtain a Lead in the great work which in a very Short time will to if it be not already the absorbing topic of i scission both in Europe and America. This View of the question Sci ulcers your establishment situated As it is in tie Centre of tiie great state of new York and in fact at the connecting link Between the Eastern and Western states immensely important. School assistant. Principal articles of Export amounting in 9831, to within a Small fraction of $12,000,-000. In 1835, we speak in both cases of the commercial year ending 30tli september the Quantity was reduced one half and the value in about the same proportion. In 1831, the value of bread stuffs imported was Only $1032, whereas in 1835, it had increased to 3,iii,11g. The year ending 30th of the present month will show still smaller exports of these arli Clos and larger imports. And the ensuing year from i re Crit appearances will very possibly show an amount of imports equal to the exports. Should the Corn crop be Cut off in the northernmost states As it is now very liable to be by the Early appearance of Frost the extraordinary phenomenon will probably occur of the greatest Grain growing country in the world becoming dependent upon foreign countries for a portion oils bread fattening Swine. Quot the Corn give Cir to your Swine Sli Ould be soaked boiled or ground into meal. It is an advantage to let the food for the Swine ferment a Little but not become very Soui before feeding. Dough made of meal and water mixed with boiled potatoes is excellent for the lodgings should he dry warm and keep clean. To prevent Measels and other Disori Ders and increase their appetites a Little Brimstone now and then Given in their dough is useful. Change of food is advisable in every stage of their existence. They should always have As much food As they will eat up clone but never More than that Quantity. If the issues in their fore legs should be stopped they should be rubbed open with a . Y. F.

So with Broadway the moment you diverge from it right or left you miss it and find yourself insensibly drawn backs and this fatigues for you Are soon made to feel that there is but one Street in new y Ork and that Broadway. In Philadelphia the uniformity is More agreeable at least to our taste one is not perpetually dying to be in Chesnut Street cause though a Beautiful Street there Are Othni s scarcely less attractive. N. York like tie pyramids is a wonder Philadelphia a grecian Temple that woos and invites you to repose beneath its Chaste and classic columns quot he scenery around the latter too is of far greater amenity and altogether Philadelphia w Ould Well repay the Knight who should proclaim her the fairest City in Christendom. Mount Ararat. The Mohomet ans universally maintain tha it was on mount Judi the Ark first rested and that it is Ararat and not the Mountain to which that name is Given in Armenia.

Forsyth lands the lady to a seat on a sofa and seated himself by her Side. She accosted him in Spanish. Or.

She expressed some Surprise but recovering herself politely addressed him in i Venchy quot ent endes Vous i quot a the shoulders of the minister were shrugged again the Dye in his Cheek was rudder and the raising of his hands and Eye brows showed he was again at fault. The lady Almos disconcerted tried him a third language. Quot did he understand italian quot it was All in vain. The minister thro some kind of medium replied that he knew none of the languages. The philosophy and politeness of the fair questioner vanished together and bursting into an immoderate fit of laughter which infected the whole Circle she ejaculated in her own stun get quot understand no language heavens the United states has sent us for a minister quot the laugh became so annoying that or.

Their wanderings in these interminable passages for such in their fatigue of body and mind they deemed them seemed to be endless. Their alarm was very great and their patience already exhausted when the Lica most of the party cried out that he could discern the Light at the exit of the passage at a considerable distance ahead but that he could Advance no further and that in his efforts to press on in Hopes to surmount the obstacle without complaining he had squeezed himself so far into the reduced opening Thath had now no longer strength to recede the situation of the whole arty May be imagined their terror was beyond the Power of direction or Advance while the wretched Leader whether from ter Roi or lie natural effect of his situation swelled so that if it was before difficult it was now impossible for him to stir from the spot he thus miserably occupied.

Extreme j over1y in some ports of Norway causes a paucity of articles that May be almost regarded As necessary to the comforts of life. In some houses the whole Stock of utensils Are one Large Iron pot an axe one knife and half a dozen wooden Bou is and spoons. The severity of the climate obliges the people to sleep in their Only room that has a fireplace and in one Large bed like a Deal Box into which they All creep some Straw is spread at the Bottom and sheepskins serve for covering. They seem to have scarcely a fixed hour for sleep but each gets in by Day As he finds himself the swampy lands the labour in prevents the women s Bare feet or their miserable remnants of shoes and stockings from Ever being clean but their tables and what utensils they have Are generally spotless. Destitute As they arc of every worldly Comfort two or three religious books arc to be bund in every House. The Hope of the weary and heavy Laden in every Clini is not denied to these poor sojourners in the Valley of tears. The following profound remark is found in the ruminations of Iii Gastick pow Ifill Esq. Quot Lif s like a filed of Blackberry and Raspberry Bushes.

Between the rows of Trees 1000 of potatoes have been cultivated this year besides forty five. Tons of Hay. This is indeed doings a great Deal in a Short time. Underground turnips. The seed of this turnip says the bait. Farmer has been sent us for Sale by a judicious and careful agriculturalists of Maryland who describes it As follows we have no other knowledge of this article. Quot the under grown turnip the seed of which is offered for Sale has the property of resisting Frost the bulk will remain nearly invisible and if sown on a level or dipping to the South the crop will be in Good preservation when Winter is passed. This turnip is recommended to persons with Large stocks As it has All the Good qualities of turnips generally and besides has the exclusive property of resisting Frost. It is advisable that the Experiment be made by Farmers generally if even limited to a bed in the Garden. It is not to be sown in drills on the level that is not to raise the drills above the surface the plants to be about 8 inches apart the drills two feet some persons to guard against a Winter often changing from thaw to Frost throw with the plough a ring on the North Side of the Drill not very High it proves As a conductor for the cold to pass off As the Sun acts on the turnip a which it does More rapidly than the solid mass of Earth of the Field in which the plants Are growing. In the Spring the turnips will be found sound and in a series of letters from Havana with the signature of m. C., we find the following sketch of the present government of that Nat. Intelligencer. Quot the government in in old hardly be conceived in the United states that a City of 130,000 souls including a Garrison of 10,000 men should have been for whole years trembling under the Moinard of the a Spanish government too is a very different thing from an american one. General Tacon governs to some purpose he is a despot a Pacha a satrap but withal an enlightened despot a just vigilant and firm he commands the army superintend the finances and renders Justice. He looks after the safety of the state and the cleanness of the streets. He is the arbiter of the Fortune and even of the life of the citizens while he does not disdain to attend to their Domestic concerns and occasionally to adjust their family differences. He wants nothing but the place of High priest to fill All the offices in Church and state. He appears in Public in a general s dress surrounded by his aids and escorted by a troop of cavalry. He is the alter ego of Royalty and As such is furnished with All the appliances of arbitrary bold opinions in Canada. The constitutional a Canadian Majier published at Toronto thus freely express the opinion of its editor Mackenzie in favor us quot a separation form the Mother country quot whether we Are the party of the few or the Many this great truth should be our rallying Point. Upper and lower Canada to be great and Happy must be Independent and we should use every lawful Means by petition and address to attain that Noble end. We arc an infant nation allow us to be free permit us to part in peace and Send the mean men who Are placed Over us Back to the Humble station from whence they were bought to our shores to disgrace our country and theirs the Corn find the following paragraph on this subject in the journal of Commerce. It presents a strange picture of the agricultural Prosperity of our country bread stuffs have hitherto constituted our the Sabbath. It is no rash assertion that from that holy institution the Sabbath have accrued to Man More knowledge of his god More institution in righteousness More guidance of his affections and More Consolation of his spirit than from All other Means which have been devised in the world to make him Wise and cannot fully estimate the effects of the Sabbath unless we were once deprived of it imagination cannot fully picture the depravity which would gradually ensue if time there thrown into one promiscuous Field without those heavenly directed beacons to rest and direct the passing Pilgrim.
