on her way to Punama, on the 20th of April.
These islands are 2 1 7 miles from that place.
Sho was under full headway, muking about
14 knots an hour, when sho struck it rock
directly umlur her hows, and iiuuicdiutvly
commenced leuking. She was easily back
ed olT, but soon after struck upon another
about midship, and turned partially on her
starboard sido. The passeiiKcr, about 600
in number, were ordered to the upper side
of the ship, which released bcr, but owing
to her damaged condition her course was
turned towards the islands, whore she was
successfully beached, and where she now
lies. The passengers, treasure and U. S.
mails were safely lauded, and shortly after
forwarded to Panama on board the . L.

while on her way to San Francisco.

For the Argue.
Mr. F.ditoii : As the following receipts
may be useful to tho public, you will please
give them tin insertion in your paper :'
Varnish for Boots, Water-proof.
Take a pint of linseed oil, with half lb. of
mutton suet, 0 or 8 oz. of beesjvax, and a
small piece of rosin boil all these together,
and let the liquid cool till it is milk warm ;
then with a hair brush lay iton new boots or
shoes. If old boots or shoes ore to bo var
nished, the mixture is to be laid on whon
the leather is perfectly dry.
To render Paper Fire proof. Wheth-
er the paper be plain, written or printed on,
or even marbled, stained, or painted, for
hangings, dip it in a strong solution of alum
water, and then thoroughly dry it in this
sliito, and it will be fire-proof. This will bo
readily known by holding a slip thus pre
pared over a candle. Some paper requires
more of the solution to be imbibed than can
bo done ly n single immersion J in which
case the dipping and drying must bo re
peated, till it becomes fully saturated.
For Bots in- IIdrses. Take of beeswax,
mutton tallow, and loaf sugar, each eight
ounces put into one quart of new milk, and
warm it until all is melted. Then put it
into a bottle, and give it just before the wax,
&c., begins to harden. About two hours
after give physic t Tho effect is that the
bots are dischaiged. in large numbers, each
piece of wax having from one to six or
eight of them sticking to it, some by the
head, but most by their legs or hooks.
Sympathetic Ink. Dissolve a small
quantity of starch in a saucer, with soft wa
ter, and use the liquid like common ink ;
when dry, no traces of the writing will ap
pear on the paper, and the letters can be de
veloped only by a wpak solution of iodine in
alcohol, when they will appear of a deep
purple color, which will not be effaced until
after long exposure to the atmosphere.
What a German tblakt of American Proscription.
Mr. Valentino Heckler, a German, aow residing
in Richmond. V., ha published a letter, in which
he sny : ''If I wu at my native home in Germa
ny, and an American cititen wu to come there and
set himself up for an office, I should nut feel that
ho bad any right to comp'.nin of me, and feel un
kind toward me because I preferred my own
countryman to him ; and I think it would be a very
hard mattor for any American to get in offieo
where I cumo from, that was worth any body' hav
ing ; and for that reason I don't complain beeanse
Anior'ctins choose to hnvo their own peeple in pre
ference to mine." Again ho says: as for proscrip
t'on I don't sco, that as a German, I am nny more
proscribed by the Know Nothings, than a a whig
I was proscribed by the democrats." And in an
other pluco he soyi : "I am under greater obl:ga
tion to the natives than I sm to foreigners nn J,
therefore mean to to vote with them. I haveboen
three times ruined since I have been hero twice
by fire and once by robbery and have been three
times re-oslablislied in business, and every timo by
native Whig and Democrat j and no fellow-coun
tryman of m no ever yet lent me any aid in my
distress, aud there foro they have no claims on me
to support them for offices that, by the way, they
will never get ; and if any of my countrymen are
weak and silly enough to let the Democrat use
them n tools tot their own purposes, up to the
time of the elec.ion, and then bo laughed at for
their folly, they may d j It, but they dou't catch me
in any such trap."

Both Way Tried.
The city of Oswego, N. Y., last year votod No
Doenso, and so far as wo practicable, closed up
her grog-shops. This year a majority voted to Li
cense again, and one hundred and twenty grocer
ies of all sort are now in full b'ost.
We are assured that the effects on the legiti
mate trade of the c'ty are palpably disastrous.
The sellers of shoes, hats, clothes, dry-goods,
provisions, Ate., and their trade seriously diminish
ed aud their profits reduced to zero, becauso the la
boring class, who last year bought freely at their
counters, now spend their diminished earnings to
a sorrowful extent in rum. The children who had
caps and shoes last year, and went decently to
school, now skulk bare-headed and burc-foot into
tho g.ogcr'es, with scarcely rags enough to hide
the rum-bottle, whjcb ia stripping their homes of
comforts, and depriving them of happiness. All
but the tipplers, and a part even of them, have had
enough of license, and Oswego will, in November,
give a rousing majority for the Maine Law. Ex.
