Amebican Women. Mr. David Mc
Rea, a Scottish gentleman, who recently
visited this country, ha3 begun to' give,
through the Glasgow Herald, his impres
sions of the people and its society. Of
American women he says :
They ore just as gentle and kind, as
lovely, 'as agreeable and affectionate as
our own. Their loveliness is of a differ
ent type pale and more ctherial. A
beautiful Canadian or American girl
comes nearer the popular itlea of an angel
than any being I have ever beheld out
of dreamland. Pale features cf exquisite
symmetry, a delicately j ure complexion,
eyes radiant with intelligence, a light,
graceful, often frasile form this is the
vision of loveliness that meets the eye in
almost every drawiog-ruom. I never saw
during all my life before so many fairy
forms, which it weald have surprised raa
less to see shooting on wings and floating
up into the' empyrean.
Wc -eulogize the Scotch women, and
the Scotchmen in turn praise the women
of America. This is on the principle
that mortals are never satisfied with what
they have. Husbands often see angels
in other mens' wives.
Theatrical. Mr. and 31 re. F. 31.
Bates, assisted by an efficient company,
are playing to delighted audiences nightly
in Portland, at Oro Fino Theatre'. As
an actress Mrs. Rates has few superiors
on this or any other coast, and her lady
like deportment and affability in social
intercourse -has secured to her hosts of
warm friends. Fora pleasant, entertain
ing evening while visiting Portland, go
to Oro Fino Theatre.
To make artificial coral for rockwork,
take four parts of yellow resin and one
part of vermillion and melt them together;
dip twigs, cinders, or stones, in this
mixture, and it will give them the ap
pearance of coral; and are applicable to
to rockwork, grotto-, or any fancy work,
as a substitute for that costly article.

The Senatorial question in 3Iaino has
assumed a new aspect. Percy, member
of the House, declared that he threw a
blank vote in the caucus unintentionally.
This leaves Hamlin with a clear major
ity of Republicans in the Legislature.
31orrill's friends now claim that Ham
lin has not beeu declared elected by the
caucus that they are not bound to sup
port him, and intimate that they will not.
A movement is on foot to bring on a new
man as a compromise candidate. Ilam
liu's friends claim that he was clearly
the choice of his party and fairly nomi
nated and that if any of his party refuses
to vote for him he becomes a bolter.
A Convention of Women. It ia
announced that the women of Germany
are to have a convention at Stuttgort
during the present month, not to demand
the suffrage, but to discuss the best way
of managing babies. Delegates will
doubtless be admitted from America.
Organ opnoNES. There is a company
of musicians in Paris called organophones,
whose members make imitations of all
musical instruments by means of the nose
ank throat. The "star" performer imi
tates "exactly the bass drum and cymbals,
and gets great applause thereby.

Strong alias "Skookum," a lawyer of
some notoriety living near Portland, for
attacking the business standing and
character of that paper in a recentspeech
before the U. S. District Court in the
case of the CI. S. vs Randall. Says that
the substance of his remarks were as false
as his heart has ever been ; compares him
to necessity, knowing no law; says that
his sobriquet, "Skookum," is an Indian
word, applying equally well to carrion,
and that more men have read the Com
mercial than ever heard. "Skookum'
make a sensible speech. The editor
adopts the ancient rule of "eye for eye"
and ."tooth for too'th," and says if this
kind of retaliation prove distasteful to op
ponents, "they may- rest assured that we
will avoid no consequences." And may
the .best man win. '

The gold diggings just discovered at
Auckland, New Zealand, are said to be
the richest in the world. One reef, 150
by 50,'is estimated to contain $1,000,000
in gold.- " Rich gold discoveries have also
been made near Cheefoo, in North China.

At Seattle, (W. T.), on the night" of
Jan. Oth, several houses were broken into
by a band of burglars, and clothing and
money amounting to SG00, taken. Two
of the burglers were arrested next day
by parties in search, and most of the
stolen property found in their possession.
One of the panics gave his name as
Daniel tJrown, but is believed by parties
from Oregon to be Mike Malohey, who

a murder and robbery at Portland. Ihe

San Juan Island. Tho Bulletin of
the 20th ult. thus describes San Juan
It is an irregular shaped island, about
fourteen and a half miles long. - The
greatest width is six miles, and the area
about fifty-four square mile3. Ranges of
hills extend along its eastern and western
shores; but at the northern end they de
cline into gentle slopes. The hisihest
peak is about 1,000 feet. Ihe center ot
the island is a rolling valley, with many
large prairies. There is pasture the year
round on a large part of the island, and
tracts of arable land a little south of the
middle of the island. The land generally
is fertile. The meadows have a luxuri
ant growth ; some of the hills are green
to tho summit, while others are covered
with large pine3. There is or was a fine
grove of cedars, of some value for the
mill purposes. One-third of the island
say 12,000 acres is adapted for grain
cultivation, and nearly all the remainder
except what is covered by timber, is fair
pasture. It has several good harbors,
the principal one being Port Henry. It
has an excellent roadstead in Ontario
Bay. It has four lakes with much beau
tiful scenery. The rivulets from the
lakes have several fine water privileges.
The southern end has a vera extensive
deposit of liuie stone, of superior quality.
Halibut, codfish and salmon frequent its
shores, and make ft one of the best fish
ing grounds in the vicinity. The Hud
son Bay Company at one time put up
2,000 to 3,000 barrels of salmon annually
at this place, all bough from Indians.

Remarkable Instance of Petri
faction. About sixty years ago, 3Ir.
Amos Broughton died in Wayne county,
in this State, and was buried there.
After his death his widow and children
moved to Buskirk's Bridge in this
eountyl where they now reside. A few
days, and the family of the deceased re
solved to bring the remains of the father
from Wayne county , and have them de
posited in a cemetery near their present
residence. In furtherance of this pur
pose the grave was opened and the coffin
exposed, but all ordinary efforts to lift
it from its position proved ineffectual.
The coffin lid was therefore removed,
when it was found that the body was in
the most perfect state of petrifaction. It
was covered with a dry mold, which,
when, removed, revealed a surface almost
as white and pure as marble. The body
showed not the least particle of decay.
Every feature and lineament was pefectly
preserved and when stood uprightjt pre
sented the appearance of a finely chiseled
statue. When 3Ir.Broughton died he
weighed about two hundred pounds,
while the remains had increased in weight
by petrifaction to eight hundred pounds.
Before the body was interred at Buskirk's
it was seen by the family friends and
many others there. ,, It ik) the most per
fect and wonderful instance of petrifaction
of human remains that has ever come to
our knowledge. Troy N. F".) Press.

tracts from an article contributed to the
All we know of the origin of our race
we learn from Revelation. The chronol
ogy used by civilized world is founded
ou the dates furnished us in the Bible.
Wo reckon the date of tho Hood from the
dates found in the sixth chapter of
Genesis. We laarn from this chapter
that Adam lived before his sen ScthAvaa
born 130 years; Seth. lived before his son
lTios was born 105 years, Euos lived bc
iore his son Cainaan was born 1)0 years;
Cainaan lived before his son Mahalaluel
was born 70 years ; Mahalaleel lived be
fore his son Jared was born G5 years;
Jared lived before his son Enoch was
born G5 years; Methuselah (087) waj
born 65 years; Methuselah lived before
his son Lantech was barn 1S7 years;
Lameeh lived before his son Noah was
born ISO years. N6ah, hence, was born
Anno Muudi, 1059. Ia Genesis, 7th
chapter, Gth verse, we arc informed thai
Noah was uuU years old when the flood
of water was on -the earth. Add GOO
years (his age) to 1,050, the date of ;be
Hood. We ieam from the 27th verse,
5th chapter of Genesis, that "all the days
of Methuselah were 969 vears, and ho
died." j By reference to tho foregoing
table it will be seen that Methuselah was
born Anno Mundi GS7; add his age, 809,
to 087 j the date of his birth, and wo
have 1056, the time "when tho flood of
waters was upon the earth." The con
clusion is as certain S3 figures that the
oldest man died in th&year cf the flood.
Was he drowned for his wickedness?

"Where have you traveled ?"
"All over the continent."
"For what purpose ?"
""What did you observe?"
"A little to commend, much to censure,
and a great deal to laugh at."
"Humph! what do you commend?"
"A handsome woman who will stay at
home; an eloquent preacher that will
preach short sermons, a writer that will
not write too much; and a fool that has
"ot sense enough to hold his tongue."
"What do you censure?" ,
"A man that marries a girl for her fine
clothing; a yTouth who studies medicine
while he has the use of his hinds ; and
the people who will elect drunkards to
"What do you laugh at!
"I laugh at a man who expects his
position to command that respect which
his personal qualifications and" qualities
do not merit."
