though she had sustained a brisk fira from

(&h Russia tho jwlicc have forbidden all
trade or manufacture of cotton fowdkb. Tho
ostensible reason is its dangerous character.
In Prussia the artillery committco havo con
demned the new invention on nearly tho naino
ground upon which it was rejected in Eng
land. In France, on tlio other hand, constant
experiments are being mado to apply this
new articlo to warlike weapons. 1 ho pro.
gross mado in tho manufacture is already a
Kufficiont answer to tho principal objections
brought against tho original invention ; ana
it is quits probable that it nwyyot bo shown
that tho English and Prussian committees
havo been altogether too hasty in their con
damnation. Tha schoolmaster of Gen. Taylor, thoclic
roof tho lato brilliant victories ovor-a great
ly superior forco of tho Mexican army, re
sides in tho town of Preston, near Norwich,
Connecticut. The news of 'Gcnv Taylor's
bravery enkindles in tho old gentleman's bo
soma dogrro of patriotism which causes him
to enter Into tho subject of our difficulties
with Mexico, with all tho ardor of youth, and
to look with patriotic interest for whatovor
may relate to tho glory and fume of one, who
when a lad, was placed undor his caro and
Instruction. ' His namo is Elisha Burns, and
lio speaks of Zaohary as being a smart boy,
who gave promiso of usefulness, and relates
with much satisfaction various incidents and
anecdotes connected with tho family.
(KrThe colebratod painting of the "Do
parture of tho Israelites'' was nearly destroy,
ud by fire, in New Orleans recently. It was
valued at $10,000 and insured but for a
small portion of that sum.

tho year 1846 waa t8,247,834. The ioe

When General Taylor was a young man,
says the 'Louisville Journal, he and an elder
brother, William, long since dead, swam iron
tho Kentucky shore across tho Ohio river to
tho Indiana shore, and back again, without
resting. Thb feat was performed In the
month of March, when tho river was swol
len and chill. It greatly surpassed the fa.
mous cue of swimming tho Hellespont, which
is about a mile across, and of delightful tern,
peraturc. The Taylors were not accompa
nied by a boat, ia Byron was when he swam
tho Hellespont, which makes all the sflfeW
enco in the world. One winter, when Gen.
Taylor was stationed at Prairie du Chien, he
used to walk every inorning from his lodg
ings to tho barracks without a great coat,
when tho thermometer was forty degrees be

OCT Two Yankees took lodgings for about
ten days, at a tavern in Lancaster county,
and fared sumptuously, drinking two or three
bottles of wine daily. Tho last day a dis
pute arose about the speed of their horses :
they at last agreed to enter on the " profita
ble contest." The landlord was appointed
judge, each being the rider 'of his ewa horse.
When they were mounted, the judge, like
those at the Olympic games, gave tho words
one, two, three and "oo." Off they went,
and havo never been seen or heard of since,
leaving the landlord fully compensated by
having had the honor to bo their judge.
Tub Coquette. No woman is a coquetto
by nature, blie is mado so only by circum
stances and self-protection. This may bo
affirmed, and would doubtless bo proved by
tho history of every coquette, who has prac
tised thoughtlessly, or even with pretty ma
liciousness, her arts of deception.
Wo havo always pitied the mistaken girl
who endeavored to trifle with right thought
and pure feelings. In her conduct wo have
read tho history of one who was familiar
with that grief which cankercth ; who knew
of the loneliness which is added to desolation
who had poured out tho gushing streaxs of
iilo's earliest and best affections upon one
who was unworthy and was now proud of

memory, watered though it may bo by tears,
and kept verdant with tho dows of.griof,

and broken mementoes of faithlessness.
Terrible Rumor. It is rumored that the
ladies are about adopting gun cotton, Vor
