We are, in France, on the eve of a new kind ot revolution, which will, without doubt, make the tour of the world. Chemists have just dis covered a process by which they can remove writing from any paper without leaving the sligh test mark which might lead to the suspicion of fraud. JNo ins can resist the powerot this compo sition, and no kind ol paper can retain the character it bears, l hat the government might be satisfied of the dangerous nature of this discovery.a chemist went to me preiecture ol police, and requested a passport for a stranger, which was granted immediately. The next day the same chemist went to the house of the prefecture himself and showed him a passport in blank stoned with his own hand. I "It was only yesterday" said he,' 'that this passport was given me at your office; and if this is the way the police conducts, no wonder that Don Carlos could traverse from one end of France to the other in order to reach Spain!" The prefect, astonish ' ed sent for all the agents of his office, ' All denied that they ever delivered this unfortunate passport; but they finally agreed that it was certainly the signature of the prefect which it bore, the particu lar kind of paper which was used in the office of , police, and the royal stamp with which it was ry, of deposition from office, &c, when the chem- ist appeased the anger of the prefect and the f fears of his agents, by explaning the means which he had used to remove the writing. One of the hrst bankers ot the capital maintained that the act of washing alone, by the means of which a written paper should be returned to virgin white ness, would leave some marks by which it could be detected. I he same chemist, who was in e pistolary correspondent with this banker, took a letter which he had formerly received irom him. removed the writing by composition except the signature, wrote above it acceptance for a hundred francs, payable to the bearer. This acceptance was presented to the cashier, who paid it imme diatly, and the Banker was convinced that he him self should have taken it. The public treasury has suffered by this discovery. In fact, the sale of stamped paper is not near so large as before, for any one may restore by means of this wash, leaving the stamp, &c, old papers which are no longer ot any use. several chemists are now oc cupied in preparing an ink which shall be proof aeainst this terrible discovery. In the mean time government has changed its stamp. The new ones bear the cypher of the year, and must all be re newed on the first of January. UOW A MAN FEELS WHEN ABOUT TO GET MARRIED. to represent but en the contrary, believe they will find it a source of prot, and be able in a lew years to supply the entire tie mand for sugar in Illinois. The labor of one man and horse for 12 mont!,3 will tend five acres the produce of. winch will amount in tne aggregate to ni least one hundred tons and manufacture it. The beet will yield about 10 per cent, of. sugar, which i3 2000 pounds per ton; making 20,000 pounds- of sugar from five acres of ground; which at the rate' of five cents per pound, would amount to glOOO! It is estimated that the value of the beet after the ausrar is extracted, for fattening cattle, is fully equal to the cost of its manu lacture. , The company, it seems, contemplate the cultivation of the mulberry tree, for the manufacture of silk and the raising of the Sun-flower seed, from which a large quanti ty of oil can be obtained, almost, if not quite equal in quality to the best olive oil. One bushel of seed yields abaat two gallons of oil, and is as easily extracted as the oil irom flax seed. Our soil is admirably adapted to both these objects. : The did Firm The Philadelphia Led ffor, in talking ot steel pens, says "lhe pens ht tor writing, are those manulacturcu by Messrs. Goose Gander & Co." Encouraging. One of our Express slips from New Orleans contains the following! cheering annunciation: "Jvo Murder com mitted last night!;.'" - Vjuite a subject ot congratulation, truly. Scientific Nature of Lynch -Law. Sam Slick, the Yankee humorist, described this' popular law to be defined by "hanging a man out side a church steeple, to see if it is perpendicular." It & said to be a ser'ws thing tor a girl to leave iier mamma and entrust herselt to the Keeping of the man of her heart. No doubt it is so but we propose to show that even the sterner sex cannot surrender up their single ness without some ralggUings ana irepiua tion. In the first place then, the victim of matrimony feels that he must surrender up the com pan ions with whom he has so long held close communion; his evenings instead of being spent at the club or the engine house must be devoted to the charming young creature, whose guileless heart' must find him very different from that to which he has been ac customed. But this is not all; he knows that after he has become bound in the silken chain of marriage, he is no longer a welcome visitant in those circles where while free, wreathing smiles and glaring eyes, strove to weave a net tor his ieet. lie knows that while a bachelor is welcome wherever he goes, a married man is regarded as one dead! crossed off the books and no longer an available to the fair. In addition to all these unhappy circumstances, he has become the head of a family. "Then throng the busy shapes into bis mind' of silks and calicoes doctor bills and duns for debts that he has never reaped the benefit of, - Like the horse' in the mill, he has a task to perform for oth ers. He is no longer free to embrace povertv or wealth. No wonder then that the young batchelor looks when the hour ol his enthrall-ment draws near. No wonder that with an angel at his side, he looks woeful. , ... 9 44"-- ' From the Richmond Enquirer DEATH OF NATHANIEL MACON. The Warrenton, N. C. Reporter of Saturdy last, comes shrouded in mourning for the death of one of the most virtuous and illustrious men, who graced our country. The Reporter anounces the mealancholy inteligence in the following simple, terms: .- "It is with feeling of deep regret we have to an nounce the death ot the Hon. NATHAM&L MACON. He departed this life at his residence in this county, on I hursday morning last the 29th of June, in the 83d year of his age." I he whole nation will sincerely share in this deep regret. Mr. Macon was one of those patriots who nil a vast space in the nation, s eye. He was a longtime a member of Congress from the State of North Carolina. He was in the House of Representatives in the trying crisis of '98 99 and for manv years afterwards. He was once Snriitrr of the House and he subsequently served as a member of the Senate of the U. S. At all times he was the firm Republican the pure patri ot tne excellent citizen honest man. JNo one ever more completely realized elevated character oi tne Koman poet, "Justum et tenacem firoliomti virum."

LETTER FROM MR. BENTON. St. Louis May 31, 185T. Dear Sir: I havo just received your let ter of the 5th inst. enquiring, at the instance ot our political mends in Jackson county, whcthei it would suit my convenience to vis it the county before my return to v aslunp: ton and to receive from them the compliment of a dinner. In answer to your enquiry,! I have to say that it was my intention to have gone through the State generally this summer, and especially to the western lim its; but I have been detained at home by the dangerous illness ot my aged mother. lhal illness still continues, and its termination remains uncertain; so that I cannot make any engagement about leaving home, abrid ged as my stay will bo by the convocation of Cengress for the nnnth of September. If it should be in my power to be in your county this summer, I should do it with'aj great deal of satisfaction for the purpose ! meeting and seeing my constituents generally, but without accepting the honor of a-public dinner. j On my arrival at home tins spring, it ar- ion with the paper system, she has lost iieij revenues; but that loss need not continue! long, thanks to Virginia and tho Statcs bestowed the national domain, thanks to- Jefferson who acquired Lonisian, and to Jncksjn who 1ms supplied the pcoplo with eighty millions of gold and silver. These, Lmds are now our resources, and will quick-. ly render the government independent of banks and sustain it lor many years io tome An hundred millions of acres of old survey- td lands in tho settled parts of the Statesj and Territories, only wait for graduated prices, according to the timo they have been in market, to sell immediately. It will doubtless bo the first business of Congress to malic this great fund immediately avail able. Many millions ol newly surveyed lands are ready for market, and only wait tho proclzniation of the President to yield SI 25 in barn money tor all the goou tracts. General Jackson kept thorn out of market last year on purpose to save them from speculators atd paper money; they will now go to the occupant settlers, to whom tho 1 reas-ury Order is a complete protection against speculations, and will be paid for .in gold and silver. Here aain we see the wisdom and patriotism of that great man in saving these lands last summer. JJcsiues the old and new surveyed lands, we have many millioni of acres yet to survey, for the speedy survey ina: of uhich Consress can immediately pro vide. We havo lauds enough then to sup port the; government for many years to come. and we have hard money enough in the coun ty to enaulo the people to buy it. 1 he eighty millions of gold and silver which Gen. Jackson' policy has accumulated in tho coun try, will furnish amide means for purchasing the lands, and sure 1 am that our patriotic population will prefer beneficial investments of their money in lands, for the enrichment ot themselves and the support of their own government, to the exportation of that mon ey to England to tho impoverishment ofj themselves and the support ot the Brush hanks and government. ' How great is the debt of gratiture whicl the country owes to General Jackson ! Even aftci he has retired from power, his wise measures are still the means of saving the country.- His accumulation of eighty mill ions of spicie makes the national domain' now available for tho support and preserra tion of the government. If wo had no more than the twenty millions which was all that the whola Union possessed at the veto Session of 1S52, we should now be able to draw a revenue from the national domain: with our eighty millions we can easily do it, and so practically teach tho country the great lesson, that we can do infinitely better with out paper money banks than with than. 1 hese eighty millions ot specie will also furnish the mints with ample material for the coinage of silver change, and will enable the public sentiment to extinguish the pes- tilerous issue oi paper chance. The stoppage of the banks in this season of, peace and tranquility, with four times as much specie in the country as ever was in it before, is the killing of the paper system by its own hand. So strange a stoppage. so causeless, so rapid, so universal, siiocKS anu astounds tne public mind: and eery day's deliy in return to specie pay ments goes to extinguish confidence in the whole, to confound the solvent with the insolvent, to carry the evils of a paper curren cy home to the people, and to prepare them! for the adoption ot the system winch the wisdom or our ancestors provided tor us in our own glorious csnsuti'tion. I shall leave here in Ausust for" Washing ton, and hope that we shall economise ?uus, pass tho bills which the exigency of the occasion requires, postpone all lung speeches to the long session, and finish all that we have to do in two or three weeks.

"The prominent object, we understand, i the manufacture of Sugar from the Beet; and from all we can gather from the reports. made by Companies in f ranee and the United States, who havo fully tested its practi-j cability we are very far from regarding it as a visionary project, as many are disposed paper system has brought upon so many parts. of the Union.
