The etrcuts - stanc of tha gentleman being left, originated through bis own meant hating; riven the rong aember of hit lodgings, the porter was unable to find him - a circumstance which at that early Mar couia ont lie remedied, and one which, he mon acknowledge was owing to a mistake on his part, rather than that of the proprietors. The fonl assertion of the writer of that scurrilous paragraph, particularly where he alludes to the drunkenness of the porter, must nave arisen either trora a s'rong inclination to fabify, or his laboriog under the same influence he has so uogeoerooily charged on the porter, a sober and industrious man.

We are al'o iniormed, that yesterday as a co?ch with a family of children was passing up Greenwich - street, an overgrown bog, punned by a dog, started yp with a loud snort, and ran directly under the horses' (set, throwing one of them flat on the pavement, where he lay ea tan gled in the harness for some minuter, to the ul most terror of (ho children and their attendants. Tha sloop Alert, tent out last December with the donations collected in this city lor the inhabitants of St. John, Newfoundland, who lost their all by fire, returned last evening, after en countering many perils and hardships. The grateful manner in which they received tha charity, is fully evinced in the proceedings of a town - meethg at that place, which shall be given in onr next. From Ihe Rirfimond Enquirer. A Utter of advice, written from a father to his only daughter, immediately after her marriage. The fallowing letter is handed to us from the pen of oue of the best'' and our correspon - deo' behaves in hie conscience, one of the greatest men that Virginia has produced." It is written In as admirable manner Uoo a most iuter - eting subject und is worthy of the high reputation which the anther boars. It form, in ... clletrt suppletneot to the cekbraltd letten of ur. rtorj to bis uaagntcrs. juyuevr, ion bare just entered into that state whtch is replete with hanpioesr. or m'uerv. The issue depends upon that prude:it amiable, tmifnrm roonuct, wmcn wmlon. and virtue to atronejy recommend on the one hand or, on tha' imprndence, which a want of t cfl. tllon, or pas - aion assy prompt, on tha other. But as thtre u no wish nearer to my heart, tlran that you may ensure all I bat hipviness, wnirh the union at virtual! persons is capable of beit - .win, snd m the b:r sometioies err for want of previous reflect m upon the line of conduct which ii invari ably "b pursued, tuw can I recutrvon abiv er serrice, thu by prsseuUo; yoc wilh that ad a vice, which the warmest affection suggest. My rxrttfiem - e. a well as. mv solicitude. sV. fond hope of seeing yoa happy and beloved, even salt interest, for tow hapuiness most aow constitnte the principal source of that of your parents, all urge me to fulfil duty, at once pleasing, ana trsMtmost useful. You possess a good heart, and a goad under. stantnac. roe are allied te n man ot aonor, talents, and of an open, generous disposition. Yoi have therefore, is your own power, au use essential mgredieats of domestic happiness. It cannot be snarr'd, if you new reflect upon that system of conduct, which you ought invariably to punoe ; if yon now see dearly the path from which von will resolve never to deviate. Our condact is, often, the result of whim, er caprice, often such as will give as many a pang unless we see betorehand, what is always the most praise - worthy, aud the most essentia! to nappi . I will call your attention to a few prima ry rules of conduct, from which a virtuuos wife. one who has tbe sense and the goodness, to en deavour to promote mutual happiness, aad to render tbe matrimonial state a feast of the par est anection, will neuer depart. The first maxim, which yoa should impress most deeply upon your mind, is never to attempt to cootroul your husband, by exposition, by dis pleasure, or any outer suarK of sneer. A man of sense, of prudence, of warm feelings, cannot, and will not bear an opposition of an kind. which is attended with an angry louk, or expres sions. The current of his aneciioos is suddenly stop'd ; bis attachment is weakened ; be begins to feel a mortification the most pungent I he k be littled evea in his own eyes ; an J be awured, the wife who once excites those sentiments in the breast of her husband, will never regain the high round wmcn stie might, and ought to nave re tained. v hen he marries ber, if he be a rood man, he expect? from ber smiles, not frowns ; he expects to find in her one who is not to cootroul him, not to take from him the freedom of acting as His own judgment shall direct ; hut one who ill place such confidence id him. as to believe that his own prudence is his best euide. Little things, which, in realit v, are mere trifles in them selves, often produce bickerings and even quarrels. Never permit them to be a subject ol dis pute. Yield them with pleasure, with a smile of affection. Be awured, that oue difference outweigh them all, a thousand, or ten thousand times. A diuerence, in reality, with your bus - band ought to be considered as the greatest cala mity, as one mat u to be mot! studiously guarded against : it is a demon, wbicn mutt nerer be permitted to enter a habitation, where all should be peace, unimpaired "onfideoce and heartfelt aflee tion. Besides, what can a woman rain by her opposition, or her differences .'Nothing. But she loses every thing ; she loses ber husband's respect for ber virtues ; she loses bis love, aud with that, all prospect of future happiness, ihe creates ner own misery, and then utters idle and amy complaints ; but utten them in vain. Tbe love of a husband can be retained oolv bv the high opinion which he entertains of his wife's goodness of heart, of her amiable disposition, of tne sweetness of ner temper, of ber prudence, and of her devotion to him. Let nothing, tinsn any eceatum. ever lessen mat opinion. Un the . ... . . v - . contrary it should augment every day j be should have much more reason to admire her for those excellent qualities, which will cat a lustre over virtaom woman, when her personal attractions are no more. Has your husband staid out longer than vou expected ? When he returns, receive Dim as tbe partner of your heirt. Has he disappointed you in something you expected, whether of orna ment, oi furniture, or of any other convenience ? never evuice discontent ; receive his apolorv ith cheerfulness. Does he. when vou are housekeepers, invite company, without inform - uir you oi u, or onngnome witn mm airieud; woaiever may be your repast, however scanty it may be, howerer impossible it may be to add to it, receive them with a pleasio? countenance, a - dorn yoor table with cheerfulness, give to your husband and to your company a hearty welcome ; ii wui more uiau cotnptn ate for every other do - flcUncy i it will evince love for vonr hiub&nd. good sense in younelf, and that politeness ol manners, wnirn acts as tbe mest powerful charm; it will give to the plainest (are a lit superior to all thalloxury can boast. Never be discontented upon any occaion of this natare If apologies, ai silly people often think, be necessary, your borband will make them ; or, an ingenioo.' wife will, with good humor, banter her husband for giving his friends so indifferent a repast. In the next place, as your husband's success in his profession will depend upon his popularity, and as the manners of a wife have no little influence in extending, or lessening the respect and esteem of oilier for her husband, you should take care to be affable and polite to the poorest, as well as to the rich. A reserved haughtiness is the sure indication of a weak mind, and an unfe eling heart. With rc.pect to your servants, teach them to respect and love you, whilst you expect from them a reasonable discharge of their respect - ive duties. Never teaze yourself and them by scolding i it has no other effect than to ren der tnem discontented, and impertinent Admonish them with a calm firmness, and if that moae wui not produce tne desired effect, let the be moderately punished. Cultivate your mind by the perusal ofthoe dooics, winch instruct, whilst thtv amuse. l)o not devote much of your time - to novels. There are few, which may be useful in improving, and in giving a higher tone to our moral sensibility but, in genera!, they tend to vi - tia e the tastt - , end to produce a disrelish fur substantial, intellectual food Most plays are of the same cases they are not friendly to that delicacy, which is one or the ornam.'nts of the female character. History, geography - poetry, moral essays, biography, travels, sermons, and ether well ritten religious prouuc tions, will not fail to enlarge your understand, ing, to render you a mnre agreeable companion, and to exalt your virtue A woman, devoid of rational ideas of religion, has nos cu - rity for her virtue it is sacrificed to ber pas - sions, whose voice, and not that of her jod, U her only govenvng principal. Besides, In those hours of calamity, to which families must be exposed, where will she find a support, if it be not in her just reflections upon that all ruling Providence, which governs the universe, whether animate or inanimate t Mutual politeness between the most intimate friends, is essential to that harmony, which should never be once broken, or interrupted. How important then is it between man and wife ? Tbe morn warm tha attachment, the lets will either party bear to be slighted, or treated with the smallest degree of rudeness, or inattention. This politeness, then, if it be not itself a virtue, it, at least, the means of giving to real goodness a new lustre t it is the means of preserving discontents, and even quarrels ; it is the oil of in - lercourte; it rt moves asperities, and give to every thing a smooth, an even and a pleaiing moremett. 1 will only add, that matrimonial happiness iloes not derv - ud upon wealth ; no, it is not to be found in wealth, but in minds properly tempered and suited to our respective ituatioos. Compe tency m necessary ; all beyond that point is ideal. Do not surpore, however, titat I would net advise and stimulate, if requisite, your husbaud to augment nis property by all hnoeet nn - i com - m untitle tntAns. I would wish to see him ac tively engaged in U' h a pursuit beranse, en - ga:;eDrenl, as - dulous eui4oyment in obtaining some luj,l,le end, is efseulKl to happiu. lo the attainment of a fortune by honorable means, and particularly bv pmteHonal exnrtion, a man derives peculiar nUUon in seir - Hr(Uu, as T V iu,TMiuR estimation iu wluch bo is UlI I by Uiom aroiu.

Such men always mdau cheetfuitcss, a Ike flv w of spirits, smilcctteoamtfy afford the tet proof of the.r happiot - Mj 'while the' indolent, or' those who spend more than they make, are as universally gloomy, discontented and peevish. la the management cyoeroVnestie concerns, let pradence and wise economy always prevail Let neatness, order, judgement be sera in all mar diffi - mnt denertmenta. finite liberality with a just frugality ; always reserve something for the band of chari.y, and never let your door be dosed to the voice of suUrnog humanity - Your servants, in par lieu Ur, will have the strongest claim upon yoor charity let them be well fed, well clothed, nursed ia sickness, and never anjustly treated. I could as easily write a vol um upon toil interesting subject, as the short letter whirb yon now receive. But I am persuaded, it is of mora importance to lead you " to reflect ia tioveyapoa tbe essf atial means of securiog nutnmoeia! happiness," than to eater into a more minute detail. Without such reflections, you would expect au effect, when the sufficient cause was removed In short there are two or three ways of gaining wisdom. If we are to be taught by our own experience, the cost is, too ofteo immense - If by the experience of ail those who have jone before as, tha cost to as is nothing; we set out aright, and the path we have entered upon, will every day become more pleasing. That you may enjoy mutual happinert is the fervent prayer of your affectionate father. - From Hit National Intelligencer. . raisca coiosriat mccla host. Ordonnanct . Bv hit moufv'r command.

The report from the mint is in these words From every appearance, the piece of cnirier seeou to have been taken from a roans that has undergone fusion. The melting whs, however, not an operation of art, hut a natural effect, caused hy a volcanic eru;tion. J he stream ol lava prohahlv canted nlvnf. in ife course, the aforesaid body of copper thM had formed into one collection, as fast as it was heat ed enough to run, fsom all parts of the mine. The united mass was proliahly borne, in this manner to the place w lie re it now rests in the soil. Thechrystalized form, observable every where no the original surface of tlio metal that has been If ft ufouched or undisturbed, leads uie to presume, that lbs fusion it has sustained wns by process of nature ; since this chrtstnlited surface can only be supposed to Inve l.sen produced by slow and gradual cooling, whereby the ropner assumed regular figures as its heat pased into other substances, and the metal itsrlf lay expo sed to the air. A to tbe prooerties of the copper itself, it mav he observed, that its color is a ch ar red ; that it is peculiarly qualified for rolling anil forgir.g ; and that its excellence is indicaUd hy it rest - in hlancetothe copper usually employed by th Enslish for plating The dealers in copper call this sort Peruvian copper, to distinguish it Irntn that of Sweden, which is much less malleable. 1 he specimen, under consideration, ia incomparably better than Swedish copper, as well on arcoant of its bril Iwtit color, as for tbe fineness of its pores, and its extrene ductility.

To the Editor of Oie Edinburg Weekly Journal. We think it our duty to avail ourselves of the opportunity which the insertion of the following teller auords us, of beanng our testimony 10 uie merit of .Vr. Ruthvrn's presses. In the course of an extensive busiuess during the last tweuty years, we have made patirnt and repeated trials of all the printing - presses that we know to exist s of the common press, the rrencn press, me oian - hope press, and the Ruthven press. Tha result is, that we give tbe preference, very decidedly, to the Ruthven press t because we have found it to be superior to the French, and equal to the Stanhope press, in uniformity of impression, and facility of workings and far superior to both in durability. We think it, therefore, the best, and, with reference to its excellence and strength, tbe cheapest press, that we have ever made trial of. JAMES BALLANTYNE b CO. Sir, As an object of the greatest importance to printers has now been completely ascertained by my patent printing presses, I request yoe will hare the goodness to communicate it, through the medium of your paper. From the arrangement of the parts of the press, and from the power being applied at each end of the platiu, and returned against pie under - sunace ol tne tablet or coffin, the pressure is so equally diffused, that there is not only a more clear impression produ ced, but an immense saving in the durability of the type, is saUslariordy proved, ine accuracy of the pressure, and the uniformity with which it is appliid, is inch, that from an ounce to twenty ton; of pressure, or upwards, may be given with the greatest facility and certa i..ty ; as a proof of this, the smallest piece of work may be printed at the one end of the tablet, without a bearer in any part of it. For their decided superiority in printing from stereotype plates, I refer to Mr. Rutt, Shackle - well, near London, where seven of my presses hare been engaged on stereotype work for up wards of two years. I may add, that from this invention having been brought forward after upwards of twenty years practical experience in the printing business, 1 have been enabled to give it all those ad vantage w hich can only be procured from a pro - fenional knowledge both of the press and those employed at it. I am, sir, your's, lc JOHN RUTHVEN. sr. sirrnena. (an b ami) May 9. Governor Bibb returned to this place on Sun day last.

I ie day afterwards the e - overnor of Pensaccla issued a proclamation, forbidding the inhabitants to sell or give any supplies to the Indians, and informed the Chiefs that they should not be pro tected.

Many conjectures have long been afloat respecting the cause of the destruction of fruit ti ees, particularly thme of the peach vkI plum some have ascribed it to a worm in tbe root, others to an epidemic, and ami med, that when one tree was nfeeted the disorder was communicated toothers I have, however. long held a d.fferent opinion, and have now become fully satisfied, that the evil originates from the.t.ngof an insect, commonly called a Beetle, or Scaraboeus, evidently of the Coleoptera tr be. This insect is a - bout the size of a large pole bean, of a dark brown colour i millions of them have this season appeared, and are found in spading up gardens, and ploughing. Early in the morning they shelter themselves about three inches under ground, where they continue in a kind of torpid state, until night, when they crawl out, take the wing, and buzz among the branches of the tree - like a swarm of bees ; they feed on the leaves and sting the tender branches of the trees, which sting is ao poironous as to effect the j ; ices of the whole tree, and to cause the leases to turn yellow, and crir.kle.and the tree to die. The early fruit has already been stung, and will .ioubUtss drop, or become wormy. I publish this with a hope that some one more competent than myself may make a more thorough exi mination, and point ont a remedy. AOHICOLA. From the Monthly Magasine. Injurious tffrett of JLinntLU is a prevalent but mot erroneous idea that flannel next the skin improves the health ; instead of which ii is decidedly debilitating and renders the tender ud delicate f who all perspire too readily) still tore so. Flannel being a bad conductor of heat, Ihe body h kept in warm weather in a constant vapour both of its own transpiration, and the sa - lutaij access of tbe air prevented. The ultimate consequences of tbe excessive excitements of the cutaneous functions are a'oay and relaxation: txtrspimtiou is rendered doubly liable to suppression, and the stomach aud d:gestive organs suffer frtai direct sympathy. Maoael next tbe skin is an effectual means of reducing the flesh, as is well known te prrsons n training jockeys. Ac - Doubtless it is b'ghly ireful in many diseases (in determini. - r to fie surface) and in old age, to excite 'mv diminished peespiration.

The safer and sorer way is for the invalid to consult his physician, as to the expediency of leaving off flannel or continuing tbe wear of it, and not lo trust to any general rules on the subject. . The horte and the riper By a We report read before the Royal Institute of France, it appears that the great viper, called Fer de lance, is one of the most dreadful scourges of the West - Indies, but is fbuod only in Martinique, St. Lucia, and another small island. This viper is so savage, that the moment it sees any person, it immediately erects itself, and springs upon h,im. Iu raising itself, it rests upon four equal circles, formed by the lower part of the body : when it springs, these circles are suddenly dissolved After the spring, if it should miss its object, it may be attacked with advantage ; but ibis requires considerable courage t for as soon as it can erect itself again, the assailant rous the greatest risk of being bitten. Often, too, it is so bold, as to follow its enemy by leaps and bounds, instead of fleeing from him ; and it does not cease the pursuit till iU revenge is glutted. In iu erect position it is so much tbe more formidable, be - cruse it is as high as a man, can even bite a person upon horseback. M. Morreau de Jonnes was once riding through a wood, when his horse reared ; and when the rider looked round to dis cover the cause of the animal's terror, he perceived a Fer de lance viper standing quite erect in a bush of bamboo; and heard it rms several times. He would have fired at it witn nis pistoi, but the affrighted horse drew back to ungovernably, that be was obliged to look about for somebody to bold him. He now espied at some distance, negro upon the ground, wallowing in his blood, and cutting with a Hunt knife the flesh from the wound occasioned by the bite of the same viper. When the autnor acquaiuicu ram with his intention or killing the serpent, ne earnestly opposed it, as be wi - hed to take it alise, and make use of it for his cure, according to the superstitious notion oftlie negroes, lie presently rose, cut some banes, made a soars with them, and then concealing himself behind the lush, near tbe viper, he attracted its attention by a low whistliug noise, and suddenly throwing a noose over the animal, drew it tight, and secured his euemy. M. Morreau saw this negro a twelve month afterwards, but he had not perfectly recovered the use of the limb bitten by the viper. The negroes persecute these vipers with the greatest acrimony. When they have killed one, they cut off its head, and bury it deep in the earth, that no mischief may be doue by the f.ingi, which are dangerous alter the death of the animal. Men and beests shun this formidable reptile ; the birds manifest the same antipathy for that as they do lor owls in Europe, and small one of the loria kind, even gives warning by its cry, that a riper is at baud.
