If we may believe Papus of Alexandria, a wri - " . terof the fourth ceutury, Archimedes made a ( sphere of gla, which represented the motions, . instance ana proportions of the heavenly bodies Houses, according to Seneca, were finished , with squares of glass. Vopiicut tells us, that , iirmus, oneol the tyrants who revolted aji"i Caliienus, had hts whole house covered with pic , ces of glass, joined together by a cemcut. At the theatre of Mr. Scaur us the lower part of the building, called the stage, was of marble, wlulu the middle was oruamcuted with these plates ol glass, and the upiier part with gut cornices . - - Pliny says that Agrippa would uot have t'ui!c J . to have had the apartments of his baths orna - mealed with gtaa, if the cuttom had at that time he'll prevalent. or su Jmt hoJ ba tru - fefed (max the stage to other buildings.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 13. CinnirtinU. 1 be llar$vrd Couren!iun,n authorised by the Toleration party in Connecti cut, is to assemble at the oJ4 t - ontenifmrotm, oo the last Wednesday of this month, for the purpose of framing ft new" constitution of civil rovcroment. Connecticut, it ii well known, has kept " the even tenor of her way," and jogged on in her tteady habi'.t, ever eince the became a member of the Confederacy, under the old char ter, granted by King Charle a charter framed by the people themselves, and decidedly more dtmoeralie than the constitution of any State in the Ution. This charter, containing the funda - mental principles of the government, has hitherto answered the purpoe very well, and while ad ministered by federalists, the people were contented, prosperous and happy. But a revolution came the republicans, utycr the name 01 Jie - ralionistt, gained the ascedency after a struggle thirty years and now, nothing would do but hey miut have a kv constitution. The truth was the new republican rulers were no sooner seated snugly in power, than they found thai this relic of monarchy this odious, aristocrati - tjranuical charter, was too democratic .' Yes, reader, loo democratic even for deinotrats themselves ! Nothing, theu, as we said bo wouu answer, hut thv tnu,t have a con titlftiivnin.t fea I hjtn fiutill v hnnml u.litrh urmitil " ""J J ...... enable the pew rulers, to hold a tighter rem and secure to tliem their i.laces in iw.rnet.iit v ' r 1 j lie VeoV were u.ercupon commanaeu lonn. wiin to elect delegates to prepare the new ta bile (1f ivvirnm..iit Itnt uW h,ui kWi ! . , ... . . the s glit of man ! me suui 01 inan : now uncertain anu luiue are human calculations ! But yesterday, us it were, the heart of every democratic office - holder and expectant in Connecticut, was heating high with exultation. Joy and gUd - ness reigned with the party throughout the atate . and the eves of every ToleraUonut sparkled Lkc the icy gems cf a January morn ing. To - day, all their prospec'.s, their dreams of piwer and wealth, a: e 61asted. Tlie eup of felicity, which they already held to their lips in expectancy, was suddenly dashed in pie ce '.Contrary to their most sanguine eipcc - taiions, the sovereign people, having recover cd from the temporary fi enzy and delirium of a contested election, returned to thrir " first love," and embraced their tteadj fcbiti. In - taiut tj ilntmr wild mini iriskniSrry de magogues the political empiricks and nuish - rooms who sought to demolish the most perfect political edifice in existence, they went so - bcrly to work, ami made choice of some of the wisest, most experienced and learned sages and statesmen la be found in the uuioa.' The fulerationists were appalled confounded. Reason, they found, had resumed hsrefipire; and thry well knew that before such a phalanx of enlightened and patriotic statesmen as will compose the federal puj of the convention the dogmas" and crudities of speculative smu'.tereis would shrink into nonentity." Such is the present s'tuatian of afl' - irs in Connecticut , and we have everv reason to be lieve, that reli.iion and Patriotism. will iide tlie slorru triumphantly. At all events an 1 strans as ii may appear, the result of the election fir delig ties to tlie con vention, was no sooner known, tli 111 the Tolera tion men themselves began seriously to doubt up on Uie subject.

P . ? From the Alexandria Gaettt,'jg. 11. ' A ktdnapptr cauglU. - - Tb ruulIc will be pleased la hear that the scoundrels who were believed to have stolen a ngro boy on Thursday, have been apprehended, and the principal lodged in prison. The circumstances as far as we can collect them, are briefly these : On the day above meutioued, a man having purchased waler - mclou at one! the wharves, employed the boy to carry it to a boat at some distance, ho being in company. On his reaching the ilace, he was seized by him, and with the aid of another man, secured under one of the seals of the boat, whieh immediately putolf, and was rowed with speed to Washington. Ou arriviug, the boy was tuktn to the residence of one of the kidnappers, and luckcJ up. Being afterwards liberated, under a promise not to go away, he was seen and reoogniredou Saturday by Mr. Thomas W. Uruce, formerly of this town, to whose hu mane interference the owner of the boy is in debted fur his recovery, and the public lor the apprehension of the tui.i'reants. They were immediately lodge d in viil. One of them, how ever, naturally feeling restless from his unpleasant association, with Ibul air and cramped exercise, (very fit stimulants to mental invention !) conceived in a lucky moment that his liberation could be effected by a manoeuvre, not unfre - ducntly resorted to in these degeucrate times by Hum e rogues who disregard tho precept, " honor among thieves ;" and that simply was, to turu tiaie's evidence ! He was accordingly held to bail to appear at the next court, to confront (per haps affront) his accomplice. From the Goshen Patriot, A ug. 1 1 . It is stated in a New - York paper, that butter was selling iu Goahen for H 1 - 2 cents per lb, when it could not be bought in 'ew - ork lor less than 25 cents ; but for ourselves, we have bought a pound iu Go. - hin lor lc?s than 3s. during the season ; and butter - makers would rather keep their butter till fall and send it to Sew - - York, for Is. 9d. or even Is. 6.1. :for it pro bably will not bring more next f.dl ) than to spare their ucighbnurs a little now, at two shillings. It not at all surprising, that persons who hoard up ! their produce lor an extravagant price, shrmu often have to mourn over its depreciated value. frei the Boston IntfUIgenter. Quarantine in the Xrdilerrnnenn3am F. Mau.ony, Ksq. Consul from the Grand Duke of Tuscany, for the New - England states, and residing iu Boston, deserves the highest approbation of the American merchants generally, and of thoie of this capital ia particular, for his successful exertions, iu persuadiug his government to reduce the quaiantine upon vessels which may arrive at the ports,uuder the Tuscan jurisdiction. The oicl chants of Leghorn, we understand, have made repeated representations upon this subject ; but their applications for a reduction of the quarantine have always proved fruitless. Mr. Wan - tony has fortunately convinced his government of the propriety ol tlie measure they have adopted ; and the quarantine upon all vessels, with a ccr - titicate cf health from the consul in Beton, in future, wdl continue ouly ten days. The value these :crvict will be fully realized by the merchant, aiiJ especially felt by those, who after a tedious passage to Leghorn, without a sick indi - ridu.d on boirJ their thip, have been detained 23, 30, aud even i0 days longer, without any communication with the shore thus adding the great expenre of delaying the voyage, tojhel, oilier miseries 01 procrastination.

He was at length with great uitiiculty apprehended by the alderman and watchman.and discovered to be a tery stout black lellow, whom alderman Badger had in the course of his oRicial duties olfcooed, and who it is supposed was breaking into the house for the purpose ol taking his revenge of the magistrate.

A gentleman of this town, lately returned from Europe, took an opportunity, last sprinp, of visiting the spot where thea - mous battle of Waterloo was fought in June 1S15, which .terminated the great European conflict, and was succeeded by the final extinction of Bonaparte's military career. The person who conducted him to the spot, was the same who attended Bonaparte and his staff, as topographical guide, on the memorable 18thof June. He informed that on the bat - lie field (an extensive plain) was raised, the last year, an uncommonly luxurant crop) of wheat and well it might, lor it was fertilized by the blood of 80,000 soldiers, who fell in the sanguinary battle - The gentleman picked up an Kaglc,such as are worn by the French infantry, and two musket halls, which are now in his possession.

It is calculated in tho Washington City fla - eette, that two thousand persons pass from the southern states to the eastern for ihe benefit of the air, iu the summer season, and that each of these persons expends on tho journey 500 dol lars, making in tho whole a million of dollars, in a single season. If this be correct, it will be considered by those who reap the benefit of this expenditure, a tortuitnte'CirrtmisUuce, as far a their profit is conrrrned, that the southern season are hot, and the inhabitants of that part of our country are wealthy.
