It is for these same speculative nonentities to severely criticise, from their easy chairs the movements nd 'doings, of others. Then their influence would be as baneful as that of the Upas tree. i, - Sac. Republican. "l- 1 JEWISH NEGROES. The Rev. Dr. Phillip, missionary in the north of Africa, gives the following details concerning that country. A Russian Jew, resident at Meadah, gave him information concerning a great number of Israelites inhabiting the oases of Sahara, and dwelling also at Bathhor, liis-Wrabi, Tauggurt, Bousra, Rein Uzab Loquas, etc. ' There arc in each of these places even more. In one place he found six hundred fami- ment, ome. of which were iflorff ancient tniln t But 'this' is not all; other curious dotails reached Dr. Phillip from another source. A Jaw, who had accompanied a German Iravdlor as far as Timbuctuo, found near tho boundary of Bambara a large number of Jewish negroes. Nearly every family among them possesses the law of Moses, written upon parchment. Although tliey speak of tho prophets, they havo not their writings. Their prayers differ from those of other Jews, and are committed to little Iaye3-cf parchment, stitched together, and contain numerous passages derived from the Psalms. . , These Jews haVo mingled some of the superstitions of "oral Law" (which they have not committed to writing,) with those o'f their neigh-ton, the Mabomedans and the heathen. They .enjoy equal liberty with the other subjects of ue .airicau cuieis, anu nave ineir synagogues nd their rabbis. The eiplanat on which they rive of themselves, in connection with their black skin, is this that after the destruction of Jerusalem, at the time of the captivity, some of their ancestors, having neither goods 'nor (and, fled to the desert - The fatigue which they -endured vasM great, that nearly all the females died by the way. The children of Ham received thenwitii kindness, end by inter-mar-ttftgo with their daughters, who were black, ommuaieated their color to their children. These, children became, generation by generation, of a deeper hue,' until no differences of color now distinguish the cbilden of Shem and those of Ham. The form of their features, how-f ever, u very uinerent irom tne negroes around them. t These are highly interesting facts, and create strong desire that these unexplored regions may be speedily opened to intercourse with the civilized world. Access to these ancient manuscript, which are probably older .than any other now extant, would be of great value, in correcting the received Hebrew text, or in throwing light upon doubtful passages.

' f'Well, sir," said the Bey, "what havo you to say to this? is it not full and conclusive ?" "Entirely so, but it does not apply to us. We are not an European power."

Old Mortality. -The! following curious par-graph is from the Dumfries (Scotland) Courier: 'Jerome Bonaparte, tho only surviving brother of the great Napoleon, married, in the United States, a Miss Patterson, who was a grand daughter of one Robert Patterson, better known in Scotland, and indeed over the world, as 'Old Mortality.' 'Old Mortality,' by some accounts, was a native of the parish of Closcburn, Dumfriesshire, though, according toothers, the parish of Hawick claims to be his birth-place. At all events, he settled, before commencing his well-known wanderings! renovating the tombstones of the covenanters, in Morton, the adjoining parish to Closcburn, and married one Elizabeth Gray, tcto was for a considerable time a cookmaid in the 'family of the Kirkpatricks of Closcburn. Old Mortality's "wife, with her chlldren. settled in Balmaclcllan, Kircudbright-8hire ; and the third sop, John, emigrated to America in 1776, and established at Baltimore. Jerome Bonaparte married his daughter. Tru-lyi truth is stranger than fiction 1 This story, with the exception of thd last link, seems sufficiently Touched for by tho researches of the late Mr. Joseph Train, of Castle Douglas, the result of which Sir Walter Scott has embodied in his introduction to 'Old Mortality.' ; ('Library Edition of the Waverlcy Novels,' vol. v., pp. 5-9.) But, though that introduction bears the date of 1829, it makes no allusion to the circumstance that the Miss Elizabeth Patter. son, of New York, whom the future King of Westnhalia married in 1803. was th7U Lof John Patterson, of Baltimore, and the grand uauguwr Ol an luuuiu xvjrupatriCK 8 COOK And now a descendant of the Kirkpatrick's is Empress Eugenie pf France, married to another Bonaparte." 4 j j The Dauphiji Siosj.

The incident is related on the "best authori'y." ; i ' ' 1 When this fellow was in Caredo, being domesticated, he was allowed to run loose in a yard which was enclosed by a mud wall, and entrance through a largo gateway. One day the gate-wav was loft onnn. I A Mexican stood in the gatoway ruminating on the mutability of human affairs and the 'chance for a supply of ci-garitos.

As quick as lightning, tho tiger, who was a playful chap, leaped upon the long-cared visitor, and clung like grim death to his neck and head. The jackass, not wearing spectacles, did not see the origin or manner of this attack on his feelings, lie immediately took it into his head that the Mexican had hit him over the head with a rake, or some other liht inmlenient.

We hear by the last arrivals, that Santa Anna has just left Car-thagena and returned to Mexico, at the request of the successful revolutionists, to take charge of the government. , It is now about two years since this singular personage quitted Jamaica for Carthagena, where ho continued to reside, at a place called Turbaco, near tho canal which unites Carthagena with the river Magdalena. Here the ban ished President-General dwelt with his family, dispensing an agreeable hospitality to strangers, venting his hatred of our country and countrymen, on all; occasions, and enjoying those favorite pursuits which, in Mexico, were wont to divide his time with the cares of government or the command of the army. A late traveller in'New Grenada visited Santa Anna at Turbaco, and, in an interesting letter to the Courrier des Elats Unit, relates some anecdotes of his way of life, llis style was quiet and uniform,; nor did the presence of guests interfere in the least with his daily routine. Every morning, after a cup of coffee, the General mounted his, horse and rode for a con plo of hours. On his return he bathed, and J breakfasted at ton o clock. At noon, precisely, he entered his private cabinet, where he received all who called on business, and "calculated interest so nicely that he might have told you the productive value of a shilling for a quarter of an hour." In fact, it is said that he played the part of an adroit and most successful money leader. After theso daily toils were over, the customary siesta of the country refreshed his jaded senses ; and then, fivo times every week, the neighboring sportsmen flocked to his house wHh their choicest game cocks. The pit was immediately filled. Santa Anna took the scat of honor, to preside over tho gladiatorial poultry, and every main absorbed enormous bets, in which Sauta AxNAwas cummunly a loser of the dollars he had gained in the morniug by bis commercial usury. ;Yet the patient exile lost bis doubloons apparently with as much coolness i as he had made them. Before the six o'clock dinner tho General in dulged again the luxury of a bath ; and when ever his table was honored by the presence of j on ominAnt. vwitpr hn Hid nm. fil n mntt., how hot the weather, to gratify his personal vanity by appearing at table in full military I S ' OJ"- 1 meaies were intro.iuc- costume. llis meals were not only sumptuous eJ in-to ho G1,?te Mr'. t,1a7: a.

TIIE Mill AGE., j A writer from the Arkansas region says that " looking forward in the distance, one could swear that a beautiful lake, surrouuded by tall trees, would soon be reached, where we could en.oamp mlder refreshing shades, and bathe iu water an illusion, however, which was d;ss;Dated. as mile after mile showed an inter- miuablo waste, with no friendly tree to rest the eye upon ; nothing but the droves bt buualo and an occasional antelope, to break in upon the monotony of tho scenery.' We bhould like to see a mirage in the desert. It must be pleasant when one is very thirsty, to see a lake of water, though it be only a cloudy one, looming up in the distance. But it must be terribly unpleasant to be Received thereby, to hang one's hopes of a good flrink on a lake in the clouds to find the refreshing bathing place unsubstantial vapor. A kind of political mirage has deluded a great majiy patriotic people who hang about Albany asd Washington these days. Visions of snug berths' in tho Departments the shadows "f fat slices from the public stalls nice Collectorships with from a modest number of hundred dllars up to generous thousands, annexed capital appointments out of which they were not to be ousted for fjur years at least all these have loomed up, coining so near at times as if they could bo reached the next moment, whim suddenly into the presence would bound some ukase from Secretary Marcv or a herd of riv.il oitice-seckers, formitjable as buffa- los, breaking the spell ai:d obscuring the bright i vision by a more substantial cloud of dust. How like the rising up of a long samly desert before a traveller, who has expected that the next turn Iwoujd reveal to his burning eys a clump of trees, overhanging and nourished by a living stream, must seem those Senators at Albany, who join with the wicked Whigs to vote a return to legislative business whenever tho time for an excutive session arrives. Without a doubt most of them will perish in the de scrt. Their parched lips will never taste the water which the promises of candidates before election caused to loom as large as life and seem immediately at hand. .V. 1". Times.

The fanatics of I the North arrayed themselves ia open rebellion i ug:unsi tne compromise. Webster went .North, and took the field against them. A Whir Secretary of ; the Navy (Gov. Graham) issued an order for tho army and navy to be used, if necessary, to execute the fugitive slave law. A Whig President issued his proclamation warn- j ing all citizens of the consequences of resisting I the laws..

Stanly and Outlaw, and Dockery, backed by the Whig party, in the field defending the Compromise from the attacks of such Democrats as Venable, Green Caldwell, and Thomas Ruflin, who were urged on, "aided and comforted," by the Democratic leaders of the State. Duringfthis period of peril to the Union, what was : the Raleigh Standard doing? Hurraing for the Nashville Convention, and denouncing tho Compromise denouncing Webster and FilE more and Graham denouncing Stanly, Outlaw and Dockery, as enemies of the South denouncing Footo as a renegade Democrat, and Cobb as a traitor to Democracy and lauding McDonald, Quitman and Davis, Venable, Green Caldwell and Thomas Ruflin, as glorious champions of the true Democracy, and Secession, as a " cardinal principle of the Democratic faith " Yet nowj this same Raleigh Standard coolly talks about the Compromise being a Democrat ic measure and the flag of the Union waving over a united people ; and on the 5th of March the day after Fillmore had gone out of office' andPiercelhad gonein, the Standard conrat nlates the people on having good laws, and honest, patriotic rulers ! Whon in thn estimation of the Standard, did the Con) promise measures become t'good laws ?. If they were "schemes of spoliation and;? plunder", in 1851,!what makes them "gobd'Anow ? If 4h-Standard has repemteiof itscourse and Vriltajxso, w will give Jt credit therefor ; but it must not talk about tho compromise being a Democratic measure, without being reminded of its misdeedi hi tho premises. 2Vr. 5.

On his itour through the South ex-Presi- (lout FilliTiorn iwill o rpppivnil with the utmost kindness and ittention ; foi, in no section of the country bus his administration of cublic affairs been more generally approved. In tbe great trial when a weak course or a false step on the part of the President might .have jeoparded the exis tence of the Uaion, Mr. i uluiore stood nrm, anu gave his signature to the Compromise measures, and thus sffcuied tho riirhts of th South. Com ing from the free States, some persons feared that he would not havo the nerve to approve the fusritive slive law. in onnosition to the gen eral feeling of tho pooplo of his State. But he looked beyond! local efiects and personal considerations, and performed his duty as a patriot, regardless of the effect which it might have upon his own popularity. After a faithful administration of public affairs, he now retires to private life. Hiss tonr to the South will enable him to seo and judgo for himself on the subject of existing slavery ; and we venture to predict, that ho will return strengthened in tho conviction that the institution of slavery is not incompatible with the happiness of the African raco. i Bait. Clipper. Gen. Soott. An exchange paper, referring to the refusal of the late Congress to jfcass the bill to create tjhe office of Lieutenant General, says, "General Scott is the only officer whi fought in Mexico that returned home unrewarded for his exploits. And more than this, tha country owes him atowment, as well as reward. On the scene of Ms triumphs he was subjected to ignominious treatment, deprived of his command, brought to trial before his inferiors, humiliated in "th4 presence of the enemy, whose capital he had, won by his valor, and whose hearts he had gained by his magnanimity. We did hope fcliat this great wrong would ere now havo been recompensed; but it - has not, and we press it upon the attention of the incoming- Administration. Republics ought not to be ungrateful, because it is their policy to bestow littlo besides gratitude." : Increased .ai.aiue.s. T composed of a majority of 10 last Congress was "retrenchment and reform" members, pledged to reform abuses and to conhuo expenditures within tho most eeotio mical limits and yet they raised the compensation of certain foreign ministers from nine to twenty thousand dollars increased the salaries of the several! Secretaries from six to eight thousand dollars ; of the Vice President from five to eight thousand dollars, besides voting extra compoiistition to the pngc-a and other persons employed! by Cungress, amounting in the aggregate to some twenty or thirty thousand dollars. And these members will return to their constituents, to renew their pledges in favor of " retrenchment anl reform."

Mc'.'ann was 'recently rescued from a watery grave in the Mississippi river by one of his negro men, who.jat the peril of hisowii life, swam out to him, seized him by his hair, and brought him to a skiff, an which he succeeded in placing him. A New Hampshire farmer, going to a parish meeting, met Jus minister, ana told him that his society thoflght of increasing his salary. "I beg you not tothink of such a thing," said the minister, '"for t is about as much business to collect my present salary as I wish to attend to; if it should ba increased I should be obliged to devote my whole tiuia to collecting it. f"" Captain Denham, an Englishman, has lately sounded, in the South Atlantic, a depth of 8J miles.
