The dull quadrille has grows still duller, That antidote to all flirtation; The rooms are every Moment fuller.

But now the sadden glimpse of morning Shows the dear rnidaight's depredations; The belles, like frighted doves, take warning. No lime for love and long orations.

This certaiuly would show a degree of heat very great for a man to bear, but some persons were inclined to suppose, that while M. Chabert was shut in the oven he might have taken the liberty of placing the thermometer beside the beef steaks namely, on the burning cinders. It is also to be observed, that he did not breathe the at mosphere of the oven, but a long tin tube conducted to him the fresh and cooling air of the room. But, whatever doubt may exist with respect to the heat of the oven, we certainly feel it to be nothing but jus tice to M. Chabert to state, that as far as we could observe, and we watched him pretty sharply, he did actually swallow the phosphorus which was given him . This certaialy is a most extraordinary circum stance, and will, doubtless, lead to much inquiry in the medical world. Reflection on Divine Providence. Those unforeseen accidents which so often .fHscellanj?. THE "FIRE KING." Last Saturday we saw M. Chaberf, the ' Fire Kinp," as he styles himsefi, exhibit his various and wonderful experiments at the Argyll Rooms. On entering the apartment where he performs, wo found him busily employed in warming the oven in which he was to be shut up during the time necessary for some dishes of beefsteaks being cooked in it. The oven is built of oricks, tias a large iron odor, ZvA ' enough for a full-grown man to stand upright in it, and is about two or three yards wide. It is raised from the floor by pillars, nd is heated by means of lighted faggots tnit Ar anon as thf9 fan wots 1,14 a T w were consumed, M. Chabert, raked out the ashes as f?r as the door, and then invited 4hj spectators to mount a ladder and be themselves convinced of the heat of the oven; but it will be easily conceived, that while a large quantity of red-hot cinders was burning t the mouth, the heat felt under such circumstances was very intense. After those of the company who chose had ascended the Udder, with a view to obtain personal experience of the heat of the oven, M. Chabert removed the cinders away, casting, however, a small portion of them back again into the oven, as it were, accidentally, but, as we thought, purposely. Then, leaving the oven to cool, h proceeded to perform the astonishing feat of swallowing poison, which it stems he possesses , by the use of antidotes, the faculty of taking without injury to himself. A gentleman of the company requested him to take oxalic acid, which he excused himself from, on the plea that he had not prepared himself against poisons of that class. He was prepared, however, to take any quantity whatever of phosphorus. Ac cordingly phosphorus was given him, the Genuineness ol which was made manliest by its igniting by friction a piece of paper, and by burning on water, lie held his hinds behind him while the phosphorus v:i nmirp.d down his throat like a jzh'ss of water. In this there appeared to be no de ccption, and the "Fire King, m order to show that the phosphorus remained no vhre ronrealed about his teeth or under his tongue, submitted his mouth, in which he held a filming bit of link, to the exatm nation of the company. This experiment, we are bound to say, appeared to be fairly performed. The next thing which M. Chabert did was to drink some oil heated to 320 degrees, lu swallowing tne til lie took car that the spoon which contained ! it uhould not touch his tongue or his lip?, by holding it firmly between his teeth. The spoon had been made so hot, by contract with the oil, as to prevent any person handling; it. The experimentalist then amused the company by exposing the tricks reported to by common conjurors to deceive their spectators, to practice which he declared himself to h.3 above. His, ho declared, was no ordinary exhibition: what he did, no one else could do! At length the time came for going into the oven, and cooking tho beefsteaks, and he left the room to put on his anti-caloric dress. In this manner about an hour had been spent, durit!" all which time the oven was cool ing by the help of great draughts of air, which rushed into the room from every window. M. Chabert soon relumed, muffled up in a loose great coat, and taking the covered dishes ,vvhich contained the beefs ieaks, he put them into the ovn, pla- conlrol the lot of men, constitute a super stratum in the system of human affairs, wherein, peculiarly, the Divine Providence holds empire for the accomplishment of its special purrwses. It is from this hidden and me.Yiiausumo nunc ot chances, chan ces, as wc must call thern, that the gover nor cf the world draws, with unfathomable skill, the materials of his dispensations towards each individual of mankind. The world of nature ailbrds no instances of com plicated and exact contrivance comparable to that which so arranges the vast chacs of contingencies as to produce, with unerring precision, a special order of events to every individual of the human family. Amid the whirl of myriads of fortuities, the means are selected and combined for con structing as many independent machine ris of moral discipline as there are moral agents in the world ; and each apparatus is at once complete in itself, and complete as a part of a universal movement. If the special intentions of Providence towards individuals be effected by the aid of supernatural interpositions, the power and presence of the Supreme Disposer might, indeed, be more strikingly displayed.buthis skill much less. And herein especially is manifested the perfection of the divine wisdom, that the most surprising conjunctions of events are brought about by the simplest means, and in a manner that is perfectly in harmony with the ordinary course of human affair.1?. This is, in fact, the meat miracle of Providence that no miracles are need ed to accomplish its purposes. Countless series of events are travelling on from re mote quarters towards the same point, and each series moves in the beaten track of ordinary occurrences ; but their intersection at the very moment in which they meet, shall serve, perhaps, to give a new direction to the affairs of an empire. The materials of the machinery of Providence are all of ordinary quality; but their combination displays nothing less than infinite skill. History of Enthusiasm. E. 2 AJ1HOIT AS the honor respectfully to inform the public of Pittsburgh and its vicinity, that he ha3 just arrived in this city, aad is the bearer ef the celebrated and invaluable LOADSTONE FILES for the radical care of warts and corns on the feet. This instrument is sanctioned by the mest emi nent Medieal men on the Continent, invented by the celebrated Dr. Waller, physician le the King ef Sweden. This highly approved of instrument consists of a chemical preparation fram a asineral substance, Jeuad in the Alps ot Switzerland, wiu which any one can remove, with aase and safety, the most inveterate corn, by tke simple process of a slight rubbing, according to tbe dirsaUons, which will afford instantaneous relief to sufferers, however great may be their pains, and saptisede the necsiuity ot cutting, its construction is 1 a rats re that no fear need be apprehended for the surrounding flesh, but may be freely used on the softest skin, without ever feeling the slightest pain er inconvenience. If Mr. Aaroa was the possessor of the files only, he could not warrant the cure, bit as it has never failed to effect a cure, wherever it has been tried, by being applied according to the directioss, it may be warranted with the utmost confidence. As Mr. Aaron's stay in this city will be limited, he has appointed Messrs. Avery & Co. corners of V ood and becond, and Market and i ourth streets, his general agents, and empowered them to treat with other persons desireus of vending the same, who will be supplied by the agents, free of postage. Price of each file, 50 cU.; 4 per dozen, and $42 per gross. October 9, 1629. 6t BUILDING LOTS PROCLAMATION. ! gene kUr m and bv an act of the gercrl ai.

AN invitation to take contracts is now offered to persons disposed to become Road or Bridge makers, for exeeating the remainder of the line of Turnpike from Charleston, on Kanawha, to the mouth of Big Sand river; a distance of about sixty miles. Tbe appropriation of FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS will be disbursed to undertakers as fast as the pro-grass of the work will authorize it. All the work upon the Road and Bridges will be required to be esecuted according to the designs, plans, and specifications of the Principal Engineer: and for the information of the bidders, they will be submitted for their inspection at the time of letting. The location will be as near a horizontal line as the inequalities of the ground will permit; but in ino place to exceed 5 deg. of acclivity or declivity, The law contemplates the Road to be opened sixty-six feet wide, with a carriage way in the centre of twenty-two feet width, perfectly graded and thrown up, or a convexity forming an elevation in the middle of one twenty-fourth part of its width, except along steep hill side cuttings, where the road will be required to incline inward to the hill, without any convexity. Where the ground approaches a level, tho sido or Sum-aur Roads will fe required to be well smoothed, and all the small timber grubbed at lent eighteen feet wide on each ?ui? of the carnage way. To pursuits familiar with that description of labor required for die construction afearih Turnpikes, the present line holds out flattering prospects. Tbe character of the ground over which it passes id well adapted for the easy operation of the Plough aud Scraper, and it is believed (with the exception of a short piece of Road near Charleston) very halt1, ifany blasting will be le-quircd. Individuals wishing to contract for erecting the Bridges, or making the whole or part of the Road, are invited to eiaminc the lice of location, with the several Bridge sites, previous to thu first Monday in November next. To give every facility of information to bidders, the Superintendent will meet them at the month of Big Pandy, on Friday, tho 20th of October, and show the line eestward as far as the location may extend. At Barbuursville, the Seat of Justice for Cabell county, Va., the Superintendent will attend on Monday, tiic second day of November, when end where sealed proposals vviil be received for the exeeutiou of tbe entire work, and if approved, contracts entered into with the successful bidders.
