Swain, in relation to the va» caocy on the Supreme Court bench, w® have made enquiry on tho stibject, and find that it is not in contemplation to coq. vene the Executive Council. The recent Term of the Court having been suddenly brought to a close bj the death of Chief Justice HBNOEnsox, and the commence, tnent of the neit, not occuring until after tbe Legislature will have been several weeks in session, no necessity exists for any intermediate appointment. It is much to be regretted that the application, which has more than once been made to the Legis* lature, to empower any tteo of the Judges to decide causes, should not have succeeded. The propriety of such an arrangement, i« now made manifest by the great delay of justice which parties must unavoidably en. counter. Although a large number of ca. ses were argued at the late Term, not on« was finally disposed of, it being usual for the Judges to defer the filing of their opioions until the whole business of tho Court ia gone through with. i^. liemarkablc Occvrrence.-^Oa Prldny last, while the workmen were employed in levelling the Rail-Road in Newark, Now Jersey, over a piece of low spungy grountj a short distance south of Market street* between Mulberry street and the river, they discovered a break or crack in tho road which they had previously levelled. Shortly after, an opening presented itself, and the earth began to cave in and sink out of sijjht. Several loads of dirt were thrown in—this also disappeared along with the ground which continued to cave in on every side, until the opening extended about sixty feet east and west, and one hundred and fifty north and south. As tbe earth disap. peared, a body of water presented itself and rose towards the surface. Several thousand loads of dirt have been thrown in, a great portion of which has sunk away, nobody knows where. The hole is now partly filled up on tho north side, but a considerable space still re. mains open where it first appeared. Tho depth or extent of this cavern has not yfit been ascertained. Whilst the work of til. ling up was in progress, it was discovered that the level ground on the east side, covered with stumps and roots of trees, a. bout 60 feet by 100, was rising up and forming a hill: it has now risen several feet in the centre near the hole, and slopes olf gradually in other directions. Large cracks arc to be seen in diSerent parts of thia raised ground. These are the facts: but whether it be a bottomless subterraneous pond of water, op a bed of quicksand, or some other mysteri. ous agent which sucks in and devours such vast quantities of earth, we must leave to tho decision of the more learned advocates of Mr. Symmes’ theory.—Ncvark Engk, W'e have seen a specimen of Cotton ClolJt manufactured by the Merchant’s ('ompsiny of Ihis place, which has been pronounced by good judges to be equal to any thing of lh« kind ever made in this country.

We are pleased to learn that the Cotten Yarns of these two Companies are much sought after, and that whenever they have entered the Noxtiieiir .Markets, they always attained the highest prices.—Petersburg Times. Exhilarating Gas.—During four even» ings of this week, a gentleman called Dr, Coult, exhibited at the old Museum the ef, fects of Nitrous Oxide Gas on the human system. Tho scenes that ensued from in. haling it during the exhibition, beggars all description. Some danced and jumped, o« thers cut up singularly fantastic tricks, but the greater portion of those who inhaled it became extremely pugnacious. Some of these, though placed within a strong enclo. sure, managed to escape from it, and attack and beat unmercifiilly the audience. Ono stmng fellow, who berarr.e on taking it a"! furious IS an enraged lion, sprang over tho euclosure, and drove every soul out of the room into the street, beating two or threo very severely.—Pittsburg Manufacturer.
