Body Recovered. During ' Ihe
Christmas' holidays Samuel Davis, col
ored aged abbut 55 was ; missing, and
he was supposed to have been drowned.
It was known that he had gone up the
North East river for a flat load of wood,
and his batteau was subsequently found
adrift in the river. In the bottom--!
the boat was his pipe and stick. Fri
day his bodv was found about 15 miles
fro this ciiy on the river bank, where
it had been washed up. There were no
marks of violence on his person, but a
handkerchief was tied aroundJiis fore
head as though to relieve headache. It
is thought he was seized with vertigo
or heart disease and fell' out of his boat
and was drowned.
That Exoduster. Tho white chap
who was in this city last week trying
to'Sduce the colored people to emigrate
to Indiana met with no encouragement

and scooted for fields unknown to
lie called on several of the mst icllu"
ential colored preachers of this city,
ostensibly as a book agent, but touched
on the exodus movement, and left cii
culars, &c, with them. They threw
cold water ou his scheme and dampened
his ardor to such an extent that he
thought it w;s hardly worth his while
to remain longer. Perhaps Jie thought
some one might give him a reception
and treat him io a winter suit of tar
and chicken feathers, similar to the one
presented to one of his pals by the col
ored citizens of Ivinstou.

Celluloid is one of the most remark-
able of modern inventions, and bids
fair to be not less extensively or vari-
onsly used than vulcanized rubber. It
is produced, says the Journal of Induslt y,
by mixing gum camphor with a pulp of j
Urun cotton, and subiectinir the combi-
r . a
uation to a high degree of pressure and
heat. The result is a hard product of
extraordinary loughness and elasticity.
It can be made plastic again and molded
into any required form. Any color can
be given to it by the use of coloring
matter during the process of manufac-
ture. The uses to which celluloid is
put arc "numerous, and are constantly
increasing. It is expensively used as a
substitute for ivory, which it resembles
so closely that it is sometimes difficult
to detect the diflerence. It is said to
equal ivory n strength ?and elasticity,
and not to warp or discolor with time.
It has preyed a good material for piano
and organ keys, billiard balls, backs of
brushes, looking glass; frames, handles
tor knives, lorks, umbrellas, and many
other articles. It.is much cheaper than
ivoiy, and is claim. i to be better for
I Uly, auU
decorative purposes. It is a'so used
with much success to imite torto:se

other costly materials. In imitation of
torto"3e shell, it is made into combs,'
napkin nugs, match boxes, card cases,

are made and sold at prices much below
those of the genuine. The same is true
of imitations of malachite and amber.
