The people of Michigan Terri tory are about to elect delegates to a Convention which is shortly to be held, to form a Constitution. Cotton seed oil The Mayor and City Council of New Or learns have resolved to light that city with Cotton Seed oil. The Baltimore Patriot remarks "that the extensive experiment that is about to be made of ihe utility of this oil in New Orleans, will test its value, and if it should be found lo possess the advantages ascribed to it, over the oil now in common use, it will, no doubt, enter large ly into the consumption of every family, and prove an immense source of profit to the cotton growing portion of our country. It will in fact, be an addition, to the full amount of the oil, to their wealth, the cotton seed being now almost a useless article.. Pet. Int. A Maniac A short time since, a woman of German de scent was found in the woods in Columbiana county, 0. a raving maniac, with her feet badly fro zen, and entirely naked.

Then i said to be now living at St. Mary's in one of the lower coun ties of Maryland a lady at the age ol 105 years, of whom the follow ing account is given: He men tal faculties ate unimpaired she is in excellent health and spirits rides on horseback as dexttously as a trooper laces in her cor sets attends the toilet punctual ly and what is yet mote sur prising, she is as willing to be married as she was 90 vears ago TJiere's a sweetheart lor u " (iettsburg Star. JVich Doctor. We arc in-j formed that a family by the name; ol ( ash, in the lower end ot thi- county or in the enl-re of Kockinr ham, who are sahj to have be n quite respectable, and in good cit cumstances, had conducted them- selves in so mysterious a manner: for several months, ;i to excite aj good deal of speculation and in-j tetest among their nejghoors During that period, il stems, they had can fully secluded themselves Irom observation. No one was allowed to enter tin ir dwelling, nor could 'hey be seen attending to any of the business of the farm or ot the household. Things re mained in this state until about ten or twelve days ago, when a lew ol their neighbors determined to unravel the mystery. They went to the bouse, and admission being denied at the door, one ol the company was raised on the shoulders of another, so that he could look in tnrough the win-dow;--when a scene was presen ted which induced them at once to force an entrance into the house. A corpse was found lying on a bed in one corner ol the room in a most horrid and dis gusting state of putrefaction. It proved to be the body of Mrs. Cash, who had evidently been dead for weeks, if not mouths. The old man had a pallet in the middle of the floor, the daughter a bed in another corner of the same room; and the son (a young man,) was found up stairs. The stench was overpowering; and it is astonishing that human beings could have survived for so long a time in it. It va ascertained that the woman had died a'out Christmas, and that she had been kept by direction ol a Witch Doctor, (whose name we arc sor ry we have not heard,) tinder tin delusive expectation that she would come to life in a given pe riod. Il is not improbable, too, that a part of the villain's pie script ion was, that the family should not suffer any one to see them in the mean lime, lest his imposition might be discovered. We understand that about a year ago the family took up the notion they were bewitched. .-that their minds became somewhat unset tled, and they of course prepared lo become an easy prey to those scoundrels who designate them selves by Ihe infamous title of Witch Doctors. We believe this is a solution of the whole matter. The health of the family is said to have suffered considerably, and that their minds are in a wretched state. It is presumed that the family must have attended to the busi ness of the farm after night, as they were never seen by day, and their cattle were in fine order, and a large quantity of grain (say about 500 bushels,) was found thrashed out and cleaned up. Siau nl on Va. Spec. The supreme court of Massa chusetts have decided against tht town of Lowell, in ihe action brought against them by Mr. Currier, lor the- injury sustained by him some ti:.oe since, from the neglected state of she road, by which his chaise, in which was ;ilso a young lady, was thrown down a precipice.

The David lirown ha lately been fitted up with nev copper boilers, and her accorn modations are of the first order. The passage and fare to and from New York are $12, and it is sup posed that the run will be made in about 30 hou rs.. J orfull: Beacon. The great foot race. The great trial of human capabilities, in going ten miles within the hour for 1,000, to which o,00 was added, look place yesterday on the Union Course, Long- Island; and we are pleased to stale that the leal was accomplished 12 se conds within ihe time by a native born and bred American farmer, Henry Stannard, ol Killingworth.

Al len and Hall, of Springfield, Mass. have invented what they call a cylinder cannon; upon the cylin der may be placed as many bar rels as is desired, each barrel ca pable of making two discharges a second. It was built for a com pany in Lowell, who have pro cured for it a patent in this coun try and France, and have now an agent in England for ihe purpose of getting it patented there. "It was lo u?," says the Hampden Whig, "altogether a novel piece of machinery, and the idea of a cannon being fired, gun after gun, by an operation like that of a boy turning a grindstone, struck us as strangely singular.'3 Distressing evint. An alarm of fire was given last night about half past 8, at the Eagle Hotel. The fire was in one of the upper rooms. When the apartment was entered, a young gentleman, nam ed Winston, said to be of Will iamsburg, was found lying dead on the floor, supposed to have been suffocated. It seems he had taken into his room a pan of charcoal, which he had permitted to burn, with the door closed, and from the effects of which he died. The fire had communicated l" the lloor, but was soon extinguish ed. Richmond Compiler.

The "Colonization Herald" is the title of a new paper commenc ed at Philadelphia by the Young Men's Colonization Society of Pennsylvania. Its objects are to promote the civilization and chris tianization of Africa by colored emigrants from the United States, and to ameliorate, by all legal and constitutional means, the con dition of ihe African race. We fear their civilization and farther advancement in Africa, much as we applaud the scheme of coloni zation, will prove as abortive and destructive as the efforts of our puritan forefathers and modern missionaries to civilize and chris tianize ihe Aborigines of this country, who are a much superior and more intellectual race than the Ethiopians.

It is needless to say that the impostor was beyond the reach of pursuit. Wheeling Gaz. The Cincinnati JEronaut. The Cincinnati Gazette of the ISth inst., contains an account from Mr. Clayton (who made a balloon ascension from that city on ihe Sth) of his aerial excursion. He took his departure from the amphitheatre at five o'clock, P. M. The wind at first carried him a southeast direction. He rose, he says, to the altitude of two and a half miles, as indicated by his barometer. He passed over Lit tle Miami river, keeping the Ohio river a little at his right. A litlle before six he passed over liatayia. He says he experienced no disagreeable sensation; but has no doubt that al an altitude of three and a half or four miles, owing to the rarety of (he at mosphere, a difficulty in breath ing, and a swelling in the head, is experienced. At twenty-five minutes after six, he had a view of the setting sun; thirty minutes after six he passed over Williams- burg; at seven o'clock over Georgetown; a little before eight, over West Union. The wind now changed a little to ihe south. s At about nine o'clock, he passed a il I tie to ihe lett ot Portsmouth, was enabled to sre, by the light of the moon, Sciota liver, and the different places over which be passed. A litlle beyond Ports mouth, he had a fine view of the iron forge and furnaces, whose JJHF.

It now being very cold, he says he wrapt himself comforta ble and highly delighted with his novel trip, laid down in the bot tom of the car, and in that situa tion di opt to sleep. He was awakened al last by his car strik ing. He landed ai half after two o'clock, in safety, on a mountain 3000 feel above the level of the sea, (according to his barometer) called'Stinson's Knob, in Monroe county, Virginia, from 350 to 4b0 miles from Cincinnati.

Reunion of Flesh offer complete Separation. The Observatore Medico contains a curious and what it affirms to be a well au thenticated case of reunion of the nose, after complete separation. The patient, a woman of ihe tjovrn, had the whole of the soft part of the nose bitten off, by a man. She was immediately carried be fore ihe commissary of police, when ihe nose was dressed. In three hours afterwards, Dr. Car Iizze, who happened to come in,, saw ihe paiient, and entreated that search might be made for the lost nose. This was done, and, two and a half hours afterwards, the mutilated portion was found, contracted, and all covered with j filth. The Doctor, however, washed ihe parts clean, and ap plied the piece, putting in a few paints of suture. The dressings were not removed before the seventh day', when the witnesses obsercd, with great satisfaction, that complete union had taken place. In thirty-seven days, the cicatrix was perfectly consolida ted. The aspect of the nose, how ever, was most disagreeable, from' the color of its tip which presented a livid unhealthy appearance. A solution of nilraie of silver (mod erately strong) was applied to this part, and after the fall of the char, in five days the nose resumed its natural color. ..Boston Med. Jour. American Coffee.
