Johnson; will be supported, and its Jackson-like course advocated with sanguine fervency. All the most important and interest ing proceedings of Congress, and the State Legislature, will be reported. Wc shall endeavor to obtain the la test commercial news from the North, and lay before our patn ns with despatch. UV intend to avail ourselves of the advantage of the best publications on the subjects of internal improvement, and agricul ture, and by that means will be able to select a number of essays, which cannot fail, of being useful to all who have the prosperity of their country at heart. We will procure all important and necessary information in Medicine, within our sphere, of country and hospital cases, and give their patho logy and trtatment publicity. A portion of the Scxvola will general ly be devoted to anecdotes, and polite literature; and whiggery blown sky high.

Saturday, Aprt1' iscelianeotfS CASH. Cash ! Cash ! for this we striveJc toil, From morning until night. Some plough the sea & some the soil, Some practice Coke & others Hoyle; On politics some writei And all who wish to cut a dash Must have their pockets crammed with Cash. I offer you my service sir, And my good wishes, too Pray how much are you worth a year? Your pocket is too short, 1 fear,' To help iny projects through: If so, your service is but trash; But I'm your man if you have Cash. Behold those interesting girls, VVho smile divinely sweet Quite good enough for lords or earls; W hose snowy teeth and raven curls Are very hard to beat Indeed the sweetest girls on earth Pray tell me how much Cash they're worth. And love is bargain'd for and sold By rules precise aud narrow: Changed from the god he was of old. His quiver is of burnish'd gold, And silver every arrow And now whene'er he bends his bow, He's apt to lay a fortune low. For Cash we sail the ocean o'er. And many a distant sea The want of Cash condemns the poor, And Cash unbars the prison door, And sets the captive free Stronger than learning of the schools, The destiny of earth, Cash rules. Without it, man but badly fares In all terrestrial things; And when awhile he bravely bears Life's tempest, and its load of cares, And writhes beneath its strife Down to where Cash exerts no power, He sinks like a neglected flower.

HUMORED MUKDER. It is currently rumored about Cumberland, that a most diaboli cal murder was recently commit ted sonrewhere not far from Rains burg, Bedford county, Pa. Kut as the Bedford papers are silent upon the subject, there is room to doubt its correctness. The story runs thus: A gentleman from the West on his way to Philadelphia, with drove of horses, put up for ihe nigbt at a certain house (name not inown and stayed till morning. Heivas treated with respect and attention, and informed the land lord that on his return he would again stop with him. According to nromise. about three weeks since the stranger returned and asked for lodgings but was refu sed! The excuse alleged was, that there was sickness in the fam ily. He was recommended by the landlord to go on to the next house, situate about a mile dis tant. The stranger did so. He requested lodgings for the night, and at first was refused. He was informed that the man of the house was absent, and that there were none but females about the house, (being two daughters.) But up on insisting they at length con sented. Shortly after there were three girls from a neighboring house arrived, and concluded to stay for company that night with the two daughters of the absent landlord. On retiring to bed it appears that the stranger was shown a room up stairs and ow: of the strange girls and one of the daughters occupied the absent fa ther's room down stairs, and the other three girls another room up stairs. ' Thus situated and wrapt in .leep, at a late hour in the night the house was entered by three men. They entered the room of the two young women down stairs and murdered them bv cuttinn- their throats! Thev then nro- ceeded tip stairs to the room of the stranger supposing they had killed the two daughters of the absent parent but were met in a manner they little expected. The , stranger had been awakened bv the noise down stairs, and stood S prepared to meet the assassins. They came to the door, which he immediately opened and shot down the foremost mau. The second then fired at the stranger but missed his aim, and was im-rr mediately shot down himself. The ' third then approached, but seeing , the fate of the two first w as dispo- sed to retire, but the bold stranger followed him and with one or two blows inflicted with a small sword, lie brought him in the. rt The stranger then procured light called for the girls aud proceeded to examine what mis chief had been done. He found the three girls who slept upstairs safe and sound; but those two who slept on the lower floor with their throats cut from ear to ear. Up on examining the bodies of the murderers, it was ascertained that they consisted of the Father and two sons! landlords of the house at which he was refused lodg ings. It is thought that the murderers object was gain that they inten ded killing the girls aud stranger, take what they wanted aud then set fire to and burn the house and the dead bodies. Nosology. Dr. J. Mason War ren, of Boston, is mentioned in the papers ol that city as having performed a feat in the business of nose making, which will probably bring his services into great re quest among that portion of our fellow citizens who have sustained damages in that rather important feature of "facial landscape." Dr. Warren does not pursue the Tali cotian mode of repairing the han dles of people's countenances, but he puts on a man's nose with sin gular "neatness and despatch," nevertheless; and according to the Boston account of the matter, we are not very certain but it would be well enough to employ the Doctor to make new noses for peo ple who happen to have ugly por ticos to the olfactory regions. Ladies with "two pretty black eyes" who are fobbed off by mad ame nature with nothing better than a pug nose, will, of course, employ him to fabricate a more becoming receptacle for rappee, in their declining years, and young fellows who are provided with a protuberance little more symmet rical than a warped shingle, ought by all means, to patronize the professor of nosological manipula tion. Whether Dr. Warren trims down noses happening to have too much amplitude, is a matter not touched upon in the Boston ac count to which we allude, but by that same account it is as clear as amber that he makes a new nose in cases where the necessary smelling machine has been demolished by an accident; for a young man who happened lo have his facial outworks "druv in," as Hackett has it of the dog's tail, employed the doctor lately to remedy the disaster, and if we are to credit the newspaper account of the af fair, the unfortunate sufferer by the dereliction is actually better off than before. He has been provided by Dr. Warren with a nose not only equal to all the calls made upon that organ, but really tn improvement upon the original proboscis.

Wil liam street and Wall street were quite in a bustle yesterday in ex amining Beale's patent Harness, which dispenses with the use of swingle trees which by a single check rein unharnesses the horse, and costs only half the price of common harness.

Fire from Ashes. The follow ing explanation of the cause of so many accidents resulting from ashes being placed in wooden vessels is by Professor Smith, of New Haven, Conn, and contains information which should be gen erally diffused. in Perhaps there are few people ne- did who are acquainted wiih the fact,Jc that ashes made by burning hardjJ! wood, such as oak, maple, &c. irmly a fire place, and taketi up dry, are! capable of producing spontaneous combustion, simply by receiving a degree of moisture, or by coming." II lUlllClll nun a Cl UUdlU Ulyny j slave, or being exposed lo a veryJon damp atmosphere, his general- I ly believed when fire is kindled by ashes, that it is caused by coals being put away with ihe ashes .j while on fire; but this is a mistake, ii The coals if they were on fire,! when buried in atmospheric air j would soon be extinguished; or ifL they were not, they could not kin-! die a fire when the air was exclu-' ded. The spontaneous combus-iad, lion of ashes proceeds from a very'ar different principle. nra. Hard wood ashes when firstr"g' made, and while they are kept drv. contain a metal called xioias- mm mi sium, which is the basis of potash L This metal is very combustible, and has so strong'an'affinily or at traci'ionfor oxygen, the suppor- ter and causes of combustion, that .. it takes the oxygen from water; the moment it touches ,it, and;j burns with a vivid flame; aud lhejnd product of ibis combustion is pot;; assium saturated with oxygen, or what may be called the oxydeolj .Ccorn potassium.
