A fi'w days ago ihe National lutelligen fr hid some sensible remarks on the snb- j' t of ed'niiig a piper. One idea express e his frequently struck us with great " lie. Many people estimate the ability i a newspaper, and the industry and tal- nisof its editor, by the variety and nuan- c.i- . . . .. . "j i editorial matter winch il contains. "iliiiiU can be more fallacious. It is ,f,"i;)ira(ivelv an easy task for a frothy Ur'!' r i:i pour out, daily columns of words; Y'r.Is, upon any and all subjects. His . 1 le-is may flow in "one weak, washy, ever Idling fl K)d." and his command of lan- pane may enable him to siring them lo- . P'lher lik.' bunches of onions; and yet his Pper may be a meager and poor concern. i ut what is the labor, the toil of such a 'miMvlio displays his "leading mailer" ever so largely, to that imposed upon the judicious, well informed editor, who exe-r 11ps his vocation with an hourly consci- 1 O'isness of its responsibilities and its du- ,ltJS and devotes himself to the conduct of '' piper with the same care and assiduity I mat a sensible lawyer bestows upon a suit, or a humane physician upon a patient ; wu!mnt regard to show or display!

Egyptian .Mummus. Mr." Buikinbam gives ii as his opinion lhat dure are not less than one hundred millions of mommies entombed in Egypt; and he describes ihree singular uses thai are now made ol them. For fuel. The peasantry of Kgypt pro cure, them,' break them in pieces, and use (hem lor fuel and as they have liille or no wood, those dried human bodies serve ihem in its stead. The resinous matter and spices which were used in embalming ihem, render them quite inflammable, and ihe odor which is given oul at ihe period of burning, is said to be quite delightful. For Mcdiral purposes. In mot of Le bodies there is found solid portions of ihe bitumen, or resinous drug, which was used in embalming. This is taken out of the bodies and sold in large quantities to merchants ai Cano and from thence u is sent to Portugal, Italy , France and Eng land even, where it is pulverized by the apothecaiies, done up in small papers, and sold as a mosl excellent drug to cure in ward bruises. And for this purpose hun dreds of pounds of this stuff is eatt u every year, taken from the inside cf Egyptian mummies. The other use made of ihem is, for paint ing. A celebrated painter in London in formed Mr. Buckinham thai the backbone of an Egyptian mummy, when it was ground sufiii ientiy fine, made the most ex cellent brown color of any maleiial Know n. Among ihe ancient Egyptians, the piac lice of embalming was universal. And .Moses informs us, lhat Jacob and Joseph were embalmed according to the at cient custom. For its prevalence among the Egyptians, Mr. Buckinham gives the fol lowing reason. They believed in the transmigration of ti e soul: and lhat after the soul left ihe body and had finished us transmigration, lhat is, after it had lived in the bodies of the cat, dog, monkey, ox, or what not, ai the end of ihree thou-oi d years, it would return and re-orenpy us first body, provided it should be found in a suitably state of preservation. And to preserve the body, fo lhat il might be a fit receptacle for the soul al the end ol the three thousand Jears, it was embalmed and slowed away in the large sabtf rrane ous vaults which abounded in lhat couniry.

OThe cotton crops in Mississippi are said lo be in a promising condition, not withstanding the late long drought.
