CULTURE OF THE MULBERRY
Wc are gratified to perceive that those
uho have taken the lead in this business,
are beginning to reap a rich reward for
l;,eir enterprise and industry. In some of
J!e Northern Slates the experiment has
ten made, and the result proves satisfac
!)ll!y that the silk culture in this country
jsnot only practicable, but may become
'j'pMy profitable; and many are turning
l"r attention to it. This has caused a
freal de,nal fur the Mulberry Tree.
Heavy orders from the North have been
Reived in this State. The Editor of this
Paper is authorised to contract for twenty

The Portsmouth Times states that lovv

our State Legislature would open their

our State, by an act to offer Stale premi
ums, as some Noithern States have done.
I should regret that the Northern Slates
should far outstrip the Southern, or our
State in particular; which I am confident is
as well (if not better) fitted by climnte and
soil for silk culture as any Stale in the
Union, not to say any part of the world.

competent to judge) the best kind of Mul

ture should appreciate the great advan
tage to our Slate of pulling her "ahead"
in the silk culture, we may confidently an
licipate that in a few years only, this cul
lure will take the place of cotton now
scarcely paying cost of raising."

Land Sliding in Vicksburg. The
Natcluz Free Trader of the 25th inst.
(says the New Orleans Commercial Bul

lanche or sinking of the earth on the mar
gin of the landing at Vicksburg, which
threatens serious damage to the front street
of that city. Deep rents in the earth, pa
rallel to the river, were found to have been
made as high up as Washington street,
nearly opposite to the site of the late Pinc-
kard Hotel, commencing near the bottom!
of Maine street, and running southwardly
as far as the railway.
The large warehouse owned by Messrs.

by such a speedy removal. Several other
houses are swerving from their perpendicu

Progress of the Jirts. 1 83 1, a Steam
Press was manufactured in England,
whick struck ofl one thousand printed
sheets in an hour. This was thought at
that time, to be the perfection of the art,
and was so announced. But we recently
saw a Press at work in the Oflice of the
National Intelligencer, which struck ofl"
'2500 sheets within the hour; and a late
New York Courier and Enquirer, states
that that paper is printed on a Press which
strikes oil six thousand sheets an hour.
The press is capable of working seven
thousand an hour. It requires the atten
dance of ten persons, and is the fastest
printing press in the world. This would
really seem the "perfection of the art,"
when ii is stated that, with the Presses now
in common use in country Offices, 250
sheets, one hour with another, is consid
ered good work.
Sub-J!arine Armor. This is no hoax,
bit a teal, new and imported invention!
In a brief notice of it, a short time ago,
we ascribed it to the ingenuity of the "uni
versal Yankee nation," but we were mis
taken as to its origin; and we thank our
esteemed friends of the New hern Specta
tor for correcting the error. They state
that "the invention is of English origin,
and the person who has brought it into no
tice in New Yoik is Capt. Wm. Taylor,
a native of Newbern." Capt. T. now re
sides in the city of New York, where he
has formed a company, called the "Sub
Marine Armor Company,'" which has been
incorporated by the Legislature of the
Slate of New York, with a capital of $200,
000. North Carolina has produced many
men of genius and enterprize, who have
been driven, by the waul of public spirit
at home, to seek their fortunes in distant
ands, where they have received due en
couragement, and arisen to eminence and
usefulness. How long will our good old
mother lay this necessity upon her sons?
How long will she wear the poppy upon
her brow? How long will she yield her
energies to its deadening influence? Our
love for our native Slate will excuse this
digression. We want to see her up and
doing; we want to see her territory im
proved, her resources developed, her
means husbanded, her industrious citizens
rewarded, and her talented sons promoted.
We are indebted to the politeness of a
member of this company for a neat pam
phlet copy of their charter, to which are
subjoined several editorial notices of the
apparatus; from which we gather the fol
lowing interesting particulars :
The Sub-marine Armor is a hollow fig
ure resembling the human body and limbs,
but of much greater breadth, composed of
webbing, coated w ill) gum ealstic, stretch
ed over iron rings and plates. A kind of
lantern, with a thick semi-cylinder of
glass in front, serves for the head. The
sub-marine workman gets into this figure,
and is made to sink in the water by the
help of weights, where he may traverse

tie is supplied with air for the purpose of
respiraiion by a long flexible tube coated
with India rubber, which entets the ma
-hmeiu which he is enclosed. Into this
tube fresh air is forced from time to time
by the help of a bellows with a valve, and
alter fbeiog breathed, it escapes through
ihe water by a tube in the lower part "ul
thefigiiie. A man can imve about in it
under water with almost as much facility
as he could on dry land, and remain there
for almost an indefinite period. The use
and design of this armor, it will readily be
perceived, is to gather treasures from the
"vasty deep;" and, verily, old ocean will
now have to give up
'.Many a gem of purest ray serene"
that has been hid for ages upon ages in her
"dark, nnfiihomed caves:" For its vir
tues have already been sufficiently tested.
The wreck of the Bristol has been visited
by men in this armor, and some thousands
of dollars in value rescued from it.
Among tise articles recovered, were thirty
tons of rail road iron, and five tons of cast
steel. This armor may not only be used
in recovering from the ocean lost treasures,
but it will be of incalculable advantage in
the pearl fishery, and in the surveys, ex
aminatiuns and improvements in the chan
nels of rivers, harbors, he. The com
pany, we are . glad to learn, are going
ahead bravely. They would do well to
send an expedition to the coast of North
Carolina. Millions of dollars lie buried

Destruction of the Natives. The Rev.
Artem is Bishop, a missionary, says in the
Hawaiian Spectator, printed at the Sand
wich Islands, that in 50 years in conse
quence of the destructive t fleets of while
intercourse and civihz ilion, tvery vestige
of aboriginal blood will have been extin
guished in that groupo. A pretty candid
confession! So much for the tender dis
interested caresses of those w ho would en
graft calvinistic metaphysics upon the rude
untutored mind of the savage, that withers
at the touch of these dark abstractions, and
finally falls a victim to the intemperate use
of liquors and other vices of w hiles intro
duced by whale and other ships touching
at that groupe. At present, the havoc has
been so great that not more than one in
four of the families now existing, have
children of their own alive.
The Editor defies the missionaries to
show that their conduct has not been most
disastrous to the Islanders. He will go
any where to argue the point, either to the
snow capp'd "summit of Mauna Loa, or
to the volcanic crater of Hawaii."

Frightful Affair. Last evening about
dark, as the brigades were returning fiom
Harlem to this city along the Third avenue,
the third regiment being in advance, they
were met by a cartman named Michael
Healey, half drunk, driving a very spirited
horse in a cart; when first seen, at a gentle
pace. When, however, within a few rods
of the troops, he took one of the "rungs"
out of the cart and lashed the horse so vio
lently that the animal maddened with pain
rushed into the midst of thed regiment,
through the whole line knocking down
some forty or fifty men, more or less, bruis
ing and wounding a majority of them.
On went the horse and Healey holding the
reins, and, as it is said, maliciously guiding
it through the midst of the troops. After
dashing through the third regiment, they
next came on to the ninth, where more men
were knocked down & bruised. One of the
dragoons was knocked off his horse, and
received so bad a hurt that it is thought his
life is in danger. By thisTime the excite
ment was tremendous, overwhelming, a-

to call upon the men to maintain their dis
cipline they rushed upon the miserable
cartman in such confusion, and so com
pletely o'cr-muslerod by passion, that they
cut and thrust at each other, whereby sev
eral of them were severely injured. It
was reported that two men were thus kill
ed and many others dangerously wounded.

his life, rushed into the midst of this fright

scarcely a spark of life remaining, he hav

Officers Rose and Jones happening to be on
the spot, the poor wretch was given into
their custody, and by them conveyed to
the upper police, where his wounds wero
immediately dressed. He received one
sabre wound on the head that is considered
dangerous. By the last accounts, how
ever, he was still alive.

Durham Cattle. There have been two
extensive sales of these valuable animals
recently in the neighborhood of Lexington,
Kentucky, by Messrs. JNIaslin and Sam
uel Smith. The prices at which the stock
was struck off shows that the demand is
greatly on the increase.
The Lexington Intelligencer says As
examples of the estimation in which the
Durham cattle are held, we will mention
that at the sale of Mr. Samuel Smith, a cow
and sucking calf sold for 2100. Another
at 81350; others S1200, Sl000,&c. The
whole stock of Samuel Smith for between
520,000 and 30,000.

press that the King of the French had put
forth an ordinance, prohibiting the expor

Journal of Commerce of Saturday says, that
the decree alluded to, relates to the borders
of Spain, and its design is only to prevent
the feeding of Don Carlos. The decree is
political entirely, and not founded on any
apprehension about the crops in France.
To preserve Cabbage from JVorms.
A gentleman from North Carolina, who
came to this state last fall, and who saw
the cabbage in every part of the State
tvhere he has been, almost entirely destroj'
ed by worms, has furnished us the follow
ing remedy against these destroying in
sects, which he says, he has fully tested,
and finds never to fail: So soon as the
worms begin to make their appearance,
which you will see by the holes in the
leaves about the heart, take powdered sul
phur, and but it in a gauze bag, and go late
of an evening or early of a morning, before
the dew dries, and shake ibis bag of sulphur
over every cabbage. This will drive the
worms away or entirely destroy them.
Perhaps you will have to perform this ope
ration a second time. This remedy is
simple, try it and you will have good cab
bage. Jamestown Adv.
Cheerfulness in Wives. Boz well re
marks that a cheerful woman may be of
great assistance to her husband in business,
by wearing a cheerful smile continually
upon her countenance. A man's perplexi
ties and gloominess are increased a hun
dred fold when his better half moves about
with a continual scowl upon her brow. A
pleasant, cheerful wife is a rainbow set in
the sky when her husband's mind is tossed
with storms and tempests; but a dissatisfied
and fretful wife in the hour of trouble is
like one of those fiends who delight to tor
ture lost spirits.
Weight of the Human Body. M.
Chaussie dried a human body in an oven,
the original weight of which was 120lbs;
when dry, it was reduced to 12lbs.
Hence the solid matter of the body was
water, as one to nine or one-tenth. From
this it will be seen how great a proportion
the fluids of the body bear to the solids.
Colic in Horses. Horses that are afflic
ted with colic may be speedily relieved by
drenching them with about a quart of com
mon salt and water, made as strong of salt,
as possible. It will also afford relief in cases
of the bolts, and the symptoms of the two
diseases are often so similar that it is not
easy to distinguish them. It is always sa
fest to avoid the administration of medi
cincs, the qualities and powers of which we
ate ignorant. Farmer's Cabinet
