M I was in Hyde-Park on .Sunday. It was crowded
w ith fashion, fard Petcrshaw ia the blood of the tla.
lie is the most complete show I ever saw. He wears
large mustachios, a beard or tuft upon his chin, very
biro collar to his shirt, a block cravat tied in a large bow
where the ruffle should be, a white drejts resembling a
carter's frock, and over that a block jemmy coat almost
otf his shoulders, w ith his coat sleeves turned half way
tip his arms his wristbands covering bis bands. He wears
a very small hat, with a very low crown, and a small rim,
just to cover the top of his head, and a boqnet before him
completes this object! lie has a little footman, in white
Tivery, by his aide. He bawl out " Row are you," so loud
4?hat you can hear him almost over the Park. His face is
aiwllow as a pumpkin, lie attracts general attention 1
and whenever he stops, he U surrounded."

THE LEGISLATURE OF GEORGIA
Adjourned on Wednesday, the 20th ultimo ;
previous to which the committee on Banks re
ported and recommended resolutions, of which
the following are the substance :
The 6rst : That the exhibit made by the Stale
Bank, of their affairs and standing, was satisfac
tory, and that no fact came to their knowledge
that ought to impair confidence in the solvency
of that institution, or the management of its pres
ident and directors.
-- The second 1 Directing an annual exhibit from
the president of the state banks located in Savan
nah, Augusta, and Darien, of the standing and
management of each of those institutions, and
their branches, for the twelve months previous
to the first Monday in Oct. in each year, show
ing particularly the amount of "specie in their
vaults, the amount of debts due them, the amount
of t heir issues, the amount of their bills in circu
lation, Jbe amount of deposits, and the largest
amount due and owing by each of said banks.
Tho law giving twenty-five per cent, damages
where the bunks should refuse specie, as it re
gards the United States Bank, has been repealed
during-the) session f)vhich.js almost all that
oukl be done without declaring open hostilities
to the laws of the, general government.

was chosen President of the Bank. The capital
of the Bank is two millions, with the capacity of
being enlarged to three millions. A branch is
established in each District of the State. No
loan can be made to any individual to an amount
greater than two thousand dollars. Notwith-

The Postmaster General issued, some two or
t - - -v - w .
inree years ago, 10 au ueputy fostmasjers, a
standing order, to give notice to the Printer there
of of any newspaper which should remain' in their
offices, respectively , uncalled for, or not taken up,
by the person to whom It should be addressed,
and to state whether the person refused Uo re
'f.cive the paper, or was dead, had removed, and,
icnerJly otkcrvcd by t!ic grntlcmcn tT uhomii
was given, but, hating reason to believe that it
was in some liiManccs neglected, we promised,
in the course of the last summer, if any cte ol
such neglect should come to our knowledge, to
lay it before the Postmaster General, in orderf
that the delinquent might be dealt with accord!
ingly. Such an instance of neglect having oc
curred tt a distant post office not long since, and
the fact being established to the satisfaction of the
Postmaster General, we have the pleasure to
state, thatT)e immediately dlmltted the tJTtndtr

fact, for the information of publishers as well as

went on the bows with the harpoon to receive

under the bowspriu .-.Supposed him to be About
twenty feet longer than the vessel, which is eighty
tons burthen. A light breeze coming up, left
him astern -his head about three or four feet out
of the water. One of the people says, " he ap

CESSATION OF AltMS
In the neighboring fxirtt of South:imrrit u, i an Armistice
for nix montht, between Holh ur arid toritlo.
We do not know that, since the Tivaty of I'cace be
tween the t'nited States and Great Bri'ain, wc have had
as much satinfactioii in announcing any News from abroad,
as that contained in the following' article. Ix:t us hope
that it is the prelude to a permanent pacification.
Enough of blood has flowed; enough of havoc has been
made ; the humanities of life have been already too far
violated in this conflict.. Humanity demanded a cessa
tion of it, and Providence has ordained it. We trust the
negotiations, w hich will follow this suspension of hostili
ties, will, give liberation and repose to the people of
Venezuela and their confederates. Jat. InUl.
FROM L.1GUIR A..... IMPORTANT 7
MtW-TOrtR, JA. 5.
Capt. Cravcroft, of the schooner Tom, who left Ia
guira Dec. 2lst; informs, that on the 16th there was a
general rejoicing at that place and Caraccas, on account
of an urmiUce Laving been concluded fur six month, be
tween Generals Bolivar and Morillo."' Two officers from
Bolivar's army passed through 'Caraccas and Laguira on
the 18th, on their w ay to .Margarita Island and Barcelona,
to give information of the armistice.. Gen. Mojillo liaxl
resigned the command of the Spanish army, and w as sue
ceeded -by Gen. 1-a Torras. T he fonner had arrived at
I'orto Cavello, and w as fitting out the schooner' Morillo
to cany hun home to Spain; and a great number of
officers had prcceedcd.to that plact tQ take. leave of Jjun.
On the 20th December, a Spanish squadron of 3 frigates,
1 brig of 22 gur.-s, 1 ketch of 16 guns, 3 large transports;
and 1 schooner, arrived at Laguira from Cadiz, with
.15,000 stand of arms, and clothing and provisions for the
army. Business was entirely suspended at Laguira.
cr times. The icveral eUtdlitcs nre put on
moveable sockets to be tct by the hand un
derneath these, and covering the wheel-work,
is a dial 14 inches in diameter, with two cir
cles graduated into months and days, and signs
and degrees, to point out the exact situation
of the several planets as they pass over it So
far the machine represents the revolutions of
the primary planets, and constitutes what is
called a Planetarium, There is another por
tion w);uh can lc put on at pleasure represent
ing the various motions of the earth and moon.
This portion answers the purposes of the in
struments, called the Tellurium and Ijtrtarittin.
'Hie globe representing the earth is about an
inch and a half in diameter, and has a general
" map orthTworlcfacltne
revolves round the common centre, or gilt ball,
representing the sun, performs the diurnal ro
ution on .its nxis. which at the same time is
properly Inclincdr and prcsefvts Us 'parallel
ism. "The moon performs her periodical rev
olutions, and has its orbit properly incline 4 Jo
that of the earth. These several movements
are very nearly in their proper times. With
this instrument the various phenomena of the
heavens, such as day and night, different sea
sons, changes of the moon, eclipses, Stc are
at once imitated and explained.' They are
very beautifully exhibited in a darkened room,
a small lamp being substituted for the gilt ball
or sun. -
Although this machine does not represent
the elliptical and unequal movements of the
planets, et it answers rvery purpose of com
mtfmcating general ideasof Astronomy, which
is, in fact, all that can be done by any machine.
The purpose of accurate calculation in Astron
omy can never be obtained by machinery ; but
must be sought in the use of calculated ta
bles. " The workmanship of this instrument will
bear comparison with any English Orrery of
the kind, and reflects great credit on the in
genuity and skill of Mr. W. The price be
ing only from 40 to 50 or 60 dollars, accord
ing to the movements and stile of execution,
puts the instrument within the reach of ordi
nary schools and academies.
We understand that Mr. Willard is about
constructing for Dr. Locke a Cometarium,
which will show the elliptic, eccentric, and
unequal motions of the planets and comets.
This, tngcthei with the portable Orrery just
described, will constitute a very complete
pparatus for illustrating astronomical movc-

An Orrery, calculated by Dr. Locke, has
lately been made by Mr. Aaron vviixard,
of this town, which w6 take the .liberty of no-ticing-especially.
on. account of the impricity
of its movements, the neatness of its work
manship, and the moderate price at which it
may be afforded. This is the third instru
ment of the kind made by Mr. Willard,' and
has been made more complete by having the
diurnal rotation of the earth added to its move
ments. The machinery is made of brass and
steel wheel w ork. ,This instrument is of the
portable kind, the most extreme revolution
being in a circle of about two feet diameter.

Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, represented by
