MfcfSKS. PRINTERS : i'lre debtruo
lion of shetp, as published in your
last paper, extracted from the North
ampton Gazette, arises from an insect
about as large as a honey-bee
There is u t;enus of insects called
by n.ittiralists ttstniH or j;iJ fly. In
this and most other countries they are
very injurious to neat cattle,, hoi ses,
sl eep, deer, and sofne, other animals.
I here are accordingly several sprcif.s
of uY'S kind of inserts, each of which
has its peculiar habits and manners,
according to the animals which it at
tacks. There is one which pierces the
hides of otir neat cattle, m deposit its
eggs, which luithin0 into larvi or
maggots, feed upon the living aninul
and produce ulcers, sickness and death,
rt... . ..., : .t
ik. il.wlj 1 'f, iiiiwtiiti rpiiit.t
deposits its em's cn the hair o the
torse, which are licked 01T by the an
imal and swallowed with its food. The
eggs hatch in the stomach, and are
sonu times so numerous in the form of
l.irva or worni3, that they destroy the
coats of the stomach ami intestines,
iroduce inflammation, and kill the an-
im ti. 1 ncse are tne insects wnicn
roduce the botti in hones.
A third ppecics astrus cvii the grid
V which annoys sheep, deposits its
eggs in the nostrils of that animal, pro
duces disease there, ami frequently de
stroys them. I he blind staggers in
bheep is occasioned by this insect. The
eggs are hatched intfi Lirva (grubs, or
worms, or niaggdtv) which by their
irritation excite inflammation and a
running from the nose. When they
ire numerous the inflammation ex
tends up the membranes of the nose
mt'j the frontal smus of the brain, pro
ducing that vertigo or giddiness which
causes the staggers, and occasions the
death of the animal. The worms,
when hatched from the eggs of the fly,
craw l up the nose ; and in those sheep
which have horns, there is a natural
communication from the nostrils of
the sheep into the cavity of the horns,
and hence the rrubs or maggots are
found there, as the writer hereof has
demonstrated bv dissection.
In the season of the year when the
hecp are attacked by this sprri?s of
;.td-!lv, their instinct naturally leads
them to avoid their enemies. Accor
dinplv Avhen these insects are heard
)tizing about them, sheep frequently
start and run, from no apparent cause,
ut actually to shun them. At such
times a ily (.1 t..is kind will drive
them from one place to another, and
they are observed to hold their noses
to the grouud to shut up the avenues
of approach to their enemy.
With these facts before us, we have
only to watch the enemy, at the season
of his arrival, give him no entrance,
but keep him at bay for a lew weeks,
till this short race is run. We know
of no better remedy than that of cov
ering the nostrils of the sheep with a
list ot gauzy substance, through which
the animal can breathe, and keeping it
ia its place by some adhesive sub
stance. This is the only method that
has suggested itself upon considering
the nature 01 tne case, ana us atten
dant circumstances ; and if it can pos
sibly be done, it is recommended 'to
practical men, as the only plausible
A NIGHT IN NFW YORK.
moMjrtis mw-ioHK advi:ti(.k.
Mghtty promennJes. In London it
is well known that a considerable por-
tion of the inhabitants, particularly th
most depraved, sleep all day, and walk
all night ; hence in no period of the twenty-four
hours are the streets deserted.
We, in New-York, arc a sober set, par
ticularly in the winter. The streets,
of a frosty right, are actually desolate ;
,nd even the watchmen, those vigilant
sriitinels of the ! k, house themselves
comlortably, and take their nap beneath
some porch or p. nihoiiiie, well shelter
ed from the H.'.rtn.
In the S'.i.nnur, however, things
wear a dilT.-rcjit n-,!:.iri.te, and theic
are many who sleep through the heat
of the d-iy, p.nd walk through the tool
of the nigh'. The weary traveller, or

About 2 o'clock on Saturday morn
ing, the neighbours in the vicinity of
Washington Hall, were aroused fror.i
their slumbers by a clamour in the
street, of no inconsiderable violence.
A lady had detected the infidelity of
her husband, which, like a kind consid
erate wife, she was endeavoring f
conceal, ly having him taken to the
The noise made by these conntibijl
ri'Hers awoke all the bachelors in the
neighborhood, who shaking the jfcp
pies from their brows, opl their
white night caps and head Irom their
w indows to take a lesson in the line of
conjugal aiTection. " 0 you ihaef
you varlc! you infidel," said the lady,
with the utmost mildness, and having
a smack of the brogue," have I cotchYi
ye.' how dare you go after another
man s wife, you Villain '. ' fjw nu
clear, said the husband, "consider
where we are." " Don talk tomr,yu
wretch ; you consider every thing but
your poor wife ; but I 6upe cu d yr,
faith and sure, I dogged je, and I
cotch'd ye, you villain as you are, wit'i
another woman." u Now cu ar ;

"you are wrong ; I was bitting t.p wit'i

what a lie," said the lady "'twas a
living woman, I say here watch,
watch oif w ith him ; I llappraragainst
him to-morrow." Our watchmen arrl
in general, very civil creatures, having
at best, a little energy, but a great deal
of curiosity. They are fond of hear
ing particulars, and trying cases iu the
In this instance, after hearing pa
tiently the volubility of the lady, and
her vehement if not affectionate solici
tations to carry her husband to the
watch house, the trusty guardians of the
public peace, not feeling at liberty to
discharge the man, nor fully compe
tent to decide whethtr the public pe:co
had been disturbed, concluded that it
was best to carry them both off.
Order being restored, and folks re
turned to their comfortable mattresses,
a dull half hour craw I'd on interrupted!
only by some early carriages comir.g'
in or going out ot town, or tiic cl.ittir
of feet tripping it over the pavement.
Presently, an amateur of music, thinly
clad, came sauntering along, and fixing;
himself under the window of a house
occupied by a very handsome Ldy,
took the disjointed pircts of a clarinet
from his pocket, which he bcrewed to
gether, and, as Hamlet sys, "he gave
it breath with his mouth," and it dis
coursed, not the most eloquent music ;
on the contrary, it produced a s re..m
as harsh, discordant and violent as a
peacock, or the nightly brayir.g cf a
Spanish jackass. II this vras not dis
turbing the peace, and offending good
taste, as such, deserving municipal cor
rection, I know not what is ad offence
at common law. Those who are ac
customed to have their slumbers gent
lv 'disturbed bv music stealing o'er the
senses wafted with skill and harmony
o'er the nightly breeze, can well im
agine he effect produced by a squeak
ing, squalling, scrramincj instrument,
piercing the night s dull ear. Oe-
casionallv, we have some mad poet
swinging himself along by the light of
the moon, and bellowing lrtli passa
ges from Shaksjuare or Hymn. Somr
limes a song or ballad is mir.crd ionh
in a dolorous style; and, as mcrn
blushes from the eat, the heavy butch
er's cart, the light wagon of the milks
man, the musical nute of the sweep,
and the hum of business, which at ear
ly dav commences, finishes the languid
night, and leaves us unrt freshed, tin
vigorateel. Such arc the charms of a
t it y life ; such is a night, a summer
night, in New-York. Let not ur
southern friends complain j there is vci
deception in it.
