The Courier des Etats Unis relates a story
of a jperson, who being in indignant circumstan
ces "at Paris, was attacked with a chronic com
plaint, and was advised by his Phisician to take
moderate exercise daily, such for instance, as
riding in a carriage. He was further told that
if he neglected to employ such means for his
recovery, his case was hopeless. The poor
fellow was in despair ; he could hardly furnish
himself with the ordinary necessaries of life ; and
how could he afford the luxury of a carriage ?
One day as he was walking with slow and
hesitating steps through the public streets, he
perceived a suite of mourning coaches standing
before , the door of a church. The buriel ser

32 90 paid annually, would secure to his fami'
ly one thousand dollars at his death As the
person increases in age, of course the price of
insurance increases ; $32 90 is at the rate of

By an insurance on the life of a debtor, the
creditor whose hopes are founded on that life
for payment will be able thus to make his debt
secure. A person having an estate for his own
life, may borrow money on such estate by hav
ing his life insured. A salaried officer may ef-
feet a loan in the same manner, (if he can also
insure against a removal from office.) And a
husband, possessed of an estate, which, at the
death of his wife, passes to others, by an insu
rance on her life, may secure the value ofthe
estate to himself and heirs. Nat. Int.

Boston Clubs, We could scarcely have
credited a statement like the following, which
we copy from the Boston Transcript had not
the existence of such clubs been vouched for
in one or two other of the most respectable
Boston journals :
We are credibly informed, that there are
two clubs, consisting of young men and boys
betwegn the ages of 16 and '20 years, who are
regularly organized, hold secret. meetings, and
are distinguished by peculiar badges or desig
nations. The one is called the "Metamora
Club," the other "The Young Bursters;" (clas
sical and appropriate!) the one holds its meet
ing in a certain room in a certain house (which
we will not more minutely describe at present)
in Court street, the other celebrates its orgies
in a certain room, in an, uncertain house, not
so far from Province House Court that the arm
of Justice cannot reach it. j
The members of these clubs assemble with
commendable punctuality, when any thing jis
"on hand,"l and haying drugged themselves
with intoxicating draughts over the gambling
table, sally forth by threes and fours in quest
ol adventures, unprotected females are insulted
and abused, and unsuspecting foot passengers,
it alone and unguarded are knocked down and
trampled upon and put into jeopardy of their
lives. When one party has displayed their
powers by the commission of some gross out
rage against the peace ofthe city, they return
to the " club room," to narrate their chivalrous
deeds, and another is detached on a secdnd ex
pedition. They wear disguises, boast of their
adroitness, and bid defiance to watchmen and
police officers. The members ofthe "Meta
mora Club" wear caps (or did wear them; we
There is at present an extraordinary charac
ter existing in the French capital, who divides
the public attention with Louis Philippe, the
Poles, and the heroes of July. He is named
Chodruc Duclos, and his description and histo

He is a modern Timon. His dress consists
of a few miserable rags, and his beard, which
has not been trimmed for many years, reaches

the galleries of the Palais Royal, oflerinir in
the meanness of his attire, a strange contrast
to the magnificence and splendor of that cele
brated place. Yet this specimen of' wretched
ness was, in former times, a leader of fashion
a man celebrated for his multifarious accom
plishments, remarkable for his beauty, and no
less renowned as a first rate exquisite ! The
history of Chodruc Duclos offers even in this
age of wonders and strange events, one of the
most striking examples of the caprice of for
tune. He is a man of family, and was heir to
a handsome fortune. In his early life he was
recherche to a proverb in his exquisiteism. He
was a good musician and dancer, and an adept
in tne use ol arms. He made himself famous
at Bordeaux, by an adventure at the Theatre.

he lifted the offender in his arms and threw him
from the first tier of boxes into the pit. He
was the intimate friend of the ex-minister Pey-
ronnet, to whom, on more than one occasion,
he proved of escential service. In early life
they were inseparable companions, and made
sundry vows of eternal friendship. During the
supremacy of Bonaparte, Duclos proved him
self one of the most strenuous partizans of the
exiled family. In the advancement of their
cause he exposed himself to the greatest peril,
besides expending upon it every franc of his
large fortune. On the return of Louis XVIII.
to the throne of France, he, with many others,
presented himself to receive the reward of his
services and fidelity to the Royal cause.
His claims however, were disregarded.

inadequate to his merit. Disappointed and in

Serious Accident. On Saturday evening
about 7 o'clock, a most dangerous explosion
took place at Messrs. Morris and Cumings'
Bolivar Foundry, in Anthony street, between
Elm and Centre streets. The workmen were
employed in pouring the molten iron into a large
casting frame, to form an annealing kettle for
Messrs. Phelps & Peck, of about six feet in
depth and of about two and a halk across; about
3000 lbs. ; had been run in when the vent by
some means became choked; the rarification
of the air below the earth (as the casting frame
was buried about six feet,) of course produced
an immediate and tremendous explosion: the
building was shaken almost tor falling, and six
men were injured, five not very severely. Out
of the 3000 lbs. of iron run in, not 100 lbs. can
be found. At the moment of explosion, one of
the workmen was upon the point of raising the
door of the furnace to let out more melted iron,
but the shock prevented him (and most provi
dentially) from doing so, for the explosion
threw two men immediately under the mouth
of the furnace fronif whence thei burning fluid
would have rushed, arwl of course instantly kil
led them; N. Y. Standard.
Among the various plants which nature in
her Canadian wildness produces in profusion,
few have perhaps been considered of less value
than that which by the Canadians is called Cot
tonien Cart loads, nay ship loads of its seed
are blown away by the wind yearly, and yet
that seed has how been ascertained to be conver
tible to a most useful and even important pur
pose. For this discovery the public arc indebt
ed to the observation and perseverance ofthe
lady of Dr. Stewart Chisholm. of Glegary, in
Upper Canada, who resolved upon making the
attempt to spin some of the wild cotton, hereto-'
fore lost to any good purpose. This attempt
has so entirely succeeded, that not only has
Mrs. Chisholm spun a very large quantity of
the material, but has caused it to be wove into
a sort of etoffe most valuable, in this rude cli-
mate, for many purposes, in the habitant's and
cottager's establishment. We have been fa
voured with a piece of the manufactured stuff

Cleanliness. At a public dinner lately given
to a successful candidate for Parliament honor?,
a gentleman observed a person who sat oppo
site use a tooth pick which had just done the
same service to his neighbor. Wishing to
apprise him of his mistake, he said " I beg your
pardon sir, but you are using Mr. 's tooth
pick." "I know I am. By zounds, sir, do yd
think I'm not going to return it?" Somewhat
similar is the anecdote of the Leicestershire
farmer, who had never seen a silver fork. Some
soup was handed to him, and he found that no
spoon was placed at his elbow. Lifting c
fork, and twirling it in his fingers for some
time, he called the waiter, and requested him te
bring 44 a silver spoon without any slits in it.
