The British Com mander applied to them for balls as follows: ’• We waul balls, will you sell them ?” The answer wan —“ Send us powder, and we’ll give them to you.” The aggregate amount of exportations of cotton linen and woolen manufactures from Great Britain I'or 1846 was less by $2419 485. than in 1845 and if the people ofthe United States are true to themselves it will continue to liminish in a corresponding ratio.

We have ourselves given a single tn * halfbush el of salt in a season applied to the surface of the ground in tlie spring over an area as wide as the extent of the branches. Tlie tree was in a sickly and enfeebled state and it had the effect of restoring it to a healthy arid luxuriant condition. But we consider this an extreme case, and should not recommend the abundant use of salt every year. ■ Madam ”sad a doctor to an old maid you stand in need of the sun and air.

J. Piu.uw pro moted. General La Vega.—The Courier de* Etats Cni* contains a paragraph in relation to this distinguished Mexican General, which seems to verify the opinion of the “Ancient philosopher, Who had read Alexander over, Andeworc the world, as he could prove Was made ol fighting and of love;” For, according to this authority, it would ap pear. that the gallant Mexican, at the very time he was fighting our countrymen in Mexi co, was himsell subdued by one of our equally irresistible countrywomen.” Says the Courier, speaking of the captured Mexican Generals, “Among them was Gener al l,a \ ega. who. doubtless calling to mind his previous captivity, appeared delighted to return to the United States, and chatted quite gaily with General Scott the very evening of the battle.” “If a certain chronicle is to be believed, which we have reason to think is predicati and on good information, Gen. La Vega goes to New Orleans to recommence a pleasant sweet romance, which Ins release and return hi Mex ico had interrupted, and the denouemet of which seemed postponed to the conclusion of the war. This is the explanation of the resig nation with which lie meets his new captivity.” Gen. La Vega, perhaps, may settle down in New Orleans, and. aft, r having served a suf ficiently long apprenticeship us a citizen ofthe United States, represent Louisiana in Con gress. \\ iiy not ns well as Gen.

Mr. Richard Dunltorne. of Cambridge, on computing the elements of the comet of 1261. found them so similar to those of the comet of 1556 that he was led to the conclusion that tin* two were identical, and that its return might be expected about 1848. Subsequent investigations which have been made by dif ferent astronomers, confirm this conclusion; and there is. therefore, good reason to look for the rc-appearance of tliis comet during the year 1848. although it would not be surpris ing it this event should happen even a year earlier or later than this date. SiHiman's Journal. The Low Postage System.—Tlie low pos i tag * system so violently opposed by Mr. Cave \ Johnson, and a host of the small fry of Demo { craey seems to be operating with decided ruc cess. A comparison ofthe reeeiptsat fifty-five | of the principal offices in the Union during the quarter ending on the 31st March, lslf with the receipts at the same offices during the corresponding period in 1846 shows an in crease of tlie revenues of the Department of a little over seventeen per cent. The increase was greatest nt the Philadelphia office, the receipts of the first quarter in 1547 having ex ceeded those of the first three months in 1846 to the amount of $3,797. The next office on i the list is Baltimo*” o?which ‘he increase was $3,118. Gen. Scott’s Order. Cerro Gordo.— The following L the first paragraph of Gen. Scott's general order before going into battle at Cerro Gordo: “The enemy’s whole line of entrenchim nts and batteries will be attacked in front and at the same time turned early in the day to morrow —probably before 10 o’clock A.
