/L r B,'o. Boykin : It is my pleasure to be
abk to record one of the most extraordinary dis
coveries of the age. A few days a<ro, while
some ox 13ro. Ivi; ke Langford’s negroes were
employed on his plantation near this place, in re
moving some loose stones preparatory to getting
ready Lx blast some rock, these loose stones hav
ing; prevented free access to the main body of
the reck, when suddenly the whole mass fell in,
ami exposed to view a cave about nineteen feet
in length, seventeen iu breadth, and four or five
;?i Tiqith. Bro. L., on entering found the roof |
I amjksides incrusted with stalactites, and a gene- |
; rai -sheet of stalagmite rising irregularly into
boss I**, 1 **, lay beneath his feet. This sheet of sta-
I lagiLite broken through, a rich brown mud was
i< \tm about nine inches in thickness, loamyfor
the%pth of two inches, while the interior was
ratoer s’tliidy. bn this loam, at. all depths, from
the surface-down to the rock, in the midst of the
stalagmitic upper crust, were found bonesof the
following animals; carnivora, —Hyena, bear,
fox and weasel: pachydermota, —rhinoceros and
horse, ruminantia, —ox and stag: rodtntia, —
rabbit, water rat, and mouse; and birds,— raven,
lark, and snipe. The bones and teeth of tlie
hyena were plentiful, while the bones of the re
mainder were comparatively scarce. • There
were three different species of bear, the largest
of which was Cuvier’s “nrsus spelaeus.” Bro.
L., who is, although a plain, blunt farmer, one
of the best versed men in science in the State,
explains this natural phenomenon very satisfac
torily. He says that bethinks it a den of some
ravenous animal; that carcases of large animals
vs®:re drifted into it. 1 will not enter into the
details of the explanation, as Bro. L., intends to
write an article himself on this greatcuriosity,®
for which this conTmunieation is designed simp
ly to prepare the public ear. These wonders of
nature will, I understand, doe presented to the e

YouSg America—Elopement of two Chil
The New York police on Friday received tele
graphic requests from Albany to arrest James
Bayliss, aged 12, and Ellen Shurrer, aged 13
years, who had eloped from that city together.
The Express says:
By diligent exertion they succeeded in dis
covering that the very fast young lady had an
acquaintance living on the Eight avenue, and
supposing that the couple would proceed there,
watched the house and caught them entering
at about six o’clock in the evening. James and
Ellen expressed much surprise at the sudden
turn if affairs, .and did not at all relish the Flo*

were /alien by the officers. The girl said she
had jnojt yet become a wife, though waiting to
be one, and supposed that, for the present she
would have to give up all hopo,---owing to the
“great fuss” her folks had created. Neither
she or “ Jimmey ” had been treated well at
home, and they hardly knew a better course to
pursue than to come on to New York and seek
their fortunes together. Obtaining three dol
lars. they started on* the boat for New York,
hiring a state-room for 31, and having another
81 left. After spending all their money, the
ambitious pair sought out the Eighth avenue ac
quaintance, wiere, as above stated, they were
• arrested. The girl is a bright, intelligent little
athiiPg, quite pretty, but father forward in her
! manners. She speaks with great confidence,
’ and does to be alarmed, apparently fear
ng moi£ for ‘ Jimmey ” than herself*. On Fri
day .he went all over the city looking sos

“ If all leave this State but us, then we will
order an election for all offices, and go and vote
for ourself for Governor. Then we will be
commander in chief of the army and navy of
the State of Mississippi, and also editor and
proprietor of the Brandon Republican. If we
can’t find anybody in the State to read it, we
will issue.it regularly every Thursday morning,
and sit dowy and read it ourself, believing it
the duty of every sensible man to read a good
paper. If we should at any time get too cold,
we will read our tire gating, blood-and-thunder
exchanges on tile. iF%the Democracy should
happen to leave any friends in the
asylum and Penitentiary amlackson, we would
do the best we could with them, and as soon as
practicable, send them on to tl em rejoicing.—
\Ye could easily escape the debts of* the State
by publishing that a vote of the people would
be takciqat a given time to see if* they should
be paid, and then we would go and vote no.—
We would attend to ail the offices in the State
and do very, well at it. If a commissioner at
any time should pass through the State on his
way to ask advice of Old \ irgiuia we would
treat him well, and send by him for some tobac
co. We would read once every week Washing*
ton’s Farewell Address, and Jackson’s Procla

Correspondence of the Cincinnati Gazette.
Mysterious Visitor at®the White House.
Perhaps he is a friend of one who last winter
did so sharp a trick. . At all the leeves for a
month, there was a man dressed in the very
height of fashion. His coat was faultless, hisP
pants unwrinkled, his feet were cased in silk
stockings, and upon them were immaculate
pumps. Ills shirt bosom was a miracle. So
white, so stiff, so beruffled, so curiously plaited.
His hands were hidden by •symmetrical kids?
whose white was just tinged witti a suspicion of
straw color. And when he shook his ambrosial
locks, or waved his elaborate mouchoir, it seem-(
ed as if gales from Araby the Blest filled the
room with their perfume. Great was the mar
vel. Many and loud, and earnest the questions.
“Who was he? When'ce Was he? What was
he ?” Profound and heartfelt the sighs of de
spair, as each f'oung lady received from each
young gallant the abrupt answer, “Don't
know.” Legislators forgot to legislate: three
Southern men sat a whole day in their seat*,
and never said “disunion,” and one Northern
man refraiued for six hours from. v.ayitig Kansas.
‘Fas taken sick; Floyd excluded all visitors,
the Postmaster-General so far Forgot himself as
to remove a Buchanan man and appoint a friend
of Douglas; while J. 8., who is devlish sly,
nodded and whispered confidentially to his New
York friend, J. G. B—another “ Sir William
Gore. Ouseley.” Washington was shaken to the
center, and some of the citizens wrote to Gov.
Wise for protection. He replied in a letter
which has never been published—no ordinary
font being equal to the task.
For three weeks this went on. On the fourth
levee night, a detective, who had been employ
ed to find the name of the stranger, rushed
breathless into the reception room, and whisper
ing “ Fox, New York,” with his living heart,
gavg up at once the secret and the ghost. —
“Fox, New York,” shouted the President to the
bystanders, F<?x,” shouted they to those in
the lobby, qFox, New York” cried out de
lirious young ladies in the east o room, as
gently fainted in the arms of ex.pectant young
men. ® ® ©

“There’s Always Boom up Stairs.” °
A young man who was thinking of studying
law; said to Daniel Webster: “ Air. Webster,
I understand the profession of law is quite lull,
and that there are more lawyers than
ed; do you think there is any chance for me?” ;
“ Ihere is always room np stairs,” was the re
ply—and as true as it was ingenious. Only a
few persons reach the high places, and these arc
always in great demand —“ there’s room enough |
up stairs.” First elass farmers and mechanics,
as well.as physicians, lawyers, etc., always find
plenty of room, plenty of work, and good pay.
Whatever calling you choose, and it matters lit
tle, if it be an honest one, resolve to go into an
upper story; but don,t try to jump there by a
single leap or you may fall disabled. Bather
begin at the bottom of the ladder, and patient-1
ly step upon each round.

Tlie annual message of his Excellency, the
Freo-Soil Governor of New York, informs us
j that “while in twenty years, from 1831 to 1851,
i the population of the States increased only six
-1 ty ‘Mu; per cent., pauperism increased seven
hundred and six p r cent. In 1831, there wus
| one person roleivcd to every one hundred and
t\\ enty inhabitants ; in 1811, One to every thirty
nine; in 1851, one to every twenty-four; and
! in 1850, one to every seventeen.”
The subject is more fully treated in the Ke
port of the Secretary of State, from which it
appears that the entire number of paupers re
lieved ‘thi mahout the State during the year
1858, was 261,155, constituting upon the State
i population of 3,500, a ratio of between 7 and 8
per cent., or one pauper in every 13 of the popu
i lation ot the Empire State, was thrown upon
public charity during tlie past year. The signi
ficance of this f'.ct wiii be better undcrstoo(U
from a comparison of it with the statistics of
Great Britain. During the same year the num
ber of paupers in England and Wales who re
ceived public support, wus 885,000—making a
ratio ot 4 6 10 per cent, upon the
19,045,000. In Scotland, the number of pau
peis was 115,213, or a ratio ot 3 9-10 percent,
upon her population of 3,035,U00. In Ireland
the number was 50,910 or a ratio of only nine

to the world that that unenviable distinction is

j That statistics of pauperism are not collected

the Union, is much to be regretted for the pros
perity and character of the country, and indeed
its safety, are deeply concerned in this matter.
L iitil ot late years was the idea of pauperism,
as a tact nj State or national consequence, ex
clusively associated in the American mind with
certain European countries. We used to imag
s ine that in a land ours, blessed with insti
tutions that leave the wildest scope to individ
ual energy and associated enterprise, and with
the most bountiful lfatural resources of wealth,
there was no danger of the evil taking
root and spreadingany considerable extent.
But the hireling St.'uWs are teaching us another
lesson. crowd? the streets of north

in part, why the South resists so sternly
impudent efforts of northern busy-bodies to im

[ Th% Color of Flowers Promoted by Char
® @ coal.
A French amateur, in the Paris Horticultural
Rt:>;iev* states: “About a year ago, I made a
I bargain for arose bush,.of magnificent growth,
and full of buds. I waited for them to bloom,
j and X.expected roses worthy of such a noble
plant, the praise bestowed upon it by the
I vendor. At length, when it bloomed, all my
j hopes were blasted. The flowers were of a fa
ded color, and I discovered that 1 had only a
middling multiflora, stale colored enough. I
therefore resolved to sacrifice it to some experi
ments which 1 had in view. My attention had
l been captivated with the effects of charcoal , ai
stated in some English publications. I than
.covered the earth (in the pot in which my rose
bush was) about half an inch deep with pulver
ized charcoal. Some days, after, I was aston
ished to see the roses which bloomed, of as fine
a lively rose color as 1 could wish. I determin
ed to repeat the experiment, and therefore,
when the rose-bush had done flowering, I took
oft’ the charcoal and put fresh earth on the pot.
You may conceive that I waited for the next
spring impatiently to see the result of this ex
periment. When it bloomed, the roses were,
.as at first, pale and discolored ; but by applying
the charcoal as before, they soon resumed their
rosy-red color. I tried the powdered charcoal
likewise in large quantities upon my petunias,
: and found that both the white and the violet
flowers were equally sensitive to its action. It
always gave great vigor to the red or violent
1 colors of the flowers, and the white petunias
j became viened with red or violet tints. T e
i violets (colors ?) became covered with i rre 6 u ar
spots, of a blueish or almost black tint
