Griffin’s Mills, Berrien Cos., Oct. 30 1858 ts From the Christian Index. Extraordinary Discovery. Pln FIELD, Ga., March 12, 1800. /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.

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* £Toiji ••>’ to V"’**'*—-• * 1 -wliai./. 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 The*boy Cs a fine looking child, and seems to be more girl; did not at all relish the idea of being locked up, and perfectly wil ling to return® Both are poorly dressed, and the probability, tliut not having beenVell treated at home, they took this meansot* redicoßingSt] ie ir grievances.

In the five theological seminaries of the Presbyterian churches, —(bid . school.) —viz : Princeton, Alleghany, Union, Columbia", aud Chicago, there is an aggregate of four hundred and fifty-seven students, against four hundred and sixteen last year. The largest number, one hundred and seventy, is at princeton; the smallest* eighteen, is at Chicago. .

VOL. 111-NO. 1. One Union Man in Mississippi. The editor of the Brandon (Miss.) Republi | can thus defines his position on the disunion question : “ 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 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 mation, Nullification Message, and Farewell Ad dress. We would read and study the Holy Bi ble, and pray for the Democracy six times a day, and spend our days in publishing a Union paper. © . ® 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. ® ® © Washington slept that nisht. hud not be fore for fouuNveeks. © @ W ashingtorF slept # that flight and woke the next morning to find on every wall® nd in cvefy® paper this announcement. © 11.

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 physicians, lawyers, etc., always find plenty of room, plenty of work, and good pay.

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 tenths Great IJritiari, and particularly Ire land, were tonncrlvQj'egarded the great hot-beds of pauperism, but now if is officially published to the world that that unenviable distinction is contested by a State which claims to be the fore most in the .Afcnerican Union —the Empire ©State. © j That statistics of pauperism are not collected i n *Ol the States, and that we have consequent > ly no means to measure its extent throughout 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 ern cities, and the work-shops of northern beggar is rajply seen, and, when seen, is, in nineteen eases out of twenty, an outcast from Europe or the north. Such facts as this, and oW* figures as we have quoted from the official documents referred to aWo to explain, in part, why the South resists so sternly impudent efforts of northern busy-bodies to im pose their social system and industrial institu tions upon her. Her people prefer to enjoy the abundance with which Providence blesses them, and to indulge the ease and repose secured to them by the institutions their fathers establish ed —Richmond Whig. w A New Motive Power Discovered.

[ 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 persons who admired them thought tiat iey were new varieties from seed, k ellow are, as 1 have proved, insensible to the .afluenc of the charcoal — Cottage Gardnet ■
