Meetings ?re being held in New York with regard to the newly discovered mode of manufacturing a substitute lor building purposes. Prof. Mapes explains the quality and composition of the arti cle as follows: "We have here a mixture of the ordi nary plaster of Paris, sand and blood: in the mixture of which, it is natural that a hard and compact composition would b.^ formed, although the articlea them selves do not vary from the common ar ticles of commerce: but In their admix ture they undergo several chemical changes, which entirely overthrow their single tendencies, and form the substance such as I bold before me. Blood contains a large amount of pot ash, which seizes hold of the sand and renders it soluble, and it is to this silicite of potash formed that the stone becomes of its apparent quality. It h?s a strange power when it meets with the albumen, which is one of the constituents of .the blood: but if the albumen of b'ood meets with the silicite of potash, a chemical process takes place, ?"id it is then not soluble from the action of water. But when it is diffused through the mass, as here, the chemical change is slow. The albumen is divided into infinitesimal pro portions, and if it be caught in the me chanical {osition, anc there becomes coagulated, it forms a kind of binding matter between these parts, and if tbese parts be not soluble (in which state we already have shown them to be) you have all the requisitions of stone- for you will find a hardness and strength, as in the proportion of the escape of all gase? by time, aud a more perfect fragment grows by age. Tu the blood, also, you have a quantity of Iron, which, diffused throughout the mass, forms an additional strengthening component, as it is the better mixed into the substance. lie went on to explain that time would ' add to the quality of the article, although too early exposure was not advantageous to it?he would recommend that it bi laid aside at least for a few days, and be coated with an insoluble condiment of some kind, which would protect the in | terior during the process of hardening. He looked for a new era in the art of de sign as growing from the int-oduction of 1 this artificial stone, which, on examina tion, he found could be manufactured at small expense, in a short tin.e and ot 51 eat durability. ARKCDOTE OF SHELLEY. Shelley took great pleasure in making paper boats, and floating them on the water. So long as his paper lasted he remained riveted to the spot, fascinated by this peculiar amusement. All waste paper was rapidly consumed, then the covers of letters, next letters of little value; the most precious contributions' of the most esteemed correspondents, a' though eyed wistfully many times, and often returned to his pocket, were sure to be sent in pursuit of the former squad rons. Of the portable volumes wh;ch were the companions of his rambles? and he seldom went out without a lx>ok? ;he fly-leaves were commonly wanting; he had applied them as our ancestor Noah applied gopher wood. But learn ing was so sacred in his eyes that he never trespassed fuithcr upon the integ rity of the copy?the work itstlf was al ways respected. It has been said that he once found himself on the north bank of the Serpentine river without the ma terials for indulging those inclinations which the sight of water invariably in spired, for he had exhausted his supplies on the round pond in Kensington liar dens. Not a single scrap of paper could be found, save only a bank note for fifty pounds. He hesitated long, but yielded at last, lie twisted it into a boat, with the extreme fineness of his skill, aud committed it with the utmost dexterity to fortune, and watching its progreas, if possible, with a still more intense anxiety than usual. Fortune often favors those who fully and frankly trust her; the northeast wind gently wafted the costly skiff to the south bank, where, during the latter part of the voyage the ven turous owner waited its arrival with pa tient solicitude.

A friend mentions an amusing circum stance corrobcrating this, of which he was himself an eye-witnes* : I was standing, he said, in the railroad depot at Cincinnati, just as the train was preparing to start. There was a great crowd, as usual, in the building, and all at once a man, who had put his hand in his undercoat pocket behind to take out his pocketbook to pay his fare, exclaimed, his face glowing with excitement: ?? I've been robbed! ThefP are thieves ibout here! Some villain has taken my pocketbook with over a thousand dollars in it!" 44 Where did you carry ycur pocket book, sir ?" "In my undercoat pocket, sir, be hind !" "Then, sir, you can scarcely blame the individual who has taken it," replied the other, in a very pompous, self-satis tied, patronising rnanrxr, and in 4,a voicc of warning," intended for the cars of all the bystanders. 44 Yes, sir, you oiler, if I may say so, a temptation, a premium. >ir, upon theft by carrying money in I such a placc. Now, Fir, I always carry my money Acrr," he continued, putting his hand into an inside breast pocket of his coat,44 and there it is always" ? 44Safe," he would have said : but he suddenly drew out fcis hand, as if he had been bitten by an adder, exclaim ing: 4- Why, my pocketbook is gone, too! Thieves ! thieves ! thieves ! L;t no one go out of the depot!" The adfrice was acted upon, by doing which I )th were found upon the tioor, where they bad been droppexi by the adroit thief, who then mingled in the large and promiscuous crowd. The fault of both had been a lack of personal watchfulness in such a place. Lach had 44 practiced the same," as the sage Dogberry says, they were t3th 44 in a case. "?Rochester DcmocrcU. A Very Extraordinary Disease has lately made its appearance in a few fam t ilies in this city?some of them eminent in wealth and position? which has con founded our physicians, becau-e of its novelty. Atlirstthey classed it under the head of e:rysipelas, but as it would not bear that classification, some of them have given it the name of 44the plague." It appears at first in some discolored spot, say on the face, and extending, without suppuration, it soon destroys life, as if by a general mortification. If suppur ation takes place, it passes off; but if not, death is sure to follow. There is no con tagion about it, and it is not epidemic in any form. One or two physicians have icsorteel to the knife, and cut out the plague spot on its first appearance, and so havesaved life. Fever and delirium attend the pro gress of the disease, if 4'the spot" is left to spread. Such is our information; but as have seen no case with our own eyes ?and if we had, should not be able to describe it scientifically?what we say must be taken with this understanding. It is not the plague, for i*. is not con tagious, or epidemic. But what is it? The plaguo may be imparled, nay it has been imported, into the south of France, Irom Turkey; but it may be some new disease, which, like the cholera, is to de stroy the human race. We should be obliged to some medical man for some scientific or more specific account of the disease.?N. Y. Express, June 19. Sad Scenes in China.?A letter from Canton, under date of March 12th, says that the Rebels had been entirely rout ed in the neighborhood of Canton, and that the main fight took place near Wham poa. Many of the Rebel boats were cap tured, also a large number of prisoners. The executions, for several days, aver aged one hundred and fifty per day. 0:i the 11th a party of foreigners'witnessed the decapitation of one hundred and for ty-seven. also the cutting to pieces of three others, who were leading men among the Rebels. Towns which had been under the rule of the Insurgents were fast going over to the Imperialists, and trade was beginning to revive.

The French have lost many val uable men and officers in their foolish at tacks on Shanghai.
