Thk Origin op toe Names op the Dats or the Week.?In the Museum of Berlin, in the tiall devoted to Northern Antiquities, they tiave the representations cf tho Idols from whom the names of the days of our week are lerived. From the idol of the Sun comes Sunday. This Idol is represented with his face like the Sun. holding a burning wheel, with both hands on his breast, signifying h'.s course around the world. The Idol of the Moon from which cornea Monday, is habited in a short coat, like man, but holding thc Moon in his hand?.

Wod on. from whence Wednesday, w*? a valiant Prince among the Saxons His image was prayed to for victory. Thor, from whence Thursday, is seated on a bed with twelve stais Dver head, holding a weptre in the right hand. Friga, from whence we have Friday, is repre ?en ed with a drawn sword in his right baud, and a bow in bis left. He was the giver of peace and plenty Seater, from whom is Saturday, has the appearance of perfoct wretcheduess he is thin visaged. long haired, with a long beard. He carries a pail of water in his right hand, wherein arc fruits and flowers. lyA Peruvian in London haa tried his hand at making a fortune of several million* without labor, by cuaterfeiting Vahe t/e Consolidation and Billrtet tl* Manumition.

If the papers are found to be genuine, they will be sealed with the aaal of the office, adding tbe "ffgitimore," and signed by tbe Director They will then receive tbe signature of tbe President The Peruvian Ministers of Lco ion and Washington are instructed to make likd inspection.
