Doeeticka "J ?MD|h!i!!f ^fwhich w,g?uff took tall note., waa th?t of Edward Bobber, a seafaring man of very peculiar appearance, poasessing Home remarkable characteristics of manner, dress speech, look* and action He was charged with being drunk In the way of physical beauty Edward waa decidedly a damaged ar ticle. He had lost one arm by a snake bite, and been deprived of an eye by the prema ture explosion of a pistol, wbich broke his spectacles at the same time it extinguished In? sinister optic. The unexpected deacent of a shipmate, from the tops, upon his head, had turned his neck so that he seemed to be keep ing a perpetual lookout over his shoulder with lus remaining eye His nose resembled a halt ripe tomato, and a pair of warty excrescences hung upon bis faee as if some one had shot a couple of marbles at him, which had stuck to uiiu for life. Hia complexion bore a close re semblance to the outside of a huckleberry I udding. His teeth, which were usually long projected backward, as if they had taken a ttart to grow down hia throat. This last pe culiarity wa?, undoubtedly one cause of a re mark able singularity of speech, which se riously impaired his natural facility of con versation. Some idiosyncracy of disposition, probably, had also something to do with this lingual embarrassment, but certain it is that Mr. Edward bobber never answered one ques tion until he was asked another, to which last tie would give the reply intended for ouery riumber one Whether his mental faculties needed always a second interrogative punch <ng up, or whether the fangs projecting down ward retained one answer until displaced by another, ^ agstaff and bis friends were una Me to decide ; but they truly believe that an inquiry propounded to Edward Bobber, afore ;-aid, would have remained unanswered uutil doomsday, unlets a etcond question followed the first. A transcript af a conversation between him ami the clerk of the court real as follows : Clerk?Where were you born ? The prisoner removed his solitary orb fr ?m its guardianship, over his left shirt sleeve, rolled it slow.y rouud until it commanded a fair view of the questioner, but ^aid nothing, i ?*lefck, nothing daunted, continued : 44 llcw long have you been in this country ?" I The face assumed a look of intelligence, and answer No. 1 came out Edward?Broome county Clerk?How old are you ? El ward?Two years Clerk?How long have you been drunk f. Edward?Thirty-four years, seven months and nine days. Clerk?Where did you get your liquor ' Edward, (rolling hiseye toward theJudge)? Been on a spree four days Judge, (very Indignant)?Did you eay I've been on a spree ? Edward?Old Mother BidwolTs, down in Mott street. Clerk Do you mean hereafter to treat this court respectfully f Ed warn?No, sir, I hope not. Officer with red hair?If you ain't craiy, I in a jackass. Edward?Yes, sir, of course Ihe excited Judge here commerced making out his commitment, but the elerk. who began to see the fun. thought best to ask him a tew more questions first, and accordingly inquired of Bobber what he traded in, as he seemed to own a sloop. The prisoner, who had been cogitating upon the last remark of the red haired officer until he had waxed wroth, burst out: "Jack-ass! jack-ass' yes, you are a jack ass ; not a doubt of it." Clerk?Come, tell me what kind of liquor did you drink yesterday?" Edward?Soap, candles, coffee, bar lead, chickens, coal, pine kindling wood, smoked hams and white wood shingles? Judge, (interfering)?Prisoner, you are only gettiDg yourself into trouble. My patieDce will give out. I can't stand everything. Do you think I'm made of patience ? Edward?Whiskey; nothing but whiskey, sir. upon my honor." The last answer proved too much for the gravity of the court. The judge, the clerk, the attendant officers, and all smiled audibly A whispered word from the clerk explained to the justice the true state of the case. Ed ward was discharged, and as he departed from the court room an officer two blocks away heard him, in answer to a request for a penny proffered by a little girl, give what waa undoubtedly intended as a detailed reply to the last interrogative remark of the police justice. A Dinner with Washington. ? While Washington was at West Point, at tbe close of 1779, fortifying that strong position, says ;4 Notes and Queries," he bethought hiiu of inviting a certain Dr. Cochran to dinner, and his letter of invitation, besides giving & pic ture of the style of living at headquarters, is more remarkable, since it is almost the only ] instance of sportivo writing in all Washing-) ton's correspondence The letter is as fol lows : 44 Dear Doctor : I have asked Mrs. Cochran and Mrs Livingston to dine with me to mor row ; but am 1 not in honor bound to apprise them of their lare ? As I bate deoep.'ion. even where the imagination otily is cun^ra ed. I will. It is needless to premise that my table is laige enough to hold the ladiei. Of this they bad ocular proof yesterday. To s::y how it is covered w more esaential. and shall bo the purport ol my letter Since our arri val at this happy spot, we have had a ham, sometimes a shoulder of bacon, to grace the head of the table, a piece of roast beef adorns tbe foot, and a dish of beans or greens, al most imperceptible, decorates the centre When the cook has a mind to rut a figure, which I presume will be the ca? to-morrow' we have two beelsteak pies or dishes of crabs in addition, one on each side of the centre dish, dividing the space and raducing the dis tance between dish and dish to aboat six feet, which, without them, would be about twelve teet apart. Of late he has had the suprisin^ sagacity to discover that apples will make pies, and it is a question if, iu the violence of His efforts, we do not get one of apples instead of having both of beefsteak If the ladios can put up with such entertainment, and will sub mit to partake cf it on plates once tin, but now iron, (not beoome so by the labor of scouring,) 1 shall be happy to see them " The Greatest Citv.?London is now the greatest city in the world, and far surpasses all the great cities of antiquity. According to Gibbon, the population of ancient Rome, in the height of its magnificence. was 2,200,000 Nineveh is estimated to have had 600,000 and Dr. Medhurst supposes the population of Pekin is about 2,000,000 The population of London, according to recent statistics, amounts to 2 500,000 , 404,622 having been added to it during the laat ten years. The census shows that it contains 307,722 inhabited, and 16 3te9 uninhabited houaea. Paris proper has increased 200,000 in papu lation since Louis Napoleon firet assumed ?way. New York ie stretching on toward 1,000,000 Glycerine.?The manner In which the now much-talked of article called *' glyceriie" ?s prepared, is by placing a com on n piei? of peat in a quantity of euper-aaiurated steam ; the peat is decomposed, and resolves itself into two substanoes, via. acid and glyeeiine. The latter has a taste like sugar, is applicable to the cure of burns, rheumatism and ear dis eases ; it is a substitute for codliver oil and for apirits of wine; is uaed for fcbe presta tion of fleab, and oan be applied toptoUfra pkj.

The Science pour torn*?a French journal, as its nime denotes, of popular science?from which we are deriving the substance of this article, states that a part of Savoy produces it of the most flexible kind, and having the longest and most silky fibres That procured from the Ural mountains In Siberia is singu lar in being compact when it ia taken from their sides, but becoming flexible and silky when impregnated with moisture It is found in veins in the mountains, and never at all uiirgled with the substance of the granite or gneiss, in which rocks it most frequently oc curs. The fragments of a?be-tus often seen in the interior ?>f a rock crystal, show that the cavities in which they are deposited were tilled with a liquid which contained silica in solution, and which was thrown off in order that cystalization might go en smoothly and regularly. Asbestus wus esteemed preoioui by the an cients ; they employed it to make tissues which served to envelop the body when it was bun ei after death, and to preserve its axhes uniningled with Ihote of the fuel by which it was consumed A large marble uru was dis covered in 1702, in a vineyard near Home, containing a piece of this asbestus olotb more than two yards in length by one and three quarters in width ; it resembled doth made of hemp, but it was as soft and glossy as silk It confined the half burnt bones and skull of some ancient worthy; it was placed in the library of the Vatican. Obtained from Per* sia at great expense, the custom of burning the corpse in a tissue of this substance oould only be current in the richest families. The price of the cloth of asbestus waa indeed ao high that Pliny considered it in effeot re served for royal sepultures Superior quali ties of it served for cloths for the sacred lamps, and for the table linen of the wealthy , after use it was said t? be thrown into the fire by the servants to be cleaned Pliny was ignorant of tue nature of asbes tus ; he classed it with vegetable substances, and called it "unchangeable linen ' lie compared its value to that of fine pearls and added that it was prepared to austain the heat of fire by the broiling sun of the India deserts where it grew We are surprised to find the ancients giving cred it to tales so absurd. Pliny. the Reman naturalist, believed, on the testi mony of the sage Anaxilaus, that a tree en velopbd in a tissue of asbestus, could stand, without Injury, the blows of an axe la modern times, some industrious individ uals have occupied themselves in spinning asbestus, and have succeeded in making it into cloth by reaortiag to lie eipedient of mixing it with cotton or linen, without which, th . thread has not sufficient stre&J1'1 *? woven They then put it into tha fire .an<* draw 'l forth a tissue of pure a.-beetus Thtf .rounda bout way would probably have been fl'i^e cetairy if they had known and applied tka a?L I of asbestus best fitted for their object.

Country Gentleman. A Strange Story.?There is a melancholy tale told in the memoir prefixed to tha "futa: of the late A J. llol lings worth " lie was the Illegitimate son of a lady standing well with the world, by whom he was committed (at birth) to a nurse whose name he took His mother never acknawledged him, never ap pears to have seen him. When he was old enough to pass out of the hands of the woman whom he was taught to regard as his parent, he was confidentially entrusted to the clergy man who is now writer of his memoir, by whom he was taught, and also inculcate! witb a taste for Anglo Saxon. At the age of la. y >ung lioliingtfworth began to write vert* Uefore the age of 20 he began to feel the mys tery ot his position in the world, and to make fruitless, impatient inquiries of his tutor as to the " uncle ah,} was #aid to ba the paymas ter on his account tbe ??* of be became a lover, was weaApfrjdi *nd. because tLe tutor could say nothing wfe^'ever uf his fimily conueations, was spurned a* a ^astard by the parents of hie mistreaa. lie tten oelled against aociety, and, obtaining through the tutor, money from the unknown mother, went abroad, and traveled during the rest <4 bia life up anl down the world, learning strange I ?uguages. studying strange ways, writing strange verses. and coming heme every three or four yeara. to get a fresh sup ply of money?through the tutor?to P|?end a f-w weeks in wandering near the abode of his lost mistress, and to set off again. In 1853 he set off in this manner for Niagara, taking a passage in the Isaac Wright among the com mon emigrants But the Isaac Wright struck on a rock, and returned a wreck into the M?;resy, cheUra having broke a out on board, and forty-seveu passenger* having been thrown overboard before tha ahip had regained Liv erpool. Hollingsworth was one of tbo^e who did not return lie perished at the ag? of thirty-five. The Centr al Sow ?All scientific men have maintained that there must be a central point, if not a central sua, around which the wholo university revolves Maedler, who is unquestionably oneof the greatest astronomen ever known, has given this subject his attention ; and he has couie to the conclusion that Aloyane, the principle star in the group known n's Pleiades now the centre of gravity, and is at ^esent the grand can ?ral sun ?roan J which tke whole starry uni verse revives. This is one of the moat iotar I?tint and important astronomical announce * "nU ever made, though U ia very likely that but for the eminent scientific position ot the author, it would be treated as visionary. Another interesting statement in thia con nection is made by Mr Thompson, one of the physicists who, with Carwot, S^uU, Meyer and "others, baa largely contributed toward establishing the relations between beat iand mechanical foroa, and who bu researches to the heat emitted by the sun which heat, he observes, corresponds to a de velopment of mechanioal fores,- which, in the anace of about one hundred yeara tseqaiva Unt to the whole active foree reared to pro duce the movement of all the plaueu.
