Cy SINGLE COPIES ONE CENT. THE FIRST STEAMBOAT ON THE OHIO RIVER. We find some interesting particulars regard '?"i ^ navigation of the Ohio river by steam boat in " Western Annals,*' by James R. Al bach, of Pittsburg. from which it appears that citisens of New \ork were chiefly instrumental in promoting what was then considered an ad venturous and doubtful experiment. The au thor quote* from Mr. Latrobe: ?' 1 be complete success attending the experi ments in steam navigation on the Hudson and the atHoining waters, previous to the year 1S09, turned the attention of the principal projectors to the idea of its applicatiou on the western rivers; and In the month of April of that year ' Mr. Roosevelt of New York, pursuant to an I agreement with Chancellor Living-ton and Mr Fulton, visited those rivers with the purpose of forming an opinion whether thev admitted of steam navigation or not. Mr. Roosevelt sur veyed the rivers from Pittsburgh to New Or leans. and as his report was favorable, it was decided to build a boat at the former town " i InOetobor. Ml, tho "New Orleans"' was launched and sent out, boing intended to ply between that city and Natches? not, as stated in the extract from Thurston's book, between Pittsburgh and the falls of Ohio. Latrobe again: ''Mr. Roosevelt, his youn? wite and family. Mr. Baker the engineer, An drew Jack. the pilot, and six hands, with a few domestics formed her whole burden. There were no wood yards at that time, and constant delays were unavoidable. Late at night, on the fourth day after quitting Pittsburgh they arrived in safety at Louisville, having been but seven'y-four hours descendiug upward-* of six hundred milos " The settlers on the banks, who had not even heard the rumors of such a scheme, were struck with ?? surprise and terror"' at the appearance of the snorting monster. 441 have heard that the general impression among the good Kentuckians was that the comet had fallen into the Ohio. Th* small depth of water in the rapids prevented the 6oat from pursuing her voyage immediately; and during the conse quent detention of three weeks, several trips were successfully made between Louryville and Cincinnati. The waters rose in November, and in the last week of that month the voya^o was resumed' After being nearly overwhelmed with the earthquakes, the " New Orleans" reached Satchel the first week in January. 1812. Neither Mitchell nor his telescope wa.? on the banks of the Ohio in those days, and it was no more strange that the honest farmers should imagine the steamboat to be a comet, than are the vague apprehensions of the present time. ! that we are in danger of collision with one of thoso eooentric bodies. Singularly enough there whj then, as now. a widely-spread story that the earth was to be smashed"' like a felt hat. and ?? one-third of mankind" destroyed in the operation. A thief in a Virginia prison rofesaed to have been entranced, and to have ad a revelation foretelling the event. which was to take place on the fourth of June, 1S12?a remarkable coincidence of dates. A pamphlet was published and widely circulated. - adorned with sundry Yankee pictures of horrible sights, portraying the dire calamity." A9 a counterpart of this s'a mb->at-comet story, we remember one that was told about the people of a certain village who assembled to see the first locomotive pass by on the rails. Not one of them had the slightest idoa what sort of an animal it was. and tbey were busy with all kinds of conjectures. A smoking and rearing monster was seen in the distance, with an unaccountably long tail behind it. Nobody supposed this to be a travelling invention, and as it approached, the good people were con tounded and desperately puzzled. Fortunate ly. there was a ?* John fr.dgers'" in the village. I and he was called on to explain it. John wiped Lis glasses, and looked over his nose with a profound all-knowing gaze. After due obser vatian.'? Oh!" said he, "yes. That's it at last, gentlemen; that is the thing that ha* kept the Congress of these United States in such a h?11 of a squabble for the last three months. That i? the tariff V THE SPIKITl AL1ST HUME. The Paris correspondent of the New York Evening Post says: ?' Mr. Dougla.1 lluui> has returned to Paris. He has brought his sister (a pretty, interesting girl of eleven years old.) to a boarding-school, where she is placed under the kind protection of the Empress " Mr. Hume is better in health than when he quilted Pari'*, and what is very singular, improved health seems to have diminished to *;rue extent his supernatural power. Mr. Hume has postivoly refused to give represen tation*. lie lives alone, very retired, and. ex cept on very few >jocasions, he doe* not consent to make any more experiments. Last tuuday. the dav the Court left Fon taiuebleau to return to I'aris. Mr. Hume had the honor of taking luncheon with their Maj esties and the King of Bavaria. before their de parture. *' He made several experiments which were required of him by the King of Bavaria In vu.ble hands have touched tne hair of his Maj esty. knocked his kness and patted his hau ls; the furniture was removed to considerable dis tances: the table* have replied to the questions put to them *? The King of Bavaria wa.? all admiration; the tu)aL.erious phenomena which manifest the supernatural |*>wer of Mr. Hume were pro duced in the mo^t decisive manner. Suddenly the phenomena cca->*sd; Mr. Hume lost his pow er the spirit refused to obey, the arm-chairs imf immovable, and the tables kept silence. ?? Aik th? spirits why they cea^e to reply,'* said one of the august witnesses of Uie experi ments. '? Mr. Hume obeyed. lie transmitted this question to the spirit, which, by the medium of the table replied, It is the hour of Divine ser vice. In fact it was a few minute-* before I2 0 clock. All rose from the table and went to the chapel. The interest wi;h which his Maj enty watches the experiment-1 of Mr. Hume are m<>.-t aurprising. He has always thought we rnu^t examine before deciding on that which appear* out of the ord.uary laws of nature, and listen without disdain to those who believe to have discovered some new law. some phenome non ooiiddered as impossible, or some tnyuery to which most men cling, because they do not comprehend it.

THE BONNET BUSINESS. b"fine!" of Massachusetts (says $ eSrfSI Tr;velIer) commands a largo amonnt ternnsi n0/mAH degree of tasta and en who c?n lf n?. everJ 11111,1 nor every woman st^le ot"a^ rt^.Ur*1a b?nnet iD the h[*hest cmILv 0ood.Ju?|?ment and taste are ne cessary to cuccess in the business. ho present rear has been a trying one for bonnet manufacturers. The season opened with fair prospects, and high hope, of a pros perous trade were inspired. Many laid their plans for extensive business, and the conse quence hu/ been that an unusual number of bonnet* have Wen manufactured. In Frank lin, Ma*i., somewhat distinguished for its man ufacture of straw goods for half a century, there have beenjnearly out hundred thoumml raw ut bonnets manufactured within si* month*. Abese cases probably contained seven millions or bonnets, enough for one quarter ot the heads, great and small, old and young, in the United States. About three hundred girls have been employed in the shops, while many others, in families, have worked at the business. Of oourse, when sudden stagnation of the business occurs, as the caso has been the present season, great losses are the result. Perhaps there has not boon much loss to most of the manufactur ers, taking the season as a whole, since the com mencement of the trade was profitable. The loss has come within the last two months. It was a good beginning with a bad ending. The reader can form some idea of the vast number of bonnets manufactured in the lansl. from the numbor made in tho town named above. It will be recollected that the above statement embraces only six months. If we add to this the number made in one other town in the State, (Foxboro*) and we shall probably have twenty hve miUionw for this year. Two towns thus furnish about one, bonnet each for every man woman and child in the Union. As the meii do not wear bonnets, and the babies do not need them, these two towns must furnish everv woman in tho land with two bonuets each?a very good supply. Then think of tho bonnets made in other places, and say if it is surprising that that the business is dull. May not one causo of the unexpected prostration ot this I'ran h ot traffic be found in the large number ot bonnets manufactured' The market must be o> erstocked, and hence the large quantities of straw now on hand, whilo the sale is over Many people have the idea that certain fash ionables in our large cities control the style of bonnets: in other words, the fashionable buver. and not the manufacturer, decides the stylr* of bonnets to be ma le. This is not so. The'man facturers control this matter completely. Last lull there was an association of bonuet-makers organized in this State, for the purpose of ma king tho style uniform. Hitherto there had been no concert of action in this regard, und the consequence was that so many styles appeared in the trade as to prove an injury. The above i association was formed to remove this diffioulty; and it has accomplished its object successfully. IJ -nnet merchants can afford to work for J small profits, and for no profits at all, this vear. since tho previous twelve or fifteen years 'have been exceedingly prosperous. The series of years has scarcely been interrupted by a sin gle "drawback.'' A va3t amount of money has i>ecn made in this time?men have riseu from poverty to affluence?and now a little bitter with the sweet will do them good. A Fishing Si'bxaiune Telegraph pon the N OK w KG I AS s? At Messrs. Ulas*j A Elliot's yard a fine submarine cable is being made for the Norwegian government. This is, as far as we are aware, probably the first electric tele graph which haj ever been used for fishing pur poses. During the fishing season tho shoals of her rings enter the fiords of Norway at most unex pected intervals, and at places where often not more than one or two fishing boats are to be f >und. Before the boats from the surrounding bays and fiords can be summoned to tho spoil the herrings have generally spawned and are away to Sea again To prevent these repeated disappointments and losses to the fishermen, the Norwegian gov ernment is about to lay a submarine cable along ?<>me fifty miles of the Coast most frequented by shoals, with land stations at short distances communicating with the fishing villages. The instant the shoal is seen in the offing, therefore, (and it can always be known at a distance by the whales which surround it,) a message will be sent along the coast telling each village the fiord or bay which it has entered. Alas for the poor herrings! M hat will become of them now that scicncc enters the deep against them, and their enernv lurks in their watery home ? They may elude whales and fishing bo.'tts. defy tides, winds and waves, but what can they do against the elec tric current They will splash heedlessly over the queer-looking rope on the bottom without thinking that it is telling their numbers and the way they have taken, and guiding their pursu ers to the destruction of them all.?London Times. Meeting or Philadelphia Butcher*. An adjourned meeting of the beef aud mutton butch ers of Philadelphia was held on Thursday even ing. for the purpose of making general nomina tions of delegates to attend a convent ion of butch ers which it is proposed to hold In the city of Baltimore during the month of September The chair was occupied by Mr. Adain tiros*, after which a number of gentlemen we e placed in nomination for delegates to the Baitituo.e Con vention, and a committee appointed to wait uoou them and ascertain if they "would serve.
