The State Journal, in speaking of them on the 18th of May. stated that "one of tho meteors waa laid upon our table by Mr. John Burdick. who dug it from its concealment in tho bosom of the earth on his farm in Gurusey county " M~. J. Milton Smith of New York, has becomo the possessor of this curiosity by purchase He authorized a gentleman of Columbus to negotiate for him. and had the satisfaction of i.'Oiaining the stone, although tho re was a large number of bidders for it Accompaning the meteor is the following certificate from the gentleman who saw it fall and gathered it nn " "f CERTIFICATE. "Cotr*BC8, May 21, 1860 ?This is to eertify that the meteoric stone this day sold to J. if. Wheeler was dug frotn the earth by myself on the 3th day of May instant, from a depth of about eighteen inches, in my farm in Guernsey couuty, Ohio. The meteoric shower occurred just one week previous, and some of the stones were so hot when found, they eould not be handled. The space of country where the shower occurred was about six miles wide, and those who were in the vicinity say the first report ww equal to the discharge of heavy artillery, followed by a sound resembling the firing of musketry or small arms in quick succession. " I have resided near the place mentioned since January, 1859. John Burdick " This meteor weighs jmt nine pounds. It is black, wedge-shaped, of conglomerate rock, and has a very perceptible smell of sulphur n ue^cnaeu wun iigtitnmg-Hko rapidity. and penetrated the earth about a foot and a half, making a large hole by its entrance into the soil. Baltimore as it is.?The Baltimore corre?pondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer thuspeaks of the present prosperous condition of Baltimore . "Growing. as we have done, under mistakes and follies, Baltimore, in the past five years, inaugurated many new enterprises worthy of ail praise. She abolished the old rowdy Volunteer Fire Department, contending against firmly fixed prejudices, and estab-. lisheil a new Paid Steam Department, which is the pride and admiration of every boholder She has hor City Passenger Railway, an indispensable necessity and unspeakable convenience Wo have put up one of the finest jnils anywhere to be found in the United States. ? *- ? uur water wor*s, now Deing constructed, at a cost of two millions dollars, when in full operation. will almost challenge rivalry The Peabody Institute is rapidly progressing It will not only be an ornament, but an honor for all time to come to the liberality and munificence of its projector. The Shepperd Asylum for the deaf and dumb, will soon be erected at a cost of a half million dollars. The new City Hall, soon to be commenced, will be a grand structure, casting over six hundred thousand dollars. The new Government I'nitcd State* Court House, about being built directly opposite, promises to be an elegant building. Our grand Central Park, a site for which is now under review, to be decided upon in a few days, covering an area of six to seven hundred acres, will be the crowning ornament ami pride of Baltimore. These. with many other projects in the way of internal improvements, contemplated lines of steamers to Europe and elsewhere, give evidence that we are not wanting in energy and enterprise Life aw Ei-ic.?Life is an epio, nay, the greatest of all epics Whether it be draped with the enrrouactings of a palace, or shivers in the penury of a cottage, still it is an epic? a conflict, heroii or not, a* we choose to make it. History, ever eloquent in praise of the statesmen and warriors who have ruled and oppressed mankind, has made little account of that obscure but no less real vitlnr that Vim lived and burned in the bosoms of the uncounted multitude. In our ignorant and childish folly, we all are too much prone to look for real men in places of power?while in fact we are surrounded with them, though, alas ' too often we know them not. Look upon those who have just begun to try the hard temper of the world, with scarcely a friend to cheer them, and a crowd to push them back. See with what patient fortitude and cheerful courage they labor on. struggling like tho swimmer in his agony, both to keep from sinking and to gain the wished-for shore. Or look again, and .see them occupants of a field in which they have pitched their tents and reared their banners. Still around them rolls the din of envious hate and the sharp rattle of the slanderer s spears. In its outward experience and conditions. their lives are full of conflict and of epic daring. Nor is this less true of women than of men. While marriage should be to them a sneucr ana norne, a ueu-nso, yet as they are partakers of this mortal life, so must they share its inevitable sorrows, too. And the moiher who keeps watch ard guard through weary days and toilsome nights over her juvenile care, and who survives long enough to see her mother's hopes blasted and her pious labors disappointed, though she may have no marble obelisk, when sho is gone, to tell what thiugs she did or suffered, is nevertheless to be ranki-d among those who have illustrated th* ?ni<? _ -r*w grandeur of human life As Elopement Extraordinary.?The Rochester Express gives the following account of a model elopement: " A Syracusean named Blair, having eloped with the wife of a French Canalian-Kochesterian. named Jean Pis^e, with whom the faithless woman?Julia?had been married but three months; the fellow Blair having b*en groomsman at the wedding. The distracted husband is repre?ented as having followed bis wife and Blair to Syracuse, and "ubsequently to Oswego. where a reconciliation was attempted, but failed, and Pisge attempted to punish Blair and got whipped. H ostilities were suspended, and negotiations on the part of the husband resumed in a milder way The injured husband engaged to withdraw his pretentions to the affections of his wife, provided she would DUt him in t>o8fl?minn of her property, a parcel "of real estate situated in the ^Province of Canada West The proposition was rejected with expressions of ridieale and contempt, and he was very coolly informed that the new firm, though not bound to one another by any legal tenure, were determined to enjoy the aforesaid, jointly and severally; and he. the defrauded and dishonored Pisge. might help himself if he could. He could'nt, and so with a broken English denunciation, he turned on his French-Canadian heel and returned to Rochester And thus he is revenged He contents himself with exposing the transgressors. Extraordinary Phvsiologral Phenomenon?The Sight or a Beautiful Blind Uikl Restored br Marriage.?A physiological wonder occurred a short time since in New York city A young and exceedingly interesting girl residing on Eighth street, whose amiable disposition, elegant manners, and placid beauty of soul, bad endeared her to all who knew her, waa, a year or two ago, compelled to discontinue her studies and leave school, in consequence of a partial loss of eyesight, that threatened to beooine total. She was entirely unable to rend A number of our most skillful physicians were employed by the family, and she was even taken to some of our most ngted occulists. but all their lenrning, dexterity and management proved unavailing. Her eyes looked healthy, were beautifully pensive in their expression, and seemed deep as her soul was pure, but they were nevertheless to her almost wholly useless. Notwithstanding this rather melaneholly physical defect, a young man who had long been devoted to her offered her his hand in marriage. She became his wife, and, strange as it may seem, from that day her eyesight began to improve, and she is now able to read the finest print by gas light, without pain and without any apparent optical Injury. / Amks. wikslow, N Experlen td Norao and Female Physician, preaenta to the attention of mothers, her SOOTHING SYRliP, For I'hlldrra Teething, WhUh frtaily f*ev th* praeaaa af taiihinf, ky aaf-.aa iDf lha rami, ria?^ , til inlonuUN-vill allay ALL rail* nod ipainiadie ac van,and it SURE TO REGULATE THE BOWELSD#p?r.a apan it, raathirt, it will fi?a rait ta faarm'ii, ttd RELIEF AND HEALTH T?
