Magnetic Magic Mirror.—Baron Dupotct, the great Paris Magnetiser, has invented a Magic Mirror, which lie supposes to be the same that was among tho professors of the " black art" in former times. It is a small instrument, made of a sub. stance resembling dull white metal. The Baron explains its effects as being produced by the transmission of the matiero animantc of his own body into the metal. Many people have been thrown into convulsions by the bare approach of the mirror, while others declaro amid the transports of grief, or the stupefaction of surprise, that they behold reflected on its sufaco various scenes of their past lives, or gee themselves engaged in acts which they remembered not, therefore suppose that they must be anticipations of the future Wonderful, if true. u The Queen was drunk with all the honors, repeated Mrs. Partinglon to herself, while reading an account of the De Kay dinner at Cork.

Pleask Take Notice.—We have been frequently annoyed by a soap vender in Philadelphia named H&ucl, who meanly copies our advertisement* and applies the same to his own u*e.
