A MOUNTAIN or SALT.-It is affirmed, in an Amer ican publication, respecting the province of Louisiana, that there is a mountain in that country, 1000 miles up the Missouri, said to be 180 miles in length and 36 in width, composed of solid rock salt, several bushels of which have been brought to St Louis. The truth of this is sad to be attested by respectable and enterprising traders who have visited the mountain. A specimen of the salt haS been sent to Marietta. The existence of such a mountain must be numbered among the wonder ful productions of nature.-New Monthly Mag. DISGRACEFUL AFFAIR-The following case came on at Bow-street police-office on Saturday last, and we trust it will induce persons upon whom a similar impo sition may be practised, to have recourse to the same means for justice :--Madame Tessier, a French lady, residing at Mr. Verdier's, the upholsterer's, in Long-acre,. aIccompanied by'her landlord, applied to Mag.

SELECT POETRY. THE LOVER TO HIS DEAD MISTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 9 August 1827

BSELEC'T' POETRY. THE LOVER TO HIS DEAD MISTRESS. And thou, upon thy bier of death, Art shrouded for the tomb! Nor iHying pulse, nor human breath, Save mine,--disturbs the gloom! And ghastly falls the taper's light On thee, and on thy bier; Yet I until the morning light Shall watch, and feel no fear. I clasp thy ice-cold hand in mine, Till mine is scarce less cold; And trace those features, line by line, Till they seem of breathing mould; Yet fonder, holier is my gaze, Than when, in periods past, I saw that beauty's living blaze For now I gaze my last. Those lips are musical no more, But their still sweet smile is there; The flashing of that eye is o'er, But the calm-closed lid, how fair ! Oh I could bow to sorrow's storm, Nor sigh for days more bright, 'If ever thus, that hallowed form Might sleep within my sight ! More joy to watch thee stirless there, To kiss that bloodless brow, Than gaze on crowds of living fair, Though fair as once wert thou ! Less sad, to keep the fostered fl...

As I consider the question regarding the.'reflux in the Gulph of Goletta set at rest, at'least po far as a very PROBA BLE t'NCERTAINTY can, resolve the difficulty; I would not have made it the subject of another letter, but for an indirect eharge of Heterodoxy conveyed in the last letter of Juvenis; and which seems so have originated in a too extensive and mL warranted .interpretation of expressirins 'made use of-by me in the course of the discussion.

LETTER TO SIR JAMES GRAHAM, BART. (Continued from Page 568) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 9 August 1827

IETTER' TO&8IR JAMES GRAHAM,' BART. (Cortinued from Page 568) You have discovered that the lessening of the quantity of the paper-money causes prices to fall ; that augment ing the quantity of it causes prices to rise ; you have discovered that the " lamented" Mr. Recardo was in error, relative to the effect of Peel's Bill; you have dipeovered that he, and the rest of them, ought to have taken;wheat, and not gold, as the standard. You have discovered that Mr. Peel did not foresee the effects of his own Bill. You have discovered that there is a difference, when we are talking about changing the value of money, between a country which has a debt, and a country which has none. You have discovered thatt France and America acted wisely, with regard to their debt ; but that our Government undertook that which no Government ever undertook before. You have discovered thatthe prices have gone on popping up and down, according as the Ministers have changed the quantity and value of th...

RURAL RIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 9 August 1827

RURAL RIDE. UPHUSBAND (Hampshire), Thursday, 24th Aug.-We left Burghclere last evening, in the rain; but, as our distance was only about seven miles, the consequence was little.-The crops of corn, except oats have been very fine hereabouts; and, there are never any pease, nor any beans, grown here.' The sainfoin fields though on these high lands, and though the dry weather has been of such long cQntinuance, look as green as watered meadows, and a great deal more brilliant and beantiful. I described this beautiful village (which lies in a deep dell) and its very variously shaped environs, in my Register of November, 1822. This is one of those countries of chalk and flint and dry-top soil and hard roads and high and bare hills and deep dells, with clumps of lofty trees, here and there, which are so many rook.. eries: this is one of those countries,or, rather, approach ing towards those countries, of downs and flocks of sheep, which I like so much, which I always get to when I can and ...

ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 9 August 1827

ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. S'HOUSE OF LORDS, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11--A person from the Treasury presented at the bar an account of the in crease and diminution which had taken place in the number of persons employed in public offices for the year 1826. CoRn LAws.-Lord King had a petition to present to the house, which was very numerously signed, and which came from a part of the country which was at present extremely distressed-from Oldham. in the county of Lancaster. He was much afraid that this petition could not meet with much attention from their Lordships, as it came from the lower orders, who he knew, were in some quarters considered not very much worth attention. The petition came from persons very much interested-the consumers of corn, and was to be delivered to an assembly very disinterested, and withal' very enlightened. The petitioners prayed for a complete re peal of the corn laws, and hoped that their lordships would 1 come to a determination to make the currency of the country...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 9 August 1827

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENC . A young spark, the other day knocked at the door, of a respectable. house in ,---- Street, and very pohltely asked, if: " he had been rightly informed that there " were vacant accommodations for a gentleman and his " servant." Being answered in the affirmative, he was' 'ushered up stairs by a young lady, a near relative of the Mistress of tle house. Satisfied with the apart m?ents, he began to feel a special drawing towards his fair conductress, and on being shewn by her the last room into which he was introduced, he had the audacity, by a sly and sudden movement, to seal the bargain on her lips ! ie found however to his cost, that though the apart ments were to be let in a lot; the lady was to be let alone; for actuated by that propriety of feeling for which our English maidens are famed, the Damsel'first crmeamed, and then fled, thereby arousing the whole. female_ arrisoti below.

THE MONITOR. THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 9, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 9 August 1827

THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 9, 1827. A gentleman, apparently fixed on a good wheat farm at Hunter's River, and who we suppose has found the growing of wheat this season an unprofitable specula- tion, has addressed a temperate and sensible letter to the Governor, through the medium of last Monday's Sydney Gazette. And as the subject he undertakes to discuss, is important, whether the feelings of the wheat Grow- ers of New South Wales be considered, or the interests of our Community at large, we shall take this early op- portunity of commenting on the honest opinions of the "old Settler on Hunter's River."   To His EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR DARLING, &c. &c. &c. " SIR, Hunter's River, July 27, 1827. "The Government Notice of the 17th inst. must fully prove   to that wealthy class of settlers, the graziers, the anxiety your Excellency feels for their welfare. There is, however, a far more numerous class of agriculturists, who are, at this mo- men...

WHAT IS COMING ? TO THE READERS OF THE REGISTER. Kensington, 7th Feb. 1827. My Friends, 'WHEN Pitt seemed to be balancing whether he should or should not be bullied by the 'Boroughmongers into the war against the republicans of France; when it was believed by great numbers of well-informed persons (and I believe it still) that he wished not to go into that war: at that .time Mr. Paine wrote and published a pamphlet, entitled " the Prospects on the Rubicon" ; or an Address under some title or other, for, I really forget precisely what the title was, desiring the Minister to pause, to refleet upon the consequences of such war; and, I remember well that, amongst other things, he warned the nation, that, let the war end how it might; let what might be its professed object, let it be marked in its progress by whatsoever events it might, it would in the end, leave consequences behind it, that would be fatal to the aristocratical families in England.

T?i anxiety respecting the formation of the Ministry has increased up to the present moment. There is an, expectation which is said to make " the heart sick J" but that is the expectation of an event, the positive occur rence of which is not certain. As a Ministry, however .must eventually be formed, and any great delay in the formation of it cannot but be attended with public in convenience, the expectation in this case, having a term il view which. cannot be pissed, becomes continually more ardent. We yesterday stated, most accurately and. truly, that a requisition had been made to Mr. Canning to form a Ministry, but with a condition, which *eemed to render the execution of the taslppracticable. T'o day, we believe, we may state with equ}l certainty .ind truth, that the same Right Honourable gentleman has.full and unfettered permission to form a Ministry. Letitotthe public, however, exult too hastily, on the knbwledge. f'this ,fact, which yet is grateful and pro pin}ig. To the com...
