THE WATER CUBE We hare read various sober, methodical, matter-of-fsct descriptions of the way in which people are washed clean from disease nt the " water cure1' establishments; but here is one, supplied by a victim at Brattleborough, in the New Haven'Herald, which does up tbe process in sf vivid, graphic, humorous kind of way, highly effective, but probably not a whit lest true than tbe dullest of the others. A feeble young man leaves his home and the nursing cares of a doting mother or fund wife, and comes here away North among the Hills, to seek the wifl-o'-wisp angel of health—in other words to get his stomach washed out and liver put in order. After a night's balmy repose, or rather in the midst of a night's slumbers, in which he dreams of fireside and home and the 'maternal coffee and toasts that awaits his wakening, the door of his chamber opens, and in walks a figure with shaggy hair, and bare and brawny arms, who shakes the slumberer and rouses him With the "hollow sp...

Man and Nature. "Ihe price of corn (maize) is no.w so different from the expectation of the owners far West, that the charges is more than the article is worth. Large parcels of corn and otheir products have been abandoned to the forwarders, and many cargoes and consignees would sell for -the charges.

Amid the deplorable servility that characterizes the party press at the.present day, it is really cheering to meet with a journal which has the independence, without the hope of party reward, and with the certainty of party denunciation, to advocate " the greatest good of the greatest number." The " Journal" is a handsome sheet, iudependent, free and fearless, and withal conducted with signal ability. ...

GREAT BEND & TUNKHANNOCK RAILROAD We last week published a Report of Wm. B. Foster, Esq., of ;a re-examination of the projected North Branch Canal extension.—; This examination was made, we understand, at the instance of the North Branch Canal Company, under 'the' following circumstances: A delegation"from the Company had been at Boston to induce capitalists to take stock in the concern; The Bostonians proposed that a re-surveyor examination of the finished, ^unfinished and requisite work on the line should be made by a competent Engineer ; arid assured the delegation! that if the Report of such Engineer should promise as favorably as their own representations, the necessary capital should be at once invested. The required ex&mjrfration has been made, and the report is even more favorable than was anticipated by the most sanguine. It appears that the State has expended upon the 107 and 21-100 miles, to be thrown into the hands of the Company, over three millimi...

Offer of Peace Rejected The IV. O. Commercial Timrs of the 14th in^t. sny^xhat the late offer of peace with Mexico through Mr. Trist, has been per--mptorily rejected by thnt government. Alj!iou<rh this important rumor is doubted, and i-ven denied by the Picayune, such rejection 1? precisely what might have been expected! from the Mexican government, in its present; condition. Whatever may have been said of the Mexican clergy favoring a treaty of peace, or of peace parties in that counjry, we doubt whether there are any, among all classes aod grades of that people, who are sincerely disposed to meet any reasonable offers from our government for an amicable adjustment oflhe issue. Tbe truth is, tho' disastrous in one sense, the war is not unprofitable to them in another, and if vre mistake not, there may be found at the base of all the discordant elements that divide and dis tract tbaf, country, ah i nveterate hatred of the invading army, and a determination to re mm, c...
