GREAT SEA SERPENT. The wind during the day had been liglht from the north-east, and about half past two P.M., while almost be calmed, one of the. men who;had gone aloft discovered -him about one point off the lee.bow, distant quarter of a mile. I immediately went aloft taking with me an excellent sea glass, and stationed myself on the main-top-gal laut cross-trees. As lie neared the vessel, I was enabled, from my ele vated position, to observe the pecu liarity of his shape, and to reconnoitre all his moveuients.

Of the practicability of both soelinps united we have no doubt whatever, although we should be doubtful of :ither standing alone. The idea of a "'Railroad Colo ,nizing Company," is precisely the thing to attract the eyes ofa speculaing.capital *ist, and, even in the decline of the in inia, would have arestorative effect, and 'create anappetite even under the i ibs of death."
