"Light" wasted.—The Columfaa Spy contains a police report for the week, in which Hie names of 18 offenders appear, charged with various misdemeanors. This is a terrible array of crime for the borough of Columbia. Friend S py, you must apply to the American Press for more tight.—Lan. cotter Intelligencer. Taking all things into consideration, we can sec nothing very " terrible" for Coumbio, in this array. Five hundred such offence* wouldn't equal one Haggcrty case. And, moreover, somo of the " cases" referred lo were residents of Lancaster, and nearly all were strangers and transient visitors. We have rather too much " light" hern for the dark designs of itinerant depredators, and if the "American Press" or the "Intelligencer"cither, has any of that commodity to spore, (light, v.c mean, net depredators,) we would advise them to disseminate it as unsparingly as a judicious regard for economy will allow, and then perhaps the "array of crime in Columbia" will bo sensibly diminished. ...

A Race with an Indian.—On Saturday last n small party, on their return from a pic nic excursion to the Indian village, happened to meet, about a mile this side the council house, the "last," Indian, John Stcsprock—(he who came near winning the great ten milo race at Hoboken.) As some of the parly were on their first visit to an Indian settlement and were desirous of seeing an Indian foot-race, John was bantered for a run, and, by the way of inducement was told that if ho would reach the council house (distant one mile and a trifle over) before we could drive there with our two horse team and wagon, containing (bur persons, he Bliould huvc a small purse which was made up on tho spot. John in a gutlural " nu'hwy" consented, and divesting himself of boots and hat, and tying a handkerchief tightly around his waistaud another around his head, was ready far a start. At the word "go!" and with a crack of the whip, away we went—team and Indian—the latter " loping'- off steadily, after the...

From the New Haven P&llatdum. Electrictv—Teieokapii Wires.—Messrs. Editors : It is with extreme regret and mortification, that I have seen circulating in the papers, thc " article alluded to in your last, in which a paragraph published in the New Haven Journal with the sigi>»lure of " O," is ascribed to me. The idea that we shall have no heavy thunder shower*, or lightning striking, as long as we have telegraph wires spread over the earth, could not, I should suppose, be entertained by any one, who reflects how small a. proportion such structures of art bear, in extent, to the grand operations of nature. Although a lino of telegraph wires sometimes undoubtedly facilitates the passage of electricity from the clouds to the earth (not by attracting the fluid, but by diminishing the resistance always experienced by electricity in passing through the air,) yet nothing appears to mcrr.^rc improbable, than that structures so limited in extent ns these are, and always must ...

The royal god dines a la Astor, and is by no means satisfied with plebian fare. Having eaten a sufficient quantity, he graciously permits his worshippers to par-Is ke of the remainder. If the god leaves any. of the food, the natives regard it as indication that their sins are all forgiven.
