YANKEE TURNED TURK A correspondent of Noah's Saturday Times, who Ialcly travelled in Egypt, relates the following amusing incident of Yankee enterprise: We soon found onrselvcs in the desert, travcrs. itig seas of sand. The weather was exceedingly pleasant, and the heat was not eo oppressive as was apprehended. We had un agreeable parly, dolcrrnin^'d lo be pleased with our jour* ncy,ancl not lo grumblti at whatsoever privations u-u encountered. Ejrly on :hc second day, after camping umung ruins, and in hearing of the howl of a solitary hycn«i—not a very pleasant 8-jund —Mic saw, at a distance, what appeared to be u alianiee nc.ir a small clump of palm trees. It was iuulIv conbiructt-d ol' rough boards, with on awkwardly formed door—the whole looking" likb anything else but Egyptian architecture; but it occurred to me that it might have been thus rudely thrown together us <i shelter for savans exploring the ruins in the neighborhood.

THE HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD The governments of Europe make a great parad< and wonderful display of pomposity in relation tc reigning houses. I*Y.inco has its house of /Jourbon, Prussia liint of Brandenburg, Austria lliat of Iljps. burg, and England, after trying a number of dynasties, has, for two hundred years been ruled by t/ic house of Hanover, represented in a race of fiuclphs. All these houses, nnd many more, are now united under the empire of Finance, whereof the sovereign is of the hou«c of Rothschild. Tha strides of that house to empire have been long nnd rapid, und its foundations are probably more stable than those uf nny .other reigning fimily. Boiijpartc rose rapidly from the lieutenancy of the regU ment La Fcrc to the commnnd of Europe. A military organization is not permanent, however. Most of the prepent families have come from a a low an origin ns the housu of Rothschild, but tljcy have been longer on lhe journey, and the frame work of tlicir greatness was b...

Among 1 tha number were two young 1 men from Tyrone, who Imd married just on the eve of sailing, und Imd conic with their buxom brides to seek their fortunes in America. The latter hud grown up side by side rom girlhood, and were intimate as sisters. The former were no less intimate and attached to each other. The names of these adventurers were Terence Leary and his wife Margaret, and Andy O'Shane and liia wife Biddy, or Bridget. The firfil idea ol coining to America, had been suggested by Leary. who was a quick, intelligent young man, and had conceived the notion thut a fortune was to be mndc in the new country across the Atlantic, from which ever and anon were coming the most inspiring intelligence to the enterprising and ambitious.

Hydraulic Telegraph.—We lately inspected a new species of telegraph, produced from the action of water, patented by Mr. Jowett, which appears to us very simplcond ingenious, and is likely to excite some attention,both from it its own merits and from the interest which is taken in this means of communication at present. Tiie idea of using water as a medium by which to communicate from place to place arose from its well-known incoin. possibility, and we find Mr. Jowett quoting;, in hh prospectus, from Dr. Lurdncr, the following passage, which conveys the leading feature of his invent ion :—Living- Age. " A pressure excited on tlic liquid at one end of the tube will be communicated to any surface in contact with the liquid at the other end, whether the tube between the two extremities be straight, curved or angular, or whether it puss upwards, downward?, or in an oblique or horizontal direction. It may he carried through the walls of a building, through the course of a. river, under,...
