ATMOSPHERIC-TELEGRAPH. We had an opportunity yesterday of examin Iiiff, at No, 24 Merchants', Exchange, Mr. I. S. llFcharcisbn'a ingenious invention, called the "At mospheric Telegraph," by which letters and par cels can be transported considerable distances with almost incredible velocity rendering it prac tically nearly equal in speed to the magnetic tel egraph, over which it has many advantages in other respects. The apparatus consists of a tube connecting the places between which the , communication is to be maintained, in which a sort of piston, called a u plunger," is fitted, with a loose leather packing. The matter to bo sent is enclosed in a bag behind this plunger.. Its propulsation is secured by the pressure of the atmosphere of ordinary density behind it that in front being rarified by means of an air punip producing a partial vacuum. This- propelling power is so great as to produce an apparently instantaneous motion of the plunger, with its load, from one end to the othe...

TERRIBLE SHIPWRECK AND LOSS OF TWO HUNDRED SOULS. Wo have the melancholy duty of recording Ihe Rudden death of about two hundred people an addition to the list of dreadful casualties by railroad and other menus that have lately proved ho disastrous to human life. The present calamity occurred at sea, on board the ship William and Mary, Captain Slinson, on her passage from Liverpool to New Orleans, with 203 passengers and a cargo of railroad iron. The following is Capt, Stinson's report of the disaster: At 7 A. M., May 3, strong breezes from the southeast nnd cloudy, passed the holo in the Wall. At 12 M., Stirrup Key bore south, ten miles distant, after which the weather became thicker and wind increased, with a heavy sea. At sunset saw nothing of the Keys, supposed we were well to the northward ; after steering west by north from 12 M. At 8 P.

i XL TIDES 01? THE UAKES. The following lettqr from Major H. F. Stick, ney, an old'and respected resident of the Lake country, was written to Win. II. Newton, Esq., Chief Engineer of the Toledo and Cleveland Railroad, in reply to the question addressed by him to Major S.: . Toledo, Feb. 3, 1851. Dear Sir 1 had the . pleasure of receiving yours of the 2Gth. ultimo yesterday, putting to roe several interrogations in relation to the Mi ami river of Lake Erie, at and near Toledo. The Miami riverat Toledo, and indeed as far up as the foot of the rapids, is in effect an arm of Lake Erie. In the greatest freshets in the riv er there is but little rise hero or current on that account. There is a lunar tide here, as regular as on the ocean. The sheei of water of Lake Erie being small, the rise and fall is less in pro portion. The form of the Lake, and the mouth of the Miami bay and river opening to the east, and being at the western extreme of the lake, makes the tide more apparent than at a...

SANTA ANA AND MEXICO. The hero just South of us with the wooden leg has recommenced his career. He has open ed business on his own account, without, part ners. lie coolly talks of the nation whose destinies are in his hands just as if he had ob tained a warrantee deed of the whole concern land, population, and all. He has assumed with out hesitation, and proposes to exercise without reserve, the powers of a Dictator, We publish herewith in our IJavana letter the names of his new diplomatic staff, and a few days since we pave those of his Cabinet, and shall have soon, doubtless, the names of his instruments whom he dignifies with the title of Councillors. By his preliminary edict we learn that a legislative body would only bo in the way in his scheme of government, and therefore it is, in mild phrase, to enter into recess. This is a modest mode of sending those troublesome gentlemen, called legislators, home. Doubtless Mr. Santa Ana thinks they can be better employed there than ' in ...

Removal of the Seminoles. We are glad to learn that President l'ierco deems it ndvisable to refrain from harshness, as far n possible, in the removal of the remnant of the Seminole In dians in Florida. The Survey of the Public Lands, in that State, will bo proceeded with, in order to convince Billy Bowleg and hU adhcr entti that it is essential to their welfare to quiet ly join their brethren west of the Mississippi. By surveying and selling the lands, nnd allowing the Whites to settle upon and clear them, the Indians would soon be literally fenced out of the country. Detroit Daily Times.

He had a lesson to learn by heart, but. instead was amu sing himself by looking out into the garden, and playing with his fingers on the window.--11U governess, Miss Ililliard, an earnest and pi ous person, observed this, and kindly asked him to think of getting his lesson,. The young prince saW,r don't want to.' ' Then,' said Miss Hill, iard, I must put you in the corner.''

f THE CHINESE' REVOLUTION. There is no longer nny doubt China is convul sed to its centre by Revolution, An insurgent army, commencing in the extreme south of the Empire, has swept northward, on a line of five hundred miles in length, till it has overrun half of the country and passed the great river, which, running east and west, divides it nearly in the middle. The commanding general at the head of the rebel army has issued a proclamation, in which ho bids defiance to the reigning dynasty, and demands that the people every where shall flock to his standard, or at least manifest no hos. tility, under penalty of condign punishment. That his language conveys no unmeaning threat is manifest in the quiet submission of numer- ' ous powerful cities and towns, and in the gen eral consternation that every where pervades the royal forces and the great circles of trade. We hear of the precipitate flight of the wealthy, the closing of marts of business, and a general fever of excitement among...
