pi" THE INTELLIGENCE OF ANIMALS In Iho forests of Tartary ami South A merica wnerc live wild horse is grcgarotis, there are herds ol five or six hundred which being ill-prepared for fighting, or in deed for any resistance, anil knowing, that tneir saiety is in llignt, when thoy sleep, appoint one in rotation who acts as sentinel while the rest are asleep. If man approach es, the sentinel walks towards him as if to tcconnoiler, or see whether he can be de terred from coming near; if the man contin ues, no neigiis aloud and in a peculiar tone which rouses the herd, all gallop away, the sentinel bringing up the rear. Nothing can be more judicious or rational than this arrangement, simple as it is.

Several contractors on the Noilli Branch CaiLil, who had taken contracts at the last all letting, and who afterwards throw them Aip, and again took them, contrary to law, at private contract, of the old Commission ers, at n great advance of former prices, have memorialised the legislature, com plaining of " oppression" on the part of tho present canal Commissioners, because they will not fulfil these illegal contracts. It -does appear to us, that it required the most consumate impudence in these contractors to complain, in this case, for they know, whon they entered into theso contracts, that the Commissioners had no lawful au thority to make them without jjrcuoMs;j& lie notice, and that if such were made they were null and void; and cer...

For instance, as a specimen of liis tact, in this way, we would mention a singlo article published in his last paper, of about twenly lines, in reference to us, in which there are not less than seven or eight gross derelictions from tho truth, without the least particle of ground or evidence to justify himself in his assertions ; in fact tho whole articles is a tissue of falsehoods from beginning to cud, evidently the oflspring of a distempered and depraved mind, and m...
