keep out of night. If I were dinposcd to compli ment, I might say, so is the sun ; but the source ol light would be degraded by comparison with ft merely ambitious man. For my own part, I would simply 'Lake the goods Ihe gods provide me,'and glide through a huppy life, in cultivating, not so much ray ' partical acres,' for I confess myself no farmer, as my own heart. The little society I would have must be associates, not rivals nor inferiors. But you would struggle, and prefer rising above the ignorant weak to being* surpassed by the educated strong. This is your country. The Cali. fornians arc too indolent to strive with an energetic man, and will quietly allow him to ride over them, provided he is not rough shod. They have oil the pride ^Spaniards, half the quick intellect of French, men, and more than the terrible revengefulness of Italian bravo. At the same time, tho laziest Turk that breathes through life in a cloud of smoke, would open his eyes at these lumps of Califor...

r++^** The Xcw York Courier des Etats says that Mr. Glaty, of that city, has a child, which affords an example of the freaks of nature, as follows:—The child is hardly 22 months old, and 30 inches in height. Recently it grew five inches in three days, and then, aflcr twelve days' intermission, it grew four inches in a week. As the Courier is informed, by M. Legrand,the French physician who attended it, it is the moat curious phenomenon ever observed; most rapid growth known being three inches in eight days. We add with regret that thin abnormal development has exhausted the strength of the child, which is reduced to such a stale that the circulation of the blood can be seen in its veins. It lives only by the nursing it receives, nnd they despair of raising it. " My brethren and friends," s&id a preacher out West, " it is necessary to make a great demonstration. We live in an ago remarkable for mighty inventions, not the least of which is the patent pill which my eldest...

Extraordinary Couraoi..—On tho 3J ult., a youth about 18 years of ago, son of a gentleman well known in Manchester, proceeding along the Ncwbury road, when he was either met or overtaken by a dog which bit tin Httlo finger of his left hand, ho immediately made after tho dog, which bore every appearance of being in a rabid etatC' and killed it; then remembering tho fatal conse. quenCL-9 from llie bile of a mad dog, and thinking I:c might have imbibed the hydrophobic poison, he deliberately took out a pim knife and cut off the finger by the first joint. After this ho went lo the office without taking any farther notice of the matter, and went about his usual business without giv. ing intimation to any ono what had happened.

Judge Tom. Corwis—Practical Legislation,— H , an old and respectable citizen of Frank. !in county, related to us eome years since the follow ing anecdote of Gov. Corwin, which we do not recollect to have ever seen in print. At ihe time the " Wagon Boy'* was first sent to the Legislature of the good people of Warren, lie found a law on the Statue book providing for the punishment of certain offences by public whipping. It was no unusual thing at that tldyt lo wa a whipping post in every Court Howe yard, when?, whenever occasion required, the ^ealers of pigs and chickens were drawn up by the Sheriff, and received "t!iirtv.i:inc hislics un the bare back, well laid on." Tom was made chairman of the Judiciary Com. tnilice in the House; and being', as is well known, a man v\ ho U dead set ag»in»( all t,uch relics of barbariti/n as public whipping, forthwith brought in a bill to repeal theaforcbaiJ enactment.
