EutUcroua Jtlistmotaliott. [Communicated.] The "United States Gazette" copies an article from the "Plymouth Memorial," giving an account of the celebration of the 218th. Anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrim | Fathers, in which the writer, m paying a compliment to Dr. Thomas Robieon the Orator of the day, observes "that if they (the (Pilgrim fathers) could have been permitted tc be present; the adress would 'be to them, rAe word filthy spoken; an apple of gold in a PFICHER of silver." For the benefit of those of your readers who seldom, or never read the Bible, I refer them to the passage intended to be quoted—25th Chap. Proverbs 11 til verse. Whether the error is chargeable to friend Chandler, or the writer of the arti. le, or in the Editor of the "Plymouth .Memorial" your correspondent docs not presume to decide. A cunning yankee would make a "shrewd guess" at the cause of the mistake. At a '-festive celebration/' a general "Thanksgiving" or other "merry making" matt...

Appnliii£ Dfaastor a? Sea—Twenty Lirc-M Losi. It is our melancholy duty to record Oil" of the most heart rending occurreties which has been our lot to narrate. The event has plunged into a watery grave, and without the warning of a moment, no less than twenty individuals, many of wliom have left widows, with, in the whole near fifty children. About one o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, three pinnaces, havingoti board the men employed at the Breakwater, left the Chatham hulks, which is moored inside that structure as a rendezvous for the men; the sea was then running very high, and the wind blowing a fearful gale from S. S. \V. The boats were destined for the quarry at Or?ston, but on their way thither they encountered tremendous seas, and especially so on approaching the Coble Buov, where the run ot the ebb tide from Catwater meeting the seas, produced a very heavy swell and dangerous surface. W hen about tv.o-llurds of the way across the sound, a man in the lending boat called ...

THE RHINOCEROS AND ITS SENTINEL. The black Rhinoceros, unlike the timid white one, is a dreadful adversary to meet in hunting, and is often accompanied by a sentinel to give him warning, a beautiful green backed and blue winked bird about the size of a jay, which sits on his horns. When he is standing at his case among the thick bushes, or rubbing himself as gainst a dwarf tree, stout like himself, the bird attends him, that it may either feed on the insects which either fly about him, or which are found in the wrinkles of his head or ne.-k. The creeping hunter, sr.-althily approaching on the leeward side catefutly notes the motions of the sentinel bird; for he may hear though he canr.oi see the rhinoceros behind his leafy screen. If the monster moves his head slightly, and without alarm, the bird flies from bis horns to his shoulder, remains ;hcre a short time, and then returns to its former perch; but if" the bird , from its clevatid position better eyes, not-s the appro i...

PROSPECTUS. OF THE HARRISBURG CHRONICLE. There being nothing which so much enhances the value of a public journal as early and faithful news, the editor and proprietor of the Harrisburg Chronicle has made such arrangements, as will not fait to make his paper equal, if not superior to any other in the place, during the ensuing year, in this particular. The sessions of the State Legislature the coming session, promise to be unusually intsresting. The policy of the new State administration, must excite curiosity in the minds of all such as take any part in the politics of the day, inasmuch as the friends of the new Governor have found much fault with the administration oi Joseph Ritner, though one of the best Governors Pendsylvania ever had; and it remains to be seen from what this winter will develope, whether the people have made a wise change. Besides the, interest |which the policy of the new administration will give rise to, the duties of this winter's Legislature will be such...
