From 'I he Federal Re/iublican. ova OWN TIMES. After the world has witnessed such tremendous revolutions as have been observed at the present day—when kings and emperors have been, as it were, dice in the hand&amp;'of destiny— When the lives of thousands, and tens of thousands, the conflagration of cities, and the subversion of continents have been made to depend on a smile or a frown; alter such awful scenes have passed before our eyes, it is not to be expected, on the return of peace, of quiet and of good order, that the same deep interest should be felt in the contemplation of public alfairs. To say that our daily journals are not now so interesting as they have been, is only to say in other Words, that the world is now at peace* that the white wings of Mercy’s dove are seen twinkling in the firmament, where we lately discovered the dark impending cloud and the flashes of the thunderbolt Yet by some wise and sagacious heads, all this is set down to the dullness of editors...

From the JY. York Daily Advertiser. A short time since, we published an account of the discovery of a Snake, enclosed in a solid mass of hard coal, at the depth of one hundred and fifty feet from the surface of the ground, in a coal pit in England. The following article contains a parallel case of a different animal enclosed in a different, hut not less cxtraordinaty prison, in this country. It is not yet satisfactorily ascertained upon what principle certain species of the animal creation, apparently requiring air for the purposes of respiration, can for a long time exist when totally excluded from the atmosphere. Among many instances of this nature, may be mentioned one which occurred some weeks since at Middletown, in Connecticut. At Mr. Stephen Miller’s mill in that place, was sawed an uncommonly large pine log, from which six boards were taken out at each side. The log contained two hundred and twenty rings, or grains, one of which is formed annually by the growth of the tree. ...

If, according !• the Pythagorean doc* nine of transmigration, this recluse had once been a man, and jf the vend of an enchanter could have restored him to hi* human form and voice, it,would have been pleasant to learn from him some particulars of our country at tba distance of two centuries past, and i isten to garrulous old age recounting the history of days of yore. He was, probably, when released from prison, the oldest living creature in the Unite&lt;T States, Admitting the humanity of the toad, conjectures might vary, whether in hia pristine form, he might have been an Indian Sachem of the Peipiod or M&lt; hegan tribe, or one of the oldest settlers of I’lynjouth, New Yoik- or Virginia A calculation of probabilities, founded upon the supposed period of his incarceration in the tree, would naturally in dine minute chronologists to the adoption oft he former conjecture in preference to the latter.
