Cai-e Island, July 27th, 1847. Dear Spy:—I promised at the close of a forme! letter to write to you again and give you some of the sayings and doings of the visitors on this sea washed Island. I presume that joarjive thousand readers knuw where Cape Island is, if not, I can inform them that it is situated between ihe Gulf of Mexico and the St. John's river, and if this is not sufficiently explicit, just advise them to step on board the steamer at Philadelphia, and be crowded and jostled and sea sickened for a few hours, and they will be safely landed on the Island amongst the . assembl y composed of persons worn down by wasting dis. ease—of grim, hollow-eyed consumption,—of the grey headed victim of rheumatism—the gay and fashionable bello in her teens—the steady matron of forly—the care-worn Merchant, the serious look, ing Purson—the chivalrous Lieutenant, and it fact, all classes and grades of society, who meel here to spend the dog days " and for other purposes. 1 ' But I am wa...

Insect Slavery.—The most remarkable fac connected with the history of ants, is the propensity possessed by certain species to kidnap tho worker! of other species and eompe . 1 them to labor for tho benefit of the community, thus using, them com. pletely as slaves; and, as far as we yet know, tbe kidnappers are red or pale colored a«ts,, and the slaves, like the ill-treated natives of Africa, are of a jet black. The time for capturing slaves,extends over a period of about len weeks, and never .commences until the male and female ore about enierg; ing from the pnpa stute; and thus the ruthless marauders never interfere with the continuation of the species. This ' instinct seems especially provided; for were the slave ants created for no other end than to fill the station of slavery to which they ippear to be doomed still, even that office must fail were tho attacks to be made on their nests before he winged myriads have departed,-or are departing, diarged with the^ nty of continuing...

Home Manufacture.—One of the most magnificent trunks we have ever seen, is one manufactured by Mr. J. C. Pfahler, of this place. It is superbly mounted on the outside, and within are several apartments adapted to the convenience of the trav. ellcr. One of these, which we should denominate the port folio department, is to us a new feature, and one,' the convenience of which no traveller will question. By a very simple transition, the trunk is converted into a very handsome writing desk, and, presto! the traveller may imagine himsr tf seated by >iis escritoir at home, penning duns or distichs, letters or love billets, as the occasion might dictate. And now, reader, if you are going to Cape May, ot Niagara, or Saratoga,—in short, if you are going to travel, you want just such a trunk as this, and Mr. Pfahler is just the man to supply you.
