_' Blondin and the Prince of Wales.— A despatch to the Herald of Tuesday thus describes how Blondin crossed over the Niagara Falls on Saturday before the PriDce af Wales: When the Prince arrived Blondin bowed to the Prince aud started off, the Prince watching him attentively through a telescope. The Prince had a seat in a rustic pavilion, the Duke of Newcastle and suite sitting in the rear, with Major Teasdale and others sitting crosslegged in front, with no regard to dress. Some Americans will be surprised to see that the Prince and suite dress in clothes very plain and neat, and which would give a Broadway dandy the horrors. Blondin crossed and returned, and the Prince complimented him by clapping his hands in applause ; and then Blondin prepared to carry a man over. To this the Prince objected, and only after repeated assurances would he allow Blondin to start with Coloord, his agent, on his back, pausing only to have a photograph taken. . The Prince watched with breathless i...

Sale op _Aldernet. Cows.—Tea fine Alderney cows, recently imported by Mr. Thomas Richardson, were sold on the 7th _inst., at the Camden and Amboy Pier, No. i North River. There was rather a small attendance at the sale, yet the animals brought very good prices. The highest price paid was $210, and from that down to $110, which was paid for a fine bull calf. The whole lot were sold to persons who reside in this immediate vicinity, with the exception of two heifers, which went to Philadelphia.— Neiv York Life Illustrated. Eccentric Sdicide.—An instance of extraordinary eccentricity occurred lately at Lecure, near Havre. A cap was seen in the water, with a string of corks around it, used as a label, upon which wa3 written, "pull the string, I am at the end of it." The string was pulled, and sure enough there was the late writer of the label, with a paper detailing the cause of his having, made away with himself, carefully corked up in a bottle in his pocket, with his name and addre...

The Damsel at thb Plough.—A rather unusual circumstance occurred at a ploughing match which took place at Vaugueray (Rhone), a young woman, about nineteen, driving a pair of oxen, presenting herself as one of the competitors. At first, some objections were raised to her admission, but, under the circumstances of the case, they were set aside. Marie Ohirat, the young girl in question, had the misfortune to lose her father about ten months ago. He had a lease of a farm at a rent of two thousand francs a year, and when he died left a widow, a little boy, and Marie. The daughter, feeling that to quit the farm in the middle of the lease, would be the ruin of the family, told her mother not to be cast down, for she would undertake to work the land. She applied herself strenuously to the work, and was soon pronounced to be the best conductor of a plough in the commune. That opinion was confirmed at the public competition, as the principal prize was awarded to her. She returned home...

ODE TO CHESAPEAKE BAY Thou Ocean Bay! Though now with sails unfurl'd_, Collecting from the mighty deep, Over thy curling waters sweep The fleets of half the world-There was a day, Nor distant far the time, When in thy solitude sublime, Save light canoe by artless savage plied, No sail was ever seen to skim thy billowy tide. Bright Chesapeake! Though now thy shores are crqwn'd With grassy lawns and fields of grain, That smile, and cheer the laboring swain, And songs go blithely round, That Well bespeak . How pleasant joys may flow—Yet three short centuries ago No human voice was here save savage yell, And dark upon thy waves the forest shadows fell. Mother of waters! Thy noble streams did glide Beneath a woody canopy Through countless years, and still they be All lovely by thy side • As beauteous daughters, And lift their voice on high, And clap their hands as they go by Proud Baltimor 's rich monuments and domes, Columbia's palace halls, and Richmond's pa-,trint homes. ¦ _* ...

Who is a Vagrant ?—Judge Sutherland, of the New York Supreme Court, has given a decision upon the question of what constitutes vagrancy, which is very important ' , and will, no doubt, be hereafter employed both for good and for evil. The decision completely ignores the general opinion that prostitution is of itself vagrancy. The Judge decides that the vagrant laws do not class prostitution as a crime—that it is not a crime, legally, excepting where it leads to such acts as are burthensome to the public ; such as pauperism, &c_, and that, if a prostitute can prove that she has visible means of support, she is entitled to her liberty and must not be molested under the vagrant act
