His presentiment was too just; and, though I had heard of instances of the kind before, this was the first that came under my immediate observation. I ran up to the spot where he lay; he was bleeding profusely; his breast was penetrated by two bullets, and a third passed through his forehead. His death was singular, and it appeared as if he was resolved to fulfil the destiny that he had marked out for himself. Our light troops were gradually retreat. ing on their reinforcements, and were within a few paces of the columos of infantry; his men repeatedly called out to himn to retire with the rest, but he, either not hearing, or not attending to what they said, remained, with his back against a pine-tree, dealing ont death at every shot. Pressed as we were for time, we dug him a deep grave at the foot of the tree where he so gallantly lost his life, and we laid him in it without form or ceremony.- Reminiscences of a Subaltern.

A Raft on the Danube.-The foundation is of the trunks of enormous trees, so firmly attached, that there candot be the remotest fear of their separation. When the whole cargo of planks is received on board, the surface is covered with them, and there becomes a smooth and level walk of above 150 feet in length, an extremely acceptable change for those who have been long pent in coaches. The proper way of enjoying the excursion is to order a but of planks to be put together on the raft, for your own exclusive convenience, for your fellow-travellers are chiefly artisans seeking employment; and the common hut, in case of rain or heat, is so crammed with old great coats, hats, cheese, and beer, that the compound of smells is villanous. In your hut, however, and with a dear and cherished friend, take your place on the raft. When this mass of timber, with its animal curiosities, is once loosened from its mooring, and in the iniddle of the rapid Danube, it glides along swiftly and silently; and then, with heaven's breath upon one's face, may he enjoyed morning and evening views, sunsets, with castles and mountains, that Claude might have painted.-Ramble among the Musicians of Germany.

The White-headed or Bald Eagle.-From Wilson's “ American Ornithology:"-Elevated on the high dead limb of some gigantic tree that commands a wide view of the neighbouring shore and ocean, he (the eagle) seems calmly to contemplate the motions of the various feathered tribes that pursue their busy avocations below: the snow-white gulls slowly winDowing the air; the busy tringæ coursing along the sands; traios of ducks streaming over the surface; silent and watchful cranes, intent and wading; clamorous crows; and all the winged multitudes that subsist by the bounty of this vast liquid magazine of Dature. High over all these, hovers one whose action instantly arrests his whole attention. By his wide curvature of wing, and sudden suspension in air, he knows him to be the fish hawk, settling over some devoted victim of the deep. His eye kindles at the sight, and, balancing himself with balf-opened wings, on the branch, he watches the result. Down, rapid as an arrow from heaven, descends the distant object of his attention ; the roar of its wings reaching the ear as it disappears in the deep, making the surgts foam aronod! At this moment, the eager looks of the eagle are all ardour; and, levelling his neck for flight, he sees the fish hawk once more emerge, struggling with bis prey, and mounting in the air with screams of exultation. These are the signals for our hero, who, launching into the air, instantly gives chase, aod soon gains on the fish hawk; each exerts his atmost to mount above the other, displaying in these rencontres the most elegant and sublime aerial evolutions. The unencumbered eagle rapidly advances, and is just on fthe point of reaching his opponent, when, with a sudden scream, probably of despair and honest execration, the later drops his fish; the eagle, poising himself for a moment, as if to take a more certain aim, descends like a whirlwind, snatches it in his grasp ere it reaches the water, and bears his illgotten booty silently away to the woods.

Fatal Effects of Drunkenness.-By the coroner's return to the Manchester quarter sessions, July, 1831, it appears that thirty-nine men and women in that town and immediate neighbourhood, have died, within the last quarter, from the effects of drinking ardent spirits; and that four carters have lost their lives by careless driving upou the road, when in a state of intoxication.

Upas Poison. The common train of symptoms is, a trembling of the extremities, restlessness, erection of the hair, affection of the bowels, drooping and faintness, slight spasms and convulsions, hasty breathing, and increasing flow of saliva, spasmodic contractions of the pectoral and abdominal muscles, retching, vomit. ing, great agony, laborious breathing, violent and repeated convulsions, death. The action of the Upas poison is directed chiefly to the vascular system. The volume of the blood is accumulated in a preternatural degree in the large vessels of the thorax. The circulation appears to be exactly from the extremities, and thrown upon the viscera near its source. The lungs, in particular, are stimulated to excessive exertions. The vital viscera are oppressed by an intolerable load, which produces the symptoms above described, while, in the extremities, a proportionate degree of torpor takes place, accompanied by tremors, shiver. ings, and convulsions. The Dalives of Macassar, Borneo, and the Eastern Islands, when they employ this poison, make use of an arrow of bamboo, to the end of wbich they attach a shark's tooth, which they throw from a blow pipe or sompit. The Upas a pears to affect different quadrupeds with nearly eqnal force, proportionate, in some degree, to their size and disposition.- Memoirs of Sir Stamford Raffles.

The Horrors of IVar.- We halted for the night near Pyrnes. This little town, and the few wreiched inhabitants who had been induced to remain in it under the faithful promises of the trench generals, shewed fearful signs of a late visit from a barbarous and merciless foe. Young women were lying in their houses brutally violated; the streets were strewed with broken furniture, intermixed with the putrid carcasses of murdered peasants, mules, and donkeys, and every description of filth, that filled the air with pestilent nausea. The few starved male inhabitants who were stalking amid the wreck of their friends and property, looked like so many skeletons, who had been permitted to leave their graves for the purpose of taking vengeance on their oppressors; and the mangled" body of every Frenchman, who was unfortunate or imprudent enough to stray from his column, shewed how religiously they performed their mission. -Kincaid's Adventures in the Rifle Brigade.

Travelling in the Air.-At a recent sitting of the Academy of Sciences in Paris, M. Navier read a paper, in refutation of a work by M. Chabrier, on aerial travelling. M. Navier proves, by inquiries and experiments as to the motion of birds in the air, that, if a man were able to put together at once all the physical power which he has in eight hours, it would not be sufficient to support him with any mechanical apparatus in the air five minutes.-In America, M Genet and his coadjutors, and in France three rivals, Messrs. Dupis Delcourt, Chabrier, and Vallot, are all busily engaged in the construction of machines for travelling in the air, and are all equally sanguine as to the resalt! Of course, the natnre of their respective inventions has not yet transpired.

Puffing books through the medium of a ghost. - A bookseller of Defoe's acquaintance had, in the trade phrase, rather overprinted an edition of “Drelincourt on Death," and complained to Defoe of the loss which was likely to ensue. This experienced bookmaker, with the purpose of recommending the edition, advised his friend to prefix the celebrated narrative of Mrs. Veal's ghost, which he wrote for the occasion, with such an air of truth, that although, in fact, it does not afford a single tittle of evidence, properly so called, it nevertheless was swallowed so eagerly by the people, that Drelincourt's work on death, which the supposed spirit recommended to the perusal of her friend Mrs. Bargrare, instead of sleeping on the bookseller's shelf, moved off by thousands at once ; the story, incredible in itself, and unsupported as it was by evidence or inquiry, was received as true, merely from the cunning of the narrator, and the addition of a number of adventitious circumstances, which no man alive could have conceived as having occurred to the mind of a person composing a fiction. --Sir Walter Scott; Family Library, No. XVI.

Coursing defined.-The following definition of harehunting is given by a writer of 1616:-" It is not worthie peece of seruice for fiue or sixe men in the countrey (whose dwellings are foure or fiue miles asunder) to make mad match to meet together on such and such a morning, to hunt or course a hare, where if shee be hunted with hounds, shee will lead them such a dance, that perhaps a horse or two are kill'd, or a man or two spoil'd, or hurt with leaping hedges or ditches, at the least after foure or five days preparation, and some ten pounds charge among them, horses and dogs, besides an infinite deale of toyle and trouble, and an innumerable number of oaths and curses; after this great deal of doo, the main purchase can be no more than a poor silly hare, which is but a dry meate, and will take more butter in the basting than the carcase is worth."

Imprisonment for Debt.-In Whitecross-street prison there are at this time (Jan. 26, 1832) between five and six hundred persons confined for debt, chiefly small sums. Among these, the case of John Rayland, of Enfield, deserves particular notice. This man, a day labourer, having a wife and three children, and being out of employ, was unable to pay a debt of five pence. He was therefore consigned to Whitecross street prison for ten days, which cost his creditor 13s. 8d., the county 108., and the parish, to support his family, 10s, more; making, in all, 11. 13. 8d. Surely, such laws ought to be altered ; and we are glad to find, that a petition to parliament, for this purpose, has been prepared by Mr. James Wright, to be presented to the house of commons by John Wilks, Esq., and to the house of lords by His Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex.

Wholesale Murder of Slaves.- The Fair Rosamond and Black Joke, tenders to the Dryad frigate, have captured three slave vessels, which originally had 1100 slaves on board, but of which they succeeded in taking only 396 to Sierra Leone. It appears that the Fair Rosamond had captured a lugger, with 106 Africans, and shortly afterwards saw the Black Joke in chase of two other luggers; she joined in the pur. suit, but the vessels succeeded in getting into the Bonny river, and landed 603 slaves before the tenders could take possession of them. They found on board only 200; but ascertained that the monsters in command of the slaves had thrown overboard 180 slaves, manacled together, four of whom only were picked up, with irons upon them. Such scoundrels as these should be tried for piracy.-Hampshire Telegraph.

Virgil.-- Virgil was of a swarthy complexion, tall and athletic, but of a weakly constitution. He was 80 bashful, that, when people crowded to see him, he would slip into some passage or shop to avoid them. He appeared to have had litile regard for the fair sex, and it is on this account that we do not discover in his poems the character of one good woman; pay, he rather refers to them with contempt. His life, however, was as chaste as his style ; and those who criti. cise his poetry, can never find a blemish in his morals. With respect to his fortune, he was affluent; and, as Juvenal remarks, we should have wanted the strongest paintings and the noblest strokes in the Æneid, if Virgil had not been blessed with the comforis and conveniences of life. His studies, sickli. ness, and the troubles he met with, turned his hair gray before the usual time. He had a hesitation in his speech-his aspect and behaviour were rustic and ungraceful. He was of a thoughiful and melancholy temper, loved retirement and contemplation, and was an enemy to those talkative impertinents, from which no court, pot even that of Augustus, could be free.Valpy's Classical Library.

Proofs of IVitchcraft.-In the year 1663, an old dame, named Julian Coxe, was convicted, chiefly on the evidence of a huntsman, who declared, on his oath, that he laid his greyhounds on a hare, and, coming up to the spot where he saw them mouth her, there he found, on the other side of a bush, Julian Coxe lying panting and breathless, in such a manner as to convince him that she had been the creature which afforded him the course. The unhappy woman waslexecuted on this evidence.-Sir Walter Sc: tt: Family Library, No. XVI.
