A well was heard to give forth, in a a ar­ ticulate voice, answers to any quesiion which a per­ son standing over its mouth ehoso to put. The port of this extraordinary phenomenon spread far and near, and thousands of people came to witnes question asked at a little distance from its margm was not answered, but when the questioner spoke so near to it that his voice could enter the well, answer in a human voice was given almost immedi­ ately afterwards. “ The thing continued to be a wonder for days, and people camo from a considerable distance luestions and hear the replies of the talking ,t length the mystery Was cleared up.

W e never apply the term to what is fluid or flexible ; we do not gay a massive river, or a massive pool j we do not speak of roolassqs massive. Perhaps by stretching propriety a tie, one conld speak of a massive heap of dot but you might flatten and knead it to a t -sheet of paste, a n d ' then, though not diminished in bulk, it would bo massive no longer. Mr. WebstePs character of mind, 1 fear, is of too fluid a nature, too easily kneaded and flattened to be pre- pjrly called massive. A year or two since, ho was a vehement Wilmot proviso man. and in his spec-eh claimed the proviso as a measo c-jiaage ; he has since been moulded intb an anti- proviso man, and scouts it as an absurd invention of the northern democTucy. A year or two since h e de- •lared in his Marshfield speech, that the south had tyrannized over the north by the help of faithless northern men ant} by northern votes. This winter he has been kneaded and flattened into quite a diff'e- rent -hape, and ho new declares in Congress, that ho tb'Dk?the south has endured grievous wrongs a t the hands of the north, and that he is w illing'io give them a government for the territories without a pro­ hibition of slavery, three new slave stales in Texas, law fir payipg the expenses of sending off their ee negroes, and a- law for hunting and catch­ ing those who are mot emam-ipatad. The truth is, that Mr. Webster is the bond-slave of the Innlsof the mills. They have been really alarmed by the threats of the south ; they really feared that the south would sep irate from the L'nion, and that they iho-al l lose the market for their calicoes and ging- bams and negro cloths.

After de­ scribing these records and the surveys of the land which were made, Mr. Jones n ext notices the large grants called Missions. These are generally bnt erroneously supposed, he says, to belong to tho church.

HaTejustpublishedfortho use of High Schools Academies, a Treatise on PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY, Comprising Hydrology, Geognosy, Geology, Mete logy. Botany, Zoology, and Anthropology. By A. : rlDgton. Edited by Charles Burdett, Esq. This work Is designed lor general readers, and higher classes in sendn4ties. It differs in plan from treatise hitherto published or annonneed. While It c fuay excludes the details given in ordinary school Geo­ graphies, it embraces those parts of the various tcienc mentioned in the above title -which are not foreign to the subject, and of general interest to the numerous classes for whom the work is designed. , We have numerous recommendations similar tnowivgfrom Her. D r . SpRiocE, of Albany : “ I hsTB looked through a Treatise on Physical Geo­ graphy by A. Barrington, edited ty Charles Burdett, and havo been struck with its li T he C ri cities of the C ode , A' c .—This is part of the title of a pa-mphlet of some thirty pages, which was laid upon our table tho other day, but which we should not probably have opened, if our attention had not bien arrested by some specimens of Latin on the title page, wKlcii were calculated tu provoke cariosity. The title rea.ls thus : “ Crudities of the f.'ode and the Codifiers, by J nvenus Alumnus ” We will not presume to conjecture what sort of an alumnus that is, but if the writer I sa graduate from any literary institution, we are eonfident that tho birch could not have flourished in its vicinity. Im. mediately following this precious piece oflatinity, wo read the following lino, which is given as a quotation from Horace : Dulce est decipere in loco. This is one of the saddest illustrations we can re­ member of the danger of quoting a language one does not un-l.-rstand Tho writer evidently could not have had the remotest notion of the meaning of the line he tried to quote, or ho could never have mistaken desipere for dscipero. We naturally frit but little intere.-<t to know what sort of Koglish the man wrote who found the use of such Latin as adorned this title page any convenience to him, nevertheie.s3 we turned ever the leaves, a httle curious to .cec if it contained nny more speci- meats of learning l*ke the tw«j we have mt^ntioned Wo did not have to look far to satisfy ourselves that the title page h ad don.- the writer no injustico. The ancient and much worn q-iotation always .-mployc l to dt-aounoe the technical habitsof Attornies is written Cantorformularuin, ^c. ■\ little further on, we are told that “ in the niches where once reposed the Warning of. Mitford,-‘’tory, ■Vrchbol'd, Chitty, faueders, VW-nlwortb, is now written the damning sentence, Troja fait-\ If the writer had ever been on a lamiliar footing with Vir­ gil, or had evi-r met the phrase he intended to quote, ••at home,” he w-juld have written lli turn fait. If he had not written till he-knew what he wanted to say, however, ho would not probably havo used A gain,speaking of what our forefathers provided in their constitution, this juvenusadda that “ they, unojlato, also incorporated the common law of Eng­ land as the law of our oommonwealth.” It would bo a comfort to know whence that Jlalo was borrowed, and what it was borrowed for. Ev.jn if it wore Latin, we think it would cost a greater efl’ort to translate it, in connexion with the context, into Intelligible Eng­ lish, than was req'iirod for the translation of Env-.-h L!so perverse is this writer’s propensity to misuse the language he quotes, that when be does wrong words, he puts the right ones in w for example, he says et id omne genua ; no other Jifi.'atiua of the original occurring to him probabl at the time. We wonder ho had not written it GENUS omhe, for when ono does not know them e mg of a line, it is much easier to remember the rangement of it than how to spell the words It composed of. 1- must not be snppt Spits against the Latin tongue in particular, foi uses tho French just as bad ; for exai “ nick and prii •' master went will hardly believe, what is tho fact, that the lidb of this pamphlet is more execrable if pos.siblo, ihe Latin or the French. Hut after the speei- mons we havo given, no one can fool much interest to know how it is or can be worse. The author con­ trives with such knowledge of spelling and grammar as ho could command, to convey the idea that ho was dissatisfied with the code, though he does not succeed so well in showing that he knows anything about it The only ground of complaint which ho states with any distinctness, is ono which ha naturally attaches more Importaaee to, than most of his readers will. Ho says tho new code is driving tho more attornies, who *-never speak in oourt..” from the profession. Un­ less they speak better than Javenus writes, the loss wiU not be of that irreparable and overwhelming char­ acter -which the profession may not hope to survive. Though wo are rather friendly to the reforms which have been instituted by the late commissioners of practice, we could have readily helped the writer to a ■far weightier cause of compiaint against them than any which he has specified. This pamphlet is decidedly the worst fruit that the new code has pro­ duced thus far, to the best of our knowledge, and it will take the commissioners much longer to get ab­ solution for this, than If they were to extirpate twen­ ty generations ol attornies like Master Juvenus from the legal profession. the Sierra Nevada and the river Joaquin audo'm p riies ten sitios, or leagues square, conoedod, , as the grant expresses, “ in consideration of the pub- • late of the packet ship ; owned by that t'entieman ” The only *‘ eumhhona or limilahona\ contained In gniDvii in VnldyniiiV) whicli could aDcrli the vali- Uitj- of cue title, are, that in the grants Bsadvbj of the governors, a period of time, ona year, was fixed, within which the grantee should commence im- provemsnts on the grant. In case of 1-iilura, how­ ever, the grant was not thereby void, but open to de­ nouncement by other persons. This limitation was not contained in such of the grants made in the time Of Michsltorena as I have oxamined, nor is it pre­ scribed in the law. No doubt, however, the condi­ tion was fulfilled in most instances where it was in­ serted, unless in a few cases where tho lands conceded ■Tore in parts of the country infested by the wild In­ dians, and its fulfilment consequently impossible In fact, a.i far as I underst.iod, it was more customary to occupy the land in anli-ipation of the grant.
