P. RUSSELL'S PJTEMT. FKANCIS MELLUS, HAVING purchased the patent right of the above valuable invention, for tbe purpose of supplying tho counties ot Los Angeles, San Bernardino and San Diego, is now prepared to execute all orders with which be may be favored. The public are aware that it has been the study of scientific men, architects and builders, for many years to discover an article lor Hoofing purposes, that will withstand sudden changes of climate, be impervious to water, and of sure protection agaiust fire. The inventor of thjs I'oofuig labored many years to combine articles whieh would answer the above purpose and obviate tbe diilicuUics of rust nnd decay attendant upon tin and shingles, and tbe destruction by the sun and frost, of the various compositions usiid for roofing. This be succeeded in doing, and now, alter six years of the severest trial we would invite the careful attention of all interested in such matters, believing that they will be fully convinced of its practical value both for durability and economy, in which respects wc believe that its equal is not at present known. Tbis roofing can readily be applied to roofs of every description, either steep or flat, and can be put on over shingles or tin, being much cheaper than the first and at balf the co3t of the latter. Two coats of the mastic put on over an old leaky tin roof, will mike it as good as new at one-third of the cost. In preparing this roofing a heavy drilling or canvass is used, wbich is thoroughly saturated with a perfectly water proof propuration, after which it receives a thick coating, upon both sides, of the flour of soapstone, which sets into the texture oftbe canvass, and gives it a firm body, making it very elastic and durable. After the canvass, as prepared, is put upon tbe roof, another coating of mastic,which ia thoroughly filled witb sand, is given it, making it fireproof in every respect. By exposure, this coating becomes firm and solid, giving you a roof that can be walked upon with perfect impunity, and as durable as anything known; and we do most candidly and unhesitatingly believe, far superior to anything of the kind yet discovered; and after a severe test of many years, stand as reliable aud good as when first put on. without change or decay. All that we ask is, that a careful examination may be given it, and we feel convinced that it will bear all the recommendation which we After of it.

The Pittsburg Post, alluding to the one bun- dreth anniversary of old Fort Duquesne, says:— One hundred years ago there was not a single white man in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois Territories. Then what is now lhe most flourishing part of America was as little known as the country around the mountains of the moon. It was not until 1769, tbat tha "Hunter of Kentucky,'' the gallant aud adventurous Boone, left his home in North Carolina to become the first pettier of Kentucky.. The first pioneers in Ohio, did uot settle until twenty yours alter this time. A hundred years ago Canada belonged to France, aud the whole population of the United Suites did not exceed a milliou aud a halfof people. A hundred years ago the great Frederick of Prussia was performing Ihose great exploits wbich have made h m immortal in military annals, and with his lit- :J-e monarchy was sustain ing a single-handed contest witb Russia, Austria and France—tbe three great powers of Europe combined. A hundred years ago Napoleon was not born, and Washington was a young and modest Virginia colonel, and the great events of two worlds, in which these two great but dissimilar men took leading parts, were then scarcely foreshadowed. A bundled years ago the Union was tbe most loyal part ofthe British Empire, and ou the political horizon no speck indicated the struggle which, within a score of years thereafter, established the greatest republic of tiie world. A huudred years ago there wen; but four newspapers in America, steam engiucs had not been imagined, and railroads aud telegraphs bad not entered into the remotest conceptions of iran. Wheu we come to look back at it through the vista of history we liud tiiat to the century which has passed bas been alloted more important eveuts in their bearing upon the happiness of the world than almost auy other which has elapsed since the creation. A hundred years hence what will be the developments? lt is past finding out except in one thing—a thought which astonished Xerxes when he stood upon Mount A thos—all. with but few ex ceptions, now living will be dead, ton was very unsociable, and even irritable wheu pressed into'cijuveraa'ion- Kirwan, though copious and eloquent in public addresses, was meagre and dull in colloquial its,' course. Virgil was heavy in conversation. La Fontaine appeared heavy, coarse and stupid ; be could not speak aud describe what he bad seen; but then he was tbe model of poetry. Chaucer's science was more agreeable than bis conversation, Dryden's conversation was slow uud dull, his Im- mo! saturnine and reserved.

How strange it must appear to loreigners, wdio hear our pams of praise to Washington, "the Father of bis Country," "the Example for American youth," " the unselfish Patriot," as offered upon every fit occasion—and yet Congress, wbich is supposed to represent tbe people, has millions to offer for the acquiring of unwilling subjects, but not wherewithal to purchase the last resting-place of Washington. The following, from tbe Buffalo Commercial, is very pithy and exactly iu point: Fanny Kemble and the Mount Vernon Fuse — A committee of ladies from the Mount Vernon As. sociation waited upon the lady, at her apartments at tbe St. Dennis Hotel, one mcrning of this week, to solicit the proceeds of one of her Shakspearean readings, in aid of the Monument Fund. The case was very elaborately stated by the chairman oftbe committee, and tbe 'Mast ofthe Kernbles," after beariug all that was to be heard, drew herself up to the entire longitude of ber magnificent proportions, aud said with a frown : "Lad.iee, 1 respect your motives, but have no toleration for the means you are resorting to to perpetuate the memory of George Washington. If win vjumcj ia 1,0 poor, or too mean, or loo un grateful to take upon itself, through the National Legfelature; so obvious a duty, better that Mount Vernon be sold as a cattle market, than that il should be purchased by the proceeds of charily balls, flash newspapers and quack doctors. My bumble abilities are at your service, but with the proviso thut, whatever amount of money they may yield, it shall be presented to Congress as tbe first donation, to enable them to discharge a duty; which ought to be dscharged by them or not at j pose of ascertaining the views of Senators in re talked or ] gard to Mr. Sliiie.l'a proposition placing in tb< haudsoft.be President thirty millions of dollars an un installment for the purchase of Cuba, is looked upon as a matter of gler and others, bub*** *t importance. Sir. Hunter made a speech against the proposition, and was followed by Messrs. Mason, Clay and Shields. Mr. Douglas took .strong gro'Jud in favor of giving the money to the President. Jie thought the prospect of purchasing gloomy, but was willing to give the ['resident money to make tbe attempt- Mr. Dongks said there was but one 'way to get Cuba, and tbat was on the occurrence of another Black Warrior case, to seize the Island by way of retaliation, and negotiate afterwards, on the basis ol UU Pesseditis. Jefferson Davis was opposed to the idea of for' cible seizure, and favored the propositiou to purchase. Messrs. Gwin, Slidell, IS. tained the purchase policy. Ou the vote being taken, there were only Ave votes against Mr. Slidell's proposition. Mr. Branch, of North Carolina, will, on Tuesday present the report from the Committee ou Foreign : Affairs, for the purchase of Cuba." It is said that the Douglas and Slidell affair is settled, r.iiil tim!. tneeV gentlemen are fast becom-- ing friends. Hope is expressed generally tbat tha individual assumption <f Judge Douglas bas been chastened, aud he wil) hereafter act with the Democratic party. From present appearances, notwithstanding the vituperation of his indiscreet '' friends, such might be the inference. State Midlcat Convention. The special committee appointed to investigate the charges against Beverly li.

A Noui.e PuweE.—The ancestor who laid the foundation ofthe ducal family of Leeds, was a young man named Osborne, who served his apprenticeship to Sir William' Hewitt, a citizen and afterwards Lord Mayor of Loudon in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Sir. William, as the story goes, was a pio maker, aud lived on old London fridge, which, as our readers doubtless Know, was not au open structure like the present edifice, but consisted of a covered way or street on arches, with shops and churches ail along it. During Edward Osborne's apprenticeship—as good or bad luck would have it—the fair Miss Bessy Hewitt, Sir William's ouly daughter, whilst feeding a pet bird, fell from ber father's window into the Thames, and-would have beeu drowned, had not Osborne, being a good swimmer, plunged in after the young lady, and saved her life at the risk of his own. Our readers will easily imagine tbat matters did not end here, but lhat a tender regard for each other soou arose between the daughter and the apprentice of old Sir William, and that while gratitude prompted the young lady to make herself particularly agreeable to Osborne, hie master continued to look upon him with a more favorable eye than ever. Ac- cordi'g y, as soon as Osborne bad served his time. Six William offered him bis daughter's band, which the apprentice of course waa not loath to accept. That daughter's grandson married a daughter of Nevill Lord Latimer, by whom he had asoi. Sir Thomas Osborne, Viscount Latimer, Earl of D.mby, Marquis of Carmarthen, and Duke of Leeds. — ——«H~3«>S»»*— Deau Heads.—The press endures tbe infliction ol dead-beadisni from the pulpit, the bar and the stage ; from corporations,societies and individuals.

There is no interest under the whole heavens that is expected to give so much to sociely, w.tfcOul pay or LBauks, as (In- press. Elopement.—a young lady ol Georgetown, on the road from Stockton lo Sacramento, about 30 miles from the latter place, was eloped with one aigiil last week, in San Joaquin comity, between 1 and 2 o'clock in tlie moraine, She was tile only unmarried lady iu Georgetown, and her '* parients" were opposed to the match, but have come round like sensible people end beBtowed their sanction after the aflair was settled, Why THB " F. F. V.s were so Caixed."—The "■ term " First Families of Virginia" originated at the early settlement of' the State. It was found- impossible to colonize it unless women went there.' Accordingly a ship load was sent out, but no planter was allowed to marry one of them until he had first paid one hundred pounds of tobacco for her passage. When a second ship load came, no one would pay over Beveuty-five pounds for the matrimonial privilege, except it wsm a vcvj superior article. Consequently, tbe descetidanls'of all those who were sold fur one hundred pounds of tobacco were ranked as the First Families- while those who brought but fle7euty-uve pounds are now ranked as the Second Families ; and the reason why no one can ever lind any ofthe second families is because you can't get a Virginian to admit that bis mother ouly brought seventy-five pounds of tobacco.— Petersburg Intel. Death oe Dr. E. A. Tiibi.lek.—Dr. Tbeller died recently at Hornitas, Mariposa couuty. The de. ceased was formerly a resident of Stockton, hay ing arrived at that place in 1853. He was,at two' d ITerent times, connected with the press'of that city, having been both proprietor and editor, first' In the Public Ledger, and afterwards in the Argus Tbe Doctor was ulso at one time Superintendent ofthe Public Schools of that city, He leaves a wife and several children to I ous. luurn hia" Men arc called good fellows if they spend their: money freely—tip-top fellows. And after they liave ImpoVe^iShed themselves for lhe benefit of' others, aud are unable to pay their little debts, they are noiniigef the good fellows aforesaid— they are d—d rascals. Queer world. And if a- man falls to lhe amount of a million, it is alt right ; bul. let him fail to the amount of his board bill, and he is a scoundrel. Promiscuous world. Nicholas Longworth, of Cincinnati, offers to give a silver goblet of the value ol one hundred-' dollars, or that turn of money if preferred, lof grapes that will be superior to Catawba, for tbe: purposes of wine—the decision of the question to' be left to the Ohio "Vine Grower's Association."
