KING OF THE SOUTHERN SEA.-
Ch! the whale is free of the boundless sea;
He lives for a thousand years;
He sinks to rest on the billow's ureast
Nor the roughest tempest fears
The howling blast as it hurries past
Is music to lull him to sleep;
And he scatters the spray in his b oistcrous-play'
As he dashes the icing of the deep.
Oh ! the rare old whale "mid s'.ormand gale
In his ocean home will be
A giant in might where might i? right'
' And king of ibe boundless sea.
A wonderous tale could the rare old whale
Of thc-mightj deep disclose
Of the skeleton forms of bygone stcrrns
And of the treasures that no ona knows;
Ke has -seen the crew vhen the tempest blew
Drop down from the slippery deck
Shaking the tide from his glassy sid?
And sporting with ocean and wreck.
Then the rare old whale &c.
Then the whale shall be still dear 10 mc;

It n Ships. A very impoitant subject is
now under discussion as to the preference or
Iron over Timber vessels and the brstin
formed men and the most' practical talent of
Europe and of the Unitpd Stales will b
brought to the consideration of the question.
It is not Iron steamers alon' but Iron ships
of war of a certain size and Iron merchant
vessels w hich will constitute the subject of
this examination or controvers '. There ia
no deficiency of ship timber which ronders
the use of Iron mdispensible but it is ascer
tained as far as relates to ships of war of the
United States tha the repairs of a Govern-
ment vessol in sixteen years equal the orig-
inal cost ol construction. Thus the Dela-
ware 74 built in 1820. cost 8543 368 yet
the rpp-jirsof said vessel up to 1841. amoun-
ted to 6453 783. The Brandywine Frigate
built in 1825 at an expense of 8299.21 Shad
expended upon her in repairs in the course of
thirteen years no less than 377.665 The
Falmouth built in 1827. cost 864.063 and
the repairs in fourteen years amounted to
8226 120. It is computed that the repiirs
alone of these three ships in a period of less
than s'xteen years amounting to 31.692248
greatest attention to the thickness of the Iron
plats and kntes we should consider a proper
and sti'e Lngth. Two accidents have hap-
pened to two Fron steamers one a Government
vesse1 near iMudagascar. which nearly col-
lapsed and wis only saved by strugthening-
pieces c:: re wed up to the sides ; the other the
Eoerielt a small steamer iotendid for river
navigation which foundered at sea in an at-
tempt to reac.i England Tnero may hare
beun other accidents but generally speaking
the. Iron boats have ben quite successful and
it is decidedly the Interest of Government to
stop repairs on old vessels and proceed grad-
ualiy to supply their places by Iron Steam
Ship3 of War.
Public BAtiis. A Wie Suggestion.
The Mayor of New York has made a sug-
gestion to the Common Council of that city
which if carried out will be greatly promotive
of the health as well as the comfort of his
fe1 low citizens: The followinn-is from the
record of the proceedings of the Council:
Message from the Mayor Public Batfis
A message was received from his honor the
Mayor recommending the establishment of a
public bath either in the neighborhood of
Chatham Square or near the C1I3- Hall; the
building to consist of two stories and to
contain separate baths for males and females;
and in order to mtet the expense of ' fires

Texas -Grapes. A friend of ours receiv-
ed a fw days since. 500 cuttings of the gen-
uine Post Oak Giape of Texas. They are
a puipie grape of fair siz free from pulp
and of excellent flavor either fcrthe table
or making -.vine The vine has a dwarfish
habit with shun joints- general! y a good
indication ofsuperior fruit Mr. Buchannan
has one in his- garden ca Fourth street .
which was set out in 1S40 It is m a very
thrifty conditionand as handsome a vine as
he has growing h will pj'ob:ibly bear this
season ;and we hope will prove an acquisition
to the horticulture of our Valley.
Mr. E. S. Perkins ol Houston who sent
the a bove to Cincinnati has a Vineyard of
five acres at the former place in which are
growing 10000' rooted vines chiefly the "
Posi.Oak-1 with a few of the native Scuprjer-
nong varirty. The latter affords wine of an
extraordinary and peculiar flavor. Dr.
Bartram considered it the best American
variety of the grape.
Our friend' Dr Mosher who has paid
attertion to the subject considers Texas tne
favorite climate of the Vine; and that event-
ually our best vaf leties for both the table and
for wine will be'derived from that country.
Among "others asplendia white grape is
known to abound at the base of the hills
between San Antonio and Austin which
has large berries of delicious flavor and fres
from' pulp with a thin skin ; the bunchesaro
very large and have been known to meas-
ure 14 inches in length. VJe are ajaj i0 .

ensuing winter for the purpose of"procnrinr
quantities of roots of the best varieties of
the Grape and other' indigenous fruits and
ornamental shrubs ol that country.
