HORRIBLE SHIPWRECK. Tho Francis Spaight, of 345 tons, Indon with timber, sailed frmn St. John's, New- loundland, on 24th November, bound for Limerick. TI12 crew amounted lo 14 men with the captain & male;lhev had fine wea ihor a few days, but it afterwards blew so hard that 1 hey were obliged to drive before the vvind. At three in the morning of Decern borSd, the vessel, through the carelessness f the helmsman, suddenly broached to, and in less than an hour she lay on her beam ends, the greater part of the crew saving themselves by clinging to tho rig ging. Patrick Cusack and Patrick Behane wore drowned in tho forecastle, and Grif fith, the male, in the after cabin. Tho Ciplainand Mulvillcgot to the fore and main masts, and cut them away; the mizcu top mast went witli them over tho bide, and the ship immediately righted. As soon as she righted, sho settled down 111 the sea, and there was scarcely any of her In no seen except the poop and bulwarks. No situation could be more miserable than that of tho unfortunate crew, standing ancle loop on the wreck, in a winter's night, and clinging to whatever object was nearest, as sea after sea rolled successively over them. On the dawn, they discovered that their provisions had bo-Mi washed overboard, and they had no means of coming at any fresh water. Tho gale continued unabated, and for safety and shelter they gathered into tho cabin under tho. poop. Even hero sho was so deep with water, a dry plank could not bo found, and their onlv rest was by standing close together. At ten in tho forenoon a vessel was descried to the westward, but she stood far away beyond the rc u'h of signal, and was soon out of sight. That day and the next passed away without any change in the weather. On the third, it began to moderate. There were thirteen hands alive nnd not one hud lasled a morsel of food since Iho wreck: and they had only three bottles of wine this woh served out in wine glasses ot long intervals. There was some occasional rain which they wcro not prepared at first for saving, but on the fourth or filth day they got a cistern under the mizen-masts, whore it was filled in two days. The pe nods in which little or no rain loll, were however, often long, so that they stinted themselves to the smallest possible allow ancc. In seven days alter tho appearance nf the first vessel, another was seen only lour miles north. An ensign was hoisted bill sho boro awny liko the former, and was soon lost to their view. Dsspair was now in every countenance. How they lived through Iho succeeding five days it would bu hard lo tell; sumo few endeavor ed to eat the horn buttons oftheir jacket Horrible us this situal iou was, il was made yet worse by the conduct nf tho crew to wards 0110 another. As their sufferings iu creased, they became cross and se!li,h the strong securing a place on the cabin floor and pu-lnng aside the weak to shift for themselves iu the wet and cold. There was a boy, named O'Brien, especially, who seemed lo have no mend on board, and en dured every sort of cruelly und abuse. Most of the men had got sore legs from st'induig 111 the salt water, and were peev ish and apprehensive of being hurl; us snon as O'Brien came near them iu search of a dry berth, ho was kicked away, for he retaliated in curse-'. (Jo the lUth IJjccmucr, tho Iblli day since the wreck, the Uaptain said, they were now a length ot time without stisten ance, that it was beyond human nature to emluro it any longer, and that thu only question for them lo consider was whether ouo or all should die; ins opinion was, 1 lint one should suffer for thu rest, and that lots should be drawn between tho fuur boys as thev could not bo considered so great a loss to their friends, as those who had wives and children dopcnding on them. None objected to this, c.xcopt tho boys, who cried out against the injustice of 9uch a proceeding. O'Brien, in particular, pro tested again-.! it; nnd sonio mutturings wore heard amongst tho men, that led 1110 initor to apprehend they might proceed in a more summary way. Friendless and forlorn as ho was, they were well calculated to terrify tho boy into acquiescence, and ho at length submitted. Mulvillo now prepared some sticks of different lengths for tho lots. A bandage was tied over O'Brien's eyes, nnd he knelt down, resting Ins face on Mulvillo's knees. Thu latter had tho 6ticl;s in his hand, nnd was to hold them up, one by ono demanding whose lot it was. O'Brien was to call out a name, and whatever person he named for tho tho shortest stick, was to die. Mulvillc held up the first stick, and demanded who it was for. 'The answer was, "for little Johnny Shcchan," and the lot was laid aside. The next was held up, and the demand was repeated, "nn my?elf," upon which Mulvillo said, that was the death lot that O'Brien had culled it for himself. 'Tho poor fellow hoard tho an nouncement without uttering n word. Tho men told him ho must pruparu for death, ami thu Captain proposed bleeding linn 111 Thev afierwards laid onen the body and sepa'rated tho limbs; the latter were hunj over tho stern while a portion of tho for mcr was allotted for immediate use. and nl most every ono partook ol it.

His raving continued during the succeeding night, and in 1 tie morning, as his end seemed to bo approaching, the veins of his neck were cut and the blood drawn from him. This was tho second death. On that night Bolnno was nnd and tho boy Burns, on tho following morn urn-; they were obliged to do lied uy ine crew, and tho latter eventually bled to death bv cutting his throat. Behane died unexpectedly or ho would have suffered the same late.

Or where spots of ink or iron would have been remo ved by oxalic acid, the color may be re.-tor. ed by an alkali or a solution of tin. This branch of our subject is loo extensive for our present limits, and those who wish lo pursue the subject wo refer lo works on lyeing and that department o, chemistry which relates to it. ART OF REMOVING STAINS FROM CLOTH. The art requires, first a knowledge of the dmcrcnt producing slams. Se condly ofthuse substances by which stains may be removed. And, thirdly a know edge of tho original coloring matter of the article, of the action ol Ihu substance upon it and upon the stutl, and ot those substan ces which will re-establish the faded color. I. Among the most common stains are those of grease, and oils generally, acids, alkalies, iron rusl, sweet fruits, &c. Some of these, as grease spots and stains of fruit. aro easily known ; while some of the others aro more dilhcult to be distinguished. These difficulties aro, however, ofien 111 a great measure overcome by observing the changes which aro effoctcd in the color of the stuff. Acids, tor instance, aro gen orally thus knuvvn : They redden black brovvu ; and violet dyes and all blue color except Prussian bluo and Indigo. Yellow colors are generally rendered paler bv them, except tho color of anuatto, which becomes orange. Alkalies generally cause red colors to become violet, and blue to become green. Green woollen cloth is changed by them 10 yellow, yellow to brown and annutlo to lively red. Sweat consists principally nf water, with wliinli a small quantity of muriate of soda, and acetic, asul; it thereloro produces nearly the same effects as the acids generally Urease and nil spot? ure removed by Receipt for the cure of Hols in a ILirse. When a horse has bots, it mav often be iiiuwn by his biting his sides; when he lias many, they often throw him into great pain, nnd ha lays down, rolls, and if not cured soon, dies. When it is behoved that a horse lus the bots, by the above symp toms, give a pint of sweetened milk; which the bols are loud of, and thev will let go their hold uu tho hnr-o, and feast on tho milk Immediately give the horse a small quantity of oals or other provender, iu which put two thirds ol a common fig ot tobacco pulverized. If ho refuses the provender thus mixed, stoop the samo quaintly ul lolucco its a pint of boiling or warm water, until the strength is out, as we say, then put in enough cold water so 1h.1t the whole will fill a common junk bot tle, and turn il into the horse. When it reaches the bots it kills them, as all will believe, who have ever spit tobacco juice on a worm, or similar insect. Tho horso in less than twenty hours will void all hisj bots; there is 110 mistake 111 this, though no patent hus been obtained. Tho writer would not have it tried nn an old poor horse in Ihc fall or first 0f winter, for ho would corlain'y recover, to tho damage of his owner.
