The third expedition from New York to the Arctic regions is now nearly in readiness to sail on its bsncvolent mis sion. The two vessels purchased for the purpo3e hav? not yet been named, but 1 ave been strengthened and otherwise prepared for Northern service. The largest is known as the bark "Erinco," registering 328 tons, and was purchased for S17.000. Her consort i3 a propellor of 250 tons, which cost $30,000 and will arrive here from Philadelphia in a day or two. The former is now receiving her provisions and stores, and will be com plete this week. Both are expected to sail by the 1st proximo, steering dircct for the coast of Greenland, and continu ing northward to Smith's Sound. ? # ? * # ? We yesterday visited the naval station at Brooklyn, ard were pleased to learn that the Secretary of the Navy and of ficers of Ou yard are disposed to fit out the expedition in the best possible man ner, and take a deep interest in its pro gress and success. The orders are that it shall be amply provided with two years' rations, and which with the ex tras will suffice for a cruise of ful!y three years. The provisions in preparation consist chiefly of "pcmmican," or con centrated meat, besides soups, Borden's patent meat biscuit, lime-juice, (anti scorbutic,) pickles, Ac. The sunplies will includa something like 20.000 pounds of dried uuat? and soups, and 15,000 pounds of preserved vegetables. The provisions for officers ani sailors will b? of the same quality. The ,4pem mican is the same article with which the Kane expedition was provided, and a sample for examination, after being kept for two years in this warm climite, was recently examined and fouud to be as sweet and nutritious as when put up. The quantity of beef required for this ex pedition was 4,000 pounds, rump pieces, which, upon being divested of fatty por tions. were cut into thin steaks, taken to a malt-kiln and thoroughly dried. By th s process, its weight was reduced to 1,300 pounds. It was then chopped fine by the apparatus employed by sausage makers, kneaded up with 1,000 poun Is good lard, with a smaii addition of sugar and currants. Then being hermetically sealed in tin cans, it is in shipping or der. The vessel will^lso take out a large supply of clothing adapted to a northern climate. Among other things, oO" pairs of stockings have been pro vided. In traveling on foet, it is cus tomary to wear three pairs at a time, and cover the whole with canvas boots. We were shown at the shops at. the Navy 'iard, 70 ice anchors, of different sizes, to be used in anchoring the ve*se!s, or warping up through the ianes of ice They arc litile else than angular hooks, to be sunk in holes drilled in the ice, Some tvei^h as much as 70 or 80 pounds, but the majority are of about 15 pounds weight. In addition there are 10 sledges, four of which arc about 11 feet in length, to be drawn by dogs or with ropes. They arc sharp at each end after the pattern adopted by the British Admiralty, and are shod with iron. In excursions over the ice, they will be manned by an officer and six men. The bark, a- fitted for sea, is worthy of examination. Without, the hull is covered with 2i inch planking, and armed With iron from the bows to the main chains. Forward she is completely sheathed, from the bulwarks to the keel. W ithin, timbers, knees and kelsons have been introduced, to effectually protect her from collisions with icebergs, or from lateral pressure. The bows especially, are filled with timbers, and divided oil into a water-tight apartment. The rud der is so arranged that it can be instantly unshipped, and triced up under the stern. Ihe vessel is also furnished with four pumps t so that every possible precau tion seems to have been taken to insure her safety. The officers' quarters are completely lined with cork, to absorb moisture, and the seamen are well pro vided for in a house on deck ; or should they prefer, they have snug quarters below. Ihe birk is a fine new vessel, having made two tripe to Kio, and is a fast sailer. The number of men going out on this expedition, will be forty seven, including four officers to each ves sel. Coutrary to anticipations, not the least difficulty is experienced in procur. ing racu, and of the best quality. Many good seamen are out of employment, from the return of rece&t government vessels and the inactive state of the ship ping business, and the expedition will be supplied with a personnel of rare ex cellence. Only two have been accepted from those who went out on former ex peditions, though several have cff.rcd. As fast as accepted, they are put en board the receiving-ship North Carolina. Only one officer and the physicians re main to be selected, though none have as yet been formally appointed. The list now stands as follows: Lieutenant II. J. Hartstene, formerly commander of the steamship Illinois, tc command the expedition. Lieutenant Charles C. Simms, to oom< mand the tender. Passed Midshipmen?Wataon, Smith, Wm. S. Lovell, Joseph P. Fyffe, and First Assistant Engineer, Harman Newell. One of the surgeons is a younger son of Judge Kane, of Philadelphia, Dr. Johr K. Kane, who joins in the search for his brother. Mr. Lovell was one of the offi cers in the expedition under Lieutcnan' De Haven.

XOffKEY FBIE90S The country seat of a Fannum gentle man was lately advertised for tale. It was called Campafrncttey and as he bad lived there for ten years dispensing great hospitality, the place was well known, and many went to see it. The visitors were surprised to find, in the midst of a beautiful collection of rarw and exotic plants, a very elegant Furo iner-house, which served as the home of a large number of monkeys, of all varie ties. fiach monkey had his e??pecial niche in this little house, and above it was written his name, and the date when be became the inmate of Ckampazvelie. The names were all familiar, such as Edouard, llortcnse, Clotilda?two or three do/en of them at the least. Tho monkeys where included in the sale. One day a visitor asked the proprietor, who chanced to be there, what hai been bis fancy to have this menagerie, anl why nc had ma^e it the ornanent of his garden. 44 Ah," said he,41 these are my family. I lodge them out of gratitude. There are also some friends: relations would not have been sufficient. This great villain who is grinning so, is my Uncle Fran cois. This little black-looking one, who is cracking the prune, is my Cousin Emily. This very droll one, who twists his tail so actively and upon that branch, is my passion. She is called iielpis. Ah ! it makes me sad when I look at these poor creatures. The experience of my life is there. The key to this mystery was at last given. time that a relative or friend of AJonsicur de C failed to keep his word, or, in his estimation, committed any one of the pecadilloes to which friends and relatives so often plead guilty?such as a lie, an equivocation, a betrayal of confidence, or tho like?he bought a monkey, placed it in his mena gerie, and made it the namesake of tho offender. "In ten years," said Monsieur C . ?' 1 have had twenty-nine monkeys. All of my relations are there, except my aunt Ad my grandmothtr. As to my friends, two only arc absent. Nevertheless, I liave prepared their niche for iLfrm ; in a year or two, at the mo*t, I shall have ali my friend3 and relations caged.'' Gen'erocs FiDKLrTT.? It is generally known that not long since was consumed the railroad biidge at Paintsville, Ohio, which as a viaduct across the deep valley at that point, passes the immense travel and traffic of tbe South Shore line of roads. The fire took place in the night. The bridge was at [*oints 80 feet high? at its eastern abutment it was 40 feet high. While the vat,t crowd collected at the depot was discussing and bewailing the calamity, a man, engaged in travel ing the read, named John Casement, hurriedly demanded a lantern. One was found and lighted, and snatched by Case ment. who ran down the bank into thr valley, and disappeared, lie ran nearly a mile to the short curve bey. iho eastern end of the ruined bridge. There he took hi* aland, and emptying his pockets of letters, newspaper scraps, and other paper, he lightwl them and waved them in the air. Casement anew that freight trains were coming from tbe east. Soon their lanterns bUzed on the tr*ek. lie signalled them again with burning paper. The engineers did not respond with their whistles. The man a paper was exha'ised. With ready wit be drew a linen handkerchief from his pocket, and set it a blase and waved it. The engineers saw tbe warning and heeded it just iu tirns te save their heavy train from plunging off the 40 lect abut ment into ruin. Not to speak of the human life saved by this act of generous tHeiity to a corporation, with which he was connected only as a gravel conduc tor, Casement rcscued from- instant de struction over $50,000 worth of proper ty.?Buffalo Dcm+.ral. Shaving at Se.?..?Horace Greeley, the editor of the New York Tribune, in a characteristic letter giving an account of " Life at Sea," thu3 speaks of a tonsorial operation performed upon him : 411 got one extra glimpse of sea life, by reason of the lack of a barber, on the Asia in common with all the Cunarders. Unschooled in the art tonsorial, ( had gone unshaved more than a week, and met the remonstrances of friends with a simple averment that what they urged was impossible. In this I was at length overheard by a seaman on deck, who in terpleaded that if I would fellow him I should be speedily and satisfactorily ren dered beardless. I could hardly back out, so I followed him into the ship's forecastle, took my seat on a rough bench without a back, whereupon a rougher tar, with an instrument which he seems to have mistaken for a razor, performed the operation required, and jtocketcd a quarter therefor without grumbling. 1 did not offer him more, for my face was smarftng at the time; but the sights and smells of that forecastle were richly worth a dollar.1 ToDssteot Boss Bcos.?The Buffalo Republic says: When the rose bug first makes its appearance, sprinkle your bushes profusely with the pollon of the flower of the Alanthus tree, or pour upon the bushes, through a watering pot, a strong decoction of the same. You will presently see hundreds of the bugs falling to the gfound, there to die. The operation may be repeated once or twice a day until they entirely disappear, which generally takes place in less tkan a week. ? 0^/*A wag in London advertised a carriage to perform with only one wheel, and invited the curious in mechanics to 6ee its performance.
