This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world's books discoverable online.

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of

PLASTIC SLATE ROOFING,

Is made of ground Slate Stone and Goal Tar, over a surface of Woolen Roofing
Felting, which is fast taking the place of all other Roofings, with the best of satisfaction
in every instance where properly applied. It makes one of the lightest, cheapest, non-
expansive, non combustible and undecaying Roofs now in use, costing about one-half as
much as tin, without having the objections to it that tin has, of expansion and contraction ,
causing leaks; it is also free from rust, and needs no paint to preserve it. It costs but
little more than gravel, and is vastly superior and far more desirable, because of its light-
ness, (weighing only one hundred and thirty pounds to the square ot one hundred feet.)
Furthermore, it will not run in the heat of summer, nor crack with the cold winter, nor
choke the conductors or spoil your cistern water, as will the gravel roofing. It is pref-
erable to shingles, because of its cheapness and durability, and also in being perfectly fire,
water and weather proof. After it has been on a few weeks, you cannot burn it any
easier than solid stone. Even the dew may be seen dripping in the morning irom the
eaves or conductors, instead of striking in and gradually decaying your roof. Let the
weather be hot or cold, wet or dry, it has no effect whatever. It is classed by Insurance
men with the best fire proof roofs, in making their rates. As a paint for preserving tin,
iron and shingles, it is unsurpassed, and at the same time making the shingles perfectly
fire-proof.

This Roofing is highly recommended by the Scientific American, New York Farmer* t
Club, and many other first-class organizations.

For Cards, Circulars, Certificates and particulars, also names of responsible parties*
who have tried it; or, for Roofing or material, please call on or address,

The following letter from David
Hall — a minister in the Society of
Friends— was placed in our hands by
a Friend in Plainfield, Ind. The
quaintness of the style will probably
render it interesting to our readers.
It will be noticed that the writer
speaks of the ministry of the Gospel
as a "trade," of the ministers as
"merchants," or "tradesmen," and of
London Yearly Meeting as the "Mer-
chants' Company," etc., etc. — d. c.

4th mo. 24th, 1738.
Esteemed Friend James Wilssn: —

I here send thee one of my little
paper messengers, the convoy of true
love to thyself, children and friends,
also to inform thee that I am well,
and that taking my knapsack, about
five or six weeks ago, I set out from
home towards London, in my way to
which city I exposed my ware about
ten times, and got as much as sup-
ported me to the city. When I got
there I found a confluence of brave
tradesmen, both inland and outland
merchants, and great plenty of curi-
ous Cambric, Fine English Cloth,
Holland Cloth, Irish Cloth, &c, so
that poor I, exposed my poor brown
linen, but twice in the metropolis ; for
what signifies a small candle in the
gunshine ?

There was at the same city one
Samuel Bownas, a wealthy merchant
both m the wholesale and retail way,
a punctual payer of the King's duties,
and a detector of the smuggling trade.
He delivers vast quantities of excel-
lent goods, gives large measures, and
good pennyworth, too, and was but a
blacksmith somewhere about Sed-
burgh, in his younger years, and
then worth five pounds per annum ;
but really I think he has been at the
University since he left the anvil, for
while he is exposing his traffic, he



talks like a philosopher, and returns
as much in a week as some do in
seven years. He is no w very able, and
rides like a parliament man.

There was also there present one
John Wilson, of Kendal, Clerk of the
Merchant's Company, and the whole
body of tradesmen, who also has a
considerable trade himself, but in a
private way, scarce ever opening
shop in public fairs or markets.
Please tell him from me, I think if he
would open shop and not deal so like
a smuggler, he would get gain apace,
and gain I know he likes, but, says the
proverb : The cat likes fish, but likes
not to wet her feet. I observe when
tradesmen and merchants are met in
the royal exchange, to adjust affairs,
and confer about trade, he is of sin-
gular service, being of sincerely good
parts, and the faculty not imparted to
Walpole or Pitt. Methiuks I see in
the man a peculiar talent in cutting
out work for other persons, being one
of the directors of the honorable com-
pany of merchants. I love him much ;
his wife also has been in the country,
and her and her companion's wares
and conversations were such as added
reputation to the business, and they
have left good report behind them.
We hear one of John Wilson's daught-
ers is set up lately. Shall I conclude
father, mother, daughter being all
merchants, the family must needs be
Very rich ? In truth I wish them good
success, We find, dear friend, there
are some stirrings and revivings of
trade among the young people and
elders in London, and in the country
here is a brave appearance of gener-
als. I hope many will be made will-
ing to take up the cross and follow
the Captain of their salvation.

Having visited the inland part of
Hampshire pretty thoroughly,! found
freedom to cross the herring-pool in-
to this Isle, and may, perhaps, either
personally or literally let thee know

farewell, and pray for thy poor but I

LETTER FROM ITALY.

Naples, Italy,
9th month 30th, lfe67.

POMPEII.

First of all, let us visit the Mus-
eum of Naples, where so many of
the curiosities from Pompeii and
Herculaneum are kept, and then we
shall be better prepared for a visit to
those cities themselves.

"We turn aside on entering to look
at the mural paintings ahd frescoes
that have been brought here, and ad-
mire the skill of those old house-
painters in suiting piece to subject,
and in fitting the design to the vari-
ous employments of the owners.
But as this side of the Museum below
is under re-arrangement, we will go
upstairs and enter the cabinet of
gems, a room mostly filled with gold,
silver and precious stones, shaped or
carved into curious adornments for
Pompeian ladies. In one of the rings
we noticed the bone of the lady's
finger, and in another the mask
which Chas. III. had placed in a ring
and wore so long. The "Tazza Far-
nese," a cup in onyx, has a Medusa's
head in front, and within a curious
group, thought by some to refer to
the inundation of the Nile. It is the
largest of its kind. Some remaining
cases are still more interesting. In
the first are dye-stuffs of various
kinds obtained from a color-dealer's
shop in Pompeii, and in the other,
articles of food and household use,
such as dates, walnuts, figs and loaves
of bread. We had seen larger libra-
ries and finer pictures, so we spent
little time with these — stopping, how-
ever, long enough to look at St. Je-
rome taking the thorn from the lion's
foot, and at the man extracting the
mote from his brother's eye. As a
whole the paintings did not please,



and so we passed on to the other col*
lections from Pompeii and Herculan-
eum. In these rooms we spent most
of our time. Here one 6ees the arti-
cles of the e very-day -life of the peo-
ple who lived in the time of the
Caesars.

These rooms contain almost every-
thing that has yet been discovered in
the re-opened cities. They are the
central interest of the Museum, and
give it its speciality. Stoves, frying-
pans, kettles and other kitchen ac-
companiments, together with house-
hold furniture, speak of domestic
life. Armor tells of war, and baths
of luxury ; while weights, measures
and steelyards give evidence of trade ;
necklaces, pins, combs, hair-pins and
pots of rouge, tell of the toilet ; the
style and its case, and tables of wax
remind us of the scholar ; and medi-
cal instruments and pills, of broken
bones and headache. But why enum-
erate ? A mere catalogue would fill
a dozen letters. The old vases are so
numerous and so full of interest, that
