FIRE: The store of Mr. Robert Pettit, at Rockville Centre was discovered to be on fire yesterday morning, about 4 o'clock, and was extinguished. It was evidently the work of an incendiary, as a sheaf of straw partly burned was found standing by the part of the building on fire. A few moments more and the building would have been leveled to the ground.

INVENTIONS: An experiment was tried recently by the New Jersey
railroad and transportation company on the meadows west of Bergen hill.
Mail bags were changed while the trains were at a speed of 50 miles per
hour. One bag was placed upon a post, another was taken from it.
If this plan proves practicable, mails may be transported on express trains
for way stations.
A lately invented life preserver was experimented upon, a few days since, at the Conard Docks, Jersey City. A stool is converted into a life-boat three feet long, and one foot wide, in an instant, by touching a spring on either side of the stool. It is capable of supporting one or two persons.

A NEW CURE--A young lady of Philadelphia was cured of palpitation of the heart the other evening, by a young M. D., in the simplest and most natural way imaginable.--He merely held one of her hands in his, put his arm around her waist, and whispered something in her left ear. He called it physical galvanism.
