Singular discovery.

--An artist in Paris has made a discovery which will effect a complete revolution in the manufacture of cabinet work. He has found a means of rendering any description of wood so soft that will receive an impression either of the most varied sculpture or the most dedicate chasing. The wood is then hardened to the consistency of metal, while the impressions remain perfect. The artist has already completed some splendid sculpture, such as picture frames, inkstands, chests, and liquor stands.

With the introduction of this new art, it is expectod that articles of household furniture will be considerably reduced in price.
