A spoon about the size ot a rather small table spoon, was lately dug up with some other aiticles near the head of a cove at New London, Conn , from a depth of fifteen feet; original beach having been covered to hat depth by successive washings from the urrounding hills. A Ntw London paper ays it is supposed that they were left there >y the crew of a ship of some of the "Northmen" who visited and described the shores of Long Island Sound eight hundred or a housand years ago. The spoon has been ent to the Connecticut Antiquarian Society, and they have pronounced it of Danish manu-acture, a composition of bell- metal and gold. A heart and an arrow head that are on it are very per'ect; there are also three other smaller figures that are scarcely distinguishable.
