Our lorefathere proclaimed "that all men are entitled
to certain inalienable rights' that among these are life,
liberty, aun tne pursult of happines_." in the view of
the underigued, if men have the nrghl to life, tueat right
involves the mean of sast' sing life by Lhb laboc of
their hands, their heads, or both combined No also or
number of men can sastan life without beoai in poea-
seesiun of land, except by the permission of some other
person, who more fortunately does possess a portion 0of
the so. Let as illustrate this assertion by a plain and
simple proposition.
It is well known to most of your bhonorable
body that of the 1700,000 inhabitants of tbis city,
but a very amaUll portion ono the dwellings in which
they reside, but are obliged to procure shelter by rent
jng the premises they o.:Lcupy from the owners thereof,
Spupon such termna as the parties mu i ajly agree upoo. Now
the parties owning thee swellings are not obhlii.
to rent them, if they do not choose to do. but have a
pedect right, legally, IO close their buildings, andl refuse
10 rent them to any person on any terms whatsoever.
0iuppoae Ihat all the pro erLy owners of this city shoulni
adopt such a course on the ensuing drat of May, anI
tarn out of house and home a tenantry of ai hundred
thousand people, none of- whom have a piece of land
which they have a right, bga.t, to claim ad their own-
no place on which to obtain e. means of life-and con-
siequently, practically, no right to life itself The same
result would transpire in the country tom and agrdcul.
Starui districts, rr e the owners f property in tho,,sec.
tions to purane a similar course. In answer to these
propubositions, it may be said that such a late of things
can never occur, ineamuch as the owners of property
would thereby be minflicting an injury upon themselves
to such an extent aa to preclude hie idea of their pur-
ang such a core. tWe grant that Lbhiis true
but it only proves that the L nodles p)rt-on
of the community live only by the suflerance and per
mission of those who monopoulel and possess the soil.
and not as a matter of right. Hence oae conten-t that
when the lands are cenoentrated in tihe hands of the
few, the great masses of the peopleare completely at the
mercy of. and are by necessity compelled to pay them
tribute in the shape of rent-a staie or1 society which
places the tenanty in Lthe position ol Boris, anl the
owners of the sol in that of lords-and hence originated
the term landlords, ihich is now generally applied to
those who relnt tarms ann lots to Lenoanrti. No people
can oaxercise freedom 1n tbmhght and action to any ex.-
tent whose whole time anil energies are required to pro-
cure the necessaries of life. as is now the case in mtus
city asod State wiln the great majority of our citi
seas-one-third of their earnings being required
to pay the landlord for a dwelling to shelter them
from the inclemenocies of the weather-the edect
of which tends to paralyze rather than stimulate
lo actire exertions the protacing classes He
only is truly a free man who is the owuer and pro-
prietor of the soil On which he resides, and cp,. in the
language oftboeanceut prophet, "sli beneath hias own
vine and fig tree, with none to molest or make him
afraid." Wewonld, therefore, prienttoyour-honora-
bis body, for your consideration, the following

The foregoing resolutions were also unanimously
adopted. The Committee on Organization presented
the following report through their chairman, Mr. Ira B..
Iittention.-To secure the whole rights of the indi-
TheOV of C0 1anses dn Effects.--Whoreas, in the early
history of men and nations, certain systems ot govern-
ment and finance, adapted to the wants of the inhabi-
tants, were instituted, which in the further oxisience of
the people were periodically required to be changed, in
conformity with the physical and intellectual progress
of mankind; so we see, in the present centralization of
the land and the currency of the United States in the
hands of a few capitalists, evidence of an Inherent de.-
feet in our land and monetary systems, developed to an
imposing evil, which has already coerced and plundered
the active industry of our country to a degree of un-
paralleled degradation and misery; and which bids fair,
it unchecked, to tyrannize with more than monarohial
power over the future destinies of our nation. We,
therefore, propose the following means for remedying
these great aneO growing evils.
ProporlsJfoRcmedy.-lst. Bylthe enactment of laws
by Congress, prohibiting all further traffic in the public
domain, and distributing the same in limited quantities
[or the use of actual settlers only.
2d. The enactment of laws by the several States, limi-
ting the quantity of lafdl that any person shall here-
after acquire.
To accomplish the adoption of thee fundamental prin-
ciples, we propose the following system of organlaatiou
and concert of action -
Systemt of Organization.-lst. This association shall be
represented by a central committee, primarily located
in New York, having collateral committees, which will
he instituted in each city, town and village, throughout
the United States-these committees being originally
elected by public meetings and subsequently by ballot,
through a majority of the enrolled members of each asso-
2d The central committee in New York shall be the
executive committee of the whole organization, subject
to confirmation or removal every three mouths, by e ma-
jority of the votes of the members of the local collateral
association In New York. or until a majority of the votes
of the whole association shall decide otherwise. The
central committee shall consist of the different assonia-
tions of New York, now instituted, who shall continue
in office until the organization Is complete.
Sd The collateral committees (or associations) shall
make report to the central committees everyO three
months, the number of members, and such other infor-
mation of interest to the organization.
To every member a copy of the rules of the associa-
tion shall be delivered, with a card of membership, for
which the sum of five cents must be paid.
4th. Every local association shall appoint a captain
and lieutenant, whose duty it shall be to appoint ear-
resant iner cr-ry ten embebera. Wheu a general meet-

English language.
Mr. rvi spoke in fa vor of the report. He said that a
large number of persons throughout the country had
expressed themselves strongly in favor of the projected
organization of an association like that proposed in it.
As, however, there would ncussarll? be some difference
in ibthe societies in various icahliLes. here must be a dif-
ferenco also in the orgaulai ,on aso -u to cover the peou-
Ilar gilevasce In those Irlcahti:e-. This report was
merely preliminary, anJ th- plan pzopriaed in it would
bave to unpd-rgo nome m'diilcations before it would be
advisable to adopt it Tflie organization, however,
should bec.mpleted before the next election, so that
those officials, and particularly the Common Council,
who had treated their petitions with contempt or indif-
ference, would be made to feel that the working classes
were not to be trifled with when they demanded that their
interests should he consulted. To effect this desirable ob-
ject the workingmen, without distinction of creed,country
or political opinions, should unite,shoiuld fraternize in one
pandf organization. Policy dictated this course- for as
long as they remained disunited so long would they be
made the tools of party and the sport of politicians. If
they refused to do this they deserved to suffer the con-
sequences. The speaker concluded by exhorting them
to unite, as the only means by which they could gain
Ihbe rights Ior which they had struggled so long. He
hoped that before the lat of March next the association
sould number at least 35,000 members.
At the conclusion of his remarks, which were fre-
quently applauded, the report was adopted.
Mr. BAlm, the President, next addressed the meeting.
He recommended the workingmen to abandon all their
political predilections and prejudices, as the best means
by which their organization could be zencered effective.
They had too long allowed to be imposed
upon by politicians, and it was time now that they
should band together for their own interests. In this
; country particularly, the working classes being in the
majority, should not permit their Interests to be neglect-
*ed, while the moneyed classes enjoyed all the
* benefits and privileges of government. All par-
ues should be regarded alice by them, for they
all need then for their own purposes, and whenthey had
, used they flung them aside. Mr. B. spoke of the extor-
tions of landlords as one of the grievances under which
the workingmen labored, and said that the only way in
whiph they could be redressed was by union among them
as recommended in the report. All the injustice which
they suffered at the hands of the rich was authorized
under the form of law, because their legislators regard-
ed money and capital as superior to human rights.
Mr. CoMscaaromn spoke in favor of land reform and on
the question of the currency. He said that the bankers.
of the country had robbed the people of fifteen hundred
millions, and that corporations were organized under
the sanction and authority of law to continue that sys-
tem of plunder. The instruments of the law he regarded
i as the protectors of fraud and deception. There are
eight thousand lawyers in the State of New york alone,
who make a living upon the public in con-
sequence of the defects which existed in our laws rela-
ting to banks and currency. He regarded the whole
system of banking atpresent In operation as prejualcial
to the best interests of the working classes, ana expressed
the oplnionthat savings banks, which he called shav-
inge banks," were simply established fy the rich for
theIr own benefit. While In Washington he saw onoof
the eandtiaes for the next Presidency-a Know Noth-.
ing candidate too-who was engaged in extensive bank-
ing transactions, and who was actually employed at tbat
time In the establishment of "Faro Banks."

Luniirh otf tie Units'd Siaifs Frialtne Molilne
from c ie BrooklJyit Navy T ard.
An immense concourse of people were collrlei1 yersr-
day morning in the Navy Yard, Brooklyn, to witness the
launch of thb r'nited Stil% trgale S abln. The people
bogan to aPCemiblS about unp o'clock A. U and at half-
past ten o'clock (high water) there were probably from
ten to fifteen thousand persons present. The morning
was cold, but clear and Invigorating, andevery available
spot, where a sight of the launch could be obtained, was
thronged with spectators. A large number of ladies were
present collected principally on the quarter deck of the
receiving ship North Carolina, where a band was execnt
lug some lively airs, to the performers discomfort, no
doubt, on such a cold morning. Daring the lengthened
time they were waiting for the sight, the people dis
played a remarkable patience. Shivering forms might
be seen buttoning their coats and turning up their
collars with a settled determination on their faces to ease
it out. Others, who bad clamberesI up the fiagstaffa to
obtain a better view, held on, though tie wind
was piercing, by the skin of their teeth for a mor-
tal hour, and would not give in. About ton o'clock
the steam tog made her appearance, and this inci-
dent, in the opinion of some, was a signal that the
launch was about to take place But the steamintug
quietly lay to off tho wharf, and the popular fxeitcmint
fell at least thirty degrees. Presently a tremendous
hammering was heard. "Knocking away the props,"
suggested a wiseacre with chattering teeth. "She'll go
now," hinted another, looking perfectly blue. But go
she didn't, though It was unanimously voted that she
ought. And so another half hour elapsed, when the re-
port of a gun from the starboard side of the North Caro-
lina warmed up once more the expectations of the
people. One man, more collected than his neighbors,
and a wag in his way, shouted immediately "She's off"
A rush was made to the edge of the quays-boys dashed
in between the legs of tall men, and scrambled on all
fours to get a sight of the ship. But she didn't go off
for full ten minutes even then, and when that critical
event did take place, there was a general exclamation of
relief-like that of a patient after lil tooth has been
extracted. "There she goes at last." "HoorayI!"
(Cheers from the Sabine, vigorously responded to by the
excited multitude on every side.)
Well, the ship was off at last. It Was no false alarm
now. In the poetical phraseology used on such occa-
sions, she was at length "in her native element," after
having been thirty-one years trying to get there. Itwas
really a successful and highly satisfactory launch.
Bushing down the slide, as though delighted to escape
from the old stocks, she plunged deep into the water,
and rose with a buoyancy that brought another cheer
from the spectators and a grand salute from the North
Carolina. The Sabine had the American flag floating
from her bow, and the vessels in the vicinity were gaily
decorated in her honor. The impetus she received in her
descent from the stocks, Impelled her t aistauce of many
hundred yards into the stream, and the steamtug being
in readiness, she was subsequently towed to the naval
dock, where the now lies.
Some historical notice of the Sabine will not be unin-
teresting at the present time. She was commenced on
the 12th of February, 1823, put nto frame, and about two-
thirds completed, when all work was suspended until
the anticipated difficulty with France-arising out
of claims on that government for injuries done to our
commerce. This was during the second term of Jack-
son's administration. The work was then recom.
minced, but only lasted during three weeks, and
nothing further was done until the 15th of Mlay,
1854, when orders were received from the Navy de-
partment to complete and launch the vessel. Owing
to the length of time she had remained on the stocks,
she was of course found defective in many particulars.
Ste bad, in fact, to be almost entirely remodelled. Her
keel was teiiorE and a De n o substaituted Fw4oty
feat were aided to her length, by cuttiUng off twenty-five,
sLd adding frly.fBve feet Her bow was albo altered and
modernized, and other improvements made under the
direction and superintendence of F. B. Delano, Esq., the
naval constructor. Her frame is altogether of live oak.
The dimensions ofthe Sabine are now as follows:-
Length in all, 206 feet; length of keel, 180 feet; breadth
o I tamrn, 47 feit, depth of hold, 29 feet, and tonnage
2,048, government measure. Her armament will consist
of ten 8-inch shell guns of 63 cwt, and twenty 32-
pounders of 67 cwt., on her main deck, an of two
8-inch eliot pivot guns of 12,000 Ilbs. each, and sixteen
32 pounders of 33 cwt. on her spar dock-making alto-
gether batteries containing forty.eight guns. The crew
of the Sabine, when In commission, including officers,
seamen, landsmen, boys and marines, will number 475
al told. From the improvement in the model and from
the weight of the metal which the department has de-
cided she shall carry, the Sabice will doubtless prove
one of the most efficient vessels of her sire and class.

The Empire City Atfnlir.
On Thursday last the Spsanish Gon4ul aadMr. Carno-
beli called at the Clavirack iuntitule. Mr. Carnobeli
handed me a letter from my father, desiring me to come
to Cuba. I read the letter, and then told him I did not
wish to go home.- The Spanish Consul then said that I
must go to Cuba, and if I did not go immediately I would
be thrown into prison if I ever went there aterwards.
I then told them that I would give ILem no answer until
I saw myuncle, Joseph Elias Hernande?, who resides at
No. 91 President street, Brooklyn, They said that I could
not see my uncle, and I then told them that I would not
go toCuba without first having an interview with him.
The Spanish Consul then said if I could come to New
York with them they would let me see my uncle. I then
agreed to come to New York, and arrived here about ten
o'clock on the samenight. When I got here they refused,
on my asking them, to let me go to my uncle alone or with
them. I then went with Mr. Carnobeli to the boarding
house No. 164 Chambers street, where I slept that night.
The next morning (Friday), when I arose from bed, I
again begged them to let me see my uncle, but I was re-
fused. That afternoon Mr. Carnobell took me on board
the steamship Empire City, for the purpose of taking me
to Cuba. When I got there I met my uncle, who asked
me if I wanted to go to Cuba. I answered in the nega-
tive, and said that Mr. Coinobell and the Consul had
forced me to go. My uncle said if I wanted to go home
he would al'ow me to do so; when I again replied that I
did notwant to go. There were about ten Cubans with
us at the time, and they all were witnesses to the con-
versation. The statement made by Mr. Carnobell that
my uncle had forced me to stay in the United States, is
not true. I was not prompted by him to stay here; it
was solely my own wish to remain. Refusing to go to
Cuba, I left the ship, and went home with my uncle to
Brooklyn, where I am now stopping. My uncle was in-
formed of Mr. Carnobell's actions by a telegraphic des-
patch sent to him by one of my friends at Claverack,
stating that I had been taken away from school against
my will and wish. FRANK E. HERNANDEZ.

Bread for the Poor of the Sixth Ward.
The executive committee for the distribution of bread
at lhe Mission House deem it important, in coming be-
*ore the public for further aid, to make the following
brief statement of their proceedings, and the present
demand for assistance in that locality.
During the month of January they have received in
donationsof cash $2,361 75; have expended $2,185 12;

Fire In Varlitc f Sres-.. Woman Burnt to
Between series BDn eight o'clock last evening a fire
e.a. dlSiowsisl in a frame tenement situated in the rear
of No. 1 e5 Vrle sliet, occupied by several poor fami-
lies The fle was iamt seen in the attic, occupied by
hire. Belden. ,4j* flames spread so rapidly that the in-
mate-. of the house became alarmed, and were running in
all d;rectior.s. endeavoring to save their articles of for
nitort lcinibg the excitement no one thought about
Mrs. Belden. who, lerrible to relate, wasi burnt to death.
The firemen were quickly at work, and eatinguishei bhe
fire before it extended beyond the attic and roof. The
body of the unfortunate woman was then extricated
-from her apartment. She was badly burned about the
legs and arms. The body was conveyed to the
Eighth ward station house. The can e of the fire,
according to the account given by the inmates of
the house, appears to have been the result of carelessness
on the part of Mrs. Belden. Unfortunately the poor
woman frequently became Intoxicated, and on last
evening she was seen to come home very much under
the influence of liquor, and go to her room, and soon
after the fire broke out in her apartment, supposed to
have been caused by her own carelessness. The deceased
was about forty years of age, and a widow. She had a
relation lost in the steamship Arctic, whose property she
became heir to, and in a few days she would have come
into possession of, about $1,000. She had resided at the
above premises for upwards of ten years past. The fol-
lowing are the names of the families who occupied the
other parts of the same house :-Mr. Milan, Mr. Stran-
bury, Mr. Ryan, Mr. McGuire, Mr. Molden, and Mr. Finn.
The premises are owned by Mr. Burke, of No. 33 St.
Mark't place. The damage done to tue building will
probably amount to $150 said to be covered by insu-
rance The poor families had a good many of their things
destroyed by breakage and water.

City Politics.
The tuaslonlss, so called, held a meeting last Friday
evening in the Coal Hole in Tammany Hall, when they
determined that the great mass meeting, whith is to re-
unite the shattered fragments of the democratic party,
shall come off on the 7th of March next, immediately
' alter the adjournment of Congress. The Soet Committee,
which met on last Thursday evening in the same'place,
were considerably excited by a resolution which was in-
troduced condemning the Postmaster for the appoint-
ments he had made, and fortis not turning certain well
known whigs out of office. Some pretty severe language
was used, and at one time there were strong symptoms
of a fight. Although this committee is as yet but a
month old, It is already divided into two factions-one
hailing from the Custom House and tike other from the
Post Office. The latter clique has the support of a num-
her of outsiders, who are opposed to Custom House
dictation under the leadership of Cochrane, and at
every meeting the split becomes more evident.
The Hard General Committee, who met on the same
evening, were also in trouble. The resolutions which we
published In the HR.ALD of Friday were violently op-
posed, because they did net take ground against Know
Nothinglsm. It was also urged, that if a committee
was sent to Albany, as proposed, to infiuenre the hard
members of the Legislatdre'to vote for a can-ilsate of
their own, and enter into no combination with the op.
ponents of Seward, it would have the effect ofinsurivg
the election of that objectionable personage to the
Senate, and thereby materla'ly injuring the future for-
tunes of the nationals. Exception was also taken to
the omision, in the resolutions of the State Central
Committee, of the name of Greens C. Bronsoz, who was
given the cold shoulder, and Daniel S. Dickinson alone
mentioned in a complimentary manner. The resolu-
tions, however, after an exciting debate, passed, aend
the committee, headed by Horace F. Clark, are now in
Albany, canvassing Ihe I ;slature, to prreuvent any cosa-
lition between the lihrii an-.1 soils
The Whig Ioung Men, at their meeting on Friday
night, had a most exciting time, in consequence of a re-
solution being submitted, enclosing the claims of hew-
e.m to ilo t SlsulO.'lhip Vari.,,s eiforle were made to
stave on ncion on the reaolntion, but it Was at length
cartlriea. in lthie following siap-- -

It was determined to publish the proceedings, which
was done against the wishes of many of the members
and alter a close fight as to which papers they should
appear in.
The following letter from one of the secretaries shows
that there is no little discontent among the young whigs
at the action of the committee:-
I regret to scee my name attached to the Seward reso-
lution passed last evening by the Young Men's Whig
General Committee. I am one of the secretaries. I was
absent, and I deny the right to make me appear as the
enCorser of any such resolution.
I should have opposed It, and by no means have sign-
ed it, or allowed my name to be attached to it, if I had
been present. Bespectfully

Complaints against the man Williams, whose arrest
we noticed a few days ago, are beginning to be quite'

under false pretences. The original document was

Some expert and impudent ball thief entered the house
of Mr. I. De Forrest, No. 141 Hudson street, on Friday
night last, and carried off two overcoats, one of which
contained the keys of Mr. De Forrest's store. No trace
of the thief or stolen property was received up to yester-
day morning, when the owner of the property was as-
tonished to find the following note, written iuan i legible
band, left at his residence :-" I return you those KRa,
as they are of no use to me. I am much pleased with

A man named James Dufiy was arrested by Officer

taken before Justice Brennan, at the Jefferson Market

I have just resd the article ,in the HURALD of today,
with reference tobundy's bill, in which he proposes to
shut up the barber shops on Sunday. I am astonished
that aly one connected with a paper that takes such
comprehensive views of matters and things' as the
HaA),' should have attributed this movement to mo-
rilly and piely in i-sr Stlte legislature '
lhe simple fact uisc the barbers themselves desire
such a bill, not fiom any religious scruples, but on an-
count of their own convenience and comfort. It Is a ese-

veine bsrdthip to have nO time to devote to relaxation of
body and mind. Many of them would willingly forego al
the advantages derived directly from Sunday shaving If
they could secure their full share of the trade on sli days
of the week-buit -bile any may keep open shop on that
'lay, such as do to would rreeive mote thau their due
eliate of the whole trade, unless all did it. You are pro-
verbialty a fair man. Let the barbers speak out through
your columns, or at least let them send to yon an an
swer tothe question-Are yon for r ogainit closing all
barber shops on Sunday? You can publish, simply, tha
number on aih side. lThe difficulty is, that unless all
close, those who close up lose what'those who keep open
gain. Ifcrne cau keep open all will be equally beneftteid
by having at least one day for recreation and rest

MiLAx, Jan. 7.,1855.
Fortunately we reached this place just in time to
share in the honors of a young American prima tdonan,
who made her debut on the evening of our arrival, at
La Scala. We learned through the conversation at the
dinner table that all the world was going to the theatre
to witness the first essay of an American candIdateftr
operatic honors, who had adventurously come to Milan
to submit hfer qualities to the highest tribunalin Eu-
rope, without even having once terpted approbation In
inferior spheres. There was something of promise in
the very audacity. Of course we secured seats at an
early hour
The opera was "Linda." On her first appearance the
audience was conciliated by a carmingl person, an
kindly meetings assured her of a fair hesrig. The pre-
posseesson was evidently confirmed by the first act, at
the end of which there were clear indications of exefted
expectations, which, In the progress of the piece, were
abundantly realized. Her success was complete. After
the second ct she was called out on every performance
and at the coise of the scene received all the honors due
to a successful debutante.
Naturally sympathzing in the first.fush of such sue-
cees in "the mideof the old world, we paid our respeota
tothe young lady the next morning, and found her as
worthy of private regard as of public applauSe. She Is the
denghter of Mr. Conrad Hensler, of Boston, and came
to Europe some two or three years sines by the advice
of some of the first citizens of the American Athens,
accompanied by her father, himself a Swiss by birth, to
qualify herself by study under proper masters for the
Opera. Miss H. Is oniy 18, and she preserves In the minst
of the most flatterering attentions of the best society
in Milan, the quiet simplicity and unaffected manners
which are among the most attractIve grass of her sex.
Her voice is a soprano of the richest tone.
La Scala is doubtless the most renowned theatre In
Europe, and, after San Carlos at Nepls, is the largest
in Italy., Ith as aceommodation for over 4,000 persons,
and las the merit of being perfetly 'resonant. notith-
standingIts imtensilty. This advantage Is chiefy owing
to the form of the roof, a cesver eonstrnctlon by a res-
toerogood architecture in Lombardy during the iat
century. *Each loge, or box, has a small room connected
with it, where the occupants receive their guests and
take refreshnnts during the Intervals of the play. The
boxes are generally private property. The practice or

To-day it is just three hundred years since John Ro-
gers, the proto martyr of the Marian pesecution, was
burned at the stake at Smithfield. We hear that some
of the descendants of that famous man resident in the
vicinity of Boston, have made preparation for an obeery-
ance of this anniversary. One of our friends, whose La-
mily is allied to that of the martyr, and whose ancestors
for more than one generation have been honored and
respected in the ranks of the New England clergy has a
genuine portrait of the illustrious man of Smiwhd e
whose sufferings have been the theme of so much nurse-
ry pathos, and the exact number of whose children hat
so long taxed the brains of juvenile readers. This relaio
has been hunted up for use at the gathering of the de-
scendants of those nine or tan children, who form that
melancholy group in the woodcut in the old elitlons of
the New England Primer. The Salem rGzete, in allUd-
ing to this memorable day, has the following para-

From a letter recently received from friend inAthelu,
we learn tbat the Rev. Dr. Hill, for more than twenly-
fve years a missionary from the Protestant Epienopal
Church in this country, has bea eerIously ill, though
he is now In a convalescent sate. The ravages of tho
cholera in Athens have been fearful. In many Iniitauae
whole families bare been taken, and in various parts of
the city one sees numbers of bonseswhose Inmatle have
died, closed by the authorities. Every body that could
leave, went away; all except the missionaries; they stail
valesntly at their post. TUe mission school of Dr. Hill
was opened after the summer vaatinon, with hundreds
of lcholsrs, but was obliged to be clod In a few days,
on account of the frightful spread of the cholera.
To show the. esteem andd high respt.t In which Rev.
Dr. Hill is held by those in anthorsty In Greees, I will
hern say he was chosen by the government as one of the
commiesloners sent to Ihe island of Euboma, to investi-
gate the afSir of the shocking murder of Mr. Leevee and
wite, which happened a few months sinne. All the donu-
mento In relation to this mournful tragedy were traM-
Iated'into English by Dr. Hill, and forwarded by him to
King O0ho msuifests the warmest interest in the Amt-
rican million school, and has several times vlastedit,
always expressing great satiesautlOn at the work there
going on. The laws of Greece lorbid any thing like pto-
slylsing, and therefore the only field there lor foreign
missionaries Is the schools, which thni far have bean

lam gratified to be enoabl-d to inform you that lthei
sulutantial wealth of the State, during the year just
dosed, has been vastly augmented. Mining. agriculture
ia commeree-the great intere-ts of Callfornia-have
allbeen greatly extended in their operations, developing
dore fully than in any previous year, the varied and im
mense advantinages and resource-s of the State.
'T"lronghout the mining region, eaten4log about six
hundred miles in length-from the Four Creeks to the
.Oregon line---and averaging not less than forty.five
miles in width, many highly important aud useful im
provementa have been mad, e specially In the excavation
and construction of canals and ditches ofl great length,
designed to supply with water, at all of the year
locations nown as "dry diggings."
By means of these canal and ditches, water is convey-
ed irom the principal rivers and dialstri buted over vast
districlt.of mining country, enabling tobusaundi of enter
uprising and indautrioas mendilgeotly, and at all seasons
of tle year, to prosecute their labors, and to increase
bnienae'y the amount of gold annually obtained.
These improvements, now so .ndispesabhle to the rapid
and complete development of our vas mineral resourcis,
Ht is beieved, can, and, it Is hope, wall be so managed
in accordance with the local minino' laws by thoie having
control as to render them aslime efficient inadvancing the

been compelid to abandep valuable cla'mi-in fa':t,
wiole districts of country-f-lor the reason tha'. esufficien
'waer could not oe obtaled for mining purposesa. But
dquig the past year much has been done to overcome
this great obstacle, anc now. by means of enals andl
ditches, water-the necessary, In fact indispensable cie
mient in successful mining-is conveyed in abunJdance to
the dpor of the miner, and it is confaliently believed that
in future a large portion of our mining population will
be enabled to pursue their labors profitably to themselves,
and to the increased prosperity of the State, throughout
all esaons of the year. Ihis is a desidera.tum properly
appreciated by those of our citizens who have bwe com.
pniled in former years for want of water to for.ake the
richest sections of the country.
From the increased facilities afforded by Improvements
in machinery, mach advancement has also been made in
obtaining gold embedde I In quartz Large and well
nenstrucled mulls have been erected in various parts of
the State, sad immense quantities of the precious metal
extracted from she numerous vi4us of auriferous quartz
which penetrate the hills of Califoruta

elements used by tea river, player and gulch miner have
greatly diminished the labor heretofore rendered neces
sary ai separating the gold from sand and rocs. Lndesi,
we have every reasom to congratulate ourselves on the
many and varied lmoronvtments In all departments of
muinog operations; facilitating as they do Iheextraction

of the State, and opening an enlarged field to the indu,-

varied quantities, from the surface to the bei-rock,
which is sometimes only reachedat a depth oftwo hun-

By means of these extensive and valuable improve-
ments, water Sufficent for mining purposes will be
gradually distributed over the entire mining region, and
millions of acres not now known certainly to possess
gold, will be found to abound with the glittering ore.
Actual observation, and the experience of the past,
have satisfied me that flity years absence, when most of
those now prominent on the stage of action, shall have
passed away. It will be said that mining operations in
California have but fairly commenced.
Asrtvals mand Departuree ot Passengers by Sea
during 18".
[From the San Francisco Prices Current, Dec. 30.1
During the year now closed, 41,199 males arrived, and
21,989 left-leaving a balance in oar favor of 19,210
males. At the same time, while 7,112 females arrived,
only 1,033 leflt-leaving a balance iL our favor of 6,079.
The statistics of children show total arrivals daring the
year of 1,826, and departures of 486-leaving a balance
in out favor of 1,340. A gratifying feature in these
resells is that while the departure of males is 60 per
cent of the arrivals, that of females is only about 14 per
cent, and that of children only about 21 per cent-tue
general eonc.usiun to be deduced from whicn is the de-
sirable fact of a gradual tendency towards an equiallza.
otin of males and females in our community. It may
be remarked, also, that by lar the greater partof ena
gain of our female population, and toe entire gain of
our population in children, is from the Atlantic States
and Europe--which cannot be said of the gain in our
male population, for two-thirds of which we are indebt-
ed to China. Summing up the above figure we find a
total arrival during 1864 of 60,137 souls, and a total
departure of 23,608--leaving a balance in our favor of
26,629 so u Is.
For about two thirds of tils gain we are Indebted to

But while we have cause for rejoicing In theomny
favorable conclusions to be deduced from the above
given figures. it wo-id be utiel-s to ignoree one fact with
regard to the gain of our male population, which Is not
quite o desirable as we could wish.
We find that the number of Chinamen arrived during
the year was 16,176, andl of Chinawomen 90-3, while
2,3813 Chinamen and 17 Chioawom-n only departed,
leaving an increase in California of 12,815 and

Particulars of the Storm In San Francsisoo.
[From the Alta California, Jan.,8.]
The storm of Sunday night was unuoasutlly severe, re.
embl',ng in its intensity sone of the old-fashiooed
norlbers which Lhe early residents so graphicaUy da
scribe. The gale aroee shortly afte: mi nighl, and be-
tween that time and four o'clock it pruduce.l more de-
struct;on than any of the prevloui others winlcb have
visited this coast. The aggregate of damage is very
material, although individualIosses ais not laIrgs. On
Monday morning the evidences of the storm were scat
tered all about town, in the chape of signs and awnoncs,
and not unfrequently the entire roofing of some dwelling
hbose or sore.
The ronf of the 'Old Kentucky House," a public
house foot of Wasbington street, was swepr Fntirely oilff
an-l landed in the middle of the street, where it zre.
inaied all Jdoy, as complete a barricade as could have
been made. Considerable damage was dons to the roof
of the steam saw mull opposite the "HLsue," snil also
to the reoflug of several buildings foot of Jackson
'street. .
'A portion of the roof of St. Mary's cathedral was
blown away and parties interested estimate the damage
to the building at $1,000 On California street, near
Powell, the house of Mr. Parker (SNicolls, Parker & Co.),
*was much injured. The roof was taken off, the ohim-
,neys blown down, and but one room in the house re-
mained in a condition to afford the family shelter from
* ,the storm. *
Mr. Goddard's large frame building on Clay street, near
Talor, was unroofed; and otherwise injured from the
*severe racking it received. The Inhabitants of three
small cortages adjoining, fearing Mr. Goddard's house
would fall and crush them, took to the streets, and there
remained until the storm abated.
Among other buildings more or less damaged we notice
a ntw houe corner of Jones and Washington streets,
which has lost its roof, the house of Capt Biynes. cor
nhr of Sacramento asd laylor streets, chimnsy blown
over, and the h,,use of Mrs. Cohen, in the seams vicinity.
A large house at the corner of ryler and Jackson street's,
us also considerably damaged.
We noticeil two buhl.ding which had been remove
from their foundations-one was a large Ouiltlng near
"the toll house, and was occupied as a crocery store, the
other was near Rinon Point. A hounein tiley street,
near Jones, was completely d-molihhed. Fortunately,
the occupants were warned, and escapei without injury.
At the MleIon, many or the oaks were uprooted, aud
we learn that one I.Jellng house was raced to the
The Empire Warehouse lost a portion of the roof, but
was repaired in season to prevent any damage to the
A bnck building at N'orLh Bearch tumbled down
during the gale. as well as a wooden cuttage on Vailejo
street, corner of Masou.
In hundreds of instances, windows and doors were
blown in, and houses wooded with the rain, but in no
instanre'have we hear.d of any injury to limb.
The damage ts the shipping was not very great o ing

sea captains, men of experience on tit- croa-t d.eclara
that had as strong e gale blown from the north, or even
from the northeast, no whari In the city cold btve

withstood it.
The bark Ala, at California street wharf, got adrift
shortly after the commencement of the gale, andl came
Ia collision with the ship Herald, carrying away fore.op-
mastand bowsprit, and receiving some other damigi
about the bows.
At Folsom street wharf, the atoreshlpe and other ves.
sells were mush chafed, and the brigs Woleot an I laoe
were considerably damaged. The brig PIqver brote fr icm
her moorings, and drifted up the bay until she brought
up against the Russian ship Kamschatka.
Tbhe ship Superior dragged her anchors and weut up
the bay upwards of two miles. The ship May Flower and
atoresblp Gold Bunter dragged from the fits and
brought up in the channel, without receiving any ns.
trial damage. The sloreship Bartland also got adruit,
and was brought to offRincon Point.
The streets have been somewhat damaged, particular-
ly those recently filled in. The Street Commissioner ae.
tIaises the damage to streets and cisterns at 5L0.000,
and that It will require that sum to place the streets in
the same condition as they were before the storm.
Brutal Treatmientt o1 a Child.
[Fromi th San Franolsco Times, Jan. 9.]
We briefly mentioned yesterday the arrest of a msu
named PhlliUps and his wife for brutal treatment towards
the daughter of the woman. The details of the case as
given before the Recorder are almost enough to disgust
a decent person with their speoles. It appeatm that the
woman's name was formerly Riley, and upon her appll-

cation to one of our acoommodating.Court she scosoeeded
In getting a divorce from her husband, and was left with
the children, whom she has since supported. Se mwar-
ried fellow named PhillIps. The two, who keep a bar-
room and boarding house, on Vallejo street, near Depont,
appear to have been n te habltof abasing the children,
and particularly Julia Riley, a very Interesting, hban--
some and ladylike young girl about 14 years of age- On
Saturday night the ruffian Philllps undertook to compel
her to associate with a drunken man and woman woo
were at the homo. She very properly refused. Phil-
hpe getting enragpd, seized her, an u after brutally
strilking andnausing her, carried her Into the barroom

BULL Fi1GEM IN SAM DIrGO.-From the following notice,
which we find in the San Diego Heraold of the 80th Dec.
we should judge that the ridiculous custom of bull
fighting was being crowded out by more intellectual
amusements; and when that town becomes thoroughly
Americanize,*, such brutal exhibitions will no doubt be
forgotten:-The past three weeks have been devoted, al-
most exclusively, by the citizens of San Diego, to amuse-
meints. Bull fighting was the first on the carpet. For a
whole week, the approaches to the public plaza were
fenced up, and a dozen tame balls, with their horns
sawed off, were chased round the enclosure by white and
black hombrc ou horseback, and occasionally a drunken
soldier or "greasar" on foot. The only damage dons to
"manor beast" was one drunken fellow getting kicked
over in endeavoring to hold a bull by the taitl.
TaE Cocos ISLAND TREASURi HuNT.-We learn that very
encouraging accounts have been xeceivel from the pffi-
cers of the vessel anod others sent out to search for the
treasuze supposed to have been buried by the piratical
crew on Cocos Ialsnd, a long time ago." It is stated
that there Is every reason to believe that the hidden
money will be found. It is, we believe, an historical
fact that pirates did seize a large amount of treasure in
the vicinity of the island; and it is a supposed fact that
they burieO it somewhere clse to where they took it,
Supposing both facts to be facts, we have no doubt that
the money may be had by digging for it; but it may be a
question whether or not the parties concerned mightget,
more money by less digging in any of the hills of Cal-
fornia.-Alia 'taliforuina, Jan. 8.

ment in the San Francisco papers. There is a mystery

Election of a Preacneer In the Miasmtnchusetts
The election of a clergyman to preach the sermon before
the Legislature of 1856, says the Boston Courier of the
2d instant, was attended by a good deal of excitement
and patriotic devotion to men in the House of Repre-
sentativesyesterday. Mr. Smattering had votes from
all sides of the chamber, and it will be seen that his
Holiness Pius IX. has an agent in the House, who had
the audacity to .:ast an opera ballot for the Rt. Roy.

Pierrot and Colu4pbine were, of course, at the
masked ball at the Italian Operam last night, The
ball was even more brilliant than it was last week.
But they admired it less, and did not enjoy it at all.
They dancedibu opee. After listening silently to a
few of the old qnurilles of Kusard, forever famous
in theu annals of choreography, and to his new quad-
riles suggested by pieces now in vogue, such as
"l'Etol dun Nord" and "11 Trovatore," our couple
prowled (olefully about a while, arm in arm), and
then, hastening to the vestry, wrspted themselves
up warmly, and went away. Where? Nottodrink
champagne at the MLaison d'Or, the House ol Gold-
but to drink ptisan at homrq.
Did you notice how Columbine coughed, and that
Pierrot blew his nose so often and so hard as to
blow off ell the pearl powder that had whitened it?
Flaring angrily out of his demure face, it looked like
a red flannel shirt sticklrg out of the snow.

So has almost everybody else in Paris. Since the
mercury has fallen all sorts of degrees, below zero,
scarcely a bedside table in town has lacked, either
at night or at m lining, its pitcher of hot ptisan.
Ptlsan, reader, is the English name, which (like me,
perhaps, 3ou had forgotten,) belongs to a decoction
of barley, licorie, dog tooth, (sometimes,) and
other ingredients, supposed by us to be an exclusive-
ly French panacea, under the name of tisane, for
",,the Ills that flesh is heir to," in general, and the
grippe in particular.
For years past the Parisians have been as accus-
tomed to the visits of Madame La Grippe as they
used to be to the visits of Lord Brougham. Indeed,
if' sunny France," to justify its traditional title,
did not boast of a few weeks of fine weather every
year, they might have become as accustomed to her
s to any other permanent resident here-to the
Princess De Lieven, (before the war with Russia
broke out,) to the Duke of Brunswick, to the Per-
sian Satrap, with his omnipresent head dress; to
the American who used to dine daily at the Rocker
de lancal, and now lifts his hat reverentiolly when-
ever he passes in the rue Montorgueil the side of
that renowned old restaurant-to the woman with a
fl, die and two wooden legs on the Boulevard des
Itallens- to the cholera, or, in fine, any other fix-
ture of this great capital. As it is, Madame La
Grippe contents herself with passing the winter in
Paris; and if yon pass it hare also,"you can scarcely
miesn forming her acquaintance.
Happily, you may foterm more agreeable qcquaint-
ances, if the jealous old hag dies not oonfine ysu to
)our bedroom and her ptlean; for in winter the par-
lor doors of Paris are thrown open, wivting th use
to enter who wish to to perpetuate, or onlytostudy,
the traditions of Franca society-that strange,
buullilant product of civilization.
rThe splendid balls a% the 'anllerlei, at the Hotel
de Vide, at the PNaies R'yal, at Prin ess Matutilldo's,
and at the different ministers', have tended to revive
the passion for gorgeous dlip'ay which distin-
gutished bthe Firs Empire, althinga a more severe

M. Tbler' parlor is not the only one that has
lately been reopened. I need not say that nearly
every one of tuese parlors is more or lees a boudoir,
in almost the original sense of the word. Bolder
means to pout, and of the people whom you meet in
these modern boudoirs the women pout so prettily,
and the men grumble so wittily, that you find their
society more amusing, to say the least, than that
of timeservers, who are content to forget
their ancient predilections in oreer to profit by te
exhitiDg political system. Mere private grumblers
may sometimes do guod public oservis by checking
the tensenoy to universal apat-y which must pre-
vail when a people is losing, voluntarily or involun-
tarily, habits ofattention to its own affitirs. The
grumblers form a useful minority under every im-
perfect form of government. Here in Franoe a
grumbler must be as dextrous as strong. He mast
not only have the luorsge to nerva him to oppost-
tion, but skill to disguise hi4 most decisive attacks.
So Fienco wit has learned to fabricate for lntellec-
tual warfare blades so sharp their edges can hardly
be oloerned-poisoned arrows-in short, a whole
arsenal of weapons as murderous as they are po-
lished and resthered.
In the parloie io which I have alluded, maiy a
fact is Impaled upon a pointed jeqt or epigram,
that mightit otherwise have been lust for the ouriosi-
ty of lutore students of history.
The grumblers continue to talk about the deci-
sion of M. Delaugle, in the case of tie sale of toe
Costitutuiond by Dr. Veron, and in favwr of taia
lucky partner of the Count Le Mocny, whose recent
nomination to the Presidency of the Corps Ltgslatif
would havebeen awkwardly simultaneous with au
unfavorable deoialon. IUr. Hbert, ex-minuls er of
Louis Philippe,in pleading against De Veron, seized
the occasion to cite the authority of a legal work by
M. Delsagle against M. Delaugle himself, and did
not hesitate, woreiver, to quote a signifiout pas-
sage from Dr. Veson'a Memories d'un Bovrgeois de
Paris, in which the doctor moralizes on the facility
'with which the rich and mighty sometimes escape the
punishment that is so inevitable far poor offeuders.
M. Hubert, you remember, was so much soandal-
ized by losing his case, that he threatened to quit
the bar. His wrath on the occasion brought him,
in sphie of his old unpopularity, an immense num-
ber of New Yesr's cards and aisll--from the gruot-
The latter repeat not a few malicious sayings

* has been aggravated by the fatiguing ceremonies of
the season. Pey sald an incident of tue reoeptlun:
of the 1st of January. At the defile of visitors oa
fore t e throne, the Emnieror stood, showlg visible
fatigue and suffering. He spoke to no one, his boly
was motionleas, only his head responded to the salu-
tations of the crowd, by bending slightly and mono-
tcnously. All who surrounded him maintained a
still more immoveable attitude. All were motionless
as ttatuee. Thus prescribes the ceremonial, The.
Empire, say the grumblero, must have offered some-
what the aupet of a group of wax figures. At the
moment when the learned societies were passing,
a witty member of tie Institute whispered to one of
his colletegues," How I long to touch, so as to see if
all that is alive."t
The members of the Institute do not lack oppirtu-
dunities "to see if all that is alive," for, as the "10.
mortals" die from time to time, the vacant pla5st
must be supplte-i, and whenever a new member is
elected, he must be formally presented to the Em-
peror. Now, almost all the members of the Institute
axe grumblers, In the sense in which I have used it,

An enormous block of stone, intended for the sta-
tue of Saint Jacques, which is to be placed on the
power of Saint Jacques la Boucherid, was drawn
along the Rue de RBlvoli yesterday, by a team of
eighteen horses. This stone was dressed out with
flags and branches of laurel, and the quarrjmen had
drawn on it the figure of a crowned eagle,and placed
on it all the tools used in its extraction.
The dfonittur publishes to-day the particulars of
the loan. Instead of five hundred millions-the sum
demanded-the amount subscribed is two milllards
one hundred and seventyfive millions of francs, or
twenty thousand ohe hundred and seventy-five mil'
lions of francs. 177,000 persons have taken part In
this subscription. The amount is thus divided:-
Rente, 3 per cents, 83,000,000.
e-ite, 4U per cents, 18,000,000.
126,000 subscribers are furnishel by the depart-
ments, whose subscriptions amount to 177,000,000.
From Paris, 1,398,000,000 francs is derived from
51,000 subscribers,
In the Paris suboscriptions are included those from
foreign countries, of which 'England furnishes 150
millions, and an equal sum is also supplied from
other European countries, such as Germany, Bel-
glum, Switzerland, &ac.
The subscriptions of 500 francs of rente, and
above that esum, amount to twenty-six millions for
the Three per Cent, and thirteen millions for the
Four and a -half, and thus form a capital of 836 mil-
lions, being 336 millions above the required loan.
The greatest animation prevailed at the Bourse
yesterday, the Treasury having begun to pay back
the deposits paid soy subscribers in excess or te

on the market in consequence of want had been sold
out by the purchasers, and who were now desirous
of reinvesting their money. This, added to the con-
fidence inspired by the astonishing resources of the'
country, as shown by the promptitude in which
euch an immense sum has been subscribed, gave
great buoyancy to the market, and caused a rather
considerable rise in prices.

Every traveller, as well as every officer who passes
through Paris, on his road from the East, more than
confirms the most graphic and often apparently
highly colored accounts of the deplorable seate of
the English army. I [saw an artillery general last
night, who declared, in the presence of those who
would be sure to report his words to the Horse
Guasie, that no language was sufficiently strong to
exaggerate the miserable wretchedness of that once
fine army. In literal rags, covered with filth, tied
up with hay bands, fed ske carrions sleeping in
cold and wet, and unsheltered from the mtdnigt
blast-fGcd help them! he said. Of Lord Raglan
there was but one opinion throughout-his utniter
incapacity. That while the army felt grateful for
the exceeding good sPirit and effectual aid shown
towards them by the French, the moral effect was
depressing in the extreme, and far.seeing men look-
ed ominously on the humiliating comparison that
was suggested by it.

indescribably pleasing. As they rushed forward

such chorus of fun and laughter was never heard;

these were tobe seen with a plate of something savory

awkward grace they thus managed to guzzle into

The Sound Dues.
[Copenhagen (Jan. 12) Correspondence of London News.]
The more frequent the opportunities that I have
of talking to intelligent Danes on the subject of the
Sound dues, the more convinced am I that if the
question were brought forward in a proper manner
by the nations most Interested in the abolition of
the nulsance and proposals of a tangible nature
offered to idemnlfy Denmark for the financial loes
the present liberal government would not be round
unwilling to treat on the subject. It is not so much
the money value of the toll that Is complained of,
as the delay and danger'of acoadeuts In that narrow
channel, where moreover fogs are very prevalent
and the coast low. A memorable case of delay
came under my own observation, which, though I
admit it may be a very extreme case, may be
worth recording. Many years ago, and before the
general introduotion of steam, had occasion to
visit a Baltic port, aind took a passage in & British
brig from ull. On our arrival at Elsinorae wo
were of course obliged to lay to and be overhauled.
Some doubts being expressed by the authorities as
to the coectness of the UBitest, we were ob'tlged


to anchor for the night, in doing which we e0.
changed signals with another vessel belonging to-
the same ehlpowners, which had arrived just-
before us, and was goilrg through the Soun&
'with 1he same fair wind waich had
brought us to Elslnore. The 1ex$ day,
when our ship's papers were cleared, we
found that the wind had chopped round to the s7uth,
and wasee blowing so treash right in our teeth that it
was deemed inimpracticattole to get up tae anchor-
That southerly wind held on without interaiission
for three weeks, and we were still lying at anchor
at Eisinore, when one morning we were surprised'
at seeing ounr consort slashing up with the wind,, and
making the most of it, for she was under douoblte
studding 1alls, She had actually been sp to S8. Pe-
tersburg (or rather Oronstadt),'discharged her car-
go, taken in a flesh one, and here she was more than
half way baca to Eogiand!
The view I took of tMe American question, as conm-
municated to you in my letter of the 5th instant, is
confirmed to my mind by Atatlticas, and I here ven-
ture to repeat tat Mr. President Pierce's threaten-
ed Interference ought to be looked upon with suspi-
oion, for te flag otf the United States is interested
in the navigation of the Baltic only to a most insig-
Difcalnt extent-less than per cent.
The statistical tables ot the Sound lists, for the.
year 1854 not being yet officially published, I will
iake those for the two oreceding ones. Oat of 21,-
P86 ships of all nations that passed the Sound b ilh
ways in 1853, only 96 were American, anl bat 7G in
1852 out of 17,563. Therefore, the aggregate share
of their flag in the Balti trade during those two-
Sears amounts to'0.44 100 of the wnhle. But it must
also be remembered that all sbios passing the Sonma
count double in these statistical tables, fir tney are
counted for one when they go into the Baltic, and
again when they come out, so that the actual num-
ber of American abi',s passing the S;und in 1853
wasbut 48, aid in 1862 only 38.
It being important in the present ea-ly state of
the question which is "looming in the distance," bat
must soon be brought under serious consideration,
that your readers may form an adequate idea of the
relative interests of the maritime nations in general,
and tte preponderating participationof the British
flag in particular, I make no apology for sendingyou
the following tables, with tue official figares:-

Although, as I said before, the tables for 1854
have not yet been published, they have been made
up, and having-been favored with a sight of them, I
am enabled to give you the following particulars:-
The total number of ships that passed the Sound In
1864 was only 16,469, showing a railing of 5,000
vessels as comLpaed with the year birore, and 2,300
less than the average ot the previo3sten years.
Such a result is not to be wondered at, and is the
natural consequence of the war and the blookadeof
the Rossian ports. rhe greatest falling oil Is in the
number of British ships (2,600 or mo e than one-
half), the Russians (1,052), toe Prossiaen (400),and
t.e Danish (300). .he number of American ships
was only 18, though figuring in the list for 36,a8
they cleared at Elsinore on entering the Baltil, arid
again on leaving it. ,
According to the Danish budget for 1833-54,
which Is available I r oar present consideration, as
war was Pot trIought of when It was franed, the re-
venne from thq Sioond. Belt. and Holsttin C.iaaldaes
was estimated at 2,081 000 Daishn nrx doudlara, of
which about a million and a half, or 150,000, are
derived from the Soucd dues alcne.
'Ibis som divided amongst the average annual
numberof ships aounng the last ten pears (18,750,)
would give the tam of S for each ship each way.
But it must not be forgotten that about three qasr-
ters of the Sound dues falls on the cargo, and not
quite ce quarter on the ship, and as byfar the
greater part of the American navigation up the
Baltic belongs to what Is called the carrying trade,
that is to say, carrying cargo for acco at of Ruesian
or English merchants, the whole eightt Or toe
BSound ones tha fellon the Americoanein 1852'wasthe
petty sum of 192,152in 1853, and only 72 in 1854.
With such insignificant interests atatake, for which,
moreover, they have the advantage of a well found
chai n of lighthouses ail through the dangerous parts
of the chabr nel, it cannot seriously be supposed that
they will risk a war with Denmark, or If they do,
tat they must have another and hitherto secret m8-
tive for a hostile demonstration. A clue to thia
policy may perhaps be found in the offerofthe
United States to mediate between Russia and her
opponents, which however is not likely to meet
with any serious consideration on eitilhe side.
But the above tables show us which are the na-
tions really interested in the abolition of the Sound
dues. It appears that England absorbs nearly one-
fourth of the whole Baltic trade, Norway and Swe-
den together another quarter, and Prussia and Hol-
land together a third quarter. If those government
therefore, were to come to an understanding on the
subject amongst themselves, and then make a joint
proposal to Denmeik for the commutation of the
Sound duese, thee is certainly no reason to expect
that such an offer would be rejected. Let us hope
that some influential and patriotic member will he
found willing to bring the subject undero- the notice
of Parliament, and that toe Chambers of Comierce
in our principal Ports and manufacturing cides
would support the demand for a revision, and, even-
tually, the abolition of those most obnoxious Sound
dues, there can be little doubt of, especially if the
question be taken up with spirit by "the fourth es-
tate." ___"

Chevalier WlMkoff and Lord Palmerston.
[From Perth (Scotland) Northern Warder.]
Lord Palmerston has got- himself into a scrape
similar to that in which Lord Clarendon out so sorry
a figure some time ago. He appears to have em-
pleyed in the autumn of 1850 a seedy fallow known
as the Chevalier Wikoffior Nithofi, "to make known
clearly, through the French, and the United States
press, the liberal, and especially the paciflc charac-
ter of the policy of her Majesty's government." If
ber Msjesty's government nave no better use than
this for the Secret Service Money, Is would be an
act of mercy to them to cut off all supplies of that.

tlemen, who perambulate toe world living on their
wits. A year or two ago, he was convicted at
Genoa of a scandalous outrage on a lady, and sen-
tenced to filteen mombs' penalimpisunment. Whelk

prevails, but why shouldd government go heedlessly
and 0o needlesely give fair ground for suoa an iast-

ted, we purpose, with your permissi )n, to sketch
another and a prominent candidate for the sama
dignity,, premising, that whilst his daguerreo;ype
may present essentaiUy different outlines, the filling
:up, after al%, will present no very striking oontrarle-
ties. This, perhaps, Is inseparable from the genus
Vitlqiciman, generally, and whilst the species may .c-
-casionally, and doessasimilate to truth and fair deal'
tg, the ex optionn only proves the truth of the gene-
ralrule or axiom, that all are, more or less, addicted ,
to wily maneovringe, double dealings, trickery
and positive deceit. Sim on Cameron, whome sket6 t
ware now attempting, like his "llustaious prede-
cessor,"has filed a large spacesin the public eye,
and like him Is unquestionably a man of some note
andlesoldertion in the State. He is a man of money.
Wrapped up in the toga of Senatorial dignity, and
compiasens in his dreams of personal couseqaenog
'and renown, he boldly repudiated "the trading fel-
lows," and claimed the honor as the Intelligent meed
of praise to distinguished personal merit. Ift was a
most delightful, and, had 1 been true, would have
constittted a most pleasing remIcnioeic; but ua- '
fortunately for the enrapturing delusion, the term

This is tbhe bill recommended by theJadl ,lary
Committee ofth6 House to be pated, and it will be
seen, covers the whole ground claimed by the people
ol Erie.
But a counter project hia also been submitted. It
was read In place on Saturd y, by Mr.Rise, of
Crawford county, but referred to the Comnittee on'
the Judiciary. The friends of toe bill witted it sent
to the Railroal Cumnmlttee, and an animated debate
eansued, in which every reason was given by esery
debater for preferring eiter committee except the
right reason-that he thought the report, from the
sone of his choice would-be mire agresatbleto.hits

was not fall. I presume toe onmanittee wid report
upon it In a few.days,aud moat likely uajavorably.
It.wil be ee it takes essentially different ground
from the' former bill, and is taoughi sto have been
sent here be the company, or some party in its in-
lernst. I subjolDfull ooDy of It:-
Siippilertel to the Act Incorporating the Erie and North
ot Raflrolad Contpaniy.
See 1. Be It enacted &,.. That the Erie an. Nort'h-
east Railroad, as originally located and contructed, be,

clsared to be in fall compliance with their act of Incor.
portion, passed April 12 1842, and the supplements
thereto, anything in the said act or supplements, or any
acts or omissions of the said company to the contrary
notwithlstandig. Provided that the said railroad com-
pany are hereby anthorired and required to diverge from
their main lind within the city ofr Erie at say point be
tween Freneh and German sir. eta, asd from thence to
extend and construct their road so as to pass nort0 of
their original line and across the depot grounds of said
company and Sassafras street.
fee. 2. That as soon as the Sanbury and Erie Rail-
road Company shall have bona fide commenced their
work within the city of Erie, and prosecutmg the same
on fifty miles of the west end of their road, or the Erie
city Railroad Company shall have commenced their work
in like manner, the said Erie and Northeast Railroad
Company shall, either by themselves or In conjunction
with one or both said roads, construct a branch from
their main line to the harbor of Erie, in all respects cx-
cpt grades, equal to their main line divrgtng from
their said main line east of Parach street, or at or near
such point as theSnnbiry and Erie Railroad shall cross
the said Erie and Nbrtheast Raliroad. And further pro
vided, thai the Cleveland, Painesville and Ashtabula
Railroad Company shall construct a branch from their
main line to the said harbor of Erie, diverging from their

structed by virtue of the act paused May 5, 1854. relating
to the Slnbhry and Erie and Cleveland and Paiaesville
Raihoad companies.
fec. 3. That the Er;e and Northbrast Railroad Com-
pany shell make such change or change, and pay all
the expenses thereof, in the public roal Cillel the Bulla-
In road, In the township of HarborCreek, between Mil.
lend's station and the saw mill, contiguous to the line of
the railroad boult by Lane and others, as the Commis
sioners of Harbor Creek township may indicate and ob-
tale the locallon of, by proceedings unier The provisions
of the general law uf 1830, entitled an act relating to
roads, highways and bridges-all expenses to be paid by
the said railroad company. And provided further, that
all switches, turnouts, depots, and other appurtenances
shall be so constructed as to avoid the making up ci
trains of cars across any of the following named streets
ol the city of Erie, to wit:-Peach, Stale, French, and
Parach stceene.
ci-C 4. That for the purpose heretofore mentioned,
end for any other legitimate purpose, the said company
are hereby authorized to issue any amount, not exreed-
ing three hundred thousand dollars of coupon bonds, in
amounts noct less than one hundred dollars, each bearing
an inlerest of net more than seven per cent. and to dis.
pree of the same at such rates as they may think advisa-
ble, and to execute a mortgage if they think It advisa-
ble, to secure the payment of the ortecipal and interest
thereof, at such time as they may deem It expedient.
Sec. 6. That all acts and parts of acts hereby alter-
ed or supplied~in any wise inconsletent herewith, be, and
the same are hereby, repealed.
The probabillltie are, them will be a very htndsame
fight In the Legislature on this vexed question.
The Senatorial canvass cintinues-Jonnuson and
Camneron still apparently the leading candidates,
the latter losing ground. The camues of this a-e two-
loll, let. The intended re.publlnstlou, tlis week, of
a large edition cf an official Congressional document,
exposing Get Cameron's connection with the die-
bhnuetoent of the Winnebago Indian rned In 1838.
I am told 10 000 copies of tois report are to be print-
ed, and that itwili be generally circulated over the
btste. Tte election, It is !eared, would partially
identify the new party with bis past. transactions,
giving It a load to cary which they "tear might
prove too heavy for its years. Nex t year, there will
be, to present, t Indications suggest, a combination of

"old liners," whig and de-n ito, agil ns the
Americans, and it is not coalaered judicusa to
embarrass the party with the anteadents 0
General Cameron. No one can doubt the. wis-
dom of this reasoning, ana it is having a decisve
effet Upon the General's chances. James Veech,
of Payette county, is on the ground. He Is a tall,
rather good looking man, and occupies a ommand-
ingposition at the bar of the West. e H9 is making
frieds, but has come in late. Still, his present
obscurity may eventuate in his ultimate selection as
a compromise candidate, His bhailing from the West
favors the Idas. He Is from Micontown, the former
residence of Senator Daniel Sturgeon, who was cele-
brated scur Senatorial snorer for twelve years.

In the New York Assembly was resumed yesterday,
and continued throughout he session with unflag.
going Interest. We refer our readers to a report of
te discuidouen nder the proper head. In the
Senate the resolution of Inquiry as to the authority
y which Mr. Thomasn Dunlap acts as Commissiloner
ofa Emigration, wa discussed and laid on the table.
Our Washington correspondent states that Dudley
Mean, our perambalating Secretary of State, has
resigned his office, allowing the President until the
bt of March to select his successor. The recent
change i the foreign policy of the administration I
amigned as dthe reason for Mr. iMansn's resignation.
The United States Senatie was not in sesilon yes.
teldr. I* the House the thirty-aix private bills
noted o in hnCommittee of the Whole the day pre,
vionsa were taken up and passed. in committee, the
bffl extending Colonel Calt's firearm patent seven
year. was taken up. Our readers are well aware of
the share eof bribery and orruption that have
been alleged against ote parties interested In this
assaye, and also that a special committee was ap-
finted at the elast session of Coungres to Investigate
md report upon those charges. This commit.
ee reported In part near the olae of the last
session, and requested and obtained leave to
coBlne their inquiry. inca e then nothing has
banb heard from tanem, and the bill now comes
up in the regular order of business. Mr. Pratt
mdoMned the honorable character of CoL Colt,
and dated that there was not the slightest particle
ifttrath in the charges alleged against him. AU
that Mr. Colt requires i, that Congress will give its
opinion on the bill one way or another. Mr. Letcher,
chairman of the Select Committee, would not say
that Mr. Colt had acted improperly, as at the thuime
be appeared before the Committee or Inquiry he was
dunk. The testimony taken would sbow, he said,
that Mr. Colt had no definite idea of the expend!-i.
turse of his agent. The assertion relative to Mr.
4estA Intoxication was confirmed by Messrs. Eddy,
Bffin, Zollioferi and Eliot, bet uitiher impeached
i honor and integrity. Mr. Edgerton made a long
ip.ech in favor q( the patent, and gave a history of
the loeasses Mr. dolt ba sustained In perfecting his
tinvention; but before concluding hiq remarks the
committee rose and the House adjourned.
fhe political quack doctors of Tnammany Hall,
wbe have recently organized an association on the

tmiattuon meeting on the 7th of next month-
jut at the proper time to catch a few of the stray
ticke of poltital timber that will float hitter ward
hnm Washington upon the breaking up of CM-
press. The whole "strength of the company" will
no doubt be brought out, in order to insure a tuU
heos, fuaion or no fusion.
Tn. sales of cotton on the spot yesterday reached

mont otfcrales. Flour soldi to a moderate extent,

We give elsewhere some additional extracts from
our California files received by the Star of the
West, among which will he found a portion of
Governor Bigler's message, relating to the finances

A mass meeting of workingmen wMas held last
night in Hesterstreet, to hear the report of a corn-
Umittee who bad been sent to Washington to urge on
Congress the propriety of taking meares for the
immediate relief of the unemployed. The commit-
tee made their report through Mr. John Commer-
ford, who detailed at some length the result of his
interviews With the President and several members
of Congress. He was well received, buat nothing
was done. It will he seen that tie resolutions eulo-
gize President Pierce. The outline of a new politi-
cal organization was presented, and a series of lee-
'trMs and other means of influencing the public
determined on.

Progress of Democracy in Europe.
The Africa brings us news of the submission
to the Spanish chambers of the new constitu-
tion. It is strikingly democratic in its charac-
ter : its essential features being liberty of con-
science and of the press; establishment of the
national guard; annual meetings of the Cortes;
abolition of confiscation and capital punish.
ment for political offences; subjection of the
army to the control of the representatives of
the people; and the right of the Cortes in case
of need to appoint a regent for the kingdom.
It is assuredly difficult to conceive a monarchi-
cal constitution more republican in iti charac-
ter than this. The measure of authority which
is left to the monarch is hardly worth mention-
Spain has been long aiming at democracy.
As fr back as the reigns of the two last Car-
loses, the populace of Madrid, Barcelona, Cadiz
and other large cities, was noted for its turbu-
lent and riotous character. On several occa-
sions it forced the court to bendto its will; and
once even threatened the throne Itself. When
the wretched Carlos and still more wretched
Ferdinand threw themselves into Napoleon's
.arms, the "common people" of the Spanish
cities sternly refused to submit to the French
yoke, and gave Joseph Bonaparte and the ge-
nerals plenty of work. During the long wars
which followed, there was scarcely less sympa-
thy between the French troops and the Spanish
populace than between the latter and their
English allies. The British sought to replace
the Bourbons on the throne; the Spaniards
demanded democratic liberty. It was in
the midst 'of this collision of interests
that the democratic constitution of 1812 was
Spromulgated. This charter guaranteed political
and individual liberty; but as at that time, the
great danger to be apprehended seemed to be
the centralizatn of power in the capital-
which had ruined the French republic-the
Spaniards sought, at Cadiz, to guard against
this peril by investing the communal govern-
ments with unusual powers. In seeking to avoid
one mistake they fell into- the opposite one.
Their communal governments were little inde-
pendent powers, who did nothing but quarrel
together and thwart each other.
At Ferdinand's restoration, lhe would have
nothing to say at first to the constitution of
1812, and strove for a long time to govern on
the plan of his ancestors,. Finding this would
not answer, and terrified by the outbreak of in-
surrections, he consented in his false, cowardly,
.treacherous way to accept the democratic char-
ter of Cadiz, and formally promulgated it in
the towns. This did not prevent his doing his
best to nullify its provisions until the French,
under the Duke d'Angouldme, came to his as-
sistance, and be could venture to trample his
oath aMd the charter under foot together.
For fourteen years the Spanish democracy
was silent and powerless. During the last
half of this period, civil war-raged and
served as a safety-vent tor the animal spirits
of the patriots. But in 1837, the liberals
who supported Isabella's claims forced
Queen Christina to resuscitate and confirm
the charter of 1812 at La Granja. This con-
cession to the progressstas led ultimately to
the revolution of 1843, when the liberal con-
stitution was .again altered or revoked, and
Narvaez succeeded Espartero in power. From
1843 up to the present time, democratic theo-
ries hare been contraband in Spain. They are
now revived, it seems, by the Espartero minis-
,try, and are in a fair way of again -becoming
part of the law of the land.
Simultaneously with this progress of de-
mocracy in Spain, a most startling change is
taking place in the tone of public sentiment
in England. The striking freedom of the
British press has already attracted much atten-
tion in this country. Partly in consequence
of the fermentation of animal spirits conse-
quent upon the war, and partly from the con-
spicuous, incapacity of'the present mi-istry,
the press has in fact taken the control of affairs
out of the hands of the government, and is
fdrlving before it Queen, Cabinet, Parliament
and people in headlong confusion. This stu-
pendous power is being used by the London
Times for the interests of the democracy, and
to oppose and aesail the nobles. Already we
have seen the Times expose the pitiable mean-
ness of the rule of the Horse Guards which
forbids generals from noticing in their des-
patches the bravery or good conduct of private
soldiers. Passing from this to other branches
of the military service, it has attacked with
proper virulence the absurdity of the present
system of favor, patronage and purchase
by which commissions in the British army are
obtained, and shown how the democratic plan
on which the French army is managed is the
true and only cause of the great superiority of

Canrobert's force to Lord jaglan's.- These are
only two points: many others might be men-
tioned, which indicate most plainly the power-
ful democratic tendencies of the leading organ
of British opinion.
Nor is the phenomenon wholly confined to
England. In France and Germany similar,
though less decided symptoms of a renaissance
of democracy have been manifested. Since the
war began, the tone of the press beth at Paris
and in Germany has been freer than it ever was
since 1848.
It is clear in fact that all over Europe a
powerfull asubittranean. process is going on, dis-
guised here in the shape of a foreign war, there
in that of civil dissension, but tending every-

ries if not republican institutions. Should

friendship between France, England and the

to the special attention of Lord Palmerston.
He crossed the channel accordingly, had one or
several confidential interviewS with Palmerston
at his country seat of Broadlands, and the re-
sult was, at we understand it, the employment
of our Chevalier by the British Foreign Office,
at five hundred pounds a year, to write for the
newspaper press-English, French and Ameri-
can-in furtherance of the beneficent object of
everlasting friendship between France,yEngland
and the United States.
In ibis philanthropic fleld of duty, Wikoff, we
believe, brought out a series of diplomatic es-
says and arguments in La Presie at Paris, and
in a paper or two at New Orleans and else-

Western governments would soon find their

for promotion. In Franco the army which

the democratic seeds scattered by this
war would take root in Qermany, and

have found itself obliged to take the initiative
in granting democratic institutions to the na-

The Chevalier W ukofS-HU Public Career as
Sbowman, Journalist and Diplomat-The
New York Herald and the London Times.
The official certificates brought forward by
the Chevalier Wikoff, in the "lamentable
comedy" of his adventures with Miss Gamble,
establishing his late diplomatic association with
Lord Palmerston, have proved to be exceed-
ingly perplexing to the incredulous directory
of the London Times. They are evidently dis-
cussing a mystery in discussing Wikoff, or
Nichoff, as they blunderingly Russianize him;
and yet, in tacking him on to the NEw YORi
HERALD as an editorial diplomat of the Czar,
they betray a knowledge of the real character
of the Chevalier, which could hardly have been
derived from conjecture. theymust have seen
their man, or consulted H. U. Addinglon, or
Mr. Bates, or the diplomatic Mrs. Grote, or,
peradventure, the cruel and intractable Miss
Gamble herself, in anticipation of the "Court-
ship and its Consequences."
In order, however, to enlighten our London
cotemporaries respecting the diplomatic office
of Wikoff under my Lord Palmerston, and his
present alleged engagement in New York as an
emissary of Russia, we deem it worth the
candle to give an outline of his whole public
career, from his departure hence beyond the
seas, some twenty odd years ago, with a for-
tune in his pocket, in quest of adventures, down
to the unfortunate issue of his Italian cam-
paigns in pursuit of the hand, or "half the
income," of the incomprehensible and inflexible
Miss Gamble.
SSome twenty odd years ago, then, the Che-
valier Wikoff, of Phadelphla, possessed of a
collegiate education, a fortune, youth, a good
figure, talents, confidence, ambition, and a fixed
resolution to enjoyhimself and make a noise in
the world, went over to Europe. After a time
he returned, bringing with him the embodi-
ment of a prodigious sensation in the person of
Fanny Elesler. Under his managerial protec-
tion she danced all over the United States-
creating a perfectfurore, and coining money
by thousands in every enraptured city. It is
difficult to say, even now, when the softening
influences of time ought to insure an impartial
judgment-it is hard to say whether the glori-
ous legs of Fanny, the danseuse, or the won-
derful voice of Jenny, the nightingale, carried
off the premium in this country, in public en-
thusiasm. We rather think that Wikoff and
Fanny were the more rapturously received,
while, owing to the subsequent discovery of the
California gold mines, just In the nick of time
for the nightingale, we guess that Barnum and
Jenny gathered up much the larger contribu-
tions of solid cash.
This victorious enterprise with "the Elseler"
gives us the first professional vocation of Wi-
koff. It was the profession of a showman, la
Barnum, and had hie been equally successful in
his subsequent characters of journalist, diplo-
mat, and lover, he might now be the envied
master of a winter palace in Paris, a summer
villa on Lake Como, "a shooting box on the
Upper Misalsealpi," and the happy husband of
the lost heress, with all her income, said to he
not less than the interest of one hundred thou-
sand pounds sterling. But in dropping the
showman to become journalist, Wikoff com-
mitted a fatal blunder. His success with "the
Elesler' indicated his proper calling; and he
should have followed it up. as Barnum did his
European mission with Tom Thumb, with other
attractive novelties and dlebrities. Barnum
acted wisely. He had dabbled a little In jour-
nalism himself, but it was not his calling, and
he abandoned it. Wikoff should have done the
same thing. Pity he didn't.
SHe became a journalist. He set up a demo-
cratic paper in New York, but it fell through.
Democratic party papers always do fall
through in New York. He next tried the
higher branches of his party politics in
the Democratic Monthly Review. Bat that,
too, proved a losing investment, and he sold
the concern at a sacrifice. Next, we believe,
he made a dashing experiment in the mercan-
tile line, under the attractive title of the Can-
ton Tea Company; but for the want of a good
agent at Canton, or some other cause, this en-
terprise also proved a failure.
But our elastic and ambitious Chevalier was
not the man "to give it up so." In 1849 the
reaction from the European revolutionary re-
vulsions of 1848, opened up an inviting field
for extra diplomacy at London and Paris, com-
prehending the newly developed important re-
lalions of the Old World with the New. This
was, perhaps, the true field tor the talents, ex-
perience, and sagacity of Wikoff-the field of
supplemental diplomacy. So he reappeared
in Europe; and having previously visited
Louis Napoleon in his prison at Ham, as a sym-
pathizer in his misfortunes, the Chevalier had
secured a friend of the first importance for his
diplomatic debut. He commenced writing on
political affairs, in the French journals, in con-
nection with the political institutions of the
United States and the policy of France, keep-
ing his eye upon Louis Napoleon. He was in-
troduced, at Paris, to the British legation, and
from his flatteringrepresentations to them of the
policy of manufacturing public opinion through

where. Pessib'y he may have over-colored the
importance of this novel element of diplomacy
-possibly, in an innocent way, he may have
exaggerated the weight of bis personal influ-
ence over the public journals of the United
States. Whatever may be the facts, the esca-
pade with Miss Gamble, and its unhappy de-
nwuement, abruptly closed these diplomatic
newspaper functions of Wikoff, and threw him
at length again upon the world, considerably
out of pocket, but with much additional useful
experience in the fickleness of fortune and the
uncertainties of heiresses and international
newspaper diplomacy. &
Successively a showman, a journalist, a di-
plomat, and a lover in pursuit of an heiress, to
a dungeon, Wikoff, like gold refined by fire,
emerges at last in the pleasing role of the laugh-
ing/ philosopher. His "courtship" has also
opened a new mine for fame and fortune. It
sells better than Barnum or Greeley-much bet-
ter. Barnum's book is excessively vulgar-the
worst of his humbugs; Greeley's is flat and
stale; but Wikoff's courtship is piquant, roman-
tic, and rich in the caprices of lovers, and the
mysteries of the secret service fund of the Fo-
reign Office. Another book, however,may soon
be expected from our laughing philosopher, es-
pecially devoted to his diplomatic career and
services under the auspices of Louis Napoleon
and Lord Palmerston.
With the publleation of this book our mysti-
fied London cotemporaries will probably dis-
cover the exact f.ent of Wikoff's alleged edi-
torial relations at this time with the NEw YoRE
HzRLn as a Russian emissary. The Czar, we
are quite sure, will not object to the disclosure,
and we desire it. It is quite likely that the
HERAm was included in the diplomatic pro-
gramme with Lord Palmerston, though we con-
fess that we have had as yet no information
from either Wikoff or Mr. Addington upon the
subject. Enough. We hope that the foregoing
sketch of the public history of the author ot the
"Courtship," in the interval to the publication
of his diplomatic engagements and services un-
der Palmerston and Louis Napoleon, will serve
to quiet the apprehensions of the London Times
concerning the present alleged copartnership
of James Gordon Bennett, the Emperor Nicho-
las and the Chevalier Wikoff in the editorial
management of the NEw YORK HERAU. What

my confidence in hli inner iunte'itv. I thought he was
in fortunate hanei, anl might well exclaim, 'Save
me from my friends." The tsamination was conducted
in the afternoon.
Mri. Tsussroe, (dem.) of R. I.-I was present during
the examination of MKr. Colt. He seemed to be some-
what excited-whether with disease or drink I don't
Mr. LrcEB-I should not have made any reference
to this, but for the allusions of the gentleman from Con-
necticut (Pratt).
Mr. E mncros, (dem.) of Ohio, doubted not that the
members of the House sometimes get a little confused
after the dinner hour, (laughter,! and therefore ought
not to be so particular. The action of the Select Com-
mittee amounted to nothing. It will sink into forgetful-
ness, as have all other investigations. The committee
was notoriously a failure. In 1531, Mr. Colt invented an
operating arm, but, owing to the difficulties in construct-
ing such a weapon as could be usedwith safety, did
not receive a patent until 1886. Mr. Colt and his
friends were incorporated by the Now Jersey Legislature
in that year as a patent arms manufacturing company
with an authorized capital of three hundred thousand
dollars, two hundred and thirty thousand dollars of
which was subscribed. The company went into opera-
tion, but the capital was exhausted by the great difficulty
in manufacturing the arms., After six years the armory
was sold by a decree of the Court, leaving Mr. Colt
heavily in debt. In 1840 the patent was renewed, and
Mr. Colt recommended manufacturing, in a small way,
arms for the government. From evidence presented, he-
has invested all he could command, between three and
four hundred thousand dollars, to perfect his plan and
machinery, so as to produce a perfect arm.which would
not Tbe worth one-fifth the sum for any other use. Imi-
tations of Colt's pistols are made of cast iron and other irm-
perfect material, at a much less cost than the genuine, so
as to deceive the purchaser,and they are dangerouIto use.
Mr. dolt's pistols are all forged cast steel, perfect in all
their parts, and fully reliable. Such arms as he manun,
factures cannot be made except by machinery equally as
perfect and expensive as his. Imitators will not incur
the expense. If the patent shall be extended, he can go.
on perfecting his machinery, and manufacturing an arm.
more reliable and cheaper than any other, defy-
ing competition. If not, he will be driven from the
market, the public imposed on, and he divested
of his entire capital. The price in 1838 for the pistols.
was forty-five dollars. It is now sixteen dollars. The
object of the .patent laws Is to benefit the police by
encouraging men of genius to exercise their time, ener-
gies and talents, andthe profits of an invention should,
be proportionate to the public benefit. He showed the
great extenttgovernment has been benefitted by this in-
vention, saying Mr. Colt devoted twenty-two years to It.
From 1831 to 1849 he has never received a dollar's aid
from government while he and his friends have sustain-
ed a loss of two hundred thousand dollars. By the ex-
tension of his patent, which Is now asked for, he seeks
to reap the reward of his labor.
Mr. Edgerton, without concluding his remarks, yielded
the floor for a motion for the committee to rise, wnicuk
prevailed, when the House adjourned.

War-the hilitia Force of the United States-She Kin-

The Senate of the United States was engaged the whole-
day yesterday-and is still engaged to-day-in the dis-
cussion on the Army Appropriation bill. It seems hard
to bring this debate to a close and to get a vote on the-
question, although but a few days more of the session
remain. Just as it was supposed, yesterday, the Senate-
was ready for the vote Gen. Cass rose ani announced
that due regard to hisL reputation required that he-
should be heard on this bill before casting his vote, and,
accordingly he addresses the Senate to-day; immedi-
ately after which it is expected to take the vote, which,
will result in favor of four additional regiments to the
Early next week, Mr. Gowin will report him Pacific Rail-
road bill, providing for a single road on the SotoLhern or
Texas route; and front the confidence expressed by the
members of the Special Commi;ttee, composed of the
ablest men in the Senate, I am induced to believe that
this bill will pass the Senate, though it may be lost in
the lower House for the want of time.
The French Spoliation bill is still in a critical condition.
-having to pass the Senatorial and executive ordeals. A
powerful move will be made to defeat it in the Senate.
An effort will be made to amend it, first, by providing
that no assignee shall receive the benefit of its provi-
sions; that tailing, the next effort will be to limit as-
signees to the amount actually paid by them. Alter wor-
rying threugn the Senate, should the bill survive the
labor then it has to face the veto prerogative of the-
President. I hear the ,pestion frequently asked, ,"Wil
the President veto the bill" I am inclined to the belief,
from all that I can gather,-that he will not. Gen. Bayly,
who is the confidential personal friend of Gen. Pierce,
has evidently received assmances from him that he will.
not veto the bill, or he (Gen. B.) would never have de-
voted so mush time and labor to securing itsf .sage.
The greatest apprehension is as to its p-obable defeat in
the Senate.
The House of Representatives is still progressing with
the Territorial business. Some sharp sparring occurred
yesterday between CoL Benton, of Misouri, and Mr,
Richardson, of Illinois, on the Subterranean Telegraph
bill, though not resulting, as the fracasdid the day b.-
fore between Mr. Farley and Gen. Lane, in blow. t
was only a war of words, and as amusing as hariuess.
I am pleased to ay that that the difficulty between Mr.
Farley and Gen. Lane has been amicably settled. They-
are both brave, sensible gentleman, having nothing to-
gain by a fight, and losing nothing by an honorable ad-
mission of error.
The secretary of War transmitted to Congress yester-
day his annual report, showing the effective militia force
of the United States, as follows:-
Infantry-Commissioned officers............... 46,022.
Non-commissioned and privates.....1,769,335
Cavalry-Commissioned officers................ 910,
Non-commissioned and privates...... 12,153

In my letter of Tuesday last I noticed the rumor of a&
expected proclamation from the President of the United
States, prohibiting the departure of the Cntral Ameri-
can expedition, under Col. H. L. Kinney. I then ex-
pressed my doubts of its correctness, being unwilling to-
believe that the administration would prove s teacner-
eus to an enterprise it bad fostered and encouraged. In,
this I did the administration but justice; forI coan now
assure you, upon the most reliable authority, that there
is not one word of truth in the rumor; it is wholly and
entirely a fabrication of parties here, who are in toe pay
of the Transit Company. When I say this I speak from.
the record, with the evidence if necessary to back my
assertion. The adm nistration has from thWeincipienoy
of the enterprise, been possessed of all the plans and in-
tentions of the colonists; and opposition was heard froial
but a single member of the Cabinet-Mr. Attorney Gene,
ral Cashing-whose opposition to the expedition spring
from his counter interest in the Transit Company,
This he dare not deny. The evidence is in this
city sowing him largely interested in this company,
andl hence his opposition to the Kinney expedition.
Whenever he shall require the proof of this it
will be forthcoming. Mr. Marcy disclaims all:
knowledge of any intention on the part of the
administration to interrupt or interiere in any
way with the expedition, and as it is reasonable
to suppose that he would have known the fact, if any
such intention existed, at least as early as those who-
have given publicity to the falsehood, I think I amn.
justfied in pronuurcmg the rumor of the anticipated.
proclamation entirely without foundation, and that the
administration fully endorses the expedition. !
A question ot deep interest is now before the United.
States Supreme Court, in the case of Noel's Reps. vs.
the State of Pennsylvania. The point is the distinctlon.
between erycpstfacto laws and laws merely retrosoective.
It was decided in a cave in 5 Peters; but there the.
law was so clearly not e.n post facto, that the court
gave bht little consideration to tue distinction. In the
cafe now before the court, this high judicial tribunal is.
called on for tile first time to define and mark out plain-
ly and distinctly the difference between these two-
descriptions of laws: Messrs. Ewing of Ohio and Hart
of Pennsylvania appear for the appellants, and Messrs.
Hoid and Scott ot Philadelphia for the appellee.
Gen. Sam Houston has just received a ,elegraohic
despatch announcing the serious illness of Mrs.
Houston. Hopes, however, were still entertained of her-
recovery. IK.

TIle effect of the ieeentiy developed change of policy
towards Spain is the subject cf very earnest discussio- \
by gentlemen o1 all parties in Coigress, Ademand Ia to
be made upon that government such as she never has-
c mplied with, and probably never will, until compellel.
by superior jorce. Spanish obstinacy is almost a pro
verb. It is intended to require of her not only material
indemnity for aggresiouns, but a surrender on what may
be considered the point of honor, n smelv, an apology and
reparation fo- alights and Insults to our flag.
As it would be absurd and humiliatine to make a de-

mand of this character, without taking effective mea-
suren for its enforcement, it may be presumed that, ii
rejected, the Presicent will at once employ the military-
and naval force of the United States to vindicate the
rights o1 the country. The means te be employed ae-
obvious. They arc reprisals upon Spanish commerce,
and a blockade of the Island of Cuba. It is, therefore,.
inevitable that a "war message" should be sent to Orn-

Tbe Prohbeltitory liquor Meaaute.-If the
prohlnitory liquor measure reported by the majority of
the special committee of the Legislature, becomes a
law, it appears to us that many valuable medicines coon
gaining a large per centage Of pure liquors, will have to
be removed from their appropriate places of sale, and all
traffic in then reiumsorlied to the town or ward
electer, who alone is allowed to sell anything that, by
any technical twisting, may be called an intoxicating
bevemge There are many articles of a medicinal cba-
racter, poscessmg the-objectionable intoxicading quality,
(if too freely indulged in,) which ought not 'o come
under the ban of the law, and the sale of which pro
perly and appropriately belongs to apothecaries and
druggists generally. If a person is laboring under the
afiotion of chronic diarrhore or any disease of that na-
ture, he or she thus circumstanced does not waoL t) re-
etal the fact to a ward or a town elector, merely to
obtain a little cordial or dysentery mixture; nor does he
wish to gratify the prying curiosty of the said elictor,
by telling him why he wishes to purehMs an elixir medi.
cially adapted to a disease or class of diseases quite
common toocur species; nor yet does a man in apparent
good health, though groaning under those forms of dis-
ease for which the celebrated Aromtlic Schiedam
b sopps are particularly adapted, feel any disposition
taesate full particulars to the privileged elector, (who
would know as much of physiology, anatomy, or material
medical as a pranirg ape,) in order to obtain the me-li
cle bhe requires. It seeom to es the law should be &
ittle more definitely liberal an tnis point. There is no
oMe medidne out of the hands of physiycian-i which is
effecting more good in the cedmmonity than Lhat just
named; and for the convenience of the public, It, an well
Ssmoes others that might be mentioned, should be kept
in the hands of druggisats and medicine dealesrl. The
gmunine Aromati Schiedam Schnapps, prepared by
dolphus Wolf, are an purely amedicis as the extract
of sarspilrdl, and themr sale should not be limited to
any particular agency or person. It would be well for
oar law makers to be more discriminate in preparing an
etnetment of such vast publlo moment. The law is
good; batto beoperative, it must be so framedas to
subserve the public weal-Brookelyn Morning Journal.

by strlkis out "'eghty "and inserting twenty.

possible give my reasons for the proposed amend.
ment. I have, te course of my lit, been a dis-
tiller. It was a business regarded by the laws of
the State as honorable as any otaoer buasiese, and
those carrying on this business were as well- pro-
tected by tne laws of the State In their persons and
property as any other citizens, whether worrying oan
me anutile operations, or engaged In the profesaia
of law or physio. In this business, under the pro.
Jeetion ofthe laws of the State, Individuals have
invested a large amount of property. By the provl-
aiore in this section you are destroying that pro-
perty-under the restriction impose I this sea-
tion, it will be Impoisible to crry on the busi-
ness. (Laughter.) Gentlemen may laugh, but it
is no laughing matter to those who saffer. I
again assert teat you are spoiling the property
of men, as respectable citizens, as honest and aa
honorable men, as any man In this H.use, or in
the State. I would ask if gentlemen act honor-
ably when they thus spoil and destroy the pro-
petty of the citizen? Under the sanction of your
laws, and by a virtual contract with government,
foreigners have been Induced to come Cise asd in
vest i he whole of their property in beweries, yet
30o legislate them poor men; you givetham no pro-
t' action; ycu render their property valueless, and
leave their families destitute. This, sir, I assert, Is
high banded robbery. If you wish to alter your
policy, give compensation to those men who have
Iowv sted their property under the laws and faith or
the Slate for the property you destroy. If you spoil
It,pay them. Under the clause allowing distillsa
tidon for exportation, and to those you give the
privilege of selling, you fix eighty per cent o0 pure
alcohol to be ran. Every man acquainted with the
manufacture knows that they cannot do it. You
render their property worthless, and give them no
compeounoation for it. Justice should, niler all air-
cumstances, be done to all classes of men. Gentle-
men squirm now at the name ofhard older, yet I
recollect the tine when it was all the rage, when
on the fltigs of a party was inscribed "Hard
OlCider." This bill does not give us the privilege of
making our apples into older; affecting
the property in orchards, as well as the pro-
ducts of the farmer. Since the estsblishminut or
breweries, lads adapted for the growth of barley
have been very profitable. This you' destroy as well
as lessen the va'ue of grain used in distillation.
This measure will not only affect toe farmer In the
management of his farm, inquisitorially inter-
feres with the domestic and economical arrangements
of bis family. Kany of oar citizens raise currants
and grapes, from which they make wine for domes-
tic use, and It is usually given freely to their neigh-
bors in case of sickness; but, If this bill pases, they
cannot administer a drop of wine to a silk and de-
bilitated fellow creature without violating the law.
Besides, under a pretended charge of intention of
selling, they might have their houses searched, their
wine declared a nuisance, and be carried off, and
themselves be subject to flie and incarceration in a
common jail. Teis Is the result of your philanthro-
py-the joint product of your moral and religious
principles. This bill is characterized in every sec-
ion by persecution, fine, and imprisonment. it is a
high-handed measure of robbery and oppression.
The amendment did not prevail.
Mr. WHurITMOR-moved to strike out the clause of
section eighteen, which permits the manufacture of
spirtuous liquor' by persons who may have given
bonds pursuant to section thirteen of this act. Mr.
W. said hisa object was to do away with the sale of
intoxicating drinks-this older and wlnebuslness
altogether. His constituents did not wish to be in-
terfe red with. When we take our apples to the mill
and express the juice, it is not affected by the law.
He was a firm Iriend of ra prohibitory law; he wish-
ed to shut the gate on doggeries; he felt like keep-
ing the thing out-shutting it down. He oared not
for the manufacturing, or selling for mechanical pur-
poses; ha bad rather sbnt all down. Tatre were
other provisions he did not like, and he was afraid
these provisions would weaken the bill.
Mr. Trrcn said the proposition of the gentleman
was opposed to the principles of political economy.
We say the article Is necessary for medicInal, manu-
facturing and mechanical purposes, and we give cer-
tain persens the privilege of seeing it f)r those puor-
poses, but if the amendment prevails we must go
out of the State to procure It.
Mr. CHAPEL moved to amend section ISl, by adding
the following:.-
Provided, That any person who shill suffer losse of
his property, or if the same shall be injured by the
operation of this section, be shtlI be entitled to corn-
pB osetion for suchnob loae or injury, such ooompeonsatlon

S -"The Net* York City Post Ofice.
I desireto call your attention to the revenue derived
by the Peost Officee department, from thereat of tha boxes
at our City Post Office.
Prior to the first of January. there were 3,649 boxes,
which, at a rent of $4 each, yielded the sum of $14,196
per annum. In consequence of numerous complaints of
our citizens about The inefficient management at the of-
ice, in consequence of a want of force rto attend to its
duties, we are told that the department uanndt afford
more clerks, nor to increase the scanty pay of those al.
ready engaged, unless an Increased rent Is charged to
tie merchants for the boxes appropriated for their use,
und that, foreoolheas the merchantsare so greatly obliged
by the condesoension of the department, In allowing the
merchants to have bones at all, by which they are so
greatly beneftltd, they must submit to pay for
their boxes at the rate six dollars per annum,
Instead of four, out of which increased reve-
nue to the once they will be enabled to hire
more cldaus to attend to the legitimate business of
tbe once, and properly oompen'ate those already en-
gsced. 'be number ol boxes have been [narease'l to
4.246, which, at six dollars per annum, amounts to the
snug sum of 116,476, being an Increase of el1,284) to
the icenue from this soiree last year. I caouteo that
this i. all wrong, and the only excie ouered by the de.
paitment is, thai for such greatly incressed facilities the
merchants must pay, In order to meet the increased ex-
pense Ihbs argument I. entirely fallciou,, as can be
easily shown. 1
If no boxes were provided whatever, all tbh letters
would require to be assorted alphabetically, which would
require amoot as much time as to place ttepi in the
bose, of the merchants, if not quite as Iong, as the
clerks by practice, can and do, distribute the !etters In
the boxes with great facility.
In such a case no one aould lnow whether he had a
lneir or not until alter en.uiry. and on examination of
perhaps hundred or three hundred letters Many
merchants c'o not eac-ry day receive letters, and the
great majority receive both by the morning and after-
n oon matls, and aome-times only byone,eS that this
creates an army of persons who are expecting letters, and
bwho have none at various times, when they enquire
daily, but whose enquiries consume as much time as is
required to find bhe letters of those who have.
Now, Ml. Editor, 1)eave itto your judgment whether
"rdr-r a system of delivering letters alphabetitally, or by
the aid of boxes, the department is not a gainer pecuni-
arily by the present use of boxes, for I th~nk It will not
be.disputed that at least three times as many clerks
would be required (on the alphabetical system), to at.-
tend to the same amount of business In the same time

as is now done by the use of boxes. If, therefore, we
tow require not more than one-third of the clerks than
would be required on the old fogy system, there Ia a large
gain to the department in the expense of this office;, but
the merchants of New York are called upoa to contri-
bute the sum of $26,476 per annum towards its support.
The department ia under obligation to afford the mer-
chants every facility in the early transmission and dell-
very of letters committed to its care, and as the chief
portion of the revenue is derived from the mercantile
portion of the community, it is the height of Injustice
to saddle them with a tax to pay the expense of proper-
ly conducting the affairs of the department. It is more-
it is contemptible. AN OLD BOX OWNER.

Know Nothingiam and Its Strength--The Opera
-The New Theatre and Other Houses.
In this age of gooa-headitivenesu travelling by
trallreod "express trains" at a rate of twenty miles
per hour, is lot considered a very great achieve I
meant, noridoeesIt lImprove one's temper, if the trip
be a long one.
On Saturday mo, ring, I left Albmany at 8 o'clock
in the Western Railroad "express train," and arrived
In "modern Athenia" at 6 P.M. The distance Is
just 200 miles, and according to "Dabol" I figure
the speed at the rate above mentioned. Nor Is 'this
all-from Albany to Springfield the road isl abomil"
nably uneven and out Of repair-the oars antiquated
and dirty, presenting a sort of "gray-lah" appears
ance; and frpm the last named place to Bos-
ton, our "express" was transformed into a
way train, and the delay occasioned by stop-
ping at every village on the route allowed the
New York express train to pass and beat us into
Boston ore and a half hour. Business men
should avoid this toute--"the farthest way round
Is the quickest way home"-and the only class to
whom it can conscientiously be recommended are
those who have plenty of time and patience and a
ouch of-'dysjepala"-they will receive every atten-
tion and kindness fromthe gentlemanly conductors-
the only creditable feature of the concern-who tru.-
ly realize and sympathize with the passengers' dis-
Upon my arrival in Boston, I found the crooked,
narrow streets, alive with sleighing parties-bells
were jingling, and sleighs of all soits, sizes and
shapes were gilding in every direction. The plea'

For like the snow flakes In the river,

The only political excitement I hear of is the election
of United Statts Senator. Tie contest, I understand,
will probably take place to-day, and the friends of

setts Is what itsl friends claim for It in other States,
viz.: opposition and uncompromising hostility to
political haoks, wie-pullers and demagogues gene-
rally-then It strikes me the queerest way to show
it is in supporting a man Identified with rank abo-
litionism and antl-masonio whiggery of the Seward
stamp. It certainly is not a little strange and in-
consistent that two men, standing upon nearly, If
not the same,ldentilcal platform--oandidates]for the
same honors In adjoining States-yet one is warmly
supported, and the other as strongly opposed, by
this new political organization, that professes to
know no North, no South, no East, no West-no
nothing, except the great confederation, and one
comment American interest. If depriving adopted
citizens of the right of suffrage, and extending it
unaondltionally to the woolly beaded,, Ignorant
negro of the South,are a part of the Know Nothing
creed, then Wilson and Seward are their true repre-
eentttives, and entitled to their ardent support.
On Monday night I visited the new theatre, and
witnessed a representation of Don Giovauni by
the Haoket opera troupe. The building is a cre-
dit to the clty, and compares favorably with
any similar structure in the United States;
the saloons and drawing-rooms are spacious and
exceedingly convenient; the seats are easy and well
arranged, and your ticket of admission secures them
the entire evening; the scenery, the costumes and
stage appointments are unequalled. In a word, the
whole is under the management ot Barry, formerly
of the Old Park. Long before ringing up the cur-
tain, every seat was occupied; the doors were now
closed, and the cash counted a trifle over $4,000.
I will not attempt a criticism of tee opera-good
reason why: I have no musical talent; bat I will
simply sate that this comic opera, with sacred
manic, was well received.
Bostonians have a reputation of never bestowing
applause upon an8 thing or any body at the theatre
-their admiration Is satient, so I am told-bat they
are improrving, and seem unxlous on this ooao-
slon ti make up for lost time, for they rncied
everything and everybody, out or place amd in place,
from Grisi and Mario to the heavy German c-.rns.
Last night Hacket performed Falstaff in "Henry
lW.," by request, to another crowded house. The
tiosets weie all sold before II A.M. The applause
was again bestowed without discretion. Everybody
was aeligbted with the new theatre-the snomery

Railroad Improvements-Communication with New
Oileans-Hotel Accommodation and Good Vea-
ther-The Know Nothings-Election of United
States Sinator-Seward's OChace--Emigration.
The Legislature of this State, at its recent ces-
sion, having, among other bills, passed one provid-
ing for a liberal system of internal improvements
in the State, the several railroad companies are now
bestirring themselves to consummate the several
projects entrusted to their care. ,
The Florida Railroad Company, with a chuter to
build a road from Fernandina, on the Atlantic,
across the peninsula to Cedar Keys, on the Gulf-a
distance of one hundred and forty miles-have al-
ready contracted with Mr. Anson aings, of South
Carolina, to construct their roal. The work will
commence in the month of March, and be prose-
cuted to an early completion. This road can but
prove an important and profitable one-cutting off,
as it wffl, the tedious and perilous sea voyage
around Cape Sable for passengers to and from the
North, the Isthmus, and New Orleans. Hon. D. L.
Yulee, United States Senator elect, is President of
this company, and among its directors are many of
tie best business men in East Florida.
The Atlantic, Florida and Gulf Central Railroad
Company have a charter to construct a line of reil-
way irom this city west through the State to Pensa-
cola bay. A considerable amount of the stock is, I
am Informed, already taken and a board of direc-
tors, mainly residents of this place, been chosen.
Dr. A. S. Baldwin is the President of the company.
Although the contractt for buildIng this road has
not yet been taken, it is thought that the feasibility
of the route, together with its evident paying pros-
Spects, will soon elicit bids which will be acesp'ed,
and the work commenced. Jacksonville is a de-
sirable terminus for a road, situated as it is aon
the noble St. John's river, but twenty fire miles
fiom thi Atlantic, with an enterprising and astire
class of inhabitants; and possessing the elements
get orally requisite for a large and thriving city.
By the way,I must not neglect to mention the fact
that I am at present sojourning at one of the best
public houses I have yet found in the Southern
country, It is called the Buffington House, has an
obliging and attentive proprietor, Col. S. Buffing-
ton, gentlemanly asiatants, and faithful as well as
civil domestics. I* am happy to find myself per-
fctly at home in this popular hotel. It is filled to
overflowing with visitors from various sections of
the Union-the health-seeking invalid as well as
the sfeker of pleasure.
The climate in this locality is mild and delightful
-a'l tlat could be found in Italy or the South of
France-hence the occasion, of so large a number
of consumptive invalids resorting hither to escape
the cold and harsh winter weather Intoldent to a
northern latitude. '
Since my arrival here I hear much of a mysterious
society called Know Nothings. No one seems to
know whether or not such a fraternity exists in this
city, though "circumstantial evidence" would na-
turally incline me to the belief that such is the case,
This remarkable order is said to be increasing In
numbers rapidly throughout the State.
Much interest seems to be manifested hereabouts
with regard to the electionofan U. S. Senatorin
your State. Should Governor Seward be defeated,
as is ardently desired by the devotees of "Ameri-
can" principles, it will tend greatly to Know No-
thingize almost the entire South. A fear on the
part of many, and the ling of it opponents, that,
ti new order is only abolitionism sheep's cloth-
ing, wil be set aside and Its nationality firmly ea.
tablihed, if Seward should b defeated I New York
add Gen. Wilson in Massachuretts. God grant that
they may.
I observe that the tide of emigration into Florida
from South Carolina and other neighboring States
is rapidly inreasoiny. The steamers Carolina and
Florida, from Charleston, come laden weekly with
living freights of a substantial character, which
but strengthen me in the belief that Florida ha
before her a bright and prosperous career.'


S: SATuRAY, Feb. 3-6 P.M.
The stock market was quite buoyant this morning.
All the leading fancies were in active demand, and
an advance was realized, with one exception,
throughout the entire list. At the first board In-
diana 5's went up 1 per cent; Virginia 6's, J; Mls-
souri 6's, J; Erie Bonds, 1875, 4; Canton Company,
J; Cumberland, 4; Cleveland and Toledo, l; Erile,
J; Harlem, J; Beading Railroad, J; Hudson Ril-
toad, Nicaragua Transit fell off J per cent. Stale'
stock .and railroad bonds were freely offered, and
found purchasers at better prices. Cumberland Coal
was the most active fancy on the list, and closed at
an advance on the opening price. The purchase
buyer's option thirty and sixty days, continue very
heavy, and as they are made by parties who have
the abilityto carry every share as it comes in, the'
probability is that sellers will find a scarcity of
stock when they want it for delivery. Erie Railroad
is sustained upon the effect of the recent successfnl
financial operations of the company. The fact that
the income bonds were paid as presented, and that
the interest due on the e1st inst. was promptly paid,
bhas been sufficient to enable the bulls te keep up
prices and make a good show of firmness. With
perhaps two or three exceptions, sellers have much
the strongest position; and time, which is the great
regulator of the fancies, and the entire chapter of
accidents, aid the bears wonderfully in their

After the adjournment of the board, the follow-

by A. H. Nicolay:-

At the second board all the fancies were firm at
an advance in prices. Erie bonds, 1875, went up
4 ncr cent; Cumberland, h; Nicaragua Transit, 4;
Canton Co., 4; Erie Railroad, 1; Reading Railroad,
4; New York Central Railroad, 4. Erie closed at
474, buyer's option, thirty days.
We understand that the recent purchasers of the
Paker Vein steamships have bad offers made to
them, by some foreign houses, for several of their
vessels. Mr. Crom wiell is now in Baltimore, and it is
to be hoped that before he leaves the merchants of
that city will have induced him to continue the
line unimpaired to that port. Their interest and
that of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company
must be closely identified with their steamshtps.
If this line is abandoned it will be the last the citi-
zens of Baltimore will have built upon New York

The circular of Mr, Isaac 0. Davis gives the fol-
lowing review of the Cincinnati Mining and Stock
imarliket, for the week ending Wednesday evening,
January 81st, 1855 :
Money matters present no new features The feeling
i gradually working better, and as confidence increases,
capital seems more plenty; showing that it is not the
scarcity of money that produces the stringency which
has been felt for some months past, so much as Ibhe sur-
plus of funds being directed In a channel foreign to the
immediate wants of the business community, the ab-
sence of confidence, and the distrust between man and
There is no doubt but that there are large sums of
money in and about the city lying idle, because the
parties holding are too timid to invest.'
Our banking institutions are paying more attention to
buying and selling uncurrent money than to their le-
gitimate business and are using their surplus funds in
that way, instead of extending the discounting of busi-
ness paper.
Bates for money bold up extremely -ell.
We quote Eastern exchange at S premium buying,
and 1 premium selling rates, not very firm.
Sight checks on New Orleauns range from 3 to 1 per
cent premium. 4 '
From New York, the news is very favorable. Money
is abundant, with a great falling off in the demand; and
rates are not as high as heretofore. RBalroad ItockL are
somewhat unsettled, yet the leading .nev bae hnot dn-.
dlined much.

The Boston Tdelegi aph of the 21 inst. says:-
The stock market continues inactive, at a slight re-
duction from yesterday's price', with more soallers than
buyers in some of the sound stocks, but thbe fancies
were generally in better demand at improving rates.
Vermont Central sold at 8%, and-there is evidently very
few shares floating in the market at the present rates.
4gdensbhurgis very Arm at 6% bid, and only a few shares
offered at 6%. Vermont and Massachusetts steady at
16%. Fltchburg declined %; Eastern, %, and both
cloeed dull. Providence was in good demandat 69% bid,
70 asked, without sales. Michigan Central improved to
78%, and was in good demand. Vermont and Canada is
dullat 77 asked, the extremeadvance within a few weeks
not being sustained; Western steady, at 90 bid, 969
asked. Railroad bonds were in better demand this
morning, especially those of the Ogdensburg and Rut-
land. Ogdensburg let mortgage could not be obtained
at 59, and 2d mortgage sold at 30; Rutland 1st mortgage
were firm at 64 bid, none for sale; 2d mortgage 37 bid,
and 3d do. 19 bid. for several small lots. Tor Concord
and Montreal mortgage 7's 88 bid, 90 lasted; Michigan
Central convertibles of 1860 were offered at 79 and not
taken; Portland 6's are scarce, at 100% bid for $1,000
pieces, and 101 for $500; Albany City 6's par bid, and
the same guaranteed by the Western Railroad 104 bid.
Thereis noCityofBoston stock in the market just now,
and-the 6 pert cents which aoid aL Hi4.ome weeksMince
would now bring par. Copper stocks were in less de-
mand generally, and Toltec declined to 5%, in conse-
quenee of an assessment of $2 per share, payable March
o, which Ul make the whole amount paid, $11 on 20,000
sLares, equal to S2i0,000. Copper Falls is heavy at 39
aekl-d, 37 bid for small lots. Pitlsbunrg Cbhff) Copper
Company is in request at 12b bid. and no shares offered.
lnene-ota is held at 140, incio ilug the dividend of pro-
bably i$20 per share, to be declare a seeoo as thei pro-
ceeJs are reallid from copper sold. This company has
shippe.i a portion of its copper to England, where they
expected to realize a btrier price than in thismarket. The
last sdvices from the mornug reginat Lake Superior are
encoursiing, and Ibe resources of Ibhat country vsl yet

Abbott's Napoleon Bonaparte is fitly brought toe a
elos by that grand national apotheosiss, which was
so solemnly but tardily oonummamunted in the re.
metval of the rmpensr's remains from the rock-
bond Itle in which he dragged out such ba weary
captivity to 'he merean congenial reeting place deaig
lated by his will. "It is my wish," he wrote, "thet
myahes ay mrepose on the bank of theSeine. In
the midst of the French peoplewhom I loved so well."
Without that affetoUng tribute of justice to the
memory of the greatest man of his age-or, as Mr.
Abbott teems stothink, of any other-the story of his
life would be without ita moral. It served at Once
to rehabilitate bis character, which had been so in-
dustriously clouded by calumny and miarepreseita
tica, and to demonstrate to the world that his fame
was as dear as ever to the national heart. The con-
eoludilsg paragraph of Mr. Abbott's work, although
perhaps somewhat exaggerated by bis enthuilastio
admilution of his hero, has neverthe'ses a good deal
of historic truth in it: -
Napoleon, in death, ha8 became the.victor over
all ais foes. Everi generous heart now does homage
to his lofty oharactr. His last wishes are aroom-
ultsed, a"d his asnes repose in tie bs3mof his
belotvea -'rleno, amaudst te imperishable onau-
meats of his wisdom, his goodnebse, and is glory.
Pranhe has reared lor him a mausoleam whica is a

hisounatrymen as monaroh was never eathroaned
before Through all coming agea travellers from all

The artlee an "Italian Life and Morals" draws a

object of bhe writer is to chow the demoralizing and

There can be no daubi that of all ecclesiastical sys-

which the writer points to as Illustrating his argo

An Asnti-Slavery Lecture In Boston.
[From the Boston Telegraph, Feb. 8.]
Thetenth of the series of Anti-Slavery lectures
at Tremont Temple was given last evening by ogn.
AnsonBurlngame. The ball was well killed. Gov.
Gaudner, Lienlt. Governor Brown, Hon. Robart Ran.
toul, Hon. Henry Wllson, and other distinguisned
gentlemen were on toe platform.
Before introducing Mr. Burlingame, Dr. Howe
stated that a letter had been received from Hot. N.
P. Banks, in which he announced his insbllity to
deliver any lectutnieI the anti-slavery course. on
account of the necessity for his presence at Washing.
ton during the oomiag week. In his place Fred-
erick Douglass has been engaged for next week.
Mr. Burlingamne was received with hearty ap-
plause. He commenced by saying that nla speaking
sor freedom Ise should not be hole nt the selection
of terms by which to characterize slavery. Slavery
had betrayed us, and the time had come for an out-
raged people to express their sentiments in lan-
guage not ti be misunderstood. Mr. B. ascribed
the origin of slavery ta Pope Martin V, whon issued
a: bll eanctionindg African slavery. It was also
sanctioned by several of hid saaoeeisura. it was
brought to this country under the cr0os, and
in the garb of humanity, but It near was
sanctioned here by poibive law. He thea
asked wLat is slavery? IQ the lnguaie
of Wesley he would answer, "' Tan sum of all vd-
lanies." The finesse of this description wae then
shown by a reference to facts. -Our fathers hated
it, and hoped It would soon die away. But Colten
gave it a pe< uniary power, ano the lave lepresen-
tallon a political power, which has eintriled the
whole country, and prevented Ilie advanement.
Bat for its infla-nsce, this nation of tenty.flve
millions wunuld have been forty miilots. The
I icapeilty of the North was contrasted with the
nov rt.y of the Sunb. the idea of locoe bting used
by the South to extend slavery was ridiculed. Tae
pcwer of the South Is a political one, and with that
ate hassml :en cur commerce, our manufac ures,
and every interest o freedom. The very auLlion-.
tion butaes worn by the doauth Carollnians in 1832
were made in Comrectiout, and their cannon came
from Woonsooket, and were cast oil' guns at that.
He alluded to the mobbing of Judge BHtar in Cariea-
ton, and toe neglec; of me government to prj ;ect him
ar d the cause he zeprcented, whIle to enforce anu
unit us law in this city, a cannon manned by alias
was planted in Court square, while oar owa brokers
were called on. by illegal orders to be a body guard
to them. Some, noe said, censured the sa Idlers inu
ihat cocaslon, but the cesoeures sec old rather fall on
those ho issued the illegal orders. On the bhiet
magistrate they nad already fallen like a thunder-
bolt. In this counoe tin Dr. Adams was spoken of
as being disloyal to every Northern senutim'n'. The
nleals by which slavery has secured the control of
the gaearal government were then spoken of. The
men of the boutLb axe men of one idea. They mike
pilitliia tneir tudy, while at North the reveres me
true. As a lemedy for all thIbis, we most study
politics. He could not agree with Wendell Puilips
in his plan of d0-EolvIng the Union, nor with Riluh
Waldo Emerson in his prop:mation to purchase tae
slaves, as a remedy for slavery. If asked to stats
specifically &hat be would do, he would aoasrer-
l1st, zeLeal the Nebraska bill; 2d, repeal the taiitiva
slave law; 3d, abolih slavery in the district of
Columbia; 4, abolish the inter-State slave trade;
nuXt he would decoare that slaverv should aot spread
to one inch ofzne territory of' thie Unioo; he wutd
tien put the government actually and perpetually on
the side or irefdom,-bhy which he meant tat a
bright eyed boy in Miaachusetts should have asgood
a chance for promotion in tne navy as a boy o olo of
th flbt families in Virginia. He would nasve our
foreign coasnul take sido with the noble Kossath
end against the papal butcher Bedini. He would
have judges who believe in a bigger law, and in
anti slavery constitution, an anti-slavery Bible and
an anti-slavery Godl Having thus denationallzed
slavery, he would Lot menasCe it in te StBat,s where
it exist, but would say to tLe States, it is your local
intmlitution; hug it to lour bosoams until it destroys
you. Bot he would say you must let our freedom
alone. (Applause.) 1. you but touch the hem of
the garment of freedom we will trample you to the
earth. (Loud applause.) Talns is the oniy position
or repose, and It must come to this. H-i j&a en.
cour.ged by the recent elections in the North, and
he dtfcnded the "new movement," which he said
was born of Puritan blood, ani was against despit-
Iem of all kinds. This LOew tar:y should be judged,
like others, by Its fruits. It hadelenedachampion
ct freedom to the United States Senate for four
3eats, to fill the place of a man who was alse to
freedom and not true to slavery. For himseff he
could say that o long s life dwelt In his bosom, so
long would he fight for liberty and against slavery.
In conclusion, he expressed the hope that soan tie
time might come when the sun should not rise 0n a
maser nor set on a slave.
After Mr. Burlingame had taken his seat there
were lond' and continued cils for Wusos," i%
answer to which HOD. HENRY WILSON spoke as fol-
lows :- i
Mr. Chairman and Ladles and Gentlemen-This

There were here loud cries of" Gardner," Gird-
ner;" upon which ais Excellency GuveraorGABnisa
btepped forward amidst loud cheers, and said:
Mr. President, Ladies and Geutlemen-Raaslly this
is not within my sphere as ExecutIve of Masscha-
suits. in looktegover my duties I nave failed to dis-
cover the line uhJoh required that I should stand up

would have prevented my occupying a .set on this
platform. You will also please attribute to my
modesty my declsinig to say anything tn-night.
Thete were then l-nd calls for Swift,"' but the
meeting was pronounced adjourned, and the anui-
tnee retired.

The resolution of Mr. Petty was announced as the spe-

Mr. IcS&ERSON aining the floor at the adjournment

the foreign vote he knew it had become poten'. In polltiop
-that it had been, :n fact the balan.:e o0 power. But
he was satibfled to which party it had attached itself.
The specious name of democracy had attracted it. Muoh
hat been said about oaths. In his opinion, the moment
the constitutional oath of members was subscribed to
here all other oaths were banished. Thenre was a talis-
manic power in the constitutional cath which cast off
all other shackles, and he stood here to honor the man
who respected his official oath. so highly as to thro*
aside all partizan oaths Mr. R. said he once leaned to-
ward silver grayisanm, o called, but when he came to
see the position that section was taking with regard
to the great question of slavery, he abandoned it.
and took hila place with Connecticut, Massashunsetts, and
the whole North. lie believed that Wnm. H Seward was
the only true man to whom the State of New York could
look with full conftdencoeflr a trae representation of Its
sentiments in the national councils. Ho did not desire
the return of Mr. Seward because lbe was a whig, but be-
causeliehid been tried and founi Lrtue to the cause of
freedom. This was the reason heI was willing to vote for
him. If Mr, Soward occupied a contrary position on this
question, and a democrat was presented here occupying
the ground Mr. Seward occupies, he (Mr. R.) would vote
for him wLithouI| hesilauon, so great and so moimeatous
did he consider this question of freedom, and the nesces-
slity for a true representative. Mr .R. then. in relforence
to the humanity of Mr Seward, cited his interest In the
case of the colored man Win. Freeman, and tae Virginia
case. The conduct of Mr. S. in these cases stood out
boldly, and proclaimed loudly his great humanity. Mr. R.
aso denied, so far as he was himself concerned, that
there was any bargain and sale with regard to the two
questions of the Senatorship and the Maine law; and
he did not believe that there was any arrangement
of the kind between any other members. If there
was, the members engaged in it should be expelled from
the House. It was not only perjury, but it was treason.
It had been stated, too, that iuiSnuseas-hadbeen oirgught

they would habr ben hurled ta.:k WItLi corn. But there
hbd been influences bhnught ho beir up..a meosiberi to

celred instructions to vota so, bt lie preferred to with-
draw himself ficm the organization which instructed
Mr. WTGsTr-WrWu you ut r"Ia.l oat-esxpelled
Mr l0oKimsnii- ITitbdtew. (Hisses among members
and in the lobb es.)
The CAItR-I trudt that no suchi dieminqlrations will
be indulged In by members of the House. It is unusual
to treat members addressing the House in such a man-
ner; and If by persons in the lobbies, the Chair would
deem it his duty to order them to be cleared.
Mr.FrBIOEzsON proceeded, saying that hejoined the or-
gan zatlon without knowing it* principles, and as soon
as he learned them, finding them contrary to his own,
he withdrew.
Mr L.]oorose to a question of privilege, and read
some -ettere from American aisciattons, directing
"BrotherC. 0. Leigh" to vote against Win. H. Seward
for U. S. senator
Mr. BiOADns asked if the signatures were attested.
Mr. LiHeR said they were attested, referring to the
seals they containedi, which seals were a disgrare to the
names of "Haicook," the "American rlag," e.; whlucb
names they bore.
Mr. PETr rose to a point of order. This was no queS-
tion of privilege. This Legislature instructed its repro-
sontatifve, and so do the constituents of members
Mr. 1-oan procededd, claiming thtt he was el here to
isprement men meeting in secret ctnnularn, at mi-night,
lo dictate to members of thbis House. Be the ladto-
pendent representative of 60,000 freemen here, and not
these secret men, whom he would not call Amoricans,
but rather traitore. Mr. L. admitted beh'had done dis-
honorable act In jalning this order, and the only way ho
knew of getting rid of the dishonor, was by declaring ab-
solution from it. Mr. L proposed to read his reply to
the instructions he bad received.
Mr. RKOADn8 objected.. '
Mr. BOyrTON moved that consent be given by the
House. '
Mr. MAcasE hoped Mr. would be allowed to readhis
reply, for, said Mr. the work goes bravely on.
the motion of Mr. Boyntuon wa carr.ed, and Mr. 1.
read his-reply, which stated that he had mistaken their
principles, and therefore would withdraw from the
order. .
Mr. PaFrY inquired of the gentleman why he had not
withdrawn before election, as other members had.
U. GATm followed, saying that this debate had taken
a wide range, and then proceeded to discuss the manner
of administering the naturallatlon laws, lin which he
saw great abuses, and much which needed reform. He
had not been carried away with the prevadiing Amern.
canismt or Know Nothlngism. Be branded, as untrue,
the assertions that there was an Inteniion to Interfere
with religious creeds. With regard to our Representa-
tlvo in the United States Senate, he wanted a man there
who was entirely American in sentiment. And toe man
must occupy a position, with regard to slavery,
entirely similar to that occupied by Mr. detward.
But while he approved Mr. Seward's views-ou the
slavery question, and had nothing against his opinions
on the school question and admire.I hie eoularged phi-
lanthropy, yet he did not represent his (ilr. O.'sp views
onu oaoher very important qusstlon, and that was
with regard to the naturallatlon oa[ foreigners. He be-
lieved Mr. Seward to be an honest man, and acceptable
in every respect except the one he had stated. Were
he right on that point, no other man on God's earth
would sooner obtain his vote.
Mr. MAT rose and stated that he had been sent here as
an independent whig, and he Intended to exercise that
Independence wlthont regard to dictation from home.
He had, however just received a letter from an order in
a town in his district directing him to vote against Win.
H. reward. Ihe letter said the order controlled the
vote at the town. He would say that this town did all
in Its power to defeat him, and yet this order seeks to
dictate to him. Mr. M. said he would suffer no dictation
from the source whence emanated this-nor from any
other. He gWa an lndel.endent Seward wh'g, and as

ALBANr, Feb. 5S.1855.
A favorable report was made by Mr. 'SPENOIa on the
bill to protect witnesses from imprisonment.
To amend the charter of the Camden Bank.
To amend the act for the prevention *r gambling
To authorize leases of mining lands InSt. Lawrence
To amend the charter of the Panama Railway.
The last bill, after debate, was recommitted to Committee
of the Whole House. :
Mr. WmTras called up his resolution of inquiry as to
the right of Mr. Dunlap acting as a Commissioner of IEmi-
Mr. BARR wanted to know on what the Senator
based his resolution, whether Mr. Dunlap really acted as
a Commissioner.
Mr. WzrunY got his information fremithe report of the
Commissioners, wherein he found Mr. Dunlap's name.
Mr. BARR thought the resolution would do no harm,
though he could see no necessity for it. The Governor,
(Mr. Seymour,) had something of the Jackson stamp
about him, and although the Senate rejected the nomi-
nation of Mr. Duonlap, h emay have assumed the respon-
etbility of re-appoknting Kr. D., and he believed the Gov-
ernor had a right to do so. Jackson had done so in the
case of Mr. Guinn, of Missslasippi.
Mr. DlIOxmsoN would like to have the resolution laid
on the table for the present, in order that he might give
It further consideration. Gen. Washington had re-
appointed a man whom the Senate had rejeted.
Mr. Wnrnty alluded to Mr Blunt's removal from the
office of Commissioner, and that a resolution laudatory
of that gentleman's services had been expunged from the
report of the Commissioners. Mr.W. sd that Governor
Seymour had said to him last winter-"Ifyou reject Mr.
Dunlap, I will remove Mr. Bluut."
Mr. tARn said the reason the resolution was exounged,
as explained to him,was that it was lauding a member
of their own body, which, ou second thought, had ap-
peared to the Board injuciciocs. So far as the serrioes
of Mr. Blunt were concerned, be could not see why they
should be praised, and nothing said of the services of
the other members of the Board. The expunged resolu-.
tion said that the gentleman had erected monuments of
his valuable services on the island, or someiiing to that
effect Now, all lie knew of those monuments were that
he had erected a couple of hen-coops on the Island, per-
haps for the Shangbaes.
Mr. SPCER felt compelled to repel the allusions of lthe
Senator from the Third towards Mr. Blunt. That gentle-
man had been a most faithful officer, and was consider
ed by all as one of the most valuable members of the
Commission, while he acted. Th;s fact was always ac-
knowledged by his democratic colleagues.
SMr. Wmr'rOr then read the vote by which the com-
mendation of Mr. Blunt's services were expunged:
Ayes-Corrigan, Dunlap, Kelley and Purdy. Noes-
Verplanck. Mayor, Wood and Whitauens.
The resolution was then laid on the table.
The resolution relative to the Lsmmon slave case was
ne.:t called up, and
Mr. BmBno took the floor In advocacy of its adoption.

SCoroner's Inquest.
Gamble held an inquest yesterday, at the NewYork hos-
pital, unon the body of James Conway, a native of Ire-
land, who came to his death from injuries received by
nccldesntally Wlling down the hatchway of the store No.
dj Wlilalm street, on the 2d Inst. It appears from the
evidence taken on the inquest, that be deceased was
employed in the store of Mr. Loomis, at the above No..
end was engaged to hoist some goods from tho first to
Ibe fourth deor. The deceased had hoisted up six box-
es, when heb sat down to rest near the edge of the open
hslahway. He had not been there more than a few
minutes, when. being seized with a fit. be fell, with his
head leaning over the edge of the hatchway. The other
woi kmen in the store, seeing the condition of the de-
ceased, ran to his assistance; but, before they could
catch hold of him, he fell to the first floor, a distance of
cover forty feet, and on being picked up was found in an
insensible condition, and he was conveyed to the hospi.
tal, where he died soon after his admittance. The de.
, ceased was about forty years of age, and was at uone
Stime0 a sqlie; the Vattn l 7 teS army.

such would rote for the return of Mr. Seward to the
JUnlted Stlates benale
Mr. BAKER took the floor, and after poInting out the
Jesuitism ot the order of Kno r Nothings, produced what
he called the oath of the order, saying, If any member
here knew It to be a forgery, and would rise in hid place
and pronounce it such, be would yield the point. Mr. B.
read the oath. Intrsperaing the reading with sriticisms.
Mr. B. calleli upon the leaders of teas Know NothLbinfs to

Mr., WARnSUR--I only wanted to know which it was.
Mr. BARER proceeded with his criticism of the oath,
charaoctsrising the order as a detestable band of traitors,
He called upon these men to name their candidate.
Mr. LAMPORT-Mr. Speaker, I will name my candidate.
The CEam-Tha gentleman o not in order.
Mr. BAs-I-I had not the slightest idea of referring to
the gentleman from Ontario (Mr. Lamport.) The gentle-
man magnifes himself with proportions I had not
thought of. (Laughter.) I can only compare him to
the man who wanted to say four big words: "The
Mammoth Cave I GeneralJacsson! Daniel Ulmannl Fire
and Thunder I" (Renewed laughter.) Mr. B. went on
with his criticism of the principles of the order. He
asked if there had not been a meeting of the Council in
New York city, about election time, at which a resolu-
tion was passed giving the power to construe the oaths
to the higher officers. It was this high-handedastwhich
drew down upon the order thbioughout the State an over.
whelming contempt.
Mr. ltincisoN here rose to a question of privilege, and
read letter from a Council of which he (Mr. R.) had
been a member and from which he had asked. a card of
withdrawal. The letter states that he would not be al-
lowed to withdraw, but that he would be expelled; and
besides that, bhe would be burnt in effigy. It also sailt it
was intimated that be (Mr. B.) had been bought with
money. Mr. It. sald it was not necessary for him to
deny anything in this letter. A man who would write
such a letter to another, Mr. R. thought was unworthy
so much attention. But he would here say that he
would discharge his duty without regard to any con-
sideration-pecuniary or otherwise.
Mr. Lione moved that this question be made the spe-
cial orderlor Monday morning.
Mr. AiTKRN moved to substitute the Temperance bill,
but withdrew, and Mr. Leigh's motion wa carried.
Tbh House was then adjourned before Mr. Baker had
German Soctuelallsm In Rlentmond.
[trom the Richmond Examiner, Feb. 2.]
Sc Seme time during the summer and hot and exciting
* canvaRS of 1852, a newspaper of Baltimore, printed
in the German language, which we believe has long
since f4ickered out, poolished the constitution and
platlsrn of a freshly arrived and very verdant set
of Geftans in Richmond, who had organized them
selves Into an association with a higa sounding and
plilosophcal name, which we forget. The poor
devils bad evidently come over to America with the
red republican aotlon that freedom meant license,
and that they had only to dub the most abominable
infidelity and iioendiariem with the name Reform,
to be entitled in this "free country" to agitate and
organize for carrying it into execution. The fact
that they published Rl hmond, in the metropolis
of the oldest and largest slaveholding State of the
Union, such "demands" as the following. salows the
exceedingly stupid ignorance and imbecility of the
parties demandant:
We dematod: 1. L'niversal suffrage. 2. The election of
all officers by the people. 3. The abolition of the Presi-
dency. 4. The abolition of Senates, so that the Legisla-
tures hall consist of only one branch. 5. The right of
the people to call their representatives (cashier them)
at their pleasure. 6. The right of the people to change
the constitution when they like. 7. All lawsuits to be
conducted without expense. 8. A department of the
government to be set up for the purpose of protecting
Immigration. 9. A reduced term for acquiring citizen-
1. Abolition of all neutrality. 2. Intervention in
favor of every people struggling for liberty.
,1. A mote perfect development of the principles of
personal freedom and liberty of conscience; coniequent-
ly, a. Abolition of laws for the observance of the Sab-
bath; h. Aboliton of prayers in.Congress; o. Abolition
of cath upon tho'Bibl,e d. Repeal of ail laws enacting a
religious test before taking an office. 2. Taxation of
church property. 3. A prohibition of incorporation of
all church property in the name o t ecclesiastics.
1. Abolition of land monopoly. 2. Ad valorem taxa-
tion of property. 3. Amelioration of the condition of
the working class; a. By lessening the time of work to
eight hours for grown parons, and to five hours for
children; 6. By incorporation of mechanics' associa-
tionu and protective sociesies: c. By granting a prefer-
enc to meebanlaes before all other creditors; S. By es-
tablishing an asylum for superannuated mechanics with-
out means, at the public expense, 4. Education of poor
children by the State. 6. Taking possession of the rail-
roads b the State. 6. The promotion of education; a.
By the introduction of free schools, with the power of
enforcing the parents to send their children to school,
and prohibition of all clerical influence; b. By instruct-
ing in the German language; c. By establishing a Ger-
man University. 7. the supporting of the slave emanci-
pation exertions of Casius M. Clay by congressional
jaws 8. Abolition of the Christian system of punieh-
ment, and introduction of the human amelioration sys-
tam. 9. Abolition of capital punishment.
Whes these monstrous dogmas were first brought
to light, the public were in lined to break out in a
great rane with the Germans, and to take summary
steps witn the incendiaries. The whig press, par-
ticularlly, were inclined to he savage. Bat it so
happened that about that time Gen. doScott had ex-
pr r ed himself in very kind terms about the ster.
Bmg wotlt add peculiar.lingual ascent of these very
people, and the matter was not pressed by the Scott
party. As these people called themselves demo-
crats,e and seemed to be it finite radical democrats of
a very een dye, Ithe Pire party said little In con-
demnatlion just at t- at time, and so the matter blew
over. The German paper died out, we understand,
and the GermailanAssociation dissolved-into its
oripial elements.-.
We cO not think the liberties a Virginia in much
danger fromthe German Radical Reform Association
of 1852. As we have heard nothing about the 'lub
sice, and as the communityy has experienced no
pad disaster from its madcap machinations, it is fair
to presume that it has uone the way of all flesh and
folly, aid died for the want of breath. Toe plea of
the statute of limltations ought to lie against all ab-
surdities two years dead, and we are sure tie jadg-
merit of public opinion will sustain the plea iu the
case of such pitiable Infatuation and pop-raok ir fa-
Bailcism as ol the followersa o Dr. Steinmetz.
If the assooiatiou were still alive, It would be far
more apt to become the permanent and fast ally of
tbe Know Nothing order than of conservative Vir-
ginis democracy, however it might v ,te Sor a while.
It is irfiol and fanatical,and as bitterly opposed to
taid insiUtllutiois and bulwarks of conseivatlam of all
saoits as to the Cattolic church. We believe the re-
publican Slate rights democracy of this Union, and
oftbis Scate, to be conservative infts d in ct ute, In
fact aLd in theory, in poupose and in practice; and
theoefoyeto be Its exact antipode. Tt is thoroughly
and bitterly opposed to radicalism and Infidelity,
and cannot affiliate with them in any form or under
arycircumstances. The tenets of the German asu.
soclillon ofRIbchmond, that was, can never fid tila-
'vor with the republican democracy ei Virginia.
Every attempt to engraft radicalism In any form
upon 'be national, State rHghts, republican demo-
cracy, founded upon the Virginia creed, has failed,
The great Brownaon, while he was a radical pollti-
clan, and a co edit'rof the Democratic Review, at-
tempted it, failed, and left the Reviet. O'Scl'lvan,
his colleague, only a little less radical than Brown-
ton at the time, carried on the Roeto a vhile, con-
sideiably infe ted the democracy with his doctrines,
until they broke out in Dorrlam, and himself, Dually,
had to leave the Rnisu,', and to permit the peculiar
principles of Virginia zepubllconiem to nationalize
tljtmselves and become the platform of republican
democracy for the whole Un[on, and we trust for all
hn ilMe fo]cwlag communicatio to the yesterday'd
Enoqnitr, a German citizen denies the existence of
this Ge'rman association, In these terma :-
A social democratic club with such a platform does not
exist in the city of Richmond, except In the lively ima-
gluaelon of the Itluig. It is true, indeed, that about four
esra ego a cI tain Dr. S. came from Cincinnati, (a city
which o'ten sun.'e, fully vies w'th other large cities of
of the North In the invention of isms,) to preach in
Eichmolid the doctrines contained in that basis; but it is
eilUty tlas true that his mission, thanks to the scuna
sense of our German population, proved to be an entire
failure, and that he left Richmonti in disgust and des-
pair at the little success of his labors.
The Whif, if It had chosen, might have known that
very weil, as at that time it published, at the instance
of several Germans, who were indignant at these new
fsngled doctrines, a correct translation of that very plat-
form, which now. so lale, and without any provocation,
erouoes its just indignation.
We do not know btt that there are now one or two of
that emissary's disciples still lingerinag in this city; but
to hold the entire German population 0l the city respon-
sible fot.hiem, is not fair or just.

Notice to MarinerS.
In relation to the rock at the entrance of Gliucester har-
bor, noticed recently by Capt 'ebber, a GI ser pilot,
the following statement is mude by Lieut Stelwagten, in the
report of the U S Coast -Survey, whioh showist was pointed
out some time back:-
Philadelphia, Nov 20,1853.
Sir-The roeek is very small in diameter, and rises very ab-
ruptly. We anchored the boat and took about a handed
soundings; the apex could just be found with a lead or pote,
and at a distance of four orfive feet the depth woubd increase
from nine and ton feet suddenly to twenty and twenty.ongae.
You will perceive that it is in the track of vsesl, whioh
enter by hudreds into the inner harbor, paio 'ty ianI the
fishing season ofi the coast. The rock I think can be easily
removed by a I last, and should be attended to soon. Thea
harbor is so good and SO impersant as to merit great eoaidte
ration. .
Only a sufficient number of soundina htave been oopiid on.
