IT is related that a box of Seidlitz Powders was
once taken by the Khan of Tartary from an En-
glish Traveler, who was obliged to give directions
for the use of his plundered property-which, un-
fortunately, were obeyed to the letter. One day
his Tartaric Majesty thought he would test the re-
freshing qualities of this novel beverage, for his
taste had wearied of his native sherbets, cooled
with snow from the glacier-capped mountain peaks
of Central Asia. Accordingly, by special firman, he
signified his Imperial desire for the strange drink
of the Gaiour, and the box of Seidlitz Powders was
brought from the treasury, and the preparation of
the draught confided to the Grand Mixer of the
Royal Slhrbets. Thia uncnrinarv, of most skillful
accomplishment in the compounding of simples or
of chemicals, dissolved the contents of the twelve
blue papers in one goblet of jeweled gold, and
those of the twelve white papers in another, and,
after proclamation to the courtiers to veil their
faces, for the Son of the Prophet was about to drink,
upon his knees, with averted face, the Grand' Mixer
presented the two doses to his Monarch, who drank
first the one and immediately the. other. An effer-
vescence at once ensued in the Imperial Stomach
which disseminated his Annointed Person through-
out the Realm' in fragments more infinitesimal than
the particles of sweet odor from the musk-pouch of
the Small Deer of Thibet. This tragic event is sup-
posed to be commemorated in the gorgeous ver-
sification of an Oriental Contemporary of HAFIZ,
the Persian King of Song, in a poem where fact,
nomenclature, orthography, topography and chro-
nology, yield readily to the exigencies of verse.-
Ed. 2umes.

Explosioni of the Khan.
[Tinkle-toodle, tinkle-toodle, ting, ting, ting.]
A mighty man, was GHENGIS KHAN,
When he sat in regal pride
Upon the throne, which far outshone
All other thrones beside.
But one sad day, he passed away-
Left his bright throne forever-
And a monarch ca&e, who bore his name,
But was not half so clever.
No warlike thought, of glory wrought,
His supine soul to deeds of arms;
He'd eat and drink, and never think
Of aught beside his hareem charms.
When dry he'd wet, with cool sherbet,
His thirsty clay, unthankful
'That he'd the tin, his treastiry in,
To buy his garden tank full.
[Tinkle-toodle, tinkle-toodle, ting, ting, ting.]
One day there ran, through Ispahan,
The rumor of a stranger guest;
And the mighty Khan, (as curious as any man)
Sent forth his high behest.
That the stranger be no longer free,
But placed in strict arrest-
To thus prevent, a wrong intent-
Of this Gaiour of the West.
[Tinkle-toodle, tinkle-toodle, ting, ting, ting.]
The Englishman, before the Khan,
In sore affright was brought,
And on his trial, made no denial
Of the object that he sought;
Science his aim, for that he came,
And showing his portfolio,
Held up his head, and boldly said
"That proves what I told you."
A doctor skilled, his pack was filled
With many a dose and potion,
Each powder and pill, to cure or kill,
And patent hair dye lotion;
Some boxes square, were also there,
And the Khan from off his throne,
Said "Them's my plunder, and, by thunder,-
All must let 'em alone."
[Tinkle-toodle, tinkle-toodle, ting, ting, ting.]
Well, thedoctor was mad, for they'd served him
And he may be excused
If he straight began and told the Khan
How the powders should be used:
"The papers blue, in water brew,
Till solved to dissolution,
Then, not mind the taste, but drink with haste
And royal resolution;
The papers white, then mix aright,-
All twelve of them together,-
Then drink them too, and when you do
You'll feel light as a feather;
You'll feel like flying, all care defying-
They beat all ardent sperrits-
Which your strict Koran, forbids e'en you Khan-
'Just try themn-test their merits."
[Tinkle-toodle, tinkle-toodie, ting, ting, ting.]
*. *' *
[Tinkle-toodle, tinkle-toodie, ring, ring, ting.]
One sultry day, the tyrant lay
Upon his high divan-
And in perspiration, of royal creation,
Fretted that mighty Khan;
He'd drank sherbet, but it not yet
Had cooled his regal thirst;
But still he swilled till, well-nigh filled,
He thought that he should burst:
[Tinkie-toodte, tinkle-toodie, ting, ting, ring.]

'Twas in that hour, the stranger Gaiour,
And his powders, were .recollected,
And he had them mixed, and properly fixed,
And drank them as directed :
The alkali, with many a sigh,
Adown his throat he, poured;
And the acid next, his taste perplexed,,
Until'he almost roared;
lHe roared in fact, when, in contact,
The powders same within :.

And GHENGIS KHAN at once began,
To see he'd been "took in ;"
SA moment more, and the powders tore,
From: out their narrow bound--
And tHie Khan exploded, dike a, khannon loaded,
But with more dreadful sound!
His head flew high, Coward the ,sky,

his servant, it added, waited to show me the way.
I immediately set out to comply with the request.
Upon entering the room, I was shocked at the
change which had taken place in his appearance.
He was thin, pale, and haggard, with a wildness
of eye that almost indicated that his reason was
unsettled. He testified much joy at seeing me,
and desiring me to'be seated, began his communi-
"I have taken tho liberty," saib he) "of (desiring

His limbs were scattered round!
And his body, sent like a rocket, went
Where it never could be found!
[Tinkle-toodle, tinkle-toodle, ting, ting, ting.
So died the Khan 6f Ispahan-
Death strangely came to his release;
And his epitaph, too lony by half-
"'He died in pieces"-not in peace!
[Tinkle-toodle, tinkle-toodle, ting, ting, ting.

Story of the Burning Ship.

Late in the autumn of 18-, I happened to b
in the southern part of the United States, when
some affairs of importance required my speedy ap
pearance in Italy. The delay which would hav-
Ioccurred by coming to New York to embark, an.
the inconvenience of traveling by land at that sea
son, induced me to engage a passage at once in i
vessel which was about to sail from Charleston
laden with cotton for Marseilles. The ship wa
commanded by Captain S-, who was also th
owner of the cargo.
Without any noteworthy occurrence, we hai
arrived within a few days' sail of the coast o
Spain, when we spoke a ship which had just come
from Marseilles; the vessels exchanged the latest
papers of their respective countries, and went w
again in their several courses. When the Frenc]
gazettes were opened within our ship, our captain
read with unexpected delight, that so small was th
supply of cotton in the market, and so strong thi
demand for it, that the next vessel which arrived
with a freight of it might command almost any
price which the avarice of the owner should die
tate. The wind, which had been for some days
setting a little toward the south, was at this time
getting round to the east, and promised to bring
us without delay directly to the Mediterranean
The captain perceived that, by availing himself to
the utmost of this freshening breeze, he migh
pretty certainly realize a splendid fortune ; a con
sideration which, as he had for years struggled
with little success in the pursuit of wealth, filled
hinm, with the most enthusiastic joy. Every sai
was expanded to the wind, and we advanced with
the greatest rapidity.
On the following morning, a light was describe
to the west, apparently directly in'the course whici
we were making; as we proceeded briskly, howev
er, it fell considerably to the south of us, and we
perceived that it was a ship on fire. The light in
creased every moment, and the signal-guns fel
upon our ears with distressing rapidity. The cap
tain was at this tp pacing the deck, as he had
done almost constantly since the intelligence had
reached him from the passing vessel, for the rest-
lessness of expectation scarcely allowed him to re-
pose for a moment. His eye % as dir c ttd resolute-
ly toward the north; and-Iitiii-' the light now
glared unshunnable, and the frequent shots could
'not be unheard, and the commotion and exclama-
tions of the passengers could not be unnoticed, his
glance never fell upon the object which engrossed
all others.
After a few moments of intense wonder and
excitement among the passengers and crew at the
silence of the captain, the steersman called to him,
and asked if he should not turn out to the dis-
tressed vessel; but the other rudely ordered him
to attend to his own concerns. A little while after,
at the solicitation of the whole company on board,
I went up to the captain, and said to him, that I
deemed it my duty to inform him, that the univer-
sal desire of his crew was that relief should be
given to the burning ship. He replied with agita-
tion, that the vessel "could not be saved, and that
he should only lose the wind; and immediately went
down to the cabin, and locked the door. He was
a kind-hearted man by nature, and, on ordinary
occasions, few would have taken greater trouble to
benefit a fellow being. But the prospect of riches
was too much for his virtue; the hope of great
gain devoured all the better feelings of his nature,
and made his heart as hard as stone. If his moth-
er had shrieked from the flames, I do not believe
that he would have turned from his course.
The crew, in this condition of things, had no-
thing to do but to lament the master's cruelty, and
submiit to it. They watched the fiery mass; con-
scious that a large company of their brethren was
perishing within their sight, who, by their efforts,
might probably be saved. It was not for several
hours that the captain appeared again upon the
deck, and from his appearance then, I imagine
that the conflict during his solitude must have been
severe and trying. I stood near him as he came
up. His face had a rigid yet anxious look-the
countenance of a man who braved, yet feared some
shock. His back was turned to the quarter from
which we came, and in that position he addressed
to me calmly some indifferent observations. While
the conversation went on, he cast frequent and
hurried glances to the south and east, till his eyes
had swept the whole horizon, and he had satisfied
himself that the ship was no longer in view; he
then turned fully round, and with an affected gaye-
ty, but a real uneasiness which was apparent in the
random character of his remarks, drew out his
glass, and having, by long and scrutinizing exami-
nation, satisfied his fears, at length recovered his
When we reached' our destination, I found a
ship just preparing to sail for Florence, and I took
my passage, leaving the captain to dispose of his
cargo at his pleasure. About eight( months after
this, when I had almost forgotten the occurrence,
I was sitting in the private parlor of a London
hotel, when a letter was put into my hands from
Captain S-- It stated that the writer, who was
in the city, had heard of my arrival, and would
esteem it a very great kindness if I would visit
him at my earliest leisure; my coming would be
of the utmost importance to himself and others;

PENSACOLA, January 20, 1857.

To Advertisers.
It is perhaps unneccessary that we should call the
attention' of. persons' in PENSACOLA, WAR-
RINGTON, WOLSEY, MILTON, and elsewhere,
desiring to Advertise, to the advantages which the
SWest Florida Times offers. Commencing, as it does,
with a large subscription list, in this immediate lo-
cality as well as in Southern and Eastern Alabama,
especially along the line of the projected Ria;iro,,d
in that State, there are no postoffices within the area
of its circulation which the Times does not visit.
W., Adveriaers will please hand in their favors
as early as. possible on Monday. Tuesday morn-
ing wiU be too late for that day's issue.
W."Postmnasters everywhere are requested to
act as agents for this paper,' and are authorized to
deduct the usual commission from all cash subscrip-
tions Which may be forwarded.

As the Times undoubtedly now has a larger cir-
culation than any other paper .published in this city,
that fact commends it to advertisers as a proper
medium for making known to the public all matters
in which the public are interested, Or in which it is
desirable that they should be interested. Our
friends are not idle, and subscribers are continually
pouring in from various quarters. This is a modest
statement of facts, charitably designed for the ben-
efit of bthe advertising public, and not at all for our
own glorification or emolument.

on account of the "inclemency of the weather,"

We have received the January number of this
excellent Southern Rural Magazine, published at
'Montgomery and edited by Dr. N. B. Cloud, known
to the Agricultural public of the South as the ablest
writer in this department of'litetature who has ever
interested himself for the instruction and guidance
of the planter and gardener. At any rate it should
be in the hands of every one at all interested in ag-
riculture, horticulture, manufactures, domestic and
mechtile arts, but at the rate of one dollar per year
it is almost criminal negligence for any such to be
without it.

Such is -the title, significant of
go-aheaditiveness, as well as unrest, of a new paper,
the first number of which was issued in the town of
Grenada, Miss., on the 1st inst.,by F. A. DUVAL,
a Pensacolian, and favorably known as an editor
and publisher to the world of Southern newspaper-
dom.. The paper is of large size and, for a corn-
pend of news and current miscellany, we can com-
mend it as a first-class weekly. The department of
mere literature is also carefully conducted, and of-
fers a store of good things, original and selected.
The positionkwhich The Locomotive has taken will
be its standard so long as our able fellow-craftsman,
Mr. Duval, continues to "fire-up"-which operation
is, with him, happily compounded of energy, dis-
cretiomn and the best article of immaterial light-
wood knots.

OngSunday morn-
ing, 18Sth inst., the community was shocked by the
announcement of the death of Hon. WALKER AN-
DERSON, who, though long confined to the house
by lingering and painful illness, expired suddenly
without the acute symptoms premonitory of ap-
proaching dissolution. A native of Virginia, but
for many years a resident of this State, Judge AN-
DERSON was ever one of its.most prominent and
distinguished citizens-for a time filling the office of
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. A Christian
gentleman, a lawyer of eminent ability, and ever
foremost in the advocacy of measures of general
weal, his memory demands no eulogy at the hands
of the, public journalist, .for his name and char-
acter are familiar to all.

The news received from Nicaragua is
of the most exciting character, and though the late-
ness of its receipt prevents the publication of little
more than a summary of the stirring events which
have occurred, yet enough of bare relation, without
comment, is, given, to show that the conflict has as-
sumed an aspect which, while it more strongly than
ever appeals to our natural sympathies as individu-
als, would seem to indicate that the time has come
when National interest should'be excited and exert-
ed. Class Walker a fillibuster, as you may, the
destiny of his cause has become interwoven with
our Central American relations, and the honor of
our flag, and the well-being of our interests, are se-
riously involved. Foreign interference has be-
come a matter too glaring to be overlooked, and
however much such necessity is to be deprecated,
the power so interfering should be called to account
for such infraction of treaty stipulations, and of our
avowed position in regard to Central mnerican af-
By the aid and countenance of the British force
American citizens have been slain, their property
destroyed, our commerce Injured, and our Govern-
ment insulted in the persons and effects of those
looking to it for protection. Walker scarcely en-
ters into these considerations, and it is a matter be.
tween England and America. England has ships
with a force of 2,600 men at the scene of these
troubles where an American man-of-war has not
been seen for many months. Is this the way to
maintain inviolate the provisions of the Clayton-
Bulwer Treaty ?-the armed maintenance of one
side of a treaty of this description is a novelty in-
deed. Where is our "Monroe doctrine," our "tra-
ditional policy," and all our elaborate and intricate
Governmental paraphernalia for getting the country
into difficulties-without providing a way of.getting
out. Would that these were as ready to dictate as
bold a front on *this occasion as on others~hen
scarcely so much required. We are ever seeking
difficulties, but we want only those of our own
choosing, and when the issue is pushed in our face
by another, our policy is vacillation, irresolution,
and, almost, pusillanimity. We are greatly afraid
that the mighty champion of Republicanism is de-
generating into a. "bully," or little better.
The designs of our Government are entirely enig-
matical. If it has a hand in the game it does not
show a card, though it should have played "trumps"
to the first echo of British interference. England
has a very powerful force almost in our own waters
-where the guaranty of our right of way amounts
virtually to an authorized occupation-and we have
there no representation, no protection for the inter.
ests of our citizens and commerce. With the coun-
tenance of the English, the property of the Transit
Company has been seized. It is a strange and in-
explicable state of affairs, truly, and we should be
delighted to receive an explanation of the wisdom
of such conducting. We condemn the spirit that is
ever cavilling at the doings of those in authority,
and would be glad to have the causes for dissatisfac-
tion explained away. Conservatism had its perfect
work in the self-denying and honorable manner in
which Government conducted itself in relation to
Walker alone, but the affair became a different af-
fair when England stepped upon the scene of ac-
to find the name of H. C. LANGDON
among the Nicaraguan dead. He was the eldest
son of Hon. C. C. Langdon, for many years Mayor
of the city of Mobile, and now one of the editors of
the Mobile Advertiser.


in tne details eo the
recent affairs in Nicaragua we find the name of Cap
tain CHARLES H. HIGLEY, who commanded the Mo-
bile contingent, mentioned in terms of the highest
encomium. Leading his command into the thickest
of the fight, he lost fourteen men, killed and wound-
ed-a dreadful evidence of the part it took in the
desperate and bloody work. Good luck to Char-
ley," scatcely mpre than a boy, in years, but one
of the old-fashioned kind who didn't count their
age in that way.

Notwithstanding these dissensions, the confi-
dence of the public in the ultimate completion and
prosperity of the great enterprise remains unabated.
A few days since the sum of four hundred thou-
sand dollars was subscribed by the merchants and
capitalists of our city to purchase iron in order to
insure the early completion of the road.
The business of the road this fall and winter has
been very great. Upwards of sixty thousand bales
of cotton have been brought to this city by tho
road together with large quantities of turpentine,
spars, wood and produce.
The Rev. Prof. J. H. Ingraham, Rector of St.
John's P. E, Parish in this city having resigned his
charge preached his farewell sermon to a very
large auditory on last Sunday. The Rev. Prof., I
understand, departs next week for Baltimore. He
will be succeeded in the Parish by the Rev. Win. i
Parker Scott, late of Mississippi, a brother of
Chancellor Clark of that State.

His expensive tastes followed him into the Tombs,
where he ate the most sumptuous meals, frequently
paying a dollar a piece for pears for his dessert.
On the trial, the exquisite dressing of hair and the
sumptuousness of his attire provoked constant re-
marks from spectators."
So you see Mr. Huntington was received at Sing
Sing ou the last day of the year, and after having
been shaved and changed his suit of magnificent
broadcloth for one of prison wear, commenced
work yesterday to do what he must continue for
his whole time, unless the next Governor King (B.
R.) release him. It is rumored down town that
such will be the case.
Another murder still more singular has been
committed in Brooklyn. A fellow, Layman, by
name, gets into a carriage to ride a little distance,
and while there, pulls out a pistol and deliberately
shoots the driver of the vehicle through the head,
blowing his brains out and then throws the body
out of the waggon. He is arrested, confesses all
his guilt, says he is a spiritualist and murdered the
nan for his money, and would not have done the
deed had he known he could have found but a
quarter of a, dollar. His confession before the
Coroner's jury was given without hesitation or ap,

The tallest shingling ever seen herea-
bouts is being done by one of E. R. Morison's ma-
chines, put in operation by Catpt. W. L. Cozzens, at
Webb's Mills, on Escambia. This little riving con-

afras, titi, mahogany, gum-"all's fish that comes
to it's net," and all wood's shingles, in less than no
time, that comes within its reach. As busy as a
hen with one chicken, the little concern is so sur-
prisingly active that the heaviest expense in attend-
ing it is the pay of the three men and a boy who
stand by to count the shingles as they rain. In
future this difficulty will be avoided by measuring
and selling the shingles by the hogshead, instead of
counting them.

The above list (says the letter) may be altered
some little by circumstances. If Mr. Bright can
be re-elected to the Senae, then he is not to go
into the Cabinet; and if Senator Thompson, of
New Jersey, is defeated in a re-election, then Mr.
Jones, of Pennsylvania, will retire on a foreign
mission, and Mr. Thompson will take his place in
the Cabinet. This Cabinet, which I am assuerd by
one who certainly is in a position to know, is the
one now first in the mind of Mr. Buchanan, will be
any thing than satisfactory to the South. Three
members are given one section-Floyd to represent
the great States Rights party-C6bb to stand for
the Union wing, and Benjamin, the offering to the
Old Line Whigs. It is but a duplicate of Mr.
Pierce's effrt to amalgamate and harmonize con-
flicting sentiments and interests.

Correspondence of the W. F. Times
MOBILE, Jan. 16th, 1857.
MR. EDITOR: I mentioned in my last to you that
our city affairs were very much complicated and
that great difficulties seemed to bar a speedy set-
tlement, but since then I am happy to state that
the differences between the various branches of
the city government have been settled to the satis-
faction of all parties. The Mayor has succeeded
in carrying out his views in reference to the police,
and the Board of Aldermen have passed certain
resolutions, defining the duties of the City Marshal,
which are in accordance with the expressed opin-
ions of the Mayor. So this question which once
threatened to deprive us of all city government,
for the want of officers, has been at last settled,
and the once clogged wheels of our city adminis-
tration move smoothly and steadily on, much to
the satisfaction of all good and sensible citizens,
who were becoming disgusted with the men who
spent their time in dissensions over very minor
matters while the interests of the city suffered.
Sometime since the Executive Committee of the
Mobile and Ohio Railroad Company discharged
from the employ of the Company, the Chief Engi-.
neer, Capt. John Childe. The cause was that Capt.
Childe had speculated in lands bought by th'd
Company for depot purposes, which was contrary
to the rules of the Company. Report charges that
Capt. Child, with other parties, in whose names
the land was registered, bought land along the
line of the road, upon which he located depots,
although not always suited for such a purpose, and
for which a large price was asked and, upon hia
recommendation, obtained from the Company.-
The committee continued their investigations far-
ther, and the result is, that a suit for the sum 'of-
five hundred thousand dollars has been instituted :
by the Company against Capt. Childe. The com-
plaint charges that as Chief Engineer he, Childe,
let out contracts to favored parties at prices greatly
exceeding what the work was really worth and
much greater than other responsible parties offered
to do the work for. Capt. Childe is out this morn-
ing in a long comm~micatioi in one of the city
papers defending himself from the charges brought
against him by the President of the Company in a
report made by the President to the stockholders a

the round of amusements. They are quite cornm-

We have to-day received intelligence of a very
destructive storm on the Gulf-coast, which seems
to have -visited Vera Cruz with great severity.
The Mexican war steamer Iturbide was totally lost
with her crew of eighty-nine persons, also the Mexi-
can frigate Guadalupe was lost with a crew of one
hundred and eight persons, of whom six only were
saved. Besides these other vessels of different
nations were lost together with a great many lives.
As the fourth of March approaches great interest
'is felt in relation to the cabinet appointments to be
made by Mr. Buchanan. The latest opinion I have
heard on'this subject is that Mr. Marcy will proba-
bly be continued in his position as Secretary of
State, and Mr. Guthrie as Secretary of the Navy.
Mr. Guthrie seems to have filled very acceptably
the post confided to him.
The decision of the Supreme Court of California,
repudiating. about three millions of dollars of the
public debt of that State, creates some surprise
,and comment. This action, taken in connection
with the action of the State of Mississippi a few
years since, may have a tendency,'to injure the
credit of the public stocks abroad, which would
have a disastrous effect upon nmhny of our public
enterprises, which are struggling for their vitality
by the aid of the credit of some of the States.

Special Correspondence of the W. F. Times.
NEW YORn, Jan. 2d, 1857.
DEAR TIMES: Here I am again, although "unused
to public speaking, and feeling slightly embar-
rassed," still I give you my budget of New York
life and news. A Happy New Year to you all in
Florida. Oh!I what a glorious day it was yester-
day. Bright, warm, and sun-shiney, we gentle-
men did our utmost to improve the smiling weath-
er and visited all our lady acquaintance. It was
well kept, I have no doubt, in Pensacola. What
amused me most though in the way in which you
Southerners celebrate the day, (you know I spent
the last New Year at that place),was that the gen-
tlemen should refuse to imbibe any, even smile
with the ladies. Gentlemen here are rather more
complimentary, and pain, taking, for those whom
I saw along toward the latter part of the day were
decidedly blase in appearance and going it like
blazes. Wine, brandy, turkey, ham, and sand-
wiches were flourishing in all their pristine, and
culminated grandeur on nearly every table flanked
with cakes, sweatmeats, and-mince pies. Your
correspondent must admit that the temptations
and attractions thrown into his immediate path by
sundry fair damsels on New Year's day, were really
undeniable, and it was with the greatest difficulty,
and in almost every case, only by complying with
their kind, but cruel demands, that he could es-
cape from their angelic tormenting. Carriages,
liveries,horses and bufferer" which suffered "some,"*
and the insiders, in many cases, suffered "sum-
mer"-that is internally, probay, from their too
frequent contact with the smiling happy faces
which greeted their callings, and the coffee steam-
ing hot, as it was-"p'raps." However, many a
one, and sometimes, tou. together, went home
about morning with a slight (hie) feeling of (hie)
eating too (hie) much less (hie) lemon (hie) ade.
I feel myself kinder squeamish even now while wri-
ting this, for the effect of New Year's day, spent
in New York, does not pass off as quickly as one
might wish, but is felt, and tangibly too, for a
week afterwards.
Opposed entirely to all opinion of the press and
public, Charles B. Huntington was found guilty last
week and sentenced to four years and ten months
at the State's Prison with hard labor. The follow-
ing, from the New York Tribune, will show you
how the gentleman lived in domestic circles and
where his money went:
"Huntington's career in the street was fully
paralleled in the magnificence of his private life.
After moving eight or ten times within three years,
he purchased a splendid house in a fashionable
quarter up town, which he proceeded to furnish
with a princely disregard of expense. His furni-
ture was of carved rosewood; his silver plate
filled a large iron safe; he had vases in his parlor,
some of which cost from $250 to $700 a pair. On
Sunday he used to dine off silver, and would
sometimes, even when alone, hire a brass band of
twelve musicians to play in the house. He kept
from ten to a dozen servants, and two dogs, one
weighing one hundred and fifty and the other two
pounds-the latter costing 836. His riding bills
averaged from $60 to $100 a month, and some-
times ran up to $12 a day. He owned six or eight
carriages of different styles and several spans of
horses at a time, one of which cost nearly $3,000.
His Broadway tailor's bill was from $600 to $800
for the past year, in the course of which he bought
from 26 to 80 pairs of pants, 8 to 10 coats, and 16
to 20 vests alill highest-priced articles. Other fur-
nishings and toilet articles were purchased in
abundance and costliness to match. He seldom
asked the price of anything, often did not wait for
his change, however large it might be, and would
give large perquisites to his grooms (of whom he
had four) and others who waited upon him. He
was not economical even in his religion, but owned
several high-priced pews in churches of different
denominations. No man ever smoked so much;
he was scarcely ever seen without a cigar in his

Spitrent care, and, although no man can tell wheth
Ser there was any spitefulness which instigated the
- act, yet the jury brought a verdict of "willfu
murder." The press are of opinion that the man
is insane, and it may save him from the State'
3 Prison, but not from the Lunatic Asylum.
Lectures, lecturers and public speaking, are as
plenty in this "small place" as buzzards in a carrion
pile. Some little amusement has been made bj
brother ,W. G. Simms, of South Carolina, who
came to New York to lecture on the "State o:
South Carolina in the Revolution." -The first night
the house was crowded, but the lectures were ab
solutely so indifferent and meagre, that on the
night of the second of the course, there were not
a -sufficient number to fill the first bench, which
holds, ordinarily, five people. Simms went off in
a "huff," swearing that the New York press, as a
professional body, were a set of scoundrels and
bitterly slandered him, in their reports on his pre-
vious lectures. Now, my opinion is that Mr. Simms
had better soak his head for a fortnight and apply
mustard draughts to his feet in order to draw out
some new idea if he has any that his next attempt
may meet with better success and popularity. New
York people will not go Jo listen to "trash," and
Simms's lecture (the first one) was nothing else.
Here is a little extract-read it, for it explains to
you all the machinery of the lecture fraternity:
Some of our unsophisticated country friends
complain of a class of Public Lecturers who-un-
like a popular city divine, who frankly says, "I
lecture for F.A.M.E.-that is, Fifty, And My Ex-
penses"--are accustomed to turn up their respec-
tive nasal protuberances at the idea of being paid
for their services, and yet feel abominably ill-used
if they are not paid, and pretty roundly paid, too.
A recent dialogue between an illustrious ex-Sena-
tor and" the Chairman of a Lecture Committee will
illustrate the matter more clearly:
Chairman-Col. B., what shall 'we pay you for
your Lectnre last evening ?
Lecturer-Sir, I don't lecture for pay.' I have a
very different motive.
Chairman-Certainly: we fully understand that.
But we cannot consent that you should come to us
at your own cost. For what sum shall I fill up a
check for your expenses?
Lecturer-You may make it two hundred dol-
lars. But I wish it distinctly understood that I
don't lecture for money.
The general reader will be struck with the close
resemblance-almost amounting to a plagiarism-
between the above and a familiar colloquy in the
"Pickwick Papers," which, for the benefit of the
few who have not read "Pickwick," we subjoin.:
"Wot's your usual tap, Sir ?" inquired Sem.
"Oh, my dear young friend," replied Mr. Stig-
gins, "all taps is vanities."
"Too true, too true, indeed," said Mrs. Weller,
murmuring a groan, and shaking her head assent-
"Vell," said Sam, "I des-say they may be, Sir;
but rich is your pertickler wanity? Vich wanity
do you like the flavor on best, Sir ?"
"Oh my dear young friend," replied Mr. Stig-
gins, "I despise them all." "If." said Mr. Stig-
gins, "if there is any one of them less odious than
another, it is the liquor called rum-warm, my
dear young friend, with three lumps of sugar to
the tumbler."
Strakosch is about to open the Italian opera
again at the Academy of Music. Jiterini, Ama-
lia Patti, Dr. Augri, Cora Wilherst and other ar-
tistes are engaged and the expectations are great
in its successful run. Mad. Wilherst is, as.I sup-
pose you are all aware, the Fifth Avenue Belle-
who, living in fine style, ran away with and married
the Count Wilherst, he. music master, and by do-
ing so incurred the displeasure of her friends and
family. Turned upon the world with her husband,
she appeared upon the stage as a prim& donna,
and, strange to say, succeeded to her highest aspi-
rations. Her friends have since made advances of
reconciliation, but she refuses all sympathy from
them and contents herself with being the favored
child of the public.
Our sister, Laura Keene, has been doing things
up "brown" at her splendid little temple during the
week, and has just brought upon the boards a new
comedy, "I Dine with my Mother," a neat little
thing, translated from the French. McLaughlin
and Corbyn did the business, tearing the original
copy in two parts, each took- his share to translate:
Corbyn made a literal one; McLaughlin one rather
too liberal, so that the two parts are entirely oppo-
site from one another. But Laura would have it
unaltered and did too.
Burton has Mrs. Barron, formerly Miss Julia
Bennett, playing for him. She draws big houses.
Mrs. John Wood, late of the Boston theatre, is
here now and made her debut at Wallack's last
Week in Charley Walcot's new outrage burlesque
on "Hiawatha," and is a complete success. Clev-
er, talented and pretty, she reigns supreme.
Panoramas are plentiful and various, besides
very variegated. Business has been very lively this
last week, and the market stocked with all and
every thing. "Live and let live" has always been
the motto here, and always will be that of your
speciality inferno. JUBAL CAIN.

From the Evening Delta of Thursday we copy
the following fuller telegraph reports of the news
by the steamer Texas:
Southwest Pass, Jah, 15.-The steamship Texas,
J. A. Crowell, commander, from San Juan del
Norte, arrived this morning.
The Texas arrived on the 4th, and the Sierra
Nevada, from San Francisco, arrived at San Juan
del Sur on the morning of the 2d. The James
Adger, from New York, arrived at San Juan del
Norte on the 9th, and left on the 10th, with the
California papers, for Aspinwail; the Texas, for
New Orleans, the same day.
The troops under Gen. Henningsen, numbering
about 400 men, were besieged 19 days at Granada
by a force of about 3,400 of the enemy on the
8th ult. Gen. H. received reinforcements of 200
men, and, on the 19th, succeeded in driving the
enemy from the place, and in removing to Rivas,
the present capitol, all the military stores and doc-
uments uninjured.
The loss of Gen. Henningsen during the siege
was about 200 killed andi wounded, that of the
enemy about 1,400. The utmost bravery and en-
thusiasm were exhibited by the Americans during
the whole siege, and so complete a victory, against
such odds, the pages of history do not afford.
The( city of Rivas, the present capitol, was taken
possession of without a single shot being fired-
the enemy having evacuated at once on learning
the approach of the American forces on the 23d
SOn the 23d ultimo, a force of three .hundred
Costa Ricans, under a man named Spencer, a for-
mer employee of the company, came down the Ser-
ra Ferrinas river and thence to Punta Arenas, took
possession of the river boats lying there, hoisting
the Costa Rican flag, taking all the boats on the
river, till they met the San Carlos, having on board
the California passengers for New York and New
Orleans, when, on promise of taking them safely
to Greytown on one of the boats in his possession,
they accepted his proposal, and arrived at Grey-
town the following day, just as the Texas was heav-
ing in sight.
This man Spencer seeing the Texas, stove up the
benches and all other work of the boat that could
be removed without injury to her speed, and made
all haste to get out of the port.
A force of men for Gen. Walker, numbering
about three hundred, armed and equipped, had ar-
rivedat Punta Arenas before the Texas left, and
had quartered on the Point, waiting for the repair-
ing of another steamer, which would be completed
in about five days, when they 'would proceed up
the river and recapture the steamer, and endeavor
to take the traitor Spencer.
Just as the Texas was leaving a messenger ar-.
rived with the newslthat Gen. Walker, fearing from
the delay of the boats, that all was not right, had
come over, to San Carlos and there learned the
true state of affairs, and at once recaptured the
former and was making his way down the river as
speadily as possible, scattering all in his way.
The Costa Ricans, protected by the English, have
'taken possession of the steamers on the San Juan
river, and cut off communication with Walker.
Gen. Walker is in force at Rivas and had raised
the siege at Granada and brought off all his artil-
Tnm COTTON CROP OF 1856.-It has already been
well settled that the crop of cotton for the year
1856 will not reach the amount of three millions
of bales, and as the season passes, the probabili-
ties are that it will falt-short of that at least 800,.
000 bales. ` The Senators and Representatives from
the cotton growing States in Congress, have been
communicating with each other regarding their
personal observation upon the matter,.while can-
vassing their districts during the late political cam-
paign, and their conclusion upon the comparative
amount of this and last years' crop are in sub-
stance as follows:
In Texas the crop will exceed that of 1855, by
20 per cent. in consequence of increase of land in
cultivation and hands from immigration. 'In some
portions of Arkansas, the increase will be 10 per
cent., from a similar cause; while in other portions
it will fall short 20 per cent. Louisiana reports the
crop 20 per cent. short; Mississippi from one-quar-
ter to one-half short; Alabama, Georgia, Tennes-
see, North Carolina and Florida, tell a like story;
and in South Carolina Mr. Orr estimates the crop
at one-fourth short of 1855; Mr. Keitt at one-
bird short: Mr. Brooks at one-fourth short; and
Mr; Boyce and Mr. McQueen at more than one-
fourth short.

(@ A memorial has been sent from Norfolk,
Va., to Congress for inspection of Iron, as a meas-
ure of humanity, to prevent the use of bad iron in
machinery for steamboats, railroads and other con-
veyances, by which so much life and property has
been sacrificed.

DEATH Or CAPT. CASEv.-This officer of the army,
long Indian Agent for South Florida, died at Tamp.
on the 25th ult.
Capt. Casey graduated at West Point in 1827, and
entered the 2d Regiment of Artillery. He was ap-
pointed Commissary of Subsistence the 7th of July,
1838, and served under Gen. Taylor in Mexico, but
the elevated position of Monterey being very unfavo-
rable to his disease, he was compelled to seek a resi-
dence nearer the level of the sea, and selected

r THE AGE.-Mr. Kennedy, of Roxbury, has
discovered, in one of our common pasture weeds,
a remedy that cures every kind of humor, from the
worst Scrofula down to a common Piniple.
He has tried it in over 1,100,cases, and never
failed, except in two cases, both thunder humor.
He has now in his possession over 200 certificate
of its virtue, all within twenty miles of Boston.
Two bottles are warranted to cure'a nursing sore
One to three bottles will cure the worst kind of

Two to three bottle will clear the system of boil.

Two bottles are warranted to cure running of the

Four to six bottles are warranted to cure corrupt
A benefit is always experienced from the first
bottle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the
above quantity is taken.
Reader, I peddled over a thousand bottles of
this in the vicinity of Boston. I know the effects
of it in every case. So sure as water will extin-
guish fire, so sure will this cure humor. I never
sold a bottle of it but that sold another, after av
trial, it always speaks for itself. There are two
things about this here that appears to me surpri-
sing-first, that it. grows in our pastures, in some
places quite plentiful, and yet its value has never
been known until I discovered it in 1846: second,
that it should cure all kinds of humdr.
In order to give some idea of the sudden rise
and great popularity ef the discovery, I will state
that in April, 1353, I peddled it, and sold about six
bottles per day. In April, 1854, I sold 'over a
thousand bottles per day of it.

SMy dear friends, when the ability of Hercules had
been tested in'every imaginable way, a twelfth and
umnimaginable labor was put upon him by his severe
task-master, and he was ordered to cleanse the Au-
gean stables. For the first time the strong man
faltered. He did not exactly show the white feath-
er, but he exercised discretion, and took into con-
sideration not only the severity but the indignity of
the employment. The demi-god sat down on a pile
oT lurnriher in 'front of the mammoth cowhouse he
was appointed to purify, took out his jack-knife,
and begun to whittle a juniper shingle, while he
0rneid the niatitr over in his mind, and an 'old so-
ger' in his cheek. He looked at it pro and con; he
wis-ted it in every imaginable way, and having at
length tini-h,:d the shingle and the 'old soger' and
decided to do it, he took a fresh quid and fresh
slhingle and began to consider the best way of do-
ig. it.. *
Even so it was with us. Like Hercules-except
as rewgrds the weed, which we esbchew, not chew
-we sati down and pondered over the magnitude
Sof the, elf ininosEd task, the cleansing of the Au-
gean stable of, literature-of the foul world of uni-
versal newspdper']om. Like Hercules, we be'ide.l
to do ir; like Her-ulh.s, we decided upon the best
way:of ,dgipg it; like Hercules, we pitcht-in and
are doing it; and, per Hercule! we mean to keep
itb it.'til universal newspaperdom cries peccavi!
and shows its skirts pure and white as the frost on
the Public Sqiuarc last Monday morning week, my
dear friends.
We Acknowledge the toughness of universal news-
ptperdb,"'but not to'the extent which it affects,
and consider its appearance of silent contempt a
mean deception, and of a piece with its kindred de-
prvtiy'; it presents a smooth surface of corruption,
elevating no particular point of wickedness to en-
(b hunter and be swept away by the floods of our in-
diggaat eloquence. It is a trick we happen to be
up to, and govern ourselves to defeat its object;
the quality of our articles, is made more searching;
there is a stronger in fi ion of 'thie ley of vitupera-
tion, the potash of invective, the sal-soda of argu-
mveit,4the conion Ibrown saOipof abusive epithet,
arid as wt our labors are without apparent effect.
There is e1dentrly :"a screw loose somewhere" or

i.vinerabiity. 'We asked our friend PoTATo-what
1 thought about the matter, and he said when he
t9wasini South America," &e., &c. At loss to dis-
cb6ver the cause of NO EFFECT, we shall continue tb
address ourself to the CAUSES which have produced
np effect, by hammering away weekly with the An-
n'hilatory sledge-hammer of the Fillibuster.

PoTATolhas saved all his money to go to the Cir-
'cuswith-and therefore had no quarterwherewith to

s~prty which constitutes the ground-work of his po-
emt "Johnsodi, or the Adventures of a Man." In

J A 3dr ATT-' 2


Many years anterior to the cession of Florida to
the United States, in a house of antique Spanish
origin, situated in theoutsquirts of the city of Pen-
sacola, there dwelt a maiden of exceeding loveliness.
The peculiar character of her beauty, the warm
glow: of her "brunette complexion, showed that Cas-
tilian blood did not course unmixed through her
sweet veins, but was mingled with the hot life-cur-
rent wbich inspired the fiery Moors who reared and
trod, in lordly state, the matchless'1 halls of the Al-
hambra. Her name was Miss Polly. She did not
dwell alone, for her father, a Spanish gentleman of
the old school, was the watchful Cerberus of her
maiden innocence. His name was Jones., The al-
leged nobility of his descent and the nature/ of his
professional occupation, caused the citizens to pay
him much respect and many pesos and reals for l.s
fish. He was a fisherman., So they dwelt-old
Jones and his youngest and only daughter, Miss
Polly Jones-in blissful quietude and the ancient
homestead which had been the abode of his father
and her grandfather. There came a change.
The maiden's eye-both EYE-lost its brightness,
and the paly cast of thought stole its pallor o'er
her cheek-both CHEEK-robbing her of her youth-
ful bloom and of her appetite. She was sick. Mr.
Jones noted with the anxious solicitude of a doat-
ing parent these changes in his daughter's appear-
ance, and finally resolved to seek medical advice.
He called a doctor. The medico was a worthy man
in his 'way, and his way was to 'cup, bleed, blister
and leech; 'but, bless your soul, his art might draw
the blood from the maiden's heart, but the secret
which was gnawing at its core would not come with
it, for love laughs at, venesection. His name was
Doctor Sangrados.
Old Jones's tardy suspicion Was at length awak-
ened and himself by the strange sound of some one
whispering below his breath and his daughter's win-
dow, and slipping Out of bed in a great passion and
a pair of old flannel (net) drawers, he seized a very
lUrge old musket, raised the window-sash and his
voice and shouted "Who's there ?"--his aim and
object being the object he was to aim at with the
old musket, which had an iron lock with a flint in
it, which constituted a flint lock, or lock made of
flint. No one answered..
Old Jones crawled quietly back, and got into bed
and a comfortable nap, when the sound of stealthy
whispering again disturbed the stillness and his
slumber, and he and his anger rose again. Mr.
Jones was mad. Stealthily he crept to the back
door, restraining the outburst of his wrath and of
the old hound that was anxious to burst out in a
deep-mouthed bark and through the door in pursuit
of the offender. He grasped the' musket. Cau-
tiously he opened the door, crept round the corner,
and cocked the old musket and his eye in the en-
deavor to see through the darkness and the myste-
ry. He saw something.
Through the gloom of the night the object ap-
peared to be the person of a gentleman-rival in the
fishing business and the affections of his daughter,
whose hair was "Spanish-brown," and whose name
was Senor Don John J. Smith. It was'Don John J.
Smith. He was leaning against the gnarled trunk
of a 'simmon-tree, and speaking in a whisper and
the fondest language of love and admiration, and
begging Miss Polly to quit her father's house and
her state of single blessedness, and to fly with him,
trusting in his love and fishing boat, which was by
the shore and which, hlie assured her, was light and
free. Don Jones crept nearer.
Miss Polly in an old dressing-gown, a flood of
tears, and a sad quandary, leaned from the second-
story window and tenderly remonstrated with her
lover on the impetuosity of his passion. He was
inflex-ible. Hie told her to make up her mind and
a bundle of necessaries at once, not forgetting to
put in the latter a new pea-jacket of her pa's which
suited his person and his taste exactly. Old Jones
"fairly r'ared." He raised himself to his feet and
his gun to his shoulder, drew a hard breath and a
deadly aim and the trigger, but no report followed.
She (the musket, not Miss Polly) missed fire.
Don Jones ripped out a profane oath and a large
stiletto from his belt, "let slip the dogs of war" and
his old hound, 'and charged upon Senor Smith,
who discharged himself in the direction of the
swamp, running like a son-of-in-gun. Don Jones
pursued. He, raging like an intoxicated locomo-
tive, followed Senor Smith, the latter seeking the
swamp and safety, *d the former revenge and the
latter. He couldn't' catch him. The hound did,
however, by good luck and the corduroys, just as
Don Snith was shinning up a black-jack tree, a se-
cure position in which was attained at 'a great sac-
rifice of dry-goods-below cost" and the knee. Don
Jones came to the spot.
He dared Smith down; Smith dared him up;
Don Jones said he'd go after his gun; Senor Smith
said he'd like to have him leave for a little while ;
Jones had Smith treed; Smith had Jones aground;
Jones swore, in low bass; Smith laughed in high
glee; Don Jones tried to cut the tree down with
'the point of his stiletto; Senor Smith told him to
go ahead and to thunder; Jones sat down and
looked up; Smith sat up and looked down. Miss
Polly appeared.
She came as mediator, and as she appeared on
the ground and "walking in beauty, like the night
of summer climes and' starry skies," and the old
dressing-gown, Senor Smith's heart leaped with de-
light, and he, himself, from the tree. He was not
afraid. He apologized to Miss Polly for the loss of
one leg of his breeches, took her hand, and the
twain knelt at once and Don Jones's feet, asked his
blessing, and hf" stad "rise, my children." Next
day SenorSmytthe was the partner of Mrs. Polly's

bosom and of Don Gones in the fishing business.

"To sholww the very age and body of the TIMES."

The undersigned proposes to publish, in connec-
tion with THE DAILY MESSENGER, a weekly paper,
to be called the 'MONTGOMERY MESSENGEr.
As in the announcement of our weekly, we shall
in this indulge in no extravagant promises. With
the daily as with the weekly MESSENGER, we shall
try to make it "The herald of a busy Word;" an
epitome of the Times, by culling for its columns,
from every source within our reach, articles on all
subject-t/o94 pithy paragraphs; for, in this "fast
age," as it is appropriately styled, the newspaper is
not the place for long essays and disquisitions, on
any subject. It should be multum in parvo-as
full of news "as a hickory-nut is of meat;" and
this is what we shall endeavor to make the weekly
Into the politics of the day .we shall not enter.
To this determination, however, there is one limi-
tation: In the struggle now going on between the
North and the South, we could not be silent if we
would. A native of the Southern soil, our heart's
warmest feelings cluster around its interests; and
whenever these are invaded, our arm, feeble as it
is, will not be laggard in the fight.
The undersigned would respectfully appeal to
the friends for whom he has so long catered edito-
rially to exert themselves a little in behalf of his
new enterprise. Hle has at least one "hundred true
and tried" friends in the State, each of whom can
send the names (and money) of ten subscribers,
within ten days after reading this prospectus ; and
they are the men that will do it.
It is intended to issue the first number of this
paper on the 14th of January, 1857, and we shall
be under obligations to those who will send us.-a
list of subscribers previous to that time.
A commission of ten per cent. will be allowed to

The marked characteristics of these dscraes
are simplicity, directness, and eartnestness, in _pw
claiming the cardinal doctrines aid vital 'ecp
of the Gospel, and carrying home its appeals to the
heart, and conscience.. The author, absorbed in
the pursuit of these objects, does,,not step aside
from his traight-forward course, to cull 4 cieru.of
fancy for the embellishment of his thoughts; but*
in a plain style, with godly sincerity, andwithout
resort to rhetorical accessor*A, he succeeds in awa-
kening a serious and intense interest l spiritual
things. '

his preaching, rtrold lead' omet6 rak him ajf.g

Mr. Coxe set odt-on his tour 0* iii.
lifications for an- appreciative tour in tihe meosher
country. For he possessed an acquainaene with
English geography, history, and lifteratum siuq as
few American scholars can boast. No one -can
read this volume without being impi-6essed 'witli thb
evidence of this intimate and thorough knowleadge,
not gained in the course of travel, but. a trch,
throwing i.ts light before to illuinniate the. pathway
of the traveller. -.
As a literary performance, then, Mr. Coxe'seo-
lume is entitled to take high rank in. the .clama of
work to which it belongs. In fact it reminded Fa
pleasantly of "Eustaee s Clasical Tour in, Italy4
And substituting British for Latin authors, we mihf.

He is thoroughlyread up. Works as late as Co
nybeare and Howson, and Eradie, are repeatedly
referred to, and have been as thoroughly worked
in, as any old commentators. Nay, the pretfaco
concludes with a regret that the author has not
been able to consult, for his book, two other works,
which, at the time his own was put to press,' had
not yet appeared. This is highly characteristic of
the indefatigable diligence, and also tbeleepqo-
desty, without which the truest and highest degr*
of learning is impossible.-[Chureh Journal.'
