FRIOAT MORNING- APRIL 27. IMG.
The InsarrertUß la Sicily-.The Atrecltles
which t nnaed It. I
The official journal of Naples confirms th*
repression of the insurrection st Palermo on
the tth last. Th* rebel* attached the royal
troop* at 5 in the morning, then retired and
shut themselves up in th* Convent, which
they barricaded. A battalion of the 6th Regi
ment of the line made a sudden assault ou the
insurrectionists, but were driven back with
considerable loss. The Royal Artillery then
opened a breach, ai.d the Convent was taken
by assault. The insurgents and their arms
were captured. The journal adds :
Strata] bands of rebels having ri*en In the
environs in order to create a diversion, were
beaten and pursued in all direction*. The of
ficial journal does not speak of any Insurrec
tion, but announces thst General Sabzano has
placed Palermo in a state of siege, aud also
ndds that a telegraphic dispatch received ou
the afternoon ol lbs .»ih in*t., affirms that all
the otliei provinces of Sicily have been tran
quil, and tbat the inhabitants of Palermo bad
not taken part in the combat of the 4th.
Letter* state that on tbe evening of the C.th,
an immensecrowd.-!>,<><*> strong, blockaded up
the Rue Tolide at Naples, and raised shoots of
"itt.l La Constitu-Jerpe'' before the residence ol
the Papal Nunciy. Jr%e streets Jtfere quickly
Cleared by the patrol*.
Tikis April ll.—According to news from
Naples to loth, the insurgents, numbering
nbotit ten thousand well armed men, were
concentrated in the Sicilian I*l—fids and had
interrupted the canals communicating with
Palermo. The troops quartered in that city
were attacked every night. The Neapolitan
lleet was cruising along the coast.
TheOpinione publishes the following dis
patch, tinted April 10th:—"The insurrection
iv Sicily appears to be spreading. The dis
patch of troops continues. Great agitation
prevails at Naples."
This revolution has been brought on by
atrocities, the narration of which is almost
incredible. The correspondent of the London
Cronicle says :
The police of Palermo, desiring to lay their
bauds oa a certain Casimir Cuisamo, who, be
ing suspected of patriotism, had taken to
flight, arrested as hostages, threw into filthy
dungeons, and put to the torture, his old moth
er, his wife and his sons and daughters. Eleo
nora, tbe youngest of the latter, a charming
and beautiful girl, lately married to a respect
able citizen, underwent treatment tbat moved
the whole capital to pity. Madame Catalano,
the wife of the celebrated advocate of that
name, made such entreaties fo the Director
Maniscalco that she obtained leave to take tbe
poor young victim to her own house, becom
ing answerable for her appearance. At the
present moment Eleonora Cueima.no is resid
ing at the country seat of tbe Countess Ba—l
chibile, where she is slowly recovering. Her
relatives are still in prison.
As regards tbe torture, each commissary,
each jailor, has his own way of applying it —
Tbe details would probably b«- revolting, but
they are but too true,and can be established
by official documents, and the reports of the
medical oilleers. The famous Potitillo owes
his reputation to the kind of torture he ap
plies in the very office of bis commi sary*hip,
making the patient sit down on a chair, with
BB open work seat, furnished with razor
blatl, s. and having underneath a charting dish
of burning coal.
But tbe one ol the satellites of the Director*
General that excels all others, is evidently
the famous Captain Chemki, born a peasaut
of the village of Belmont, once a robber by
profession, and now an officer of police and a
rich proprietor. Sent by Maniscalco to the
town of Nicosia, to find out the assassin of a
certain Gorgoue—a government oillet*J killed
out of an iucident arising Irom an exhibition
on his part of an Ir.credible transport of fury
out of thirty individuals thrown into prison
ou the most indefinite suspicion of being im
plicated in the crime, Chemici chore two at
haphazards to make an example of, and to as
suage his thirst for tormeut. The two uufor
tuuaies, Rosai io Chimera, of the Valle d'Olmo,
and Pizzolo, underwent the most horrible
tn-atnieiit, such as the "cap of silence," the
"angelical instrument," starvation, beitiing to
death's door, Ac, without »«sing brought to
confess to an act they had never committed.—
This police functionary then seized ou the
wile ot Chimera, a young and handsome wo
After having perpetrated on her the most
abominable violence, *****
the |Mior creature deposed that "her hushind
had said formerly that be should like to kill
Capt Gorgoue." This testimony, so obtained,
was immediately taken down by au officer of
justice brought lor the purpose : and Chemici,
rejoiced at having au iiikliugot proof, return
ed to the dungeon of the prisoners to inform
ihem thai Chimera's wife had confessed. They
still persisted in their denial, and he then had
recourse to a mode of torture of such mon
atrotis ooscenity that description is impossi
ble. The suitercrs at last yielded, and con
fessed whatever was required. Cueinici had
them then taken, with all the display possi
ble, to the place where the crime was com
mitted, so that they might repeat before a
magistrate, and in the presence of ihe assem
bled crowd, both the avowal of their guilt,
and of the exact spot in which they had placed
themselves to tire ihe fatal shot. Whei., how
ever, tbey were brought out into tbe light aad
alrol heaven, and in 10 the presence ot their
fellow-citizens, a breath ot euergy revived
the martyrs. They raised their heads, and
with a feeble but firm voice proclaimed them
selves to be innocent, and denounced the infa
mous mean* employed against them.
A cry of horror arose from the assembled
''■ crowd, and the sbim hastily surrounded them
and carried them back to prison gagged. The
former torture was again applied; Chimera
and Pizzolo again sank nuder it; and,confirm
ing their first avowal of guiit,-were taken to
ÜBtaaa, the chief town ol the province, to be
tried. The high ciiminal court, finding evi
dent marks of the tortures they had endured,
admitted their explanations, ordered that they
should be visited by a medical commission—
who were bold enough to report the truth at
the risk of themselves getting into trouble
with the police—annulled the confession made
by the pretended culprits, and proceeding to a
fresh aud more regular inquiry, by a judg
-1 ment of the -tit—i of Noveiiib*r, 1630, declared
the two accused innocent, and ordered that tbey
should be immediately set at lib-rty Not
withsiandiug this solemn verdict, ihe uu
happy men are still in prison, by the plea
sure of Director Maniscalco.
One Point of Uk i on.—The Charleston
Courier reports one point ol perfect agreement
among the delegates to the Convention:
"A delegate" or "delegation" is a sufficient
introduction to the public rooms or quarters
of any one of the delegations, aud the sprig of
mint tastefully arratigediu s liquid bouquet
bas been reeoguized au tin olive branch by the
representatives from Maine and California,
and all the States scattered about between
these geographical extremes. Tbe Souib fnr
alshes tbe tuirst-provoking weather aud tbe
North famishes the ice and then Cincinnati
nives the platform and the "corn cordial," and
Cuba gives the sagar, and Africa is frequently
represented in the Uanymede who mixes aud
stirs the cup. and thm all find at least one
point and principle of uniou and confedera
Rbstitltion to GaiVBBSMBKT —The fol
lowing letter, without signature, has been re
ceived by the, Secretary of tbe Treasury, en
closing a*9oo, which amount has been deposited
In the Treasury of tbe United States:
•'An old soldier of 1812, who was called ont
by the Government, and received a warrant
lor ltfo acres ut land, bas some doubt whether
or not he served fifteen days, which was re
uuired by tbe laws as I have understood. I
therefore enclose the within amount of f-WO,
having disposed of the warrant."

RICHMOND VA., FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 1860.
M.BRtaoß Laws ib Si-oti.asd.—A remark
abU suit wna lately decided In the Court of
Sessions at Edinburgh, Scotland. Mrs. Cath
arine Leslie entered a salt to have It declared
thai she was the wife of the late Rev. Cath
ctm Le*lie. It was proved that they became
engaged in Wtt, and In IWT they formally ac
cepted of each other a* mart and wif*>, with
out any other ceremony or witnesses, agree
ing to keep It secret until he was rich enough
to support ber. They lived apart for thirty
years, continually corresponding until his
death In 1847. The Scotch Jndges decided In
favor of Mrs. Leslie, In accordance with tbe
law of Scotland, which, iv order to make a
marriage legal, requires no form or ceremony,
civil or religious; no notice, no witnesses,but
merely the consent of the parties ; and if this
latter ran be proved at any subsequent pe
riod, even alter the lapse of years, by subse
quent written acknowledgment or oath of re
ference, the parties will be held to have been
legally married, whether living together or
Craiova Case of Iksamtv abd Srirm——-
On Friday morning last a man named Bar
ney McMahon, with his wife and two chil
dren, arrived in Buffalo, New York, from the
West, nnd it was soon discovered tbat both
McMahon nnd hi* wife were insane. The
Overseen of the Poor had the roan sent to
the Insane Asylum and the woman was taken
to the Poor-Honse. When he was taken
away his wife handed him some money,
which he threw into the street. She then
handed him a razor, with which he attempted
to cut his throat. After his commitment to
the Insane Asylum he succeeded in tearing
his throat to pieces with a fragment of an iron
vessel, which bad inadvertently been left iv
the cell. When found he was dead. The
wife also jumped from the third story win
dow of th*- Poor-House, and was injured to
each an extent that -hedied the next morning.
Where they were from, or where going, is un
known, as the children are too young to give
| any account of the family.
Legislators to re Indicted.—The Legis
lature, just adjourned in New York, have the
discreditable reputation of being the most cor
rupt body of public men who ever sat at Al
bany to make laws for the people. They had
no regard at all to the rights of the city of New
York, but passed bills directly in the face of
remonstrance from tnose most affected by the
enactments. Sint-e they have adjourned, there
1-as been considerable public comment upon
their acts. The New York Sun says: Attor
ney (Jeueral Myers has been furnished with
evidence believed to be sufficient to secure the
indictment aud punishment of six Slate Sen
ators and eight members of Assembly, for cor
ruption in the performance of their legislative
duties during the session. If there is any such
evidence, there is no good reason why the par
ties should not be brought into Court, and
made to face the verdict, of a jury. It is acu
rious commentary on the supposed purity of
country life that the persons implicated are
mostly from what is called the rural districts.
Burch Scandal in Chicago.—-The Burch
divorce case, which hasalready attracted con
siderable attention, will probably be pressed
to trial during the present week. The plain
tiff in this suit, Isaac 11. Burch, Esq., is one
of the most wealthy and proinint-ut citizens
of Chicago, and owner of ihe Batik known as
the Bank of I. H. Burch A Co. His wife,
whom he married in May, 181*, is a young,
handsome and accomplished woman,the adopt
ed daughter of Erastus Corning, E-q.,, f New
York, and mother of two interesting children,
the eldest eleven years of age, and Ihe young
est but nineteen months old. The ground of
application for a divorce is the alleged adul
tery of the defendant with David Stuart, Esq.,
formerly a representative ol Michigan in Con
gress, but for several years past a resident of
Destructive Fire.—Lite New Brunswick
papers contain the details t-f the late great
Are iv Woodstock, N-B. One huudred and
fifty buildings were destroyed in the business
centre of the town, including the Commercial
aud Central Banks, with all their contents;
the Post-Oillce, (important contents saved,)
tbe printing ollk-es of the Sentinel and the
Journal, the Mechanics' Institute, all the ho
tels in the place except one, and about sixty
stores and places of business. The loss of
property is from _?5,000 to £100,000 sterling.
Insurance from £3S,VM to £3UfiUb. Active
measure* have been taken in the Province to
; relieve the sufferers.
Extensive Forgeries.—Stone, the lawyer,
who killed himself with strychnine last
Thursday morning, at Plymouth, leaves quite
a large amount of lorged paper—from 910X00
to #!.),0ttl» in amount, it is thought. The
names of the sureties on his paper are all
forged. We understand that all tbe banks in
Concord have his notes, and the Savings Bank
there has a forged mortgage of some real es
tate owned by Stone's wife, to secure it; »he
bever signed it. A knowledge of his forgeries
was becoming too public, and he knew that tbe
State prison must be his home if he lived, and
he took the fatal draught.— Manchester (A*. H.)
Gas Comtamkß to bb CfIED Up.—The Pho
tographic News predicts the destruction of the
ims company monopoly by the introduction of
a gas produced by impregnating snper heated
steam with coal tar. It is thus produced at
an excessively low price, and with great ra
pidity. It is found to contain one-halt less

Tub Truth under a Pressure.—A Bel
gian journal gives an example of a husband
who is ready to do justice under the most
trying circumstances. The wife being accused
of poisoning, and on tbe point of being con
victed, begged that tbe husband's testimony
might be admitted in her favor. The request
was granted, and the man declared that the
best proof of her innocence was tbe fact that
be was alive, "for," said he, "I am sure that it
my wife had possessed the least disposition to
poison any one, she would have begun with
me, whom she has hated cordially Jor ten
years." This evidence was conclusive; the
jury laughed, and the woman was acquitted.

This last-meutioued custom bas given .them

City Passenger Rftiltenys.—Wn have shown
In previous articles that these rallweys in
Richmond are not likely to prove profitable
for a long time to come, and we believe that it
will require careful management to make them
good six per cent, stock If tbe restrictions pre
scribed by the late city ordinance are removed.
Of the Importance of the early establishment
of such road* in the city there exists no doubt.
All classes express an anxious de*ire that tbey
should at once be constructed. It is a mea
sure of public importance which comes direct
ly home to the convenience of every man,
woman and child ; and as such it is the duty
of the City Council to secure to the public
this means of communication, by fostering
and advancing it in every possible way, in
stead of retarding the enterprise by unneces
sary restric-i >n«. Instead of binding the
owner" of reads down to fare at which we
have shown the enterprise cannot be main
tained, the Council should remove all restric
tions, leaving public opinion to regulate It, as
| tt certainly will—and instead of exacting four
| per cent, ot tbe gross receipts of the road; whe
ther it pays expenses or not, the improvement
! should be exempted from all taxation for ten
! years, and then be made to pay a per cent. on
the net profits. We think we can show the
correctness of this view.
First, as- to leaving the fare unrestricted.—
There are many objections to tying the parties
down to a very small fare, such as is prescrib
ed by the late ordinance. If it is fonnd that
the road cannot be maintained at that rate,
then either the enter_.ii is.- must be abandoned,
or application made to the Council for leave
to increase the fare, which it is undesirable
either to ask or practice. If it is fonnd possi
ble to run at that rate, aad not less, the com
l«any is deprived of the power, which is es
sential to tbe welfare of all companies, of
•.piling ticket* in packages at a reduced rate,
and soreceiviugmuchof their income at their
office* instead of through their conductors.—
If tbe fare is unrestricted, city railway com
panies will do what, all railway companies,
everywhere, do—begin to run at tbe low
est rates at which, upon dne examination,
they can afford to transport passeugeis—and
whenever they find that they can reduce the
fare, they will do so. This is the history of
public conveyances everywhere, and for tbe
following among many reasons: In the first
place the lower th* rate at which transporta
tion can be made, the greater tbe travel,
and the greater the travel, the smaller the
amount of profit on each passenger which the
road can afford to carry them for. The object
of passenger railways is to carry the greatest
nnmber of persons possible, and as a means of
increasing that number, they hold out the in
ducement of the smallest fare which they can
afford to charge.
If the public know that a fare of six or
eight cents is necessary to maintain a road
and pay fair dividends on the stock, they will
not hesitate to \mrj even the highest pri-«\ for
in onr community there is a* spirit of justice
and liberality which makes all feel willing to
pay living prices for whatever services are
rendered them. On the other band, when the
roads are put in operation, aud the public And
that the stock is paying exorbitant dividends
at the prices charged, they would at once re
fuse to use the cars until tbe fare was re
duced. As the best exemplification of the
truth of these views, let us refer to the fact
mentioned a tew days since, that no railroad
in the State charge as much fare as l.y law
ihey are authorized to do.
Passenger Railways in Richmond is but an
experiment as yet. It is impossible to tell
whether the roads can maiutniu themselves
here at any prescribed rate, until they have
b'cu tried, and the enly true course, therefore,
to pursue, is to leave the rate untrammelled,
and let the company and the public regulate
Now as to exempting the road from taxa
tion, instead of charging it a bonus of four per
cent, of its gross proceeds :
The road is a question of public benefit and
public convenience, reaching every tax payer
in tha community, and as such, no small qut#>
I tion of revenue to the city should be allowed
Ito interfere with its establishment. How
small that question of revenue is, will sur-
I prise those who have not examined it. If the
road carries the large number of 400,000 pas
sengers a year, at six cents a head, it would
only pay a gross income of »-Jl,t*Hi—and the
revenue the city would derive from it would
be less thau ?i,uoo* year. The bonus, there
fore, is a matter of no importance to the city,
while on the other hand it restricts the com
pany that much in Ihe reduction of fare, aud
come* out of the pockets of the people gene
rally. If, on the other hand, the company are
' exempt from taxation, they will be relieved of
abuiihen, if the road finds it hard to maintain
itself, and enables them to reduce the rale
mote easily. If the read is taxed at all, it
should only be a percentage ou the net profits.
I By pursuing that policy tliecity would be ad
' mitted to tbe benefits of a stockholder if the
road paid, while if it did not pay, the stock
holders would uot be taxed for the privilege
of furnishing conveniences of travel to all
classes of ettfaea*. *
Were the privilege of building these horse
railways sought by strangers as a matter of
speculation,!; might be well enough for the
Council to drive a bad bargain with them:
bnt such is not the case. The petitioners are
our own citizen*—many of them large tax pay
ers, and all of them interested in whatever is

their friends and neighbors to join them in this
scheme, and as tar as we can learn, no one of
them regards it as a matter which can be very
profitable, or desires to take a larger amounlof
stock tliau will ensure the success of ihe un
dertaking. It is therefore our own people

The Flight */ Stones, in the direction of Mrs.
Franklin's house, ou Duval street, continues
to attract attention, inasmuch as no one bas
been delected iv the set of throwing them.—-
Ou Wednesday last, the police attempted to be
very vigilant, aud did all in their power to
discover from whence the missiles came, but
made no discovery. At a late h«ur in tbe after
noon, Officer Morris visited the scene, and pro
fessed some anxiety to see the stoning recom
menced. He had scarcely given utterance to
his wish, when an empty buttle dropped upou
his head with such lorceas to nearly prostrate
him. Satisfied with this demonstration, he
beat a retreat, doubtless buying no desire to
see the trick repeated. If there is no collusion
among the crowds that gather about tbe house,
the affair is a very singular one, for we un
derstand that entire bricks have been thrown
through the windows—a teat that could only
be performed by some one very near tbe house.
In Owen's " Footfalls on the Boundaries of
Another World," numbers of instances are re

other novel freaks, supposed to In? the works

In the neighborhood of this house, storiesof
ghosts are now as plentiful ac blackberries iv

peated—and the throwing of the stone bible
aud the bottle are referred toaa conclusive
evidence of supernatural agents belngengaged
in the affair. Ghosts, vie are sure, have too
much regard for cold water men to attempt to
"mash" one of ihetr heads with a whiskey bot
tle ; whilst, on tbe other hand, tbe throwing
of a stone bible into a promiscuous gathering,
would be more likely to make a lasting im
pression than one of ink and paper.
