Tun Amu an Slavrhs— The La.<r Capture.—
There are vow 1,700 Africans at Key West
Florida, beiu K aupportetl at the ezpeoae of the
Federal government. Tula number was
reached by the capture of the barir Bogota, by
the DT, s. Sfeam.eioop Crusader. A.letter from
On board the Crusader says ;
We sailed hence on a cruise off the island o'
Cuba ou Sunday, the lath mat., and at last, on
the '£M, after a moat exciting chase, overhaul
ed and captured a French bark, with a cargo
of upwards of four hundred negroes on board
When Lieut. Duntßp, the first officer of thia
vessel, first boarded har, nil the poor wretches
wereanugly stowed under hatches, the cap
tain and crew appeared unconcerned, and pre
tended to treat the visit as an every day oc
currence. Lieut. Duncan, however, was not
to be thus deceived, ordered the batches to be
opened, which at once revealed a spectacle
that needs to be seen but once to be remember
ed ever afterwards. The blacks at once wild
ly ruabed upon deck, yelling and shouting
like savages, and the scene was, as if it were by
magic, transformed from the quiet of a
Friends'meeting to a babel of contusion and
uproar. The triumphant cheers of the board
ing party were returned from the steamer with
good will and in old-fashioned style. Capt.
Matrlt immediately organized a prize crew of
twelve men, iv charge of Lieuu. Duncan and
Ben bam, who took formal possession of the
vessel,in the name of Uncle Sam. The offi
cers and crew of the bark were transferred to
our ship, and, to the honor of Capt. Maffit and
the service, be it spoken, were treated with
the greatest kindness and consideration.
Upon coming on board the skipper, a very
gentlemanly little Frenchman was interrogated
a* to his nationality, who answered in a very
equivocating manner, "I have no flag—
no. papera, but I have the negroes—they
are now yours—l ran the riak—l have failed."
This is the substance of his remarks.
The Key West "Key of the Gulf" adds:
The buildings erected on Whitehead Point
for the accommodation of the negroes give to
that part of the Island quite a town-like ap
pearance. Fronting the shore and distant
about one hundred and fifty yards from high
water mark—they go down each day and bathe
therein. This in itself is a means of great
personal comfort, beside* being a healthful
exercise. The depot la two hundred and fifty
two feet long, by twenty-five wive, divided
into niu* rooms, so that the sexes are separat
ed, M well as cbildren lrom those of larger
growth. In these spacious aud well ventilat
ed rooms, they eat and sleep, and during the
h»at of the day repose from a vertical sun —
They are fed in squads of ten, seated around
a large bucket, filled with rice and meat, each
one armed with a spoon to feed with. Thir

Carolina, who will be Mr. Yancey's strongest
backer in theConveiitionj thus expressed him
self at the State Convention, when accepting
his nomination as a delegate :
He had refused to attend the meeting in
Charleston, because he was told that his pres
ence might create a division, and for the sake
of harmony he did not attend. He had ex
erted himself in councils for harmony. But
when his old constituents, who had given him
their support for fifteen years, nominated him
in memory of past favors, he obeyed that call.
Iv going to Richmond, it was no place of
ease, but a responsible ami difficult position.
That Convention would be one of the greatest
outside pressure. Delegates were appointed
from some States who would enter the Rich
the delegates assembled theie to enter tbe lial
timore Convention. He believed the Squatter
Sovereignty Democrats at Baltimore would
not yield. They would hold on to their posi
tion in the Baitimora Convention, m accord
ance with the proposition of Virginia. They
will have an additional mini tier of delegates.
They will have them from Louisiana, Ala
bama, Georgia, and Florida, thorough-going
Dougiasitea. Those men who stood by bun
through fifty-nine ballots will not yield when
they have an additional force at Baltimore.—
He appealed to this Convention to be harmo
nious. This was the beginning of a struggle
commenced thirty years If those who
accused him of being a disumonist had labor
ed as hard as he had at Washington and else
where for tbe sake of the Union, they could
then speak of their love for that Union. He
had never woiked harder, and never would
woik so hard again as he had done to secure to
bis people, and to himself and his children,
the rights guaranteed by the Constitution.—
He hud never been a disunioni>t per ss, and
was willing in good faith to exhaust all expe
dients for main tain irq our rights and liberty.
He would go to Richmond with no ulterior
object but to nominate sound men on sound
principles, and, if possible, secure their elec
Pikes Pkakebr Comiho Homie.—ll appears
that not quite all who have gone to the gold
region this year have succeeded in pacifying
their greed for the "rootof all evil." There ii
much dissatisfaction, disappointment and suf
fering among those who went thither to mi
their pockets with that which is erroueously
supposed to be the foundation of happiness—
gold. The following extract, which speaks of
tbe return of unfortunate gold hunters, we
copy from the Afton (Uuion county) Eagle:
"Yesterday, (Friday,) two men with a two
horse team ponied] through this place home
ward bouud, on their return trip from Pike's
Peak. They stated that it was 110 uncommon
occurrence to meet persons batleee, bootless,
costless, and in some instances iii an aliuosi
nude state, and without the 'rojt of evil,' with
which to purchase more; and some were in
such destitute circumstances as to be even
without tbe common necessaries of life with
which to keep body and soul together. Some
were begging for the merest pittance with
which to sustain life. Such was tbe picture
they painted of life at Pike's Peak. And such
we have every day to fear is too true. Pike's
Peak, in our mind, is a grand humbug, inde
pendent of what others may do or say, puffed
into notoriety by designing persons to trap the
unwary of all classes and conditions in life
that they may the better fleece them."
The "Princ:ks"on Horseback.—A letter
from Washington, Sunday, says :
To-day, a party of some dozen, including
the Princes, in compauy with Captain Por
ter, went out riding on horseback, and they
attracted the same curious crowd of boys,
niggers, loafers, Ac, in the street wherever
they went, as the company of mounted rt.ga
mutlius which sometimes parade the streets
in the vicinity of Dry Dock, New York.—
They have a style peculiarly their own of
rid 111 c, which is standing up in their stirrups
aud churning up and down when the. horse
trots or goes faster than a walk. Each rider
carries from two to three swords apiece, his
hat about the size of a common umbrella, aud
be generally barelegged at that.
Among the presents which the girls have
sent "Tommy," is a Testament. This "Tom
my" is a good deal troubled about, as the Hi
ble is prohibited iv bis country. "Tummy"
cannot come up to tbe scratch to send back
tbe pious gift, but trembles all over for fear
the Tycoou will hear that he is inclined to be
come a Christian; then "Tommy" will have
10 rip himself open.
Yankee ingenuity cannot be excelled, as is
shown from the fact that several of ihiscias*
are here doing a Sue business in selling, at
most extravagant prices, Japanese trinkets ot
every description, brought be c from New
York, the parties alleging, however, that they
were purchased from the Embassy.

W hat h. V£b» Meet With—Wbea the ves
sel has settled down in a sandy bottom, it is
preserved lor many months from breaking up,
ana its position may be much the same as it
would be vhoii floating in calm water. If it
be not tiltad over by under-current drifts.—
The light, of ceurae, depends upon the depth
and nature of the bottom; but where there is
no chalk to give a milky thickness to the wa
ter, tbe diver pursues his work in a kind of
gloomy twilight. By the aid of this be can
see and feel his way round tv« ship; but when
he ascends the deck aud winds his way down
into the principal cabins, he finds it pitch
dark, and has nothing to guide him but his
hands. This is the most difficult and yet the
most frequent labor he has to encounter; the
danger being that in a large vessel, where the
cabin stairs are deep, and the cabins are long
and broad, he may get his air-tube twisted
round some unfamiliar projection, and to
squeeze off his supply of Hie from above. In
positions such as this he requires all his nerve
and selt-possession, all his power of feeling
his way back in the exact road that he came.
He may have got the precious casket, to
which he has been directed, in his arms, but
what of that if he die before he can And the
stairs I The cold, helpless masses that bump
agai ns t his helmet, as they float along the lower
roof over his head, are the decomposed corpses
of those who were huddled together In the
cabin when tbe ship went down. A few of
these may be on the floor under his feet, but
only when pinned down by an overturned ta
ble or a fallen chest. Their tendency is ever
upward, and the remorseless sea washes away
the dead infant frwaa its dead mother's arms,
the dead wife from her dead husband's em
brace. If tbe wreck be in the chanuel, the
small crabs are already beginning to fatten on
The diver disentangles himself from this si
lent crowd, and ascends tbe silent atairs to the
deck. The treasure he has rescued is hauled
up into the attendant diving boat, and he
turns again to renew bis work. He seldom
meets with an accident under water ; never,
perhaps, with death, and the chief risk he
runs is from getting some heavy piece of ship
lumber overturned on his long train of air
pipe. Even in this he feels the sudden check
and the want of air, gropes his way back to
the obstruction, removes it, Mgnals to his com
panions to be raised, and reaches the boat ex
hausted and alarmed, but not so much as to
give up his place in the trade. His earnings
mostly take the form of shares in what he re
covers. If fortunate, his gains may be large;
if unfortunate, they may be small ; but no
mau can grudge him the highest prizes it is
possible for him to win.
Tnis "Championship."—The latest London
papers say that Hancock, the jeweler, of that
city.has just finished two splendid silver belts,
tie similea of the Champion's belt of England.
The presentation of these belts will lake place
at the Cremorne Oardens. Tickets are to he
half a guinea and five shillings, or f£LSO and
BLSS a piece, and e\en at that price there will
be thirty thousand people present. This will
bring quite a nice little sum of money into tbe
two heroes' pockets. Mr. Dov/ling. the referee,

A correspondent of Tue London Morning
"If Sayers were equal to maintaining the
position of Champion he ought to have upheld
it, as he has led the public to expect he would!
If, however, he Muds that his arm is perma
nently injured, or that from any other cause it
is desirable he should give up tbe belt, he
should have done so at once, aiid openly, stat
lng his reasons, and he might have retired
with honor to himself and satisfaction to his
countrymen. As it is at this moment, Heenan
is Champion of England. Sayers has retired
and Heenan defends the celt agaiust all
colliers. This is tantamount to an acknow

it a little earlier the people of England— lords
and ladies, tinkers and Uiilors—would not

Death by Lightnino— Phenomena.— On
Wednesday morning last, during the heavy
thunder storm which passed over this vicinity,
Mr. George W. Cook, and a smaller brother,
who were at work on the farm of their lather,
Mr. T. J. Cook, on the Ohio river, about three
miles above this place, took refuge from the
storm under B large sugar maple tiee. While
there, and as George was leaning against tbe
trunk of the tree, it was struck by lightning,
killing him instantly. The ear of the deceased
is slightly burned, as thobgh the lightning had
passed into the head, aud a portion of hia
brains rau out from the openings in bis head.
There was no mark ot the lightning's track on
his body, but both on the frontard back there
of was traced a/Vie simile of the tree under
which the deceased was standing, the trunk
commencing near the neck, aud the entiie
figure, bark, limbs, twigs and leaves, perfectly
aud plainly delineated, In a reversed position,

though dove by a camera.— Parktnlurs (*"«•)
The Slave Trade in New York.—The in
crease of the slave trade, and the fact that all
the vessels engaged therein appear to have
cleared out of the port of New York, begin to
attract attention at Washington and in other
quarters. It can hardly be conceived that if
the officers of the law, charged with the duty
of preventing tbe departure of all vessels
bound on illegal errands, did their duty, our
port would not be disgraced as it now is by
being made to rank as the graud depot of the
slave trade. That they have not done their
duty in all cases, has been lately proved : and
that they have neglected their duty for cor
rupt considerations, has been put ou record by
the dismissal of two Deputy United States
Marshals on proved charges to that effect.—
Hut we believe that we do not overstate the
matter in announcing that an average of two
vessels each week clear out of our harbor,
bound for Africa aud a human cargo ; and we
have received information, which we shall
verify and publish as soon as possible, to the
effect that the price for the clearance of a slarer
is as well known to those in the trade as tha
price of a barrel of pork.— Arte Fori Leader.
Methodist Episcopal Conpbrknck.—The
Methodist Episcopal Conference at Buffalo
disposed of nearly all their remaining busi

morning for its completion. On Saturday,
after resolving that the next General Confer

after some debate, a resolution from the Com
mittee, directing all preachers in charge in tbe
United States aud Territories, to submit tbe
subject to all adnlt male members of their
churches, between the racetii.gs of the Ar
uual Conferences of 1-01 and lsdU, the result
to be submitted by the BisbJpa to tbe next
General Conference, was adopted. The basis
of representation in the next General Confer

thirty members of the Annual Conferences.
The total expenses of the Confere«ic# were re

for which amount a draft ou the Hook Con

Troubles in Japan.—Affairs in Japan are
upon somewhat unsatisfactory footing, «ays
a letter from Hong Kong, dated March -J'J, aud
some alarm prevails among tbe foreign rent
dents. Notwithstanding the progress that
has been made towaid amicable intercourse,
a strong under-current of hostility is con
stantly running, which every little while is
felt upon the surface.
At Kanagawn. two Dutch captains have
lately beeu murdered in a most cruel man
ner. Taey were both quiet, respectable men,
and fcave no provocation for the attack. They
were not slain by the rabble, but by individ
uals belougiug to the nobility of Japan. The
Dutch Consul has resoested the payment of
•30,000 for the relief of the families ol ihe de
ceased, but as yet uo further official action
ha* been taken, and tbe foreign residents are
considering the propriety of orgauixiug a rule

pect is anything but peaceful.
A Valuable Block.—Recently the admin
istrators of one Elisba Harris, deceased, late
a resident of Luzerne county. Pa., offered his
effects at public sale, among them an uneooth
block of wood, supposed to be a part of a

fifteen cents, by oue David M. Hatmacher.—
On tbe morning succeeding the sale, the par
chaser In a spirit of inquiry •• characters tic of
tbe age we live in," split tbe block open, when
he discovered a queer secret door, opened by
the pressure of a long rod, and containing
bonds, notes, and other matters, besides about
B'J.tXMi in silver cola. To test the right of own
ership in the treasure, an amicable unit for ita
recovery was instituted in the Common Pleas
of Luzerne county, resulting in a verdict for
tbe executors for 01,000.

Indecency in Dees*.—At the hall recently

Mr. Richardsou moved that $5W be adopted
as the amount.
Mr. Jones moved to amend by fixing tbe
sum at ftl.onu.
Tbe question was first taken on tbe amend
ment, and there being some objection, Mr.
Jones asked leave to withdraw his amend
ment, which was granted, and the origiual
sum was then adopted.
The Chairmau stated that the next business
In order would be the election of nine Direc
tors, one of whom wotald be chosen by that
body as President.
Mr. Tbos. H. Price believed that the stock
holders bad settled upon a man for President
one for whom he would cheerfully vote—and
he therefore hoped that be would be at once
elected. He alluded to Abkam Wabwick.
Other gentlemen concurring with Mr. Price,
the vo'e was taken, aud Mr. Warwick was
unanimously elected President.
The Chairmau announced his readiness to
receive nominations for eight other Directors.
Mr. John Jones moved that a committee of
five be appointed to nominate suitable persons
for Directors, and the vote being taken, tbe
motion was adopted.
The Chair appointed the following as the
Committee on Nominations: Messis. John
Jor.es, Wra. Gwathmry, Wm. H. Macfarlaud,
Wit. H. Haxall, aud Abram Warwick.

A.Warwick. R. W. McUruder,
R. B Haxall, J. N. Williams,
E. H Mkinker, G. B Davenport,
Jos. F. Powell. Mark Downey,
Joel B. Watkins.
Tbe report was received, and ou being put
to vote was uuanimosly adopted.
Mr. Macfarland made a motion to reconsid
er tbe vote fixing the salary of the President
at fOOQ. The sum was entirely toe small for
tbe amount ot labor required, and he there
fore desired to substitute for it $1,000.
A scale vote being called, the motion to re
consider was adopted, ana the sum of 81,000
fixed upon for tbe Pre«ident's salary.
On motion, the by-laws of tbe Farmers'

ed for the govi-ri.ment of the stockholders.
