NEW YOBK, March 15.-Tho steamship

The political new? is unimportant.
The Liverpool cotton market is quiet
and steadv. The sales on tho 3d foot up
10,000 bales, 3,000.of which were taken by
speculators and exporters.
On the 5th instant, there was a J
scene in the First Presbyterian
Church of Cincinnati, altogether
scandalous to religion, and illustra- |
ti ve of the baneful effects of that
carrying of politics into the pulpit
which had so much to do with bring?
ing on the war. When the war
broke out, three of the elders of the
church-Messrs. Baird, Johnston,
and Dr. Smith-were expelled as
being opposed to the Administration ;
and, on the day above named, the
congregation met to elect three
others-the church having had only
two during the war.
At the meeting, the first thing was
to have a chairman. That brought
on a scene of angry disputation and
a struggle. Rev. Dr. Anderson was
nominated. Mr. Corry protested.
Several ladies: "Just what we ex?
pected. " Mr. Corry- would be heard,
claiming to have been baptized. A
sister: "Much good did it do you."
Dr. Anderson gave way, and Dr.
Thacker was nominated by Mr. Corry.
The Doctor advanced towards the
chair, when a rush was made, as in
political meetings. Scuffling, strong
language, and the police ensued'. Citi?
zen Corry again demanded his rights
as a baptized member of the church.
A sister: "The infernal copperhead
is none the better of it."
After a violent discussion as to the
right of pew-h<5!fters to*vote, "General
Melancthon S. Wade was made chair?
man by a vote of 31 to 37.
Dr. Thacker protested that he was
a ruler in the church, and the pro?
ceedings were null and void. Several
voices: " You're a pretty ruler; you're
a copperhead, that's what you are!"
Nominations were then made: cop?
perheads, Dr. Smith, James John?
ston and Mr. Baird ; regulars, J. C.
Culbertson, William Phillips and C.
Now the storm taged on thi ques?
tion of pew-holders or communi?
cants ? in the voting. Crowd around
the Chair-everybody talking-"trai?
tor," "copperhead," and other "illi
gant" phrases, heard above the con?
fusion. The brave Corry "reached"
after somebody, and somebody
"reached" out after him-ladies
screamed, and begged that he be
"put out." Corry's index finger
warned that it could not be done !
The pastor, preserving comparative
calmness, deplored the exhibit '.on be?
fore him of "christian forbearance
and brotherly love. "
Finally, the balloting took place,
and the "regulars," "so-called,"
were elected by fifty-two to thirty
seven-communicants alone voting.
In announcing the result, the chair?
man said: "Thank God, there are
votes enough to defeat the ' copper?
head ' ticket, even provided they all
had a right to vote, which they had
not." This was echoed by, " Thank
God, thank God," from the "regu?
lars;" and, after prayer by Dr. An?
derson, the angry elements subsided,
and the meeting dissolved.

THE ABOLITION CRUSADE PREDICT?
ED.-The Hon. Thomas F. Marshall,
in a speech delivered in the House of
Representatives during the session of
January, 1842, on a resolution cen?
suring John Q. Adams for presenting
a petition to Congress for a dissolu?
tion of the Union, drew the follow?
ing correct picture of the scenes we
have just realized :
"A more fearful strife than that
which convulsed Europe two hundred
years ago, is to affront the sun and
pollute the blessed light of heaven on
the soil of these once free and happy
States. The fierce and vengeful fa?
natic, true to the principles of, his
fathers, and the sworn champion of
universal emancipation, holding in
one hand his proclamation of free?
dom and alliance to the slave, and a
firebrand in the other-elated, too,
with the consciousness of numerical
superiority-is to invade the South,
and avenge the wrongs of Africa, in
massacre and conflagration. He will
be met. The haughty slaveholder
will greet the new crusader with
bloodiest welcome. The cavalier's
sword will leap from the scabbard in
vindication of a broken covenant, a
violated national compact, to which
he had vainly trusted as a shield to
his property and his rights. Sur?
rounded by his household gods, in
defence of his hearth-stone, the honor
of his wife, the puritj- of his daugh?
ter, pro avis et focis, he will incarna?
dine his weapon to the hilt.
"To patriot vengeance ne'er hath sword.
More terrible libations poured.'
And should he fall, 'out-numbered,
not out-braved,' it will be amid the
ht- of all he holds dear-his home,
amily, his countryjand his race."

I The Great Robbery of 31,300.000 lu
New Vorli-Furt'iitr Particulars.
The discovery of the robbery was
made ou last Thursday morning, when
Mr. Lord, on makiug an unusual in
! 8pectiou of the interior of his money
safe, missed the two tin boxes con
I taming the stolen bonds. At first he
was perfectly nonplussed, and sat
down in silence to deliberate on what
measures to adopt to secure the stolen
papers and the arrest of the thief or
thieves. He was not long in arriving
at a conclusion, namely: an imme?
diate visit to the police headquarters,
iu Mulberry street, and there inform
the proper officer of his loss. The case
j was immediately placed in the hands
I of Captaiu John Young, chief of the
detective force, who summoned a
number of his most expert men to
.'work the case up." Mr. Lord's
statement was very brief, and he could
give no information whereby the
j officers coi ild get a clue, nor could he
give the name of a single person to
whom he attached suspicion. Captain
Young at once visited Mr. Lord's
office. It is a very unpretentious one,
ou the street floor, near the Mer?
chant's Exchange. Its furniture is of
a very plain character, and certainly
bore no indications of its being a
place where so large a sam as the
amount stolen would be deposited.
Tho safe from which the bonds were
I taken is the ordinary old wall or bank
I safe, secured by a simply-constructed
I lock. Within this was another safe,
in which valuable papers, such as
I stocks, bonds and railroad securities
were kept. The lock of the inner safe
has been out of order for some time,
so that it could not be bolted. Cap?
tain Young mada an examination of
the safe, and was not long in arriving
at thc conclusion that it was rather a
poor place to keep valuable papers,
as any unprofessional burglar or bank
thief could open it without extraordi?
nary skill or effort. Mr. Lord is eighty
years of age, and it is said that of late
he has been apparently somewhat
careless as to the safety of his per?
sonal property. The following is told
by way of exemplifying his want of
I Crue care? It is%aid that, a s?tBtt time
since, he took from his safe a very
large quantity of Government bonds,
and then cut off the coupons, placing
the latter in his pockets and going
home, leaving the pile of bonds lying
loosely upon the table in his office,
When he ha " gone, the porter no?
ticed the bonds lying there, and not
knowing exactly what to do in the
case, finally decided to put them iu
his handkerchief and take them home
to Mr. Lord. On handing the bun?
dle to him, he (Mr. Lord) asked the
porter where he got them, and, or.
being told, remarked quietly that he
did not think that he had ever done
anything like that before.
It is also stated that, on the day?
when the interest on the stolen bondi
was due, he would take the tin boxe;
containing them, and, taking a seal
in his office, near the street window
there occupy the greater part of th?
day in cutting off the coupons
When the detectives requested Mr
Lord to furnish the numbers and de
scription of the stolen property, hi
could not give them, and it was onb
by the personal exertions of Captaii
Young that the list embodied in thi
report was obtained. He did this b;
visiting the office of the Sub-Treasur
and there examining the coupons oi
which Mr. Lord procured the inter?s
on the hist payment day. It is furthe
stated that Mr. Lord has been repeat
edly kuown to leave his safe unlocke?
when going home; that, on a recen
occasion, he did so, when it was care
fully locked by the janitor of th
building, who returned him the ke;
the next morning; that, on anothe
occasion, the janitor found the saf
key in the wash hqtad-basin. On th
morning of the discovery of the rob
bery, however, this was not the case
the outer door of the safe wasiocket
and the ke?y was in Mr. Lord's pock
et. The first theory of the detective
was, that some person who was ac
quainted with Mr. Lord's habits o
going in and out of his office, durinj
business hours, got an impression o
the safe key, from which a duplicat
was made; but subsequent event
have elispelled this idea. Of the $1,
500,000 worth of bonds stolen, ove
81,000,000 was the property of Mi
Lord, and the balance belonged to
friend of his, whose name has no
transpired. It was in Mr. Lord'
office not for business purposes, bu
merely for safe-keeping. There i
one fact connected witjfcthis robber
from which it may bePnnferred tha
the act was committed with haste
On a shelf in the safe, over the on
from which the tin boxes were taken
were upwards of 81,000,000 worth c
various American railroad securities
Mr. Lord cannot positively state whe:
he last saw the bonds. There is, there
fore, a possibility that it might hav
been a day or two before the robbery
and, as the bonds were negotiable
probably ere this the thief has roape
the benefit of this stupendous piec
of rascality.-New York Herald.

The Times has the following in relation
to the change in the English Cabinet; the i
report of the resignation of Earl Bussel,
however, is contradicted by the London
Globe and tho Pall Mall Gazette:
It would, be idle to disguise the fact, that
tho course of the Government since the
meeting of Parliament, has been such as
to excite the gravest anxiety among tho
friends of a liberal Administration. People
have gone about assuring one another
that everything was going well, but they
did so in tones which di corresponded with
tho words of encouragement they uttered.
Tho Administration has not been called
upon to do much, its trial bas been but
snort, and yet what it has done has ex?
hibited a spirit of vacillation and uncer?
tainty which argued ill for its future. It
has see OJ cd as if anything like unity of
principle was absent from its d?lib?rations;
the Cabinet has been divided against itself;
what ono man has proposed another has
rejected, and no one has been able to guess
what would bpppen to-morrow, because it
was impossible to say what spirit would
then be predominant." We cannot be sur?
prised, then, to hear it rumored that,
under such circumstances, Lord Bussell
has asked her Majesty to reheve him from
duties which have proved too irksome for
him, and has begged permission to resign
once more tho office of First Minister of
the Crown. We are not in a position to
affirm positively the truth of this rumor,
but the existence of such a rumor so sub?
stantiated is a fact in itself, and wo shall
proceed to discuss it and others which have
obtained equal authority as if they were
It is thc usual and proper sequel to the
resignation of a minister to summon thc
leador of the opposition to form a Cabinet.
Such a course rs most forcibly recommend?
ed, because a resignation ordinarily fol?
lows a defeat, and is the consequence of a
transfer of confidence from tho Govern?
ment to its opponents. Tho administra?
tion of Lord Russell, however, has not suc?
cumbed through any defection in the
House of Commons. If it bas fallen, its
faults, or, at least, its imperfections, have
been its own. Lord Russell b >s, therefore,
been justified if he has believe! that some
other combination of the liberal party
might bo formed capable of carrying on
the government of the country. There
are, moreover, grave obstacles to the crea?
tion of a conservative ministry. It is un?
derstood that many of those, who are re?
garded as the leaders of the party in the
House of Lords, and who formed the Cabi?
net in the last conservative ministry, are
unwilling to undertake once more the cares
of office. Lord Derby himself is believed
to be strongly disinclined to encounter
again the arduous task of fighting against
a majority in th?> Communs, if.^iodjjed,
under any circumstances, he could be pre?
vailed upon to return to tho Treasury.
Lord Russell has, therefore, if the rumors
wo have mentioned are not unfounded, re?
commended her Majesty to send for the
Duke of Somerset. It is, of course, pre?
mature to say what might be the result of
an attempt on thc part of the Duke of So?
merset to form a ministry. He has many
qualities fitting him for the highest office,
but there are others, and those, perhaps,
more important, in which ho is believed to
be wanting. There can be no doubt about
his energy and resolution; and his friends
claim for him a singular a.hniuistrative
ability, which cannot, however, be said to
have been exhibited during an apprentice?
ship of seven years at the Admiralty.
If a strong liberal Government, either
under Lord Russell or some capable suc?
cessor, can be maintained, we should, of
course, greatly prefer it; but, if this is
rendered impossible by internal difficul?
ties, we may call attention to another ad?
vantage which would accrue from a tory
interregnum. The country is at present
embarrassed by what we may venture to
call, by a metaphor borrowed from the
naval service, "Yellow Admirals." Men
who have come to the fore by mere se?
niority and tho course of promotion, who
inspire no confidence, and have neither
knowledge nor genius to justify their po?
sition. It would be invidious to mention
them individually, but it is only necessary
to recall the names of ministers, past and
present, to be aware that there are some
from whose claims both the great parties
would gladly be relieved. They exist, and
it is hard to displace them; but if they
were once relegated to obscurity, no one
would think of recalling them to a position
of distinction. * * * *
We desire above all things a good, sound,
strong liberal Government. There are
plenty of things for it to do. There is
Ireland to be settled, a colonial policy to
be determined, a foreign policy still in pro?
gress of transition, the permanent ques?
tion of reform to bo laid at rest; but if
these things cannot be accomplished at
once, we are content to wait for a season
that they mav be accomplished at last
more effectually. No one of these can be
settled without a united Cabinet, possess?
ing a definite policy, following the inspi?
ration of a single leader; and although thc
promise of such a result may at present
be dim and uncertain, wo think we discern
signs that a period of darkness and of
germination might bring it to light.
The Dublin correspondent of tho Lon?
don Post writes of the condition:
The police, both in country and city, are
perseveringly pursuing their task of hunt?
ing down suspected persons, and reple?
nishing the jails, which, if the present
state of things lasts much longer, will have
to be greatly increased in number or size.
Every post brings the news of fresh hauls
of tho Government sweep-net, bringing in,
entangled in its meshes, rebellious fish of
all sizes, from district "head-centres,"
with well-lined pockets, down to the hum?
ble " private" in the Fenian army, who has
been duped of his last shilling to aid a
cause of which he knows no moro than
what his deceivers teil bim. Day by day
the work goes on-the search for arms by
day, succeeded by the nocturnal arrests
without any prospect of cessation.
A clever capture was effected by the po?
lice, yesterday morning, of John Morris,
the Carlow " head-centre," who has boen
" wauted" for some months. He was taken
at the house of his uncle, a farmer living
near Myshal. Constable Cox, of Myshal,
and five of the constabulary were, it ap?
pears, out the entire Saturday night,
searching for Fenian fugitives, and, at
about five o'clock, on Sunday morning,
they decided upon keeping a close watch
upon Nolan's house, and, with that object
in view, concealed themselves within view
o' tho place. After remaining in their
hiding-places for about two hours, they
observed that the inmates were up, and
the little party of police, having made their
arrangements as to tho mode of action to
bc pursued, went to the house, and while
two of the number watched the rear of the
house the remaining two and tho constable
suddenly entered tho place, and found
Morris partly dressed, as if ho had been
lying on the bed. Finding himself snared,
the Head Centre made a last effort to es?
cape, but was speedily overpowered, and
conveyed, upon one of his uncle's cars, to
Carlow jail, Constable Cox having wisely
procured a second car, with a further es?
cort of police at Fermanagh, to prevent
anything like an attempt at rescue. So
quickly was the arrest effected and the pri?
soner lodged in safe-keeping, that people
i entertained grave doubts as to its accuracy
I when the news was first spread, partieu-1
larly as many false rumors of his arrost
had before been circulated.

WHAT TUR VOTES TN TUA SENATE
LAST FRIDAY SIGNIFY.-Tho Phila?
delphia Ledger s Washington cosre?
poudent says the President looks
upon the votes given in Congress last
Friday as an augury that his restora?
tion policy will be successful. But
the New York Herald, which is ever
ready to explain mysteries, places ,
them in an entirely different light. It
declares that a most important politi?
cal change has been conclusively de?
veloped in the ranks . the dominant
party. The heated ?nd sanguine ;
anticipations of the radicals built up j
a very ultra programme upon the sue
cession of Johnson after he had so
positively declared himself a "radical
man." They now reluctantly sur?
render their overdi*awn expectations,
but only in obedience to a deliberate
plan which postpones their anticipat?
ed millenium until the next Presi?
dential term. The executive council,
recently held in Albany, of the Union
Leagues of the State compared notes
on the subject. The campaign is but
a little more than two years distant,
and the radicals have formally con?
cluded that the danger of their being
thrown out of power is so threatening
that every effort will be needed to
secure iheir hold. The radical papers
in different parts of the State have
fairly opv.aed the ball, while the
league machinery is thoroughly
! wound up for a formal organization
of every district in this interest.
The signification of this change is
manifested in the general tactics of
the radicals. They are no longer
bent upon immediate ultra measures.
They are temporizing and hedging
on every hand. The watch-word has
been passed. They have cooled down
in Congress, and turned conservative
all at once in Albany. From Wash
burne in the West, and Wilson in
New England, as well as Alvord,
Folger, Fenton and Tremain, in this
State, formal indications of this po?
licy have gone forth. The Rochester
Democrat, their strongest organ in
this State, backed by the Tribune and
the recent conventions for local elec?
tions, have endorsed the new pro
SNEERS AT MR. JOHNSON'S ORIGIN.
! A flatterer once said to Lord Thur?
low: "I suppose your Lordship is
descended from Secretary Thurlow,
in Cromwell's time. " In reply, that
i great man, who was great in himself,
and not by virtue of descent from
anybody, replied: " Sir, there were
two Thurlow's in Cromwell's time;
one a secretary and tho other a cur?
rier. I am descended from the cur?
The flippant sneers of some of Pre?
sident Johnson's enemies at his hum?
ble origin will pass by him like the
idle wind. Even in an aristocratic
country like England they would be
regarded, in the advanced stage of
just and liberal ideas in that country,
as destitute alike of wit and decency.
But they come with a still worse grace
from men who are always prating
about the equality of mankind. Some
of the greatest intellects of England
and America have risen from poverty
and obscurity. Hoger Sherman, Pa?
trick Henry, Henry Clay, Daniel
Webster, Andrew Jackson, and hosts
of others, including many of tho most
distinguished leaders of the radicals
themselves, were of what is called the
plebian class. But, in truth, it is idle
to talk of any such class in America-a
land of self-made men-where public
sentiment has long since recognized
merit as tho only true standard of
distinction. -Richmond Dispatch.

DEAR Sra: I have very great pleasure in
writing you, touching the effects of your
Super-Phosphate of Lime on our cotton
crop. Having tested it against four other
preparations, the appearance of the plant
is most hopeful and promising, as regards
a large and remunerating yield. I feel
certain your manure will give from 100 to
130 pounds of cotton more than any other
preparation, per acre. It is a remarkable
fact that no rust is seen in the plant where
your manure has been used, while all
others sSbw rust, moro or less, and this is
especially the case where Guano han been
used. And last, though not leasv, as re?
gards the planter's interest, I feel certain
that cotton from Super-Phosphate will
weigh much heavier than from any ot. or
preparation; iu this particular, I believe
Phosphates are destined to work the great?
est possible revolution in the cotton-grow?
ing States. (The plants look most vigorous
and luxurious, some being six feet high,
and holding from 80 to 110 bolls to each
stalk. I aro*very truly, H. LOMAS.
S. Shaw, bf Edgefield, S. C., writes, Dm
beinber 14, 18C0: ''Having heard yoW
Nitrogenized Super-Phosphate of Lime
very highly spoken of, I thought of trying
it to experiment with; accordingly, 1
bought one sack of it of your agents ia
Hamburg, and applied it to turnips on the
poorest sandy land in this section. My
neighbor, Dei vid Glover, Esq.. who is a
practical farmer, took about half the sack;
we planted after tho rainy season and in
the dryest kind of a spell. We have had
plenty of turnips ever since the first of
September. I Keep thinning mine and still
have a continuous yield. Tne turnip? ave?
rage about four pounds each. My neigh?
bors generally planted when we had good
seasons, but failed to produce a crop.
Being satisfied of tho value of your fertil?
izer, and pleased with its results, I felt a
pride in calling my neighbors to look at my
crop. You may depena that thero will be
a large demand in this section for your
Super-Phosphate of Lime, as it suits our
land and climate."
Only 80 pounds of Mapes' Super-Phos?
phate per acre, costing ai>out $2, produced
a luxuriant growth of cotton on the poor?
est land, and prevented rust.
NEWBERRY, S. C., October, 1860.
Fro/. J. J. Mapes-DEAR SIR: I bought
20 bags of your Nitrogenized Super-Phos?
phate of Limo of yo'ir agents, Messrs. H.
A N. E. Solomon, Hamburg, S. C., (who
solicited a statement of its effects,) and
applied it to 40 acres of my poorest cotton
land. This land is on the public road,
where its effects were seen. My neighbors,
who are acquainted with tho land, were
astonished at the luxurious growth of cot?
ton wliere I used your Super-Phosphate.
It produced better cotton, and a larger
amount, than on my good land; less work
was needed in making the cotton than on
my other land. Not a particle of rust was
to be seen where I applied your Super
Phosphate, while the rust prevailed over
every other portion of the crop. Respect?
fully yours, DAVID PAYNE.
NOTK.-Mr. Payne's good land compares
favorably with the beat cotton lands on the
Saluda River. The Saluda bottoms aie
proverbial for producing large quantities

Prof. J. J. Mopes--DEAR SIR: In reply
to yours of the 1st inst., 1 cheerfully state:
1 have used Mapes' Nitrogenized Super
Phosphate of Lime on my cotton of tl.?
present year, and am perfectly satisfied
with its yield I can recommend it to mt
neighbors with confidence, as a pure and
effective manure, and would give it the
prtSrence to anv other in tho market.
