Strength and Regulations of the British
The British army not including the native
troops employed in India, consists, says the
New York venin Pott, of about 180.000
men. There are one hundred regiments of
uiianiry oi me line, aooui thirty ot which
have two battalions, beside three regiments
of foot-guards. Each battalion consists of
thirty-five officers, and about one thousand
men and non-commissioned officers. The
cavalry consists of three regiments of Royal
Life Guards; seven of heavy dragoons; eighteen
of light dragoons, including four regiments
of laucers, and a military train of six battal
ions. The artillery and engineers are very
strong in men, metal and horses. The royal
marines consist of 15,000 men, and a due pro-t
portion of officers, suited equally to sea and
L. : l . .1. . 1
wv-.- service, is nuuitiun iu uiese uiere are
three regiments of West India blacks, local
corps At Newfoundland, Malta, Canada,
Ceylou and St. Helena. The enrolled pen
sioners of the army, extra to the regular
force, consist of 30.000 men. for the most nart
in the prime of life, and the embodied militia
are not less than o,uoo strong. The volun'
teers trained and fit for duty at this moment
number at least 75,000 youth. Thus England
may be said to have at her command, in one
form or another, not less than 360,000 troops
of all arms. '
The officers of the British guards, line, ar
tillery and engineers, are all educated men,
more or less. Those of the two scientific
corps are obliged to graduate at the military
colleges ; the others pass an examination in
mathematics, Latin, French, or German his
tory; geography, English dictation, draw
ing, arithmetic, and any of the natural scien
ces they may choose to select, the latter,
however, not being obligatory. Commis
sions in the engineers and artillery are open
to public competition, and cost nothing but
the college fees for two years. Commissions
in the guards and the line are generally paid
for, an ensignency costing 450: a coronetcy
A death vacancy In a corps is filled up by
the next senior, and costs nothing; but a va
cancy occasioned by the retirement of an
officer is only filled by the next on the list
for promotion thus, if A retires and B, his
immediate junior, has not the means of pay
ing for tbe superior step, C, who may have
lodged the money, goes over his head. In
this way young men of fortune rapidly pass
over their seniors. It seems to involve an in.
justice, but it has the effect of placing men
a uu neaa or regiments wnue tney are in
the prime of life.
The staff is selected from the regiments;
there is no separate staff corps. All officers
who have attained their sixtieth year with
out becoming majors or lieutenant-colonels,
at the head of regiments, are required to
leave their corps, and are either placed on
half-pay or appointed to small commands and
colonial staff offices, if they do not sell their
commissions and retire into private life.
Those who may wish to retire to Canada or
the Cape of Good Hope are allowed some
hundreds of acres of government land, which
they may cultivate after their own manner.
The men of the army are enlisted for lim
ited periods of ten years; but they may re
enlist, receiving a fresh bounty) auc if they'
serve for twenty-one years they receive pen
sions, the maximum of which is two shillings
per diem. ..:.

Particulars of the Death of Albert Smith.
A London letter-writer informs us in re
gard to Albert Smith's decease : . j ;,
His death was very sudden and unexpected,
and he himself was unconscious of its ap
proach. All sorts of preposterous stories of
nis uiness nave appeareq in tne newspapers,
but you may depend on the particulars I now
send you as correct. This day fortnight he
walked from the Egyptian Hall to the Gar
rick Club id a'pouring rain, without um
brella or great-coat. On his arrival at the
Club he was wet to the skin, but instead of
at once going home and changing his clothes,
he actually sat down before a fire ami dried
his shirt ou his body. He remained in bis
damp clothes and wet boots until a late hour
in the evening, and the next day of 'course
found himself with a severe cold. Brorichitis
set In, increasing day by day, until pn the
Saturday he was scarcely able to get through
his entertainment. Then he returned home
and took to his bed, and on Monday he was
so III that the surgeon attending him said it
would bo as much as his life were worth if
he attempted to "show" that night. He was
told this, and gave a reluctant and grumbling
acqniesence: but, when he found that the
time arrived, that he was not to be permitted
to go to the Egyptian HalL and that his
friends had prepared bills announcing his
illness, he grew furious, and vowed he would
not be treated like a child. - . ,
On Tuesday he was so ill that the services
of an eminent physician were deemed requi
site, and Dr. Burroughs was sent for. On
his arrival he gave very little hope. ; That
evening his breathing became dreadfully op
pressed, the bronchial tubes were full of
phlegm, the lungs were rapidly congesting,
and ne could not inflate them. At eleven he
became unconscious, and remained so until
eight the next morning, when he died very
calmly; and without the smallest struggle.
He was prostrated, weak and helpless. Ori
ginally his constitution was iron-like, Won
derfully strong, and capable of endurance;
but he never recovered the attack of epilepsy
which he had five months since, and bo had
not strongtb to resist the bronchitis. There
were present with him his poor little wife, to
whom he had been only nine months mar
ried, and his brother Arthur, to whom he
was tenderly attached. For years he had
lived a very hard life, never drinking to ex
cess, for it seemed impossible for him td ex
ceed, but eating and drinking heavily, sitting
np late, taking no exercise, and doing every
thing unhealthy. i

emanates not from the Covode Committee, or
from any hostile political source, but from a
memoer oi nis own laoinet, in an oD.eial
communication to Congress. It is one of the
most serious accusations ever made against a

which may not be treated lichtlv. Fowler
never could have pursued this system ! of

collusion of the accounting officer. Had
their duty been performed under tbe law, be

Markkd by a Monument. Some years since,
says the Richmond (Va.) Whia. Lewis Wash
ington, a descendent of the General, pre
sented to the State of Virginia the lot of
land in tv estmoreiana VJounty on which
stood the house in which tbe father of his
country first saw the light of day. This was
done with a view of having the spot marked
oy some suitaoie monument Dy tne statu.
We learn that it is tbe intention of the Gov
ernor and Secretary of the Commonwealth
to proceed to Westmoreland County during
the present week, to examine into the pre
sent condition of the "birth-place of Wash
ington," ceded to the state by his descendant;
They propose having the ground (one or
more acres) inclosed and a road-way made
to it. It lies on the Potomac River. A mon
ument will be put up to designate the spot.
A piece of the hearth-stone of the ancient
edifice (perhaps the only remaining relic) is
now in the State Capitol in Richmond.
Many years since a marble slab denoted the
place of Washington's first home, but the
mutations of time and chance, it is believed,
have caused it to di sappear

More About the Great Derby and Its Result
—An English View.
The London A'nn of tha 36th alt. says of
the Great Derby and Its result: , "
The defeat of "Umpire" was a great dis
couragement to the American party, who had
calculated with much confidence upon being
enabled to carry the champion's belt and the
blue riband of the turf to America. Prior to
the race the owner of "Nutbourne" lodged
an objection against "Umpire," on the ground
that the horse was not or the age described.
Mr. Merry was warmly congratulated on the
success of his horse, and it is said that he
wins; on bets alone, upward of i70,000.
"Nutbourne" broke down when running very
At exactly twenty-five minutes prior to the
time of starting tbe numbers of the thirty
competitors were displayed on the telegraph
board. The horses assembled at the post with
the utmost punctuality, and the ringing of
the bell announced the start, even before a
large majority of the spectators were pre
pared for it. "Bentinck" was the first to show
prominently in the race, and he took a clear
lead as tbe horses ascended the hill: follow
ing directly in his track were "Man-at-Arms,'!.
, "Nutbourne," - "Rising Sun'! and
"Rostes." In the extreme wero "Sutton,"
"Largesse" and "Loiterer." '
"Bentinck" increased his lead half a dozen
lengths on going tip the hill, but before
reaching the mile-post he disappeared from
the front, and "Restes," who had been head
ing the ruck, took up the running, with
"Nutbourne," "Horror,1' "Rising Sun," Man-at-Arms,"
"Buccaneer," brother to "Rain
bow," "Thormanby," "The Wizard," "Dangu"
and "Umpire" taking their places at the head
of the ruck. On coming round Tattebham
Corner, the front lot were in close company,
"Nutbourne" next the rails, having, perhaps,
a slight lead with "Restes," "The Wizard,'1
"Umpire," "Buocaneer' 11 Thormanby,"
brother to "Rainbow," and "Horror," well up
in his stride. - .
On crossing the road "Nutbourne" broke
down, and was pulled np, and soon after
"Restes" was beaten. The "Wizard" then
came to the front, and running in the middle
of the course took a clear lead, followed by
"Thormanby," "Dangu" and "Horror." At the
distance, "Thormanby" passed the "Wizard"
without an effort, and "Horror" took third
place half way up. From the moment that
'"Thormanby's" colors were seen in advance,
however, the issueof tbe race was notin doubt:
be ran home an easy winner by a length and
a half, four lengths separated the second from
the third, and four lengths the third from the
fourth. The "running up" horses were "Sir
William" "Umpire," 'Buccaneer," "Man-at-Arms."
"Cape Flyaway" and "Restes," wbo
passed the post nearly in the order named.
''Loiterer" and "Wallace" Were the last two.
"Thormanby" was twice nearly knocked on
his head, and "Wallace" had a narrow escape
of falling the instant the flag was dropped.
A New Southern Review Ultra on the
whose editor says "We hope and ex
pect to make the Plantation as powerful in
the formation of public opinion throughout
the civilized world as is the Sdinburg Quar
terly or Blackwood1!," has the following state
ment of its opinions: , i
"We have no apology to make for slavery
in the Southern states, but stand up boldly,
and in the face of the world proclaim that it
is a just, a humane and a useful institution,
having the sanction both of nature and of
nature1 God.., ;.. , .
"1 be great error or the Ebon philanthro
pists in this country and in England is, that
tney misuuce we nature or tne negro, and
wiiamer uiiu a wuite man so to speaK. witn
a black skin. This Is no more the truth than
to consider a white man a negro with a white
sun. i nereis as much difierence between
the physical, moral and mental conformation
of the white man and negro as there is be
tween the conformation of the negro and the
ourang-outang. is or will it ao to point us to
a few exceptional oases of negroes who have
attained to some degree of mental and moral
culture, as furnishing disproof of what we say
here. Just as well point to idiots and lunatics
to prove by their coses that tbe white race is
imbecile and incapable of improvement, as to
refer to a few intellectual negroes to prove
that their race is capable of moral and mental
culture. ' -..

Kidnapping of Child of a Protestant.

Atlut, under circumstances that lead to the
belief that she was stolen by Catholics. The
father of the girl, whose name was Bennett.
and who has been dead some years, was a

Within a few weeks past her Catholic
friends have frequently visited her. and re-
queswa ner to return to tne tjnurcn with
which she was formerly connected. This she
has refused to do, saying she has suffered
enougn irom ner connection witn thatchurch.
They then demanded the noasession of tha
child, that she might bo brought up in the
faith of her father. The mother refused to
give up the child, but fearing that they would
claim it after her death, gave it, by properly
attested writings to her husband, Mr. New

Yesterday afternoon, about half-nast four

her name.- The child answered, when the

LATEST BY TELEGRAPH.
Wasbimoton, June 11. The Senate Com
mittee on Finance met to-day, but took no
action on the tariff. They adjourned till to
morrow, when the subject will be discussed,
as Mr. Hunter has promised his friends to
reach some decision on Wednesday, and re
port the result to the Senate. The present
purpose is to move a postponement of the
tariff till next December, alleging a Want of
time to consider it fully. -
Instead of reporting so much of Mr. Mor
rill's tariff bill as provides for a loan to meet
Mr. Buchanan's floating debt of $21,000,00n,
Mr. Hunter intends to move it as an inde
pendent amendment to one of the pending
appropriations by way of cutting off all con
sideration of the tariff.
Dispatches were received from Mr. McLane
to-day, which giva a far more discouraging
account of the prospects of the Liberals than
has yet been published. All the recent state
ments of their victories appear to have been
exaggerated, and it is hardly probable, from
internal discord and other causes, that the
Juarez Government can sustain itself,
even nominally, much longer, if at all.
It is understood that Senor Mata received
substantially similar intelligence. Mr. Mo
Lane is not expected to return home Imme
, Col. Forney was before the Covode Com
mittee two hours to-day, and is to continue
his testimony to-morrow. It is said to , be of
so important a nature that a cony of it will
be forwarded to the President, for examina
tion, before being made public. Contrary to
tbe usual practice of the committee, they
placed the witness under an obligation not to
reveal his testimony until it is concluded and
the President makes known his pleasure on
the subject, by reply or otherwise. .

No express from San Francisco sines the
one which left on the 18th ult., and arrived
here June 1, had been received at Ruby Val
ley, which is the furthest station west that
has not been interfered with by Indians.
The Express had not started from Califor
nia in consequence of the depredations com
mitted by Indians at stations, breaking them
up and chasing off the agents. i
Three employee of the Express Company at
Dry Creek hare been murdered by the1 In
A command of twenty men under Lieut.
Weed was to leave Ruby Valley on tbe 4th,
to chastise the Indiana and reopen the road as
soon as possible.
Reliable information is received that' all
the Indian depredations have been instigated
by whites. A rumor was current at Salt
Lake that an emigrant train had been cut off
west of Ruby Valley, and nearly all of the
party killed. i
Tbe Express will commence this week
making semi-weekly trips, and will leave
here Wednesday, June 13, and Saturday, June
16, at 11 P. M., and thereafter tbe same time
and day. t . i
All matter will be pushed through at the
