Timf.lt Information. A paragraph in
the Rochester Democrat, says, on the author

the lemon, if rubbed over the hands and face,
"will entirely protect them against the bites

proved this positively true, on a fishing

Commodore Stewart. In looking over the
list of retired officers in the House naval bill,
we find the name of this gallant veteran offi

good to recount the brave deeds of this son
of the sea. As long ago as the years 1798-9
we find him commanding an armed vessel of
this government, and he has ever borne the
character of being dauntlessly brave, and a
most skillful seaman. It was he who com

Adjournment of Congress.
The formal adjournment of congress takes
place to-day at 12 o'clock; but the actual
cessation of business occurred at 4 o'clock
on Friday last, and before night most of the
members were on their way home.
The message of the president, with his
veto of the harbor and river bill, was receiv
ed by the house at noon on Friday, but so
many members had left town that a quorum
could not be mustered, and hence no action
was taken nnon it. Of rnnrcp tho hill 1,1
nof have been passed over the president's
head, and therefore nothini couVhaS
gained by any action.

The Greytown Affair.
The following l is extracted from a state
ment of Mr. Millar, who was on board the.
steamer at the time Capt. Smith 'shot Iho
native Antonio, and for which the authori
ties of Greytown attempted to arrest Smith,
and were resisted and beaten off by Borland,
the United States minister, and which was
the commencement of the late difficulties
there. It presents a dark picture.
Of the deliberate
pilot, by Capt. Smith, there can be no doubt.

The boat went on back up the river for
about half an hour, when she turned round
and ran right down, bows into the broadside:

" Take care, captain, you break my bungo."
He was about to repeat the same expression,
and had got out the word " cuidado," when
a ball entered the nipple of the left breast.
