Arrival of Another Detachment of
Factory Girls. Among tbe passen
gers by the ship Star of Empire,
which nrrived at this port on Wednes
day, from Liverpool, were about sixty
Scotch girls, engaged to work in the
factories here. They were mostly
young, neatly dressed, and 6ome of
them are quite good looking. They
were forwarded to Ilolyoke, their
place of destination, last evening, via
the Boston and Worcester railroad.

The North era Know Nothings.
We are told at timis th.it the
Northern Know Nothings arc becom-
ing national. The convention of the
party at Cincinnati, composed of del
egates from eleven States, adopted
th fullowing resolution by a vote of
90 to 11 elector d votes: : ,
''That the repeal of tin Missouri
Compromise was an infraction of the
plight;d f.-.ith of the nation, and that
it should b3 rtored; and if efforts to
that end should f dl, Congress should
refuse to admit into the Union any
State tolerating slavery, which shall
J be formed out of any portion of the
territory from which that institution
wa3 excluded by that Compromise."
This resolution was adopted as ths
voice of the Know Nothings at tho
North.
The minority were for going
even farther srrainst slavery than this
does.' "What docs this resolution1 Greece.'..' ...'. 7. "7.7.7.7

An Important Bill.
Mr. John A. Jones, of this county,
haa introduced an important bill in re
lation to tha "faithful execution of
the fugitive slave law" by the North
era States. It is entitled, "A bill to
be entitled an act to provide for gar
nishment in certain cases, and for oth
er purposes:" and it provides that any
citizen of this State, who has lost or
may lose a slave by his escape or ab
duction to another State, and who has
made an ineffectual demand upon the
Governor of said State for his return,
shall have remedy by 'garnishment
against any citizen of this State, or
any county, who may be indehted to
a citizen or corporation of the State
refusing or neglecting to surrender the
fugitive. The bill contains stringent
provisions to prevent the garnishee's
evading the law; and it provides that
his payment of the amount due to
the garnishor shall operate his re
lease, to that amount, of his indebted
ness to the, citizens or corporation of i
the State so refusing to carry out the
fugitive slave law. Columbus (ua.)

Western Mjvcmvit of the British
Fleet. The Washington correspond
ent of th i New York Courier aud En
quirer gives what he considers a nat
ural and obvious explanation of the
movement of the British squadron:
"It is that a secret tripartite ex
ists between Iranc?,- England and
Spain, for the defence of Cuba, and
1 that Spain has insisted upon the dis
patch of his fleet, as a proof of the
sincerity of her Allies, and a3 a con
dition, precedent to her raising an!
auxiliary army to aid them in the
Eastern war. If it is the purpose of
the British Government to make a
demonstration in support of their
pretensions in Central America, se
rious work may be expected. Our
position is such that wa would be ob
liged in that case to support the filli
busters on both coasts against these
European invaders. Let but the
word be given by the government,

of the Litter, to repel th? arrogance of

foreijni intervention. One thousand
men are already organized in Califor-
nh to support Walker, and thousands!
more m all parts of the country are
eager to join Kinney the moment the
interdict of our Government, which
stamps his enterprise with illegality, is
removed. Tho Mosquito Protecto
rate is an obsolete idea, and so is the
notion of any sort of a European
Protectorate over Greytown and the
great line of communication between
the two ocoans."

A correspondent at New Braun-
fels. Texas, writes to the New Orleans
Picayune:
In the course of last week this
section of the State has had a fresh
visitation in the shape of grasshop
pers. They csme upon us suddenly,
full fledged and full grown, ready for
their work of destruction. The ele
ments, air, earth, and water are full of
them, and the way everything green
disappears before them is a caution to
soma bipeds I wot of. One week ago
we had the finest garden I- ever saw
at this season of the year, but now
okra, tomatoes, turnips, peas, beans,
beets, and even onions are gone, and
tbe spot where they were looks' as if:
a prairie fire had swept over it. If
you have ever seen bees when swarm
ing, you can have some faint idea of
the numbers of our new visitors. The
locusts of old could not have been
more abundant
The New York Journal of Com
merce proposes "a resubmission by
Congress of the conflicting claims of 1
deeder and Whitfield to the people
of Kansas." There are no "conflict
ing claims" whatever involved in the
case, for Reeder has no legal claims
at all. Whitfield was elected without
serious opposition at an election le
gaily called by the Territorial Legis
lature; while Reeder was chosen by
an unauthorized assemblage, having
no other authority than the call of a
parly meeting! For the Southern
Representatives to submit to Whit
field's rejection on that miserable sub
terfuge, would bo disgraceful in the
extreme. '
