Supposed Fragments of the ill-fate"
Steamship President. The Banffshire
(Scotch) Journal, gives the following de
scriptions ofpiocesof the wreck of a large
vessel supposed to bo the President washed
ashore on the coast of Scotland. "The
wreck," says that Journal, "seems to have
formed a part of a largo steam vesHel, and
from its appearance it has been along time
In the water. The piece got on shore is n
bout twenty-five feet square, and cotitains
17 timbers. These timbers measure nt the
floor-heads 13 inchos by 12 inches. There
are three pieces of largchanging iron knees,
two of which are 7 feet in length, the other 5
feet; and two iron beds supposed to be for
the boilers, each bed 18 feet long, the knees
at the thickest part being four inches
by two inches. On one of the beds
the initials"L. W." are stamped. The floor
heads are bolted with iron bolts, and the
butt-ends with composition balls, above 8
inches. The wreck has been inspected by
seamen and shipbuilders, who unite in declar
ing it to be the wreck of some large steamer
this fact is said to bo ascertained almost
beyond a doubt. In these circumstances it
has been suggested that the wreck now ly
ing on our coast may possibly be a portion of
the ill-fated British steamer President."

war; and let American history blush for tho
fact Rome gave a triumph to tho -victorious
citizen England, for less than half the duty
Scott performed, has made a Duke. Scott
was recalled by the Administration. Ho
bowed to the edict, returned homo with but
one faithful servant, (and he was an Irish
man,) and the first place he entered was the
little village church, where, forgetting all his
victories, he fervently returned thanks to the
Divine Creator for his bounties. I sny, Scott
has been most unjustly treated; he w as ar

Whig Victory in New Orleans. The j
Whigs havo carried the Crescent city by the j
unprecedented majority of thirteen'humlred
votes! The Bee thus chroniclesuha result:.
A Tall Whig Victoky. A rainy day,
ahscencd of ull intense exciu ineiit, &ui a
thin vote, characterized yesterday's election
for members of the Convention. As tho con
tent was for honor and responsibility, and
not for profit, and as consequently no mon
ey wan expended, nor extraordinary induce
ments offered to bring up the unterified, the
attendance at the polls composod protty
much the stable and staid citizens of New
Orleans. As a matter of course, under tliepe
circumstances, tho city has gone Whig all
over. We hardly know of any Democrats
re-clcctcd There is only one out of the twen
ty four who has escaped the general route, but
the present aspect of the returns barely jus
tifies such a conclusion. The Whig Sgnuto
rial ticket goes in by an overwhelming vote.
Of the Reprer ent'itiv;- delegates, the Whigs
have chosen all (eleven; in the First district
all (eight) in the Second, and fourout. of the
five in the Third. This is about as clean a
sweep of Locofucoism as wc desire to make.

Protest of Db. Towosasd. Dr

member of Congress from the 21st. district
of this State, has taken ground against the
Democratic Platform, though it yet remains
to be seen whether he will not swallow the
candidates after sweetening them with a
protest against their principles. On the
coming upof tho Deficiency Appropriation
bill, in Committee of the Whole on Wednes
day, the Dr. is reported to havo held fourth
as follows:

against the interpolation into the Democrat

party, if either, was the natural ally of sla
