AN iNosNtova BIIHITI nr rn PALace.?Phelps's
Ohio Combination Beehive is
among the moet ingenious articles on exhibition
in the American department. It is situated in
the gallery near the plows, and is so arranged at
one of the windows that the bees, with which it
swarms, have egress from it, not of course into
the building, but outside of it; there you can see
them at work in the manufacture, with that untiring
industry of which they hasp been so appropriately
chosen as the emblem. Here one is engaged
in smoothing down the interior of the cells,
while others are employed in constructing new
cells. The hire is formed of wood and glass, and
is like all really useful contrivances, very simple.
It consists of a number ot ooxes, ana can m made
to contain four or five familiea of bees. The boxes
are all alike, and may be changed to any part of
the case without difficulty. An aperture is out in
the front of each box for the ingress and egress of
the bees; a spout, or alighting-board, is attached
to the front of the hive of mfficient length to reach
through weather-boarding when set in a building.
The bottom is attached to the front of the
hive by butts, and may be let down at any time
without disturbing or moving the boxes, as they
stand upon strips nailed to the case at the bottom,
against which the bottom shuts and forms a tight
joint. The bottom, when closed, is kept in place
by a button at each end. There are ventilating
openings through the bottom three inches in diameter,
covered on the under side with perforated tin
doors, tliat may be opened and closed at pleasure.
The moth trap consists of a strip of board grooved
or rabbeted at the edges, to form a harbor for the
moths on the bottom of the hive; this slide or trap
is covered with a tin case, with openings at its
lower edge corresponding with the grooves in the
trap; the case prevents tne bees from fastening it
to the floor, and admits of its being withdrawn
and returned without disturbing the bees.
Death in the Jail?A Sad Hitlory.?A man,
aged probably about 30, named Wra. S. L. Hussey,
died in the jail last night of delirium tremens,
having been committed yesterday at his own reJuest
for drunkenness. He was formerly from
altimore, where he graduated in 1846 at a medical
institute, and is connected with highly-respectable
families. A love of liquor prevented Him
from becoming established in his profession; and
soon after, falling in with a boon companion, who
was a lamp-maker, he took up that trade, working
at it in Philadelphia, and subsequently in this
city for Eagles &. Lockwood. Ho was intelligent
and capable, an excellont, designer and draughtsman,
but has gradually descended through the various
stages of degradation, produced by liquor,
till he met his untimely fate.

Baltimore, August 16, 1853.
There has bean a decided change in the atmosphere
for the better to-day, the sun having been
enveloped in a cloud during the morniqg, much to
the gratification of all concerned. fYoin New
York we also have tidings of more moderate weather,
with the accompaniment of a storm of rain.
There have been one hundred and fifty-seven
deaths in Baltimore during the past week, being
an unusual large number, even for the summer {
solstice. Cholera infantum, consumption, and
tiio atrok.es ol the nun are doing their work,
with us.
A jealous husband, named Duncan, yesterday
followed a man named Campbell, who was walking
with his wife. He finally, on reaching the
lower part of Baltimore street, picked up a brick,
which he hurled at them; but it missed its mark,
and struck a small negro child on the head, causing
its death in a few moments. The offender
was arrested and committed to jail.
The use of poisoned sausages and meat in killing
dogs, as adopted by our corporation, has resulted
seriously in several instances to children;
and on Sunday a professional rag-picker picked
up one of these poisoned morsels, and oat it,
causing almost instant death.

Arrival of the America?Later from
Halifax, August 16.?The steamer America
arrived here to-day.
The Eastern question is nearly decided one
way or the other. It is generally considered Icsh
satisfactory. The Czar's final answer cannot bo
known until the 12th.
The conference at Vienna, in pursuance of these
arrangements, will conclude a treaty protecting
Turkey in all time to come. If the Czar refuses
the ultimatum, or evades a reply, the allied fleets
will outer the fiosphorus, ana further active measures
will be taken to maintain the integrity of
Turkey. The conduct of the Russian generals in
the principalities indicates an intention to maintain
permanent possession. Russia shows no
signs of retraction.
it is stated that Austria not only will demand reparation
from the United States for the Smyrna affair,
but that Turkey shall immediately procure
the extradition of Kossta.
Petersburgh letters say that when the Czar
heard of the Kossta affair ho advised Austria to
do any thing rather than give the United States
pretence for interfering in the affairs of Europe.

Another ministerial crisis was feared at Constantinople.
There was a rumor in Vienna of a secrot treaty
between the United States and the Porte, and the
probable cession of Marmizzen. Three American
frigates were said to be in the Bosphorus.
Alarming Increase of the Fever.
New Orleans. Aucrust 15.?The fever is
alarmingly on the increase. The Board of Health
reports two hundred, and thirty-two deaths during
the past twenty-four hours, ending at noon on the
15th. The distress is indescribable. People are
deserting the city; not enough persons scarcely
left in the city to bury the dead. Some whole
families have been carried off.
Tennessee Election.
Louisville, August 15.?The latest advices
from Tennessee prove the election of Johnson,
the Democratic candidate for Governor, by a majority
of about 2,000. The Congressional delegation
will stand five Democrats to five Whigs. In
the Memphis district the latest returns show the
election of Stanton, the Democratic candidate, by
six majority.

The Gardiner Cases.?In the criminal court i
yesterday Mr. Femsall said that, according to a '
statement in the newspapers, the Government j
commission had returned from Mexico, (whithef ,
it was despatched to obtain testimony in the Gardiner
eases pending,) and therefore he asked the ]
court to fix a day for the trial, presuming that ten 1
days from this time would be sufficient for sum- '
moning the witnesses in the United States. \
Mr. Carlisle had nothing to add to what he i
had heretofore said. It was now for the court to
say whether it would drive the defence to procure
new counsel, or not. He and his colleague (Mr.
Bradley) have business in the circuit court, which (
has adionrned for their convenience until the first
Monday of September, and they could not, with-_
out utter ruin and disgrace, abandon these cases. (
Mr. Fendall remarked that he never was a
party to any such arrangement, and he had heard ,
with some surprise, several days ago, that he was.
Mr. Carlisle was of the opinion that the Dis- ^
trict Attorney concurred in that arrangement.
He asked whether it was just and reasonable, un- (
der the circumstances, to force the trial at this
time, and suggested whether it was not unprecedented
to drive the defendant to procure new*
counsel. The District Attorney, at the end of
the June term, said that he read in the newspapers
that the commission has returned, and that
he does not doubt the truth of the statement.
The only reason for this is Paddy's reason. He
saw it in print, and therefore it must be true.
Mr. Fendall remarked that he did pot know a
word of what the commission had brought with it.
He could hardly suppose that the newspapers had
committed so gross a blunder as to say that the
commission had returned if it had not. He would
commence the trial on the supposition that the
commission has returned, and run the risk.
Mri May (of counsel for the prosecution) said
that if any arrangement had been entered into for
the accommodation of the gentlemen on the other
side in the circuit court, he should have been
privy to it. They had never supposed that the
commission would be absent beyond the fifteenth
of July, and therefore could not have been favorable
to a postponement.
Mr. Carlisle. It would bo utterly ridiculous
to take up the case at tliiB time.
Mr. May said he should consider it to be his
duty to press a trial at an early day, and to summon
the witnesses.
The Court said it was not practicable to fix a
day to suit all parties. The counsel ught to arrange
this among themselves.
Mr. Carlisle. We can't do anything with
that on our side.
Mr. May. The expenses are enormous, and
the Government can't keep its witnesses.
The Court said that the circuit court adjourned
011 the thirtieth May to meet on the first Monday
of September, on the express ground that the
counsel for the defendants might attend to the
Gardiner casos during the summer. They cannot
again ask that court to adjourn for them, and
other counsel cannot be substituted for them. The
court was ready to sit lioro at any time between
now and the Pccombcr term for the trial of those
Mr. Fendall suggested that the first of INfcivemher
bo fixod for that purpose.
Mr. Carlisle said tliat ho and his associate
(Mr. Bradley) were of opinion that the cases
could not be taken up before the December tenn,
as the circuit court, after the adjourned term to ,
the first Monday of September, will again be in
session on tho third Monday of October.
The subject was disposed of for the present, by
fixing tho first day of the December term of the
criminal court as tho poriod for taking up tho
long-ponding Gardiner cases.
Criminal Court.?Yesterday a young man
named John McCaffrey was arraigned on the
charge of assault and battery with intent to kill

of July last, at a lime-kiln near Van Ness's. Mr.
Fendall for the United States, and Mr. M. Thompson
for the prisoner.
The first witness for the prosecution was an
Irishman, who said the circumstance occurred at
3 o'clock in the afternoon. In*giving his evidence,
such was the rapidity of his utterance and
the thickness of his tongue, that he was required
to repeat much of his language, and even then his
statement was not clearly understood.
Mr. Thompson. Indeed, I can't tell what you're
saying. How's that? [Leaning over the desk.]
The witness proceeded with his narrative, faster
than ever, occasioning some laughter.
The Court. I can't understand what you say.
A Juror. Speak slower. One word at a time.
Mr. Fendall. You will have to make short
sentences, and then stop awhile.
The witness (to Mr. Fendall.) I put my head
out and saw him point the gun.
A Juror. Speak this way.
The witness was proceeding with his statement,
when ho was again interrupted by a question,
"What did you see?" "And didn't I tell ye,"
responded the witness impatiently, and continued:
"I saw him cock his gun, and heard a gun go off."
The Court. Did you hear the gun go off?
The witness. I did.
The Court. What gun? Did you see the
smoke ?
The witness. I did not. I saw the report.
[Laughter.] He then related how the white man
and the negro fought, and described the particulars
of tho battle, ono of the incidents of which
was, that after the latter was shot he seized the
gun, and in the struggle the stock separated from
the barrel; tho negro retaining the last-named
part of the firearm, with which he struck his antagonist.
The white man then retreated, while
the black threw stones at him, which attack was
similarly returned.
Another witness, who spoke more intelligibly,
testified that McCaftrcy, after leaving the limekiln,
came down to the captain of a boat lying in
tho canal nnd askod him for powder and shot,
saying that Green's dog tried to bite him. He
nftorwards discovered that the irun had a load in
it. Witness followed him out of curiosity. Saw
him level the gun, and hoard the report.
The negro came into court, and, by request,
rolled up the shirt-sleeve of his left arm, to show
the scars which he received in the battle.
Colonel Thompson, the counsel for the prisoner,
called the attention of the jury to the fact that
some of the scratches were one way and some another.
If he had been struck by the load of
the gun the marks would all be in the same direction.
"Shot!" lie exclaimed, "the idea is preposterous!"
Mr. Fknuali.. I want the jury to sec the scars.
Mr. Thompson. I'm much obligod to you for
that. [To the witness.] You heard of mad
dogs. There was one killed up there the other
Mr. Fendall. You saw no dog?
The witness. I did not.
A third witness testified that McCaffrey, when
ho camo to the boat, said ho wanted a gun to kill
a dog; and, as he was coming back from the kiln,
thore was "adead negro, sure."
Mr. Thompson. Did you seo a dead negro?
The witness. I did not.
Mr. Thompson (the evidence for the prosecution
having been closed) addressed the jury,
expressing nis great surprise that Robert Leo was
not in the dock instead of John McCaffrey, as it
was shown he had beaten the white man and then
threw stones at him, There vu no proof that
McCaffrey fired the fun; ff wan juat as profabe
Jiit the guu exploded as the negro sought le
arrest it, taking hold of the muzsle, from the
utnds of the prisoner. The appearance of the
Around* justified this hypothesis. Even if McCaffrey
aiiot at the negro, he was justifiable under the
As the wituoases for tlie defenoe could not be
procured yesterday, Mr. Thompson proposed to
idjourn the case until to-day; but he subaeluently
acquiesced in a proposition made by tlie
District Attorney that he (Mr. Fendall) would
forego a closing speech if Mr. Thompson would
nlbmit the case at once.
The jury retired, but had not agreed upon a
verdict up to the adjournment of tlie court.
Effects of the Heat.?Henson Pulling died
in Monday night, having been attacked between
sloven and twelve o'clock in the morning.
William Carden ia recovering from the Bevere
affects of the sun upon him.
At the Capitol, yesterday afternoon, one of the
workmen engaged in raising the derric for elevating
Greenough's group of statuary, suddenly
fell in a fit, causing a general sensation among
the spectators. He was, however, eventually restored.
We learn from the Baltimore Clipper of this
morning that about twelve o'clock yesterday, Mr.
C. Letmate, a watchmaker, of this city, residing
on 7th street, suddenly fell at the corner of Light
and Pratt streets, and died in the course of an hour.
He had arrived in that city in the morning, with
the intention of returning in the afternoon. He
leaves a wife and three children. The verdict of
the jury was that he died from apoplexy, superinduced
by extreme heat.
Gu8tavus Caldwell, of Baltimore, died on the
other side of the Anacostia bridge on Sunday last
front a similar cause.
We have heard of several prostrations from the
effects of the sun, but not terminating fatally.
"Preventive of Mosquito Bitf.s."?Thomas
P. Hereford, M. D., has been induced to "offer,
through the medium of the Evening Star, a remedy"
which, he says, "though simple, is nevertheless
very efficacious in its repelling powers towards
this troublesome little pest." His remedy
is to "wash the face, head, and hands, or any
other parts exposed to the bites of this miserable
intruder, in a strong or saturated solution of gum
camphor in alcohol, and repeat it from timo to
time, if necessary, through the niglU." We must
confess that we do not know which is the more
disagreeable?slapping occasionally at a mosqui
to, or getting up during the night to anoint one s
self! A friend suggests another remedy, which
wo publish for the beneiit of humanity, namely :
that the body lie enclosed in a loose gauze sack
and the hands covered with gloves; the face and
neck to be washed in a solution of molasses and
water, that the-insect when he approaches may
stick fast, so as to bo caught, instead of sticking
his bill into his victim, and then hastening away
to sharpen it for another lunge !
Funeral Parade.?The Washington Light
Infantry, yesterday afternoon, followed to the
tomb Mr. J. F. Mitchell, a deceased member of
the corps. He was much esteemed for his manly
virtues, and leaves a wife and one child.
Injur? to the Capitol Extension.?In consequence
of the fall of a small derric, to be made
use of in raising the large one for the erection of
Groenough's group of statuary, much damage
was done to a highly-finished window cap and
casing of the north wing of the Extension, rendering
it necessary to substitute others.

charged with committing an assault upon

Untied (Haiti. It doe* not propose to Mlbl ergon
of ?J department of the Government, except in
so for as an independent maintenance of the doctrine#
of that party may repreeent ite opinione and
ezpreea ita view*.
It will not be ambitious to commend iteolf to the
people by a blind flattery of their ruler*. Jt will
seek public support by the bold avowal of tfcssentimenta
which are common to tbe genuine Democracy
of the Union, end by the condemnation of
aU each ae may conflict with them, from whatever
quarter they may come. It nflll eeek to In
(end it will endeavor to deaerre tba title) the organ
of the Democratic party of the United State*.
The SenUnel will maintain* an a fundamental
truth of that great party, that the States formed
the Dnion between them by the ratification of the
Conatitution aa a compact; by which also they
created the Federal Government, and delngnted to
it, ae their common agent, the powers exprasuly
specified in it, with an explicit reservation of nil
others to (be States, or to their aeoarate governments.
The exercise of any powers beyond those
thus delegated is therefore an usurpation of the
reserved authority of the States by the agent of
their own creation.
The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union
upon the basis of the rights of tbe States?under
the Constitution?and thus by sedulously guarding
tbe latter it will the more effectually strengthen
and perpetuate tbe former.
With regard to the exerciae of the powers of the
Federal Government, (be Sentinel will take aa the
principles of its action that Congress shall exercise
no power which has not bean delegated by the
Conatitution, according to a strict and fair interpretation
of ita language and spirit; and that it
shall not seek to attain indirectly an object through
the exercise of constitutional power, for the direct
attainment of which it has no delegation qf power.
lo other words, ail powers exercised must be clearly
granted, and all granted powers must be used
for no purpose except such as is clearly intended
by tbe Constitution.
In respect to the internal administration of tbe
Government the Sentinel will sustain the settled
policy of the Democratic party. It will labor to
inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic internal
policy?that this Government will best promote
the freedom end prosperity of tbe people of
the States by being less ambitious to exercise power
aud more anxious to preserve liberty; and by
leaving to the individual States the management
of all tbeir domestic concerns?while it contents
itself with guarding the Confederacy from exter
I1UJ viuieii(/6) nnu uircuuug (lie iui?igu pvuv^ wi
tbe country to the promotion of tbecommon intereat*
and defence of the common rights and honor
of the States composing- it.
Tbe Sentinel wiiJ advocate such a progressive
foreign policy as will suit itself to tbe exigencies
and correspond with the expanding interests of
tbe country. That policy should he energetic and
decided; but should temper firmness with liberali
ty, and make its highest ends consist with the
strictest t/inciplea of justice. The real interests
of tbe country upon each occasion demanding attention
will be its guide in tbe course the Sentinel
will pursue.
Tbe national policy of the world in thia age is
essentially aggressive. In tbe growing sense of
weakness of some of tbe nations of tbe Old World
and tbe ambitious restlessness of others, a common
motive to colonial extension baa developed itself.
Our settled determination to repel interference
from abroad with our own domestic concerns will
prompt us to avoid it in the affairs of other coun
tries, unlett by their foreign or colonial policy our
peace should be threatened, our security endangered,
or our interests Invaded. For when tbe
selfish interests of other nations prompt a foreign
or colonial policy which infringes upon our rights
and places in the pathway of our commerce a dangerous
and unfriendly rival, such a policy must be
resisted by remonstrance, and if need be'by war.
Our foreign policy should indeed be defensive;
but to be properly de/eneive it muit sometimes be
apparently aggreteioe. Our Administration should
be vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world
is full of important movements, commercial and
political, deeply concerning American trade and
American power. It is time we had an American
foreign policy. We must have it. We cannot
avoid it if we would. We have larger interests
and a greater stake in the world and its destiny
than every other people. We occupy tbe best portion
of a continent, with no neighbors but a colony
and a worn out anarcbicar despotism. We
are the only people whose own land, without colonial
dependencies, ia washed by the two great
oceans of tbe world. Our agricultural productions
are more varied and more eeeenlial to civilised
life and to human progress?our mineral and
manufacturing resources more vast?our facilities
and capacity for internal and foreign commerce
more extended than those of any other people living
under one government. A continent to a great
extent unexplored and exhauatleaa in ite yet hidden
wealth ia at our feet. European trade aeeka
the great East through avenues which are at our
doors, or must be made through our own limiie.
Europe, Asia, Africa, and the isles of the sea, lying
all around us, look to us as the rising power, 1
through the agency of whose example, and ever
widening ana extending, though peaceful influences,
the blessings of liberty, civilisation, and religion,
are. destined to triumph over tbe barbarism
and superstition of tbe millions of the world. And
hall such a people refuse to lay bold upon tbeir
deetiny and act npon the high mission to which it
ia called? A mission so tull of hope, though so
laden with responsibility, which, if properly di1
reeled, must make our Confederacy the harbinger
of peace to the world aa well as the peaceful arbi1
ter of ite destiny.
The Sentinel will, therefore, advocate a bold ana
ear net t foreign policy, such aa the condition of the
country demand*, but it will advocate It under the
flag of theeouniry?nowhere elae. Its foreign policy
muit be consistent with the spotless honor and
unimpeachable good faith of the country. To be
respectable at home and abroad, and to tie great in
the eyes of the world, it must ask for nothing but
what is right and submit to nothing that is wrong.
It must be liberal and magnanimous to the rights
of others, and firm and immovable in insisting on
its own. It must, in fine, be true to its own interests,
rights, and honor?it cannot then be false to
those o? other nations.
Such, then, is the chart by which we shall be
guided. Independent and free, we shall endeavor
to be honest and truthful. The true friends o
Democratic principles, we shall cordially support
and defend. Itseneinies in the field or in amtmeh
we shall oppose, and on all proper occasions denounce.
To our future brethren of the pre*" we extend
the hand of friendly greeting. The Sentinel is the
rival of no press of its own party?the personal
enemy of none of the other.
The present Democratic Administration has our
best wishes for its success iu the establishment of
the great principles upon which it came into powI
cr; and in its honest labors to attain such an end
ltwill find the Sentinel its friend and coadjutor.
