TELEGRAPHIC, j Three days later from Vera C rux. DEATH OF OR. HAWKINS. NOTHING OFFICIAL FROM GEN. "i SCOTT. RUMORS OF PF.ACE. I GEJVERAL PIERCE AT JALAP A 30th July. Out of Provision* Richmond, August 21, 45 min. past 7 o'clock, a. m. The New Orleans mail of the 14th iust. is just in. The steamer Orleans arrived at that city on that day wiln dates from Vera Cruz to the 7th inat. ' There was no official intelligence from Gen. Scott up to that date. The city of Vera Cruz was full of rumors, as usual, from Scott's column. One was, that commissioners to treat lor peace had been, appointed ; but no reliauce was placed upon it. Intelligence had been received that General Pierce reached Jalapa on the 26th of July with his column, and that they were out of provis ions. Dr. Hawkins, ol Baltimore, died at Tampico of the yellow lever, on the Cth instant. CCj~ We inviie the attention of our readers to the advertisement of G. W. Wheeler, in another part of our paper. Mr, Wheeler is one of our most skilful | Mechanics, and those who are in want of good furniture would do well to give him a call. Alabama.?Our hopes for Davis were as ' the dew-drops on the leaf. The sun rose, and 1 they were not. Chapman beats Davis by a 1 majority of 6,909; a falling off from the Polk vote of near 6,000, but quite enough to make Chapman Governor I The Democrats have 29 majority on joint ballot, to leave Mr. Baghy at home and to send Mr. King to his old seat again; which will surely be the case, unless Mr. Bagby will beg very hard indeed! From Texas.?We have Texas intelligence up to the 6;h instant. The cotton crops were magnificent, and the picking at the rate of 200 pounds to the hand, was going on rapidly from Caney to Egypt. Get the last map of the Lone Star, and you II find these places. No other item worth iranspriniing. Affray and Death.?On the 12th inst., in New Orleans, Major Owan Byrd attacked a Mr. Edwards, in the street, with a cane. A regular affray ensued, in which Byrd was killed by sundry pistol bulls being shot into hitn by the hand of Edwards. He that taketh the sword, &c. The Nashville Orthopolitan of the I3lh inst., i in an able article upon the subject of the Pre sidancy, comes to the conclusion that General Taylor will be our next President, come what ' may. We have yet to hear the first opinion to the contrary. On the IStli instant, while at Cape May, Mr. Clay came near being killed. lie had riddpn oql in a four-horse coach, and on his return, the horses became restive nrfd ran the carriage against a fence. At this juncture he caught the young lady who wns with him in 1 his arm!), anil leaped out of the carriage un- 1 hurt. The next moment lie might have been 1 dashed to piece?. 1 The yellow lever is scourging New Orleans. On the 12th, forty deaths from it were recorded. It spares no age or sex, anil is more falsi I ' eveivthan the fever of 1837. i Genernl Taylor's Olinion letter has set the ' Democrats of New Orleans in a perfect fury 1 of rage. They conslroe it to mean that he is t a hot Whig; and the New Orleans Courier l says that it would rather go for a disunionist i than the old Hero, if he be u Whig. Jupiter? | how it nicks 'em ! A correspondent inquires why we published ' the story of Peter Poole? We printed it as a bit of curious intelligence, believing there was t nothing go very improbable in an old negro I slave, whose slavery was only in name, pre- | ferring .to go hark 10 If if "Id stamping ground, | to remaining wherp he had no sympathies. , A Pennsylvania Captain, who had been dis- 1 charged by General Scott for inability occa gioned by aickneas, recently applied to the 1 President to be reinstated. The Secretary of 1 War wrote to him that our commanding Gen prsls in the field has the right to discharge volunteer ojEcers fnr sickness-sake, but thai they cannot be put back again. I The Charleston Courier says, very truly, that the only mode of benefiting the negro race t is, to colonize Africa with our negroes. I New cotton was' received at New Orleans on ^ the 12th instant. i A desperate fellow by the name of Ernest, t killed a companion, in cold blood, on last Sun- , day. Cincinnati, M'- Bruce of Virginia, is out in an address ] upon negro slavery, and he recommends that the ( hate shall rid ilsslf of the institution as fast aa poa* itbls, by removing the alavoa to the South in whole ami lies.

Hrhere is a tail to this tale. ____ , Foreign Intelligence. Italy.?According to accounts which seem ruslworthy, Rome has been spared a revival ?f the Sicilian Vespets. For someduys there were rumors ot a conspiracy to restore the old lysleut by a coup dt main. So absur-l, how ver, did the whole affair (teem, that the rttnora which first reached London through the French papers yrece not credited ; but the re eipl of direct news leaves no cause lor, dentin hat some outrage was contemplated. On the j 7th instant there was to be a grand fete in ! oinriietnoralion of the amnesty, and a display d' fireworks in the Piazza de Popolo. Persons vere to be distributed among the crowd, with optruriions to get up a quarrel, as a justifies ion for military interference; disaffected pnr ions of the regiments being then employed to nuke a general onslaught. The fugitive* weie o be waylaid in the back streets, and killed, by iccomplicea armed with stilettoes. The preence lor the allaek was lo be ill treatment of he soldiers by the populace; and the Bangui lary result was lo be held up as the natural consequence ol concessions to a people not ipe for freedom. In this way the tumult was expected to produce the desired reaction iu the >roceedings of Government. This notable scheme got wind in the club of he Circolo Romano. Prince Salviati, at the lead of a deputation from the club, communicated the matter to the Pope, who took iinmfliate measures for the public sulety. The citzens were armed, and orders were given to irrest the ringleaders. In the midst of the lusde, on the lGth, Cardinal Ferretti opporunely arrived to assume the utfice of Secretary if Slate. His Brat official act was to banish Consignor Grasselini, the Governor of Rome; vho was allowed only twenty-fours to quit the city. The conspiracy is fathered upon the >arty beaded by Uardmal Uamtiruscbtni ; and >n its discovery the following placard was posted about, giving a list of the actors : NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC. "Public entertainment, contrived by his Emnence Lambruschini, and Col. Nardoni, left to ie executed in the form of a popular tragedy, >y the following performers. Infavunu Dram. Ptrs. Colonel Preddi Captain Antony Mozzarelli Lieutenant Giannuzzi Lieutenant San Giorgi Lieutenant Benvenutt Minardi the spy Vencenzo Monni, called Tullo Bozzi Antony Bartoli Three sobs of Galanti the spy Pontini the home jockey Fioravanti called Pataccha." Colonel Freddi has escaped, but Captain Wozzarelli, Lieutenant San Giurgi,and Signor dartoli, have been arrested. Freddi was colonel of carabiniers, a body of 9,000 mounted police; upon whom the people ooked with distrust. The carabiniers as a holy have indignantly disclaimed any participa-' ion in the conspiracy) and they have put forth in address to the Roman people, laying the ilatne on a few wretches belonging to the :orps. Occurrences at Ferrara, on the 17th instant, would seem to confirm the belief that the Aits riun uoverninent nau some participation in hp Roman conspiracy. On that day, two Austrian battalions, of 800 men each, followed oy four pieces of'arlitlery with lighted matchis, entered the city. They, marched with oaded muskets and fixed bayonets, wearing ?reen boughs in their caps. Their object teemed to be to provoke disorder by insulting lentonstraiions. They coplinueti in military occupation of the place. It was believed that Cardinal Gizzi wuuld relain the Ministry of foreign Affairs; Cardinal Ferretti becoming Minister of the Interior. Prince Rospigliosi ;s made commander in ihief of the National Guard of Rome. Prince Drsini is confirmed as Senator. Turkey.? Conitanlinoplr, July 17.? The compaign in Kurdistan has ut last been opened in the most glorious style. An extraordinary express arrived at thn Porte on the 19th, with the important intelligence of i complete victory having been gained at Ctrgul over the insurgents, in which more man iswu ivurus were leu uii uie uhiu 01 battle. The details ore to the effect that Enmer | Pacha, commanding the right wing of the I'urkish corps d'armee, preceded the main nail) body, and on the 15th of J tine entered the Hakary mountains. At first he met with jreat opposition from the insurgents, and this caused him to move in a very cautious nauner. Qn the Ifth, two hoijrs before midnight, the Turks were attacked, and fought with great valor, much to their dis idvantage, till the dawn of day, when rushing forward, they attacked the enemy most rigorously and quickly put thein to fight, with a loss of 1200. The loss of the Turks is variously estimated at from 500 to 800 ItiJJed and wounded. Eumer Pacha on the ltyih, after a forced march, arrived before Daghderin, the stronghold of Bedr Khan Bey, and, agreeably to instructions from the Porte, twice aummo and (he Kurks to surrender, on a promise }f mercy ;but the latter delernoiped to lipin to no terma, and to try the weight of their awn wild valoragainat the discipline of the rnrks. After a fight of 12 hours, in which prodigies of heroism were displayed, the castle was evacuated by Bedr j^han Bey, who made good his retreat to the mountain fastnesses of Evrak. On the other hand it appears that the main body of tj)e tnrkiah army, under the command of Osraan Pacha, had entered the Hakary mountains at Kalhandire, with 12,000 men and 19 pieces of light artillery, and that on the 14th of June, while crossing the BeubUn, he met strong body of Kurds, led by Khan Mahmoud of yan; an engagement took place, and the enemy was dig pered, leaving 4UU on ine held ot name; iheif himself (fed, and had joined Bedr Kh?h Bey at Evrek.

In an August!

Soon altt the horse began to eat she commenced slobhe ing abundantly. Being quite out of patience we set our wits to work to ascertain the caus Some told us it was white cluver, some said was lobelia. On making strict exaininatio we found that the last load put into the bai had much lobelia, and but little white clov in it. As nn experiment, we for several da] in succession, previous to fppding, werp car ful to cull the hay by handfuls, and pick 01 the lobelia. From this moment the slobbprit ceased. On giving the hay again witboi picking it over, ihe salivation began again. S lhat we are satisfied that lobelia is ihe cause i slobbering in horses. Can any onp tell us win will cure this slobbering, without (lie pains i separating (lie lobelia from the hay." Agriculiure is the nursery of*patriotism. A wise government will not be slow in I'o tering lite agricultural interests. Let every farmer who lias a son to edurat believe ami remember, thnt science lays tl Inundation of everything valuable in ogricu lure. Science must combine yvit|t practice to mult a good farmer. 'l'he opposition against book farming res ou the shoulders of i\vo monsters, ignorant and prejudiee. If you separate science from agricullurt you rub a nation of its principal jewel. Agriculture, aided hy science, will make little nation a great one. All the energy of the hero, and all the sc ence of the philosopher, may find scope in th cultivation of one farm.

John P. Bigelow, at the entertainment given on board the Hibernia to Mri0 Secretary Walker, in regard to Ethan Allen, r teminds us of another. While he was in re England, the English ministry tried various j means to shake his stem republican principles, and win him, if possible, over to the side of the Mother Country. At length, Lord North, [ll we believe it was, offered hint, as a bribe, one ;1] half of New Hampshire. Ethan listened ats tenlively, and replied, that the offer reminded J hitn strongly of au ancient scene of temptation, where a less important personage tempted a more imporlHUt personage, by offering hitn the world, and all its possessions, if he would but j fall down and worship him. " And," added ls Ethan, fixing his keen eye on fiord North, n "would you believe i(, the d d rtucal didn't ' own a square foot of the. territory." r Mexican Documents.?The New Orleans r Picayune of the 13th inst. continues the pubp? licalion of sundry important Mexican documents, among which is a circular of the Min n tster of Foreign Affairs, Pacheco, in the early m part of July. This circular proclaims war lo er the knife, until " a glorious peace is conqjerpS ed." The next document is n letter.from Lord u) Palmerslon to the Mexican Minister in London, tg informing liirn that the British Minister in J" Mexico will litllow the Mexican Government, j,! go where it will; which Pacheco interprets to m menu, that the British Government will not of recognize any revolutionary or other govern ment set up by the power of our arms I The whole arp interesting, as conveying a true idea s. of Mexican teeling.
