Lotovoco Plaint* and Practick*.?The PostuioMier
General, a abort time aince, removed from
the office of poatinaater at Greensburg, in thia
' Stale, one Simon Drum, who had held it during a
period of forty yeara- The whole Loco loco parly
aeemed, for a abort lime, to be thrown into a elate
of aaphyxia by thia event, and then revived, to
experience and expreaa the proper feeling* at auch
a barbarous act of cruel44 proscription." No language
waa alrong enough to expreaa their indignation,
no term* aweet and lender enough to show
forth tlieir sympathy with the sufferer. Mr. Drum
might have aaid, aa Lord Byron said before him,
on the publication of hia first popular poem, that
44 he woke up one morning and found himself famous
and it seemed aa if all the Locofoco papers
of Pennsylvania would go into mourning, and the
politicians wear crape on the left urm for thirty
days, in testimony of grief for hia unhappy fate.
He had gained, to uppearunce, a vast political
power, or capital, for his sufferings had moved all
his political ramily in the State towards him. Even
the candidacy for the next governorship might not
be deemed beyond his reach ; but, with the modesty
of true worth, Mr. Drum contented himself, some
days ago, with asking from the Locofoco conven.
tion of Westmoreland county the very subordinate

honor was refused him ; hut still, being most anxious
to serve those who seemed to prize him so
, highly, he expressed his desire for the office of
\ register and recorder, but, th rough some unfortunate
combination of circumstances, it could not be
awarded him. The next step of the martyr was to
apply to his sympathizing friends for the* county
treusurership; but here again there were difficulties;
and, sinking still lower in his claims, in the most
obliging spirit, he condescended to offer to accept
the county commissionership. His name was
placed upon the list of applicants voted for, but, sad
to say, he scarcely obtained a vote, and another
man was nominated instead of the wronged, the
lamented, the 44 proscribed" Simon Drum.
This proceeding forms a keen satire on the recent
proceedings of the Locofocos in Mr. Drum's
case, and a very pretty commentary upon the general
system, now so much in favor among them, of
making a great outcry about proscription when
there is nothing to cry about.?Philadelphia North
N*w Brunswick, Ac.?We have St. John's papers
to the 21st. The fires in the woods still continue,
and much damage has been done throughout
the province, as well as farther to the northeast.
The New Brunswicker says:
44 We learn from the St. Andrew's papers, that
the fires have done much damage in the lumbering
districts of that county during the past week. The
saw-mill at Red Rock, on the Magagaudavic river,
belonging to Major Stannus, and about 40,000 feet
of deals belonging to Simeon Howe, were burned
last week. On Friday last, the mills at New river,
built by Stephen Munsen and Nelson Ash, with
v clapboard and lath machines, and a small mill
house, were destroyed by fire.
The dwelling house of Wm. Moore, at Saint
David, was also burnt, with all the furniture. The
flames made such rapid progress that Moore and

The great water wheel manufactured at the Union
Works, at Paterson, N. J., for Don Rubio, a capitalist
and manufacturer in Mexico, for his factory
at Queretaro, is to be taken apart this week to be
shipped. It measures 66 feet in diameter, or 200
feet in circumference, being the largest wheel in the
world, except one in Scotland. It nas 168 buckets,
6 feet long; and its weight, including the cog-wheels
for regulating the speed, is near 200 tons ! It will
make two entire revolutions per minute, and its
power is that of 100 horses. The N. Y. Commer
cial Advertiser, to whose visit to Paterson we are
indebted for these facts, thus speaks of Messrs.
Butler & Co.'a new paper mill:
The men of Egypt, of ancient Rome, or the
monks of old England, never erected buildings
better calculated to withstand the ravages of time
or the process of decay. The structure and its
"fixings" are a stupendous undertaking. The
walls are of immense thickness, of hard " Little
Pall" rock, apparently impervious to decay, carefully
wrought with chisel and hammer, and joined
by imperishable cement. The floors are or solid
blue slate, and even the vata, for the bleaching of
the material of which the paper is made, are slabs
of the same material, grooved into each other and
joined with cement.

We bave received the following letter giving an
account of a disastrous fire at the Iron Works of
t the Montour Iron Company at Danville :
Danville, June 24, 1849.
Editors of the Bulletin :
About 1 o'clock thia morning a fire broke out at
the Montour Company's new Furnace, No. 4, destroying
the engine and bridge houae, and doing
conaiderable damage to the new GO horse-power
engine. At the time of the fire there waa, fortunately,
not a breath of air atirring. If there had
been a,> jeze to the northeast, all the wood work
of th -tree large furnacea would have been entirely
eatroyed. Our fire engine company waa aoon
on the ground, and notwithatanding their npparatua ,
waa not in good order, they rendered efficient service,
and aaved a large amount of property from
destruction. It 1a understood that the loaa ia covered
by insurance, and it may not exceed in all from
G.OftO to 18,000- A number of men are busily en- ,
gaged to-day, (8unday,) and will, it is said, be able
to keep the furnacea in blast, by the aid of one of
. the large 90 horse engines which properly belong to
Furnace No. 3. This is the second time a fire has
occurred at those furnaces.?Pkda BulUtin.
Ths Fisst Battle in Canada roa Annexation!?A
Queliec paper, (the Canadian Independent,)
contains the following paragraph, which
shows that the war spirit prevails to a considerable
extent among the members of the city council at
Quebec :
On Friday last, at the ordinary session of the
city council, one of the members proposed a motion,
of the nature of which we are ignorant, but
which another member objected to, remarking, at
the same time, that in three months we would be
Americans Hereupon, the member who had
brought forward the motion crossed the hall, and
administered a tremendous blow to his opponent,
which prostrated him on the floor. The war spint
then communicated to others, and the eomhat
threatened to become general, when the mayor
called in the police, who put an end to the quarrel
and circled the andienre

For the 4(AV -/uiy, 1849,by a lady </ New York.
Rise ! to sing the deeds of glory
By our brave old fathers done;
Deeds that hallow song and story,
Tyrants crushed and freedom won : i
Haif! immortals hail! to ye
Who won your country's liberty.

Hi* pure fire within their veins;
Hi* dread power their cause maintaining?
Glorious ! 011 their native plains
They fought^-they died to win for thee,
On, laud beloved ! thy liberty !

See the beacons brightly blazing !
Ranks of war?in deadly light!
Wives and mothers speechless gazing?
Conqu'rors shout! and foes in flight!
Sons of freedom ! thus will we 1
Guard and strike for liberty.
Hail! to hiui the helm now guiding, '
Long and glorious be his sway !
O'er his name like stars presiding, i
Palo Alio?Monterey.
Chosen ! favored ! long niay he
Secure his country's liberty.
Raise our banuer, proudly soaring i
With its eagle to the sky, '
Trumpets sounding?cannons roaring?
For a nation's victory.
America, for thine ! for thee !
The sacred land of liberty.

Foreign Intelligence?In consequence of the
continued interest that seems to be felt in foreign
affairs, we have despatched a correspondent with |
directions to sit himself down on the seat of war,
but he has already written word to say that "the
seat of war has not a leg to stand upon." He was ,
instructed to take whatever route be chose, but he
has declined taking root any where, and prefers i
making himself a sort of correspondent mobile, <
picking up something wherever he is set down, and
sending it off to us in sixpenny worth's at a time,
whenever he has enough to complete a sixpenny
paragraph. From Presburg he has sent us biscuits,
but tne details are dry; ana from Naples he forwards
soap, which indicates that both parties are
prepared to administer to each other a lathering.
From Bavaria our correspondent forwards us
brooms, which shows that the insurgents have had
a brush with the authorities; and from Florence a
flask of oil assures us of an intention in that quarter
to hold the olive branch.
From the " Christum Inquirer."
Collection of the Works of tke Old Masters,
Mr. HazJitt said of the time-honored works of
Art, " They are not good because they are old, but
old because they are good !" Ope of the satisfactions
of the traveller who visits for the first time the
galleries of Europe, is the conviction which strengthens
as he goes from one work of high art to another,
that there is a numning in the reputation of the Old
Masters. So potent is mere fashion, so overwhelming
the influence of a heartless conventionalism,
that one is led sometimes rashly to conclude
against all pretension; but the estimation in which
succeeding generations have agreed to hold the
painters of the older schools, is happily not to be
classed among the results of a poor imitativeness, or
servile submission to the dicta of others. Their appeal
is to something beyond technical rules, and
above the power of prescription; and the response of
the imagination and the heart asks no sancuon from
connoisseurs or critics.
n seems birange, since pictures anord so large a
portion of tbe pleasures enjoyed by intelligent
Americans in foreign travel, that a collection of pictures
like that whose title we have placed at the
head of these remarks should attract so little attention
in New York. The reason assigned is, the
number of counterfeits that have been palmed off
upon our community in times past as antique works,
possessing neither merit nor genuineness, and dishonoring
art by asking admiration which no person
of common sense could bestow.
But the collection at present exhibited here is the
property of a person of unimpeachable respects- |
bility?a (Mint of great importance as it regards the
genuineness of the pictures ; and possesses pictures
which, in the opunon of the best judges, have a
value wholly independent of the name and reputation
of their authors.
The Martyrdom of St Lawrence, by Titian,
would, if it had been exhibited alone, have attracted
more attention and interest than it has yet commanded,
as the rent re of a magnificent collection.
The "Flight into Egypt," of Murillo, certainly
bears no unfavorable comparison with the famous
"Trinity," of the same great master?one of the
gems of the British National Gallery. Besides
these, we have specimens of Ruyadael, Holbein,
Weeninx, Jordaens, Spagnoletto, Rembrandt, and
more eminent nsmes still, a Fornanna ascribed to
Rsnhael bv good judges, a Madonna of Carlo Oolci;
an Ecce Homo, by Guido, etc., etc.; the whole comprising
works that would be highly prized in any
gallery in Europe.

care, before vtailing the principal collecuonaabroad,
in order to form auch judgment aa the uninatructed
observer may of the value of theee picturea; and it
1a no more than justice to say, that our opinion of
the Lyceum Gallery waa even higher after we had
aeen moot of the great gallenea between London
and Naples, than while our range of comparieon
waa wellnigh limited to the achieve men ta of our
nauve arutta, and the copiea of the Old Maatera
which hare reached thia country. We are the
more willing to make thia obaerration, becauoe our
opinion of in ear picturea la confirmed by that of
thoae among ua who hare a right to judge?artista
and connowoeurs, aa well aa mere lorere of the
Mr. Nye'a hope in bringing hia collection to New
York waa, that in thia great centre of the wealth
and enterprise of (he nation, the idea would be
adopted of making thia gallery the centre or nucleus
of a great national one, which we muai hare sooner
or laier, and which will probably find its natural
position in thia city. Bnt we hare thus far been too
much occupied, whether with rerolutiona abroad,
or gold-hunting, or President-making at home, to
turn our intention 10 the fine arte in eo efficient a
mode. We seem to be awaiting a period of leisure
which may nerer arrire, before we aet oboul the
means of that refinement which alone can make
leisure raluable, or eeen aafo.
We are happy to obaerre that strangers nailing
the city hare learned to consider the Lyceum Gallery
aa one of the legitimate ahowa. This, with the
throng which fills the Art-Union Gallery daily, as
well as the Duaeeldorf Collection, gives ua good
hope for the future, while we lament the comparative
carelnasneaa of the present.

Ve&moxt.?We have assurances by letter and
otherwise that the Whigs of Vermont are arousing
themselves for a gallant effort at the September
election, and that their success is beyond reasonable
doubt. A large proportion of the Whigs who
declined to vote for Taylor last fail, will now heartily
support the Whig ticket. Our correspondents name
several towns in which they know of twenty to
thirty voters of this stamp. On the other hand,
many old line Locofocos, who have not learned the
new Abolition quickstep, insist that it will take more
lime than intervenes between this and September to
qualify them for its due execution, especially if the
hot weather should continue. The Rutland and
Addison Whur county conventions to nominate ;
Senator* were* eld last week, and evinced unusual
pirit and confidence. Rutland ia preparing to give
a large Whig majority ; Addison a very good one.
The two are deemed good for 3,000.
Aa to the seat in Congress about to be vacated by
Mr. Marsh, our friends assure us that there is no
question of the election of a Whig. Ex-Governor
Horace Eaton is generally spoken of as the favorite
candidate, and could not lie beaten, but whoever
may be run by the Whigs is morally sure of
an election.?-Ve?c York Tribune.
Advantages or Fkee Trade.?Fourteen thousand
tons of railroad iron, required for the railroad
from Cleveland to Columbus, in Ohio, has been or- '
tiered from England, and is now arriving from that
country by way of Quebec and Montreal in British
vessels, and a contract has been made for the transportation
of it through Canada by way of the St.
Lawrence and Wei land canal , also with British vessels,
to Cleveland. In this instance not only the
manufacture of the iron, but every thing pertaining
to its transportation until ready for use, goes out of
the country, and none to our own citizens, thus depriving
our manufactures and commerce of patronage
of large amount.
Galena and Chicaoo Railroad.?The Chicago
Democrat says the road will be completed to Cottage
Hill, eighteen miles, by the 4th of July. The
daily receipts now amount to between $50 and $60.
This would amount to $15,000 per annum, supposing
300 working days in the year.
When the road is completed to Elgin, the annual
receipts, calculating the increased business, would
amount to near $50,000 per annum.
It is expected the road will be'completed some
time this fall. The citizens of St. Charles are also
determined to complete the branch to that place at
the same time.
The Old Hunker Central State Committee, 'at
Albany, have issued a proposition to effect a union
with the Free-Soil section of the party. They suggest
that " both committees agree to recommend
that one delegate from each organization be selected
in each assembly district, to meet in separata bodies
at Ronfc, on the fifteenth of August next, for the
purpose of consulting and devising means of union;
and, if it shall be deemed expedient, to meet in joint
convention, and suggest names for a union ticket
for Slate officers."
New Bedford and California.?The California
fever in New England has scarcely ever run
higher than at present, though there is more method
in the madness of the out-goers. There are no less
than seven large vessels fitting out at New Bedford
for the gold regions, mostly loaded with lumber
and bricks. The owners will unquestionably make
profitable voyages. The whaling ships are bring
ing into both Nantucket and New Bedford a good
deal of gold from California.
Improvement of Rivers.?It is said that Mr.
Ellet is now making a series of observations on the
velocity, amount of discharge, and the height of the
Ohio river, in its various stages. These observations
will be continued several years. They are
designed to demonstrate the practicability of maintaining
a uniform depth of seven-feet water for
steamboats, by constructing great reservoirs at the
sources of the stream?collecting the annual flood
there, and regulating the supply of water to the
river by means of locks and dams.
Celebsation at Pinev Point.?The National
Anniversary of the 4th of July is to be celebrated
at Pincy Point with unusual tdat. Mr. Kirkwood,
one of the gentlemanly and popular proprietors of
the hotel at Piney Point, is now in this city completing
his arrangements for an aquatic excursion,
for the accommodation of the citizens of the District
of Columbia, of which doubtless great numbers will
avail themselves. An eloquent oration is of course
a part of the programme of the day's enjoyments.?
It is worthy of observation, that the Pine regions
have ever escaped the cholera scourge, so that this
excursion to Piney Point has many recommendations.
It will be a healthful trip to a "cityof Refuge"
from a city whose intolerable heat dries up or exudes
the juices of the physical system.
We commend it cordially to the robust and tlx:
invalid, both for the preservation and the restoration
of health and comfort.
Tianuvci meetings at the Nitt Yard.?
The meetings of the volunteer temperance association
" Washington urn Minute Men, -W 1," continue
to be held regularly at the Navy Yard. They usually
take place on Thursday evenings, at the corner
of Garrison street and Virginia avenue, and on
.Sabbath afternoons, at 4 o'clock, in the Markethouse.
The attendance, thus far, has been highly
respectable; and it is believed that good has been,
and will continue to be, done by them in that section
of the city.
The audience was addressed last Thursday evening
by B. E. Smith, esq., of Maryland, and other
gentlemen. Mr. Smith, Mr. Gobnghl, Mr. Cunningham,
and other speakers, will address the
people this evening, on Virginia avenue, near Garrison
Boat Cluss.? We noticed,on Monday evening,
four handsome club boats, well manned and tastefully
decorated, bound for Custis's Spring. They
were called the Arlinglon, the Bouquet, the Cygnet,
end the Atlantic. The Falcon was not afloat.
A Desirable Iwraovsmewt?Among the numerous
petitions laid before the Council# on Monday,
we observe one presented by Mr. Gideon, s member
from the Fourth ward, very numerously signed,
praying the Corporation to request of the President
of the United States to direct that F street, a central
and general thoroughfare, should be opened
through the Jndtciary aqtiare, between Fourth and
Fifth airrcta, in virtue of the authority veated in the
Executive by the new charter of the city, paased
at the last Congreaa. Thia improvement will add

New Yorker* do man Age to enjoy themselves;

he cares of business. The fashionable watering
daces begin to be quite crowded. We have quite

igreeuble places of summer resort, and the means

iteainboats which ply between this city and Staten

vilh all the gaiety, and hilarity, and frolicsome

which characterize American human nature

The glorious bay of New York may be called the
Saratoga, the Newport, the Cape May, of that
peat, substantial, plain, frugal, hard-working porion
of soeiety which constitutes the broad and secure
foundation of our social fabric. Scores of
iteamboats, chiefly devoted to pleasure parties, are
ill day paddling along on this magnificent sheBt
>f water. As for the fashionables, they go to
Saratoga, and in that dusty village of anti-scorbutic
selebrity, they swelter in elegant hotels, which
vant nothing except humble fare and a cool temperature
to make them delightful. Or, they go to
Newport, where they are perhaps a little better
>ff for air, and where bathing in the surf is quite
-omantic and exciting,
Thus glides the world away ! Pleasure to-day,
lain and torture to-morrow. Yet it is not well for
nan to shun rational enjoyment; and these watei^
ng places afford the means of a great deal of inno:ent
and healthful amusement to those who know
now to avail themselves of them with discretion.
3f course, I do not include in the amusing part of
the business the sufferings of uneasy papas, who
must "come down handsomely1' on occasions of
iuch rural excursions; or the agitation of considerite
tnamas, who fear dangerous meetings on quiet
moonlight nights between certain young ladies and
jentlemen. Perhaps I may be able to give your
-eaders some amusing notices of the doings at one
ir two of the fashionable watering places hereabouts
jefore the season is over.

her dead. Freed!y, a week after, married hie servant
girl, which occasioned some surprise among
his neighbors, and the coroner was requested to
disinter and hold an inquest over the body of the
deceased wife. While in the performance of this
duty, F. offered him $1,000 to allow ibe body to
remain as it was, which, of course, was indignantly
refused. A postmortem examination was held,
and a red mark, supposed to have been caused by
a cord, was discovered on her neck, and the physician
concluded that she came to her death by
strangulation. A cord has since been discovered
on the premises. These are the facts elicited by
the evidence for the Commonwealth. The prisoner
has able counsel in Messrs. Hazlehurst, Barton,
and Remak.
The ten persons who were arrested, as I mentioned
in my letter of yesterday, for participating
in the firemen's fight on Sunday night, have each
been held to bail in the sum of $2,000 to answer.
Independent of the murder trial, there is nothing
of importance occurring in the courts. The

but will soon adjourn.
Watson Q. Haines, who has created considerable
excitement here in regard to the abolition of flog!
ging in the navy, has been instrumental in getting
up several mass meetings, and succeeded in convincing
some sensible men that the sailors are "injured
individuals," and that our gallant officers are
all tyrants, and who is to l>e in Washington next
winter for the purpose of procuring the passage of
a law to ameliorate the condition of the aforesaid
sailors, was yesterday held to bail in $500, to answer
the charge of disorderly and riotous conduct
in disturbing a meeting at the Mariners' Bethel,
held a few evenings since. Haines is determined
to be a martyr; and though his object is a popular
and perhaps a proper one, he has not, I take it, pursued
the proper course to atfftn his ends.

The friends of the Administration in this city are
looking, with anxiety, for the appearance of the
Republic among them; when, without doubt, a large

That dreadful scourge that destroyeth at noonday
has been worse in our city than during any previous
period of its existence. The interments for
the past week, ending Monday, the 19th insL,
reached the astounding number of 521; of which
419 were deaths from cholera. The greater proportion
of this mortality has been among the emigrants
and poorer classes in our community; still
many of our most valued citizens, of both sexes,
have fallen victims to the fell-destroyer. The mortality
of the past week is decidedly greater than
ever before known to have occurred in our city during
the same space of time. We are in hopes that
it is at its height, yet many apprehend still greater
destruction of life. The panic among many of our
citizens is great, which all experience proves is a
principal incentive to attack and fatality. My own
impression is, we have seen the worst of it, and that
from henceforward it will commence declining, un
til the usual health of the city is restored.
Active and energetic measures are going on all
over the burnt district for rebuilding, and in a few
months it will be covered with beautiful substantial
fire-proof buildings. In the end, I very much
doubt whether the dreadful conflagration of the 17th
and 18th April last will be of very serious injury to
us. There are individual cases of extreme hardship
and sufferings, but, as a general thing, those
whose property was destroyed are either fully covered
by insurance, or were a bundantiy able to sustain
the loss.
Colonel Benton is at present the centre of attraction
in this State, and has aroused a feeling of acrimony
among his own political friends; which renders
a reunion at present as impracticable and impossible
as such an event was in the Stale of New York
among the Old Hunkers and Barnburners previous
to the last Presidential election. He still continues
his peregrinations through the State; and, although
encountering much hostility from many of those
who heretofore have yielded implicit obedience to
his commands, yet he carries with hiin a majority
of the Locofoco party. Benton is attacked mostly
by the small-beer politicians of his own party,
who hope to gain notoriety by placing themselves
in an antagonistic*! position to their great champion
and leader. This is peculiarly the case
with Jackson, who is an aspirant for the successorship,
and of Krum in this city, who thinks
his hUrwnf fame will in no wise suffer by being
invited by his party to a seat in the Senate of the
United States. Theee attacks, however, upon Mr.
Benton, are made either behind his back, or when
he is so far absent from them that an immediate retort
ia out of the question. Most of them, how
ever, he would never deign to reply to.
From a careful examination of the whole ground,
and after regarding the chaiacter of thoee constituting
the principal political supporters of Colonel
Benton, I hazard nothing in the assertion that he
will eventually be sustained by his party in this
State, snd triumphantly re-eiected to the Senate of
the United States by them. His bold and fearless
course has given him more strength in the northwestern
States than he ever before enjoyed; and in
the States of Illinois, lows, Wisconsin, and Missouri,
msny of the Locofooo papers have already
brought him before the public aa a candidate for
the Presidency in 1852 Unless, however, Colonel
Benton has undergone a radical change of sentiment
upon this subject, he has no political aapirationa
for the future, save to retain his present position aa
tit* Senator from the State of Missouri in the Congress
of the United States. In a few daya I will
writa you again, and more at length.

The Crevasse stopped.?We have at length
the inexpressible pleasure of being able to announce
to our fellow-citizeDS that the Sauvl crevasse, the
source of so much evil to our city, is at length
stopped. This consummation, for which so many
hundreds of the inhabitants of the back districts of
the city have been long anxiously looking, took
place on Monday evening. By the skill and unremitting
exertions of Messrs. Dunbar and Surgi, oar
resident surveyors, the preliminary labors toward
the grand act of finally shutting off the waters from
pouring through the breach had gone on steadily,
since they resumed the charge of the works, up to
that day.
As the work of closing the main breach was progressing,
Messrs. Dunbar and Surgi had prepared
an immense sluice, or lock, or floodgate, to be sunk
at once in front of the central aperture by which
the waters of the Mississippi poured over the adjacent
On Monday evening, then, all being ready, the
floodgate was suddenly let down, when the volume
of water, impeded in its flow through the accustomed
channel, rose several feet in height, toppling
over the artificial breastwork which it encountered.
; The works, however, had been well constructed,
and all remained firm, notwithstanding the impetuosity
of the current and the vast weight of the voluminous
body of water which they were for the
j moment obliged to sustain. After a few ineffectual
surges on the part of the Father of Waters to overj
come the barrier, the current resumed its accustomed
flow within its ancient bed, and the 8auvt
crevasse emphatically became a thing that was.
There are still a few small openings at both ends
I of the worlds, through which the water continues
1 to leak?in very small quantities, however?and
which will necessitate the continuance of the aur- j
veyors for a few days. But the crevaaae ia stopjied. J
