gentlemen through the (lay, to show them how we
celebrule the Eourlli; but it would require inore
influence thu.ii the city of Boston possesses to induce
the steamer to remain five minutes beyond its
fixed hour of departure.
The regulations of the company, in this respect,
are very imperative?arbitrarily so, it would seem,
sometimes, when, by waiting five minutes, an important
muil from New York could be put on
board the boat. To illustrate the punctuality
practised, when the Europe was aliout to sail a
tortnigru tsmce, mere won some ueiuy in the arrival
of the baggage of Mr. Russell Slurgis and his family,
who had taken (Mtssage. About half a minute before
the clock struck twelve, the hand-cartman
made his appearance, and rushed, trundling his
cart, towards the boat. As he stopped, it wanted
some thirty seconds of the time of departure. It
would take a minute, perhaps, to untie the trunks,
and tumble them on board. But, to accomplish
this, the steamer would have to wail some forty
seconds. It must not be. Of two evils, the least
must be chosen. Mr. Sturgis and his family must
either abandon their baggage or quit the boat, and
they must decide at once. The bell rings. They
have just time to hurry across the plank back to
?h? u/harf when the roues are cast off. the engine
begins to move, and the huge bulk of the Europa
swaya away from 'its mooringa. Probably, if its
starting at that precise moment had been the
means of precipitating the whole [tarty overboard,
there would have been no delay. Desirable as
punctuality is, it certainly seems that a little discretionary
power might be confided to the captain
in these cases, as well as in those where an important
mail is within twenty seconds of arriving.
The day has been ushered in with the usual
patriotic noise and parade; with ringing of bells,
and the discharge of artillery. The weather is
gratefully cool. I have heard of no serious accident
as yet. The prettiest feature of the celebration
has been a floral procession of children, which was
very beautiful. As part of the adjacent cities and
towns have an independent celebration, Boston is
crowded with visiters, and the streets are almost
impassable. * *

People pursue their usual avocations once again;
the river runs down stream, as it was wont to do;
fish swim, and steamboats ply between this and
Camden as if nothing unusual had ocurred. One
day in a year, our good people think, is sufficient to
show their appreciation of the efforts of our forefathers;
that being over, patriotism is carefully put
away, like a Sunday coat, not to be brought out
again till the next anniversary. Several fires occurred
in different parts of the city during the day,
but none of them proved very destructive. A very
few pugilistic exhibitions took place, and any quantity
of powder was burnt!
1 am elad to perceive that you are endeavoring to
enlighten the very venerable, astute, and erudite
editor of the "Union," in regard to the early history
and Federal predilections of an honorable exSecrelary.
I have taken some pains to ascertain
the facts of Mr. Buchanan's service, and am credibly
informed that not a musket, but a very long
and broad and formidable sword was used by the
ex-Secretary on that never-to-be-forgotten occasion.

The pommel of the saddle was also adorned with a
pair of holsters. My informant, who, I may say,
was one of the company, is not exactly certain
whether the holsters contained pistols or not. Whether
this be so or not, the ex-Secretary presented a
very warlike appearance; and the enemy, doubtless,
would have fled before him in "dire confusion"
had hs been fortunate enough to meet them. You will
pardon me, 1 hope, for going into these particulars,
but the early history of great men is so apt to be
obscured and forgotten in the brilliancy of their
subsequent cariwr, that, I take it, the smisble biographer
of the ex-Secretary will thank me for putting
him in possession of these important and interesting
The recommendation of the President to his fellow-citizens
to set apart the first Friday in August
as a da of fasting, humiliation, and prayer, meets
with the hearty approval of all sects and denominations

Our citizen* have been agreeably disappointed today
in finding that but fifty-six rase* of cholera
have been reported, and nineteen death*. The
number i* large enough; but, from the exposure
and excaanefl incident to the celebration of the
Fourth, they were led to anticipate at leaat double
the number.
The Locofoco convention, which met at Pittsburg

St. Loria, Mo., June 27, 1849.
Last night a tremendous and exciting public meet
in? took place at the Rotunda in this city, to con
aider what means, if any, could be adopted toward*
mitigating the violence of the pealilence that ia dnilj
cutting down hundreda of our fellow-ciurena. Upor
ihe mayor and the common council, the "aeven viali
of wrath" of the apeak era were poured, and a reao
lution adopted calling upon them to resign, in th<
event of their neglecting or refuaing to carry out al
the meaaurea recommended by the meeting. To i
certain extent the city authoritiea are amenable t<
the charge of neglect of duty; but the vaat l?ody o
the community are by no meana blameleaa for th
dreadful condition of thinga with which we are a
preeent aurronnded. When the cholera first broki
out in St. Louia, and waa manageable, the cit;
preaa were abused by the HolUn and rent portion c
the community, if any thing waa aaid by them abou
cholera being in the city. They were called "erotk
era," "Wtrrnih," Ac., Ac . and charged with drit
ing buaineaa from the city, by mentioning that chc
lera exiated in ftl. Louia ; and now, when the fruit
of auch culpable indiacretion and avaricioua mfk
encea are lieing viaited upon ua, the whole of th
censure ia heaped upon the common council.
A great deal of excitement waa manifeated at th
meeting, and no e[>eaker waa permitted to procee
without interruption who attempted to defend th
city authoritiea, or to oppoae the rcaolutiona ir
atructing them under certain contingencies to reaigr
I have, however, no doubt they will do all in the!
power to meet the wiahee of the meeting; but ur
leaa they are met by more hearty co-operation o
the part of the people and the occupanlanf tenemeni
in keeping their own premiere clean, there wi

or may hereafter lie done.
The aggregate number of deaths during the pa
week, ending Monday tin 2.r>ili instant, ia aev?
hundred und fifty, of which upwards of six hundred
were from cholera- Our population haa been
reduced from aeventy to about fifty thousand, by
families and individuals going to the country and
the East which will give you some idea of the
aggravated and fatal character of the epidemic that
is raging among us. I question whether the history
of the ravages of the cholera in the United
States exhibits, in any instance, so great mortality
as that which has been visited upon St. Louis.
During the last twenty-four hours there has been
no decrease in the number of deaths, and every
family that is able has either gone or contemplates
going, unless there is a speedy change for the better
in the health of the city. Many of our most
estimable citizens of both sexes daily fall victims to
the destroyer, and 1 think there is a full proportion
of the mortality from among the better and more
prudent classes in society.
Notwithstanding this dread of the human family
is spreuding itself throughout the borders of the
states ot both Missouri and Illinois, 1 cannot discover
tliat it lessens the acrimony, o# checks the
excitement, that the war of the Rous has created
in the ranks of our political opponents. Col. Benton
has effectually carried the war into the enemy's
camp, having made speeches at the very doors of
Jackson, who stands godfather for the Calhoun resolutions
adopted at the last session of our Legislature,
and of Mr. Atchison, his colleague, who
coincides in opinion with those favoring the resolutions.
Jackson is the aspirant to the Serialorship
as the successor of Col. Benton, und has a personal
interest in breaking down, if possible, " Old Bullionbut
thus far the vantage ground is decidedly
with Benton, who is dealing his blpws upon all
sides against those of his own political ritual who
have conspired to deprive him of his influence and
his position with his party, in this city measures
are steadily progressing for the early commencenvnt
of another Democratic organ, which is to be
under the editorial management and control of
Samuel H. Treat, esq., the late editor of the Union,
now the organ of the Benton wing of Locofocoism
in Missouri. Treat has a constitutional hatred of
Col. Benton, having been trained and schooled
in a systematic opposition to him by Shadrach
Penn, deceased, who for many years was a perfect
thorn in the side of the "father of the Senate."
The Benton men, somewhat alarmed at the pros
pect of such formidable opposition, and apprehensive
that the present editor and proprietor of the
Union, Mr. R. Philhps, will be found wholly unequal
to the task of coping with so experienced a
tactician as Treat, opened negotiations some weeks
since with Mr. A. R. Corbin, of your city, the
present efficient clerk of the Committee on Claims,
with a view of prevailing upon him to return to
this city and again ascend the tr:pod as the champion
of Col. Benton. Should they accomplish this,
from the personal devotion of Corbin to Col. Benton,
his tact, experience, and industry as an editor,
and his cunning and shrewdness as a party manager?he
will be able to do more towards spiking
the guns and taking the battery about being put into
operation by the Calhounists under the command
ot Ireat, than any other man whose services or influence
they can command. The division is fairly
and irreparably made; and Benton, having set his
fool upon the ploughshare, is determined to pass
the ordeal. His influence is not only felt in Missouri,
but has extended itself to both Illinois and
Iowa with alarming rapidity, so far as the peace
and harmony of progressive Democracy are concerned.
Judge King's letter approving of Colonel
Benton's course has added greatly to his strength,
as it gives him the entire executive influence of the
State, which is not a little, I can assure you.

Arrival of the Washington. *
The t?ccan Strum Navigation tnmpany'i ship
Washingtm , Capt. G. W. Floyd, has arrived,
bringing the Uniud States contract mails from Eng
land, France and Germany
The Washington sailed from Bremen on the 12ih
of June, (three days before her,appointed time,)
and arrived at Southampton on the 14th. This
change in the day of sailing from Bremen was ne'
ceaaitaied by the refusal of the Daniah Government
, to permit the importauon of coals, for the use of the
American steamers in the Wescr; and the three
' days' extra time was therefore needed, to enable the
- Washington to take on lioard at Southampton a full
r. supply of coals.
. The Washington finally sailed from Southampton
on the 2Uih June, and has therefore made a fair
i run across the Atianuc of 14 days.
, We are informed that it was owing to a very I tad
, description of coal having been supplied to this
steamer in New York, that her last outward paa'
*?<;> , h? tier to Southampton, wns protracted to 15
t days; whereas, had good fuel been put on Itoard,
Captain Floyd asserts he could have gone across
r in 12 to 13 days. The weather was beautifully
I fine, and the passengers highly gratified with the
if comforts of the vessel.
The Washington on this occasion brings one of
the most valuable cargoes of manufactured good*
y ever imported into this city; the principal part eonr.
statin^ of French manufactures of an exceedingly
costly character, including silk and satin broadstufTs,
ribbons, gloves and fancy articles. She has about
* 450 tons merchandise altogether, say about 100 ton*
i- from Bremen, 300 tons from Havre, (transhipped at
Southampton from three sjiecial steamer*chartered
for the purpose,) and 50 tons of men-hand *e from
Southampton. Many of the cases of French silks,
e we understand, are valued at ?4000 to $5000 per
,1 case, and the total value at the cargo has lieen estimated
at upwards of one million of dollars. It wn*
r stated in Havre that the whole of the freight room
t- in the Hermann, and also for the Washington's
i, next voyage, had been secured by a few Paris
housea, and all hopea of shipping goods by many
lr parties were therefore abandoned. The French
- merchants are precluded from sending their valur,
able goods to this country by English steamers, as
|(| the navigation laws now operate, and the sailing
| packet* being comparatively alow and uncertain, It

praises of the newly projee.ted Havre and Ne*

The Washington brings 90 second das* and 00
first class passengers. Amongst the latter is Mr.
Joseph Rodney Croskey, the U. S. Consul at
Southampton, and Agent to the Ocean Steam Navigation
Company at that port. Mr. Croakey comes
to America after an absence of seven years, on
leave of absence, and we believe his business here
is mainly to arrange for an extension of the means
of steam communication between New York and
Southampton in conjunction with Havre.
From Ismdtm papert lu June 20t/i.
On the 19th ultimo, in the House of Lords, Lord
Brougham tnude a long speech in support of the following
resolutions, viz:
" That by an act passed in the Parliament of
Canada, entitled ' An act to provide for the indemnification
of parties in Lower Canadn, whose property
was destroyed during the rebellion in the
years 1837 and 1838,' no security is afforded against
compensation for losses sustained in the rebellion in
Canada in 1837 and 1838, being given to persons engaged
in the said rebellion.
"That it is just and necessary, either by recom
mending; a further and amending hill to tin: Legislature
of Canada, or by such other means as may be
effectual, to provide security against any compensation
for losses sustained in the said rebellion being
given to persotis engaged in or having aided or
abetted the same.1'
Earl Grey replied at considerable length, und
wound up by saying that, "so far from its being
true, that if their lordships adopted this resolution
they would throw oil on the troubled waves, and
produce a calm on the excited ocean of Canadian
politics, it was his firm conviction thut, by passing
such a resolution, they would shake that confidence
which all parties cherished in the system of government
now happily established there, and lead
them to suppose that they were not to be allowed to
deal in a manner which should be satisfactory to
themselves, with matters of domestic and internal
concern. His conviction was, that to come to such
a decision wotfld be a dangerous blow to the security
of the Canadian government. It was on
those grounds that he trusted their lordships would
concur with him in refusing an assent to the resolution
of the noble and learned lord."
Departure of two of the State I'ruouers.
Dublin, June 16.?The sentence of ten years1
transportation hus been at length carried into effect
upon Mr. John Martin and Mr. Kevin O'Doherty,
the editors respectively of the Irish Felon and Tribune
newspapers. This morning, at 5$ o'clock, a
single covered vehicle conveying the governor of the
convict prison depot arrived at the gates of the
Richmond Penitentiury. That official was the
bearer of the warrant of the Irish Executive, for the
delivery of the bodies of John Martin and Kevin
Izod O'Doherty. Soon after a body of mounted
police arrived, accompanied by the blacjt cart, or
prison villi, which, wun no cocui i, oiu.iai uie punoii
gates and drew up in the inner yard. The query
was then put if the prieoners were ready. The
reply was that they were asleep, and that they would
then be roused. So secret were all the arrangements
kept, that none of the public had the least intelligence
of the intended removal of the two prisoners.
At about 6A o'clock, Mr. Martin issued from
his cell, and stood in the prison-hall prepared for
departure. He bade a kindly farewell to the governor
and officials, and warmly shook hands with
one or two gentlemen who were present. Mr.
O'Doherty then came out, dressed as if for travelling.
Mr. Martin expressed himself as in good
health, but there appeared a painful shortness in his
breathing, and his cheeks seemed flushed. As they
stood in the hall a side door opened, and Mr. Smith
O'Brien stood in the doorway, having come from
his cell to bid farewell to his fellow prisoners, perhaps
for ever. This scene was soon over, and
turning away from the door, which closed again on
their friend, the two'prisoners announced themselves
ready. Mr. M'Manus came dowa also, and wished
to remain and see them depart, but this privilege
was not allowed him. He look his brief and painful
adieu, and returned to the solitude of his prison.
After some delay in getting fixed the few articles of
baggage belonging to the prisoners, the van, with
its escort, issued from the prison gates, where it
was met by nearly a regiment of dragoons?the advanced
guard with loaded carbines, ?iid the rest
with swords drawn. Mr. O'Ferrall, inspector of
police, waa present. The cortege set off at a gallop
along the Circular-road,skirting the city, and struck
in on the Kingstown highway at Baggot street

where, we understand, the Trident wursteamer
was awaiting the arrival of the prisoners,
with orders to proceed, after having received them
on board, to Cork Harbor, where she will land the
prisoners at Spike Island.
Insurrection at Ltons?On the same day with
the insurrection in Paris, to wit, June 13th, agitation
began to prevail at Lyons, and issued on the
15th in a formidable insurrection. The movement
seems intended to have been general throughout
France. It has, however, been signally defeated.
A letter from Pans, of June 18th, which we find in
the London Times, gives the following particulars
of the Lyons out-break :
The insurrection liegan by the defection of a post
of from 150 to 200 men of the 17th Ligl)t Infantry,
who had been on guard at the Veterinary School.
The conspirators distributed wine and brandy
amongst them, made them drunk, and then tried to
convince them that the government had been overthrown
in Paris, drc. In the morning of the 15th,
500 or 600 of the insurgents presented themselves
at the military post, surrounded and easily disarmed
them. A portion of them afterwards joined the insurgents
with the pupils of the Veterinary School.
The other portion of the post, who had been disarmed
by superior force, but who refused to join
the insurgents, actually wept with rage at the infamous
deception practised on them. The 17th
regiment insisted on being led first to the attack, to
wash away, in the blood of the traitor and the rebel,
the stain thus flung on the honor of a gallant corps
by the voluntary or involuntary desertion of some
ot its members, and they weije the first to present
themselves to the enemy. The disarmed soldiers
who refused to follow the insurgents, and who were
subsequently enabled to join their regiment, fought
with enthusiasm against the rebela. Three of thoae
who had gone over to them were afterwarda taken
[riaonerti by their own eomradca, who tried them
y the haaty proreaa of drumhead court-martial?
held while bullets were dying around?found them
guilty, and ahot them on the apot. "Soldiers!"
cried the colonel of the 17th, while with uplifted
sword he gallantly led them to the barricade, "our
regiment, the gallant 17th Light Infantry, haa a diehonor
to avenge?a atain to efface from ita colors '
The atain waa effaced.
The 17th Buffered considerably; but it boa acquired
a right to the laaiing gratitude of the peoph
of Lyons.
The whole of the regiments engaged conductec
themaelvea admirably. Many ol the men aaid
"They have taken ua for Socialists ; rh hun ' w<
will prove to the contrary "
It was only lietween 7 and 8 o'clock in the rven
ingof Friday, that the cannonading ceased,and caIn
waa reatored.
The loaa on the jutrt of the insurgents is slated ti
be about 160 in killed and wounded,and more thai
800 priaonera. The grape shot made lerrihle hnvm
in their ranka. It la stated that the loaa on the par
of the troopa ia about 60 men, lietween killed nnr
At 11 o'clock on Saturday morning the city wai
perfectly tranquil, the ahops were again opened,am
1 reinforcements continued to arrive. At that hou
there was no probability that order would lie agau
1 disturbed.
It would appear that the agitation commenced u

In the forenoon of the 14th a part of the popu'

and, deacending into the city, covered the Place dr

wildcat shout*. The same evening the chief* ol

that, even if he had received despatches, he sbonh

Socialists then caused to lie distributed nmongsi
the crowd a forged telegraphic despatch, of the kind
i I transmitted in mv letter of yesterday, vix., thai
the Mountain had formed itself into s i-onvention
that the Legialative Assembly had been dissolved
l that the President and his Ministers were Stau
i prisoners at Vincennes. These tidings spread
through Lyona like lightning, and crowds o( mer
r traversed the city, shouting: " I'irr la Conrenrton."
I " ?'iw Ijfdm Rnllin /" '' ?'/ bat U hrmdmi
ba* U Rap* It was also announced that a trium
virale had been formed at Pane like that of Rome,
and of which Ledru Ilollin, Ruapail, and fiarb&s
were the members. The crowds demanded that a
red flag, crowned with a Phrygian cap of liberty,
should be hoisted on the grand balcony of the
town hall.
At five o'clock, on Friday morning, the 15th, the
drums of the rebels beat the rayptl in the Croix
Rouase; at 6 o'clock the barricades were commenced
; at 6 o'clock the military present at the
Veterinary School were surrounded and disarmed ;
at 10 o'clock the battle began, and from that hour
until sunset the musketry and cannonade did not
cease to carry terror and death through the streets
of Lyons.
Such terrible scenes the Seine was not destined
to witness.
At the moment of the battle a violent storm broke
over the city of Lyons, and terrific peals of thunder
responded to the firing of the cannon.

who commanded thut of the Conservatoire ties Arts

seized the revolutionary insignia, the red cravat and
belt, he wore on the 13th.
M. D'Alton Shee departed for Brussels in the
evening of the 14th, under the name of a stoker of
the Northern railroad, whose costume he had borrowed.
The Socialist ex-peer actually performed
that disagreeable office. The former questor of the
National Assembly, M. Degoussce, and several
" friends of the Constitution, were passengers in
the same train.
The counting-house of M. Ledru Rolltn, at Fontsnay-uux-Koses,
was also searched, and found to
contain arms, ball, cartridges, gunpowder, and war
like stores of every description.
The accounts received from the departments, announcing
the maintenance of public tranquillity and
the complete defeat of the insurgents at Lyons, produced
a considerable effect on the Bourse to-day,
in raising the price of public securities. The five
per cents, opened at 87f. 50c., rose to 88f. 30c., and
closed at 87 f. 90c.
The decree of the President of the Republic suspending
six Socialist journals was notified to their
editors on Saturday. Those journals were, Le
Peuple, La Republique Democratxqne et Sociale, La
Vrme Republique, Im Democratique Pacifuiue, La Reforme,
and Im Tribune. Appended to that decree
is an order of the Minister of the Interior directing
Gen. Changarnier to establish military posts.in the
offices of those journals.
Madame Cavaignuc, the mother of the General,
was attacked with cholera on Monday, and remains
in a dangerous state.
General Bachelor, one of the most distinguished
Veterans of the empire, and a devoted frienu of the
President of the Republic, died in Paris on Satur
It appears certain that the expedition to Italy was
to be reinforced by from 3000 to 4000 men, under
the orders of Gen. Juan Zahala, who, on his arrival,
will take the command of all the cavalry.
The Papal States.
The Concordia, ofTurin, of the 14th inst., quotes
the following; letter, dated Civita Vecchia the 11th:
"On the 10th the six batteries of siege opened
their fire upon Rome. On the 11th the fighting still
continued. Garibaldi made frequent sorties. It
urua rAnAr(or) ul Pivitu Vooohia An tkb 1 Ilk iknt
the column of Colonel Mati had attacked and defeated
the Spanish troops. Ancona obstinately resisted."
We read in the Piedmontese Gazette of the 14th
instant, under date Rome 8:
It is said that the French arc constructing a covered
way. Their artillery has opened a breach between
the gates of St. Panerazzio and Portete. It
appears certain that the foreign Consuls have protested
against the bombardment of Rome, for the
sake of the monuments. General Oudinot, on the
other hand, sees no possibility of carrying the city
without damaging them. It being feared that General
Ondinot would cut off the supply of provisions,
the municipality had informed the Romans that
there was abundance of wheat in the public stores,
until the end of July.
"The new envoy of the French Republic, M. de
Corcelles, arrived at Civita Vecchia on the 11th." '
The Milan Gazelle of the 12th instant states that
the losses of the Romans, since the commencement
of hostilities, amounted to about 2000 killed, wounded
, or prisoners.
The President of the Roman Constituent communicated
to the Assembly, on the 5th, a despatch
from the Prefect of Fermo, stating that the garrison
of Ancona had made a lortic, in which they killed
or wounded 500 Austrians, with the loss of only 50
wounded and 7 killed

The Vien a '/situng of June 13th publishes an
official bulletin of the victory which the Ban of
Croatia has gained over the Hungarians. It ap- 1
pears that the Ran left TiUel early on the 5th June,
and marching at the head of eight brigades, horse
and foot, advanced to the Roman entrenchments,
where he proceeded to dispose his troops in advantageous
positions. On the 7th an Hungarian army
ot 13 limitations, horse sod foot, and three hatteries. J
came down upon him, and an engagement ensued.
The Austrian artillery did great execution in the
Hungarian ranks; so much so, indeed, that the Im.
perialiat General Oettinger was enabled to make a
< cavalry attack, break through their line of battie.

. Magyars Two of their battalions were literally
. cut to pieces The Hungarians had 500 killed and
tJO dangerously wounded: moat of the latter were
| sacrificed to the passions of the infuriated ImpeIrialiats.
In short, the loss of the Magyars, as
given by the H'mrr ZrUttng, is no leas tnan 1500
killed, while so wonderful were the mnixruvre* of

? The following passage in our correspondent's

the Hungarian question:
"Our government doe* aot now endeavor to disguise
the fact, that this wnrngainat Hungary is a

loot all claim* to greater privileges than those possessed
by the other Austrian provinces."
It appears from our correspondent's letter, that a
desire for accession from the Austrian empire had
again been manifested in Bohemia, and at Agram,
the capital of Croatia.

- I toe satisfaction of a battle with the inaurjents be
fore he quilted the Regent's service. After a combat
of some violence, (the insurgents artillery is
said to have been served very skilfully,) he repulsed
them. His army consists of 2,000 Austrians,
1,000 Prussians, 1,000 Frankfurters, 6,000
Hessians, and 6,000 Mecklenburgers, but the two
latter corps having been ordered by their respective
governments to place themselves under the Prince
of Prussia's command, General Peucker yesterday
sent in hia resignation to the Regent.
The Prussian army on the other side of the
Rhine has occupied one-half of the Bavarian Palatinate
already, without meeting with any resistance.
Only one of three columns into which it was divided
fell in with some Free Corps men. who were
entrenched near a place called Kirchheim-Boland.
The Prince of Prussia accompanied this division,
and witnessed the skirmish, which ended by the
insurgents leaving 40 dead on the spot, and the
Prussian regiments entering the little todm of
Kirchheim-Boland, amidst tne enthusiastic cheers
of its inhabitants.
The last news of the Germun Parliament and

The Insurrection in Bsdcu and Bavaria.
The news in the South German papers bears witness
to the rapid and steady advance of the Prussian
and German troops into the insurgent districts
of Baden and the Rheinpfalz, and the equally rapid
manner in which the Free Corps of revolutionists
effect their retreat. We learn from the Oberpottamlt
Zeitung, that on the 15th inst. one of the
German corps advanced in two columns on the
Bergstrasse, and that the insurgents were driven
back on all points. Weinheim, Ladenburg, and
Kaferthal were taken, and the outposts pushed forward
as far as Schricssheim.
We learn from Kaiserslautern, that the Provisional
Government fled from that place on the
night of the 14th inst. Their armed forces were
likewise removed to the east of the Palatinate, to
Frankenstein and Neustadt. On advancing, the
Prussiun troops met with resistance nowhere except
at Homburg (in the Palatinate,) where something
like a skirmish took place. The Prussians
occupied Kaiserslautern on tnc 15th inst.
W urtemberg.
Wc learn from Stuttgard letters of the 14th inst.,
in the Kolntr Zeitung, that the Regent of Germany,
the Archduke John, has entreated the Government
of Wurteinberg to put a stop to the proceedings of
several persons, styling themselves the NaUonal
Assembly and Provisional Regency of Germany,
and to remove the said persons from the territories
of Wurtemburg. Obedient to the Regent's request,
she King of Wurtemberg's government has
requested the Regency to quit the kingdom. It
appears that the Regency and the National Assembly
decline to accept this advice, and it will be found
necessary to remove them by force.

Capl. G. T. M. Davit, of the St. Louis New

of the death of this gentleman, as having occurred
on the 19th ultimo. This is an error. We received
a letter from him last evening, dated St.
Louis, Jane 28th.
The St. Louis New Era learns from the Tipperary
Free Press that Brother Macarius, a Trappisl
monk of Mount Mcllery, Ireland, has, during a
tour in North America, procured two large tracts of
land for new establishments of his order, the one in
Canada, near Kingston; the other in Iowa, on the
Mississippi. They probably seek in America a
refuge from the revolutionary troubles of France,
as they did in the reign of terror. The ruins of
their beautiful and picturesque retreat were a few
years since, and probably yet are, visible in the
American Bottom opposite to St Louis, Mo.
An exchange paper gives the following items in
relation to the family history of Father Mathew:
Pedigree or Father Mathew.?The papers
are giving accounts of Father Mathew's origin,
and we see that he is of noble blood by inheritance,
as well as by nature; they say that he is actually
descended from "Gwatnvood, King of Cardigan,
in a direct line, from whom was descended the
great standard bearer of King Edward the Fourth,
Sir David Mathew, whose monument is in Landaff
Cathedral, of about the date of 1530." Thegrandson
of Sir William Mathew was high sheriff of the
county of Glumngan, and heir of the estates of
Landaff and Aradyr in 1592; thereon one of his
sons, George, went to Ireland in 161U, where he
married the widow of Lord Thurles, mother of the
first great Duke ofOrtnond.

The Montreal Gazette of Tuesday states the following
fact, as indicative of the low state of property
in that city:
Sheriff's Sale.?Yesterday four cut stone
houses, four stories high, with shops, covering a
lot of 90 feet front, by 100 feet deep, were sold at
sheriff's sale for ^800, (|3,200.) The property is
situated on Wellington street, Griffintown, and belonged
to Mr. Tully. We heard it stated that the
ground alone on which this property is situated
cost ?1,400 a few years ago. Such is the depression
of property in this city at present.
The Queen or Spain has published a general
amnesty for political offences, and promised a general
oblivion, excepting only the confiscations of
property already made, to all her subjects now re
fugees or exiles. The consequence has been an
immense emigration into the peninsula, not only of
Spaniards, but of French, Germans, and Italians,
anxious to place themselves in safety from the
troubles which make life and property insecure in
moat of the States of continental Europe Very
sanguine expectations are formed of the increase of
acuvity likely to be given to trade and manufactures
by the capital the new-comers have introduced
with them. How different this course is
from the policy of Mexico, which jealously excludes
from her territory all foreigners, except on
their compliance with the moat arbitrary conditions!

the United States. When we first started the old
'New Yorker,' our friend Clark bad preceded us
as Editor of the Knickerbocker about a twelvemonth:
it has now reached an age greatly beyond
that of any American Monthly; a fact which literally
'speaks volumes' in praise of the manner in
which the work has been conducted. No number
of the K. has ever been issued under Clash's supervision
that did not bear indubitable evidence of editorial
care, and anxious thought, and well-directed
labor enstainped upon its pages. We have known

by a more marvellous miracle, has perpetually
approached the highest possible point of interest
ana excellence; and yet it seems to have an exctltior,
for each number seems better than that which
