WAHUlflfUTOJNl SATURDAY" AFTERNOON, AfGHfl'T 9. iin , ?rirriTiMMMBMMMBErr-r----- yfp?? Library Cftt?lo(H*?. We Lave received from Professor Chaulis C. Jkwstt, aaaiatnut seeretary and librarian of the 8inithsonian Institution, a pamphlet con tinuing ? A plan for stereotyping catalogues by separate titles, and for forming a general stere otyped catalogue of public libraries in the United Statesalso, "An appendix to the re port ot the board of agents of the Smithsonian Institution, containing a report of the public libraries of the United States of America, Jan-1 uary 1/1860." This plan originated with Mr. Jewstt, though one similar to it in some respects has, subse quently, been proposed in England, for the library of the British Museum, by Mr. Cooley. It has long been an insuperable difficulty | with the directors of large public lifcssHWa?' in ^ , -??*!'- tRLUlD^Ues, printed with great labor and expense, become, in the course of a few years, almost useless for reference, and only serve to show the student what books the library contained at the time of printing, and not what beokft it may contain at the time of his searoh; henoe, supplements must constantly be issued, making it necessary for the reader to search a great number of catalogues to find whether what he wishes is in the library; or a reprint of the whole catalogue must be made, at a tre mendous expense, to keep pace with the rapid inorease in the number of books. This increase, as Professor Jkwktt remarks, though so grati fying on every other account, is the cause of great difficulties in this respect. The reprint of the catalogues of the great libraries of Europe has at length, from the great number of books and their constant in crease, become so exceedingly onerous and ex pensive, that it has been given up in despair. To one who has not examined this subject, and studied its difficulties, it may seem strange that a work apparently so trifling as the printing of library catalogues should prove so serious; but so it is, and he who invents a plan by which the difficulty can be overcome surely deserves the warmest thanks of all who are interested in whatever concerns the advancement of knowl edge. This we think Professor Jkwktt has done most effectually. The chief obstacle is, that while a catalogue is passing through the press, new books are received, whose titles can not, in the usual manner of printing, be incor porated in the work. Mr. J.'s method is to stereotype the titles separately, and to preserve the plates or blocks in the alphabetical order of the titles; so as to be able readily to insert additional titles in their proper places, and then to reprint the whole catalogue. Thus the cost I of composition, and the cost of revision and correction of the press, would, except for new titles, be avoided. It is proposed to print, by this method, cata logues of particular libraries, and a central catalogue, under the direction of the Smithso nian Institution, of all the libraries in the country; the Institution to pay the whole extra expense of stereotyping, or such part thereof as may be agreed on; the stereotyped titles to re main its property, and every library uniting in the plan to have the right of using them when desired. The economy and convenience of this I plan, in every respect, are plainly shown in the pamphlet by several examples, together with the benefits to be derived by American students from the possession of a general printed cata logue of all the books in the public libraries of the Union; from the great improvement in the arrangement of catalogues, and from a univer sal catalogue, which might eventually be formed. In America, all libraries are now comparatively small, and it would be easy to put into practi-1 oal and useful operation this system, which, in a few years, the rapid increase in the number I of books will render impossible. Professor J.'s report on the condition of all the public libraries in this country is very in teresting and useful. In consequence of the many difficulties in the way, it is yet somewhat incomplete; but it will no doubt be improved in a future edition. Tm Peisidkit's Trip to Vihqiwia.?The reception of President Fillmore and suite at Winchester, Virginia, on Wednesday evening, was enthusiastic. The President held a levee at the hotel during the evening, where many of the ladies and gentlemen of Winchester had the pleasure of taking him by the hand. Messrs. Conrad and Stuart found themselves at home here among their relatives and Mends, both of them being natives of the Valley; Mr. Conrad, Indeed, of Frederick county. The throng that collected in^front of the hotel kept up a continuous cheering, and would not be contented until tlfe President made his appearance before them twice, the last time thanking the assembled people for their warm manifestations of regard, and assuring them that he would be happy to address them, had he not previously determined to deliver no speeches during his trip, whioh was one solely of relaxation from the cares of a publie life. He did not wish to be judged by his words, but by his acts. When his brief administration expired, and had become a part of the national history, he asked for nothing more than to be judged by what he had done, and praised or oenaured accordingly. The President then re tired, amidst long and repeated cheers. Messrs. Conrad and Stuart were also called out by the erowd, and made remarks of several minutes' duration, interrupted by frequent applause. The party left Winchester on Thursday morn for the White Sulphur Springs, stopping at Staunton and one or two other points for a few hours. Tn Dat Casb.?There is no Terdict yet The court will open this afternoon to hear any message from the jury; and also to-morrow. It is understood now that there are three parties? two for acquittal, ten probably for murder; thaae two and some of the ten willing to render a verdict for manslaughter. This infor mation is of coarse not to be relied on as eavtain.

MtlUau. ? following oatice has baiu presented to I us for publication f* 1 a Natives and J??iends or Ireland.? thpr in thtj cause of Freedom, Terence us, is now upon our shores, and will visit New York at an early day, to receive the congratulations and hospitality of his friends in that city. Brothers and friends, shall wo not I mutt we not?invite him to the American capi tal, to receive our cougratulations and hospital ity * Earn. For bis aoble struggles in the caiue of free dom, and lor the sufferings he has endured, let us greet Mr. McManus with a cordial and a hearty welcome. But as the representative of an oppressed, a down-trodden and an iryured people, let such a demonstration be made as shall produoe its moral effects upon the world. We have no hatred for England, nor for Eng lishmen ; but for English aristocracy, for Eng lish cupidity, and for English oppression, have^fljypl^ mi;! for Ihe spurious philanthropy that can discern only the wrongs inflicted by other nations, we can entertain no other feeling j than that of contempt. Wo think the present occasion should be I signalized by the publication of a work now much needed in our country?a clear, brief, authentic narrative of the present condition of I Ireland, of the policy that has led to this con dition, and of the means by which Irishmen hope, or rather desire, to redeem her. The American people only need accurate informa- j tion on these subjects to secure their sympathy j and their aid. This beautiful and fruitful | island has been favored by Heaven, and the shadow that has been cast over it by those with I whom "might is right" should be removed. Crime and Wretchedness.?Look in the ! large cities for these; and especially where the abject and the guilty are thrown together, as among the immigrants now cast in tens of thousands upon our shores. On Thursday af ternoon, in Philadelphia, a house was discovered occupied by five families of the most intemper ate, low and degraded wretches; among them a a good-looking woman, named Catherine Con ner, was in a state of beaBtly intoxication, hav ing in her arms a small dead child! Coroner Haas investigated the case, and a verdict was rendered " that the child, Bridget Conner, aged two years and six months, came to its death from neglect and intemperance on the part of her parent." The child had been habituated to drinking liquor along with its mother. It was reduced to a mere skeleton, nothing being left but the skin and bone, and covered with ver min. It is said that the woman's husband had deserted her long ago, in consequence of her dissipation, and that this child had been used to excite sympathy while out begging. In New York, about twelve o'clock on Wed nesday night, a woman was found wandering about the streets in a state of intoxication, with a dead child in her arms. She was taken to the station-house, where she was detained until the ooroner was notified. Must such sights as these become familiar to the people of our cities; or can we not avoid it by compelling every vagrant to enter an I almshouse or workhouse? It is with theae poor creatures every pestilenoe begins. ^ Boots and Shoes.?In New York there are 71 wholesale shoe stores; 2,170 retail ditto; 1,600 manufactories including these, which are mostly manufactories. There are 13,500 men employed at $6 to $10 per week, and 10,600 women at $2.50 to $3.50?total wages $117,600. The capital employed is $3,000,000. At whole- j sale prices, $152,000 worth are made weekly. The work produced is as follows: Ladies' fine welted shoes of various kinds - ? . 21 600 Ladies fine turn around pumps, " ... 38 500 Misses' line shoes, various kinds n'snn Chiidrens' " ? ? JJ'rrr Mens' fine boots and shoes 10*600 Exhibiting a total of - 109,600 j This statement (which we condense from the Evening Post) does not include the immense j amount of boot and shoe work done in places adjacent to the city. Ohio.?The Democrats and Whigs of Ohio i have both completed their State tickets. The i following are the names of the candidates: Whig. GOVERNOR. Democratic. Samuel F. Vinton. Reuben Wood. likut-oovkrnor. Ephraim R. Eckley. William Medill. , SDPREME JUDGES. Sherlock J. Andrews, Rufus P. Rannev Charles C. Convers, Wm. B. Caldwell, I'eter Odlin, John A. Corwin, Bellamy Storer, Thomas W. Bartlev, George B. Way. Allen 0. Thurman Names or Streets.?The systematic mode of designating the streets of Washington, though convenient in the plan of the city, is not the best by any means. Proper names, and the associations connected with them, would prove beneficial. If Eighth street were called Patent street, the locality of the Patent Office would soon fix it on the mind. Columbia College might give the name of College street to Four teenth, and thus the location of the College would be readily ascertained, and by its locality the street would in turn be called up. The Ti ber would give its name to Second street; EUiott to First street; City IIall to Four-and-a-half; Intelligencer to Seventh; Republic to Ninth ; Tnfing to Twelfth; Trcatury to Fifteenth ; La fayette to Sixteenth j Van Ami to Seventeenth, and so on. The preservation of the present names need by no means be interfered with. We think the experience of all who have ever learnel the streets of our city, or tried to, will induce them to approve this plan. The Temperanoi Excursion.?The young lady of whom we yesterday spoke as having re turned to her home very ill, from the effects of fright during the squall on Thursday, has, we are gratified to learn, quite recovered. The presence of Dr. Joseph Walsh, by whom she was attended on board, and subsequently, was a fortunate and gratifying circumstance. Stolen Chickens.?Robert Johnson, a slave, about nineteen years old, was this morning ap prehended by Officer Wollard, having in his possession seven chickens in a champagne bas ket, which he was trying to sell. As he had stolen them, Justice Smith sentenced him to re ceive twenty lashes. General Wool?as we were sure he would? vindicates himself triumphantly. Such charges as that made against him often recoil in an un weleome manner npon their authors and die ttmiuatora. Accident raoM Firm-arms.?Two sons of T. C. Donn, esq., aged six and tight years, were yesterday somewhat injured by the pre mature discharge of a piece of gun barrel, ' about eighteen inches long, which they were using as a piece of miniature ordnanoe. One of them had his hand slightly injured, and from ' the thigh of the other Dr. Bdelin extracted j seven shot which had penetrated to a consider able depth. It is hoped the injuries are not very serious. Mabriaok or Major 0. Tochman and thk IIuncjahian Heroine.?Wo are informed that Major Tochman left Washington city yesterday morning for Harper's Ferry, where he was to be married at nine o'clock this morning to Miss Apollonia Jagiella. These distinguished polit ical exiles, we are further informed, were to proceed, after the ceremony, to Bhannondalc Springs, accompanied by a party of their friends; and thence to one or two other watering-places, and finally to return to this city about the latter part of this month. We are also informed that they will make Washington their permanent abode, and that Major T. will continue the practice of the legal profession in the Circuit and Supreme Courts of the United States, and in soliciting claims upon Congress and the De partments. May he prove as successful in his suits in all other courts as in that of hymen. Public Address on Temperance.-^-A Tem I perance meeting will be held near the east wing of the Patent Office, at the intersection of G and Seventh streets, to-morrow afternoon, (Sun day,) about half-past four o'clock. Should the weather prove favorable, a highly interest ing meeting may be expected, as, we are grati fied to learn, the public will be addressed by an eloquent speaker?Capt. G. W. Cutter, of Ken tucky. ^ A? Indiana Representative.?The Rev. Samuel Brenton, of the M. E. Church, (Whig) has been elected to Congress in the Fort Wayne district, over James Borden, esq., his Demo cratic opponent. Andrew J. Harlan was the late member. _ Mrs. Thompson?see her advertisement?has a pleasant residence in a delightful neighbor hood. Typographical.?The National Typographi cal Convention, to be held in Baltimore city, on the 12th of September, will doubtless be largely attended by the oraft from all parts of the Union. Each society is entitled to five representatives, and a full attendance Is urgently desired, as business of great importance to the craft is ex I pected to come before the convention. A Political Anecdote.?The following ancc dote of the late Gov. James Barbour, of Virgi nia, was told us by a gentleman who resides in the Piedmont region. Gov. Barbour was a can didate to represent his county in the State legislature, and was opposed by Thomas Davis. The Governor, in his speech on the hustings, said: " Fellow-citizens, I had the honor to re present my county for several years in the Assembly of Virginia; I was for some years Governor of this ancient and venerable Com monwealth ; I was for a considerable time a representative of this district in the Congress of the United States; I had, fellow-citizens, at a subsequent period, the honor to hold a seat in the most august legislative body in the world? the Senate of the United 8tates; at another period, I had the place of Secretary of the War Department in the administration of John Q. Adams, and was afterwards Minister Plenipo tentiary and Ambassador Extraordinary near the Court of St. James; and now, fellow-citizens, you may picture to yourselves the humiliation that I feel at finding myself here to-day engaged in a cursed little pitiful county contest with Tom Davis!"?South Side Democrat. n From the Baltimore American. Execution or Amos Grkkn.?The negro Amos Green was hung at Ellicott's Mills at half-past twelve o'clock yesterday. During the morning he engaged in religious exercises with the Rev. Mr. Carter, and professed to be pre pared for the fate which awaited him, and fully resigned; though denying the commission of the crime of which he had been convicted. Execution or the Cosden Murderers.? The execution of Taylor, Murphy and Shelton, the parties convicted of the horrible murder of I the Coeden family, took place yesterday, in the | vicinity of Chestertown, between eleven and twelve o'clock. The whole three were placed | on the scaffold at once, and after the religious | services had concluJed, Murphy and Taylor successively declared their innocence, and as- , sorted that their lives had been sworn away. Taylor not only asserted his innocence, but de- , clared that he had not sc*n Murphy for five i years until he met him in jail, and that he had no previous knowledge of Shelton. The latter, who appeared much more depressed than hip companions, made no remarks; neither confess ing nor denying his guilt. Both Taylor ami Murphy, we understand, exhibited a great de- I gree of fortitude. When the trap fell the noose around Mur- , phy's neck slipped, and he fell to the ground. Though considerably stunned, and liiH neck j lacerated by the rope, the unfortunate man soon recovered his consciousness; and whilst i in this awful situation, with the partners of his guilt hanging before hla eyes, he persisted in declaring his innocence and affirmed repeat edly that they were taking the life of an inno cent man. After the bodies of Shelton and Taylor had hung a sufficient time they were taken down, and Mnrphy again mounted the scaffold and endured the penalty of the law.

Troy (Naw York) Whig, August 7.] 44 Libkkty oyCoMBOliMOi"?Okn. Wool.?As | an act of justice to the military service, the Secretary of War and myself, I am inclined to notice an article published in the Boston Atlas and other papers, headed "Liberty of Con science?the Secretary of War"?relating to the case of private Duggan of the fourth artil lery. 11 is not true as asserted by the editor of the Atlas, that private Duggan was punished for refusing to attend church, nor is it true that the seutence was set aside by the Secretary of War. For disobedience of orders and leaving his oom- j puny without permission, he was subjected to the payment of a fine of about five dollars, and this is all the punishment he has received. The following letter to the Secretary, however, ex hibits a true history of Duggan's case. Washington, July Gth, 1861. Sm:?I have the honor agreeably to your (verbal) request to report my action in the case of Private Duggan, 4th artillery, who was tried at Fort Columbus, by a General Court-martial, ordered by Brevet Brigadier General Walbach. The proceedings of the court were transmitted to General Walbach, who declined acting in the case, and Bent them to myself for decision. 1 returned the proceedings to the General with instructions, in which I observed that inasmuch j as Duggan exhibited far more a spirit of insub ordination than religious scruples, I thought he deserved punishment. At the same time I sug gested that, excepting a fine of five dollars, the sentence be remitted. The General still de clined acting in the case, and returned the pro ceedings to me with a request that I would sub mit the case to higher authority for deoiBion. This I declined to do, and issued the enclosed order, (which remitted the sentence with the exception of the fine of five dollars;) informing General Walbach by letter that if he desired to have the question settled by higher authority, whether or not a Catholic should attend a Pro testant church, on his application I would sub mit the question. But the case was not one of I that character. The punishment inflicted was ' not on account of his religious scruples, but for refusing to apply to his commanding officer for | permission to stay away from church, and for leaving his company without permission. I am, very respectfully, your ob't serv't, (Signed) John E. Wool. It is proper, however, to remark that pre vious to receiving the letter of the Secretary of War, dated the 15th of July, that portion also of the sentence imposing a fine of five dollars per month was remitted. By this remission Duggan was subjected only to a fine of five dollars. The following is my reply to the Se cretary : Hbadquabtbbs, Eastbbn Division, l Troy, N. Y., July 18, 1851. / Sib : I had the honor this day to receive your communication of the 15th instant. In answer thereto, I would enclose two orders showing my action in the case of private James Duggan, the soldier, I presume, alluded to as having been punished for refusing to go to church. Allow me to Bay that he was not punished for refusing to go to church, as you will perceive by an examination of the order No. 11. By special order No. 80, you will also observe that I have remitted the residue of his sentence. The only punishment he received was a fine of | about fivo dollars. I have the honor to be, sir, your ob't serv't, (Signed) John E. Wool. There was no evidence before the court ex cept the simple declaration of Duggan to one of | the witnesses that he was a Catholic. From the testimony of Col. Gardiner, I have no doubt that had Duggan communicated to the Colonel that on account of his religious scruples he could not conscientiously attend a Protestant church, he would have been excused. But this he would not do, and left his company. For i this act of disobedience and insubordination, and for nothing else, I approved bo much of the sentence as imposed a fine of five dollars. From the remark of the editor of the Atlas upon the letter of the Secretary of War, it might be inferred that the officers of the army as | well as myself are intolerant, and would "pun ish a man for declining to give up to his officers in the army his religious belief." I am grati fied to find the editor exhibiting towards the Catholics, and especially to the Irish, those tol erant feelings which no less become his head than his heart. But I yield not to him or any one else in feeling and sympathy for a people who have suffered more from oppression and government than any other on the face of the globe. Far from it. Indeed I would extend to them to the fullest extent the guarantees of j the Constitution?civil and religious liberty. John E. Wool, U. S. A.
