OWING to the late revolutions and counter-revolutions among the na-ious of Europe, which have followed each other in such quick successiou, and of which " the end is not yet," the leading periodicals of Great Britain have become invested with a degree of interest hitherto unknown. They occupy a middle ground between the hasty, disjointed, and necessarily imperfect records of the newspapers, and the elaborate and ponderous treaties to be furnished by the historian at a future day. Whoever reads these periodicals obtains a correct and connected ac count of all the important political events of the Old World, as they oocur, and learns the various conclusion drawn from them by the leading spirit* of the age. The American publishers therefore deem it proper to cadi re uewed attention to the works they publish, and the very low prices at which thuy are offered to subscribers. The following is their lUt, viz: The London Quarterly R/.vnw, The Edinburgh Review, The North British Review, The Westminster Review, and Blackwood's Edinburgh Maoazini. In these periodical''are contained the views, moderately though clearly and firmly expressed, of the three greatest parties in England?Tory, Whig, and Itiulieal; "Black wood" and the " Loudon Quarterly" are Tory, the " Edin burgh Review" Whig, and tho "Westminster Review' Liberal. The " North British Review" owes its establish ment to the last great ecclesiastical movement in Scotland, and is not ultra in its views on any one of llie grand de partments of human knowledge. It was originally edited by Dr. Chalmers, and now, since his death, is conducted by bis son-in-law, Dr. Hanna, associated with Sir David Brewster. Its literary character is of the very highest irder. The "Westminster," though reprinted under that title only, is published in England under the title of the ?' Foreign Quarterly anil Westminster," it being in fact * union of the two Reviews formerly published and reprinted under separate titles. It has, therefore, the axivantage,by this combination, of uniting in one work the best feature) of both, as heretofore issued. The above Periodicals are reprinted in New York,imme (lately on their arrival by the British steamers, in s beau tiful clear type, on fine white paper, and are faithful co pies of the originals?Blackwood's Magazine being an ex act foe simile of the Edinburgh edition. terms: For any one of tho four Reviews, $3 00 per annum.

(kneral Description of the. l\irkevHle llylrnfialhic Institute. The main building Is three stories high, standing back from the street aliout one hundred feet, with a semicircu lar grass plot iu front, and contains thirty to forty rooms. The ground* around the house are tastefully laid out with walks and planted with trees, shrubs, Ac. On the left of | the entrance to these grounds is a cottage containing four rooms, used by male patients as a bathing house, a ith every convenience for "packing,'' bathing, Ac.; on the right of the entrance, about two hundred feet distant, stands a similar oottago, used by the ladies tor similar purposes. In the rear of the Institute, at the distance of one hun dred feet, are three other cottages, some eighty feet apart. Oneof these is the laundry, with a hydrant at the door; the other two are occupied by the servants. The hydrant water is introduced into these cottages as well as into the main building, and all the waste water carried off by drains under ground. THE WATER WORKS Consist of a circular stone building, standing on the brow of a hill, surmounted bya iargecedar reservoir containing five huudred barrels, brought from a never-Calling spring of pur* oold water In the side of the hill, by "a hydraulic ram," a self-acting machine of cast Iron, that is kopt con stantly going, night and day, by the descent of the water from ti e spring. The surplus water is carried from the reservoir to a fountain in the water works yard, surround ed by weeping willows. In the first story of the water works Is a circular room, containing the dourhe bath, which is a stream falling from a height of about thirty feet, and oan l>e varied in sixe from half an inch to an inch and a half in diameter. Adjoining the douche room is a dressing room, with marble tables, Ac.; tho rising irmrhe (for the cure of piles, Ac.) is one of the most com plete oontrivances of the kind, being entirely under the control of the patient using tho same. There are many other appliances, which can be better understood by a personal examination. mar 24?

AM ERICAN TELEGRAPH MITUOI'OLXTAN Guards.?This is the title of a new company of youths in tliis city, between the ages of seventeen and twenty years. 1 he name of Kossuth, Guards was at first selected; but at a meeting on Friday evening, at which twenty-six members were present, as we learn from the Republic newspaper, they unanimously declared their preference for the name ot " Me tropolitan Guards," being desirous, as they say in their constitution, of "encouraging among young men a military spirit, and ot being pre pared to defend their homes." A committee was appointed on the subjcot of a uniform and arms. We would recommend for the lonner the ap-1 propriate street costume usually worn to church by genteel young men, and for the latter the pen, which is "mightier than the sword." We would also recommend that a good and comfort able drill-room be procured, thirty by fitty feet in size, with a ten-feet ceiling, and that they employ as their instructors in tactics several gentlemen to teach them history, geography, and astronomy; chemistry, geology, and natural history; meutal and moral science, grammar, rhetoric, and belles-lettres; or any other accom plishments adapted to render them of the high est usefulness to the city. We think we can guaranty to these young gentlemen an accepta ble lecturer for each of five evenings a week throughout the winter, and all without expense to them. We desire the safety of our whole coun try, and this is precisely the mode of securing U. We look to our young men for future pro tection, and would have them prepare them selves aright for the important work. We offer our suggestions in kindness and with respect. May they be so received. [Communicated.] The Organixatton of the House of E*p? reoentatlves. To the Editors of the American Telegraph: Gentlemen: Two or three communications have appeared in your paper in relation to the organization of the House of Representatives, | and a probable change of tho officers in the Senate. The writers evidently look more to the individual advancement of themselves, or some favorite candidate for the various offices, than an adherence to correct principles and sound policy. The officers of the House (for I shall only ' allude to it) should bo selected with a view | mainly to their qualifications for the various positions to which they will bo called, and not I to the advancement of any particular interest, j or with a view of giving this or that person a clerkship or any other place within the gift of said officers. As an old member of tho Democratic party, and one who desires that it Bhall have at least a temporary respite from the agitations which lor the last two years threatened its demolition as a national party, 1 desire to urge upon the minds of members what I conceive to be the true policy for them to pursue in reference to the organization. Three-filths of the officers are now Demo cratic; that is, the Clerk, Sargeant-at-Arm and Postmaster. The first two of these were elected by the last Congress, the Clerk in the fifth month, the Sargeant-at-Aruis in the first month of the first session, and the Postmaster was elected at the commencement of the 27th Congress; and such has been his popularity, because he has discharged his duty laithfully, that even a Whig Cougress declined a change. The question then is, Has the present Clerk and Sargeant-at-Arms discharged their duty with a similar fidelity t Aud if so, shall they be contiuued, or will thoir party remove theru to make place for others? These two gentle men, it must be recollected, were not caudidates fur the places they now hold, at the organization of tho last House of Representatives, but were, like Hercules, called in to the relief of their Democratio friends, when they found they could not succeed with their regular nominees. They are good and truo men, and have the confi dence of the entire party. Their removal is not sought on accouut of a faithless dis charge of their duty; or at least no such charge has as yet been made. The grounds urged for the dismissal of Judge \oungare, first, that, when elected, it was understood that ho would not be a candidate for re election; second, that ho did not remove the entire Whig force in his office; and lastly, "because (to use the l&ugunge of one of his opponents) he has been a ponbioner on his party all his lile." To tho first of these 1 have ouly to' say, that Judge Young deuies that any such promise was rnado by him, or by any frieud with hie authority; nor does he know that the condition of his election was placed upon any Biich grounds by tho friends of any person aspiring to the Clerkship at a future time. If so, let all the dlory be theirs, for I ntn sure he wants it not. To the second?that the efficient dis- i charge of the duties of his office required the retention of certain employees of the former Clerk ; aud in this ho has the written opinion and request of a majority of the Democratic members. To the last?that if the people of a State having seen proper to confer the highest honors in their gift upon one ot her sons is a sin, then is Judge Young not sinless, but must submit, with the best grace he can, to be termed a pensioner, but not an "invalid pensioner, as the sequel will show. Judge Young can appeal to Democratic mem- j bers of the House as to his standing in the Democratic party, from his odvent as a Jackson | elector, in 1828, to the present time, with testi mouials from the lamented Jackson, Grundy, Silas Wright, Polk, Calhoun, and a host of others, but must content himself with the ver dict which will be tendered by the living. Of Messrs. Glosbrenner and Johnson it is unnecessary to speak, for as yet they have no competitors. The manner in which they dis chargetheir duties is their commendation, and I presume both will be re elected unless another gentleman from Pennsylvania should bo electcd Clerk, then, of course, the Sargeant at-Arms will fall, and two men, faithful and true, will be sacrificed, in order that one may be elevated. This is not written from any unkind feeling toward Mr. Forney or any other gentleman? I f,,r him I have tho kindest feeling, and have always been his warm admirer, personally and politically?but because I think justice demands that the course and policy which 1 have marked i out should be pursued. An Owl-Tin* IhUlOCMT. JENNY GRAY. A New Kugliud Sketch. BY BLLKN U*liAU.VM. [Concluded.) The next day being Sunday, Mr. and Mrs. Thornton rode to church iu the old laahioned sleigh, while Dick drove the young ladies aud , Will in the double sleigh. Miss Gray was so , agreeable and entertainiug that the dismal young gentleman began to open his heart a little j for sunshine. His moody reserve wore away by degrees, aud by the tiiuo they arrived at the church steps, he mentally decided that he had been too hasty the previous eveuing. During service some part of the harness became disar ranged, so that the church was quite empty by the time he had repaired the mischief an^ driven round to the steps. But alas for comfort now ; whom should he see but Garlaud, standing earnestly talkiug to the young ladies, keeping them entirely absorbed by his pleasing conver sation. A cloud gathered ou Dick's brow in an instant. lie cast a half furtive glance from under his knit brows towards Miss Gray but she was completely occupied in listening. This was enough for our sensitive hero, his dreams were all over now, and he began to despise Garlaud, innocent though he wub of any inten tion to injnre him. In his vexation he nearly upset the sleigh, but the undaunted music teacher, unconscious of giving offence, talked on in the best of spirits, gallantly assisting the ladies into the sleigh, arranging the buffaloes with care, and then to crown his audacity, as Dick thought, jumped in himself and rode down to biB boarding-house with them. A few days passed, and the first disturber of young Thornton's peace of mind left anil went to the next house to board her allotted time. But instead of restoring his wonted oheerfulness and bringing back his old smiles, jokes and songs, he seemed all the more depressed and gloomy. The house appeared to him intolerably dull and lonely, his time hung heavily on his hands; he had no heart for business; his very countenance bore the expression of a moody, dissatisfied man. His mother was truly alarmed at his unwonted behaviour, and, attributing it all to the weakness of his nervous system, re commended valerton, as usual. W hat a remedy for his disease! So matters stood when it whs arranged that the two singing-schools should meet?the singers of Dalton riding over to WoodBtock, and joining their voices with their neighbors'. The evenings were bright moon light, the sleighing fine, and all the young peo ple were anticipating anxiously the appointed evening! The girls were busy preparing some thing a little extra to wear, and the beaux were employed in negotiations ft$r sleighs, horses, bells, etc., so that there mi&ht be conveyances for all. . Dick met knots of young men talking eagerly every time he passed through the village, and saw sigus of the approaching festivity with no very enviable feelings. A new sleigh, lustrous with fresh paint and gilding, was pointed out to him by some communicative individual, as being engaged for the occasion by the master himself. " So he'8 going to take Miss Gray," thought Dick, with a sigh, as he turned away, and a feeling of envy flashed through biB mind, as he suffered himself to think of the enjoyweat it would afford him to be in Garland's place. He had just turned his horse's head toward home ou the very morning when the important ride was to take place that following evening, when hearing his name called he looked around, and saw no other than Mr. Garlaud approach ing him. Dick gave him a very cold nod. ac companied by a look which might have told the schoolmaster, had lie not been too busy to study expression, that he was not regarded with much affection in that quarter. But intent ou hi* own affairs, he begged Mr. Thornton's pardon for detaining him, but wished that lie would oblige, him by taking a message to Miss Oray on his way home, as he was too much occupied to go over himself. Dick looked more majes tic, dignified, aud awful than ever, while Gar land went on. "Obligo me then," said he, after Dick had muttered something expressive of his willing uess, or rather unwillingness, to deliver the message, "by telling Miss Gray that Mr. Con nor, who is going to take bis niece, Miss Willis, to the singing school to-night, will call lor her This arrangement will be much more pleasant for her, than being crowded with a dozen others into a double sleigh, as she expecfcd to go at first. I would take her myself, he added, "but I can only procurc a single sleigh, and that will of course be fided with Lucy and myielf." A new light flashed over Dick's miud, his eye* brightened, ami he became wonderfully cordial in taking leave of Mr. Oarland. "What a duuee I have been !" thought he; "so it is Lucy, only Cousin Lucy ho admires. Why didn't I sec it before?" said he, as he called to mind certain blushings and stammerings, which had affected her wheucver Garland's name had been mentioned, and which he had been too much blinded to construe aright. Young Thornton rode toward home in the j best of spirits, delivered a certain message to Mfcs Grny, at which she turned "delightful, rosy red," and ho looked very much pleased aud very happy. As may be suppose'!, Mr Connor was informed that Miss Gray was en gaged, and everything looked bright to our hero "Richard was himself again." His spir its were a little damped by finding that his old friend, Aunt Clary, was favoring his mother with a visit that afternoon, and no doubt, rely ing on his constancy, auticipatcd a ride iu his ?leigh that evening. " Why, Richard, you are in haste, sua Squire Thornton, as Joe led his horse to the door; "perhaps Aunt Clary will spend the even ing with us; you can drive her home by and by; the evenings are almost as bright as day now." . , . ? "Father, I?I am going away tonight, stammered Dick. " Will must take 'old Sorrel ! and drivo her home." , , A meaning smile gathered about the squire ? mouth as he saw how affairs were turning out What the result of this rido to Woodstock was, may be inferred from various circum I stances. After the school closed in the "Thorn ton district," Dick seemed to have a great deal of business at B , the residence of some one?l can't say whom. Two or tim e times a week his horse's head was turned that way, and his horse's feet allowed no rest till be ar rived at a little white cottage, a very comfort able place, if we may judge by his unwilling- j ness to leave it. CHAPTER III. "Lucy, Lucy; come here," said Richard ! Thornton, one bright morning the following rmnir; "here is something tor you. 1 I ticv ran to the door and actually clapped her'hands with delight as she saw ^eaaUful j grey colt "all saddled and bridled, stand paw ing the ground. " How beautiful J" said Lucy, as she stroked the arched neck of the graceful creature. "What I a superb saddle! Are you really going to give it to mo ?" " Tbe colt is yours already, cox, you hare fairly won it. So take it, you little witc^, and you can ride to your beurt's content." " liut I luust give my treasure a name?yuu have always called it Little Gray, hut I shall christen it Jenny?Jenny Gray. You will not be angry, will you ? It will do no barm if there are two Jeutiy Grays." "Name her that by all means; it will recall such delightful associations. Two Jenny Grays! l'ray what tire you thinking about? In one short week your little colt will be the only one of that mime; the other will be changed, I hope, to Jenny Thornton." And so it was. FROM EUROPE. Arrival of the Atlantic. The steamer Atlantic arrived at New York yesterday morning, bringing Liverpool dates to the 12th instant, and sixty-four passengers. Among the latter is E. II. Thompson, bearer of despatches from London. The Atlantic encoun tered rough weather on tLe coast. Cotton has been very active, with a further advance of ?d.?the. sales averaging 12,000 bales daily; of which 4,000 bales are for spec ulation and export. The stock is gradually de creasing. The supplies of grain and flour continue light and unequal to the great consumption and ship ping. Prices are iu consequence firmer at an advance. The Manchester market was improving, and a more speculative inquiry existed. The London money market continued easy, and consols had further advanced, closing at 98J@98$. The steamer America arrived out on tbe 9th. Kossuth was making preparations for bis de parture on the 14th. He was everywhere re ceived with the greatest euthusiasm, and in his various addresses had been loudly applauded. The Times describes Kossuth's reception at Man chester as the most enthusiastic he has yet met with. The now Lord Mayor of London was inaugu rated on the 10th. It has been proposed that search be made for Sir John Franklin on tho coast of Asia. Letters from Paris state that o( tbe commit tee appointed to examine and report upon the bill proposed by the ministry for the repeal of the law of the 31st of May, only two are in fa vor of the bill. The Socialists are enraged at Louis Napoleon for having permitted the elec tions of representatives to bo made under the electoral law of May. The debate on the elec toral law will commence on Thursday. The Democratic Socialist Committee of Paris has declared that it will not take part in the elec tion of the 30th instant, in consequence of the law of the 31$t of May, which curtails the elec tive franchise, and recommends all republican , electors to purBue tbe same course. The Bourse is dull. Paris was perfectly tranquil. Iu Spain, the Madrid Cortes wore opened on the 6th itistunt by royal decrco. No speech was delivered on the occasion. The accouche ment of the queen was not expected to take place till December. The moderate party had completely triumphed at the municipal elec tions. Italy.?Accounts from Rome state that the French troops wire making new auditions to tbe fortifications of the Castle of St Augelo. It is stated that the French and English gov ernments have presented an explicit note to tbe Tuscan government, protesting against tho adop tion of Tuscany by Austria. A letter from Copenhagen says that tbe ques tion of tbe succession to the throne of Den mark hud beeu definitely settled. Another Arrival. The steamer City of Glasgow, from Glasgow, with dates to the 8th, also arrived at New York yesterday; but her news was anticipated by the Atlantic. The Confusions or a Dying Incendiary.? Unsuspected Parties Accused.?A despatch from Utica, New York, diiicd on Friday last, says: "In accordance with the law, II. 15. Conklin was to-day executed for arson. Throughout the dreadlul ot1 re monies attend <nt upon his execution, he manifested great penitence, and suid that be thought he had made ids peace with his Creator, lie made a full confession, which will not be published entire until after the arrest of tho rest of the gang. Many other persons are to be arrested, and will doubtless be indicted by the next pauelof the graud jury. Conklin was but tweuty-seven years of age at tbe time he committed tho crime for which he to day suffered the penalty of death. lie was six years ago married to the daughter of W. L. Crosby, who then kept the Westchester House, No. 10 Bowery, New York city. Ho leavos a wife aud three small children. In his confes sion, he mentions the mimes of some of the most wealthy and respectable citizens of this place, who furnishod him with money, and told him they would stand by him in any trouble which he might get into through them. Of tifty-four fires which occurred in this city during the past two years, he applied the incendiary torch to tbe following places: tbe First Baptist Church, James Hayor's house, Foster & Dickinson's drug store, Keyser's barn, Harrington's barn, and other places. Tho confession u fleets many of the most respectable men in this city." Those Pooh Hcsuahians 1?How they do scramble nnd bang them about! They must find it infinitely worse than the Turkish impris onment; that at least was quiet. Last night the inevitable Breakyournecksy and tho whole party were arrested by his Honor the Mayor, and confined in his wife's splendid drawing rooms until midnight, being meanwhile stuffed to repletion with boned turkey, (forgetting that Turkey h^l nearly boned tbein.) champagne ! that made them forget their campaigns, and I oysters that compensated them for the oj preg 1 sions of Oystria. These outrages upon inuo oent and unoffending foreigners are ungraceful and ought to be put a stop to.?Jv. F. Day Book. A Novel Grievance.?A correspondent com plains that the courteous nnd attentive clerk who receives paid letters at our post office, stamps them with such tremendous force as to endanger tbe contents. He has suffered by having " a diamond ring smashed into a cocked hat." If this is his only grievance, he may use the diamond as a brooch, and wear the hat. But tbe stamper must make an indelible im pression, and our correspondent should not send rings to females by the mails.?Hum,
