C, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1861. No. 61. I, PRICE ONE CENT. EFFECTS OF SECESSION IN FLORIDA. A gentleman who arrived recently from Florida has called at the Timet office, nnd fur nished us with some interesting items of news. Ho corroborates the accounts that we have from time to time published in regard to public opinion at the South. Secession in Florida was not effected by the vote of the people ; on the contrary, every effort was made to prevent an honest vote being taken. The Legislature, which directed that a Convention should be chosen, only allowed five days to intervene be tween the notice and the election. The conse quence was, that the country people, who were opposed to secession, had no opportunity to vote, and the people of the towns had it all their own way. No one in Florida entertains o, doubt that a majority of property holders are Union and conservative; for a proposition made in the Convention to allbw only property holders to vote, was not entertained for a mo ment. Tho secessionists of Florida nre thoso who havo everything to gain and nothing to lose; and, for the present, they rule supreme. As an instance of the spirit that prevails, it is related that a Floridian, within the last month, entered the store of a Northern man, and stabbed him four times, without any provoca tion whatever. Rushing out into the street, with the dripping weapon in his hand, he shout ed, "This Is the blood of G d d n Yankee: let us serve them all sol" For this brutal murder, the perpetrator was elected to the Florida Convention. Our informant, though himself an owner of negroes, and an advocate of the institution of slavery, was twice fired at for wearing a Union cockade. A man in Florida who onenlr professes loyalty to the Union is called an abolitionist, and is lucky if he. escape being lynched. Tho legitimate effects of secession have al ready made their appearance in Florida. Poor people are beginning to feel hungry. Pork is S30 a barrel, flour $13, corn $1.73, and oats $1. Establishments which, a few weeks ago, had eight clerks, havo now only one. Small towns which were thriving have been suddenly checked in their growth, nnd have a desolate appearance. All who can arc making prepa rations to come North. Of course, no Northern born people will willingly remain at the South after secession, for loyalty is still to them a moral obligation, and a word of some meaning. But there is nothing singular in the fact that every one, with any property to save, should be eager to reach some place where life and prop erty can be secured to them. In Florida, pro prietors have already been taxed $11 per head lor their negro property, and negroes which sold for $1,100 each six months ago would not now fetch $500. When our informant left, there was nothing in the State Treasury ; and there is every probability that secession will ultimately throw Florida back into a wilder ness, and make the State a suitable domain for Seininoles and Camanches. N. 1". Tribune. The Millcdgeville Recorder thus states the nccouut between Georgia and the United States: The United States to Georgia, Ur.

By Fort Pulaski, and other U. S. property in Georgia, high estimate .... 6,000,000 Balance duo Georgia 30,000,000 Judge Stouy Can't he Seceded Frou. A queer scene took place last week in the Court ot (quarter sessions, a. u., juuge juonroo pre siding. The Attorney General, Mr. Milep, pro posed to quote an opinion on an important le gal point from Chief Justice Story. The coun sel lor the prisoner, Mr. Wilkinson und Col. Simons, thousbt there was nn important ad judication on that point made by a judge in their own oiuic. lue Aivoruey ucuerai huiu uintue thought the opinions ol Judge Story entitled to weight, though ho was a United States judge. Judge Monroe, in deciding, thought they could not secede from the legal opinions of Judge Story, nny more than from those of Lord Eldon. The Mr. Wilkinson here mentioned is the law part ner of C. G. Memminger. Pbeciods Metal Productions. The value of tho production of precious metals, per an num, in different countries, is as follows : United States, $80,000,000 ; Great Britain, $100,000,000; Russia, $25,000,000; France, $15,000,000; Austria, $2,500,000; Prussia, $20,000,000 ; Belgium, $10,000,000 ; Spain, $7,500,000 ; Sweden ami Norway, $5.000,000 ; Saxony, $1,500,000 ; Italy, $2,500,000 ; Swit zerland, $390,000 ; Australia itself produces $41,250,000; Mexico and Chili, 845,000,000 ; the rest of South America, $7,500,000. Ac cording to these figures, the annual precious metal crop of Europe, America, and Australia, approximates $380,000,000. The Lagrange Ula.) Reporter of the 25th says : "the deea is done I Uur rights are not se cured! Wo have been fifed and drummed nnd toted out of the Umon. We still love the Union, We lovo our old Government, because it was established by the strong arms and tho blood of as true men as tho world ever saw. We never did have any war to make on the Government, but always regarded it as a price less inheritance bequeathed to us by our revo lutionary fathers, and wo have adored this Union of the States, because that Union was formed and cemented by thoir blood. Wo have given them uptoour enemies I We have now left tho sacred chambers of our fathers to the desecra tion and pollution of our enemies. The action of Georgia may be right, and it may be wrong." A chemist of Lyons announces that the coloring matter of any treo may be known by the color of its fruit. Several ot the new vege table dyes havo been discovered by this simple process. A Btupid practical joke was played at Phila delphia on Thursday. The coroner was notified to hold an inquest on tho body of nn unknown man, who had been frozen to death, nnd sev eral prominent citizens were informed that the body of a friend was lvinir at a certain public house. On going there, it was found to be a man modeled in snow. A grand jury down South ignored a bill against a huge negro for stealing chickens, and before discharging him from custody, the judge bade him stand reprimanded ; he concluded as follows : " You may go now, John, but (shaking his finger at him) let me warn von never to appear hero again." John, with delight beaming in his eyes, and with a broad grin displaying a beautiful row of ivory, replies), " I wouldn't bin here this time, judge, only tho constable he fotch me." Roman Statistics. Official documents just published at Rome, supply the following statis tics respecting that city for tho year I860 : " The number of parish churches is stated to be 64; families, .17,708; bishops, 34 ;' priests, 1,417 ; monks and friars, 2,390 ; nuns, 2,031 ; students in ecclesiastical seminaries and col leges, 886 ; residents in the apostolic palaces, 884. The total number of inhabitants in 1860 was 184,049. of whom, 96,293 were males, and 87,756 females, showing an increase of 1,404 on the preceding year. The ratio ot births to the whole population was 1 to 28 ; of deaths 1 to 29 1 of marriages, 1 to 129. Tho Jewish population, which is not included in the above, numbers 4,468 persons, of whom 2,248 aro male, and 2,220 females." Celestial Ionorance. After Prince Kung, next brother to the traditional " brother of the Sun nnd Moon," had signed tho treaty with Great Britain, he paid a visit to Lord Elgin, attired in a satin robe, with the Imperial dragon embroidered in gold on the skirt, and smaller animals of tho same denomination creeping over his breast, shoulders, and back. After imbibing some Heidsick he became chatty, and confessed, that until the present visit of the rJnglish the Chinese did not know that India was a province of Great Britain ; and tjiat he, in common with his countrymen, had believed that Englnnd was so small an island that half ol the population were, compelled to live in ships. Cardinal Wiseman and the Pope. At the same time that Mr. Henessy, M. P., pledged the Catholics of Great Britain to pay a yearly tribute of one million Roman dollars to his Holi ness, Cardinal Wiseman, in n letter to the Holy Father, expressed his sorrow that in spite of his utmost exertions to exact contributions, he met with poor success. The Cardinal further states, that while be receives from all persons assurances that they will maintain the spiritual authority of the head of the church, yet the ut most repugnance is manifested to pay money to be expended in armaments to continue the political thraldom of Italy. The Cardinal also expresses tho opinion that, in the present mel ancholy position of affairs, it would conduce to tho best interests of his Holiness, were ho to come to an understanding with Victor Eman uel. In olden times, women were prevented from marrying until they had spun a set of bed fur niture, and hence they were culled spinsters until they were married.

Rev. Dr. Porter, Chelsea, (Tenn.,) has dis covered that a superior quality of gas can be mude of cotton seed, with the addition of a little rosin. Ilia church and dwelling are lit up with it at a trilling cost. The gas is prepared by a simple process. A Servant Starved to Death, Mr. R. D. Mitchell, a retired naval surgeon, living in Henley, England, has been committed for trial for starving his female servant, named Clark, to death. She was removed from his residence to the workhouse in a state of horrid filth, and so reduced by starvation that, though twenty four years old, she weighed only fifty pounds. The effect of the intensely cold weather upon tho lions and tigers, in the London Zooloaical Gardens, has been very severe. Tho magnifi 'cent Nubian lion, which has been twelve years in the Gardens, was found dead in the morn ing, having been perfectly well tho afternoon before ; a post mortem examination showed that he died absolutely of cold. His mnte gave birth, two days after, to a still-born cub, accel erated by grief for the loss of her mate. Not withstanding the great care taken, thero has been a large mortality among tropical birds, monkejB, and antelopes. Tho hippopotami are tho only tropical animals which have been un affected by tho cold. Description ok Love. Love is like the devil, because it torments ; like heaven, because it wraps tho soul in bliss ; like salt, because it is refreshinu ; like paper, becauso it often sets one on fire ; like sugar, because it is sweet ; like a rope, becauso it is often the death of a man: like a prison, because it makes a man miserable ; like wine, becauso he is hero to-day nnd gone to-morrow ; like a woman, becauso there is no getting rid of her; like a ship, be cause it guides ono to the wisliedfor port ; liko a willo'-th'-w'np, becauso it often lends one into a b g ; liko a fierce courser, becauso it often runs away with one j like the bite of a mad dog or the kiss of a pretty woman, because they both make a man run mad ; like a goose, because it is silly; like a rabbit, because there is nothing liko it. In a word, it is like a ghost, becauso it is liko everything ; and liko noth ing, often talked about, but nevor seen, touched, nor understood, Tho other day an agent of tho Now York and Erie Railroad Company was putting up one of the finely illuminated cards of the road in the office of the St. Charles Hotel, New Or leans, when a fire-eater came up, saying : " The New York and Erie railroad I Yes I Through broad gaueo route I Yes I Let's see, I think New York gave about fifty thousand majority for Lincoln,' saying which, he gave tno card two or three kicks, of course destroying it. The agent mildly remonstrated, but a crowd soon collected, and the, landlord informed him it would not be safe for him to remain longer in the house. He collected his baggage, and ' left the city as speedily as possible. PROSPECTUS OF THE WEEKLY NATIONAL REPUBLICAN. Washington, D. C, December, I860. Tho undersigned hare commenced the publica tion, In this city, of a weekly newspaper, called the National Republican. It is printed on a large sheet, 27 by 42 Inches, and Is furnished at the low prices stated below. It will contain all the original matter of tho dally National Republican, with the exception of local news not Interesting to country subscribers. It will give full reports of the proceedings of Congress, and of the other departments of the National Government. It will contain all the news of the day, foreign and domestic, markets, Ac, 4c, as well as an original correspondence from all parts of the country. Tb miscellaneous department will re ceive special attention, and, In all respects, the effort will be made to establish the character of the National Republican as a family newspapkr. In politics, the paper will be Republican, sus taining the Incoming Administration of Mr. Lin coin, hut disclaiming, h'owever, any pretension to be the organ of the President elect. There Is no other Republican paper In the District of Columbia, or In the vicinity of it, and it is believed that recent events have opened to such a paper an important sphere of useful ef fort. The time has come, when the actual ad m'nlstrationof the Government upon Republican principles will exfilode tho misrepresentations which have made those principles so distasteful to the South. But It Is not only here, and In this vicinity, that the projectors of the National Republican hope to make it useful. To the whole country they offer a journal which will discuss national politics from a national standpoint, and which will never be swerved from patriotic duty by any overpowering pressure ol local interest.
