The rumort of an Invasion of Maryland by
the way of Downtvilla is not believed. The
last report from Ibo rear shows Ihit the report
is unfounded.
It was reported In the city, lost evening, that
there was small rebel force or cavalry about
seven miles north of Fredericksburg. Also,
that there was a force consisting of about 0 000
infanty und about 2,000 cavalry, and some r
artillery, at Warrenton. It Is said that Gen
SUM drove the enemy out of Thoroughfare Gap

an Institution has Just ree'lved quite a valuablo
addition to Its collections of curiosities,
which consists of a mummy and several
skulls, Ac, from Patagonia, South America.
They were forwarded by A. Rled, M. D.
of Valparaiso, who accompanied them by a
highly interesting letter, from which we make
the following extract !
The accomnanvtng female mummv was
found about two months ago on the west coast
of Patagonia, in latltnde 41 south, near a
point marked on the charls, "Refojio Bay." A
considerable uumber of human skeletons and
detached human bones were discovered, occu
pying a species of cavern on the faco of the
rooks that bind the coast, at an elevation of
about one hundred feet above high-water mark,
and at no great dlstanco from the beach. Some
of tho skeletons retain part ol tho balr, Integu
ments and soft tissues, in various stages of de
composition. Tbo body under consideration
was, however, the only one In a state approach

hitherto been procuredtwo are In tho Nation

ten years ago, to the musuem nt Rstlsboo, In

Inches, which Is abovo the height of the native
residents of tho couutry. "The entire Individ

to n race superior In bone nod murclo to Its
neighbors, as well as decendants."
Of Ihe skulls, one belonged to nn Indian of
tbo "Pamyra," Ihe northeastern frontier of
Patagonia; another was found about 61 miles
from the Chlllian settlements, and Is a singular
specimen. Two others are those of the Aran
canlan Indians, win were kilted In tbe
late collision ot these tribes with tho Chilli

Tile "Ucvlew'Ms. Gladstone.
The Lordon Jievttw does not cons'der Mr.
Gladstone's posltlcns worthy of an "elaborate
argument," but drives him Into a corner by
asking a few pointed questions. Repeating
air. uiuustono s position, viz : "mat in tne cs
labllshment of the Independence of tho South
lies the best hope for the extinction of slave
ry," it applies lo it what It calls "i tbort but
diclslvo le-st. ' thus : "Do tho Southern states
men who are fightlcg for secession believe th it
independence will m.hleve tbo extinction ot
slaviry? Does Jellerson Davis or Mr. Glad
stone know best what Is Intended to be, and
what is likely lo be, tbo result of Southern
success t II the Union afforded, us Mr. Glad
stone thinks, tbo best security for slave prop
el ty, why aro the slave proprietors so deter
mined to get lid of the Union t If secession Is
to bring about emancipation, why are the slave
owners secessionists . ine litvitw ratner un
kindly udds : ' In bis next offer elir.ner oration,
we hope Mr. Gladstone will attempt an answer
to these inquiries."
Even Mr. Gladstone himself seems lo have
become u little alarmed at the positive and
partial language he used at Newcastle, and In
a subsequent speech nt another town he modi
fled It to some extent, and gave us a gentle
" pat on the back." llu said:
"There is no doubt, 1 am afrald.it wo watch
what has taken placo in this country and Eu
ropemere is no aotiDt, as tar as experience
tbrows light on tho subject and, indeed, on
the grounds of reasoning and anticipation
there Is no doubt tbat what has taken placo In
America has ope rated us n serious blow, and a
serious and grave disadvantage in Europe to
the nriwM,. f rlni.nles f won't .hj, merely
of liberal principles in the sense ot party, but
even ot tboso constitutional principles In firm
ly embracing which all parties In this country
nn, hnnnflv nfrrnfiV"
There seems somethlnz verv ' muddled" In
this paragraph; perhaps tho leporter was to
blame perhaps It was another "after dinner"
oration, mr.uiaastone proceeded, rather more
distinctly, as follows :
"I do not think It possible to watch the
course and current ol opinion, and tho tone of
puouo declaration as to tne action of our In
stitutions, without seeing that a very unluvor
ab e icllitence an influence unfavorable to
freedom has been strengthened by the un
happy experience ol what we may call Ame
rican democracy. I earnestly trust that Eng
lishmen will be upon their guard against that
reuciion. (Hear, hear.) If It bo truo that tho
Institutions of America have not produced. In
this time of most deadly trial, all tbo fruits of
an meal existence, yet, let ns recollect that at
any rate, lor two or tbreo generations ol men,
that Constitution to watch the immortal Wash
ington gave his sanction, and which was de
vised by ablo statesmen and other state-men
havo rarely taken part In publio ufialra that
Constitution has served, at all events, to keep
watch and ward over tho advancing fortunes
of nations, and under Its inltuenco has grown
from infancy, not to manbetid only, but to a
maunoou oi gigantic uimensions ; ana in sym
pathy with our brethren across tbe waters, If
tbat deadly strain has come which must rend
ut last into two portions that great community,
It has arrived not altogether in consequence
ol tbo action of principles purely political, but
tne root oi too atmcutiy is taici in social dis
cordance, and what may be called Incompati
bility of social temper In a broad difference ol
institutions ; ami, to speau plainly, In tbe ex
Istence of that saddest social calamity of slave'
ry, which was a legacy from England to Attic
rica." (ABplause.)
If Mr. Gladstone bad made this speech, uud
not tho former one, be would not have lost, as
he has now done, thu respect ot hla "brethren
across the waters," and, 1 think, tbo conlldenoe
oi his own people.
