The Allied Fleet on the North Pacific. The attack on Petropo/ocski — t>ro Russian Vessels captured and death of Admiral Pries. The Siin Francisco journals give a detailed account of the engagement between the allied fleet and the lin-Man frigates Aurora and Diana, off the coast of Kamsclialku. The Traustript says,: “On the Ist and 4th of September an attack was made hy the combined tieeragainst the for tress ol I‘etiojiolovski. The English vessels ot war comprised the F resident, the Fi/ut. and the Virago, and the'French the Fu te, Euridice, anil the Obligado. The action was a very severe one, the English vessels tiring 3000 bails. Two ol the Russian batteries were destroyed, a ;d two crippled. The loss on the side of the latter was very heavy, but is not ascertained, ut the Eng lish and French forces, si.vty-lour men fell du ring the assault. The Russian frigate Aurora, of forty-four guns, and the Diana, of twenty gnns,were.moucecl inside and protected by sand bunks, behind which they operated us batteries beyohd the reach of the French and English. One of the English vessels suffered severely in the fight, having lust Iter foremast, but the fleet is expected to arrive in the course of a few days, and we suppose will be recruited by the addition of the A mphU iFr a 1 'l'rincomalee, with the French corvette Art enure, now cruising on our coast. The combined fleet of five British and four French will then probably proceed to I’etropolovski, and complete the work. When leaving the port ami a short distance outside, the Russian merchantman Sitka was captured by the allied forces and sent to Van couver. A Russian supply .vessel was also taken and burnt. Throughout the seige we learn that the Russians fought with great courage, as the result proves. The information afforded in re gard to the details of the battle, is however meagre and unsatisfactory. It does not appear that the British and French have come oil with any very distinguished honor, but they may fare better on a second trial. The defences of I’e tiopolovski undoubtedly render its capture quite a formidable undertaking. Tbe Fori is a ship of (i() gnus, the Evridice of 30 guns, and Obligado ot 30 gnus. The Russian ship Sitka was captured on the Bth of Septem ber. Site carried JO guns, a crew of 33 men, and had 25 passengers. The crew and passen gers were taken on board the Furl and Euridice, and llit? ship was taken charge of by the Pre„J drnt, Pique, and steamer Virago, to be conveyed to Vancouver’s Island. The Filka was loaded with provisions lor the Russian settlements, and had touched at Ayan, where she discharged part ol her cargo, and was bound thence to I’etropo lovski, when she fell in with the fleet and sur rendered at discretion, declining to engage in a conflict with the odds of seven to one. li is re potted by the JLnridice that one American vessel was lying at I’etropolovski, (probably the A'u- Ur.) The death of tbe English Admiral .Price oc curred on the 31st August, and was not caused by a wound received in tbe seige, but, as we gailier the fad#, from the discharge of a pistol he was picking up. There is no reason to sup pose that the act .was premeditated, and the con clusion is that the unfortunate occurrence was purely accidejitiU. .Capt. F rederick, of the Am /illi/i ike, succeeds ui command of the fleet. A bearer of dispatches for England has arrived ou the Fort, and will leave on I tie steamer of the middle of tbe month. The French fleet have been twenty-six days from Pelropolovski.” The Russian flag yet waves over I‘etropolov ski. The allied fleet will probably return after recruiting, and make another attack upon it. Judicial Decision on a uai> Dinner. —The late Judge Dooly, of Georgia, was remarkable for bis wit: “ At one place where he attended court, he was not well pleased with Ids entertainment at the tavern. On the first day of the court a hog, under the name of a pig, had been cooked whole and laid upon the table. No person attacked it. It was brought the next day and the next, and treated with the same respect; and it was on the table on the day on which the coltrl ad journed. As the boardi rs finished their dinner Judge Dooly rose from the table, and in a sol emn manner addressed the clerk : "Mr Clerk,” said he, “dismiss the hog upon his recognizan ces until the first day of next court. He has at tended so faithfully during the present term that I don’t think it will be uecessaty to lake any security.” “ Keep tuirows Counsel.” — There is a deal of truth in this proverb ; “ Never trust a married man who loves his wife, with a secret, for he will tell her, and she w ill toll her sister, and her sister will tell anybody and everbody.” Latest Know Nothing Development. —The token of recognition has finally been discovered by a close observer. When one Know Nothing wishes to recognize another, lie closes one eye. makes an 0 with his thumb and forefinger, and places his nose through it, which being interpre ted reads — •• Eye ■ nose O.” , “ I knows Nothing. Indian Convention. —All the Indians of the district extending from the Moquelnmne to the Mariposa Rivers, held a “pow-wow,” at the Bay State Bauch, on the margin of the North Fork of the Calevetas River, during the last week. The Calrvern* Chronicle stales th it among the tribes assembled, the Tuolumne Indians were consid ered the tallest and most active, but the Maripo sa Indians are tbe best marksmen. A pole about sixty feet high was erected on the ground, having a small clump of brush lied at the top, almost the size of the. “ liberty cap,” as usually represented. The Mariposa tribe alone succeed ed in planting their arrows in this target, and it was well filled with their shafts. At this Grand Council it was suppised there were from lioo to BUO Indians present. rr 3 a ti, >sy man weut iirto a Sunday School, and tdra few moments listened very attentively to the questions propounded to the scholars, hut, beinganxious to show his knowledge of •‘scrip ture" and doctrine, he stood up, leaning on the front of the pew with both hands, “ I’arson 1! .’’said lie. ‘ask me some of them bard ques-shuna.” “ Uncle John,” said the parson, with a solemn face and in a drawling tone, “don't you know yon are in the bonds of sin, and the depths of iniquity?” “ Yes’ir, and in the gall of bitterness too. Ask me another ques sbun.” CF“ A clergyman at an afternoon service, was asked to read a notice for a woman’s rights lec ture ; which he did in this wise:—“ At half past six o’clock, at the school hoase in the first dis trict, a luu will attempt to cruic ! The Sonora Tragedy. —The following ver sion of ibis affair we clip from liie Union Demo crat : Bloody Affray. —On Monday last our town was thrown into an unwonted commotion, by an ad ray of the most bloody character, the par ticulars of which are as follows- It appears that a deadly feud has existed for some time be tween .lames G. Lyons and M. 13. Duffield, neighboring rancheros. residing a few miles from this place, on the Emigrant road. Mr. Duf t'leld came (lows dost week and swore out a warrant for Lyon’s arrest: and while the dep uty sheriff. iCapt. Amyx, was on his way to his residence for that purpose, Lyons, with two of Iris friends, made his appearance here. Meeting Duffield on Monday morning at the City Hotel, he addressed him a few words calculated to lead to a.colUsiou, and placing hisiiaud in his bosom, as was supposed by Duffield for the purpose of d owing a weapon, he (Duffield) di'ctf his re volver and fired, wounding Lyons in the hand ; previous to his firing, however, he was shot at Iron' b; ind by Mr. Tim Hazleton, the friend of Lyons. Lyons, afu r his wound, attempted to to getaway, but was shot twice by Duffield be fore he succeeded—-Ottce in the back, the ball passing through the t>ody, and the second time through the fleshy part of the arm. Upon turn ing round and discovering Hazleton in the act of firing, he too was shot, the ball entering the upper part of the I east, and passing out through the shoulder - blade. Duffield gave himself up, and, alterau examination, was discharged. The wounded men are in a fair way of recovery. Lyons, on Thursday,was taken to jail for safe keeping, a true bill having been found against him for the murder of a Frenchman, last spring, by the late Grand Jury, and a bench warrant is sued for his arrest. Where is the Vallejo Line? —One of the latest unsettled questions ia Sun Francisco In been raised by the late decision of the United Stales Land Coinniissioners.conlii niing the claim of the city to the f’ucbio land to the extent oi the Vallejo boundaries. Since then the question has been, where is the Vallejo line ? The Times and Transcript closes an article upon the ques tion with these conclusions: We now undertake to say, that the boundary lines of the i’uebla lands, as confirmed by the majority of the Hoard of United States Land Commissioners, will be as follows: Commenc ing at a little cove on the bay of San Francisco, a short distance to the east of Fort Point, near the wharf —thence running weslwardly it will pass over the point of land known as Fort Point, leaving the Fort to the north ward, and strike the beach outside and a lillle to the south of the southern head—thence along the seashore to the southermost point of Point Lohos —thence in a right line, passing near what is defined on the map as the Plaza of the Mission Dolores, to the Mission Estuary at the point where Tracy street strikes said Estuary—thence by said Estuary out and into Mission flay. This, it is believed, will iuclude both the places known ns the Cantnales and Geulil, but if it should be found that they fall to the south of the line drawn from the Lone Mountain to the Estuary at the point above des ignated, tbeu there will be a divergence to the southward, so as to include those points. These lines will include a portion of the Mis sion Dolores; all of what is distinctively known as tiro-city of San Francisco, —except some ol the aSoutlj Beach Water Lots, and the Presidio. The fortifications on Fort Point will be outside. A careful examination of the documents and testimony will lead to the conclusion, that such we most probably the views of the majority ol the Hoard., and we have little doubt that such will be their decision. Capital Agitation. —The Sacramento Union. in au article on the '‘plan af operations.” says “ that the political and speculation parties, who are at work in the dark to bring about another remuval, have hud a large number of copies ol lliedictum of Judges Heydeufeldt ami Wei's —ii is no legal decision—printed, and are engaged in sending them to all the members elect to the Legislature. Someone connected with the Su preme Court has also issued notices that San Jose is iheseat of government for the State.” — The Union these political speculators includes an informal meeting of members of the Legislature at San Francisco, during Christmas week, upon which occasion they hope to be able to perfect their plans.” Important Decision. —We publish this morn ing. says the Alta, an important and interesting opinion of the Supreme Court, delivered by Justice Heydeufeldt, in relation to the rights ol the Slate Judiciary. The conclusions of the opinion are: 1. That no cause can be transferred from a State Court to any Court of the United Slates. 2. That neither a writ of error nor appeal lies to take a case from a State Court to the Supreme Court ot iho United Stales. These propositions, which are somewhat start ling. as exposition of States Eights, may be re cognized as of the ultra Calhoun school. We believe, however, that though frequently dis cussed by political writers and politicians, they never have been declared from the Bench, and acted upon as tetlled law. except by the Judicia ry of Virginia, and, if we are not mistaken, of Georg ia. Tornado at Louisville. — A terrific tornado passed over the city of Louisville on Sunday, Sept. 3d. The Fourth Presbyterian Church was blown down during the service. Twenty-five of the congregation were killed instantly, and a large number wounded. Numerous othei buildings were unroofed and blown down. The following is a list of the killed: —Mrs. Vildabee and three children, Mr. Taylor and child, Mr. Godfrey, Mrs. Salisbury, Miss Headly, John McGowan, Mr. Sweeney, Mrs. Martin, (wife of John N. Martin, saddler) Mrs. Wicks, (niece of Mrs. Martin) Mr. Harbour, Mr. McClelland, Mr. R. Davis, (a resident of New Albany) and Mr. Mcßride and child, It is thought one or two others were killed whose names have not been learned. Fully one hundred buildings in Louisville were unroofed, and otherwise greatly injured. The storm passed over that part of the city lying between Fifth and Twenty-first streets A splendid block of four story houses recently erected on the north side of Main, be tween Eighth and Ninth streets, was completely destroyed) and two or three men, it is supposed, axe buried in the ruins. These buildings were built at an expense of SIB,OOO.

The sojourners at our city hotel* nre familiar with the modest tone in which the words "New York Herald.” ••Tribune," "Times.’’"Baltimore Sun.” “Intelligencer,” ‘‘Union.” &c., fall u|>oa their ears from a respectable elderly gentleman in the newspaper line. At break of day you may find him at the Railroad Depot, with hi* bundle of these “ maps of busy life at break fast time ho is at the hotel ready to exchange his commodities fur the ready cash : and again as midnight draws near, you will still find him pursuing the even tenor of his way, pressing his sales. We have observed him for many year* going through this regular routine. Many won der if he ever sleeps. If “ eternal vigilance is the price of liberty,” he is entitled to the largest that maybe had. A cariosity is often manifested to know bis history. Some say that he ha* by dial of such untiring industry and perseverance laM up something handsome for a rainy day. One morning last week, ns the Hon. Lewis D. Campbell, of Ohio, was passing from the breakfast room at the "National” with his morn ing mail, this veteran newsvender met him at the foot ot the (light of steps near the office. His eye caught the title of Cincinnati Gazette” to a paper in Mr. C.’s hand, and, with a peculiar ex pression, he remarked— "Ah, the old Cincinnati Gazette !” Mr. Cambell halted, observing, "You have .it not in your package ?” " No: hut 1 took it once.” Mr. Campbell. “ When ?” “ In 1828, when Charles Hammond was edi; or. and I was in the firm of Carrington A Weils, wholesale merchants.

Toss or Meat and Diiink Used ev One Man. —Some genius has perpetrated the follow ing calculation :—I have been married 32 years, during which time I have received from the hands of my wife three cups of coffee each day, two at morning and one at night making about 35.040 cups ol a half pint each, nearly 70 bar rels of 30 gallons each, weighing 17,520 pounds, or nearly nine tons weight. Yet from that pe. riod I have scarcely varied in weight .myself from 100 pounds. It will therefore be seen that I have drank, in coffee alone, 218 times my own weight. lam not much ol‘ an eater, yet I pre sume I have consumed about 18 ounces a dav, which makes 5,800 pounds, or 10 oxen. CM Hour I have consumed in 32 years about 50 bar rels. For 20 years of this time I drank two wine-glasses of brandy each day, making 900 quarts. The port wine, Madeira, whiskey punch, &c., 1 am notable to count, but thev are] not large. When we take into account all the vegetables in addition, such as potatoes, pears, asparagus, strawberries, cherries, pears, peaches, raising, ifcc., the amount consumed by an individual is enormous. Now, my body lias been renewed more than four times in 32 years; and taking it for granted that the water of which [ have drank acts merely as a dilutant, yet taken together, I conclude I have consumed in 32 years about the weight of I ICO men of 100 pounds each. Fate of Count Hassoukt and the Expedi tionists ! —Ur. Francis Canton, who arrived this morning from La I’nz, in the Mexican brig Deslerrado, informs us that on the 7tb of last August, ho left Guymas, and that on that day Count Rassouet had been convicted and senten ced to be >bot. The trials of the remainder of the officers had been deferred until after the ex icution of the Count, when they were to be im mediately proceeded with. One hundred and seventy of the privates iff the Expedition had been despatched by the Governor, in two ves sels, for San Dias, where they were to be set at liberty. Capt. Deters, who commanded the ship Chal lenge, liad also been kept in separate and close confinement by the authorities, and bad beeu besides, closely guarded. His trial was also soon to take place. —[AVw*. fob Oct.

Thu next circle exhibits Uie odd and even hours; the even hours are designated by a bold figur and the odd hours by ones.

Madame Sostag’s Daughter. —An English paper reports that the daughter largely inherits the personal elegance, beauty of voice, and re fined culture which made Sontag a standard of artistic excellence. Her appearance on the stage was purposed, we believe, within a year or two, and the world may yet renew in a daughter's attainments, that satisfaction and de light which were ever derived from the moth? er’s professional exertions.
