PATAPSCO FEMALE INSTITUTE, MARYLAND
rpiHE TRUSTEES of the Patapsco Female
A Institute announce to the public that the additional
buildings and improvements commenced by them a year ago
in accordance with the subjoined resolutions, are now com
plete. These improvements have not been made with a
view to increase the school, hut for the greater conveni
ence and comfort of the usual number of pupils.
The new chapel is a handsome and most appropriate
structure, for the exclusive use of the inmates of the In
stitute, and in all its arrangements it is most complete. It
is furnished with a new organ of fine construction and ex
cellent tone.
The administration of Mr. Archer for the past year and
the present has been attended with unprecedented suc
cess, and the Trustees feel themselves fully justified in
recommending the Institute to the continued favor of the
South.
It has pre-eminence in healthfulness. The pupils avoid
ing, on the one hand, the debilitating efT.-cts of a Southern
climate, and on the other the rigors of the North, have
few of the interruptions incident to both these climates.
It is sufficiently near to the city of Baltimore to enjoy the
benefits of a city without any of its evils.
As an Institution of learning it has the advantage of a
full organization, a resident chaplain, and a corps of ac
coiuplished teachers and professors, called together from
time to time in the long experience of those having charge
of the Institute.
The Trustees of the Patapsco Female Institute, having
been duly notified by Mrs. Lincoln Phelps of her intention
to resign her office of principal at the close of the present
school year, have elected Robert 11. Archer as her succes
sor. The eminent success of Mr. Archer in conducting for
many years a School for Young Ladies in the city of Balti
more, entitles him to our confidence as a person peculiarly
qualified to maintain the present high standing, and insure
the permanent prosperity of the Institution; and with this
view we are engaged in the erection of another building in
addition to the present extensive accommodations of the
Institute.

EVERY LOT OFFERED FOR SALE REGULARLY
ANALYZED BY DBS. .lAS. HIGGIXS AND CHARLES
BICKELL AND FULLY WARRANTED.
In introducing this HIGHLY AUTHENTICATED
FERTILISER to the agriculturist of the United States,
for the year 1853, tve forbear any lengthened remarks, as
their intelligence is already informed of tile value of
BONES TREATED WITH SULPHURIC ACID, producing
the bi phospate of lime, and yielding SOLUBLE PHOS
PHOR 10 AOID, the efficient aud indispensable nutri
ment of plants.
As many preparations are offered to the puhlio styled

of the agricultural community, surrendered up to Drs.
Higgins and Bickell the entire scientific feature or the
RHODES' SUPER PHOSPHATE OF LIME, and every lot
offered for sale is regularly analyzed by them and reported
to the public, which we conceive will be a proper caution
to the agricultural community to protect them from impo
sition in the many spurious articles now offered in the
market.

LATER FROM MEXICO.
PRESIDENT JUAREZ AXD IDS CABINET EN
j ROUTE FOR NEW ORLEANS—PROGRESS
OF THE CIVIL WAR.
| Our advices from Vera Cruz are to the 12tli, anil
j from Colina to the Bth inst.
We learn by a passenger who arrived in the Mo
sps Tavlor, that on the 11th instant the steamer
| John E. Stephens put into the port of Manzanillo,
j Mexico, and there took on board President .Juarez
i and his Cabinet: that on arriving at Aspinwall tliev
took passage for New Orleans, intending to proceed
from thence to Vera Cruz, where his Government
is now established under Zatnora.
On the evening before the arrival of the steamer
at Panama, an entertainment was given them by
Samuel Brannan, Esq., of San Francisco. Presi
dent Jauarez made a very interesting speech, in
which he expressed himself highly gratified with
the attention shown him, and in the course ofhis re
marks highly eulogized our Government and its ef
ficient head. He was followed by his secretaries
who all appear to be men of a high order of in
tellect.
The following are their names and the ollices
they held :
Jieniso Juarez—Constitutional President of the
Republic.
Melchor Ocampo—Minister or Relations, Govern
ance and War.
Manuel Ruiz—Minister of Justice, Ac.
Leon Guzman—Minister of Patronage.
Guillermo Prieto—Minister of Works.
On hoard the John L. Stevens, President Juarez
expressed himself very freely in favor of free trade
and free intercourse with the United States, and in
all things seemed liberally disposed towards the
United States, and did not hesitate to say so. They
were very popular with the passengers."
The official columns of I.a Siiz tic la Liberta/l,
published in Colina, of April 8, contains the cor
respondence between the Secretary of State and
Foreign Affairs appointing General" llegollado to
the otfice of Secretary- of War and of the Navy,
and also to the post of '-general-in-chief of the fe'd
ei al army. Genera! Degollado's reply signifies
fiis acceptance id' both olfiees, and his determina
tion to do his duty "in the cause of law and or
der."
I From the Mrxiran Extraordinary. April 6.1
From a letter dated Orizaba, April 1, we learn
tlifft Don Agustia de Hurhide has been thrown into
prison in that place. The charge against him
was, entertaining ideas too conservative for that lo
cality.
We learn that a body of men from the south, to
the number of 1,100 strong, have entered the town
ot Tasco, and committed a number of excesses.—
Among other things, they attacked the works'of
the I'edregal mine, destroying by tire and other
means all the works above "ground". They also kill
ed the blacksmith belonging to the works, who at
tempted to make some resistance, lie was on guard
at the time the attack was made, 'the above mine
belonged to Dr. Burr, an American, and was beinc
worked by J. B. Jebkcr A Co., a foreign baukino--
lionse of ibis city.
The Minister <>(' War has addressed a very com
plimentary letter to General Osolio, in reply to his
letter and dispatches, giving the terms of'the ca
pitulation of the troops of I'arrodi and the fall of
Gaudalajara into the hands of the Government.
[J'uebla (April 4 J Correspondence of Mexican Extraor
dinnry.\
We are in complete uncertainty here as to the
particulars of General Eclieagary's late battles.
Hut, notwithstanding the Government keep a sig
nificant silence, 1 believe there cannot be a doubt
that he has had a serious bat tle.
There are various versons of how it happened, but
I cannot vouch for the accuracy of any.
All agree that it has been a serious affair, and
his loss in killed, wounded, and missing, is said to
have been nearly 700 men. His raw levies, picked
up in the streets, as might have been expected, be
haved very badly under lire, threw away their arms
and ran.
It is not known in public where Gen. Echeagary
is. They make him out to be in inanv different
places, which proves general ignorance of his where
abouts.
Beceril's force, which was stationed in detach
ments on the road to provide escorts, has joined the
Constitutionalists, and we shall have robberies more
frequent than latterly.
[PneUa ( April it) Correspondence, of the Mexican Extra
ordinary ,J
Camano is in Matamoras with 1,000 I'intos, but
as lie is another class of man from Delgado, 1 have
heard no complaints of bad conduct on the part of
his men.
The Government forces in Atlixco are fortifying
the town to resist an attack.
To-dav, fourteen severely and forty slightly
wounded, with two disabled guns of large calibre,
one with the breech blown out and the other with
a trunnion knocked off, came in from Echeagary's
camp, and, it is said, more wounded will enter to
night.
FOKEIGN MISCELLANY.
MADAME ORSINI. — Madame Orsini has left Paris
to return to the Italian village, where she has long
been established as schoolmistress. Friends of I tab
ian liberty helped to administer all the comfort that
lav in their power by subscribing handsomely to the
widow and fatherless, and a sum of 2,500 fraiics was
placed in Madame Orsini's hands at the moment of
departure, to which the principal subscribers are
English.— Court Journal.
SUPPRESSION OF AN ITALIAN UNIVERSITY. —In con
sequence of the sympathy exhibited by a large
body ot the students of Padua for Orsini, and their

ing the dispersion of the students to their homes,

MISCELLANEOUS.
A HARD CASE.— A lady, with a little child of
three years of age, arrived at the City Hotel last
Monday, from Big Creek, Shelby county, Tennes
see, from which place she had' enme to join her
husband in this city. Her husband hailed from
East Hartford, gave his name as Hubert 0. Ander
son, and is a carriage maker by trade. He married
tins girl in Tennessee about four years ago, and the
child was born about a year after marriage. He
was poor, and his wife, by her own cHurts? raised
the sum of $1,540 for him, with which he set up in
business. Subsequently lie came north on account
of health, and about a month ago lie wrote to his
wile that he could obtain work in this vicinity, and
advised her to convert her property into cash and
come on here. She accordingly sold her property
(some negroes and land) for $1,700, with which and
her child she came on to meet her husband, by ap
pointment, in New York. He met her there, and
advised her to place the $1,700 in his possession for
safety until they got settled at Hartford. This she
<lid; and hor husband, for sonic apparently satisfac
tory reason, left her to await the washing of her
clothes at the hotel, while he canto on ahead to this
city. She afterwards received a letter from him,
mailed at Hartford, telling her to come on, and ad
dress liiin a note from the City Hotel, and send it to
Hart's carriage factory, No. 12 Ford street. This
she accordingly did, lint no such person as Robert
O. Anderson could be found. Yesterday, officer
Chamberlain was put upon a search for'him, but
without success, and it is evident that the fellow has
robbed and basely deserted his wife. She was left
without money; and a purse of sdfib- $3O or $4O lias
been raised for her to get hack to Tennessee with.
There she has relatives and friends able and willing
to help her, who know nothing of this base deed.—
The lady is not now even certain that the name by
which her dishonest husband was married is his
true name, as she can learn nothing relative to him
hereabouts. We publish the facts, although she
shrinks front the thought of her position thus being
made public in order to increase the chances of
bringing the guilty party to detection and justice.
His daguerreotype is in possession of Chamber
lain.— Hartford Times, Saturday.
.MINNESOTA "A STATE OFT OF THE UNION."-—Min
nesota —recently, if not. now, a territory—is a Stale
within the geographical boundaries of the Union,
so tar as such a State can exist without the consent
of the Congress of the United States. The St. Paul
Pioneer thus refers to the recent vote of the people,
by which this condition of things lias been brought
round :
The amendment to the constitution, providing
that the State officers elect shall enter upon the diT
ties of their ollice on the Ist of Mav. is also ap
proved by the people, by large majorities,wherever
it has been voted upon." We are glad of this. It
may be stvled a revolutionary movement, but what
of that? There is no shame connected with the
word "revolution." We, of Minnesota, onlv seek
to exhibit our appreciation of the contempt and
neglect with which Congress has treated us, and to
protect ourselves (by the only means left to us) by
governing ourselves.
The usual annual banquet of the New York

tion of the Association for the past year, from which
it appeared that the income from members, sub
scriptions, and interest on investment, was $(>,630;
thirty seven new members had joined, and six mem
bers had died. The amount paid to retired mem
bers was $3,000, to sick members $2,341; to widows
of deceased members $375, and for burial expenses.

A band of f illibusters is said to be concentrating
near T orktown, Hewitt county, Texas, preparatory
to an irruption into Northern Mexico. The com
mandant at Fort Mackintosh (near Laredo,) is ex
pected to head the foray, when the force reaches
eight hundred in number. It is hinted that the
Gen. Tw iggs court-martial was trumped up chiefly
to get him out of the way, so that the fillibusters
may get safely oil. A movement of German emi
grants to Chihuahua, is also said to he projected,
under the patronage of Palarios, the governor of
that State.
THREE EXPECTED COMETS. —Astronomers arc now
on tlie owl vire for three periodical comets, viz:—
Fay's, Encke's, and the great comet of 185<>. A
new claimant for the honor of the discovery of the
sixth comet of 1557 has appeared in the person of
Van Arsdale, of Newark, New Jersey. His claim,
however, docs not hold good, since he did not de

Should the Republicans secure a majority in the
Illinois legislature, to be chosen next November, it
seems to be understood on all hands that they will
select a true and tried friend of their cause to suc
ceed Judge Douglas. Only one person is seriously
named in this connection, as yet, and a general
agreement in his favor is probable. This is Hon.
Abram Lincoln, formerly of the House of Repre
sentatives. He but just missed of an election, instead
of Judge Trumbull, the present Republican Senator
from Illinois.
The Norfolk Ari/un says that the late Virginia
legislature has left the militia in a most disorgan
ized state. "There is not a colonel in the State
whose commission is not vacated, and consequently
no company organized since the passage of the new
militia bill can have commissioned ollicers or ob
tain arms; and possibly before these companies can
be commissioned and armed, the military spirit may
have partially died out, and our volunteer force be
but slightly augmented."
The experiment of steam canal navigation on the
Chesapeake and Ohio canal, is pronounced eminentl v
successful. The steamer James L. Cathcart, has al
ready made some seven trips from Georgetown to
Cumberland, and in each one has proved herself
worthy of everything claimed by her inventor. The
Civilian says that a boat of her build, though gain
ing but little as to speed, is infinitely preferable to a
horse boat, from th 6 fact that it costs $lO per trip
less to run it. The patent right of the "Cathcart"
has also been purchased for the Erie canal.

attempting to get in when Horton shot him in the
mouth with his rifle, the ball going through his
head. He lived but a few minutes afterward. The
affair originated from a pecuniary transaction.

"FRIENDS AT A DISTANCE, PLEASE ACCEPT THIS IN
TIMATION." —When the news of Gen. Havelock's
death reached America, our neighbors (well, it wilt
soon be only five minutes across,) hastened to testi
fy their sense of England's loss. In New York and
Boston the shipping made the signal of mourning,
the colors half-mast high, and several church bells
were tolled. We have also received a print which,
intended for circulation among the masses, may be
field to express their feelings—the funeral proces
sion of Havelock is on its march, and a figure sym
bolic of the United States bends the uncovered
head in respectful sympathy.
We owe our cousins a hearty good wish in re
turn for their display of kind feeling. We can
hardly wish them better than this, namely, that
America may always continue to act more wisely
by her children than her mother England has too
often done. In that case the Union will be spared
the knowledge of the yalue of a single brave soldier
at a time of unexpected disaster. And if it should
ever happen - who knows?—somehow the English
language, let it be spoken where it may, has a facul
ty of arousing the enmity of despotism—if it should
ever happen that American bayonets should cross
steel from the Arsenal of Cronstad ,or Toulon or
Vienna, may the gallant Republicans have a leader
like Havelock, to show them how to improve their
victory. So wish England and— Punch.
A novel optical phenomenon was observed to be

is even now distinctly visible without the aid of any
instrument.

A NEW METHOD OF GENERATING STEAM. A new
mode of generating steam is proposed, in the ap
paratus for which, the inventor employs a series of
tubes set in a fui uaee, as gas retorts are set, and in
side these tubes are smaller one, which are perforated
with fine boles. The water to be evaporated, is
forced into these smaller tubes under considerable
pressure, by force pumps or otherwise, so that it
issues in very fine streams, which are caused to
strike sheet iron shields placed over the small tubes,
and the force of the blow breaks the water up into a
fine mist, which is immediately converted into
steam, and the steam passes out of the large tubes
into a chamber heated to a high degree by a furn
ace in which it becomes superheated, and so consi
derably increased in pressure. Another arrange
ment is to fix a large Hue in the interior of a cylin
drical boiler, and in this flue there is contained a
furnace which heats it; over it a series ot perfora
ted tubes are fixed, which throw fine jets ot water
against a metal shield placed over tliem, thus pro
ducing a mist which, by coining in contact with the
hot flue, is converted into steam and superheated.
