Q^inuatioit. PATAPSCO FEMALE INSTITUTE. MARYLAND rPHF. TRUSTEES of the Patapseo Female I. 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, but 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 cpmplete. It is furnished with a new organ of line construction and ex cellent tone. The administration of Mr. Archer for the past year and the present lias been attended with unprecedented suc- C"ss, and the Trustees feel themselves fully justified in recommending the Institute to the continued favor of the Bouth. it has pre-eminence in healthfulness. The pupils avoid ing. on the one hand, the debilitating effects 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- t couiplished teachers and professors, called together from time to time in the long experience of those having charge of the Institute. The Trustees of the Patapseo Female Institute, having he n 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 Voung 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; anil with this view we are engaged in the erection of another building in addition to the present extensive accommodations of the Institute.

FOREIGN. THE MAILS OF THE KANGAROO AND THE ARABIA. THE SEICK OF I.L'UKNOW. '•'lie LMowing particulars are from the letter of tnu I mic special Bombay correspondent: BOMBAY, March I:>.—l am afraid it is doubtful \\hcther the extra mail of to-dav will reach Suez in tone to be forwarded with the Calcutta mail of the i'tii. I hope it may, for it carries to you the news that Lueknow has fallen, or, at least, that one posi tion of the enemy after another had been carried, till nothing remains to them—if, indeed, it vet re mains—but the north-western portion of the citv. in which are no buildings of importance or strcn'i'th, and that even from this quarter thev are 11 v ill'' in multitudes. ' " Our telegrams from the camp come down to the morning of the 15th, three davs ago, and just seven days later than those of which 1 gave you the sub stance last week. ihen, YOU will remember, I informed you that on the 3<l the armv moved from the Alnnihagli and occupied thdDitkoosha park: that the erection of batteries was at once com menced to destroy the enemy's works on the canal that (111 the 6th Outrani crossed the Goonite, below the city, with 6.000 men and 30 guns, and took a position in which, on the following day, he was attacked hv and repulsed the enemy; that Brigadier Franks had joined the camp on the 4th, amf that Jung Baliadoor was to cross the Goomte at Sultan pore about the 2d, and would he up with the com mander-in-chief. The proceedingson the subsequent days are known to us compendiously by means of the telegraph. I pon establishing himself on the further side of the river Sir James Outram proceeded to force his wav upwards, thus completely enfilading toe enemy's line. The Begum's palace was stormed on the 11th by the93d Highlanders,supported by the 42d, with the loss of Captain Mac Donald killed, and about 100 j other casualties. About 500 of the enemy fell at this point. Simultaneously with this attack. Sir I .Tames Outrain, on the further side of the river, having forced his way upwards -through the low I suburbs and over the "King's garden and other en-! closures, occupied the stone bridge above the town, j destroying another 500 of the enemy who held it. i On the same or the following "day, the 12th, the Commander-in-Chief pursued his advantage by occupying the buildings in advance of the Begum's palace. This movement brought him in front of the strongest of the enemy's positions, the lmaum barralt. On the 13th a sap was run up towards the wall of this enclosure, and a breach having been effected by the artillery, the place was a.C saulted at 0 in the morning of the 14th. The Imaumbarrah was carried, and our troops, press ing close upon the flying enemy, entered the Kaiserbagh, or King's I'alace, which Outram had busily shelled, the last, I believe, of the formidable positions of the enemy, and, after a hard light which lasted all the remainder of the day, obtained com plete occupation of it, capturing 22 guns. Then the routed enemy began to fly from the city. Outram crossed the iron bridge over the river and fell upon tliem in their rear, the thunder of the chief's artil lery still crashing upon their front and flanks. One line of retreat lay open to them—that to the north west, towards R'ohilcutid. On the 15th Sir Colin, finding that the enemy were availing themselves largely of this opening, dispatched after them at two o'clock in the morning, a brigade of cavalry and artillery, under Brigadier Campbell, who moved to the left from his position in front of the Alumhagh. Sir Hope Grant, with 1000 sabres and two troops of horse artillery, was sent out in co-operation, hut on the north side oi the river, along the Seetaporc road, which leads direct into Rohilcund, and a heavy battery, with a brigade ofiinfantryy y were to follow him on the 16th. He was to proceed as far as Seetaporc, and there wait for orders. Such is our latest news up to this moment. Our loss, von will rejoice to hear, is telegraphed as " verv small." As was anticipated, the Commander-in-Chief has made chief use of his artillery, under the tremen dous lire ot which the enemy's defences were crush ed. and their courage and constancy gave way. BOMBAY, March 24, Three P. M.—Lueknow fell on the 10th. 11 guns were captured, and about 2.000 of the enemy were slain during the siege.— Mrs. Orr and .lackson were rescued. Might officers killed. The townspeople and villagers, be ing protected, arc resuming their occupations. The submission of the principal land owners has been accepted. About fO.O'M) of the enesnv have escaped, making for Rohilcund and Rundeknnd. The army is in pursuit of the rebels. The delay of Sir li. Rose s torce for three weeks at Saugor prevented the line of troops intend d to intercept the enemv li om being elo.-ed up. Sir 11. Rose, with the second division of the Uajpootana field force, was within twenty-live miles of dhansi on the 21st of March. 00.000 relwls are said to be in his front. General Robert's force marched from Xusseerabad to Kotah on the 10th and lltli. The distance is 120 miles. The Calpee mutineers have taken the fort ol'Church ard, and taken the Rajah prisoner. Whitelock's force remains in charge of Saugor, the cavalry only" having pushed on to Allahabad. Stuart's brigade captured Chunduree on the 17th. CHIXA. lIONO KONG, Feb. 27.— The Chinese new year ho lidays have passed over ouietlv, both here and at Canton. At the latter place matters appear to be proceeding satisfactorily, and the people in the city and suburbs arc seemingly becoming more recon ciled to the presence of foreigners. In the countrv around Canton, however, the same hostile feeling as formerly still exists against the foreigners. A party of officers had gone into the country a short distance were obliged to return, having been fired upon bv some Chinese soldiers, and "braves."— Trade is slow in being resumed,- and only one ves sel has yet gone up to Whampoa. Consuls are now established there. _ Ihe Chinese show a willingness to commence bu siness. The estimate now given of the quantity of tea available at Canton is GO chops this season, some of them line oopacks, for which '.'/J or 10 taels are asked, and some 200 chops of the two last seasons, the quality and condition of which are very ques tionable. To the present time foreigners have shown no disposition to make purchases. Lord Llgin has returned to this place, and it is understood will pro ceed north immediately. The representatives of the other powers are to follow. There is a sanguine feeling among many that the demands to be mode by the representatives of the four powers will be acceded to at once by the Emperor. We should be glad to have any good ground to look for this result to the expedition. The China Mail of the 27th February contains the following intelligence of interest: From Canton we hear little worthy of credence that premises any change in the condition of things one way or the other. The Chinese are wondering as much as our selves why "that Emperor no hap talkee." Some of the better informed had made sure of hearing his Majesty's views by the lPtli or 20th instant, and a rumor prevailed last week of the approach of two high commissioners. Their names were given, hut we put no great faith in the report. As to popular demonstrations, we hear of none. Braves are stated to be gathering here and gathering there. The allied garrison was to have been extirpated on the 14th instant, the first of the Chinese year, hut the only part of this formidable force that has as yet shown itself is a body of some 200, that were surprised a few days since, some way north of the city, by a party of officers who had been out on an excursion attended by a small escort. The later were tired upon, but the only loss sustained was on the side of the assailants. It is still believed that the four pit nipotentiarics will proceed north next month. We suppose, however, that the arrival of an imperial commissioner, if one be indeed on his way, would delay the proposed expedition. The Mail also mentions that Mr. Anstey, the attorney general at Hong Kong, was about to proceed to Swatow, there to make inquiry in person as to cer tain brutalities alleged to have been perpetrated upon coolies by British subjects. Mr. Reed, the Lnited States Minister to China, was adopting vig orous measures to suppress the coolie traffic alto gether, so far as American subjects were concerned, lie had addressed a circular on the subject to the American Consuls at the five ports. The 0 cert and Friend of China, of the 27th Febru ary. understands that all thought of a visit by the English and French Ambassadors to IVkin, this Year, is given up. A cargo of old tea was taken to Macao, and a cargo of cassia to llnng Kong, ship pers in both cases paying the duties; and it is pre sumed that, for the future, or at all events till the Emperor's pleasure is known, Canton stands a free port. THE PAPAL STATES. A letter from Rome, i*i the Univcrx, contains the following extraordinary tale : In the cathedral of'Vclletri, near Rome, was an image of the Virgin, nearly covered with gold, and decked out with necklaces, rings and jewelry, and it was held in great veneration by the people. In the Iloly Week, it was, according to custom, screened from view by a curtain, and, on Holy Thursday, sonic person contrived to steal it. On Good Friday, the archpii -t of the cathedral re ceived a note thus conceived : "I, the undersigned, know the thief, and the spot in which is deposited the image of the Madonna, and I will make reve lations on three conditions—immunity for myself, the release of my brother, who is to he condemned to death, and a pension of ten crowns a month— VI:XDKTTA." The arehpriest, having ascertained that the image really had been abstracted, communicated the strange epistle to the delegate, Monsignor (liordani. Instead of s -king at once for the writer of the let ter, tliis dignitary applied to Koine for orders, and the Pope, fearing the total loss of the image, direct ed that the lirst condition of the bandit should he accepted, but that the other two should he rejected. Vendetta, having learned this resolution, spread among the people of Vnlletri the news t>f the robbe ry of the image, which the clergy of the cathedral had kept secret, and he wrote to the clergy that he would b content with immunity for himself and with 500 crowns paid down. On Saturday the people went ea masse to the church, and waited with anxiety for the arrival of that part of the service in which the crucifixes and images arc uncovered; hut the veil which had cov ered the image of the Madonna was not removed. On Sunday the people again went to the church, but as the image was not displayed they became excited and murmured, and at length some of them got on the altar and tore down the curtain. The rumor was then spread by fri-'nds of Vendetta that it was the Jesuits who had stolen the Madonna; and the excited people, believing the falsehood, broke into the convent occupied by the Jesuits, which is adjacent to the cathedral, aud with cries of "La Madonna nostra!" completely sacked it, and ill treated the reverend fathers. Shortly after the suffragan bishop ascended the pulpit and exhorted | the people who remained in the church to be calm, ; but they would not listen to him. There is no garrison except ten or twelve vete rans in the town, so that no opposition could be made to the mob. When the bishop descended from the pulpit a scarcely credible scene occurred : the brigand Vindetta. armed with a poignard, as cended it. and thus addressed the people : " lie pa tient! The good fathers are innocent. It is I who stole the Madonna. But 1 will only restore it when the government, to whom I grant a delay till Mon day evening, shall have consented to tile compact I have proposed to it. Be calm, therefore, and shout no more. I warn vou, in conclusion, that mv com panions arc armed as well as I." What followed that harangue we have not yet learned : but a dep utation of the municipality and chapter of Velletri have arrived here, and have had an interview with the Pope. Orders have been issued to dispatch a troop of gendarmes on horseback and a company of Swiss infantry to Vclletri to establish order. SPAIN. A Madrid telegram of the Stli informs us that in the sitting of the Congress the President of the Council had formally declared that the rumors cur rent as to the fusion between tlie two branches of the royal family were unfounded, no project of the kind existing either in Spain or abroad. Queen Isabella, therefore, has evidently broken through I IN- meshes of the conspirators who, hacked by the king, have boon for some time endeavoring to ob tain her consent to the fusion. The word "abroad." inserted in the reply, refers to the belief prevailing in Madrid that the "Countess Monti jo and her daugh ter. the Empress of the French, have been busv trying to win over the French government to the fusion. A Mad. id letter of the 7th instant informs us that reports of a modification of the Ministry are cur rent there. The formation of a Narvacz-Gonzales liravo Ministry is spoken of. The reported Carlist insurrection in Catalonia is contradicted. The spe cial commission appointed to examine and report on the law regulating the dress had nearly com pleted its labors. All the amendments introduced by the commission are favorable to the liberty of the press. i lie committee of the Cortes charged to examine the hill on the press lias introduced into it amend ments favorable to freedom of discussion. One pro vision ol the hi!! states that attacks directed against foreign sovereigns shall not be liable to prosecution unless they apply to the sovereign of a country where a similar law is in force. ENGLAND. THIAt, OF' 1111. BERNABD. The_ trial of Dr. Simon Bernard, under a special commission, for being an accessory before the fact to the attempt ot Orsini and others to assassinate the Emperor of the French, commenced on Friday last, at the Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey, and has continued each day, sans intermission, up to the present moment. ' The verdict will probably he given to-morrow. It may be conceived that the trial has created considerable interest, and that it has been the ab sorbing topic of the week, almost to the exclusion of every other. Lord Campbell, who is the Lord Chief Justice, presided, and was supported bv Lord ( hiet Baron Bollock, Mr. Justice Erie, the Citv Recorder, the Lord Mayor, and others of high standing at the bar, or in the city of London. The Lord Chief Justice addressed the grand jurv at con siderable length, and they retired to consider the evidence laid before them, and returned in the course of the afternoon, with four hills/two charg ing Dr. Bernard with being a principal in the mur ders of persons named Nicholas Batti and Eugene Rigour, the others charging him with being acces sory before the lact to the commission of those murders, and with conspiring to compass the death of the Emperor Napoleon. The whole of the bills were returned as true hills. On Monday morning the court opened for the actual commencement of the trial, the Lord Chief Justice and Chief Baron with the other Judges at tending as before. There was an imposing array of counsel. For the prosecution were the Attor ney General. (Sir Fitzrnv Kelly.) Mr. Macaulav, Q. <".. Mr. Webby, Mr. Bodkin "and Mr. Clerk. For Bernard were Mr. Edwin James, I). ('., Mr. J. Si mon. an advocate with a great reputation at Liver pool, but new to London, Mr. Hawkins, Mr. Slei'di Mr. Briuvin and Mr. Scoble. The indictments against the prisoner were for feloniously inciting, moving, procuring, counselling, Ac., one FeliceOr sini and others to commit certain felonies, i. e. to kill and murder certain parties in France, and also to kill and murder his Imperial Majesty Louis Napo leon, Emperor of the French. On being called upon to declare himself guilty or not guilty, the prisoner, denying the jurisdiction of the Court, refused to plead." This was the first im portant legal point raised. The Court ordered a plea of not guilty to be entered for him. And then commenced a struggle for the jury. Jurors were called anil successively challenged, either by the crown or the counsel for the defence, and it was nearly two hours before a jury was impanneled and sworn; and after an application by Mr. .Limes for a copy of the commission, the Attorney General opened the case for the crown. The court was crowded in every part, but a breathless silence was observed on the commencement of the speech of the Attorney General, who recapitulated at great length, and with circumstantial minuteness, all the evidence tending to connect the prisoner with the charges in the indictment. At the close of his speech, he referred to some legal points which the opposite side would probably raise, but lie an swered that he was quite prepared to reply to them. Lord Campbell said, if any such should be raised, they must be argued before the fifteen judges. Then commenced the examination of wit nesses. the number of whom may be guessed, when it is known that four whole days have been occupied in giving their evidence. Thev were composed of French police agents, English" detectives, French tradesmen or professionals, who witnessed the at tempt at assassination, surgeons, manufacturers ot fire-arms, English and French; the gun ma ker who made the grenades; the chvmists who sold the chemicals of which the fulminating mercury was composed: the railway a fr ent who sent pistols to Paris : railway clerks ; passport agents and consuls: French and Belgian cafe keepers and their wives; hired servants, inn keepers, conveyancers, money changers, bankers, clerks, ad infinitum, all helping to weave a chain of evidence, as complete as circumstantial evidence can ever hope to be, "against the prisoners. The witness who excited most interest, was Rudio*s wife. She gave her evidence on the latter part of \\ ednesdav and early on Thursday morning.— It has been consistent throughout, varying in no important degree- from that she gave'before the magistrate on the first investigation. Her evidence goes to prove that Dr. Bernard engaged her hus band to go to Paris, and that lie furnished her and him with money, the real object for doing which, she does not pretend to know. I had a long con versation with her on Tuesday, when she gave me a description of her parting interview with her hus band. He gave to her all the money he had, some S4O. and with that she had to en counter the world with a young child to support. She told me that she was very ill during her journey, and she intimated, rather than said, that she was more affected at separating from her husband, than from his previous conduct to her, she thought she should have been. There can be no doubt that the purport of Dr. Bernard's visit to her husband, and the object with which he em ployed him. were unknown to her, and that she went down at the request of Bernard, after her hus band had left England, to Nottingham, wondering what her husband could be occupied in at Paris that should bring his name into the papers. Dr. Bernard having cautioned her that if she saw her husband's name in them, or heard it spoken about by persons, not to take any notice. She says that the police—especially Mr. Saunders—have been very kind to her. and that she is better off, as she now is, than she has been since she married Kudio. She petitioned the Empress of France to save her husband's life, and it is said by those who have the best opportunities of know ing, that it was ow ing to the intercession of the imperial lady that Rudio was not decapitated. A young wife, pleading for the life of the father of her infant child was a case the Empress, tender-hearted as she is known to be, was not likely to remain unaffected by, and her influence would be used accordingly. It was used, indeed, to the desired end: hut, after all, the result is of small value to the poor young creature, as the deportation of her husband for life will, save for the sentiment, render the issue pretty much the same to her, at least, though hardly to Rudio. The case for the prosecution closed yesterday, and Mr. Edwin James, Q. in reply to a question from the Lord Chief Justice, said that he should prefer the proceedings to be deferred until to morrow (this day), as he had seventy witnesses to produce; but, at the same time, he begged to lay nine points of law before their lordships, which he raised against these proceedings. They embodied the following items : that the prisoner was not a British subject, within the meaning of the act of George IV., under which their lordships had the special commission for trying him; that the prisoner was not an accessory before the fact of any murder, within the meaning of that act: that there was no proof of any murder within the mean ing of that act; that the murder committed was bv aliens against aliens, and not by British subjects on British subjects; that no evidence on the acts of the prisoner, nor acts done under his direction, were receivable here; that the principal offence of mur der was not alleged in the indictment to have been committed bv anv British subject; that Allsop's let ter, dated Jan. l", 1557, was not properly received as evidence against the prisoner; that the court being authorized to try persons on the charge of being accessories before the fact, they had no juris diction to try the prisoner as principal on the charge of murder ; "that the prisoner could not be tried for an offence committed out of the Queen's dominions. Lord Campbell, ignoring the pint of Allsop's letter, which he said had been argued and held to be admissible, stated that the opinion of the fifteen judges would be taken upon all the rest before pro nouncing judgment, if the verdict were unfavorable to the prisoner; which, if anything is to be gath ered from the conduct of a judge, Tie seemed to feel pretty strongly assured would be the case. It is believed that the verdict will be given to-morrow; but there is Mr. James' speech in defence, seventy witnesses to examine, the Attorney General to re ply, Lord Campbell to charge, ami if this be all got through by to-morrow night, they w ill—w ho are concerned in it—do their work very briskly. An adverse verdict is expected. The fact is, the chain of evidence is very com plete, and the greatest possible credit, without any PRICE TWO CENTS reference to the merits of the ease itself, is due to ->lr. Inspector Saunders, the chief of the detective loree, f' or the remarkable perseverance and skill w ltli which he has obtained and brought the evidence to hear. ° Being well acquainted with all the circumstances connected with it. 1 can speak with confidence as well as authorityon this point as well as that not the slight est advantage unlaw to the prisoner has been taken to procure it all wide as are its ramifications. As some proof of the energy displayed in getting the evidence together, the Attorney General at th■ close ot the evidence of M. .losef Giorgi, on'Tuos day atternoon, said that it would be necessary to produce Giorgi's wife, but she was at the Cale Susse, in Brussels. N'imparte— Mr. Saunders went oft by train, and yesterday morning he was at the Central Criminal Court, when it opened, with Mad Kighenri in his company. Rather quick work seeing that I was speaking with him 011 Tuesday night, a little before eight o'clock. The sum that this trial will cost will be enormous. Pending the trial I have to chronicle the arrival of the Duke of Malakoff, who arrived at Dover, with his suite in the French screw corvette Le Corse. The mili sary ambassador was received by the Mayor and town council of the ancient city, and a careful ad vantage was taken to express the abhorrence of Mr. Mayor and his colleagues at the attempt at assassination, on the 14th of January, and to beir us excellency to disassociate the English people from any wish to elevate assassination into a doc trine, or any other feeling than indignation that foreigners should be so ungrateful as to turn the asylum afforded them to such base purposes. The reception was one of unusual distinction, and the Marshal was somewhat unprepared for it. He appeared much pleased, hut he made 110 reference whatever to the principal portion of the Mayor's speech in his reply. He expressed his pleasure at being so well received, a gratification which he said was enhanced by finding so many old com panions in the Crimea at the landing place to wel come him. After partaking of some slight refresh ment, he proceeded to London. There is a notion prevalent that he will, inemj. , lie present to hear the close of Bernard's trial. Such a proceeding is 111 the highest degree improbable; but should he"at tempt it, lie would be certain to be recognized, and 1 fear his reception would be less flattering than .that which attended him at Dover.— Cor. Philadel phia North American. It will be seen by a telegram since received, and to be found in another column, that Bernard has been acquitted.—Kus. DAILY EXCHANGE. DOMESTIC f From thr Xrw I [ami Journal of Thursday.] TRIAL OF TUCKERMAN, TIIF. MAIL ROBBER. The April term of the United States Circuit Court commenced on Tuesday, the Hon. Charles A. In <*ersoll, tlie District Judge, officiating in place of Justice Nelson, who was absent. The Grand Jury was charged on Tuesday in relation to the mail rolj bery case, and it proceeded to investigate the charges against Adrial Phelps, ofGroton, who was arrested for robbing the New London and S ton in < r ton mail. The jury will probably be discharged this morning. '1 he case ot \\ illiam ,S. Tuckerman, charged with numerous robberies of the United States mail in November last, was opened yesterday afternoon. W m. 1). Shipman, Esq., U. S. Attorney, appeared for the prosecution, and Hon. E. K. Foster, and Thomas Yeatman, Esq., for the defence. Tucker man looked well, and seemed quite at his ease. He took notes of the evidence with the same coolness and unconcern which has characterised his whole conduct. As an illustration of his indifference, we are told that some time ago he made a copy of the long in dictment against himself, for the use of his counsel, using for that purpose a copy borrowed from the prosecution. He returned the copy, with a mar ginal note of his own, calling the attention of the District Attorney to one of the counts, in which 1 uckerman said there was an error which might prove fatal to the prosecution, and he advised the Attorney to correct it. Tuckerman has been employed as a clerk and book keeper of the county jail.since his arrest, and seems to like tln* business. The evide nee yesterday was only a repetition of thf most uninteresting part of what was published on his examination before-jhe Commissioner, and it is not worth re-printing. It is the evidence of post ollice clerks and others as to the mailing of letters and the forwarding of the mails between Philadel phia, New \ ork and Roston during the month of November. The Chicago papers question the validity of the new Minnesota loan just voted upon by the people. The Chicago Tribune produces a table of the debt and population of the different States. The propor tion ot debt to one person is 8.52 per cent, in Now ork, and 8.56 per cent, in Pennsylvania; while Minnesota, under the new loan, gives a proportion of 28.86 per cent. Such an amount of monev, no doubt, if properly applied to the development of a State's resources, would rapidly reduce this per centage; hut the step is looked upon as premature in a legal point of view, as at the time the loan hill passed the Legislature, Minnesota was not a State. The dwelling house of Mr. William Sterrett, some three miles above this place, was struck with lightning this afternoon. The house was greatly damaged; one ot the rafters was driven entirelV through the building, the pendulum of the clock was melted, and the mirror was broken into the smallest fragments, and other damage was done to the furniture. Mrs. Sterrett, child and servant were in the house at the time. Mrs. Sterrett was thrown from her chair and considerably stunned, though not seriously injured. The child and ser vant escaped with a slight shock.— Manon Countu ( \ a.) Republican. A young woman pretty and well dressed, leaped from the dock at the foot of Lombard street wharf, 1 hiladelphia, about 9 o clock on Monday evening, with the intention of committing suicide. Capt. rorsyth, latcot the ship Diamond State, plunged in after her and succeeded with some assistance in res cuing her. The unfortunate girl is an American bv birth, and said she regretted that her purpose had been interfered with. She was taken to the Union street Station House and properly cared for. She represents herself as homeless and friendless. List of Americans registered at the banking office of the American-European Express Com pan v, Paris, April Ito April 15. 1858: New York—K. B.

A German miner named Joseph Bartlenger, was preparing a blast in the coal, when by some means the powder was ignited .and exploded, throwing the whole charge directly into the man's face, completely destroying both eyes, and otherwise injuring him so severely that his life is despaired of. The question of publishing a paper, to be called the Baltimore Chrintian Advocate, as a conservative Methodist organ on the subject of slavery, was in troduced last week, at Charleston, Va., to the West ern Virginia Conference. Rev. Mr. Phelps, of the Baltimore Conference, pressed the importance of sustaining such an enterprise, but a resolution was adopted, nevertheless, leaving the members free to support any of their papers, without particularly endorsing any. Commodore Joshua Sands, United States Naval Commander of the steam-frigate Susquehanna, has obtained temporary leave of absence. The Commo - dore reached his home, at Stratford, Connecticut, on the 24th ult., where, during the evening, the young men, of the village turned out en wante, and proceeded to his residence and welcomed him home in the real fourth-of-July style, with cannon, salutes and cheers. At .an exhibition of .1 school, held at Alliance, Ohio, on Friday evening last in the Town Hall, the floor gave way, precipitating an audience of some live hundred to the floor below. The piano was broken to pieces, but, as by a miracle, the lady who presided at it was not injured. A girl, thirteen or fourteen years of age, was instantly killed, and onQ other person has died since. A large number were injured. A steam fire engine has been completed at Law rence, Mass., which throws a stream an inch and a half in diameter over a roof of 100 feet high, and throws the same stream 198 feet horizontally. Two streams of one inch were thrown over the same building and to a distance from the machine hori zontally of 208 feet. The Rev. Sullivan H.

The editor of the Richmond l)isi,atch has been shown a specimen of gold ore, weighing 115 penny weights, found on the land of John M. Aorville, Al bemarle county. Mr. Fisher has resumed the work ing of this land for gold, which had been aban doned some time ago, and is sanguine of a good "crop." Loefner, the Cincinnati murderer, whose sentence has been commuted to imprisonment for life, is greatly dissatisfied because he is not to be hung. He expected, if any change were made in his sen tence, that he would be pardoned. He desired one extreme or the other—liberty or death.
