COMMENTS OF THE CRESS (IX THE
ACQUITTAL OF IfKRN'ATiP.
[Emm the London Yeios, April Ilk ]
l rom one or two quartets we hoar puling whis
pers ahout the effect this verdict tnav produce upon
the mi rids of foreign governments. 'To these there
is only one reply:—England confidently believes
that the ffoverninents alluded to have sense enough
to acquiesce in the inevitable; and if thev have not,
England does not care.
THE EFFECT IX FRANCE.
{Paris (April 19) Corrrsimndenee of the London Times.]
Jhe I mm-* is the only journal which, up to the
present moment, feels'or affects anger at the
result of the trial ol Bernard. One has only
to cast a glance over the short article which
I sol,^riit to perceive that this "tearing a
passion to tatters" is merely affectation. The
gross ignorance it betrays, as well as the in
solence of its tone, suflices' to indicate the source
ot its inspiration. If we tnav believe the
I'nil-em, it was Bernard's ldood' that, was de
manded at any cost, and not justice. Whether his
"iiilt was proved or not—nothing, in fact, hut his
head could satisfy the I nirer*. The accused lias
been tried, tin- evidence against him is not such as to
satisfy a British jury. Wore that jury to violate
their oaths, and tind a verdict of guilty", not believ
ing him to he guilty? The judges and jury will not, 1
fancy, he much affected bv the abuse of the IWrm,
There are parties, no doubt, whom it seeks tn please,
and whose taste its language completely suits,
hut there can he no doubt of the liigliest personage
in the State disapproving it. Xo one, no English
man, lias ever pronounced a warmer eulogy on the
mode ol procedure ill the English courts of justice;
none has more warmly praised the administration
ol justice in England, or the independence and
courage,of an English jury and the purity of Eng
lish judges, than his Majesty Napoleon HI. His is
no merely theoretical knowledge; lie speaks as one
who has witnessed all he admires, lie savs:
No one ran be tbc victim ot legal oppression in a
country (England) where the judges are completely
independent, and generally respected, unless from
circumstances against which it is impossible to
guard. There is 110 public prosecutor in Knglaml,
for the Attorney (fcncral does not interfere except
in very extraordinary cases. \o doubt many guilty
persons may escape justice from want of such a
functionary, but it is also certain that the libertv of
the subjectruns less risk of being violated. But, it
is not the laws only which protect the citizens; it
is the manner in which the laws are executed; the
manner in which government exercises its authori
ty. Authority in Knglaml is never carried away bv
passion; it is ever moderate, and ever acts accord
ing to the law, SiC.—Kiinci, rol. 1, ;,./<■ IDi-l".
1 could till whole pages with extracts from his
Majesty's works 011 the superiority of Knglaml in
the administration of justice and the safeguard of
personal liberty over any other country. 1 refer
the I uirer* to them; it w ill lind that the august
person who is more interested in the present affair
thinks in a very different manner. There is no reason
to believe that his Majesty has changed his opinions
since 18.15.
As for the hurrahs which seemed to have angered
the I inn r* so much, they were, perhaps, a sort of
reply to the offensive addresses and menaces of the
colonels, which, I fear, are not yet forgotten.
It would be incorrect to take the I 'liinrs as the
interpreter of public opinion here in the case of
Bernard. With the exception of the most rampant
anti-Knglish, remarkable for ignorance and preju
dices, the feeling, generally speaking, seems to be
that the accused had a perfectly fair trial, and that
the jury decided 011 the evidence brought before
them. 1 can discovemone of that passion, none of
that rage affected by the fairer*, and certainly
none of the insolence. The generality of people
seem to agree with the Kinperor in his estimate of
the Kuglish tribunals, and the remarks of persons
to each other, even before the trial closed, was,
'•\\ loiterer happens, be sure that an English jury
w ill do justice."
The follow ing is the article of the Vnirrr*:
An I'.nglishjury has acipiitted Simon Bernard. —
The English people have saluted with hurrahs the
crowning net of the proceeding. The Kngiish
judges,-though compelled to retain the accused,
have, as far as thev could, associated themselves
with the scandal ol his acquittal, h\* admitting him
to bail. If. is all complete, and it is all disgust
ing. Nothing is wanting. While (lie trial was pro
ceeding Mazzini published a pamphlet which was
copied by several papers, ami in which insolence
and insults against the Emperor exceed the most, re
volting language which the refugees ever previous
ly used. If the Kngiish government did not wish
for this result, tin; TIIIH-H it is that rules public
opinion. It it wished for such a result, in that ease,
the Timri has been the organ of its ideas. In eith
er case 1- ranee is enlightened as to the real feelings of
Knglaml. As we neither answer for nor are the cham
pions of modern civilization ia general and of English
civilization in particular,we have nothing more to say
—between two powerful and friendly nations arises a
discussion on what may he called" the question of
assassins; one of these two nations decides the ques
tion to the detriment of the other and in favor of
the assassins. This is the last feature and one of
the most remarkable of European policv in tin;
nineteenth century. Let us bo candid,"and add
that in the real position of affairs the infamous
cheers ot the London pra'toriiiui appeal" to us far
preferable to the dull compliments with which the
Municipal Council of Dover fatigued the frankness
ot the Duke de Malakotf on the previous day. In
their display ot loyalty these compliments were
no doubt very English", hut the cheers raised in
triumph for Simon Bernard were the heart of Knir
land herself.
The Fatric confines itself by laying before its
readers the judicial meaning of the verdict, and
observes that Lord I'alinerston was right when con
sidering the English legislation as insullicient and
imperfect.
It is said that additional police agents arc appoin
ted at one.of the stations of tip? Northern Railway,
near Paris, for greater efficiency in examining the
passports of persons coming by that line to Paris.
The same (ias been done at Calais, Boulogne and
other ports on the coast,
f Paris (Ajtril 10) Corresjxmdence of London News.]
It is impossible to describe the stupefaction in
government circles occasioned by the verdict. The
Mnnitcur. which all the week has given full reports
of the trial, now sinks in silence, and dors not <r* n
jnddish the f< !<>(/,-a/ih ie m irx of the result. The writer
conjectures that it was impossible to decide at once
upon the way in which the matter was to be offi
cially represented to the French public; whether
indignation, indifference, or expectation of help
from the British Legislature is to he exhibited, is
yet doubtful.
[/'oris Cttrrespondence of the London Pot. April If).]
Amongst other subjects of general conversation
in Paris, growingout of I'ernard's trial, is the re
spective naval force of the English and French tleet.
This sort of conversation, however much to be re
gretted, naturally originates in the prevailing belief
that F.ngliand and France may eventually find a so
lution of difficulties in war. A naval man tells me
France has now in commission some 10 or 12 first class
vessels,that is. carrying from 1)0 to Lilt guns, averag
ing crews of from 000 to 1. 100 men. In the space of a
week or two this number might be augmented to 15
sail with S frigates. These vessels are all provided
with screws. There are now twenty puddle wheel
steamers at sea,and seventy war vessels, inelu
ding corvettes, gun boats and boating batteries, near
ly all in commission, it is calcniahd that Franc*
iroulil JjUt to *"t n steam fleet ef HiJctkf r< seels with in
less thaii a i/i nr. 'i x hi?c ore now at the disjiosal of
the rof .Jfui iiu oh* mf 00.000 sailors, and any
number of marines. The French marine officers
are of opinion that there is no reason why the Eng
lish fleets should not burn the shipping of the ports
of France, hut they maintain France would cer
tainly succeed in landing an army on the English
coast.
And wise men will sincerely hope this sort of gos
sip, however universal, w ill end in words. My only
object in repeating it is to convey an idea of the
tone of public feeling in Paris since it was known
that English law protected such men as Reruard.—
This is another event which oddly enough has cer
tainly augmented already the popularity of the
Emperor. The individuality of the attempt on the
Emperor's life has given place to a feeling of "insult
ed France." Lord Cow ley does not. I Indieve, leave
France this evening, as intended, probably because
his Excellency may think proper to remain in order
to ascertain the effect produced by the result of
Bernard's trial. 1 tind it is quite understood inoffi
cial circles that the people who cheered Bernard
are the foreign republican illustrious exiles who are
so much in live with English freedom and hospitali
ty as to abuse it on all occasions.

HAVANA, April 50.
! The investigation as to the seizure of the brig
Cortez, under suspicion that she was a slaver, proves
a gross outrage on the part of the marauding Brit
ish gun boats. The facts will be foj.warded to the
State Department by this steamer if practicable.—-
The nuisance of "srhrrh" upon our otrn roast should
be abated. • *
The part of the Government (Juarez ministerial)
of Mexico, from Acapulco via Aspinwall, which
passed to Sew Orleans by the last steamer (Phila
delphia) received little attention here for want of
time.
The weather at Havana is good and there is no
excitement on any subject.

Commodore Smith, Captain Ingfaiiain, and Naval
Constructor Lentliall have been constituted, bv the
Secretary oi the Navv, a board of comtoissiuners,
in accordance with a "resolution of the Senate, for
the purpose of examining into the merits of a new

Morris A Solomon, of Baltimore.
Commander Win. W. Hunter, I". S. N\, lias been
ordered to the command of the receiving ship Alle

Advices have been received at the War Depart
ment from the sloop of-war Dale, which was at St.
Paul de Hoando, Feb. 11. She hail been to Ben
guela, where she had forced the forced the Portu
guese authorities to release two Americans, held
in imprisonment there on frivolous charges. -
One ot these seamen, Jeremiah Donovan, of the
New Bedford ship Osceola, had been incarcerated
ten months. The authorities at first refused to de- |
liver up their prisoners, hut a threat from the com
mander of tin- Dale to bombard the town, had the
desired effect.
SniRENOEit or Fr.oiiiin IXOIAXS. —By the arrival
of the steamer from Key West, Tanipn, Ac., on
Thursday we are placed in possession of Hie grati
fying intelligence, through Gen. Carter, who came
on as a passenger, that 117 Indians were in at Fort
Myers, rrndi/ to rioo/rote! This number is composed
ot 55 warriors and 84 women and children, and con
stitutes the bauds of .Bowlegs and Assinwah.
Both ot these chiefs are .present, with all
their " plunder," ready to move at. anv
time. The rest of the ho-tiles consist of Sam Jones*
hand, numbering 25 warriors, 15 of the "Markoe"
tribe and 7 Tallahassees. A part of the Arkansas
delegation bad gone in quest of these, with a pros
pect of securing the emigration of the most, if not
all of them. Sam .Tones is helpless and nearly
blind, anil averse to moving, but. the most of bis '
warriors arc willing to go, aiul asked a few days in j
which tooperate upon the balance. On the whole,,
the prospect ol getting the Indians oil' is most bat
tering—thanks to the etl'orts of our noble volun
teers.
Tlie Indians are represented as being almost
without clothing and ammunition. Major Rector,
the government agent having charge of the emi
gration, will pay tliem nothing until they are
aboard of the steamer and properly registered,—-
This precaution seems to be satisfactory.
The number of warriors returned "is only 70— j
considerably less than has been generallv supposed j

those killed, the number will be found to enrres- j

ANOTHER RETT Kit FROM FREDERICK ROHA,
THE EX MORMON JUHII DRIEST.
lIIS PKUBOXAI. XAKHATIVE ANI ESCAPE FKOM SALT I.AKK
The New \ ork Time* publishes a second letter
from Frederick Loba, until lately a High Driest of
the Mormon Church. We -five below the more in
teresting portions;
Loba is a native of I.usance, in Switzerland, and
was manufacturer of gas on an improved princi
)>le until about five years since, when be yielded to
the persuasions of the Mormon Missionaries, and
emigrated to this country, arriving at St. l.ouis in
December, 18511. While in that city he was ap
pointed by Orson I'ratt, temporary President of a
Mormon church. Me soon discovered that his new
brethren were far from virtuous, anil learned to his
horror that ('apt. Cunnison was not murdered by
the Indians, but by Mormon assassins. Although
somewhat shaken, his taitb in Mormonism was not
yet abandoned, and he started for Salk Lake with
st rong confidence in the truth of his church, if not
in the sincerity of all its professed disciples.
On arriving in Utah, llrigham Voung presented
him with a house'and some land on condition that
he should manufacture gunpowder. Shortly after
he was made "Professor of Chemistry" and High
Priest, and initiated into the mysteries of the
Church, which at once opened his eyes to the terri
ble position in which he was placed, Ho found him
self in the midst of a wicked and degraded people,
with the conviction forced upon his mind that llrig
ham Young was at the bottom of all the clandestine
assassinations, plundering of trains, robberies of
mails, and the exemplar of every other species of
wickedness practised among his followers. Speak
ing of the unhappy effects of polygamy, he says:
I have seen two young sisters sold by their own
lather to General Horace Lldicilgo for some groce
ries. 1 hare seen men marrying both mother and
daughter. One nt my own personal acquaintances,
W. C. Stains—nuo of llrigham's favorite "destroy
ing angels" and spies—applied to the Prophet for
leave to take a third wife. Leave was granted.- -
The next day the lover appeared before llrigham
with his betrothed, when, greatly to his astonish
ment, that worthy changed the programme slightly,
and married the lady to himself, us he found her
a very pretty woman. Poor Stains accepted his
cruel bereavement as "a trial from the Lord."
lie accuses llrigham's brothers, and even the
prophet himself, of murder. If any body was even
accused of having indulged in anv disparaging re
marks concerning the head of the Church, that man
was certain to disappear suddenly ami mysteriously
—being privately destroyed. Ail the roads leading
to the Valley were generally infested by the de
stroying angels, either for purposes of murder or
plunder.
Disgusted with the condition of affairs, I.din pre
pared to escape. Notwithstanding all his dissimu
lation. he could not escape the suspicion of the
despots who surrounded him. lie was frequently
advised to take two or three wives—he had hut one
—but he always excused himself. This neglect, and
some remarks in regard to some of Brlgfiam's
friends, determined the latter to order lie- private
execution.
Finding that no time was to be lost, in company
with his wife, the latter dressed in men's clothes, he
started on the Ist of April, and after great suffer
ings reached Fort Laramie in safety, although pur
sued by thirty-two horsemen whom Brigbam had
dispatched to bring hi in back, Mr. Loba is de
scribed to be an intelligent and higlilv educated
man, and is now residing in Kansas.
THE (IitRAT FlIiR IX BOSTON'.
We have already given bricliv by telegraph a re
port of the lire and loss of life in Boston. In the
A'tn flin rof Monday we tiud the following details
of the sad calamity:
A disastrous lire broke out at about half-past one
o'clock yesterday morning in the six-story granite
warehouse, N'o. 1117 Federal street, occupied by the
Douglas Axe Manufacturing Company, and by-
Messrs. Sanborn, Basin A Rllsworth, as a book
bindery and printing office.
The lire is supposed to have originated in the up
per story. It spread with great rapidity and owing
to the height of its location it could not be easily
qnclled. In less than an hour Ihe roof was on lire
and the yvlinlo building in a blaze. The lire was
soon communicated to the adjoining store, occupied
by (Irani, Warren A Co., paper dealers, and passed
from story to story dotvnyvards, till the whale store
and its contents yvere destroyed.
Tyvo hosomen of Tremont engine. No. 12. yvere
standing on the roof of the brick dwelling house on
the corner of Milton Place, although they had been
cautioned against going there, when" the south
wall of the store fell, killing them instantly, and
burying them in the ruins. Their names yvere
John AN. Tuttle and Francis F. Cutting. An
Irishman, named Jerry ltearilon, who yvas coming
down stairs at the time, and a woman who lived
in the house, yvere both seriously- injured, and were
taken to the hospital. At the last accounts they
yvere still living. Babbitt's soap store, the next
north of Grant, Warren A C'o.'s. anil a building in
Milton Place, yvere also crushed by the tailing ot
yvalls.
Messrs. Sanborn, Bazin A Eilsyvorth bad an en
tirely new stock of presses, tools, Ac., together
yyitli upwards of seventy thousand dollars' worth
of stereotype plates in'the cellar of the building.
The .N'OIIOI/111/ h'liitiii'i O'nzetle states their insurance
to be in the following offices, and to (he follow ing
amounts: In the Hope, $2,500; Conway, $4,500;
PRICE TWO CENTS
Shoe and Readier Dealers, $4,<!00; Quinev Fire Mu
tual, §2.500; Metropolitan, §4,000; City of New
Haven, $5,000; Home,ss,ooo: Charter Oak, $4,000;
Hampden s4,ooo—making a total of $55,500. The
stock of Messrs. Grant, Warren <k Co., was large
pT rt 'at value. Their insurance is not known
definitely, but is supposed to he between $70,000
and $BO,OOO. Nothing was saved except the books
and accounts. ( urtis Pitman, who kept a groccrx
C^ rn ° r <>f Milton !' la ce. was insured for
.-,( ((. rho insurance of the granite stores, which
were owned by John (J. Torrey, is stated at $2O 000
in the Merchants' ottice.
Several Irish tenements in Federal Court were
badlv burnt but the lire was at last overcome.
This fire is the most disastrous that we have hail
to record for several years. The total loss of pro
perty equals, if it does not exceed, that at the tier
risli market fire, a little more than two years ago.
The ruins were smoking all dav-yesterdav and hist
evening, and thousands visitei|tiie,scene. - Ap,u,ti,.a
of the high granite wall on Federal street, and the
brick wall on the north side,'are still standing, but
are liable to fall at any time.
The bodv of Cutting, the fireman, was recover
ed at 8 o'clock yesterday morning, and that of Tut
tie at 10. No other lives were lost. There was a
rumor yesterday afternoon, that two men were
buried in the ruins in the rear of the burning build
ings. but we could not ascertain its truth.
The lire extended back from Federal street to Fed
eral court, and threatened to extend to a stable and
some other buildings in the rear, hut by the exer
tions of the firemen it, was confined to the limits
above stated. Engines from Koxburv, Cambridge,
and Cliarlestoh, were on hand promptly andrendei
ed good service. , ,

1Y WHOM, ANH WHEN, WERE THE < I'£KR Ml NFS OF
LAKE SITKIUOR Fmst \\"ff KKl ? Tin- various iin
pigments and other.traces of former mines that have
been discovered by the present .workers of the cop
per mines of Lake Superior, havenaturallvawaken
ed a curiosity as to who these earlier miners were,
and at what historical period their labors were be
stowed.
In Captain Jonathan Carver's travels, there is a
passage that may throw light upon this subject.
J he Captain, who was a native of Connec ieut, was
upon Lake Superior in 1707, when he saw a profu
sion of copper; and in his remarks respecting it, he
saws :
4< A company of adventurers from England begun,
soon after the conquest of Canada, to bring awav
some of this metal,' brft the distracted situation of
at lairs in America, has obliged* thuiu to rclinqui>)i
their scheme."
Quebec, fell in 17.711, and the.prompt submission <l
all Canada followed: although it was four years In
ter that peace was tinally signed between Phigland
and France.
It was, then, between 17.7!), when Quebec wa*
captured, and 1707. the darte at which Carver was
sit tin; mines, that this of adventurers
troin England" made this attempt to bring awav
some ot the copper. The operations of these men,
therefore, at the mines, were one hundred years
ago: and the question arises whether the tools and
other traces of former work there, which the pi es
ent miners have found, were those of these people?
And, again, if we find that those traces are of older
date than that, then where are tin; traces that these
"ailventurers" did leave behind them, when tliev
abandoned what they had begun?
ARTESIAN WEFT, AT LOI ISVIFLK —SAT.T WVTFR
Forxn.—Our enterprising fellow-citizens, ('. I.
A. \ . Dupont, who have for some months been bor
ing an.artesian well to supply their paper mill with
water, have now rdJtohed the depth of 1,7110 feet.
They have penetitotctf* a reservoir of saltwater,
which from this great depth w ill suinl up a stream
to she top of a mill, about fifty feet above the sur
face of the earth." The subterranean pressure of
this column *f water may be said to be strong
enough to throw it up 120 feet, since, the present
stream is borne through a bed of vand 70 feet
deep, after it leaves the orifice in the stone, be
fore it reaches* the surface of the earth, and is then
forced fifty feet above the surface of the earth.
It. is possible that the stream of water now running
from the well might be borne much higher if none
ot its force were lost. The tube through which it
passes is only one inch in diameter, while the bore
of the well is three and a half inches. This small
tube, with one end wrapped round so ns to enlarge
it, is inserted in the bore. Of-course the insertion
cannot !*• water pi'of, and ir.ucli of the force which
hears up the stream'is lost. With a tube the size of
the hore closely inserted! a larger volume of water
might be decidedly salty. The temperature wa.s
<ll Fahrenheit, while that of the air was 52 a
ditteremv of !I . The Messrs. Dupont turrr- nut M L
determined what they will do, hut. the probability is
that they will go deeper. Mr. Kellogg, their''su
perintendent. thinks there is another reservoir at
the depth of 2,1100 feet, fed by the drain from the
llenson Hills, that will suit much better. They
will decide in a day or two whether they will bole
into this deeper reservoir.—LmitHvUh Cnm irr.
The town of Springfield, Conway county, Ar
kansas, was visited on the 20th of April by a de
structive tornado, which swept awav many of the
the largest and best houses, leaving no traces of
where the}* had formerly stood. So sudden was the
squall that some thought, as their houses were un
roofed or blown down, that it was the efleet of
lightning. The clerk's otlice, a stout frame build
ing, was unroofed, the windows blown in, doors
shivered on the hinges, and what was still worse,
many record hooks completely drenched by the tor
rents of rain that followed. The old court house
was swept entirely aw ay. The tops of the houses
were blown off, and the bed clothes and w earing
apparel of the imates were blown away. Miracu
lously, no lives were lost, and, with the exception of
a few slight bruises, no one was hurt.
In demolishing the walls of the old (toshenhopperi
Church, near Norristown, Fa., week before last, the
corner-stone -was found in the north-east corner of
the building. It is a sandstone, about one and :i
half feet long, and fifteen inches in breadth. It con
tained two small coins, one dated and the other
lfi.Vi. The one is supposed to be an Fnglish, and
the other a Herman coin. A small tlask containing
some tasteless liquor, supposed to have been wine,
and a quantity of black mouldered parchment, w ere
also found in it. This was one of the oldest chur
ches in the country, having been erectcd in the year
1714.

indicted for the minder of Win. Durst, was tried on
Friday, and found guilty of manslaughter. The
wife and four children of the prisoner were present
in emirt, .and pathetically appealed for his release,
moving the jury to tears,and exciting the sympathy
of every man in the court-house.
The Buffalo Courier says that the Western Trans
portation Company shipped more flour bv canal on
Saturday tlian during the wliole season of 1857: ami
lurtlier, that tliey will ship during the present
week, at. least 10,000 barrels. We are satisfied,
from what we learn of contracts already made ami
to lie made, that more Hour will be shipped from
Buffalo by canal during the month of May, than
during the whole season of 1857.
Mil Tuesday last, eight Germans, who had been
indicted at Washington, I). for an outrage upon
a German woman between Washington ami illadens
burg, Mil., on the t llb olt., were brought to trial,
and live were convicted. Charles iloflinan was sen
tenced to fifteen years' imprisonment in the peni
tentiary, with hard labor, and John Sitzer. David
Franek, Win. Schmidt, and Merman Julius, to
twelve vcars each. The other three were acquit
tell. '
Saturday last, the first of May, was "moving
day" in New York, as usual, and it is believed there
were more changes of residence in that eitv and
Brooklyn than have occurred for many years. A
large proportion of houses are now standing empty,
and rents have fallen n the Fast river side of tie
city, about 25 per cent. In Brooklyn alone there
are some two hundred houses without tenant.'.
