[Letterfrom a New York Artist.] WASHINGTON, June 5, 1858. | To the Editors of the F.ccuiug Post: oil may perceive, by the date of this, that J gave myself just time enough to wash oil' the dnst and i : cinders that so unceremoniously accumulate 011 a ! railroad traveler, to comply with lav promise to I pen down a description of the very interesting I j Artists' Excursion on the Baltimore and Ohio Rail- j road. 11 seems that the directors of several roads had in contemplation last year to invite a body of art c ists to pass some tiuie leisurely on tlie western roads, to see, enjoy, and, if they wished, to sketch j some of tlie most attractive vieivs on their way; t but as the invitations increased to upwards of a i thousand guests of all professions and callings, it I could not longer be an Artists' Excursion. It was ! ! therefore resolved by the directors of the Baltimore i j Railroad to give an exclusive invitation to artists j the present year. About twenty of the profession—though the Com- , puny would have been glad to invite more had thev t, means to accommodate a larger number—hail 1 their rendezvous at the Gilmor House, Baltimore, [ j on the ..Ist ot May, where a bountiful dinner j awaited the guests from various cities: and here the ' : company was introduced to Wm. I'rescott Smith, ! ' S VJ'U "tendeiit of the road, a gentleman to whom ! ' all of us have now become greatly attached, after an , acquaintance of hut seven days, j Tuesday, six o'clock in the "morning, was the hour j lor us to start. The train consisted of a beautiful i I engine, dressed with gay flags; a kitchen oar, in ! which every nook and corner was piled with things ! that would delight the inner lnau; a dining saloon; ! ! a_ parlor car, containing the requisite of one of i j Knabe & Co's. best pianos; two dressing cars, con | ! taining sofas, lounges, writing desks, Ac.; a car j expressly fitted up for photographic purposes; and I ; last, hut not least, a smoking ear, thus making a ' I considerable show of a train. The company started I from the depot amidst cheering, ringing of bells, j ! the shrill steam whistle, and all the accompaniments i ot a railroad excursion a la Afiaard. In addition to Mr. W. P. Smith, I should mention our companions, Mr. Henry Tyson, Master of Ma i chinery, Inspector of Machinery, and 11. B. Latrobe, i Constructor of the road, who endeavored in every j way to give explanation of all the wonderful and beautiful objects that met the traveler's eve. The engine as well as tender and other available places, i were enlivened with groups of admirers, sketchers, or men of musical endowments, who warbled their ' merry songs into the whistling air. Harper's Per ! l'y was our first most noticeable stopping place, j and in one instant all the requisites for photograph- j ing were transported to different points, to take 1 impressions of Hie charming scenes before us. i Mr._Dubbin, of Baltimore, Mr. Guillou, of Phila- ! dclphiu, both distinguished lawyers as well as ama- 1 teur artists; Mr. Bartlett and Mr. O'Neill, of Wash- ! ington, were on this occasion the photographers, j who worked and tojled from morning until night j to take as many views as time would permit- -and i very excellent results they obtained. At Berkeley Springs we passed the first night,our ' friend-artist, Mr. Strother, the Porte-Crayon of I Harper's "Virginia Illustrated," inviting kinillv the ; whole company to spend the first evening at his fa j tlier's estate; and a charming place this Berkeley Springs is, with its balmy mountain air. No woii- J der that the belles fioui near and far assemble here, I since 1 am told that theliomely grow handsome, and I the beautiful stil] more bewitching. Had 1 space and tjine, 1 woqld give q description | of the songs, toasts, the humor and wit that graced ' the evening, concluding with a sight of the "ele ph.at." But more of this hereafter. Wednesday morning the company took to the i train agniu. and In the evening stopped again at ! Cumberland. Here a party took a special train to ( visit the coal mines and the famous Mount Savage i Iron Works. Wednesday morning was a "Teat day for all, as we were promised great sights in ascend- I ing the Alleghany mountains for seventeen miles, | over a grade of sixty-two feet per mile. The heavy ! rain the previous night seemed even to enhance the beauty of the gorgeous scenery. Who will forget the view below Bloomington, with its ir.eguTar white habitations dotting the glorious masses of green foliage, or the mountains so beautifully sepa- 1 rated in perspective ranges through immense clouds of mist that ascended hurriedly into the skies, while ! beneath the savage river rushed in sparkling break- | ers over its ragged bed. Who will forget the iron ; horses that steamed and pulled in advance, sending forth columns on columns of snowy steam, with the ! mists above it? Our kind conductor provided also ■ a hand of music, consisting of operatives of the : company, to add to the excitement. Grafton was our next station of repose, and on I Friday afternoon we reached Wheeling Railroad de- i pot, amidst the roar of cannon and the vociferous hurrahs of the lialf-naked muscular Vulcans that j worked the heated furnaces beneath a broiling sun. I Though little time was given to us to enjoy the bos- j pitality tendered to us by th- Mayor of that city, , we appreciated the kind feeling. ' At 11 o'clock in 1 the evening of Friday we started to return, and ; reached Baltimore this afternoon, though not with \ the whole company, as some availed themselves of I the kind invitation to extend their trip to Colum bus. I cannot conclude, mv dear editor, without repeating again that the thanks of this party will be lasting, anil particularly to Messrs. Smith, Trgon, Latrobe, and Messrs. A. DifTcy and B. L. Jacobs, ! James Anderson and Robert French, and other ofli- ' cers of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company. ! L. L." THE CHOPS AT THE SOUTH. A correspondent of tlie Savannah Republican, from Muscogee county, writes: "V>u may safely say that the crop prospects of Georgia were never more flattering at any period of our history. This is universal, except a dry section, which I hear of in the south-eastern counties." Another from Dougherty county, says: "We had a good rain yesterday, and the growing crop looks line. I saw, this morning, two blooms on a stalk of cotton thirty-two inches high in a Held of one hundred acres, all of which is nearly the same size." Another from Wacnhoota, Fla., says: "Under the effect of the late genial showers, our crops of corn and cotton hare improved, and are as good now, nearly, as heart could wish, where the proper cultivation has been bestowed. Florida farming requires considerable science. Corn is in full silk and tassel. The farmer here can sit on his fence and see his cotton dotted with blooms. Showers plenty; mornings warm, the rest of the day re markably pleasant." * We have been been blessed with several fine, copious showers of rain since our last issue, which we learn extended throughout this entire section of country. Crops have been materially benefitted, and are growing finely. So far as we have learned, the oat crop in Decatur has been destroyed by rust. The failure of this crop is certainly a calamity of no small iinportauce to stock raisers and feeders in this section, and will liiaterially affect the corn market.— Bnmbridge AryWr, 'ld inxt. We had an opportunity on Saturday last of see ing and conversing with a number of our friends from various sections of the county, in attendance on the Democratic meeting, and was happy to learn from them in person that their crop prospects, both corn and cotton, were, upon the whole, very promising.— Ttillehaeeec Sentinel, Ist init. The Griffin Empire Shite of the 3d instant savs:— "We have of late been blessed with abundant rains, Corn and cotton arc growing finely, and look well. Wheat crops are now nearly ready for harvesting, and proruie an abundant yield. Some farmers complain of a rust, but there is not enough of this to create a panic in the flour market. The oat crop was thrown back by the late dry weather, but the bountiful rains during the last week have produced a fine effect upon this particular crop, and it bids fair to yield well. What is to be done with the grain ? Echo answers, what!" We are pleased to hear that the wheat crop r.f this District, which is now being harvested, turns out well. The rust has done but little damage, and the crop will be as large as last year. Corn is looking well. Jn fact, we have heard that it never looked better at this season of the vear.— Cotton is recovering from the frost and cold. It is somewhat backward, but looks healthy. From ap pearances there will be a good yield of fruit. — Lan rensrille lhrnltl. Within tlie past week all parts of the District have been visited with copious showers of rain. The crops, we learn, are in a nourishing condition, and, from present appearances, there w ill be an abun dance of everything. The health of the district is exceedingly good, and our people have great cause to rejoice.— liarntccll Sentinel, MOVEMENTS OF GENERAL WALKER. ANOTHER DESCENT ON NICARAGUA —3,000 .MEN TO INVEST THE SAN Ji AN RIVER.—A private dispatch from New Orleans informs the Brooklyn Sin, that the Steamship Company, chartered by the Alabama Legislature will run the first boat from Mobile to San .luan del Norte i Greytou n) on the 25th of this month, when Gen. Walker, with astrong vanguard and staff, with proper appointments of all kinds, will proceed to invest the San Juan river. He will be followed, as soon as practicable, by detachments of his army, so as to reinforce and concentrate a column of about three thousand men. This announcement comes from the vicinity of Ir isarri A Co., and is probably invented to frighten the Martinez faction into his terms. Walker might do for American interests on the Isthmus all that Congress has taken such care not to do; but the time for operations lias not quite ar rived. Tfe should uot be surprised if, Home months j henee, n hen the rainy season i orer, General llW&er ; should aeeede to the solUsitation* of the Liberal party, and return to Afiearayua irith the necessary menus to ! establish a firm and stable peaee in that distracted country. — UtisA. Slates. THE DISTINGUISHED PHYSICIAN ONCE MOKE.— The Evansrillc, Indiana, Juurual publishes a letter from a lady who, while in England, became intimate with the second wife of the late Dr. .1. P. Holmes, who died so miserably at Evansville a few weeks since. From Mrs. Holmes she learned the reason of her husband's mysterious desertion of his coun try and family. His extravagant habits had em barrassed him so much that his wife gave him £2,- 000 of her private property, and he w as desirous of obtaining £4,000 more from the same source. On this being refused him he became angry, and he made threats which were afterward remembered. A short time only had elapsed, when Mrs. Holmes, being"afflicted with sick headache, her husband left her a phial of medicine. She did not like its taste, and sent it to an apothecary for examination. He at once pronounced it to he poison, when in great alarm she fled for protection to her mother. She was ill for several weeks, and when able to go out, went to the bank to draw some money. To her surprise she learned that the doctor had been there with a ladv who personated herself, and had draw n the whole amount. He was afterward heard of in America, but she was unable to trace him farther than New York. i UORRESPONDENOE WITH LADY FRANKLIN. The following letters will he read with interest.— ' , In every new position in which Lady Franklin ap- ! ! pears before the public she shines with additional moral beauty—a true-liearted and noble woman in every relation of life.— Nut. Jnteltiyenrcr. [ From Sidney Kopman, Secretary of the ban. Monument j Association, to Lady Franklin.] CITY OF NEW YORK, Dec. 25,1557. 1 Honored Lady: —As a co-laborer for the ac- I couiplishinent of'a work which is intended to carry j down to future generations in pristine freshness the names of Franklin and Kane, it is meet that 1 should communicate to you some knowledge of the work and the progress already made in it, and in doing j so I assure myself that f shall afford you some diT- J gree of pleaAlre. Accompanying this communication you will re- ! ceive a pamphlet containing a lull account of the proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Free and .Ac cepted Masons of the State of New York, by which the work now in hand was suggested. Soon alter the delivery of the eulogy, which you ' will find in the pamphlet, a proposition was made , to organize a new Masonic Lodge in this citv, to be ; composed of a number of our best citizens," and to be termed "Kane Lodge," in honor of Elisha K. i Kane, whose name and late history are inseparable from those of your intrepid and illustrious husband; for when the name of Doctor Kane shall he known i to the passing and future generations, at least in ! our country, there will also be known the name of Sir John Franklin, whether the name of Doctor j Kane he carried down by monuments of stone or on , pages of history. The object in'forming "Kane Lodge" is to raise ! money for tlie construction of a marble monument, j one hundred feet high, to the memory of Doctor Kane, on some public ground in this city, and in , the inscription, which will occupy a portion of one s 'de of the base, the name of Sir John Franklin will necessarily appear; and children, the neglected and I uneducated, w ill become familiar with the histories ' ot two heroes, who were brothers in the mystic ties i of our Order. lam glad to say a fine suit of rooms ' is being prepared for the holding t the Lodge; and, in a lew words, everything pertaining to our con- j templated work goes handsomely onward, and I ! trust that before the expiration of the next three | years I shall have the happiness of convey ing to vou I what 1 believe would he pleasing intelligence—that our praiseworthy and noble work lias been com pleted. This letter, my dear lady, is not written with the ; object of obtaining a subscription from you, which, ! for certain Masonic reasons, could not be accepted, ! even if you were to offer it. It is prompted by a ! deep and abiding respect for the nohlc-hcartcd and devoted wife, who has clung even to a last glimmer- ' ing rav of hope for the safety of a long-absent hus band beyond the ice belt of the north. Such devotion is an example for wives in all fu- | ture generations; an example which, it is hoped, will command emulation amongst our American ' wives. lam also prompted bv a desire to inform I you of what we are doing in memory of the dead I and the missing in whom you feel an interest. Having written thus much, I assure myself that yon would deem any attempt at an apology for the I liberty I take entirely out of place and inappropri ate, and with such expression, I am, excellent ladv, most sincerely, your obedient servant, Lady Franklin, London. SIDNEY KOPMAN. REPLY OP LADY FRANKLIN. 00 FALL MALL, LONDON, March 12,1858. ! Dear Sir : —I have to apologise to you for tlie delay I which lias ocourrcd in acknowledging your kind let tor and accompanying pamphlet, which, owing to ! my absence from town, did not reach me so soon as ! they would otherwise have done. Nov will 1 dis- ' anise from you that I have labored under some em- | barrassment as to what answer to return to your 1 very kind communication. You will not besurpt is- I ed at this when 1 tell you, as 1 feel obliged to do, (though it is very reluctantly.) that till ~ I read of ; the honorable notice you have taken, and intend ! takingof my dear husband in connection with l)r. j Kane as a brother Freemason, I am Ignorant that \ he could have any claim to that noble friend's sym path it's, or to your peculiar regard on the ground ! of fellowship in your mystic art. 1 wish it were j otherwise. 1 could almost wish that it could he proved this was the only secret my dear husband ever preserved towards me, so willing am 1 to forego the distinc tion conferred rn liini, or to appear ungrateful for or indifferent to pastor coming kindness. If cliiv alric self-devotion, universal charity, good will to mankind, purity and uprightness of'"conduct, he. as I believe they are, the fundamental virtues and im perative obligations of your mystic brotherhood, of which your Masonic emblems are only the pic turesque and poetic emblems, my husband was worthy to be your brother. You will never, lam sure, withdraw from him those kind and generous feelings to which his memory will ever be entitled in the holy bonds of christian love. It is impossible for me not to regret that you do not admit ot a brunch sisterhood of fellowship in good works, when I am told that for certain Mason ic reasons you could not accept any contribution on my part to the monument which the Kane Lodge is about to erect to the memory of my dear lamented friend. However, the monument, without my aid, will attain its one hundred feet of elevation. " If f ever look at it, standing in some area of your heaa tilul city, it shall be without grudging that I was not allowed to help in building it up, and with all the admiration which I am sure it n ill deserve. I will, by you, if von think proper so to do, con vey my grateful acknowledgments to Colonel de Coin and the other members of the fraternity, ot whom you are the Secretary, and believe me, dear sir, Your obliged friend, JAKE FHANKMX. Sidney Kopman, New Y'ork. NEW YORK NEWS—JUNK 9. Unusual activity prevails at, the Navy Yard, Brooklyn. The sloop-of-war Constellation, which returned only a few days since, from a three years' cruise, is ordered to be"fitted for the Gulf without delay. Two weeks only remain to complete the time for which her crew shipped, and there is much dissatisfaction at being sent awav so soon again, when they are so soon entitled to their discharge. Provisions and ammunition are going on board, and she will be ready to depart by Saturday. Work on the Savannah and Sabine is being pushed forward with all dispatch. The Naval Department have in quired as to the practicability of titling the North Carolina for sea, and the probable expense of re pairing her. Her bottom is said to be sound, but it wonld cost as much to razee her and fit her for ac tive service as to build a new sloop-of-war. The anniversary of the Marine Temperance So ciety was held last evening in the Mariners' church. From the annual report it appears that the total number of mariners who have signed the pledge is 31,271. 471 members have joined the society since their last annual meeting. Tlie annual examination of the hoys of the Koman Catholic Orphan Asylum took place yesterday after noon at the institution in Fifth avenue, before Arch bishop liughes, and alarge number of persons. The exercises were very creditably performed. Ad dresses were delivered bv the Archbishop, the State Superintendent of Schools nnd others. The Special Committee on the proposed Found ling Hospital, met on Tuesday, when Dr. A. 1!. Mott strongly urged the expediency of the forma tion of such an institution. The President of the Board of Councilmcn spoke strongly on the same side, and the Committee (of whom Councilman Galpin is Chairman) seem unanimous in their dispo sition to report to the Board favorably. The gold medal presented by the survivors of the crew of the steam frigate Susquehanna to Dr. Rose, is on exhibition at Tiffany A Co.'s, in Broadway.— The medal is of solid gold, and weighs live ounces. It is about two inches in diameter, and the border is curiously formed into the semblance of a rope.— On one side is a beautiful representation of the Sus quehanna, and on the other is engraved the follow ing inscription: Presented to Assistant Surgeon FREDERICK H. HOSE, K. X., By the remnant of the crew of the United States frigate Susquehanna, who returned to the United States in good health, as a mark of their apprecia tion of his generously volunteered professional ser vices rendered their shipmates, who were afflicted with yellow fever, April, 1858. Tin' annual examination of the West Point Mili tary Academy lias been in progress for some days, and will probably be finished early next week. PHILADELPHIA NEWS—JUNE 9 The annual meeting of the stockholders of the Academy of Music was held on Monday. The old Board with one exception was re-elected. Mr. Na than Taylor was chosen in place of -Mr. Charles llenry Fisher, who declined to serve. The Board is composed of the following gentlemen: Messrs. James C. Hand, President; James Traquair, J. P. Steiner, F. J. Breer, L. J. Levy, Fred. Uracil*, Sam uel Branson, Isaac S. Waterman, George l'epper, E. Rodgers, John B. Budd, and X. Taylor. The attendance at the Academy of Music last, eve ning was respectable and appreciative, hut not as large as had been expected. In fact, considering the attractions offered, the audience was decidedly a meagre one. Formes was welcomed back most heartily. Yesterday afternoon, from previous information received, the Mayor's detectives arrested Charles Ilergeishcmer, alias Dr. Hubert, and Mrs. Hubert, on the charge of murder, in having caused the death of Anna MeUucken. It will be remembered that the body of the unfortunate w oman was found in AUibone's woods, Twenty-fourth ward, having been there deposited, as is alleged, by those now under arrest. Capt. Smith, of the schooner Shenard A. Mount, which arrived at this port a few days since, from Nassau, reports that while at breakfast on the 20th of May, at sea, his son, Warren Smith, aged four teen years, fell overboard. The lad was not missed for some time, and when it was discovered that he was not on hoard, the captain ordered the vessel to turn back and keep as near her original course as possible. In three hours after the boy was missing, he was found swimming and rescued." The boy did not seem to be very much fatigued, and said he could have kept up an hour longer. A private trial of the new steam engine, built for the Hope Hose Company, took place in Kensington on Monday afternoon. The engine was stationed on the Delaware and drew her supply of water from the river. The first trial was with an inch nozzle through fifty feet of hose. Tim stream was thrown, solid, a distance of 20m feet "> inches, hori zontally. The next trial was through two tilty feet sections, with three quarters ot an inch nozzle. Three streams were thrown InO feet. The Commandant of the Philadelphia navy yard ; received a communication troin M ashington, yes terday morning, asking how soon the vessels on the stocks, and others, can be got ready for sea. '/adoek Street, who was charged with obtaining 310,000 in notes of the Shamokin Bank, under false i PRICE TWO CENTS pretence, was yesterday held to hail by Alderman Thompson in the snm of $12,000 to answer at court. (In Monday night oflicer Morris attempted to dis perse a gang of some twelve or fifteen rowdies, who had assembled on the corner of Water anil Callow hill streets in the Kterenth ward.

THE LOBBY AGAINST THE ATLANTIC TEL EGRAPH. WASHINGTON*, June 8, 1858. ' T. P. Staffncr, Amos Kendall, and other inter ested partisans of the Morse Telegraph patentees, have been very conspicuous among the lobby for some months past, and through the good nature of Senator Bigler have been allowed to flood both houses of Congress with a mass of unsupported charges against the Atlantic Telegraph Company, and yesterday the wires of the Magnetic and New England Union Companies were thrown open to these lobby gentlemen to enable them to circulate, free, special dispatches to The Ihdtimarc Sim, Phil <ultdphia Ledyer, N. 17 hlceniuy Post, and other journals in their interest, statements to the effect that the Judiciary Committee had framed a hill re pealing the Telegraph act of 1857, on the ground that the Atlantic Company had handed oyer their line to the British Government. It is scarcely necessary to say that the special dispatches were entirely destitute of truth. No ac tion whatever has been taken by the Judiciary Com mittee of the House, nor has the Senate Committee to whom Stnffner's and Kendall's memorials have been referred, expressed any opinion, nor taken any action adverse to the interests ot the Company en gaged in the great enterprise of connecting Europe and America by telegraph, ft is understood that Senator Bigler, at the earnest solicitation of Amor Kendall, was induced to introduce a bill in the Sen ate to-day to repeal the Telegraph aet of last year, but he did it in his individual capacity, anil without the sanction of the Committee who have the various Telegraph memorials tinder consideration. The movement of Mr. Bigler is regarded here as an at tempt on the part of Staffner, Kendall & Co. to mystify the public by putting forward an individu al Senator's movement as the deliberate action of i Congress and the Government. — Cor. X. 7Vi5. A PERSONAL DIFFICULTY IN THE SENATE. An e.vciting passage of arms took place on Tues day in the Senate,between Mr. Davis of Mississippi, and Mr. Benjamin of Louisiana. Mr. Benjamin was speaking on the Army bill, when Mr. Davis said, "1 will correct the Senator, as that seems to be the point of his argument. The Secretary of War does ask money for breech-load j ing arms', costing from $30,000 to' $40,000, and part. l of this SIOO,OOO is to go in this way, according to his application." Mr. Benjamin replied: "1 do not understand j that the Secretary has asked for any part of this j SIOO,OOO to purchase breech-loading lire arms. If he has, 1 am very much mistaken." Mr. Davis—"Oh, I will state the very simple fact that he asks for money to buy breech-loading arms. VV hether this $100,(too is to be paid out of the Treasury I do not know." | To this Mr. Benjamin replied—-"ft is very easy for the Senator to give a sneering reply as to what , was certainly a very respectful inquiry." ' Mr. Davis—'' 1 consider it as an attempt to mis j represent a verv plain remark." Mr. Benjamin—"The Senator is mistaken, and has ' no right to state any such thing. Ilis manner is I not agreeable at all." Mr. Davis—"lf the Senator happens to find it 1 disagreeable, I hope he will keep it. to himself." Mr. Benjamin— lt was directed to me, and I will not keep it to niA'self. I will reply to it instanter." Mr. Davis— "You have got it, Sir." Mr Benjamin —"That is enough. Sir. 1 shall not again be diverted from my public duties." It is everywhere rumored, and believed true, that ; Mr. Benjamin has sent Mr. Davis a challenge. The affair is serious, and mutual friends ever since the colloquy have been engaged in the endeavor to ef fect an honorable adjustment of the difficulty.
