VICTORIA BRIDGE, CANADA. —Although the Britan nia bridge represented the most scientific distribu tion of material which could be devised at the date of its construction, it has since been improved upon by the same engineer in the \ictoria bridge, now in the course of construction across the river St. Lawrence, near Montreal. The Victoria bridge is, without exception, the greatest work of the kind in the world. For gipintic proportions and vast length and strength there is nothing to compare with it in ancient or modern times. The entire bridge, with its approaches, is only about sixty yards short of two miles. It is live times longer than the Britannia bridge across the Menai StraTts, i seven-and-a-half times longer than Waterloo bridge, ! and more than ten times longer than the new Chelsea bridge across the Thames! The Victoria ! has not less than 24 spans of 242 feet each, and one ! great central span—itself an immense bridge of 330 ; feet. The road is carried within iron tubes GO feet j above the level of the St. Lawrence, which runs be- ( neath at a speed of about 10 miles an hour, and in | winter brings down the iee of some 2000 miles of i lakes and upper rivers, with their numerous tribu- | taries. The weight of iron in the tubes will be up wards of 10,000 tons, supported on massive stone | piers, each of solid masonry. So gigantic a work, J involving so heavy an expenditure,' has not been ! projected without sufficient cause. The Grand Trunk Railway of Canada—one of the greatest na- : tional enterprises ever entered on—is upwards of 1100 miles in length, opening up a vast extent of; fertile territory for the purposes of future immigra tion, and, by connecting the settled provinces of Western Canada with the seaboard States of the American Union, calculated to afford full scope for the development of the industrial resources of that i magnificent colony. Without the Victoria bridge the system of communication would have been man ifestly incomplete; the extensive series of Canadian j railways on the nortli side of the St. Lawrdnce, i terminating opposite Montreal would, for all pur- J poses of through traffic, be virtually sealed up dur ing the six months of the vear that the St. Law- I rence is closed against navigation bv the ice. and 1 the Grand Trunk system must necessarily have re- l mained to a great extent nugatory, in consequence of the province being cut off from the coast, to j which the commerce of Canada naturally tends. j Quarterly Revieto. THE CHESAPEAKE AND Onio CANAL continues the ! excellent business we previously reported. During the week last past an extraordinary degree of ac tivity has pervaded this end of the line, showing what a trade must and will be developed when the canal shall have become quite reliable , and suggest ing the necessity of a great extension of facilities for unloading and shipping along tide-water. Since our last weekly report there have been entered at i the Georgetown collection office one hundred and j twenty-nine boats, of which twelve were laden with j wheat, corn, limestone, wood, and general country | pro luce, and the remaining one hundred and sev- | enteen with coal, bringing a total during the week ! of a little less than 13,000 tons. The receipts for j the week were 50,450, one of the very best exhib ' its since the canal has been in operation. The water was let off'the Georgetown level on Saturday night ! in order to remove a large stone in the bed' of the canal, which it is conjectured was blown from a blast hard bv on the line of the Washington Aque duct. All Is right by this time, and the level re- 1 filled.— National Intelligencer. FROM MEXICO.— Dates from Matamoras to the 19th of July are received via New Orleans. Du rango had fallen into the hands of the forces under ! the Governor of Chihußhua, who declared for the Constitution of 1857. Guanajuato, Guadalajara and . Zacatecas had also been conquered bv the Liberals, i General Garza had left Matamoras to superintend , in person the movements of the Tamaulipas forces, j General Vidaurri was to take the field on the 27th, j at the head ot the main body of the army of the ! North. Immediately on taking San Luis Potosi, General Zuazua banished the Bishop and thirty priests, for encouraging the reactionary forces to resist his entrance. Miss FOX. —An interesting ceremony took place at St. Peter's (Roman Catholic) Church, New I York, on Sunday, the occasion being the baptism of ' the famous Miss Margaret Fox, for some years past : well known to the public as one of the highest priestess of Spirilualitm. Marget having recently I renounced that heresy, has been received into the j church, and bids fair to become one of its shining lights. Miss Fox entered the vestibule of the Churchy previous to the mass, accompanied by numerous friends of both sexes, among them her mother, her sister Kate, (who still is a spiritualist,) and Horace Greeley, who remained at her side all the while she was in church. The officiating clergymen were Rev. Mr. Owen, the pastor, and Rev. Mr. Durning, j of ltondout. Andrew Jackson Davis, and sundry I other eminent Spiritualists were among the spec | tators of the ceremony. ! M THE BL ° CI -DE RIVIEIIF. AFFAIR.—A SLIOHT r .\^ KE " .

NICH OLAS BREWER, Secretary, it bring the annual meeting of the Association. The report of the Executive Committee set forth, that on the 17th of August, 1557, the muster roll of the Association numbered two hundred and eighty-six members,since which time eleven have l>e n admitted, making two hundred and ninety-seven. During the past year the following members have died : Capt. ROBERT CONWAY, Col. SAMUEL MCCLENNAN, DANIEL HOPE, JOHN B. MARTIN, HENRY STRICKLAND, EDWARD P. ROBERTS, and JOHN H. MUNROE— seven in all; being two less than during the preceding year, and ten less than the years 1855-'56. During the same period five members have withdrawn, leaving a total membership at this time, of two hundred and eighty five. A communication was received from Col. S. S. MILLS, Cor responding Secretary of the WELLS and MCCOMAS Monu inent Association, inviting the Old Defenders to unite with them in the laying of the corner stone of the WELLS k MC COMAS monument, on the 12th of September next. A motion was made that the communication lay on the table, inasmuch as to accept it would be a departure from their rule, of spending the day in some retired spot and partaking of an anniversary dinner. This reason was urged by several members, and the motion finally so amended that the President was requested to respectfully decline the invitation. It was determined to celebrate the coming anniversary of the battle of North Point, and that such celebration he had outside of the city limits, and a committee consisting of Capt. ANDREW WARNER, Gen. ANTHONY MII.TENLER" OER, and Messrs. GEO. ROGERS and JAS. LUCAS, was ap pointed to select a proper place for the coming celebration, and to select an orator for the occasion, and to rcj>ort at an adjourned meeting, to be held on Monday evening next. The 12thof September coming upon the Sabbath, the celebration will take place on the 13th, and the Assigna tion resolved to attend divine worship on the Pith, and appointed a committee, consisting of Messrs. SAMUEL CHILD, NICHOI. \s BREWER, and THOS. EVANS, to select the Church, and make all other necessary arrangements with that view. It was suggested, and warmly urged, that the Association celebrate the coming anniversary at Mount Vernon, and it is not improbable that this most ap propriate spot will be selected. ANOTHER DIFFICULTY AT LOCUST POlNT.— Yesterday morning word was sent to Marshal HF.RUINO, that a diffi culty was pending at this place, between a party who was engaged in unloading a coal boat, and others who .were endeavoring to drive them off, to got the job. lie imme diately issued orders for a posse of the police of the South ern District to repair to the spot, which order was prompt ly responded to by Deputy Marshal MANLY, Lieut.

HOOPF.R, who told those thus employed, that they (the assailants) re sided on Locust Point, and would allow no other parties to do work on that side of the basin, anil threatened the lives of the Germans if they did not leave. Tliey (the Germans) did as they were ordered, when the others pro ceeded to unload the vessel.

TRIAL OF SOLOMON T. WILLSON. [ Correspondence of the Daily Exchange.] VERDICT OF ACQUITTAL. KASTON, MD., August 14, 1858. To the Daily Exchange: State vs. Solomon T. Willson. Trial for Man slaughter. The Court was called at I*2 o'clock on Monday, when Judge Goi.nsßOßOraH delivered a brief opinion that the testimony of threats on the part oi deceased which the State had asked to be stricken out was proper and admissible, and must remain a part of the case. JAMES LLOYD MARTIN, Esq., the State's Attorney, then opened the argument before the jury ami spoke tor three hours, when the court, adjourned to 9 o'clock, A. M. the next day. At that hour. Mr. MARTIN resumed his argument and spoke till 12 o clock, making six hours in all that his speech had occupied. This gentleman has the reputation of being a very able State's Attorney, and be has shown that the reputation was well earned by the energy, ability and fidelity with which lie has con ducted this case to its close. He was followed br Mr. GRJSWOLD for the defence, who spoke up to the hour of adjournment at 3 o'clock, with his usual ability and force. On Wednesday morning Colonel IIAMBLETON commenced bis argument, and occupied five hours in its delivery. His impressive man ner well calculated win tho confidence and respect of an audience. Col. IIAMBLETON was followed, on Thursday morning, by Mr. PRES TON, whose reputation as a criminal lawyer and a speaker had excited an intense desire to hear him. Accordingly the court room was soon filled to its utmost capacity, and what is an unusual sight anywhere, a considerable portion of the audience were ladies—the elite of Kaston. There had been a small attendance of ladies during the speeches of the other gentlemen, but they dia not come out in such numbers until this day. The court room is provided with seats on each side of the bar, to the left of which the ladies were pleas antly seated. Mr. PRESTON spoke from 9 to 2 o'clock without concluding, and then a recess was taken till G o'clock, P. M., when he continued his argu ment four hours longer, concluding at half past ten. His speech was very eloquent, containing many passages of fine declamation, which doubtless repaid the ladies for the unusual draught upon their atten tion. On Friday, Judge CHAMBERS, on the part of the State, closed the argument. He spoke upwards of eight hours, and fully sustained his high reputa tion; when we say this it is unnecessary to characterize more minutely his clear and lucid arrangement of topics, the powerful logic ami great learning evinced in this ellbrt. His humor, ready wit, and brilliant repartee, whenever interrupted by opposite counsel, kept his audience, "tit, though few," amused and admiring. There were but few ladies in attendance to-dav. At the conclusion of the argument the defence ottered three prayers of instruction to the jury. After some conversation as to the right of the Jud'e to instruct the jury in a criminal case, the Stale ottered four prayers upon which they asked the jury to be instructed. His Honor said he would take all the prayers into consideration, digest his views upon the law of them, and present them to the jury for what they were worth. Tliev would be merely the opinion of the Court, which the jury, under the Constitution, were not bound to regard in a criminal case, they being the judges of the law and the fact. The Court then adjourned to !) o'clock on Satur day morning, when instructions to the following effect were given to the jury: Ist. If the jury believe from the evidence that the prisoner had a reasonable ground to believe that there was a formed design on the part of tho de ceased, to take away the life of the prisoner, or do him some great bodily harm, and that tho occasion was sought to carry* into effect such design, that then the killing was excusable upon the ground of self defence. 2d. If the jury should believe from the evidence that the prisoner was assailed by the deceased un der circumstances denoting an intention to take away his life, or do him great bodily harm, and that when so assaulted he retreated as far as the vi olence and suddenness of the attack would allow, with safety; and that he used his knife after he had so retreated, and while his life was in imminent peril, that then he was justified in killing his assail ant to save his own life. 3d. That if the jury believe from the evidence that the prisoner stabbed and killed John I'. Jirad shaw, on the night of 26th of June, 1855, with a deadly weapon in a mutual fight, when no weapon had been exhibited by the deceased, or used by him during said conflict; and that the prisoner did not attempt to avoid the combat or retreat therefrom at the time of the attack or afterwards, but main tained his ground and returned the blows given by the fist of the deceased, with blows by an instru ment calculated to produce death, that then he is guilty of the charge contained in the indictment, even though he hail been previously warned in tho manner testified to, of a design on the part of others to whip him, and even though he was upon his hack on the ground at the time he gave the fatal blows. 4th. 'that the facts which constitute that imperi ous necessity recognized by the lawful killing an adversary must be judged of by the jury, as well as the reasonable ground of tlie belief entertained by the prisoner as to the danger that surrounds him, which must be well founded and reasonable to justify or excuse him. After receiving these instructions, the jury were conducted to the room to deliberate upon the ver dict. Thev remained in consultation about two hours, and it was beginning to be whispered that the jury would not agree, and would have to bo discharged, as they had been in the first trial, when a loud rap within their room announced their read iness to deliver their verdict. As they caine into the crowded court-room breathless silence reigned. The prisoner retained his seat in his recumbent and bowed posture, and awaited with feelings which cannot be conceived, the calling over of the jury, the question of the clerk, and the answer "Not guilty/' Every one bent forward to catch the words, and in an instant the room resounded with applauding shouts and clapping of hands, which was as quickly repressed by the Court. Numbers then crowded around Willson and shook him warmly bv the hand. The only manifestation of deep feeling we observed on the part of him who had just been de livered from so great peril, was the bowing of his head to the jury, and the warm but modest way in which ho grasped the hand of one of his counsel. The Court meets ajrnin on Monday for the dis charge of business which was postponed from the regular May term. "Judge CAUMICIIAEL will pre side. Judge GOLDSBOROUGH has won much ap plause during his brief term, and "golden opin ions fro o all sorts of people;" certainly the mild dignity of his bearing, his suavity and firmness, (auavitcr inmodo fortiter in r<?) and his readiness in deciding the numberless points which arose dur ing the trial, giving his opinions in a remarkably clear, lucid and convincing manner, €'ntitle him to very high praise as a .fudge.

THE DICKENS DOMESTIC AFFAIR. The following letters are in circulation among the friends of Mr. and Mrs. Dickens : TAVISTOCK HOUSE, TAVISTOCK SQUARE, ) LONDON, W. E., Tuesday, May 25, 1858. J M Y DEAR AUTHUR : You have not only my full permission to show this, but I beg you to show, to any one who wishes to do me right, or to any one who may have been misled into doing me wrong. To ARTHUR SMITH, Esq. Faithfully, &c., C. D. TAVISTOCK HOUSE. TAVISTOCK SQUARE, ) LONDON, W. E.,Tuesday, May 35, 1858. ) Mrs. Dickens and I have lived unhappily together for many years. Hardly any one who has known us intimately can fail to have known that we are, in all respects of character ami temperament, wonder fully unsuited to each other. I suppose that no two people, not vicious in themselves, ever were joined together,who had a greater difficulty in understand ing one another, or who had less in common. An attached woman servant (more friend to both of us than a servant,) who lived with us sixteen years, and is now married, and who was, and still is in Mrs. Dickens' confidence and in mine, who bad the closest familiar experience of this unhappiness, in London, in the country in France, in Italy, wher ever we have been, year after year, month after month, week after week, day after day, will bear testimonv to this. Nothing lias, on many occasions, stood between us and a separation hut Mrs. Dicken's sister, Oeorgine Hogarth. From the age of lifteen, she has devoted herself to our house and our children. She has been their playmate, nurse, in structress, friend, protectress, adviser and compan ion. In the manly consideration toward Mrs. Dick ens which I owe to my wife, I will merely remark of her that the peculiarity of her character has thrown all the children on some one else. Ido not know— I cannot by any stretch of fancy imagine—what would have become of them lint for this aunt, who has grown up with them, to whom they are devoted, and who has sacrificed the best part of her youth and life to them. She lias remonstrated, reasoned, suffered and toiled, and came again to prevent a separation be tween Mrs. Dickens and me. Mrs. Dickens has of ten expressed to her hersenseoflieraffectionatecare and devotion in the house—never more strongly than within the last twelve months. For some years past Mrs. Dickens has been in the liahit of representing to me that it would be better for her to go away and live apart; that her always increasing estrangement made a mental disorder under which she sometimes labors —more, that she felt herself unfit for the life she had to lead as my wife, and that she would be better far away. I have uniformly replied that we must bear our mis fortune, and fight the light out to the end: that the children were the first consideration, and that I feared they must bind us together "in appear ance." At length, within these three weeks, it was sug gested to me by Forster that even for their sakes, it would surely be better to reconstruct and rearrange their unhappy home. 1 employed liirn to treat with Mrs. Dickens, as the friend ot both of U3 for one and twenty years. Mrs. Dickens wished to add on her part, Mark Lemon, and did so. On Saturday last Lemon wrote to Forster that Mrs. Dickens "gratefully and thankfully accepted" the terms I proposed to her. Of the pecuniary part of them, I will only say that 1 believe they are as generous as if Mrs. Ilick ens were a lady of distinction and I a man of for tune. The remaining parts of them are easily- de scribed—my eldest boy to live with Mrs. Dickens and take care of her; my eldest girl to keep mv house; both my girls, and ail my children hut the eldest son, to live with me, in the continued com panionship of their aunt Oeorgine, for whom they liave all the temlerest affection that I have ever seen anion" young people, and who has a higher claim (as I have often declared for many years) upon ray affection, respect and gratitude thaii any body in this world. I hope that no one who may become acouainted with what I write here, can possibly be so cruel ! and unjust, as to put any misconstruction on our : separation, so ar. My elder children all under- : stand it perfectly, and all accept it aa inevitable.- • There is not a shadow of doubt or concealment I among us—my eldest son and 1 are one as to it ! all. Two wicked persons who should have spoken very differently of me, in consideration of earned respect and gratitude, have (as I am told, and in deed to my personal knowledge) coupled with this separation the name of a young lady for whom I have a great attachment and regard. I will not repeat her name—l honor it too much. Upon inv soul and honor, there is not ou this earth a more virtuous and spotless creature than that young lady. I know her to be innocent and pure, and as good as my own dear daughters. Further, lam quite sure that Mrs. Dickons, having received this assurance from ine, must now believe it, in the respect 1 know her to have for me, and in the perfect confidence 1 know her in her better moments to repose in my truthfulness. On this head, again, there is hot a shadow of doubt or concealment between my children and me. All is open and plain among us, as though we were brothers and sisters. They are perfectly certain that I would not deceive tiiein, and the confidence among us is without a fear. C. I). May 29, 1858. It haying been stated to us that in reference to the differences which have resulted in the separa tion of Mr. and Mrs. Chas.

[Here follow the signatures of Mrs. Hogarth and her youngest daughter.] 1). J. A. THE ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH. ARRIVAL OF THE STEAM FRIGATE NIAGARA. [Front the New York Herald of yesterday.] The Niagara wa9 signalized off Sandv Hook as early as nine o'clock yesterday morning, and the goneral expectation was that she would immediate ly come up to the city and land her passengers.— Such, however, proved not to be the case, as Capt. Hudson, under the advice of the city authorities, deemed it best to delay coming up to the city until such time as the proper preparations could be made for her reception in a public manner. The repose of the Sabbath would have been disturbed had the Niagara appeared in New York bay yesterday, and Captain Hudson has a profound regard for the prop er observance of the day, and by no act of his would he have it devoted to other than religious duties.— The frigate, therefore, was detained off Southwest Spit all day, no doubt much to the chagrin of those on board, who in sight of home and near their fam ilies, were unable to regain them after so long an absence. This delay, however, will afford the city authori ties enough time to receive the Niagara in an ap propriate manner. A hundred guns will salute her from the Battery, while the national colors will float from all the forts and shipping in the harbor. The Spanish frigate Barrenguela will salute the Niagara as she passes the Quarantine station. The arrival of the X'iagara was known in the city early in the day, and a number of persons assem bled on the Battery to watch her coming up. Her non-appearance, however, led most of the specta tors to conclude that the report of her arrival was untounded. The ovation to-day will, no doubt, be on an un precedently magnificent scale. THE LATEST FROM TRINITY BAY. A STATEMENT FROM THF. CHIEF ELECTRICIAN AT THIN'ITY BAT. TRINITY BAY, X. F., Aug. 14, 1858. To the Directors of the Atlantic Teleyrajyh Company, Neio York: The cause of our not transmitting and receiving intelligence through, is that the instruments require a great deal of care and adjusting in getting them ready. I am doing this as fast as it is possible.— 5 ou should not look upon the cable as an ordinary short telegraph line that can be worked through directly. The cable has been successfully laid, aud telegraphic signals arc passed througli it at our pleasure, but we have encountered many little diffi culties which it requires time and many experi ments to entirely overcome; but we see no reason to doubt that we shall be able within a few days to surmount all ditlicultics. 1 will send the earliest in timation of the probable time wen the Queen's mes sage may be expected. I)E SANTY. [.VOTE. —In addition to the above, we have seen a private dispatch from a reliable gentleman at St. John's, who is in a position to obtain the earliest and most reliable unofficial intelligence concerning the cable, which states that the instruments at Trinity Bay record, with a good degree of success, the communications from the electricians at the Valentia office; but that, owing to some as yet un explained cause, it has been impossible to commu nicate that or any other intelligence to the operators at A alentia. This is a state of things which often occurs upon the land lines— i. e. , one office can re ceive correctly from a distant operator, and vet be unable to send a word in return—and the difficulty is, sooner or later, found to be in the battery, its connections, or the instruments; and there is no reason to doubt that the present difficulty in work ing the cable will, as soon as the electricians can compare notes, be speedily overcome.] [ From the Sew Orleans Bee, 7/h inst ] THE NEW SOUTHERN MAIL ROUTE TROUBLE AT NEW ORLEANS. Some weeks ago, the neyv mail contract, in virtue of which the Great Eastern mail yvas to be trans ported bv the Mississippi Central and Jackson rail roads from New \ ork to New Orleans in four days and 17 hours, went into operation. Wo cannot say positively whether the mail has ever once arrived within schedule time, but this yve do know, that it has never been distributed at the Post-office in our citv and received by our citizens in less than six days which yvas the usual period of transporta tion under the old schedule. It appears that there are two impediments to the rigorous fulfillment of the contract, both of which, we should imagine, might readily be obviated. The first is a delay of twelve hours occurring at a point called Goodman's Station, on the Mississippi Central road, about twenty miles north of Canton. The mail bags reach Goodman's Station at ti o'clock, P. M., and are there detained until G o'clock the next morning in consequence of the absence of a night train, thus causing a loss of twelve hours. When the mail arrives at New Orleans, Post-oflice hours are over. The Postmaster allirms—no doubt, correctly— that the amount allowed him for contingent "ex penses is insufficient to justify the employment of night clerks; that he cannot require bis employees to labor longer than from sunrise to sunset; and that, consequently, as tho Great Eastern mail is brought to the city by the ears of the Jacksonville railroad after G o'clock in the evening, it must ne cessarily ayvait distribution until the next morning. Thus it happens that our citizens are subjected to a further delay of 12 hours, entailing theloss of an en tire day and night, and precluding them from obtain ing their papers and correspondence till'fullv six days from the time of the departure of the New York mail. Practically, therefore, the sole improvement thus far obtained by the new contract is the regu larity of mail transportation. Nothing whatever is gained in time. The obstacles to which we have alluded, are so far from being insurmountable that they can be easily overcome by the display of a little energy on the part of the Postmaster General As the parties taking the contract have bound themselves to bring the Great Eastern and New Orleans mail in four days and seventeen hours, they should be compell ed to comply with their agreement, or to forfeit the contract. SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. UNION COURSE, LONO ISLAND—TROTTING. —Two trotting matches have been decided during the past week on the Union Course, Long Island, neither of which aflbrded much amusement, nor yvere remark able for the time made. The match on Tuesday was betyveen Fanny Fern and Pilot, the mare win ning with much ease. On Thursday, Honey Young and Rosa Bonheur decided their match in a rain storm that made the track resemble a canal more than a trotting course, the horse winning handily in three straight heats. The following are the summaries: UNION COURSE, L. 1., Aug. 10. —Trotting match, $400; mile heats, best three in five, to wagons. Warren Peabody named br. m. Fanny Fern, 111 D. Kehoe named b. g.

William Stevenson & Sons, at Crosslee, six miles to the west of Paisley, was de stroyed by fire. Crossley Mill was a very large cotton-spinning work of six stories and attics. The number of spindles in tho mill yvas 28,000, and the machinery, exclusive of the building, was yvorth upwards of £20,000. The mill, machinery, and cot ton destroyed are altogether estimated" at about £OO,OOO, hut the proprietors are said to he insured in three different oflices. The catastrophe will throw upwards of 500 persons idle, for whom there is no other employment ir, the district. Indeed, in that respect it may be regarded as a terrible calamity, as it is feared that the mill may not bo rebuilt. AN INDIAN FIGHT. The special Washington correspondent of the New York lh rald furnishes that paper with the follow ing information: Advices from the Dalles, Oregon Territory, July 5, state that news had just reached that point of "a great fight between the Cayuse and Snake Indians, both hostile tribes. The particulars had not been received, but the fact that there is a want of union among the hostile tribes is important, as it must weaken then forces and aid the troops and friendlv Indians in their eflorts to subdue them. In the vi cinity of Fort Colville, on the l'razer river, where the first discoveries of gold yvere made in 1856, the savages arc making hostile demonstrations, and have driven in the settlers just as they yvere engaged in harvesting their crops. As th'is is right on the northern route from St. Paul to the neyv gold dig gings, it is thought that it will be necessary to es tablish a military post there. Miners should not venture by this route in parties of less than one hundred in number, as the hostile tribes in the val ley of the Columbia and Snake rivers have been striving to excite the Flatbeads and Xez Perces to join tbem : and although they were friendly at last advices, there is no telling yvhat the result may be. This intelligence from Colville looks badly. PRICE TWO CENTS RBTAII.IXO POISONS. —The last number of the 3fnl a"<J Surgical Journal gives the following whole some advice to druggists : "Notwithstanding we have repeatedly urged the necessity ot some law compelling apothecaries to be cautious in the sale of poisons (since so many of them are unwilling to take the trouble to be so,) we must again allude to the subject, a new instance of cu.pable carelessness having come to our knowledge.

Why cannot druggists make it a rule to refuse to sell dangerous articles unless the purchaser can produce physician's proscription or some other guarantee that the drug is to be used only for a lawful and proper purpose?" MILITARY TKIP TO EUROPE.— It has been announced that the Seventy-First regiment, Col. Vosburgli, in tend making a trip to Europe some time during the coming fall. The report, however, is premature; for although the members of the regiment have dis cussed the propriety of paying a visit to the French capital, the matter has not been definitely settled. It is now reported that a committee, consisting of Lieut. McOormick, Col. Hepburn and private Coul ter, of the City Grenadiers, company 11, Second regiment, departed in the steamer last week for Eu rope, to make arrangements for the visit of that, corps to Scotland, from which country most of the members hail. It is said the money is subscribed, and that the committee's report will decide the matter. A trip to Europe is nut such a formidable matter after all, and no doubt hut that, before long, some of our city companies will undertake it. Tl would add immensely to the e< lat of the corps that would perform the feat. A company or regiment of our New York uniformed militia in London or Paris would be one of the events of the age, and would create a great excitement. Last year the members of the Columbian Engine Company, No. 14, seriously determined to visit the Old World du ring the present summer. The members even went so far as to hire instructors in French, hut the re vulsion of last fall left the "Columbians" so bereft of cash that the European trip had to be abandoned for a time. It may take place, however, within a year or two. — N. 'Y. Herald. BEET ROOT SUGAR. —The increase in France of the production of beet-root sugar is such as to he likely quite to dispense with the necessity of reviv ing the slave-trade for the sake of furnishing the French sugar colonies with labor adequate to the production of the sugar needed in France. The amount produced in 1851 was C 4,000,000 kilogram mes; in 1854, 77,000,000; in 1857, 85,000,000- and this year it will not be less than 100,000,000. A kilogramme, it will be recollected, is about two and a fifth of our pounds. The high price of grain has checked the beet cultivation for three or four years past, but at present prices many new adventurers will go into it. In fact, the home-made is gaining so fast on the colonial production of sugar that the Chamber of Commerce of Nantes calls loudly for a protective duty in favor of the colonies, "whose sugar it is said ought to be encouraged on account of the large quantity of shipping employed in its transportation. THE REPORTED LOSS OF THE BARK ELIZA.— The account published in this paper on Thursday, telegraphed from Boston, of the loss of the bark Eliza, of New York, Capt. L. S. l'ike, based on the statements of Charles 11. Rowden (the reputed se cond mate of the vessel) and others, is entirely without foundation. The Eliza was taken to Ham burg about a year since by Capt. l'ike, there sold, and at last dates was at Singapore. Capt. I', has since commanded another vessel which he also sold at Hamburg, and was afterward first officer of the steamship Northern Light, and returned from Bremen in her on the 2Cth ult., since which he has remained in this city. We have these particulars from Capt. l'ike himself, who also states that the man Rowden was his second mate in the Eliza when she left this port about two years ago for Norfolk, thence to the West Indies, and on her re turn in X(iv., 1850, Rowden left the vessel. In stead of a wreck, it may turnout to boa case of desertion, or something worse, and ought to be in vestigated.—.Vine York Journal of Commerce. FROM HAVANA. —The United States Mail steam ship Philadelphia, Gustavus Harrison commanding* left New-Orleans Aug. 5, arrived at Key West on the morning of the Bth, and sailed same day for Havana, which port she left on the afternoon of the 9th for New York, arriving yesterday afternoon. The Philadelphia did not enter the harbor of Havana, but landed her passengers from outside the More Castle. The Philadelphia brings lis passengers and §212,000 in silver specie. The officers and crew of the American brig Nancy had been relascd from prison, and the vessel it was said would be cleared honent.

Suffice it to say, the attempt was highly successful, although the speed was necessarily somewhat reduced; t'.is, however, caused no inconvenience to the passengers,who had, thereby*, abundant opportunity of observing the magnificent scenery—too grantl beyond measure for an attempted description—and were only delighted to be able to tarry a little longer in this unprece dented and unrivaled enjoyment. The train was an unusually large one, there being seven full ears in it.— Phil. Penn. FROM PORT An PRINCE. —By the arrival of the schooner Fred. Howell, from Port au Prince, yyv have papers to July 24. The Corps Lcjhlatif had adopted three new tariff laws, modifying the impor tation duties, exportation duties, wharfage rates, anchorage and port dues, Ac. The Emperor bad approved the layvs, but the tenor is not given ill the papers. The schooner Aglae, which was stolen by the mate from the roads of Coteaux, on the 27th of June, had been forced to put into Carthagena by stress of weather. The mate's story was, that while lying at Coteaux, the captain yvas taken sick on shore, and ordered him to make sail for Aux Caves, where the vessel belonged; but that having been driven to sea, after vainly trying to reach Jamaica, he had been obliged to go to Carthagena. No steps had been taken to recover the vessel.— Sew Yak Herald. TOBACCO. —A French paper, the Genie Industrial, says it cannot account for the enormous iucreasc in the consumption of tobacco in France. It says that while in 1890 the value of tobacco consumed yvas $13,000,000, iu 1340 it had increased to $19,000,000, in 1851 to $24,000,000, and in 18.57 to nearly $35, 000,000. Considering the extraordinary increase in luxury and expenditures which have gathered and advanced in France of late years, it is thought probable that perhaps between forty and fifty mil lion dollars' worth would now be the annual esti mate. The increase of consumption in Great Brit ain, with proper allowance for smuggling, appears to have been actually much greater than in Frame, while the same is true of the United States and Germany. THE BLOCNT-ZOUAVE AFFAIR.— We are induced to allude to this subject again, simpl v from a desire to do an act of justice to a young lady. We are a sured, and by those who have had every opportune tv for correct information, that the confession of the marriage was made under the force of improper inlluence, and that under different circumstance she did not hesitate to declare it utterly untrue, and to express her contempt for the man who was pursuing her.— Savannah Republican.
