M ARTISSUUKO, Sunday, duly 7.—Two deserters escaped yesterday from General Johnston's com mand, which has been moved forward to within e yen miles of this point from Hunker's Hill. The enemy's camp nt. Big Springs, three miles from it re, Consists only of Colonel Stuart's cavalry re giment. It is this regiment which, fr nn its supe i lor knowledge of the tonography of the country, keeps our quarters in constant alarm, and captures our pickets. Those deserters were members of the Berkeley County Border Guards, and estimate General Johnston's force nt 15,000, with twenty-two cannon, including eight six pounders, four twelve pounders and one ten-inch howitzer. Some men sent out on Friday in consequence of a report that a number of rebels killed at Haines vi 11 - were utiburied, have returned, and report that a number of tlose men, not less than seven and probably as high as ten, have been buiied by the farmers living in that neighborhood. Reports of others found and buried, making a total of twentv-seven, are in circulation—but this is doubt ful. Though the ollicers of Gen. Patterson's staff* estimate the loss of the enemy at sixty in killed anil wounded and missing in that action, I have no suffi cient evidence to show that it exceeded uiy former estimate of twenty-five. The deserters say fhat they knew of large num bers of others who desire to leave the Confederate service, both in their own company and others. One of them, a very intelligent man, declares that a soldier who was badly wounded in the affair at Gainesville declared to his officer that he had not fired his gun during the engagement. John Rutberfrl, color hearer in Company I), in Colonel Allan's Virginia 2d Infantry, was arrested h re this morning by Captain McMullin, on the charge of being a spy. Second Lieutenant Beam and private Marion, of McMuliin's Rangers, searched his house and found his sash, parade and fatigue cap, two plumes, a flint-lock musket, and a splendid silver-mounted double barreled fowling piece. He has a son in the Confederate army. A man named Schwartz was arrested yesterday and is still held in custody. The allegation against hi in U that he is a very violent secessionist, and thmi. he has, as coal agent of the Southern Confed eracy, been, without any color of right, selling tbe coal of the Ballimore and Ohio Railroad at this point to private individuals. Great enthusiasm was excited anioDg the troops composing this column on hearing the news of Geneial McClellan's reported success at Buckhan non and Laurel Hill over Wise's column. (Jon tra>ts are violently nude with our own dilatory action in every group of men and soldiers For ward is the only word now issuing from men and subordinate officers. I have heard of no more outrages upon private property. Col. Patterson's Pennsylvania Volunteers, the 2d New Hampshire, Ist Pennsylvania and 15th New York regiments are at Willi&msport, advancing to reinfo: c us. Col. Stone was at Harper's Ferry yesterday with a part of his command. One of the batteries con nect! d with his column is also on its way hither. These additions to our force here will give us twenty-one regiments of volunteers, and 12,000 men. inclusive of leguiar cavalry and artillery and detached corps—a total available force upon our front, of not over 10,000 men. Intimations from headquarters say that the column in its full strength will be twenty thousand available men for batih*. There will have to be at least four th uj| sand at Hagerstnwn, Wiiliamsport and here, as guards to the camp and stents. Its total strength is, then, to be twenty-four thousand. You may look lor a forward movement from here iumv next despatches. A hen Gen. Johnston discovers these heavy rein f"icements he will retreat beyond question to Winchester. f designate that as tbe point of the first great battle, as I hare ever done since coming upon this Hue. RATER. Increase of foafi-ih mtc Forces— Had Time for Federal Pickets. SUNDAY, G o'clock, P. M—l learn from head quarters that positive information has been re ceived that. Johnston has been reinforced from Ma nassas Junction. They brought an additional piece of cannon with them. Its calibre is not known. The number of regiments constituting the reinforcement was five. '1 he 15th regiment captured three men and five horses at or near the Winchester turnpike. This was very gratifying to a regiment which has lost so many of its men. Tbe 16th lost two of its pick ets whilst in sea* ch of water this morning. This makes a loss of four men within two days by their venturing away from their posts contrary to order. Ihe only wonder is that more are not taken, as j their immediate o/licers do not control them in this I particular. FROM FORTRESS AIOVIIOE. f Corre.fjtondence of the Associated Press*] FORTH ESS MONROE, July 8. Commodore Fetid er grast has gone Southward with the Roanoke. The Cumberland and the gun-boat Day light sail to-mor rVw - t*' £ W R1 probably become the fi*p fjuwKer Guy wa*S W\!)jfY6 n this morning, to pa ticipate in a contemplated at tack on Sewell's Point. Including the frigates and gun boats, there was this morning in Hampton Roads a force of two hundred guns and tlir<*e thousand five hundred men. It was hoped that a demonstration would be made against some of the adjacent batteries, but nothing ol the kind took place. Colonel Duryea is Acting Brigadier-General. A movtiiicnt of his regiment to Fox Hill, about five miles distant, was contemplated, butha6 beeu aban doned. Last night two men deserted from the Confed erates. They belonged to the gun boat Frnzer, which guards James river from Richmond to the vicinity i f Newport-News. Whilst she was at an chor last night the men escaped with her vawl and Jong-boat, and were this morning picked up by the Monticello. A small boat pursued them from the shore, but withdrew on the appearance of the Mon ticello. The men belong—one to NewYotk,and the other to Baltimore. They report that they were impressed into the Confederate service, and say that there are only about 2,000 ( ! ) troops in Richmond at this time, and about the same number posted below n the James river. FROM WESTER\ VIRGINIA. Movements of Gen. McClellnn's Column. liucKHANM N, July 9—lt is stated that Colonel Tvler succeeded iu throwing one company into Glenviilr? la.-t night, with provisions for the nine companies of the 17th and 19th Ohio regiments, who were represented by a previous des patch as being besieged there by a superior force of Confederates. He was only waiting the arrival of the 10th regiment, which left here last night for that point, to begin the attack on Colonel Wise's conm and. General McCleilan left Middle Ford Bridge early this morning, with the evidrnt design of reaching a point twenty two miles east of here, where the Si cessiciiists are represented as in large numbers, and strongly entrenched. FROM WASHINGTON. WASHINGTON, July 9—P. M —Within the last twenty-four honrs the 4th and s'h Maine regiments and the 29th New York regiment have passed into V irgicia. The steamer Pocahontas has actively cruis ing f"r the past week in the neighborhood of Aquia Creek and Mat hiss' Point. At the former place u Saturday she approached to within about one thousand yards of the secession steamer Geo. Page, which lay far up the cretk, and fired thirteen shell into her, taking her smoke-stack as the target. — Those on board were in great commotion, showing that the shot from the Pocahontas were not inef fectual. While engaged in this duty, the Poca hontas was fired at from the upper secession bat? tery, but sustained no damage. The 33d New York regiment, from Ontario county, arrived here this evening. The disaffected soldiers of the Ist German New Yoik Rifle regiment, who yesterday were placed in jil lor refusing the arms allotted to tbeiii by the Government, have repented of their folly, and are now willing to render obedience. The rebelling Garibaldiaos are still under ar rest. The bill introduced bv Mr. Stevens from the c mmittee on \\ avs and Means, 10-day, proposes a loan of $250,000,000. William B. Rochester, of Auburn, and Henry Porter Andrews, of New York, have been appoin ted additional paymasters in the army. From Alexandria, ALEXANDRIA, July 9.—The first passenger train on the Or ange and Alexandria Railroad made a trip to Cameron's Run this morning with Company A of the Z 'uavis, and Company 1 of the Michigan ]sl regiment. Cameron's Run is about four miles nut and is the farthest point on the road to which our pickets at present extend. Advaatt of Troops to Cumberland. HARRISBCKO, July B.— At the request of Gen. Scott, the two regiments of Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteers under Colonel Charles" J. Btddle and Colonel Simmons, marched yesterday from Bedford to Cumberland, Maryland, w here they are to join a portion of General McClellan's army. Tornadoes in tlir Northwest. CHICAGO, July B —A violent tornado, accompa nied by rain, passed over Freeport, in this State, this afternoon, doing much damage.- The freight h< use of the Illinois Central road was unrooted, the machine sbop of the Racine and Mississippi road demolished, the bridges over the Preatonica and at Yellow Creek, near the citv, were blown down. It also unroofed several at Rockford. A thunder storm prevailed here all the afternooD, preventing the working of the telegraph wires. We are, therefore, unable to obtain further parti culars. USHKOSH, Wis., July B. —A destructive tornado swept over this city at 2 o'clock this morning, un rooting houses in every direction, blowing down trees, doing immense damage to the large flouring mills of Green & Powers, unrooted and demolished the store of Bigger Hill, etc. The steamer Shaw an 'W, at her dock, was made a complete wreck. The steamer Berlin City has her smoke stacks and upper works carried awav and otherwise damaged. Houses in all parts of the city were lifted up and carried several feet, and even in some cases entirely demolished The wind was accompanied by a violent hail storm. The lightning was terrific, striking in seve ral places. No loss of lile yet reported. Fatal Accident—Two Members of tlie Rhode Islnud I.lirht Battery Killed by the Explo sion of Cartridges. WASHINGTON, July 9 —As the right section of the Second Rhode Island Light Battery was drilling on the ground near the encampment of the Mozart regiment of New York, early this morning, the cartridges in the limber chest of the second piece exploded, killing Corporal N. T. Morse, Jr., and private William E. Brown, seriously wounding private E R. Freeman, and slightly wounding private Richard Tbornley, and Edwin E. Weeks. The remains of the dead will be sent to Provi dence this alternoon. The cause of the ignition of the powder is unknown. A report prevails that it was in consequence of the explosion of a shell, but this is disproved by an examination made by sev eral gentlemen acquainted with pyrotechnics, no fragments being found. Their theory is that the explosion was caused bv the agency of friction matchea either thrown into the limber chest by ■ome enemy, or dropped into or new it through carelessness. Arrival of tho North Britain, FURTHER FROM EUROPE. j QUEBEC, July 9.— The steamer North Biiton, via | Father Point, has arrived, with Liverpool advices j of the 28th u t. I Political news is unimportant. The North Briton tias 2SG passengers and $250,- 000 in specie. The French Senate has passed a bill establishing i postal service with America. Napoleon's recognition of Italy is withheld for I approval. Tbe Pope's health is worse. COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE.

I.ON DON, Friday, June 28.—Consols closed at 89%. Bul lion in the Bank has increased £49,000. | Further from California—By Pony Express, j FORT KEARNEY, July 7.—A storm, last night, ' prevented the transmission of the entire California despatch by the Pony Express. The following is th*? conclusion: SAN FRANCISCO, June 25. —1t is represented that Senators Baker. Latham and McDougal will urge the acceptance of Templetoo's regiment, for the purpose of guarding the overland mail route. A destructive fire occurred at Cottonwood, Syck egao county, on Thursday, consuming tbe entire business portion of the town. The loss is about $40,000. The grain harvest has commenced in all parts of the State, and the crop was never liner. There is probably an eighth more land under cultivation this year than ever before, and the proportion of wheat over other crops is also greater. The Los Angelos Star, of the 22d of Juno, con tains the following items from the southern portion of the State ar.d the adjacent territories: Jose Mattco Moreno, tbe present acting Gov ernor of Lower California, was arrested at San Diego on tbe 19th of June, by the United States Deputy Marshal, on a charge of" violating the neu trality law of the United States during the late difficulties in California between Don Feiiciano and Parsea, and Don Juan Mendoza. By information obtained from the Express rider from the Colorado, it is learned that that portion of the mail stock used on the line on the other side of El Paso, is on the road to Los Angelos, and may he expected here in five or six days. The Express tnan left Fort Yuma on the 16th, at which time the stock had arrived on the other side. McNeese and Giddings' party had been discovered murdered, and the bodies horribly mangled. Mr. Giddings was a brother of the mail contractor. By the breaking up of the post at Tejoxi, in addi tion to other Government property, we have also the herds of camels now here, which have been at Tejon for some years. On Wednesday morning, Company B, First Dra goons, from Fort Tt-jon, with the hand of the regi j menr, under command of Capt. Davidson, had ar rived in Los Angelos. They marched into camp at once, making three eompaniesencuinDed here. The news from the Sandwich Islands is received up to May 20th—ten days later—but it is quite un important. Additional l>y (lie Gnat Eastern. QUEBEC, July 8. —The Great Eastern is command ed by Captain Kennedy, late of the Etna. The number of her officers has been reduced to one-halt. She was navigated across without the slightest difficulty, and lies at anchor opposite this city.— She was exactly eight days out from the time the Liverpool pilot left her till the Canadian pilot boarded her, during which she had only thirty hours of clear weather. She made Cipe Race in six days from Liverpool, but the weather was too thick to communicate with that point. She nearly ran into the Arabia in a fog, on the 2d, and would have done so had she carried a bowsprit. The same day she saw several icebergs. There were two births on board during the pissage, by the wives of the soldiers, several of whom were found concealed on board. The weather was moderate and the sea smooth throughout the passage. The ship will not be ready for inspection for a week, and will probably remain here for a month. Indian Firht in Minnesota. CHICAGO, July B —The St. Paul Pioneer of the 2d instant, gives the particulars fa fight between a party of Cbippewas and Sioux, on the 10th of June. It appears that the Sioux arrived at St. Joseph, on the Pembina river, for the purpose of returning some stolen horses, when they were fired on by a party of Cbippewas encamped in the vici nity. The Sioux iminediatelv returned the fire. Six of the Cbippewas, three Sioux and two Assiui boines were killed. The Sioux finally escaped, leaving behind them forty horses. Although the half-breeds at St. Joseph retrained from taking part in the fight, thev are apprehensive of an at tack from a body of Sioux now encamped at Devil's Lake. Steamer Burnt. OMAHA, July J). —The steamer Chippewa, laden with Government freight and stores for the Ameri can Fur Company, was destroyed by fire on the 23d 'of June, 150 miles above Yellow Stone River. The passengers and crew escaped to the shore. The powder on board exploded soon after, entirely de stroying the boat. Election of Virginia I'. S. Scnntars. WHEELING, July 9 —Air. Carlife was elee'ed to the Unit d States Senate for the long term, and W. T. Wilby, of Alrnongahela for, the-short term. ne" neW ta;e government is now tully under CURIOUS PROCESS IN BOOKBINDING. —An interesting process in ornamental bookbinding has been recent ly patented by Mr Charles Tuckett, Jun., son of. Mr Tuckett, bookbinder to her Maiesty, and like wise to the British Museum. This is a method by which various colored designs are produced on the sides and backs of books, according to taste and pattern, bv mea-.s of numerous acids, alkalies, salts, mineral and neutral, and their compounds, acting in such a manner as to cause a permanent change of color on the foundation leather. That is to say, the volumes being first bound in leather of a uni form color, as red, olive, blue or green, any other color or colors may be superadded at will by the new process, and with little or no fear of time ope rating any change in them. Some beautiful speci mens of bookbinding of this kind have been exhibit ed by Mr. Tuckett at the Society of Arts, and we have seen many others in his own possession, which viewed eithe r mechanically or artistically, convince us that the discovery is one of rare merit. The mo rocco bindings, we must say, are far superior to those in calf, the changes of color in the former be ing of a more decided hue than in the calf, affording another evidence, if such were needed, of the supe riority of morocco to calf under all ci; camstances of bookbinding. Connoisseurs are. of course, aware of many curious and valuable examples of book binding in various colors, dati g hack : far as the sixteenth century, which were produced eiiher by painting the added colors with oil, or by inlaying portions of leather of the various required hues. But both of these methods are objectionable; the on* from the danger and almost certainty of the added colors chipping off in process of use, and the other from the various inlaid pieces becoming loose at the points of juncture. London Athenceum, TASTE IN TUNlS. —Obesity is considered quite in dir-pensable to beauty among the Mohammedans— so much so that the young woman whose features may approximate the most to the ideal type, and vet should fail in this important sine qua non, would find it very difficult indeed to secure a hus band. The Israelites ol Tuuis have adopted in great part the manners of the Musselmans; and on the subject of fatness especially they appear to be even more tractable. When a young Jewess is about to be married it is customary to fatten her during the forty days which, from the time of the engagement, must always precede the great day of the nuptials. She is confined in a dark cool chamber, never allowed to go out of it, compelled to drink a great deal, and to sleep as much as pos sible; but her mother awakes her invariably at midnight, that she tuav partake of the most fat tening substances, and is thus stuffed to repletion, in a manner somewhat like that employed on a fowl when intended for the market. If, at the close of the forty days, her b trothed finds her still jfune, the parents continue the sameregiinen for fifteen days more, even at the risk of killing her. The Arabs affirm that plumpness acquired in this way always remains. All women there wear large gold or silver rings on their limbs; if the fiancee is to espouse a widower or one divorced, the rings which belong to the first wife are banded over to her, and then the dietetics necessary to enable her to acquire the capacity of the bracelets is resorted to assiduously. The operation is not always the most facile; for it often happens that a meagre wo man succeeds another of a totally different consti tution. M. Ducaut, a French servant, asserts that certain ladies, in order to gaiu that stout ness so much desired, go so far as to eat dogs —said to be an infallible means to attain it; while others live almost exclusively on sesame, the oil plant. Ac., sleep twenty-three hours out of the twenty-tour, and by dint of care and especially by I indolence, they finally triumph over the most re ! bellious nature.

Cuors IN MISSOURI. —The farmers in this region are now nearly through with the wheat harvest, which has been the most abundant yield known loi vears in Missouri. There was a larger breadth of land than usual sown in wheat in this State.— The same remarks will apply to Illinois. The harvests of the other grain crops, and of the hay crop, were never better. The farmers have a good chat,ce to give their corn a thorough cultivation, end the fields give the same promise ol abundance that the wheat fields have realized. The hemp and tobat co crops are flourishing; the root and all the vegetable crops are equally so. while fruit trees of every kind are beariag profusely. Very few of the years bring such uuiversal plenty "as the preseDt. EXCESS OF WOMEN IN ENGLAND.—The excess of the fair sex in Eng'and amounts to the alarmingly large total of 544,021; but this disproportion be tween the sexes is not universal, the rougher sec tion of humanity being in a majority in Derby shire, Durham, Essex, Herefordshire, Kent, Hamp shire, Staffordshire and Westmoreland. In Mid dlesex there are 165,389, and in Lancashire 86,100 more women than men. and the agricultural coun ties also reflect the continuous drain of emigration upon their adult male population. THE CAPE COD CANAL.—The Committee on the Cape Cod Canal, alter examining several routes, conclude to adopt the one west of Sagamore Hill in West Sandwich, running near IlerriDg Pond, Indian Village, thereby avoiding the deep, muddy marshes. The deepest cut through the route is City four feet seven inches. The canal will be about 7J4 mites long. The width will be 150 feet, all atoned. TUB WOOL TRADE IN AI ICHIGAN.—At Gall Prai rie, Kalamazoo coun'y, Mr. Thomas Hubbard, of Boston, has been buying lor the Middlesex Com pany of Lowell. He has taken 45,000 lbs , all verv tine and in good condition, at an average of 29 ceDts. The total amount marketed at Kalamazoo last year, was 186,054 lbs —so that but about one tentb of the clip in the vicinity has been brought to market as yet. Tbeatate of the Pope'i health la more precarious, I end much uneasiness ii manifested by the car dinal! on that aooonnc. [Special Correspondence of the Daily Exchange ) WASHINGTON, July 9, 1861. I Humor is current here that some of the recent arrests in Maryland have been made at the instance of Gov. Hicks. The case of Mr. Tiljrhinan, notv at Fort Mcllenrv, is mentioned as one, in which the wishes of Gov. H. furnish the whole ground for de tention. Ido not vouch for the truth of the re port, but it comes from good authority, and i 3 cor roborated by facts within the knowledge of well informed parties here in reference to the under standing which exists between Gov. H. and tbe Ad ministration. It is also said that every regiment in the army is expected to goat least five times over the Northern Central Railroad, in which the Secretary of War has so large an interest. This sounds like a jest, but the accounts of the movements of troops within the month past seem to be very much in accord ance with it. (H it WASHINGTON LETTER. WASHINGTON, July 9, IS6I. A flag of truce is now in the city from Genera! Beauregard. It seeks an exchange of prisoners and protests against cruel out!ages perpetrated by Federal soldiers upon private and unarmed citizens of Virginia. Genera! McDowell, ol the Federal forces, accompanies the flag and will leave with it to-night or to-morrow for Falls Church. Gen McDowell was with Gen. Scott two hours last night. He recommends that no attack be made with less than 50,000 men, and that they be divided into three columns. Scott believes that the entire success of the war depends on the first important engagement, and while a forward movement is going on in the rear guard of the army the re serve corps and sappers and miners are engaged in erecting earthworks in the immediate neighbor hood of the citv. These fortifications now extend from Alexandria to Georgetown. There is every reason to believe that Gen. McDowell has received his orders to march with the main body of his col umn (39,000) for Manassas; so that we may expect to hear nt a grand pitched battle pr< bably on Mon day next. Owing to reinforcements sent to Gen. Johnston, the real strength of Beauregard's army at the Junction is not known. There is yet no cessation in the rdvance of the troops from this cby. One Massachusetts regiment left for Alexandria this morning at six o'ciocK, and two others (New York) are under marching orders, and expected to leave to-day also. Ki> ce last Monday (July Ist) there have passed into Virginia 34 200 troops, with all their baggage, equipments and entrenching tools. Seventy-one members of the 25th regiment New York volunteers were sent to jail yesterday for revolting. They were ordered to repair to the United States arsenal, and there exchange their Eotield rifles for the ordinary musket. The mem bers above stated relused to comply with the order, when the colonel of the regiment, finding the dis content becomitig general, ordered their arrest. '1 he Federalists at and near Falls Church are con stantiv stealing horses, negroes, poul ry, and what ever else they can get their hands upon. "It's in the blood and must come out." One of the Rhode Gland soldiers yesterday drew his revolver and deliberately kiiled a fioe uorse be longing to Messrs. Kirkland & Dowling, valued at $350. The soldiers afterwards threatened to shoot the driver if he uttered a word. Five more of the Zouaves have been arrested for participating in the fir-' riot on Saturday last. The time of many of the D. C. volunteers expires this week. 1 doubt whether a single regiment can be re-enlisted for three years. They don't like to livo rn what they term "salt hoss" (bacon). At the expiration of the time of the National Guards regiment, Col. Lyle, now in your city, which will be in two weeks, a Zouave corps will be organized among those who intend to stay for three years. The major portion of the Guards will, however, return to their homes in Philadel phia. The measles are raging with violence in the U. S. Government, hospital in this city. This fact is studiously kept quiet bv the officials. All the clerks in every department have been placed under an injuncti >n to give no information on anv subject pertaining to the army and navy, their movements, numbers and supplies, without permis sion of the chief clerk of the head of the bureau. Hereafter all applicants for information will be excluded from the departments, excepting mem bers of Congress or other officials. Mr. Breckinridge, who, by the customs and cour tesies of the Senate, is a member of the Committee on Military Affairs, has had his name stricken from the list of members of that committee by the pres ent Republican monopoly. Expected Advance—Revolt of the (iaiibahli Guards. JULY 9, P. M. The general expectation among military circles here is that at the close of the present week a simul taneous movement will be made on Wise in Western Virginia, upon Johnston and upon Beauregard.— Immense preparations have been made for opera tions against the latter, and Washington and the whole line of railroad from Baltimore h -re are crowded with trains containing munitions of war, horses, cattle, Ac. A portion of the Garibaldi regiment revolted to day, and forced its way across the bridge into Washington, where, after they had baited, thev were surrounded by United States regulars, to whom they surrendered.

THE BRITISH TROOPS FOR CANADA, LORD PALMEILSTON'S DEFENCE OF THE REINFORCEMENT. In the House of Commons, on Die 24th of June, Sir J. Ferguson called attention to the recent aug mentation of the military forces in Canada. He expressed a hope that the present unhappy disputes in the United States had nothing to do with in fluencing the decision of the government in this respect. The House of Commons had wisely deci ded not to enter into any discussion on the state of affairs in America; but the course adopted by the government would have the effect of putting an end to that feeling of neutrality which such a decision had created. The manner in which the troops had been, or were about to be, despatched was likely to cause increased importance to be at tached to such a step. The troops were to be sent off in hot haste, iu the largest and fastest vessel at the disposal of the government, and not in the or dinarv un*de, by transports or vessels of war. It would be known all over Europe that the govern ment of this country had thought it necessary to send out troops by the Great Eastern, and the movement would appear to posess more of the character of an expedition than an ordinary relief of troops. A step so decided and so conspicuous ought not to be taken unless there was some great object to be obtained, or some great danger to be guarded against in Canada. (Hear,hear.) It was not bv force of arms, still less by s< small a force as this, that we could expect to retain the loyalty of that country. The ties of kindred, the conscious ness ofself government, the public growth of free institutions of this country transplanted to a kindly soil—all these gave assurances of the loyalty of Canada. (Hear, hear.) He could not believe there could be any expectation on the part of the govern ment of an attack from the United States upon Canada. It might be that rash partisans might make an impression upon America against Canada, but surely there were militia in Canada sufficient for the present, at least, to render efficient service. Lord Palmerston, in reply, said: 1 concur in all those assertions. Undoubtedly we have no reason to suppose that the Northern States of America would commit such an act of folly as to add anoth er contest to that in which they are at present en gaged. Her Majesty's government have professed, in the most solemn manner, their determination to abstain from taking any part in the contest now going on between the Northern and Southern States. We rely on the people of Canada, on the loyalty of all the*races there—a loyalty manifested in the mst striking manner during the visit of the Prince of Wales—and, therefore, none of these are the occasions for sending out a large lorce. But it is the ordinary practice of all governments, in all parts of the world, when war breaks out, to strengthen in some degree the military force in that pai t'of the territory which is proximate and near. This is a laudable precaution, the neglect ol which would be blaweable on our parts, and that we have not gone beyond that ordinary degree of precaution is proved by the manner in which the honorable and gallant officer designated this force as A small one. For a military man to talk of three thousand men as being a large force, as be did in another part of his speech, was an exaggeration which I should not have expected from an officer of the honorable and gallant member's experience'. I have heard on former occasions complaints made that troops are sent out in insufficient transports, anil that they have been detained long on the pas sage, and that therefore the government were blameahle. But the complaint of the honorable and gallant member is, that we are sending them out in one of the fastest vessels, and with perfect comfort, and without any of the inconveniences that are the result of going in small and numerous vessels, and, therefore, we have abridged the time of passage as much as we possibly could, to enable them to arrive at their destination with the least possible inconvenience. I really should have thought, that a military officer would have given us credit instead of censure under such circumstances. 1 have only to say that what we have done indi cates no intention of our taking any part whatever in the war between those whom I may call our re latives in the United States. We have no suspicion whatever of the undoubted and true loyalty ot her Maj sty's subjects in the North American provinces. We send out the troops merely for this precaution ary movement in a country bordering on the dis turbances of a neighboring one; and we trust that when they get there they will manifest that loyalty for which the gallant and honorable member gives them credit.

PASSAGE OF MORE FEDERAL TROOPS.—During last Monday night a batterv*of light artillery belong ing to the Ninth New York regiment, consisting of six field pieces, passed through from Washington, destined lor General Patterson's command at Mar tinshurg. A detachment oF regulars passed through yester day morning to Washington. They came byway of Philadelphia, and are classified as follows: Company A, First Cavalry—Lieutenants McCor mick and Wilson. Company E, First Cavalry—Captain A. V. Col burn, Lieutenant L'Hommedi". Company K, of Second Dragoons, the whole mustering 260 men, uuder the command of Captain F. C. Armstrong. These troops are from Fort Leavenworth, Kan sas, are ail in good health, and left that post on the 3d instant. They are accompanied by their horses, numbering 264. Company G, of the First Artillery, regular army, under the command of Captain Seymour, also pass ed through. This command was originally from Fort .Sumter. The three companies of cavalry occupied twenty three cars, fourteen of which were tilled with horses, four with baggage and live by the officers and men. The rernaiuder, consisting of 141 men, were a part of General Harney's command. The Thirty-third New York regiment, under command of Colonel R. F. Taylor, arrived, came over the Northern Central Railway yesterday morning, and immediately proceeded to the Wash ington depot, but were detained some time in con sequence of some misunderstanding in the arrange ments ordered for their transportation. The budy numbered 829 men. rank and tile. AN ARMED EXPEDITION SENT DOWN THE RAY.— Provost Marshal Kenley yesterdav morning or dered the seizure of the steamer Chester, Captain Young, (just as she was firing up for her usual trip to Chestertown,) for the purpose of sending an armed expedition down the Chesapeake Bay to cap ture a schooner that was supposed to be lying near Fait haven. The reasons for this movement are given as follows : Information had been received I I>v the Provost Marshal to the effect that Mr. ; Richard Thomas, who w# arrested on Monday last, | which had been left off the mouth of the Potomac-, 1 in charge of a crew, who awaited the return of Mr. Thomas to Baltimore. Mr. Thomas is said to hold a Colonefs commission in the Confederate army, and is alleged to have bpen th hero of the St. Nicholas adventure. The Chester was run down to the Fort, where an armament of two twenty-four pounders, an artillery company, and a posse of vice policeman, were placed on board. About 7 o'clock she steamed down the bay. Orders were given to stop any steamers that might have started from Baltimore at an earlier hour, so as to pre clude the possibility of the object of the expedi tion being made known. The result of the ex pedition is not yet known. We learn that the prisoner alluded to as Mr. Thomas holds a commission in the Confederate army under the title of Colonel Ztrvona He is retained in the guard-house, and is not held as a prisoner of war, but for piracy and treason. We presume that bis case will be dealt with care fully, inasmuch as any failure to recognize his military character, in his trial or punishment, would of course be followed by retaliation on the part of the Confederate government. SIEZURE OF STEAMERS. —Bv order of Gen Banks, the steamers Mary Washington and George W. Weeins, both owned and commanded by the Weetns Brothers, were yesterday morning t-tken possession of. These vessels have be*-n plying between Balti more and the ports of the Patuxent River, aud they were said to be seized in consequence of the suspi cion that a number of persons who are supposed to have subsequently entered Virginia and joined the Confederate army, ha 1 taken passage on them at various times The United States government au thoritiee have heretofore endeavored to charter these boats, but the proprietors were unwilling to e nter iuto an arrangement with them. A BRAVE DEPUTY MARSHAL.—Another daring feat was yesterday put into execution by one of Marshal Bonitant's deputies. As the individual was passing the residence of Mr. Kloman, No 34 North Charles street, he espied a son of Mr. Klo man, about seven years of age, with a Confederate States flag (made of paper.) The boy was sitting on a table, with his sister, ten years old, at a back window. The Deputy Marshal went into the hou£, took the fl-ig from the boy and seized him by the neck, when the brother of the boy interposed and rescued him from the hands of the ruflian.— The officer of the United states Government then triumphantly marched off* with his trophy. THE HEAT AND STORM.—The weather yester day, up to four o'clock P. M., was in per fect keeping with the two days which pre ceded it. If anything, the heat was more in tense. The thermometer marked as high as 93 degrees in the shade, which is the highest point reached this season. About, four o'clock P. M, a thunder storm came up, and the rain com menced falling in tremendous torrents. It contin ued to fall up to eight o'clock, and was at times so exceedingly heavy as to create serious apprehen sion of damage. Loss BY FIRE IN THE CITY.—Thu9 far, this year, the city has been greatlv exempted from destruc tive tires. The books of Col. Boyd, the Fire Inspec tor, Bhow the estimate of loss, from the Ist of Jau uary to the Ist of July, to be 819,973.03. For the same period, last year, the loss was §112,485.12, showing a difference in favor of this year of 892,512.09. PAID OFF— Guard //oune Filled with Soldier*. — The portion of the regiment stationed at the Cus torn House was paid oil' yesterday, and the conse quence was that many of the command got on a sprdfc. At 11 o'clock last night the guard-house was filled with soldiers, whose disorderly disposi tion could not be controlled by the commanding officers. THE UNITED STATES FLAG STRUCK HY LIGHT NING. — During the storm yesterday afternoon, the United States flap, which lias been flying from the top of the Custom House, southeast corner of Gay and Lombard streets, was Btruck by lightning and completely consumed. It was a small flag which had been hoisted on the 4th of July. APPOINTMENT IIY GEN BANKS.— Yesterday Briga dier-General Banks undertook to appoint George It. Dodge, Esq , Marshal of Police, instead of Col. John 11. Kenly, who recently assumed to hold that position. Gen. Banks also issues orders directing the military who have for some days been located in the city to return to their respective camps. APPOINTMENTS BY THE MAYOR. —Yesterday Mayor Brown sent to the Council, for confirmation, the name of Prof. William E Aiken as Inspector of Gas, and Frederick W. King as Inspector of Gas Meters Both appointments were confirmed.

PEDDLING WITHODT LICENSE —A man named Joseph Thompson was arrested on Saturday, charged with peddling without a license. Justice Hiss fined him 525 and costs, and committed him to jail in default of payment. THE CANNON. —The statement that the cannon have been removed from the city is incorrect.

TUN ETCK presented the petition ot the Mayor and Collector of I'crth Arobny, anfi various citizens of New Jersey. a>k- i'K 'hat in case the Naval Academy be permanent ly removed from Annapolis the same shonld be located at Pert!) Amb y. Mr. TEN LVCK in a few brief remarks presented the advantages and facilities of Pe(*th Ambov for the Naval School. Tbe petition being lengthy, the document was not read. Objections were made by Senators to refer arty bill not pertinent to the business for which Congress was called together. Mr. FKSSENDEN suggested that all petitions not necessarily connected with war matters be laid on the table, and he made a motion to that effect.— Tile motion was carried. Mr. KING presented the petition of the Military Board ot New Y'ork to remit all duties nn arms. Mr. FESSENDKN reported back frr.ra the Committee on Finance a bill to refund and remit duties on arms imported tor the use of the State. The bill was read and is as follows: "It is hereby resolved that the Secretary of Treas ury be, and is hereby instructed to remit all duties up n arms imported by States, until Ist January next, and refund all duties that have been already paid since May Ist ult. Provided that the Secre tary of the Treasury shall be satisfied that all such arms are imported in good faith towards the Uni ted States and are intended only f..r the use of the troops in employment of the United States Govern ment." The bill was passed. Mr. HALE offered a resolution that Dewitt C. Clark be appointed clerk of the Senate in the place of Mr. Nicholson, resigned. Passed. Mr. WILSON reported back the hill to increase the dd regiments to the same number as the new. Mr. TRUMBULL announced the death of Hon. Stephen A. Douglas, Senator from Illinois. He re ferred to t lie early history of Mr. Douglas and his political lire. He spoke of bis power of attaching j friends to himself, and the universal mourning which came from- the hearts of the people at his death. He was a marked man in every position. He entered the Senate w hen our great men, Clay. Benton and Calhoun, were in their prime, and prnted himself no weak competitor. One of his distinguished characteristics was an unconquerable will. He knew 110 such word as fail. He referred to his bold, magnanimous stand for the Union as the crowning act of his life. But, cut oil' in the zenith of his fame, his memory shall last a-long as constitutional liberty and free government exists. Mr. TRUMBULL offered the customary resolutions of respect and moved the Senate adjourn. Mr. MCDOUOAL followed, seconding the resolu tions and speaking in high terms ot the public and private character of Mr. Douglas. Mr. COLLAMEK said that Mr. Douglas was a native of Vermont, and she claimed the right to utter a few wolds at this time. Mr Douglas' career was a fine evidence of the j excellence of our institutions. Through his whole career of nearly twenty years, he had secured tbe | affections of the great mass of the Democratic | party, and held their hearts in his hand. Messrs. Nesmirh of Oregon, Browning of Illinois, j and Anthony of Rhode Island, all joined in lauding j the many good qualities of the distinguished states- | man. At the conclusion of Mr. Anthony's remarks, j tbe Senate adj urned, in accordance with the clause j incorporated in the resolutions offered by Mr. [ Trumbull. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Mr. STEVENS, of Pa., reported trom the Commit- j tee on Ways and Means a hill to authorize ana- I tional loan, and asked that it be made the special i order of the dav for to morrow (Wednesday.) Mr. VALLANDIGHAM rose to a point of order. He ! contended that, under the rules, the bill, not being an appropriation bill, cou d not now be considered. ' The CH.UK sustained the point of order. The bill was then referred to the Committee of the Whole on the State of the Union. Mr. STEVENS also reported a bill appropriating the sum of $6,000,000 tor the payment of the three months' volunteers up to June 30th. Mr. BURNETT, of Kentucky, said lie was confident j the bill would pass this House, and therefore should j not object to its introduction at this time, hut be 1 was opposed to the entire war policv of the Admin- j istration, and made the explanation in justice to | himself. Mr. STEVENS then gave notice of his intention to call the bill up to-morrow. Mr. WASHBBRNE, from the Committee on Com merce, reported a hill further to provide for the collection of duties on imports, and asked that it j be relerred back to that committee. He also re ported trom the same committee a bill authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to remit the fines and penalties incurred in certain cases, and one regulating the compensation of Government Sur veyors of the Customs —all of which were re-re ferred, by request, to the committee from whom reported. On motion of Mr. SHEFFIELD, the Committee on I Commerce was instructed to inquire whether any, j and what, further legislation is necessary to secure j the forfeiture and condemnation of piratical ves-els j seized by the authority of tlie United States, with j leave to rep rt by bill or otherwise. On motion of Mr. CVx it was resolved that the j President of the United States, if compatible with | the public service, communicate to this House any j correspondence which our Government has had j with toe Government of Spain with reference to the incorporation of the Dominican territory with ; the Spanish Monarchy; and what protest, if any, our Government has made against the insolent and j aggressive conduct of the Spanish Government. Several resolutions were offered and excluded ! yesterday adopted. 4 "" Kwd uuon the resolution Mr. LOVEJOY, of Illinois, offered as a resolution the first of the series of resolutions yesterday offered by him and rejected by the House, declaring it to be u oo part of the duty of soldiers of the United States to capture or return fugitive slaves," and de manded the previous question upon this resolution. Mr. MALLORY, of Kentucky, movea to lay the re solution on the table. Mr. STRATTON, of New Jersey, raised the point of order that the resolution was excluded under the ruie of the House yester day adopted. This point of order was overruled, whereupon Mr. STKATION appealed from the decision of the Chair. The decision of the Chair being sustained, the question was taken upon the inption to table and negatived - ayes 66. nays 80. Mr. CARLILE, of Virginia, appealed to Mr. Love joy to withdraw the call for the previous question until he could offer an ameuduieQt to his resolution, promising to renew it. Mr. LOVEJOY declined acceding to the request, when Mr. Carlile excitedly demanded the ayes aud nays upon the demand fur the previous question. He was determined, he said, to see whether this resolution was to be forced upon this House by such a process. The call for the previous question was sustained by a vote of 75 aves to 65 nays, and the question then recurring upon ttie adoption of the resolution, it was decided affirmatively. Ayes 92, nays 55. A message was received from the Senate an nouncing the death of Senator Stephen A. Doug las, in a series of resolutions eulogistic of his abil ities and worth, and that the Senate had adjourn ed out of respect to his memory. , Mr. RICHARDSON, of Illinois, submitted a series of resolutions similar in purport, which lie pre faced by remarks highly complimentary of the intellectual greatness and private worth of the deceased Senator, whom he ranked prominent among the most popular and gifted of American etatesuieu. Mr. Douglas was the architect of his own fame, and that lame shed lustre upon the country's history. He was a man of remarkable moral firmness, and once convinced or the path duty should lead him to tread, DO con siderations of personal interest or of ambition could swerve him from that line of duty His devotion to the Uni n and the Constitution was the controlling sentiment of his political life, and prayers for their perpetuation mingled with his latest breath. Mr. Richardson was much af fected, and his remarks were barely audible in the Reporters' Gallery. Mr. MCCLKRNAXD, from Illinois, followed in a similar strain, and added that Illinois would for ever cherish the memory of her illustrious son. Mr. JOHN J. CRITTENDEN, of Kentucky, spoke of Mr. Douglas as a patriot, who was ever ready to secrifice his personal ends to serve his coantry. — He knew no one now living so wfcll deserving the title of statesman as the Senator who bad-gone from among us, and whose death at this crisis wa3 felt to be a national loss. He held the life and the exer tions ofStephen A. Douglas to be worthy of imita tion. Messrs. C<>x, of Ohio, Diven, of New York, Ar nold, of Illinois, Wickliffe, of Kentucky, and Fouke and Law, of Indiana, also eulogized the memory of the deceased statesman. At the conclusion of these speeches, the House, in accordance with the resolutions submitted by Mr. Richardson, adjourned. THE COMET.—Professor Kingston, of the Magnet ic Observatory, Toronto, is of opinion that the comet is an entire stranger. Professor Mitchell, of the Dudley Observatory, declares it impossible yet to know if it has appeared before. Lalande, Clair ant, and Madame Lepante were engaged lor six months, from morning till night, in calculating the effects of planetary perturbation? on the time of the arrival of Halley's comet in 1758, a fact which speaks for itself. The comet now appears smaller. In forty-eight hours it has traveled nearly ten de grees. Front Cambridge Observatory we learn that it crossed the earth's orbit but a day or two in ad vance of us. Now it is more than twenty-five mil lions of miles awav, and rapidly increasing the dis tance. We may mention that it is claimed to have been fi'St observed in that city, April 4, by Mr. Albert E. Thatcher. RUSSIA'S ONE THOUSANDTH ANNIVERSARY. —Next j year is the thousandth anniversary of the founda tion of the Russian empire.

Commencement of the Conflagration—Scene at bond oil Bridge and Too ley Street—lm mense Stores of Cotton and other Merchan dise Lost. FIRST APPEARANCE OF THE FLAMES. ( From the London Utar, June 24.) The metropolis, on Saturday evening, was vis ited by one ot the most terrific conflagrations that has probably occurred since the great fire in 1666 Certainly, for the amount of property destroyed, nothing like it has b en experienced the last half century, the loss being estimated at £2 000,000 The scene of this catastrophe was on the water side portion of Toolev street, nearest London Bridge—a locality which has been singularly un fortunate during the last twenty five years—some of the largest fires having occurred there. The out break took place in I tie extensive range of prem ises known as Cotton's wharf and bonded ware houses, belonging to Messrs. Scovell. They had an extensive river frontage, and the whole space on the laud side, extending to Tooley street, was cov ered with eight or nine massive brick ware houses, six stories in height, some of which were formerly used as ordnance (government) stores, the whole occupying, as we were informed, about three acres. These buildings were filled with mer chandise of every description There were some thousands of chests of tea and silk stored in the upper floors, whiie in the lower one there was an immense stock of Russian tallow, various oils, of cotton, hops and grain. Every portion ot the entire establishment might be faid to have ' been loaded with goods, and of the whole of this ; very valuable property, said to be valued at up wards of a million, not a vrstige remains but the bare walls and an immense chasm of fire, which at dusk last evening lighted up the Pool and tbe east end of the city. To be added to this very serious loss is the destruction of the whole of the western range of Alderman Humphrey's warehouse, flank ing the new dock, known as Hay's wharf, the burning of four warehouses and quay, comprising Chamberlain's wharf, adjacent to St. Olave's i church, besides many other buildinge in Tooley | street. ! The saddest Hps of ail, however, was the deplor ' able accident which bepd Mr. .lames Braidwood, 1 Director of the London Fire Brigade, who, it will | be seen bv the subjoined details, perished at an ear ! ly stage of the fire. Mr. Braid wood surveyed the course of the fire : with his usual cool and practical eye, and posted his men where the best command c mid be had over the scene of destruction. About half-past seven I o'clock he entered the gateway leading to the whart nearest St. Oiave's chu'ch, and proceeded , down the avenue, where four ot his men were sup | porting and directing two branches from the float j trig engine. By this time the warehouse in which j the fire commenced was gutted; but the enormous j stock ot tallow which had been stored in the lower | floor caused the flames to rise to a considerable j height, and, if anything, raged more luriousl}' when water was scattered over them. The adja cent building also contained a large quantity of cot ton and oil, which ran down the loop-holes in a stream to the vaults as the warehouses ignited.— At intervals there were ioud reports, as if from the explosion of carbon or barrels of oil; but at the time it did not excite any particular alarm, as the firemen had been assured that those warehouses contained no explosive material, such as saltpetre, although there was a large stock of it in another part of the wharf. A terrific explosion suddenly occurred, and in an instant it was seen that the whole frontage of the second warehouse was coming down, falling out wards into the avenue. Mr. Henderson, foreman of the southern district of the biigade, who was stand ing within a few paces of Mr. Braid wood, shouted for them "all to run." The men dropped their branched. Two, with Mr. Henderson,escaped by the great gateway, and the other men ran in the opposite direction on to the wharf, where they jumped into the river. Mr. liraidwood made an effort to follow Mr. Henderson, but it was onlv mo mentarily, for he was struck down bv the upper part ot the wall and buried beneath some tons of brickwork. His death must have been instanta neous. Several of bis men would have rushed to extricate him, and indeed some did, hopeless as the task was, but another explosion happening caused the weu to fly io great terror. A TKKRIFIC NIOIIT SCENE. Towards 10 o'clock the aspect of the conflagra tion had become quite appalling, and terror and dismay seized upon all. The continual explosions of the saltpetre destroyed all the windows of the surrounding warehouses on both sides of Cotton's wharf, as also shattering the loop-hole doors of the various floors. By this means the great ware houses of Mr. Ald'-rman Humphrey, forming the western division of Hay's wharf and dock, nine sto ries in height, and extending inland some hundreds of feet, ignited, together with a large leather warehouse in llog lane, adjoining the land side en trance to the wharf. On the St. Oiave's church side of Cotton's wharf the fire w as making as rapid j racages, having penetrated the four exten sive warehouses comprising Chamberlain's 1 wharf, besides many houses and other build- ! iegs in a line with Tooley street. That j they must share a similar fate as that of Cot- j ton's wharf was evident; and what rendered mat- ' ters worse, the firemen were comparatively powerless. The two powerful steam floating en gines were compelled to be hauled away in conse quence of the flaming matter which poured over | the wharf walls and covered the surface of the j river the whole length of the burning warehouses; | as it wag they had lost a Urge quantity of hose by j the walls being blown down. The two steam land j engines built for the brigade by Shand <fc Mason were working vigorously in Tooley street, but the overpowering heat prevent d the men approaching the river near enough to be of any practical ser vice. Indeed the duty was fraught with great danger, and they were very properlv called off. The wh'de of the carriage way of Tooley street in all directions from* Vfll WUI n&lF*Lft' wed was that it would by some misfortune be brought into contact with turpentine and yet ignited. By eleven o clock the whole of the ab-ve men tioned warehouses at Hay's wharf and Chamber lain's wharf were gutted. It then became evident that the.fie would not progress any further west ward towards London Bridge. There was a slight break between Chamberlain's wharf and St. Oiave's church, although at one time there was every like lihood of the tacred edifice being destroyed. Hay's wharf now became the centre of operations. A wide dock separated the two divisions of ware houses, although they were connected by a flank warehouse on the land side. Mr. Alderman Hum phrey and Mr. Huutphrev, Jr., collecting all the j available strength of auxiliaries, made strenu-'us efforts to stav the tire from laying hold of the east- | em range of buildings. In the dock lav two ships i —the Stockton steamer, which was to have sailed i in the course of Satu day evening, and the Araeri- | can ship Pentucket. It was low water. It was | impossible to extricate them, and the rigging hav- ! ing taken fire it was supoosed that they either j would be burned or crushed by the walls of the gut ted warehouse which threatened to fall. Several engines were brought to play in all directions, and after two hours' incessant labor the fire was con quered and stopped at this point. Eventually both ships were towed out of the dock into the river. SECOND OUTBREAK OF THE FLAMES. Owing to the many floating policies upon the property stored in the different warehouses, and the owners living at such long distances, it is, as yet, impossible to find out the losses the respective persons have sustained. Messrs. Scovell's wharf, alone, at least those portions destroyed, consisted of seventeen tremendous warehouses, similar in construction and size to the London Docks, and contained a similar description of goods, the most i explosive and daugerons being saltpetre, sulphur j and oils. In some of tbe other warehouses were ; hemp, jute, rice and spices, such as mace (a very j inflammable article), pimento, of which there was over twenty tons, innumerable barrels of ginger, over 1,000 tons of rice, and a vast amount of artists' and other colors; but to tell tbe exact amount of Russia tallow and oils in the various buildings is at present impossible. One immense warehouse, four floors high, was stocked in every part with colonial produce, worth £IOO,OOO. The seeds of various kinds in another warehouse adjoining are stated to be worth £l*o,- 000. Gums, shellac, arabic, dragon, gambouge, and cochineal were stored, which it is stated were worth £IBO,OOO. This building bad fire proof iron doors, and tbe property mi ht have been saved had the doors been closed, but, unfortunately, they were left open. The warehouses on the other side of the premises were also divided by doable iron doors, bat as in the case of the other building thev were left fully open, and when tbe flam s caught the spices, especially the mace, it burnt like gas, the oil that rau from it, as the top part of lh- cases was on, flew along the flooring like streams of run ning gas. Every one who had anything to do with the wharf then became convinced that all they could possibly do would be of no avail in saving the pro perty, unless they could manage to close the iron doors, but that they could not do, owing to the fury with which the flames rolled out of the windows and loopholes, with terrific violence andsgrandeur. The warehouses near Chamberlain's wharf con tained stock in trade of nearly half a million in value, consisting of glue, jute, varnish, paints, colors, white and pig lead, oils, tallows, gums, Sic., and other articles of drysaltery. There were like wise in the premises soft soap (in Scotch casks), rosin, sugars, teas, coffee and an immense cargo of black and white pepper, the latter said to be worth £5,000. Tliis proved to be of great inconvenience, and caused much pain to the firemen, for as the condiment became ignited and the water fell upon if, the spice entered their eyes, and greatly injured their power of seeing. [ From the London Times, June 26 1 The huge pile of ruins caused by this fearful disaster continues as unapproachable as ever. Even with all the assistance aflorded by the late heavy rains, and the continuous streams of water which are poured on them on all parts Irom the mains by night and day, the neat they give off is so iniense that it is impossible to penerate beyond a few yards inside the blackened walls from the land side. Nothing dare approach them from the river. In the centre several large cellars of oil and tallow are blazing 8s furiously as ever. The glare of these' flames, which are unseen during the day, shines out as brightly as before with nightfall, when, of course, the alarm is spread that the tire has again started on a fresh career of destruction. There is, however, we are happy to say, not the least danger now of much additional loss. All the ruins on the outskirts (except, as we have said, those next the river) are not only cold, but well saturated with water. The burning cellars in the centre, which cannot be leached, mus' burn them selves out, and from what is known of their con tents, a long time must elapse before this takes place if they are left to themselves. The chiefs of the Fire Brigade, however, are of opinion that in a day or two more they will be able to gel the hose sufficiently forward to reach even these centres of fire; and, if so, we may soon hope to see the last embers of this tremendous conflagra tion extinguished. The cellar lull of tallow, be neath the warehouse which leans so fearfully over the spot where Mr. Braidwood's body was discov ered has almost burnt itself away. Since Monday evening the hose of three engines has been pouriDg in streams at one end, and driving the great mass of tire it contain* out at the other, in the centre of the ruins, where it is impotent for further mischief. So great has been the quantity of water poured in here that the vaults have been almost flooded, and an immense quantity of the melted tallow floated completely out. The body of flame at this spot is now so much reduced that the firemen have been enabled to advance lar enough to reach wilh water the walls at the end of the vault, through the aper- I tures of which the mass of flame has b-en pouring since Saturdav afternoon, and which are therefore almost white with heat. Tremendous clouds of steam are thrown off here as the jets of the hose fall upon the brickwork Unfortunately, however, this side of the warehouse is as much out of the perpendicular as the front, and is certain tp become still more so as the mass of brickwork contracts in cooling, so that even when the fire is entirely extinguisned, the immi nent danger will prevent the spot being used as a base of operations for penetrating further towards Ihe centre, where the great vault* still boil and name unchecked. Adjoining the cellar which has thus been partialis extinguished is another, stored entirely with lard and bacon. This has never been on fire, though, to judge from the hot jets of steam that have been lading from the loopholes since Sunday, the contents must have been as effectually overdone as if the flames had actually found their way in. PROPERTY DESTROYED. It has been ascertained that the following goods were recently lying at Cotton's wharf, most of which are destroyed by th* fire : Sugar. 878 tons; coffee, 420 tons; cocoa. 313 bag.*; rice, 4.487 tons: pepper, 241 tons; ginger, 30 casks, 757 cases and 162 bags; cassia, 167 packages; cassia buds, 12 packages; nutmegs, 20 packages; mace, 9 packages; doves, 684 packages; sago, 785 tonF; sago flour, 88 tons; cochineal, 490 bags; lac dye, 1.938 pack ages; saltpetre, 484 tons; jute, 1.150 tons; India c.tton, 17,764 bales; cardamons, 15 package.-; cutch, 85 tons; galls. 23 packages; gums. 763 packages; gutta percba, 27 tons; hemp, I 202 ton-; oil, 214 tons; castor oil, 427 cases; safll over, 167 bales; senna, 87 bales; shellac, 63 packages; gambier, 311 | tons; and tallow, 8,800 casks. At Hay's wharf, which is partially destroyed, it is known that 16,000 bags of Mauritius sugar were lying. EFFECTS ON* THE LONDON MARKET. The loss of ihe large quantity of goods by the fire at Cotton's wharf had not much effect upon the markets in Mincing lane yesterday. Sago, how ever, has advanced considerably, and holders will not sell unless at a rise of about 20 per cent, on former quotations. A VOICE FROM THE PAN HANDLE. Judge Thompson issued, on the 4th of July last, a circular to the people of Northwest Virginia and the Senate of the United States, from which we extract the following : The present usurped and tyrannical despotism in Northwestern Virginia has declared my office of Judge of the 20th Judicial Circuit, vacant; and this, notwithstanding 1 have at all times, in season and out of season, on the bench, and in public dis | courses, preserved, protected and defended the | Constitution of the United States as the supreme iaw of the land; not withstanding I was the first j man in Northwestern Virginia to take ground for the determined support of the Union; notwith standing that for this, my firm and constant sup port of the Union, the Convention at Richmond have instituted an inquiry looking to my removal from the same office, because of this, my loyalty to the Union; notwithstanding I have in every act and sentiment, publicly or privately done or ex pressed, maintained the supremacy of the Consti tution of the United States and the perpetuity of the Union in its moral integrity, as the great re presentative of national republicanism in the world; notwithstanding 1 have maintained all this by my solemn acts of office declaring Ihe doctrines of se cession lawle.-s and unconstitutional; notwithstand ing 1 have thus declared the ordinance of secession passed by the Convention of Virginia, and all its acts, laws and other proceeding* intended or used to carry such ordinance into effect, void, as being against the Constitution of the Union, and inimical to its integrity; notwithstanding I have ia my sol emn official acts declared the officers and soldiers ot the United States, who are on the soil of Vir ginia, for the protection of national property and to execute the laws of the Union, to be here in the peace of the commonwealth and under the protec tion of its laws. Notwithstanding all these, this usurped and law less faction in the State which now sets itself above the regular Constitution of the Mate, pre scribes to me an oath above the Constitution, and seeks to impose on in ■ an ex post facto qualification unknown to the Censtiturion. * * * * They know that it is no corruption on my part, for 1 have only to take the little test-oath furni hed by Couthon and my present office is secure to me beyond a peradventure. They all know, some of them have said to me, that. I am wanted for their Supreme Court, if I will take the gentle and fraternal oath of Couthon. They know that whatever of danger, distrust and surveillance is to be encountered, comes here in pursuing an independent course, and that subser vience will avoid all this. Whatever of property and wife and children, and all 1 hold dear on this earth is in their jurisdiction, and for myself, before heaven, I defy and denounce their tyranny* and usurpation and their Couthon test-oath, grimed and beslavered as it is with the orgies and the deep curses of the French Anarchy. I denounce their tyranny and usurpation Because it is unconstitutional in its origin, pro ceedings and ends. It violates the spirit of the Constitution of the United States in this, that open what they affirm and-1 know is intended to be by man)* of them, it is the inaugurating movement of a new .State, without the prerequisite required by the 3d section of the Constitution of the United States. It violates the spirit of the Constitution of the United States on the part of the Administration, because it is an interference in the internal admin istration of affairs of the State, beyond the protec tion of its loyal and obedient citizens; it is protect ing th#m in the violttion of the Constitution of the State; in taking from the people, lawlessly, the right to elect their Governor and Lieutenant-Gov ernor; in the appointment of an irresponsible Ex ecutive Council of State or Revolutionary Direct - ry unknown to the Constitution and the laws; in sustaining a fragment of a Legislature without any constitutional quorum in legislating for an en tire people; in protecting and enforcing the laws of a legislature which does not in a legal and con stitutional manner embrace one-twentieth of the conbtitutionaiiv appointed and apportioned legisla tive jurisdiction ot the Commonwealth; in supply ing vacancies, even to this poor fragment of au thority, hv modes of election unknown to the laws and the Constitution, and otherwise in calling t< - of a legislafufeV&y* arisTawlesV u'nprecedenteS and revolutionary. * * * * * Will you, Senators of the United States, who are not already in complicity with this affair, justify this flagrant usurpation; this lawless invasion of public liberties; this unconstitutional overthrow of all constitutions; this foul interposition of an ad ministration in the a flairs of an internal govern ment of the State, for purposes beyond those recog nized by the spirit and the compromises of the sa cred instrument under which you act, and which in a great measure has been brought about by that | state policy at Washington, which says "we wi I not violate the Utter of the Constitution, but if you want our protection you must violate your own ; Constitution and laws, and principles of public lib- | ertv, and the voice of legal majorities, constitution ally expre*j.ed," upon which is based all of republi canism which is guaranteed by our forms of gov ernment, and the express stipulations of the very instrument which, I fear, is made the pretext of civil war and fraternal slaughter; and when .yu, the people of Western Virginia, have done this, you are sold to ua tor all purposes which may be demanded of you. To vou, the solemn judges of the Constitution and the laws, I appeal to maintain the integrity of conscience and to leave your final protect, when the occati >n shall come, on that page of your rec ords on which is written your protest against the desp tic repeal of the habeas corpus, that last refuge of liberty against tyranny. To you, the people whom I haye served faithfu'- ly, and how well your own vote in honest judgment of two to one over my competitor, only a short time since, would authorize me to say, to you I appeal to become calm and considerate and ask \ ourselves whither these things tend? Where are they to end? ****** 1 oppose their proceedings because they are, from root to branch, unconstitutional, unit-arrant able and unnecessary. Because in what th-v have done, they and the administration at Washington have violated Ihe spirit of the Constitution of the United States; because in nothing that they have done have they conformed to the Constitution of the Slate which they say they intended onlv to reor ganize; and because they have organized so as to give high offices to men, who under other cirettin stances could never have reached to more than the venal and cort upt dribs of party compensation, and who would have deemed themselves favored with the offal. * * _ * * * * 1 refuse to touch the taint and grime of this test oath, also, because the oligarchy at Wheeling is, in the main, composed of the drippings and leav ings of that old party, to whose very heart the offices of the republic had become a corrupt, a de grading and a constant desire in their life pursuit of them through all forms of party and all changes of name, and all bargains aLd corruptions in the combinations of disappointed and greedy place hunters to that last act ot infamy and disloyalty tB integrity and worth, the trade and sale of body and soul to abolitionism and the instauration of negro equality on the soil of Virginia, that this is so, and that the usurped, lawless and unconstitu tional rule at Wheeling was the suggestion of northern venalitv, northern fanaticism, northern policy and northern avarice, I veriiv believe, and for the reasons given and for others; the argument upon which it is based is the fallacious and incon sequential production of the Slcjor Italgetty of Massachusetts politics, the man who has ever had an argument and a coat for that Presidential candi date who was most likely to succeed. Because the money of the North lias been ten dered to these men, and the Minie muskets of Mas sachusetts have be. u received at Wheeling. Because 1 know that the plan sugg sted by Iloadlr, of Massachusetts, endorsed by Sumner, of the Senate, and placed in the hands of Postmaster- Ceneral Blair, was forward,d to Wheeling to a well-Known agent of the Government, and has constituted the staple of the argument on which these most wrongful proceedings have been insti tuted and consummated, in the violation of consti tutions, in the overthrow of well settled forms of proceeding, and in the initiation of despotic powers. These things, men of Western Virginia, ntav, perhaps, have your present concurrence; but be lieve one who has fifty-five years of practical ex perience and knowledge of the human heart and human affairß, and pause while I tell you that there is a fearful day in the future unless you get back to ancient tortus of proceeding, and to the love of that order which'grows out of obedience to law and to that obedience which is an enlightened regard for private conscience and public interests, based, as Mr. Van Winkle says, on the constitution al integers of society. . The sacrifice which I have made in behalf of constitutional Ireedom entitles me, whether it will protect mo or not in doing so, to speak treely in its behalf. GEO - W. THOMPSON. SECESSION OF INDIAN NATIONS. —The Galveston New* of the 25ih of June has the following intelli gence from the Indian nations: Mr. J. A. Echols. Secretary of the Commission ers sent bv the Texas Convention to the Indian na tion, returned recently. He informs us that the Chickasaw Legislature passed an act of secession by a unanimous vote a out the Ist instant. A con vention was to be held by the Choctaws about the 14th instant for the same purpose, and there is no doubt that nation has also Beceded. The Creek na tion had a convention about the 12th May,but they sat with closed doors, and their action is not there tore certainly known, but as delegates to the Southern Confederacy ware immediately sent, no doubt is entertained that an act of secession was passed. Mr. Echols has brought to Austin the treaties that have been executed bv Commissioners on the part ot Texas and the Chickasaw nation, with tire wild tribes west of the civilized Indians, inclu tog the Texas Reserves.

II is now becoming evident that the eleven new regiments ordered tor the United States regular array cannot be raised in any seasonable time by the usual recruiting system. The number of ac cepted men at all the rendezvous opened thus far and for each regiment there are fur or five, and often more, offices—does not exceed 140 persons, and at this rate if w uld require nearly half a year to organize the 19,000 soldiers required.

The Starving Poor in New York. In the Board ol Council men, on M'-rday, Mr. Stevenson adv<ca ed the adoption of Mr. Orion's resolution*. He said there was absolute want in the 18th ward, ar.d many of the families of the vol unteers who went t<> maintain the hon< r of the American flag were in a state of statvation. It was notorious that the Common Cour cil never de sign- d that SS00,00() shou-d he yiv-n to • qu p ri inents, and $200,000 for families.

The following resolution, am mg others, adopted unanimously at Kooxville, will give some idea of the tone of the meeting • That in the administration of our government during the last three month-, under Ah .ham Lin coln, we behold our beloved country distracted at home and disgraced abroad; foreign commerce paralyzed; domestic trade annihilated; .ur coasts blockaded; our majestic rivers shut up; railroads seized and broken; the Constitution trampled under foot; the laws suspended; courts and judges power less; citizens imprisoned without warrant or re dress; Legislatures overawed by the bayonet; State* invaded and dismembered; business pi OF trated; markets destroyed; banks collapsed; ch b;s repudiated; credit, both public and private, lan guishing; and, in a word, a sanguinary war raging over one-bait the Union, which, if continued, must inevitably drain the nation of its blood and treas ure, demoralize the American people, and sweep away every vestige ol constitutional freedom. Itefusnl to Allow Negroes to Vote in Con ner tie ut. Last year the Connecticut Legislature voted by a large majority, to amend the State Constitution, so as to allow* negroes to vote. This amendment had to go over to the present session, and it adopted by a two-thirds vote, was to go to the people for their approval or rejection; but the vote this year is as strongly adverse as it was last year favorable to the project—being 44 yeas to 120 nays. New Hampshire Sentiment. The Democracy of New Hampshire are loval to their country; but they will defend and maintain the freedom of thought, speech, and the pres*, at all hazards—at the point of the bayonet, if need be.
