Il is claimed (hat there is a prece dent for this in the nomination of Van Buren and Adams, who resided in adjoin ing States. Washington, Aug. 11. A call was made yesterday upon the President to communicate all such cor respondence as has taken place between the Unite I States and Peru in regard to the Lobos Islands. Mr. Webster gave bis opinion that the Lobos Islands being more than a marine league Irom the coast of Peru, and the Government never hav ing exercised any control over them, vessels of the United Slates have a right to go there for guano without paying trib ute to the Peruvian Government. He also recommended that a vessel of war be despatched to protect American ves sels. The I'rigaie Raritan was according ly despatched. Washington, A tig. 12.

A fearful riot occurred at Fort Hamil ton yesterday afternoon, bcl tv. en 15 or 20 troops stationed at the fort, and some colored waiters at the 11. inilton House, in front and on the grounds of the house, hut no cause is assigned for the riot.— The troops used knivA, and bayonets, cutting some of 1 lie negroes severely. A body of troops under Major Morris succeeded in restoring order. Seven of lhe men from the fort have been arrested. Tlie deaths in this city for the past week were 500, of which 12 were Iroin cholera. Tlie schr Pilot, seized by the British man-of-war, near the fishing grounds, his been released.

Story doubted. Tlie difficulties between the Americans at Mariposa, have been settled by the in tervention of the French Consul at San Francisco. BcrrALO, Aug. 16, A most diabolical and fiendish murder was committed, this morning, in the up per part of the city. About 3 o’clock this morning, Mrs. Hartman, wife of Jos. Hartman, who keeps a grocery on the corner of Spruce and Genesee streets, was awakened by two colored inen, and as she says, one of them approached the lied and struck her husband, who lay on the front side of the bed. two blows over the nose —the other over tlie chin, killing him in stantly. One of ihc fiends then struck her on the right arm. breaking it in two places, on her attempting to rise struck her over the head. They then left the house, and she alarmed the neighbors, who caine and took her up stairs, when she fainted. She lies in a very precarious slate, and her life is despaired of. These are the only particulars we have as yet obtained. No inquest has vet been held over the body. A drawer in which there were several dollars wi s found oj»en and the money gone. Jos. H trtman has been a resident of Buffalo over twenty years, and has a family of six children, and was universally respected. The bar of iron has been found and is in the hands of A. J. Taylor, police officer. Hung. —Five negroes, who murdered Jas. Houston, in Mackintosh county. Ga., were tried by a meeting of the citizens [of said county, found guilty, and exeeu ited on Monday week. Office—Corner of Jackson aud Fifth .Street*. Selllßj Ci.irkrn. to thr Legislature. While the Legislature of Missouri was in session, a few years ago. a green fellow from the country came to Jefferson to sell some chickens. He had about two dozen, all of which he had tied by the legs to a string, and this, being divided equ liy. and thrown across his horse or shoulders, formed his mode of convey ance. leaving the fowls with their heads i hanging down, with little else of them visible, than their naked legs, and a pro miscuous pile of outstretched wings, and ruffled feathers. Alter several ineffec tual efforts to dispose of his load, a wag to whom he had made an offer of sale, told him he did not want chickens him self, hut perhaps he could sell them at a large stone house over there, (the Capi tol) that there was a mall over there buying on speculation for the St. Louis market, and no doubt he could find a ready sale. The delighted countryman started,when his informer stopped him. “ Look here, 1 ' said he, “when you get over there go up stairs and then turn to the leit. The man stops in that large room. Y’ou will find him at the oilier end of the room, an I is now engaged with a number of fellows buying chick ens. Il a man at the door should stop you, don’t mind him. He has chickens hiinsell for sale, and tries to prevent other people selling theirs. Don’t inind him but go ahead.” Following the directions, our friend soon found himself at the door of the Hall of Representatives. To open it and enter was the work of a moment. Tak ing from his shoulders the string of chickens, and giving them a shake to freshen them, he commenced his journey toward the Speaker’s chair, the fowls, in the meantime, loudly expressing from the half-formed crow io the harsh quark, their bodily presence, and their sense of bodi’v pain. “ I say', sir.” Here he had passed nearly half down the aisle, when he was seized by Major Jackson, the door-keeper, who happened to be returning from the clerk’s desk. VVhat are you doing here with these chickens ; get out, sir, get out,” whispered the iioor-keoper. “ No you don’t though ; you can’t come that game over me; you’ve got chickens yourself for sale, get out yourself, and let me sell mine. I say. sir,” he continued in a louder tone to fhe Speaker, “arc you buying chickens here to-day ? I’ve got some prime on,es here.’’ And he held up his string and shook his fowls until their music maddthe walls echo. “Let ine go. sir,” to ihe door-keeper, •• lei me go. I say. Fine large chickens,” to the Speaker, “only six bits a dozen.” “ Where’s the Sergeant-at-arms ?” roared the Speaker, “take that man out.” “Now don’t, will you. I ain’t hard to trade with. You let me g >,” to the door keeper, “you've sold your chickens, now let me have a chance. I say, sir,” to tie Speaker in a louder tone, “ are you buying chickens to—” “Go ahead,” “at him again,” “that’s right,” whispered some of the members, who c mid command gravity enough to speak, “at him gain ” “He'll buy them.” “He only wants you to lake less—at him again.” “I say. sir, you up there, (to the Speaker) you can have ’em for six hits! not a cent less. Drat your hides, don’t shove so hard, you’ll hurt them chickens. I say, yon, sir, up there.” Here the voice was lost by the closing of the door. An adjournment was moved and carried, and the members, almost frantic with mirth, rushed out to find our friend in high altercation with the door keeper. about the meanness of selling his own chickens, and not fettling anybody else sell their’s, adding, that “if he could just sec that man up there by himself, he’d be bound they could make a trade, and that no man could aff>rd to raise chickens for less than six hits.” The members bought his chickens by a pony purse, and our friend left the Capi tol, saying as he went down stairs, “Well, this is the darndest roughest place for selling chickens that I ever come across.” —Spirit of the Times. Three fires on Saturday, the work of incendiaries. Firemen rioting all night all over the city. Columbus Engine ta ken from them by the “ Vigilant” hoys and thrown into the falls. Guns were fired, stones thrown, and mant persons injured. The “ Mechanic ” and Patnpsco two orderly companies were attacked by row dies.

The following, though not new, will bear reading at least once in seven years: One day as Zachari.di Hodgson was going to his daily avocation after break last, lie purchased a fine, large cod.li'li, and sent it home with directions to his wife to have it cooked for dinner. As no particular mode of cooking was pre scribed, the good woman well knew that whether she boiled it or made it into chowder, her lm*band wonhl scold her when he came home. Bn! she resolved to please him once if possible, and there fore cooked portions of it in different ways. She also, with some little difficul ty procured an amphibious animal from a brook back of the house, and plunged it into the pot. In the meantime her hus band came home; some covered dishes were placed upon the table, and with a frowning, fault-finding look, the moody man commenced the conversation : “ Well, wife, did you get that fish I boughi?” “ I shouM like to know how you have cooked it. I will bet anything you have spoiled it for my eating, (taking off the cover,) I thought so. What in creation |>i)s»es*cd yon to iry it ?—I would ua lief eat a boiled frog.” “ Why, my dear, I thought you loved it best fried.” “ You didn't think any such tiling.— You knew belter—l never loved tried fish—why didn’t you boil it ?” “ My dear, the last time we bad fresh fish you know I boiled it. and you said you liked it best tried. But I have boil ed some also.” So saving she lifted the cover, and lo! the shoulders of a cod nicely boiled, were neat'y deposited in a dish, the sight of which would have made an epicure re joice, but which on'y added to the ill na ture of her husband. “A pretty di-li, this!” exclaimed lie. “Boiled fish! chips and porridge! It' you had not been one of the most stupid of woman kind, you would have made it into a chowder.” His wife, with a smile, immediately placed before him a tureen containing an excellent chowder. “ My dear,” said she, “ I was resolved to please you. There is your favorite dish!” ' “ Favorite dish, indeed,” grumbled the discomfitted husband, “ I dare say it is an unpalatable wishy-washy mess. I would rather have a boiled frog than the whole of i<” This was a common expression of his and had been anticipated by his wife, who, at this juncture, opened a large dish near her husband, and there was a bull Irog of portentious dimensions arid pug nacious aspect stretched out at lull length! Zachariah sprang from his chair at the sight of the unexpected apparition. “ My dear,” said his wife, in a kind entreating tone, “ I hope you will at lenpth lie able to make your dinner.” Z chariah could not stand this. His surly mood was overcome ; he hurst into a hearty laugh. He acknowledged that his wife was right and he was wrong; and declared that she should never again have occasion to give him another lesson. Baltimore, Aug. 15. A criminal trial has been in progress at Albany, for two weeks. An Irish girl, named Jane O'D ilmell was charged with stealing large quantities ot table, towel and bed linen from Congress Hall and other places. A person look the stand as a witness in her favor.but in the cross examination acknowledged that one of the jurors had been tampered with.— The Judge. Aug. 2, immediately dis charged the whole jury—sent the girl lo prison to await another trial—committed half a dozen of her witnesses who are suspected of having committed gross per jury—and suspended tlie last witness a lawyer from law practice, until further order from the court. He (the lawyer) will be examined on a charge of misde meanor. The Whigs are in fine spirits all over the coun'ry. They have something to m ike them so. Every day brings acces sions to their ranks. G«>od courage and pnod conduct is generally well rewarded. We verily believe these Whigs arc re solved to nave a regular Harri'on victory. The boys deserve it sur«. A Gentle Up proof. “ Yes, mv dear.” A Good Reason and a Plain one.— The following incident took place at Dearborn, in this county, on the day of the Whig Convention: Two plain and sensible appearing farm ers who were acquaintances, met and shook hands near Huplin’s tavern. — “Well,” said one of them to the other, “ what brought you to a Whig Conven tion? You are not a Whig I believe?” “No,” replied the other—“lam not a Whig, but I have heard of Gen. Scott, who is the Whig candidate for President —but I give you my word, though I pro fess to be a reading man for a farmer. I never heard of our candidate until he was nominated. I shall vote lor Gen. Scott, because he has shown himself a true man, and a prtriot.” “ Well,” replied the oth er, “ I have determined to do the same thing for the same reason. Had a well known, patriotic, democratic statesman been nominated, I should have supported him against Gen. Scott; bull am not politician enough to vote for a mere man of straw, solely because the politicians have seen fit to nominate him.” —Detroit Mv. Indian Corn and Irish Potatoes.— The Engli*h papers last received repre sent the sudden re-appearuncc of the po tato rot. The signs were developed im mediately a r ter the great thunder-storm of July 22d, the leaves and stems in the vicinity of London appearing withered and burnt. A Liverpool paper states that in that neighborhood the disease, in till cases, has been unusually rapid in ac tion; tubers which had been perfectly sound ten days before, had since been cut | off by the blight. No report, as yet, of the progress of the disease in Ireland. Should the vi'itation of this potato rot j prove a general one to Great Britain and Ireland, there will be increased demand for Indian corn from this country during the fall and winter, and the growing crop in many sections of the West is not as promising as usual. The supplies of' corn now in London and Liverpool are light, and the shipments from the United States have been nearly one-third less than last year. On the list of graduates at West Point for 1832, who have been appointed to the regiment of mounted rifleman is the name of Cadet Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte who stood No. 11 in his class at the time of his examination.

The father. ' Jerome N. Bonaparte, Sr., is a gentleman of la’‘ge wealth, now resident at Balti more. His mother. Madame Patterson, we understand is also living at Baltimore in possession of a considerable fortune. An article in the London News con tains the following happy picture of Mr. Clay in debate: “Henry Clay’s reported speeches par take of the neutrality of which he ever boasted in the compromises which were the principles of his statesmanship. It needed to seethe moistened eye. the quiv ering lip, the tremulous hands playing with the spectacles, and tlie movement of tlie tall lithe figure; it needed to hear the wonderful variety of his tones, and to have thrilled to the exquisite pathos of his voice, to understand the power which he exercised over the whole mind of those who listened to him in a silence which seemed as if it could never be bn,ken. The silence has changed sides now. It is lie who is mute, while every voice is busy discussing his powers and his deeds.” River and Harbor Bill. —Mr. Da vis, from the Committee on Commerce in the Senate, has reported the River and Harbor Bill, with amendments, appropria ting in the aggregate $160,000 for im provements not included in the bill as it came from the House. Among them. $lO 000 for Huron harbor, and $15,000 for Ashtabula harbor. Should the hill pass the Senate thus amended, it will go back to the House which will increase the chances of its defeat. We fear it will fail in that event, as only 41 Democrats in the House voted for the bill without amendments.— Cleveland Herald. National Fi.ag. —The following is the original resolution adopting the Stars anil Stripes: “In Congress, June 14th, 1777, Re solved, That tlie flag of the thirteen Uni ted States, he thirteen stripes alternate') red and white; that the Union he thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” As new States were added to the Union, from time to time, new stripes were added to the flag, till the number had increased to fifteen or twenty. At length, about thirty years ago, the stripes were redu ced by act of Congress to the original number of thirteen. A curious case is related by the Troy Budget of a girl, in that city, losing her speech for a whole week ! Being diso bedient, and refusing to answer her moth er, when spoken to, she found—after sit- ; ting dumpishly in the corner for about an hour, brooding over her bad conduct— ! that she was unable to utter or articulate a word! Her friends did not take par ticular notice of her for a couple ot days, supposing she was keeping up her pet.— Finally she wrote down that she could not speak, when her friends became alarmed,and consulted several physicians. After a week had passed, she awoke one morning, and found herself again in ' speaking order. EDITORS A,\D PUBLISHERS. The New York Times says the Hon. Joseph Ingersoll, who has been appointed American Minister to England, will grace that high position by his intellectual abil ities, his liberal accomplishments, and aptitude and experience in public affairs. It would not have been easy to designate a man better fitted for usefulness in that place. He has long been known to the people of this country as a statesman of sound judgment and of decided strength. The place of Mr. Lawrence will be well filled. Some person in Newton N. 11.. taking time by the firelock, sent a man with a good horse and w'agon to Newburyport. Massachusetts, to lay in a store of the ardent before the supplies shouid be cut off by the new liquor law. The man re turned to Newton on foot, very much fa tigued. and in a bewildered state of ininaf, the same night about 12 o’clock, since which time the horse, carriage and jugs, after (lie most diligent search have not been heard from.

It has six wires to Philadelphia, and seven thence to New York. It employs 120 persons in all, at 13 stations. The total receipts from July Ist, 1847. to July Ist, 1852, $385,641. Within (he past fiscal year, 53 85/ messages have been trans mitted, earning $103,860, and showing the average cost oj each message to be 40 cents. The dividends have been Bto 12 per cent annually; probably consider able more this year, as by the consolida tion ol ilie wires of the Buiu Telegraph since January, the nett earnings have been much increased. “Never Weaky in Well Doing.’* —Matthew Graves, of ibis county, on T tiesday last walked 28 miles for the purpose of proc tring a marriage license to marry his fifth wife.

Jt measured fifteen feet from the end of its tail to the tip of the nose; it contained king crabs, a sea-gull and a man’s hoot, with a quantity of hones, resembling those of Ihc human body. It took seven men to haul and lash it to the gunnel of the pilot-boat. The jaws contain eight rows of teeth. Judge Wright, editor of the Cincinnati Gazette, met with a severe accident on Monday evening, on Fourth street, near his residence. In crossing the street he was kicked iu the breast by a horse, tho blow felling him to tlie ground senseless, in which condition he was conveyed to his residence. How to Cook a Potato.— Wash it well, hut let there he no scraping. At the thickest end cut off a piece tlie size of a sixpence. This is the safety-valve, through which the steam escapes, and all rents in tlie skin are thereby prevented, ju't as tlie valve prevents a rupture in steam boilers. Ir takes Wentworth.— The Chicago Democrat bears a flaming cut at the Lead of the Pierce and King ticket, in the back ground of which appears a vessel high and <lr>/ on a sandbar. Hurrah for Pierce and Interna! Improvements ! The Rcchesl r Advertiser is responsi ble for these hints : Never should we sa lute one mm as a “gentleman” because lie wears broadcloth, and another as a “ man” because lie wears sheep's grey. If tlie one should put on the other’s clothes, we should not know the “ man” from the “ gentleman.” A female may he a “ lady” though she washes for a liv ing. That is, if the title of lady or gen tleman be worth anything.
