The Trial or Keefer.— The trill wu re sumed at nine o’clock yesterday. The first witness called was Dr. Vermis, who testified in relation to the medical bearing of the case. Nothing was elicited beyond the facts made known by Dr. Wren, in his testimony on Monday night. This witness occupied the stand all the morning. The trial was resumed in the afternoon, and several witnesses for the defence were exam ined. About three o’clock the defence rested the case, and Mr. Briabin commenced his plea, which occupied an hour or more. He was followed by the counsel in the prosecu tion, who consumed the remainder of the afternoon in speaking. At the conclusion of the case, Justice Si mons committed the defendant to Jail, to await his trial at thc District Court, not hav ing the power to allow him to be bailed out, the offence not being a bailable one. LaAckst. —A colored gemman named Charles J ohnson was arraigned before Judge Simons yesterday on charge of stealing about two hundred dollars from Ida Martin, a frail though beautiful creature who inhabits a house up on Fort street. Miss Ida testified that Jonsiug, who is her cook, got the key of the closet to get some flour. Her trunk, containing her cash capital was in the same closet. Remembering this fact, she went after him, but Charles had already taken the money instead of the fl>»ur, and sloped. Capt. Morton arrested him on Wednesday night, but none of the money was in his possession. Stephen Brooks, another of the sable gentry, testified that Jonsing offered him S2OO in gold and bills to go to Pittsburgh with him. stating that he had stolen it from Ida. Johnson made no defence. Judge Simons committed him to answer the charge of Lar ceny at the next District Court. Nearly as Item. —A citizen who inhab its a lonely room in a building up street, in company with another bach, came near ma king an ‘‘unfortunate occurrence” a night or two 6ince. His room-mate came home late, and was considerably in liquor. During the night, being sick he went to the where his supper and potations had a rising tendeucy. During thi-, thc other occupant of the room woke up, and seeing the dim outlines of a figure restlessly hanging in the window, for it was very dark, visions of burglars and incendiaries loomed up before him. Grasping a revolver which always lay under his pillow, he silently cocked it, and with trembling nerves was extending it at the object in the window. Another mo ment and a serious affair might have been the result, when uu unmistakeable sound came from the supposed burglar. The truth flashed on him in time to stay the finger al ready pressing the trigger, and he replaced the weapon trembling now worse than ever, to reflect how near he had been to woundiug —perhaps killing his companion. Portrait of llon. David Olmstkad.— This portrait, which the City Council ordered some weeks ago, now adorns the Council chamber. It is an excellent likeness of the first Mayor of Saint Paul. It is from thc pencil of Mr. Cooley, and does credit to that artist’s reputation. We have been so engrossed by Coroners’ in quests, trial« conventions and other matters for a few day’s that we have scarce had a chance to notice the revival of business at the Levee. The arrivals and departures are in creasing. The business and bustle on the Levee is daily augmenting. The dull season is somewhat o\’er, and we will now hate, un til winter sets iu, a steady flow of trade and t ravel. Our merchants are preparing for live ly times, and they will come. The city presents rather a busy and life like .’'.ppearance, now-a-days, with the squads of men digging and excavating, and teams hauling the dirt away. Third street will pre sent a more inviting appearance when their work is accomplished. Qcick Time.— We got a Dubuque paper last evening of Aug. 14, only thirteen days on the way. We suppose it had been up to Pembina. The new jail building already assumes fine proportions, and gives promise of being a safe home lor the homeless in time to come. The new Cathedral also is hurrying upward with as much speed as is compatible with the durability and care it is being erected with. Other splendid stone buildings in all parts of town are being rapidly finished. The Levee was well thronged yesterday afternoon, and the shore well lined with boats. A multitude of drays, carts and wag ons were busy in hauling away goods. Terrific Stroke of Lightning.—Du ring the storm on Wednesday night, the lightning struck a large oak tree in the yard of C. C. Collins, near Trout Brook, and shiv ered it in pieces. Fragments about the size of a gas pipe were hurled a hundred yards ! One large piece of bark flew through the window of Mr. Collins’ bed room, shivering the sash, and covering the bed whereon he and Mrs. C. were sleeping, wiih fragments of glass and bark. Such a display of the power and force of lightning is seldom wit nessed. The comer of Wabashaw and Fifth street is again the site of a small circus. The ad vent of one of those institutions into a place cannot be regarded as lucky. They are nei ther instructive or entertaining. Who ever came away from a Circus tent after witnes sing the tricks of some horses, or hearing the vulgarisms of a clown, benefilted by it? We can say but little for the taste of one who would frequent a circus to admire the an tics of its perf rmers, when they could lis ten to a good play which would finish ration al amusement, instruction, and moral.— There are many better ways of spending mo ney than patronizin g an itinerant show. Hunting Parties are all the go. Wild Pigeons are still are still a great attraction to those who handle a shot guu well. Fish iug parties are also numerous, and nearly all come back well supplied with trophies of their skill or luck. At Cincinnati potatoes are selling at 25 eta. per bushel, and in Cleveland for 20 cents. At Winona new potatoes are selling for 50 cents per bushel. Here they are asking one dollar. We know of no reason why they should be so high, as the crop is large, and bids fair to be first rate. Can any one tell what is the matter with oar St Paul mail. Frequently, the daily pa pers do not come for two or three days and then come “all in a heap,” after they aro too old to be of use. How is this ? Mr. P. M. at St. Paul, why don’t they come regularly?— Free Press. Dear neighbor, why does the Free Press take seven days in coming from your city down here ? “M r. P. M. at" St Peter, ‘ why dou’t they come” quicker? Shall vt have it?—A petition was presented to the City Council yesterday af ternoou praying that body to procure two fire engines and hose carriage for the use of the city. The Council passed a resolution to do so, provided they could be purchased on the credit of the city. A Storm rattled overhead on Wednesday night, and soaked the ground with a heavy rain, which laid the dust and cooled the air.— But yesterday, thc sun shone almost as warm as ever. A few years ago, the ladies wore a very handy sort of hood, which was called “Kiss uie-if-you-dare” hood. The present style of benefit has a “Kiss-me-if-you-want-to” look. A scarcity of room is experienced now. It is next to impossible to procure good hous es to rent, in the city, and only at exorbi tant prices. Notwithstanding the great amount of building done this season, there is still a lamentable and deplorable deficiency in the supply of dwelling houses. The merest shanties demand SB, $lO or sl2 per month, without water or other conveniences Such a state of things retards the growth and prosperity of our city, greatiy. The Drama seems to be on the decline in St. Paul. Scott’s Theatre, it is said, has gone by the board—cause, want of support. The theatres that have been here this sea son, have no cause to complain, however.- In the main, they have been well patronized, much better than would have been anticipat ed it been known at the beginning of the season that three theatres and two circusses would hold forth here. The St. Paul peo ple have spent quite enough in poor places of amusement, and poor playing. Let us now have something genuine, permanent, and everyway worthy of the place. The PHOENIX, on Third street, is a more popular place than the po3t-office.— Hall, mine host, knows how to please the epicures, and always something nice. Th< se who don’t know him ought to call in and see if it ain’t so. He is the ne pins ultra of restauranteurs. Mionf.sota Central University. —The laying of the corner stone of this institution will take place at Hastings, on Wednesday, the 2d day of September, at II o’clock, A. M. This will be an excellent opportunity for our citizens to visit Hastings, and partici pate in a “good time.” Most of tiie distin guished men of the Territory have engaged to be present and take part in the services. Late Papers. —We arc indebted to Os car Kino, Esq., for the latest New York dates. Mr. K. arrived home yesterday, by the Itasca. Yesterday was a windy and dusty day. Ileal estate was rising iu quantities. It was in everybody’s eyes and mouth, and whit ened the blackest broadcloath. It was al most unpleasant to be around, and we cer tainly swallowed a lar.-e proportion of our allotted peck while on our wanderings. R. G. Sharpe’s Nf.w Hardware Store. —This gentlemen who suffered so* heavily from thp lire on Roberts street a few nights since, is now located in Jackson street be tween sth and Cth. Mr. Sharpe will be found on Land, as usual, with a good stock of goods and his friends will find him ready to supply them. A pi’rse was found on the street yester day, which the owner can hear of by calling at this cilice. The ditch for the gas pipes was com menced along Third street yesterday morn ing. We hope it will be speedily and expe ditiously put through. Seventh street, from the Fuller House, eastward, is being graded. Why can’t it be improved between Jackson and Wabashaw streets ? It certainly needs it there. A lively runaway took place down Jack son street ye terday. Result, a broken wag- Businesj was pretty brisk yesterday, and things seemed lively about town, still we found the itein ma- ket depressed. A Manly Politician. Hon. Edward Stanly, Republican candidate for Governor of California, has written a let ter defining his position. He says: “When in Congress, as well as in the Leg-- islature of my well-beloved native State, my opinions*weie not concealed from my constit uents. Though in common with all Southern men,.l condemned the attempts of Abolition ists to interfere with the rights of the South ern States, I never hesitated to say in public speeches, as in private, that slavery was an evil; I never was guilty of the folly of deny ing what seven Presidents—beginning with the Father of his Country and coming down to the time of Polk—had admitted that Con gress had the power to prohibit the extension of slavery to free Territory. By these declarations opposition was stimulated, and sometimes unmeasured denunciation followed. But upon appealing to Caesar from the politicians, to patriotic Whigs and Democrats, to the people, I was triumphantly sustained. When I advocated the right of the people of California to enter the Union as a free State, I was threatened with the loss of the confidence of my constit uents; but against furious opposition I was sustained. * * * California has suffered by adherence to party discipline. The question has not been, what is best for her honor and welfare, but who shall take this office, or who will buy that ? The Moloch of party has greatly oppressed her people, and almost de stroyed her prosperity. She will never at tain that rank among her sister States to which she is entitled until her people, forget ting what is past, shall unite in the common purpose of emancipating her from the slave ry of mind, from the despotism of party spir it. We are in a new and commanding posi tion before the world. We have a State un- I like any other in our Uniou—her laws not ! settled, her finances disordered, her credit impaired ; defalcations commou and numer ous; with a population of citizens, by birth or choice, generally strangers to each oth >r, and too much engrossed by their own affairs to pay much attention to public interests. — Our State demands duties of higher charac ter than those we owe to party.

The Approach true Telegraphic Connec tion between the 014 and New Worlds. We present our readers to-day with one of the most interesting chapters in the history of scientific progress which it has fallen to the lot of any writer to trace. On the eve of th«- consummation of the grandest work which has ever beeu att nip ted by the genius and enterprise of man, we have thought it a fit ting occasion to collect together all the facts connected with the first application of elec tricity to the telegraph, and to carry down the record to the latest accounts of the progress of this magnificent project. It will be seen from this that within the last dozen science has, iu the perfection of the telegraph system, done more to advance the interests of humanity than during any whole century of its labors. Even the success of steam navi gation yales into insignificance before the ad vantages resulting from the intercommuniea tion of ideas between nations to which the ocean telegraph' is destined to produce.— What commerce has hitherto effected, by slow degrees, this new auxiliary will accom plish with the swiftness almost of thought its elf. To enable the mind to grasp the marvel lous changes which it will bring about, w<* have given not only thc past history of the European and American telegraphs, but also a statement of all the proposed connections, A’rican and Asiatic, which at no very distant day will complete the chain of electric com munication round the globe. It would appear from the calculations that we have made, that of overland and subma rine telegraphs there are completed and in progress of construction at the present time— Urcted States, [overland] 83,000 miles. South America, [overland] 1,509 “ Europe, [overland] 37,900 “ India, [overland] 6,000 “ Submarine, [Europe and America,] 950 “ This aggregate will be increased 1,700 miles by the completion of the Atlantic tele graph. * Of the European and Indian tele graphs not more than from six to seven thou sand miles of the lines commenced are unfin ished, and the next six months will probably : see them all in operation. In tbe estimate of the American telegraphs j above given, none but the lines actually com- I pleted are included. The nine hundred and ; fifty miles of submarine lines are also finished, i This statement will enable us to form some j idea of the immediate as well as prospective j results to which the successful completion of; the Atlantic telegraph will lead. .Within a fortnight from the present time, j leaving out of the calculation the Indian and ■ European lines which are unfinished, tve may j anticipate that the cable which is now being laid from Europe to Newfoundland will place in connection nearly eight thousand miles of | telegraph. By means of the submarine cables ' across the British channel we will then be able . to communicate with almost every capital in | Europe, and, if necessary, even with the Cri- j mea. The inhabitants of St. Petersburgh and Moscow, as well as those of the Southern capitals of the European continent, will, in their turn, be enabled to transmit messages to all the principal cities of British North Amer ica and the United Buites as far South as the Gulf af Mexico. These are the immedi- ; ate results on which we may reckon. But casting our eye over the lines in con struction, or which are projected with a rea sonable prospect of execution, the mind loses itself in the contemplation of the vast revolu tions to which they must lead in the politi cal and commercial relations of tbe world.— Let us first, however, examine what those lines are. First, there is the continuation of the submarine line from Sardinia to Bona, a distance of only 125 miles, which will place Southern Europe in connection with the | Northwestern coast of Africa. Next, are two I companies organized for the construction of, lines connecting India with England by tele graph, both taking their point of departure from Alexandria, and connecting with the In dian lines at Kurrachee. One of these, the Red Sea line, has received valuable conces- ‘ sions, and although the Euphrates Valley route has obtained no privilege from the Porte as yet, London capitalists appear to be equal ly sanguine in favor of that project. A third j scheme proposes to connect Australia with | India by telegraph, by way of Penang, Sing- ; ' apore, Batavia and King George’s Sound.— j Thus the three other great divisions of the globe will be placed in direct telegraphic com munication with our own, provided the ex periment now being made on tbe bed of the ] ! Atlantic be successfully carried out. It is impossible to speculate with anything ! like calmness or certainty 'on the results of 1 the realization of these magnificent schemes. : That they will have an important influence on ■ the happiness and prosperity of the nations drawn together in this close connection there can be no doubt. As rapidity of communi cation always tends to promote the activity of trade it follows that commerce generally must be largely benefitted by it both in the | multiplication and greater certainly of its op ; erations. The spirit of speculation will, how ever, receive a check in the curtailment of the intervals of-time clasping between the ! arrivals of the foreign steamers, and the reck less and imprudent will not in future have such a wide imprudent will notin future have their passion for gambling. One of the great | est benefits, however, which will be driven j from the ocean telegraph will be the influ ence which it will exercise over the grain mar kets of the world. Rapid and certain infor mation concerning the condition of the crops, the yield of the harvests, and the ruling pri ces of breadstuffs, cannot fail to control hol ders and to keep down prices generally.— Were it attended w ith no other result than this, it would be worth all the expenditure of scientific labor and money which it has cost. On the political relations of the world we believe that these improved facilities of com munication will exercise a still happier effect. If misunderstandings between governments are frequently caused by the difficulty of promptly interchanging their views, it is ob vious that whatever tends to remove that ob stacle and to faciliate a more frequent ex change of sentiments between statesmen will diminish the danger of national differences. llow much, for instance, of the irritation aud resentment caused by the bluqders of >lr. I'rampton on the enlistment question might have been avoided had the Atlantic tclegiaph been in operation ! There is another interest, however, which will be more largely ratified by it than any to which we have referred, and that is the nu merous class of gossips at both sides of the Atlantic, to whom a newspaper is an almost hourly necessity, and who live upon the ex citement created for them by the steamer or telegraph. We can picture to ourselves the all absorbing eagerness with which these, our most valued patrons, will look inourcolumns for the first operations of the new line—the price of cansols on the London Exchange—a speech of Lord Palmerston in the House, ap pealing for American sympathy on the Indian revolt —or a success of the American horse Pryor—all occurrences of the previous day. In return we may be enabled to forward the London gobe-monches an account of another Burdell baby farce—the positively last decis ion in the Devlin and Conover case—or the news of a fresh fillibustering expedition by Walker. We have only attempted to shadow out faintly the multiplication of interests that will be benefitted by the success of this mag nificent enterprise. That all the benefits an ticipated will immediately flow from it would be too much to expect. The rate at which messages will be transmitted —is too high for many to be able to profit by it at first.— When, however, it is satis actorilv demonstra ted that reduced rates will pay larger profits —the company will not be slow to extend the circle of their customers, even though this will necessitate the construction of ad ditional cables. Until then let us be thank ful for the important advantages which we shall derive through their efforts. GRAND SUMMARY OF RESULTS. The first fact that presents itself, in con sidering the effects which must result from the success of the great submarine enter prise, is the annihilation of both space and time between the Old and New Worlds.— One of the principal objections urged against its practicability was the difficulty in procu ring a battery sufficiently strong to transmit a pulsation across the Atlantic through a I ; i i ; I ; I i ; : 1 i 1 j. simple conductor. It has, however, been pro ved that it not ouly could be done, but that a strong electric enrrent coaid transmit a dot or character a distance of two thouaand miles in half a second. The statement of a lew facts will show the wonderful effects which will be produced by the successful laying of this cable. The London Exchange closes at three o’clock, and as the difference in time between that city and New York <s four hours and forty-five minutes, we wil; receive the report of the price of consols n eleven o’clock in the morning, in time for ou> operators in Wall street. The movement in the London and New York money mar kets will therefore appear in the evening edi tions of the New York Herald on the same day on which they may take place. The British Parliament may sometimes sit as late >s one o’clock, and their sessions are occa sionally prolonged till two in the morning, but the result of their deliberations will reach us about ten o'clock of the preceding even ing, in time enough to be published full \ in the Herald of the next day, simultaneous ly with the report in the London Times.— Then, again, our great mercantile firms can send their orders through it to different parts of Europe and countermand them with the same rapidity should they find it to their in terest to do so. It is hardly possible to cal culate the effect of this stupendous underta king, and when accomplished there cannot be a doubt of its success in a pecuniary point of view. When it is considered that it wmII be connected with the various laud lines on both sides of the Atlantic, now extending thirty-eight thousand miles in Europe and thirty-three thousand in the Unite State-, and soon to be connected with lines stretching to Africa, Asia and Australia, its immense value will be seen and its won derful results fully appreciated. With the Atlantic line-in operation we may safely pre dict that in five or ten years the daily occur rences in Asia, Europe, Africa and Australia will be published in the Herald with the same regularity that news from Washington and New Orleans now appears in our col umns. such is the opinion of ourselves and of those who have had long experience in telegraphing, and who predict that in a few years two submarine cables will be required instead of one to perform the business offer ed for transmission between the Old aud New Worlds. En avant. 75.850 “ A National Thanksgiving. We heartily-second the suggestion contain ed in the following article, from the St. Louis Intelligencer : A real millenium seems to be extending over the United States. To the boon of al most unexampled good crops, enjoyed from the Northern Likes to the Southern Gulf, and from the Atlantic to the prairies of the Kaw and thc Great Flatte, and promising to enrich labor wherever it has applied its stur dy hand to the plow, we are permitted by a kind Providence, to add the priceless bless ing of general health. Men are not only furnished with plentiful harveste and well stored larders; but they are also blessed with that abundant health which permits the full enjoyment of the bounties of nature. Nowhere in the United States, has there prevailed, this year, any serious epidemic. Cholera, yellow fevers, typhoids, and all the host of desolating diseases that have scatter ed woe in their path during the season passed, seem to have been banished, this year, from the land. The weeds of mourning, that used to lend their sombre hue to every section of the Union, and are now bleached of their blackness; and the colors of emerald and brown—of the green grass aud of the ripen ing sheaves—take their place ; and evoke the jocund pleasures of a flashed and happy life. Never have we had such general national health. Never have we had such uniform good crops. Never have we had such good prices of products. Never have we had such amount of precious metals in our coun try—the basis of all sound commerce. In fine, never be ore has the nation seemed more peaceful, happy and prosperous. It well be comes us to have one general Thauksgiving Day, simultaneous throughout the Union, to acknowledge those accumulated and mani fold blessings. Why should not President Buchanan appoint this year, by common coiv seat, a national Thanksgiving Day ? It would be a happy innovation—and would be universally acquiesced in by the States, we are sure. Sam Sned in Kentucky—Pleads that He Yesterday a suit was trie 1 in the Circuit Court of Campbell County, Kentucky, Judge Moore presiding, brought by Shipley & Brothers, engravers, for seals engraved for the Know Nothing Grand Council of Ken tucky, and other Councils in the State. The action was against A. D. Smalley and Maj. Caldwell, who were the agents of the Coun cil. Ira Root and R. M. Webster appeared for the plaintiffs, and John W. Stephenson (re cently elected Democratic member of Con gress,) for the know nothings. A large amonnt of correspondence between the litigants was read, all very affectionate, commencing “Dear Brother, 5 ’ and ending— “ Yours Fraternally.’ 5 Mr. Stevenson, counsel for the Kuow Noth ings, contended that, as Sain was dead, the suit should be brought against the adminis tration of Sam’s estate, and nothing against the agents. The Court however, overruled this, and gave judgement against the defendants for $350 with interest, making $302 50.— Cin. Gaz. Plowing by Steam. This is an importaht subject to farmers, and in claiming considerable attention in the United States. We notice that in the vicin- ] ity of Chelmsford, England, a successful ex periment of the kind was made a few weeks since, in the presence of a large numlier of persons engaged to agriculture. The Chroni cle, of that place, says : The field selected was a piece of twenty three acres, called the Mill Field, near the White Heart Inn. The first start was with two double plows, but as it was exceedingly heavy soil, usually plowed with three or four horses, very foul, and,from being lately drain- i ed, not lying well.it was difficult for the engine j before to pass over it,and,after a pause,four sin- i gle plows were attached,and although at first j from not being able to get the going gear to j work favorablv,some little delays were caused, j after a time they did their work admirably j following from six to nineinches deep. The work was wonderfully straight, though done in the midst of a large concourse of specta tors who were evidently deeply interested in the experiment. So clung and tough—so close and heavy was the nature of the soil, that, in answer to inquiries made as to how the matter was going on. the observation of those who knew the locallity was : “Well, if it can plow now, it can anything.” Many fanners who entered the field prejudiced were unreluctant in their praise, and acknowledged that the wonderful machiue, being still in its infancy, would, as improvements followed, ef fect an extraordinary change in the Cultiva tion and management of land of every des cription. The Florida Indians. From the Savannah Georgian, we clip the following : “The Indians are few in number, perhaps two hundred; of these fifty are warriors, the rest women and children. All are half-star ved, and the warriors are very poorly sup plied with arms and araimm'tion. It would be folly for them to come to a pitched battle with the United States troops under these circumstances, or even to make anything like anything like an effectual attae •. They lie concealed in the hammocks, stealthily procu ring food from patches of potatoes, pumpkins, corn and beans, and from the streams that abound in fish, and when the hammock is approached by scouts they at once plunge into the glades, which are covered with saw grass higher than their heads and filled with water and mud from knee to waist deep; and it is only by pursuing their trail through this morass of "saw-grass, mnd, and water that any of them are ever taken. Most of the prisoners vet taken are old gray-headed men, and women, and children. Is Dead. yard Taylor** Skeccht* of NoiaMo Literal!. From a letter of Bayard Taylor to the N. Y. Tribune, dated London. July Ist, we ex tract the following sketches of notable liter »ry men: KINGLAKE AND LAYARD. At a dinner party the other day, I met vith Layard, and Kinglake, the author of “Eothen.” The latter is a small, pale man, with blonde hair and moustache, and bluish •trey eyes His manner is quiet and subdued ind only a few would guess his concealed ca lacity for enthusiastic feeling and courageous iction. He has just entered Parliament and broke down the other day, in his first speech —but it is a failure which only stimulates uis friends to believe more firmly in his future success. He is now writing a History of the Crimean war, all of which he saw, sharing its dangers with the 6ame steady nerve which he opposed to the infection of the Plague, in Cairo. Layard is a man of Prty, with a frank, open, energetic face, clear grey eyes, and hair prematurely grey about the temples. He has ju?t astonished the world by some very remarkable researches, which he has been making in Italy the past two years. Taking Vasari as his guide, he set off upon the hunt of the lost frescoes of Glotte and other painters of thePre-Raphael ite period, and now brings back seven hun drecl tracings of works, the existence of which has been hitherto unknown. Some of these will shortly be published by the Arundel Society. CHARLES DICKENS. Last night I heard Charles Dickens read his “Christinas Carol'' in St Martin’s Hall, to an audience so crowded and enthusiastic a to surprise the London reporters, though its equal in both these respects is a very com mon sight in America. His reading of the dialogue was wonderfully fine; in the narra tive parts it had a smack of the stage, and a tendency to shrillness at the end of every phrase, which had a curious effect. Alto gether, it was a complete success, and will be repeated for the same charitable object— the benefit of Douglas Jerrold’s widow.— Dickens is now in his forty-ninth year, and Time is beginning to tell upon his exuberant locks, but his eye has all its keenness and sparkle. “Little Dorrit,” though acknowl edged on all sides to be a great falling off from his previous stories, has “had a more exten sive sale than anything he has written— which proves the truth of a sayiug of Old Sam Rodgers—that there is only one thing harder for a man to do than to write himself down, aud that is, to write himself up. TfiAPIfERAY. Thackeray, the noblest Roman of them all, has been falsifying the charges of the ram pautly loyal Canadian papers, by giving his lectures on the Pour Georges in all parts of the United Kingdom, and with the most gratifying success. It is cheering to see a man of his independence and honesty re wardad by a sound and steady increase of popular respect and appreciation. Ilis next novel, I venture to say, will liave at the out set a much larger circle of readers than his last. I have seen a few of the illustrations for it, which he intends making with his own hand, as in the case of “The Newcome but of the subject and character of the work you must wait until the first number appears. TENNISON I spent two fortunate days last week at Freshwater, on the Isle of Wight, the resi dence of Tennison. In the scenery round about the poet’s residence, I recognized many lines of “Maud.” He lives in a charming spot, looking out on one side over the edges of the chalk cliffs, to “ the liquid azure bloom of a crescent of sea, The silent gaphire-sptngled marriage ring of the land,” and on ’he other, across the blue channel of the Soient to the far off wave line of the New Forest, on the northern horizon. Nev er shall I forget those golden hours, spent wth the noble poet and noble mau, on the rolling windy downs above the seai and uu der the shade of his own ilex and elm. LEIGH HUNT. Buchanan Read, who has just come hither from Rome to fulfil some punter’s engage ments, took me the other evening to visit Leigh Hunt—the sole surviving star of the constellation which dawned upon the litera ture of England with the present century.— The old poet lives in a neat little cottage in Hammersmith, quite a one, since the recent death of his wife. I hat dainty grace which is the chief charm of his poetry, yet lives in his pet son and manners. He is seventy-three years old, but the effects of age are only phy sical ; they have not touched that buoyant, joyous nature, which survives in spite of sor row i.nd misfortune. His deep set eyes still beam with a soft, cheerful, earnest light, his \ nice is gentle and musical, and his hair, al though almost silver white, falls in fine, silky locks on both sides of his face. It was grate ful to me to press the same palm, which Keats and Shelley had so often clasped in friendly warmth, and to hear him, who knew them so well, speak of them as long lost companions. He has a curious collection of locks of the hair of p cts, from Milton to Browning. The thin tuft of brown, silky fi bres, could it really have been shorn from Milton’s he d ? -I asked myself. “ Touch it,” said Leigh Hunt, “and then you will have touched Milton’s self.” tl There is a life in hair though it be dead,” said I, as I did so, repeating a line from Hunt’s own sonnet on this lock. Shelley’s hair was golden and ve ry soft; Keat’s a bright brown, curling in I large Bacchic rings; Dr. Johnson’s, gray, : with a harsh and wiry feel ; Dean Swift’s ! both brown and pray, but finer, denoting a more sensitive organization; and Charles Lamb’s reddish brown, short and strong. I was delighted to hear Hunt speak of poems which he still designed to write, as if the age ! of verse should n„*ver cease with one in whom the faculty is born. A Night is St. Louis. —The St. Louis muuquitoes are said to be remarkably large and healthy. A “Sucker” from the swamps of Illinois gives bis experience and opinion of them and St. Louis. Thus he scolds : “Nature’s sweet restorer—balmy sleep.’’— ; I’d say “balmy sleep,” and “restorer.” .Let me tell you bow balmy sleep is enjoyed in St. Louis. You sit down after supper to read ; musquitns cover your face and bands; you whack both—throw down your paper and try to write—a dozen will mount your pen handle, and your letters will be Greek— you go to the theatre, and are bored all the way there and back—you strip yourself of all coverin':, and became a model artist, tuck your “bar” and jilmp in—it is intensely hot —you gasp for breath—and the room is filled with the “wry-neckcd fife and spirit-stirring drum”—the base and treble of the enemy’s voices as they surround your ca-tle, fill your ears—you pet in a doze—stick your foot through the bar—legions attack it—you dream you have your foot crushed under a locomotive—you prepare f-r amputation— you wake—your fiiot is swoolen and smart ing as if rubbed with nettles—in an agony you tear your hair—your tormentors drift in like the French into the Malakoff—your feet strike the floor, and your nude state gives the enemy a chance to attack you in front and flank—yon Btrike your own person until the spanks can be heard in the next room—you gather up the rent and tie a string round the hole—get in again with aboutsfitty that com mence playing in—you arc jaded and tired, and submit—you have a crazy sleep, and pray for day—two hundred musquetoes re tired from business with their red bottle ends, are hanging about the inside of the bar, you gather the bar in and squeeze them— the bar looks as if hogs had been butchered | in it—there’s your blood shed on American | soil—the moment daylight comes, myriads I of flies hum and buzz, and tickh and bite— | you are pale and weak, and sigh for a place 1 0l rest. Such is sweet sleep in St. Louis. In j j’our desperation, you madly rush to the bar and call, for a cocktail. Upon the reading of the Declaration of In dependence at Syracuse, New York, by a citizen of that place, a gentleman from the rural districts made this comment: “Oh, he read it well enough, but I’m darned if I be lieve he ever wrote it.” Winter Wheat In We have long been of the opinion that Minnesota was destined to be one of the fleetest wheat growing countries in the west. he experience of the present, together with that ol the past two seasons, demonstrate* the fact to a certainty. We have lately been presented with a specimen of winter wheat by Geo. Hezlep, Esq., which was raised in the Big timber, some eight miles east of this place, and which we do not believe can be excelled anywhere. The heads are large, and exceedingly heavy. The reason why this must be a good wheat growing state, are obvious. In the first place, we have a lime-stone formation of soil, and then then the snow falls early , and, lies steadily all winter. There is no thawing and freezing, no naked exposure to the cold win Is or frosts of winter or spring, as is too often the case in Wisconsin and Illinois. The snow frequently falls before the ground is frozen at all, and protects it perfectly ; so that in many instances the open ground is not frozen at all during the winter. We have found this to be the case in several localities, even during the two past unusually severe winters. Since writing the above, we have seen our old friend, Mr. Sanborn, of Ottawa, who in forms us that a ‘field which he has will yield at least forty htuthels to the acre. No wonder that the farmers of New England should de sire to change their sterile lands at the rate of S'O to §75 per acre, for land like this at §1,25 ! And then, too, our eastern friends should bear in mind, that this is done with half the labor expended on a crop there.— There is no manuring, no summer fallowing— simply to plow, sow, and reap, and even that, is mostly done by machinery, which cannot be on their stony flats, and steep hillsides. Such facts as these, are knock-down argu ments, which tho eastern press, with all its fine-spun logic of “special manures” and oth er clap-trap operations, finds it difficult to com? at.— St. Peter Free Press. The Revolt In India. But this revolt is a great fact, and omin- j ous to the English Eastern Empire. It is ; obviously so regarded in England- The | gradual sinking of the funds may be in part attributed to the certainty of great expense being incurred and the debt being increased; I but the tone of the debates in Parliameut . clearly shows that thinking men see before them an uncertain and gloomy picture. As the philosopher of old was startled fro :i his carelessscepticism by thunder under an azure sky, the British‘statesman—in a season of! unbounded confidence and triumph—is sud- j denly awakened by the crumbling iu a day ; of the splendid fabric of his colonial empire. He was pleasantly dreaming of annexing i China; he is aroused by the eminent danger of losing India. Herat evacuated—Persia easily aud rapidly humbled—Russia interfer ence removed—Scmile conquered—Oude an nexed—in this hour of universal success, a deep-laid and well-spread conspiracy covered with its qet work the old and tranquil prov inces of the empire, and turned into fanatical hostility the long-traiued and obedient ar mies by which these conquests were effected. | Disraeli, whose acute aud penetrating mind seems to find its appropriate development in the department of foreign affairs, and whose position as leader of the opposition affords him access to accurate information, gives us a remarkable exhibition of tho characteris tic njeans by which the signals of rebellion were spread among the Hindoos. Cakes of mystical meaning were scattered among the innumerable villages ; and lotus flowers having a mysterious signification, were circu lated among the Sepoy soldiery. English minds cannot yet perceive the significance of these symbols, but their effects were not those imputed to the “mind eyed,” melan choly lotus-eaters of Alfred Tennyson. In reading the letters of Englishmen who escaped from Delhi, Merut, ami other seats of 1 the revolt, nothing is more fearful than the sudden and utter disappearance of every means of power or even rescue. The rising was universal. Every native of every rank was a rebel and an enemy. Where the sun ' rose upon order, and discipline, and official gradations of ranks, and obedient soldiery and artillery aud fortresses, evening saw the whole fabric of society dissolved, and a few trembling survivors of the governing class llymg, in hopeless panic, in disguise and through by-ways, to some distant English station. Euglan 1 may put down this rebellion, or, j if it be temporarily successful, may and prob- j ably will conquer Ilindoostan. The English , power is immense, and will be exerted to the utmost in the contest. But a permanent es tablishment of the English government, fix ing its roots in the country and bccomiug naturalized with the soil appears to us im possible. For a hundred years the English . have possessed lud a—and how ? They have , been encamped in the country, an isolated , military caste, alien lrom the population, ; gaining no accession in numbers, governing by the sword. The effect on England of the loss of India j has been discussed on both sides of the At- j lantic. Mr. Roebuck, in a debate in Parlia ment, said. “If we lose India, we lose the world and some writers anticipate that with the loss of this magnificent appendage, England will sink to the condition of Spain, or even of Portugal. These are not our views. The British isles—with their abund ant population; their healthful climate; their scientific agriculture ; their mines of iron and coal ; their boundless manufactur ing resources ; their stormy seas, the nurser ies of hardy seamen ; their vigorous national character; their regulated liberty; their science, arts and literature—would still be a leading power among nations, if Asia were torn from their grasp. But the loss would be great. The gran deur of the British monarchy would begone. India has been the glory of the English an -1 nals, for history has recorded no achievement i parallel to that which brought the natives of ; a cold Atlantic island, near the Arctic circle, ' to be conquerors ami “ kings under the tropic ;of Cancer.” It has been a source of her won derful opulence, the outlet of her li’ry spirit, the school of instruction of her statesmen, the nursery of her generals. It has, perhaps more than anything else, kept alive the heroic element in the national character, by opening a b-uind'ess field to enterprise and daring.— | JV. Y. Post, 15 th. A Warning to Young Ladiks.— The Jesse W. Goodrich of Worcester, whose will is being contested on the ground of insanity, published the following advertisement in the New York Water-Cure Journal, in 1854 : “The subscriber is a bachelor, a college graduate, a teetotler from boyhood, a lawyer by profession ; was for ten years a temprance editor ; uses no tea or coffee, opium, alcohol, profanity, tobacco, leeks or onions, is indus trious, affectionate, philanthropic, sound, do mestic and moral in all his habits, is not a ‘church member,’ but deems the bible a pre cious boon from beuven ; admires, teetotal, moral, devotional, mental, affectional and physical beauty in woman ; his vital temper ament; size of head, and the groups of so cial, moral and intellectual organs each marked ‘6,’ or large, by O. S.

A Congexi. l Candidate.” Messrs. Fowler & Wells endorsed the ad vertisement, and the consequence was that a hundred and twenty-seven unmarried la dies corresponded with Mr. Goodrich, and their letters and daguerreotypes are now matters of amusement to the Worcester peo ple.

The following Banks hare recently been discredited: Warwick Bank, Rhode Island. American Bank, Trenton, New Jersey. City Bank, Cincinnati, Ohio. City Bank, Sandusky Ohio. From Hunt’s Merchant's Magazine we quote the follow ing cheerful article: “Almost simultaneously with the discovery that the comet was giving us the slip came the conviction that the disastrous commercial revolution which many had pre dicted would also be postponed. These two great causes of alarm are removed, and the world may breathe more freely durlug the dog-days. Seriously the panic-makerr are listened to far too much for the peace of the country. If they were gifted with the spirit of iiiKpiration tAeir prophecies might be valuable; but under the circumstan ces their utterances are mere croakings, as destitute of importance as the death watch or other Insect voices which alarm the superstitious vulgar. During the whole of the Spring the weather furnished an exhaustless text for evil forbodlngs. It was too wet or too dry, and so cold th*t the stinted vegetation would never recove.— Now, as we write, how laughingly the fields give the lie to these predictions! Grass which is probably the most valuable crop pro duced In this country Is abundant In almost every State. Wheat is decidedly good, and the crop is above the aver age In every S' Ctionof the Country. Indian Corn, Rye, Potatoes and fruits of all kinds have l>een or promise to be very abundant. The Sugar crop of Texas has been injured by the drouth, but Louisiana the cane Is doing well, and the prospect of a large yield Is daily widening. Tobacco has been Injured to some extent, but appearan ces are once more iu fayofuf the planter. We recapitulate those facts, not simply to awaken a general thankfulness for the abundance promised as a reward for agricultural Industry, but to vindicate the hopeful spirit which has haracterized this ruview st fhe time that many of our cotenmorarle* could see nothing but impending disasters and troubles thickening around us, and to rebuke those, whose vocation It appears to be to excite alarm and distrust. Money has continued scarce throughout all parts of the interior, and the tendency of the current has been towarks New York, whence the demand has been a< tive for Europe. But thus far there has been no distress and the st-lngency has only produced a wholesome effect In checking undue speculation,” D. 11. Farlin t Co.’s excellent Chicago Bank Note Re porter says ; "In this market bankers are discounting lightly, as the regular rates, 10 per cent. Outside, the supply of first cla-s paper is small, and readily taken at 2 to IV per cent, p-r month. Second grade is more plenty at iX to 8 per cent. Currency continues easy. Gold and Eastern in good demand. Exchange Is still scarce, and in large demand at ad vanced rates. This week It is somewhat easier, but with no indldation of any permanent Improvement in supply The New York Times of the 21st says: “The Mt n cy Market to.day was quite active with the Discount Brokers on time negotiations, while the demand from the Stock Brokers was comparatively moderate.— Dearer rates obtain hy X and 1 per cent, and first class paper than last week, and the applications at Bank are generally pretty full. But there is no feeling of distrust in financial circles outside the Stock Exchange, and the Bank movement, though necessari y cau.lou-, while the export demand for Gold continues active, is confident and wholly free from excitement or pressure. The differ ence from last season is tint the managers hare more capital of thefr own, and fewer heavy balances of the country banks to employ, and this will be found no ineau advantage In moving the crops tills Fall.” The Boston Post says: “Money is rather dnll at 9 per cent. In the street for the few favorable names that are called “first class.”— Nothing is done below 9, but some of the commissioners are refusing to pay that price at their counting-houses. We should quote 10 to 12 per cent, as the current rate for money in State Street, If we were obliged to give a statement In a single sentence. The banks are doing a good deal, at the rates given in our last. New York funds have recently been less abundant.” California. There is still a liberal supply of gold from California, and there is no likelihood of its di minution. The soil and the rocks are still filled with the precious metal, aud it only needs human labor, judiciously employed, to procure it. But with all its natural wealth, there is scarcely a State in the Union more depressed than California. The flush days are passed, an l speculation is at a d s- Count. The reaction is serious and nlniost destructive. There have been more failures in that Stale than in any other community i of the same population in the Union. Thou sands who had left the old States to estab lish themselves there, have returned to their former homes, a little richer in experience ami wisdom, but much pxirer in pocket. It will surprise ail to learn that, during the first six months of this year, the total net gain to the population cf California by immi gration was only 4.295, and of these, more that one half were Chinese, who are regarded as anything but a useful class of population, apd not at calculated to promote the in terests of the State. Thus it will be seen that the net gain of pcoplo of European rece, during six months, was only about two ! thousand persons—men, women and chil dren. Commerce lias fallen off in like man i ner. The tonnage arrived from home Allan i tic ports during the first and second quar -1 ters of this year was 57,588 tons, againßt 79,128 tons iii 1856, and 78,194 tons in 1855, The tonnage from foreign ports during the same period, was 49,706 tons in 1857, against 64,877 tons in 1850. '1 he arrivals of tonnage Coa-twise, during the first half of 1857, were 79,776i10ns against 65.181 tons in 1856. The total tonnage arrived from all quarters during the six months closed, was 209.540 tons, against 223,482 tons in 1856. The de ’ crease hns been, as appears above, iu the trade with home, Eastern and foreign ports. Yet greatly as the commerce, of the chief port of California has fallen off’, it has been far in excess of the wants of the State. The markets are completely overstocked with goods of all kinds, and the news of moio cargoes shipped from eastern ports is received as something calamitious. Eastern specu and shippers, by continuing to send goods of all kinds to an over supplied market, arecon : tributing to the general distress there, and j sinking money themselves. The persistence ! with which they have pursued this course is surprising, for evils of this kind generally remedy themselves promptly. But the Cal ifornia markets have been overstocked for years, and eastern shippers, not profiling by the sad experience of the past, are still send-’ ing thither large supplies of goods of every description. The remedy must come eventu ally, and it cannot be far off now.— Philadel phia Bidbtine.
