Mr. Titromb, if the Mi iIlmUm I'pis ropal Church, has nr.dt ital.r n u. raise, by Mibscription, a Mini Millicient in build a Church, ami now hold a snhsriipt.nn Im for that purpose We hope the r.'itiims of Kosciusko and vicinity will not wait to be ailed upon, but that they will come tor ward promptly and subscribe liberally. At this time there is not a Church edifice to be .-.t'Pii in Kosciusko. This certainly does not speak well iVr our town, and ashamed are we to own it; but now that it is propo sed to build one, w e feel confident that our citizens will second the eH'oris now being made, and exert themselves to wipe out ihe stain which lias so lon been permitted to cast opprobrium upon the place, by hold in" it up to the ridicule and scorn of pas sers bye, as well as of the neighboring country and towns. Moit assuredly, a handsome Church is of no disadvantage to any one, but of great advantage to the community. In fact most people nowadays judge (and very correctly too) of the mor als and society of a community by the number and architecture of their Church es and School-bouses. Knowing these to be stubborn lacts. then, arouse your selves, ye people of Kosciusko and vi cinity, and wipe off' this foul Mot from vour escutcheon.

The Council decided eight to five hat it was best to wait for rc-inforccment, before they atiackcd the Mexicans. Not withstanding this decision, Gen. Taylor, pushed on, and gave the Jlexicans battle with what success, every one know s. For this Gen. Taylor receives the highest en comiums of praise from a'l quarters, and is even promoted with great haste, to the rank of Brevet ilajor General, ylll this is very well perhaps, but mark the difference in the result suppose Gen. Taylor, having gone into the battle of t're 9th in opposition to the expressed judgment of a majority of the Council of War, had lost the battle, what then would have bceu tho eonsc-! quenccsl Gen.

This little girl was the only white person who witnessed the scene." "On being shot, Sims fell from h'u horse, but got up and attempted to get away ; lie ran scross several rows of cotton ; Silas pursued him ; knock- ed him down with clods ; stabbed him some 18' or 19 times; and then shot him a second time, placing the pistol near ?)is face, Mr. Sims was carried off for dead, but did not expire until Friday."

Neurit) 1 00 Lice Lost Iksluctivc Pirc-Fortisu bodiesoimd From the Quebec Mercury, June 1 -J.J j j ,. It 1ms again pleased the. Almighty to aillict our already chastened city. Last night at 10 o'clock, a fire, broke out in the Theatre Royal, St, Louis street, (formerly the Kiding School,) at the close of Mr. Harrison's exhibition of his Chemical Dioramas-. 1'ro.n tho information we have been aMo to glean, a camphinc lamp was overset, from some cause or other, and the stage nt once be came enveloped in flames. The house had been densely- crowded but some had fortun-itely left before the accident. A rush was at once maue to the stair case leading from tho boxes, by those who, in the excitement of tho moment, forgot the other passage of egress. In an incredibly short .iRaec of time the whole of the interior of the building was enveloped in one sheet of flame the newly erected phtform covering the pit, andeotnmunica'ting at each end with , the stage and boxes, favored the progress 01 me names. The writer of this article was one of tho earliest on the spot, and present ?t! the closing moments of the hapless beings! who perished from their over exertions ' to escape The staircase eommuiiieatmo - with tho boxes was a steep one, and hail fallen we believe from the weight of those who had crowded upon it. At least such was our opinion at the moment. One foot was interposed between the hapless crowd and eternity! and on that space we, with five or six others, stood, the fierce flames playing around us, and the dense smoke repelling nil efforts to extricate. As far back as we could see, there was a sea of heads, of writhing bodies, and outstretched arms. Noise there was none but few moms escap ed the doomed. At the extreme end in view there were faces calm nnd resigned; persons who, from the funeral veil of jsmrduLwluchcradjullyfiiiahrauded them appeared calmly to drop into eternal sleep. JJy cur side was one brother striving to extricate another, but aban donment was unavoidable. One poor creature nt our feet offered his entire worldly wealth for his re-cue. The ag onizing expression of the faces before, us can never be effaced from our memory. The flames at the lime were above and around us, but human aid was of no avail: in five minutes from the time of which we make mention, the mass of human beings who had but ashort inter val previous been in the enjoyment of a full and active life, were exposed to our view a mass of calcined bones. Up to this hour 40 bodies have been recovered from the ruins. Most of them have been recognized; a greater loss of! life than in the two dreadful ronfkgra- J nun? ui urn summer, oao wailing per vades the city. Scarcely a street can be traversed iu which tho closed shutter or the hanging crape do not betoken a sud den bereavement. Fathers, mothers, children of both sexes, indulge in the 1 -r . - l, 1 , deepest lamentation. Woe has fallen upon, many, for those who were thus suddenly and awfully summoned into the presence of their Creator. The theatre and stables adjoining, we i suouiu auu, were nurnt to the ground. The ruins are still smoking : and, as in the time of London's great plague, the dead-cart plies to and "fro from the sene of the calamity to different parts of the city, conveying its ghastly load of charred remains, followed by weep ing relatives and the gaping crowd w hich ever attend such dread scenes. A Brio iit Look-ovt. A Wash in"" on correspondent of the New York da zette and Times says: "As a specimen of the efficiency of the Government and the mode in wJiich business is done by the Navy department I may mention also that ii is done by the Navy department. I may mention also that it is a fact, that the squadron in the Pacific, on examining their stores found that then had been sunrdicd with caps for their cannon that would not fire!! They would absolutely have been unable to make any defence had they been attacked. It was to remedy this tall specimen of inefficiency that a special messenger Lieut.

The Cotton market has been reduced again to a state of comparative quietude. Prince Louis Napoleon has arrived in England Incog-, nod is about to leave for Florence, there to join his invalid father. It would appear from what O'Conncll stated on Monday, that Sir Ilobert Peel is determined to press forward the Irish Coercion liiil when Parliament reassem bles, after the Whitsuntide holidays. The Oregon question has now ceased to give any uneasiness. Freights at Liverpool. The'warlikc tidings per Cambria, have tended to check shipments in some degree, and a few houses having determined not to ship in American bottom?, has caused some little enquiry for Uritish vessels. There is not however, a single Ameri can ship in the. port unfreighted. The amount of freights going forward is still limited. In the absence of much de mand for passages, ship business must lie considered dull, notwithstanding the unusual scarcity of tonnage, The Pari paper La Presse, of Mon- ('a.v' reached our office last night,' which :irHinees that orders had been sent by l'10 Minister of Marine to Brest, and the ' "ther military n niiors, to despatch a num- her of ships to the Gulf of Mexico to rein force tb.e squadron stationed there, in consequence of the war between the U. States and -Mexico. The Overland mail of Mav 1st reach ed London yesterday. It possesses no political, and little commercial interest. The seeds of another contest in the .Sikli country were sown at the termination of the late war. Portugal has been tho scene of nn other attempt at revolution, consequent upon the change of the Ministry. It appears that for the Portuguese it would have been a more than ordinary cncrret ic affair. England has offered her mediation be ' tweetrflVe" tThhfc'flffaVs and Mexico. Mr. Paelicnham has received instruc tions to thai effect from the IJiitish Go vernment by the Caledonia. The second reading of the Irish Coer cion Bill is to take place on Monday next. Respecting tho fate of the Ministry the impression is, that Sir Ilobert Peel is far in advance of his colleagues, and that he is anxious to apply to sugar the free trade principles which he has extend ed to corn. The annual statement of the Exchange is given, comparing the income with the expenditures for the current year an ticipated a surplus of two million two hundred pounds. But the increased ex- P('nditure in Navy and OrdnanccMepart- mems tliis year, only left a surplus of seven hundred and seventy-six thousand. of which seven hundred thousand was received from China. The opposition Paris journals all hide with the United States, and predict an early conquest of Mexico. The appre hension caused by tho Mexican war weighed on the money market. The commercial treaty between Prus sia and Turkey, which has been so long in preparation was signed 011 the SOlh" of April. The news from Caucasus is not im portant. The Cholera. We have already stated that the Cholera Mad made its ap pearance in some ol the provinces of 1 crvia, carrying death mto the principal towns. It has spread from tho HoL-:im to Herat am! Meshio, und has now taken the direction from the Caspian sea to Teheran aril Ispahan. Late accounts from Odessa state that it had crossed the Russian territory and appeared suddenly at Tifl is, taking a northerly direction be tween the Caspian and Black sens. On the other side the Cholera broke out un expectedly at Orcnbourg, in the mines of the Ural mountains ; it then crossed the Volga and set its foot in Europe at Casan, only 2,000 kilometers from St. Petersburg. If the accounts we have received are exact, it has taken a most irregular direction. It has advanced from west td north, and does not seem to follow the banks of tho river, as in 182S and 1832.

They were all well and in fine spirits. The, Austin News says that orders have been received by Major I auntleroy requiring him to proceed immediately to San Antonio with the company of dra goons under his command. Wq learn from the same paper that Captain S. Ilighsmith has raised and or ganized a company of mounted riflemen for 0 inonihs senior, to act as rangers betw een. Austin and the San Marcus. The Civilian says the gallant corps of Mississippians commanded by Capt. Shivors, called the 'Claiborne Riflemen,' have enlerod as Texan volunteers, to compose one of the four additional com panies which Capt. Seefelt and Lt. Con nor have been authorized to raise at Gal veston. They will be furnished with, subsistence to p t. Isabel by Lieut. Kings- bury, U. S. A. The complaints which were some time save heard ol the apathy nianifes tcJ by the Texans in regard to the war should now be put at rest. Every j per we open, no matter trom what part of Texas, reports the movement of the volunteers to tlm western frontier. We have not deemed it worth while to record all the details. J ho Austin Democrat nf ibe TOih mentions the escape of a Mexican bov aged 10 or 12 years, from the Camanches lie was originally taken near San Auto nio and effected his escape on the San Gabriel. According to his story, he managed his escape with great adroit ness.' He is to be restored to his moth er at San Antonio. Some complaints arc mado of the lawlessness of the Camanches in retur ning from the treaty ground, but they were going y est. r rosi Montevideo. I5y advices to the 21st ol April it appears that Gen. Rivera has re-established himself in power, and by a decree issued on the 17th of April had convoked an assembly ol Psotables for the first of May. General Rivera was about cmbarkin" for Coloma, whence he would proceed to Sal to, with 1,000 men of the garrison of Montevideo. .He had been declared rGeneral-in-chief of the Army of Opcy 1 jiiwii. The accounts from Ruenos Ayrcs are to the 4th of April, but they present nothing of interest. Gen. Urquiza, of urine s party, was still hovering on the borders of Corrientes, with a consider able force,, held in check, however,.by Gen. Paz, who is said to have under him 12,000 o 14,000 men.
