on tbe 27th was adopted.
The appraisement law WM farther amend
ed and ordered to be engrossed.
The bill securing liens to mechanioi, la
borers and others was amended, and passed.
The bill in reference to theJSapreme Court
Reporter was passed. The number of Re

fixed at 450.
A resolution to bold night flMsiooa, tad to

The steamer North Breton arrived at Port
land on the 21st, with English dates to the
8th lost. Wo see nothing very important
in the dispatches. The London stock mark

complications on the Continent.
AMoliter iiaie.
The project has been revived in the South
of viakiog a new State out of Northern Mis
sissippi, Western Tennessee, and the extreme
western p.irt of Kentucky, the boundary be
ing the Tennessee River on the east and the
Mississippi on the west. The Tennessee
Legislature has approved the project. The
objeet, of coarse, is to strengthen the slave
power in the Senate. It is a modest claim,
in view of the fact that the people would be
scarcely able to support a State government,
and also in view of the fact that every inob
of territory introduced into the Union since
1787 has been or is considered slave terri
tory.

MONDAY, March 19.
Boon-—Mr. Wjtier's report, giving a his

Asylum Commieaumers, did not please the
Democrats. The report wa« laid on the
table.

Tna CHARLESTON HOTELS.-—The Charleston
Mercury cf the 16th says that the rumor
from Washington in regard tu changing the
Demooratie Convention, suspended or re
tarded the arrangements which bad been in
rapid progress. It was a damper on the
Charleston landlords, and they boldly
charged the movement to the Douglas men.
They say that the real members of the Con

RAILROAD GRANT.—Quinn's bill, g'.ving
the lands to the Cedar Rapids road, on terms
similar to the original grant to the Air Line
road, was before the House on the 20th, and
it was thought would be adopted by that
body.
GHOSTS.—Ghostsand communications with
the spirit world are getting to be vulgarly
common, and the papers abound in ghost
stories. The latest is that told of Mr. Cogs
well, librarian of the Astor Library in New
York. On three successivo nights, as the
^r* Cogswell, while pursuing bis
vocation at a late hour, plainly saw the form
of Dr. ——, lately deoeascd, and each time
be accosted the form, wishing to know why
be, who never visited the library while liv
ing, should trouble it now when dead? The
ghost made no answer, but silently retired.
Mr. Cogswell was not at all alarmed, and
la at a loss how to account for the appari
tion the more so as he never was intimate
with the deceased Dr. while living. By the
advioe of his friends, Mr. Cogswell has gone
South for the benefit of his health.
William Lloyd Garrison is dissatisfied
with William H. Seward. He says
The temptation whioh proved too powerful

Its effect will be highly detrimental to the
moral sentiment of the'North on the subjeot

Ths St. Louis A'MPS presents the clsarest
statement of the reoent events near Vera
Orus, and of the causes which led to them,
which we have seen. We therefore transfer
it to oar columns, only adding that Mr. Bu
chanan's administration is understood to fa

the Liberals, while Miramon is understood
to be the leader of the Churoh party
The telegraph this morning, bringus ex
citing intelligence from the Gulf. The
empty marching, countermarching, and mae
oeuvoring that have been going on in the
neighborhood of Vera Out, hate at la^t, re
sulted in an actus! naval engagement between
the U. 8. steamer Saratoga, and the Mexican
steamers Gen. Miramon and Marqoess, in
wbiob both the latter were captured. They
are now safely anchored at the New Orleans
wharf a»p a&8 of the United States. For
the information of our readers, we give an
explanation of the oauses that led to this
affair.
Vera Crus is the stronghold of the Juares,
or Liberal pirty in Mexico, defended on land
by a garrison of 3,000 or 4,000 men, and
protected in front by the formidable Castle
of San Juan de Ulloa. For several weeks
Miramon has been meditating an attack on
the place by land, aided by an assault from
the Gulf, which, it was understood, has been
in course of secret preparation at Havana.
During this time, Amerioan, French, and
British ^squadrons have been stationed at
Vera Crus to protect the interests of thsir
respective flags from violenoo, and their oiti
sens from outrage, by the contending fac
tions. The American squadron, as being the
favorite of the Liberal party, was allowed to
anchor under the gons of the Castle. On
the 29th of February, Miramun, having com
pleted bis preparations for the seige. took up
his position with 0,000 men, and a well pro
vided seige train, four miles from Vera Crus.
The inhabitants of the city, aware that an
expedition from Havana was expected, peti
tioned Commodore Jarvis to capture it as
soon as it made its appearance, and thus save
the city from bombardment. TheCommodore
did not give a decisive answer to this, but de
termined to await the eourse of events. On
the 6th inst., two steamers—tbo Gen. Mira
mon, and the Marqnese, from Havana—ap
peared before the city, with color*, and re
fused to show their flag. Com. Jarvis order
ed the Saratoea, Capt. Turner, with detach
meats from the Savannah and the Preble on
the small steamers Iniianola and Wave, to
proceed to the anchorage to ascertain the
character of the suspicious vessels. When
the Saratoga, towed by the lndianola, ap
proached, the steamers tried to escape, and
Capt. Turner sent a boat with a flag, to de
mand their nationality. The boat was fired
at by the steamers, the firo was returned by
a broadside from the Saratoga, and the fight
began in good earnest, the steamers having
hoisted the Spanish flag.
After a spirited action, Gen. Marin, the
commander of the Gen. Miramon and the
Marquese, surrendered with his ofBoers and
up to tbe Americans. The loss on the Ameri
can side was three wounded, one of tbem
mortally. Tbp enemy bad 6fteen killed, and
twenty or thirty taken prisoners. Tbe cap
tured vessels have been *ent with the crews
to Now Orleans.
It was said tbero was much excitement at
Vera Cruz-on acooun of tbe affair, tbe Span
ish and French denouncing the oonduct of
our squ&dxop in the bitterest terms.
A Taws en si Lake.
Rev. W. C. Smith, presiding elder of one
of tba Indiana coufcrences, gives the follow
ing account of Morgantown, in that State,
one of the peculiarities of whioh is that ii is
built on a lake:
We read of a city "set upon ft bill/' but
Morgantown, in my district, stands upon a
Ink*! This was nqt known for a number of
years after tbe town was settled. The dia
wvery was made by digging weils to procure
a full supply of watsr. The supply of water
in the wells whioh had been used failing in
the dry se«son, a few years since, one of tbe
oititi ns concluded to sink a well deeper, and
see if he could not strike a stronger vein.—
When some thirty-five or forty feet below the
surface of the earth, the man at work in tbe
well suddenly struck his pick through a crust
the water gushed up with such rapidity that
with dilfk-uity be was saved bv the men at
tbe windlass. In a few moments tbe water
was some fifteeu feet deep in the well. In
two or three instances afterward, men wero
near being lost ty coming suddenly to this
inexhaustible fountain of water.
ells have been sunk in differeut parts of
the town, remote from each other, and 1 be
lieve forty feet is tbe greatest ptb to reach
this lake. Lead lines have been dropped in
to several of these wi lls, but no bottom has
been found. In digging down to this lake,
they invariably pass through strata of sand,
leaves and timber/ resembling driftwoo»d.—
This is some twenty feet below the surface
of the earth. Attcr passing through the*e
strata, a stratum of bard clay is found, a^d
when within some eighteen mobes of tbe
lake, a hard crast is reached, whioh is a sure
indication that they are near the water.—
When they reach this crust they commence
a wall thereon, carrying it to (he top of thr
well, then put down a large auger, and bore
a bole, to the water, whioh gushes up with
great force, filling the well from fifteen to
twenty feet in a few minutes. When the
auger strikes the lake tbe atmosphere bursts
up for a ft-w seconds, producing a sound re
sembling very much the blowing off of steam
from an engine. 1 have not given all tbe
particulars of what has been discovered of
this mysterious lake. Enough is known to
settle it beyond a doubt thut tbe whole town
stands upoo a lake underground.

Acxican Affairs.
WASHINGTON, March 20.
The news from Mexico has created a pro
found sensation here. Particulars of ths
captnro of the two Spanish steamers ars
awaited with great interest. It was suppos-
on tbe part of ear naval force is fully sus
tained.' Great Indignation is expressed to
ward* the Spanish authorities in Cuba fur
fitting out this expedition to act against tbe
Constitutional Gjveroment of Mexico, which
we recognise. It is believed by some that
the two steamers were fitted out by the au
thority ot Spain and sustained by France.
A markabie change has taken place with
in the the last 48 hours in the minds of those
legislators who have opposed the Nicaragua
and ean treaties.
The Democratic Senators held a caucus
this morning to discoss the propriety of ceas
ing all efforts to make any treaty with any
Spanish American country, sinoe the Repub
licans have brought matters to a dead lock.
Ths Republican Senators also held a caucus
on the subject, and the discussion was warm.
Tho result was, that Senator Dixon, of
Conn., and teveral others, joined Senator
Wilson in the policy indicated by his vote on
4he^-Niear9gtiat5 trcatr, and if practicable,
will resuscitate tbe Nicaraguan treaty and
pass it.
WASHINGTON, March 21*
The Government, with such information
as is now in its possession, approves of the
recent conduct of our navy in the Gulf.—
The refusal of tbe Miramon steamers to show
tb eir colors »ben asked to was considered
sufficient to place them iu tbe position of
pirates.
[ADDITIONAL.]
NEW ORLEANS, March 20.
Nfrsmon paid $55,000 for the two steam
ers. They were passed by all the foreign
squadrons, and the Castle without hoisting a
flag, ulthough ordered to do so by a shot
from the Castle, and other signals. The
English, Fr uch, and Spanish vessels of war
did not notice the fact. The engagement
took place by moonlight. Tbe prisoners cor
roborate the report in relation to the steam
I ers, that they cleared at Havana as merohant
I men, and hoisted the Mexican flag only after
leaving port mnd subsequently mounted their
guns.
NEW ORLEANS, March 21.
Miramon notified the captains of foreign
vessels that he shouui eommenoe the bomb
ardment of Vers Crus on tho night of the
5th, and would not be responsible for tbe
shipping anchored under the Castle. On
i the same mght the officers on deck of the
Geu. Miramon heard heavy oannonading in
tbe direction of Vera Crus.
There were oaptured with the two steam
ers, six 22-pounders, ssx mortars, and 2000
stand small arms. Tbe steamers are worth
$GU,000. Tbey broke down ou tbe 3d daj

taihs tba following
Last fall the wife of a gentleman in Ken
tucky came to this city to visit two sisters,
one of them residing at the South End and
the other in a neighboring city. She re
mained during tbe winter, and a few weeks
since tbe husband came after her. Upon his
arrival he was surprised to learn that she
bad become a believer in spiritualism and
was a medium. Ile made arrangements for
their return home, his wife apparently con
curring, and after a final visit to her suburb
an sister, tbey came to the residence of her
sister in Boston, for ths purpose of staying
a day or two prior to their departure. Boon
after reaobmg tbe house, she left her hus
band in tbe parlor, apparently to go to ths
kitchen, and immediately left tbe house. As
she did not return, he made inquiries whioh
satisfied him that her flight had been premed
itated, and that she had become tbe com
panion of a man with whom she had formed
an acquaintance in spiritualistic circles.—
Information was given to tbe Chief of Police,
who at onoe interested himself in the case,
and he has obtained good evidence that she
has not left the city. The woman, whose
photograph was placed in the hands of tbe

and fend of dross. The deserted
husband is a professional man and a gentle

A Shelter from lady* Baua.
ST. Lons, March 20.— Edward Bates ad
dressed a letter to tbe Missouri delegates to
the Chicago Convention in reply to inter
rogatories propounded him by tbem. It will
appear io to-morrow's Democrat. The main
points are as follows
He has no new opinions on ttie Tubjoot of
slavery none formed with refcrenoe to the
present array of parties. His are coeval
with the Missouri question of 1820—formed
his opinions then and has not obanged them
since. At tbe time of the Revolution, and
long after, slavery was regarded as an evil,
temporary in its nature and likely to disap
pear in oourse of time, yet while it continu
ed it was a misfortune to the country, soci
ally and politically. Slavery is a sooial in
stitution—a domestic institution. It exists
by local law. The Federal Government has
rio control over it in the States. The Terri
tories are subject and subordinate—not su
preme like tbe States. Tbe nation is supreme
over them. He is opposed to the extension
of slavery, and in his opinion the spirit and
policy of tbe government ought to be against
its extension.
Tbe Constitution does not carry slavery
into the Territories, nor anywhere. It only
acts upon it wbere it is established by local
law. The Dred Scott oase only decides that
Soott was not a citixen. The opinions of
tbe Judges beyond this are extra-judisia! and
of no authority. The questions discussed
by th wsre politioal, and not within their
cognisance, and belong tc and can be dispos
ed of only by the politiaal departments. The
discussion was most unfortunate, as it pro
duced dangerous conflicts between co-ordi
nate branches of the Government. He fa
vors tbe colonisation of free blacks to Ameri
can tropiee. He is in favor of the Home
stead biii, and the immediate admission of
Kansas perfect equaiity of rights among
citiseus, and the construction or ths Pacific
Railroad under the auspices of the Govern
ment. He is gratified that bis name has only
been used in a spirit of harmony and peace,
and to prevent division and controversy
among those who ought to be united he has
neither sought nor bsid any politioal office
for twenty five years, and is satisfied with
honors already paid him by the pubiio.
Io one of tbe market-houses of Phila
delphia, is a genius of a butcher. Beneath
his sleeves and apron be wears tbo costliest
of broadcloth—none of the inferior grades,
but the finest production of French loom#
His linen is as faultless as bis exterior gar
ments, while the glistening surface of his
marble counters Is no less striking than the
glossiness of bis hat and boots. In tbe cen
tre of his shirt bosom sparkles a single dia
mond—a stone of six oarats weight, and of
the first water. Upon the little finger of tbe
left hand glitters a circlet of diamonds, six
in number, whose aggregate value is consid
erably more tban that of the garniture of bis
shirt bosom. His complexion is a clear red
and white—just that style of complexion
which Parisian ladies produce by dainty com
mixture of esrmine and bismuth. He is a
man of fine phyhique, and has an averdupois
of about 2vKJ pounds. Llis address is polish
ed, and his manners oourtly and suave. He
commenced life without a dollar, and is now
taxed for some $30,000 in real estate, yet is
as polite and deferential to bis customers as
on the day he first embarked in tbe business
of converting quarters of beef into sirloins.
A benevolent lady of large fortune, first no
tieed him, and placed at his disposal a fund
upon which he nas raised the superstructure
of bis present fortune. He is now rapidly
advancing in wealth, and will probably retire
en the eighth of a million. And &H through

sity—politeness.
