The happy tidings of the safety of the eteamer
Atlantic bo universally absorbed the curiosity o :
the public, on the arrival of the Africa, that the
position of public a lid in in the various European
States possessed no interest. A calm having suc
ceeded to thefirat tumultuous joy, we are now able
to indicate the prominent points in the progress of
events on the other side of the water.
The succsse of Louis Napoleon in his coup d'etat
? for such it must be considered? will tend greatly
to strengthen his position. He will gain credit for
? firmness of purpose, which, it has been said,
Jorms no part of his character. The means of his
?access are found in his new cabinet, composed of
men outside of the active political circle, who, in
carrying out the principles avowed ia the Presi
dent's annual message, will ride much more se
curely cd the tide of popular favor than those
who?e political voyages have been often criticised,
?ad even severely censured. The chart by which
they propose to steer their course is a pla n and
sample one. It involves little that id doubtful, and,
H adhered to, will be a sufficient answer to the
charge of ore of the members of the National As
sembly, that the message was an act of hypocrisy
The letter of our Paris correspondent gives a ra
th ?r indignant evidence of the hostility of a portion
of public opinion to the decision of Louis Napoleon
in forming a new cabinet? but the act of the As
sembly in pasting to the business of the day, and
the calm that succeeded M Royer's reply, very
clearly show that the President 11 in the very best
possible i*>sition. He could not have secured himself
better, after the diMnissal of Changarmer, than by
that act, which lus established for him a character
m a politician, such as he hat not hitherto enjoy
ed. Of his ambition and his purposes we may be
justified in saying this? that it remains for France
to prove her attachment for the republic, and that
Napoleon can become nothing that France herself
does not approve. Her chief danger is m those
legitimists who still ligh for the days of kingcraft,
?ad who have not vet learned to sacrifice their
?wn vtia prejudices in behalf of the common good
of their country ar.d country men.
The speech of the Queen of Knglaad? m abstract
?has already teen published. It is more vague
and unsatisfactory i ban usual. No reference seems to
be made in it to the World's Fair, the most popular
topic of the present season; and the Roman Cat ho
he question is touched wr.h aspiring hind How
ever, it may yet be found that the spiritual power
of the Pope nvolves a control over men's tempo
ral affairs: cd on that ground, Parliament may
meet any recommendation made by Lord John
Kusrell, with peculiar favor? provided it strikes
deep enough to suit the political instincts of the
wisdom of the nation
We perceive that the Pope proposes to abdicate.
In the present posture of alt&irs, this movement is
?ae that msy have a very important result, parti
cularly as there is a rut pow. r at w.,rk, like the
eaaldron of a volcano, under the whole of Italy,
and which may again show its strength at an
early lay. in addition to this resolution of th?*
Po(4>. *?* Si d. alto, that Cardinal Anton-lli has
determined to give the |>eo| le of this country a
special dispensation, in the shape of three cardinals;
oo<- of whom, we do not doubt, will be our parti
cular friend, Bishop Hugh s, for whose spiritual
emltai. n we have often earnestly an<l fervently
prayed. Titles, in this couatry, are of little im

Law Oatragct.
la yesterday's Herald ws published an account
of the arrest of a negro, named Shadrach, in Boa
ton, on the charge of being a fugitive from the
State of Virginia, and his rescue from the officer*
who had him in charge, by a mob of negroea, who
forced an entrance into the United States Court
room and earned him off. It aeenu that Shadrach
decamped from the service of Mr. De Bree, in the
month of May last, and from that time to the day
of his arrest, lived in the capacity of waiter in a
co flee house m that city. He was recognized a few
days since, and a warrant for hi* arrest was issued,
in regular form, by the United StateB Marshal.
When he was in custody ot the Commissioner, and
when the case was under advisement, the counsel
for the fugitive asked a postponement of the case
till to-morrow, (Tuesday,) which was grant
ed. The court room was then cleared; but on
the application of the fugitive's counsel, those
gentlemen were admitted, for the purpose of con
sulting with him as to the line of defence which
they should adopt in his case. When the confer
ence was terminated, they proceeded to depart,
and as the last of then was leaving the court room,
the door was forced in by an infuriated mob of co
lored people, who knocked down the officers, and
carried the fugitive away in triumph.
This is the greatest outrage to the laws that has
taken place in many years; and it shoirs conclu
sively that the teachings of the white negroes of
Boston have produced the only effect which they
could produce on the black negroes of that city .
That degraded portion of the population have at
length broken the law, and violated the sanctuary
of justice. They have committed one of the
gravest offences known to the law, and in.
suited the majesty of the people and of the
government of the United States. But what
I else could be expected in a city which
tolerates such disorganise rs as Lloyd Garrison,
| Wendell Phillips, and their coadjutors in mischief 1
The city of Boston stands disgraced before the
whol? country. The stigma ot this act cannot be
washed out, except by the punishment, to the full
est extent of the law, of all who took part in, or
connived at, this gross outrage, as well as their
aiders and abetters ? black, white, blue or grey ?
whosoever they may be. If the citizens of Boston
have any desire to be reinstated in the good opinion
of their fellow citizens throughout the country,
they will exert themselves to the utmost to see that
the law is vindicated. They are bound, at all
events, not only morally, but legally, to pay the
value of the fugitive to his claimant. This, however,
' is an insignificant mattar compared with the gross
outnge which was perpetrated by the mob in
violently rescuing the slave from :he custody of
the United States officers. That disgrace cannot
be atoned for in any other manner than by punish
ing the rescuers, and teaching them a lesson winch
they will remember for the remainder of their lives
that laws? no matter if they are objectionable to
them ? must be obeyed as long as they remain on the
statute book, and ihat they cannot be resisted or
I disobeyed with impunity. They must be taught
that the higher law doctrine of resistance cannot be
put in practice, although it may be cited by dema- !
gogues to suit their own purpose, or promote their ,
private ends
A great reponeibility now rests on the United j
? States authorities in Boston, especially the District
' Attorney and the Marshal, in reference to this
' matter. They may not be able to recapture Sha
drach the fugitive, for it is very probable that be
is by this time beyond their reach, having un- ,
doub'.edly fled to Canada; but they can arres(
and bring to punishment the vagabonds who broke
into the court room and rescued him. They shuold
leave no stone unturned. Fortunately they have j
abundance of testimony; for the several officers
from whose custody the fugitive was violently ,
j taken will unquestionably be able to recognise
and identify the ringleaders and most active of the
mob. if they fail in performing their duty promptly
and efficiently, they should be immediately dis
missed from effice, and better men dubstitu:ei in
their stead. But we have no apprehension that
they will. We feel confident that they will dis
charge the responsibility now resting on them with
firmness, and wr.h fidelity to the laws, and to their
fellow citizens throughout the confederacy.
This is the second failure to execute the Fugi
tive Slave Uw in the city of Boston. The country
exjects that it will be the last Fugitives from
slavery, now living in different parts of the North
ern and Kastern States, will doubtless flojk to that
city, under the impression that they will be secure
there? that the law cannot be carried into effect.
We therefore recommenl such of our SoJthern
fellow citizens as have lost slaves, to keep a
watch on that city, in order to discover them, if
possible; and we ad-ue the officers of the United
States, when they arrest such fugitives, to take them
?o t?*e Charlestons nivy yari. Nor would it, we
think, be ami*1, on future occasions, to cat! on
Mayor Bigeiow for a detachment of military to
sustain the United States authorities in carrying out
the law If it be necessary to shed blood and alee
hie, ui vindicating the law, let it be done, even if a
thousand be sacrificed. The constitution and the
laws must l>* upheld, without r?gard to conse

6iC. &t. &c.
| We published, yesterday, a tall soconnt of the tnls
I b?p which occurred to tha steamship Atlantic on her
trip from Liverpool to Kew York, and attempted at the
same tin* to daaeriba the enthusiasm which the Intel
llgence of her safety created in thi? city. We say that
we attempted to do so, for it would b? Impossible to
depict it in inch a manner as to convey to our reader!
at a distance a true idea of It. The community ofNew
York, of every class, indulged in an exuberance of joy,
snch as we have seldom witnessed in this oity of ex
I citement
The Atlantic, it appears, left Liverpool under very
favorable auspices, although during the prevalenc ot
a gale which was so severe as to render it unsafe to
land her pilot. It was hoped that by the time she got
to sea. the wind would have abated; but it did not.
No sooner bad she passed Cape Clear that she met
with as rough and a? boisterous a s?a as was ever
seen in that region. Nevertheless, the Atlantic wan
not to be deterred. She was constructed in the strong
I est nuuner possible, and fitted to encounter any hur
' rlcane or any sea that the Weatarn ocean erer wltnes*
| ed, with safety ; and with full confidence that she
1 was equal to any emergency which oould arise, her
captain. Mr. West, and her first officer, Mr. Shufeldt,
headed her towards Cape Kace, confident that she
i would give a good aocount of herself. But "man
proposes and Ood disposes." On the sixth ot Janu
ary, when the noble ship was nine day* at sea,
having encountered during that time a succession
ot galss from the westward, the main shaft broke. Of
! courre. this accident precluded all hope of her making
I her usual passage; for she would have to depend upon
! sail alone to reach the port of her destination, some
| 'onrteen hundred miles distant. Halifax being the
| nearest port, Captain West determined to head her for
that plaea; but another gale baTing sprung up. It was
deemed best to steer for Bermuda. Kut the wind being
unpropitious, her course was changed, with the ass?nt
of the passengers and officers; and at ten o'clock. P M ,
on the eleventh of January, westerly winds still pre
vailing. Capt. in West determined to seek the nearest
port in Europe, which was Cork, in Ireland, distant
fourteen hundred miles. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon
of the 23d of January sh? anchored in Cork roadstead
irf safety, having accomplished that distance in alittle
over ten days. Considering the immense dimensions
of th?Atlantlc, and the small amount of canvas which
she carries this was an extraordinary teat. Thanks to
a kind Providence, and to the skill of Captain West
and Mr. Shufeldt, the Atlantic reached.Cork in safely,
with no damage to the ship ol any moment. Infaot,
we learn from the English papers that she could have
been refitted tor s*a in Cork, iu a very short time; but
Captain West being subject to the crder^of the agonts
of tha Collins line, in England, had to abide by their
directions, and they gava directions that she should
b? towed to Liverpool, and a new shaft made lor her

Utica, Feb. 16, 1350.
About half put 13 *'010011 last uigbt the drug and
grooery store of Foster and Dickcnson, No. 117 Ge
nesaa street, was destroyed by.flre? which broke out In
tha lower story, and rapidly consumed the whole
building aud stock. During the progress of the fire
there were frequent explosions ef considerable vio
lence, as the liquor casks and several cans of gunpow
der were reached by the flame*. These did no parti
cular damage although the shocks were ielt mora or
less in bouses several doors distant. The {progress
of the fire was so rapid, that nothing was saved,
and the books and valuables which were in the safe
were not removed, but on taking the safe from the
ruins, the books and papers were found uninjured.
The proprietors have apprehensions that the stora
was entered from the rear, and the safe forced, and
that the robbers in their retreat tired the building,
as no tires or candlrs had been used in the store
for some hours previous. The stock of Foster
6l Dickenson was insured tor 18,000 dollars,
distributed among the Howard, Htna, Long island,
Km i) ire State, and Home Protection companies It
was valued from $20. (CO to $25,000. The building
was tbe property of liev, A brain Illoodgood, and was
insured in the Albany Insurauoe Co A small brick j
addition in the rear, the property of F. & D . was in- '
sured $t00. The bookstore ot J. Tiffany, and the office
of tha UlUa Ifuily Obitrvrr, which were in the build- i
ing next below, were saved, but their property was
considerably damaged by removal before the proprie- !
tors arrived. Tbe loss of Mr Tiffany must bs about j
$600. The store of Bayre Ben, above, was also saved.
About 4 o'clock this morniug, a second alarm was
created ty tbe burning of the barn attached to the
Catharine t treet House. It was in the rrar ot the first
fire, and probably caught from it The upper part of
tbe bain was destroyed. It was the property ol Hou.
Horatio Beymour; probably insured. Messrs. Jones
ft 1'orter, of tbe Catharine Street House, were insured
$100 on their hay, oats. A;c. ThebarnsofJ llutter
fleld Si Son were saved almost by a miracle. The
loss of materials of Messrs. B. & Son is within $60'J;
