pet on fire, it was discovered in timo to present
demage* An effort was also made to burn down an
other block of new bniidiegs in the same neighbor
hood. The second story floor of one of the houses had
been burned nearly through, but from appearances the
fire died out for want of materials sufficiently com
bustible. These daring attempts at incendiarism ex
cited the greatest vigilance of the authorities, and the
Mayor, after a close investigation of the matter, has
* procured the arrest of the man who had charge of the
Buildings previous to'the first attempt, and has drawn
from him a confession in which is embodied the most
astounding developments. He states that a man named
McCarty, the builder of the houses, engaged him to
fire the property, premising him as recompense for the
job two hundred dollars in money, a lot of ground and
more besides. He said the houses were insured pretty
heavily—one for s3ooo—and he wanted them burned
down, before the policy of insurance was withdrawn
by the insurance company, an event which he waa
fearful would take place from the previous conflagra
tion. He did as McCarty desired him to, and the re
cult is known. The examination is not yet finished.
The Brooklyn Grand Jury.—The follow
ing list of indictments, found by the Grand Jury of
King’s County during the present term of the Court of
Oyer and Terminer, were presented on Tuesday last.
Manslaughter, fourth degree, 1; Grand Larceny, 5 ;
Larceny, 2; Assault and Battery, 8 ; Burglary, 7; At
< tempt to Commit Rape, 1; Murder,!. .Total, 2.5. The
' Grand Juiy not having concluded their labors again
retired for further deliberation. John O’Sullivan,
against whom an indictment for murder was found by
the proceeding Grand Jury, was arraigned, and pleaded
not guilty. The prisoner stands charged with killing
his wife/some months since, on his return to Fort
Hamilton, where they resided. He brought home a
load of coal from the city, and ordered his wife to help
him unload, which she declined doing, as she was in
a delicate state of health at the time. It is alleged
that he then kicked her, from which death ensued.
William Brennan, against whom a bill for murder was
found during the present term, was arraigned, and
pleaded not guilty. The accused was proprietor of a
porter-house in Williamsburgh, and during a disturb
ance which occurred about a month since, shot a man,
from the effects of which he died soon after. It is al
leged that the weapon was discharged accidentally in
the scuffle. On Thursday last further presentments
•were made, but it was concluded that no case should
be taken up for trial till next Tuesday.
Mr. Pease and the Five Points’ Mis
sion—Some time ago the character of Mr. Pease, the
Five Points’ Missionary was violently assailed by cer
tain parties, who made a number of specific charges
against that gentleman which we did not believe at
the time were founded in truth, and we are glad to
perceive that from statements recently made they must
now fall to the ground. During the past week, Mr.
Pease has published, in his defence, letters from Mr.
James Donaldson, Mr. (Jharles Ely and Mr. H. R. Rem
sen, as well as the report of a committee appointed at
Niblo’s to inquire into his affairs, all tending to prove
conclusively that the business of the House of Indus
try has been properly attended to, and every cent of*
money accounted for, even to the last fraction. Mr.
Donaldson served as treasurer of the House for seme
time, Mr. Ely was one of the Directors, and Mr. Rem
sen was a trustee. While upon this subject we may as
well remark that Margaret Ryan, the original “ Wild
Maggie ” has made an affidavit to the effect that it
was Mr. Pease who first took her off the street, and
that on one occasion a man named McClain attempted
to coax her away from him. The girl’s father endor
ses this affidavit, and says if he has been made to say
anything to the contrary, he has been either mteuu
cerstocd or misrepresented.
A Fanatical 11 Blower.”—Mr. J. S. Orr,
who styles himself the Angel Gabriel, and who goes
around the streets attended by a private secretary,
warning the people to fly from the wrath to come,
seems determined to fulfil his holy mission “ in spite of
wind and weather,”* for, on Sunday last, notwithstand
ing that it “rained cats and doge,” he stationed him
self upon the City Hall steps, and spoke “ trumpet
tongued” to the unfortunate few who had- there sought
shelter from the rain. The Angel seemed to be some
what out of sorts, and did not blow his trumpet so
lustily as usual. Perhaps the weather affected him.
His private secretary, too, looked crest-fallen, and his
countenance bore anything, but a minted expression,
while the accordeon which he carried, gave forth,
whenever he touched it, an asthmatic -Bound, as if it
also felt the effects of the atmosphere. “ Who is this
Mr. Orr, and what does he do for a living?” is a ques
tion which’we hear often asked, but it is easier asked
than answered. We believe he does all his blowing on
Sunday, and probably he drops the Angel during the
week, and, putting on mortality, works at his trade,
which may be that of shoemaking, for ought we know.
It is evident that he wishes to become a mender of
souls {soles) at all events.
“ Individual Sovereignty.”—A rather cu
rious affair recently came off in our sister city of Wil
liamsburg, which fully carries out the doctrine of “ in
dividual sovereignty.” A German lady, of rather pre
possessing appearance, who is the wife of a kind, but
rather honely iQoking husband, took a fancy to a fel
low countryman, who in person had considerably the
advantage of her mate. The fascination was mutual,
and in the most business like way our heroine packed
up her things and advised her husband that she was
about to leave him to live with her new lover. No
persuasion could induce her to change her mind. She
accordingly left for her new domicil and left the hus
band to pine in loneliness. After the lapse of about a
month, the lady became satisfied that she had no
changed her condition for the better—that all hand
some m'n are not considerate lovers. In this dilemma
she neither took poison nor threw herself into the
river, as other silly women do under similar circum
stances ; but with all the coolness in the world, packed
up her moveables and went back to her husband, who,
as we are told, received his truant wife back again
with open arms. If this is not the perfection of “ in
dividual sovereignty,” then we don’t know what is!
City Mortality.—The number of deaths
the past wrek was the same as the previous week 484
Of which 295 were of a*d under the age of ten years.
The principal causes of this mortality among children,
are classed as Convulsions, (infantile,) 47 ; Croup. 19;
Dropsy in lhe Head, 26; Marasmus, (infantile,) 22 ‘
Measles, 7; Scarlet Fever, 14, and 31 still-boro, in
cluded in the return—being 166 of the whole number
of children. There were 18 deaths by fevers other
than Scarlet; and by Inflammations, 50 : of which 29 (
Were of the lungs. Consumption numbered 63. The
Dumber the previous week, were by Inflammation of
the Lungs 37, and Consumption 73—showing an im
provement in the diseases of the respiratory system.
That loathsome disease, Small-Pox, carried off 27 vic
tims—the same number as the week previous. The
sexes and nativity are divided thus: Men. 81; Women,
97: Boys, 157 ; Girls, 149. Natives of the U. 5.,315;
Ireland, 94 ; Germany. 40 ; England, 15 ; Scotland,s:
other countries, 15. The number of children being a
near approach to persons of native birth, establishes
the general bealthfulness of our resident native popu
lation, confirmed by the fact that of the week’s mor
tality, 40 were of lately arrived emigrants, having oc
curred at Ward's Island.
Bold Attempt of a Forger and Burglar
to Escape from Prison —At an early hour yesterday
morning, a bold attempt of a forger and burglar to
.escape from the City Prison, was frustrated by officer
McCluskey, of the 6th Ward police, it appears the
notorious Miller who was concerned with Cbauucy
Johnson in the Bankjof New York robbery, and a des
perate burglar named Donnelly, (who robbed Derby’s
stere in Broadway.) were confined in addjoining ceils
on the second corridor and for some two weeks past,
have been actively engaged in digging out a hole
through the massive wall, leadiing into the Court of
Sessions room. The daring villains had succeeded in
removing stones and plaster nearly sufficient to permit
them to crawl out into the Sessions Chambers, and
then their escape would have been unavo : dable. Fortun
ately the break in the wallW,,«observed by the keen eye
of officer McCloskey, just as the villains were about to
take their flight. Mr. Gray, the excellent warden of
that institution, immediately had the heroic felons
placed in irons and a strict watch will be kept over
them until they are tried.
The Travel from Jersey City to Newark.
—On Wednesday last the horses, omnibusses, stables
and other property of the late linp of stages from Jersey
City to Newark were sold at auction, and the line is
at present discontinued. Why this should be so, we
are at a loss to conceive, and we can account for it
upon no other hypothesis than that the citizens of
New Jersey would rather pay double price to supporta
monopoly than to travel on any other route for nothing.
While this line of omnibusses was in operation, a
traveller could go from Jersey City to Newark nearly
as quick as the cars for half price, but this did not
suit the Jerseymcn, for it might have interfered with
the railroad company. It is said that another line will
soon be put on. In the meantime another railroad
from Jersey City to Newark is proposed, which is to
be constructed on a straight fine. The route will be
south of the present railroad, and below the Newark
plank road. The Hackensack and Passaic rivers v/ifl
be crossed near their entrance into Newark bay. In,
the. Legislature, on Wednesday, Mr. Rafferty g&ve
notice of a bill to charter this company.
Another Seduction Case.—A feeling of
■faithlessness among our young men is decidedly prev
alent. Seductions multiply. Scarcely a week passes
that some youth is not brought up with a round turn
for his abort coming?. O.i Friday morning a young
German was taken before Justice Bogartat the Tombs,
on the complaint of Mbs Alice Martin, who charged
him with having seduced her under a solemn promise
of marriage, which promise be ruthles-ty broke, and
sent her word by h<r brother that he was married.
This statement, however, it is supposed, was only a
subterfuge which the amorous youth put forward with
& view to avoid “facing the music,” the infantile mnric
we mean, which is almost sure to follow a mitrimonial
alliance of such paities as are full of blood and blue
veins. We trust- that the young man ia question will
take a sober secend-thought and make the amenle .
honorable to Miss Alice. If he does qot his future will
be embittered every time he chances to hear the plain
tive melody commencing—
** O, don’t you remember sweet Alice,
An Ungrateful Girl.—ln Brooklyn, a
few nights since, a young female calling nerself
Catherine, went to the house of Mrs. Green, in Smith
Street, between Dean and Bergen streets, and wished
to be accommodated with board. M-s. Green to’d her
that she did not take lady boarders, but as the evening
was pretty well advanced and the weather cold, she
allowed her to stay there for the night. The girl re
paid this kindness on the fidlowing morning by rob
. bing her benefactress of a port monnaie containing
115 with which she made her escape. A deed like
this is far more reprehensible than a common theft,
for besides outraging the law of hospitality, ihe con
duct of the unprincipled thief may tend to throw bus
picion upon some really honest but unfortunate girl.
We sincerely tiust that this female imposter may be
arrested and punished as she deserves. She is repre
sented as being tab, of light complexion, somewhat
freckled, and her dress consisted of a straw hat with
pink ribben and a plaine delaine dress.
An Indignant Bail Giver. —Some time
eince we published the arrest of a woman named Ade
laide Edwards, with a long string of aliases, charged
with having picked the pocket of a poor woman while
in an omnic us. It will be remembered that she was
discharged at the time for want of evidence, but was
subsequently indicted by the Grand Jury, and on Tues
day last she was arrested on a bench warrant, and re
quired to find bail in the sum of SSOO. She had a
friend in the person ot a gentleman doing business in
Nassau street, who volunteered ?to lay down “ the
ready” for her appearance, and a bond was made out,
but before it was signed au inquisitive reporter at
tempted to take some notes from it, when the indig
nant bail giver, not willing that bis name should ap
pear in such a connexion, seized the document, which
be tore to pieces, and left his fair friend still in limbo.
The prisoner pretests her innocence, and says the
whole affair has been got up by a party of conspirators
who are “ down onto her.”
Wholesale Hog Slaughter. —An exten
sive pork slaughtering establishment has been in
operation since the 7th of January last, on the margin
of the salt meadows, west of Bergen Hill, and about 3
miles from the Jersey City ferry. It Is situated near
the track of the N. Y. & Erie R lilroad. It is conduct
ed on the Cincinnati plan. Its buildings, pens and
yards^occupy about 6 acres of ground. In this con
cern, <0 men at the most, have been employed at one
time, and 100 hogs were usually.slaughtered per hour;
bnt when 1 j a h ? rr y 130 por hour could be slaughtered
and dressed. About 25.000 hogs have been killed
since the establishment commenced operations. The
hogs have come m from the west by the N. Y. & Erie
Railroad, and the pork has been chiefly disposed of in
the New York market What a squeeling must be
kept up at this place. We should judge that the
mu6t he J T ?° against any disturbance
which their little connubial responsibilities may kick
up. J
Not Exactly Sound -In the early part of
the week, a man named Robert Hanna was arrested,
Charged with selling to one George Davis a horse
affficted with the glanders. Perhaps wa. of
opinion that all is fair in a horse trade, but the law
sjys do, and makes the offence a mi-demeanor. The
bargain was coDSnmmated at the Boll’s Head and Mr
Davis gave SIOO for the animal, Mr. Hanna selling not
only the horse but .the purchaser; at least, so Mr.
Davis thought, and the accused was held to bail in
the sum of S3OO to answer. Time was when Mr. Davis
inight have bought a whole drove of horses for SIOO,
at the old horse market on the outskirts o f the city,
Eea , r tbe Tea-Water Fountain, opposite Sandy Gib
?° n .v " e have seen an animal which was considered
P? rc * las «r a "first-rater,” knocked down for
«> . .’- arj<l ve *y likely Mr. Davis might have considered
that Ins purchase was a “ 2:50” horse.

• ton Secor, an ex policeman of thia Citv occurred the
next cell to them, he being also incarnated there on
a criminal charge. This man testified that Reed con
fessed to him the crime, and gave him all the details
This witness was subjected to a very severe cross ex
ammation by Henry 1.. Clinton, Esq., counsel for Raed
Becor ; s evidence was BO much shaken by the cross-ex
amination, that rhe Judge placed but little reliance on
it Ritter was discharged some two weeks since, and
on the day above-named, on Mr. Clinton’s motion the
Judge discharged Heed.
Abbest of an "Old Hand at ide Bel
lows.”—An old offender named Jack Wiley and a
companion named Wilks, alias Forbes, were arrested
on Wednesday night, and locked np on a charge of
purloining a quantity of jewelry from the store of Sett
P. Squier, No. 182 Bowery. Soon after these worthies
were taken into court a girl named Bertha M iss, re
siding at No. 84 Elizabeth street, identified them as
the parties who on the 25th ult., entered the above
premises for the purpose of stealing, but being detect
ed by her, one of them felled her to the floor by a
blow, and both then ran off. Wiley is. suffering from
a blow he received at the hands of a . German whom
he says attacked him and robbed him of $65. He
caused the arrest of this German, but the charge was
not substantiated before the Magistrate and he was
dismised from custody.
Commissioner of Stbekts and Lamps.—The
nomination by his honor, the Mayor, of George L.
Glazier, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation
of Mr. ArenlariUs, does not seem to give satisfaction.
He is actively engaged in private business, besides
being a heavy contractor with the General Govern
ment. Under these circumstances he would not, it is
thought, devote that attention to the duties of the office
of Commissioner of Streets and Lamps, as under the
present circumstances will be required by the public
interest. We would suggest to his honor, the pro
priety of selecting a man who has no other business to
divide his attention—one who is willing to devote his
whole time to the duties of the office.
A Dangerous Thoroughfare.—The wagoa
of Mr. Henry Homage, living on the corner of Third
Avenue and 48th street, was broken on Thursday
evening, i» consequence of one of the wheels getting
into a deep rat or gully on or by the side of the Third
Avenue Bailroad at 51st street. Lieut. Colvin, of the
19th Ward police, reports that “ these accidents have
been so common of late, that they attract only a mo
ment’s notice, except to the unfortunate persons whose
property is destroyed or their lives endangered.”
Several accidents of a far worse nature than the above
have occurred at that point within the last three or
four weeks, and still the nuisance remains unabited by
the Third Avenue Bailroad Company.
A Scaly Item.—We learn that the fisher
men of Fulton Market are about to petition the Com
mon Council to allow them to remove to the Hook.
The present slip at Fnlton Market is both inconvenient
and filthy. Besides the slip is more valuable for other
purposes than the fish trade; while the point to which
the fishermen are anxious to be moved to, is on the
head of ithe pier, where the water is always fresh and
pure, and of less value for shipping, &C-, than the slip
now occupied by the fish cars. By the removal of the
fishermen to the Hook and Washington Market to
14th street, the lower part of the city will be greatly
An Ingenious Speculator CoRNERED.-For
several days past, a man of genteel appearance has
visited numerous stores on Broadway, Maiden-lane
and Pearl street, nnder the pretence of making large
purchases of goods; in most places he made the selec
tions and took bills of them, representing that his
funds weie deposited in various banks. In a house in
Pearl street he selected a large lot of hardware, and
informed the proprietor of the atom that his funds
were deposited in a certain bank. A messenger was
dispatched to the bank, who ascertained that no such
man as represented kept an account with them. The
suspected individual was then placed in charge of offi
cer Birmingham, who conveyed him to the station
house for a farther advisement.
Gentleman Kun Over.—Who wag that
gentleman who came so near being ran over by a hand
cart in Broadway, the other day ? The poor gentle ■
man was so fascinated by those elegant Spring style
bats and caps in Mealto’s window that he did not
heed the honest porter who came pushing his vehicle
hastily along the sidewalk. We are happy to say the
gentleman escaped all harm by dodging ia at the door.
We would advise others to follow his example. It is
the latest and the best dodge for any person who de
sires one of the most elegant castors which ever sat on
the top end of man. Melio is on the corner of Broad
way and Canal street.
Kobbery at Kalb Weeks’s, on Long Is
land.—Two men named Clark G. Primrose and Wm.
Stearns, were arrested on Friday, by officer Brush of
the 11th Ward Police, and Mr. Weeks, deputy U. S.
Marshall, on a charge of being concerned in robbing
the house of Mr. Caleb Weeks of Jamaica, L. L, of
money and property valued at S7OO. On searching
the accused parties after arrest, S2OO in money, one
gold watch, one silver do, seals, keys, breastpins,
rings, lockets, &c. to the amount of $275 were found
in their possession. This property is slid to be a por
tion of that stolen from Mr. Weeks, and by him iden
tified. The parties are detained by Justice Wood for
further hearing. „
Trinity Burying Ground.—We copy the
following from the Courier and Enquirer. We under
stand the fair authoress is the wife of one of the most
distinguished gentlemen in the State:
***** Poughkeepsie, Feb. 22, 1854.
Sir Sever*! of n:y ancestors ol the C and L
finely have long since besn interred ia Trinity Church
ya-d, and it is believed their ren-ains lie where the memo
rials which mark their resting place will be disturbed and
destroyed by the opening of the contemplated street
through that cemetery. I beg, therefore in behalf of my
aged mother, Mrs. Ann B , and myself, to have out
names added to the remonstrance against that proceed
ing. Yours, respectful: v, Mary C R .

Charge against the City Register.—The
law of 1847 fixed the salary of the Register and required
all fees to be paid into the city treasury. On the 31st
of last July, the act of ’47 was repealed, and the Reg
ister receiving the fees of his office was obliged to pay
his clerks, and the power to appoint his own clerks
given him. Since its passage, the Register was in re
ceipt of tho fees of the office. Toe Register stands
charged with having appropriated these fees to his o -vti
use previous to the repeal of the act of 1847. The
Comptroller, Mr. A. C. Flagg, says that, from the most
reliable information obtainable, the amount due from
the Register to the Treasury is over $28,009.
Alleged Frauds on Immigrants.—Two
idividnals who have recently been engaged. in the
forwadiyg business in Liberty and West streets were
arweted on Friday last, on a bench warrant, the grand
jury having found an indictment against them for
defranding Immigrants. It is alleged that they have
teen extensively engaged in selecting tickets pur
porting to forward Immigrants to Chicago, which have
only taken the poor victims to Cleveland. On enquir
ing for the agent to whom the prisoners referred them,
they invariably found that no such agent was to be
found. The accused were each locked up in default
of $5,000 bail.
A North Kiver Steamboat on Fire.—
About 3 o’clock on Tuesday afternoon the steamboat
Arrow, frying between New York, Nyack and Haver
straw, while on her upward trip took fire opposite
Fort Washington,and bad it not been for the fact that
the wind was light at the time, and that the bait was
shell ered by it from the hills, another Henry Clay ca
tastrophe would very likely have taken place. There
wire seme 60 passengers on board, and a considerable
alarm for a time was manifested ; but, owing to the
admirable coolness and activity of Capt. McDonald,
the. flames were soon got under, and the boat proceed
ed on her way.
Annual Ballo? the Williamsbubgh Fire
Department —The Williamsburgh Fire Department
held their annual ball at the Odeon on Wednesday
night last, when a large and highly respectable com
pany assembled who "Danced ’ah night‘till broad day
light,” when they separated without anything hav
ing happened to mar their pleasure except the
thought that time was so fleet-footed. All the ar
rangements for the comfort of those present were most
complete, and especially were the floor managers en
titled to much credit for the admirable manner in
which they discharged their arduous duties.
Rooms for United States Court.—The
tlnited States Marshal, Mr. Hilyer, has made arrange
ments, sanctioned by the Government at Washington,
to hire the building corner of College-green and Mur
ray stret, with a view to the accommodation of the
different offices connected with the view of the United
States Court, (including his own.) Judges’Cnambars,
Grand Jury rooms, &c- The building is owned by
Mr. Stevens, and the rent is to be sl6 500 a year, on
a lease for two years from the Ist of May next. The
two court rooms in the new building on the Park
will be retained with a view to the trial of casuses.
Incendiaries at Work in this City.—An
attempt was made on Thursday night to burn down
the Methodist Episcopal Church, corner of Bedford
and Morton streets. The plans of the incendiaries
were well laid ; and, had not the smoke been discov
ered by the police in time, the edifice must inevitably
have been burnt to the ground. An attempt was also
made to bum down the building situated at No. 55
Second street. The officers succeeded in extinguish
ing it, but not till the roof and the attic story were
consumed, the damage being about $1,200.
The “Tall Son of York” gone to Eu
rope.—There was a large deputation of policemen
from the 11th ward, members of the Ex Board of Ai
dermen and a number of citizens pre.sent yesterday,
at the sailing of the U. 8. Mail Steamer Baltic to wit
ness the departure of Ex Aiderman Wesley Smith
(the "tall son of York,” as be was nick named by
his colleagues) of the 11th district. The Ex City
Father intends to make a long tour over the European
continent and will probably not return to his native
soil until the latter end of the approaching summer.
Another Ward in Prospect. —Certain par
ties in Yorkville have applied to the Legislature to
create a new Ward, so as to consolidate that village,
which now lies partly in the Twelfth and partly in the
Niiieieenth, into one constituency. The proposition is,
that the new Ward shall embrace that-'portion of the
Twelfth and Nineteenth Waids lying between Sixty-
Ninth and One Hundredth streets, and between the
Sixth avenue and the East River. It is thought the
movement wili succeed, and should that be the case,
another W big Ward will be added to this city.
Contempt of Court.—A German woman
was brought before Justice Boswell at Williamsburg,
yesterday, for contempt of court. It appears that the
accused caused the arrest of a man on a charge of rape,
and afterward her Joss of character &e., was repaired
by tho payment of $9, which transaction took place
without the consent of the judge. The woman hav
ing been locked up during the night, and evidently a
"bad penny, was discharged with a reprimand, and
was expressly forbidden to make future similar com
Burglary.—During Friday night the mil
linery store of Mrs. Roberts; No. 149 Grand street,
Williamsburg, was entered by burglars, who first re
moved the shutters of the window at the side of the
building, and then cut out a large pane of glass.
The millinery arrangements were overhauled and
thrown about the floor, and a quantity of the goods
were tied up, but they finally decamped without booty.
It is supposed the burglars entered this store in mis
take for the jewelry store adjoining.
The “Safe” Game Again.—Williamsburg
is still ahead. Another flat, one of the Smith family
from Ohio, was swindled out of S2OO in that city on
Tuesday last, by two nice young men, one of whom,
who gave his name as Bennett, was arrested, but un
fortunately the one who had the dimes made his es
cape. Smith lent Bennett S2OO to bet on the little pa
per in the safe. Bennett of course lost, and Mr. Smith
was sold. When will people learn to read the papers ?
The Pardoned Policemen.— A “citizen of
the Fifth Ward” states in the Tribune of Tuesday
last, that it is whispered about among acquaintances
of Smith and Kennedy, the lately pardoned policemen,
that those two men have lately been paid about S2OO
each for services as policemen, while they were shut
up in lhe Tombs under arrest and indictment. The
writer wishes to know if it is right to apply S4OO of
the public funds in that manner.
The Burnt Clipper Ships.—The Great
Republic lies at Green Point, where she was taken
after being raised. Rumor says that she is to be fitted
up as a steam propeller. The Joseph Walker has not
yet been raised, though efforts are being made by the
Submarine Wrecking Company. The White Squall
hat been bought by Mr. A. Oakes Smith, shipping
merchantmen Pearl street, for $5,500. It is his inten
tion to fit it up as a steam tug for the use of the har
bor. Estimate for repairs is $50,000.
Abbest of a Female Burglar.—A girl
18 years of age named Theresa Welsh, was on Sunday
night detected in the butcher shop No. 443 Third
avenue, Which she had entered by means of a fabe key
for the purpose of theft. Money and mutton had pre
viously been missed from the shop, and on Sunday
night a watch was set, which resulted in the detection
oftbe thief. She confessed her guilt and was locked
up by Justice Staart.
The Reward of Merit. —The members of
the crew of the packet ship Cornelius Grinnell, who,
so bravely saved the crews of ship Columbiana and
of the British brig Frederick, are about to have a gold
medal presented to them by the Life Saving Benevo
lent Association of this city. A subscription has also
been started for the gallant fellows, donations to which
are received by Messrs. E. &W. Blunt, corner of Bur
ling slip and Water street.

Trotting on the Ice in Montreal. —The
Montreal Herald of Feb. 21 says: “A very interesting
trotting match took place a few days ago, on the ice,
from Samuel Rankin’s Point. St. Ancient, to Dundee,
& distance of fourteen miles, between the “Blue Bon
net,” owned by Sml. Rankin, and ths much renowned
American "Walk Over,” owned by Augus Mclntosh,
Esq. “Blue Bonnet” took the lead, and kept it at
bis ease, the American “Walk Over” following at
seme distance, not keeping in sight of the former the
most of the way. “Blue Bonnet” made his trip ia
fifty-one minutes, and was stabled some time when
"Walk Over” made his appearance, evidently a good
deal jaded, and the driver muon excited at the unex
pected even.”
Piscatorial Amusements.—The Buffalo
Republic says, hundreds of persons may be seen fish
ing on lhe ice iu the harbor there from one to three
miles from the shore. Holes are cut through the iee.
The fish taken are baas, catfish, pike, perch, etc.,
which, at this season of the year are of the best quali
ty, and are offered for sale in great umbers, ia this
market, at prices varying from $2 to $4 per cwt—ac
cording to the sort, size or quality of the fish.
Walking Match Against Tims.—The
Charleston Standard of Feb. 22 says: -'On Monday
last_ took place the much talked of walking match
against time. The bet being to walk six miles in fifty
seven minutes—the feat however, was accomplisehd in
the unprecedented short space of fifty five minutes fifty
six seconds, and the walker might have saved time.
The pedestrian is a young man from New York, and
is of rather slight build, but very muscular. His style
of walking ia probably the most fair ever witnessed.
The time oftbe various miles, as given by the timers,
was, 9.43, 10.03, 9.43, 8.45, 9.06, 8.46, thus making 55.
56, the three last miles being the fastest. There is
some talk about another match, to walk six miles in

New Variety of Speckled Trout.—lo

A Fish and Fowl Story.—The “ Oswego
Times” says that Mr. Alton, a fisherman, engaged the
other day at Dunkirk hauling his trout-nets, was sur
prised to discover an inhabitant of the water fastened
to them, weighing about two pounds, covered with
feathers, with small webbed-feet at the extremities, a
feattit r instead of a finny tail, and a head much resem
bling the teal duck. The apparent amalgamation of
the fish and fowl, was taken at the depth of seventy

A Black Wolf—a very rare animal in this
country—of enormous size, was recently killed by an
Indian who rejoices in the military soubriquet of Cap
tain Pete, near the head of Black Lake, on the Nation
River, Canada. The Lily says:—" The Indian had
killed, on the evening previous, a large buck; and, on
passing the spot next morning, he saw the wolf de
vouring the remains of the offal of the deer. He shot
him, and, on taking his dimensions, found that he was
thirty-two inches .high at the shoulder, and four feet
six inches long from the nose to the tip of the tail. We
have done some service to the world by killing a num
ber of wolves in our day; the largest of which, a fine
old fellow, measured no more than twenty-eight inches
high at the shoulder. Wolves are growing a great
deal more rare than they were some years ago; not
withstanding this fact, a friend of ours, who was out
deer stalking in the early part of the present winter, in
a certain part of the country with which the reader is
probably not acquainted, informed us that he saw six
wolves in full chase of a deer. With a brace of ten
inch barrelled pistols, a good double gun and toma
hawk, what sportsman would not like to take the place
of the deer ?
The Great State Stake.—The principal
topic of Conversation in the sporting circles of the
Union, at the present moment, says thespirtr ot the

next. The merits cf the various horses which are
looked on as likely to represent the different States in
tererted are freely canvassed. Opinions differ widely
in these matters, and lead to excitement, warm talk,
sad high betting on the various points presented. The
“PicayuM" says the course is in'beautiful condition,
while every arrangements for rendering it commodi
ousandelegant for the great occasion is going forward.
It appears to be the general opinion that many more

rangements to be present at the grand spectahle.
Quails.—The “Milwaukee Sentinel” says
that there have been shipped from that port for New
York, during the past game season (ending Jan. 30)
more than eight hundred and sixty dozen quails. The
greater part of them were forwarded to the large
hotels of New York. The quails are caught by entic
ing them into traps—a whole covey being frequenty
taken at A time, leaving none to propagate their race.
Such a source of wholesale slaughter must soon result
in their utter extermination.

to give it dignity. Shall I not blame you, will you not
condemn yourselt? if you in any way wilfully damage
your power to save Ireland? You did damage your
usefulness in Ireland by something of intolerant stern
ness, by a want of kindly courtesy. Say that the op
posite fault is mine, and that it is a silly one. I answer,
(assuming that my faults are of aay importance tr the
world.) that the worst effect of the filly fault is to give
trouble to the proprietor of it; while yours offends Che
weak, produces fiction among the proud, alienates all.
And our cause needed and needs the help of all—the
weak end the proud, as well as the heroes end the phi
losophers. And there is something good in every maa,
—some latent seed of heaven, that, if warmed and
cherished by the divine intLieace of patriotism, will
bud and grow into virtue.”
A Mammoth Ship in England.—The Marl
borough, 131, screw, is being rapidly built at Ports
mouth. This immense structure may be truly called
the “ Great Marlborough.” , Every day tells upon her,
as she becomes planked, in discovering at once her
beautiful mould. Her run and counter are particular
ly handsome; her bow sufficiently sharp, with the
least hollow ; and, although so handsome, she is of
enormous strength. The ucien eof the day ha- b err
brought into requisition. Pier sides—taking the outer
and inner planking with the timbers—are nearly two
feet and seven inches ia thickness. She is also tied to
gether with diagonal iron braces, besides the iron
stringing. Altogether, she will be the largest, the
handsomest, and the most powerful man-of-war, that
England or any other country has ever built, being at
least 400 tons larger than the Duke of Wellington.
The Atmospheric Telegraph.—The inven
tor of this mode of propelling packages asks of Con
gress an appropriation of $5,090 to extend his line ten
miles. He avers that packages weighing 500 lbs. can
be sent 500 miles an hour by this method of convey
ance. Of course, then, a man aud his wife might be
packed up together and sent from New York to Cape
Horn in a dozen hours. They might order supper in
the morning, by the lightning telegraph line, and ar
rive in time to eat it.
Perfumery. —At a large perfumery of
Grasse, in France, there are annually consumed 80,000
lbs. of orange blossoms, 60,000 lbs. of cassia flowers,
54,000 lbs. of rose leaves, 32,000 lbs. of jessamine blos
soms, 35,000 lbs. of violet flowers, 20,000 lbs. of tiebe
roses, 16,000 lbs. Of lilac flowers, besides rosemary,
mint, lavender, thyme, lemon, orange, and other odor
ous plants in like proportions. The cost of the whole
is more than four millions of francs.
Slow Work.—The schooner Othello has
arrived at this port with a load ot lumber, 160 days
from Cutler, Maine. The news that she brings from
that part of the country will probably prove an in
teresimg relic of antiquity. She was abandoned off
Cape Cod, where she was picked up and carried into
Edgartown. Her history since that event is not re
corded at length.
Burnt Steel'.—Mr. Malberg, of Prussia,
proposes to regenerate burnt steel by heating it to a
red heat, and putting it, when in that state, into boil
ing water. Repeated experiments, instituted at the
Roval Polytechnic School, and at the Royal Mint, at
Berlin, have proved perfectly successful.
White Silk.—By crossing silk-worms, a
Polish count, named Bruno Bronski, has discovered a
process by which he obtains silk of a splendid white
ness. He has received brilliant offers to make known
his secret to the Russians, but has refused to do so.
He has offered it to the India Company.

The Life Balsam is equally efficacious in the most violent
AND MERCURIAL DISEASES. The following certificates
will conclusively show that there is no medicine which can
compare with this powerful, safe, and certain purifying agent
and that it ha« also cured the very worst cases of CANCER,
Mr. J. Snyder, 211 Gold street, Brooklyn, was a helpless crip
ple for nearly sixteen years. His limbs and joints were thtown
out of their natural positions and sbape. He could obtain no
sleep, except from opium or morphine. After he had spent au
ample fortune in drugs, medical Attendants and Joss of busi
ness, he was restored to his health and to business by four bot
t’es of the Life Balsam.
The Hon. J.V. D. Fowler, 188 Stanton etreet, was for a long pe
riod as tortured a victim of Rheumatism as has ever survived its
dreaaful effects upon the system. His limbs at length became
swollen to twice their natural size, and he was fast sinking under
the disease. He testifies that after all else had failed, he was
perfect cured by the Life Balsam in a verv short time.
B. , 32 Grove street, was for more than a year no 30-
verel/Kfiffcted, that he hud to abandon his business, and w w
soox unable to walk or rent bis foot upon tbe ground. His lejs
and joints were swollen to double their'natural slse. and he was
except through opium or more powerful drugs. Mr. Rice visited
the Springs, and had the best medical advice, but could obtain
no relief un it the LIFE BALSAM came to his a'd A few bot
suffered any otter attack, though two years have since elapsed.
Tbe grand-daughter of Mr. Jones, 153 Nassau ct„ Brooklyn,
was affl eted with Scrofula iu the neck. Someof theu’cers pen
etrated to the windp’pe.
Mrs. Burton, 12/ Eldridge street. —This lady has suffered for
years, until life became intelerable; some of the ulcershad

Mr. Jo-'n T. Diossy, Law Bookseller. 1 Nassan-st , corner of
Wall, who was devoured by horrible ulcers for 18 months, was
cured in almost as many davs.
Horace J. Gardner was 11 years afflicted with this dreadful
scourge. The disease had entirely destroyed his nose, and was
reaching nearly to the eyes, when he was induced to try the all
conquering Lite Balsam. A few bottles entirely healed every
ulcer, and restored the sufferer to perfect, health.
For proof of this great and unequalled cure, ths afflicted a- e
referred to his Honor Mavor Westervelt, before whom Mr. Gard
ner appeared and made affidavit on the 30th of June last, ex
hibiting his dreadfully disfigured, but perfectly healed, fea
Mr. N. Jacobs, whose place ot easiness is at No. 5 Market st.,
was long afflicted with the raest obstinate kind of scrofula, in
the form of dangerous old ulcers, which resisted and defied the
best medical skill, until Mr. Jacobs had recourse to the purify
ing. all healing Life Balsam, which soon removed every vestige
of this loathsome disease, restoring him to excellent health.
Capt. W. I. Brown, 97 Prince street, was a great sufferer from
this torturing disease At times he was confined to his room
and bed for weeks together. He was under treatment by the
very best physicians, and had to submit to an operation of the
surgeon’s knife, but all failed to eradicate the disease, until he
resorted to the LIFE BALSAM, a few betties of which perfectly
cured him.
Hyatt’B Life Balsam is daily curing the worst cases of these
complaints. It cured Mr. J. H. Goodwin of pain in the side,
breast, and spitting of blood, after he had been afflicted for
years, and was reduced to the last stage of weakness, and con
sidered beyond the roach of medicine. Mr. Godwin’s office is at
114 Elizabeth street. He is now in the enjoyment of perfect
health. Let the afflicted oall and see him.
Mr. A. H. Parker, 197 Centro street, was afflicted with dis
tressing cough, raising blood, pain in the breast, night sweats,
Ac. He was restored to perfect health by the Life Balsam.
In Asthma, it must here suffice to mention tbe case of MISS
COLE, a young lady, the daughter of Mr. Obediah Cole, 218
Third Avenue, who, for years required almost constant watch
ing in expectation of strangulation, and in whom thia disease,
although inherited from infancy, was entirely eradicated in a
few months. Let this and all oiher cases be put to the test of
personal inquiry, for the LIFE BALSAM is left to stand or fall
by this fair method of proof.

own about 200 acres of choice land in the vicinity of tbe de
lightful village of New Rochelle, on the New Haven Railroad.
The lands are elevated, and command a fine view of Long
Island Sound, and the surrounding country.
There are on the lands of Petersville several fine living springs,

This treatment for Consumption, Bronchitis, and Asthma was
introduced irto the United States by Dr. R. Hunter in 1851
It consists in reducing medicines to a condition of vapor and
inhaling them into the lun .-s. The temady is applied directly to
toe difeased organ. It does not impair the appetite or impede
digestion. It a tacks the disease at its very seat, renders tie ex
pectoration easy, re 1 eves shortness of breath, and by it.-* cheering
success, has estab i-hed the curabil ty of consumption-, even
after cavi.iesare formed in the lungs. Drs. R. &J. Hunter de

of a letter from a gentleman in Dayton, Ohio :]—“Dayton,
May 1, 1852. Dr. A. H. Mauriceau, No. 129 Liberty-st. :—My
Dear Sir:—My wife has been perceptibly sinking for some
three years or more, in consequence of her great anguish and
Buffering, some months before and during her confinement—
every successive one more and more debilitating and prostrating
her, and patting her life in Imminent danger, and which was,
on the last occasion, despaired of. I supposed this state of things
was inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst. At this
time, (now about two months) I heard your book highly spoken
of, as containing some matters reaching my case. On its receipt
and perusal I cannot express to you the relief it afforded my
distressed miad, and the joy its pages imparted te my wife, on
learning that the great discovery of M. M. Dasomeux provided
a remedy. It opeued a prospect to me which I little conceived
was possible. But for this, ere another year would have passed
over my head, In all human probability my wife would have
been in her grave, and my children motherless.” It is of course
Impracticable to convey more fully the serious subjects treated
of, as they are of a nature strlcUy intended for the married, or

SgF- Hair Restorative,— Pbalon’g Hair In
vlgorator, to restore the Hair, to cure effectually Dandruff, Scurf!,
Trill be paid by E. Phalon, to any person who can produce a Hair
Invigorator which can equal his an a beautiful and healthy restor
ative of the Hair. This truly valuable Hair restorative has bean
before the citizens of
over 20 years; during which time it has given the most perfect
satisfaction, and superseded«all other so-called Hair Restoratives,
Invigerators, ±o., many of which are in the dark bosom of obli
vion buried. Hundreds in the city of
have cars® to'rejoice that they were induced to try one single
bottle of Phalon’s Hair Invigorator, having triad most every
thing recommended for the hair, without deriving any benefit
whatsoever. Phalon’s Hair Invigorator not only prevents
but by its use preserves it to extreme old age. For infant? and
sbildren, whose Lair may seem weak or thin, their mothers can
apply nothing better. It removes the scurf, which is so apt to
cause weakness of the hair in
tnd which, If neglected, continues to render ths roots of thekalr
less productive the faster they advance to age. Ladies will find
the Invigorator a great addition to the toilet, but en account of
Ito delicate and
end ’the 'great facilities it affords in dressing the hair, which,
when moist with the Invigorator, can be dressed in any required
form, so an to preserve its place, whether plain or in curb. Prof.
i£. Phalon would again remark, when used on
it lays the foundation for a good head of hair, and would also
state it bats restored the hair when hundreds of dollars has been
expended in vain upon other preparations. It afao dresses
keeps it soft, silken and clean, thrice as long as any other prepa
ration. It will thange the harshest hair into the most healthy,
glossy state—imparting to it a most beautiful dark color—keep
ing both the skin and hair in a healthy and luxuriant state, until
tti© latest period of life.
From the N. Y. Tribune.—We know of no compound for the hair
wirieb, ae far m our experience goes, can -equal Phalon’s Chemical Hair
Invigorator. There is no remedy for the permanent cure of baldness, and
diseases ef the heed genrally, that has reached the popularity enjoyed by
this article. It imparts vigor to the roots of the hair, and promotes ita
growth to t>. rem&rmible degree. Judge Edwards, of Philadelphia, a man
over seventy years of age, Che top of whose head was as bald as one’s
hand two mouths since, has now the hair giowing fast by its esc. There
are many others, whose names we are not at liberty to give, whose hair
has been restored by Phalon’s Invigorator.
From the N. Y. Ssu.—A young gentleman, a friend of ours, living in
Bleecker at., wae attacked with fever—the hair on the top of his head was
dried off—the sides were covered with old, rusty, dry hair, filled with
dandruff j he has at this time a beautiful head, of hair from the use of Pha
lon’s Hair Invigorator.

J. PEOA.RE, Proprietor, 163 Hester-st
Barker’s Cheveaxtonique.—The propri
etor of this article, during seventeen years experience in the art
of ladies’ hair dressing, has never found, among all that is sold
under the name of “ restoratives,” “regenerators,” 4c., any
thing that would restore the hair upon a lady’s head after it had
fallen off. It is comparatively easy to produce this effect upon
gentlemen, from the fact that the frequent cutting of their hair
strengthens it; but a lady’s tresses, which are never subjected to
the tonsorial scissors, may fade, wither, decay, and fall off, and
there is nothing to restore them to their original luxuriance.
There are preparations, to be sure, which may force out a few
stray locks, but they present “ a lean and ragged Took,” which x
detracts rather than adds to the personal anpearanee.
was produced by the proprietor after mucn experimenting, to
supply this important desideratum, and give to the ladies an ar
ticle which would induce so powerful a growth as to impart all
the original power and vigor to the scalp. In effecting this, it
of course became necessary to combine with it medicinal proper
ties for removing the complaints to which the head is subject,
for, after all, baldness is but a disease, and not, as many people
suppose, the necessary result of increasing yokrs. Hence the
Chevxuxtonique was so compounded as to be a sure eura for
Ringworm, Tetter, Scald Head, Headache, Incipient Erysipe
las, Inflamed Skin, and indeed all other diseases which affect the
It will cure the Headache in the shortest possible time, as also
eradicate Dandruff, and, by being free from all grease, does not '
clog up the roots where the delicate fibres of the hair first start;
but does what is all important, keeps them free and open, and
>hus producing in a short time a soft, delicate, and glossy cover
ing to the head as rich and lustrous as youthful locks.
One bottle is sufficient to prove its superiority over every other
article at present used fora similar purpose.
No preparation has ever been presented to the public which
combines such extraordinary qualities as this—so wonderful and
yet so simple that all are surprised it had not*’ been thought of
before. It recommends itself at once to all who use it, putting
to flight all the nostrums and thousand and one humbugs of the
General depot at Barker’s Ladies’ Hair Dressing saleon, No.
439 Broadway, and sold at all respectable druggist and fancy
stores. »

—A perfect Liquid Dye, instantaneous, permanent and harmless,
for coloring the Hair, Whiskers, and Moustaches, to any desired
shade, from a light brown to a jet black'. It will not injure the
hair or stain the skin, can be used without regard to time or
weather, and is free of all the objections found in other dyes—
ench-HB oad odor, turning red, impermanence, 4c. The chemical
affinity of this liquid for the hair is astonishing; the instant it is
applied, quick as an electrio spark, the color is sot, and is im
moveable, even if wp-’hed immediately. If the ladies knew how
much this Dye adds to their beauty when applied to their oye
bt oks, not one would be without it. Price", 75 cents per box.
The subscriber also applies the Dye at his Hair Drossing Room,

£££- Bciuonct & Meyer’s lu'allible Liquid
HAIR DYE.—This is a new article just presented to the public.
The proprietors have made the human hair the study of their
lives, and having had occasion to use the thousand and one spe
cifics which ignorant charlatans palm upon the public, they are
enabled to judge of their injuriousness. After the invention of
the present Dye, they for a long while, content to satisfy their
own customers, made use of it only in their own business ; but
i‘s merits becoming known, ihey were absolutely compelled to
bring it before the public. Here it has been but a short time,
yet its success has been unprecedented. Requests for the ap
pointment of agents for its sale have poured in by every mail,
while the orders for the article itself hare almost exceeded the
ability of the proprietors to supply. Its merits may be curtly
summed up as follows: It is easily applied, and can ba used by
all wit ho'it danger, full directions accompanying each bottle.
It does not color the hair by scorching, like other preparations,
but acts upon It by a newly discovered chemical power. Recent
researches show that the hair is triangular, and in its natural
state possesses all the powers of the prism. To restore this pris
matic virtue is the theory of this Hair Dye. It also gives the
fibres tneir soft and glossy texture, and protects the sacs in which
all of them terminate It does not stain the skiu, and is the only
compound of the kind upon which perfect teliance can be placed,
as it never fails in giving a beautiful and natural black or brown
color io the hair,, whiskers or eyebrews.
The proprietors are prepared to furnish , it in large or small
quantities. Price $1 and $1 50 per bottle according to size.
Liberal deduction to those who buy to sell again.
In answer to the numerous inquiries from every part of the
country, Messrs. D 4 M. would say that if there be no agent
who sells their Dye in the vicinity where the party wishing it
rss’des, by inclosing Si a bottle will he forwarded. Persons
sending requests for the agency of it will please state plainly the
place or district in which they wfrh to dispose of it.

J.PAGNE —The undersigned respectfully request the atten
tion of dealers, and the public gen rally, to the merits of thia
superior wine. Although it has been but lately introduced, un
de; its present designation, yet a discriminating public have
already discovered in it an old standard and highly approved
wine. Th? present proprietors,
with an honorable delicacy, ' not wishing to .encroach upon the
purchased privileges of another bouse, have successfully endea
vored to establish for it a position in the name of the senior
partner, Charles Heidsieck, under which brand it will continue
to be known.
We would lfe?ro state, that the comparative consumption of
this wine, sinAs ita introduction, has exceeded that of any other
brand now in vogue, with a constantly increasing demand.
P. S.—lMPOßTANT —Connoisseurs of Champagne Wine are
respectfully notified that the genuihe wines from, the above
house are branded “Charles HiedsiecK,” in full n the'abel,
and that all other wines assuming the same name are not genu
ine. The baskets of Charles Heidsieck have also a distinct
mark, as follows : “Chs. H.,” with four red stripes of willow
onrihe cover. This change from “C H.” to “Chs. H.” ought to
be especially observed, in consequence of the appearance of
baskets in the American market bearing initials resembling
their own. A careful observance of these marks will prevent
all mistakes. T. W. BAYAUD 4 CO.,

Fcr about eight, years I have hem feve.relv f.filic ed with
the Asthma; f r the ia>t two years I hare suffered beyoneial
my powers of description; months at a time I have not been able
fo sleep in a bed, getting what, I could sitting in try chair.
My difficulty of breathing, and my sufferings, were so great at
times, thr.t lor hours together m,. friends expected eaoh hour
would be my last. During the p-ist s : x years 1h ve h;«d’he aid
and attertaai.ee of soma of celebrated phy deians. but
received no permanent benefit, and but iitt e relief. I
length had the gaod fortune to procure Dr. Curtis’s II- geana or
Inbalii g Hyg. an V*-por aud Cherry Syrup. At the time I firs
obtained it. I was suffering under one of my most violent attacks,
site was in great distress, almost tuff eating for want of breath.
In less than ten minutes from the time I applied the Inhaler to
my stomach, and took a teaspoonful ef the Cherry Syrup, I w&-
relieved in a great measure from the difficulty of breathing, and
had a comfortable night. I have since continued it with the
greatest possible benefit ai dsm now comparatively well. God
only knows the amount of seffering this medicine lias relieved
me from. My advice to the snfferix.g is—try it.

obtained a package, which I veril believe was the means of
saving my l ie. Soon after wearing the Inhaler, I found it re

made its appearance upon the surface under the Inhaler. I took
the Cherry Syrup as directed, and continued to do so, my cough
gradually growing better, until it enti-ely left me, and I now

is rather pleasant, and believing it strengthening and purifying
