We understand that a horrible murder was committed, in Monroe township, in this county, on Saturday, the 10th inst. The facts, as we are informed by Esq. Mack, who lives in the vicinity are about as follows : On the evening the murder was committed, Thomas Hensley, the murdered man, and M. Flanery, the murderer, both Irishmen and la borers on the Steubenville and Indiana Rail Road, were together drinking, and both some what intoxicated. Some difficulty occurred be tween them, whereupon Hensley went out of the house, and was followed by Flanery, who pioked up an axe and struck him on the head, mashing the skull he also out through the skull with the edge of the axe three or four times killing him instantly. He then fled and has not been taken. The murdered man apd the murderer both have families. Intemperance, unquestionably, was the sole canse of this murder, and the man who sold the liquor to these individuals, in violation to the laws of the State, must feel that the blood of the murdered man is upon his kirls; and if he has any conscience, the cries of the widow and orphan children will haunt him for all the to come, Cadis Republican. r FHUM EUROPE, 4 R V1LOF T i.

It is expected that the Russians will have, on the IStb of February, an army of 110,000 men in (he Crimea. Much discontent is manifested, and the peo ple are clamorous against Prince Menchikoff. The Court circle do net defend him. His excess ive prudence his total want of 'hat perilous quality which impels a General to do rush aud daring things, is hotly condemned. Osten Sacken and Liprandi are named as the Chiefs for the Crimea. Everybody is declared to be for war, and wai to the knife in Russia. Intense suffering is experienced by the sol diery in the Crimea.

Mr. Roebuck moved for a select oommHttiti In tha House of Commons to enquire Into UUs SSjbjSOt, md into llie conduct of ttiose departments of the Government whose duty it was to minister to the wants of the army. The motion created intense feeling both in the House and out of it. Amid profoundest siN-nce, the President tf the Couiie'l, Lord John Russel rose, to state Mb) be resjgnjd I" office Such amotion could be resisted upon two rounds first that at) evil existed ot such magnitude as to call tor inquiry, secondly, that it such evils did exist, they would be best cured by other means. With regard to the first, no one, Lord Joliu Russel thought, could deny the melancholy con dition of our ai pay at Sevastopol, or oppos" any measure likel to cure or mitigate the evil Not In lag able to deny the existence of the evil, he could uoi, en thatgr and, induce tho House to 1 1 -ist the motion, aud he eras not in a posi tion to give u faint 'uo,' or to meet the motion evasively; it was his duty to stand in the front of the battle, uit.niull taking his part in oppos ing the appointment of a committee. As early as Nov. 17th, he (Lord John us- sel,) had pressed Lord Aberdeen, in a conti dential manner, to make Lord Palmerston Sec retary of War, without casting any blame up on the Duke of New Castle. He failed. Then the question was, whether he should re sign; Lord Palmerson protested; he consented to remain in office, pointing out the changes which he deemed indispensable to remedy the evils eomptained of. In dealing with the motion of Mr. Roebuck, he (Lord John Russell,) was, however, bound to reflect whether he could fairly and houeslly say, 'It is true evils do exist, but such arrange ments have been made that all deficiencies and abuses will be immediately remedied,' and could not honestly or without betraying the confidence reposed in him m ake that statement He considered that he could come to only one conclusion that, as he was unable to give the only answer that would stop inquiry, it was his duty not to remain a member of the uov ernment. Accordingly, on the 23d of January he placed in the hands of Lord Aberdem his resignation, which was accepted by her Maj esty, Lord John Russell said there were important rumors afloat. It was said, and believed that the Duke of Now Castle will become President of the Council in room of Lord John Russell. Lord Palmerston is to be War Minister in place of the Duke of New Castle; and Mr. Syd ney Herbet will be Home Secretary, in place of Lord Palmerston. If so, said Lord John Rus sel in conclusion, ho was glad that his retire ment had contributed to the change, and that the Seals of the War department were in the hands of Lord Palmerston. The speech was manly, and produced a profound sensation. In the House of Lords, Thursday, January 25, Lord Lyndhurst gave notice that on Fri day, the 21st of February, he would move the following jesohuion; I hat in the opinion of this House the expedition to tne Crimea was undertaken by her Majesty's government with very indequate mrans, and without due cau tion q- sufficient inquiry into the nature and ex tent of the resistance to be expected from the enemy; and that the neglect and mismanage ment of the government in the conduct of the fARROLLON.

The Asia arrived here at half past one this morning and sailed again at three, lor Boston, where she will be due early to morrow after noon. Liverpool dates to the 31st. On the 4th the Asia saw the steamers City of Manchester and Baltic, bound bo.h to Liv. erpool. The most important feature of the news was the resignation of the British ministry, which took place on the 30th , they having been de leated by a majority of 189, upon Mr. Roe buck's motion of a want of conBdence and di recting nn inquiry into the stntc of the British army before Sevastopol and the departments of' Government, praying change thereof. The Queen sent for Lord Derby, but he waR unable to form a ministry, and rumor pointed to Lord Palmerston, Lord Russell, Lord Clar endon, and the Marpuis of Landsdale as the most lucky man. In Parliament, the bill to give effect to the Reciprocity treaty, was read a second lime. The English fleet is ordered to assemble in the Downs, ready for sea, the first week in March. Rumor says that Admirals Seymour and Martin would command. In the Crimea there has been no fighting of importance. The supplies are increasing and the condition of the troops improving.
