proposal, and also the coal bunkers, must be incln
uccL
All the wood and carpenter work necessary to
adapt the vessel for the reception of the engines,
boilers, propellers, Ac., will be at the expense of the
Aavy Department, and it will furnish the usual fa
^hUes and labor for hoisting tno machinery on
For the accommodation of the entire steam ma
chinery with fuel for ten days' consumption, at the
average speed, at a load draft of water of 23 fest, in- i
eluding the keel, a length not to exceed 60 feet can
be allowed in the body of the ship, including the en
tire space under the birth deck. The greatest
breadth of this space under the beam will be 47 ft i
and the height from the timbers to the bottom of
the beam 17 ftet; the area of the section being 662
square feet.
The weight of all the steam machinery, water in j
the honors and coal within the space given, and in-1
ii e propeller and shaft, with appendages of]
all kinds an t spare pieces, has been estimated at 735
tons ot 2,240 pounds ot which 350 tons is for coal.
The distance between the main stern-post, and
the rudder post may be six feet, if that l*n-th is ne
cesaary for the propeller iu a fore-an 1 aft direction, i
and the depth trom the load w.ter line to the top of
the k*el under the propellwr will be 21 feet. The

As auxiliary steam frigates the spars and rigging
will be those of a frigate of the first class, of 1 SOO
tons measurement. '
The particular arrangement of the machinery will
be left with those whose propositions may be accept
ed as combining the greatest number of advantage
the desire of the department bHng to obtain the
meatest speed and power with the most economical
consumption of fuel, which the space available for
that purpose will admit.
The terms of payment will be as follows: when
one-third of the work provided for by the contract
shall have been completed to the satisfaction of the
department, there shall be a payment of one-fifth of
the whole amount of the contract; when two-thirds
of the work shall, in like manner, be completed,
there shall be a further payment of one fifth. when
the ship shall have made a trial trip, satisfactory to
the department, of not les* than one week at sea,
there shall be a further payment cf one fifth; and
when the ship fhall have been in possessirn of the
department, and performed satisfactorily for six
months, the remaining sum shall be paid; the re
pairs necessary during this period, from defective
workmanship and material, being at the expense of
the contractor.
Each proposal must specify the ship for which
the oder is made, and must be accompinied by full
and complete specifications and drawing, which, if
desired, will be returned o those whose offers may
not brt accepted. It must also be stated at what es
tablishment the work is to be done.
Each proposal must be accompanied by a guaran
I-^i^ contract, when awarded, will be faith
fully performed, and the successful bidders will be
required to enter into security for that purpose in
the sum of three-fourths the amount of the contract.

The Portsmouth (\ a.) Transcrijtt says:
The work-shop can furnish as good
legislators as the law office. Indeed, we
have ever been among the number who
believe that lawyers should never be leg
islators. " Simple justice " is the life of
society and nations ; and we look for it
sooner in the graduate of the toil-house
than of the college hall. Learning mys
tifies. Plain practical common sense
grasps " the greatest good to the great
est number."
In the House of Representatives at
Washington, there are two hatters?
Floekngb of Philadelphia, and Vaxsant
of Baltimore. Men of the people, who
are active and uncompromising in their
devotion to popular rights?to our glo
rious Union, and to the interests of their
immediate constituents.
The Hon. Joshua Vansant, the able
and deservedly popular representative
from Baltimore, took the Ilouse by sur
prise last week with his forcible and el
oquent remarks on an item ij? the Appro
priation bill. Like the most distin
guished members of the Continental Con
gress? who were workers and not talkers,
Mr. Vansant has done ? the State some
service'' in the morning and midnight
investigation of the Committee room?
those little side chambers?intellectual
44 pigeon holes " in the great Capitol?
where, in fact, nearly all the legislation
of Congress is determined. Although a
handsome speaker?fluent, rich, and pow
erful?always ready in debate, and ever
convincing, because of his directness and
sledge-hammerishness of style?yet he
has abstained from addressing the Ilouse,
until now, when a practical proposition
is presented, lie comes out sensibly and
eloquently to the sui prise and admira
tion of his three hundred fellow members
who know not what rare merit in him
was overlaid by rare modesty. This re
minds us of an incident that occurred on
board the cars returning from Wheeling
on the opening of the Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad, of which Mr. Vansant
is one of the influential Directors.?
On that occasion, a large number of
the members of the Legislature of Vir
ginia were the guests of the Railway Com
pany, and they were placed under the
protection of Mr. Vansant, who had been
deputed to cause the wants of the Vir
ginians not to be overlooked. His atten
tions up to Wheeling and back were of
the most delightful character: and so sin
cere was the gratitude felt towards Mr.
\ ansant, that a spokesman was appoint
ed to return him the thanks of the Vir
ginia delegation. Born in eloquence, as
the Virginians are, there was no difficul
ty of course, in procuring an elegant ex
pression of thanks. The cars were rush
ing through the gorges of the Allegany,
at a speed of twenty miles an hour. Mr.
Vansant was called and placed at one
end of the car, and the spokesman at the
opposite. It was an impromptu alfair
entirely, and of course without prepare-!
fir.n. At the conclusion of the \ lrgima
address, there was snmp little embarrass
ment lest thej had placed Mr. Vansant
in a position of awkwardness in the mat
ter of a reply. The astonishment and
delight were unbounded, and the applause
itimense, when Mr. Vansant showed
them, at the first sentence, that he was
as used, as the best of them, "to speak
ing in public on the stage." He was em
braced instantly: and doubtless that in
cident has been repeated, and is this day
freehly remembered, in almost every
county in the good Old Dominion."
We know both the gentlemen named
in the above extract well. Of Mr. Van
sant the half that is meritorious has not
been told : but of that, more anon.
Mr. Florence, or " Tom Florence," as
he is familiarly called by those who are
intimate with him, is by far the most
popular Democrat in his district?and de
servedly so. He is a mechanic?a hat
ter?and since he has been placed in the
position of a representative of the people,
he has not forgotten and passed negli
gently by those among whom he once
bved and moved. When he is at home?
it matters not what position in life the
men fill who meet him?he has a joyous I
greeting and a kind word for everybody. I
When at Washington, he attends prompt
ly to the most trilling wants of the hum
blest of his constituents. He is seldom
away from his post, and always ready
to vote and speak for every bill, and on
every question that has the least bearing
upon the interests of the toiling masses
from whose midst he sprung.
Party aside, the wording men of the
First Congressional district of Pennsyl
vania cannot have a better representative
in Congress than Thomas B. Florence.
SUICIDE 0? TWO L0VEB6
[From tfie Boston Journal, J?ly 11, 1&54.J
A suicide, attended with circumstances
of a singular character, occurred this
morning in East Abington, the particu
lars of which, as we learn, are as follows :
It seems that a young man named Isaac
P. Nash, a native of Pembroke, but a
resident of East Abington, and a young
ladv named Adriana Sampson, belonging
in Stoughton, uad formed an attachment
for each other, but from some cause or
other, they were prevented from being
united in the holy boads of wedlock.?
The young lady was in this city on a
visit to an aunt, and appeared in excel
lent health and spirits. In the afternoon
she returned to her home in Stoughton,
and towards evening her lover, Mr. Nash,
hired a horse and chaise in East Abing
ton, and proceeding to Stoughton, took
Miss Sampson to ride. This was the
last that was seen of them alive, so far
as is yet known.
About five o'clock this morning, Mr.
John Sears, who tends Reeds Mill, in
East Abington, discovered a horse and
chaise, (which was since proved to be the
one hired by Mr. Nash) standing near
the mill, the horse being tied and care
fully covered with a Buffalo robe. On
the fence near the chaise, Mr. Sears also
found two shawls and a bonnet, which
have since been identified as belonging
to Miss Sinpann ; and near by the same
P>P*v. Prtf* fain Ci
P
of twmiv prr
spot, he also found Mr. Nwh'fl h*t, iR
wkich was the following note:
44 My name is Isaac P. Narii. In this
water you will God me. I am a perfect
ly sane m*n.
P. S.?Bury us both together as you.
find us. Isaac r. Nas*.
Mr. Sears, upon disoovering theso
things, went at once to the mill pood and
.soon discovered the bodies of Mr. Nash
and Miss Sampson in about seven or eight
feet of water, with their arms cnoifchag
each other's necks, and their wrists and
arms firmly bound together with a stout
cord. He immediately drew the bodies
from the water, and Coroner Reed was
called to hold an inquest thereupon. Cir
cumstances are know n which render it
very probable that the act was committed
after 12 o'clock last night.
M<?KK ABOUT THE SUICIDE.
[From llic Bonton Journal, July 1*2, 1854. J
In addition to the particulars published
in the Journal yesterday, relative to the
suicide of Mr. Kasli and Miss Sampson,
in East Abington yesterday morning, we
learn that the deceased were seen walk
ing together, apparently in a contempla
tive mood, between the hours of one and
two o'clock yesterday morning, on the
margin of the j?ond in which they were
subsequently found drowned. The fol
lowing is a copy of the letter left by Miss
Sampson, in her chamber in Stoughton :
" SrotGTrrov.
4 4 My Dear Friends: It is with my right
mind that I write these lines, also that
which I am going to do. I am tired of
this world, and so is my own dear friend,
so I must say that tomorrow morning I
shall be in another world; but, dear
friends, I thank you for your kindness
towards me, which has been very great,

keeping company with Miss Sampson,
who is of about the same age, and who,
as we are informed, was a young woman
of superior worth. Yesterday afternoon,
Nash hired a horse and chaise at East
\bington. informing the proprietors that
he should not come back himself, but
that he would send the carnage back,
lie then drove over to Randolph where
Miss Sampson was visiting, after having
left Pembroke in the morning, and re
turned from a visit to Boston in the fore
noon, and taking her in, drove back to
East Abington, where the horse was this
morning found tied to a fence, and the
bodies found in the pond as before stated.
A Max Lost.?In the town of N ,
some years, there lived a half-witted per
sonage, who flourished under the eupho
nious name of Zephaniah Shurtleef. He
followed no particular business, but used
to roam around as fancy or caprice dic
tated. In the Summer, and early in the
Autumn, he was in the habit of going
out on lurrying excursions, sometimes by
the roadside, at other times in some more
distant locality. On one of the expedi
tions, either because his faculties wett?
more than usually clouded, or from so no
other c??use, he was unable to find the
way home. A neighbor, of whose presence
he was not aware. hea-d him calling out,
at the top of his voioe, in the following
amusing strain?
"I'm lost! I'm lost! My name is Ze
phaniah Shurtleef, and I'm married to
Nancy Parker. I m lost! Come and
tind me, away down in the huckleberry
pasture?close by the great rock?side of
the old oak tree. I'm lost. Come and
find me!"
It is needless to say that his pathetic
appeal received due attention, and the
consort of Nancy Parker was restored.
A Devoted Mixistkh.?The Rev. Dr.
Tucker, rector of St. Geoqje's church, in
Bermuda, buried upwards of 300 victims
of yellow fever during the months of
September and October last. He admin
istered to the greater portion of these
persons such consolations of religion as
the appalling brevity and violence of their
illness i>crmitted; he frequently performed
the funeral service, during the hottest
hours of the day, over bodies for which,
from want of time and rapidity of de
composition, it was impossible to pro
cure coffins; he was detained in a j*estifer
ous burial ground sometimes till after
midnight, and had for many successive
days to resume his mournful task at sun
rise; during all this period he continued
to perform divine service, and to preach
four times every Sunday, besides, attend
ing to the soldiers in the hospital, and
the prison during the week.
Compositiox Roofs.?The Worcester
(Massachusetts) Spy says: An expen-,
ment was made on the grounds of W m.
T. Merry Held, Friday afternoon, to test
the value of the composition (tar. gravel.
Ac.,) roofs as a guard against fire. A
building had been prepared for the pur-'
]>ose, on the roof of which a fire was
built, of dry materials, which burnt out
without setting the roof on fire. Fir* '
was then set to the building, and it was
burnt down with the coating of the roof
nearly as perfect as before the lire. The
experiment was considered, by thos*
present, a very satisfactory one.
