3?1*IT OF THX HORHIKQ PEXM
The Intetlixmnetr rejoiced over the ratifiea
tion of the Ruaaian treaty, and urges the en
actment -,f the bill to pay the creditors of the
ex-Republic of Texas in full oet of the Treaa
ury of the United States.
Tho Union defends the last Democratic
National Convention against a charge of the
livening Post, that when they (the last Dem
ocratic National Convention) accepted and ap
proved a portion of th* resolutions of '93 and
'99, that result was brought about in order to
commit the Democratic party to the principle
of nullification, and that oertain secession lea
ders affected it to prepare the way for a dissoiu
tion of the Union. Arguing to show that the
Committee on Resolutions, by an overwhelm
ing majority, refused to give any snob reading
ss the Post alleges, the organ says that?
" Du-ing the sitting of the committee on
resolutions at the last National Convention of
the Democratic party at Baltimore, that com
uiitice by a veiy deoided vote, refused to place
any such construction as is n;w placed upon
the resolution by such enemies of the Union
its are represented by the Post A very able
uebate look place in the committee at the time;
oue or two members contending that the prin
ciple of secession was maintained in a portion
of the resolutions of '93 and '9V, but the over
whelming majority taking the grounds that
the** obvious meaning and import" of those
resolutions contemplated no such contingency
as dissolution and secession, but that in adopt
ing and endorsing them the democratic party
was called upon to recognise them only in the
sense in which :hoy bare always been under
stood and practised by the fathers and frameis
of the constitution itself "

New York peper says :
?* It is a mistake to suppose there are no
wealthy citisens in Washington. There are a
large number of rich men here, who have be
enuM. su by the rite of real estate caused by
the .heraJityof the government expenditures.
Mr Todd, the hatter, in Brown's lfotel. is ea
tima ed to be worth a million; George Parker,

which show? a very high average per capita

In addition to the above we have to add the
name of Mr. Corcoran. Mr. C. must be worth
at least a million and a half. J. C. Mc3uire,

Eacceu of the Spanish Revolutionists ?
Letters reached two different Legations (for
eign) in thia city this morning, eomiog by the
laat Liverpool steamer, which make it posi
tively certain that the telegraphic dispatches
published in England, concerning the progrers
of the Spanish revolution, ar# wholly decep
tive. The truth i?, O'Donnell'a career, up to
the very last adviecs in Paris, had been re
markably successful indeed. Wherever Lis
adherent* had risen?as they had done in many
more places than tho telegraph told cf?they
had so far maintained themselves trium- I
phantly. The impression in English and
French Government circles, when the steamer
sailed, certainly was, that his aims were most
likely to be speedily accomplished. |
The Bogus Earl of Selkirk.?Among the
rumors of the hour on the Avenue, ia one
searcely to be credited, saying that the claim
of the Mr. Humphreys (who now calls himself!
Alexander) to be the Earl of Selkirk, and.
therefore, entitled to the Selkirk estates and |
rights which have gone a begging for an heir I
since early in the eighteenth oentury, is being
seriously urged in the U. 8. Senate in bar of I
the ratification of the Fisheries treaty. Wei
can hardly credit the fact, inasmuch as every ]
member of the United States Senate, at least I
should be sufficiently well informed to know, I
that after yean of investigation, the pretence
thus set up by thia individual has been scouted I
out of Parliament and the law courts of the I
British realm, while he himself barely escaped I
punishment as the perpetrator of a monstrous ]
frand. Indeed, we can hardly believe that j
after having exhausted his own country's
fund of credulity, he should find grave United I
States Senators " green" enough to be caught I
by his pretences. In the trial, " in ordinary," I
wherein the nature of his claim was exposed. I
extinction of the blood of the Earl of Selkirk I
was fully proved, except that of hii son John; of
otartmoor. It was claimed by this Mr. Hum- I
phreys, that John of Antrim, was his son; and 1
that John of Birmingham, (England,) was the I
son of John of Antrim; he (Humphreys) be- ]
iog descended from the Birmingham John. I
In the course of the trial, however, it was I
made patent that the papers which were offered I
to prove the chain of descent from John of I
Gartmoor, to John of Birmingham, were sweep-1
ing forgeries, got up by a famous French wo-1
man, who followed the business of telling for-1
lunes, notoriously the shrewdest swindler ofl
her day on tho continent. |
All these facts causo the claim of Mr. Hum-1
phreys?Alexander to be hooted out of the]
United Kingdom, to find a lodgement here, I
where a joint stock specul ation upon it has t?;n J
gotton op to o(>erate on the Government of the J
United States?the executive branch of our I
Government having been found unapproacha- I
b!o with any such bogus pretence, Congress I
is next beseiged with it; a claim being set up I
it seems, that the British Government have no I
right to cede to us the privilege of fishing on |
the coast of British* North Ameriea, the con- I
trol and emolument thereof being the right of |
the French fortune telling woman's man
We repeat, this clsiin stands wholly on a I
forged patent?on a patent proved to be forged I
in the only country wher8 its validity could be I
lawfully tried.
The Navy Appropriation Bill ?Efforts are I
doubtless being made to induce the Senate so I
to amend this bill, as that it will increase the I
number of officers in the service of the two I
highest grades, establish the proposed retired |
list of officers unfit for active duties, and create I
the new bureau of equipment, towards which I
the House committee manifested as little favor I
in framing thel* xoform hill, as towards j
the proposition to make more captains *\nd I
commanders in tho service We take it fori
granted that these efforts must prove abortive. I
though the retired list proposition is roally I
wise and just. Being in what tae House com-1
mittee have voted bad company, it can hardly I
be that even that alone can succeed at this ses-1
sion, unaccompanied by tho other reai reform* I
which the committee aforesaid recommend. 1
Tho truth ia, neither the more higher officer I
proposition, cor that for the creation of a new I
naval bureau, are reforms ia any sense what- I
ever. So long za captains and commanders I
who rate on the pay-rolla aa being fit for activc I
duty, are in sufficient number to allow one I
half of them always to be on leave or doing but I
occasional shore duty, Congress will not in-1
crease the liat. Nor will they divide the I
duties of the Bureau of Equipment, Construe-1
tion and Bepaira, so long, as ut present, it I
proves competent to the most satisfactory dis- I
charge of those devolved upon it. I
From Cuba.?We have a letter from an in-1
telligent American resident on the aeuth side I
of Cuba, dated July 15, 1854, saying?
* # * " There ia the d?1 to pay here I
amongst the authorities, negro dealers, Ac I
Several of the wealthiest and most influential I
of our citizens, and others, have been arrested I
I and imprisoned for participating in the busi-1
neas, and what ia to grow out of it all, ia more I
than I can say. " I
Thedesirefor annexation begins to pervade |
even the old Spaniards, and if the Governor-1
General ia not soon relieved by his govern- I
men:, he wi!l; I thin*, be relieved by some I
other power. j
" These are exciting times, and I would like 1
to tee the result of the experiment now being I
made by tboae in power. Everything ia tend- I
ing to prumote the viows of our Government I
in purchasing, and I think they will Bucceed ]
in aoing so on their own term9." I
The Bayly Investigating Committee ?We I
hear that Mr. Benjamin E. Green haa been ex-1
amiaed at length before this committee, and I
that the uiuount of his testimony is th.it he I
knows nothing, of hia own knowledge, of the I
truth of bis allegation* against Mr. liayly, o! I
Virginia. It ia aaid further, that ho haa named I
Mr. Henry A. Wise aa having given him acme I
information, in conversation, on which he I
baaed the first portion of hia ao formally drawn
allegation. It is also said around the House I
Hall, that he asked to be permitted to file Mr
B.'a Mexican-indemnity payment speeches iL
the Hall, aa part oi his testimony, but that thi
committee declined to accede to that request;
the idea that there is anything in them goiBg j
to snow corruption on the part of their author
being the merest hallucination imaginable.

Official Bond! not to be Surrendered.?The
bocda of disbursing officers or agenta are filed
in obedience to law in the office of the proper
Comptroller of the Treasury.
Ia a recent case the sureties made applica
tion for the surrender of the official b<-nd, aTtei
all the aeoounts of their principal had been
satisfactorily closed. It was held that the la?
required bonds to be on file, and that there
was no authority to withdraw them except for
purposes of suit?no power having been given
by ftctat* to 49/ offoer to surrender tbep is
any contingency. On the final and satisfac
tory adjustment of an account, a certificate to
that effect from the proper officcr is sufficient
for the sureties.
New American Charges?From what is said
just now among the leading Democratic mem
bers of Congress, we have come to the conclu
sion that yesterday, or cn the day before, the
President tendered to Col. Jno. II. Wheeler,
of North Carolina, the Chargeship to Nicara
gua, and to Marlio. of Nashville, xec
O /
nessee, editor of the Union, of that city, the
post of Charge to Guatemala. As it is hardly
to be presumed that either will refuse such of
fices, these appointments may fairly bo con
sidered a? made.

DISGRACEFUL FIGHT BETWEEN BILL
POOL AND JOHN MORRISEY?MOR
RISEY FRIGHTFULLY BE ATE W.
The New York papers of last evening con
tain the disgusting parti:ulars of a most dis
graceful fight between two well known pugilist#,
named Pool and Morrissey. The 'Times has
the following classic account of the affair :
'?One of our reporters happening in at a
public hotel at a late hour last night, learned
that Bill Pool and John Morrisey,?both rather
notorious in the pagilistio world,?had made
arrangements for "a hog light," (?the Fancy
term it,) to come off at 7 o clock, on the Amos
street dock, for $100 a side.
"The bet appears to havo been challenged
by Morrisey yes'eTday afternoon, at the City
llolcl, the conditions of which were as pro
posed by Morrisey and accepted by Pool:?
"You dare not figlit mo for $100?name your
place and timo. This is the language at
tributed to Morrisey- Pool immediately took
the bet. naming 7 o'clock this morning as the
time, and the dock at the toot of Amos-street,
as the place.
" At about 5 this morning, Pool, with a
friend, was seen to enter a row-boat, (the for
mer as rowman,) and to pas3 up and down the
North river. At this early hour several of
the Fanoy, already assembled upon the dock,
began to ruspect the place of the fight haa
been changed, and that the delightful sport
would bo lost to them. But the return of
Pool at about 6 o'clock dissipated all doubt;
and at quarter after six several hundred spec
tators had as3embled.
"The ground selected was of course conve
nient to the friends of the party challenged,
but no disposition was manifested to witness or
tolerate foul play.
" Fighters being usually before rather than
behind time, (as the time had now reached 6J
o'clock.) the prediction was expressed that
Morrissey would not appear?that he had
managed to bo arrested by the police, Ac.,
Ac. Pool expressed a wish that ho would
come?that he would fight him like a man?
aDd thought a d?d sight more of the fight
than the money.
" In a few moments, however, all doubt was
dissipated. Morrissey walked down the deck,
stripped for the occasion, where his antagonist
stood to receive him. As he approached, the
crowd opened to the right and left, and the
shout went up, " Stand back! let the two men
meet!" To this some attention was paid, (per
haps as much as usual in such a fight,) when
the parties met, "eager for the fray."
"Both squared, and each eyeing hi3 antag
tagonist wiitk a kind of calculating ferocity,
moving about for a chance for half a minute,
when Morrissy put out his left hand, and sim
ultaneously Pool drooped, seized his adversary
about the body and threw him. In this po
sition they remained, Pool uppermost, for 12i
minutes, when Morrissy said, " enough," and
the usual shout went up and the parties were
separated
" Morrissey, supported by friends, left the
ground apparently severely injured; while Pool
was shouldered by his friends, and carried,
apparently unscathed, to the nearest place for
ablution,?where he, of course, partook of the
usual, though interdicted beverage of the Ninth
Ward."
The Tribune gives the following account of
the 'set-to
" After very little ceremony Morrissey, who
was dressed in a neat summer suit, opened the
ball by making a pass at his adversary with
his list. The blow missing its dmt'nation,
Pool ssized Morrissey around the waist, threw
him with groat violence to the ground, and
then went at him with fists and feet, beating
him in a most frightful manner, gouging out
his right eye, the tight of which it is thought
he will lose?cutting head, face, ears, and in
fact, during the sppce of five minutes?that
beiDg the length of time the fight lasted?dis
figuring him in such a manner that ho was
scarce recognized by his frionds.
"Morrigsey seeing no chance of escapo, and
fearing that his life would be sacrificed, cried
enough, when he was released, placed in a light
carriago and driven away by a email lad. Im
mediately after the encounter was over, the
Ninth Ward Police arrived at the spot, but as
we are ioiormed, made no arrests. Some four
hundred persons had collected on and about
the river, and boats were lying by to witness
tho disgraceful affair. Pool received but very
slight irjuries; one of his eyes being consid
erably blacked. After the fight had ended.
Pool, with a friend or two, jumped into a boat
and rowed up the river. It is s'atod that
Morrissey chose this rough and tumble manner
of lightiug lie alleges that several persons
were upon and striking him *t the same time,
but this id positively denied by Pool, who says
that no one touched Morrissey but himself.
" The main fight being over and the princi
pal gone, several less noted villians came in
coiiisiun John Lyng go*, a blow on the nose
while defending his friend Morrissy. No others
were seeaiirgly hurt. The police, after their
arrival, quickly dispersed the fighting crowd,
ant order was soon restored. Very smart po
lice. The station-house is about three min
utes' walk from tho scene "
Under the head of " later particulars," the
Times has the following paragraph :

frightful manner. It puzzled many of his

FRANCE.
The Emperor arrived at Boulogne on the
11th. Thore was no public reoeption. On ar
rival he reviewed the troops, and issued the
following
PROCLAMATION TO THE ARMY.
"Soldiers ! Russia having forced us to a
war. Franco has armed 500,000 of her children.
England haa called out a considerable number
of troops. To-day our troops and armies,
united for the same cause, dominate in the
Baltio as woll as in the Black Sea. I have
selected you to be the first to carry our eagles
to those regions of the north. English vessels
will convey you there?a unique fact in history,
which proves the intimate alliance of the two
great nations, and the firm resolution of the
two Governments not to abstain from any
sacrifice to defend the right of the weak, the
liberty of Europe, and the national honor.
?'Go, my children! Attentive Europe,
openly or secretly, offers up vows for yeur tri
umph; our country, proud of a struggle which
only threatens the aggressor, accompanies you
with its ardent vows; and I, whom impervi
ous duties retain still distant from tho scene of
events, shall have my eyes upon you. I shall
be able to say, 'They are worthy sons of the
oonquerers of Austerlitz, of Eylau, of Fried
land, and of Moskowa.'
Go ! May God protect you!
" Napoleon."
Long and oontinued shouts of "Vive l'Em
pereur" followed the reading of this address
The English ehipfl-<?f-war are anchored in Ca
lais Roads. The embarkation will not take
place until the 20th of July, previous to which
tho whole foroe will be again reviewed by
Napoleon. The Emperor resides at the Hotel
du Nord. lie is not accompanied by the Em
press.
SPAIN.
PROGRESS OF THR INSURRECTION.
The Paris Moniteur publishes a dispatch
from Madrid of the 11th July, according to
which Madrid was quiet at that date. The
insurgents were near Lespenapenos. Their
ranks were rapidly thinning by desertion, and
the royal troops were hemming them in. Gen.
Serrano, who had joined the insurgents, did
not succeed in carrying with him any of the
soldiery. Government troops from the north
were rapidly advancing toward Madrid. The
Governors of Seville and Granada had taken
the field in favor of the Government with all
their disposable foroe. On the 4th, a body of
the insurgents left Tembleque for Alcazar de
San Juan, retreating in the direction of Anda
lusia.
Accounts brought to Madrid by parties fa
vorable to the insurgents say that th9 rising in
Valencia is formidable espeoially at Segorbe.
Gen. Serrano, on joining O'Donnell made an
address to the troops whloh was reoeived with
enthusiasm. He brought with him to the in
surgent rank* but a mull force of infantry,
and 200 cavalry. O'Dennell is reported to i
hare now with him about 5.000 men. of whom 1
not fewer than 2 000 are cavrlry. They are j
in hopes of an outbreak in Madrid.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Ic tho British House of Lord#, on the 13th,
the Bishop of Oxford called the attention of
the Government to the fact that the first effect j
of the deliverance of the Circassian Coast from
Russian dominion, wore the active w;val of
the slave trade in jzirls for the market of Con
stantinople. The Earl Clarendon axplained
the difficulties, that lie in the way of extin
guishing this custom, lie also stated that
Schuiayl is opposed to the trad - in Circassians,
and that the present being a favorite oppor
tunity, all that can be done for its suppression
will be done by the British Government. In
tho IIouso of Commons Lord John Russell
stated, in answer to a question, that an effec
tive blockade of the mouths of the Danube is
established; with respect to the blockade of
the sea of Azoff, and the intermediate ports of
the Black Sea, some doubt had arisen as to its
being quite in conformity with tho law of na
tions. and tho subject had been remitted to the
Courts of Paris, London and Constantinople;
the result will soon be declared. A strict
blockade of Archangel and other ports of the
White Sea, commencing on the Is* of August.
It is notified that the Sultnn will visit Omer
Pasha's headquarters, and afterwards proceed
to Silistria to distribute rewards to tho brave
defenders of that fortress.
Abd-el-Kader has written the following let
ter to Omer Pasha. It is dated from Broussa,
the 15tb of June :
11 My Very Dear Brother:?The gates of
Paradise opened themselves for me when I
spoke with tho Only Prophet, in a dream, on
the eve of the 1st Ramadan. I heard all the
great and holy souls who repose on Abraham's
bosom proclaim your name with shouts of joy;
and I saw a halo of glory spread around the
ranks of tho holy souls when they uttered your
name. God is with you, my brother. Where
evcr you go, glory and victory will attend you
Carry off the camps of your enemies ! Bless
ings accompany you. Slay the enemy fly be
fore you ii&e jjck&lls, and our children's chil
dren glorify your namo. Forward, and draw
not back ! The Prophet wills it. The day of
expiation has arrived for the giaons of Mos
cow. My blessings on you, my brother,
Abd-kl-Kadkr."
GEORGETOWN CORSES?ONDENCE
a*OBG*TOWH, July 2S, 1854.
On visiting Alexandria, a few days since,
we were not a little surprised at seeing at the
coal wharves the large number of vessels
(some thirty odd) receiving and waiting for
cargoes; and we were led to ask ourselves the
question why it was that the capitalists of
Georgetown, with facilities for transhipping
the article far superior in every sense of the
word to ?hose enjoyed by our neighbors, had
suffered tho whole of this large amount of
trade to slip through their fingers and fnd a
permanent location elsewhere. Before and
about the time the canal was completed to
Cumberland, wa heard muoh talk about the
coal trade, and the great benefits Georgetown
would derive from it, and many plans for its
reception were devised; but wo are sorry to
gay that not one of them was ever carried out.
While we were talking about the matter, our
neighbors acted, and thus wo suffered our
selves to bo despoiled of ihe wholo of this
trade. We cannot believe that it is owing to
a want of enterprise upon the part of our
merchants; upen the contrary, wo believe
them generally to be possessed of as much of
this very necessary element in the char
acter of a business man, as those of any
other place. But we belileve that it is owing
mainly to tbe fact, that, instead of putting
our own shoulder to the wheel, and relying
upon our own rotourccs, we haro too lone
looked for help from a source which expere
rienca teaches us we have just grounds to ex
pect but little. That there are some difficulty
in the way of our entering extensively into the
fltvtrade, that Alexandria has not to contend
WTft, wo admit; but they are not such as could
not be easily overcome. The principal one,
we believe, is that miserable incubus upon
the prosperity of our laws, the long Bridge ?
but we feel confident that the additional ex
peneeof boats unlosditgat Alexandria, caused
the difference in distance and delays, fully
double what it would cost tor towing vessels
engaged in tbe trade to and from that point.
We have heard ano.her reason aosigned why
we have not at least a portion of this trade,
and that if, that some of tho owners of the
property best adapted for coal wharves, are
in the regular habit, whenever they ascertain
that either our own or capitalists from abroad
are anxious to obtain it for such a pur
pose, of trying to extort from them two or
threo times its real value, and thus both the
trade and capital has been driven from amon?
th? referred to, in
Sf. I Jading a profit to the owner*, is in
such a condition that we doubt whether it pays
even the corporation taxes. If this be the
real cause, we hope chat the true frieuds of
unr town will use their utmost endeavorf to
* id us of all roch drones.
