WASHINGTON NEWS AND G08SIP
The Eleventh deception.?The levee last
night was more fully attended than some of
its predecessors; indeed, the steady current
settling towards the East room threatened at
one time to crowd that spacious apartment
rather unpleasantly, considering the warmth
of the season, but the long hall, which now
furnishes so fine a promenade, afforded a
means of carrying off the surplus, and thus a
healthy equilibrium was kept up. No doubt
the advent of the spring fashions had some
thing to do with tha extra turn out, though
we saw an unusual number present of those
who bestow very little care upon externals.
The ladies, of course, looked radiant in the
" Spring styles," but the press upon our col
umns to-day prevents our going into details,
even had we the talent or disposition. Other
wise, the programme was gone through with
much as usual. There was the usual amount
of titrivaticg before the ante-ioom mirrors?
the usual straining on of white kids; the
usual cosy tete a tetes in the crimson parlor;
the usual handsome reception at the hands
of President and Mrs. Piercc ; tho usual run
ning of the gauntlet on the part of the gay
promenaders through the long circular lace
of lookers oD ; the usual array of diplomatic,
military, naval, and Congressional dignita
ries; the usual?the more than usual number
of belles with their attendant cavalicrs ; the
usual number of painted Jezebels of sixty,
undertaking tho up-hill work of passing for
sixteen ; the usual number of sweet misses,
?'just come out," glancing shyly at their full
length duplicates in the large mirrors; the
usual?tho inevitable 44 Yankee Doodle,"
which, like the working of a magic spell,
scatters in a twinkling the gay assemblage.
Astute Attorney General Cushing was there
to represent the Cabinet. Austrian diplomacy
was uppermost in the presence of Chevalier Hui
eemann. Judge Douglas was present, looking
very little the worse f r the wear and tear of his
late laborious political campaign, or the se
vere illness that followed it. lie was icr.de
much of, especially by the ladies, and when
ever there was collected a denser group than
ordinary of the fair creatures, with an outer
circle of rather unhappy and alarmed locking
beaux, a clo?er survey was pretty sure to dis
cover the 44 little giant" dispensing compli
ments. smiles and bows, in a way that threat
ened annihilation to the pretensions of all the
bigger giants.
The superb-looking and excellent actress,
Mrs. MclindaJor.es, was there; the author
and state.-man. J. K. Paulding, was there;
the be? ifcaing South Carolina heiress, was
there, and by her charms, spiritual and tem
poral, set allsusceptiblemale hearts to aching.
The ripened beauty of a New York million
airess, had also its circle of admirers. We
noticed also the accomplished wife of the
lion Mr Ilarlan of Ohio, and Miss Waldo of
New \ork, the grand-daughter of the rever
end and venerable Chaplain of the House, ac
companied by the Hon. Mr. Stanton of Ohio
Our own city was ther* in full force, with
its large delegation of beauty and brilliancy;
and hereabouts we noticed a trio of our
14 Philharmonic'' singing birds. 44 'Tis plea
sant to be with those wc love," especially in
the crimson parlor! Isn't it Mis* C., Miss
W., Mils M. ?
Governor Broom, of Florida, was there, hale
and hearty. Clingman. of North Carolina,
was there and displayed his usual good taste
in his selection of a partnar for the prome
nade. The white locks of joyous looking
Senator Butler were noticeable in the throng;
and prominent in the assemblage, too, was
another distinguished Senator?Hen. Mr Ma
son. of Virginia
The Marine Band, conducted by Professor
Sea.a, as utual furnished its fuil quota to the
evening's enjoyment, with the following
PKOG&AMMK.
March, Anvil Chorus, 44II Trovatore;"
Duetto, "Norma; Polka, 44 My Mary Ann;
Aria Finale, 4? Lucretia Borgia;" Walts; Star
Spangled Banner; Polka; Yankee Doodle.
44 Oor Sufferings i* Intolerable."?Mr Na.
than Sargeant. who has been a standing can.
didate for anything fat for so many years,
having last aspired to the positions of Clerk
Printer, and Sargeant-at-Arms of the present
House, one after the other, thus moans over
the sad fate of the brood of office seekers who
were disappointed in connection with the
Hons* offices:
44 One of the clerks under Mr. Forney, re
moved by the present clerk of the House, was
yesterday restored to his place. The Demo
cratic Clfrk of the Committee on Claims, who
ousted a \\ hig from the place iu lbl3 has been
re elected by the present committee, and Mr.
McClusky, or Clusky without the Mac. an
Irish Catholic, who has a most intense hatred
American, is also retained as Clerk of
ice Military Committee ; nor should I forget
to mention the genero.ity 0f the Committee of
]3r th".! r ?D8 ,n rVtlect5"K the old Clerk
. Committee, a Democrat, of course, for
whoever knew a Democratic Committee to
rct a Whig or opp<,?iiioU Clerk ?
The latter clerkship has been made a Derma
rent cue. at $1800 a y.ar That o? the C^m
mittee on C.aims is also a permanent one On
the whole, then. Democrats have been better
provided for and taken care of by the piaeent
Houte of Representatives than opposition men.
especially if we take into the account the
election of a Democrat as Public Printer, and
a Democrat as Sergeant-at-Arms. This is
highly encouraging to all who are cxpected to
labor to defeat the party inpower in thecoming
Presidential campaign. Who would not be a
Democrat, when the game is 44 heads I win,
tails you lose ?"
Mr Michael Ciusky, to whom Mr. Sargent
refers above, is a native of Georgia, not of Ire
land, as alleged.
Further Concerning the Right of Search
Affair at Rio.?This mc ming we received the
following interesting accrunt of the affair of
the American merchant steamship America at
Rio, the main particulars of which we briefly
published on the day before yesterday. Tb*
writer, as will be perceived, is on the United
States frigate Savannah :
U. S. Ship Savaknah, j
Rio de Janeiro, j
Mosoat, Feb 11, 1856?We are just
now in the midst of great %xcitem*nt. caused
by the ridiculou? conduct of the English ad
miral commanding Her Majesty's fleet on this
station, Sir Hope Johnson The facts of the
casa are these: The steamer America, Capt
Hudson, arrived here a few days ago, from
New York, bound to San Francisco. She put
in here for repairs. Everything went on very
quietly until yesterday (Sunday) afternoon,
when it was perceived that the English squad
ron wero preparing for sea in a very burned
manner. No one could tell what it meant.
Rumors were afloat that a Russian frigate and
corvette had captured the flag ship of the
French admiral?the frigate Poursuivante?
which left here on Saturday, bound to Monte
video. Laet night, however, the mystery was
explained. An English lieutenant came on
board and stated to Com. Salter th it ?' posi
tive information" had been received by Ad
miral Johnson to the effect that the steamer
America, which was to leave port to-day, was
a Russian privateer, and that she had arms
and ammunition concealed in her hold, in
tended for the Russian possessions on the Pa
cific coast, and that the admiral considered it I
his duty to overhaul the steamer. Com. Sal
ter replied that he should permit no outrage
of the kind to bo committed ; and our fl3g
lieutenant went on board H. M ship Indefat
igable with a very warm message to the ad
miral. This morning, Capt. Hudson had an
interview with Com. Salter, and stated that if
the commodore wished to see whether ho had
arms concealed, both he and the authorities
of the poTt could overhaul his steamer and
satisfy themselves of the correctness of his
manifest; but that no English or French offi
cers should set foot on her decks?if they did
ha would most certainly throw them over
board. He could show a clean set of papers
from an American port, and would maintain
his right as an American citizen to the last
extremity. Communications are passing rap
idly, and no one can tell how the matter will
end. .
Tuesdav. Feb. 12 ?Tho Brazilian authori
ties yesterday afternoon gave the " America
her clearanee, after examining her, and find- I
ing everything correct, as stated by Captain
Hudson This did not satisfy the admiral,
who expressed his determination of overhaul- I
ing her outside tho harbor. The steamer
?i>es out this afternoon or to-morrow morning.
We leavo early in the morning and go cut
with her The first movement on the part of
the English to datuin her will be the signal
for an engagement We commenced this morn- 1
ing at daylight to prepare for sea, and are
now entirely ready?boats hoisted in, tho ship I
unmoored and riding to a single anchor, run; I
ning rigging all wove, and light sails bent.
The America is to tow us to sea, and we will J
remain with her until she is out of the reach
of tho English suuadron. It will be a bad
d.tys' work for env of their ships if they get
into action with us Our ship is now in mag
nificent order, and sails like a witch, while
the men arc in peifect discipline, and eager
for a i rush at John Bull Our C> mmodoro
has stopped all communication with the ad
miral ; and a letter brought by an English
lieutenant this morning was returned un
opened. Such is the excitement in Rio in
regard to this affair, that a steamer has been
chartered by a number of citizens to go out
and witness tho expected engagement. To
morrow will decide the matter whether the
decided stand we have taken will deter the
English from committing this outrage, or else
will see their haughty standard onco more I
humbled before the glorious banner of the
Stars and Stripes. We have right on our side;
and should it coma to blows, wo will go into I
action with stout hearts, and, placing a firm I
reliance cn tho God of battles, confidently
anticipate a glorious victory. I
As the mail bag closes in a few minutes, I
shall not be able to give you tho sequel to I
this affair. j
The Aqueduct.?The most aotive efforts are I
bsing made to defeat the aqueduc' appropria- I
tion by persons in tho lobby interested in get- I
ting up a scheme to construct water works un- I
der a new plan, by a company, with Govern
ment money of course. Tho whole outside op
position, in the lobby, to the work, comcs fr< m
parties bent on benefiting themselves pecuni
arily by thus defeating the ap propria'ion in the
Deficiency bill. This is outrages", and will |
doubtless be frowned on by the members gen
erally. As yet their scheme has not been
mado public, though we feel assured cf its
existence from what we already have been
able to discover. Allourfellow-ciiizensfchould
promptly aid in checkiDg its success.

At Home A5i> Abroad; or Things and Thoughts
in America und Europe. By Margaret Ful
ler-Okeoli, author of " Woman in the Nine
teenth Century," 4c. Edited by l.er brother,
Arthur B. Fuller. Boston Crosby, Nichols
A. Co 1456
This volume contains the posthumous papers
of the talented but eccentric and very ultra
w?man to whose pen originally the world is
indebted fur it. The t>hort preface by the
brother is, of coursc, a specimen of the very
bad taste of the day in famiiy autobiography,
which is the semi deification of the subject.
It is, nevertheless, a work of interest; for Mrs
Ossoli, though afflicted with all the mental
extravagancies of tho New York Tribune
school of thought, was a woman of genius and
keen though usually perverted perceptions.
Though rarely sympathizing in any of her
vi?;ws, founded as they were in the most per
nicious school of modern 41 philosophy," we
always read her with pleasure, if but in ad
miration of her artistic merits as a writer.
Chriktime. or Woman's Trials and Triumphs.
By Laura J. Curtis. New York: Dewitt A
Davenport ?
This is the last work of a popular novelist
of the times, whose books are eagerly sought
by the American lovers of light literature. It
is probably destined to have a great run, for
it is well calculated to amuse and interest
those who "cotton to" such literature.

Tho Thames tunnel at prosent is both

as well as foot passengers it will not answer its
original purpose It is reached now by a
winding staircase down the shaft on either side
of the river, and it is open day and night for
passengers at a toll of one penny each. It is
lighted with gas, and some of its arches are
occupied as small shops and for the exhibition
of works of art The approaches for vehicles
are intended to be circular, by shafts 200 feet
in diameter. Their cost is estimated at 180,
000 pounds. We do not understand that any
probability exists of their early construction.

diverted the noxious gases to the apartment
in which his two daughters had retired Mrs.
Nye. fortunately, rose unusually early in the
morning, and in attempting to arouse the
young ladies, she became so alarmed at their
silence, that she procured the door to be forced
open, and found both in an insensible condi

and, meanwhile, Capt. Nye, accustomed to
emergencies, promptly applied restoratives, by
which tho patients wero brought back to con

restored to health.
Musical ArTOMATON ? The Boston papers
describe as now in that city a most ingenious
piecc of mechanism, constructed by a native of
IIoll tnd in tho Island of Java. It is the full
length figure of a man, well proportioned,
who holds in his ban ls a musical instrument,
from which he discourses music, in exact
time, and with most superhuman skill The
instrument used at times is a clarionct, but
the figure also plays upon a cornet and an
organ, in which latter case the feet are used
as well as tho hands. In the interior can be
so'en the complex mechanism, which, inflating
tho lung=, as it were, scnd3 the breath into
tho instrument, which controls the finger
moving the keys, and serves as the nerves and
muscles of tho automaton When thiR ma
chinery is wound up the head bows, the eyes
move in the most natural manner, and the
lips seem to count the measure, and the cla
rionot may begin at the exact moment re
quired to accord with the accompaniment of
tne piano Several musical gentlemen, pres
ent at a private exhibition, expressed them
selves delighted with the ingenuity of the
contrivance.
