The Weather, us we all gratefully know, is ndeed bland and pleasant. idler the laH* summer heat, of which there was so much (fwnrral com plaint, and which drove many of ottr population (rout home to the interior watering ptareaand to i lie tea shore, in quest of a less oppressive alino<?* phcre. As the intense solar raya wcrp enervating and injurious to heailli, and in some instances productive of apoplexy and death, m> now an iu?? prudent exposure to the feeavy nmiit dewa should lie avoided by all who are not solicitous to eon tract diseases incident to the season. All around lire evidence* of the advance ot au tumn, and the pausing away ot the Mimmer glo ries. In this connexion it is a matter ol congrat ulation that those little pests, inusqiiiioc* (with the music and bites of which, alas! our euisens are too familiar) will soon cease to molest their unoffending victims. The Poor*?Before long, winter, with all its iw? verilies, will be experienced in our midst, and, a* formerly, there will be much sullering among the pennyless and destitute. Heretofore, charity has slumbered until the cutting boreal blast has culled it into efficient action, and when fuel was at the highest price. A hundred curds of wood could now be purchased for the sum which will Ik* demanded by the merchants, before Christmas, I* >r seventy-live. In view of this fuel, we would res pectfully suggest to the philanthropic |>orlion of our community to commence, at once, the good work of providing, in advance, lor the relief of the poor. City Improvements.?We notice in every di rection the recent completion of dwelling-house*, und the foundations of ones just commenced. It is doubtiul whether there is a single workman con nected with tins description of.busimrfs unem ployed. Not only do our owa mechanics, but equally as many from elsewhere, find employment, at wages higher than those paid at any former jw riod. The "city of magnificent distances/' will soon cease to be applied to W'ashiugton, at the present rate of improvement. The Police System which now prevails in Washington involves a yearly expenditure,out of the city treasury, of about thirteen thousand dol lars; whereas, the old system cost but seven hun dred and fifty dollars. Then the constables and magistrates had to work for all the money they ol?- ' taincd, and the police busiuess was, at least, as well attended to as it is now. This is a subjectMiot l?e neath the notice of the corporation fathers. The Troupe of" Celestials, fortv-two in num" ber, who are now astonishing "the natives" with their performances at Iron Hull, have their head quarters at the. li ving Hotel. The presence of the distinguished strangers creates not a little stir in the community. Their bill/of fare at the hotel embraces, principally, soups, rice, and fresh fish, omitting the daiuiUs enjoyed in their father land, which ure such as would not be at all pleu sant either-to our taste or contemplation. Municipal Receipts and Expenditures.?Ac cording to the report of the city Register, commu nicated to the councils yesterday afternoon, the amount received into the Corporation treasury lor the year ending June .'10, 1853, from all sources, was $'248,600 40. CM'this sum, $103,441 II was paid intotlie exchequer by the Collector. Tke taxes on taverns realized, $.1,'217 95; aliops, $2,934 30; gro ceries and liquors, $5,530; merchandise, $5,218 75; hacks, 91,890 33; carts, wagons, and drays, $2,1G9 0jSj hucksters, $2,103 97; butchers' stalls, $3,057 12; vegetable and fish stalls, $5,143 75; from Washington canal, (rent of wharves,) $7,449 33; fines, Arc., $4,025; tax on stocks, $5,0*27 22; dogs, $1,325 08. The expenditures were, $154,053 1 0. And on account of the public schools, $22,045 77. Steam lire Knglne.?The Mayor of Wash ington yesterday afternoon enclosed to the two I wards of city councils a communication which he had received from the inventor of "the steam fire engine." Mr. Abel Shawk, of Ohio, who is now in this city. An engine of this description is now in successful use in Cincinnati. Mr. Shawk proposes to build one for our municipal corporation, and furnishes the following stipula tions of the proposed engine's performances: 1. The engine will throw six streams of water through three-fourth inch diameter nozzles 'over the tops of four-story buildings from the street. 2. It will throw a stream on to and over four and five stories from the street, through an inch " qpid three-quarters nozzle, or project the water to the distance of two hundred and forty feet along the street from the nozzle lo where it falls upon the ground. 3. It will'discharge between twenty and twenty, -five barrels of water per minute on the tire. 4. The inventor will warrant it for three years, with good usage. 5. He will ask no money until it is finished, and hold the contractors under no obligation lo pay for it, unless it performs the above stipulations. 0. The steam will be raised in five minutes from making the fire, and before the engine can Ik; placed at the cistern the steam will blow of!" at one hundred pounds to the inch. 7. He will furnish the suction and three hundred feet of hose. 8. The contractors are to pay cost of transpor tation and $8,000 in cash on delivery, if the stipu lations are performed. The board severally referred the petition to the committee on the fire -department. Mr. James Moore, one of our oldest citizens, aged seventy-three years,died on Sunday morning. He came to Washington in 1801, and for the lust forty-one years was a faithful and respected mes senger in the Treasury Department. Purchase of a Farm.?We learn that W. W Corcoran, esq., has recently purchased Mr. George M. Oyster's farm, about a mile north of the Capi tol, for $15,000. Three years ago the former pro prietor was on the eve of selling it for less thnn half that sum. This is another evidence of' the increasing value of real estate in the neighborltood of Washington. The Misses Collins.?A number ofgentlemen of this city hnve undertaken to give a subscription benefit to the Misse* Collins, the accomplished and deserving vocalists, on Thursday evening next, at Carusi's Saloon. Wat.kino Sticks.?Walking sticks were first introduced into fashion by the effeminate Hen ry IT. of France, but did not become a requi site appendage to the gentlemen of fashion in England till the year 1056, at which time they were formed with an indented head, in order to afford a more easy pressure of the hand which they supported. Ingenuity, which in matters of fashion is ever on the alert, now crowned it with the addition of the round and hollow top, which sometimes contained nutmeg or ginger, to warm the stomach of the valetudinarian, and sometimes sugar candy for the asthmatic; but snuff soon aAer coming into universal use among the ban (on of society, the cavity was exclusively appropriated to its reception, and the meeting of too friends was invariably marked, after the first salutation, by the tin screwing of the tops of their walking sticks. Yon may persuade n man that he is a wit or a sage?a philosopher or a philanthropist; but you might as well undertake to cross the Atlantic in a tea-cnp as to make him be lieve he is a fool. Sceptics are advised to ex periment upon the stupidest friend they have. IBWI FROM CALIFORNIA. TU steamship Northern Lifhl, Capt.

Since the date of our last semi-monthly notice of the market, every depailiiien? of trade has ex hibitcd au extraordinary degree of languor and in activity. This lia* Wen owing to the Mime cause to which we then hail occasion to advert, via: fhc al>?ciicc of any demand of i*on?equence from tlie interior, which would eualde our jobbers to rid themselves <U their slocks. and to re-enter the market as purchasers. While, boucver. commer cial affairs are stideriug a temporary depression, consequent upou overtrading..the other great in tereots of our 1*tate are. in the mum. prosperous anh nourishing. The dry seasou does not now oppose that harrier to the miner's success which it lets done heretotore; by numerous individual and cotiilnncd enterprises, many parts of the auri I lerous region havea constant supply of water, aud the |iroduclion of gold goes on tu those localities without ceasalioii. Every county in the State is a scene of political 1 discusftion anil excitement. The election will take place ou the 7th proximo, and until that I event shall have transpired, the public mind will be, to a irreal extent,occupied by political matters. The Indian outbreaks iu the Rogue Kivcr valley, in tlie north, are becoming serious ami threaten ing. It is not improliable that general hostilities will be the consequence hi that part of the State and the southern part of Oregon. The existing troubles, like those thut have arisen from time to i time in other sections of the State, most probably j had their origiu iu the outrages which some ol the i more reckless and unprincipled of the while po|? ; pulution take so much pleasure iu inlbctnig upon ' the weak and dclciieclesa, whether civilised or ! savage. The |ieuceful ami industrious eiluens | have now to beur the vindictive hostihlv of the | savages, who recognise no distinction Is-twcen i friend or Ibc among the "pale faces." We- leur i thai a bloody and protracted war will ensue, the Iron i tier citizens defending their lives and their homes, i while the unprincipled wretches who kindled the I llamc are in salely, in the less exposed districts, j The murderers and thieves who have so long in ' tested ilia Stale, have been farcing somewhat budly | of lute. A number of them have Ix-en brought to ' summary account, ami lorfeited their lives Ibr their i crimes. Among them Vergare. who murdered ; Mr. Porter, near Los Angeles, some weeks since, : was lately killed at the military camp on the Col I orado. A rendezvous of vidians, of all grades and clinr ! acters, was recently discovered in the sink of the | Humboldt river, east of the Sierra Nevada. A \ murderer was traced by a party from Calaveras , county lo the rendezvous, where about one hun dred and fifty of the outlaws were discovered. A volunteer Ibrce will probably go out to dislodge i the vidians. i From various circumstances, it is more thalk j probable that the "Joaquin Hangers," whose sup ; posed capture of the renowned baudit, Joaquin | Muriatta, created so much talk lately, were mis taken in their man, aud decapitated an unlucky I person who went out with a party from I.?os An geles lo catch wild horses. A large meeting was held on the '21st of August, to take into consideration the best phin of action to hasten the construction of a Pacific railroad. A committee was appointed, but have not yet re ported. Mr. Brier gave a description of the coun try between Walker's Pass and the Utile Salt Lake?a country through which it was proposed that the railroad should pass, but that has never been explored by any white men except himself and a party who attempted to make a cut-off through it in 1841). He thought the country very favorable for a road. He said that the uIm that the Great Basin has a southern rim, is incorrect; the Basin has an outlet to the Colorado. A considerable degree of interest haslieen man ! j Tested in this city at the result of a'suit pending in the Supreme Court against Captain Patterson, of the Golden Gate, for putting a passenger ill a barrel as punishment. The suit was for vindic ! live damages of S3,000. The jury failed to find a j verdict, and were discharged on Saturday. The whigs closed their convention for noniinat ! ing county and city otticcrs on the 20th. Dr. H. ; M. Gray is nominated for mayor. It was gener ; ally understood that no person in favor of exlen | sion could get a nomination liefore the conven tion. The candidates for the legislature are all ! pledged. The democrats closed their convention on the ; 30th. As there is little hope for the success of ! their party in this city, not much importance is at tached to their proceedings. They have lieen very disorderly. They nominated Captain C. K. Garrison, agent of the Nicaragua Steamship Com pany, tor mayor. No pledges were required ou the subject of extension. It is understood that many of the nominees are extensioners. A comet was discovered iu the west, about ten degrees above the horizon, on the 20th, about S p. in. The nucleus was about the size of a star ofthe third magnitude. The sky has lieen ob scured by fogs or clouds every evening since it was discovered. It is supposed to lie the cornet thut appeared in 15t>G and 12G4. A small steamer for the rivor trade?I he second made entirely in this city?was launched on the 25th. This is the fourth built here this summer, and another is on the slocks. ? Tho journeymen bricklayers have struck lor an increase of wages from $10 to ?12 per day, aud have obtained it. The hod carriers struck suc cessfully for $0. A vast number of buildings,, mostly brick and fire-proof, are going up in the city. Of these buildings, two will cost more than $200,000 each, and nine will cost more than $75,000 each. The total capital invested in buildings now going up, is not less than $2,500,000. By the exhibit of the city assessors, the total value of taxable property is $28.802,000?$10,000?" 000 of increase over last year's valuation. The council has passed an ordinance lo permit a magnetic telegraph to be erected from the Mer chants' Exchange to I^arkin street, for the pur pose of reporting vessels. An ordinance to authorize the construction of a railroad along Market street, is under consid eration. The special committee of the board of aldermen has reported ill favor of the erection of a city hospital. The claim of the city to the land wilhin her limits has lieeu placed among the last on the docket. Three hundred cases will have to l?e ex amined before that can be reached. The Illinois river is ordered to be surveyed forthwith, by Col. S. H. Long. U. S. Togograplii cnl Engineer and Superintendent of Western River Improvements. This work^ is preliminary to that of dredging. Kissane and Findley, the two parlies arrested at Cincinnati sometime since,for forgery, were taken lo Lebiinon on the ISHh instant, where their trial commences to-day. Kissnne has engaged the ser vices of the Hon. Thomas Corwin as additional (Mirel. The Canadas, notwithstanding the observ able want of enterprise among their population, have advanced with considerable rapidity, in pop ulation and wealth, during the last seventy years. I'pper Canada has now a population exceeding 1,000,000 persons. Lower Canada possesses a population of 900,000, having, in point of numeri cal strength, increased 100 per cent, since 1S28. Upper Canada has still more rapidly progressed, as the number of inhabitants there, in the year last mentioned, was only aliout 185,000, thus giv mu au advance of 450 per cent, in the course of the past quarter of a century. This fact, we be lieve, cannot be equalled in the annals of the British colonies. We annex the figures connect ed with the extent, population, and commercial statistics of British America. Aereable extent, M8,850,000 acres; population, 2,500,000 souls*; trade with all nations, $70,200,000.

FROM SOUTH AHOCBNTKAL AMERICA. Venezuela.?This country wiih Mill being des isted by civil war, joined to the ravage* ol' tbe ty phus and yellow fevers. The revolutions, winch have never ceased to disturb Venezuela from the tune that Leocadio Guzman excited the populace against the men of worth, continued presenting un ulternutioii of triumph* and defeats, which leave in suspense the fate of society. The brothers Mon agas, absolute governors of Venezuela, have suc ceeded in reducing their adversaries in Valencia and in the valleys of Aragua; still the insurgents maintained themselves iu Cumana, and in the ts laitdof Margareta. Their defeats were attributed to a want of unanimity, which has neutralised their efforts from the Iteginning. From their not working iu accord, the heads of * movement, which appears a lawful one, liavc, in the most deplorable manner, compromised the success of tlie good cause of the conservative party, since the govern ment of Venezuela not only wants credit and moral power in the interior, but it ulso maintains its connection with foreign nations iu the worst condition. The whole diplomatic corps hus had to protest against its violences and arbitrarities. Hut in Venezuela, as elsewhere, timidity and indecision are accustomed to attend on the good cause, while the ba<i cause hus no scruple in availing itself of brute ibrce, and iu recurring to the attempts that occurred in 1M*, when General President Mona yas directed a horde of assnssins ugninst Congress. Mew Grenada.?The Peruvian minister, Senor I'az Soldun had left Bogota, after having regulated the question pending between Peru and New Granada, the chief of which is a question ol terri tory on the banks of the Amazon. There are good new* from the gold mines in the neighborhood ol Chondalcs, large lumps of gold have been received, and very line specimens ot quartz. Peru and Bolivia.?Since the military occu tion of the port of Cobija by the Peruvians, there hus not occurred any warlike move to complicate affairs. The belligerents had limited themselves to sending troops to the frontier, each army num bering four thousand men. President Bolzu had established Ins quarters !U Vrachia. Guatemala.?The dates from Guatemala are to the ?2d of July. The Garrta contains all the doc uments relative to the persecution of the enemy und to the second defeat which they sutlered on the 12tl. of July, on the uid of Atulaoa General Garcia (irunados. who commanded in the action, was promoted lothe rauk of brigadier of infantry. Notwithstanding these triumphs, General Cur rent hud resolved to order the evacuation of the llonduriun territory, and even to concentrate his troops towards Guatemala, contenting himself with leaving a battalion in the department of Chi quimald. Man Salvador and Honduras.?The dates from San Salvador ure to the 3th of August. The Ga rrta publishes the treaty between the United States and the republic of Salvador. The journals con tain nothing as to the state of affairs in Honduras. There had arrived ul Sun Salvador a Hondurian commissioner, IMii E use bio llellana, who, in his presentation speech, stated that only vague and unfounded rumors had thrown the two Stutes iu discord. It is to be presumed that his mission turns principally on the mode of reguluting the difficulties by means of a mediator. The government of San Salvador, which, on sending lienor Zuldivar toGuntamala. uppeured to bclicVe that the disagreement between both States, (Sim Salvador and Honduras,) wus not to l?e at tributed lo vague and unfounded rumors, officially facilitated the government of Guatrtmula, in very expressive terms, on the happy issue of the cam paign. Senor Zuldivar, on accompanying this felicitation with a note, ex pressed himself in a very resolute manner, stating that the shortness of time did not permit his government to concur in u di rect manner in the defence of the republic. Although the sanguinary turn which some ques tions have taken is to l>e lumeuted. there does not fail to result some good from certain misfortunes. One of these liencfit* is freedom in international relations. It is alwsys very deplorable, but some times very useful, that the sword cut the Gordiun knots of policy. The dales from Nicaragua are not so late us those we had previously received. The Head or Joaqullt.?The head of Joa quin MuriutiH. says the San Francisco I It raid, the roMn-r of Calaveras, now l>eing exhibited in thia city, ha* l?tien visited bv the curious, and identi fied by several. It is the imuression of ex-Sena tor W aruer. of San Diego, and Don Andres Pi?o, of Do* Angeles, that it i* the head of the veritable rubber chief. We learn that inthe early part of July lust lie passed through the rnnche of Don Andrea; at San Fernando, iu Dos Angeles county, front which he carried off upwards of fitly horses. He was next heard of at ine ranchcof San Francisco, in the same county, where he wa? met by a va quero. who charged him with having stolen Don ; Andres' horses, and warned hint he w?"U pursued. Thereupon, he turned over forty-three of the liorsos to the vaquero, with directions to return them to SHn Fernando, stating that he had need of the other seven. He passed on into Santa ltarbara county, where he was seen at two points. Thence he crossed the highest ridge of the coust range to Smita Yucx, Irom which there was no difficulty in getting across into Tulare valley. In fact, the place where he was killed is not more than two hundred miles by an easy road to Santa Ynex. In connexion with this subject, we may state we have received a letter signed Joaquin Carrillo. the name of another famous Mexican robber, the same who killed and roblied Foster, the partner of the late Major Savfege. and who is known lo have been skulking iu the valley of Sun Jose for some years past. The letter reads thus: Sax Funciko, Aug. 18, ISM. Sk\or Editor Herald: As iny capture, or sup r)*ed capture, seems to Im? the topic of the day, will, through your kindness, inform the readers of your valuable paper that I stdl retain my head, although it is proclaimed through the presses of your line city that I wns recently captured, and became very suddenly decapitated. The citizens of J?s Angeles have a curious story among them that the capture and decapita tion of Joaquin Muriutts did not tuke place on the person of the bandit. It is staled that the portiou of Joaquin's gang alleged to have l>een surprised und routed, was uone other titan n party of native Culilbruians and Sonoriaus who had gone to the Tulare Valley lor the express and avowed purpose of '-running mustangs." "Three of the party," our correspondent ?tnte?, " have returned lo Los Angeles, and report that they were attacked by a pnrty of Americans, and ihut the balance of their party, four in number, had l?een killed; thul Joaquin Valenxuela, one of the party, was killed and his head cut oH" by his captors!" News from tiik Plains.?A friend who has just arrived from the Plains, says the California?, re port* the immigration numerous and generally very healthy. There is a greater amount of stock coming across this year than any previous one, and is lielter suited to this market. The grns* wus |K>or all the way through, and oil -Mary's river not a spear was visible. All tbe truvel thus fur has been on the north side of tlie river in conse quence of the op|K?site side being yet wet and miry. The inosquitos were tormenting in the ex treme. The Indians were not very troublesome, although they had-stopped ono v agon oh the sum mit. and alter shooting the mules attached to it proceeded to rob it of its contents. A woman and her child sut iu llie wagon at the time, the men having let) her but a lew moments previous to as sist in bringing up another wagon. There were also two men killed on the mountain?the blood was yet visible on the snow when our inlbrinant passed. Stock buyers are plenty sll along the l)csert and Carson Valley, fstock ot all descrip tions sells at a very hi?t h price. Tbe latter portion to the immigration will undoubicdly fare lietlcr a* to grass, but will experience more hardships m the way of sickness than the first. Prom Pennsylvania Knijulror of Ui?

RELICS OF THE REVOLUTION. Passing Away !?We record to-day the death of George Colbath, a revolutionary pen sioner, at the age of 94. Mr. C., with Mr. Mark Green, and Capt. George Fishley, were for many years in requisition in our public processions, to represent the patriots of the revolution. In the last three years they have all passed away, and we have now left in active life in Ports mouth, but one who stands prominently as' a participator in the events of tho moRt important crisis in our history?that sage is John Mc Clintock, Esq., now in the 93d year. In phy sical powers and mental energies, he is 25 years youngerthnn in the number ofhis days. He bids fair to enter upon a second century. Precious in our eyes should be the revolutionary veteran. Soon not one will be left. At the great national jubilee in 1876, only about twenty years hence, it will be a matter of much interest to the young to be told that their fathers hod seei) a revolu tionary patriot, as it is to hear one now say, I have seen General Washington. There was an expression made by Mr. Green, who is above referred to, just before his death, which shows how the early events ofhis life filled his thoughts. Awaking as from a reverie, he said to his attendant, " Did you hear that gunt Washington is rerinring his troojts He soon after breathed his last, as if hastening to the field. In the spirit of poetry, what a field did the expression open for the imagina tion ; the re-assembling, in the land of spirits, of those around Washington who were asso ciates here. The review, not of military skill and prowess, but of the influence of truth, of fidelity to just sentiments, of activity for the ad vancement of man and the elevation of intellect, which each has exerted in this militant state. In such a review, the soldiers who fought for human glory, for plunder or for blood, would be found in the rear rank?while those who readily sacrificed all, even life, for their fellow men, would be crowned as the most valiant of the corps. Here is a subject for a poet: " Wash ington reviewing hi* troop* in the Spirit lMn^."?rt)ftsinoiith N. H. Journal. From tho Warerly Magazine*. T11E LOVERS' WELL. To mo, the most interesting part of the old ruins was the "Lovers' Well/ sunk through the solid rock, four hundred and filly-six feet?and that, too, by the force of true love. But I must tell the tale as Mednvansky has recorded it. It was in the reign of Mathias Corvinus, that Trentsin was in the possession of Stephan Za poyla, a powerful chief, who added much to the strength and magnificence of the r\oble pile. Like many other castles, however, placed on the summit of rocks, Trentsin paid dearly for the advantages of its situation, by having no sup ply of water but what was afforded by cisterns, evidently insufficient to enable a large garrison to support a long siege. To Zapoyla, this de ficiency in his favorite castle was a source of deep disappointment; nor had any one been able to propose an effectual remedy for it. Musing one day on this mortification, as he saw his new works nearly completed, he was roused by the announcement of his attendants that a Turkish merchant had arrived, who wished to treat with hint for the ransom of some pris- 1 oners, whom he had captured in the last war; and brought home with him in slavery. As a soldier, alive to the courtesies of war, Zapoyla at once expressed his willingness to take ran som for all who still remained in his hands: "As for those I have given my followers, they are no longer in my power, any more than the young girl whom my wife has chosen for her hand maid; for the former you must treat with their present masters; for the latter, she has become such a favorite with her mistress, that I am sure no sum would ransom her.*' " Hut might I not see this maiden?" anxio"sl\ demanded the young Turk. The girl was sent for. "Omar!"?"Fatime!"?burst at the same moment from their lips, as they rushed into each other's arms. Fatime, it appeared, was the daughter of a Pacha, and the affianced bride of Omar, who lost her in the night, when Zapoyla had at tacked the Turkish camp; and ner lover, dis guised as a merchant, had undertaken this journey in stfarch of her. Enraged at the Turk's presumption, Zapoyla ordered Fatime back to the countess1 apartments, and deaf alike to the entreaties and high offers of tho, lover, positively refused to deprive his wife of the attendant she liked. In vain Omar supplicated; in vain he threw himself passionately at the feet of Zapoyla, and begged of him his mistress. At last, angered at his perseverance, the hnnghty lord swore he might more easily obtain water from the rock they stood on, than compliance from him. " Try," said he, in soorn, " and when the rock yields water to your praver, 1 give up Fatime: but not till theu." "On your honor," exclaimed Omar, spring ing to his feet, "you give up Fatime, if I ob tain water from this rock?'' "If you do," said the knight, astonished that the Turk should have understood him literally, l " I pledge my knightly word to release your mistress and all my prisoners ransom-free.' What is impossible to youth and love ? Omar, aided by the captive Turks, set to^work, and long aud pntientlv did they labor at the un yielding stone, 'fhree wearisome years were Jiasscd, and they saw themselves apparently as ar from success as at the commencement, when, almost exhausted with fatigue nnd de spair, the jovful cry of" Water I \\ alerl" burst on their ears. The spring was found, and Fatiine was free 1 A Goi.pin Rci.e.?A golden role for n young lady is to converse always with vour female friends as if a gentleman were of the party; and with young men, as if your iemak- com panions were present. A I'Aiirru. ArrAis occurred last Monday in PhiW?didph>a. A poor, but reaoectable family, consisting of a widowed mother and b**r ?on and daughter, reside in West Phila delphia. The daughter, a young girl under ago, aomc lime since received the attentions of an individual aauied Alexander It. Gill, a moul der, employed in one of the factories on thin hide of the Schuylkill. (Jill, it in alleged, by dint of threats, succeeded in ruining the poor girl, and afterward* treated her in the most hrutal manuer. His victim, frightened at her situation, endeavored to conciliated the author of her ruin, but bis couduct was brutal in the ex treme. The brother of the girl, it seems, is in very j?oor health; he yesterday sent for Gill, and ap jiealed to him to contribute to the support of the ruined sister and her offspring, avowing his own inability to hear the burden imposed upon him. .Gill declared his willingness to marry the sinter, and last night at 7 o clock was fixed for the wedding?every thing was in readiness, but the groom did not make his appearance. The brother is said to be a pious and very ex emplary young man, but rendered desperate by the conduct of Gill, he this morning went to the lioarding house of the latter, at the corner of Callowhill and Nixon streets, and had an interview with him. Some words passed be tween them, and the brother drew a pistol from his pocket, for the purpose, as he declared, of shooting the destroyer of his sister. The weapon was cocked, and exploited pre maturely, the entire load passing through the right hand and wounding the leg of the unfor tunate man. The sufferer was conveyed home in a high state of excitenieut. A warrant for the arrest of Gill on the charge of seduction was issued and placed in the hands of an offi cer of the Marshal's Police.
