The Shnumbttrg Trial.?Tho jury who re tired with the ceee of the United States vs. Cap tain Shaumburg, on Thursday last, did eot make up their verdict until Saturday night, when they sealed it and retired to their respective homes. From that time until the opeainf of the criminal court, yesterday, there vu much speculation as to what the verdict was. Before Judge Crawford had taken his seat, the room was crowded with spectators, anxious to lenrn the result of the ju rors' deliberations. The seal having been broken, the verdict was read: " Guilty of assault and bat tery, but not with intent to kill." It took the ma jority of the assemblage and eitixens by surprise, a ad has ever since formed a topic of conversation all over Washington. it will be recollected that Captain Shaumburg, about twenty months ago, shot Mr. Edward II. Fuller, in front of the National Hotel, because of personal dificulties between them. Hence the in dictment end the trial. The judge, during the day, sentenced Captain Shaumburg to six months imprisonment in the eounty jail, end to pay a fine of one hundred dol lars.

Since the 30th June last, and up to the 1st of this month, there ha* been **>?)lected on acconnt of the taxes tor 1837 to 1851 inclusive, the sum of. $2,677 88 And on account of taxes for 1852 the sum of.. 8,134 57 10,812 45 Making the arreages for those years due March 1, 1854 50,114 72 Of which there is due for the years 1837 to 1851 inclusive, the sum , of $43,105 03 And for the year 1852 only the sum of. 7,009 69 $50,114 72 The amount of taxes collected since the 30th June last, up to February 28th, inclusive, is $128,001 37 Of which this sum was on account of taxes prior to 1SS3.... $10,812 43 And this sum on account of taxes for the year 1853 117,188 94 $128,001 37 In the foregoing statements fhe gross smount of taxes is given without the deduction for prompt payment and expenses of collection. The net sum deposited by the collector of taxes, during the year ending June 30 last, was $172,118 23, and the amount deposited from July 1 laat. up to Feb ruary 9lf laat, inclusive, is $117,080 66. The net amount of taxea collected and depo ailed by the collector of tuei to the credit of the corporation for each of the following yearn, is: For the year ending lune 30, 1650.. 8100,691 36 Do. do. 1851.. 126,384 33 Do. do. 1852.. 110,758 71 Do. do- 1853..- 17*2,118 33 From which it will be seen that the amount last year exceeded that of uny of the preoeeding years the aum of 945,734. The net aum of 9172,118 23, collected and ac counted for by the collector of taxea for the year ending June 30 last, was on account of Aneuul taxea 9142,052 15 Special taxes...' 25,816 Oh School taxea 3,650 00 Of which amounta, the following were on account of the annual taxes for the year 1852 $94,(539 49 Special taxea 11.903 07 School taxes 3,650 00 Leaving as the nett amount collected, on account of annual taxes for the year prior to 1852 .... $48,012 (50 Special..,, do 13,912,41 $172,118 23 110,193 10 61,925 07 The amount of the assessment of real and personal property in thii city. as returned by the assessors for the year ending June 30 laat, is $14,555,830 And of stocks of all kinds, banking capital, Arc 808,200 Total $15,424,090 Of the above aum of $868,260 returned as the amount of stock and banking capital, the sum of $640,962 ia returned as banking capital, leaving only the sum of $221,298 as the amount of stocks of all kinds, and public and private securities, held by our citizens, subject to taxation. This amount is of course greatly below the real ?mount of stocks, &c., held by our citizens, and shows how incorrect the last assessment was, so far u that description of property is concerned. It was known to be the first assessment of stocks made under the powers given to the corporation by the amended charter of 1848, and necessarily much difficulty was experienced by the assessors in the new undertaking. The total funded debt of the corporation on'the 30th of June, 1853, was $793,800. The sum of $25,000 was borrowed under the acts of June and December, 1852. to meet the Jressing demands on account of the year ending une 30, 1852; $15,000 of this sum has been paid off during the present fiscal year.

From the returns made for the year end ing June 30 last, under the act of June 23, 1845, it appears that the quantity of lumber measured and in spected was, feet 9,819,712 Wood, measured and inspected,cords.. 42,191 Tobacco, inspected, hogsheads 90 Flour, inspected, barrels 1,000 Fish, (salted,) inspected, barrels 523 Liquor, inspected, gallons 19,213 Hay, straw, and fodder weighed, tons. 3,201 The expenditure, on account of the improvement of the Washington canal up to June 30 last, were... $113,051 71 Of which amount there was appro priated by the United States 40,000 00 Expended by this corporation $73,051 71 i The revenue from the canal for the fiscal year ending June 30 last was $7,440 33 And the year before it was 0,345 07 Being an increase of 1,103 00 It appears from the message that for the year ending August 31, 1853, the police officers paid over to the corporation from fines, Arc., more than half of the expense of the whole establishment, and within $1,750 of the entire amount of their own salaries for the year, and that during the seven months ending March 31 last, while the expenses of the whole (including salaries of chief | of police, officers, and magistrates) amounts to 0,650 00 They have paid to this corporation.. 5,375 05 Leaving as the part of the police es tablishment for the seven months only $1,270 95 The salaries of the sixteen police of ficers for the seven months amount to $4,550 00 Which is $823 05 less thun the nmount paiJ to the corporation by them. The number of pupils attending the the public schools the Inst year was about the same as the preceding year, upwards of twothousand. The expenditures on account of the schools, amounted to the sum of.. $15,578 51 The income to the school fund for the year was: From interest on stock $3,032 40 Do do- on school tax 3,050 00 $6,GS2 40 Leaving to be provided for from the general fund $8,890 00 The mayor transmits the report of the board of I health in relation to the mortality in this city during the year ending June 30th last, in which the presi dent of the board says : " I congratulate you and | our fellow-citizens on the evidence they afford of the general healthfulness of our population and their almost total exception from from all epidemic aud infectious diseases. Eleven hundred and fif teen interments in one year from a population ap proaching filly thousand is a very small per cent age." The mayor says: "An institution for the correction and reform of juvenile offenders is very much needed in our city, and I earnestly invito your at tention to the subject in the hope that you will give it your early consideration. We have no place for the confinement of this class of offenders, but in the common jail and the'Work-house, where they are in association with the most depraved ; and we all know what is the effect of such inter course upon the young culprit. Such an institu tion as the one referred to will remedy this crying evil, and may be the means of reclaiming to the paths ef virtue and usefulness many of the boys who are now growing up in vice and depravity around us. It is a subject of deep interest and importance, and I cannot too urgently press it upon your attention." The message abounds in many good and whole some recommendations ; among them, a change in the organization of the office of surveyor, and that the engineering duties of the corporation shall be performed by an officer who should have the general superintendence of the improvements ofl the city, and he held responsible for their proper execution.

Jrc. Apr 2?3teod Central JnltHijjuut. Later from Mexico.?By the arrival of the brig John Williams, Captain Goodapced, we are Slaced m po*?ecaioti of papers from the city of lexico to the 9th instant. The UuinertiJ aaya that all the news from Aca pulco shows the speedy failure of the insurrection j .ref' 'ts want of material, and the gradual drawing together of the government forces around it, while at the aame time the popu lations to which it looked for partisans are send ing in their adhesion to tbe general government. The government has placed Acapulco under em bargo, ns the seat of an iasurrection. At the same time it has issued severe decrees, punishuig all who may talce any part in the insurrection, either in arms or coutisel, or by /urnishiiig the insurrec tionists supplies, with confiscation, imprison ment, &c. General La Vega, accused of being of being the accomplice of Count llaousset Boulbon, has ad- ! dressed a letter to Santa Anna, denying the charge, and declaring his fidelity to the nation, and ' his admiration of Santa Anna as its best citizen and highest authority. Iu Dcrango, near Jaco, the government forces, under Don Simon Moreno, had, on the 14th of February, given an extraordinary blow to the In dians in that quarter. They marched upon them in the night, surprised them in a canon at half past iour in the morning, killed seventy-two of them, recovered tweuty-five captives,and retook a large number of horses and cattle. Among the ?lain Indians were the celebrated Comanche chief Mague and two other chiefs. The Mexican! had only six wounded. The Mexicans had only six wounded. This is the most brillinnt achievement of their Indian warfare for fifty years past. The generals attribute it to the new discipline, and the spirit of patriotism and of honor which has lately been infused into them. Santa Anna has issued a decree inviting Euro pean colonists into the republic. The colonists must be Roman Cntholics of good character, and of some industrious occupation. To such as have not the means of paying their passage, it is given in vessels provided by the government and is to be repaid in two years. To each indi ?erJl colonist, a square of land of two hundred and filty yards, and to each family of three per sons, a square of one thousand yards. Double these quantities will be given to such as pay their own passage. The lands are to be paid for at their nssessed value in five years, during which they must reside on them. They will at the same time acquire the rights of citizenship. They are allowed to bring in, free of duty, their clothes, tools and beasts of labor. The Orden has an article on the North Ameri cans and the Mexicans. In this, it says of us, that we are very presumptuous, being rendered so by the flattery of our own writers; but that the government is as weak asthe people are vain ; that we take to ourselves the exclusive name of Americans, as if there were none others but our selves; that in this manner we already consider ourselves the rightful owners of the whole conti nent. At Mazatlan had arrived Don Pedro Valdez, lately appointed governor of Sinoloa, with 1,200 men. Senor Blancarte had just embarked for Lower California with 700. Another body of COO men had lately gone from Leon. Another party of 700 men, with six pieces of artillery, had marched from Guadalajara. On the 21st of February, the Indians had killed at San Miguel, in Zacatecas, five herdsmen, and at C lenequita, the family of Salnzar, composed of live men and sundry women. Only two women escaped. The Mcxican papers announce that the Mexi can government has accepted the modifications of the Gadsden treaty proposed by the President. Senor Ampudia lia-j been elevated to the rank of lieutenant-general.?N. O. Crescent. March 24. A Bouncing Girl.?Miss Rosina Delight Rich ardson, according to a writer in the Boston Jour nal is a delectable armful, belonging to the State of New Hampshire, where she resides with her father, a substantial farmer. She is thus de scribed : " Miss Rosina is nineteen years of age, is five feet three ai d a quarter inches in height, measures live feet four and a quarter inches around the waist, six feel two inches around the hips, twen ty-two inches around the arm, above tho elbow and two feet ten inches in a straight line across the shoulders. At birth, she weighed six pounds; at tive years, one hundred and forty-eight; at ten years, two hundred and sixty-eight pounds; and now, at nineteen years, four hundred and seventy eight pounds. On estimating the quantity of cloth in her clothing when dressed for a ride on a win ter's day, we found it to contain ninety-eight and a half yards of three-quarter wide cloth. She has brown hair, dark blue eves, is of fair complexion, and has what phrenologists would call a well balanced head, the perceptive orgnns predominat ing. She can knit, spin, weave, make a shirt, or a batch of bread ; is a good singer, and plays the piano with taste and skill; is considered one of the best schollars in the town where she resides is courteous, affable, and lively in con versation ; and evinces a general knowledge which might raise a blush on the cheeks of some of our cilv belles." " 3 Preparation* for War In England ?Ten men-of-war gun brigs are to be immediately com missioned to guard the eastern ond northeastern coast ol England from privateers. A battery is being constructed on the Mersey to defend the approaches to Liverpool. It will mount fourteen sixty-eight-poundors. The interior is in tended to form a barracks for one hundred and fifty men and twelve officers. A further increase of l.r>,000 men is to be made to the army. Fifty captains are to ha promoted to majorities, fifty lieutenants to companies, fifty ensigns to lieutenancies, leaving of course fifty com missions to be filled up. Arrangements have been made by the govern ment with a first-rate London brewery to supply the troops while in Turkey, &c., with the best ex port porter at three pence per quart. Orders have been issued for the instant return of several regiments and of a lurge portion of artil lery now in the colonies. 1 he Himalaya is lent to the government at a hire of .?17,000 a month, Hnd other ships at ?14,000, ?12.000, Arc., in proportion to their ton nage. The Army Despatch says that Colonel Colt's re volvers have been supplied to a large proportion of officers of the guards and general officers march ing for the seat of war. The Russians, it is said, are armed with revolvers. Several deserters from the thirty-third regiment rejoined head-quarters previous to its embarkation lor Constantinople, in the hope of being' pardoned and allowed to proceed with tbe corps to Turkey. Desperate Rencounter on the Steamer S. E. J. Trabue.?The Louisville Courier says that, soon after this boat got under way from New Or leans, one of tho coal-boatmen of Pittsburg, who occupied the deck, and were noisy and turbulent, attacked a Wabash man, who had given no provo cation, knocked him down and beat him dreadfully, i wo of his friend* interferon# were beaten nearly to death by the rioters, who had sworn to take the vessel. One ol the two had his arm broken by a blow from an nxe. The deck bar was open, and another of the passengers, a small man, while taking a drink, was seized by a bully, choked, and thrown down, and stamped. He was suffered to gain his feet, and he then drew a large knife and inflicted a terrible wound in the big man's breast. 1 he coal boatmen becoming more turbulent and dangerous. Captain Tucker armed his crew, of whom twenty-one were Spaniards, with short clubs, hatchets, &c., and thereupon a melee en sued of the greatest confusion and strife.

Gerard Noel, M. P.. dated Mexico, January 2, 1851, and describing . successful attempt to aaeend Popocatepetl in the depth of winter: ? ' Pnn1 Trnt?rteJd? from an exP?dition to Popocatepetl, the highest mountain in North America, 17,000 feet above the level of the sea. I believe there is no record of an ascent 1 before at this season of the year, although it has been frequently done in May and June. ine first night of our ascent we slept at a but at the line where vegetation ceases, and par petiu snow commences; and at a quarter past live, the next morning, we started lor the aum nnt, one of the guides leading. At eight 0 clock, I found myself 100 yards ahead of the rest of the party, (consisting of four;) at nine, out ot sight of the party altogether; and ut eleven o clock, I reached the crater. The crater is a vast basin, three miles in circum ference, and 900 feet deep; in some,parts per pendicular, in others great masses of project ing rock form bold and stupendous outlines, with enormous ioicles hanging from every point. 1 he volcano itself has long ceased to show any signs of eruption. I began to feel very much numbed with cold, and my eyes suffered a good deal from the glare of the snow. I should have been very glad of something to eat, hav ing had nothing but a cup of coffee and a biscuit before leaving the hut, but the guide who earned the breakfast had remained (the rufban !) with the others who had not come up. Having examined the crater for about a quarter of an hour, I told the guide who bad per severed with me to lead away up to the top. The fellow declared it was impossible, but not in ending, as you may imagine, to give it up (having come so far) without any push, 1 started for the top alone. I was now only able to take three steps at a time without stopping, as my legs began to give way, and I had op pression of the head and chest. "A little after 1, p. m.,I reached the top, and enjoyed one of the finest views conceivable of the great valley of Mexico, and looked down ou the twin volcano, (I forget the Mexican name, but in English it means the White Lady from its top resembling a woman lying at full length,) seemingly miles below me, but actu ally only about two thousand feet. The cold was too intense for me to remain more than en minutes at the top, and I commenced the descent to the crater. By this time the moun tain was enveloped in cloudB, and I could see nothing distinctly, bo I commenced a further descent, and in a few moments came in sight of the pole ot Mr. S , (one of my compa gnons du voyage,) and soon after of himself, ly ing down, black in the face, and wishing to let alone to die. A little lower down 1 saw u ; rolll,nS about like A drunken man, but still, with undoubted pluck, struggling to wards the summit at the rate of about a yard in three minutes. However, after a little rest and encouragement, they both rallied, and I returned with them as far as the crater, but no human effort could 'get them any higher I attribute my being able to reach the top to my wind ; I never felt want of breath at any time, while the others blew like porpoises. In our descent from the crater weencouuteredtheonly real danger, "At first the snow was gocd walking, but as we came lower, where the sun makes a sheet ot ice of the surface of the snow, it became so slippery that we frequently lost our footing, aud if, after a slip, you get 60 much impetus that you can t stop yourself, the certainty is that you arrive at the bottom in much the same condition as the man whoj'umped off the mon ument. At one time I almost gave myself up. However, no accident did happen, though it makes me creep to think of the slide I took. At j, p. m., with my hands cut to bits, my nails worn to the quick with holding on, I reached the hut, and there got my breakfast, glad to think it was over, as hungry as fourteen hours' abstinence and battling with seventeen thou sand feet of mountain snow and ice could make me. One of my eyes is completely 4 bunged up, the other just enables me to see to write this. My face is a mass of raw flesh and blis ters ; but I have the satisfaction of having perched upon a higher mountain than exists in hurope, and climbed two thousand five hun dred leet nearer to heaven than Albert Smith." b i. ax seed .-?We wish to call the attention of our country friends particularly to a few facts in relation to the article that heads this notice. Jn the numerous list of western products.it has not escaped our attention that Jluxsecd, above all the rest, lias been most constantly aud eagerly sought for, and that for three succes sive years the article has been appreciating, the demand being far ahead of the supply, and the east and west both in the market, while the demand lor linseed oil was partially sup plied by large importations, both of oil and seed, from abroad, the. price kept down to about one dollar per bushel for western seed in this city ; but of late, the immense consump tion ot oil, the demand for oil-cake to ship to hugland, and the inadequate increase in pro duction of American seed, has given a value and importance to the article, which makes it worthy of the attention of our largest pro ducers. \\ c have no hesitation in saying that Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri, can realize a mil lion ot dollars this season, from this article, ouTboT anj ?ther Iiroduct ot J" ,hA-"a"?e,lLfor the last six months fro n o to fel CO, the average being $1 45, and the stocks of seed are pretty much exhaust ed all over the country. sui?th?n? 8!? n0W' if )'ou wish to make a sure thing of it, there are responsible parties standing ready to contract for any quantity at a high pnee ; but all should at least put a few acres la tke article, to test the fact of its profi ta il* infr00' and We are 8Ure an7 one doing so will realize a remunerating price for their Louislll^en Integer.

MOR0ZTB INVIGORATING CORDIAL, A Phenomenon lu Medicine.?Health Re stored and Life Lengthened, by Dr. Morse's Invigorating Elixir or Cordial. AT first the properties attributed to Professor Morse's Invigorating Elixir or Cordial were deemed fabulous. The public often deceived could not believe the simple and sublime truths an nounced by the discoverer. But facts, undeniable facts, attested by witnesses of the highest class and character, are now triumphing over all doubts. Incredulity is overthrown by s mass of testimony which is perfectly irresistible. Tho Elixir remedies in all cases the deplorable evils arising from a misuse of the various organs which make up the wonderful machine called man. It restores to full vigor every delicate func tion connected with that mysterious compound agency of matter and mind, necessary to the re production of human life. To persons of feeble muscular frame, or deficient in vital power, it is recommended as the only means of communicat ing that energy which is necessary to the proper enjoyment of all the natural appetites, as well as the higher mental attributes. Its beneficial effects n? not confined to either sex or to any age. Tho^ feeble girl, the ailing wife, the listless, enervated youth, the over-worn man of business, the victim of nervous depression, the individual suffering from general debility, or from the weakness of ? single organ, will all find immediate and perma nent relief from tho use of this incomparable reno vator. To those who have n predisposition to paralysis, it will prove a complete and uufuiliug safeguard against that terrible malady. There are many, perhnps. who have so trifled with their constitutions, that they think themselves beyond the reach of medicine. Let not even these de spair. The Elixir deals with disease as it exists, without reference to causes, and will not ooly re move the disorder itself, but REBUILD THE BROKEN CONSTITUTION The derangements of the system, leading to nervous diseases, and the forms of nervous dis ease itself, are so numerous that it would require a column to enumerate the maladies for which this preparation is a specific. A few, however, may bo enumerated, viz: neuralgia tiu-doloureux, headache, incipient paralysis, hysteria, palpitation of the heart, spinal affections, muscular debility, tremors, flatulence, a pricking < sensatiou in tbo flesh, numbness, torpidity of the liver, mental de pression, weakness of the will, indisposition to move, faintness after exercise, broken sleep, and terrifying dreams, inability to remain in one place or position, weaking of the procreative organs, sexual incompetency, melancholy, monomania, fluor nlbtis, sinking at the stomach, female irre* gularities, a chronic tendency to miscarriage, emaciation, and all complaints growing out Of & free indulgence of the passions, and all barrenness that does not proceed from organic causes beyond the reach of medicine. Whenever the organs to be acted upon are free from malformation or strictural diseases, it is averred that MORSE'S INVIGORATING ELIXIR Will replace weakness with strertgth, incapacity with elllciency, irregularity with uniform and nat ural activity, and this fiot only without hazard of reaction, but with a happy effect on the general organization. Bear in uiind that all maladies, wherever they begin, finish with the nervous sys tem, and that the paralyzation of the nerves of motion and sensatioa is physical death. Bear m mind, also, that, for every kind of nervous disease the Elixir Cordial is the only reliable preparation known. CURE OF NERVOUS DISEASES. No language can convey an adequate idea of the immediate and almost miraculous chango which it occasions in the diseased, debilitated, and shattered nervous system, whether broken down by excess, weak by nature, or impaired by sick ness, the unstrung and relaxed organization is at once braced, revivified, and built up. The mental and physical symptoms of nervous disease vanish together under its influence. Nor is the effect temporary; on the contrary, the relief is perma nent, for the cordial properties of the medicine reach the constitution itself, and restore it to its normal condition. Well may the preparation bo called tho MEDICINAL WONDER Of the nineteenth century. It is, as the first sci entific man in the world would have admitted, that miracle of medicine heretofore supposed to have no existence. A STIMULANT THAT ENTAILS NO RE ACTION. Its force is never expanded, as is the case with opium, alcoholic preparation?, and all other exci tants. The effect of these is brief, and it may well besaidofliim who takes them: "the last state of that man is worse than the first." But the Elixir is an exhilarant without a single drawback?safe in ill operation, perpetual in its happy influence upon the nerves, the mind, and the entire organization ; it will ulso remove depressions, excitement, u tendency to blush, sleeplessness, dislike of society, incapacity for study or business. LOSS OF MEMORY, Confusion, giddiness, rush of blood to the head, melancholy, mental debility, hysteria, wretched ness, thoughts of self-destruction, fear of insanity, hypochondriasis, dyspepsia, general prostration, irritability, nervousness, inability to sleep, disease** incident to females, decay of the propagating func tions, hysteria, monomania, vague terrors, palpi tation of the heart, impotcncy, constipation, tVe , tk*c., from whatever cause arising it is, if there is any reliance to be placed on human testimony, absolutely infallible.
