A Parallel.?We have, on several occasion*, alluded to the proceeding* in ih? " spiritual con ferences " held every Friday ev?ing in Temper ance Hall, and exposed some ot the vagaries of the believers and operators in tie so-called inex plicable science. It seems, hovever, that those gentlemen are not allowed to tel their Munchau sen stories without stern disseit on the part of others respecting their truth in He absence of de monstrations to sustain unblusitng, broad asser tions. La?t Friday night, the Rev. Dr. Reese, who, ac cording to his own acknowledgment, bas lor a year past been''a seeker after truth,' and has in tended " private circles," fraikly pronounced the " spiritual" scheme a gross humbug, and in prac tice, sheer delusion ; saying iti* now the duty ol its advocate-4pJ*&tablish the contrary, if they can! Captain Porter, of the navy, (free discussion be ing open to ail) addressed the audience, wishing merely lo run a brief parallel. He said that mod ern "spiritualism" is a new addition of Mahom medanisin, transplanted from Asia to the United States; not in all its oriental magnificence, but clothed in a Yankee dress. The Mabommedaus believe in seven spheres; so do the spiritulists ; and likewise in gross and sublimated enjoyments. Whether the latter, like the former, indulge in wine in the far-ofi regions, he did not know, but it was certain that here be low. they drink much of " the milk of human kindness," according to their charitable profes sions. He mentioned other concurrent points in the two systems, much to the amusement of the "?unconverted" part of the auditory, aud to the chagrin of the disciples. In conclusion, he said this scheme of \ankee i/ed Mahominedaniera reminded him of the poor man who won an elephant at a ralHe, and then did not know what to do with it. If he should convey it home, he could not feed it; if he shut it up to starve, it would break loose, and, running into the streets, Injure the people ; and if he should kiil U, the body would pu^rif> on his premises, he being too scarce of chauge to remove the carcass So with '"spiritualism." It could not be main tained by proofs; arguments were overthrown, and the " elephant" let loose to injure the com- j munity, (producing insanity;) and, to kill the am- j mal, would leave the believers with a huge de- ! cayed monster beneath their noses, subjecting ihem to pity and contempt, and to the charge that , they had been most grossly deluded. ??? McCormlck's Reaper.?It is due to those who feel an interest in this celeb rated machine, to | say that the decision of the Supreme Court, j noticed in another column, reversing the decision j of the court below, and remanding the case back for a new trial, related wholly to the question as to the amount of damages found by the jury in ibe case, under the ruling of the court, as appear? from the following extract from the opinion of the court: "Numerous exceptions were taken by defen dants iu the course of the trial, and to various in structions contained in the charge of the court. Most of those involve no general or important legal principle, and would not be understood without prolix statement- with regard to the facts of the ease, and the structure of the peculiar machine? To notice them in detail would be both tedious and unprofitable. We deem it sufficient, there fore. to say thut the defendants have (ailed to sup port their exceptions as to the rulings ol the court concerning the testimony; and that the charge of the learned judge is an able and correct exposition of the law as applicable to the case, with the exception of the points which we pro pose now to examine, and which are contained 111 the following portion of the charge.1' The suit in question was brought, for the in fringeuient of two patents, one of which was granted in 1845, and the other in 1847 ; the latter of which only was on trial, in consequence ol the alleged absence of witnesses on the part of de fendants to enable them to proceed with the for mer. While the question of damages thereupon goes back for a new trial, it will be seen that Mr. MeCormick's patent is fully sustained by this de cision, and his character as an inventor further vindicated. Mr. McCormick has done much for his country in the invention of his reaping machine; and the result of this suit only shows something of the : difficulties that are encountered by meritorious j inventors in preventing piracies of their patented inventions; the most valuable being the most in fringed upon the world over. The Water Works? Uttle Falls Bridge. > diC.?The House of Representatives, yesterday, while acting on the Deficiency bill, refused, by a vote of yeas 47, nays 100, to concur in the Sen ate's amendment, appropriating five hunded thou sand Collars for continuing the works for bringing water into the city of Washington. As this, with other amendments disagreed to by the House, will probably be a subject for a joint committee of conference on the part of the two branches ol,, Congress, we cannot regard the action of yester day as final. In addition to other troubles which beset this great enterprise, on the present plan, the Great Falls Manufacturing Company have notified thr members of the House of Representatives, by circular, that " the works contemplated by the government will very materially interfere with their rights as riparian proprietors, owning all the water privileges at the place named, and hold ing valuable charters for manufacturing purpose* from the State of Virginia." They say they have no disposition to obstruct the work in question ; on the contrary," in a correspondence commenced by the agents of the government, they have made liberal offers, which have been treated with disre gard." It would, they say, " seem to be wise and prudent to settle the controversy involved in the facts stated, before making any important move ment in so grave a matter; at all eventa, they de sire to give distinct notice of their undeniable j lc^al claim in the premises." j Notwithstanding, the House, on Thursday, , seemed to favor the appropriation of $75,000 for the construction of a new bridge over the Poto- | mno, at thw*&le Falls, they yesterday non-con- i curred in the Senate's amendment for that pur- ( pose. This, too, may become a subject for a com mittee of conference on the disagreement between the two branches of Congress. 1 The House, however, have agreed, in conjunc- ' tion with the Senate, to appropriate $9,770 for completing and keeping in order the ground, south of the President's House, and $1,000 for j furnishing additional iron settees for the Prest- j dent's aud Capitol grounds. Garden Products.?A few tomatoes, the first of the season, were sold in the Centre market, yesterday, at fifty cents a dozen ; a plateful of new , " small potatoes" was exhibited; cherries, from sixteen to twenty-five, and strawberries from , eighteen to fifty cents a quart; green peas, thirty- j seven and a half cents a peck. A FeatiTSl, for the benefit of the Methodist Episcopal Church south, will be held at Odd Fel lows' Hall, throughout the present week. Mad Dog.? Officer lioss recently shot a dog. having symptoms of hydrophobia, near the corner of F and l'ith streets. <Jome of our citizens let loose their dogs at night after keeping them con fined during the day. Thus the mayor s proclama tion is only, in part, complied with, to the regret ol the larger part ol the community. Silas H. Hill, highly appreciating tha nomina tion by his friends, as a candidate tor the mayor- , ally, respectfully dsolinss the honor. j Newi from the Pacific. From the PUcer Time* and Trauseript, May let. Walker's Partt.?About the 7th instant, a party of ten or twelve of Walker's men cauie up to the Sonora side of the Colorado, nearly in a naked and starving condition. They stated that about ten days previous Walker crossed the river some forty miles below the month of the Gila, bv means of rafts and swim miug. They represent that the whole com mand were in a most deplorable condition. The Cucupa Indians were here detected steal ing some of their stolen cattle, and in (he at tack upon them seven or eijrht of the Indians were killed. Alter this Walker recrossed the river at the same point, with only twunty five men, and started back for Santo Tomas. Walker is represented as being desperate from disappointment. From Sonora.?Intelligence from Sonora is to the 7th March. The condition of the people id miserable in the extreme. The depredations of the Apaches are unabated; provisions scarce, and no money in the country. Unprotected, unemployed, and starving, the people are flee ing by every opportunity. Emigrants arrive almost daily at the fort. The intelligent portion of the people are represented as being very anxious to become citizens of the United States, and it is only in becoming suck that they expect any relief. Explosion of the Steamer Secretary.? Messrs. Gordon k Steen, owpers of the ma chinery of the " Secretary," make a statemeut from which we extract the following. "The boiler, of the Secretary was what is called a tubular boiler?shell 5 feet in diameter, and 14 feet long?with 06 3-inch tubes. (Norris', of Philadelphia, best lap-weld tubes.) The boiler was proved with a cold water pres sure from the hydraulic pump of 200 lbs. to i he square inch?upon two separate occasions, to be sure of the strength. The safety valve was then graduated, so that 80 lbs. of steam could be carried, even if the weight was carried to its extreme point. The pumps were made to comply with the regulates of the United States Steamboat Act. Mr. Bessie, the en gineer, who has met such an untimely end, has been in our employ three years. He superintended the construction of this ma chinery. "With the engineer, Mr. Bessie, we en trusted our property, and would have entrusted our lives in travelling on the boat." The Arrival of Col. Fremont, by the Stockton boat on the night of the 17 th, has re lieved the anxiety which was experienced on account of the long period that has elapsed since that gentleman and his party were heard from through Col. Babbitt. Col. Fremont left his companions encamped near Stockton, which point they had reached in safety and good health, having lost but one of their number ?luring the long and arduous trip. It seeins that the account of the suffering endured by the party has been much exaggerated. The person who perished by the way, had lagged behind, and resting in the snow, was fonnd <lead by those who went back in search of him. The party crossed the Sierra Nevada near the head of the Merced river, encountering but little snow at the Pass. The route travelled is reported as favorable for a railroad. Awful Explosion in Oregon.?The Wil liamette Falls Company's new steamer Gazette left her wharf at Oregon city at half past six o'clock, a. m., on the 8th of April, and hadjnst landed at Canemah, at fifteen minutes before seven, when a terrible explosion of her boilers blew her into atoms, killing about twenty per sons and wounding many others. Fragmcuts of Lolies were found scattered in every direc tion ; some were blown into the air, others to the shore; but the greater part of the killed found were lying about the deck forward, among all kinds of fractured machinery and freight. Mr. David Paige, chief superintendent of the company, bad his head literally dashed to pieces, and could not have been recognized by other means than his clothes. Many others were as badly mutilated. Conviction of Sknor Del Valle, Mexi can Consul.?The trial of the Mexican consul, Senor Luis del Valle, for enlisting men to bo engaged in foreign service, was concluded on the 20th inst, and resulted in the jury finding >i verdict of guilty, with a strong recommenda tion to the mercy of the court. The jury on their first balloting, rendered a unanimous ver dict. Motion for arrest of judgment was made by the defendent's counsel. From Acapclco.?The corrcsponpent of the Placer Times, says, (March 24 :) "By courier, which arrived to-day, we arc informed that an advanced picket of the gov ernment troops at the Mescala river, had been forced to fall back upon the main body at Chil pancingo; that failing in this, a force had been -ent to Costa Rico, if possible to get in Alvar ez's rear! The old mountain chief not liking his rear to be intruded upon by an unwelcome guest, dispatched a suitable force of themoun ain boys to inform them that lie is about the ' diggins.'" Gold in Oregon.?The Oregonian, of the 22d, has the following: "We have information that there is consid erable gold being taken out on the Yakima,by some parties who have been in that region dur ing the winter. " The Yakima heads near th'? Cascade moun tains, and empties into the Columbia near Walia Walla. The country is inhabited by Indians, who appear to have used every efTort to prevent the whites from examining it. Three years ago, an Indian brought to this city a quantity of gold dust which he obtained there. Those who have travelled over the country, represent that it has every appearance of a gold region for a great extent "It is said to be only about one hundred miles from the Dalles of the Columbia to where those now engaged are obtaining a considera ble quantity of the precious metal. We give the information as we hear it, making all due allowances for the usual exaggeration of rej ported gold discoveries." (From the Alt* Californl&n of May 1.] The Affair of the " Challenge." The great event of the fortnight ha# been the trial and conviction of the Mexican counsul for enlisting men for the Mexican army, and the ar rest of the French consul for refusing to appear as u witness. The following is a complete history of iho affair so far as it has been developed : About the middle of February the French con ?ul. Mr. Dillon. received information from Mexico that Count Raousset was geltinu up a tillibuster ing expedition in this city intended for the inva sion Sonora, and innirut lions to do his utmost to prevent the departure of the expedition. Mr. Dil lon inquired ami found that Count Raousset had nearly organized his expedition, had engaged ihe *hip Challenge, and had some of his provisions on board. Mr. Dillon published a noticc to all Frenchmen, warning them from having anything to do with any filibustering expedition, and be refu>rd to grant pn?ports to Sonora. Some days aliei wards Senor Del Valle, the Mexicau consul, called on Mr. Liillon. thanked him lor his published warning againM iillibustering. and saiu that he, ihe Mexican consul, was authorized by his gov ernment io draw otf Raousset's men by offering tliem a free passage to Sonora. and employment ? n the Mexican army, and requested that Mr. Dil Ion would grant passports. Mr. Dillon gave the Mexican consul an intro duction to the owners of the Challenge, partly for ihe purpose of withdrawing that vessel from Count Raousset. On the 4th of March Senor Del Valle made a contract with Messrs. Cavsllier and Chan vileau, to send 1,000 colonists to Guaymas on the Challenge, on or before the ?Oih oi March, for which O. C. were to receive $J2 lor each per ?on in drafts on the Mexican treasury. On the dth, Senor Del Va>le requested C. C. to make out a list of persons going, who were to be told when they applied for passage that they should verve in (be Mexican army one year, and receive therefor the regular pay of ihe Mexican soldiers, a gram of land at the end of the vear, and the rank they might have helu in a previous service. Such he said were hi* instructions frtiti the Mex ican government. On the Cih he wrote a letter with the MiliMauce of hi* instruction* 10 Mr L?iI lon. Ou the JVth he puhli?lied a notice offering free passage to Sonora to tho?? who wished to go. About this time General Wool entered into a cor respondence with Seitor Del Valle and Mr. Dillon in regard to the expedition. On the 15th, Del Valle. for wm< motive not yet clear, wrote to General Wool ihat it might be well to stop the Challenge. On the 2(>lh, Mr Dillon communicated to General Wool a copy of IjcI Valle'a letter of the Oth, giving the tenor of his in *tructions, and stating that the main purpose wan to break up Kuousset s expedition. Uy the 23d the list had been completed by C. Ac C. The list was headed ?? .List of men going to Sonora con tained no writteu engagement, but had the *igna tufes. age*. previous occupations, place* of birth, and rank in previous military services, it any. of the men. Tlie men were told that they should enter the Mexican army, but they were not re quired to make any express promise to serve in the army. On the 23d, the Challenge, when about to leave the |>ort, was stopped by the collector, because she had more than the lawful number of passengers on board. She attempted to leave on several oc casions, but was prevented. On the 27ih, a number of Frenchmen about to go on the Challenge, umde a formal protest against the detention ol that vessel, and asserted that they j had made no engagement whatever to enter the I Mexican army. On the 2Uth, the Challenge was ! libelled, and Del \ alle was ariested on the atlidavil i of C. Ac C., to whom, as it has been repeatedly j said in public on good authority and not denied, n i promise was made by hii agent of General Wool, I that if they would furnish their evidence against ' Del \ alle. the Challenge, with the expeditionists, should be permitted to depart. ? Tlie^ Challenge did depart on the 3d of April, with 350 men. though not without some objections on the part of the collector, who was induced to consent by the military authority insisting upon 1 the promise. During all this time General Wool did not inform Dillon, nor Del Valle, nor the Frenchmen, though in frequent communication with thi two former, that a United States law for | bid* enlistment, or that he would enforce the law, and during the same time the papers understood to be in his confidence, were charging the two consuls with conspiring to get, up a filibustering expedition. On the 17th the trial of Del Valle began, was continued on the lSth, was then postponed till'the W5th, on which day an attachment was issued to compel Dillon to appear as a witness for the de fendant. He had neglected a subpuMiu issued the day before. lie claimed to be exempt from al! compulsory ' process to appear as a witness under a treaty, but ; he was arretted by the marshal under the attach ment. lie banded,a written protest info the court ] against his arrest and declared himself a prisoner, 1 and that he would hold the court and all its officers responsible. Ou returning from the court lie sfruck his flag. *n the 20th the right of the court to 1 compel him to testily was argued. On the 27th | the court decided that lie could not be legally com- j pelled to testify. On the 28th Del Valle waseoi- j victed, with a recommendation to the mercy of the ! court. Dillon's flag remains struck. In answer to flu charges made against him lie has commenced the publication of his correspondence in relation to : the affair, including a letter written on the 27th , March to the French consul at Guyamas, recom mending the men on the Challenge to the consul's j favor, and requesting his aid to obiain employment for them as laborers or soldiers in Sonorit. General Wool has commenced publishing his ! correspondence likewise. Ihe whole affair has made a profound impres- j sion on the public mind. There has been >o:ne j very bad management on the part of the authori- | lies. 1 he exact purpose of the expedition will not ; be clear until we hear Irom Mexico and Sonora, 1 I hough there is no reason to doubt that Del Valle 1 did intend to recruit men. r The sentence of Del Valle has been fixed for the 15ih, and in the meanwhile he is held to b.iil in $10,000.

Straub, on the Nebraska-Kansas bill: "In this connexion, I must speak of the elo quent and powerful effort of Colonel Christian M. Straub, your dauntless and reliable repre sentative on the Nebraska-Kansas bill. It did honor to the indomitable constituency he rep resents, while throughout it was replete with ' argument and intense devotion to the great i principle of popular sovereignty?disdaining the narrow views, which men of minds less 1 comprehensive, have taken of this important subject; he paused not to touch minor details, i but lanched forth at once on the great merits of the question. He dealt sledge-hammer blows on the casques of the opposition, and we have heard that at least two votes were changed by this eloquent and powerful vindication of the leading measure of the administration, j When the speaker's hammer fell, at the close of his hour, the House, with one accord, rose and cried : 4 Go on?go on.' Thus was a favor granted to our representative, which was de nied to John Quincy Adams and Col. Benton, and only once before given ; that was to Gov. McDowell, (since dead,) of Virginia, whose speech on the occasion referred to, has already b?com? classic. Jefferson." j &elegtap|iic. By tha Bona* Line, expr?saly tor the Sentinel.

Boston, 10 a. m.?During the riot last night, James Batchelder, a special olflcer ol ihe United States marshal, was shot dead. At midnight two military , companies reached Court square and were qunrtered iu the city hall and court-house. A large force of officer* were detached for duty during the night outside the couri-hou.?e, aud throughout ihe whole night an additional force was inside fully aimed. At an early hour this morning a moh of 300 was assembled in Court square. The examination of Bum#' is now proceeding, and the inoli has in creased to 2,000 or 3,000 persons. A company of United Stales marines are now in the court-house, mid a regiment of Massachusetts miiitia have been ordered out. THHID DISPATCH. Boston, 1 p. m.?The examination of Burns is proceeding before Commissioner Loring. A com pany of United States troops from Fort Indepen dence, under Major Ridgely, and a company of marines from the navy-yurd, under Colonel Dulu ney, are stationed in th?i ?ourt-hou.se The In dependent Cadets and Boston Light Infantry oc cupy the city hall, court square, is crowded with the excited populace.

FOURTH DISPATCH. The counsel for the prisoner has moved a post ponement till Monday, which, after long argument, the commissioner has granted. Seveial while persons were arrested during the morning for attempting to excite the mob to acts of violence. Shortly afterwards Mayor Smith, attended by Sheriff Evelelh. appeared on the steps of the court-house aud addressed the mob, saying ? that the city authorities were determined to pre vent u riot, and sustain the laws of the city aud i country. The speech was cheered. It is reported that a special train i>< on its way from Worcester with several hundred'excited op ponents of the fugitive law. The mayor has issued a special bulletin calling on the citizens to preserve peace. Complaints were made at the police court to- 1 day against nine persons arrested last evening j The evidence of their participation in the attempt | to force open the court-house doors last evening 1 is said to be decisive. Anti-Slavery Incitement at Sjracuee.

Maryland, passed . through last night cu route for Baltimore. From the New Haven Register. One Hundred Gnus for Nebraska. At sunrise this morning, one hundred guns were fired from the public square, by order ot the democratic town committee, in honor ol the passage of the bill giving territorial gov ments to the people of Nebraska and Kansas, and the triumph of the principle of constitu tional freedom involved therein. Thirty-one guns were first fired for the thirtv-one sover eign States; then one each for Kansas ami , Nebraska; then thirteen for the original States, and the majority of the bill; then a salute for the President, followed by salutes in honor ot j Messrs. i'oucy and Ingersoll of this State, Douglas, Richardson, and the friends of the bill. We are not particularly partial todemonstra- ; tions of this noisy kind on party triumphs; ' but there b?f? been such an amount of misrep- | resentations, both of the bill and its friends? such a bold-faced system of abuse and calumny, from press, pulpit, and stump; that no one can question the propriety of the manifestation ol gladness which is felt by the friends of the bill on its final passage. The settlement of the vexed question of slavery, by the establishment of the principle of non-intervention, and leaving the whole question to those interested, under the guaran tees of the Constitution, will put an end to-that agitation which has been so fruitful of mischief and of danger to the Union. It can no more distract the legislation of Congress, or prove u bone of contention between the north and the south, but to tha highest courts of the country will bo left all cases involving either its exist ence or perpetuity. Confidence will be restored between the different sections of the country, trade will derive a new impetus, good feeling succeed to jealousy aud hatred, and the meas ure will soon be one of the most popular ever adopted by Congress. The friends of the Union will takl their position upon it, in such num bers as to defy opposition, and keep the fell spirit of a ruthless and blind fanaticism within proper bounds. Based upon the Constitution, carrying out the first principles of our republi can institutions, yielding nothing but what fair ly belongs to State sovereignty and individual rights, it is emphatically a peace measure, and impregnable to assault. The free States are not injured by this act; but by a reasonable concession will be greatly benefitted. The territory in question will be as free from slavery as if the restriction of 1820 had never been adopted ; while a hateful geographical line, over which one portion ol the Union has taunted the other, and attempted | to act the conservator where they were not as particularly interested, and over which nature itself had established laws irrevocable by man, will be obliterated, and the forms of local gov ernment tako such shape as the inhabitants of the new Territories may desire, subject only to j such restrictions as are imposed by the Consti tution of the United States?the highest au thority known to the people. Looking, therefore, above the bluster and bitterness with which this bill has been assail ed, and which is one of the natural conse quences in the establishment ol all great re forms, it is essentially a season for rejoicing with all well-wishers of their country.

E. G. Par ker appeared for complainant, and read tho necessary documents from the circuit court of Virginia, setting forth the claim. YVilliam Bent (of Virgiuiu) was called as a witness. He knew Burns, lie was born a slave in the family of Mr. Suttle. He was missing from Richmond on the 24th of March. Had not seen him since. Messrs. Richard II. Dana, and C. M. Kllis, who appeared as coun sel for Burns, asked for a postponement of the caso to Saturday, which waj granted by the commissioner. ? It is said that during last evening, Burns | had an interview with his former master, at which he conseuted to go back with him. The America's News.?The wires east of Boston vere cut in several places this morn inar, May 25th.

Tue Richmond Flour Mills.?The vast amount of flour manufactured in this city, and the immense consumption of grain by onr mills, will give interest to a few facts we are about to state concerning their operations and capacity.

Taliaferro & Co.'s new mill in Man chester with its present eight pair of o feet 3 inch burrs, and Messrs. Crenshaw & Fisher's j new mill of seven pair of like sized burrs, will j together grind 700 bbls. per dny ; and the two i establishments of Mr. J. B. Bragg, and Messrs. ; Layne & Co., 300 bbls. per day?making for [ the whole manufacturing capacity of the mills, i not less than 3,000 bbls. per day; to produce I which, 15,000 bushels of wheat are necessary. ! These mills average about 200 working days daring the year, and will therefore manufacture 1 <>00,000 bbls. of flour, and consume about j 3,000,000 of bushels of wheat from the 1st of I August to the 1st of May. The reader may at ! once see tho immense sum paid out by our millers annully to the farmer. Besides, there | will be about $300,000 paid for flour barrels, j which cost 50 cents each. In addition to the milling power alluded to above is as follows: Messrs. Taliaferro Jc Co.. intend adding eight pair of burrs to their superb mills; but they will not be ready for the next crop. Messrs. Warwick & Baricsdale of the '? Gallego mills" have just laid the foundation of a mill larger than any yet built here, which kre already larger than any in the Union, if not in-the world. This immense structure will be 1G5 feet deep, 8.j feet wide in front, and ninety feet wide in the rear. It is located ju?t across the street from the presentGallego mills, will have about three stories below the level of the basement of the present mills! The build ing will, therefore, be about eleven stories high! It will be a wnrehouse and run twelve pair of i stones. It will be a huge affair, and from the appearance of its foundation walls, massive and powerful in projiortion to its dimensions. The Messrs. Haxall have recently finished an immense building chiefly for storage; but; in which they will introduce four pair of burrs. | [Richmond Dixpatch, 23J. MUNICIPAL NOM1N A I IONS.
