We gave the important facts last week fcf the burning: of the steamer RichlaDd, on the Peedee, on the 14th inst. Since then, the Cheraw Ga zette gives some interesting particulars of hat tragedy, as follows : ' On Sunday morning about 10 o'clock the boilers exploded, instantly killing fif teen persons and severely injuring several others. Among the killed were Mr John McFarlan of this district. Mrs Henry Davis, and neice Martha Davis, of Mari on ; Richard Downing, mate 5 Mr White head and Mr Maxy, Engineers ; Simon, Pilot, belonging to Mr David Gregg, of Society Hill, and six of the crew belonging to the Capt. Brock ; the others unknown. Among the wounded were Capt Brock, badly scalded and leg broken, Mr J. A. David, of this place, Henry Davis and daughter Margaret, of Marion, slightly injured ; Jacob, servant of Mr MacFarlan, leg broken. The cargo, consisting of about 1000 bales of cotton ignited from the explosion, which, with the bodies of Mrs Davis and Niece and the remains of Mr John Tavlor, which were being to removed to George town for burial, were all consumed. This is the most terrible casualty that has ever occurred on our river, which has been navi gated by steam boats since 1819- We learn there were thirty persons on board at the time of the explosion, fifteen ot whom, as above stated, were lost. 1 he two unknown were a man and woman, the servants of Henry Davis, Esq. Mrs Davis was not killed by the explosion, but was drowned after saving, with the assistance of the stewardess, Capt Brock, and. her husband and daughter. One of the Engin eers was last seen floating down the river on a bale of cotton ; holding to the dead ; holding body of Mr McFarlan. All that remains to tell his sad fate is his boots which were found on the bale of cotton. Jacob,,' ser- floated down the river several miles oh a bale of cotton, sustaining the woman ser vant of Henry Davis, Esq. who died, soon alter bema: taken from the water. We can give nothing buf conjecture as to the cause ot this terrible disaster. As the boat was under wav at the time and had been for several hours, the most reasonable conclusion is that it was caused by some defect in the pump which supplies the boilers witn water. In tact, no other reasonable cause can be assigned About 220 bales ot the cotton on board were from this place and were fullv insur ed. The balance was mostly ulanters' shipments and probably very little of it insured. Ihe boat belonged to Castain Brock, was not insured and is a total loss, having burnt to the water's edjre and sunk. The Richland was a regular packet between Cheraw and Charleston. I Hailes, the Giant. Hailes, the treat Norfolk (English J giant, is astonishing the New Yorkers. The Mirror seys j4 He is but twenty-seven years old, is justight leei nign, weignsoniy auu ids., nas avery pleasant John Bull look, converses agreea bly, and has an inclination to bon potit or rather bon paunch, and is quite an Aboil o in personal appearance. He is unmaried, and bating the objection that no ladv uld ever hope to wear the unmentionabjjs of such a husband, he would certainly lean eligible match, although there is no piola bility of his ever being matched. We hare not looked into any giantesque history late ly, but we believe that Mr Hailes is be largest man that ever was seen upon earn. It makes an ordinary mortal feel extremv ly small in his presence" f 1 . Death of Judge Lac v. We are caled upon, with startling suddenness, to reci-d the death of Thomas J. Lacy, a prominot member of the bar of this State. On Wd nesday Judge Lacy was in the enjoymdt of his usual health, though he had sufferd for some time with an insidious malaof, which left him ill able, with his fragile con stitution, to bear up under a violent attak of illness' of any kind. On Wednesdy night he was seized with symptoms f cholera, and yesteiday afternoon. atS o'clock he breathed his last amidst the teJ? and regrets of his numerous friends. Jude Lacy was a native of North Carolina, ad was educated at Chapel Hill. Sute quently, he emigrated to the west, havfg resided first in Kentucky, and thefe removed to Arkansas. Here he was raild to the dignity of a Justic of the Supnie Court of the State, and acquired an not able distinction in his high office. It isvv several years since he removed to this jfy where he has been engaged in an exteipe and lucrative practice at the bar. T The Cholera in the West. Tf subject is almost exhausted.

In the Senate, Mr Dix presented resolutions of the Legislature of New York, instructing their Senators and requesting their Representa tives to use their best efforts to exclude slavery from the territories recently acquired from Mex ico j asserting that the teiritory between the Neuces and the Rio Grande does not belong to Texas, and that slavery should be prohibited therein; that the existence of slave prisons and slave markets at the seat of Government ought to be abolished ; and that a law should be pas sed to protect slaves from unjust imprisonment, and to put an end to the slave trade in the Dis trict of Columbia. A long and interesting debate followed the presentation of these resolutions, which was par ticipated in by Messrs Rusk, Yulee, Dickinson, Foote, Dix, Mason, Jeff. Davis, Butler, Fitzpat rick, Douglas, Niles, Downs and Metcalf. Mr Rusk said that Texas would maintain the boun dary described in her constitution at all hazards. Mr Yulee insisted that the resolutions vere in sulting to fifteen of the States of the Confederacy, and opposed the motion to print them. In this positron be was sustained by Messrs Davis, Downs and Fitzpatrick. Mr Yulee of Florida having declared his in tention to vote against printing the resolutions because they were insulting to 15 of the States, Mr Dix of New York very warmly replied in a speech of some length, in which he brought for ward some old documents to prove that the lan guage used by the New York resolutions was no worse than that used by the inhabitants of the District themselves, years ago. He said that in 1S02 the grand jury of -Alexandria had presented as a grievance, the slave traffic of the District. And that John Randolph, of Roanoke, in 1S1G, in the House of Representatives, introduced a reso lution inquiring if such a traffic existed, and what measures were necessary for its suppression. In 1S2S, said Mr Dix, a memorial signed by 106G persons was presented from citizens of the Dis trict on the subject of slavery, which memorial he read to the Senate. The memorial was hn invective against the slave trade in the District, and a recommendation for gradual emancipation. The resolutions were finally ordered to be printed ayes 15, noes 6. The noes were Borland of Ark., Davis of Miss., Downs of La., Fitzpat rick of Ala., Hannegan of la., aud Yulee of Fla. The Senate then adjourned. In the House, Mr W. Hunt presented the me morial of Mr O'Reiley, the Agent of the Western Telegraph line, praying the impeachment of Judge Monroe, for malfeasance in office, which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. Mr Wilson presented the resolutions of the Legislature of New Hampshire, instructing the Senators and requesting the Representatives from that State to oppose the admission of slav ery in the Territories of the U. States; which were laid on the table and ordered to be printed. The bill for the relief of Dan Drake Henrie, vvnn iviexico, was taken up and passed. The bill allows him two thousand dollars, and two sections of land. The House then took up the general appro priation bill, which occupied the remainder of the sitting. The Scotch Settlement. In Walton county, east of this about eight miles, there is a settlement of about one hundred fami lies, composed of native Scotch and their descendants, emigrants from Scotland and North Carolina, who formed their settle ment some twenty years since,, and now form an industrious, intelligent, and moral population, that as a body will compare fa vourably with the citizens of any part of the State. They are noted for their hospitali ty, and any one who has been a recipient of their bountiful kindness cannot soon for get it. Such a cheerful welcome, as only a Scotchman can give, greets you as yon enter his dwelling, and while you abide at his house you are at home. Their occupation is farming, and though their lot is cast in a part ot the country where the earth does not yield a very boun tiful supply to the husbandman, yet by their industry, frugality, and economy their homes present a degree of comfort not found in scarcely any other situation, where they are dependent (usually) on their own exertions entirely, for support. Comforts surround them, plenty covers their board, virtuous contentment has its place at their i fireside. They area happy people. Pen- sacola Gazette.

A girl of sixteen years of age, having applied on account of loss of sight of her left eye, the cause was ascertained to be the presence of a liv ing worm hydatid (the cysticercus of scien tific naturalists,) in the eye, close before the pupil, which is completely obstructed. The species of animal consists of a round bag about the size of a small pee, from which on one side springs its body, which is a filament, consisting of numerous rings, and capable of being elongated and retract ed at the creature's will. The body ends in the neck and head, and the latter is sup plied with four lateral suckers. All this was plain to the naked eye in this instance, but appeared still more so when the ani mal was viewed through a microscope. As the existence of such a creature in the in terior of the eye not only prevents vision, but ultimately destroys the whole textures of the organ, it was resolved to remove it by operation. This was successfully ef fected. The pationt behaved with perfect steadiness, and found her vision imme diately restored. The hydatid continued to live for more than half an hour after be ing extracted. As only four similar cases are on record, the worm excited much curiosity, and was examined by numerous visiters. Glasgow (Canada) Chronicle. Office Seekers The New Orleans Delta says: We saw a man who came ail the way from Erie county, N. Y., to lay his claims before Gen. Taylor for the office of Postmaster in his county. This enter prising gentleman wore a white hat and homespun clothes, and we are happy to as sure his distant friends that he has seen the President elect, and forestalled all his ri vals for the aforesaid office. To be sure, his resources are pretty well exhausted, and having come down in a flat boat from Pittsburg, he is a little surprised to find that he cannot return by the same cheap conveyance: but we assure his familv he will be well taken care of, and transmitted home in time to enter upon the enjoyments of his comfortable station.
