Further Particulars.
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.
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

rather bon paunch, and is quite an Aboil o

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

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

of his usual health, though he had sufferd
for some time with an insidious malaof,
which left him ill able, with his fragile con

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

resided first in Kentucky, and thefe
removed to Arkansas. Here he was raild
to the dignity of a Justic of the Supnie

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-

Singular Disease of the Eyes. A
singular case occurred last week at the
Glasgow Eye Infirmary. 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.

his resources are pretty well exhausted,

that he cannot return by the same cheap
