On Satuidajv. evening last our citizens were I startled by the announcement that the Stetmer Chatham, on her downward trip, about thirty miles below this place, had met with a serious accident by the explosion of her boiler. We understand the explosion was caused by allowing the water to get too low in the boiler and then pumping in cold water while it was in a heated state. The boiler was bnrsted all to pieces, throwing the smoke-stack a considerable distance on land and shattering the boat so badly that it sunk in - . f i a T " f l. six or eigni leei waier. vapi. r.vans was khui ik ed into the River and narrowly escaped drown ing, the Boat floating over hirn. It was reported that his arm was broken, but we learn that his injuries are not as serious as at first supposed. A free man of color, named Dick, from New bern, who acted as fireman, was killed. - - A negro man by the name of Fred, belonging te Mrs Martin of Moore county, we understand was seriously injured. The Chatham, never having complied with the steamboat law, did not carry passengers. Her freight consisted of Spirits Turpentine, Sheet ; . i it : : ri.. t. vf.'ii r n....i log, auu r inning ricr ihhii inr- iiiti ui u.ivin jvjurpny, esq. vve suppose it win nearly ail ue saved in a damaged state.

A. M. Campbell's dwelling to' be on fire. Jt was extinguished before any damage was done ' STORE ROBHED On Sunday last, during the day, the Store of Messrs Marsh &. Troy was entered at the back window, and about forty one dollars in specie stolen from the drawer. On Monday some of the money was found in the possession of a negro boy, who was arrested and lodged in jail. . OCJ-In another column will be found a Circular addressed to the Common School Committee men of North Carolina, by C.H.Wiley, Esq, the General Superintendent. Mr Wiley makes some very important and wise suggestions, and we anticipate brilliant results from his labors. He appears to be well suited for the work he has in charge, and should receive the hearty co operation of every friend of education. If the youth of the country can only be aroused to the imoortance of obtain in' cood educations, we en tertain no fear for the destiny of our glorious Re public. A good education should be preferred above great riches. If you are poor, and have children, instead of spending your money in buying unnecessary finery for them while small, save it to pay for their tuition when they arrive t the proper age. Cast your bread upon the waters that it may be seen in after days. We have but one little boy, and although we may not be enabled to leave him wealth, yet we do intend to give him a good education, if life is spared. , We hope the Circular will be read by all.

' " " - - CORRECTION. The fare from Wilmington to New York, by through ticket, is $15 50, in stead of $15, as stated last week. STEAM BOILERS- A writer in a western paper, who has made several experiments with steam boilers, says that there is but one thing that causes a boiler to explode, and that is by letting the water get down so low in the boiler that the tops of the flues get hot, and then com mence pumping water in the boiler, and as soon as the water rises on the hot iron that has been exposed to the heat, the boiler explodes. TWO BROTHERS IN CONGRESS. There -ill be two brothers in the next Congress from different States. K li. oianion ti nentucicy. ' (whcTthe whigs hoped was defeated.) and F. P Stanton of Tennessee, both democrats, are elect- ed. The latter by only two majority. This bows the importance of every democrat going to the polls on the day of election and casting hta vote: ' . Hoik Thomas W, Ligon has been nominated as the democratic candidate for Governor in siuroea. Maryland. , ( " TEXAS ELECTION. -The election in Texas took place on the 1st inst., for Governor and members of Congress and of the State Legislature. Hon. E. M. Pease, democrat, is elected Governor, over Hon. Wm- j B. Ochiltree, whig. . In the first and second Congressional Districts, Smith and Scurry, democrats, are ; elected, j Thomas W.

Andrew Johnson, dem., has been elected Governor of Tennessee, says the Nashville Union, " by a majority of 3,000 the largest majority any candidate has received for the office in ten years." Tennessee, also, has worked into the democratic fold ! Well, let j them come room enough. -We'll soon have all the States. CAPT. INGRAHAM & THE KOSTA AFFAIR. The conduct o-f Captain Ingraham, at Smyrna, in restraining an Austrian vessel from carrying of Kosta, a Hungurian refugee who had been naturalized, or had taken the preliminary steps for becoming a citizen of the United States, seems to meet the approbation of the Govern mentandofthe country generally; rThe Cap tain, it is said, had all his guns loaded, ready to pour a few broadsides into the Austrian vessels had not Kosta been put ashore. All letters re ceived, both private and official, declare that the universal sentiment among the foreign Con suls was enthusiastic in favor of Capt Ingraham's conduct. He commands the sloop-of-war St Louis, and is said to be a South Carolinian by birth. It has been suggested that he be pro moted for his gallant conduct on the occasion above alluded to. FROM EUROPE. The steamer Africa ar rived at New York on the 11th, from Liverpool. The latest accounts from Russia state that pre parations for war were still vigorously continued. The Turks were still keeping up their military organizations, and making warlike preparations. Another Hungarian refugee was arrested at Smyrna by the captain of an Austrian steamer, but after being carried on the vessel he jumped overboard and was rescued and taken to the U. S. Consul, who protected him and compelled the captain to give up his wife and children. The Kosta affair is assuming a more serious aspect, and threatens to cause some trouble. In China the insurrection was still progress ing and growing in importance and strength. The city of Amoy was captured on the 19th May after a severe battle and the loss of many lives. In Italy another insurrection has broken out, and several arrests were made. Accounts from Rome confirm the belief that some important step is contemplated by the revolutionists. Within a short time 20 or 30 noted ringleaders of the revolt, with arms, gained admission to the city, and are now secreted therein. LATER The steamer Humboldt arrived at New York on the 15th. Whether there will be war between Russia & Turkey is still uncertain. In the Liverpool market, Cotton was steady and unchanged in price.. - --.-v - STILL LATER The steamer America arrived at Halifax on the 16th. The Turkish question is not settled, and the aspect of affairs is more warlike. It is stated that Austria will not only demand repara tion from America for the Smyrna affair, but that Turkey shall immediately procure the ex tradition of Kosta. Petersburgh letters say that when the Czar of Russia heard of the Kosta affair he advised Austria to do anything rather than uive the United States a pretence for interfering in the affairs of Europe. Cotton had declined an eighth of a penny in the Liverpool market. ANOTHER HORRIBLE RAILROAD ACCI DENT. A dreadful catastrophe occurred on the Boston and Worcester railroad on Friday morn ing the 12th. A collision took place between the Boston train for Worcester and an excursion train from the latter place. Both trains were going at full speed, and the crash was terrible. The locomotives were completely driven into each other, and a large number of cars thrown off the track and smashed into fragments. About 20 men, women and children were instantly kil led, and 12 or 15 so badly mangled that no hope is entertained of their recovery. Many others were slightly injured. Only a day or two previous to the above acci dent, a similar one occurred between Amboy and Philadelphia, killing half a dozen and wounding some 15 or 20 persons. No person who leaves home these times to travel on railroads has any sort of security that he will ever return alive. It would be a good plan for every man to have his life insured before starting. TOO MANY. The Texas Indianola Bulletin says: " There is a constant stream of young law yers and doctors pouring into Texas. We say to all such abroad, stay away Texas is literally flooded with men in those professions; not one half of them succeed to any reasonable extent. We want farmers and mechanics men who pro duce something to live upou." FOR THE WORLD'S FAIR. The Wilming ton Herald says that a mercantile house in that town shipped last week for exhibition at the World's Fair in New York, a Pine Tree, as it was taken from the earth, forty feet long, aud with its roots and branches uncut. Accompany ing it, says the Herald, were a barrel of Virgin Turpentine (first fruits) and the implements used in the manufacture of the article. All but the "nigger," one of the implements, who was not sent, on the principle that "there's no place like home," and from the fear of enlisting philo sopher Greely's sympathies to an extent, which in this hot weather, and his peculiar frame of mind, might prove disagreeable, if not danger ous." In New York, on the 15th, there were ninety deaths caused by the heat of the sun. The ther mometer stood at 102 in the shade. John Charles Gardiner has been indicted by the Grand Jury of the District of Columbia, for committing perjury as a witness at the trial of his brother, Dr Geo A Gardner. His bail was set at $4,000. We notice that Governor Reid, of North Ca rolina, was in Washington city on the 15th, pro bably on bis way to New York. YELLOW FEVER IN NEW ORLEANS. Advices from New Orleans to the 11th state that the yellow fever was still on the increase. For three days the deaths amounted to 706. New Orleans, Aug. 14. Tbe deaths for the past 24 hours amounted to 153. The scourge is still on the increase, though the deaths not quite so large for the want of victims. , W The citizens of New York have contribut ed the handsome sum of twenty-three thousand four hundred and thirty one dollars for the re lief of the sufferers by the fever in New Orleans. ' in Washington city, Mr Corcoran, the rich Banker, gave $500, and President Fierce $50, for the same purpose. Baltimore has contributed $6,000 and Phila delphia $9,000. RAILROAD CONVENTION. On the 25th inst., there is to be a grand Railroad Convention, in Asheville, of the Western Counties for the purpose of adopting means to promote the ex tension of the North Carolina Railroad through the counties of Macon, Haywood, Jackson and Cherokee, so as to connect with the Rabun Gap Railroad on the Tennessee River. At a meeting recently held in Cherokee coun ty, the following resolution was adopted: . Resolved.

MR C,OLLIER AND THE DEFALCATION. Mr John A. Collier, brother of James Collier, late Collector of San Francisco, who is accused of being a defaulter to a large amount, is out with a letter explanatory of the alledged defalca tion, and says it is all a mere matter of differ ence betw een the Government and the ex-Collector in casting up his accounts. He says the sureties on two official bonds in suit are George Law, Esq, of New York, and John A.Collier, and thinks that it is unnecessary for the public toget uneasy before these suits are decided,as the parties are capable of making good all damages. We hope Mr Collier will be able to show that he has not acted dishonestly in the matter. The Baltimore Sun says that Mr Zantzinger, a clerk recently remeved from the State De partment, (and who, it was alledged, had failed to account for $10,000 of the Government money) is not a defaulter ; that his accounts have not been settled, illness having prevented him from making them up ; that he will square up every thing satisfactorily. QtJ- Fayetteviile is getting to be a great place indeed it is. Dog-fighting and hog-squealing is the order of the day and at night the per formance is changed to negro singing and dog barking. If an improvement were made in the dog cellar furnished by the tow n, so as to have it small enough to render respiration a little dif ficult, it might save the canine breed the plea sure of annoying the community by their ever lasting noise, and one would think there was some good in having dog laws; but to say that all dogs found running at large, without collars, and their taxes unpaid, shall be destroyed, (and then not do it,) sounds very simple. We sup pose a dog with a tin collar on, with the letter T stamped upon it, is not in danger of getting the hydrophobia oh, no he is a nice genteel dog, while one without a collar (and probably belonging to some poor old man who is unable to pay the tax) is a good-for-notbing dirty dog, and ought to be shot. Oh, the consistency of our law-makers ! But w e have another evidence that our town is increasing in greatness. Last Sunday night, as the good people were returning home from church, by the assistance of the light of the moon, they were regaled with the sight of a drui.ken negro sprawled out on a goods box, on the pavement, and about a dozen others stand ing round laughing and huzzaing over him. He lay there till after 10 o'clock, a fit subject for the guard house, but the patrol, if there is such a thing, did not even deign to pass that way. Ye.-, and some of our people are becoming more energetic and industrious, for we notice two or three shops that are kept open on the Sabbath, dealing out cider. beer, cakes and whis key to the colored gentry. All these things indicate the greatness of the ancient town of Fayetteviile. " ESQ " We were somewhat amused a few mornings since at a conversation between the Clerk at the Post Office and a young man who called for the ' letters and newspapers" of Mr John Squiggings. (We suppress the real name.) " Anything here for John Squiggings, mister Postmaster ?" The Postmaster handed out a letter super scribed "John Squiggings, Esq." " This does not belong to me," said the man. " I don't know anything about the Esq My name ain't got such a quirk as that at the tail, and you can't drive a sixpence out of me for another man's letter." We suggested that Esq. was attached to the name as a compliment, or in the place of Mr. 'Darn the compliment," said he; ' since this man Wiley has gone through the country talking about uncommon schools, the people have got so much edication that I can't understand them. I don't want my name put in Latin." He paid the sixpence and sloped. SUPREME COURT. - The Grcensborough Patriot says the Supreme Court of North Carolina, in session at Morgan ton, gave license to the following gentlemen to practice in the Superior Courts of the State : A M Campbell of Iredell county; A M Scales of Rockingham; E F Clewell of Watauga; W S Hill. Jr, of Guilford; H Gaither of Burke; A J Sted man of Stokes; F Graves of Surry; Z B Vance of Buncombe. The following were granted license to practice in the County Courts: J T Dula of Caldwell, William Ducker and R H Cannon of Buncombe, Lewis E Henry of Raleigb, JLdtTH Alexan der of Mecklenburg. F. & W. Plxk Road. We are ex ceedingly gratified to hear of the increas ing prosperity of this valuable road. The tolls for June 1853 amounted to gl.152, aainst $5S7 received in June 1852 for Julv 1853, Sl,424, against $753 received in July 1852. This shows an increase in the receipts for the two months the dullest months in the year of one hundred per cent, whilst there have been only twenty miles additional underjoll. Observer.

In the good old days, it was supposed that the use ef the feet and the exercise of the limbs was the primary object sought to be at tained by this amusement. This notion is now e x ploded Jlrms carry the day, and eef are compelled to play second fiddle. But seriously, . i the legitimate result of tbe vast increase of wealth, luxury, dissipation and corruption? To answer the question affirmatively would im ply a very unpleasant admission, aud one little creditable to the present generation. Aud yet we know not how to escape from it. It is a truth beyond question to ourrnind, that the manner in which this fashionable amusement is now carried on is extiemely demoralizing, and cal culated to corrupt society to an appalling extent. We fear, however, that we are preaching a ser mon instead of writing a letter. We have con ceived it to be our duty to say thus much. The responsibilities of the press are great, and it is one of its duties to watch for and guard against the insidious approaches of vice, however fasci nating the form which she may assume. The re cent letter of Judge Edmonds, a distinguished judicial officer in New York, on the subject of spiritual manifestations, is calculated to pro duce some sensation. He is represented as a gentleman of great purity of character, and very superior intellectual endowments. His letter it certainly well written. He adds one more to the list of distinguished men in our country w ho have given in their adhesion to the doc trine of spiritual communion w ith the living. There is a medium now in this place. A few evenings ago in company with some other gen tlemen, vve called on this person in order to gratify a curiosity which we have for some time entertained on the subject. We found her a sharp pert-looking Yankee girl apparently about twenty years of age. The second person who attracted our attention was a pensive poetic looking gentleman, running over the alphabet, and spelling out letter by letter a communica tion which he was then receiving from a spirit. The method was very simple. On a card were the letters of t he alphabet. The person receiv ing the communication ran over the different letters with a pencil. Whenever three raps were given, the letter upon which-the' pencil was resting at the time was recorded, and thus the words spelt out. The pensive gentleman asked audibly, " Have la spirit friend present Answer : Three raps, (affirmative). Question : Will that friend give me her name ? Answer: Three raps. Then commeuced tbe spelling op eration above described. The name " Laura" was spelt out. The gentleman declared that it was the name of his dead wife. Question: Will you spell my name ? Answer: Three raps. The alphabet was again resorted to, and the gentle man's name correctly spelt. It may be as well to remark here that the raps were somewhat faint, though quite audible, and that the method of making them was wholly inexplicable to any of us. Presently after the scene we have de scribed, the medium suggested that the spirit might possibly make a written communication through her. Pencil and paper were procured. Presently a nervous twitching of the arm and hand was observed; then followed a rapid and convulsive movement of the hand and fingers. A sprawling and almost illegible note signed "Laura" was the result. The substance of it was that the spirit rejoiced at the meeting, and that the pensive gentleman might himself be come a medium, by retiring to his chamber and remaining alone. The manner in which the writing was done was remarkable. The medium wrote upside down and of course backwards, and with great rapidity. This, we think, quite sufficient to account for the bad writing, without resorting to the supposition of spiritual agency. Next in order, a gentleman of this village pro pounded the usual introductory question, viz : whether the spirit of a certain friend, whose name was written on the inside of a sheet of paper and laid on the table, was present. Ans: Three raps (affirmative) Question : Will you spell your name? Ans: Three raps. The alpha bet was then resorted to, and James M. was spelt otit. ' Question: Will you give the initials of my name ? Ans ; Three raps. G. K. L. was spelt out. The answers in both cases were totally wrong. G. K. L. were not the gentleman's ini tials, and James M. was not the name of his friend written on the paper. The medium was of course at a loss to account for these mistakes. Next in order, one of our companions put the question "Is the spirit of my first wife.now dead, present?" Ans: Three raps. Question: Will you give rne her name. Ans: Three raps, and "Sarah" was spelt out. This was the name of me gentleman's living wife. He had never been married but once. This fact being disclosed, the medium suggested that it was the spirit of some other dead friend wiich had undertaken to give the answers. The medium also insisted that the answer was correct, as the gentleman's first wife's name was correctly given. The ques tion was then put : What is the name of the spirit friend now present? Ans: "Father." Question: Will you give your name? Ans: Three raps, and John W was spelt out. This answer was wrong. The medium suggested that it was his grand-father's name. It would not fit even him. So that matter was dropped. Question: Will you tell me how many brothers and sisters I have lost. Ans: Three. This an swer was wrong, as the gentleman had lost Jive. Another of our companions attempted to get answers from the spirits. The answers were either indefinite or erroneous. We failed al- together In , our questions, as we -could get no answers good, bad, or indifferent. A person who sat opposite us at the table, next asked for the spirit of "Mark Fisk." Mark an swered. The question was asked if he knew - . any of tbe gentlemen around the table. Ans Que rap. (No.) Several other questions were inura or maris, out ne uia not seem to be a rery :... n: mr :: ,tl . - . ... iiiiriigeiu spirit. -1 ue gentleman asueu mm io P""". by beating Yankee Doodle, TbiMbeirg a drummer whea aliTe) Matk ac, complished with considerable success.
