(CP A writer in the Washington Repub lic says, thut mi improved plan of'n rail road Is ill progress, und will soon be announced, which will securo the passenger from injury and Accomplish the most ardent wish for spued without dnngcr of running off the rail, or coming in collision with nn opposing train; a plan of rail road that will enable the pas senger or the mail to reach the Pacific Ocean In as many minutes as there lire miles to overcome. JSjTTour parties are now in tho field sur veying routes for tho great railroad to the Pacific. "The Pacific Railroad," say the prophets, "is to be the topic of the next ses sion of Congress." Schiedam Schnai'm. The N. V. Mirror says, there is quite un exciting controversy going on between Tcmpcranco lecturers and Medical doctors on the virtues and ices of "Wolfe's Schcidnni Aromatic Schnapps." It is a question on which not only "doctors dif fer," but moralists also some of the strong est "temperance men" being loudest in their praise of the Schnapps. That this is a medi cine "not bad to tuko," there is abundant evi dence in the fact that they aro going dmrn at the rate of a million of bottles a year ! It certainly is high time thnt the question should be decided whether these Schnapps anj "good for the stomach" or not. Is it So? Some payers infer that the Se cretary of Stale has so little confidence in the integrity of the persons whom he has appointed to diplomatic positions abroad, that ho fult himself under tho necessity of inserting a special clause in Ids circular of instructions, enjoining them not to exceed in their drafts, the amount of what is due them from the government or in other words, he warns them against attempting to swindle the U. S. Treasury. The Rail-Way Car. There is something in the very looks of a rail-way car calculated to excite peculiar admiration. Whether we regard one as a great triumph of gonius, or as a mere means of getting along on our jour lioy, it is au affair thnt we watch with a throb of exultation. The woods are still no sound is heard but the waving of the forest, or the blurr of some wood-peck that rattles his bill against the echoing bark of the tall pine. Presently the whole woods resound with deafening noises; fur down the valley rise a dense black smoke; and round the edge of yonder hill comes a train of cars, moving in all the dignity and power of supernatural being. A train of rail-way cars, rushing with wild baste through the vale and along the brink of mountains, in country of hills and dales, is a scene of singular magnificence and beauty. It is the union of art and nature; the bringing together the triumphs of man's mind, and the stupendous creations of nature, not like tho war of the giants against Heaven, in the vain mastery for power, but in the enter prise of good. To be seen fur the first time, a rail-way car, is indeed a matter for woudcr and astonishment. A few days since, we saw an humble country-mnn behold one for the first time in his life. Astounded by the noiso of the approaching locomotive, which unex pectedly turned the brow of a hill he looked like a bird within the searching glance of the rattle-snake. He tried, in vain, to fly; in the effort he fell upon the track; with convulsive . struggles he made out to rise and catch a tree , round which he clung, with the grasp of a dying man. By that time the cars, with their crowds of passengers, yelling in laughter, were out of sight. It was fun lo them, but death to him. He trembled like an aspen leaf, long after the whistle of the engine was dying in the distant valleys. Heroism. One of our rural exchanges is heroic to the following degree: "Some zeal ous headed old gentlemen are spending alto gether too much noise upon the sphere of woman. If woman wishes to enter the field and do battle in the ranks, let her do so. Give her all her rights and then let her do as she has s mind to. If she gets ahead of us in the fight we are the last man lo blub ber!" . J3f It is currently reported and believed to be quito authentic, that the mother of the celebrated French patriot, Lamartine, was a Massachusetts girl, named Waitstill Brighatn. She married the father of the eminent states man, Lamartine, when quite young, in Bos ton'and then went to France, where she re mained during her life.

The following article is copied from the London Morning Chronicle of the 33d ult: The violent alternation of hope and fear which have, day by day, deluded and dismay ed the purveyor of foreign intelligence in London, Paris, Vienna and even Constantino ple, are by no means favorablo to a calm con sideration of the actual stote of affairs. AH the absurd tales about notes and counter notes prepared by Austria all the Russian lies about Turkey yielding all the delusions attempted in every form and shape by the un scrupulous Russian agents may deceive for a moment those who wish to be deceived on the Stock Exchange, but can have no perma nent effect upon the minds of men who know anything of the real grounds of quarrel be tween thu Czar and tho Porte. Thu actual statu of facts is this: England and France, no doubt with tho concurrence of Prussia and Austria, and ofcouruo witli the approba tion of tliu Sultan, lmvu written to the Czar with an ultimatum of the most expostulutory character, showing thu terrible results if war should arise, and urging the Czar to recede from his inndinissablu demands. Whatever journalist may say about the matter, tiic fact is clear that the Cabinets of France and England, beyond all cavil, regard the occupation of the Principalities as a foul invasion, a casus belli, but knowing the fright ful responsibility of doing anything rashly, they have hesitated to the last before the ir revocable step of resisting by arms; and in deed they place themselves, by this delay, in the false position of appearing to desert the Sultan in his extremity, rather than net pre cipitately, and not give thu Czar his last chance of preserving peace. Whether whilst England and Fiance are, wisely or not, tem porising in hopes of settling the quarrel, the j Turks will not cross the Danube in large for- j ces and enter Wallachia, ns they have an un- ! doubted right to do by treaty, is another and j very doubtful question. Tho news of the occupation of the Principalities by the Kus- j siaus has created a frightful excitement at j Constantinople, and the population, eager to givo buttle, can scarcely bo restrained. i The Russians have so completely occupied t ho Principalities, and taken upon themselves the executive and administrative authority, as j to leave little doubt thnt they meditate a per- . maneut occupation. Indeed, they have plain- ; ly an eye toward tho south, and with the j troops of both the C.arand thu .Sultan, now I exasperated against each other by religious ' animosity, thu preservation of the pence is rendered very precarious. Wu purposely re frain from all speculation of the C.ar. The wisest men in the world must be whol ly at fault, even to conjecturo what his de cision will be. One tumg is certain, mni neither France nor England can afford to stand shillyshallying any longer. Delay must be fatal to the Turks, whilst on the other hand, a sudden irruption of the Asiatic hordes on tho Russian frontiers, co-operating with Oiner Pasha, and tho combined fleets of Eng land and France, might effectually check thu march of tho Russians. Thb Course of the Administration. The New York Commercial dilates on what it calls tho "inexplicable course of Pres ident Pierce's administration." The editor thinks and a good many people think with him "It is about timo thnt the country knew something of the general principles, domes tic and foreign, which are to guide that Ad ministration during President Pierce's incum bency of office; and yet in very truth, scarce ly two of the Democratic papers seem to a gree in their estimate of what will be the Administrative policy. The general embar rassment on this subject is not a little increas ed by the contradictory course of the Wash ington Union, which claims, with what jus tice we are not prepared to say, to apeak the sentiments of the. President and Ins Cabinet. One day that journal lauds Russia, and the next utters coiurnrv scniimoms; now n aw scrU that the President will neither place nor retain in offtco a free soiler, and then endor ses without qualification, tile appointment of n gentleman notoriously n free sullen it in proved one day Uovernor Lane's proclama tion, avowing his intention to seize upon the Mcssilla Valley, and again condemned it as Unwarranted: now it reads a Barnburner jour nal out of tho party, and anon a Hunker un til its renders are lost in its uiazo of contra dictions." t3?"Tho amount of money in activo cir culation in the United States, is estimated in the Merchant's Magazine at 259,477,257, which reckoning the population nt 25,000,000, would make $13 per head. It was $11 in 1816, when there was an enormous paper currency afloat, and but 85,50 in 1830. One third of the present currency is gold. Marrying for Monet. There.aro hun dreds of idle young men who expect to keep themselves out of tho work-house by marry ing a fourtunel They don't caro for beauty or mind, but they idolize money. Beauty, mind and money make a rare combination; yet what aro they worth when associated with a small spirit' Very, very seldom is it that women have a combination of all. A proposition for you reader. Men, who are men, will not marry for money, and hence, there being many such, there are many poor, but pretty and intelligent ladies, who got husbands, and good husbands. Only think of a man planting himself down, and loaf ing on his wife's money. What a thing. f-Rum is like duatli it levels all dis tinctions.

We notice in the New York Herald of the 5th letter from a committee appointed by the Howard Association, a charitable society in New Orleans, appointed for tho purpose of soliciting subscriptions in behalf of their in stitution. The letter says, the fever has be come epidemic, and is more malignant in type than ever before known, the deaths being ful ly seventy per cent, of all that are attacked. The members of this association are most active in their personal exertions to relieve suffering and the dying, but their means are becoming exhausted. The sum appropriated by the City Council is already gone, mid they now rely upon tho charitable to aid them in their noble work. Accompanying the above, is a letter receiv ed by the Rev. Dr. Hawks, which gives a viv id picture of the sickness, distress and suf fering in that community which we subjoin. Extract of a letter to Dr. Hawks, from one of the Episcopal clergy in New Orleans, dated July 27, 1853: "Ere this, no doubt you havo received no tiee of a resolution passed by the Howard Association, requesting your help. I feel confident that you will do all you can, and therefore shall not urgu you, but will give you the true statu mid condition of all'airs. Others may endeavor to make people abroad believe there is no danger, while there is real ly at tliis moment racing one of the most tearful epidemics that was ever known. The fever is of a frightful type, nearly every case black vomit in oiifht or ten hours alter the attack, mid the mortality is unprecedented. Dr. L., who, you know, is one of tho most einninent of our physicians, told inu this day that I hero wcru more deaths than he ever knew at any other period, and the suffering1 exceeds anything 1 Imvo ever witnessed. I have this day visited forty-four persons sick with thu fever, and by to-morrow do not ex- j pect to find ten of them alive. I am going from house to house, from one scene of the i most appalling wretchedness only to see ano ther, worse, if that be possible, than the last. Deatli is all around uie, in his most frightful form vet my duty is a plain one, not only to preach the gospel,, but to help bodily thu ! poor stillcror who has no friend. My dear friend, lor Cod's sake help us. Get what you can, and remit it to me for tho Howard Asso ciation, (you know all about it, for you lire a member.) and the poor will bless you. This morning 1 went to n lonely little hut, mid there found thu father dead, the mother hug ging her babe, only four days old, to her breast, striving to iiurso it, while the black vomit was actually streaming from her mouth. Such are the objects for which I plead. The mother is since dead, the babe is alive. 1 took it and got a black woman to be ils mother; not one cent had these people. My friend, 1 could give you a great many similar cases of sull'ering, but I forbear; you will, I know, help us to help thesu poor dying creatures." Imi'outast Disclosures l'rnml in the. Issue nf I. ami Warrants, if-c.-Wu learn from Washington, mid incidentally in this city, (says the N. Y. Express of Saturday,) that important information has recently been laid before tho President, touching a long con tinued series of frauds in connection with the issue of land warrants and bounties. The President has handed thu subject over to the Secretary of tho Interior, who is here, it is also said, partly in reference to the iuvestigiu lion of these frauds. The timo over which these transactions have extended, exceeds eighteen months. The parties to the fraud ore, as we learn them, a distinguished head of a bureau at Washington, a clerk of his, both in Govern ment employ,) and a broker of not very ex tensive reputation in this city. The parties at Washington are represented as having made some 68,000 out of the transaction, and others here have made as much more. We are not at liberty to give the names of the parties accused this morning, though they hare been mentioned to us. Death in Childhood. How true and ex quisitely beautiful is the following impressive passage which is taken from an article In the Dublin University Magazine: "To me, few things appear so beautiful as a very young child in its shroud. Thu little innocent face looks so sublimely simple and confiding, amongst the cold terrors of death. Crimeless and fuarless, that littlu mortal has passed alone under tho shadow, and explored the mystery of dissolution. There is death in its subliuient and purest image, no hatred, no hypocrisy, no suspicion, no care for tho mor row over darkened that littlu face; death has come lovingly upon it; there is nothing cruel or harsh in its victory. Tho yearnings of love, indeed, cannot be satisfied; for the prat tle, and smile, all the little world of thoughts thnt wcro so delightful, aro gono forever. Awo too, will overcast us in its presence, fur we aro looking on death, but we do not fear for tho lonely voyager, for the child has gone, simple and trusting, into the presence of its Allwise Father; and of such, we know, is the kingdom of heaven." The Boston Post in an article in favor of cheap postage, says : "There is no more reason in requiring the Postoflice Department to pay its own expcnscs.than there would 1 in requiring our Mediterranean fleet to pay its expenses by bringing home raisins from Malaga, and figs from Smyrna." We think so too cheap postage is as much a national afluir as the defence of the country. Not very Bad. The editor of tho Erie Observer, a newly married man, said this the other day of his town colemporary : "The bachelor editor of tho Gazette wants everybody to pet up in the morning at four o'clock to hear the bilds sing. - For our part, we have better rominy than birds nt that hour in the morning; hence, we shan't take his advice.

The Herald of this morning has important intelligence from Cuba. It is stated that a demand or request had been made by the Britisli rio'vefnment for the appointment of u mixed commission, which commissioners are to be authorized to search the estates und all places in Cuba where new importations from Africa aro supposed to be sheltered, and that the Spanish Government had given its assent to the proposition of England It is stated that the Captain General, previ ous to receiving orders front his Government, authorizing the proposed mixed commission, hud searched several estates from which he had taken a great number of negroes. The present agreement between England and Spain, as proposed by the former, is as follows : .-- 1st. England consents to tho importation into Cuba of apprentices from Africa, who shall serve ten years apprenticeship, at the ex piration of which timet hey shall bo free. 2d. A new cunsiiscnuiiicrufing every slave now in Cuba, is to" be taken by the mixed commission, who ire authorized to search every estate in the island, so that in future they can ascertain whether new slaves have been introduced. . 3d. In fifty years from the acceptance of these propositions, und tlie-fatilieatioii of thu treaty based thereon, -trie present slaves in Cuba, and their children, tire to be set free.

If this Russian pre tension thut tho waters of tho .i'gean aro not free, bo allowed, she will not only have bullied France and England, but gained a point more important to her future designs than the occupation of the provinces. "ct5The Noiv York Tribune says, on tho question or Peace and War that "essentially there aro but two Great Powers in Europe Democracy and Russia and the policy of the various Courts is controled by their overmas tering fears of one or thu other. When De mocracy becomes rampant and aggressive, they take shelter under tho irgis of Russia; that danger apparently blown over, and the Autocrat attempting lb reap his harvest while the weather is propitious, they recoil from his embraces and coquet a while with Democracy. And whenever the Continent shall again bo shaken by the clearly impending convulsion, whatever may be the immediate issue, the ultimate harvest must be garnered by one or the other of the substantial belligerents." The Tattler. Solomon says, 'where there is no tale bearer the strife ceascth.' Of all beings that lives, troves, eats, drinks and sleeps, we think a tattler is tho most odious and coiitemptablc. The thief may steal the blasphemer may swear the dram drinker may get drunk the incendiary may ply the torch but the act is confined to a single lo cality. But the tongue of the tattler sets on fire the whole course of nature the world, and that not with the material torch, but with the fire of hell, that withers snd blasts all the happiness of men it secTks to close tip every ovenuo by which peace might ap proach a community. It destroys tho peace of both Church and State. Every good man should shun a tattler as they would a travel ling and incurablo pestilence.

Twiggs, dated at Pascagonla, yesterday morning at 1 o'clock, wo have received the melancholy intelligence of the death of Col. W. W. Bliss, of the U States Army, which had just occurred at that place. This gallant officer was one of the most distinguished in our service, as well for his intellectual as his military qualities. During the Mexican war, he was the Adjutant Gen- erul to Gen. Taylor, serving in all the buttles on the northern lino of operations, and by his indomitable enetgy, his deliberato courage, and mostof all, by the memorable despatches, identifying himself with tho fame of his illus. trio us commander. Since thu pence ho lias bced recognized, both in and out of the army, as one of tho most valuable and ablo officers in the service. Soon after the close of the war, he married Miss Betty Taylor, the daughter of tflo . illustrious General; thus crowning his military career with the most signal evidence of the confidence and affection of his commander, who also constituted him his private secretary when elected to the Presidency, which he filled for so' brief a period. Col. Bliss, nt tho time of his death, was at tached to the staff of Major General Twiggs, and was with his head-quarters at East i'asca goula, when attacked with the billions fever, of which he died. .We noticed his illness yesterday, and the departure of Dr. Nott to render him medical aid, which proved una vailing. The letter of Gen. Twiggs, an nouncing thu event, was sent by a despatch j to Capt. Grant of the mail-boat, to procure a collin for thu deceased, which, wu presume, j was sent down yesterday. I The news of the death of this distinguished I ollieer, who was, wo believe, about 15 years of age, will be received with profound regret in ail parts of our country. The nation will preserve and honor his memory. "How sleep the brave, who sink to rest, By all their country's wishes blest!
