THREE DAYS LATER FROM EU.
ROPE! Tho British mail steamship Asia, with Liv erpool dates to tho 8th inst., arrived ut New York on tho 20lli. There has been no buttle in the Baltic. Tho allied fleets have entered the Black Sen. Tho Turks havo gained a victory over tho Russians in Bessarabia. Austria still undecided. The Russians wcro dismantling the for tresses on the Island of Ahlatid. Napier's fleot was still at Kongo Bay; the navigation was opened to St. Petersburg. The Allied Fleet has sailed for Varna to effect a movement in conjunction with Omar Pasha, as soon as hostilities had commenced in the Baltic. The course Austria would pursue after the commencement of hostilities was not known. The 36th April is appointed as a national fast day throughout Great Britain. A riot had occurred in Barcclouia on the ISth. The military were called; several citi xens were killed. A man named Bocchi was arrested ns the assassin of tho Duke of Parma. A despatch from Berlin says, that negotia tions are being made with Austria, and that Prussia had joined in the protectorate signed At Vienna on the 3d of April, betw een (J rent Britain, France and Austria. It Is now rumored that Austria will umko tho Russian passage of the Balkan a cause for war. Tho English and French Governments en tirely reject the proposals made by tho Czar in his letter to the King of Prussia. In tho House of Commons, on Friday, Lord John Russell confirmed the statement. Two stenni frigates that wcro being built for tho Russian Government had been seized in England. Austria was concentrating troops on tho Servia. The Turks have also crossed the Danube between Nicholas and Roustchouk in Doub rudga, but they wero considered in n critical position, and rcinforcemcuts were being call ed for. The Lake in the Gkeat Deskiit. Mr. William P. Bluke, who recently accompanied the party of Lieut. J. G. l'arku across the desert lying between the San Bernardino mountain and the Colorado river,wns enabled, in the capacity of geologist, to make it is said tho only scientific survey ever attempt ed of that region. He says that the fact of the ancient existence of an immense inland lake in that section of the country, is estab lished by unmistakable Rigns of the shells and sand beaches, extending for many miles along the Valley which was traversed by the party. Mr. Blake states that the eastern bor ders of this vast lake reached some distance to the eastward of tho Colorado river. Du ring his journey ho saw great quantities of old sea drift silicilied wood and marine fos sils, nil highly polished by the action of tho drifting sand. A Tall Speculation. Wo are informed, says the Cincinnati Columbian, that a certain house in (his city has in serious contempla tion a speculation, which in vastness of con ception is fur ahead of any thing that has preceded it even in this age of gigantic ideas. The plan is nu investments bulk pork of 01 e million thousand pounds, which tit tho pros ent value of the article would amount to 857, 500,000, three times the vuluo of nil the pork packed iu the regular way, in tho Wcs tern States for export South Carolina. Tho Hon. David VVal- lace, of South Carolina, has published nn elaborate letter in favor of taking the election of Presidential electors iu that State from tho Legislature and giving it to tho people. Wo have no Idas that his plan will bo adopted. The samo tiling was proposed a few years ago and rejected unceremoniously. Downfall' of the "Pillar of Peace." Upon one of the highest cliffs which form tho dividing lino between Lancashire and Yorkshire, and which constitutes at that point the "back bono of England," there was erect ed in the year 1814-15, a tall and massivo column of rock, commemorntivo of tho joy which tho inhabitants of tlioso wild districts felt at the abdication of Napoleon a sugges tive memorial of tho blessings which pcaco had at last brought to tho two countries which it separated. A large number of per sons subscribed to tho cost of its erection; and it was called the "Pillar of Peace." A few weeks since, however, we learn from the London Time's,. the people of Landfleld wcro alarmed by a loud noise, as if a peal of thun der from the heavens, and, upon looking to wards the summit, they found that their old land-mark lay 'ill rains about its baso. An ominous accident! p""I ask again, what is happiness T It ain,t being Idle, that's a fact do idle man or woman was happy sinco the world began. Eve was idle, and that's the way she got tempted, poor critter, employment gives both appetite and digestion. Duty makes pleas ure doubly sweet by contrast. When tho harness is off, if the work ain't too hard, a critter likes to kick up his heels. When pleas ure is the business of life, it ceases to be pleasure ! and when it's all labor and no piny, work, like an unstuffed saddle, cuts into the very bone. Neither labor or idleness has a road that leads to happiness one has no room for tho heart, and the other corrupts it Hard work is the best of tho two; for that has, at all events sound sleep tho other has restless pillows, and unrcfreshing sleep; one is a misfortune and the other a curse, and money ain't happiness, that's clear as mud. Sam Slick. At the late festival in New York, in commemoration of tho birth of Henry Clay, the following note was received from General Scott: "General Scott has had the honor to re ceive a card for the meeting of the "Clay Festival Association," and if he could depart from the self-imposed rulo not to attend any entertainment, so interesting an anniversary which he placer next to the 22d of Feb ruary would be an exception. New York, Clay's birthday, 1854." Work work work! It is the iron plow share that goes over the field of tho heart, rooting up all the pretty grasses and beau tiful, hurtful weeds that we have taken such pleasure in growing, laying them all under, fair and foul tognther making plain, dull looking, arable land for our neighbors to peer at, until at night time, down iu the deep furrow the angels come and sow. The curious woman would like to turn the rainbow, to ace what there was on (he ether side. Conventions North and South. The New York Herald has nn article upon Con ventions North and South, n portion of which we annex : Northern conventions nro seldom attended by men of practical worth and eminence. Their supporters are fanatics of every shade, reformed drunkards, and iinrefiiriiied social ists, broken down politicians, and hair brain ed talkers. Iu the South on tho contrary leading men commonly think it worth their while to be present at 'these periodical assem blages; and to undergo as much annoyanee ns the frivolity of their associates may inflict for tho chance of conferring some practical benefit on their country. This chance, in point of fact, is slender enough; it very rare ly happens that any real good results from conventions North or South. .Much tune is consumed in talking; mid most scrupulous attention is paid to punctilio and the rules of debate. Kesolutions, Ingliiy patriotic in mo South and highly philosophical in thu North, aro debated at length and occasionally earned; but as som as tho liat ot the convention goes forth, the members seem to think that their task is complete. In this respect, we see but little dillerenco between Northern and South ern conventions. After tho work is (lone, however if that can bo called work winch is seldom anything more than talk the char neteristie peculiarities of the two sections of the country generally developo themselves afresh. Northern conventions close cither with a fight or with prayer. Southern con ventions invariably with' a dinner and a ball. In this respect, we think our brethren of the South have the advantage. Large Sale of Corn. The LonUvillo Journal of the 18th slates thai on tho previ ous day ono of the largest sales of corn ever mado in this market transpired on change. A lot of 100,000 bushels sold, deliverable on tho Wabash, at 3dcents,sacks returned. The whole amount of this purchase is $32,000 exclusive of freight. Mat. F. Ward. The case of this unfor tunate man, arraigned for murder, came up at the Elizabethton court on the ISth. The Judge announced that no report of tho testi mony shall be made for the press and noth ing published beyond an outline of the gen eral course of the trial. JSfAn exchange paper says "a married woman ought never to.peruse her husband's private correspondence; and adduces us a rea son why she should not, that a Mrs. Mille burn, of Ritchie co. Va., iu reading her hus band's private letters coma across one from which sho gathered tho disagreeable fact, that her husband had courted and was en gaged tube married to another lady previous to his marriage with her, and inconsequence, she took livr traps and retired to her parental abode. Go it. JJIt is said there is a girl out in Shelby county, Illinois, so killiugly pretty that she has to wear around her waist, a spike belt, similar to those the farmers put on colts' heads, to break them from sucking. This is the only means of keeping the young 'bucks' from hugging her to death and even with the shield, it is said there is not n young gent in the neighborhood that does not bear spike prints on his arms. Black Rain. It has been stated that thu rain which fell in this place on Tuesday lust was black some say black lis ink. We havo heard a vcriety of opinions in regard to this singular phenomenon, one of which is that there was about that time an earthquake in the moon, and that the falling cinders discol ored the rain. Others speak of Nebula coal mines, and go so far as to say that lumps fell on that day ns largo us hen eggs. At noon-day it was so dark that caudles had to bo lit to work by. Paducah Journal. Chancellor. Maj. John W. Harris has been appointed by Gov. Johnson Chancellor for the Sommervilo District, rice Hon. Cal vin Jones, resigned. .Maj. Ilaiis is a eandi datu for that ollico before the people. The bill for the abolition of sal very in the Republic of Venezuela has passed tho Con gress of thatountry, at the suggestion ol tho President, Monagas. By this measure some sixteen thousand slaves are set free. Or The most promising feat tiro of the foreign news by the Asia, is thu increasing probability of tho accession of Prussia, as well ns Austria, to n cordial union of actiuu with Franco and England against Russia. "Now let us sing ono of thoso Do-its," said Mrs. Partington to u musical Irielid. "Vou can sing base, Isa.ic will do tho terrible, and I will breatho the air," and she fell to wiping her specs with the corner of her apron. Prim looked sober mid hit his lips, while Ike commenced tho "terrible," by pulling the kit ten's extremity. Judgo Pierpont has decided in Ver mont that tho Liquor Act is unconstitutional as far as it direct that liquor should bo de stroyed without direct proof that it was kept for sale. This is the .Massachusetts decision. A Nut fii Sixtv Century For.Ks.-Prof. Agassiz, in a recent lecture before tho Lowell Institute, in Boston, stated his belief that the human race existed on tho globe a hundred and fifty thousand years ago. t5 A Western paper, spoaking of a co temporary, says: "The Gazette comes out with a new head.

Tho Cincinnati Colum bian says that Miss Eiiza Pretty was married toMr. John Good on Friday lust. Professor Agassiz lias undertaken to prq,vo that the negro docs not belong to the human family. J-tf Wo all live on one another. To keep the birds, nature made worms. To feed hypocrites, she invented ignoramuses. Htf" Modern law may be divided into three parts supposition, proof and denial. Supposition is nothing; proof is impossi ble, and to deny everything is the main point He Creatures. The Philadelphia Sun day Dispatch has the following: "The dear he creatures who wear shawls about our streets intend to adopt a further improvement in masculine costume, and have decided upon assuming that d Ltcarded feminine article, the buttle. What nextf" I have not loved lightly," as the man said when he married a widow weighing 300 pounds. A Mr. Wilson, who resides in Indi nnapolis, and is n conductor of tho railroad between that city mid Cincinnati, buys his meat at tho Cincinnati market at C o'clock in tho morning, and at half past 12 has it on his dinner table in Indianapolis, one hundred and ten miles from where it hung for sale in the morning. Seedy people may bo glad to learn that the original color of black garments can he restored by saturating the rusty parts with an infusion of logwood; "dry mid press oil" with a hot iron."
