New Oiileans, August 38. The Sari Antonio Sentinel mentions the arrival of Col.Uiddle from the headquarters of the Revolutionists In northern Mexico. He says that Vidnury is willing to deliver up to the owners all fugitive slaves escaping to . Mexico, and is anxious to coucludu a treaty to that effect. Wasiiikotok, Aug. 36. The Virginia State Council of KnowNoth tnga were in session at Richmond on Mon day. An informal resolution was offered by John M. Bolts, embracing the sentiment that the religious test of the party ought to be abolished and the naturalization laws tot-illy repealed. His object was merely to as certain the sense of the Council upon the question, which was unanimously decided in the affirmative. f3f The evil of divided commands in the Crimean nrmy has become so manifest that the English lending papers are urging the necessity of giving the command of both ar mies to one general. The suggestion, it is supposed, comes from the English govern ment, which is therefore presumed to be ready to net Upon it. 3f"Tho census takers in the city of Now York hnvo completed thuir labors, and show a total populntion or 624,179, which is an increase since 1850 of 108,624 sonls. There is a decrease in ten of the twculy two wards. The nggregnto increase is much less than was expected. tW Mr. Samuel N. Gnnlt, of Spawn Springs, New York, writes to the Now York Hcruld, to inform the public that he is not the man who was found murdered in Prince George's county, Maryland. tW Chuunc.ny C.

It sets the first Monday in October, as the day on which the polls should be opened, and the people are to vote " Cou vention" or " no Convention," on that day. If the majority are In favor of a convention, provided this resolution passes, we may ex pect a petition from Kansas to be admitted as a State ut the next session of Congress. ; t3?Thero is not nn oath in the language of the Sandwich Islands.

She cun take any two or theSagNicht editors in Pennsylvania and knock their heads together. . Prohibition is China. The "Eastern Prince" of the Chinese insurgents has Issued a proclamation forbidding nil princes and no. bles, ministers of State and people, men and women, to indulge in the use of wine, even privately, under penalty of being beheaded. This is certainly a ncvel mode of enforcing a prohibitory liquor law, uud one decidedly ef fectual, so fur ns the individual offenders are concerned. Chief Engineer or the Russian Naw. lunc C. Thompson, of Albany, N. Y., has received the appointment of chief engineer of the Russian Navy, and is now in Washington tusking the necessary arrangements with tho Russian minister. The offer ia made for threo years at salary of $8,000 per annum, with house rent free. LATER FROM EUROl'E. Halifax, N. S., August 38.

The Bullion in the Bank of England hud increased 43,000 sterling. American Securities were uetive nt previous rules, with the exception of Rail Road Bonds, which were dull. General Intelligence. The war news is important. Syeuborg had been destroyed by the Allies on the 1 1th hist. The destruction of proper, ty was immense. Tho loss of tho Allies was trilling. Cell. Liprnndi had attacked the lines of tho Allied forces on the Tchcrnuyu, but was re pulsed with immense loss. The bombardment ol Sebastopol was to huve lecommeuced on the 17 ill in at. Queen Victoria was in Puris on her visit to Louis Napoleon. The Very Latest. Denmark is reported to huve referred to France respecting the pay ment of the Sound Dues. During the bombardment, Syeuborg took fire, and the conflagration lusted 45 hours. The muguzincs, stores und projectiles blew up. About GO of the allies were wounded, but none killed. Syeuborg, however, hud not surrendered. Sixty thousand Russians attacked the lines of tho Allies on the Chcrmryu, on tho Kifli in it., und fought live hours, but lost 6000 killed and 40t prisoners. They were in full retreat when the French reserve came up. Omar Pacha had been ordered to return to the Crimea. A dispatch from St. Petersburg says that Prince GortschukofT had been ordered to burn the Meet in the event of the fall of Sebastopol. Kurs hud been completely Invested uud communication with Kizerouui stopped. Fresh reiulbreeuieiils wero going out to the Crimea ior the Allies. The London Morning Post says that unex- peeled events may be looked for. It is sup. posed to rel'er to a secret expedition. Six ships of war escorted Quecu Victoria to Boulogne. Effects of Kaimioads on Lands. Tho effect of ruilrouds upon the vulue of farmin lands is a question much couvassed ' in the. Wostern Stutes. ' Tho St. Louis Democrat says: Tho official tax statistics of Michip.m show that, through those counties where railroads have been built, the taxable property has, within tltree years, increased 400 per cent., while in those counties where no railroads havo been built, the ratio of increase in value, n not been over one hundred. In drafting their schedules for the prices of lands, wu find, too, that tho Directors of tho Illinois Central Kuilrond have come far short in esti mating tho value of their lands, for the road has caused the demand'to be so great for them, that they are now bringing a large price above the minimum at which they Wero r.it- i'u. iii some instances, tunas mui were ruled at $12 per acre, nro selling for 820, and others rated at 2". nro Belling for 825. Railroads, especially thcro they course through rich sections of country, not onlv augment the iriees of lands, but they do more, they promoto social Intercourse, build up cities, augment the population of villages, and the lurmer having a cheap outlet to mar ket for his products, plants fourfold w hat he alii before the railroad was established, and his increased activity and industry is reward ed by lirge surplus gains, where before la had none. Personal IxDF.rtNPENCE. By : personal independence, wu mean that self-reliant spirit which leads one to reg.lnto his conduct by the dictates of his own judgment that sterl ing quality which distinguishes the man from the mere automaton. Founded on conscious integrity, and a strong, determined will, it may bo regarded one of tho Biircst evidence of true manliness. Let a man be clothed iu the garb of his own individuality- let him net always in accordance with nn educated sense of duty let hiifl hold uud fuel himself diroctly responsible for his nets and he must deserve, as well ns win, the ad. miration and respect of his follows. Man, it is true, is a social being, und can find hap. pines only by communion with his kind; but mentally, each should bo for himself ouch should think for himself so that the modified results of action mid reaction may bo realized. There is, indeed, in personal independence, a dignity uud loftiness which make It an adoring characteristic of manhood .and youth, Wu cannot concclvo of a grand. er spectacle than that afforded by him who, amid danger and temptation and scorn, calm ly pursues the path uf duty, rough though it be, uud hedged in by numerous perils. l-if" It is very unwise to ask a lady her oge. Mr. It, one of tho New York Ceil, sua Marshals, In taking his account, met with a female who gave her ago as S i years, and hi enumerating her children, announced the eldesr as being U5 yours old. Being u very modest jrouug man, be supposed she made a mistake, uud lengthened her lifo (nu merically) by adding tea year to her axis-tenca. THE AMERICAN SENTIMENT. From the N. . Mirror. Beneath the foam and twrsensc which have quite obscured to the superficial gnzo the vital truth that lies at the heart of the American movement, tho student of the past easily detects that independent sentiment of nalitmality which animated our fathers, in their resistance to foreign despotic rule, and iu their heroic struggle to sever the tie that bound them to the mother country. It was a sentiment bred on the soil, nurtured by the hardships of the wilderness, nnd emboldened by the success that hud attended their efforts to found an empire in a new world, against obstacles nnd dangers before which n less hurdy raco would hnvo fallen.' And throng- out tho formative stages of tho American Republic, Hint sentiment paramount in every etep taken to consolidate the Union, nnd thus to derive a substantial, common benefit, from a Revolution 'sustuincd against such fearful odds, nnd a nationality so hardly won. The spirit which actuated our fathers, is identical with that which has ever since im pelled the American people to guard their rights and their liberties from foreign inter fcrcncc. This spirit has increased with the growth of the country with the extension of the boundaries of the Republic, until the Atlantic joins hands with the Pacific, nnd tho American Eagle exteuds its protecting aegis over a people more prosperous und weullhy.in all the elements of national greaU uess, than any upon which the sun ever shone. It is not, therefore, a fanaticism of modern times, which hus led to that more vigorous manifestation of the American Hen timent w Inch hus of lute grown into n move ment of gigantic force ; but n well considered conviction of the people that tho welfare of n continent, subdued by their indomitable tner. gy and toil, should bo entrusted, not to the ignorant domination of a foreign rabble, but to the patriotism nnd intelligence of those born on the soil, und cherishing lively recol lections of the sacrifices by which their liber ties weio secured. It is not religious bigotry it is not n fa. nntical prejudice against the refugees from Ireland, from Germany, or any other country it is not the ism of that secret organization rejoicing in the knieknnmo of Know Noth ings which runs through this sentiment of .Miliunulily of Americanism. It is u far nobler, higher, and more pervading uspira lion, which dates back to the foundation of tho Republic, nnd anterior to that, coursed through tho veins of tho Pilgrim Fathers when they crossed tho blue waves to escape religions persecution, and sought the New World ns n home for themselves and their posterity. Religious bigotry has afflicted all ages nnd countries. It is inseparable from the superstition which is inherent in tho uu enlightened' mind. It is a perpetual attend unt of all religions, and is rather antagonistic llinn peculiar to that puro and liberal cliris. tinuity, which pervades our Republican insti tutions. It is ullicd to Unit fanaticism wlnVh i. . . mis given inriii to no many monstrous sects m noliginn, and perverted the gospel from the purpose of its founder, into un apology and support for every disreputable Urn that charlatans have palmed oil' upon our fallen race. It entered strongly into Know Xothingism, und much to do with tho reaction iu the pub- he minil ugauist that new party, whose mush, room growth could not assimilate a principle so opposed to the catholicity of our institu. tions. lint tho truu American sentiment bears no-affinity to religious intolerance. Such a relationship would rob it of its very being, and make the fabric of national great ness it has rented, to crumble into the dust. Tho sentiment of which wo speak is part of our national hie, and throbs in every pulsu. tion of the American heart. Washington commemorated it in his Farewell Address when he warned us against "untangling al liances" with foreign powers, and urged the importance oi educating tno musses, as a qualification for freedom. Who eould not see in the burning words of that last mani festo of the father of his country, a patriotic warning not only against tho evil influence of foreign Governments, but tho ignorant multitudes who would flock to our shores, and claim the prerogatives of citizens of the model Republic, without identifying them. selves with our people, or comprehending the simplest elements of our free institutions! Washington saw that our colonial tutelage hud left us in tho leading strings 'of foreign inllneiice. o wero yet nn infant nation, subject to all the emergencies of a struggling uutiouality. While nu had acquired politi eal independence, we had not yet asserted the supremacy of our commerce, our manu factures, our mechanic nrts, or anything else peculiarly American. Fortunately tho exigenciea of our position, nnd tho necessity lor subduing a new conti nent to tho uses of man, havo stimulated the inventive genius of the country; and in the useful arts we have for outstripped the trans atlantic nations. They have been glad to follow our lead in this high department of art, and havo learned to respect the genius of our inventors, und the skill of our mechanics and nrtizans. It will soon be our privilege to lead the world in enterprise and commer cial during, in manufactures and the arts und to influence mankind by the furtility of our genius us well us by tho liberality, of our republican policy, and our free form of gov eminent, Wo are , growing more indepeu. deut of Europe, Willi the progress of every year. The sentiment of nationality bus be. come permanent nnd active in the hearts of the puoplo, und we are less und less inclined to tolerate the prominence which the foreign clement has gradually acquired in our popu- lation nnd government Foreign Immigration will still be welcome to our shores, and the blessings of our institutions will be extended ns froely as ever to ihe oppressed of every country! but wo niustbc allowed to ule America after our own" heart, in accordance with the enlightened priueiples we inheritor from our fathers. This Is the American sen tiiuent, mid foreigners (fill rail against it in vain. It is n part of our nalinnalttv, nnd will gain additional strength ns the fabric of our greatness towers ubovo nil opposing nationalities. l-if The old belle und the fast girl are sketched by tho Nowport correspondent of the Tinios: "A melancholy spectacle is tho old belle not the contented motion, who. huviinr n. joyed the )reslige of b. iuty in girl-hood, subsides with grace i'i.i dignity Into the do- ". l l'l..

The affection of youthful costume, the childish lisp and inane ogle, the artifices of the toilet, the eagerness for notice, und an insatiable nppetits for compliment, are, morally speaking, iu hideous contrast to gray hairs, crows' feet, and the full-grown evidences of maternal responsibility. To see theso traditional charmers on the iiii lite for beans among younger and fairer aspirants, to watch the sickly smile, tho fitful glance of triumph or envy, the faded yet uneasy look and dubious complacency, und to associate theso with ono who has gone through the deepest human experience, und yet remains frivolous and vain, is far more provocative of sorrow than of mirth; it is old ago without tho love and honor which should attend it n phantom of folly, an effigy ol werldlincss! Such a onn was found weeping in the corri dor of the hotel here; nnd when asked the camu of her tears, sobbed out, 'Xo one nd. mires me now.'

A shadow may pass over his brow, and silence may seal his lips, but his natural buuyuticy will soon acquire the ascendant und his joyous laugh aud cheerful smile will soon bo heard and seen again. If he cannot say anything complimentary, he has the good sense uud manly feeling to keep his peace. If he can not praise hu will nut blame. Scandal has no charms for him, and malignity is utterly for eign to his disposition. Ileconstantly tries lo gladden and encourage, to cheer the despond iug and uufuituuute, to assist and relievo to the extent of his ability. The head of a house hold, or the masterspirit of uu establishment, possesses, to. a considerable extent, the means of making or muring the comfort and happi. ness of nil who look up to, depend upon, or feel the exercise of Ins influence! Imagine u peevish, fretful and dissatisfied individual un. der theso circumstances! His very appearance creates a shudder, tor ho is certain to Bay something harsh, cold ur uncivil, and, thus to irritatu Icelmgs, trample upon sensibilities, or stimulate prejudices nnd passion. Hu is mis erable himself and, according to tho old adage, inlserry loves company. He moves about like a troubled spirit, and instead of a smile, a cheering word aud nn encouraging look, a frown, a rebuke or a grumble are certain to characterize his progress.

' THE FATE OF TURKEY. : : The Lynchburg Virginian says: ... In tho course of the recent debrile in tho Ilrilish House of Lords, on the Turkish Loan bill. Eurl Grey made the extraordinary decla ration, that no man In his senses could believe that the Turkish. Government would be iu existence forty years hence. No matter w hat may bo the issue of the . w arbetweu Russia und tlie Western powers, Earl Grey holds, that the fato of the Ottoman cmpiro issealed. The plain inference from his prediction is that if France nnd England triumph over tlie Czar iu the present struggle, they will nboU Ish tho Sultan's Empire, and appropriate his dominions to themselves, whilst the Russian . monarch .will do thu same thing in case h should bu successful. We imagine that the sentiment of Earl Grey will not be particu. ' larly relished by the Sultan. This feeble po-. teiitale is styled by the Queen ol England,' on nil public occasions, her "faithful ally; nnd ho bus been taught to believe that the Eastern war was undertaken fur tlie sole purpose or defending the integrity of his em me. Uefore the war commenced, it was proclaimed again nnd again by llrlilsli states- . men of nil parties '.hat Ihe continued rxis. tenco of the Ottoman empire was iibsolutcly essential to tho maintenance of the balance of power iu Europe and that the Sultiui's throne should bo propped lip at all hazards and at whatever rost. Rut uow one of tho most distinouished statesmen of Enohnol de clares, with the most perfect coolness and nonchalance that Turhvy cannot possibly exist, as an independent "potter, forty year longer, aud that no man in his senses expects that she will. This is but u reiteration of the sentiment of the Czar, that the Turk is "a sick man," and lliat measures Bhould bo Inken relative to the disposition of his. prop, crty after his deecaso. A Small Potato Husband Lost. Mrs. Smith has lost her husband. She suspects that he ran sway with another man's wife, wliich, of course, Smith oui'lit not to have done without her consent. These Smiths particularly the masculine Smiths arc, as is notorious, a rather scaly set. Several of them have been tr ins-ported to Botany Hay, and iiutte n number havo lieeti hung nut enou"h, it would seem How a smait.proper woman, like the InJy whoso advertisement wo copy, ever allotted herself to bo wheedled into marrying a Smith, is"not clear. It is pleasant, however, to know that she bei.rs up against her atlnctions like a true woman. All she asks Is to gi't her touguo at Ihe rascally ab sconding Smith for half nn hour, and she will be satisfied j' Perhaps, after all, it was a con siderable amount of experimental knowledge of tho power of Mrs. Smith's tongue that caused Mr. Smith to decamp. If so, it is is not likely that 2 wilt tempt him. to return. But we are anticipating the advertisement, which wo publish as found in the Mount Hol ly Minor. .
