The Ni cartings steamer h:u engaged to enrry out Hve hundred men, pretended emigrants, under the protection of Parker II. French. District , Attorney McKeon protested against It, and telegraphed the President fur instruction". ' Shortly, after 3 p. in. the United Statu Marshal received a despatch from Washing ton ordering the seizure and detention of Uc "Northern Light," and oflicera were Inline dintely sent on board for that purpose. Tho counsel Of tho Accessory Transit Company declared the vessel should leave at tho usual hour. Subsequently, however, hu and the Captain went lo the District Attorney's office to aeo what arrangement could be made. The result of the interview is not known. About 4 o'clock the Northern Light got tinder way, but had not proceeded far before she was Intercepted by n revenue cutter, which fired a blank cartridge to bring her to, but without effect. She then fired u shot two or threo feet ahead of her bows, which brought her to and compelled her to return. When tho steamer left the wharf there were three United States oflicera on buard of her. The steamer has been brought back to the city. Between three and four hundred young men, whose appearance indicated that they wore Nicarnguan adventurers, were on board. One of the number confessed they were such, and also stated that they had been engaged by French and others. Declaration of Independence. A Wash. Inglon letter to thu New York Herald says: "There is a remark-able whisper going the rounds, that tho original Declaration of In dependence had been stolen. Thin, if so, was done sr.ine month ago, by petting it co pied fac similii', and exchanged in tho night by some of tho watchmen. There are six employed, who take turns in being upon . guard, and the supposition is that sumo of " tlit-ut have opened the caso with a false key, '. taken out tho parchment from its frame and iiubsliliited tho counterfeit. This could only fliavo been done by those who have the entry if the building. President's Message What's in the Wind Now. Tho N.itional Intelligencer, in commenting upon the deplorable delay in thu organization of tho House of Representa tives, faya: From tho disclosures which took place in tho course of last month of the complicated state of our relations with Kngland, and the critical nature of unadjusted uiatlerM between the two government, there is room to infer that tho pent up national expose of the oxu culive is of far inoro than ordinary impor tance; and during the inability of congress to receive thu communication and to take such cognizance as may be proper of our foreign affairs, tho executive may, by foreo of circum stance, be drifting inlo'difl'cultie which tho national legislature, if made uwaro of them, might enable them to avoid. The very fact of Hie unsusal and scrupulous care taken to keep the message secret until it is laid before Congress, strengthens the probability of its unsusal importance, it is therefore, most earnestly to be hoped that thu House will put an end to the idlo ceremony on which ivlraoat three weeks have been spent, and seo to the state of public iill'drs. Much further delay may bo Iraiiglit with the gravest con sequences. Cabse and Effect. The Kmpress Eu gene expects to present the French nation with an heir to tho throne; no tho ladies of the French Court wear hoops; to the French haul ton wear hoops; so the American ladies hoops. It is to be Imped they will enjoy this convenient and grand contour until ihit event takes place, when the ladies of the French Court will subside, the ladies of the French haul ton will subside, and the American ladies will subside. iW Tho President has appointed, by and with tho advice and consent of the Senate, Frank Roiilhac. Surveyor of tho Customs at Hickman, Kentucky; and V. Irving Crundall, Surveyor of the Customs at Chaltauooga, Tennessee. Kansas, as bounded by its organic law, extends to the Rocky ilouiitoins, 700 miles from the Missouri river. It is about 190 miles from north to south. l-ff- John A. Winston, was inaugurated as Governor of Alabama, Tor the second lorm, nt Montgomery, on the 88lh lilt. gy JudgeS. II. Stuart, one of the city judges in New York, and who has rcceully undergone a severe trial for corruption In of. fiee, for which he was acquitted, has resign- cd. . , But little reliance can be placed in the many rumors of a cessation of hostilities in he Eastern war. The prospect of peace ) is a remote as ever. K"To be thrown upon one's own re- sources, is to be cast upon the very lap of , fortune, for our faculties undergo a ooveiop i ment, nud display an energy of which they were previously unperceptuble. I9JT Pluto Inculcates this precept: Do tbiue own work, and know thyself. .-i?"The election of n permanent Speaker has not always becu regarded as a necessary preliminary to the organization of Congress. A caso in point occurred In 1839, w hen Mr. iiarlnnd, tho Clerk, refused to accept tho cre dentials of tho, member from New Jersey when they were presented with tho broad seal of the Stato attached. Wrangling and confusion reigned for a number of day, and the House was finally organized on a motion that Mr. Adims of Massachusetts bo conxid ered Speaker until a regular election could bo bad. TIs? Boston Courier gives the follow. !ng account of the matter: "John Quincy Adams was then n member of tho House of Representative. He remain ed quietly nt his seat and listened to the pend ing turmoil with what piticnrTe he could, and said nothing. At last, howover, thu patieneo ot the old man was exhausted, and rising hastily from his chair, ho poured forth a strain of burning, withering eloquence, which reached every man's heart, lie appealed to the repreatCratfMgsaMKy if they wru prepared to suoinilfTTStffl sialu q things if they wero willing to submit to the diets, tinn nr,d control ot a mere Clerk a daily stipendiary of Congress! " The old man had m'arcely taken hi seat before Robert Barnwell Rlicttof South Car olina arose, and moved that 'John Quincy Aduiim of Massaehum tt, be elected Speaker till a regular Speaker Is elected.' This mil lion was nearly unanimously adopted, and thu llolliu of that day was organized, and we may hope that some similar movement may be mace today." Akmv and Navy Estimate.-TIio fol lowing abstract of estimated naval expendi tures for the fiscal year 1856-67 shows the progressive importance of that urm of the national defence: Navy proper $8,112,418 Marine, 851,113 Navy yards 2,217,939 Hospitals, 4,400 Magazines 14'-',0i( Miscellaneous, 3,085,985 813,521,505 The increase In the estimates for thu ma- rine corps is S350,U0(, which is proposed to be appropriated for thu erection of barrack at Boston, Brooklyn, Cosport, and Pcusacnla. The estimates under other heads of appro- propriation are not materially different from the appropriations for tho current fiscal year. Tho estimates for the army are as follows: Army proper 6 12.t23.-J18 West Point Academy, 173,891 Fortifications, ordinances, &'c. 2,730,349 .: Total for the army and dependent branches of thu service, $15,027,480 Total for both military sorviccs 28,551,985 1'uoci.amation. Nashville, Dee. aoth, 1855. To the Councils of the A merican Party in each Congressional District nf Tennessee: It is hereby ordered that you open and hold nn election for a delegate to represent your Congressional Distiiet in the National Council to meet in Philadelphia on the 18th of Feb ruary, 18513, and thu National nominative Convention on tho 22d of February. Tho polls will be opened on the 1st of Jan uary, and the vote will be declared and an nounced on the 20lh day of January. It is hoped this duty will he -promptly at tended to, as it is all important that a full re presentation shall lie had in those bodies. WM. II. CAMPKKI.I,, President of the Mate Council. Important if TitUE. The New York Post's Paris correspondent writes: "Marshal Pclissicr demands permission to evacuatu tho Crimea forthwith. Jlu declares that it is impossible to continue operations on account of thu want of water for the horses of the army. Tho Russian have poi soned thu wells, and he ask what is the use of keeping an army of 160,000 men shut up in their iutrenchmunls? It will be sufficient to leave garrisons at four or five points, but there is much fear hero in regard to the moral effect of an evacuation of tho Crimen. Thu mutter is still undecided. It is proba ble, however, that the advice of Marshal Pe. lissier wiil be adopted. It is also said that Kngland wishes next spring to undertake alone thu maritime expedition against Cmn stradl, reserving to herself, however, of do. maniliug the aid of an army for disembarka tion in caso of necessity. South Carolina I.euislature This body adjourned Sine die one the evening of the 19th hist. Tlie bill to give the election of the Presidential electors lo the people was lost. The bill relating to tho imprisonment of negro seamen was not reached. Tho bill to prevent non-residents from hunting or ducking in the Statu was passed. Nothing' was done in relation to tho affairs of Kansas. A meeting of the members of thu Legis lature, called to appoint delegates to the Cin cinnati Conventlon,Idid not act for the want of time, but it is Said that over fifty of the members aro in favor of having the Slate represented in the Democratic National Con vention. Shookiho Ciiuelty. V'o have to record, says tho Portlnnd Advertiser, on the 5ih inst. one of the most violent manifestations of filial ingratitude that ever came under our no tice. Mr. Longfellow, fresh from the Indian country, says that a warrior having got "ve ry angry," "Seized his grandmother and threw hex Up iuto tlie fky ut midiiiuhl. Right ngainat the niouu he threw her; 'Til hor body you see therel" Giitijibbewuwuuascaloola, tho deputy she riff of tlie tribe, was on truck of the villain ut last accounts. if Dr. Oliver W, llolmes'oratlon before the New England Society, New York, on the night of the Slat, created n great sensation. He denounced the Abolitionists of New Eng land in good round terms as "traitors tu tlie Union," snd was hissed, which was met by repeated rounds of applause. lie also de nounced the Maine Liquor Law ns a remnant of puritan intolerance and fanaticism. , Not Amiss. A humorist the other day remarking upon a dispute pending between the tcetollnrs and the 'jolly full bottles,' terms it tho "war of the Red and White MURDER OF MAGNATES. The New Orleans Truo Delta, a thorough going Democratic journal, makes war on the Presidential claims of certain potent, grave and reverend senior of that patty, In quito ft savage style. Messrs. Buchanan and Dallas, of Pennsylvania, are the chief victims of the Delta's onslaught. In xplanation of the ap parent popularity of the former in the Key stone State, it say : Now, ns to the Bnchananttes succeeding in the election of delegate in Pennsylvania, w e hold that H no proof whatever of the popu larity of ihrir candidate, w ith the people ut large, for the w hole federal "patronage having been i t Buchanan'A disposal, from the Collcc tnrship of Philadelphia lo the pettiest villngu Postmaster, it is not difficult, to .explain bis recent success nt local gathering. Without disputing, however, this wonderful proof of popularity, w hich person m qiiaiutcd.witli the repcetalile machinery which controls prelimi nary meetings lu re and elsewhere wilf under stand; we may be permitted to express mod estly and ittiriiiL'ly.as is ur wouviuir doubts w hether poor old Mr. Buchanan or poor old Mr. Dallas are exactly the kind of candidates, or the description of statesmen desiderated by the nation in I he present rather disorderly stale of our public all i'us. , Without prejudieo to the learned, unpreju diced and diiutercstcd supporter of Buch anan and Delia, and without any wish to take sides fur or against cither of their . ele gant and refreshing email sword and ritlu practice sides in this contest, we think we may, without offence, hint that the American people may have nu idea that two old respec table septuagenarians, even, of Pennsylvania, are scaiccly worth contending about; and that however much the elevation of either might advance the interests of particular expectant of ollice, yet so far a the public Welfare is concerned, men younger in years, of greater activity, energy and aptitude for adminislra lion may possibly he desired and demanded. Neither lluchanan nor Dallas has, we believe, yet reached his seventieth year, and probably at their lime of life. they are in good fossil preservation; but it does strike us ns being very much of a humbug seriously to put such old logics forward, at it time when tlie world is com ulscd by change, as candidates for the first officii in tlie gift of this mighty people. A the heads ot literary institutions, mi, sionary societies or African colonization schemes, Dallas and Duchnoan would be, of all others, just the men for such sober and dignified stations;. but really wo aro unable seriously to reali.e that persons cm bo scri. oils when they present the nnucs of such obsolete politicians for tho high administra tive ollice of this most progressive and en terprising people. If there bo vacancies in the Smithsonian Institute, or any other equally erudilo and learned body, wu would suggest tho names of Buchanan and Dallas as pecu liarly worthy of lii-r.ny and scientific distinc tion therein; hut as for high political offices, merely that unscrupulous intriguers fur place may control them, that second chop adven- tureis in polities may pillion themselves iuto tho Vice Presidency or a foreign mission by clasping them round the waist in the prei-i-deulial race, wo trust thu people are too w ise and intelligent ever to permit it to be done. t trif Lato accounts from South America statu that a dreadful epidemic, known ns the "uiortil'urous fever," has broken out in Peru, and four thousand persons have perished by it. This mortality being among the farmers, and a drought prevailing at the sumo time, has caused immense losses of cattle, on ac count of their getting astray in the woods and falling prey to wild beasts. The sugar and tho w In-lit crops wero all lost, and the pros pect of the planters in that country was truly gloomy and miserable. A negro insurrection, promoted by the partisans of P.chcniquc, bad taken place at Tompcz. The Sub-Prefect and Chief of Police, Senor Ordonez, marched im mediately against the rebels, dispersed them, .and made four prisoners. Rule ou Ruin. We think it highly proba ble (hero is much truth in the comment of the New York Evening Post upon the pr.ua out position and future intentions of the Ad ministration party in thu House of Repre sentatives. It ays: Theadininistratiou men c ould, in the hope lessncs of choosing Richardson, prefer an out nnd-out Republican organization ot the House. They want a fair and open light on the Kansas isuc, and their second choice for Speaker would he (iiddings of Ohio. Hard Foil tub Dog. Tlie PittsHeld Ea. gle says great regard for tho comfort of his fellow passengers, but not much for his dog, was manifested by n Frenchman who took the cars at Pitttficld, last week, for Now York. The animal was a valuable one, and hu did not like to leave him, nor did he like to tako him into tlie car, to the discomfort of tho passengers; so, procuring a stout cord, he attached one end to the dog's collar, and the other end to thu back of tlie rear cars. The train went into Bridgeport with n brass collar and a dog's car attached. Considera ble dog was strewn along tho track. Sl'UNKV. A Western editor give a cntem porary the following rather strong hint: "Tlie editor of the Social Visiter speaks ol us ns a reformed dentist, and volunteers a lit tle, advice, suggesting that we let politics alone and stick lo our profession. We beg lo inform the gentleman that we pulL teeth at the usual rate, and the noses of imperii ncnt meddlers for nothing." J-f" During tho present year, up lo the 19th ultimo, the total number nf foreign im. migrants arrived at New York, wus 129,803, against 303,918 lo same date last year; thus showing a decrease of 174,1 15. t i?"

A better marksman than the above fired at a target a foot square, placed at the distance of one-third of a mile, and hit it ninety seven times. In n comparison of seven descriptions of rilles before a commission appointed by the United States Govermenl, Sharp's was plac ed at the head of thu list. An Button Coninqyili. Mr. Jonas Crane, of Luray, Pago county, Virginia, writes to the Editor of tlie Alexandria Sentinel, stating that it was not bis biothcr, James M. Crane, who was executed for murder in California. This latter gentleman published a paper some years ago at Richmond, and is now engaged in tho editorial management of the '-California Weekly Journal." It was J. V. Crane, from Lexington, Kentucky, who was executed in California and left a wife and four or live children near Lexington. Mr. Crane, formerly of Richmond, never was married, and, from the statements of those who know him, is not the sort of a man to get into unlawful scrape or to commit murder. His friends will be happy to read this contradiction of what seemed to them nt first blush u very improba ble story. Socialism in China. Socialism has been thoroughly canvassed and even practiced whilst Europo was eating acorns. At Pckin is ii Phalanstery called the "House of Hens' Feathers," where the poor are bulged for one fifth ol a farthing per night. It is simply a vast ball thickly strewn with feathers. Men, women and children all lie down together in the beauty of communism; an immense cov erlet is then let dow n over the party, with boles through which tho sleepers put their heads, so as not to sulfucate. At day light the phalansterian canopy is hoisted up, after a signal on the tarn tarn to invito holu holders to draw back their beads or swing. These bipeds then crawl around in the sen of dirty down till they find their wretched rags, and then depart to make n fresh start in life. Statistics of Cincinnati, Ohio. The fol lowing statement show s to a good advantage tho trade uiid commerce of the great city of tlie Ohio valley. The annual value uf its manufactures is 52,109,374. Its imports annually are valued at 675,000,0(10 and its exports at $G0,Ou0,00O. There aro six thou, sand miles of railway now diverging from tho city and four thousand miles under construc tion. Vifhx the City Court,Mobile,on Wednes day last, Sarah Bcaslcy was found guilty of murder in the first degre, with tho penally ol being confined in the penitentiary for life. It will be remembered that. her husband was sentenced to be hung a few days since on tho same churge, on the first of February, for the same crime. Politicians. "As lor politicians, says John Smith, Jr.,ln a letter to tho Dally News, "there is not ono in tlie world who, as a pol iticiun in practice, I would depend upon for un hour whom I would bulieve on Ins oath. Your well-schooled politician I have always found a well-schooled scoundrel."
