Advices from the I'i'.y of Mexico, to the S9ih of Jan U irr, announce that General Blancarte lnd returned lo Tepic, (Jalistvi) with 400 men. This General Blancarte has lately been fig uring extensively in Lower California s a sort of secretary, on the watch for "American fillibustrrs" faun San Francisco, But he seems t't have come to ihe conclusion that he has been on a fool's errand, as he unties to s friend in the City of Mexico, that he is fully impried with Ihe idea Dial Lower CaL ifornia will soon fall undi r the ban of some American expedition. He says, already Ihe Mexican population arensxions for such an advent. Most of the large landed propri et rsaretiow in the Opper California en deavoring to sell their lands lo Americans, This being the case, the General does not see the ulillity of taking up arms, to protect his countrymen, in liwer California, from "a stranger" whom themselves are inviting lo enter in, and lake possession. Mis return, therefore, looks like a virtual abandonment of Lower California, so far na the Federal Government is concerned, lo the first Yan kee filliliuiler that comes n'ono.

'Die bill passed Ihe House by a large in j -ril v and will o through the JSeOale with but lillle objection. This is believed to be the first instance since the adoption of the Con si it til ion in which ihe North and Soulli have harmonized on a bill invulviiii; "legislation on the subject of shivery." RuhI.D Alive. A late Flench journal contains the lollow ing strange story: A young married woman of Culluire, near thisi'ity. utter being ill tor some time, fell, one day lasl week, into a complete stale of Insensibility, and was supposed to be dead, A medical timn who w..s called ill gave a cer lilit-ale of the death, and tlieyuug won. an was laid out, and ill due lime, la-leiied up in a collin. In Ihe niilit. some women, who were silting up lo watch the deceased, he ird suli dued groans and sighs in Ihe collin. They II d in dismiiy, and the neighbors, oil hearing their account of the matter, proposed to have the colliii opt'iied; but the husband of Ihe w om or would nn: hear of such a thing, as il would be, he said,a profanation of the dead. The mother ol Ihe young woman, he w ever, broke open the v 'llin wi l a hatchet, and it then tinned out h l ihe youni; '.toman was lltil dead, but hill! only been III a U-tllHIilV. Medical assistance was procured for her, and in a short tune she recovered perfect con sciousness. Mht is now, we me happy to stale, going on well." Frkncii Justice.

Corruption in Cogkbs. The Cincin nati U'Zette S'j-s: "A gentleman who never was a member of Congre,s, but w ho was connected with Ihe Collins company as stockholder; snd was thoroughly acquainted with all ihe ropes, told us that it cost Ihe company $450,000 to secure the appmpri alinli referred lo by the Boston Journal; that most of the members who voted for the ap propriation were bribed or bought, or com peiinaled, or Influenced, or whatever term m iy be applied lo Ihe operation of securina voles by pu'ch se. The facts were comiiiuni caled lo us w ilhout any injunction as to se cresy, but we would not leel at liberty to di vulge the name of the author without bis Consent. We will say this much, however, that if We should name Ihe gentleman in the Gazette, verj few men hi or out of Congress would doubt Ihe statement." A Hohrid Murokr. A Mr. Kellogg, ol Delaware c, Iowa, was most brutally nitir dervd by" his wife, wonie" weeks ago. It seems ihey had lived very unhappily logeth. er for some lime, and nt the time of lb' murder occupied difT rent beds. The heads of the beds were st some disiance from the wall, and she, during his sleep, deliberately chopped his head with and axe in a most frightlul manner. One blow inflicted a deep wound directly into the brain over the left eye, extending to the lop of the head. Two others were on the right of the skull, caus ing immediate insensibility, though he re tained life for about eighteen hours. The circumstances are rendered more painful by the fuel thai the woman expected h"tirly lo as suuie Ihe relation of mother, which has since transpired, Bf.autiful Illustration. Rev. Mr. Williams, in a speech delivered to the Bap tist Sunday School in this place, sonfe lime since, used the following illustration: . , When you enter our large cities nt night nnioni; the tirsl thing that attracts your nt leniioo is tin- brilliancy of the gi.s lights. The fountain is in some distant pmtion ol the cily and the pipes are all under the ground. You see neither, you only behold nnd enjoy the effect, little thinking of the cause. Every Sabbath School in the bind is a fountain of light. 'I be schoolars are the pip a. O, if you could follow some ol them lo their homes you would be shocked to see what dark places they live in. But Ihey are "jets" lo burn there. They may burndimlv, now, but ere long Ihey will blaze out and give light to all thai are in the house. Charlollsville Jeff'ersnnian. Rich. Detroit has h id its "horrible min der" case. A Dutch peddler, aged 19 years, was seen In enter the house of a family nanied Bickly, nnd had never been seen to leave il. Suspicion of course rested there; Ihe house Was searched;' indubitable traces of murder mosi foul w.-re found such as aiiols of blood on Ihe ft .or, wall, elc t aiifl bones nd burnt clothing in the ash barrel.

Sklf.ct Theatrical Performance. A New York letter snvs: A funnv nff .ir, in Ihe fashionable world, is on the tfliitV. A number ol ladies, attached to a benevolent institution, are going to get up a select theatrical performance, lor the benefit of the funds ol ihe said institution. They have waited upon Laura Keene, and snlicted the use of her " establishment, and Liiuui it is said consents. W hat makes this thing funny is, that ladies prominent in tin cause of moral reform nnd benevolence should thus be pressing Ihe once tabooed stage into their service. Verily, the wavs of lash ion in SSt-w rora are past, iiiiuing out. The late Duel in Savannah. The wound received by Mr J. B. Hendricks of Columbus, in the duel with Mr. Kunhroiigh on Monday last near Savannah, resulted in the death ol Hint gentleman at the Pulaski House on Tuesday morning. The Columbus Sun says: . . The announcement threw a general gloom over th .1 city. Mr. H. was a high torn d g nlteinan, of modest d porlmeiil, and his loss liotn the business circle will long be felt.

Sad defect. A revt rend professor in a theological seminarv.speaking ofa notorious newspaper, says: "There is a very fair amount of latent in the ''Independent,' The editors are all able men, and some of the contribu tions are valuable. The principal delect in the paper is, that it hit never exjitrienced re Ugion." A Bitter Rebukk.

The American organs and American speak ers have not ceased since the orgnniz ilion of their parly to urge upon their eountrymeu the absolute necessity of imm diate steps to check the immigration of European paupers and criminals to this country. They have piled tact upon fact, and srgument upon ar gument to show- that anch im igraiits and their corrupting associations snd ideas were more to be dreaded than the attempts of North, rn or Southern franlics to break up th- National tJni n, Anil American papers and speakers have denied Ihe correctness ol our facts, attempted to discredit our statistics, and denounced our appeals as the merest declamation. Some of them have gone so far as to maintain that the dissemination of European labor and ideas amongst Americans, instead of isjuring, greatly benefitted our people. It is insincere for them lo say that they only desire the Imniigratioa f the in dustrious mid well disposed L'uropenns. They have never said in their platforms that they de-ired p mpcrs nnd criminals lo be kept out of our country they have never dared to propose any remedy for this enormous evil. Nor will tin y ever do so, for the main element tif llo-ir success is in the voles of such worth less vagabonds Were tin y to unite with the American party upon this single point ilone, this evil coiiM be checked. Will not honest Democrats, who love their country, thniw off 'ihe shackles of party, and unite with us in attempting to roll back from our land this black tide of crime and pauperism tt hitlj is sapping the Very foundations of our govern incut? Will they continue to be blinded to their countiy's dearest interests by the u.is representations and intrigues of poliliciais w ho would sell their country for office. We commend to their attentive perusal the fol low in communication Iroui the dialing uisheil Democrat jc Mayor ol New York city Hon. Fernando VV ood : Mayor's Office, ) New You K.Feb. 46,1855 j Hon. John Wheeleii : Dear Sir : In reply to your inquiries re. speciiog the Belgiuns. lately ill confinement in this city, 1 have the honor to advise thai they are now at liberty, and beyond the con trol of the authorities, except so lar as they niav become amenable to our laws herenllcr. judge R.iosev. lt, ol the Supreme Court, relettsed them on the -24 ill iusl., and tin y are now al large, whether lor weal or woe re mains to be seen. I resisted this proceeding, hence am con scious ol having discharged nn duty. How ever much crime or destitution may In- increas ed among us in Consequence, I shall feel tin sell reproach. I cannot, llev.-rllleless, but express regret thai they should have , been released so summarily at this lime. I never counselled their detention in prison, but ad vised thai they shouid be relumed to Ant werp, and but lor this application to the courts they would have been now on their way lliither. Their discharg In ttiia manner will, I tear, nullify m elb.rls lo prevent the emigration of criminals and paupet into litis country. It appears to establish til- fact that Ihe courts defend their iinroilui lion. Any actum of the municipal aiithoiilieS hereafter to counteract Ibis ill be. looked ii(lnn as ille gal, and will be entirely futile. ny order loal they shall not land w ill be uie hy smug gling them on shore, w hen, it ai rfsl. d mid imprisoned, a u rit of habeas crpiit sets them at liberty to depredate vjurn our j lives and jinifierly. j II may not be known to you I hit very ex tensive preparations nn- now being made in Germany, ill Belgium, nnd other tuitions of Europe lor the Inrtber exportation o! the same class of people. In Switzerland, the preparatory movements have bei-a so exten sive, thai tile cantonial govcrniients are now legislating as to the cheapest and best in tale of g'-lting them away, . A singular lact in connection with the property ol the towns and villages of Swil z. i hind adds an additional induteinetit lo Ihe banishment of their p upers ami criminals. The laud ami forests belong to Hie commune, and in many instances w otrd amount in value lo 500 or lo 700 I nines per individual. The loc l authorities, therefore, l.uo a double oiijecl in gelling rid -if the poir. The ex peuse of I In ir support, iiml ot tkeir ciime, are not only removed forever, but the properly interest ol those remaining increased by gel. ting rid ol so largt n portion of the popula lion. Ollicial stat. m-iils show that in some of the districts one-sixth ol the whole popu lation subsist bv public alms. ' The principle of s If preservation from the evils of criminal and pmper emigration re commended hy me, are fully understood in Switzerland. 'These villages and communes are far more jealous of their own local inter est, even against each other, than we have ever shown ourselves against foreign na tions. A pauper resident in one canton is not per milted lo become a resident of uiioihiT can ton. , Every one visiting into another c niton, even under the plea ol looking lor work, is closelt watched, and Ihe p .ssports and papers, wil'i which they must always be provided, closely examined. The same, and even to a greater extent, is the case in Germany. None dare venture into a neighboring State without a passport and other requisite papers; and if he is lound to be desiilule (for on the bor ders ofa country every one must show a certain sum ot unmet ) he is immediately or dered bark and, if necessary, transferred (orcihy b.ck by Ihe police, fearful that by entering Ihey will bt-eome a public charge. - This appears to ba the domestic policy of these countries toward each oilier, bill who, however, have no commr eii'.n of conscience or regard for our rights, in ir mslerring lh. su outcast to our care. I l-wever contending w illi each olio r as to the rare of these uofor. lunates, they aiiarto make common eaute in saddling (hem Mjmn us. Therefore, in not receiving i hem. and in forcibly sending them hack, we but follow the policy of the coun tries from which Ihey came. The late grand jury of this cily, say, in their presentment "In connection with this subject, Ihe grand jury would call the atten tion to the sources if mir crime and pauperism. They louiul Hint, in the institutions visited by them, t ut Iy three fourths of the inmates were foreign birth." While the cily must maintain Iho-e now upon its usuds, it is no p rt of its duty t hear the burden of the crime, luuacy,aiid piiuperiein ol foreign conn tries. If we had to maintain only that which original' s among us, Ihe burden would be light. While 've would extend welcome and encouragement to the industrious and well ill. posed emigrant, from rvery country, we should.ssfttraspossible.prsvsullhesnterance among us of those who must become a pub lic charge. The number nf alien passengers who ar rived at this port 1. st year was 319,223, of w hich 186,860 were from Germany and Sw it zerland. . My observation and experience within the past three mouths have forced pie lo the conclusion that it is in a port urn of the emi gration from these countries that our institu tion are lo receive their greatest shock, our morality its severest taints, and our local toxa tion its largest addition. I do not wish to he understood as asserting that this emigration is detrimental as s whole. Among them are many honest, industrrvOt, and thrifty people, whose presence here may be called a blessing to ihe country; but il is to that portion thai I allude, who, like the Belgians, have been sunt out of their own country as paupers or criminals. - If nearly tiro hundred thousand found their wav here in IR51. (manu beine transferred directly from the ship to the alms house) ken il was a doubltul question wiictlier our au thorities had not Ihe pow er lo imprison them, how many may we not look for when it is known abroad that a simple application of s writol halieas corpus will place them nl large, in defiance of nil uiiinicipnl regulations? The process of filing our prisons and alms houses has now become simplified. The for-: eign government who desires lo rid itself of Ibis burden, hits but to instruct its Minister or Consul to engage the services of some attorney at the port in this country where it is to lie sent, and a writ itlukeu out, and "the deed is done." In view of these facts, I need not add that legislation is demanded wilhout any delay, lo put a stop toil. I hope Congress will do something for us. The country can be serv ed in no better or more effectual manner, as fur as respects the welfare of the people. verv resppctfullv, FERNANDO WOOD, Mayor. How to take out the Scent. Silling on the pizza of the Catiirnc t, was a young, fop pish. looking gentb mnn, his garments very highly scented with a mingled oder of musk and cologne.

Burdell Tragedy. A Bloody Carpet Bag. On Saturday alter the mur der of Dr. Burdell, sat g the New York Times of February 19, a man called at the trunk store of Mr. Hill, No. 439 Hudson street, near Morton, and purchased a large c.rpet bag, into which he put a bundle of clothing, after which he locked the big and look the key, stating at the same tini-, thai he would leave the hag for a short time, as he Was going to New Haven, The hag re mained for several days and Hie man not cal ling, suspicion arose in Mr. Hill's mind that the bag might have sonn- connection wilh the Und street nil ir. Mr. Hill called in a policeman and the bag was opened, and its couteiHs examined it contained a number nf bloody garments, and oilier susjii cious indica'.ions, which it is thought may afloid n clue t. unravel the mystery lliut sur rounds the Burdell tragedy. Benefit of the Springs. A lady brought a child to a physician to consult him about its precious health. Aniongnthcr things she inquired if he did not think the springs Would be useful? "Certainly, madam," replied the doctor, ns he eyed theel lid, and then took a large pinch ol snuff. "I haven't the least hesitation in recommending the springs nnd the sooner you apply the remedy Ihe better." "You ically think it would be good for the dear little thing, don't you!" "Upon my word it's the best remedy I know of." "What springs would you recommend, doctor!" . "Any will do, madam, where you can get plenty of soap and water" A Singular Complaint. We find the following paragraph in the Springfield Re publican of Thursday morning: Complaints nre made of the brevity of the prayrsol Rev. Daniel Foster, the chaplain of the' Massachusetts House of Representatives; one morning fie occupied but thirty seconds, and another b-ss than a minute.

A THRILLING INCIDENT. The tragedy of Nacogdoches, and the ro mantic incidents which led to the Texan War of Independence, find their parallel only in the Roman history of Lucretia and the elder Brutus. Juan Casto was person of influence and bravery in the wild forest, but he fall under the displeasure of Santa Anns, and his min ion, Pedraa, the commandant of Nucogdo. ches was sent to arrest him. He arrested the father al the supper tuble, attended by his only daughter, s young girl of surprising beauty and intelligence. He loaded him with chains, and cast him Into prison, notwith standing her prayers and entreaties. Finally he proposed to free the father, if the daugh ter would consent to sacrifice her innocence and honor. She rejeoted the infamous pro posal wiih a blow in the face. The ruffian swore a horrible oath to execute his will on them both.
