The S'a Serpent Hgain.—Capt. Adams, <>f the sHir.
l.i: v :ii <i Nancy, wiiich arrived a! Jacksonville, Florida,
:n tin* 1st instant, from New York, had sight of a mon
ster in many resp*-da resembling the sea monsters des
cribed by many others.
Captain Adams states that on the morning of Sunday,
the It.Ii of February, about 9 o’clock, when iff ihe
squill point of Climb* rlaiul Hand, about 12 miles from
tlie S:. .1 -hiFs (Fl.i.) bar. the attention of himself, crew
ai d passengers, was suddenly riveted upon an immense
1 sea m< i;-ter, which he took to be a serpent. It lifted i s
11 id, witicli was that of a snake, several times out of the
watt r, s< em igly to take a survey of the vessel, and at*
sueli t un s displayed the largest portion of its body and
n pair • f frightful fins or claws several feet in length.
Ills fail was nut s» en at any time; hut judging from the
diinen>i ms t f.lie body, the Captain supp ses the leviathan
to be about ninety feet in length. Iis neck tapered sina'I
from the head to the body, and it appear.d to measure a
bout seven feet across the broadest part uf the back. The
color i f the creature was that of a dirty brown. \A In n
first seen it was moving towards the mouth of the St.
John’s. The monster moved from the side of the vessel
rind p aced rself athwart its track, in front of her b-c.v-:
hut Captain Adams, not feeling partiail loan encounter
wi h iiis snakrsliip, ordered the vessel to be kepi off. A
buy on the deck, not knowing his antagonist, had seized
» harpoon, and was in the act ot striking, when he was
prevented by t;.e vessel’s moving off.
Sinn ing at an Kerning Parly.—The process of sing
ing a -M.ng a: an evening party may thus be described:
Tne y.nmg lady, on being led to the piano, first throws
a timed glance round the room, ostensibly to evince a.
gent e conl’u-ioii; m reality, to see who is looking at her.
''he then observes to the miiiistress of the house, “that
she is not in very good mice, having a slight cold,”
which she < nfir.ns by a faint sound, something betwen
a >i_h, a smi'e, and a single knock cough.—The hostess
replies. ‘ ();i.but y m always sing so delightfully.” The
young ltd v answers, that “she is certain she cannot ibis
evening,” p. s'rongtbeu which opinion she makes some
your g gentleman exceedingly] »yous by giving him her
n.unpirt to I,old, ami, drawing off her gloves in the most
app:oved style, lucks them behind one of the candle
4 v-'. tog.-ilier w ith her flimsy handkerchief, in such a
fashion, that its deep Deed border or embroidered name
may be seen to the best advantage.
The f. p of the piano, which hid been opened for the
quadrilles is then shut down by an active gentleman, who
pinches lifs fingers in ihe attempt; the musicians form a
^e it s of diss Ling views, and disappear, no one knows
where, rmr ever will; and the young Inly takes beryl ice
at the pi m paid as she plays the chords of the key she
m abmit to luxuriate in, every body is not perfectly silent,
so she finds the umsicstoo] is too high, or too In*, or
something of ihe kind, and the pedals appear exceed
inglv diili ult t» be found. At length, every thing being
still, she phys the symphony again, and then smiling at
the Imste-s, and saying, “that she is certain that she
shall break down brings out the opening note of the
r c:t;tive, which makes the drops of the chanJ.lier vi*
urate again, and silences a couple who are whispering
: 11 sorts of soft nothings on a causeuse in the hack draw
ing room./—■JVatvral History of Kvenv'g Parties.
Tin? Louisville Journal has the following state
' merit:
A iiiemb* r f the la’eCongress has given us some ad
din n.a! !:»*•:s in regard to Gen. Cass’s taking his seat in
ti c Senate, lie did lake his seat on the last day of the
r< _■ iar se^ion, at 9 o’clock at night, in order ijiat by a
serva-e « t' three hours, he might obtain his regular mile
age t’>r tint session.
1 ;r the three hours that Gen. Cass sat in the Senate
he California bill,involving the slave question,was “the
appointed su:>j-c*: of consideration. It was by bis speech
ami action upon this subject, during the three hours,that
- lie was to earn his $200 of mileage, lie sat, however,in
peri ot siU nee, not speaking one word, and n<-t giving
'd l'ri i d or f e the slightest intimation as to what was
i,*s view.' r what would be his vote upon the slavery
quev:>>u involved in the bill.—Shortly after midnight,
matters t k a turn in the debate, w hich seemed toindi
cate that a vote was about >o he taken, and that Sena'or

juuirn fl up in his place;said that it,
was afu r tweive o’clock, asserted that the Senate was no
1 ger a S; .ate, declared that he considered himself a
in re sp etator. and that lie should refuse to vote upon
any question that might be taken.
Thus it seems, that, having sat out his lhr«e hours,
and thereby secured his $2,000, he was determined not
to serve a moment longer, lest jierchance he might ren
der service over and above the money’s worth, and es
pecial y as he was determined not to commit himself
by a vote upon the territorial slave question as Jong as
there was a possibility, by any pretest whatever, of
avoiding it.

The affairs of Lalv are rapidly hastening lo a cri>is.—
Our readers ar* aware that Austrian diminution has
been completely re established at Milan and throughout
Lombardy. 'lb. s will make the interposition of Austria,
Rossi» or Spun, in behalf of the P ipe, more easy. The
idea of poor, decrepit Spain interfering is rather ludicrous,
but she may possibly mike the fffirt. The revolution
at Rome is complete. The Pope has been stripp’d of all
secular power and a Republic estib’ished. The Roman
Constituent Assembly lias gone to work with great bold
ness. A 1 ilie propeiiy iifthe Church his b**ea confisca

lion warning p rs .s n it t > purchase any Church prop
erty 1 dTere I f *r «i'e by thj U-m i!»]i -an g »vernmerit. The
Assembly ha* also dr ■ * r»d universal freedom of conscience
anil taken s.eps i » a > di&h all eccDsias ical c iurts, and all
clerical privileges and exempti ns,in matters of civil juris
prudence. ( lose on he heels of these enactments,so ex- 1
traordinary in the annals of the Eternal City .and so hard
to realize, the British and Foreign Biide Societies have ,
scattered in R >m * tin usands ofc .pies of the sacred vol
ume, whilst lilt- Tract and other benevolent associations
have had published, in the Italian,abridged editions of the 1
most attractive works of a religious character. These
are Wonderful events, it must be confessed, and the ques
tion recurs, will the progress <>f freedom and reform n >t
be arrested by f reign interference? Austria on the
North, and Naples n the South, have armies watching
t!» opportunity unavailing the Roman Republic, and
nothing but the string. st .remonstrances on the part of
England and France can avert the outrage. England,
it is said, has protested against Naples interfering._
I ranee, ot lam but too prompt to take upon herself
the redrt ot the grievances ot other Stales —of her own
accord lo assume the protectorship of liberty wherever
struggling i ito > i ig—is now rumored to have turned a
deaf ear m’iie application tor intervention preferred bv the
Repu dicans ot R ;N\ rile Pr it< stant England is be
lieved, from 111 t:ws of policy with reference to the bal
ance of power, t. be willing t<j see the Pope re-establish
Austria his. in t*. •(, invaded tlie It >man territory, on
a pretext afl r led by tlr* murder of three soldiers and an
insult "fibred her Consul, at Ferrara. Her troops have
crossed the Po ami taken p isse^-ioii of that city, and
levied a ceitributi 1.1. I ne designs of Russia arc scarce
ly longer concealed. Should Austria, in her efforts to
restore the Pope ami to crush the R *p ibltcao cause in
Tuscany and II one. meet with serious opposition from
England, France or Piedmont, there is little doubt that
Russia will promptly come to her aid, with an over
whelming f rre. On the whole, we have little hope that
the Roman Republic can maintain itself. We fear the
Pope will be re-o.-tablished and Ins States enjoy again the
unenviable distinction of being the worst governed of any
in Europe, while hi* people will be exposed to the vin
dic'ive p licy id a restored government—and that a gov
ernment of piiess.
We Would hope, it there were ground for hone, that
the news contained in the following telegraphic despatch
from St. \j uis is un!rue, or at, least, .greatly exaggera
ted ; but we see no reason t» question its accuracy.—
Col. h remont, at the ‘.aI*■ si previous dates, was encoun

goons with inuFsaml provisions to relieve Col. Fremont’s
men. Col. Fremont, though much emaciated and worn
out by anxiety and the deprivations to which he had
been subject d, accompanied the dragoons.
The sufferings .1 the party are represented to have
been so very great that th y were even reduced to the
necessity «»t !*•« ding upon the bodies of their comrades.
Mr. Greene who brought this news t» Independence,
leit Santa Fe several days alter its publication.
1. ter reports say that all ot Col. Fremont’s party per
ished excel t himself, and he is badly frost bitten.
Our Cum spondent at Independence expresses doubts
as to the correctness of this news, but we do not see with
what reason.
The two great part es in 'Tennessee are sounding notes
of preparation for the general election which takes place |
early in August. Nut much is yet said of the Congres-1
sional candidates. For the < ffi-e of Governor, the Whigs
are pretty unanimously in favor of the re-election of the:
present popular incumbent, Neil S. Brown — though, as
a measure of precaution, a Convention will he held on
the 23d inst. The Democrats are divided. There are
some who,in their desperation,have turned their thoughts
upon the redoubtable Gen. Pillow. A portion of the
Democrats of Nashville, 3t a meeting held the 26ili ult.»
recommended him as a candidate. A Locofoco paper of
that city, the “Tenth Legion,” says “lie bears with
him a prestige « fdefeat.” It also states that he was a
candidate, several years ago, for the office of Major Gen.
eral in his own strongly Democratic District, and was
beaten three or four thousand votes. A State Democrat
ic Convention will be held on the 19.h of this month iu
Nashville. The Whigs have nothing t> fear, whoever
may be its nominee.
(X/* Among the officers lately made Brevet Brigadier
Generals, we note the name of “Colonel and Surgeon
G* neral Thomas Lawson.” This is somewhat novel.
We think the pious, faithful, gallant and Reverend Mr.
McCarty, w hose min stratiuns as Chaplain, during the
campaign in the basin of Mexico, and during the occupa
tion of the city, excited the admiration and graiitude of
the whole army, should, at least, receive ilie brevet of
, Colonel.
We regpet to say that the Cholera seems-to have
broken out again in New Orleans with considerable vio
lence. It is carried up the river by steamers and manv
deaths lake place on buard. See the details io another
i column.
The lev ter writers at Washington are generally pret-y
accurate in the intimations they give of what is about to
be made public through the Washington press. Hut we
think, we observe that, since the accession of Gen. Tay
lor, they are not so well informed, of ihe secret doings 0f
the Cabinet and are not respectively the semi-official or*
gans of this or that head i f Department. Wiih respec,
to appointments, we have ceased to rely upon tin ir sour
ces of information. Willi this preliminrry remark, we
proceed to state that the Correspondent of the Baltimore
Sun intimates that Mr. Collamer is, ere long, to ex
change the Post Office Department for a F reign M:s
sion. 'The reason assigned, is that G v. Crittenden_
whom it is the cue of some to represent as the power be-,
liiud the throne—is dissatisfied that K-utnekv should
not have a Cabinet ■ fficer, and that to please him Mr.
Letcher is to he provided for. Of course, .we do not be
lieve a word of this, at lea~t sj far as the motive is in
volved. Gen. Taylor, like Gen. Jackson, may possible
find it desirable, evpn in the outset of his AJininis ration,
to remodel, in part, his Cabinet. Oi l Hickory discov
ered, in the first ten days of his Administration, that Mr.
McLean would not lend himself to the bloodv work of
pr- scription, and, therefore, shclfcit him on the Supreme
C urt,and found a fitter tool in Maj ir Barry. It is pos
sible that old Zack, by what would be a curious coinci
dence, though (ora directly opposite reason, may think
it advisable to provide a retreat for Mr. Collamer. The
New York Herald s Asmod. i.s at \\ rash11"don unroofs
the council chamber and tells us that the broad question
ot proscription, as a system, had been fully discussed tn
the Cabinet, and that the vote showed the President.
Mr. Meredith, Mr. Crawford,Mr. Prt >ston and Mr. John
son, to be against, and Messrs. Collamer and Ewing
in favor of the policy. Mr. Clayton was unavoidably ah
sent, hut is known to concur with the majority. M e
doubt the accuracy of this statement—but believe the
sentiments of the members of ihe Cabin-1 to he correctly’
giver.. We doubt not that Messrs. Cull: mer arid Ew
ing are more inclined than their colleagues to adopt th
Dem icratie policy of turning out of office all wh > are nut
of the same polities with themselves.
The correspondent of the Herald nails to the counter
a silly rumor that Mr. Ewing claimed that the heads of
bureaux and clerks,transferred to theD-nne Department,
were virtually legislated out of office by the law dea
ling the Department, and that, therefore, the appoint
ment of all Would vest in him </c not"). The writer savs

So. als I. are some of the stories told of Mr. Fillmore,
and the Pitsident, and the Cabinet.
It will b ■ recollected that, winter before last, the Leo
islaltite enlarged the capital of the Shenandoah Naviga
tion Company, and subscribed three filths of the Stock
with a view of making a lock and dam navigation from
Harper’s Ferry 11 Port Ueptihl c. The survey of the
river and estimates were entrusted in .Mr. Fisk, the En
gineer in Chid ot the Cliesapeakand Dili i Canal._
II" has discharged that duty so fir as to make an ap
pioximate estimate of the cost, which is alarming enottoh,
and quite conclusive against the improvement. With
out including the damages, necessarily grout where val
uable low grounds would he overflowed, lie thinks the
river could not be rendered navigable, at all seasons, for
boats carrying only thirty tons,for less than TWO MIL
LIONS of dollars. The length of river to he improved,
including the two branches, is ISO miles. He cnntenis
plates that, ot this distance, the improvement would he
for 05 miles by independent canal -the remainder bv
slack-water navigation, obtained by 55 dams, and 90
lucks. '1 hose who know the region i f country drained
by the river, and the varh us rivals for the trade the im
provement would encounter, will not believe with the
Engineer that the tolls would justify the outlay necessary.
However correct Mr. Fisk may be in this estimate, it is
perfectly apparent, that the money will never he raised.
1’wo millions of dollars,with the amount of land damages,
would make a Kail K iad on the banks of the river trom

“ I’he gross revenue could scarcely', to the bpst of our
knowledge, reach $50,000. The receipts uf the R an
°ke Coin party, whose works are of about the saioe
lengilt, and drain an extent ot country atoning by it
greater breadth tor interior productiveness, are only some
$14,000 annually. Ifmir impressions as to the pctsible
revenue, say $10,000 nett, or two ppr cent on two mil
lions, be near the mark, the question with the fartnersa
lung the river is reduced to the point whether or not the
enhanced value of tlieir land and produce would be suffi
cient to cover the remaining four per cent; in (filter words
whether $1,300,000 would he added to the value of
all the real estate along the river. They will we think
find it to their advantage to examine the probabilities uf
a greater gain proportionate to the outlay resulting from
a cheaper improvement, either in the hands of the’pres
ent Company, or on some such plan as that adopted in
the construction of the Rappahannock canal.—
The letter which we publish to day, from the very in
telligent and observant correspondent of the N. V. Cou
rier and Enquirer, is worthy Jf anatt-nti.e perusal.—
There were thousands and tens of thousands of our peo
ple who, having no very great confidence in the capacity
of the French people for self-government, yet ba:l d with
delight the overthrow of the Orleans dynasty and the e
rection of an extempore Republic upon its ruins, in the
hope 'hat, in someway, the great cause of popnltr filter
tv Would be advanced, and free institutions established in
connection with order. The Id tody scenes uflast sum
mer, and, above all, the election of Louis Napoleon to
the Presidency, have pretty neatly extinguished this
hope. 1 he French have no idea ofliberty and order.—
The latter is just now what they want, and for it they
are willing to postpone, or sacrifice, indeed, the former.
Republicanism is at a discount. The name of a Repub
lie may be, f.ir a while, retained. But the election of
one, as the Chief .Magistrate, who never called himself a
Republican—who had no personal merit,—and whose
claims consisted exclasivt-ly in his relationship to the
man whose mentpry is idolized by the massot the French
people, is, in itself, sufficient evidence that the- nation is
not Republican in feeling. Whether Louis Napoleon is
to be declared Emperor- or the Duke of Bordeaux, or
the Count of Paris he recalled—it matters n-1— the peo
ple, out of Paris, are almost unanimous against the Re
public. The Constituent Assembly is dissolved and the
electors, by universal suffiage, are soon to chouse another
chamber. The members u ill be “fresh from the people,”
and will be thus emboldeneJ to speak the popular senti
( merit. We shall await the meeting of the chamber with
much interest.

One of the tmist extraordinary productions of the day
is a letter.latelv addressed by Mr. Thomas C. Reynolds,
late Secretiry of the Legation ofthe rutted States at Ma
drid, to the Charleston Courier. It is too long for ottr
Colutnt s, and we despair ot giving such an abstract as
would d ■ full justice to Mr. R.’s views. Mr. Reynolds
was a citizen of Richmond, at the time ofhis appoint
ment. and was considered a young man of considerable
talent and acquirement. The b tter is elicited bv the ru
mors which prevailed, last autumn and winter, of a mo ..
nation being then in progress at Madrid for the purchase
ot Cuba, which rumors, in some wav, alluded to Mr.
Kevn his is the authority. The disclosures he makes
are just enough to tantalize. We are not quite convinced
that he has acted cirrectly in divulging what he has di
vuljed. disown conscience and sense of h nin’r. howev
er. are at rest on the stibj cl.and we have nothing to say.
lie tells us enough to show that Mr. Saunders is jmbe.
c Vand iittrlv unfit to represent his country abroad.—
This, it is trite, is no more than everv one knew when lie
was sent to Spun. He lets us know also that the re
ports were substantially true—and that the denials ofthe
Spanish Cabinet and journals were strictly technical._
He think enough is now known to require a call next
session tor copies ot Mr. Saunders’ instructions and de
spatches. II s recall will, ot course, precede any move
ment in Congress.
-'lr. Key nn da writes well, and seems lo have formed
.1 j■ isi idea of .Mr. Polk’s duplicity. lie says :
••I was aware of the fact, since made public hy Mr.
1 I. lores,of S. C. in a speech in Congress, that Mr Poll;
was in the habit of trausmit'ing dire, tlv to the C. states
i Mini-tor at London, instructions on the Oregon question.
, departing most materially from the positions taken in
j tlie i-tli *i:il correspondence of the Department of St ito*
and that on that question th- Lte President had acted
holli liis parts (of a 49 deg man and a 54 deir. 411 min.
man.) at the same time with such consummate si; II.
I.tliai even those in the secret were greatly perplexed to
know what were his real intentions. I supposed that
Mr Saunders was honored with a el .so inltmaev by Mr.
Poll;, as lie ( Mr. S.) in leply t < inquiries . tC.it-t K1 in t.
formerly liri i-lt Charge in Texas, had felt himself au
thorized lo st it" lo that gentleman, (who, as I ‘presume,
and as Mr. Saunders himself supp.s«d,carried tile infor
mation immediately to Lord Aberdeen.) that Mr. M’l.ane
possesse ', n a "higher degree lhan Mr. Buchan in,the drift
deuce ot the late President. I was aware also, that Mr.
Saunders, on his arrival in Madrid, had urg.d liis pred
ecessor, alter the presentation of his letters of recall, to
suggest t. the Spanish Minister to tender Her Catholic
Majesty’s mediation between the United States and .Mex
ico, hut the i fficial communications on the subject to the
Department of State had omitted to make any allusion
whatever to the fact, that he himself was tints the nrin
inamr of the whole subsequent proceedings in the busi
ness. I 11n-rofore felt justified in supposing that Mr.
Saunders had some authority from Mr. Poll; directly, m
11 lie premises.”
,Mr. Saunders, who spent five nr six months of his
'ime, at once, in Palis, wrote to Mr. Reynolds :
“What wll Salatnaned thiol; of the threat contained in
the I, fter of the Committee id" the Bondholders t. Istiri,.?
Is it possible lie had so little spitit as 11 receive such a
document ? As this matter is likely to he pressed on the
I Spanish (ioverument, I would write Mr li on the subject,
; had I full con fid uce in him—but as 1 have not. 1 shall
r. serve lo myself the liberty uf acting on the general in
structions—assuming the responsibility ofdoing what the
I occasion may rail for. I may, therefore, submit a pn.po
i sition to the Minister.”
‘‘Mr. li.” is meant f.r Mr. Buchanan—from which,
i and tin- recollection of Mr. Polk’s double dealing with
Mr. McLean in regard to the Oregon negotiation. Mr.
Reynolds was justified in believing that Mr. Saunders
was acting under private instructions from Mr. P..Ik,
| contrary to those which lie had from the Secretary nt
| State. When left Charge d’Afftires at the Spanish
Coift, by the pleastr.e trip of the Minister lo Parts, Mr.
Reynolds corresponded with the Department and let Mr.
Buchanan know facts which it was intended to keep from
Ids know], dge. Mr Saunders demanded his recall and
\ lie was recalled.
l lie following paragraph is amusing :
“A formal conference was solicited, to sound the dis
positions uf (ien. Narvaez. Our Envoy’s English was
diluted into French for the edification of that fiery sol
dier, in return his energelic thoughts, loro out oft heir
Castillian idiom, to he cramped up in a French dr-ss
were again done into English lor the convenience of Mr.
Saunders. This linguistic entertainment soon grew irk
some to the impatient Spaniard, and the cmifetence was
speedily but cautiously terminated. Thus ended this
eelebrati d negotiation. \\ hether it could have In en
made to read differently, had the usual weapons ofdi
plumary been employed, is a question into which [ do not
pretend to enter.”
The New York Herald states the number of vess< Is
which have left the pints of the United States for Cal -
fori.i i at 27(1, carrying 17,341 passengers. It is probable
that the tot il number of emigrants exceeds 20,000.—
1'here is n thing in the late accounts from the gold re
gion calculated t. repress the spirit of adventure. Eve.
ry fresh account would sebrn not only to corroborate all
the news we have heretofore had, but lo exalt our cun
ceptions of the extent and richness of the placers. In a
very short time we may expect to see the results of the
gold gathering in large remittances of bulli< n. The U
S. States ship Lexington, wills half a million on board,is
daily expected at New York. These tangible evidences
of the wealth of the region cannot fail to give fresh itn
pulse to emigration. Hitherto most of the gold has found
its w ay to England. \\ hat a shame that Congress did
not authorise a branch mint at San Francisco last ses
The last arrival from England shows that the fei ling
there is scarcely less than in this country. The disturb
ing influence of the news will be felt in every country of
Europe, and, at this particular juncture, when the politi
cal elements are in such'confusion, must lead to a great
emigration. \\Te have seen it stated that the French
Government has orderpd a brigade of Engineers to pro
ceed to the .Sacramento to make an exploration. This is,
to say tlie lea.-t, cool. They may find themselves under
arrest before they are aware of it. Gen. Smith is not
ihe man lube trifled with.
Maj r G. I!. Crittenden, of the Regiment of Mounted
Riflemen, was tried by a Court Martial ia Mexico (for
intemperance, we believe,; and cashiered. The sen
tence was approved by the President and carried into ef
fect. The proceedings were subsequently reviewed by
the Senate, and that body pronounced the trial and con
viction “illegal and contrary to law and that no vacancy
arose therefrom.” Mr. Polk referred the subject to the
Secretary of War, who did not take any action thereup
on, but left it-there being no patronage involved, hut
the reverse—as a legacy to his successor. Mr. Craw
lord, therefore, as in duly bound hv the action uf the
Senate, has directed the restoration uf Major Crittenden
lo his rank in the Regiment.
03- We stated not lung since that Ihe Hon. Win. Al
ton, late U. S. Senator front Ohio, and the Hon. Isaac P.
\\ alker, now a Senator from Wisconsin, received the
rudiments of their education in a Sunday School in this
place—the first, we believed, which had been organized
in the State. The Charlottesville Republican, conyitur
the paragraph, says that a lady, siill a resident of that
town, established a Sunday School there in 1816—one
year earlier than the date uf the Lynchburg School.

follow ing announcement of the appointment of Mr. Hud
son, of Massachusetts, to an office in the Bo-tun Custom
House :
“Charles Hudson, | Abo.] of Massachusetts, [whose
constituents would nut send him again lu Congress, | to

The truth is that Mr. Hudson is no Abolitionist and
