The Jnnu a Iliv.r auil kiaaulia Company.
T.,c bili li t tl relief of the James River auil Kana
wha Company, and for the prosecution of the great
work under their charge, passed the Hotise of Delegates
Friday, by the decisive vote of si ayes to 1 noes, and
now awaits the action of the Senate. The bill w as verv
thoroughly diecussed, and underwent a slight modifica
tion. in the Lower House. We sincerely trust that the
I ivor bestowed on it in the vote of that body, betoken
a >:mi!ar disposition on the part of the Senate, at d that
we shall have the pleasure, in a day or two, of announc
ing its final passage. We cannot donbt that the effect ot
the measure would be to give new life to tLe company,
n J to send forward, bv an important advance, toward
I'i ultimate destination, thus, tbe greatest enterprise in
wp. ,-a Virginia ha- ever been engaged—and this wi’h
Oiiiv an immaterial aduitien to the public debt.
The main provisions of the bill are as follows The
cap.ui stock of he company is increased to #12.400,«••*<>.
i.l «• 'ires o! si"-* e.ioh. Of this the Stu’e is to take, ii.
a Union to the stock already owued by her. 74.""" share-,
wnereof 7-""" - urea shall be taken in full satUfactio:
of the d !>! now due from the company to the State, an>
for the assumption bv the Suite of the debt for which it
is bound as sun ty for tbe company. For the remaining
g " shares ot stock the bonds of the State tor ■
arc t be delivered to the company,to be applied to tbe ex
tinguishment ot the r (looting debt. In addition, the eom
p.i- <t are attthoriced to borrow the sum of j -t.500,"'*0,ai a
rate of iut* nst not exceeding sevcu per cent., for tin
purt-'M- of completing the canal to Covington, carryin'
t' . .r other works and discharging the residue ot tht
floating debt, and to execute bonds for the amount bor
rowed, and deeds of trust or mortgage*, pledging th r
wor- - ■ ' eveuues for the pay ol
same: provided. That they shall not borrow in any one
var a greater amount than five hundred thousand dol
lars. To meet these bond* when they fall due, the com
jianv are to set apart on the 1-’ ot January ami July ot
ever’ year one p r cent. a- a -m ,’ngluuil. flu1 State -
I !y to t..’gome liable IS at Stockholder. Another clause
ot the bill u-N-ietis three hundred thou-and dollar* of the
six per cent, registered stock of the Commonwealth, pro
vided for under the act <>f 1*0-.. to be u*ed in improving
the navigation of the Kannwtia river, from it* mouth t»
Loup tr- ek -hoals. A number of other clause* provide
details a: I g .rds for making the bgi-lation eflectiteauti
k cure. Our p-e-er.t purpose i* only to give the reader
a general itlen of the bill, and to express an approval of
it. SI. udd it pa * the S- uate, a* we cannot doubt it will,

BV JOHN &. THOJir.-iA'.
The idler in London, strolling along Piccadilly in the
direction ot Hyde Park, will he slmcV with the pompous
old gatewuv, through which he may- cutch a glimpse of
greensward and waving trees. Before this gateway
.(and- a beadle, a most ancient beadle, bolding a staff
surmounted with a silver knob and dressed I the beadle
and not the staff,) iu a drab overcoat with a bewildering
superfluity of capes. This functionary guards the en
trance to what is known as the •’Albany"—a bachelor
retreat hid awav from the great vvoijd ol the metropo
lis beneath the bows of-the spreading elms and—"the
cold shade of the aristocracy." The Albany Is a sort ol
rusurb. ii street, which is no thoroughfare, (being closed
both to vehicles and the crowd of pedestrians) extending
from Piccadilly to Burlington Burdens, and built up on
either tide wilh tall, dingy brick houses which are derig
tinted bv the letters ot the alphabet. In front ol
each house a small garden eoibes close up to
the straight, shady path, leading to a gateway
at the other extremity, similar iu all *espocts, the lolly
pillars, the elaborate irou work, the cjffaint stone card g,
and the corpulent, sotnnulous, cujie-euc'icled beadle, with
silver-headed stfff, to that before mentioned. The rooms
iu the several buildings are numbered, and are Occupied
by single gentlemen, of-high social po«ttou mostly, and
in easy circumstances, officers ot the Aviuy ami Navy on
half pry, successlul authors, retired professional men,
anil unmarried sprigs ol nobilily. The atmosphere ol
the place is that of well-bred repose. Trade disturbs not
the t[uiei of the Albany,the rattling of whe.l-ia but faintly
heard trom the adjoining street, un i tie musical gabble
of t«m .le voices breaks not upon the gar, for crinoline
sweeps Lot along the cool, narrow avenue. It is in some
m« a lire a passport to society to iuhabi* a room there,
and a card bearin i the address of
would be considered at the clubs as “ nobby” and else
where ns reaching the filial term of the gouteel.
I -hail not soon forget the Albauy and its loliage. for
one fine June morning iu the your 1&5-J I turned from
the whirl of Piccadilly, ascend d the stairway of one ol
the tliugj old bui dings, and enjoyed the .pleasure ol an
iuterview with tho occupant ol It. 11—Thomas Bailing
ton Macaulay. I do not rpeak of him as Lord
Macaulnv, for at that time ho was not w peer of the
realm, he bad not been “created" by his sovereign, but
■the patent trom Heaven was his, aud he stood couspieu
,nis -,a the ranks of a higher peerage, a more illustrious
noLihtv. Voltaire told Congreve that had he been only
,i cntl'cniati, be (Voltaire) snould have nev-r com-- tosee
bin, and ii is certain that had Macaulay be. u only a Lord
ot VictotiiVs making, the world would not have so la
mented his recent death. Assuredly I shoul 1 have tell
tar les« uncomfortable had I been about to enter the
pi . , ■ ol i ic Prime Mini-ter iu Downing street, than I
did in mounting n p the staircase to D. it. lor apart
ft mi tii- imiit'-n- • iespect tor Ins iuicllectttul character,
which I hail derived from his writings, 1 had somehow
l -aru .! to -eg ird M i .-uulav with an uudetined drea 1 of
admiration as one who, though belonging to the .Nine
teenth Century, must have di-coursed with Socrates in
person, aid sat with Bncou as ho unfolded tbc
u-atiing of the Xuvtmt Organum, and rode over
the Buckingham diire vvoliD with Hampden, mid
heard an Ode of l’indat rolling from Mil ou's lip-,
and who ha 1 thus invested himself with something of the
awe which we attach to the-' august names. Moreover,
I remembered, among my curliest readings the great re
view. r, furtively carried on in the college lecture-room,
the terrible criticism of Mr. Robert Montgomery, and it
occ irre 11.> me that such a man mini read every visitor
through aud through in live minutes, exposing the shal
lowm-sol Ins learning to bis own nuiniiiuieu sen. n
seemed to mens il I were about lo be annihilated by the
mere presence of a supoiior power, Perhaps Mr. Van
Amburgli nwy, at times, have experienced a feeling akin
to this. Bat why enter the lion’s deni' W a»s it a vul
gar curiositv, a sillv vanity to say 1 had .-ten Macaulay
that led me to the Albany ? 1 trust not. Only a very lo >1
i-h and insensible per-on visits Westminster Abbey sim
ple to say he has been there. I had inti . d a curiosity
to’see tli • in in who had allordcd inc -o much gratiBca
tio: . but 1 wished also to watch the play o! that great
intellect in conversation, aud to hear a colloquial elo

personal attention. But immediately on receiving my
card, he bade the servant show me to his sklmg-room,
and I was greeted with a kindly siiake of the hand—the
I'ji’.s pan was all velvet—ami with thanks for the vol

tairs, the historian made many inquiries concerning lite

had made with the deepest interest—that he distrusted
he -uecess ol republican institutions beyond a certain
density of population, more particularly under the
operation of universal sutfrage, but no one would re
joice more than he to entertain ditT rent views ;—ad
verting to the relations between (treat Britain and
this countrv, he said ho could imagine no condition
of things in which war should no: be averted by the wis
dom aud prudence of our leading statesmen, but that he
thought tli.-rc vvere many li.-s of iatere-t mid sympathy
that ought to be more closely drawn, among which w.is

of antithesis very much. There was no redundance of
ornament, no parade of learning. The d-lf-renco be

that between looking on ut au imposing pro -ession, on
some gr.-at ocea-.uu ot state, in which all the figures suc
ceeded each other in due oi ler and according to their
proper dignity and mingling in the miscellaneous ranks
ot a holiday crowd, where a con i uuul su • '-sion of ima

What iuiprt.s-i d me must in Macaulay’s manner was
Li* s'tni-iicity. Everything he -aid was natural, and his
inovt ineu', wt.li n w»:ru whohv i studied, v/ould have
seemed ea-v but lor ail angularity, bordering 011 awk
wartlue83, that belongs to his countrymen. Iq person,

- iirt collars were nuly raeujorable. The sit ting-room in
which he received me, was fitted up as a library, and the
shelves, which reached quite to the ceiling, might have
contained front eight to ten thousand volumes. The
books were rich in calf and morocco bindings, such as a
man ot Macaulay’s taste,and bis ability to gratify it would
be apt to indulge himself with.
At this time (dune, 1854) it was h's custom to spend
three or four hours a day in the British Museum, collect
it.. t!;e materials for the prosecution of his great work,
aud even writiuu out portions of it, in a room full of lit
erary men eng tged 111 similar tint Is-s m pendant labors.
visiting the Museum, I »> shown the table be oc
cupied, piled sound knee deep with pond-’rous folios,
bound volumes ot old newspaper., sttil other venerable
records of the past. But though his mornings ware thus
employed, he did t ot fail in his attendance on Park unent
where lie then sat for the city of Edinburgh. Perhaps
the combination, uot conflict, of his literary and public
duties, together with the exactions of society, tended to
ha-ten the crisis of the maladv to which, while yet in the
prune ol his vigorous intellect, lie fell a victim.
I never saw Maoaulay afterwards, but I heard much
said of him by English people, and 1 am convinced that
his character was not rightly understood by them. He
passed for a cold and selfish man with the multitude,
while those whose knew him best declared that a kinder
heart never beat in a human frame. Pnnrh jolted him,
now and then, abou; his having dated a letter once from
“Windsor Cas h*," while a guest of her Majesty.* liberty
to Eugiisiiine,. un-ithomabl * and unpardonable,—the
I^iumi-, just y aggrieved Ly his i.istorlc treatment of
Wi'.hani l'enn, h* Id him in great disfavor; aud clever,fast
literarv men of Bohemia, from whom he kept aloof, pa
ro lied ht< “lavs” with great effect; but the bachelor, in
his snug apartments in the Albanv, paid little attention
to their attacss, and went oa writing those magnificent
uud tremendous sentences which were to stir the pulses
of the Anglo Saxon race long alter he should be com
mitted to mo mier: “ and res: of the Abbey. If he had
resentments he did r.&i enLUhiu iiU .tUriita by disclosing
them. It is worthy of remark that no breath of scandal
ever imputed an immoral life to Macaulay. Insensible to
woman’s beauty he certainly was not, and yet the gossip
of London, wholly unspnrring ol great names, left him
as unassailed as W ilitarti Pitt.

She likewi.se brings somewhat Inter news from Vera Cruz,
taken down to Minatitlan by the Mexican war steamer
iriiee, as abo later advices overland from the interior.
Of the whereabouts of Miramon wc liave no further
mention. It is only stated that he hail issued a procla
mation ordering the submission and evaluation of Vera
(Ituz “ within the .-pace of four dats." This news was
taken down bv the Haw on the 11th, and leaves u* to J
suppose that a portion of the expedition, as before ru
mored, had already arrived in the vicinity of Vera Cruz
The proclamation, like that of last vear, is probably da
ted at -lalapa or some other point on the road, whence
it found ihs way into the city.
In the meantime the mo-t active preparations contin
ue, both at Alvarado and Vera Cruz for putting those
cities in the best state of defence. Among other things,
the fort at the mouth of the Coalzacoalcos had been dis
mantled, and the guns, ammunition, \ all taken up
to Alrarudo, for the double purpose of preventing tli.-ir
falling into the hands of the enemy, and strengthening
j the defences of the latter city.
The natives all along the coast, and especially at Min
atitlau, had also been impressed into serviee.nmj forcibly
taken off to man these fortifications. In the meantime
disturbances, originating in the same spirit of livil di -
cord, had been renewed at Acayucam, and other place*
o i the Isthmus, anil threatened, as in the interior of the
Republic, to break out into open war.

M inxtiti.an, February.
Political ntViirs in this ftentiblic I nci-d not SMv look
gloomy. .Miruinon ii in posse-sion of nearly the whole
country, except tho Atlantic porta and M izulan and Aca
pulco on the Pacific. Juarez is still in possession of
Tampico, Vera Cruz, Alvarado and Minalitlan, but i.s
sorely pressed on every side.
Here, at Minalitlan, we fora long time momentarily
expected a nmnnwimnento in favor of Mi Ramon, and
with it the seizure of the American prop rty aud the as
sassination of American citizens; Intt, thanks to the
prompt action of Mr. McLanh, we now feel secure. No
sooner did he leant of these revolutionary schemes than
he ut once asked and obtained the consent ot the Juarez
Government to send down some twenty men, undercoat
inand of Lieut. Cro- iiv, of the sloop of-w.tr Saratoga.—
They arrived here in the steamer H'nr, on the gat It ult,
when the river steamer Minalitlan was kindly placed at
their disposal by Messrs. W'ki.cii aud Ai.i.kn.
The authorities of the port and vicinity, who had been
planning a change of Government some time before,
were visibly excited by the arrival of Lieut. Caostiv ; in
fact, tried to stir up the people toattucls thest -amer .!//«
atithin hut in tain. Tiie prudent andjudicious, though lirm
and determined course followed bv Lieut. Crosuy, gave
•Item no opportunity. It must he said, to the credit of
this gentleman, that he was placed in a very delicate pi
-itiou, where firmness and sound judgment were requir
ed. A single mitstep on his part would have brought
about an open war.
As before said, the authorities wished for a disturb
ance; even tho Governor went -o far as to demand Iroiu
the Oon-ul an explanation, by wh.t right American
troops had been sent here. He received, a> answer, that
t le I'nited States of America had the right to send their
men-of-war to any jitrt of the globe where they lad
fellow-countrymen to protect. Subsequently Lieut. Cros
by called on the Governor to pay his respects to him ;
when he, the Governor, said he did not know if he should
permit him, Cro-by, to remain. Crosby replied that he
was sent here for the protection of American interests,
and that he should undoubtedly remain until recalled by
tho proper authority.
Subsequently a meeting w.-.acalled,at which only Mexi
cans were permitted to be present, to take the matter in
to consideration. The Governor and Prefect were both
of the number, and submitted the following propositions :
1. Shall the American troops he considered friends and
allies or enemies *
2. Shall they be attacked and driven from the coun
try, or,
:i. Shall they be treated politely, but coldly ?
The discus-ion was long, heated, and acrimonious.
Finally, after four hour’s deliberation, it was decided
that the Americans, iu the port ut Mi.i tlitl.cn, he treated
coldly, hut politely, uutil sufficient force be obtained to
drive them out.

linen, shaved, ahampooned h - head, eat his breakfast, .
picked a lew articles in a satchel, kissed his wife und
-lid: “ Hv-bv, my dear ; Pin going to iietruit, and 1
shan’t he back till to-morrow niglil,” and oil'lie went.—
Hut he diil'nt go to ih-iroit. II** went to the barn, and
lay in wait like a dog iu a manger, till eventide came.—
lie then got a better location, and watched the house
that held hit treasure. Soon alter dark, a tine looking
man. a nroininetit Republican politician, an eminent ills
penser ui piii-i and purges, a visitor ot the nick mid woun
ded, walked quietly to the gate—walked to the front
door, tapped «>«••, - ittly on it, walked into the parlor and
sat down. The husband being a jealous man, effected an
entrance into the kitchen with a derringer in one hand
and a revolver in the other, lie got under his wife’s bed
very quietly. lie lay still and waited—but not long.—
Soon the wife entered—the eminent physician accompa
nied her—it was dark out—the walking was not good,
the Doctor’s health was poor, lie dated not go out in the
night air, and he, unlike Vlt. Joseph of old, tarried there
to protect the fair woman w hose husband was in Detroit.
The husband under the bed could stand it no longer.
He lay there on his back and his spirit waxed wtoth ;
very tremendous was his inwartl profaning, aud all of a
sudden, to the great astonishment of tho people in the
bed, just over his head, "pop, pop pop, pop, pap, pop,
pop,” went seven little pill- up among the occupants ot
the marriage couch I There was a mule and a female
scream, each differing from the other in agony and a
loiii-htnent. There was (lowing nlood front masculine
geuder, und a voice, the voice of au eminent IL-publican
physician and surgeon, was heard to sing in terrible
• A {.harms to keep i have,'*
and lie kept it, till another surgeon extracted four little
pi tol balls out of six from lire Meshy part of the eminent
Fur some time it seems the fairy, rosy cheeked wife
had been like tbe "balloon frame" houses of Wisconsin
—rather frail, and it is reported that five or six other
gentlemen ot l’ort Huron were rather gratilie I than
otherwise that the eminent physician got the start of
them, this time at least. When our inlormant left, it was
doubtful w hether the doctor would recover or not.
The Xew Orleans Picayuttc says : “ We have accounts
of terrible outrages aud wholesale depredations commit
ted in Chihuahua, by a robber chieftain, who is more lor
midable to the peacef ul citizens than Cort nas has been to
tbe inhabitants of tbe Rio Grande. Some account of his
action has been given to us through the medium of the
telegraph. The details arc a bloody history of savage
ferocity, which cannot but convince our government that
measures of a decided character must be taken to pro
tect the Texan bottler. There is more than one Cortina
afoot. On the capture of the mining town of Parral, ni
ts r the defeat of tho Mayor of the city in the battle of
which we have before made meution, the following atro
cities were committed. American citizens, as will be
seen not meeting with any protection :
The band of robbers under command of Captain Cojin,
the robber chief alluded to, by a forced loan, took Iroiq
the citizens of the place $40,000; also at the city of El
Valle they took $5,000. They then resumed their march,
committing the most atrocious cruelties as they passed
through the country on their way to Chihuahua. A panic
pervaded that city, and ail foreigners aud wealthy Mexi
cans have abandoned their homes and gone either to
Presidio del Norte or to El Paso. At Parral and at El
Valle, defenceless females, married and single, were torn
from their homes and taken to the quarters of the troop
—where, after being defiled in the most iuhumau manner,
they were turned loose in the streets. In some families,
consisting of several females, some were taken with the
marauders oti their march, aud others left behind in tbe
most distracted state of mind. One beautiful woman of
a wealthy family, a newly-made bride, was dragged from
her husband’s side, and forced into the embrace of the
villain Cojin. The American and foreign citizens of Chi
huahua ou leaving, hardly had time to take their chattels
with them, aud even now may have been taken and mas
sacred. Such arq about the particulars as we deiive
them frqtu »n eminent merchant doing business in Chi
huahua, und who is largely interested iu the silver mines
of the country.”
