" The fifteenth birthday of the Philadelphia - Press, which took place yesterday, has i- been made the occasion of deserved com ,, pliment to that excellent paper and its distinguished editor. . We think no man in America represents . f more truly what we may call, the chivalry i of politics, than John W. Forney. He is the "Knight without fear or reproach, r worthy to wear the crest of Bayard or * Sidney's plume of snow," whoso powerful . blade, "keen as light and of subtle temper, ; has waved only to deliver innocence and to t smite the wrong." Consistent and cnthu • siastic in support of his party, he has never s surrendered his independence, or sunk his r manhood to secure place. The birth of the ', Press is a remarkable illustration of his > qualities. We well remember those dark and terri -1 ble days of '55, '56 and '57 when slavery, , reinforced by Northern allies, sought to l plant its black banners by force, upon the ' fertile plains of Kansas and Nebraska. When hordes of ruffians poured over . the Missouri border to crush out the very law which had left the question of freedom ,or slavery, to the ballot of the settlers ; ■ when the administration had recognized the votes of tliese ruffian hordes, and cowed, or purchased, by promise of Southern votes, . proposed to force a constitution upon tho . people, which organized mob violence into law, aiiil.extiiigiiisht.Ml liberty. Mr. Buch , anan had been elected, and tmder an im plied pledge to the North, that justice should bo done to Kansas. That pledge lie violated when he refused to support Gov ■ ernor Geary, and later the Governor of his own selection, Robert J. Walker, of Miss issippi, in their attempts to protect, the puri ty of the ballot and give to tho people a fair election. Col. Forney was at that time the idol of the Northern Democracy, and possessed the especial friendship of Mr. Buchanan. For him the best his triumphant party could give was waiting. The great trial hour of the administration came, and it could no longer remain neutral, in the irrepressible conflict, between slavery and freedom for a continent. Col. Forney used all his pow ers of persuasion, to put the government on the side of freedom, by granting to the peo ple of Kansas a fair vote upon their constitu tion. He was overruled, Govi Walker re called, and an attempt was made to crowd the iniquitous Lecompton constitution down the throats of the people by Federal bayo nets. Forney wavered not a moment. He went forth from tlie capitol inspired with the spirit, that shook old Indpendenco Hall in the days of '76. He established the Press, through whose columns his burning words fell on tho hearts of the people, and ran from man te man, till their echoes re turned in thunders, speaking doom to the party that had betrayed liberty. He has had his reward in the magnificent triumph of the right, which ho helped so greatly to achieve; in tho love and grati tude of a great people, whoso confidence he has fairly won; and in the success of a great journal, whose counsels are nearly always just and wise, and such as the party of which it is an organ, will iind it safe to heed. The people of the South have no more liberal, enlightened, and sincere friend than Colonel Forney, and we know that thou sands all over this sunny land will join us, in wishing long life and prosperity to him, and to the Philadelphia Press. THE NEW YORK FERRY MASSACRE. The investigation into the causes of the late explosion in New York, by which nearly a hundred lives have been lost, seems likely to end, as usual, in smoke. Being on the ground ourselves, we sought al! sources of information, and spent seve ral hours among the ruins with a party of experts. Among tliese men there are wide differences of opinion, colored no ■ doubt by differences of education and in . terest. All investigations into the action of matter under high temperatures, are necessarily attended with difficulty at best. But there is one lesson clearly taught in ' these fearful disasters, and that is, the ne cessity of more strict accountability, and more rigid inspection of material and men engaged as public carriers. We are* told that Secretary lloutwell will probe this mat ter to the bottom, and this statement opens to us at once the direction in which a re form is needed. Mr. Boutwell is thu finance minister of the government. His whole time and en ergy are required in administering that de ; partment. It is hardly possible to conceive of a more absurd distribution of functions, ' than to add to the legitimate work of his department, tho inspection of boilers and machinery used iv navigation. The safety of the public demands file immediate organi i zation of an independent bureau of engi neers, wholly removed from partisan ihSu r eiice, to whom, under the most stringent i regulations, thin most important interest | should be committed. A careless or l>nud ' ulent inspection should be made a capita' offense. Add to this a special enactment to fix liability for life and property ,upon every : officer of a company where negligence is , proved, and we shall rarely record such ac cidents in the future. "THE tIIOLEaIA. ' Tho rapid and resistless march of this terrible disease from Persia, eastward across the continent of Europe, has brought it already within striking distance of our > shores. It may come with any chance ship load of emigrants, embarked with tho germ iv their blood, waiting only tlie unfavora ble influence of ship-life to be developed into the most aggavrated form. Such has been our experience before, and every instinct of self-preservation dictated immediate saiiita- Iry inspection and preventative measures of ' the most thorough efficiency. Absolute cleanliness ol person, clothing, houses, out-buildings, and streets, must he insisted upon. Regular and abundant sleep, plain fowl, especially avoiding rich and fatty articles, and using freely, ripe fruits and vegetables, are points of great' importance. All experience proves that nothing is more fatal than the odor from privies, hog-pens, and decaying organic matter. Use dry soil in the privy abun dantly whenever the slightest odor escapes; the same in all foul places. Scatter lime in cellars and around the house once a week, and bury offal deeply in the soil. Don't delay a moment to remove every exciting cause of disease. . Avoid alcoholic drinks, for in cholera times "death lurks in the cup" more than ever. If you are ailing, don't trifle with your self by taking nostrums ; but rest and stop eating, and if you need help call in a com petent physician. With these and such other simple precautions as science and ex perience have approved, little fear need be entertained of the cholera on this side of the water. Gov. WALKER and his estimable lady returned to the city to-day. Vie are happy to state that Mrs. Walker's health is much improved, and we trust she will experience no interruption to convalescence by a re turn to Richmond. The sixty-four year old sister of Deles ciuse, the communist, is to be tried by a council of war at Versailles. Mrs. Amy Franks, of Fayette county, Pa., is ninety years old, and has 500 living descendents. The wedding trousseau of Miss Throck morton, who was married a few days since, cost $29,000 in gold. In Sweden female students are aihnitted to the universities, like male students, upon passing the regular college examination. Mrs. Robert Todd, niece of Mrs. Lincoln, died at Paris, Ky., "on the 24th. She was married only a few months since. A lady in Halifax county, Va., who, year belore last, was the mother of thn*e boys at a time, none of them living, was, week before last, the mother of four boy babies, all hearty and kicking. Mrs. Elizabeth Abel, who in her maiden days was known as Miss lialcombe, the friend of Napoleon in his latter days at St. Helena, died tliree weeks ago in England. Mary Brister is the name of a thirteen year old girl in Pennington, N. J., who is arrested on a charge of murdering four in fants who, during the last two years, have been in her charge. The New Haven lady who married Cap tain Louis de (Jechner Wotjkiewicz had the ceremony performed at the American Le gation aud in church, in order tv get familiar with the pronunciation of the complicated captain's name. Now they have an enamelled woman at the Branch. She doesn't go in bathing, not tliat the enamel wouldn't wash, but be cause it would wash too much. It now appears to be among modern fash ions to have one's daughters educated at a convent, and next winter we are promised an unusually large number of those in teresting occasions known as "taking the veil." Prince Arthur, forgetting all the promises he made in Montreal, lias offered himself a matrimonial sacrifice to lady Rosamond Churchill, daughter of the Duke of Marlborough. Brigham Young's seventieth birthday ar rived lately, and his wives and children gave him a surprise party, all assembling m a hall and inviting him to dinner.

Xew Arrival of Papers, Books, tfc. — We are in receipt, this evening, from those . princes of newsdealers, at No. 91S Main • street, who are ever mindful of the wants : of the poor typos, of Appletons' Illustrated Journal, No. 124 ; Chimney Corner, the ( ever-welcome illustrated paper; Harpers' } Bazar, replete with fashions of the latest ' style; New York Ledger, New York , AVoekly, Fireside Companion, Saturday i Night, and a host of other papers too nu- i merous to mention. The August numbers of magazines are also to be found on their counter, with an endless variety of new novels. The latest one we call especial at- . teTition to—"A Terrible Temptation," by ! Charles Reade—which serial has beea run- j ning for several weeks back in Harpers' < Weekly and other illustrated papers. If you wish to secure this novel, or anything . else readable, be sure to call on Johnston .t Selden, 9IN Main street. Attempted Burglary.—Between 12 and 1 . o'clock last night a daring burglar attempt ed to force an entrance into a dwelling-house i on Jackson street, above Adams. His ', efforts to raise a back window aroused the inmates, and the cries of the ladies of the . house from the front windows for a police- . man induced him to beat a hasty retreat i without accomplishing his designs. If he will call again he may have a warm recep tion extended to him, free of cost. The Dog versus the Alligator. —ln speak- J ing of the alligator owned by Mr. Euker, we stated he had swallowed a favorite dog owned by Mr. Euker. Since then, Mr. E. , has informed us there was a desperate fight ! between the two, but that if we will insist ! upon either of them Deing swallowed, he , prefers it should be the alligator. We re- ! spect his wishes, and now say that it was the dog swallowed the alligator, and not the . alligator the dog, as we first stated. We ' wish it otherwise ourselves, as we cannot , concede that alligatoi s are greater nuisances • than dogs; and if the one owned by Mr. Euker has a weakness for dogs, and a ca- , pacity for swallowing them, we would be obliged to him to turn his "gator" loose, and let him go to work on our streets. The matter is so mixed we are unable to ', decide which is which, but if our readers have a desire to know the truth, it can be i obtained from Mr. Euker upon application, j -»- Look Before you Leap. —lf Andrew Tinsley, the colored man, who was yester- j day arrested upon a warrant obtained by Robert. B. Crow, charging him with rob bery of tjtllM, had, instead of going his way \ rejoicing, instituted a suit against Mr. j Crow, for damages for false imprisonment, , he would have made his crowship suffer i for his hasty action, provided, he is respon- ! sible. We give Andrew Tinsley the infor mation in order that he may avail himself , of his rights if he wishes. Xot True. —A correspondent of the Nor- ' folk Journal, writing from Richmond, does : not tell the truth when he says that we have been industriously striving to cast sus picion upon C. R. Roes in connection with the late fire which destroyed his gallery.— We do not propose to correct several mis statements of the same letter, but simply to place ourselves right. We said nothing about Mr. Rees, but charged that a man was seen to enter the door, with a key, leading to the room occupied by Mr. Rees, and that we believed the fire was the work of an incendiary, and that the man who en tered the door that night was tlie incendiary. If the writer's object be to create sympa thy for Mr. Rees, at our expense, he has signally failed. Pythian Excursionists. —About one hun dred and fifty Pythians, comprising dele gations from the various Lodges in this city, under the charge of Mr. Wm. H. Cardoza, as chief marshal, left Richmond on the "2:35 P. M" train yesterday for Petersburg. The Knights all appeared in the apron regalia of the Order, and, as they marched up Main street headed by Smith's brass band, presented a fine appearance. The party, upon their arrival in Petersburg, were received and entertained by Ruth Lodge at their lx)dge-room, and in the evening were to attend a "hop" at Jarratt's Hotel, where we doubt not they enjoyed a most agreeable evening. The excursionists returned this morning on the 5 o'clock train.

Our Police Court — lts Proceedings this Morning—An Array of Veiled Beauties — A Wife-Beater Wlto Games the Brule in his Face — J'he Green Eyed Monster. — What this court lacked iii quantity this ; morning, was made up by the quality of those who were present interested in its proceedings. \ The "Jestis" looked fresh and fine, as if he had slept easy and quiet, despite the ef forts of "S" to defame him. • Sergeant Chalkley was all smiles for those I around, except for us, whom, he imagines, 1 have disturbed his hitherto quiet repose on < his favorite seat. We, at a glance, disoov- '■ cred the cause —it was owing to the exhibi tion of so much finery, indicative of numer- I ous tines and plenty of money with which to meet them. Alas for human caleula- I tions ! Richardson, the clerk, who never smole I a smile, was as sedate as usual, while the ' immense array of counsel sat bewildered 1 with the flattering prospects of gathering a few of Mr. Lincoln's photographs. 'I he * detectives and policemen were there in in numerable quantities, all seemingly anxious ' to show off their blue coats and glittering t buttons, freshly brightened, in anticipation of the presence of a number of beautiful I young ladies. On entering the louzy, filthy, chinchy es tablishment, kept so by a costive City 1 Council, our eyes fell upon quite a number 1 of closely veiled females, representing all i ages, and whose dress represented distinctly I all colors of the rainbow. So closely were they veiled, we dare not express an opinion i as to their beauty, but all of them exhibit- ■ ed a weakness for kid slippers with shining i buckles, which mischievously peeped out ] from beneath their skirts. ( The first case called was that of C. W. t Tyler, who was charged with having a i more than natural affection for M. W. Al- i ley's "dorg." It was proven the dorg was a worthless cuss, unable to pay his taxes — a long, lean, lank hound, better suited for the nitre-bed; but as Mr. Alley was de votedly attached to him, the "Jestis" re- I spected his love for the animal, and gave i him in charge of his lawful owner. i The important case which hail caused l the presence of so many beautiful ladies, I was that of Mrs. I.ouisa Griffin, charged t with assaulting, beating, maltreating, and t abusing Martha J. ltoe. Martha had for < some time occupied the position of servant I in the household of Mrs. Griffin, who | imagined she discovered in Martha a weak- l ness for her liege lord, Mr. Griffin, whom f she supposed was similarly affected towards i Martha. Prompted by the green-eyed < monster, she determined to settle the mat- I ter by giving Martha a good sound thrash- I ing, and then, should she refuse to renounce I her allegiance, she would be revenged by « depriving her of mortal existence. l Numerous witnesses were called and ex- i amined, some of whom were emphatic in I the declaration that Mrs. G. had beat Miss Martha, and that when Mr. (J. attempted t to quell the disturbance, even he came in \ for his share of a jealous woman's fury. ( Mrs. G. even went so far as to declare t she would shoot both Griffin and Martha, 1 and then marry a car driver, as some lady across the street had done. Good gracious ! 1 After a patient hearing of the evidence, 1 and listening to an amount of talk such as i only a woman can furnish, the Justice lined i Mrs. Griffin $2.50 and bound her to keep the peace in the sum of $300. . Mrs. Griffin's appearance was that of a , mild, modest lady, too attractive in her per- j son, to be jealous of so small and unattrac- ( tive an individual as the plaintiff. Who , could be deceived though after the eloquent > and learned argument of friend Moise, coun- , sel for Miss Martha. He exhibited his client in the light of a wronged and injured young . female, against whose'eharacter no breath of J suspicion had e'er blown. The house was '. deluged with tears as he pictured her sor- ' rows and wrongs—there were no dry eyes, save those of the savage policemen who never feci for anything or shed a tear of ' sorrow, except when a political change of > municipal administration occurs. i Col. Carrington, the counsel for the de- ' fence, in spite of his acknowledged abilitj' and legal learning, was unable to make any impression upon the minds of the assem bled. The word "guilty" was bound to ' follow the flowing eloquence of the counsel for the prosecution. ) At the conclusion of this interesting case Elzey Payne, a flat-headed, grizzly-faced, crop-haired, snaggle-toothed, cat-eyed, dir ty looking creature, was called from the en- ' close of honor to answer the charge of : beating his wife. Mrs. Payne, an un healthy looking woman, wearing upon her fuce the marks of honesty, came 'inward . and testified that her husband was a worth less, drunken orate, and that he seldom ' gave her anytliing to eat. His daughter, possessing some intelligence, disliked to ' speak against her father, but declared that ! his treatment of her mother was such she ' must tell the truth. Detective Dan Wren ! knew him as the habitual beater of his . wife, and that he liad seen him whip her j while her six weeks-old baby was in her ; arms. Payne has been up before the Jus- | tice a half dozen times upon the same ' charge, and when last let off requested him if brought up again to send him to jail and the cham-gang. After the evidence was heard, the Jus- J tice reminded Payne of his request and in formed him of his willingness to grant his j request unless he could find security for his behavior for six months. Payne could ' not comply, whereupon, he was ordered to ', the chain gang for that length of time. . We think a special gang, for all such brutes should be formed at once, and from late accounts, this city, aided by Norfolk ' and Petersburg, quite a crowd of them could soon be gathered. ( Payne's case closed the proceedings this ( morning, leaving the sergeant in an ill hu mor and the lawyers disappointed at the scarcity of fees. ' .». i A Xoble Soldier Gone. —Augustus Harry, i who received a medal of honor for devoted i services to his country from tlie United , States Congress, died yestenlay afternoon at his residence at Cold Harbor. For some time Mr. Harry has held the position of superintendent of the national cemetery at Cold Harbor, where, by his ' courteous conduct, he won the esteem of many persons. The country, by his death, has lost one of its noblest defenders and most devoted ad mirers. Amid the clash of arms, and where shot and shell flew thickest, Augustus Har ry was found foremost in the ranks to de fend his country's flag. His companions iv arms will unite with us in regretting the untimcty end of so noble a hero and so brave a man. Peace to hi* ashes. Won't Do It. — We don't care much, if those whose business it is, won't cut the grass on tlie square. Wo have called their attention to it several times, and they don't seem to mind what we say any more than if we pelted them with grass. We have tried kind words and gentle means long enough to satisfy m that they do no good" Look out next time for stones. Local Xotes. —-A youthful colored cou ple, whose united ages summed up a bun- i dred and forty summers, were joined in the holy bonds of wedlock at Ebenezer colored church last night. The blush of youthful ( love and beauty surmounted the cheek of J both bride and groom, while, the worthy pastor rejoiced tliat he had given so much happiness to the youthful pair. . A picture of General Lee was sold to- , day at Cook's auction house for the sum of twenty cents, and bought by a colored man. How is this compared with the re cent sale of the United States flag for J $1.75 ? About even, hain't it ? The policemen who was drunk yesterday sends us word it is none, of our business, f we dind't elect him and ain't got anything to do with him. An humble painter of this city was con- . siderably elevated the other day while at i work on the Second Baptist church stee ple. Republican City Central committee meets . to-night at their rooms.

If the sequestered nook is not in llenrieeo, we will be pleased to be on hand and make a full report; but we certainly can't go in that county. The -prize fight ') effectually quenched our thirst for enter prise in that direction. As is always the r) case, a beautiful lady is at the bottom of the affair. We hope to be able to give our readers full particulars as soon as possible after the affair is ended. c Manchester New* nnd (losaip. liepublican Meeting. —ljist night, at the ' time appointed, the meeting was called to order, and Senator Martin called to the s chair antj James R. Monroe appointed sec retary. The meeting was attended by all j shades, colors and condition in life, as well J as politics. Mr. G. R. Hauling wasjcalled, * who addressed the meeting on the subject of labor reform. He drew a line between r the political parties and the working man's ' party—gave a short illustration of the work- * mgs of both parties, and said there was but ' two, the Democratic and the Republican ; ! urged upon the mechanics and men of labor " to look to their interests and to the party 1 that had done the greatest amount of good for them, and give their support to the men c that would continue the advancement of the c condition of the working man, by education, c relief of taxes and many other things that t is essential for the prosperity of the coun- o try. li Major W. F. WorthingUm then addressed c the assemblage in a very able speech, in which the policy of the administration, tbe acts of the last Legislature, and the opprcs- | sive taxes imposed by the Board of Trus- . tees of Manchester were fully reviewed. .j Mr. E. S. Haw then followed in behalf of t the L'ibor Cooperating company, of which j he was president; and his statements were , indorsed liy Mr. Johnson, after which the .j meeting adjourned. . Adultery. —David Carrington, colored, t aud Leroy Jenkins, white, were arrested t yesterday, for adultery.

Beti/iiig a Woman. —Henry Turner, col- i ored, has been arrested by ('(instable Mun roe, for beating an old colored woman with a rock. The parties live seven miles from Manchester. Old Foes in a New Fight.—Here s j a voice from Alabama, which rings like the 1 blast of a rebel bugle sunnnoning the co- J horts of secession lo a charge on the Union lines : We are now entering upon a political . campaign that is full of the auguries of vie- * tory. It is our own fault if the friends of c the constitution do not win and deserve to " wear its blessings and its honors. It can v never be won by men who are eternally . blubbering over ruin and hopeless defeat, j and crying out "it is of no use to struggle, we are conquered, all is lost." The battle of liberty is never lost, except to people who do not deserve il. To our own race it | has never been lost, because our blood has ' never given it up under storm or adversity. ° If there ever was a people who were beaten a in the field, but uneonquered in soul, it is the peopleoftlieSoi.ih. They have shown a fortitude, a constancy, and a courage in p adversity that shines brightly in the com- I parison witli their deeds in the field. j. They have as manfully accepted the situ ation as they fought to avert it. They have exhibited a patience in endurance to which there is no parallel in history. And yet no v rack of insult, no tortue of tyranny has ' been able to extract from their suffering lips 5 one syllable of retraction of the right aud • duty that inspired them to take arms. They submit to the law of the victor, but they would die before confessing that they 1 hail been guilty of the crimes of 'rebels' J and 'traitors'." . We can fancy, while reading Ihe above, that vie sec the stars and bars saucily flying , and flapping in the breeze. That banner I may do very well to infuse enthusiasm into the Southern heart, but will not prove an attractive symbol to the men who were ac customed to catch their glimpses of itle tween whizzing bullets and amid the smoke < of gunpowder. i Miss Lina Kdwin has very little cause to ' thank the people of New York for a i generours support of her efforts to please them. She struggled bravely against adverse fate all last Winter, but finally was , obliged to succumb. She is now residing at her estate in Virginia, making arrange- ' ments for another season, when she will < again endeavor to enlist the good-will of the public in her favor. rpHE SOUTHERN ASSOOIATION.-RAI- X ELE for llie Benefit ot the Widows ami Or phans of the southern States.
