NEWS BY THE NIAGARA This news is of great importance to the mer cantile community, ipatmuch as it indicates an improvement in the markets both for cotton and breadstuff, and imports that money is more plentiful than it has been for many years.— j Consols have gone up nearly to par, a thing that has not happened for many years. The London Times, of the 16th ult., passes a high encomium upon the New York clipper abip Witch of the Wave, which had made the run from Canton to the Downs in ninety days, ■with a cargo of great value. She lay in the East India Docks, at London, where she was daily visited by great numbers of persons.— Her performance had created most intense excitement, on excitement which was indeed almost national. This affords another proof, if another were wanting, of the deep interest which the English take iq the progress of our marine,commercial as wfll as war. The political news is of little interest, save in so far as it is said that the Emperor of Rus sia has proclaimed the Due de Chambord the successor of Louis Napoleon, under the title of King Henry V. He may proclaim until doomsday, but it is not in his power to fasten upon France, the most powerful military na tion on earth—a nation fully competent to meet all Europe in arms, provided only she ■toy at borne—the detested and all-detestable family of Bourbon ; that family, of whom Na poleon said, on their restoration, "lis n'ont rien appris, rien oublie,'' "they have learned noth ing, and forgotten nothing." A race so utterly incapable of profiting by experience, as they have shown themselves to be, cannot be sus tained upon the throne of France by all the bayonets of all the despots in Europe. In the mean time, it makes the blood of a republican boil, to hear a despot at one end of Europe, prescribing to forty million of human beings, over whom he has no 6ort of control, at the other, the manner in which it pleases him that they shall be governed. THE AGE OF GOLD. The New York Herald publishes a statisti cal article from a gentleman connected with the Treasury Department, with respect to the sup ply of the precious metals afforded to the world, since the discovery of America in 1492. From that document, we learn that Humboldt, Ja cobs, McCullock and others, have made the following estimate: Ist—Humboldt's estimate, $5,447,900,000 McCullock's do. . 350,000,000 Jacob's do. . 403,603,800 McCullock's do. . t76,330,000 Total (America) . $6,877,833,800 2d—Humboldt's estimate of the annual production (1803) of Hungary, Saxony and North ern Asia, is $5,000,000; and without any means of ascer taining the productions of pre vious years, let that be taken as the average from 1492 to 1802, inclusive, say . $1,555,000,000 To which add the estimates of the same mines by McCullock for 50 years . . . 200,000,000 Total (Europe and Asia) $1,755,000,000 3d—The product of the gold mines of Russia, according to McCullock, was, up to 1852, 191,581,000 And of the silver by the same author to 1852 . . . 22,000,000 Total (Russia alone) . $213,581,000 4th—The product of the United States other than California, ' being, by the mint returns, $15,855,000, add $1,145,000 for an estimate of the amounts not brought to the Mint, and the result iS . . . $17,000,000 To which add the actual and estimated produie of Califor nia , 150,000,000- Total (United States) . $167,000,000 General Total . . . $9,013,414,800 Humboldt's estimate extended to 1803. Mighty as these sums appear to be, they are but trifles compared to those whith may be ex pected to pour in upen the commercial world for an indefinite period, if we are to judge from the returns every week received from Califor nia and Australia. The revolution which this all powerful talisman has wrought in both these countries, within the last few years, ap pears like a dream. But five years ago, Cali fornia was comparatively a desert, inhabited by a few miserable, half-starved savages, or by white men whose condition wag not a great deal better. Now it has large towns, teems with population, is all alive with, industry, and by means of its wealth, in some sort, ✓■controls the operations of the whole world.— The developments in Australia are still more wonderful. But one year ago, it was known to us as a great penal colony, the receptacle of all the villainy of all the large towns of Great Britain. It was known that a better class of emigrants were gradually filling up the island, and developing its resources; but it was be lieved that it would require ages to bring it to maturity. The discovery of immense fields of gold has wrought a change as sudden, and as brilliant, as is produced by the wizard Macal lister, when merely by firing a pistol, he lights up his magic hall, and makes it glow in all the splendor of an enchanted castle. Gold is car ried from Australia, not by ounces, or by pounds, but by tons. The estimate for the en suing year, made from the present average weekly produce, and taking all obstructions into consideration, is not less than $66 to $80,- 000,000. The returns from California indicate that the gold crop in that quarter will uot fall bshind,if it does not exceed, tbe estimate for Australia. It is generally believed that the Czar, from the Ural mountains, and from Sibe ria. is raising nearly as much as is aflorded by either of these two countries: and when we take into the estimate tbe gold and silver of Old and New Mexico, Central and South Ame ses and Africa, wa cannot but think that tbe new York Herald (alls far short of tbe mark, 6r " d precious ~ l» added to the currency of the world for k TJ"?"',# $«KJ,Q*) f O<K). U l **• Mmt » tlcal erticle ajluded P "f* "SeaUucns with re which this immense influx o the precioJa metals will have upoo price* all over the world. They are probably correct, b)M arc feel at ifeia twoe no inclination to follow him. Our attention ia ratber directed to the immense influence which these discoveries must exercise o»er caramerce, over emigration, over industry of every deecriptioti, over civili sation, and, most important of all, over reli gion. The hundreds of millions of human be ings who swarm in the vast Archipelago of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and in China and Eastern Aria, already stimulated by the desire wealth, have broken through the sleep of centuries, und are pouring their thousands and tens of thousands upon our shores; and if such already be the result of the gold discoveries, what will it be in the course of the next twenty years to come? when we shall have steam lines plying from Califor nia to Japan and China, when the Pacific shall have beome white with the sails of our merchant sb ips, when the cotton of the United States shall furnish the four hundred millions of Eas tern Asia with clothing, and when Panama and Tehuantepec shall have become the loute for all those products of the boundless East, which pass t? our Eastern port and to Europe, as they must of necessity become. Already tens of thousands of Chinese are saving all they can to pay their passage to the land of gold, while we are informed that five hundred of them landed but a month since, and brought the intelligence thot a ihousand more were on the way. With surprising facility they fall into our habits, adopt our manners, and learn our language. There cannot be a doubt that thou sands of them will adopt the christian religion, for that follows next, and that they will return to China to spread the glad tidings of the gos pel among their own countrymen, at the same time that they introduce a civilization, the su perior advantages of which, though despised in the person of Europeans, whom they are accustomed to regard as barbarians, will not be overlooked when they are seen in the improved condition of their countrymen. Of more importance, even to Eastern Asia, than California will Australia prove to be. That vast Island, if it may not more properly be called a continent, situated on the shores of Southern Asia, with the inducements which its mines hold out, will be rapidly filled up from this country, from England, and from all Europe. It cannot long remain a dependent colony, and when it shall once have become in dependent, we shall have three mighty Anglo- Saxon nations, spreading their language, their commerce, their civilization, their arts, and their religion all over the habitable globe. KOSSUTH IN RICHMOND. We expressed, a few days since, the opin ion that the correspondent of the New York Herald labored under some mistake with re gard to the behavior of this man in the omni bus at the Petersburg depot. We now learn, from undoubted authority, that his statement was entirely correct. The occurrence took place exactly as he stated. The Minnesota Pioneer gives an account of a man named John Stean, who was recently found dead on his feet, near St. Paul's. He was an Englishman, between 60 and 70 years of age; had served throughout the Mexican war. and had, last fall, built himself a cabin in the woods, and shut himself up to winter. His neighbors not having seen him far some time, two of them went to his cabin, which they found locked, and on openiug it, Stean was dis covered standine at the foot of his bed, dead, and frozen solid, lie had on seven pair of pantaloons, and in a belt about his waist $270 in gold. He had evidently been dead some weeki. The Japan Expedition —Owing to the dif ficulty of obtaining seamen, the Journal of Commerce says, the expedition fitting out for Japan may nor sail at as early a day as was at first anticipated. The vessels for the Mediter ranean squadron are to be first supplied- The Government of Hawaii his issued a de- Cite admitting all flour,fish, coal, lumber, stave and heading, the produce or manufacture of tbe'United States, into the Islands free of all duty, provided the Government of the United States will admit the sugar, syrup, molasses, and coffee of the Hawaiian kingdom into all United States ports on the sarjie terms. An Execution in California.—The fol lowing thrilling account of" an execution in California was related to a recent traveller bv ! a ruffian who took part in it: '•It was just about daylight. They carried ! him to the horsemarket, set him on the table and tied the rope round one of the lowerbranch es of a big elm tree. All the time I kept by his side, and when he was getting on the table, he asked me to lend him my revolver to shoot one of the jurymen who had spoken violently against him. When I refused, he asked me to 1 tie the knot so as it would'nt slip. "It ain't no account," said I "to talk in that way, Jim, old fellow,you're bound to die; and if they didn't hang you I'd shoot you myself." "Well then," said he, "give me hold of "the rope, and I will show you now little 1 care for death." He seiz ed the cord, pulled niinselfin an instant out of the crowd, and set cross-legged on the bough. Half-a-dozen rifles were raised to bring him down, but reflecting that he could not escape, they forbore to fire. Ho tied a noose in the rope, put it round his neck, slipped it up till it was pretty tight, and then stood up and addressed the mob.' He didn't say much, except that he hated them ull. He cursed the man he =hot; he then cursed the world; and last of all cursed himself, and with a terrible oath he jumped in to the air, ucd with a jerk that shook the tree, swung backwards and forwards over the heads ofthecrowd."

Release or Dr. Hikes.—This noted char acter was set at large in Charleston last Toes day under a writ of kabea* corpu*. The rumor that Mr. Marshall, of Augusta, had been killed in an affray at Brook»ville,la., turns out to be utterly unfounded. Virginia Legislature. Fmmy, April SO. Senate. The resolution from the House,directing the Library Committee to suspend a proposed contract with Colin Sc Now lan, for. reprinting 500 copies of Leigh's Reports, wan, on motion of Mr. Campbell, laid on the table—ayes 18, noeg 15. A bill from the House, incorporating the Cape Charles House Company, was passed. Also, a bill amending the charter ofthe city of Alexandria. A senate bill, prescribing the powers and duties of the Sheriff of the city of Richmond, was reported. A bill from the House, providing for the re moval of the scales and weights for weighing live stock, brought to the city of Richmond, was taken tip —when Sir. Shelley offered a substitute for the en tire bill, which was read the third time and passed. House of Delegates. Mr. Wullace, from the Committee on Banks reported, with an amendment, a bill from the Senate, entitled "an act qpthorizing the estab lishment of the Merchants' and Mechanics' Savings Bank in the city ofßichmond." Bills were repoited—Authorising the Bank of the Valley of Virginia or the Fanners' Bank of Virginia to establish an office of discount and deposit in the town of Salem, in the coun ty of Roanoke— " And a bill to secure to Merchants, and oth ers, payment for labor done, and materials fur- in the erection of buildings in the city and county of Alexandria. An engrossed bill, providing for the appoint ment, hereafter,of an inspector of salt, in the county of Kanawha, by the County Court thereof, (an appointment now confided to the Governor of Virginia,) was taken up for con sideration. 51r. Wallace objected to the passage of the bill, and moved its indefinite postponement. The ayes and nfces, on indefinite postpone ment, were demanded, and the following was the result—nves 68, noes 52, (a party vote, with some 2 or 3 exceptions.) On motion of Rlr. Patrick, the use of the Hall of the House of Delegates was granted to Dr. Wellford, of Fredericksburg, for the pur pose of delivering an address before the Medi cal Society of Virginia, on Monday evening next, at 8 o'clock. On motion of Mr. Griffin, the Committee on County Organization was instructed to enquire into the expediency o.f so amending the 72d section of the act passed at the present session of the Legislature, for districting the counties, as to establish the house of John Hughes, in Henrico county, on the Williamsburg road, (known as Hinchman's old Tavern,) as one of the places for holding elections in District No. 1, and the house of Solomon Lovenstein, as one of the places for holding elections in District No. 4 in said county. The House went into Committee of the Whole, Mr. Tomlin in the chair,and resumed the consideration of the bill "to regulate the assessment of taxes on licenses." The bill proposes an addition 0f"75 percentum" to the present license tax, and the pending motion was to strike out "75" and leave a blank for the amount of increase. Mr. Rives, of Albemarle, was entitled to the floor, which he occupied for more than two hours, in a speech of great ability, in opposi tion to the proposed increase. He estimated the true public debt of Virginia at twelve mil lions instead of twenty two millions, as estima ted by Mr. Goode, of the Finance Committee, and he believed there was no necessity for the large increase of taxes proposed to be made at the present session. Mr. 11. having concluded, the Committee rose, and obtained leave to sit again. The following bills were passed to-day : Incorporating the Cape Charles House Com pany—fa new watering and bathing establish ment;]—lncorporating the Wythville Manu facturing Company—For the incorporation of Building, Mutual Loan and Accumulating Fuud Associations—To authorise the County Court of Orange to dispose of the public lot on which the court-house of said county now stands—To incorporate the Glade Creek and Cloverdale Turnpike Company, in Botetourt couniv—Concerning the remission of fines and penalties—[empowers the Governor to remit fines under certain regulations]— Concerning rewards tor Panthers, <fcc.—fauthorises the County Courts to allow or discontinue re wards for killing panther*, wolves, foxes, wild cats, crows, black-birds, cSce.] —To authorise the County Court of Surry to make sale of the gun-house standing on the public lot of said county—lncorporating the Farmville In stitute, in the county of Prince Edward—To authorise the Trustees of the Brooke Acade my to transfer their propeity to the Meade Collegiate Institute—To ameud the 49th sec tion of the 88th chapterof the Code and regu late the charges on loose tobacco—[provides that hereafter ail loose tobacco, received into any of the public ware-houses of the State, shall pay et the rate of thirteen cents per 100 pounds, of which one-fourth shall be for the State, one-third lor the rent and storage, and the remaining five-twelfths for the inspectors] —and a bill to incorporate the Wesleyan Male Collegiate Institute, in the town of Hariison burg.

On and after Saturday'the first of May.no notes of foreign hanks can be passed in Dela ware under tligdenomination of five dollars, uuder a penalty of ten dollars. Travelers, as well as others, should remember this. The Allgemeine Zeitung comments upon the large salaries paid to opera singers in America, and does not wonder that all the Prime Donne are eager to reach the land of dollars. Twenty-one feet of snow have fallen in the Lake Superior region the past winter. Over Mud Lake, between the Detour and Saut Ste. Marie,the clear,hard ice is still three feet thick, most parts ofihe Lake being frozen to the bot tom.

Nothing conclusive had been decided upon when the "society adjourned at half past 155 o clock P. M.,to meet at 10 o'clock Friday morning. Morning Session, Friday.—The society met pur suani to adjournment at 10 o'clock. The report from a select committee .embbdying sundry amee a menu to the present constitution necessary to give it general application to the medical faculty throughout the State, was again taken up and dis cussed at length.

Gaieties and Gravities.—This work, one of Horace Smith's best, was sent us on yesterday, by Messrs. Nash & Woodhouse. Its merits have been so well settled, that we deem it unnecessary to dwell upon them. We would call attention, how ever, to the very neat stylein which the publishers, (D. Appleton ii Co.) have gotten it up. It is ore of a series of popular works which they a*-e re-pub lishing, under the title of the " Popular Library, 1 ' and is a sample ot the whole.

S., has just arrived from Petersburg and taken rooms at the Exchange Hotel, where he may be consulted for * limited number of weeks, on the treatment of Bron chitis, Sore Throat, Pulmonary Consumption, Asth ma, and the various forms of Chronic Dyspepsia. For information* Dr G. would simply state, that his treatment consists in the "inhalation of warm med ical vapors," whereby remedies are (brought into direct contact witi the diseased surface of the Lungs. The inhalents are new, simple and inno cuous, and may be used by the most feeble invalid, without an unpleasant symptom This means of treatment affords the opportunity of conveying the power of the agent to the very seat of the dis ease. As Dr G can only remain in Richmond three or four weeks, on account of his re-engagement in Pe tersburg, if is hoped that all who wish to avail themselves of his services, wi'l lose no time in do inn so, as it is Dr G's wish that all his patients, by the time of his departure, will be either restored to health or in a fair way of recovery from two or three weeks treatment under his i nmediate care. ~ The member s oi'the medical profession are cordially invited to call.
