Another Diplomat in Hot IVater. 1 he trench Minister at Washington, M. de Sp.rtigfes, seems likely to pet into trouble with our government, like his predecessor, M. I oussin, though on pretexts far more frivol ous. Hon. John Barney, of Baltimore, consi dering hiinsel! aggrieved by certain breaches ot politeness, is said to hav« sent a challenge to M. de Sartiges. The minister and Mr. Bar ney have both submitted the matter to the President The following is Mr. Barnev'slet ter to Mr. Fillmore : . Washington, May 14,1852. Bir.—l grieve to learn from Mrs. Secretary Conrad, representations have been made, that .v Ct, ?V' J" 1 ? 6 ' 1 desi i ned to invade the sanctity ot the diplomatic corps. Truth is al ways the best explanation, and I propose to condense the facts. Among the two hundred and thirteen mem bers of the Baltimore Club, many are annoy ed by cigar smokers, and in the President's room are printed placards for their exclu sion. Last November, on entering, I found it filled with the smoke from the cigars of four gentle men, seated around the fire. I called their atten tion to the rules, and invited them to adjourn to any and every other of the thirteen rooms in the house, where they could indulge them selves aninterrupteu. 1 subsequently was in formed that it was the French Minister and suite. Anxious to obliterate any unfavorable im pression of intentional rudeness, 1 obtained from the gentleman who introduced him to the Club a letter to M. Sartiger, and, after exchanging cards, sent it to him, with a polite note, inviting him to dine with the members of the Cabinet, Foreign Ministers, Judgesofthe Supreme Court, Senators, 6cc. This he de clined, being "palablement engage," and I indulged the hope that 1 had made my peace. Not so: on board the steamer Baltic,l espress ed to Madame regreis at not seeing her daughter. "Her sister, you mean," said 31. Sartige. I replied, "I know that she is the daughier of her husband; their extreme youth might induce any to mistake theiti for sisters." "You are too lute with your compliments," replied he. No 2 occurred at a large dinner party of la dies and gentlemen. A young lady sang very sweetly. 1 remarked that 1 had never heard, out of Italy, more richness, compass, or melo dy of voice. He said, sneeringly, " i'hese old Members of Congress ure always practising fine speeches; 'tis their vocation.'" No. 3 occurred at the Spanish Minister's.— Dancing with a young lady, Mrs. inquired who she was. I turned to whisper her name, when M. Sartige remarked: "Your partner has turned his hack on you, Miss; accept my arm," and he led her away. Mrs. , remarkable or her just sense of propriety, observed that it was "the most un provoked insult she had ever witnessed." On meeting M. Sartige, the next day, in a public conservatory, I cautioned him never again to speak to, or of me. At Senator Gwin's ball, which was very crowded, as if to express his discontent, he took a segar out of his pocket, deliberately walked up to the chandelier suspended in the ceutre of the drawing room, lit it, and walk ed out, puffing his smoke in the ladies' faces. At the dinner party alluded to, he repeated the same offence, and both in my presence.— He has remarked, within my hearing, that he invites to his parties "as few married ladies as possible, and no ugly ladies, married or sin gle." In many instances he haa selected one pretty girl out of a family, without brother or sister, father or mother; and when told there is an impropriety in young ladies visiting a bach elor's house without the protection of a meml.er of her family, he replied: "American women are always willing to come to a party, with or without an invitation." He daily announces that he could not be induced to take an Ameri can wife. He annoys his neighbors by firing at rats and cats on Sundays, when others are going to church, and refuses to submit to any mter ference of the police, his premises being in violable. Having long known Prince Jerome IVapo leon Bonaparte, now President of the Senate of Fiance, as a guest at my father's house at the time of his marriage, 1 sketched a summa ry of these facto, and forwarded them to him 011 the 3d inst., and addressed to M. Sartige a copy from Baltimore, stating that my Iriend, General —, in case anything therein contained was deemed exceptionable might make arrangements to give him any explanation, &c., that he might desire, at the same timeassuring him that his peison as an Ambassador was sacred, else 1 should long since have corrected his bad manners; that 1 would remain in Baltimore four days to await his action, as I could receive no communica tion from him in the District of Columbia, it being the seat of Government, <kc. Not hear ing from him, I returned, resolved to hare no intercourse with him of any character, and have adhered strictly to this resolution, con sidering it due to society not to disturb its har mony by any personalities. I conceive I had a right to report to his Government, through a friend, that his con duct did not corresponed with the respect, courtesy, amenity, and propriety due from the Minister of France to the polished circles of Washington, holding myself responsible to him for any personal indignity, and to the world foi the gospel truth ol all the averments therein contained. M.Sartige has since appealed for protection to the Government, which was entirely un necessary, us he has twice been assured bv letters of the sanctity of his person, nor would the sanctity of refined social intercourse be invaded by the charge of even a hostile look, much less u word at the seat of Government, nor elsewhere, unless solicited. Execution at Valparaiso.—Can.biaso, the notorious insurrectionist und murderer at the Chilian convict colony, on the Straits of Mag elleu, an account of whose atrocities lias alrea dy been published, was tried together with nine of his accomplices, on charges of insurrec tion. murder, piracy, &lc. Seven were found guilty on the 23d March, and Cambiaso was executed at Valparaiso, on the 4tn of April. Peruvian Bark.—The Philadelphia North American expresses the belief that thecincho na or Peruvian burk tree, might be acclimated along the ridges of the Alleghenies, more par ticularly in the Carolinas and Georgia, and per haps even in Tennessee und Virginia. Consid ering the incalculable value of this tree, for its medicinal product, and its limited cultivation in South America, the subject deserves atten tion here. A huge marine mounter, Laving the form of a serpeut, with spout Sioles like a whale, and swimming | aws, has been captured in the Pa efiic ocean by the whuleship Monongahela,of New 1 ted foil Its immense size rendered it necessary to tut it up, but its head uud bones have been preserved. .Several camion bulls liuve been dug out of u hill in East Boston, which stands opposite Breea's llill, and it is supposed they weie fired at the battle of Bunker Hiil, local matters Rotestakt Episcopal Cosvention.— ird Day Friday.— The Convention re assembled at 9 o'clock this morning, pursuant to adjournment. Rev. Mr. Morton's resolutions, heretofore published, were referred to a Select Committee, to report at the next Convention. We omitted in our report of Thursday's pro ceedings, the following resolution, which was adopted unanimously. Rev. Mr. Denison, Agent of the Virginia Bi-! ble Society, auxiliary to the American Bible Society, offered a resolution recommending the Bible Society of Virginia t» the co-operation of every Parish in the Diocese—which was unanimously adopted. The Rev. Mr. Denison then offered the fol lowing resolution, which was adopted: Resolved, That this Convention heartily ap prove the course of many of its members in forming themselves into convocations for con tinuous preachiug, and for the purpose ordina rily contemplated iu such organizations; and that we do recommend to those of the clergy who have not yet adopted this practise, to unite in convocations wherever it may be practicable. The City of Wheeling was then selected as the place of meeting for the next Convention* and made one of the regular stations to follow after the session of Richmond. Adjourned until 9 o'clock Saturday morning. Parodi—We hope it will not be forgotten that Parodi gives a concert to-ijight at the Universalis! Church: The town is crowded with strangers. Let us advise such of them as have not heard her, to take advantage of the present opportunity. They have a pleasure in store of which they little dream. It is worth more than the money to hear Strakosch touch the piano, or Patti sing one of her favorite songs, to say nothing of Hauser's enchanted violin, which some believe to be the habitation of a familiar spirit. P. S. We received a telegraphic despatch from M. Strakosch yesterday, after the above was written. He will certainly be here this evening. The News says the company will give a concert in Fredericksburg on Monday night. New Music.—Our excellent and attentive friend, P. H. Taylor, has sent us two Polkas, both published by Firth Pond. One is styled the "Pearl Polka," and the other the " Sontag Polka." From the well known taste of the donor, we have no doubt that they are both very fine. By the bye, we should have mentioned that the delicious piano used in the Jenny Busk concerts was one of Mr. Taylor's. Richmond Harmonic Troupe—This new ly oiganized baud, composed of some of the most respectable young men in this city, will give the first of their second series of Ethiopian entertainments this evening at Odd- Fellows' Hall. Many new pieces, both of dancing and music, will be performed, and the band will be aided by two new instrumental amateurs. It is the occasion of the benefit of Messrs. Baily and Brown, and their friends should give them a bumper. BaYke's Panorama.—There will be an ex hibition of this magnificent Panorama of a Voyage to Europe, at 4 o'clock this afternoon, in the Exchange Concert Room. There will also be another in the evening. Panorama to commence moving at 8 o'clock. Sale of a Desirable Residence.—We call the attention of the public to the adver tisement of Mr. V". Win free, who offers for sale, at five o'clock this evening, at public auc tion, one of the most agreeable and retired pri vate residences in this city. Persons who wish j to buy should by all means call and examine, j It will be sold on the spot. The Augusta.—The steamer Augusta,' as will be seen by the advertisement ol Mr. Dodainead, Superintendent, will resume her trips on the river on the 2J June. She will be in fine order, having been completely refitted. Her Captain is an excellent officer, and uses every means to make his passengers comfort able. Insolent.—A man named Thomas South ards, who claims to be a white man, or to have less than one-fourth of negro blood in his veins, was on yesterday committed to jail by his Honor in default of bail,for using insolent and abusive language towards Richard Bennett and Superintendent Diddep of the lower market.— His case will come up to day for final adjust ment, when his law-color will be established, and he will be punished accordingly. Injuring a Horse.—A negro boy named William, hired to H. W. Dickerson, was brought before his Honor on yesterduy,charg ed with receiving a horse belonging to Earnest s stables, from a white boy. to take home, and running him about the streets, straining him severely.
