The Fisheries. —The following letter from
the British Minister was communicated to the
Senate on Tuesday last, by the President of the
United States:
Mr. Cramnion to Mr. Webster.
Washington, July 5,1852.
Sir—l have been directed by her Majesty's
government to bring to the knowledge of the
government of the United States a measure
■which has been adopted by her Majesty's go.
▼eminent to prevent n repetition of the com
plaints which have so frequently been made, of
the encroachmenis of v;ssels belonging to citi
zens of the United States and of France, upon
the fishing grounds reserved to Great Britain
by the Convention of 1818. Urgent represen
tations having been made to her Majesty's Go
vernment by the Governors of the British
North American Provinces, in regard to these
encroachments, whereby tlie colonial fisheries
are most seriously prejudiced, directions have
been given by the Lords of Her Majesty's Ad
miralty for stationing off New Brunswick, No
va Scotia. Prince Edward's Island, and ir. the
Gulf of St. Lawrence, such a force of small
sailing vessels and steamers as shall be deem
ed sufficient to prevent the infraction of the
treaty. It is the command of the Queen that the
officers employe J upon this service should be
specially enjoined to avoid all interference with
the vessels of friendly powers, except where
they are in the act of violating the treaty, and
on all occasions to avoid giving ground of com
plaint by the acoption of harsh or unnecessary
proceedings, when circumstances compel their
arrest or seizure.
I avail mvself of this opportunity to renew
to you the assurance of my high consideration.
John F. Crampton.
In communicating the above-mentioned cor
respondence, the President informs the Senate
that the steam frigate Mississippi, Commodore
Perry, has been dispatched to the sea 3 adja
cent io the British American Provinces, in or
der to protect the rights of our fishermen under
the treaty of 1818.
A Picture for Fanatics to Look at.—
The following picture of the condition to which
philanthropy hae reduced the British West
Indies, is sufficiently striking. If fanaticism
were capable of learning, it might become very
wise by the study of its own history and its
own work. We quote from the proceedings
of the British House of Lords, of the 10th of
June:
Lord Brougham presented a petition from
the judges and bar in Jamaica, complaining of
the distressed state of that Island. Though
he agreed with some of the allegations of the
petitioners, he hid already stated that he
should not support their petition, but he
thought it his duty to call the attention of the
House to the subject, which was one of great
importance. The uoble Lord then read the
petition.
Earl Grey protested against that part ol the
petition which declared that tho effect of the
measures oflß4o and 1848, hud been an increase
in the slave trade.
The Bishop of Oxford, on the other hand,
asserted that the effect of those measures had
been a large increase in that traffic.
Similar petitions have been presented from
the islands of Antigua and the Mauritus, and
from British Guiana; the Eurl of Deiby said
that he had received not a petition, but a me
morial from clergymen of all denominations in
Jamaica, bearing witness not only to the dis
tress which prevailed in the colony, but also
to the barbarism into which a large proportion
of the colored commuuiiy were rapidly relap
sing. In his opinion, the only effectual remedy
for colonial distress would be to stop the pro
gress of the reduction in the different duties
on sugar; for in spite of the assertion of Lord
Grey, he believed that it was not possible to
produce sugar bv tree labor to compete on
equal terms with slave labor. At the same
time he confessed that he entertained great
doubt whether the public mind of thiscountrv
was prepared to sacrifice the economic inter",
est* which might be involved in such a propo
sition
On the evening of the 26th ult., John V.
Clark, a merchant in Cincinnati, went over to
Coviuglou to see his child, who was with hf3
mother,ftom whom Mr. C. had Separated on
account of some private difficulty. While
there he Ml into a quarrel with his wife's
brother-ill law, Wm.E Arthur, attorney at law,
1U Covingtou, wheu many harsh words passed
between the two. Ciurk drew a knife aud
Stabbed Arthur several times, and run.—
".Jamison, another brother in law, pur
sued hint with u revolver and fired several
tunes, one of the balls just grazing his bead.
Clark escaped to Cincinnati.
Threat to Swallow a jSteam Boiler.—
Twenty seven year* ago a committee of the
House of Commons was appointed to examine
into the state of steam navigation. Lord Stan
ley was chairman of that committee, and on
Mr. Robert Stephenson, the eminent engineer,
■peaking of the probability of steamships cross
ing the Atlantic, Lord Stanley rose from his
•eat and exclaimed, "Good heavens! what do
you aayf If ateainships cross the Atlantic, I
will eat the boiler of the first ship!"
Mr. FoßfcltsT AT THE Wekck.—-While the
unfortunate beingsjwere struggling in the water
at the burning of the Henry Clay, Mr. Edwin
Forrest, who was then at bit castle, seeing
their eoadkioa ran down, jumped into the
water, and succeeded in rescuing many from
• watery grave, and alee in recovering several

The Henry Clef Citamty.
By last night's mail, we received ths wrei«»
of the •owner*, toqnrst over the tod.ee of «
of the victims of the stesmboat Hewjr Wsy,
io which they deelere:
That John F.Tallroan wae captain, and one
»f .h. «wrMB: Jsroes L. Jessup waa clerkj
Edward Hubbard, pilot; James Elmetidorf,
„cond pilot; John Germatne, engineer; Chaa.
Merritt, assiatsnt engineer; and that a certain
vouoz man, whoae name is unknown to the
jurv, but who waa employed to attend bar for
said steamboat, and that they were ay on hoard,
and each of them had part of the charge of
«aid steamboat, and that after leaving Albany
on that day on which the steamboat was navw
gating the Hudson river, in this State, and
while engaged in the conveyance of passen
ger*, of excelling in speed a certain other steam
boat, called the Armenia, or for the purpose of
increasing the speed of the aaid Henry Clay,
did create, or allow to be created, an undue or
unsafe quantity of steam, and in so doing did
mnke or allow to be made excessive fires, and
did not use ordinary prudence in the manage
ment of said fires; and, although often being
remonstrated with by different passengers, did
for a long time continue the excessive fires;
and in consequence thereof, through theircul
pable neg'igence nnd criminal recklessness,
the Henry Cloy did, at fifteen minutes after
three o'clock, on the afternoon as aforesaid,
take fire, and all the deaths ensued as afore
said. And so the jurors Kay thut the death of
nil the said persons and of each of them was
the result of an act perpetrated by JohnF.
Tullitian, Thomas Collyer, James L. Jessup,
James Elanendorf, Edward Hubbard, John
Gerinaine, Charles Merritt, and the said bar
keeper, which act was eminently dangerous
to others, and evinced a depraved mind, regard
less ofhuinun life, although it was perpetrated
without any premeditated design to effect the
death of any pirticular individual.
[Signed by all the jury.]
The operations at the wreck on Tuesday
were continued, and resulted in the removal
of all that was left which was worth bringing
to vhe city. Tne whole of the timbers were,
in fact, raised, but no more bodies were recov
ered. In the location immediately beneath,
where the captain's office stood, a quantity of
gold, silver and copper was found. The coin
which it had composed appeared to have been
completely molten, nnd run into all sorts of
shapes as it fell into the water.
Mr. Meugher appears to have gained the ad
miration of alt parties in New York, no less by
his fine personal qualities than by the entire
propriety and modesty of demeanor which he
has observed. The N. Y. Express speaks of
him in the following terms :
Meagher is manifestly a gentleman and a
scholar, and, if unfortunate in his own country,
and an exile now in u foreign laud, he is none
the less worthy of public esteem. He has the
rare merit of modesty, and no more of personal
vanity übout him, we should judge, than the
humblest and most uudisiiuguiihed of Irish
men. For this we have acquired an admiration
of (he man which the hot competition we have
seen, of late, in the exiled patriot business,
could not repress. Perhaps no man has suf
fered more lor iiis country, ai these lutterdavs,
than this distinguished Irishman; vet no man
has been more carelut to avoid the least sus
picion of making his misfortunes a pretext for
professional begging.
The Skupinski Confessions.—We copy
the following from the Pniiadeiphia Ledger,
of Wednesday :
Matthias Skupinski, the occupant of the
condemned cell at the County piison, if all
accounts are correct, is now almost daily mak
ing confessious, or contradicting those previ
ously made. On Monday, a number ot the
condemned man's country men visited the pri
son, and four or five were introduced into his
cell. One of them cuine over to New York
with the prisoner in the ship Robert Bell, in
1849. These persons having a knowledge,
both of the Polish and English languuges,
the prisoner gave a statement us to his past
life, and the circumstances connected with his
present condition, which was translated into
English, and reduced to writing by Joseph P.
Longhead, late Prosecuting Attorney. Thi3
last confession not only presents a denial as
to his guilt in the murder of Lehman, but also
asseverates his innocence of any other mur
ders, ei her in this country or in Europe.
A statement has been drawn up by Celes
tin Willium, the Catholic piiestwho has been
attending him as a spiritual adviser, which is
to the same effect.
It would seem either tlint the prisoner has
not been yet affected by the hurror of his im
pending fate to such degree as to induce him
to disclose the whole truth, and the discre
pancies of the various statements grow out of
the lying spirit within him, or else that the
persons conversing with him do not exactly
comprehend his language, and report him us
saying just the reverse of what he intended.
Consumption of Gold.—The following
curious statistics telative to the consumption
of gold were stated in a Lecture lately deliver
ed at the Geological Society at London :
The entire amount of gold in circulation is
said to be £48,000,00(1; of which the wear and
is stated to be 3J per cent, annuully, or
£1,680,000. The consumption of gold in arts
and manufactures is as follows:
In the United Kingdom, £'2,500,000
France, 1,000.000
Switzerland, 460,000
Other pnrts of Europe, 1,600,000
United States, 500,000
£6,050,000
In Birmingham alone there is a weekly con
sumption of sold fur chains only amounting to
1000 oz The weekly consumption for gold
leaf in London is 400 oz.; in other places in
Great Britain, 184 oz.
One of the potteries in Staffordshire con
sumes £3,500 worth of gold annually in gild
ing; and the whole consumption for gilding
porcelain in England is estimated at about 8,500
ounces annually.
The Telegraph in California.—The
Placer Times,of the 30th of June, says:
'Messrs. Buinham and Allen obtained from
the last Legislature, a charter fo the construc
lion of a line of telegraph from this city to
Marvsville, via San Jose, Stockton and Sacra
mento. The act gives these gentlemen the ex
clusive right to construct a line over the route
specified, and to use it for the period of fifteen
years. Messrs. Burnham and Allen have per
fected their urrangeineuts for an early comple
tion of the work, if sufficient inducements
should be given by San Francisco, and the
towns through which the line is iutended to
pass, to justify such an undertaking, which we
believe will be the case. Books have been
opened in this city for subscription to the stock
of the company."
A Potential Dodge.—Those who happen
to live just this side of the line, which for miles
divides Massachusetts from New Hampshire,
escape the rigorous operation of the Liquor
Law, by stepping over, and thus hevond its
jurisdiction. By a similar process the Granite
ribbed commonwealth has not unfrequeutly
extended aid and comfort to the lineal outsi
ders of Maine. We have understood that a
number of liquor dealers in the vicinity of
Lowell have recently taken up their übode in
0lh u r p, . tlce • in New Hampshire,
within half an hour's ride. One individual
has bought a piece of land in that State, and
bar standi " * b l uildiD *' *V° R,rived that his
bar stands exactly up to the line in New Hamp
ehire, while his customers, aa they holt the
glass to the mouth, drink in Massachusetts 1
This is a dodge potential, which the law con
not touch.— Lowell Courier.
Thk RAID Cas*.—Two witnesses wen
examined in this esse onTuesdsy—J. B. Ac
cinelly, (conductor on tl» Ssabosrd and Roa
noke Railritad,) sad officer Ingslls of Button.
The former testified to laving seen John W.
Rand and another stranger on the ears, going
from Portsmouth to Weldon, on tbe 24ih of
March. Must of the morning was consumed
in arguments concernieg the admissibility of
certain testimony.
Militaky Visit.—The Nations! Guards,
Captain Garland, of Hsrrisburg, Pa., intend
making an excursion to Richmond in Septem
ber. The Harrisburg Union ssys this is one
of the best drilled companies in the country,
and is made up of most respectable young
men, who will do credit to themselves and
the military profession wherever they may
Declises.—J. W. Kennedy, of Philadel
phia, has published a card, in which he states
that if he is the person nominated for the Vice
Presidency of tbe United States, by the Union
convention held in that city on Monday, he
respectfully declines the honor, and being a
compromise democrat will support General
Pierce.
Resignation.—ln the House of Represen
tatives, on Wednesday, the Speaker laid before
the House the resignation of the Hon. Hum
phrey Marshall, of Kentucky, of his seat as a
member ol the present Congress It is report
ed that he has been appointed Commissioner
to China.
Tehuantepec Cukn. —The editor of tae
New Orleans Picayune has been favored with
some fine specimens of green corn, raised from
seed sent from the Isthmus of I'ehuantepec.
The ears are long, slender, large-grained and
compact, with an elegant appearance, and
some peculiarities about the shuck. One of
the ears measures 16 inches.
Safety of Mr. George Bell.—We ore
glad to learn, from the Alexandria Gazette,
that the fears which have been entertained, for
some days past, of the loss of Mr. George Bell,
of that place, and his family, on board the
Henry Clay, are at an end. He was not on
board, and he and his family, are safe. His
brother received a letter from him, dated Alba
ny, August 1, stating that he had been detained
in that city, by the sickness of his wife's sis«.
ter.
New Charter of Alexandria.—On
Wednesday, the vote was taken in Alexandria
on the quesiiou of accepting or rejecting the
new charter. Majority for accepting, 62.
Telegraphic.—The Lynchburg and Abing
don Telegraph Company have extended their
line to Farmville. It goes into operation to
day.
Death of Joseph Cashing.—Joseph Cush
ing, a well known and highly esteemed citizen
of Baltimore, died in that city on Tuesday
evening last, at the ase of 71 years.
Fire.—The vuluable Flouring Mill of Mr.
W. C. Murrav. of Tomlinson's Run, Han
cock co., Va., was destroyed by fire on Thurs
day night week, together with the contents.—
Insured for $2 000.
S3P* The Grand Encampmeut, I. O. O. F.,
ofthe State of Virginia, is in session at Alex_
andria.
The Whigs of the Kennebec district in
Maine have nominated Samuel P. Benson for
Congress.
A simple Hibernian tar, a great favorite with
Nelson, used to prav in these words every
night when he,went to his hammock: "God
be thanked 1 never killed any man, nor any
man ever Killed me. God bless the world, and
success to the British Navy."
Tall Chimneys.—We perceive by our ex.-
changes that a line of steamboats is now iu
course of construction to run on the Thames,
which are to be built without any chimneys.
The auioke, and the products of combustion,
are to be discharged into the wheel-house, so
that the draught will be increased by the ac
tion of 'he paddles, and the unconsuiried par
ticles of the fuel mingird with the water.—
The object of this improvement is to give
greater facility in passing the very low bridges
over the Thames, which are necessarily built
on a level with the streets of London.
Dkeadful Accident from Camphine.—
A most heartrending accident occurred last
night, about 9 o'clock, iu Fayette street, near
Hun ally. The particulars, as near as we
could gather them this morning, are these :—
Two girls, one ihe daughter ol Mr. Picke and
theotheran orphan living with Mrs. Good
win, went over to the baKery of Mr. Eckart
for something in his line, and when standing
near the counter, Mrs. Eckart commenced fill
ing the lamp with catnphine whilst it was
lighted, and not observing when it was full,
having her attention drawn to something else,
let a considerable quantity run over, which
immediately ignited and spread over most of
the counter, setting fire to the dresses of her
self and both the girls. Miss Ficke ran iuto
the street with herclothes all in a blaze, and
is most shockingly burnt, she is alive this
morning, but there is very little hope of her
recovery- Mrs. Eckart and the orphan girl
are both very much injured, but it is thought
they will recover. The name of the orphan
gill is Augusta fijtiner, and her nge about 18
years.—Baltimore Prl., Wednesday.
A Heroic Act.—At Daphne, Mobile Bay,
on the 25th ult., a little boy, adopted son of
Mrs. Mary Stuart, of Mobile, while playing
with some of his companions, on and near the
end of the long wharf, accidentally fell into the
Bay, where the water was fifteen feet in depth.
A young lad named Thomas Jenneyg, of New
Orleans, was a short distance from the spot,
heard the splash, und seeing a hat fio&ting on
the water, together amid the screums ot the
ladies who were on the wharf, with that daring
courage which denotes a brave and generous
heart, plung'd fearlessly iuto the water, at the
risk of his own life, and rescued the unfortu
nate youth after he hud sank the third time to
rise no more.
Fatal Accident.—A melancholy accident
occurred in Jasper county, Ga., on the 15th
ult. A letter to the Augusta Constitutionalist
says that two men, one named Ward, and the
other Gamer, while working in a well of Mrs.
Chapman, became ufiected by the gas con
tained therein. They called lor the basket to
be lowered; when Mrs. Chapman and her
daughter let down the basket. Mr. Ward got
in and was drawn to the top of the well, when
he fainted and fell to the bottom, a depth of
about 60 feet. Mr. Gut tier then called for the
basket to be lowered tor him, when he got in
and was drawn to the top; in making an ut
tempt to get out, he also fell to the bottom.—
There were none but females about the premi
se*, so they sent for assistance to Planter's
Factory, about onu mile off, where the men
lived. The man were hooked up. Ward was
badly bruised, aud had some of bis bones
It is thought he died shortly after he
fell. Garner lived for aomc time after he was
taken out.
FROMMEXICO.
By the brie Tebuau tepee, we have dates
from the city of Mexico ofthe 14ib J ul/.

quest ion* which now eugege He attention.—
Hie friends will not el low him to ebeudon bis
post till the Tehuentepee affair be settled. The
attacks which have been made against him by
the opposition press here mede him disgusted
with tbe position which he occupies,and would
very willingly give it up, if it were not for the
earnest solicitations ol h s friends, who approve
of his late conduct in the Tebuaniepec con
troversy. Sr. Miguel Arroyo is talked of ae
his probable successor.
The delegation of gentlemen sent by the
State of Zacatecas, having presented them
selves at the palace on the 9th mat., asked to
see the President of ihe Republic, for the pur
pose of consulting with him upon tbe unfortu
nate events in the Fresnillo, by which several
inhabitants were killed by the Indians. Arista,
on the plea that he was engaged with some im
portant matters, which required his immediate
attention, sent these gentlemen a request that
they should call again iu an hour, i hey were
very much offended at this, and they deter
mined a card against the President; in which
they accuse the General Government of having
abandoned the State of Zacatecas.
The late execution in Matarnoras, of the four
men arrested as belonging to Carvajal's party,
caused an excitement among the friends of the
expedition in Brownsville, that the streets were
tilled with people uttering shouts and curses
against the Mexican Government, and against
General Avulos, whom they shot in effigy, and
afterward burned.
The papers lately received from Merida and
Campeacby, contain sitifactory news iu rela
tion to the war agaiust the Indians iu Vucatau.
The ability and activity of General Dela Vega,
are highly praised. He is heralded as the great
pacificator of the peninsula.
The Government of the State of Vera Cruz,
has made arrangements with a Mr. De la
Granju, to make the telegraphic line pass
through Juluppa, and put this city in commu
nication with Mexico, Vera Cruz and interme
diate points.
The lightuing fell lately on the electric wire
near Vera Cruz, came into the office, destroyed
the telegraphic apparatus there, then followed
the wire to Orizaba, where it did great damage.
Salvi, the great tenor, fell from his horse on
the 12th., and was severely hurt in Lis right
arm. He suffered great paiu from the accident,
but it was hoped that he would again appear
upon the stage, in the course of eight days.
To Tobacco Chewers.—The Lancaster
(S. C.,) Ledger says that C. M. Heath, Esq.,
of that district, aged forty seven years, quit
chewing tobacco on the 20th of May. His
weight at that time was 138—on the 25th of
June he weighed 153—gain in five weeks 15
pounds. He also states that he has been fiee
from a nervous headache which constantly
attended hiui while in the habit of chewing.
Departure of Missionaries.—The Rev.
Mr. Brewster and wife, and Miss Jones, sailed
from Boston, on Saturday, for China, in the
