To Advertisers. —We earnestly request
our patrons to send in their advertisements
early in the day. Our paper is frequently de
layed until a late hour by advertisements,
causing serious inconveuience to all concerned.
A little attention on the part of advertisers
would remedy the evil.
We have rarely ever known the Richmond
public more excited by any occurrence than
they have been by the late terrible disaster on
the Hudson. Before, it bad been common to
read of disasters—to think .of them as distant
occurrences, dreadful enough, it is true, but
occurrences in which we bad, and could have,
no direct personal iuterest. Now the whole
terrible nature of the transaction is brought di
rectly before us—our own citizens have fallen
—have been murdered, in the opinion of many,
by tbe recklessness of the commander of a
steamer—of the man to whom they had en
trusted their live?, in the belief that he would
care for them as a mother cares for her own
child. Such is, or ought to be, the compact be
tween the commander of a boat and the pas
sengers whose lives are at his mercy. It is
true, as we have before taken occasion to state,
the passengers are often greatly to blame for
the disasters which happen on board steam
boats. It is true, we stated, end we take oc
casion to repeat, that in many instances they
induce and almost compel the captain to risk
his own life, and the lives of his passengers
and crew, rather than be beaten ; but that is
scarcely a legitimate excuse for the captain.—
The lives of human beings are entrusted to
his keeping. They should be far more pre
cious to him than all and every possible oth
er consideration.
By looking at our telegraphic report, our
readers will understand why we have made
these retnaiks. Our citizens who were on board
the Reindeer, have all died from the wounds
received in that awful catastrophe. Messrs.
Barnes, Suell and Rileigh were highly res
pected by all this community. The former, we
learn, was so decidedly averse to steamboat
racing, that he expressed the determination,
before he left, not to enter on board of a North
river boat under any circumstances. He had
the fate of the steamer Henry Clay and her
passengers before his eyes, and was determined
to avoid it, or the risk of it. It is almost enough
to make a man tuin fatalist, to think o! the
manner in which he was led on to his destruc
Everybody laments the death of these pen
tlemen ; but a far deeper interest is felt in that
of thetwo young ladies, whose names are re
corded among the victims. The writer, to the
best of his knowledge, never saw either of
them, but he learns, on all hands, that they
were both lovely girls, in the very spring of
life, neither of them having attained the nine
teenth year of her life. They were sisters and
orphans, travelling with their stepfather, with
the hope of recovering from the deepest of all
domestic calamities—the recent death of their
mother. One of them, we learn, was uncom
monly beautiful—so much so as to attract the
attention of almost every stranger who visited
the city. Poor young creatures ! they had
Icnown sorrow early ; for they had felt what it
was to be orphans and no kindness or affec
tion—and they received it in as large a propor
tion as falls commonly to the lot of any one—
can supply that irreparable deprivajion. Be
fore the tears were dry which had been shed
over the grave of their last parent, without a
moment's warning, ere their very thoughts
could pray, they were hurried into eternity.—
There is, to us, something inexpressibly af
fecting in their fate. We learn that they were
both professors of religion. Their young and
innocent lives, at any rate, had allowed of no
fault, which e»en the most ascetic of profes
sors might not, without violence to his creed,
hope and believe would find mercy in a better
Let it not be believed that we feel the less
sympathy for the other victims, because we
express so much for the young and beautiful.
Not only we, but all this community, feel for
them most deeply ; and in tbe name of the en
tire Richmond public, we tender to their be
reaved friends all those sympathies which they
Let us, fellow citizens, call a meeting to
■how our respect for our dead.
This is the anniversary of the great battle of
Borodino, fought in the Russian campaign of
1812, between the French, under Napoleon,
and the Russians under Kutusoff. This was
probably, all things taken into consideration,
the most terrible conflict that ever occurred in
Europe, at least in modern times. The forces
have been variously estimated. Gen. Gour
gaud, on what seems to be good authority,
states that the French army was 119,000 men
strong, and that the Russians had, on the
ground, 170 000 men. Others have made dif
ferent statements. But one thing seems to be
admitted, and that is, that the Russians were
entrenched up to their necks, and that they
bad greatljMhe advantage in artillery, both as
to calibre end number. When it is known that
the French themselves had 478 guns, some es
timate may be formed of the "noise and confu*
•ion" created by the two parties. The battle
lasted all day, from the rising to tbe setting
of tbe sob. Allison says that 97,000 men were
•ither killed or desperately wounded. The
French were victorious, anJ pushing the
Russians upon Moscow, caused them to burn
that ancient Capital of the Empire.
Riots aid Loss or Lira.—Several riots oc
curred among the firemen of Philadelphia on
Saturday night last. Poliee. officer Hartman
interfered, and arrested a man, wbfa a rescue
was attempted. Hartman fired a pistol, killing
Bernard Costello, a fireman.
A project m now ua foot to jet the Jamas
river steamboat* to touch it the town of
Hampton, thereby affording a direct trade with
that town and ita rich back country, to Rich
mond and Petersburg. The inducement of
fered to these boats for them to land at Hamp
ton is, we hear, the sopercedenee of their pre
sent mail arrangement, and the giving to them
of the contract for mail carriage. We cannot
express a too hearty concurrence in this
scheme. We think it promises to be on* in
which the quite rare thing will happen, viz :
that all parties will be benefitted. It would be
the means of giving the citizens of Hampton
and vicinity, a daily Northern and Southern
■ail, which, in their present almost isolated
atate, they much need. Itwonld open ready
meana for transportation for the vegetables,
fruit, fish and oysters, which they grow so
abundantly, and ofwhich.owing to the want of
acili'ies of conveyance, they can now make no
disposition. It would make thecitics ofßich
mond and Petersburg the return, the supply
ing source of their llour, tobacco and coarse
cottons, and, as a consequence, the markets
for the sale of their wheat and corn. It would
give to those citizens of Richmond and Peters
burg, who, in the summer season, prefer to go
with their families to the delightful retreats iu
and about Hampton, a direct travel, avoiding
the additional expense and fatigue consequent
upon the present route. The boats themselves
would come in for a lurge share of the benefit;
they would get $1600 as a sinecure—within
$400 of what they now get for taking the mail
to points on the river between Richmond and
Norfolk. Quantities offreight, as well as pas
sengers, would, as a matter of course, be car
ried to and fro daily ; besides, there would be
the additional freight which they would earry
twice a day between Norfolk and Hampton.
For our part we do not see why this thing
has not been done long ago. The advantages
that would result are palpable at the first
blush, and become more and more apparent
upon enquiry and examination. We are glad
to hear that the people of liamptbn have
waked up cn this sulject. It augurs well for
the future prosperity of that enterprising little
town. She sees the benefits from this commu
nication and is determined to effect it, even if
she has to put an opposition line on the liver.
One of her citizens passed through here the
other day, asking, in the name of the good lit
tle town of Hampton, the co operation of the
citizens of Richmond in effecting this end.—

Tho dog is a very va'.usble animal to man—like
the horse, he is the companion of man. To be
useful, however, the number of dogs should not be
too great, and those tiiat are kept, should be well
mann-.red and well watched, and well drilled and
disciplined in tbe servics for which they are intend
ed. Iu cities there are few purposes to which a dog
can be put—to guard a house or gocds and kill
rata being about the tun total of their useful occu
pations. But strange lo say, h?re, where dogs are
comparatively of so li t.c value, they most do con
gregate. In many hou.-es with a lot twenty by fifty
feet, you will find almos; a3 many bs would serve
for a arge farm; and every square can produce a
phalanx of the canine including almost every
variety from the noblest cf the species lo the "cur
cf low degree." Holv.itkstandirg the numberis
so great, we have no nt ans ot relieving ourselves
rf their redundant population, except the net
which Messrs. White, Pege, Pearce, &. Co , with
their detachment of go* and heg catchers periodi
cally carry through tha city. But very tew are
caught in the net. and it has often occurred to us
that the night after the procession of the dog catch
ers through the street*, there is a great deal tf ex
tra baiking more than on other nights—tho dogs
possibly thus expressing their deriEion of the feeble
attempt of their enemy to lessen theirnumbers.
Lynchburg, which hi-:s shown a praisuwortby am
bition to display the attributes of a city, has adopted
a more efficient remedy against the mutiplication of
dogs. Imitating the Crescent city, she has been
employing poison as the best agent tor this purpose,
and has made a telling assiu't upon the canine race,
which from all accounts was as rapidly getting
ahead of humanity th. re as it is here. We aie
very much inclined to believe in the supeiior hu
manity of that mode of kiliing dogs. Here, after
the dogs are captured they are taken to the market
place for a time to give an opportunity lor the re
demption of such as have masters who are able
and willing to save their lives by paying a pre tty
liberal ransom Those that are not so fortunate,
are knocked in the head and thrown like dogs in
to that ravine known as dog heaven, whence it is to
be hoped, lor their sakes, their souls, if they have
any, pass into more blissful regious. But the poi
son does not mutilate the victim—it don't break
the skull and gives but little pain. Itis taken in a
form mcst agreeable to dogs—a well seasoceu sau
sage or sweet morsel of meat—a few pangs, insensi
bility and death rapidly ensue, and there's an end
on it.
Time was, when pciscn was the death most in
vogue for the condemned of mankind in the moat
enlightened nations—but now we employ, certain
ly, a more elevated manner of puuishment—we
hang them up by the neck. We are led to suppose
from proverbial indications that about that ancient
tune or some other, hanging was tbe mode of exe
cuting dogs, a ' dog s death" is known everywhere
to be hanging; and to hang one "like a dog," is as old
a.rnost as the hills. Having apprc priated hanging to
man, a* possibly too exalted for dogs, poison id re
med in some places, Ljnchburg l»r instance, as
more fitting lor dogs. Bat tben the more humane
manner in which the poison is now administered
to the dog than erst it was to man, is perhaps a
mark of the d;stinctive features of the age in which
we live. The victim then took up the poisoned
cup with a perfect knowledge of his fate; from out
its liquid contents the hideous form of death stared
him in the face! The Dog, all unknowing, seiaes
the tempting morsel, the delightful eauiage, and
devours it with heaxty satisfaction. Nor are his
sufleiings great; far aa intelligent Newfoundland
with noble head and graceful and abundant tail
having much the air of sell-aatisfacrion and .uperi
ty of some doctors—we have no doubt he was a
dug doctor-told u. a day or two ago, thai « dog's
death from poison was no great matter, there were
•ome severe twinges he admitted in the stomach; but
insensibility «oon followed and he suffered no uure
nil he was a "dead dog." Many of your epicure,,
he Mid, W h o i DOr oinate and highly seasoned
dinners, suffer more wit a the belly-ache, almost
•ny day in the year than doe* a poisoned do*. If
It were my (ate to die a violent death, said ha let it
come in a poisoned sausage.
This is no doubt all very true; and the people 0 f
Lynchburg, who to commiserated the poisoned
dogs, made a (teat misuke. It U much the moat
humane mode of di»po*i» g of do|s. It ia, too, tlm
more Democratic; for the rich and the poor man's
dog alike share the same fate. Money does not se
cure the salvation cf a aog as with us—the want of
It, mummmaf a valuable dog's skull to be eraek«d

detestable practices.
We respectfully invite the attention of the city
eouncil to these sage reflection*. The dog popu
lation la enormously large in this city, and Is con
itantly increasing. Toe nightly canine proces
sioos through the streets—the nocturnal affVsys of
the dogs with their bowling, barking and screech
ing: at dmee appalling—are a public scandal and in
the last degree annoying to the citizens. We know
no animal that makes as much noise and creates as
much disturbance as these dogs, unless it be man
himself! Men, the police, however, take up—Dogt
are allowed to go on in their disorder. They ought
to be arrested; there ought to be no such distinction
between the two racos 1
The Petertburg Express and Ourtelttt.
The Express, in repfar .to some complimen
tary remarks of ours says :
"Thank you, kind sir; we owe you one."
We know not whether the above waa penned
by the senior Editor of that deservedly popu
lor and spirited sheet, or his worthy associate;
but if the former will pay the Cockade a visit,
our word for it, the bright eyes of Petersburg's
fair daughters will place an arrow in his bach
elor bosom, that nothing save becoming a
Benedict himself, will remove.
The senior editor is very much obliged to
his neighbor of Petersburg, though he did not
write the notice in question. As he endorses
it, however, he supposes it makes but little
difference. In return be will say, that he has
no objection to having an arrow of the kind
spoken of planted in his bosom, provided any
good is to come of it. But be does object to
having it there planted, merely that it may
rankle and fester without producing any fruit.
So if our friend of the Express is willing to en
gage for uq, we shall go over; but unless he
will, we shall stay here. He must do the
courting, that is certain, for he has proved
that he understands the science, and we very
greatly distrust our abilities in that line.

Winterpock, Chesterfield Co., Va.,
Sept. 1834.—Trii is to crtify that Mr.
James H. Sharp save a Conc?rt at the Clover Kill
Mines, Chesterfield County, Virginia, on the Od of
September, 1852—at which concert I was present.
This individual, from a tiuly wonderful control
over the vocal apparatus of the larynx, is capable
of proc ucing the tenor and base sound simuiUne
outly—the former ol'which sounds is exquisitely
soft and touchingly beautiful. Entire satisraction
was given to quite a large audience, all being &6ton
ithed at the carious phenomena set forth in his
performance. As a matter of mere curiosity, 1
should think Mr. Snarp's concert would be attend

kept a grocery in Port Mayo tor near twenty years,
known to be ol irreproachable character, so that
even the. County Court of Henrico did state on
the certificate of his former hcer.se, that he is a man
of gcoc character and deportment: such a man, it
appears, has been presented before the Grnnd Jury
of this county in twenty-'.tco eases, by and through
the instrumentality and instigation of one man in
that section, who happened to be at enmity with
him. Certainly such an act of malice and revenge
to injure and ruin another volun arily, to thatjextent,
is like stabbing a man in the dark—is not only cow
ardly, but disgraceful—and cases ascertained which
are produced by malicious and malignant feelings,
by men guilty behind the curtain, deserve not only
the indiguation of the public, but such cases should
be thrown out ot court, with cost to oe paid by the
original instigator and mover; and the court would
then not so of en delay causes of importance on the
civil docket, which for years stood neglected, and
are continually laid over for want of time, by the
court going on with commonwealth matters, which
frequently take up the week, and thereby the court
itself does stop the regular channel <»f civil public
justice; taerefore the commonwealth, in justice to
oth- r parties by their Attorney should, if possible,
condeusu the proceedings, as the time and expenses
of the court would be saved by so many complica
ted trials of commonwealth cases, as in tfiis instance
may be expected against one man, (Scott ) of
which the fuses (if by tricking, found guiity.)
would, of course, form an unreasonably large
amount, which can never beexpected to be collect

a situation wili first secure his friends, who are, or
may be in some transactions, legally bound for him,
by the conveyance of his property, to bear them
harmless would be his duty, and which, in this
case, may possibly have been done, consequently no
benefit can result to the commonwealth whatever
from such wholesale com:ncnwealth proceedings ;

detriment of his own private btuineas, is deserving
of full praise. The first ease up waa that ot Freder

with stealing soeks and rings. Frcm the evidence
it appeared that on Saturday evening Frederick
first entered the store of Mr. P. H. Keacb, on Main
street, and sfter enquiry for certain articles of
goods, stole two pair tf socks—the theft not being
discovered until after he left the etore. He then
proceeded to'Zimmerman's variety store, on(Main
street, and succeeded in stealing six gold rings from
the show case in front of the store. There hap

about sixteen years of age, gave his name to officer

of a breach of trust, and he was discharged. This

Secure the shadow ere the substance fade,
Let nature copy that which nature made;
Think not these Portraits, by the sun light made,
Shades though they are, will, like a shadow, fade.
No ! When the lip of flesh in dust shall lie,
When death's gray film spreads o'er the beaming
Moulson's lifelike Pictu-es,mocking at decay,
Will still be fresh and vivid as to day.

them; by some, for the richness of the coloring,
peculiar to them aione—some for the clearness and
distinctness of the tigure, enabling the dpcctator to
see them in any light with the greatest ease—some
for the strength of their light and shade, clearnesi
of the eye, and the general artistical finish of the
entire picture. When it is known that we furnish
such gems to our patrons, is it wonderful that our

Dinwiddib Co , Va„ June, 1352.
To Dr. J. 8. Rose, Philadelphia—Dear Sir: For
the sake of humanity, 1 write these few lines to in
form you and the ' public generally, of the great
cure your Dyspeptic Compound has made on me.
In the summer of .1850,1 was attacked with a vio
lent diarrhoea, and after trying the remedies pre
scribed by two or three eminent physicians lor 18
months, without any etfect, and being reduced al
most to a skeleton, end scarcely able to walk across
my room, 1 accidentally received one of your cir
culars, in which I found my disease exactly do
scribed. My son went to Petersburg and purchas
ed a bottle of Uie DYSPEPTIC COMPOUND, with
and to my great astonishment and satisfaction, 1
found relief in a tew days; and in two we«ks
I was entirely well. At this time I am in be tter
health than i have been In ten «r twelve years. In
short, sir, your medicine saved my life.
Your, with respect, GEO. J. JONE3.
