The TV it* « Port devotes a leader to Mr. Browne's Free Nesrro Bill, which it understands to resemble very closely the bill broucht up during a recent *es sion, to force the emigration of this class by a sys tem of onerou • taxation. To this the Post is oppos ed, as well a* to the object the *ystem has in view that ofcnforciotg immeHia't emigration. In one of th£ largest sUve holding counties of the State a meeting was held" during the pendency of the form er bill, and str nag and convincing resolution" were adopted pin-testing acainst the proposed measure About the same time a publication ap peared, written by ."the present editor of the South ern Planter, #howri>ethat the tree negro popula tion of Virginia, con ipared with any similar popula tion in the world, w as the most orderly and the least vicious. This »'tatement the editor of the Post belie ves'to be true, and proceeds to show]|that the free necrroes as a cTasi » are more sinned against than sinning; arguinj (urt'c ennore that the subtraction of so large a quantity from the sum'of general labor, particularly; at this time of high'prices tor bread stuff?:, must be severely felt, —and in conclusion says that if the Legislature would take some steps to restrain the insolence of the slave population especially about the s Greets of cities and towns, it would confer a much greater blessing on the coun ty than it can by taxing- free negroes who are nev er guilty of it. The Mail infers from palpable indications that the session of the'present Virginia Legislature will be as fruitless ot any real gt>od to the State as though the members thereof had never emerged from their homes to hold discordant counsel within the walls of thecapitol. Local jealousy is assigned as the main difficulty, but then there are those who by the proposal of incessant amendments eventually thwart or defeat schemes of important State interest whilst professing friendship for them and appear ing to lend a helping hand. The Mail presumes that these gentlemen may succeed in attaining a reputation at home for extreme concern about guarding the strong box of the State; but it may be also thnt they and their constituents will discover when too late to remedy the evil, that whilst saving a few pennies in one quarter, pounds without num. ber have been sacrificed in another. In conclusion it is suggested that the sooner the Legislature is dissolved, the better. The Whig has an editorial upon the Trans- Alh*- srhany Bank, located in Tazewell county; an inde pendent institution established under the law of last session, which au,thorizes the issue of notee on State Stocks—the Treasurer of Virginia, holding the 6tocks in deposit and giving his certificate of de posit. The Whig gives an explanation of the pro cess by which the bank is made a self-expanding machine, which with really, only $100,000 capital, appears to have the full amount allowed by the charter; and supposes the Treasurer retains the stock for the protection of the Commonwealth ; but somebody must suffer in the course of time— for it is not posible that issues resting on such a ba sis can continue to command the public confidence. The Whig thinks that if possible the operation should be arrested. "If this be the Democratic nostrum for bettering the currency," it says, "the Lord deliver us from it." The Enquirer devotes its editorial columns to the publication of the speech of Mr. Douglas, in the Senate, Jan. 30, on the Nebraska Bill and Missouri Compromise. The End.—Ovid F. Johnson, formerly an influ. ential member of the Democratic party, and |Attor. ney General of the State of Pennsylvania—a man ol acknowledged ability, a good lawyer, an elo quent speaker, and a finished writer —was recently committed to the work house in Washington as a drunkard, and on Saturday last he died. There's an item for a moralist. Editorial Convention.—We observe that some of our exchange papers are advocating the pro priety of a convention of the editors in Virginia, some time during the spring. Staunton and Win chester have each been suggested as convenient for the meeting. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Mrs. MaryJ.Bord, in Troy, New York, on a charge of producing an abortion and causing the death of a young woman named Jesse Wicks, alias Mary Lee. The details of the case are not given, but it is said to be unsurpassed by any similar case on record. Sons of Temperance.—The January session of the Grand Division wss held in Romney, commenc ing on the 2Tjth ult. and continuing two days. Thirty one Divisions were represented, and there were a grand procession and a number of speeches, before the body adjourned. News has been received at Aspinwall that three of the engineering party sent out by the English Go vernment to survey the canal over the Isthmus of Darien had been barbarously murdered on their arrival by the natives. The Crystal Palace, it is said, proves a total fail ure. On an examination into the condition of the company, it is found that the capital stock and all the receipts of the company have been spent, leav ing it in debt to the amount of $120,000. The diamond ring, presented by M. Bedinl to the mayor's clerk, in New York, is advertised for sale to the highest bidder, the proceeds to be applied to the Protestant orphan asylum. We learn from the Petersburg Democrat that the little old man who diddled Mr. Blitz, at City Pointi out of money and cigars, and forged at least two notes, has been discharged. Nathaniel W, Hutchinson, a daguerreotypist, committed suicide in New York last week by stab bing himself. Ckntkaz. Railkoad.—The rail* upon the Central Road are now laid within abont a quarter of a mile of Staunton, and the depot is nearly completed. By late arrivals from California, we have receiv" ed file* of the Daily Courier, (J. M. Crane's paper,) to the latest dates. In the case of the Commonwealth vs. James H. Beach, tried at Fairfax Court House last week, (he verdict was sot aside, and a new trial granted. Thfe Farmer's Friend, published at Union, Monroe county, calls upon country merchants to purchase their supplies to Richmond. Mew Dim.-The Staunton Messenger appears in a handsome new typographical suit, which great* ly improves its appearance. Max Maretzak's opera company was meeting with much succeas to Havana, at last accounts. Several cases oi cholera have recently occurred to Hooston, Texas. uis Stated tftat Higginbotham, who poisoned Ms wife, ia fcubaea arm*. RICHMOND, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14. 1854 RICHMOND. One at the editor* of the Staunton Vindicator, who recently visited our eitjr, urge# upon Mi read er*, In view of the advantage* possessed by Rich mond a* a produce market, the propriety of deal ing here in preference to any other place. He speak* of the present condition and future pros pects of Richmond as follow*: Richmond is rapidly improving. On every •quare, you soe some evidence of progress and re form. In a few year*, if our Legislator* do not ad journ with their thumb* in their mouth*, she will be in direct connection with the ocean on one tide, and the Ohio river on the Other, by a line of improvement* through the heart Of the State. She will then become the great receptacle into which the va*t trade of the West, seeking an Eaatern outlet to market, will be deposited. Truly her fu ture i* a bright one. and glad are we, that the en terprise and liberality of the capital are about to be crowned with a glorious fruition. We may here very properly renew the sugge tion heretofore made, that our merchants uae every means in their power to extend their acquaintance with the people of the Valley. There i* no better way of doing this than by advertising liberally.— Advertising i* the great secret of success in busi sine*s, after aU. - Walker's Expedition.—We have heretofore given a full summary of event* in Lower Califor nia, embracing the proclamation of "President" Walker. We find in papers more recently re (Mived, memorials from various residents of Lower asking the protection of Walker, of which the following is a specimen: To Col. Don J!'m. Walker, Santa Toman: Sib—The undersisned. Mexican citizens, settled on thin frontier of I.ower California, most respect fully address themselves to you saying : That considering our lives, our families and our interests endangered by the present critical state of this frontier, we solicit you as the commander of the forces which have taken possession of this frontier, to grant us full protection and guarantee for our persons and properties, binding ourselves to return not to take any part in the present political affairs of this Territory. The bearer of this memorial, Don Augustin Horn, is empowered by us. Santiago Domineo Arce; at the request of Fran cisco Zazueta, A.Horn; Francisco Zapata; at the request of Manuel Malencia, A. Horn; Manuel Diaz ; for Dona Marina Vidal, Manuel Diaz ; Jose Maria B Lugo ; Miguel Osio. We make the following extract from the San Francisco Picayune: The Filibusters will doubtless hold on to their present acquisitions until by reiniorcements they leel themselves competent to essay the consumma tion of their ulterior objects when they will enter upon the real theatre of war and danger, by ma king a descent on Sonora. Meantime squads of adventurers are constantly leaving this port for the new Republic, and we hear runors ot the in tended embarcation of large reinforcements within a few days. The presence of Col. Walking in this city, and other officers of the little army, indicates that efforts are being made to facilitate the designs ot the invading lorces. What may be the ultimate result of the adventure is, of course, purely a mat ter of speculation. The New Orleans Fire.—We copy from the N - O. Delta the following additional particulars #f the late destructive fire in that city. Shortly after her arrival, the Belcher was dis' covered to be on fire, and the flames communica" ted so rapidly, that it was quite difficult for the pas' sengejs who were spending the night on board to escape. Mrs. Carlisle, the wife of "the captain, who was confined to her bed from sickness, leaped with great heroism from the hurricane deck with her child in her arms, and fortunately suffered no in jury. All the passengers lost their baggage.— There were nearly forty slaves on board, who were on the lower deck in the after part of the boat, who must have experienced great difficulty in escaping, owing to the smoke and the heavy piles of pro duce. The fire spread thence to other boats, as hereto fore stated. The Delta proceeds : The commotion and excitement among the crowded and closely-wedged boats was prodigious; all of them were getting up steam at the same time. Tnose that were nearest to the boats on tire drop ped out with the current and drew up in the rear of the beats further down. A short distance from the scene of the tire, the Floating Palace of Van Am burgb, tilled with his various and rare collection of animals, was moored. The tumult and noise aroused the wild beasts from the lairs, and caused them to lend their roars to that of the multitude.— We could not but think what an awful scene would have been presented, if the flames, which were sweeping in that direction, had communicated to this prison of so many ferocious brutes. The Fire Department were promptly on the spot, and contributed largely to prevent the flames spreading either upon the wharves, where there is a vast amount of produce heapad up, or to the ad joining boats. Their exertions were continued to the very last, until about 10 o'clock to-day, when the wreck ot the last of the burned boats, after issu ing a thick volume of smoke, with a low rumbling, bubbling sound, as if some inflammable materials were exploding, went slowly down out of sight, and left on the smooth, quiet waters, scarcely a momento of the splendid new boats which, but a few hours before, had occupied the space. Shooting Challenge Extbaordinarv.—John Travis, the well known professor of the pistol, over the Shsdes, In Perdido street has, says the New Or leans Picayune, accepted the folowing remarkable challenge from Mr. Bertin L. Rhodes : Rhodes bets Travis #1,000 to 8800 that he (Travis) cannot, within ninety days, produce a living man who, standing thirty-six feet from the said Travis' will allow him (Travis; to shoot with a pistol (off hand) an apple placed on the said livine man's head—the apple not to exceed four inches in cir cumference. The said Trans is to have three shots at the apple, and must hit the apple once to win the match. If he does not hit the apple, or it he hits the man, Rhodes wins. The match it to come otl'within ninety days, and within live miles of the city of New Orleans. The San Joaquin (Cal.,) Republican announces the death of J. 11. Carson, a native afWarren coun Va. He was one of the earlier polneers to Cali fornia, and gave name to the stream known as Car son's creek, which has became famous tor the gold gathered in and around it, Mr. C. was a member elect from the county of Calaveras. A project for the sale ot all the right of the city of Petersburg in the Appomato* Railroand, with all the fixtures, to the Southside Railroad Company, has been adopted by the Common Council of Pet tersburg. The sum is fixed at $175,000. Possession to be giTen on the first ot May next. Green Deebong was found dead In his bed in Win cheater, last Thursday morning. Awrci. Dkath.—A most tragical tale Is told o f soldiers of a detachment o* the rath Xegiment, now stationed at Toronto, and a black man, who gel into a boat with the soldiers in the intention ol deserting, and getting oyer to Crab I sland, and I nan thence, as opportunity offered to America. After a while, the wind TaUin* fllw were driven oat of their co « r <*. and so ramin^d in the open boat for seywal days without food or water At length one of the soldiers proposed to draw lots, that one should be killed to furakh fo«s for the others.

OKDKRB OF TH* DAT. Mr. Thomas called tor the orders of the day.— The first was a bill concerning District Free Schools in the county of Henry. A long discussion ensued thereon, and without coming to a vote. The Senate adjourned. HOUSE OF DELEGATES. Monday, Feb. 13th 1854. A communication from the Senate announced the passage of sundry bills, which were appropriately referred. Committees made reports. The Speaker laid before the House a communi cation from the Governor, with regard to the mat ter of the application for the pardon of 5. A. Smith, and the part Col. Morgan had taken in it. The Governor stated that Col. M. had recommended the pardoning ot Smith for his good conduct in the pen itentiary, on the ground that it would have a eood effect and strengthen the discipline and promote good order among the convicts. The Governor in ferred that the reasons urged left no room to im pugn the motives or character of Col. M. in any manner. The communication was referred to the committee on the subject. The Speaker announced the special committee already ordered by the Hou3e to report upon the pe titions relative to prohibiting the sale of ardent spirits. NORFOLK AND PETERSBURG ROAD. The first order of the day being the bill increasing the capital stock of the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad, and requiring the Board of Public Works to subscribe for three-fifths of the increase, was taken up. Mr. Mai,lory addressed the House in conclusion of his speech in behalf of the bill, and was followed by Mr. Cherrv, who stated that there some objec tions to the road in the matter ot a connection be tween it and the Seaboard road, and also to bridg ingthe Elizabeth river as was proposed; but as those objectionable conditions were enacted in a for'ner bill,>he would not make them the occasion of opposition to the present, but would vote for it with pleasure. The bill was then passed by the handsome rote fo 102 to 18 —(even Dr. Yerby voting for it!) COVINGTON AND OHIO RAILROAD BILL. The second order being the Covington and Ohio Railroad bill, being taken up, the vote was taken without debate, and resulted as follows : Ayf.s—Messrs.

The bill being defeated for the want of thp Con stitutional majority, Mr. Jackson who did not vote upon the bill, moved to reconsider the vote by which it was rejected; but there being) questions raised as to his right to move the reconsideration, it was moved by Mr. White of Hanover, who voted against the bill. Upon this motion Messrs. Jackson, Bba.vnon and Haymond addressed the House to define their posi tions on the subject. Their main ground of refusal to support the Covington and Oh'o bill was an al ledged charge Qf neglect of the interests of the North Western part of the State in the appropriations to Internal Improvements. Mr. Gar.vett got the floor, and on his motion [the House adjourned. Tragic Affair in Tennessee.—A difficulty oc curred at Fiafierville, near Memphis, Tena, on the 2t>th ult, between aDr Leake and a notorious des perado named Mitchell, during which the ibrmer was bo dreadfully stabbed that at last account* his lite waa despaired of. Mitchell fled, but was pur sued by a large party of neighbors of Dr. Leake, among whom were Major C. H. Slarke, 8. A. Leake, Esq., Dr. Pride, and F. A. Payne, Constable, who rpet him on the road, a few miles out from Holly Springe, Miss. He turned round and fled as soon as he saw them, but his horse being almost broken down they overtook him as he rode into the town. Mitchell had a bowie-knife in his hand, and swore that no person should take him. His pursuers call ed to some persons in the streets to arrest him.— Some person caught hold of his hong, when Major Starke rode up and shot him in the Hie with a shot gun. He died soon afterwards from the wounds inflicted. Major Starke gave himself up to the authorities of Holly Springs immediately, and was acquitted. Major Starke is a wealthy planter, near Memphis, and is spoken of as a most honorable and high minded gentleman. The royal sledge of the Russian Czar, which ha* been put into requisition by the abundant snow in Europe, Is drawn by two gray horses,across whose backs are thrown leopard-skins; in the net-work over the harness are suspended small circular bells, mounted with feathers, besides larger bells, which produce three different note*.
