THE DAILY DISPATCH The circulation of the Daily Dispatch cxcecdi considerably that of all'tha Dally paper* of Richmond oomfclned. RICHMOND, VA WEDNESDAY MORNINO. FEBRUARY 15. 1#54 gPt RIT OF THE PRESS. * ' The Enquirer alludes to a sugge*tion thrown oat by that paper at on early period of the Legislature, that while no additional expenditure should be in curred on account of original schemes, the availa ble energy and capital of the.State Bhould be con centrated on the great work* now in progress. Al though no particular works were specified, there was one which, of all the schemes in the State, was thought most deserving the confidence of the pub lie. namely, the Covington and Ohio Road. The Enquirer admits that it wns mistaken in its opinion of the temper and sagacity of tl»e Legislature; for while there has been no difficulty in procuring ap propriations to plank roads and turnpikes, a great work of State concern is left to live only in the con ception of its projector. The Covington and Ohio Rttilroad hill, through no default of its friends, has encountered successive defeats in the Legislature, and unless the proposition now pending for the reconsideration of the subject prevail, we must abandon all hope of its ultimate passage. — The Covington and Ohio Road is the keystone of the arch—if that falls, the whole system ot public improvement in Virginia must tumble to the earth. All other works depend'on this. Unless they have access to the Ohio, the vast outlay in their construc tion will bejlittle better than a* idle waste. If we abandon the Covington and Ohio road, we destroy the system and coherence of our policy of public improvement— we leave'the branches without a trunk to supply strength and vitality. The En quirer concludes with the following paragraph: We trust the Legislature will reconsider its opin ion and reverse its decision One member has made the unblushing confession , that his conduct is determined by bargain and intrigue; we would tain believe, that higher considerations control the action of the Legislature. We hope members will rise above local prejudices and petty combinations and will strive to promote the interests of the State without reference to schemes of individual ambition and advancement. fit is presumed that the article above noticed was written previous to the vote in the House on Mon day night.] The Examiner has a leader on the banking sys tem of Virginia, alluding, in the course of remark, to the proposition to recharter the State hanks. — Considerations ol policy enjoin a postponement of the subject until tie winter of 1855. The European war will tend to inflate every branch of business, particularly banking. To grant a new lease of life for thirty years to the great banks at such a time, would give a fillip to expansion, to which the in' flations consequent upon the war of 1812 would be prudence ar.d moderation itself. On the contrary, if the charters are withheld, the banks will keep their sails furled, their hatches down, and all things ready for winding up their aff airs if the charters should be refused in 1855. Inflation would be pre vented, and contraction and prudence would be en forced. The Examiner is in favor of the appoint ment of a commissioner, armed with visitorial pow ers over the "independent banks," and with pow er to report, at any moment of time or period of the year, upon any bank he may think proper to visit. The Whig replies to au article in the Staunton Vindicator, charging it with wishing to make Rich, mond the grand focus of trade, whilst all others may sink for want of necessary suppport. The Whig thinks its case a hard one—charged here with trying to ruin Richmond, and elsewhere with wish ing to ruin all the rest of the State for the aggran dizement of Richmond. The Whig desires to make the metropolis the centre of all improve ments of the State, but does not believe that would tend to injure any portion thereof. It thinks it possible, by a judicious system ot improvements, to make the interest of every section of the State identical—to bring about a oneness of feeling and interest in all the parts—and to make each and every improvement contribute to the aggrandize ment of the whole. It is the only means by a thorough Virginia feeling can be created in all the borders ot the Commonwealth. The Whig argues that the Central Road, constructed on a wide gauge, while it would benefit Staunton, would also contribute to the general prosperity of the State. In its second article, the Whig alludes to its own course on the Nebraska bill, with respect to the leading feature of which it never had any objection; and proceeds to compliment Mr. Doug' las, who has exhibited a rare and commendable fearlessness, which forms an enviable contrast to the conduct of Mr. Everett. The leader of the Penny Post is a sketch of St. Valentine, concluding with an allusion to the custom of sending valentines, which it says, is very agree able and harmless when kept within proper limits ; but which is too often abused, and made the instru ment of wounding the feelings of individuals, by coarse allusions to their infirmities or peculiarities. We observe also several other editorials, one of which strongly condemns the proposed change in the corporate powers in the town of Bath. The Mail presents an array of reasons why the South should sustain the Nebraska bill of Judge Douglas. It is proper that Southern inca should show not only that they have rights under the Cons titution, but that they mean to have those rights respected. In another article the Mail favors the passage ot the bill that has been reported by a Se lect Committee of the Senate to reduce the heavy tax on the agencies of Life Insurance Companies of other States, or rather to put an ad valorem tax on their receipts, and proceeds to show why Life I usurance in our State should be encouraged. Hon. John Y. Mason.—We have heretofore al luded to the reception of Mr. Mason, our Minister, at the Court of France. It ia stated that when he presented hit credentials to the Emperor, he was introduced to the Empress, who conversed with him in English for about half an hour, and aitcrwards forwarded an invitation for the grand ball which took place at the Tuilleries the following evening. One of the imperial carriages was sent to convey the Ambassador to the Tuilleries and re conducted him back to his hotel. Mr. Mason ap peared in the Court dress heretofore worn on offi cial occasions by American Ministers, which was gratifying to the Emperor and Empress and all others present Singula* Accident.—The following accide* has been before noticed in our columns; but for the purpose of correcting some telegraphic errors, we give the correct version from the Picayune of the 6tfa. One of the wounded men has since died. About dark last evening, a very serious and pro bably fatal accident took place on board the steaui - ! boat Chenoweth, now lying at the levee. A passen ger who had comedown the river from Mississippi paid one of the cabin boys, named VVm. H. Martin, /. m. c., two dimes to take his baggage ashore from the boat. Among the baggage waa a loaded rifle, which carried a half-ounce balL The waiter, in taking the baggage ashore accidentally hit the ham mer of the nfle against the chime of a barrel, when the rifle exploded, and the ball passed through the head of Prask Meyers, through the neck of another ffli, and entered the shoulder of a third person. oCtbeperaoM Injured were taken to the Chari ty Hospital, and it is thought they will not survive. The wounded men were deck hands on the boat. RICHMOND, WEDNESDAY, FEB SEHERAL ASSEMBLY OF VIRGINIA. SENATE. Feb. 14,1854. A large number of bill* were reported from va rious standing Committee*.

The vote was reconsidered on motion of MrJ Tate, and the bill amended on motiou of that gen tleman.] NORTH WESTERN RAILROAD. A bill concerning the North Western Railroad, was taken up, and an amendment proposed thereto by Mr. Turner elicited a long discussion. On motion of Mr. White, the bill was laid on the table. The Senate resolved to meet on and after Thurs day at 11 o'clock. On motion of Mr. Johnson, the Senate adjourn ed. HOUSE OF DELEGATES. Tuesday, Feb. 14,1854. Committees made reports: The House considered and adopted a number of resolutions of inquiry, And received and referred petitions—none of very general interest. The unfinished business, being the consideration of the bill to provide for the completion of the Covington and Ohio Railroad came up in order, pending the motion of Mr. Barnes of Marion, for its indefinite postponement. Mr. Barnes spoke briefly in favor of his motion, and was replied to by Mr. Smith of Kanawha—af ter which the indefinite postponement was rejected by the House without a division. The vote ordering the bill to its engrossment was then reconsidered by a vote of 101 to 29—and the bill wa3 then laid on the table. The Senate bill amending the charter of the State Stock Bank of Richmond, was taken up, and the question being on its passage, it was supported by Messrs. Mayo", White and Anderson, and op posed by Messrs. Rutherfoobd, Mallory, Tom lin, Kemper and Campbell, and rejected—so to 7C>. [The bill reduced the minimum capital from $100,000, to $50,000.] The bill providing for the removal of free negroes from the Commonwealth, and establishing certain general regulations with regard to them, was taken up and made the order of the day for Saturday next. The bill increasing the capital stock of the Fred ericksburg and Gordonsville Railroad Company, was made the order of the day for Friday next ELECTION OK SUPERINTENDENT OF THE PENI TENTIARY. The joint order of the day for the election of a Superintendent of the Penitentiary, cams up tor execution. Mr. Garnett, from the Special Committee ap pointed to investigate the conduct of Charles S. Morgan in the matter of the application of S. A. Smith for pardon, made a report, accompanied by the evidence taken before the committee. The Com mittee in their report, while they exculpate the mo tives of Col. Morgan, declare that they deem his conduct is justly liable to censure, as from his posi tion he ought not to have used his influence to sway the mind of the Governor in the case. They con fess that his motives were pure, and that he was ac tuated by humunesympathies. The report and the evidence were ordered to be printed. Mr. Tomlin moved to (postpone the election of Superintendent on the ground that he had not read the evidence, and wanted to do so before casting his vote for or against Col. Morgan. The House refused to postpone, and after a dis cursive debate the motion to postpone was again renewed and again rejected. Messrs. Haymond and Wallace who defended Col. Morgan with much zeal from any imputation upon his motives, or his fidelity to the public interests, expressing their willingness to acquiesce in the postponement. Before this discussion, however, Mr. Mayo had nominated Col. Morgan for re-election and Mr. Carter, of Lee and Scott, had nominated John W. M. Ely, the Delegate from Lee, for the office. A great deal of debate ensued, in which many members participated. Finally it was determined to read the evidence and the Clerk proceeded to do so—and with occasional interruptions, had pro gressed within a page or so of the conclusion— when, On motion of Mr. McKenzie, the House ad journed. evening session. The evening session was devoted to the confide' ration of bills in their early stages, and nothing of general interest was definitively acted on. Destitoctivk Fire at Richmond. Kknti-cky.— The Lexington Observer learnß troiri astagepßg eenger that on Monday last, the 6th inst, a fire broke out in Richmond, in the hardware store of J. W. Gilbert, which destroyed a whole square con sisting of eighteen houses, among them the dry goods store of W. Halloway, Mr. Wheritt's jewel ry store, S. K. Turner's dry goods store, and Kurtz'* large furnish ins: establishment. Upon all the prop erty destroyed there was but little or no insurance. Piron, the French author, having been taken up by the watchmen of the night in the streets of Paris, was carried on the following morning before the lieutenant of the police, who haughtily interrogated him concerning his business or profession. "I am a poet, sir," said Piron. •Oh! oh! a poet, are you?" enid the magistrate; "I have a brother who is a poet." "Then we are even," said Piron, «for I have a brother who is a fool" Promotion.—Mr. Thomas A. Bain, son of Geo. M. Bain, of Portsmouth, has been promoted to the command ot the ship Alexander, owned in Balti more. Mr. Bain is just 21 years of age, and has worked his way up in the short space of five year*, from a boy before the mitt to hi* present position. i- The Tappahannock Gazette think* if the Legisia ture would give them a railroad to the Junction, in a short time Tappahannock would strike a mark above Pettrxbujij, Richmond and Fredericksburg, in the way of giving prices for produce. Well, there s nothing like having a good opinion of one's self—Fred. Herald. We learn that twelve enterprising gentlemen of this place have recently purchased a Lead Mine in Albemarle.

Fin* I* Essex.—We regret to learn that the residence of John M. Garnett, Esq., near Loretto, was destroyed by fire on Tuesday last. Mr. G. was enabled to saro almost his entire household furni ture, yet the loss on hi* dwelling, which was unin sured, is quite heavy.—Fred. Her. The freight boat Clinton, which pa«sed over the dam below the month of North Hirer, and through the Balcony Pall*, two or three week* ago, ha* been got out from the place where fe hung—without in jury, but with very great difficulty—and will soon be in service again.

Tonic Al*.—Messrs. Dudley & Co., of this city, are furnishing a very fine article of Ale, designed particularly for invalid*. It haa tonic properties of a peculiar kind, and said to be very agreeable to the taate. Those who desire any tiling of the sort are referred to Dudley & Co.'s advertisement in this paper.

Barnun ia engaged in writing out his own life and adventures. It is suggested by a northern paper that although Barnum is a very clever fellow, half a million persons are ready to "take his life " the first opportunity. It is stated that Ex-President Fillmore is about to be married to Miss E. P., only daughter of a gal lant U. S. officer deceased, and a lady of rare tal. ent, superior accomplishments and large for. tune. The advertisement announcing the sale of the Bedi JBiamond ring, in the New York papers, wa g a hoax. On repairing to the designated place, the would-be purchasers fonnd! they were themselve g gold. Lectobe.—Mr. John R. Thompson, of this city lectured in Library Hall, Petersburg, on Monday night The Democrat says: The lecture more than satisfied the expectations which Mr. T.'s known talent had excited. The audience listened with the most marked attention, and indeed we have ■ rarely heard an address with which we were more amused and instructed. Such an insight into the grand old days of yore, we feel assured the people of Petersburg have never before heard. Sales of Real Estate.—The Fredericksburg Herald says: The " Fall Hill" farm of Dr. R. L. McGuire, ad joining Fredericksburg, was sold at public sale last week, for $2,780. It contained 192 acres, accord ing to the old survey. Rev. J. A. Billiogsby, of the county, was the purchaser. The Stafford farm advertised by E.
