THE STEAMER GEORGIA Several accounts of the disaster to the steamer Georgia are published in the N. York Times, some of them expressing much [indignation that such a large number of persons were sent to tea in a rot ten vessel. As the matter attracts general interest, we copy the following brief account of the scenes on board during the storm : "Throughout this day, (the !>th of February,) there was a strong wind from 8. S. E., and we were under steam just enough to ke»>p her head to it: but altliouhg only a common eale, the ship tailored heavily. At about 4 o'clock the gale broke, and 1 went to bed. I was soon startled by one of the pas sengers calling me and reporting the ship full of wa ter; and indeed the cabin presented tnat appear ance. The women and children, together with the men. presented _ a dense mass crowded together praying and calling on the Almighty for protection. I found my way through the crowd as beef I could, and went forward to survey the wreck. "The scene that presented Itself was frightful; the whole bow was store in. The upper deck was crushed in a thousand pieces, and lay in a mass down on the se cond deck; the head and cutwater were gone. Her stem alone remained, stripped of everything that had ever been attached to it, looking like a naked post; her bulwark timbers and piankshear were broken oft' as smooth as if it was done by design; and every time the ship pitched, the water came in by tons, and the second deck was flooded. Daylight soon came. The pumps were all at work, and gangs organized for balling. The captain coolly thought all was right, and gave orders to Mr. Barker to do all that could,be done; audthat all was to cut away the broken plank and timbers, shove in pillows and mattresses between the timbers, and cut away the larboard anchor, get the yards down on deck, nail canvass over the heads of the timbers, and forming a breakwater out of canvass and plank to keep out all the water we could. The exertions of Mr. Bar ker, the first officer, were incessant and laborious, and deserving of the highest praise. Fortunately, the gale had about ended bef ore we met with the accident; otherwise nothing could have saved us; but by ten o'clock Thursday, the sea got to be smooth. Her head was got to the westward, and being very smooth we were enabled to carry a good head of steam; and at 1 o'clock, P. M., Friday, the 10th, we made the capes of Virginia; and by the fortunate circumstance of having good weather, we were till saved from a frightful death. 'Die accident happened in lat. 34 dear., lon. 72deg. 54 min. Koszta not Quite Deserted.—lt now appears that Martin Koszta has determined to abandon the daguerreotype enterprise. We learn from the N. Y. Herald that Mr. Kedzie, a generous attorney of Chicago, Illinois, having seen a report of Koszta's destitute condition, wrote him a letter with a pro mise to support him until he may become sufficient ly acquainted with American law to open an office for himself. Koszta is said to have accepted the offer; and having procured fifty dollars through the same gentleman's liberality, was to have left New York for Chicago last Monday. Meanwhile, we learn from the foreign news that Captain Ingraham was having a grand ovation from the Genoese peo ple on account of the Koszta case. Desperate Leaps.—Hugh Sloan, the pugilist, while on his way to Chester County, Pa., in charge of a sheriff, last week, leaped from the cars while they were going at the rate of thirty miles an hour. The Sheriff followed immediately after, and being but little hurt, he ordered Sloan to stand or he would shoot him. Sloan yielded quitely, and though he was somewhat bruised, he walked with the Sheriff towards Philadelphia. When Sloan was asked why he yielded so quietly, he remarked to the Sheriff, that he thought if he was fool enough to jump from the cars after him, he wass fool enough to shoot. The leaps were desperate, and the won der is both were not killed. Marshal Wynkoop, of Philadelphia, on Friday last proceeded to Lancaster, and re-arrested Gen. Ford and Judge Vandersmitb, along with one Wal ter G. Evans, an Alderman of that place, who are charged with frauds upon the Pension Bureau.— The parties immediately petitioned for a writ of habeas corpus to Judge Long, who granted it, and a hearing was had at once. The Marshal protested against the interference, but the Judge finally bound the parties over to appear and answer on the first day of the approaching term of the U. S. District Court in Philadelphia, and then discharged them from the Marshal's custody. Col. Wynkoop again protested, and declaring himself obstructed by force yielded up his prisoners. Electioneering — Solomon Stockpole, jr., puts forth liis claims for the office of Sheriff, though the columns of the Monongalia Mir ror. We extract the following brief allusion to him self and the Stockpoles in general: One word as to myself—ime nun of your colledge breads. Wus born and raised between the handles of an old True American plow and never seed en ny thing tel i was morenur 16 years of age. Feller sitisens, the Stackpole family is very nu mersome in this section, and 1 expect will be well represented in the contention. My advise is, Eyes right! Dress up! Solomon Stackpole expects every man to du his duty. Remember Paoli, and what our four fathers fit and bled, &c. for. Stheet Commissioner Resigned.—Mr. Henry Arcularius, who has held the office of Street Com missioner of New York for some time past, baa re signed his post. It is to be regretted, says the He rald, that he did not leave a cleaner record of his acts upon the books or the streets of the city. Cockt or iKQuiaT.—The proceedings of the Mill, tary Court of Inquiry, in New York, are getting to be quite interesting. Serious charges have been made against Col Gates, but as the defence has not yet introduced any testimony, it will be well for the public to reserve their judgment Indeed, itis said that Capt Gardiner, who has testified so strongly against Col. Gates, will have to answer some serious charge*, which the Colonel, anon, is to present against him. The Bubolaxy Cas*.—Wlnfield Butcher, Ro bert Evans, Amy Butcher and a boy, were exam ined In Petersburg on Tuesday, on the charge ol' burglary. The two Butchers and Bob Evana were aent on lor further trial,and the boy was discharged. Mr. Schildeschiem, in whose store some of the stolen goods were found, was required to find se curity for his appearance to answer the charge of receiving stolen goods. Daniel Sowder was recently found dead in the road in Floyd county. An inquest was held and ft verdict rendered that "the said Sowder came to his death by casualty and not by violence." The Wheeling Intelligencer estimates the loss of property "by the explosion at the Virginia Paper Mills, last Saturday, at SUOOO. A%oy named Israel Mobley, wofchad sought a night's lodging on the ,op of the boilers, was killed. John Mornnt and John Ford, charged with com mitting a morder in Savannah, have been arrest ed and imprisoned in New York to await a reqoiaC tion from the Governor of Georgia. Jeremiah Lao* has been fouad guilty of man slaughter, to Mew Tort, to causing the death of Mr, Hyer, by striking him on the head with • cart rang.

A long discussion arose on a proposition to inde finitely postpone the above bill—made by Mr. riHACMLro*i>—in which Messrs. Axblkb, J owns and Skackslfobs participated. The proposition was negatived—Ayes Noes &. covers fob kinth ciacurr. The House amendment to the bill concerning the Courts of the Ninth Circuit, was concurred in. repobts or OOKMITON. A great many bills were reported from the i--|%nding Committees; among them, A bill authorizing the appointment of a clerk to the banking department in the Treasury depart ment Resolutions of enquiry were proposed; among others the following; By Mr.X'AicpßELL—lncorporating an Indepen dent Bank, with a capital of $100,000, in the town of Farmville. By Mr. PASKBB-Repealing the law requiring the inspection of guano. By Mr. llabbis—Amending the charter of the Central Bank at Staunton, so as to enlarge the num ber of directors.

Mr. Campbell presented the petition of 76 citi zens of Lunenburg county, prayine that certain slaves emancipated by the will of David M. Dos well be permuted to select William Doswell as their master. Mr. Baldwin ottered a resolution that the Senate I would, every day, take a recess from two and a half to four o'clock, P. M., which, on motion of Mr. Catlett, was laid on the table. SMALL NOTES. The remainder of the day was consumed on the bill for the suppression of the circulation of notes of a less denomination than five dollars. Mr. Johnson's substitue—to authorize the Banks of the Commonwealth to issue small notes—wa* rejected—Ayes 17, Noes 2li. A motion to indefinitely postpone, made by Mr. Thomas, was voted down —Ayes 16, Nees 27. Mr. Harris moved to reconsider the vote by which the imprisonment feature was stricken out ol the original bill. The Chair decided that it was first necessary to reconsider the vote on the substitute, which was done—Ayes2B, Noes 11. Mr. H arris then made his motion, and On motion of Mr. Campbell, the Senate ad journed. HOUSE OF DELEGATES. Wednesday, Feb. 15,1854. A communication from the Senate announced the passage of sundry bills which were appropriately referred. Committees made report*. Mr. Brown, ot King George and Stafford, moved to refer the report and testimony in the case of the Bank of the Old Dominion to the Committee on Banks, with instuctions to enquire whether the charter of the Bank should be repealed or amended, on account ot any violations of the charter which may appear from the testimony. This motion was carried after abrief debate, by a large majority. On motion of Mr. Garnett the Committee of Banks was instructed to inquire whether there have been any violations of their charters by any of the old Banks or the independent Banks of the State and to report what course the Legislature should adopt to punish or prevent them in fu ture. The House then took up the order of the day, be ing the bill for the extension ot the Orange and Alexandria Railroad to Lynchburg, and a subscrip tion ofjthree-fifths by the State to the increased stock. The question was upon the passage of the bill. A discussion ensued and continued until the hour of adjournment. Messrs. Lee and Dean* *upp ort ed and Mr. Martz opposed the bill. Seduction in High Lif*.—We published yes terday a brief statement to the effect that the notori. ous Madame Restell had been again arrested in New York on the charge of producing abortion. The New York Herald of Tuesday, soys: "We alluded yesterday to a complaint pending be fore Justice Stuart, charging Madame Restell, or 162, Chamber's street, with producing an abortion on the person of a young woman whose name we had not learned. Since then, however, we have seen the affidavit, and find that the party complaining is one Cordelia A. Grant, a native of Portland, Maine, 4 very pretty young woman of twenty-two years of age, whose parents, we understand, are still residents of that place. "it now appears from the facts in this exciting case, that Mr. Oeorge R. Shackford, a wealthy gentleman occupying a splendid mansion at Fordham, Westches ter county, became, some seven years ago, acquainted with Miss Grant, while on a vist East, and by a mutu al arrangement entered into between them, she agreed to elope with bim. They went direct, by pack et, to New Orleans, where he represented her as his lawful wife, and in the like manner, they travelled to various parts of the country and then returned to Mew York, where they took up their abode. Since this time, it appear* by the sworn affidavit made by Miss Grant, she has occupied towards him the position of a kept mistress, and at hia instance has suffered no less than five abortions. Three of them have been the work of Madame Restell, and the other two were operations done in Massachusetts. Up to a few days ago, she was acting as his housekeeper, at his man sion in Westchester county; bnt some disagreement having taken place between them, en the asramptiou that he intended to abandon her, and she, fearing to be left destitate in the world, proposed a settlement by asking the sum of $6,M0 for a clearance and final separation. This proposition was disregarded by him; hence, in view of enforcing her demand, the com plaint before the Police Justice was preferred, and the whole matter exposed to the public. "Mr. Shackford is a tine, gentlemanly looking man, of about thirty-five years of age, a ritive of Philadel phia. He is said te be worth $100,000, and is concern ed in an extensive wool bouse in Pearl street. His mother resides in Philadelphia, and is estimated to be worth $400,000. Mr. Shacaford is said to be her only child." Miss Grant's affidavit, in support Of the foregoing ♦acta, is published in lull in the New York papers but as yet no corroborative testimony baa been ta ken. Meantime the magistrate leaned a warrant for the arrest of Mr. Shackford, but he voluntarily ap peared in court, fai company with his counsel, ex. Recorder Tallmadge, and surrendered himself to answer the charge preferred against him. The no. torious ftestell was arretted by the police, and she now stands charged with the comaaission of a felo ny, which is punishable by imprisonment in the State Prison for a term not exceeding three Tear* nor less than one in the Penitentiary. CoNTKsn-LATXD Majuuaok.-The lady to whom it Is said ex-President Fillmore is about to be mar ried, is Miss Elizabeth Porter, of Niagara Falls, only daughter of the late Geo. Peter B. Porter, a hero of the war of 1812, and Secretary of War under J«i»p Quiscy Adams. The Tampa Herald of the Ist test, learns by the antral of the steamer J. T. Hprague, that four of the Indian Delegattoe le the Seminolea in Florida, have visited Billy Bowiegs at his headquarters, and that be has requested an interview with the eaSns Delegation, a part of which remained at Carloosa. hatchia The whole number are now in the Indian country, but of their success nothing fa known.

The result is T* to be seen, Wit the Whig thinks the money will beexpended without accomplishing the object in r>ew; and that as Virginia is about to be predpi tated in the Career, begs the members of the Lcgiilattirc to pdfac before the deed is done, sttempt to devise some means to shield ua from the erila which afflict our sister States. The Whig in conclusion urges the abolishing of the Board of Pub. lie Works, as the only alternative to save the pub lic morals, the public credit, and to insure the suc cess of all our improvements. The Enquirer, alluding to the fact that Mr. Jef ferson's participation in the enactment ot the ordi nance of 17(37 has given rise to the opinion, or at least color to the assertion, that he was an advo" cat® of the restrictive policy in regard to slavery, gives extracts from the writings of Mr. Jefferson, furnishing abundant evidence of his hostility to any geographical restriction on slavery; and any inter, vention by the Federal Government in the social relations of the Statec. The principle of the Mis. souri Compromise, which the friends of the con stitution are now seeking to abrogate, encountered from him an early and vehement opposition. We also find in the Enquirer the following state ment, showing the composition of the present House of Delegates: It may not be uninteresting to our reader* to know the professional character of the pre*ent House of Delegates. It will be seen from the following table that the number of "gentlemen," and the number of "editors" i* equal—two of each. There are 83 Farmer*, 26 Lawyer*, 18 Physician*, 13 Merchants, 2 Editor*, 4 Mar ufrcturers, 1 Machi nist, 1 Printer, 1 Millwright, 1 Miller, and 2 Gentle men. 11l are married, 28 single, and 13 widowers. 18 are Methodists, 11 Baptists, 8 Presbyterians, 3 Episcopalians, 4 Disciples, 2 Lutheran*, and 1 Ger man Reformed. Gen. Smith of Kanawha, Is the oldest, (65) and Mr. Sinclair ofPrince William, the youngest, (23.) 25 are under 30, 55 between 30 and 40, 35 between 40 and 50,33 between 50 and 60, and 4 over 60.

The Mail has an article on Sectarian Colleges.— While objections to sectarian organization* are pal pable, it would be difficult to find another spring of action, sufficiently strong to keep in motion the great machinery of education. The Maii discusses this subject at considerable length. An American Steam** for Turkey. —It i# re ported that the steamer now building in New York according to the plan of General Norris, of Phila delphia, which is intended to make the run to Eu rope in six days, is *old to the Sultan of Turkey.— Shei* nearly completed. The price paid by the Sultan, it!« said, i* 8730,000, without any trial.- Maryland.—Hon. James A. Pearce, a* before announced, was on Tuesday elected U. 8. Senator from Maryland, for *ix years from the 4th of March 1855, when hi* present tefm expire*. He r?seived 58 out of the 95 vo.es cart. Dr. Dennis Claude, Whig, was on the same day elected Treasurer.— The Hous*has amended the Prohibitory Liquor Law Bill by postponing its operation till the Ist of May, 1856, and providing for taking the aenae of the people by a direct vote for or against it at the general eleotion in 1855. Destructive Fires.—At M'Minneville, Tenn., on the sth inst, a fire broke out in the third story of Farner's factory, which was burned down ; ma chinery and building a total los*. The. fire ia sup posed to have originated from a lot of waste cotton in the room, which ignited. Loa* $80,000 to $100," 000. We learn there was no insurance. • s>J£ On the sthinst., there was a large fire atMiami> Missouri; every store in town was burned except one that was under the hill. Four storea and three dwelling*, with the Odd Fellow's Hall, were burn ed. Little insurance. A Parting Compliment.—We learn from the New York papers that a handsome entertainment was given last Monday, on board the steamer Paci fic, by Capt. Nye, to Capt. Creighton, of the ahip Three Bells. It was intended simply as a parting compliment from the gallant commander of the Pa cific to a brother Captain whose noble intrepidity and daring conduct have gained for him a world wide celebrity. There was an admirable opportunity for ambi tious sportsmen to display their skill in Wheeling last Sunday. The sky was almoat black for several hours with floekaof pigeons going north, many of them Hew so near the earth that they might have been easily shot on the wing; but the sensible pigeons selected Sunday for their journey, well knowing that they were protected by the laws, both divine and human.

Other accounts say there were but7sopassengers on board, and make no allusion to the shooting.— The Empire City left Norfolk on Tuesday, for Chagres, with the Georgia's passengers. We lean from office order, published in the Petersburg Democrat,that there will henceforth be two mails per day from Petersburg south.

Also, a number of moat valuable Staves, con sisting of a steam engineer, several carpenters, fac tor; hands, and house servants—all of whom are well skilled and familiar with the business to which they have been accustomed. Also, a large assort ment of Tobacco Presses, Screws, Flattening Mills, Machinery of every description,including a fine steam Engine, with circular saws attached; and a large lot of perfectly seasoned Plank, consisting of oak, pop lar, cherry, and button-wood, of proper for the manufacture of all kinds of Tobacco boxes, includinc a number of set* of Carpenters' Tools for making of boxes. Maps of the real estate will be prepared and exhi bited in a few days, at the office of the undersigned. The Tobacco Factories above alluded to, are built i* I the best manneT, upon the most approved plan for convenience and utility, and are justly regarded a* among the moat desirable in this city. Besides being admirably adapted to the purposes for which tbey were constructed, the said factories could easily be used for sterameries, or converted into large wareh houses for storage or business purposes generally, and from their proximity to the James River and Ka nawha Canal, a lateral branch of said Canal eontd ea sily be constructed at the Eastern end of the said factories—thus giving two water front*, and thereby enabling perssns to receive and forward goods under cover, without any charge for dray age. In addition to the foregoing property, we will sell his celebrated " Phornix," " Aromatic," and several other well established and favored brands, and will impart to the purchasers thereof his mode and man* ner of preparing the tobacco.
