eombtaed.
RICHMOND, ?A
THURBDAY MORNING. FEBRUARY 16, 1854.
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.

HOUSE OF DELEGATES.
Wednesday, Feb. 15,1854.
A communication from the Senate announced the

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.

proposition has now been made to amend fte Con

the enlargement of the canal—and the people were
to vote yesterday on its adoption. 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

this subject at considerable length.

compliment from the gallant commander of the Pa

wide celebrity.
There was an admirable opportunity for ambi

pigeons selected Sunday for their journey, well
knowing that they were protected by the laws,

SALE PRIVATELY IN THE ClT¥ OF RICH
MOND.—In consequence of the continued ill health
of Col. Samuel S. Myers, (who has determined to re
tire from business,) we are authorised by him to otter
at private sale, the following very valuable, desirable
and attractive Real and Personal Estate, vis: The
two large three-story Tobacco Factories, at the coi
ner of Canal and Seventh streets, having an aggre
gate front of 150 feet, and a depth of ISO feet, to an
alley 18 feet wide; also, the adjoining Let, at the cor
ner of Cary and 7th street*, fronting on Cary street
150 feet, running back 140 feet, with two large Shed*
for storing lumber, a new Carpenters' Shop, and se
veral other wooden Buildings thereon, admirably
well adapted to a lumber vara, or for building par
poses, and well enclosed by a high brick wall; also,
several valuable vacant and improved Lots on the
West line of 7th street, (opposite the above,) on on*
of which there i* a large building, used for quarter*
for the factory hands, and admirably adapted to that
purpose; also, the new Briek Store and Dwel
ling, adjoining the above, occupied by Mr.
Tarbeck, fronting 17 10-18 feet; running back 63£
feet. 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.
Persons disposed to purchase any or all of the fore
going real and personal estate, are raspeotfally re
quested to call on the subscribers.
Terms will be made accommodating.
