WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1854. rHE DAILY DISPATCH tr The circulation of the DAILY DISPATCH exceeds considerably that of all the Daily paper* of Richmond combined BICHMOSD, FA: WEDNESDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 13,18tt" The True Bond or Unios.—ln one of the last letters, written by Chief Justice Mar shall, he wisely said: } 'a my opinion. Impossible to preserve oar Union anless our bosoms reselve those affections and kind impreasions from each other which ought to be long to the citizen* of the aame eouatry—unleaa those jealoasie* and enmities which grow out of a supposed but mistaken opposition of interests yield to those feelings which a conviction of our reciprocal depen dence on each other would inapire. I am not less nnnly pertuaded that our prosperity and our free in stitution* will be greatly hazarded if the government of these United States be dissolved." These words of wisdom are worthy the se rious reflection of those newspapers and poli ticians whose whole aim seems to be to stir up bitterness and strife in the minds of the Northern and Southern people against each other. The cohesive power of the Union is the mutual affection of its people, and when that is alienated, nothing remains but an empty aemblance of nationality, ready to crumble to pieces at the first rude touch. In the farewell address of Gen. Jackson, he earnestly invoked his fellow-citizens "never for a moment to believe that the great body of the citizens of any State or States, can de liberately intend to do wrong." "They may," said he, "under the influence of temporary excitement or misguided opinions, commit mistakes—they may be misled for a time by suggestions of self interest; but in a commu nity so enlightened and patriotic as the peo ple of the United States, argument will soon make them sensible of their errors, and when convinced, they will be ready to repair them. If they have no higher or better motives to govern them, they will at last perceive 'that their own interest requires them to be just to others, astliey hope to receive justice at their hands.'" We extract another portion of the same ad dress which we recommend to the attention of those who look upon Disunion as the pana cea for all our present troubles, and do not reflect that it might prove the prolific mother of greater,ills, a s well as of new divisions and sub-divisions: "What have you to gain by division and dissen sion 1 Delude not yourselves with the belief that a breach may be afterwards repaired. If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies waich are now debated and settled in the halls of lejieiation will than be tried in the fields of battle and determin ed by the sword. should you deceive your selves with the hope that the first line of separation would be the permanent one, and that nothing but harmony and concord would be found in the new association formed upon the dissolution of the Vnion. Local interests would still be found there, and un r hastened ambition. And .if the recollection of com mon dangers, in which the people of these U. S., stood side by side against the common foe; the memory of victories won by their united valor; the prosperity and happiness they have enjoyed under the present constitution; the proud name they bear as cßlzens of this great republic ;—if all these recol lections and proofs of common Interest are not strong enough to bind us together as one peeple, what tio will bold united the new divisions of em pire, when these bonds have been broken and dis severed? The iirstlineof separation would notlast for a single generation; new fragments would be torn off; new leaders would spring up; and this great and glorious republic would soon be broken into a multitude of petty States, without commerce, with out credit, jealous of one another,armed for mutual aggressions, loaded with taxes to pay armies and leaders, seeking aid against each other lrom foreign powers, Insulted and trampled upon by the nations of Europe, until, harassed with conflicts, and hum bled and debased in spirit, they would be ready to submit to the absolute dominion of any military ad venturer, and surrender their liberty for the sake of repose. It is impossible to look on the consequences that would inevitably follow the destruction of this government, and not feel Indignant when we hear cold calculations about the value of the Union, and have so constantly before us a line of conduct so well calculated to weaken its ties." Extension of the South-Side Railroad to Covington.—Lynchburg and Richmond Air Line.—The Petersburg Intelligencer and Democrat advocate the extension of the South-Side railroad to Covington. No doubt an excellent idea, and, in connection with the air line from Lynchburg to Richmond, will contribute much to the general prosper ity* Melancholy Case. —On Sunday morning last, at the house No. 285 Bleecker street, New York, a woman named Anne Fitzgerald, and her son Fran cis, aged 8 years, were found lying side by side' dead. It was the general impression that death was caused by the administration of laudanum. It ap peared that the woman was deserted by her hus. band some years ago, and she bad been lorced to 'abor lor the support ot herself and child. A few days previous to her death she was heard to say that she had become weary of life, and would " see but few more sunrises." Under this weight of sor row, she undoubtedly poisoned herself and her child, and they passed into eternity together. The Gale. —The gale of Friday and Saturday last was quite destructive at Wilmington, N. C., prostrating trees and fences, and doing other dam. age. The Journal says: On Saturday night, a whirlwind passed along the Eastern limits ot town, cutting a clear lane along Its course. It does not appear to have been wider than a street. The house of Mr. Wm. Harris, on Market street, where the plank road begins, had the top and one end completely cut off , as straight as If it had been done with a knite. The roof was carried to a considerable distance. Some kitchens and other out buildings were taken up and thrown down at the same time. The tornado, in its course, snapped ofl'plnes of two and three feet In diameter. Valuable llelic.—Mr. Henry C. Jarrett, of the Baltimore Museum, has in hli possession a testimo nial presented by the Kmperor Napoleon I, to the great tragedian, Tnlma. It is a massive gold re peating watch with a double back, on the inner one oi which is the Inscription " .Souvenir pour Talma, Napoleon Bonaparte, le 2 May, 1809," surrounding a medallion likeness of the great general. On the 'ace, which is of white china, is inscribed: " Faite par l'ordrede Napoleon I.,Kmpereurdes Francais, Tub KB Boys I)rown«d.—Three boy*, named Benjamin Trlekey, Itolvin Smith and William 8.

Church, South, met at Louisa, Ky., on the Bth Inst Bishop F.arly was expected to preside. Wa ere indebted to the Agents and Messengers of Adams h Co'a Express, for r* pea ted favors la the way of newspaper*. WHITE SULPHUR CONVENTION. In the report* In thla paper of the proceedings of the Convention at the White Sulphur .Spring*, the writer «u, from neceacity, compelled to be rirry brief and to omit much, that under other cit c a instance*, would have been fully reported. He Uke* occasion to make tome correction* and addi tion*. Pending the disposition of the resolution* re ported by the committee of twenty one, on Friday, the 25th of August, General Mux, the only rep resentative of the county of Shenandoah, cast the only negative vote upon the two resolutions in favor of the extension of the Canal, and in favor of the improvement of the Kanawha river. In doing so, General M. took occasion to say that he did not wiah to be understood as expressing for himself or his constituents hostility to those im provement ; but it was his opinion that the objects of the Convention did not Include those improve ments, and therefore he did not feel at liberty to commit his constituents with regard to them. As the call was understood in his county, it was con fined to the Covington and Ohio Railroad. In the report of the last day's proceedings of the Convention, Mr. Lyons is represented as having spoken twice m opposition to Mr. Rivxs's proposi tion for another Convention. Mr. Giffobd made the first speech in opposition to It, and the com positor made a mistake in putting Mr. Lyons'sname for his. In a brief reference to the scene between Messrs. Rinss and Lyons, there was hardly justice done> and it is therefore proper to refer to it again. The design of the writer in noticing it at all, was to show without going into details, the cause which led to it, and the happy conclusion by which it was ter minated. It was deemed proper to go thus far, as a great many rumors as to what had occurred would likely be conveyed from the Springs. The report was written In very great haste, just before the mail closed, and the writer has not overlooked it until now. The scene happened on the last day of the Con vention (the 26th of August.) Mr. Rives, in the course of his speech, had dwelt with great earnest ness upon the importance of the Internal Improve ment cause in Virginia. He declared that he re garded it superior to all mere party questions of the day; as in its objects and effects "overruling and overriding your presidential elections, your Ne braska and Kansas and Homestead Bills;" and Mr. R. elaborated his idea of the great advantage to result to the old Commonwealth by ccncentra ing the energies aad abilities of her son* upon the measures for the promotion of her own growth and prosperity. When Mr. Lyons arose to speak in opposition to a resolution proposed by Mr. Rivk*, he commenced by saying that although a warm friend of the Cen tral line and of Improvements generally, he could not go as far as his friend from Albemarle, who had uttered a sentiment which he would not have uttered, or rather entertained, for the whole road; and Mr. L. proeeeded to say in substance that he would prefer to see Virginia without a single work of Internal Improvement, rather than submit to the surrender of her political privileges and the prin ciple* involved In the Nebraska and Homestead Bills, as he regarded them. Mr. L. then proceed ed to oppose the resolution of Mr. Rives. When Mr. Lyon* concluded, Mr. Rive* arose, evidently excited under his impression of the pur pose of Mr. L. in his exceptions to his sentiment. He declared that the gentleman from Richmond, who called himself his friend, and with whom he had been on terms of intimacy and friendship for many years, had sought to bring odium upon a sentiment of his, and to make political capital by an ad capitandum assault upon hi* fidelity to the Institutions of the South. Mr. Lyons attempted to interpose, remarking that he could satisly Mr. R. that he was mistaken. Mr. Rivss requested not to be interrupted, and insisted upon his right to the floor, averring that he was not mistaken as to the language employed by Mr. L., and complaining that a friend should so at tempt to bring odium upon a sentiment of his by distorting its meaning and involving him iu intidcli ty to Virginia and the South. With much energy of expression, he declared " I spurn the imputa tion." Mr. Ltons said " I made no such imputation." Mr. Rives agaia quoted the language of Mr. Ly ons, and commeated upon it, and the inference which he thought It bore upon its face. He declar ed himself a mac of peace ; but ready at all times for " peace or wsr." To which Mr. Lyons respon ded, "as you please, Mr. Rives." " Then let it be as it is," said Mr. Rives. Mr. R. then reiterated his sentiment of the superior claims upon the people of Virginia, of their own State interests, and of the Improvement cause over the questions of the day in Federal politics, mixed up with which he declared there was a great deal of humbug. He denied the incompatibility of his sentiment with loyalty to the South, and protested in the most earnest manner his devotion to the rights oi Virginia and the South. After deploring the position he had been forced In to, and expressing with some emotion some senti ments ef a personal character, relating to his own hopes and aspirations for his luture lite, Mr. Rives concluded. Mr. Lyons, who had been standing in the aisle, immediately in rear of Mr. Rivks, spoke and said that the gentleman had gone far to prevent him from saying what he had intended to say when he refused to yield him (Mr. L.) the floor. But, nevertheless, while he did not retract a word or syllable of what he bad said, he would not be driven to do injustice and place bimseli in the wrong. He neverdreamed of casting any imputation upon the honor oi Mr. R. or upon his loyalty to the South. He never presu med that he was not as loyal to the South as he (Mr. L.) was, and he expressed bis regret and surprise that be had not been allowed to explain his mean ing. Mr. L. objected to Mr. R's sentiment not for the spirit in which it had been uttered, but for the con sequences to which he saw it would lead Besides, Mr. R. was too old a debater, too skilful a parlia mentarian not to know that it was allowable for a speaker to make his adversary's argument unpal atable ; and to overthrow it if possible by exposing its consequences. He, Mr. L., would hold himself to be unworthy of a seat on that floor, if regarding the former relations between him and Mr. Rives, he could without premonition have made an assault upon the character and motives of the gentleman from Albemarle. Mr. Rives very frankly expressed himself satis fied with the explanation—expressed his gratifica tion at It, adding that he theretore still regarded Mr. Lyons as his friend, and be hoped they would never think of the scene again. Their being cries of " shake hands," Mr. Lyons tendered his hand to Mr. Rivet, who grasped and shook it very cordially, much to the gratification of all present. From Venezuela,—A letter, dated Caracas, Au gust 10, says: On the 27th of last month a bloody battle wa» fought near Valencia. The patriot troops are said to hare mueterrd 2,000, and the Government troops 1,500 —that the latter were beaten, with immense slaughter on both aides; but General Silver arrived with a reinforcement of 1,000 troops, and the pa triots retired. The Government bulletin simply mentioned that the rebels were beaten by General Silver, and that General Rodriguez and other chiefs of the re!>eis were left dead on the field. The great body of the people throughout the country are opposed to the Mooaga* Government, which has brought ruin and desolation on the coun try; but they have no organization, no leader, no arms, and therefore slumber over their misfortunes. Many of the principal Inhabitants of this capital have been arrested and thrown into prison, simply on suspicion that they were inimical to the Govarn raent. The people here, like those in Cuba, are afraid to communicate their thought* one to the other, for tear oi being denounced as conspirators. A Little Heroine.—On Friday, during a firent Brookvilie, Jefferson county, Pa, a Mr*. Brady, who resided in the burning dwelling, wa* ab*ent at the time gathering plttma, navlng left her babe In charge of a small boy. When it wa* know that the baby was still in the house, a little girl of 12 or 14 years of age, named Amelia Farely, rushed through the smoke <«nd flame, up the stair*, and •uccceded In aaving the child, ana took care of the little innocent until It* mother's return.

PRICE ONE CENT. PERSONAL DIFFICULTY SETTLED. In the Whig, of yetferday, we notice acorre* poadence between Men. WillWm a Lyon* and Robert Ridgway, Jr., relative to an article in a re cent number of that paper reflecting upon Mr! James' Lyons, of this city. To an interrogatory of Mr. W. Lyon*, as to whether Mr. Ridgway waa the author of the article, the latter reaponda In the af. firmative. Mr. Lyona then requeata Mr. R. to } B . form him at what place and time, raiting hi* ear liest convenience, he would be to receive another note with a view to a final arrangement of matter*. In reply, Mr. Ridgway name* Brown'a Hotel, Wa*hinglon,;»*'the,place, and Monday, September 11, a* the time. At thi* juncture, Mr. Henry P. Irving interpose*, as the iriend of both parties, and suggests the following ba*i* of settlement: Washington, Sept 10th, 1854. Having heard of the difficulty between W. 11. Lyons and R. Ridgway, Jr., and bavins read the article in the Whig of September 2d, 1854, and the correspondence which ft has produced between those gentlemen, I submit to them the following aa my views ol the same: From an intimate personal knowledge of the character of Mr. James Lyons, I know that the ar ticle of which Mr. R. acknowledges himaelf the author, is unjust, and I am confident that had Mr. Ridgway been personally acquainted with him, that that artiele would not have been written. Mr Ridgway must appreciate the high and honorable teeliagsthat have prompted Mr. Wm. H. Lyons to make the call he baa made on him, and his right to make that call. I therefore think that the difficulty should be adjusted by Mr. Lyons withdrawing his letter ol the 7th Inst., calling on Mr. Ridgway to fix a time of meeting, and that Mr. Ridgway should retract the paragraphs of the article signed R., re flecting on Mr. James Lyons. 1 have acted in this matter as the personal Iriend of both these gentle men - Henm P. Irving. To this proposition of settlement, the friends i f the principals to the affair in the following ncte: As the respective friends of both Mr W H Iv. COnC " in the CjEO. W.

The Late Duel in Kentucky-The Cincln cinnati Gazette has the following account of the duel that was fought in Kentucky on Monday last briefly mentioned by telegraph a few days since • Sometime *mce, Mr. Henry Short, Jr., »clerk on Firth street, became attached to a beautiful young lady, residing on Eight street, and to whom he soon engaged himself for marriage. Mr. Short about a month ago, went to Philadelphia on a vl*lt to his pa rents, who reside on Chestnut street, in that city — During his absence he received a letter from a fel low clerk, that hi* betrothed lady love was keeping the company of a young "limb of the law," named Alexander Peacock, now a resident of Chicago but a native of this city. The letter gave Mr. s" reason to believe that Peacock and his lady were engaged Mr. S. returned home and found that all had not been told him—that P. had slandered him, and defamed his character to the young lady, and thus won her anections. Determined to have an explanation, he wrote to Peacock and the lady, and demanded' the same. They both treated him coldly, and requested Mr. to. not to annoy them with hit communication— the young lady at the same time returning her en gagement ring. This so enraged Mr. S. that he sent a challenge to Mr. P., which was accepted, and ri fles were chosen as the weapons. Seconds were ap pointed, who fixed the place of meeting and time — No persons were present except two friends of each party, and their seconds. At the first fire no injury was sustained by either ol the duellists. An effort wa* then made to reconcile the difficulty, but neith er party would listen to any compromise, and the partie* were ordered to their post for the *econd hre The word was given, and Mr. S. fell bleeding to the ground, the ball having taken effect in his left shoulder. He was then picked up and taken to Mr. Brenson'f, a farmer's house, and his wound d ressed. He is considered in a critical condition. - It Is now understood that when the young lady learned what had happened, she refased to have anything to do with either of the parties, and has resolved to break off all engagement* with each of the gentlemen. It I*, therefore, evident that in thi* case the old adage of ''faint heart never won fair lady," has been reversed. Shocking Affair.—On the 14th tilt., Mr. W. F. Warren, of Winston county, Miss., was shot by some unknown person while standing in a door with an infant In his arms. The child received several buckshot In Its head, and both died soon alterward. Warren is thesameperson who killed a son of Mr. Thos. Woods In a similar manner and at the same house, a year ago last spring. He stood his trial and was acquitted. It is quite probable that the fatal affair above noticed had Its origin in motives of revenge. Heavy Bonds.—lt appears that murder Is a ball, able offence In Mississippi. Young May, who shot Gillespie, not long since, near Benela, has been bound over for his appearance at court in the sum of «10,000. Stabbing.—A man named Foster was fatally stabbed at Columbus, Ky., a few days ago, by one Jennings, alias Calico Jim, who was arrested and put in jail. Ashland.—lt Issaid that George Law, the pro" prietor of the famous muskets, has sent an agemt to Kentucky to purchase the Ashland estate, the residence of Henry Clay. Cholera at Columbia, Pa.—Panic in Conse quence.—A dispatch, dated York, Pa., Sept. 11th, gives the following account of the ravages of the cholera at Columbia, Pa.: The telegraph is not working between here and Columbia. There is a rumor that the Operator at at Colombia, amongst others, has fallen a victim to the terrible scourge. We have bad no communica tion with that town since last night. The train is expected about half past two o'clock, when further particulars may be obtained. Various rumors are in circulation. From all I can gather, there has been about eighty deaths of cholera, including yesterday, since the disease appeared on Friday last. It has been unusually fatal, -very few escaping who were attacked. Some amongst our best and most prudent citizens have fallen victims. The panie is almost be yond conception. Every store except Drue and Doc tors' offices, are closed, and business entirely sus pended. A very larje nnmber of persons have already left town for various location* in the country, and hnn dreds are leaving f-very hour on foot, in carriages and other vnhieles, and "n horseback; also, by the ears— The whole populace is completely panle-stricken, and it is feared ther» will not be enough left to at tend to the sick or bury the dead. At last accounts, the epidemic was raging with great virulence and on the increase, notwithstanding the great decrease In population. Many who were taken, died in a few hours. Expresses have been sent te Philadelphia and elsewhere, for phj-iciana who have had familiar practise with the disease. The calamity is truly ap palling. lira. Gladstone, the actress, is lying seriously ill at her residence In Cincinnati. Mh John Dunbar, a veteran policeman of New Or leans, died in that city a few days ago, of couanmp. tion. The Savannah ptrers appeal to the citizens abroad for psenniary assistance in taking car* of the indi gent sick. The Rev.
