The following are the receipts of this Road for the month of June. They shew a steady increase in its business, that must be in the highest degree gratifying to its friends. A r.iad, thus rapidly improving, must command the public confidence in its securities. Its history thus far augurs for it a most prospe rous career, when it shall be completed : Receipts on the Virginia and Tennettee Railroad, for the month of June 18:5.

MARTIN VAN BUREN. The venerable sage of Kinderhook was, at the last accounts, still thawing his cold blood beneath the sunny skies of Paris.— There must be much congeniality of tastes and temperament between Louis Napoleon and Martin Van Buren. If Louis has a va cant place in his Cabinet, we recommend Martin for the position. On this side the Arctic circle, there is not, except Louis, a mire crafty, calculating, cold, repulsive be ing, than the venerable fossil of Kinderhook. When he drops into the purgatorial flames, the engineer of that region must be on the or the descending iceberg will put ail his fires out. It would be wiser in Martin, at his time of life, instead of hopping about in the gay saloons of Paris, and hobnobbing with the kindred spirit on the French throne, to prepare for a visit to the court of the Em peror Nicholas—not of Russia—but of those tropical regions, where old politicians per forin involuntary penance. Perhaps no man in the United States has done more to widen sectional differences and promote disunion than Martin Van Buren. And all from disappointed ambition. There h nothing of which such a seltish and cor rupt politician is incapable. "Rule or Ruin" is the motto ot his class. INCREASE OF POPULATION IN NEW YORK According to statistics published in the N. Y. Herald, thu increase of population in the city of New York during the last five years, has been two hundred and thirty five thou sand, a far greater increase than at any pre vious period during the last 20 years. The entire population of the city proper, as shown by the report of the Census Marshal, is about seven hundred and fifty thousand; and with the adjoining towns, including Brooklyn, there are over a million of people, making a population greater than the aggre gate of several States. New York and Brook lyn, it is supposed, will have one fourth of the population of the Empire State, and be represented in the Legislature by 32 mem bers of the Lower House and S members of the Senate. The most populous ward in New York is the Eleventh, the population of which, upon a territory of only about three-tenths of a square mile, is estimated at sixty-five thou sand! FOURTH OF JULY. The N. York Herald, referring to the love of country exhibited by the American peo ple on the 4th of July, says it is unfortunate that our countrymen are patriotic only one day in the year There are some sections j where that hit will apply. The Indian War.—The superintendent of Jcidiau affairs in JN'ew Mexico states, ihfU during the month of May, there w«is conside rable fighting between tlie U. S. troops and the Utah and Li Carilla Indians. The latter lost 47 killed, and the troops lost only two. It is fouud difficult to prevail upon the Pue blo Indians, to receive the agricultural im plements tendered them by the U. 8- gor ernmeut agents. They say that Mexico once gave the presents and demanded pay for tbem, and they fear that our government will do so. Destructive Floods at the North. — On the 27th, a destructive flood occurred at Oramel, Alleghany, Canada, occasioned by the rising of creeks. Bridges and dams were swept away, and a woman and two children drowned, at Homesville, a number of dwellings and a railroad bridge were swept off and one woman drowned. The trains on the Great Western Railway were detained a good deal by the embankments bsiug swept away. Another flood occurred a few days ago on Elkhart river, in Indiana, doing serious damage at Waterford, Benton and Syracuse. The Elkhart Herald says the loss in that county will not be less than $50,000. Distinction of the smr Star Kei'le 'lhe ship Star Republic which was de stroyed on the Ist inst., three days out of New lork, was owned by Wakeman, Dimon & Co., and was built at Portland, Ct., she was 320 tons burthen, and was valued at $15,000, upon which tin re was an insurance of §0,500 in New York. Her cargo of 150 bales of hay was valued at $10,000 and was also insured. *Ast Steamboat Travelling.— The steamer Western World left Detroit, Mich June sth, at lip. M. for Buffalo, where hhe arrived at 11 -10 A. M , the next day, making he passage, -'06 miles, in thirteen hours and forty five minutes. We do not think this time has ever been beaten by a steamer in any waters. The Western World is 346 feet long, 45 1-2 leet beam ; tonnage, 2350 tons diameter of cylinder, 82 1 8 inches; stroke 1- feet. Ihe Cross and the Crescent.—One of the trench bisters of charity, engaged in ministering to the wounded soldiers in the List, has fallen a victim to her zeal and de votion, and perished. At her funeral, the cross which was carried before the coffin, wkh escorted by Turkish soldiors with arms reversed. Sentence o» Di nniu as korthe Murder *^ HIS 7 1FE— A mau named Dunnigan, at Albany, has been sentenced for the murder ; t 111# Wife, to be hung on the -Mtb of August. he prisoner is said to have exhibited much emotion, crying " Oh, 1,-rd ! Oh, Lord !" and weeping in a m tuner that elicited the sym pathy ot uli preseut. Ho suM u itliing why sentence should not be pronounc-d, except that b« w»# not guilty. RICHMOND. FRIDAY JULY 6, L 855 VIRGINIA. i lour Inspection.—'The inspections of n iur at Lynchburg, for the year ending 30 th •June, are as follows: Family 256, Extra Su per fine 385, Superfine l*s<i, Fine 213, Mid lings 494, Condemned 47. 3215. Copper.—The editor of the Wytiieville Republican, has seen a splendid specimen of surface copper ore, found in Smyth county, which excels any found even in Tennessee Iho spot of land upon which it was found, and 1:1,000 acres around it, is owned by L. I). Hancock, Esq. Sun Stroke.—Henry Montgomery, an Irishman, died in Norfolk, Monday, of sun •troke. Repaired. —The Dismal Swamp Canal out of order, from the breaking of a lock, has been repaired, and boats are travelling through it. Camping Out.—The Cadets of the Norfolk Military Academy, have encamped at Old Point for a week. \ £<jEtabi.es—The steamer North Caro lina from Norfolk, Saturday, took 700 barrels of potatoes and other vegetables to Balti more. Re i, ig i ous Inteligence.—At Ravens wood, Va., there were in the 12 days preced ing Juue 21st, 30 conversions and 40 addi tions to the Methodist Church there. Antidote for Poke Root.—Mr. R. L' Taliaferro, has written to tbe Christian Ad vocate, stating that sweet milk is an almost sure antidote in cases where children or others have accidently eaten of that poison ous substance. He cites the cases of his two children whose lives were saved by it. Harvesting.—The Norfolk Herald says, not a drop of rain has fallen in that region since the 25th ult, and the farmers have a glorious time for harvesting. Fourth in Wheeling.—The Fourth was celebrated in W T heeling by the military, fire men, Sunday Schools and citizens generally. fire companies from Steubensville, Ohio, visited the city, and were the guests of their brother firemen. School Law Defeated.—The voters of Brooke county have defeated the public school law there by one hundred majority against it. The iaw sought to be carried is the same as that now existing in Ohio. Coal Receipts.—The receipts of coal in Alexandria for the month of June,have been IS,6GG tODB. Racing.—The cars on the Orange and Al exandria railroad, with the great Southern mail, and the boat on the Potomac,are trying their speed. The former beat the latter Tuesday—arriving at Alexandria several minutes before it. Generally they arrive about the same hour. Tow Boat.—A new tow boat named the "W. W. Townes,'' in compliment to the Mayor of Petersburg, is being built in delphia, to run on the Appomattox. She is to be commanded by Capt. A. F. Drew. Military Visit.—The Petersburg Greys, Capt. J. V. Scott, parading fifty-four men, including the band, left for Norfolk Tuesday evening to spend the Fourth. Improvement.—The Petersburg Council have appropriated $2,500 to improving the fair ground there. From Rio Janeiro.—The bark Panama has arrived at New Orleans from Rio Ja neiro, with dates to the 22d May. The Leg islature was in session. The project to amend the mortmain laws, introduced "last year,was taken up and discussed. Its principal pro visions are that the Government shall be authorized to grant licenses to mortmain corporations to acquire and hold under any title, land or properties for the building of churches, chapels, cemeteries, hospitals, ed ucational constitutions, asylums, buildings, or any other establishments for pious pur poses. A long and warm discussion took place in reference to the reply to che speech from the Throne, in which it was proposed to censure the Ministry f.>r want of economy the administration of the affairs of the Empire. The expensiveness anU unsatisfac tory working of telegraph lines were among the subjects of complaint. The discussion was kept up to so late an that the Cham bers had to adjourn the debate. The regatta of Botatogo took place on the 21st, which was very largely attended, and among others the Emperor and Empress. French and English boats joined with national ones iu the sport, and carried off some of the prizes; but we do not see that any American ones took part in the proceedings. Another Outrage Disposed Of.—A re port having been industriously circulated that the Hon. John 11. Wheeler, U. 8. Minis ter near the Republic of Nicaragua, had been imprisoned by the Nicaragu un govern ment, it meets with a full denial in the Bole tin Official, published at Granada,on the 26th of May, in which the story is pronounced "an infamous calumny—a falsehood without any kind of foundation in any respect." On the contrary, it appears thai Mr. Wheeler reached Granada at a time of some conside rable embarrassment, but was immediately introduced to General Chamorro *nd receiv ed with the greatest courttsy. He subse quently was received with all official honor. At a re union of friends, at which the Presi dent of the republic and his Ministers, with Mr. Wheeler, were present, the latter in re ply to a toast complimentary to the U. States Minister, remarked: " He felt obliged by such token of respect —he had seen with some pain in the papers a notice of his imprisonment by the Govern ment of Nicaragua, where he had received only testimonials of respect aud cordial friend ship. If by the term imprisonment was meant those ties of friendship by which the people of Nicaragua had bound him —by their unexpected and unsolicited acts of kindDess to himself and his Government — then these newspapers had spoken truthfully, for in this sense he was indeed a prisoner, bound haud and heart by their respect to the Government of the United States, aud atten tions to their Minister to this republic." Fire and Kiot is Toronto, C. W.—Last Friday morning a lire broke out in the sta ble of the Globe Hotel, at Toronto, Canada West, which destroyed several dwelling houses, causing a loss of about $16,000. A light among the firemen then took place, aud when the police interfered, they were set upon and badly beaten with clubs and axe helves. Some of them ar« hardly expected to survive their injuries. Death of Jim Myers, the Clown.—Jas. Myers, the clown, and one of the proprietor." of Myers & Madigan's Circus Company, met with an untimely d«alh while perform ing on the slack rope at Geneva, New York. The ring by which th« rope was fastened gave way, throwing him to Ihe ground with so much violence as to dash his brains out. Grand Reformation Meeting,—Abby 11. Folsoin, last week, preseuted a petition to the Common Council of Boston, for permis sion to erect a tent on the Common, to hold a "Grand Universal Purification meet ing." The petition was unceremoniously laid on the table. Safe Banking.—The paper* in Fayette ville, N ().. notice the unusual fact, that the itamlc of Kayetteville whioh had been in ope ration six year* has not made a single bad d«!n. SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. The National American has a salutatory to the American party, and gays in conclu sion, that it does not wage war against for eigners indiscriminattly, but excepts those *bo have been so completely naturalised imong us—so familiar with our constitution and laws that their suffrages, so far from a cause of offence are known to be cxercised with the highest discretion and with an upiight, though frequently misguided judgment. The Enquirer has a leader attributing the outrageous acts committed by the Massachu setts Legislature to Know-Noth nzism, inH-o duced into America through English influ ence. The Whig has a leader advocating the abolition of the "secrecy" feature in the American Order. Corre.pondence of the Dispatch Trip to Petersburg—Crops—The Fourth. PETERSBURG, July 4, 1855. Desirous of rambling, I left your pleasant and hospitable city early this morning, en route for the Sunny South, via Petersburg, under the obliging and accommodating Con ductor, _Capt. Stratton. Along the route, the wheat is mostly harvested, while eorn and oats looked remarkably well, with few ex ceptions. On arriving at the "Cockade city"' I wended my way to Phoenix Hall, and heard the Declaration of Independence, which was well read, by Wm. H. Lemoire, E*q, and the Oration delivered by John Y. Gholson. Jr., which was a chaste, eloquent and forci ble composition. His themes were the rela tions between America and England, and the influence of Woman on government. The military consisting of Artillery and City Guard, made a handsome display, together with the smiles and greetings of the lads and lassies of the Cockade, made the day one long to be remembered. C. Crops in Eastern Texas—The Jeffer son Herald learns that the corn and cotton on ps in Red River, Titus and Bowie coun ties are in excellent condition, and that an unusually large yield is anticipated. The Herald says: " In addition to the splendid corn and cot ton crops growing in the prairies bordering on Red River and tbe Trinity, th«- wheat crop has been one of astonishing yield. The average yield per acre is estimated at twen ty five bushels. Gallant Robber.—Accounts from Mexi co state that the diligence between Toluca and Morelia had been stopped by robbers, and the passengers plundered of about $2 000. The affair was done in thb most genteel manner. A lady passenger had a ring of great value on her finger, which one of the robbers strove in vain to get off. Finding he could not succeed, he begged the lady to keep the bauble in remembrance of him. Drowning at a Mormon Baptizixg.—The Cln cinnati Sun gives an account ot a Moraicn baptizing which took place thpre on Sunday la»t. The par ty numbered sbou'fifty. The candidate* tor bap. tistn—both male and female, were stripped to tbelr la.t garments and »tood on the bank of the river awaiting.immersion. Two of the officiating elders named Williams—father and son—were drowned while administering the rites. Chilian Sailobs.—Tbe Minister of Marine of Chili has published two important decrees with re. gard to merchantmen. The one 1* allowing na tional vessels the completion of tbelr crews with two-thirds foreigners, counting from the captain Hownwsrd*. In view of the great scarcity of Chi lian sailor, ia proportion to the number ot vessels sailing under the Chilian flag. Tiie other imp<>« s-s upon every captain of a vessel the duty of giv ing satisfactory account, at his return, of all the Chilian sailors who may be found missing from his muster roll, under a penalty of 850 for ev»ry man, and the risk of his vessel being considered as ucder a foreign flag, without claim to the privileges of the most lavored nations. Shocking Cask of Hydrophobia.—A man living about fony miles from Cairo, on the Railroad line, named Evans was bitten by a mad dog recently ana died, or rather was murdered in cons- quence! it is said that during his paroxysms five men were UDableto hold him, and, In compliance with his earnest entreaties, a nutrber of persons placed him between two feather beds, and smothered him to death. — Indianapolis Sentinel. Forged Free Papers.—Mr.Thomas Mathews, a extensive merchant ami universally esteemed cit : z"n of Sr. Louis, was arrested lsst Friday in St. Louis by a policeman tamed Frake* upon the charge of hsving piven two of Robert Bartlett's slaves free papeis by which they were to escape, The arrest caused much excitement in the city, and from circumstances which trantpired it is thought that the prisoner was the victim of a conspiracy between the policeman and the negroes —the for. mer having offered to tear up the free paper* for $1,000. <» Breaking into a Bri ken Bank —Last winter, during the caving in troubles of the Canal Bank st Cleveland, Dr. H A Ackley with a posse comitatvt brokei'pen the vault of the bank and seized the money he hod there on deposit. The Bank brought suit against the Doctor for damages, and the case was tried In tho Common Court in Cieveland.on Thursday. Trie jury without reti'ing,returned a verdict of six corns damages, thus indirectly appro ving the Doctor's course If this is to be regarded us a precedent, "busted"'banks had better open their vaults to every applicant Cotton Thrown out cf Market.—A corres pondent of the New Orleans Delta, writing from Alexandria, La., June 22d, says that there are 150,- 000 bales of cotton at that place waiting for a rise in the river, 45,000 bales at Shreveport and 45 000 at Jefferson, Ti xii, la the same situation; all ot which he thinks will have to remain unsold this aeason. Frightful Disaster at Mazatlan—On the loth ult., a violent storm of wind passed over the harbor of Mazatlan, Mexico, causing serious colli sion* among the shipping. No less than six Eng ish, French and Peruvian ships and barks were sunk and 23 of their crew were drowned. Their cargoes were valued at over 81,000 000.
