This Is a matter for the very serious considera
tion of the Council, and we cannot suppose for a
toon-eat that any member of that body, however
foreign to commercial pursuita miy be his voca
tion, will for a moment hesitate a* to the clear and
n.detnn duty of the city to deepen the water at the
wharves, aud keep clear the way to them. It is
not only the duty, but the interest of the city that
I'jU shall be done. If the harbor is to be filled up,
we bad better at once take Col. Tomli.V* propo

Thin subject demands the earliest attention of the
city authorities.

It is designed to use a lighter and more piiable
wire than that lost a few months since ott the
coast of New l'ounuland. It will be laid as toon
as possible after the surveys. Two steamen wiij
be employed in the service. They will take each
half of the cable, and uniting ihe ends of the two
halves about midway between the two shores,
each will proceed in opposite directions. This is
greatly supeiior to towing a vessel having on
board all the cable, as was done on the former at
tempt and daring which, a gale arising, both be
came unmanageable. It is supposed that six days
is a liberal allowance for the execution of the work
of laving the wire by the two steamers.

The Secretary of State ha* been exalted above
Lis former position as a statesman and diplomat
by his management of the recruitment case. He
hi.s gained a decided triumph over his adversary
abroad and his misgiving friends at home. Mr
Makcy has for some years—at least from the time
of the Mexican war—been regarded as one of the
vriVy first men in the country for his talents, saga
city and tact as a Cabinet Minister and Diplomat.
Letters from Kurope state that his entire corre
spondence on the enlistment subject, and es
pecially his dispatch of the 27th May, has placed
him there in the highest rank of statesmen and
diplomatists among European publicists.
It is said that the French Minister, M. Saktigks,
called oa Mr. Marcy a few days since and tendered
him his special congratulations "upon the success
of his grand coup tie main." M. Sartiges, it will
be remembered, very much deprecated the dis
missal of Mr. Crampton, and apprehended un
pleasant results from it.
The credit due to him for the manner iu which
Le has acquitted himself iu the management o!
his last very d flicult atl'air of diplomacy with
England, will be swarded to him without respect
to party. His adversaries have ceased to joke him
hbout hi* skill in patching breeches —to which they
were once very much prone—and his fame in that
line is utterly absorbed by his success in repairing
stale creva*Kt».
The Wheat Crop.
Tbe Wheat crop ia this State is perhaps tie
most unequal there has been fur some years. In
►owe localities there are every grade of success
and failure of the crops. The ravages oi insects
have occasioned this. Some fields have been ut
terly destroyed, while very near them tie Mi of the
very finest Wheat have been reaped. The crop
on the whole is a short one. Tbo extent of the de
licit is variously estimated, and of course the data
is too iinpurfect and uncertain to enable any one to
form a conclusion that is rtliable. The quality of
the grain is, however, very good indeed, as far as
we are able to judge from the samples brought in

year the sales have averaged about per ai re,
which is nearly double the average fixed upon in

The eheap press in England, which has sprung

TIO „ —The London Pott of th« '-"M June, while
considering the danger of war with tiio United
States over—at lea«t for Ihe present—thus de»-
scants upon the policy of iu government with re
gard to the Central American Question:
"We cannot onraeWes see what object this ex
treme kamility is intended to answer. We put
a»Me the opening rcene—the small cloud that rose
on the horizon—the little question of enlistment.—
Ttat may be taken as settled. The real matter
that we har* to face is the subject of the exclusive
right of the United States to extend itself in Amer
lea. KletAcr England—whetktr Europe—in to re
tire altogether before the movement* of tkit country ;
u rectdt before iU adcarre ;to ririke it* fig to the
Mart and itripe* of the filibuster*; to declare that it
has no right to protect the natives, to colonise or
to trade, except under the gracious permission of
the free and enlightened republic.
-It is not the Wast likely that the Government of
the United State* will seriously adhere to this ab
surd claim of despotism over the w hole ot Ameri
ca. It is not likely that they will deliberately f-nter
ioto a quarrel which wouid do them the evident
damage of a dispute with England, for the mere
Rakrt of asserting the Monroe doctrine It is not
likely that, with the business they have cu band
witbin the States, they will ran the enormous ricks
which they w«uld incur by a serious dillerence
with EuglatuL Peace is to them iulinitely more
important than it is to ns. It is only by such ri
diculous pieces of submission a a that proposed and
abaudoued by Mr. Kailiie, iu bis long winded ad
dress, and threatened to be taken as a bad legacy
bv Mr. Moore, that we should encourage the States,
whoever may be cbosc-n as their President, to en
ter on a difficulty with England. The British peo
ple are really about the last in the world to give
up their rights iu any quarter of the globe. The
party who hunger aud thirst in vain for a second
opportunity of distinguishing themselves in office,
have, in this instance, at least, chosen a wrong
liue in their search for popularity. A miserable
submission to the United Slates is the last cry that
will serve their purpose."
Later lrom Kansas -The Free Situte Con
vention LH»per»ed by Col. £umner~Con-
Vrution at Topeka.
Advices from Topeka, Kansas, to the 4th, aay
that a Convention met there on the 21 inst, and
passed resolutions in favor of the Republicans, and
denunciatory of the Democrats, appealing to the
friends of Free Kansas in Congress to flop voting
supplies until Kansas shall be admitted into the
Union under the Topeka Constitution. Mr. Don
ation and Judge Ellrnore read the President's pro
clamation of February last, and Gov. Shannon's
proc amation; and Mr. Woodson read a note from
Col. Sumner, saying that he would prevent the
meeting of the Legislature, but they were unheed
ed. About SifJ were present, all armed.
On the 4th, both branches of the Free State Le
gislature met, when Col. Sumner entered the town
with 200 United States dragoons, and planted two
cannon at the head of Kansas avenue. The troops
were drawn up before Constitutional 11 all. Col.
Sumner told the citizens that he would not disarm
them or break up the Convention, but had orders
to dissolve he Legislature and wr.uld do so.

Assault.—The ex-Bishop of North Carolina,
Professor J. Siliiman Ives, was knocked down and
brutally assaulted in New York, Tuesday morning,
at the office of the Hudson river depot, by a bag
gage master there, the only offence of the Rev.
gentleman, it is said, being a request to deliver

taken before a justice and sentenced to deliver the
baggage, pay a heavy fine and to fcive bonds for
his future good behavior.

l'he prisoner was found guilty, and sentenced to
twelve months' imprisonment.

Visitation at lieorgetown, D. C„ Wednesday "the
distribution of premiums took place. Rev. Bish

Disasters ok the Western Rivers —The St.
Louis Democrat contains a list of the disasters on
the western rivers during the six months ending
on the.'iOth of June last. The number of t-team

collision, ice, snags, &c., :»t>; total 40. The num

i/ati debts It is said to be drawn up on the model of
•itnilar associations already exisiiiig in England and
b'lauue ; the French company, for a simitar purpose,
calltd "Le Ducroire," is quoted as having, at tlie end
oi lfeji, puiicies cut for at least £30,600 UOO. A sim-
Uur association in this country would doubtless be
wall patronized, especially by those lailors and boot
make*s who have extensive ueatiuss with our tost
voUfiji men, though we are doubtful whether such
iiebts would he insured at any price.

iAKViitt THUKiIiT, in all my lite,
What trials do await us.
When changing name from "M'.ss" to ' \V ife,"
How much noes irritate us !
0 me! I'm worried half to death.
By running without stopping—
Not for a bonnet er a dress,
1 am used to that shopfiug—
To fix our house as't ought to be,
Makes me such awful trouble;
Dear Billy has no time, says he.
And hating to psy double
Kor what we want in married life.
Of which 1 know no value—
As China, Glassware. Korkssnd Knife,
Clock, Leoking-Giass. 1 teliyou,
1 wished some body be so kind
'fo take this trouble from my mind;
To thow me whither I can go
To buy all this, and buy it low !
