THE DAILY DISPATCH.
Halarday Manila*, J«|y itfl, IM6.
FOURTH OP JULY IN LONDON.
Npcwkti the •icnaioa-English feeling
tawwrda America.
The Fourth of July was celebrated by * party
riven by Mr. Peabody, at which one hundred
American* sat down with a few Engliab iranlle
-12160.
, Mr. Peabody took the chair shortly after soven
aclock, supported on the right by the American
Minuter, Mr. DaUa*, and on the left by Mr. W.
Brown, M P; Mr. Stall, of Manchester; Mr. Mor
gan, of London; Mr. Souerby, of Boeton, United
dtate*: Mr- P. N. Dallas, Secretary of Legation,
and Mr. Cro*key, United States Coutal at Sonth
ampton, acted a* Vice Preildent*. Mr. John Mac
gruder, M. P; Mr. 8 C Hall, and Mr J. E. Jones,
the sculptor, were among the English guests.
After the removal of tue cloth Mr Peabody rose
and said : Your eaceileney aud gentlemen. I am
now about to pass, in the common acceptation of
the phrase, "the toeing cup." But 1 have before
mo two cups, the one of British fabric, the other
of my native oak, presented to nie several years
since by my esteemed friend, Mr Francis Peabody,
who is now present Before passing these cup*
allow me to say a word or two with respect to the
day in connection with myaelf. The first dinner I
gave in commemoration of the 4th of July, 1776,
was in this hail in 1850, and 1 was then, as uow,
honored by the preset.ee of the American Minister,
of a large party of my own countrymen, and of
several English friends, some of whom it is my
happiness to see around me to day. That experi
ment proved successful, and in 1851, in consequence
ot the large number of my countrymen who came
over to visit the Great Exhibition, I determined on
substituting for the dinner a concert and ball.
A few of my couutrymeu endeavored to dis
suade me trom tbe atUrnpt to bring Englishmen
and Americans together on such au occasion, but
the acceptance of the Duke of Wellington put an
end to my doubts, and a thousand happy faces, at
Aimack's, on the 4th of July, ISSI, sealed my
■ucccss—(cheers) —and, I trust, broke down the
assumed barrier to the union of Englishmen and
Americans, in celebrating this glorious anniversa
ry, never again to be erected. (Cheers.) But
to return, gentlemen, to the cups; these cups of
love and peace, the one of British fabric, the
other of our American oak, filled with the same
lountain of £ood cheer, 1 send one to the East and
the other to the West, aud when they meet in
the circling bound may they pas* with the touch
of friendship. (Cheers )
The two cups were tuen passed round, Mr. Pea
body drinking to the guests from each State of the
Uniou, separately, aud afterwards to those from
"Old England and her Colonies."
Mr Peabody, after proposing the first toast, "The
day we celebrase," called upon all who were friend
ly to the sacred cause of liberty and civilization to
do honor to the memories of those great men who
had pledged their fortunes, their honor and their
lives te support that cause; which waa received
with loud acclamation.
Mr. Peabody claimed a bumper for the next
toast, which, he was »ure, needed no speech froui
him to recommend it. The toast he had juat pro
posed was the only one to which he would have
given precedence over the present He had nev
er yet known an American who would not drink
the toast of her '"Her Majesty the Queen,'' with
aa much enthusiasts sa the moat loyal of her sub
jects.
The toast waa drunk with enthusiastic cheering.
Mr. Peabody said he chould next have the plea
sure of proposing a toast in honor of the Chief Ma
oist rate of the land of bis birth "l'be President of
the United Stater," which was received with great
applause. _
Captain Mackinnon, , in proposing the next
toast, thanked their host, the merchant prince, who
bad entertained them in so priucely a manner, for
the afforts he had made to cultivate relations ef
friendship between John Bull and Brother Jona
than. [Cheers J in the course of three years a
country as large as England had been occupied and
cultivated. Capt Mackinnon concluded by propos
ing "The Memory of Washington," which waa
di uuk standing and in silence.
Mr. W. Brown, M. P., said—Before proposing
the toast which baa been placed in aiy hands, per
mit me to congratulate you on meeting you to eel
ebrate a day which will ever be remembered in
the history of the world—a day from which we,
the subjecta of her Majesty, have derived as much
advantage as you, the citizens of the United States.
[Cheers ] We are not answerable for the sins of
statesmanship, for the grievous errors of our fore
fathers ; and your i.lunrioas Washington—wise in
the Senate, skilful iu the field—who must ever live
in your hearts, Is also remembered withprofoand
respect by England, as well as by the whole of the
civilized world. [Cheers.] How rejoiced would
he be, were he living at this Moment, to aee the
prosperity of the country which be may be 'said to
have brought into existence, to see the enterpris
ing spirit of bis countrymen leading them, now to
make a communication between two great oeeans
—the Pacific and the Atlantic—now to bridge over
lofty rocks, and now to explore the perilous Arctic
seas. [Cheers ] I deny that England feels any
jealousy towarus the United States ; we rejoice in
your prosperity ; wo have wisdom enough to know
that by the prosperity of other nations, particular
ly as regards the (Jutted States, we are as much
benefited as they are. [Cheers ] The notion tbat
the lortnrnes of one country arise from the mis
fortunes of another is, 1 trust, by this time explo
ded. True, souie slight differences exist now be
tween us ; but when we tiud gentlemen like hia
Excellency, for whom we all feel the deepest re
spect, and the Minister with whom be haa to nego
tiate, anxious to get rid oi those differences, there
can be but little doubt tbat tUey will soon be ami
cably adjusted, [Cheers ] I beg to propose "the
health ot his Excellency the American Minister,"
whose character stands so pre-eminentiy high both
in his own and this country.
The to tst was drank with loud cheer*,
Mr. Lallas—lt is extremely difficult, amid ex
pressions of se much personal kindness, not to lose
sight for a moment of the great national demonstra
tion ou account of which we are assembled, and 1
return you my most hearty thauks for the person
al compliment you have paid to mo. I rejoice to
find in ibid land bo many ardent aad patriotic
Americans meet to celebrate the anniversary of
our independence. [Loud cheers 1 We are, as a
country, bnt eighty years of age; we are at this
moment honon d by the presence of one of the
leading men of America, who is ouly ene year
younger than his own country—General Mercer,
[Cheers; J but, notwithstanding the youth of our
country, how justly proud may we be of her
[ Cheers ] At the time of her birth she was a pu
ny creature, sickly, feeble, diminutive. Look at
her now. She then contained but 2,500,000 Her
population is now 27,000.000. Her territory waa
then a margin of the Atlantic It ia now an im
mense continent. Her weatlh was then compara
tive poverty. Her resources are now actually ex
baustleaa. [Cheers. ] Her greatness, too, bears a
fair proportion to her physical development. There
is in her physical configuration everything to de
light the eye and exalt the imagination; »he has
the noblest mountain*, the most extended lake*, the
widest rivers, the richest prairie*. And in harmo
ny with thi* i* the progress of her genius, and her
moral prineiple* and the great elevation of her po
litical maxims. [Cheer*]
When Americans look back at the short period
during which their country baa existed upon the
theatre of the world, they have, therefore, some
reason to be proud—[cheers]—nay, I go further.
This great country, whence sprang the chief stock
of the United State*, haa reason to be proud.—
[Cheer*.] In all ojir great characteristics we may
tie said to resemble the people of Great Britain.—
We are brave—[cheer*]—we are commercial; we
are free; aud perhaps, in seme respects, we trans
cend them in having carefully separated civil and
religious liberty. (Cheers ] But resemblance ef
thi* sort, genUeweo, instead of being the cause of
harmony and union are often the caase of difficul
ty and (impute Two brave men are equally fear
leas of each other; one will never yield to the other
on a point of bettor, and therefore they sometimes
cofie into collision. Two merchants pursuing the
same course of adventure will sometimes find
their interact* cUib,
The spirit el the press, too, which, in toe coun
tries, should ever be free, often bring* en • state
of feeling which requires to be dealt with by the
wUe*t and most conciliatory measure*. (Mod
cheers) It is a matter of sincere regret, bat
perhaps it ie In the order of Providence, that the
freest nation* are not always the sincerest friends.
(Hear, hear) I cordially concurred in the first,
second and third toasts that were proposed With
regard to the second, permit me to observe that.
If there la one feature of the American character
more prominent than another, it la the beanl®***
with which they receive the toast of the lady
whose name is alui6*t foremost in the heart* of
Englishmen (Load cheer*) I ask mj coun
trymen who are acquainted with the univereal
•pirit of America, who know the extent to which
we earry our civilisation, whether we de net
atway* drink n double bumper to the ladiee in
t (Cheer# and iMfh

General Oadwatader said—l aat really giad,
Mr. Chairman, of the opportunity of meeting mj
distinguished fellow countrytaea, whom you have
invited ta a quiet way to ceLabrate the 4th of July.
The American people at large are a helpful, in
structed people, aud believe that the pen is stronger
than the a word, f Cheer* ] Naturally left to them
selves they prise tbe comfort* of peace, aad if a
difficulty should arise with any aatioa, tt will pro
bably ttndiuorigialna national characteristic —
Sir, shall we say that we belong to tbe genua irri
tabil* ["Hear, hear," and a laugh.] We are a par
ticularly sensitive race, and we need net I among
ourselves) disguise the faet that difficulty may
arise from some unwise, untruthful, unchristlan-
Uke irritatioa. Ia all kindaeaa be it spoken, the
example is before us; I believe the public press ia
England can hold In ita hand the key to the Ame
rican heart. [Cheers ] My countrymen are na
turally disposed to respect themselves, and feel
kindly disposed towards England. Be assured,
sir, the American daughter is of herself willing to
h*re her breast to nurture and sustain her venera
ble parent | Cheers]
I am confident, if her Majesty the Queen or
her royal consort [for the Queen is a lady, and the
American people are a gallant people] should visit
her dominions in Canada and return home through
tbe United States, that the royal progress would
be every where hailed with aa much respect and
as much enthusiasm as would be shown by her
own loyal subjects. [Cheers. 1 There is, in the
United States a large conservative class who are
entirely removed from the arena of politics; and I
can say that these good people think tbat that the
publie press in England can well afford to consult
the national peculiarities of each other. Allow
tn», sir, to propose the toast I have ia my hand—
'"Great Britain and the United States; frank inter
course, cordial friendship and perpetual peace be
tween them," [drunk with immense cheering )
The concluding toast of "The Ladies" having
been given by Mr. Peabody, the company separa

gratified with their evening's entertainment.
The national airs of the two countries were play

C. Jordan, Esq, gives the Cleveland Herald the
following Incident* of tbe terrible casualty :
p * MM, t* r * by the Northern la
'"I*1 of Waverly, 111., a young
»ehool ia Philadel
phla, aad waa returning homeward unattended —
lwt WheD the Mississippi
came near, a young woman waa s«en hanging by
tbe ropes over the bow, nearly reachlar ths -Lf
Whfle so clinging, to «ve her
to descend by the same rope, and soon straek the
young woman s hands, loosening her hold. She
sank Into the water aad rose no mora, it was not
kaowa whether the bum who waa the cause of this
result, waa aware that another unfortunate wu
clinging for life to tbe aame rope.
Mra. Akreyd, a lady emigrating to the West re
cently from England, waa saved, aad was tbe only
•nrviver of her party, which included her father
mother, husband and two children. None of the
property and money belonging to the family was
saved, the father and huaband having their fond*
in jold Mcnrtd in A bolt sround their persons —
Mrs A, we are informed, was so overcome by her
situation, and the loss of her friends, that she be
came insane.
The Detroit Tribune, of Friday, relate* the fol
lowing incidents:
There was on tbe ill-fated steamer Northern In
diana, alone mother with four children. Satisfy
ing herself that the destruction or the boat was in
evitable, and that the wide waters of the lake was
the dernier and almost hopeless resort, tbe noble
woman eoolly cast her eyes about for the beat se
curity for her four little onesand herself Looking
over the side of tbe vessel she saw a table floating
nearby. Quickly she calculated the chances-
Then binding three of her children to herself, she
gently lifted the fourth over the side of tbe vessel
and dropped him into the lake, driecting him to
"Keep still and float on the water." Having done
this, she" next jumped into the water herself with
her three little ones.
In a few moments she seized the floating table,
placed the three little ones upon it,then sought and
secured her fourth child, and getting them all
upon if, she clung to it herself until all were final
ly rescued by .the boats and placed upon tbe
steamer Mississippi, where the noble woman was
heartily cheered and congratulated by the passen
gers on the steamers, who bad been anxiously
watching all her movements, aad who manifested
their regard for her heroism with warm hearts
and unstrung purses. Such a woman deserves to
be a mother.
About one-half of those saved lost their all, and
are nearly destitute, some entirely so. One man
and his wife had $3 000, their all, with which tbey
were going West to purchase a farm. They lost
all, and hardly clothing to cover them left An
other maa going West frith his family and $500,
all his savings for years, had all lost. A poor wo
man with four children, the oldest about eight
years old, lost everything, but saved their lives.—
Another woman, wi/h two children, one at tbe
breast, was saved with her little ones, but nothing
else.

CORRESPONDENCE O THE DISPATCH.
Old Point Comfort, Ju1y,23,1856.
Dkar Dispatch:—lf in olden time this place de
served its name,bow much more does it at the pre
sent. Some have doubted its claims to comfort,
and allude to the heat, and crowd, and bad accom
modations to sustain their doubts. But where has
it not been hot on such days as Friday last? ,Here
it was hot, but at night as on every night, the sea
breezes cool the atmosphere, and diffuse them
selves through the bail room, and sleeping apart
moots, and give freshness, and health, and vigor
to the languid frame. As to crowd, we have Uat
to contend with at every waterlog place, and here
the proprietors will not permit any excessive, and
uncomfortable crowding. And as to accommoda
tions, the most gurruious and complaining can
raise no objections. Everything that can minister
to' creature comfort is furnished liberally by
friend* Segar and Stegal, and to them the public
are under lasting obligations. The tables (of which
there are thirty circular ones in the dining room—
a great improvement en the long table) are sup
plied with everything to tempt the tcost dainty ap
petite—sheeps head, hog fish, soit crabs, tbe best
muttfin and beef, and the most delicious wines. I
wish yourself and friends could transport them
selves here for a few days, to test the truth of my
assertions, and if yon have any old Bachelor friends
on yonr list do send them down to Old Point, and
if their stocism and indifference to female charms
is not dispelled as by the magic wand of the en
chanter, by the beauty and sweetness of the ladies
here collected, then you may resign them to their
hard and unenviable fate, and write them down a*
"old Bachelors" "in perpetuo." If it were not in
vidious I might particularize and tell you the
names of some of these fair representatives of
flesh and blood. Tour city should come in for a
large share of praise. We love to hear tell of the
beauty and perfection of our mothers, of their wo
manly dignity, of their industry, of their rosy
cheeks, their perfection of form, their maidenly re
serve, their propriety of manner, and of every
thing which "would give the world assurance of
a woman.'' But our observations at "Old Point
Comfort" assure us that the "Old Dominion" 2u
regards her women is not degenerate, save perhaps
in respect to the "rosy cheek," and the neglect (in,
I fear, many cases) of physical education.
To give you some idea of tbe spirit of accommo
dation wbich actuates the present proprietor, I may
mention an incident A young lady, after perform
ing on the piano, which bad been in the parlor for
several years, arose with a wish that a good one
might be supplied to the visitors for their use. In
three days thereafter, a splendid piano was sent
down (per order) by A. Morris, of yonr city.
The number of visitors here is estimated at from
400 to 600. There arc none particulatly distin
guished among them. Mrs. Col Fremont is not
here as reported, though she has been at Hampton.
The amusements are tbe dance, sailing, ten pins,
fishing, billiards, and, unfortunately for some
"green ones," the "tiger," which crouches in prox
imity to tbe billiard rooms, and springs with cer
tain bound upon those who are so unwise as to put
themselves in his way, for though they may e».
cape for awhile his destructive fangs, their ultimate
tale is none the less certain.
The cool nights and good band, the beauty and
grace of the women, toe manliness, and gallantry,
and spirit of the other sex, give zest and life to
the dance, and "all goes merry as a marriage belL"
Of the amusements, I should not have omitted the
promenade on the beach and lamparta. Some
noted points with the over watching moon, and the
sea breeze kissing "the soft cheek's blooming
tinge," and the ever beating wave, could in all pro
bability tell many a tale of whispered love and
registered vows.
The season here commenced earlier, and wld
continue later than usual, and will, altogether,
be very successful. Many visitor* have determin
ed to remain until the Ist of August, and probably
longer. The absence of malaria about Old Point
until at least September, the freedom from mo»qui
toes, that great pest of sea bathiug places, will in
duce many to prolong their pleasant stay. That
bugbear, too, of yellow fever in Norfolk, baa ceased
to frighten the most timid.
I* it not turprisiug that Southern* will (till seek
Northern watering places when our own offer se
many inducements, and subject themselves to the
insult* of men who, in mock philanthropy, are ever
harping on the evils of slavery, and of insolent
menials who make it their special business to in
•nit Southern gentlemen t
The position of your paper on this point sboold
commend itself to the'people of the Mouth, and I
trust that you will (till endeavor to inculcate the
propriety of the cessation of the vassalage of the
Southern States to those of the North. P.

Stealing a Cote—On Thursday night last, as
watchmen Andrews and Jude were making their
rounds in the lower part of the city, they discov
f* ed * negro fellow named David, slave to James
II Grant, in pursuit of a milch cow, and not
knowing his object, they determined to watch bis
movements. After following him to Church Hill
they saw him throw a rope around the auiuiai's
borue s and then start her off at a rapid pace —
Looking upon such conduct as suspicious, they put
after and caught him, when he stated that the
cow belonged to Mr Hunter, and that he bad been
*rat to hunt her up and bring her home. Not be
lieving this yarn, they made the necessary inqui
ry, found the statement to be utterly false, and
took David to the lockup. Yesterday morning
he was brought before the Mayor, and after a hear
ing, was ordered to the valley, there to receive tbe
just and full compliment of thirty stripes.
J iciout Dog—L. J. Boissieus was sommoned
before the Mayor yesterday, to show cause why
he should not be fined for keeping a vicious dog.
Some few afternoons since, L. Unheals little child,
and one or two others, were at play in the street,
with Mr. Fisher's dog, when Mr. B.'s puppy ran
out, caught the little fellow, threw bim down, and
bit him slightly. Mr. B. aaid he was compelled to
keep a dog to prevent tresspassers in his yard —
He always kept his puppy chained, and bis gate
clescd. but on the evening of the occurrence the
dog ran through Mr. Fisher's house, on hearing
the noise of the children and threw one of them
down. The dog was ordered to be killed if again
found atlage.
Good Enterprise —We understand that the Rev
Petherbridge has purchased a lot on 25tb
street, Church Hill, on which he intends erecting
a building for a male Academy. He is to be asso
ciated with Rev. T. H. Jones, and as both gentle
men are experienced teachers, and, in addition to
an English training, intend to prepare their scho
lars for a regular Collegiate coarse, we have no
doubt that they will meet with abundant success.
Educational Convention.—Oar report of the "Ed'
ucalioual Convention," published yenterday mora
ine, tu rendered almost unintelligible by the care
less mixing together of the proceeding* of Wed
nesday afternoon and Thursday morning The re
port made by Dr. Jttnklu belonged to and sboold
have appeared in Thursday morning's proceedings,
immediately after the remarks submitted by Presi
dent Smith. With this explanation, the reader can
readily understand the proceedings as published—
Errors of this kind are always annoying; but Id
daily papers, where every thing is done with elec
trie speed, they sometimes occur.
Should be paved.—The City Council should have
Dock street paved this summer, regardless ot cost,
if no other street improvement is made, for. when
wet weather sets in, it is almost impossible for
wagons to pass along it to aDd from vessels wltb
loads of merchandise. No work of this character
can fairly be termed a Ward improvement, for the
reason that the whole city is interested in the ship
ping, and needs a good highway to get to the dock.
We presume that Madison and Monroe Wards are
even more deeply interested in Dock street than
Jefferson, because both of them have greater need
of getting to the shipping than Jefferson Ward,
and it is therefore a little singular that every mem
ber of tbe Council is not prepared to vote an sp»
propriation for making this important highway a
convenient and accessible one at once.
Broad Rock Races —Mr. Green, the Proprietor of
Broad Hock, is making extensive arrangements
for the fail meeting over that course. The purses
are to be liberal, and if Northern gentlemen will
bring on their stables, they will have an excellent
•pportunity of tesiing the speed and endurance of
their stock.
Scrrrt Fall —At a late honr last Wednesday
evening, a stranger in crossing the footway on
Main street, Uocketts, uuder which the Hicnmond
and York River Raihoad is to pass, fell into the
cut below, a distance of twenty feet, bruising his
person in several places, and Injuring severely one
of his legs. Those who law the fall expressed
surprise that he was not instantly killed.
A Good Order —The Mayor has Informed the
teamsters of the city that their drivers will, in fu
ture be severely punished, whenever eangbtin
the act of driving their teams at a faster gait than
a walk. The Police have been instructed to keep
an eye to these fellows, and to take them into
custody whenever they see them violate the or
dinance against rapid driving in any part of the
city.
The Health of the City, we are gratified to find,
continues good, though there are occasional ca* -n
of dysenteric disease* amongst yourfg and old. If
our people wish to continue in the enjoyment of
health, they must guard against the imprudent use
of unripe fruit*, and gieen, stale meilons with
which the marketa are flooded. If fresh and ripe
the moderate use of these articles is not considered
injurious, but the stomach should not be overload
ed and burdened with them even then. Claanii
liness, prudence in eating, proper hours at sight
and an avoidance of unnecessary excitement are
all essential at this seam of the year, when the
strongest constitution* are weakened and the moat
powerful syatems debilitated by excessive heat.
Let our readers bear these fact* in mind, and
thereby guard against all manner of *icknesa and
disease.
