or an increase of abont ninety per cent. The pro
babilities are that this rate of increase of public
debt will continue throughout the present year
so that our debt in July 1859 will not be less than
eighty million* of dollars. The present expendi
tures of the Government are, including interest
on debt, ninety millions of dollars. This expen
diture after allowing lor the borrowod receipts

dollars of foreign foods, or about $15 for each

greatly in excess of our present trade, with an
increasing national debt, as the alternative to a
bankrupt government. On the other hand, we
find by the Custom House records that our ex
ports for tht present year will probably not be
over three hundred millions of dollar*. To «bow
the truth or this statement we give the following
official figures:

percentage, the total exports will not be much
over two hundred mill ious of dollars.
MCRDIR AND SUICIDE AT lIARTtoKD, CoN.v.—Chris,
topher Colson, who for many years has been en<
gaged as a fish dealer in Hartford, Conn., cut bis
wife's throat Monday, killing her instantly. He
had been divorced from his wife for the year past-
The Courant says:
Saturday night last be slept at the house of his
brother, .lames U. Coleon, baker, No. 54 South
Hudson street. The bouse is occupied by four
families. Mr. Colson living on the first floor in
the north half. Christopher was sitting in oneof
the basement rooms, in conversation with a Mr.
Barker, when his former wife, who has since the
divorce taken her maiden narae of Sarah Burns,
came in from her mother's. Colson advance! to
his wife, and endeavored to take her haud, but
she repulsed him with the remark "that her
nand was now her own, and that she did not
wish to have anything to do with him." She then
attempted to leave the room, when he followed
her, caught ber by the dress behind, and eut
her throat from the right ear to a point j'ist
below the chin, makiug two horrible gashes,
severing the carotid artery, and partially sev
ering the jugular vein. He manifested very
little passion or feeling of any kiud, but remark
ing that he'hoped she was satisfied,' threw his
bloody weapon—a large two-edged fish knife—un
der the table, and proceeded leisurely to the pan
try, where he commenced devouriog some pies
that were stored there. The inmates of the houso
were, of course, thrown into the greatest conster
nation aud excitement by the terrible event that
had just transpired. Some attempt was made to
arrest the murderer, but he was so much held in
dread by those present, who feared that he might
be still armed, that he was allowed, after he had
eaten and drank what be wanted, U»-leave the
house unmolested. From the hotel he walked
in a leisurely manner np Ferry street till he came
nearly opposite the old Bartlett tavern, where he
was arrested."
On Tuesday, while in prison, he took a ijuantify
of opium, and died in a few hours from the effects*
CarrtiS'j a Steamboat Overland.—A writer in
the St. Paul Mlnnesofiao, dating at Crow Wing,
says: ,
' About the Bth instant, the work of taking to
pieces the Auiou Northrup atd preparing the
frame of the new boat was commenced; and to
dty, the 19th February, the whole portable frame
of the boat, boiler, engines, machinery tools,
amounting to more than fitly tons of freight, be
sides stores and baggage of the men, and hay for
the teams, is packed upon sleighs, and thirty
teams are trudging away with their load over the
prairies and through the pineries toward the lied
River of the North. The boiler and the heavy ma
chinery must be hauled on runners a distance of
one hundred and sixty.five miles. The new por
tions of the boat will be taken from Swan river,
one hnndred and ninety mile*. The boat, which
is to bear the appropriate name of the "Pioneer,"
is to be one hundred feet long, twenty feet beam,
with a depth of four (eet in the hold, and is calcu
lated to carry from seventy-five to on# hundred
tons of freight. The train is accompanied by
about forty teamsters and mechanics, who will
commence work as soon as they reach Ked Hiver,
and the boat will probably be in tunning order by
the first of May. The road is good as far as the
Otter Tail City, and teams have been through to
Ked River during the past week, so that the track
is probably well broken all the way.''
A Fchool Difficulty at Boston —The Catholic
children attending the Kliot and other schools in
Boston have refused to participate in the opening
devotional exercises, including the Lord's prayer
and the ten commandments. This hRs caused
considerable excitement, and some two hundred
of the Catholic scholars have absented themselves
from Eliot school. It appears the scholars were
forbidden to participate in the religious exercises
by their pastors, but the school committee deter
mined to adhere to their regulations, notwith*
Standing.
A Kbfak fcl tub Winp —A few days ago, a well
known gentleman named Joseph Locke, a contrac
tor aud builder in St. Louis, went to the Mecha
nic's Bank and drew out |180 in $10 bills, for the
purpose of paying his employees. Ingoing down
the steps of the bank, with the eighteen bills iu
bis hand, a sudden gust of wind blew off his hat.
Iu throwing up his hand to recover bis hat he lost
possession of the bills,which were instantly taken
by the wind in circling eddies upwarls. Mr. L.'s
loss by the operation was Ilis feelings
as he saw the bank's promises to pay slowly sail*
ing ever the hinse tops, nre much more pleasant
to describe than entertain.
Commerce of New Orleans. —There is no immedi
ate prospect of relief to the commerce of New Or»
leans. The report ot the Kngineer employed, says
it will reqnire four mouths' labor and tho expen
diture of over one hundred thousand dollars to
open the southwest pass. On the Oth instant 05, •
000 bales of cotton were then detained on shipboard
in cooseqnenco of tho vessels being unable tocross
the bar. Among the ships detained below were
,-eight from lijstnn having on board several thous
and tnns ot ice.
|fl,oi»n Ltons. —Tho reported arrival of the frl
g»t« Cnracoa, with f-ord Lyons, the new British
minister on board, is contradicted by the New
York papers of Monday afternoon. The evening
Post says:
The British Consul at this port had up to noon
to-day received no intelligence of his arrival. He
had telegraphed to Sandy Hook to make inquiry,
but no such vessel as the Coracoa bad boen report
ed there. The probability that the whole report
in a mistake is enhanced Iroin the fact that the
Curacoa is tinder orders to proceeed direct to
Chesapeake Bay, and land Lord Lyons at Annapo
lis, without coming first to New York.
A State in Mourning — The New Orleans Pica
yune speaks of Louisiana a* a "State in mourn
ing,"consequent upon the explosion of the stea
mer Princess. It says, "there is scarcely a oom
ti: unity from which some one of the lost is not
missing, or to it known by his social virtues."—
The fatality among prominent citizens was re
markable, and the State may well mourn its loss
As Kfricrivr. Weapon.—At a levee held by
Queen Victoria on the '£\i ultimo, the honor of
knighthood was conferred on Captain Armstrong,
in acknowledgement of his new Invention in ar
tillery, by which an «ffective cannonade can be
carried on at a distance of eight miles. Ila bns

Ar*p.st op Ttit Supposed Foroek is Bostox.—The
telegraph lias announced the arrest in Boston
of a man named Oiborn alia* Turner, tnpposed to
be tbe person who forged a check on Paul Ilinton
A Co., of Petersburg, Va„ $4,100, and got it cashed
by Sutton A Hnders, of Richmond. Tho Boston
Ledger eays:
The New York detectives were placed on the
track of the supposed forger. Osborn was the
name the person gave who presented the check,
hot it was afterwards found that he had another
name of Turner. The shrewdness of the detectives
was at once brought to work in the case, and it
was ascertained by a certain description of his bag*
gage, that a man answering Osbarn alias Turner's
description had departed for Boston. Information
was at once sent to this city, and detective officer
Heath placed on the track of the individual. lie
learned that the person described arrived here last
Monday afternoon, and during the week he was
busily engaged iu ferreting out the supposed
guilty party. Last Saturday afternoon, after a
diligent search of Ave days, he traced the trunk of
the supposed forger to the National House. Hay
market Square, and after examining the register
aud not iioding the names of Osborn or Turner
there, be examined the baggageaud fjund the long
looked for articles, marked with a big "A," but
gome names, partly obliterated, were to be seen
also. Edward Argentin was the man who owned
the property, and on being found, answered the
description of the man who was described to have
received the money so well, that Mr. Argentin
was taken into custody, and on being examined.
$1500 on the Tremont Bank of this city, fSOO ob
ttio Bank of the Metropolis, and a small amount
in gold, was found in his possession.
In the Police Court, yesterday afternoon, before
Justice Maine, Argontin was arraigned for forgery
and held in $0000 (or his appearance Wednesday
morning. Iu the meanwhile, one of the firm of
the bankets will Arrive in this city, and have an
opportunity of identifying the accused. Mr. Ar
gentin is about six feet high, rather slouder, and
in his appearance has the look of a person in ill
health. The description answers in every respect,
and although there was no positive proof, the
dodge thought that justice demanded his deten»
tion until he could be seet» by Mr. Knders, who
telegraphed yesterday afternoon, the dispatch be«
lug received while the Court was in sessiou.
The Washington Tragedt.—The Washington
correspondent of the New York Times, writing on

that the preeent jail be thefl remodelled and

carried ont, will Involve the necetaliy of building
a new achool bourn at some other polot, while the
jail will atill be so far from the court house* that
criminal* will have to be carried through the
•treeta, to the detriment of public moral*. The
old jail will answer very well for a house of cor

Sospiciods Chabactibs —Yesterday
morning three lads—Robert Heath aliat Bob Rid

arraigned beOre the Mayor, charged with being
suspicious characters, and believed by tbe police
to bo a portion of the gang of young desperadoes,
whose feat* at breaking and stealing have
eicited the city »o much within the paat aix
week* What proof there is for this *u*picion we
are unable lo *ay, ns the examination of the pria

three bojg have been in jail on aeveral occasions,
and all three of tbem have been before the Mayor

forgery, he could not be sent on for felony; and if
indicted for misdemeanor, a jury would acquit him
on the groutyl that the forgery was a felony, aud
that therefore the misdemeanor would of neceisi
ty be merged into the felony. He was, however,
arrcated for debt, immediately on his release from
criminal prosecution.
Wood Inspkctoe —If inspections of
auy sort are neceasary, none ia more ao than that
of cord wood. The practice among wood chop
per* has been almost universal of cutting tbe
wood but three and a half instead of four feet long,
and to protect our citizens against thi* imposition,
an Inspector would be well employed. A friend
itifirma us that he ha* seon wood onlv three feet
long, stacked aud sold by the cord, as if it were
four feet, thus making purchasers pay for one cord
when they received but three quarter* of a cord.
Such traffic 1* unfair, aud should be guarded
against.

Pa., the police have captured a whole family
named McCleary, who for a long time have been
manufacturing and "shoving" counterfeit money.
Tilt Pittsburgh Despatch *ay» :
Ob searching tb* taonse, counterfeit money waa
found in almost every nook and cranny. Slugs
of composition for making bogus silver and gold
coin, melting pots, and pans; tools for finishing
the coins, and all the apparatus necessary in car>
rylug on the business extensively, except the
moulds. Rolls of counterfeit bills, and note* on
broken bank*,die*, vignette*, etc , from genuine
bills of broken or worthless bank* cutout car*,
fully, and ready for"rai«log," every denomination
of genuine bill* were alio found secreted in the
bouse. The precise amount of the counterfeit
bill* i* not known; it 1* estimated from $500 to
$1,000. Overuse hundred and twenty dollarain
bogua quarter eagles, (two and a half dollar gold:
coins) and thirty-seven gold dollars were found,
together with a large number of composition
dimes, quarters, etc. The coin is well calculated
to deceive; many of the coins can only be detected
by their light weight. The counterfeit* were
generally of a flimsy deacription, though lome of
it wonld deceiveany but good judge*.
On searching the elder McCleary, seventy dol
lar* wete found in counterfeit Ave on the Mer
chants Bank of Virginia. The counterfeit bill*
found in the bouse were of all denomination*,
principally on Virginia and Ohio bank*. When

deavored to throw a number of the bogus coins
into the fire, or back.of the grate, but the move
ment was detected by the noiae of the failing
coins, and they were immediately seized and se
cured by officer M'Vicker, despite the efforts of
one of the women to obtain them. Bath had

night to honor the anniversary of the birth of
Genernl Washington. It took place in the mag
nificent dining room of the Hotel do Louvre; the
•honors were done by the United States Minister
and the Consul, assisted by a committee of Ameri
can gentlemen. A reception at the Tuileries on
the same night prevented persons from coming
early; bnt still the attendance, though not so
crowded as on the last occasion, was very fair.—
The facade of the hotel on the Hue da itivoli side
was lighted up with gas, and the steps leading to
the hall were adorned with flowers At the up«
per end of the ball room was the (strade fjr the
orchestra, with the portraits of Washingtoa
and Lafayette, and the American flag encircling
them overhead. At theopposite or entrance end
was a marble bust of the champion of American
independence, with an appropriate inscription
above, and on each side were the full length por.
traits of the Kmpororaud Kmpresa. The hall was
brilliantly lighted up. Of the invitations sent lo
persons not citizens of the United States, 21, were
for the family of General Lafayette. Dancing
commenced at 11 o'clock, and was kept up to a late
hour."
