Money was abundant, with signs of greater stringency. United States slocks remained unchanged Ttnl Last ! the Packet Ship Hotting and Thirteen Llv... The splendid New York packet ship Hot linger, Capt. Bursley, has fallen a prey to the fury of the elements, and frorj the tenor of the last accounts lespccling her, a melan choly loss of life attends the disaster. The Hottinger sailed from Liverpool for New York on the 1st January. She had 290 cabin and steerage passengers, together with the captain, and crew of thirty men and boys, and had a very full freight of various descrip tions of goods. The H. had only passed as f.ir as Black water Bank, which is off the coast of Wex ford, when she struck on one of those danger ous ledges of rock which lie concealed in that quarter. This occurred on the morning of the llth January. On the occurrence of this mishap, a part of the crew and all the pas eengers were sent ashore. ' Captain Bursley and 18 of his men, re mained on board of the H., determined not to leave the ship while there was the remo test chance of saving her. On the following tnorning, the 13ih, the ship floated ofT Black Water Bank, and bore away before the wind, and struck Arklow Bank, where she after wards went to pi-iccs, and sad to relate, Cap tain Bursley and twelve of the noble band who determined to be the last on the ship, met a watery grave. At the time the pas sengers left the ship, her situation seemed to be utterly hopeless. The hold was full of water, and the sea making clear breaches over her. It was with cxtreinw difficulty and peril that the passengers and seamen were passed to the boats, the sea breaking with dreadful violence on the bank. The passengers were unable to take anything out of tho ship except the clothes they hud on at the time. The boats happily succeeded in reaching the shore, although with extreme difficulty, from the height of the seas, and the great distance ef seven miles or more from tho bank to the land. Capt. Bursley's son, whe was on board the Hottinguar up to t lie time she struck on Blackwa'.er Bank, it a passenger on board the Europa. THE FRENCH REPUBLIC. Business progresses slowly in the legisla lative Assembly. The budget is still in com mittee. The Chamber had been for some time occupied with M. Falloux's Education Bill. The latent Parisian advices represent Victor Hugo as having made a speech against it, which was applauded with f-enzy bylhe Mountain. The debute adjourned, amid great excitement. The war against the press continues. The Reformo has been suspended, and La Prestf seized. The weather throughout France, especially in the South, has been more rigorous than for many years.

In Wurteinburg there appears to Le a ohanja of opinion favorable to Russian influ ence. The Hanoverian Chamber refuses to recog nize the central commission of Austria and Prussia.

Hither to, when we have neglected to secure the ice while her broad bosom wa fast locked in its embrace, she has, en pnssent, piled huge cake of the cold comfort upon our bank. Indeed we were not thus neglected thi season ; but the warm rains and warmer sunbeams, intended, doubtless, to gladd.-n us on some April day, slipped prematurely from the shelf and melted away the fickle foundation upon which our hope were built. E7 Mail Robbery. Another mail rob bery has been committed on the route from Muncy, via Danville, to Philadelphia. A letter containing 500 mailed at Muncy for Philadelphia is missing. An Agent of the Post Oflice Department has been on the line for several days, trying to ferret out the robber, but as yet has been unsuccessful.

M., in Dennison's Exchange ; from which it rapidly extended to the Parker House. The flames surged over the Parker House to the United States Restaurant, both of which were soon totally destroyed. From these the fire spread in every direc tion consuming whole squares, and raged so fiercely that no goods could be removed from the stores and warehouses in its course. The amount of losses probably exceeds a a million and a half. - A destructive fire also occurred in Stock ton, on the same day. By this calamity about 150,000 worth of property hat been consumed. An atrocious murder wa committed on the 14th December, at the Bella Union, in San Francisco, by a fashionable man fnm New York, Reuben Withers upon the per son of Arthur Reynolds. The parties had no previous acquaintance with each other and the assault was entirely unprovoked. The alcalde has offered reward of 93000 for the apprehension of the murderer. A difficulty occurred between the miners at Calaveres, and some Chilenos. Three Americans were killed. It is feared that a general outbreak between the Americans and Foreigner will result.

The arrival of so sensible and experienced a man as Dr. Gwin, Senator elect from Cali fornia, cannot but be productive of good at the present crisis in the affairs of our coun try. Ha is, as you nre aware, a Mijjissip pian, has always been a warm Calhoun man; and yet is so thoroughly impressed with the moral and physicul impossibility of introduc ing slavery juto any part of California, north or south of 30 deg. 30 tnin., that his opinions cannot fail to exercise a commanding influ ence on the deliberations nf Congress. Nei ther he, nor the delegation, (Messrs. Wright and Gilbert.) are over anxious for the admis sion of California during the present session, provided that, by waiting, the excitement on the slavery question can be allayed, and peace established between the Southern and Northern sections of the Union. Now, if the Members and Senators elect of that State are willing lo bide their time, why should not the fanatics of either section, who have only a distant prospective good or evil at stake, imi tate their example 1 The Quaker petit ion, praying for a peace able dissolution of tha Union, presented by Mr. Hale, of New Hampshire, was to day, after much useless dicuion on Friday last, rejected by a vote of 53 to 3 the only Sena tors voting for ilt admission being Seward Chase and Hula. Among these three Hale is believed the most honest man, all three, however, have pretty nearly run their race in the Senate. As to Gov. Seward, his politi cal epitaph seems already to have been writ ten. It runs thus "If I muni sr Ht be June for, I wonder whet I wai begun f.v ?" It is rather a hard case, for a Presidential candidate of these United Staten, to vote for tho admiss.on, of petitions praying forlhedis olution of the Union ! Gen. Cass made a most excellent, philo sophical and statesmanlike speech on the subject of this peaceable dissolution of the Union, which is really a most mischievous and gross humbug. He showed lhat disso lution and war are one and inseparable ; that the bnnleit of the two sections into which the Union would be divided would, in less than a year, briolle with hostile bayonets; lhat every hill wotilJ have its works of de fence, and that our standing aimies would be devouring the cubKtaiice of our people And he al showed that the rilitof petition, in regard lo which so much fuss is made, is just nothing at all. In a monarchy it is most important that the subject should be heard ; but in this country the people themselves are sovereign, tnd the proper way lo present pe tition! it through the preat and the ballot boxes. Where every office in the country is in Ihe gift of the people in a country where elections never ceate where the people have a right to demand and instruct, and ex press their sentiments on all public occasions, the right of petition hat no more meaning than the dubbing of knighthood. Gen. Cast understands the difference between our go vernment and the superanuiited monarchical forms of Europe boiler than any statesman here in Washington, and is always striking and conclusive in hit comparisons. These are quest ions taking higher rank than lhat of the right of petition, and among these are assuredly those which relate to the perma nency of our institutions and of the Union. Mr. Berrie'i, to-day, commenced his speech on the Slavery question, dissenting in toto from Mr. Clay, and from Ihe administration. 1 am sorry lo say Mr. Clay' Compromise Resolution! will not receive more than five or six votes, if indeed to many. Mr. Cal houn will speak on Thursday or Friday. In Executive Session, lo-day, Gen. James Walton Webb, "at I predicted," wat reject, ed by an overwhelming vole. Out of all the Senators, but $even voted for hit confirmation. A large number were absent, avoiding the respontibility of Ihe Courier and Enquirer General Cats, Col. Benton and Harry Clay, voted agaiutt him wiih more or less feeling. I ran imagine how Mr. Clay's eyes sparkled when be saw lhat head cul off which had been to sotive in procuring Ihe nomination of JOUKNAT,. General Taylor. The excuse given for Mr. Webb's early departure was that there was no Minister or Diplomatic Aaent at Vienna, and that, in the absence of a diplomatic func tionary, the archives of the American Lega tion had been left with our U. S. Consul. Mr Schwartz, who it was hinted might not be a proper person to entrust them with. Stuff! We shall have Ihe President's Message in regard to California on Wednesday. I think it will be an able document, and the most explicit wo have yet had from General Tay- lor, on the subject of slavery. In the House, the Revenue Resolutions, a. lowing Mr. Meredith the same sum for col lecting the public revenue as was expended for lhat purpose in the fiscal year terminating June 30th, were taken out of the Committee of the Whole, charged with the Vinton amendment as a rider, and in that shape voted down with great unanimity So the question stands just as it stood when it left the Senate, and Mr. Meredith has had his pains for his trouble. This, however is not all. To-morrow the Democrats of Ihe House will carry the war into Africa, and attack Mr. Meredith's estimates in detail going from bureau to beureau, and examining each particular item. The truth is, we are des tined to try a new experiment, viz: that of carrying on an administration with boih Houses of Congress opposed to it ; and 1 must ronfessit does not look as though it were likely to succeed. There is no Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, but quite enough of all colors to defeat Ihe ad ministration. Obferver. LETTER FROM IIARRIABl'RO. HAURissuan. Feb. 12, 1850. My dear American, The mania for making new Counties it raging throughout Ihis state to an alaiming degree. At each day's session of either housei floods of petitions for, and lemonstrances a- gainst, Ihe multiplication of counties is poured in upon us. Redstone, Conawago, Lacknwa na, Madi-on, Montour, Mahoning, Pine, Prnn and a host of other are urged with vehe mence by their respective friends, who are, no doubt, actuated by the desire of serving their country ns public officers, and find too many eompe'ilors in their extensive fields. Among the rest, are our friends in upper end of old Northumberland, urging with all their strength, the legislature to mutilate again the remains of our county. The latter have not the slightest chance of success, although their hopes nre sanguine. Our worthy Senator is expected to make his maiden speech in fa vor of this movement. His constituents, no doubt, look with anxiety for something from him, his uninterrupted silence having left them uncertain whether or not they have a representative in that body. An effort it also being made to dismember another portion of Northjmberlnnd county, and form, with it and parts ol Shuylkill and Columbia, an Eaclk county. It is time our lawmakers give a qnief us to these voracious politicians. We have now more than CO comities in thit Commonwealth Every petition for a new one, spring! from either some petty local animosity, or a hope of speculation, motives which are alike dis creditable to the petitioners an.l the dignity of the legislature. And yet these very men who make pretentions of retrenchment and re:"prm, are not satisfied with the taxes that now br.rden the people, but would add to the overload. We have a rumor, for the correctness of which I will not vouch, lhat a scene occurred between our Canal Commissioner Painter anil Capt. George Lanman. The latter urged the aptmintmetit of some friend by tho Canal Commissioners, and received a promise from Mr. Painter, that his suit should prosper. Within a few days he was" astonished by the intelligence tl at another person had been ap pointed. He immediately charged Mr. Pain ter with being false lo his word and madu some very severe comments npon his course. Mr. Painter called him to his room, on Ihe following morning, and having bolted the door, announced that if Mr. Lauman had made those charges, he would shoot him. Lauman dispelled all doubt upon tha subject by repealing his words, and adding that Mr. Painter not the courage to shoot a cat. He did not shoot him and thit tragedy ended without bloodshed. The following is Ihe only business of in terest to your reader lhat has been Iransac. ted by the legislature thit week : Senate.--7?ifj reported Mr. Frailey (cor porations,) a supplement to tho set incorpo rating the Shamokin, Mahouoy and Schuyl kill railroad company.

Mr. Packer presented petitions for an alter alion in thrt charter of the Lycoming mutual insurance company ; relating to hawkers and pedlars in Union county ; relating to ihe re tailing of ready made cloihing in Union county; for a new county with the teal of jus tice at Tamaqua ; also a bill in place supple mentary lo the act incoropoiating the Locust mountain coal and iron company.

The folly of playing all manner of strange pranks with lions and ti?-rs has just been il lustrated at Chatham, whers a young woman, Ellen Bright, accustomtd lo enter one of the dens of Worn bell's travelling menagerie, and there exhibit, to an audience gaping with as tonishment, her tricks with a lion and a tiger confined together, has met with a shocking death. On entering the'deu fer the purpose of going through the usual performances with the lion, she struck the tiger with a small whip, when the animal growled) then, after completing a part of the performance, she struck the beast again, when rearing up, it seized her by the throat, and inflicted fright ful injuries with its huge fangs. A keeper immediately rushed lo her assistance, and by striking the animal a violent blow on tho nose with an iron bar, succeeded in releasing her; but life was nearly extinct. Sho was immediately attended by a military surgeon who was present, but died in a few minutes, owing lo wounds in the neck and chin, and also to tha shock which her system had re eeived fiom excessive fright. The roronei's jury testified their dislike of ihe practice of allowing persons lo perform in a den occu pied by wild beasts. Thus perished "the Lion Queen," a victim to one of the rem nants of barbarism, which society retains for its amusement perhaps, also, affording a lesson to all invested with "a little brief au thority," Queens and Imperial Ctesars inclu ded, how dangerous it is to use the whip wantonly, and for mwre show of power.
