' . Ml'RDRrt OP SIX CHILIREW BY TIH FOR. MIR NURSE OF THE PRINCE OF AVAL EM. Mrs. B rough, the former Nurse of the Prince of Wales, has recently in London cut the throat of six of her children. Her hus band suspecting her fidelity refused to live with her. . He left the house in a very low and Jejuc ted state, the woman continuing to keep pos session of the bouse, with the six poor chil dren. The discovery of the murder was madu by some workmen who were passing the cottage at an early hour in ihe moruingi end seeing a pillow stained with blood out side one of the windows, knocked at the door. No answer being given, they found the wo man with ber throat cut, but not dead. Two dead children, with wounds in their throats were lying near ber. In the other bedrooms they found four more children who had been murdered. Their throats had been severed with a razor which was lying near. Mr. Izod, a aurgeon, of Either, was sent for, who dressed the wo man's wounds, and she soon recovered sufli- cioiitly to be able to speak. When the wound in the woman's throat was dressed she said that she was sorry she had not done it more effectually. The wretched woman slated that she hsd moro difficulty in cutting Ihe throat of the in fant thnn sho had in killing the other five. 1 he former, she said, caused her a deal of trouble in committing the act, as it was awake, but the others being fast asleep, she killed them easily. The husband, at (Re time the tragedy was Committed, was not in the village, but was understood to have gone lo town, and upon hearing ihe shocking news, was com pletely paralyzed. . The police have been placed in charge of the murderess, to see that she does not make any further attempt to destroy her life by tearing open the wound. During Commodore Perry's lute visit to Japan, himself and suite were entertained at a feast by lha natives. Cooked worms, fried snakes, and a variefy of indigestible com pounds were served up, of which they weie obliged to partake through etiquette. Hure after, a strong stomach may be considered as a high recommendation in our deplomatiats. Tire FfciTJve Law. The Senato of Con necticut has passed a bill providing that hereafter no jail, court-house, or other pub'io building of that State, shall be used for the custody of a fugitive slave, A bill is a'so before the same body which inflicts a fine of $5000 upm any person who shall lay a claim o a fugitive slave iu Hut 5lale, and shall not prove his claim good. The Washington Union administers a se vere but just rebuke lo Jeflerson Davis, the Secretary ol War, who is the most influential member of the Pierce Cabinet and Ihe Suulhern secessionists, when it says: "North or South, the mas of the people of these S'ates place a value upon the Union which will prove a never failm bar to a surrender of those blessings at the instigation of a nerde orgimbliug, speculating t.kavi.h, and I fanatical politicians."

Straub is said to have "placed it out of bit power to be a candidate at this time, by hit own deliberate action at the former convention." As an act of justice, it is. perhaps, proper to say that we have no personal knowledge of such an arrange ment, although we heard at Ihe time that such an arrangement had been made. THE FOURTH OF JILY. That noble . patriot, the elder . John Adams, seventy-eight years ago, forseeing how the national birth-day would be cele brated, said, "it ought to be commemorated as the day of "deliverance, by tolemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations Irom one end of this con tinent to the other, from this time forward for evermore." And so it should be, and so it has been, year after year, and will be, we trust till the end of time. : We are among those who abate not a jot of heart or hope for the Republic. We believe that there is a deep and earnest feeling of patriotism in the universal American mind ; which will build up, sustain and perpetuate our Institutions. Labor it glad to find a holiday wherein it may cease from its toil, and rejoice untrammeled ; the buoyant spirit of youth, tumultuous and noisy, will ever, when the national Jubilee arrive, with guns, squibs and rockets, celebrate its annual advent. The masses will, irom a love of lun, folly, fuss and pagantry greet tho day with a wild and hilarious jubilation. The Declaration of Independence will, year after year, probably forever, be formally read, but this is not, and will not be, we trust, all. A crowd of holy and thronging memories will press upon the heart, and thoughtful minds will cfcall the example ot the great fathers of the republic lor emu lation and immitation. The story of their sacrifices, privations and sufferings handed down from sire to ton, generation after generation, will with a potent, talismanic power move, the deep feelings of the heart to an earnest desire to prove worthy de scendants of noble fathers, fit inheritors and preservers oi tho bequeathed benefits of their final triumph. But we are not intending to peu an eulo gy, but simply to chronicle the proceedings on The Forr-TH or July is SVnoiky. The day was clear and warm, and wa ushered in by ringing of bells and firing of guns, crackers, &c. A decorous "noise and confusion" prevailed from "early dawn till latest eve."

' THE4TII Or JULY IN BHAMOKIN. On our way from Philadelphia we arri ved at Shamokin on the morning of the 4th ins!., and remained there during the day. Extensive preparations had been made to celebrate out oalions bitlh-i'.ay in a proper manner. The great luminary of light also did his best to add warmth to the proceed ings. In the forenoon the children of the schools paraded in procession, headed by teachers and others. Their great number surprised us considerable, and we began to doubt whether children or coal was going lo be the greatest staple of production at Shamokin. About 2 o'clock. P. M. the citizens generally, preceeded by the Sha mokin Guards, a fine company commanded by Capt. David N. Lake, proceeded to the woods adjoining the town, where seals, &c, bad been prepared lor the occasion. The venerable J. P. Helfenstien was called to the chair, assisted by Wm. Fagely and K'.mber Cleaver, Eqs., as Vice Presidents, and Dr. J. J. John as Secretary. The chairman having briefly stated the object of the meeting, a prayer was offered by the Rev. Mr. Ehreheart, at the conclusion of which "America" was sung in excellent style by Dr. Alwaler, Mr. R. Helfenstien and s. ni. Kase, fcsq. tV e were perticu- larly gratified with the rich, deep, full toned base ol the Doctor. S. M. Kase, Esq., then'delivered a well written oration deliniating. the most important events ol , , . 1 the Revolution. He was followed by Mr. .,... . , ... K. Helfenstien in a neat, chaste and classi- , , . , . . cal speech, in reply to a toast lo the mem- i iv i . ,i I. . ory ol Washington.

It was admirably spoken and was received with rounds of applause.

We never publuh 4th oi July orations, ex cept the short dhes by the people, com monly called toasts, but we were anxious to make the Doctort an exception, and regret that we could not prevail upon him for a copy.

Improve; the world it progressive! improvement has become an individna! as well as the general duty. We are imitative and emulous in our natures. If for instance, The Public Buildings, now ceriaittly anything but crt ditable to the county, or ornamental to Ihe borough, were painted and otherwise improved, by the County Commissioners, (we desire to direct their attention especially to this necessity;) and Ihe Market Square, which certainly might be made beautiful and a place to be proud of, w as handsomely fenced in, instead of lying at common, and cared lor by the au thorities, what think you would be Ihe effect. Why, immediately they would be cared for and boasted of by the people. Those owning property in the vicinity would improve correspondingly; others more remote, for human nature is always emulous of good examples, would also im prove thus the whole commnnify would be affected ; the greatly to be desired work of improvement would be fairly begun.

Arrival or thr America. THE RCaSlANS DEFEATED 171 SILISTRIA. Great Victories of tht Turkt.. We have later foreign newt by the arrival nt Halifax of the steamer America, from Liv erpool. The Russians have been obliged lo raise the siege of Silisttia and retreat, before any of Ihe allied troops had reached Ihe teens of action. They are also said to have relinquished all their position, on the left bank of tho Danube, except Hiraovia, Mat schin and Issarktchi. All apprehensions of their adva c on Ihe Bilkai.s are at an end for Ihe prrs -t.t. The Turks are said to have crossed lo Ginrgevo, killed 400 Russians, and taken nine guns. The allied fleet wst con centrating at Sebastopol, which will proba. bly be soon attneked. The raising of the siege of Silistria was caused by a great victo ry of Ihe Turks who, on Ihe 15th of June, sailed out of the works ihere, attacked the Russian in their trenches, and, after a severe battle discomfitted and pursued them so that they fled across the Danube. The Turks destroyed all tho Rnsainn siege works. Prince GortschakofTand Generals Ludcrs and Schilders were wounded in this battle. Another action is said lo have been fonght, in which a 'Russian division defeated two Turkish brigades. Prinre Pukiewich is said to have received orders from S. Peters burg to retire beyond thn Pruth. A oonspi. racy to assassinate Louis Napoleon has been detected iu France, and ISO persons arrested In S pain, Generals Orlando and Messina have been arrested fur harboiing General O'Donnel. In Asia, the Russiuns have been surprised and beaten by the Circassians at Kariul pnss. Disastrous Fire io Philadelphia. , The National Theatre and Chinese Museum destroyed. About hairpasl nine o'clock on Wednesday evening commenced one of Ihe most disas trous fires il has lately been our lot to record. Owing to some carelessness in the handling of matches behind the scenes of ihe Nation. al Theatre, at the comer of Ninth and Ches nut street, fire was communicated lo the scenes, and the flumes spread with a rapidity that defied all lha efforts of the fireman. A lurid glare was cuM over the. sky, and the alarm spread ihrot'ghnui the city. The National Theatre was entirely de. stroyed. Tho audience escaped, we believe, without a single exception. The Chinese Muncrtm biuKlinjj, iu the rear of the Theatre, one of the most massive and extensivo structures in the country, was entirely destroyed. The Girard Hons3 caught fire al the cor nice, which was of wood, but was eventually saved wi'.h much difficulty. From Ihe Museum and Theatie the flames spread eastward, to the adjoining houses on Chestnut and Sansom streets. The' buildings occupied by James S. Earle'a picture gallery, and Evans & Co.'s laige dry goods store, were soon utterly destroyed Many of the valuable pictures in Mr. Kaile't gallery were burned, as also a large amount of picture frames, looking glasses, and other stock. The fire extended to the southeast, as Tar as Eighth and Sansom streets, where the assiduous and unremitting exertions of the firemen checked the progress of ihe flames, The Girard House was saved the npper stories only being damaged and much of the furniture spoiled by the deluge of water.
