Wonder if there arc not other Breckinridge papers in Virginia and elsewhere that would like to come over on the "bonus" prmdpki!?

Well, yes, think wc do. There is one not a thousand miles from here, a very clever gentle man, who has said that he should not consider the election of Lincoln just cause for dissolving the Union, and who has intimated, we learn, that lie would hold on to his office rather than see the federal government broken up. We know that the gentleman alluded to would de plore the election of Lincoln as much as any one, and that his attachment to his section is as sincere and decided as that of those who are trying to disrupt the Union ; and we lake oc casion to say that, ifhe or others who are now in office should be abused and villified by those who declare that it whould be dishonor able to hold office under Lincoln, they shall have whatever defense we are able to make. We differ with the supporters of Breckinridge in this contest and shall do all in our power to defeat Lincoln, but as we are determined to cling to this Union as long as the people of North Carolina can get their rights under the Constitution, we shall not consider it dishonor able in any man to hold office under any admin istration under which the people of the State consent to live; and whenever such are de nouced for thus holding office we shall denounce those who denounce them. If the Standard will wait till after the elec tion, and Lincoln should unfortunately be elect -cd, we will show it Breclcinridge democrats' a over the State who will be willing to hold office under him. But fiwv will resign whose places are worth three hundred dollars or upwards. Murder ofn While Woman by a Slave In Pitt. There has just occurred a most brutal mur der in Pitt county, the particulars of which ap pear in the following from the Washington Dispatch : Murder of Miss Adams. This tragical and most brutal murder has excited so much inter est in this entire section, that we very willingly give place to the following full statement from an intelligent eye-witness on -the spot, who has kindly furnished it to us, in place of our own statements derived from rumor : Pitt Co., N. C, Sept. 22, 1860. Messrs. Editors: Onr community was thrown ino a state of unusual excitement on last Thursday morning, by the announcement that Miss Lucretia Adams, a maiden lady, about 35 years ot age, had been Murdered at the' house of Bryan Grimes. Esq., Cin the lower part ol Pitt Co.) where she resided Mr. Grimes is a widower with two small children, and last winter he em ployed this lady to reside at his house and take care of his children, This summer when Mr. G ri ai es carried his children off up the country, as it is his custom to do, and designing to visit Eu rope himself, having some workmen employed, he engaged this lady to remain during his ab sence, to attend to feeding his workmen and to take care of his house. Mr. Grimes has an over seer also on his farm, but he sleeps in another house prepared for that purpose, about 80 yards from the main building. The workmen employed had finished their job and left, and at tbo time the only white person on the premises, were the murdered lady and the overseer. The evidence disclosed showed, that the lady reti ed to bed as usual about past 9 o'clock on Wednesday night, in good health. A small servant girl, apparently bout 7 years of age, slept in the room with the Tiidy. It was her invariable custom to lock up the doors of the houso before retiring. On Tharsday morning, the cook woman, finding that ilise Adams was sleeping, as she thought, later Uhan usual, sent to have her waked up. The little -girl. in the room answered that she could not wake Jier.;-afcd hoisted a window and jumped out, ap parently very much frightened . The old woman Lthen. became alarmed and called to tha nvrspcr wfco wasear by and when he came up, she in- uuhwiu mm ,iuai, ij.iss Aaains could not bo waka jap. They-fchen-fenod that the front door of f.h e house wa opes, went i.n and into her befboin, and found her covered np lying dea on the bed ; -And upon aklrtx.iminatioDt. he saw that she 4iad beeu aaurdered. Thc-i'ieighbors were im anediately seBUcr, a7-'also Dr. King Mr. G.'s family Physician, upon a thorough examina tion, it wag fonnd that the1 lady had been murder ed in a most diabolieai ma.nner. Iler throat was bruised and lacerated, showing that it had been grasped with a strong hand, and pressed so a3 to ieave the priats of the fingers distinctly on one side and the thumb wi the oi her, and on her right hand and arm there were i wo severe bites, showing the distinct impressions of the teeth Tha deceased was evidently -chokod and stran gled, and in endeavoring to remove the hand of the murderer from her mouth and throat, she ev idently received those bites. The little negro girl that was sleeping in the room witu the de ceased, says that she heard the deeeased say du ring the night, that soeseone was in the roon. that he then beard some one geton the bed, and heard Jdiss A. hollow once and attempt to hollow aain, but she could not; says she was alarmed aad cov ered up her head. The little girl has sinee givf n contradictory statements of what she knew; &ml the is too young to be made a witness. Coroner James, attended by a jury, yesterday heid an mquest over the dead body, and the jury, fter examining to the case, rendered a verdiJt 1. f if8 "urdeie3 r a negro man, slave, named Ilenrjr, the property .of M?.

Terrll;e Fire and Fall of Buildings in New Orleans. or CO Human Beings Crushed $150,000 OF PROPERTY DESTROYED. The True Delta, contains an account of a terri ble catastrophe which occurred in New Oilens on Sunday evening! A fire broke out about half past seven, at the liquor store of Kansleindieck & Co., 101 and, 103 Tchoupitoulas street, between LaFayette and Gi rod. In as hort time a terrible explosion occur ed, which caused the walls to fall,-crushing sev eral adjoining buildings, and, burying 50 or 00 persons in the ruins, from among the crowd who had gathered on the street to assist in removing goods and suppressing the fire. Of these many were firemen, and up to the time, the Delta wrent to press at 12 o'clock, 13 persons had been taken out of the ruins, all dead or frightfully in jured. The following are the names of the dead, whose bodies are recovered : Alfred Cofme, Fordinand Guerrenger, Edward Iloyne, Alfred Delanne, T. G. Bartelsen. Among those missing, are Mr. Hernandez of the cigar store opposite the' St. Charles. The Delta says that the names of those more or less injured would almost fill a column. They.forbear to mention the names of many who are missing, lest they give unfounded alarm to absent friends, but it was believed that several more were buried be neath the walls. The scene was a most appalling one and the Delta alludes - to the heroic efforts of many per sons in behalf of be sufferers. The loss of property is estimated at $15.0,000 of which about half is recovered by insurance. i I, - j .

" v INTERESTING FKOlt JAPAN. We . make the following extracts, .toys the Washington States, of a letter dated Yokabama, Japan, July 18th, and which we find in the Alia-Califomian : . ; .". - The Japanese steamer Candinmarrah, which left this port last February, under charge of Cap tain brooke, of the Fenniaiore Cooper, conveying the intelligence of the departure of the '.Japanese Ambassadors to America, arrived here from Hon olulu, after a passage of eighteen days. -From the Americans who came in her.. we learned that the Japanese conducted themselves admirably on board, taking the position of the vessel daily by the sun, aud brought her in seamanlike manner, into this bay without an accident- The appearance of the Japanese steamer from America, with news from the Ambassadors, crea ted a great excitement both amongst the Ameri cans and Japanese. The foreigners were anxious to bear how the Japanese had been received in America, and the Japanese were fearf ul lest the Ambassadors would not survive the great trip across the pond. However, all doubts were dis pelled when the great mail was distributed, bring ing New York almost within hailing distance with this out-of-the-way corner of the world. For the excellent manner in which you treated the visi tors we are indebted for the consideration with which we have been received at the hands of the Japaneses since their return to this country. The reports of the gorgeousness displayed in your city, especially your great dinners have ta ken the people by surprise and wonderment. Three dollars for a dinner was to them a marvel lous and fabulous sum to pay, and they assert it was impossible to devour the value at one meal. Here a dinner iu their best style costs an itsabu. There were many striking and wonderful sights which they saw, and it was not long before he vrhole town was made aware of the most celebra ted voyage the Japanese had ever under taken, together with all the incidents con nected therewith. . All excitement, however, sub sided, and the Japanese expressed a universal de sire to see the return of their officers, and to re ceive from them a report in full, with properly authenticated accounts, to be published and spread over the empire, showing to the people how foreign great nations looked upon Japanese officials The returning Japanese were much surprised to find men of-war stationed iu the harbor, osten sibly to protect foreigners from the attack of Prince Meto'the great; but lately he has gained favor with the government, and many privileges have been acceded to him So now all remains quiet ; foreign guards patroling the streets is deemed unnecessary, and fears have been allay ed by hearing no rumors of conflicts with the se veral princes of the empire. The officials conce ded the advisability of concentrating all opposing factious and satisfying their demands, in order to strengthen the power of the government and ap pear more formidable in the eyes of the foreign ers. The government is one of the old feudel, possessing great pride; and resting iu the belief that foreign products are unworthy of considera tion. All foreign importations are obnoxious to gov ernment officials, and the prncipal goods brought by merchants, especially the liner articles, are forbidden to be worn, by any class save the ofti cials ; when worn, which is vefy seldom, they re verse the order of things, by making the lining of the clothing the fancy side instead ;f being on the outside, as with us Importations into Na gasaki last year 1 fonnd to have worked there through the empire to Jeddo, and streets there presented an aspect not dissimilar to our own, as American woolens and cottons were fancifully displayed for sale from stores of the principle mer chants. At this day the official rulo is all powerful, and all classes are bound to obey any and all orders of government, even to the manner of dress to be worn ; but the day is not far distant when the mercantile class of Japan a class regarded with such contempt and derision by the offi cials will rise up in full conciousncss of power and assert a right wheh has for centuries been denied them. So great is the fear of the govern ment of the merchants, that every precaution is tiken ; spies in myriads flock around them, enormous taxes are extorted, and every means employed to reduce their income, in order that they may have no wealth, the most powerful lever to maintain their stand. GEN. JACKSON'S .NOBLE WIFE. Many of our public men have been blessed with wives and mothers, who were ornaments of thier sex, and by their quiet and ennobling influ ence contributed iargely to the subsequent great nes of their children and husbands. Mr. Barton teils the following story of Gen. Jackson's wife : When Gen. Jaeksou was a candidate for tho Presidency in 1828, not only did the party opposed to him abuse him for his public acts, which, if un constitutional or violent, were a legitimate sub ject of reprobation, but they defamed the char acter of his wife. On one occasion, a newspaper published in Nashville was laid upon the Gener al's table He glanced over it, and his eyes fell upon an article in which the character of Mrs. Jackson was violently assaailed. So soon as he had read it he sent for his trusty servant Dun woodie. "Saddle my horse." said he to him in a whisper, 'and put -my holsters on him." Mrs. Jackson watched him, and though she heard aot a word sne tnougnt she saw nnsciiiet in Ms eyes. I lie I General went out after a few moments, when she' took up tho paper and understood everything. She ran out to the south g;te of the yard of.ythe Hermitage, by which the General had to.-fiass. She had not been there but a few second? before the General rode up with the countenance of a madman. She placed harsclf before, his horse, and cried out : "O, General, don't go to Nashviile! Let the poor editor live. Let the poor editor live." "Let me alone," he replied; "how came you to know what I am going ibr?". She answered, "I saw ij,-' all in his paper after you went out; put upyoyf horse and go back.'' He replied furiously'but I will go get out of my way!" Instead of doin.-'this she grasped his bridle with both hands. He cried to ltler. "I say let go my horse; I'll have his hears' a blood the viilinn that reviles my wife shall not live." She grasped the reigns but the tighter, and be gan to expostulate with him, saying that she was the one who ought to be angry, but that she had forgave her persecuters from the bottom of her heart, and prayed for them that he should for give if he had hopes to be forgiven. At last, by her reasoning, her entreaties and her tears, she so worked upon her hushand that he seemed mollifi ed to a certain extent She wound up by saying, "No. General, you shall not take the life of even my reviler you dare not do it, for it is writ ten, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord!' The iron-nerved hero gave way before the ear nest pleading of his beloved wife and he re plied. 'T yield to you; but had it not been for you. and the words of the Almighty, the wretch should not have lived an hour! ' North Carolina Eastern Central Fair.

Where Peace' .snowy lilly nnd Love's vernal rose Are wreathing a chaplet with amaranths fair, And Hope's brilliant rainbow is bending in uir. In fountains of crystal Truth's bright waters glide, O'er glittering diamonds that rise in the tide, More fair then the pearls that the Naiad has spread On altars of coral ia ocean's deep bed. Come ll.-it to the music that's heard in the bower More sweet than the Gondolier's song at night hour; The minstrels are graces that reign in the breast, The numbers Ihey warble are notes of the blest. No feeds of wild Discord e'er spring in the bower, Nor Griff's latent worm nips the sweet bud or fiow'r ; The vulture of Falsehood afar from it flies, And Hate enters not with its sinister eyes. The basilisk b' ood o" green Jealousy dire, Ne'er enter the bower with their venom and fire; Pale Knvy intrudes not the grove of delight, But Innocence reigns in her mantle of might. O, come to the bower that in emerald glows, The. gale of Affection unceasingly blows ; And the Spirits of Peace have erected a tower, And Friendship ceiesti'al is Queen of the bower. - German, N. Y.. Sept.l. The Emphess Fa ;e-ia at a AYatekino Place. Tt is stated that daring the past sum mer the Empress of France was at the Eaux lionnes, a watering-place at the foot oi the Pyrenees, and might be seen romping up and down the mountains, trudging at times as far as the snow that lies- all summer a?ong their sides, picking her way on foot by the springs, not at all afraid of losing her dignity, but pret ty sure of finding health and spirits ; careless how she muddied her feet, byl 3-et with her dress pinned up in nonchalant stj lc, so that it need not be unnecessarily'' soiled. It must have been an infinite relief to her to escape from etiquettes for a whOe, and scamper over the-hills like n sensibl. girl once more. Her tonr was infinitely more agreeable than the tedious pageants and parades to which the poor Prince of Wales has, during the summer, been made a victim. KT J.5i:v. EISIIOP ATKINSON. This eminent Divine, preached in the Metho dist Chnyih in this place, on thursday evening last, to a large and appreciative audience. TI;y discourse was characterized by profound thwght and heart felt piety, which seemed to tfilich every bosom present in response to the feelings of the speaker. The sermons of Bishop Atkinson arc always interesting, but this one was unusual so. Even the frivolous, andverv young persons, lent their undivided attention as is rare ly their wont to do, and appeared to regret when the words of wisdom and piety were brought to a close, at rather a late hour. One person received the rite of confirmation. The friends of the Bish op will be pleased to learn that he was in good h e al th . Iredell Express. New Feat ix Engineering. A traveler over the railroad between Houston and Eagle Lake, gives the following singular feat of Texas engi neering : On the railroad between Ipusfon and Eagle Lake, in Texas, a feat is performed which, I pre sume, is entirely unprecedent in engineering. At the crossing of the Brazos river, the road is finished on each side to the bank, and a temporary track laid down each bank and across a temporary bridge which is some oO to 40 feet below the level of the permanent road. The design was to cross this bridge until the permanent one was complet ed, by letting the locomotive and cars slowly down the bank with ropes, and then hauling them up on the other side. But at one time the locomotive, in decending, broke loose, and sweep ing through the hollow by its momentum ascend ed the opposite bank in safety. Since that time passenger trains are run through the hollow in this manner sweeping gracefully downward and rising on the opposite side, like the swoop of a hawk on its prey 1 have been something of atrav eller.but this was the first time that I ever followed a locomotive down a steep bank of a river ! It is said that tho civil engineers object to this mode of proceeding, on account of the tremen dous strain on the road-bed in that part which changes the line of motion from the descending to the horizontal direction. AN IMPORTANT COMMERCIAL QUES TION. A question which will affect, to a serious ex tent, the interest of commerce, recently was brought before the United States Circuit Court iu New York city. An a-t of Congress provides that all home manufactured articles which are returned again in their original state, shall be free from duty. Under this act, millions of barrels and hogsheads have been exported to return again, filled with sugar and molasses. The government, in the suit in question, claim to recover duties upon a large quantity of barrels sent to Cuba and returned with sugar. The government claim that these barrels are not returned in their original state, and become part and parcel of the package of raolases or sugar; or whatever the contents may be. The question being one of great inteiest, both to the government and commercial commu nity, the federal judges here have certified to a divisionof opinion, which thus brings the mat ter to the Supreme Court of the United States for adjudication. It is estimated that the result will affect the revenue to the extent of between three and four millions of dollars annually. - Another Tradgedy in New York. On Mon day, in New York, a man named nenry AY. Pierrepont made an attack upon a widow named Hannah Jones, keeper of a small boarding-house, to whom he had been recently pay ing his addresses, but had been rejected, and after cutting her badly and driving her across the siicet into the house of a neighbor, drew a horse pistol and shot her, causing injuries that must prove fatal. Mrs. Jories, in endeavoring to escape from the ruffian, had entered a second-story' room and placed herself against the door. . Pierrepont fired through the door, the ball entering the unfortunate woman's eye, and lodging against the brain.

Any one of a particle" of in telligence can see that Yancey is stumping . for Lincoln and not for Breckinridge.. The Breck inridgers aredetermined there shall be no fu sion in New York against Lincoln. The fol lowing article is from the iVt Y. 'Express: GREEN AGAINST FUSION. "AYho is Green f". The world ' is closely connected . with the important question, but the history of " Green " is yet to . be written his life, his history, his earlj infancy, his ma ture age, his great and""wonderous doings. The history of Green, as yet, is as much in ob scurity as was the history of Abraham Lincoln ten days after his nomination, but as Lincoln has become a great and mighty man, so, doubt less, Green may be, when we get at his histo- and discover wherein his greatness consists. The Evening Post, strange to say, seems to be better informed about " Green " than any otlier journal in our country. " Green," said the editor yesterday, "telegraplid to Yancey." Green knows Yancey, and Yancey knows Green. The great Disunionist of the South, who smashed up Democrac3r at Charleston and at Baltimore, is acquainted with the to-be great Green, who is to sma up Democracy in New York. "The State Commit e '-''(that is Green J says the Evening Post, ' of the National Democrats are to issue another address to the people of the State, in which the Cooper Institute Fusion ticket will be repudiated. "The Committee (that is Green ), say that they know no such Breckinridge democrats as Wil liam A. Koble, AVilliam B. Ducan and Abraham B. Conger and see no good reason for substitu ting their names in place of those of men known and tried. A consultation was ha'd with them by Mr. Henry's committee." It is not anticipated that Messrs. nenry S. Rau dall, John II. Brewer, Jacob A. WTestervelt, jPr Stephen P. Ruesell will accept the nomination tendered to them by the Cooper institute Gom mittee : and if any of them should do so, if will be considered as a decliuation of the regVar na tional democratic nomination, and Mrf Green will immediately convoke his committee a.-id supply their places." Great, great is "Green!" B-.t continues the Post : "Preparations have been made or the canvass of the State. Mr. Yancey, of A'-ibama, and Mr. Brady will proceed in company in a few days, and visit the prominent cities and villages, to address the National democracy. Whatever may be the event of the Cooper Institute movement, there will be no concession made by the National democrats. So we are credibly advised." Brady is no fool, yf Yancey is, but if both should attempt to yfuinp the State upon such issues as they woid have to make, they could not cany a corporal's guard in any county in the State. Tht'e are many Breckinridge men, it is true, but tKey are generally very sensible, and very few of them are Lincolnitcs or fools. The Evei.mg Post is doubtless well informed when it siAles that "Green will run a ticket." Nobody . -ver doubted that. No fact was ever more l'ied. "Green" was created to run a tickei,' He is a ticket himself. Ticket run nings his trade. Evcrv man has a irenius. ! aj1? the genius of Green is, running a sham I '-kef for Breckinridge. Money will be want ' od of course. "A gridiron" in New York will I furnish the wajrs and means, and Green can i have "a gridiron." Here the Post has the first news, and in this matter, doubtless, the Post is well informed. It is one of the most amusing things in poli tics to see mere men or mere cracked party machines, butting against the resisting, rou ing, restless tide of public opinion, which as now, demands, and will have but one ticket. urecn can uu no more acamst mat opinion than a niusjuito can do by buzzing Niagara Falls. against GARIBALDI AND IlfS COMPANIONS. A correspondent of the London Times, who rcccntl- made a trip to llessina with Garibal di, thus describes the liberator and his chief companions : Trecchi, a major in the Sardinian ami-, who resigned his place as an orderly ofiiccr near the King's person, thinks, and with good reason, that the King himself would be the happiest of mortals were it in his power to don a red flannel shirt and join Garibaldi, the love of ad venture being far stronger in A'ictor Emanuel's heart than that ambition which some of tho clerical organs so freely impute to him. There was Fruscianti, a Roman veteran, without whom Garibaldi never moves, with two or three more gray -headed men who have been with him throughout most of his adventures in the New as well as the Old AYorld, and as map.' younger men accustomed to do his bidding, whether the task imposed upon them may seem a practicable or an actually impossible one. Besides the Italians and the Hungarians, wc had also some of Garibaldi's English cham pions Major, now Colonel Lcveson, a j'ouug man only :J0 years old, and of a small stature, but gifted with almost herculean strength and heaven -storming courage a man with whose name fewr persons conversant with the Crimean and Indian wars can tx) unacquainted, lie comes to light with Garibaldi by land and sea, and is, besides the owner of a yacht, and means to embark a dozen English sailors in it and about 0U volunteer dare-devils, of whom the world will hear some news by and by. AVe had Capt. 1). Howling, R. A., who is to com mand a battery of AYhitworth guns, and Air. Edward F. Jarvis, R. N., a j'oung sailor who resigned the command of his vessel in England to place his skill and valor at Garibaldi's ser vice. The master of the Amazon, Capt. R. L. AVeeks, is no less Garibaldi-niad. I id most fancy I have made out a few o the peculiar charms by which Garibaldi seems to exercise so great an ascendency on all who ap proach them. AYe were yesterday en fa inille, and although Capt. AYeeks had placed his pri vate cabin at the exclusive disposal of his il lustrious guest, yet Garibaldi came forth among us, and made himself for a day perfectly hap py, and even heartily merry with his friends. The General moved among the various groups upon deck, with a kind and an apt word for each of them, evincing that readiness of recog nition, that perfect accuracy of recollection, that memory of men and things and circum stances, however trifling, which are ranked among the innate privileges of roj'alty. He had on his usual dictatorial suit, consisting of the unfailing flannel shirt, with a silk bandana ker chief thrown loosely and " widely round the neck, by way of a scarf, light grey trowsers, and the modern wide-awake hat with the turn up brim. The prodigious breadth of the Gene ral's shoulders, his colossal chest, and the na tural dignity and lion like majesty of his coun tenance, again and again incline a beholder to overrate his real stature, which is certainly not above the middle size. You must go near him, and measure him by the standard of com mon men, before you recover from tho error in to which awe for that commanding figure leads you. There arose loud peals of laugher, in which it did a man's heart good to see Garibaldi take a share Garibaldi, the man on whose should ers weigh at this moment the destinies of Italy. Accustomed as they must be to the exhibition of such unaffected cordiality Garibaldi's com panions were as fully charmed to see their chief tain in such good humor as a comparative stranger might be. - The love and devotion . of all men who ever draw near Garibaldi are some thing that passes all understanding. He loves all, and is loved by all ; yet there is none with whom his supreme authority is ever shared, none who is ever intimately taken into his councils. It is only his heart that is" open to all. His mind is exclusively his own, and his will admits no doubt or dispute. - AYavxe Cocstv. The Superior Court for AYayne, Fall Term, will commence" to-day.- J. K. MeRae has an appointment-to speak there, to-morrow. Three song3, two of them written by Acton Bell and one of them; by Ellis Bell, the siBters of Charlotte Bronte, have been set to music in England, and are- highly praised by the Lon iloa artists. THE EFFECT OF THE ELECTION OF LIN- COLN. ' ;. The Providence Post addressses the following temperate and sensible remarks to the AVashing ton Constitution. . We publish them for the bene fit of our readers, but at the same time we take occasion to inform the Post that they will have no other effect upon the Lincoln-Buchanan organ jj than to increase its zeal for the success of Aboliv tionism and Black Republicanism : . No supporter of John C. Breckinridge neecjo doubt for a moment as to the position of the Jtost on the questions which are here involved. We have again and again said of the nulllficatiorriaws of some of the Northern States that it -.-as the duty of the federal government to employ all its force to trample them in the dust When inter ference with the enforcement of the fugitive slave law has been attempted, we have counseled the severest penalties against those who have made such attempts. AA7e have said a thousaud times that neither fanatical men nor fanatical States should be allowed to nulify or trample upon the Constitution and laws of the country. AYe repeat all we have said on this pointy' and we add that we would apply the same treatment to Southern as to Northern fanaticism. ;-if rebellion, or nulli fication, or resistance to th enforcement of con stitutional laws is attemp'.'jd anywhere, North or South let it be crushed a: once ! And we remind the Constitution newspaper once more that the wc.rk in which it is now enga ged is calculated to hasten all the evils which we have predicted rs the result of electing Abra ham Lincoln to thrs" Presidency. A vote for Breck inridge is a vote for Lincoln. Lincoln, without Breckinridge im'tha field, could stand no possible change of election. Heknewit.and his friends knew it. " Jo'n C. Breckinridge knows it, and u: i. Ti i c k ma auppuntya auo iu. j. 1IO nope 01 iuc ciicuij rests upon 'lie running of Breckinridge tickpts in the Northern States. If the Constitution succeeds in anythng. it will succeed in the election of Abe Lincohyl Then will commence the wrrk of sub jugation. The first step will be interven'ion with.-slavery in the Territories a work which theJonstitution is now courting. But it will be Nf.-lthern, and not Southern intervention. Other pleasures will follow, until the South, finding the ad too heavy, will involve the country in all the horrors of a civil war. And on whose head will then fall the curses of all peace loving men ? AVe answer, upon the heads of the men whose folly and madness are now seen in the support of John C Breckinridge against the regular nominee of the Democratic party. And what is it but folly and madness, even if we admit the possibility of Breckinridge s elec tion ? His election would be nothing more nor less than a challenge to the North to commence the irrepressible conflict. AVhen the South de cides for intervention mark our prediction ! it will get it. When it discards the Democratic platform and the Democratic nominee, and deter mines upon fighting out the slavery question in Congress, Northern Democrats will not any long er have it in their power to protect it from its own madness. If intervention is insisted upon, we cannot save the South from the consequences of the conflict. Numbers will prevail in Congress, and the South will have to yield or resort to rebel lion. With non-interVention for the nationalpol icy it is safe. With intervention, it is sure to be driven to the wall. PARTICULARS OF THE LATE HORRIBLE RAILWAY COLLISION IN ENGLAND ELEVEN PERSONS KILLED AND ONE HUNDRED WOUNDED. The particulars of the late fearful collision on the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railroad, have been received. On Monday, the 3rd instant, a large number of excursionists had loft Colnc, Barnbery, Acrington and other towns, for Man chester. They returned at night by three trains, the first of which reached its destina tion safelr. AVhile the second, consisting of eighteen cars, was starting from Ilehnshore Station, where there is a long and steep grade, the coupling chains broke, back of the third carriage, leaving fifteen behind. The latter be gan to move slowly backward, but with gradu all' accelerating force for nearly four hundred yards, when they came into collision with the third train with a fearful crash. Two of the carriages were broken to atoms, and seven oth ers much shattered. The engineer of the third train did his best to stop the locomotive ; and then lay down on the bed. of the engine. Strange to s:;y he escaped without injury. Bui the scene outside was friuhtful. Ua rcinovuvr the wreck it was asecrannef 1 that eleeii persons had 1-een killed, while anout n iiaa siiiiercu more or less severe m- uines. ine iron ot which the hro'a-n links j were made is said to have been of had quality ; but independent of this there appears to have I liiM-n ii.mc'1) miir,:!n'l"-il:lor.t. ( )f the lift pi-vi iSe- tached carriages, only two wore supplied with brakes, and but one guard was in charge of them. There was another in the forward part of the train, but he never appears to have made an attempt to get on the receding cars, nor was there a passenger ready to apply the second brake. When the collision occurred, th'j fifteen carriages were moving not much faster than a walking pace, so that some min utes must have elapsed in making the distance stated. The locomotive, meantime, switched oil' to the other track and proceeded back to give notice to the other train, but too late to avoid tho fearful result. Had the second brake only been applied within a reasonable lime, it is probable the catastrophe would not have oc curred. A curve prevented the engineer of the third train from seeing the- other in time to avoid the collision. JENKINS AND THE PRINCE. Jenkins sticks close by the Prince of Wales, and tells the public, with the most faithful min uteness, of all his doings. Among other things, we are glad to learn that tho Prince's dancing Jenkins would say " salta tory" education is still improving. He shook his' fingeis at those who missed the figures," "directed the awkward," and " talked to all the set," like a royal dancing master that he must be. On leaving Canada the members of his suite are " affected to tears, so much had they learned to love him." The Prince becomes a baron, and enters the United States amid the prolonged screams of the American Eagle. The AATestern people must love a lord as deeply as did Tommy Moore. The baronial carriage is followed through the streets of Detroit by men, boys and ladies. Here we have Jenkins again. He tells us that the Prince actually looked at the house of Mr. Cass, and was surprised at its plainness that he was afraid of fast trains that his fare is five cents a mile that he asked about a "pretty Amer ican lady of Natchez, Miss B." that he looks " snsceptiblo," (do you hear that ladies ?) and that he has already yielded to several " twinges in the region of his midriff," Had any one but Jenkins written this we would protest against it as vulgar; but under the circumstances, such an idea is out of the question. Furthermore, we are told that on the Baron's ar rival at New York there is to be a grand, exlcu sive, superfine, arristocratic ball, under a commit tee of arrangements, whose members, we are ostentatiously told, are worth $-00,i 100,000. This will be, no doubt, a magnificent affair a second edition of the Japanese arrangement, about which the New Yorkers are still talking. In the mean time all the snobs of New York are dying of ex pectancy, and writing small paragraphs to the newspapers as to whether the ladies shall speak in monosyllables, (imagine an American lady talking monosyllables! or only reply when spoken to. This very important matter, we grieve to say, is still undecided. In the meantime, the Prince is travelling through the the West, and exhibiting himself on the balcony of a Chicago, hotel, where C and here is Jenkins once more) "he bowed and marched up and down like a dwarf at a country fair." From the Staunton Vindicator. Mr, Yost Dear Sir : I send you the following, which I clip from the Lynchburg, Republican of of the 12th inst. AVho was the " Arirginia dele gate who remained in the Douglas Convention at Baltimore," on whose authority Mr. AVise " de clared that Wm. L. lar.cey was tendered the nomination fer the Vice-Presidency on the Doug las ticket?" Did you hear any such proposition in the Convention or out of it ? I heard nothing of the sort. On the contrary, I heard a rumor on the street that Mr. Yancey was very willing to go into the support of Mr. Douglas, provided he Yan cey was placed with hinivOn the ticket for the A'ice-Presidency. I paid but little attention to the rumor, but simply replied that I would not vote for any ticket with Yancey's name on it. 1 do not think I spoke of it more than once or twice, for I did not think such rumors worthy of notice. But. so far as I heard anything of the sort. it was tnat Mr. Yancey was willing to support Douglas if he could get the Vice-Presidency. And that was a mere rumor; 'so that if there was anything of the sort, the boot is on the other leg. As to the latter part of the paragraph, it is silly. For everybody, knew the Vice-President was to ccme from jhe South, and it is true that we were hunting' for the proper man to preside over the Senate for the next four years. - A DELEGATE.

Across the creek is a somewhat similar pile of rock, quite as high, but not so extensive, apparently separa ted by some convulsion of nature from its twin mass across the creek. The name, "Pafut Rock," is applied to the point at the abrupt turn of the road, and is derived from what is said to have been once far more than now, an appearance of a painted surface. At present it requires a lively imagination to realize any special appropriateness of the name. disturbancesTt a polit ix5al"meet 1xg steamboat sunk murders. St. Lor is, Sept. 0.

Our citizens are aware that Mr. Breckinridge cannot, or will not, answer questions: they arc equally aware that the Constitution, tho Presi dent's organ, is governed entirely by the wishes of Air. Breckinridge, but what vj'SA they think of Mr. Yancy's refusal to respond to a-very pioper interrogatory last night? A gentleman asked Mr. Yancey "what would the South do in case Lincoln were elected " Mr. Yancey did not answer the question, but left it to be answered by the gentleman himself, after painting the pro bable evils to be inflicted on the South by Abo litionists and Black Republicans. Mr. Yancey should have made a response. Wre cannot imagine why he did not do 80, unless his mouth has been sealed on the subject of disunion by the entrea ties of Mr. Breckinridge. We add the following communication, for tho information of our readers: lion- V.i. L.

I handed a letter, addressed in pencil to Mr. Yancey, to Mr. Hoover, at his house last even ing, containing the above inquiry, and Mr Hoo ver said to me that he would deliver it to Mr. Yancey before he commenced his speech.

We are told that General AYalker has but just attained his 3Gtli year. He wss born in Nash ville, Tennessee, in May, and was thorough ly educated under the most favorable auspices for whatever liberal profession he might select in af ter life, first by a collegiate course, at the Univer sity of Nashville, where he acquitted himself with the highest honors of his class, and afterwards in the Medical Schools of Philadelphia and Paris; enjoying, also, while in Europe, the advantages of a tour through German and Italy, where his opportunities for Belles-lettres scholarship were nol only liberal, but keenly enjoyed and appre ciated by a mind then, at least, quiet and studi. ous io a degree that utterly forbid the idea of an ad venturous or restless career in later life. His dist.-iste. however, to the Medical profession, which he declined practically to enter upon, turned him to the law, and the associations of the law, not unnaturally to politics, in which he first engaged in New Orleans, and subsequently, in 18oU 51, in California, from which point he entered upon his hazardous career. Col. lludlcr. Very little seems to be known of Col Rudler. ' lie was a native of Alabama and served with credit in the Mexican War, as an offi cer of the Louisiana Regiment. In J?4'J he went to California and was onetime Deputy-Marshall' of the City of Stocton.

The New York correspon dent of the Mobile Register writes on the llith : 'the cook of the great ox at the Douglas festi val was Ferdinand Pahno, an Italian cook, and one of the celebrities of New York. Poor fellow, he is nearly used up. Once he was worth $200, 0U0. He then started the Italian opera, and it ruined him. Palmo was picked up in a Mediter ranean port by Com. Chauncey in 18215. He made him his cook. Palmo came to the United States with the captain, and settled in Richmond, V where he married and started a cook-shop. lie finally awme to New York, and became a great as well as rich man. He was once proprietor of tho celebrated Cafe des Millie Collons, in Broadway. He coined gold in that mint. AVhen Louis Na polean was in New York, about twenty-five years ago, Palmo was his cook, and a great favorite w ith the future Emperor. Poor old Palmo ! He is a dried up specimen of humanity, and the day of the ox-roasting he was tied with a piece of whipcord to keep from being blown into the East river by the wind. He gets $12 a week now as cook in a small saloon in Broadway, and I dare say is as happy as in days of sunshine and pros perity. He is patiiofic. and desires to see his. Italy become a great power. Palmo will never die. AVhen he ceases ts exist it will bo when his blood dries up. ANOTHER LAKE DISASTER. Chicago, Sept 26. There is every reason to. believe that on the night of the disaster of the Lady Elgin, another vessel was lost with all on board. The schooner St. Marry left here on that day bound for Cedar River, and has not been heard of since. She had on board some lady passengers and five men, besides rnntnln Honnett. mate and cook. Since she left another vessel has been to Cedar River, but heard nothing of the missing schooner. FKU-T.
