dwelling adjoining thai of Mr. Lansdale,
destroyed, was occupied by Mr. Kowc,

Fre>iif. r. ? Kain commenced falling on
Monday and continued u ith slight inter
mission up to Wednesday noon, causing
the Potomac to swell higher than it has
been for eight years. The freshet exten
ded along the line of the B. & O. Rail
road from Grafton to points east of Har
per's Ferry. The C. & O. Canal was
ovei flown at several points between Cum
berland and Harper's Ft-rr). It is thought
fiat Dams No. 4 and 5 are materially in
jured as five or six cribs and timber were
seen floating by at this point.
At Harpei's Ferry, on Wednesday, the
tank* of the Canal were entirely submer
ged, and the lower end of the town over
flown. Many persons * ere compelled to
remove their stores, shops, &c.,from the
submerged and threatened buildings to
others higher situated. The Armory
buildings being protected by the heavv
-walls surrounding thein, were not at all
selected by the flood.
It is presumed that much loss and
damage have been sustained* by persons
residing along the line of the Potomac.

Reminiscences of Hie Marriage uf lieu
rj Clay.
The delivery of ihe statue of Henry
Clay, in New Orleans, and its proposed
Inauguration in April, is exciting a proper
degree ?>f interest both in and outride of
thai city. Kentucky is to be formally
repies* nted at the inaugural ceremonies.
A representative has already been desig
nated in the person of Mark Hardin, Esq ,
Who was selecti d lacl week, by a public
meeting held at Shelby ville. How sin
gularly appropriate this appointment is
will appear by the following paragraph
from an exchange :
, "An interesting incident occurred a few
days ago at Louiwiile, Kentucky. It
was the meeting of the only two persons
now living who were present at the mar
| riage of Henry Clay. The parties tvrie
Mark Hardin, of Shclbyvilje, a noble rel
ict of the old time generation of Kentuck
, ians, and the venerable Mrs. Trice, the
mother-in-law of Judge Thos. A. Mar
shal), of the Court of Appeals of that
Siate. At the time of the inariiage, Mr.
Hatdin a clerk for Col. Hart, of Lexing
ton. whose daughter Mr. Clay married,
and Mrs. Price was one of the most ad
mired belles of the State.
Col. Hart was a meichant, and a rich
one for tint early time, full of the whole
hearted hospitality which characterized
the pioneers ol the West, and proud of
the brilliant promise of his new son-in
law. The wedding therefore was a sump
tuous affair ; invitations were sent to ev
ery family of respectability within the
settled portions of the Stale, and the man
sion of the bride's father was thronged
with guests from the gayest youth to the
icravest age. The visitors vaned in cos
tume as much as in )ears. IloneM tan
I hark dyed homespun was there blushing
1 beside the gaudv European fribberies of
I laced coats, r?J file a , and small swords.
The venerable couple I have named,
: had not seen each other for a long period,
until their late meeting. They recalled
I the incidents of the wedding, and revived
I memories of friends and companions
among the Urge company there gathered
togethrr, some of whom had died in rich
jt-s and honors, others in disgrace or desti
tution ; all were gone ! sixty years had
! swept all but themselves from their places
among the living."

another meeting on Thursday. 'Ihe Ser
geaiH-ai-arm*, who has been in search of;
John Brown, Jr., has returned, and in
formed the Committee that he is in Ohio,
but refused to be taken. He deties tl e
Committee and Congress, and ?ays
his friends will not permit him to leave]
ihe Slate. The Sergeant-at- Arms having
no power to act, and being afraid of get
ling into difficulty, did not press the mat
ter, but reported ihe facts as above lo the
Committee, who have the matter under
consideration. They meel again on Fn
dav, w hen the matter will probably be
reported to ihe Senate. ? Baltimore Ex

! He sent for Flanagan and deliberately
'shot him as he approached his (Land's)!
door. He was without cause jealous of
Land. They were both men of position
and property. Gov. Wise was the coun
sel of Land, and made a speech of six
hours' length in his defence.
A bill has passed the U. S. Senate au

a continuous road from Piedmont, on Ihe
Baltimore and Ohio Rail-road, in Hamp

The Gill Net Troubles.
On one day 1 as ( week the steam-pro
peller Cathcart was dispatched down the
river on Ihe service of prevention of fish
ing by gill. nets. The luost it could do
was to give notice to the gillers it might
meet w \ h the illegality of their en
terprise, and warn them to desist. 'l ite
' Cathcart returned on Saturday afternoon
to Georgetown, having warned approach
ing twenty gtlling parties, and will leave a
gaiu this evening, carrying the proper of
ficers of the State of Mary land, authorized
to put an end to gilling, by force if neces
sary. The Cathcart is armed with a six
pounder and a supply of muskets, with a
crew of filteen men. It is to be hoped
that there will be no necessity for the use
of force, as it isobviouslv the duty of all
to obey the law without hesitation. ? Na

Sad Termination to a Frolic.
A correspondent ol t ie Richmond Dis
patch, writes from Harrisonburg, Va.# un
der date of April 7ih, as fol ows :
On Thursday night last there was a
terrible tragedy enacted in this county.
The circumstonces, as near as I can 'earn
them, are as follows : There was a wed
ing at the residence of Mr. Devier, on
Briery Branch, in this county. Mr. D.'s
daughter was married to a Mr. Sites.
Some time in the evening, after the mar
riage was over, a party of young men.
some eight or nine in number, went to
Mr. D.'s house and commenced serena
ding the ne wly-marr ied couple with tin
pans, bells, &c. Mr. James Devier, a
brother of the bride, went out to request
the serenaders to leave, whereupon tl e
serenadeis took to their heels, and young
Mr. D. and a friend who accompanied
him, started in pt.rsuil of the parly. De
vier, com.ng tip near to one of them, a
?nan by the name of Small wood, the latter
suddenly turned upon Mr. Devier and j
shot him ? the slugs taking effect, one in j
Mr. Devier's forehead, one below the eye, i
and one in the neck ; either of winch!
would have caused death. Mr. Devier
was shot and died instantly. The parties
in the affair, or at least a part ol them are
highly respectable. In any event it is a
very sad termination to what was, per
haps, intended to be a frolic.
A Text fioui Sir Astlcy Cooper.
"A stomach, gentlemen," says Sir Ast
ley Cooper, in one ?>f his lectures, "has
been com pared to n laboratory, and to a
kitchen, but, gentlemen, it is a stomach ,
and like nothing but a stomach.'' The
threat surgeon was light. Digestion and
dssiinmihaiioii resemble no other process
in nature or art. !t was with a vivid ap
preciation t?f this fact that the distinguished
Hoiloway originated his system of treat
ment. 1 1 i = Pills which have become ihe
popular specifics of the age, act directly
up >n this controlling organ, and through
it upon al! its dependencies Dyspepsia
a lerrillc dictate in it>eif, and tiie primal
*ource of as many eul* as were contained
in Pandora's box, yields rapidly and cer
tainly to iheir aperient, ami septic ant) res
torative properties. Uilike any othei
medicament in use, they seems to earrv
on the three processes of puigation, disin
fection and invigoration Minuliarn ously ;
so that the !>ystem is regulated, the blood
punhcd, and ihe nervous and muscular
organization renovated at the same time,
llerce their almost miraculous cures of
nearly all internal diseapes. Their popn
laiity, and that of the Ointment for exter
nal complaints and injuries, 's simply the
homage of ihe world to Truth. Men.
woman ami children, upon whom the dis
ciples of a musty, unphilosophical. and
vapid pathology have pronounced sentence
of death, recover by the use of these med
icines, and shame the ora' h*-* of the pro
fession bv taking a new lease of life.
These are results that all mankind can ap
preciate. No interested opposition can
withstand th< m. The old Pharmaco
poiia, the old practice of ph)*ie, (venera

new legime. liolloway's Tills and Oint

A ii. an named Sanborn was last week
arrested in Massachusetts, by Deputies of j
the Sergeant-ai- Arms ofdhe U. S. Senate.1
for contempt in refusing to appear before
the John Brown Investigating Committee.
He was forcibly taken from the officers
by a mob of abolitirnisis, and subsequent- j
ly discharged by a Judge, before who.nl
he was taken under a writ of habeas cor
pus. It is thus abolitionism sets at de
fiance justice and the laws of the country.
Sister's Lovk. ? Beautiful is the love
of a sutei; the kiss that hath no guile, and
no passion: the touch is poetry, and bring
eth peace and satisfaction to the heart, and
no fever to the pulse. Beautiful is the
love of a sister, it is inoon'igh; on our
path ? it hath light but no heat; it is of
heaven, and yet sheds its peace upon the
earth.
