NEWS FROM THE ATLANTIC STATES.
We arc indebted to Mr. E. S. Wilson, of Reynolds, To<Ul Co.’s Express, for the early delivery of Atlantic papers on Thurs day. Our thanks are also due to the ever attentive J. W. Gregory, for a copy of the N. Y. Evening Express, which we received through Reynolds, Todd & Co., on Wednes day evening. The P. M.* Co.’s steamship Panama ar rived at San Krarcisco Tuesday afternoon, 4th inst., bringing fourteen days later in telligence from the Atlantic States. The news by the Panama is not very im portant, although there are some features in it of considerable interest. The first blow has at last been struck for the long looked for Republic cast of the Sierra Madre. A revolution has broken out on the Rio Grande, embracing the de partments of Tainaulipas, New Leon, and Cnahuila. The Texans are instigating and aiding the rebels, and we may soon look for more annexation. A new treaty is now in process of nego tiation between Spain, France, and Eng land, for guaranteeing the maintenance of Spanish power in Cuba. James Fennimore Coopor died at his re sidence at Cooperstown, Otsego county. New York, on Sunday, 14th ultimo. Traces of Sir John Franklin and his par ty have been discovered by the American expedition. They found the graves of three of his men, together with pieces of meat, fragments of clothing, tin pans, &c., to the northward of Port Innis, Wellington Chan nel. There has been a terrible earthquake in Naples. It is stated that two thousand live hundred persons were killed by it, and se veral towns have been entirely laid in ruins. The first train propelled by steam passed over the Panama railroad, from Navy Bay to Gatun, on the 11th of October. The States of San Salvador and Guate mala are following the example of Nicara gua and engaging in revolution. A revolution of somewhat a formidable character has broken out in Chile on ac count of the recent Presidential contest, in •which Don Manuel Monft succeeded over General Cruz, after tl.e most strenuous ex ertions on both sides. The partisans of the defeated candidate have complete posses sion in Coquimbo and Concepcion, and have seized a large amount of government cus tom house funds, as also a government steamer and one belonging to an A’nglish man. T. J. llaktlky. —This T. J. Hartley is the same Henri/ Hartley who, in February or March last was arrested in San Francis co for stealing daguerrcotj’pe views and likenesses from Mr. Vance, and also from Mr. Coombs, who at that time kept on Clay street. He also stole a pistol from Vance's rooms. The daguerreotypes he gave to a woman of ill-fame in a house on Washing o ton street. We recollect distinctly the whole circumstances. We then gloried in the name of “ Items” of a prominent morn ing paper in the city, and the particulars were told to us as profound secrets, with the request that the gentleman's (?) name should not be mentioned, as he belonged to a very respectable and wealthy family in the Atlantic States, and powerful influences were at work to relieve him from his dis graceful position. We had determined not to publish his name, but learning that other “ Items” were cognizant of the circum stances we inserted his name in the para graph as did other papers. ITow he even tually got clear of the predicament, we never learned. When we met him here, wc thought we had seen him before, but for the life of us “ could not place him,” until his last exploit transpired, and his whole previous history in San Francisco flashed upon our memory. He lias changed but little since lie was in the Station House at tbe Bay, and the police there, if he goes in that direction, will have but little difficulty in recognising him, more especially ns liis daguerreotype, if not burned in the last fire, is now hanging up in the Marshal's of fice. Hartley was appointed County Clerk by Judge Smith, who preferred this un known stranger to a respectable citizen of the county to occupy that responsible post. Buckeye Ravine —lt is .“aid that at this ravine which is situated about two miles from the Hill, gold-bearing earth has been thrown up along its course in a continuous line for about four miles. This pile has an average heighth of about eight feet, with a base of twelve or fifteen feet wide. This dirt will pay about fifteen cents per pan throughout, when washed. A Fine Lump.—A gentleman named Dreher took out of his claim, on the Big Bar of Mokelumne, a week or so ago, a lump of pure gold which weighed about two hundred and fifty dollars. The claim throughout is represented as paying well. At Douglas’ Flats, twenty-five miles southeast of this place, the miners cart their earth a distance of nearly a mile for wash ing, and earn from five to ten dollars a day over expenses. The Flats arc in a valley much resembling the crater of an extinct volcano. jp®"" Many notices and local items are omitted for want of room. Married. —By Judge J. C. Scrihner, at Angels Camp, on the 3d in<t., Mr. William li. Bean, of the Cherokee Nation, to Mrs. Nancy Ann Henry, of Arkansas.

Ye powers that rule o’er brooks and foun- Take pity on us in these mountains; [tains, Let not our hourly prayer be vain, But send, oh send us lots of rain, Till every gulch can float a bark— As much as floated Noah's ark When Captain Noah made a stop, On Mount Ararat’s drowned top. How many rich in piles of dirt, Can scarce afford to buy a shirt, And lose their time, whole weeks together, Predicting changes in the weather ; Their time divided fairly even In watching earth, and wateringheaven. \ passing cloud sometimes gives hope To us who wash without much soap Then out comes Phoebus to dispel it, Ah, woe is me, I grieve to tell it, And though we know the wish is evil, We wish the sunshine at the devil. Propitious powers, hear my petition. And others in the same condition : Breakdown your atmospheric sluices, And let the sky distil its juices, Till we can ramble where we please In water reaching to our knees, And think tint deity diviner, That had compassion on the MINER. • • .
