THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 1861.
, v NEW HIMPSHIBE.
Tiie election in New Hampshire on
Tuesday last resulted in a glorious Repub
lican triumph. In 136 towns Beny, Re
publican candidate for Governor, leads his
Democratic opponent 4,492 votes. N The
Republican candidate for Congress are all
elected, and the Legislature is overwhelm
ingly Republican.
GOT. HOUSTON.
Our dispatches this morning Indicate the
breaking out o£ an irrepressible .conflict
between Gov. Houston and the Secession
Convention. The Governor is not willing
that the latter shall have everything their
own way, and it is said he is raising troops
on his own accord. The Convention
threaten to depose the Governor and throw
over the office to another man, if he docs
not come to terms.
THE LOSS ON THE JLAKES IN 1860.
The Board of Lake Underwriters have

Of the 578 lives lost during the past year,
400 are attributed to the disaster of the
Lady Elgin. This Is, undoubtedly larger
than the reality, though, from the nature
of the calamity, it is impossible to arrive
at the number lost with absolute certainty.
TWO ROUTES TO THE OCEAN—
A TEST.
Our readers will probably recollect the
announcement in the Thibcke last Sep
tember of a purchase in tliis city of 16,000
bushels of wheat by a Canadian gentleman,
for shipment to Liverpool—part by the St.
Lawrence route, and part by New York.
The wheal on the 10th of Sep
tember, shipped from this port to Port Col
borne on the 13th, and i:t Port Dalhousie,
on Lake Ontario, the cargo was divided —
10,000 bushels being sent down the St.
Lawrence, and 6,000 bushels to Oswego
and through the New York canals. The
result of the experiment has been already
partially stated in a communication previ
ously published, in our columns; but in
the St Catherine’s Journal, of a recent
date, we find thefollowingtablcs, showing
the time and cost df transportation by
both routes:

From the above tables li will be seen
that the shipper lost lie per bushel ou the
wheat scut by tbc New York route in
charges alone; ■while the ten thousand
bushels sent by the St. Lawrence route ar
rived in Liverpopl 5 i days before it This
loss of time in transportation might have
proved otherwise disastrous; but at any
rate the difference in charges alone is verv
great.
While the New York legislators and com
missioners arc advancing the rates of tolls
on Western produce, it is important for
shippers to know that they are not entirely
dependent on the New York canals lo
forward their property; and that probably
before another year has passed away, the
subject of establishing regular lines of pro
pellers of 1,000 tons burden between Chi
cago and Port Colbornc, and between
Dalhousic and Montreal, will have taken
definite shape. On this subject the paper
above alluded to lias the following:

each—with a speed of X 2 miles per hour—is

[Special Dispatch to the Cincinnati Gazette.] -
Washington, March 12,1861. “
MR. CRITTENDEN NOT TO BE A SUPREME VtrDGE.
All speculation as regards Senator Critten
den’s nomination for the Supreme Judgeship
is ended, afpnnolvote of the Cabinet deciding
t hat he will not be nominated for the position.
Hon. John M. Bead of Pennsylvania seems to
head the list of candidate? for the office, hut
it is believed; no haste will be manifested in
making a nomination. .
THE COMMISSIONER SIM 1 OF. PATS NTS.
The Senate held lint a brief open session
to-day. George G, Fogg of New.Hampshire,
who has been tendered the Commisaionerahip
of Patents, docs not seem inclined to accept
it, and the'probabQities are, that from the high
character of Hon. Mr. Theakir’a recommen
dations, os wdl as the stronginfluence brought
to bear in his favor, he will receive the ap
pointment. V
It Is believed that the policy of the Adminis
tration. regarding Fort Sumter, h;is. been set
tled. No orders have been issued as yet for
the withdrawal of Major Anderson, hut the
prevailing impression' at the Adjutant Gen
eral’s office seemed to he that the order would
soon be issued.’ Asa stratcgetical necessity.
Fort Sumter must he or Major An
derson must be reinforced before twelve
days roll around. In the opinion of General
Scott, it is quite Impossible to afford Major
Anderson further supplies or reinforce him,
nnd the necessity for Lis withdrawal is ap
parent.
MORE APPOINTMENTS.
Wm. B. Dole was confirmed to-day as Com
missioner of Indian Affairs. Jno. Lockwood
has been tendered the Milwaukee Postoffice.
Robert Payne was yesterday confirmed as
United States Marshal of the NbrUiernDistricc
of Ohio.
The office-seeking crowd at the President's
house and the Departments increases rather
than diminishes. To-day it was almost im
possible for one to work lius way through the
anxious ones congregated in the State De
partment, and passage in the vicinity of tho
Secretary’s room.
Walter Corwin of Ohio, son cf Hon. Tho?.
Corwin, was to-day appointed to a first-class
clerkship in the Interior Department, Two
clerks who resigned in that Department to
day have left for Montgomery, Alabama, for
situations.
337,327
$668,585
Speaker Littlejohn of New York is appoint
ed Consul to Liverpool, thereby disappointing
at least two thonsand applicants.
THE PRESIDENT HARD AT WORE.
The President is about the busiest person in
■Washington. He is working early and late. Hi*
time is taken up mostly with the ceaseless tide
of office-seekers constantly pouring in upon
him. lie has not had an opportunity to ri(!“
out since his inauguration, and yesterday step
ped out into the grounds of the White House
for the first time. His family only see him nt.
dinner, he being compelled from fatigue' to
retire to his room as soon as he leaves his
-office. *
MILITARY MATTERS.
Adjutant-General Thomas says ho troops
have been ordered .from, the West, cxcepliM'
those stationed on the frontier of Texas. The
resignation of Capt. Withers, Assistant Adju
tant General, was owing to large private inter
ests in Texas, which demanded his personal
attention to prevent their going to waste. If**,
denounced the secession movement, and re
gretted that circumstances bejohd his control
required him. to surrender his commission.
Some troops lately under the. command of
Gen. Twiggs have been ordered here, quarter*
having been provided lor them in the old
theater.
COMMODORE STEWART’S CASE.
Commodore Stewart has not resigned, a.*
telegraphed abroad. He objects, however, tn
be named as senior .flag officer in tne Naval
Register, there being no such rank, and ask*
that he be placed at the head ot the list of
Captains, where he stood before he was dis
placed by the Naval retiring Board.
WESTERN APPOINTMENTS.
Most of thcWcstcm members of Congress
arc still here looking oiler the claims cf
friends for office. .The West seems to com-;
in for the lion’s share, although the President
is understood to be determined not to appoint
any more from Illinois for two weeks yet.

GREAT BRITAIN —THE MINISTRY.
[From the Liverpool Post.]
Great fears are entertained for the etabxlit*'
of the Ministry. They are weak on every
point but one—their foreign policy. The in
cidents of the last session gave them a shake*
and they have not opened the present session,
with that distinct firmness which would in
spire confidence. The abandonment of :v
pledge, on the ground that the country was
apathetic, is regarded as proceeding mow
from their fears than from their conviction of
the utility of reform, while their neutrality iu
reference to the two bills introduced on Tuc s
day evening is contrary to the decisive con
duct expected in a strong government. Tbcr;:
is, too, a want of cohesion in parlies, and tin:
adverse vote on .Tuesday night ‘indicates a
great uncertainty as to mltusterial support
on financial questions. ‘Within the Cabinet a
want of harmony is reported, and in conse
quence the Premier, it is understood, would
willingly, in deference to age, retire from
office. Were the conservatives rcadv, they
might compel resignation, or an appeal to the
country; but they arc mot ready, and their
chiefs are disqualified by their recent speeches
to lead.
As adverse votes, however, are more than i
probable, a change in the Ministry may he ex- :
pected. Lord Palmerston retiring, it is sup
posed that either the Duke of Newcastle or
Lord Herbert would bo called on to form a
Ministry. Mis grace is a treat favorite at
Court, and Sidney Herbert is a decided favor
ite with the country. Under either one or the
other the Peclite element would predominate.
Lord John Russell would retain the Foreign
Secretaryship, and perhaps Sir Janies Graham,
would replace Sir George Oornewell Lewis at
the Home Office. Mr. Gladstone would still
be Chancellor of the Rich? qficr, "and-perhaps
no change would bo made In the Irish or legal
departments. 7 : : v_:. - - . r
A recasting of the Ministry will, of course,
be followed by tbe usual process. The es
sential business or the country will be got
through with becoming speed, on the assur
ance that an appeal will be made to the coun
try before harvest time. .

other of eight on the Piazza San Lorenzo, in
Lueiua, and a third lower down towards :the
Piazza del Fopolo. When the heartfelt shout
of ‘ Viva VltaliaP ran through the air they
seemed a good deal taken aback, and as if hes
itating what to do. This lasted for a moment,
and then they quietly disappeared from the

blood was hot last night, and a great many bad

Since on the Bth ult., we have
had much milder weather, and for the last
four days It has been quite warm, with wind
from the southward aiid westward. Our stock
of snow and ice has • diminished considerably,
and if this warm weather holds a few days
longer, we shall have very little of either. The
ice in. our harbor extends out about one and a
half miles from the docks, and varies in thick
ness from four to ten inches. There was a sail
boat over from the North Maniton island,on
the 20th nit. —it landed at Carp River—report
ed,no ice round the islands. I have not heard
from the Straits of Mackinaw, but do not think
ihc ice there is near as heavy as it was a year
ago.
The inhabitants of oar village received a se
vere shock yesterday, in the death of Mrs.
Burbeck by taking strychnine. She was la
boring under a lit of mental derangement at
the time she took it. She had been very much
out of health all winter, which it Is thought
caused the derangement. J. M. Barbeck, her
husband, is one of our best citizens, and has
the sympathies of ah in hia bereavement. •C.

Held to Bail. —E. P. Napier has been held
to bail in §3OO for burglary in stealing a stove
from the cabin of a vessel lying in the river.

Chicago City Railway Notice. —We Icam
from Supt. Gage that on and after this date the
price of Railway tickets will be twenty-eight
for one dollar instead of thirty as heretofore.
Larceny as Bailee.— A young man turned
John C. Godely was held to bail yesterday in
ssoQ,by Justice MUliken, for larceny as bailee,
in appropriating to his own use a collection
of $25 made for his employers.
Seamen’s Benevolent Society.—An elec
tion of officers of this Society for the ensuing
year will be held at the Society's rooms in
Lmd block, this (Thursday) evening at seven
o’clock. It is important that there be a full
attendance.

Defying the Seasons.— Edgar Sanders of
Lake View seems to be Flora’s special minis
ter with powers plenipotentiary, running all
the year round. Without liic slightest regard
for snow and frost, and season vicisltudes, he
he maintains about him perpetual bloom. Bis
hoc-houses are worth going miles to see, ’and
bis trade in choice plants and flowers is an
nually ou ihe increase.
Jins. Matteson’s Ballai* Concert.— The
Grand Ballad Concert at Bryan Hall to-night
deserves a full house. The programme is
choice,* the artists all approved favorites, and
though home talent is often ungenerously
made secondary to an Inferior imported ar
ticle, still we arc conlid »nt the too general
rule will kuow a variation to-night in fovor of
vocalists of which any city might well be
proud.
“ Grace Greenwood” this Evening.— The
announcement tliat Mrs. Lippencott has .con
sented to deliver a lecture on “ Home and the
Homeless,” at ITctropolltan Hall, th s evening,
will be hailed with pleasure by all who were
so fortunate as to hear her on Monday even in c,
and those who were hindered-from being
present which
had been announced for thesame
evening, will gladly avail themselves <lf this
last opportunity of listening to this remark
able lady.
An Excellent Appointment. —Wc learn
that Mr. J. W. Smith, (formerly of the Michi
gan Central Railroad,) has been appointed to
the office of Commercial Freight Agent of tbc
Michigan Southern Railroad Company, and is
located at their office No. 56 South Clark
street, under the Sherman House, where he is
duly authorized to give rates, execute and
honor contracts, settle overcharges, and gen
erally to transact, business with connecting
Roads and the public, in tlu« department of.
transportation.
J£r. Smith is a gentleman oflargc experience
i:n railroad matters and of high personal worth,
ttnd the appointment is an excellent one for
t)ie Company and for the public.
,Av Important Land Suit. —Wc Icarii that
suits have been instituted in the Superior
Court by the devisees of John F. Wight
against various parties for the recovery of over
two hundred acres of land in this city, on the
North branch of the Chicago river. The land
was soid in 1846 at administrator's sale for
$93.16. It is.now estimated to be worth three
quarters of a million. If the price at which it
sold in 1846 was its fair value, its present value
Is proof ofthe remarkable rise in the value of
land in Chicago since 1846. We understand
the alleged ground for recovery is error in the
administrator's sale. The attorneys for the
devisees are Messrs. W. K. Smith, Sumner
Marble and John Borden.
A Colored Rascal in Trouble.— ln yes
terday’s Police Court before Justice Akin, a
colored man named Charles Williams alias Dr.
Hutchins, was held to ball in SBOO to answer
a charge of obtaining money under false pre
tences. He has been & gay and successful de
ceiver in the sympathy line, having been on a
■vigilant canvass and begging tour through'
this section, representing that .he was a. slave
who had bought his ; own freedom; that,, his,
wile was still in slavery but could be ransom
ed for the sum of SBOO. By these representa
tions he has collected over S4OO from many' of
our prominent citizens': S2O in Evanston; s3s
from a church in.Wankegan; $35 inßockford;
sl3 in Racine; $32 in Milwaukee, and various
sums from, churches in this city and vicinity.
.Vcry> many estimable and truly charitable
persons have hecn and swindled by
him, and it is fortunate that Ms rascalities ore*
brought to an end. He has a wife fo this city.
The greatest source of regret in-'such cases is
the injury done to the really deserving objects
of sympathy by the general distrust and sus
picion one such, black sheep as tMa. perma*
ncntly and widely awakens.

' My pear iTusband :—l am distressed to hear
-from you, and.anxious more and more every
day.-.'Lalmost wish you had'not applied for
■the Post Office here. Bob had a : terrible fight
with William Moses ; yesterday afternoon, and
came home a perfect fright to behold, with
: his clothes torn and bloody, all growing out
of the dispute they had about their fathers’
struggle for the Post Sirs. Moses and
I have bad a small tiff, and now: don’t r speak.
Many here side with us, and I. have no doubt
it' Squire Moses is appointed, after all, that the
people at Liberty Corner will sign unanimous
lor a branch Post Office there, and some say
they, will sooner have their letters - come
: through Skunk’s Misery, though -it’s four
miles rather than have old Moses get
the handling of them. Oh, William,
’ thfe quarrel is very • bitter,* ■ and many
times I wish you had remained quiet InPoke
ville, and not set out after public office at aIL
I learned yesterday that four other names had
been sent on to Washington, John Smith,
William Jcallings, Robert Scopes and Shnbael
Slim, all lof them - having friends signing in
their behalf for one Post Office. Neither of
Ihe nf could alibrd money to get to Washing*
ton,:and you have that advantage. As the
Post Office isn’t worth only -about S3OO a year
do try to gee along as cheap os you can at
Washington, or else, even if you get the office,
it won’t pay. I enclose yoh a pair of socks,
the heels of which I have just run. When you
are appointed Postmaster of course we shall
get all these things by mail for nothing. The

MR. WnXIKINS—HIS SECOND LETTER. .
Willard’s Hotel: I
Washenton, March 11,1801. f
Messrs, Editors; Pm pretty much done
with "Washington, and don’t care who knows
it. Republics are ungrateful I’ve heard tell,
but never the 'same "have experienced it, I
thank a merciful Providence, which for so
many years of my life kept me out of office
seeking, until now this present. I dou’t re
main in Washington after the next train car
ries me away at 5 o’clock, glad to go, and
homesick, for Pokeville. Any station in life,
however humble, is ten thousand times better
than a public post you cannot get, and for rea
sons not creditable to thoseVho bos prom
ised you, which uot meaning Ibat I blame Ibe
memberfroxuour district, Mr. Snawble, though
I should like to have known some ihinys before
I came here, which would have saved me time
which is money, and money which is scarce.
I’ve seen Mr. Snawble often here, amVfelt a
confidence in so doing, growing out of our in
timacies last falljWhen he was running for
Congress in our District. Miles I’ve ridden
with him, and for hours conversed on the
questions of the day, wherein he alwavs
agreed with me,-let alone his remarks made to
my wife as to my services to the cause which
he would be proud to acknowledge same
anywhere. I’ve bad to’ leam since os how
—a word to the wise— hayin tools are laid aside
when the hay is made.
to be prolix, Mr. Snawble all along
didn’t seem so cheerful to see me here as l’u
have wished, not as he was when be was run
ning out our way. He’s several times called a
hack pretty suspiciously near to the time I
was just calling out to him on the Avenue.
He has a way oT saying when we meet, “O,
Mr; WiUikins, good morning, sir. I’ll see you
again shortly,” the which latter, Fve come to
suspect, he dou’fdo if he can help.
To-day, I was figuring how much I’d spent
already for this office, and, quire apropos , Mr.
"\VUlard he helped me out in my calculations
■with afew figures of his own. With this I made
up a snow lhatis perfectly heart-sickening, in
view of the fact that a hackman yesterday
tucked onto me a bad live dollar bill I’d
dodged the contemplation some days, but th .r
ain’t no good. When expenses are running
on there must be an end.
When Mr. Willard lie sent me his little
rfoosfter, I thought *twas lime to take my reck
oning, I climb.np to my room Number sev
eral hundred anti more, ■with a heavy heart,
r,nd sot down on my trunlL Here are the
ligures I made.

Tbe SEartyr-Crtsli—A Poem,
This is the title of a thin duodecimo volume
of Proem and Poem, just published by Messrs.
D. B. Cooke & Co., of this city—author os yet
unannounced, but understood to reside in this
city. The over-long, and far too learned pre
face concludes with a brief statement of the
author’s aspirations as follows.
If the conscientious, but hell-bunted states
man, shall have found some solace and en
couragement in coatemDlatingthis unfinished
picture of‘Myrtro;* if the frothy speech er
shall have discovered any of his own features
in the lUlle miniature of ‘ Apbro;Mf the
younger spirit who 13 seething after Congress
ional^laurels shall have heeded the whispers
herein breathed into the ear of * Zest o’ or
having surveyed the death-scene of Napoleon,
shall more intelligibly discern between Famd
and Honor; if'any soul seekiug a deeper sym
pathy with the True,'the Beautiful and the
Good, shall here,‘as Fancy draws aside the veil
of Care, catch some new glimpses thereof, or
be wooed thereto by t any strain hero feebly
struck, &c., <fcc., etc.
As to the style of the poem, we do not mean
to be unkind when we venture the assertion
that neither the “ conscientious but hell-hunt
ed statesmannor “ the frothy speochcr,”
nor any of the other above named, ran read
live consecutive verses of this :Poem aloud
without experiencing a sensation in the jaws
aldn to that produced by the reprehensible
practice of cracking walnuts with the teeth.
Never were whole sentences more alliterative
ly jaw-breaking.’ The stiffesf consonantlcomhi
nations the poet makes straight at with.all the.
zest of a steeple-chaser, happiest at hugest
obstacles to his progress. Take the following
specimens: r

Fatal Result of Rongh Flay«»Bepre*
. hensible Inhumanity,:
Wc yesterday referred to the result of. rangh
play between two hostlers at the-North Chi
cago Raflway, by which it was feared that one
of them was fatally injured? 'The wounded
man, John ‘ Cornell, decease ! on Tuesday
night at the City Hospital. The othei,party,.
NjchoUs WerdeU, has &ai the city. '.
The previously stated, began In a
rough froUc K without Jll will On either side,
until the exchange of Irthwß. ‘W’erdell getting
cScitcd, struck his. fellow violently upon the
hqad with his broom .handle, fracturing the
skull. The jury of inquest summoned yes
terday by the acting found their ver.
diet in accordance. wiUt.thcse facts. :
There is,- feature of the case
which devolves muchtlamc upon the parties
responsible therefor.- It seems 1 on ihVestiga-'
tion that the affair tooljt'place "ou Monday, .and
that the injured mau'yas taken up ednseless
and removed to the hay loft, where without
any investigation os to his condition, or medi
cal attendance, he was-allowed' to remain for
over twenty-four Lours, or until Tuesday
noon, when some one becoming alarmed,
called the attention’of the ; police to the
matter. 3 : • • • ,
Attention to the injuries of the man in sea
son ihight have saved bis life. It is urged,but
insufficiently to excuse the .neglect, that it
was not known there was a fracture of the
slfull. Deceased was about twenty-five years
of age, and leaves no relatives in this city.
j. W s BlssollAgaln,
; Our readers arc by this time quite familiar,
with the name and exploits of J. TV. Bissell>
who has succeeded in bridging the gap which
separates most men from fame, or inhis case,
notoriety, by.uo leas a structure than theKock
Maud Railroad Bridget .> For some time x>ast
Bisscll.has been in Washington, and thither
last week came J. F. Tracy, Esq., of this city,
Supt. of the Rock Island Railroad, whose du
ties have manifestly given him a close connec
tion with the prosecution of the alleged con
spirators against the property of the company
-3lr. BiaseU, as wax*ek&’c known .here by
private dispatch, availed himself of Mr. Tracy’s
movements on his return home by the New
York Central, and caused him to bo arrested,
on Tuesday, m Rochester, N. T., npon an order
made by one of the Justices of the Supreme
Court of that State, holding Mr. Tracy to bail
in the sum of six thousand dollars. "We un
understaud the arrest grows out of Mr. Tra
cy’s alleged participation in .the arrest of Bis
sau at the last term of the Recorder’s Courti
upon a warrant charging him with libel.
Manifestly the whole affair on the part of
Blssell was purely malicious and for purposes
of revenge. A few hours sufficed to'secure
for Mr. Tracy all the baU required, so that the
annoyance was merely temporary.
The statement made by the Democrat and
the Journal yesterday, that Mr. Tracy was com
pelled to go to jaU, is incorrect. He was ar
rested on the train coming west, at 9 o’clock,
Pi sl, and detained at the Osborn House over
night. In the morning he was promptly
bbUed by Messrs. Sibley & Sprague,..
jiIABVELLOCS SLEIGHT OP HAND.—One has
often occaeion to admire the wonderful sleight
of hand attained by long practice in one par
ticular dass .of movements. The nimble
operatives in a button factory move their
fingers so quickly that the unpractised eye
can scarcely follow them. Workmen in the
vhrious mechanic arts frequently attain a
quickness of manipulation, almost incredible.
A case in point was- brought to our notice
yesterday. First Ict us premise that recently
in giving the chum of an inventcr of a new
machine for stamping letters, it was stated
in these columns that it would stamp fifty a
thinulc. To show that the hand is still in
advance of machinery, it was yesterday shown
us that one of the employees in the Post Office
in this city can stamp two hundred letters a
minute. Incredible as this may appear, this is
a fact, readily demonstrable. In the pretence
of some visitors, a day or two since, this was
actually accomplished. There seems there
fore no present need of stamping machines in
the Post Office.
