The Columbus Robbert.-AVc learn from Co
lumbus that, besides Thomas C. Me Keen and Col.
John'!- Lewis, two other persons, named AN illiam
N. Jackson and Alien O. have been arrest
ed as participators in the late Bank robbery at
that place. The latter was the bookkeeper ol the
institution, and was one of the officers who was
locked up in the vault. It appears that he let hi
accomplices in before Mr. Murduck, the secreta
ry, arrived from supper, and then gave a signal,
when the light wusddown out, and Murdock uu"
seized. Bass put the money into a bag ft;* the
robbers, and then laid down again, and si.dcivu
himself to be put inta the vault.
A letter published in the New Orleans I ropic
states that since the late earthquake the Island ol
Martinique had changed it" level; on the northern
side it is two feet higher above high writer mark
than formerly, and on the opposite side *t is sunk
two feet. The letter adds that all the hotisCj
have an inclination from the perpendicular.
An examination of the condition of the Bank of
Illinois has been made by a Air. David Prichett,
who was appointed the Commissioner to wind up
the affairs of the Bank. ? non entering the vaults,
instead of finding specie to the amount ol $307,
1M(), as reported by the Cashier, Mr. Prichett
found but $188,000, leaving a deficit of $121,000,
which the officers of the Bank refuse to account
for. Of course this dcvelopement has produced
great excitement at Shawncetoun.
Ot'TRAGR ON AN AmKRIC W \ 1>>M. —HiC brig
Ceylou, arrived at Salem, on Sunday la-t, brings
accounts of an outrage on an Am -rican vessel by
British boarding officer-. The Regi.-t-r states
that the Captain of the CeyIon reports that the
barque Roderick *>hu, of Providence, ( ’apt. P.:*-h
ard T. Si ns, of Salem, was at Accra, I Member
10, t‘> sail for \vindward c-»ast. Captain Sims
had been boarded by an officer of II. 13. M. br.g
Spv, and treated in a next shameful and in-u!i
jjig manner, insomuch that ( 'apt. S. had Kit
bound to make a rcprrvmt.ition oi the case to
the British commandant of the station. Capt.
Sims' statement was fully c »rro!>-.»rated by an
Kngli'h gentleman, a p tase^ger with him at the
The testimony taken at Harrisburg in the ca-c
of Mason, charged with the murdered the Par-]
th'onores, goes very clearly, to prove the inno
cence of the accused. An alibi at the time the j
murder was committed is clearly made out r«\
two respectable citizens.
Mammoth Stk.amko at.—k i-state . in the New
York papers that Mr. Burden, a most ingenious
and enterprising citizen of Troy, in that State,
“is about to construct a steamboat to run between
the above- two cities, to be su hundred Jbf Kmg.-—
She is expected to make tie trip from Xew York
to Troy, 160 miles, in a hours !*"
It is computed that there are GO,Odd Jews-in the
t'nited States. _
A Stow.—We see by a /I mtreal paper that a
gentleman with wooden leg-, i:i that city, ha->
challenged a friend in the same condition to a
race, which was to come oTin a few days.
Stf.muoat Kxclosiow—One ot the boilers ot
the steamer Mohcgun, which left New \ urk for
Stoning ton, exploded on Monday afternoon, the
steam escaping outwards, t hree or four persons
were slightly scalded. About one hundred and
seventy passengers were on board, who were, of
course, greatly alarmed. The damage to the
boat w as very trilling, ami she will be able to re
sume hei trips in a day or two.
The Cincinnati Gazette states that upwards <>:
100,000 bushels of iee hue** been pack' d away by
dealers ot* that city, f»>r th ‘ consumption of the
ensuing season. One deal* r has 140,000 bushels.
The steamboats, it will be recollect* d, require,
large quantities during the summer months.
The amount of specie imp u ted into Boston
from the 1st of January, I$13, to the 221 instant,
was $3,949,739 in gold, and $>9,320 in silver.—
These imports were almost exclusively from Eng
land, by the Cunard steamers.
The statements and counter statements of the j
newspapers in relation to changes in the Cabinet,
removals and appointments to otlr*e, &e., are
amusing enough—showing how greedily ith-iv
rumors are sn itched up, arid how little is realty
known out of the “conclave" of what isg Map on
nt hea*l quarters.
Ohio Banks.—There are now only ten Tmk>
in the State of Ohio. A state meat ( f tneir con
dition for the quarter ending on the 31st March
shows that their aggregate capital was then $3.

other liabilities $513,43*1. Their assets are.
notes and bills discounted $3,929,374; specie,

$.352,000; other resources >I,12G,G;9.

Late from Guadaeoupe.—The brig Rapid,
Capt. Mountfort, has arrived at Savannah from
Point Petre, via St. Thomas, having left the for
mer port on the 30th March, and the latter on the
4th instant.
Point Petre was recovering very slowly from
the late calamitous earthquake and but a moder
ate progress in re-buildiug it thus far, had been
made- The inhabitants we re principally employ
ed in digging among the ruins in search of their
embedded property, and the remains of their
friends and relatives. From five to ten bodies,
w’ere daily recovered. It is estimated that up
wards of six thousand persons lost their lives.
The market was well supplied with almost ev
ery article of American produce. Liberal con
tributions, from various sources, of provisions,
have been made, and are daily distributed by the
authorities to the indigent. This has created a
dullness in cargo sales—and only moderate sup
plies are required. The latest sales of Flour
were at $5 pcrbbl., Mess Beef $8, Pork $9, Rice
3 cents per lb., Fish $3 per cwt., White Pine and
Pitch Pine Lumber, was selling at $18 a $18,50—
