The next Congress will contain. in both
branches, strong majorities in favor oi the Ad
ministration—when the session commence?.;
Whether these majorities will remain the san e,
at the close of the session, is a matter or g.ea.,
doubt. With that, however, we have now
nothing to do. It does not, follow, that, be-;
cause the Whigs are in a minority in Congress,
they will be useless there. On the contrary
we think, their ‘-mission" is important. Lis.
not expected that they will be noisy, or factious: ■
on the coutrary, their political friends hope to
Bee them acting fairly and discreetly. But. in
the divisions that will arise, in the dominant;
party, on more than one great question, the*
will hold the balance of power, and will be
enabled to act frequently, so as to eflect great j
good to the country. V\e trust they will be
active and vigilant—exposing error, corruption.

The increase and improvement ot the Navy
of the lT. S., is likely to be a subject which
will receive attention at the land* of the pre-,
sent Administration. Queen ^ ictoria's late re
view of the “wooden walls of England." is a
matter of pride and congratulation with the j
people of Great Britain, as showing the power
of their country—and it has stirred up other
powers to make exertions in behalf ot their j
naval marine. The Richmond Erqmrer says
that it has positive assu ranees that Mr. Secreta
ry Dobbin is fully awake to the necessities o;
our naval service, and that he is doing all that
can be done within the scope of Ls power to
perfect its organization. Whatever valuable!
suggestions may be got from an accura*e stu i\
of the condition of the English, and French
navies, he will introduce into his measures lor

The smuggling of ^ame and such taxable j
articles into Paris, under the petticoats of wo* j
men. ha^ become so frequent, that a female '
has been attached to the bureau ot several of ;
the barriers, in order that .-he may search un- J
uer the garments of suspected individuals—j
Recently a woman with haunches, sa>s the i
Pa*r.e. ’like the Hottentot Venus, presented ,
herself at one oi the gates. The agents, who |
are always teaious o: stout people, requested;
the lady with the phenomenal contour to stop, j
She re;used, aiu pushed by. One ot the cu«- j
tom house employees seized her, and com men- ;
ced pressing a is finger on various parts of her |
body, as it he were leeiing to see whether she j
was’ rips. She screamed and fought, and m j
her struggles a partridge fell from under her
skirts to the ground. Her contraband wares
were probably strung like dried apples, and the j
escape of the*partridge loosened the whole.— |
Down came a quail, anu then a snipe, and j
then another quail, and a woodcock, till the
woman, whose embonpoint had visibly dimin
ished. was thrust into the office, where the fe
male, attached to the establishment, commen

lament on the !C;h ultimo, as the latest
ispect of the eastern question—the debate,
which, it is said, caused the sinking in the
On moving that the House, at its ruing, do
a*'journ until Friday, Lord John Russell made
tr.." prom seii, explanation respecting the Mate
Dl the negotiations on the subject of the differ
ences between Russia and Turkey, He should
not enter, he said, upon the defence of the
Government, which had not been attacked,
the Housn having considerately left in the
hands of the Government the conduct of these
negotiations. With respect to the production
ot papers, he had not found that it had been
usual in such cases to lay papers on the table
while the negotiations were still pending, nor
until they were brought to some issue. He
then proceeded to give an outline ot the trans
actions as they had occurred, without referring
tu documents which were of the nature of se
cret paper.-, but glancing at incident" general
ly known to the [louse and the public. When
the present Government entered upon office
i. s attention had been called to the question
of the Holy Places, and he wrote to Lord
Gowiey, our ambassador at Paris: but a a! later
period, he had been informed by the Russian
Minister in England, that the Emperoro! Russia
was satisfied with the concession made to him
upon that matter, and he felt satifi-d that noth
ing would happen to disturb the relations be
tween Russia and Turkey. Lord John then
adverted to the arrival of Prince Menschikorf
at Constantinople, in March, and to the inci
dent between him and Fuad EtTendi, the Tur
kish Minister for Foreign Affairs: to ’he request
of Colonel Rose, that the British fleet sue uiu
proceed from Malta to the neighboihood of
Constantinople and to Ids withdrawal of that
request. On the arrival of Lord Stratford at
that capital, in April, he was informed by the
lur&.s:i id11»i" er that certain demands ha>i
or eii made by the Ru-siai: Ambassador, a com
pliance with which, he Sudan's Government
considered wuiiid not he compatible with it
indepenuence: at the same time, the l urki-h
Min.s er had sent in reply, not a simple nega
tive. nut a note calculated To put an end to the
d-spute. Punee Menscnikoif. instead of treat
ing 1 h> note U" a basis o r further negotiations
w:thdiew from C0r,"ta-T-cpie. a step wb ch he
(Lord John) cons,tiered vva- to be regretted.—
It appeared to hm that tire withdrawal cf the
Rus-ian mis-dori, aided by the preparations
made b\ Ru--ia—a m: mg naval and zz.i?*t«iry
force having need advance.: to the frontier- of
i’u:ke>— was a moM uaioriunale step, earn
irited to create great alarm. Her -N.«*ie.M* s (ijv
ernnient ha t, in consequence, thought it neces
sary to give directions that the Briti-h heel
should proceed from MadafoRie neuihhorh »od
ot the Lurdaaelles, anil a French fl-et took the
-ame course, 'die two g wemments of England
and France hav:ng acted entire.v m con
cert, in order to obtain a -olction of th > ques
tion compatible with the n: lependence and in
tegrity of the Porte, and not derogatory to Rus
sia. The next step whs that toe Emperor ot
parties of Aloidav.a and U aiiaciua, ;** >ing a
declaration. that this was not to be conside.ed
an invasion <»! the I’iincipaiities or an j*r* ot
war, but only a* a guarantee cl peace, and a
pressure upon the I ur* *n Government to ob
tain those securities to which Russia was en
titled. it was considered by b. n Kn gland and
Fra: ce tna?. looking at the inters*!* at stake,
it was desirable that the iurki'h Government
*hou!d forego its right to regard the act as a
a:bdii ari l that it should not decline to en
ter into lurther negotiations, of winch the am
bassadors of ti.e I .vo powers endeavored to
gather up the threads. U nen ’he Russian G >•
vernment had occupied the Principalities. Aus
tria changed her views upon thi-s .*ubject and
with reference to the treaty oi I'll deemed n
recessary that there shou:d he a c inference of
the powers: and the Austrian Minister for For
eign Affairs having adopted a propo* lion oi
the French Government as the groundwork of
a proposal to Russ a. the note con*, lining it
was fin v arranged ami settled to the sa'isfac
tion of th** lour powers on the 01*1 oi July.—
7o this note the Kmptror of R i>* a had given
bis a hesion Supposing the matter ot tins
note to be fully arranged, the:** would s::ii re
main the evacuation oi tne Prior ;a. ties: and
it was qu te evident that no settlement couiu he
satisfactory that did not include their imme*
date evacuation, which, accorling to Rede
claration of Prince Gortschaketf, was to io.iow
the satisfaction obtained from Turkey. He
must a*k the permission of the House to sa.
nothing more upon this head, snd request mat
the mode ot obtaining the end in view might
be left ii* the hands o! the Kxecirive (govern
ment. He thought there wa* now a fair pro*,
prc*. that, without inv dvmg Kur*.>, e in ho.*‘.hi
des, the independence and integrity of Turkey
—which he had always said was a mam ob
jt ct of her Male*’}’* Government—would be
secured. The object was one which required,
the vigilant at’ent on of the Government, and
it roil'd or:I\ r e secured by the union ot Kng
iarni and France and. a constant and friendly
communication between them.
Mr. Cobden said, that everybody seemed to
agree that the- conduct or Russia had been
treacherous and vi lent, and to rejoice that the
occurrence had brought about a -uncere a.dance
between Kngland and France, fhe o inions
expressed by Lord John Rus-ndl w re those of
the people or Knghind. I >r he believed even
Birmingham wou : rather sut r-ort ij:s pac tic
policy than precipitate the country m a war.
S ii! there was a toei ng ot une.:.*ir.e.*s in the
country respecting Turkey: but there was a*,
the same rune a gr w r g ccn?ic io . in m
minds that the integrity and independence o!
the 'I'urklsh Kmpre, a* a maxim of policy, had
become an emp*y phrasp, and nothing jncr->
It was considered that the i’urks i.i Kurope
weie intruders, that their home was A*ia: and
that the progress of events had demonstrated
that a MahonteJan power could not be main
tained in Kurope. I he in dependence o a
country that could not maintain itself could
not be u; held, and a tact ha 1 now become
prominent, that for every l urk in Kuropean
Turkey tiiere were three Christian*. Am! «hat

feeling of the ChrMian part of the ppti’a
tion in Turkey would become an important
part of the sui-jpc'. and we should have to
aduie-' our minds to the i]i:»*si.-on hereafter,
v. iir*T we are going to do w tq Turkey. for
we must not think 11:nr we could k,ep 1 urkev
a- it is. Mr. Cobd?n ridicu ed the r.-uion of
going to war for tariff-, the iiri’ity or w6;cli
polu v experience had proved, and r.e contended
that the importance of the trade with Turkey
had been overrated, fie maintained that a- our

selves as well as the country, in d sregardmg
• > 0 taunts of thoughtless men and res»-‘ing the
cry for war, and he d d not blame them for a :
tiering to the traditional policy of maintaining
the integrity ot Turkey.
Lord Palmerston could not allow the speech
of Mr. Cobden to pass without one or two ob
servations. He had begun by ta king of main
taining the independence of Turkey, an,: en
ded with er.deavorir i to show that 1 urkev was
not worth defending. If be had stood there as
the avowed aJvoca’e of Russia he could not
have dared to pursue a course more calculated
to assist her views. He had never heard a
speech more full of contradictions. Mr. Cob
den had forgotten the principles of free trade,
of which he had been so staunch a defender.
Hid he not know that the commercial sy stem
of Russia was eminently restrictive and prohi
; bitory, while that of 1 urkey was the most li
bera! of any country with which we had^ com
mercial relations? The resources or Turkey
which were constantly improving, tended to
make her commerce every year more valuanie
! to this country. Mr. Cobden, again, was a
great advocate of non-interference, and what
was the matter which he specially recom
mended to the Government? “What shall
we do with the Turkish Empire? Mr. Cob
den regarded it as a rotten fabric, and thought
it was high time to consider what we should
do with the country when we got rid of
the Mahomedans. Hut he (Lord Palmers
ton) did not agree that the 'Turkish em
pire was in a state of decay: he held its
maintenance to be not only desirable, but worth
contending for. iurkey? so far from having
gone back within the last *>u years, had mane
more improvements in social and moral con
cerns and in religious tolerance than any
other country. So lar Irom going along with
Mr. Cobden'in that political slang which was
the fa-hion of those who wanted to parti
tion and dovour Turkey, he was convinced
that, it we only kept*cut ot it those who wish
ed to get into it, as far as the seeds ot
internal dissolution were concerned, there
were many countries :n Europe which would
not bear a very favorable comparison with it.
He truce.i Mr. Cobden’s speech would not
mislead any o(!e beyond the limits of this coun
try: that his language would not excite abroad
reelings likely to mar the etforts of her Majes
ty's Government: and that the great preponde
rance of a proper teelmg upon the subject in
the House would prove to the world what were
the real sentiments of the British Parliament
and the British nation.
Mr. Par.by Seymour said a few words ex
pressive of satisfaction at the speech ot Lord
Palmerston, and the motion was agreed to.
An Island to Kent.
A friend was suggesting to us the other day
that it would be a good idea just now to send
evervbody out of the city, and hang the city
keys up at the Belize, with the placard ‘ New
Oneans to Kent.' 1 fiat idea is ludicrous
enough, even though originating in a sad sub
jt-ct. but an adverti'cmc-nt which we happened
on yesterday in a tile of Panama papers shows
us a real, bona fi le island, way out in the great
Pacific Ocean, which its owners, having too
much reai es*ate on hand, do not know what
to no with, and accordingly put it like a house,
i or a lot, or a farm, “to rent.’’ True, the own
eis are the people ot the republic of Ecuador,
but it strikes us that it we were a people and
a republic we would not let our republic, in
the shape or a fine, big island, ai! rea"dy for a
population, go begging around the world for
an i ccupint. We'd people it ourselves: wed
setup regattas: we\l import Coolies; and, it]
Cooi..?s wouhiirt do we'd keep cool and send ■

A Correction*
“Prof. Henry St. George Tucker, of the Uni
versity ot this State, is about to publish a his
tory of the United States.”
We find the foregoing paragraph in three ot
the Richmond papers of Saturday last. We
know not who originally penned it, but we do
S know that it is full of blunders. In the first
place, Prof. Henry St. George Tucker of the
University, died several years since, after hav
j ing filled the offices of Member of Congress
i and President of the Supreme Court of Appeals
with credit anfl distinction. His Professorship
at the University was that ot the Law, which
he resigned a year or two previous to hts death.
Dr. David H. Tucker, Professor in the Rich
mond Medical College, John R. Tucker, re
cently an Elector on the Democratic Electoral
! Ticket of Virginia, Beverly Tucker, proprietor
I of the forthcoming Washington Sentinel, and
St. George Tucker, Clerk of the House of Dele
gates. are his sons. Juige Henry Sf. George
Tucker was a brother of the la’e Bev* riy Tuck -
er of William and Mary Co.lege, and bait
brother of John Randolph of Roanoke.
There is now no Professor of the University
! of Virginia bearing the name of Tucker. The
| author ol the History of the United Mates allu
ded to in the paragraph above, as about to ap
pear, is George Tucker, esq , formerly Prcfes
' sor of .Moral Philosophy in the University,
I which post he resigned in 1S45. He is already
known, as an author, bv his LPe of Jefferson
and several works on Political Economy. He
now resides ;n Philadelphia.—Petersburg £/:
Vacatiou Over.
The school boy. says the Albany Knicker
bocker, begins to* look at the calendar with
tears in his eyes. The nones of September
approach: idleness and recreation grow sweeter;
and the dread of books, and slates, and maps
increases. Mothers look forward tor the open
ing day with delight, and are engaged in fixing
up the clothes the urchins have dilapidated
since August dawned upon us. Fathers are
called on to furnish money for new shoes,
sometimes a decent hat, and so on: The
iittle “butters'* congregate on cei.ur-doors, on
stoops, and around the windows of candy
shops, and discuss the probability of the mas
ter*.-- being sick, of the school-house taking fire,
or of some untoward occurrence to delay the
opening of the school. Poor little fellows’.
"i he recollections of imperfect lessons, being
•kept in rattan, boxed ears, and pedagogical
illustrations in general, give them a horror of
instruction. How Jong the month of vacation
seemed when they commenced on it, and now
how short i: is in the retrospect! The only
consolation let: is the anticipation of Christina*
atid New Vear's. Each day will be counted
until that festive time arrives. It is dreadful
to be a i-chool boy under such circumstances.
Tru!v does the bard, the immortal bard, re
mark :
the whining school boy with, his satchel,
And shining morning lace, creeping like snail,
Unwillingly to school. ‘
Danger of Infection*
It is denied that uncleansed clothing or rags
in New Orleans arc shipped for New York.
The Sisters of Charity have for a long time
been allowed to carry away the clothe* of
patients dying in the hospitals, and they affirm
that they are well washed and purihed before
being sold.
The clothes of the victims of yellow fever
ought to be burned without exception. We
inter from the above that they are sent on here,
as was alleged by the 'Tribune the other day.
but that t s c anned mat they are first washed
*nd purified. It is difficult to believe this, for
at the present rate of pay for attention on
fever patients, the washing of their clothes
would cost generally five tunes what they are
worth. It the accounts trom New Orleans
have been true, the Sisters of ( hanty have had
no time to do ;h:* work themselves. VN e hope
our sanitary officers will keep a sharp look
out on New Odeans vesse s, and forbid the
landing of such freight —Com. Adv.
