Liniit'diy Courier, ZQlh Two Incidents in History. "During . the American revolution r a band of Irishmen were imbodied to avenge, in the country oif their adoption, tho in- juries of the eountry of their birth." They constituted the -great proportion of the Pennsylvania line. Tbey fought with enthusiastic bravery lor the cause of the colonies. .- Many ot the so called "native born" citiaens in the army were well pro vided and contented; but these gallant foreigners were not so fortunate. They were half starved and almost naked. They appealed for relief, and in vain. They felt indignant at thia treatment. They had arms in their hands, and they had reached that limit beyend which for bearanoe ceases to be a virtan. They now demanded what they before had solicited.- At this moment the intelligence of their dissatisfaction was carried to the British camp, and was received with un dissembled joy by Lord 'Howe. Here was. he thought, a glorious opportunity of crushing the embryo republic forever. He knew that the Irish character was irasci ble and impetuous. Messengers were dispatched to the suffering and protest ing Irishmen. Free pardons; gold, cloth ing, bounties. &c. were ottered in one royal carte blanche. But there was no hesitation among these humble and starv ing foreigners. The degrading offers of the English chief aroused at once their anger and their self-respect. There was not one Arnold among these hardy men. They scorned the tempters who had been sent to seduce them spurned their glit tering bribes, and gave up the British emissaries to the hangman's rope. uut there is another picture. When the Mexican war broke out on this side of the Rio Grande, nearly the entire regular army was composed, of foreigners and adopted citizens. How they fought, and fighting fell, the history of Palo Alto and Kesaca de la Palma will tell. The war progressed; - and the - Native American areas predicted that the moment the Cath olio Irish found themselves in Mexico. where Catholicity is the common and the established belief, they would go over to aanta Anna in clouds. History will say how false the prophesy proved to be. The adopted oiticens were among the first on every field during that long and brilliant struggle. Whether following his leader at Uuena Vieta, at Monterey, at Cerro Gordo, at Molina del Rev, or at Chapul- tepee, he was rarely found wanting. It is true,, there was n exception in the case of Riley and his companions, who were fearfully punished in the face of the whole army, amid tlie execrations of their- indig nant countrymen. But there were also exceptions among the Native Americana in that war. no less discreditable, and muoh more numerous. Who volunteer ed for the war more promptly and more enthusiastically, from the first to the last. than the adopted citizens, and especially the unnaturalized foreigners? Attended by their courageous priests in the' midst of the shock of war. and lying with their learts fixed upon their faith and their flag, they never murmured at the country of their choice; but rejoiced that they were able to defend her honor. When the con test ended, there was not an American general who did not everywhere applaud the gallantry and the devotion of these soldiers of Liberty; and the vain clamors of political Native Americanism were hushed before a spectacle which has paa- ed into history alike a a lesson and an example to all times. Washington Union Difficulties in Kansas. It appers from late Kaiuas papers that very serious dulieullitf Jhave arisen in the territory between the Lawrence Associa tion, and Emigration Aid Societies and the original Squatters Association. Meet ings have been called and held by both sides, and muoh abusive recrimination ndulged in. The chief bone of conten tion appearo to be that the, Lawrence As sociation is charged with attempting to monopolize the appropriation of the pub ic domain. I he Squatters are very sav age against such a course. Resolutions have passed, and speeches made by both sides, of such an inflammatory , character that they promisesahything but a peaceful settlement of the new country.' The Lexington (Mo.) Express publishes an account ol a riot between a number ot squatters in Kansas. It occurred in the town of Fremont, and the following are said to be the facts: The mob, without provocation, entirely destroyed the premises of the Rev. Mr. iummer, and, after having beat and stoned his person to suoh a degree that all reasonable , hope of his life was lost, they carried him off by force, together with hia suffering wife, who was still cling ing to his mangled, body, and conveyed them away some five miles, and set them down on the open prairie, there to perish. the mob. then returned, with yells of tri umph, to. the. residence of A. A. Ward, where they organized, and from, whence they started, which is the immediate vicin ity of the demolished premises.. They held a mock auction, and sold off what remained . of building materials, which We're bid in by. the instigators of the meb. fhey stole the potatoes, onions, chickens. &o., of the still bleeding, and supposed dead, sufferer. ' ' . ' The Gardener Case in Chancery. i This case, which has been before the circuit court since the 12th inst., was yes terday brought to a olose.

Gardiner for damages, and allowed in the award ot the commis- loners, was tatse ana umounaea, mat tne award waa obtained by ' fraud, and was null and void; and that the money paid out of the Treaury of the United States, under such cireumstauces, continued its character as the money and property of of the United states, and may be followed into the hands of Measrs Corcoran & Riggs,' who are not the true owners of the said fund. ' ' .- vThe Court then made a decree to the effect that the award 1 was obtained by George A. Gardiner by means of false awearing.' forgevy, and fraud, and was therefore null and void; that the estate is indebted to the United States in the sum of $428,750, with interest from the '1 6th of May, 1851; (hat Corcoran & Riggs should bring intocourt on the fourth 'Monday of March'nextV the! stocks and securities in their hands', amounting to $89,000, being part of the funds obtained by Gardiner under said-award, and also an admited balance in cash of 88, 737 46; and that the eause be. rfred to waiter S..

Hard times ! Hard times ! "Let me for a moment show you an other picture. Dubuque is rich I . Dubu que is fat and lazy ! Let a stranger drop in here and he would see every lace the picture of good nature and self-satisfaction. We have got enough td pay our debts without any trouble, and real estate does not fall a dollar. Mechanics are in good request, and labor is at a premium. We are a "hard money" people. We have no banks cf issue in this State, and no special charters. Every man has an equal chanoe at everything. By the stat utes, a deed need only embrace about twenty words, besides the description of the property ; and a short P. S., by a no tary public, finishes it off.

"As I said before our circulation is eolu and silver. Our merchants buy mostly for cash, and sell from $25,000 to $80,000 each per annum. Our banks issue no paper, but are banks ef discount. The farmers have splendid crops this year, and get good prices in specie, consequently we are all rich out here, and calmly wit ness your spatunodio efforts at the East.'' A Good One Bennett, of the Nw York Herald, af ter blackguarding Mr. Henry A. Wise without stint, for the last month, says the Washington Star, despatched an. individ ual of his own'corps, who happens to be a gentleman, to attend and report at the various meetings to come off under the engagements of Mr. W.to stump Virgin ia. He carried a letter ot introduction to Mr. Wise, and was accordingly accom modated with a capital seat in Phoenix Hull, Petersburg, where that gentleman delivered his first speech of the campaign. In the course ol his address, Mr. Wise, commenting with great bitterness and sar casm upon the warfare of misrepresenta tion which had been waged upon him out side of the Old Dominion, suddenly open ed upon James Gordon Bennett with a torrent of ridicule and exposure of that individual's want of personal character, auch as instantly turned the stomachs, as it were, of all present, against the alien Ogre of the American press ; and branch ing off upon his impudence -in sending, as he characterized the poor reporter, one of his "carrion birds" consigned to his courtesy. The effect was terrific. All eyes instinctively rested upon the forlorn gentleman, who had been placed in a very conspicuous position, as if but to make him the belter mark for the firing of auch a shot at him. Seeing a disposition rising in the meeting to punish Bennett's tergi versation in his person, the reporter hasti ly gathered up his papers and saved his bacon by absquatulating. He took the cars by light next morning, by way of getting out ol the reach of Virginia in dignation in the shortest possible space of time, and is said to have returned to Washington realizing that it is at least dangerous for one ambitious of occupying the position of a gentleman in society, to oonnect himself . with a party notoriously more appropriately fitted to grace the cell of a State prison, than the editorial chair of a public journal. Mexican Revolution. Our dates from Acapulco are to the 24th inst. i lie news is highly important, as contained in the following correspon dence: v As we - anticipated, a courier arrived from Gen. Alvarez head quarters at Tes pah on the 20th, with the official intelli gence that Gen. Zuloaga, with bis entire command, composed of some ot Santa Anna s select officers and troops, had, with all their troops and munitions of war, ca pitulated, or to use a patriotic expression had pronounced in favor of, and joined the command of Alvarez. By this the lib eral party in the South are reinforced with 1000 regular troops and othcers, together with '1 800 good muskets. 80 mules loads o munitions of war, and 6 field pieces; suffi ciently ample to bid defiance to any addi tional troops Santa Anna may order to the south, which exceedingly questionable, as he no doubt is fully convinced of the absurdity of another attempt to defeat Al varez and his chieltain, Gen. Comonfort, the latter whose talents and liberal senti ments and feelings towards not only his own countryman, but foreigners, eminent ly qualify him for the most elevated post tiou within the gift of the Mexicans; a bet ter selection could not be.maae, tor ne a-. lone appears to be the man who could harmonixe the 'North and South, 'and pre vent this republic from crumbling into an insignificant independent State. Panama Herald. r Congressional. Washington, Feb.' 24. - Senate The Chair laid before the Sen ate a message from the President, accom panied by a letter from the Minister from Peru, respecting the Laboe Islands con troversy. x The Diplomatic and Consular Bill was read. Mr. Mason said the biff reduces the dif ferent grades to one ; it abolishes Chargea and Ministers resident ; takes away the outfit; gives Ministers a fixed salary, not to commence until services begin, and to cease when the duties of the office termin ate; it prevents double pay for the same services, and at the same time prevents apy foreign Minister from being absent from his post more than ten days without leave, from the President of the United States ; and if more than that time, either with or without leave, his salary ceases. Although the salaries wilhbe raised on the face of the bill, the expenses of each mis sion will be rednced, because no outfit, no infil, no overlapping on salaries, and no gratuities to subordinate officers of the missions, are allowed as heretofore. After further discussion, the bill was laid aside. House. The House acted on the a mendments to the Civil and Diplomatic Appropriation Bill, and concurred in all reported from the Committee of the Whole, except that appropriating $50,000 for hos pital and medical attendance of Ameri can seaman at or near Havana.

The Havana Presna of the 14th says that on the previous morning an English war steamer had left the port of Havana, with several companies and troops for the island on board perhaps it says, to gar rison some place in the interior: The steamer, says the paper, 'bore at her masthead, unfurled to the wind, and proudly and affectionately entwining each other, tne banners ot Spam and England a union highly significant of the aetual circumstances. A few minutes afterwards one of the large English ships-ef-war,. which have beeu'lynlg at anchor in the port, sailed but with the.Spanish and En glish Hags also flying in union at her mast head. The war steamer Gen. Laez, next sailed out, decorated in the same signifi cant style. This delightful spectacle was witnessed from the wharves by an enthu siastic ' multitude.

I move to ad mit ladies to the floor of the Senate, to witness the presentation of Gen. Jackson's sword. "Agreed," from all tides of the Senate. Whereupon the ladies crowded in till the gallery was full of them. The Naval Reform bill waa under dis cussion, when, the debate was suspended to allow the presentation of the sword worn by Gen. Jackson at the battle of New Or leans. The sword was placed on the Clerk's desk. Mr. Case rose, and raising the sword, presented it to the Senate. In doing so, he took the opportunity to pay a tribute to the memory of Jackson. ' He briefly, pointedly and feelingly alluded to the presentation of the sword of Wash ington; and in passing, spoke ol the offer ing of the cane of Franklin, which was at the same time deposited by the side of the sword of his, great co-laborer in the cause of human rights. His allusions to Washington and Franklin were very hap py and appropriate. He did not regard these ceremonies as empty and unmeaning. The first was the memorial of the first and greatest of our chief magistrates; and these and other memorials of his successor in the admin istration of the Government, and second only to him in the gratitude and affec tions of the American people, will lie side by side, tokens of patriotic devotion ; and in ages shut out from our vision by the future, when remote generations hear of our heritage of freedom, shall gace up on these testimonials of victories time worn but time-honored they will be car ried back by the association to' these he roes of our early story, and will find their love of country strengthened and their pride in her institutions and their confi dence in her fate and fortunes increased. Mr. Bell followed in a speech highly eu oiristic of the hero of the battle of New Orleans. .He spoke at-muoh length and very eloquently. At the conclusion of his speech, Mr. Bell introduced a joint resolution, accept ing the sword, and returning the thanks ol Congress to the family of the late .Gene ral Armstrong. Read three times by u nanimous consent, and passed. Mr. Gwin offered a resolution that the speeches of Messrs.

Much dis order for some time prevailed, the hall be ing densely crowded. . ' On motion of Mj Smith, of Tennessee, thejresolution of the Senate, accepting the sword in behalf of the nation, waa taken up. Mr. S. then addressed the House at some length, eulogizing the character and military skill of Gen.

Benton then took -the floor, and spoke at maoh length of Jackson's life and personal history, narrating minutely the circumstances of many of his battles, and in some of which Mr. Benton was his aid.

Mr." Fessenden, from the committee on printing, reported adversely to printing Professor, Eitpjs fourth me Sir Charles Nafikr. -The London Times has a scorching article upon 'Sir ('buries Napier's recent speech at the Lord Mayor's Banquet, in which he endeavored to throw the responsibility of his failure udoii the Ministry. The Times eays, in commenting upon the speech: 'The disappointment, the puzzle of the Beoule. is this: Why this immense fleet! Why these megnificieut stermers, so co lossal yet so manageable? Why shipi twice as big as Nelson's biggest, with twice- as much weight of metal? Why Sir Charles Napier's announcements? ";Why the boastful and bullying tone of that din ner at the reform club? Why that osten tatious parade up and down the Baltic with, every now and then, a repetition ol the Portsmouth Review? " Why that "war to the knife with Russia"which Sir Uharles on returning home.told his gapping friends in Marvlebone was the first article in his political creed? Why all this swagger, nothing was to be done? If that is all, it we can only break our teeth if ve try them on the fortifications to the Bailie surely that oan be proved at less cost than all this bluster, which is very costly indeed to the national credit. Sir Qharles seems to have found out no more than everybody knew. " ' '. "We all knew that Cronstadt was a very formidable place.that it was surrounded by miles of shallow water, and that the chan nel was narrow, circuitous ditncult to be traced, and well enfiladed by numerous batteries. We complain that Sir. Charles left us at the end of the year just as we were at the beginning, neither stronger nor wiser. His speech on Thursday is of much the same unprogressive character. What are we the, wiser for it? These Ad mirals seem to think that the final purpose of a fleet is to look terrible, to manoeuver, to communicate by signals, to rendezvous now and then at some good anchorage or convenient port, to challenge with impu; nity, to command the seas within sight, and to return home safe and sound," hav ing done nothing."
