The New York Courier and Enquirer learns that Lord Clarendon referred to South, aud not to Horth America, when ho spoke of the per fect anion of sentiment and design that existed be tween Franco and England, in respect to all ques tions on this continent, The Courier and Enquirer learns that Lord Clarendon "was pained" to hear that his language had been interpreted in thiscoun try so as to excite apprehension, and that by an ar rangement made with Mr. Buchanan, the noble Lord wrote a disclaimer of the designs imputed to him by Gen. Gass, which document is now Ieu in the State Department at Waahington. We do not see that this explanaUon helps the ..tlar much. A combination between Ennd and Franco toxegulate, or interfere ,, the , aJLmsof South America can neverbe quietly submitted toby ibis government. It h - violation of the Monroe ,w.3n- as much so, indeed in principle, as if the combination was designed to regulate tho affairs of North America. Whenever we acquiesce in such interfe'renco in the affairs of the government of South America, we permit the violation of the great doctrine vliirli we have so long considered neces sary to the peace and safety of our own. "We hope our government will require, through its minister at London, a more satisfactory explanation of the designs of the coalition.

HUNTER, OF VA. Nebraska Bill Squatter Sovereignty-. The fi.llowimr extracts from the argument of Mr. IIux- "tek, of Va., on the Nebraska bill, touching the "Squatter Sovereignty" feature, will be read with interest. He no doubt (says the Memphis Whig) places the subject in tho light in which it is regard ed by all the Southern men in Congress who are iunuortintr the bill: "But in my opinion tho government of these Territories ought to be administered with the double object of securing the rights of the States as thoc of the people of the Territories, and to these last should be given all the rights of self-government which are consistent with the limitation that thy lliall not interfere with the equal rights of the 8tat or violate tho provisions of the Constitu fmn ' Wiih thoso limitations all the power that could possibly be given to the peoplo of the Terri tory ought to be given them. All that portion of the power which is to be exercised with a view to their inteiests ought to be exercised as they wish it. That, in my opinion, is the true principle, know we have most high, distinguished and respectable authority lor the opinion that the peo ple of the territories have a sort of neutral right to exercise all power within those Territories. It is Jiot my purpose to raie an issue upon that ques tion. 1 do not mean to argue it. I do wish to raie an issue with the friends of this bill, with those whom I am assiatiug, and who are assisting me, to ass this measure. Nor will I do it unless it .'hould be absolutely-necessary, which is not now the ease; fur, happily, tho bill is so framed that it cau be maintained, not only by those who enter tain such opinions as I have referred to, but by tho-o who entertain oninions like my own. ' The bill provides that the Legislatures of these Territories shall have power to legislate over all n-htlul subjects of legislation, consistently with the Constitution. And if they should assume pow ers which are thought to bo inconsistent with the Constitution, the courts will decide that question whenever it may bo raised. There is a difference of opinion amongst the .friends of this measure as to the extent of the limits which the Constitution imposes upon the Territorial Legislatures. This bill proposes to leave these differences to the decision !.r the courts. To that tribunal 1 am willing to leave this decision, as it was once before proposed to be left by the celebrated compromise of the Senator from Delaware Mr. Clayton-a measure which, according to my understanding, was the best compromise which was offered upon this subject of blavery. I say, then, that I am willing to leave this point, upon which the friends of the bill are at difference, to the decision of the courts. J "I pa, then, from that branch of the subject. I did not desire to allude to it, and would not have done so except to save my own consistency." MAIL ROBBER ARRESTED. Mouth or Sandy, Tens., April 17, 1S51. Col. S. R. Anderson -.Dear Sir: lam pleased to be able to communicate the arrest of the rascal who has been committing depredations on our mail for the past eight months. John Mizell, of Stewart couuty, was arrested on last Wednesday, and tried and committed on Friday by Esquires Daniel and Wafeord to await his trial before the next United Stales Court at Nashville. Tho evidence elicited was notour, butof the strongest circumstan tial character. A large crowd was in attendance, and the feeling was universal of his being guilty . He boarded at Mr. Elijah Dawson's, who is the P. XI". at Standing Rock, (a very clever, honest man,) nnd being on good terras with the family, was per mitted to handle the mail, and the opinion is that he abstracted packages while it was opening. Col. Barclay Martin was present at the trial, and act rd for the prosecution, and deserves much credit for his .eal and ability. Mr. Dcnlap, of Dover, acted for the accused, and acquitted himself handsomely. ! ,1 hope and believe our mail will now go unmolest ed. Truly, yours, JAMES T. EDMUNDS, F. M. 5?" The Columbia correspondent of the Cincin nati Gazette relates tho following outrage, commit ted by a warden in the Ohio Penitentiary on a con vict : Without a particle of evidence upon the inere cst suspicion this deputy warden, Watson, order ed this negro prisoner to bo thrown into a dun geon, his bed and every rag of bed clothes taken from'him; and for airmen days and nightshe was kept confined, without the light of day, with the damp hard ground for his bed. At three separate time? he was brought out by Watson, stripped to his skin and whipt with a cat til! his back was cut to pieces and the blood made totiowiromme wounus. In this condition he was put back into his dark, damp, cold cell, without a bed or a particle of bed clothe"', to pass three days and nights as bet he could. At the end of that time ho was again taken out. whim as before, and this repeated for 'We times, and when last put back he was told that he would be kept confined and whipt every day till lUe orpiration of his sentence, if he did not crtuf.-ss. Confess what ? That he had stolen some $:!00 from tins WaUon ! This cruelty was inflict ed to ejtart cunjnsiun from bun. Such a deed has been perpetrated in the Capital of Ohio, in the year ISol. It la monstrous. The warden, Mr. l)mimo.k, was sick a part of the time, but he knew what was goi,,,. on je de clined to order bed and bedding to his cell when requested to do so by Mr. Lenox, one of thc direc tors. Though probably Hot a wicked man, .Mr. Dimmock is weak, and Watson has controlled hmi and done as he pleased. Taper for Newspapers made of Straw. The paper which the Philadelphia Ledger is now using is thc result of experiments in the use of straw, as the principal material of which the paper is coin posed. This paper is made by Fcinour & Nixon, at their paper-mills in Manayunk. It is made by what is called Mcllier's process, which has been re cently patented, and by which it is claimed that paper for printing can be made from almost any vegetable fibrous substance. One of the difficul ties with straw paper heretofore has been to mako it white enough for printing purposes. This is now done by a process of bleaching of which Mr. Mel Jier is tho patentee.

J Mr Dear Sir: I have had the eodtWoriune to meet here our friend Mr. Babbitt, the Secretary of -ftcilliuiy, 1W1U 13 UU 1113 Wy to ll ujuiujwu, m charge ol the mail and other vervinterestingue- spatches, the importance of which is urging him forward with extreme rapidity. He passes directly on thismornintr. and I have barelv a few moments to give you intelligence'of our safe arrival and of our eeneral cood health and reasonable success! n the obiect of our expedition. This winter has happened to be one of extreme and unusual cold. Here, the citizens inform me, it lias been altogether the severest since tno setue ment of thevalley. Consequently, so farasjMie snows are concerned, the mam condition ot our ex ploration has been fulfilled. We entered the moun tain regions on the Huerfano river on the 3d 0f Deafcayeeing the same officer their alone stretched on cember. and issued from it here on tho month, arriving here Yesterday afternoon. We went through the Cochatope Pas3 on the 14th De cember, with four inchr not Jeet, take notice, but inches of snow oAtuo levoqpniong the pines and in the shade on the summit of the1 Pass. This decides what you consider the great ques tion, and fulfills the leading condition of my ex plorationsj and therefore I go no further into de tails in this letter. I congratulate you on this verification of your judgment, and the good prospect it holds out of fin al success in carrying the road by this central line. Nature has been bountiful to this region, in accu mulating here,-within a few miles of where l am writing, vast deposites of iron, and coal, and tim ber, all of the most excellent quality; and a great and powerful interior State will spring up immedi ately in the steps of the Congressional action, which should decide to carry the road through this region. In making my expedition to this point I save near ly a parallel of latitude, shortening the usui.1 dis tance from Green river to this point, by over a hundred miles. In crossing to tho Sierra Nevada I shall go direct by an unexplored route, aiming to strike directly the Tejon Passes; at the head of the San Joaquin valley, through which in 1850 I drove from two to three thousand head of cattle that I delivered to the Indian Commissionerp.I shall make what speed I possibly can, going light, and aban doning the more elaborated survey of my previous line, to gain speed. Until within about a hundred miles of this place we had daguerrcotyped the country over which we passed, but were forced to abandon all our heavy baggage to save the men, and I shall not stop to send back for it The Delawares ail came in sound, but the whites of my party were all exhausted and broken up, and more or less frost-bitten. I lost one, Mr. Fuller, of St. Louis, Missouri, who died on entering this valley. He died like a man, on horse back, in his saddle, and will be buried like a soldier on the spot where he felL I hope soon to see you in Washington. Mr. Babbitt expects to see you before the end of March. Among other documents which he carried with him are the maps and report of Captain Gunnison's par ty. Sincerely and affectionately, JOHN C. FREMONT. Col. Benton, Washington. P. S. -This is the Little Salt Lake settlement, and was commenced three years since. Popula tion now four hundred, and oue detth by sickness since the settlement was made. We have been most hospitably received. Mr. Babbitt has been particularly kind, and has rendered me very valua ble assistance. Vallerof the I'ara wan, about GO miles east of the mea dows of Santa Cruz, between 37 and 33 degrena of north latitude, and between 113 and 114 degrees of west longi tude; elevation above the sea about 5,w0 feet From the Council Blufli Bugfe. NEBRASKA AS IT IS, AND WILL BE. There is no country, nor portion of country up on this continent that has created in so short a time, so much tilk, interest, and newspaper war; and for what good reason no one can say, unless it is a fear that the people will not be capable of self-government The bill has passed the Senate with a pop ular majority, and there is no doubt but it will soon receive sanction of the House, and settle forever, by this precedent, this vexed question, and let the people make laws to suit themselves. Should this be otherwise determined and Nebras ka does not receive the assistance"and protection of the General Government, the country will never theless be settled and that speedily. If undreds are awaiting the news that the Indian title is extin guished, and an hour after the river district will be swarming. Already many have taken over mate rials for building; have staked out their claims, and are promised to stick together through thick and thin, and assist each other in the pretection of their several claims. No families have removed to the Territory, neith er have they a right to do so, until the Indians have relinquished their claim and title to these lands. The first county north of the Platte, and west of the Missouri river, and east of the Horn, will be come the most populous county in Nebraska. This is considerably well timbered, .has lime quar ries, stone coal, and iron ore; and is an excellent, dry, rolling, fertile region. The embryo city, op posite this placo, will be the capital for the present, of the Territory, without a doubt, and will eventu ually be second to none in the West but this city. Next in importance will bo the cities twelve miles each way north and south of ns, Bellview and Winter Quarters; making threo very important river cities in one county. Besides the ordinary business importance of this new frontier river coun ty in Nebraska, the great Pacific Railroad is topas3 through and have there (probably at Omaha city, or near) a great resting house, before skimming the broad plains and leaping thc Rocky Mountains. The great place in embryo, Omaha city, is loca ted immediately east of this city on the Nebraska side, aud about three miles distant, Bellview, the old missionary and trading stations is twelvo miles below, but north of the Plattee river and has a beautiful and commanding view. Winter Quarters is twelve mile3 above, and is the site of the winter quarters of the first Mormon emigrating camp which is also most beautifjlly situated. In fact we do not know of three more channingor delighlf il town sites ou the Missouri river thau these. We would make a slight correction of an article recently pub lished in the Keokuk Disjialth upon that subject His informant was in error in regard to the dis tance of country back that was well timbered and a good agricultural county-. There is much worthless land, and that too des titute of timber, within 150 or 200 miles west of the Missouri river, and although there is much -.good land aud a considerable of timber, we would not have the people find themselves deceived in apy way by our neglect, or assent. There is no doublvthat many win oe disappointed ana dissatis fied with the country, as it has by very many been overrated.s It is not a positive paradise; there may be cold, heat, and many other inconveniences to offend. The elimate and soil are both very similar to Iowa, except-when you get far back from tho streams, there you And sand and barrens. Many who go their to settle will finally find homes in this State,r cross tho Rocky .Moun tains. Tho principal reason of this is a general scarcity of timber throughout these territorities; this in time will be overcome by the use of -coal, hedging, and the growth of young timber, ahd every foot of these rich valleys will bud and blossom as the rose, and the iron horse with a hissingsnort bound through the defiles, on its way to or returning from the Pacific laden with the silks, cashmereand pre cious things from China, Japan and the Indies.

From all parts of the house this supernatural intruder could be seen; but but people differed as to its appearance, some say ing it was a fair man, others dark; some maintaing that he was Old, andothers thathe was young. It should be mentioned, that there was some, guilty mystery hangingover theconnectioabetwecn these two young people; and as? at last, no one ventured to visit their box, they disappeared from Berlin., This anecdote Lord Wriothesley Russell brought with him from abroad. Scott (who evidently did not like the circumstances being left unexplained) proceeded to tell a story of Mrs. Hook, the wife of Dr. Hook, who wrote the Roman History; -"it be" ing wa3 well," he said "to have some real person to fit one's story on." Mrs. Hook becoming ac quainted and intimate with a foreign lady, a widow at Bath; their resolving to live together on their re turn to London. Mrs. Hook on coming down stairs one day at this lady's lodging meeting a foreign officer on the stairs, saying to her friend next .day, "You had a visiter yesterday?" the other answer ing -No; she hail seen no one since Mrs. Hook left her."

In a few weeks afterwards, there arrived an order in England to have this foreign lady arrested on charge of murdering her husband! Novel Consignment -Cats.

His medical attendants tor a tull week alter he, re ceived the wound entertained hopes that a natural ly strong constitution and the coolness of the weather which was calculated to retard and allay inflammation, would eventuate in their patient's recovery.

The London Diogenes denominates the dispute between Hobbs and his opponents a case of 'lock jaw. It is astonishing how 'toddy' promotes indepen dence.

The Washington correspondent of the Now York Herald, in a long homily on the conduct of ladies in thecapital, among-other things, says: Never, or very rarely, offer to carry a lady's shawl or a parasol, or put your hand on her shoul der or round her waist (as is so often done) in as sisting her out of the carnage, ,or into her seat. To a delicate woman all such clapping and clawing 13 the most insufferable rudeness. Tho proper way when you alight, is to offer your left arm as a sup port for a lady's right hand, and to hold your right hand in readiness, should the exigencies of skirts, etc., permit her taking it with her left. In ascend ing a staircase, keep side by side with the lady, but do not be ostentatious in otrenng your arm, lest in the attempt to take it she neglects tho management ot her skirts, steps on her dress, and either tails or teara it out at the waist If you attend two ladies, place the one next you who is entitled, either by rank or preference, to the post of honor but on no account whatever walk between them. A man witti a lady on each arm is a laughable paraphrase of a donkey laden with two panniers. Observe a different rule, how ever, m taking your places in a concert-room. The gentleman in thoso should be preceded and followed by a lady. At a table, a gentleman and lady who have a gueEt (wo speak now of the hotel table, lor we are really getting to know scarcely any other in this country,) always place him or her between. If the guests are also two, then place your lady guest between your wite and yourselt, while the gentleman takes the other end of the line, leaving the ladies in the middle. The logic as well as the convenience of all these little arrangements, will be suggested by a single thought and how much awkwardness and consequent mortification and annoyance, would be avoided by a carelul ob servance of these simple rules. CURIOSITV OF MARRIED MEN. 'The Budget says that a lady lost the use of her tongue for near a week, the other day, from eating tou many tomatoes. The prices of this mdispen sable vegitable will no doubt rise in consequence.' No it won't! There is nothing in this world. with one exception, that gentlemen love bo well as to hear women talk to each other. 1 ou are sitting tete-a-tete with Moses at your domestic fire side. A lady Inend comes m; she is bright, witty and agreeable. 1 ou have a tremendous budget ot fern inine 'bon Tnots,' and good things to share with each other. The question is how to get rid of Moses. You hint that there is a great political meeting at Tammany Hall on which occasion Cass, or whoever is god of your husband's political idola try, is going to speak. He don't stir a peg. Then you adroitly raise the window curtain, and speak of the beauty of thc night, and how the gentle men are out with cigars in their mouths. It don't end in smoke! Then you ask him 'if he has car ried the morning's papers over to his mother?' He is deaf as a 'post' Finally, in despair, you get in to the remotest corner of the room, and commence operations, leaving Moses to his corner and his book for fear of distuibing (?) him. Kitty tells you a most excrutiating story and you tell her another; and you Iuigh till the tears start. Well, now, you just creep slyly around Mosea' chair, and take a peep at him. St Cecelial if that book is not upside down, and his mouth stretched from ear to ear! Ho has swallowed every word with the avidity of a cat over her first mouse ban quet; and yet if you did not face him up with that book upside down, he would persist ho had been reading the funniest book alive! And so he has, but it was not bound in 'calf or '.sheep-skin.' Fanny Fern. FEMALE PHYSICIANS. Tho Boston Journal strongly advocates the intro duction of females into the ranks of the medical profession. We consider the needle a much more appropriate weapon in the hands of a woman than the scalpel or bistoury. Exchange, Do you? Just suppose yourself a forlorn sick bachelor, in the upper story of some noisy boarding, house, whose inmates don't care a pinch of snuff whether you conclude to dio or get well.

Fanny Fern. SuNsniNE in the Sanctum. Tho editor of the Detroit Advertiser enjoys daily the company of two beautiful canary birds, which are allowed the liber ty of his sanctum. All day long, he says, the little twittering fellows are skimming around his head and ears as joyfully as if there was no labor in this life, no wearied and troubled souls, and all were gay and happy as themselves. When one feels mischievous ho perches himself on the desk in front of the aiious writer, and turning his head from side to side, peeps at him first with one bright roguish eye, and then with tho other, as much as to say ' Come, old fellow, get up and be merryl" Occasionally, for the purpose of attracting attention, the canaries tip over a wafer box, or rattle the steel pens. They have never attempted composition yet, although on one occasion a page of the editor's manuscript was mistaken for the tracks of their inky feet. "POTATOES.
