THE "KNOW NOTHINGS." Our readers have seen announcements that the - whigs and know nothings have carried the cities of Philadelphia, Washington and Boston, in tUe char ter elections; and they may be curious to know what sort of aparty the "know nothing" party is. It is a secret political organization, having for its ba sis the old "Native American" creed. It proclaims war against Catholics and foreigners. Its members are sworn to vote the ticket agreed upon by the head men of tho organization. That its contrivers, under a ludicrous title, possess the cunning of tra ding politicians, in discarding a hackneyed name and a single principle or union, is evident. The designation of Native Americanism is worn out, and that there would be, to borrow the current phrase, a greater breadth of platform, if they ad dressed themselves f a variety of opinions or par ty "onvictions, is equally evident. Hence no doubt their success in making their initial movements in Washington and Philadelphia. The whigs of Philadelphia and Washington a dopted the "know nothing" ticket, the candidates being all whigs. This is not the first time an al- liance with Native Americanism has been entered intoby that party. We were in hopes, after all the whig sympathy for the Catholics of New Hamp shire in the last Presidential canvass, and after Gen. Scott's praise of the "sweet Irish brogue" and "the German accent," that whiggery would repudiate such alliances. But drowning men will catch at straws, and whiggery now seems to be but a weak f ister of abolitionism and Native Americanism. A secret political organization like this of the "Know Nothings" is the greatest dinger to which a republic can be subjected, and it is the duty of all good citizens to discourage it. Mil. BELL'S SPEECH. We have glanced over the speech of Mr. Bell, as published in the Itinner, without finding a pledge to resign, if his course on the Nebraska bill is not approved by the people of Tennessee. Sir. Bell was certainly reported as making such a pledge in the first sketches of his speech. The Banner, which seems to be intimately acquainted with the motives which govern Mr. Bell's course, can probabjv ex plain the omission in question. Has Mr. Bell come to theconclusion that it would be dangerous to trust his fate with the people? Please enlighten us. Ban ner. TENNESSEE AND VIRGINIA RAILROAD. On Saturday last, we understand, the rails were laid upon our road to New River, and the cars were to be there on Thursday last, freighted with a multitude of humanity from Lynchburg to eat cat fish and enjoy the ride through the Alleghanies. The distaucc now travelled by the cars on thi3 road is 100 miles a greater distance, we are told, than has been accomplished in the same length of time upon any road in the union, where mountains had to be topped or tunneled. And this is not all it is said to be one of the smoothest and most substan tial roads in the country, and sends the traveler re joicing on his way at the rate of 30 miles per hour. The balance ot the road to the State line about 105 miles will bo entirely graded, and perhaps ironed, in another twelve-month. All the heavier woik is done, and that which is to do, is progress ing with unusual rapidity. We understand that there are relief forces laying the iron, and that the work goes on day and night. Abingdon irginian, June 3. The Lynchburg Virginian, speaking of this road. savs: "The whole work is of the heaviest char acter, particularly the first five miles from town and the thirteen in which the ascent of the Alle ghany is accomplished. There are parts of this latter section which cost $80,000 per mile. The D&ssago,1,ie Dine nidge was, at one time, luuKcd up m as something of a bug-bear. The work, it is true, was heavy, but the traveler is not sensible, by dimunition of speed orany other circumstance?, that he is overcoming the barrier which once made almo3t dUtinH political and social communities in hastern and estern lrgima. The tunnel near Lynchburg is 550 feet in length. Besides thi: there are three others in the eastern slope of the Alleghany, the shortest 200 feet, and the longest 750. The route from Lynchburg to the Tennessee line measures two hundred and four miles. The CiLl -al Depot, as its name imports, is about half way the distance. Here, very extensive freight and engine houses, as well as an extensive ma chine shop, are under construction. A couple of miles beyond, the road crosses New River one of the most beautiful streams we ever saw by a no ble bridge of six spans and seven hundred and thir ty feet in length. Whilst individual miles have cost immense sums, we are glad to say the whole road, when completed, and fully stocked with lo comotives and cars sufficient for a very large bust ties', will not exceed the originally estimated ave rage cost of 25,000 per mile. "The creat difficulties are overcome. The route beyond New Kivor is comparatively favorable. The work will now advance rapidly to completion, The cars will reach Newborn by the first of July, and Wytheville, 130 miles from Lynchburg, during the month of September. All the heavy work is done as far as Abingdon, and nothing will prevent the laying of iron at the regular rates of progres sion. There is no reason to doubt that, by the middle of Uie autumn of next year, the cars will reach the Tennessee line. SOUTHERN RAILROADS. The following, from the last number of the Chat tanooga Gazelle, shows an astonishing increase of business on southern railroads. Our anticipations of a till larger future increase equal those of the Gazette: Freights ov the State Road Since the con nection of the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad with the Western and Atlantic road at this place, the shipments over the latter road have been very largely increased, and ?eem to be increasing con tinually, notwithstanding the unfavorable season of the year. In a conversation last week with tho neutlemanly agent of the State road, CoL Welch, he informed us that it was no uncommon thing for the Nashville trains to bring up fifteen or twenty ears loaded every day, and instead of diminishing in amount, it was increasing. At that time, he had ready to fend oil' forty cars loaded with freight, and enough in the depot to load twenty or thirty more I For the season of the year this is not only unprecedented but unexpected. But this heavy business is only the beginning. Middle Tennessee will soon send the greater por tion of her abundant surplus products and manu factures th:s way. For a time, those who have leen shinning on other routes, and dealing in other cities, will have to continue until they get rid of tt-?ocmtioit3 and lorm new ones. But the time will b bi ief.

The English division of the corps of light infantry at Scutari received marching orders on the 14th. It is thought the route i3 for Varna. The Vienna Lloyd of May 20th says: " Omar Pacha has taken up a position before Sclimula, with his troops there concentrated; this is a sign that it is in this district where he intends fighting the first grand pitched battle with the Russians." It 13 announced that Omar Pasha has sent a re port to Constantinople, in which he says that he may be compelled to sacrifice Silistria if the sub sidiary allied troops are not at the Balkon by the end of May at the latest The BeUigcrant Armies on the Damibe. -On the extreme right, along the left bank of the Aluta, is stationed the Russian corps of army coming from Pojana and the neighborhood of Kalafat, which has been reinforced by a second corps, lately ar rived from Moldovia. The reserve is at Pilesti, an important town of Great Wallachia, 20 leagues to die northwest of Bucharest The right of the Russians communicates with the centre through Giurgevo, where a third corps is encamped. The centre extends from Giurgevo, opposite to Ruts chuck, to Xalasasch and Ras30va, along the left bank of the Danube, having its reserve at Bucha rest, thirteen leagues from the river. The left wing begins at Rassavo, and occupies the Odessa, with the troops of Osten Sacken. ItSj.reserve occupies Matschin and its vicinity. The lino of operations of the Russian army stretches over a distance of at least fifty leagues, from the Aluta to the mouths of the Danube. Its real force may be calculated at between 150,000 and 180,000 men. The second reserve are still on the banks of the Dnieper, their effective force be ing unknown. The Turks have likewise effected a movement of concentration since their adversaries abandoned the environs of Kalafat The centre faces that of the Russian army, be tween Nicopolis and Silistria, occupying the forti fied points of Lutschuk, Turtukai, and Silistria, the garrisons of which have been lately re-inforced trom Schumla, by order of Omar Pasha. The re serve of the centre is stationed at Schumla. The right wing lines Trajan's Wall, with its reserve at Bazardjick and Varna. The Turkish force on those different points may be estimated at from 120,000 to 130,000 combatants, including the garrisons of tne strong places. Tne troops ot the second line are concentrated round Adrianople, and the 50,000 or C0,000 English and French already arrived at Gallipoli, Scutari, and Constantinople form the third line. Such are tho forces of the two belligeraut, powers opposed to each other in Europe. The Black Sea. The Descartes left the Sebasto pol station on the 11th. The combined fleets are still cruising off that port There was so intense a fog that the flair ships were continually firing truns to inform the rest of the squadron of tfieir position from time to time. It i3 stated that the Russians have evacuated all their positions on the Circassian coast from Batoum to Anapa, an extent of 2000 leagues. They burnt all their own fortresses and retired to Kutaii in the interior. Tho Circassians came down from the mountains and took possession of all the posts, making pris oners of 1,500 men, whom they surprised at Suk kum Xalah. The Circassians proclaimed a provi sional government under the presidency of a brother-in-law of SchamyL Up to the present, the number of Russian mer chantmen taken by the Black Sea fleets amounts to twenty. A great many of them are colliers. Plan of Attack on Sebaslopol. The Paris cor respondent of the London Times says that a corpt iTarmee, amounting to 30,000 men at least, will be landed in Crimea, while the fleet will attack Sebas topol and destroy it, but that no occupation of it will follow. The plan of operation is no doubt kept very secret from all but those who are to con duct the execution of it I mentioned yesterday that Admiral Hamelin had requested that troops for landing should be at once lorwarded, and one part of a telegraphic dispatch states that arrange ments are making at Constantinople for embarking the whole English army in 24 hours. Aw English Exploit. Libac, May 18, 1854. Our town has been the theatre of a dreadful scene. At about 10 o'clock, the steamers Amphion and Conflict laid anchor in our roads, and at half past eleven a bearer of a flag of truce came with his boat on shore with a letter from the captain of the Amphion, A. C. Key, demanding that all Russian vessels in the harbor should be delivered up at once, in which case no shot should be fired, but if the contrary, the town had to submit to the consequences. The answer was that we had no power to deliver up the vessels in the time prescribed; that the moH of them were lying in a swampy pond; that our town was in an indefensive state; that we had no military, and that the bearer of the flag of truce could convince himself of the fact It wa3 therefore hoped by the inhrhitants that no hostilities against tho town and inhabitants would be adopted till the vessels could be got out, and that it was expected that her Britannic Majes ty's representatives would only undertake what was consistent with humanity and power. And what do you think was the result? About three quarters of an hour afterward nine boats armed with guns and about 150 men, all strongly armed with guns, pistols, and swords, came into the harbor, went through the bridge, jumped on the vessels, cut down anchors and chains, brought eight vessels out of the harbor, and put to sea with them in the morning, between 4 and 0 o'clock, going southward, very like to Memel, saying they would come back to-day and fetch away what was left ui these eight vessels three had arrived at Me mel, and, it was thought, would be sold by auction. The Baltic We have had a report that the fortress of Gustaffsvoern, situated at the southwest extremity of the northern coast of the Gulf of Finland, has been captured by Sir Charles Napier, who has taken 1,500 prisoners. No positive con firmation of this news had reached England. The fortress is on the Island of Hango. The Austko -Prussian Treat-. The London Daily News of the 27th thus comments upon the Austro-Prussian treaty: Notwithstanding the disposition in Paris to make the best of a bad bargain, and represent the Austro Prussian treaty in the most favorable light, it is ap parent from that document that no assistance, at least no honest, efficient assistance is to be expected from the two great powers of Central Europe. Tlie main we might almost say the only oljectofthe offensive and defensive alliance concluded between Austria and Prussia, is reciprocally to rmaranfpo to each other the possession of their non-German provinces. 1 he proviso bearing upon the struggle now in i progress oetween Kussia on the one hand, and Turkey with the Western Powers on the other, is strictly subordinated to the creat object of keeninc in subjection the Polish, Hungarian, and Italian de pendencies of Prussia and Austria; and this proviso is moreover hampered with so manv Qualifications and explanations that tho chances of ever seeing it acted upon are of the slenderest iiie march of Russian aggression the danger with which it threatens the independence of Euro pean nationalities are mere trifles in the estima tion of the Austrian and Prussian courts, who are exclusively occupied with the consideration how their hold upon their non-German acquisitions is likely to be affected by these broils. V I I- 1 i riauieauu x.ugianu can in no case count upon their co-operation, font will require to be purchas ed by a guarantee from the Western powers to as sist actively in maintaining Austria and Prussia in tne possession of their non-German territories a guarantee which could only be given in utter con tempt and disregard of principle, to assert which the Western powers have armed in the cause of Turkey. Neutrality is all that France and England have to look for at the hands of Austria and Prussia, a hollow and insincere neutrality. The two creat powers oi ucntrai Europe are still ooviously search ing for the means of averting too great a humilia tion from itussia. The task of check-mating the Russian government in its unscrupulously ambi tious game must be completed, as it has been be gun, by France and England. France.

The political excitement be tween the opposing factions of tho democratic par ty was kept up till the last It is said that every preparation had been made to bring up and carry through the Senatorial election on the 12th, but that at the last hour one of the new converts lost heart and backed out The city of Stockton went whig by 100 majority at the charter election held on the 1st Mr. Buffington was elected mayor. The Legislature has adopted acts to incorporate a State Agricultural Society, and to appropriate 5,000 a year for four years, for premiums; to pre vent religious incorporations from holding property, of which the yearly rent shall exceed $10,000; to request Congress to lay a capitation tax on Chinese immigration; to grant 5,000 to Capt Harry Love, whose rangers killed Joaquin last summer. The Governor states in a message to the Legis lature, that the public lands appropriated to educa tional purposes in California, amount to more than seven and a half millions of acres. On the 3d, Gen. John Sharp was shot and in stantly killed by some squatters whom -he ordered to quit cutting wood upon his ranch. A rumor ot the discovery of rick diggings in tho coast range, south of Mount Diablo and forty or fif ty miles south of this city, has caused a good deal of excitement in Santa Clara and Alameda counties, and numbere of adventurers have lelt this city to examine the new mines. It is reported that rich diggings have been dis covered high up on the south fork of Tuolume riv er, and near French gulsh. On the 2d inst, a lump of gold weighing 30 lbs., 3J ozs.; was found at Valecito, in Calaveras county, a number of other smaller lumps were found at the same time and place. Surrender of Walker and his Party. The par ticulars of the surrender of Col. Walker and his par ty are as follows: On the Gth of April, Walker and his party, which consisted of 35 men, started from the Colorado, at Howard's point On the 12 th they arrived at La Calantura, or "Warren's Ranch," when they found that the defence had been resumed by Melendrez, and that Lieut. Carroll and John Pattern had been taken prisoners and killed. The 17th they reach ed San Vicenta. A party of about 80 men, under the command of Melendrez, made their appearance upon a hill opposite the town, and trailed the filli buster's flag in the du3t anJ otherwise "insulted" tho party, whereupon Col. Waker ordered ten of his men to dislodge them from their position, which was done immediately. On the morning of the 19th, they moved on toward GaudUoupe, from which place Walker and a party of twelve proceed ed to San Tomas, where they surprised Melendrez and killed and wounded several of his men. The headquarters of Walker have been at Guadaloupe until the2Gth April, at which time Melendrez sent a flag of truce to Walker, offering him and his men a free pass out of the country if he would lay down his arms and make a formal surrender. Walker read the message and threw it beneath his feet, then by a series of well applied kicks eject ed the courier from his presence. That afternoon Melendrez made a regular attack upon the filibus ters his force consisted of about 90 men the en gagement lasted about three hours. A party of nineot w alters men charged. upon and put them all to flight. The force of Melendrez sustained quite a heavy loss, and in that of Walker, Commis sary Serjeant John E. Towns was killed and Ad jutant Samuel Ruland slightly wounded. On the morning of the 30th April, the fillibusters were marching to the Ensenado road, via La Grulla, they discovered the enemy in full force in ambuscade; they barely escaped being surprised, and had but sufficient time to enter "La Grulla Flat," where a battle ensued. They fought the whole of that day, at times in the open field, and then covered by the chapparel. At dusk Walker's party were entirely surrounded by the fire which had been made in the dry gras3 and shrubs; yet they fought their way outl In this action six of Melendrez's men were killed and nine wounded. William Anderson, of the filli busters, was slightly wounded. On the Cth May, in marching from the Lower Machada to Lagia Ju anna Ranch, they met a scouting party of the ene my, and kept up a running fight for ten miles. On the afternoon of the 8th of May,' Walker's party were marching for the U. S. line, Melendrez sent word to Walker that he would not be permitted to cross the line unless he would first lay down his arms. Col. Walker replied : "If Melendrez wants our arms, he can come and tike thom ; we will not run; but it will be at his peril." After some con siderabl eparading around about the fillibusters, not within gun-shot however, Melendrez disappeared and was seen no more. Tne party then marched on to the U. S. line, where they were met by a de tachment of U. S. troops, under the command of Major McKinistry and Capt H. S. Burton, U. S. A., to whom they surrendered. San Francisco. Silas E. Burrows, a wealthy citizen, and formerly a prominent merchant of New York, sailed on the 11th inst, in tfag clipper Lady Pierce for Japan on a peaceable and private mis sion to the Empeio-. The Lady Pierce, formerly the Race Hound, is a fine clipper of 500 tons, and the inside works are very elegant Mr. Burrows took with him a number of fine goods for presents, and declared his intention to present his vessel to the Emperor, if he was well received, and permit ted to remain. The vessel took no goods except stores and presents, and no passengers except Mr. Burrows and his son. J. H. Dunn, formerly of New York, editor of uie x acme ronce uazeite, ot winch only one num ber has appeared, was stabbed and killed bv a nrinf- er named Foley, when he was taking him to the statiou house. A subscription of Sl,100 was raised for Mrs. Dunn the next day. It is asserted that a vessel now in the harbor is being fitted up to act as a privateer under the Rus sian flag, as soon as the final declaration of war shall have reached here. Arrival of Col. Walker. The San Francisco Her ald of the IGth inst says : The steamer Southerner, Capt Hillard, arrived yesterday afternoon, four days from San Diego. Among the passengers 011 the Southerner, are Col. Walker and a large portion of his party. We rejoice to learn by the same arrival of the safety of the steamer Sea Bird, whose non-arrival has created so much uneasiness in our commu nity. Immediately on the arrival of Col. Walker he proceeded to report himself to Gen. Wool, in obe dience to the stipulation signed by him at the time of his surrender. Gen. Wool accompanied him to the office of the U. S. District Attorney, Col. Inge, where his parole to hold himself subject to tiie ac tion of the government authorities, for the nurnnses of an investigation, was verbally renewed. No bail w.is required.

I THE BLACK: WARRIOR AFFAIR-D.UPLlClTr OF SPAIN-. i The Madrid.corrc3ponaent'of theEpradon J'tmcs j writes to that-paper as follows": Madrid, May20. Tho statement I referred to yesterday, made by thePatrie, to the effect that at conferences between ,Mr. Soule and two of the Spanish .Ministers the affair of the Black Warrior had been settled to the satisfaction of all parties, is tolaVy false and 'un founded. Interviews there certainly ' were at or about the time mentioned by the French journal, but they unfortunately led to no such desirable re sult as that announced. Nor were they even of an official nature, but rather of that of private conver sation; and, as regards anything that has bean done here, the question i3 as far from adjustment as when last I entered into it at some length in my letters to you. My information on thi3 head is positive. It appears that after this Government had agreed to return the $0,000 fine, M. Sartorine saw Mr. Soule and expressed a strong wish that means could be found amicably and finally to settle the dispute between the two countries. This be ng said in the course of non-official con versation, and as a private wish of M. Sartorine, the American Minister, taking it in the light of an appeal to him to lend his good offices to the termi nation of the difficulty, did point out a manner in which he thought it might be concluded to the sat isfaction of both parties. At the very time that this occurred, and with that double dealing which is a characteristic of Spanish ministries, the Govern ment here had decided to send a special messenger to the United States, to try to settle the question without Mr. Soule's intervention. Accordingly, within forty-eight hours after the conversation, M. Galiano started for Washington, the bearer of writ ten dispatches and oral instructions from M. Cald eron de laBarca. Affairs of State, however, are not long secret in a country ruled by a woman so indiscreet of speech and so addicted to favorites as the present sovereign of Spain; and it appears that before the departure of the special envoy Mr. Soule was acquainted with its approach and with the na ture of the mission. The Ministers then tried to persuade him that M. Galiano's papers and instructions had refer ence to thesettlement of old affairs pending between the two countries, and had nothing to do with the Black Warrior, but Mr. Soule, it appears, was too well informed to be put off with such idle tales, and, doubtless, considering that a well intended attempt on his part to facilitate the friendly arrangement of a troublesome affair had been met with duplicity and underhand dealing, he referred M. Calderon s note to the United States Government, from which ho awaits instruction before proceeding further in the business. This chain of circumstances, and the actual position of the case, are not generally knows here, but to a few persons they are known, and I must say that I have hcird some of those whose regard to fair play and straightforward conduct is superior to the narrower proceedings of Ministers in this la3t phase of tho affair. Even if 1 were not well assured that this is the present state of the negotiations, a pretty strong inference that the dispute had not (as stated in Par is) been completely settled eleven days ago might be drawn from the fact3 that naval and military preparations for reinforcing Cuba are continued here with as much activity as Spanish Administrations are capable of, and that 1,000,000 reals have just been decreed for strengthening the fortifications of Cadiz. TUE XEBRASKA BILL. In another place we publish. the proceedings of the House of Representatives on the night of the passage of this bill. It has to be sent back to the Senate, but, as factign i3 too ashamed to put out much energy in that body, the country may confi dently look forward to its early passage. It cau not be denied that thi3 glorious result is attributa ble, in a most important degree, to President Pierce. On all questions of principle he is as true as steel. We affirm, and facts sustain the affirma tion, that President Pierce has gone farther in sus tainment of the South than anv President we have ever hail, whether a northern or a southern man. Upon the Nebraska bill he has gone farther than even one third ot the southern whies in Congress who voted upon it. Considering the Nebraska bill as a settled matter, and settled too in favor of the bouth, we propose an analysis of the vote upon it iynatuury nepuuiican. A SIGNIFICANT FACT. Of the seventy-four whigs in the House of Rep resentatiues, only thirteen voted for the Nebraska bill not one of whom was from tho free States. Of the one hundred and sixty democrats", one hundred voted lor the bill ot whom lorty-hve were from the free States, and fifty-five from the slave states. The question arising on this state of facts is, which, sa a party organization, is truest to the con stitution and to the country, the whig or the dem- o :ra tic party I that question is easily answered. No one can deny that the palm belonjs to the de mocracy. We would not, however, by any reason, dispar age those gallant whigs from the south, who, des pite the unbroken front presented against them by northern whiggery, and, despite the division in their own ranks at the south, came out gallantly, nobly, and manfully, in support of the Nebraska bill. They deserve much credit, and we cheerfully award it to them. HW. Sentinel. A DISAPPOINTED LOVER. An amusing occurrence took place in front of Alf Burnett s ice-cream saloon, last evening, which, though an old trick, will bear repeating occasion ally. The following are the circumstances connected with it : About three months since a young, vain and somewhat romantic Fourth street clerk received a very flattering letter, which purported to come from the daughter of a millionaire, who had had the exquisite pleasure ot purchasing some goods from him, and who accused him of taking her heart, as well as her father's cash in payment ot the goods. As he had good cause, the clerk felt flattered, and immediately answered the letter in his prettiest ftyle, vowing that he knew the writer and had fallen in love at sight Letter after letter passed oetween them, in which the cleric sought an inter view. The iady declared her willingness to accede to the wishes of her love, but she feared that if dis covered, the "difference in the rank" would so ex asperate her further that he would separate them forever, and crush her heart At last the clerk pro posed Gretna Green, and the lady, trusting that Heaven would appease the anger of her father, ac cepted, and the lovers, known only through a three months' correspondence, agreed to a runaway match and all its consequences. By letter, it was agreed that the lady should drive, in her father's carriage, to Alf Burnett's ice cream saloon last evening, where her lover was to meet her, and, in the "old fogy's carriage," hie away to Ohio's Gretna Green and be united in wedlock. She was to hang her handkerchief out j of the window to prevent mistake. Early in the evening the lover was at his post. and prompt to the hour, a carriage with a white handkerchief dangling from the window stopped in iront ot the saloon. The cleric coming to wit ness the heiress who was to be his wife, opened the door of the carriage and finding a female there alone, was sure he was right It is needless for us to add that the two were soon locked in each other's embrace. But the clerk was not satisfied with this. He wished a kiss, one fervent blissful kiss of love, and without even asking the con sent of his chosen one, he lifted her veil, and gave what might be called a plumper. As he did so, however, he shrunk back, as if bitten by a snake. The peculiar formation of the lips as well as a cer tain perfume, attracted his attention, and drawing the lady's face to the gas light, he found he held in his arms, a frightful nigger wench. The clerk hastened from the carriage, but only to find himself surrounded by fully one hundred of his acquaintances, who enjoyed the trick most heartily, and who seemed to be better posted than he was himself. After tormenting him to an al most hydrophobiae state, they suffered him to de part in peace. The "wealthy heiress" was of course a fellow clerk, who employed the wench to play the part, and invited the lover's friends to witness the last grand tableau of the play. Cin. Times. Body or Mr. E. Slevin Found. The mystery that has for months hung over the disappearance of this gentleman wa3 solved last evening by the finding of his body. The watchman on the steamer Logan, who we understand is a cripple and son of a widowed mother, was riding in a skiff at the foot of Sixth street, when he discovered a body and brought it ashore. It has been in the water for three month?, we believe, was consequently very much decomposed, and was not recognized, "but the watch and chain found on it was that worn by Mr. Slevin, the number and the maker of the watch and everything else corresponding precisely. The watch had stopped running about 3 o'clock. Mr. Slevin was seen for the last time about 2 o'clock in the morning. No marks of violence were discovered on the body. Coroner Green had a severe task to perform, we doubt whether there is one in a thou sand who could have done it. The office of coroner is no sinecure. The inquest will be found in an other column.

The question, Ihoagli startling, is sufficiently saggestire, whsn the fact is taken into consideration that diseases of the ltrerhaTe be come most alarmingly frequent in the United States. In deed, there are few formidable diseases that are cot in some way traceable to a deranged state of that important organ Many of the complaint usually classed under the head of Consumption, hava the r origin in the liver. "Any reme dy that would insure regularity and healthful action in the liver, would be a blessing to mankind I" has been the ex clamation of thousands. The remedy has been found ; it is safe and sure.
