safely in the boats, then lowered himself down,
and the boat pulled away. He was rowed
alongdide the Three Bells, whore he ?u greeted
witli nine hearty cheer*, and then pulled away
for the Antarctic. The San Francisco had, by
his order*, been scuttled, and we could see her
settling gradually deeper into the water.
About 2 P. M. the Three Bolls hauled nail,
and moved slurfly aw?y from the wreck.
When the Three Bolls left, th? wreck, bIio wan
in latitude 39 and longitude 6H hi), about 600
miles from New Vork.
Friday dawned bright and fair. We signal
led for a pilot, and then a steamtug, and at 5
P. M. we were at anchor off the-Battery.
Number of souls on board when tho
San Francisco left New York - 700

The San Francisco was insured in New-York
and Philadelphia for $300,000, which cover? her
value. Tho aargo on board confuted wholly
of storM for the troop*, and belonging to the
United States Government, which toere not in
sured.
" One of the Crew,'' who writes an admira
ble sketch, says:
"In the midst of this despondency, however,
there were some who, even in this hour of peril,
felt not its terrors. Tho officers of tho ship
went from man to man, inspiring ull with
hone, and oheering them with the promise of
safety. Some of the officers of the troopw show
ed themselves an daring in this trying hour,
amid creaking cordage and falling spars, as
they oould have been amid elashing Habres
and gleaming arms. Major F. (). Wyso, Lieut.
W. A. Winder, Lieut. C. S. Winder, Lieut. Van
Voast, Lieut. Chandler, and Sergeant Brown, of
XJompauy G, were amoug those most conspic
uous in their efforts to revive the drooping spir
its of the passengers."
LATER.
It appears that the Lucy Thompson lyis ar
rived at New York, with all the passengers re
ceived from the Sau Francisco by the barque
Kilby, and not from the Autarctia, as reported.
The passengers suffered much on the Kilby,
for wantoi provisions and water. ^Vlicn fallen
in with, she was crippled, leaky; and short of
provisions. The Lucy Thompson supplied her
with provisions and sails, and thirteen soldiers
nobly volunteered tqremain and assist her into
port. But it is feared she has been driven into
the Gulf Stream. A steamer ha* been sent
after her. .
After parting from tho San Francisco, in the
night of the 29th ultimo, she cruisod about two
days in seurch of her, and then, being badly
crippled herself, was obliged to desist.
The total number of the San Francisco's pas
sengers on the Kilby was one hundred and
eight. Those brought here by the Lucy Thomp
son arrived iu a most pitiable condition, being
wet, oold, hungry, and almost nuked. The ma
jority of them were taken to the Astor House,
where everything possible for their ooipfort wad
done by the proprietors and boarders. Tho
wife of Major Wyse remained on board the
Kilby, being too much exhausted for removul.
The following are additional names of those
swept from the docks of the San Francisco bv
the waves: Mr. Tenuey, Mr. D. C. Stock well,
Miss Bolton, Mr. Gates. Mrs. Chase and child,
Mr. Lacrade and wife, Mies Lucy Moore, and
Mr. Farnsworth, an engineer.

CONGRESS.
THIRTY third CONURESS VIR8T SESSION.
Senate, Monday, January 16, 1854.
Mr. Fearce submitted a resolution, directing
(he Committee ou Naval Affairs to inquire into
the expediency of making Home national ac
knowledgment to the officers and crow of the
British ship "Three Bells," and to the Ameri
can vessels *? Kilby ? and " Antarctic" for then
bravery and humanity displayed in the peril
ous rescue by them ol' the passengers of the
steamer San Francisco. ^ ..
Hh paid ftn oloquent tribute to tlio gallantry
and high d^ree of humanity evinced by tho
noble commander of the British vessel Three
Bells," in lying, with his own brig shattered by
the same storm, alongside ot that steamer do
ring the perilous situation of thoso on board.
He commented uW> on tho admirable conduct
displayed by the officers and orowsot the other
vessel)' and said such exertions only could have
been prompted by tho purest feelings of hu
manity , ^ . _
Mr. Shields submitted as a substitute tor
the resolution, one calling upon the Seorotasy
of War to communicate to the Senate all an
thontic information in the fnissetsion of the
War Department in relation to the cause ot
the wreck of the steamer San Francisco, and
the means used and employed in the rescue o
the persons on board the same. ...
He said he had had an interview with the
Secretary of War on the subject, and was in
I formed that he expected full and authentic in
formation upon the whole subject matter in
time days. When this information wes re
ceived, the Senate could act advisedly in with
holding and bestowing acknowledgments and
rewirds.
Mr. (3 win was in favor of the resolution of
fered by the Senator froin Maryland. He
thought this subject would involve many in
ouiries appropriate to several committees
whether relief ought not to be given to those
who rescued tho lingers; whether pensions
ought not to be given to the relatives of those
who lost their lives iu that vessel, and remit
iteration made to those who lost their property
in that vessel. t
Mr. Masou supported the resolution ol the
Senator from Maryland, but thought the in
quiry ought to l?e sent to the Military < oin
mittee. . ..
Mr Butler took a similar view ol llie subject
After some remarks by Messrs Badger and
Houston, the resolution offered by Mr. I^urce
was agreed to, and also the resolution offered
by Mr. Shields.
I * Mr. Fettit, from the Committee on the Jndt
oiarf, to whieh had been referred the question
of the right of the Hem. S. S. Fhclps to occupy
a seat as a Senator from the SlaUi of V ermont.
made a report, which was ordered to be print
ed; and on his motion, the subject was post-,
?Mined till Wednesday next.
He also presented a paper containing the
views of the minority of the Committee on the
"" Mr Hunter presented the memorial of the
Southern Baptist Conferen e, askiug the adop
tion, by the United States, of measures to secure
to Americans, while travelling or sojourning in
foreign countries, the right of religions freedom
Referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs
Mr. Dixon gave notice of an amendment he
intended to offer to the bill U> establish a I er
ritorial (itwernment for Nebraska, wliich would
provide that so much of the act of Congress ol
1820 in relation to the admission ol Missouri
iu* a State, an prohibits Slavery and involuntary
servitude in that portion of the Territory of
Louisiana lying north of 3H dog. 30 win., be
declared inapplicable to the Territory embrac
ed within the boundaries of Nebraska.
Mr Fettit. from the Judiciary Committee, to
which had l?een referred the bill |Mr. < liases|
to divide the State of Ohio into two judicial
districts, reported the same hack, with several
amendments.
Mr Hamlin, from the Committee on Printing,
retorted a resolution directing the printing of
copies of an abstract of the census,
containing certain tqsicified tables.
On motion o( Mr. <Jwin, the blank was filled
by 50 000, and. as amended, the resolution was
agreed to.
Mr Adams from the ( ommitteeon Ketraaen
ment and Reform, to which had been referred
the memorial of several clerks in the Kxeeutivo
Departments, asking an increase of their sala
ries, reported a bill, which was road twice, and
ordered to be printed.
Mr. Shields, from the Committee on Military
Affairs, reported a bill increasing the military
establishment of the United States a hill regir
latmg the pay and allowances ot the army anil
a bill to increase the, efficiency ol tho army by
providing a retired list for disabled officers.
Mr. (iwin, from tho Committee on Naval
Affairs, to which had been relerrod the joint
resolution from the House, expressing the
thanks and approval of Lieutenant Ingraham s
conduct in the difficulties at Smyrna, giowing
out of the esse of Martin k'oszt*. reported the
name bank, and asko.l that it 1*> pot on its
pMsage. It was rrad twice, and considered.
Mr. Badg or Kuid I'A h:t<l un amendment to
offer to thin resolution. but would not do bo
now, because the hour for the spooial order had
long since pawed, and it was uoihg tin* Sena
tor from Delaware injustice to postpone it any
longer. It was then postponed.
1'he Senate then resumed the consideration
of the motion to refer to tho Comnittw on
Foreign Relation* the Message of the Presi
dent ol the Unit id States, transmitting certain
correspondence in relation to the Clayton Bul
wer treaty.
Mr. Clayton resumed tho remarks com
meuoed by him on Thursday hurt, in reply to
the speech made on Wednesday l>y Mr. Cass.
To further show thut tho Souuto did not un
dtrstand tho treaty as embracing within its
provisions the British settlement at the Belixc,
and that such wiw the opiuion of Mr. King, he
quoted from some remarks mad" in the Senate
by Mr. Manguin, then a member of the Com
mittee on Foreign Relations. He said that at
the time the treaty was ratified, Mr. Webster
Was also a member of the Committee on For
eign Relations, and voted for tho treaty.
He further contended that when informed hy
Mr. King thut the Senate clearly understood
tho treaty as he did, that he was justified in
believing and acting upon that information.
He justified his remarks last spring, upon the
subject, in reply to the remarks made by Mr
Cass, during the winter preceding, hy quoting
reports of that gentleman's sp-jeoh.
If Mr. W. thought he voted for tho treaty un
der the impression that tho Belize was inoluded,
why did that gentleman, who shortly after be
came Secretary of State, quietly submit to
the continuance by Great Britain of that set
tlement, during the whole period that he was
Secretary of State ? Had Mr. Webster thought
the treaty meant what tho Senator from Mich
igan says the Senate thought it did, would he
not have remonstrated against the "Violation of
tho treaty ? and would he not have called tho
attuution of Congress to the subject, if the vio
lation was continued?
He explained the British title at Belize to be
nothing more than a right of settlement, which
could be terminated at this time by Mexico.
He then examined tho?conduct of Great
Britain throughout nil the negotiations, pend
ing and before the treaty, and since that time,
and contended that Great Britain had violated
the treaty, and, judging from the recent des
patch of f.nrd Clarendon, he supposed the pro
tectorate of the Mosquito coast was to be con
tinued, and he was in favor of resisting that
violation of tho treaty by an efficient demon
1 stration.
Ho, however, supposed that there was some
mistake in the dispatch, but if another one of
a like tenor were received from the British
Government, be would introduce a bill placing
at the disposal of the President the naval and
military forces of the eouutry, to maintain the
rights and honor of the country.
Mr. Cass replied.
House of Rfpreseyilutnts, Jan. 16, 1854.
Prayor was offered by Rev. Mr. Millbum,
chaplain of the House. A fair attendance of
members, and a very quiet, sedate, and busi
ness-like House.
After tho Journal was read?
Mr. Bissell presented a bill giving four
months pay to each officer and soldier rescued
from the stoamer San Francisco, and to the
widows aud children of such as have been lost;
which was referred to the Committee on Mili
tary Affairs.
A dozen members now sprung to the floor,
all apparently prepared to offer preambles and
resolutions in relation to the disaster of the
steamer San Francisco, and the rescue of her
passengers aud crew. Great disorder prevail
ed for a time, in consequence of the earnest de
sire of several meml>ers from New York, and
Pennsylvania, each to present and read his own
resolutions.
Mr. Chandler at length succeeded in getting
before the House his eloquent series, thanking
the commanders, officers, and crews, of the
British ship Three Bells, the American ship
Antarctic, and the American barque Kilhy, for
their gallant, perilous, and merciful interposi
tion, and proposing a Joint Committee, contest
ing of nine members of the House and ? of the
Senate, to take the subject info consideration,
and report to Congress what action, in their
opinion, is proper in tho premises.
Mr. Cutting proposed an additional resolu
tion, recommending that the |>avment of suit
able compensation to these merchant ship* be
also considered and rejiorted upon. He also
read his full series, but this alone was at his
request, adopted by Mr. Chandler.
Mr. Florence, of Pennsylvania, presented, and
read for information, his series. He was in
terrupted by Mr. Walsh, of New York, who
ironically Imped tho Himse would'conio to order
and listen, or let him liHtcu to tho pathetic
resolutions of Mr. Florence. When tho Speak
er had brought the House to order for this pur
pose, Mr. Florence resumed at the precise word
in tho middle of a sentence at which he had
left off, when general laughter arose. But Mr.
Florence persisted, and read through his very
appropriate and feeling preamble and resolu
tions, which propose, in addition to other things,
that medals be presented to all who participated
in the work of rescuing the unfortunate suffer
ers on board the steamer.
Mr. Walbridge made several fierce attempts
to read the resolutions he had preparod, but
was unsuccessful. There w as uow great con
lusjpn , aud various motions to refer, inquiries*
relating to the proper order of business, fcc,
were inade by Messrs Walbridge. Campbell
of Ohio, Walsh, Faulkner, Cliugmau. and
others.
Mr. Chandler's series rind the additional res
oluti^m of Mr. Cutting were finally adopted.
Mr. Church weP's resolution, that the Com
mittee of Ways and Moans be instructed to re J
port a bill guing a credit of four years to rail
road companies to pay the duty on iron import
ed by them for railroad purposes, was now ta
ken up in order?the question being un the
motiouof Mr. Hamilton, of Maryland, io lay
it on tmt"tal?lo; which was determined in the
affirmative?yeas ^8, nays ft'J.
Mr. Jones, of Tennessee. moved to suspend
the ruletj, in order to enable him to present a
resolution making the ?<on?id?ration of the
Homestoad bill the order of the day for Tues
day, the 14th of February next, and lor each
succeeding day, (private bill .days excepted,)
until tho subject shall lie disisisod ? f The rules
were su -pended, and his r<M?lution wa* adopted
Mr. /.ollieofl'er proposed a resolution, refer
ring to the Committee on Military Affairs the
propriety and expediency of establishing a
military academy at the Hermitage, in Tennes
see; which was rejected.
Mr. Zollicoffcr proposed a resolution, making
the bill for building nix Krut class t-tcam frig
ates the special order of the ?Iin C'ommitteo
of the Whole, for Thursday of this work;
which ww also rejected.
Mr. (,'hainberlain, of Indiana, presented a
j series of resolutions requesting the Committor
I on I'ublia Lands to report a nN lo piovule for
the survey of the public lands with a view ol
making appropriations of the Mine, for the
purpose of making railroad* through the States
and Territories and for granting portions of
these lands to actual settlers. The instructions
t<> tho committee embrnend in these resolution*
are very elaborate, >iomprisiug probably all the
particular* necessary t-> he embraced in the
desirod bill. They were adopted.
Mr. Mace, of Indiana, proposed a bill to di
vide that State intotwo Judicial District*; which
was referred to the Committee on Judiciary.
Mr. Wentworih, of Illinois, presented ate*o

Rumoiik ok Chamukh in tiuc Cabinet.?
We simply reier to these rumors ti?r tho pur

some attention, and made some investigations,

papers,and those who remain in tho Inland will
disposo of their wages, to which they have
a right, with the discount only of a part, whioh
shall never exceed the fourth part; and that
those who have not served five years will be
only different front the others inasmuch as
they will not dispose of the proceeds of their
labor, which will be in trust during their ap
prenticeship.

ON or before the Ixt of January, I8.M, the Execu
tive Committee oi the New \ ork State Temper
ranee Society will iasuu the first number of a Month
ly Teui|ieraucc Journal, under the title of" Thk Piu
HiBiTiomsr."
I ra Si/.k.?|t will he printed on a double medium
sheet, making eight <|ttarto page*, of four column* to
a pitgo, and, exuluding advertisement*, each number
will contain an umount of reading matter equal al
luat-t to that furnished by our larger si zed daily jour
nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume ol
160 pager
Its Objict.?To advocate the Cause of Temper
ance generally, audespecially the Legislative Prohibi
tion of the Traffic iu nitoxicntiiifc Beverages, to pre
pare the minds of the masses for such Prohibition, by
showing its expediency aud Necessity, and to soeure,
by all the intluuiioe it inay legitimately exert, the
vigorous enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob
tained.
Its Fiki.u.?Dealing with general principles, with
arguments alike applicable to every community where
tho traffic exists and with facts illustrative of these
arguments and principles, the paper will be National
in its spirit, in it* scope, in iU purpose, and, we trust,
it will be National in its circulation and influence.
Such is our aim and oxpcctation. Wo desire to ace
the Principle of Prohibition established in Statu after
State, till it becomes the recognised policy of the Na
tion. It is our ambition to bear a part in this gront
work, and to this end Tin: 1'kohi nrrioNisr is estab
lished, not as the organ ot a society merely, but of a
Git K AT Itlt'oRMAToKV MoVK.ll K NT.
Its NHi? issm .? The existing Temperance Jour
nals have little, il any, circulation outside of the Tem
perance Hunks. Their price almost necessarily re
stricts them to the friends of the cause. Tub Pbo
hihitiomst is designed for circulation (instead of
tracts) among the indifferent and the hostile. For
this purpose it is put at a pricc so low as to enable
the friends of Tcui[>cranco in every school district, by
combined action and at an inoonsiderablo expense,
to place a copy in each family that will consent to re
coivo it.
Its Prick.?One copy for one year - - $0 50
Three, to ono address, ono year 1 00
Syvcn do. do. - - 2 00
And for each additional four copies, $1.00 will bo
added, for any quantity less than fifty copies
For fifty copies to one address - - $11 00
For 100 do. do. - . 20 00
No subscription received for less than ono year,
and in overy case tho order must be accompanied by
the money.
Tho paper will bo under the general direction of
the Executive Committee, who have received ample
assurances of literary aid from not a few of the ablest
and most eminent writers in the teinperanco ranks
throughout the Union
The work will be stereoty|?ed, aud back numbers
can be supplied to new subscribers at any time during
the year.
All orders should be addressed tofO Seovill, Pub
lishing Agent, Albany.
Communications for the paper, or in relation to tho
interests of the cause generally, should bo directod to
Win. II Burlagh, Corresponding Socretary.
In behalf of tho New \ ork State Temperance So
ciety : EDWARD 0. DKLAVAN, President
Kueutivr. Commktee.?Henry Mandeville, Reuben
H. Walworth, John 0. Cole, I. N. WyckofT, William
Richardson. Edgar B Day, llermon Camp, B. P.
Staat.x, Oliver Seovill.
[?p~ The Coinmitteo request all editors in tho Uni
tod States to give tho above one insortion in their
columns. To all who comply with this request, we
will send the Prohibitionist lor one year, without an
exchange, unless they choose to add to our obligation
by sonding their papers also, which would, of course,
bo most thankfully received. Jan. 2?dtf

ly-ruado boot is not at all times a source of pleasure
to the wearer, but often one of extreme torture; thin
Is caused by t(ie bungling manner in which the boot
is fitted to tho foot. Mr. Jannuy has devotod much
of his time in studying the construction of tho huinfin
loot, in order to ascertain how a boot should ho cut
and fitted, that will be perfectly easy to all parts of
the loot. In this he hag auoaoeded, so that it matters

on the foot, his boot is perfectly easy. Thus ho has
combined beauty with comfort.
