The person al and political notices of the United Statos Sena tors, now in session at Washington, which we gave in the Herald of 3'esterday, will doubtless attract mticli attention. The first point of observation with regard to this body is, the amount of talent existing among the members, compared with the Senate of other days. It may be safely asserted, wetlnnk, that the character of the Senate is not deteriorating. If there are none to be found in the present Senate to supply the places of Webster, Clay, Calhoun, and Benton, it will be found that the average amount of talent is kept up in the whole number, and that Ihe proportion of really inferior men is small among the Senators. On running over the personal no tices which we have given, it is curious to observe the course of political training most of the Senators have undergone, in their respective States, by pub lic services of various kinds, before they have been considered qualified for election to the Senate. These services have been executive, legislative, ju dicial, or military, according to circumstances. The leading men as debaters in the Senate, as at present organized, leaving the free soilcrs out of the question, will doubtless he Cass, Hunter, Mason, Soule, Atherton, Butler, Douglas, Busk and Hous ton, on the democratic side with Clayton, Everett, Pearee, Dixon, Jones, Badger, Truman"Smith and Geyer, on that of the whig. Gen. Cass and Gen. Dodge sire the two oldest men in the Senate, being over seventy years of age. Most of the others have been born during the present century, and the aver age ages of the forty-live Senators whose years are known is about fifty. With regard to nativity, the old Slates still pre serve the preponderance in furnishing national le gislators, no less than thirty-nine out of forty-nine Senators whose birthplaces arc known having been born in the old thirtetn Stales, viz: In the New England States 14, in New York 4, Pennsylvania 2, Maryland 4, Delaware 2, Virginia 5, North Caro lina 2, South Carolina 4 and Georgia 2. Of the others, there were born in Tennessee 2. Indiana 2, Ohio 1, Missouri 1, Ireland 1, France 1, West In dies 2. Ethuologically considered, the fifty-six Sen ators, (there being six vacaticics.) may be classed as follows : Of Anglo-Saxon origin 39, Scotch 5, "Welsh G, Irish 1, French 3, Spanish 1, German 1 Total 50. One of the most striking points in the list of Sen ators, is the vast preponderance of gentlemen of the legal profession. A foreigner, in looking at the occupations in private life of the executive and le gislative branches of our government, might well suppose that the constitution provided that lawyers should always have the prel erence, on the same principle that the charter of the Mechanics' Bank, of this city, provides that a majority of the Board of Directors shall be mechanics. No less than forty one of the United Slates Senators are, or have been lawyers, leaving fifteen for all other occupations. Of these last, the medical profession have two; the mechanics, two; the military, the planters, and re tired gentlemen, the remainder the merchants not having one of their own number to represent them. Truly, the legal profession is the favored class with the people of this country X. Y. Herald. Sinculak Phenomenon. A severe snow storm accompanied by lightning occurred in a part of Maine ou the 13th tilt A correspondent of the Gardiner (Ma) Fountain, writing from Bass Har bor, Mt. Desert, describes the storm, as it appeared there, as awful and sublime. A thunder cloud passed over the place, which, for terrific appear ance, exceeded anything ever witncscdHherc. The correspondent adds: The lightning was of a purple color, and some times appeared like b.dls of fire, coming in through windows and doors, and down the chimneys, while the houses trembled and shook to their very found ations. Mrs. E. llolden was near a window, winding up a clock; a ball of fire came in through the window and struck her hand, which benumbed her hand and aim. She theu,.with all in the house, retreat ed into the entry. Another flash succeeded, and, in the room from which they had retired, resem bled a volume of fire, whirling round and produ cing a crackling noise. A similar appearance of iire was seen, and crackling noises were heard in a large number of the houses. Some who heard the noise say that it sounded like breaking glass. Capt. Maurice Rich had his light extinguished, and his wife was injured, lie got his wife on to a bed, and found a match; at that instant another flash came and ignited the match, and threw him several feet backwards. John L. Manin received so severe a shock that he could not speak for a long time. A great many persons were slightly injured. Some were struck in the feet, some in the eye; "while others were electrized, some powerfully and some lightly. But what was very singular, not a person was killed or seriously injured, or a building damaged; but a cluster of trees, within a few rods of two dwelling houses, were not thus fortunate. iuu uum came aown nmnno- thnm tn. king thorn out bv the earth, and throwing all in every direction. Some were left hanging by their roots from the tops of the adjacent trees, roots up and tops down. The lightning, after entering the cartli to the depth of several feet, and for a space some eiht or ten feet in diameter, divided iuto four different di rections. One course which it took led through " -J w A iJlUUCO (U1U the open land, making a chasm to the depth of sev eral feet, and continued its march unobstructed by the solid frozen ground, or any other substance to the distance of 370 feet; lifting, overturning, and throwing out. junks of frozen earth, some of which were 10 or 11 feet long, by 4 feet wide, and hurl ing at a distance rocks, stones, and roots. The pow er here displayed was truly awful, and had it fal len on a building, it would have thrown it, with its inmates, into ten thousand fragments. I understand tnat in Southwest Harbor and Northeast Harbor (in this island) several vessels had their masts rent in pieces; one had some plauk torn from her, and one man was knocked down, but not killed. Boston, March 9. The New England Baptist convention assembled to-day. The Rev. A. C. Caswell, of Rhode Island, was chosen President and Hon. Isaac Davis, of Massachusetts, Vice Pres ident A committee was appointed to consider the ex pediency of forming a Baptist historical society. A report was received from each of the New England States respecting the condition of the Baptist Colleges and Academies. - NASHYILLE, TENN. MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 14, 1853. TnE "Wholesale Tkade. The facilities opening up for communication with Nashville from the sur rounding country, are beginning to make this place the great point of travel and trade. Already does the wholesale trade begin to assume an importance as to almost rival in amount of business done Louis ville, Cincinnati and some cities on the seaboard. Within two vears this department of trade has in creased fifty per cent, andis steadily and rapidly ad vancing. ' This is not strange nor improbable. Our merchants make direct importations from Europe and the American manufactories. Their house rents and clerk's hire, together -with the accommodations afforded tliem for the cheap transportation of their heavy stooks of "oods through the various avenues J of transit, enable them to compete successfully with oar more northern neighbors. In purchasing from this market the country merchant saves time, in surance on his goods, and the various annoyances incident to getting his goods to market. Besides these advantages the dealer from the country gets his articles much cheaper, and by encouraging home trade helps to build up a department of com merce which .will be eventually to his advantage. The more our jobbers are patronized the more will it be in their power to sell goods at a less profit. Our trade is now large and prosperous. Prices ruling comparatively low in consequence ot our most extensive dealers having made their selections in advance of the eastern jobbers, and in view to the large advance in prices of dry goods. About 1st of January we learn that returning retail dealers from the Atlantic cities reserved a portion of their purchases to be made in Nashville having been unable to do any better in those markets than can be done here. So long as our extensive and en terprising jobbing houses continue to demonstrate their capacity to compete with the eastern jobbers in styles, quantity and prices, this will be an attrac tive market We advise merchants to give this market an examination before going elsewhere ' to make their purchases. Territory of Washington. A new territory with this designation was created, and provisions made for its organization, by an act of Congress ap proved on the 2nd instant It comprises that part of Oregon which lies north of the middle of the main channel of Columbia river, to where itcrosses the forty-sixth degree of latitude, and thence along said degree of latitude, to the top of the Rocky Mountains. The land occupied by missionary sta tions, not exceeding six hundred and forty acres to each, together with the improvements, is expressly reserved and confirmed to the missionary societies respectively which established the same. Stations that were so occupied prior to the passage of the act organizing the territory of Oregon are also con firmed to the societies which established them, even though they have since been abandoned. Henderson and Nashville Railroad. There can now be no doubt, says the Henderson (Ivy.) Banner, of the early commencement of this great work. We are grcally pleased to see that the ar duous labors of the able President of the Company, Col. E. II. IIorKiNS, have not been fruitless. In the week .past he has been speaking and laboring in Henderson, and considerable additional stock has been subscribed, which fact gives us hopes that Henderson will not long remain behind her sister counties in the cnterprizc. The English papers hardly know what, to make of Ericssons engine and the big ship. One says it is a "stupendous experiment, une qualled in point of audacity in the history of me chanics!

Washington, March 9. The American Telegraph convention met pursuant to adjournment The committee on resolutions reported on the following points, which were adopted in detail by the. con vention : 1. AH words in the body of the message should be counted as proper names, such' as the names of persons, steamers, cities, and shall be counted as many words as thero arc capitals used. . 3.

The convention called in a body and paid their respects to the President of the United States. They were courteously received.. . The members composing the convention repre sent over four-fifths of the telegraph of America. They agreed to hold annual meetingsin Wash ington hereafter. Mobile, March G. The Black Warrior arrived at Havana on the 3d. Mr. King's health had slightly improved. The El Dorado, from Asninwall. arrived at Ha vana on the 2d. The Providence bark Corsair arrived from Mo- "' zambique, bringing Uaptown papers of Jan. 4th. The mail of the 4th contains an account of a se vere fight, in which six thousand Basu tor horsemen were routed by about one thousand British. The chief, Morbest, had agreed to deliver ten thousand head of cattle and one thousand horses as a fine for depredations he had committed. He fail ed to comply with the engagements, and the gov ernor advanced into his territory to seize the cattle. Basu tors defended their property, and, although the British at one time captured thirty thousand, the Basutor horsemen were overthrown, and the next day the chief sued for peace. The conflict lasted from morning until night The British los3 was 38 killed and 15 wounded. The loss on the other side was much greater. 3 Cincinnati is becoming one of the most dis orderly places in the Union. Last Sunday seems to have been a general festival of fisticuffs, free fights, firemen's riots and all manner of ungodliness. The following account from the 2vonparid of Tues day, is a specimen : Another Riot. Sunday afternoon, as several of No. 8 Fire Company were drinking in a coffee house on the corner of Twelfth and Vine streets they were attacked by a party of No. 5 Fire Com pany. Stones and clubs flew thick and fast, striking and injuring several on each side. Those of the Eights then drew their revolvers and commenced firing upon the Fives, shooting two of the company one a boy, in the arm, aud the other in tha side. The Eights then retreated down Twelfth street to Western Row, chased by the Fives, both compa nies firing pistols and hurling stones and clubs at every step. The arrival of a posse of police under the direction of Capt Couch and Marshal Uufiin dispersed the rioters. Several balls entered the dwelling houses on Twelfth street, but fortunately no one was injured. Washington, March 9. It is rumored that Mr. Buchanan has received the appointment of Minister ;to the court of St' James. - THE 2EXT CANVASS. DEMOCRATIC MEETING IN LAWRENCE.

Nothing can ex ceed the nigh gratification of all Union men here, at the strong and manly language of General Pierce in suppport of the Constitution, the Compromise and State rights. It is remarkable that the snowstorm -which com menced this morning was nearly suspended during the inauguration ceremonies, but, immediately af ter, was renewed with increased violence. Yesterday the scene in the capitol till midnight wasawfuL The rush, the crush, and the confusion ' jitWn.bqth houses and outside caunot be described by words. Towards the small hours of morning, .the crpwd thinned dut considerably, and both houses diminished to a few scattering members till the votes were called, when the sleepers on the so- ! fas, and in the side rooms were drummed up. , There as a fine chance, however, for the Galphins, ! for neither house appeared to know what it was do ing, while the lobby members were wide awake. I President Fillmore was in the capitol signing bills till after midnight. The city, all night, was in an ! uproar. Lands of music, rcekets, artillery and j wandering strangers with carpet bogs were "to be 1 seen at every turn. The city this-morning swarmed i like a beehive. APOLOGV OF THE CaVTAIN GeNBUAE 01 England. AVe have already mentioned Cuba to the fact that the British ship of the line Cumberland recently visited Havana, with a formal demand upon Gen 1 Canedo for satisfaction and apology lor the outrages committed lately upon the persons pf British sub jects in the Island ot Cuba, and for the insults to the British Government in the persons of H. B. M. Consul General, and the commander of,the ship-of-war Vestal; and also for the late connivance on the part of the Spanish officers in the slave-trading operations in Cuba. The Xew Orleans Picuyune says: Gen. Canedo assured the British commander that it had never been his intention to insnltthe officers of the British Government, or to reflect upon their conduct in any way; and that immediate examina tion should be made into the claims of British sub jects, and ample reparation should be made Jbr any injury that might have resulted to them through unjust proceedings. The Picuyune also states it was rumored in Ha vana that a British Commissioner was on his way there to demand the immediate manumission of every African that had been imported into that island since 1S21, in contravention of the terms of the treaty with 1'lnglaud. This rumor was causing great consternation in Havana, as it was supposed it would manumit three-fourths of the slaves in, the Island. . The British Admiral had sent orders to Bermuda for so. ne more English ships-of-war to proceed to Havana, and the permanent English naval force there was to be largely increased. An effort is to be made to stop the slave trade by direct intimida tion of the principal authorities of the Island. A. O. P. Nicholson.

Washington, March 4. The address of Gen. Pierce to-day, is the subject of conversation among all parties at the hotels to night. Every body is delighted with it except the Barnburners. Even the whigs praise it. Gen. Cass says . it i3 a good old fogy speech, and Judge Douglass says it is of the Young America school. It would seem that Gen. Pierce's observations on foreign relations are not only not an empty flourish, but have a deep import. He recently received a telegraph message, from a reliable source, in refer ence to the Black Warrior affair. So you need not be surprised to hear soon that he will take an im portant step, in reference to the Cuban affairs. The President intends to manage the foreign reiations himself. It is curious that Fillmore and Pierce not only changed places to da3 in a political sense, but ex changed quarters Mr. Fillmore taking the rooms LhatjUen. Pierce left at Willard's. It is considered a courteous act on the part of Mr. Fillmore to have written Gen. Pierce to try to accompany him in the procession to the capitol. New York Herald. Washington, March D, M.
