Hawke, a mes senger in the Post-office Department, (residing on M. between Seventh and Eighth streets.) had taken the life of his wife by inflicting wounds upon her throat with a razor! The particulars of this tragedy are briefly these For some months past Mr. Hawke has been in a melancholy state of mind. On Saturday the family retired to bed, as usual, at about 9 o'clock; he and his wife occupying the front, and their child (a girl, probably thirteen years of age,) the back chamber on the same ft or. A lew min utes after ten o'clock the last named was arous- ed ir 'm snimuer jy win sureoiua ii n.,,,,.,, who had leaped from bed and was rapidly de scending the stairs, while her tather, who had raised the window, was crying in a loud tone, as if addressing persons in the street, that he had cut his wife's throat and his own, and that he intended to cut that of his child! Mrs. Hawke having reached the street door, endeavored to make a communication to a lad who at that time was passing to his home, which adjoined her own ; but she was unable to arttc ula'.e, and meantime convulsively clasped her throat with her hand. In her agony she retieat- ed into the house, and shortly afterwards reap pearded, but was again unsuccessful in her at- empt to speak. The neighbors, however, were 1 .... .i t A rv, coo t YtC m soon aiarmeu, aim on euicnug mc picmio ...j discovered the unfortunate woman lying on the floor in the agonies of death, her night clothes saturated with bl Jod, the arteries and windpipe having been completely severed; while her wretched husband was standing near to her. (jn his drawers,) with his arms extended, painfully exclaiming, "Oh! 1 have killed my wife! I ha e cut my wife's throat f The child occupied a position on the stairs, mingling her cries with the declaration of her guilty father. He had made two t uts at his throat, causing a large, flow of blood, but which are not consider ed dangerous. From his own statement, his wife, after she was wounded, seized the razor, thereby cutting her hand, and by this interference prevented him from consummating his design upon himself. " if my wife," said he, " had not knocked it out of my hand, 1 would not now be here." , . Mr. Hawke w;.s arrested on the same night, and taken to the central watch-house, where he acknowledged that he had cut his wife's throat, but was not aware that she died in consequence. A razor, similar to that he had made use or, was produced from his pocket, on being asked if he hud one in his possession. He was finally corn- Cecilia Evans; and I conjure you, by all that is good and sacred, that my dear, sweet, pure, holy, good, and amiable, and devoted wife, and my dear beloved daughter, may be laid bX my side, die when they will, and let a priest bury me.

Let rakes extol a roving life, Of freedom prate, and all that Of noisy brats and scolding wife, And doctor's bills, and all that : Though fools may rail, and jest and scoff, A wife's the thing, for all that. The time, they'll find, is not far off When so they'll think, for all that. "Tis true, when youth and fortune smile, And health is firm, and all that, When wine, and song, and dance beguile Variety, and all that ; When every place, where's you roam, Has jolly friends, and all that ; You want for neither wife nor home, Nor sympathy, nor all that. But age comes on with stealthy pace, And sober thoughts, and all that ; Trouble will show her frowning face, Sickness and pain, and all that. The feast, the bowl, will'.lose their powers, And reverely, and all that; Then shall we need, to cheer the hours, A wile, a home, and all that. Oh ! " when misfortune clouds the brow," Disease and death, and all that, Then, "woman, then an angel thou," To soothe and cheer, and all that. Thy gentle cares beguile our pains, Our sleepless nights, and all that ; Thy voice the sighing soul sustains. With hope aud trust, and all that. The Chinese RebellionIts History and Progress. For some time past we have been regaled at ntervals, with1 confused and unsatisfactory ac counts of a rebellion in China, but what it wns all about we venture to say but few of us " out side barbarians" knew litMe or nothing at ail- though we heard of rebel armies of 60,000 strong ; of captuies of cities ; of defeats and hanging of leaders, &c. However, when news come3 to us that the great city of Nankin, with a population of some four hundred thousand souls, has been reduced to subjection by the insurgents, and that Canton, even, the greatest commercial empori um of Asia, with something like a million of inhabitants, is in danger of falling into their hands, it isa matter of importance to look into the history of the war and its details. An arti cle in the London Times gives us about the most intelligible idea of the Celestial Revolution. from its inception down to its newest and most important phrase, that has yet met our eye. From this it would seem that the overthrow of an Empire may be the result ere long, dis turbing the interested commercial relations of England and the United States therewith. We have a heavy and growing trade with China, both directly to New York and California, which the contiguity of the latter to that Empire must rap idly increase as well as produce other effects in our relations and intercourse with that people in ihe future. The political design of the reoeltion isinrclved in obscurity. The dethronement ol the reigning Emperor, however, is now the A nh;rt Hp beloripa to the Mantcnoo --j - o- Tartan dynasty, which subdued the Chinese two hundred years ago, and has held the throne ever since. Some pretender who, or what he is, does not appear is among the insurgents, and he is to be made king, not emperor, in case of Am Unpublished Letter of Washington The Baltimore American of the 14th inst., is in- lebted to Dr. Cockey for the pleasure of present ing to its readers an unpublished letter of the great Washington. It is addressed to Brigadier Gen. Gist, and we can understand that as it re lates to the Marylanders of the revolution, their descendants should be gratified by the perusal of this brief epistle: Headquarters, near New Windsor, i Jan. 2, 1781. $ Dear &'ir I am pleased to hear, by you;; of tlie loth ult., that the Legislature of your State are making spirited exerions and preparations against the next campaign. This seems to I the prevailing disposition ; but, I fear the mean.s which have been generally adopted, for procuring men, will not answer. Where there Is an al ternative of money or men, the former will bo preferred by the wealthier classes as being least troublesome. Mrs. Washington informs me, that when she passed through Baltimore, you were at a loss to know how to apply the shirts purchased by the subscription of the ladies. I wonder at that, as 1 had, sometime before, written to Mra. Got. Lee, and desired that they might all be sent tt the Southern army. My letter, I presume, had not then readied her, or, she had not communi cated my intentions to those who hava the care of them. I am, dear sir, your most ob't and humble servant, G. WASHINGTON. Brig.

The revolution has been of several years growth, and the London Times, in its history of it, says: The rebel army advanced by slow degrees ant! with incessant fighting irom the southern pro vinces, steadily gaining ground, and augmenting their forces not only by the volunteers naturally attracted to a successful cause, but by compulso ry levies from the districts through which they passed. In November last they had got to Woo-chanz the capital town of the central pro vinces, standing on the great river Yantsee, the Tagtis of China; from which important posi tion they could descend upon Nankin, distant by the rive: some &00 miles. At this time their army was computed to exceed 50,000 men, and It was thought that the Emperor could not array ooainst them anvthinc like an eaual force. Our o J w reports, indeed, informed us at that time the ut most consternation was prevailing at all the towns between Woo-chang and the capital, nor mediate details, find any difficulty in now com prehending the despatch to the effect that " Nan kin had fallen into the hands of the rebels on'the 19th of February." The remark appended to this announcement, that nothing but European intervention could maintain " the Emperor on his throne," is curi ously characteristic of our reputation in the East. It is hard, however, to say with what pretext or even motive such an intervention could be ex ercised. The mere substitution at Pekin of a dvnasty which nobody comprehends for another which nobody understood, could not be likely to exert any material influence on European trans actions. As far as we can discern, the rebellion appears, if not to have originated, at any rate to have proceeded on the assumption, that the whole country was misgoverned, overtaxed and generally oppressed." Thus it will be seeh that the limes, as yet, ap pears not to favor, particularly, European inter vention, but further remarks, significantly enough : It must be remembered that the recent exten sion of the disturbance to some of the chief tta districts may produce consequences which were escaped while the contest was coufined to the more southern or central parts ot the empire. The Friend of China, however, urges that it is for the interest of European powers to come to the rescue of the Emperor. It is urged that weie the present dynasty subverted, and a state of tmarchy ensue, the preservation of quiet o.. her frontier would afford Russia plausible grounds for interference, if not for annexation. Forty thousand Russian troops co'uld probably hold China Proper more easily than the same number of English hold Hindoostan. The latest advices from China to the 221 o March show, however, that the fall ot JNankm- with the rebels within a few marches of Shang hai, threatening it with their 50,000 men, had aroused the young Emperor to energetic endeav nr& to meet the emsraency. He had issued an edict, calling upon the people to unite in his be half, and detailing the military defensive Opera tiona to be pursued : and he has levied a tax on opium, to replenish the treasury and promised f-t-nrs and rewards to tnose wno snoum am uuu ...u nn. m aiinnlv t he smews ot war. lie Willi luunvi -v rr .

The steamer El Paraguay, from Charleston, arrived at Kingston, Jamaica, on tiw 24th ultimo, with two slaves on board, who had been secreted on board by the Bteward. Great excitement was afterwards occasioned by a re port that other slaves were found on board by the captain, and put in irons. A mob of ne groes consequently assembled, and became so threatening that the magistrates were forced to search the ship, iii order to pacify them. In the meantime, parties of negroes fud gone off in boats, and commenced en attack on the steamer, but tbey were effectually resisted. Another party of negroes went to Port Royal to indue the Commodore to stop the steamer at that plan and subject her to another search, which was re fused. Quiet was finally restored, and the El Para guay proceeded on her voyage, leaving the stew ard and another colored man, who had been in duced by the rioters to remain at Kingston. The two slaves, who are named II. S. Hardy mid William Lewis, were kept in custody on board the steamer, and will be takeu back to Cbarle- - . . , ri I ton. They were not uiscovereu unui seerii davs after the steamer left Charleston. Political and commercial affairs are very un settled at Jamaica, in consequence of a difficulty with the legislature, which resulted in throwing out the impost duty bill, and the subsequent prorogation of the legislature until the 17th inst. All articles are now admitted without duty be ing legally collectable. In consequence, specu lators are hurrying off orders for lurge cargoes to the United States. Trying One's Temper. Duriug the recent trip of the Eclipse from New Orleans, (says the Louisville Journal) a young gentleman, who ha 1 just got married, got on board at Memphis to engage passage for himself and wife, but, bet he could get ashore again, the boat, had shoved off, and he found himself going up the Misir sippi at the rate of twenty miles per hour. I lady love standing at the wharf and witnessing the distressing sight. In vain did he apjeil lo the captain to land him, depicting his own situ ation and sufferings as well as these of "the wife lie left behind him" in the most feeling terms. At Paducah, the Eclipse took a boat in ow laden with wood. On it he escaped, and intended to hail the first steamer for Memphis. From his condition when he left the Eclipse, the passengers were of opinion that he could not survive the shock forty-eight hours. Too Good to Keep.
