Thf. (.Wit .tjfuii , It seems liot entirely iin
. probable that tlie Vui'cJ States nmy yet take a
part in the war that seem certainly approaching
I - in Europe.
In the rttrtioon of tlie 2lt June, ISM,
Martin Costa,' a Hungarian refugee, was set
Upon In Smyrna by oine fifteen rufH in Greeks,
all armed, said ti have teen emloyed Tor that
' purpose ty the Austrian consul ; and, after
having been, treated in tlie most brutal manner,
was thrown tit'o the sea, where a boat was wait
, irg to receive an J conduct him to the Austrian
! brig Hussar, where be wai confined in double
' irona. .
' " Although he was not a citizen of the United
Stated, (till he bud made hit decluralion of Men
Hon to apply to become such, dipt. Ingraham,
of the United State ship Ft. Louis, knowing
' that certain dcarii would await the man it he
should be cai ricd to Austria, determined, if pos
sible, to save him, if he could do it without com
. promising our Cag.
, ! ' A private letter to the editors of the National
'intelligencer, dated July 7, from an cflioer o(
'the sloop-of-war, St. Louis, gives the lolluwing
.detailed, and, the. Intelligencer presumes, faith
ful account of Opt. lngral.ain's courte, and its
results V 1
Orders had been Issued by the Austrian con
sul to carry the man away on lite M'JAi of June.
Capt. Ingraham, hearing this on the night of the
J8th,'eut his protest that the man must not be
carried away unt'1 it was fully settled whether
or not Martin Costa was an American. Uu the
morning of the -Jlli our ship made sail and bore
jdown towards the Austrian bri, and anchored
near, to we could watch and see that the man
was not carried oil". The Austrian, thinking
that we were going to lake the man, made every
preparation to receive us. During the morning
' the Austrian captain sent word that the man
would not be sent away. Letters came the
arne day from Mr. Drown, the Charge d'Af
f aires ad interim at Constantinople, sliding that
Kosta was a citizen of the United Slates, nud us
such was entitled to protection from our country.
Well, os things stood, the Captain was in doubt
how to act, but asked that farther time might be
allowed,' so as to hear from Mr. Marsh, who
was daily expected at Constantinople. Tht
Auslrians gave until last Saturday, the 2 J of
July. Uthtr letters come lrom Constantinople,
but slill Capt. Ingraliam was in doubt, and alter
a tittle conversation vviui me consul, ine cap
tain and Consul went on board the Austrian
Lrig-of-war to see Martin Kosta. After some
conversation, Martin Kosta demmded protec
tion fiomthe American flag. .Capt. Ingraliam
then told him he should have it. The Captain
and Consul returned on- board of our ship, and
the Captain sent word to the Austrian that he
demanded Martin Kosta by four o'clock in tho
evening. After this was known tremendous
excitement -spread throughout the ship; til I hands
were called to quarters to make preparations for
action the big" gun were loaded, cutlasses,
small-arms, boarding-pikes, and everything ready
for an engagement. The Surgeons brought out
their instruments, rady to cut ulf legs, patch up
wounds, etc. The shore was crowded with
jople to witness the engagement, ns they
thought bloody work was going to take place.
The news spread like vvilJtira throughout
Smyrna, and the people were us muL-h enciled
as we were. Delegations came off to the ship,
to see if something could not be done to prevent
an action. After four or five hours happily
for all parties-the American and Austrian
Consuls came to a compromise that is, the
Austrian Consul, who had full control of the
man, consented that Martin Kosta should be
delivered up into the hands of the Freuch Con
sul, who consented to take charge of him, until
everything was fully settled by the two Gov
ernments as to who had claim to the man. Well,
after this was settled, of course we all breathed
much freer than we did before. No doubt but
many lives would have been lost on both sides.
Although our guns arc much larger than the
Austrians', still at the neer quarter we Intended
lighting their guns wouid have been just as
destructive a ours. The Austrian force con
isted of one brig of sixteen guns, one schoouer
f 'en guns, and three mail sieamers, which
would no doubt have assisted iu the engagement.
So yon tee their force was much larger than
ours.
Tclegriphic dispatches to the St. Louis pil
fers give the following additional particulars by
the America :
FaASaronr, 30tl. It is said that Austria
inttnds not only to demand reparation from the
United !t.iti for tl Smyrna affair, but insists
lhat the Forto shall immediately procure the
extradition ol Kosta. St. Petersburg Idlers say,
that when he tVir hfnrd of the Kosta atl'..ir, he
adised .Ausiru to settle the tlitlVcuhy easily, it
Cossible, and to do anj thing rath, r than give the
'idled St'atci a pretence lo interfere in tlie af
fair of Europe.
Dl-sjwtol.es under dale of AiigtM I4di, from
Washington U the New York Herald, state
that the Secretary of Stale has committed him
self to the position that the filing of a declaration
tif an intention to become a citizen of the Lniled
Slices, ti.titles tl individual to the protection
of this government. Mr. Murcy, it is said,
takes the ground lhat ihey ure in the samo po
silion as children born jiere, who although thej
cannat vote or hold pnqserly till they are twenty-one
yevs oil, are still, during their ndnorify ,
unquestionably entitled to the protection of the
Vnitcd Slates. Should this position be Ukm.
Ihe ILrahi's correspondent thinks lhe release ol
Kusta will be imperatively demanded by our
governing nt. Thus the Kosta quest ion is likely
lo assume u more important character than was
first an'icieatcd. w . .

Mr. lTm, Stewart, of Tayson. III., sent us,
this morning-, a lot of peaches and apples which
we hove never seen surpassed in quality iH any
market. I le hat. over seven: v-fii varieties, f the
apple. Among those we received this morning,
were the Maryland Codlin, Summer tVrmain,
Jersey Sweeting, Sfinincr Queen, Maiden's
Blush, lW,i and While gh ccpnose. There
were also some fine large specimens of the Bart
lelt Tear. Among Mr. Stewart's varieties or
Teaches are the following: Early ork, Early
Rose, end Red Rare-ripe.
Those who want Some of the best flavored
apples and peaches, they ever tatcd, should pay
a visit to Mr. Stewart' wagon before the pres
ent load is all said out. If you should be too
late, save your dimes till he sends over again.
Extra fine fruit is one of the advantages we
are to realize Trom opening communication with
our Payson neighbors.
It may be well enough to call to mind in this
connection, that Mr. Stewart has a large and
valuable nursery.
Death or a Sis-vta or Charity. Ano
ther of the Nisi era of Charity has fallen a vic
tim to the prevailing epidemic. Sister Fere
grina, lifted twenty-two yearn, died on Tuesday
night at the Charity Hospital. Another of the
Sisters is sick, and is not expected to recover.
New Orleans Crescent.
It is remarkable that the Sisters escape so
well as they do when there are prevailing and
destructive diseases. At such times, when dis
ease and death ure spreading terror through a
community, u is their mission to hover like min
istering angels around the bedside of the sick
and dying. Vi'hcn the cholera raged so fear
fully in St. Louis, their self-sacrificing, patient,
untiring devotion to the cause of humanity ex
cited gratitude and general admiration. Vet, as
if providentially protected, few if any Sisters of
Charity fell victims to the prevailing disease.
rViMis or the Sfibits i.h Stria. The
Sheik Mivhir is a personage of acquirements ;
he has a store of history and literature ; his con
versation is superior to that of his countrymen ;
and he has, to complete the superiority, the fame
of n wonder-worker, and the advantage of inter
view with the spirits of another world I Who
can resist such proofs of power as these? lie

sons sitting opposite to ech other, which, on
the recital of certain passages taken indiscrimi
nately from the Koran and the Psalms of David,
will move spontaneously round, to the astonish
ment of all beholders. A stick, at his bidding,
will move unaided from one end of the room to

be cr.rriod to a considerable distance. A double
locked door will unlock itself. But the follow
ing trick seems to us the strangest of all : On
two earthenware jars being placed in opposite
corners of a room, one empty and the other
filled with water, the empty lar, on the recital
of certain passages, will move across the room ;
the full jar will of itself pour its contents into
tho empty one, which will return to the place

The Rlcent Fatal Dui:l im South Caro
lixa. Our c.rmiiuenls on this uffair, so far,
have been the means of gelling us reliable in
formation concerning its particulars. We have
been thus favored with a sight of reliable letters
from Charleston, from which we galuer that
Mr. Legare was engaged to a young lady in
Columbia. Her fi'ieiids inquired of Dunovan
what was the character and habits of L ? This
coming lo his cars, he inquired of D. what he
had answered, und found that he had spoken
favorably of him; but no satisfied with a ver
bal statement, lie demanded H in wilting, which
was refused. Li ''.ire challenged on this refusal.
The distance wi.s twelve paces. Legare tired
at the word "one," and missed; Dunovan fired
at tlie word "two," mid killed his antagonist.
Tho survivor was wholly unskilled in the ue
of lhe pistol, having never before had anything
to do with a duel. Legare, on the contrary,
was notoriously a crack shot, having, a few
days before the n flair came olf, in praclisinfr,
placed forty-eight out of fifty balls ii. a card at
the word. He became very nervous on start-i""4
nig lor the ground, and remarked that he felt a
presentiment that he wnnld fall, notwithstanding
his skill with the pislel. He was formerly in
lhe navy as a midshipimn, from which he was
ili-misM'.l, it is sail, for running a sword
through a marine. Washington Slar, Aug. 14.

hinted that the other ministers, when the pro
