Destruction op ar Old House A
Reminiscence. In Norfolk last week, a three
story brick houso on Little water street,
built in 1804, was destroyed by fire. The
Norfolk Herald says:
It wa.in this house that a shocking trage
dy occurred in 1800. Two gamblers, broth
ers, ofthe namo of Davis, rented tho third
story for the purpose of keeping it pharo ta
ble. One night nn Itulian, whose name we
believe wa. Colminl, (Coalminer, as he was
commonly called,) visited this establishment
and meeting with extraordinary luck, final
ly broke tho bank. The Duvisc. and an
other of their fratornity charged him with
cheating; ho protested his innocence, but it
was to no purpose. They attempted to
seize him, but ho broko from thorn and fled
down a narrow dark stairway, ail three in
closo pursuit. On tho- second landing he
stcnnoil aside, unporceived, and as each pas
sed him on tho right. In the dark, ho gavo
him a fatal slab with a stiletto in mo ten
side, and pushed him down .the next flight.
The two Davises were mortally wounded
and died within 24 hours; their companion
lingered several weeks and diod also. The
Italian escaped.

Col. Medill. Our attention is directed
to the following in last week's Eagle:
"This is not his first attack upon our fellow-citizen,
Col. Medill. Last year, just on
the eve of the election, he was charged with
drunkenness, and almost every other moral
and political sin; and what was its effect!
Why, even the Whigs were indignant at the
foul aspersion, cast upon one of their most
honored citizens; and the Whig township of
Hocking hurled back the vilo slander, at the
ballot-box, and gave Col. Medill 81 majority,
and .welled hi. majority jn this county to
The implication is that we made the charge
of Drunkenness against Col. Medill. That
is false, but no matter. He ran a few votes
ahead of his ticket, by pcr.onollylporsuading
a few Whig, to voto for him, and treating
every one whose supporthe thought he could
gain in that way. That charge will not be
denied. If he is satisfied with the Eagle
calling it out, we are perfectly .0; and if any
more is wanted, we have them on hand.
The attack that was made on him by some
Temperance men, did notinfluenco one vote
cither way. One thing i. certain, no man
begged harder for votes or used more efforts
to procure them, than did the "honorable"
candidate for Lieut. Governor of tho great
Statjof Ohio.
National Washington Monument. A
Contribution from Turkey. The Washing
ton Republic contains a letter recently re
ceived at tho office of the Monument, ad-
dressed to Mr. Whittlesey, by John P,
Brown, Esq., the American Dragoman at
Constantinople, from which it appears that
tho Sultan of Turkey, Abd-al-Mnjid, intends
to contributo n block of marble for insertion
in the shaft of the National Monument, in
token of his admiration ofthe character and
respect for the memory of the Father of our
country. It seems that when the lato Turk
ish agent, Amin Bey, was in Boston, Mr
Winthrop presented him with a copy of his
address, delivered on the occasion of laying
the corner-stone ofthe monument, nnd that
the Sultan having read it, and be!n struck
with admiration and respect for the charac
ter of Washington, has determined to con
tribute a block of marble to hi. monument
Mr. Brown, in communicating the fact, says:
This marble i. from Byzantium, the most
ancient of republics, and from the city of
Constant ine, as an ottering trom tnesucccs
sor of the Mahomedan caliphs and the Otto
man sultans-from the most illustrious sove
reign of the race of eastern princes, illustri
ous both for the great nobleness and magna'
nimity of hi. character, ond for the exertion,
which he is making to promote the prosperi
ty or his country and his subjects; it win, 1
am confident, give satisfaction to the Amer
ican people. It will contain the cypher of
tho Sultan, ond a proper inscription, and be
sent to your care for the association.

descend, to deceive naturalized voters.
From Col. Medill down to his contemptible

low for tiiem to engage in, if they suppose
that, by it, they can keep the ear. of the
naturalized citizens closed against any ar

remark, relative to the Mexican Churchea
and the offer made him by citizen, of Mexi
co to assume the reign, of Government, we
give in full:
My honorable friend who ha. addressed
you in such eloquent term. a. almost to de
ter me from attempting to speak, has refer
red to some scenes that occurred in Mexico,
to one or two of which I beg leave to avert.
He ha. spoken of the protection extended to
the churches, he might have added to the
persons and property of all. I had the warm
thanks of the 'Archbishop of that country
for the protection given to' the church and
also those of his people; I had hi. affection,
his thanks, and his blessing. He wa. an aged
man, then cighty-flve year, of age, and is
now gone to In. long home. I spoke to him
about the pictures with which the churches
were ornamented; they were copies and
originals by the first masters of Spain; the
lormer couia not De uiBLiiiguisntru ujr a tun-
noi.senr from the originals. He supposed
that I had a fancy for some of them, and I
must soy I had a lurking wish to bring some
home, for public buildings not for private
rse. I intimated such purpose, and he said
if I chose to select fiteen ortwenty he would
assist me in selecting duplicates, one of
which might be retained for Mexico. I went
home ond thought of the matter. "If I take
these pictures for churches at home," thot'
I, "it would be like taking irom reierio pay
Paul." If I take twenty, why notother offi
cers take pictures in proportion! 1 came to
the conclusion not to take one: nor was there
a picture I am confident, taken by any A
merican officer or American soldier. They
were all left as we fouud them untouched
and undamaged. Applause.
One word more about myself, my friends.
My friend has adverted to the;propositionsecn
floating about in the public papers I have
nb where seen it correctly stated that an
offer was made to remain in that country
and e-overn it. The impression which gen
erally prevoils that tho proposition emanated
from Congress, is. nn erroneous one the
overture, were made me by private citizen.
men of wealth and prominence. During
our atay in Mexico and other cities, a sys
tern of government and police was estab
lished, which, as the inhabitants themselves
confessed, gave security for the first time,
perfect and absolute security, to persons and
property. About two-fifthsof all the branch
es of government, including nearly a major
ity 01 tne memoers 01 vonj;r?s mm hid i-
ecutive, were quite desirous of having that
country annexed to ours. They knew mat
unon the ratification ofthe treaty of peace,
nineteen out ot twenty 01 tne persons oe-
bnains to the American Army would .tana
disbanded, and would be absolutely free from
all obligations to lemain in the army anoth
er moment. It was entirely truo of all the
new regiments called regulars and eiirjit out
often ofthe rank and tile ot the old regi
ments. After the war waS over, the govern
ment overwhelmed u. with reinforcements
after there was no possibility of fighting a
nother battle. When the wor commenced
we had but one-fourth the force which we
needed. The Mexicans know that the men
in my army would be entitled to their dis
charge. They supposed, if they could ob
tain my services. I would retain these twelve
or fifteen thousand men and that I could
ensily obtain ona hundred thousand more
from home. Tho h"po was, that it would
immediately causa annexation. They of
fered me one mflli'n of dollars, as a bonus,
with a salary of fjL'50,000 per anmtm; ond
five responsible individuals ofl'ored to become
security in ony bank in New York, which I
might nome. It would be so arranged that I
might get it in five days. They expected
that annexation would be brought about in
a few years; or if not, that I could organize
the finances and straighten the complex af
fairs ot that government. It was understood
that nearly a majority of Congrers was in
favor of annexation, and that it was only
necessary to publish t prorunciamentolo that
effect to secure the object. Wo possessed
all the army of that country and occupied
every fortress; wo had their cannon found
ries and powder manufactories had posses
sion of their ports of entry, ond might easily
have held them in our possession, if this ar
rangement had gono into effect. A publish
ed pronunciamento would have brought
Congress right over to us, nnd with these
fifteen thousand Americans holding the for
tresses ofthe country, all Mexico would not
have disturbed us. We might have been
there to this day if it hod been necessary.
But gentlemen I loved iny distant home,
ira.1 not in favor of the annexation of Mex
ico to my wen country! Mexico has about
eight millions of inhobitans, and out of these
eight millions, there are not more than one
million who are of the pure European blood.
The Indians and a mixed race constitute a
bout. seven millions; they aro exceedingly
inferior to our own. Asa lover of my coun
try, I was opposed to mixing up that race
with our own. This was tho first objection
on my part, to that proposition. May I not
plead some little love of home, which give me
the preference for the soil of my own country
and its institutions? I came back to die un
der theso institutions, and here I am.
