Uitm Disasters Lou ef Property and
Lift on th Lakes in 1852 The Buffalo Ex
press publishe. a statement, prepared oy
Capt. G. W, Bounds, Agent of the North
western Insurance company, detailing the
..loss of life and property on the Lakes during
- the past year. ' The loss of property is large,
being some $260,000 greater than the pre
, vious year. The loss of life is also large,
Capt. R. puts it at 390, which is probably
considerably under tho actual number. Many
persons, who were competent to judge, put
the number lost on theAlanticaa high as
300.- -
' The total loss of property is put down at
$993,659. , Most of this occurred on Lake
Erie, .. In closing the sad account, Capt. R.
says: .-;' '
- "Of the two hundred and twenty-nine dis
asters here detailed, seven occurred in the
month of April, nineteen in May, twenty
four in June, fifteen in July, sixteen in Au
gust, twenty-one in September, twenty-sev-en
in October, eighty-fire in November, (55
in one gale of the 11th and 12th,) and fifteen
in December.. In many instances the a-1
' mount ot losses as above stated have been
' matters of estimate, as many must necessa
rily be; but much pains and care have been
taken to procure, in each case, the opinion
of competent men who were most familiar
' with the circumstances. Regarding the loss
of life by the steamer Atlantic, there are va
rious opinions her agents and proprietors
contending it did not exceed one hundred
and fifty, while many who were somewhat
familiar with the circumstances, set it as
high as three hundred, and some even higher.
The former I deem somewhat - under the
mark, and the latter much above. ' The a
gents can no doubt tell quite correctly how
many went on board of her, but no one can
tell how any were carried ashore from her
. by the propeller" .
" Heavy FokgeRt. On the 14th inst., at
Cincinnati, a man clad in the garb of a Ken
tucky drover, with a pair of saddle bags un-
1 der his orm,' presented at the counter of the
' Ohio Life Insurance and Trust Company
Bank, two checks one drawn on Ellis and
Morton, Bankers and Exchange Broker, at
the corner of Walnut ond Third streets, and
, -purporting to It signed by Evans &. Swift,
Pork Packers, for $7,500; and another on
, the Merchants' and Traders' Branch of the
' State Bank of Ohio, purpirting to be signed
by S. Davis, Jr., &. Co., (also extensive pork
packers,) for $7,321 65. These he desired
. to sell at the bank for specie, and he did so;
the money was paid him in gold; he took his
leave, and has not since been seen! '
' 1 No suspicion was excited until Friday lust,
when Ellis and Morton discovered thut the
account of Evans arid Swift with them was
overdrawn, and pn applying to them, the
check was ascertained to be a forgery!
When this information was obtained, it was
remembered that both checks had been pre
sented by the' same person! and on investi
gation, the other, too, was learned to be spu
rious! I , - , ,: , '-, - .. .
Ohio Legislature. The two Houses sat
on Monday and Tuesday ,but little of any inv
portance was done. Several bills were ex
mined in committee of the whole1, but we
do not notice that any final action was had
on any of general interest. .On Tuesday,
the House adjourned over until rriday, to says:
givo ' the use of their hall to- the
Teachers' Convention, when they will prob
ably adjourn over again until after New
Year's day, and thus will end the Holiday
week. It is to be hoped that, after that
time, quorums will not be so difficult to scare
up and that business will be despatched
more speedily.
Kossuth Expenses ir New Yob A day
or two since, the Board of Aldermen, of
New York city, appropriated an additional
sum of $3,800, to pay a balance on the
hoard bill of the Hunzarain and his suit at
the Howard Hotel. This makes a sum to
talof $13,739:36, equal to about $2,000 a
week for mere hotel expenses for the seven
weeks these men were feasted in that city.

is season or the year. 1 he great woolen
jobbers have taken up, weeks ago, all they
could find, and the anticipation of a further
advance in the spring is such, that some of
the jobbers have resold at a profit to specu
lators. Woolen goods are out of first
ands, though not' out of market in' like
anner as the raw material itself is mostly
the hands or speculators,who have bought
up the stock,' anticipating large profit from
the necessities of the manufacturers. Stocks
of cotton domestic goods continue low, and
prices keep tending upward, and seem' dis
posed to reach a much higher point,' under
the influence of a large and increasing con
sumption. It is a common remark among
dry goods houses that there Is no knowing
here prices will go. t hese circumstances
are encouraging to importers, and our im
ports will be very large in the coming
season. ' The rise in prices abroad is
not sufficient to check the orders. Con.
sumption is good, at a much higher level of
prices. The country is rich. - Money a-

In answer to a circular issued in 1837, by
Levi Woodbury, Secretary of the Treasury,
requesting information in regard to the pro

in the United States, Prof. Morse stnted,
among other things, that he presumed five
words could be transmitted in a minute; and
now, only sixteen years subsequent to that
dute, the average performance of Morse's in

which i. about thirty times the estimated a
