to be in commotion. An attack oo a grand
scale, was made upon Shanghai, by the 1m

having fired the suburbs. Pekin dates to

and south of the important city of Tientsin,
the port of Pekin.nnd about sixty miles from
it, situated on the peiho, at the junction of
tho Grand Canal. Tho Chinese assert that
the Insurgents had possession of the place,
and the same is reported at Canton, receiv-
. ed by an expro-s on, the 14ih inst., in ihir-
. teen dayB from I'ekinj and also- that two of
the Emperor's Uncles were at the head of

an Aspinwall paper says:
"From a review of tho survery which we

Yet though thy winds are loud and bleak,
Thou art a welcome mouth to me.
For thou, to northern lands, an,
The glad and glorious sua dost bring,
And thou hast y ined the gentle (rain .
And west', the gentle name of Spring. ,
And, in thy reign of blast and storm,
Smiles many a long, britrht, sunny day;
When the changed wind are. soft &. warn,.
And heaven put on the blue of May.
Than sing aloud the gushing rills,
And the full springs from frost set free; -
That, brightly leaping down the hills,
Are just set out to meet the sea.
The years departing beauty hides, .
Of wintry storm, tb. aullen threat;
But in thy sternest frown abides
A look of kindly promise yet.
Thou bring'st the hopo of those calm slues
Ana tliat sort time of etinnv showers:
When the wide bloom, that on earth lies,
Seems of a'bnghter world than ours.
A Fearful Scene. The telegraph ha.
alluded to tho burning down of the Eclectic
Medical College at Rome, N. Y., on Sun
day last. We subjoin somo further partic
ulars, by mail:
After the fire wa. .ubdued an awful and
disgusting sigh', was presented in the dis
secting room, liodics and portions of bodies
lay scattered around limbs, ribs, skull, in
tcstines, and slices of human flesh in great
profusion, as though just dissected, met the
eyes of . those who Had entered the room
while the horrible effluvia from the burning
of human flesh in two lirga stoves in the
room, sickened those who ventured near.
The physicians speedily disappeared.
These sights enragod those who were
present, and immediately commenced a
scene of riot difficult to describe. The
windows were raised and broken, and many
portions of bodies thi own out upon the
crowd below. Among the rest a small cof
fin, was thrown from the fifth stjry window
down upon tho tow-path and burst open by
tho concussion, when tho body of a child,
apparently six or seven years of sire, with a
bead almost as largo as n peck measure was
exposed to view tho Coffin being broken to
pieces. Ths sheriff and his officers had
great diflic'ulty in dispersing the mob.
