Hy the Neapolitan steamer Francesco I, we receive an account of the breaking forth of Mount .Etna : " rite mountain liad been lor some days heavily capped with dense clouds; some rumblings were heard at times resembling distant thunder, and many persons, especially on the west side, near Ilronte, imagined they lelt at intervalsslight shocks of earthquake. On Saturday* about midnight, several violent explosions were henrd, and lire was soon seen to ascend from near the mouth of the old crater, the at re am of Ian gradually increased in extent, and took a course towards the town ol Hronle ; luckily a few hillocks to its left served to turn its direction, which tln*n flowed on towards the post road to Palermo. On Monday, this stream of li quid lire had attained ilie destructive tireadth oi upwards of two miles ; it still flowed on, destroying C everything in its path. The routi to Palermo is ^ closed up, filled with burning lava. The sight is aw- ^ ful. grand, beautiful, yet terrific beyond description. ^ It bids fair to be the most inagiiificent eruption of the last century. Pray heaven it may not he more s$ destructive, as yet its damages have been confined to a few houses and vineyards. Present State of the British Navy.?The V act uul number of ships, of all classes, belonging to { the lloyul Navy, at present in commission, is 225, being 8 less than lust year. We have, it appears, 11 line of battle ships, being 7 lees than last year : 27 frigates?5 less than last year ; 11:$ sloops and ~ other vessels?3 less than last year; and 74 steamers ?10 more than last year. These are distributed in 1 the following manner :?At home, :$ line of battle ships, 2 frigates, 33 sloops, and 35 steamers; Ireland, 1 line of hattle slup, 2frigates, 2 sloops, and 11 steamers; Mediterranean, 4 line of battle ships, so ({frigates, 7 sloops, nnd 10 steamers; East India n< and Cluna. 2 line of battle ships, 3 frigates, 2? an sloops, ami 3 steamers; North America and West hi Indies, 1 line of battle ship, 3 frigates, 13 sloops,and |>r 3 steamers; Cape of Good Mope and Brazils, (> Iri- J1' gates, 17 sloops, and 4 steamers; Pacific, 4 frigates, 3 sloops, and 2 steamers; Coast of Africa, 1 frigate, ?_ 1(1 sloops, and 4 steamers; Lakes of Canada, 1 sloop, and 2 steamers; and there are 2 sloops surveying in Australia. The total of all classes, in commission and ordinary, is upwards of 450. th The Army.?It appears from a parliamentary return that in January last there were 73,960 ofheers and men employed in the public service in Great m Britain and Ireland and in the colonies (exclusive bt r ..r ...i.;nu OQ i-r?> ........ f!*ant .i. i>l mum;, ui miiuu .iuiii...ti nuc 111 i_<i<rin in Britain and in Ireland, 40,794 in the colonies. In hi lrclund alone there were 15,522; the return in "! question shows the numbers of the army stationed *! in Ireland from the year 17!)2 to 1*42. In 1792 tlie j'j number of officers and men in Ireland was 11,861 ; fl in 1822, 22,786; in 1828, 24,918; in is:5<), 18,431; in 1835. 19,872 ; and in 1842, 15,6410. In December qi last in Ireland there were 1,086 officers and men ol the royal artillery, tec. making nearly 17,000 soldiers h< to a population in Ireland, according to the census Kl of 1841, of 8,175,239. Statistics of the Turp.?During the last senson K the cross value of the stakes competed for in Eng- a land, Scotland, and Wales amounts to no less than w ?196,471. The number of horses which have start- ti ed for this amount is 1460. One horse alone (Goth- 'J' erstone) has won the large umount of ?13,790.? 'j Colonel Peel (brother of the Prime Minister) has ' been one of the most fortunate owners of race hoises, c having won nearly ?14,000 with fourteen horses. 0 Lord G. Bentinck started twenty-seven different is horses, which have won nearly ?5000. Lord a Eglinton has also been very fortunate in winning a' stakes for which he has competed, three of his f horses having carried off prizes to the value of Ji ?4000. The above statement is exclusive of for- J* feits in private matches, cups, tec., the value of j which cannot be precisely ascertained. ., A few days ago an application was made to the ?t Isle of Man Court of Chancery to have a cockatoo, K two cats, and a dog sold, being part of the eflects jj arrested under a petitioner's action. It was alleged :! that these animals were so expensive to keep, that u before the decree could be had, their maintenance would amount to more than they would probably fi sell for. The Court ordered the sale as prayed for. The application caused great amusement in Court, ai -Times. Incendiarism has increased to an alarming extent J' in the agricultural districts of England. Hardly a i, night has passed, for the last month, in Herts, Es- t< sex, Cambridgeshire, and Bedfordshire, without T the sky being lighted up by some awful conHagru- v tion. 0 A socialist, named Joseph Taylor, has been coin- g milted for trial at the Lancashire Assizes, on tl a charge of poisoning his f ather, his brothers, and I his sisters. |> Pleasures of ax Irisu Editorship.?The Ne- {j nagh Guardian, a steady conservative paper, states | that Kempson, its proprietor, has received a signi- t( ficant notice, that unless he change his politics, e. he may calculate on having his brains blown out. n The contribution from Liverpool towards the Anti-Corn Law Fund of ?100,000, amounts to ?5569, and is daily increasing. k Contracts are udvertised for in all the English c papers to raise the wreck of the United States 8 frigate Missouri.

It is not improbable that tea will be extensively s cultivated in the Ueyrah Lhoon by an English joint-stock company.

The pinner was brought into Court nearly an hour previous.? u took a seat by the stove, at the upper end of the room, (, ;J talked to several persons wlio v.'eie permitted to fee m before the court assembled. During the whole of the oceedings, lie has maintained the calm and equa- w e deportment, looking constantly at the witnesses, and cj irdly ever communicating with fiis counsel. The court room bus been full all day, but not so dense- ()r crowded us we have seen it on some previous occa- | his. 1 The following is the testimony adduced : Dr. Potisam. examined by District Attorney.?i visited e house of the prisoner ntter the lire, and saw the body , the woman lying on the cot with u good deal ol feathers ' td stull'under it. It was as describeuby Dr. Rogers; one re ball was burnt, and the tongue protruded; there was ) frothy mucus about the mouth; the feet and legs were lrnt badly; the muscles were burnt olf; the left Teg was m io most charred, but both were considerably burnt; the vv uin was healthy, and not congestive; there was hut little w lid in the brain; we next examined the lungs anil the w iscera of the tliorax, the lungs were full - appeared to hi! . stcndeil with blood; the riglit side of the heart contained looil; the left side was free; we found about a wine glass 1 ill in the right. Ji one Ki st.?Was that a largo quantity or a small a aautity I .

"" ""vm ? ii ? mi | sstrie juice, that was nothing moro than ordinary, and t)( pon the whole, I should say, it was u healthy stomach; e examined for intemperance particularly, and found no |( aces; they would have uppeured in the stomuch, liver ' ml hi Rill, hut we could not detect it; if the person had J ied during a debauch, and had not been a habitual | runkard, I should say that wo could have detected the ^ -aces of it; we should also expect to find the countenance hanged; it would be full; 1 know of 110 case from my own j( bservntion in which drunkards have not exhibited; there i a uniform difference between death from strangulation ud from sull'ocation; in the former case, we find marks ^ bout the lier.k; if the rope is placed aliove the cartilage of , le throat the tongue protrudes; it below, not; strangu jj, ition generally produces apoplexy, death from sull'oca t(] on arises from drawing or placing a wet cloth over the loutli or nose, and from the inhaling of noxious gas; , could not tell what produced death from the mere np- .. enrauce of the body. If I found u person dead in the ml, l should take It that it was a death from noxious ases ; 1 saw no exhibition in the body externally or in- ' irnally, which would account for the cause of death with le exception of what caused sonic to have the opinion . mt she died from suilocation. A pillow might have been sj led, and it would leuvu no mark or evidence. District Attohxkv.?Now us to the burning, was the re communicated before or after death I Witiskss.?The fire must have been communicated ' Iter death. I have no doubt on that subject. Crait-tzaminril.?I have been in pructico in this city '' iven years, and liuve attended one post mortem cxami- J1 ation in the last year, and three or four heforo that. One 1 efore this with the view of living a witness. Never at- ir nUe.t nnfi Wforo at u person wfco died of unifocal ion. p. 'his woman's face was calm, easy, mid natural. If the roman hail died of intoxication, the brain would lie muie r' r loss congestive. The blood in the lungs was dark, and f a fluid character ; the liver was healthy, but l)r I to- j, eis examined that more particularly ; I never witnessed ! lie post mortem examination of a person who died drunk ' should think this woman had not eaten lor six or eight s' ours. Lienor intoxicates more easily when the stomach I devoid of food ; I should decline giving any opinion us ' > the possibility of a person dying from inhaling alcohol. j u death from hanging, congestion of the brain is cxliihi- . jd afterwards. The protrubaranee of the tongue in such J ases depends on the position of the rope. Suffocation j lay arise from accident ; it is frequent in the case of iumts who get in a position from which they are unable to xtrirate themselves ; it is not impossible that a person ' costly drunk might do so ; it is probable, lint 1 never ' mew of such a case ; a drunken person could make an '' flbrt to extricate himself; in ease of death from noxious 1 ;ases,thc tongue is more or less prof nidod,and more or less t rothy mucage appears about the mouth. In case ofdwath ? rom ordinary suilocation, the protrusion of the tongue is lot common. * Q.?Do you know of any case on record where it was ' ound ? 1 A.?I do not recollect of any. t <1.?Is it not impossible to tell from a mere postmortem ' ixamination, if a person died from suffocation or not' A.?It is very diflictflt if not impossible to tell without 1 aking the surrounding circumstances into consideration li-?What are the distinctive marks of burning before <" Irath' r A.?Blisters and a red line which is very perceptible; I " hould say blisters always I efore, and very seldom after c leath; I never recollect of any, and think they don't ex- s st; I don't think the red mark disappears after death, in ' (allocation l?y violence the marks thereof might remain. 1 Thu District Aitoiinly here said that he proposed 0 o show by this witness that two or three months before * he death of the wife the prisoner had made threats against 1 ler. This was the point laid over from last night. The t earned gentleman cited several authorities. ' Judge Krv i said lie wished to have the precise] words t if the otter of the public prosecutor. The District said he proposed to prove by > he witness that on or before the 1st of July, the prisoner ' ruelly beat his wife, and stabbed her under a threat to ' (ill her. t Counsel for the prisoner here interfered, and did not i visli this offer made before the jury. The Dm ric r Ai tokm.y said he had stated the worst of i t. tie alio proposed to show that during that month she r id not live with him.

By District Attorskv.?If the fire had commenced urning at the foet of the woman during life, there would N are been marks of anguish after death ; we discovered ' io such marks. I cannot tie positive under oath that the 1 urns were after death, hut it is my opinion. ('. It. AiirtiF.R, ex-coroner, examined?I was railed by ( ustice Matscll to hold nn inquest on this liody; I found it i ii) ing on a cot on the lloor ; tlie legs were burnt consi- | erably, the things not so much, the hair otf the head, | lie arms and the hand?also the left eye, hut not oil | he lid. I came to the conclusion, from the appearance i if the liody and the burns, that the (Ire had been applied | ifter dentil ; 1 did not see the internal examination ; the tomach was brought to me; I did not think it a perfectly icallhy stomach. I have seen a great many cases of mining, mid 1 never saw one where the pink appearance vas about if the burning took place before death. They night have heen removed by the application of fire after leath; if the parts had burnt up. It is almost impossible 0 say if respiration or circulation ceases first ; the blood md fluids will of course gravitate, but until pulsation eases, I should not say the person was dead. That liody I night have been us much burnt, without the application I 1 inflammable matter, in about half nn hour. It depends | in the application of tire or the intensity of heat; 1 should | ay all the destruction I saw there might have been i :au?od in half an hour ; if the lire had been applied before leath, the countenance would have axhIWfad (OBM tr .lees mil the tongue lacerated ; such a death would lime been igoni/ing. even'if drunk, or in a state of apoplexy the paient would struggle against the application of heat ; I do lot consider the protrusion of the tongue a proof of duatli rom suffocation; a good deal might depend u|ion the ' neans used to accomplish it. Cross-examinnl i have seen frequent post mortem oximinations of persons who died from intoxication of two i ir three by noxious gases -none from strangulation ; | mt I remember drowning a few some also from snlfocaion. It is not a common result lor the tongue to protrude I n cases of suffocation ; we generally find the vessels of i ho brain more or less turgid ill cases of dentil from the t nhalingof noxious gnses ; the same of the lungs ; in t uses of doath from disease, there is lint little blood on the i eft side of the heart; the condition of the left tide of the mart is no indication of death from violence ; even in the s ight side, the appearances will vary in death from iiatu- r at causes ; there is no certain innik whether a person [ iisl from sufloeution by violence without the external narks art! visible ; I differ with all the witnesses as to the d \hibition of this ease being one of drunkenness ; I al- I says expect the brain to lie more or less turbid if the subnet died shortly after a debauch ; the stomach was near- e y empty, and the liijnor would tie more likely to take ef!Ct iti that state ; I can't say how long it would take to tl ass oil'; I did not see the brnin.

In cases where bodies have been burnt belore death, and the 1 inning ceases, there is a red mark ; but if the burning goes on, the ted mark is obliterated, in the case ol burning, a burn of great extent of surface will produce death, w here a burn ol great depth, but of small extent, w ill not.

My mother died of acute suffering at the age of 70, ami she exhibited u perfect composure of leutines after death, lieie the witness explained to the Court, that being in New York at the time of this uttair, he w as astonished to tind that the medical men had made a chatgeof murder from the post mortem appearances.

By Disrait i Attobnkv?I have been in this city since the (ire in this case; once aliout a week ago was at the New York hospital; saw a case of burning there; the patient was in artiivla morln\ I hav e seen a pi rson die under uu operation in Pennsylvania, and there was nu e\ibition of pain; I nnrr saw u cast whirr the i nuiifttinm r of n iltad fiti sun r.i liitiitt <1 the a/iprarav.rr of hacini; ilinl in/,mi,; i do not wish to say anything against the cause of temperance, but I do say that Dr. Scwall's plates have giosrly and ttnpardonahly exaggerated the state of the stoma li alter drinking; it is enough to make a man kill himself at once, lor he cannot git well; incases of cholera the stomach presents a pule appearance, a person who has been smothered by means ol u pillow, w ould exhibit a turgid appearanceol the brain, and also of the lungs; ul the heart 1 could not speak; 1 have heard the di sruption of the luirn on the c> r, and think it might liav e been iloin during life l>y a spark. It is laid dew n by the best medicals writer that the application of hcntjto the body ulvvuv s produces a red mark; I could not suy what was the cause of the mark ou the check which has been spoken of; it might have been from a spark, or a Hake, lot I know II at such things will ily into strange places; I knew once that it burnt a man's foot when lie had his shoe on.
