Her news is of a most Important charac ter. The Vienna Congress had definitively broken up on the 21st, the Russian plenipotentiary having re jected the last proposition of Englwd and France re lative to the limitation of the Russian naval lorces in the Black Sea. Lord John Russell and M. Dronyn de l'Huys had taken leave of the other members of the conference and were about to return home. All hope of peace arising from this quarter la therefore at an end. To the fortunes of war we mast now look for a solution ot the questions which ware agitated at the conference. To the energetic prosecution of this alternative the allies seem to be at least applying themselves. The long talked of and frequently postponed attack { npon Sebastopol commenced on the 9th. We have ki the time selected for it a cue to the weather ob servations which have, for some time past, formed so prominent a feature In Lord Raglan's des patches. We are told that the fire opened at 5 A. M., in a storm of wind and rain which drove the smoke of the gnns towards the Russian line, so as to prevent the enemy from 'taking range of the beliefs batteries. What a triunph this practical result must have been for the much abused and patient veteran who com mands the Enclish forces. If he has not shown eminent strategical skill, he has at least dcm?n strated the utility of his weather gauge. The results of the first day's tire are stated to have been advantageous to the besieger?. The batteries on the Mamelon tower were si'enced; the Redan continued to tire only six guns, and the Flag staff battery was silenced by the French. In a tele graph message to St. Petersburg, dated the 15th, Prince Gorts .-balroff asserts that the ltttle damage that had been effected up to that day had been entirely repaired, and that the place waa in as com plete a state of defense as before. In a despatch from General Canrobert, it wculd seem from the terms used that tbe besiegers had effect ed a lodgment in the Gar Jen batteries ; but his language on this point is so vague that some donbt exists with regard to the fast. We are the less disposed to credit it, because, being one of tbe chief objects to be gained by a general assault, more importance would have beea attached to it in tbe French General's report. Every efi'ort is still being made by the belligerents to increase their effective strength. Some of the best regiments of the Turkish army have been trans ported by sea from Eupatoria to Sebastopol ? the Egyptian division, a fine body of men, had been despatched to the Crimea in all haste from Constan tinople, and the Sardinian contingent was imme diately expected. The Russian garrison had been strengthened by powerful reinforcements? fresh troops having beer, sent to replace those which had been enfeebled by fatiune or sicklier. The vb-it of Louis Napoleon to the English Court had been as melodramatically effective as most of the other carefully deliberated nmeni'ntsof that remarkable personage. By his ex?re=s desire the wcepticn of the imperial couple was as public and as solemn as the unanimity of all classes could make it. Tie once despised exile no doubt desired to make his English det-actors s'ultity themselves by the in consistency of their conduct. If such was his ob ject, be was amply gratified. There never wai seen an j thing like tbe enthusiasm manifested during his brief sojontn in the English capital. The London Timu, once the most violent and inveterate of hia serailant", devoted, d?y alter day. ooiumn after co lumn of the mrbt fulsome psnegyric to his glorifica tion. It would be worth while to place some of these extravagant effuslcnB in juxtaposition with the famous article in which " The Thunderer" for merly caricatured the adventurer who attempted to invade France with a live eagle and a couple of dozen of cbami?gri? ! From a statement in the London Morning Hrratd, which we publ'sh in another column, it wonld appear that it has been decided with the English ministry that 'he French Emperor is to take the commr.nd of the allied armies in the Cri mes. We learn from our private correspondence that, in his letters from Vienna to his ministerial col leagues, Lord John Russell has constantly impressed upon them the necessity of combining a compliance with tbe pouolar demand for searching reforms with tbe utmost vigor ard energy in their administration of the War I>epaifment. It is well understood in the clnb circles of London that it is hi* lordship's opinion that withou* such combination one of two things will follow? either that the war spirit will die ont from conviction of government inefficiency, or that when 'he war shall be brought to a conclu sion, successful or otherwise, a revolution will ensue The Austrian* seem to be carrying matters with a high band in the Principalities. Vnder the head of our foreign news will be found the account of an assasaination committed by an Austrian officer at Krajova under circumstances of the greatest brutality, the murdered man being the husband of a lady into whose presence the cffi:er endeavored to force his way. The Austrian Oenoral in com mar <1 having refused to deliver up the offender, a riot ensued, in which some hundreds were killed on both aides. The Austrian troops were driven ont of the city, ?nd at the last accounts remained en camped outside the walla. The correspondent at Rome of the London Nt w*, esmmunicaUs the details of an accident which oc curred in tbe monastery of St. Agnes, by which the l'opo, sevsral cardinals, bishops, and oivic and diplomatic functionaries, narrowly escaped being ernsbed to death. During; toe reception of the pupils ot the Propaganda College, who were admit, ted to the honor of kissing the Pope's foot, the flooring of the large lull gave way, and "all pressat, with the exception of Cardinal AntoaeBi, who clang to one of the wimdows, vera precipitated into the vault beneath. Hia Holiness escaped without In jury, bat Cardinals Marlnl and Patriri were severely hurt. The parti.ulari of the accident will be found in another column. In another colamn will be fonnd some interesting correspondence ftom Madrid, explaining the causes oi the recent tmttUts against the government, and giving some additional information concerning Cu ban ? flaiis. The Spanish government has at last succeeded in realizing a loan of 40,000,000 of reals, or about $2,000,000, sufficient to extricate it for the present out of its financial difficulties. Elsewhere will be found a letter from Horatio J. Perry, Esq., our Charge d' Affaires in Spain, in reply to the statements contained in the letter of one of our Washington correspondents, dated March 17, and published March 19. Mr. Perry complains that these statements are wholly inexact and at the same time injurious to him. He states that he never ad dressed or received any communications from Mr. Caching or Senor Calderon de la Bare a on the sub ject referred to in our correspondent's letter. He never played the spy to anybody or for anybody, and never failed in his duty to Mr. Soule as a mem ber of his legation, nor even addressed Mr. Marcy or any member of the government, either directly or indirectly, duting the time Mt. SoultS was at its head and was responsible for its transactions. When he (Mr. Perry) became directly responsible t o the goverr ment, he of course acted as in his judg ment seemed right without reference to Mr. Soultf's views. He stigmatizes as utterly falBe the assertion that while writing one thing to the Secretary of State he wrote another and a different thing to Mr. Soull, aspersing the administration and designating its c urse as treacherous and co wardly. Such state ments be ?ays should not be_made without proof; and the proof he calls for. The Paris Moniteitr publishes the conclusion of Louis Napoleon's History of the Crimean campaign. It teems to rely on the acquisition of the Austrian alliance as a sufficient recompense for all the disas ters with which the military operations of the allies have been attended. The article in the Herald of March 21, on the position of out government with regard to the pro posed abolition of the Bound dues, 'had created an intense interest in all the Baltic ports. Layard, the explorer of Nineveh, made a telling speech to the electors of Liverpool on the 23d, in which he showed op the administrative incapacity of the government In connection with the war. Before the news came to hand yesterday about 1,200 bales of cotton were Bold at full prices. After its publication no sales were made. The foreign news has not for some time exercised any influ ence upon this matket for breadstuff's, which have betn regu'ated by local Bupply and demand. Com mon and medium grades of flour were firmer. South era white wheat soid at $2 65. Indian cor a was higher, and closed at 111c. a 112?c. for mtxed, de livered, 113c. a Hoc. for Southern white, and 115c. a llGc. for yellow do. Provisions continued firm, with a fair amount of sales. To Liverpool there was not mnch doing beyond engagements of cotton, while a fair amount of shipments were being made for the continent. On Tuesday next the summer arrangements on the New Jersey Railroad will commence. Its through trains fur Philadelphia irill leave as follows, passengers taking the ferry boat on the New York side:? Mail train, 8 A. M.; Kensington express, 10 A. M.; New Jersey accommodation train, 12 M.; Express train, 4 P. M.; and Mail train, 6 p. m. Through tickets and baggage checked to Washing ton In the 8 A.M. and 6 P. M. trains. We under stand the authorities of Jersey City are about to take the necessary steps to prevent the horde of bigg age sir ushers, which Infest the railroad depots, contlnu. ing their depredations upon travellers. About noon yesterday a destructive fire took place in the saw mills of Mr. Bidwell, No. G Amity plaee, Laurens street. The flames spread rapidly, des troying the buildiDg in which the fire originated, together with No. 14, adjoining, aud damaging ether property. Tie loss is estimated at forty thousand dollars. The ladies of the Methodist Episcopal Home Mis sic nary Society of this city celebrated the eleventh anniversary of the society at the Tabernacle last evening, when the reports of its operations for the past year were read, showing very successful results. Addresses were made by Bishop Simpson, Rev. Mr* Mercien, and others. On Thursday last, an OBwego canal boat, bannd up the Noith river, with a freight valued at $40,000, Bpincg aleak, and sank near the mouth of Rondout crerk. The greater part of the freight was saved. The ju?y in the case of Johnson, on trial at Kingston, for the murder of hit wife, after being out sixteen hours, rendered a verdict of acquittal. The bill providing for tbe sale of the main line of the public works of Pennsylvania, finally parsed In the Senate cf that State yesterday. As atnsnded it fixes tbe piice at eight million dollars, and if pur chased by the Pcnnsj Ivauip, Railroad, at nine millions. The prohibitory liquor law of Michigan goes into effect cn the 14th inst. The War In Emnpi- Bombardment of St? biurtopolt At lust, the attack on Seboctopol has began. On the morniug of the 9th of April, the fire opened from the French and English batteries' and lasted until the latest advices left, which was on the 17th. Accounts differ as to its ef fect. The liritisb officers state that their fire had silenced several Russian batteries, and proved itself superior at all points to that of the city ; allowing however tliat the Russians displayed Hieat energy and courage in repairing their losses. The Russian General on the other hand declares that Seliastopol was as strong as ever at the clo*e of the sixth day of the bombard ment ; giving credit to the allies, however, for having rained a feu d'enfer upon it. In re tpect of loss, it appears to have been greater cn the side of the Russians than on that of the allies. The attach by bombardment had been ex pected for some days in the camp. It was ren dered necesinry by the approach of summer, which has improved the roads, enabled theRu? sians to pour regiment after regiment into the place, and menaced the allied camp with mala ria. That it must end in a repulse of the allies seems highly probable. Though we have no detailed statement of the Russian force in the place, we know that men and stores have been arriving for many months, and the general im pression is that the defenders outnumber the assailants. ' All that money, science, time and cnerpy can do towards rendering it impregnable has been done. On the other band, notwithstanding the reinforce ments lately received from England and France, the allied army had not reached its contemplated strength by the 9th April. Fifteen thousand bayonets was a liberal cal culation for the British army; and tho French hospitals were crowded. The prospeot is that the bembardment will eventuate in the de struction of a portion of the Ruseian works: which will immediately be erccted anew: and that it not be followed by an assault. Rut military operations at Scbastopol bear a very small proportion, in point of im portance, to the movements which have taken jlace elsewhere. Even if the allies should take that place, it is doubtful, very donbtftil. whether it could he held, and certain that the invader could go no farther. But the failure of the peace negotiations at Vienna renders its fate almost unimportant. It is now certain that the war is going to be a great war and a long war; and equally clear that it must be fought on the Rhine, in Germany, and in no outskirt of the empire. The last hope of peace destroyed, the Czar will necessarily turn his thoughts at once to the subject of offensive operations. A mere line of defcuce in a part of the empire never thoroughly Russian will not satisfy his people, or enable him to fulfil his destiny. He must turn the tables on his enemies, and having kept them in check when tht y entered his territory, must see whether they can do the like when he pours Mb Cos sacks on the Rhine. The time for half mtasures is past. Germany can no longer bestride the fence. Austria, as well as Prussia, must take the field; the first, perhaps ? though we doubt it ? on the side of the Western Powers, the latter certainly with Russia. Let people prepare to hear that Alexander is at the head of an army of 300,009 men and that his head quarters are at Coblentz. Well may the British lords In their fear and their helplessness ask Napoleon to lead their armies. It will need a giant to grapple with the foe. Napoleon has not yet given any proofs of military skill. He has never served in any army. But soldiering, unlike all other profes sions, needs no training. Many of the greatest generals the world has seen never took the tield till they found themselves at the head of thousands of men : Louis Napoleon may turn out a worthy nephew of his uncle. He has de cision, energy, courage ; what more is needed ? The war fairly begun, on thiB grand scale, with two Emperors lor generals, four first class nations at least for combatants, and the garden of Central Europe for a battle-field, people may expect events of the most startling character to follow each other in rapid succession. In #such a convulsion, nothing is impossible. The Russians may win a battle and once more dictate peace from the Tuileries. Or they may be defeated, and Berlin or Moscow a second time trampled under the heel of Frenchmen. Or disaster may beget revolution in France and England, and revolutionary governments hasten to conclude a disgraceful peace. Or the same thing may occur in Russia, and Alex ander like so many of his ancestors may be assassinated to make way for a usurper. There is no limit in short to speculation. One thing alone is certain : and that is that the war must be the greatest war the world has ever seen ; and that in proportion to the men engaged and the money it costs must be the disaster in flicted on commerce, industry and the pacific interests. The fall in consols is only a pre monitory symptom : want of money, stagna tion of trade, diversion of labor, cessation of industry are as certain to follow as the winter follows the autumn. The Kansas Qcestion and the Administra tion. ? We publish to-day a letter from Missou ri, which gives a totally different view of the rccent troubles in Kansas from that of Govern or Reeder, and his side of the question. We have now heard both sides, and the conduct of the Missourians, in striking a balance be tween the accounts of both parties, appears to be about six for one to half a dozen for the other. Read our letter from Missouri. It gives us some very interesting and curiouB facts con cerning the trials of squatter sovereignty and squatter life in Kansas. It has been said that an attempt is being made at Washington to secure the appointment of the dismissed Judge Loring, of Massachu setts, as Governor of Kansas, in the place of the present incumbcnt; but according to our latest information, Gov. Reeder has resolved to go out there again, at all hazards, to look after his land speculations. What will Mr. Pierce do? It is stated that his Cabinet are five for Reeder, viz Marcy, Guthrie, Cashing, M'Clel land and Campbell; and two for the expulsion of Reeder? Jeff. Davis aud Dobbin? both strin gent Southern men. The issue with the Presi dent is between Marcy and Davis ; and upon this question, in this shape, our amiable and accommodating Executive cannot very well carry water upon both shoulders. He must either supersede Reeder or retain him; and if he is retained he must be supported. Thus, at last, we shall be able to understand where our shuffling chief magistrate stands on the Kansas-Nebraska question. When the re peal of the Missouri compromise was first mooted he was opposed to it ; and his organ, the Washington Union, declared that it must never be touched. But the Southern Senators readily persuaded him that the repeal would make him, while, if he refused it. be would be lost, bag and baggage, in the South. So Mr. Pierce went for the repeal ; but the appoint ment of Mr. Reeder to Kansas proves that the bill was a trick upon the South. The Reeder plot for abolitionizing Kansas meets, however, with a sudden and most ominous rebuff : and our Missouri correspondent assures us that the Southern people of that State and Arkansas and Kentucky, are organizing, on a formidable scale, men and means to crush out the anti slavery societies in Kansas. The question then recurs, what will Mr Pierce do? He will, most probably, as u?ual. shuffle off and evade all responsibility, until the hostile parties moviDg upon Kansas are involved in a border and sectional war. With this most treacherous and imbecile administration at the helm, the exUtiDg state of thin^rs and the issue in Kansas are full of danger. Can't Tammany Hall do something for the relief of Mr. Pierce? Where is J< hn Cochrane now? Ten Days Grace. ? Within ten days Arch bishop Hughes has pledged himself to prove Senator Brooks the next thing to a Senator that has been guilty of lying. This, we presume, will be done by a transcript from the records of the Archbishop's church property in this city. Senator Brooks has put it down as equal to five millions of dollars in value, and the Archbishop wiil probably show that he is thus guilty of a falsehood of the magnificent proportion of at least three millions of dollars. The Archbishop threw the "vile inseet" the other day out of the window, in emulation of Uncle Toby: but we now suppose that, with the expiration of his ten days' grace, the victim will be impaled alive. Why not deliver him over fo Alderman Briggs? Temi'Kkance and the Clekov. ? We pre sume that the Rev. Mr. Chapin and Dr. Tjng will not forget the new liqnor law in their ser mocs from the pulpit to-morrow. Very well. Let them take bold ; but political harangues upon temperance in a theatre are a different thing. Let them keep out of the dirty arena of i politics, or their sacred robes must be defiled. I That's all. The New Exoland Know Nothlnos? A H;nt to the Wise.? The Know Nothings of New Hampshire and Connecticut, or a controlling majority of them, are rapidly going the way of their Massachusetts brethren, headlong into the fclaugh of abolitionism. But the recent vote upon the case of Judge Loring shows that there is a very respectable Know Nothing minority in Massachusetts, as we presume there is in the other New England States, dead against these abolition tendencies. Wo there fore throw out the hint to this conservative minority of the New Eagland American Order to come out from among the foul party ruling the roast among them, and make a common cause with the Know Nothing of New York, New Jersey, and other States, on high national principles. Thus, when the good things of the great anticipated national victory of 185G shall come to be divided, the sound and true men of New England, though in a minority, will come in for a fair share ? otherwise they will be ruled out as among the abolitionists themselves. Let the conservative Know Nothings, then, of the New England States, set up for themselves, and begin by sending a lot of independent delegates to the Philadelphia National Council that can look the Virginians in the face without blinking. It is the very best thing they can do. T H E It A T E S T NEWS. BY MAGNETIC AND PRINTING TELEGRAPHS. Trouble among the Know Nothing* of Illinois. Chicago, Hay 4, 1855.

ARRIVAL OF THREE MORE OF THE ALLEGED CON SPIRATORS FROM CINCINNATI IN CHAROE OF THE OFFICER8. Last evening, officers J. Bruen, C. C. Bruen, and Carr, of Cincinnati, artived in this city, having in custody Lorenzo Chapin, A man a Chapin, and Benjamin Earle, three of the alleged conspirators in the Martha Wash ington case, who along with Benjamin W. Kimball and others, stand indicted for having, on the 8th of January, 1852, feloniously obtained tlie signature of the officers of the Atlantic Mutual Insurance Company in thia oity to a written instrument (a policy of insurance), and thereby fraudulently obtaining the sum of $4,500 from the in surance company. The officers left Cincinnati on Wei needay afternoon at 6 o'clock, and were to be imme diately followed by other policemen, having in charge Alamand Rufus Chap n, also indictet for the same of ftnee. The accused were taken before Justice Connolly, who committed them to the Tombs for the present. [From the Cincinnati Gazette, May 3.] Benjamin A.Enrle and two of the brothers Chapin were again brought before Judge Storer yesterday morn ing, on the wiit of habeas corpus which was obtained on Monday last The original of the requisition from the Governor of New York, certified copies of the record, showing thetr Indictment in the New York court* for ob taining money on false pretences, and other papers in the ease, were produced and read. Mr. Clarke, counsel for the prisoners, did not deny the requisition or the indictment, but proposed to show, 1st. That they bad been already tried three times tor the (?ame charge. 2d. That there was no evidence before the court that false pretences were a crime in New York. 3d. that the warrants were incomplete, as they did not fully state the crime, and were in no way amended by the production of the indictment. The Court decided that it coulii not hear Mr Clark on any eff these points. It could not inquire into the doings of the Governor of New York, or even of this State. Uader the act of Congress fugitives from justice were to be given up on a eerta'.n requisition being made, and all that this court could inquire, was whether this had been made in due form? properly attested by the seal of tbe Commonwealth? and whether all the requirements of the act had been complied with. If they had. this court could not interfere. Dr. Earle, one of the prisoners, then rose and aaked permission to say a word. He stated that tbe officers had taken hint from his bed at 12 o'clock at night, witb his night cap cn, and had not even given him time to put on his unmentionablei. They would not tell him for what be was arrested, or where they were going to take him. If they had done so, and given him time to pack up a few shirts, he never would nsve consented to trou ble the ronrt wltb this writ of habeas corpus. Mr. Clarke then asked a further adjournment till 2,S' o'clock, 1'. M . wbich was granted. The prisoners were finally remanded to the custody of Mr. Bruen, to be taken by him to New York in accord- j ancewith the requisition. Charge ot Enllxtlng for the Crimea. I'M!

A letter from your Washington correspondent, dated March 17, and published in your journal of toe 1Mb, contains abatements wholly inexast, and at the Bume time injurious to me. If Mr. Cuehing or Mr. Calderon de la Barca hare at any time interested themselves in my favor, aa alleged, it Is an honor which I esteem, but I hare never reoeived a word from either of those gentlemen, nor hare I ever ad dreaied tbem on tke subject referred to in the letter. If ?ueh interest wan manifested it was entirely unsolicited by me, and consequently still more entitled to my acknow ledgment. I bare never played the spy to anybody nor for any body. I have never failed In my duty towarda Mr . Soule, aa Secretary of thia legation; nor have I ever addressed Mr. Marcy or any other member of the government, di rectly or Indirectly, concerning the affairs of thia legation, whilst Mr. Soule was at ita head and responsible for what might occur. Bat when I, myself, became the aole representative of the United States at the court of Spain, I, in my turn, became directly responsible to the Pretident and the country for what might be done or left undone here. Whatever may have been my course during that period, it is not open to the charge of inaubordination towards Mr. Seule, seeing that I waa not the Cdarge d'AlTairs of Mr. Souh', but of the United States of America, which is quite a different thing. Whilat Mr. Soule was in the position of a Minister Ple nipotentiary, appointed to Spain, bat no1, in the exercise of his functions, nor recognized by the Spanish govern ment, whatever instructions he might choose to give me, not proceeding directly from the President or the Secretary of State, could be riewed as nothing mora than counsel and advice? counsel which 1 always took pains to follow in form, at least, out of respect to him who had been, and might again be, my superior officer; counsel which I followed in form anl In spirit, alio, whenever, in my judgment, it was not clearly opposed to the express instructions of the government at Wash ington, or to the sncred interests of the Unite! States, then trusted to my ckarge. I performed my duty towards America as I wan able, in the difficult circumstances in which I was placed. Eventa will prove whether I performed it well or ill; and if my judgment was differ' ent from that of Mr. Foule, upon any part of the policy to be pursued here, I am responsible for its justness or ita error? not to him, but to the government and t) the country. I certainly did not conceal my opinions upon affairs either from Mr. Soule, or from the Secretary of State, nor did 1 hesitate to speak them to the Spanish government, whenever I thought that course neccssary for the Inte rests of the United States; guarding alwaya the letter of the directions of Mr. Soule, from respect to the dignity he enjoyed, and holding up that dignity in the presence of the government and people of Spain, then higlily Incensed against him, on all occasions and in every manner. I was not aware that I enjoyed the patronage of any body. With Mr. Marcy I have not the honor of a per sonal acquaintance. I have never addressed him except as Secretary of State, and the first line I ever received from him was in the laat days of November, 1854, aimply acknowledging the receipt of documents. It is utterly falae that white I was writing one thing to the Secretary of State, I waa writing another and a dif ferent thing to Mr. Soule, aspersing the administration, and speaking of ita course as treacherous and cowardly. Such things should not be written without the presen tation of tbe proof. 1 call for that proof from every one who may suppose that be has evidence to the truth of the statement, without exception of any; and if such evidence should not appear, I leave the author of that statement under the weight of hia own work, in the opinion of all honorable men.

Tbe particulars of a distressing and melanoholy case of suicide, by taking poison, came to light yesterday morning, disappointment in a love affair being the sale caure of the misfortene. It appears, as far as we hare be?-n able to ascertain, that a few months ago a young German, named George Numerlck, came to this country, earing behind him in bis aative place his betrothed. After a stay of some months in this city, he wrote a let ter to tbe father of the girl, and requested that he would send on his daughter, at the same time offering money to defray the necessary expenses of tbe journey. The fatter, however, would not consent' to tbe proposition. This had such an efTcct upon tbe mind of poor Numerlck that a melancholy seized his mind, and from that date he resolved to put an end to an existence loathsome to hira. He was heard to say that he would destroy himself by barging, and various other ways. On Thurs d?j afternron, while at work in the store of Mr. Ferris, No. 33 Front street, he was heard to exclaim, "I an very much sick.'' and then commenced vomiting. His friends not thinking that he bad taken poison, advised him to go home to his residence in Forty fifth street, as string him that he would be quite well the next day Tbttber the sick man was conveyed by one of his fell iw workiren On reaching the house of Edling, where he boarded, be refused to see a doctor, and after twoor tLree hours of great suffering expired. Coroner nilton wss soon notified of the occurrence, and held an Inquest open the body of the deceased, when it appeared from the teftimoty of l*wii Mullot, M. D., the physician who marie tbe post mortem examination of the body, that death was caused by taking some poisonous vegetable. The jury rendered a verdict of "death by poisoning from some vegetable poison.'* The precise character of the poireii r r the manner in which deceased obtained it, has rot jet been ascertained. However, an analysis of the strrrach will be made by Dr. Mullot. The deceased was about 24 yesrs of age, of prepossessing appearance, s nd was much attached te his fellow workmen, whe deeply lament his melancholy end. WallUk'l ThMtw? Ti? far TmtJ A very utt translation, (by Mr. P. TfcUour*,) of l**, Alarii me font torn j our t Hire, ?i played kere last night. The Preach pieee is by MM. Delaceuraad Jaolne.ju,, and ill product! <1 last November at the Theatre du Vaudeuill", Paris. The play has bee* wry Aagil cised, but In sentiment it U itUl ver? French?. The plot is only a thread of itself, bat lh? atoatiou are very odd and very funny. Mr. Thmiby is an elegant young man, who bat a great propensity far Hurting with married women, chiefly to torment hu?b*?J* in general. He baa a friend namsd Franklind, and this friend ha* a partner named Sowerby, who ia the particular object of Thornby's aggravating talent. Mrs. Frank land and Mrs. Sowerby are both younger than tewir liege lords, and there is a tbiri li ly in the family, in the person of Frankland's niece, ilose. Assisting one of these bean ties In her "Berlin wool," another in her maeic, and the third in her drawing, and getting up plenaaat partes for the whole trio, Mr Thornby carries on aa agreeable sort of existence, without much thought of mischief, till Sowerby titles it into his heal to be jealous, and ac cordingly draws down upon his head all. Um annoyances which, as Thornby conceives, are duo to suspicious husbands. Thornby is ordered oat of tlio hoase by Sowerby ; but, as he happens to be hi* lodger as welj UK his acquaintance, he takes occasion to call again, ?merely as a lodger,'' and persecutes liins with com plaints about rats and smoky chimney:*, lie also con trives to be mere than usually ardent u> Mas. Sowerby ; and when Mrs. Fntbtlnnri, to save her frienl from the wrath of Sowerby, suddenly takes her pfrwo in the very midst of a^ieclarauou. he continues in the same aoi< tory strain to the new comer, delijhtK) with tho ago nies of Sowerby, whom he observes v? inly endeavoring to conceal himtelf behind a curtain, anil who, tar from delighted to find tb?t Mrs. Frankland, not Mia. Sower by, is the object of the scapegrace's devotions, is only ' irgusted by the u anilestation of universal proMgucy. Be is by no means convinced that Thornby is not the admirer of Mrs. Sowerby as well as of Mrs. /rank land, and his doubti furnish his evil genius with now means of tormenting him As we have said, he Is half- con cealed behind a curiam while Mrs. Fntntland received the addresses of Thornby. The malicious roue promise* the laughing fair one that by a sort of legerdemain he will convey the listener from tho curtain to the interior - of a cabinet, and fulfils his promise atones, by pretend ing to slipaletter into the article of fnrn'turo, for this operation is no sooner performed than the husband darts ii?e lightning into the new hiding plao*. That he may have some means of vengeaace, Sowerby attempts to make Frankland suspicious of his wife: hat nr. and Mrs. Frankland perfectly understand each ether, and the end of the maehinati' iix of the joalous man merely lead to a marriage between Thornby and Rose, whom Frankland considers to have been ihe real object of his young friend's attention. In the socond set we find the tables turned upon Thornby, who receives the Sowerbys and Franklands at his country house. Thornby being now a married man, Sowerby has resolved that be shall teel a>l the pangs of jealousy, and consequently causes an infla<to number of" bouquets to be sent to Rose from an unknown hand. This expedient is not successful, for Roso, far from ha ving reason to complain of any jealousy on the part of Thornby, is annoy cu by his growing indifference and his neglect of those retails of dress that distinguished his bachelor days. However, Sowerby has a bold move in reterve. Be has invited from London a notorious lady killer, who is to empley the whole of his marvellous at tractions in fascinating Rose and destroying the conjugal happiness of Thornby. The Lothario cannot coaae, but sends instead one Mr. Easy Bolton, a vulgar habitue of the turf, who has Tt-ry lax notions respecting the proper aspiration of words, and seems the last person to win the heart of a lady of refinement. Nevertheless, the dasire of Rose to awaken her husband 'a jealousy, for the purpose of conquering his indifference, aids Sowerby in his plan, and Jhornby, with the fear of Mr. Easy Bolton before his eyes, goes through all the absurd situ ations into which ^owfrby was throat daring the first - act. Of coarse, all ends with renewed piotsstatians of fondness exchanged between Mr. and Mrs. Thornby. "Tit for Tat" was translated for and played at th& Olympic, London.

The United States sloop- of- war, Jamestown, Command* er Ellison, bearing the broad pennant of Commodore Crabbe, of the African squadreti. arrived in onr harbor the morning of the l!Ub, trom Norfolk, Va., via Havana. Her arrival was unexpected, as it was generally suppo sed that she was on Iter way to relieve the Constitution, now on the African coast. Our relations with Spain cancot be in an amicable state, or why the presence ia their waters of this s'oop of- war with the Commander of another squadron. She is to remain here until farther orders are received from Washington. The San Jacinto, now nt Havana, is expected to join the .lamesiown, and the Princeton, ( aptsin Eagle, has dispatches at this Post Office from tbe Secretary of the Navy. The Spanish Consul visited the Jamestown on the 21st, snd wiis received with a salute of nine guns. The Hon. fcteplien R. Mallory, the author of the Naval Reform bill, and member ot the Senate Naval Committee, also visited the ship, snd was honored with a salute. The Jamestown, a tew days before her arrival, and when but. one day 's sail from Havana, spied a man-of-war at a distance, and, supposing her to bt a Spaniard, she was cleared lor action, the guns were shotted, and every preparation made for an immediate attack. Much to tlitlr disappointment, the stranger, when three mile* distant, hoitted the American (lag to her fore, and sa luted It with Iblitj two guns. She proved to be at? Ergllsh frigate. So soon as the shot could bs withdrawn, tbe salute was returned. We learn that the Jamestown Is in a state of most complete efficiency The men are dally drilled at tb? goon, and as often as possible practised with shot and. shell. Conrt Calendar?' Title Day.
