The Turf CENTBEVILLE COflit-K, I.. I ? TBOTTIKO. The second march between Centreville and Lantern came ctf on Saturday afternoon. The previous race oc curred on Monday last. Each one was for $2,000 ? the first two mile heats, the tecond mile heats, best three in five, in harness Lantern won in tbe first instance, and Centreville in the second. As iitt.e is known by the public concerning Lantern ? tbe*? matches marking his first appearance in public ? it may not be out of place to say something about him. He was bred in Andalusia. Bucks county, Pennsylvania, and sired by Bashaw, the half brother of .Andrew Jack ecn and Paladin, tbe three rrost noted sons of Old Ba shaw. Andrew Jackson waa probably the most celebrated of thia family, having sired tbe famoua stallions Black Hawk and Kemble Jackson. Saladin was the sire of the well known Philadelphia Sal and Charlotte Temple, and died about two years ago. Bashaw, the only living one of tbe three brothers, baa probably aired mors trotters tban any horse America ever produced, not ex cepting the fatuous AbdalUti. He ia now living, and maintain! bis pristine vigor even in his old age, and bids fair to be tbe tire ot many a good trotter yet ; wliL'e his progeny now far outnumbers tbat of any eastern bashaw He has been a perfect Turk, ami should have oeen a sultan at least. Bashaw, tbe origin cf this great family ot irot'ers, Is claimed by bis owners, Mr Waa ver and Mr. .-am I MiCracken, to bave been the sire of tae g-eatLadySutlolk. notwitbstandlogtbe prevailing opinion thai she was by Fngiceer, a horse who was never known to have produced a trotter.

At some tutum day we w<U say more ot this fine stock of horses, in an article giving a recerul history of the horse, and a bio graphy ol tbe mo.^t prominent aaimaU of thia country.

It sppmrtd to be no effort on nis part, although Centieville came out ahead m the Brst mile of each heat. The time, it i* true, was nothing to speak of; but it was generally supposed by the majority of tbe rpectator* that Lanterr was kept back with a view or creeling a belief that Ontreville could beat him at mile beats. The result of tbe sesond race doea not seem to confirm this opinion, for (,'entreriUe was never beaded in it, having taken tbf track immediately on starting, and retaining it to tbe end Tbe time was alio much quicker. Centreville was unfit for tha two mile uonttat; b' t be appeared at home in the aecond raoe, although many though' bim too weak to get tbrougb it, and ?ere netting one hundred ? o twenty five on lantern after OntreviUe had wi>n the first beat, wbich waa thought to have been lost by the driver of lantern hold log the powers of Ceotreville too iigbtly. If that heat hid not been lost tbe result migrt bave been otherwise Tb?he horses are sgain matched for mile heats, and will go in October next, when both wili be in bettor condi tion, and an exciting contest may be looked for.

With the exception of one season in 1'hXladelphla, the Misses Gougenheim have acted in this city ever since their arrival in Araerl ca, a period of nearly five years, we believe.

The comedy of " Married Life" wai very fairly played, and the part of Henry Dove was ex ceedingly well acted by Jtfr. J. S. C/arke, a stranger here. Mr. Clarke has tbe elements of a capital comedian, aa<l bis only fault is a disposition to over-act. Tue first part of " King Henry Fourth' ' has been produced here with Mr. Hacbett as Falataff. Also the ballet " La Peri," with Soto a? Nourmabal. Miss Jessie McLean, whose debut in Juliana Isst winter will be remembered, has played Kate O'Brien in " Perfection."

At 9 A M., oa the 23d of I) oember, weather clear, thermometer 72d%g., barometer 30, a sever? shock of an earthquake was felt ou board the frigate, shying the ?hip tcost severely. This shock lasted full five minutes, ami was followed at quick interval-* by rapid and afvere shocks for thirty minutes. At 9:30, tbe sea was observei washing inta tbe bay, in trie immense wave, SO feet bigh, with awful velocity. In an instant tbe town of Simjda was over whelmed and swept from it- foundations, large juaVa were da* hed together, and many awbpt up the valley several miles, 'tbe water as suddenly receded, carrying eveiytbing with it, bouses, junks, fragments of all kinda and burr bu beings, in <>nc frightful mass. This advance and recession of tae water occurred Ave times. A dense smoke nm* over tbe town and al* joining lanf , and the uluiospuoro was Oiled to sulf<>ca tion with sulphuric eas. (be earth heaving and being shook by tbe subterranean explosions for five hour*. On board the Russiao frigate the scene was of a charac ter to appal the stoutest heart. She was dashed from side to side, and upon the water receding she was suddenly grounded upon ber broadside, with bat lour feet of wa ter around ber. Again suddenly floated by the rush of water such bewilder ng velocity that it seemed aj if the ship was flying through the air, numa rous whirlpools were formed, in which tae ship wai whirled with such 'earful rupidity tliat men and officer i were made giddy. Ia this helpless condition they re mait.ed Curing the continuance of the earthquake and tbe agltati ^n of the waters, the water receding and ad vancing flve d i 1 1 <? rent times. When stranded at thsebb, the frigate's anchors were in aight, and seemed to be moving along the ground, tbe ship feel ag tbe shocks in every timber, having tho wbole of ber keel and rudder torn off, atd commencing to leak badly. By 2:30 P. M_ nil was quiet, with tbe exception of an occasional ram ble of tbe earth, the water calm, and seemingly smiling upon ita work of devastation. So thickly strewn waa its surface that the Japanese walked aorosi the bay, Marching for the dead and their floating property, (if about 1,000 bouses in Simula, but 18 -vere Jetc standing, aid they all more or less shattered.
