The Newark daily advertiser hat the following letter from a correspondent at Jacksonville Florida giving ample details of warlike preparations at that place of which be has been an Eye witness. The place is Well selected Remote from business and observation with no officials present no mail oftener than once a week. Jacksonville East Florida _ april25, 1851 i for the past ten Days w e have heard a a rumours of wars a not Well authenticated but furnishing certain evidence that another quixotic expedition against Cuba was intended. It is evident that there Are several Points of departure along the Gulf coast at new or Learis and St. Mary a and from the St. Johns River Florida. There Are six steamers at least and probably 2000 to 3000 Nien. Savannah is the Lead quarters of operations on the Atlantic Side. I was shown a letter from Gen. Gonzales a week ago dated at Savanna directing the movements of men and military stores but believed that it might be an attempt to direct Public attention from some other Quarter. It is now Plain that the Many evidences of a movement in the states bordering on the Gulf of Mexico indicate an invasion of Cuba which will be attempted before this reaches you. The expedition will undoubtedly sail in the course of Twenty four or thirty six hours. A Large Quantity of forage among which was 30m or 400 bushels of Oats w As deposited Here the Day before yesterday and this morning i saw put into the same storehouse Cannon gun carriages. Rifles muskets ammunition and the furniture of an army equipment to a very Large amount. I have never seen so Many implements of War except in an Arsenal. Large quantities of Wood and Rosin for the fuel on Board the steamers and horses and men Are collected in this immediate Vicinity ready for embarkation. A Steamer is expected from new York to Morrow. This expedition would appear to be much better appointed manned and office red than the one landed at Cardenas. Gen. Quitman is said to command and Lopez to be the second. Some Here who Are pointed out As connected with the expedition As officers Are said to be men of bravery and military Talent. Most of the privates of whom i have heard Are men who Learned the Art of War in Mexico where i they contracted the taste of blood and longed j for More. Blood hounds arid tigers Are not the. Only animals who become fierce by killing. It is a desperate business and requires reckless. I desperate men. It is supposed that they will land 3000 on the South Side of the Island sup j plied with fild pieces and Good cavalry horse that the steamers that convey them will be Burnt or sail immediately leaving the invaders no alternative but to conquer or die. It is said that a Large number of the Creole population Are fully prepared to join the Landing party and that an organized Force Nwe aits the movement in the mountains. It is said the Spanish population is Only one sixteenth part of i the whole and it is represented that the remainder desire to fight for Liberty. I am told that $70,000 Worth of jewelry and $150.000 in j Money was sent to Gen. Lopez the other Day from Havana and $80,000 was contributed by a Rich planter who is regarded at Home As favourable to the government. The agents Here seem to have plenty of Money and to spend it freely. They have several ways to raise the wind. One by the Issue of Bonds to be redeemed if the exp edition is successful another by the Sale of commissions. A lieutenant by was offered to a brother of Gen. Shields it is said at Savannah for $1,000, with a Promise of $10,000 Worth of Bonds. The citizens Here have Given the Enterprise no direct encouragement and no United states officer Here has the right to there is no u. S. Marshal Here. The thing is looked upon generally As chimerical and until they saw these warlike preparations and military discredited if although a few know ing ones have known All about it and cautiously hinted it when Necez Ary in order to make the necessary preparations. The creoles and cubans who Are Here and the Lew who were engaged in the Cardenas affair talk indignantly of Spanish tyranny and say that the cubans Are on the very Point of a revolution with or without help. It seems quite certain that before to Morrow evening the Steamer will he Here to receive the military stores and embark for the War. The Captain of the company is a Fine military looking Man the hair on fans face being disposed a a californian. This is a place out of the Highway of travel there being a mail Here but once a week and it May be. Therefore that All this letter contains has been anticipated. It is interesting to observe How enticing and contagious is the War spirit. If things could remain a few Days As at present it would seem that any number of men could be enlisted in this service which but yesterday Wai pronounced wild and chimerical. The Field pieces and the muskets seem to have turned the Heads of some from whom More j Wisdom could be expected. The 26th, to Morrow is the Day that was named ten Days ago by one of the agents Here As the Day of departure and considerable Wisdom has been manifested with regard to the management of the business when it is remembered that probably from 30u0 to 5000 persons must have known All about it. I understand however that Gonzales has been threatened with Ariest at Savannah where he has endeavoured to enlist men and procure Money. The preparation for the attack on the part of the Spanish authorities is fully appreciated. They expect hard fighting but rely principally upon the representation that a revolution in Cuba is ready to take place and Only needs a the indians in have been favored with the perusal of a letter from an authentic source in Florida giving a satisfactory statement As to the conclusion of the Indian difficulties in that stale. This letter states that a the outsiders Are All in and what is More All their families Are forced by their chiefs to live South of Catoosa Hatcher. The men Only go North to Hunt on the big Prairie and to tend corps on fish eating Creek. Bowlegs Assunna and Nokosiee Ematha had come into major cases a scamp to inform him of the foregoing facts and to learn when the store would be opened. Major Casey took this Opportunity of demanding the murderers the parties implicated in the murder of a boy sometime ago Bowlegs and Assunna both agreed to give them up As soon As possible and demanded that when apprehended they should be punished maj. Casey had agreed that they should be executed at his Camp in the presence of the Young indians and the officers and men generally it will of course be an Indian execution. This proceeding is justified on the following grounds that the parties to be executed Are cruel murderers that their punishment will restrain others and preserve the peace it will appease the citizens who Are entitled to this sacrifice and lastly it is the Universal Law. The execution will be according to Indian fashion. It is sex needed that this will put an end to difficulties with the Semins Les in More a second Advent Union convention held in new Yolk on thursday week a or. Reed stated that he was a fully prepared to prove that the 2300 Days the prophetic period would expire on or before the 23d Day of july next a and consequently there must be an end of the world Between this and that period. Or. Miller was just As positive that the event would take place some years ago and we were shown tim disinherit a via Lack a from the cd Tirier Des Etas unite a take the following extraordinary Romance in real life which though told in a column contains More than plot enough for two of the modern novels. During the first three years of the reign of Louis Philippe a Man inhabited a magnificent hotel in the Faubourg St. Honor not from the place Beauveau. His Fortune was in men. His disposition Saturine. He saw no one and occupied a Small apartment on the ground floor which apartment was decidedly the most in hospitable in Paris. As for the other rooms in the hotel they were always empty and closed. This strange personage went out every Day at midday and returned at four o clock in the afternoon the rest of the time he was invisible. His Only relatives lived at Perigord with the exception of a Nephew whom he had brought to pans and sent to colleges a handsome boy Active and bold and fair As a Saxon. The Uncle and Nephew dines together every sunday and after dinner the old Man said to the Young one slipping a Louis do or into his hand a Lyon will be my heir a and the inheritance consisted of so Ven or eight millions at least every sunday and thursday morning the proprietor of the pm Reauveau. Received a visit from a Beautiful and elegantly dressed woman. She always came in a Carriage entered the Garde quot and returned at noon on sunday and on this Day at Midnight. On no other Day was she seen at the hotel. This state of things lasted some years. The scholar was growing into a Young Man the single Louis had been replaced by a double one and still the old Man said a a you shall be my Frem the Hartford times. Sam Houston. Heir a to which the Nephew sometimes replied a a their or not. I have time to wait. The truth is that the millionaire was dry As ratan. Green As a Hunch of Holly and Strong As an Oak. One wednesday they found him dead in his bed. A charcoal fire half consumed travelling , in which ii Rover a new of a quoth re a his calculations was said to be demonstrated. Many persons lost their lives and others were ruined by their Confidence in or. Millers accuracy and we have no doubt that or. Reed will obtain followers who will have their ascension Robes prepared for a flight to heaven for there arc persons who will believe in any Absurdity however Gross. These predictions about the destruction of this Globe should give no person in Sines a much less should men neglect their duties to their families and to society to follow after the Blind leaders who imagine that they have discovered the secrets of the almighty mind. Mote Steamer Atlantic which reached our port yesterday brought up from new Orleans two Hundred and forty English mormon emigrants who with the exception of some , have been left for a Day or two at quarantine Island. Or. Thos. Wrigley the elder in this City gives us the following account of these emigrants. The party under the charge of or. Hallo Well mormon elder left Liverpool on the 4th of March last in company of quite a Large number of other passengers. Hie passage across lasted some nine weeks during which time there occurred Little sickness and but two deaths the deceased in both instances being children. It would appear that the journey was not prosecuted in an Idle spirit so As the propagation of the mormon Creed is concerned. Fifty of the other passengers we learn embraced the doctrine before the vessel had reached her place of destination. Of the two Hundred and forty emigrants will proceed i immediately to Council Bluffs thence to Salt Lake City with the company in charge of elders bobbins and Little. The Steamer statesman which had been detained beyond her regular time started with them yesterday afternoon. The remainder will Stop in our City at least for several month a and very possibly for a year or two. As we stated yesterday this arrival will close the Spring emigration of the present year. During the upward trip of the Atlantic a Man named r. Penn who had taken passage on deck among the mormons but who we Are requested to say was not a member of the party was taken suddenly ill and died. He leaves a wife and five children. Little or no sickness has taken place among the mormons since they have reached this . Republican. the 1st of april three Hundred and nine wagons have crossed the Terre haute Indiana Bridge averaging five persons to the Wagon on their Way to Iowa and Oregon.

Although the reports we a Lude to Are without foundation it is nevertheless True As Ever that at Rome All such important questions move ponderously slow and that if our archbishop should be soon elevated to the Cardin late. It would be an unusual thing and a testimony of extraordinary regard for the United states on the part of his Holliness the Pope. Our information from Rome on this subject comes not from american but from n. Y Freeman a journal. From the new Orleans Picayune. The cuban arrests at new monday morning considerable excitement prevailed about the United states marshals office in Newyl Ork and a Large number of persons had assembled to hear the examination of the parties to the alleged cuban expedition there under arrest.

On further searching Between the decks and hold of the Cleopatra. About Twenty four kegs of congestion of the brain. Justice came and sealed up everything. The relatives duly notified came and before witnesses proceeded to the opening of the desk where the the papers of the defunct were kept. A will written in the Tes Tatoris own band left As sole Legatee the lady who had paid the sunday and Churdar visits to the hotel of the place Reauveau with the sin Gle charge of an annuity of two thousand four Hundred francs to the Nephew of the deceased the family attempted to set aside the will thousand rumours As to the cause of the sudden death prevailed but spite of rumours and Law proceedings the lady was maintained by the tribunals in Possession of the goods and chattels which constituted the wealth of the millionaire. The Nephew who should have had an income of three or four thousand francs had Only Ananuk Ity of one Hundred Louis. Rich he would have been a sportsman poor he became a Sailor. Eight or ted years rolled on. The Sailor in cruising round the world had doubled his Small Fortune. Chance led him to Paris and having at the moment no voyage to make to Vera Cruz or Calcutta he paraded the Boulevard believing that Man who had five or six thousand Livres year has a Good right to bask in the Sun. One Day while crossing the Guillerie he met a Young girl he thought the most Beautiful he had Ever seen. He followed her without thinking any harm to her residence in the Rue de Bac the next Day and without any settled purpose the Sailor was again traversing the Garden of Tuil series. The same woman and Young girl were walking there again. He caught the Young girls Eye and she blushed a celestial Rosy the same thing took place for several successive Days hut on sunday instead of going to the Tuil series he Betook himself to St. Thomas do Aquin where at the first glance he caught sight of a Little White Bonnet and a Little Brown head from which he could not turn his bold and Resolute As a Rover the Sailor was by nature sentimental and romantic one Day the Young girl had dropped a Boquet of violets which he pounced upon and wore next to his heart As a a Talisman. A Mafoi a said he to himself one morning i should like to have that Little girl for my wife. I must set about making inquiries on the the result of which was that he Learned that the Young Eirl was immensely Rich and with a sigh he said a Bon if she Hail been poor i might have married her but As Rich As a fairy it is impossible a thereupon he bit his moustache and went Home to pack up his travelling traps. His trunk packed he went to bed and before sleep had visited his eyelids had determined to put a continent Between h i bewitched and himself. The next morning a hurried note was handed him requesting him to Call at the office of the notary without a moments delay. A its probably an engagement to take some ship out to China a thought the Sailor As he went to the notary s. A Monsieur a said the notary who wore a White Cravat and Gold spectacles like the notaries of the gymnast a you go frequently to the Tuil series an to St. Thomas do Anu Iube a i do replied the Sailor slightly troubled by this exordium. A you have often met there a Young girl accompanied by a Middle aged woman a a the Young girl seemed to please you a a in Short you love her a a yes a and you would like to marry her a a very a Well sir the matter can be a do you think so a a certainly my business is to think.,�?T a but she has seven or eight i a ten a and i have a you exaggerate you have an income of four thousand eight Hundred a a Mere drop of water beside the a but suppose the Ocean wants you have i j your consent a j a then come it will be easily believed that the Young Man kept the appointment. He was slightly Pale and did no dare to question the notary who opened the conversation. A everything is settled and the bans can be published to Morrow if you a a if i permit surely and 1 could embrace you info the a embrace if that pleases you and then listen to a say a your intended is slightly your a nah hah a a and her Fortune comes from your a hold hold but then a a ask me no questions you must rest satisfied with a then i accept and i guess a a at you please.

Three weeks afterwards they were married. Gen Sam Houston eras born on the 2d of March 1793, and March 21 he was of course fifty eight years of age. He i a native of Rockbridge county. Virginia. His ancestors were Highland scots and fought for Liberty by the Side of John Knox. His father took an Active part in the american revolution. He was born in Ireland Gen. Houston a Grandfather having emigrated from Scotland to Ireland. In personal appearance Gen. Houston is one of Obeno Blest of men. He would be singled out from a congregation of five thousand on account of his lofty figure admirable proportions Ami the marked lineaments of his features in which intellect firmness and goodness of heart Art most happily blended. Gen. Houston s father died in 1807, leaving no property and the enviable conspicuous position which Sam Houston now holds in this Republic has Heen attained by his own exertions and upon his own merits. He is truly a a a if made he spent several years of his youth in the for ests among the indians pursuing such studies As were congenial to his taste. At the age of 18 years he left the wild sons of he Forest and for a few years kept a school in Tennessee with unusual Success. In 1813 he enlisted in the army As a common Soldier. He was derided for entering the ranks when he replied a what have your Craven souls to say about the ranks ? i would much sooner Honor the ranks than disgrace an his Mother a tall and matronly woman consented that he should enter the army and As he was about to depart she came to the door of her cottage and handed him a Musket saying a there my son take this Musket and never disgrace it for remember i had rather All my so s should fill one honorable grave than that one of them should Tui n his Bac k to save Bis life. Go and remember too that while the door of my cottage is open to Brave men it is sternly shut against he did not remain Long in a the his commanding form and ample qualifications Secu red for Hun a rapid promotion. At the Battle of the Horseshoe he was an Ensign under Gen. Jackson. He was among the very first to scale the breast works of the wily indians and to plunge into their coverts. It was Here that he rushed up to the strongest defences of the enemy calling upon his comrades to follow but none dared to accompany Bim and alone he faced the Savage foe receiving two Rifle balls m his shoulder and a barbed Arrowo deeply embedded in his thigh that it required the full strength of a Man to extricate it. It was Here that he rushed into the most dangerous parts of the Battle ground against the express orders of Gen. Jackson and Here too though disobeying that great Many a orders he won his lasting regard and love. The night set in upon the ruin of the Creek warriors and their nation but to Houston though he had won imperishable Laurel so it was a night of pain. He was left upon the ground amid the terrible confusion that prevailed As it was supposed in a dying state. But a life of thrilling adventure still awaited him. He was afterwards promoted to a lieutenant but finally resigned and went to Nashville to study Law at the age of 25. In one third the time usually allotted to the studies of the Law student he so completely fitted himself that he passed a searching examination with great credit to himself. He commenced the practice at Law was soon after appointed to the office of adjutant general of Tennessee and in the same Jear District attorney. He Rose rapidly at the bar. His rare Good sense and penetrating Genius gave him great advantage and he was signally successful. In 1812 he was elected major general of Tennessee and in 1823 he was elected to Congress from that state. His course was approved by his constituents and he was returned a second term by an almost unanimous vote. In 1827 he was elected governor of Tennessee by a majority of twelve thousand. So great was his popularity that he did not have a single opponent in the legislature. In 1829, when he was at the height of his popularity and More generally beloved than any other Man in the state he married an amiable Young lady. The connexion proved unfortunate. In the course of a few weeks separation took place but there was no abuse on the part of either. Both deemed it for the Best to separate. Both agreed to part in kindness and on Friendly terms. The circumstances created a flame of excitement. The cause was unknown Ami still we heard Gen. Houston once say it will from the London Globe april s. Keuthen it the berth rendered to Experiment now being exhibited in Paris by which the diurnal rotation of the Earth is rendered palpable to the sense is one of the most remarkable of the modern verifications of theory. Although the demonstration by which the rotation of the Earth has been established a such As to carry a conviction to the minds of All who Are capable of comprehending it to which nothing can be imagined to add either Force or clearness nevertheless even the natural Phi of phr himself cannot regard the present Experiment without feelings of profound interest and satisfaction and to the great mass to whom the complicated physical Phenomena by which the rotation of the Earth Nas been established Are incomprehensible this Experiment is invaluable. At the Centre of the dome of the pantheon a Fine wire is attached from which a sphere of Metal four or five inches n diameter is suspended so As to hang near the floor of the building. This apparatus is put in vibration after the manner of a pendulum. Under and Coneen trial with it is placed a circular table some Twenty feet in diameter the circumference of which is Divi idea into degrees minutes ac., and the divisions numbered. Now it can be shown by the most elementary principles of mechanics that supposing the Earth to have the diurnal motion upon its Axis which is imputed to it and which explains the Phenomena of Day and night ac., the plane in which this pendulum vibrates will maintain strictly the same direction during Twenty four hours. In this interval however the table Over which the pendulum is suspended will continually change its position in virtue of the diurnal motion so As to make a Complete revolution round its Centre. Since then the table thus revolver and the pendulum which vibrates Over it does not revolve the consequence is that a line traced upon the table by a Point projecting from the Bottom of tie Ball w ill change its direction relatively to the table from minute to minute and from hour to hour so that if such Point were a Pencil and that paper were spread upon the table the course formed by this Pencil during Twenty four hours would form a system of links radiating from the Centre of the table and the two lines formed after the interval of one hour would always form an Angle with each other of 15 deg., being the Twenty fourth Nart of the circumference. Now this is rendered actually visible to the crowds which daily Fleck to the pantheon to witness this remarkable Experiment. The Practised Eye of a Correct observer especially if aided by a proper optical instrument May actually see the Mon Ion which the table has in common with the Earth under the pendulum Between two successive vibrations. It is in fact apparent that the Ball or rather the Point attached to the Bottom of the Ball does not return precisely to the same Point of the circumference of the table after two successive vibrations. Thus is rendered visible the motion which the table has in common with the Earth. It is True that correctly speaking the table does not turn round its own Centre but turns round the Axis of the Earth nevertheless the effect of the motion relatively to the pendulum suspended Over the Centre of the table it precisely the same As it would be if the table moved once in Twenty four hours round its own Centre for although the table be turned in common with the surface of the Earth round the Earth Saxis being continually maintained vertical above the Centre of the table. The plane in which the pendulum vibrate does not however partake of this motion and consequently has the appearance of revolving once in Twenty four hours Over the table while in reality it is the table which revolves once in Twenty four hours under it.

Houston was assailed and in the excitement was charged with abusing his Wile. The lady soon put that right however and her nearest friends were afterwards the warmest friends of the general. He refused to explain or defend himself in relation to the separation declaring that it was a private affair with which the Public had nothing to do. But he resigned his executive office retired to the forests and with the red Man spent three years studying the volumes of a Choice Library which he carried with him. He was welcomed by the great chief of the cherokees who declared when he received Houston at his wigwam a we Are in trouble and the great spirit has sent you to us to give us counsel and take trouble away from the re Man has no better Friend than Houston and they love him As a father. When Houston passed through Tennessee after his three year sojourn with the indians he was enthusiastically greeted by the people and urged to make his residence there. Designing demagogues had attempted to crush him. And had brought powerful influences to Bear against him. But he met them boldly and came out of ail those contests unscathed with a character we next find Houston in Texas True to the instincts of his life the Friend of Liberty the uncompromising enemy of tyrants. Our readers Are better acquainted with his eventful life in Texas than they probably were of his earlier history and we will not extend the article by giving the particulars of his rapid Rise to distinction upon that Field of his Fame and glory. There was no place too High or two responsible for Houston to fill in Texas and he has never be raved the trn to which his fellow citizens who looked upon him As the father of their liberties were pleased to place in his hands. They knew him they venerate him. Houston is now a senator from Texas. Calm and thoughtful no excitement disconcert him no Mere stroke of political policy influences him. His Mission is to do right and for the Best Ood of his fellow men. There is no stronger Friend of the Union than he. It was no longer ago than monday feb. 24th that he accepted an invitation from the National Temperance society and delivered a most eloquent address at Tripler Hall in new York. Those who heard that address declares that the newspapers reports of it convey but a feint idea of its True merits As an eloquent production or convincing argument. When he had finished it the committee of invitation waited upon him and presented him with a package of $5 Bank notes. A no said he a i do not want your Money give it to the cause in which you Are engaged my object is to promote that cause not to get pay for my services in its All Are acquainted with the part he took in the terrible Battle of san Jacinto which has scarcely a parallel in the history of human conflicts the capture of Santa Anna and the magnanimity of Houston toward the fallen chief of the mexicans showing the kindly feelings of his heart. When the Public voice cried for the blood of Santa Anna Houston interfered end said that the fallen commander now a prisoner should not be put to death but that be must be treated a a prisoner of War. His voice was heard and Texas was saved from a stain which would hav be Nas lasting As the Black Mark that lines the set of England in her treatment of Napoleon. You will be courage Young Man.

Pages electro magnetic agreeably to Public announcement professor Page yesterday at one of clock in the afternoon made another trial of his electro magnetic locomotive. There were not so Many persons present As on the previous occasion but yet a Large number witnessed the Experiment. The Progress of the locomotive when it started was so slow that a boy was enabled to keep Pace with it for a veral Hundred feet. But the Speed was soon increased and Bladensburg a distance of we believe about five Miles and a Quarter was reached in thirty nine minutes. When within two Miles of that place the Power of the Battery being fully up the locomotive began to run on nearly a level plane at the rate of Nineteen Miles an hour or seven Miles faster than the greatest Speed heretofore attained. This velocity was continued for a mile when one of the cells cracked entirely open causing the acids to Intermix and As a consequence the propelling Power was partially weakened. Two of the other Ceils subsequently met with a similar disaster. The professor proceeded cautiously fearing obstructions on the Way such As the coming of cars in the opposite direction and cattle on the Road. Seven halts were made occupying in All forty minutes. But notwithstanding these hindrances and delays the trip to and from Bland Risburg was accomplished in one minute less than two hours. The cells were made of Light earthenware for the purpose of the Experiment merely without reference to durability. This part of the apparatus can therefore be easily guarded against mishap. The great Point established was that a locomotive on the principle of professor Page can be made to travel Nineteen Miles an hour. The facts above narrated were gathered from a gentleman who was privileged to take a ride in this novel conveyance and they strengthen the opinion which we have heretofore expressed that Success in the application of electro magnetism to the propulsion of railway trains can scarcely any longer be considered Washington Republic. The prison Shower correspondent of the n. Y.

The intended victim is placed in an upright straightened position an Iron Collar wide in front so As of press his head Hack and hold it there is placed about his neck that the whole wide torrent May Stike him directly in the face from one to two or three pounds of water in one continuous Stream till he is apparently drowned and dead then the torturer awaits for returning life or animation in his subject and then drowns him again and so on till his passions or his Savage cruelty is satiated said to be an easy death but in returning animation under such unfavourable circumstances. Those who have been rescued from , after they were supposed to be dead All unite in saying that the agony of re Amati of surpasses All description while drowning is intended with comparatively Little pain.

What eats up Railroad profits is the enormous commissions to agent salaries to officers travelling expenses and a thousand other Hottie pickings and stealing that make a great Deal in the aggregate. We Are told that one of our Illinois Railroad companies supported principally by taxing our Farmers paid As High a $5, to one Man for buying Iron for them when he went out on his own business was gone but a few weeks Ami probably did not expend Nece Sardy $3u0 on his journey. And so it go. The Farmers Are stockholders and Hare to foot the Hills.

They Are such transactions As these that Farmers and mechanics so timid about going into corporations. Well this new plan cuts off an immense amount of stealing. There is no travelling backward and Forward of agents there is no commission for Selling Bonds ther is no commission for buying Iron ther is no going to Europe at the company a expend. The work is Given out in due time the Road is delivered fit for the cars. If accepted by the company the Bonds Are counted out and Given to the contractor and Here ends the who matter.
