President Pissos faithful in the performance of his duties has ordered two steam frigates to Havana As a gentle hint to the Spanish authorities that the government of the United states is determined to protect our citizens and the Flag of our country from additional insult and outrage. To repeated insolence of Spain makes it imperative that our government should have a few War steamers in readiness for any emergency. And it is because the president has pursued this Wise and prudent Couise and is determined to vindicate the rights of our country at All hazards that induces our neighbor to make the false assertion that the administration a a seems determined to involve the country in a War with As we said in Tho commencement of this article this is the old Federal cry Over again. Let Tho United states get into any difficulty with amp foreign Power and our word for it to organs of def Nanct whig Gery will attempt to hold up oar government to ridicule. Such was Tho course of federalism during the struggle of 1812�?.snch their course during the prosecution of the War against Mexico. Then it was that Federal or whig editors aided and abetted As they were by the Oor wins eff one Genus of the land prayed that our Brave troops in Mexico might meet with a a a Naos a Fame it is not to to expected then that Federal editors will pursue a different course to that heretofore pursued by them when our country was in a controversy with a foreign state.

The Senate passed a Resolution to adjourn on to 17th iust., which the House amended by substituting the 24th but no further action was had upon it and consequently it amounts to nothing.

I upon a a Book account for i a the nunnery committee of Tho Massachusetts legislature have been placed in unenviable situation by thedes elopement of the investigation concerning their disgraceful proceedings. It turns out Fiat they gave an entertainment after their Roxbury visit at which they had Champagne wine the whole Bill being paid by the state tips making the latter a party to the breach of its own Laws against the Saloon intoxicating liquors it was also shown that air. Joseph Hiss he member of the Cam Mitte whose disgusting attempts at familiarity with two of Tho ladies of the Roxbury school admit of no excuse or one of its previous visits to Lowell on a like female companion stopping of the hotel with Tho committee Whoso Bill was included in the general Bill o expenses paid by the state. Her name was registered As a mrs. a pretty set of Fellows these Aro indeed to act of censors of the alleged moral and religious delinquencies of catholics. The Philadelphia Ledger truly remarks a the whole conduct of Tho committee was such that if they had behaved in the Samo scandalous manner in any gentleman a residence would have induced tic occupant to have expedited their departure with an application of Tho toe of his Boot. As Tho building contained Only ladies tic committee escaped the punishment their indecency deserved but the press arc very properly holding them to account and the committee seem to sit very uneasily under the the legislative committee appointed to inquire into the doings of the Roxbury nunnery inquisition Mode lengthy report to the House on tuesday in which they censure Tho visiting commit toe but recommend no definite action in the matter. The report was accepted. The committee on the specific charges against Joseph Hiss member of the visiting committee at Lowell have not yet reported. Ilton new York courier after inquiries respecting the present Supply and Quantity to come Forward of agricultural products hazards the opinion that prices have reached their highest and the next movement will to a retrograde one although present prices May to maintained two or three the courier bases its opinion on Tho fact that there arc one million five Hundred thousand barrels of Fioti to come Forward before Harvest from the Western states and the Canadas which Are awaiting the opening of Tho canals in that state. Fifty thousand bushels of potatoes Oro on their Way to new York Market from Nova Scotia under the reciprocity Law. The crop of potatoes in Nova Scotia last year now and then. In the summer kind fall of 1852, says the Richmond enquirer Tho whig presses and whig orators were earnestly invoking the support of the american people for Winfield scott1 for president of Tho United states. Somo ten years since during the existence of the original native american party Gen. Scott had written a letter expressing his approbation of the then suggested change in the naturalization Laws extending the term of residence prior to naturalization from five to Twenty one Cara a those sentiments however he was compelled to recant and in his recantation torrent a How shot beyond the suggestions of any politician of whom we have any knowledge. In a letter written either shortly before or immediately after his Nom Naron for the presidency he expressed an Cut inc change of opinion upon the subject of the naturalization Laws and advocated their Mendro Ehte not the term of years but to authorize the full invest rant with All Tho rights of citizenship of every alien who had served one or it farthest two years in the american army or Navy during which term of service it was of course quite possible that he might not have been for any length of time in the inhabited portions of the United states. His proposition was to offer citizenship of a Bounty to encourage the enlistment of unnatural Zed foreigners in Tho army and Navy of the whited states. In View of this crude statesmanship the support of the foreign voters of this country was Coli cited for him and Gen. Scott himself so far forgot the dignity of his position As to undertake on electioneering tour through the West Eulogi zing in Public speeches a the Rich Irish Brogue and the a Sweet German accent,1�?T and vindicating the foreign from invidious comparison with the native Clement of his victorious mexican army. Now Tho Earnest and enthusiastic advocates of Gen. Scott Are the High priests of know nothing Giro and affect to regard with a holy horror the alarming increase and dangerous proclivities of Tho foreign population. Now our adopted Iii chs even after naturalization Are not esteemed worthy to defend the Honor of the american Flag either upon sea or upon land and no Man who Drew his first breath beneath a foreign sky is worthy to receive the privileges of american citizenship until to has remained among us the full period of 21 years. Again Gen. Pierce was Tho democratic opponent of Gen. Scott and hailed from Tho state of new Hampshire. Our whig friends soon discovered that Tho Constitution of new Hampshire contained a clause excluding roman catholics from office a and though it appeared that Gen. Pierce had exerted his influence to effect an amendment of the Constitution in this a a articular still in a state so much behind the enlightened spirit of tic age was urged with eloquence and earnestness As a sufficient reason to exclude him from High Federal honors. Tho Catholic population of the United states were appealed to by every sentiment of self respect to put under the ban of their opposition Tho son of so intolerant a state. From Maino to Louisiana the whig press stood Forth of Tho excellence advocates of entire and unrestrained religious Freedom and Tho jealous enemies of All religious intolerance. 6lrong was the outside Public sentiment it created that if we recollect aright the first legislature which met in new Hampshire after the canvass of 1852, took stops to erase from its Cote Stit ution the obnoxious restriction Anil Quot As soon of practicable the erasure was accomplished. Somo members of Gen. Scott a family had professed the roman Catholic Faith and at least one of his daughters had taken the veil. These considerations were urged with great Power As justly commending the whig party to the conf Dunco and support of the Catholic population of America. Now the party whih then stood Forth so zealous in. Its Defiance of religious toleration is merged in a secret organization whose members Are bound by secret oaths to act upon the very principle they professed to regard so Heterodox then a and now the Faith of some Mem bars of his family Tho very consideration upon which they Qun. Scott to Tho american people two years since would to a just reason for excluding him from full com to Union in their secret Couch avs. Such is history. _ Wii Atis a ton Smout a Tho supreme court of Pennsylvania recently decided that Accord. Ing to Tho lairs of this state a ton uought consisted of 2000 lbs., and that a greater number of pounds could not to legally exacted in purchasing a too of Coal notwithstanding to custom of giving 2,210 in one part of who state and 2,268 in another. Tho United states District court has decided in a suit in admiralty that Tho Legal weight of a ton of Coal is 2,240 lbs., and that Tho Coal dealers have no Moro right to a How not tag committed. The following sketch of a k. N. Committee is by one of their argon the new York Herald a a. It a by amp Glat Llotys proceedings Oftie Massa whole evidence has been it now stands confessed to the world that a committee of the legislature of Massachusetts have violated the highest Laws of the land by forcing their Way into a private Seminary at Roxbury and trampled under fit Tho rules of decency by insulting the harmless defenceless females whom they found there. The legislature had no right to appoint a committee to enter any private dwelling House whether used As a school or fur any other Pur. P03c. Such an act was a Yood their Powers and if Tho owner by the Seminary they entered had shot them dead on the threshold the Law would have held Liim harmless. There was no danger of anything of the kind Tho House being occupied by ladies and the committee preceded on their task fearlessly. A having entered the building they proceeded to acts of blackguard ism and indecency which the worst mob could hardly have exceeded.�?? some scattered and searched the private rooms of the institutions leaving but one Linon closet which happened to to locked a starched. A others followed Tho Superior questioning her in a rude indelicate manner and behaving As they might have done had the building been an Asylum for penitents instead of a private school. One brute forced himself into a bedroom where a poor sick girl Lay m bed and approached her so closely that she it his breath on her another actually placed his hands on the person of a female teachers several of the party thrust themselves into the Chapel and by their rude irreverent language frightened away a lady who was in prayer at the time. And the men who did these things Are members of the Massachusetts legislature. far As these individuals this Clvis Are concerned the Bare statement of their conduct is More crushing than any epithets however severe or however merited. But the american party has a perform which cannot be neglected. The Massachusetts know nothings must pm urge themselves of Tho society of such men As these. The members of Thor def in tether states can have no communion with individuals who break into houses or insult defenceless females and if tic k. No sirt tic Bay state do not cleanse their ranks by expelling such agents of defilement the order will Cut itself adrift from the councils of mas3achu setts. _ com lug Down on thera.

Yet in the face of such injudicious and extra Vangant legislation As has marked the course of councils during Tho past year what do we find ? so far As we can judge from the action yet taken in the matter it appears that a majority of the a Trescot members will be returned and that in Many cases men scarcely More fit will succeed those who Are to go omit. If this thing to tolerated what May we expect 1 a will not die Treasury be bankrupted by a wasteful if not a corrupt squandering of the Peoples Money will not taxation become onerous and oppressive beyond endurance a will not All the interests of the citizens to injured to a fatal extent and general discontent disorder and licentiousness prevail in our civil affairs ? is there no remedy for this fearful tcndflncy.flf.diin5z. a tip Bir it to go on without it struggle to arrest it ? will not Tho citizens who have individually a Large stake in our municipal welfare the men of property the Roon of business Tho men of intelligence virtue and Publio spirit arouse themselves in this extraordinary emergency and resolve by a United and vigorous movement Independent All party distinctions to Sut Down the baneful influences which arc Evi cantly ruling politically the local fortunes of the common july and purify and elevate and strengthen the City legislature putting aside the unworthy candidates who Are aspiring to places in it for selfish ends and electing representatives fit to be entrusted with Tho Public interests ? a Reform movement is imperatively needed and we Hope to see it speedily begun and carried out.

Amiee Mill Sunato on Friday says the Harrisburg Patriot passed an act repealing Tho Turco Mill tax paid by Tho Pennsylvania Railroad on Coal and lumber. Thetis an onious measure the cud of which is not yet. If Tho act becomes a Law and we Aro inclined to think it will it will deprive the Commonwealth of considerable Revenue besides rendering Tho stale works less productive. What is lost to to people however is gained by a corporation or rather by Somo of Tho officers of Tho company and a few of their Telb is the entering wedge to Tho entire repeal of Tho tonnage tax and Tho sacrifice of Tho Public works.

It is it a reported Battle-�?3000 killed and wound Cut a a a a a new Yonkt april 22,1855. The steamship Nashville arrived at noon today bringing dates from Liverpool and London to the 7th inst. On the second Day from new York on the outward passage of Trio Nashville mrs. Ross Riley one of the passengers suddenly Digap scared and it wa3 supposed she Ltd thrown Erse if overboard. the peace conference. The Vienna conference having adjourned till the 0th. To await the russian Ultima Tum and the arrival of the French and Turlish min is tvs of foreign affairs at Vienna there is no news from that Point. A a the consideration of the third Point would he the first subject before the conf Crenic pub Lac opinion seems to to about equally divided As to what will be the final redux. A from the Crimea. A there has been a succession of sanguinary conflicts Between the French and russians before Sebastopol for the Possession of the Rifle Ambuscade i is with varying Success but much loss. It Tho latest reported Battle occurred Oigt the night of the 23d, and in which 3000 men were killed and wounded Gen. Canrobert states in his despatches that in the affairs of March 22d and 23d, the russians lilt 2000, and the allies 500. A sf.1ge of sea Smorol. Cunti Mcd fighting for Possession of the Rife a pits great sacrifice of life. A since Tho Date of previous advices Tho has been a series of fierce sorties and assaults Between the russians and French for Possession of the Rifle Ambuscade in front of the French position and under the a Nakoff Tower these Rifle pits which have led to so considerable a sacrifice of life arc placed in front and to the right and left of the Fourer and about 000 Yards from the Allied works they Are merely excavations in the ground faced round with Sand bags and banked with Earth Loop holed fortifies. They arc six in number and each contain ten men go in All. Gen. Bosq not considers in a Point of Honor to take and hold or destroy these Ambuscade. To has several times by night assaults driven out the russians but As these pits Are covered by the fire of the City batteries the French have hitherto found it in possible either to destroy or hold them. The importance of this Post lion tooth besiegers and besieged is very great. To Malakoff round Tower is regarded and the key of the defences and hence the Energy of the russians m strengthening it. Considerably in Advance 6f the Tower is the elevated Mound or Hill now called the a Imam Elk no on which tic besieged Are erecting a Battery of great strength. A Little farther in Advance is an Eminence recently seized so skilfully by. Tho russians and. Fortified with car works it is now crowned by a Square redoubt with-10 guns visible on its three outward sides but they Havo not yet opened of these defences arc the Rifle the russian batteries it in Kumian their forts on the a Thor Side of Tho Tchon Ava and the work of Malakoff cover this redoubt and converge on inc approaches in front of it. This explanation will convey an idea of the strength of the position which Tho French nightly contest. Dates of to encounters As follows during the night of March 14th, their was a Tierce affair1. The russians had advanced some riflemen in front of the French lines who caused considerable annoyance. When night fell amp Dumi brigade of French went Down and drive them out. A the City batteries along the front immediately opened and continued a cannonade for half an hour during which a stronger Force of Tho enemy advanced on the French and compelled them to retire with a loss a a i Wen the russian loss bring probably More severe. The russians re occupied the pits. On the night or inc 15th, the French renewed Tho attack and succeeded with comparatively Little loss in driving out Tho enemy a riflemen and occupying the pits with their own. The French continued to hold those on the right under a heavy fire Over the Lgth Ami 17th March. A night of Tho. 17th, yet another encounter took place. At a nth a amp to six of clock in the evening the French who bad retired before the Tiro from the batteries marched Down to re occupy the Ambuscade but found Tho russians had anticipated them. A fierce conf it immediately commenced but it was evident the russians were in Strong Force and Tho French again and again borne Barb by Tho weight of fire. For four hours and a half Lwy persevered in their attempts and All that time a continuous Roll of musketry rang out broken Only by Brief pauses in the Advance. In these lulls the British could distinctly hear the voices of the French officers Che eng on their men�?4en Anant Mes infant an apart zouave a and Tho tramp of oct and the Rush of men. Follow a then a Roll of musketry was heard diminishing in volume to rapid file then a russian cheers then More musketry a few dropping shots and Tho voices of the officers once More. The zouave Boro the Brunt of the fight and the action was somewhat Peculiar As artillery took no part in it. Tho British 2d, 3d,4tn and Light divisions were told off for Tho entire British Camp remained under arms until the French desisted from their attack but As the Gallant French make it a Point of Honor to Toko those pits without Aid no assistance was offered. The French were 5000 Strong and they state their loss at 150 killed and to minded besides a few Tho 18th, a reinforcement of 15 000 men entered Sebastopol. None of Tho russian batteries fired a shot to Day. Tho russians Continuo to throw up defences from the ravines of Inkerman to the sea Sido South of Tho Belbeck. To Day another body of russians apparently about 15,000 Strong was observed to March towards Mackenzie s farm and Scro reported to have crossed Tho tech Craayo and advanced upon Baldan. At four p. M., of the 18lh, Gen. Canrobert with a Small escort passed Down Tho Woron sow Road by Tho British right attack and carefully examined the at Nightfall a Strong Force of French with six fluid Piccus was moved Down on Tho left of their extreme right and another unsuccessful attempt was Mado to take the pits from the russians. After some hours heavy firing of artillery and Small arms both parties withdrew. Throe unsuccessful attacks were Mado by to French Ere morning their loss was about 180. Tho British batteries on Tho 18th, continued to throw shot and Shell into Tho Mamels nor new redoubt. The russians succeeded in holding Tho pits and Aro engaged in constructing a formed nolo work on Tho Mamels although frequently interrupted by Tho French and English batteries.
