Quot we published about a week since a Brief statement of the wreck of Tho French ship St Paul on the Island of Rossel in South Pacific in september last and the subsequent massacre of three Hundred and Twenty nine of her three Hundred and thirty chinese passengers. The survivor was rescued by the Steamer styx and has furnished the following narrative to the Sydney Australia papers Quot the ship went on Shore during the night and when she struck the passengers All rushed on deck making a great outcry upon which the Captain drove them All below Fain. When Daylight broke we landed by Means of the boats on an Island where we remained two Days without any water when some of us went on Board the ship again to get some As also provisions. The Captain left in his boat with some of the Crew and to were not disturbed by the natives for a month after he was gone they then came Over from the Mainland dista it about three quarters of a mile and made an attack on us. Some of us had double barrelled carbines but we got frightened and threw them away. The Only White Man left with us after the departure of clip Jiin Pennard was a greek who having armed himself with a Cutlass fought desperately and killed a great Many of the natives before he was overpowered. They Uljon took ail our clothing&c., which the partly destroyed. Any valuables that they found such As sovereigns rings &c., they placed in a net bag which each Man carried round Iii neck. A watch particularly excited their attention As they were continually opening it to observe the reflection of their faces in the Glass. At night we were placed in the Center of a Clear piece of ground Anil fires lit in several places the natives keeping a regular watch Over us and during the Day they would select four or five chinese and after killing them roast the flesh and eat it what was not consumed being deposited in their nets. Their Mode of proceeding was As follows the victim being decided on they were taken out and beaten All Over excepting the head with a kind of club and then dispatched by ripping the stomach open. The body was then Cut up in Small pieces and divided the fingers toes and brains being eagerly sought after the Bonos wore then collected and either Burnt or thrown away. I saw ten of my fellow passengers killed in this Way. On one occasion some of the chinese took a boat which belonged to the ship and went Over to the Mainland at night to get some water but never returned so we to night they had been killed. Every Day they brought us coconuts or some wild roots to eat and appeared to be quite Friendly with us. This state of things continued until i was taken off Quot the Island. When 1 left there were Only four chinese and the greek alive All the rest having been killed. I saw these five the Day the Steamer came in sight but when the natives saw the boats coming on Shore they took them to Tho mountains. I was sick and lame and they would not carry to so that i watched my Opportunity and contrived to conceal myself among the rocks until Tho boat came on Shore. They Are very numerous but do not appear to have any chiefs among them. They live on coconuts of which there Are Large quantities and a kind of Yam which they roast before eating but beyond a few dogs i saw neither animals nor fowls of any death of or. H. A. Ackley.

Britain is growing up in the North it it is whether tiie bound Ait line a Quot the United St Tel Ittig Britain As defined by the Oregon treaty of 1846, was intended to run through the Straits or Rosario or the canal de Haro. This Ais Froni the Indef Nate language of the first Quot article of the treaty which declares that the line Quot shall be con tinted Westward along the 4th parallel a a to the Middle of the Channel which separates the continent Fitim Vancouver s Island and thence southerly through the Middle of the said Channel Quot amp a. There Are several channels no one deserving the title of Quot tie the English claim that the Boundary should run through the Straits of Rosario eastward of the Oreas and Lopez islands the americans that it should run through the canal de Haro Between san j uan and Vancouver s islands. This difference of understanding give Rise to a disputed government claim to a number of islands of no great value commercially or agricultural but of some importance consequent upon the discovery of Gold in Frazer River and the influx of set tiers Many of whom desire to pre empt lands on the islands. The English have a notion that that they Are valuable for military purposes and for the location of naval arsenals. English settlers on Vancouver have used them As sheep pastures. Both classes of settlers Are anxious to claim the lands believing there is speculation in them and Large profits to be realized in some manner unexplained. Tho papers in that Quarter Are discussing the matter vigorously and the americans and English taking sides As their interests dictate. As president Buchanan was a party to the negotiation he will be fully prepared to say what was the understanding on the part of our government at least. Death of a Little girl ibid exposure to the rain All night. The Corre Deni of the.

From the Indianapolis journal april29th. Strenuous exertions Are making to have the third presbyterian Church read for occupancy by the time of the meeting of the general Assembly on the 19th of May. The Walls and ceiling have been frescoes in Gay colors too Gay we think the pews Are All placed and painters Are Busy finishing the Orna menting of the Wood the Pew cushions and pulpit trimmings Are to be of Crimson and the window shades of a Buff color. This finishing with the Gay yellow re and Blue of the Walls and ceiling will give the audience room of Tho Church much the appearance of a Public Hall. We do not know whose taste selected these colors but in our judgment they Are not subdued for a when the whole of the work is completed the appearance May be better than the imagination at present pictures it. We shall speak of it again when it is ready for occupancy. Externally the building is handsome but rather too High for its length the proportion not being altogether architecturally Correct. The completion of the Tower is deferred for the present the object now being to get the body of the building ready for occupancy. The pastor and several members of his congregation have been unceasing in their exertions to finish the building which has assumed its present proportions in the midst of stringent times and at a period of a general depression in business. The Church is the most expensive religious edifice in the City. A a it in Lon Doit press on american institutions. From tie Lon it ii times of Maru a 23. Human nature is not changed nor parliamentary nature improved by Tho action of democratic institutions. In Many respects the american Congress is not so Well managed As the British parliament in no respect is it better managed. There is just As much party feeling there and party feeling is just As obstructive to Public As a matter of fact too it is perfectly certain that abuses of administration attain to a greater magnitude in America than Here. More jobs Are perpetrated for party purposes and All that machinery of faction which forms so deplorable a drawback on constitutional government is far More Active and More comprehensive in the United states than it has Ever been in this country. If in Short we take an impartial Survey of the United states and their government to shall be induced to conclude that the advantages of that country Are almost if not entirely Independent of its the states Are prosperous not because their government makes them so but because the resources of their territory Are largely in excess of their present population. They Are lightly taxed not because their govern ment is either economical or forbearing for it is notoriously aggressive but because the youth of their state leaves them with utile debt and their geographical position exempts them from any need of warlike establishments except for the purpose of Conquest. If however they Are to go on As they have begun they will assuredly accumulate debt and embarrassment at a much earlier period of National existence than we did and in the interval it is Plain that they cannot boast of a better or More Businesslike administration. Oct the editor of the new York Mer cry tells the following amusing Story of his Only attempt at a serenade it was on a dark night several years ago that the August president of the club induced a party of deluded friends to assist him in keeping a delightful Dulcinea awake by Means of vocal demonstrations. Arriving on the pave in front of the House we executed some elaborate Arias from Quot Lucrezia Bornais Quot Quot Trava tora Quot and Quot Don Giovanni Quot aided and abetted by our companions in choruses that ranged from one octave below the diaphragm to several howls above the of Frontis. Our programme finished to retired to our Domestic institution while the chorus roamed languidly to similar establishments. Now Mark the result. We visited the serenaded amp in one on the following Day her eyes strayed the fact that she had passed it sleepless night and with a palpitating heart we tendered our hypocritical Sminthy. 0 yawned the lady Quot there wag such a noise in the Street last night some Pouce Nien were taking an intoxicated coloured Man to the Sutton House and he in and wore 80 dreadfully just �8 they came in front of our door that the whole Nugh boyhood was aroused.

Ill. Ii us i to a remix no Mai Ira a to a a Tim a it. In a in a m mme the following extracts Are from the new York Herald a Buchanan Sheet. They show that the cohesive Power of Public plunder is the Only principle which can be relied upon to keep the party together. Quot is there any Hope for the forlorn democracy divided and subdivided into sections factions cliques and Little wrangling presidential cabals As we now find this lately All powerful party is there any Hope of re uniting its broken fragments for the great Battle of 1860? the Prospect is gloomy but there is yet a Hope. To be sure there is a split in the Pennsylvania Camp a rebellion in the Louisiana Camp a presidential division and various local discords in the Virginia Camp and hostile cliques and hot quarrels Here there Are everywhere among the rank and file which seem to defy All the agencies of peace but still upon or. Calhoun s great saving Cardinal principle of the party the cohesive Power of the Public plunder there is a Hope for the salvation of the party and for its effective re Union in 1860.&Quot. From these refreshing examples of the past there is still a Hope for the furious democracy in 1860. They have shown Over and Over again that they can be combined at the tap of the drum by the Quot cohesive Power of the Public plunder.,. Place the spoils and plunder of the preside Jcj before them Tell them the Day of Battle is at hand that Union is their Only Chance and they will Rush into each other s arms like a band of Brothers and till the Battle is Over will stick to their common cause like Cobbler s Wax. They make a terrible uproar meantime we admit and keep the country in hot water upon constitutional questions principles state rights and such things but the great que tons of the spoils comprehends everything which a Good Democrat feels it to be his highest privilege and holiest duty to live for labor for fight for and die for. Upon this word of magic the Quot spoils Quot a depend his Success his Hopes and his Faith in the resurrection. Landing of slaves at she South. We have information which appears to be reliable that a cargo of slaves were landed at the Mouth of the about fifteen months ago unknown to the United states authorities. The United states Consul at Ingua Turk s Island in a private letter writes As follows "1 have just been informed of an interesting circumstance in regard to the Landing of slaves near new Orleans and having seen no reference to the transaction in our american papers and feeling confident of the truth of the statement i Send it to you with All the particulars i could gather from the author who was on Board. Quot John James an English boy Seaman who shipped on Board the English bark Esther Francis at St. Jago and was wrecked at this Island in january last says that he sailed from Tho port of Philadelphia in the summer of 1857, for Havanna Iii the ship. Of new York and that he sailed in the same from Leavanna to the coast of Africa where they took on Board a cargo of slaves at a place called As he thinks Baraba and that they landed the same slaves near the Mouth of Tho to the n. E. Of it in january 1858. They landed 600, and lost Only about a dozen on the voyage that they landed them in their boats without molestation there being no settlement at the spot and that they immediately proceeded from Trio place of debarkation to new of leans and reported As he Learned from the second mate to be from the coast of Africa. He says they fell in with no cruisers on the voyage which occupied from six to eight months. He does not remember the name of the Captain or mate. Quot i have no doubt of the correctness of the boy s statement and was astonished to know that such a Trade was carried on boldly on our own the boy John James who is a full grown Stout serviceable hand before the Mast tells the Story with every appearance of truthfulness supplying details with minuteness As suggested by inquiries made. He says that the Crew and officers of the ship seemed to be foreigners there were few if any americans on Tward. The vessel proc de direct to the Africa i coast remaining at Anchor about two weeks at by Raba the slaves being meanwhile sent off to the ship in boatloads As fast As collected ii rom the Interior a very few , and at oth.

The a Der Catkin he the ask a novel and unusual Civit action is now being tried in the Superior court at go Lumc bus. The action is a suit brought by Lucius a. Bowers a not Ira a. Preston his wife Margaret Preston and Aaron Griffin All residents of Perry Towbri Iipp Franklin co., to recover fifteen to housed dollars damages sustained by the plaintiff bowels by the alienation of the affections of his wife Mary e. Bowers formerly Mary e. Kent and and the eventual Sef Tion of the pair produced by the Uniat fit Lonsin racy confederation and contrivance of the said defendants. The parties in this Case Are All highly respectable and of Good character. The plaintiff or. Bowers is a very intelligent Man about thirty one you of age and of Good appearance his wife is also intelligent of repossessing appearance and is about twin to years of age. She occupied a seat in 5ourt, and appears to sympathize altogether with the defendants. From the mass of testimony in the Case we Gaither Rhese Points or. And mrs. Bower were married in Bardstown Illinois in 1858 she As it would seem entertaining a Neutral affection for him by the persuasion of her friends and at his. Own Earnest entreaties. They were married but a Short time when As it is alleged the defendants persuaded her to leave him the defendants it is said though this has not yet appeared in the evidence were instigated to this by an old rival of Tho plaintiff and come to Ohio which she attempted to do but was overtaken on the Way by her husband and was easily induced to stay with him. The defendants however continued their efforts and finally succeeded in separating or. Bowers and his wife and they both came to Franklin county she to seek Refuge among her friends he to renew his efforts to regain her. The principal reason and justification of the defendants for their part appears to be that though they were married or. And mrs. Bowers were not Man and wife in a spiritual sence and were consequently miserable though no striking evidence. A great Deal of negotiation and Quot Palave ing Quot took place Between the rival houses before this suit and we hear that even an unsuccessful attempt was made by the plaintiff to sever the ties that bind him to Earth and prove at once his honesty and sincerity by shuffling off his mortal Coil. We believe the affair has undergone an examination by the Church and by the society of Odd Fel mrs but neither resulting in the restoration of his wife to or. Bowers he has now come Down to a civil court supplicating As a Balm for his Many wounds damages in the round sum of .$15,000. What the real cause of Tho trouble is has not yet transpired.

Dii Puy its acting president one who did not know the character of that Sheet and its motive for the abuse might have been led to suppose that there Wias really something very wrong in the management of that Road that the Public Good required should be corrected and so confident was the editor of that paper thai 1e<ould make the directors account to thir Public and particularly to him a self constituted Champion of its rights that he proposed to go to Pittsburgh in his own p opia a personae Aadi superintend that election and see that every thing was done As it ought to be. And to give himself the appearance of great consequence he advertised under his own name in his own paper for several Days previous to that election that he would go to Pittsburgh and would take the proxies of All who would entrust him with their votes. In that notice he mentioned that he could then control some $10, xxx of the Stock. Well the Day arrived for the departure of the stockholders for the scene of action. The agents of the Road offered him a half fare ticket As they did to All other stockholders who wished to attend the election but this he disdainfully refused preferring to pay $9 65 Money As he boasted of in his letters to his paper written on the Way which sum he said he intended the company should pay him he was not he elided the Man who could be bought with half fare tickets. Not he he was too honest too honorable too High minded to accept so humiliating a position As to take a half fare ticket. He wanted to be Independent so that he could remain in a position to fight the Railroad managers with weapons fierce and terrible. Well the election Quot came off and nearly All the Stock of the company was voted to reelect the old Board of directors. It came very near being a unanimous vote probably nearer than was Ever witnessed in any other election in the history of that Road or any other in this country. The editor of the times cast his $10,000 Worth of Stock Ani we believe about $3,500 More against two of the members of the old Board. That with about 4,000 shares out of some 80,000, was All that was voted against the old managers and All that was Ever heard of John w. Dawson the determined Champion and corrector of All the evils in the management of that Enterprise was that he As Ledfor an introduction to the acting president or. Do pay whom to had All along been abusing with such violence and that poor Boon was refused him and not satisfied with that rebuke he salted for ail Oua ined a pass to gel himself Julie with so that he might not pay another $9 65, which he would have to fight for terribly afterwards to get Back again. Next we witness him at Home continuing his abuse from Day to Day of this same or. Dupuy. At last the Board of directors Are to meet at this place. They assembled last evening the 26th inst at the Rock Hill House and in the times of yesterday Dawson asks or. Dupuy Quot what about that pass Quot Here we see the motive. The company has not Given him a pass. He has been firing Atheni in the vain expectation that he would frighten them into his demands but finding that they paid no More attention to his Barking than they would to a Little dog he has concluded to petition for a poor fellow it would ease his pocket so much that we Are disposed to think the company ought to give him one. He could Well forego All the cherished principles he clams to have had at stake in this warfare. He could afford to cast aside All his boasted Independence. He could choke Down All the indignity he Felt and pretended to exhibit when a half fare ticket to Pittsburgh and Back was offered him and which he refused if he note could Only get a he can now take Tho risk of his own life and Tho safety of his own Bones if they will Only give him a they need not strike off the conditions on the Back of the ticket that All who accept it not to ipod to the company for a wages for any injury or loss sus Taine while travelling on the Road with such ticket Quot a he will take All that risk him self Only give him the that s All he asks now.

We shall briefly notice a Point or two of this stuff and let the rest go for what it is Worth. In the first place the popular sovereignty doctrine about which the times not Only now but All along for a year or so past has been rating about considerable every body knows is an exploded Humbug. We mean of course the doctrine As explained by its Peculiar Champion Quot Douglas. The demo Fatic party which placed it As a Plank in their platform have in practice utterly repudiated it. They have brought the whole Power of government to Bear against it in the management of the territories and the whole Southern democracy Are now demanding congressional interference to establish slavery in the territories instead of letting the people the popular sovereigns manage As they please and besides All this the supreme court in the dred Scott Case claim to have decided a principle in direct opposition to this Dogma for they claim to have decided that the Constitution carries slavery into the territories in spite of the will of the people and this decision the democracy have endorsed. This cast off Plank once in the democratic Creed the times thinks the opposition should adopt. So much then for that Humbug. Next the Quot dead issues Quot a what Are they Why opposition to the Extension and increasing Power of slavery the times would have ignored altogether while the so called democratic party Are wedded to its Extension in every Way possible. How can that become a dead Issue shall both parties give it up will the democratic party cease to use their influence for its Extension and the republicans cease to oppose it no it is not claimed that the democracy shall Stop pressing their Side of the question but that the opposition should Stop opposing it they should ignore it altogether let the democracy extend it As far As they will without opposition. That is what the times would like to have adopted and with a singular infatuation Calls such opposition now a dead Issue when it knows Well enough and what every body fee knows that at this very moment the democracy Are perfectly rampant and mad with the desire and determination to extend the Power of slavery at All Hazzards it is that Power which seeks to Annex Cuba Chihuahua and Sonora to this country. It is that Power that is filibustering in Nicaragua. It is that Power which has in violation of the Laws of the land opened up the slave Trade and Are now importing africans into Georgia and Louisiana. It is that Power which prevented a jury in South Carolina recently from convicting the men engaged in that Trade when brought up for a violation of the Laws of the United states in that particular yet the pretended con Servati ism of the times requires that the people of the North should shut their eyes to All this ignore it altogether Call it a Quot dead Issue and go Back to the doctrine of the old whig party and adopt popular sovereignty. This advice too is Given with so much apparent Gravity As if there was really something in it that ought to be heeded. We say it is superlative hypocrisy and a mis statement of facts and is intended to deceive the people of the North into quietness upon the subject of the Extension of slavery in the Hopes that the democracy May again slip into Power and that out of their Success the editor of the times May secure some personal Benefit. No the Man who advises against opposition to Extension and info Ienco of slavery is an enemy to the Republican a to and an enemy to All who Are opposed to the pro sent filing Dyn to and should not be listened to for one Zno ment. Sickles acquitted., our the graph pates of to Day announce the fact that the Jay in the d. Sickle s Case have rendered a verdict of Row guilty Quot and that the greatest excitement prevailed in court among the vast number of people there ass embed on hearing the result there were loud Huzzah i Axvig of hats and other demonstrations of Joy which could not be suppressed. We infer that the jury were out but a Short time though the dispatches a not say so. That this result is what has been expected for some time past All will admit. The efforts that were made to form Public opinion in favor of the accused about Washington the sympathy with him by the reporters of the associated press the publicity Given to mrs. Sickle s confession All looked to results such As Are now announced.
