FIVE MEN DANGEROUSLY STABBED.
—A quarrel occurred at a coffee house,
in New Orleans, on the 31st ult., be
tween two along-shore men, named
John Bradford and James Murphy,
when Bradford severely stabbed Mur
phy in the head and neck with a dirk
knife. Rosamond Cheaneyder and
Oscar Berlin, two officers of the Third
Municipality police, in attempting to
arrest him, were severally-stabbed by
him—Chexneyder in the abdomen, and
Bertin in the right thigh. Jose Her.
nandez and Ferdinand Bonzon, twa
other officers, were also stabbed. Bon
ion being cut in the left cheek, from
his ear to his chin, and Hernandez in
the abdomen. Bradford was arrested,
only when severely cut by a broad
sword and overpowered by numbers.
Hernandez lies in dprecarious and dan
gerous state, and -some doubts are en
tertained of his recovery. The wounds
of the others, though severe, are not
considered dangerous. Bradford is
lodged in prison.
Murtota tv PENssvi.vAst,t.—The
Pittsburg American, of Nov. 4, records
the murder of Flavius Spencer, by two
men whose names are O'Brien and
Johnson, residing in Alleghany town='
ship in Armstrong county. O'Brien
and Johnson were returning home from
town, when they picked a quarrel with
a man named Hileman, a friend of Spen
cers's, who came up at the time. Hile
man appears to hays been in danger of
his life from these two, when Spencer
interfered, at which one of them struck
him several times, while. the other came
behind, and dealt him a blow in the
neck which knocked him down, when
one of them, it is not known which,
jumped upon his head with his feet
and broke his scull. He died almost
immediately. O'Brien and Johnson
'fled. A reward, it is said, will be of
fered for them. Spencer is described
as having been an innocent and inoffen
sive man. It occurred in the Narrows.
about two miles below Kittanoing.

BOAT SrE AND TITO LIVES PROBA
BLY LOST.,—.-The Norfolk Beacon states
that a young man, named Jesse
wards, with a boy about fifteen years
of age, named Thomas Tucker. left that
city on Sunday, morning last in an
open boat for the purpose\of conveying
two passengers to Hampton, and have
not been heard of since. The boat
was taken up on Wednesday, having
been sunk about a mile from Parker's
or Latnbert's Point. It is supposed
that the boat was capsized in the squall
on Sunday night on their return 'to

PRAISEWORTILY AND HONORABLE.-
The Mayor of Lobisville •ecently in
formed the Common Council of that
City, that he has taken the responsi

ill-fated Lucy Walker with clothes and
other necessities, required by the sud

curred. The Common Council, on
their fast meeting. unanimously ap
propriated $lOOO to meet the contin

A SIGNIFICANT Etc-T.—Rhode
land—poor, abject, despised,: down
trodden Rhode Island—is the only
State in the Union in which Federal
ism has increased its• vote since 1840.
Gen. Harrison carried it by 1,977 ma
jority. Mr. Clay has succeeded by
2,502, strewing a Federal increase of
525. We rejoice in this result. We
are heartily glad that the Algerine des
pots of ,Rhode Island, the merciless
persecutors of the patriotic DORR, have
recorded their preference for Mr. Clay.
It is in perfect accordance with their
principle—or rather want of it.
Goon Bust::Ess.—The -HallOwel
(Maine,] Cultivator says the proprietors
of the steamboat Penobscot, will divide
from $4O to $50.000 from the steam
boat business the present season. This
is probably full 100 per cent, on the
capital. The Penobscot runs from
Kennebec to Boston.
The Portland Argus says the Char
ter Oak, which runs from Bangor to
Boston, via Portland, has cleared $25,-
000 during this season.
,PRAIRIE u, FIRE.—On the'evening
of the 30th tilts., a fire broke out in the
Monticello prairie, a few miles back
of Alton, Illinois, and raged with great
fury. Many farms were over-run by
the fire-, and the .fences, barns, out
houses and crops destroyed. The
farm of Mr. Carey, the superintendent
of the Monticello Female Seminary,
was much injured, and all the buildings
on it consumed except the dwellings.
The light was visible at St. Louis, a
distani \ :e of more than twenty miles.
young man named Scott, lately from
Pennsylvania, was accidentally killed
on Friday evening, of last week, by the
bursting of a cannon at Mason, Warren
county, Ohio. The cannon was being
discharged to celebrate a political vic
tory in said township. After putting
in The load, the cannon was filled par
tially with clay that caused the explo
sion, a piece of folly that no man in his
right senses could be guilty of. Scott
was the mast who applied the match.—
lie was killed almost ♦ instantly by a
piece of the gun striking his breast.
BETTING ON ELECTIONS.—Apropos
of betting, here is a specimen, from a
Michigan paper, which is the best bet
on the,election we have seen. Some
Yankee girl in offering to bet on Polk's
election with any respectable, good
looking ycung man, as follows : ..The
stakes shall be the parties ; if Polk is
elected, I win, and marry the gentle
man who bets against me ; if he is not,
the gentleman wins and marries me."
