New YORK Cssraay.—The New York Tribune says'
—" there appears to be some uncertainty in regard to
the opening of our Canals. It was supposed that naviga.
tion would be resumed about the sth or 10th of next
month, but the news from Albany is that'some needed
repairs will occupy more time than was anticipated, and
that it is doubtful if the Canal will be navigable.hefore
the 55th or 30th of April. This will be a great disap
pointment to our forwarders and business men. Mean
while the Pennsylvania public works will be reaping
Ores-lye or vac Paxxsitrsais CANAL—Theilar
risburg Union of Thursday says:—" The water is now
letting into the division of the Canal between Duncan's
Island artd Harriiburg; and we learn from the Canal
Conimissioners that the whole of the main line from
Harrisburg to Pittsburg,- will be opened on Saturday
next. This will make a continous communication be.
tween Philadelphia and Pivaburg, as large amounts of
goods are now shipping by railroad west. In another
week the repausnear Columbia will be completed, when
the whole of the main line will be put in operation."
WcoT BILANCII Csar•t..—The Miltonian aaya that
the West Branch canal has suffered but very' little, and
can be repaired by the first of April. '
From the Pennsylvania Reporter of March 29th
Stepping into Herr'e Hotel yesterday, a friend of ours
introduced us to Co.l Thomas Hazard, the well known
itnrillnent Bridge Architect and Builder, who is now
on a Nribit to the borough of Harrisburg. We were
shown, in company with many others, a model of his
imprpVed Suspension Bridge, lately patented, and for
which be received the premium of the American Insti
tute of New York, at its fair in October last.
We understand that a great number of Bridges have
been built by this gentleman, and are now in use,
among which may be mentioned those on the following
roads (without the recent Improvements,) viz : the Bos
ton and Albany Railroad, the New York, Providence
and Boston Railroad, the Norwich and Worcester Rail
road, and the New Jersey Transportation Railroad Cora.
A CoMmittee of the Boston and Albany Railroad
Company having, in 1844, been appointed by the Board
of-Dinettes to procure the best plan for Bridging; and
after a careful examination of the different Omnipresent
ed to them, Col. Hassanl's was adopted, and orders were
immediately given for materials for the reconstruction of
seems! of their Bridges.
As many of our citizens in this State have been so un
fortunate as to loose their Bridges during the recent flood
we perhaps cannot do better at the present moment than
idvise them to call on Col. H., who will take pleasure
eiraescribing the advantages and merits of his newly
tented Bridge. The principles embraced in this place
are, that the chords, both lower and zipper, are confined
together ;Abe cast iron shoe at the head ind foot of the
main brace secured to the post, thereby- relieving the
timber from the immense strain which is produced in the
ordinary way of framing, whereby the ends braced are
continually forcing and wearing against the upper and
lower chords and posts, and slackening the frame-work
braces. By the ingenious application of a wedge at the
foot; the brace can be keyed high up without removing
any of the timbers, and with very trifling labor.
Col. Has and has associated with him Mesars.Tappen

York, will be punctually attended to. 2t.
TIIT. , TIItAL Ow ALBERT J. TIBRELL.—The
testimony for the prosecution in this case, closed
on Wednesday, when the counsellor the prison.
er addressed the jury. and urged as his main
ground of defence, that the prisoner at the bar
was subject lofts of somnambulism from. his
youth, which showed itself not only in harmless
acts. but also in those which were violent, such
as attacks upon his wife and other individuals
while in this state. Many of these instances he
itaraedand said he should prove. That although
he should not admit the homicide here charged.
yet he firmly believed before heaven . that the
prisoner at the bar was, on that horrible night,
laboring under the effects of the disease. He
:nil urged that this disease was connected in
some degree with 'insanity. During the most
part of Wednesday Tirrell's wife and child were
in court. Her appearence is highly respectable.
and she is represented to be altogether a more
lady-like and betlei looking woman than was
the late Mrs. Orickferd. The novel defence of
somnambulism, which has bent set up, has ex
cited considerable curiosity,
He has since been acquitted.

on &loam' Beach, about 'one mile n9rth of the
place where the John Minium and other ves
sels were wrecked on the night of the 15th of
February. - The wind at the time was blow

ordered the masts cut away in order to ease
her, and although she thumped heavily during
the night, she remained perfectly tight until a
bout day-light on Wednesday, when the keel
broke orr, and she sprung aleak. At this junc
ture Mr. Cooley. the. mate. with four of the
crew, went ashore in the life boat, and having
established a communication between • the
shore and the ship, a large hawser was sent off
from the latter, and made fast to the shore.
Mr. Cooley had a very narrow escape from
death, having been dravin under water by one
of the poor fellows while in the agonies of
death. He finally succeeded in freeing him-
self from the death grasp. but was senseless
wheelie was drawn to the beach._ .
Mr. Coole7, as soon as he revived, was for
making another attempt to reach the ship, but
was advised against it by those who were•on
shore. Having understood Capt. Nye that he
wished him to communicate with New York,
he immediately set °frond reached New-Brus
wick in time to take the mail line which arriv
ed late on Wednesday night.
When he left the beach some eighty per
sons had collected, and manifested a strong de
sire to afford all the aid iu their power to save
those who were on board, there being upwards
of three hundred souls. of whom four were ca
bin passengers, two gentlemen and two ladies.
The wind had got around to the southward
and the surf was subsiding; and the opinion
of those on the shore was that all on board
would be saved.
The Henry Clay had no pilot on board, nor
had Captain Nye been able to take an obser
vation for two days. He had not seen the

W REEK OF THE HENRY CLAY—FURTHER
PairricuLans.—The passengers were all ea rely
landed from on board the ship Henry Clay, on
Thurday morning, and many of them reached
this city last evening. The ship lay. when
they left, with her head off shore and had very
little water in her.—No doubt was entertained
that she would be got off in a few days, and
that her cargo would be saved with but little
IVe learn that the unfortunate persons
drowned by the swamping of the life-boat on
Wednesday morning were two seamen named
Harley and Thompson ; three steerage -pas
sengers, viz :—John Felt, Farley, and
one, name unknown, and Charles —, and
Daniel McDonald, who were second cabin pas
It is stated that on Wednesday evening, Mr.
Forman, with a boat's crew of mariner', put off
to the ship and offered to undertake the peril
ous task of landing the passengers , but Capt.
Nye, believing that it would be useless to do
so until the weather moderated, pitidently de
clined the generous proposition. Capt. Nye,
Mr. Fletcher, of - Brooklyn, the first officer of
the ship, with two ladies, (the Misses Cunning
ham,) and two gentleman, cabin passengers,
and with 120 second cabin, and 145 steerage
passengers and the seamen spent that long
fearful night on board, in momentary expecta
tion of death.
By day-light on Thursday morning, the Jer
sey-men were anxiously on the alert to render
assistance, but the surf boat could not approach
the ship owing to the play of the wrecked spare.
By this time the Captain planned with Mr.
Forman, an ingenious method for saving all
hands. A derrick was rigged on the taffrad to
which a strong hawser was secured and the
other end was hawled ashore, and properly
made fast. A hogshead was then safely lashed
and slung, with a traveller and hauling lines, to
and from the ship. The hogshead was hauled
aboard, loaded with its human freight, and in
parties of twos and threes, all were by those ju
dicious means safely landed withouteven wet
ting their feet.
FURTHER PARTICULARS FROM THE SHIP
HENRY CLAY.—The steamboat OPUS Irons
Shresbury, came up yesterday afternoon with
about 200 passengers from the Henry Clay.
They state that the tide ebbs and flows in her,
and sk is some what bedded in the sand.—
Lighters were unable to lay alongside owing
to the heavy ground swell. If the weather
should continue moderate for a few days they
will endeavor to commence discharging her
cargo. and probably she may be got ofl.
FRESHET ON THE KENNEBEC.-.-WO copy the
following additional intelligence from the Eas
tern Argus of Monday morning :
We learn that the-waters on the Kenne

the rain and melting snow.
On Friday, about two o'clock, the whole
mass of ice between Augusta and Gardiner,

everything before it. The Store houses on

ThelCity Hotel was fired the night before in
a bed-room at the top of the house. --
The papers express great indignation and
much alarm at the incendiary attempts to plun

The proprietors of the Astor entertained the
firemen in sumptuous style, after their labors.
DREADFUL EFFECTS OF THE LATE STORM.-
The Norfolk Courier of the afternoon of the
7th inst. says that a very respectable citizen
of Notes Island. Currituck county, N. C., ar.
rived there on that morning, who stated that the
effects of the storm were mostly awfully expe
rienced on that part of the coast. He says
that fifty families were drowned on Nott's Is
land, and 1000 head-of cattle destroyed. The
wild fowl suffered severely—wild geese might
be taken in almost any quantity—some killed,
others so much crippled as to be easily seiz
ed being unable to escape.
We find the following paragraph in the Bal
timore American of the 11th inst. Unhappi
ly, it confirms the apprehensions we have had
occasion to express:
There4s great cause for fear that many lives
and much property have been last at sea in the
recent severe gales. A lame number of ves
sels have arrived at New York, Philadelphia
and this port within a day or two past, and
their officers all cones'. in representing the
gales of the 14th and Psth ult., and the 2d and
3d instant, as frightful. Scarcely a vessel that
comes into port has escaped injury ; many of
them have been very much damaged ; and the
number of vessels reported by them as aband
oned leaves no doubt that we are yet to hear
of serious disasters.
NoRTIIERN AlExico.—The Corpus Christi
Gazette states that letters have been received
from Cuidad Victoria, the capital of Tamauli
pas up to the 22d tilt. Paredes's government
has assumed a very war-like tone. Tamauli
pas was arming a kind of militia or police
force of 1000, by order of the governor—each
town or place furnishing one soldier to every
one hundred souls. - One of these letters says :
—.• Without a general call upon the people,
Tamaulipas can muster 4000 men, mostly cav
alry, besides the veteralna—and this force is
at the command of any conspicuous anddistin
guished chieftain, known as favorable to 'the
cause of the people.' and who shall declare
against Paredes. So that, unless something
strange shouldhappen, to compel them to unite
with the army, which is universally hated for
their oppression, we shall very soon have a
movement here, highly favorably to the United
States, and the course of humanity generally."
Gen. Arista was at his hacienda on the 21st.
The contemplated march of the Army of Oc
cupation from Corpus Christi, was known at
Victoria. Its march to the Rio Grand was loud.

ROLLING MILL AT DANYILLIL—This estab
lishment is now making about forty tons of
rail road iron per day. They have made as
high as forty-five tons per day. Three hun
dred tons of this railroad iron, contracted for
by the Reading Rail Road Company, is now
being taken on fiats across the river, says the
Democrat, and thence on wagons to Pottsville.
Several thousand tons, destined for the House

lying on the company's wharf, and awaiting
the opening of theiNarth Branch Canal.

,The news is Ivry important. As an evi

the other side of the water, we give the follow
ing extract of an article in the London Times
of March 4th. We italicize the most import
ant.part of the. extract.
• The news from America, -published this
morning, took the city completely by surprise.
and produced a fall of almost I per cent. in
Consols, from which they bad but slightly re
covered at all in the course of the day. The
closing price of yesterday for the Account was
ftf:li to 95. and the concluding price of io-day
061 to 4, but they were done at 95g. With
the exception of this very marked effect, it has
been unusually difficult to collect in detail any
opinions respecting this news. People here
are mostly disposed to regard the whole as a
continuation of that tone of bravado which the
House of Representatives, under the auspices
of the President, Mr. Polk has hitherto main
tained ; and to hope, therefore, that the same
feeling will not be exhibited in Senate. But
the most anxious question discussed here to
day has turned upon what course is likely to
be taken by our governtbent, should the notice
to abandon the Oregon territory be actually
given—that is. whether such notice would he
followed by an immediate hostile manifestation
or whether that would be reserved till the
twelve months had expired. From observa
tions that have dropped from Sir Robert Peel,
it is erroneously inferred that, in however, emu •
tebus a manner this notice might be conveyed,
it would be immediately resented; and there
fore the feeling which the news has produced
was, on the whole, a very uneasy one.
HORRIBLE AND BRUTAL MURDER.--We copy
the following from the last number of the
Springfield (Mo.) Democrat:
•• A murder has been committed in our very
midst. that makes one's blood chill to relate.
On Friday last George Young, living about
ten miles west of this, struck his little daugh
ter, eight or nine years, old, with a hoe, split
ting her skull, following the first blow with
others, beating her head, and cutting her neck.
The cries of the child brought the mother to
the horrid scene. She took up her dead child,
and started to the house. Young followed,tore
the child Iron] his wife, and cut out its entrails!
He then put a log chain round his wife's neck.
and was only prevented from killing her by
the timely arrival of some neighbors. Doubts
are entertained of Young's sanity."
FAMINE IN SWEDEN..-A letter from Stock
holm, under date of February 17, says :—.6lt is
new feared that the hoped-for exemption of Swe
den from the famine that is scourging northern
Europe will' not be realised. Around Stock
holm, indeed, and in southern Sweden, there is
at present no great scarcity of provisions ; but,
during the past two weeks, sad accounts have
reached the government of great distress in the
northern provinces. This will occasion, howev
er, no abatement of the tariff opon foreign grain.
It is probably, however, in consequence of the
high price offlour, that a few cargoes of American
breadstuff would yield good returns."
Fitts.—The Indiana Republican says: "We
regret to learn that the store•room of Mr. Da.
vid Barclay, in Purnatawny, Jefferson county,
together with its entire contents was consum
