ihe.Uup at. Good Wood took
place on a fine day, it seems, when the course'
was Ingood condition. Therefore, the Aine
rican horses did,not lose, as we fancied mjght

,?Ol great trial, of strength, with the American,

Prioress cbne td England with a vast reputa.
Uon, while Florinjmd Monafquo wero noturi

success..of. one, of theip horses with no little
confidence,napd, it most be . confessed, that,
although Prior ahd' Prioress were defeated,
they were apt disgraced. "The horse lathbred
considerably l on 'being/ stripped, • but he ran
fight np ln front to the'distahee, where Prior-,
■esi, too, lopked so formidable that a shout of
“ Wbat against the Arpcricans V’ was raised
by many voices. It was/reaerved for France,
however, tO bear off the honors of the day—

; The accident which .occurred (three horses

(act) most have pnt all tlm running - “ out of
joint.” Ou this point Wo must again quote
tbe'T,m««. .Mtsays “Itia impossible now to
-tell'what might have been the result of the

eiplnionWos that’the. American, horses—which
were ridden by native jockeys, in striped jack

more prominently, had. they been intrusted to

‘Sfcaitist thb'American h'orses, of having* been
accustomed to run on a hard course, and ap
pearing, for the first time, at Goodwood, on
the actual turf. That English, jockeys would
not have dealt fitirly with the American cattle,
ilf they rode them, iB not a correct idea. .These
meh'ride for a character as well as credit, and
.daru not play iklso. IV e recollect that’it was
under a British pilot that the yacht America
beat.the ’swiftest craft of England. ‘
In “The heart ot Midlothian” is a reguiar ras
eal called Ratolipfe, who, after having been
twice or thrive almost within the grasp : of the
turns thief-catehOr and turnkey at the
end, betraying, arresting, and imprisoning his
former accomplices. Lord BnqnouAit is a sort
of iegaIIiATOUFFE. He realized a large fortune
at tho Nisi Prius bar, as counsel lor parties in
suits, and now, in bia old age, a pensioned ex-
Cbancellor,: he eadeavora ' to. sacrifice the
lawyers, by serving the public. He, would
throW'downthe ladder by which he mounted.
He would reduce costs to a reasonable limit.
He would curtail tjie charges (and incomes) of
the attorneys, He would bring Law doWn to a
small price—hay, lie would even abolish suits
of law I
~ His hobby, at present—in which a great
many peoplo in England back him—is to con
stitute Courts (there aro
such in Prussia, we beiievo,) to which all
disputes shall be referred.- They would pre
rvent' unnecessary litigation, he thinks. He
says that much injury was suffered in society
'from litigation,'which might be prevented,
and that actions commenced, it might be in
anger or in error, were often continued
through feelings of pride or resentment. He
added, that , the; examiners of tho Court of
, Chancery had stated that the great majority of
casOa which came before them either, had been
originally, the course/of the suits had
resolved themselves into, mere questions of
costs, and had thus hocome the attorneys’
actions rather than those of the nominal plain
tiffs and defendants.
AJl'this is very well; but what arc lawyers to
do if lawsuits ore thus nipped in the bud ?-
All yery Well for the publio—but for the poor
attorneys wliat a "prospect! Starvation will
stare them in the thee, and they may qomplain,
with Othello, that their occupation isj gone!—
Lord Beouoeam evidently is amanwho endea
vor sto forgot thatho once was very glad to hold a
brief in any lease,' Courts of Reconcilement, in*
deed (' By-the*by, if this goes on, we shall see
the bar dwindle down to a, bagatelle. A new
generation of lawyers, will , arise, who will
scarcely believe that in one case, (which orlgi
jially,. might' have been arranged in half an
hour or so, had the parties met under suitable
guidance,) the late Lord Tatmo, then the
Sergeant Wilde, received a fee of £B,OOO with
his brief. This was the Small and Attwood
.case, in which the litigation spread over nearly
three years, and in which over £50,000 went
among lawyers and witnesses!
PaooßEss op the Paoimo Railroad.—The
Victoria (Texas) Advocate says: -Dr. Fretwcll, of
Port Layaoa, who passed through town last Wed*
nesd&y, informed us that the work of laying down
the railroad is progressing finely—that all the
oroeS'ilet for fifty miles are paid for and will soon
be on the ground—that the grading of fifty miles
has also , been contracted for, and nearly all paid
for.' The iron' for five miles of tbo road has been
procured, together With an engine and several
caw, all of- which are shipped and will bo soon on
the ground. The iron 1b a superior artiole; and
the ties, which aro laid two foet annrt from centre

inobte. Arrangements: have been made, as the
.Dootor informs us, for two hundred bands, who will
soon heat work. - TheSamo paper informs us that

the purpose of boring Artesian wells along the lino
of the' proposed Pacific Railroad route, passed

[Correspondence of The Press,]
Augpst 11,1857.
Grayly pawned the morning of the great fete of
Monday, and many an anxions look was oast at
clouds much bigger than a man’s hand. The day
was, lowering, and the moot point was, “ is it a fog
.or rain?” the day wore on in the'uncertainty of
gloom. Decidedly It wilt not rain now, and at one
P. M. was the high-tide of scurrying hair dressers
and distrooted ohambrieres. The battle of art was
begun—Newport was at the toilette. At three, car
riageafter oarringe appeared at the hotel doors; at
half-past, the Bret flounoes dawned on the horizon;
thicker and thiokerthey oame, till at four the rood
to Mr. Wetmore’s was a mass of flying vehicles.
Soon the.queue was made, and by half-past four
carriages in hundreds were depositing the guests on
the ooean side of Chateau sur Mer. This is tho
back entrance—too small for such a pile; but there
Is no time for taking notes or making reflections.
Tho lady in front remarks curtly, that your foot is
on her.flounce, instead of its native heather; the
lady behind begs pardon sharply, and disentangles
her guipure mantle from your protruding button.
On and on sweeps tho crowd; a hasty bow to
the host, a half curttcy to the hostess, and you are
irresistibly impelled in the line of, tnaroh through
the wide piam enclosed for- tfye occasion, and into
a cOvfercd Vay leading to the vast tent where, the
Germania; are already in. full blast, and enough
areMsembled to fIU wUhou>t,crowding the beauti
ful danOlng-toom. What a dazzling sight it la l
Women in- eyery variety of dress flitting about,
with bright eyes and gay faces. At first it seems a
mere mass of color, like a gorgeous tulip-bed; by
degrees yofl learn to break the whole into detail,
and separate the soene into parts; The Ugh! was
most favorable, for it wasolondy without shadows;
the pretty looked beautiful—the plain passed for
classic. Nature, in beneficent mood, bod given
this crowning excellence where money and will
stopped, short. The, arrangements, made with a
lavish hand,, left nothing to desiro; it was evi
dently a success. The first waits begins, and tho
crowd .slowly gives ground to tho sappers and
miners of the regiment of dancers. The privileged
holdback. The first, dance is usually a fruit of
benevolence; there is no entrain. Wo must wait
awhile, and walk farther round into the tont.
There is Mine. S l,of the corps diplomatique ,
tall and well dressed, with her party, Mrs. Sr —t
and Miss T 1* That daTk-ey ed elega w te in violet
, brocade and point lace is Mrs. K e, whoso un
rivalled dejeuner some two years baok was, pro
bably, father to the thought of this feto.
, That beautiful woman in white silk, with bonnet
trimmod with purple, is Mrs. L e. That sweet,
young-looking creature, is Mrs. W. D—-n, whose
rich dress alone stamps her as marriod. Mrs. J.
K if, in greon and white brocade, and hor love
ly sister, Miss G. 0 n, are among the 'fairest.
Miss O.’a dress of green and white tarlotan, with
her long, fair curls j recalled Undine. Mias K-—y,
in two skirts of white silk, odged with plfck, looked
oalm and serene in her quiet beauty. Miss P——e,
of South Carolina, was charming in white and bluo.
Miss C—-r-s, of New York, In currant colorod and
white muslin, with a coquettish bonnet of the same
colors, had invaded the married ladies’ provinco,
and danced bonnet and all; so did Miss H—n, of
Paris notoriety, who wore a lilao spotted thin mus
lin, with ohip bonnet trimmod to correspond, but,
decidedly, the innovation Was less appropriate than
tho simplor head-goar of tho other®. Miss. H n
wore her hair In blown-up curie, too trying to admit
of A'correot judgement as to what her beanty, un
adorned, might be; certainly with her amphithea
tre of curU she looked repose, and did not take
rank among home beautlos. Tho L&noors are
played, and straightway set upon Sot are formed,
and this decidedly fashionable* danoe warms up the
Tho Lancers has the immense advantage of being
a compromise." The ultra fash onablea meet the ultra
proper on common ground between the Polka and
,Quadrilie—tbe oldest inhabitant greets with ’ a
Smile and a sigh the figure wbieh recalls the min
uet d<l la oOur. J Tho curtsey, that touchstone of
gface, has heen too long out 6f fashion to bo well
done; but in the visiting figure the attempered bow
is jmceessfuib -Vlvb ics Lknoiers i ■ And now tho fray
D?uxtemps succeed each dthor, and of
bright eyes and light dresses becomes bewildering.
Presontly tbero is a percept bio swaying towards
one side of tho tent, and MissW., the hostess, on
the arm of Mr. Peabody, in whoso honor t|ie feto
is given, slowly passes through the crowd, and then
the side of the tent is suddenly raised and the
guests to see thebuffet. All do not reaoh it, but
the refreshment tent is thronged with the
ourious and the hungry. Every thing Is thore
in profusion—grapes in wild abnnd&noe from
Mr, W.’s own grapery, oysters end pate 3,
salmon a la tartare, and countless broods of
chickens in mayonna so, champagne at discretion—
every thing save seats 'and spaoe was to be found
at that buffet. People ought to have gone and
dotted themselves about tho lawn, but noone led the
flock, and so, with that insane perseverance which
characterizes a well-dressed mob, they kept close
to the original fountain of good, and crowded one
another aud the servantsto a jam. This, however,
is,undoubtedly part of the enjoyment of a great
festival, and pleasure is too subtle an element to
of analysis. As the space in the dancing
tent widened, other attractive faoos appeared.
Misß C n, of Washington, in a dress of white
moire; Miss J 1, of Philadelphia, stylish and
intellectual looking; Miss H n, of Baltimore,

The Revenue op India.— ln 1853-4 the In
dian revenue was £26,610,000, being£2,o44,ooo
less than the expenditure; in 1854-5 the reve
nue was £27,312, being £1,707,000 short of
the expenditure; in 1856-6 the revenue was
£28,891,000, being £972,000 less than tho ex
penditure ; and the estimate for 1850-7 is that
tho income will be found to amount to £29,-
344,000, and tho expeitsoto£Bl,B2o,ooo, show
ing an anticipated deficiency of £1,981,000.
The principal source of income—the land re
venue-had increased from £14,848,000 in
1853-4, to £16,682,000 in 1856-7. The cus
toms had increased in the same period from
£1,283,000 to £2,029,000, while the revenue
from salt had somewhat decreased, and that
lVpm opium remained at nearly th& same
amount. Under the head of charges we find,

the revonno, including charges of collection
and cost of Balt and opium, had increased from
£0,805,000 in 1863, to £7,380,000 in 1857;

After a lull of hostilities, but a continuation
of watchfulness on tho part of tho British Ad
miral, operations of a vigorous character were
recommenced in the waters of Canton. On
the 27th of May thirteen Chinese junks were
captured by the British forces; on the follow
ing day twenty-seven were captured; and on
the Bth of June no less than one hundred and
twenty-seven war-junks, mounting 900 guns,
were taken and destroyed. The Chinese fought
with more skill than they usually display against
Europeans, and with a bravery, or ferocity,
which they never before exhibited. The British
Joss on the last occasion was three officers
'and eight men killed, and three officers and
fifty-three men wounded. The loss on the
side of the Chinese is not mentioned. By the
result of these operations Canton lies wholly
at the mercy of the British Admiral, who may
thus continue to be the master of tho situation,
and perchance bring Commissioner Ych to
reason, without any necessity for the employ
ment of British troops, who are more wanted
aud better employed in India. The dispute
remains as before, a purely local one, in which
the Emperor of China is not involved, and from
which ho may yet escape participation by dis
avowing tho acts of his commissioner.

After addressing the audience on the necessity of
adopting some important measure for the salvation
of the Island, Gen. Concha retired from the room,
so that his presence might not be an obstaole to
the voluntary subscription that each one was
expected to make. Tne result of tho meeting
was extremely satisfactory, and had he called
for S2OjOOO,OOG, it would havo boon forthcom
ing. His Excellency was as much frightened at
tho oriticftl situation of the island as any ono elso.
—probably more so, as he is aooused of having con
tributed largely to the rapid development of this
new kind oi gambling in the island. The best
banks in the city had to stop payments for throo

American gold into our circulation at par for tho

The Case of Rev* T. J. Simpson,

preferred against him, and of which ho whs hc

“For the Inst few weeks my name has been
trumpeted through the country in connection with
the charge of seduction. For a time tho eager
multitude caught tho dying rumor without stop

it wns founded. Tho reaction has now com
menced, howover, and tho Church and the
world demund the author of such an infamous
charge. Is he to bo found ? I challenge the world

ridiculous. Who, then, Is tho author? Puma cla

who, in this instance, has certainly overtaxed her

in the caso, to know if there was ground on which
to predicate such a charge; and it has unanimous

Thß pepple of Michigan seem to be greatly
exercised concerning a recent decision of the Su

habit of posting notices of sates of land for taxes in
obscure places, where the owners were not likely
to observe them, a few days previous to their sale
The case in question was Niles v. Walker, and the
decision was that the connty treasurer must give a
reasonable notice of the place of sale; that six days
is not sufficient notice; and that the notice of the
place must be coextensive with the time of sale. It
is said this decision will render null and void a ve

Strange Statements—Dr. Uhl sad Dr Fisk.
[Prom the New York Daily Times.]
We are told concerning Dr. Uhl and his connec
tion with Mrs. Cunningham—-and toe proof is pro
mised as forthcoming *with the trial—that when
the production of a Vegas heir was first propose!
to him, he refused peremptorily to be a partner to
any such crime. Jin. Cunningham said: •• Well,
you can do as you please ; if yon won’t, others can
be found who will assist me; and if you expose me,
os you threaten, it will be of ho T\se, and 1 wilf fol
low you up to the end of your days.” .Nothing of
this sort appeared in Dr. Uhl's affidavit, it is true,
though Justice Davison was -informed that there
were.important statements'corroborative apd ex
planatory of what was taken, that had been com
municated to his counsel.
The same authority says that Mra. Cunningham
proposed to Dr. Uni that he should make affidavit
to the effect that, in the examination of the person
of Miss Helen, in order to authenticate her state
ments before Coroner Connery, Dr. Woodward had
token unwarrantable liberties with her. If Dr.
Uhl would make such an affidavit. Mrs. Cunning
ham promised to bring a suit against Dr. Wool
ward, laying toe damages at $20,000, one-half of
which 6he would give to Dr. Uhl.
Dr. Uhl formerly lived in Bond street, near the
world-renowned No. 31.' This nearness on the
street probably first suggested to the smart widow
his employment as her physical counsellor.
Dr. Fisk, who has been attending‘Mrs. Cun
ningham for gastritis ever since the sham accouch
ment—a gastritis caused, it is now said, by repeated
doses of tartar-emetic—knew nothing of Mrs. Cun
ningham until he was summoned one day- last
week, to attend her at toe suggestion of Mr. Staf
ford, whose family physicianhe Is. He at once
proposed personal examination to her, but she
sturdily refused it, though the Doctor urged it as
essential for a proper diagnosis and safe treatment.
It is a curious fact, that while Dr. Uhl carried in
his breast the secret of the bogus baby. Judge
Dean, the bogus mother's counsel, was a lodger In
the same bouse, and the two were in daily inter
course with each other, showing that tht Doctor
can keep a secret when he chooses.

The Baby at the Museum.
Mrs. Elisabeth Anderson and the u Dakhng
J3oby” of Mrs. Cunningham on Exhibition.
Mrs. Elisabeth Anderson and her' baby, who ■
have figured so extensively for the past two weeks
in connection with the Bond street farce, have been
offered a star engagement at the Museum, and
made their debut yesterday, in accordance with
the following announcement:
Babxum’B Awebicax Hvsxtnr.—*«The bogus
Bnrdell baby” is now to be seen at the Museum—
having just arrived from Bellevue Hospital, and,
with its real mother, Mrs. Anderson, been placed
at this establishment to gratify, for a few'days
only, the public cariosity. This is the genuine
borrowed baby whioh was the valuable instrument,
through District-Attorney A. Oakey Hall,"Esq.'
and Dr. Uhl, of exposing the stupendous Bond
street fraud, and which was pronounced by Mrs.
Cunningham to have the “ exact nose and chin” of
the late Dr. Burdeil. The’ embroidered baby’s
dress provided by Mrs. Cunningham is kino at toe
Mnseum, together with a correct photographic
likeness by Meade Brothers, of Mw. (humiaghom,

charge for admission to the Museum notwUhftand
ingthis additional attraction. • - r
The startling poster, however, failed to ereate
any very extraordinary excitement; and. - duriag
the day, the attendance at the Museum was not
unusually large. A number of idle people visited
the notorieties, as a matter of coarse, bat they
created ho such furore as the management had
been led to anticipate.
Mrs. Anderson is a woman about 35 years of
age, but looks older, and has evidently experienced
much suffering and sorrow. She had au the ner
vousness and agitation consequent upon a first ap
pearance “in public on the stage,” but went
through her trying role quite as successfully as
most debutantes. She still looked weak and sickly
from her recent confinement; and if she manages
to live through the excitement, the questioning
and exposure to whieh she is subjected, it will
prove her to be a woman of remarkable constitu
tion. It would be a trying ordeal, for a perfectly
healthy woman, to ait from 10 A. M- to 10 P. H.,
and be inspected and questioned continually by
eveqr ignorant and canons visiter; bat it seem 3
positively cruel to subject this poor woman to this
treatment. She ha 3 no relatives to counsel her,
and it seems like taking advantage of her poverty
and inexperience.
The baby was of coarse the centre of attraction.
It was inspected and criticised, tonohed and fon
dled, and not a few of the female visiters kissed
r the “ little darling,” a liberty toe youngster al
ways resented by bawling vigorously whenever it
was dooe, tbcugh nSually its temper whs exceed
of lto vftalityVw tost

other respects Jnstitia Anderson (a name joggested
by Warden Daly, of Bellevue Hospital,' and ac
quiesced In by toe mother) is'Uke other female
babies, and Us existence vibrates betweazf suetion
and somnolence. -
In addition to the mother and ehild > a portion of
Mrs. Cunningham and the clothes she provided for
the heir to the Burdeil estate were also .on exhibi
tion. The photograph is not a good one,-and must
be the original of the viUfinous likenesses'of Mrs.
Cunningham that* fill the-shop windows/and are
published in the flesh newspapers. -Thq clothes
consists of a baby’s long frock, embroidered, and
bib, and several mysterious flannel garments, tho
use of which is known only to those who are pasted
in toe secrets of babyhood.
Mrs. Anderson was of course compelled to sub
mit to a cross-examination from every person who
paid twenty-five cents to inspect the family group.
To one she would have to recount the history of toe
child, to another her own history; a third would
inquiry after her husband, and the fourth would
be satisfied with nothing' less than' tho whole story,
from beginning to end.
During the morning one of the visiters, who wa
evidently a “down easier,” after compelling the
poor woman to tell the story over.fbr a hundredth
time, said:
** Well, how much did you get forgiving up your
‘‘l'did not any money,” replied the
mother; I did it because Mr. Hall wanted it, and
because 1 was told it would be the means o? dis
covering a bad woman.”
The visiter withdrew, slightly disgusted that h
could not find one who had made anything by th
trick. Another questioner, a joungman with long
hair and weak eyes, timidly inquired if she might
not be mistaken in the child—-might not some other
woman’s baby be returned to her instead of her
own; but he was immediately crashed by the in
dignant mother informing him, that “of course a
mother oan always tell her own child from another
woman’s ”
During the afternoon a number of women visited
the Museum to see the baby. The young ladies, of
course, were in extacies, and pronounced it a “little
dear;” while the more mature females were dis
posed to be patronizing, and thought it very good
of ita kind, but that it was' not a very good kind.
Mrs. Anderson and her child are wafted on by a
nurse, who exhibits the child when the laother is
compelled to retire to escape the questioning of the

The Case of the McKeesport Murderers.
The Pittsburgh Chronicle states that Colonel Row
ley, deputy clerk of the Court of Quarter Seisions,
has just completed a record of the case of the Com
monwealth vs. Henry Fife. Monroe Stewart, and
Charlotte Jones, recently convicted of murder in
our criminal court, and now lying under sentence
of death in the county jail. The record is very
voluminous, covering some sixty closely written
pages, and embracing the various' exceptions taken
to the ruling of the Court, do., during the trial.
The record was made out at the. desire of the de
fendant’s counsel, who purpose, if a writ of error
be allowed them, to take the case before the Su
premo Court. The writ must bo procured within
thirty days from the day the prisoners received
their sentence, otherwise tho matter cannot ho
taken before the Supreme Court at all, and the law.
unless the Governor interferes, will have to take its
course. Counsel for the defence, in view of thi3
fact, havo made application to Judge Lowrie. ask
ing that a writ of error in the ease may issue. His
honor has signified his willingness to examine the
record with as little delay as possible, so that an
early decision in the matterinaybe expected. Tho
Supreme Court meets in Snnbury on the first Mon
day of October, and, should Judge Lowrie grant a
writ of error in the case, it will probably be argued
there. It is possible, however, that it might be
postponed till the meeting of the court here on tha
second Monday of October, as more convenient to
the counsel engaged in theense. When argued tbe
proceedings will be regarded with intense interest,
not only by the wretched convicts themselves, but
by all classes of the community.
