would it surprise us, considering the vast
traffic of the stages, if the competition we

$40,000 or $50,000: Is not that worth look
ing after In these hard times
A London merchant, named lona Mona,-
sos,lately died, worth $20,000,000. He had
'been in Parliament, ho was liberal in his ex
penditures, he paid his:debts, and therefore,
the English journals, which are severe upon
poor people, have raised Mr. Meatuses to the
seventh heaven of fulsome eulogy. He made
his money, however, in no very laudable man
ner. Any trader who was ce In a tight place"
had only to give Mr. Mona tees a frapply of goods
in marketable condition, at half the cost price,
and that liberal gentleman would immediately
give him a check. Now and then, to he sure,
he came within a hair's breadth of being pro
scented as a cc receiver," but always drove
just outside the operation of the law. In Lon
don, where' he was known, such a character
was a fair mark for sarcasm, and we find his his
tory and mode of trading very fully shadowed
out in the last Umber of Dickens's Household
Words, where, under the title of "Twenty Shil
!lnge in the Pound," every one who runs may
find, in the adventures of Petty, Larceny, &
Co., the haberdasiiers, a palpable adumbration
of Mr. JAxSs Monnison's mode of making
money. '
We notice the man, puffed and worthless as
he really was, on account of an anecdote re
lating to him, communicated by a correspond
ent of the Illustrated London Times, as follows:
"It is
. aaid that during the last two years of
his life he - was the victim of a singular mental
hallucination, imagining tbat'he was'in the ut-
Most poverty, and that but by daily labor could
he get daily bread. His Mends accordingly
used to a spade in his hands, and sent
him to work fora short time in the garden,
paying hint weekly wages of a few shillings,
and in this .way alone would he be imieted."
This may be true, but is not very singular.
Thrift very fretmently - , has such a painful ter
minus as this.. Accumulation sometimes ope
rates upon the mind in the manner here do
scribed, and inflicts the torture of constantly
magining that poverty was at hand. This is
one of the pains and penalties of Riches.
Mr. Mealasole,' haunted , by the idea of utter
poverty while he had $20,000,000 of property,
is fairly entitled to 'the title of millionaire.
But he was only in moderate circumstances
compared with a, fortunate Englishman,
namedldeurni,,whe has for forty years been
straggling with, poverty, and now, by a legal
decision; hait'siteCeeded to the JENNINGS pro
perty, consisting of $400,000,000 of accumu
lation, and estates worth' $2,000,000 per an
num.: It is difficult to imagine how a man can
live up to such an income. It is enough to
Unsettle the reason. "

Fable by boats,
The aged King of Deihl, a feeble, tool in
the hands of the late occupants of :Delhi, was
aActptivo,tn',tbe'hands; of his English con
aCthietatest. afivices. The report
that two sons.,,i, , had been shot" appears
correef—with the addition that they had fallen
in battle, and not, as the words might seem to
imply, by the vengeance of the British. This
Sovereign, who is between eighty and ninety
years old, could scarcely have been an active
promoter - of the late revolt. MAHOMST SUIIA
JOODESH Sam GAZES succeeded his father, as
King of Delhi, in 1837, and has been
*ilitained,' by The East India Cbmpauy, as 'a
King in name only:: for the last twenty
years. A pensioned descendant of the last
raee` of ; Ma,homedan Kings, of Delhi,
his Court presented all the worst evils of
Eastern depravity and luxury. In his own
Palace, at least, be was allowed to retain all
power of life and death, and was cruel as well
as luinrious. The stipend annually granted
to (cilia Majesty" was twelve and a-half
lakhs of rupees, equal to $025,000. The East
India Company committed a great mistake in
allowing such ample means, after they had
virtually annihilated the regal authority. It
would not surprise us to find them providing
for the gradual diminution and final extinction
of all-the large allowances which they have
hitherto made to the deposed Native Princes.
Abused as this liberality clearly has been,
there are numerous causes why it should be
contracted in future. The King of Delhi will
probably spend the brief remainder of his life
in prison.
some error in the Report of the Return of the
Saratoga—Administration resolved to Observe
the Neutrality Laws Cabinet Council to
day, ko•
Waenteavon, Nov. 24, 1.852 —There must be
some mistake In the telegram from New York, pub•
fished in this morning's papers, that the Saratoga
had arrived at that port, for no orders, I learn,
have been issued from the Navy Deportment re
calling her to the United States from the coast of
Central Amerioa, •
111 ' 4 boa been hoped-all along that this ship would
intercept WALKER before he gained a footing in
Nicaragua. Even if her officers had failed in this
object, nevertheless, If for no other purpose than
to evince to the world a desire on our part to
maintain our neutrality laws, the Saratoga, and
the other United States ships-of-war of the same
squadron, should remain in these waters, to act
promptly as circumstances shall demand.
If this Administration have taken a firm posit
don on any question, they have on that of an ob
servance of our neutrality laws. I have it, from
high authority, that they do not design " minc
ing'! matters, but that they will, with a steady
purpose, compel the federal officers, in every na
tion of the country, at the risk of removal, to pre.
vont the escape from our limits of adventurers
against the peace of neighboring States, and In
opposition to treaty stipulations.
In view of the presence and reception of Mr.
Otrsamr, the Cabinet Connell of to-day will, it is
said, review and mark out a definitive policy in
Central American affairs". This gentleman has
communicated to the Secretary of State the design
aisle mission, and from what I oan gather of the
conversation that transpired, I do not believe that
the London Post was far wrong in its statement,
lately reproduced in the Northern papers.

Her countenance is rather grim, and her voice is

that class of females which the novelists describe
as "not perfectly beautiful, but highly interesting."
Captain Smith, the cruel deceiver of this art
less maiden, is a short, chunky individual, having
(in maritime language,! " a good breadth of

markable for a preternatural squint, and a pair
of stupendous black bushy whiskers, the least agi

dealer in mineral fuel all his lifetime, and his
heart seems to be as black and as inflammable as

Miss Sally Brown did better; ehe came, in a bodily

injuries she had sustained in her person and repu

"up the river," and to come down with him, in his

voyage was completed, ho would embark with her
on the voyage matrimonial. With a view to this
felicitous arrangement, Sally had irradiated the

with all the confiding tenderness of horse; she had
behaved as affectionately to the Captain, during

been pronounced.
But when the boat arrived, the ungrateful Capt.

precipitated into the icy waters of the Schuylkill,
which extinguished the last spark of love in each

The Allegheny County Murder--Fife r Steivitrt.
and Charlotte Jones to be Hung.
Tbo Supromo Court, 3n cession at Pittsburgh,
affirmed the judgment of the court below in the
nese of Fife, Stewart, and Charlotte Jones, non
vioted of the murder of Henry Wilson and Eliza
beth MoMasters, at McKeesport. Tho Chronic*
When intelligence of the action of the court
reached the prisoners, the effect on each was most
extraordinary and unlookod for. Stewart, who
had always displayed the most astonishing self
possession and calmness. appeared overwhelmed by
the news, and betrayed a degree of emotion that
ho novor boforo munititsted. Ms whole hope cen
tred on the Supreme Court. Ito believed firmly
that there would be a reversal of the judgment of
the court below in his ease, and when lie found
the hope which had buoyed him up soddenly de
stroyed, his self-possession deserted hint, and he
gnvo himself up to a degree of anguish that eur
prised while it pained his follow prisoners. lie
still proclaims his innocence, and - maintains that,
though a thousand courts held otherwise, he is
guiltless of the blood of the Wilson family.
Fife, too, was taken aback not a little when the
decision was made known. Ito soon recovered his
equanimity, however, and, beyond declaring his
innocence, ho spoke but little on the subject. Ito
says they may hang ;him when they please, but
that Stewart Is an innocent man, and that If he be
executed, it will be a judicial murder.
Charlotte Jones received the news with extraor
dinary composure. To our mind, she is a callous
wretch—insensible to all the fine feelings of the
human heart, and indifferent whether or not she
ends her days on a gibbet.
"Madame, , said' old Roger to his boarding
housekeeper, "in primitive countries beef is
often the legal tender; but madam," said lie,
emphatically, thrusting his fork Into the steak,
"al the law of Christendom could not make
this beef tender." •

Item the Washington Star, November, 21.1
' The latelournament at Piscataway was a splen
did affair, and, was attended by some 4,000 people,
the elite of Prince George's, Bt. Mary's, Charles, ,
Calvert, Anne Arundel, and Montgomery coun
ties,and a very large attendance from this city.
The Queen of Love end Beauty wee Mies Sienna

-the beautiful crown manufactured by Baulked, of

Some twenty-flee knights appeared as oo.uteet
data, superbly mounted.
.. At 10 A. Al. the knights asseMbled in front of
Hoskins's hotel, . beaded by Col. Sothoron, of St.
Mary's, as marshal, and Eeputa ' e band; from
whence they moved up to the ground of trial,
where they were addressed, appropriately, by.B.
W. Belt, Esq.:, of Marlboro'.
The Chief Marshal then took the ground, and
' the heralds having been stationed, the riding com
menced with spirit at 11 A. M.
The first tilt resulted in a tie between Wm. P.
Bryan, of Prince George's county, "The Forbid
den gnight;" and A. G. Gwin, of the same court
ty, "Knight of the Plains."
The second trial resulted in the "Forbidden
Knight" taking the ring three times and the
"Knight of the Plains" twice. Accordingly, Mr.
Bryan was declared the victor to crown the queen,
and Mr. Gwin, the first maid of honor.
Then came the contest to decide who should
crown the other four maids of honor, and the
victors wore then announced in the order sub
A. Kirk, of St. Mary's, "Knight of Ivanhoe;"
E. ,Pliny Bryan, of Fringe George's, "Knight of
Piscataway ;" Dr. J. R. White, of Priem) George's,
"Knight of the Potomao ," J. Gardiner, of Prtnoe

Just as the riding closed, a furious storm seat,
tered the audience and participants, somewhat
suddenly, but all assembled in, good condition at
8 r. or., 10 the large ball-room of the village,
where the crowning took plate.
A beautiful address was delivered by James
Campton, Esq.. after which Col. Sothoron and Mr.
Bell advanced with the beautiful crown, and placed
it upon the brow of Miss Mattingly, the Glueen
of Love and Beauty.
Slim Ceeelis. Mudd, of Charles county, was
Crowned first maid of honor; Mrs.' Amy Bowfin, of
Princess George's, 2d; Mrs. Martha Sothoron, of
St. MarY'sl county, lid; Mrs. E. Gardiner, of
Charles county, 4th ; Mrs. Ellen R. Boarman, of
Charles county, sth.
After this ceremony followed the ball, and a su
perb supper, and the enjoyment was kept np to
the fullest extent until the company separated,at
three o'clock in the morning.
-4bout alx hundred men assembled upon, Tomp
kins square, at eleven o'clock this forenoon. The
weather was cold,. and -a few of them had over
emits. • 'Richard . Moore .made a speech, In which
ho &dmented the city °Mobile and central park
Ootrimissioriers In unmeasured terms. Be said All
the evils, which, the laboring men endure have
boon brought upon them by the d --- d corruption
and policy of the city officials.' It *as •in the
power of the workingmen to defeat every mother's
son of them, and he hoped they would do it.
The alderman of the Twentieth ward was trying
to got a man In as foreman of a gang of men in the
Central Park who already had the Job of lighting
gas-lamps. This was because the man was a poli
tician, and this is the class of men which the city
officials are trying to got work for, while the poor

must take the 0011110qIIIMOW. This was loudly ap
plauded. The meeting then formed in procession
and marched to the City Hall, where otherspeeehes
were made. It was announced that thence they
would march to the Whim of the Central Park
Commissioners, and demand an immediate answer
whether or not they were to have work.
The coroner's inquest showed that the facts
were substantially as we copied thorn from the
New York papers, conoerning the murder of Mrs.
Walters and Mr. Sturdevant, at Port Jefferson,
L. 1., by the husband of the lady and the motile
of the murderer. The raises of the trouble, how
ever, was not avarice. It was originally a'griev
ance between the husband and wife of a family
sort, and of nearly two years' standing. Walters,
who was some 60 years old, was everywhere known
as an inoffensive, temperate, "clever" man, much
disposed to tell his neighbors of his most secret
troubles. Ills grief unnerved him, and at last
made him desperate. Something like a year ago
he ordered home a shroud—ovidently hoping to
frighten his wife into a ohnnge'of treattnentof him.
She was fond of her children, and no less of her
son-in-law, who took up the quarrel against him,
and had just arranged with a lawyer for a
written settlement of their affairs. Walters Is
said to have possessed a good deal of property
about Greonpoint.

Tenth anniversary of the Churchmen's Mis
sionary Association for Stamen.—The tenth an
niversary of the Churchmen's Missionary Associa
tion for Seamen was held at half-put 7 o'olook last
evening, in St Andrew's Church,. Eighth street;
above Spruce . The attendance was Large and re
spentable. After Impressive religions exercises,
which were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Stevens,
pastor, and singing by an excellent choir, the
tenth annual report of the Missionary of. the new
Church for Seamen was read, and listened to with
marked attention, It was a well- written docu
ment, and set forth the condition of affairs in the
mission in the moat gr atifying light. The present
missionary bee ,c oup led his position for only nine
months, and no material change in the affairs of
his charge have coma ender his notice.
The new church Is at Catharine and Swamies'
streets, and is now completed. It is en elegant,
substan Rai; and commodious building, and we pre
dict much practical benefit from the services
within Its ;walla, in spreading the glad tidings of
the Gospel Moog the Bailors who visit this port.
A debt of six hundred dollars, however, still re
mains upon the edifice.
The religions wants of the sailer were graphi
cally portrayed in the report, and an earnest ap
peal for prompt aid from the friends of morality
made in the most eloquent terms. The report eon
eluded with some interesting statistics relative to
the number of communicants, and the number of
Bible'', prayer-books, do., which have been distri
buted during the past year, and since the com
mencement of the mission.
At the conclusion of the reeding of the report
an eloquent 'sermon was preached by the Right
Rev. T. M. Clark, Bishop of Rhode Island, after
whioh a contribution was taken up, and the meet
ing adjourned.
Destructive .Fire.—At an early hour yester
day morning, a frame stable belonging to Mr. M.
Devlin, back of the 4ertnantown road, below Mas
ter street, Seventeenth ward, was set on fire. The
flames spread through the combustible material in
the stable withgreat rapidity, and soon comma
ideated to the distillery of Mr. Devlin. There
was a small quantity of liquor in this building and
the fire burned furiously among it, extending to a
block of four small frame dwellings whioh were
meetly destroyed. Those structures were occupied
by poor amities 'who were turned Into therstreet
during a stern, and in their night clothes. .Most
of their effects were got out in a damaged condi
tion. The dwellings destroyed belonged to Dr.
Jenny and Mr. James Donohue. They were va
copied by the follewing.named persona : Peter
Wooly, James McLaughlin, James Dornab,
Mahoney, John Slater, and Mrs. Kelley.
The loss of these persons, although not heavy in
the ag : re: ate, fails heavily upon them.
"'" • s -stover _the loss upon them.
The horses in Mr. Deritn's stable were got safely
out, but a new carriage in the building was de.
etroyed. lied tho roofs of the surrounding pro
potty been dry, with the wind as high as it was,
the conflagration would have been more disastrous.
As it was, the people in the neighborhood were
greatly alarmed, and at the distance of a square
from the burning property they had their goods
packed for removal.

Sixth Ward Relief Association have opaavd —.-

.4 New Idea in Mechanist:J.—There has been
placed within the dome of the new Pennsylvania
Bank building, a shade or umbrella, to ward off
the sun's rays. It is also intended to intercept
and radium the column of cold air, whioh would
otherwise descend from the dome. It expands to
an oval form, being twenty-ono feet by eighteen,
and is worked by a crank at the surface in the
banking room. The same crank is 1160 used to

may be that the Bank of England will be driven

slow to indulge in great frights, bet in this ease
they appear to have departed from their phleg

The Western papers are filled with reports upon
the hog crop in different "length's; the result we
gather from them generally, being that the supply
is largely in excess of the demand, owing to the
depression in all business, and that those wbo made
owl; ;;;,utraats are likely to lose heavily.
The Cincinnati Commercial of the 231 says:
" There is an incresing demand for money, which
is met to a moderate extent by outside capitalists,
the bankinthouses doing very little. Sixty-day
bills on New York are taken at 1 per sent. per
month oil; and on New Orleans 21 per cent. off.
(not 2 per cent. as was erroneously printed in our
WO in cam they are strictly first clam. Sight
cheeks on New York are firmer, at 2 premium, and
ore bought with more eagerness at lan premium.
No cheek's in Philadelphia or Baltimore, very
little demand for the latter."
We give the following figures from the New
York bank statement. Including the clearing house
quotations of the week, which are on the increase,
and the Sub•Trensury statement of Saturday after
noon, the following is the general comparison with
the previous statement, and also with the showing
of the banks and Sub-Treasury one year ago:

In Sub-Treasury.. 12,113,70 4,677,660 5,164,883
The largo specie figure will attract attention.
The sum total is $23,187,980, by far the heaviest
amount known to the history of the New York
banks. Nearly the whole of the heavy increase
of the week in the deposit column appears to have
been gained in actual coin. The want of nativity
in the employment of money rather than the dis
position to lend is seen in the movement of the
loan column, which, for three weeks, has stood at
nearly the mane figure, while the actual deposit's
In bank have gone up from $5 8 , 4 2007 to $84,91 7,-
906. The total amount of specie now in the city
compares with this time last year as follows:
Nov. 22,1858.
In Bank $12,971,868
In Sub-Treasury— 12,113,798
The probability is the banks hold, to-day, nearly
or quite twenty-four milLions---theavarage being a
rising one. The Atlantic delivered, to-day, 11.15,-
000 from England. The Arabia, sailing on Wed
nesday, will probably carry back about a million
of dollars, if remitters are able to command the
money. On the othor hand, the California packet
of the sth of No vember will be due on Friday or
Saturda y next.
The Pittsburgh papers announee the suipension
of Geo. B. Arnold & Co., bankers. Owing to the
pressure of the times, they have deemed it prudent
to make an assignment. It is thought they will
be eventually able to meet all their liabilities.
The total value of the exports from the port of
Baltimore last week, was $307,235.
