Fo REIGN MISSIONS.- The names of
the gentlemen who have been confirmed
by the Senate for the prominent foreign
missions, with the salaries attached, are
as follows :
England, Charles F. Adams $17,600
France, William L. Dayton 17,500
Prussia, N. P. Judd 12,000
• Austria, Anson Burlingame • 12,000
Sardinia, George P. Marsha 7,600
Turkey, James Watson Webb 7,500
Sweeden, Jacob S, Haldeman 7,500
Denmark, Bradford B. Wood 7,600
Belgium, Henry S. Sanford 7,600
Spain, Cassius M. Clay 12,000
Rome, Rafus King 7,600
Mexico, Thomas Corwin . 12,000
All impartial and candid men must
give the President credit for having, as a
general thing, made most excellent selec
tions for the foroign missions. The ap•
pointment of Mr. Dayton is a very good
one, as he is one of the ablest men of the
Republican party, and one of the leading
statesmen of the country. ' General Webb
has declined the mission to Turkey; but
like. Messrs. Corwin and Clay, it is pos
sible he may yet change his mind.
Among the principal consuls that have
been appointed are the following:
"London, Freeman H. Moore $7,500
Liverpool. D. C. Littlejohn 7,600
Havre, J. 0. Putman, 6,000
Alexandria, in Egypt, W. S: Thayer.. 8,000
British North America Provinces,
Joshua R. Giddings 4,000
Besides these, a part of the small fry
counsulships have been filled.
GOVERNOR OF NEVADA TERYITORY.-
The President has appointed Gen. James
W. Nye, of New York city, Governor of
Nevada Territory, with a salary of $2,-
600. The territory of Nevada was form
ed from portions of Utah, New Mexico,
and that part of Washington Territory
which formerly belonged to Oregon. It
takes in nearly half of the former terri
tory of Utah, and is divided from it by
the 114th meridian. It comprises also a
triangular portion of New Mexico, be
tween Virginia, river and the eastern
boundary of California. The area of the
territory over which Mr. Nye has been
appointed is 175,000 tquare miles, just
twice as large as the island of Great Bri
tain, and greater in extent than all New
England, New York and Pennsylvania.
Its population in May last was about nine
thousand, so that the chances of its soon
having population enough to become a
State are very slim, even with the assis
tance of the last energies of the Gover
CUTTING 0.11" THEIR FODDER.-dt is
stated that the secretaries of the various
departments at Washington have deter
mined to equalize the number of office
holders in the departments from the dif
ferent States, as some have a much larger
number in proportion, than others. Vir
ginia has one hundred and seventy clerks
in the departments, while in reality her
proportion is but seventy-five; conse
quently, it is necessary for the public
good to razee the federal fodder stack of
the F. F. V's. This is hard on the scions
of chivalry, who will find it much more
difficult to grub a living off worn-out
plantations, and as pettifoggers at dilapi
dated county seats, than it was drinking
rum at the public bar-rooms in Washing
ton, for which Uncle Sam paid them fat
salaries. Another howl from Mason may
be looked for
SAm HausTox.—The hero of San Ja
cinto once more occupies a prominent po
sition in national affairs. Late intelli
gence from Texas gives assurance that
the old hero will battle against secession
and treachery to the last. Old Sam's
platform has always been the "Constitu
tion and the Union," and we are assured
that he still sticks to his text. He re
gards himself as legitimately the Gover
nor of Texas, and does not intend to yield
his authority to the Convention who pas
sed the secession ordinance. He will
rally around him the Union men of the
State, and make a brisk fight if the seces
sionists attempt to supersede him by force.
This stand whioh he has taken in favor
of the Union is so unexpected that it
changes materially the secession pro
gramme, and the solution of the great
question of the day may yet, be removed
from Washington to Texas.
AW.11114 GARDNIS, the reformed bruiser
has become insane. His exertions in
sustaining the reading and coffee room in
New York have been very great, and
have at last ended in mental derange
ment. One of the New York sporting
papers admits that Mr. Gardner's reform
MS genuine, and that his establishment
has been the means,of reforming some of
thie_ worst characters ever known in the
city of vice and crime.
THE Syracuse Journal states, that,
among the applications for office, made to
Mr. Sedgwick, the member of Congress
from that district, was one from a clergy
man asking his influence to obtain a sub
ordinate clerkship in the New York Cus
tom House for his son, a youth he 'shad
never bad occasion to punish, and never
knew of his being guilty of a falsehood;"
to which application Mr. Sedgwick wrote
the following capital reply:
"SYRACUSE, March, 1861
"Ray. Ma. P MY DEAR SIR : If you
have got a son who won't lie nor steal, don't,
for God's sake, put him in the New York Cus
tom House. He would soon lose those quali
ties there, and get other habits not half so vir
tuous. Still, if you are inclined to put tempt
ation in his way, instead of being careful and
prayerful that it may be removed from him, I
will give him a letter; provided any friend of
mine is appointed Collector. Very reepectful

THE Raleigh (N. C.) Standard is one
one of the newspapers in the slave States
which dares to speak truth in the teeth of
secession. We quote from a recent " is-
It is criminal to say there is "no hope for
the Union." If five hundred of the public
men of the two sections could be transported,
or confined in dungeons for six months, the
Union would be restored and reconstructed
during that period, and it would be more glo
rious and prosperous than the one now threat
ened with destruction. The, disunionist per se
is a mad man or a bad man. He who prefers
disunion to union, and who labors to provoke
and aggravate the two sections against each
other, is an enemy to his race. He who is for
discord instead of concord, for war instead of
peace, for disunion for disunion's sake, is guilty
of a crime more stupendous than any which
has been committed since Cain slew his brother.
SECESSION GOOD FOR SOMETHING.-
The following item from the Baltimore
American makes it evident that the war
like demonstrations of the Palmetto State
are doing some good to States further
North, by ridding them of some of their
"Over one hundred recruits for the regular
army of the Confederate States left here in the
Norfolk boat yesterday, en route for Charleston,
South Carolina. Some few of the party are
young men of respectable connections, who
have been bitten by a desire for military glory,
but the majority of the detachment is made up
of the worst class of our population. If the
Confederacy can put them to any serviceable
purpose, it will achieve what Society has failed
to accomplish here."
Mr. CORWIN'S mission to Mexico will
do much to strengthen and confirm the
liberal government now apparently estab
lished in that lately distracted country.
Freedom of religion and of political opin
ion, combined with security of person and
property, will draw to it thousands of en
terprising men from this and other coun
tries, and thus inaugurate an era of pros
perity, and render nugatory all attempts
at filibustering on the part of our ambi
tious friends of the Gulf States.
MONEY WON BY A DEAD MAN.-At
Koethen, Saxony, recently, a gentleman
engaged in play at a faro table, and died
in his seat- His death was not discover
ed until his . money, by being left on the
table all the while, had won a heavy
sum. A law suit resulted between the
banker and the dead player's heirs, which
was decided in favor of the latter.

The Robbers Excavate 70 feet to reach the Bank
Vaults—They are three weeks undermining the
An attempt by bunglers . to undermine the
New York Exchange Bank, on the hortheast
corner of Greenwich and Dey streets, was dis
covered this (Monday) morning.
The particulars of the affair, as near as can
be ascertained, are as follows: For some time
past, a Mr. John Alcock occupied a cellar, No.
189, Greenwich street, for the manufacture of
About a month since, a Mr. Thomas Burke
came along, and bought out Alcock, paying
him very liberally for his place. The plan for
robbing the bank must have been formed pre
vious to the purchase of the place, for from . ap
pearauces, the work done by the burglars could
not have been accomplished much short of a
month. They dug a sort of tunnel, sufficient
ly large for a man to pass through, from the
cellar occupied by Burke, a distance of about
seventy feet, and through almost solid mason
ry, until they reached the bank, coming up al
most directly under the safe, which contained
about $60,000 of available money. They used
a jack, of power sufficient to raise upwards of
forty tons, to break through the thick flagging
upon which the safe stood.
"G. B. SEDGWICK."
All they succeeded in carrying off was $2OO
' in gold and MO in western and southern mo
ney, belonging to Mr. A. L. Peck, broker,
which was contained in a tin box standing
upon the safe. The burglars had not sufficient
time, after reaching the vault, or they would
doubtless have made their way into the safe,
but it would seem that morning came upon
them before they were aware of it.
The porter, on reaching the store at half
past six o'clock this (Monday) morning, said he
heard a noise in the back room. He went
to the door, but found it fastened on the
inside so securely that it resisted his ef
forts to open it. In a short time all
was quiet, and he waited the arrival of the of
ficers of the bank. informing them of what
he had heard, the door was burst open, when
they beheld, to their astonishment the floor
covaed with piles of brick, dirt and burglar's
implements. Information was immediately
sent to the Third precinct station house, and
Capt. Jameson, with some policemen, shortly
made their appearance. By this time the bur
glars had made good their escape. A man
named Harmon Roberts, who, it is said, bad
something to do with the place, was taken in
to custody and locked up in the Third precinct
station house, on suspicion of being concerned
in the burglary.
The tools used by the burglars were quite a
curiosity, consisting of large bars of iron, jim
mys, spikes, jacks, &c., in all nearly a cart
load. They were all secured and carted to the
third precinct station house. From the time
the burglary was discovered a large crowd of
persons surrounded the place, anxious to grati
fy their curiosity with a sight of the Herculean
labors of the burglars.
