; SCOTT s l)tt1 .t\ORIV BATTLE.--A cor
respondent of the N. 0. Delta thus writes
of Gen. Scott's demeanor
Gen, Scott, at the head of our army,
during the engagement, received a slight
wound in the leg. and what is very remar
kable, no person whatever except himself
was aware of it until after the battle was
over. A great deal has been said andovrit
j ten in reference to the ability of Den.
Scott as a miliotry man. but those who
have not seen him in command and under
fire, cannot form any just conception of his
ability. Ilis cool consideration of every
thing around him—his quick percepticiii—
his firm resolve and immediate execution

leans Picayurie is urgent in exemplifying
the necessity of reinforcing Gen. 'la:dorsi
line. It says :—"The recent news from,
the Rio Grande is of a characutr to lead
us to suppose the' Mexican report that
they had obtained an advantage over Gen.

think there is good reason to expect."
Naws 'sou Mixtco.---According to
the Vemtrow correspondent of the "Picay
une there is but a poor prospectof any
news from Gen. Stott for some length of
time. He says a—
"I suppose we will have to wait again
until;, he English courier • arrives before
we receive authentic news from Mexico,
nd it is even doubtful if he will bring any
thing that can be made public. under exist

permission which was extended to the

will be sent but seldom."
Like all the - recent - accounts; the next
news- will prOlobly be from. Mexican
sources. .
Is tr so I—A. Washington correspondent
of the New York Herald, in regarti,to the
war and hs origin, says :
"lion the whole,•wo think It may be
assumed that had the character of the
countries of New Mexico • and California
been understood two years ago as being a
continuous desert for a thousand miles,
, . an d fur an talon at clip
scope north and south, a way might have
been discovered through which the peace
would have been maintained, and a perma
nent boundary between us and , Mexico
conceded, defined, and established. In
other words, had it'been known in the nut
.set that New Mexico and California would
not pay for the powder, war urouldhave
been superseded hy. a leas expensive agen
cy of settlenient."
Mere is a clear admission that the war
was commenced by Mr. Polk for the ton
gue:l.lf territory, is. no doubt, in
part correct. But we verily believe, if Mr.
Polk and hie Pkrty had not expeCted to
make greet political capital out of this ag
gressive war, it would not ,have been com

Wonwas or OzoLootr.—::More than
nine thousand different animals have been
changed into stone. The rsees , or genera
of more than half of these are now extinct,
not being at present known in alivlng state
upon the earth. From the remains of
some of these ancient animals they must
have been larger than any living animals
now known upon the earth. The Mega
therium, (great beast,) says Bucklarxl, from
a skeleton, nearly perfect, now in the mu
seutn at Madrid, was perfectly colossal.—
With ahead and neck like those of the
Sloth, its legs and feet exhibit the charac
ter of an Armadillo and the Anteater. Its
fore feet were a yard in length, and more
than twelve inches wide, terminated by
gigantic claws. Its thigh bone was nearly
three times as thick as that of the elephant
,and its tail (nearest the body) six feet in
circumference. Its tusks were admirably
adapted fur cutting vegetable substances,
and its general structure and strength were
intended to lit it for digging in the ground
for roots, on which it principally fed. L

ms.-1 most interesting group presented
itself before us twoyoung female slaves,
both with most pleasingeountenances,atood
together closely embraced, the arm of One
round the neck of the other ; their attilude,
as. well as the strong likeness between
them, liointing them out at once as sisters.
By their side was an African slave7dealer,
in whose ferocious countenance if seemed
impossible to discern n trace of human
feeling. lie was armed with a large heavy
stick, with which he drove theni to and fro
literally like a herd of animals. Three er
four Turks wore discussing, "with consid

just before we Caine in, and one of the par
ty, a stout, good looking man, was paying
down the money. NVhen this was com
pleted, with an imperious movement of the
hand, he motioned to his newly-purchased
slave to follow him. It was the youngest
and the most timid of the two sisters whom
he had selected. Nothing could have been
more painful than to watch the intense, the
terrified anxiety, with which both had fol

hard to say which face was must eloquent_
of misery ; but the Turk was impatient ; he
clapped his hands together. This was a
well-knowri signal. A slight tremor shook
the frame of the young slave ; her arms
fell powerless at her side, and she turned
to follow her master. The voiceless but

TION Saturday week a gentleman
brought into Portsmouth, (Ohio,) from
the Bloom Furnace, Scioto cannity, , a part'
ofnin- Wit man, found in the ore bed :
The part we saw was• the foot and part of
the leg. Having been converted into iron
by a gradual process, the minutest divisions,
as between toes, Ste. were not visible; but
the general outline of the foot and - ankle
were palpable. The spreading across the
toes, the general outline of the toes, the
heel, ankle, &c. were perfectly plain.--
We were told that the head and arms were
still more plain. There could not be the
least doubt of its having been a man. Nor
is there much doubt of the manner in whi'at
it came into this condition. The =body
must originally have been petrified in lime ;
but of this there remains now only the out
sitte incrustation, which will crumble off.
What was the man is now iron. By some
natural ! process, the iron must have grown
out of the lime: And here 'iris 'them e for

seem to leave' no room for doubt—this
iron man would afford one of the moat

SIR Ciertnot: Cocastinst.-L-The English
papers of last August announce the death
of GENgRAL Vl* 0 gniale COCRAVIM aged
84. He neeomprinied the British military
force, which, in A tigu , t, 1814, invaded and
raptured the city of Washingion. In that
capacity the gallant Admiral did the pres
ent proprietors of the National Intelligen
cer the honor to superintend in person the
sacking of their printing offiee, the destroy
ing of the innocent types, and the burning
of the books—the building then occupied
by - The publishers being eared from the
flames only by the representations of dis
tressedleinatOs, whose adjoining houses
would have fallen with it. The invw !ers
had [turned the Capitol and the Presit em's
house, and theonly priVate property they
took the trouble to destroy was that of the
editors of the Intelligencer.
stated in an English paper that Bangui),
the Thane of Lochaher, who resided in
the castle of luverlochy, was the progeni
tor of the Stuart family, of . whom many of
the crowned heads of Europe are descend
; ed. So that it is no wonder that Queen
Victoria should select Fort William. the
capital of Lochaber, (or her landing-place
on her visit to this part of her ancient
kingdom of Scotland. Through Mary,
Queen of Scotts, and the tat James of Eng-
Asndt, -the -Guelph-fonsity- wereAltreody—da,

witches' prophecy, therefore, in Macbeth,
that the children of Batumi should be
, kings, is fully verified in the person of the
present occupant of the English throne.
MOUNT VERNON.—An effort is to be
mEde at the coming session of Congress to
secure an appropriation of $lOO,OOO. on
certain conditions, for the prelim° of Mt.
Vernon. It is said that Mrs. IVashington,
the present proprietress, is willing to dis
pose of it: -•Philadelphia Ihr!lran.
MxLsmcnoLv.—Tliti number of immi
grants to Canada, who have died in three
months on ship board, or after they were
landed, is aeren thousand one hundred and
forty. •
A vessel, recently arrived at Gross Isle
from Londonderry. had when she sailed
300 passengers, eighteen of whom died on
the passage, and 120 were landed sick.—
At Gross Isle several of the clergymen in
attendance and sixteen of the nuns were
sick of the fever.
Enact& or FEAR.—TIie peasants Of
Sardinia are in the constant habit of hunt
ing eagles and vultures, both for profit and
as an amusement. In the year 1839.
three young men (brethren) living near
San °Miran de Dolma Novas, having es
pied ari eagle's nest in the bottom of a steep
precipice, they drew lots to decide which
of them should descend to take it away.—
the danger did not arise so much from the
death of the precipice—upwards of a hun
dred feet—but the apprehension of the nu
merous birds of prey that -inhabited the
cavern. However, the lot fell on one of
the brothers, tv-oung matt of about two and
twenty, of athletic form, and of a. dauntless
with. - He belted a knotted rope round
his waist, by which his brothers could low

'a sharp infantry stir - 60M boldly tleseend..
ed•the rock and' reached the' nest in sal ety.
It contained' four eagles of that peculiarly
bright plumage called the light Isabella.-
I The difficulty now arose in bearing away
the nest. He gave a signal to his breth
ren, and. they began 'to haul him bp, when
he was•fiercely attacked by two powerful
eagles, the parents of the-young he
had captured. The onset war most furi
nos, they darkened the cavern by the flap
! ping of their broad wings, and it was not
' without much difficulty that he kept them
offmith his sword when, on 'a
the rope that suspended him swung round,
and on look ing- tip-'he. perceived that the
had partly severed it 'with 'hie sabre: 'At
' this fearful sight le was struck with such
a sudden terror that he was unable to urge
Ihis companions. to hasten hit delivery, al
though ho still kept his - fierce antagonists
at bay. His.brothers continuing to haul
him up, while their friendly voices endeav
ored to encourage him, he soon reached
the summit of the rock; but, although he
' continued to grasp the eagle's nest he was
speechless, and his hair, which had benne
been of a jet black color, was now us white
as snow.

*hat our county could hove given, nor whet
we had hoped she would give. Infitoces,
however, arising from sectional disappointment in
the selection of a portion of the county ticket, and
other local causes, in no wise connected with
the great principles at issue between the two pa
ate, operated to produce a limited turn out of nor
-friends in some of the best districts in the country,
which, together with the "nail vote in the town
ship generally, has served to reduce the majority
much below what the county is capable of Riving
for Whig principles. Still several of the district:,
—among them Petersburg, a miltonban, Freed.

well, and deserve all credit for the efficiency with
which they mine up to the good work ; had they

FROM MEXICO.—An acantily and piece•

about the intentions of our Government in the fol
lowing cool style: "The conclusion come to by
the Administration, is to take possession of a cer
tain line,and to reduce every thing north of it to
complete trkection. Where that line is to strike
i s not yet definitely determined. ' Some want to
go only as far as the sierra, and others wish to a
dopt a line from Tampico to Mazatlan; while a
third party would prefer the line from Vera Crux
to Arespnleo. I believe the line of the Isth
mus of Tehuantepec is .strongly pressed, and .
may yet be adopted by the President and his
cabinet, if the rigorous war which we are about to
begin will not induce the Mexicans at once
to make peace. Ihe Istlinnis of Tehuantepec
would be ti very proper frontier, settling at once
all our difficulties with Mexico, and leaving that
Republic with quite enough territory for the exer
cise of the taste, judgment and virtue of its patriot
ic inhabit mor. Joined to the United States of
Central America. it would still be a power of some
consideration. sufficient to entertain respectable
sedation, with other countries, though incapable of
doini mischief, or disturbing the tranquility of
Southern States."
DAMAGE BY THE: FLOOD.—The flood of
last week, which proved so destructive to fences,
&c. in t h is region, it seems extended in various di
rections through Pennsylvania, Maryland, and
Virginia. •In Baltimore and Washington cities
several sfeets were inundated to the depth of see
eral feet. The fine rail-road bridges over the Pa
tuxent and Eastern Branch. betneen these two cit
ies, together with four largo culverts, were entire
ly destroyed.
The damage along the Susquehanna has been
very extensive. We understand that the Can
at Duncan's Island, above Harrisburg, is entirely
swept away, as much so as after the Groff ot'4o.
The North Branch has been so seriously dama..ted
that it will be impossible to repair it during the
present season—while the Juniata diviron. it is
thought, cannot be redered navigable 'or two or
three Weeks. Two or three aqueductshave been
carried away, and several large breeches made in
the banks of the Canals, One of the hotels et
Clark's Ferry floated down the river on Satunlay.
The Pennsylvania Canal, between Harrisburg
and Columbia, is 'also seriously injured, and the
Tide-Water Canal is said to be but slightly injur
ed. A colored boy was drowned at Harrisburg
on Sunday. The farmers along the banks of the
river have suffered severely, many of them having
had the entire crop of corn swept away. The
lumber merchants have not eseapped ; and at I cr
lumbii, lumber to the amount of $7,000 has been
lost. We learn, however, thnt the authorities will •
make the most vigorous efforts to repair the Ca
nal breeches as rapidly as possible. The Pittsburg
Journal of Monday says : The Allegheny com
menced rising last Friday morning, and the water

MARYLAND ELECTION--The election in
Maryland has resulted in a triumph in all but the
Gubernatorial issue. The Whigs gain TWO mem
bers of Congress and rive members of the Legis
lature. Messrs. Chapman, Roman, Evans and
Chrisfleld, (Whigs) and Messrs. Ligon and M'.
Lane (Locofocos) are returned to Congress; last
year the dcletation stood 2 Whigs to 4 Locofbeos.
This secures a certain Whig majority in Congress
of four or five, probably mom.
The Legislature will stand 58 Whigs to 24
Locofemstin * the House—last year 53 Whigs to
29 Loci:trouts. The Whig majority in.the Sea
ate is five—same as last year. Inasmuch as the
Legislature now chosen will continue to sit for
two yesis under the biennial session law,'the elect
