Wasbirstun, March
, iTbe Supreme Court adjourned on Thursday.—
At this term, about sixty out oftwo hundred causes
hive been determined This state of the docket
infatuates an alarming increase of business or ruth,
er an alarming delay of justice, which as long agu
oS the signing of ChaU*, was recoguized
as equivalent to their denial*of it. The day before
Adjournment, a decision was given in ths Interest
ing case involving the question of the boundary
liflß between Missouri and lowa. The latter Stale
claims that the line of Its Southern boundary start*
at a j>aint in the Mississippi liver, called the De«
Moines Rapids. The Missouri people contend
that it commences at .the rapids in the river Des
Moines, fifteen bules farther North. The line ex*
tends Westward for more than three hundred
miles, so that the tract in -dispute contains some
four or five thousand square miles—perhaps ten
times as large as the principality of nil the Coburg*-
lowa has gained the cause, and if the decree of tbr
Court shall Covet the whole ground, amj. conclude
the controversy, will of course gain the territory,
large mid fertile enough to sustain half a million oi
inhabitants. Such a this, and suah a re
sult, will support a remark of,the acute and pro
found De Tocqueville, who,- remarking in bib “ Dc
jdocracy in America,' 1 upon the jurisdiction of our
Supreme Court, declares it id be a spectacle com

at Acapulco, on the lltli of February, to leave the

passage seem at this time but a blank to (he writer,
as lie, in common with nearly >*v«ry passenger »n
board, lay prostrate under the dominion of that very
disagreeable malady, sea sickness. Oa the 23d,
though the sea was very rough, many of us had so
;iar recovered as to be able to lake the fresh air of
tile deck, (hi the afternoon of this day, as we
were approaching the eastern limit of the Gulf
Stream, we were forewarned by certain indications
in the heavens of one of those sadden squalls so
frequent in Ihnt inlitude. Our sails were promptly
fiirfeif and every precaution taken lo receive and
resist the shock At length it liore down upon us
With exceeding violence, but our vessel outrode
the storm with great credit to itself nnd *alisfac
lion to tho-e whose lives depended upon its
safely. But tlie horror* of the night which was
now lost settiuc in u)k>n us will be fully compre
hended only by those who, like nivselt, participated
. The Gr«.'squall seemed but a prelude to one of
the most terrible gales tiiat eyer swept the cheerless
feisoin of the Gulf Stream. The mgnt had already
closed iu upon us, und both sen and sky assumed a
maQtle ofintenre blncirness, relieved only by the
occasional and phosphorcseut flashes of fitful light
that danced upon the cop* ol the exploding waves.
The scene, so full i*f the terrible, partook ol the sufe
Eight o’efook, and the storm still increased in se-
verity. Those ol in who had venlured until this

All.became confusion m the cabins. Men, chairs
and every movable article were jostled from side

And thus dismasted, und hopelessly disabled, we

In consequence of the disabled condition of the

•‘I hove juat returned from the scene of a most
horrible tragedy which took place last night.—

Charles Cortieu, ooeol bts immediate nkighbcra.—
He at once gave the alarm and hastened Inward

and his two sons, one .sowa and Ihe other thirteen
V«»r» of age. Judge of the horror of the bem-w
lent neighbor when be *aw that the room occupied
by the children had just fallen in, and on the straw
l»ed not yet consumed,lying umong tlw rums, were
the disfigured and scarcely recognizable remain*
of the two l>oy*, llicir limbs were already burnt 1..
ashes. The bony of the wretched (stlier Liy neat <

the fire. It was too late to stop tbe rooflsgratfon.
As soon os possible tbe almost formless cinders
were removed. It could be seen that the father
had cut hi.* own throat alter firing (hr bouse
There is uo doubt m the mind ol the neigh

by a blow on the head. He also tied up eighteen
head of cattle aud one none in the baru previous

Advantage* ok Railboaos.—U is supposed that
loe wealth created by the rise of property tbioujh
which railroads are made, is more than equal to the
actual cost of the road; that i*, the eost of the rail
road, a* to the whole* community, will be leas than
nothing. P. P. P. Degrand, in a speech on the
South Shore Railroad in Massachusetts, stated
that the actual rise ot land on its borders, caused
by the existence of the road, cannot be valued at
less than an average of V>o per acre, for a strip
two inilev wide on each -ide of it.
If we were to apply tins role jo the proposed
Auburn and Binghamptoa road, and the people
owning a strip ot land two miles oa each aide i>{ it
were to build the road themselves, they wmilJ real
ize more than four hundred per cent on their in
vestments. But we will suppose ibal the rise in the
value of this strip of land, created by the road to
Bmgbampton would l»e ooly-912 f>o per acre —one
fourth of what Mr. Degrand estimates the rise to
have been by the South Shore Railroad. A square
mile cuolainq six hundred and forty acres, and the
lour miles square 2000 acres. This rise ol Sl2 TiO
would create an additional value of $32,000 for
the whole distance Iwtweon Auburn and Bing-
Immpton Each tuile ol th«* railroad would there
fore create wealth to the amount of. $32,000
The whole cost of the road would be not
over 22,000
Showing a clear gain per mile of. 10,IK)0
Or for the whole distance 70 miles 700,000
This is placing the very lowest estimate upon
the probable rise in the vallie of (be land through
which it will run. At the estimate ol Mr. Degraud
—not a very wild mm—of a rise of sf<o per acre,
the clear profit to the land owners along the line
would be nearly 5300.000. Thus it will be seen
that a railroad from this city to Ilinghumplon will
in reality create property above its coat, of seven
hundred thousand dollars. This large sum would
lie made by the farmers along the route.
But this is not the only Advantage that would
l»e realised to the country through which it would
, run. Kvery town in which the road wilMte loca
ted would receive taxes on SI . r io,ooo or $200,000
ot Railroad property, to sny nothing of liip increase
ol the price oj all agricultural products, cheese,
butler, wood, Sec. So that the public would be
largely the gamers by the construction of such a
road, ns we nave already intimated, even if they
were to butld it nil themselves. Of this there can
be bo conjecture. The experience of every Rail
rood in the country proves that roads increase the
value Ol the land through which they ure made,
va-stly beyond their cost .—AlUnty A./rermer.
Mr. Mackay, an English barrister. has published
his travels in the United States. The ibllowmg
is an extract in relation U> the l>c&my of American
“There are two points m which it is relJuui equiii
led, never excelled—the dawn- chaslenesa and
delicacy of the Ibntiires, and the smallness and ex
quisite symmetry of the extremities. In the biter
respect .particularly, the American ladies arc singu
larly fortunate. I have seldom, seen one, delicate
ly brought up, who had not a line hand. The leel
are also generally very small and exquisitely mould
ed, particularly those of a Mnryland gttl; who, well
aware of her attractiveness, has a ihouxauJ little
coquettish ways of her own ot lemptinuiv exhibit
ing them. Thai in which the Ainerieun wotrnu
are most deficient is tumidness of figure. But it is
a mistake to «tip[H>BC that well-rounded forms are
not to be found in America. Whilst this is the char
acteristic of Knglisti beauty, it is not so prominent
a lealure in America. In New Kngland. m ihc
mountainous districts of Pennsylvania and Mary
land, and in the central valley ol Virginia, the female
form is. generally speaking, as well rounded and
develop'd aa it i* here; wbdsl'a New ICuglund com
plexion is, iu nm«- cases <mt ol'teu, a match lor nn'
English one. Tins, howevrr. cnnii'd Ik- said ofthe
American ladies us a Thcyure, m'the majon

fly »iipenuduced bv their want ol exercise. An
English girl will go through ns much nxerase m a
forenoon, without dreaming of fatigue, as an Ameri
can will iu a day, and be overcome by iheexertion.
It i» also true that American is more evanescent
than English beauty, particularly in Ihe south,where
it seems lo fade ere it has well bloomed. But il is
much more lasting in the north and northeast; a re
mark winch will npjdy lo ih<- whole region north of
the Potomac, and CUM of the i-al.e«, aud I have
known instances of Philadelphia Ix-anty as l->vcly
