'Death of Marshal rtasinau.
The - Franklin brings intelligence o
•Ilfe death. at Vienna. on the o
° March, of Baron Haynan. the notorious
Austrian commander in Hungary during
- the recent 'war. Haynati was born! in
1786; at Cassel, and is said to haVe been
a natural son of the Doke of Hesse Cas
sel; by eg,oldemith's ilaughiet. He - was
broughrup a soldier, but was not distin •
guished, during the ureater part of hie
life, for anything exce pt his eccentrici
ties, which at times a mounted to an ap
pearance of insanity. In the revolution
ary. disturbances of 1840, he was consid •
ered a fit instrument for the ex-cution of
the coercive designs of Austria. and his
first service. at.the storming of Brescia,
was so satisfactory that . he was appointed
° in May, 1849, to command the ((Aces
then acting against the Hungarians.—
' ;His military movemprits were successful,
end"his victory at Themes war, followed
-by-a surrender Of Gorgey. led. to the ter
-mination of the war. His subsequent
cruelties to the Hungarians, and his bar-
'barons treatment of helpless women, are
matters of recenthistory that it would be
painful to rehearse 'how. They have
made hii - name execrated -whereverfree
.dam is known ; they were the' eauseof
his ignominious expoliion from England,
and they can never be so far forgotten as
to enti le him td-a decent position in hon
est-history. Since his removal from the
command in Hungary, Ife.has-been a des
pised and unhappy man, and he must
have anticipated death as a happy release
from the reproaches of c his own consci
ence, and the acorn of the human race.

In Florence we cannot, of couse, learn

THE STATE PAINTINGS.
The Harrisburg Union describes as a "great
farce," the allotting of the State Printing un
der the new law, which came off on Thursday
last, when every,member of the Legislature
who bad any knowledge of the Rut jest, must'
have' been satisfied of the folly of the pro-
Ceeding.' There were twentlyeight bidders for
the work, and the English printing was awar
ded to A. B. Ilmim.rox, at eleven and three
quarter cents per thousand ems for composi
tion, and eleven and three quarter cents per
token for press work. This, the tnion says,
is restricted to all cemponition i there being-no
opportunity 'of oharging double coniposition
on any of the extras, as the law is clear and
explicit against all double composition, which
was not the case under the old law. Mr.
Hamilton also, obtained the. German printing
at tourteen cents anda half per thottsand and
token. Whim the bonds come to be submit
led there was a defect in them, and the Con
vention adjourned over till afternoon, to enable
Mr. Hatnilton to obtain new bonds. When
the. Convention again met, the security wee
not deemed to bo sufficient by the Speakers of
the two Houses, and the Corivention adjourned
to enable him to obtain satisfactory security.
Every practical printer must Bee that this
work has been taken at rates that are entirely
- inadequate ; abl it is not to be expected that
itnprovetnent over the present Mode of
doing the work will be effected.
FLARE UP AT WASHINGTON,
Tkie Washington correspondent of the' N• Y
Tribune says: ✓
"Some days sine° John Tyler- applied
through - Caleb Cushing to Postmaster Camp
bell for the Virginia Mail Route Agency' for a
friend, and Campbell gave him encouragement.
Soon after, Mr. Hunter applied for the same
place for a friend of his. Mr. Campbell evaded
the application. Hunter left his papers anti
went away. r Yesterday the friend told Mr.
Hunter that there was some difficulty, and the
fatter called on Mi.. Hobbs about it, but
obtained no satisfaction Ile next went to
the President with no better "success ; rdturned
to the department; Mr. Campbell out; told
the messenger fo tell him as Soon as lie (Mr.
C.) came. jn. At length the gentleman
appeared and tried to evade the subject, when
Mr. Hunter exclaimed with an oath, who
commands this concern,' and then went on to
damn the Administration. He sni lit had
renegade Whig for Attorney General, and a
renegade. Virginia Route Agent, and no left in
high dudgeon." '
The Union denies this, but the well informed
believe it to be true.
HARIIISDUR . O POST OFFICE.—There is
fierce struggle said to be going on for the
Harrisburg Post Office. Mr. Barret, of the
Keystone,- backed- by Meters. Onmeron and
Brodhead, is " buoy as a be e," and his friends

of the Union, backed by James Huchtinan,

EDUCATION OF IDIOTS.—The House of Rep

to a committee. A very interesting exhibi
tion,of idint . ohildren took Once in the Roll of
the-house,on-ThuradaY evening, which was
witnessed by a large nudience of people; and
they were shown to be susoeptable of a re
markable development and improvement.

_Washin'gten letter-writer says, the ap

Philadelphia is likely to cause a great row in
the camp. The Pennsylvania Democracy are
much incensed. Every membei of•the State

vy Agent;' John Cochrane, Surveyor; John
A. Dix, (ex-Senator) sub-Treasurer; Charles
O'Connor, District Attorney ; T. V. Fowler,
Port-Master ; Abram T. Ilillyer, Marshal.
The New York appointrilents show another
attempt on the part of President Pierce tore
ward and reconcile tli'6 various factions who
united to elect him President. Ex• Senator
Dickinson, the Collector, is 'n noted, hunker,
while Ex-Senator Dix, who ;is made Sub-
Treasurer, is an equally distinguished Barn
burner, who supported Van Buren in 1848 and
With killed off Gen. Cass, This foot caused a
formidable opposition on the part of 'Southern
Senators to Dix's nomination, when they were
sent into the Senate for confirmation pn
Thursday last. Messrif. Rush, Bright, Btit
ler, of S C. and Mason, of Va : , spoke strong
ly ngiiinst the confirmation, while Houston,'
Douglass, Soule and others advocated it. All
the appointments were confirmed, however.—
The vote on Dix was twenty-eight in favor and
eight against him.- The notorious Capt. Ryn
dus is bitterly disappointed nt not teceniing
the Marshalship. Mike Walsh is also among
the disappointed, and both swear lustily over
their defeat. The amendments of ItickinsOn
and Dix it is said were managed by Secretary
Marcy, who wants them out of the way in
order to clear the ceurse for Lim in the Presi
dential contest of 1850.
On the same day, the following — nominations
were made to the Semite, for Baliintore:—
Philip F. Thomas; Collector; Jacob G. Davis,
Postmastet• ; John Betterly, Naval Officer; J.
IL Biscoe, Navy Agent; James Polk, Survey
or. The latter declines,
Most of the important appointments having
now been made we may look for a, rapid•nrid
bloody decapitation of tl c heads of country
Postmasters. The guillotine will not be stop
ped. We look for the removal of every Whig
from the highest 'to the lowest. None need
expect - to remnin - in place. The language of
Pierce's inaugural was the handwriting on the
wall which could - not be mistaken. Let the
work go On, therefore, and let us hear no7un
manly howlings from the Whigs such as dis
graced our opponents in 1848, who think that
" to the victors belong the spoils" is very good
doctrine until it is -brought to bear- upon
Li the Senate, on Monday of last week, Mr.
Evans introflucela resolution which was adop
ted, directing the Committee on Finance , to
bring in a bill providing for the sale of the
Public Works of the State. The vote on the
adoption of the resolution stood "21 to 10.—
We do not know what the prospect is for the
passage of such'n, bill in the lower Ilouse,
where the influence of the Canal Board is - so
controlling. The impracticabilit?Nof reform
ing :air present system of muungeinent of the
State Improvements is so palpable that the
only way to get rid of the plunderers that live
rind make fortunes nt the expense of the pub
lit treasury, seems to be in a sole of the Pub
lic Works. We helinve thotpublic sentiment
is in favor of the proposition, and we believe
the State would gain much by. its adoption.
On Monday, in the Howie, Mr.. Hoover call
ed up the bill to 'prevent fugitive slaves and
manumitted negroes from settling in this
Commonwealth. He advocated the bill, and I

TICIILIF. AT' SAN JUAN.
Advices from Greytown or San'Juan, to the
16th ult.., represent that the difficulties be
tween the citizens of that place and the Tran
sit Company, have ended in the interference
of the U. S. sloop of war Cyane to protect the
property. of the Company, and the San Juan
authorities have pulled down their flag and
surrendered the government of their city to
the Captain of the Cyan°, who would not nc•
cept it. ' The city government, which is com
posed of Americans and British, wished to
eject the Company from the lands where they
had creme,' their hotel and depot, and the
Mayor sent the carpenters to remove the
building. Just at this juncture, the, Cyane
arrived and drawing up in front of the depot
landed marines, sent 'svortl that the• writ of
ejectment should not be executed, and blocka
ded the harbor by rerming to allow boats to
pass frohf the town to the north side of the
bay. This produced,a great commotion in the
town, and a public indignation meeting has
been held aid a pi:otest adopted. The whole
cause of the dispute between the
of San Juan and Cie Transit Company is, that
the latter furnish the emigrants to California
with their supplies, and 'the emigrants have
no occasion to enter Greytoivn at all.
The giaiiing trade •which has sprung up,
has induced the authorities of Greytown to
wish to transferllA Company to their aide of
the bay, and for this purpose they called upon
tie Cumpdny to vacate, alleging that it was
necessary to establish the quarantine there.
The ordirtifire they adopted to enforce the de
sign; created Arcot excitolient among the em
ployees of the Company, and they applied to
Capt. Ha , ins; of the Cyane, for protection.
Whether Cant. IL. is justified or not in inter
fering with tho domestic government - of - San'
Juan, is a qumstion which must be determined
by the filets. .
News from Liverpool to the 19th ult. has

spoke of Austrian proceedings towards Sar

insurrection The Sardinian Government had
requested the British Government to interfere
against sequestration, and Great Britain wrote
a strong letter to Vienna; but, in the mean
time, the Austrian' authorities had stated that
was their intention to remove sequestration
from parties proving themselves innocent.—
Lord John Russel also stated that the Gov

THE UNITED STATES MINT.---By the state

papers by tho treasurer, Mr. E. C. Dalo„..wo
learn that the deposits of California gold for
March reached the very enormous sum of
$7,440,000, and froM nil sources $7,510,000.
The amount of silver bulliondeposited for the
month Is $22,000. The amount of gold.coined
is $5,603,808, all of which, except some
$7117.,000 is in double eagles. No silver was
a fined, in anticipation of action under the f;pw
coin bill. By the middle of the present month
the new halves, quarters, and other fractions
of the dollar, it is expected, will be ready for
delivery. The coinage of three. , cent pieces
reached the immense - number of 5.160,000.
Under the new coinage bill the value of this
little coin will be raised to the same standard
value of the other fractions of the dollar.
CALIFORNIA- —Addces from California have
been received by the' steamer Georgia, which
arrived nt New York on Monday evening. The
intelligence is two weeks later than previous
accounts. The chief point of interest in the
golden State was ,the extensive robberies that
were committed in the interior, by an organ
ized band under th g e Mexican Joaquin. Great
efforts have been made to capture the daring
bandits bitt hitherto without success.
