SUMMARY OF SEWS THURSDAY, Augost 16 The steamships America and Lebanon ar rived at New York yesterday. Accounts frftm Portsmouth, Ye., give a melancholy picture of the Condition of that city. About hOOO persons have fled from it. The whole sur rounding country is overrun with - fugitives, who fill barns, kitchens, churches, .school hou ses and dwellings. The town looks quite,'de serted, entire streets having only one or two families remaining, districts depopulated, ho tels and stores closed, business ,suspended, nod society disrupted. At Bedford, yesterday, an application for a writ of babes corpus in the case of Paqsmore Williamson, was argued before the Supreme Court of the State by Charles Gilpin and .William M. Meredith, but after consultation among the Judges, all of whom were present, the Court- finally adjourned until October, without corning Urn decision. A meeting was held at the Merchants' Exchange, in Phila. :yesterday, to devise means to alleviate the distress caused by the epidemic at Norfolk and Portsmouth. A large committee was ap la to collect money. :. - ii(;00 was subscrib ed un the.spot, A similar meeting was held yesterday, at the Exchange in Baltimore; and also .one at the New York Corn Exchange, at which a committee of fifteen was appoiined to collect money. In Kansas territory the Su preme Coutt has decided the actions, of the mob legislature legal and valid. The seat of government for the territory has been pernm neatly located at Lecompten,on the Kansas river, about 60 miles from Westport, by a vote of the Legislature. The enormous snake which has been fig-wing for some time past in Silver Luke, N. Y., hits been captured—so it is said. He was 39 feet long His set vices have been engaged by Barnum, which of course attests the truth of the story. St. Louis papers mention that the steamer Kate Swinney, one of the boats chartered by the government to carry stores up the Mis,ouri rivet, struck a snag on her return trip from Fort St. Pierre, while passing the foot of Ver million, 800 miles at eve Council Bluffs, anti tore away nearly the whole bottom of her, hull so that she sunk in thirty feet water in abont five minutes. So sudden was the wreck that nothing could be saved except the lives of the officers and crew, who made their escape in the boats, and by, means of them reached St. Joseph, Mo., six hundred miles distatit. The Norfolk Beacon complains that the fugitives from that city are most inhospitably treated by all the neighboring towns, being kept off for fear of the fever. Monday last was obser ved in Norfolk as a day of public penitence and.prayer to the Almighty that he.would iu mercy stay the dreadful scourge with which tL portion of 'the city is afflicted. . SATURDAY, August 18 The Corn Exchange of New York, has sent $2,000 to the Norfolk suffierers by yellow fe ver. In Portsmouth, on Thursday, there were fifteen new cases of yellow fever, and twelve deaths. The fever at Norfolk is in creasing. In Baltimore, $5,00t) has been raised for the sufferers. Five deaths and three new cases of yellow fellow fever occurr ed at Richmond on Thursday. The . South Carolina Know Nothing State Council has abolished the CatholiC test, and allows Tiny native•-to join the order who renounces all civil allegiance to any foreign potentate. A duel between Messrs. Faulkner and Boteler, two members of the last Congress, has been prevented by the arrest of the principals. MONDAY, August 20 The yellow fever continues its ravages in Norfolk and Portsmouth, the number of cases per day increasing even while the number of population is rapidly diminished 11 flight.— More than three•fourths of the stores in Nor folk aro closed, The Howard Association is doing heroic service. There were 29 now cases of the fever in Norfolk on Friday. The deaths at Portsmouth average eight per day, in a population of 2000. Miss . Lucy Andrews, of Syracuse, New York, has arrived at Nor folk, and offered her services as nurse. The deaths in the city of Now York last week num bered 638—an increase of 71 over the previ ous week. The deaths in, Philadelphia last week numbered 280, of which number 196 Imo children, 109 being under one year old. The Hon. Abbott Lawrence, of Massachusetts, expired in Boston, on Saturday morning ut eleven o'clock, in the 63d year of his ago, of congestion of the liver. The yellow fever in New Orleans is at a stand. The deaths in the Hospital for the past week were 138,. and the number of eases cured 132, The majority for Winston, the Democratic candidate for Go v veruor in Alabama, is over 11,000 votes. TuEspny, August 2L A large Democratic meeting to sympathise with the sufferers by the Louisville riot, was held on Saturday evening at Milwauldo.

TIM RAVAGES or CHOLERA AT FORT 1111. E y.—The New York Tribune has a letter dated Fo•t Leavenworth, August sth, giving an account of the reports that had reached there in relation to the ravages of the cholera at Fort Riley. The writer says: Major Ogden, (commanding officer at the flirt,) dispatched a messenger on Weilne , day last, stating that his men were dying off by dozens daily; that he and all the other officers Were almost Worn out by their exertions in taking care of the sick. And in addition to this calamity seven of the newly erected . buildings had been struck by lightning and almost demolished, killing eleven men. Yesterday another messenger arrived with dispatches to Sumner at Fort I.ea VCll worth stating that Major Ogd n was attacked with the disease, which was assuming its most fatal charaeter—pr,ving fatal in many in stances in thirty minutes. Mr. Danton, of this city, brothci of Major Ogden, left here at six o'clock last evening fur Fort ltiley, taking with hint Dr. Phillip . Scone forty" miles on the road they met Sergeant Long with dispatches containing news of the death of Major Ogden and many others --The wile, four children and servant girl of Mn.j Woods died within one hour from the time the first wtp attacked. Mr. P. found Sergeant Long at the road side perfectly exhausted, having ridden thy wn three horses, alter .being up several duiys and nights taking care of the sick. Serg. L. represents affairs at the Fort iu the worst conditioMimaginable. None were found willing to bury the dead. Dr. Simmons and all the ladies et. the garrison had fled.— The chaplain was the only Officer left alive, and the soldiers scattered in every direction. Mr. Sawyer, who has charge of the f üblic works at Fort Riley, wits having much trouble with the bands employed hs• the government, who had broken into the store rooms, seized the liquors, and were, at the time of the mes senger's leaving, endeavoring to get hold of the government funds. A detachment of troop.. left Fort Leavenworth to-day, and hope t reach Riley in time to prevent further outrage by the Mob. FRIDAY, August 17 AN INDESTRUCTIBLE MATERIAL. —An' under taking has been started,in England under ro pectable auspices, callea the British Slag Company, with the' view of carrying out a method patented by Dr. W. 11. Smith, of Philadelphia, which has lately attracted con siderable attention, for converting the slag or refuse of iron works into an indestructible material capable of being applied to various common uses for which stone or marble is at present employed. The amount of refuse in the manufacture of iron is in the average pro portion of 2 tons to 1 ton of metal, and this product has hitherto been not only valuless but a serious and accumulating cause of an noyance. By the new process it is alleged to be . made available for paving, flagging, tiling and all general building purposes, while at the same time it will receive polish and color, so as to fit it for the more choice requirements of orda mental design. It is computed that 0,000,000 or 8,000,000 tons of iron slag aro thrown aside as refuse in England every year, and if the i ivention should realize the promise held forth a regards its inexpensiveness, the supply of the new material would consequent ly roach any e tent of demand. The remu neration of the patentee is stated to have been made entirely dependent on the success of the enterprise, and to test the questions of cast and consumption it is proposed to confine the first outlay for works to a moderate sum, not exceeding 5,000 or £lO,OOO. The capital of the company is fixed at £120,000, in £5 share, WHAT TILE RUSSIANS SAT.--The Official Or gan at St. Petersburg expresses the opinion that the Allies, by their inactivity and want of enterprise, have allowed the opportunity to slip by When Sebastopol might have''been taken. It now says the city is impregnable; that it can replace ono hundred dismounted guns in a night, or can exchange 60,000 fa tigued troops against 50,000 fresh troops; that the Allied cannot,swith double the force they can dispose of, cut off the mimmunica tion by Porekop ; that the Russian army, fighting for, its country and its sovereign, is animated by a better spirit than is the hetero geneous mass of French, English, Turks. Egyptians and &Minion& contending for au abstract idea and a confused interpretation of the duties of civilization. -There is some force in these remarks, and the Allies themselves appear to be impressed with the same idea, for the preparation of defences they are making at Kainiesoli lookevery like. a' pro tection in the event of being compelled'to ro . embark. neral of Abbott Lawrence. A fire nt Lewis iston,Me., on Friday, destroyed property to the amount of t 100.000, including twenty-six dwellings, and the greater portion of the busi ness establishments. The news from Mexico, as we find it in full in the New Orleans pa pers, entirely falsifies the late telegraphic despatches, and shows that the operator omit ted all the items except those which tavored the rebels. iNo conducta of specie had been captured, nor was there any fear of such an event. The government troops, instead of being beaten by the rebel s , have beaten them. ~ 7 .,(.. „ ,v, ~,..,„, li. . ‘. .1"....i,... ~. „ s, :.,... ?..p.i..il• i l .1,,..: f.4.0041i,,f ii .7.. r,.• ~e,. % .x..

The correspondent of the St. Louis Demo crat, writinglrom Shawnee. says: "Miring my al e . nce last week, a bill making negro stealing a capital offence, was pass:A by the Council, and is now in the hands of a House Committee. When it is recollected that in such cases the evidence of negroes is ad mitted, this act will excite wide spremlaston ishment. The liv4 of no. citizens are safe against the hate of any slavehulder who chooses to instruct his negroes to commit per jury. Unless extraordinary pains are taken in trials for such cases, this act may yet lead to many cold-blooded official murders." A Westport, pIo.) correspondent of the Now York Post gives the following report of a speech of Geneial Stringfellow in that town: -General Stringfellow being called out, said he was at ti loss to know on what topic the people desired him to treat. They certainly did not want him to congratulate them on the removal of Reeder. lie did not consider that a subject of congratulation; they had fought awl mastered the present governor, and did not want to do the work over. Ile did not know the new governor, but Pierce yes a coward, and had not the nerve to appoint it man who would do the South justice. For instmee, he hail appointed a Southern man to govern Ne nska, where slavery could net naturally go, while in Kansas, which is of the South, he has given us a northern man. Men who come here from the Northern States, professing to stand on the principles of the Kansus-Ne braskrt bill, were asking to,make the territory a den of thieves and a harbor of abolitionism. The idea of a national democratic party in Kansas. he said, was ridiculous. Every na tional democrat is an abolitionist in disguise —such a one might not steal a nigger himself, but would pat those on the 'Melt who do—nine ut of ten men in the north are abolitionists. We want no more importations from Pennsyl vania; we have enough of the Pennsylvania pilailar sovereignty men, if this is the way they proctice the doctrine. Ile further said that if they wanted to be congratulated upon the election of the present legistature, he could do that. The work had been done thoroughly and well. lie had never seen a legislature embracing more talent, or one whose laWs were more indicative of wis dom—their legislation would be sustained—he could pledge himself that the Supreme Court of the territory were alt right. The legisla ture would paisslasie..tnaking criminal the ex pression of abolition sentiments. He bad been astonished that people of Jack • son county (Westport is in Jackson) allowed the head quarters of abolitionism to be planted on_ their sail (Kansas City;) they were sus pected of being unsound for letting northern emigrants cross their county ou their way to Kansas; all northern men were alike, and it was the duty of our people to prevent any northern man from setting foot within our boundaries. What was wanted was more hemp, or honest men would not be able to re main here in peace. For himself, if northern men were to hold Kansas he should seek a home further south. A great many other characteristic specimens of Mr. Stringfellow I have neither time nor inclination to repeat. Put•ticularly ho was severe upon Pennsylvanians, saying that the Pennsylvanians who had come here in search of d—d fools would yet go away with fleas in their ears. Stringfellow, as a speaker, is ad mirably calculated to accomplish his olject with the people among whom ho lives, which is nothing more nor less than bloodshed and final disunion: MORE EXCITEMENT IN KA:al/O.—MU have had another row out in Kansas. It appears a man from Cincinnati named Kelly, said to be an abolitionist, undertook to lecture a Miss ourian named Thomason upon the impropriety of holding slaves, which resulted in a tight, Kelly being severely whipped. Immediately a publio meeting was called, at-which resolu tions were passed declaratorPnf an intenelon to rid the territory of all abolitionists. A committee was appointed to warn Kelly to• leave the territory Within an hour, but when the committee went to wait. upon hint ho was !ICI to be found. "DEATLI Or ABBOTT LAWRENCE.—A dispatch row Boston brings us intelligence of the death e l the Bon. Abbott Lawrence, an event which the recent accounts of his feeble health and failing strength have rendered every day more probable. "lie hied at 11 o'clock on Saturday morning. His disease is reported to have been congestion of the liver. As a well known member of an enterprising, wealthy and mu nificent family, his loss will be deeply felt in his own ,State and will attract attention throughout the country, through which ho was extensively known as one of the chief sup porters of the great manufacturing interest, and in a lesser degree as a publie man. CuoLnnA.—A letter from Fletningsburg, Ky., dated the 18th,istates that up to that time there had been 48 deaths from clolern, in the town and its" immediate vicinity. Most of the victims were Slaves, bat sorne belonged to the most: respectable class of,-citizens.— About twenty families only remained in the place, the, rest having left. Tho cholera is raging in various ports of Fleming county also. KANSAS LEGISLATURE i==ll=l At. a regular meeting of St. Johns Lodge, No. 260, A. Y, Masons, at their Lodge ltootu on Thursday evening 16th inst., the secretary reported a communication from brother J. A. Sterry, the gcntlunanly manager of the troupe of "Continentals" so favorable known in this community informing hint of the death of their colleague, brother W. It. FRISBIE. The lodge ordered the following minutes to be put un record. Resolved, That we not only admired brother Frisbie ns a men whose voice unrivaled for its depth and richness of tone failed not to thrill the auditor with delight, but we had the best grounds to entertain for him a high re• gard as a man; and as late a member of this Lodge, we bald him in brotherly centitlence and estecrit and it is therefore With Much re gret that we have received the intelligence of ,his early death. 13 NO. 51. Resolved, That n copy of this minute be communicated to the Widow of our lamented brother, and to his living colleagues, itrothers Sterry, Franklin, Smith and Huntington. Rewired, That this minute also be published in the papers of this borough • J. M. ALLEN, Sec.!' STILL LATER FROM EUROPE. The steamship Lebanon arrived at New York on Wednesday, with news from Europe two days later. A report was gaining ground that General Simpson, commander of the English army at Sebastopol, was about to resign on account of ill health, and be succeeded by Lord Hardinge, but another report says that l'elissier has arranged the forces-ft iii upon the Russian works; Ganrobert to com mand the right column, Simpson the left, awl , Pelissier the reserve. lienera i lutuit oyski, a distinguished Pole, / gas arrived in Loudon by special invitatia4 of the British government, to consult, it is 'supposed, oil the Polish question. The French works at r-3,bas topol are so close to the abuttis of the Malakoff that a man may throw a stone into it. There seems to be a doubt about the death of Gene ral Todleben, the Russian engineer, and some accounts state that he is reeov..ring from his wounds. An earthquake occurred at Lyons on the afternoon ut .luly which was also felt at Valence, on the Rhine. At Lyons, some houses were damaged, but no lives lost. The America also arrived on Wednesday at Halifax from Liverpool, bringing news tour days later than the Leb on's advices. She brings a report that the bom rdment of Sebas topol had been recommence , awl that pre parations were making fur a general assault. Sullenly', the Circassian chief, is not dead yet, but hes again descended from the mountains and threatened the Russians. Offers for the French lomremounted to 3,600,000,000 francs. Spain is said to have consented to send a con tingent force to the Crimea, but the reportis doubtful. In China the receurrlllierses rf the iusurgenis were but temporary check. ESCAPE OF A FOPriamt FROM WILLIA3ISPOEr JAIL.—The Gazette of the 15th, gives. the fol lowing account of the escape of Herman Fink, confined in the Willia.msp‘ort Jail, on last Thursday night. ' His escape from jail was a most desperate feat, in no wise owing to any look of precau tion on the part of Sheriff Bubb. He was heavily ironed and strictly confined in the northwest corner of the jail. He had re peatedly expressed an intention to kill .him self rather than go to the penitentiary, lie sawed off the chain which obtained his legs with a knife borrowed from one of the otLer prisoners in the jail. With a piece of stove grating as his only instrument, he succeeded in digging a hole through the wall of the jail, and getting out into the yard. With the slate from accross the bottom of hie beadstead, he built a kind of platform on which he reached from one window to the other on the outside of the jail wall and succeeded in climbing upon the roof. alking along the jail roof, he attempted to descend the lightning rod, as is supposed. at the eastern end of the jail, and finding descent impracticable, either fell or jumped to the ground from the roof of the building.— Ile must have fallen with great violence upon the brick pavement.. The bricks were broken and driven into the ground, and marks-•of blood found where he fell, and upon the gate where he went out, He escaped without other clothes than his shirt and pantaloons, and with irons upon his legs. Ho probably had confederates about to help him away, .tus no clue has since been obtained of him. It ill a hard matter to keep in confinement a man who evidently had so little regard for his own life. His escape was truly wonderful. • MURDERERS SEXTENCED.—The trial of the two brdthers Mask, who were gharged with the murder of Miss Smith, in Marshall county, Mississippi, has just terminated at Holly Springs. They were found guilty, and 'one is sentenced to be hung, the other to fifteen years' imprisonment in the Penitentiary:— Justice for once, it appears, has been meted out to murderers. INVITATION TO CANADA.—The Scotch, En glish, German,, and other foreign settlers, in Canada, have recently issued a circular, ad dressed to adopted citizens in tho United States, inviting them to Canada, in order that they may rid themselves from the influence of , the Know• Nothing societies, which they asseit is directly pointed against them in their busi-f, nese, political and religious matters. In New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine there will be a large crop of applt 8, although it is what is called the "aoa•beuring year." Ile— Gideon M.
