This department of the Fair was completely stocked with domestic fowls many of which were deserving of but the above, in competition with others.of similar age, deserve ireeminent notice. Was daily in attendance, and its spirit stirring music was a most attractive feature at the Fair. The result of this Fair has satisfied the members of the Institute that they will be sustained by the people iu the great work which they have undertaken. Tito Premiums for the next Fair will be published in proper time and all means in the power of the managers used to make it bene ficial both to exhibitors and visiters. The names marked thus received Pre miums and the others Diplomas. DREADFUL. trIDEMIU.—ACCOUntS from Nor folk, Portsmouth, and Gosport, Virginia, give a melancholy picture of the condition of those cities, occasioned by the ravages of the yellow fever. From 25 to 50 deaths,occur daily at Norfolk and fron 10 to 15' at Portsmouth, and this, too, though all who can possibly get away have left the infected district's. The greatest suffering prevails—many of the sick having no persons to take care of them in consequence of the panic. The , • streets are deserted and business for the most part sus pended. Large amounts of money have boon collected in various parts.of tho Union to ad minister relief l The epidemic is,said to differ from the disease of the same name f iteretolore prevailing at the, South.

The Bucks County Agricultural Fair took place yesterday at Doylestown, and was rendered attractive by a baby show, and an exhibition of female eques trianism for prices. GREAT OUTRAGE.-WO learn from the cor respondence of the Philadelphia, Ledger that a man named Patterson, twenty-one years of. age, was brought to Chester county prison on Wednesday night. last, upon n charge of com mitting one of the most fiendish outrages ever perpetrated, in attempting first to violate the person of ayoung female acquaintance, and then.to murder her. The man resides in West Whiteland township, near the West Chester Railroad, and resides with .a farmer named Thomas Hoskins. The outrage was perpetra ted on the evening of Wednesday, in a lonely spot, and the female was left in a condition which he doubtless supposed to be lifeless— the murder being designed to destroy all evidence of his guilt. The female in question and who at present is lying in a most precari ous position, also resides with Mr. Hoskins, as does Patterson. It appears that on Wednesday afternoon, a female acquaintance of Miss Workman resid ing at the Steamboat Station, called to make a visit and remained until evening, Ithen she returned home. Miss Workman accompanied her for some distance, and they were escorted by Patterson. After separating from her friend, Patterson and Atiss Workman return ed homewards. The path leads diagonally across the field east of the Steamboat and then across two or three other fields to the West Chester Railroad. Half way between the two roads, and but a short distando from a house, Patterson attempted to take liber ! . ties, but meeting resistance, he resorted to force; afior a struggle he threw her 'to the ground, beat, her on the head, bruised her neck, and whether his purpose was anon plit•hed or not, left her in almost a lifeless condition. Patterson went back to the Steam boat Hotel on the Columbia Railroad, rind there stated that as he and Miss Workrimn were going along, they met two men, one' of whom seized him and held him while the other seized the young woman, Miss Work man; and that notwithstanding his efforts a wanton outrage was comiiiitted on Miss W., and that she was beat and murdered. Mr. Whitohill, in company with two others, went to the place described by Patterson,•and there they found the young woman 'in a most de-, plumbic) condition: She was barely conscious of her condition and able to describe the out rageous conduct of Patterson, who will proba bly meet with his deserts. Her case was con sidered very critical- from fracture of the skull and other injuries. • SPIRITUALISTS' Pic NlC.—The Spiritualists 'of New York had a pie nic; a feW days ago, at :West Flushing, L.

The Pope has excommunicated t' e King and ministers of Sardinia, rn account of thti recent confiscations of church 'property, -and had a sharp correspondence With Zavala, Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, upon the same subject. In the British Parliament, the annual statement of affairs in India had pro voked a spirited debate, in which Mr. John Bright made a conspicuous figure. Lord John Russell had made a vigorous speech against the continvauce of the war, but the effort had made no Ibpression. By the arrival at New York, of the steamer George Law, bringing $1.285,616 in gold, we have later advices from California and the Pa cific. A fire in Stockton has destroyed twenty houses. Loss $30,000. , Another tire in San Francisco has distroyed Gm same number of houses. An earthquake of a violent and des tructive charmer has occurred at Los Angelos.

The Allies then soiled fur Russian American, but did nothing there, as the place is a fur-trading post, prottcted by treaty between Britain and Russia. A telegra phic communication has been opened between' Panama and Aspinwall. NEW OItLEAN,S Aug. 25 —By the arrival of the Orizaba we have advices from Vera Cruz to July 22. Santa Anna left the city of Mexi co, on the 9th, under an escort of 2500 men, and upon his arrival at Perote signed his,ab- Ilication of the Presidency. On the 17th he embarked at Vera Cruz, for novena. A day or two after leaving the city of Mexico; 700 or 800 of the escort revolted, and, after killing one or two officers, proceeded to join Alvarez. General Curre has been appointed Pro visional President, and , General La Vega Com mander-in-Chief of the Army. The State prisoners at the city of Mexico had been liberated, and a 'mob committed a number of excesses; the house of Santa Anna's, mother-in-law was completely gutted •in the excitement. ' The appointment of Pedal, who came pas senger" iu the Orizaba, has been revoked, as Minister to the United States. RUSSIA AND A PROTRACTED WAR.-A writer in the Journal of Commerce, who has been a resident of Russia, says that in a' long war the Allies have =oh the best eli!ndo - ; that Russia has been accumulating material for the war for the last quarter of is century, but that in a campaign or two more her resources will be exhausted. 'He says that Russia pays $l5 for every hundred weight of gunpowder transported from Moscow•to Perekop, a dis tance of 1000 miles, and for other munitions in proportion. It is argued that such a drain upon the Russian treasury as is now going on will force her to yield at last.' Perhaps so, but in a war of this kind both partite Aire likely to lose wore than they can over ypo to gain.
