EXTRAORDINARY AND DIESTRUCTIVC FRESHET.- We noticed, in the last Spy, the rapid rise of the Susquehanna; and it is now our duty to record lame of the effects, of one of the most extraordina ry freshets which bas occurred within the memory of any resident in the vicinity. During Saturday, the good was like that occasioned by the clogging of ice in the narrow places below—so rapid as to supereede the possibility of precautionary measures to prevent the destruction of the valuable property, —lumber, shingles, &c., with which our shores were lined; and whole fleets were swept away, some to be wrecked along the Susquehanna, and some to find its way without a pilot, to the Day. A very exciting scene, which we, with hundreds of our citizens chanced to witness, occurred on Sat urday afternoon. A fleet consisting of several rafts, and a number of arks, loaded and empty, were swept from thUr moorings above the bridge, and the rivermen hearing the alarm, ruched to the rescue. Several strong armed and brave hearted fellows succeeded in manning the floating acres, which were rushing at race horse speed, towards the dam below. We joined the crowd, and were just in time to see those floats which were not so fortunate as to make a landing, taking the fearful plunge over the dam, into the boiling and reacting waters below, or gliding rudderless through the schute, out among the rocks and billows. The fearful speed of the water, and the oarless state of ' the crafts, made this adventure in danger to those concerned, and in excitation to the lookers, equal to a Cerro Gordo or a Churabusco. Although the couplings of the rafts were broken, and some of the arks crushed like eggshells upon the rocks, no person was injured in the least, and we arc gratified to be able to state that the most or the property will be saved. Several parcel. of lumber, parts of rafts, &e., have, however, gont. Lod have not yet been found. We learn front above that the Canals are so seri ously broken and otherwise injured by the flood, that there is little probability of a resumption of the transportation business this season. This is par ticularly unfortunate to those forwarders who have freight lying along the line of the Canal, and for emigrants—several of whom have returned to Phil. adelphia to take some other conveyance to the West. We arc happy to state, on the authority of an officer of the Tide Water Can't, that the damage on that work is so trifling that filly dollars will make all repairs. The mails from the North and West, have been detained for several days; and from every portion of the country comes accounts of disasters by the flood. Baltimore was at one time cut off from all communication, except by telegraph, with all the surrounding country. We have heard of no loss of lives occasioned by the freshet. Our townsman Mr. Abram Bowers lies just corn plated a superb boat intended In ply on the Permsyl. vania canal. The length of the keel is 61 feet and and she draws 9 a inches of water. She is a fine specimen of boat architecture, and Will compare favorably with any craft LILA walks the watcra of the " raging canawl." 1:= Ar-mos - r es I rem.—A horse attached to a wagon became frightened at the round or sight of a Loco. motive at the foot of Locust Street, last Saturday, and ran upon:the walk, falling, end throwing a man and a boy upon the street: with such force as to unsettle their thinking apparatus, and create con aiderabe alarm among the by-standers. We believe, however, that neither person was much hurt; and the extent of damages, was a pair of shells broken, and some harness rendered unfit for service. =MI AN Ex.vorrm.—The election in Columbia, Wag pattern worthy of imitation in places of greeter— and of less—pretensions; no lighting or other die. orderly conduct haling occurred throughout the day. Of course we would not hint that Lancaster might profit by the example. ELZGANT PA /NTINC.—Two orninibusses intended for Cincinnati, which arc awaiting the recession of the waters, are attracting tic admiring attention of all beholders. They were built, we understand, at Aeon, N. Y , and aro superb specimens of mechan ical skill. The painting and especially the schroll work, take the shine out of anything we have seen in that line. They lie on the sidling, opposite the east end of the Columbia Bridge. =CCM JOIIN or I - cum—lt affords us great pleasure to be able to stilt° positively, that the report of the death of our old friend William C. Tobcy, E.q., was incorrect. Ho was revelling in the Halls or the Montezuman, and the public may count upon a rich treat, in the perusal of a history of the war iu Mexico. from his graphic and highly popular pen. We congaatulate his friends everywhere.

VOX , tb.l7nitell States Cassette FROM TOBIN'S KNAPSACK. LA EACANTADA, sth September, 1897 Mr. Delta—The nights aro horribly cold here.— I wish you could send me ou a wife or en extra blanket. Why is it so frigid 7 They say we're 30 or 40,000 feet (more or less, nearer Heaven than you in the Crescent City. If so, we should be warmer. Perhaps it's because we're the same die. lance farther off from the other establishment. Every thing is very dull—no excitement—lots of rumors from Scott's army—a little guerrilla pray lice, such as murdering an American or two, and shooting down a few greasers in return. We have. had some small speculation, too, in the slate venison line which has brought about a melancholy fend between the Texans and the gentlemen cows. It seems some Texans shot two bulls lately, and help ed themselves to as much of the venison es they pleased. Next day, a brother of the departed bulls looked savage at a Texan, when the latter put five bullets into him, and tumbled him. The hunter thou dismounted, tied his horse to a bush, and ap proached his game to finish, before bagging him; but 3lr. Bull was playing 'possum; he jumped up, charged the Texan, and brake his back ; we buried him a few days aster: sz -_cross a balance of a. bull I in favor of the Tema :a. 3.1.. j. C . :mm.4lM has re. 1 signed; you will so.,:t ssz aim to New Orleans, on Ms Way to Vera Cues- We are constantly out I scouting but can see nothing. There are plenty of! small plundering parties ranging about, but too well acquainted with the country to be caught. Speak. I ing of shooting cattle , there has been a very plync. 1 ful piece of work of that sort in the North Carolina I regiment. Cub Payne, of that ilk, the other day, conceived and brought forth a horse, and installed I hint near his own quarter., for the purpose of pun. 1 ishing refractory soldiers. It was not exactly the 1 Tt ojan horse, but, like it, was also built of wood, . and the back-bone of the Colonel's charger was so sharp, particularly the part adjacent to the rider's postemities, that the boys baptized it by the name of la drug ziandi used at home for poisoning rats. On the night of its instalment, fity or sixty men of dif iferent regiments assembled, demolished the animal, and gave him a Christian build', placing his head l on a pole, so nearly in the shape of a cross, that the Mexican passersdiy, supposing that a huntan being had been murdered and buried there, paid the ghost of time horse the same religious respect usually paid by thorn to the cool of a Christian in the same fir. 'Me. Colonel, however, was not to he bluffed off.— When lie di 'covered his firstborn defunct, he brought out its twin brother and erected him. The men collected again in large numbers to tear him down, but Col. Payne was prepared; he odered them to halt, when near his quarters; instead or which they fell back, and, utter reported orders to halt, tie fired amongst them whilst still retreating— some say advancing—and shot one of his own people through the body, and a Virginian through the hand. The two wounded men were expelled from their respective 'regiments in disgrace; but the North Carolina man would not stand it; he died before morning, and was buried without the honors of war. The men subscribed $3OO, and handed it to the Virginian before he left camp.— 1 Two young officers were also oismissed from the service on account of the same scrape. I give you the tile as I heard it: I was absent on a scout at the time. My own opinion of the disgraceful trans. action is that the perpetration of the wooden horse smacked too much of the cuarter.deek; but still men can have greviances redressed without taking I the law into their own hands. While I'm at the North Careliniasu+, please advise the young ladies of that State to be more careful about it riling their love•leticre to careless fellows, who drop them and leave them lying about. 1 have just picked up a very soft one on the paradise ground, addressed to Mr. Joseph M. F"—, Capt. Shire's Company, North Carolina Regiment ; but 1 shan't tell Miss Jullita's name. Here's the wind. ing up of it: / I by reeding your few Ime. you have many trobele to go therm and n hen you mkt 0b.., rev; Itnee )00 And that lam teubeld too 2. when you are one your bud for me a woepmg flu think that I am fast a arerol itg but ,1:.011 think that th o. to Iron 3W find that I am weelong too J. to think that you are gone edlure Casing canons & gone & if a but it hits you I know 'nu can no more return bit if this shoal our fortune bee & you conic hear ne more 1 hope ne'll meet on yonder shore wheat we tad! part no more fir about hear menny sues t ore and tummy dill See um but among them alt I cant lie pleeel like I was pleeet tent) rhea think :tliss Julina ought to fry, roast, baste and lambaste Mr. F—y, for making such a baste of Ilium-If as to lose her sweet epistle. And talking of basting., I give you a sketch of a woo/ling. I hap. petted to be at Gen. Wool's quarters I tat week on business, when a very promising specimen came up and touched his cap. Gen. W. said "Coma in, sir, conic in: I hero soma private business with you." I was about to leave; but he told me to re main. So I heard the following dialogue : " Well, sir, yon were sprung last night; yon were tight, sir." I did not sac the individual's face, as there wee nn looking-glass in the tent; but he answered %cry readily, "I acknowledge the corn, General, I teas a sheet or two in the wind." " You ought to be ashamed of yourself, air; you ought to be ashamed." "So I am, General." "Well, air, never let me catch you so again." "'Pon my honor, General, next time keep as far off from you as I can." " Well, sir, good evening. Don't go to Saltillo any more." I met the acme parties a row dap , after, and Gen. W. observed, "I hope you've not been in Saltillo, sir, since I saw you last." "No, sir, but I wish to go in to-trturrow." "You can't go in—you can't go in." "Why not, General I" "Because you got tight in there last time." "1 bog your pardon, sir, I did no soca thing." "Why you acknowledged it yourself, sir." "I ask pardon, I acknowledged being a shoot or two in the wind; but net in town." " Where then, sir?" "In your own camp, up there among the Vir ginians." .4 Was A there, sir ?" . 4 It was no where else, General." .4 Go to the devil, or to town, whenever you want." So I have been going in as usual ever since. The Mississippians have the credit of being the steadiest and most exemplary regiment in the ser vice. At one of the last meetings of their too-total society, many of the members delivered themselves of their experience—as the Methodists in class meeting term such commodities—one of the inter esting individuals wound up by saying," You can't consare, jintlemen, Oat a divil for the dhrink I seas afore I jined yea. I used to dhrive a jingle betune Dublin and Dunleary, afore them railroads (bad luck to 'cot) was invented, and may I never, if I did'nt often get up of a morning, without the price of the oats for the ould mare and the sketch of whiskey for myself; so I had to toss up which of us id go widout ; but one thing I can say, gentle men, wid a clanc breast, whinever the ould mare won, by Ja—s, I never dialed her out of the oats." G. IL T. I'. S. Eighteen Texan Rangers and two Lieu tenants, all of Capt. Taylor's company, deserted last night. From tlie ➢nitimore American Ricirmoxo, Va., Oct. 12, 10, A. 31 Passengers on board the steamer Alabama, at New Oilcans, from Vera Cruz and Tampion, give some additional information respecting Gen. Scott's A r my. Capt. Vanstavoren arrived in the Alabama, in company with Major Capers, Government saltier at Tampuco, as bearer of despatches to the Gov verninent from Col. Gates. Major Capers has copies of letters to merchants in Tampico received by the British express, giving semi-official accounts of the capture of the city of Mexico. Santa Anna marched out of the city on the 13th uft„ at the head of 10,000 men and twenly.five pieces of can i non, to Gaudaloupe, and was expected soon to re turn to Oajadeka. No further immediate moles tation from him was anticipated. Our entire loss from the sth to the 13th was 25 officers killed, 47 wounded; 490 men killed end wounded at the battle of Chapoltcpse. On the 13th Gen. Scott brought forty pieces of cannon to bear upon the beiglits of Chapultepcc, which soon ren dered them untenable by the enemy. On the afternoon of the 14th he sent 1500 men into the city who took possession of the citadel after some serious opposition from the rabble, who attacked the rear, wounding a great number. On the 13th the women of the city demanded muskets of &nits Anna, which he was unable to turni+h them. The letters make no mention of the resignation of Santa Anna, and Captuirt Vanstavoren discredits the statement altogether. Gen.. Worth, Pillow and Smith are safe. Gen• Worth had been appointed by Gen. Scott, Governor of the City of :%lexico. The steamer Fashion was entering the harbor of Tampico an the Alabama left. ANOTSIER Accou NT.—Tlic New Orleans La Protria has a different version of the news, which is obtained from Mexican sources, and the accuracy of tt Ilia may well be questioned. It is to this effect, as stated in the Patriot: It would appear that the American troops after taking the City of Mexico, had numerous severe conflicts with the almost innumurable swarm of Leperos, who inhabited and surrounded the Capital —that the former finally became so annoying arid destructive that they obtained advantage of the American troops, who were finally under the neces sity of retiring from the city. It is further stated that Santa Anna has left his quarters at Gaudaloupe, and returned to the capital at the head of an army of ten thousand regular troops, and that fighting had been resumed and was still going on desperately at the last accounts. The rumor of Santa Ann's resignation is confirmed by these accounts, but the Mexican people were nut disposed to receive it, and again place him at the head of the army. General Ilea is said to have gotten full possession of Puebla, but that the Americans were pouring a deadly fire upon the troops from the surrounding heights commanding the town. Major Capers came passenger in the steamer Alabama, which arrived at New Orleans on the 4th, from Vera Cruz. He is fully of oppnion that the brave and gallant General Worth still survives, but has nn doubt of his having been wounded. He ' thinks the story of the explosion of a bomb, which was said to have caused the loss of a large number of liv e s, and among them the life oft Gen. Worth, is a Mexican fabrication. Generals Pillow and Smith arc believed to have been killed. The English accounts received by the Alabama, states that the Americans lost 470 killed of their rank and file, besides:l7 officers killed and wound ed. The total number of wounded supposed to be about 1,000 ; while the killed and wounded of the .Mexicans is said to be near:l,ooo, besides a large number of prisoners. There no news yet from Cen. Scott's army. The presumption is, that his despatches have been cut off between Mexico and Puebla. The anxiety to bear from him is painfully exciting. Further accounts do not confirm La Pratria's version of the news. A num" tc NEED.—An instance of animal sagacity and humanity, unequalled in our remem brance, took place before our door on Saturday.— An unfortunate dog, in order to make sport for somc fools, had a pan tied to his tail, and wee set off on his travels towards Galt. He reached time village utterly exhausted, and lay down before the steps of Mr. Young's tavern, eyeing most anxious. ly, the horrid annoyance hung behind him, but unable to move a step further, or rid himself of the torment. Another dog, a Scotch eolly, came up at the time, and seeing the distress of hie crony, laid himself down gently beside him, and gaining his confidence by a few carcases, proceeded to gnaw the string by which the noisy appendage was at tached to his friend's tail, and by about a quarter of an hour's exertion, severed the cord, and started to his legs, with the pan banging from the string in hie month, and after a few joyful carers around his friend, departed on his travels, io the highest glee at his suecess.—Galt Reporter. Some days ■ince, a man named itlavin Whatley, was killed, in Russell county, Alabama, by one Hugh McLean, when in a quarrel about the divis ion of soma old clothes given them. From the National Intelllgencer ANOTHER LETTER FROM GENERAL TAYLOP. RYA-A. Trve To Tut PRESIDENCY.—We have received from Dr. Bronson, the gentleman to whom it was addres sed, a copy of the following letter from Gen. Tay. lor, with request for its insertion in the Intelligencer request which we cheerfully and readily com ply with : HF.ADQUARTERS ARMY OP OCCUPATION, (;atop near Monterey, Aug. 10,1647. Slit—Your letter of 17th ultimo, requesting of me an exposition of my views on the questions of national policy now at issue between the political parties of the United States, hus duly resched me. I must take occasion to say that many of my letters, addressed to gentlemen in the United States in answer to similar inquiries, have already been made public, and I had greatly hoped that all per. sons interested had, by this time, obtained from them a sufficiently accurate knowledge of my views and desires in relation to this subject. As it ap. pears, however, that such is not the case, I deem it proper, in reply to your letter, distinctly to repeat that I am not before the people of the United States a candidate for the Presidency. It is my great desire to return at the close of this war to the discharge of those professional duties and to the enjoyment of those domestic pursuits from which I was called at its commencement, and for which my tastes and education best fit me. I deem it but due to candor to stale, at the same tine, - that, if I were called to the Presidential chair by the general voice of the people, without regard to their political differences, I should deem it to be my duty to accept the office. But while I freely vow attachment to the administrative policy of our early Presidents, I desire it to be understood that I cannot submit, even in thus accepting, it to the exaction of any other pledges as to the course I should pursue than that of discharging its tun• ctions to the best of my ability, and strictly in accordance with the requirements of the cunstitu• Lion. I have thus given you the circumstances under which only can I be induced to accept the high and responsible office of the President of the United States. I need hardly add that I cannot in any rase permit myself to be brought before the people exclusively by any of the political parties that now so unfortunately divide our country, as their can didate for this office. It affords me great pleasure, in conclusion, fully to concur with you in your high and just estimate of the virtues, both of head and heart, of the dis. tinguished citizens [Messrs.Clay, Webster, Adams, McDu'lie, and Calhoun) mentioned in your letter, I have never yet exercised the privilege of voting; but had I been called upon at the last Presidential election to do so, I should most certainly have cast my vote for Mr. Clay. I am sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant. Z. TAYLOR, Major General United States Army. F. S. Bronson, M. Ti, Charleston, S. C. TIM GOLD ROOM IN WINDSOR CASTLR.—The whole collection of what is called the Gold Room at Windsor Castle is valued at twelve millions of dot. (liars: There are glass cases like a silversmith's shop, and behind the glass are the principal articles. There is a dinner service of silver gilt of the most gorgeous kind, presented by the merchants of Liv. crpool, to the late William the Fourth, long before he was king, in reward for his advocacy of the slave trade: with the inscription telling the tale. There is a salver of immense size, made from the gold snuff boxes alone, of George the Fourth,—the lids and instriptions curiously preserved on the sur face is a kind of mosaic of gold; its SSllie is fay thousand dollars. Nell Gwynn's bellows—the Iran. I dice, nozzles, &c. of gold I—tbe golden peacock, inlaid with diamonds, arid rubies from Dellili—not as large as a pheasant, but valued at one hun dred and fifty thousand dollars; the footstool of Tippoo Seib, a solid gold lion with chrystal eyes, the value of its gold alone seventy thousand dollars; George the Fourth's celebrated golden candelabra for a dinner table, valued at fifty thousand dollars, so heavy that two men arc required to lift each. Piles upon piles of golden plates, sufficient to dine wo hundred and fifty persons, with ample changes. There are a 140 dozen each of gold knives and forks of various patterns, and 141 dozen each of I geld table and tea spoons, aff arranged in the roost perfect o:der, and glass cases on tables in the middle of the room filled with gorgeous gold. From the contemplation of all this memory only carries away I a confused idea of riches, such as must have cost poor underground laborers, lives of toil, and sweat, and pain, to procure. A simple fact in connection with this gorgeous display will serve to illustrate its worth to one of its royal possessors, Gcoege the Fourth, whose sense of taste became so vitiated that although his meat was set before him in golden dishes ire was obliged to season it with asalcetida to make it anything but tasteless. GRADUAL RISE OF NLWFOUS DLALD FROM Tat SEA. —lt is a fact worthy of notice, that the whole of Conception Bay, very probably the whole island is rising out of the ocean at a very considerable rate which promises, at no very distant day, materially to affect, If not to render useless, many of the best harbors we have now on the coast. At Port de Grave a series of observations have been made, which undeniably prove the rapid displacement of the sea-level in the vicinity. Several large flat rocks over which schooners might pass some thir ty or forty years ago with the greatest facility, are now approaching the surface, the water is scarcely navigable for a skid: At a place called the Cosh, at the head of Bay Roberts, upwards of a mile from the sea-shore and at several feet above its level, covered with five or six feet of vegetable mould, there is a perfect beach, the stones being rounded, of a modern alze,and in all respects simi lar to those now found in the adjacent land-washes. A writer in the New York Journal of Commerce proposes a Ship Canal from the Hudson river to the Lakes. He says, by enlarging the Northern Ca. nal from Whitehall to Troy, to the site on the Canadian Canals, (say 45 feet Lock,) New York would hare a Ship Canal to Chicago, and vessels, without discharging, could bring 4000 bbls. or 17,000 bushels of wheat or corn, in the same order and condition, as when first shipped at the mill or warebouise, in the Wed. RusAwAy Wtve,, &c.—The elopement from Can ton, Massachusetts, has caused no little excitement in that neighborhood. The young man, James Bennett, is an Englishman of good education, who has been engaged for a year past in Kinsley's iron works. For some time he boarded in the family of his uncle John Bennett, but the latter thinking he observed to much freedom of manners between his young wife and nephew, for bid him his house, and he took up his abode in an other family. On Wednesday last, the husband suspecting, or having been informed, that things were not right, went to the house in the afternoon, and found, after some search, the young man con cealed in his wife's bedroom, rolled up in a coverlid. This was to his jealous mind confirmation strong as proofs from holy writ. lie seized a carving knife, and the young man fled, leaving his hat behind, as Joseph did his coat, though for a different reason. Ire ran towards the river, his uncle running after him, and like to have shared the fete of Absalom, for his hair caught in the branches of a tree on the river's bank. He disentangled his hair, swam the stream, and his uncle returned to his wife. Its work at the forge required his attention, he deferred further proceedings till evening. Meanwhile his wife and her paramour fled, she taking one child and leaving two behind her. Mrs. 13ennett is a very preposses. sing young woman, and the fact that the young man has been looked upon as intelligent beyond mediocrity, warrants the belief that her powers of persuasion are considerable. The outraged MIS. band is an estimable man, and thus len with two boys his situation is not to be envied. This is the second elopement from Canton this summer. “JENSY KiSSED ME. •• —ln the notice of Lehigh Hunt's "Men, 'Women and Books,” is the follow. ing exquisite rondcau, which has, says the reviewer besides its own excellence, the additional merit of being the offspring of a real impulse, and of ohm. ieling the loving audacity of one of the moat charm. ing of women : '•Jenny kissed me when we met.

Sold only at No. 86, Baltimore Street, Baltimore, by the subscriber, hay ing the exclusive right to sell them in the States of Maryland, Virginia, District of Columbia and all Pennsylvania west of the Susquehanna river. This celebrated Stove has now a character which no other has ever attained, and has been often enough and long enough tried to warrant the dec laration that it is the best Cooking Stove in Ameri. ca, and should any doubt it I am ready to test it ' with any other stove, either as a fuel saver, or corn. plete operator. It has never been surpassed, if ever equalled, and I have any amount of testimony sub stuntiating the assertion.

One of the Partners of the concern (who selects the Teas) learned this difficult business of thy Chi. nese themselves, having resided among them many years, at Canton, engaged in the Tea trade.
