Ihe first was made - at the Great Westero Iron \Yolks, ned in New Yot k and Roston,) on the Allegheny river, 40 miles above Pittsburg. 'rids company made QOO tons in 1845, for Madison, Intl. and continued to make it till about two months since, when the COIN/ally failed, and the winks were bought by Mr. Pray, of Bos ton, who ouw.carries them on. The next company that made Railroad Iron, was the Mount Savage iron Company, 9 miles from Cumberland in Maryland. Th ,, se works Nett into operation in 1514. It is this compaity which had contracted to supply the lron for the Fall River and Taunton Railroad—But has failed to do so, and (Its delayed the completion of dint road. It was a specimen of the Mount Sat age Iron which extorted a boast on the flour of the House the other day, from one of the Pennsylvania.; Locofocos, that as good an article could be manulactured here lot- $24 a tun. as coul d be procured from Englund ; and a res:tonse from Mr. Grinnell that he would take several thou sand tons at that price. These (the Mount Savage ) were built with capital but owed in London by S. et wariwout who is a considerable stockholder. The Great Westara, or Brady's Bend Iron Works are now completing contracts for Railroad Iron. The last account from the furtii.ce, which has just been nut in blast, was most favorable.

TIIE DUEL •ENDED.---For several Jays there has been much anxiety to as cc, taiu the result of a (uel between Mr. Clinginan of North Carlina, and Mr. Yancey, of Alabama, members of the U. S. House of Representatives, originating in some remarks applied to the former by the latter in a speech made by hint week before last on the Texas quesion. The Baltimore American Repo)lican gives the following result of the matter. it says, two gentlemen with their seconds and other friends, were in this city sotne days adjustidg the preliminas ries ; and yesterday morning having brought their courage to the, " sticking point," started off for Beltsville, Ott the Washington railroad" the principals in hacks, and the seconds and others in a sprint railroad car, chartered at as ex pense of $5O. Arrived there, all the necessary " fixins" for a duel were made, with due and imposing ceremony, accor ding to the " code of honor"—the princi pals were assigned their stations, the se conds took theirs—and we presume also the surgeons—when the word to fire was given and immediately obeyed, fortunate ly without either being shot or at all inju red. The friends of the parties then interfered, and a reconciliation was ea,ils elircted--both thegentlemen shook hands, made friends, and left the field of battle covered all over with honor and glory. Verily, " men are but children of a larger growth." From the Baltimore American. Search for lost Treasure. A vessel belonging to a company °igen denten of this city, fully equipped with a diving bell, sub-marine armor, and effi cient hands to utak them under the su perintendence of a practical engineer, recently felt this port for the Ishvid of Margarita, near Cumana for the purpose of recovering the military chest and other treastires ai►d stores lost by the fi►under mng of the Spanish 80 gun ship "San Pe dro de Alcantaro." The San Pr.dro was one of a large fleet of ships-uf•wat and transports %%Inch sail. ed from Cadiz. early in 1615, with an army of 15,000 men to reconquer the re• vatted Provinces of the Spanish Main.— Being the Admiral's ship and the largest in the Squadron, to her was intrusted all she treasure and military stores necessary fur an exposition of such magnitude. The luss of this ship occurred in 1815, at noon day, within a league of the Island, and in 1011 fathoms of water. To this severe calamity is to lie attributed the failure of the Spanish arms under Mort!'" and the subsequent independence of the South American Republics. Since 11315 the tt rerk has qAietly %lum bered at the bottom of the sea, its wherea bouts known only to the fishermen of the coast. The hull lies in ten and a half fathoms of water, on •a hard and sandy bottom between the Island of Nlargarita anti the inain land. The .nei g hborie g sea is ordinarily smooth, and seldom agitaed, Authentic accounts state that site remain,: to the same position in which she 1% ent down. Her decks are partially fallen in, owing, it is supposed, to the weight of her armament, and the action of the worms on her wood, work. The present expedition has a permit from the Venezuelan Government to re cover all the loot treasure and store?, uith the sole condition of paying into the Trea sury of the Republic five per cent. on all ecti vet ed.

So great was the public ft Ming against Santa Anna, that his portraits which hung on the walls of the town house were taken down and dragged through the streets--they also threw down his statue, and proceeding to the Pantheon of St. Fernando, where the leg which Santa Anna lost in the battle with the French, was buried, they des troyed the monument which contained it, and the leg was dragged forth and kicked through the town. At the last accounts Santa Anna was at Queretaro, at the head olabout 3000 troops--but they were deser ting him daily, and it was thought that he could nut possibly escape.

D. IeKINIBALL, Easthampton, Dec. SI, 1844, Fatal Steaniboat Accident. OR Saturday night, the 28th ult., about eleven o'clock, the steamboat Capitol, bound from Pittsburg to St. Louis, was destroyed by fire at St. Mary's Landing, about seventy miles below St. Louis.— • The fire originated about midway of the boilers, probably from some defect in the furnaces, and spread with astonishing rapidity. The alarm was instantly given, and the passengers, most of whom were asleep, %,ith the exception of three, succeeded in making their escape. The flames spread upwards and through the cabin, so swiftly that several of those in the cabin effected their escape by letting themselves down on the after guards. The wind was blow ing a strono ' breeze from the buW to the stern, which drove the flames aft. A DALRYMPLE, his wile, a son (Master Joseph 1).) a daughter, a young lady, were passengers on board. The hither and his son occupied a state room in the gentlematis' cabin-•-the mother and daughter a room in the ladies' cabin. From the best accounts we can gather, it is must probable Mr. DALRYMPLE and his son, perished in the state room. They loot been awakened by the Captain, and this iti the fast that is Certainly known of them. Mrs. D. and her daughter reached the cabin, when the toothier fainted and , fell; the flames rushing in, the daughter ' had barely time "to save herlife, by letting herself down on the after guard. Thus, the lather, mother and son, it is believed, perished in the flumes. 111 x.

Tim Onvouix QuesTrox.--The Wash ington correspondent of the New York commercial says Oka there is nut the leatt doubt that Congress will pass an act extending the jurisdiction of the United States Over the Oregon territory, giving it a territorial government, and establishing a military post for the protection of set tlers. Two or three NVliiAs in the Senate will go fur the measure; and nearly all the Locurocos in both houses---no matter how the pending negotiatort may end, or whether it end or not. The British Go' - eminent after tile late vote 'mid debate in the Senate, will see that we are in earnest, aid that there must tither be a camprom• ise o r a collision. There is no reason why it should not be the former." The writer adds-- , Cleat Britain will not fight about Oregon, though she may be willing to keep it. When she determines to take Cuba, she will be prepared for a ten years' war, to the mean time she is preparing her steam navy." Prom the Pittsburg Gazette of Monday. Glorious VAIL:Wry!

NV. Darr.— The Supreme, Court having disappointed the expectations of the party, it has been suggested by some of the legal minds" that the expense, should properly fall upon the judges of that body. The Journal continues;— The matter should be brought before Congress at an early day or Mr. Tread well might carry it up by writ of error be• fore the Female Dorr Liberation Society. Alter all, this is but another illustration of the evils of departure from first princi ples. The purchase of powder for any Durrite use was against the well settled usages of the party. It should have been stolen, and then there would have been no difficulty abbot the payment." A SENATOR IN TROUBLE,• -The Hon. Jacob C.
