New Hampshire Election.
The result of the election is claimed as an
anti-Nebraska triumph. That question has
undoubedly had much weight in the election,
though the Democrats persisted in rejecting it
as a test. Gen. Pierce's own Ward, in Con
cord, gave seventy Whig majority. The Whigs
have so far gained fifty representatives in the
State Legislature. The Democratic majority
last year was eighty-nine. Many strong De
mocratic towns are coming in Whig. It is pro
bable, however, that the Democrats will have
a small majority in the Legislature. Mr. Ba.
ker will have two thousand five hundred ma
jority for Governor, being a Democratic loss
of eight thousand as compared with last year.

The Steamer Black Warrior.
A sficeind Cabinet Message was despatch•
ed from Washingtou to Madrid, on Friday
evening, avail despatches to oar Minister (Mr.
Sonle,) bearing on the case of the "Black War
The important message of the President on
the subject, with detail you will find as follows:
This vessel touched at Havana on the 28th
ult., nod was seived by the authorities there
and detained, on account of some informality
in her ship papers. This has given rise to
great excitement; nud representations were im•
mediately made to our Government. The
President, on Wednesday last, sent in to Con.
gress the following important Message on the
subject—and has despatched, or is about to
desdatch, a vessel of war to Spain to demand
To the House of Representatives:
In compliance with the resolution of the
House of Representatives of the 10th inst., I
herewith transmit a report of the Secretary of
State, containing all the information received
at the Department relative to the seizure of the
Black Warrior at Havana on the 28th ult.
There have been in the course of a few years
past, many other instances of aggression upon
our commerce, violations of the rights of Amer
ican citizens, and insults to the national flag,
by the Spanish authorities in Cuba, and all at
tempts to obtain redress have led to protracted,
and, as
. yet, fruitless negotiations.
The documents in these cases are volumin•
ous, and, when prepared, will be sent to Con
gress. Those now transmitted relate excln.
sively to the seizure of the Blabk Warrior, and
present so clear a case of wrong that it would
be reasonable to expect full indemnity there
for as soon as this unjustifiable and offensive
conduct shall be made known to her Catholic
Majesty's Government; but similar expecte
tions in other cases have nut been realized.
The offending party is at our door with large
powers for aggression, but none is alleged for
reparation. The course of redress is in anoth
er hemisphere, and the answer to our just com
plaints made to the Home Government are but
the repetition of excuses rendered by inferior
officials to their superiors, in reply to represen
tations of misconduct. The peculiar situation
of the partieshas undoubtedly much aggravated
the annoyances and injune which our eiti
zents have suffered from the Cuban authori
ties. Spain does nett seem to appreciate, to its
full extent l her responsibility fur the conduct
of these authorities. In giving very extraordi
nary powers to them she owes in to justice,
and her friendly relations with this government,
to guard with vigilance against the exorbitant
exerciss of these powers, and in case of injury
provide for prompt redress.
I have already taken measures to present to
, the government of Spain the wanton injustice
of the Cuban authorities in the detention and
seizure of the Black Warrior, and to demand
indemnity for the injury that has thereby been
done to our citizens.
In view of the position of the Island of Cuba,
its proximity to our coast, rend the relations it
must ever bear to out commercial and other
interests, it is in vain to expect that a series of
unfriendly acts, infringing upon commercial
rights, and the adoption of policy threatening
the honor and security of these States, can long
exist with peaceful relations.
In case the measures taken for the amicable
adjustment of our difficulties with Spain should,
unfortunately, fail, I shall not hesitate to use
the uuthority and means which Congress may
grant to ensure the observance of just rights,
to abtain redress fur injuries received, tend to
vindicate the honor of our flag. _ _ _
In anticipation of that contingency, which I
earnestly hope may not arrive, I suggest to
Congress the propriety of authorising such pro.
visional measures as the exigency may seem
to demand.

Horrible Railroad Accident and Loss of
Terrible smash yr on the Central Railroad,
near Syracuse—A Freight Train Demolish
.Angi!ieer and another person killed
—Several &idly wounded.
A dreadful accident happened on the New
York Central Railroad at about ten o'clock on
the evening of the 22d inst., the particulars of
which we gathered from a gentleman who was
a passenger on the train at the time.
The Express train coming east when about
nine miles west of Syracuse, in consequence of
the brakeman turning off the wrong switch,
came in collision with a freight train, on the
other track.
The shock was tremendous and the effects
appalling. The baggage car of the Express
train was flung over on one side—the Income.
five demolishing one of the freight cars, literal
ly bounded up on those farther ahead, and it
remained in that position when last seen.
The first shock of the concussion sent the
engineer headlong through the passenger car
nearest the engine. He was terribly mangled.
The poor fellow cried almost immed iately,shriek.
ing—"For God's sake, save me I Save me I
Save met" His name is Coleman, and is said
to have resided in Rochester, where he has a
family. The fireman was very badly hurt, but
may recover. There were other persons on
the engine and tender, but they jumped off,
and escaped with slight bruises. r In the freight
train, there was a man asleep—an Indian it is
said---who was instantly killed. His body was
literally meshed to a jelly, and had to be lifted
piece-meal from amongst the rubbish.
The scene is reported to have been one of the
most painful imaginable- There were about
three hundred passengers in the train coming
East, a majority of whom were ladies.
On experiencing the first shock, a scream of
terror was raised, the passengers all springing
spontaneously from their seats, and springing
frantically towards the doors. "Sit down !
sit down ! and you will ho safe I" some gentle.
man shouted and not in vain ! The panic was
over in a moment, and our informant assures
us, not one of the persons was materially in
jured; but their escape, under the circumstan
ces, ho says, was extraordinary.
Workmen were engaged, during the night,
clearign off the wreck and making arrange
ments for burying the dead.
The train coming east consisted of five pas.
sender cars, and at the time of the collision, it
was supposed to be going at the rate of thirty
miles an hour. MI the platforms were smash
ed and many of the windows stove in, but
apart from this, no injury was sustained.—
Great indignation is expressed in reference to
the switchman, of whose carelessness this
shocking affair is the result. As he was not
seen alter the collision, it is supposed he has
run off; to escape arrest...W. I. Elyre4s.

By the steamer California, and the attention
of Purser Davis, wo learn that the inhabitants
of Acapulco and of all that portion of Mexico,
were in a great state of excitement in cense
queuce of a revolution which had recently bro
ken out among them.
It appears that the inhabitants of this (Gner
rero) and some of the bordering States, have
taken arms under (ten. Alverez,
and declar
ing themsehtes (according to' the fashion of the
day) free and independent, are ready to en
force it if necessary. No positive engagement
has occurred between the opposing parties, but
it was said by some that a skirmish had taken
place in the plain nt Chilptintsingo, where San
ta Anna had 2000 men under arms.
At Acapulco, the Comandante and other in
fluential men were in custody or had fled, no
neutrality being recognized. The fort itself
was in the hands of Alvarez's party and for
the time being, at least, the entire authority in
town has changed bands. Two schooners had
been chartered and armed by Santa Anna, and
were daily expected at Acapulco, for the pur
pose of blockading the harbor, cutting off sup
plies and intimidating the inhabitants.
Provisions unusually high and laborers were
scarce, because a large majority of laboring
men had fled to the mountains and the country
people hesitated to come in with supplies, fear
mg to be involed in the war. Santa Anna
had despatched a large force of veterans to
wards Acapulco, while Alvarez with his moun
tain men was prepared to arrest their progress
along this difficult road and prevent their en
try into town. An engagement was anticipa
ted in the course of a day or two.
NEW Onr,E.txs, March 13.--The Picayune
has receved tiles of letters and papers from the
city of Mexico up the Bth inst.
The revolutionary movement at Acapulco
was becoming more formidable than ever—hav
ing rapidly spread throughout that portion of
the country, notwithstanding the efforts of the
government to suppress it, and arrest the lead
Gen. Alvarez, who is in command of the re
volutionary forces, still retains possession of
the fort, and is fortifying other positions.
Gen. Alvarez has thus fur been very success
ful in preventing the forces of Santa Anna from
marching on Acapulco.
The mountain forces raised by Gen. Alvar
ez, remain faithful to their leader, and form a
very powerful army. Alvarez is a good sold
ier, and much beloved. lie is of pure Indian
extraction, and possesses great wealth and in
fluence. He dwells in the mountains around
Acapulco, and is well acquainted with every
pass .d position.
In addition to the two thousand troops sent
by Stulta Anna to oppose him, a great number
of which were reported by previous advices to
have deserted,)an additional force of two thou.
sand men have been raised and sent to Brazos.
Should this force not be found sufficient to
quell the insurrection, is is the intention of
Santa Anna to increase the number to ten or
twelve thousand. PreparaticMs for their de
parture had already been made.
Two schooners had been sent by Santa An
na to blockade the port of Acapulco, and at
last advices they had arrived at their destina
tion and put the port under blockade.
It was reported that the foreign ministers had
denounced the new navigation act of reciproci
ty, which was generally received with disgust.
Rumors were current at the departure of the

Extract of a letter from Superintendent
Superintendent BEALE writes under date of
January 25, and dates from the Tejon (Toy.
hone) Indian Reserve.
"There is some confusion here about the
name of this Pass. It is precisely in the lati
tude and longitude of Walker's Pam on Fre
mont's map; but it is called Tejon (Tay-hone)
here. It is a very . excellent one, and known
to the Mexicans since their settlement in Cali
fornia. Bet there is another one ten miles
north called by the Indians Ti-kick.peli, which
I have explored, and find it most beautiful. It
is filled watt gigantic oalcs, and contains about
(twenty thousand acres of perfectly level land,
and leads through the Sierra Nevada from a
point directly opposite Kern Lake, in the Tu.
lare valley, to the Great Basin on the other
side. I should not be surprised if it should
prove to be the best Pass in the Sierra Neva
da. I have a pack-train of one hundred mules
bringing wheat, (for the reservation.) They
carry three hundred pounds each animal, and
so far have not been delayed but one day by
snow, though they cross the Sierra each time
they take a load, and are now on their twenti
eth trip, and have kept their flesh very well on
what they find in the gap. We have been very
busy with our farming wotk, and have plough.
ed up two thousand nerd in one field, and
sown it in wheat, and shall plant as nanny more
in corn—all the work done by naked "Digger
Indians." of whom I have about two thousand
on the reserve, and sleep in the middle of them
in as much security as it I was in the Capital
at Washington. We soon expect Fremont."
These naked "Digger Indians," are thus de
scribed by Fremont: "They live in the Great
'Basin, and exhibit human nature in its lowest
' form and in its most elementary state; disper
sed in single fatuities; Without fire-nrms; eat.
'log seeds and insects; digging roots, (and
' hence their name;) a rabbit the hirgest ani
' mal in their desert; their greatest skill to snare
'it. The wild sage is their largest wood, some
' times six or eight feet high and a foot in dim
' meter; and this serves for building a shelter,
'for some sort of covering for the feet and legs
'in the extreme cold, and shelters the rabbits.
'All other Indians living in communities re
'pulse the miserable Digger." Such are the
people whom the magic touch of BEALE has
collected into a community, converted into far.

bread when he arrives among them in their

Die most estraordinarg discovery in the World
is the Great Arabian _Remaly for Man
, and Beast.
EVERY FAMILY should at once procure a
bottle of the great Arabian remedy for man
and beast, called H. 0. FARRELL'S ARA
BIAN LINIMENT. It allays the most intense
pains in n few minutes, restores the eynovial
fluid or joint water, and thus cures stiff joints;
it penetrates the flesh to the bone, relaxes con•
traeted cords, cats rheumatism and palsied
limbs of twenty years' standing; also tumors,
swelled neck, enlargement of the glands, and
is the best medicine for ailments of cattle ever
discovered, curing sweeny, spaying, splint, and
nll diseases which require an external applies.
Sun Pain If 10 years' all:luting cured by
IL G. Parreds Arabian Liniment,
Mr. H. G. Farrell.—Dery sir: I had been
afflicted with the "Sun Pain" for the last ten
years, and could never get relief except by
bleeding; but by the use of H. G. Farrell's Ara
hiss Liniment, applied over the temples about
three or four times a day, it was entirely remo•
red, and I have felt nothing of it since. I went
into the stable one night, to apply it to a horse's
sore leg, and being very lame he stumbled and
fell against my legs, crushing and bruising
them on badly that they turned black as my
hat, rendering them powerless. I applied your
Liniment, and was well enough in a few days
to go about again as tvuul. I also crushed
my finger in a shocking manner, by letting a
back log fall upon it; your Liniment soon heal
ed it up, though. JOHN B. WGEE.
La ga'lle precinct, Peoria co., Feb,
F,sg. Barker, qf New Canton, 111.. says :1
Mr. H. G. Farrell's Artesian LiniAnt has
cured some bad cases here, which every other
remedy had failed in; one was a white swelling
and contracted cords in the leg of a boy twelve
years old. The log had withered away, and
was so contracted that he bad no use of it.—
Three doctors had tried their skill upon it in
vain, nod he was fast sinking to the grave,
when the boy's father was induced to try IT. 0.
Farrell's Arabian Liniment. Before the first
bottle was steed up he came to Mr. B.'s store,
and the first words he said were, "Mr. Baster,
I want all that Liniment you have in the store;
the one bottle 1 got did my boy more good
than all that 1 al ever been done before." That
boy is now well and hearty, and has free use

burns and swellings.
Look out for Counterfeits!
The public are cautioned against another
counterfeit, which has lately made its appear.
nce, called W. B. Farrell's Arabian Liniment,
the most dangerous of all the counterfeits, be
cause his having the 'name of Farrell, many
will buy it in good faith, without the knowledge
that n counterfeit exists, and they will perhaps
only discover their error when the spurious
mixture has wrought its evil effects.

In a rural district, among ono of the plainest
and simplest people of Pennsylvania, apart front
the bustle and evils of a thoroughfare, or large
town, convenient of access from all sides, with a
community noted for its temperance and morali
ty, and possessing a healthy and unusually beau
tiful situation, this Village presents advantages
for Literary Institutions, which strike the eye of
every visitor. Each one possesses new and com
modious buildings, and a full corps of teachers.—
They aro under entirely seperate goyernmentand
instruction, being situated about a quarter of a
mile apart, and having nothing in common ex
cept that the use of the Academy Apparatus is
given to the Seminary.
'rite course of instruction is thorough and ex
tensive, embracing the branches usually taught
in such Institutions. These Schools offer two
principal inducements; first, the most extensive
and complete Philosophical and Chemical Appar
atus in this section of the State, to which Profes
sor FENDALL has matte the valuable addition of
his choice collection of Astronomical abd Mathe
matical Instruments, including a fine Astronomi
cal Telescope; second, the cheapness of the terms.
Wishing to render their Institutions, as thr as
they ettn,accessibletoall,the Principals have redu
ced the price of boarding to the lowest possible
sum. The regular expenses at the Female Sem
inary, excluding the ornamental branches, aro
$30,00 per session, while at other similar Institu
tions the prices vary Sate $38,00 to $90,00 per
session. In the Academy, the whole expense of
tuition, boarding, washing, fuel. light and room
rent, will vary from $43,00 to $30,00 per session.
The whole number of pupils at both schools, for
the past year, was upwards of lee. Special Class
es formed for those wishing to;quality themselves
for teachers.
A Fancy Department will be added to the Sem
inary, in which a course of le,sons of 4 to 6 weeks
will he given in Gilding and Bronzing, on wood
and Stone, Embroidery on Satin, Crepe, Lace,
et cetera. Young ladies that wish it,
