Solemn High Mass was celebrated in the
morning, the Archbishop presiding. There
was a dense multitude of people in attendance
the spurious Cathedral being crowded to its
utmost capacity. A procession, composed of
the Archbishop, seven Bishops, in their gorge-
OM vestments, some thirty.five or forty priests,
in their robes, the students of the Roman Ca'
tholic Theological Seminary, was escorted from
the Archbishop's residence to the Cathedral by
a guard of honor, consisting of the members
of St. Peter's and St. Joseph's Benevolent So
cieties. An eloquent sermon was preached by
one of the Bishods, and the ceremonies were of
the greatest and most impressive description
observed by the Roman Catholics upon such
august occasions. At vespers, at four o'clock,
P. M., one of the Bilhops presided, and anoth.

The Late Election.
Puti.anel.paiA, May 11, 1858.
They are seeking to disguise the stupefying
overthrow which the Lecompton Democracy
have suffered here, by all the mean and lying
shifts and subterfuges and evasions for which
that virtuous party has been so long prmemi•
nest. Some of their great oracles are almost
dumb at the result. A few of them confessed
in private to being et itical condition, but
the wholesale slaughter they suffered had nev•
er for a moment even entered into their dreams
Our victory is astounding even to us who achie
ved it. Only look at it. In May, 1856, this
city set the great Presidential ball in motion
by giving Vaux for Mayor a majority of more
titan 4, 000 votes. This vote inflamed the
courage of the Bache non men immensely. Un
der ite invigorating indications they pursued .
the warfare to the October election, when they
carried the city by over .3, 000 majority, and
then elected three Representatives, Florence.

upported the ecompton swindle in all its edi

turned out the moment we have an opportuni•
ty to get rid of them. In November following
she again went for Buchanan. In May, 1858,
all this towering ascendency is laid prostrate.
The Atiti Lecompton Mayor is elected by 4.700 !
majority, and the entire ticket with him.
Nothing can be more manifest than that this
is a victory over Lecompton. Henry, the new
Mayor, stamped the oily on Lecompton; &noun
ed it everywhere and without stint. Vaux,
on the other hand, was dumb. The Couven•
tion which nominated hint refused even to ese
tertain a resolution on the subject—it contain
ed death and destruction anyhow—so they let

Worrell ran uatu• tw•o thousand votes ahead of
all others on the seine ticket. Here is confir
mation of the cause for this mighty change its

The blow came only four days after the passage

Philadelphia, which its November, 1856, gave
Buchanan a clear majority over all opposition
of six thousand votes, has now repudiated Min
by a majority of four thousand seven heeds,'
a change of steady eleven thousand in eighteen
months. So snitch for violated promises, bro.
knit faith ate[ tame subserviency to the Slave
Power. Cotton is not king by .y means.
This tremerainits verdict has already been
herald ed over the country, and its exhilarating
echoes will wake up glorious answers on the
greet, slopes of RIMS., and impart fresh eons•
ago to the jaded fremnen of that unhappy Ter
ritory. It will show them that their wrongs
are known, and sympathized with by Pennsyl
vania, and that the traitorous instigator of
them has heels spewed out its the metropolis of
that State where his impudent and servile wor•
shipers claim him as her "favorite son." Bet
ter than even all this, it gives notice to the world
that. a vast and necessary revolution is impen•
ding—that the wrong cannot always thrive.
It has taught the friends of the Admiaistra•
tioss hereabouts that the system of reading out
of the party all who oppose them on this issue
will not he safe. There is danger seen that
such will find themselves strong enough to stay
out. Symptoms cf a yielding on the point be
gin to manifest themselves, and coaxing .d
cajolery are already practiced in some quarters
where a permanent defection would be likely
to become dangerous or formidalsle. But so
many hard things will have to be unsaid, so
m ossy sore places plastered over, that even the
proverbially flexible consciences of the Demuc•
racy its some crises revolt at the overture. It
is even intimated that Buchanan will hence•
forth turn his face Northward, and concede
stow what he has always contended for a fair
protection fur American la'mr from the pau
per labor of Europe. But if Nazareth could
justify the sneer that no good ever came out
of it, what hope can this getter ution have that
anything but villainy can proceed Win Wheat.

The accident happened at 1 o'clock this
morning. The night was very dark, and high
water had undermined the abutments of the
bridge. The train was running at the rate of
twentyfive miles per hour. The engine had
reached the end of the bridge, which was one
hundred feet long, when the whole gave way.
James Irwin, conductor, Jacob Burtenger,

None of the passengers were injured.
Hail Storm in Virginia.
RICHMOND, MOy 16, 1858,
A terrible hail storm occurred in Chesterfield
County last evening. Some of the stones were
of the size of hens' eggs. Vegetation was de
stroyed, the ground strewn wiih the leaven and
branches of trees, and a great many windows
broken. The hail was from two to three feet
deep in some places in the roads. The train
from Petersburg last evening came in contact
with a fallen tree, and the engine and cars were
much damaged, The storm is unprecedented.
Another American Vessel Fired into by
a British Cruiser
Captain Howes of the schooner Nubile, ar
rived last night from Mobile, 'reports on the
29th ult., when twenty five miles south of Key
West, saw a steamship to windward bearing
down for us. Hove to. to speak her, and when
within rifle shot distance she commenced fir.
tog rifles at us, the balls from which passed be.
tween the men on deck and lodged in the bul•
warks. We then hauled down the jibs, when
they fired two more shots. They then sent a
boat on board of the Mobile and overhauled
the vessel's papers, and declared their inten •
lion to seize the vessel, she not having a for
eign register on beard, but afterwards left
without doing so. They gave no reason for
acting as they did, nor did they deny plainly
seeing the American ensign set on our vessel.

A Church Burner.
Mr. Jacob WnHick, of Millersburg, Holmes
county, 0., who for some years has been in •
sane on religious subjects, took it into his head
a few weeks ago, that be was commissioned to
burn down all the churches. Accordingly, on
Thursday last, be proceeded to the Lutheran
church, about four unites West of Millersburg,
and set it on tire. After staying to see that
his work was well done, he proceeded to a Me•

however, the fire was discovered bellne much

This universally esteemed fish which abound
in the Delawate and Hudson, from early in
April to the middle of June, continue to he as
abundant as ever, notwithstanding that myri
ads are annually destroyed by the agency of
man. Its creative and reproductive power is
among the marvels of nature. We observe
that Mr. Robert A. PellpPrrsident of the Am
erican Institute, at the Farmers' Club, recently
read a very able paper on the habits of fish,
which has been reported for the New York
Evening lost. His account of the shad is re.
murkably interesting. According to Mr. P.,
the 'shad spawn about forty five thousand, and
they ascend our rivers for that purpose. The
organization of this fish enables it to breathe
salt or fresh water, and taking advantage of
this fact, I have been induced to breed them
in ponds, and from numerous experiments, I
am led to believe that shad live but one year,
and that when they puss down our rivers after
spawning they are so weak and emaciated
twt they tall at easy prey to voracious fish.
They grow in a single season to weigh from
five to eight pounds; they appear, as well us
the herring, to have been created to form the
food (tribe million inhabitants of the ocean.
They take, like herring, or which they ore er.
roueously called by fishermen, the mother,)
the circuit of the sea, commencing it, the re.
gist, t . the North Pole, in schools, equalling
in extent the whole of (treat Britain and
France. When they reach the coast of Geer'
gin, they separate into immense squadrons,
and as the season advances, run up all the
rivers on our coast, followed a little later by
the herting. Recent writers question the mi
gratory character of these fish, and suppose
that they remain during the winter in the depth
of the ocean, burrowing in the mud. This is
bad philosophy, as they are not organized for
living in the mud, and the structure of their
air blade.ers prevent them from sinking in deep
water. Their form indica'es clearly that they
were designed by nature to swim near the sur
face of the sea, and to be always in motion. I

It understood, in certain quarters in

having in view a union or In ion at the

such a union, is the hostile attitude assu•
