This may be destined to be a great city, i but
its day of prosperity has not yet arrived. Situ
ated at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississip
pi rivers, on very_ low ground, that extends far
leak into the State, it is subject to be overflown
by every high flood. Levees of great extent,
very thick and very high, have been constructed
for its protection, but as yet these form no ade
quate security. The levees extending np the
two rivers, the buildings resting on the ground at
only its natural height, are greatly below the
surface of the water, at flood time. Into the
lower grounds, on the city site, the water which
passes the embankments by Ig9akakes and which
falls in rain, collects ; thus forming ponds and
filling cellars, if cellars should be constructed.
When the rivers are low, and the seasons dry,
evaporation disposes of this water; but at very
wet times, the ingress is beyond the powers of
sun and wind whollly to absorb. Hence the ponds.
Our teaveling correspondent noticed, lately,
the discomforts, dangers, and dire prospects of
the place. Foy this he was taken severely to
task, by a Cairo paper, which spoke very boast.
ingly of both the present and the future of the
city. put the.editor took up his pen a little too
soon. IX was but a few days until the increasing
floods broke through, the embankments, and over
whelmed all. The large new hotel, and many
humbler buildings, are totally destroyed. Peo
ple had to be taken off in skiffs and boats, some
of them from the third windows of their houses.
The loss is immense. The levees may be re
paired again, and raised higber, and made really
strong, so as to be' a sure protection, but the
very great cost of, making the embankment suf
ficiently extensive and thoroughly safe, and the
almoet universal disposition of men to cease from
labor when they think ig will do, are likely to
subject the inhabitants at no distant day, to a
similar calamity to that now suffered.
This place, in the year 1857, had four hundred
and flfty.tbree houses actually erected, and twen•
ty-one in course of construction, of which seven.
teen were brick, and the rest wooden. In that
year the assaseed value of the property within
the oily limits, was $1,434,779. For the hotel

has broken through, was thus described by its
The site of the city is not only fully protected
by the construction of ordinary levees, and em
bankments along the banks, awl by sectional le
vees across the base of the triangle made by the
two rivers, but a new and substantial levee, or
embankment, is in course of construction, and a
portion already finished, which will be eighty
feet wide at the top, with an average height of
about ten feet, and five feet higher than the high
est water ever known at that locality. This levee
qr embankment will entirely encompass the city,
forming on the top, the front street on the banks
of both the. Mississippi and Ohio rivers, and from
its size and substantial character, will afford a
complete proteotion from overflow at any Fl tag e
of water, however high ; and which, when com
pletely paved, will not only render it a walled
pity, but actually the cleanest city in the world.
This levee will be of the most enduring charac
ter, and is to be the work of the Illinois Central
Railroad,Company. It has been completed suf

finished for the accommodation of business.

Joss' 16 —The British Aggression resolutions
adopted by the Senate, conclude that the recent
outrages require, in the judgment of the Senate,
ouch nninequivooal and anal disposition of the
subject by the governments of Great Britain and
the United States, touching rights involved, as
shall satisfy the just demands of this government
and preclude hereafter the occurrence of like
aggressions. That the Senate fully approves of
the action of the Executive in sending a naval
force into the infested sees, with orders to protect
all vessels of the United States on the high seas
from search or detention by the vessels of war of
any other nation, and it is the opinion of the
Senate that, if it becomes necessary, such addi
tional legislation should be supplied in aid of the
Executive power as will make such protection
JuNE 19.—8 y the Europa dispatches have been
received at the State Department from Mr. Dallis,
covering the response of the British government
to the letters of Secretary Cass upon the recent
searches of American vessels in the Gulf.
The pith of these dispatches is, that, while
England disavows all authority for any offensive
acts that may have been committed, and while
standing ready to make all the reparation that
may be required, she is not, at the same time,
willing to abandon the right of visiting all vessels
that may be suspected of being engaged in the
traffic of slaves. In other words,fthe most effec.
tive measures will still be used for its suppression.
It is, however, the desire of the Britiqb govern
ment that these visits may be made in the most
acceptable manner, and to secure this the English
Minister of PRreign Affairs would he pleased to
receive such suggestions as the Cabinet of the
United States may be disposed to make.
The tenor of these dispatches being entirely
unlooked for, they create no little feeling on the
part of the President, who, it is confidently pre
dicted, will insist at once upon the abandonment
of the position which England asserts her inten
tion of adhering to. In• other words, the right of
visit will not be conceded by Mr. Buchanan, in
any shape whatever.
Jvss 20.--Col. Kane arrived here last night
bringing dispatches from Gov. (lamming, whom
he left at Camp Scott, on the 16th of May. They
were delivered to the President of the United
States. Their purport has not officially transpired,
but it is ascertained that many of the accounts
with which the public mind has been pre-occu
pied are erroneous, and calculated to deceive the
country in respect to Utah matters generally.
To this fact may be attributed the uncarteons
refusal of Kane to communicate with- the • press.
It is understood that Kane denied the truth of
the telegraphic announcement from Booneville,
intimating that the army would move on the
arrival of the peace commissioners, when in fact
Cumming has requested it to remain where it is
until orders shall be received from Washington.
Contrary to reports widely circulated, Kane
does not admit that there have been any such
differences between Gov. Cumming and Gen. John
son as would jenpard the public interest; he
speaks in eulogistic terms of Johnson and the
high state of discipline which the latter main
tained over his forces, and of the praiseworthy
spirit maintained by the army during the Winter.
The friends of the administration are much
pleased with the manner in which he is under
stood to allude to the conduct of Cumming, say
ing that he is deserving of the gratitude of his
country. There was great hopes in Utah, as
elsewhere, that the war was at an .end; a peace
party has been formed, and was sufficiently strong
in time to arrest the marches of the Mormon'
forces against our own. Last Spring it was the
impression that Brigham Young, who openly
espoused the'canoe of the United States, would,
in this respect, be able to maintain his position;°
there was at one time strong opposition to him
before the emigration was resolved upon; but,
ever since, this feeling of hostility has been sub
JIIN.II 21.—Sufficient intelligence has been re
ceived to leave no doubt that Capt. Maroy's train
had reached Camp Scott in Safety. It was the
intention of Gov. Cumtaing, when last heard
from, to open a trade with the valley. Many of
the Mormons were understood to awn more cattle
than they were desirous to carry on, and of
which they were anxious to dispose. The safety
and general welfare of the troops at Camp Scott
and elsewhere between that post and the United
States, may be reckoned upon with confidence..
The Mormon troops have been entirely with
drawn from the approaches to Salt Lake, though
the people threatened to return if the army-ad
vanced before they reaped and carried off the
wheat harvest. Gov. Cumming says it may be
regarded as safe for emigrants from the United
States to proceed to California via Salt Lake, the
road being entirely open.
A dispatch from Leavenworth says that Gen.
Harney, staff and escort, left that place for Utah
on the morning of the I.6th.
JUNE 22.—The offioial advices received by the
last arrival from England, are more favorable
than has been represented. They reiterate the
friendly sentiments toward the country, disavow
intentional offence against our flag, and mention
the fact of a prompt assurance of orders to discon
tinue,the visits which have given rise to the pend
ing difficulties. Her Majesty's government do 3S
not insist on vi..itation or search as a right, hut
as both nations are solicitous to put an end to Vie
African slave. trade, and desires a mutual under
standing or arrangement as to the proper and ac
ceptable manner of ascertaining the character of
the suspected slavers. This is the mooted point.
The dispatches are far from being unsatisfactory;
in fact, the doctrine so long maintained by our
government is considered es praotically acknowl
edged by Great Britain. The differences between
the two countries are not such as

THE OLD WAR DEBT or 1812.--We understand,
says the Union, that an amendment has been ap
pended to the civil appropriation bill now before
Congress, which orders a re-opening of the ac
counts of the States against the federal govern
ment for advances during the war of 1812 ; and
which, on new balances being found due to the
States, on some different principle of calculation
from that which was adopted when 'the accounts
were settled many years age, provides for the
payment of these balances out of the federal
We believe that the adoption of the pro Posed
mode of caloulating interest on these long settled
and forgotten advances, will produce balances in
favor of the States, which will amount in the ag
gregate to a sum variously estimated at from three
to five millions of dollars.

It is singular through what unexpected chan.
nels important intelligence frequently oozes out
into the public stocKof information. There was
a meeting of Mexican bondholders, in London,
some three weeks ago, at which resolutions were
unanimously passed, condemning the conduct of
the Mexican authorities, and calling upon the
English Government to interfere in behalf of the
creditors, to whom no paYraent` had been made
for two years and a half, though the „arrears of
interest are $8,000,000. At the same meeting,
(says The Timm) " A resolution In Miro!' of Gen.
Houston's motion in the United States Sedate,
for a Committee to report on the expediency of a
protectorate over Mexico, met with
proval, and a bondholder present stated , that he
had been told by the American President, Mr.
Buchanan, himself, that Mexico must eventually
belong to the Union." The name of the commu
nicative bondholder is not giveit.—Phila. Frees.

We notice parcels of wool coming in, but the
great bulk of the clip is not yet in market.
Prices, so far as we can learn, range from 25 to
40 cents, the latter price paid only for the very
choicest quality, nicely handled, and in good con
dition. A. lot was sold on Monday, 14th inst, at
39 cents. The clip from the same flock sold last
year at 43 ciente, and the reduction on inferior
grades is probably in an equal ratio.—Akron
( Ohio,) Beacon.
But little wool has yet reached this market.
The clip of the season is not. yet ready, as shear
ing has been delayed by the continued heavy
rains. However, the shearing is now going on,
and the entire clip will soon be ready for the
market. The prices offered will be below those
of last year. The grade of wool produced in
this County, it is believed, will average 26a33
cents per lb. Some clips will go much higher
'than this, while the coarser and more indifferent
will fall somewhat below ; but from the best in
formation we can now obtain, we think the aver
age will be about as above stated.—Ravenna

NAPLES, May 31.—Since Saturday. the erifp
tion has proceeded with constantly increasing
violence, and hsq prpn,nt,it nt night. n, tnnra and
more magnificent z-peer , icie. In my last' letter, 'I
mentioned that there issued from the great basin
of fire in the Atrio a single" stream of lava,
which, after a tortuous course, was descending
the declivity of the mountain. This stream has
continued its course, varying in breadth accord=
ing to"the accidents of the ground, and seems
now to direct itself to a point between Portioi
and Torre del Greco, but , much nearer the latter
than the former. It approaches close:to the'scat
tered farm houses, which lie above the towns at
the foot of the mountain, many of which it can
scarcely fail to destroy. •
• In the afternoons of Saturday and Sunday, two
other streams of lava broke out of the great basin,
and are descending the mountains toward the
neighborhood of Portioi. These streams seem to
follow the direction of ravines, which run nearly
parallel to the ride on which the Obserratory and
the Hermitage stand: These buildings have,been
hitherto saved from submersion by the lava by
their great elevation, the fluid naturally following
the direction'of the loWer ground "at either Side
Last night the spectacle was peculiarly grand
and imposing. 'The lava was . poured in increased
quantity along : each of the , streams already es
tablished, and, being in a high state of incan
descence, presented a peculiarly splendid appear
ance. • .
At about 8 o'clock, an immense torrent of lava
broke over the ridge, which confines, the basin' of
craters, in the direction , of the Bottum ; it flowed
down the declivity of the Somna as an
torrent of liquid fire, and with snob extraordinary
rapidity that in less than anlionr it had descended
through 'a considerable portion of the mountain.
Its progress was then, retarded, partly by the di
minished. steepness of the ground,.and partly by
the transverse ravines which must be filled before
the fluid can advanae. Nothing could extieed the
splendor of this torrent of liquid fire,' forming
the fourth principal stream of lava, but the most
extraordinary burst of splendor which has been
presented since the commenoement of the erup
tion took plaae, soon after 9 o'clock, when all the
months seemed to be simolianeously called into
violent action, and to vomit forth such torrents of
lava that the entire mountain seemed one -blaze
of fire; the varied colors produced 'in different
parts, owing probably in, part to reflection, pre
sented a beautiful and Striking appepranoe. The
lurid light diffused. from this enormous` bUriling
mass rendered visible the subjacent country, the
towns, the coast, and the bay.

curiosity, repair to the scene of this extraordinary
spectacle. The darkness being complete, and the
route in many parts difficult, each party is 'fur.
Dished with torch, and the view of these hundreds
of torches flitting about between the streams of
lava, is most curious, presenting the appearance
of multitudes of fire-flies. , •
The Ilermitaon, which is close to the great:' 'ba
sin of craters and rivers of lava, is approached - by
a tolerably good carriage road; and, as may be
supposed, hundreds Aif vehicles of every deacrip
lion, from the caleche of the millionaire.to - the
humble coricolo, are collected there toward mid
night. Donkey parties abound,.of 'which ladies
do not fear to form a part. . ' .
Part of the extraordinary splendor - of the spec
tacle on Sunday night was due to the burning of
forests, over.which the lava passed. The Neapol
items congratulate themselves on the cireum
stance of the lava having been directed into so
fanny different streams, for ifois in former erup
tions it hada been thrown into one channel, the
destruction which must have ensued :would have
.rune 1.--•The,eruption is splendid ! There are
three streams of lava,'Which begin•jtist between
Vesuvius and Somra ; we went as near as possible ;
we climbed to the top of aridge of lava which had
begun to cool, but it required all the carefulness
of our guides to prevent our burning ouffeet off.
On our way down we went to the top of the 'Oh
servatory, whence the' iiew of the lava was splen
did; the middle was flowing is 'fast as water;
there was a rayed reflection •in the smoke which
said was just like the Aurora Borealis in
SOotland. The eruption began last Wednesday
night; the lava begins where it did in 1855.
There were 'thousands of Pepple on the mountain;
it was an extraordinary scene. At the end of one
of the streams of lava, that on ;the Castellamare
side of the Hermitage, there. was a, ceremony, I
suppose to stop the lava. There were a sand and
some priests in attendance.

,Church for about fifty.years. He,spent the grfat

.Bethel Presbyterian Church, of which church he
was for many years *a Rulings Elder. He also
served, - for a time, with much acceptance, in
the capacity of Ruling Bider in the Mansfield
Presbyterian church, N. J., and in the Upper Mt.
Bethel Presbyterian' - church, Ps. 'Mr. Connelly
was gifted with an':ubsually vigorous mind; his
views of Soriptnril truth were very clearsand car
beini proPerly regarded' by thosesiho knew
him, arid were proper persons to judge; as among
the very best of lay theologians. He was decided
ly Calvinistic in his views and preferences, and yet
he had a very large measure Of Christian charity
for those of other Evangelical denominations. He
was charalteriatically cOnsidentioris, humble,. de
yout, and sessions in the cause of his Divine
ter. At times, during his last sickness , he seemed
,t'o overwbelmedin contemplation of the infi
'nitelovo,of God„asmanife j sted in the satiation of
sinners. The righteousn ess of our Loi:d Jesus
Christ was the sole,grotind of his ,hope and confi..

culiarly. precious. Upon reading to hith the first
chapter of the Epistle to the Ephesians, a few
days before hie death; it was said to him that this
chapter contains trdthe which are very unpalata

phasis, “These truths. are the , if eiy marrow of

present locality of Sharpshu4., HAB,uourite of
iterat ure was completed in Canoneliurg Academy,
before its charter as a College, and he was one
of the founders of the Franklin Literary Society.
He had a fine literary taste, and his scholarship
was accurate, and, for the time, thorough. He
was licensed by the "Old ItedFtone" Presbytery
in 1806 or 1807, and ordained by the same, prob
ably a year later. His residence as a pastor in
Gilgal congregation (now of the Presbytery of
Saltsburg,) commenced in I'OS, ^.nl in 1812 Ile
removed to Indiana, the other branch of his
charge. His principal pastorate was in the Pres
bytery of Huntingdon, over the congregations of
Frankatown, (now Hollidaysburg.) and Williams
burg, continuing from 1816 to 1884. Afterwards
he supplied a few years in the State of Tennes
see ; then for a while in the Presbytery of Blairs
ville; and last in the Presbyter" of New Lisbon.
In this connexion, becoming superannuated, his
Presbyterial standing remained till his death.
He cherished an enlightened and unwavering at
tachment to the doctrines and order of the Pres
byterian Church. He was exemplary in his at
tendance on the judicatories of the Church, and
in his interest in their transactions. His
pulpit talents were above the common grade. ,It
will be highly interesting to those who were best
acquainted with father Galbraith, to learn that
during the last year or two of his life, 'through
the operation iftliserifining glide whiblilitakes
" the redeemed,frem among men,7, "meet to be
partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light,"
he manifested mach 'more' than formerly, " the
meekness and gentleneas of Christ," * With a sympa
thetic regard - to the sensibilities of those' who
Were attendant on him. In the end;reposing
with . , confidence on'the merits of a redeeming Sa
viour, he seemed to enjoy
s " a good liMie throngh
grace," "as ananohor of hia'soul, both sure and
steadfast, entering into that within the`-veil,'

Many hearts have shared the grief, of the he

this bereavement, arein bitterness for their first
born. Ile,wai a young man of fine promise, and
his call from the tender, attachments of earthlto
the joys of heaven r though for sometitne,,epeot
, ed,,has' produced an affliction, which nothing but
the grace of God can heal. After a full course
of study, he was graduated at Washington Col
lege, Pa:, in 1854, having,heid a very respectful
standing in his class, andacquitted himself with
great credit in his , Commencement .oration.
Shortly afterwards, he tookeharge•of an academy,
in central Pennsylvania; during his .connexiort
-with whieb; - his health was impaired by attention
to his duties; though hislois in,this respect, was
tar than cothpensatid by his experience of
the power and hopes of spiritual life, which it
pleased - God to grant to him, during.the same pe .
nod From this time , forward, it was his ardent
Pirpose tO serve' the Savioni in the work of the
ministry=possibly as' a missionary-4ot he was
prevented even entrance upon the study of "Theol
ogy, by declining health. As = actively his
strength Would permit, he engaged for a time;
is the work of' a colpOrteur, in the service of the
Board of Publication, but "forthe moat part his
efforts were necessarily 'directed to therestora
tion of-his health; though' alai! these efforts
- were vain.
Bat it was•not in vain, that, our young brother
was led, by gentle stages- ihreugh a long course
of suffering, down.to the grave. His own views
were crossed and the fond expectations of pa.
rentswere indeed blasted thereby; but his Chris
-411111 character rapidly matured, and, his growing
fitness for heaven became apparent, in proportion
as- disease dimmed his earthly prospects. Na
turally noble,. affectionate, and unselfish, he be
came in Citristian ?meeknees, humility. and dud
. fulness; a, pattern to all around him.. His. desire
;to be useful was an intense longing, and joy
in the conversion of sinners absorbed his heart.
Referring tuthe wide.spread revivals of the last
Winter; he exclaimed a day' or two 'before his
death : 4 , Oh what a blessing to live 'at such a
time as - this!" His last hours were peaceful;
:his end was a triumph of faith';- and his blood-
Washed spirit has gone up' to rest in the bosom of.
Jesus. The offering of his heart upon the altar
'of the Christian ministry was doubtless accepted.
Yet • hie proclamations of the love 'of Christ
were demanded, not here, but in the company of
