T i he Spring Hill is a fore and aft 'Schooner, of
one hundred and thirty-three tons burden, built
at Provincetown three years ago, and was for a
time employed in fishing.
Alterations are progressing with all possible
;dispatch, and it is confidently expected that the
expedition, which is to sail from New-York direct
`fox the Arctic regions; will leave about the 26th
inst. • The vessel will take in about fifty'tons '6f
coal, and the ordinary provisions
‘ and. ship stores
for a two years' voyage, with a year's ,supply
desicated meat. These provisions •will be hiasr
banded by shooting birds, foxes seals, and other
animals, for food.
Her crew will consist of the following officers :
Dr. Isaac I. Hayes, commander; Capt. McCor
I nning master ; Mr. 8r... H. Dodge, first,
officer ; a second officer,"surgeon; carpenter,
artist, clerk, steward, cook, and six`men.
At a meeting of the -Ainerican Geographical
Society, held in. New-York on Tuesday, Dr.
Hayes was present, and statedthat the objeots of
the expedition were as folloWs :
1. That further exploraoon of the open Polar
Sea, discovered by Dr. Kane. with a view of de;
terinining its limits and 'character, and this
settling more positively this vexed question.
2. To complete the survey of the Northern
coasts of. Greenland and Grinnell Land.
3d. To determine important questions relative
to the magnetism, the meteorology, the natural
history and the general physics of the unexplored
region North of Smith Strait. .
Dr. Hayes states that on leaving Boston he
will proceed direct to the coast of Greenitind,
possibly touching at St. Johns. On arriving on,
the coast of Greenland, the expedition will'stop
at Upernavik, the most Northern outpost of
civilization, and the last missionary station on
the. Greenland coast. Here; they will procure
dogs and fur's. They will leave Upernavik
about the 26th of July, and proceed Northward
through the Middle Ice, and will reach Smith
Strait about the middle of August. The remain
der of the season, until the 10th of September,
will be occupied, in reaching a secure Winter
harbor on the West coast of Smith Strait. In
the Spring they will proceed Northward with the

were uttered, confirm ;hat I told you on Satur
day last, that the Emperor goes to Baden .to
tempt the PrinCe Regent to play the parfof Vic

everything Which I See daily'bdfora my eyes, if I
were to suppress the fact proclaimed, not by the
enemies, bnqhy the friends of,the Emperor, that
he has a Settled purpose to take not only the
Rhine, bin Belgium and Genoa..
The Berlin Correspondent of the j Thnes says :
' "The Prince,of Prussia was by no Means will

only, whenithe Prince was assured that the,,Em
peror wished to make a special communication. to
him, thsit he yielded."
The drutatitin from Nice, taking advantage of
the celebratiost at pees of the annexation 'of . Sa

The priest refused, 'upon the ground' that .the
ecclesiastical ritual prohibits the celebration of
mass for the dead during the octave of Corpus
Christi, unless the body of the deceased'person
be aetuallkehung in th'e'building:-,

The, great popularity of " Grace Truman," (of which
thirty thousand copies have been sold,) will secure, for this
book, thousands of readers.
Lams Mounts
The numerous readers of ...Grace Truman" have here
another Work on a topic of deep and thrilling interest, froin
the author of that highly popular book. Mary Bunyan, the
blind daughter of the immortal dreamer, in referred to re
peatedly in his autobiography and other works. She Was
about twelve years of _age when Bunyan was Imprisoned in
Bedford jail, and his anxiety on her behalf was one of isle
principal' causes of distress in his long imprisonment.
As drawn by Mrs. Ford, her character seems to have been
one of greet modesty and loveliness, and the story of her
love for William Dormer, and of his death for the cause of
civil and religious freedom, has much of the pathetic element
in it. Mrs. Ford is evidently thoroughly au fait in the inci
dents of Buriyan'a family-history, and in the topography of
Bedford and Blitow. • We can safeli,pretliet for tint work an
eatendio sale.
The simple incidents of Bunyan's life, his protracted im
prisonment, hie heroic endurance and folly faith, are of them
selves full of the deepest and moat thrilling interest. It
needed only the picture of his blind daughter Mary, in her
gentlenesi and patience under sore misfortune, to eve nom
pletenesslo the tragic yet noble scenes in, which Bunyan
,figures, sohiodestly yet grandly consplotions. The author of
the volume lief* ua has carefully gehered up such hiistori
inil facts, and they are fortunately nOmerous and well au
thenticated, aicould throw light upon' the subject, and has
'employed them withxreat sagacity and affect in the construe
tion,of her story.

Theinnouneement hf a new work from the pen of thetemom.
plistied authoress of '• (race Truman," will send a thrill of de
light through thousands of hearts. The book will be read with
an enthusiasm rarely equalled. There will be many a mois
tened eye over the beautiful pages of touching scenes In the
history of one whom all know °rant° love. Before it was
Outof the press, five thousand copies had been ordered, and
we doubt not It will have an iuunense sale.
This is the laid product from the pen of a lady whose
writings are mildly becoming- popular. Baer last work,
"Grace Truman,' •hvul a bale of over thirty thousand copies,
and this one ifi - said to be a better and a more interesdng
book. It is a very pleasing tale of fiction, the scene of
which is in " illerrie England," and the chief character, the
immortal and never-to-be-forgotton John Bunyan, writer of
the Pilgrim's Progress.
