AJttlVALOF THE AMERICA. Greet Britain avmt, -way on the Cen- tral America, Question! HALIFAX, May 8. The royal steamer America arrived at this port on route for Boston this forenoon. Her date* from Liverpool are to Satur- day the 26th. Her dates are three days later. The news is of no special importance. Ramon were current and had received some credit that the British Government was inclined to give way on the position she had assumed in controversy with the U. 8. Government upon the Central Amer- ican affair, but the belief was that Mr. CramptoB would be recalled. The London papers had obtained what was purported to be a copy of the treaty of peace. The contents of the document accorded mainly with what has been anticipated. CRIMEA. Letters from the camp of the 8th ult., state that acti/o preparations con- tinue for the departure of the army. A dispatch of the 8th states that Gene- ral Pollesier reviewed the whole army on the 7th. Gen. Scuders and many other Russian officers were present The epidemic had ceased among the sol- diers. An armistice has been established in As- ia. The colera raged fearfully among the in- surgents against the Porto in Arabia, and 13,000 died in one tribe numbering 45,- 000. ENGLAND. The steamer Canada arriv- ed at Liverpool on the 20th ult In the House of Lords, Monday, there was a majority against the Government of eight on a division. A second reading of tlio Church do scriptive bill in the House of Commons, Monday, in discussion touching expenses contemplated peace rejected, Sir. J. B. Gray said, notwithstanding display of fire works and other demonstrations, it would still l>e open to parliament on question respecting the terms of the peace to impeach the Gov- ernment if thought nesessary. PARIS. At a sitting of the corps legis- lative, on Friday, M. Montealbert made a remarkable speech on the freedom of the elective franchise. He denounced the Courts as an accomplice with the govern- ment to render universal suffrage a mockery, and called for alteration of the law. ST. PETERSBURG, 21st—Count Orloff has been appointed President of the Coun- cil of the State. TURKEY.—The Paris correspondent of the London Times says, the treaty of peace contains a clause that all the Allies shall evacuate the Russian territory as soon as possible, after the ratification. Omar Pacha's army will be formed into movable column\ to scour the country and enforce the execution of the new laws. Vienna letters says the commission for the reorganization of the Principalities will commence deliberations, before the close of the month. COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. In Liver- pool cotton market an active speculative de- mand had prevailed, and the quotations are slightly in advance of those announced by the Persia. The week's business amount- ed to nearly 100,000 bales, of which almost one half was taken by speculators and ex- porters. In breadstuff there was an approved tone and prices on the week a shado higher.— Provisions were generally firm at about for- mer rates. The London money market was if any- thing slightly higher. Consols were rath- er lower than on the departure of the A-'i merica. The closing quotations being 92 3 4@93 REPUBLICAN. •. C. RICK, Editor. Call of the national Committee.

A District Republican Convention for the purpose of prejudicing their country agafhst the free State men of Kansas. — But from the acount given of his wounds we should presume that the report of his death is correct We cannot however believe that is the work of the freo state men; and such is the general impression. It was a cowardly act by whatever party perpetra- ted; and it is hoped that the miscreant whether a freo state man or a tiorJcr ruf- fian will yet be brought to justice. • Im- mediately after the occurrance of this unfor- tunate affair, a public meeting was held at Lawrence by the Free State citizens, at which all responsibility for the act was strongly denounced: and Gov. Robinson, as Gov. of the State of Kansas offered a re ward of $500, for the apprehension of the perpetrators of this foul deed.

What we understand by a good press was seen last week. Business men who need the pe- culiar aid of the newspaper to further their enterprises, must be its support—and main- ly, in two ways: 1st, by giving it circula- tion, and 2d, by advertisements in it or by printed announcements. No country pa- per can live by its subscription alone. Its continuance is conditioned on the payment of its expense by its advertising and job pa tronage. A farming community have but region of the stomach, while little occasion to advertise. It lives by so- liciting the soil; nature is its foster-patron. The trades, the buyers and sellers, those who live by sales and exchanges, must be »rternoon, Drs. GIBBS of Frews! THE mist and ice clear up from the Lake, and wc think we see water.

For several days past says the James- town Journal, Dr. SAMUEL FOOTE of this village had been ill, and partially confined to his room and bed. His friends had not considered him dangerous, and within the last few days ho was thought to bo recov- ering, and had been out to sec his patients. On Wednesday last the Jamestown Medic- al Association, of which he was a monil>cr, convened at the Allen House. Several of its members had during the day called on Dr. FOOTE, and assigned his malady to the thought it was in his heart, and expressed the opinion tliat ho should die suddenly. After the session of the Association had closed in the urg, and looked to as the pecuniary and natural al- STRO ™ <* Westfield, called at bis residence. lies of the press.

A half-open bonk lay upon the floor by his side, his spectacles were up- on his face, and there was every indication that in the occupation of reading, without the tension of a muscle or the convulsion of a nerve, the vital functions had been sus- pended.

The end of those when cupped into a bottle containing asbestos moistened with sulphuric acid took fire at once. Such matches have been superseded by the mots simple locofoco matches, whicli ignite by friction without the aid of an acid. These matches are first dipped into molten sulphur, cooled, then coated, with a compo- sition of 16 parts, by weight of gum ara- bic; 9 of phosphorus, 14 of nitre, and 16 of fine peroxid of manganeese, and a little sulphuret off antimony. These ingredients are worked up with water to form a tbick paste, into which the matches are then dip- ped and then dried. Smalt and cinnabar are employed to color the ends of the matches. Those matches which ignite with a small cracking noise, are prepared with the chlorate of potash. It is a dan- gerous substance to use in their preparation. When it is employed care must be exercis- ed that the gumpaste in which it is mixed with the phosphorus does not exceed 104 degrees Fah. These matches are dried in a dry and warm (but not hot) room On October 24th, 1836, Alonzo D. Phil- ips, of Springfield, Mass., obtained a pat- ent for manufacturing locofoco matches with a preparation of chalk, phosphorous and glue. An ounce of glue is desolved in warm water; to this is added four ounces of fine pulverised chalk, and stirred until it farms into a thick paste. One ounce of phosphorus is then added, and tho whole kept a litttle warm and well stirred until the whole are well incorporated together. Into this the end of the matches—which havo been previously coated and then dried —are dipped, and then hud in rows on slips of paper cat wide enough to lap over Iks end et the matches.— Scientific Anur- ia belongs, he innocently asks, \ How many American parties are there V i W e would refer our neighbor to bis own columns for a solution of this question: and if he can follow his own tracks, he will be able to get at the information he desires, or at least needs.

The following facts are stated in tho an- nual report of tho Secretary of the Ameri- ;an Seaman's Friend Society: In the year 1830, the tonage of tho A- merican vessels was 1,191,776 tons; the number of seamen and watermen under the American flag, including those in the Navy, a little over 90,000. In 1855, the tonage had increased to 5,212,000 tons; and the number of seamen to nearly 400,- 000; both having more than quadrupled in one-fourth of a century. In 1844 tho tonage of tho British Com- mercial marine was 2,616,965 tons; em- ploying 172,986 men and boys; in 1854 it had 5,043,270, and her seamen, includ- ing the 63,000 in her navy, to nearly 400,- 000. desire, to be all things unto all men, to read over, if they never have done it before, the acsount^of the man who was found at the wedding, without having on the weddint' ga.ment. m m fc Congressional Silling. The head waiter of Willard's Hotel, in Washington, was shot by Mr. Herbert, a member of the House, from California. It appears that Mr. Herbert with a friend came down at 11-J- o'clock and called for breakfast but it being past the nsual hour he was told by the waiter that he could not have a meal, without an order from the of- fice for it. This roiled Mr. Herbert and be directed the servants to retire, calling them harsh names. Tho deceased made some reply, and is said to have .Used inso- lent language towards Herbert; at which Herbert struck him with his fist, or with a napkin. The deceased then picked up a plate or troy, making movements, as if to throw it, when Herbert, threw a chair at him, the latter returning the assault with a plate. The other waiters then rushed in and a general fight ensuei', during which Herbert discharged a pistol, killing one of tho waiters on the spot. The reports of the transaction vary somewhat but the above is the substance of tho testimony, as given on the examination. Herbert was committed to custody; to await his trial at the criminal court of the District; the justice before whom he was examined refu- s ing to admit him to bail. AM uncle marrying his niece by dispen- i'©f the Pope, is one of tho incidents 1 in the Florence Letter or tho AdwrtissT. The brother of the fiC Da** II anrried the daughter of *• 9mi D*dKss.

This* bill provides, that oral ev- dence, where no record exists, may be ad- mitted to prove military service; and al- lows one day's service for every 20 miles travel from the place of organization of tho troops, and also on their return after dis- charge.

THE great red dragon is loose again;— rum is abroad, and its fiery breath is blast- ing hopes and happiness.

On Monday, down on the flat dirt of yon- der street, iu the cross-lights of two print- ing oflices and a church spire, lay a neigh- bor, ilrniik, and muttering in the goblin di- alect of tho drunkard. Who gave him al- cohol for money ? Anoth-r—and worse: On Sunday eve- ning, a drunken Imsband entered a dwell- ing iu tho north part of town, whither his wife had gone to sec a neighbor, and sud- denly making at her like a tiger, leveled her, with barbarous knocks on tho head, to the floor. She was taken up insensible,and has continued in a precarious conditioi ever since. The man—the madman! was tak- en to a judgment seat, aud fined ten dollars.

R. bill was passed, the subject was postponed. The President sent to tho Senate the following documents relative to hostilities on the Paefic coast. Cen. Wool, under date of March 20, savs the war at I iigent's Sound will soon be closed unless such n thing is prevented by Gov. Stevens' determination to carry on the war independently «f the U. S. troops. He adds that the same remarks are ap ili cable to Gov. Currcv, and that l«>th these Governors are running a race to see who dips deepest into the treasury. He adds: In the dense forests of Bugent' Sound another Florida war can be carried on at an expense of twenty or thirty millions. Wool has no doubt but what ho could settle the contest if the Governors would withdraw. Gov. Stevens says Grn. Wool neglected and refused to send a force for the relief of himself and party when known to be in im- mediate danger, and believed by the best of judg-M to be coming on to Jcertain death, and this when he had at. his conm.an 1 a suffiejnt force of regular troops.
