She went Ashore on Long Isiawd beach, off Mori­ ches, early yesterday morning, in a dense fog. The passengers were all got ashore in safety and forty-three arrived in the city at midnight, together with the mails. The Pacific arrived at Liverpool at 4 A. M. on the 5th iast.

Indian -corn pressed for A military insurrection, lieaded by O’Donnell, had broken out in Spain.— Four thousand of ihe Madrid garrison had marched on towards Toledo. • L atest .— Madrid covered with b p ricades. Garrison patronizing the in­ surgents. O’Donnell threatening to a t­ tach the .palace. The Queen had replied to the Aus­ trian and Prussian summons that she will resist to the last rouble. The collision between the Austrian and Bussian forces in Moldavia is im­ minent. The Bussians had defended the Seretb, and the Austrian command­ er had gone to the seat of wav with or­ ders to insist oh the evacuation of Mol- ■davia, which the Bussians refused. Intelligence from Madrid to the SOtfe ult. state that the town was much agi- ■fated. The insurgents to the number of 4000 were at the Campo del Mora, about a gun-shot from the palace. Gen. Gampuzano, director of the » t » tiliery, had refused to attack them, al­ though protesting hi^ fidelity to the Queen. Gen. Lara had also refused; on the pretext that he could not rely on the garrison. O’Donnel, it was said, summoned the Queen to change her ministry, and un­ less she did so he would attackthe town the same evening. Subsequent advices to the 2d inst. state that Madrid was covered with barricades. The populace were crying out, “ Death to Sartorious.” The abdication of the Queen was un­ der discussion, and the formation of a regency, of which Navarez should be a member. On the other band the Patrie declares the news received from Spain to be favca-able to the government and that the insurgents after having been defeated, had marched to Toledo. P aris , July 4,—The Moniteur con­ tains a dispatch from Bayonne of the 3d inst., which states that on ^he 29th ult., the Queen of Spain appeared on the prado, and was well received by the troops and the populace. A dispatch from the Spanish govern­ ment of the 2d, states that on the 1st, at 4 p. M., the Queen’s troops attacked fhe insurgents and gained a signal ad­ vantage over them. The latter -were routed, and many pfijeers and privateers had asked permission to rsturn to their duty. T he B altic .— a dispatch dated Ham­ burg, July 4th, states that on the 29th tilt, the Anglo-French fleets were lying before Cronstadt, and that they expect­ ed a general attack the next day. The bombardment of Boomersund be­ gun at 5 p. M. of the 21st u lt. ; about 7 o'clock, the masked batteries were dis­ mounted, and at 10 the Russian maga­ zines were in a blaze. One account says the English lost three men, and another, four men and seven wounded. The Russians fought desperately. A bomb fell on the deck of the Hecia, and midshipman Lucas threw it over­ board before it burst. • Admiral Napier was near Crdnstadt with twelve screw line battle ships, nine French ships of the line^ and several French steam'corvetlesn T he W ounded and the R ailroad CosiPANT.—We learned yesterday that arrangements have been entered Into by the Baltimore and Susquehannah railroad company, with several of those Who were wounded by the late calami­ ty on that road, by which the claims &r damages are to bs compromis^'d'.— The company in these cases. tq.pFy*all the expenses, and to pay'la* certain weekly salary, equal to the amount ob­ tained before the injury, during the whole time the parties by their injuries are unable to attend to their vocation. This proposition Bas proved very satis­ factory* to-those who acceded to it, but there are others who will prbsecute for heavy damages, and leave the result to the judgment of a jury. \ The wounded generally are getting along very finely, most of them feeing cheerful and in good spirits. Mr-, Jo­ seph Eichtenberger is thought to be the most doubtful case in the city, both legs being terribly crushed, and he re- fiises to submit to an amputation. All the cases at the infirmary are doing very well, and there is a strong proba­ bility of the recovery of them all, now eleven in number. The condition of the conductor, John Seott,-was considered lastevening more favorable than at any previous time since the accident,, and strong hopes are now entertained that both his life and limbs will bo caved. Ho has been almost continually, since the accident, out of big mind, but a t intervals yester­ day he talked quite rational, - bis fever having greatly subsided.— Jm^ncan, I4t£ THE CUBA FILLIBtrSTSBS.

A young sailor, who arrived a few days since from New York, was making some purchases in a clothing store in the Northern Liberties, ■when the daughter of th? proprietor and the hero of this, true -history became mutually smitten. While bargaining for the articles, he invited her to accompa­ ny him on an excursion up the Schuyl- kill, and she, nothing loth, joined him subsequently. D aring their trip up that romantic river, they formed their plans for u run-away mkteh, which was to be put in effect the same night. In the evening they again met, and wandered off with the design of going to New York by the one o’clock night line,--- Unfortunately for their dcsigu, (Uh line does not start on -Sunday ■mormng, and the unWky pair, discovering this before the time, did not go to the Kensington depot,but continued to walk tbestreets, having concluded to wait un'tiUbe early morning line, they preshming that it left Walnut street wharf as usual on. the other days of the week. The parents of the girl, alarmed by her absence, started out in pursuit, and gave information to all the watehmen they met, and asking the arrest of the girl aiid her companion. A watchman told the stojy to oUcer J . DoiwOlL of the j^iortheastern division, and he, acci­ dentally encountering the pair in Sec­ ond street, nea^ ^hesnut, took them to her pareBt^s hou«p. A scene ■occurred there that may well be Imagined.

The type-setting machine in the office {ff the Fcedrelmidet, at Copenha’- gen, is described as- follows: If its suc­ cess is sure, it wifi be the first invention Of the kind that has ever been of any '.vahte ;■ an’d’ fhrs is not a great labor- saving machine after all, as it only doe's the Work of two men. The economy of the affair is not quite apparent; . ’‘‘Instead'of the usual cases and com­ posing sticks, «nd tfeeeompositor stanef- ing at his Work, we see a person sitting before a machine with keys like a piano, which he pjays on incessantly, and every touch on the tangent is followed By a click ; the letter is already in its place in the long mahogany Channel prepared for it> The whole is excessively in­ genious. In fact it is a fairy work.—-- The most wonderful part is that it dis­ tributes the already used type at the same time that it sets the new page; and with an exactness perfectly sure. No mistake cati -eVer occur. The com­ positor by this machine does/cftrfimas •as much work as another workman, but as he requires a-n aasifetant to line arid page the set type, this brings it to twice the amount of type set. The whole is ®o clean arid pleasa^at that it will proba­ bly soon be a favorite employment for women, - Tbe machine occupies a very ■small space, not more.than a large chair, and'is beautifully made of bard wood, fefass and steel. Ite success is now be^ yohd nil doubt. The proprletcws of the Foesdrelandet are so gratified by the one they have, that they have ordered an^ other. The price is 2400 Danish dol^ larS. it will last apparently for a cen­ tury or two without repair. Mr. Sot renson, the inventor, himself a composi­ tor all bis- life, kindly shows the ma- efefoe to any visitor. Of course a com«- positor cannot set with this machine ot once; it will take him a shoH time, a fow days, for him to become familiaf with the details, but he is then a gens tleman compared to bis old comrades.” L atest CotiNTRBS’EiTs.— 20 s , on th-e Bank of Bath, N.
