An immense outpouring of tlie sturdy and ir;- doiiiitable Democracy of Virginia, took place at Fredericksburg, on the 13th inst., to celebrate the recent triumph of Democratic principles in ! that old Commonwealth. We wish we could transfer to our columns the en I ire report ol (he glorious Democratic celebration on that oeca- MO;I, which tills the Recorder, of Monday. We are compelled to restrict ourselves to a few ol tile interesting items. An immense procession marched to Mr. C. S. Scott's beautiful Island, rlieres niie 800 persons sat down to a bountiful dinner, at which presided Eustace Conway, President, assisted by a large number of Vice j Presidents. Toasts were drank, speeches made, and the utmost enthusiasm prevailed. We j nave room only forthe following letters read at | the dinner : WASIIIXGTOX, June 11, 181)5. Gentlemen : —I shall be constiained by olticial : engagements, to deny myself fhe pleasure of; participating in the proposed celebration of j Fredericksburg, on the 13th inst., hut 1 beg to I present my hearty congratulations upon the ' i,de signal triumph of sound principles and j manly sentiment of (he''Old Dominion." Pre-eminently prominent as the sons of \ ir- j srinia have been, from the commencement of llie j Revolution, for their hold advocacy ol the cause of freedom—for their consistent and patriotic | devotion to the only principles upon which a government, constituted like ours, can he sus- j mined, it may well tie doubted whether they I have ever achieved for themselves more distin- j gushed honor than in the iate election, or have j ' Ver rendered a higher service to this Union. If political heresies and religious intolerance 1 rnuld have shaken and carried the strong hold j I that paity, upon the faithfulness, patriotism, j intelligence unci courage of which the country ; fas been obliged mainlv to rely in every period "f serious danger, whether arising from foreign ! arms or domestic dissensions, it would have ; been the occasion, if not of discouragement, yet ; o! profound regret and sorrow, to those who re- j wre the constitution under which, as a nation, I we have attained such amazing advancement I and have realized socially results so unexampled ■ <*n the history of the human race. I'he proud elevation on which the Common- ? "health of Virginia now stands is freely recog- j ntzed and deservedly honored from one extrem- I 'tv of the I nion totiie other.

The great conservative republican party, under j the inspiration of Iter example, will (real their discontents, and, with the principles of ] 798-9 inscribed unmistakeahlv on their banners, will march to renewed triumphs.

Gentlemen : I have the honor to acknowl edge tire receipt of your communication "of the j 7th inst.. in which you invite me to he present I on the 13th inst., when "tfre Democratic party (IF this town (Fredericksburg) propose to cefe- I brute the recent glorious victory of our party in this State." The event you PROMISE to celebrate is no or dinarv triumph of one gnat political partv over another. It is the triumph of a great party of sound principles over a secret order, whose chief apostles and muster spirits, I fear, are Ab ' olitioriists. and whose principles, as far as known, are, in MY opinion, IN conflict with the spirit of the Constitution, and unfriendly to tire I nion. Manv estimable and honorable men, J I understand, have joined the order. REASON and ; calm reflection, it is hoped, will gradually per suade their withdrawal. I healilv congratulate you on the brilliant ; victory achieved in your Slate. But who could \ have anticipated any other result in Virginia, where the flag of true political principles has. never vet trailed in the dust. It vi ill not be in U.Y power, gentlemen, to; join v: HI on this interesting occasion. 1 am, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, J. C. DOBBIN. A KNOW-NOTHING MEMBER OF CONGRESS "RULING AMERICANS"—THE WAY HE HOES IT! ; —Fhe NEW York Post has a report ol a trial ; ; in tire Queen's court of Dr. V a Ik, K.

FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 29, 1855. rTP"Som' fanatic has sent us a copy of the "Christian Advocate and Journal," the organ of the Methodist church, published in New York, containing a long editorial defence of Knovv-Nothingism. YY'e have only to say that if the leaders of a church of Christ think they can propagate the free and enlightened gospel which our Saviour taught, hy teaching hatred, ill will and proscription towards a class of Christians who can at least claim equal sincei itv with themselves, perhaps they are doing God's service. If, by encouraging an interfe rence with lire rights of conscience, and doing all in their power to crush out every honorable incentive to patriotism among those who seek the shores of this country as an asylum against oppression, llrey can win the respect of mankind, "let them roll on." Or, if the taking ot an oath the eequirements of which compel its vic tim to lie and deceive, is in consonance with the duty of a Christian, our New York con temporary has proclaimed it notre to soon.— There are. however, many good and true Meth odists who cannot sanction this course, as war ranted either by the example on teachings of the Great Head of the Chinch. Such, at least, are tree from all responsibility, and if they are called upon to mourn the decline of a religion they regard dear as tlreir life's blood, they can have tire proud consolation of knowing tlrev had neither part nor lot iri it. Those that sow the wind may vet he called upon to reap the whirlwind.— JH tent ova n Democrat. ADAiIKASiU SAID. During the Rev. Dr. Tvng's intemperate speech upon temperance, a few evenings since, on !he boards of the New York Metropolitan theatre, he called out the Rev. I)rs. Spring and Vermilye, and "the noble IMhuire,"ad wan led to know why they did not come lip tin-re, and bear their testimony in favor of the liquor law ' Being similarly caller! out afterwards at a meeting of the Colonization Society, held in his own church, Dr. Bethuire undertook to answer both of these appeals at once. His reply was a model one, and deserves to he stamped, in letters of gold, on tire hack of every pulpit bible in Christendom. He said : "I have naught to do with law and law-mak ing, fur the sufficient reason that I am a clergy man. My mission is not to fight I am not sent to tight : for Christ has said, "My king dom is not of this world, else would my ser vants fight." My office is riot with law, poli tics ot tfre polls.

How many years the long dresses have swept the streets! For tire last twelve months bonnets have been flying off the iread, and so, probably, tfiev will continue for twelve more. However, the bonnets are sim ply ridiculous. As to long dresses, there is something to he said for tlnm. They are con venient to aged ladies. Tlrey enable them to enjoy, without attracting remark, the comfort of slippers and laced stockings ami rollers for their old ancles. They render it possible for young ladies to wear bluchers and highlow s, thereby avoiding damp feet, and to save wash ing, hy making one pair of stockings hist a week. So tliey will doubtless continue to he worn whilst the laws of fashion are dictated by a splayfooted beauty, or a lady troubled with bunions. But this kind of u|H>logv cannot he made for hang ing sleeves. They are not only absurd, hut in convenient. They are always getting in the way, and in the sauce and the butter boat.— Y our wife cannot help von to a potato across tfre table, but she upsets her glass and breaks it with her dangling sleeve. It may be said that your wife has no business to help potatoes—that there ought to he footmen in attendance for that purpose. Certainly, tir else she should not wear sleeves. But ladies must, of conise, follow the freight of fashion, whether suitable to tlreir cir cumstances or nut. Could not the leaders of fashion, then, in pity to their less opulent neigh hois, devise and sanction a kind of sleeve suita ble to iif— in a cottage—whether near a wood or elsewhert to be called cottage sleeves, and to he worn by the genteel cottager-classes without prejudice to their gentility.— Punch. HORRIBLE AFFAIR EFFECTS OF RI YI. —Onr friend and correspondent, Mr. A. IE Wilkinson, of Cynthiana, writes that on tire 15th inst. Dr. M. P. Morgan, residing irear the edge of Arm strong township, in this ( Varidenburgh) County, came home about noon under the influence of liquor, and went up stairs to bed. His wife and children then went to a neighbors. In about half an hour some hoys in a neighboring field discovered Dr. Morgan's house on fire, but he fore assistance could he rendered tire house and contents were destroyed, Dr. Morgan being burned to death as Ire lay in his b*-d. On tire following day his borres were gathered from the ruins. Our correspondent says : "It was the most aw ful sight my eyes ever be held to see his charred bones and liver and en trails and heart burnt to crisp like cinder. The deceased was about sixty years of age, and leaves a wife and three children. When sober he was a good Physician, a kind friend arid an estima ble citizen. His widow is a daughter of A. .VV.

The L<Wd"" , tfishop jof London being in the Chair, in the course of the evening, proposed the following Toast ; i i "The Literature and Science of the United j States." Mr. Buchanan being called upon to respond, ; did so, in the following admirable remarks, ) which we extract from the London Globe.— Tlrey are not less patrioticly American than universally philanthropical in sentiment: Jit/ Lord, .My Lords and Gentlemen —T es teem it a privilege to be invited to respond to this sentiment in favor of the literature and science of my country. The applause with i which it has been greeted by the present dis tinguished company proves that it was no un meaning compliment, hut has proceeded from the heart. lam proud of tfre advance which my countrymen have made in literature and scrence, and am equally proud that this has been justly appreciated by a British audience of such high authority on questions of litera ; tore Sod science, tGal there can be no appeal from its* decision to any higher tribunal. The time was when tfre question might have been justly asked in this country,— Who reads an American book ? That time lias passed away, and, judging bv my own intercourse with Eng lish society, it might with equal justice be asked, who has not read an American book ? 1 find that everywhere throughout tfre United KingdqiiN the works of American authors are now published and circulated. These however, hear hut a comparatively small propottion to the number and variety of works of distinguish ed British authois, living and dead, published and circulated throughout tire I nited Slates. In little 'more than half a century from the present hour, with tire blessing of God, these works evil! he read and admired, will influence the lite ami the conduct and the destiny of a hundred millions of intelligent Americans !re t wren ft\t* Atlantic and i'arific <q^.t.-- ing tire same language with yourselves. What a bond of union must this prove to he between lire kindred nations. It must not Ire inferred, that although proud |of approbation, we estimate your attainments j in literature and science beyond their proper i value. We freely admit that ours is nothing more than the early promise of a healthy and vigorous youth : hut we live in the confident hope that our maturity will more than justify | this promise. We have hut fairly commenced the task, : but as we aim at excellence in literature and science, we shall never relax our efforts until, if possible, we may attain a place in the tem ple of tame on the same prom! eminence with yourselves. "We will try"—Yes, "ree re/// ////." This has become a motto of onr country.' We have manv reasons for believing that we shall prove successful. Among the principal of tlrese is tire undoubted fart that literature and science occupy that exalted position in tfre opinion of our count! y men to vrh+ch they are so justly entitled. This is well calculated I to give an impulse to ambition. There is no class amongst us who stand higher—no, not orre—than the class of eminent authors. For tire truth of this assertion, I think I might with confidence appeal to the experience of gentle men now present. Such men are everywhere received in the United States .is public benefac | tots. Tire republic of Utters is a universal repub ' lir, and embraces within its limits all civilized nations. Several of its most distinguished rep resentatives are now within tire sound of my voice, and the educated people of all nations 1 ar** tlreir constituents and judges. These true ! representatives of the progress of civilization may tail to receive justice from their contem ; poraries—tlrey may be foo far in advance of their own age to be appreciated ; but posterity never fails to do them justice. Whilst the : generation of politicians, and, with rare excep tions, even of statesmen, pass away with tire I events with which they have been identified and are forgotten, such names as those ofShakes peare, and Milton, and Locke, and Newton, flourish in immortal youth, and their works will ; constitute tfre improvement and delight of all 1 geirerat ions. On the otlrer side of fhe Atlantic, such | names, not to specify those of living authors, i are as familiar as household words, riot only among the learned, hut among the masses of ! tfie people. These hy the blessing of heaven, have generally received a common school edu j cation, and are able to read and to relish the standard works of your best authors. ! I delight in tire reflection and tire hope that the literary and scientific men of Great Brit ain and tire United States will constitute a i perpetual bond of peace and friendship between • lire people of the two count! ies. Y'our inen of this class belong to us, as our men of tire I same class belong to you. We have each a common property in both. They cannot fail ito exercise a mutual and most happy influence on the two nations. It has been tfre misfortune of both, that almost ever since the American j revolution, there has been a succession of dis turbing questions between the two governments. The irritation arising front these can always be allayed, and the unhappy consequences may, I trust, always he averted by tfre production ! and common sympathy of the men at the head lof the republic of letters. May the time never arrive when these men shall he arrayed against each other ! The consequences might then be disastrous. Before resuming my seat, I must, in order to gratify my own feelings, express an unqual ified approbation of the Literary Fund Socie ty and its most praiseworthy object. It does not confine the relief it bestows to British au -1 tliors alone, hut, in a spirit of genuine liberal ity, extends its benefits to those of other na tions. Genius, as has been justly observed, is always sensitive ; and, therefore, the boun ty of the Society is distributed in the most se cret and delicate manner, so that the feelings of those who receive it are spared Irom public observation. May this Society be always pros j perous, and may it always be provided with the means of extending its blessings and its benefits to a class of men to whom mankind are so greatly indebted. From the Troy, June lit. Sentence of Henrietta Robinson—the "Veiled Murderess." This afternoon, at ten minutes past three o'- clock, Mrs. Henrietta Robinson was brought in to court by Sherill Price, to receive the sentence of the law. The fact that the prisoner was to he senten ced this afternoon hail been somewhat noised a bout town, and in consequence, a large crowd bad collected before the opening of tire court. Mrs. Robinson entered the co'.irt room with a firm, sprightly step, laughing and conversing with the Sheriff, and taking her seat by the side of her counsel, Mr. Pierson, she said composed ly—"How do you do, Mr. Pierson.'' The District Attorney, Mr. Bingham, rose and said : "May if please the Court, I have a motion to make in the matter of Henrietta Robinson, who stands convicted of the murder ot Timothy Lan agan. fam informed that the prisoner is now in the Court room, and if it may please the Court, I move that the sentence of the law now be passed upon her." Mr. Pierson remarked that he had now noth ing to say against the passing of sentence. He had done for his client all that lay in his power. He considered that she was unjustly condemn ed, but the Supreme Court had adjudged other wise, and ordered this Court to pass sentence upon her. He could do nothing further fur her. He begged leave to inquire what disposition had been made of the motion of the District Attor ney, mnW on Saturday fast, to amend the re cord ? The Court replied that although no order had been entered, lie had concluded to grant the mo tion of the District Attorney, in the manner de sired by Mr. Pierson—striking out Sheriff Price's affidavit with ttie other matter. Mr. Pierson then desired tfiat the court should correct a slight clerical error which had been made in the affidavit —it having been dated the ~-lfh of June, instead of May. The court informed Mr. Pierson that the er lor should be corrected. Mr. Pierson—l have nothing further to say against the passing of sentence. I have exhaus ted all my power to save this poor woman. I considered she should have had a new trial, but the Supreme Court thought otherwise. 1 have done all in my power to avert her sentence, without Stope of l>-e or reward of any kind. The Couit—Officers will see that the specta tcr j are seated. After the confusion which was caused in o beying this order bad subsided, Judge Harris said : Mrs. Robinson, have you any objections to removing your veil ? Mrs. Robinson threw her veil over her bon net, laughing and conversing meanwhile. The Court—lt is my duty to inform you that the Supreme Court ot Albany has denied the application of your counsel for a new trial in your case, and has ordered this court to proceed to pass tlm sentence upon you. Have you any thing to say before that sentence is passed ? Mrs. Robinson—Yes I have much to say, but I know I should be interrupted. The Court— You have been convicted of the wilful murder of Timothy Lanagan. Mrs. Robinson—Yes, but it was upon false evidence. You have all conspired against me. Shame, Judge, shame! The Court—The law has proceeded with a slow but steady step to judgm-nt. You have proceeded through its every phase until you have arrived at this condition. You have lost all. To von life is lost—character is gone— Mrs. Robinson—No, no—not all. If I thought you would listen to me—but I know you would not T would advise vou to abandon this struggle w itb the world ; 1 would advise you to throw off this feigned insanity, and prepare to meet, with true womanly resig nation, the fate which awaits you. Everything is lost to you. Life to you is not worth possess ing. Honor and virtue are lost, Mrs. Robinson Don't trouble yourself about that, Judge. I am aware that you would listen to nothing from me. J shall, therefore, without further remark, proceed to pass sentence upon you. THE SENTENCE. The sentence ol the Court is. that vou, Hen rietta Robinson, be detained in the county pri son until the third day of August next, and that on that day, between the hours of ten o'clock in the forenoon and two in the alternoon. you he hanged by the neck until you are dead, and rr.av God in his infinite mercy save your soul. Mrs. Robinson—You had better pray lor your own soul, sir. Mrs. Robinson then arose, and was about to say something to the court, when Mr. Pierson desired her to remain quiet. Mrs. Robinson—VY by should I remain quiet? What lor ' lam the victim of a political con- TERMS, 93 EER YEAR. VOL XXIII, NO: 46. spiracy which is calculated to crush an innocent woman. All have deserted nre. M. I. Town send has deserted me. Sherill Price is a shame less, heartless Mr. PierSon—Be quiet. The prisoner sfill kept up a conversation with Mr. Pierson, which we were unable to hear, merely distinguishing the name of John C. Mather. The audience at this point became greatly excited. The greatest confusion pre vailed. The Court—lt is particularly desirable that the audience should remain seated. It is to be hoped that no one will follow the prisoner to tire carriage. The Sheriff'will remove her. Sheriff Price here asked Mrs. Robinson to ac company him. She turned and looked sharply for a moment—then, drawing her veil over her face, and poinltng her finger at Judge Har ris, exclaimed, solemnly : "Judge Harris, may the Judge of Judges be your Judge." 'Fire prisoner was then conducted from the court room, her face being again covered bv the iriysteiious blue rej|. She was, despite the re quest of the court, followed to the jail by quite a large number of spectators. From Ihe F.vansville (Ind.) Journal, June 4. Aid) Law in Gsidiann. A short time since we published (he fact that a large body of ruffians of Clay and Vigo coun ties Gad cut away tire hank of the Birch Creek reservoir, and that they threatened dire ven geance on those who should attempt to repair the breach. The Governor issued a proclama tion, which we published, offering rewards for tfre perpetrators of the outrage. The scoundrels sent a'formal notice to the resident trustee at Terre Haute that, if an attempt was made to re pair the canal, it would heat the risk of the lives of the men sent, and that the canal would he cut away for a long distance in the neigh borhood of the reservoir. Notwithstandingthose threats, a State boat was sent to the reservoir last Tuesday, with twenty armed laborers, under charge of Mr. Higgius. They worked all Tues day without interruption. Wednesday night the canal bank was cut away on Summit Level, eighteen miles below Terre Haute; and boats on tfre level coming down, at once made their way back to Terre Haute with much difficulty. The aqueducts over Birch creek, near the reservoir, as was that part of the canal cut away, was burnt down the same night, a guard of the poor deluded scoundrels standing hy to prevent interruption during the fire. It was also understood they intended to cut away the old reservoir, on the opposite side of the canal to tire other, and perform other acts of villany. As an exhibi tion of their contempt for the Governor and his proclamation, they stuck up a notice offering a high reward for the Governor's head. On Tuesday night the boat was surrounded by men with blackened faces, who, during tfre night, kept continual firing of guns about the boat. These ruffians held a meeting about a mile from the boat during Tuesday night, and drew tip a statement of their complaints, and resolutions of a threatening nature. In the morning a copy of these was found stuck upon the boat, with a warning that the laborers would be allowed seven hours fo takeaway the earth tlrey had replaced in the reservoir bank, and orre hour after that to leave, and that the canal would be cut away and the Birchcreek Aque duct burnt the following night. Tire loborers; who had been during 'the whole night expec ting an attack, took file seven hours for at once making tracks from the neighborhood, instead ot undoing tlreir work of the day previous. It was reported at Terre Haute, Friday morn ing, that this mob had destroyed the two locks at the junction. They left written notices at the doors of persons in their neighborhood, who regarded tlreir acts with disapproval, that iftfrev gave any information as to the perpetrators of these cowardly acts, or had anv thing tosay on tire subject, they would be at once taken out and lynched. It was reported at Terre Ilaute, that the owner of a mill in this neighborhood had, for some of his language of disapproval, been severely lynched by scourging, and was told that if Ire interfered any further his mill would be burnt to the ground. A number of coal boats were left high and diy. THE EARTHQUAKE AT BROUSA, TURKEY.— Tire Rev. C. N. Righter, at Constantinople, writes to the New York Observer : "From Brousa we have tire most frightful details of the recent earthquake. Shocks con tinued all night, and the inhabitants fled from tlreir houses to take refuge in tents. The great er part of the buildings that withstood the first earthquake were destroyed by this. Fire broke out in four districts, and four hundred and fifiv victims perished. Tire shocks are still repeated every hour, with more or less violence. The whole city (numbering 100,000) is deserted.— Tire fountains of drinking water have been cut off, and heated water is flowing in the streets. Mount Olympus, near hy, gives foith a hissing noise, and at intervals learlol explosion like tire sound of many thunders. Tire ancient tombs of the Sultans, on the mountain side, have been rent assunder and precipitated below.
