The language, as expressed by a co temporary, is graceful and graphic, tender and sympathetic in spirit, and worthy of the aim to which it is devoted.

Pr>?RE8H or Spiritualism im NIW Ksg lakd ?A Boston correspondent says: ?? The number of * spiritualists." so called, are in creasing to such an extant in this quarter, that several leading pastors of the euy feel called upon to denounce the affair from the palpit as a dangerous delusion. Reference was made to theea in at least two diseoarsee yesterday One of tke speakers spoke of spir itualists ae otvdern necromancy Is Boston, and in some ot the neighboring to woe, this new sec: if it may be oalled one, hold meet t?gr and are exhorted by mei or women every Sabbatb " ?UVHHCTOS NEW* ASP 80%S!P. ?r. Commercial Agent Pabwis.?The let cr of this gentleman appearing in yesterday's York Herald appears to neet with little itvor in Wuhington out of filibustering cir *, and it seems to be judged, bj those well nformed in pub'io effeirs that his virtual as sumption of aathoritj to manage the relations of this government with Nicaraugua will bard Ij- prove agreable to the President and the head of the State Department. The letter in question is as follows: St. Nicholas Hotel, ) New York, April 23, 1855 ( fame* Gordon Bennett, Lsq.: It appea-s by an article in the Herald of yeserday, that Mr. J de Mareoleta, who lives it the house of the Spanish Consul in thii city, and signs himself "Minister from Nica persist* in disohftrgiD^ his pop gun at T^.at tei?'' Kinney Nicaragua expe dition the objwts proposed to be attained by the association of which Col Kinney and myself are among the members have already been made public through the Kinney and Oorwine correspondence, published in the Herald ef Thursday, the 19th inat Their ob jects, we feel warranted in believing, will not only commend themselves to Americans of en* terpiiae, but to every oitiien of Nicaragua who nai the future quiet and well being ot bis country at heart The allusion, in J. de Marco leta a letter to "public order," in connection with the present political condition of Nicara gua, is either a touch of humor, hardly to have teen looked for from so very respectable a four :e, or must be received as evidence that that gentleman has had no authentic informa tion during the past year from the State of which he styles himselt a Minister. ? well disposed portion of the toll ?bitantd of that heaven-favorod, but un fortunate region, to reclaim and bring under cultivation waste lands, increase the facilities cf internal communication, establish com merce and introduce the arts of civilisation taua peacefully and lawfully developing the : atural resources of a land now fast relapsing into a condition of savage wildneea ? in fine, 'o set an example of good conduct and obedi ?n-e in all things to the lars of the republic? th*si pU: poses, we believe, and are assured, from reliable sources will make us welcome in the homes to which we have been eordiallv invited. No further notice will be taken of J de "Urooleta's newspaper communications; but should any person be curious to know how that gentleman is regarded in ihe'? official rapacity" of which be speaks, both in Nioa. r*gua and at Waabingron, I shall be willing t > tarnish such information as I have upon ta? subject. I am, sir, respectfully, your ob't serv't, Joseph W. Fabews. ^fcis second "Kinney expedition" is evi dsiitiy but a different phase of its predecessor, proposing as it does to import into Nioarpguo armei nominal colonists from ouroities against her consent, as declared by her accredited rep resentative to this Government. Mr. Fabens is, we presume, the first gentleman in his offi. cial position who has ever boldly assumed the right to manage his country's relations to a f'Toign Minister. It would exceedingly gratify the curiosity of the aborigines here, if Mr Fabena would make public his authority to furnish information as to how Mr. Mareoleta regarded in his official capacity at Wash ington, which he offers to do. Commodore Vanderbilt?Mr. Corntlius \ anderbilt, of New York, is too much of a man. we take it for granted, to be pleased with the Barnumiaation to which he has been sub jeoted in fixing upon him the subriqnet of Commodore, to which he has no sounder real cia^m than Tom Thumb has to that of '? Gen eral, by which he is now (through Barnnm's he'p) so widely known. A title so bestowed takes away from, rather than adds to, the dig nity and standing of auoh a man as Cornelius \ anderbilt, and, it strikes us, should be re polled by him with indignation, as persona of g'K i sense and contempt for humbug are prone to c.'ass it aide by with tho " General '' that alw^ya precedes the name of Tom Thumb on ihe show bills. C .lifornia Potatoes ?About one year ago the agricultural branch of the Patent Office received specimens of California Irish pota toes, some of them weighing 6i pounds each They were carefully cultivated by Dr Page of this city, and strange as it may seem, the tubers they produced were not larger than pigeons' eggs These tubers have been sent to 'he Governor of the United States Military Asylum in this District for further experiment. A fact with reference to the Irish potatoes is not generally known and understood?that is, that when brought from distant parts of the globe and cultivated in a soil and climate not like those from which it is brought, the pro duet is greatly diminished in site. But when cultivated the seoond and tLixd year it will increase in siie and often improve in quality Land Titlea in our Comniry, which wore Derived from the Authorities of Great Bri ttle, Prance and *pain ?By the act ef the 17th of June, 1844, Congress revived and ex tended the law of 28th May, 1824, authorlting the adjustment b y the Courts of land titles in LduIsUu* Missouri, Arkansas, Mia.isaippi, and Alabama ; and a large number of titles some of them cf immense extent, have been acted upon under these laws Enquiries ara often made a? to the effcct of a decree of con firmation on these foreign titles where there hid been prior sales, donations or grants We therefore append, f;r the information of all conoerned, tho 11th section of the said aot of 1824 : I hat if in any case it should ao happen that the landa. tenements, or hereditamenta, decreed to any elaimant, under the provisions of this act shall have bees sold by the United H:ales, or otherwise disposed of, or if the same shall not have been heretofore located, in each and every sueh case it shall and may be law. fcl for the party interested to enter, after the ???me shall have been offered at public sale, the ike quantity ot land in parcels, conformable to sectional divisions, in any land office in the Siate ol Missouri, (extended to the States abo . e mentioned bv the act of 1844 ;] and if it should so happen that in making such entries there should remain in the hands of the en terer a fractional excess of acres, of less num ber than the smalleot sectional divisions au thorised by law to be sold, it shall and may k? lawful for the party interested to enter, in virtue of such fractional exoess, the quantity of one-half quarter section upon paying one dollar and twenty-five cents for each aore con tained in such half seotion over and above the fractional eccess to which he may be en titled by such confirmation." The Proposed Hew Custom House in Alex andria, Va. ? Ihe commissioners appointed to receive proposals for the sale of a site for the new Custom Uomse and Post Office, to be built in Alexandria, \a., have made their report. Fourteen locations were offered, as follows: No. 1?on the northwest corner of King and Columbus street. Ho. *?on the southwest corner ef King and Columbus street. No. 3? on the southeast comer of Prince and St. Asaj,h streets. No. 4?on northeast corner of ace and St. Asaph streets.

No ?-onthe north west corner of Priaoe and Royal streets. No 10?on southwest eonwr of Cimtron md Royal streets No. 11?oB Roy*], between Prince and Duke streets. No. 12?on south east corner of Prince and Royal streets. No. 13?on northeast corner of Fairfax and Duke streets. No. 14?on the southeast corner of Fair^x and Queen streets. We presume that the selection will hardly be made for some months to oome. The Brig Porpoise ?Parties in this city have advices from the Vinoennes, at Hong | Kong, China, to the 15th of February. Lieut enant John Rogers, now commanding the Behring Straits Surveying Expedition, writes that his ship, the Vincennee, parted from the Porpoise on the 21st of September last in a gale of wind between Formosa and China, just to the northward and westward of the iescadores, since whioh time she has not been heard of There is a possibility, he thinks, that the Porpoise may have put on to some d:?tant and isolated Island for repairs. The carpenter of the Vineennes who repaired the Porpoise ont there, states that she was strong and staunch Her long oareer in the navy proved her to be a good sea boat. Her officers were more than ordinarily skillful in their profession. The Sound Dues ?The following translation j roade for us by a friend from a Berlin journal (of the 25th ult.,) received by the last steamer eubbtaniiates our declaration made sometime sii.ee, that "Observer," or the Intelligencer, greatly misapprehends the facts involved in the Sound Dues question in fanoying that Prussia is with Denmark rather than with the United States, upon it: '?The demands for the abolition of the Sound Dues are daily renowed by the commercial worlJ and in the Chambers; but " the tide in tbo affairs ?f Prussia" and its interests is yet too adverse to admit of their fulfilment. The S >und Dues continue in spite of all our peti. tions in order to keep Denmark in a state of f .1 vency with its foreign creditors and to keep down Prussian navigation in the Baltic In the year 1853, 3,463 Prussian vessels had to j>ay 126,252 Prussian dollars for ship dues, to which sum 173,150 dollars are to be added for tho Ir.vj of time sustained by clearance Of I the whole amount, however, only 22 042 Thaler' cr Prussian dollars got into the Danish trea * jry. so that Prussian ship-owners had to con tribute almost fourteen fold in order to make up the entire amount When the commission ('{the Second Chamber debated the proposi tion of the Deputy vs. Langer, the organ of I ihe Government declared that Prussia had never aoknowleged a so called sovereign right I of Denmark to the Sound toll, nor criven ut terance of any such declaration in the treaties of 1816 and 1816; but that then, as at present, there was no prospect for the abolition of the Slid duej?the less so as according to the view of the Government the Sound dues in question had been made use of by France in two direc tions, vii: Towards Prussia as towards Den mark as a political means of effecting the ac cession to the alliance of the Maritime powers. To Denmark is promised the guaranty of the ontinuation of the Sound dues, and for that she (Denmark) is required to give up her neutrality." 1 The U. 8.

He and his frieuds around him, however, believe that he is slowly rejovering from the effect of his paralysis.
