We should ae soon aspect his sort o' Know Nothing namosake (without theiiitermedihte R.) of Virginia, to rote against the Democrats on any really important ques t on. Ilia latter, though he hugged the Knew Nothings most affectionately before the elec tion, is far too prudent a man where his per eoual interests are ocnoemed, to feed them on anything more substantial than "s:>ft sawder," after baring used them for the successful ae uomplishment of his temporary ends.

On Thorns?-There certainly exists great curiosity in naval oiicles here, to learn the de cisions of the Naval Reform Board, recently in session here, which is increasing, by-the-by, daily, rather than diminishing. Some, ot course, expect to go out of active servloe. while others look to more rapid pr motion at tae result of the retirement of those who uia^ be, from any oauje whatever, unfit for the proper discharge of any of the varied dutie? appertaining to their several positions in the publio service. Though there cannot fail tc be much disov.tent with the action of thi? B <ard. on the wh'.le, tho country will approve its decisions, whatever they may turn out to be; for they have been performing only a duty long eince prorou iced absolutely neoeassi} for ti.e public interest by public opinion; and, at individual officer', the Board was composed oi gentlemen la ell refpects eijying the cot> fi doiio# of the country, because it is notorfu that nono others are more ecrvioeable, efficient, and capable than themselves.

' Fraudolsnt Attempt upon Insurance Com. panic*. [From the New York Poet.] Alex. H. Petrie was arrested this (Thurs day) morning, by officer Koefe, one of the chiefs aids, on a warrant issued by Mayor Wood. The prisoner is charged with an at tempt to defraud the Qlobe Mutual Insurance Company of this city. It appears that Petrie represented himself as the owner of the steam boat 0. W. P. Cuotis, at that time lying at Washington city, 0. (!., and procured from the company a policy of in*uranoe for 13,500 f jT a riagle trip of the steamboat from Wash ington to New York. Petrie, it is said, represented the steamer to bu see worthy in every particular, and that his intention was to bring her to this port for the purporc of running her to some of the adja cent places. He also obtained policies of in surance in other companies to the amount of $7,600. Petrie. it is further stated, engaged Oapt. VA Bu*kirk to bring the vessel from Washington, and he aooordingly left this city for that pwpo^p. On reaching W shingUn, Captain YanBas kirk discovered that the stenmb* at was unfit lor sea, bting badly burned from her boilers forward, snd three eagiueer* were engaged for threo or four days in getting her in a con dition for the trip. Previously to leaving, hjwtver, Petrie, in an interview with the c ;ptam, st-'tei that he wished and directed Lim (the captain) to run tuo vessel ashore at the moit advantageous point?to run hsr hi^h and dry, so a? to lave her toilers md engine, which, lie said, he could purchase from the underwr ters for little or nothing. Cnptrtin Van Buskirk listened to the propo sition of Petiie. and staited on the trip, but instead ot proceeding toNew York, as direoted, inn thest.amer to Alex.ndr a. some seven cr eight u-iles lioin Wa^.ingtoL, and made her fast to the wh^rf. II j then a arted for this city, and gave information of the transact ion to Lrwi.* Urtgory, President of the Globe In surai.oe Co., who immediately waited upot. the Mayor, and obtained a warrant for the irreet ot' Petrie. MyorWuod had a consultation with Dis trict Attorney Hall about ihe ojsc. and find h g that the prisoner oould not be legally held ,Vy the S ate courts, sent the pa^rs to the Initod Slater District Attornoy, who will ?x utnine the matter immediately.
