The point of it ia this:?In Troy, N Y , ashott time since, a fine Newfoundland dog, tUat bad been left in a store over night, was found the next morning laboring to subdue a fire burn ing through the floor. A spot three or four feet square had burned through, and the dog had poured a pail of water down the hole. How long the noble fellow had stood sentinel and fought down the advanced flames, can only be conjectured?it must have been seve ral hours. His feet, legs and mouth were badly burned, and it is feared that he is seri. ously injured internally by inhaling the hot air. Cj^"" Somebody has said, and a great many people put faith in the saying, that 44 We ought always to believe less than we are told.'' This may be a safe maxim for general use, but when a woman entrusts you, in confi dence. of course, with her age, you may al ways believe a great deal more than yon are told, Asothbr Ewslisb Toe nit m tbk Ckitbd Statu.?Lord Simmer Frank Cropley, Esq , an extensive Eugliab carpet manufacturer, and a miabir of Parliament, visited this country, and, on his return, delivered a lac tare before hisconatituente, firing an acoount of bia travels over aiz thousand milee of tbe American oontinent. lie deecribea this city aud says: " After riaitingtbe Smithsonian Institution which eontaina a good library, a museum, and a aplendid lecture room, we riaited the cap ital, remarkably well situated upon an em inence, commanding a full view of the eity and suburbs, and to which they are adding two extensive winga, all of white marble exterior. The interior, however, although affording much more accommodation to visiters an 1 stranger?, (who may go and take their seat* without asking permission,) yet aa a whole is very inferior to our palace at Westmin ater- From this plaee we want to the Preai dent's house, with a letter of introduction from one of bis relatives After pasair.g through many splendidly furnished room* wo entered the reoeption room, where the Presi dent soon joined us, when we eonversed up n various subjects for about a quarter of an hour. Amongat other things we touched upoa State fairs, American traveling, and war. U pon the latter subject the Preiident remarked that their country was a great contrast to ours ; that to keep up a large standing army and navy *?? contrary to the whole spirit of their constitution; and if, unhappily, they ahould ever hare misfortune to be at war, they would suffer muck at first, but it was the opinion of their people that by adopting this plan they were really far better prepared for peace or war than by taking the opposite course lie further said, that by having all their available labor profitably employed, in creasing the capital of the country, and kec- - ing the taxatien light, they were at any rate, as a nation, providing themaelves with the ainewsofwar; and if ever they should have the misfortune of being placed in a positl .a out of which there was no other honorable es cape, they relied upon the indomitable enter prise of tneir countrymen to defend their owu land. In this opinion I moat thoroughly coin cided as it respects America, however wise or unwise such a course may be for other coun tries differently situated." Methodist Gbreral CoKrcRExca.? Methodist General Conference, which com prises delegations from all the Annual Con ferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church, will assemble at Indianapolis on the 1st of May next The Indianapolis Sentinel furn ishes the following items relating to the na ture and objects of this powerful ecclesiastical body: The whole Church North, which include* the Baltimore Conference, the Conference of Delaware, and a part of Virginia, and all the Northern, Eastern and Northeastern State*, are within its jurisdiction. It convenes only every fourth year. The number of regular delegates will be about 230, besides irregular, or visiting dele gates from England, Canada, Ac , which will probably swell it to about 2a0. Seven Bishops are expected to be in atten denco, and probably a large number of lay visiters. The Journal adds the following The interesting question of slavery, in re lation to church membership, has already been settled by the Methodist Church. That que? tion will have no especial bearing upon tho proceedings of the approaohing Conference, any further than their slight connection with the Methodist Epiaoopal Church, Seuth, is con cerned. The division in the Church resulted in suit, for the division of the Church property in the Bx>k Concerns at New York and Cincinnati. The Soath gaining the suit in it* major points Commissioners were appointed by the two branches respectively, to arrange the mattera of division. These Commiaioners on the part of the Northern Church, are to inoet here at some time during the session of the quad rennial Conference to make a final adjustment of their acts in the disposal of the Cfcnr :h property The revision of the Discipline will be dis cussed in reference to several proposed alter ations and amendments It wiil in all likeli hood, be somewhat changed inaeveral respects from its present form These amendment.* relite only to Church government, and the character, individually, of the membership. No points of doctrine will be agitated. The last session of this body was held in Boston. That Box ?There has been considerable excitement about a box. aaid to oontiin ??munitions of war," which, it has been aileg ei, somebody attempted to smugg'e on bo?rd tho Orizaba, either to blow up the ship, Or to afford aid and comfort to one of the eonteud ing parties on the Isthmus. Having already published something on the subject, wc may as well finish the stery. We have before us the original of a letter, written by Mr. Baird. of the Smithsonian Institute, to Mr. J. W. Raymond, of the Pacific Mail Steamship Co , asking him to ship a box of '-arsenic, Ac," out to Mr. Wright, in New Granada, who ia engaged in preparing specimens of birds and insects for the collection at Washington Mr. Kaymofid applied for the shipment of the box per Orizaba, and specified it as a box of ar senic,?the "Ac." not having attraoted his attention As birds must first be killed be fore they can be "preserved," the munitions of war were added, which gave to contents of the box their contraband charaoter. It is probable that the attention of the Government tias been called to this desperate attempt to introdace a magazine into Central America, and as a matter of publis interest, we there fore subjoin a literal oopy of the '-contents of the box," from a paper which was enclosed therewith. Cmiisii of tkt Box.

On the whole, notwith standing the disappointment of the Instituto at the miscarriage of their shipment, the in habitants of New Granada must breathe moro freely when they learn that this box has been detained at home. Pbettv Good?Bct Wa Don'r Bblibvb ir. An affected lady about to be married in a place not over four hundred miles off, went to look at some furniture. She wished t<> have a piece of furniture to set in a corner of tho parlor, upon which to place books and curi osities. She saw several but they did not suit. It seems she could not explain whet she wanted. Finally she said : *' Mister, have vou got any with aiudtt trowstrs in them 7 " With what In ejaculated the surprised dealer in veneered cherry, Ac., "with what ia?" " With undertrow-trow-troweera in them." " And what the deuoe, madam, would yoa do with under-trvwsers in a piece of furniture like that?" "Why, to put shells and other curiositie' in." " Ah 1 oh ! hem! Ton mean drmwrt, eh * Why didn't you say ?o? Walk up stairs, ma'am " The lady collapsed, and a footman placed her in an open chariot quicker'n iaah.
