TOW" y Atlas, March ST.) The water attained lb high?t poiat tk<* morning, ui I aew gradually going dawn again.

Tho fraabat ia vary high, m l wa ara hourly expecting intelligence of diaaatera up i?ar by tha flood, and an overflow of a portion of our ity ia feared While anxioualy awaiting intolliganco, wa will iut rova tho time by giving a view of the poaitioa of tha ivar la at evening. Tbo river, extending from a mile ibove tha city to nine milee below, ia filled with solid cs twentv iocboa thick, and apparently aa firm aa in mid rintar. During all thla distance the water is compare (lively sluggish. About a mile above tha city, at Treat'i (Balls, ia the first jam of ice. which flowa tha water back |fbr several faat in height. Tha next Jam ia at Eddington I Band, about four miles above tho city. This jam flows I the water back as high aa the top of the dam at tha City ?Mills, and tha water now stand* up to tho bod of those ? mills, and it is thought it is quit* impossible they can latand Between the City Mills and Lower Stillwater, is Ian enormous jam, tke jam. which haa flowed tho water (back over tha top* of soma houses on the banks of tho (river, and caused tb* Bacon mills, supposed the safest (of any on tbo river, to crumble and bend up and float (The damage cannot now be estimated. The people liv ling in that vicinity have been driven from their homes, land tha people on the hank* of the river below the jam lwer? yesterday making their escape, fearing its approach. The great jam in peering Oldtown caused much alarm id some damage. The danger is supposed to bo passed it that place,unless there shall be an uncommon ruth of so from above, which mav not reasonably be expected, xcept perhaps, from flunkhaza and Olamon, where tha e is very firm, but which msy be floated out by the gh freshet, and which, it is fssrsd, may take place - "ie jam in passing Great Works did but little damage the mills, but took off a bridge, and created alarm. At t'llwater great loss occurs. Tbisigm is hourly expect pd to break away, and come ruining down. 8hould it lo so before the river below is cleared, tha City Mills Bust go, and tha damage and lass be very great, as the ants of those mills this year exceed fifteen thousand hollars. They are greatly needed in the business of the keaxon. Should this jam coma down within a day or Iwo and start tha two others onward to this city, in the present stale of the ioo, the overflow would probably bo treat. Should wa receive no further intelligence before go ?g to press, our friends abroad will understand some thing from this of tho present state of tho river, and ?ust await with us for further davelopemants.

It is the "al '"P'emion that the resolution* of Mr. Colquitt , prevsil; that a compromise will be recommended, that the President will bo requested to continue no' jit on*, with that point in view.

Chalmers and Sevier, in- this view, are worthy of especial notice. Mr. Chal mers is as much in the personal confidence of the President as any member of the Senate, scarcely excepting Mr. Haywood. His views of the Presi dent a position are the same. But the speech of JJr;,Stp'r >? still more conclusive of the readiness of the President to a settlement upon the line of forty-nine, without regard to inches ." In the de bate at the opening of the session, upon Gen Case's war resolutions, the position of kr. Sevier was as W? ! ^ M 'hat of the General; he was for " "U"nf a little louder to John Bull than to any body else " Now, we have Mr. Sevier among the staunchest ad vocates of peace, and of an " honorable compro mise. And it was amusing to witness the spas modic exultation of Gen Cass, on the reading^ the President's message recommending a peace ful preparation for war. The General seized upon it as his last plank. He would 44 rather have these recommendations from the President than from the thunder of British cannon." ciearlv indicating that our late minister to France had not abandoned his presentiment of an "inevitable war " But we tell you that upon a treaty of settlement on the basis of the 49th degree, if the vowofGencSl Cass is requisite to its confirmation, Bfe will give it for the treaty, and thus by his own act, obliterate his prophecy of the "inevitable war/'and even with four fifths of the Senate for the treaty, we challenge you that the General will not be found against it. He has never said that it would. While ne has been obedient to the war spirit of the West, he is uncommitted against the peace of the country! At the time of the adoption of Cass's resolutions, on the 16th of January last, ot the democrats ot the Bo ?o V ?fr.?La "compromise" upon the line of 49, Messrs. Calhoun, McDuffie, Westcott, Yuleo, Benton, LewU, Haywood, Speight, and Chalmers, were about all ttiat were positively claimed. Bagby was considered dubious, Colquitt wis not regarded as pledged, Sevier was esteemed as the right h?nd supporter of the Spartans, and from the high and domineering spirit ot the ultras it was fearsd that the 44 orty-nine" men, Calhoun at the head of them, would, before the adjournment, be formally read out of the party, excommunicated and turned over to the whtgs. Now look at the change. Three-fourths of the democrats ot the Senate are in favor of a 44 compromise," and the only positive in exorable 64 40 men, peace or war, are Messrs. Al len, Hannegan and Braese. Personally, Allen is not a fighting man, Breese is a man of peace, and the only warrior, therefore, of the Spartans, is our friend Hannegan; and we know he would fight 'tj1* *.Turk; Mr. Semple, of Illinois, Mr. Atchison, of Missouri Mr. Dickinson, of New York, Mr! Fairfield, ol Maine, Mr. Jennesa and Mr. Atherton, r. Hampshire, are in some sort committed to i but if a treaty upon the 49th degree were sub muted, and its adoption or rejection were decisive of Iieace or war, and the vote of every man of them was required to the confirmation of the compact, ; every man of them would stand up to the "com promise. There may be some doubt about Mr. Dickinson. He may regard hia consistency an of greater consequence to tne world than the preaer* vation of peace; but we cannot believe it The Bill op tux Estimates.?According to the president s special message, the recommendations from the Navy and War Departments to the Naval and Military committees of the Senate, as a peace ful preparation for the probable contingencies of hostilitiesjare made under the sanction of the Ex ecutive. The Secretary of War recommends an addition of fifty thousand men to the army, to be enlisted for one year, which, including rations and pay, would give an aggregate, exclusive of contin ffocies, of fen millions to the ordinary expenses of the army. The Secretary of the Navy, including the ten proposed war steamers, the fitting up old hulks, the erection of tenders, kc, recommends an addition of filty nine vessels to the navy, at an expense for the first year, including the building, arming manning Arc., ol not less than thirty mil! lions ot dollars. Ordnance and ordnance stores for the army, the refitting and strengthening of lortifi cations as suggested, will cover an expenditure of ten millions more; so-that the whole expense ex traordinary, of these most extraordinary recom mendations for a peace establishment, will rise to an aggregate of fifty millions ot dollars. The bill which has just passed the House proposes an addi tion of about 5,000 men to the regular army, which ?. oSaI/S11 in/!re1a8''10 'he army expenses ot about $1 -50,000. I nder the present aspect of things, it is absurd to apprehend that any serious attention will be paid by Congress to the tremendous requi sitions ot the army and navy bureaux. The ten war steamers will tie held in abeyance?the fifty thousand men will not yet be enlisted-while the bill lor the increase of the regular army, from the House, will, we expect, meet with more decided favor. We do not wonder that the estimates of the bureaux were suppressed from publication by the Senate. Father Ritchie Voted Down.?Father Ritchie, through the organ, having lately read to the Senate a reprimand agaiust adjourning over on Thursday and certain Senators regarding Father Ritchie ra ther as Printer to the Senate than as dictator, voted an adjournment over from yesterday,under the ayea and noes. We are told that a Senator from the South, of the church, but who has no idea that bather Ritchie shall become the shepherd's dog over the flock, being absent, but having requested to be sent lor in case of a vote to adjourn over, came in upon the call, and demanded the ayes and noes, in order to place a rebuke upon the record against the interference of the Executive editor in the no tion of the Senate. The fact is, Father Ritchie must rather follow the action of Congress than expect to dictate to it. The power of the administration, limited to three years, and being of an unequivo cally passive character, is not able to command, through Father Ritchie, the action even of tho House; how much less, then, the cooduct of the Senate, ii|H>n the individual authority of our dear old pap-pah! Gen. Thomas J. Rusk, Senator from Texas.? General Rusk, the associate Senator of Gen. Sam. Houston, from the new State ot Texas, is one of the very finest looking men in the Senate. He stands full six feet, strong, sinewy frame, well pro portioned, and perpendicular. He is about forty five years of age. He is South Carolinian by birth and education. He studied law in that State, and in 1824 removed to Georgia, where, in tho course of a ten years' residence, in practice?the practice of the law?he married. In 1884, he re moved to Nacogdoches, in Texas (the Red River country) where he resumed the practice of his pro fession. In the formation of the provisional go vernment of Texas, in December, 1885, of which David G. Burnet was appointed President, General Rusk was chosen Secretary of War. He was pre sent in this official capacity at the battle of San Ja cinto, April 21st, 1836. At this battle General-Hous ton was wounded early in the actien, and taken of! the field, when Genera! Rusk and Major Wharton headed the charge upon the enemy's entrenchments and carried the day. Subsequent to this victory, General Kusk assumed the command of the army, on its southward march, in the expulaton of the ene my. In the auminsr of '45, he waa chosen Presi dent of a Convention called tor the consideration of the resolutions of annexation, proposed by tha Unit ed States ; and the State having accepted the terms, and having adopted an acceptable constitution, and having been admitted into the family with the clear certificate of a legitimate daughter, General Rusk was elected oae of the Senators to repr-sent the new commonwealth at Washington. General Rusk is a man of family, and of considerable property. He is a cotton planter ol the Red River country. His re sidence is at Nacogdoches. General Hotuton is not vet in. Hit history ia more like achapter of the Arabian Nights than of an American politician. We shall furnish it when he shall report himself to the Senate. Marriaoen at the United States Hotel.?Our house has become famous for its Gretna Green mar riages. During the last summer we had sometimes as many as three of a week. And you may rely upon it, that in all the happy matches, at least, the happy couples become for life the sworn patrons of our landlord. The glorious consummation of tn-ir annexation is something to rememberilor a life time. We could relate some very interesting hair breadth escapes in association with some of these runaway matches,1 anecdote, howeve Branch T.
