She screamed lustily, and all attempts to secure her were made in vain. The villain finally released his hold, and she led and escaped. Her oompanion, after a desperate straggle with the other villain, effected his escape, and ran in a con ties y direction to the one pursued by the young woman. He was considerably frightened, and ran across the oommone ia that neighborhood, with the in tention of taking a circuitous route towsrds the city. He had not proceeded fer, before bo saw a man standing against a fence, and fearing that ho was an accomplice of the aggressors, the young man took another turn In his heedless flight, and became so bewildered, that he did not know exactly where he was going.

Tfte Outbreak at Albany and the Nominations to the State Convention?Bill to Abolith Capital Pun ishment poetponed?Action of the Senate on various Bills.

On my return from a temporary visit at Washing ton, 1 find politics and politicians in a state of fusion here. During my absence the wretched cliques of a gieat party have been at loggerheads, and a terrific rencounter has occurred. Delegates have been nomina ted to the State Convention by these cUquee, without re ference to the great question of constitutional reform. Is these nominations they have looked only at tha exal tation of confederates, and have not been impressed with a sense of the great interests involved in so important a measure as the revision of the constitution of a State, it is to be feared that fanatical and incendiary elements will be thrust into this convention, without patriotism, or honor, or integrity; for whon malevolence and hatred are the prime movers in nominating conventions, the worst results are to be expected A bill to abolish capital punishment, and to substitute ^^^?imprisonment therefor, has been introduced perpetual Into the house by Mr. Titus. At the solicitation of nu morons friends, that gentleman will amend the bill, to the effect that this question may be first submitted to the people, at the next November election, and then ac ted upon by the legislature. The amendment will be 0 fib red in a few days, togethar with a report which I isball send you. ? Among the bills for the relief of the disaffected .ten antry, the bill to abolish distress far rent, has been dis cussed at some length. Senator Spencer is decidedly | opposed to it. The remaining anti-rent bills were made a special order tor to-day, but they were paasad ovar. A bust of Silas Wright, taken in plaster, was exhibited to day in the Executive Chamber. It is very like the gov lernor. I ? At the South, the trees are covered with foliage, and the fields are carpeted with green.

I cannot commend too highly, the address of the officers connected with the railroad from Naw York to Philadelphia -, more particu I lariy, Messrs. Forbes and Gamble. To day in the Senate, Mr. Williams from the Commit tee on Bail roods, reported in favor of the Assembly bill to authorise the construction of the New York and Albany Railroad. The Senate was in oommittee of the whole on the bill to abolish the publication of certain legal notioes; after some debate, the bill was referred to a oommittee to report complete, and the Senate ad journed to 4 P. M. ? In the House, to-day, the bill to authorise the exten sion of the New York and Erie Railroad into Pennsyl I vanh, was debated at length, end finally recommitted to [the Committee with instructions. ? Mr. Fullerton reported in favor of his bill for the re ioraranisetion of the militia. The bill for the relief of I William Baal, involving a claim of some f30,000 against [ the State, was passed in the House. And the House ad journed to 1 P. M. The Senate met at 4 P.

Crsss-rxoasiiwe ?The wound might have been occa sioned by one fall on a projecting stone. Jambs MoGubn examined?I live at No. 113 Mott street; I remember the night on which the occurrence in question took plaee; 1 was standing at the corner of Molt and Hester street; 1 heard a noise, and on looking towards the spot from which it proceeded, I saw a se vere scuffle down the street, about thirty yards off; one of the persons engaged in it soon afterwards fall, when | the other crossed the street and entered a house; 1 then | went to the man who had fallen, raised him up, and per ceiving that his head was severely cut, 1 then assisted in conveying Mr. Corwin to the doctor's office, and then to the 14th ward station house.

Seateno* deferred until Friday morning. Penobscot River?Its Safety?Cause of m Flood.?The recent destructive flood in the Penob ?cot river very naturally occasions surprise, from the fact that the Penobscot|is one of tho safest rivers in tho whole country,as to freshets. No mere water freshet can ever reach a very high point, from the fact of the exten sive meadows bordering the river, and whieh, in ease of high freshets are flowed, sometimes making the river u doxen miles wide at some points. These safety valves are a moat perfect security against destruction by a wa ter freshet The recent flood did not arise from any ex traordinary quantity of water in the river generally, but from the peculiar character and uncommon quantity of the ice. Early in the winter we called the attention to the fact that the river closed with ice when at an uncom monly high point, and that the quantity of anchor-ice was unprecedented and was then gradually filling up lector IT' I the channels of the river and streams. The effect of this was to All the whole river with ice equal to some six or eight feet in thickness, and in some places thirty feet thick, about two feet of it solid ice, and the remainder porous. Through this mass of toe the water of the river has trickled with great difficulty; thettide, usually lour teen feet, rose most of the winter only between three and fouriieet. There has been, then, a fear for the whole winter that there would be trouble in the breaking up of the ice in the spring. The rains in March, after an una eually dry winter, broke up the ice in the river some distance above this city, causing this to Jam up and dam the river, and thus overflow the banks. This, as we have previously shown, was effected at several places on the river, until at length the whole mass reached this vicini ty and produced the great and destructive overflow which has been suffered. It passed off from this city by draining from the foot of the jam down tho river, instead of being borne forward by the force of the accn | muiated back water, and hence so little damage was sustained in the final passage of the ire to the ooean.? No man now living on the river recollects such an in stance of tho formation of the ice ss that of the past winter. We have no historical account of such an in stance, nor is there a trace of traditionary lore upon the snbject. It is a new feature, and one not likely often, if ever, to occur again. No milis or bridges were carried away by the force of the current or by the lateral pres sure of the Ice, but by beinji uplifted on account of the superabundance of water, held like that ia a mill pond. ?Ranger ffii|.

There were mon and boys, and women too, with infants in their arms, who, while they uttered exclamations of pity, still stood and gaxod. Hare and there wore carriages filled with female spectators ; and all ware stretching their necks, standing on tip-too, push ing andjostling each other, that they might get a good sight.

Thay, therefore, determined to halt and send back empty wagons lor mora provisions, and also send back their buliiaa, Rockwall and Rsddlhg, to frighten certain obnoxious individuals sutof Nauvoo. la tho meantime, a revelation, by Orson Hyde, has bean published, in which ha denounces Strangism in tbo strongest manner. It is evident that Smith and Strang are hiving Urn Twalva much trouble ; and if accounts from Nauvoo can be relied on, will soon contend for the mastery in ths Holy City. Many of the teams that re turn from tho camp cross over to tho island, instead of going to the city. This looks suspicious, for this island is the theatre of more viilany than the city itself. There have bean a large number of births in the Mor mon camp. The children nearly all died or wore put to death. Thay ware buried under brush heaps near tha camp.? Wartav Signal, March 36.
