The VWt of Mr. Ptktnhun to En|hnd?Hli Views on ttie Nulean War, uft lUa Inter* Tltw with tbe BrtUib Uuvcrnmant_Ttie KugVU'i Klwtloui, Ac. London, 3d August, 1847. I learn from good authority, that Mr. Pakenham, the British minister at Washington, who has been iu England for some time on leave of absence, has had long and frequent interviews with the government relative to the Mexican war, and the probable issue of that event, and its consequences, on the future policy of the United States. Indeed, I have reason to believe that his visit to England has been for the purpose of giving all the information he possesses on the policy of the United States, to t.ie British government. This information is of so much importance and so various, that it could not be communicated by despatch?hence, hia leave of absence. Of course there is a great deal of mystery in these matters, but <here is every reason to believe that the recent policy of the United 8tates towards Mexico, and its natural tendency, have given great uneasiness to the British government r .l r... ! lor me etuciy u< mcir imuro jiuwcr &u iiunu America, and even for the Went ladies. In this uneasiness they are joined partly by France nnd Spain, ooth these governments baring possessions in the West Indies, that muBt be affected de< ply by the growth and dominion of the Amtrioan republic over Mexico. But for the estrangement between France and England, growing out of th? Moutpensier affair, there is every reason to believe that an European intervention in Mexican affairs would have been attempted?for the hops is very general in diplomatic circles, both in Paris and London, that a monarchy will yet be established in Mexico, as a counterpoise to the republic of the United States. The suddenness of the Mexican war, and its surprising triumphs, have only retarded, not obliterated, these ideas tnong the western powers of Europe. The 1a pid growth and increasing power of the United 9tat?s begin to alarm them; and Mr. Pukenham'H visit to this country has been to give full information, and reoeive new instructions on all the. points, aud on the future diplomacy of England with the United States?a country, which they now believe, will create more trouble and dillioulty to the powers of Europe, than tbey ever dreamed of in the preseut century. The reldtious of the United States with Europe are looked upon contradictory and conflicting? h'-nce their difficulty of management.? la one respect, the commerce &nd trade of the United States arc necessary to the nations of waetern Europe. This can only be enjoyed by peace and friendship. In another view, therepublican progress of the United States?her rapid growth and increasing influence, menace the existing institutions of Europe, and threaten the old balance of power on the western continent ? What policy may spring from these conflicting views and objects, is difficult to tell at this early day; but it is nlready giving great uneasiness to France and England, aud may lead to some indiscreet or unlooked for conduct on their part before a long time shall have elapsed. On one point we may rest assured. Mr. Pakenham will return to the United States with new views and a new policy for the exigencies of n future day. The elections are the principal topics of the day in England. It is now admitted and settled that the new House of Commons will be more troublesome to the aristocracy than any one that baa existed for the last two hundred years?perhaps since the Long Parliament. In spite of moneyed corruption, or landed influence, or of the aristocracy of all kinds, a lnrge accession of the democracy, or ultra radical members, have been returned. One-third nearly of the individuals forming the present ministry have he^n defeated, and both the old parties, whig and tory, are nearly disorganised. It is now said that with the new House of Commonp, neither Russel, Peel, nor any of their oolleagues can carry on the government. This result has astonished all parties; and, coupled with the recent increase ot the popuur leenng in r ranee, in ^wiizeriand, in Italy, and in Germany, begins to open men's mm da to tont remarkable events before the end of the next ten yearn, or next <en million of years?who can tell which I The moat popular man in England, or in Europe, in decidedly the Pope, Pius IX. Only think of this. Operas, not . s masses, are now imported from Koine. I have much to Bay on all these questions when I return home; but at present, and heretofore, I have been principally engaged in collecting information. One thing I have ascertained ?the American missions in Europe are not of much utility to the United States. They ought to be irganized on a much more expensive and important basis, or abolished altogether. In their present condition, they are matters of mere nselessnese. All the European diplomatists treat the American ministers with empty ceremony, or emptier hambug, and laugh at them behind | their backs. Our ministers can learn little of | the real opinions of the different government* to j which thfljr may be accredited?*11 is ceremony, courtesy, find concealment. One can learn more of the sentiments of European governments towards the United State#, by mixing one week with the editors of London and Paris, than by a wbols lifetime with their ministers and diplomatists. The fashionable season has just closed in London west end? and the nobility are celebrating thtir last louritt. The theatres are also approaching iheir latter end?-the Haymarket. has closed, with a speech from Webster, exposing the weakness of the English stage, and the greMtnsss of the Italian and French. In fact, none go to an English play but vul ar and unfashionable peopls. Tnere are two Italian operas, and somttimes two French theatres. They are all the go among the higher classes of society. There are five or six public gardens, which are very wnl attended un warm evenings?besides fancy balls, mat que d bmli, and all sorts of sights. The high aristocracy of England, who live in splendid palaces at the west end, and drive in Hyde : f\uk carriages and bor?e? more magnificent j thtu any flthw In Europe, only patron is# Jenny Lind, Julia Orisi, or M'lle Kachel ?the , Italian opera and French theatre. This is the taste of the day. Why don't some Calf nun, or Stetson, come to London or Paris, and 0|??n a hotel on the American plan? There are fortunes to b? made oat of this idea iu several large cities in Europe?and no mistake. The celebrated pianist, De Meyer, arrived the other day in London. He is in fine health and spirits, and on his way to Vienna. Commodore De Kay, who came over in the Macedonian, was here the other day. He returns in a few weeks. I hear that some of the Italian troupes of London intend to pay a visit to New York Launch of the Steamship United State .? The magnificent steamship United States, whose Him^noinn*. tnnnan. fcp . nnrf ? full Heacrintion of which we gave a short time since, was launched yesterday from the yard of Mr. Wm. H. Webb. The launch was announced to take place at half past three o'clock, and within five minutes after that time the noble vessel was afloat. She glided gracefully into the water and floated like a swan, her symmetrical model and gigantic proportions attracting universal observation and comment As this vessel is intended for the New Orleans trade, her builders spared no pains to have hei draught as light as possible. In this they succeeded perfectly, for when she was towed to Messrs. Secor k Co.'s dock, where she will receive her engines and machinery, she draw only seven and a half feet on an even keel. When we consider the immense size of this vessel, the wonder is that her draught ia so light. With ermachinery, cargo and coal on board, all ready tar 9<?a, it is supposed that she will not draw more than fifteen feet and a half?much lt*os than that of any vessel of hsr tonnage afloat. From all appearance, the United States must be a remarkably stiff vesael?for utter she reacned the middle of tne river and got broadside to the wind, she did not list in the least. Many thousands of persons witnessed the launch; and from the time she left the ways until she was moored at the dock, there were discharges from a cannon, placed on the top of a high derrick on Messrs. Secor's wharf, and bursts of huzzaing from the multitude assembled on the piers, rigging, and houses around. Theatrical and Musical. Park Theatiik ?Air. Anderson's excellencies were admirably pourtrayed last night in his representation of Claud* Alelnotte. There was an honesty, a frankness, a feeling, stamped on every sentiment?it was warm, Impulsive and natural. Hit love is graoeful and persuasive ?that of real life, not of the stage; it is in its eipresslon the language of energy and passion. There Is a peculiar freshness la his manner and conception, a glow that kindles as he dwells on the lines of the poet, rich in the delineation of nature's magic scenes, and with the pencil of imagination' pluturing the feelings of the awakenea heart. This is the secret of his sucoess. He interests you, and throws a spell around the scenes and the characters he pourtrays. He undoubtedly has faults, but you feel no desire to eritloiss?you overlook them, because the beauties for predsmluate?and you are absorbed by the interest he produces ; you forget the aotor in the reality before you. Mrs Jones made an ezoelient Pauline. To-night Mr. Anderson Is to appear as Charles in the11 Elder Brother," always an admirable performance, iuu oi Mtuiici, auu aeoonu omy vo U1? i. iiua?. Bowtm Thutrk.? All who have bad the good fortune to be present at the Bowery Theatre on any night this woek, have been delighted with the entertainment* produoed, and have left It with the opinion that Mr* Shaw Is one of the greatest tragic actresses at present on the stage Her personations of the several characters In which she appearod, were truly artistic and real. Indeed, she stands higher than she ever did. She will appear this evening as Evadne. and we reoommeiid alj who have never seen her in that character to do so this evening. The grand drama of " Jack Sbeppard," which has always been so popular at the Bowery Theatre, will form the after pieoe. A treat is in preparation for the patrons of this theatre. Mrs. Shaw will soon appear in a pity by Knowles1, entitled " Slander, or Love's Disguises " Chatham THtiT?K ?Tbose talented and much admired performers, Mr. and Mrs Brougham, will make their laat appearanoe, and take 4beir benefit at the Chatham theatre this evening. We need not mention the claims which they have on the theatre-going public, nor their merits and acquirements; allaie too well known to need mention at this late day. Suffice It to say. that ttaelr benefit will take place, and that a bill well adapted to draw the largest house of the season. ia act forth for the occasion The evening'* amusements will commence with the ' Turnpike Gate," which will be followed by the ' Robber's Wife," and the whole will conclude with the celebrated and much admired burlesque. "Life In the Clouda." Never wu a belter bill presented at the Chatham, and never was there a more fitting occasion for a good benefit. ciiti.it Garde*.?Bellini's celebrated opera of " Norma," sung by Tedesco last evening, brought to the Castle Garden about two thousand and three hundred persona. The managers, or rather Senor Villariuo, ought to be satisfied with such unprecedented suocemi; his company was certainly talented enough to make Jjiui attract large audienoes. but the stage upon which they perform ia ao small, and the scenery so Innde- < quate to the representation of operas, that this conln not be considered otherwise than a? an experiment Notwithstanding these drawbacks the trial ua? been bappj. l'he music of " Norma" was sung Kith truly admirable taste and skill. The singer, the choraase*, etc., deserved applause of the nudience. Tedeaco, who was indisposed on acoount of a full which happened to her in the street the other evening, sang admirably all her difficult parts, and surpassed herself in the grand aria of "Caata Diva:'' and in the celebrated duo between herself and Adalgiaa, (Hlgtinra Kataeri,) both were perfect, and rendered the difficult muaic of Bellini In a style which delighted the whole audience Hignor Severi, the tenore, in the part of Pollione showed us, at last, what be can do. with his rout-leal aclence and the Invaluable gift he received from nature ? a voice very sweet and accurate. In abort, the whole performance went off in the moat perfect stjle; and Tedeac* being called before the curtain at the end of the play, waa received with ahouta of applause, and prevented with a aplendid bouquet. We must recommend all the opeia goers to furniah themselves with the very valuable libretto of the operM, which seems to ns indispensable for their understanding The nest performance of the llispano Italian company will take pin?e on Tuesday next, and the oharmlng Mlgnorn Caranti dl Vita wUl appear In "La Somnambula The oelebrated Lehman family will appear this evening, together with the excellent English company, and perform one of their best pantomimes "l.ee Molssonneura," together with their astonishing (eats on the tight rope, and principally that ourlous experiment ! tha* PIllH iIILpr." which MllHmil t.ft HI fknil tn ftll iltikfltt who have seen it. the most incredible thing in lhut line.

The UOtb article of the constitution place amouy the powers of the executive authority of tha Union that of dlreoting diplomatic negotiation and concluding treaties of peace, friendship, alliance, truce, federation, armed neutrality, commerce, and every other kind whatsoever; but It says that to grant or to relaue the ratification of any one of these the approbation of the General Congress must first be obtained The executive power is also exclusive, according to the 16th number of the same article, to receive ministers and other agents of foreign powers.* These artioles prove In a manner incontrovertible, that by our constitutional laws, as among other civilised nations, the direotion of foreign relations is entrusted exclusively to the executive; but without conferring on It the power to conclude any thing definitively, or to bind the nation to any thing, without the consent of the legislative body. The sams federal constitution places, among the powers of Congress, that of "approving treaties of peace, of alliance, of friendship, of federation, of armed neutrality, and every other kind whatsoever which the President of the United [Mexican] States may oouolude with foreign powers.'' From all this we come to the conclusion that Congress does not possess the power to entertain, andoannot rightfully

entertain thai communication which the Government of the United States has transmitted with a view to entering Into negotiations for peaoe, and offering to name a minister for this purpose. And If this opinion appeared to us sound aeoordlng to the federal constitution when promulgated as a provisional code, and even since Congress has acquired a augmentation of powers granted to It by the'Plan of the Citadel " aud the ' Ccnvooatoria:"?now that the nation is definitely constituted; [or possesses a definite constitution?ttii tlrjmiiivamrnte coniittutauj now odd ui luo uHoles of the Ht of amendment* declares exprewly that "the power* of the Union are all derived from the constitution and are limited to the simple exercise of the faculties expressly designated in it;'1 now that all public powers most be measured by it in the most rigorous manner, we can tind mo possible objection to our opinion, for any other opinion whatever would involve a violation of the paot to wtaloh we have aworn. Nevertheless we are not blind to the fact that Instead of being a political theory, it has been a sentiment of tho purest, noblest patriotism in its origin, wbich has Interposed so many difficulties in order that upon a subjoct of so vast importance that oourse should bu strictly followed which the commands of the constitution so distinctly mark out Congress, as the faithful representative ot the people, wbo havo been outraged by the most uojuat of all agressions, aud are determined not to oonsent mat an ignominious treaty should secure to our neighbors the poKsexsloa of the territory usurped by them, aud with it the dominion of this continent?terminating at the same time our political ?xl?Unoe In a manner which would not even entitle us to the oompassion of other people?(Congress) has uniformly opposed every thing which should seem to open the way fer a peace, which would at this day be every way ignominious, and it has exercised the most jealous care and precaution to prevent even the remotest danger of such a disaster. The committe participates in these feelings,and would only observe that this constitutional power conferred upon the executive cannot be assailed by us, nor does it afford oocMlon for well founded alarm, nor in flue Is it possible that Congress should itself discharge this duty, i'he management of diplomatic negotiations demands such reserve, so much discussion, an activity so well timed, a system of designs so well prosecuted, that it would be impossible to carry them on with oertainty, if their managtmenc were entrusted to a numerous body. The policy of all nations confirms this truth, and there is no doubt that Cooirress Itself renounced the power 01 negotiation when,in amending our original constitutional pact, it determined that there should be no alteration in the provisions we have oiled, and left them to stand as they were. On the other had,in perfeet oonsUtency with these provisions, the executive oan conclude uotning definitively, it possesses no authority to consummate any arrangement which shall be binding upon the Kepublic; andCongresr very well known that the executive, even in the exercise of its constitutional exclusive faculties, under a representative system, finds itst-lf constrained to pursue suub a course as may be designated by public opimou ami the legislative body. In the position truly strong and respectable which our conslltutiou gives to CougreM, it posscsder abundant peaceful and leg*l resources, without exceeding lis duties, to injure the Interest of the nation 1l whatever manner they may be compromised Kor these reasons, therefore, the majority of the committee cauuot propose any other course than to return to the Government the despatch; and if this report appeal I subscribed by only two members of the committee, it should be borne in mind that our associate sr. Ceballos. who worthily pretides over the committee, but who from hia well known illness is uuaole to cooperate witn us, has authorized us to express his agreemeut with us. and he even offered to subscribe the report which we should prepare expressive of our views, which we conclude with the following proposition: ? With a copy of this report let the despatch returned to th' Government. bt-cau?e in the present situation of the affair, It com- within its cognizance, with the restrictions which are established by the fundumei-t.il code ot the Republic.

We netd bsadly Hay that this report appears to iu> an authoritative declaration on the part of the moat intelligent political party in Mexico in favor of the con Una nnce of the war. It is the declaration of the majority of the prepent Congress, and of the party, oalled Moderados. whloh would prevail in Mexico hut for the inter position of the military. The same Una of argument which ia maintained in the report the RrpubUcano hai strenuously pursued hitherto. We infer from this report that the embraasmenti which have purpoaely been thrown in the way of negoit*. tions. are sanctioned by the intelligent liberal class in Mexico; that thev were expressly designed to guard against the poaaible corruption of their leaders, wbc might be induced to entertain thoughts of a peace. At the report almost in terms alleges, the people have gives expression in the law, not so much to an abetraot theory of government, as to ageneral feeling of Intense nationality?a feeling in favor of the absolute integrity of the Mexican territory at all hazarda. The blind obstinsry of the nation to oppose a peace Is now definitely incur porated in the law The executive has the power by the constitution to negotiate and prepare a treaty for the sanction of Congress. but there la an existing law ol Congr as declai lng.th?t man a traitor to thefoountrywh* shall propose peace The executive must aet thla law at deflauce in tecominendlng a treaty for the sanction of Congress Santa Anna is understood to have demand?d or at leaat expected the repeal of thii law by wbiah liih hands are now tied. Congress haa not yet yielded to his instances nor does he feel hluuelf strong enough to trample the law under his feet. We have then the Hpeciacle of an obatlnate. self willed, superstitious and Ignorant people eBgaged In a war with a powerful foe, mid bouail by the mml solemn sanctions of law a? well iih by tbd evil passions ot their nature, to continue the war till the extermination 01 their enemy or themaelvea ADDITIONAL NEWS FROM SANTA FK. [From the Bt. Louis Republican, Aug. 13 ] Mr. Coulter, who arrived in the Bertrand. from the vlisaourl, furnlahea later and somewhat different detail* in regard to the death of Lieut. Brown and his men ? That officer, with MoClenehan and Quiaen berry, and a Mexican guide, left oamp on the 39th of June,In purxuil of hone* belonging to ( apt. Murine'* company, which had been (tolen the night preriou*, when the camp w?n attacked. They were expeoted to return the next day. but did not, and fears were entertained that they might nave been killed. Un the6th of July, theie suspicion* were realned. a* information waa then reoeived from a vieilean woman, that they had been murdared and llixir bodies burnt. iVlaj Kdmonion, on receiving thia new*, took measure* to avenge their death. He marched with some sixty men and a howltier against the town where the enormities had been committed, and on hia arrival them, about the hour of daybreak, discovered that the inhabitants were flying to the mountain* He commanded them to it top, but as they did not do to, be fired upon them, killlug'six, wounding several other*, and taking forty or Ufty prisouer*. From some of the prisoners it waa ascertained that the bodies of two of the American* were burnt, hut that the body of Lieut Brown, who had tbe emblem of the croas on bl* necfr. and waa lupponed, from this clrcumstauee, to be a Catholic, waa hid in tl? mutin.

The piatoU. bowie knife, Icc belonging to Lieut. Brown were a Lao found, with a number of article* loot In the battle of the 30th May, at the Red River canon. Llent. Brown and his party are ?aid to bar* killed tea Mexican* before they fell, and to hava eon1 iluct.U themselves with great bravery. ; | |Aii xprrHii reached Bagoa on the 0th of July, stating that thirty men of < apt Morin's company?a gracing party, belonging to Lieut Col. Wlllock'n battalion?had been attacked by about two hundred Mexicans, on the Seneoa, eighteen mile* from Fernando Ue Taos. The enemy ruihed upon them, and killed five men and wounded nlue other*, and ->uoceded in capturing all their bom *, tent*, and extra clothing Among the kil'ed were Lieut. Larkin, and privates Owens, Wright, Mason, and Wiiaon. Only sixteen men were left to protect the camp, and they retreated under the bank* of the Seneca, where they maintained their poeition until Capt. Shepherd, of company J, arrived with his men. They then drove off the enemy, with a small Iocs on the American side, and Capt. Shepherd took up his quarter* about a mile from the scene of action. The artillery company under Captain Fischer, and the Missouri mounted companies under Captains Dent and Woodi, all left Santa Fe about the same time?say the tfth of July?and, from the movements of the Mexicans, another attempt to recover possession of the country was expected to take place. Col rrioe had ordered the Immediate concentration of all the troops at Santa Fe? except the command ot Major Edmondson, who was to remain at Las Vegas, with order* to be ready to march at a moment's warning A conflict of authority has takan place at Hanta Fe. On the 4th day of July, an affray occurred, at niihL between a party of Maxioans and Amnioau, In which it is Mid four Maxioans were killed and one American wounded. Col. Pries is said to have caused the arrest f several Mexicans; and thereupon Judge Houghton, of the District Court, Interfered in their behalf Of the result of this interposition, we have no account. The origin of the affray may be safely attributed to a drunken froUc, so characteristic of Col. Frioe's administration of affairs in Santa Ke. From confessions tliat were mads by some of the Mexicans, it would appear that Mexicans, Caniancbes, Apaches and K iawas, were engaged in the light of the Ked River canon, on the 30th of May. Lieut Drown, whose murder by the Mexloans we have announoed above, was a son of Robert T. Brown, of Perry county, in this State. Young MoClenehan was from Bte. Oenevleve; and young QuisenberTy was a volunteer from this county, the son of Mr. J. 8. Quisenberry. The news will fall with a orushlng weight upon his parents? for he was a young man of excellent qualities, and grvatly beloved by those who knew him. His return had been looked for, fur some time, and. trusting that he had escaped from all the dangers of the service in which he had been engaged, we learn that his mother, with all a mother's cate for her children, had prepared his room lor him, even In the moet minute particulars nooessary for bis oomfort. Alas, it is one of the hardships of a state of war, that the best arranged plans are sudden ly marred, and the house of feasting too frequently converted into the house of mourning. SANTA FE. We have obtained an extra from the Jefferson Inquirer offloe. containing the news published bv usyeeterday somewhat more in detail, but essentially th? same The only addition^ item states that a serious affray bad occurred on the night of the 4th of July, at Santa Fe.? Four Mexicans were killed, and one American badly wounded. It Is rumored Col. Price arrested several Mexicans, and the olvil authority had Interfered in their behalf. Law Intelligence. United Statei District Court, August 30.?Before Judge Betts.?JllUn Holmes vs. Asa P. Dodgt? New Praotlce?In this case a bond or stipulation was entered into, that the respondent should appear and abide by all the orders of the Court, interlocutory or final, in the cause; and pay the money awarded by the flual decree, Jto. A final decree was subsequently entered against the respondent, upon which execution issued, aad was returned unsatisfied. Motion was then made by Mr. Alenron Nash, proctor for llbellant,for execution against u? upuMtor. Mr. br.EBE, on behalf of respondent. oppose4 the motion, on the ground that an order to snow cause should have been obtalued and served ou the stipulator, and that this proo eding was irregular. Per Curiam.?Tne practice of the Distriet Court in suoh eases has been well understood and settled, undei the standing rules of the Court (Betts Practice, 27 ) An order of oourse oan be taken after final decres against the principal, that the stipulator fnlfll his stipulation, or show cause In four days why execution should not issue against him; this is to be served on the prectoi of the principal party; and if no cause be shown, a summary decree Is rendered and execution is awarded thereon against the stipulator. (Rule 146.) The rules of the Supreme Court plaoe the prlnoipal and surety on bond or stipulation given in arrests in personam, on the same footing. The engagement is, that the principal purtj shall appear in tbe suit and abide by all the orders oi the Court, interleoutory or fln?l, in the oause, and paj the money awarded oy the final decree rendered therein into Coart; and upon such boud or stipulation, summary process of exeoution mny aud shall i be lsssued against the principal and sureties, to enforce the final decree so rendered. (Rule 3 ) T1i?b? stipulations may be taken by the marshal or before a judge or commissioner?(Rule 3,6 ) in the prei sent case the surety exeouted a bond to the tuari-hal pursutut to the terms of rule 3 of tbe Supreme Court The effect of the boud and remedy upon it must accordingly be determined by the true import of that rule, 11 i seems to me manifest that tbe court designed by tht rule to place the surety precisely in the situatioo of thi principal. Tbe final decree la to be enforced against boil i by sum < ary proce a of execution, aud accordingly Liu method which obtains the proofs* against tbe principal 111 All that run b? r?duirt*d La nrnmiru it. BDuiniii rhaa hum ty alno. As the order to snow cauio Is not grunted ? Ida District Court in cue of the principal, but exrcutiec lit awarded by order of course?the distinction of pruce< dure in that oourt in respect to tbe surety is abrogated by the ruin of the Supreme Court, and one order xh al that Is neoessary. 1 he same award whi h grantsuxi'tu tion on the decree, does so in regard to uli parties, anc as that order may be summary. It of course mui>t be lounded on the decree itself without any iotermed.aU steps or notice. A nummary proceeding imports one l>j direct aotion of the court, and nul<-i? regulated by ftouit condition or qualiieatlon of law will be free of del.?y ami forms?u summary arrest, summary judgments or doore**, are in contemplation of law, Independent of thi cheeks and formalities attendent upon ordinary proceed' ings of like character, so summary execution must bi considered the Immediate award of that process a'tei final decree rendered, and without other reservation that that 1; be dli ected by the oourt. The rule of the Su preme Court la not limited to giving summary executlot as a favor, but is imperative upon all oourts. They an required to issue it against principal and surety to en force the final decree. Tbe iibellant is, aooordlngly now entitled to that process upon the prayer, and h< ought to have taken the order for it with that obtained against the principal, and the award now most be with out costs. . United States Marshal's Office, Aug. 20.?Chargi i of Qrand Larceny.?Charles Thompson, third mate ?: i the packet ship Queen of the West, was arrested tliii morning, under a warrant granted by ?

The woman evidently knew when she was well off, and exhibited not the slightest desire to change a good situation, where she is treat ec kindly, for a very uncertain one. The efforts of theei monomaniacs availed nothing In this Instance, the slavi persisting that she would rather remain where she was We wonld advise these would be nhilanthroDiste to otm flue their effort* to legitimate matters, and commend t( them to avoid being concerned in attempt* to abduci servant* from their owners In thla way.
