Trepikndois Explosion.?Last evening, about <? o'clock, the schooner Maria Thomas was Iving at Slaughter House Point, upon the opposite side oi the river, discharging her cargo, consisting of" go- j vernment stores from A'eru Cruz, into th<- steam- ' boat Chnlmette, bound to St. Louis, which lay I alongside. Among these stores was a large quantity ol' fixed ammunition. In handling one of the boxes, which contained bombshells, one of the shells, which were each placed in separate compartments of the box, became loose and exploded, i'his set the schooner on lire, and the llames extended to the other boxes containing shells which lay around, causing n continual roar, and succes- 1 sions of explosions. Two men, who were working in the hold of the schooner, whose names we did 1 not learn, were severely injnred?one of them mortally, is is supposed. The steamboat Clialmette as soon as fiossible cut loose from the schooner and drifted down the stream, her guards being at the time on fire, and a large number of boxes containing shells, lying upon her decks. The fire upon the guards occupied the attention of a part of the crew, j while the remainder w ere tumbling the boxes ot shells overboard. During this time there was a 1 continual shower of bulls and pieces of shells raining upon the deck of the steamboat, but happily no one was injured. After abouta quarter of an hour, the grand explosion took place, which tore away the sides and bottom of the schooner, when the wreck sunk. A part of the crews of the schooner and steamboht, in the alarm, jumped overboard. Some of them guined the shore, while others were picked up by the yawl of the steamboat. It is almost miraculous that so few persons were injured with so extensive an explosion of these dangerous articles, and the fire which accompanied it.?iV. O. Pvaywht, ^4?g. 1. Presence or Mind.?There is a little boy, about 11 years old. who is employed in ferrying passengers over the creek in a little boat. On Maturdav. lis lie was engaged in passing over three little girls, probably returning from school, the wind blowing quite fresh at the time, his oar slipped from the scull, and he was landed square upon his back in the water. 1 lis passengers were, of course, much frightened, and, as was most natural, set uj> no inconsiderable of a scream. Hut the little fellow coolly said to them, " Don't be frightened, you shan't be drowned," and away lie swam and secured his oar. He then pulled for the boat, nnd had the presence of mind not to attempt getting in at the side, but swam to the stern and was soon safe aboard, nnd continued his course over, landed his passengers, and returned for others, as unconcerned as if nothing had hupl>ened.?Buffalo C<rm. Adv. The Winnkhagoks.?We are informed by Cnpt. Monfort, of the steamer Senator, that the Winnebagoes, (which tribe are being removed by the agent of the government,) having arrived at what is called the ??aux Hupid, of the Mississippi, one hundred and thirty miles above St. Peter's, were not allowed by the Chipnewas to pass?the latter alleging to the Winnebagoes that the act of Congress, or treaty, by which their lands we e purchased. and their removal authorized, had been rendered nuil, by the non-compliance on the part 01 in** guvrminem tigem wim us provisions. ivi all events the Winncbagoes, from the above or some other cause, had come to a dead halt, and manifested very little inclination to proceed farther, but rather seemed desirous to return 10 their bunting grounds in Wisconsin.?St. I^ouit Rrpvbticau, Aug. 2. Valve of Lawrence.?The valuation of the town of Lawrence, the present year, is $3,688,890, of which $1,1-19,800 is real estate belonging to the Ks-ex Company, the original purchasers of the site, $<>71,Ht)0 real estate of May iSlate Mills, and $.*100,000 real estate of the Atlantic Mills.

Thk Rkwa?o oi Honistv?It I* strange to see with what unmerciful haste the poor innn who is accused of theft, is seized upon by those in authority, and pointed at by those who are not; and it is equally strange to see with what contempt rhu noble principle of honesty is treated, and how poorly it is rewarded. There is an instance at hand, by which, through the honesty of a poor man, a rich man regained the sum of $10000, I which ho had given up as entirely lost, and hut for the honesty of that man would have been forever lost to the rightful owner. On Monday last, a Mr \V . being r.. . i....- J. i ii. ,,m M... nr.. M .street, which he carelessly put into hi* pocket, in a miim11 bundle. lie shortly after went to the store No. 14 Cedar Htrr.e.t. where he sat for some time, iind. while there, the njon.ey by some means got out of his pocket, i and fell upon the tloor, without hi.- knowledge, and . unnoticed by any one in the store at the time Those in the .-tore going out soon after, the por- | tor, a poor man named Need well, commenced sweepinn, a|>d discovering the bundle, pickod it up, I and to hi.- astonishment, discovered that it con tained, to him. the ennrmou sum of ?10.000. Knowing that it did not belong to him. he carefully put it away until he should find the proper owner In the course of the day. Mr W. again called at the store , and related his misfortunes, and stated that he was a ruined man. Needwell was not in the store at the j time; hut going in soon after, heard a portion of the i tale of sorrow, and the sympathy of friends around, i lie knew at once that he had found the man who lost the money, and immediately placed the whole amount in the hands of the loser. It is impossible to describe his astonishment and ecstatic delight at having found his lost treasure, anil being saved from ruin, as be said would have been his fate. From his own statement lie 1 wua again in a condition fur from insolvency, and that til rough the temptless honesty of the poor porter ilut I what was the reward of that honesty ' Did he receive the warm thanks and liberal gift which might have been expected ? Neither ?not ho mite.h as thank you did the nonest man receive; and he did not complain, I because he had the SMisfaction to know that ttie money was again in the possession of the real owner, and he brt'l keen the instrument through which it was returned. Thus Is honesty rewarded' How easily might that money have been kept from him, and probably reduced him to poverty, and yet he was thankless. Surely it was thoughtlessness, and list the result of penurious and narrow.minded appreciation of the recovery of his money and the honesty of him who found it. It is hard to believe that any man can be so lost to gratitude and justice, that lie would intentionally pass unrewarded such principles of right.

Aug. 10?This court was opened to-day by Aldermen Crolius and Stephens, nnd the swearing in of the jury proceeded with for the purpose of sating time, s? as to have all things arranged that the trial of prisoners could b? proceeded with as soon as Judge Daly would arrive, who was engaged in the Court of Common Pleas. There was a good deal of conversation between some of the officials of the court and the city fathers, as to the murdering of the time of so many of our citizens, by having them summoned here as jurors; and that they wore forced to wait en a court that could not proceed with i usiness for want of a Judge. The Recorder was ill, and they all seemed to agree, that his illness was brought on by having to preside at both the Special and General Sessions, a sitting from o'clock, A. M , tin 4 o'clock, l . y. , win too much for a man no advanced in years as the Recorder. That now Judge Dn!y presided hero after leaving tho (Common I'leas. which amount of labor would soon disable him, and that it was too much to require or expect from him One of the .Aldermen suid that ho had been engaged in tho business of the public from S o'clock in tho morning. and that he would not remain any longer than 3 o'clock, in this hot weather in a crowded court. Judge Daly arrived in court at 72 o'clock, and took hi* *?at on the bench. Soon after, Baxter was brought into court. lie is a man of a pale and diyeoted cast of countenance, with a small mark on the left cheek; Ills forehead i* low, his eye is bright, denoting at time* is he glanced furtively aside, Intelligence and cunning; he wore a white linen coat, nnd black neck tie. md had his hair neatly arranged. The District Attor m y applied to have the trial postponed, as he feared they would not be able to get there on the day of the Lrfal. This was opposed by counsel for defendant, but to which the Court acceded. George Thompson was then placed at the bar, charged with an attempt at burglary and petty larceny. The evidence of F.lizabeth , who lives in Fifteenth street, went to show that she went into the yard attached to the house, locking her door. At her returu. she found the door had been broken open, and spoons, which were in a drawer placed ob the bureau, carried off. She then raised an alarm of thieve*, when the prisoner, and another person, ran, hut he was taken. Verdict of an attempt at petty larceny in the second degree. The prisoner was then called up for sentence, hut Mr. Ilusselt, who defended him. mo\ed an arrest of judgment, a* he had been found guilty of an offence not known to the law?an attempt at petty larceny; and, after some discussion, the passing of the(sentence was deferred till to-morrow. when the cose will be argued at length F.dward Lynch whs placed on trial for burglariously entering the pfemiscs in West street, known as the Tot Ash Inspection. The defence was, that he lost some money down through a sky light, and that he had only gone down to see and find it. In the indictment, the premises were laid as being the property of Kdward Cnssfdy. It turned out. in th progress of the case, that there were six partners in the firm; when Mr. 1'enel. counsel for prisoner, took exception to the indictment, and contended it could not be sustained, and requested the Judge to direct an acquittal. Mr McKecn, District Attorney, said that the objection was fatal to the indictment, but that the prisoner would be acquitted, and ho would move his recommitment, with a view to a now trial. Counsel then offered to withdraw the objection and let the case go on its merits to the jury, but to this the attor ney would not consent, and saul that tho cause of the defect in the indictment, was that ha could draw them only according to affidavits made and handed to him, on which to draw up the ease for the prosecution. The prisoner was then acquitted under the direction of the court, but immediately sent back to prison for a new trial. The case of John Dazter was then called on, and being arraigned under a charge of grand laroeny by attempting to pick the pocket of a Mr. Peroet, on the 2i>th of January. 1848. he pleaded not guilty. The swearing of the jury wasproceedad with, but according as each juror came to take his place, Mr. James TV ilradly insisted en their answering if they were prejudiced against the prisoner by the statement which the District Attorney made, on the motion for postponement, that he was a person of infamous character. Some said they were, and some not, and on a Mr. Menel, being called up, he said he placed as much faith in the assertion of the District Attorney, as he did on the statement which counsel generally made In court. This slow process of proceeding wasted an immensity of time, and the jury being at length sworn, counsel on both sides agreed that the jury might be discharged, to meet to-morrow at 11 o'clock, when the trial of the prisoner will be proceeded with. Ctnuotrs Cask.?Alderman Shermer, of this city, niHrrit'd a couple on the'12lli day of April lost, who had become acquainted from boarding at the same house for a few weeks previous The man, wh? called himself James Bartlett, proved to be faithless, for two or three days after the ceremony he absented himself on pretence of going to Trenton, and did not return. One day last week a friend informed the wife that if she wished to see her husband she would tind him on board the New York boat, us he was going to Trenton that afternoon. She was on board the boat before the time of stnrting, and there, sure enough, she recognized the man, as she thought, to whom she had been united in the bonds of matrimony, but to her astonishment, he would not recognize her, and utterly disavowed having ever laid his eyes upon her before. The man appmred perfectly astounded at the claim made upon him, and called upon her tn nrorliiee her reitlficale. This she did. hut lie (Jerned (lint his name Was Bartlett, and insisted that his cognomen was Flanigan. She still persisted in her claim, and while the discussion was going on the hour tor starting came, and the boat was soon gliding ui> the river Upon perceiving tins she became doubly excited, from the fact that she had no money to pay her passage. A number ot young men who sympathized with her distresses, made a subscription sufficient to pay her passage to and from Trenton, and she resolved to follow the chase to that city, keeping the object of her pursuit in close proximity, notwithstanding his exertions to avoid her Upon arriving at Trenton, the accused was taken belore a magistiate; and on the charge being preferred by the feinnle, he was held to bail for u farther hearing.? Yesterday was the day fixed for disposing of the case, ana Alderman Shermer attended tor the purpose of identifying the man he had married to the prosecutrix, but when the accused was shown to the alderman, he was unable to identify Injq, and the mortification of the female was complete, when the employer of the accused, a citizen of Trenton, proved most positively that he could not have been ihe man, as he was residing at Trenton at the i me when the marriage is said to have taken place. The case was therefore dismissed, and the act used honorably d'scharged Tlie prosecutrix was evidently sincere in her belief that the man the accused was the one who had so deeply wrongly tier, out was deceived l>> a similarity of appearance.?Phil />(/grr, A?g !> Movement* In Puiltl,?. oi.r? ]ho\mh*s i . k Ta.i.'.ir?
