TH NO. 5257. European Correspondence. SPAIN. Madrid, ^ept. 30, 1848. iiirult to the American Minister?Apology Demanded from the Spanish Government?The PitKotiations for Cuba?The Insurrections, fyc. fc. We have had a great sensation excited here today, by an outrage ottered to our Hag and the family of our Minister, General Saunders; the eoneequence of which lias been, that he has seat n ppirited note to the government, demanding inFtant apology and reparation. The circumstances were these. The General's lady and two daughters were leaving the door of the embassy, in their carriage, at 2 o'clock this afternoon, to make a visit. Sud. denlv, to their utter surprise and aflright, they saw a body ot gens d'armes approach the carriage, seize the horees, and surround them. A police otlicerunu>liACii /tnmmon/l tlua trnnn uroo nr**a*>n lnm_ self at the door of the carriage, and demanded whether a servant named Fernando were there. This very Fernando was in the act of closing the door of the carriage at the moment; and conscious that the demand was not likely to be for any agreeable purpose, made a single bound, by which he succeeded in projecting his body under the )>ort cochtre of the embassy; a second saltation of the same kind threw him upon the stairs?after which he vanished. The ladies descended from the carriage. A crowd collected around, and all was soon confusion and fright. While this was going on, the General himself came down, and demanded the cause of the row. The police olli;er informed lam that he had a warrant against his servant, whom he came to urrest, and whom he was determined to take away with him. The General replied that fie was not accustomed to receive messages from the government through the police, and asked what offence his servant had committed. This produced nn explanation to t!ie * fleet that, some time before, his servant had been drawn for the army, but had procured a substitute. This substitute had, -it appeared, been shot in Catalonia, und Fernando was no\;- called on by the authorities to replace him. To tlus the General replied by peremptorily refusing to surrender hie servant; whereupon, the police officer declared that he should be under the disagreeable neeessitv of nrderiny the trenHarmes to enter the embassy by force, and extract Fernando from it. The general, who is a tall, dignified Rooking perBon, had his American blood heated by tliis observation, and replied by declaring that he would resist such an outrage, and defied the police. In fact, he told them that they would proceed at their peril. After this warning, the police officer thought better of it, ana withdrew. The General immediately retired to his cabinet, and penned a note to M. Pidal, demanding infctant apology and reparation for the outrage committed against him, refusing peremtorily to Mtrrenderhis servant, and threatening incase of tlie non-comitliance of the government, that he would strike his flag, retire from Spain, and send ihe American sauadron in the Mediterranean to .Barcelona, to ask an explanation. I have nothit% further of any importance, on the negotiation for the purchase of Cuba. 1 doubt whether General Saunders has made much progress in the business. He is not well qualified for such a task. 1 learned yesterday that one of the embassy hafe written a full statement of the matter to the Hon. John M. I3otts, of Virginia, with a view of bringing the purchase of Cuba before Congress, and to procure the aid of popular opinion in the negotiation. I apprehend a strong opi>ositioa f rom tne English government, and Spain may be fearful of acting, without strong manifestations on the part of the I'nited States. General Saunders acd his two daughters were at Cadiz on the 20th inst. A double insurrectionary movement is expected to break out, in a few days. In the northern provinces, by the Carlista and the Progressistas?the former under General Elio, and the latter under General Iriarte. Thev are neither of them expected to succeed, lor want of funds.

Webb, foot of Fifth ftreet. The Tennessee met. sures 1.400 tone, she it 210 feet in length on deck, 33 feet beam, and 22 feet hold. She is to run in connection with the Cherokee, forming a weekly Hue to Savannah. Messrs. Stillmaa. Allen fc Co.. are building the engine. The Steameb Crbmcent City, on her outward pannage benee to New Orleans, did not escape the tremendous gales in which every vessel, then on the coast) suffered damage, and many, not able to withstand the violence of the blows, were entirely lost. It would seem, by the annexed extract of a letter from a passenger. that the main cause of her delay, and the greatest difficulty encountered, was the want of coal, which forced Captain Stoddard to use for fuel every iuliveable article, bulk head, and spars, on board. The vessel withstood the ttorm nobly, having to force her way through head winds, amounting in violenoe to hurricanes, from the moment she left the elty until reaching the Belize, with barely a moment's cessation, and without any serious damage to bull or engine. She arrived on the 16th. and sailed on her return on ike 19th, which is sufficient evidence of her ability and power to brave all weather. Bei.ize, Saturday morning, Oct. 14,1848. 1 take the earliest opportunity of Informing you of my safs arrival here, knowing that you must be getting anxious about the ship Creseent City, as she Is now several days behind her time. If you remember, we commenced our passage in a gale, on the 3d Instant, which continued without cessation until we reached the Belize, and had not been out of New York but a few hours before the passengers were all slpk, owing to the gales we had to stem. When in lat. 28 49, long 80 12, we found ourselves a day behind time; consequently it was Monday, 4 o'clock, P. M.. before we got to Havana. While there, I was Informed that many of the fashionable families kept out of town to avoid danger, on account of the "hurricane expected on the 11th; and. Mire enough, as predicted, it oame upon us the day after we lett, midway between that port and New Orleans, in the Gulf of Mexico; commencing slowly, but gradually inertaalng,from a gale to a hurricane, in ?hioh the vessel had to lay to for about twenty-four hours, during which time the proudest and bravest heart was bowed down in silent sorrow, expecting every coming moment to be their last. I was up and about the whele of the night of the 11th and morning of the 12tb. and talked with pilots and sea oaptains. who numbered together at least a dozen, as passengers on board but none had ever witnessed ?o terrible ft blow, or seen so much danger, if the slightest accident had occurred to the engine, the consequences would have been terrible, for it took all the steaming tower to keep the ship's head to the wind and sea. When in the trough of ihe sea and mounting tbe immente billovs. the water poured over the bntrs and drcks into tbe state rooms. then into the engine and fire rcoms. Tb)>n it was that I gave up, and settled my accounts, for the secend time in my life. I c .lmly placed it chair between the table and forecast, in the cabin, so a* not to be injured by loose furniture rolling about, expecting. every tea that struck her, she wculd either go to pitcef, or (ill. Many a silent prayer was rfTered to Ood to appease the wind, for that only saved us. Another shock, such as I experienced while sitting there, I believe would have revered her. It would seem ns though it was being Uled how much be could stand, and the finishing stroke withheld It however began to euhslde at noon, aud gradually calmed down on the night of the 12th ,\ext morning we bad fresh came for alarm We spoke a vessel bound for Havana, that left Mobile immediately after the hurricane. running fast, with a fair wind, whose captain informed us that we were in lat. 28 15, about 150 miles from the Beli/.e, tlun the nearest port, and only * * >al enough to last ft few hours, with a head wind. Kv?ry rticE of wood, loose spars, and floors of the wheel guards, which were forced up in the hurricane, wi re in requisition. The hatchway wa? opened, and a lew cords of wedging wood, used for stowing, were collected to lei) fpin out tbe coal, which lasted until night came on. Then, was heard sledge hammers and crowbars. tearing down bulkheads between decks, breaking up watercaiks, cutting spars, ho. I then took up my a ktlon in the ml//.en topmast, while others were in tbe fore top, straining our eyes, for hours, in search of lighthouse We at length discovered one, just as the paddle wheels were making their last xtruggle. Rockets were first tired, then the cannon, and turpentine firebrands waved in the air. all algnals of distress, without recognition. Then the lead was hove, but no bottom, and we drifted olT shore when almost within arm's reach of anchorage. We could even see the muddy water of the Mississippi All then was silent detpair We made another attempt to start the engine, which KUioetded, slid in a few moments, brought us witbin anchorage The anchor was then let go Knd, to tbe great Joy of all, found bottom in abiut fifty fathoms ot water At daylight we a ere seen, and a steamer came off and towed us in We are au ngiide cf a ?w d file, taking Is wood to go np to.

Mr. Ritchie, of the Richmond Enquirer, wad vt ry n.uch alarmed for a while at the appearanco of things in favor of Harrison, and the probability of the whigs having carried the State for " old T\p," but the democratic counties of Western Virginia came in unexpectedly in faTor of Van Buren, and when the ! returns showed a clear majority of 1,31*2 for Van Buren' | 1 oTrr Harrison, Mr. Ritchie exclaimed " the citadel is j .-afe '?''the Old Dominion true to the democracy." kc. i ' (.c ; and forthwith he commenced the campaign for the i j succession to Harrison, by hunting up the "resolutions (f ninety-eight,'' and republishing them in the En i ytn'rer. Mr. Ritchie also succeeded, in 1844, in rallying : the democracy against Mr. Clay, so that the State gay* j the heavy majority against him of 5,803. The whigs ' , | of Richmond and''the slashes'' straightway went into ' ] i mourning for the defeat of their favorite, ''Harry of the West," and the ladies of Virginia resolved to erect a monument to his memory. Since then, the Virginia wbigs have been very cautious as to boasting, and have in fact, been as mild as lambs, in their polities. They i have, however, carried the State, by electing a majoj rlty of the Legiilature, or of the lower House, once at J | lenst since 1S44?as they had frequently done before ? t ana *?n tne exception ot the Hon. Mr. Botts, and a I few other ultra whigs. they took early grounil, like j sensible politicians in favor of Gen. Taylor, as the most t available candidate for the Presidency.

We understand that 1 there were about forty abolitionists, and of the number,but two were recognized as ever havingaoted with the democratic party. Verily, free soilism is using up the democracy of Iowa ! " WISCONSIN. The l'otosi lipublican says :?" (Jov.

Jackson, formerly a young whig of the city of New York, thus speaks of tbe newly elected Judge :?"His Honor, Judge Jackson, will proceed to Mineral Point, where he opens, on Monday neit, his first term for Iowa county. Mr Jackson commences his Judgeship decidedly flattering. He has given, we believe, general satisfaction, and elicited nothing but good will ; he promises to meet more than public expectation.''

Two spirited contests took place?one a match for $1,800, three mile heats, to wagon*, (wagon and driver to weigh 350 pounds,) between b. g. Amerieus, andbl. h. Black Hawk; and a contest of mile heats, best I three in five, In harness, for a pur?e-which brought to the post three well known trotters, via.: s. m. Jenny Lind, b. m. Philadelphia, andb. g. Passenger. Tbe match betwesn Amerieus and Black Hawk ha* produced more speculation on the result, from the] time of making the engagement to the decision, than any trotting match this season; and, until tbe completion of the first heat, the blaok horse was the favorite at long odds?100 to 70,100 to 60. and 100 to CO being offered and taken in "stack " up. At the end of the first heat, however, (Amerieus having won it.) he became the favorite, at 1C0 to 40; but at the end of the 1 second beat, financial matter* changed again, and Black Hawk assumed hi* original position in the minds of hi* backer*. The track was in most beautiful order?as level and smooth as the floor of a ball room ?and the state of the atmosphere was much In favor of the horses. The attendance was quite respectable, and everything passed off with perfect decorum. During the progress of the races. Dr. Morrill, in his j balloon, passed over the race course, taking a southeasterly direction.

Dr. Morrill's Account of Ills Jlalloon Ascension. Mk. tun or :? liy request, I hereby present to the public a brief account ot my aerial tour of Monday evening; tbis I do the more cheerfully, as it is the last ascension that I shall have the opportunity of making, this season, from this city, and as I wifh in its connection to refer jo a subject of vast interest to the whole world aerial navigation. It is known that my preparations for thii aerial tour were made for Wednesday of last week; but, on account of the unfavorable state of the weather, it was pcatponed. As the weather continued inclement up to Sunday, and as it is always uncertain at this season. I was fearful that the experiment would fail, or rather that it would not take plaoe at all. from indefinite postponement; and, inconsequence, my reputation as an aeronaut would suffer. But, on viewing the mercury in the barometer, Sunday evening, up to " fair,'' my hopes were excited, and early Monday, upon viewing the beauties of the morning, I went forward joyfully and completed the preparations. The inflation commenced a fittle after one o'clock P. M., and was < ompleted. literally among and under the trees of Vauxhall, without the occurrence of the slightest accident, at the time announced, (quarter past four o'clock)?though I should here remark, (and m:iy it be noted by the proper authorities.) that at one time the deepest apprehensions were excited, by the throwing of stones, oyster shells, fcc., at my balloon, by some malevolent person or persons outside ; some of the former weighed several ounces, and fell not only near the balloon, but near the heads of several spentators. One of these stones, a spent one, struck the silk, but not with sufficient force to do injury. Had one of the largest thro an gone a little farther, and struck the silken bag on the upper region, so near the completion of the inflation, It is easy to see that the experiment must have almost immediately prematurely terminated. Although I am mostly Indebted to the aldermen and officers present, for the staying of such guilty conduct, it is not enough : it is due to the safety of community, that every right-minded person should asslst in having the perpetrators brought to justice. At half past four o'olock, my car having been attached to the aerial vessel, my ballast, parachutes, etc., being aboard?my order to let me rise gradually through the trees, being responded to-after seeing that l should clear everything, 1 cut the rope, and ascended rapidly, (my ascension power being concid?rthlp.\ ftf first tnvtrda tka cAif nnH mm I# annanm/l to many, towards the N. E. I let drop the first parachute while yet over the city, which is described as having made a pleasing appearance in its descent. I bad the usual beautiful view of the aeronaut while over the city: but as I coursed my way upwards, and bad a view or Sandy Hook and the Light Ship, to me ominous mementoes, I found that the current began to carry me towards them. I wa.i now over the outskirts of Brooklyn. After hastily throwing out the other parachute, as I did not care to repeat my visit to Sandy Hook, I commenced discharging gas rapidly. 1 soon fecured a descending motion, and as I fell towards the earth much faster than the parachute. I soon found, to my satisfaction, that my course was eastward over Long ISan l, while I raw the pararhate tar above me, being carried rapidly out towards the ocean. As it must, howexer, in Its descent, haie pocn encountered the westerly current, probably the kitten eas not drowned. At any rate, I had much rather it would go to sea than myself, having quite an antipathy for rait water since my descent, ?eek before la?t. off Sandy Hook I now lourneyed leisurely through the air. along near the earth, over wood, hill and dale descending and ascending at piearure, having in view the plains of Jamaica fer landing. As I pasted the village of that name, I received many pressing Invitations to come down, and among them one to call and take a drink; but. informing tne generous offerer that I was a temperance man. and asking him to 'lead me ?otlnto temptation,'* I was soon out of his hearing, to meet w ith new novelties. The sound of the various noise* heard hy the aeroIMrtvUll within hearing distance of the earth, is most interesting The ordinary laws of acoustics here, of course, remain the same; but the sound, in t? ad of being vibrating and bounding, as on the sur face of the earth, seems to one in the air. as though it came "ail in aheap," if I may be allowed a homely expreesion. As I parsed along, the last three or four miles of my journey, these sound- were very striking; the nolaea of children at :helr play, the braying of animals, the cackling of fowl*, the distant thundering of the cars and carriages, together with the ordinary hum of life, failed not to intranoe my attention. I was now three or four miles beyond the village of Jamaica, sweeping the farms ana flelda, frightening the horree, and other animals, as well as tne geese, hens, tec , causing them all to exerolae. in a remarkable degree, each Ita peculiar organ used in giving alarm. It was alter sun-down, and many persona of both sexes were following me, requesting that I would land among them; when I dropped anohor, intending it should attach Itself to a rail-fence of tne highway In my course. The oord, however, did not unwind from the grappling!, and it passed over without catching, allowing me to drag on the ground, without power to stop, as the wind was now blowing freah. A barn was in my coarse, to pass over which I found It neceeeary to ascend. I was dragged along over the roof, and it was well now that my anchor did not take bald. I soon again oame in contact with the ground, when some persona near by oaught hold of the ropes aad held m? fast J found that I bad been in tit* air about one IERA 5, 1848. hour, and travelled eighteen miles. I returned to New ! < Vork the rame eveuing highly delighted with my i aerial tour. ( 1 intended here to notice the subject of aerial navi- 1 gatioa; but, a* I have already continued tbin deitorip1 UOS beyond my Intention, and designing noon to i I publish a pamphlet in relation thereto, t will merely 1 say that, although the attempts heretofore m?drf lor guiding and propelling balloons in the air h?ve I mostly railed. 1 have recently bad shown mo a plan, , entirely new, which has given me strong hopes of sue- , cewe When we consider the remark of Kranklin. that , j " the balloon Ik a new bore infant, which may become , a mr?," may we not hope, sometime, to be able to | make a voyage through the air to Kurope in thirty- i t I fix or forty-eight-hours ?

The Sun Mutual Insurance Co.?This is an action on a policy of insurance to recover $9,200. The ? plaintiffs effected the policy in question in 1843, at tbe office of the defendants, on tbe ship Jane, of War- ^ j renton, ltbode Island; then about to proceed on a , , whaling voyage to the Northwest Coast of America. I The insurance was effected on the vessel and out! fit; that le to say, f0,000 on the vessel, and t'200 ? on the outfit, add to continue until she returned , l to the home port, with liberty to touoh at several I places to refresh, kc. The vessel started early I in August, 1843. and went direct to the North- ' wert Ciast, where she began to fish, and so con- j I ii&iu' v? UU|IU| kur DuiuU1V1 IliUUUIB. UU UIU B['prUkCU ' ot winter, >be mov J down to the Cotit of California, nnd there commenced what is called, in nautical language, " elephantlng." which means taking sen ele- " ' phants. or seals. These animals produce an oil which | is considered a medium sort between the common I whale oil and the sptrm oil. She continued betwnen , tho Northwest Coast and the Coast of California until ? the fall of 1845. when, she started for the Sandwich , It-lands, to recruit, snd take in fresh provisions, and | arrived there in the latter end of September, with -.900 ' barrels of oil On the Kith of October she left ther* * on the homeward voyage, and has not since been heard J of. The owners waited for a year and four months ' after the time she should have arrived at the home . port, which would be in March, 1846. allowing; five . months for the voyage from the Sandwich Islands to this country ; and in July, 1847, they furnished the 1 , preliminary proefs to the underwriters and required ! them to pay the amount of the policy, which they re luted. The present suit is brought to compel pay- ? ment. The policy of insurance was pot in anl read. The evidence taken, d< hent rite, of a witness who saw her at the Sandwich Island*, on the 16th of October, ' 1845, was also read, to show that she had 2,900 barrels | , of oil on board; that she left there on that day. and appeared to be in good sailing condition. The evi' dence of the captain'* sister was also put In and read, tc ehow that the last they heard of him or his vessel was on the 15th of Octobcr, 1845. at the Sandwich Islands; and that he was expected home early in the spring of 184t'>. The plaintiffs' counsel here closed his case. The first defence set up was, that the proofs adduced were not suffioient to show that the vessel was actual ly lost. A new* paper published at the Sandwich Islands, in the early part of the year 1848, was produced. to show that the Jane was seen and spoken with on the coast of Chill, in the latter end of December, 1845, or beginning of January, 1840, and that a for the purpose of buying oil; and that, while he was on gentleman bad boarded her at a port ?n th^t coast, board, she met with some accident, and sprung aleak, and that .-be afterwards put to sea. The next defence was, that she and her outtit were insured for a whaling voyage, and none other; that she deviated from the palicyin touching at places and ports, and by fishing for or catching seals: none of which were embraced in the policy. Kvidense was produced on the part of the defence to show that the outfit and gear to catch whales were different from that of the outfit and gear used for taking sea elephants or seals, and that, in 1 bunting the latter, vessels had. in most cases, to near the coast, and frequently to get into shallow water, which endangered her safetv and increased the risk. One of the wit neffes. who had been on six voyages, described very minutely the manner of taking seal* on the Coast of Tatagonia. He stated that, in the month of September, the reals leave the water in squads of fifty to a hundred-sometimes more, and icmetimes less?and huddle themselves together on the beach. about five or six feet above high water m*rk. The persons in pursuit of them are, of course, aware ef the time they take to the sund, and are, about that period, hovering on the coast. The first thing they do is to look out for a good roadstead, 1 cr harbor, to moor their vessel When this Is done, they leave three or four of the crew on beard, the remainder going on shore, first taking out the tballop, which is a necessary apparatus to real catching, and bring it, us near as possible, to the scene of their operations. They next bflng out their pots for boiling the blubber, their lances, he. ; these last are made in a particular manner.and 4ifler? nt from those used for lancing whales ; then, they set up a sort of frame house, alter which every man is furnished with a lance, a steel, and three skinning kniv?s. They then commence lancing the seals, and rntetimts kill from 100 to 200 in a dav, on three or four miles of a coast. Some of the males are eighteen l>?t lor g and produce oU0 gallons of oil. The females, which greatly exceed in number the males, and are of sn Inferior sine, produce on an average abont 100 < gallons, when in good condition The sport. If it may so be called, is fometime* ha/arilom The large males ! are very apt to turn cn the per on about to lance th< m. and attempt to bite ; should they succeed, the bite is dangerous I pon one occasion he saw a large male, that measured 1!*>< fret, cach one of the men by 1 the small of the leg, and before he oould be extricated.
