TH NO. 5399. The Floods In the- South and West. TBSMKNDOUS DAMAGE IN THI MISSISSIPPI The accounts from the river above are not so favorable to a fall of the waters as we could desire. The Bayou Sara Ledger of last Saturday, says:? "Since our last, the water has constantly been on the inerease, and we can now, without the least exaggeration, add to our water table at least one foot, and reports from above inform us that we have not yet seen the "end of the beginning;" and it we may place any reliance upon the teati uiuuy in our posBcueiun* wo bimu uui uummeucc looking for the beginning of the end till about the middle af next August. We hear daily ef some new breach in ttie levee, on the opposite side of the river, which invariably work* mare or leaa destruction to planters, and from present appearances hereabouts, there can exist but one opinion in relation to still g-eater destruction on the coast." The St. Francisville Chronicle, of the same date, and almost cf the same paint, has the following:? "We witnessed on Monday laat the condition of the coast below. In the upper portiou of the parish of West Baton ltouge, a scene of desolation and distress is presented such as we have never before witnessed. The water from the crevasse just below Waterloo has almost entirely inundated the plantations as far down as Dr. Ira Smith's. Some planters had a portion of their last crop in their sugar houses, which has been materially injured, a large portion of their cistern sugar entirely destroyed. Should the river rise six or eight inches more, the plantations bslow will all be liable to inundation. The water is at present in many placeB at the top ot the old levee, and the fresh earth which has been thrown up on it will not prove sufficiently strong to resist the current in the event t a further rise. We learn that there has been a crevasse 111 me upper pari or me parisn ot rointe Coupee, immediately opposite the plantation oi Mr. Morgan. The grand luvee, it ia apprehended, will give way. Should it do so, there will be no calculating the amount of damages which the country in the interior will sustain.?N. O. Pica yune, March 8. The same paper, of the 9th inst., says:?The ste?mbtat Com. Ferry, which arrived here last night, reports that the levee had caved in six miles above Donaldsouville, opposite Philadelphia Point. Tne crevasse is saia to be from forty to fitty yards in extent, and when the boat passed the water was running through the opening with great velocity. The steamboat Gen. Worth, subsequently arrived, reports a break in the levee about tour miles below Baton Rouge. From all appearances the inundation will do an immense deal of injury to the neighboring plantations. [From ths Cincinnati Commercial, March 18.] BREAK 1M THE MIAMI CANAL. On yesterday meruiug, at 3 o'clock, a break occurred in the Miami Canal, between the corporation line of the city and Poplar street, in Millcreek, at a point w ere the bottom of the canal must be some twenty-five feet higher than the ground on which property stnndB on the west side. The break is eome thirty feet wide, and was sufficient to drain the entire level. It appears that in letting in the water, the embankment was not sufficiently strong to hold the water, the ground or banks being au made, but not of a material sufficiently solid to hold the water, at full head, although this is the second occurrence of the kind. On the occurrence of the break, the water flowed into the level between the canal and WeBtera Row?overflowing Western Row and escaping into Millcreek. through a natural ravine. The property damaged by this break was principally in the level above referred to, and in amount is estimated at $100,000. Gross It Detriek's tallow chandlery, ostlmatod loss at $30,000, principally in tallow and oil. game ton or twelve thousand pounds of oil, be , wore gotten off the surface of tbo water. The water rose to the second story of their extensive buildings. Mr. Moore, soap m-inufeaturer, lost some $10 000. Most of his business stoek was swept away. Hillman, soap manufacturer, and Mr. Veriek, do.; loss largo, but amount not kuown. Samuel Kohn, Solomon Kohn, Charles Kohn, and Mr. Wolf, butohers, loat 160 head of aheep by the overflow, beside* damage to meat and slaughter boose. Mr. Work'a lone la estimated, kv his nnlehluiM at anma 6 000. Mr. Ask?y, tanner?loll large, bat no estimate made. There were other louea, but at the time we visited the epot we could not ascertain the names or amounts. The place overflowed, after the water had stopped running from the canal. diuucd by the middle ot the alternoon, by the culvert passing under Western How. directly opposite the break. We are informed that it is the full determination of the parties injured, to hold the State liable tor the damage they have sustained, and we presume each one will recover in full. Of course a dam will be erected just beyond the break, and boats will'amve there trom Dayton and other points, and depart as usual, the goods being drayea to and trom town. This break can be easily repaired in a week or ten days, provided the right cours be pursued?and so repaired that no further danger need be ieared. Let it be so managed, by all means. TREMENDOUS FRKSIIKT ON THE MAUMEK?PERRYSHURtf AND MAUMEE INUNDATED?TELEGRAPHS ALL DOWN. The high water in the Maumee has carried away the bridge across the river, and with it both telegraph lines The ice is dammed up about half a mile below the bridge, to the height of twenty feet, and another dam two miles below this, nearly as high. There has been considerable damage done to the warehouses and shipping, and at two o'clock yesterday, the water was on the first floor of ths warehouses mPerrysburg; it had not broke away on the Maumee side so as to injure the warehouses, but it was supposed that the ice would soon give way, and it so the boatB and warehouses would be greatly injured. Theraai1) e across in a boat, and all of the stage pass g? i s; but it is very dangerous crossing, as there arc t h quantities of floating ice running. The ice in the t iver is breaking up, and a strong current, but it cauaot do any damage at this point. The Grand Creek bridge, between Toledo and Maumee, went oft yesterday morning while a person was crossing it, but he was not injured. The Delaware bridge, between Toledo and Maumee, on :he river road, will probably go off before night. If it should, it will be impossible to get to Maumee by either of these roads for Bome days. ?Detroit (Mich.) Free Preu. March 8. Later from Yucatan, [Correspondence of the N. O. Cresoent.l, Jan. 10, 1840. Yon may be somewhat eurprised by perceiving from this letter that I am at present in Yucatan. Nevertheless it is true, and I therefore seize this opportunity of informing you of my locality, and ih, tvrnln tkalh^vn IhIwIv trnnnmred here. After the battle of Tihosuco. which occurred on the 25th ult., we remained inactive until the 27lh, when we lelt the town by a road different from that we had taken before. This time our operations were more successful. We captured a town and a large supply of cattle, hogs, corn, honey, iteo. In this engagement, we had not a single man killed oi wounded. After having achieved the object of this expedition, we returned to our headquarters at Tihosuco, where we remained until the 4th oi January, when we commenced our march for this place, (Valladolid,) where we arrived in three days. On the 5th, we had another skirmish with the Indians, and took a small town, besides about thirty prisoners, of whom we hung six, shot three, and brought the balance to this place, which we enteicd very peaceably on the 8th inst. On the 10ih. we went on an expedition, and had a fight, in the course of which nine of our men were wounded. The Yucatecos had six wounded, [n this fight we took two towns, killed about seventy Indians, and wounded one hundred. You may Judge that this was a well contested battle, when I inform you that the Indians resisted us about three hoars. Major McHenry, and Captains Freeland _ and Mace, of your city, have reesigned, and will be in New Orleans in a lew days. I cannot speak in terms of too high commendation ol the conduct of Col. White, and Captains Xobtn, Crane and Young. They deserve the gratitude of the regiment, For the manner in wnich they have treated the men. It is true, we hardly get enough to eat, and have received no clothing, but for these things our officers are net to blame ; they are the fault the government. The Weather and Navioation.?We have a plenty of weather; but an for navigation, that appears just beyond where our imagination reaches at tins time. The weather is spring-like?rather wet?tolerably warm?exceedingly unpleasant; but till it wears the appearance oi an approximation towards the opening of navigation and summer. The lake is full oi ice, which appears to have been broken up, and in some places disconnected and scattered We do not anticipate an early navigation Nothing now indicates it here or above.

He Bays:?Vast numbers of cows are daily met with, m droves of one hundred and upwards, on their way to Kingaton, thers to cross the ice into the United States. Since the ice bridge was formed over the two channels of the St. Lawrence, this trade in cews has been carried on by American traders with much vigor. On the most moderate computation, upwards of two thousand cows have been purchased since Christmas by the American dairymen, between Kingston and this town; and for what I know, as many of these useful animals will be procured and sent across ere the ice season closes. The average price paid is twelve dollars per cow, and none are bought except those between the ages of four and eight years. The buyers are chiefly from the counties of Oneida. Herkimer and Lewis, and some cows are bought for the southern range of counties in the Stats of New York. The opening of the cheese trade with England has given an impetus to the dairymen of New York, and hence the desire to buy all the spare cows of Canada. "It is an ill wind that blows nobody good. The want of New York is the gam of Canada. A few thousand cows will be exchanged for hard cash, here so much wanted; and in the coming spring as mcny calves will be saved from the knife, to make up the deficiency in the fanners' kine yards. Thin want nw wrkcro i? ??t a casual one. Whils the sale of American cheese in England remains profitable, so long will the demand i or cows continue ; and lttherefore behooves the Canadian breeder to be up and stirring, and strive to make the most of the market while it remains sound. The American dealers are buying up other things. Timothy seed is in great demand with them ; and pot and pearl ashes find a ready cash market. Railroad timber is also engaged in great quantities; and altogether the only money now circulating in this section of the country is obtained from the Americans. Did the reciprocity aet prevail, a higher price might be obtained in CaBada; for in that case, the twenty per cent ad valortm now paid to the United States custom houses, would go into the pockets of the sellers. Alabama BnTXirnisx.?From a recent letter from Shelby county, and from a most reliable source, we glean the iollowing interesting particulars in relation to an iron furnace, Arc., situated some four miles south of Columbiana, and about eight miles from the Coosa river, in that'county. The letter says"Our furnace is in full blast, and bids fair to do well. She is operated, as you know, by steam. The boiler is at the top of the stack, where wa control the waste heat, and thereby dispense with the necessity, expense, and use of woca, which is a great aaving to us, and shows that steam can be used in this with more propriety than m any other business. We are mating irom ten io iweive tnouaand pounds ot pig iron per day, and will soon be ready to do any and all sorts of casting. We desfgn, also, the coming summer, to erect a pudling fire, and go at once to making bar iron, which will be more profitable than the cast iron business, especially should any of the contemplated railroads be built. Our ore yields from60 to 60 per cent., and is wholly inexhaustible. Had we means of easy transportation, the business might be extended until halt a million was invested in machinery; but this, with us, is the difficulty. Our only chance is to go down the Coosa in flats. We are now placing our pigs on the river, and will be at Montgomery and Pratt* ville the first tide. Will you, if convenient, say this much te your foundry company." Alabama is abounding in untold licnes. not only in her soil, but in her beds of iron, coal, marble, and all the mineral wealth valuable to any State.?Mm/go* miry (Ala.) Jomrnal, March 7. SiNanr.An Lakb.?About ten miles to the south* et st ot Saratoga springs, N. Y., there is a small lake, well worthy the attention of the curious geolegist. Around it, for a considerable distance, stretches a valley that shows many indications of having once been full ot water, but which has been drained by the bursting of its southern boundary, towards the Mohawk river. In the centre, deeply shaded by woods, lies the present lake, not more than a quarter of a mile ta width, butaboq; three miles in length. Thq ii,ape i? Serpentine, and, though several small Streams empty into it, Its outlet hat never been discovered, very slight changes only are perceptible in the water-mark, even at the period of the spring freshet. No sounding has been made in it yet, although deep sea lines hare been used. The shores ire bold and perpendicular aa, a wall, descending downwards thus to an unknown depth. The mightiest ship that ever floated could touch the shore in any place with safety. Its surface is calm as a mirror, for it is seldom touched by the boisterous wind. The water, though seemingly clear, looks black, from the great depth and the shadow of the trees on the shors. It has nothing of the dish shape usually pertaining to lakes or to seas and oceans. It seems like an immense crevice in the solid crust of the earth's surface, thrown open by a convulsion in nature, as an earthquake, long centuries ago. When our planet was young, it underwent shocks such as would crumble the mountains that now bustle along, and to one of those awful convulsions this curious lake probably owess ttorigin. Nnw HAMrsnins Election.?We have received I * Aiimka* a! vnftirnn A>asm l:? s uunm ? nuii(?nire. containing election intelligence, from which we Satber the following results. There can be no oubt of the election of General Wilaen to Congreas, by a majority el from two to five hundred. The Patriot, which is never liberal in its conceaaions towards whigs, admits his majority will be at least 200. Mr. Tuck is also unquestionably elected in the 1st district, by from five hundred to eight hundred majority. The Patriot also concedes his election. The vote of Exeter has been published erroneously. A letter from a friend in Exeter gives the vote thusTuck,378; Kittredge, 191. As before published, it stood : 298 for Tuck; Kittredge, 191. This places Mr. Tuck 77 better than betoie. General Peaselev and Harry Hibbard (democrats,) aie chosen by large majorities in the two other districts. The delegation will ftand politically in the next Congress as in the last. Mr. Dinrmore is elected Governor by about lour thousand majority. The legislature will be strongly locoloco in both branches ?Hut:<m Altai, Munh 17. RK E MABCH 18, 1849. Law Intelligence.

Singular Divorce Case.?The jnry in the divorce case hare rendered a verdict declaring the marriage of Kate Meadows to John Proctor, both belonging to the atage, null and void, on aceount of a prevleua marriage to another woman having been proved.

Hence ahe brought the writ to obtain a dlvoroe.?New Orleans Picayune, March 9. A Wiij) Woman.?We know not but our reputa" Hon for veracity may sutler Ly the following state' ment; but as we have been laying otl tor the las. two yearB to give it, we think there is no use o waiting any longer. It will require some creduli* ty to believe the story; but we can assure the read' er that what we shall state could be established by the testimonv ot)somc of the oldest aud most respectable citizens of our neighboring county of Jackson. For the last ten years there has Uvea and inhabited the thickets ef the Navidad bottoms in Jackson county, an animal universally believed to be a woman, and though diligent search has frequently been made, not a living soul has ever been able to see it; though on one occasion, several years ago, a party driving cows through the bot torn, came so close upon its camp or dsn, as t< compel it to drop a kind of basket or trunk, whicl upon examination, was found to be a perfect cu riosity, containing a most astonishing variety o: little trinkets, such as pins, needles, kniveB, brush eB, and several articles, whose uses were entirel) unknown, and all of the most ingenious and eX' quisite workmanship^and also a small pocket Bi< ble, with "New York" written in it in a smal beautiful hand-writing, together with twn crima one of which it had stocked?having stolen an old gun barrel from the settlements. The principal reason for believing it to be a woman, arises from its track, which has often been seen, and which resembles exactly that of a small and delicate female. It frequently visits the nejffhhnri*# Sou of nignts fui the i>ui|>oseof picking up such articles as it can lay its hands on?clothing particulaily, of which, it is suppoeed, from the quantity missing iiom time to time, it has enough to set up a respectable millinery shop and clothing store. About a year ago, it went into the house of Sam A. lingers, when he waB absent, opened his medicine chest, took a portion ot all the medicines in it, carefullv putting buck the stoppers, and committing no other damage besides that of taking several articles of clothtug, which, after going to the edge ol the bottom, it uppears to have sorted out, - I u?u ?V * DUUII aiuuito uuiigiug U)JUil & BUCK ilB II did not seem to reuuire. It also came to Mr. Ilodg1 era's place recently and brought back a wooden bowl taken about a year since, and a trace chain that had been missing for eight years. These are but a tithe of the many eccentricities of the man, woman or animal; but they serve as a specimen. So sure are the people on the Navidad that it ts a wild human being, that we understand a reward of forty cows and calves has been offered to any one who would capture it. It is supposed by soma that there was once a man and woman, but that the man had died. How true this conjecture is, we cannot say; but there can hardly be a doubt but a wild man or woman has inhabited the Nat idad Mustang bottoms, near Texana, for many years.? It cannot be a negro, male or female, because the track forbids the conclusion. We incline to think it a Mexican woman ? Victoria (Texan) Advocate March 1. Verv Late from, if Tkue.?We have seen a private letter from Wan Francisco, datedlthe 30thof January, which contains the latest news from the gold region. The writer was a volunteer in Col. Fremont's expedition, and was taken prisoner by the Indians, and retained in captivity nice months?his lite having been spared, and niB liberty finally granted him, as he says, on account of his having been discovered by the indiuns to be a free-mason, of which fraternity, it seems, many of the red men were members. The writer had been very successfully engaged in the gold mines, and had obtained gold enough to satisfy his highest ambition. His statements in respect to the extent of the gold beds and the purity < t the metal, rather exceed the marvellous descriptions which we have heretofore received. He speaks of still further discoveries, and of still richer mines, which might lurnish profitable employment, aa he thinks, for all the young mea in New Esglsnd. He is so confident in respect to the golden promise of the land, that he urgea hia friends nere to go at once to the mines. He speaks also of silver mines, in which he Bays there is M abundance ol ore; but this inferior metal seems to be an object ol minor regard among the fortune hunters. The writer of this letter had left the mines to recruit hia health, and to await more favorable weather tor carrying on operations. lie was at San Francieco, which place he describes as being full to overflowing with persons awaiting the coming spring, to commence or resume operations at the " diggings "?Botton Traveller, March. 16, P.
