A violent storm passed over Philadelphia on the afternoon of the 3d inst., unroofing houses, demolishing chimneys and uprooting many of the trees in the public squares.

A communication in the'Charleston Courier states that the sea for the last ten years has not only been encroaching on the harbors, but has threatened to invade the rice river domains of that section with its salt inundations. The mouths of the Waccamaw and of the Santee have been alike alarmed with its pickling qualities, and the Cooper has suffered underthese unfavorable influences almost to its aources. The right arm of Charleston, yielding some 20,000 tierces of rice for export, is in danger of being lopped oft and one of the most valuable staples, aud the most perfect system of cultivation by irrigation, may be lost to the State, if speedy and effectual measures are not adopted to drive back fhe salts to their natural element, the ocean, and tb restore to the interior refreshing currents iheirj seasonable service in tbe supply of fresh water. tThe General - Synod of the Reformed Pro. testant Dutch Church in North America con vened at Williamsburg, N.

The Louisville Journal, of the 3d inst, says that the genuine plates of the Bank of Kentucky, of the denomination of tens, have recently been stolen, and a large batch of the notes printed of course they will be put in circulation. The theft was managed so adroitly that no clue can be obtained to its discovery, or to lead to the detection of the perpetrator. The plates were stolen from the engraver in Cincinnati. Extinguishing a Fire. Some days since a ves sel arrived at Mobile loaded with lime, which was discovered to bo on fire. The captain was advised to throw his cargo overboard, as it could not be saved, but he determined to try, aud stopping up every crevice with a preparation of cement calmly awaited the result On the 8th the hatches were thrown open and the fire was found to be completely extinguished, and the cargo was but slightly damaged. Death of a ifaval Officer. Tbe Washington Republic, of the 4th inst, publishes a letter from Com. Aulick to the Secretary of the Navy, dated on board the U. S. steam frigate Susquehanna, Macao Roads, March 18th, stating the death of Lieut Benjamin S. Garitt, of the U. S. Navy, late 3d lieutenant of the Marion. He died on the 17th March of disease of the lungs, under which he had been Buffering for several months. His remains were interred in tbe Protestant burying ground at Macao with military honors. fry The Philadelphia Inquirer learns by a letter from Rio de Janeiro that an American, named Reese, who was sometime since tried and acquitted for shooting an Italian, was recently tried for .it a second time, convicted and condemned to twelve years' labor in prison. His counsel have, .however, applied to a superior court, and he has still another chance before it will be necessary to appeal to the Emperor for a pardon. Sweden. The impulse towards emigration to the United States, appears to be working among the Swedes almost aa powerfully as apon their Southern neighbors. The Omtkrhorg HmndeU ock SjofaU Tidning has the following : Emigrants to the United States of North America arrive here almost daily from the interior. It ia now quite common to see a whole train of wagons closely packed with household gear, and children moving through oar streets, followed by the men ud their wives on foot 8oae of theee people have jnat sufficient means to enable them to secure a passage ; others are so poor and dew titute that, to raise the neeeeeary money, they make a compact with better furnished eenl grants, engaging, in return for passage money, to serve with them a certain period aa laborers after their arrival ia America.

WASHINOTON, Jmne 3, 1852. Senate. A message waa received from the President of the United States in reply to a resolution calling for information relative to certain claims upon the Government; also, a report from the Secretary of War, relative to the deepening of the flats of Lake St Clair. A report also was received from the Secretary of the N'avy, stating that the contract for removing the wreck of the Missouri had been completed. Mr. Hale presented a petition from Chemung county, N. Y., setting forth that the fugitive slave law was inhuman, tyrannical and cruel, and praying its repeal. He concluded by nioviug to refer it to tbe Judiciary Committee. On motion of Mr. Mananra. it was laid on tbe table. A very large number of petitions in favor of the nomeateaa Dill were presented from ainerent States. The Missouri railroad bill waa then taken up and the question pending was as to the agree ment to the House amendment Mr. Cooper withdrew his call for the yeas and nays, the amendment was agreed to, and the bill was passed. The Senate took up the bill to aid in the eon struction of a plank road in the State of Miehi gan, and after debate it was ordered to be en grossed. Bills for the relief of Wm. Mooney and Tho mas t lanigan, were severally ordered to be en erosseu. A bill authorizing the Secretary of War to iwue duplicate land warrants in certain cases of loss, was then taken up, and, after a short discus sion, was postponed. It was agreed that when the Senate adjourn it adjourn to meet on Monday next. Mr. Seward moved that the resolution which he submitted on a former day, calling for the cor rewpondence between tbe Secretary of State and the Austrian Minister be taken up, and it was adopted. Tne Senate then adjourned. Affaira la Wasklagton. Correspondence of the Baltimore Sun. Washington, June 3, 1852. The Senate met with a bare quorum. Among those present were the presidential candidates, lien. (J ass, Mr. Hunter, lien. Houston, com Stockton. Mr. Douglas was also present at 12 o'clock, but he was not there when tbe tele eranhic advices beran to come in from Baltimore. Tt was nearly 1 oarlock when the result of the hrst ballot reached tne Senate chamber. Gen. Cass was on the floor, makiua some re marks in defence of the bill granting lands to Michigan fur a railroad, when the result of the firt ballot in the convention was made known in the chamber. Geu. Cass had ura - ed that Michigan had received iess than her fair portion and share of public benefits. Mr. Daw son admitted that Michigan bad been a modest State, but she was now about to take the head of tbe Government aud she would, if she would have patience, soon have the Executive influence in tier laror. " if you win only gun rant ee mat said Gen. Cass, " I will be ranch obliged to vou. Mr. Dawson rejoined that the next telegraphic despatch would come soon over the wires. There were at least thirty or forty petitions to - dav in lavor of the Homestead bill, ana none against il. It is very probable that it will pass the senate. P. S. The second ballot was banded to Gen. Cass in the Senate. He looked grave. There was no " guarantee" in that A failure to gain was a certainty to lose. Cask or Chaplin. The frauds of this run away negro stealer is likely to cost bis friends a very heavy sum of money. It will be remem bered that he avoided trial in Maryland, and that the sureties on his bail bond had to pay up the whole amount nearly twenty thousand dollars, e believe to the State. But he had been first arrested in Washington City, and after his delivery to the agents of the State of Marylaud, appeared in court and gave bail for his forthcoming to be tried there. This bond was also forfeited and paid. The sureties pleaded that Chaplin had never been delivered to them as his bail, and was never in their custody ; and secondly, that they were prevented from obtaiuiug custody of him and surrendering him, by the act of the United States themselves, who, immediately on the execution of the re cognizance, seut him out of the jurisdiction of tbe Criminal Couct of the District of Columbia into the jurisdiction of Maryland, where he was in dieted, imprisoned and detained. It appears they were present in court when he was arraigned, and offered no objection to his transfer to the marshal of Maryland. The question has been brought np in the U. S. Court for the District, and judgment rendered for the United States for the whole amount of the bond, $6,000. That stealing of Mr. Toombs's negro has been a costly business to Abolitionism. Tke Telegrapk.l is now about eight years since the magnetic telegraph was put in opera tion between Washington and Baltimore, its first achievements having consisted in communicating the proceedings of the Democratic convention in Baltimore which nominated James K. Polk, In a year aAerwards the line reached New York, which event and its subsequent extensions, are thus noticed by tbe New York Express of the J'Jth ult : It is iust seven Years this week since the line of telegraph was completed between Washing ton and Aew ork, and rroleasor Morse seut nis first despatch from the federal to the commercial capital of the nonntry. Since tbat time about fourteen thousand miles of telegraphic lines have been put up in the Unjted States, and one - half of these number of miles under the superintendence of Henry O'Reilly, Esq. This fact tells more effectually than words or arguments can of the entfrnrix of those enraged iu this important and generally piosperovs undertaking. Tbe associated press of this city, numbering seven ol tbe leading morning papers, ana oi wnicn we Express is one, pay at least $70,000 a year for news, to tbe varfous lines leading to New York.

An Old Pedestrian. The Fairfax (Va) News has the following account of an extraordinary feat: Mr. John Shield, who is now in his ninety - second year, started from his residence ia this county, on the morning of the 4th inat, and walked all the way to Alexandria in the same day, the distance being foil eighteen miles. On the following day he left Alexandria on his re turn, and after wauiina onwards of a mile dis covered that Ire had forgotten a package belonging to him ; be waa therefore obliged to retrace his steps, and after eeearing the mioaing parcel he again commenced his Journey, aad reached this place early the same - evening. All thing considered, this " round trip" of oar venerable fellow - citizea ia one of the most remarkable feats oa record. Gee. JMaaea, mf rtrrimia. In the Virginia Boaae of Delegates, oa the 83th alt, a reeolotioa waa introduced disproving' of the cood et mf Gov. Johnson ia pardoning the slave Jordan Hatcher, i It waa referred to tbe Connaittse oa comnm of Justice, The A a tec Children. A correspondent of the Boaaon Advertiser, writing from Central America, gives the follow - ing information about the Interesting little dwarb exhibited as the Aztec Children. It will be read with interest, and the Courier says may be relied on as authentic : Their names are Maximo and Bartola Velasquez, the last one is the girl. Maximo being now between nine and ten years old, and Bartola between six and seven. Tbey are no more Aztecs than Mr. Hale is. They were born and brought up, until carried to the 8latea, in the town of J oca (a I, about six leagues from St Miguel. In the beginning of 1850, or latter part of 1849, a contract was made witb the parents by Dr. Trinidad Salazar, for an indefinite length of time, to carry them to the States. He has now the contract, and certificates of baptism, ax. In Grenada he became acquainted with an Ant - nan, whose name is given by the writer, with whom he made a contract for three years, the latter to par all his expenses and those of the children, and receive one - half of the profits. The letter proceeds to state some particulars of a controversy which arose in Jamaica in reference to the holder's right of property, which question came before the authorities of Kingston, aud also of a subsequent controversy at New York, the narrative of which we here omit . There are no tribes of Indians here. They live in all the cities and towns, and have tbe same government as others. The Aztecs are a people passed away, who formerly conquered Mexico, but they came from the north inst ad of ibe south, and never intruded into this country. I said there were no tribes here ; but according to tbe English doctrine, at present there is one called the Mosquito. A immeuse nation, according to English reports, with a king and court, and all the accompaniments of royalty. Bat, according to actual reality, this nation dwindles down to one or two dittle pueblos, comprising in all about eight hundred or one thousand of both sexes, without the least sign of any government monarchical, as tbe alcades are the supreme authority, and tbey are regularly elected by the people, Ac Ifo Accounting for Taste. The Baton Rouge Gazette of the 5th instant tells the following etory : A negro on the plantation of Mrs. Duplantier, who was supposed to be a dirt eater, was fat wasting away, bad become a mere skeleton, and all hope of saving him was given up, when it was found that instead of eating dirt, the negro was eating rags. He would eat his clothes, blankets, and every description of cloth, would aell his rations for old clothes to eat Large pieces of woollen, cottonade, Ac, were taken from him, and we learn since he ha been deprived of tbem that he has become quite strong and healthy He gives no reason for his singular taste, which seems now to have left him. Arabian Liberality. Bayard Tavlor, in a recent letter from the Upper Nile, mentions a large tribe of Arabs there who, he says, recognise the "rights of women" more thoroughly than any other savage people in the world. When a woman among tbem is married, he says her father reserves one fourth of ber life th nr - eforth for ber own use, and the husband is obliged to respect this reservation. Every fourth day she is released from her marriage vow, and if she loves some one else better than her husband, he can dwell in her tent tbat day, obliging the bus - band himself to retire. Their hospitality is such, moreover, that if a stranger visits one of their settlements they furnish him for four days with a bouse and wife. No reproach whatever attaches to the woman on account of thia temporary con nection. 7 The Mobile Register announces that the locomotive which was overturned the other day on the railroad, near tbat place, has been raised and brought to the city, and the breach in tbe road has been repaired. A Spinning ,Lady. European papers state that a girl is now being exhibited in Pans, and there attracted great attention, who possesses the power of turning round on one leg for a space of time, which, were we not assured of the fact by eye - witness, who has just arrived in New York from Havre, we should hesitate to believe possible. On one occasion M'lle Angeline performed three hundred evolutions in a minute I She does not appear at all giddy after the opera tion, and is a remarkably pretty and finely formed person. Her feet are very small, but ol a singu lar muscular development Perhaps the most striking part of the exhibition is where M'lle Angeline fits a circular saw to her waist in order that the visitors may test the force with which she spina by applying pieces of wood to the saw. Her costume is a complete suit of elastic crimson silk, which displays admirably the statuesque proportions of this revolutionary young lady. Serious Charge. The Frederick (Md.) Herald states tbat Dr. F. Beecher, of tbat city, was arrested on the 1st iajet, upon the charge ol having committed an outrage on tbe person of Mrs. Dennis, a married German woman, who resides a few miles west of Frederick. The accused was held to bail in the sum of of $l,500o answer the charge at the next term of the circuit court, am was committed in default of bail. The outrage is alleged to have been committed in tbe office of the doctor, in Frederick, where Mrs. Dennis had called, on Monday last, for the purpose of procuring the medical advice and service of Dr. Becher. A Man Shot. A young man named Parker was shot, and it is supposed mortally wounded, in Chowan county, N. C, on the 30th ult., by another named Stephen Parrish, who is now in jail. It appears that Parrish charged Parker with attempting to invade his matrimonial rights, and ou meeting him, told him he intended to shoot him, and immediately fired. A Church Dedication. St. Anne's (Catholic) Church, in Eighth street. New York, was dedicated on the 1st inst by Bishop O'Connor. Th s was formerly the old Murray street Presbyterian church, and was recently sold to tbe Catbobea Melancholy. Tbe following touching poem commemorates the inbospitality of the weather at the East : The first bird of spring, Attempted to ting. Bat ere l.e tied roonded s note. He fell from tbe imb Abt dead bird was him The music had friz In ha threat Murderers Convinced. Tbe Louisville Journal says that two of tbe desperadoes who murdered Justice Brewer and his wife, last February, ia Greenop county, Ky, have been convicted and sentenced to be hung on the 2Sih of this month. Their names are John Collins and Tamer Clark. Three others remain to be tried. The circumstances of tbese murders, it will be remembered, were, that theee parties went to the premises of Brewer in tbe dead boor of the night, and by making chickens squall, brought tbem out of the boose, when they set oa tbem and beat them te death with eluba. Tbe murdered couple left five children, tbe eldest bat eleven years of age.

Jooroal, of the 29th ult, gireo the following particulars of aa attempt to kidnap a alare la Cincinnati, on the Wednesday previous Mr. Harlan Moore, late of Bath county, Ky., on his way to Texas, having witb him a negro girl, a slave, was on the Telegraph, then moored at the Cincinnati landing, bat ap for Louisville. Lloyd Lewis, James Glbbins, Joan Kinney and others, free negroes of Cincinnati, met at the boat (it would seem by concert) and soon collected an excited crowd, by declaring that the girl in question was free, and that she was aboat to be kidnapped. Finally, Lewis, accompanied by others, went up into tbe cabin to the stateroom of Mr. Moore, demanded possession of the girl, alleging that she waa the child of a Mrs. Williams, a free colored woman of Ciociaaati, and threatened to break ia the door unless it was opened to him. Of course his impudent demand was not complied witb, and he attempted to execute his threat by kicking tbe door. The captain of the Telegraph, fiadiug tbe excitement on the increase, and apprehending serious consequences, cast loose and ran his boai over to thia aide of the river, bringing with him Lewis, Gibbons and Kinney. These persona made do objection, and of their own accord went before Mayor Foley, reiterated the statement that the lirl was free, and demanded an investigation. The demand was prnanptly acceded to by the Mayor. Tbe investigation had not proceeded far, however, before Law la diMeov - ered he was in a bad scrape. Tbe woman Williams, alleged by him to be the mother, was brought in as a witness, and at oaee eisa vowed all knowledge of the girl In fact, not the shadow of a pretext was developed by the teerJmony to justily or mitigate tbe outrageous and bigh - hand - ed conduct of Lewis. The result was, be was held to bsil in tbe sum of $500 to answer tho charge of attempting to take from the pnanesaloo of ber master the negro girl. Tbe evidence against Gibbons and Kinney was not deemed sufficient to warrant their detention, and they were discharged. It was ascertained after the investigation that all of these negroes ware wall armed. A Gawxaous Act. The Baltimore Sun gives the following account of a generous and humane act performed by the late Maryland eommlaslon - Y era to investigate the case of the killing of the fugitive slave at Columbia, Pa. It ia worthy of being recorded t A colored boy named John Johnson, who came to this city from Hanisburg, Pa, a few months ago, was sold or bound out to Mr. Petlierbridge, until twenty - one years of age, for coming iuto Maryland without a pass. His mother raiide every effort for his release, it appears, but failed, until the appointment of Menace. Buchanan and Scott as commissioners to investigate the case of the killing of the fugitive slave at Columbia, when Mr. McAllister, the United States commissioner, interceded with these gentlemen in bis behalf. Messrs, Buchanan and Scott promptly aad generously set about to ascertain the fuels, and assured Mr. McAllister that there was not a man in Maryland wbo would not cheerfully assist in the promotion of justice and humanity in such a case, and that "they were especia ly glad to have this opportunity to show to the people of Pennsylvania that the neoDte of Maryland bad no disposition to interfere with their free people of color, and their great anxiety to produce the moat internal relations Detween urn uovernment and the people of the two States." Thev Immedi ately went ia person to Mr. Petherbridge, wbo willingly gave np the boy on their paying him the amount he gave for him. They then bought him a new suit of clothes, took him to the Har - risburg ears, and placed him in charge of the Hon. John P. Kennedy, who took him on to Har - risbura, aod delivered him to hie mother, whnoe joy knew no bounds au his arrval. The Key stone says : Crsnwiiasnner McAllister lafcsasia the happy mother that .be waa iadehtrd fw her amaat happiness entirely to tbe geaereairy af Maaars.
