We were much amused with the following fprightly contrast Between Italy and England t For all those sinful doings I must tay, That Italy's a pleasant place to me ' Who loved to see the sunshine every day. And vines (not nailed to walls) frem, tree to uvr, Festooa'd, much like the back - scenes of a play, Or melodrama wnicn people nocic to tee, When the first act it ended by a dance, In vineyards copied from the'touth of Fraace 1 like on autumn evenings to ride out - Without bains - (bread to bid mv rroom be sure Ny cloak it round bit middle strapp'd about, because the skies are not the most secure ; I know too, that if stopped upon my route, Where the green alleys wiodingly allure.

'On Wednesday came oo for trial before Mr. Jostle Spencer, the cause' of Trum bull vs. Gibbon, for a libel i damages hud at $ 100,000. This cause baa long excited an un common share of public interest; and the trial was numerously attended. The plaintiff was (he son in - law of the defendant, having, a few year since, married his only daughter, who it now dead j having brought him two children. At the cause it to be formally reported, we shall not attempt to eive a detail that may anticipate the labors of the reporter.' The libel was contained in a printed pamphlet, and consisted of several calumnies, as we are told, for we have not read it, nor heard it read en the trial, against the plaintiff and against bis wife, the defendant' own daughter, charging her with criminal intercourse, both before and after ber marriage, but which be neither attempt ed to prove on the trial, to palliate nor deny, but rested the defence on tbe mere fact of the non - publication of the pamphlet. It was proved that 50 copies were printed, and 5, at least, put into the hands of different persons. The case, then presented, in the language of the judge, an in stance of the most atrocious libel ever beard of in our courts, accompanied with grateness and impiety. The defendant's circumstances were shown to be those of over - grown wealth ; that hit yearly income probably 70,000 dollars. Many expected that the damages would be near ly this sum ; but, although there were some very respectable and high - miuded men on the jury, who would have given a verdict that strongly marked their detestation of the libeller, it seems, there were some of a very different complexion. There was, it is said, a compromise between the highest turn mentioned, $60,000, and the lowest proposed, 50, and eventually the verdict was rendered for f 15,000,; which, although the largest in this country, is far beneath public expectation, and on that will not sensibly be felt by tha defendant. . . Much talent waj shewn on.bota siJe. ' , Counsel for plaintiff, Ogden and Hoffman ; for defendant, Emmet and Griffin. Mr. KingU Speeth en th ffarigalion Act Observing it proposed in one of the Doeton pa - pen to reprint this speech in a pamphlet, we lose no time ta giving th information that such a edition is now working off by Kirk St Jtfer - erut, and will be ready for delivery tomorrow. We should regret to see any other copy of thin .National speech, in a permanent form, than that taken from this pamphlet. Beppo This is the last of Lord Byron's pro ductions, bat though the last, it is certainly one of the most pleasing that ever fell from his pen. The verse is more smooth than the usual style of bis lata poetry ; and although he ma) hay hit readers who prefer metre that depart aa much as possible from rhythm, we must be excused if we ar so unfashionable as to prefer the melody of liquid lines to the harsh unmeasured feet ol ragged prose. An American edition of this little jeu d'espnt has just issued from the press of Messr. Goodrich & Co. Aanuemenii of ffeie - York.

Wor in India From a file of Calcutta paper which we received by the Braganza, it would seem that the war between the Piudarees, in the East Indies, and the British troops, is carried cn with great spirit. Tbe following account of ao obstinate battle, in which 400 of the Pindar ee were slain, is copied from the Calcutta Government Gatelte of February 2G. Our letters from Jawud of the 3d instant, have furnished ns with a particular account of tbe ope ration ai mat place. Jeswunt run bbow, anotucerof some rink to 3cindiah's court, and the head man of the town of Jawud, bad loog been a resident in that part ol aciodtab's temlui - ie, aau consequently had many opportunities of meeting with, and knowing the cniets of toe finJaree.

These guns being opened oo the squadron, the whole diviuoa immediately got under arms, and moved town towards tbe town ; 2 gun of the bone artillery toon arrived to the aid of the quadrou; afew rounds were fired, with such effect that the enemy abandoned their rats, and took refuge in the town.

Th Sepoys evinced much cooluess and determination Tb 'advantages were followed up by the 3d regiment of cavalry under capL IJedges, which cut up numbers of the enemy flying from tbe town. While these operations wer going on, tb enemy' camp N. W. of the town, was not neglected. Two squadrons f the 4th cavalry under captain Ridge, and 3U0 Korullaht nnder lieut. Turner, were directed to keep that camp in view. A soon aa tin ustaenmeot was on - served by the euemy, they opened thir gun on it, but the fire, though well directed, was very distant. This N. W. camp of th Boost's was very strongly situated, and almost entirely sur rounded by ravines, generally Impassable for ca valry. Captain ludge, therclore, resolved to reconnoitre ; this was very ably performed by lieut. Prankliu, assistant quarter master general, who accompanied tbe detachment. Alter much search, under a constant fire from, the enemy's guns, which, however, did no mischief, a place was discovered, at which the cavalry might cross over the ravine, though the passage admitted of only two horses abreast. Capt. KiUgedotermined to attempt this passage. Under the cover of a rising ground, on the opposite side of th ravine, which luckily the enemy bad omitted to occupy. the cavalry gradually formed for th charge ; the enemy' guns played. continually, but unsuc cessfully, though within 100 yard, for their shot struck the rising ground before our tnos had bounded over lliem. In a minutes, all wa rea dy, the cavalry moved forward ; on Hi crest of tlte rising ground, tbey received the last volley, the charge was ordered, and in 2 minutes, they had possession of all th guns and camp of th enemy, whnee golundas, as usoal, behaved with the utmost steadiness, anJ were cut down at their guns, oilier who wer beaten from the guns, fled to the ravines, and still kept up a fire with match locks. Few, however, could escape, 3 or 400 were destroyed, and tit prisoners were oumr rous. Oar lo was small, about 20 casualties, The tquadiou of the 4th cavalry and the 300 R Chilians behaved with their accustomed steadi ness. Ther is a report, that the Pindaree chief, Chectuo, was attacked by a battaliou of infantry, near Ilindiah, on the Nerbuddab, anl that he had lost all (tit baggage, but not many men. 1 ne battalion came on Chetoo camp at night. From the PkilailelpKa tmrican Centinel, ofl June 25. Wc yesterday mentioned the case of a hack ney coachman, who, by leaving but horse ami carriage unattended, whilst he went to tret a drink, in all probability caused the death of a child. We have to - day to record an instance ot the fatal effects that too frequently result from the negligence and rapidity with which drays' and carts are driven through our street. A child of the name of Wilkinson, on Tuesday last, had its thigh broken, hi Watrr - ctreet, by a drayman, whose name we do not recollect lie was brought up before the mayor, and sentenced tr thirty days imprisonment. The disastrous effects of the practice alluded to, occur so frequently, as to call loudly upon the praper authority lor a remedy. From the JTete - Brunsicirk Time.

M. a quantity of gunpowder, upwsed to exceed 100 cwt. exploded in a shed of Mr. Thomas Holt, at tbe west end of Cross street. Two lads, nn ahoat 8 vears old. a son of Mr. John Holt, brother ot th above, the olhtr about 10, son of Mr. Walter Jackson, coopr, playing in me vara, (ell victims to the explosion,; the former being killed outrixbL and the. latter surviving his wounds, in rreat nronv. onlv about an hour. A lady, Mrs. Jules, passing the street at the time, was knocked down, covered with the fragment of the (tied, much (tunned, and injnreri but we were happy ta bear last evening, that she has line recovered, and is out of danger. Pro ((fontiiiiiv na other rjerson was hurt, tliocsh ma ny were in extreme peril. Two small children playing at the sill of a door, escaprd unhurt, though the door or the houtewere burst, open, and tlte window and many articles in the house destroyed. The houses of Messrs. Holts, a house belonging to Mr. Burgess, and a large brick store and stable, improved by Mr. tiatru, give melancholy proof of the force and extent of the explosion. The shed was wholly destroyed, and almost all the windows and part of the furniture in the bouses were torn in pieces. Th youngest of the unfortunate youths was blown nearly twenty fectfrom the place of explosion ; and pieces of bis flefh fouud on the wall of the bouse several feet irom uie grounu. The bodies wer deposited in one of the adjoin - Ids' houses, and though presenting a shocking spectacle, war viewed by inousauus oi ryuia - thizing citizens, seldom nat an evem oi kind occurred, which ha excited more public sensibility and indignation t but we abstain at present from giving publicity to them. Tbe youth, Jackson, we learn, just before he expired, mentioned, that he and hi play fellows were diverting themselves with firing a small gun, near where the run Dowder was concealed. W know of nothing more painfully calculated to impress on the dealers in gunpowder the impor tance of caution, and a strict observance o the laws to, prevent similar calamitous events. Since writing the above, we nave been lokwm - ed, that the powder was taken hum on board a vessel from New - York yesterday forenoon, and was intended to be tent to the magazine in the afternoon. Stammtlert. We have received from capt. Haggens, at Lubec, his certificate of his having seen three sea snakes, or tea moosters, off Mon - began, a mentioned a few days since, with a Ira wing he made of one of them. We shall have the drawing engraved, and present both in the next Ceotinel. W have been informed by a gentleman from Barnstable, C. C. that two vessel hav been fitted at that place, and cleared at. the custom - bouse, to sail immediately in pursuit or the sea - serpent, with the intention of capturing, if pos sible, this tamed enemy of small fish. From the WaihineHn City Gazette, June 23, Mr. Thomas W. Story, of New - York, has lately obtained letters patent from the United States for a machine of his invention, compos ed of natural and mechanical powers, by which he proposes to supercede the Steam Engine. 1 bis machine explodes the proposition that an increase of power is a loss of time. From the Aurora, of June 2j. Steam Boat. The progress of this national discovery, on the western waters, is beyond any thing that could have been conceived nrob&ble ten year ago. Mr. K. Young of Louisv ilk, Kentucky, ba been in this city a few weeks engaging workmen for a treat undertaking of kind and ba entered into contract with Mr. Carter Vendusen of this city, who with the necessary workmen nmonnting to above forty experienced hands, have already set off for Louisville. They bave undertaken to build a steamboat which is to carry between 650 and 700 ton raer chandise, and aflord the usual accommodations of steamboats, on th mo - t complete scale for passengers. Iter keel is to be more than 170 feet ; and she is to be afloat in December next, though at this moment there is not a tree of the timber felled in tbe forest, nor a bolt forged for her works : the eneine alone will cost SO.0O0 dol lart. Mr. Young has some oilier gentlemen, part or whom are in New - Orleans and outers u Lou isville. concerned with him. Louisville, Kentucky, from its paction At the Toot ot the rails or tHuo, and the public spirited improvements goinson there, promises to become the greatest iuiponua between Pittsburg and Orleans. The people interested in the proiperi - ty of Louisville, we snderstand, have considered itas serviog their interests substantially, to see that the charges nt the places of public entertainment shall not be excessive, and that the treatment ofxlrangers shall be generous and good. The pefple of every new settlement, and every old settlement, too, would find a similar course boUi advantageous and pleasant. EOSTON, June 24. From Spain, Br the arrival at quarantine yesterday of brig Hunter, 44 day from Malaga, we learn that tbe American teamen is prison at Malaga had had their trial, but the J Bilge had not passed sentence. It was supposed they would not be hung, but be ent for a ft w years to the Spanish possessions on tbe coast of Barbary. No fctoof had been produced or their having sailed from New - York in th brig Thomas. They were treated by tlte Consul as distressed Anuyi - can seamen, and bad every tfiinz allowed litem necessary to their comfort, by orders from our government. Markets at Malara.

Anry tf the United Slatet.Tho live oak timber from Florida destined for the frames of the new line of battle ships, we are happy to hear, is daily arriving at the several naval depots. It is intimated in the newspapers that two 74s will be built at Philadelphia, one at Washington, one at Norfolk, one nt New - York, one at Boston and one at Porbmnuth.t In the conne of another year therefore the navy of the United States, will show a force, which will protect our trad and shipping from any foreign depredation, or which will be sufficient to punish those who may be inclined to violate our rights. Tha constant employment of our vessels by government upon foreign expeditions, will bave the most beneficial tendency, in educating young officers, and in employing a great number of seamen, without which tbe force of ships is merely nominal power. More probably a 74 and a frigate. t Several of these ships are much advanced in the building, at Norfolk, Washington, New - York, Ac. Additional Appointment, by the lion, the Council of Appointment.

I.) on the j8th inst. the onlv son of Mr. Samuel Pears e, nesrly three years of age. His death was caused by a tmuU beau, which, two days previous, he pot into his mouth, to prevent its being taken from him, when In the act of laughing' it unfortu nately passed into the trachea or vtndpipe If is respiration became considerably obstruct ed, and paroxy sms of spasms and convulsions were produced, so violent as to threaten immediate death ; td these succeeded intervals, ia which he aDbenred to suffer no inconvenience Doctor EldrUlg attended, and proposed the operation of broikhotomy, or the opening of the wind - pine, ,and the extraction of the bean i to . i i ' . i i wnicn ii wa oujrcieu ; worn anuuirr gentleman was called in cdiuultation,' who not agreeing with the attending Surgeon res pectincr the expediency of the operation, it 'ai deferred. On the return of the parox ysms wilb increased violence. Doctor Mackie was requested to attend in consultation, who readily united with Doctor, Kldridge, in recommending the operation, as the only means which could possibly aflord any rvlief. The parents, although the child was then free from diiti - ess, were convinced that he might not survive another paroxysm, to which he was constantly exposed, and therefore, were induced to consent, though reluctantly, thai the operation should be performed ; but be - foe it had been commenced, some of their friends prevailed on them to have it postponed. About two hours after Doctors Eldridtre and Mackie had left the house, the bean passed into the upper part of the wind pipe, and produced a most violent paroxysm, in which tne child expired. . Doctor Eldridge was per mitted to opi - n the wine - pipe, in the lower part of which he found the bean it had probably fallen from tbe the upper, into the lower part of the wind - pipe, after the cessation of the spasm. The tatal termination of this case, it is hoped, will evince the necessity of an immediate operation, in a!I similar unfortunate and digressing circumstances.
