The Latest New, Market Reportd Will ba found under Telegraphic Head. " Nunnery Hill." j la company with our esteemed friend, Thompson Beil, Esq., late Cashier of the Farmer's Deposite Bank, in this city, we rode oat a day or two since, to bis farm, back of Allegheny City, the site formerly known as " Nunnery Hill." unquestionably one of the most beautiful localities in the vicinilj or Pittsburgh. The situation, although elevated, is easy of access, and commands one ol the most delightful views we have ever beheld. For miles around, the eye rests upon as lovely scenery as can be found in the world. Mills and valleys, clothed in emerald garments, stretch out before the view on every side. Allegheny City, with its " magnificent distances," broad commons, pretty residences and large factories, is immediately below. Beyond is the "Iron City," wiji its myriad furnaces,belching forth fire and smoke. Farther on is South Pittsburgh and Birmingham, (ending up endless clouds of moke. Manchester, Lawreuceville, New Troy, Sic. how themselves on either sidein thedistance. The Allegheny river the pellucid, sparkling, delightful Allegheny, flows by joyfully, dancing in the sun beams. Beyond is the turbid Monongahcla, stealing lowly through valleys as rich as the Nile. These two streams soon mingle into the Ohio la belle riviere one of the finest streams in the New World. We cannot but admire the taste of Mr. Bell in purchasing a location so beautiful and healthy free from the noise, smoke and dirt of the city. He has recently had the farm surveyed and laid out in build ing lots of various sizes to suit purchasers. We think they are particularly deserving of the attention of those who are desirous of selecting places for a healthy and quiet retreat out of the city. We have no doubt but that lots of about an acre in size will sell readily, and command a fair price. By the outlay of a little money, and the display of taste and judgment in building, those who make purchases at ' Beavilla," (such is the name given by Mr. Hell to thts property, might secure for themselves llie most desirable country residences in the vicinity of Pittsburgh. James Palzeil, Esq., intends occupying the old mansion house during the present summer; and we certainly admire his good sense in so doirg. Tkt Jitw Organ. Gen. Taylor's new organ, at Washington, The Republic," it is now positively stated, will make its appearance about the middle of June. The "Intel- j ligeocer," and the "Whig," have labored Tiard to! place the present administration in power ; but it is i supposed that the editors of these papers are not cut- licicuily pro slavery in their opinions, to secure the confidence of llie poweis-thal-be. The Pittsburgh j Gazette, end other Federal papers, within the last i four years, assailed President Polk, without stint, because Mr. Ritchie established the Washington Union, with the approbation of the )..te Executive, but that transaction was fair, honorable, above-board, and met the approbation ol ail the parties interested. The establishment ul Messrs. Blair at Rives, the old "Globe," was purchased at a fair price, and these gentlemen retired, leaving to their successors, their subscription lists and good wli. But cow, however, the case is entirely different. The;e is no good reason why General Taylor should endeavor to prostrate the present whig papers at the seal ofCovern-ntent, and build up, with official patronage, a new organ, to be his peculiar mouth piece. As the Gazette is gorged with government patronage, its Edi-tar has not the moral courage to disapprove of the ' actti of bismastcrs at Washington, and am tL nal and American are "living in hope" of receiving a few crumbs from the Executive table, they a!so re main silent as the grave-stones, on this subject. The whig party is now in a truly pitiable condition! Its day of dissolution has arrived! Virginia Legislature. It appears that the gains of the Whigs in the House at last accounts, after deducting those of the Democrats, amount to but two members. The Richmond Enquirer announces that the Democrats will have a majority of ten in the Senate. The Democratic majority in the House last year was 19, New Factory. We lca.ru that the initiatory steps have been taken, by a number of enterprising capitalists, for the erection of another extensive cot ton factory in this city. Between seventy and eighty ! thousands dollars have already been subscribed towards the object. Lancaster Intelligencer . fcsrlt is one of the greatest pleasures of our life, to have it our power to chronicle facts in relation to the prosperity of the country, in every branch of industry especially when we find the Whigs and their natural allies the conservatives, constantly endeavoring to create panics, by making false state-menu in regard to the operations of the Tanfl of 1346. It is a little remarkable that the panic inon. gers studiously avoid publishing any facts which go to prove that the country is now enjoying unexampled prosperity. The Montour Roixirio Mux. The Danville Democrat confirms the report that the Montour Rolling Mill will soon again be put in operation for the manufacture of railroad bar iron. The entire machinery has been overhauled, and other preparatory eTrangcments made. Thomas Chambers, Esq., has purchased Mr. Leavitt's interest in these extensive works, and will, with Murdock, assume the direction of the business of the Company. J Assassination or Mr. Browslow. The Charleston Courier, of the 2d inst., is informed by a gentleman of that city, that received a Utter from a friend residing near Joneaboro', Tenn., slating that W . G. Brownlow, editor of the Jooesboro' Whig, had bad been assassinated in the street, by a man by the name of Ryland that Ryland struck him on the back of the bead, fracturing bis skull in such a manner that three pieces of bons came out. Stats: Treasury. Gideon J. Ball, Esquire, the modest gentlemen, who elected himself the Treasurer of this State, assumed the duties of his place on the 1st inst. His first act was the removal oT that excellent Chier Clerk, Col. Asa Dimroock, who is aucceeded by Thomas Nicholson, Esq., former member of the House of Representatives from Beaver county. ' Extraordinary. James Berry, Esq., of South Dennis, was married lately at West Harwich, to Mrs. Hannah Kelly, or Dorchester. Mr. Berry was married in lS22to the above named Mrs. Kelly, and about five years afterwards he was divorced from her, she having previously married aMr.Greeawood. Since his divorce Mr. B. has been married twice, and buried both wives. He has now married his first love. Is the present Mrs. Berry his first or fourth wife T mS Col. Anthony Kimmell is mentioned as one of the next candidates for Governor of Maryland. The Baltimore Republican says that lie is a staunch Democrat, and a friend of the Conventional Reform, and is well worthy the support of those who agree with him in political sentiment. Virsihia, Episcopal Costestioh. Bishop Meade baa niien notice that the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Virginia will be held in Charlottesville, commencing on Wednesday, May 16. The place of meeting has been changed in con-sequeuce of the general apprehension of Cholera in the West. May Party. I The young misses orMr.GosiiuRK's School, together with their friends, to the number altogether of about 150, yesterday had a delightful May Party The epoi selected for ths scene of their festivities, was the beautiful and romantic country seat of our townsman, James S. Craft, Esq., overlooking the Monongahela river, about a mile and a half above the city. We unfortunately arrived at too late an hour to witness the ceremonies of the crowning of the "Queen of May," but wre were informed that they were truly interesting. The young misses were dressed with exquisite neatness, and appeared like daughters of Flora sporting through the garden of the Hesoerides. They all erjoyed themselves to the fullest extent; and returned to the city about 6 o'clock, singing, as romping, happy girls only know how to sing "Would that thou couid'st last for aye, Happy, joyous, glorious May." For the Marning Post L. Habper, Eso., Dear Sir: Permit us thtough your very liberal paper to introduce the name of Mr. James Salsburt, of Birmingham, for the Sheriffalty, to the early consideration of the Dem ocratic County Convention, which will shortly de liberate on that subject. Salsburry has never been backward nor run down, neither could he be, for he belongs to that portion of community that rarely, i ever becomes paupers, cither to their party or com munity ; we mean the working portion ol Society upon which Mr. Salsbury has acknowledged claims. We on this side of the river who feel an interest i this matter, look over to the south for their co-oper ation, knowing that in union there is strength. Uni ted we stand, divided we fall. Therefore we ask the Democratic parly, the only party that have an interest in common with the working man, to unite on James Salsbury, and nominate him for the office r sheriff- n,t ui word for it. vou will see the neatest lot of skinned coons you have seen for some time.

Jenny Lind has been married at Bath, to Mr. Harris, and retired from the stage. Good bye to her! She is homely enough, but her voice is that of a nightengale and she is both good and amiable. Mr. Audubon's California Hsrly. The New Orleans Picayune, of 2tih ultimo, gives some particulars ofMr. Audubon's party, on the authority of a gentleman just from the Rio Grande : They had not started on the Itiih, but would be o in a very few days. Of the $ 12,000 stolen from Mr-Audubon, $S,000 in alt have been recovered. A man who was generally supposed to have been implicated in the robbery, was shot the other day by a nan whose life he had threatened. The current rumor was that the slayer knew too much about the robbery to be safe. He was suspected of having given the information by w hich $4,t'iUO was recovered. His lite had in consequence been threatened, and he w as in truth hunted, but turned upon his pursuer, and shot him at sight in a bar room. The victim was an American, named CUrk, who formerly ht-ld a commission in an Illinois Regiment he had particularly distinguished himself at the battle of Buena Vista. The route to be pursued by Mr. Audubon's party, or perhaps we should say Lieutenant Browning's, for the latter had the military command, was uncertain. They would proceed at once to Durungo. The favorite idea was to reach the Gulf of California at some point north of Mazatlao, and cross over to Lower California and pursue their journey by land up that peninsula. The belief was that the road was quite practicable, and, save for two hundred miles, where the country was broken, an excellent one. Lieut. Browning belongs tj the navy, but is absent on sick leave, with orders to report for duly to the commander of the squadron in the Pacific. Mr. Audubon is a great favorite with bis company; the company is represented as wanting in men accuse tooted to frontier life. A Mttgular Case. Some of our readers may remember Ihe case ol the double suicide of the two Mr. Andrews, one in Mobile and the other in Ketv Orleans. It appears that an action has been commenced in New Orleans, as we see by the Bee, by Richard Valentine, claiming $21CC "4 as the balance due on sales of cotton, and setting forth that 7.. Andrews bad absconded from that city after thefailure of his house in order to avoid his creditors, and that he is not dea.l. He further alleges That Mrs. Esther Abrams, his wife, afterwards gave out to the world, and petending that her said husband was dead, made application to this Court lor letters of administration on his estate, which were granted ber. That she then combined with Mrs Sally Andrews, who resides in the city of Philadelphia, to cheat and defraud the creditors. That the claim of Sally Andrews to f H.600 is a fictitious one, and prays tbat the judgment in her favor on the pretended obligation of Andrews & Brother be set aside, and that the sale of the property ou Camp street, ordered by the Court to pay the debt, be enjoined. The Bee says the body of Andrews was found in the river aud identified after death. More about Col. Fremont' Disasters. We find the following in the St! Louis Reveille, of tha2;thoIt: Mr. Taplin, one of the sufferers in the disaster which befel Colonel Fremont', nartv. is now in this city. He has entirely recruited his health and strength ana with true American perseverance is maiing ar- rangmentstor a second trial ofa journey to laiuor- nia. l ne account he gives of the ternoie privations and sufferings endured by the party to which he was attached, corresponds in every particular with that ot colonel fremont the wretchedness ol tneir condition for a while, he sais, passes human conception. wi ine ten men who died, two, tviessrs Andrews, were well known citizens of this place ; Proue, was a native of France; Morain, a resident of Illinois, w hose relations we believe are in Cabo- fcia; Beadle, a resident of this county; Ktiorer ana King residents of Georgetown, District of Columbia; Hubbard, from Milwauke;and Carver, from Chicago. The fate of Mr Kins, was most heart rending ne was. savs Mr Taolin. a man m the spring time of life.ot cultivated mind, and oi me mosi engaging manners. He had been married but two weeks previous to his departure on the expedition, and was onlv a short time with the company ere he had gain ed the friendship ana esteem oi every memoir. When Fremont's party had tirst lost their horses, a company of tour men, of which King had been appointed leader, were despatched to the settlements to procure succor: Sixteen days alter their depar ture, Fremont, (who having been impatient at their protracted stay, had determined to go himself in search of supplies) overtook them. He found Wil liams, Brackenridge and another scarcely able to proceed from exhaustion. - King had died, and his remains, which the party carried with them, had been more than half eaten up ty his companions. A dire necessity had left them no choice, and it was done in self protection. Up to nearly the day of his death, King had kept a journal, and the last entry written upon it is this ''Dec 11 This morning, as usual, I had a quarrel with Bill Williams. Nothing to eat we travelled about one mile and a half to-day." The cause of the difficulty with Williams was the latter's daily increasing weakness, and his inability to proceed. King endeavored by remonstrances to urge bim for-ward. Those in camp, amongwhom was Mr. Taplin, who survived, subsisted as best they could, on raw hide, but this, also, would have failed to sustain them, had not assistance arrived as soon as it did. The Reveille gives the following as a correct list: Survivors Col Fremont and the boy Saunders, Williams, Breckenridge, Crutzefeldt, Godey, Prenss, (his nephew,) Vincent Haler, Scott, Martia, Bacon, Berne any two brothers, Barthrart Captain, (Eng.) McKee, Stcpperfeldt, Taplin, Manuel ane two Indian boys. Died Proue, Wise, King, Carver, Lovel, Morin, Hubbard, Andrews, kuliret and Beadle. From the Liverpool Times, 21t. The Iron Trade. During the early part of last week, considerable distrust wss exhibited by the merchants and buyers of iron, as to the determination w ith which the nom inal advance of 20 shillings per ton in price would be carried out by the ironmasters at Birmingham; w hile, on the other hand, some of the manufacturers of the finer qualities w ere calculating that they should be able to secure rather be'.trr terms, as it was known that the Shropshire makers were decidedly tirm, and that an advance of wages h id been given, both there and in the Welsh district. It was also rumored that in consequence of the busy state ot the nail trade, a further advance was contemplated in nad rods; indeed, a report prevailed that 8 per ton had been demmded by at least one house for the article. In consequence of these condicttug views, although the attendance at Wolverhampton on the 1 1 tli was equal to the usual average, butsincs was transacted languidly. The same impressions xlitl obtained the following day, and lor some time induced the proceedings of the meeting; but towards its close they very gradually relinquished and bar-cams were more Ireely concluded, sellerscontentmg themselves with supporting their previous position, and customers yielding with some show of reluctance; and although a considerable portion of the business of the immediate home district was deferred until the following Saturday evening, and caution a throughout very generally the prominent feeling it was then pretty well cleared up at Dudley; and upon the whole, the result is allowed to be anttsfac. ury, both as to orders and settlement of the various accounts. With regard to the Scotch iron trade, we may ob eerve thut at the commencement of the present month, in consequence of a speculative feeling, there was rather an improved deuuud lor pis; iron. which, having been Ireely met by holders, the price immediately gave way, and now rules 47tid lo 4ss rinsed Nov, and b'J to 4fts all No. .

A -cv lufernal Macblnr. DuaoLK al Attiupt. A most infamous attempt w as made on Friday last, at New York, to destroy the lives of Thomas Warner, Kaq., and his family, the following account of which we make up principally from the New York Journal of Commerce : It appears that on ThuriMiay night, between 8 and 10 o clock, during Mr. Warner s absence Irom the city, a box was left at the door of his house, having on it written in a bold, business like hand, though evidently disguized, " Thomas Warner, Esq., IS City Halt Place, confidential." The person was evidently disguised, aud his face appeared to have been blacked: Mr. W. did not return until yesterday, and when he went home, was told of the box haviog been left there, and it formed the subject of conversation at dinner, and while engaged eating their dinner, the box w as brought down into the basement. Mr. Warner bad previ ously given directions to his son, to ojwuihe box and see what it contained, but his suspicions being excited, he proceeded very carefully to open the box himself, and ilowly drew the sliding In! from the box about half way, when he saw a blue and yellowish flame arise fiom it, and with the utmost presence of mind, he quickly called to his wife and son to leave the room, and then ran out himself Immediately afterwards an explosion took place, which shook the whole building, and the report was heard a long distance from the house. Mr. W. then relumed to the room to ascertain the extent of the damage, when he found lltat it had partly blown down the partition wall, shattered one of the doors into pieces, and partly broke another door. The lower sashes ol both windows were entirely blown out, and the glass broken in to small fragments, and the crockery on the table broken into pieces. One of the pictures hanging up in the room, appears to have been perforated by two balls. The fragments of the box, which were strewed all around the room, were then picked up, and it was ascertained that tha box was made of mahogany, about a half an inch thick, with a sliding cove-. On tne inside of the cover was found a surface of sand fastened ou glue, two large bundles of loeo-foco matches were fouud in the room, and the remnants of a tin powder canister that would hold a pound weight of powder From all which it would appear tbat the powder had been placed in the box, with some fuse made of cotton placed in the mouth of llie canister, and the matches were so placed as to cause the lid to rub against them as it was drawn off, and thus ignite them. The rascal, when be left the box, said to the servant girl, in a disguized voice, " Hand this to Massa Warner.'' The authorities should offer an ample reward iu addition to the 400 offered hy Mr. Warner, for the detection and conviction of the scoundrel. Suspicion has already fastened upon an individual who holds a high positin in the wealthy circles of the city, and every means will be used to probe th matter and bring the offender to justice." The Cotton Crop and the Frost, The southern newspapers teem with paragraphs detailing the injury done the cotton and sugar crops by the cold weather in the latter part of the last month. The consequence has been that holders of cotton in the north, do not offer to sell ; notwithstanding the immense sales of New Orleans, aver, aging some 10,000 or 12,000 per day, prices remain in mercantile phrase "stiff!" Whether the injury is as extensive as reported, we have no means of judging, but much damage must have undoubtedly been done, aa frost at any season of the year, after February, is very unusual so far south as latitude 32. PennsylvunUn. Mississippi. The statement originating in the New York Her-aid, that General John A. Quitman had been nominated for Governor of Mississippi, is not correct.

The paragraph, which we yesterday ccopied from the Jersey City Telegraph, about a lady in that City using an onion instead ofa pin cushonto stick her needles in, and finding the next morning mat iaty all had "tears in their eyes, called to mind an anecdote of the late John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay. We do not recollect having ever seen it in print, but even if it has been, it will, we itmiK, near repetition: AVben these distinguished statesmen were at Ghent, negotiating our treaty with Great Britain, they occupied a room together. Sir. Clay, who has always been a warm admirer of female beauty had often rematked the comely looks of their chambermaid, and had once or twice joked with Mr. Adams about it. One morning he arose some time alter Mr. Adams, and on his way to the break-fail table he met the pretty maid referred to. Saluting her in his blandest style, and in his usual easy and graceful manner, while a smile olaved upon his countenance, he solicited the pleasure of a kiss, it may here be necessary to state that Mr. Adams' eyes always presented a watery ap pearance, which at times made him look as if in tears. The chambermaid, not knowing the cause we presume, replied to Mr. Clay, with the greatest simplicity imaginable, "why, Mr. Clay, 1 do not like to disoblige you, but perhaps you will excuse me when I assure you that I have just refused Mr. Adams the same liberty, with tears in las (yet." We need not say that Mr. Clay had to much gallantry to press hi stiit- but he subsequently met Mr. Adams, who joined him in a hearty laugh. Ifewark Eagle. Cure far Cholera. EoiMCRuH, April 9, 15-49. The Brilth Ambassador, Lord Ponsonby, in a letter to his brother the Bishop of Derry, states that "to bis own knowledge, dissolved camphor proved to be a certain cure for Cholera, both at Paris and in Germany ; and if taken in time, the cure is generally effected before it is possible to procure a phv- sictan that is in less than a hour." In confirms- ! tion of tli ion of this, J. P. Doncann, Esq., an emmeat meJi- j ai authority, at Edinbro', states that he found fluid I amphor by far the most effectual preperation, and t j cal manifest decrease of sickness, and of cramps, with rapid revival ol spirits and circulation. A a preventive he has supplied this fluid very extensively to the poor, and with marked advantages in restoring and progressing good digestion and nervous energy, essential guards against Cholera. Ltedi Mtreury. Fine Sheep. Our friends, Stresn & Reed, of Canton township, j have just obtained f'om Connecticut, for their own j use, some very fine Saxony Bucks and Ewes, impor- j ted from Germany. The Bucks are from the finest docks in Connecticut, and the Ewes were imported by Mr. Taintor, of Hartford, w ho selected them Irom the most celebrated docks in Europe. Messrs. Strean Reed have gone to a heavy expence in making this valuable addition to the already Sne stock of sheep iu the county, and w e t.urt they wilt be amply compensated for their outlay of time and money. They offer for sale some of the Bucks which they have brought out, and the wool-growers of the courty rsnnotdo better than avail themselves of the opportunity thus offered to improve llie quality of their docks.

Ration Traveler. At Liverjiool a remarkable case of breach of promise of marr.ige has lately been tried. The plantiff is verging upon 70 years, and the delen-dant, a widow, is about 60. The court room was filled with spectators, among whom were several ladies. The evidence introdured kept the audience confused with laughter during the entire trial. The Judge, in summing up said that it was no doubt a case of a breach ol promise, tut doubted whether there had been great injury to affections in the matter. The jury gave the plaintiff one Jarthini; damages, and the court adjudged that he should pay his own costs. They talk about the poverty ot Louis Philippe If the father be poor, the sons are not in very indigent circumstances.
