The Mormons in England. Mr. Mackay has written for the London Morning Chronicle, a full and interesting account of the Mormons, a large number of whom are constantly emigrating from England to this country. He says that the Morfrtons boast of having an emigration fund of three and a half tons of California gold. Dr. Mackay saw and mixed much with these enthusiasts in Liverpool. He was introduced to one of their priests who evinced the most friendly feeling, finding that be was the author of a piece of poetry which is in high favor amongst the sect. It seems that during the last ten years, the emigration of Mormons from England has beon nearly 14,000, and that during the last year it amounted to 2600 chiefly farmers and mechanics of a superior class, from Lancashire, Yorkshire, Wales, and the southern parts of Scot, land. The growth of Mohammedanism," Dr. Mackay says, "rapid as it was, is not to be compared with the rise and growth af Mormonism." Professor Neander. The funeral of the celebrated Church historian, Neakdee, took place on the 17th of July, in Berlin, Prussia, and was attended by a procession of g reat length. As it marched through a route two miles long, the sides of the streets, and the doors and windows were filled by an immense concourse of spectators. The hearse was surrounded by students, some of them from Halle, carrying lighted candles, and in advance was borne the Bible and Greek Tea. tament which had ever been used by the deceased. At the grave a choir of young men sang appropriate music All the high officers of the government at tended at the Church to hear the funeral sermon, which was preached by Professor Strauss, for forty- five years on intimate friend of Neahder. " Old Mediciwe." The Cincinnati Enquirer of Saturday last, says: We had the pleasure of taking by the hand Dr. Chamberlin well known as "Old Medicine" who has just returned from California. He looks in better health than when he left here last February a year ago. It will be remembered the Doctor went out as Health Officer of the Boundary Commission, under Colonel Weller. After the Commission was broken up, by the removal of Col. Weller, " Old Medicine ' located at San Francisco, and was returned to the California Senate. He reports that Col. Weller is doing a fine busi-ness at his profession, making a fortune fast. Governor Shannon is also doing well, practising law. Accidekts by Lishthins. The Mt. Vernon Ohio, Banner, of the 14th inst., says : We have heard of several accidents by lightning during the storm on Friday morning last. The stable of Mr. Jennings Crawford, on the Martinsburg road, was struck: and burnt to the ground. Two horses per ished in the flames. A barn in Mount Liberty, we understand, was partly burnt. We did not learn the name of the owner. We have heard, also, that a man was killed near Mansfield, by lightning, the same morning. A Miss Russell, who formerly resided near this place, was also killed by lightning a short time since. The Buritet Hotse, CrircririvATi. The Cin cinnati Gazette, giving statistics of the Burnet House, says, that some estimate of the expendi tures of this house may be had from the follow ing-facts: One ton of ice, at $20 per ton, is consumed daily; forty gallons of milk, do.; one hundred dozen of eggs, do.; Sixteen barrels of flour are used per week, and five hundred pounds of butter in the same time. The gas bill is $ 3,000 per annum. There are one hundred and thirty- five servants, sixty of whom are females. Of these one hundred and thirty-two are Irish and three French cooks. The only daughter and eldest child of Mr, Bancroft, late -United States Minister at the court of St. James, died at Springfield, Massachusetts, on the 9th instant. She was a lovely, interesting young lady of seventeen years, and had been visiting in the family of her uncle, Mr. Bliss, in that town, for some weeks. She was in robust health until within a few days of her death. Ji.u D'EsraiT. A correspondent of the Wash ingtou Union, a member of Congress, furnishes the lollowing pleasant hit at the late protest in the United States Senate : California, let it seem strange as it will, Although with the riches of Ophir invested, Has prov'd quite unable to prevent the first 'bill' 1 bat was drawn in her tavor trom being 'protested,' The liabilities of Suydam, Sage & Co., who recently failed in New York, are ascertained to reach $3,000,000. The assignee is Ferdinand Suydam. He is a creditor for $25,000. and Stephen Whitney for $35,000. Submarine Telesrapb. A late English paper says : " The interesting experiment of establishing a communieation by electric telegraph between Eng land and the continent, is to be tried in the course of the next fortnight. The wires will be laid between Dover and the most projecting part of the op posite coast, near Calais, and the distance thus traversed will be twenty miles and three-quarters. The expense of the experiment will be about JC25,-000; the company by whom it is to be carried out has been constituted in Fans, although it consists chiefly of English shareholders. The number of shares is 5000 upon which XI per share has been paid." An Item for Grexbeards. The True Union, of Baltimore, publishes the following from "an aui thentic source." As it may be of importance to some friends "we wot of," we give it a place : A distinguished General (Twiws) returned from the Mexican war covered with "glory." He had however, two marks of hard service which laurels could not hide as they did Casar's baldness. One was a head as white as wool ; and the other a cutaneous eruption on his forehead. For the latter, he was advised to try a mixture of sulphur, and sugar of lead and rose water... In applying it, some of the mixture moistened the hair on his forehead, and after a while this part of his hair resumed its original color. He then applied the mixture to all his hair, and it became, and is now, of its primitive sandy hue. He communicated the fact to some of bis friends in Washington es. pecially to some ex-members, who are widowers and seeking preferment and it has been found efficacious in every instance. It does not dye the hair, but seems to operate upon the roots, and re store the original color. The recipe is as follows: 1 drachm Lac Sulphur; J drach Sugar of Lead; 4 ounces Rose Water; mix them ; shake the phial on using the mixture, and bathe the hair twice a day for a week, or longer if necessary. Mead. Decidedly one of the best, most pala table, and, we think, most healthful beverages for warm weather, is Sassafrag Mead. It is so very cheap, and may be prepared by any one who will take the trouble to procure the materials. Miss Leslie gives the following recipe for making it: "Mix gradually with two quarts of boilling water, three pounds and a half of good West India molasses, and a quarter of a pound of tartar acid. Stir it well, and when cool, strain into a large jar or pan ; then mix in 8 quarter of an ounce of essence of sassafras. Transfer it to clean bottles (it will fill about half adozen,)cork it tightly and keep it in a cool place. Have ready a box containing about a quarter of a pound of carbonate of soda to use with it. To prepare a glass of it for drinks ing, pour a little of the mead inio a' tumbler, -stir it into a small quantity of soda, and add sufficient ice water to fill the glass give it a stir, and it will immediately foam to the top. The principal materials for this excellent prep aration may be obtained of the druggists. Ger-mantown Telegraph. Eeonomy and the Economics. j Wx. B. Shattuck, the able and intelligent edi tor of the " Columbian and Great West," at Cincinnati, who has recently been traveling through the West and North West, is now writing sketches for his paper of the places and things he saw during his tour. In the last number of the Columbian, under the head of "Ecohomt Ceiiba ct," we find the following description of the vil lage of Economy, in Beaver county, and accounts of the history and habits of the" Ecooomites: Having become tired of the monotony of stern- wheel water boats, we were trotted off in a neat buggy by a roadster, that from an excellent knowledge of the road and his paces, was able to make good time in opposition to the Beaver and Pittsburgh daily packet. After having accomplished half the ten miles, intervening between the " Point and the end of our drive, we came to one of the noblest farms (there is true nobility in combining the perfectiou of Art with the perfec tion of Nature) which we bad ever seen upon the banks of La Belle Riviere. Upon a gently sloping hill was a fine mansion, built of beautiful cut stone, which, although without the lightness and ornament of the villa, when surrounded as it was by flower-bordered sloping terraces and evergreens, by forest trees of luxuriant wildness, and graceful locusts and stately elms, was so far superior to its neighbors, as to deserve a distinctive and more suggestive name than is found in the mere shade and-shelter substantive " house." Farther up the hill were the wheat fields, just then waving in the wind like a golden sea, and the orchards promising an abundance of fruit, and the pastures covered with flocks and herds, and woods running down into dells and up to sunny points, with a pictuesqueness of effect that is often happily taken off upon canvass by Frankenstein the younger. But below was one of the broadest and best of the Ohio's alluvial plains one of dame nature's richest laps, into which she has poured the accomula-ted wealth of a thousand years wealth inexhaustible, deposited in a soil that at the touch of the plow, the germ gives back a hundred fold to the sower, and which is this year luxuriating be neath the growth of a miniature ocean of corn. Persons familiar with the history of Economy, know that the founders of the settlement advocate, or rather defend, one peculiar social and one peculiar unsocial institution. The founders of the society emigrated from Wittemberg, Germany, about the year 1803, and were under the leaders ship and almost entire control of George Rapp. Their property was then indivisible stock, held in common for the common benefit, and in which one person had no greater interest than another. They first purchased six thousand acres of land in Butler county, Pennsylvania, and remained there until 1815, when, thinking they could obtain a more productive soil and found a more important and influential colony farther west, they sold theif original purchase and secured 30,000 acres upon the Wabash river, in Indiana. But after contending not only with those obstacles al ways attending the settlement of any new country, but with malarious fevers, they sold the principal part of their large territory to the celebrated Robert Owen, and unanimously determined to re turn to Pennsylvania. They accordingly pur chased between three and four thousand acres of land, eighteen miles below Pittsburgh, on the Ohio, and gave to their new village the name of F.ponomv. At this time there were in round numbers, seven hundred members of their society, which was soon after increased by the arrival of fifty persons from Frankfort, under the direction of a man calling himself Count Leon. This accession proved a source of great annoyance to many of the old community ; for the Count wished to assume a control in its affairs which the venerable Father Rapp was unwilling to allow. The direction of spiritual and temporary affairs was within a circle whose centre was occupied by Father Rapp, who was firm in the belief that its circumference was not large enough to embrace the mercurial little body of the Count. - We cannot make further mention of their affairs without alluding to the peculiarly unsocial feature of their institutions. They do not deny the force and implied continuance, or the common obligation of the command " increase and multiply," neither as is sometimes asserted, do they excuse themselves from obedience on account of poverty or policy. Celibacy is a part of their religious faith, and although they admit "that it is well to marry," they apply to themselves the apostolic recommendation once given to an unwilling minority of their race under different circumstances, by an undoubtedly wise and good man ; hut who, if we mistake not, was without that experience which gives perfection to knowledge. They profess to believe that they should offer all their love to the Creator, and endeavor to retain but a very Platonic and virtuous friendship for one another. They do not deny that some little strangers do sometimes, though but rarely make them unwelcome visits, (they are at once adopted by all motherly matrons, and exhibited like any other curiosity,) but they do not consider these occasional departures from the usually uniform frigidity of their lives as sufficient cause for the expulsion of the erring parties. If any of their members desire to leave, no obstacles are thrown in their way, but they can make no claim for services, and receive only such donation as the superintendent is disposed to make. . Count Leon wished to substitute matrimony for the selfdenying faith that had been ostensibly observed for more than a quarter of a century, and it is not surprising that he found an active minority among the younger members of the brotherhood and sisterhood, ready to aid in promoting his views. But Father Rapp and'the majority were unyielding, and three hundred of the society seceded from the main body, receiving $105,000 as their donation,' and changed their residence to Philipsburg, opposite Beaver, where they preserved only the communistic principle of their former organization. It was proved that Count Leon was at best a foolish missionary, who squandered the money with which he had been entrusted in endeavoring to transmute the adjacent rocks, and baser metals to gold, and in other pursuits of equal profit. The sudden change from the strict discipline of Economy to perfect freedom, caused a rebound into excesses that disturbed the harmony of the new association, which was soon dissolved, some of the members removing with the Count to Arkansas, some scattering about the country, and others remaining at Philipsburg, where the abundance of broad-faced, flaxen haired urchins sufficiently attest the fidelity with which the newly made woic and Gatten discharged I he duties of their new estate. The raising of silk, and the manufacture of woolen and other goods for sale, once occupied a large share of attention at Economy; but since the secession their factories have been comparatively idle, and their time has been almost exclusively devoted to their excellent and well-tilled farms. ! Except the principal thoroughfare, the grass is growing in the streets, and there is a noonday stillness about the village that is seldom interrupted, but by the creaking of a pump handle, as some linsey-woolsey dame fills her bucket at a corner. There are no babies to squall, no naughty boys to be whipped, no girls to be frocked and bonnetted, and ribboned ; and these believers in a doctrine to which they have made comparatively no converts, are left to labor, to smoke, to wrinkle, to dry up, and die together in the solitude of selfish asceticism. By their industry they have grown rich ; (their property is variously estimated from a half a million to a million invested in real estate, stocks and mortgages,) but as theirexperiments in adop ting Americans have failed, they may either be compelled to send to Germany for a reinforcement, or to allow their association to become extinct with themselves. They are peaceful and orderly, and we can but regret that those who manifest so much shrewdness in the management of their business, should leave no posterity to inherit their estimable qualities. They are Lutherans, and meet regularly for worship, and have certain festivals and anniversaries when they assemble in a large hall to dine, to refresh their memories with reminiscences of their fatherland, and to discuss future plans. Since Mr. Rapp's death, which occurred three years ago, they have a government of eight or nine directors, with power to choose their successors. They have a hotel strictly for the accommodation of strangers, as they refuse to allow them to remain more than two or three days, giving as a reason " that they are getting old and do not wisu to ee aisiuroea oy visuo that money to them is no object, and they desire to spend the remainder of their lives in peace and quietness." We owe many thanks to Mr. Baker, the principal manager, for polite attention during our short visit. News and Miscellaneous Items.

Defeat or tbe Russians slans. by th Clreas- Extract of a letter from a correspondent at Tre-bizond, July 3: "We have received by recent ar rivals, most important intelligence from Daghis tan ; and the reports of further losses by the Rns- sians, in warfare with Shamil Bev, are now so ex. tensively circulated, and so generally credited.that comparea witn accounts which have reached us, take a form of authenticity fully to be relied upon. ii win appear mat snamii Bey, who really deserves credit as a military commander, has crossed the frontier at the head of a large force, and car ried devastation and pillage among the Tartar villages of South Azderhan. Gen. Dosrouroukv. who commands the Russian army, had not time to concentrate his troops, who were for the most part cut up, discouraged, half starved, and toiling tneir way tnrougn rocks and roads nearly impassable, and rendered more so by trampling of thou- sauus oi men ana oeasts ot Durden on a narrow track, from which they dared not to deviate. 1 Be sides these difficulties, Shamil's active and indefat igable mountaineers harrassed them at every spot, and a general disorganization spread itself among the Russian ranks. They reached Eskidervirche, some 70 miles over the frontier, during the night of the 5th of May, and fell upon an ambuscade of the Uagblees, commanded by Shamli in person The mountaineers, being short of ammunition, were soon among them, sword in hand, and the Russian host was quickly put to the rout with the loss of a general, and aid-de-camp, 70 officers, 4 guns, and most of their ammunition and bag. gage. The Daghlees, being loaded with booty, retirea among tne fastnesses of their mountain re treats, after a campaign which lasted from the 23d of April to the 6th of May. During Shamil Bey's aosence me LaimakamLilc ot Daghistan was entrusted to the care of Mohammed Bey, who sent a numbep of emmissaries among the neighboring tribes, engaging them to rise en masse and join the ranks of Sbamii. A letter from Sonkhoum stated that Mrain Bey, the brother-in-law of Shamil Bey, was actively stirring up the Circassians to revolt. Long may the successes of the brave mountaineers be such as have graced this recent campaign." umaon faper. Fhovids ioh Old Abe. It is not well that man should always labor.

LOCAL4 MATTERS. Tev MiHtTTES, lit the Matok's Officx We sat during tea minutes in the Mayor's Office yesterday, during which time two persons entered who begged for relief. The first was a woman, who said, " I have no money, no home, bo friends, and I was sent here to get a place to lie down ; I am very sick." She was directed to the office of the Guardians. She had hardly got away from the office when a man en tered, who said," I have just arrived in towa, I have no money, and am very weak from sickness. I am a stranger here, and must depend on the public for support till I can get away." He was also sent to the office of the Guardians. We understand the Mayor receives such visits ev ery hour in the day. Tbe fact shows how much wretchedness there is in the world. ..

Courtney, Esq., Counsel for the Company, addressed a letter to Mr. Hartman yesterday, informing him that, if he persisted in his course he would have him indicted for " nuisance." Two girls yesterday morning entered the bouse of Hugh D. King, Fourth street, and commen ced overhanling certain articles of value in one of the rooms. A servant entered for the very innocent purpose of enquiring their business, when one of them knocked her down. After gratifying their desires they retired, and have not since been heard of. The woman committed to jail by Aid. Steele, on Monday, on a eharge of Bigamy, was Mrs. Susan Baity, of Allegheny. It is said the testimony against her is clear.
