as the plate was a new one, which he had never seen before. Riddell said he bought the notes in Liberty, at 10 per cent. Conversed socially with him about half an hour, finding that he knew many acquaintances of witness' in Liberty, Riddell represented himself to be of the house of Bullitt & Smith, Louisville, Ky. Left his card, which indicated that he was an attorney at law in Louisville. Witness afterwards took the notes to Mr. Mead, at the Bank of the Commonwealth, to Mr. Pairo and to Mr. Maury, who pronounced them counterfeit.--Subsequently went to the Exchange Hotel, but not finding Riddel, sent for an officer. E. H. Chalkley, Police Officer, testified to the circumstances of the arrest of the prisoners, while they were setting their bills at the Exchange Hotel. They seemed surprised. Took them to their room, where witness searched Riddell, and Mr. Seal searched Chilton. Found on Riddell $95 in good money, but no counterfeit notes. Prisoner said he got the money, which
ns to frenzy before now. A simple proposition to light a city with gas has had to work its way by the mere force of gravity for years. It is a subject of congratulation that the plan of Col. Shaffner stands at least a fair chance of being tried. The causes of the failure to lay a telegraph which should act, in one line, between this country and Europe, begins to be better understood. The deep sea soundings created the impression that the bed of the ocean was almost a level plain.-- Capt. Maury, we believe, as well as other men of science, entertained this opinion.-- That it is entirely erroneous, has since been suspected, and we believe proved. The bottom of the ocean is as irregular as the surface of the earth. It has its hills, its mountains, its vallies, its gullies, its ravines, and its inequalities of every description. The Atlantic cable was laid on the theory that it was a dead level. Being anything else, of course the enterprise was bound to fail, from causes entire
Resignation of Commodore Maury.

The adhesion of such a man to the Southern cause will cause men abroad to reflect, and will exert infinitely more influence than would that of Scott. Europe is crowded with military marcely known outside the limits of our own country, and even then only as a soldier; but wherever the sea rolls a wave, Maury is known and reverenced as a great light, and a benefactor of his race.

ngress this session, and thinks that the guarantees demanded by the South, to be of any avail, must be granted by a Constitutional Convention of all the States. One thing is equally certain now to us all, North as well as South--that something must be done which will put a final stop to these quadrennial crises. Can that something be done? I think not; but wise men say it can and will be done. We shall see. Let me commend to your attention a letter written in November last by Lieut, Maury to Bishop Orey, of Tennessee, which appeared in the Memphis Bulletin of last Sunday. It is true alike to the Union and the South, is full of matter which ought to be known to the people of both sections, and its publication in Richmond at this time would, I think, do much good. An intelligent Baltimorean told me on the cars that New York men had assured him that a continuance of the crisis for a month longer would bankrupt every merchant in the country. In Baltimore, the Union feeling

From Washington. Washington, Jan. 9. --The War Department is in possession of information that the Governor of South Carolina has forbidden the United States Sub-Traasurer at Charleston from paying the drafts of the Paymaster in favor of Major Anderson and his command, and that the Sub-Treasurer has refused accordingly. Commander Maury says that the long passage of the U. S. sloop Levant does not, in his judgment, justify the supposition of her loss. He gives reasons for his belief. It is denied by gentlemen very intimately related to the Administration, that recruits to Fort Sumter were ordered without the previous sanction of the President. It is further asserted that the subject was discussed in the Cabinet, and the Acting Secretary of War, as well as some other members of the Cabinet, clearly understood that it was the wish of the President that recruits should at once be sent there.
hen it was first proposed in the National Assembly to substitute decapitation for hanging, for capital offences, the Abbe Maury objected, because he feared it might familiarize the people with the sight of blood; arguing the most deplorable consequerst being readily assented to, a long debate ensued on the second--to substitute decapitation for hanging — when the Abbe Maury made the objection to which we have alluded. On the second day of the debate, Guillotin, after having represented hanginane one, and he had not the most distant conception of what would result. Nor, indeed, did any one else, except the Abbe Maury, and he in a very imperfect degree. The propositions of Guillotin, indeed, seem to have met with little favor, although nd that their names were not to be exposed. This repugnance offers a strong commentary upon the remarks of the able Abbe Maury, before alluded to. So powerful, in March, 1792, was the prejudice, that it was difficult to get anybody to have any conc
