Terrible earthquake in South America. --Total Destruction of a City and Awful Loss of Life. A letter from Valparaiso, April 2d, gives the following account of the destruction of the city of Mondoza, and the attendant frightful scenes. With feelings of deep regret I have to announce to you the utter destruction of the city of Mendoza, in the Argentine Republic, by an earthquake, on the evening of the 20th of March last. At that date, at half-past 8 P. M., a alight but prolonged vibration of the earth was felt in this city and in Santiago simultaneously. Most of the churches were densely filled, it being near the close of Lent, and some alarm and conclusion was created, but no serious accidents occurred, and tranquility was soon restored. On Sunday, the 24th, however, a general gloom was cast over this city by the announcement by telegraph from the capital that Benigno Bruno, the mail rider, had arrived from Mendoza that morning without a mail, bringing the distre
Circuit Court. --This Court was engaged on Saturday in disposing of civil business. The Grand Jury brought in two bills of indictment against Peter Gailey, for attempting to pass counterfeit money on Wm. H. Dailey and Wm. Cullingworth, on the 2d of April. Jas. Baker, Thomas Wilkinson and Jno Lipscomb, indicted for burglary, were arraigned before Judge Meredith on Saturday evening, when a plea relative to jurisdiction was entered, and after a hearing the parties were remanded to the Hustings Court, to be sent on to Judge Lyons for trial.
he public business with dispatch, and to file away the papers so as to make them accessible for reference by the public officers in the daily discharge of their important duties. If you had permitted the Court to occupy either the hall of the House of Delegates or the Senate chamber for holding the sessions of the Court during the recess of the Legislature, a conference room might perhaps have been provided. Resolution relating to Osborne and Matthews. Under your resolution of the 2d of April last, requesting the Governor "to allow out of the civil contingent fund to William Osborne the sum of twenty-five cents per day from the commencement of the present session, and to allow to Richard Matthews the additional sum of one dollar for each day the Legislature has held night sessions at the present session," I declined to make any allowance, because I considered it the duty of the General Assembly, if they believed anything due to these parties, to provide, by a regular appropr

Woodstock, Va., April 1. --Gen. Banks advanced from Strasburg this morning towards this point. When on approaching the town,. Ashby, with a force of Rebel cavalry, infantry and battery, disputed the passage of the Federal troops. We however, passed on through the town, the rebels frequently stopping in their retreat and throwing shells, to which we responded with effort. Gen! Banks pursued the enemy to Edinburg, five miles south of Woodstock, Ashby burning the intupike and one railroad bridge in his retreat. All the railroad bridges between here and Strasburg had been previously destroyed. The only casualty on our side was one man killed an the Twenty-ninth Pennsylvania regiment, and one of the Second Massachusetts regiment received a rifleball in his s
From the Federal capital. From a Northern paper of April 2d we copy the following Washington correspondence: Action of the House on the Tax bill. The House spent most of the day to-day in considering the Tax Bill, which is pushed vigorously by the Committee of Ways and Means. Many members have but little relish for this important work, and the House dwindles rapidly below a quorum. A call of the House was made this afternoon, and all sorts of excuses were made by members for absenting themselves. One was called off by his wife, another "by the telegraph," another by important personal business, another "was excessively hungry," &c. Mr. Stevens is obliged to crack the parliamentary whip vigorously over the team to keep them in the traces. Pending the section taxing spirits the following was finally adopted as a substitutes for the section reported by the Committee of Ways and Means: On spirits mixed with other liquors or material, or prepared in any way to be sold a
Cotton planting --A correspondent of the Savannah Republican, writing from Washington, Ga., April 2d, says: "Our planters had a meeting yesterday, which was largely attended, and they unanimously resolved and pledged themselves not to plant any cotton for sales the present year.--They will raise just enough for their own domestic consumption, and plant all their lands in grain. Our people are determined to support the army, and help to whip the fight in every way." A letter dated Talbotton, Ga., says: "We had a glorious meeting here yesterday on cotton planting. Several of our largest planters will not plant a seed, among them, Major J. H. Walton, who has been in the habit of planting 600 acres in cotton.--So, also, old Mr. Searcy, and his son, Dr. Searcy, and Mr. J. Canker. I do not believe there will be 300 acres of cotton planted in the county. We have a cavalry company in progress, for the equipment of which $1,000 have been subscribed." The Sande

From the North. Our Northern dates are as late as Thursday, April 3. The news is by no means important, and we therefore make very brief selections: From General Banks column.

The magnificent railroad bridge, a hundred feet high, over the same stream, was burnt by Jackson when retreating from General Shields. ited confidence in the Yankee troops, hold unrestricted intercourse with them.
