e which no sensible person ever thought that the United States Government would even listen to, much less try and urge its payment; there can be but one term applied to it, and that is "infamous" The Peruvian Government have in its possession proofs against this claim of a most damning character, with some curious facts as to how such claims are made, but they are urged, and then the division of spoils. The refusal to settle upon the terms demanded by the United States, necessarily compels Mr. Clay to demand his passport, haul down his flag and go home. On Friday morning last the American ship Lucy M. Hale was discovered to be on fire.--The boats from the American vessels of war were immediately sent to her assistance, and it was by their praise worthy exertions that the vessel and cargo were saved. To Captain Rudd, of the Lancaster, who, by his promptness on the occasion, too much praise cannot be awarded. Yesterday a most frightful accident occurred in the Dry Dock at San

Our Foreign relations. --Dispatches from Mr. Clay, our Minister to Peru, inform the Secretary of State that the government of Peru had rejected the ultimatum of the United States for the settlement of the claims against that country, and that he had demanded his passports and would leave at once for the United States. On the 10th, the day the steamer left for Panama, the demand had not been complied with. Advices from the flag officer of the Pacific squadron gives all the facts in relation to the arrest of two naval officers at Panama, from which it appears that the officers were to blame in refusing to answer the challenge of the sentries on duty. Dispatches from our minister to China state that all claims of the United States against China, extending from 1840 to 1857, have been fully discharged under Mr. Reid's commercial convention of 1858. The Governor General speaks in the highest terms of the Americans, and of his desire to continue friendly relations with this country

Fourth street, between Clay and Leigh, is in harried condition at this time, and needs immediate attention. Why is it that the city authorities do not have the pit for the culvert filled up now that the brick work is completed! Such a nuisance, if created by a private citizens, would have been reported to the Mayor long since.

up his resolutions in effect censuring the President for not earlier sending the nomination of Mr. Holt as Secretary of War. The motion was objected to, and the resolution will come up at a future day. Mr. Yulee announced the reception of official intelligence that his State had seceded, and, consequently, that he and his colleague were no longer Senators. He read a valedictory giving the reasons which had induced Florida to secede. Mr. Mallory also delivered a valedictory. Mr. Clay, of Ala., on behalf of himself and Mr. Fitzpatrick, also withdrew in consequence of official intelligence of the secession of Alabama. Mr. Davis announced the secession of Mississippi, and made a speech, after which the seceding Senators rose and left the Hall, first taking leave of their old associates. The Kansas bill was amended and passed by a vote of 36 to 13. Mr. Crittenden's resolutions came up. Mr. Bigler advocated their passage. He denied the right of secession, and

Summers--from Charleston — the Florida Forts — the Key West fortifications — troops in Washington, &c. Senators Davis. Yulee, Mallory, Clay and Fitzpatrick, who formally withdrew from the Senate chamber, left ten vacant seats in the Senate. Four others will be speedily added.--The Washington Constitution, speaking of the rest, says. To those who scan events more closely, the withdrawals of yesterday, succeeding others for short distance cannot but suggest painful spottage. It were had enough, if in the ordinary mutations of politics the Senate were being stripped of its most illustrious members: Statesmen who have earned distinction by the ability, the patriotism, and the purity of their ,and whose voices have been ever polite opposition to the current demagogism of the day. But the spectacle witnessed yesterday and to be witnessed again are many days more over<
The Clay statue. --Many visitors to the city, especially ladies, have expressed a desire to see the statue of Clay. We are informed that it has not yet been uncovered, on account of the inclemency of the weather and the distracted state of the country; eminent physicians having given it as their opinion that if exposed now, the great statesman could not survive the shock of the contending elements, natural and political.
