The Co\irts have decided’ that refusing to take a newspaper or periodical from the office, or remov ing and leaving it uncalled for, is prima. facts evi dence of INTENTIONAL FRAUD. A Doo Story.— The Cincinnati Citizen tells the following stout dog story. c Yesterday we noticed one of the most sin gular displays of canine sagacity we ever saw, Mr. Baldwin offered a w ager- of five dollars that he would start his Newfoundland •dog from the wharf boat, send him over the river to Bake’s Hotel, and thatrthedog would return with a handkerchief which Mr. B. had. left in his room. The bet’ wfis,taken, and the dog plunged into the river, swam Across and made quick time up the levee on the Oth er side. In a short time he again made his Ap pearance, running towafds the river; lie jo ll - ped in and swam back to the foot of Walnut street with the pocket handkerchief iti his mouth. He was absent from the wliarf .boat only twenty-five mintites. Tire loser readily handed over the five dollar liill, and’declared that he had never expected to Joe such a feat. W Oman’s Love. —At Cinciilnafi>a short time’ since, a man named Brow n was arrested, sus-’ pected of counterfeiting, and put in jail.— That night a w oman, representing herself as the wife of the prisonor, under the pretenee of supplying her husband wdth supper, obtained admission to his cell, and as was supposed left shortly after for home. . In the morning however, it was discovered that the woman had exchanged clothes with her husband, and that the officers had been tricked; the hus band had escaped in the wife’s clothes. Quick Dispatch. —The Huntsville {Ala.) Advocate says oods were received by one of our merchants last week which were •only ten days out from New-York ! They ..were shipped by steameV to thenoe. .by railroad direct to Chattanooga, and then .down the river, A few years since, it took passengers ten days to make a trip. Steam iis a wonderful magician.” Ilian and Woman. Man is the creature of interest and ambition. His nature leads him forth into the struggle .and bustle of the world. Lov@ , bu&the em bellishment of his earthly fife, or a song piped ■in the intervals of the acts. He seeks for fame, fortune, for space in the world’s thought .and dominion over his fellow men. But a woman’s whole life is in the history of the af fections. The heart is her world; it is there ,her ambition strives for empire; it is there her : avarice seeks for hidden treasures. She sends forth her sympathies on adventure; she em barks her whole soul in the traffic of affection ; and if shipwrecked her case is hopeless —for jt is bankruptcy of the heart. ~~t —~ - ■ Loss of the Atlantic—An Affecting Yarra ,,, tive. ” e copy from the Erie Commercial Ad vertiser the following interesting and affect ing narrative of the escape from death of Mr. Garley and his sister, ,a delicate girl, by the sinking of the Atlantic. Mr. Cajrley is a young man in delicate health. The Adver tiser says the narrative was given with great emotion, and brought tears to the eyes of many in the large assembly who listened to it. Mr. Garley said in substance; If any one has cause for thankfulness on this occasion, it is myself: lam from Ver mont; and, with my sister, a poor consump tive, was on board the Atlantic. I was trav. elling with her “for her health! It was not Without great fefirs of its perils that we un dertook tlie We went on board the Atlantic at Buffalo on Tuesday evening, and .found her already crowded with passengers. I went to the steward to get a state-room for my sister: He fold rue they were all taken in the upper cabin, but he thought he could get her one below. We went down alid found tjiat all the rooms in the lower cabin were also* token. - He, however, prepared as comfortable a bed as possible on a sofa. She tried to sleep, but found the air so close and suffocating 3hat it. was with difficulty that she could breathe. We again went to the upper cabin! and the steward then told me that he could furnish - my sister a birth in the upper part of tire cabin. I took her to it, and after ward myself found a birth in the forward part. It was the lower one of the three, and the two above it were already occupied. Being much fatigued, and now satisfied that my sister was in comfortable quarters, I was soon asleep. I was suddenly startled from my sleep by a tremendous crash, and awoke to find the out er side of my state-room broken in, and the two upper berthß, with their occupatants, on - top of me. JT “As soon as I could extricate myself, my first thought was for my sister. I went im mediately to her room and found her awake. I told her that something had happened to the boat, but I couldn’t tell what it was; but that .1 thought we had better be prepared tor any danger. I went back to my berth and put on the rest of my, clothes. I was in no haste as there had been no alarm given. I, went back to my sister’s room; she had already dressed herself, and putting on hsr bonnet and man tilla met me at the door, with her carpet bag on her arm. fust then a man came to the cabin door, and, looking in, told us that the boat would sink in ten minutes ; and lie ex horted us to,pray for the forgivngss of Cur sins, and. Look to God for .mercy. This was the first serious-intimation we had of the extent Os eur danger. We- went on deck, and had • only been there a few minutes when the wa ter began to rise around us. It was’ soon up ‘to pur knees. I was is aim- and collected. I was not afraid to die ; all my care was for my poor slender sister. I could pot swim.— We therefore looked around for some means of sustaining ourselves in the water, should we be compelled to leavo the boat. “.We found a couple of chairs and took each of .us otie in our hands. The stern was the only part of the boat out of water. We wont to the railing, and my sister asked me to lift her upon it. I tried to, but was too weak, and callod snipe men who : were near to my assistance; We raised’ her up, and. there was another woman who wanted us to raise her up. We did so, and’ afterward I got up myself. My sister and 1 kept hold of our chairs. Every moment we expected the ,bqat to go down with a sough, and that the water would swallow us all up. We still clung to the railings, in each others’ embrace. Soon we saw the propeller com ing to our assistance, and a cry of joy burst from every lip. , Shortly she was alongside of us. We all rushed to get aboard of her. I made:an effort to raise my sister over the side, but was too weak. I made as powerful an effort as I was capable of, but my feet slip ping, I .fell between the two vessels, and sunk beneath the surface. Grasping about, I caught hold of a rope, by which I raised myself to tlie surface. But I-was tqo weak to raise myself any further, and was every moment ‘.becoming still more exhausted. I saw 110- ■ thing of my sister after I foil, and supposed, of. course she was lost. I was so weak I ijould not for a long time make my cries heard. , I had been in the water about half an hour, and was about giving Up all hope of being rescued, when I was discovered.— Another rope was thrown me, and I was drawn up on the boat. What was my joy— the first female I met was my sister 1” We have been favored with a visit from the Canadian, mentioned m having saved his fam ily from the wreck of the Atlantic, from whom we learned more of the paticulars.

When the concussion of the two boats woke them from Mr. L. seeing the dan ger, immediately, in company with his wife and three of the children, proceeded to the hurriSkneVdeck, where he fastened them to the supports of the steamers chimneys, and then returned and brought up three others, whom lie also fastened in the same manner— then returned again and this time brought up two more. Upon counting them it was dis covered that there was but eight in the group, and the youngest was missing. Again the father returned below, and, when up to his neck in the water, a wicker cradle, with his child still asleep in it, floated within his reach, as also did his chest, which he seized, but not being able to secure both, let the chest go, and it safely to the deck with his charge— where, after remaining for an hour or more, they wore taken off in safety by the propeller. The chest, beside the clothing, contained si;6oo in money, besides which his loss in furniture was about s9oo. —Chiago Journal. The Toledo Blade states that the brig Ash land arrived at Toledo, on Saturday forenoon, torn Buffalo, and that Capt. Baker picked ip, eight or ten miles below Long Point on take Erie, a black leather trunk, supposed t have belonged to some passenger on the stlamer Atlantic, at the time of her loss.— Tie trunk contained both ladies’ and gentle men’s wearing apparal, jewelry, daguerreo types, locks of human hair, and also a letter, purporting to have been written by George W. Hartley, at Lasalle, Lasalle County, 111., to hit father, George Hartley, 47 Gaskil-st., Philalelphia, Pu. The trunk and contents are in the possession of Messrs. Houg, Strong & Cos., of Toledo, who will give all informa tion necessary to any who may inquire after it. The iitorpreter who accompanied the emi grants in board the Atlantic has returned to Buffalo, uid reports the loss much less, than w-as supptsed. The whole number saved is 64—loss 58, men, women and children. The survivors were liberally provided for by the managers if the Central Railroad, and the interpreter saw them comfortably settled in Wisconsin. Gkougu Female Semi.nries The Watchman aid Observer, of Richmond, Va.,* has the folhwing notice of Female Edu cation in Geogia. Among the early schools, (says the Augista Chronicle <Sp Sentinel,) the writer should have mentioned that at the Cherokee Conor, which deservedly occupied the first rank T the State, thirty or thirty five years ago—at which so many of the Misses of that in Georgia, and some of the adjoining St.tes, received an elegant ami substantial educaion. He has also omitted to mention amongthe Institutions ofthe pre > sent day, at’ wjuth there are hundreds of young Ladies, no’ receiving accomplished educations—the. tv.) Colleges at Madison, the one at Covington, (he two high Schools at LaGrange, those t Montpelier, Newnan, Thotnpsville and Woffington, besides many others, in which the topise of study is most thorpugh, affording a.many and great advan tages, as any slinih restitutions in the Union. “'The first direct iflpulse .to female educa tion in Georgia was Avon by the establish ment of a female scliouat Mt. Zion in 1815. Soon afterwards fcmnl, schools were estfib-’ lislicd at Powelton, Ejatntou, Madison, Ath ens, GreAisboro’, Wasfogton, Sparta and other parts of, the State .'and the cause from that'day to this has heenteadily progressive. These schools, in some eges, Haw. been the fruit of individual entorpae.; but more gen erally ths neighborhood, bounty, er die religious denomination, hay beeortie the spe efal patsons, providing. anye budding for the establishment and funds aoquate to sustain it.

This speech is the great point of attack against Mi Webster in Georgia, as it contains the strongest avowals of his anti-slavery opinions; aim yet there is nothing in it, absolutely no thing wliieh should injure Mr. Webster in the estimation of proslavery men. His opinion is, that every foot of territory in the United States has already ■ received - a fixed and de cided character, either by the laws of nature or of Congress. By his votes, a:id by his speed - es in the Senate, during the discussion of the Compromise Measures, ho is committed in favor of the introduction of- new States, wliieh may be formed out of the territory of Texas, Utah and New Mexico, “with or with out slavery, as their Constitutions may pre scribe, at the time of their admission.” This is an express provision of the act by which Texas was admitted in 1845; and sneaking ®f ten ttonr upon the NoHhern nud JVoitli £asteny boundaries of the republic ; but op posed/° the acquisition of any which lies upOpdts South-Western bowler. Hero are hj/bwn W ords, taken from a letter in favor /f the nuiiexatioii o/ Canada, written in 1849 : “thtrugli ojiposrcl to incorporating with us any district densely peopled u ith the Mexi can race, I should be most happy to fratern ize with our Northern and North Eastern neighbors .” He does not say one word of slavery in this letter ; but every intelligent man must perceive that a system of annexa tion, such ns the one proposed by him, which contemplates the acquisition of no territory which is not by the decree of the Almighty closed against slavery forever, must strength en the cuuse of Free-soil and weaken that of slavery. We ask the voters of Georgia to choose between the position of Mr. Webster and General Scott, upon this point, which must hereafter vitally effect the institution of slavery. At the time when this Buffalo speech was made by Mr. Webster, the Compromise bills had passed, and the question was, whether the Northern people would execute the fugi- i tive slave law. Fanatics, at the North, i preached a law of conscience higher than the 1 Constitution of their country, which they pretended sanctioned its violation. And 1 when Daniel Webster opposed the weight of i his opinion and his influence against their < miserable sophistry.- and denouced them as I of wliieh, Mr. Webster said, on the’ 7th of March, 1850, “7 know no way, I candidly con fess, in u-hich this Government, acting in good faith, as I trust, it always will', ran relieve it selffrom that stipulation and pledge by am/ honest course of legislation whatever.” This provision is also embraced in the bills for the organization ofthe territories of Utah and New Mexico. So that Mr. Webster is com mitted to the doctrine of non-interference by the General Government, on the subject of slavery, in all the territories now within the Union, out of which slave States can, by any possibility, bo formed, and bound to vote for, die admission of these slave States, if the peo ple of any portion of these territories choose to recognise slavery in the Constitution, under which they may organise themselves into a State. With regard to any further acquisi tions of territory, Mr. Webster reiterates in his Buffalo speech his opposition to the ad mission of any more territorry into the Union, whether slave or free, because his objections to such admission are Constitutional—are the same which were entertained and expressed by Mr. Jefferson at the time of tho purchase of Louisiana, and apply with equal force to free as to slavth territory. Here, then, we have a plain statement of Mr. Webster’s opinions upon the subject of the territories; now within the Union, and his unqualified dis approval of any further acquisition of terri tory. ‘To show how completely upon this ■ latter point he reflects the opinions ofthe Inde pendent Whigs of Georgia, who recently nomi nated him for the Presidency, we give below the 9th resolution- ol* their platform : “9. Believing the limits of our Union, ex tending between Oceans, from the British Possessions to the Mexican Republic, are al ready large enough -forall tKe purposes of national prosperity and power, we are utterly opposed to all further acquisitions of'tmitoi y whatever, whether bought with the ti-easy 0 of the country, or the blood of her /w‘ pie.” ‘ ‘ / The opinions of Mr. Webster —of Gen. Pierce, and of'Gen. Scytt, on the slavery, are,'ip mahy respects, Ipriponious. All ot.them vihw it as asocial political eyil; and aH of theni desire i/H8 abolition. But let us contrast tho of Mr. Web ster upon the subject of lusher acquisitions— the.point upon which mo battle between slavery and Free-SoiTO.vet to bo fought and detdtftfined with, tl/opinibirs of Gen, Scott upon the same spAject. Mr. Wei is ter is op posed to any acquisitions, whether they shall streiigtffiu the cause of- or slavery, k/o. seott is hi favor o£acquieitions traitors in his Buffalo speech, every one ap plauded his boldness, and hailed him as the Great'-Djefemttr of thy Constitution. And wheirin the same speech he declared that “he would maintain to jth'e-nihftost of his pow er and in the face of all danger,, the rights of the South under the Constitution, and the rights of the North under the Constitution,” j and called upon God, “to forsake him, and his children, if ever he was found to falter in one or the other,” the whole couniry was im pressed with the conviction, that Daniel Web ster in office would be governed alone by the Constitution of Ids country. The people trusted him when the danger was imminent, and when the public opinion of the North, ar rayd against him, could not drive him from his position. He is trustworthy still. We copy from the Washington Union, of the 31st ot May, 1851, the Metropolitan organ of the Democratic Party', the following comments upon Mr. Y\ ebster’s Buffalo speech, that this contemporaneous testimony, from his oppo nents, may silence those who attack and de nounce this speech. The Vyjon, in a passage following the one we quote,“declares that Mr. Webster had been “great and patriotic” in the battle against Northern fanaticism, and objects to nothing in his Buffalo speech but its Whiggory’fT “We transfer to our columns to-day.the two speeches delivered by this distinguished man to the people of Buffalo. The last has evidently been prepared with great care, and may be considered somewhat in the form of a prosidetial message. After a careful perusal of it, we are freetosay that we have risen from our seats with more favorable impressions of the character of Mr. Webster than we have ever had before. For candor, fairness of statement, and the enthusiasm of honest and patriotic conviction, we have seen no docu ment emanating from the leaders of any party more entitled to commendation. He seeks ■1 1 < ; ■ ) . , ; _ || are on the turf—one is a regular old war horse, a little stiff in the joints from bad man agement, and somewhat troubled with the Botts. He is, however, full of pluck, though good judges say he bolds his head too high for n funr mile circuit. Opposed to him is-a young horse from the Granite- Hills, ’clean limbed, light bodied, head ‘well out, joits Iris feet square to the ground with a springy mo tion, lias rtm well upon the quater Stretch, and has all the points of good wind and bottqin. Old sport smeh are betting on him, two to one, against the field. The tl.i and horse is the old Defender, from Mnssacusett*— * “In truth, he is a notilo Steed, A Tartar of the Ukraine breed” But he has been sadly neglected and knock ed up by drudgery as a dray horse. He fires iip with wonderful energy, notwithstanding, at the tap of the drum ; and as it was impossi ble to hold him back at Baltimore, it has been determined to give him a chance, although at the great disadvantage of being next to the outside. But outside of all comes the jolly’ Free Soiler, from New Hampshire. He is a lively, blackish colored woolly horse, good deal of wind and gas, but not much bottom, rather heavy in flesh for a long heat, but full of deviltry. Everybody believes he will run foul of old Chippewa or Young Hickory from the start, and throw one or the other of them all of a heap, before the race is over. It is very much feared, from a bad habit of his jockeys, i that he will give old Chippewa a horrible fall 1 in turning the short corner of Ohio. In fact, i we have reason to fear that at various points i of the course, the old Massachusetts hay, as I well as Free Soiler, will jostle Seward, the I rider of Chippewa, very roughly, so much 1 so that the knowing ones refuse to bet upon i either the regular whig horse or his rider, i But, Dropping the parreble, each of the four | candidates before the people is a remarkable 1 man. Gen Scott is the greatest military chief tian, and can produce a longer catalogue of i killed and wounded than any hero in the i Union. Mr. Webster is immeasurably the most learned and powerful constitutional i statesman of the day. Gen.

This we conoeive-to be the high vocation of the whig party—this we conceive to be the danger from the supremacy of the other. And on this would we of choice prefer to urge the dims of our party before the people, fair ly discussing the principles and tendencis of each party, and eschewing the system of mere personal disparagement, which we re gret to see so prevalent. Hr. Webster’s Position. The Boston Courier of the 10th inst., says: “Mr. Webster’s health is improving. ’The rtfr, shing breezes of the ocean have already had an improving effect upon him, and Ilia catarrh is subsiding. He finds time to super intend the affairs of his great farm, to fish a little, shoot some, besides attending to tho business of the State Department which be longs to his duties. A few weeks in Marsh field will no .doubt, restore him to perfect health and strlSgth. W e see it stated lious quarters that Mr. \1 ebster contemplates publishing an address to his friends adrjsnig them as to tho course which they ought to pursue, and urging About to refrain troin us ing bis*name’ in connection with the Presi dency. ‘These statements are put forth by eyitors of Scott papers,- —gentlemen who o|>- posed Mr. Webster’s interests at Baltimore, on grounds of private malice, and afterward* exulted in the result of the doings at the Con vention. Mr. Webster Inis written no letter upon the subject of the Presidential election, nor w ill he do so in a “few days.” His friends have not solicited Lis advice as to how they should vote in. November next, as they have not l.e will hardly volunteer it. All specula tion and threats on the part of Mr. Webster’s enemies are useless; they cannot break his silence. General Pierce’* Horse Editors Atlas : A day or two since I was informed by an eye-witness of the facts relating to the story of General Pierce’s horse being shot under him while on inarch to the city of Mexico. My informant was a soldier in the Mexican war, and at this time belonged to Pierce’s body guard, and was acting as such. It was before they reached the National Bridge, I think, that the General’s horse was shot. For, bo it understood, the horse was shot through the neck, and never used after. At the time he was shot he was tied to a bag gage wagon, in the rear ofthe troops, and at tho same time General Pierce was riding in a wagon near the front of the march, at a dis tance of five or six miles from his horse, and be tween w'hom werolsome tour thousand bwi.
