AYc have been permitted to make tho fol lowing extract from a private letter of a gentleman to a friend in this city: " Marion*. Ala., Oct. lfith, 1§5 “ I am sorry to pform yofiTin this* nection. of a v&y sad occurrence which took place hero on last (Sunday) night, about 12 o’clock—that is. the burning down of * Howard College.’ There were sleeping at the time, in the third and fourth stories of the building, about 20 or 28 young men and two negro men ; all of whom were re quired to jump from the windows, a distance of from 30 to 40 feet to the ground below. And, horrible to tell, 22 of the number were mangled in a frightful manner, some more and some less. 1 have just come in from a visit to them -with my very heartsick. Some of the boys arc burned very badly, in addition to other injuries. Our town is in mourning, and looks gloomy enough. I learned, a few moments since, that one of the black men was dead ;“he rushed down through the flames to the door. Two or three of the boys are expected to die—the rest will probably recover. There is, how ever, no knowing exactly the extent of their injuries. I trust nil things are better than we now think. The College building, with everything in it, is in ruins. Nothing was saved, as 1 understand. It is supposed now that the building was set on fire, though I cannot at present 1 .relieve it. Such a fiendish act could scarcely be perpetrated by any one in this community. The truth will be known in a few days, I suppose.’’ A postscript says another had died.— Chronicle rf- Sentinel.

This is of course attributable to tho continued cool weather. On Monday we heard of very few cases, and yesterday we heard of none. This is a great improve ment, and we hope it may be permanent, of which we think there is little doubt, if the weather continues as cool as now.

His generous impulse prevailed, and seizing the boy gently by the coat, he urged him along until they chanced to come to a confectioner’s, when he bought him two sticks of peppermint candy, and then conducted him home.

The idea of a Boston girl, who goes to operas, patronizes Jullien’s concerts, waltzes once a week, cats ice cream, rides in the omnibus, wears satin slippers, some times kisses the editor, going to Tennessee, except she goes there as the wife of one of your first-class citizens, editors excepted, is truly ridiculous. Wouldn’t a girl in a silk dress, with lace-edged pantlets and shiney gaiter boots, look well trudging through the mud and mire of Nashville to an old barn of a printing office, while in one comer of the same room two old darkies arc jerking away at an old Ramage press, and in the other the editor is squirting tobacco juice over the floor ? Wouldn't she be in a* nice fix when the editor and some great brute of a fellow whom he offended got playing at the game of shooting their revolvers across the office at each other’s heads? Who would make the fire when the had run off and the editor was drunk? Who’d go home with her dark nights ? Who would take her out to rido on Saturday afternoon, and go to church with her on Sunday ?— No, sir; a Boston girl won’t go to Tennes see for love nor money. She can get enough of both nearor home.” Probable Prize Fight.—Tom Hyer is in Cincinnati, it is said, on “professional busi ness ”—that is, he has entered into a wager with a man named McGowan, of St. Louis, for a prize fight, the sum staked being three thousand dollars.

News from Europe, We publish this morning very full details of European news by the Africa, by the subsequent arrivals of the Washington, with four days later advices, and the Niag ara with three days later news. It will be seen that the allies, since the battle of Alma, have gained decided advantages over the Russians, and have commenced a regular bombardment of Sebastopol, while Menschi- koff, with a force of twenty thousand Rus^ sians at last advices, was keeping the field at some distance North of the city awaiting reinforcements. How long Sebastopol trill be able to held out, invested as it is by sea and land, with the approaches to the city in possession of the enemy, is, of course, entirely problematical, though if the Rus sians make anything like as obstinate a de fence as the Turks did at Silistria, consid ering the superiority of Sebastopol as a military stronghold, we may reasonably ex pect several weeks to elapse before a capitu lation, even supposing no further reinforce ments arrive in the meantime. •9*A public meeting was held a few days ago in West Point, Ga., at which a resolu tion was adopted instructing the Town Council to subscribe $50,000 to the con struction of the proposed Railroad from Columbus to West Point. The Columbus Times says, in case Lagrange will, follow suit by rabscribing $100,000, it is author ized to pledge Columbus to the amount of $200,000 for the enterprise. A gentleman informs the N. Y. Daily Times that “on coming down on the Hudson River Railroad train, and upon the seat be hind him sat two rough, brawny, swearing men; one of whom was rehearsing to the other in a confidential tone, the manner of his escape from the wreck of the Arctic.- He said, among other things, that they did not mean to let them upper fellows get the start of them with the beats; and added that he himself pitched two or three of them out, to make room for his friends.” It is greatly to be feared that we have but an imperfect idea of all the scenes enacted on board that sinking ship.

Mr. Lord, as we notice by the press, has given much satisfaction in those places where he has taught, by his talents and gentlemanly conduct.

Of this amount, the Milledgeville Recorder says that Col. Bond, of Macon, succeeded last week in raising fifty thousand dollars of stock in the neighborhood of Milledgeville. The proposed extension is an important one, as^it will penetrate the rich cotton regions cf the Flint and Chatta hoochee rivers. Texas Cotton Crop.—The Galveston News, in a long review of the prospects of the present Cotton Crop of that State, comes to the conclusion that there will not be over two-thirds of an average crop. The Netos says: “The amount of land planted in Texas is supposed to be nearly one-third more than last year, and it is possible that this excess may make up for the deficiency in the yield, so as to make the total crop of the State about what it was last year. Our present opinion, however, is, that the total crop of the State will fall short of that of last year.” We see by the Milledgeville papers of Tuesday that the Bank of Georgia has declared a dividend of five per cent, for tho last six months.

Among the passengers who arrived by the Africa yesterday afternoon, were two persons from Paris whose names arc inti mately associated with two of the greatest celebrities of France. They were Jerome Bonaparte and Felix Raphael. The former, who is a wealthy resident of Baltimore, and son of Prince Jerome Bonaparte, by Miss Elizabeth Patterson, returns from Eu rope, haring placed his son in the French army. The young Bonaparte has taken the same grade there as he held here, hav ing been made a Lieutenant in the Seventh Dragoons. He is at present stationed at St. Cloud, and after a little more prepara tion, will be turned out a genuine French officer, ready for active service. The Emperor of the French has taken a great fancy to the American Bonaparte’s, and having made not only an officer, but a Frenchman of the young Baltimore Bona parte, he has also succeeded in pursuading tho father to give up his estates and home in this country, and remove with most of his family to France. My informant states that a princely title awaits Jerome Bona parte, the republican, and that its glittering promise has had not a little to do in convin cing him of the policy of becoming a Frenchman and a noDleman. No provision, nor titular honors are in reserve for his mother, Miss Elizabeth Patterson, so she will remain in Baltimore. Her illegally divorced husband, Prince Jerome, has an other wife, who would prefer to have num ber one remain on this side the water. The Bonaparte’s are only mortal after all, and as easily dazzled by the pomp and promises of Courts as any of us.

Details «T tk* Africa’s The Cunard mail steamship , Capt. Harrison, arrived at half-past three o'clock* the innocent Lapiaadim on the toor* y afternoon. She left Liverpool on Saturday noon, the 7th inst. The great news brought by the Baltio, of the blowing np of Fort Constantine, the of ten Russian ships of war, the foil of Sebastopol and tlfc slaughter of twenty-five thousand human beings, tarns out to have been false from beginning to end. The news by the Africa is more moderate and reasonable in its character. There had been continual had established j—the allied armies ieir base of operations at Balakiava on the morning of the 28th, and were preparing to march without delay upon Sebastopol. The Agamemnon and outer vessels of war were in port at Balakiava, where there are facilities for disembarking the battering trains. Prince Menschikoff was in the field with 20,000 men, expecting reinforcements; the fortification of Anapa having been burned by the Russians, and its garrison marching to the scene of action. The allies were on the river Baalbeck, ten miles from Sebastopol. Indeed, Sebastopol was invested on the 27 th. Cholera was very severe in the garrisons at Sebastopol. It is stated that the city is provisioned for only three months, and that the crews of the fleet are already on three- fourths rations. The Russian steamer Taman, 3 guns, es caped out of Sebastopol on the 19th ult., and took two Turkish transports and car ried them into Odessa. On the 22d September, to the delight of the inhabitants of Galatz, the first merchant vessel which had entered the port in four months arrived. The Danube was opened between Galatz and the Sulina, but opposite to Isaktchti there was a Russian bridge which connected Bessarabia with a Danubi- an island. The London Times publishes the following extraordinary news on the faith of a King ston (Jamaica) correspondent: We have recent accounts from St. Domin go, to the-effect that the United States frig ate Columbia, bearing a commodore’s flag, accompanied by a corvette and steamer, hod arrived at the port of Samana, and demand ed the cession of that place, as well as a certain adjacent territory. A general offi cer and some engineer officers are on board the Columbia. Messengers have been des patched to Port-au-Prince for the purpose of informing the authorities about the matter, and it is expected that the Emperor Sou- iouque will be on his march to that part of the island, in order to repulse, if possible, these daring invaders. We have it on good authority, that an American fleet has sailed from New York to Greytown, for what ob ject we are at a loss to conceive. The fleet, it is said, consists of two frigates, three cor vettes, and two steamers, in fighting order, and commanded by a commodore (they boost) of consummate bravery. A London letter, under the date Oct 6th, gives the following particulars: It is now proved beyond a doubt that the wholo story of the capture of Sebastopol is a myth, nn invention. It however, in no manner detracts from the victory of the allies on the Alma. The accounts of that victory is official. The de tails of the fighting are daily expected. It also appears certain that the victorious troops pushed on to the Kateha, the second river; that another sanguinary engagement took place; that the Russians then retreat ed to the third entrenchment, on the river Balbek. Here reliable intelligence stops. It is stated that the heights which command Sebastopol are already in their possession ; but I warn you against believing the big headed announcements you will find in many of the papers. The only additional piece of official news received is a despatch from Lord Stratford de Redcliffe, the English Ambassador at Constantinople. It announces that, on the 28th September, the heavy siege artillery of the allied armies was landed by the ships of the allied squadron, without opposition, at Balakiava, a port with deep water, South of Sebastopol. A certain number of troops, of course, landed with this artillery. From Balakiava to Sebastopol there is an excel lent road, and the allies therefore were ad vancing on two sides on Sebastopol. Prince Menschikoff had retreated with 20,000 men to the heights of Baktchi Sarai, there awaiting reinforcements. The Rus sian fort of Anapa had been blown up by his orders, and the garrison was hastening to join him. This is official. Should any additional news come in before the post closes, you shall have it. The battle of the Alma was very sangui nary. A telegraphic despatch from Con stantinople, upon which you may place full reliance, gives the number of English killed and wounded as follows:—9G officers, 1,895 rank and file, 114 seargeants, and 23 drum mers. The heights of the Alma wore defended by 45,000 Russians and 100 cannon. The French troops did not suffer so much ; they were on tho right, near the sea, and partial ly protected by the guns of the fleet; the English were in the centre, the Turks on the left. The charge of the English army up the steep ascent in the face of a hundred guns, pouring volleys into them of ball and grape, and musketry, was heroic—they took the guns at the point of the bayonet. The French and Turks behaved equally well.— Prince Napoleon is reported to have had a horse shot under him. As soon as the news of the fall of Sebas topol was believed at Vienna, the Emperor ordered his Ambassador at Paris to express to Louis Napoleon the satisfaction he, (the Emperor Francis Joseph,) felt at the suc cess of the allied armies in the Crimea.— This is the crudest cut of all to Russia.— The King of Prussia also thought it a fit ting opportunity to express his good wishes, adding that he had all along given his mor al support to tho Western Powers. Proba bly what most astonished—perhaps alarmed —their two German Majesties, was the un bounded, uncontrolled joy and delight of the good citizens of Vienna and Berlin when they heard the news. In despite of spies and police the health of the allied ar mies was drank in every pot house, cabcrct, “ kneip,” and at all the private dinner ta bles of t-lie two capitals. Prussia has, however, been snubbed—de servedly so. The representative of France aud Eng land have announced to Baron Manteuffel, the Prussian Foreign Minister, in very tem perate but plain terms, that they must beg to decline any further attempts at so called mediation on the part of Prussia—that such attempts will not be listened to in any form or shape, and that Prussia must regard herself, under existing circumstances, as self-excluded from all further participation in the Oriental question, in so far as relates to her connection with the maritime Powers. The lesser German powers are begining to show a penchant towards Austria, which Power will not neglect the opportunity to obtain a permanent preponderancy in the Frankfort Diet. Austria appears now inclined to side openly with the Western Powers; but small thanks are due to her for coming in when the battle’s fought and won, to plant her yellow and black striped banner upon the dead body of the foe. Hod Russia been victorious, who dare assert that Austria would not have stepped forward with her armies to bring the Western Powers to “reasonable terms” for peace? Spain is unquiet. There have beon seri ous riots at Burgos and Malaga, owing to the rise in the prices of bread.

Marsiilles, Oct. . The Fury, from Constantinople, which she left on the 27th, has on board Lord Burghers, with despatches from Lord Rag. Ian for the English government. Sebastopol was invested on the 27 th. The second line of the defence was carried, and the place entirely surrounded. The Russians are shut up in Sebastopol, which was to have been attacked by sea and land. One account states the Russians had some eight line of battle ships at the en trance of tlie harbor; another account says four. At the battle of the Alma three thousand prisoners were taken. The struggle was nerce. After the defeat on the Alma, the Russians regained their fortification, with, out making a halt. The Zouaves, Tirail. leurs, and Scotch Fusiliers distinguished themselves. Constantinople was illuminated in honor of the battle of the Alma. The Lavaley had arrived at the Crimea. In addition to the above, the following de tails have been brought in various telegraph ic despatches: The Moniteur, in announcing the occupa tion of Balakiava, adds, the allies have al ready made it a considerable place. The allied armies are in communication with the fleets. A safe and practicable road leads to Sebastopol, and the allies are bow firmly established in the Crimea. The va rious columns of the army had to cress sev eral rivers in succession, in order to turn the gulf Sebastopol and enter the mountain country, before they could arrive at Baiak- lava.

We understand that at a meeting of the Boat'd of Directors of the South Carolina Railroad, held here on Friday, that body passed resolutions setting forth their deter mination, that unless the Post Office Depart ment continue their old schedule at the pres ent rate of compensation, or increase it for the new schedule proposed, they will refuse to carry the mails after the 1st. proximo.— Columbia South Carolinian. It is muoh to be regretted that the Post master-General cannot effect an arrangement with the Carolina road of running the sched ule which has been proposed, the object of which is to facilitate the transmission of the great Northern and Southern Mail sev eral hours. If we are not mistaken, the terms offered by the Department have been accepted by all the other railroad companies between Washington and New Orleane, and the new arrangement is only prevented from going into operation by the refusal of the South Carolina Railroad to accept a com pensation equal to that paid to any other road, and greater than is paid to many com panies for similar service. AVe cannot un derstand why the South Carolina Company should feel itself justified in demanding more than is deemed sufficient for like service by the Central, the Georgia and other South ern Roads ; and in view of the great public necessity for the proposed change, and the benefits which it would confer on the busi ness public of the whole South, we are con strained to regard the course of the Directors as illiberal and discreditable to the company whose interests they represent. Something is due from our railroad corporations to the public, who have a right to expect that they will make any reasonable concession, for the purpos of placing our section on as good a tooting in regard to mail facilities as that of other portions of the Union, where rail roads are in operation.—Savannah Morning Neics.
