On ihe complaint of a shipmaster from Norfolk, 'Va. two yellow girls, named Elizabeth George and Bet sy Ben, were last night arrested by Sparks, Homan and Mcrritt, and this morning examined on the charge of the shipmaster, who ac cused them with robbing him of 379 in cash, and his coat, vest and pantaloons. Elizabeth, on Tier examination, stated that on Saturday evening last, she was accosted by the complainant in Orange street, and he accompani ed her home, where he took lodg ings for the night, putting his clothes under his pillow. He had not been in bed long before Betsy Ben and a girl named Francis, came into the room, and insisted that the lodger should hang his clothes on the line. This he re fused to do, whereupon Betsy blew mit the light, snatched the clothes, in one of the pockets of winch the money was deposited, and ran down stairs with the booty. The lodger followed on after her, and cried for the watch, but the thief escaped out of the house. Eliza beth denied any further knowl edge of the money, and Betsy denied any knowledge whatever of the transaction; but the latter wa fully committed for trial on the charge, and the former was discharged. The ' officers above named succeeded in recovering the clothing, and in finding the money behind a coal box at a neighboring corner. JV- F. Paper. liiat Midi r . i . 1. course is necrssiry. I J imr.w of mo belter mode of giving the proper notice or caution than to lay before the reader a few pa-sage in the last week of my bio gr.iphy. The facts are, that on the eve ning of Friday last I found my self suddenly "in the custody of an officer by virtue of warrant, which set forth" and alleged among other things that 1 had in June last cul tivated too intimate an acquaint ance with one Martha M. B. Wes tern, a young ami vagrant spins ter. This young woman had visited a cousin of her at my house, once in March and once in October; between which times I had not seen her. On the fol lowing morning I was ordered by a magistrate to find security to the amount of 300, or to mar ry the damsel or go to jail. Now for n man with a house full of ba bies to convey away the bulk ol his property, was in my view a serious matter, and the jail is no joke, and to marry a woman a body dislikes is the least amusing of all I was in much perplexity, and instead of advising as I ought to have done with eleuer heads than mine, and getting a writhe vent insp. 1 did as Cato and ' 1 .iird llrmri:im liuvc flnni1 heforp me I drank and forgot my sorrow. What passed in the lat ter part of Saturday 1 cannot from my own recollections clearly state. But I learn from others that my opinion of matrimony seemed to grow brighter with every ghis; and that the justice and const.ible having exhausted their patience in waiting for mv decision, I stood up before the presiding magistrate and held Miss Weston's hand w hile the jus tice attempted to marry us, and while both the ladv and myself were uttering sentiments any thing but conjugal. On Sunday I found myself ra tional; I sought an interview with the lady and heard her full confession of what I knew from the beginning, that she hud com mittal perjury. She further ad mitted that her pressing calamities had all been feigned: that she had proceeded in her plot till frighten ed by its very success, she deter mined to tell the truth, a medical gentleman was able to confirm her confession, and w hat I had asserted in vain to the civil autho rity and all my other friends, was now clear as preaching, namely, that they had the wrong pig by the ear or rather that thev had no occasion to meddle with the ear of any pig at all. INow what 1 wish to have un derstood is this, that I maintain I am a single man. I have already been dunned for some of this wretched woman's debts, but 1 have not paid them, and 1 will not pay them. Lgt no one trust her on my account for she is not my wife. I will fight this question withnv last ninepence. " ALFRED HARRIS. Ikattleboro,' Dec. 11, 1834. llcmarhtllt hwcnlion. The following is taken from the Lou don Morning Chronicle of Janu ary 1, where it is published as an article of intelligence: Pemartcablc When the proper ties of steam and its power were first ascertained, it was supposed bunion genius could extend no further; still, since then we have had our streets and houses lighted by gas, and now we are to have mil rowldnrp; warmed ana our UUI I Ott.HW-' - - provisions dressed without the use of "fire, flame, smoke, steam-gas, oil, spirit, chemical preparation, or anv dangerous substance wnat soever."

It is made of brass, is about 22 inches high, 12 inches wide, and six deep, has the ap pearance of a miniature chest ol drawers, and is surmounted by an inverted crescent, which is hoi low for the purpose ol containing water. It is called "Wenn's So lar Stove,' and is healed by "elementary heat," produced (ac cording to the words of the inven tor) by "separate and combinei elements." It may be used with the greatest safety in ships, am in manufactories and warehouses w here in consequence of the com bustible nature of the stock fires are prohibited.

From the Pacific Ocean. The editors of the New York Gazelle learn by the arrival ol the Vermont. Lieut. Davis, that the new constitution of Peru had been read and sworn to throughout the several Stales of the Republic and that the country was quiet. Gen. Gamarra had fled to Bolivia. Chili was tranquil, but an erup tion was feared at the close of the present administration The French Minister on account of some difficulty with the Govern ment had left Santiago and would hold no further intercourse with the authorities. The civil war continued to rage at Guayaquil in August, with little prospect of a reconciliation between the two parties. The city had been afflic ted with a sort of plague, which had carried off about 3,000 inhab itants. New Locomotive Engine. We learn that an experiment is making in England, to ascertain the character of a new locomotive power on land and water, which gives great promise of success. The Engine is moved by some gaseous agent connected with, or produced by Mercury, exposed to heat. A steamboat has actually been propelled by this new power with great velocity. We will endeav or to furnish our readers with the earliest information on tin subject. And by the way, if certain ex periments succeed, now making by one of our own citizens, with steam power applied directly lo arms upon a shaft carrving a wa ter wheel, and which is said to have been fully tried at Syracuse, the present form of Steam En gines for boats and rail ways, will be shortly abandoned.
