Norfolk Beacon. Convent. The Church of Rome has appropriated $60,000 for the establishment of a Catho lic Convent at Bertrand, Michi gan territory. Droll Taste. A person who advertises himself, in a western paper, to be a small farmer, and in want of a wife, offers a pre mium of $100 to any femalecan didate for matrimony who will become 'bone of his bone," and change labours with him; that is to say, she to take charge of the ploughing, the planting, the pigs, tt cetera, and he of the pies, the puddings, the babies, et cetera. It be should succeed in his ' search for a wife," under these conditions, the modus operandi of the experimentalist would be well worth witnessing. IMPORTANT IF TRUE. 03 A slip from the office of the New York Journal of Com merce, dated on Saturday, 10 M. contains the following: "Important rumor. An Ex l from the Office of the Boun ty Gazette, published at Calais, (Me.) and dated the 17th inst. ilates that the oris M un? had ar- riv'ed at St. Andrews from Liv erpool, bringing intelligence that lhe French Chambers had dis sIved without making any ap propriation for the American pms. The Mung is stated to ave brought Liverpool papers 10 he 29th March. ."We think there must be some Mistake nhrm in. r.. a-1 ach'ices from Paris, direct, ere as late within five or six jys as could have been contain lr the papers above mention , fJ At that date every thing in j efprd to the claims wore a favor- jle aspect. It was known that ie Committee would report . "an.mously in favor of the : ",rns and it was calculated, that would be sustained by a ma- , lly of not less than 100 in the . haoer. Still, all ihings are J possible, and thai is the most that can be said in behalf of ihe rn- mor The Report of the Com n.iiiee was to be made on the 2 1 st of March, but might be postponed till the 23rd, (Mon ti ay. j "In passing from Paris to Lon don, Irom London to Liverpool, Irom Liverpool to St. Andrews, from St. Andrews to Calais, from Calais here, there are a good ma ny chances of mistake, even sup posing the story was not a stock jobbing operation at the outset." A proof slip of the above tenor was also transmitted from the New York Mercantile Advertiser. The Boston Courier, in noticing the rumor says 'As our previous accounts from England, were only to March 24, people were rather excited on change, and speculations were for a moment suspended, but as peo pie began to look at the matter, it was considered a hoax, and every thing went on again as before." Oo the other hand, the Boston Atlas says of this report There are many reasons for be lieving it true. Our readers will remember that the 21st of March was the day assigned for the dis cussion of the American Indem nity Bill in the Chamber of Dep- uues. uur latest aovices Irom Paris, previous to the above, do not cover the proceedings of the 21st. The lat accounts stated that the bill would meet consider able opposition, but not enough, probably to cause its rejection.,. This was the condition of the question. Between that time and the 26th allowing, three davs for the transmission of intelli gence from Paris to Liverpool; the House might well have acted on the Bill, rejected it, and have been in consequence dissolved. Th is is made more probable from the fact that Mr. Living ston's letter to ihe President prob ably reached France at this precise period. this would alone have been sufficient to lead to the re jection of the Bill. This result was anticipated on the first pro mulgation of that letter in this country. Latest from Mexico another insurrection. By the packet ship Congress, we have received Vera Cruz papers to the Oth inst. They bring us intelligence of a new revolutionary movement in the South, headed by General Alvarez, which has for its object the deposition of Santa Anna from the Presidency, the dissolution of the present Congress, and the restoration of the late Vice Presi dent, Don Gomez Farias, to the Executive Chair. A passenger in the Congress informs us that four States, viz. Zaciifecas, San Luis, Morelia, and Durango, had already seconded the movement. It will be recollected that some months since, the New Mexican Congress, which was itself very summarily constituted, contrived to get rid of Farias by abolishing the office of Vice President which he held. Farias was a great friend to Reform; and the present movement appears to be an effort of the Reform Party to struggle back into power. Apart from the evils of revolution, we should cordially wish them success. JV. Y. Jour, Com. Troubles in Brazil. The brig Baltimore, at Salem in 2G days from Para, brings the following intelligence. On the 19th and 21st February, another revolution took place, in which Melcher, the President, and some others were killed. Vinagre, Melcher's ac complice in the revolution of the 7th January, is now at the head of affairs, but not likely to remain. A report says 500 men are now preparing, in the country, for an attack on the town in a day or two. Letters from Maranham, of of the 20th of March, state that a frigate and three small vessels, with several hundred men, were going to Para to restore tranquili ty. This has given umbrage to the President, and, at an assem blage of citizens, they determin ed on giving fight to the Maran ham expedition. H. M.
