VTZff Government Forces Defeated by Alvarez.,
Baltimore, Nov. 17. The New 'Orleans
papers of Saturday last, as late as dueT are to
hud. .They contain the de ails of the Mexican
nexys received by the steamship Orizaba, aifd
whfch, in some particulars Js quite the reverse
of the account received by telegraph direct from
KeV Orleans. ,, It appears that, in the battle

General Alvarez had issued an address to the
citizens of Mexico, denouncing the Dictator,
Santa Anna, and closing with "Down with
the tyiaut death to the despot I"
.. Thk Hon. J. C. Dosr.ix and the Sknator
shii'. r-AVe perceive by the Washington Union
that this gentleman, whose elevation to the
United States Senate was anxiously desired by
hosts of admirers in and out of the State, has
written a letter to his friends at home, express
ing a desire that his name may not be used in
connection with the Senatorship to be supplied
hy the approaching Legislature.
While his friends in the State will sincerely
regret this determination of Mr Dobbin, it is
nevertheless gratifying to reflect that his ser
vices will not be lost to the country but he will
continue to occupy his present distinguished
position, which he has filled with such marked
ability and signal success, since the inauguration
of the present administration. He has admin
istered the affairs of the Navy Department in a
manner alike creditable to himself, his State
and his country: and under his continued
management, that arm of the public service will
be rendered infinitely more efficient than ever
It is also gratifying to North Carolina pride
to witness the strong hold which her favorite
son has upon the confidence and esteem of Pre
sident Pierce. Ulizabeth Citv Pioneer.
Failures of the Administration. The Ad
ministration has failed to commit itself to the
speculating policy of its predecessor.
It lias tailed to give way to the assaults of
the abolitionists.
It has failed to permit them to violate the
Constitution of the United States.
It has failed to yield to the insolent demands
of foreign governments.
It has failed to oppose the principles of pop
ular sovereignty.
It has failed to follow in the foot-stens of its
vitrfny-Tniportant to the peace, tranquility and
welfare of our country.
It has failed to commit itself to Native Ameri
canism, Jvnovv-otliiirsism. and fanaticism tren-
These are among the failures of the Adminis
tration. VV e do not yonder that they excite
the ire of the fusionists and whig leaders; but
we do wonder that this ire should be so public
ly and so bitterly manifested. Cleveland Plain
dealer. In order to let the South see the platform
on which the know-nothings of Massachusetts
have triumphed, (and especially iu face of the
efforts now making to inoculate the South with
that dangerous fanaticism,-) we copy the fol
lowing resolutions adopted by a recent conven
tion of that party before the last election :
"Resolved, lhat we had with hope and ioy
the recent brilliant successes of the republican
party in the btates ot Maine, Iowa, Indiana
Pennsylvania, and Ohio, and we trust these
victories, are a loresliauow or others soon to
come, iy which ine iree taies snan present one
solid phalanx of opposition to the aggressions
of slavery.
"Resolved, That in the present chaotic con
dition of parties in Massachusetts, the only star
above the horizon is the love of human liberty
and the abhorrence of slavery, and. that it is
the duty of all anti-slavery men to rally around
the republican party as an organization which
invites the united action ot t lie people on the
one transcending question of slave dominion
which now divides the L mon.
A few evenings since a young lady named
Ellen Tompkins, residing ou Race above Thir
teenth street, dressed herself to go to 'the ball
given by Reeves and Mine, in Mam Street Hall.
After she had completed her toilet, and while
waiting for her partner, she was seized with au
apoplectic lit, and fell to the floor. When
picked up she was found to be dead. The as
tonishment of her friends and partner at her
unexpected and sudden demise can be better
imagined than described. Cincinnati Gazette.
Utah. The special Washington
dent of the New York Times savs:
"The President still suspends the appointment
of a successor to Brigham Young. There is
undoubtedly a good reason for this. I hazard
little in saying that the President has deter
mined to make the issue with the Mormons, to
see at once whether they intend to maintain
the attitude of defiance to the Federal author
ity which their present government aud spiritual
leader Has assumed lor them. 1 oung certainly
will not be re-appointed, and ought not to be.
If his successor is to have a" struggle with the
people of Utah, it is better that he should go
out armed with all the moral power of the
Government possible; and to this end probably
he will not be appointed until the Senate is in
session to confirm the nomination at once. A

Short way of Getting a Divorce. The
Albany (New York) Argus says that the fol
lowing notice appears in a German newspaper
of that city ; ,
"As my husband, Joseph Rentz, has left me
without any. provocation, and I have seen or
heard nothing of him this last year past, I here
by declare that unless he returns in three days
from this date I shall take it as a divorce, and
shall marry again immediately.

. The Lunatic Asylum.
We accepted the polite invitation of Dr. E. C.
Fisher, the Superintending Physician, a few
days since, to visit the North Carolina Asylum
for the insane in the course of coustruction near
this City. -
The length of the entire building is 726 feet,
the width of. wings 40 feet, width of central
portion of building 80 feet with front of 140
feet.,- There is a handsome dome on top of the
central building, commanding an extensive view
of the City and. surrounding country.; The
wings are designed forpatieuts, one for females
and the other for males,, and are three stories
in height. Each story is divided longitudinally
bv corridors, with cross line of separation for
rttViiiWtl ofpstfTien tap each cmTjrtorCOJTtatnrnjr
sitting room, dinjpg room, attendants rooms,
bath room, space for pumb waiter, &c. The
windows of the patient's apartments are to be
supplied with cast iron sashes, the upper half of
which will be glazed, and the lower half with
out glass, with a wooden glazed sash adjacent
to it, to be hoisted when necessary or desired;
thus preventing escapes through ihe windows,
and furnishing at the same time the necessary
ventillation. The appearance ou the exterior of
the window will be that, of single frame work.
The central building, four stories in height, is
designed for the officers and other persons con
nected with the institution. It rests upon brick
walls, 3 feet thick at lirst, and 2 feet thick
to the roof. There is a inagniBcent arcade in
front, resting on massive brick columns or pil
lars. The first floor of central building is divi
ded by an immense hall into two suites of rooms
and offices in front, with a commodious dining
room, rooms for Steward and Matron on one
side having a dumb waiter closet, and on the
ot her side apothecaries' apartment. The ceiling
of the hall is supported by four handsome col
umns of cast iron. The second floor is arranged
in somewhat similar style, and is designed for
private chambers. The third floor contains bed
rooms, and a large Chapel for religious exercises
on Sundays. The base of the rotunda suppor
ting cupola above will be used as water tank
rooms, where a constant supply of fresh water
will be kept for distribution over the building
by means of pipes.
The walls of the basement, which extend
throughout the entire building, are of stone and
very substantially constructed. The middle of
the basement will be the warm air chamber,
with a passage on each side for purposes con
nected with the building, one of them being ap
propriated to the landing of dumb waiters from
the rooms of the patients above, the other will
be occupied by the main soil pipe running hori
zontally, and connected with the vertical pipes
from water closets above. The air will be heat
ed by steam contained in coils of pipe placed iu
sections of the chamber and will be conveyed to
into corridors and rooms throughout the entire
building. Each corridor will likewise contain
foul air flues for the escape of foul air to the
external atmosphere through ventilators in4hc
centre oiLthe two wings; and fresh air will be
constantly introduced iuto the warm air cham
ber through apertures ou the sides of its walls.
By the aid of a large fan in connection with
the steam apparatus it is intended to supply the
Apartments ot the mam building with abundant
currents of fresh air during the summer months,
which will add much to the comfort of all.
The entire building is supplied with gas pipes
for lighting it effectually with rosin gas, to be
manutactured ou the grounds of the Asylum.
This mode of lightiug commends itself both by
its safety and economy, and will be a great
improvement compared with the ordinary
Eighty feet in the rear of the main building
stands the kitchen, which is 80 feet by 40, and
three stories high. The food will be prepared
here, and carried to the basement of the main
building, whence it will be conveyed to the up
per apartments by dumbwaiters, before referred
to. This arrangement is quite important, as it
ensures system and regularity and obviates the
necessity of servants passimr through the main
building with food, &c.
One hundred feet in the rear of the kitchen
stands the boiler house, intended for steam en
gine and boilers. There are rooms here for
engineer, for fuel, fce, aud the floor above will
be used as a laundry and drying room by steam
power. Near this building is a large well, from
which it is expected a sufficiency of water will
be obtained for the institution. " Force pumps,
by steam, will be used for delivering it at points
where it may be needed. Some 10,000 gallons
per day will be required during the summer
The building is to be stuccoed, and is intend
ed to represent light sandstone. The cornice
around the entire building is the subject of ad
miration by every visitor.
The site of the building is most eligible and
commanding. Early steps should be taken for
completing it, for furnishing it, and for making
the necessary enclosures and improvements on
the grounds.
We learn that the institution is designed to
accommodate 250 patients. Judging from a
nea ranees, it will require twelve months more
to finish and fit it for -their reception.
It is but simple justice to J)r Fisher, the in
telligent and accomplished Superintending
Physician, to state that he appears to be tho
roughly informed as to the details of the build
ing, and to be most devoted to his duties. The
Commissioners could have appointed no one
better qualified, by nature and education, than
he is for the responsible post he fills.
Free Trade. The Burlington (Yt.) Senti

vered in that place by Hon. George P. Marsh,
returned U. S. Minister to Constantinople. In

the course of his remarks, .ur .,uucu
the tendency of the nations of the globe toward
free trade. A conviction of the expediency
and desirableness of removing restrictions upon
commerce prevails almost universally abroad.
The people of Europe, he said, would have
custom houses and tariffs abolished, and gradu
ally approximate ta the point of universal free
trade. He had himself, as all knew, labored
earnestly in support of a different policy, but
lie was compelled to believe that the experi
ment would be tried, sooner or later, aud the
day is coming when free trade will prevail the
world over, or at least very small ad valorem
duties be imposed anywhere.

A Story of a Faithful Dog.
The following story is said, by the Ports
mouth Chronicle, to be derived, aa to all ka-'
facts, from a most respectable Quaker family,
whose veracity cannot be doubted: "
"About fifty years ago, in the western port
of the State of New York, lived a lonely widow,
named Mozher. Her husband had been dead
many years, and her ouly daughter was grown
p and married, living at the distance of a
mile or two from the family mansiou. , .
And thus the old lady lived alone iu her
house day and night. Yet iu her conscious in
nocence and trust in Providence, ' she felt safe
and cheerful did her -work onietlv duriixr
iy'I'il?.',!!1 Ht cveutide s.ent sweetly. .
""c murmur, -nowr wc awtwi jta an
extraordinary and' unwonted gloom upon
mind, which was impressed with the apprehen
sion that something strange was about to hap-
I pen to ner or Hers, fto lull was .she of this
thought that she could not stay at home that
day, but must go abroad to give vent to it, by
unbosoming herself to her friends, especially to
her daughter. With her she spent the greater
part of the day, and to her she several times
repeated the recital of her apprehensions. The
daughter as often repeated the assurances that
the good mother had never done injury to aiy
person, ami added, 'I cannot think any one
would hurt you, for you have not an enemy iu
the world.'
As the day was declining, Mrs Mozher sought
her home, but expressed the same feelings as
she left her daughter's house.
On her way home, she called on a neighbor,
who lived in the last house before she reached
her own. Here she again made known her
continued appreheusious, which had nearly ri
pened into fear, and from the lady of the man
sion she received answers similar to those of
her daughter. 'You have harmed no one in
your whole lifetime, surely no one will molest
you. Go home in quiet, and Rover shall go
with you. Here Rover,' said she to a stout
watch-dog that lay on the floor, 'here, Rover,
go home with Mrs Mozher, and te care of
her.' Rover did as he was told. The widow
went home, milked her cows, took care of
everything out of doors, and went to bed as
usual. Rover had not left her for an instant.
When she was fairly iu bed, he laid himself
down upon the outside of the bed, and as the
widow relied on his fidelity, and perhaps chid
herself for needless fear, she fell asleep. Some
time in the night she awoke, being startled,
probably, by a slight noise outside of the house.
It was so slight, however, that she was not
aware of being startled at all, but heard as
soon as she awoke, a sound like the raising of a
window near her bed, which was iu a room on
the ground floor.
The dog neither .barked nor moved. Next
mere wasluiouier sunim, .as H some one was in"
the room and stepped cautiously on the floor.
The woman saw nothing, but now for the first
time felt the dog move, as he made a violent
spring from the bed, and at the same moment
something fell on the floor, sounding like a
heavy log. Then followed other noises, like
the pawing of a dog's feet; but soon all was
still again, and the dog resumed his place on
the bed without, having barked or growled.
This time the widow did not go to sleep im
mediately, but lay awake wondering, yet not
deeming it best to get up. But at last she
dropped asleep, and when she awoke the sun
was shining. She hastily stepped out of bed,
and there lay the body of a man extended on
the floor, dead, with a large knife iu his hand,
which was even now extended. The dog had
seized him by the throat with a grasp of death.
and neither man nor dog could utter a sound
till all was over. This man was the widow's
son-in-law, the husband of her only daughter.
He coveted her little store of wealth, her house,
her cattle, and her land; and instigated by
this sordid impatience, he could not wait for
the decay of nature to give her property up to
him and his, as the only heirs apparent, but
made this stealthy visit to do a deed of dark
ness in the gloom of the night. A fearful reiri
butiou awaited for him. The widow's appre
hensions, communicated to her mind and im
pressed upon her nerves by what unseen power
we know not, the sympathy ot the woman who
loaned her dog, and the silent but certain watch
of the dog himself, formed a chain of events
which brought the murderer's blood upon his
own head, and which are difficult to be explain
ed, without reference to that overruling Provi
dence which numbers the hairs of our heads,
watches the sparrow's fall, and 'shapes our
deeds, rough hew them as we will.'
When to ii Sweet Potatoes to i'res erve
them from Rot. A gentleman who is an ex
perienced farmer remarked in our presence the
other day, that potatoes should be dug when
they got ripe. We were at first a litte sur
prised having never heard of ripe potatoes be
fore, though often enough of raw ones. But a
moment's reflection satisfied us that there must
be good philosophy iu it, for nature very plain
ly indicates the proper time to pluck all other
fruits, aud why not the potatoe ? But how to
tell a ripe potatoe was the question that puzzled
us. 'Simple enough,' replied our informant.
'Pull several fftttatoes from different parts of
your patch, break them and give them time to
dry, aud if the fresh broken parts dry over per
fectly white the potatoe is ripe, and should be
du. But if of a darkish hue, the potatoe is
not ripe and should be left to ripen. If dug
when ripe they will keep, if not they will rot.

A Natural Curiositv. "We have several times
heard of a spotted negro man belonging to Mr.
A. F. Bruce, of Saline county. A few days ago
we called to see him. His master informed us
that the negro is about forty-five years old. At
twelve he was copper color all over; at twenty
years of age he was spotted like a leopard ; since
that time he has been white nearly all over. He
is now undergoing a second change the black
spots increasing in size and number. The parts
of his skin which are white are very white and
clear, and as smooth as the skin of any laboring
white man. The Teins in his arms hare the sama
blue appearauce of those of the fairest skinned
white man. The hair and features show that
he is an unmixed African. He is stout, and
always has been healthy, except a rheumatism
in one leg, which is of late origin. In the hands
of Baruum Joe would be a fortune.-r- Lexington
