• Sevastopol.—As there seems to be * some doubt as to the correct pronunciation of Sevastopol; we would inform the curious that according to the Penny Cyclopaedia, and its ' decision is adopted by other authorities, the right pronunciation is Se-vas-to-pol, the accent being on the ante-penultimate, and the final syllable pronounced as if it were written pie, and notpol. The pronunciation of Constantinople, Adrianopie, &c.\ may serve as a guide.

Kossuth on the War. " Kossuth has delivered a great speech in England on the war and the errors of the Allies, His view, enforced with his peculiar powers of oraiory, is that the only means of securing the west of Europe against the encroachments of Russia, is the reconstruction of Poland, -followed by the restoration of the other lately subjugated and suppressed nationalities of the continent. He argues that the war has not been properly directed by the Allies, having made their attacks in the wrong places—where the Czar was best able to meet, and probably defeat them. He, months ago, predicted many of the disastrous results now apparent. The speech has made an impression.

[C7"Some of the English papers threaten to dethrone tho Emperor of Russia. The Northern Daily Times said, "France is ready to a man to embark in the overthrow of Russia's power; and England onlyNvaits for the call to hurl the Czar from his throne." Considering the small progress, yet made in the war by the allies against Russia, this threat is not likely to be realized very speedily. When cannon bulls fail to make an impression, hard words are not likely to frighten. "' Satanic Revolvers.—The Russians, it is said, call the revolvers infernal machines, which have been given to their enemy by the devil, and imagine that they will go off whenever required, by invoking his aid ; hence the great terro ' r always evinced whenever these weapons are brought forth.

The Miltonian, regarded as the home organ of Mr. Pollock, states,that Mr. CuYtin is no longer a cand idate for U. S. Senator, but that he has declined in favor of ex-Governor Johnston. To this the Bellefonte Whig, which we presume is the "home organ" o/ Mr; Curtin, replies : Not Correct;—The Miltonian states that Col. Curtin is no longer a candidate for U. S. Senator.
