The Recent Great Freshet. We might fill our entire sheet this week with tho details of the calamities and destruction of property,- caused by the terrible flood of last week. Along the Schuylkill the consequences Trere most frightful. In Tnmaqua, in the vicinity of Heading, and all along that region, the account- of distress appeal to every humane heart for active sympathy. Along the Lehigh the destruction was not quite so great; but enough was felt to excite in every one the hope that wc may for a long time ho spared another such a flood. Tho foundation of the Lehigh bridge at this place, was so much weakened, by the washing around the abutments, that all travel, by teams, over it, has been suspended for the past week. The .workmen, however are busily engaged in repairing the injury, and in the course of a short time it is expected they will complete the Jwork. v .

The Doylestoicn Democrat thinks that the resolution passed by the Federalists of this county, dispensing with the Delegate system in their nominations, and running their candidates on a sort of scrub race plan db volunteers, was dictated by Caleb J?. Tailor, the defeated Federal candidate for Congress of Bucks county. The Democrat adds that Caleb " will no doubt be out this fall in Lehigh county as a volunteer candidate."" Very likely! But let him come. The Democrats of Lehigh can detect the donkey of Federalism, even though he be clothed in the Lion's skin. -If Mr. Taylor will come up and give ns another (ico hour's speech, similar to that he gave in the Cotirt House on a former ©ccasion, we will have no fears of the result. His defeat will be still more overwhelming than before. By the way, tho people of this county are very well satisfied with the Hon". Thomas Ross, and are determined that he shall continue to represent them on the floor of Congress, provided" our neighbors of ...

KF'The amount of Suffering and Destitution which have overtaken the inhabitants of the lower part of our city, can scarcely be imagined by any one who has not been acquainted with the real extent of damage done by the late disastrous freshet. More than one hundred families have been literally stripped of everything they possessed in the world, and left without a root to shelter them,,with not a vestige of their household goods, and in marjy cases with neither a particle of clothing or a morsel of food. The sufferers are mostly poor and industrious mechanics and laborers, with their families, and their destitute condition calls loudly upon the prompt exercise of the charitable sympathies ot their fellow-citizens who were fortunate enough to escape the disaster. The Councils have acted with commend able promptitude, in appropriating §n,000 towards the immediate relief ol the sufferers ; and a number of benevolent ladies have taken in hand, with much success, the task of collecting...

New Church at Bethlehem. The ceremonies and. services usually connected with the laying of a cornerstone, took place at the .flourishing borough of Bethlehem, a few days ago. The bui Idling will be a very convenient one and well constructed edifice,- and occupied "by the German Reformed and Lutheran denominations. Several neighboring ministers of the Gospel, besides the resident clergy 0' Bethlehem were present. The excellent church music of that Borough elevated the devotions of the large assembly, which would no doubt have been much larger if the weather had not been wet and unfavorable. The church edifice will be large—fortyfive by sixty feet, and occupying a bandsome elevated situation at the upper end of the town, will add considerably to the already beautiful appearance of that ancient plaee. The erection of this church is something especially new for Bethlehem, where for more than a century, our good Moravian brethren, have had the exclusive convenience the privileges of ...

The Late Storm has done considerable damage at Troy, New York. On- Lake Erie its effects were fejt severely. The Jenny Lind Fever.—The tickets for Jenny's concert were sold on Saturday last, and the first seat was bought by a distinguished hatter of New York for $225. Nobody seemed anxious to imitate the ambitious hatter, and the seats afterwards brought prices"v_rying from $35 to $8, which realize the snug sum of §10,000.— This leaves about five thousand tickets Un sold, which will bring an average of four dollars each, making the proceeds of the first concert amount to about $30,000, the largest receipts that have ever been made at any public place ot amusement on this continent. The New York Post Says a welthy pill doctor had declared that he would buy the first ticket at any price, not because he cared anything about singing, but as the cheapest mode ol advertising his name and pills, which are identified with his name pretty universally over the country, for he wisely c...

The Kins and the Seamstress, The foreign news by the America"refers to the marriage of the King of Denmark to a dressmaker. We learn that the prjnce has been niarried twice to princesses, and has separated from them, not being able to live in harmony, a difficulty in which he has not always been thought innocent.— His first wife "Was his cousin Wilhelmina, whom he married in 1828, when he was Crown Prince. After living with her several years, they quarrelled so that his father banished him from Copenhagen ; in 1837 they were divorced, and the year after she married another man. The Crown Prince waited three years before following her example. His second wife was the Princess Caroline of Mecklenburg Strelitz. From her he was separated" in 1846; their marriage being ol about five years' duration. Divorce seems to be quite common in the princely families of Denmark. It remains to be seen whether the King will be a better husband-to bis new wile than to his former ones.
