The circumstances under 'which it was perpetrated are as follows : A giTl of about 16 years of age, lamed Sarah M. Dolsonmans, of Goshen, who was on a visit to her aunt, Mrs. Jennings, was taken to the Bow cry Theatre on Monday evening by a young man, her cousin. After the conclusion of the perfor mance he invited her to take oysters, at an oys ter cellar in the Bowery. She refused, and re mained outside while he was taking refreshment. While waiting for him she was seised by several young men, one or whom placed his arm around her neck, and rasping her neckerchief, twisted it round her throat so tight that she could not scream ; another of the party, named Alexander Edwards, then caught her by the waist, and o thers by her lgs.

1 BISHOP OMDKRDOMK, 1 Of New Yofk, hat appeared with long statement of faels and circumstances, in defence of himself. He mates that he left New York on the first ofOctoheT for the General Conven tion, up to that time not having heard breath of rumor against him, whrro he waa met in a cold, repulsive manner. Six or seven days af ter llio Convcnsion liad assembled, Bit-Imp Meade suggested to him privately that lie should leave it much expostiiUti.ni and de mands for reason followed. No reasons were given, and Onderdonk refused to go.

At both Houses of Congress were more than ordinarily dull, end ,he gossipping world having for the moment suspended functions, that are seldom out of requisition, I joined a party yester day, on a visit to tna spot, which, of all others, should be the most sacred to the American, and where every lover of his country owes a pilgri mage of patriotism and duty, Mount Vernon, the burial plate of Washington. We took the steam boat at Washington, and in forty minutes after were landed at Alexandria, one of the oldest ci ties in the Union. Time has made sad havoc with all its ancient glory, the grass may be seen growing in thestreets, and a commerce, once the most flourishing and large, has disappeared in the new channels of trade, or become mingled with more enlarged and active enterprise. After a rough drive of two hours and a half, over one of the worst roads in all Virginia, w...

Tho following account is fur nished by a writer in tho N. Y. Sun.

A case containing the food, is set in a vessel of boiling water and made to boil. In this state, while the team excludes all the air, the operator instantly closes the orifice by soldering on a small tin but ton provided for the purpose.
