AMERICA. NEW YORK, MAY 30. MORNING. The Senate have unanimously struck out the section of the constitutional amendment proposed by the Recon- struction Committee, disfranchising rebels until 1870 The House of Repiesen a ivt s has passed by 96 to 32 votes the bill to amend and continue in force the Freed- men's Bureau. The 11011-e has also passed two bills reducing the rates for the collection of the internal revenue. In consequence of a report that the trial of Mr Davis would be postponed until November, his counsel have declared their determination in case of such postpone- ment, to insist on his release on bail, which they have agreed to furnish to the extent of ten million dollars. Great lawlessness exists in the interior of Texas, A riot has occurred at Q iineey, Florida, originating in an attempt on the part of some negroes to rescue a prisoner. Several persons were killed and wounded. Thirteen parishes of Louisiana have been inundated by floods from the crevasses of the Mississipi river. The State Department is said to have received informa- tion that the French Government will grant exem ption. from the military conscription to French-born naturalised American citizens. It is reported that the Fenians in Cineinnatti are or- ganising a raid on Canada, and that 400 Fenians carrying colours, and commanded b} officers carrying side-arms, passed through Clevt-land yesterday, poing eastward. Numerous circles throughout the country have recog- nised the authority of Stephens, who is said to be in the daily receipt of large sums of money. Fenian circles are being organised in Nashville. •— A RADICAL'S OPINION ABOUT THE 'COMMON PEOPLE. —The heart of the ptebs in this country is not to be reached but in gushes of moral wisdom. Give the poor man sensation let him sup. fuil of horrors; initiate him in all the mysteries of crime; but always be it remem- bered that one condition is essential ;o the success of the dreadful tale-that it shall somewhat ostentatiously ally to mortality. A good Catholic makes the 6ign of the cross when he fears that he has got into the company of evil spirits. The honest beer-swiiiinp Briton of the iower order love* to make moral reflections when he finds himself in doubtful company. He is thus about a hundred years behind the more educated Briton.—Macmillan's Magazine. SERIOUS EXPLOSIONTlAT WOOLWICH ARSENAL,—On Saturday afternoon an explosion, which was attended with much destruction of property, but fortunately, as the men had just left work, without injury to any individual, took place at the Laboratory Department of the Royal Arsenal. It appears that, shortly before the occurrence, a few pounds of the powerful mix- ture known as detonating powder had been placed in a building used as a magazine, when the mixtura exploded with a loud report, completely destroying the building, and blowing out the windows, and otherwise injuring the adjoining workshops. A MILITARY EXECUTION.—A Tuscan soldier has just been executed at Turin for having attempted to murder his superior officer. At four in the morning detachments of infantry, cavalry, fcersaglieri, carbi- neers, and artillery were drawn up on the square before the citadel. The prisoner was then brought out and his sentence read to him. He expressed his regret, in a voice which betrayed great emotion, that he could not embrace his mother, and said that he had beeii driven to the crime for which he was about to suffer by the persecutions to which he had been subjected. He also recommended the officers not to place too much confidence in the reports made to them, but before inflicting punishments to verify the facts. He then raised a cheer for the Piedmontese officers, and, finally, as a favour, asked to be permitted to give the command to fire. He then uttered a short prayer, turned his back to the firing party, gave the signal, and the next moment was a corpse. IMPORTANT QUESTION AFFECTING BEERSCIXEKS.—At the Leeds Police-couu she other day, Thomas Settle, of the Angel Inn, Atue -street, was charged with selling drink during prohibited hours Mr Ferns (who appeared for the defendant) said he would not attempt to deny the charge, but would show that, his client had a perfect (rghtto sell bper—if not consumed on the premises—at any hour he liked. By a recent statute, a man having an ordinary license for selling beer could, by the addi- tional payment of one guinea per rear, have a wholesome license, under the provision of which he was at perfect liberty to sell beer to his out door customers at all hours of the night. This license Mr Settle was armed wi:h, and, therefore, lie was not in the lea-t caipaole—Mr Cliff thought the hours would be re^ulaicd by the general Beer Act.—Mr Ferns: No, your worships, the general Beer Act does not Ciiff, Then, according to your interpretation of the statute, there is nothing to prevent, a man with one of these licenses keeping his. house open all night Jona:, and as much beer 8:5 anyone will fetch.— Mr Ferns: lie may, if he likes, sell from a gill to a 56 gallon barrel, and there would be no offence againsr the statute,—The Bench said the point raised by \lr Ferns was a most important one. and they would talje a week's consideration before giving judgment. —Leeds Express. CLEARING OUT A NEST OF PIRATE'.—-The following news from Cochin-China appears in the Mnnitcur.:—i The mail brings the details of an expedition which has been undertaken against a nest of pirates in the Plain of Bamboos. This is a district of vast extent, and almost entirely consists of impracticable marshes, and has always been considered impervious to troops. From time im- memorial this region has served as the IWlmt. of bandits at present, commanded by a man named Tien-bo, and supposed to number some five or six hundred men, who occupied a village called Tap-Muoy, situated on a sandy islet, and strongly defended with palisaded redoubts. On the 12th of April three columns, composed of marines, sailors, native so diers, and Annamite militia, forming a total of about 40a men, were embarked on some gunboats, and the next day landed and commenced operations, preparations for which had been fjr some time made by the governor of the colony. A number of small boats had been provided by which the soldiers were enabled to traverse the ditches, the only practicable method of pene- trating this region, all of which had been fortified by Tien-ho. However, Commander Derome, in charge of the expedition, determined to proceed vigorously, and dispatched one column, under the command of Captain Roube, in one direction, who carried a strong position and he himself attacked a bastioned fort commanded by Tien-ho iu person, and defended by about 300 men. After an obstinate strup-ue the fort was carried bv escalade, and the enemy tied in all directions. The next day the three columns reunited at the stronghold of Tap- muoy, which, however, they found deserted, and which thev burnt. This expedition, which does great honour to the troops engaged, has achieved complete success and secured the tranquility of the colony.' CHEESE MADE FROM POTATOES.-Cheese, it is said, of an extremely fine quality, is manufactured from potatoes in the Thurningia and part of Saxony in the following manner :-#After having collected a quan- tity of potatoes of a good quality, giving a preference to the large white kinds, they are boiled In a cauldror, and after becoming cool, they are peeled and reduced to a pulp either by means of a grater or a mortar. To five pounds of this pulp, which ought to be as equal as possible, is added a pound of sour milk, and the necessary quantity of salt. The whole is kneaded together, and the mixture covered up, and allowed to remain for three or four days according to the sea- son. At the end of this time it is kneaded again, and the cheeses placed in little basket where the super- fluous moisture is allowed to escape. They are then, allowed to dry in the shade, and placed in layers in large pots or vessels, where they must remain for fifteen days. The older these cheeses are the more their quality improves. Two kinds of them are made. The first, which is the most common, is made ac- cording to the proportions above indicated; the second, with four parts of potatoes and four parts of cow or ewe milk. These cheeses have this advantage over every other kind, that they do not engender worms, Z, and keep fresh for a great number of years, provided they are placed in a dry situation and in well-closed vessels.

TIIE LILY OF THE YALLEY. Fair flower, that lapt in lowly glade Dost hide beneath the greenwood shade, Than whom the vernal '?ale None fairer wakes on bank or spray, Our England's lily of the May, A Our lily of the vale. Art thou that lily of the field,' Which, when the Sa vionr sought to shield The heart from blank despair, He showed to our mistrustful kind, An emblem to the thoughtful mind Of God's paternal care ? But not the less, sweet springtide's flower, Dost thou display the Maker's power, His skill and handiwork, Our western valleys' humbler child Where in green nook of woodland wild, Thy modest blossoms lurk. What though nor care nor art be thine, The loom to ply, the thread to twine Yet, born to bloom and fade, The: too, a lovelier robe array?, Than e'er in Israel's brightest days Her wealthiest king arrayed. Of thy twin leaves th' embowered screen Which wraps thco in thy shroud of green Thy Eden-breathing smell; Thy arched and purple-vested starn, Whence pendant many a pearly gem, D:splays a milk-white bell; Instinct with life thy fibrous root, Which sends from earth the ascending sboof, As rising from the dead, And fill3 thy veins with verdant juice, Charged thy fair blossoms to produce, And berries scarlet red The triple cell, the two-fold seed, A ceaseless treasure-house decreed, Whence aye thy race may grow, As from creation they have grown, While spring shall weave her flowery crcwn, Or vernal breezes blow Who forms thee thus with unseen hand, Who at creation gave command, AT d willed thee thus to be, And keeps thee still in being through Age after age revolving, who But the Great God is He ?

On Monday, a farmer named Francois Dion let, his residence for the purpose of going a distance of about a dozen acres into the bush, in order to cut some wood. wlonday and Tuesday passed, and there was no sign of his return and one of his relative;, accompanied by a friend, started to search for him. They had not. far to go, for after pro- ceeding a short distance into the wood, they found his headless body, lying in a swamp. A party of the neigh- Y, bours collected, and searched everywhere for the head, bat in vain. From the lacerated condition of the adjoin- ing parts, and from the fact that a portion of the left side had been torn away, it was surmised that the unfortunate man had fallen a victim to lynxes, which abound in the neighbourhood, and some traces of which were found close at hand. The post mortem examination disclosed nothing to alter the surmise. There were no traces of a struggle on the ground. The clothing and pockets of the deceased had not been meddled with. He was a very weak man, and must apparently have fallen an easy prey. An open verdict was rendered. Deceased was about sixty years of age,- Quebec Chronicle,

THE PEMBROKE AND TENBY RAILWAY BILL. In addition to our concise statement last week, that the Pembroke and Tenby Railway Bill bad passed, we Ire now enabled to give a few further particulars. Mr Rodwell associated with Mr Owen, of the Sou h Wales Circuit, appeared for the promoters Mr Round for the preat Western Railway. The application was as fol- lowsThe Bill to change the name of the company to that of the Pembroke, Tenby, and Carmarthen, and to liable them to make the following railways ;-1 (54 chains) wholly in the parish of St. Mary, Pembroke, from their existing line near its commencement to near IIobbs Point, on the scuth shore of Milford Haven '2 (20 chains), in connection with their existing line at the Pembroke Station 3 (14 miles 66 chains in length), from their authorised extension line in the parish of Siangan to a junction with the Carmarthen and Cardigan, **ear Carmarthen to make wharfs at the termination of ^o. 1, and to dredge the adjoining part of the haven to raise further sums of £ 20,000 by ordinary or pre- ference shares, and £66,600 by loan to enter into Arrangements with the Carmarthen and Cardigan, the Manchester and Milford, the Mid Wales, the Cambrian, the Central Wales, and the Llanelly respecting the forking and traffic of the railways of the companies; to 'ease their railway to David Davies and Ezra Roberts, for 21 years; and to lease their railway for any term to ^e Cambrian, the Manchester and Milford, and the llanelly, or either of them.' The learned Council, in opening the case, stated that the Company was bona fide in every sense and that the Capital was prepared for constructing the line Witk.1 Regard to their financial position, he remarked that they had nothing to do with Lloyd's Bonds; they did not know so much as the colour of them. The projected bne was supported by all the landed and commercial 101erest in the district through which it proposed to Pass, and had, in fact, no opponent whatever except the threat Western Company, who were neither willing to grant running powers, or to allow the independent line to be constructed. ilencp this application to Parliament Amongst the witnesses called were Lord Dynevor, who as a large landed proprietor in the County of Car- marthen, was most decidedly of opinion that the narrow Ruage system, by which it was proposed to connect Pembrokeshire with Carmarthenshire and the district ^bove, would be of the utmost possible advantage. Sir ■ttugb Owen also warmly supported the Bill, and com- plained of the want of accommodation on the part of the ^reat Western Company. He was questioned very closely on this point, and spoke as to their carriages being out of order, inferior, and dirty. He also spoke as to the great delay in the running of the trains, which 5^ere not timed convenient as far as he was concerned. He set forth the beneficial consequences which would result from connecting the South of Pembrokeshire with the large manufacturing districts of the North of Eng. and, which could be accomplished on the completion of the lines now in progress. Mr William Morris, M.P., Was also examined, and spoke in favour of the Bill. The ellidence of Mr James Bagnall and Mr J. N. Buddy was bot taken, Counsel being satisfied with his case as it stood. -the Committee having passed the preamble, Mr Rodwell Applied for costs. The Co mrnittee had, on the previous granted costs in a case where the promoters had been met by vexatious and frivolous opposition be therefore Considered that when a small company like the Pembroke Tenby had been met by so much vexatious opposi- lori, involving expense, inconvenience, and delay, by a Powerful company like the Great Western, the Com- r,aittee, having passed the preamble, ought to give costs. Jjjr Saunders, however, was examined on this point for /\e Great Western, and said that he had had interviews ith Mr Davies, one of the contractors, and had been in correspondenoe with the Chairman of the line, and the Contractors, and on every occasion had expressed the ttaost willingness to make terms without going to atliament; that there was no difficulty in laying down third rail over the Great Western, and they would adertake to lay one. It appeared, however that they ^°Uld not undertake to complete it under five years, and, Moreover, we understand that they refused to grant ?roper running powers. Their offers, therefore, could °t be entertained by the Pembroke and Tenby Com- PaI>y. Costs were refused. 0w regard to this question of costs, a railway journal j erves: s^ort' but amueing episode followed the j^claration by the Committee that the preamble of the and Tenby had been proved. Costs were iart for against the Great Western. That company 'tent aPPeared in opposilion to the scheme, and had con- <. itse^ w'th a few observations from Counsel to the ect that the promoters might take their Bill if they Is ith° hut that the Great Western was still, facii* evcr been, willing to concede every reasonable thp tC> ^etr,hroke and Tenby, even to permitting I e company to lay down narrow guage rails from Whit- • In consequence of this concession e&sLt1,LLeirK?'8SIon'in fact- t0 obtain their Bill at the *bout frivnlniiB r*te~im outcry was immediately raised IZi r,,lnfcfexatl?us; and wan(on opposition, the hole sound and fury of which was quietlv extinguished J? the production of the Secretary of the Great Western UonsWthnf?'
