Lecislati rl. In consequence of a

unable to furnish our readers with any

It is believed that this bill as amended

We learn that a man by the name of j
Tomlinson was found frozen to death on
the morning of the 2d inst., a few miles
above Troy. It is supposed that he fell
from his horse in a state of intoxication.
Another sad warning to the drunkard.
VincisiA.-The-qoinmilteeto whom the
subject was referred, have reported a bill!
dividing the. state into Congressional
Districts. The democrats being in the
ascendant in both branches of the Legis
lature, secures the passage of the bill.
A portion of the whig press object to
some of the features of the bill, allcdging
that the dristrict composed of Henrico,
City of Richmond, Chesterfield, Powhat

writing from New York, aAcr a visit to

of the papers, to make a penny, strive to

the Democratic members of the Kentucky
Legislature, accompanied by a long ad

in which the claims of Richard M.
Johssox to the Presidency, are set forth
nd urged upon the people with a great
deal of zeal and apparent candour. '
It will not be denied but Col. Johnson
deserves well of his country, it is equal

quota of that country's honours.
- It is staled in some of our ex

nominated John II." White of Lan

(late Governor.) Jas. Clark, Abner
Greenleaf, and Israel Hunt, jr., for
Congress, in opposition to the regular
Massachusetts Election. By last
Monday's mail we learn that the joint
committee on the return of the votes for
Governor, &.C., made the following re
port! TOR GOVERNOR.
Votes given, 117,892

The vacancies are thus far filled with
13 Democrats and 1 Whig. This gives
(he Democrats a clear majority on joint
ballot and of course secures tho election
of Marus Morton as Governor.
Judging from the results of thcballot

any morning, hae told him' Mr. Ty

Two days after the death of Gei eral
Harrison, while on hU circuit, he
heard of that event, and accompany

would sign a bill to establish a Na
tional bank. But at no time before
or after ihi short interval could he
have been woke at six o'clock in the
morniriir and not been able to tell
that Mr. Tyler would never sinn such
a bill. I lis first interview with Mr.
Tyler after the death of General Har
rison dispelled his hope in regard to
the course he might be willing to
There was purpose in what . Mr.
Wise said, as I have above related.
It was to break the force of a blow
with which he has been for some time
threatened. Mr. Marshall is, it is un
derstood I believe known in pos
session of a letter wri:ten by Mr.
Wise to Gen. l-eslie Combs, in which
he inforns General C. thai he need
have no apprehension of Mr. Tyler;
that he will be thoroughly Whig, and
will sign a bill to establish a National
Bank. Mr. Wise doubtless wishes to
break the force of this letter, if such
a one really existed, of which I have
no proof nor no doubt.
Now, if it be a fact thai Mr. Wise,
who, for the last year, has been scoff
ing bit:erly at tho Whigs for ever
having allowed themselves to think
for one monwnt that John Tyler
would believe all the acts And profes
sions of the whole of his past life by
