TIio news thai (ho eminent Professor
Agasslz was seized with paralysis was
received last week with the deepest re
gret, and the tidings of his death, which
occurred on Sunday evening last, will
awaken tho most profound sorrow
throughout tho country and tho world.
As one ot tho foremost men of science
of this, or any age, though a Swiss by
birth, and nn American by adoption
nnd citizenship, 1m was truly n cosmo
polltnn In feeling, In character, and in
reputation, and his loss Is a, calamity
to the world at large. Being one of
the most Indefatigable of workers, ae
complltliiiig tho task of many ordinary
men within a given space of time, he
lias doubtless suffered from over-cxer-tlou.
IIo was .attacked with paralysis
early last week, and without any favor
able change ho remained under the
power of disease until Sunday evening,
when he expired.
Louis John Rudolph Agasslz was of
French descent, his family having been
one of those driven abroad by tho edict
.of Nantes against the Huguenots. Ho
was the son of six generations of clergy
men. Ills father was pastor of the
Protestant parish Of St. Iralcr, In the
ancient Bishopric of Bosel. Ills mother
wa3 the daughter of a phjisiilan, in tho
Canton de Yaud. Louis was born May
28, 1807, in the parish of Mottler,
Switzerland. He received an academi
cal education In tho Canton' ot Berne.
In 182-1 he went to Zurich, as a medical
student, thence to Heidelberg Univer
sity, and continued his medical studies,
and studied zoology under Ltuekart
nnd botany under Blschoff. In 1827
ho entered the University of Munich,
lie early became distinguished In tho
department of Natural Science, aud was
niado In 1832 professor' of Natural
History In the College of Neufcha'tel.
Having visited tho United States in
1810 and excited groat Interest by his
lectures, he was Invited by Professor
Bache, of the Coast survey; to use Its
facilities for the prosecution of his
researches, an offer which induced him
to take up his residence in the United
States. In 1848 he became, a professor
In tho newly founded scientific school
at Cambridge, Mass., which he has
iuco made the eentro ot operations
which have extended to every part of
the United States and, almost circum
scribed the American Continent. Ex.
Two of tho Bendor family of murder
ers wero arrested last week at Wines
vllle, Spartanburg, county, S. C. Every
one will remember the great excitement
produced not long slneo by tho discov
ery of the wholesale murders committed
by tho Bender family, In Kansas, and
the .exhuming of the bodies of their
victims found burled on the premises
around their dwellings, and that1 the
Bender family all. made good their
escape'before their crimes were detected.

officer with a, posse came over1 from
Union county and arrested an old man

wife as the old lady Benderi Stebs

moved West, or when, thoy commenced
the life of robbers and murderers. The
old man and his 'wife moved back to
the county a short time "since, and set

formerly lived, without any suspicion
of being remembered by the name of
Webb by some of the old citizens who
knew them many years ago.
