From Tuscaloosa ( Ala.) we learh that the Hon.
Marmaduke Williams has soon followed to the pre
cincts of the tomb the partner of his long life, (eigh
l ,?r8') whose decease we lately announced. This
worthy gentleman was a Representative in Congress
'Vjifty vears ago from the State of North Caro-
lna ot which he was a native. '
fro LoDI8' Nov. 9. A speech is shortly expected
'. Mr- Benton, relative to his course in the last
session of Congress, as well as his present position,

" CASE OF MRS. SIMPSON.
We learn from the Fayetteville Carolinian that at
the, late Term of Cumberland Superior Court, Mrs.
Ann K. Simpson, tried for the murder or her nos
band, was acquitted. The Carolinian says:
" On Thursday (thanksgiving day) the case or the
State against Mrs. Ann Simpson, for the murder
(by poison) of her husband, A. oimpn, w
taken up. She was arraigned on Monday afternoon,
and pleaded not guilty. The bill 01 inaicimeni
in this case occupied five PSe" " '""'"i'- "
Robu Strange, Warren Winslow and Duncan K.
McRae, Esqs., conducted the defence ; and Mr. So
licitor Ashe and Hon. James C. Dobbin for the State.
At the time of putting our paper to press, the ex
animation of witnesses was not closed. The exam i
; r n,. Mallett and Robinson, and Rev. Sim
eon Colton, seemed to prove very clearly the exis-ten-e
of poison in the stomach of the deceased ; and
their opinions, based upon their examinations of the
-in(a of the stomach, and the symptoms of illness
r wKich the deceased died, were, that he came to
his death by white arsenic taken into the stomach
This bavin? been established, other witnesses testi
tied, that a serious disagreement happened between'
Mr. and Mrs. Simpson, but a short time previous to
his death. That she read to a young woman, whom
she employed in the house to sew, a letter from Mr.
SimDson, saying that he once believed she loved him,
but he now knew she loved another better. That for
the sake of their friends he would continue to live
with her. but she must make him a separate bed.
It was further testified that she went to an old for
tune teller, who told her a good deal of nonsense ;
but among other things and at different times, that
her husband would not live lonsr, and that she would
marry the one she loved ; that she turned the cups,
and saw his coffin, and predicted his early death. It
was further testified that Mrs. Simpson's amours
with another man was the cause of disagreement be
tween her and her husband.
It was testified that she bought arsenic a short time
before his death, and asked a gentleman what effect
it had on animals and men.
Then the testimony of two boarders in the house,
detailing her conduct at the table on tbe day before
Mr. S's death, throw dark and terrible suspicions
upon the motives and designs of the prisoner. Her
conversations but a few minutes after the death of
the deceased, in regard to what the fortune-teller told
her, and of her future course, all help to darken the
picture and point to her as the only person who, in
all reasonable probability, would have administered
the drug ; and yet, there is no positive testimony, to
satisfy a man beyond all shadow of doubt, that it was
her that did U.
The counsel for the defence ably and ingeniously
endeavored to convince the jury that it was quite pos
sible, even if not probable, that the roan did not die
of arsenic; that the physicians may hare been mis
taken ; or that he may have taken his own life; or
that beinz in a feeble state of health, it was not
strange that he died. The State insisted that by a
chain of circumstances, each link in itself not to be
relied upon, but that the whole taken together, form
ed a chain of events which must convince any roan
of the guilt of tbe prisoner at the bar.
The jury consisted of Chas. S. Johnson, Murdoch
McKinnon, Jas. VV. McCallister, Danl. Clark, Jno.
A. Williams, John T. Wright, Danl. Cameron, J. B.
Wright, A. McGregor, John Thames, Wm. Butler,
and Jas. Price.
Thev retired for an hour or two, and returned a
verdict of Not Guilty."
John W. McAllister was also tried for the murder
of Daniel Cutts, and acquitted.
We had the pleasure on Thursday and Friday of
last' week of being present at the examination of the
pupils of the Warrenton Female Seminary, under the
supervision of the Hon. Daniel Turner. The ex
amination of the different classes by their respective
teachers, evinced, not only a thorough knowledge of
their profession on the part of the teachers, but that
most necessarry qualification, the art of imparting
knowledge to the young- minds placed under their
charge. The concert on thnreday evening was large
ly attended, and the ease and faculty in periorming
very difficult pieces by tbe young ladies, is proof of
the high qualifications of their teacher, Mr. John F.
Brandt. We will not extend this nonce or me ex-
ercises, as a friend has nandea us a more aetauea
notice of the examination which will be found in an

South Caeolina. The Legislature of this State
will meet in a short time, and its course will be
watched with much anxiety and interest; forjudging
from tbe tone of the Press in that State, her people
are ripe lor aisunion, and resolved to try the expert
ment af secession. Some of the papers are asking
the question : " Shall our delegation return to Con
gress I " U pon the action of her Legislature, at its
approaching session, depends her fate; and if she
shall secede, will the President, like Gen. Jackson
order a force to compel her to submission ? We do
not see with what consistency he could do so if he
refuses to enforce the Fugitive Slave law at the North
Michigan. The city of Detroit at the late election
cast a majority of 138 votes against the adoption of

In Cumberland County, on the 20th ultimo, John
McNeill Esq., in the 77th year of his age. The deceas
ed' was a man of strict integrity and honesty, and lor ma

On the 6th inst., at his residence in Sampson county,
after a long and painful illness, which he bore with chris
tian fortitude and resignation, Edward C. Gavin, Esq.,
aged 6R years.
Mr. pavin was one of the best and most highly respec
e 1 citizen of Sampson County. Many years previous to
his decease, he embraced the religion of our Lord Jesus
Christ, and proved himself a most worthy and acceptable
member of the Baptist Church until his death. About
the year 1822 or 23 he entered public liie, and from
that time, with few intermissions, he continued to be a
worthy Member of the Senate or House of Commons of
North Carolina. He also labored zealously for tbe in
terests of the Church of which he was a shining and
exemplary member the Missionary Baptist. But he is
gone his body is consigned to the narrow limits of the
cold snd'silent tomb, and his immortal spirit has taken
its flight to the God who gave it there to reap the re
ward of its labors there to bask in the sunshine of mid
day glory. He has left a wife and children, and a large
circle of friends and connexions to lament their irre
parable loss. But they mourn not as those without hope
for they are cheered by the sweet consciousness that
their departed friend and relative died in the triumphs
of faith and the full nope ot a blessed immortality. May
God be a husband to the widow, and father to the fath
erless. The deceased was long and intimately known to the
humble writer of this imperfect sketch who can bear tes
timony to his sterling worth and unspotted integrity
plain and unaffected manners and unostentatious piety
An affectionate husband, and a doting parent, his death
was no doubt, in some degree accelerated by domestic
afflictions. His character as a public man, and the con
ridence reposed in him by his fellow-citizens, can be bet
ter understood from the fact already stated, that he rep
resented Sampson county in the Senate and House of
Commons of North Carolina, with the exception of a few
years, ever since the year 1822 or '23.
As this is tbe last tribute I can psy to my departed
friend. I wish to God that it were in my power to make
it worthy of his character, and as enduring as his virtues.
But it needs not this. The sincere regrets of this com
munity are bis best elogium, and bis most fitting mon
ument is that engraven on the hearts of his friends.
Tbe old Ten Mile Church, in which he had bis mem
bership, will long continue to mourn his loss, and in af
ter days men will point to tbe seat which he occupied
in his life-time, as a spot hallowed by tbe reccollcctions
of a good man.
