Tbe death of thia accomplished scbolar,

[ nanus: in aoiue public form. Willi your per-
I mission, therefore, 1 will make the Ditpatch

1 waa a resident of Columbia in tbe year*
ltWtt, *?, -wand 'ft, and saw 001. I'rehton al
inoat deity, lie being a relative of tbe gentle
man with whom 1 waa living, ("if Seeretario"
of later fame,) and with wbom he was on
term* of ibe most friendly intercourse. This
•cave me an opportunity to become acquainted
with bim in tbe exercise of those remarkable
colloquial power* with which be was so
highly Kitted. Ilia familiarity with classical
literature wa< equally remarkable, and he
could nt all times command a fund of nine
trati.in drawn from such sources. This waa
carried most happily into bis public efforts at
tbe bar, and before other tribunals. He bad
read tbe Bible with a reverence befitting its
divine autbortty and its sublime teachings,
and with the highest appreciation of it* pure
and elevated diction and imagery. Hia quo
tations from it, therefore, were not of that
catch-word sort too common with our public
speaker*, bnt were always introduced with
due regard to propriety aud good ta*te.
Reference bas often been made to his mas
terly defence of Judge James, wbo was im
peached for drunkenness, before the Senate of
South Carolina, in IRK. It was litis speech
that first attracted public attention to bim aa
an orator. Just at tbat time South Carolina
furnished acoostelHiion of brilliant men.—.
Calhoun, Wayne, McOuttPJ* Harper, Legale
and Preston ranked as star* of the first mag
nitude, but perhaps It is not invidious to say
tb«.t Preston excelled them all in that charm
of iliuslied oratory which can .be felt, but
which, like that of his illustrious ancestor,
Patrick Henry, well nigb balnea all attempts
to describe it. 1 was one of the delighted and
deeply interested listeners to Col. Preston's
celebrated defence of Judge James, before al
luded to. The sceue lias often been described
before, perhapa nowhere better than in
O'NeaP* -Bench and liar of Sontb Carolina."
I only desire to add ray tribute of admiration
to the splendid forensic effort of that occa
sion, especially as it is impressed on my mem
ory by Preston's defence of bis old friend.—
He entered upon tbat defence with all the ar
dor of bis nature. Tbe tribunal waa a most
august one. The accused was a Revolutionary
patriot, who had served bis country well,and
possessing a character unsullied except by in
dulgence in a habit which, alas, has too often
overtaken and overwhelmed other worthy
men. If. as wits probably true, lie had com
mitted grave errors as Chaucellor, it was ac
knowledged by all but a lew, whom he had
made bitter enemies by his judicial decisions,
that tbey were errors of the head, and not of
the beart.
Col. Preston knew how to touch tbe chords
of popular leeltng with a master's skill, and
his allusion to the Judges Revolutionary
service* waa in his happiest style. He drew a
picture of the men and scenes of the .{.evolu
tion—each man a hero, and each scene one ol
thrilling interest. Just here lie introduced a
Scripture quotation with fine effect. Refer
ring to the language of those who were sent
by Moses to spy out tbe land of Cauaa.ii aud
make report of the country and its inhabi
tants ; and after a glowing comment upon tbe
virtues aud valor of tbe great actors iv tbe
War of the Revolution, be exclaimed—•• In
iliose days, Mr. President, tkere were giants in
the land."
The peroration of this masterly speech wa*
in tbe highest style of oratorical excellence.—
It was followed by the most profound silence,
which was at length broken by R. Ham well
Smith, (now Rliett.) oueof those appointed to
conduct the prosecution. He opened bis re
ply to Preston by saying, with the deepest
emotion, "Mr. President, I rise abashed and
dazzled by the Maaß of eloquence that has
pßseeS—d me. Were Lto consult my private
feelings at this moment, I would stay this
prosecution ; but, sir, I have a public duty to
perform, and tbe justice ol the country must
be served. '* The appeals o;' Piestou, eloquent
and earnest as they were, could Hot save the
poor old Judge; but bis speech on that occa
sion gave linn a reputatiou which soon became
national, and which, waa well -ustuined dur
ing his public life. P. J.

House is to be converted into a temporary pa
lace lor the Prince of Wales. New funiculi

beds, bedding, dining tables, sideboard, pianos
and tbe full accessories of a weli-turnished
house, are to take the place of desks aud oifUe
stools. One wing is 10 be set apart lor Hi*
Koyal Highness, arui another lor the Hukeol
Newcastle, who,as colonial secretary, will ac
company him.
Ai Quebec they also talk of chartering 40 cr
.id river and lake steamers, aud going down
tbe St. Lawrence en masse to meet the Prince.
The Parliament will assemble whe.i becomes,
p*"esent addresses, aud escort him lo Montreal,
where the great Victoria bridge is to be inau
gurated by him.
At Mout real they have received ..-Jii.ttOO from

assist in the inauguration of a statue to bis
royal mother, and tbey have also laid the
foundation stone of a flue palace of industry,
in which tbe Upper Canada agricultural ex
hibition will be held this tall, aud to which
tbe Prince will be invited.
A Sportive Monster.—The new directors
of the <*reat Eastern have made the Portland
people the victims of "asell," almost as gigan
tic as the great ship herself. Tbe last Board
positively announced that when the ship
came to ihis country she would come to Port
land, and the Portlanden accordingly ex
pended over SltiU.OOli in building a pier and
making other preparations for her advent. A
new dynasty having ascended thetliroue, her
destination has wisely, perhaps, but unfairly,
been changed loNow lork, and Portland is
left to pocket tbe loss and st-jmach the affront
a. best she can. It must be confessed that, so
tar, the big ship has been a most deceitful and
inhuman monster. She refused to be launch
ed lor nearly three montha; killed her pro
jector with anxiety and annoyance; blew up
her passengers tbe minute shegot any of them
ou board; upset her captain out of her gig
and drowned him; got the city of Portland
to make a pier for ber, and then refused to
come to It; aud finally, as if in a tit of fero
cious iniitb, addressed heiself to the New
York Common Council for information as to
whether she could pass tbe bar atbigb water.
.'boh the West Indies.—The schooner
Martha Skinner, Capt. Amidou, arrived at
Noiwicu.Couu., from tbo island of Sombrero,
which place she left on the Kith int., brings
news from the British West India islands. At
and St. Martin's very large quanti
ties ot salt had been collected. Ail the islands
had suffered severely from drought. At St.
Martin's water was so scarce that tbey had to
place a police force over tbe fountains. Wines
and breadstuff* were also very scarce. At St.
Bart's mining operations had been quite suc
cessful ; lead ore, equal to Galena, coal of
superior quality, as well as copper, having
been discovered, (told aud iron had alao been
found. A very large siilphurdeposit had b--eu
discovered at Saba, one ot the Dutch West In

RICHMOND, VA., TUESDAY JUNE S, 1860.
A Has at ata Brae Litra.—A suit has been
commenced in tbe French courts, tbe Inci
dent* developed in wbieh will set tbe brain*
of tbe dramatists in a wbirl, and give work
to tbeir pons. Tbe story run* tbns -.
"Nearly thirty years ago, a widow lady,of
a noble and powerful Huguenot family real,
ding tn the South of France, placed her child
with a gardener* wife, who was to act as Its
foster-mother and name. One day, as the
young heir was sporting before tbe door, ard
the gardener's child waa lying on a bed in tbe
cottage, tbe nurse beard tbe wheel* of a car
riage, and immediately suspected tbat the
mother of her yottngcharge was coming to see
hereon. In her flurry she snatched np the
beir, but slipping, let bim fall upon a heap of
stones.breaking hia rightarmand collar-bone.
In her terror ahe rnsbed to ber husband, who
ad v ised her to stow away tbe screaming vie tim
under the bed-cloihes.and taking his garment
he placed them on his own child, and boldly
stood at the door to await tbe lady'a coming.
Contrary to the usual casual glance given by
ber on ber previous visits, tbe lady mother
wa* so struck nt the change of her darling, to
the lean, brown, hungry-looking babe which
she beheld in the place of her own plump baby,
that, vexed and exasperated beyond measure,
she seized the child in ber arm* aud bade tbe
postillion drive away. The gardener and hie
w.fe were terribly frightened, bnt decided to
go the next day to the chateau and make an ex
planation. To their further consternation
tbey ton nd tbe next morning that the lady was
gone and had taken away tbe child. Years
sped on and tbe family did not return, while
tbe ignorant cottager*, influenced by terror,
never dared to stir In tbe matter, until tbe
gardener's wife, on ber death-bed, recently
made a full confession. In the meantime, the
cottager's child has passed his life as a mem
ber of one of tbe noblest families of France,
hi— been attached to au embassy, and now
holds a desirable official position, while tbe
real heir has spent his youth in discipline and
privation as a soldier in Algeria. The latter
now brings suit to recover bis property and
Berryer, probably the most famous lawyer
in France, lias been engaged for the defence.
Another Tragedy im Mississippi—The
Vis-ksburg Whig, of Wednesday morning, re
cites as follows another horrible tragedy in
Miasissippi, which resulted in the death of
two well known citizens:
A rencounter occurred at "Warrenton on
Monday night, between Drs. Selser and Bell
and Cut. Wm. DeGritlin, gentlemen of high
standing and well known in this community,
which resulted in the death of Dr. Selser und
Col. DeGrifßn. We have heard a number of
conflicting reports regarding theorigiti of this
sad affair, and have, therefore, endeavored to
gain authentic information. It seems that Dr.
Bell had been visiting Dr. Sel-ser's house quite
olien ot late, and that his visits became very
disagreeable to Dr. S.s sister. She requested
him to inform Dr. Bell that his visits were not
agreeable, and lor him to discontinue, them,
wnictt Dr. Selser did by note. Dr. Bell, in re
ply, sent a very insulting vote lo him by Dr.
Pettit, and did not discontinue his visits. Dr.
Selser did not meet him again, however, until
Monday night, when they met near the
show-boat Banjo, where Dr. Selser took
occasion to demand an explanation for the
insulting message sent bim by Dr. Bell.—
He asked Dr. B, "What did you mean by the
message you sent me !" Dr. Bell then inquired,
"What message '" to which Dr. Selser replied,
"The message you sent me by Dr. Pettit." Itn
m..diately after. Dr. Bell drew a knife aud in
flicted iwo wounds on Dr. Selser—one in the
wrist and the other iv the neck—severing sev
eral of the arteries, from which he immedi
ately died. Col. DetJritfin stepped up and
caught Bell by the shoulder for the purpose of
separating them, it ia supposed, when Bell
stabbed him three times—twice in the arm ami
once in the right breast- the latter of which
entered the lung. Col. DeGrifliti lingered un
til about;( o'clock, yesterday afternoon, when
he expired. Dr. Bell was arrested hy lhe citi
zens of Warrenton and held in custody until
yesterday, when the sheriff went down aud
brought him up to this city, where he was
lodged in jail.
Painfil AiiiDKNT.—At Kings tree, S. C, re
nß*a_jr,while two jib; s___s werecou»ultiugin
a case, they decided to use aqua aiutnonia, aud
one ot* them, Dr. Wallace, proceeded to open a
bottle. The Star say-:
The vial had not been used in two years,
and when called to be opened the stopper was
so tight that Dr. Wallace applied a small vice
which wrenched off tbe head of tbe stopple. It
was then determined that the medicine must
be had, so Dr. Wallace commented to file off"
the neck, intending to take thepropercaution,
which ac had oftentimes giveu not only to
those in his office, but to his family both wnite
and black, should they be sent into his office
during his absence. Hut unfortunately the file
entered before he was aware, the gas escaped,
causing R violent explosion, completely suffo
cating and burning him in a most horrid man
ner. The fumes of ihe liquid completely cov
ered bun, ao that in one second he stood gasp
ing for breadth ; in another, moving quick aud
greatly agitated, but too plainly telling his
awful suffering. Dr. Steele, wbo stood a tew
paces oil*, was slightly affected, and Mr. Free
man, titling: within two or three feet, waa so
affected as to unable him to breathe for some
time. The whole house was soon title d with
tbe fumes, aud the sick even had to leave bis
bed for a short lime. As soou as possible tbe
clothes of I>r. Wallace were removed off him,
and tbe fluid squeezed outof his whiskers, aud
he placed in bed, when he again began to
breathe. His eyes and lace were burned in
an awtul manner. For nine day* he was com
pletely blind. Now, at sixteenth day, be is
able to see a little out of one eye, while he still
suffers greatly with ihe other.
Matrimonial Advertisements in Tur
key.—The Turkish newspaper published at
Constantinople contains the lollowing adver
lisemeut: "A young girl, Delisch by name, of
the (Circassian) tribe of Nogais, seventeen
years old, very handsome, of good family, and
having received nu excellent education, ber
brother bearing the title of Bey, makes tbe of
fer to marry some young man, provided he
succeeds in pleasing her. Particulars may be
beard of at Hafiz Pacha's, President of the com
mission entrusted with the control of the emi
gration from Circassia."
Military Discipline in Louisville —On
Monday last, at Louisville, Ky., while a pri
vate of the Marion Kill. Company was exe
cuting the manual at a parade of that carps,
he accidentally discharged his piece before
drawing the ram red from the barrel. His
carelessness drew Iroin one of the officers a
severe reprnn. tnd, which theiudepeudeut pri
vate resented with a blow ; a rough-aud-tum
ble fluht ensued, ia which the brother of the
private took pari, the two soldiers administer
ing to their single superior a severe thrashing.

Fischer and Jones immediately pursued bint,
and after a short rare Fischer came up with
tbe fugitive, who turned upon bim aud stab- .
bed him three times in tbe right aria nud hnnd
with a large knite. Jones then came up, bat
finding he also was to be stabbed, be threw a
stone at the ruffian, who stood threatening him
with death,aud vowing that no whiten).an
should take bim. Seeing that a crowd was
gathering, the negro again took to his heel*,
cutting at all wbo came within bis reach, aud
running a complete gauntlet amid tbe shower
of bricks and stones hurled at bim as he tied
up Cary street, some of them striking hia head
and glancing off as if thrown against ai. iron
mound. ArVnen near Mayo* bridge, a well di
rected brick knocked hi* heels from under
bim, and in hi* fail be dropped hi* knife, but

to know who was there, heard some oue rnn
out and shut the back door. Suspecting that
all waa not right, Mr. Q,. made au examina
tion ol the premises, and learned from hia
daughter, on her return borne, that she had
been robbed of about a*, iv money, and a gold
chain valued at £-.\3. Mr. Q. at once suspected
a negro woman named Betsy, wbo had been in
his service the first el the year, but afterward*
discharged tor stealing, and securing tbe ser
vices ot watchman Pleasants aud his partner,
went to Mrs. Martha Johnson's and obtained
her leave to search the room occupied by
Hetty. In a very short time Mr. Pleasants
discovered tbe money aud the chain, concealed
iv a pair of shoes belonging to the prisoner,
and she was taken into custody. Yesterday
morning she was examined before tbe Mayor,
and tbeu remanded tor felony at ihe next term
of tbe Hustings Court. It the prisoner is
proved to have committed the offence in tbe

tened the doors of the house lo get to the
plunder, she will be found guilty of bur
glary,aud may be hung or transported beyond
the limits ot tbe United States.
