that he is n il entitled ro anith-r change for

Impudent belief that he could defy tha

which bad been Gxed f r his execution. It
is to be (ervenily hoped by every one who
values the saDctity of the dearest relations
in the social system that on or about the
5lh day of January Dext thin man shall b
exernted. We copy from tbe Richmond
Di-'jia'ch a graphic acconnt of the scenes
which ensned npon the cloning to him of the
delusive door of Hope :
When the news of the action of the Conrt
of Appeals reached the county crmrt-hon.se,
where the conrt was in session, the qnestion
that arose was, who ihouli break it to the
ill-fated orisoner. who had been all the
morning walking to and fro in his cell,
anxiously awaiting the tidings, thonga ftill
strangely confident of a favorable renlt.
The aad .inry appropriately fell npon Mr.
George W. Thomas, one of the pHsouer's
t'aithtu! counsel. Deputy Sher d Eprleston
went to the jail at 2 o'clock, and opening
the cells, the prisoners came down as nsnai
to their dinner. Phillips had taken his ra
tions np stairs and was coming down for an
other purpose, when he was told that Mr.
Thomas wished to see him at the g ite. They
shook hands through the iron bars, and
it was hardly neees-iary for the lawyer to
suesk, as his countenance told the story.
rord turned towr1s the orison door, then
Dued and aked Mr. Egileston if Mr.
Thomas might speak with huu in his c-jll.
The permission was accordod ; but before
the sherilTand the lawyer had entered the
apartment the prisoner had thrown himself
npon a chair burying his face in his handi,
burst into tears. His whole frame quivered
with emotion, sob followed sob tn quick suc
cession, and for several minutes, not a word
was spoken Presently Mr. Thomas (his
own voice husky) approached, and placing
his hand npon the poor fellow's shoulder,
liemred him to be calm, cheer up, and in a
f. w words assured him that his counsel bad
now done all tha' they conld except to oh.
tain a brief delay before the dsy of execu.
tion. It only remained for him to make
bis peace with Heaven, aud he uinst re.
member that there were many praying for
the salvation of his soul. To ail this and
much more Phillips listened, but sid J h
login reply. Tnere was nothing now to y
Death certain death stared him in ttie
This interview lasted but a short ti ne.
His (rieuds withdrew, and for mote than an
hour he was left alone. At about 4 o'clock
the Rev. J. B. Taylor, a Bap'ist mini-ter,
who had 'i days past knou ihe yomhful
culprit, and his' lather t-for- him. ppd. d

still pacing the sto.iv Q v, and crying -I'll
as if his heart would bresk. Iu rely to
tbe question whether he was in a -a:e of
mind to receive spiritual advice, he s..id
"Certainly." At hist he did not recogn z
the veoeiable divine who entered his ceil,
kilt afoerwards said he rememhered h m
well, and thanked him tor coming to hina

By the sentence of the Circuit Court of

These wads had five gates; the principal
one was called the "Gate uf Ilercnlaneun,"
aud stood at the point, where the Appiaa

Ms first walk was along the "Street of

and leads to the "Gate of Ilerculanenm."
I felt very strangely when I entered tno

' Last Days of Pumped," by B ilwer, you
cau nnderstvnd why my feelings were m
singular. To taka a stroil througn an al
most perfect Roman house ; to see all its
arrangements; to tread npon its marbla
doors, loot iuto its bed-chambers and stand
in its reception hall ; to go down into its
cellars and around its gtrdensand among
its baths ; is one of those intensely vivid
things that the distant past rarely permits
yon to et joy. I entered through a narrow
passage (vestibulum) iuto the hall (atrinm)
aud tueuce into tbe bed-roms connee'ed
hy doors with this hall. The Chambers were
quite small, not larger than the little dor
mito ies iu old colleges, and they had no
in Ion's. I saw the oilier apartments. It
was a sort of d miile house, one set of r situs
for ar:ii.mer, and one for winter. Lks nio.i
of the private edidces, it was oue story.
The wine Cellar below, was quite larre. A
back wall surround d three Miles of the
area, wi bin wticti were the gardens.
Dowu iu the gloomy cellar, I was sh.iwn
where skeletons were found huddled to

of the house who probably hurried to f.ai

But to see thv genins of Pompeii, one
ran-t see the public edifices. Everywhere
in them, the Roman idea of vastuess, stren
gth, endurance, is plainly visible, while at
tne same time tbe ornamental figures sncb
as the ba'chanates and the Fauns and the
frescoes of arabesques, show the rtotninancv
of Greek taste. Around the Forum, most
of the Temples are situated. Here sre the
Temples of Jupiter, of Fortune, of Tenus;
and also the Pantheon and the Basilica.
And grand they mu-t have been with their
courts and a atutes, their pillars and porti
coes, for they are gr and even now as ruins.
Some of the altars, wiih their panels if
carved ti'ires, are surpassmc'v tine. As I
walked around them or leaned upon their
mirhle slabs, now bare and cold, and read
their inscriptions, it was an hour f,,r the
vivid recall of those facts which these

this point was mo.t impressive. Situated

THE EPISCOPAL CONVENTION,

Triennial (JotivenHon-- it hat has

From the If. V. Times, 1st instant.)
Th General Onven'fon of the Protest,
ant Episcopal Church, whose triennial ses.
sbn Ins just closed, accomplished very lit.
tie, and occupied a great deal of time in
doing it, aa is nsual with convocations of this
character. Many measures of nnnsual im.
portance were proposed, but, with very few
exceptions, they were either not acted on
at all, or the final dispostl of them was post
poned for three years or more, t ghteen
days were spent for :t.e n st part in discus

Yet if all that was oiperted of it was not
d .no, it cannot b-i ai I that the asM-mbling
ofthishiwly at this tin.u without its
fi"l effects. The Gen. rul Convention is a
sitety-Vilve tn 'he Church. When d;sseti

the best regulated dio-.-ese, the extremists

can avply emollient, f r the present, and
srive the patient something to hope for from
the next General Convention. In th:s way

! which caused so much ,x,eiemer,t in tbe
d .veses of New York and New Jersey last
sprine, was brnnght before this Convention
in the form of virions propositions to so
amend the canon on intrusions which he
had been found guilty of violatinir, as to
give larger liberty lo ministers seeking to
ffi-iate within the parocisl limits of other
clereyuien. To have msde such an amend
ment at this time would have beeu con
st ructiv-i-ly to roifess that the cannon, it
stands-, is as illiberal in its sptrit as Jtr.
Tvpg's fi iends have claimed it to be. To
refuse to make stl'di an m-'ndrr.ent wasvir
tnal'y to sn-tain the pary of Rev. Drs.
S'nh'.s and B g;s. In cither ca.se one par.
