placed it, but subsequently with the inten
tion of shooting a dog,he placed in the mus
ket an additional heavy charge of quail shot,
forgetting at the same time to inform Mrs.
R. of the change in the condition of the gun.
On Thursday evening, a disagreement oc
curred between the mother and lad, during
which, the boy threw a sharp piece of coal
at his step-mother which cut her cheek bad
ly; she then put him out of doors. Mrs.
Richardson was very much enraged at him
when she put him out and made a threatning
expression to him. He did not return to the
house until yesterday morning, and when
Bhe saw him approaching, she took the mus
ket, and with the intention of intimidating
him, snapped the gun, which did not go off,
as it was not capped. She went into the
house, got a cap, and returned, when she
rested the gun over a fence and fired. The
lad dropped to the ground, and when Mrs.
Richardson saw this, she dropped the gun
and screamed for help, and ran to the boy.
His sister came out, and together they car
ried the lad into the house, when they ap
plied restoratives to hiip,', but without any
effect. Dr. Shields was sent for, but. the
boy was too far gone, and died about twenty
minutes after the doctor's arrival.
The shot took effect in the bowels and
ljft side and one hundred and thirty-tmm Bhots
entered the body. There were many wounds
in the thigh; the two shots that were the
immediate cause of his death, pierced the
left external illiac artery, from which ho
bled to death. . Twenty-four shots were ex
tracted from his bowels, and the hip and thigh
Were mangled in a horrible manner.
At twelvo o'clock Mr. Coroner Arthurs
was called upon to hold an inquest, and Dr.
Shiolds hold a post mortem examination of
the body. After the examination of the futh-

May 14. A fire broke out
foreign and domestic, has fallen from ninety
eight to seventy pounds per head.
We have closed rolling-mills until we nave
almost annihilated the manufacture of rail
road iron, and destroyed the competition Jor
the sale of an article so necessary for the
cheap transportation to market of our products.
We have diminished the export of lead
from 800,000 to 300,000 pigs; that of hemp
I'roinGO.OOOto 111,000 bales; and the products
of wool at least ten millions of pounds.
Tho manufacture ot corn and huy into
pork and beef, butter, cheese und lard, de
clines daily, and tho value of exports from
tho west to the east has fallen from sixty-two
dollars per ton ill 1845 to forty dollars per ton
We have thus diminished the market Tor
cotton, und huve placed ourselves under the
necessity for exporting more, the conse
quence of which is seen in the fact that it has
fallen even below the price of the revenue
tarill'of 1840-2 then the lowest that had
ever been known, with a certainty of great
further decline, should the crops prove lurge.
We have diminished the domestic market
for food to be consumed by the growers ol
wool and hemp, and the producers of cloth
and of iron, cobI and lead, anu mat minimi
tion cannot be estimated at less thn n fifty
millions of dollars per annum; und yet our
ability to supply food to the world declines
from year to year, ami us tne muniijnrmre m
corn and hay into pork, beef, butter, cheese
and lurd, declines, us we become more de
pendent upon foreign nations for wool and
hemp, lead, clotll and iron.

iiort.tliatof rice has fallen in both quantify
and price, and that of naval stores bus in
creased in quiintity while it has declined in
We produce less of every thing, and the
consumption of all articles or necessity is
gradually declining, producing a steady de
terioration in the condition of our people.
We are running iu debt to foreign nations
for articles of luxury. Speculation is cv
ery where, ami confidence is no wlw.re; for every
man feels that the events of each successive

Buffalo, Mav 1 1. About half past one
o'clock this A. M., the Eagle Street Theatre
was discovered to be on tire, and before tho
alarm could be given the lire hud made such
rapid progress that it was impossible for the
firemen to arrest it, before the entiro build
ing and its contents were laid in ashes."
The loss must be u heavy one both to the
owner ofthe building and the lessees, Messrs.
Curr &. Warner.
We understand that there is no insurance.
We have not been able to learn any of the
particulars, as to how and in what part of the
building the fire originated, but from appear
ances it. must have taken in the green room.

Emigration fkoM Miciikmn to Califor
nia. A correspondent of the Cleveland
Plain Dealer, writing from Jonesvilje, Mich
igan, says that during the past two months
three hundred teams have pnssnd there on
their way to California. Each team will
average four horses, three nv.'n, one woman
and one child: making in ull 1200 horscs.DOO
men, 300 women, and 300 children.. It is
also estimated that each man takes money
ami property to the amount of 92-Hr; which
would, in the total amount to $225,000.
The counfj' ol II i 1 Isilale has contributed more
to the tiile of emigration than any other
county in the- State, and no less than gtiOr
000 will be tilken from that county, this
spring, by California emigrant. : '
