PATAPSCO FEMALE INSTITUTE, MARYLAND HP HE TRUSTEES of the Patapseo Female JL Institute announce to the public that the additional buildings and improvements commenced by them a year ago in accordance with the subjoined resolutions, are now com plete. These improvements have not been made with a view to increase the school, but for the greater conveni ence and comfort of the usual number of pupils. The new chapel is a handsome and most appropriate structure, for the exclusive use of the inmates of the In stitute, and in all its arrangements it is most complete. It is furnished with a new organ of line construction and ex cellent tone. The administration of Mr. Archer for the past year and the present has been attended witluunprecedented suc cess, and the Trustees feel themselves fully justified in recommending the Institute to the continued favor of the South. It has pre-eminence in healthfulness. The pupils avoid ing. on the one hand, tin- debilitating effects of a Southern climate, and on the otiier the rigors of the North, have few of the interruptions incident to both these climates. It is sutlieicntly near to the city of Baltimore to enjoy the benefits of a city without any of its evils. As an Institution of learning it has the advantage of a full organization, a resident chaplain, and a corps of ac complished teachers and professors, called together from time to time in the long experience of those having charge of the lustitute. The Trustees of the Patapseo Female Institute, having been duly notified by Mrs. Lincoln Phelps of her intention to resign her office of principal at the close of the present school year, have elected Robert 11. Archer as her succes sor. The eminent success of Mr. Archer in conducting for many years a School for Young Ladies in the city of Balti more, entitles him to our confidence as a jierson peculiarly qualified to maintain the present high standing, and insure the permanent prosperity of the Institution; and with this view we are engaged in the erection of another building in addition to the present extensive accommodations of the Institute. CHAS. W. DOR3EY, PRESIDENT. WM. DENNY, M P., SECRETARY. T. WATKINS LIGON, E. HAMMOND, JOHN. P. KENNEDY. fe22-dtf. LA YV S< JHOOL OP THE UNIVERSITY AT CAMBRIDGE, MASS. The Instructors in this School are lion. .TOEL PARKER, LL.D., Royal Professor. Hon. TIIEOPHILUA PARSONS, LL.D., Dane Professor. Hon. EMORY WASHBURN, LL.D., University Professor. The course of instruction embraces the various branches of the Common Law, and of Equity, Admiralty, Com mercial, International and Constitutional Law, and the Jurisprudence of the United States. The Law Library consists of about 14.000 volumes, and as new works ap pear they are added, and every effort is made to render it complete. Instruction is given by oral lectures and expositions, (and by recitations and examinations, in connection with them,) of which there are ten every week. Two Moot Courts are also holden in each week, at each of which a cause, previously given out, is argued by four students, and an opinion delivered by the Presiding Instructor. Rooms and other facilities are also provided for the Club Courts; and an Assembly is held weekly for practice in de bate, ami acquiring a knowledge of parliamentary law and proceedings. Students may enter the School in any stage of their pro fessional studies or mercantile pursuits, and at the com - menement of either term, or in the middle or other part of term. They are at liberty to select what studies they will pur e according to their view of their own wants and at tainments. The Academical year, which commences on Thursday, six weeks after the third Wednesday in July,is divided into two terms, of twenty weeks each, with a vacation of six weeks at the end of each term. During the Winter vacation, the Library is opened, warmed, and lighted, for the use of the members of the School.

HIGGIVS AND CHARLES HICK ELL AND FULLY WARRANTED. In introducing this HIGHLY AUTHENTICATED FERTILISER to the agriculturist of the United States, for the year I*>S, we forbear any lengthened remarks, as their intelligence is alreailv informed of the value of BONES TREATED WITH SULPHURIC ACID, producing the bi-phospate of lime, and yielding SOLUBLE J'HOS PHQRIC ACID , the efficient and indispensable nutri ment of plants. As many preparations are offered to the public styled "Super Phospate," we have for our own, and the protection of the agricultural community, surrendered up to Drs. Iliggins and Bickell the entire scientific feature of the RHODES' SUPER PHOSPHATE OF LIME, and every lot offered for sale is regularly analyzed by theui and reported to the public, which we conceive will be a proper caution to the agricultural community to protect them from impo sition in the many spurious articles now offered in the market.

Ilonry William Herbert, the author, better known by the wm dc jln nit: of "Frank Forrester," com mitted suicide about two o'clock Monday morn ing, in his rooms at the Stevens House, Broadway, New York, by shooting himself through the heart with a pistol. Domestic difficulties led to the com mission of the rash act. The deceased was married about three months ago, hut he had not been living with his wife more than six weeks or so when tliey quarrelled, and she separated from hiin. Herbert suffered immenso mental agony in consequence of the severe blow, and in his raving often threatened to commit suicide. He carried the dreadful threat into execution on Monday, and accomplished his purpose in a cool and premeditated manner. About three weeks ago deceased left his home at the "Cedars," near Newark, N. J., and came to New York. He took a suit of comfortable rooms at the Stevens House, and resumed tho labors of his profession as an author, until within the past few days, when he determined to put an end to his ex istence, and thus end all his earthly troubles. With that object in view he prepared himself for death; wrote a number of letters informing his friends of 1 lis intention to commit suicide, and givin<- tlieiu directions how to dispose of his body and his effects. It was not the intention of deceased to commit sui cide as soon as lie did, as the date oi his letters evidently show that lie had set apart to-dav—the 18th inst. —for the commission of the deed. On Sunday Mr. Herbert sent lot Mr. l'hillip 11. Anthon. a friend of liis, and requested him to re main with him as long as possible. The deceased complained of great loneliness, and signified his in tention to commit suicide before twentv-fonr hours would elapse. Mr. Anthon passed the entire day with him, and endeavored to cheer him up and dis suade him from self-destruction. Herbert talked of nothing but suicide, and evinced a desire to perish in the cemetery at Newark on the spot where be last parted with his wife. He told Mr. Anthon that his wife had declined holding any further intercourse or correspondence with him, and that a letter to that effect had reached him through his lawyer in Nassau street, on Saturday. The effect produced b v the determination on the part of his wife to cease ail intercourse with him was sucli as to hasten the work of self-destructian some two days. About two o'clock in the afternoon deceased and Mr. Anthon left the hotel for a walk, and returned about ten P. M. They went up stairs to the rooms occupied by deceased, when the latter again broach ed the subject of suicide and said he was determined to kill himself that night. While they were talking together, about two o'clock A. M.," Herbert rose from lii seat and went into his bedroom for a few seconds, when the sharp report of a pistol startled Mr. Anthon. The work was accomplished. Simul taneous almost with the discharge of the pistol the exclamation "I told you I would do it," came from the lips of the suicide, as he staggered back into the parlor and fell to the floor. Mr. Anthon immedi ately pull the bell-rope and gave the alarm with ttic view of procuring the aid of a physician, but before any medical aid could ho obtained life had fled. The hall from the pistol entered the left breast of deceased and punctured the heart, causing almost instant death. When the room occupied by deceased was visited by Coroner Gamble yesterday morning, the scene presented was a most melancholy one. The body of deceased lav extended upon the parlor lloor in a large pool of blood. Near the corpse, on a writing desk, were several packages of letters. Among the number was one found directed to the Coroner, ex planatory of the cause which led to the commission of the suicide? It read as follows: HERBERT'S LETTER TO THE CORONER. TCESOAY, May 18th, 1858—(Threemonths") since the happiest day of my life.) j To avoid all trouble, and simplify your duty, 1 have to state that 1 have taken my own life by a pistol, no one being privy to my doing so or to my design. My reason for this act consists in no remorse for anything 1 have done or left undone—from no pe cuniary pressure—from no inability or fear of ina bility to support myself—from no weak fear of pub lie opinion, least of all of the public opinion of New ark, which I do now, as 1 have always done, utter ly disregard and despise—from no embarrassment arising from any indebtedness. I have abundance of employment, and the pros pect of much more. Had the people of Newark— whom I forgive from the bottom of my heart—suf fered me to live harmlessly and happily in my hum ble home, and to amend my life where it was in er ror in a new sphere, which I was honestly prepared to do, I might have paid off all my debts, and lived many years among you an honest, useful and happy man. My debts will be paid from assets to the last dollar. It was not, however, so to bo. My blood and the guilt of it are upon those women and men of New ark who tirst sowed suspicion, distrust and dissen sion between myself and the sweetest creature God ever gave and man took away from an unhappy sinner. My own unhappy temper did the rest. The reason for this act is simple. My life, long, sad and solitary and weary, and without an object beyond labor to earn a living for the dav, has be come utterly hopeless, hateful and unendurable. A hope had been kindled in my heart; again my home had got a light brighter than sunshine—my life bad a purpose; I loved her unutterably—happy; all this has been dashed down, all is lost forever— home, hope, sunshine. She let life go likewise; since, henceforth it is another word for torture. I would not deny falsel.v one fault of which I am conscious, especially at this moment; I would not deny 7 that I erred towards her whom this day shows I loved more than life. I did err, but it was hastily, in rash act or rash word; never, so may God deal with me, in thought or intimation. I never had a word with her about money matters, nor cared nor scarcely knew whether she had or had not money. I neyer laid a hand or linger on her in wrath in my life—what 1 said or did wrongfully 1 repented on the instant. I have endeavored to atone for it ever since. I die for it this day. I think, I hope I de serve pity more than blame, but I know that I shall not find it, least of all in Newark. I can sav truly 7 , with my last breath, I never wronged a man or woman in my life by premedita tion, or failed to ask pardon and make atonement when I could do so. I neTer bore malice in my life; I repent of all my faults and sins, and have endeavored to amend them. I die in perfect peace and charity with all men; I beg forgiveness of all those against whom I have sinned; I forgive all those who have sinned against me, even the woman who called at my own house and set my wife's thoughts first against me —in proof of it I am sure I know her, but do not name her name; I beg God to forgive me, as 1 forgive all my enemies; I die in perfect faith and trust in my Redeemer, and believe that in Him I shall have eter nal life. HENRY WILLIAM HERBERT. Then there was the following letter to the news paper press of this country, evidently intended for publication: HERBERT'S BETTER TO THE PUBLIC. To the Preen of the United State* of America : Before going to my account I would say a few words to the Press of America and to its conductors, as to men among whom 1 have, for many years, been more or less associated. I 4 have my faults, my failings; I have done my share of evil in my life, as all men have done; per haps, 1 have done my share of good likewise. Of my private history few men know anything, fewer still, know much—no one knows the whole. It cannot concern the public to know anything. As a writer let me bo judged—as a man let my God judge me. 1 implore not praise, nor a favorable construction —I implore silence. For what I have to account with God let me account with God, and not with man. who may uncertainly perceive and distinguish facts, but certainly cannot perceive causes or divine motives and intentions. I do not even ask charity; I only implore silence. Let the good that I have done, if any, be interred with my bones—let the evil also. For the evil, I can sav positively, is such as can do no evil after mo. 1 have taught, I have incul cated, I have put forth nothing which I did believe to be false or evil, nor anything which I did not be lieve to be good and true. In all my life I have written no line of which 1 am ashamed; no word which I desire to blot. I have done many things wrongly, many things of which 1 am ashamed, many things of ivbich I bave sincerely repented, many things, under the pressure and temptation of poverty and necessity, to which I am not accustomed by my education, which I hope 1 should not doagain under any temp tation. lam very sorry. I have been weak at times and have fallen—who has not done so? For justice sake, for charity's sake, for God's sake let me rest. I bear an honorable name; I have striven hard, in great trials, in great temptations, in a foreign country, in a false position, among men who did not, perhaps could not, sympathise with me, to keep it honorable. As you would nave your own names honored, and your sons preserve them to you, I charge you do not dishonor mine. Few will miss me when I am gone; probablv none lament me—so be it!—only, I implore you, do not mis-interpret and malign me. Having said this, I have said nearly all—one word more, only—if, as I presume will be the case, my earnest and hopeful appeal for repose be disre garded—if the vultures of the press pounce on my cold remains to tear through them the heart strings of my living relatives—to blazon forth all my mis deeds, in unblushing colors to the sun, let none of my friends, if I have a friend, stand forth to defend me. Defence only provokes bitter attack, and gives a keener tooth to"scandal. 1 die, forgiving every man who has wronged ine asking forgiveness of every man whom 1 have wronged. I have atoned, so far as 1 know, or can atone, for every wrong 1 have ever done. I leave the means, 1 believe, if they be carefully managed, to pay every thing that I owe, and, pur haps to leave a small surplus. I never shrank, while 1 was alive, from meeting the consequences of my deeds, face to face: 1 never said a word to a man's back, which I would not, or did not, say to his face. Remember, now, all von that would assail me, that i MI/ lark in turned forever —that, henceforth, forever, 1 can disprove no slander that is spoken of me—that with me no witness can be ever more con fronted— that from no accusation, how false soever, can I prove myself not guilty. Of all cowardice, the most base and cruel is to strike tlio dead, who can make no defence or answer. I ask no praise. Do not praise me—probably I deserve none. I deserve reproach, doubtless, for I am mortal and have sinned—say so, then, of me, if you say any thing, and let my sins go with my mortality to His judgment who can tell, not only when and where, hut uii i/, tliey were committed, and how far they have palliation, how far they deserve pardon. Remember, also, when you judge me, that of all lives mine has been, almost, the most unhappy. No counsellor, no friends, no countrv have been mine for six and twenty weary years;"every hope has broken down under my fool as soon as it touched it; every spark of happiness las been quenched as soon as it has been kindled. It' 1 have sinned much, aid sorrowed much, I have also, lorrd much—more perhaps than I have either sinned or sorrowed. It is the last drop that overflows the golden jfcowl, the last tension that breaks the silver cord. My last hope is gone— my last love and jny life go together—and so good night to lIENUY HERBERT. May 18,1858. THE APPEARANCE OF lIIS ROOM YESTERDAY. To Mr. Antlion's care was directed a package containing a number of private letters, which were principally directed to persons residing in this city. A letter making Mr. Antlion liis executor, and giv ing the latter the most minute instructions regard ing the disposition of the body, was also found upon tho writing desk. In this letter deeeased de sired that his remains should be interred in a plain oak collin, and that the inscription thereon should he— llenry William Herbert, Aged 51. And nothing more. An envelope containing a lock of his wife's hair was inscribed as follows : Lay this on my heart for charity, Their names are written there. The interior of this envelope also contained the following inscription in the hand writing of deceas ed, which he evidently meant for his epitaph : HENRY WILLIAM HERBERT, of England, Aged 51 years. Infdirissim tin. Another letter contained a draft at sight for £lO, drawn bv the deceased upon a gentleman in New ark for the purpose of defraying the expenses of the funeral. A portrait of Mr. Herbert's first wife hung in the parlor, near the writing desk. The painting represented her to be a lady about 20 years of age, with extremely handsome features.— In the bed-room of deceased hung an old hunting jacket, ingeniously made, which attracted the at tention of all those who were able to gain admit tance to the premises. CORONER'S INQCEST. Mr. Anthon was present when the Coroner ar rived, and cheerfully ottered to aid the latter in the discharge of his unpleasant duty. The cause lead ing to the commission of the suicide was fully ex plained by Mr. Antlion, when the inquest upon the body of the deceased was commenced by impan nelling a jury of the following named gentlemen : —Samuel Townsend, George L. Davis, I'hilip Far ley. Robert Ferguson, John Mills, John Ward. The first witness put upon the stand was Mr. An tlion, who testified as follows: —I reside at No. 15 West Twenty-fourth street; 1 have known deceased about ten years; intimately since 1851; 1 spent the day in company with deceased, and we returned to the hotel at iO o'clock in the evening; 1 came to see him because lie complained of feeling very lone ly on account of liis wife having left him, and on yesterday he told me there was a letter from liis wife to Mr. Lowrio, a lawyer in Nassau street, declining any further intercourse or correspon dence with him; all the evening he talked of killing himself; this has been a prevalent theme with him for some time; lie told me yesterday evening that lie would go to the cemetery in Newark, where he last parted from his wife, and there shoot himself; he kept walking about the room after he came back; he said lie would kill himself on the day of the month on which he married his wife: lie was married on the lGtli of February last; I did not re member that yesterday was the Kith of the month; while we were yet talking in the room he went to his bedroom, and I heard something like the snap ping of a pistol; lie came out instantly and said, "I told you I would do it," and dropped on the floor; I (lulled at the hell and alarmed the house; this was the entire history of the case; the letters he lias left me fullv explain it; deceased was not at all under tlie iniluence of liquor; this occurred about two o'clock this morning; the letters now shown to the jury are in the handwriting of the deceased. Joseph 51. Donlan, being sworn, says:—l am head porter at tlie Stevens House; about two o'clock this morning I heard a bell pull violently; I ran iqi stairs and found deceased lying upon liis face on the floor. Mr. Antlion was in the room, and said he had shot himself; 1 found the pistol on the tloor; de ceased was groaning, and he died soon after; de ceased came here three weeks ago last Saturday. i'hitlip O'Hanlon, being duly sworn, says: 1 have examined the body of deceased; find a gun-shot wound two inches" below tlie left nipple; I am of opinion the ball passed through the lungs, nnd that the deceased died of hemorrhage therefrom. The letters addressed to the Coroner and the press were then read to the jury, who, after a brief delib eration, rendered tlie following VERDICT. That Henry William Herbert came to liis death by suicide, by shooting himself with a pistol, May 17, 1858. THE LIFE AND WRITINGS OF MR. HERBERT. Mr. Herbert was a descendant, on his father's side, from the noble houses of Pembroke and Percy, and was the eldest son of the eminent Dean of Man chester, the Honorable and Very Reverend William Herbert, celebrated both as a literary man and a liberal politician. He was born in London April 7, 1807, being at the time of his death over fifty-one years of age. 11c entered Eaton college when thirteen years of age, and graduated at Cuius col lege, Cambridge, at the age of twenty-two. Owing to some cause not fully known, hut variously ascribed to family difficulties and pecuniary reverses, lie left England to try his fortune in the United States, whore he arrived in December, 1831. His liberal education and proficiency as a Greek scholar ena bled him soon to procure the situation of Greek pro fessor in the large classical academy of Mr. Ilud dard, where he officiated for eight years. His class ical scholarship, his wide range of, information, both theoretical and practical, in every department of literature, and his extraordinary capacity for literary labor could not remain dormant all this time, and during nearlv the whole period of his tu torship he was engaged on literary works of vari ous descriptions. Besides contributing largely to various periodi cals, he edited the American Monthly Jfayazinc from 1833 to 183G, published "The Brothers, a tale of the Fronde." in 1835, and "Oliver Cromwell," in 1837; the latter being his last work previous to leaving liis professorship and devoting himself wholly to authorship. Since that time he has published the following works: "Marmaduke Wyvil." "The Roman Traitor; A Romance Founded on Cataline's Conspiracy." "Henrv YITI, and his Six Wives." "The Cavaliers of England." "The Chevaliers of France." "Knights of Fngland, Franco and Scotland." "Captains of the Old World, as Compared with Great Modern Strategists." "A X'oetical Translation of tho Prometheus and Agamemnon of JEschylus, and Prometheus and Ag amemnon of Sophocles." "The Wager of Rattle." "Persons and Pictures from tho Histories of France and England." "Captains of the Roman Republic." SPOUTING. "The Field Sports." "Fish and Fishing of North America." "Game in its Seasons." "The l>eer Stalkers." "The Young Sportsman's Manual." "Warwick Woodland." "My Shooting Box." "The Quomdon Hounds." "The Horse and Horsemanship of America." Besides these he was an occasional contributor to a number of periodicals, being more generally known under his literaly nomtle plume ot "Frank Forrester." He was also attached to several daily journals, and at the time of his death had an en gagement to write for Applcton's new Encyclope dia. His translations were considered excellent, especially those of the Greek and French, and in deed he has been called one ot the tinest scholars in the country. His works on wild game and field sports were said to bo the best of the kind in the country, and his last and most elaborate work on the Horse, was the most voluminous of his labors. His pursuits and tastes led him to devote much at tention to sportsmanship and natural history, and in these departments he is alone known to a great in any. Shortly after his arrival in the United States he married a very attractive lady from Maine, who has now been dead about ten years; by her he had a son who is now about sixteen years of age, who is in the Military Academy of Woolwich, England. Ho received from his father for some years an annual income of one hundred pounds a year, to contribute to his support. On the death of his father the money was placed in the hands of trustees in this country, for the purpose of erecting a homestead suited to his own tastes, which should be set apart for his use during his life, hut which should revert to his son on his death, and not be responsible tor his debts. . , ... Accordingly about ten years since, ho selected a PRICE TWO CENTS beantilul little spot, about two miles from Newark, N. J,, on the Belleville road, situated on the banks of the Passaic, just at the foot of the celebrated Mount Pleasant cemetery. The passer by would hardly notice the house, it i 9 so completely embed ded in shrubbery and trees. The grounds, though covering but one acre of land, are a hunch of hil lock, and arranged with romantic taste. The house is built in the Gothic style, though it seems now somewhat dilapidated externally. He had it taste fully furnished and decorated with emblems and im plements of sportsmanship, and supplied with a fine library, expending on the whole about $5,000. He named his place "The Cedars," from a number of tall cedars which skirt the road that winds along the river just by his door. Here he has lived for the last ten years alone, until his marriage recently. Hui ing his sojourn in this city Herbert became in volved in A..ore than one personal dilliculty. His impulsive manner and fiery disposition often caused his friends much uneasiness. In the days when the Washington Hall philosophers were in the zenith of their glory, Herbert was a frequent visiter at their headquarters, corner of Broadway and Chambers street, on the site now occupied by Stewart. There he quarrelled with a gentleman, and upon some slight pretext challenged him to fight a duel. For this Herbert was indicted, and we believe the in dictment remained over him up to the day of his death. It was about this time that the community was shocked by the fatal rencounter between Bar ton an Graham, at Hoboken. The affair of honor in which Herbert was a prin ciple took place immediately afterwards, and caused much excitement in literary circles. Herbert was an excellent shot, and many old farmers in the neighborhood of New York can give ample proof of his superior skill In the use of firearms. His ample means, derived mninlv from his literary labors, en vied him to live well, hut his rather extravagant habVg i,.ft him almost always in debt. Those who were intimate with him, say that he seemed not to care for ir-oney. lie thought nothing of borrowing whatever he wanted, and always expended freely among his boon companions, his ready cash. His house was open always to his friends, whom, when his stock of finances would allow he would gather about him, and occupy days and sometimes weeks in festive enjoyments. His conviviality was his greatest enemy. Sometimes ho would work for months in his libra ry, industriously, and even assiduously. But when fatigued with his intense labors, or annoyed by care he seemed to be completely unmanned, and would relax rather too much, perhaps, for his own welfare. In these moods he was somewhat eccentric, and of tentimes the harsher features of his somewhat im perious temper would develop themselves so as to alienate temporarily his warmest friends. At these times he seemed to grow perfectly reckless and lie lias been seen on one occasion to he wheeling a wheelbarrow through the streets of Newark, fol lowed by a crowd of hooting boys. But when he became himself again he would, in the most melan choly strain, beseech liis friends to return. lie always wanted sympathy in his troubles, and often called in his intimate neighbors to talk and consult with him on these occasions. If anything was ailing with a favorite horse or dog, or "in fact any animal belonging to himself or friends, he was always ready and willing to proscribe, and was al ways successful in his treatment. Though so long a resident of the United States, he preferred to re main a British subject, and, indeed, always mani fested a strong national feeling and pride in his noble ancestry. He was bitterly opposed to the present national administration, and of strong anti slavery feelings. During tlie late crisis he became necessitated to retrench his expenses, and discharged his servants, several of which he generally kept. One day he was visited by one of his friends, who found htm busily engaged making a huge pot of soup, which, cither from absence of mind or inexperience, he had allowed to boil over twenty hours, and in whose praise he became quite eloquent. Recently, how ever, he evinced a disposition to abandon liis eccen tricities, and astonished some of his most intimate friends by an abrupt announcement that he intended to marry again. The ceremony took place on Tuesdav, February Ifi, in the Episcopal house of prayer in Newark, when he was united to Miss A del a R. Bridlong, a voung lady of twenty years of age, from Rhode Island, Rev. Mr. iShackleford, officiating. Only three of liis Newark friends were invited to the wedding—Rev. Mr. Scott, Mr. Kinney, editor and proprietor of the Nnrark bally Atlvrr'titer, and Mr. John Cliadwick. Sir. Anthon, his friend, made the arrangements, which were conducted with some secresy. The happy bridegroom little thought that just three months from that date, both himself and Rev. Mr. Scott, whom lie invited, would have ex changed the wedding garments for the shroud. He took his wife to his little forest home, and those who saw them there say that ho seemed to idolize her. Ho was happy when she was there, and unhap py when she was away, anil frequently said that now ho had some hope for the future. Hut what was the astonishment of his friends to learn, only seven weeks after his marriage, that his wife had left him forever, and returned to her parents! The gossips were, of course, busy with the cause of this unlocked for denouement. Some said his convivial habits had returned; others, that his eccentricities were distasteful to her; while those who were most intimate with his private affairs, said that busy in termedlers had poured into the ear of the happy wife poisonous suspicions ot her husband's love, and intimations that mercenary motives on her lit tle property had alone actuated him to the union; that he had in vain endeavored to ascertain the au author of the scandal, and had threatened to shoot himself if she did not reveal the name of his ac cuser; that harsh words resulted, and the bride of seven weeks departed from her husband's roof. Whatever may have been tiie cause of the separa tion, he now relapsed into one ofhis old despondent moods, and talked frequently of the insuffcrable ness ofhis life with so many cares resting upon him. He mentioned often to his friends that he would end his existence before many days. Aboutthree weeks since he left Newark for New York, bringing with him his choicest books, the portrait ofhis first wife, and some other select articles.lie complained bitterly that his Newark friends neglected him; that he could not walk the streets without being slighted, anil re peated that he was tired of life. Shortly after leav ing he advertised in the Newark Vaity Ailrerlincr that if his creditors—and there were many of tlieni —would send in their applications to Mr. Josiah Howe, of No. '2l William street, New York, they would be satisfied. His remaining furniture was handed over to one of his largest creditors, and the house given up to be let. The remainder of his sad story has been fully detailed above. He leaves an aged mother living in England, a sister who was married in this country and sailed in the last steam er, and a brother who is Governor of the Channel Islands, besides his son, before alluded to, in the British army, Peace to his ashes 1 LATER FROM MEXICO. rROGr.ESS OF TUB CIVIL WAR. [From (he X. O. Ev. Picayune, of May 10t/i.] The steamship Tennessee, Capt. Forbes, which left Vera Cruz on the 7th inst., arrived here this morning. We subjoin a letter from Vera Cruz : VERA CRPZ, May 7, 1858. —Before the departure of the Tennessee this morning, 1 endeavor to give vou a brief summary of the important events of the last fortnight. The arrival of President Juarez and Cabinet, makes of this city the provisional seat of govern ment of the Republic; and the said arrival will tend greatly to consolidate and encourage I'uros through out the country. Vera Cruz is now, indeed, a stronghold, and as long as the troops and people in side the wall are true to Zamora, the Governor, no force that Zuloaga might raise could prevail against it. True, it is said that Echeagaray, with 5,000 men, will give us a touch of his quality within a few days, but none of the knowing ones here believe he will be so rash. He can make no impression with his miserable lit tle batteries on a place defended by 100 heavy guns. If he relies on treachery among the insiders, he'll reckon without his host. If that is to be the game, the insiders could beat him, for thev have the most money, and every comfort besides. Pull bellies some times wax fat and kick, but it is your hungry belly that goes in for treason, stratagems and spoils. Re lv upon it, then, that the Heroic City will hold out. Should there be treachery, Zamora vows he'll retire to the castle with all the faithful, and not leavo one stone of the city standing upon another. And he' the man to do it—Caramba 1 General Garza is still bombarding Tampico, but the U. S. steamer Fulton is keeping him under wholesome restraint as regards neutrals. lie is rather an ardent young man. From the interior all is gloomy for the conmn-vn dore*. Osollo refuses to march without money. Miramon has been horribly drubbed by Vidaurri, and poor Zuloaga is in an awful tight place for want of funds. He's been trying to sell the revenues of the custom-houses, but as those who might purchase would require to be put in possession, there's an end to all hope in that quarter. Every important port of the Republic is in the hands of tho Consti tutionalists. In short, tho only bit of good luck tho concern at the capital has had lately, is the treachery on board the "Guerrero" man-of-war steamer, and her put ting into Tuspam (the only port in the Gulf ac knowledging Zuloaga) with a lot of military stores destined from this place for Tampico. But Zaiuora is preparing a number of gun-boats, and with the "Democrats" a ten-gun steamer, will soon make them smell thunder. Admiral Zerman, not finding Juarez on tho l'a eific, returned hither just in time to be one ot the first to welcome his arrival. He appears to be con fident of carrying out his plan of a sort of joint stock, consolidated private protectorate, u.—Where's old Sam Houston? A Mrs. Ready brought a suit in the Hudson Coun tv Courts against the Yew Jersey Railroad Compa ny, to recover the enormous sum of $50,000 damages, for the killing of her husband. The trial came on during the present term of the Court, and after a protracted hearing the jury disagreed and were dis charged.— Trenton American. The recent charter election at New Brunswick, New Jersey, must have resulted satisfactorily to all parties, if we may be allowed to judge from the complexion of the men elected. A democratic may or is chosen; a Fillmore man for recorder; an Amer ican and two repulieans for aldermen; two republi cans, three Americans, and one democrat for eoun cilmen; an American for clerk, and a democrat for marshal.
