His body lay on the bed on which be had thrown himself the previous evening, since when nothing had been heard or known of him. It was discovered on ex amination by the jury of inquest, thai there had been a determination of blood to the head, and from the quantity coagu lated in the breast and bead, apoplexy was, doubtless, the cause of his death. It was shown also thai he had eat and drank to repletion for two days previous. The verdict of the jury was "death by a visitation of God." The deceased, a ship carpenter htm self, is said to be the son of a man named Thomas Thompson, a ship builder in the navy yard at Philadelphia. THE WEATHER. This is the subject resorted to by some people when all others fail, an 1 it may bethought by our home folks, here that we cannot inform them on the subject, and that they know as much about it as we do. This is admitted but for the sake of letting people abroad know what a delightful country this is, it may not be amiss to say, that up to Thursday morning last, for the space of three weeks, more delightful weather never blessed any part of the earth, than we had here. Pleasant sunshine, imparting a gentle warmth during the day, and evenings operated on by some heavenly influence, to match threw a brightness over creation, undimmed by moderate showers, so kind as to fall only at night. But passing the middle of December it has become a little chilly, and the bra cing north wind cuts around the corner, and whistles through the crannies, ma king ua believe winter has really come. If it did not though, we should be depr i ved of the finest season of the' year, and be unable to enjoy the vivifying warmth of summer.

Hy order of the Board, WM. E. U:T.KICIJ, CashV. Will the Legislature be ungrateful onough to repudiate the anti-bond ques tion, and refuse to carry out tho princi ples proposed and so strenuously advoca ted during the late canvass; nnd to which they were indebted for the victory then obtained? Will they have the ingrati tude and effrontery to refuse to bless the bridge which bore them safely over? We have heard it intimated that they would, but we are half unwilling to be lieve that political dishonesty could be carried so far, or that any party would resort to means to obtain a victory, which they would be ashamed to own ulter these foul means had served them. It is however, but in accordance with the subversive and annihilating measures of locofocoism: so the end is attained, it does not matter about the means. TEXXKSSEE. The disgraceful conduct of tho Ten nessee Legislature is still kopt up.

The Serneant- pect the "persecution will be nnd increased. Tbe latter guilty, and the indication are that tbe Colonel will meet with the The assurance of scowndrele ie at-Areas was despatched for them but i alarming. If. however, t Every "gale that sweeps from the north" the east, the south, and the west, brings to our ears, not, " the clash of re sounding arms," nothing that savours of honour or glory, nothing of which we should be proud or boastful, but a con tinual harping on the degradation of Mis sissippi; the name of a citizen of which wasoncea passport to respectability and credit. We are sorry for it; we deeply 'lament that such should be the condition of any State. We should mourn for such prostitution in any quarter, but for Mis sissippi, our native State, where honour and chivalry, energy and enterprize have long had an abiding place, to have bowed her neck beneath the sceptre of locofoco anti-bond degradation is too bad. If Maine, the State farthest from us, had knelt beneath the rod, we should have mourned in bitterness of soul, bat for the State in which agriculture has plougt ed the deepest furrow, where enterprize has rushed forth with more perseverance and determination than perhaps any where else, where has been reared in pride, that chivalric, high-souled feelin which would resist lo the last, any en croachment on rights of country or per son, to lay down her all upon the altar of party, is humiliating indeed. The Mississippian contains an article on the subject of the biJ of one cent for the public printing, which it requests its friends whether political or personal, wc do not know to publish. The de sign of the article is to explain the cause why the bid of one cent was made by the proprietor of that paper; and the only reason we can glean from the arti cle, for this strange movement, is that the law, "is vague and impracticable. Some of the bids being made "by tnc page, some by the 1000 m's, token, 6c.,, Consequently we do not think it would materially benefit any party for us to publish this said article. We have only to say it is very strange Col. Fall knew in what shape tho va rious bids were made, I e fore putting in his own, which we are to suppose was made in its peculiar form on account of the unintelligible character ot all the others; and we must at the same time express our surprise at the aeuten ,aa which enabled the Secretary of Slate to determine that Col. F II was the lowest bidder. Were the ot her bids so worded as to defeat any conclusion concerning their amount? And will a "liberal? Le gislature without sagacity to pass a law not "vague and impracticable,' remuner ate a man more liberally than he asks, or will they repeal die law, and elect that man public printer?. 7e should be loth to trust so much to a reed that miffht break. The idea is, however, to repudiate the law in relation to the public printing. Locofocoism is having another day, an 1 where its diabolical and destructive mea sures will cease, no one can toll. they refused positively to go into the hall. Thus the will of tho people, a majori ty of tho Legislature, and the law are ail unable to discharge the duties of the Legislature. Such conduct certainly meri's the deepest censure, and wo have no language to express our abhorrence 01 It. U must however prove injurious s to the party it isdes gned to benefit. It needs no comment. Every man is able to judge of such turpitude. INTERESTING CORREM'aVDKVCK. We cannot at present lay before our readers the correspondence which passed between Mr. Stevenson and LorJ Pal merston, just before the departure, of our English Ex-Minister from Europe, but in lieu thereof we give them below two letters of a different character, a little more amiable in expression and tone than we suppose were those of the two dis tinguished individuals mentioned above. These letters are not exactly suited to the present time, although but very few years have glided by since they clear, it will give tbe twelve members of the Tennessee tor gratulation. They aay some chance for acquittal, at tbe ! a m, mi mt ol their constituent, but In aope is justified by the present situation of ef fai rs.

The tour of the Prince do Joinville through the north and part of he west, has been marked by bestowal of honours, in the way of fetes, balls, din ners, fawnings, etc., equal in number and quality, almost to those shown Lafayette; and for what! What has the son of Louis Philippe done that Americans should almost fall down in adoration be fore him? Has he ever conferred any signal benefit on mankind ? Has he ever had opportunity lo do so? Has he nven evidence that he would have achieved any thing uncommonly brilliant, if cir cumstances had thrown him in situations to reap glory by the quantity ? On the contrary, with wealth unbounded at his command, with titles owned only by those who have had the fortune to be of king ly descent, it is not related that he ever relieved a poor sufferer of earth of any of the agony which wrings the hearts of millions. With his coffers filled to over flowing, we do not know that he has ever poured any of his treasure into the lean lap of poverty. We are yet unen lightened by any effort of the great in tellect with which he may be blessed. As commander, by favor of his royal an cestor, of a French frigate, he made a brave and manly attack on the fort San Juan de Ulloa, which has been, and doubt less will be again, excelled by hundreds of the untitled and unhonored scions who adorn the American Navjn And why, why should he reap honour and flattery from people so democratic so opposed to every thing savouring of nobility, as Americans? It is beeause tho Americans are not sincere in their democracy. The Governor oi Arkansas, Yell .. I ... .1.1 I ' I' I . Willi, ..l- i il LVJ J WJUIl I III, i It.
