CORNELIA. From the New England Weekly Review. THE REV. ABEL BLISS. "Or the dcsolatian oj a widowed in 1753, The Rev. Abel Bliss Was pastor of a little Hock Some twenty miles from tins, Who lived a single life until The five of youth had fled— ar him And had no woman Save onn that made his bed. A sober revrend gentleman Full of Greek and Latin ; He always wore a powdered wig. And breeches ma. e of satin ; And seldom went abroad, except To fnimral and to wedding. And a the latter alwavs staid. At least un.il the bedding. Of course he was the object of The wiles of ev'ry spinster. And all the stories nf Hup <1 s arts Were practiced nn the min ster, But still he kept his single state, Unmov'd by their commotion. And passed the zenith of his life In acts of grave devotion. One hundred pounds a year His humble salary, And half of this lie always spent, In acts of charity— He lov'd to weep .

There was a splendid funeral, For he was rich, and Deacon -, And for each noble virtue, he Was a lighted beacon— The pious ah were there, for be Was e'er a friend of tliei- s, And every body else, because, Such funerals were scarce. His lonely widow in her weeds, Stood up beside the bier, And on his ashy brow she dropt Full many a scalding tear— And as they lowered him in the grave, And drew the curds apart, A pang of bitter anguish wrung Her desolated heart, di sob hurst from her lips, As dust was shovelled in— Ami Rev.

Record. The Superior Court terminated its session last Friday, Judge Peters presiding. Norman Baker was indicted for an assault upon Lewis N. Nash, a deputy sheriff, with intent to kill. Nash having a warrant against Baker went to his house, and arrested him. Baker drew from his pocket a pistol loaded with two slogs, presented it to the breast of Mr. Nash and snapped it. Another pistol loaded in the same manner was afterwards found upon him. The charge was fully proved; Imt as Baker had made some important disclosure since his commitment, by means which the chiet of a gang of villains, who have infested this country for many years, has been detected and sent to the state the Court sentenced him to confinement in prison, the State Prison only twenty years. The case of Isaac Bishop, of Darien, excited touch interest. He was first arranged and tried upon the charge of adultery with Nancy Weed, the wife of James B. Weed—found guilty, and senten ced to the State Prison for five years. Indictments were found against hint by the Grand Jury, for poisoning the wells of Joseph Smith of New Canaan, and Holly Bell and Thaddens Hoyt of Darien, with arsenic ; and sentenced to State Prison for life. Bishop was aman of property, estimated at from eight to ten thousand dollars, and had heretofore been a man of respectability. He held the office of constable of the town of Stamford for many years. James B. Weed, the husband of Nancy, had com menced an action against him for the seduction of his wife, in which he recovered, before the county court, §2500 damages. Bishop removed it Uy ap peal to the Superior Court, where it is now pend ing. In this suite all his real estate had been at tached. The individuals whose wells had been poisoned, had also commenced suits for the recov ery of damages, on which his property was attach ed, and which was also pending. During the term of his imprisonment in the Goal in this village, he had frequently expressed his de termination not to be removed to ihe State Prison ; and had written to Mr. Weed, his paramour to pre pare his grave clothes. She arrived in town dur ing the sitting of court, and on Sunday found means to deliver to him a shroud. The sheriff had made his arrangements to transport him together with Ihe other convicts to the State Prison on Monday mor ning, which was known to Bishop. But on the opening of the Goal on that Morning, he was found in great agony. He had taken a large quantity ot Opium on Sunday, as he stated, about five o'clock in the. afternoon. The account he gave ot the quan tity he had taken and the mode he obtained it, were quite unsatisfactory. His statement was, that he purchased a quarter of a pound in New York about two months ago ; that he had used it habitually in small quantities 8ince ; and that he took all he had on hand, which was a piece hut little larger than a pea. To his physical! he said he took an ounce. He lingered until yesterday morning when he died. A letter directed to the Sheriff was found in his shroud, of which the following is a copy. Danbury, Oct. 4, 1828. Sheriff Starr. —Sir—It is my tequest to you sir, should 1 die in goal, to have you cause my coffin to be made of good materials, in a decent manner, and my body placed therein, and forwarded to Darien to my oïvn house, where I would wish to be buried in my own burying ground, the north side where my mother is buried, and mv Executor will pay you for the same, or Nancy Weed.
