Mr. Hamilton was elected to the Fortieth Con
btcbs as tbe successor of Hon. Jas. It. Hubbcll.
He was one of tbe most wealthy and influential
men in the county in which he lived, and was
especially known and loved tor his deep interest
in all benevolent enterprises and hta kindness
toward the poor of his neighborhood. Politi
cally be was a very thorough and Btncere Radi

his adherence thereto. He revved some time as
a member of the Htate IpiElaturc, in which he
was a contemporary of J urine Chase, and under
the Kdminintration of Mr. Lincoln be held an
important oflice in the revenue service. Ho was
about fifty jeais of age.
Madam Didlee,the Opera Ringer.
Madrid Correspondence London Advertiser, Dec. 8-
Tbe opera has rarely boasted of a more plea
cant singer or of a pleasanter woman than
JMriame Nantier Didiee, who has just died here
of a pulmouary complaint. Alas, poor laly!
it stems but jesterday that we sat entrnuced in
our fc'.all in the Oriente listening to her joyous,
spirit-stirring "tiauta Lucia;" the noble Neapo
litan ar which she introduced in the slujtnir
lesson in the liarbiere in lieu of that intenni
naole "Rode's air, with variations," in which
the proud contraos used to bewilder them
selves and their audience in intricacies of labo
Tious sonR. the was followed to the grave by
the director and all the troupe of tbo Oriente
Theatre, including Madame Peneo, who was
deeply affected at the loss of her friend. The
play bi lid ot the Oriente ate posted about in deep
Tiiouriiinp, from respect to the deceased; and
iladume l'cn' O bus t.btained a tew days' respite
lo mourn lor her beloved colleague.
Agriculture In Alabama.
At a plantation sale in Alabama recently, only
fifty cents were bid lor a cotton gin iu pood
order, rive cents each lor ploughs, and correa
poDdii k sums for other agricultural implements.
Mule an-t horses also brought very low prices.
The Mobile Times savs there is no doubt, trora
the general expression, that experienced planters
have abandoned the idea of larming on the old
extensive scale as impracticable, and the offer
ing of many larce plantations for rent, in quan
tities to sultmen of small raean, seems to con
firm this view. It is generally believed that free
labor is as cheap as slave labor; tbe chief
dinYrence brine that the labor cannot now be
controlled and directed so as to meet tbe real
exigencies of the larming season.
The Argus at Cheyenne thinks there baa
been discovered there an excellent material for
building, and says: "In digging the well for
the distributing post, under the charge of
Colonel Carling, a layer of composition, con
sisting of magnesia, lay and limestone is
found, which, mixed with lime, forms one of
the most durable, as wwtl as out) of the must
beautiful, materials for bouses."
