His A correspondent of the Cincinnati 'onunercial, writing from JacJwon, Miiasippi, on the 9th lost., says: The inner cell ol the yuanl-houseoi" this at mi still holds the prisoner Ver ger. .During a clearing of the (.Vim, the other morning, I walki-d in the idle iutervul to ami fro ,a.st hia ailju- ent grave lor sucii it seemed, me January summer sun falling arouui dreamily illuminel the well-kept arms and uniforms ol the guards, aji'aring M-intillant here and therein M hroud distance of tin- camp. fSautiloriug 1 enjoyed the Iragranoe of a bunch of violetri, which the early spring of the South had brought, and wondering how much you ol the North, in vour frozen homes, would liave enjoyed the sight of the fuii-liiown japonietts I had that morning gathered iu the rectory Budea. Around me was the iwpet n-s .mil brightness of early summer: but through the cheery jieaee of the morning, I could hiir another step keeping gloomy and unconscious pace with mine, inside the cell, sounding like an echo. The sunlight shone in at the iron grating which served for his window, and the sharp outline mockingly i.tiiied in the brightness, seemed emphatic of his misfortune. Colonel Verger's appearance is strangely altered. His heavy mus tache and gatee, prominent by their blackness during his trial, have dis appeared, not les from nature's grief aud otre than from the absence of dye; and his lace is now covered with 8 growth of hair, gray and haggard, thaC has thinned his features and seeui ingly uoubled his age. .For Uf? pat six weeks Yerger has -i: relieved from his shackles ami handeutb by iiy, and he is now iron ed only during En night. He still bears himself as if unconscious of having done a wrong, lie altcs hi. cell, not defiant, yet unsubdued. Jle believes himself the victim ot adverse late a vicarious sacrifice whieh will not be without reward. With the episcopal clergyman who frt cuently visits him, and the Catholic priest whose consolations he has latterly sought, he is ever ready to converse upon religious topic.-, and it would not liyrprise his friends if heshould abjure the ji:h of his fathers for the sake of achievity- some additional notoriety, and uiinUttering to an egotism too in teuse for a maa Jo indulge iu ami yet be accounted sane, fiia leading in stinct now, as it bus been tor years, is Sun overmastering vanity and conceit. 2th , a- hereioiure, he believes t yn etf IBtied for, arid eininentiy deserv ing of, ihe highest oSiees iu the gift of the people, lie thinks that the sym pathies oi tiit whole i Hal i j are .i.'i hint, and it would not surprise him weie his prison di;;-r? to open and he were asked even to weiL1 a MOV n an(l den royal purple. oionei lerger amply consciMM 0f unfortunate accident, ol which Colone.'

He is, or not, according to our definition of insanity. Similar morbid manifestations .ire not un common here in the South among the higher classes. 1 know of a limiily of hign neial -landing, near here, VMM pa-sious are so uncontrollable that the ufl?u)ini, male and female, will, for a trifling misunderstanding, hurl knives at each oilier across tiie Uitiiier invle, and that in the presence ot strangers. A few days ago, a drunken, passionate man of weaith and po-iliun, living near Matches, catered the (iiniugroom where Jiis eider brother va silting with his friends, and deliberately shot him dead. Yerger has been known to whip his children with almost de moniacal bruiaiity. At other times he has raged w ith frantic outbursts of grief over their ttbkftM.

I . i I TO BE REORGANIZED. The United Slates Supreae Court Must Reverse its Lecis:on. The Washington correspondent ("X") of the Baltimore Gazette, writing on the 13th, says: The recent decision of the Supremo Court in relation to legal-tender notes is being made the pretext ben for uhlcing that tribuual under strict sub- ervuncy to l ongro-s l oaouowaiT the judgment of the Court was justified by precedents in analogous cases, in dependently of the general principles avowed in the opinion. If the Court erred at all, it was unquestionably in recognizing the law of Congress as forming nart and parcel of contracts entered into subsequent toils passage. It is admitted on all sides that, practi cally, the "decision " will have little, if aiiy, effect. Y'et, under these eir eumstances, the country is uravely and, by authority, told that the jttdy- ; nt M Oc reversed: Ami how . it is -i.uUsl here, in a journal care ful of its words, on the authority of Senator-, that the PreaMeaft has de eland that no man shall be put in the vacant seats upon the bench of the Supreme Court "irio it not pledged in odranee to unite tcith the duxening Judge in rerer.ting the decision iust rendered '' Is it the purpose, in this matter, of the present Executive and the majority in Congress to test to the utmost the forte.iraiiec of the people? is it not enough that Congress threat ens the Court, on the one hand, to de stroy its functions, and, on the other. by increasing the num ber. of judges, to subsidize its judgments? is the i country to be now iuformed that the i whole jurisprudence of the country, so far as it depends upon the judicial decisions of the Supreme Cour.t, is to : be submitted to unscrupulous partisan i "reconstruction ?" In the veiioiuont effort of the Chronicle io get Judo Strong con firmed, this point is distinctly made, and his decision or ipse dUil while on the Supreme bench iu Pennsylvania quoted in proof of his willingness to uset the decision ju-t made. Indeed, it i- " upon authonty"annouuced that both he and Mr. Bradley have pledged themselves "in advance" to Ofeu. Grant, not only upon this, but other specific points of law, long since thought to be well settled. It is, therefore, no longer a question wniucr.ie oup.eme un after to act as a ?onservative obstacle r to the encroachments ot federal au thority. The thiug is plain that it is to be used as an engi:e of further op pression, and as a mean ot wholesale peculation 1 Such a revelation ought to convulse lie- country but will it? The idea that any utau tit to be a Judge ot tic supreme Court would pledge iiim-ei:, 111 auvaiuv. upon a particular ptillit, -Ul'e to colli! oeiore mm lor an- ltldication (as the price of his appoint m.o), is sufficiently alarming. But what is the country to anticipate as to its liberties, or the peosteltl to fher jroH;rty or personal safely, when the purpose to exact such "pledtres" is ogdy 99 wed?
