GENERAL SUMMARY.

Corporation v*. Jackson, Pawnbroker.—A *uit wn*
tried yeaterJny before Judge Hoffinnn, any* the N.Y.
Advertiier, on a complaint made by a poor colored
wonmn. She nwore that nhe left n brenat-pin nnd
counterpane in pnwn for aeveu ahillinga—that when
*he came to redeem, ten ahillinga were required; ahe
(•ititinlalnnl nf the elnirtfo. when it wna nffread to tnkc
nine shilling*; byl on receiving n i wo dollar hill, they
retained ten shilling*. Jackson's son wits brought i
forward, who testified directly opposite to the woman:
llis testimony was impeached by two witnesses. The
Jury, lifter an absence i»f about (wo minutes, came In
with a verdict for the Plaintiff—which imposes a floe
of $100 on ilia defendant.
Remarkable Death.—As Mr. Artemns lleminway, 1
of Pepperell, Mass. on Friday morning Inst (Oct. 5.)
was dipping some new cider out of the vnt, he was
slung by a yellow wnsp on the middle joint of the se
cond finger of his right hand. He cried out immedi
ately that he was in great pain, nnd n person who wn*
near came np and extracted the sling from the wound, i
His anguish increased so much, however, that he was
obliged to be led to hi* house, at n distance of nel
more than ten rods from the spot w here the accident
happened. A* soon ns he reached home he threw
Itintself on his bed, unable to support himself, appear
ing to have no local pain, but complnined of an uni
versal distress, ns lie expressed it. There was nei
ther sickness at the stomvich, nor spasm* of
any kind. He complained of an uneasiness in the
bowels for a few moments, and soon after his counts
mince brram* livid nnd he sunk Into a state of insen
sibility, and expired in less than twenty minute* from
the lime that he wn* stung. A physician was Instant
ly sent for and arrived in about half an hour after Mr.
Heminwny'sdonth, when the body was found to be in
such a state as made it inexpedient to examine It.

The Cobbler.—A eobler at Leyden, who used to at
tend the public disputations held it the academy, was
once asked if he understood Latin f “ No,” replied
the mechanic ; "but I know who is wrong in the ar
gument.'' “ How l" replied his friend. “ Why, by
seeing who is angry first.”
The Episcopal Convention of Now-Jersey, have
elected the Rev. Georg* Washington Duane, of Bos
ton, Bishop of that diocese.
An old man, by the name of Rleh'd Roberto, who
lived in Madison eouuty, was shot dead at Groenbaw'e
blacksmith’s shop, in Limestone county, Ala. on the

the three, was shot liy some unknown person, while
going home from this place, in July lust, an account of
which was then published. It is presumed that bad
, feelings have been since existing among the surviving
friends of the parlies. And these feelings have, per
haps, led to the uphnppy deed wo are now recording.
On the day ofth* late homicide, old Mr. Roberts was,
as nbov* slated, nt Greanhnw'* shop, walking about
the door in * stooping position, apparently hunting
for something—Lewi* rod* up, had a gun with him—

Wheeling Bnftk Robbery.— The Hagerstown Pres*
of Wednesday contalh* n report', tjmt the robbers woro
detected in the foliowing tnnuiter. The Cashier nud
others liioloitging to Ihe Bank, in searching for some
imres to discover the 'depredators, found a stamp of a
candle, rirouml which was wrapped it small piece of
paper, having on it the name of i merchant of Wheel
ing, to whom they immediately went and inquired
whether lie Had sold any cnndles on the night the
Bank was robbed, nnd to whom ho had sold them.—
The merchant told them that he had told candles to a
negro boy belonging to a certain tavern in the town,
whither they proceeded, and oil inquiry loarned thnt
the candles had been bought for tome gentlemen who
were then up stair*. They went up stairs nnd found
the gentlemen busily engaged in dividing the spoils.”
Ycrtordny afternoon, between 6 and 6

late Wm. W. Potter, was return ingwlth another young

O’CONNELL.
Daniel O’Conitoll linx great advantages
of person—‘he tins alt that appearance
which height and robust proportions inva
riably give to the orator, without being the
lenst corpulent or fleshy, without coming
under Cicero’s anathema against the '* vas
tus.” Ho has great girth of chest—and
standk firm as a rock ; his gestures are free,
bold and warm—his countensnce plays
with all lie utters—his mouth in particular
indicates with great felicity the passion of
the moment—frank in conciliation, bitter
in scorn. Indoed the shape of the lips is
rather a contradiction to the maulier traits
of the orator’s fine athletic person, it is so
pliable in character, so delicate in outline.
It indicates, according to the science of
physiognomy, n quick nnd even over quick
susceptibility. Eyes light, full, and dear:
the dark Brulu* • the throat nervous and
’ fiuelv shaped—always loft free in the loos*
enea neckloth *, a small nose, but with deef
1 set resolute nostrils, complete a very strik
ing and characteristic tout tnttmble. Well
‘I then, fonev the orator on his legs—six
' now for his voice I The Irith accent, it

' can’t escape into a corner of that ill-buill
house ana avoid St. Shut your ears-**ii
will croep into them I Yet he apeaks in il
much lower tone than most other speakers,
and in a much mellower key. As tb the
matter-^ho throws himself at once on the
strong bearing of the subject-^-he seises
the question by its comriton sense. Up
liko other lawyers, you never find him pry
ing into the little holes and corners, hig
gling his soul info the cranny of a question,
As was said of Lord Chatham, it is the onto
broad view he takes nnd insists upon, and
that that view should nllow him to be sc
i popular in the House of Cpmrhotis, lx t
striking proof how democrat!!: that assem
bly lies become. A wekk or two ago, on
Mr. Buxton’s motion for the emantipatiur
of slaves, Mr. O’Connell made an excel*

lic truth.
What is visionary to-dav is only declam
atory to-morrow, sensible the next day,
unanswerable the day after, and t truism
at last. But while taking this broad pop
ular vietr cf e question, while nervous end
often florid in language, O'Connell le not
a declamatory—net an Irish *P**h*r ,n
the English Homo. The horning flights
of that astonishing eloquence be exercises
over the multitude, he swam always efts

singularly clever speaker lectured him on
