Some interest has been excited in the rae of Mrs Arniiuntou who died suddenly last week, and whose ap pearance was so life-like lhal her friends hesitated to bury her. Ilei body was how eve', after several days, placed in a tomb, where it was soon after visited, mid appearing to be more and more life-like, it was removed, and kept lor five days. At the end of that time, decomposition began in great rapidity, and there is no room to doubt that life was extinct before she was entombed. Prop. Jour. The Major Uenckal. It is rumored here, .md generally believed, that Franklin Pcarce, of New Hampshire, formerly in the United Slates Senate, to whom the office of Attorney (General of the United Stales was tendered last year by the President, and res pecilully declined, lias accepted the appoint ment of Major General in the Army, and, it is said, has gone borne to make the necessa ry arrangements of his departure lo Mexico.

The Mexican Preamble Whigs are charging lhat Mr IV Ik brought on ihe Mexican war; but ht says General Taylor In his Procla mation, issued soon af er the battle of Palo Alto aud Uesnca de la Palma, he says : " Our la'e iffrt to teroiiunto all difficulties by peaceful negotiation has been rejected by the Dictator Po-edes, and our Minister of Peace, whom your rulers had agreed to re ceive, has been refused a hearing. He has been t eared with indignity and PaogJes has ituiiooucecl th.it war ex i-ts between us "This War, Thus Eiist Proclaimed by him, has been acknowledged as au existing fact by out President and Congress, with perfect uuanimiiy, and will be prosecuted with vigor aud energy ngaiust your anny and rulers." The Federal leaders in North Carolina, and eNewhere, charge lhat the war was brought on by President Polk; whereas General Tay lor declares that it was 4-firt proclaimed by Paredes, the Dictator of Mexico. The differ ence between General Taylor and the Feder al leaders is this : He puis Mexico in the wrong, while they insist ihat the President of the United States, aud uot Mexico, is to Ida me for the war.

Mr S. has heretofore been a repiesenlative foin North CaroliQi, Araonf ihe wonders of the age which w e have around us at the time being, may justly be classed ihe ludia rubber or gum elastic goods manufactured according to ihe patents of thw celebrated Goodyear. It is rapidly dtiving cotton, woolen aud ilk cloths, and even iron, wood aud tin, out of use for many purposes. It is only within the last two years that Mr Goodyear has discovered the secret of preventing the gum from dissolving except at a g eat heal divesting it of its valuable qualities and rendering it not liable to tifTen in the cold; which, being done, he has accom plished all necessary to render ceilain its ad aptation to a great many uses uot before deemed possible. For seven long years he is said to have devoted -himself to practical experiments with this material, while his friends, fancying that he was frittering his life away in chase of a chimera, thought him next to a proper subject for the iusaue hospi tal. In the course of seven years he was im prisoned nine times by his creditors in New England. Raleigh Standard. A Catital Toast. At a late festival of the citizens of Stv Loui, Missouri, on the 15th ultimo, for the purpose of celebrating the lauding of Lielede and the founding nrihal city, we flud the following among the regular toasts drank on the occasion : 'Our Army ihe Volunteers and RsgU' lars: -Wilb Shields for defence; a lluller for supplies; a Ptlloxe for repose; and a Marshall for parade; may lh'y not lack Wool for com fort, Worth in battle, or a Garland for victory; never crying Quit man to Ihe foe, but laying their Twiggs on the enemy's back, pay pro mptly their .Scoff, or ckatgt as the Taylor al ways knows how."

McKay, to take to Ireland or Scotland, in the Macedonian, free of cost, whatever provisions or money ihey may choose to send in his charge. The committee allege, as the reason of this refusal, that "as the Macedonian was captured from the Briti-h during the hst war, they doubted the comtesv of sending such a vessel loaded with alms lo the British nation, especially as she is not rigged, and no appropriation has been made by Congress for the expenses of the voyage." The reason is no less singular than dictated by a too refined sense of pro priety. Presbytery of Fayettevillc.

Bradford Springs, S. C, March 13. Air. Editor : To prevent the publication of uy incorrect statement concerning the at tempted assassination of ihe Rev Dr DuBose, I send you ihe following, upon the cottect Uess of which you may rely. Respectfully yours, ISAAC AULD. At 12 -o'clock, on Wednesday ihe lUth inst., Rev. Mr J. A Backhouse, a Uuptiat Miniver, formeily priucipal of the Dalrng lu Male Academy, called at the Bradford Spring!., audi not tititling the Rev. Mr Du Bose at the dwelling house, walked towards the building used as a temporary School rooio; taking his horse with him; on his way thither he was met by Mr DuBose and myself, and returned in company with us. Mr DuBose received him kindly, and taking his horse led him towatds the hou-e, where we found Mr John Nettles and Col. Wm. iSVttles. After a few minutes conversation, M DuBose pro posed to Col. Nettles to walk out with him H look at some of his stock. During their walk about the premise:', Mr DuBose and Col. Nettles while passing the stable, observ ed Mr Backhouse within, where he had placed himself, as he afterwards acknowledged, with the hope of tiiidiug an opportunity of effecting his purpose. Mr Backhouse returned with; ibe'th toward the house, walking a Tew paces behiud. Just before they reached the house, Mr Backhouse stepped quickly between Col. Nellies and Mr DuBose, and placing himself in frot of the latter, stabbed him w ith a pock et knife. He struck twice, but only one blow took effect. 'J ho thiusts were well aimed for the heart ; but most providentially ihe knife struck against a rib and glanced, inflicting a painful but not a fatal wound. Mr Back house immediately attempted to escape, aud had neatly succeeded, but was seized just as he had mounted his horse. The kuifo with which he inflicted the wound was seen in his hand by Col. Nellies aud Mr DuBose, but could not be found aftei wards. We suppose lhathe must have thrown it away while runn ing towards his horse. I say nothing about the motive, as that will be a subject for judi cial investigation. H. & E. JT. liJIILlLY ARE now receiving rer st'rW.B.
