Smith, Sheriff of Onnsby Coantj, from a pistol shot woond inflicted npoa him by Tbomat Riley, a desperado whom he was at tempting to arrest for the crime of eboot inf Slike O'Grady at Empire, io this connty. Mr. Smith received thia mor tal wound aboat midnight of Thursday the 12th imt., and died on yesterday morning, abont three o'clock at llryer'f Marshall Honse, on the Virginia city road, to which place he went jott afier being woanded. The deceased wat a satire of GUmanton, New Hampshire, and became 43 year of age en the Iltb of February, 186T. No death which ha occurred in this connty eTer caaued m. mora profound sensation of sadness aad bereavement than this. Tbe cal amity is a great and irreparable one to the community : and tbe shock has fallen upon all with a moat painful and depressing influence. We know but little of Mr. Smith's earlier history ; bat he came here somewhat braised and scarred from a fearless aod manly con tact with the rougher and more trying vicissitudes of life than fall to the lot of the majority, but still reaolute, powerful aod cirrous to a degree that proved htm a martel of courage and physical endurance. Positive, outspoken and earless, he was a man who won strong aad admiring friendships and courted tba enmity of those to whom he op posed himself. We believe that every man, friend and enemy alike, respected bis honest bearing and unmistakable mealiness Since the coming into this State of tbe writer of this notice, Tim Htnita has been tbe champion and prac tical friend and supporter of the loyal cause in si greater and mora effective degree than any one maa in this part of the State. He bas died in tbe midst of hit usefulness, leaving wife and children to mourn the loss of a husband aad father upon whose strong arm they relied in well assured confidence for that protection and support which they so much needed. His death was serene ad calm. Abont two boars before he breathed hi last, Geo. Wilson told him of the hopelessness of his case. He was prepared for tbe awful change, and so declared himself. Calling bis family to his bedside, ho spoke to them with words of cheer, resignation and hope. His mind was clear and nndisturbed mp to tbo final moment. May peace be with htm t And may the bereaved ones ha hat left behind find comfort and con- aotatioa. Is availabilivy and a proven pa triotism of the most efficient description an sot to bo taken into accoant in the ponding ttrnggla to secure to the nation tbo fruits of tho war, then may there bo soma virtue aad wisdom in Charles Haaaaer'a criticisms of General Grant. Bat if tha wishes and predictions of the majority of loyalists ara to be coasultad, then will tha maa who didmore than aay other to maka the triumph of the Union causa a possibility ha chosen as tbo loader around whom shall rally the patriotic elements of the land. Grant eev.d to tho President, ' this is a country whore the voice of the people should be heeded." It would be well for Mr. Sumner to reflect opon tbe significance of that true saying. Respect for Mr. Sumner's political sentiments is to be awarded ; his judgement of motives, aaea aad things is too oftea chargeable with narrowness and impracticability While ha is better fitted, in aome res pects, fjr tha Senate thaa Grant, the 4 loo ere! is better calculated for tbe Presidential candidacy than ha possibly caa be. Indeed, if Great were not, as we conscientiously believe hint to be, ia etery way worthy the honor which Haioa men are so persistent shall be thrust o?oa him, his availability, com kiaed with tbe knowledge that be tt the friend of tbe country, would render hia nomination tbe best conclusion that could be arrived at as the asost promis ing preventive of a Copperhead saceess, aad tho coasequent surrender of tho reentry iata the hands of its known oasmies. A BLOODY CHATTOL , I Reckless crime and deed, of fatal violence seem to bar seasons of whole I ; sale enactment. One of these fearful periode appeaas to be the present. ! bile we are discussirg the painful oc- eurrence which bas made mourning and ' sadness in every house in our own ! little village, a lone; and horrible chap-, ter of not less bloody deeds comes to ns from the other side of tbe Sierras. Tbe dispatch from Sao Francisco which we! publish this morning contains a most ! shocking record. Murder, suicide and frightful wounding come to us like the sanguinary reports of a deadly battle. From all over tbe eontineat like state ments reach ns ; and amid them all are tbe heart sickening stories of starvation, destitution and death among the poor people of tbe South. Gloom and grief cover tbe land as with a pall ; and tbe heart yearns for the breaking of the lowering clouds of evil and the gleam ing of the sunshine of peace, tranquility and hope.

A Washing ton special reports a conversation between Sumner and three delcgrtes of the last coun cil of the Union League. Sumner denounced the conservative Republicans of Congress as the bane of the party. He said the great mistake of the party was the failure to im peach the President and pass the Political Rights bill. He considered Grant a good soldier and nothing more. He opposed the indorsing of him for a President-al candidate. New Yon a, December 16. A Herald's Washington special says severe distress is expected among the whites and negroes of the South during the winter. In many in stances starvation is actually at the door. Governor Humphreys of Mississippi has received such information of an intended outbreak among the negroes, in Januarv next, that he has deemed it necessary to is sue a proclamation of warning against such combinations.

The resolution passed by a strict party vote ; ayes 111 ; nys, 22. "The House then went into Committee of the Whole to consider the D ficiency Appro priation bill, and soon after adjourned.

Say tbe Washington Chronicle : The frauds under tbe internal revenue system since Andrew Johnson deserted the Union party surpass in magnitude all that was ever conceived, even in the most estravagant charges against War ren Hastings. They are said to amount hundreds of millions of dollars. Some estimates leave the distinct impression that in a single Congressional district certain combinations must have divided incredible snms, and these combinations are said to include high and low. The frauds bare displayed unparalleled in gennity and recklessness, and a recent instance could be mentioned where some two thousand barrels of whisky taken from a bonded warehouse were placed on board a veel for China, and when they reached China, were found to be filled with water This trii k, it is said, was recently perpetrated sue cessfully in Philadelphia.
