Williams, in assuming to know better than the Governors of other Status, when the people of his balinick shall eat turkey and return thanks for t ie manifold bless ings of the past year, s made the prop er subject of a just rtiukc on tin- part of several of our Whi; contemporaries in the State. This I nn glad to see. What right! we wouH like to know, has Governor Willians thu; to disre gard, the opinions and wiriies of 27 other Governors not 32, as one paper has it the Mayor of Savannah anil other dignitaries in a matter that so closely touches the hearts of some of our citizens, and appeals to the stomachs of all ? What right has a Governor of Vermont to any opinion? What will Virginia say ? Won't die get hold of a stray proclamation return it with her protest or a mere set of resolutions nullifying tho whole proceeding and cheat us out of our turkey altogether ? Who knows ? For one ve feel a deep apprehension for the consequences, nnd hope some suflioiqnt action will be had in the matter. Simple fait won't an swer. Wc must not only talk turkey but the Gov. must bo made to walk tur key ! and there we shnll bo secure in our rights. Would it not be will to i i . q ,mlu 11,0 uov nt common law, fcr a , contempt of other Slates?

The Steamship Cambria arrived at Boston about three o'clock on Saturday morning. The palitical news from Eu- t rope is of no sort of consequence, ex . cent as politics may be hereafter affect ed by the enthusiastic reception of tho noble Hungarian Kossuth by the peo ple of England. Kossuth and family had accepted the invitation of the Ocean Steam Naviga tion Company of New York to come over in their steamer, the Washington, and was to sail from Southampton on the 14th. The Washington's day of sailing was on the 13th, but she stops one day, her illustrious passenger hav ing promised to attend the Hungarian and Polish Ball on the evening of the 13th. The European Times, in alluding to the impreifion made by KosiUlh in England says : " Kossuth ts certainly a great man. The fame which preceded him has not exaggerated his talent. His rpceciies in Hampshire this week are the most extraordinary efforts ever made by a foreigner to place the politics of a dis . v.--.... , ... tant country in au En-dish dress.

In the evening n croud of citizens assembled in front of the Ixmdoii 1 lines ofiice, which has been reckless in its attacks upon Kosiuth and made a bonfire uf several copies of that paper.

The " senior" of the mherst CNew IIamtihire1 Cabinet. speaking of the storm oi tho 27th ult., says : " The hills nronnd us are yet covered with it, and their heads ure as white as ours.

What recked he for sun dered ties or broken hearts 1 what cared he whether the summons found him with tho " wedding garment" on ? what cared he for mis-spent hours, or duties unperformed . worlds could not buy from him a moment's respite for repentance. "No reprieve !" was writ ten in his merciless eye. Upon many a lip since the rising sun, now red with the purple tide of life, should grow pale be foru him ere its setting. There sat thedesclato ones ! mute, lipnrttirnlf on Oi-nrlio.nl 1'iv I the lifeless form of the husband, brother and father. Strange feet were heard as they straightened him for the grnvo ; the servant was busy at the door, an swering inquiries, prompted partly by kindness, partly curiosity ; neighbors wero gazing from their windows, hoping some stray gust of wind would displace the envious blinds that battled all their curiosity ; and making various surmi ses as to tho future fate of those who, nursed in luxury, were now left to penury. Still, there sat the mourners, looking vacantly at each other ; unable yet to comprehend, in its length nnd breadth, their deep sorrow. Powerless to plan, move, or act, praying only to lie quietly down with the dead. There were rosy children, buspending their accustomed sports, creeping on tiptoo through the darkened rooms, chilled and awed by the breeding gloom, and the falling tcar of those they loved, shrinking timidly from the strange faces that met them in entry nnd hall, and wondering why they patted their heads so sorrowfully, nnd said " poor children !" Relatives and acquaintances came in to ofTer consola tion to the mournerc. Kvery text of Scripfire that had any bearing upon their case, and some (hat had not, wore sounded in their hearing ; but they fell upon the ear like empty sounds; they could only say, with tearful faces, "there in measnrcd tonci 6r the duty of rejig nntion J they listened n Ihongh they henrd not; ihey knew that with nil that had gone before, the wont was to come.
