T A.t Wrdawiay Mtraiig, April T» lU'i, TRIAL OF WORMLEY. On Monday Meaera. Scott and Taylor,coon ael for Wormley, occupied the day in closing addressej to the jury, and 11 olden Rhodes rose for the Commonwealth, hut owiog to illne*s« adjourned hie remarks over until yesterday, when, notwithstanding severe indisposition, lie deliveied a very lengthy argument, closing about noon. The case wu then submitted to the jury, who retired, and after as abseuce of about eight mi nute*, returned with « verdict of " Guilty of murder in the Jint degree." Exception wn« thereupon made to the verdict by the counsel for prisoner. THE WHEELING BRIDGE. The Wheeling Bridge case is exciting a good deal of attention, and it i* to be hoped it will receive from Cougress the consideration it is entitled to. The case may be briefly stated thus : A biidge, authorised by Virginia and Ohio, from the shore of one to the shore of the other of these Stales, is built, according to the re quirements as to height above water, &c., as they deem proper. That height put the bridge out of the reach of the chimnies of any steam boat then navigating the Ohio river. Sepett boats were either afterwards built with chitriniea high enough to touch the bridge, at hrgh weter, or had their chimnies lengthened to produce the same result. Pennsylvania, instigated by Pittsburg, and the part of the State thereabout, excited by a feeling ofhostility to Wheeling, and the im provement located there, institutes a suit against the Bridge Company, in the Supreme Court of the United States. The decision of the court our readers know. Chief Justice Taney, ahd Judge Daniel, of this city, gave opinions adverse to tfial of the majority of the court, and these opinions ore remarkublv clear and conclusive in their authorities and argu ments. They do full justice to the sovereignty of the State authority in the premises. But the decision of the court declared the bridge an obstruction to navigation, and the magnificent structure, costing $200,000, would have fallen at once before the neighbor hood jealousy which induced the suit, but for the motion of 31 r. Johnson, of Md., counsel fur the Bridge Company, to appoint a committee to enquire whether tt draw might not be made to allow of the passage of the seven bonis.— (Godsave their chiainies !) This motion gave a little breathing tune, and in this breathing time it is to be hoped Congress will interpose, and by declaring the bridge a public highway, preserve it from destruction. In our opinion, it is a very foolish thing in Pennsylvania to press this war upon the bridge to gratify so small a part of her popula tion as dwell in and around Pittsburg! Ohio (which has a larger interest in the navigation of the Ohio river than any other Stato) and Virginia are foster parents to the noble work of art, and their authority having permitted its construction, it caunot but be considered un der their protection. Their permission, with the conditions annexe J, (which were literally complied with,) induced a company of enter prising men to invest a large sum of money in a work, which was for the public convenience of an immense population in both States—nay, of people all over the Union—and they would be recreunt to their duty to their own sovereign powers, as well us treacherous to the compa ny, which proceeded by their authority, not to interpose in some manner to save the grand work from destruction, and the company from ruin. They, therefore, must stand in the rela tion of proteetors of the company ; and Penn •ylvania is but warring against them, and ex citing bad feeling towards herself from them,by her course. Unwise at any time, it is ex tremely impolitic now, that that State wants friends. •We shall see whe.her Congress will inter fere—we shall see whether a grand national work has to fall a sacrifice to seven steam boats with very tall chiinnies—we shall see whether the sovereign authority of two of the greatest 3utes in the Union is to be nullified for the jealousy of a little neighborhood and •even smoke funnels—and whether thus, and for this, the public convenience and the nation al commerce are to be immeasurably injured by the destruction of a uational highway. THOMAS MOORE-THE POET. The daath of the venerable Thomas Moore —after he had lost all his faculties—recalls many incidents which cannot fail to be of in terest to the people of Virginia, in general, and to us of Richmond, in particular. It is known to some of our citizens, still alive, that he was here in 1807, and we fancy there are some left who even recollect him personally. He abused «s all, as every person who has read his diary knows, outrageously, yet, as well as we recol lect, he did not give it to us quite so hard as he did to our cousius dowu in Norfolk. To be sure hs said that there were only two gentle men in our town; one of them was old Judge Marshall, and the other Mr. John Wickham. But when he came upon our cousins in Nor folk, he hit them another sort of crack to that. The lact is he hit them over the head with a billiard cue. He »»«d they had nothing in their lowu but "dogs, democrats and negroee." How now! If our friend Cunning ham, of the Bea con, (who belongs almost as much here as he there,) should see this, we have no 4s«bt be will get a copy of Moore's works at oaoe.aud search out the passage. Well, when be is done, if he does not admit that the bard fives him a harder rap than ho does us, theu we give it op. By-the-bye, it was said that he wrote his famous "Mary, 1 believed thee true," mt Norfolk, and that the person who has thus beeu immortal was a lady attached to the Mage, still living in this country. With all bis abuse of our country, however, we yet cannot but feel a great tenderness for Moore's memory. With all his worship of the great, probably derived as much from early as sociation as any thing else, be was • whig— to English whig—and a strong friend of human rights and human freedom. Lord Byron was, •o doubt, right whsn, with tfcs instinct of &• true poet, be Mid that Moore would live in hi* national ballad* when everything ebe he had written should hare been forgotten. He cer tainly has been the grea'est of all lyric poeta in modern tinea, with the exception alone of Burn*. It is of him, aa a poet alone, that we •peak, not aa a politician, or a man of the world. THE DAUGHTER OF GEN. MOUTON DUVERNET. In, the will of Napoleon, "the uncle," we find y paragraph in favor of the daughter of Gen. Mouton Duvernet. He bequeathe her, we think, one hundred thousand (rancs. She was a little girl at the time ef her father's death, probably not more than four or fire years old. The case of Mouton Duvernet, we think, was one of the most melancholy in all history. He was a young French General—had been promoted during the wars that followed the great revolution—and when Napoleon returned from the Island of Elba he rejoined him. Ney and Labedoyere were shot in 1815. Mouton Duvernet was notcaveht until 1816. He was then brought out uud shot. The peculiar hardship of his case affected even the iron nerves of Napoleon. He felt for the yoang mother and the infant child, both rendered everlastingly nnbappy by a single despotic act. Even on the rock of St- Helena, while he wus dying by the most cruel of ull possible deaths, he thought of the little girl of his brave young General, und he bequeathed her one hundred thousand francs. This bus always been, to us, strong presumptive evidence that Napoleon was not so bad a man as he has been said to be. At least he possessed the strong Corsican characteristic of never forgetting any man who had done him a favor. This, however, was not what we designed to enter upon when we commenced this urticle. Since Louis Napoleon.has been " restored," he seeing to have been "restoring" every one who ever had any connection with the Empire. Vet we have never seen any account of his having interested himself in favor of Mouton Dufernct's daughter ? She must be now an old woman, for her father was shot in Nov. ISIG. Who is she? What is her name? Has she ever been mar ried ? Why is it, that even for the sake of her brave young father, murdered in the very prime of iiis existence, she has never been mentioned among the recipients of Louis Napoleon's boun ty ? We regard her history as a deep tragedy— one of the deepest in either romance or story. Yet while all others, vi ho either by themselves, or through the influence of their ancestors, hr.d any connection with the Empire, have had their reward, this person, whose position was so affecting as to attract the attention even of Napoleon when dying at St. Helena, has fal len into such humble obscurity, that she has not even been thought of. Fatal Accident.—On Sunday lastayoung man, living at Gordonsville, Orange county, named B. L. Woolfolk, aged about 22 years, cume to his death while running a small truck car over the end of u turn out. As it neared the end the wheels of the car ran against some impediment, causing the cur to capsize and roll down the bank, a distance of seven feet, carrying Woolfolk with it, and finally fulling upon him. Dr. Grimes was immediately sent for, hut found that a bloodvessel had been bro ken iu Woolfolk's breast, and could render no relief. He was sensible up to the time of his death, which took place two hours and a hall after the accident. He was a young man gen erally beloved throughout the community. Be ing a member of the Masonic order, a goodly number of whom met the corpse at Louisa C. H., where it was brought by the Central Rail Road cars, yesterday, and from thence con veyed to the Green Spring neighborhood for interment.

The Graft G«VJ-aTale ia two Caatta.—We have received from A. Morris copies of thta somewhat proay poem, written by James Wright Simmons. — There appears to be a very frothy and verbose mixture of Orientalisms, modem polities and cus tom* and explanatory notes —although the preiace states that the psges of the work introduce, in her original and appropriate character of heroine, 'aGreek maiden of gentle birth but parentieas, whom the casualties of Eastern warfare had re duced to the condition of a Mohammedan slave.— The flowing drapery of the "Greek Slave" may conceal tome very pungent and eloquent troths, but we confess tnem hard to find, unless some "Cantos" yet unborn will appear as the sun to il lume the plethoric darkness that enshrouds them iu this work. Appended are short poems of some merit Published by James Monroe «fc Co., Boston, and for sale by A. Morris, No. 49 Main street. The House on the Ruck.—This is a book ior youth.

Hue was a missionary of ihe Catholic Church, and at tended by his assistant, M. Gabet, made h journey through the countries named, that was beset with difficulties, hardships and dangers of a very start ling nature, and which he has very faithfully de tailed in bis highly readable and instructive work. Ha has added very much to the knowledge of the countries of whiek he writes, and of a track of territory perhaps never before trodden by a Euro pean. We are indebted to Mt;ssrs. Nash & Woodhouse for a copy of this work. Agricultural Books—Messrs. Nash & Woodhouse hive sent us ihe following agricultural publications f om the press of C. M. Saxton, agricultural book publisher of New York': Rural Agriculture, by C.F. Allen.—This is a very valuable 'oook for the Farmer. It describes in de tail Farm Houses, Cottage* and outbuildings—giv ing plans of ground as well as houses, and present ing the best method of con ducting water into cat tle yards and houses. Saxton's R iral Hand-Books.—These consist of four, viz: '-The Hive and the Honey Be j ;" •'Do mestic Fowl and ornamental Poultry;'' "Horses, their varieties, breeding, and management in health and disease:" and "The Hog, its origin and vaiieties aud treatment in disease."' Thuse books are all written by H. D. Richardson, a name of considera ble standing in England as the author of Agricul tural works aud essays. Saxton has done a public service in transferring his books to American print SwtNDLE3 Abbestkd. —In our papT of Monday, under the head of the latest news, we gave an ac count of the notorious David T. Pines alias Colonel J. Preston Floyd, arrested at Charleston on the charge of swindling Albert G. Wood, of Indianolo, Texas. This villain was very recently in this city. It appears that while in N. O. he got out of mo ney, and becoming acquainted with Wood, suc ceeded, alter fraudulently representing that he was brother to the Ex-governor Floyd, of this State, and that he had money in the banks here, la obtaining from Wood a gold watch ana &>ls in gold coin — As Wood was coming North, a part of the agree ment was, that he should accompany Pines mltiu Floyd, to Hichmond, where the money lent would be returned. Upon arriving here tha twain stopped at the Clifton House ; this was in the beginning of last week. In the evening of the day that they ar rived here, Pines stated to Wood that he wanted to go and call jon Governor Johnson at his levee, and left the boarding house; soon after, during Wood's absence, obtained his baggage. Wood, up* on heariug of sadden removal, immediately suspected him of fraud, and got out a search war rant through Alderman Rileigh, for him. Officers Pierce and Johnson, and one or two watchmen, ac cordingly visited all the hotels and boarding houses in the city, without hearing anything of the default er, until on arriving at Mrs. Montague's boarding house, Shry learned that he had been there, but had left the city in the Petersburg cars. Mr. Wood followed him as soon as possible, at.d succeeded af ter a long and hot chase, in arresting Pines at Chaileston, as we have already stated. He will' of course, meet with his deserts at the hands of the law. Richmond College —We have several times commended to the liberality ot our readers, the ef fort now beir.g made to endow this Institution. It sifords us pleasure to state that the agent, Rev. A M. Poindexter, has been quite successful in obtain ing contributions. He is now about to leave the city for a time, to proeecutc the object in the coun try. He requests us to state that near §38 000 hive been olt lined of our citizens: aud he has no doubt the amount will ultimately reach to $40,000 or more. There are still many citizens whom he has been unable to see, who may be expected, when called upon, to aid in the endowment. The agent feels grateful for the liberal and courteous recep tion with which he has met in Richmond. <""uabgb or Stealing —The continued case of James B Littlepsge, charge I by Albert Monroe, with obtaining goods and mnnirs belonging to Mon roe, fraudulently, came up in due order on yester. day before the Mayor. Witnesses proved that Lit tlepage had received money under the firm of Mon - roe St Littlepage, and therefore not for himself also that the goods alleged by Monroe to have been 1 stolen from him, had been taken out of Monroe's house by Littlepsge, in order to avoid their seizure for rent, by Poitisu* Robinson. They had been stored with a Mr. Jackson for safe keeping. The Mayor accordingly dismissed the complaint.

Macaixisteb's Entertaiismknti. —We were much gratified, Monday evening, in witnessing the ingenious and really wonderful feats of Macallister during his entertainment at the theatre. The per formance consisted entirely of mechanical, chem ical, scientific and philosophic experiments, which mav be witnessed by all classes without infringing, in the slightest degree, upon their social or moral feelings of propriety. The two mechanical phe nomena of the Chinese gentleman and lady, the former furnishing eonfeciions, and the latter choice liquids at command; and the automaton Harlequin, vrith his whistle, grimaces and pipe, are as mirih pruvoking in their performances aa extraordinary and amusing. The juveniles in particular, will te filled with delight on witnessing Macalliater's ex periments, whose refined wit and courteous de portment add greatly to the interest ot the enter tainments. Showers of confections and freshly-cull ed boquels fall during the evening. Stealing.—A young m»a named William II Brummell was caught Monday evening, while in the act of stealing a mat lying in front of Dr. llhx all's door. The raat was only worth twenty-five cents, and the Doctor would have let Brummell off, if it had not been for his insulting couduct toward* him. The boy alleged that he liad been drinking and took up the mat to raise a bit of a spree. Sute enough he raised one, the result of which is, that he has been committed to jail to await examination at the Grand Jury term of the Huntings Court, on the 10th of May next. Rkcovebino —'Ihe youth named Stout, who was recently run over on Mayo's Bridge by a bread cart and had his skull fractured, astonishing to«'>y is likely to recover. His physicians, D'rs Far ker and Bolton, performed an operation on hi* situll, taking therefrom a piece two inches in length by one and a quarter in width. If the boy regains his health, ir wdl indeed be a remarkable triumph in the art of surgery. CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE. Communication for Jefferson Ward. —It is with a degree ot pleasure that the undrr signed sees *he name of Wm. TAYLOR, brought out in the ticket for Alderman. The selection ol that gentleman, although made late, should have deservedly been made before; but still, by all ac counts, will meet yet, the full approbation oi many voters. Mr. Taylor is favorably and extensively known to bo a man of regular business habits, well qualified in every respect for such an office, aud in addition to the general information and capacity he possesses, his location being so convenient near the Old Market; always at his store or counting room. Olten persons are compelled to walk up and down the streets to find a Justice of the Peace, in cases ol emergency. If elected, Mr. Taylor will, no doubt, perforin the duties promptly and faith fully, con equently is truly worthy of support, par ticularly as a ready, efficient city Alagistrate; is frequently wanting in that section, therefore his election would not only be the result to have mat ters speedily attended to in Jetierson Ward, but would also be of great convenience to the country people generally coming to the Old Market, who wi-h often official acts to be done by Magistrates. Exclusive of the fact that the citizens of Richmond generally are interested in the pn,moiion ol good order and justice, to be distributed without delay, equallyand equitably to every man. ap7—lt* AN OLD OBSERVER. lb® Disputcb.—The office of Grain Mt asurer, for the port of Richmond, is to be til ed to day for 12 months. It is uu office of groat im portance to a large class ot citizens, to wit: the grain raisers, who are i ften limes at the entire mercy of bad men as captains of vessels and shippers, of whom, it is but lair to presume, there are some. Now. if with a dishonest officer of th« city (a collusion is had,) where is the safety of that val uable class of citizens I have above alluded to? is it iu his factor» 1 fear they are not of that vigi lant class of men who look more after their con signor's business than their own. The entire con trol is often left to the officer, and it is ktiowu there are aspirauts to this office who wauld blush to be told, that for their acts of honesty..they were to be rewarded with this office. You hare, however hoar st aspirauts for the office. Will you not, then! tellow citizens, select such? Who ha* ever hea d of an insinuation of dishonesty against the Rev.
