Mv opponent, Mr. Speaker, persists in say
that he is entitled to the floor. Whether
t!;i«issoor not, I shall not inquire. All 1
juive cot to ssv is that whether he is entitled
to the floor or no:, he'll get floored if he inter
rupts me again. Here the gentleman from

Skitiv-ki Respited.—Blaise Skupinski,
;he young man who was to have been execut
ed last Friday in Philadelphia, has had his
sentence respited until ihe 31 of December.
T Some circuiusiaucts attending the re
spite of Biaise Skupinski w ill be read with in
re«t. It appears that a report wai put in cir
culation that Kaiser,or Rutkowski, had been
arretted at Easton, Pa., and the marshal sent
au otficer to that place,who ascertained that the
«<! rson suspected was a man who was arrest
ed some months ago, and discharged from cus
tody. The facts were sent to Gov. B'gler, who
lespited Blaise until the 3d of December. It
is generally supposed that the respite was ob
tained through trickery. The prisoner receiv
ed it as a thing confidently expected, and did
not express the emotion naturally to be ex
pected on sach an occasion. He did not even
express thanks to the sheriff until it was sug
gested to him by the priest, when he kissed his
13P Mary Verplank, daughter of Henry
Verplank, pilot on board the steamer Francis
Sk'wiciy, committed suicide in IVevv York last
Thursday, nnder the most melancholy circum
stances. It appears that the family had for
merly lived in Albany, and while there, the
deceased had been offered and had accepted, the
hand of a young man in marriage. He, how
ever, having recently become heir to a consi
derable for:'due, thought proper to break off the
engagement. This bo preyed upon the feelings
of the girl, that she sought consolation in the
poisoned cup.
Shooting.—On Monday last Mr. G. VV. A.
R ilue met with Mr. Benjamin Nosvlin of Ap
pomattox, at the depot in Lynchburg, and in
consequence of some previous difficulty, rais
ed nis cane to strike him, when Mr. Nowiin
drew a pistol and fired upon Mr. Raine, the
all taking effect just above Mr. R.'s knee.—
Mr. N. waa taken before the Mayor who dis
charged him, on the ground that he was acting
iri sell defence ; but from prudential considera
lions bound him over in the sum of $-"'OO to
keep the peace for twelve months.
Hard to Please.—The voters of Glynn

With three candidates in the field, the good

fi*" A negro man, in Petersburg, who
w-ent to the house of Dr. Nolluer, last Thurs
day night, for the purpose of stealing chick
ens, was shot by Dr. N.'s servant, who sup
poses he lodged twenty-five shot in the thief.
He was disguised in a woman s gown; but
t'ron the fact of dropping his hat, it is pre
sumed it must be a man.
Coal in Mississippi.—A bituminous tniae
r tl, resembling coal in every respect, easily
ignited, and giving out great heat and blaze,

Election Fruos.—A dispatch from Pitts
burg. Pn., is published in the papers, which
slates that disclosures have been made there
of election frauds, in which leading Whigs are
implicated. Naturalization, alleged to be frau
dulent, is the foundation of the charge.

L3P G. P. R. James is to deliver a funeral

vices of the Duke of Wellington, before the
British residents of Boston, next Wednesday.
Praiseworthy.—The Savannah Courier
states that the sum of $350 was collected at
the polls in that city last Tuesday, for the
Washington Monument. What does Rich
mond say to that?
French Diet.—The raising and fattening
of snails ha?, of late year.*, very much increas
ed in France, and, according to a recent calcu
lation made at one of the Paris Markets, the
amount consumed annually in France is about

Compulsory Enjoyment.—A gentleman
who frequented the circus, noticed a boy
among the audience who was soundly asleep
every time he happened in.
Curious to know why the urchin should
resort to such a place for somniferous purpo
ses, our friend went up one evening, and ac
costed him :
"My 1 ittle fellow, what do you go to sleep
for 1"
"I can't keep awake," rejoined the other;
"it is such a terrible bore to see them doing
the same things every night."
"But why do you come ?"
•'Oh! I can't help it; 1 must coine—Fve got
a season ticket."
