KsNirdsj Morning, December 4, 1 Ss'2.
We paid a visit to the room of the Historical
Society, on Thursday last, for the purpose of
seeing this work, which has justly excited
much admiration among those who claim to
be connoisseurs. To this honorable appella
tion we make no claim whatever, being igno
rant even of the terms ofart. The bust strui k
us as that of a very beautiful woman, the fea
tures being purely Grecian, and their expres
sion uncommonly sweet anil placid. The
sculptor doubtless worked at it con amore, as
it was, perhaps, his ideal of perfect beauty.—
T.ie only fault we could find with it was, that
it did not, in our opinion, bsar sufficient marks
of being the representation whieh it is de
signed to be, there being no reason why it
should be the bust of Psyche, any more than
that of any other beautiful female.
The allegery of Psyche and Cupid, is the
most beautiful of all that Greciun genius has
left us, and it is so palpable that there can b«
no mistaking it. Venus (sensual love) becomes
jealous of Pysche (the scut) on account of her
beauty, and commits her to Cupid for desec ra
tion. But the immortal beauty of the intend
ed victim, entrances even the God of Love
himself. In a fit of caprice, he afterwards de
serted her, and she, wandering all over the
world in search of him, came at last to the pal
ace of Venus, where she was enslaved, and
treated with brutal severity. Released at lust
by Cupid, Venus becomes reconciled to her,
she mariies her lover, and becoming immortal,
forever after enjoys his society. She is evi
dently the human soul, purified from human
passions, and thus prepared to enjoy eternal
bliss. A 8 emblematical of the mortal putting
on immortality, she is generally represented
with the wings of a butterfly.
We understand that Mr. Gait is a native of
Norfolk, and thai he is now in Italy, where he
has been engaged on a statue of Columbus,
and a Bacchante, both of which have been I e
spoken by 1113 countrymen. It is suggested
by a writer in the Whig, that he be employed
to execute the statue of Jefferson, which will
be roted for by the present Legislature. The
selection, doubtless, would be an excellent one.
Grand Chinese Festival.—-The Chinese
in California frequently treat the unsophistica
ted Americans of that earlhly paradise te rare
sights and strange sounds. They recently pa
raded in San Francisco to visit the cemetery
w here their dead lie interred, and, from ac
counts given, we shouldjudge that they tried
their best to "wake 'em up" from their long
slumber. The upper ten, in yellow silk un
mentionables, r:de in carriages in front, while
the more common people brought up the rear
on horseback. The music is described as par
ticularly awful. The Land struck up the
Kwang sei march, with the Yysingtu varia
tions. Physical force was energetically and
incessantly applied to the gong, cymbals
drums and 3tringed instruments, until the
very heavena tesounded with the frightful dis
cord. Not a dog or an unbroken horse could
be found within six squares of the procession.
An avalanche in the Alps, double distilled pa
tent thunder, or a dozen grizzlies in a cane
break, does not even give an approximating
idea of the nature of the noise. Such are some
of the beautiful characteristics of Sail Fran
cisco. They are, no doubt, pleasant interludes
to the oft repeated scenes of robbery und mur
Execution ok Lecoi/nt.—Henry Lecount
was hung in the prison-yard at Cincinnati, on
the 26th ult., fjr the murder of Mr. Clinch, in
a drunken brawl. The criminal expressed his
belief, a few moments before death, that his
sins had been forgiven ; that lie bore ill will
to no one, and that he was prepared for hea
ven. The Cincinnati Gazette gives the fol
lowing description of Lecount and his last
hoHrs :
The criminal was forty-seven years of age,
end left a wife and six children the inheritance
of his ignominy. He attributed his crimes,
disgrace, and felon's end, to that bane of man
—strong drink—which fired a fierce, ungov
ernable temper. The following touching seen#
transpired in prison the day before Lecount'e
execution: His wife visited him yesterday
afternoon, and the scone of their meeting was
extremely affecting—3o much so, that even the
stern check of the guard sparkled with a tear.
They conversed for a considerable time, em
braced, and when she was about to leave, after
having bid him the lust furewell, and taking
the last look upon the face of the choice of her
heart, he frantically culled her back, crying,
"Pray for me!" Both the wife and brother
stood mute, when Lecount threw himself upon
his knees, saying,"! will prav for you." He
gave forth his thoughts—aske'd the blessing of
heaven upon his wife and children, his mother,
and his brothers, and added, "My God, keep
them from an end like mine." Mrs. L. is a
plain, small woman, of quiet and unassuming
manners, worn down by grief. After haviilg
completed his prayer, he bid his wife and
brother farewell, saying, "Give my love to mv
children,'' and seizing Mr. Baumgartner, (as
sistant jailer,) by the hand, said, "II I had been
treated by ail men, Joe, as 1 have been treated
by you,l would never have been here. The
world has used me roughly. May you al
ways be happy."
Railroads is Prussia.—According to a re
cent return of railway truffle in Prussia, it ap- 1
pears that the number of persons conveyed
by the Pruss an railroads in 1851, waa 9,901,-
•81. Of this immense number only one per
bon was killed, who might be siid to have kill
ed himself, for he jumped from the train while
in motion—an expeiiment which few would re
-1 eat and only four were wounded. By acci
dents on the line to persons not passengers
four were killed, and three injured; they were
all crossing the rails contrary to the regula
tions, in front of advancing trains. The acci
dent. to employe» and labo.ers on the lines
•nd at the stations were more numerous. Un
der this head there are eighteen killed and
twenty woundej.
We are positive that such a favorable return
of railroad accident* could not be made in our
own country.
Bouth Carolina S*natok.—Judge Evan«
wu elected lo the U. 3. Senate, for the long
term, by the Legislature of South Carolina, on
the Ist io»t.
Death or Mr. Booth.—We announced
yesterday, under our telegraphic head, th«
death of Junius Brutus Booth; The event
took place on board the steamer J S. Cheno
worth, on her passage from New Orleans to
Cincinnati. On the arrival of the boat at the
lstter place, the body was placed in a metallic
coffin, to be forwarded to the family of the
deceased, in Baltimore. He reached New Or
leans from California, where he fulfilled a suc
cessful and profitable engagement bnt a few
weeks since.
Junius Brutus Booth was born in London,
May Ist, 1796. He appeared on the stage in
London in 1811, in opposition to Kean, till he
was driven from the stage by riot. Soon after
this he came to America, where he made his
first appearance in 1821, in Petersburg, in the
character of Richard 111. The next yearhe
came out at the Park Theatre, New ork.—
From that time to the period of his death, he
has been on the American stage ; and though
his eccentric habits and personal faults have
rendered his fortunes variable, the patrons of
the drama have always been willing to award
high praise to " Old Booth." In the language
of a contemporary, "his acting had a stamp
of enthusiastic roality which remained even
after age and the 1 upsand downs' of life had,
in a measure, broken him down."
Copper Mines in Tennessee.—Each suc
ceeding year develops fresh indications of the
vast mineral wealth of the South. There is
nothing of value or utility that has not been
bestowed upon her by the hand of nature. It
is, however, a humiliating reflection that the
most valuable sources of wealih in the South
are appropriated by capitalists from abroad.—
In Polk county, Tennessee, about five miles
from the State lines of North Carolina and
Georgia, there is a rich vein of copper which
runs longitudinally, in a series of hills (a spur
of the Alleghany mountains,) in a northeast
and southwest direction. The ore is princi*
pally black oxide ofcopper, yielding, it is said,
from ten to seventy per cent, of pure metal.—
The annexed description is copied from the
Dalton Times:
The black oxide is found at a distance of
about forty feet from the surface, the vein here
being fifteen wide, on an average. Below the
stratum of black oxide, the vein gradually in
creases in width, as you go down, and produces
yellow sulphuret of copper. Several hundred
tons have already been takeß out of the mine.
The company is constructing a plank road
from the mine down the bank of the Oconee
river, to Cleveland. So soon as this is com
pleted the amount sent forward to market will
be largely increased. This mine is worked by
a company from the city of New York. The
mining operations are under the supervision of
an able minerfrom Cornwall. We understand
he has had much experience in the mines of
Mexico, Cuba, Cornwall, and the United
States, and pronounces the prospects here to
be equal, if not superior, to any he has ever
before seen.
Senator Borland.—ln giving a sketch of
Arkansas senators, a short time since, the New
York Hera.d stated ibat Senator Borland wa«
a native of the South; whereupon, a corres
pondent of the Herald located his birth-place
in Orange county, New York. This statement
has called out another from Mr, John B. Ben
ton, of New York, who says that he and Sena
tor Borland were boys together, and that Sena
tor Borland was certainly born inNansemond
county, Virginia. This is undoubtedly true.—
We hope th« nativity question is now settled.
Not Fond of Freedom.—A man named
Henry P. Kyle, who had been confined in the
penitentiary of Kentucky for manslaughter,
was, a few days since, pardoned by the Go
vernor. He immediately took the cars for
Louisville, and on the way duwn was detected
in an efl'ort to steal a gold watch from an artist
of New Voik. Henry was arrested and sent to
jail. The pure air of liberty was too much
for him.
Proposed Railroad Link.—The citizens
of Fredericksburg held a meeting last Wednes
day night, for the purpose of consulting upon
a scheme to connect the Richmond and Fred
ericksburg Railroad with the Orange and Alex
anJria, at a point near to the Manassas Gap.—
A resolution was adopted appointing a com
mittee to confer with the officers of the R.. F.
and P. Railroad Company, to obtain all ne
cessary information regarding the proposed
scheme, and to report at a subsequent meet
ing. Speeches were made by Col. Hunton, of
Prince William ; D. Jasper, Esq., of the same
county; J.P.Phillips, Esq., of Fauquier; Dr.
Mason, of" Falmouth, and several genilemeu of
Distressing Accident.—We learn from
the Lynchburg Virginian of Wednesday, that
William, an interesting little boy of five years
of age, son of John and Martha Revely, came
suddenly to his death, Tuesday morning, un
der painful circumstances. On the evening
before, being near the fire, his clothes caught
and before the flames could be extinguished, he
was so much burned that he lingered but a
few hours, when death relieved him of his in
tense suffering and pain.
Contested Seat.—Mr. Merriwether's seat
iu the United States Senate is contested by
Hon. Archibald Dixon, who was elected by the
Legislature of Kentucky to fill the vacancy
•ccasioued by the death of Mr. Clay. Mr.
Mernwether holds his appointment from the
Governor. The decision of the case by the
Senate will form an interesting precedent.

Mr. Isbell offered the following resolution,
which, undpr the rule?, lies over one day:
Resolved by the General Assembly, That

Bishop Doane's Case.—The Episcopal
Convention of New Jersey met at Burlington
on the Ist inst., when the committee appointed
to investigate the charges against Bishop
Doane mau'e a lengthy report, which went on
to s»v that they had investigated said charges
and find them false in every particular, and
believe he is an honest, virtuous and sober
man. His habits are temperate, and they be
lieve that he was never intoxicated, as alleged
by some persons. His cellars were stocked
with wines and liquors, but not too extrava
gant for a man in his position. Other charges
were also investigated and found to be ground
less. A motion to accept the report, and reso
lutions expressing undiminished confidence in
the honesty and morality of the Bishop, were
pending at our latest accounts.
Gen. Pierce and the Webster Obse

A Black Dkspe*aj>o —The continued ease of
William Watsen, slave to Win, Myers and hired to
to Messrs. Edmond k. Davenport, charged .with vi
olently assaulting his overseer, Captain J. Wills,
on Tuesday last, came up before the Mayor yester -
day. From the Captain's statement it appeared
Watson was employed on board of his boat and
had charge oi his (Wins') room. II; was in the
habit of waiting on th« Captain at table. Some
two or three weeks ago, one evening, Jus t before
supper, the Captain place J some 10] in go'd and
silver in a drawer in his roona and upon going to
the drawer agaio, Immediately after supper, he
found it had been broken open and th? money ab
stracted. Watson was missing daring supper
time, a very unusual thing, and tho Ceptain there'
fore Buspccted him of stealing th i money. Mr. W.
intended to have ha j the negro ex imined in Lynch
burg about a week since, having delayed examina
tion until that time, in order to flud out, if possible,
the true thief; but Watson ran aw«y at Lynch'
burg and came down here to his master, Mr'
Myers. On Tuesday Captain Wills determined to
flow the negro, and indues him, if possible, to con
fesi the tht fe. lie took him into a tUb'<; and teld
the negro to strip, an J was tureing round to pick
up a switch when the negro jumped and seized &
heavy wooden mailel about two ie t long and six
or seven inches in circumference, and made at the
CapUin. The Captain was just recoveriag from
sickness, and vr»9 therefore very w>'ak and unable
to cope with the black 1 uflitn. A long and terrible
struggled ensued; several limes the negro succeed
ed in striking the Captain over the h:ad and shoul
ders with the mallet, and at last he got the Captain
down, who had i ecome perfectly exhausted, when
Captain McClenahan, who was pasting near the
stable, saw through a window the scuffle, seized an
adze and arrived just in time to save the Captain
from having his skull mashed to pieces bj the ne
gro. The negro was then tied and soundly fl ->gged-
Fhaneg. o, while tied, asked to be unloosed that Le
might kill Captain Wills. Captain W. stated in
court yeEterday, that if the negro was let loose in
Richmond and came in Ibis way, as he had threat
ened to kill him, (Wills) he should certainly feel
justitied in killing him, (Wat3on ) The Mayor said
he could not sutler such a public threat to go un
noticed, and would therefore require $300 security
of the Captain, aud would order the negro 39 lash
es, to be administered as soon as able to bear them-
Mr. Myers, owner of the negro, stating that he in"
tended to sell him to ge South immediately, the
Mayor remitted the security from the Captain.—
From the Captain's statement, the struggle for life
on his part was a fearful one, and it was next to a
mirsclethat bis life was saved. Had hs have been
in good health he could have mastered tho black
villain, who certainly deserves 39 every day Le
ttays here.
Pbcfessgr llalii.—We have received an adver"
tisement from Professor Hale, containing a state
ment explanatory of his course and conduct to

pensable matters preventing its appearance to dsy.
A Pbesent. —We return our thanks to Mr. Win.
A. Butters for a pair of splendid Shanghai fowls.—
As these fowls sell readily for 315 th; pair, it was
no small present. Mr. 8., we are glad to hear, has
been very fortunate in disposing of his slock ; but
there is a plenty mo'e of the same sort left.
Tbhspassi.wj — Christian Bowers, who was
brought before the Mayor Monday last, for behav
ing in a very disorderly manner last Sunday even
ing and bound over for future good behavior, Wot
again brought t« the bar of justice yesterday.—
Bowers, since his last arrest, seemed to have be
come perfectly reckless and came to his boarding
house at Mr. Jones', every night drunk, and be
haved in such an outrageous manner that Mr. J
had to hs,ve him arrested. Lt. Trueheart accord
ingly took him into custody on Thursday evening,
and on yesterday th 3 Mayor committed Bowers to
jail for three months in default of §200 security.

New Vxsjkl.—Oa Thursday, while traversiag
the halt improved region of Rocketts, the beauti
