class with the late Hnu. BrochuM Livingston, of
the supreme Court of the U S. under the of care
Dr. Witherspoon, on* of the signees of the Decla

prepared himself for the holy ministry, but at
the same time imbibed his political principles at
the altar of Ins oppressed country. He was
then, and remained to the last pulsation of his
heart, a firm, un-leviatiog. undaunted Whig, the
u. dent adiinrei of him who was “first in war,
first in peace, and fi«st in the hearts of his
countrx men. ” Returning to the South after

85 75. From stores we hear of nothing doing.
The Report of the Flour [nspecter, exhibits a
falling off this quarter, as compared with the
corresponding quarter last year, of 25.332 bbls;
and the great proportion of inferior grades in this
quarter’s inspection, exhibits but too truly the
inferiority, as the great tailing offin the inspec
tions, does the shortness of the crop. The
amount of inferior grades inspected the past
quarter, is 7.879 barrels more than in the cor
responding quarter last year.—Rich. Whig.
In conseqence of the bud state of the weather
yesterday, there was nothing doing in Flour or
Grain. The Cotton market was entirely without
activity; the sales were from 200 to 300 bales, at
hardly former prices. The accounts per Erie
did not come to hand till late in the evening —
Nothing new to report in Pot Ashes. Sales of
Pearl* at 85. Sale* ol Western Hops at 17 cts.
The sale of Canton Silks at Hone’s did not go

The prices paid, though high, will not on many
descriptions cover costs and charges, and in con
sequence, of many of the lots, only sample cases
were sold.—N. York Courier October 2.
