Riot atJMantuxcjc.—We learn verbally
that an attempt was made last night, by some weavers from this city,to burn Hempton's fac tory at Manyunck. Λ riot was the result, and it is rumored a police officer was shot in the melee. Some muskets were fired. P. S. Since wriiin? the above, we learn thatyesierday, Sheriff Morris received infor mation thai an attack was contemplated upon the mill, with the design ol tearing or burning it down, and in consequence of the informa lion, sent two or three officers to Manyunck» to apprize the citizens of the Isct, and adopt measures to prevent the outrage, and secure thedepred* tors. Very soon the whole town was organized, and together with the Roxbo rough volunteers, prepared for the attack. During the early pari cl the night nothing transpired, and the apprehensions of the citi zens were allayed; but about ι* ο o'clock this morning an attack was made upon several cit izens, and the Borough Constable, Mr. Col lins, who were on the watch, below the town, t>y a considerable force; fire arms were dis charged, iVir Collins receiving several shois in the neck, and thev were forced to tiy into town. The assailants were not heard after wards.—Phil. Jour. The Grand Jury came into the Court of Sessions on Wednesday and through their Foreman requested the Court to inform Ihem under what law trie Grand Jury rould take cognizance of the ptize iii/nt wntrh lateiy took ulace on l art's Island; ai·"* wtitftue*·" f the statute extended to the owners and ofn cersof steamboats engaged in curving fas senger*«> ( esons to and Irom the tight; al so, whether an *»ffence committed in another county was cogr»i/.able hy them; in what manner they were lo arrive at the (act that the captain and owners of boat* so engaged h id knowledge of the fac* hat the onject of theexc wion was a prize fight. To these en quiries the uecorder replied that the Common Ltw gives them cognizance of misdemean or» of this character ; that there was alaot general statute re!ative to conspiracy* and breakers of the peace, in which persona coo· spiring in this or an ν other piace to do ait u?» Ia *tui act in another, could be reached, bv which statute the Grand Inques: were to he governed, which statute also reached the ! owners o! vessels. The fact that the ow- ί nets and captains of vessels employed had a know ledge of the object lor which they were ! employed might he inferred from the general ; notoriety of the intended fi^ht, o: from direct ! communication; and that when a tight had | been fanned in ihe city, and when they had united here for the purpose oi executing their j unlawful purposes in another county, ir was! clearly, in the opinion of the court, a case within the jurisdiction ·>Γ ihe Grand Jury. The Grand Jury then retired to resume j their deliberations. — Ν. Y. American. The late Dr. Maginn.—William Maginn, ; L L D» ciecuied I ν ihe most brilliant ami volu- j nnnous writer the newspaper and periodical j press of England ever possessed, has departed this life, llis father was a sch«>olmaster m Cork, and sent him to college at twelve years ί ol aire. Before he was sixteen he had won j every prize he competed for, and taken his de· j gree of Β A with great e^lat. He was intend- j ed for the church, but did not enter \i He l was or.e of the founder? of Blackwood's Mag azine, of which he was the ''Morgan O'Dnber ty." Forints he wrote during many years, and remained at Cork, a schoolmaster, until 18*22, when he went to London. There he be came a contributor to all sorts of publications —newspapers, reviews, annuals, and maga zines. His income from these sources varied from JC2000 to jflOO a year. He bad .£600 a year for a long time, as sub-editor of *he Stan · dard,the torv evening paper. In politics he was a very strong torv, and no sum of money could ever tempt him to w rite against his prin ciples. He wrote occasionally in Rentier's Miscellany,*»»ci Coihurn'sNew Monthly Mag azine, and a gre.il deal in Frazier's Magazine. A review ol his cutting up a novel by the Hon. Grantlv Berkley,excited that gentleman's ire, and he took a cudgel and cruelly beat Fr»z r the publisher of the Magazine. Pr. Maginn avowed himself the author, a duel ensued, , and considerable spirit was displayed, but no hurt sustained on eilher suie. Magrnn also wrote political arucles for the Age, A'gus, Morning Herald, Conservative Journil, and many other papers in t«>wn and country. He wrote with great rapipitv, and equally j well, whether drunk or sober. Unfortunate- ! iy. his were convivial habits which left him j little time for any writing but that which pro vided tor the passing hour He nerer ivrote any distinct work, and hence, in a few ye-irs, unless selections from his miscellaneous writ- » trigs be published in a volume, or volumes, nothing will remain but his name. Maginn was always it) pecuniary difficulties. *, Discounts on bills and law expenses, ran j away, 1 am positive, wi'h nearly half hi* in come. He has left a widow and three chil- j dren, in great distress. A subscription has j been commenced for them, and it is thought. Sir II. Feel wiil çïve them a pension oui of the Civil List. Maginn was aged 47 years. He had a slight hesitation in bis speech, j which wore off when excited. He knew ( Greek. Latin and Hebrew, as well as he knew ι English. All the Jiving languages (Uussian j and Irish included) he could speak* or trans late, and his talent for versification was 'hat of an in i>nprov:$atore. j Health ok Washington.—Having heard it reported that sickness and mortality were very prevalent in this metropolis, we have considered tt our duty to make particular in - j quirv into the matter among some of our lead mg physicians.

We saw yesterday some of the new j ami beautiful issue of ten and five dollar notes bv the Bank of Potomac. The fâ ρ! ι tes are finished specimens of engraving, and the vignettes appropriate and well ex ecuted. It looks something like old times to see the notes of our banks again.

The New York American is of the opinion ibat the appointment of Don N. J. Almonte, as Minister Plenipotentiary from the Republic of Mexico to the United States, being made after the receipt of Mr. Webster's reply to ^ocane - gra, augurs well for the settlment of all the difficulties between the two countries.

From the Richmond Whig. The suggestion oi your New York Corres pondent, in one of his recent letters, thai Jim Wilkins, the negro Butler, was an influential member of the Advisory Council at Washing ton, is not so destitute ot foundation as many persons might suppose. I heard recently, from a source eutuled to credit, that when our oratorical friend, Jack Pendleton, was reconnoitering the Palace for a foreign mis sion, he modestly hinted to Jim that England or Russia would be very agreeable to his de sires—but that Jim unhesitatingly extinguishd the Urator's aspirations, by saying, l4Ali! none that, tnassa Jack !—You know you are not fit j lor any of those big jobs,—hut be a little pa | tient and we will send you down to South 'America." Jim was true to his promise. I am also informed from the same source, that on the day of the adjournment of Congress, when his Accidency ν as about to leave the White House, with his Secretaries, as is eus tomary,Ji«D accosied him as follows: "My dear Governor (the title which he always gives the Great man,) don't send Congress any more vetoes and particularly don't pocket any οΓ the Bills, like General Jackson, Whereupon his Majesty poured forth a tor rent of execrations, not upon Jim, but upon Congress,—and swore that if he did not veto, he would put some of the Bills into his pocket. The Major D ibo, finding that his advice was not altouetner relished, withdrew, wjiha profound oheis.<nce, into tue inner Court.

DIED, On Friday, the 23d inst. at his residen.co in the county of Fairfax, after an illness of some ten days, Captain Joshua Hutch inson, in the 76th year of his age. In the death ol this worthy and excellent man, society has sustainad a deep loss. For many years he was an honest and energetic Justice of the Peace, and at the time ol his death High Sheriff of bis cownty, and during a period οΓ more than tnree fourths of a cen tury, his walk in every department of life was such, as to ootiin the esteem and Iriendship of all—the enmity of none, lie was an orderly and patriotic citizen—a kind and charitable neighbor—a sincere and warm friend—a scru pulous and efficient public officer—emphati cally, an honest man. He died, it is believed, without an enemy in this world, and having made peace with his God,with the firm and confident hope of being' acceptably received in a brighter and better one. The prayer of his survivors is,so mote it be! and over his earthiy remains their only exclamations are. peace, peace to his ashes! OBITUARY. "The young may die, but the old must '* When age with its cares and sorrows sinks into the tomb, it is an event which all natural· ly expect, and to which we resignedly sub mit. But when the young, just entering upon the stage ol existence, flushed with all the vigor appertaining to such a per on, dreaming of long years of pleasure yet to come—when they are smitten by the insatiable Archer, theii there are feelings called into exercise of no very enviable character. We wonder why so soon they have left us—why it is that the aged whose locks are already whitened with the snows of many winters, and whose earth ly course is so nearly run,—why it is that they already ripe for the harvest, were not gather- I ed home, and the young left to fill theirplaces. But ilius it is. and it behooves us not to call in question the v.isdom of Him in whose hands are the destinies of individuals as well as nations. How true is it then that the young may die, as has been exemplified in the death of Mr. Charles H. Fisher, which was an nounced on Saturday morning last. The dis ease which terminated his existence was pul monary consumption. His sufferings were very severe, but not a murmur escaped his lips, be ing perfecily resigned to the will of his Maker. And ii may be gratifying to lus f riends here, as well as at a distance to know, that he was fully prepared for his change; and the manner in wnich it was communicated was most af fecting and satisfactory. The day previous to his dissolution fie called his mother to him and said, mother—i am going. Where are you going, my son? To Jesus; and it my lips were not so dry and parched wiih fever, 1 would kiss you, but i will kiss you in Heaven We would then say to that devoted and af fectionate mother, as well ns his other rela tions, that their loss is his infinite gain,—that fie is released Irom the sorrows and troubles of this life; and ι Γ l hev die as he died, it will : not he long before tiiey are re-united, to part j no more forever.
