A shocking murder of a young Herman was perpetrated on the Battery, in New \ ork, some two years since, at a late hour oi the night; and the case was investigated l>y C» r* oner Ives, but no clue to the affair was ob tained. The Mayor offered a reward <»f>.">«*) for the murderer's apprehension, but ir had no effect, and every idea of arresting the assassin was abandoned. The N. \ . Times, however, says that a few days ago, a nut. r ious convict known as ••French,” who was arrested with the two murderers. Saul and Holett, died in the Sing Sing State prison. A few moments before the pour wretch breath ed his last he confessed to a keeper that tin* murder was committed by Saul, 11>• 1 *• 11, Johnson, (now in State prison) and himself, for the paltry sum of $35, which they -t -U* from the corpse, and then pitched it user the railing near Castle Harden. MORMON erRRKN(*V. \Vc have seen a gold coin of tlie currency which circulates in the City of Saints. This Mormon coin is rather thinner than a five dollar gold piece of our currency, is not mill ed on the edge, and the figures and letters on it are but poorly stamped. On one side i* a representation of two clapped hands witn the figures 1840 beneath them, and the words “five dollars’' around the edge. Above the hands and around the edge are the letters “C. S. L.

A student put this question to the late Dr. Archibald Alexander. His simple and admi rable reply was: “Virtue consists in doing | our duty, in the several relations that we sustain, in respect to ourselves, to our i’ellow men, and to God, as known from reason, coti k science and revelation.” PAPER. | Thero arc about one hundred and titty miles of paper, live feet broad, made every ‘ day by the paper mills in the county of Ed inburgh alone; and it is computed that the | three hundred and sixty machines at w ork in Britain produce about two thousand one bun* j dred and sixty miles of paper daily.
