In the Senate, yesterday, Mr. Bell spoke
on the Nebraska bill. Mr. Gillette, the new
Senator from Connecticut, appeared.
In the House of Representatives, the De
ficiency bill was farther discussed.
The Dead Come to Life.
The readers of the Republican iu 1844 or
1845, can hardly fail to recollect an aeeouut
of the mysterious disappearance from Jeffer
son Cityxof a gentleman by the name of Cor
dell, then doing business there as a mer
chant. It created great excitement then, and
tor a long time afterward. At the time of
writing this article we cannot reler to our
files, but our recollection is,’ that he lett Jef
ferson City for Boouville, and was seen on
the way by a citizen of Jefferson, w ith whom
he had a" brief conversation, and nothing
more was ever heard of him. It was known
that he had money with him, for the purpose
of entering, or purchasing lands, and this
led to the supposition that he had been mur
dered aud robbed. At all events, nothing
was’ ever heard of him after that period. His
friends offered large rewards for the discove
ry of the murderer, and the Governor of the
State did the same thing, tears passed;
the family, under conviction of his death, ad
ministered upon his estate, and it was settled
up. His widow, (;ts every one supposed her
to be,) and two children, returned to her
father’s roof, where they have ever since resi
ded. Mr. Cordell, for years before his disap
pearance, maintained an enviable reputation
at home and abroad.
With a knowledge of these facts, what was
our surprise yesterday to learn that he had
appeared, in proper person, at the house ot
Mr. Samuel Conway, a connexion by mar
riage, in this county, and made himself
known, after au absence of some nine or ten
vears. He was recognized, and it is under
stood that information was giveu of the un
expected return to his family, living in an
other part of the country. We cannot speak
with accuracy of his whcreal»outs during the
time of his absence, lie accounts for his
leaving home by supposing that it was dur
ing a period of mental alienation—he has
been in Mexico, and from thence went to
New York, and now has returned to Missou
ri.—St. h>nis IntelUi/ewer.
Presbyterian Assemblies.
Buffalo, Mav 24th.—Since our last report
the Old School Assembly has l>een mainly em
ployed in considering the judicial case involv
ing the right of the Church to strike from the
lists ot Klders all refusing to have their chil
dren baptized. The argument was not con
cluded when the hour arrived for hearing the
rei»ort of the Board of Education.
The Board have circulated 28,000 1 ><>oks

The Board ot Domestic Missions reported
iu favor of building a church at M ashing
toil, and recommended the collection of trom
$50,000 to $100,oOU.
The report relative to the Danville Semina
ry came up, when a warm personal debate
commenced. Dr. McMaster, of \ a., attack
ed bitterly the action of the committee at the
last General Assembly, charging that they
had improperly suppressed information before
them, and induced the Assembly to adopt the
report, which otherwise would not have been
adopted.
The tight is between the Danville and New
Albany Semiuaries. Dr. Breckenridge op

McMasters had uot concluded at the time ot

The Mormons.
: The la>t Edinburg Rev iew, contains a com
plete history of this corrupt community,
from the origin of the gross imposture
through its whole scandalous progress down
! to the present moment, it gives a lair view
! of the doctrines and the condition oi the
Mormons, and holds them up, by a plain
1 statement of undeniable facts, t<» the dis
gust and horror of the civilized world.—
The Review states that more dupes have
been made in England to this misehiev
i uus and monstrous delusion than iu all
! the world besides. Mentioning an au
thentic j*»rtrait of Joseph Smith—the Ma
homet—the Review remarks: “Never did we
see a face on which the hand ol lleaven had
more legibly written rascal.” The face was
a faithful index of the character. Astonish
I iugas the growth of Mormonism seems even
j to those who never knew its founder, to those
j w ho did, it is so utterly astounding that they
have no words to express their wonder. If the
reader will bring to bis recollection the most
thorough, irredeemable, acknowledged scamp
j ofall his acquaintance, and try toimaginesuch
a man the successful head of a new religion,
he will have some ideaof the boundless won
derof those who formerly knew ‘Joe Smith/
j at tiie triumph of the imposture of the most
notorious and graceless vagabond in all M es
tern New York.— Itich. ]>infmtrh.

The Small Note Law.
The Central and Petersburg Railroads
have given notice that passengers must be
provided with the proper change with which
to pay their fare, as these companies cannot
furnish it.
The Petersburg Iutelligeneer, noticing the
move of the latter company, says:
“According to this decision, it a passenger
offers a Virginia live dollar note, payable in
Richmond or Petersburg, it will not be re
ceived. The traveller must put torth the
specie or be put out of the train.
This is the precursor of the mischiefs
which the last Legislature eutailed ou the

Manassas Gap Rail Road.
We learn that the Manassas Gap Rail-Road
Board, have put under contract the line of
their Road from their I>epot at Jones’s Point,
in Alexandria, to Gainsville, a distance ot 34
miles; and the Loudoun Branch Road which
diverges at a point on the main stem of the
Manassas Gap Railroad, 21 miles from Alex
andria, and extends to Pursellville? a dis
tance of 27 miles, which is only 10 miles
from Harper’s Ferry.
This link, when completed, and it will be
prosecuted with vigor, will put us in imme
diate connection with Wheeling, and connect
us with the Winchester and Potomac Road,
which is 32 miles in length, making the dis
tance from Alexandria to Winchester by
Railroad, 06 miles. The country through
which these roads are to run, is said to be
exceedingly favorable for their constructs n
with easy grades. The grade coming east
from Pursellville to Alexandria, does not
exceed 20 feet to the mile, and the highest
grade between that point and Harper’s Ferry
coming east, is 20 feet to the mile, according
to the surveys made of the route.
Upon the action of the Count}' Court of
Rockingham, at its next term, (June,) the
line of the Manassas Gap Road to Harrison
burg will be put under contract as soon as
located , and as far as Woodstock, forthwith.
At the last term of the Circuit Court for
this County, G. L. Gordon was appointed
Commissioner in Chancery, vice, Jas. W.
Green, resigned. The suit of Irwin and
others, vs. Charles MeKnight’s executors and
others, was compromised ami settled, by de
fendants paying to plaintiffs $11,000 and
costs.
The Sentinel states that the Prince Wil
liam locomotive, which draws the passenger
trains between Alexandria and Gordonsville,
makes the whole distance,—about 88 miles,
with but one Tender load of wood, a remark
ably* small consumption of fuel, and indicat
ing great excellence in the engine and skill
in its management._
