The respite of Win. II. Keene—who was to have suffered the extreme penalty of the law, on Friday last—duly executed by the Gover nor, and bearing date on the 17th day o( Janu ary 1^57, was placed in the hands of Mr. \\ al ter Powell, Sheriff, by a Special Messenger from Richmond, on Thursday afternoon, the 2lUh of January. This respite suspends the execution of the sentence until the *J7th of j March next, when, if there is no lurther in ! terposition by the F.xecutive of the State. Keene will be executed. We make this state ment in justice to the Sheriff of this county, to show his authority lor tailing to execute 1 the criminal, and to contradict the impression abroad that he was governed by the tele graphic despatch received trom the Governor, which was only sent to notify him that the proper paper would be forthcoming as soon as the communication was open between Richmond and this place. We are glad to be able to say that, through the attention of cur friend, Mr. Robert Alii sod, those of our citizens who were without Flour have been able to supply themselves therewith for present need.

Notwithstanding the bad reads quite a crowd of persons were in our village on I ri* day last. Many of them came to witness ! Keene’s execution—not having heard that a respite had been granted by Gov.

I An esteemed correspondent, re^idi rg a* Be thel, Clermont county, Ohio, writes us that | he has discovered a remedy for the ma i lady among hogs, which has proved so <ie I structive in the Miami \ alley. His remedy is to put two quarts of flaxseed in ten ga» I Ions of water, and boil it until the seed is I thoroughly cooked, and then give it to the j hoge as hot as they can drink it, and repeat I the dose for a week or so. Our corre?-p<>n dent found this remedy cflectuul. It is very simple, and is well worthy of a trial among farmers.— Cincinnati L/uj. The Tampico Heroine, Mrs. Chase has just returned from a Euro pean tour, and is on her way to I auipico. Mrs. Chase is an historical character.

By Saturday Evening*!* Malls* -:o: Suffering.—About thirty emigrant oas Fengers, and several of the crew from the ship Samuel Russel, from China for New Nork, were brought up to Norfolk, Thursday atter noon, in the steamer Shultz.

The helpless j one9 were taken to the Marine Hospital for treatment. Caugiit in the I< e.—Tohn Smith, an old ’ negro man, was caught in the drift ice, in the river yesterday afternoon, and came nigh j losing his life. He had gone out in a boat j to catch drift wood, or secure another boat, j when his little craft became jammed in the j floating ice, and was borne down the stream j till opposite Cole’s barrel factory, wheu 1 Messrs. Samuel Temple aud William Get- i tings, seeing his situation, procured a small boat, and pushed it along on the ice, till get- j tiug near enough to throw him a rope, which he readily seized, and was drawn ashore by ; the large crowd that had gathered along the banks to witness his perilous condition.— Rich.
