JOSEPH WALKER. Jobkph Walkkr -was bom in New Or leans, in July, 1780. Hia lather was a anHvft of old England, and his mother was a Creole of Louisiana. Not much is known of his eorly history. Though he did not enjoy ail the »dvont agos of éducation, he acquired ft knowledge of the French, English and »Spanish lan guages; all of which he wrote and »poke with oum> and fluency. When he was twenty or twenty-one lie went. to Mexico, where Lieut. Pike met hiin in 1H07. He was then a lieutenant of dragoons !n tho Spanish service, and mas ter of the militft% school at Chihiiuhtm. Having resigned bis commission, he re turned to civil life, and went into the horse business, which lie followed soveral years. Buying horses in the interior of Mexico, he brought them to Nato her, where he found a ready market l'or tlieni. When his native State was invaded l>y » British army, Mr. Walker hastened to meet, the foreign iuvudor on tho plains of Chulmette, but he did not participate in tho great victory won by (Jen. Jackson, as ho was on particular service on that mom orable day, far from the Held of buttle. About the year 1817 Mr. Walker sslt.b-d in the parish of Rapides, which became his permanent place of residence for the rest of his days, except when called Iroin it by pnblio duties. In 1822 he was called into public lile by the Democratic party by boing elected a member of the Lower House of the Legislature, and he served in that capacity until 1824. On tho 22d of January, 1822, he was created Brigadier General of the Fifth Brigade of tile State Militia. In 1837 he was again returned to tho Jlonse, ot'which he was choscn Speaker by a flattering vote. Having been elected State Senator in 1841, he remained in tbe Senate 2 year* On the meeting of the Convention in 1844, held l'or tbo revision of tho State Constitution, Mr. Walker took his seat in that body, and was called to preside over its deliberations. At the close of the Con vention, a handsome vote of thanks was passed upon tho acceptable marinrr in which the more than ordinary difiicultitis of that position were performed. In 1844 be was nominated for the Uni ted States Senate, but was defeated by the election of tbe late Governor Henry John son. But two years after—that is, in 184(i, the Legislature elected him State Treas urer—a position be held until 1849. His administration of the fiscal affairs of th# State was very satisfactory. His Democratic friends having present ed his name as a candidat» for the office of Governor in .1840, he prevailed over bis opponent. According to the official vote, he reoeived 18,6(10 votes, and DeClouet 17,663. Governor Walker was installed into the office of Chief Magistrate of Louisiana on the 26th of January, 1860, and relinquish ed it on the 20th of January, 1858, tho term of his administration having been ont short by tbe adoption of the Constitution of 1862. Tbe condition of the State was peaceful, prosperous and happy during tho time lie remained at the helm of public affairs Those who believe in the vigorous enforce ment of tho penalties prescribed by law for offences, condemned his tender-heart edness when appealt d to in behalf of criminals who had been condemned to un dergo the punishment decreed bv crime, in truth, he was too kind hearted for the office of Governor. On vacating the gubernatorial chair, Governor Walker withdrew entirely from public life, and retired to his estate in the parish of Rapides, where he passed away, after a protracted illness, on Tuesday, the 22d day of January, i86(i. He was an enthusiastic Free Mason, and had long be fore his death, attained to tho highest grade of that ancient and honored frater nity. Governor Walker had twelve chil dren. He survived his wife sixtocn years Mrs. Walker was born in Mississippi on the 17th of May, J7H7, and died oo the lût h of November, 1840. "Governor Walker," wrote one who knew him well, "was by no means an or dinary man. A Creole of the State, he had striking personal advantages, and his lot was cast amid men and scenes that gave him a clear view of human navire iu its •ver changing phases, and a proper appre ciation of the legislation requisite for a population at one time peculiar, and yield ing slowly to that spirit of progress which is now a distinguishing feature of the age. lie had a mind of rare sagacity, quick in precept;on, and prompt in execution " "Abler men there were in the land in his time, but a nobler or more honest eiti 2en could not bo found. 11 was a principle of his nature to do right, regardless of per sonal cpnw<jucnees; »n<l if be erred lit times, no one ever doubted the integrity of his motives, or tho singleness of purpose that directed hie course." "As a friend, parent, neighbor, and counselor, Governo rWalker was cherished by all" A. A. T. C hhibtopiikk C olumbus .—We find the following interesting statement in tho Madrid letter of tho Now Vork Timos : A sooioty hu» recently beou formed in Paris, the object of which i» te publish rare works on Amorican history and urch »ology. The early SpanHih expeditions, and the organisation of the various colo nies, will thus be fully illustrated in conrso of time. In the mcanewliile, the socioty has thought that it could not do better than to commonce the seriös of its publi cations with a reprint of the letter of Christopher Columbus on tho discovery of the Now World. This document, is the earliest relating to America with which we are at present acqöaintod. A Latin translation of it was printed in 1490 ; Ital ian and German versions speedily follow ed ; and now M. Loon do Kosney presents it to us in a French dross. Tbo editor ex plains in his preface what wore tho real designs of Coinmbus; noscientillc theories, no thought of disoovcriug a new worid ever entered into his head. He wanted merely tt> find another road to India, In >1 te nd of that which travelers followed by Egypt and tho Ked Sea. For this reason he designated by the name of India^the country whore bo landed ; on his arrival at Cuba he believed himself to be in Chins, and was surprised at not meeting with the Khan of Tsrtary. Political conquest, commercial enterprise and religions pros olvtism were the threo leading motives which guided the Genoese admiral, and from this point of view the pamphlet pub lished by M. de Rosny is extremely inter esting. Copious notes have beou added, al. borrowed from original sources. A BE S piritual M kdioms J IWH.BER?-— This question is to be decided by the Uni ted Status Court now in »eosion at khiftalo.
