Hi father U faid to be a North Carolinian, but to h tve lived in Put nam Co. for more than thirty years where he ha accumulated nome property. He i reprefeiitiil a an ijrr.oiu.it and d(batd man: hi father wa a drunkard, and he i himelf an intemirate man. In religion, he i fail to be a "Hard Shell Baptist; in politic, a I)emoerat(?) of the Pierce, Huehanan, and Willard fehotd; oj-i-o-ctl to Free School, and destitute of any lilnral ideas on religion or povcrnment. Tlie late victim of our criminal laws wa. a!)ut tw enty-five year of age, of a low and brutal organization; of a v ieiou, atubbom, revengeful disposition; and, when we take into the account hi hating received very little or rather, perhajs c should pay a very bad education, and consider hi prob able hircditary proclivities we can wonder but little that favoring circumstance should have precipitated the ar.ct.T. Let it be taken a a lee-ton and a warning. Mtdlenix i ?nid to have married hi vic tim, Mi. Sublett, from an ill-feeling toward some other person, in order to let them ace" what Jie could do. She wa a piiet, well-difjMel girl, of a family very nearly upon a par a to Koci.il htamling and charac ter with that of htr huOiand and murderer. It i paid he treated her unfeelingly, im poetl harddhi upon he-r, exprexfe.! hi dis like of housekeeping, and talked frequently of going Wet. Tin y had be e n mat rieil just a month when he took her life with nn axe, cleat ing her fkull to the brain while i-he wa preparing break faxt, en the morning of the 10th April, of the present year. He wa tiie'd in Octo ber and i"entetiped to be hung in Nvem'cr, but through the intercession of hi father, w a repiteil by Oov. WillanI for four wee ks, at the expiration of which time the sentence of the law wa canie'd eut. He n-fin to h.tvc tnUittincd a singular eoiifidrnep, to the laut utmost, that he would nut be executed. He ,4had been fooleel once;" ami cvrn when all doubt must have been remove-d from his mind, he manifeste! the mo.t atolid and reckless intlifferenee a to hi fate-, and treated the whole matter with the moid elisgu.'ting levity get into hi eflin to se e how it would lit " trice! on. hi black cap, nnl saitl he hojed he would "have the pleasure ef wearing it to-mr-row;" mul said, when about leaving the prison for tho seaflold, that It hi "iimtlier and sister felt troublcl," it wa moic than hp did. Clergymen who visited him eluring hi. confinement, could not draw any thing like a cmlesiou front him. He once said that if he s.tw how a coiifiou would do him any good, he " might think about it," but he did not m e how it could. Though tlie prixofipr wa to be execute! in private, a huge coiuMiurce of people from "the F..i-t and the iVe.t,the Neith and the Houth," wen- crowiliug the jtlmts, e-tger to gratify e ui iosily. , mpp lud be n ctre tehed some forty or ft It v feet front the Imtosurc, and guard w Ith loadetl inuske t (the prof fitetl Mrvle'e of the Indian tjoi militia having, it is said, bent deelined) were uble to keep the " sove reigns " at b.iv.

The ex hibition ef such see nes to the public w e re paid dicideilly prejudicial to the initial filling of a large jiortioii, at least, of enir fellow-beings. And we have long enter tained a private opinion of our own and one which we have no objection to making public that the apparent uuxienty of cer tain etlitors and newspaper rejwtrteT te por tray all the sicki'ning detail of the moat dis graceful ami revolting action of which ele pravetl human nature i capable, is, to pay the very least, eif doubtful propriety.

Le t the Little Oiant be fastened to hi seat in the Senate Chamber, with his head bent down und hi leg under hi. desk, in auch a manner a to make it imoihlc for him to rise; and let all wrapm be taken front him, if he h.ia any. 2. Let Mr. Keitt of South Carolina pro vide himself with a heavy club, a Injwie knife, and a revolver. 3. Let Mr. Keitt be furnished withatdy guard, consisting of two members' of Con press, (one from South Caretlina and one from Yirginia.) armetl to the teeth. 4. Let Mr. Keitt, w ith Ids body-guard, be admitted Into the Senate Chamber, and let the Imdy-guard keep near enough to him to save him from all posroMc danger. f. Let Mr. Keitt chivalrously, but cau tioner, creep up to the Little Ohmt ami brat hint senseless with a club. Let the beating le continued for a few miaute. upon the hf.ld of the Little (iiant after he ahall have fallen ujKn the floor, so that he may be fully otbdncd." Tlie plan, if thoroughly c.trrie-d out, would I practical, ehivalric, saf. (thla point Mr. Keitt will appreciate) and cfl'cctual. It would relieve Harhanan front much tnuble; weuld h heartily applauded by Fernando Wool an.l the rest of the De mocratic party, ami would umloubteellv "Save the Union." jCfTThe intlivitltial wlto wa con tent that hi life ahouhl l-e linked with crime, ta foimJ a strong chain rountj hUlei.

Ih low wc give our rentiers sm' er ccrta from "The Autocrat of the Prcak-fust Table" in the New Atlantic Monthly ; hoping the reading may af ford them as much pleasure a it elM us. 1 rctrly tVliexe f-ome feob? save their bright thoughts, as being too pre cious for conversation. What elo you think an admiring frieml said the either lay to one that was talking good things, good enough to print? "Why," said he, "you are wasting mcrchantablo literature, a cash article, at the rate, as nearly as I ean tell, of fifty dollars an hour." 'Die talker took him to the window and asked him to lok out and tell what ht saw. " Nothing but a very dusty street," he said, "ami a man elriving a sprinkling-machine through it." " Why don't you tell the man he is wasting that water? What would be the state ef the highways of life, if we elid not elrive our thovyfit'gprinkler through them with the valves open, sometimes ? " Desith's there is another thing about this talking, which you forget. It shapes eur thoughts for us y -the waves of conversation re ill thtm as the surf rolls tho pebbles on the fdiore. Iie-t me modify tho image a little. I rough euit my thought in talk as an artist models in clay. Spoken lan guage is so plastic, you can pat and coax, and spread and shave, and rub out, and fill tip, and stick on so easily, when ye .ii work that soft material, that there is nothing like it for modelling. Out of it come the shapes which you turn into lnaible or bronze in yeur im mortal books, if you happen to write such. Or, to use another illustration, writing or printing is like shooting with a title; vou nwiv hit vour reader's mind, or mi. s it ; but talking is like playing nt a mark with the pipe of an engine; if it is within reach, und you" have time em ugh, voit can't help hit ting it." It is an odd idea, that almost all eur people have' hail a professional education. To become a doctor a man must studv some three years and bear a thousand lectures, more or less. Just how mue h study it takes to make a lawyer I cannot say, but probably not more than this. Now most elecent people hear one hundred lectures or sermons (discourses) on theology every vear, und this, twenty, thirty, fifty years together. They read a great many religious books besides. The ch rgy, however, reatly hear any ser mons exivpt what they preaeh them selves. A dull prraeher might be eon ecivctl, tliete'fore, to lapse into a state ef ittatii heathenism. And on the oth er hum!, an attentive and intelligent hearer, listening to a succession of wise teacht'iK, might become actually botte-r educated in theeilogy than any one of them. Weatoall theological students, and molt of us epialilicil as doctors of divinity than have received degrees at any ed the univcisities. It is not strange, therefore, that very good people should often find it dilli cult, if not impossible, to keep their at tention lixeil upon a sermon treating feebly a subject which they have thought vigorously about for years, and heard able men discuss scores of times. 1 have tdten noticed, however, that a hopelessly dull discourse acts in tlud'urly, as electricians would my, in ele eloping strong mental currents. J am ashamed to think with what accom paniments and variations and J or U tire 1 have sometimes followed the droning ofn heavy speaker, not willingly, for my habit is reverential, but as a neerssary result of a slight continuous impression on the senses atid the mind, which kept both in action without fur nishing the food they required to work upon. If you ever saw a crow with a king-bird after him, yeu will get an image e.f a dull speaker and a lively listener. The bird in sable plumage llaps heavily aleng his straight-for-N ward course, while tho other sails around him, over him, tinder him, leaxes him, comes hack again, tweaks out a black feather, shoots away once more, never htsing sight of him, and finally reaches the crow's perch nt the same time the crow eloes, having cut a perfect labyrinth of loops and knots and spirals while the slow fowl was painfully working from one end of his straight line to the other. I think these remarks were received rather coolly. A temporar' boarder from the country, consisting of n some what more than middle-aged female, with a parchment forheael ami a elry little "frisettc" shingling it, a sallow neck with a necklace of gold beads, a black elress too rusty for ree'cnt grief, and contours in basso-rilievo, left the table prematurely, and was reported to have Loon very virulent about what I said. So I went to my good obi min ister, ami repeated the remarks as nearly as I could rememler thorn, to him. He laughed good-naturedly, und said there was considerable truth in them, lie thought he could tell when reopb,s minds were wandering, by their looks. In the earlier years of his ministcry he had sometimes noticed this, when he was preaching ; very littl of late years. Sometimes, when his coJliguo was preaching, he tdsrved this kind e.f inattention; but after all, it was not so very unnatural. I will say, by the way, that it is a rule I have long followcil, to tell my worst thoughts to my minister, and my Wat thoughtM to the young jsople i talk with. J -I want to trinkt a literary con fession now, which I Udievo nobody has made lefore me. Yon know very well that I write verses sometime, leoAUsea I have read some of them at this table. (The company assented, two or three of them in a resigned sort of way, a 1 thought, as if tlW sup posed I had an eyi in my pocket, and was going to read half a dozen 'books r for their l-'mdit.) I 'ohtinu-.l. Of e oiit-e I write some lines er To;- rahem Uieiia tJterarv life is full of curiou i Thu drift r.c afar to the dim vauio-d cave it Hoti't know that the , ii - sa-e uhi.ir are letter than other ; js anything to' noticeable than what .. . .i . . some whi h, companM with the others, might Is called relatively excellent. It is in the nature of things that I should consider these relatively excel lent lines or passages as absolutely god. Se much must le pardoned to humanity. Now I never wrote a "good" line in my life, but the. mo ment after it was written it seemed a hundred years old. Very commonlv I line! a sudden conviction that I had seen it somewhere. IV.ibly I may have sometime' unconsciously stolen it, :ut I elo not remember that I ever once detected any historical truth in thoJc sudden convictions of the nnti epuiiy ef my new thoughts or phrase. ' I have learned utterly to distrust them, and never allow them to bullv me out of s. thought or line. This is the philosophy of it. (Here the number of the company was eli mir.ished by a small secession.) Any new formula which suddenly emerges in our consciousness has its mots in long trains of thought ; it is virtually old when it first makes its appearance among the recognized growths of our intellect. Any crystalline group of musical words has had u long and still pcriejd to form in. Here is erne theory. Hut there is a larger law which per haps comprehends these fact. It is this. The rapidity with wh'nh ideas grow old in our memories is in a direct ratio to the squares of their importance. Their apparent age runs up miracu lously, like the value of diamond i, as they increase in magnitude. A great calamity, for instance, is as edd as the trilobitesan hour after it has happened. It Htains backward through all the leaves we have turned etver in the book ed' life, before its blot of tears or ef blood is dry en the page we are turning. For this we seem to have liwd ; il was forshadowed in dreams that we lea j cd out of in the cold sweat of terror; in t'.ie "disMtlving views" of dark tlay-vi-sions ; nil mucus minted to it ; all -paCi led to it. Aftei the tosiug half- lorj.;t't fulness of the lirst sleep that fol lows such tin event, it comes upon us afresh, as a surprise, at waking; in a few moments it is old again, old as et et n it v. . I wis't 1 liml not said all this then and there. 1 might have known bet ter. The pale schoolmistress, in her mourning elivss, was looking at me, as I noticed, with a wild sort of expres sion. All at once the blood dropped out of her cheeks as the tnercuiy drops fro! i a broken barometer-tube, and she melted awav from her seat like un im age of snow; a slung-shot could not hnvij brought her down better. Uol forgive me ! After this little episode, I continued, to some few that remained balancing ti'nspoons on tin edges of cups twirl ing knives, or tilling upon the hind legs ed' tln'ir eliairs until their heads reath 'd the wall, where they left gra tuit ;u advert iseinents ed' vai ions popu lar t osmetics. When a pe'ison is suddenly thrust intt any strange, new position of trial, le find the place fits him a if In had been measured for it. lie h is commit ted a great crime, for instance, ami is sent to the State Urison. Tho tindi tioi.s, prescriptions, limitations, privi leges, all the sharp conditions ef his new lift1, stamp themselves upon his coiiucioiisness us the signet of soft wax; a single pressure is enough. I-t mo utrongthen The image a little. Did you ever happen to sco that most soft spoken ami velvet-handed steam-engine at tho Mint ? The smooth piston slides backward ami forward as a lady might slip her delicate finger in ami out of a ring. The cngino lays one ed 'V. f ngers calmly, but firmly, upon a bit of tuettal ; it is a coin now, and will reniMnber that touch, and tell a new race about it, when the elate upon it is crusteel with evcr twenty centuries. So it is that a great silent-moving misery puts a new stamp on us in an hour or a moment, ns sharp an im-". and his stoT the best. th wemavoall iourcittonal refutations. 1 here is a tacit understanding in eveiy community of men e.f letters that they will not disturb the popular fallacy re specting this or that electro-gilded ce lebrity. There are various reasons for this forbearance: one is old; one is rich ; one is good-natured ; one is such a favorite with the pit that it would not be safe to hiss him from the man ager's box. The venerable augurs of the literary or scientific temple may smile faintly when one of the tribe is mentioned ; but the farce is in general kept up as well as the Chinese comic scene of entreating and cmploring a man to stay with you, with the implied compact between you that he shall by no means think ef eloing it.

Mr. Waire n, (of Anrk.,) arose to a question of privilege and offe red hi pre amble and resolution relative to Utah, and requiring the Committee on Territories to report on the propriety of excluding the tbl gate from that Territory from a sat in thi House, which wa prevent e-d several day since. Mr. Warren said that this i a case which the eotmtrv nnd eve rv honest man de sired tbe inv e?digatcd. Me r.tbe r wee se t ting here with the delegate from aT-erritory which was not only mcrally, but legally in epen rebellion against the (ovtrnuitiit of the United States. , Mr. Hank of Ma., iaid that the fact that the preamble eleclares that a state ef war exist in Utah did not bring the matter be-fore the House a a epilation of privilege. He ndmitte-d that the eonclu sioii all. ctol the e!e!egati 'a rights, but the fact on which Mr. Warren had baaed his conchi-doiis did t i t af fect hi right. The Speaker remaiked that the preamble mipht or inilit not be adopted by the Iloue. Mr. lloeock agreed that thi w a a eoie-s-tion of privilege, but it would be for the Hou.-e- to sty whether the reason. a.-e.dgncd should be admitted. He was not, nor wa the House pre pared to admit the fact charg ed, as constituting Miflieieut ground for the rejection of the delegate. A the Houc cannot rct up an injunction of moral or re ligion, vc cannot declare a s'tate or Tei iiten in a condition e.f moral rebellion, and that, therefore, its representative Is not entitled tobe heard en thi floor. The State might be in rebellion, vet are not those vho are true und loyal, entitled to representation? liutwe have no facta ly which we eau declare Utah tobe in legal re bellion against the country. Where is the mrs-age ed the lYcsidciit, declaring that Utah i in u utate ef re-bellioti? It would do no harm to refer the resolution to the Com mittee on Territories, for investigation. After farther debate, the resolution in structing the Committee on Territories to e-nquiremto the expediency of immediately excluding Mr. Ilernhisel, the delegate front Utah, from his seat, w a adopted.

Such hospitality as that Island ha seen there has not boon the like etf in these our Xew Knglatid soveieigiitlos. There is nothing in the shape of kind ness ami courtesy that can make life beautiful, which has not found its homo in that ocean-principality. It has welcomed all who wore worthy of welcome, from the pale clergyman who came to breathe the- sea-air with its medicinal salt ami iodine, to tho great statesman who turned his back eu the affairs of empire, and smoothed his Olympian forhead, ami flashed his white teeth in merriment over the long table, where hi wit Was the kenot prcssion as if it had taken half a lifo time to engrave it. It is awful to be in the hands of the wholesale professional elealers in mis fortune ; undertakers ami jailers magnetize you in a moment, ami you pass out of the individual life you were living into the rlrythmie'al movements I elon't lo!i;yc any man ever talked like that in tnis world. I don't be lieve talked just so ; but the fact is, in reporting "te's conversation, one can not help llair- it up more or less, ironing out crumpled paragraphs, starching limp ones, and crimping and plaiting a little sometimes; it is as nat of f ieir horrible machinery. Do the ,al as prinking at the looking-glass. How can a man help writing poetry in such a place? Kvcrybody docs write poetry that tr" there. In worst thing jou can, or stiller the worst that can be thought of, you find your self in a eategetry of humanity that stretches back as far as Cain, and with an expert at your elbow that has stud ied your case all out beforehand, ami is waiting for you with his implements ofh:mp or mahogany. 1 believe, if a man were to be burned in any of our cities to-mormw fur heresy, there would be found a master of ceremonies that knew just how many fagots were necessary, and thelost way for arrang ing the whole matter.

He said that e nab!? g act we re not to be reganled a imlispe -n?h!y ne-ee'sary to the admission of new- State s, and he proceeded to lay down these principle to the case under consideration. The ejuestioni. to be aeke-d were, whether the form of government was Kepubliein, and whether the people were satisfied w' it, and asked admission under it; fer the power of Cngrcn was to admit the State, not coerce it. He contended that half of the people in Kansas had had no op portunity to vote for the election of dele gates to the Convention, as in pome counties no census wan take n. How eon Id thev tu expected to abide by it decision, when the'r voiec had not been heard? lie also be licved that the Convention had intended a trick and fraud upon the pce.ple, and xpre-seel views in aceenlanee with thoeof Mr. Don"- er las, previously submitted. He would never fjive his vote to consummate that fraud, which he believed to be the most enormous fraud that was ever undertaken to be prac ticed upon any people under the form of law. He believed that if this Con-tit ution was forced ujs.n the pe-e.ple of Kansas, those who did it would Iipht the torch of rivil discord throughout the entire Union.
