; The designation of Messrs. Vinton
and Harris as Senatorial delegates and
the 'appointment of Col. Trump as dis

Either of these gentlemen will properly

A Tale or Extraordinary Supkhhino
Want and Death. The Fredericks
burg, (Vs.) News narrates the following
extraordinary incidents in the life of a
man named Watson, who some fifteen
year ago, left Alexandria, settled in King
George county as a meichant, married
a highly respectable young lady, by
whom he had four childien, and subse
quently became a widower and a bank
"With his litlle children, twn of whom
were daughters, he lived on a small farm
which he rented, three miles below the
line seperaiiug Stafford and King George
Dining the coldest of the weather in ihe
latter part of December last, his child
ren were seized with the whooping
cough, and everyna of them prostrated
Whilst thus confined, their father was
taken with erysipelas, and in the same,
room lay thefaiher snd childien, peilect
ly helpless. Whilst th us confined, some
fiends broke in his meat and fowl houses
and stole every fowl and piece of meat
on the farm, induing so they passed
through the garden, levelling the fence
and thereby permitting the cattle and
hogs to destroy el III he vegetables intend
ed for winter use. The only thing left
for the support of that family was a small
quantity of com meal and some unroaat
ed cottee. In that condition they lay a
largo portion of the time without water,
without fire and without food.
"A poor widow in the neighborhood
sent them a small piece ot meat, and the
oldest hoy. not quite so ill as the test,
d'd, as long as hissirengih would enable
him, crawl to the fire place, stir up the
dying embers, half cook some bread, fiy
a piece of meat, and with coffee without
milk or sugar, attempt to relieve the hun
ier of his dying father and sisters. On
one occasion, weak and feeble as he was
ho "staggered" through the snow to
nei Idiot's house to procure fire At
one time the father and children won I

the house and no one lo hi inn it. 1 hits
they lay tor several days, until liod, in
his rneicy, took two of the children.
Two days did they lay coipses ry the
side of their sii k parent, and no one lo
prepare them for sepulture and convey
them 'to the tomb A man arcidenily
passing by, called in, found the family as
we have described them, the lather hluid
and inseie-ihle, with his two dead child
ren one fiozen to death lying by his
side, and letl th m in that condition,
Two days after this iho father died.
The night preceding his death he had
hemotifiHge ii ml bled most profusely.
By his side were his son and his daugh
ter barely able to raise their heads, hut
nerved lo the occasion they sat by him
the whole night ahum, using evciy
means Iheii infant minds could suggest
in staunching the blood. A poor widow,

came to his house, had him and his two
dead children buried, took ihe sick ones
home with her, nursed ihem, and has
since restored them lo health."
Death or Bishop Hkodino. At half
past 12 o'clock, on Friday IbbI, the ven

of dropsy, at Poughkeepsie, N. Y., after
a long and paintul illness. . More than a
year ago he became awie that he was a
victim of the disease under which he has
finally fallen, and, during the past monitv
or two, his end was constantly felt to be
rapidly approaching. ;
Mrs. Gaines' Case. The U. S. Su
preme Court, which recommenced its
session in Washington last week, it is
stated, has refused a re hearing to Mrs.
Gaines, widow of Gen. Gaines, by a vote
of 4 to 2. This we suppose ends the
chanter. Had her claims been sustained.
