Tho office I shall ioon resign (In cntnr upon other avocation) I hop may pass into hands more competent than I have been to discharge its various lutio;--it is one of great responsibility, often attended with embarrassment to the occupant, especially diirin" tho session of our County Courts when" tho Clerk is called upon nlmm-t timultaneously to meet the calls of the Grand Jury,--rmpannelling a Pitil-Jury, administering oalht to parties and witnesses, calls for files and papers, entering Docket or other minutes answering question and endeavoring to satisfy suitors in court, with various other duties, which your well known acquaintance will leadily acknowl edge, ami all requiring, 10 r.iv mu iur. great patience. I nm cwaro that in these ns well as oilier duties, errors may liavo Iieon committed by rue. but I can truly ray, tlmy have never been intentional, nnd vour gciuirntis forbearance, has ever been extended, toenvor those errors nnd defects.

Herring, of Ten neiBCC, who had murdered his own son, nnd had boon found guilty nl'maiulaughtor, was sentenced to be branded on I lie hand with the teller M , imprisoned for eighteen month', nnd pay a fine of $5000, nnd the costs of the peosecutioti. StNOur.Att Dki.u.-uon. Tho barn of Co lonol Eiisha Hull, New Haven, was do-s-troyud by fire on Saturday, 24th nit. A young man by the name of I'lnit, deaf and dumb, nnd uiso deranged, acknowledges by signs and writing, that ho set I he barn on fire; that ho had conceived the notion ol going to heaven, a Elijah of old, in u chariot of fire; that he set fire to the hay nnd laid down by the side of it, expecting lo bo tvafted upward-); but. the fire scorch cd him so that, his faith failed, nnd ho was induced lo leave the chariot and escape on fool ! FRIDAY M6ltN ING, JANUARY 87. It will be soon by reference to the cor respondence in another column, that Mr IIaswuMj has resigned the office of Coun ty Clerk ; nnd wo learn that tho vacancy has been supplied bv tho appointment of William Noble, Esq. of Charlotte. Mr. H. it seems has served tho public in this office for nearly sixteen years embracing a period of unusual political excitement nnd now voluntarily retires under ciretim stances alike houorablu to himself and gratifying to his friends. Of the csiima lion in which Ins official services are held by thnse who could best appreciate them the resolution of tho Bar is an honorable testimonial; and we can wilh pleasure add that we have never heard even an impu tation against his official integrity. It is iriliv irratifvini' lo sec official relations of credit to all parlies. Aim in nutnuuu iu this, the simple fact of a man's voluntary resigning an office of profit, is a circum stance which ought not to overlooked in estimating the patriotism of the present day. The example is a good one, and if i he spirit which prompted it, was more prevalent, we should hear vastly less com plaint than wo now do about octogenary office-holders. There am times anil places for all things stations Tor all men but no office for any one man always. This is the republican creed, according to our text bonk. The northern Van Huron etatos are about to realize ihe benefits ofthfir slavish subserviency to party. It is perfectly ap parent, i lint. Mr Van Buren assumes the fact I hat he is Mire of Maine, N. Hnmpehirn and New York, under any circuui-tances--wit limit rogaid to measure. Iu tliffC state.) "parly machinery" is all powerful lo quiet any misgivings about measures, and it now only remains for our glorious 'northern President" to sccuro the South by at once "falling in with Southern mcas tires. Hence Iho present surrender of protection to northern industry. What a conoling reflection it is, thai we have got northern President ! There is some difference of opinion, as to the probable fate of the tariff bill. The more general belief is that it will not be definitely acted upon the present session.

Thk Sokpi.us. Much has been f.said in tho Administration papers, nf the necessity of ruducing the TarifT, in ordor lo prevent the accumulation of surplus funds in the Treasury; and those unacquainted with the facts, might well suppose, from their remarks on this subjeC, that tho whole of the surplus now to be divided among the several States, had been raised by oppres sive, taxation upon the people, (in the form of custom-house duties) and that unless tho TarifT should bo reduced, tho same ac cumulation will 0!?ain take place. But what is the true slate of the case I his fund is principally iho avails of our great land capital, converted into money and not revenue, in the ordinary nccoptalion if the term, an arising from imposts nnd taxes. Not less than thiiitv-five mil lions of tliu balance now in the Treasury, has nrion from the sales of public lands SINCE THE PAYMENT UP THE NATIONAL iiEiiT (within the two Inst years) lor ihc payment of which, 'these lands were pledg ed. This sum, at least, then, instead of having "been drawn from Iho pockets of the people, merely lo be returned to them, again," may be considered un inheritance gained by tho toil and blood of our revolu tionary fathers, and bequeathed to us, their children now unincumbered and free. And there tines not appear lo bo nny no ccssily for roducing the Tariff, in order to prevent tho accumulation feared as it was slated in the report of tho Secretary of the Treasury, ot the commencement of the present session, that the estimated cxpen. scs of the present year are 27,000.000, while iho receipts are estimated at 24.000, 000, about G.'OOO.OOO of this sum Wing the proceeds of the public lands. Had Mr. ('lay'.-' 'Laud Bill, which passed both Houses by n largo majority, and wan vetoed by the 'President, become n law, the dis tribution of the proceeds of tlio'public lands among the States would havo prevented the accomulatinii of tho surplus; and ihc passage of a similar bill now, would doubt less be more acceptable lo the people, tlmn the project brought forward by the Van Buren leaders, of prostrating the manufac Hiring interest of tho country, in violation too of the Compromise Act of 1034. Mr Van Ness, it seems, is not coming home, after allunless he should again be a candidate for congress, in which case the Sentinel will have him "halfway across Iho Allnntic," instantcr. Our .Minisler to Spain, General Eatos, was el ill, at the dale of the last tidiicei.

The btorm of Saturday nijjhl and Sunday appears to have been .1 very impartial one for we hear similar accounts of it in all di rectinns. It is generally admitted In he tho severest we have had for many years. In this vicinity, the snow is literally pilci mnuii'.aitis high, and llie interruption tobu sinem has been very serious. Some ot our hou-es ot worship were not opened nl all on Sunday, &. not afewofour business men who had,,drawn"close on Sat urday, found iheinselves with large deposits in bank on Monday morning. Things have very much improved however, and Ihe spires of most of the churches are now visible. We learn that n young man named Thompson, son of Col. Luke Thompson of this town, came near perishing in attempt, ing to cross the Lake on foot in the storm of Sunday last. His companion was com. polled to leave him about two miles from the New York shore and when he returned with assistance, found him in a helpless condition his arms and legs evorely froz en. He is enid to be in a very critical con. dition. Ti:xas. It beciiis that Gen. JJoustou ta king oxamplo of Iho Hero of Ihrco Wars, pronounced his veto on a hill passed by Iho Texas Legislature, in relation lo Santa Anna. Tho Legislature (hen re-enacted tho bill by a vote of two. thirds, which nullified Iho vclo But Iloubton having tho army witii him, re fused to acknowledge tlioir authority. Tho pour members hoving aothing but the Constitution and Laws on thoir sido werejeom polled lo submit. It was t-aid in a South ern paper that Santa Anna is to pay Houston $ 100,000 for his liberation.! ! ! ! Tho Portsmouth Journal, alluding to tho great quantity of grain manufactured into whukey in this country, which has n direct tendency to continue, and perhaps incroaso tho picsont high prices of broad, says : "A fow days since not a singlo bushel of Hyc could bo obUined in ibis toWn. It is a fact which ilcservos logislalivo inlerforanco that man v portions of our country aro suffer Ing from tho waul of bread slutTs, while tho larjo dinlilhuiu aro soizini; upon vast quan tities of tho best of grain, und usinr it for n much worso purposo than coiniriillin g it to tho llaincs.

Wo boliovo a hill is now boforo tho legisla -turo of Massachusetts, to prohibit tlio distilla tion of grain Somo measure of llils kind is loudly called for. Wu notice that tho last arrivals or mrign ryo at N. York , wore imino. diatcly taknn by Iho distillers at $1,45, per biihhel. In his annual movsage the President do j

clnred as follows : The unexpended balances of nnnrnpria- tion. on the lt day of January next, arc estimated at $$I4,C3G,GG2. exceeding by 9,. uju,uu-: i no amount winch win ou lett in the depnsito banks, subject to the draft of the treasurer or the United Slates, nfier the contemplated transfers lo the several States nro made. If, therefore, the future receipts should not be sufficient lo meet those out ttnndins and future appropriations, there maybe soon a necessity to use a por Hon of the funds deposited icith the States. Iloro is a caution lo Iho States not to make loo sure of their depoito money, since there is a possibility of tho Treasury being emptied of all its cash. Is it to be supposed for a moment thnt the Tory sec tion of I he committee or Ways nnd Meant) had overlooked all these things, when they recommended a sudden reductioti of seven million por annuni, particularly 09 the President has also characterised an nbrupt modification of the Tariff ns "a sudden and destructive 'revuhion in the business of the country"! For our part, the more wo ro lled upon the matter, lbs stronger is our conviction that, Mr. Carhbreleng's bill, is a juggle and a hiimbug, which the party dare not, and do not mean to pass, but which is'brought forward to cover some dirty and sinister design which the mann. gers are ashamed openly to avow.
