The serenade bad not bffn publicly announced, or the crowd would ha^e been immense. A> it win some forty or fifty gentlemenwere present, mostly visitor* from the North and Northwest. Withers'* Band was in attendance, and discoursed most eloquent mo sir to the night. Tie party, having been invited into the bouse, was received with the most cordial courtesy by the distinguished gentleman in who?e honor the serenade wa* given After the usual interchange of congratulations, the dining hall was thrown open, and a splendid collation spread before the ntie*petted but welcome quests. The choice liquors and viands were freely discussed; and nothing occurred to mar the general festivity. The Northwest having been proposed. Dr. Lieb. of Illinois, rose to reply. He pledged his sec Hon of country In support of Democracy, as represented by the Administration. He declared that he ws* but a single mouth-piece of thousand* of true henrts. that would cling till death to the futon and the Constitution He made some very hippy hits, and fully confirmed, on this occasion, the high reputation wUic.h he has earned upon the stump. r? The Southern press was then toasted, and .Mr. Bargy of this city, was called for. He spoke in Complimentary te*rnis of the gallant Northwest ern Democracy He said that it was upon occa sions like the present that Southern and Northern men best learned to know each other, nnd he de clared that the Southern press would always be with the voices that could utter, and the hands that could carry out the noble sentiineuts pro claimed by his friend from Illinois. Col Savage, tn an able and eloquent strain, re sponded to a toast in honor of Tennessee He said that the present social intercourse was mere ly a type of the great bonds of common feeling, which, in despite of faction and violence, would still hind together the most opposite sections of the country. Mr. McDowsll, of Pennsylvania, represented tb? Keystone rotate, in an excellent speech and a rno*t appropriate song. Other toasts were given and responded to by eloquent gentlemen, among whom we may in -<t\4?c? Judge Marshall, of III., Mr. Robinson, of Ohio, and Mr. Woodbury, of N H. The ladies, too, gathered in the adjacent par lors nnd drawing-rooms, lent to the scene that interest which is derived only from the fair. Take it all In all, this serenade, gotten up by gentlemeu from every part of the country uniting in honor of an eminent statesman, was the most lnlliant affair of the kind that has thus far oc curred during the season Cmw?5ll'? ?About 7 o'clock vester day uiorpiug, the body of a man was discovered floating in the canal at the foot of Ninth street went. It was taken out and conveyed to the Cen tral Guard House, where a jury was summoned, and an inquest disclosed the following facts. The deceased was Gen. David Newland of She boygan, Wisconsin, but formerly of North Caro lina, wMK he ran for Congress, was defeated, and congested the seat of his opponent. Mr Newland was formerly Speaker of the House of Delegatesof Wisconsin. lie had been iu Washington some live or six months, acting a? agent, it is understood, for various parties who were applying for office. He has been latterly in very straitened pecuniary circumstances, and this fact probably gave rise to the suspicion that he deliberately* put an end to his existence, but the facts elicited l*:fore the jury seemed to indicate that his death was accidental, and the jury brought iu a verdict accordingly The. papers upou his person were not wet through, indicating that he had been but a short time in the water when discovered Among these papers was a Free Mason's diploma of twenty years' standing, and the body wa- accordingly taken charge of by itiemhers of the Order and conveyed to their hall on Ninth street, from whence he was buried at 0 o'clock this morning. Ii is high time something was done with that infernal man-trap, the city canal. Let it either Im- filled up, (--a consummation devoutly to be wished,") arched over, or railed in, a? Is the rase with Jones' Tails In Baltimore. We won der the city fathers are not afraid to cro?s the ca nal after night fall, lest they should be confronted by some of the pale spectres of the drowned, who. If there be any truth in ghost stories, must hover over its turbid waters in squadrons ! [COMXtMICATICD. The Case of Donnelly?Mr. Editor: Allow me, through the medium of your widely circu lating paper, to give expression to the deep sympathy entertained by myself, ill common with many others, for the unfortunate Don nelly, now under sentence of death. Here he received his collegiate education?here be gradu ated as physician, and long resided among us, and surely the doubts ot his uuilt, and the pity for bis situation felt by hundreds of our cit izens. should not remain unspoken. The cir cumstantial evidence is, indeed, strong. But, it iniy be a?ked. has not circumstantial evidence time and again proven fallacious. Even when it tirst, it had seemed more conclusive and over whelming than in the present case' Facts an swer, Yes. Is it, then, unreasonable, when the only oositivecvidence against hiin, is that of a re puted Atheist, when a large number of those who ; ead th?* repoits of the case. I?elieve blm innocent, wb*?n those who knew him best are strongest in that twlief,? when his trial has taken place in a community where Moses w*s known, out where his al.e^ed imirde. er was a stranger, when doubts tiave arisen on all sides of the fairness of that trial, and when one-third of the judges to whom he appealed have de?-ided in favor of a new one, is it unreasonable to ask t he intervention of the Executive, to save him from what mat/ be an un merited doom ? Purely not. Out suppose him scullty?how many extenuating circumstances arise to plead in bis behalf. Young, talented, well-educated, his previous life was blameless He is no hardened criminal. True bis connec tions ar? not wealthy or influential, but poverty soothes not the grief of an ai?ed father, nor di>es i! le-?.-en the pangs of a fond sister's heart It is to 'e* hoped that the*e considerations will have their full weight with his excellency the Gover nor of New Jersey, and joined witti the reason able doubts of Donnelly's guilt, will procure for him some mitigation of his punishment.

Thb Rbvisbd Codb.?The true and practical question for the people of this District to deter mine If, whether the Revised Code as now sub mitted. with the opportunity of securing proper Amendments hereafter, is not better than our present confuted and wretched body of laws. As we have before stated, it is not to be expected that a body of law* running through some seven hundred pages, will, in every particular, receive the unqualified approbation of any person. No code which the assembled wisdom and experi ence of the world could produce, would ever be so fortunate as that. A law of the simplest na ture, and of meHgTe details, is seldom passed through even a deliberative legislature unani mously. The true question for the people to de termine is, whether, when this code is adopted, we will not have a better system of laws than the present? The proposed code is to be weighed against the present law, and not against perfer tfon. Every man is to determine for himself whether the code as proposed, notwithstanding the various points of private objection he may have to the same, is not manifestly superior to the present body of the law, each being taken as a whole. This Code is subjected to an ordeal, through which no Code In any civilised community has heretofore passed. Prepaid first under the super vision of the Attorney General's oifir.e, it had to l>e submitted afterwards toa bodyofeightgentieiuen, most if not all of them lawyers, selected by the Corporations of Washington and Georgetown, a ad by the Levy Court. That has already been done, as we are Informed in the preliminary note, and the Code has received their unanimous approval. Amongst these gentlemen are at l<-ast several who stand deservedly hiffh in their profession In addition to this, the Cone has to be submitted to a vote of the people. We think we are safe in stating that no such thing was ever heard of be fore in any coiumuuity it Is a test more thorough ly severe than any Code has heretofore been sub jected to. An appeal is made to a tribunal where the opportunity of misrepresentation, in the first instance at least, is gtVst?nn opportunity which we are sorry to state, parties have availed them selves of, in this instauce. If the Bible even, as a code of morals, was submitted to a vote of the people, bow much clamor would l>e gotten up against it ? After a vote of the people has been obtained upon the Code, It is then to be reported to Con gress for their action. It is there to be subjected first to the scrutiny of two judiciary committees, and to public discussion afterwards, if reported by the committees, in the halls of legislation. If there be improper provisions in the Code, it is easy to show them to the judiciafy committees, and they can there be stricken out. Any member of Congress on the floor can move to strike out anv objectionable feature, even if the committees refuse to do so. The whole control of the matter is vested in Congress, and they can add or sob tract, or modify an they please It is not Incum bent 0:1 Congress to adopt it as a whole, and we doubt not, even if the Code were to receive the unanimous up pi oval of the people. Congress would listen to any proper and well-supported application for any modification We ask again. Is it the part of wisdom to re fuse to accept the very many admitted improve ments contained in the Code, because of an objection to a provision here and there, when every opportunity is allowed hereafter to pro? ure a repeal or modification of such objectionable provision? " India* Delegations?This morning, a dele gation of sixteen Pawnee Indians from the re gion of the Platte ri\*er arrived In this city, and took lodgings at Mrs Mttber's, corner of Thir t?*nth-and-a-b?lf and F, streets They were in full costume and attracted much attention The delegation consists of fonr from each of the Grand.
