The Cincinnati Gazette of St-pt 3 says :?A week ago, Mr J^ry H **cCord, a gentU-man who baa leojj reaidet- tn tbii city, and was well known aaf uinctayateemed by a large circle of friends aaC acquaintance*, Nturned to hia home, and after partaking ef a hearty supper, suddenly fell to the tloor, aa If attacked with a fainting fit He waa immediately carried into an adjoining room and laid on a sofa, and a physician summoned aa sooa as pgeaiMe. The physician pronounced Ma daagerouily ill, andalter leaving some medicine, ^avt- positive order* that he should not be disturbed until morning; bnt during the night Mr McCord grew better, and, despH* the mandate of the doctor, he arose from the sofa and vnlked to hia chamber. The following morning be vai taken with a violent entasis and convulsions, and grew gradually worse during tbe dav. and when the physician called aga'.n and noted bit changed condition, be left word that no one aave bit immediate attendants should be admitted into the room; but not withstanding all precaution, Mr. McCord constantly grew worse, and about 6 o'clock Tuesday evening, surrounded by his family and friends, he died in a spasm Tbe funersl ceremonies were arranged to take place tbe following Tuesday morning, and a few moments before the minister commenced tbe performance of the last sad rites, a messenger appeared in the chamber of death and placed a letter in tbe bands of a son of the deceased, which stated that his father bad been poisoned. directly accusing his wife and a man named Wasbburne. Tbe letter was signed "Your friend, William ." Of coiirae, a document bearing such horrible intelligence, and charging tbe son In the memory of his dead father to Investigate tbe matter, almost unnerved him; but be b^ard the service through and paid tbe last tribute of respect which | a child can pav a parent, and after returning from the grave arquatnUd the family with the contents of the letUr be bad received. Tbe mother denied that she had any agency in tbe matter, and chided her boy for giving crcdence to a letb r which she said had been written to injure her Friday following. I.awrence Alberger went to the Police Court and cansfd a warrant to be issued for the arrest of Kmily McCord and Jerome Washhurne, charging them with poisoning the deceased. The Instrument was placed In the hands of Chief of Police Wilson, wt?o, instead of harrnwintr thf> In<r? nf tli** fnmilw v??? ? fc- ? uj uiu**!!!* the teruiird publi. fy to the station-house, allowed the wife * remain at houie under the surveiilsnre of an officer. The nme course wai pursued toward! Washburne. The following morning they were taken before the Police Court anH held to bail In the mm of 85,(HX> for their appearance from day to day. I On Friday afternoon Ccroner Carey, in company I with the physician who had attended upon Mr. | McCord. visited the graveyard and exhumed the | body, took from It the stomach, and placvd it in the hands of Prof ssor Wayne for cbemlc&l anal's's. There are, of course, a hundred rumors concerning the melancholy aflair, to which we give no heed We have It on positive authority that Washburne's visits to the house of Mr McCord were made against the latter'* expressed wishes, and have several times given rise todon.e>ilc disturbances Professor Wayne has not yet reported the result of the Investigations. So soon as he shall have finished bit labors the efl'air will be judicially examined.

W ith this so improved as to have the canal seveD fe? t in depth, and able to ar commodate vessels of live or six hundred ton*, it is drained certain that a great and continually Increasing trade will spring up between Western Virginia and tbe Empire of France, whtreby the latter will receive from the former the greater portion cf the vast supplies of Iron, coal, and timber which her manufactures annually require. The capital stock of tbe new company is large, we believe twenty millions of dollars Although the contemplat "d imfirovement will have several powerful rivals, in be Haltimore and Ohio railroad and Pennsylvania and New York roads and canals, yet sucbare the advantages claimed fur tbe Virginia canal, by reason of milder climate and other circumstance*, that it is confidently believed the tonnage can be reduced from the present rate of four cents per ton to one-ninth or one-tenth of the same.
