I'rice 6 cruu*. Tito liRlt Horrible Murder at Rahway. We devote a considerable space to-day to the de tails of" the late horrible murder at Railway, fu which the alleged murderer is now on his trial a Newark, New Jersey. Take it altogether, it is one of the most singula murders we have had in this part of the country since the murder of Suydam by Peter Robinson nnd what renders it still more mysterious, is ill fact that one ot the principal witnesses is suppose to be ms deeply implicated in the affair as the pri soner himself. Is in the case of Robinson, no one saw the inui tier committed, and the whole proof rests upon cit cumstantial evidence. It was a cruel and blood murder, and we think there is little doubt of the pri sutler's guilt. The Hull keeps Rolling?Another Tremen dous .Heeling of the People to sustain tin Executive of the I'iiIoh?The OI?l Demo era tie Klghth Ward Wide Awake! The friends of the President residing in the 8tl Ward, turned out last evening in great strength t< approvt of his democratic course, in rejecting th< mad S'hemes of the Clay whigs. They met at th old head quarters, " Davis's Long Rooms," and tha immense Hall was tilled to its utmost limits. The resolutions were decidedly democratic i their tone, and each one was received with tremer dous applause, and when the question wus put upoi thein, they were adopted without a dissenting voice Tlicj approve most heartily of the action of th Piesident, and condemn in terms not to be misun derstood, the whole course of the ultra whigs i their continued attempts to thwart the wishes o the people, hy forcing upon the Executive scheme which they well know he cannot approve. This wa. the most decidedly democratic meeting that liu yet hern held; and it may in fact be considered flit commencement of a series of democratic meeting' throughout the country in favor of the President. There was a ridiculous attempt made by a hand l'ul of unruly and disorganizing individuals, to irn juise upon the meeting resolutions which had no con nection whatever with the case; but they greatl; mistook the feeling that existed. They were pu down almost unanimously. We learn that these peaceable gentlemen, aftei the regular meeting had adjourned and dispersed organized anew, but what was done we know not. and no one need care The resolutions will appeal at a future day. Tit'. .Takvis Cask ?In our account ."f the divorce roe. tU granted by the Legislature of Connectionon tli vlie.uion of Mrs. Jarvis, we were misled 1>\ -hiii rrors in one of the newspapers. The member of the Legislature unanimously and spontaneous ly expressed their deep sym|>athy for this much injured, high minded, and amiable lady, awarded het >i?oo |u-r annum, instead of $400, which the l)r. limited his means at, and would have given hei mue i more, had they not taken into consideration the Doctor's alleged inability to contri bute more. Hut in addition to this sum the) also awarded her the whole of her whole paternn inheritance, her lather having died during the see sion of the Legislature. This was itself sulTieient evidence of the liigl estimation in which the Assembly held tli< conduct and character of Mrs. Jarvis; but ii addition to nil this, Mr. Blackinan the chair tn.in of the committee, and Mr. Billings, hot! addressed letters to the daughters, expressive id their great regard for the pure and unblemishei conduct of Mrs. Jarvis throughout this melanchoh business, nnd also deeply condoling with the daughter-, leannette and Christine.and expressing a sincer< il-sire to see ihent re-united, with all the afiectioi of their early childhood, in which hope we also sin ciT'dy join. It is a ssd thing to see two such youm. ladies separated from each oilier, or either separated from the mother ; and we trust that I>. Jarviwill have sufficient manliness left to see this brough about. Whatever might formerly have been tie opinion of prejudiced persons, there is but one belief now that had the I>octor behaved towards hei like a kind hearted husband, all the difficulties between t hem would have been prevented. However we have no wish to reproach him now ; the thing i aettled, and the lady comes out of this fiery ordes with her character brighter than ever, and witl those qn tlities that will secure for her the sweet en dearments of a large circle of the warmest friends Fa vw Ki.ssi.er?Quite an incident occurred ii Philadelphia at the departure of Fanny, from the wharf It appears that hercoach reached the wharl too late for her to cross the river in the passage boat, and lor a while it was feared she would be unabb-to reach the opposite {shore in time for tin New N ork train of ears, which would likewise proluldv have prevented her taking passage in tin steamer for Ktigland.

[CorfMl>ondrnce ofthe Herald.] Tin r<day, July 14rh, 3 o'clock. At the closeof yesterday's ?e?.-ion, John Quiucy ] Vdanis renewed hi- motion lor the following branch it of the resolution concerning the United State* ami ' fex.i.-, ol which we spoke yeaterday. After some ill. iiij'la at circumvention, it was adopted. It 1 runs as follows:? ^ "Also, copies of all correspondenee between the Governments of the United States and Texas, since the last communication ot the President to Coni gress, relating to that Kepublic; and of anv proclaI illations of the President thereof, declaring his deter initiation to invade the Mexican Republic, and inviting the co-operation of the citizens of I ha United States in such intended invasion. And the President is requested to inform this House whether any, , and, il anv, wh it notice has been taken by the I 'x eeutive of the United States of the said proclamation ol the President of Texas." The Senate was some time occupied with a inesi sage from the President, in reply to Mr. Preston's - resolution, callingfor information regarding our afe lairs with Mexico and Texas. il At two they went into Executive Session, i Wsterdav the nomination of -Mr. Birch to an office in Missouri, was rejected, in addition to those already enumerated. The House went almost immediately' into Com,r mittee of the Whole on the General Tariff Bill. Lt Mr. Kim,.mokb'? resolution to reduce the duty on iron in hars or bolts not manufactured, in whole or r in part from rolling, trom S1H to #17 per ton, was >f the question pending. ; A motion of Mr. Edwards of Pennsylvania, to e amend the amendment by striking out #17 and ind sorting #'25 was rejected; as was another from Mr. i- Cooper, to strike out #17 and insert 20 per cent ad valorem; and one by Mr. Black to insert 21 per cent r- atl valorem; besides several others, r- The question being taken on Mr. Fillmore's y amendment by tellers, it was adopted, ayes 77, i- nays 57. Mr. Cave Johnso* moved to strike out the proviso " exempting railroad iron on proof of its having - been actually laid down prior to the 3d of March, v IS 13, hut making it after that date subject to the . same duty as rolled iron," and to insert a proviso laying a duty on all imported railroad iron, which shall not have been ordered previous to the 15th ol ' the present month. ' Mr. Black's motion, further to amend, by making i th? duty on railroad iron20 per eeut ad valorem, , being rejected, the question was taken on Mr. Cave Johnton's amendment, which was also rejected; as ' was, after a few objections by Mr. Fillmore, Mr Roosevelt's motion to amend by striking out the n whole proviso, and substituting " 30 per cent ad valorem," instead of #30 per ton on bar or bolt iron, made whollv or in part by rolling, n The Tariff debate was going on when our letter closed. It is the current report at the Capitol, and that on substantial authority, that the North Eastern Boun' Jury question is fully and honorably settled. ii The fhrenf r?f Mr mnv entitle him fn n vnt?< ij fp>ni both houses of the best strait jacket that can be ni .de in the republic. It is universally pitied, as a sad ebullition ot local, as well as political jealousy ~ and rancor?a neighbor's fierce quarrel, which is ever the most bitter The articles of the intended impeachment, which appeared in this morning's Intelligencer, are literally full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. If any of them prove any thing, it is only that fohn Tyler may not be altogether a whig ; which does not appear to he an im|>eachuble offence?at least, so very able constitutional lawyers have ven1 lured to conjecture. t The Theatre in this city has generally proved ruinous to all concerned. \Vashington evenings are >-,tiher set apart for caucusing in one way ar another ' ?either by Congressional clubs to manoeuvre political armies on the day ensuing at the Capitol, or b) lesser coteries to create influences for office or some imilar personal aspiration, fn short there is too much private acting going on, to leave any chances for the public stage. And were it othewise, (if re ent specimens are to be considered a fair sample.) here is a negligence in the police of the establish- < nent, quite sufficient to deter any one with self resiect, or who desires to hear what passes on the cene, from wasting hours and money where profligacy the most shameless and reckless, can war and , -int unchecked. Still, now and then there is something shown vhich merits success; and if such displays seldom ind a return proportioned to their trouble and ex- i nee, still they may not pass utterly without appre< iation. We arc led to this remark by a few recent repre- 1 icntations of Mr Booth. f.a-it night that tragedian performed Sir Edward Vfi)f. nnt>r In ti linn linnan nnrt nnrlpr pvpru nnouiltlp lisadvantage. The fortunes of the play of which Sir Edward i^ the hero, have been as chequered as those of that leroe's present representative. It (ailed when riginnlly attempted by John Philip Kemble, at Omry Lane, in the winter of 17fdi; which drew , 'orth the far tamed preface from Coieman, where mi Kemble was |so unsparingly satirized. In the timmer of the same year, when Elliston was eginning his eareerat tlie author's own theatre, in "lie London Haymarket, the young actor dared te I idventure in the character ana triumphed. But at that time, some of Storace's music, which the >iece contained, formed one of its most tempting at- J tractions. Yet it never arose to sterling rank until perhaps t vonty years subsequently Kean proved it.-. t apabilities at Lkrury Lane aguin. Thenceforward, the musical portion has by degrees disappeared. It is now u standard play of the stars of the stage. We confess we did not expect much when we -itrolled in to see Booth act the principal part in it tst evening: but we must own we have never seen other that character, or Booth, in his palmiest days, with more unmixed delight. The perturbations'ot i spirit generous and grand by nature, and idolizing opularity, but racked with a heavy and agonizing md damning secret, and jealously and unslumber- I ingly on the alert for symptoms ot its being suspect ed, were pictured with the genius and the pywer o! i master. So was the whirlwind of despair at the withering secret's final detection. There was variety and truth in the artist's enunciation and atti'udes and countenance, and these qualities were arried even to the expression of the hands, which, ould it have been disjoined from that of the re?t of lis person, at any one point of the passion, would, a' t glance, have disclosed to an instructed eve the Hercules in his art. This manual eloquence (if we nay venture sueh a phrase) escapes imitation even in painting and sculpture hv mediocrity, hut if ever -tudied as equally precious and difficult liy those who know how to excel. Lust evening Mr. Booth dismayed it with sutpassing skill. A countryman of our own mentioned a singular ineedote indirectly connected with the plav we have >een noticing, and which was told him in England >y the celebrated Godwin. Observed Lord Byron o the veteran, "give the world another Caleb Williams," (the novel of Godwin on which the Iron Chest was founded.) "My Lord, 1 suffered as severely in imagining Caleb Williams as anv character whose agonies I have described. Another work ike that would kill me." "No matter?write it," -eplied Byron. North Eastkrn Bot ndary.?It is stated that apt. T.ilcott and his surveying party north of tin h. John, have been recalled, while the pa~ty south r f the river will-continue tli?-ir topographical sur vey. This is supposed by some not only to indicate, t ut to prove that the Boundary Question has been igreed upon. I Cask of Coi.t?By letters from 1'tica we under1 -<talid that the bill of exceptions taken in the trial o( , Tohn C. Colt, was argued before the Supreme Court < it I'tica on Wednesday, by Messrs.

It was named, how ever, in the assignment, (w hich she says she did not read) and the plea of forgery, iu con?e<|Ui nee, stopped. The question then was, had she been notified of protest on the l#th or on the 17th October, as the latter would be too late. The jury could not agree, and were discharged.

In September of last year it wai taken by Nlr. Achilles V. Hammond, w ho suppose 1, as every body else did, that he would o on rapi lly making a fortune. He was soon joined by plaintiff who parsed as his clerk, but in December bought him out, and the concern has proved to thcin a ruinous one. In January the defendant was employed by Messrs. Uillard to serve an execution against effects in* the Hall, for groceries furnished to Hammend. The plaintiff replevinvd, and now brings action.

The Court charged that rent mone\ must be paid ot any rate. If a tenant had a claim, he must bring a cross action; and if he abuses a house, he is bound to pay for it. The jury were at liberty, in astimating damages, to take into comidera'ion those claimed by defendant, and, so far as they thought proper, to place them in offset.

Jl lv 16.?Sentence of Charlai F. Mitchell.?It being announced in the Herald of yesterday that this somewhat notorious forger was to be sentenced, the court room u a1crowded to excess, and as soon as the Record, r took his seat he ordered that Charles K. Mitchell be brought into court to receive the sentence of the law . All eyes were now turned towardsthe entrance from the inside corri.lor, an 1 in a few minutes he appeared, accompanied by officer Silver, and took his sent in the prisoner's box. He looked much more healthy and strong than when upon his trial, and had all the appearance of the enjoyment of excellent health. He was dressed in a blue coat, with dress buttons, buft vest, light pants, white hat, ri-llai turned over a in Hyron, his boots unblacked, and his face unshared. The clerk of the court called him to the witness stand, to deliver the usual oath preceding sentence, to ascertain the occupation of prisoner. He faltered at first, hut on taking the oath, answered that he was a miller bv occupation. He then stepped hack, and stated that he bad a request or a petition to make to the court. That he did not know that the court w as Aware of all the circumstances attending his return to thiscitv, and that if not, this might have some bearing upon the case before they proceeded to pass sentence. He said he had proceeded to return to this city, voluntarily, for the purpose of delivering himself up to the Court,"and was on his way as far as Philadelphia when he was arrested and brought hero in custody. That his absence from New York and the placo where he had located himself, within about four miles of ZanesviUe, Ohio, was known to two of the members of the court, the Re order and Judge Noah, to whom he had written, and which he presumed they hail received ; that he had also sent them advertisement of his business which he wnengaged in at that place, and had been ready at any timto repair hither to receive the sentence of the law ; tha' when he left this city his object was to go there and endea vor to earn something to enable him to sustain the exceptions taken in his case before the Supreme Court ; tha' whilethere he had not at'empted to disguise himself, but was not in the streets and vicinity of/anesvillc as CliarleK. Mitchell, He did not consider himself a fugitive from iustice while there, but presumed that the argument ol the cause before the Supreme Court in this city could g( >11 as well in his absence as if he had been present, lb therefore asked the Court to suspend sentence for a short itne, in order that he might make some disposition of tin emuants of his oflects, in order to aid in sustaining hi "ainily. This was all he desired, nothing more. That lie was now in custody,and no danger could exist of hi* escape, which he did not desire, as he was more anxion ban nny living man of seeing the end of the matter, and le asked this favor of the Court as a matter of simple jusice. He then stepped back into the prisoner's box, and bilged mother approached liis side and clasped or.e of hb lands. The RKconnr.it then said that the Court had considered lis present situation, and the circumstances attending his ecenti|return to this city, as also the contents of a romnunication they had received from him that morning; but hat as it was the lust day of *he term, they were compel d to deliver the sentence ol the law. They would order, hat time sufficient be given him to airange his family afairs l-efore he was sent to the State Prison. Mitciism. replied that he was not aware that it was thi nd of the term, or he should not have made the request >f the Court. The Clerk then asked him what he had to say why entenco should not be passed upon him according t< law? Mitchell replied that he supposed the question asked was more as a matter of form than otherwise. That wen le prepared, or had he time to prepare, a statement of th ertain facts, ho could present a new aspect to the case >ut he did not suppose it was necessary, as the Court had >efore them sufficient to justify the sentence, and hi hotild submit with due humiliation to the resultof theii lecision. The Rccoriikr then stated that he had been found ruilty of forgery in the third degree by a jury of his coun ry, and that on a review of the trial before the Supremi 'ourt,they had sent it back with directions for the Conn i) proceed to judgment. It therefore became their duty i pass the sentence of the law, however painful such senence might be to the members of the Court or the mem ers of the family of prisoner. That it was not necesary for the Court to harrow up feelings of distress iy extended remarks as to the crime for which le was to suffer, as his time of life, his cducatiifli and forier situation in societv all combined to add to his owa lacrated feelings, a sufficient wound without additional re,--I rf. ,1... .L 1 if .1 i ...o mull ill Hill, (it'imi.

From these con,derations alone, and not from his previous station in soci ty would the sentence of the law tie mitigated. They here-fore had coacludcd to sentence him to three years coriinement in the State prison, which was the sentence 01 he court. The mother of prisannr remained by his side with his laud clinched in her own until th eRecorder had finished, vhen they were allowed to enter the jury room adjoining or a few minutes, Irom whence he returned and proceeded ;o the city prison. Paring the remarks of th<i llecor lor we noticed many m eye streaming v, 'th tears, and from the furrowed faces if those w ho are rarely mo. ed at such a scene as the senonce of n | risoner. It was in the power of the Court to have extended the entence of the law to five years or red it ceil it to two. firanii I.arc my for Money.?John Mahar, a young, deepy looking Irishman, aged about 20 years, was tried on i chargeof grand larceny for stealing $1S0 In gold and ?200 in hills of the Central Rail Road Bank of Oeorgia, it >eing the property of a person named James Heaney, who 'warded in the house with prisoner at thetimeoftne lar eny. Heaney testified that on the tth inst., after seeing he cell'.ration about town, he returned to his lodgings. So 41 Washington street, and being fatigued he laid down ipon prisoner's bed to rest. On awaking about fi o'cloek n the evening, he ascertained that his pockets had been clicved of the above named amount, and prisoner having eft the house the next morning, suspicion was excited igainsthia. Upon being imMn the nib, m4ntrlt all he gold coin, was f und in his possession, some of which .vas identified by the complainant Heaney, as well as the uns wmcn nan ocen purchased ny the latter a lew days previous of Mr. Dully. the keeper of the boarding house, rhe jury found him guilty, and the Court sent liimto the State prison for three years. Miliar, the prisoner, induced t young girl to marry him a few days after he committed be larceny of the money; had placed his new wife in snug juarters, where he was arrested, and where the greater ,iart of the money wns found in the bridal bed, snugly la d between the mattrass and seeking liottom. Rubbery and Ih-uggery.?A young man named Daniel Laverv, impleaded with another named Thomas Quinn, a as tried on a charge of grand larceny in robbing a young Irishman named Michael Norton of his clothing, and 38 ;overeigns, that was in a bell around his body. Norton stifled that on the evening of the tith instant, about ten >'clock, while ho was in search of >'o. 31} Monroe street, ie met Lav cry and Huinn in the street, and asked them to liri-rt lnni to the house desired, at the sama time informagthem that he was a stranger in the city. They went \ ith him, and on reaching the premises asked him to take "drink, which he accepted, hut paid for it himself. Soon fterwards they left together, ami the reqne-l to drink was epeated by them at another porter house, and he there '.rank some root beer. In a few minute* after Norton brume sick and lost all reoollertion of any further cirrumtanees until the nest morning, when he found himself in he basement of the house of an acquaintance, named Mcslynn, at 69 J Cherry street, entirely stripped of jail his lothing except shirt and vest, as well as his money. Mr. McOlynn stated that Norton was brought to hi? house on he morning above named by several person*, .1* 1 that he was then nearly naked, r.n ' appeared to be much dcbilita ed from the effects of ?om lupifying drink A letter of ecommemlation from D. M' Teller, (hat was in the pocets of Norton on the tiig ie w as robbed, n* ? ell as the v of his trunk and a b; .. .* seal, were found in possession >f Lavery when he was arrested, which were then claim.1 by him as his property. The def nee proved that Norton was very much intoxirteil at 1 f o clock, while in ( ney's grocery in compnnt ith Lavery. Thomas Connor, formerly a-*i*tnai alderan of the Seventh w ard, was called to prove his eharac-r, when he stated thai he knew him several years sinee <nd at the solicitation of his friends lie got him a situation i ith a silver plater, and that he was discharged from a econd situation because he had become intoxicated. Ither persons were also called, who testified that they -new him, and believed that he was honest. The jury, aPeran absence of a few minutee, returned a verdict of

guilty. i he Court then proceeded to pus sentence, when La. ery stoutly denied all knowledge of the crime, and stated that the thiugs found in his pockets were given him hy Notion to hold in his hand, while he knocked someone lown with whom they had u ti ;ht in the street. lie was then sentenced to three years serv ice in the -date prison. The Court then, with the consent of the District Attorney, ordered a nolle proie</ni, to be entered in the case of Thomas t^uinn, who w as with Savery on the night above named, as there was not evidence sutttcient to convict him. j Trial for Grand larceny and heuull and Halt ery, witk Intent to Kill,?A man named Jacob Thomjison was then tried on the abos e charges for assaulting James Morris, 1 on the night of the 22J of last month, knocking him down i with a glass hottle. and then robbing him ol $S0. It was , pros ed that Morris, who is a sort ol second cousia of the wile of Thompson, who i-also called Tracy, she having worried another man whileThompso 1 wasab-ent "doing the State some service," called to see her on the above ' named night, in company w ith a young woman named Keenau, who is a sister of the w ife also. That while there lliej hud some gin, and Morris showed some gold that he hail in his pocket, which Mrs. Thompson wanted him to change for silver. That he had some words w ith Thompson, w hich ended in a knock down and drag out, ami as Morris said, with a lo-s of about fcSO hi gold, w hich he swore Thompson took out of his pocket.

City Intelligence. Extensive Rorheht oe Goi.d at the President Hotel.?A few wrecks since a gentleman named James J. Bealin arrived in this country from Ireland, and took lodgings at the President Hotel, kept by Timothy B. Redmond, on Broadway, near Cedar street; and on Sunday night last, the 10th instant, his trunk, which was in hitl>ed-room, was broken open by forcing the lock, and 89.', sovereigns stolen therefrom, valued at over $4000. Mr. ilealin testifies, under his affidavit, before the !>olice, that on Friday, the 1st of July, Mr. Redmond, the proprietor of the house, borrowed 100sovereigns from him, in order to pay a note that he said u as due, and that he paid back 10 of the sovereigns the next day, stating that he had no use for them. That on the 13th instant, h< paid the balance of the money he had borrowed, with the exception of about $30. Mr. Bealin has entered no complaint against Mr. Redmtud, although he testifies that to his knowledge no one else knew thai he money was in his possession. Mr. Redmond has tenlercd every aid to the police in order to lead to the detection of the robber, but up to the present time no clue has been ascertained to unravel the mystery. As there har been various rumors in circulation relative to this affair, we thus present the particulars as stated under oath, and leave the public to form their own conclusions. Police?Officer A. M. C. Smith arrested Mr. Samuel J. Cunimings yesterday, while he was walking up Broodway, on a charge of obtaining a gold watch, ring and silk I umbrella from a young lady in Philadelphia, after making a promise to marry her, and for which he was advertised in the Ledger and Herald, an 1 $30 reward offered for hiapprehension. Smith recovered all the property obtainc. by the rogue from the young woman. While in tb< charge of Smith, another complaint was entered agains' him of robbing Joseph Ray, a lodger at the President Hotel, of $101 in gold, ?n the night of the 13th inst., by cutting a belt from his body that eontoined the money, while in company with him during the evening. Grand Larcenies.?A loafer named Alexander Danforth was arrested yesterday by officer Lounsberry.on a charg' of stealing a silver watch worth $40 from f apt.

State Conventions, <$-r. , Tlte Fourth of July passed ofl' most joyously in i his region. There was hilarity without intoxica- ' ion, and, as it would now seem, as a necessary con equencc this memorable anniversary of this greal 1 ration's birth, was not signalized by the slightest i iccidcnt of a kind to be regretted, so far as 1 have teard. > There were two celebrations in this city, viz: a lemocratic one, at which Gearge P. Conrad, Esq.. lelivered an excellent oration, of a political celebra- t ion tendency of course, since it was a political ce- ( ebration where he enacted the part of orator; and i Sunday School celebration, attended by about one housand children of this city who receive instruc ion in the Sunday Schools. Every village in this sounty, great and small,had I believe its celebration uid in some cases two or three. There was no Irunkenness, no rioting, nobody killed, nobodt vounded; but all wus done in order and with a be otning spirit, indicating real and substantial enjoynent. Mr. Clayton, the aeronaut, ntade his thirtieth as tension from Columbus, at 5 o'clock on the Fourth We had a splendid view of him in this city. We <aw the balloon in the extreme west, and watched t as it passed a little south of us, and proceeded to vords the east, until it landed about four miles from lere an the Zanesville Road. There were thousands at Columbus to witness the ascension, and out ntizens, after it was ascertained Mr. Clayton ha< anded so near us, turned out in great numbers t< /i-iit him. Mr. C. displayed his balloan, and answered the numerous inquiries addressed to him in tin ! ;reatest good humor. The exercises at the Newark Institute on Saturla v, the 9th instant, were very interesting and initructive. Charles Matthews, Esq., delivered a ve y excellent and classical lecture on Natural Histoy, which was listened to, by those who a|g>reciate nut noble brunch of knowledge, with the greatest ittention and interest. The Rhode Island Question a'rs then taken up, and a long, animated, and elo- 1 pient speech made in favor of the suffrage party, bj he Hon. 11. H. Taylor, a leading member of the ">hio Senate. Many members were disposed to taki he question at the conclusion of this speech. esi>e liadyas it had been decided in Rhode Island ; bui several members were so anxious to speak that th< nstitute finally adjourned without taking it. f The extra session of the Ohio Legislature, whicl ommences on the 25th of July, bids fair tomaki 1 'olumhus, our capital, the resort of an immens' lumber of visiters. Mr. Clayton, it is said, will nake another ascension in his balloon; and a gram; nilitary encampment under the command of Majoi feneral Daniel Chase will be formed, I have heard f t stated that many volunteer companies under ex ellent discipline, some us far distant as Kentucky, vill rendezvous at Columbus on that occasion ; and f t is also rumored, with how much truth I am una- ? ile to determine, that General Scott, Commandei h n ( lnef of the Army, will review the trcxqw assent- J ilcd at the encampment. The 28th of July will also be signalized by a mass ' neeting of all the Democratic Young men in the , hate of Ohio to make arrangements for the u|?iroaching political contest. , E The Whigs are to hold a grand Plate Convention n Newark in the latter part of September or first >art of October. t The Whig party of this State has hoisted the iroad banner of Henry (May, and the Democratic i wrty is buckling on its armor to reinstate Martin _ fan Buren in the Presidential chair.
