[Correspondence ol the Herald.] Washington April 14, 1845. Sunduy?Preaching m the Baptist Church?Rev. Mr. Samton?Sketih oj the Church, tft.?Ser mon. Yesterday b'^ing the Sabbath, I went, according to my cuafoui, to church, and having listened to a very good sermon by the ftev. Mr. Samson, pastor ef the 3i Baptist church, 1 concluded to give it the benefit of circulation in the columns of the He rald, hoping that the numerous congregation to which it will thus be dispensed, so unexpectedly to its piou-i author, will benefit by it to its utmost ex tent, and thus yield to him an abundant harvest here alter, for the good setd now cast upon the wa ters of this life. Mr Samson is a very young man in appearance. Those who casually step into the chureh where he ministers, and are unacquainted with him, gene rally believe that they arc listening to a young man of from 20 to 22 yours of uge, so youthful are his loaks. lie is neverthehss 26 years of age.? He received his ministerial education at Brown University, in Rhode Island, the State founded by the refugee Baptists, who were driven fr*m Massa chusetts by the persecution of the Puritans. Tnis university is presided over by Dr. Wayland, the author of the "Moral Science," and preuent presi dent of the General Convention of the Baptist de nomination, and its graduates taken high stand ing tor classical, literary, and scientific attain ments The Church over which Brother Samson exercises the l??>toinl c*re, ia of vary recent formation, dating only between two and three years ago. At that time coma fe.v individuals, who were Attendants on Divine Service at very inconvenient distances from their residences, met together and determined to organize a new interest. The necessary steps were taken and a temporary place for meeting, in a convenient, central place, waa hired. Vari ous ministers and alders took part in the endeavor to ex cite such an awakening of mind and spirit among the at tendants at worship us ahould lead them to renounce the world and its vanities, and embrace religion, and devote themselves to a life of piety and i<odlinei>s Among others, the celebrated Elder Knapp came to the city, and labored lor a considerable period in their midst. These ? ffjrts were blessed, and were successful. A great awakening ensued. Numbers were converted. Bap tisms were frequent, until a goodly number, exceeding one hundred, were gathered into the told. The Church haviugbeen thus fotmtd, and its members so increased, resolved upon taking tLe necessary steps to erect a place of worship. Thn was carried out. Subscription* were obtained, a lot purchased, and building commenced, but it is not yet completed. The basement part is ttmihed, and it is one of the finest lecture rooms in which I have ever beer. In this room the church and congregation meet for worship, and are now engaged in a vigorous ef fart to raise the necessary funds to pay off some debt which is resting upon thim, and to complete the building, so as to have it At for use. The church, however, was, a& yet, without a stated pastor, end, ntterdun and deliberate consideration, they received to invite their preuent laborious and useful minis terj'o taketheovrreigbtofthe flock, ho bav.rg previously irtachel b. lore them an J having jus: completed his uni versity education H- accented the charge, and has been for thopost two j ears zealously and ctttc.entiy engaged in prelching th? word of life to bis church His labors hivu beca very successlut, and the church now numbers upwards ef two hundred members?having increased, from a very small beginning to this extent, in the apacc of three tears The great maj}rity--sa> five-sixths-of these members, consist of young persons ; the much larger hBlf being females. Thus, paster and church ere both young; the church is young in its constitution, and the members are young in years, and let us bepe that Mu llock and the shepherd will go hand in hand olong the path at wisdom and piety to their latter days. The com parative youth of the members induced the worthy pastor to commence a series ot discourses on the doctrines held by the danomination, se as 'o instruct them and ground them well in the faith, and to turnish them with reasons wherewith to sustain their profession, and answer the questions of those who asked them for " a reason for the luth that was in them." I will, then, proceed to tho aer anon, to which I listened yesterday, and which, being ane of the course, was on the Institutisn ok the Sabbath. The text will be found In the Gospel by Mark, 3d chap ter, Slth verse, ncd is ia these words "The Sabbath was made for man." BaoTHEB Samson s#id The words we have rea 1 are the words of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Chriit. Tney are his declaration in reference to an important religuu. duty which is binding upon the whole human race. Hi' insertion is "The Sabbath was made for Man " There are some who have supposed that tho keeping cf the Sabbath was one of the ceremonial duties ot the Jewish law, binding on Jews alone, and not on Christians. But have such rightly regarded this declaration of the iSa viour ? We acknowledge the duty of observing the Sab bath is not so fully nndso clearly taught in the New T<s tamant as are some other Christian duties. Yet there is one deeply impo tant thought, which we ought ever to bear in mind in connection with this consideration. It is more dangerous to withhold fiom Ood what he has de manded, than to give him marc than ho requires. If on the one hand we are not beund by the law ot Ood to keep he Sabbath, and vet we live him a dav he has nut re quired, certainly it can do us no harm, and it cannot dis please him; but rather it will prove to be ot immense spiritual benefit to ourselves, and c?>nr ut but bu most pleasing to Gsd. II,.however, on the other hand, Gad ills commanded 'UI tc Dtiserve th- Sabbath, and w. throagh careless neglect, or pride of iAtellect, overlook t iis command, and violate our duty to krep ,ioly the 8al> h?h, the conse quence* upon us may ho disastrous and qlrnil tjayinl wlnt we ore able to conceive. We believe, hjwe??r, that God Iws not leit us to b.* guided by a m-ue priitiebiliWin reference to thii subject; but that he hah sot forth Uflkuurement es elearly as he has many other ackdbwle<l|W3Wl?tian duties; and indeed as plainly as can be expected in a gospel which teaches not so much particular duties as general principles of obligation With theso sentiments deeply fixed ia our minds, let us proceed to consider the Christian duty of religiously observing oae day oi the week. " Tho Sabbath was made for man,'' Christ says. We should expect, then, that Ood would, in some manner have taught thia duty to mankind generally. We know that thn ki owledge of Ood and of obli gation to him i' genoral'y?so far as ivo know uni versally? aiiiouif men. All nititiii of th earth believe in a (iod, and acknowledge that they owe some service to him. It now the Sabbath - the rut day?was appointed by Gad for man?for the hu man race?we should naturally suppose that God would in some way furnish nil men with some knowledge of this duty. And tais we find he has dene, for we notice?in the first plaoe : The necessities of our nature lead ua to infer thr.t God has oppainted a day of rest Ask the farmer at be goes weary to his home on Saturday uight, ariff a* he returns refieshed and vigorous to his toil on Monday morning?ask him, what conclusion he has been led to as to the necessity of a day ol rest. He will teil you that nature could not endure every day toil; that he can do more work In the week by resting one day out af seven ; besides being better prepared for the toil of the week to come- Ask tha merchant as?late on Satuiday night?he leaves his shop, jaded and careworn, and as early on Mon day morning with buoyant step and cheerful countenance he unlocks again hia wares?and his answer will not differ from the other And it the dumb beast could speak, whit meaning language would be spoken by the poor jad?d backbone a* he meets the christian (army's plume and vigdMPItted. The farmer's may be better fed. but hi*9nirfar more aevero ; yet he ia ever fresli end vigo rous and dies at a good old age ; wnile the hack horsu worn down with constant?not severe-toil, lives a jaded and miserable life and drops early into the grave. The late exteusive investigations of Dr Edwards, the able and untiring agent of the American Socicty for promoting th<> better observance of the Sabbath, has brought to light find accumulated a mats of striking ficta, showing that the bodily necessities of both man and beast prove that the Sibfeth?the rest day?is iudeed an ordinance of thn Creator Take one single instancy as an examplo. Two ' m?n?ithe<iu*ilT loaded wagons and the grime number of horses Jjurneyed together from the east to the "far west.'' During the Brst six days they travelled to gether by day und tncamp< d together by nigh*.? But when tha Sabbath camn round, one ef the two n ste.l on the Sabbath, according to thn cnmmanumcnt. while the other pnrsned his Journey On Monday morning this Inttnr was, of conrse, one day's Journey in advance of his ((?How-traveller. But ere Saturday night, the hindmost overtook the foremost, and nt night encamped a consider able distance In advance of bim, having travelled farther in six days than hi* friend did in seven. While, however the forirer rested again on tho Ssbbnth, the latter passed beyond him -but was much leaathnn ii day's journey in advance. The nest week wae worn >or him than the first; and tho third still worao ; until at iength the one who observe 1 the Sabbath passed entirely hjyor.d and out of sight of his compe.nion. The keeper of the Sabbath reached tho place of destination several days first, hearty and vigorous himself, a d with his beasts as tesh und ac tive ns when they started. The breaker ol the Sabbath arrived some days later, worn out nod exhausted himself, and with his beasts so jaded aa to be almost entiiely unlit far mo. Such a fact -one out of many ?how impressive ly does It teach that "the Sibhath?the rest d**?Was made for mnnT" Aod then again the mind of man?his intellectual nature-abeolutely needs a day of rest The parent, anxious to see his child improve in useful know ledge, and the teacher, equally anxious for his pupil, ail acknowledge this principle. Every teacher gives to hij scholars, not only the Sabbath, but another additional day, two out of seven, as days of rest. And. betides, every wise teacher gives, in addition, whole weeks, and, as the s'udent advances in hisceursa, whole months of rest from study And when the mi:.d haa com* to the maturity ol manhood no less does it need its seasons ol recreation and rest, (iod has so made the human mind that it must have rest The pious and eminent English statesmsn, Wilbei force, lived to a good old age, while he saw bis ce temporaries, Pitt and Sheridsn and others, go down to the grave in the prime of life ; and he attributed his superior and longer continued health mainly to the fact, that he obierved the Sabbaths, giving to his mind a day'a rest from his cares as a statesman, while they neglected the Sabbath and were worn out by constant mental care and application. And thus again the mind of man bears its testimony to the lact that " the Sabbath?the reet day ?was made for man.*' But man haa wanta |more urgent, and of fbr more vital importanoa than theee. His moral datura?hia Immortal spirit baa its wants. Those part sh in* bodies, and those minds employed In temporal pur iuit*, need re*'.; anil therefoie the Sabbath ii needed as .< day of re*t. But tb?: ?oul of man has its moral necessi. lies. It i* to be lltteel lor a higher world by religious ?<tady ?nd contemplation, anil by pious Gomtnunion with God. Yet we I.low that we are so made tUnt cur minds e in not be employed upon two suhjecci at once. Tim thought* may. and indeed do, pass very rapidiy from one ?ubject to another; but two subject* cannot at ike ?ame mo inrnts be In ourminda. We cannot be diligently employed ia worldly business and at the same time bo thinking ot heavenly thing*, reading the Holy Word oi God, and lift ing our heart* ia adoration to him. True it ia, every man ought daily to hare seaiona, when he turns aside lor n low moment* from worldly bu*ine*e to attend to these higher dutie* ; but we all know that the cares of the world are so engrossing that those seasons are not sulK cient to meet the necessities of our nature. Wi: need to have a whole day for religious contemplation. As we awake in the morning free iro n worldly thought*, to give the mind at once to heavenly subject*, and there all the ! aura of the day te have it fixed. If body and mind need the Sabbath lor rest, how much more our souls need it for spiritual improvement, that they may bt> learning to en jag* in emjdoymentH litt. d to them?the spiritual em ployments if heaven. If heaven is "the rest that re inaineth for the people of Ood," how tiuo ia it " the Sabbath was made for man," as a rest day of preparation for that futuie state And it i* striking to notice another :act in addition to this first truth, that the necessities of our nature ahow us Ood has uppoiuted a day of rest In the second place :?Tho race ot man generally 1 ave ob served one dav in seven ks a day ol rest and religious im prevement. It is interesting te notice how wide spread .mong the na'ions ot the earth has b^en the division o( time into weeks or periods ot seven days. This division wa* observed by the principal nation* of Asia, and Africa and Europe. Porfhyhv, the- great enemy of Christianity, aaya?'* The Pnceuicians consecrated one day in seven a* holy " Dio Cassius, the gi. a, K .man historian ol the tecond centuiy, in speaking of the introduction ot the division of days into seven*, tajs, that the cmtom was derived from the Egyptian* ; and adds, tint it universally prevailed. And this w&* ti ue not only 011 the continents of Asia and Africa, but in Europe also. Homer, the earliest Oreek poet, drep* tain expression?" Atterwards came the seventh, the sacred day." Hssioo, the earliest Greek historian, mikes this declaration-" The seventh day id hedy " Jostriius, the Jewish hiiitoiian of the Apostles' day, fays " no city of Greek* or Barbarians can be found which does not acknowledge a seventh day's rest from labor." Al*o Philo, a Jew ot the same ago, assert*, " The seventh day is a festival to t very nation." Tisulau* al*o, the great Roman poet of the age immediately before Christ, lays " The aeventh day which i* kept holy by the Jews, i* also a festival oi the Homan women." And that ihis division ol time was obrerved alse in the North el Europe aa well as in the South, even the names oi our Jay* are sufficient evidence.. The days of our wpeks hear the name* ot the Wat hen "goor of the North ol Eu rone, thu* ihowing Ihafj^f Saxdttjfihabitants ot modem France, Germany, Engftmfi, TmcPbther countries, even when they were heathen, divided their time into weeks of itven day* each, naming the several day* nft< r some ol their various deities? Sunday in honor of the Sun ; Mon day in honor ol the Moon ; Tuesday in honor cf their god Quisco ; Wednesday ol Woden ; Thursday of Thor ; Friday of Friga; Saturday of Seater Thu* we find that among na ions who had received no knowledge of God Irom his written revelation, there yet has been an ac knowlegment oi the duty ot keeping the Sabbath. Some have eicribedthi* uniform custom of dividing days into periods of time to the tact that the heathen have observed the quartering of the moon ; as the mcon we lenow maki* a complete revolution in twentyniao days,thus quartetirg every seven days But even it this sign of nature m ghi have led to the division of days into week*, it ciuld liui have led to the religious ehsrrviuice of one day out ol sever. The fact* wu nave reter-ed to cantiot be accour eJ for on any other principle than ! hij ? that liomthe Creation an.! Irom the days ot No.h, the| tiaditinn ot the Sabbath has Letn {handed down to all generations, an. all nations of men, that tradition being confirmed by the necessities of every mau. It is the universal voice of the whole world of God'* rational creation, joining in the heartfelt acknowledgement, ' The 8?bbath was made for man." But we turn irom this convincing evidence writ ten on every page of the book of nature, and we take up the Bible?the Book of Gad's Revelation, to examine what this teaches on the subject be'orc us, tr>at " the Sab bath waa mi de for nian." We have hardly opened It when we find written on thi first page in the very -id chapter of Genesis, thi* declaration: " And God blesied the leventh day oud sanctified It, because in it lie hnd retted Irom all hi* work which God ercaied and mad*." We notice here t'lat the Sabbath was appointod for our lr*t parent*?foi the ancestor* of the whole h.ucnn race. We notice also the reason?the object of tho duty tnjornel is a general one, applicable to the.whole rac ot riiau.RThe day it given that men may honor Go a ns the author of creation ?as their Creator and Benefactor; who employed (or ?i* dsy* hia migh'.y power and matchless wisdom in fitting up the world for man's happy residence ; anrt then rested ou the seventh day. It is given also that man may rest on the seventh day ; that he may refresh hi* weory body hnd jod. d mind alter the week's toil; and that his burden el spirit too, may have sweet re?t ill communion with GoO, making preparation lor and enjoying a t'oietaste ol ttiai rect which await* the people of God. Thus, on it vary fim |<a?e, in connection with the history of man's creation, God teaches the duty of ell men to keep the Sub baih. We find no special mention ot the observance ?; th; keeping of the Sabbath daring the history of the pa triarchs;^nor shoul l we expect it in so brief and compr<{ hensive a history; yet thero are scattered all along allu mens which lead us to inter the Sabbath was ohservid during the patriarchal age. Thus we read in the 4th chapter of Genesis, that ' in the process of time" Cain ano A Del brought their offerings to the Lord. The expression " in the process of time," literally is, "in the end ol day*.' and the plain intimation of the passage jj, that it was the ordinary custom of Cain and Abel " at the end of dat *"? at the clo*e ol each ?d?c?mve interval of n number oi uays, tnese immediate descendant of Aram brought their efturirigs to the Lord. And who can reasonably doubt that it was on eacb seventh day th?y brought these offer ings 7 Again, in the history of Noah, we find also evi dence thai the division of days into we< ks was observed, for we find Noah repeatedly sending the dove and raven at intervals of seven days. But still more, when the Jews were passing through the wilderness from Egypt, nod be fore t:.ey had reached Mount Sinai we finn themobseiv ing the Sabbath, by gathering double the nuantity ol manna on the sixth day ol the wt ek, because the seventh day was the Salbath. Thus before the law w?s given on Mt. Sinai, the children of Itrael are found observing the Sabbath; and it is spoken of ia a manner so incidental an to show that it was a customary thing; onl how wr ask, c-ould this custom have arisen, und they Imveftlt it o re ligious duty to observe the Sabbath, unices that origins', conn.and, Riven to man, had been considered binding o all ? And thua we are brought down to the giving of the law cn Mount Sinai. The fourth of the ten comman .i written on the two tables of stone, we find relntes to this duty. The command is, " Remember thn Sabbath day. to keep it holyand then it is ndded that both man and hoast should refrain from all work on that day ; and the reason for the obse: vau?H|a^h|^Uod tested on that day and sanctifW it. W^^EUoTiMr thr comm^id is tht same as that general dj^giyen to Adom?it laAot foMhf. Jews only, but lor the world. Farther, we nrfRMlit' reason for tin; ot sorvance is the same?it is general in its character. If, instead of the Subbath, the duty of obset v ing the Passover had been enjoined in the fourth com mandment, or it the reason fur ohservi ig the Sabbath ha . bee:; sucti a-i one as this - for.thc i,ord t.rought thee cut of bandftge in Egypt-then,we might have snppostd this con teani was on:y for the Jews; but it is the Sabbath which is comimnded, an I the reason is general Au?i this leads us still further to notice these ten command'' are eveiy where taught to be a summary of natural law, orofthnlaw which every human being, even Without the Bible, feels to be binding on him Christ and hi* Apo<tles taught that the ceremonial la w?the law relat ing t.t Jewish sacrifices and other religious customr? Christ ncd his Apostles tench, that til tl?e*# are ta b < done awav; but fhennoral law ?mbodi d in the'-fen com mands, they ajviciuJ A" still binding on every being ol the human race; immrolDg up the first four in the command, " Thou shat love the Lord they Old with ol. thy heart," and tha last six in t>>o command, "Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself." We remember Christ's words t ? the young man who asked "What shall I do to inherit eternal life?" Christ replies, keep the commm Iments, and then repe .ts'he last six Thus the Savitur plainly teaches that obedience to the ten commandmeuts, is even under the Christinn dispensation eoeatial, to obtain eter ral life. It is tiue Christ dots not specialty mention the fourth command; but the reason of this omission is m n - feat; he does liot mention either of the four command meota relating to our dnty to l?od, but only tteian six, which relate to our duties to our fellow men lui he meant to show tha young man (?? hu di f show him) that he was mistaken in supposing he h:>d fully kept the com mandments; he had not -ven heptthesa which related to his it llew man; he was not willing, loving his neight-er as himself, toifo and ' setl all that he hod, a- d giva to the. poor," am! much ltsi did he, l'jviig Ood rvith all his heat', k>ep the ffrst fou- commands in nil their fulness True, also it is thtt rrwhrrn In 'he New Testamens dots either Christ or any one o| hia Apostles quote the word* of the comiuand, " Re member the Sanbath to keep it holv* j'' n>r do tk"y quote ei hero iheother thw. commands, " Thou Shalt have no other Ood's i.-efore ire"?"Tho'i shalt not make unto thee any graven image"?and " Thou ehult not take the name of the Lord thy God in viiin." Yet Id the New Tes tament all these commands, and especially the duty ol ob serving the Sabbath, are taught In language more clear and positive than wouid;have been the precise quotation of the command itself. There is in the commend of the Decalogue nomething J ewish, in th<> expression at least, hs we shall have oec<sion hereniter to notice. But how plainly and fully ?'hrist taught the duty of religiously observing one day of th'1 seven. In his words he taught it The J WS were sufficiently strict In the external observance of that day, hence Christ heeded not to quote the commands; yet notv constantly ia he impressing on them, the fact, that though their ceremonial observance of that day wa? to bo corrected, yet it was universally to be observed, ?nd he taught the manner in which it was to be observed bv all fhis followers o( every nation, and family of mwt; his teaching at all times corresponding with his ojpreaa declaration?" The Sanhat1* was made for man." And he who with a spirit ot Christian enlightenment studies these teachings of Christ, will be more convinced that he enjoined the duty ol observing the Sabbath, than if he found Christ hs.l quoted In so many w?rd? thecommund of the DbcsIorui ; ior ho will see how in his various and repeated teaching* in reference to the Sabbath, Christ enjoins its observsnce as po?itively as ifid the Jewish law ; while st the same time he separates, trom the manner of its observance, everything Jewish, so as to show even more plainly that ha meant it should be universally observed. Equally plainly and positively does the Saviour's esample emoin the observsnce of the Sabbath- He observed the raas over; but not as the Taasover, and his disciples never af ter obeerved It i but the Sabbath he observed as the Bab bath, and as his dlsolples, they fel they too mu.t ke; pit. The Saviour did not ob? ?rve 'he Ji vlah law of ottering ^criflce*. and wMhraj kudi, and so forth, hut on the Sabbath he went into tne Synagogue, as hit custom wm: though ftili he healed the sick on that day. How sur p&?sing the wisdom ot our Saviour in thus enjoinioi in the most positive manner the religious observance of tne Sab >ath, while he so clearly pointed eut those observances which were the offspring of mere Jewish suparstitution and prinauice j thus more strikingly teaching the uni versal duty of keeping the day holy. 8?e again how his lisciplea understood him. Mark the scrupulous ear* of the women who tollowed Christ's body te the sepulchre, as they returned and prepared their ipicca and oint ments late that night, and aa wa are told, "reat ad the Sab hath day according to the commandment." The Mora I have studied those recorda in referenoe to the lahhath. the more have 1 been lad to admire the wiadem of Jesus, in thus pointing out what wan marely temporary and lo caland what wa* permanent and universal in the Old I estameut law, ia reierence to the Sabbath ; and the more also nave 1 been impreiaed with the plain and poai tive declaration of Chriat?u The Sabbath waa made for .Cal1 up now again, in review,my haarera, the various links in tbe chain of evidence I have presented. Nature teaches us the necessity olthe tabbath for bodi ly and mental rest, as plainly as it teaches that the night is given lor that rest. The heathen have understood this, and even have set apart, almost universally, appointed days for that rest Almost universal!*, too, theLaaUien nations have divided their days into period* of isvuct.? The scriptures now come in to illustrate and conirm all this. Tne Sabbath they tell was appointed attheciea tion and en|oined on our first parenta. From them doubt less the tradition has been handed down 10 all families of their descendants. One line of their descendants?that through Noah, Abraham and Jacob, we are aarared, ob served it before any other law than the first one wss given. Then followed the summary ot God's law for man, on the tables of stonu on Sinai,and the com mand to keep tbe Sabbath was among them. Then Chriat came, and taught that those commands in general were binding ; and in reference to the Sabbath especially, he taught, in a manner inimitable for its wisdom and plain iiess, that while the Jewish superstitions and prejudices in reierence to that day were to come to an end, yet the real rest fand religious observance , was the duty and privilege of all bis followers; indeed, that it was only by Christians that the true glory and divine design olthe original institution was to be carried out. It is a golden chain of evidence, which the sincere ennuirer after Chris tian truth cannet but admire, the more he studies it. Having thus concluded hisargumant, the preacher proceeded in a very feeling and forcible manner to enforce the necessity of our observing the Sab bath, and the gratitude with which we should look upon its establishment, and the end for which it vas ordained, illustrating his positions in a vary \ lain and beautifully simple style, and calling upon his congregation to show the reality of their grati tude to ihu,A|fpighty Giver of every good ana per iect gift bj^Hfproving the 9abbaths which he has civen to*w, to enable ua to enjoy a fortaate of Heaven on earth bety)*, and ao concluded his ser mon. Cue of Nicholas h. Gordon. PaoviDCNCE, April 18. After my Utter of yesterday had been despatched, per the Neptune steamer, the Supreme Court came to the concltision to admit Nicholas S. Gordon to bail, fixing the amount at flu,I'OO. This the prisoner readily procured, :nd In' is now at large. It is very much doubted that ha will ever have another trial; and I think our people uuici bave been satisfied il he had been lully discharged. The evidence against him in not strong, as you must have perceived from my report of it; and with man\ of those who huve at'endod both his trials, the probabilities are in ldvor of his innocence. Nobody doubts that some one besides the Gordons was engaged in the murder; and it i) a little strange that as yet no steps have b? en taken to ascertain whether one or two, au whom suspicion strong ly rests, were not the perpetrators of the foul deed. Touching this point, however, which I have not time i,cw to discuss, I intend to give you some interesting idets not long henc.e. C. W. Personal Movements. < TlieHon.

Samuel Zephon, thn negro condemned to death for tho murder ol Cufly Todd, whic j was rrroetrated in the win ter of 1844, at Gu,nra Hill, Philadelphia county, on the iMth instant .suffered the extreme penalty of the law, in he Moj amonaing prison yard, in accordance with the act of April. 1834, abolishing public executions. The war rants for his execution were, at his rt quest, read in hia cell. He waa denroes that the awtul ceremony ahouM tie d' layed cs short a time as possible, and at twenty minutes past noon, in compliance witk bis own wiehee, h was taken oui of the prison, accompanied by the minis en of the gospel und others, and guarded by the offlcera of jastice, followed by the bangmsn in a black maak, the mournful cortigr, with solemn tread, alowly proceeded to tie place of ex< oution ; the preachers and pious coneolera singing apppjpriote hymns. The criminal walked to the fHital spot with a calm mien and steady gait. On arriving ..'.the gallows a short prayer was made, at the eloee of which, Zephon, after bidding adieu to the miniatera, Keepers and others, intended the ladder with a Arm step, ard while the hangmen pinioned his hands behind hta und fastened the rope to the beem, and afterwarda adjust 0 I the noose, he stood Uf on the platform unmoved. The sheriff shook hands wl'h the unfortunate man, and imme diately gave the eMer to launch the wretched telen into eternity. The drop fell, and instantly a thrill of horror telzed upon the lookers.on. and an involuntary exelama ien of pity escaped tbo IIm of all! The executioner tdlowed too mttch length to tho rone, and the fall neing gieater by two leet than it should hsve been, brought the niserablo victim of the lei* to the. ground, which hia l.'et struck with sufllci?nt violence to make a considera ble imprraaien in tha looie earth. Tho concussion and shock severely stunned him, thnugtr*he sustained onlv slight injury. The noose ^emiune ! sla. k, and his neck cv is no, hurt. The poor wretch, groaning from mnntsl and physical suffering, was borne up the ladder by four men, aftd on >eiog placed upon his fnet, stood a second time upon tbe plattorm,composed and tr&i.quil. The rop? waa now properly secured, the nooseonce more a ij listed, andthe Sheriff again speakip words of encouragement to the 1 Ion, ac<l receiving hi"dying Messing, quickly bade kim a Uat farewell; and in five minutes lrem the occurrence ol the unlucky ?nd dis.raising accident, the murderer had felt the awtul realities of death upon the gallows ? He died easily Tha conduct of the criminal throughout the wholetrrnble scene, particularly at the time of tho accident, was characteriv.ed by a degree ol composure, reth ips scarcely ever known, and the fortitude exhibited by him wai astonishing. When consciousness ret timed ?ter the shock from tbo contact with tha ground, when lie first dropped, he was heard to say in a half audible voice by the persona who caught him in their arms, and removed the noose trom his neck, "Oh Lord ' oh my ! its not over yet? my feet touched the ground " To one ef the men who hel 1 him, he said in answer to the <|ueetion if he was injure 1, that he was hurt a irreat deal, and that he suffered sever, pain In hi? legs and was afraid he oould not stand up. Escept this he did not breathe a wotd of complaint. The accident was altogether thefanltot the hangman. He had hung ten or twelve men, and waa considered a skilttil executioner.
