We give below extracts from the Obsen'er's account of li e melancholy aflhir. A letter also appears in that pa per from Col. David Irvine, under date of Monday eve ning stilting in addition that Judge White had returned tho tin) before Irom holding the Breathitt court; that for some mouths his health had been very feeble, accompa nied by gient depression of spirits; that hii remains w ero to'ho interred on Wednesday, and that the bar of Richmond were to hold a meeting on Tuesday. "Our city was thrown into great consternation yester dav morning by the intelligence from Richmond, that the Hon. John White, of that place, had, on Monday eve ning, committed suicide by blowing his brains out with u pistol The intelligence whs the more startling from the character of the distinguished dead. He was cool, .;eieimnieu, self-poised, brave; and unactof this kind w ould have been cx|itrted as soon from any one in our State as from John White. We have no further particu lars than that sometime in the forenoon of Monday he told his family that he would retire to his room, and wished to lie piivate -not to he interrupted. He did so, am! shout three o'clock tac report of a pistol was beard, and upou going into hisrootn.it was found that he had put an end to his existence by placing a pistol against ni9 light temple, and Mowing a hall through his head. Pecuniary embarrassment is assigned as the cause, though nothing had been discovered, when our infor mant left, which indicated the reason. " Mr. White was, at the time of his death, judge ol the nineteenth judicial district, to which station he was ap pointed by Gov. Owslay, just before the termination of the last sesaiou of Congress. He represented the dis trict in which he resided for tho last ten years in the i otigress ol the United States, and presided as Speaker over the twenty-seventh Congress. Ho was s man ol good talents and attainments, generous and noble, and v, as, in an eminent degree, endeared to a very large cir cle of acquaintances end friends. He has left an amia ble wife and several interesting children to lament the loss of a husband, father, protector. MivluHllun of the Ohio River. Placet. Time. Stale of River.

IlllUous Fever generally begins with yaw ning, stretching, pain iu the bones, languor, giddiness, a swel ling about the region of the stomach, bilious vomiting, and other unpleasant symptoms.

The party alluded to was for a long time a very heavy boar, and sold extensively at the lowest prices. When the recent advance had nearly or quite reached its heighth, he became a large buyer, and soon after the first decline commenced,between the.two movements bis fell through, and it will probably be sometime before' differences can be compromised. As anticipated, the failure has had a favorable influence upon the market. (Quotations for Sterling Exchange close firm at 92 a 10 premium, with a very fair demand.

The importations of merchandise in the early part of tho calendar year 1944, was so very heavy, and the exports comparatively so very limited, that sterling exchange advanced from 8J a 9 per cent in May, to 10 a 10| per cent in October and N> ember. This rapid rise in the premium for ? ling exchange, created a demand for specie for expo on, and the shipments in four months from this port alone, amounted to $4,41H,0IH. The exportation of specie decreased vory much after November, but exchange kept just below a specie point, and has been Arm at rates ruling from !>J to 10 per cent since. The importations of this port have not fallen off much within the past year, but the exportation of merchandise has increased, placing our foreign trade iir a more favorable con dition than it was throughout 1844. The shipments of specie have been very much reduced by the cautious operations of the Banks. These institutions have con ftned their movements more to the legitimate business ol the city than usual?their lines of discount have been pretty well extended, and nothing but short paper has been taken. Stock speculators have this season re ceived very little aid from the bonks, but they have not, on that account, been much restricted in their re sources. Capital from private sources has been abur dent, and the rate of interest has consequently been re duced. The banks have, by their cautious movemonts been able to hold on to their specie, and by the restric tions placed upon the money mnrket have kept the pre' mium for exchange just below a specie point. The longer this state of things continues the better, as it operates as a wholesome check upon commercial affairs generally, and keeps down spoculstions. The Chosapeake and Ohio f anal ( ompany have en tered into a contract for the completion of the canal to Cumberland within two years from this time, and the agents of the State of Maryland have approved the con' tract. The work is to be commenced within tliiity days from the 'iftth inst. From tho character of the contrac tors we shonld judge there was very little doubt but that the work will be completed within the time spec.i fled. We annex a statement showing the amount of the semi-annual dividends of the Boston Banks for the six months ending October 7, 1844 and 1846. The average dividend declared for the six months ending October 7, 1846, was a fraction better than for the corresponding pe riod in 1844. Boston Bank Divipi:ni>s Ocf. 7, !84l.

The difference between these two amounts, or $3,073,175 for ten years, or $307,317 50 per annum, which last is the depreciation of the value of the capital $17,110,000 of the 24 banks in Boston in 1842 and 1843. This difference, or the depreci ation in two years, indicates a loss of interest to stock, holders ol $184,390 50 in ten years, or $18,439 05 perso nam, and amounts to l-36th of the whole capital or l-55th of tho value of the capital in 1841. The whole deprecia' tion, $619,027 73 amounts to more than 125th part of the capital, $17,110,000. Since 1843, the capital inveited in banking in Boston has paid more than six per cent per annum. The average dividend declared payable on the 6th of Oct, 1845, was at the rate of 6jj per cent on the whole banking capital of the city. Tho increased business of Boston, without a corresponding increase in the banking capital, gives that in existence more active employment. This im provement in the per cent interest paid by the banks,will raise such investment* in the minds of the capitalists of that section of tho country and improve the value of tho stocks, so long as tho amount of capital invested in that business remains reduced, but any increase in the profits of these institutions, creates an anxiety among capita, lists to get up new banks or iacrease the capitals of the old, and applications are made at once to the legislature for additional banks, and by tho old banks for an addition al capital, in this way the banking capital of all the principal cities becomes too large, and the competition for its employment expands the currency, stimulates spe culation in the staple articles of commerce, and conse quently deranges trade generally. The banking capital of Boston is large enough to afford all the facilities the merchants of that city or vicinity actually require to carry on their legitimate business for the next ten years, no matter what the increase may be, and by keeping down the amount of capital, (he currency would every year become more valuable as trade increased, and we should not hear of so many cases of bankruptcy, and the almost instantaneous loss of immense fortune*. There would be a more gradual increase in business, but it would be permanent and healthy ; there would be none of those ruinous reactions that now sweep away so many mer cantile house* whenever they come upon them.

UY LAST KyKNlKU'" Washington [C?rre?>(ioui]ence ol the Herald.J Washington, Sept. 26, lftiS. Expedition to California. 1 notice in your paper an article on a proposed ex l?fiition to California. Allow me to furnish those young gentlemen, who are to compose this expedi tion, with some information which may be ol im portance to some of them. 1 have lived there five years?0wn twenty square leagues of land within twenty miles of Monterey, (U. C.) and have now in successful o[?eration a large milling establishment. I leave here on the 1st for New Orleans, thence to Vera Cruz, and across the country to Acapulco, on the Pacific side, where I shall charter a vessel to convey me to Monterey. California is admitted by all who aie conversant with the country to be the finest and best climate in all this world?the land is generally high and rolling, und capable of producing all the good things that grow in ibis country, with many of the delicious tropical fruits, without snow or ice in winter, and on the sea coast not uncomfortably hot in the sum mer, with nil kinds of wild game in abundance. The commercial business of the coast is like that of all other new, thinly settled countries, small, compared with the cities of the Atlantic coast, but generally leaves an immense profit, without any risk or trouble. There are all kinds of fish to be had, (salmon, A'C.) and an immense trade could be carried on with the United States, by salting them. The provincial government, which is very good tor a new country, will give to all settlers from one to ten siiuaie leagues of land, provided they will agree to improve the same within one year from the time the land is granted. A "real amount of money can be made annually bv a company of several hundred young men, even at the gold and silver mines, which are situated within a short distance ol Monterey. In fact I know of no country which offers so oreat inducements, to young and enterprising gen flemen, as California; and should three thousand, even from the Atlantic cities, see ht to try their fortunes in that delightful country, I think they will So trie ^fe w'd ay s since I received a letter from a German gentleman in New York, who that about 200 Germans were enrolled at St. L?u'?. to go with the expedition forming in New York, Boston, and other of the seaboard cities, and ask in" me tor information on some points. I can an y sav that the proportion of females to males, in ( ah fornia, is verv great, (10 to 1) many of the former possessing large landed properties?that they are both beautiful and virtuous?and the length of the ourney by land to California, from *t. Louis, would be" strong reason why few females should accom pany the expedition, unless they go by sea. and above letter informs me that a vessecalled the Ma riposa, will sail from New York on the Ist October, another on the 1st December, and one from Balti more on the 1st January. I?y these vessels those who are married might take passage with their fam ilies, and save much fatigue, -tec. 1 shall be happy to give vou any information in regard t0 9i~?l may possess, and therelore give you my address. Washington, Sept. 29,1845. For some days [>ast there has been quietly sitting in the chamber of the Navy Department, opposite the room of Mr. Bancroft, a committee of naval ofh ! cersin examination of the case of Lieutenant John T. McLaughlin. Lieut. McLaughlin was purser of the squadron em ployed along the coast during the late Fl?^ war in co-operation with the land forces, from 1838 to 1H12. Serious charges of corruption, it appears, were first brought against the Lieutenant by Mr. Charles H. Winder, a clerk in the State Department. A dis cussion followed between these two gentlemen, through the columns of the Intelligencer, but grow ing two strong'in personalities, it was at length cut short by the editors. At least, this is our recollec tion of the controversy. Lieutenant McLaughlin desired an investigation in* thene charge.S of cor ruption urged against him by Mr. Winder, and i compliance with his wishes and ^.'^Congress service a resolution was passed at the last ^ongrew authorizing the Board, of Examination in the pre McLaughlin m eubeiuntially b, ^bodied Utue'publio money.. an sire ?>???.??. cruelty to the men under his commf?,d" M I C ^/r^?UPresident"^ommi^?r8 H?W\^teden, C k Stribling, Associates ; Philip Barton, Esq., Judge Advocate.

Mr. Walker being " solitary and alone," on the Tariff, likely Iluger has come up to encourage the drooping secretary in a f urther abatement of the minimum?

If Father Ritchie could now only further discover that lie was paid in British gold, and hired by the British government to break down the Union, the Mtrrury would be a defunct paper. As it is, we are atrald that Father Ritchie has old "scotched the sarpent." A rumor comes up this evening, that Gen. Taylor had sent a scouting party across the Rio Grande, with orders to look up such straggling Mexicans as might be near the borders, and to " make them stir themselves." The untimely end of Mr. Speaker White.of Ken tucky, lias excited much sympathy in Washington, where he was widely known and esteemed. Two New Yorkers to-day had a misunderstand ing about a lady. One ot them threw down his glove for a fight, " coffee and pistols"?the other declined the honor, but in lieu thereof proposed "a compromise," which was agreed to by and by, neither gentleman, we suppose, having a particular fancy to be shot at. Appropon of shooting. Mr. Paine, who has been shot at so often, is in this city again. He says, he will make it appear clear here that his ntory is founded upon absolute powder and ball.
