Remarkable longevity in a family. --A few days ago we announced the death of Benjamin Mead, Esq., in Newark, N. J., while attending a Union prayer meeting in company with his wife. On the following Sunday the Rev. Dr. Dashiell, the pastor of the Broad street M. E. Church in Newark, preached a funeral discourse, in the course of which he introduced the following remarkable instance of longevity in the Mead family, for which he was indebted to the Stamford (Ct) Advocate: "We often hear of singular cases of longevity up among the hills of Litchfield county, but we do not recollect anything that exceeds in this respect the following facts in relation to one of the families of old Greenwich. Edmond and Theodosia Mead had ten children, all in the eighteenth century, seven of whom are now living, whose aggregate age at the present time exceeds five hundred years. The survivors are — Benjamin, born April 24, 1780; Sarah, born August 22, 1782; Obadiah, born March 10, 1785; Mary, June 1
is anything like a sensation in the community. I am sorry to record the death of Dr. Mat. P. Waller, an accomplished gentleman of our city. Dr. W. was of the old Waller stock of Williamsburg and that region, and married a daughter of the late Ex-Governor Tazewell, to whom he was distantly related. He had resided among us for a year or two previous to his death, and had won favorable opinions from all his acquaintances. I also regret to learn of the sudden death in Suffolk, of Dr. Dashiell, who was lately connected with the 16th Regiment of Virginia Volunteers, as Surgeon. It has occasioned much sadness. An epistolary contest appears on the columns of the Norfolk Day Book, Captain E. Burroughs, the active commander of the Chesapeake Light Cavalry, maintains the claim of members of his company and others, whom he names to be the rightful captors of the crew of the United States transport schr.

House of Representatives. Tuesday, Sept. 2d, 1862. The House met at 12 o'clock, and was opened with prayer by Rev. Mr. Dashiell. Journal of yesterday read. A message was received from President Davis, enclosing dispatches from Gen. Lee, which were read by the Clerk. [See Senate proceedings] Mr. Garnett, of Va., moved that the message and dispatches be referred to the Military Committee, to report appropriate action upon them. They were so referred. Mr. Heiskell, of Tenn. moved a suspension of the rule requiring the call of the States and committees, with a view to take up the unfinished business of the House, being the report of the special committee recommending the appointment of additional standing committee. This report, as adopted, is as follows: "Resolved, That the Speaker of this House appoint the following additional committees: On Quartermaster and Commissary Departments and Military Transportation; on the Medical Department; on Ordnance and
