e that the carpenter's mate of this vessel, Mark G. Ham, of Portsmouth, is most particularly recommended for promotion by the executive officer. He is, in my opinion, fully entitled to it from his conduct in the action, but not more than from his faithful and everwilling performance of duty during the cruise.

ry he had even thought to convert me by putting good books into my hands, though I should never have suspected it if the Prince de Laval had not let me into the secret. Two attempts were made to convert Mr. Ticknor to Catholicism. Once at Rome, being at a grand funzione, a priest who stood near him and his companion addressed them in English, which he heard them speaking, and they found he was an American of the name of Patterson. His history, as afterwards told to Mr. Ticknor by Mr. George Harrison, was a curious one. He was a Philadelphian, rich, handsome, at the head of fashion, the best billiard player in town. He was still quite young when he was converted, and he immediately gave his property to the Church, keeping only a small stipend for himself; had his teeth pulled to destroy his beauty, and became a priest and an ascetic. Patterson often visited Mr. Ticknor, glad to get a breakfast or a lunch, and one day brought a Padre Grassi with him. He was a man of talent and c

The four poor guns at sunrise this morning, instead of the hundred that ushered in the day last year at this time, The inauguration of General Harrison, as President of the United States, occurred March 4, 1841. were an apt commentary on Mark Anthony's drivelling, and much in the same key. Whiggery is over. Tylerism there never was any, Vice-President Tyler had succeeded to the office of President, on the death of General Harrison. at least not in this part of Christendom. And if there had been symptoms of either, the legislature that adjourned last night, to the great delight of all sensible people, has done what it could to prevent the disease from breaking out. Besides the foolish and useless extra session, which the Whigs ordered by a strictly party vote, three quarters of them, with the governor at their head, went against a State tax; while the other quarter, with about

Murder in Colorado Territory. --A letter in the Frederick (Md.) Union, dated Central City, Colorado Territory, Aug. 8, says: George Harrison, a native of Alexandria, Va., is running the National Theatre, having recently brought out a company from the States. He committed a cold blooded murder on the evening of his arriites had given Harrrison a terrible beating some ten months since. Both spent the winter in "America," but before leaving had made mutual threats of vengeance. Harrison came back last week, reaching here at 6 o'clock in the evening. He immediately went into the Theatre, armed himself with a double-barrelled shot gun, and kept watch for Suites. At 10 o'clock at night, as Suites stood conversing with a friend, Harrison came out on the balcony of the Theatre, stood within thirty feet of his victim, and fired both barrels, putting thirty six buckshot in the heart of Suites. There was talk of lynching, but the people have concluded to let the law take its
