Thinking of his mother in his last moments. --Herbert Bowen, 16 years of age, a promising son of N. C. Bowen, of Norwich, Conn., was drowned while skating on the river below the rolling mill, on Saturday week.--His companions tried to save him, and a train passing at the time was stopped, and the passengers tried in vain to effect a rescue.

What will you do in Heaven? --About thirty years ago, when stage coaches still ran, an excellent old clergyman, who had a keen observation of the world, was traveling on the top of the coach from Norwich to London. It was a cold, winter night, and the coachman, as he drove his horses over Newmarket heath, poured forth such a volley of oaths and foul language as to shock all the passengers.

Mace, who seems to have expected the arrival of a fresh candidate with some anxisty, writes to us from Norwich that L. Moss Phillips has full authority to treat with Heenan, and to sign articies for any amount up to £500 a side. It is rumored that Sayars has issued a cartel calling on Heenan to once more try conclusions with him; but as Sayers is under a bond never to fight agin, and as his trustees are determined to prevent his doing so, we are Inclined to believe this is mere gossip. At any rate, it is certain that if Sayers gave up his present profitable speculation and signed articles, the matter would not go further, as his friends would take steps to prevent it. We know not whether Heenan's brother has come over on the same business, but if he has, Mac has clearly his wor
