Richard K. Cralle.

--The appearance of this gentleman, as a spectator, in the Hall of the House of Delegates yesterday, attracted the attention of members and visitors. Mr. Cralle was a daily visitor to the same Hall twenty-eight years ago, during the debate on Federal relations, growing out of the South Carolina nullification movement; he being at that time the editor of the "Jeffersonian and Virginia Times." the organ of the Calhoun State-Rights party of this State. Mr. Cralle was afterwards associated with Duff Green in the control of a State-Rights journal at the Federal capital. He acquired an enviable reputation as a vigorous, classic, and caustic writer, and an original thinker. He is extensively known as a "star contributor" to the political and literary journals of the country. He was a confidential friend of the great Calhoun; was connected with him in the State Department during Tyler's administration, and is now the literary executor of the great Carolinian, in accordance with his last will and testament. In polities, Mr. Cralle has always been of the strictest State-Rights school. He is, of course, with the South in her present troubles. His health, we regret to say, is exceedingly feeble, he being unable to walk without the aid of crutches. He is now a resident of Greenbrier county.
