Death of J. J. Hooper.

We are sorry to learn that J. J. Hooper, Esq, late Secretary of the Provisional Congress, died in this city Saturday night, after a short illness. For Audry years Mr. Hooper has been well known throughout this country as a racy and brilliant worker of everyday sketches, and as a political editor. Among his earlier writings were some admirable articles for the old Spirit of the Lines, which, at the time, attracted considerable attention. His first book was "Simon Suggs," a work of its kind, and which has obtained a world wide reputation for keen wit and genuine satire. For several years past Mr. Hooper has been connected with the Montgomery (Ala.) Mail, which paper he conducted up to a little more than a year ago. When the Provisional Congress met in Montgomery, Mr. Hooper was elected Secretary, and held this office during the Provisional year. He was about forty years of age, a man of great talent, of unbounded liberal and beloved by all who knew him. our. Hooper was from Montgomery, Alabama, at which place his family now reside.
