Hon. Thomas Corwin taken down with paralysis.

--An assemblage of distinguished Ohians, in Washington city, were entertained last Friday evening by J. C. Wetmore, Esq. It was the most complete representative company of all classes of officials and persons of note that has been drawn together in Washington this season. About eleven o'clock in the evening, Hon. Thomas Corwin, whilst surrounded by a circle of friends whom he was entertaining by his fund of anecdote and wit, was stricken by paralysis, and fell helpless and speechless into the arms of the gentlemen standing nearest to him. Mr. Corwin is dangerously ill.
