W. R. C. Vernon, the estimable sheriff of Concordia parish, was landed at his own door in Vidalia, by the steam ar Natchez, so scorched and blackened by the explosion as to be recognised recognised only by his voice. He lingered until 10 o'clock last Saturday night, when death came to the relief of as noble a gentleman, husband and father as ever trod our Southern soiL He was buried on Sunday st Natchez, with all tbe outward pageantry of woe; bat thousands of eyea were wet and throbbing hearts paid tribute to the dead; and an undying sympathy for bis lovely, accomplished, but sorrow - etricken family. Sheriff Vernon's death has caused two pro tern, appointments: that of John Janney, Esq., late Clerk of the Court and Parish Treasurer, to be Sheriff; and Judge J. II. Veazie to be Clerk of the Court both most excellent and gentlemanly functionaries.
