Henry Clay. It is said that Henri Clay, the great Kentuc ky Senator, has made his last and, probably, his grandest effort in favor of his omnibus bill. It is spoken of, on all sides, as unequalled,, even by that statesman in his palmiest days. To use a common phrase, he "laid himself out," in a man ner which excited the applause of tho galleries several times. (. There is certainly a nobleness and daring a-bout Mr. Clay that, differ with , him as we may politically, excites our admiration, and our regret, too, that he will probably soon vacate his seat in that honorable body. There is no man within the ranks of the whig party so capable as a lead er, certainly none so bold and so eloquent in the defence of their doctrines. Far in the sear and yellow leaf, he yet exhibits herculean powers that but few constitutions, even in meridian life, could endure. He has long been the idol of a large portion of his party, and lie has ever reciprocated that attachment by the warmest devotion. Disagreeing with him politically, we cannot refrain from honoring the man as an American statesman. A round about Compliuent. The way folks. in high quarters, amongst British authorities, take to speak their thanks for a mere every day courtesy is rather amusing. Not that we object to the course pursued, for we well know that there are various articles, such as wine, porter and brandy, which intoxicate the more the longer the voyage they take. We hope, then, that our sober city Fathers will not be blushingly overcome by this far-fetched compliment, but be prepared to acknowledge it through the same channel. It will be remembered that Lord Elgin and suite, a few weeks since, took a voyage on the "raging ca- nawl" called the Welland, and that, prompted by a laudable curiosity to see what sort of a critter was this Uncle Sam, to which Miss Canada proposes annexation, the party determined to push on to Buffalo. The winds, waves, and other minor matters being unpropitious. His Lordship failed in the accomplishment of his cherished desire, but a great part of his tail (we beg pardon suite,) arrived here and received the usual hospitalities of bed and board, together with toasts and speechifications and high wrought sentiments. They went home and reported to Lord E. the good treatment they got, and he reported it to Earl Grey, in London, and Lord Grey in London thereupon reported the thanks of Lord E. to the American Minister, and the American Minister reported to the President of the United Stales, and the President of the United States reported it to the Mayor of Buffalo, and the Mayor of Buffalo reported to the Buffalo newepapapers and the Buffalo newspapers have given the fact to the citizens generally that Lord Elgin feels grateful for the compliment intended to be paid him. Garabaldi. The report that Garabaldi, the Italian hero, had arrived at Quarnatine, New York, turns out to be untrue. The vessel, however, in which he sailed is over due and may be soon expected. Not alone his Italian friends, but the citizens generally, of New Y'ork intend to give him a reception worthy of his great patriotism and exalted devotion to the principles of human liberty. Active, indefatigable, courageous, he was among the very first to take up arms against the tyranny of Austria, and never laid them down until the last ray of hope had expired. With what a sad heart he must have left his native land! How her ancient glory and present degradation must have crowded on his. mind! There, in those mountains of the Appenines, amid the grandeur of unsubdued nature, driven from that sunny land of the vine and crumbling monuments, must he, indeed, have fell the full spirit of freedom. Buthe comes to our shores from the sun-burnt shores of Morocco now, where he has lived for some lime past. He is to be placed, through his friends, in command of a packet ship and hereafter follow the peaceful pursuit of commerce, to continue in jt unless, perchance his country should again require his aid. The United States Senate. Maine. The legislature of Maine on Thrsday, re-elected Hannibal Hamlin to the Senate of the United States. In the House of Representatives he had seventy-seven votes, one mure than is necessary to a choice. In the Senate, on the fourth balloting, he received fifteen votes, the exact number necessary to a choice. Air. Hamlin's re-election has been vehemently opposed by the hunker fac- tion. Iu the face of this opposition he made a speech, in which he maintained - the free soil ground, with great zeal and boldness. It was an able speech, too, which made the act more unpardonable, 0A short time since, Dr. H. D. Spencer, of Triangle, Broom county, cut from the side of a young lady of that place, a large sewing needle, about two inches in length. The needle is supposed to be ono which she had swallowed some years before, and had worked its way out near the region of the heart, causing severe pain in its course, until it get external to the ribs, when it was discovered and extracted. O Hon. T. F. Frelinghuysen was installed President of the Rutger's N. Y. College, on the 22d inst.

Heat The Duily Commercial at m Cincinnati, July 2Gth, says: "This the hottest season, so far, ever known in litis latlitude. IDMr. Paine is called by one of the papers, having occasion to speak of his new and brilliant invention, "the gentleman who has discovered the process by which you may light the pipe at a pump." What a queer idea! Murder at SeX Two persons were taken into custody by the U. S. Marshal, at N.

Hiram Eddv, who has occupied the desk of this thriving church in our village, with so much credit lo him Belf and profit to the church, has accented a call from the Firs'.

Spring- mM From AVa.ltiiigtou. Correspondence of the' Republic Washington, July 23. Mr. Clay, yesterday, made his concluding speech on the omnibus bill. It breathed the spirit of "Zimmerman on Solitude" and "Her-vey's Meditations." His mind was filled with lugubrious reflections, that seemed to be an elon gation of his despair when the deposites were re moved; when Mr. Webster violated the Sabbath iu a speech at Baltimore, and declared the coun try in the midst of a revolution bloodless as yet; when Mr. Clay and a whole band of bank ora tors, for month's preached panic and ruin, when by their inflammatory declamation a committee of ten thousand was sent from New York to over come and intimidate Gen. Jackson, and when, finally, through their fanatical appeals, a person was rendered insane who attempted to shoot the old Hero, who had the firmness to resist all efforts lo foist upon the country amonted aristocracy. It has been the favorite policy of federalism. since the days of Hamilton, to preach ruin and distress in order to extort legislation for some spe cies of aristocracy . It is the basis of federalism that the people must be ruled through fear, and when ever any man rises in the councils of the natiou and represents this country in a slate of distress and civil commotion, especially in a time of profound peace and in a time of general prosperity, we can safely conclude that he has all the raw material, in his composition, necessary to make a federalist of the U. S. Bank and Hamilton school. The Casses and Dickinsons, Webstkks and Clays of the Senate, for the past seven months. have represented the country to be in a drowning condition, which they alone were able to fish up by the locks. Mr. Clay, yesterday, even went farther than the redoubtable Senator Footk, who named a day on which, in the twinkling of an eye, this Union was to be dissolved. Mr. Clay declared that it was 'absolutely necessary, to pass his compro mise scheme, to re-unite the Union. The announcement, that the Union is actually dissolved. does not seem to have any serious effect upon stocks or upon the people engaged in their ordinary avocations of life. The people well know that the announcement of distress, is but the trick of old politicians of the raw-head-and-bloody-bones-school. The people will naturally enquire of the advocates of the compromise, what calamity has befallen the country that musi be alleviated? It is true the people of California and New Mexico, have met in conventions and resolved that they desire a fundamental law against slavery? Is (heir action considered a calamity? Will their action dissolve the Union? Is not a dissolution of the Union mistook for a dissolution of the political prospect of those who have opposed a fundamental law, in Senatorial bills for California and New Mexico, against slavery? However much chagrined may be a few old bruised politicians, the whole people of the country rejoice that New Mexico and California have thrown the full strength of their influence, in favor of free soil; and the masses, in even the southern sections o? the Union, will never consent that slavery shall be extended into New Mexico and California against the wishes of the people there. The people of the new territories have spoken, and all true non-interventionists will now carry out their views, and those only who are in favor of the extension of slavery, will vote against the territorial bills containing a prohibition of slavery or state constitutions containing such inhibitions. Jefferson. Burglars. An attempt was made about three o'clock, yesterday morning, to enter th house formerly occupied by Mrs. Sidway, corner of Hudson and Cottage streets. One of the inmates hearing a noise, resembling the working of an auger in boreing, rose and quietly went to the door, and opening it suddenly saw two men hur-ridly leave the door steps and disappear through the shrubbery. Upon examination in jhe morning, the marks of an instrument, used by burglars, were found, impressed upon the keys of the outside doors, one of which they succaeded in unlocking, but which opened into a recess with another door more secure, putting a stop to their operations at that point. They then made the attempt at the door at which they were detected. There was an auger hole in the latter 3i inches in diameter and U (IT Mr. Leahky, who advertises himself as a reformed Catholic, and travels the country pretending to expose the vices of Catholicism, was prevented from delivering one of his lectures at Racine lately, by what the Racine Advocate calls a "disgraceful mob." Confession of Unniel II. Pearon the Murderer Professor Webster. ll'orrerpondcnce of the New York Tribune. Boston, July 24. Daniel II. Pearson, who is to be executed iu the jail-yard at East Cambridge, day after tomorrow, for the murder of his wife and twin daughters, at Wilmington, Mass., in May, 1849, has made a full confession of his guilt. He made a " clean breast" of the tragedy to Rev. Mr. Merrill, Chaplain of the prison, and Rev. E. T. Taylor of this city, to-day. He can't give any reason why he killed them. He says they never gave him any cause for committing such an act. He says that sometimes be can hardly realize that they are dead. Instead of ' being stupid and insane he turns out to be a shrewd, sharp, cunning person. He nas lately ueen Drougnt to a realising suuse of his situation through the efforts of Father Taylor, the famous seamen's preacher. Pearson once heard him preuch and was favorably im- pressea wun me IVBV. ramer, auu at ma iuni- sou's earnest wish. Father Tavlor has visited him during- the past week. He talks much about his execution and reads his itie constantly, ne has ridiculed the idea that he would be hung until within a week. He will be privately executed between the hours of 8 and 11 A.M., on Friday. Pearson has a little daughter living about lour-tAAn vears of are. Ho has a brother who is a merchant in this city, and a very intelligent and respectable man. His father is living in Wilmington. He is a white-haired old sire, and a very-respectable man. Pearson has been frequently visited by his only sister since his confinement. rrolessor W euster IS in remarKaurt goou Hem, is constant in his devotion and appears like a man who realizes the awful and ignominious fate which awaits hitn. I perceive that your telegraphic correspondent has furnished your readers with iha fae.t that the Death Warraut was read yester day, with the prisoner's reply. Nothing further of nv interest occurred at that interview. He is allowed the usual articles in his cell that he had before the decision. I mention this because some have thought it a matter of surprise that he should be allowed a knife and fork, glass-ware, &c, they being impressed with the idea that he would commit suicide. He once said, when spokou to upon that subject:"! am too much of a Christion to commit suicide." We shall see. Beta run high that he will never be hung that he will take his own lire. Others are equally as fierce in betting that he will be hung. i .... . ST Our hotels re well filled, daily, with traveller,. Remarkable and Tragical Occurrence. From the Albanv Atlna. Jul v On Thursday morning a young genteel and intelligent looking lady arrived from the west in the early train and took a room at the Delavan House, and as is usuSl, retired to repose. Dur ing the day one of the chamber-maids, in going rouua to place the rooms in order, lound this one, although it was afternoon, still fastened on the inside, .out as this was no uncommon occur reuce nothing was thought of it. Yesteiday, nowever, in going to the room again, the chain ber-maid found the door yet fastened. On in quiry nothing had been seen of the occupant since sne naa retired to her room. Un trying portions of a lady's wearing apparel could be seen through the key-hole, and it was resolved to force the door. This was done, and on entering, the occupant was found in a partially sitting posture in bed, reclining against the head board and wall. ner ejes set and glassy, and dead nd cold. How long she had been dead of course could not be known. Information was immediately sent to Coroner mower, and a Jury lmpannelled, whose investi gations were concluded this afternoon. It was as certained that .he unfornunate lady, soon after her arrival on Thursday morning, had" sent one of the boys at the hotel for some chloroform, which he had purchased at Mr. Burton's drug store, and had taken to her, and a port of which was found in me viai lymff on the bed beside her. Some .spirits of lavender, and sulphate of morphine were also found in the room. It was ascertained by letters and papers in her Hunk, that her name was Marffrct Ann Thornton and mat her family reside near 1 hornten's Ferry, New Hampshire. It also appeared that she had for the two last Years been Principal in the Jack son Female Academy, at Jackson, Mississippi. a. strong fetter of recommendation was lound signed by Charles G. Athertonaud Franklin Pear. formerly U. S, Senators from New Hampshire, in wmcn it was stated that her great grand-lather was Mathew Thornton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and her father's brother was formerly an officer in the U S Treas-ry Department, and then Charge des Affaires to i ma. -m j She was well supplied with clothino- and money : had two or three valuable books in her irunk, and was evidently on her way to visit her family and relatives in Nw Hampshire, on whom the news of this sad catastrophe will fall with crushing severity. Her remains will be deposited n a vault by Coroner Urower, so that her rela tives may remove them, if they desire to do so ine verdict o I the coroner s lurv has not vet transpired, and until then we forbear to give an opinion whether the case is one of suicide or otherwise. I wo opinions were expressed this morning: one that it was a case of suicide bv taking morphine and laudanum, and then chloro form to deaden the sensations. I he other was that the deceased had taken some medicine' which had operated powerfully and caused great pain, to allay which she had taken an over dose of chloroform, which had caused her death. The iurv on Saturdav returned as their verdict. that Miits Thornton came to her death by some corrosive BUbstance introduced into the stomach, causing inflammation and perforation of the sto mach.

About thirty miles West of Piermont, the up train of cars on the Erie Railroad last evening, came in collision with three cows, which had strayed upon ihe track. One of them was lying down, and was cut in two by the cow catcher ; the others were also killed instantly, but the engine and one of the cars were thrown off Ihe track, the car being broken up. No one was hurt, but the ac cident caused a delay of about four hours. The train which should have reached Narrowsburg at ten minutes to one o'ciock tnis morning, did not arrive until about five o'clock ; and the down train, due at Narrowsburg at half-past two this morning, did not arrive there until six o'clock.
