There is scarce a crime enumerated in the statute book of which he has not been guilty.

It is to be hoped that his detestable course is now about run. For the crime of homicide, he was, a few years ago, sentenced to the state prison in Vermont for life.

V. Y. Statesman. The Monroe dan and Lewis-tov Convention.

The grand jurv closed a laborious session of five days, without at-taining to any knowledge warranting an indictment, or throwing light upon tho affair of Morgan. Some twenty or thirty person, including members of the Lrwiston Convention, were examined upon the matter, but all without avail: Each seemed anxious, but none were able to unfold the mystery. This will doubtless surprise many, as wc confess it does us. "Wc were not wholly prepared, even bv the letters of Brant, the Chapins, M'Bride, and others, to believe that the Convention were destitute of ull authentic information that what was so confidently stated, was entirely hearsay, and consequently of no value to the cause of justice: but there is now no reason to doubt. Some members of that Convention under oath, could not satisfy the jury of a single circumstance sufficient to criminate any individual, or answer public expectation in any way.

So much for the bloody stories, the awful and tremendous facia, and other awfully-tremendous things, which have gone the rounds for weeks past! Morgan may possibly be murdered, but the people have yet to loam how, irhcn, where, and v-1lom the savage deed was perpetrated. Rochester Album. pi the New-York Enquirer. In the Statesman of last evening, we read the following paragraph. It is almost unnecessary for us to add, that there is, not the slightest possible foundation for any such story.

It has one merit, however, that as the lie appears in Miller's paper, and as fit was tho origin of all this mystery and some time in February last, with a horse and jumper, called at Mr II. L. Gunn's tav-crn in Gaines, N. Y. exchanged horses with a Mr.

Not long after he left the tavern, and about thirty rods therefrom, his effects, consisting of the horse and jumper, eleven empty bags, and a screw plate, with two taps, were found in tho road his whip and mittens lying by the jumper. The man has not been heard of since ho was seen to have money at the tavern. On Thursday morning last, a fire occurred in a stable in W'ooster-street, New-York, occupied by Mr Warner. Several coaches and five fine horses were consumed.

About CO rods of the now canal south of Fort Edward village, has given way and slid into the river. The rival oyster companies of New-Jersey have gone to law! This is great folly.

and he yet bears the marks of having offended the ferocious penal code of that antiquated little republic. Both of his ears have been cropped and his face has been branded several times. His head now looks maimed, disfigured and hideous. To conceal his deformity in part, he has cultivated to full maturity, a vigorous growth of whiskers, so that neither the loss of his ears nor the wounds on his cheeks are observed by strangers. It is to be hoped that the proper measures may be taken that when he shall have completed his term of service with our friend Clark, the authority of Vermont may be apprized of his confinement here, that he may be transferred thence to satisfy offended justice there.

Botanical Question. Are all plants the result of the germination of a seed on virgin earth and vegetable mould? It is undoubtedly a very remarkable phenomenon that the earth, when dug to the depth of eight or ten feet or more, produces all sorts of plants, p'ovided it is advantageously exposed to the sun; but what is more extraordinary, is that this new vegetation affords plants of kinds which have never been remarked in the country. It is natural to ask. whence came these plants? Can it be admitted that the seeds of those new plants Single tic's $2 00 Halves 1 00 Quarters 50 By Certificate.
