REPORTED 1)BATH OF MRS. JEIIMY, A. paragraph appeared in our paper of Saturday, copied from the Cambridge Independ- ent, which stated that Mrs. Jermy had died on Thursday night, after intense suffering, and Eliza Chestney was also in a preca- rious state, so that it was still uncertain whether Rush's trial would come on, as there was little hope of the git-I being able to attend and give her evidence at the assiaes, which will com- mence to-day (Monday). The paragraph in question. was inad- vertently inserted in the paper alluded to on Saturday week, and was* copied into the Leeds Intelligencerof Saturday, from which journal it was transferred to our paper of Saturday. The Norfolk and Cambridge papers deny that Mrs. Jermy is dead, but state that at a late hour on Friday night she was in a very precarious state. The Commission opens on Monday, and there is the greatest anxiety to obtain places in the court to hear Rush's trial. Mr. Sergeant Byles and Mr. Prendergast will appear for the prosecution, and it is expected that Rush Will defend hiiiiself.-Sitn of Monday, ATTENDANCE OF MEMBERS AT THE HOUSE OI- COMMONS.—In connexion with attendances as a general question, it is sur- i)risiiig how apt we are to overlook the absenteeism. To show t\1O extent of this I present an abstract of the divisions of last session:— At 39 divisions less than 180 present absent more than 653 108 „ „ 200 „ 4S3 48 300 353 27 400 253 10 stand thus 40o, 412, MO, M4, 46J,-476., | 486, 492, otf-8, iJLO absent more than J 232 divisions. This demonstrates that, at more than one-half of the divisions which took place last session, not two hundred members were present! So far as the present session has advanced, the results point in the same direction.—ARGUS in Jerrold's Weekly News. THE GOLD MANIA.—The Californian mania of course con- tinues, with new illustrations of the leading traits we have lately so abundantly exhibited. Every method of reaching the imagination is set in motion from a distant mysterious ruaaour, a semi-palpable quack advertisement, to actual demonstration of the pickings." Every newspaper with its intelligence, anecdotes, facetus. is a humorous or sorrowful study of the philosophy of credulity. There is an incentive for every mind, from the cold, cautious millionaire,' to whom fortune is risk, to the poor, hard-worked apprentice, to whom risk of" every sort is fortune. All person.s are got at in some way, by this subtle and pervasive mineral. Already the anticipated intelligence of the hardships of travellers to the Pacific is a matter of daily record. The good humuir with which the invincible Yankee spirits write of the middle passage" across the Isthmus coming out "strong" under its miseries, is blended with the obituaries of those who parish by the way. From Valparaiso, the Sandwich Islands, the coast of Mexico, Oregon, the expected movement, amounting almost to depopulation, is z, fully confirmed.—New York- Literary World. GENERAL Slit CHARLES NAPIER, BART., G.C.B.-We under- stand Sir Charles Napier has appointed as his military secre- tary that able and distinguished officer Captain Pitt Kennedy, of the Royal Engineers, in addition to Major Macmurdo, of the 78th Highlanders, and Major William Napier, who accompany him as his aides-de-camp. DEPARTURE OF SUI. CHARLES JSAPIETJ_—Sir Charles Napier j took his departure for the East on Saturday evening. He left .at a late hour, and proceeded via the South Eastern Railway te Hover en route for Calais. Sir Charles ar (I staff proceed direct to Leghorn, and from thence proceed to Alexandria in one of her Majesty's boats, "specially ordered. At Aden, a special steamer will meet Sir Cherlesj and convey him to Kurrachee, m Scinde, instead of Bombay. From this noint of disembarka- tion the route is easy ancl s'kort through the Scinde,. the scene of his former triumphs, to Moultan, wkence he will take all available reinforcements with him to the seat of war beyond the Jhelum. By-this route much time will be saved by sea .and land. The Commander-ia-Chief is expected to arrive at Moultan in about a month. THE FREKBOM OF GLASGOW was presented to the Right Hon. T. B. Macaulay on Friday. In acknowledging the compliment, I,(, said: "I have quitted politics. I have quitted them without a feeling of resentment, without a feeling of regret, and I have betaken myself to pursuits for which my temper and my tastes suit me better. -But I will not willingly believe, that in ceasing So be a politician, I have :gi<ven up the power to render service tomy country (a.pplause for I hope it may still he in mv power to teach lessens of profit «to those who remain on the busy stage that I have just left, to represent the merits, -the faults, and the affections of other times, and teach a common lesson of charity to I hope it may be in my power to inspire a love-and reverence for those free and noble institutions of our land to which Britain owes her greatness, and that position from wftiich I hope she is not destined soon to descend (applause). With your approbation I)cfore,rke, I will Resume those pursuits under fibe weight of which I have almost felt myself ready to sink." THE CONVICT PULLEY.—WOBCEKBER, SATURDAY, The memorial to the Secretary -of "State for the Home Depart- Inent in favour of a -commutation sef the sentence on tfeis mur- derer has failed in its effect.
