NEWS OF THE WEEK. I A report is current," says a Berlin letter, "that the Prince Royal of Hanover, who will enter on his 21st year in September next, is to marry his cousin, the Princess Helena, Queen Victoria's third daughter. It is said that this al- liance will be finally concluded during the Queen's visit to Germany, in August next." There is intelligence, this week, of Prince Arthur, who, in the Enchantress, arrived off Ephesus on the 13th iust., landed, visited the remains of that ouce-famous city, then returned to the vessel, passing, in the night, along the Ionian Islands, and the next morning arriving in the Gulf of Smyrna. His Royal Highness and Suite landed, and went that day [Good Friday] to the Circular Church. On the 15th the Prince went to Nifi, about four hours distance, to visit the ruins. The Governor-General, Rashid Pasha, in conformity with the orders ot the Government, offered his Royal Highness every attention. On Tuesday, the birthday of the Princess Alice was celebrated at Windsor, by the ringing of merry peals on the bells of the Chapel Royal, the St. George's, and the parish church Royal salutes were fired in the course of the day. On Thursday, Mr. W. P. Adams, appointed Junior Lord of the Treasury, vice Sir Wm. Dun- bar, who has received the appointment of Chair- man of the Audit Commission, was re-elected for the united counties of Clackmannan and Kinross. —Mr. Young, the Solicitor-General for Scotland, has been returned for the Wigton burghs in the room of Sir W. Dunbar. Our readers have not forgotten the Road murder, or the futile attempts to discover the murderer. There was always a strong opinion that the horrible deeil must have been committed by someone in the house and that, it appears, was the fact. On Tuesday, Miss Constance Kent, the sister of the murdered child, who has for some time past been an inmate of a religious house at Brighton, appeared at the policeoourt, Bow-street, and gave herself up as the criminal. She declared that she alone committed the murder, and that no one aided her in evading detection. Sir Thomas Henry, the chief magistrate, earnestly urged her to consider what she was doing but she persisted in her confession, and was given over to Inspector Williamson, to be conveyed to Trowbridge, in the county where the crime was committed. She was accompanied to London by the perpetual curate of St. Paul's Church, Brighton, to whom she had confessed her crime. Telegrams from Nice received at St. Petersburgh on the 20th, state that on the 19th the Czarewitch, who has been so long ill at that city; was delirious. The Grand Duchess Marie, the Prince Lempten- berg, and the Czarewitch's brother, Alexander, had arrived, and the Empress was constantly by the bedside of her son. The Emperor arrived in Paris on Friday morning, had an interview with Napo- leon, and immediately proceeded on his way to Nice, where he arrived on the 22nd. The Princess Dagmar had preceded his Majesty. His Imperial Highness recognized them both, and thanked the latter for coming. On the 23rd his death was hourly expected at 10a.m. the last sacraments were administered. He died early the next morn- ing. On the 2titli- the body was removed to the Russian Church at Nice and yesterday [Friday] it was to be embarked for Cronstadt. The Rus- sian Royal Family are to leave Nice to-day. The Russian epidemic ls undoubtedly spreading. The febris recurrens is advancing towards the Prussian frontier, having made its appearance at Suwalkir, in Poland; a sanitary cordon have accordingly been established by the Prussian authorities on the frontier. The other form of the epidemic, meningitis spinalis, has already broken out in several parts of Prussia, especially in the country about Potsdam. Prussia persists in her appropriation of the Duchies; and it is believed that Austria Ility threaten, but will not strike. Herr von Zedlicz, the Prussian Commissioner, has certified to the local authorities of Kiel, that the Prussian naval station will be transferred from Dantzic to that port; and thtlse authorities have directed the local employes to do all in their power to forward the wishes of the Prussians. All that Austria means to do, it is said, is, to send a few ships to lie at anchor in the harbour, "just to save appearances." —On the 95th, the semi-official paper of Berlin, stated that Prussia had proposed the convocation of the Diet of the Duchies but that she would never consent to the entry of Schleswig into the German Confederation without receiving an equi- valent for the services she had rendered.—At Vienna, it was stated the same day, that the Em- perifr and the King of Prussia were shortly to meet at Carlsbad and that the rumour of differences between the two powers on the question of the Duihies, was quite unfounded. The increased powers and jurisdiction given to the court marshals in the kingdim of Hungary, on account of the disturbed state of the country, are to cease on the 1st of May. The King of Belgium reached Brussels in safety, but he appears to have suffered from his voyage and journey. On the 22nd his cough had returned. A bulletin issued on the 23rd stated, however, that his Majesty was stronger; and a bulletin issued on the 24th announced a satisfactory improvement in his health. The I1 l-ench position in Algeria is said not to be all that could be wished, as one part of the popu- lation is decidedly and openly hostile and the other, while professing allegiance, is secretly pre- pared to join in rebellion whenever opportunity offers. The visit of the Emperor (who is to leave Paris to-day) is to endeavour to make a favourable impression, by the publication of all amnesty while his Imperial Majesty is there and by the promulgation at the same time of some popular measures. The last news from the colony stated that the Duke of Magenta was to leave Algiers on the 18th for Constantina, to put himself at the head of an expedition against six tribes of the Djigellis and Bougie, who had revolted. Their territory is situated along the sea coast. On Monday, the Russian Secretary of Legation was desperately wounded at Paris. A stranger called at the Embassy about 3 p.m., and demand- ing to speak with the Secretary a noise was almost immediately lleanl, nd on tlie servants going into the room the Secretary was found stabbed in five places. Th'e murderer fled, but was pursued; he stabbed two other persons before he was secured. He was formerly a Sub-lieutenant in the Russian army; and went to the Embassy to seek assistance of the Secretary. That official was not dead, aud the uiedical men hope to preserve his life. In the Spanish senate, on the 20th inst., the debate on the ministerial policy, in connexion with the riots, was continued. Marshal Prim said the important character of the debate had induced the Progressista party to withdraw from the attitude they had assumed, of abstention from public affairs and contended that the sovereign could not support a ministry committing such abuses of power with the army. Senor- Gonzales Bravo declared that the ministers ac- cepted the entire responsibility of the events; sad as in the last demonstration of the students, the* leaders of the revolution were concealed, whose object was to attack the throne and the reigning dynasty. On the 21st, the Marshal asked if the- ministers accused the Progressista party of being at the bottom of the late disturbances t Senor Gonzales Bravo replied he blamed no political party. The debate closed on the 25th without any vote being taken. At Rome, on the 19th, the 16th anniversary of the return of the Pope from Gaeta, in 1849, wad celebrated. There were brilliant illuminations in front of the Pantheon. An illuminated transpar. ency was displayed, representing the Pope, pub. lishing the Encyclical and the Syllabus. A des- patch from Rome says,—" General De Montebello was giving a grand soiree in honour of M. de Per. signy. Many think, that the presence of that ;ria of Napoleon in Rome, and that of Senior Vagezzie, is connected with negotiation and to obtain the assent of the Pope to the September Convention, and to make arrangements respecting the appointment of bishops. They say in Paris, that the assent of the Convention would at once be given if the Roman Catholic powers would guaran. tee to Pius IX his present territorial possessions. The financial bill, and those for the suppression of convents, and lowering the prefects' salaries, has been under the consideration of the Italian Chamber of Deputies and that for re-organizing the penal code before the Senate the latter was rejected OIl the 23rd inst. On the 24th the Dé. puties passed the salaries' bill; and the minister of the interior appealed to the Chamber to pass that relating to the religious houses. He stated if any agitation prevailed in Sicily, it was at Pal- ermo and Gisgaiti, where convents were most numerous. On the 25th, the financial bill was passed by 153 to 47 votes the article relative to the loan of 425,000,000 lire, having been opposed by the same minister but carried a majority of 152. The King of Greece, accompanied by Count Honnerk, left Athens on the 19th inst., on a tour through the eastern provinces of Greece. Pre. parations were, on the 20th, making for the elections. Perfect tranquility prevailed. On the 18th, an imperial hatt was issued at Constantinople creating a privy council composed of the heads of the various government depart- ments. The meetings will be held weekly, under the personal presidency of the Sultan. A Telegram from Shangai, dated March 9th, gives a report, that Tai Ping had been captured. Hangchow and Yiugchow had revolted against the imperial Government. The only intelligence from Japan was that a port called Hiogo, had been opened for foreign trade and that was contradic- ted by a later telegram. The India mail brings news from Calcutta to the 22nd, and from Bombay, to the 28th of March. There is no Indian news of the slightest importance. The war with Bhootan is progres- sing, the preparations being on a scale sufficient for a 10 months' campaign. A telegram received a fortnight back, announcing the re-capture of Dewomgiri, turns out to be incorrect at the last dates the Bliooteans were stockaded there in great strength. The 19th British Native Infantry had, however, re-occuppied the Bala Pass. As we anticipated, there is worse news from America for the Confederates. The Federals had pushed on their pursuit of Lee so successfully, that, on the 7th inst., Grant, whose head-quarters were then at Appottomax Court House, felt him. self justified, in calling upon him to surrender. Lee at first, demanded to negociate for peace, but for that Grant had no authority; and on the 9th, the Confederate general agreed to sur- render,—the officers and men being permitted to go to their homes, and not to be disturbed, giving their parole, rot to serve again till ex- changed, the arms, artillery, and public property were surrendered but the officers retained their side-arms, private horses, aud luggage. Corres- pondents estimate that Lee surrended 25,000 men. The intelligence was telegraphed to the North, where it occasioned great rejoicing; and Mr. Stanton telegraphed back, the thanks of the Government, the War department, and the people. A salute of 200 guu. was fired at the head quarters of every army department at all the ports, at the arsenal at West Point, in com- memoration of Lee's surrender which the New York journals regard as the end of the rebellion. During the negotiations for the surrender, Grant continued the pursuit, and is said to have found the road strewn with cannon, caissons, waggons, muskets, and sabres. It is further reported, that Wilson had captured and burned Selma, in Alabama that Montgomery was captured; that Lynchburgh was suirendered to a Federal scout- ing party; that Raleigh was evacuated; that the siege of Mobile was progressing favourably; and that General Palmer, in Kentucky, was re- ceiving the surrender of all the Confederate forces in the states. General Mosby, however, had sent a message to the Federal Commander, at Fairford, saying that he did not care about Lee's surrender, and was determined to fight, while he had a man left. The Confederates were also fortifying the Tar River, at Rocky Mount, in the direction of Weldon, on the Wilmington Railroad. President Davis, and several members of his cabinet, arrived at Danville on the 3rd inst. President Lincoln had arrived at Washington, and it was thought would call an extra session of Congress. He had issued two proclamations,—one closing all the Southern ports the other to the effect, that, after a certain time, if Federal vessels of war in foreign ports are still subjected to the same res- trictions as at present, vessels of foreign nations will hereafter receive the same treatment in the ports of the Federal States.—General Grant had arrived at Washington and after consulting with him, Secretary Stanton had telegraphed to General Dix to stop all drafting and recruiting in the loyal states to curtail all purchases of arms, ammuni- tion, and supplies and to reduce the expense of the military establishments. Trade will com- mence as far as is consistent with public safety, so soon as those measures can be put in operation. According to Honduras advices of the 14th ult., 4000 of the Emperor Maximilian's troops, half Belgian and half Mexican, had reached Le Lot, in Yucatan, m route for Bucalar, to attempt the conquest of Yucatan, and the subj ugation of the Indians.
I ASSASSINATION OF THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT. The news which reached Bangor on Wednesday, at noon, and the details of which will be found in Smother column, has filled every heart with sor- row. Firm in their principles—steady in their principles, either to men who are pursuing a course they believe wicked or wrong, or to piin- ciplcs which they believe to be dangerous and erroneous—Englishmen detest the very idea of attempting to rid themselves of the one, or pre- vent the propagation of the other, by assassina- tion and they regard, with undisguised aversion, the murderer—whether his motives are political or private. Of Abraham Lincoln's career-of oar opinion of him as a public man—we shall, at pre- sent, say nothing but we express our sincere regret at his fate our hope is, that his assassin may rec ive the justice he deserves; and our firm trust that his death will be found to be the act of individuals, unknown to, aud of course un- sanctioned hy, the gallant men who, in the South, have revived the memory of the days of chivalry, and though success has not attended their efforts, have conferred undying honour and renown upon their names. At all places from which intelligence has been received here this morning, we learn that the news of Lincoln's assassination, and the attempt on the life of Mr. Seward, have elicited feelings of the most intense abhorrence of the crime, and of sympathy with the Americans in the loss they have gusteiiied a sympathy which, in London, Manchester, Liverpool, and other cities and towns will be publicly expressed. It was reported
LATEST FROM AMERICA. I ARRIVAL OF 'THE TEUTONIA. I FURTHER PARTICULARS OF THE I ASSASSINATION. [REUTBR'S TELEGRAM.] I SOUTHAMPTON, April 28. The Hamburg and American Company's screw-steamer Teuto- nia, from New York on the 15th has arrived. She brings 150 pas- sengers for Havre and this port, 85,000 dollars for France, and 1,500 for Hamburg. On the 16th she spoke the steamer Pennsyl- vania, and on the 23rd the steam- er Bavaria, bound for New York. NEW YORK, April 15. The New York Herald of to-day, referring to the assassina- tion of President Lincoln, says, an un-looked-for and terrible ca- lamity has befallen the nation. At Washington the greatest ex- citement prevailed in all parts of the city, accompanied by violent expressions of indignation and profound sorrow. The assassin, upon jumping upon the stage, ex- claimed, The South is avenged," and escaped by the back door, dropping his pistol and hat in his flight. The scene around the Presi- dent's bedside is described as most affecting. It was surrounded by the Cabinet Ministers, all of whom were bathed in tears. Mr. Stan- ton sat down by the bedside and wept like a child. Mr. Sumner was seated on the right of the President's couch, holding the right hand of Lincoln, and was deeply affected. At the time of the assassination the excitement in the theatre was of the wildest description. The screams of Mrs. Lincoln first dis- closed the fact. On examination it was found the President was shot through the head, above the temporal bone, and some of his brains were oozing out. The military authorities des- patched mounted patrols in every direction to arrest the assassins. Vice-President Johnson's quar- ters are guarded by troops.
LLANDUDNO. To the Editor of the Xorth Wales Chronicle. Sir,—I see, Mr. Editor, you are very enthusiastic about your Reading-room and Library for the working classes, and I think you are quite right, only I have been very much amused at the progress of the affair. Some gentlemen met at the Rectory, and promised great things. Then our Literary Institute met and promised still greater. Then the Rectory gentlemen said—let us join hands and work together. No we won't, replied the literary gentlemen, you may work for us, but not with us. We will see you at Joppa first, replied the Rectory people. Well, Mr. Editor, our Literary celebri- ties set to work and after working hard at doing no- thing, a great meeting was called of all the town and neighbourhood- to assemble at St. George's lTall. I heard that you sunt a Reporter down, so you know whe- ther this is true or not. Well the day earns, big with the fate of Cresar and of Rome: by Caesar I mean our John Williams, and by Rome, Dr. Rodt-n. The latter stopped at home, but Caesar went to the meeting, where, to his horror, he found four people and two reporters. Your Reporter, Mr Editor said he had been humbugged and I do wish you to tell him to bJ more civil in future, for it is an awk- ward word to use. Certainly, if lie was humbugged, there were others much worse put out. Veil, next morning, I sent the boy who posts my letters for tho Times. I expected to see ad vertised, The fall of Richmond—Surrender of General Lee- Rout of John Williams, Esq., and Discomfiture of Geo. Felton." There was all the news of the American war, sure enough, but not a word about the St. George's Hall: and just as I was vowing never to take the Times again, I heard that the Rectory party and our Literary gentlemen had joined hands, that the working classes were not to be smothered in the debris of the fallen edi- fice, and that the Library and Reading Room was an established fact. I hear that they have made Wan- derer" honorary secretary, hopfng tl) keep hinl ont of mischief—and that John Williams suggested to him, when he hesitated as to accepting, office that— Satan finds some mischief still For idle hands to do. Well, he will have in time now, to be pestering about his nuisances: and between you and me, Mr. Editor, as he is one of our Di-. Nieol's necessary evils," the very- best course is that taken. If he has any spare time he can employ it drawing out cheques, and signing then) in favour of the Institution; and I only hope they will give the "Old Man of the .Mountain something to do also and I shall have the field all to myself. I hear we are likely to have a very good season this year, and all the world will be going to the Dublin Ex- hibition, and stopping here by the way. Well, we will find room for them, and they will find the place altered for the better since last year; only there is one thing I do wish could be done before Summer. We are very short of rides and drives about Llandudno. Every one gets sick and tired of that inevitable dusty road to Conway. I hear the people who are building at Dig- anwy have offered to pay half the expenses of the road between Conway and Llandudno, pas ing near the shore by Diganwy, but that the Estate refused. W hat a beautiful road it would be, and what glorious views of the Conway river, the old mountains, Atiglesea, and Ban- gor Bay it would give. It is just what we want, but what we shan't get, unless the inhabitants of the toww bestir themselves. Of course, the Estate does not see the benefit of the thing; no one expects the Estate should,—but the youngest lad about the place, the idlest and most ignorant ear-driver ill Llandudno, dur- ing the height of the season, will perfectly appreciate the benefit it will confer on the town if carried out. Tile expense would be small; increased value would be given to the land about it; and the road would add incalcu- lably to tho attractions of the place. Are we to be de- nied it ? Is poor Llandudno ever to be clogged and pinioned thus in the race for a first place among the watering-places in England ? I am sure our John Wil- liams muxt see the benefit this road would confer on the town and if he does, will lie do the Old Clock a fa- vour, and move in the matter. I don't pretend to be disinterested 111 the matter,—for the beautifiii road along the beach, by the black rocks, would attraot all the ladies. It would be a splendid drive up Mostyn-street, pnst the old Church Clock, and away by the sea-side to Conway. The ladies would be Bure to look up at me as they passed, and I would wink my to I would not Mr. Editor, I would be- have well, and advise them to drive round by Conway and back again by Marl, Jlodysgallen, or Gloddaeth, and they would thank me for the advics. It would be a grand thing for Llandudno that road, and there is time yet to make it before Summer and even if it be not finished in time this se?ot), it will sh( our visitors what we have in store for and bring them back next year, and luk nothing better than that our streets should be crowded for a long wm(,Ii as they seem likely to be this summer, and that ttere may be plenty of 1) eo.. me asking the time of day from I & THE OLD CHURCH CLOCK, I

0PIIESIDENT ANDREW JOHNSON. I (From Ripley and Dana's Cyclopaedia ) I Johnson, Andrew, a United States' senator from Ten- nessee, born in Raleigh, North Carolina, December 29, 1808. When he was four years of age he lost his father, who died from the effect of exertions to save a friend from drowning. Akthe age of 10 he was apprenticed to a tailor in his native city, with whom he served 7 years. His mother was unable to afford him any educational advantages, and he never attended school a day in his life. While learning his trade, however, he resolved to make au effort to educate himself. His anxiety to be able to read was particularly incited by an incident wjiich is worthy of mention. A gentleman of Raleigh was in the habit of going into the tailor's shop and read. ing while the apprentice and journeymen were at work, lie was an excellent reader, and his favourite book was a volume of speeches, principally of British statesmen.' Johnson was interested, and his first ambition was to equal him as a reader and become familiar with those speeches. He took up the alphabet without an instruc- tor, butJby applying to the journeymen with whom he worked he obtained a little assistance. Having acquired a tnowleifge of the letters lie applied for a loan of the book which he had so often heard read. The owner made him a present of it, and gave him some instruction on the use of letters in the formation of words. Thus his first exercises in spelling were in that book. By per- severance he soon learned to read, and the hours which M devoted to his education, were at night after he was through his daily labour upon the shopboard. He now applied himself to books from two to three hours every night, after working rO to 12 hours at his trade. Hav- ing completed his apprenticeship it the autumn of 1821, he went to Uaurens Courthouse, South Carolina, where he worked as a journeyman for nearly two years. While there he became engaged to be married, but the match was I)r,)ken -oft by the violent opposition of the girl's mother and friends, the grounds of objection being Nlr. J ohnson's youth and the want of pecuniary means. In May, 1826, he returned to Raleigh, where he procured journey-work, and remained until September. He then set out to seek his fortune in the West, carrying with him his mother, who was dependent on him for support. He stopped at Grenville, Tennessee, and commenced work as a journeyman. He remained there about 12 months, married, and soon afterwards went still further westward, but failing to find a suitable place to settle, he returned to Grenville and commenced business. Up to this.time his education was limited to reading, as he had never had an opportunity of learning to write or ci- pher, but under the instruction of his wife he learned these and other branches. Tho only time, however, he could devote to them was in the dead of the night. 'I he first office which he ever held was that of alderman of the villige, to which he was elected in 1828. lie v..tt re-fleeted to the same position in 1829, and again- ill 1830. Iu that year he was chosen mayor, which po- sition he held,for three years. In 1835 he was elected to the Legislature. Iu the Session of that year lit) took decided ground against a schome of internal improve- ments, which he contended would not only prove a fai- lure, but entail upon the State a burdensome debt The measure was popular, however, aud at the next election (1837) lie was defeated. He became a candi- date again in 1839. By tilL, time many oi the evils he had predicted were fully demonstrated, and lie was elec- ted by a large majority. In ] S10 he served as Ilrese- dential elector for the State at large oil the Democratic ticket. He canvassed a large portion of the State, meeting upon the stump several of the leading Whig orators. In 1841 he was elected to the State Senate. In 1313 he. was elected to Congress, where, by suceessive elections, he served until 1853. During this period of service he was conspicuous and active in advocating the Bill for refunding the fine imposed upon Geueral Jack- son at New Orleans in 1815, the annexation of TeX¡¡,¡l the tariff of 1816, the war measures of Mr. Polk's A (I. ministration, and a homestead bill. In 1853 he was elected Governor of Tennessee after an excitiug cauvass. He was re-elected in 1855 after another active contest. At the expiration of his second period as Governor, in 1857, he was elected United States'senator for*, full term, ending March 3,18Q3.
