The following picture of Llie last to Raouls and end of this unfortunate Man Are Given in a late Lexington paper we have heard it stated that a Quot coat of mail Quot was found upon his body after death. He was in his life and death a most Munfor innate Man. From some cause or other his mind had taken wrong Bent Many years ago which led him into a Long series of acts of an unjustifiable character and involved him in innumerable feuds and almost continual combats. We became acquainted with him in 182g-7, while he was residing in Union county in this state and have been tolerably familiar with his history both before and since that period. Since the conclusion of the Border War Between England and Scotland few men have acted a similar part in civilized life. At times he was upon terms of Defiance with the whole Community in which he lived his life has been repeatedly attempted he was always Quot armed to the Teeth Quot when he left his own House which was itself almost an Arsenal. When killed he had a Brace of six barrelled revolving pistols and a Large Bowie knife upon his person and was momentarily expecting an attack from some one of his numerous foes. He was a la yer and Moat of his difficulties originated from the Mode in which to practice his profession. By buying up old and doubtful claims to involved himself in endless litigation and the bitterness generally attendant upon cases was deepened and widened by the manner in which he conducted his suits. No apprehension of personal danger Ever deterred him from purchasing those claims or prosecuting them to the utmost afterwards. On the contrary the Prospect of danger seemed rather an additional inducement and he was always ready to defend himself by Tongue pen or pistol. Had his Mode of warfare been More bold anti open he would have avoided much of the obloquy which his course Drew Down upon him. But so circumspect had he been in always placing himself in an apparently justifiable position legally Many doubted his personal courage. It is but fair however to say that his life had been secretly aimed at by his enemies and that he displayed unyielding firmness from the time of receiving his death wound up to the hour of his death. The Ball entered just above his left Eye which was forced from its socket and rested upon his Cheek it passed through the Root of his Tongue Down his Throat and perforated his Lud. Immediately after recovering from a few moments of insensibility he made signs for writing materials finding he was misunderstood with All the Force he could Muster he feebly articulated the supposing he wished his will written a lawyer was called in for that purpose. Waring refused his assistance Drew the materials towards him and wrote a number of notes requesting the attendance of his son in Law papers from the clerk s offices and his own 1 Dence a so. Amp a. Havig procured what he required although bleeding freely Quot eternally with the blood gushing rapidly at Short intervals from his nostrils and Mouth without displaying the slightest symptoms of pain he proceeded calmly and sternly with his final Jask at which he was engaged until late at night. He completed some unfinished contracts entered into a new one gave receipts settled accounts bought a suit Drew up his will and arranged All his worldly affairs As far As possible. The scene whilst thus engaged has been described to us As the Moat melancholy and appalling one which was probably Ever witnessed. The internal Haemorrhage compelled him to remain in a sitting a posture from the Lime he was wounded until to died. His Gray hairs dabbled with his own blood with which his dress and person were almost entirely covered his spectacles pressed firmly Down upon his protruded Eye which rested in ghastly prominence upon his Cheek he plied his pen with relentless determination. His life s last Sands were Ebbig fast minutes. Had become to him things of the lost importance. Yet precious As the last fleeting moments were his labors were greatly lengthened by the occasional rapid ejection of Gore from his Mouth be spattering and obliterating what he had written. Pushing the blood stained Sheet aside his task was resumed with unshaken firmness. In this seeming conflict Between destiny and himself Waring triumphed. He lived twelve hours longer than the physicians deemed possible and had still time to have paid some attention to his eternal welfare. Our information leads us to believe that this was entirely disregarded and that he died 08 unforgiving by As he had lived. It is said that one of his family begged on bended Knees that he Waring would forgive his enemies. He Shook his head and stamped his foot in Stern denial. So passed from this Earth after a life of turmoil strife bitterness and bloodshed John Quot a.

Our regular respondent at Washington in the paragraphs which to sub join states the other Sido of this question. There is one circumstance however of which he takes no note the Beds of Coal to to found at the Southern extremity of Vancou Var s Island the know Edge of which is doubtless one of the reasons which induces the British Provci Necat to persist in its claim to the whole is lord. Quot it is to to remarked that the British Golem mint to link Oregon a miserable dreary useless insignificant earner of the Earth. Or. Paken Ham in the very despatch in which he offers to Mcavoy our to some third party the ques Ion of How much he shall have of it takes particular car to Tell or. Buchanan that the territory is Good for nothing. Quot at Home the British ministry is practically expressing its opinion of the of Oregon by expending millions in preparing for the a empt to wrest it from the hands of the people who Are settling it. The editors of the More unscrupulous and anti Oregon papers about forty five years ago expressed precisely the same opinion of the vast Region called Louisiana that they do now in respect to Oregon As i could easily show by numberless extracts from political speeches and editorial articles. Some seventy years ago a More celebrated Man than any of these the abbe Raynal demonstrated to those who wished to believe him beyond any doubt that the whole of the United states East of the a Mississippi would never be capable of sustaining As Many As ten millions of people when it is now evident that it can Austain one Hundred millions Moro comfortably than the abbess own country can her present population. Quot but Lieut. Wilkes went through two degrees of this country along the sea coast North of the Columbia. He was not an unprejudiced witness but his prejudices were certainly not in favor of the american settlers nor rights in Oregon. Let me show your readers what to says of this part of Ibe to until through which he travelled. I copy from Tho fourth volume of the exploring expedition Page 334 Quot in the morning when we resumed our Jour impossible _ _ and wild country and that nature not i Haj perfected the landscape. Beautiful lakes tilth Green Sward mowing to the watch its Edge Vith Deer feeding Liari Essly on their margin and very tint of Flower Many of which were not Lew to our gardens at Home strewn in profusion around to could hardly in galloping along but Savage a Bei i s South of the Colombia Between the same meridians of Longitude Are similar from All credible accounts. Lieut. Freemont passed through a country All the Way from Tho Columbia to lat42 deg., covered Wilh forests of Trees which for size and height cannot be equalled in the world or with Good Rich grass and watered with Clear and rapid streams. Now a Forest country Well water ii if not rendered utterly a traversable by prodigious mountains,isalway8agood country for settlement. But there Are Many who cannot understand How Tho Possession of a territory can to of any True importance to a nation unless its surface is covered Wilh towns Mills school houses and churches. Appraised under such a Rule and by such judges Oregon will certainly be brought in As of Litti or no account. I have no doubt for one that Between fifty four forty and forty two if we resolutely persist in repelling British aggressions there will before this generation passes Sway be set up four american states each of which will have a respect Pablo delegation in the Congress of the Union. Quot i believe that some City on puget s sound will become one of the most magnificent emporiums of the world where will meet for Sale Exchange and consumption merchandise of the West and All the Rich Sof the East where will be stored in quantities too great for computation the Gold of Phr the various wealth of India spices and frankincense and myrrh alongside of Cotton twists and Pittsburg castings. These articles will be carried Over the Whitney Railroad Iho Stock of which will doubtless to very High. But your occasional correspondent seeks to sustain his real position which is that we ought to abandon Oregon rather then quarrel about if by Case of the Falkland islands. He says there would have been War Between Britain and Spain about these miserable islands but that both parties happened to discover just in the Nick of rime that they were not Worth fighting for. Now i would respectfully ask did the British give up their claims when they found How worthless the object of them Wesl not at All. They kept them and have them at Iii Day. Great Britain intends to keep us out of All those parts of Oregon Iho Possession of which will a Sorour views of commercial advancement. And that was her design in driving the spaniards out of Tho Falkland islands. Sho was ready to fight and would have fought for them if Spain had not yielded her pretensions. To should to ready to fight now in defence of our dear and unquestionable territorial from the Ohio stale Man. March 30. Kidnapping a daring outrage a coloured Man Well known to our citizens As Jan a , was kidnapped and carried off from this Vicinity last evening by a company of min from Frankfort by. Tho Circum Slanec of his seizure Are As follows about eight o clock last evening Jerry was accosted by a stranger who employed him to carry his trunk Over to Franklinton stating that he wished to attend a wedding at that place. Jerk assisted by a boy conveyed the trunk to a Klinton where to was seized by n gang of men in waiting who hound him and started off on their Way to Kentucky. Tho boy that accompanied Jerry was kept in confinement for two or three hours when to was set at Liberty. The conduct of some of the citizens of Franklinton including a Justice of the peace who aided and abetted in this High handed outrage is severely Init adverted upon. A their Agency in the of Iii will doubtless undergo a jul oficial investigation to forbear comment. Jerry has resided for fifteen years in this City where be has a wife and five children. He is a not a runaway having come into this slate to work for himself a amp the consent of his mis. ,.who resided at or near Frankfort. Sho had invert Mihly avowed her intention of setting him at Liberty and Sinco her decease Jerry has always consid Rcd himself 1 fico Man. Two or three of our citizens have been despatched in Pursuit of the kidnappers with a re. Qui Sirion from the governor. Theabo Ewas inserted in an extra issued Froni this Olliee on saturday. The stat menu therein we believe Are Correct Wilh the exception of one important particular. Tho Penn a a playing Tho victim of this fiendish Entrago to carry the trunk a robs who River was not to stranger to him but one with whom to was Well acquainted and who had ingratiate himself into Jerry s confident lot Tho pure Raoof betraying him. Muriot for that la the name of the villains accompanied Forbes Ibe to snapper on Hii mjg a fiction.

Jerry was instructed to leave the trunk at Henderson s Osco upon entering which the key was turned and a Light struck by the conspirators who seized their victim and fastened upon Bim the Mana Fea that were in readiness. Jerry demanded a trial and designated two of our citizens As witnesses in Hia behalf. Henderson replied that to could go through Wilh the trial very Well without their testimony and forthwith produced a certificate made to hand which he Iii cd. Forbes handed a fit of ten dollars to Henderson which the latter informed one of the witnesses was less than the sum agreed upon but that he expect cd to receive Tho balance hereafter. Less than thirty minutes were in the whole a Tair including the Curc Momy of fastening the manacles and conducting the trial in this la Umry of Justice the examination was conducted with much Lily on the part of the state prosecuting attorney and i j. R. Swan. Or. Met tues evinced much ingenuity in the defence. Tho owner of the Black employed to convey Jerry to London has been also apprehended and is to be examined to Morrow. Stevenson the the Community has risen up of on Man to express their indignation at this infamous conspiracy. Our citizens have never been so highly in Censed or i hair feelings so greatly outraged. Tho gentlemen following in Pursuit were joined by a considerable number of the citizens of London and other places. Those in Advance reached Xenia an hour after the departure of the cars. The probable chances of their Success is a question of intense interest. A subscription is on foul to Purchase Jerr s Freedom to which our citizens Are subscribing liberally. A Reward is also of ered for the apprehension of Forbes and Armitage. Jerry stood a trial a few years since in Dayton on which occasion be established the fact of his Freedom. P. S a tuday persons in Pur suit have exertions proving fruitless the last Ridings of Jerry rep react him safely i the can Luhcs of the room stars who have pros Cal led this bold outrage to its final consume motion he is doubtless Ere this several Hundred mile below Louisville destined for one of the Souther another arrival from tie Prairies. The Independence expositor extra 21st ult., Stales that Alessis. Armijo and Elliott arrived from Santa be lately after a tedious and toilsome tramp. For 200 Miles Back they had to take it on foot being left mercilessly exposed on Tho Plains by a robbery committed by some Pawnee. It will be seen by the annexed letter from our Friend or. Colburn that nearly All their mules were taken from them and they left to shift for themselves As Best they could Over the wild Prairies exposed to the cold and piercing blasts of Winter shelter less friendless and just the same As Penny less although they had their Means with them untouched the news they bring with them is not very important. All is quiet in Santa few for they had Only heard of Tho revolutions below. What impressions it May make or sensations create it is hard to Tell As yet.

We understood previous to out leaving that there was a revolution in the lower country and Tho soldiers Are ordered from Santa t o immediately. On tie 16th of february the Yuta indians killed five and wounded one spaniard on Tho Santa of Road at the Wagon Mound. Tho Spanish company now Wilh us came up on Thor same Day to the place but As several in the company could speak English very Well the indians supposed them to be americans and did not molest them.

They saw our Firo at a distance and took us to be indians and of course went round us but on the next Day seeing our Wagon tracks they again resolved to turn for the Stales. Or. Lorris of Santa be while journeying along with us was sick but soon recovered one of his . On the night of the 17lh the indians sole seventeen mules from me and Twenty seven mules and two horses from Tho rest of the company while we were encamped on Crow Creek. It leaves some of Thorn Deal route of animals. I am compelled to take in their baggage and Money which will delay us some six or seven Days.

A has probably Given the world More of them and better ones and harder ones to believe than any other Man alive. A one of the Boston editors has recently thrown the Nashua Man the following Bone to pick Quot one of the Light fingered Gentry succeeded in abstracting a valuable Gold watch from a gentleman who was the Wotier of a most so Zacious dog. The animal having observed the theft at once renounced his old master whose company he had been for years and in spite of All coaxing and entreaties followed the pickpocket. His new master Wos highly delighted and on retiring for the night took Puppy to his sleeping room. The rogue having put aside his dress and placed the watch snugly in his pantaloons pocket rolled himself in the blankets. A but no sooner was he in bed than the dog who Hod watched All the operations with a Groat Deal of anxiety seized the pants and with one a Primig jumped through the window and made for his old Homo leaving the thief minus both watch and pants 1&Quot we believe this last Story every word of supplies.

This proposal is to be published in several papers but in none South of Norfolk or West of Harris urge a similar notice similarly published was put Forth last year and caused considerable indignation in the West and South. We now Call attention to it again not to bring censure upon the department save that which ils apparent sectional policy is worthy of but to show to the head of the Bureau if h j has never reflected upon the matter How unjustly to is dealing not Only with the Navy Outwith a Large portion of country that is heavily taxed for its support and where the preponderance of these specified provisions is raised from the soil a provisions that can come from no other Souter.

Immense sums of Western and Southern products the products of labor drawn from the soil desired for the Public service yet the head of this Bureau does not seem of know that they arc to be obtained in any portion four country or of any people South of Norfolk of West of Harrisburg. We do not wish to be considered As As sailing the Navy department because for its distinguished chief we have Long entertained the highest esteem. But know ing As we do that these proposals for coi tracts have heretofore been confined to the North and East As if intended for the exclusive Benefit of the people in these two sections and in this instance the same unwise policy continued we deem it our duty to advise the officers of that department against incurring the charge of sectional feeling selfishness and ignorance of their service which has very generally been made against them in Tho West and South and which we know they will soon hear again. There Are men in Tho Public service who have lived beyond their Day and generation they have not progressed with the population and greatness and Enterprise of the country and Are therefore emphatically Quot behind the such Public servants should be despatched on an exploring Mission through Tho country that their contracted information May expand into a perfect knowledge of the Quot great country Quot in which they live. The policy of Quot change Quot might be introduced Here and there and old centenarians be made to give Way to the Young and vigorous and expanded intellect of the country and great Good might thence derive to the government but there is a seeming disposition to provide against popular innovations by a continuance of obsolete men and obsolete sys Toins of we do not say any thing of this character is applicable to any in the Navy department but we fear such will be the belief among the people of Tho West if a More enlightened policy is not soon introduced. A Washington packet ship Henry Clay ashore six gives i it Ost. Tho Fine Racket ship Henry Clay from Liverpool under the command of capt. Nye formerly of the Independence went ashore on tuesday night 24th inst., at 12 o clock on squad Beach about one mile from the spot where the John min Tum was lost. ? the new York commercial advertise gives the follow a particulars of Tho discs the wind a the time was blowing fearful Gale and when the ship struck the sea made a breach Oyer her. Capt. Nye ordered the masts Cut away in order to ease her and although she thumped heavily during the night she remained perfect a by tight until Day Light yesterday when the keel broke off and she commenced making water. A Copti Nyo now determined to Send a a line ashore and to carry this into effect or. Cooly the second mate volunteered his services and with four of the Crew succeeded in reaching Tho Beach where a Largo number of persons had already assembled anxious to Render every assistance in their Power. Having established a communication Between the Shore and Tho ship a Largo hawser was sent off from Tho latter and made fast to Tho Shore. Or. Cooly would have reached Tho ship again in safety Hod it not been for the floating limbers. Finding it impracticable to get on Board he held fast to the hawser while six others let themselves Down until they reached the boat. Having now eleven persons in Tho boat he again put of Quot for the Shore but unfortunately the Waves were so High that they overtopped her and stove in her Side six of those in the boat four of whom were second class passengers were drowned. Or. Cooly and five others Clung to the wreck of the boat and were drawn on Shore. Or. Cooly had a very narrow escape from death having been drawn under a. Ter by one of the poor Fellows while in the agonies of death. He finally succeeded in freeing himself from the death grasp but was senseless when he was drawn to Tho Beach. Or. Cooly As soon As he revived was for making another attempt to reach the ship but was advised against it by those who were on Shore. Having understood capt. Nye that be wished him to communicate with new York he immediately set off and reached new Brunswick in time to take the mail line which arrived late last night. When he left Iho Brach some eighty persons had collected and manifested a Strong desire to afford All the Aid in their Power to save those who were on Board there being upwards of Arec it mired souls of whom four were Cabin passengers two gentlemen and two indies. This was at about 9 o clock yesterday morning and Tho ship was then about five lengths from Low water Mark. Tho wind had got round to Tho southward and Tho surf was subsiding and the opinion of those on Tho Shore was that All on Board would be saved. The Henry Clay had no Pilot on Board nor had Captain Nye been Able to take an observation for two Days. He had not seen the land. The Henry Clay belonged to Grinnell minium amp co s line of Liverpool packets. She was almost a new ship and one of the largest class of packets. She Ivas Only one year old fourteen Hundred tons Bur then and was valued at 890,000. He freight list is unusually Small for this sea son and the goods were of a Light nature she was a Strong vessel and it is Tho Gene ral belief that notwithstanding the severity of the blow yesterday morning Thi ship would not break up and that we shall not be called to record any farther loss of life. On wednesday afternoon at 4 o clock the h. Clay was lying Wilh her head of Quot Shore at squad Beach. A number of persons Wero seen on Dock. Tho Weathi had moderated. New Yorik March 27. Accounts from the Henry Clay have been received and i am Happy to slate thai the Crew and passengers Are All saved with the exception of the six who were drowned from Tho boat. In consequence of fair promises of marriage a Young lady of Cabot Lluc Massachusetts was induced to Elope Tveith a Young Man of that place. They took Quot French leave Quot and went straight on to Buffalo As fast As the steam horse could whirl them there. On their arrival in that City they look rooms at Ono of the first hotels and Tho Young Man told the All unsuspecting Young girl thai to had sent out for a minister who would soon tie their destinies Togo Lher in Iho Quot hard knot of Matrimony. But then poor creature came a bitter disappointment a destruction of the airy Castle Hope had under this comforting Assurance and taking advantage of her Confidence in Tho near approach of the consummation of All her fondest anticipations and Brig esl dreams the faithless villain attempted to accomplish Tho ruin of Tho fair girl whose afle Lions he had won and who had Given convincing proofs of her attachment to him and Reliance on his promises. But the fellow was baulked in his infamous design. Tho vigorous resistance of the poor girl and her cries for help brought assistance Ere her strength had failed her. The landlord burst into the room and soon received a Frank and honest statement of All the circumstances from the girl. His measures were quickly taken. At his request the weeping girl left the room. Then Locking the door he said to Tho faithless heartless fellow Quot now you contemptible scoundrel bring to me All your baggage and open the command was obeyed. Quot now Quot to added Quot strip yourself of All your outer garments and hand them to this order was also obeyed. He then searched his trunk and pockets and taking therefrom All Tho Money that he could and amounting to s60, to returned to the fellow his clothes and baggage and when he had dressed gave him a hint to leave Tho House that he Wos not slow to take. To then gave the girl All the Money and putting her in the Safo charge of a Friend sent her Homo to Cabo Villo. To has since received a letter from her thanking him heartily in the name of herself and parents for his timely Aid in rescuing her so effectually from an unmitigated villain. The landlord has his Reward. To Trust the false hearted seducer will receive the full punishment his Villany citizen. It is said that a Young Man named Richardson a resident of Lexington has publicly slated that to shot John u. Waring. To is n son of Samuel q. Luchard son who was killed by Waring some Quot years ago at Frankfort. Eight boats Laden with five Hundred tons of Iron were Anne in Tho Alleghany River last week Tho Metal will be Mccu veiled when the rivet fills the Aubara Ken in said that Van Arsdale who was dangerously wounded by Tho negro Freeman in Tho attempt to defend Van Ness and his family in recovering and will probably be Able to testify on the trial. The murderer meantime Baa Mise a confession of which the cart Ign Tocsin gives the following account Quot Tho negro As to understand give this version of the Rattler Heia she knocked at Tho front door and went Imo the silting room and Van Ness asked him what he want to re. Replied that he had been up a piece and was cold and wanted to warm that he went up to Tho stove that Van Nesa got off Hia chair that to had Hia knife under his Coal and had left Hia club which had a knife in the end of ii at Iho a let that he had no Chin that to Midna Biossat Van Ness and stabbed him after which Van pcs will to the door of the Kilch no .11 a. Van Nisi and he was subbed that he of Irr wards stabbed her. The negro is confused in his statements about the time he had a a cube Wilh my. By kor but thinks he Slabbed her with Iho knife in the end of the club at Iho Gate after to had the scuffle with Van Arsdale and that Sho then cot him with a Butcher knife. To lays that Van Arsdale Srnek him with Tho candlestick and he slipped Down stain and that his knife Blade then was broken. Quot at one time he assigned As a motive for Thil act that he was Unju Stiv imprisoned for five Yean for stealing a horse when in was not til Ltd and that the state owed him for his Lime Ami As he could not get pay in any other was to was going 10 take his revenge in that Way but his stories Are Coniti Cloty on this Point. Quot after the horse on which the Nero Rode from Van Ness stumbled and fell near new Guinea the murderer proceeded on fool to the big dam which he crossed and then proceeded through the East part of Tho Village non Tho North Road leading to Skaneateles to the farm occupied by or. Barrington where he stole the Grey Mare he mounted on Bare Back and with Only a Halter and struck the Road to Syracuse about two Miles can of Elbridge. He passed through Syracuse soon Afler Daylight and went thence Chron a Salina Liverpool clan comets to Anburn tragedy. Jar. Van Arsdale the fifth victim of lha Arch fiend Freeman expired last sunday. Our blood chills when we think of the extent of the fiendish murder and we feel at once that the Law provides no adequate punishment for an offence so unparalleled in the record of crime. The of the murderer will close the tragedy except in the recollection of All who Bava seen or heard of ill and then six Humon beings will have been hurried into eternity As it were by a single . Not Long since a Man named William Buckman was arrested and taken before Alderman Galloway on a charge of hav. Ing seduced a Youtie lady Whoso name we suppress through feelings of respect for her misfortunes. The Roscal led her astray by making her believe that he was a single Man an would marry her,wherea3 to has a wife and five children. When his Villany came to Light he endeavoured to induce her to leave Tho City but Sho refused and had him brought before the bar of Justice. The Alderman committed him to prison in default of .�3,000 bail for a further hearing which was had a few Days after and he was then committed finally for trial. Since writing the above we Havo Leorn de further facts in regard to the Case which make it one of the blackest of Tho kind we have Ever heard of. It appears that Tho partner in business Wilh Buck Man they Wero carpenters Man named Leathurby also married and having children has ruined a sister of Tho female Buckman seduced. They both went to see the Sisters at the same time one having introduced the other both passed for and wore believed to be single men and each courted and was engaged to be married to the sister he visited. In the Caso of Leatherby the situation of Tho sister to whom his visits were paid caused her friends to demand of him an explanation and induced on their part an Appeal to him when he consented to a magistrate being sent for and was married to the victim of his Villanyi thus adding the Crimo of bigamy to that of seduction 1 he immediately after the ceremony disappeared. The wife of one of these men is Only a few Days out of her last confinement. Tho Sisters Are both members of Church to which their seducers were in the habit of accompanying a great Bridge. The weather having become sufficiently settled the contractors on the great Aqueduct Bridge Over Tho Harlem River. New York have resumed their work and will prosecute in Wilh All practicable Speed. The mighty and magnificent work says the True Sun will exceed any thing of the kind Ever attempt cd and will stand for untold Ages As a Monument of the Enterprise Energy and perseverance of Tho new yorkers. The Bridge is one thousand four Hundred and fifty feet in length from the brow of Tho Hill in Westchester county to the Hill in new York City. It is All of solid Granite not a particle of Timber being in or about in. There Are fourteen pillars of egyptian style rising eighty feet above tide water and on Thesa rest the Arches eight of which Are eighty feet Span and six of fifty feet. When the whole is finished it is calculated that there will be a Cleat of Ono Hundred and fourteen Foet from the water in the River to the Keystone of the Arches. Should the liver be diet led and made navigable for schooners As might easily be done a whole Fleet of North River Craft might pass under Tho act deduct at Tho Samo moment. All the pillars were finds held some time since. Two of the fifty feet Arches Are completed and the Frame work taken away. The heavy Timber frames used for putting up Tho Arches Are no insignificant fabrics. Any of them would furnish abut Daneo of Timber for a Church of the size of St. Jude s in Tho sixth Avenue.
