The death of tbe King: of Hanover is not tin event of very great importance. For sever al years he has not been heard from as taking ft prominent part in political movements.' Ho was something of a tyrant and a good deal of tory, but old age (we believe he was upwards of eighty years old when he died) had with drawn him from the active affairs of govern ment during the later years of his life. He be came King of Hanover on the accession of Queen Victoria, as the Kingdom could not be held by a woman. . In 1837, when he entered upon hi government, he secured the hatred of liis subjects, by withdrawing the constitutional rights which William IV. had granted to the .people of Hanover ; but in 1840 he had to give them back, and in 1818, was driven to make still further concessions. His oldest son, 32 years of age, and for several years blind, suc ceeds him on the throne. Providence Post. Who can give the I.ntormation.

THE LATE & PRESENT ADMINISTRATION. Yesterday closed th Administration of John S. Barry, as Governor of Michigan. Tho event is worthy of particular notice. Gov. Barry was first elected to tho office of Governor in 1841, when he succeeded Governor Woodbridge, and meeting on his induction into office a ruined Treasury rind a disordered and unsatisfactory ad ministration of the affairs of the State. IBs op ponents boasted of tho barren victory which el evated him to thOjExccutive chair on the basis of a bankrupt Treasury and a dissatisfied peo ple. Gov.

Breathed to the Autumn drear A Imppy melody, It moved my heart to hear. It called, as angels call, The Joyous days long flown, That tome in single shapes, And yet not one by one. Those soft, bright days so fair Serene, yet full of life, That ward thoshafts of rare, Subdue the founds of strife.
