A YOUNG MURDERER. The English papers contain an account of tTVe. _UnatTsf_^JtrfurUtrd _Bcll_^ "for-the rmirdcr of Richard Faulkner Taylor. The criminal was not fourteen years of age, and his victim was still younger. The murder was very deliberately perpetrated, and was committed for the purpose of obtaining a small amount of money in the possession of Taylor. Bell took him into a wood, under the pretence of showing him the way home, and threw him down, jumped on him, and cut his throat, after which he rifled the corpse of ihe money. When on trial, * he manifested little appearance of fooling at any part of the proceeding*. He was found guilty, but recommended to -mercy*ion account of his youth'and .igtiorance. Tho recommendation was of no avail, and ho was executed at Maidstone, in presence of nearly nine thousand spectators. He conducted himself with decorum and fiviriness, maJo a full confession of his guilt, and appeared sensible of the justice of his sentence. He cut the ...

GOOD GROUND OF OPPOSltiON TO FREEMASONRY. The annexed extract is from the report of the Massachusetts Antimasonic State Committee to the Antimasonic State Convention hold in Boston in May last. "The Masons appear to dread more than any thing an investigation of their Institution. Sometimes intimations were thrown out, calculated to operate on the fears of the Committee. They were told of the great nuinters, the tremendous power and influence ofthe Fraternity: that Boston contained 0000 FrecinssorrsrHhd-rhe United States moreJhan 150,000: tiiat if the Committee proceeded, a host of enemies would rise up against them: that desperatefellowa were in the Institution! and it could not be put down "Toil and labor cannot effect it.

CAMDEN, S * . C. Aug. 30. We have been visited by the most destructive freshet known since the memory of man. The crops on the river plantations are entirely swept—planters, who expected (o_; make 500 bales of cotton, will not make 10. This, with the loss of their provision crops, stock of cattle, hogs, destruction offences, and injury to the soil, will make a sum total, which we cannot at tiiis time estimate.. We believe that $300,000 will not cov<?t the losses sustained by a portion of our fellow citizens in this _district alone. Amongst the injuries sustained is the loss of our fine bridge. It embraced four arches neatly constructed and covered, two of. which, the longest, are taken off.. Five hundred laborers are wanted on the Camden and Amboy Railroad at Bordentown, N. J. to whom good wages will be given. The manner in which" this work is progressing to a speedy completion does honor to its undertakers. The Delaware and Raritan Canal, in the neighborhood of Trent...

For tlie Star. Mr. Editor—On looking over your paper of last week, I find that Henry M'Divitt has again been taken _ijp, by the Aristocratic party, ion the Assembly. I really wish the good citizens of Adams would give the gentleman some office or other, to satisfy himself and friends—No matter whether he is canablc or not, so that a thirst for office may _tfC in some measure, appeased. I, among others of my nei ghbors, think Mr. M'Divitt would do very well to attend to the important duties within his calling—If there were tho. "least shade of a shadow," (as (!ov. Wolf's protege would say,) c f the possibility that the_^itelligent people < f Adams would send such a man to ' the-Legislature, I should be constrained to ask them to "look before they leaped"—but there'sno danger —no need of warning those of our township against voting for any of the Aristocratic faction—we go for measurcs,not men—consequently, shall vote the ticket, IN FULL that is headed with such men as Andkew...
