For tltfi L^icapl er Intelligencer. Geological Survey of Ihe State. There appeared in your paper of the 22d of February, a long communication relative to the Final Report.of the State Geologist, which, though written in a liberal and friendly spirit, contains errors which,if not refuted, might impair the confidence of some of your numerous readers iri the accuracy of my work. The critic appears to be very apprehensive that " one or two marked mistakes " which he imagines were committed by me in my earlier annual reports, in respect to the arrangement and relative position of the several strata within the State, may be retained in my forthcoming Final Report, and in a tone of frankness which is altogether commendable he essays to point them out. That he should differ from me in his notions of the geology of the State, ^locs not, I confess, surprise me; he can' have Keen but a casual observer, while I have been a systematic student of it for more than twelve years.

Atrocious Murder. RiciiMoxn, Vi_ March 10. On Saturday night, at 0 P. M., Wm. L. White and wife, living 5 miles below Richmond, on the New Bridge Koad, were brutally murdered by a negro man. No one was present but a little negro girl, who, we hear, yesterday identified a negro man working in a factory in this city, who was apprehended with another negro.—The little gir.l dfl-, scribed a blow on the negro' s head, which was given by Mrs. W. with a poker, in the struggle, and, on examination, the wound was visible, as described. We hear that with an axe or hatchet the negro mangled terribly the face and throat of Mr. White, and that, the forehead and arm of Mrs. W. were severely cut, though we are glad to hear that she1 was alive yesterday. The llcptiblican says that Mr. Whites " left jaw-bone and chin were horribly mar.gled—his teeth were nearly all knocked out—his left temple severely bruised—while his left shoulder and loft eye also showed marks of violence.-1 We gather the f...

The correspondence of the Portland Advertiser thus describes his appearance: "He is about 27 years of age, and has a very quiet, intelligent and pleasant expression of countenance. The most fastidious observer could not complain of the bearing and whole appearance of the prisoner, or argue from it either guilt or innocence, although it certainly shows him to possess great self-possession, and a rice sense of thesituation in which he is placed. His head is rather small and narrow, perceptive faculties large, with deep set eyes and heavy eyebrows, giving to his countenance a sharp, penetrating although quie^expression.

The report of the committee is just such an one as we all along anticipated, and we know will cause extreme pleasure to the numerous friends of Judge Irvine in this district. It is a tribute to real worth which the people very properly consider well deserved; and no doubt they appreciate the efforts of those who conducted the prosecution—a prosecution characterized by a determination to succeed rarely witnessed, if the severity oi' the ctobs-examination by the counsel for the prosecution maybe considered as an example ; which, it is proper to observe, the committee were compelled to rebuke. !

A Lunatic's Act.—Recently, at the village of Aberdeen, Ohio, the daughter of Mr. Volney Evans, an infant of three years, was deliberately butchered by a lunatic. Mrs. E. having occasion to visit a neighbor, left her child asleep in the cradle, and a boarder in the family, Struther. B. Reed, sitting by the fire, reading the Bible. She had been gone but a few minutes, when Reed went into the yard and procured a board, which he laid on the floor, and stepping to the cradle, jerked from it the little innocent with such violence, as to force the arm from its socket, and laying her head on the board, deliberately chopped it with a broad-axe in five different places. After the deed was done, Reed walked to the kitchen and called the attention of the servant woman to the horrid spectacle, who instantly ran to the neighbors and "gave the alaTm. Whe the house was reached, Reed 'was again seated by the fire intently reading his Bible. He was subseque ' utly sent to the Lunatic Asylum.
