DEATH OF J. H. RUTTER, ESQ. We have this week the painful duty to record the de cease of Mr. J. H. Rutter which melancholy event   took place at his residence, Richmond, on Sunday last, and terminated a painful illness of but two or three days The lamented gentleman was only in the prime of life   but had attached to him a larger circle of friends than usually falls to the share of most men; and, in the   country where the few years allotted to him had been passed, his character was well known and highly ap- preciated.

THE departure of the Head of the Government from the Colony, nt the present critical juncture »Fits affairs has cleated, in "marty quarters, much 'surprise, and is regarded as a species of desertion 'from tito difficulties brought about by his tem- porizing policy.
