A BAD MAN GONE. The chamber in which the good taan meets his fate, is said to be infinitely blessed ; what then can be said of the room where a bad, bru tal man grapples with death ! a man not made bad by want, and the temptation which it brings, but by unlimited power? Haynau is dead. Grey-haired and infamous, and with sixty-seven years of life darkening about him, with the rec ords of heartless cruelty, Haynau, the despot's hangman, the woman-whipper, has gone down to death. lie died lately at Vienna. " Speak no ill of the dead !" Alas 1 What good can be said of Haynau? What can bo said of him, save that he added another word, to all known lanffua?o: that henceforth cruelty the basest, murder the most remorseless, will be expressed by the two syllables Haynau. The vices of a man whose life is private may be forgotten at his grave. But tho vicos of an epauletled fiend, like Haynau, dono in public, in view of all the nations, cannot bo covered up by any grave, however deep. Behind a...

A pas senger was superintending the operation of jransiernng nis unggugc uvm a iu..c. o the bacrnfre cur, and when the baggage-master placed a long blnck box upon one end in tharcar, he was startled uy a voice crying oui 44 Don't don't 6tand ine on my head !" The barrsaire-master, who, by the way, was about as thick-headed as many of the officers of the Old Colony road, .stared in round-eyed wonder. The occupant of the box repeated, with some impatience : M I'm on my head, I tell you 1 Turn me over qickr :.".

THE JAPAN EXPEDITION. ; A rumor has been recently circulated by n portion of the public press to the effect that this interesting expedition either has been, or is about to bo countermanded by the present Sec retary of tho Navy. We learn, from the best Authority, that all such rumors are entirely un founded in fact. On the contrary, tho Admin istration is making every effort to give all prop er aid . in carrying out the important objects of the expedition,and in fulfilling the public expect ation in regard to it. It appears to have been the intention of the late Administration to place under the command of Commodore M. C.Terry, as the commander-in-chief of the United States naval force in the East India and China seas, and with a view to his contemplated visit to Japan, the following vessels, viz: one ship-of-the-line, the Vermont; three steam frigates, the Susquehanna, Missis bippi, and the Powhattan ; one first class steam er, the Alleghany ; and four sloops-of-war, the Macedonian...

THE LATH AARON BURR. The quiet erection of a tombstone over his unmarked grave, in the Princeton yard, has called to wind the' name of Aaron Burr.' Near tifty eventful years of bur country's history have come and gone fcince his strange and brill iant career was run, during which time many things have occurred to call hU memory from oblivion ; but scarcely a breath of air certain ly not a regretful high has borne it from the .tomb. Hi was not one of the few immortal names that were not born to die ; at least for the present, the world has agreed to forget him. Possibly it means no reflection thereby. It has also forgotten the lamented John Wells, Jacob Van Vecthen nnd ElUha Williams his brilliant competitors nt the bar. Even Hamilton, his target victim, is no longer remembered. As for Burr, there are many reasons why ho should have been so soon forgotten. Tradition and legend have handed down his name black ened by every crime. Long before his death, even , when, poor, wretched and ...

T. COltWIN AND THE ABOLITIONISTS. Tom Corvvin is about to take up his residenco in Kentucky, but before doing so; he deem it necessary to cut his old friends and helpers, the , abolitionists, and administer to them a sprink ling of abuse.. Tom's tongue is never o flip pant as when dealing in invective, and as a rec rennt friend is always tho meanest enemy, so Tom in this case proves that his former love is turned to future hate. Though we must admit that there is 'more truth than poetry in his phil lipio against tho abolitionists, we cannot refrain from thinking with what honied words and soft phrases ho used to coo around them when he wanted their votes. But times isn't now as they used to was, and as Tom is going to live in a slave state, ho doubtiess imagines that the surest way to walk into the atlections of his new neighbors is to swear terribly at the abolitionists. It appears that Tom recently invited to his dinner table tho editor of tho Southern Patriot, a paper printed in ...

EXPLANATION OF SPIRIT RAPPINGS. Tlio Brooklyn (N. V.) Congregational Asso ciation sotno time since designated ltev. Charles Boocher, of Newark, N. J., to investigate and report upon the phenomena currently character ized as " Spiritual ltappings," or " Spiritual ism." Mr. 13. (as we learn from the N. V Trib ww,) accordingly devoted several weeks to the requisite investigation, and has summed up his observations and reasonings thereon In a report, which was read at a meeting of the Association on the 6th inst. The report is very long, but the Tribune sums up its main conclusions as follows: 1. The idea that theso M ltappings," or what ever they may be called, are the product of mere juggle, or intentional imposture, is not to bo entertained by any ODe even imperfectly famil iar with facts abundantly verified. 2. The hypothesis that these phenomena have their origin in some hitherto latent action of Electricity, Magnetism, or any other nat ural and physical force, creates many more di...

BAITING MANIA. Our readers will bear us witness that from the modern inception of this terrible iniquity at Rochester, and the attempted mercenary specu lation of transferring the 44 weird sisters" to this city to exhibit themselves to visitors at a dollar a head, this paper fully and fearlessly denounc ed all parties who gave the foul imposture its first impulse in New York, whether, Clerical, Ju dicial, Legal or Medical, as the dupes of design ing men and women conspired to deceive. Wo then took the early responsibility, not merely to deny anything supernatural or spiritual in the "mysterious knoekings," but we boldly alleged a systematic scheme of villainy upon the women who were used, and the men who used them, to make money by deception, fraud, and impos ture ; and insisted that for obtaining money un der false pretenses, all parties were open to con viction under our statute law, and we called on the District Attorney, Grand Jury and Courts, to do their duty ; naming the Penit...

tf view. Must ' we be to' punctilious in fra taing bur laws as to proviJo for assessing taxes on reputation ! . The State undertakes to educate all its citi zens, and makes provision for this purpose by law. A school district in accordance therewith, And by way of fulfilling its duty to the State, raises a tax, and puts that tax into the form of a school-house. Would it be right to sell that house at the tax rates for the benefit of an ad joining district that has failed to contribute a cent towards this State labor? The law exempting certain common articles from taxation was made by men who took prac tical views of life. It was not intended to hit the supposed case of the " laborer," who made such a disposition of hU earnings as to becor the possessor of a suburban " cottage," but pro vided for himself absolutely " nothing" that " is Exempt from taxation." Such an eccentricity would find more than an equivalent for the neg lect in the provisoins tnado for his comfort at the lunatic...
