GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. . SUDDEN- DEATH.-The following beautiful passage in a Sermon preached hist Sabbath in . Chalmer'* Church, by the ltav. Wm. Nicolson, . will bo at once seen to hnvc reference to a recent melancholy event. Speaking ol' death as the consequence of tho sin of our first parents, the ''Rev. Gentleman proceeded thus :-" From that «jay they were mortal, and in pioc-ss of time '' they dropped into the dust, whence tl.oy had been taken. From that time till now, death lias reigned. Ko mortal can escape it hut by 1 special Divine interposition. So death has .?passed upon all men. And how various aro the modes and circumstances under which it makes its conquests ! . In all circumstances it is au event that awes the stoutest heart, and lays the proudest low. Yet, awful and humbling as it is¿ its drend nppioach is often mollified in its terrors by the endearing associations and atten- tions of domestic life, und a friendly home.

YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. Wa have no change to notice in the grain market, and the ordinary amonnt of business has b-eti transacted. Wheat is stationary at 8s per bushel, the best samples, for ive have heard of no sales being effected beyond that figure.
