Mormons leaving the continent is not a

pith the Mormon chiefs. The plan is not
jet matured, but it is highly probable that
it w|H be nithin a short time. The prin

be able to pay for their transportation to
an Island on the Pacific selected for that

Death Speech of Evans.
Obntlkmxn; —I stand before you for the last
time. A few more minutes, and 1 shall be in
the presence of my Maker and Judge. Since
the 11th of May, 1858, 1 have been deeply in
the waters of affliction; but while thus encom
passed. I have had the Lord Jesus Christ (o sus
tain me. A dear companion was then taken
from ime, for whom I would willingly have laid
down my life. Of her death I have been con
victed ; but before God, my Maker. 1 declare
my innocence. Who did the awful deed 1 know
not. I die innocent, but hope my death may
be a means of good to some here. I once prom
ised to make a statement to the public before
my execution; but as it has refused belief to
what has already been offered, I have decided
to refrain. [He here referred to some state
ments which were given in evidence on bis trial ]
1 was going to declare these statements false :
bat I leave the witnesses to their God. I did
not see Riddle that morning; and did not dis
cover the loss of the money until some time af
ter: I entertain no enmity to the witnesses
against mo; and leave.them to a higher Being.
1 could get down on my knees and pray for all
of them; and I sincerely hope to meet them all
where sin and sorrow shall be no more. But 1
am not a left-banded man, and the witnesses
. knew it was false.
In yonder cell, I have bowed before my God:
I have prayed for them and me. 1 have made a
written statement, which is in the bands of a
friend, with liberty to publish if he and others
think best If contains more than I can tell.—
Before I leave the world, I want to declare my
trust rn my Saviour and Redeemer, my belief
that he has forgiven my sins, and that be will
clothe me with the robes of purity and bliss.—
Let your hearts intercede in my behalf, that
when my body drops, my soul may fly aloft to
nn everlasting habitation. [After conferring
; with his spiritual advisers he proceeded.] Gen
tlemen, if I know anything of my own heart. I
love the Lord Jeans. I know that for his sake
my sins have been forgiven. I have a home
beyond this vale of tears—a home in the heav
ens, I know that my Redeemer liveth, and I
believe that when the drop shall fall, the Lord
Jeans will receive me t,o a home above. 1 feel
happy in anticipating that I shall soon join them
on high—my beloved companion and offspring.
I hope to dwell with them and my Lord Jesus,
1 have nothing more to say except that I am
going, home, and expect to enjoy a blessed im
mortality. V
Duties of United States Marshals— The
opinion of the Supreme Court of the United
States in the Wisconsin fugitive slave case has
at length beeif published. Though we have
hitherto given the substance of that part of it
regarding the powers of the Federal Courts and
the duties of the Federal officers, in cases arri-
ving uhder tbe Federal laws, we subjoin, for the
better information of the public, a paragraph
from the official copy of the opinion
“ Although it is the duty of the Marshal or
other persons bolding him to make known by a
proper return the authority under which he de
tains him. it is at the came time imperatively
hjs duty to obey the process of the United
-Stales: to hold the prisoner in custody under
it, find to refute obedience to the mandate or pro
cess of any other Government. And consequent-,
ly it is his duty not to take the prisoner, nor
suffer him to be taken, before a titate judge or
court upon a habeas corpus issued under S'nte
authority. No State judge or court, after they
are judicially informed that the party is impris
oned under the authority of the United States,
has’ any right to interfere with him, or to re
quire him to be brought before them'. And if
the authority of a State, in the form of judicial
prodess 6r otherwise, should attempt to control
the ' Marshall or other authorized agent of the
United States, in any respect, in the custody of
his prisoner, it would be his duty to resist it,
and to'call to his aid any force that may be ne
cessary to maintain the'authority of the law
against illegal interference. No judicial pro
cess; whatever form it may assu ne, can have
any lawful authority outside of the limits of the
jurisdiction of the court or judge by whom it is
issued : and au attempt to force it. beyond these
boundaries is nothing less than lawless vio-.

At Borodina, on the 7th September, was
fought a desperate battle between fivMWui
and French. The French lost in killed, wound-,
cd and prisoners, 60.000, and the tinmans
about the same number. The survivors of the
French army, ftomi the Bnssian campaign, were
not more than 55,000 out of an army of 600,000
At Lntzen. in Russian Saxony, on the 2d of

allies 16,000.
At Dresden, in Saxony, on the 16th and 17th

French about 12,000.
■> At Leipsie, in Saxony, in October 1818. a
desperate battle was fought, which lasted three
days, apd the French were totally defeated by
the allies. Napoleon lost two marshal, twenty
generals and 60.000 men. The allies tost 1.700

At Toulouse, in France, Wellington defeated

680 men.
At Ligny, in France, a battle oecured between
the Prussians and French of the 16th June,
1815, two days before the battle of Waterloo, in
which the Prussians lost 15,000 men, and the
French 6,800.
In the indecisive battle at Qnatre Bras, in
Belgium, on the 16th of June, the day before
that of Waterloo, the allies lost 6,200 men, and
the French 114.
At Waterloo the total loss of the allies, was
15.636 men. Napoleon’s was about 40,000.
Neither the Austrians nor Prussians can de
rive much encoragement from history to engage
in a war with France. The French troops have
only been matched-in these wars by the English,
the Spaniards and the Russians—scarcely by the
last named.
Another Tbaqkut—A Husband Kills his

in Cincinnati, on Wednesday night. A man
named Richard Mahone, the father of three
children, was deliberately shot and killed at n

the New York and Erie Railroad, lefl Port Jer

A sponge well saturated was applied, but hi the
'act, a drop fell 1 on, Mr keek’s face, which
aroused him. Springing up. the person clinched
the agent by the cravat and drew a six-barrel led
pistol. The mail agent seized the pistol just by
the cook, and the two had a severe tussuj for
ten minutes or more, during which time the
pistol dropped. The robber then attempted to
use a slung shot, which he also lost during the
tussel, and was altogether roughly handled.
During the senffle three or four express boxes
were broken by the parlies falling on them, and
the iron rods in front of the window were bent

Floating Brick.— Bricks that will float used
to be made years ago, but the afffbas been lost
till recently. A Monsieur Folpini has, it is
said, discovered their compositicm, which is said
to be fifty-five parts of siliceous finrth, fifteen of
magnesia, fourteen of water, twelve of alumina,*
three of lime, and one of iron. They are Infu
sible, and will float in water though one twen
tieth part of common clay be added to them.—
They resist water, unite perfectly with' lime,
and are subject to no change from heat or cold.
They are nearly as strong as common brick,
though only about one-sixth as heavy, or con
siderably lighter than water. They are such
poor, conductors of heat that one end may be
heated red hot while the other end is held in
the hand.
