The trade of the Amazon is estimated by
Lieut Herndon at two millions of dollars,
and he is satisfied that the establishment of
Bteant navigation would greatly ..increase

Justice Done at Last. —Tho lion. Thomas W, Dorr, of
Rhode Island, has been restored to his rights as a freeman ,by
tho legislature of the State, The act depriving him of those
rights was the most high-handed outrage over perpetrated by a
political party in this country. Mr. Dorrhad beenolected gov
ernor of the State by tho people, who rightfully considered them
selves the sovereigns, notwithstanding tho old monarchical
charter denied them their rights. For daring to comply with
tho wishes of the people, the whig parly of that state, tried Gov.
Dorr for treason, deprived him of his rights as a citizen, and
imprisoned him ns a felon. Well might tho parties who did
this act be styled Algerines. Tho deed might have suited the
atmosphere of Algiers, but was nt war with all the principles
and Teclings of this country. Wo rejoice that tho foul disgraco
has been wiped off our country’s escutcheon, and tho rights of|
the people nnd their champion have been vindicated.-2?to At. !

12 o’clock. Ho continued in this stato until about a quarter
past 3 o’clock, when ho died. He declnrcd his innocenoe be
fore his death. The Coroner summoned a jury, and held an
inquest in tho case. A post mortem examination takes place
to-morrow nt 10 o’clock.
Georgia and the Nebraska Bill. —Tho following resolu-j
tion has been unanimously adopted in tho houso of delegates,

Resolved by Ihc General Asscnibly of the State of Georgia ,
That opposition to tho principles of the Nohrnska bill, m rela

jin such, opposition are unfit to be recognized as component
j parts of any parly or organization not hostile to the South.
A Religious Hyfocrite. —James Cowper, (says a Baltimore

figured in N. York lost summer, was brought before tho Mayor
