MFLANCHOLY OCCURRENCE. —Ou Wednesday
last GOUI.D PUIKNEY, of Monroeion committed suicide
bv i-bnoting himself through the head with a pistol. The
deceased was iu Taylor's bar-room, iu company with sev
eral others, and stepping into the hall the report of a pis
tol was heard, and he waS found in the agonies of death.
No reason is known for the commission of the act, and
those whose presence he hud just quitted observed noth
ing unusual in liis appearance or demeanor. It is sup
posed that a feeling of despondency was the cuu-e of the
ra.-h act. Mr. P. was about 35 years of age, and leaves a
wife and four children.

Isa?- Special dispatch from Washiugtou an
nounces the receipt of'official information of the
ratification of the Chinese Treaty. The Treaty
has been received at Washington. Mr WARD
returned to his quarters on board the Powha
tan on the 17th of August, and reported that
he had received very kind treatment from the
Chinese. Young LA on, who was captured at
the I'ei-ho, was released in deference to Mr.
WARD, by whom he was received and delivered
over to the British Commander. Dispatches
from Com. TATNALL confirm the reports pre
viously received of disturbances at Shanghai,
growing out of the forcible abduction of
Coolies. The frigate Mississippi remained at
Shanghai during the visit of Com. TATNALL to
Japan. Advices from that portion of the
East India Squadron stationed at. Nagasaki,
states that a collision had occurred at that
port between the Japanese and the captain
and crew* of an American merchantman, and
that the frigate Gennanloitn was prepared to
render assistance. The result is not stated.
Com. TATNALL proposed to proceed to Jcddo
to make arrangements for the transportation
of the Japanese Ambassadors to the United
States, but, iu his. dispatch to the Navy De
partment, the Commodore expresses a doubt
whether it is the intention of the Japanese
Government to authorize the departue of the
SAD AFFAIR — SUICIDE NEAR CANDOR. —We
have received from a source worthy of credit,
a statement of a most melancholy affair. —
Charles Covel Pierce, a young man of about
'22 years of age, respected atid esteemed hy all
w ho knew him, committed suicide on the raorn
of the 11th inst., ly hanging himself with an
ox chain to a hemlock in the Woods near the
residence of Mr. Lewis Griffin. The only
cause assigned is melancholy, arising from a
fe:.r that he might be injured in the estiina
tiou of the community by defending himself
from charges made by a Mr Ward, that he
had slandered his wife and daughter. His
friends tried various ways of cheering him, but
without avail. On Friday morning he arose
early and went out without his coat. This
was the last seen of him alive. Towards noon
he was found hanging to a small hemlock tree
with an ox chain round his ueck.
It appeared he climbed up the tree, and
fastening the chain with a long hitch to the
tree and around his neck, threw himself off,
and the jerk evidently broke his neck. There
was no trace of a struggle though his feet res
ted on the ground.— Ovoego Times.
