There is truth in tiie remark that Edward
Everett is not a newspaper writer, aud never
will be. Vf.i'.h all his immense talents, he

ply to Washington Irving, Longfellow, and all
the other well known literary gentleman in
this country. The list readable paper in this
country is the one published by Saxe, the wit
tiest poet in Vermont. S axe is a wit, a schol

that his poverty is the cause of the rash act.
He is restored with difficulty, and sympathet
ic people raise a purse for him, and he de
parts. He raised S25 in this way last week at
Dayton and $40 at Sandusky, and departed
with a "free pass" on the railroad, to commit
suicide at some other place.

and suicide, that has ever come to our knowl
edge. It appears that two brothers, named
"William and Robert Buford, have been resid

the restraints imposed by the presence of the
injured husband, the younger brother deter
