COMMUNICATIONS. For the 4,lluntinadon Mr. Humphrey Marshall, of Kentucky, ' closed his late speech in U. S. House of Representatives by the following admirable ' , summary of Whig princples: To add proper and fair facilities to coin- I memo: to improve the condition of our own, country; to promote the avelopment of its natural resources by a wish and be- , nificent system of Legislation: to ameliorate the condition by increasing the comforts of the American people; to nerve the arm of , labor: to encourage- art: to protect the in- ; ventions of genius: to sustain the dignity of our own country at home, by securing to every man his personal and political rights: to perform scrupulously every na tional obligation, and to vindicate prompt- , ly every right of our own country abroad: to stand upon our own, and not on foreign ground: to cherish and protect the integ- I rity of the Union, and to frown upon the I very dawning of any spirit which would lead to its destruction. These, sir, con- , stitute the principles, the philosophy, and permit me to say,. the pride of Southern pigs. THE New GOLD DC/MAR.—We were yesterday shown a specimen piece of the new dollar gold piece, which has been struck at the mint, and forwarded to the Department at Washington for approval. 'lt is about the size of a dime, and having an open centre of nearly the size of the word "Dollar," under which is a wreath, and on the other side "United States of , America, 1852." We think the coin a de cided improvement on the new coin now in use, as it is not so likely to be given out for another, as is frequently now the case. It will doubtless become popular, and supersede the old dollar, soon al put in .• • •• "Albeit noosed to the utelthigmuo.l, Their eyus reined tears Like the Arabic trees their ntetliciuttl genri."

A VALUABLEBRICK.-Ai journeyman mason, named Brefund, was employed to repair a chimney in the apartment of a gentleman residing in the Rue des France Bourgeois. While about his work the ma son broke a brick which he found in the chimney, and to his surprise discovered that it was hollow, and contained a bank note for £5OO. The workman was all alone, and might readily have appropriated this suns to himself, but he preferred to communicate the fact to his employer, who called to mind that about two months be fore he had written to Isis uncle at Amster dam, for a supply of money, and had in re turn recieved a carefully sealed package, on being opened, proved to be nothing but the brick in question, which the indignant recipient threw into the chimney, and wrote his uncle an angry letter on the subject, to which no answer had been sent. The gentleman was not aware that in Holland these bricks are made on purpose to send small sums of money, as making a more secure package than any other. The ma son was liberally rewarded for his honesty, and a letter of thanks and apology was des patched to the uncle. [Xi — Ex-Senator Haunegan, of Intl., has delivered himself up to the proper author ities for an examination into the circum stances resulting in the death of Capt. Duncan, his brother-in-law. Capt. Dun can is said to have admitted frequently that he slapped Mr. Hannegan in the face, previous to being stabbed. He died for giving him, without a murmer of complaint, only rearettintr. as lin maid th.i . A LARGE GOLD STORY.—A correspond ent of the Newport News, writing from San Francisco, relates the following incident: Two oonanon 7 looking persons entered the hotel this morning, just from the mines— , a man and wife. The male imnvidual look ! ed for all the world like a day laborer, and the female bore a close resemblance to an Irish scullion. She wore coarse, vulgar biogans, and to her girdle was attached a gold watch and chain, valued at least at two hundred dollars. The husband left the hotel for half an •lour, and retooled with a receipt for one hundred and fifteen thousand dollars, the value of the dust which he has just consigned for transporta tion to . New York. This sum has been gained by digging. The husband dug while the wife washed, assisted by her little son, aged about ten years. DISAPPEARANCE OF A LAKE.—A'lake about two miles and a half long, and loca ted eight miles from the village of Bright on, (Canada,) burst its banks on the 21st ult., and completely drained ont the water on the neighboring land. The bank thro' which the water broke was about forty feet in height The rush of water dug a chan nel twenty-five feet deep and one hundred feet wide., for a length of two miles, uproot ing forest trees, -carrying away mill-dams, and drowning two men. Thus occurred the singular phenomenon of a lake being dried in a few hours. THREE CHILDREN POISONED ISV ORNA MENTAL CAKES.-A late London paper speaks of the poisoning of three children, by eating ornamented cakes, which had been presented them on Easter day, as a present from a friend, one who died in dreadful agony—the others were saved by prompt medical aid. The Coroner, in sum moning up, regretted that many similar ea ses of death, caused under such circumstan ces, had come before him, and expressed a hope that a stop would be put to the sale of cakes ornamented with such poisonous material. A. (loon IDE A.- Thel.ouisana Sentinel proposes that on the day of the Presidential election in the several States at every poll thro'out the United States, a box should be placed, having inscribed upon it “Wash, ington Alunament Box," and underneath "One Dime to the -Memory of Washing ton." The money thus collected to go to words the completion of the Washington National Monument. lir Capt. Floyd, of the America Mail steamer, Washington, became insane during her last outward voyage, and several times attempted to wreck the vessel, so that it became necessary to deprive him of the com mand, and confine him in a Lunatic Asylum at Southampton, England. His madness was , produced by intemperance. 5 DR. HoOPLANInt GIMMAN this medicine will cure liver cotnplaint and dys pepsia, no one can doubt after using it as direct ed.

MED, May 10th, at liia residence in Cassville, Rev. Dr. .J Esst: Wrttattr,. in the find year of his age. The death of our highly esteemed vever able friend and fellow citizen, the Rev. Dr. JESSE IVittGur, in the fullness of his years, was perhaps no less deplored by all who were acquainted with the excellence of his worth, than if he had been snatched away in the vigor of early manhood. Ile became Ireligious in his youthful days, and subse quently a Minister of the Gospel, in which capacity he exercised l►iuiself arduously and profitably for upwards of thirty years— and the last twenty year: of his life was a worthy member of the Methodist Protestant Church. The disease with which he had been long afflicted was somewhat complica ted, the most prominent symptom of which was dyspepsy. Ile was confined to the house in the early part of the winter, and to Isis bed the last three months of his ill ness. Though his sufferings during his long term of sickness had been groat, and at ti►ues suffering the most excruciating pain, yet I►e bore it all with that patience and meekness which is characteristic only of the dying ohristian. Ile expressed no desire to live, but rather to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. As a Minister, he was zealous and logi cal—as a Physician, useful and untiring in his attention to the sick—as a citizen he was circumspect, and upright in all his in tercourse with society. In fine, through all his life were plainly visible those rare and excellent traits of character which con stitutes the christiau and the good citizen, and although we foil hero to recount the many 'leasing reminiscences connected with his history, yet long will lie live in the af fections of all who were favoured with his acquaintance. lle died- in great peace, leaving a bright. testimony of his prospect for a future state of blessedness, and to the bereaved companion and family we would say, though the affliction to them is great, yet they sorrow not as those who have no hope; for their loss is his eternal gain.
