M., in the Ist Presbyterian 'Church of the City of St. Louis, and be opened with a sermon by Rev. Taos. H. Samna, I), D., the Moderator of the last Asiembly. The Committee of Commissioners will meet at 9 o'- clock 4. 4., of Cm same day, in the lecture pow of the Ist Church, Valuable Discoveries ofeopper Ore in the Gadsden Territory. Wo had exhibited to us on yesterday a fine specimen of copper ore, which to all appear ance, contained a very large proportion of the pure metal, as it is visible all over the surface of the specimen. The mine from which it is extracted is situated in the Gadsden purchase, and, as will be seen by_ the subjoined abstract of a letter written to Mr. Cory, member of the Assembly of this State, promises to prove of incalculable valise. The letter referred to is dated at Camp Agua Caliente, Arizona Mountains, January 12th 1854. The writer some months previously chanced • to fall in with a party who were preparing to explore that portion of Sonora acquired by the Gadsden treaty, and to take possession of val uable mines, should they be so fortunate as to discover such. Tim party in time found a copper mine, which has proven to be rich and extensive. The ore has been assayed, and found to contain seventy .five per cent of cop. per, in addition to which there are from one to one and a half ounces or gold per hundred wci ght. This mine is within one hundred miles of teamboat navigation on the Colorado river.— !he writer, however, says thateight of the coin any were left at the mines to build houses and old possession of their claim, while the amainder are engaged in making explorations for silver. Sever n al n mines containing lend, nil. wry and some copper, also a little gold have been discovered. The richness of the speci• metes had not been tested. There is no doubt in the mind of the writer, that the country pos• sesses, in a great measure, the mineral wealth it is reputed to have. The gold mines are represented nn the poorest of nil. 'The silver and leitd mines appear as if they were worked some fifty or more years ago.— The cause of their being abandoned was the hostility of the Indians, which continues to this day to be dreaded by the Mexican race. The products of the country are sold cheap, but foreign goods are held at exorbitant rates. The writer says that he would like no better business than that of inerchandizing reithin the American territory adjacent to the new bonn. dary line. Dry goods, on which the tramper. tation charges are trifling, will yield an aver , age profit of one hundred per cent. Shares in the Company's mineral property are valued at from $5OOO to $50,000. The writer says that, although these pricer may sewn visionary, it should be considered that twenty•four men only have an inexhaustible mountain of ore, and containing , also gold en• ough to pay all expenses of digging and trans• porting the ore to Europo.—Sarremcnto tie. On the 25tb ult., 75 families passed Louisville, bound for Kansas. PHILADELPHIA MARKETS. There to no change to notice in the Flour market. The receipts and stocks continue small, and prices are firm.

I hope you will remember him, Though his face no more you see ; In Heaven again we all will meet, From all sin and sorrow free." On the,norning of the 14th inst., at the res• idenee of her son-in•law, Judge White, of this borough, Mrs. JUDITH McOoNNEI.I,, in the 934 year of hor,age. The deceased wits indeed a relic of the last century. She was born in Hay of the year 1763, in Frederick county, Virginia. While she was finite young her littler emigrated to Central Pennsylvania, yet in its rude state— the home of the notice Indian. With the events of the early settlement of Pennsylvania prior to the establishment of its present form of government, she was familiar and always retained a lively recollection. Many a time and oft" the writer of this has listened to her detailed nod interesting accounts of the den. Kers and uncertainties of what was their fron tier life. Her father settled with his family - in Huntingdon County, adhere she afterwards married Alexander McConnell, Esq., with whom she lived as a devoted wife until his death in 1822. Shortly after that time she crossed the Allegheny mountains and made her home in the family of her youti n , at daugh ter, where elm died. Mrs. McConnell was trimly 'a remarkable woman, and there aro ninny features of her long life to excite the pride and emulation of her numerous posteri• ty. It has been the lot of few women to live so long and so well. Her heart was full of the charities and sympathies of her sex. Her in tellect was ever vigorous and active. Early in life her mind was directed to religion, and to act as an humble, sincere christian was her -constant effort. An she lived and died—calm serene, ham. To the last the kindness and usefulness of her nature was manifest. But a few moments before her death, her reason yet unclouded, she was solicitous for the health and happiness of those about her and fearful lest she should be what she called a "trouble." In the course of nature, her earthly career was complete ; yet so necessary bud she be come to the household of her later days,that her absconee will bo an unreconciled reality.— To the immediate circle of her friends she seems to have an immortally, so long had she resisted the "fell destroyer." But the grave has at last achieved its victory. Full of years she now sleop3 the sleep of death, with the sweet unimorie. of a pure life about her.- "Nothing is here for tears, nothing to wail, Or knock the breast ; no weakness or con tempt, Dispraise or blame, nothing but well and fair, And What may comfort us in a death so no „Lk,” H.
