DEATH OF YOUNG COLEMAN.
i The Albany Advertiser in speaking of the
death of this young gentleman, says : 44 The ti
dings will break upon the world like the start
ling notes of his wonderful instrument. He
had just brought to perfection his iEolian At.
tachment, with which to fill the world with
sweet harmonies, when he was summoned a-
way from earth to join in the nobler anthems of
heaven. He had just returned
nexation and promote abolition ; and with a
constant propensity to return to his former occu.
pation of bullocking, he attempts to drive and sell
the Texians as if they were fat cattle.
Doubting the efficacy of threats in enforcing
annexation, the democracy resort to flattery, and
soothingly say, that Mexico will not make war
in the case, because of her weakness, and be
cause there is an existing treaty of peace be
tween that nation and the United States ; and

THE IAST OF TYLERISM.
The Madisonian, (the. organ of John Tyler,H
whiletacling as President of the United States,
has ceased to exist, and is now numbered among
" the things that were." The announcement
of its decease is made by the editor in the pa
per of the 10th instant. Theophilus Fisk and
Jesse E. Dow; have purchased the establish
ment, and on the first oCMay next, they will
publish a new paper to be called The Con.

DECISION ON THE LICENSE LAW.
A case has IatellyJeen decided by the Supreme Court
of this State. relative to the power of the Justices of the
County Court in the administration of the law rerulatinf
the Retailing of Spirituous Liquors. As our County
Court is somewhat interested in this decision, we lay be
fore our readers the point embodied in the decision,
made out at the request" the Editors of the Greens
borough Patriot, by a gentleman of the legal profession.
It is decided
l That the Justices have a discretion to grant or re
fuse a license : but that it is a sound feral AiTmii.
1 hat the Justices hare no-right to resolve that they
nut ibiiv a ucerae 10 none.
3. That the Justices are not bound to grant a license
to fery applicant who proves himself in the manner pre
scribed by the Act of Aasemblv tn ft man rf atnA
morl character ; bat they have a right to refuse a license
w man ot good moral character, on account of the
Pjac where: the tippling shop is to be located, or because
the public convenience does not require it because a suf
ficient number hath already been granted to supply the
4i That no mandamus will lie from any higher Court
to compel them to grant a license.
. ?l (Th if the Justices, on a fit and proper application
being made, should from corrupt motives, or from feel
ings of personal hostility and oppression, refuse a license,
they; would be liable to indictment. ,
' ! 6. If the Justices should commit an honest error in re
fiwu$ a license, they are in no way liable or amenable .

terfly. Mexico, would more correctly and justly
allege that annexation without her consent was
actual robbery, that when land is transferred the
purchaserordor.ee takes it with all incumbran
ces upon it, the land of Texas being incumber
ed with a war upon a Mexican claim, the pur
chaser takes the war with all its consequences.
The. act of annexation, when consummated, is
in fact an act of war, as the Mexican Minister
officially announced tq the President the U.
States, two years ago. .

THE EMPIRE CLUB.
New Yomc, AprU 6, 1845.
Some of the gentlemen of the Empire Club
paid a visit to Waterford two or three days since
to exercise a sort of censorship over the election
in that place, and keep thecitizens in order. In
carrying out their austere notions of what the
freedom of the ballot-box should be, however,
they came in collision with some licentious per.
sons, who were disposed! to he insuborinatend
to rebel at the wholesome discipline which the
empire patriots wished to exercise over the in
habitants of the village. Captain Ryndcrs, the
President of the Club, in that same paternal spir-r
it which he e vinced at the late meeting at Taro
many Hall when regulating the proceedings of
the great " democratic " party, now pulled the
ears of one of the unmannerly, villagers, who
had rashly given utterance to an opinion unfa
vorable to Locofocoism in the abstract. Instead
of submitting like a tractable and well-disposed
citizen to the Captain's rebuke, he foolishly re
sisted, and a serious disturbance war the con
sequence. One v Coiintrjr SIcClusky, the fides

feeble tribute of praise to those whose pious care has been
devoted so skilfully and tastefully to ifie"jrotcction and
adornment of the resting place of the dead in odr com

those improvements which have called forth the admira-,
tion of several correspondents, until a day or two agojif
when we were enabled to follow the hundreds who have
daily wended their way to the beautiful spot, which if

We have copied the above article chiefly for the pur

to tne condition of our Grave Yards. All of us know
how much they are neglected. It is wrong. The feeling

we strive', almost in vain, to catch a glimpse of the hum
