See how they fade away !
And a? they, withering, one by one,
Forsake their parent tree,

A buried friend to me.

Judge McLean. This distinguished
citizen has written a letier to a friend on
the subject of the Presidency, which has
appeared in the harlottesv ille Advocate.
It has been stated in other quarters, that the
Judge will not in any way permit his Dame
to be made use of, so as to inteifere with
the nomination and election of Mr. ( lay.
The following is an extract from the Let
ter above alluded to:
"No one who is named for the Chief Ma
gistracy, from a re-pectable source, should
feel himself at hbeity to say that he would
decline a nomination for that office. But
1 beg you to believe, my iersir. that -this
remark is not prompted by a vanity which
leads me to suppose thai my name coold be
favorably considered by the contemplated
Whig Convention. The friends of Mr.
Clay, in consideration of his eminent qual
ifications and long public services, are look
in sj with no ordinary solicitinle to hi nomi
nation. And I assure you, that I have no
wish, by the obtrusion of mv name, to sep
arate my fiieiids, if 1 have any, from their
present association. I do not desire and
would not receive the presidency, if within
rilV reach, as the instiument of a nartv.
Indeed, I should count it no honor, to have
my name associated with the down ward
course of our Government, and such a
course is accelerated, and only accelerated,
by ultra partyism. To bring back ibis
Government to its old foundations, to re
store its lot character, its former purity,
energy and elevation, would be an achieve
ment second only'to that of Washington's.
An achievement which would make any
individual the favored son of his Country.

HORRIBLE MASSAC R E. Dest rue
tion of Ihe Nestorian Christians by the
Turks I he pure and upright Nestorian
Christians, dwelling in primitive simplici
ty and happiness in their mountain fast
nesses, have been sought by the blood
hounds of Mohammed. &. doomed to annihi
lation. The circumstances connected with
this sad event are melancholy in the ex
treme, and ate detailed by a correspondent
of the London Morning Chronicle (writing
from Constantinople under date 17ih Au
gust,) as follows:
You have been informed of the combina
-'I.. i h t I i
j tion between the racna oi iviosui ami sev
i eral powerful Kurdish chiefs for the exter
minalion of the Nestorian Christians, or
Chaldeans. Letters received the day be
fore yesterday contain a deplorable account
of the results of the attacks of the united
troops. They had penetrated into the cen
tre of the Tiyaree districis, burnt the villa
gesand churches, destroyed the crops, and
put the inhabitants of both sexes to the
sword. Three, or according to other ac
counts, five brothers of the Patriarch have
hecn slain, his mother was cut in half, an!
his sister horribly mutilated. The patri-
arch himself had Med to Mosul and taken
refuge in the British vice consulate.
Thus a sect which had preserved its inde
p mdence during centuries, and had resi---tpd
the persecuting sword of Islam, when
wielded by the most powerful and most
intolerant of the followers of Mohammed
which, in its simplicity and isolation, h ul
maintained the doctrines and forms o!
a prim itve church for above fourteen cen
tiries, and which had escaped the corrup
tion of religion,
of morals, and of character.
consP'cuous in all other Christian sects
of the List has now, in the weakness of
Mohammedanism and the strength of Eu
ropcan Christianity, been delivered ovt r
to dest ruction.
Although the Turkish authorities merit
the strongest condemnation for ihe part they
have taken in this massacre, yet there are
ot h-rs concerned who are almost eqtnllv
j responsible for the results. The history of
the fall of the Nestorians is a new example
of the consequences of a system pursued b
foreigners in the East, which we canno
contemplate without the utmost indigna
tion. All those who have been the direci
and indirect instruments of their destruc
tion, although they may not have anticipa
ted a result of so serious a nature to their
intrigues, and although they may now
shelter themselves under the cloak of re
ligion, they have been guilty of a great
crime against humanity. In their moun
tain fastnesses the Nestorians had retained
their independence for centuries The fi-s!
western traveller who succeeded in pene
trating into them was Dr. Grant, an Amer
ican missionary. His object in visiting,
them was the establishment of schools and
other means of instruction. No sooner
had Dr. Grant met with some success in
tlie mountains, than the Roman Catholi
missionaries at Mosul, supported by French
political agents, endeavored to countetact
it.' The English High Church was also
jealous of American encroachments in the
midst of a sect still venerating Episcopacy ;
and an additional firebrand was thrown
into ihe country last autumn, in the person
of the Rev. Mr. Badger. During last
winter the three parties the American,
the Puseyite and the Roman Catholic
have waged an open warfare among them
selves. The Americans, who had been
j first in the field, only acted on the defen
sive; the influence they had already acqui
red among the Nestorians, enabled them,
without much difficulty, to retain their po
sition. The object ofthe two remaining
pa ties was to ejeci me Americans, anu to
establish their own influence. I hey did
not act in concert, for their mutual enmity

Badger pointed out the danger of Roman
Catholicism and French influence in the
mountains; the French, in return, the dan
ger of English influence. At length, the
combination we have described was form
ed, and those alone who were innocent
have fallen victims to them as their otdy
saviours the mi nister of Christ, and the
teachers of civilization.
Strict justice compels us to state that the
Americans are in this instance without
blame. They established themselves first
in the mountains, and their efforts were
successfully directed to the improvement of
the inhabitants, without any ulterior polit
ical design. We believe that had the
Church of England zealously co-operated
with them as Protestant Christians, instead
of opposing them as heretical enemies, the
disasters we have described would not have
occurred; as it is, one of the most ancient
and most interesting sects in the world
interesting from its origin, from its lan
guage, and from the purity of its Christian
ity has been sacrificed to the religious
quarrels of American Independents, Eng
lish Puseyites, and French Roman Catho
lics. The number of persons who have perish
ed has not been ascertained. The popula
tion was about one hundred thousand.
Neither age, sex, nor condition met with
mercy. All were sacrificed by the savage
Turks. N. Y. Sun.

Dreadfu! Explosion! We lran from a
passenger who came up last night in the
steamboat South America, that a powder
mill, at High Falls, about 7 miles west from
Catt-kill, was blown up yesterday afternoon
about 5 o'clock. There were six persons
in the building ai the lime of the explosion.
all of whom vveie blown lo atoms! Some
300 kegs of powder are sid to have been
in the mill when the accident occurred.
The foreman was indisposed, and the per
son having charge of the packing and dry
ing house is supposed to have been intoxi
cated. The report of the explosion excited
considerable alarm at Cattskill, many per
sons taking it for an earthquake. A similar
accident occurred at this same place three
or four years ago, when four persons were
killed. Albany Eve. Jour.

street, knocked down the driver of the
