done in one session of sir.ty days

shattered by the election of sreu a

t-ff-ret in this State by what the effect
has been in other States where this
evoleruonary eitmont has been in
tbiSeedency and held power. They
huve blighted the prospects of every
State where they fcsve made their
power felt, and so woujd they blight

Southampton, Oct. 25. The
steamer Paris, from "New Yors,
which arrived last night reports

with mountainous seas, which swept
over her deck. On the morning of
October 24th at 1:30, and duiing
the night of the storm, she came into
collision, 80 mOes from the 5cilly
Islands, with a bark or full rid
ship, the name of which it was im
possible to learn. The o'loers of
the Paris belieyed that the sailii
yeescl was cut completely . in wo.
The Paris stood by for five hour ,
until daybreak, with her boats in
readiness to rescue any of the crew
of the unfortunate vesEel that might
be seen, but saw no trace of the
Pbip. The vessel was struck amid
ships and it is thought she must'
have foundered immediately, all
hands on board going down wiihi
her. The lookout on board the j
Paris believes the sunken vessel to
have been a ship of about C,500 torus.
She was not seen until the Pens w;ip
so close to her that it was impossible
to avert a collision. The bow plate
of the Paris were slightly indented
