The affair of the Duchess de Berri has
given rise to many surmises. On the
22d Feb. the Duchess handed to Gen.
Bngeaud, Governor of the citadel of
Bi iye, the following declaration: "Impel
led by circumstances, and by the mea
sures ordered by the Government, alt ho'
I h id the most weighty reasons for keep
ing my marriage secret, 1 think it due to
myself, as well as to my children, to de
clare that 1 was secretly married during
iny residence in Italy." This declara
tion of the Duchess must be the death
bbtvv to the legitimate party. Everv one
recollects the general reprobation which
followed through all Europe the marriage
of Marie Louisa with Count Neiperg.
That of the; Duchess, in whom and on
whose son all the hopes of the legitimates
centred, will be more generally blamed.
The King of Holland, according to
Brussels accounts of the 5ib, had refused

The Sultan had therefore applied to
the RUssian Ambassador, Count Buten

fleet to defend the channel; and the Am
bassador had accordingly sent orders to
Sebastopol, but he had declined ordering
the advance of a Russian land force,
which was requested by the Divan. He
does not seem to be authorized to grant
this request,, as a courier has been des
patched to St. Petersburg for instruc
tions. These letters contain various
speculations on the conduct of the Euro
pean Ambassadors, which, however, are
put an end to by the official news that
the Austrian Internuncio had announced
the acceptance by the Viceroy of Egypt
of the proposals offered by the Sultan.
This news is given both by the Austrian
Observer and the Algemeine Zeitung. It
has caused incredible joy in the Turkish
capital, where, however, perfect tranquil

The Mails. There are few persons,
perhaps, who are aware of the enormous
weight of the Mails in some parts of the
country. We have seen a statement of
the mails, and it consisted of three port
manteaus and twelve canvass bass
weighing the enormous weight of 3318
pounds. It is said the Christian advo
cate alone weighed 1500 pounds. A
letter from the New York office, accom
panying the above statement, says: "This
is not only a light day with us; but there
is forwarded every day, papers and pack
ages by two or three other mail con
veyances which are not included; nor are
the quarterly accounts included, which
will weigh enormously." If, in addition
to this load, Admiral Rceside has to drag
with it several acres of the New Jersey
soil, as the United States Gazette face
tiously observed, we think he has an ar
duous task to perform, and has some
claims to the clemency of the editorial

Peru. Intelligence has been received

This requisition being refused, a bill was

tngton correspondent of the
New York Standard states, in relation to

Execution. On Friday last the negro
Washington, property of Mr. Richards
of this county, sentenced to death at our
last Superior Court, for the murder of
Mr. Charles Daniel, was executed in pur
suance thereof. We do not believe it
would answer any good purpose to give
a detailed description of this 'end of a
transgressor,' and we shall therefore
briefly notice the leading incidents, and
leave it to pass into the shades of ob
livion. At an early hour in the morning the
village began to be filled with people; the
volunteer company and the troop of cav
alry were early under arms, and all the
necessary preparations were made for
mov ing to the place of execution. At a
bout 12 o'clock, the convict was taken
from the prison, and in the custody of the
Sheriff, he was escorted by the military
to the Gallows, which had been erected
on the Poor House Tract, about a mile
from town. Having reached the spot,
the prisoner ascended the scaffold. The
assembled crowd took their places around
the Guard, in the surrounding trees, &c.
and has been variously estimated nt from
3 to 6000 persons.
The criminal appeared to be uncon
cerned about his fate, and looked upon
the assembled multitude with the most
astonishing indifference. His voice was
firm, and his whole system appeared to
be perfectly at ease. He stood up, or
rested in different positions as seemed
best to suit his inclination. He address
ed the crowd in an audible voice, and ac
companied his words with the most ener
getic action, stamping with his feet, &c.
The purport of his speech, so far as we
could gather it, was that he was innocent
of the charge for which he was about to
suffer, that the murderer was yet out; but
he did not know who did the deed. He
warned his colored brethren against
drinking spirits said that love of drink
had brought him to what he was, &c.
He declared his willingness to die, and
said he had rather be where he then was,
under the gallows, with his sins forgiven,
than to be at large with their burden of
iniquity upon his conscience, &c. He
called tw colored men to him and made
some communications in relation to his
After considerable delay, during which
he repeatedly denied any participation in
