Death is a bitter sorrow to the living, a shadow on the heart of the survivor, a desolation in the household. and yet some of the most attract-i> e phase* of human nature -have found their exhibition, and their apparent source under the influence of; and from the-e lessons of immortality. In all the life of Martin Luther, the incidents of which have come d'>wn to us with such varird interest, nothing is so touching as the melting tend' rness of his large and strong heart over the death of his child, his daughter Magdalena, at the age of fourteen years Loving her wilh all the strength of his nol»le soul, he took the emaciated hand? of the sick child in his own, cov cred them wilh kisses and exclaimed— “ Oh, how I love thee!” ' my God, ihy will be done.” “ .My good little daughter thou knowcst well thou hast a good father here below, but in heaven one far better Wilt thou not say,yea. to this?’’ *■ Oh! yes. darling father, father of my heart, bat the will of God be done ” replied (he child. The father clasped her in his ar.7is and prayed, and a flood of tears burst from his eyes. The child died in this embrace. Subdued and softened. he laid the beautiful head gently on a pillow, and whispered low, “ Poor child, thou hast indeed found again a father in heaven.” ‘‘His will be done." A day or two after, the little emaciated body was laid in the cemetery of Wii-temb rg. Luther was ‘ smitten to the heart.” and cried out, “ adieu, Lenair. hen, (little Lena.) adieu ! we will meet as^ain, behoved littU <itar thou wHt rise again and mhine lik^ a very diamartd in the firmament on hisrh—yea, like a bright sun." Walking to and fro through th * chamber of death he would exclaim “ Oh, how dearly have I loved her! It is the flesh that weeps an_d mourns—the spirit is not sad—my beautiful daughter is in heaven.” “ The will of God be done ” Months after, Luther wrote the following inscription, simple and tender and melancholly, to place above the grave of his child. “ Here. I. Magdalena, the daughter of Lather, sleep with the blessed dead, and lie upon my bed, at once my couch and covering; child of mortality was I. born in sin but redeemed, 0 , Chriit! wiih thy ever living blood.” If ever the image of Divinity seems impressed on the human heart, it is. when strong and passionate in its earth ly love it feels that the love of its Orea tor is greater still, when in its exceeding tenderness it resigns itself, through the strength of its deep love, to the giving up of its createst earthly happiness, to enhance th^* joy of the object of its aflTections. Thus when the crowd of mourners at th • grave of the “Little Lena” tried to console the suffering father saying, “ Bereaved friend you do in leed g r i e v e h e replied, Thanks for your sympathy, but I have sent an angel to heaven,” and in writing to a friend of his affliction he does n<>t call it, de.'ith. but the new birth, of his daughter Magdalena ; addintr that in the innermost chambers of his heart ■are engraven the lineaments, the words, the gestures, of his dearly beloved, obedient and reven-tial. “ LitVe > en a.*' Tt is evening again.

It would appear that she had gone to the cellar for potatoes, when perhaps, her husband became from some cause enraged, struck her in the left eye with his fist and knocked her down,andthen beat her head. Supposing that she was dead he went to change his clothes, and fled, and was last seen on Thursday afternoon, by some boys who were hunting in the woods about one mile west of his house, and going west. Henry Kolcomb, the murderer, is a son of the Hon. Amasa Holcomb, formally a Methodist minister, who has represented Southwick and Hamden county two sessions in the House of Representatives and one in the state Senate. Mr. Holcomb is a large man, about 37 years old, si.'c feet high, with dark hair and eyes, and weighs 168 lbs He was a very strict temperance man. was of sound mind, and never exhibited t h ! least sign of insanity. He was strict ly upright in all his dealings with his neighbors, and was a very pious man — was a member of the Methodise church, a leader of the choir, and always held daily prayers at home. As far as the town's people generally together deep research 'iid strong practical intellect, may have discovered and applied successfully the natiira antidotes to a large proportion of human disease?

A brother of John Brown’s first wife states that at the time of her death, some twenty-four or five years airo. the conversation and conduct of Brown strongly impressed his relatives with the idea of insanity on his part; and it is the opinion of his brother-in-law that ever since, at intervals the mind of Brown has been more or less disordered. -An enble of Brown’s, who might bit f u p p o s e d t o h a v e s om e k n o w l e d g e o f ary." Harrible Tra§«<Iy. We give below some of the general particul irs of a shocking attempt at murder, in the town of Southwick, adjoining Westfield "n the south. It appears that on Thursday afternoon, the 17th inst., a little son of Mr Henry Holcomb of 'outhwick.an only child of seven years upon returning home from school about 5 o’clock found his father and mother absent from home and the house vacant. Supposing that they had gone to a remote part of the tovvn on a visit, he passed the night with a neigh b iring uncle, and in the morning returned home, and not fiiHing anv one in the house finally opened the cellar door and called, “ Mother'*’ wnon some one as he thought, answered ‘ what?” He procured a light, and went nearly down the stairway, when he discovered his m 'ther lying in one corner of the cellar near th • foot of the s ta i r s insensible, and covered with blood. He was frightened and returned to the kitchen, where he found his cousin Emma, who had come over to see what had become of him — He said, “ mother is in the cellar and has fallen and hurt herself.” Emma went immediately home, and her father and brother, went to the house, and itook Mrii. Holcorab from' the cellar.— Sh6 stiil faisoBsibl© and unable to on good terms, but there existed an ill fi'eling between them, and that they were far from living together happily.— He was a man of strong feeliogs when aroused, and never forgot an injury, and wlieh provoked by his animals he treated them with cruelty. He was very stern in his disposition, and lacked those finer domestic feelings that impart happiness and love to the family household Mrs Holcomb on the other hand po-sessed a remarkable loving and tender nature and is of that class of women who want sympathy md affection, and long to feel the out gushings of a kindred soul She is 38 years old. about medium height, with brown, curly hair, light eyes, and pleasant and intelligent, countenance. .Mrs.Holcomb's father was insane -5 yrars. and a brother has recently been confined in the Northampton hospital for insanity, and it is thought she has shown symptoms of the sam • disease. The selectmen of the town have offered a reward of $200 for the arrest of Mr. Holcomb. Later news says Mrs. Holcomb is much b 'tter, and she says her husband '• called me down cellar and knocked me down with his fist, and then lound-ed me with a club.” Holcomb's fath.r and wife publishes a card desiring him to come home. Holcomb, volnnta ily returned to his father's house last week Monday evening He had managed to get to PhMa-delphia, where he had spent Sunday: and w'lere he seems to have concluded that his better way was to return im mediately to '^outhvvick With remarkable th .ughtfiilness for the pecuniary interests of the town which had offered the large sum of $l50 for his arrest, the constable took a written acknowledge-nient that he had surrendered vohmta-rily; to protect the town from payment o^ any reward to the officers who had spent nights and days in most harrassing searches and left the murderer with his father Hon Amasa Holcomb, as honor ary keeper. In the course of twenty-four hours however, the impropriety of such a step occurred to soin ^ one, and a legal warrant was issued upon which Holcomb was lodged in the lockup at Westfield, to spend Tuesday night. Mrs Holcomb, the victim, was alive at our latest advices, but was conscious only at intervals, md at no time sufficient ly clear in mind to explain the transaction. The occasional ejaculation and half-spoken sentences she utters, presents the crime of her husband with most hideous features. Holcomb says his wife was “ still sensible” when he left h e r ; he is reserved, but makes no effort to fasten the crime on any other person. His father is a venerable man of 70 years, and his tearful cry. “ It has almost killed me—' dont know but it wi’I quiet!,, touched the feelings even of them who made the arrest Holcomb vyas taken from the family table, the evening meal still smoking thereon, his father, m ther, sister and brother, being at his £xodus Of i>li3s<iiuri Slave!!. The accuracy of the frequent states ment made by the St’ Louis Democrat, respecting the rapid emigration of slaves from Missouri, having been question^ that paper says ‘The shipments have aniounted to hundreds per week, for several months past. The negroes are not only moving to the south by the way of St Louis* and the Mississippi river, but are carried off" in large droves through Southwes* lern Missouri into Arkansas, many planters and drivers preferring this as the safest mode of of transit An instance came to «ur hearing the other day, where one of the wealthiest citizens of i^latte county sent a drove of twohun-* dred slaves down through VVestern Missouri into Arkansas. We have also the estimate of a negro trader of this city, made in the hearing of a friend about ten dajs .since, in which it was carefully demonstrate ! that if the slave exodus from Missouri continues at the present rate for the next fifteen years, there will not be left a thousand negroes in our borders.” Pro;res? of E!i T h ay e r’s Colonf.

It is also proposed to have a steamboat, owned by Ceredo capitalists, to run between Cincinatti and Ceredo.

Wherei Vew-En^iland men and women go the free school will soon spring up. We observe also that 'Uss.

The Ceredo Lyceum also is in a flourishing condition. Large numbers of ladies attend its debates —•' We also learn from a friend in Ceredo “ that the prospects of a colony were never so good, as at present. This miserable Harper’s Ferry raid cannot injure us here, but is constantly helping us, bv exhibiting in striking contrast, the two methods of revoluti-mizing Virginia There are several New-England men of influence and of means too, here now. who are all much pleased with the country, and will probably make it their tiifire h-^me. non'. -Mr. Dean, Member of Congress from Connecticut, is visiting here, observing the progress of the colony, and the capacity and resources of the region.” Curtoiii Vlffect of Camomile.
