Moriüs, was forraany years a member of Congrega from Veriaont, and alwaj's a warm and ardent supporter of tbe polio}' of Jeffereon ; a gentleman of the old school, the confideuee and respect of the whole peopie was bis during all the warm political excitoments ofthat day. ïhe fatber of Thomas E. was a lieuteuant in tbe navy, aud sotved with distinction in several engagemests witb Algerinc and West Indíapirates. He died suddeoly in a stage coach a Aiken, South Carolina, wherc ho had been to recruit hishealth. Adjutant Thomas E.

Ekbison, Esq , of tlii;? city, and basresided here the last two years, where he bas won bosts of friends, whose best wishes go witli him to tbe battlo fields of his country. He will jnake a popular and efficiënt oflicei-, and possessing, as be does every trait wbicb goos to make up the measure of a true man and soldier, he camiot fail to win distinction in his uew spherc, In tbis connection we are most happy to be able to state that the Independent Regiment promises to bo the most efficiënt military organization wfaich wül leave the State. Col. Stockton, sustained by some of the very best in on ín tbe State, is woiking wonders, in spite of all opposition. Lieut. Col. Riiedle, a known aud tried soldier, bas tbe confidonce of all, and the subordinatc officers aud men, feeling that their lives are entrnsted to neithër imbéciles, idiota or cowards, are truc as steel. Our best wishes are, as they always have been, with the Independent Regiment.
