I understand that

\u2666 l"^, * discounts paper to the amount of1... jiKJ per year. J t was predicted that the?Wha.de Road would kill the place-thU d.X'g notlook much like it.rhe river at Lynchburg Is very high, from thelata rams, and you will lik.-ly to have a fr.-shecat Richmond in a day or two. The rain beyondLynchburg has badly injured the corn crop in ,Uauy places, particularlyabove Buford'a Deinit, onthe \ lrgiilia and Tennessee Railroad, where wholeQeliJit ure to tht* ground.

There are about visitors at this popularwa-tering place, the season here being verv late, andthe house just beginning to fill up. The improvements made aince last year, strike the guest withdelight and astonishment. The old railroad, whichextended fioni the Virginia and Tennessee Road tottie hotel, has been moved from its former location,and runs down an easier grade. Upon arriving, tin-visitor takes a seat in one of two verv substantialpass.-nijer cars, and at the tap of the he'll the brakesare unscrewed, arid the train goes gradually downa pleasant gorge, the distance of one mile, when asharp curve bring* him in full view of the now fa-mous "Montgomery White Sulphur." The mainbuildingof the premises, which contains the hall,reception, and diuing rooms, is located in the mid-dle of one side of a hollow square, is two storieshigh, and surmounted t.y a tufret of fair dimen-sions. Around the square are beautiful white cot-tages, of various dimensions, and the square itselfis a lovely lawn, covered with a net w( .rk of gravelwalks. At night, the picture is charming. Thetillage, as it may be called, lies embosomed amonghigh mountains, whilea magnificent August moonpours its lighton the scene, bathingthe white cot-tages, springs, trees and mountains in its <.ffnl-geuce. The dim. twinkling lamps, too, in front ofthe houses, like little stars, contend for a place inthe scene.

It is so common to '-puff" the faro at wateriujjplace*, that 1 shall refiain from following tho hadexample. The nrranpromentd of tho dining roomhere and bill of fare need none of that sort ofthing,and if it did. the best notice I could makewould be to »ay that Chan. 0. Thompson, of the"Our 1 louse,'' at Richmond, is the caterer. Bo-sides tho celebrated sulphurspring here, there isone of chalybeate, which, however, is of ratherdoubtful quality.

The amusements include bowling, billiards, pis-tol gallery,and a tine band of music.

Ry »hk Wait, August 6. 1857.Still it rains, thoughgently. We (not editorially,

but us up here in the mountains.) have had, how-ever. a few fair days, to the joy aud delightof eve-rybody, and hope that a "better time is on thewing."

1 regret that I'm a compelled to announceto yon.in advance, that nothing has happened of a recentdate, at all interesting or exciting; nothing, atleast, calculated to make the hair on any of yourreaders'heads, stand erect. None of the stagi s. asyet. have upset, and no hair-breadth escapes?noneat least as I have heard of. And if anything ofthe kind should happen to take place, I will writeimmediately.

I took a slight peep in the White Sulphurballroom, a few nights ago, and couldn't help feeling

iii the midst of all tiie gaiety, to nee ho manvfine dresiten and ugly, (please put the last word invery small letters, an I am not a married man.)faces on exhibition. In fact, it produced a melan-choly that lasted uie for severaldays, and I ain't en-tirely recovered yet. A pretty womanand a prettyhorse are two of theprettiest animals on earth. Anilif I know myself well, and 1 think I do. there isnothing that gives me more pleasure to look nt andenjoy at a distance than either of the aforesaid an-imals.

I hope no exception will he taken byyour "fair"readers, to what I have said, as I make nocompar-ison at all. but if so, I hold myself responsible andprepared at all times to accept challenges at theshortest notice. 1 have been engaged with seve-ral jewel! in my life, and like everything else. Ihave gotten used to them; and, indeed, rathercourt th in avoid them.

The present proprietors of the White Sulphurare about making many very important changesand improvements in the buildings at this place.

They have already contracted with Mr. Brock-way for theerectiou of a large brick hotel. Thisbuilding,I understand, will bo 400 feet long, SOfeetwide, and four stories high. The main or centrepart runs back 10S feet !%? 60 wide, with ceiling 18feet high.

In this buildingwill Vie the dining room, thehall room, office, reception room, post office, bar-room, and accommodation for 300 persons besides.It is to be finished by the 16th June next, and tocost between $SO,OOO and $100,000. Mr. Brock way,the principal contractor, has sub-let the brickwork to Mr. Bagby, of Staunton, and also the plas-tering. in order to facilitate the work. I don't thinkthe location has been fully decided upon yet,and this, by the way, is a very important matter.

Nature has done her part ill adorning and beau-tifyingthis place, aud all that is now to be done,is not to mar its beauty by employinga jack-legde-signer.

The White Sulphir is undoubtedlya sweet, pret-ty place?everything that the eye of the most fas-tidious could desire?but to call it the '-gardenspot of Virginia" is a misnomer, for 1 aui certainthere are fewer vegetables grown there and there-abouts, than any place 1 know. However, Mr. Clif-ford furnishes the table with every variety fromRichmond. So I suppose it's all the same any how.Adieu. Diego.

The place whichwe selected for the occasion,was situated at a mineral spring,about four milesfrom t'larkesville, In a very thick forest?the mostsuitable place for a pic-oic I ever saw.

There wore three counties repre-sented by them, and it was impossible to say whichof the three bore off the palm for loveliness andgrace.

[From the Rochester Union, August 6.]Affray Between a So lit licrner and a

Wuiter at Niagara Kali*.An affray occurred at Niagara Falls yesternav

morning, causing considerable excitement there.?I'he particulars of the case are stated te us by dif-ferent parties substantially as follows: A gentle-man from the South?Kentucky or Missouri?withhis wife and daughter, were stopping at the Inter-national Hotel. On Tuesday they were oil theCanada side, and took a ferry skiff to return.

After the ladies had taken seatsintheskiff.auimpudent colored man took a seat between them,llie gentleman who accompanied these ladies, thehusbandof one and father of the other, requestedthenegro politely to leave the seat that he mightoccupy it. The fellow refused to change his seat,and gave abusive language in return for politeness,file white man ejected the black 0110 by force fromthe seat and choked him some.

Yesterday morning the gentleman and his Avifecame to the usual,aud after nearlyall the guesstshad left the breakfast table at the Internationallater than diningroom. After takiughis seat at thetablebeside his wife, the liegrow ith whom he hadthe altercation iu theskiff on the previousday, cameup to him and said, ''you are the mau who "chokedme yesterday." The reply was "yes, aud lought tohave throw n you into the river."

At this point the black fellow struck the man onthe head with a heavy tumbler, felling him sense-less to the floor. The wife of the gentleman thusassaulted, rose, aud with commendable heroism,dealt the fellow a blow which restrained liiiu.?Without an in*tant ot delay, she ran up stairs tothe rooms she occupied,aud finding the door locked,her husband having the key. she burst the dooropen, seizoda revolver, and ran to the dining room.Hy this time the black waiters had passed theircompanion out of the house, aud out of immediatedanger. Tolerable quiet was restored by the inter-ference of the proprietors of the house and friends.Thenegro who had caused the disturbance ran tothe river bank, intending to escape to Canada, butdid not succeed. He was arrested by a constable,aud while on his way to answer to the magistrate,in passing a hotel a shot was fired from the secondstory window. The ball did no mischief, but passednear theconstable and his prisoner. Who fired theshot, no one has yet ascertained,or at least it is notpublicly known. It is charged upon both parties.

The negro was taken before a magistrate, exam-ined and found guilty of the assault. The magis-trate decided to sentence the fellow to pay a fine oftin and go to jail for three months.

TheSoutherner who was assaulted came forwardand requested that the fellow be not sent to jail.?The magistrate then changed the sentence to alineof J'J'i, which was paid.

Attempt Assassination and HighwayRobbery.A desperate conflict with robbers occurred on theroad leading from the Camden and AmboyRailroadto Westfield, a short distance from Riverton, inwhich a highly respectable young man, of Phila-delphia. Mr. (lustavus B. Junes, made an escapewith his life, displaying at the time much heroietu.Shortlyafter eight o'clock, it apjiears, as Mr. Joneswas passingthrough the "Pines," on foot, on hisway to Camdeu, he was suddenly seized by threemen, one of whom was a stalwart negro, and vio-lently hurled to the ground. An attempt wasthen made to stab him with a dirk, and rifle hispockets, but in this they were foiled, in conse-quence of Mr. Jones having gained his feot, auddealt them some powerful blows with his fist,sending two of the rascals reeling into a gully.

Mr. Jones nest attacked the formidable negro,whom he struck in the mouth with u lantern be-longing to the party. knocking out several of histeeth, and literallymashing his face to a jelly.?The discomfited negro immediately betook himselfto the "Pines," howling with pain. Perceiving thatthe remaining assailants were about to renew theattack, young Jones quickly placud himself in analtitude of defiance, crying "Come on, come 011;I'll show you what sort of game you're dealingwith!" and upon their approach, he struck oneofthe desperadoes upon the head with the lanternwhich had proved so effectual in ridding him of thepresence ot the negro, felliug liim to the groundand rendering him insensible. Instantly rushingupon the other, he struck him a blow with his fist,when therascal tripped him, throwinghis weightupon him, made a desperate effort to crush thebreath ont of his body. The combatants rolledovef in the dust until they were both well nigh ex-hausted. At last the fellow released his hold, and,springing to his feet, ran off, hotly pursued byJones, who finally overtook him, and almost whip-ped the life out of him.

Bath Alum Sprigs, Aug. 6th, 1857.I address to you a few lines on the Virginia

Springs, hoping that to those who have alreadymade this pleasant tour, my communication mayawaken agreeable recollections of a more agreeablereality, and cause some of those who have nevervisited these beautiful retreats, to forget for awhile the irksome details of business and quenchtheir aurfrtaerafames in the mineraland thermalwaters otWestern Virginia. From Richmond toMUlboro3itatk>n, on the Virginia Central Railroad,Is about o»e Tundred and seventy miles, and theroute and railway accommodations are all thatcould be desired. From Millboro' (by stage; toISath Alum is ten miles. Here arc wells of chaly-beate and alum waters which are famed for theircores of dyspepsia and cutaneous diseases. Andhere we have a cool and every way desirable re'reat,with accommodations not surpassed even in thecity. Five miles west of these are the WarmSprings, with" first class hotel accommodations for3'io persons, and under the best ofmanagement. Apool of SS feet diameter.whichis filled by naturewithliving water of temperature M" Fahrenheit, offersto us themost delicious bath in theworld. South-ward, at a distance of five miles, we find the HotSprings owned by Dr. Goode and managed by Mr.Woodward, formerly of theSt. Charles. In connec-tion with /lis name nothing need be said of comfortand good management. The baths haTe a temjiera-turef.f 108°. and produce many enres of rheumatismand other diseases. Three miles from here wereach a medicated spring, which has been justlynamed "All Healing." Mr. Porter, the proprietorof this, vies with those of the other springs in theabundance and excellence of his tabic fare. At allthese springs the air is pure, scenery delightful,huntingand fishing facilities unsurpassed, and thecompany cumme U fiiut I have noticed amongthese Count Sartiges and Gen. Robles. In view ofthese inducements, I can but advise all weary devo-teesof business to throw asido Journal and lodgerto forswear urbane life for a time, and "rusticate.

Mr. Jones then directed his steps towards Cam-den, which place he reached in a faint condition,through loss of blood from a cut hp received, andthe severe physical exertion lie had made. Herehis situation was made comfortable at the hands ofa kind-hearted lady,andhe was, in a short time, ableto proceed home.

our noble specimen of "YoungAmerica" is bntnineteen years of age, and is a very intelligent andwell-informed young man, as his conversation at-test*. In stature he is rather short, and exceed-ingly well developed. Thefather of young Jones,we believe, acquired consumable celebrity in bisearlier days, through his skill in the useof "nature'sweapons," ami, judging from the ability alreadyshown by the son in a pugilisticway, he will, erelong,we are free to say, be a terror to all villainouscharacters that venture in his path. The fact thattho blows struck by Mr. Jones in tha encounterwere mostly dealt with bis left hand, is an addition-al verification of the old saying, that a '-left handedman is a dangerous foe to contend with."?l'hilaJel-phia Ledger ikh.

The news in the meantime spreadlike wildfire all over the city, aud the excitementgrew intense. An immediate trial of Rainesw-as demanded, and finally it was agreed that he

should be hung on the spot, without judgeor jurv.i V.'''" P r °cured and put around his neck, andalready he was being drawn up to the limb of anoverhanging tree, when he expressed a wish tomake a confession. The crowd yielded and let himdown to the ground.STARTLING CONFESSION.He said that he aud two men, one named JohnVuaries, from South Carolina, and the other calledRuowiton. had laid the plot by which Stephenswas robbed and murdered, and that the same menhad murdered another man a short time before andthrown the body into the Migfiouri river, lie statedalso that he and the menKnowlton andQuarles be-longed to an organized body of tweutv five nit«n,who lived and carried on the business of robbingand murdering in Leavenworth city, on the islandopposite the city, and in the towns of Lawrence

and Topeka.

The crowdthen went off is pursuit of Quarles and Knowltou.»ud in a short time had them arrested. Amongthe revealed conspirators was Win.

At these conclusiveproofs of the correctness of the coufessiou ofHaines, the people were deeply moved, and held

counsel together in large and small parties duringthe whole night.TUB PROCEEDINGS OF SATURDAY?QUARLKa AND BAINKS

We here give the narrativeof Mr. Stewart. Hesays:?1 went to the mayor's office 011 Saturday morn-

ing. ami found an immense crowd awaiting the re-sult of the examination of Woods and Kuowlton.Haines and Quarles were in the calaboose. Whilethe examination was going on, Judge Lecoinptewas outside, making a speech and expostulstiii"with the angry crowd in favor of law and order.?ihe cry of 'Hang'em, the d?d murderers,' arosefrequentlyfrom the mob, but the milder counselsseemed to be prevailing, when at once some oneshouted,'To the calaboose! to the calaboose!' andaway a crowd of about titty maddened men start-ed in that direction. The balance of the peoplefolioweil after, in smaller parties, leaving JudgeLecomptealmost alone, and the mayor's office re-lieved of its throng of spectators. They had beengonu about fifteen minutes, when I heard a greatyell. J startedafter the crowd, and followed it tothe bank of a creek, which divides south and northLeavenworth, where there was a steep bank, andon its edge a large elm tr»e. 1 reached the spotjust in time to see Quarles suspended from the tree,gasping in the agonies of death at the rope whichwas around his neck, while several of the mobwere swingingonto his arms and legs, to make hisdeath sure. His body had hardly ceased its con-vulsions when the shout was raised for Haines.The rope was placed around his neck, and hewas led to the edge of the bank, when some oneof the citizens appeared by his side, aud with awatch in his hand demanded five minutes' time forfurther confessions. They granted it: when Hainessaid, if they would let him, he would show themanother man in town who was concerned in theoperations of the gang. He was then taken to thecalaboose, but for some reason did not give satis-faction to the people, and they demanded his body-to be returned to them. Judge Lecompte againaddressed the people, and with Some effect, forthey seem to divide into two parties, the one clam-oring for thehangingof the prisouer. and the oth-er demanding a trial for him. Marshal Denis ofthe territory was also present, and though he ex-erted himself with all his power, he could notmaintain his position at the door of the calaboose,nor prevail on thecrowd to disperse.Ihe wife ot Haines also appeareJ; and, inspiredby the dangerous situation of her husband, took aheroic stand on the entrance, aud endeavored bvfrantic threats and entreaties to stay the wrath ofthe populace. Hut all efforts were unavailing' thepeace party were overpowered. Judge Lecoinpte'svoice was drowned by theshrieks of the mob. Alarge piece of hewn timber, perhaps twentv-fivefeet long and one foot square, that was lying nearwas lifted up by a crowd of men. and plnnged'with fearful effect against the calaboose door. Thesight of the wife's distress and the sound of herscreams, mingled with the raging* and shrieks ofthe infuriated mob. was too much for me, and Iturned my back and walked away. I heard ano-ther blow from the piece of timber, and a simulta-neous shout from the crowd, which told methatthe door had given way. and the prisoner wasat themercy of the people. 1 walked hastily around thesquare, for, with all its terror, there was fascina-tion in thesight, and reached the spot just in timeto see the mob rushing down the street with theprisoner toward the elm tree. I pursued, andwhen I reached the spot the body of Haines wasalready iu the air, and his last death-struggles wereshivering along his limbs. The crowd then ap-peared to be satisfied. Woods ami Kuowltonmeanwhile had been placed in an omnibus andhurried off to the fort. The city continued verymuch excited up to the hour 1 left, but no furtherviolence was anticipated. All sorts of stories pre-vailed. and many of themysterious disappearancesand robberies which haveoccurred iu the territoryare all being referred to this band of murderers.

IMMENSE OrgaS.?The great organ placed in thetown hall at Liverpool is one of themarvels of mu-sical mechanism.

The grandsource of wind is from two immense bellows eachhaving three feeders, placed in the vault below thefloor of the hall. Thes» are blown by a steam en-gine, consisting of a pair of oscillating cylinders.?There are besides twelve other bellows, or reser-voirs, each giving its own appropriate pressure ofair to those stops or pipes which it supplies. Thepneumatic lever is applied to each of the manualsdistinctly or separately to manual couplers. Tothe pedal organ there is a double set of pneumaticlevers; but the most elaborate use of this power isfound in its application to the combination ofstops?it being exhibited in a compound form toeach organ individually, and to the whole collec-tively, where byone operation theplayeris enabledto produce a combination of stops upon the entireinstrument at once.

, Mrs. Sarah Miller. by throwing him from a r«aiI porch of Mrs. M.'s house to tho brick pavouienti bolow, on Monday last, the 3d iust.' Mr9. Miller, the mother of the deceased, statedthat a few minutes before her child fell, she lefthim in the porch in care of her daughter, Harriet\ ntomi, aged eight years, while she stepped to another part of the house to attond to some of heraffairs. Caroline was thou in the room of \<ue oti':e hoarders, but Mrs. M. had barely passed out ofsight, w lieu tile prisoner came into the porchwhere the children wore, aud ordered Harriet Vir-ginia to go to tho hydrant and bring iu a glass otwater. The little cirl objected at first, said she hadbeen left in care ot her little brother by her mother,and told Caroline that she would find water in th>dining room: but the prisoner said she did notwant that, and must have some from the hydrantTo oblige her, Harriot took the glass aud startedoff. at thesauie time asking Caroline if she wouldtake her little brother up stairs with her. Carolinereplied that shu would not,but would leave himthere for her to attend to. Harriet got the waterand was returning with it. when Mrs. Miller heardthe scream of hor cook woman. Hastening ont toascertain the cause, she found her child in MrLockwood's arms, aud supposed him to ba dying.?She took it. returned up stairs, and found Carolinein the diuing rootu, shaking her finger in Harriet'sface and tellingher that she would be whipped forlettiua her brother fall. Seeing Harriet distressedMrs. Miller assured her that she attached no blameto her for the injuries received by her brother, who\u25a0lied in about eight hours after his fall. Mrs. Millerthen believed that Caroline had been the cause otthe death of her child, but determined to sav m-thing about it at that time. She was satisfied oi' aroliue s guilt, because of her nnkindness t» MrsM.'s children, all of whom were treated badly byher. and the oldest one of whom was severely-choked by her three weeks before.

Caroline then said thatshe did know all about it?that when Harriet wentup for water, (the(the prisoner ! picked up the childin her arms, went to the porch railing to look overfor Harriet, and while thus looking, the child fellfrom her arms to the yard below. The railingswere too high for the child to have fallen over, andtheplace at which he fell was not the most conve-nient onefrom which to look to thehydrant.

After hearing this statement, the Mayor ad-journed the examination until this morning, andremanded the prisoner for another hearing.

Wji. S. Davmox. Police Justice.They theu retired, Dr. Kisk saying that Mrs. Cun-ningham could not be removed without extremedanger.

The Kvening Post has the following with regardtoMrs. Cunningham,after her acquittal of the mil*,\u25a0ler of Dr. Burdell:

It is said that the visitors at Mrs. Cnnningham'shouse have been very numerous. In the day timewomen,but no men, are seen to go there; but in theevening, men?sometimes to the number often, fif-teen or even twenty?would be seen there, Indul-ging in noisy revels far into the night, as late Mtwo or three o'clock in the morning.lhe performances, according to their accounts,w ere of a very boisterous kiud, and generally heldin the very room where the fearful tragedy was en-

acted. There they would dance, shout, halloo. Jump,laugh and clap their hands. One of their favoriteamusements was said to be a game of ball, whichwas almost always played in the room where themurder was committed. Often while these revelswere in progress, low people would gather about,shouting, "Ha, the mnrderers! Bring out the wo-mau that killed I)r. Iturdell!" Ac., indulgingtheirprejudice in the broadest accusation and most ob-scene epithets.

Some of the neigliliors assert that they have oftenbeen kept awake by these clamorous proceedings,ls>th inside and outside the house, nearly all night;and had resolved to enter a complaint against thehouse as a public nuiscauce.

It is generally understood that Mrs. Cunninghamhad little or no money, and that she has suppliedherself upon credit with the means of a livelihood,trusting to the decision of the .Surrogate to placeher in possession of the estate. She furnished thehouse in an elegant manner, not long after her ac-quittal: and it is rumored that she bought the fur-niture upon credit, promising, in case the decisiouwas in her favor, to pay double the usual price, thedealer securing himself in case of failure by a mort-gage upon the articles.

It is stated that she was very much annoyed bybills, and has frequently turned her creditors off ina very rude manner, especially laborers whom shehasemployed to do her work One of the neighborsupon the opposite side of the street says that thes*poor people would go and rihg the.bell, and whenMrs. Cunninghamcame to the door, would demandmoney. She wonld tly into a passion, shake herlists, order them away, tell thenj they hail nobusi-ness to trouble her, «c. After going a few times,they would lose allpatience, and frequently mountthe Bt'-ps. shouting that Mrs. Cunningham was "auold reprobate;" and with such unsavory epithets,rail upon her to come out and pay them.The last act in the Bond street tragedv gives un-qualified satisfaction in the neighborhood, whichthe people make no attempt to conceal, but on thenutiHiv, openly exult in the prospect of gettingid of the family. The noise and disquiet is tem-porarily increased, but they see a prospect of a

Diath or Muor Graham.?On the 27th nitRichard Graham.a wealthy citizen ofSt. houis coun-ty. Mo., died. He was a son of the late RichardGraham, of i*rince William county, Ya. The Bt.I«juii Republican says:

He was brother of George Graham,action Secre-tary of War ilutiufjthe administration of PresidentMonroe, and subsequently Commissfoucr of theiieneral land Office; of John Graham, first C. 8.DUtrict Attorney for Louisiana, Secretary ofLeg»-ti>n ti» .Spain Commissioner to the South Americanilepublic.ami Minister Plenipotentiary to Hratll,and of Mrs. Catherine Ramsay, of the city of Wash-ington?all now deceased.

Mayor Graham entered the military service do-ring the last war with Great Britain, and servedwith distinction as aid-de-camp on the staff of Ma-jor General Harrison; he participated in all of theperils and hardships of the Northwestern army,and was promoted to the rank of major for his gal-lantryand good couduct. His relations with Gen-eral Harrison were peculiarly intimate,and he wa«,during his life, the cherished and honored friend ofbis commander.

The war over. Major Graham was appointedIndian agent for the extended territory of Missou-ri, in which office he continued until IS'A». Hewas also appointed by the President one of thecommissioners to establish the boundary line lotIllinois.

Taking it Coolly.?The following is the latestyoke upon John Bull:

In amoment somebody rushed back and luformed himthat the boiler hail burst.

"Awe!" muttered the KngHshtnan."Yea," continued his informant, "and sixteen

persons have been killed.""Awe!" grunted the Englishmanagain."And?and" said his interlocutor, with an effort,

your own man?your servaut?has been blown intoa hundred pieces."Awe! I,ring me the puce that hat tye key ofmy port-mantruu!"

Another Loophols tor Mrs. CtxxUfQham.? Lawis one of the exact sciences, and requires mathe-matical certitude in each of the steps of a proceed-ingbefore It imposes a disqualification or a penalty.Mrs.Cunningham, by the hasty proceeding of theI >i.strict Attorney, has not only the advantagewhich is supposed to arise from not havingfullyconsummated the crime which she hail intended,but she has also a chance of escape through anotherloophole left open by the premature proceeding ?

It is contended by ihe legal profession that Mr*.Cunningham would not come within the statuteagainst palming off a supposititious heir to pro-perty, unless it is decided in the Surrogate's Courtthat she is actually the wife of l)r. Burdeil. Jn thewords of the statute, it is essential to the crimethat the child fraudulently produced should beproduced "as the child of parents whose childwould be entitled to inherit." If Mr». Cunning-ham was not married to Dr. Burdeil, the child pro-duced, supposing it to have been her own, conldnot legitimately be the heir of the deceased, andtherefore the personation does not fall within thetermsof the statute,which calls for the personationof an infant born of parents whose child would beentitled to Inherit.?/*»'/.
