Five Veal’S in Hie Stale Prison Dead. Mr. Seward’s Funeral. lu Reference to Speaker Riaine, Fanny Fern Dead. ’I lie Tribune on tlie Death of Seward. New York, October 11.—Thomas Cun ningham, the forger of Mississippi State bonds, was to-day sentenced to live years in the State prison. Jas. It. Spalding the founder of the World, is dead. Seward's funeral will take place Mon day. The Tribune to-day editorially says it takes pleasure in withdrawing, in the full est and pronipest manner, its imputations upon Speaker Blaine, in reference to sup posed transactions with the Pacific Rail road eastern division, being satisfied it was his brother who was connected with the affair. Fanny Fern is dead. The Tribune says of Seward . To-day. us the news of his death is telegraphed over the world, it is no exaggeration to say that in every court aad cabinet on earth, the tidings will come with some thing of a personal shock to tlie few who govern the many. In the Republics of Spanish America, tlie loss of a powerful friend and patron will be mourned. The statesmen of Europe will recognize the de mise of almost the only American whom they have ever regarded as their peer, and in the farthest East,in the uttermost isles of the sea, prayers will be ottered in strange tongues, to alien gods, fur the repose of the aged chieftain Whose white head and broken frame casts such a wonder about liis wide journeyings in the hamlets and palaces of India and Niphon and Cathay. After the death of Lincoln it was Sew ard's faith in human nature, his confidence that other men were, on the whole, as good as he was, which) led him to believe in and support the policy of Andrew Johnson, for the immediate restoration of tlie South. For this he sacrificed his po sition in the Republican party, and, at the election of General Grant without a compliment of civility, left that depart ment of State which lie had administered during eight years with a wisdom, and an adroitness, an unfailing courage, and an industry hitherto unprecedented in our annals, and which we may long look in vain to see repeated. XORTII CAROLINA. Radicals Blowing up the Senti nel Office. Raleigh, October 11.—A terrible ex plosion shook every building in the city followed by an alarm of fire. The Sen tinel office was lilown to atoms, by powder placed under the building and presses.

Seward lmd a tertian ague with a ca tarrhal complication and muscular palsy. Mr. Seward’s intellectual faculties were clear and vigorous to tlie last, save when disturbed by paroxysms of fever. Just after an effusion from liis lungs to-day, and thinking it would relieve liis breath ing, he was. at liis own desire, placed upon a lounge and bolstered up and moved from his adjoining bed-room into liis study, where, in tlie midst of liis hooks and liis literary and other papers, and surrounded by relatives and a few friends and all his devoted dependents, he breath ed his last. For the last hour of his life, as the pow ers of life were giving way, liis condition became easy, and he spent the time in affectionate leave takings of liis relatives and dependents, and finally sank quietly to liis last rest as if going to sleep. Flags are at half-mast in respect to Seward. Tlie Cabinet transacted only routine business. The Navy Department only was unrepresented. Coin in Treasury $800,23,000 ; currency $4,875,000.

Paris, October 10.—A permanent com mission of the Assembly to-day held an important meeting at which President Thiers was present. Matters was discuss ed on which there was considerable con flict of opinion. Gamhetta's political tour and speeches in the Provinces and assaults recently made on tlie pilgrims who continue to flock to witness the miracle of the Holy Virgin, were regarded by some of the mem bers ns likely to lend to trouble. Presi dent Thiers expressed his indignation at the outrageous treatment of the Pilgrims, which ho regarded as an attack on the Catholic religion and the national form of worship. Ho warmly condemned the course of M. Gambetta, who he said wus trying to divide the nation aud rouder tlie position of Hie government abroad more difficult. Thiers, who seemed inclined to break with the Left, still clung to the republic, and liis posiiive declarations in favor of that form of government were received with laughter by tlie monarchists of the commission. The report that Prince Napoleon in tended to return to France and possibly resume his residence in Paris was also considered.

I'lie sturdy farmers knows too well the comfort that uwuit him at the ISAACS HOUSE. To answer otherwise than affirmatively to the above mentioned question.
