THE NEWPORT MERCURY is the oldest but one of the many newspapers published in the United States, and dates from June 12, 1758, at which time the office was opened by James Franklin, eldest brother of Dr. Benjamin Franklin, the press on which the two brothers worked in Boston still remaining in the office. The Mercury was published regularly up to the time of the landing of the British on the island, when the press and types were buried. The fact that the property was so secreted was made known to the British commander, who caused them to set up again, and during the stay of the British they regularly issued the Rhode Island Gazette. After the war the Mercury was again issued, and was published by one family for a period of seventy years, its dimensions gradually increasing from a few inches square to one of the large and respectable sheets of the day. The Mercury is independent on all questions of the day, and is, what it professes to be, a high-toned Conservative paper, adapted to the wants of a large class of readers. It is published and printed every Saturday, by Coggeshall & Pratt, 123 Thames Street; George C. Mason, editor. Terms, $2.00 per annum.

NEWPORT DAILY NEWS--Printed and published by Cranston 7 Norman; William H. Cranston, editor. Terms, $3.00 per annum. Office 144 Thames Street.

NEWPORT ADVERTISER is printed and published weekly by James Atkinson, at 124 Thames Street. Terms, $2.00 per annum, half yearly in advance.

THE HERALD OF THE TIMES is published and printed a weekly by Cranston 7 Norman--Wm. H. Cranston, editor-- at 144 Thames. Terms, $2.00 per annum.

    "Strange that a harp of thousand strings Should keep in tune so long." 
THE subscriber has several chambers to let in his house which is beautifully located directly opposite Trinity Church Burying Ground; he will rent the rooms with furniture, or without, as may best suit the tenant. There is, probably, no more desirable spot in Newport, for those whose souls are not entirely steeped in sin, and wrapped up in the flimsy veil of this world’s delusion; the occupant may sit at the window, and view the last home of man in all its mysterious and solemn grandeur,--and seriously reflect upon the great uncertainty of all things human. Here he can commune with himself, and meditate, in full view of the grave yard, on the final consummation of all things, and anticipate that universal crash, when the earth shall be burned up, and the heavens be rolled together as a scroll. We must reflect upon these things here, and be prepared with our passport when we meet the last Tyler, or we shall receive the fatal mark of the black brush; why, land! what is a few day’s sojourn in this miserable world, compared to a high seat in the Celestial Lodge above, where the Knighthood will be gathered in the pure robes of innocence and beauty: In order to secure the chambers, early application should be made, to

____________________________________________ ELECTION.--To-morrow is the annual election day in this State, and the ceremonies of the inauguration of the Governor, &c., will take place in this town. It will be quite an interesting week, especially as there has been no choice of Governor by the people, and the election of that officer will consequently devolve upon the Legislature.--We shall report the proceedings of that body during the week, and publish them in an Evening edition of the News, within an hour after the adjournment of the Legislature.
DIED In Norwich, on the 11th ult., of consumption, Harriet E., aged 25 years, daughter of Thomas Jackson. K Thus we have been called to consign to the silent grave, a dear, and much beloved sister; one with whom we spent many happy hours, during our youth; and one with whom we have taken sweet counsel since that time. But she has gone, gone, into the presence of the searcher of all hearts, to receive her reward. Death had no sting to her--she was prepared to meet it.--Ed. News. 
               "The Angel of the covenant Had come, and faithful to his promise, stood, Prepared to walk with her through death’s dark vale. And now those eyes, which once beamed loveliness On all around, were closed without a cloud. They sat as sets the morning stay, which goes Not down, behind the darkened west, nor hides Obscurely among the tempest of the sky, But melts away into the light of heaven." In this town, on the 26th ult, after a protracted illness, which she bore with Christian firmness, Mrs. Mary Hopkins, aged 57, daughter of the late Clark Taggart, Esq. In Portsmouth, on the 16th ult., Mary Ann M., aged 8 years, daughter of Mr. Edward Coggeshall. In New Bedford, on the 24th ult., Ada, aged 2 years, only child of Nathan E., and Catharine C. Hammet, formerly of this town. ____________________________________________
