Execution--The sentence of Death, passed on KINCHEN, a man of colour, for causing the death of Mrs. CROCKETT, by poison, was carried into execution, of Friday last, agreeably to the sentence of the court.  The number of persons assembled to witness the scene, was very great, notwithstanding a heavy shower of rain, which commenced as soon as he was taken from jail, and continued, until near the time of execution.
