OBITUARY.
    
 The Widow of PHILIP S. RENSSELAER died on Wednesday last, at her residence in Albany, in the 90th year of her age.  The Register pays the following tribute to her memory:
     "Mrs. VAN RENSSELAER has been a resident of Albany, and her name and good deeds will live long after her departure.  Her kindness was a prominent feature in her character, and her charities were unceasing.  During her long and blameless life it was her good fortune to maintain a position that placed within her reach the facilities necessary for the gratification of her active benevolence.  She presided over countless charities, and in making thousands of hearts glad was rewarded with the consciousness of performing a pleasant duty."

     Captain ETHAN A. ALLEN, the last surviving son of Gen. ETHAN ALLEN, of the American Revolution, died at his residence in Norfolk county, Virginia, on the 6th instant, in the 77th year of his age.  He was born in Vermont, graduated at West Point, entered the United States army in 1804, and left it when the army was reduced in 1821.

     The Hon. WM. RUFUS PUTMAN, of Marietta, Ohio, died on the 1st instant, aged 83 years.  He was the son of GEO. RUFUS PUTNAM, who made the first permanent white settlement northwest of the Ohio in 1788.  The deceased settled in Marietta in 1799, and resided there ever since.  In 1801 he was chosen one of the representatives from Washington county to the Territorial Legislature.  The county then embraced nearly one-fourth of the present State of Ohio.  He was an honest useful man, and enjoyed the respect of all who knew him.

SAD ACCIDENT.
     On Thursday morning, as the omnibus running between Manlius and Syracuse, New York, was coming into the latter city the horses became restive and dashed down the hill.  The omnibus was turned over, and Mr. A. W. SPENCER, a merchant of Cazzenovia, was instantly killed.  Mr. LEVI MARTIN, the leader of a band in Syracuse, was very badly injured, his left shoulder and arm being broken.  Mr. JOHN C. SMITH, from New York, was also badly injured, and several others were severely bruised.

FIRE AND LOSS OF LIFE - About midnight of the 8th instant a fire broke out at Lafayette, Indiana, in the block of buildings near the canal, occupied by John Rose & Son and E. M. Weaver & Co., which destroyed the warehouses of those gentlemen, and the stores of two or three other persons in the same block.  The warehouses were full of produce, and the damage to property caused by the fire it is thought cannot fall short of fifty thousand dollars.  But the most lamentable part of the catastrophe is that Mr. Rose, the proprietor of one of the warehouses, and an Irishman attached to the establishment of Messrs. Weaver & Co., were burnt to death.  Both were in their stores at the time the fire broke out, but were unable to effect their escape.

MORE PAUPERS SHIPPED ON US. - There have just arrived in New York, via Halifax, 34 adult and 17 children paupers from Switzerland.  They testify that they were paupers at home, and were sent to this country by the Mayor of their village, who paid their passage direct to New York, but they were wrecked off Sable Island, and some party, to them unknown, paid their passage from Halifax.  Probably it was the Swiss Consul.  - N.

HON. JOHN Y. MASON. - Letters have been received in this city by the last steamer from Europe which justify serious apprehensions in regard to the health of Hon. JOHN Y. MASON, our Minister to France.  Mr. M. was struck with paralysis on the 26th ultimo, and, according to the last accounts from Paris - two days after the attack - his situation was such as to excite the deepest solicitude on the part of his friends.  As he is attended by several of the most eminent physicians in Paris, his situation, although highly critical, is not such as to preclude all hope.  - Union
