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.

____________________________________________ 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. ____________________________________________
At the Annual Meeting of the Artillery Company, on Tuesday
evening, April 28th, 1846, the following gentlemen were elected Officers

|Gov. Jackson will probably arrive in the boat, this evening,
from Providence, when the usual salute will be fired by the Artillery Company.
To-morrow will be a great day for Egg-pop and Blue Eggs, in Newport. From the demonstrations already made in the stores about street; we anticipate a very lively Election. ___________________________________________
The Artillery Company will make their first appearance to-morrow in their new uniform, to escort the Governor and Legislature, from Townsend’s to the State House, at 10 o’clock. ___________________________________________
Our friends in the Country, who do not reside more than thirty miles from Newport, can have the News sent to them, every day, free of postage, by the new Post Office law; will they not avail themselves of this opportunity to obtain a Daily Paper, for a trifle more than what they would have to pay for a weekly? ___________________________________________
