Lord Durham, we are happy to learn, is getting better.

The journey to Carlsbad is given up ; and it is probable that his Lordship will be removed to Cowes as soon as he is able to bear the fatigue of travelling.

Some alarm has recently been created in the family of the Datchess

of Argyll. It appears that the governess became so excited after the murder of Lord William Russell, as to induce a belief that her reason was affected; a belief, we regret to add, continued by her subsequent behaviour. The courageous conduct, however, of the Lady Emma Campbell prevented a threatened attack upon the Dutchess ; and the unfortunate lady hiss been removed from the mansion to a place of seen- rity.--Neraiay Port. A correspondent of the Morning Lieraid gives some particulars of the occurrence mentioned by The presence of mind and courage exhibited by Lady Emma Campbell were indeed very remarkable— the Morning Post.

'• It appears that the lady who lately lived in the noble fnielly of Argyll as governess to the beautiful and amiable daughters of the Duke, is a Swiss. Some time after the murder of Lord William Russell, the Lady Emma Campbell, who was in bed with one of her sisters, was alarmed in the middle of the night by some person shaking her by the shoulder. She immediately awoke ; and was horror-stricken to find her governess, the Swiss, leaning over the bed, with a large knife or dagger in her hand. The governess asked Lady Emma, in a manner betraying considerable agitation, on which side of the bed 'her mamma the Dateless slept.' Perceiving the frightful weapon which the unfortunate woman held in her hand, and, as may well be expected, exceedingly terrified, the Lady Emma Campbell, notwithstanding,, with apresence of mind molt extraordinary in one so young, sprang oat of bed, closed the bedroom-door, and demanded the resion of the conduct of the misguided governess. Tie Swiss replied in an angry tone, and peremptorily commanded the young lady to retire to rest, and not to disturb the household. Lady Emma Campbell, however, refused to do so, and went and placed her back to the door, in order to prevent the escape of the governess. The woman thereupon used threats and entreaties, and ultimately tried to thrust Lady Emma from the door. In the midst of the scuffle, one of the sons of the Duke of Argyll (the eldest, we believe) passed by the room on his way to his own chamber. Hearing a noise in hi, sister's apartment, he tapped at the door, and was immediately admitted by the Lady Emma. The governess was then found in a state of great excitement ; and after the Duke and Dutchess had been called in, the was removed to her own room, and locked up for the remainder of the night, some person keeping watch at the door for the whole time. On the following morning she was sent home 0 her friends."
