An cxamina tion took place at Lowell last week, before the Police Justices of a young man charged with stealing a promissory note made by him to a young girl, to whom at the time it was made, he was engaged in marriage we learn Irom the Lowell Courier, that the complaint was entered by the overseer ai ino Liawrencc mills, anil the young woman was Eiiinmoncu as a witucis, and appeared, unwillingly. From tho testimo ny in tho case wo havo gathered the fu lowing summary of focts. Tho defendant and witness had been for somo months ii timate in what is called in the country courting way. She lent him money, for which ho gave his notes. He omitted his visits, and after a while, she, wanting tho money, caused tho notes to bo sued. Sub scquently tho suits woro abandoned, the notes taken up, and a new one given for 200. At the time of these transaction, a reconciliation look place he promised to marry nor iney mutually ogrecd to keep tho giving of the new note a secret1. and things went on in the old way. A snort i line ociurc tne trial, ho called upon her one morning, found her sick a-bed her nurse present and told her he was published to bo married to another girl, and had come to settle with her. pav her tho money, and toko up his note. Upon Mb asking to sec tho note, she gavo the keys of her trunk to her nurse, and direct, cd her to bring her (the witness's) bank book, in which alio said the nolo was, with out opening it. The nurse did as sho had been directed, and then left the room. Neither tho nurso nor thu witness could say positively the nolo was there, for the witness fainted, and became wholly uncon scious of what passed. Upon the nurse's return to the room, after a considerable absence, she found the witness nearly, if not quite senseless the defendant gone the bank book on tho window no note, and no money. There are thirty boarders belonging to tho house where theso events took place. Sometime oftcrwards upon being questioned by tlio girl's brother about paying the girl what lie owed her, he said, 'I have got up my note (or notes, the broth. J ur was not certain which.) and that is all I want." After this, the girl consulted coun id, and by advice, inquired of the boarders if they had seen any money in or about her room, and (hoy denied that they had. Af ter tho scono at the sickbed, and beforo this examination, tho defendant was mar ried. The court ordered tho defendant to appear for trial at the court of Common l'leae, December term, at Cambridge. FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 18. Tho result of the Presidential canvass is still a matter of doubt. Thus far both par. tics havo carried all the states they relied upon as certain tho Whigs by increased, and the Tories by very diminished majori ties, with tho exception of Now York, where Mr Van Burcn's majority will ex. cced 20,000, In Pennsylvania, the contest has been an unexpectedly close one, end the result is not yet certainly known; though, in all probability, Mr. Van Buren has carried it by a few hundred votes. Tho contest in Virginia has been very close. Thus far, tho Harrison ticket is a few hundred ahead. In Connecticut, which last Spring gavo 3000 majority to the torics, tho Van Buren ticket has prevailed by a reported majority of from five to eight hundred only. In Maine and JVew Hamn. shire the torics had the field to themselves. Vermont gives II arihson an unexpected majority of near seven thousand; Ott'o, toy 10,000; Maryland between four and five thousand; Delaware 500, the largest ma. jority ever given in that state since the present division of parties. Comparing theso results with former es. timatcs, we bco good reason to hope that Mr Van Buren will not receivo the vote of the Electoral College. A few days will tell. New York Citv. The Sunday News gives the official Canvass in tho City, by winch it appears the Whigs havo made a successful campaign. They havo carried their Recorder, Senator, eight of the thirteen members of assembly, ond two of tho four members of Congress Curtis and Hoffman.

In several of our recent numbers we have spoken of the natural advantages and ofthe late im provements of Oniim River Lower Falls. While so many plans arc forming, and so much capital is employed for turning the natural advantages at tho Falls village into sources of wealth, we are glad to see its moral improvement is not forgotten. We learn that on Wednesday of last week, a Church was duly organized there, with promising and favorable prospects. We understand that 30 or 40 members of the Rev. Mr Converse's Church, who reside in or near the Fall vilbjjc,- were solemnly act apart and formed into a Church under tho most harmonious and pleasant circum stances; and that the Church thus formed, intend, on tho opening of another season, to erect a house of worship on a scale suit, cd to the present and prospective wants ofthe placej Gov. Marcy has dciignatcd Thursday the 15th December next as a day of public Thanksgiving, and recommends its due ob servance. Governor Vescy, of Maryland, by the advice oftho Executive Council, has issued a proclamation bearing date at Annapolis, Nov. Olh, appointing Nov. 21st for the convocation of the old Senate and present delegates, to form tho General Assembly. The Governor declares that the "bid Sen aloof 1831 remain by tho Constitution in power until legally superseded, which they would have been had not the 18 Van Bu rcn men attempted a revolutionary move ment upon the Slate. He calls upon all the officers, civil and miliary, to hold them selves in readiness to put down any overt act of treason on the part of those men and their abettors, and says the Constitu tion of the Slate must be preserved. With this proclamation before them, and the rebuke of tho electoral vote, the 18 rccus. ants must feel in a "bad box." JV Y Star. The Rhode Island Legislature has unan imously resolved to recieve tho share of the surplus revenue, to which that Slate is entitled by tho act of Congress, but it did nnt agree on any mode of distributing it. The Committee to which tho subject was referred, reported in favor of employ ing it in tho establishment of Free Schools. Right. Tlio engineer of the British Steamboat Royal Tar, islo be tried for his life at St. Johns, for having caused the loss of this boot and so many lives by his culpa ble carelessness. Tho owners of the boat will also be held responsible for having employed so improper a person. New Hampshire Election on Mon day last, passed offas it came on, without pngoging tho attention ofthe voters suffi ciently, scarcely, to induce their attendance at the polls. From ono third to one half the usual number of votes wero thrown In most of the towns, and in tho absence of any concerted opposition, tho Van Buren ticket received more than three quarters of all the votes cat. The aggregate in this stale will not exceed twenty thousand. In well contested elections tho vote of (his stale oxceeds forty-five thousand. The result may servo to show that even in N. Hampshire there is very little regard for Van Burcnism beyond the influence of of fice holders.

This important decision must settle the question which has long been the bone of contention among the rival embryo cities in that quarter, and winch has given so much consequence to the boundary dispute between Ohio and Michigan.

A detach ment nf four thousand under command i Gen.

Within a few days past the government has raised a loan of (300,000, which will enable it to put their warriors on the march for Texas.
