But for us it is a most delightful retreat; whither we may escape from the hot sultry air of the narrow streets and breathe awhile a pure healthful atmosphere, not always disturbed by the din and tumult of business and bustle. Our city for a few days past has been infested with villains of every description ; this to bo sure is nothing 6trange, as wo are never with out an abundant supply ; but their exploits of late have grown more bold and successful than they have been heretofore.

The flames were extinguished however, before any material damage was done, and a man employed on the premises as lamplighter was arrested and com mitted to pribon on suspicion of having been concerned in these incendiary attempts. The play Wi.s performed as usual, and the house was thoroughly examined and a watch set. Not withstanding all these precautions, at about 7 o'clock this moriiiniug, flames hurtt forth fun ously from the roof, and within two hours notli mg ol the national uut inc uare wans remained, The whole interior was completely on lire bo fore it was discovered.

Sundry other documents were also presented but they brought out nothing further, Mr. Bradley, one of tho Prisoner's Coun ecI then addressed the Court.

Neutrality, he said, could only ho broken by nations, individuals as agents of tlioir government only can do it, nnd then their nations become responsible, This was Mr. Bradley's main point : he af terwards argued the legal points in the case, especially the incompetency of the Court to try McLcod on tho indictment' ly next Mitchell, tho Ex-Member of Congress was brought into this city on Monday and irottglit up for examination on charge of for gery.
