A to tho fourth chargo the judgej advocate mkI U would lubmit a paper tt lb Court to- morrow, giving dig reasons for not proceeding to call wituecscs as to that charge, until lio had received the opinion of tho Attorney General. i ue judge auvocaio tl then read tho following apor, which ho ttalcd was drawn up with a icv of avoiding objections hereafter. Thci judge advocate, before tho examination f testimony begins, desires to nlnin in dm ourtthat ho duos not regard himself as occu. position of a prosecuting law officer in tho civil tribunals. Ilia duty he believes akin to that which was devolved on tho English judges nt that timo when traversers were put on trial iviumui urn privilege oi counsel, a prosecu ting nfilrcr in tho American Court, where the benefit of assistanco is always allowed tho do. fendant, usually contents himself with present. i.iiiih ami 11 compcilCU 10 TCSOri o witnesses believed to have a favornbln fnolimr toward tho defendant, studiously uses no more than is absolutely indispensable ; because otli erwisoho would bo prevented from sifting their testimony by cross examination, or ntlackin" by way oi positive- iinpeaclimout of character inoiiiu inoy ocar witness contrary to what bo bo ioves tho truth, tho principle being that hoono .I..II ,l... .11 I!. !.!

I could by a single witness prove llio hanging of Midshipman Spencer, Ecamen u-romweu ami oinail, uy order of Commander Mackenzie, and close the caso ; tho ruloof law icing, mat after the death is shown to have oc iiirrcil, actually or constructively bv the defend. ant, it is presumed to bo murder, and itis his u ty to prove a minor degree of criminality or his ntiro justification or excusability in ctl'octing This will be llio general course in civil iudi attires morderto retain tbo rights of cross-ex amination and impeachment. Tho dutv of n udgo advocate is as I hate staled, sunnoscd to be that of the English .ludiro in cases without the privilege of counsel, but the Judge's rights were, In ash antm'.ucsllon that would be Ifiral from either side. 1 shall not expect, therefore, tj bo restricted by tho technical rules in these partic ulars, and be treated and restrained as on ordi nary prosecutor. I wish to elicit tho whole truth, whether fa vorablo or adverse to the defendant, and if I do not extract what legally ought to servo him nually with his own counsel, it will bo nnlv from inferior capacity, knowledge, and that sa gacity which a partisan feeling does only give. Hut I must be apprised in advance by the de fendant and his counsel of their intended course. Do they design not to contradict my privilege to ask any questions that wonb! l.n cgal trom either side, or is it meant nfim- tho confusion of slovenly practice before Courts, iu nisisi upon niy uuty as the Unglisli .niugc, lor mo uenent o 1 10 i ernm ant. .uf it the American prosecutor for the disadvantage of the Government?

If I am not to have, vviiuuui exception, mo iiuerty ot an examina tion in tho nature of a cross examination of my own witnesses in such cases as my judg ment would imply it as necessary for the a. taiiimont of truth, let the defendant say so, and I shall conduct the cause after the manner of a law officer in ordinary cases before a r.ivil tri. lunal. I shall call onlv tho witnesses whn' will mako tho case against the defendant. Mr. Duer said that he nuilo aft-mod with il,n judge advocate that his duties were of a judi cial cnarar.ier, anu mat no did not stand in the character of a public prosecutor. Of course ho was not to bo confined by any technical rules in win examination oi witnesses. Tho judge advocate continued: Thi in thought by tbo Government to be a case of great importance, and it is not unlikely that an asso ciato of masterly ability, and whoso capacity has been enabled by ago to command tho respect of tho whole country, may be sent here as a co adjulor in consultation. I shall not proceed in the trial till I am advised whether such is the design of the Government.

The Judgo advocate stated to the Court that an eminent member of tbo Now-Vork Bar had a paper which ho desired to Jay before the Court. lie himself had seen tne paper, ami it contained nothing improper. Tho President said it had better be submi ted in secret conclave. The Judge Advocate, after the consultation with Mr. Uutler, said it was an application for permission for Messrs. Uutler and Charles O'Connor, of tho N. York bar, to act as Coun scion tho part of the friends of the late Phillip Spencer. The Court was thon cleared to onablo the Court to decide on llic application. On the re.nponing of the Court, the Jud"o .nuvocaie rcau the lollowing paper : 1 lio undersigned be? to state that ihnv l.n- boon employed by tho relatives of actin" Mid fhipnnn Philip Spencer, one of the persons for tbo murder of whom Commander McKenzio is on trial, to attend tho trial and take part there on, as counsel if permitted by the Court.

At tho recent session of tlio Court of Com inoti I'loas at Eliznbctlitown, Essox Co, N. V. James Hishop, was convicted of llio mur der of his wife nt, Cliostorficld on tho 12tli Nov last, and is sontonced to bo hung on tho 17th, March next. On Saturday the 21st of January, being tho last day of llio court, tho prisoner, James Hishop was placed nt tho bar, and asked what lio had to say why judgment of death should not bo pronounced against him nccording to law. IIo answered "I liavo nothing to say I throw myself on your mercy." Judge Willard, thon ad dressed linn in substance as follows: 'James Hishop: Tho circumstances which wore proved against you, on your trial, present a caso of aggravated enormity. Thp deceased was your wilo a feeble and unresisting wo. man; who, notwithstanding your abuse to her, was attached to you she was entitled to your loyo and protection she always treated you with mildness and respect, and never gave you any provocation for the repeated acts of cruelty which you practised upon her. The testimony shows that you bad been in the habit, for a long time of bentinp; her in a barbarous manner that on the night of the 12ih of November last, you came homo and found her in bed with your child that you ordered her to get up and she obeyed you that you then, without cause, re newed your acts of violcnco upon her, inflicting from 75 to 100 bruises upon her person, one of which, a blow upon her head with a club, occa sioned her death. You have had a fair and im partial trial, by a jury of your own selecting you have been ably defended by learned and in genious counsel, who urged iu extenuation of the act, every consideration which could bo suggested. Hut it has been unavailing to you ; all who heard the trial must agree with the jury that you arc guilty of the murder of your wife. It is not merely with a view of distressing your feelings that I have thus referred to your barbarous and inhuman conduct. I wish to awaken you to a sense of your awful condition, Hut a few days remain to you of life. Soon you must appear beforo another tribunal whoso judgments are unerring. It is not to us that you are to look for mercy, but to God our painful duty leaves us no discretion. It is not a more scheme of human policy, Hishop, that dooms the murderer to death", lie is so punished because God has said that the murderer should die, and civil governments are tho more instruments, in this respect, for exe- cuung ins win. If, Hishop, you have over supposed that the actions of the present life, havo no relation to another state of existence if you havo never learcu mat any punishments await the guilty beyond the grave, I entreat vou to snend tho remainder of your life in examining the subject, and in preparation for your final doom. Altho' lion, neioro whoso bar you must appear, is a God of infinite justice, bo is a God also of boundless mercy. It is to Him rather than to us thi.t you must plead in this trying hour. Call to your aid the ministers of our liolv reli gionseek through the mediation of the Sa vior, a remission of your sins. By true repon tenco you may yet through Him find hope. dui no assurcu mat no repentance will bo of any avail to you, which does not lead you to feel and to confess the wickedness of your own ucart. Now listen to tho sentence of tho law. which is that you, James Bishop, bo taken from this bar to the common jail of this county, and bo there kept in safe and securo custody until Friday, the 17th day of March next, and that on that day between the rising and sotting of tho sun, you be taken to the place of execution, provided by law, and bo then and there hang ed by the neck until you ba dead and may God Almighty have mercy on your soul ! The prisoner clasped his hands and respond ed, " God Almighty havo mercy on my soul." FROM WASHINGTON. Satciidav, Jan 23. House.

RESOLUTIONS AT DEMOCRATIC MEET INGS. In most of tho mcetinirs which have been held by Democratic associations for llio last six months, wo havrgnoticcd; llio very especial nnd studied pains which havo been taken to qualify tbo opprobalion which has been expressed ol llio conduct of tho Ex ccutts that " while wo do not approve all tho mcaLpf his AdministJalion, wo givo him great credMLis Vetoes, &c. &C."

The following extract ofa letter from Pal ermo, Doc. 1, appears in ono of the late Lon don papers. The day before yesterday, passing along the Marina, or public walk that skirts the ex quisitely bcautitul bay of Palermo, and cast ing my eyo ever tho range of the Madonian mountains, and beyond tho picturesque hills of Termini, I saw resting above the snowy ridge of hoary-headed old Etna (which lies literally east of sunriso from lierc) a long line of feathery whitish cloud, which, from its pe culiar trccliko shape, I knew at once to be smoko from the volcanoc. Accordingly, to wards night the sun had dropped down into the bay of Mondello, a deep-red lurid glare became distinctly visible at tlio loot of tho column of smoke, and all the world was then aware that tho volcanoo was in active opera tion. This has continued ever since, dimly dis cernablo by day in a pillar of cloud of that peculiar form which an eyo experienced in eruptions instantly perceives to bo tho vapor from a crater and more conspicuous bv nieht in a body of deep red fire, of tho apparent size of an ordinary haycock, but brightening and lessening fitfully with tho swells and lulls ot the blast ot the firoy furnace. Tho height or Etna is the best ascertain ed of any lolly mountain in tho world. Cac- ciatore, tho present Astronomer-Royal at Palermo, and our countrymen, Sir John Ilercholl and Captain Smyth, tho celebrated trigonometrical surveyor, by processes entirely independent of nnd unknown to each other, all fixed it at 10,874 feet English, not differing a fathom in the three cumputntions. So exact a coincidence, in a caso in which several compensations had to bo allowed for, must necessarily havo been partly accidental: but, as Dr. Wollaston said of it, the accident was ono upon which no thrco fools could bv any possibility have stumbled. It is worth observing that Etna, which is more thautwicc as high as Vesuvius, (about twice and a half) nas not nan so larga a cone ol clinkers and ashes at the top, nor is its crater anything like so largo or deen as that of Vesuvius. which latter is in fact quite a model volcanoo, as if inadu for show. Generally, in volcanos, tho height of the cone and depth of tho cra ter aro in tlio inverse ratio of llio wholo heights of the mountains to which they belong, It would seem as if the expansive forces with in tho volcano, liavinu a creator vertical height to work through beforo they reach the surface, cither do not eject tho scoria,' and ashes so far, or in so groat quantity, or per haps both theso circumstances combine to rendor the hollow conical cup at the top small in diameter and shallow in depth in proportion as the gonoral elevation of each volcanic mountain is creator. Tho present great eruption of Etna (it is at this moment tlaminc awav with undimin ished brilliancy and grandeur) is the first that has pcen visiblo at Palermo since 1S32. Intelligence travols slowly in Sicily, and wo nave not yet una any authontic advices from the scene of action. E. J. P. S. I have just seon a letter from Rip osto, within fifteen miles of the crater. Tho hurly-burly becan its nother on Sunday niphr The smoko that afternoon, and the drying up of the springs, betokened that Enceladus was getting fidgctty ; and in the dead of tho night tho mountain heaved and quivered like tho midships of a three-decker, when she pours her first broadside into the ribs of tlio enemy. A roar succcodcd louder than thousand train of artillery, and myrads of red not rocKy tragmonts shot up to tho heavens. io Java had yot begun to flow. Many per sons hero saw. or thoucht thov saw. it float. ing down tho flanks of the mountain to dav : but, as I do not lax my imagination for my lutiH, on mis noau i can at present tell you lullllllg. The Hon. Mr Thompson, member of Con gress irom jvontucKy, hae signified hie inten uon not to be a candidate for re-election. The National Intelligencer says of Mr Thompson : " Ho has just been here long enough to make hje associates in public life eintcrely regret ui iuhiuuuu retirement. U. S. Loan. Tlio balance of the U. S. six per cent loan has been taken by New York capitalists. Tlio amount not taken on tlio first of January, was, according to llio report of the Secretary of tlio Treasury, $5, 700,000. Somo two millions of this hud been quietly takon nt tlio Rank of America, wliero tho stock was deposited for sale. Tlio applications became so numerous on tho last days of last week, that it was evident the whole would speedily bo the surplus capital which is so abundant in Wall street. Under tlieso circiiiiijtances, some parties who liavo been calculating at a more convcncnicnt season to go largely into the loan, finding tnnl delay was getting to he im minently dangerous, despatched ono of their number to Washington to tako (he wholo. Thero continued to bo applicants yesterday, but whether they got any of the long repu diation, but now much desired scrip, is un certain. This movement is an encouraging one as to business generally ; for il shows that capitalists havo concluded to do somo thing with their money. This slock ought in all reason to bo somo per cent, nbovo par, nnd will bo beforo tlio year runs round. Such an abundance of capital ns now presses on the market, always did put business in ino-lion.--N. Y. Jour. Com. "RENEGARD DEMOCRATS."

NORTHERN DOUGHFACES. Wo liavo, from time to timo, presented our readers such proofs of tho truckling and servilo spirit of the Northern Locofocos as must convinco every ono that theso high spirited patriots aro roady at any time to sacrifice the rights and interests of llio Frco Slates in obedience to the dictation of Southern slave-drivers. Wo havo now an other and most infamous example of craven and cowardly sorvility, to which wo ask tho serious attention of every Vcrnionter who has tho spirit ofa freeman within him. Wo ulludo to a voto which was takon in the House of Representatives on Monday of last week, of which tho following account is given in the Albany Evening Journal. " It will ba remembered that on tho Friday previous, Mr. Wintbrop from tbo Committee on Com merce, made a report to the House in refer ence to numerous petitions presented by Northern shipping merchants, complaining of the wrong and oppression to which colored seamen in their employ wore subjected in many of the Southern ports. This wrong consists in the practice of arresting and im prisoning all free colored seamen found on board any vessels coming into the harbors of Charleston, Savannah, Mobile, &c, and keeping them in close confinement until the vessels to which they belonged were ready to depart, subject, if tho Captain refused to pay all chatges, to be sold into sJavcri. This ciying outrage against justice, against humanity, against liberty itself, was rebuked as it deserved to bo in Mr.Winthrop's report. Tho House by a large majority directed the printing of 5000 extra copies of this document, and there the question icsled un til Monday. On that day it motion to re- condsidcr tlio order to print was made and carried, and then, in order to smother tbo subject effectually, Mr. Wise moved to lay ihe question of printing ou the tabic. This motion, which in all probability disposes of tho matter for the session, was decided in tho affirmative by tho following vote : Yeas Messrs. I.. W.

A glance at tho above voto will satisfy the reader, if indeed he had any previous doubt of tho fact, that the Northern Locofocos, with one or two honorable exceptions, voted aye, whilo tho Norteern Whigs, without an exception, voted no. Ten honorable Representatives from this Stato, whoso names aro italicised in the above list, gavo their voices for suppressing Mr. Winthrop's report. Wo ask tho con stituents of theso recreant members to hold them ts a strict recount for this baso dcrc liction of duty.

CyTho Montpclior Patriot is amazed that the Whigs should object lo Gen. Kel logg for Governor, either bocause ho wears ruflles, or is President ofa Hank, or is a dan dy and aristocrat. We shunt vote against him on either of these grounds. For, though wo can't endttro his aristocracy, wo havo a stronger objection to him even than that. lint wo were a littlo surprised that a paity who havo said so many hard things against rufiles, nnd banks, nnd aristocracy, should avo set up the very impersonation of starch and buukrani as a candidate for Governor. A VAN BUR EN DEFAULTER. Tho Washington letter of the New-York Express, ,vhich will bo found in another col umn, gives the particulars of the defalcation of the late Collector of New York, Jcnsv Hovt. The sum which this Van Burcn of ficeholder pocketed during his brief official career and "under tho full operation of the Sub-Treasury law"amountsto TWO HUN DRED AND TWENTY-SIX THOU SAND DOLLARS ! For tho loss of this QiMmr.n or a .million of tho public money tlio Peoplo may thank Van Buni:. When tho defalcation of Collector Swartwout was first published tho Loco Foco papers sought to screen Mr. Van Burcn from any responsibility therefor by insisting that ho had never been favorable to Swarlwout's ap pointment. But they have no such plea in tho present instance. Jnssn Hovt was ap pointed by Picsident Van Burcn. For years previous to this appointment Iloyt's person al as well as political relations with Van Bu rcn wore of the most intimate nature. His habits, capacity and character were perfec tly well known to Mr. V. B. And nt tho very timo that the President bestowed upon him this lucrative offico ho knew perfectly woll that Hoy I was overwhelmed in debt and bankrupt in credit. When the appoinlmont was announced every body anticipated that Hoyt would "follow in the footsteps of his illustrious predecessor''' Swartwout, and the result has fully justified the general expecta tion. Albany Journal. Wo shall publish tho letter referred lo in tho above article, in our next paper. CC7Tlio Spirit of llio Age says Mr. Bar ber did not write the article, in the Demo cratic Ploughman, which makes such a fierce assault upon the Locofoco nominations for state officors. Be that as it may, Major Eastman will acknowledge that the Plough man is printed under Mr. Barber's eye, and that it is an influential Locofoco paper. The Ago says tho parly entertain wa strong affection for Mr. B. But, Major, they have a queer way of showing it, hav'nt they? ANIMAL MAGNETISM. It would seem, from the following extract from tho Evening Journal, that tho citizens of Albany have anihilated Dr. Buchanan, and overthrown his doctrine of Neurology through the potent instrumentality of a young man lrom Vermont." That our readers may see with what facility this extra ordinary feat was accomplished we present them the following bill of particulars : "NcfnOLOGV " This new nhilosonliv. which Ins shot as far ahead o( Science as "MilleriMii" is in ad vance of Religion, rccened an ugly, back-banded blow last eventmr, iu tho presence of its tcachir i;r. micnaiian nimseit: i no rumor runs, that Vermont youth who is attending lectures in our Mmh. cal College, desirous of acq'iiring that wisdom which inuiiiuis over -an tno ins mat tiesn is ncir lo," devo ted himself for several vec!.s to tho wondor-vvnrkincr cficcti of Animal Mnmictism, the Professor of which inuna mm a most ' impressible subject.

After trying some very shallow, txperiments in "NVuroliU'v" upon this "Mibjcct" last evening, he was calb d u;m to state what lin real experience had been and in reply, boldly pronounced the whole schemoa humbug! He said that for tho last thrie months, the 'Mngiu users" had been practising upon lums that finding bim "susceptible," they had put him through all thur experiments; and that thev bad pronounced bun a genuine subject. Ho added, "that in all this timo and through all their operations, he had not only never been aeen. but that bo had nevrr nvnpripnrn! thn slightest magnetic effect from their manipulations uuu luuinencs l TIlO audience, which vena nilmprnna nnil lilr!i'e intelligent, expressed their sense of obligation to tho Kcuueimui mr Having tuns successtuliy exposed a miserable nnd pernicious scheme of charlatanism, by a m-aii)- uuu I'lujiiiaiio vuio OI luaiuts. I Ins wo suppose settles the question. A "Vermont youth " has most grossly deceived Dr. Buchanan and a "highly intelligent an uienco" in Albany. Dr. B. is, therefore himself an impostor and animal Magnetism a ridiculous humbug. All will acknowledge tho argument is conclusive. Wo wonder why this " highly intelligent audience" did not pass a "hearty vote of thanks" to Doct. Buchanan, if they believed him to bo an im postor, as well as to tlio Vermont jug gler whom they knew to bo such. Wo cut tho following version of tho story from tho New York Evening Post of last Friday. It differs materially from tho pre ceding. Necrology ik Alban-y. It appears that a younf man attendino: the medical school at Albanv. namei! Cochran, has, for somo months past, pretended to llO n SllllinPl nf nnillttl limirnolia,.. .ml fiirrii.t nn n scries of impositions, in winch it is said ho had the aid and connivance of somo persons, from whoso ciuuuuig, n parunpaiion m such practices was not to tie cjpccieu. i nis young man, it is said, m a com munication which anncars in tha Albanv Amis, "m reared to be serioulv and re itrious v inclined." mi which account creatcr confidence was placed in him. IIo was made the subject of various experiments by the magnetic operators, and always pretended lo feci the effects they attempted to produce.

Tho young man's deceptions wcro guingon, anu no ouered imiiscu nsu suujeci lor e.v lierimeiit. beforo the class nllciuliiiL' llio Doctor's lie turcs on neuroloay. He vvas subjected, accordingly, lo certain neurological experiments, not by Dr Bu chanan, but by somo of tho peisons attending. Ho feigned to bo very impressible, to go to sleep, to bo weak or strong, and so forth, according to tno ra mus operations. After llio lecture was over, tho audienco remained to witness otlier experiments, when tha young man publicly declared that the ef fects he had previously pretended to feel wcro false, and that be had been practicing a systematic impo sition. The Albany Fvcninir Journal savs that tho company 'passed "a hearty and cmphaiic voto of maims to tno young man. this statement, now. ever, the samo paper afterwards retracted as untrue, and the writer in tho AlbanvArcus savs.lhat.allbouch iho young man's declaration was received with somo warmiu, vet mat contempt ana inaignauon preuoni iuated. Tte incident proves nothing either for or against J)r Buchanan. It otdj piovcs that ninin, "appiarmi to bo rclig.ouslt Inclined," may practic successful imposition. It is not pretended tint Dr. liuehntian had any, tbo ino-t distant understanding with Cochran. If bo had not, tho cheat throws tits dredit, not on him, but only on its author. A If tier lrom Albany, which wo nava Been sinca the abovo was in type, states that tho young man had been trained to these impositions nt thu Medical Collcgo, nnd that it was a fact that somo of thns who abetted him. did. on tho occasion alluded to. call out fur n voto nf thinks from tho pulpit, but ilioy were put down by llio hisses or the audience. UNITED STATES SENATOR. To morrow is tlio day fixed upon by the two branches of our Legislature for thn elec tion ofa Senator iu Congress. A caucus of tho Loco Foco members of tho Legislaturo was held on Saturday evening, at which Si las WmoiiT Jr. was unanimously nominat ed for re-elected to this post. But fifly-nint of llio 114 Loco Foco members took part in this selection. Tho remainder "kept aloof" whether from indifference or disaffection wo do not vctiluro to guess. At tho samo caucus Thomas FAnnt.vorow, tho present Treasurer, was re-nominated by 48 out of 57 members not a quorum voting. Tho election takes placo to-3ay.

When I sco a merchant going to Netr York, Boston, or other city, to buy his boots, shoes, hats, clothes, or other articles fur himself or his family to wear, when (hero aro makers of such articles in his own town, "thinks I to myself," thisjs ''short lighted, ruinous policy." How so 1 asks tho merchant. I answer: Every hat, boot, shoe, coat, &c, you buy abroad which you ought to havo bought at homo, lessons tbo ability of the artizan in your own town, to buy somo other article of you or somo of your neigh bors ; and you must sco upon the lest re flection, that should your example be follow ed by great numbers, (and example is very contagions.) that tho makers of tho various kinds of goods worn nnd used by all, must leave the placo, or if they stay, be able to buy but very littlo comparatively of tho goods of others, to what they would buy, had all been in the habit of using such good as wcro made in their own town or vicinity. Well, says tho merchant, tho hatter, tho boot-maker, tho tailor, &c, do not trado willi am. I am under no obligation to trado with them. If you are under no obligation, POLI CY should lead you, and all, to spend what monoy you have to spend, for goods in com mon use and wear, in your own town or vi cinity. Although you may not be ablo to sco directly that you are favorably effected by so doing, still every regular, pcrmanantly established business man is benefitted by it. Liko the pebble thrown into the still lako which makes a ripple at rinsT only whero it falls, but soon the influence is felt to its ut most bounds ; so it is in business. If wo all " support our own," we all shall be fa vorably effected by so doing. If the maker of boots, shoes, hats, coats, fcc, docs not deal with you, some of his hands may. If his hands do not, some of whom he buys his stock, tools, materials, ifcc. may. If they do not, others, who directly or indirectly de rive tho wholo or part of their support and money from him may. If not, perhaps some who aro induced to come from neighboring towns lo buy hals.coats or boots of tlieso ma kers, may become.thercby, your customers; and if not your customers, the customers of some one or moro who in their turn come to you to have their wants supplied. It should be the pride of every man in town that his hat, his coat, his boots, his eve-ry-thing that ho wears as far as can be, was made in his own town. To have it other wise to send abroad for things that your neighbors mako, is " short sighted, ruinous policy." It is suicidal policy ; it tends to lessen it MAY ur.sTnov your business. I havo sinned sometimes in this " short sighted " way, but mean to sin no more. A CIT1 Z EN. Indiana Senator.
