The Simons Case In pursuance of the previously declared purpose of publishing whatever we can obtain likely to aid in rescuing the reputation of Dr. Simons from the stain upon it that might arise from the unexplained action of the late court martial in his case, we publish to-day a letter from another distinguished offioer, which sheds much additional lightupon tho facts involved. It is as follows : Fort Rilet. Feb. 23, lb56. Sib : I deem it a duty that I owe to the Army as well as to Dr Simons to say, that circumstances, elicited since the adjournment of the court-martial which recently assembled at this post for his trial, have come to light, which prove that his whole conduct, during the epidemic which prevailed in July and August of last year, has been that of a high-toned gentleman, and a faithful and attentive offi cer. I would state one fact which bears with .much weight on the oonduct of Dr. Simons. Tho reverend chaplain, Mr Clarkson, the chief witness for the prosecution, is known to have admitted, before creditable witnesses, that he was with Dr. Simons on the night of the 2d of August, and that it was his opinion that Dr. Simons was ill, and that such would have been his declaration before the court had a question to that effect been put to him. He further states, that though be does not know from his own knowledge or from Major Ogden himself, that it was his desire that Dr. Sipiona should not attend or prescribe for him, yet he was convinced that such was the fact from information derived from his friend, Mr. Sawyer. Thore are other circumstances to the advan tage of Dr Simons, which were not and could not be brought out in evidence, but which, I am satisfied, would place his conduct in an entirely new light, and vindicate his hitherto untarnished name. That Dr Simons wit placed in circumstances of peculiar difficulty and embarrassment, is evident to every indi vidual at this post. That he was surrounded by persons inimical to him, and who were ready to adopt the prejudices and opinions of others, does not admit of a doubt. Without a friend upon whom he could rely for advice? worn out and exhausted by forty-eight hours continuous labor?and conscious that his every act was scrutinized through a medium which could admit of no sympathy or fellowship. I can well imagine the conflicting elements which tortured his mind during that dreadful night of the 2d of August, as in the solitude of his own home he listened to the waiiings of his dying child, the earnest entreaty of his wife to take the advice of Mr. Clarkson and others, however doublful its sincerity, and remove them beyond contagion and to seek at the same time that repose it is universally ac knowled was so necessary to a prosecution of his own labors. Under these circumstances, it would reauire a better understanding of the workings of the human heart than such witnesses as were brought forward by the prosecution to divine or describe the motives of a person of the Doctor's exalted character. Before helefthis post on the morning of the 3d of August a physician had arrived That he remained from his post for several days was admitted ; but the arrival of an officer of the line with another physician, who had been specially sent for bis relief, relieved him from the ne cessity of abandoning his own wife and child, who were suffering with the disease I have forborne to dwell upon the high char acter Dr. Simons has hitherto sustained in th* Army It would ill become me to comment upon his professional skill and reputation Upon those points there can ba no better judge than yourself. My object is to present to you his case in a point of view which ap pears not to have been made manifest before the court; and if, in doing so, I shall have re moved from your mind a false impression, if such exists and thus restore to your confi dence, and to your corps, one who has been an ornament to it, my task will have been ac complished. Scan?alous Imputation?WhatDr. Lydia Sayer intimated in her lectures here, might occur to ladies complexions at a chemical lec ture it seems has come to pass in Prussia It was lately remarked that an exceedingly brilliant auditory, amongst which were many very elegantly dressed ladies, attended, at Berlin, a lecture on chemistry, delivered by one of the most celebrated chemists of the age. After witnessing a number of beautiful experiments and hearing of the marvels of science, a young lady, grew fatigued, and requested her husband to lead her from the hall ?' My love." said the gentleman, on reach ing the landing place outside. " wipe your cheek, there's a large blue spot upon it." The lady, much surprised, turned to look at her reflection in the mirrored window of a shop they were passing, and was almost pet rified to observe that the rouge on her cheeks had become blue, in oonsequence of the chem ical decomposition occasioned by the gas the professor had used in making his experiment She quickly wiped her face, and stifled her vexation in the thought that she should find herself amply revenged upon the other ladies in the hall. In reality, the lecture closing at this moment the audience began to disperse, and the gentleman and his wife almost burst with laugher at the cheeks of yellow, blue, black, vioiet and other colors, which now made their appearance in the street. Some of tue ladies, who had manufactured for themselves ivory complexions, rosy cheeks, coral lips and ebony eye-brows, were so transformed that they would have excited the envy of a pea cock. It is whispered that a lecture from the professor would produce similar effects in oth er cities besides Berlin. More about Louis Napoleon while in this Country.?M L. Tinelli, a French po litical exile, well known for his republican opinions, gives a quietus to the tales to the discredit of Louis Napoleon by the following authoritative declaration : 14 From the day of his arrival until that of his departuro in the packet Independence, June 28, 1837, Louis Napoleon had nis apart ments in the Washington Hotel, Broad way. on the site n>w occupied by Stewart's mag nificent store. There he received, and ad mitted sometimes to his table?besides the Count Arresse who remained one of his most intimate confidants?a very limited number of friends; among them were Mr M Uenfa lonieri, Foresti, Maroncelli, Ua:kett. Poug net, Dacoste, the RjV Mr. Steward, aLd a few others He led a very retired and re tired and remarkably regular life, acceptiLg none of the invitations with which he was un ceasingly besieged. He made no exception, but for the soirees of Mme Maturin Livings ton, whose family he particularly esteemed, and those of Mme. Pannon, who once a week gathered the elite of the French society under her roof. " Far from leading the life which has been attributed to him, the Prince on the contraiy constantly busied himself with labors and 6y rious projects A short time before his de parture, he asked me to draw up the plan of a great agricultural establishment, for he in tended to purchase land, and instal a small French colony. This design remained unful filled only on account of his sudden depar ture, which was caused by the unfavorable advices he had received concerning his mo ther's health.

Bible Lore in Missouri. A correspondent of the St Louis Republi can, writing from Jefferson City, gives an amusing description of a trial which recently came off at that place, in which all the c un ?el engaged rank high at the Missouri bar. Although lawyers were never considered re markable for their erudition in the Scriptures, urges the editor of the Republican, yet such unpardonable neglect of the holy book, as the counsel in this case exhibited, calls for prompt action upon the part of the American Bible Society, or greater Sunday school facilities, liere is the letter: A few days since, I was serving as a juror in a case of slander. Three of our most prom inent lawyers were engaged?one for the plain tiff. the others for defendant. Tbe counsel attempted to impeach the veracity of one of the witnesses?au old man named Mayhew. They failed entirely, aud when the counsel for the plaintiff came to sum up the evidence, said : " Gentlemen of tbe jury, the oouneel on the opposite side have endeavored to im peach the veracity and destroy the character of the witnesses, and particularly of my old friend Mayhew. I must confess, gentlemen, I trembled for my old friend, when the senior counsel for defendant, with his stern counte nance, demanded of the old man, whether he had not told a different story to his neigh bors, and introduced Mr. Harris to prove it. But, gentlemen, he failed ; and my old friend Mayhew came out unscathed. Yes, gentle men, like Daniel of old, out of the lion s den, without a hair of his head having been singed." This excited the risibles of ..hose familiar with the authority quoted ; but some very t road grins were seen when the senior coun sel for defendant rose, and remarked to his hearers, "That his friend, the counsel for plaintiff, had not quoted correctly the passage from the Higher Law ; that he had read and heard much of Daniel, but that was the first time he had ever heard of his being in a lion's den " All was silence, however, compared with the roar when the junior counsel made his reply. In alluding to the remarks of plain tiff's counsel, he said : '? My worthy friend on the othor side is not quite as familiar with the volume of the higher law as he ia with those of Chitty and Blackstone, or he would not have attempted to release his friond Mayhew from the lion's den without having a hair of his head singed. Unlike my senior I hav* heard of being in the lion's den; but, until to-day, I never heard that his roaring majes ty made use of fire. My worthy friend has, I suppose, mixed up the esca}*e of Daniel from the lion's den with the passage of Nebuchad ncxiar through the fiery furnace, who had not a hair singed !" A Female hi a Parent asd Choosisg to Live with the Shaeers?It will be recollected in the early part of the winter a young female, residing with the Shaker family at Lebanon, very mysteriously disappeared, and fears were then entertained that she had met with some violence. She was the daughter of David Lyall, of this city, who, on the 4th of February, 1637, legthy bouiid out three of his children to the Ltba non family Previous to the disappearance of Mary, two of the children, who were bound out at the eauie time with her, had voluntari ly left, and no effort was made on the part of the Shakers to retain them Immediately upon the disappearance of Mary, tbe Shakers set about making a diligent search for her, and, after a 1 >ng time, ascertained that ?he had been taken away by her father against her consent, and under circumstances that led the Shakers to believe that she had desired to remain with them, and to have them bring her back. Upon ascertaining this fact, one of the fam ily. in behalf of the society, appeared before Judge Robinson, and obtained a writ of ka/ra* corpus, demanding the father to bring hie daughter before the Judge The process wa? placed in the hands of police officer 11.tie. who served it, and caused the parties to aj J ear this morning, as commanded, before uJge Robinson. Mr Lyall, accomj anted by a legal friend and his daughter, with her sis t r, two Shakers, their Counsel, two members of the press, and a few members of the bar, were witnesses to an interesting scene which transpired in Judge Robinson s office. Alter an acknowledgment cfc tbe scrvice of the summons by Mr. Lyall, the Judge informed Mary that she was at liberty to go either with her father or the Shakers, when she promptly replied, "1 will go with the Shakers. She is rather an interesting looking girl, and wo were not surprised that her father bec-m* en raged at her decision. She left the office ac companied by tbe Shakers, with the promiso to give to her sister, before she left the city, all the clothing she then had on ?Altnny Journal, April 2. |VWilliam ftilmore Simms has been lec turing in Savannah on the "Ante-Colonial History of the South."
