Carrie Woodman, who was attempting to regain her liberty from a private lunatio asylum, by the aki of a babe a# corpus, procured by Gardner Furniss. was again before the Supreme Court of New York on Thursday. Mrs W was placed in the institution by her husband. who lives in New Orleans, because of ber being under the influence of Furniss to an extraordinary degree; and the affidavit of Mm. W. confirms this fact, by th? development of perhaps the most singular state of affairs ever made public in a court of law. The following are aotne extracts from the affidavit: I was married to Oliver 0. Woodman about ten years since. In July. lk>4, my husband took me to Kurope on account of my health. I had been suflering a long time from a disease of the nervous system. On the 2d of November he left me in Paris, under charge of a family of a mutual friend, that I might have the benefit of the most skilful medical advisers. For the first two months I was well enough to go out. Duriug this time I formed the acquaintance of Mr. Gardner Furnis*. whose mother and elder brother I had known iu America. From early in January bo July, when my husbarti returned to Paris. 1 was confined to my rooms a large part of the time by severe illness. My attend ing physicians were Dr. L'Fau, Sir J. Oliver, Dr. Dubois, and others. During April and May my life was despaired of, ana mv frien ls so wrote to Mr. Woodman. I have ofton since wished I could have died at that time. Daring my illness Mr. Furniss w*< extreme ly kind and attentive to me, and gained my perfect confidence. IIis influence over me was like a strange infatuation. I loaned hiin money freely when I h?d it. some of which he paid bsck. I have no knowledge of the amount. But about the time I returned to America, he informed me that he owed me about sixteen hundred dollars, and told me to say nothing: about it, that he expected to be rich, and would riy me back double the amount. At that time thought nothing ol it. end did not earo what ho had bad About November. Itwj. I left New York for the South, and went for a time to the house of my fathcr.in Mississippi While there I cor responded with said Gardner Furniss at his urgent request. By means of my letters and otherwise, ne had it thon in his power to ruin my reputation, and, as he supposed, cause me to bo discarded by my husband. In January. l^MJ. after I had returned to New Orleans and settled there for the winter, said Furnis* ar rived in New Orleans. The next day afier his arrival he a?ked m? for some morjev. I had then only which I gave him lie was not satisfied with that. The next day I obtained and gave him $150 more. He urged me to get a divorce from my husband and then marry him. Stated that he bad bad a lawyer to ex amine the laws of Louisiana, and that if I -Could obtaiu a divorce I would be entitled to ?one-half of my husband's estate in Louisiana, aad thus I could obtain by that means from fifty to seventy-five thousand dollars ; that if I did not create some difficulty and obtain a di vorce. he would expose my letters to my hus band. and that there were expressions in them that would induce iuj husband to apply for a divorce. wLich would disgrace me. He after wards called on me repeatedly for more money, and upon my refusing to give it him he threat ened to show Mr. Woodman the letters which 1 had written him. and also a portrait of me which he had He told me the letters which I had written him wouM cause Mr. Woodman te discard me. and that he. Mr Furniss. would disgrace and ruin me, unless I let him have all the mjney I could get I had, duriug that period, an allowance, from my husband, of $100 per month, all of wbieh I gave Mr. Furniss; with that b? got along until the Utter part of April. About the 2oth of April he called on me for money to pay his board bill, which, he said, was about $2S0. I had no money, and told him so; upon which be not only threat ened me. but actually beat me with violence? br^ke open my wardrobe, and took away my jewelry and some valuable laces, Sotueof which ne dropped iu the entry as he was carrying them away, and again threatened to disgrace me and to send my letters to Mr. Woodman. At one time, while in New York, he took from me a valuable diamond erott, worth $o00 or $6oo and u>lu me he had lost it. He put an advertisement in the Herald for it; this he afterwards returned. During the samj autumn. 135rt. at the New York Hotel. I had $->3. which I had laid apart to pay a bill of Mrs. Dieden. dressmaker, for $o2 This money was in a trunk which waa standing open No one was iu the room but Mr. Furniss and myself. When my girl Jane came in directly, I told ber to take the money and go and pay Mrs Dieden s bill. She looked for the money but it was g >no. and could not be found. I- urnisa afterwards acknowleged to in* that be took of it. and laughed. About the same time Mr. Woodman gave me the money to pay for same small articles of furniture which I had oidered. Furniss took away most of this money?all but ?and I was obliged to make some exeuse for not tak ing the articles to the people from whom I had bought them. Last wiuter aaid Furniss went to New Or leans again. A few days after his arrival ho came to me and asked me to givo him $100. which I did. and afterwards I gave him all my allowance, say $100 u uionth. Duriug that winter he persecuted me constantly with threats and exactions. When I was going to a ball in the evening, he would c >ros into the room and take my jewelry and put it into h.s pocket, and refused to let me have it to wear unless I gave him money, telling me that if I went without it Mr. Wo-*dmau would insist upon knowing ^rfcere it was gone?so I would raise every ef fort to raise money for him?and sell every iking in my power?my dresses, rich embroide r ???one pieee ol embroidery wbioh I Md to Mtsa c?*t over two hundred dollars; most of the articles I sold to ladies of my acquaint ance . made excuses about my health?about gjiug back to Paris. Ac. I sold moat of my very handsome handkerchiefs; some of them e ?sting o* apiece?my velvet mantilla? ruy lace flounces?a great deal of expensive lace, some two yards wide, some three yards ? two very pretty lace borne is which I brought f'om Paris. In short. I could not keep jew elry or any thing valuable in my room I gave my jewelry box to Mr. Woodman, and re quested him to place the same in bank, pre tending to him that I was afraid it might be stolen, but in faot, to keep it from Mr. Furuisa, to wbom I told that Mr Woodman had taken my jewelry from me. AM the most valuable jewelry that I have left, still remains iu bauk at New Orleans Ou SitarUy, lath of August, I arrived in New York fr<>m Boston by the Fall Kiverbnat, w;th my nephew, a no or Mrs Hazard a; the boat having run iuto a propeller, we arrived very late I waa greatly fatigued, nervoua and exc>tcd Mr. Pike give me a room i>iiy and I t->ok breakfast in the room ; Mr. Furow-called, but soon left. I sent my nephew down to Mr Merrick, to see if he had any news <?f Mr Woodman, as I had not heard from him for aorne tim?. aud I did not know that be bad arrived in New York I had been expecting him to come North for several weeks, and was very desirous to know where he we*. It after Wards appeared that Mr. Woodman had ar >***d at New York on Thursday evening pre vious. and sent my brother to Bostou for mo. t>ul be iniased me Mr. Woodman baring dis covered, jaat bef ire leaving New Orleans, some thing of my affsir with Mr. Furniss, had re trained from writing to mo. After 0'ly had gone aome one knocked at the door I had partly undressed ?thought it waa OUy eorne back ; found it waa Mr Furniss ; he pushed in; gAjj bow he wanted to have an un derat?o4injj Wi;h j*iJ that I must give him $2.o00 ; that li 1 would do eo, and woald toatradict whatever Mr Haiurd might say, "?5t WOuKI leTaverae ?'<>ne. and never trouble h j ? rawe- I toW him I could not; that I hud bo mean* of getting it.

Then he pulled off bis clothes and I screamed, and just then some one knocked at the door. I went to the door, end found it was Mr Woodman, who bad come up During the above interview Furniss urzed me to get the money by making out false bills, and getting the money from Mr. Woodman, or b> taking jewelry. Also, he insisted that he knew my father had given me $2.i00 to buy diamonds or silver, and he was determined to have it. Yi hen be found he could not jret the money he used violence as I have stated, lie ?ajd, '? 1 our husband and you brother are com ing here; there II be a fuss; and I mean to JUi? fir8?-and putyou in the gutter, where I shall be.

Paris Gossir.?A curious discovery has been made, while repairing the house formerly oc cupied by the Jacobin Club during the great re volution. and now known as the Hotel dc Lon dres, in the Hue St. Hyacinthe, St. Honore. fheelub which guided the destinies of the re volution during some few years had often boasted ofailowing the ambition of Robespierre and other leaders to progress so far, and no farther; and the member.* by vote had passed* law which entitled the majority to exclude from any particular MMMrr. any particular member whose interests might lead him to sway the opinion^ of the club. Ko!>espicrre, whose am bition bad rendered hiui an object of suspicion, had often been voted out by the assembly; and it baa been matter of surprise to the historians of the time, that he eouldso long have maintained his intlueuce iu spite of the violence of the op pjsition thus permitted. The ?*ocret is now re vealed :?A small room,?a hiding place in the thickness of the wall, has just been discovered, opening by a trap door iuto the very hall where the deliberations were being carried on, and whence he could listen to the measures to be tikeu again-t lain, ami, thus forearmed, havo rx.wer to defeat them. It ja evident that this hiding-{dace must often have been occupied by Robespierre; and when tlrat entered by the workmen, the traces ol his presence were still visible in the journal which lay upon the table and the writing paper, from which had torn a small porliou. as if for the purpuee of making a memorandum. The only book which1 was found in (tie place was a volume of Florian. open at the second chapter of Claudine. It was 0>vjred with suuff, which had evidently been an a ken from the reader's shirt trill, and bore tes timony to the truth of history which roeords the simplicity of the literary tastes of Robespierre. His prweenoe seemed Mill to hang about that ?mall spice as though he had quitted it bat the moment beforehand, singular, enough, the marks of hi? feet, ae though be had reeantly trodden tluvugfc the mud, were still visible of the tiles wiUi whieh the ieortng ia eaapoaed.

In the experience ol even two years, I have found great difficulty 111 obtaining Spectacles that were ex - aotly adapted to the weakness of in> sight. This in convenience Mr. Tobias seems to have removed for the present by the substitution for me of better and more suitable Glasses. They are clear, chrrstal-like and comfortable to my eyes. I would commend him to those who from age or other infirmity reuuire ar tificial aid in this way. J. J. SIMKlNS, M. D. WiLMiwc.TO*, N. C., June 16. 1?5?.
