Mr Gilmer arose and addressed the Court with some warmth, declaring that be had submitted long enough to this impudence, and be conceived that tbe dignity of the Court, if not bis pe.sonai rights had l*rn invaded by this witness. Mr Moss asked leave to say a f-iw words. He stated that he had been an officer for eight years and Lad never offered an insult to any tribunal before which he appeared as a witness, as all the Judges and MagStrates iu tbe District of Co lumbia could testify He had come to this city a stranger, to aid In bringing au offender to jus tice. and b s character has been assailed bvcoun sel. and his feelings outraged.

Froot uru which we have gathered from re aper trble white persons, ,we incline to the opin ion that those persons who have been led, by re ceut circumstance*, to suspect the membership of the colored African Metfeodiat Church of any disposition to violate or even connive at any vio lation of the police regulations of our city, has done them some Injustice. Thin church la un der the guardianship of three of the most re spectable gentlemen in our city, and we are sat isfied. Irom onr knowledge of their character that they would not tolerate for one moment anything upon the part of the membership of this church that bore the slightest semblance of a departure from the rules (Corporation) prescribed for their government. Moreover, the official portion of the membership of tbis church is composed of some of the most worthy and upright among the colored portion of the people of (?eorgietown. Men who have thus far never bore th*??lightest taint of anything like an unruly disposition. We are also assured that the Individual by the name, of Fuller, (colored,) from the North, who Breached on one or two ociaelons, was, from the rut, regarded by the more respectable of the con gregation as an impostor; that they availed them selves of the very first opportunity to rid them selves of any more of bis Intrusions among them. We learn that an individual was employed to inter the body of an individual who died on Water street, yesterday; but instead of discharg ing the duty, for which he was paid, he look the corpse to the old Methodist burying ground and left it setting up against the fence Saturday night, yesterday, and last night, our city was decidedly more orderly and quiet than we have seen it for several months past. We sincerely hope that It Is an indication of a sus pension of tne disorders of which we have sev eral times of late been compelled to complain? of an intention upon the part of evil doers to inend their ways before the spirit of determina tion now at work among the orde--lovlng portion of the community shall exhibit itself in some practical demonstrations that might not be very agreeable to the peculiar notions entertained by them (tbe evil doeis.)
