1'OCA L INTELLIMEMCB. Cimimi Cor*T ?Tr>nt of Ogle, far tfu murder of John Webb.?The Court was "'?g^g^d during a!i of yesterday in trying to cra psnnel a jury in this case, and at the heur of ad journment had obiaiued but nine. To-day, a jury was empanelled as follows;?. John l*aurie, James W Coomb*, Richard Ab bott. George W Uttermuhle. Henderson Fowler, George Bum*. William H Ban in. Rob't Cohen! Benjamin F Mll*te*d, Henry A. Clarke, Lewi* V\ right. and J a mes Crandell Mr Fowler, nne of the jurors, here Mated to the court that the condition of his health would not admit of his being confined to the court in that capacity; and he begged to be excused from serving The Court replied that It could not interfere in the matter, but if the unanimous consent of the counsel could be obtained to his plea, he could be excused on that ground, but on no other. The seveial counsel consented, and Mr Fowler was dismissed. and i?ir. Richard Butt was taken In his place. The jury were here called, and the Clerk pro ceeded to read the indictment, which had been found against the prisoner. The witoeMtes for the prosecution were then call* d and sworn Mr Maury, for the United State*. proceeded to state the case to the jury, saving that it was one of no oidinai y impo.tance, and one that shocked the senses of the entire community He alluded to the sense of insecurity for life and Its privileg es that had been created on the public mind in consequence of the perpetration of this most atro cious murder The character of the alleged crime was dwelt upon at length ; and the extreme youth of the victim enlarged upon, as well as his incapacity, from bis tei.der age, to give provoca tion for so dreadful and diabolical an execution of vengeance Mr Maury then proceeded to state the law de fining the crime of murdei, and stated in brief what was expected to be proved on the part of the prosecution He alluded to the evil day" upon which the community Lad fallen, and the necessary impres sion on the public mind, that the strong arui of the law should be put in severe requisition to May ai once this recklessness of the depraved and lawless, and tijerel>y restore confidence and peice again in the community now outraged to an ex treme amounting almost tosocial disorganization. Mr Maury cloMd, and was follow, d on the part of the defence by Mr Ratclit'e, who con t;.andated the jury that tbe difficulty experienced ii the outset of this case, In finding a jury, had at length been overcome, and that they were now prepared to enter upon the trial. He compli mented the jury on their good sense and judg ment. and proceeded to enter into an explanation of the position which the defence occupied in the trial now pending He charged the jury to avoid, in this Investi Ktion. all thoughts which were calculated to spire sympathy or invoke prejudice, and to en ter upon the trial with calmne** and deliberation worthy ol a case of so much magnitude, and in volving so many deep interests. No one could deplore the commission ol this crime more deep ly than the unhappy and unfortunate prisoner when in his lucid moments He was In that con dition that abundantly proved this hypothesis, as Would be shown in evidence; no man unless a devil incarnate could do so diabolical an act. un less laboring under mental aberration. He alluded totbe lac' that the prisoner, after the commission of the act which had placed him 2u the cha a<-ter of a murderer most villainous, had return* d to his bouse and calmly sat down to a repast of oysters ; he had been in a state of intoxication since the month uf December, and was oil that day intoxicated, and his mind in i completely moibid state. Mr. R. stated that the family of the prisoner I Las il. Wr;e more or less insane; his mother aud sis ! .A *f.,er ?uw heiug totally mad, ar.d argued thai in sanity wa> hereditary with the piisoner. Wr R- closed, and after the jury had taken a i .--**? short recess, the examination was gone into by I calling, for the United States, John Stanton, who p Klv'ng hi? evidence when this report closed..

If on any day permission should be granted for eating flesh, both flesh and fish are not to be used at the name time, even by way of seasoning. j A small refreshment, commonly called col lation, Is allowed in the evening; no general role as to the quantity of food permitted at this time is or can be made. But the practice of the most regular Chrlstim is, never to let It exceed the fourth part of an ordinary meal. A. The qnality of food allowed at a collation is In this Diocese; bread, butter, cheese, all kinds of fruits, naiads, vegetables and fish. Milk and eggs are prohibited 7. General n.vage has made It lawful to drink In the morning some warm liquid: aa tea, cof fee, or thin chocolate, made with water. 6.

It was sus pected that some mischievous person was under taking to play ghost, and circumstances seemed to confirm the supposition. A slave boy. on lieing questioned by Bail ill' King, accusea a colored ii rear her, named Levi Collins, with being at the bottom of It Collins was accordingly arie<ted and taken before Justice Donn, who, after g ft 11 examination, was *ati>tled that the accused was not guilty, and the case was dismissed. So the mysterious noises remain unexplained, and the Northern Liberties ghost has not been laid. Ma Kditoe : When the citizens deposited their ballots for or against the Revised Code on Monday last, many tickets were polled with the words "No Charter," written on the backs. True, the surrender of the City Charter up to Congress was not the question at issue, but would it not be nn item of interest and useful for future reference, to furnish the public with the number of votes thus cast ? Curious. A Fine Party.?The entertainment of the Washington Quadrille Association, at Philhar monic Hall on the night before last, was a very interesting and agreeable party. attended by the strength of the corps and their friends, male and feniaie We have rarely seen a more respectable set of young meu gathered together on such an occasion, or more beautiful and tasteful young ladies.

I*;i867. $ I hare an opportunity of needing you a line,but only time to say a few words, u 1 bare been en gaged till the last moment in ray public corre spondence We are still encamped at this piace, and will continue until we move In the Spring. The army has abundance of food and clothing, and is well sheltered from cold In Sibley's tents. With your knowledge of camp life yt u would pronounce our situation one of great comfort. These Sib ley tents are tali, conical tents, twelve fret high, and tweaty feet la diameter, open at the top, with a vane to prevent its smoking, which it does not quite do. With a stove or lire built in the middle.it is a great improvement in the com fort of the soldier, out not as good as a wall tent, with a stove, for an officer. 1 said we have abundance, but Inasmuch as no one. from the Governor and civil odlcera to the private soldier, can obtain more than oae ration, we bave nothing to give in tbe way of boapltallty, for if 1 invite my neighbor to dine, he would be no better oil'than if he had staid at home, while I should be damaged by bis eating my ration The regular diner out would fare baaly here. What genius and tact he must be endowed with if he could procure an invitation ' The day before tbe reduction took place, we gave a dinner to tbe Governor, Chief J oat ire, Arc , on our surplus In the larder. Since tbe it I do not think we could feed an extra rat at our mess, such la our health and so nicely is the quantity allowed adjusted to tbe measure of our wants. ?Ve, of course. And it irksome here, but time will soon roll round, and we shall tlnd ourselves again in tbe midst of those we love and admire. Until then we must be patient. We fear oar ft lends will suffer from groundless apprehensions on our account. We have no reason to complain of any thing but absence from our families Some think the Mormons, when it necessary to make the Issue with them, will submit to the government. I do not agree with tliern. I think their fanaticism and villainy will lead tliein to try one encounter at least; and 1 think our Oov eminent ou^bt to desiie It, as affording a simple solution of a difficult political question. Jf they resist, a final settlement would tie on the basis of a conquest We could then dictate to them the term# of adjustment. Brigham Young wrote to me a few days since, sending, as a present, some rt(Jli pounds of salt, or if preferred, we might buy It for the troops. Knowing they would entertain a fiendish deligbt in the knowledge that we would starve or freexe, neither of which we intend to do, although we have no salt, I sent it back to him with this mes sage: '* Brigham Young and his associates are in rebellion against tbe government, that until they return to their allegiance and obey the laws.] will accept ne favor or courtesy from them, nor hold any correspondence with them ; that when 1 advance, the people who remain at their homes or engage only in their private business, will l>e undisturbed. If 1 find them arrayed in arms I will attack them wherever | meet them ; that if they entertained the deiusive hope that the army wonld retire from the Territory, they had better banish it; that the army will never take one step back." A. S. JoMMTOX. The Overthrow of Cemenfart. Pull details of the recent Mexican revolutlpn show that the overthrow of the late government ha* been complete. On the 11th of January, Comonfort, closely besieged in the capital, Issued a final appeal to the nation to come to hi* sup port, and from that time until tbe 21st, with oc casional intervals for the purpose of negotiation, the belligerent forces were almost constantly er g*K*d. On the morning of the 21st the city was at the mercy of the revolutionists. Comonfort had abandoned tbe Plan, and taken refuge in flight, accompanied by a few adherents. G?n Zuloaga immediately nominated a House of Representa tives to proceed to the election of a President ad interim, and the choice felt unanimously upon him. the chief of the " Reformed Plan of'Tacu baya." Zuloaga took the oath before the House, and eotered upon his duties on 22d January. Comonfort dictated his last dispatch from the roadside inn of San Antonio, on his way to Vera Crux, placing at tbe disposal of the Governor of that State the troops who had remained faithful to the Qovernpient. He also promised, on bis arrival at Jalapa, to issue a manifesto detailing the recent event* in the political history of the country, and explaining bis own motives and conduct. The manifesto has not yet appeared. The ex-dictator will probably find leisure to write It in this country. A letter from Mexico dated from the 25th says : 44 A new ministry has been formed, composed of Louis Cuevas, for Foreign Relations ; D Hl laro Heiguero, for Justice; D John Hierro Mai donado, for Fomento; and per interim for Fi nances, and Parro for W ar One of the agents of Santa Ana. Geneial Cortes, was arrested at the Point San Francisro, and is now rigorously im prisoned iu tbe barracks uf the Defenders of Or der."' Tbe return of Santa Ana is, nevertheless, freely debated in political circles, and his resumption of office, after the fourth or fifth exile, would Burp.ise no o?>e versed in the mutations of Mexi can politics. That his downfall would come just ns surely might i>e piedicted with tolerable certainty. At present, such is the confusion ai,d agitation among the several States of tbe confed eracy, and such tbe ambition of a number of prominent men to leap into Coni<>nfort's vacant seat, that a condition of things not very far re moved from anarchy may be said to exist Cy The public meeting that Jul not tale place in Xew York, called to npoo?e the adinis;iou of Kansay into the Union, was very large. A Cool Reception?In tbe lower house of the Tennessee legislature, a resolution of Mr. Keudrick. Know Nothing, tendering tbe use of tbe ball to General William Walker, and calling upon bim for a public address upon Nicaraguan affairs, was. on motion of Mr. Bale, Democrat, tabWd by a vote of 31 to 2*1. The Catholic Church o.i Dauaaxftni?? ? Bishop Bayley, the Catholic Bishop of New Jer sey, has Issued a manifesto, bringing the ma chinery of the church to beai a^aumt the vice of drunkenness. Ilis letter on ttie subject has been read In ail ihe churches, In which he calls atten tion to two classes?the drunkards themselves, and tbe dealers in liquor. Leaving to the pastors the choice of tbe particular means to be used, be suggests that each should keep a list of thedrunk ards and iiquo.-dealers in his church. He says: 4,I am determined to make use of the most se vere measures against all who are addicted to this scandalous vice; and if they contiuue iu the prac tice it, they must do it as outcasts from the Cath olic Church, who bave no right to the name of Catholic while they live, nor to Christian burial when they die." H7* On Wednesday morning a negro woman, ?lave of Mr. Law ence Smith, of this city, t?a*e bulb to an anomaly, which has set tho wits of the dootors agog to comprehend ' The child was perfect in its feet, legs, arms a id the lower half of its body Hut from the in ddle of the breast to the top of the head nature had stamped the In dnbltable impress of afrcg.

Mr. Walters, pastor, peremp torily ordered " those persons who did uot wt*h to comply with his request (to kneel during prayer,) to leave." Mr. Henry Miller, of that city, efused to do eituer, whereupon Mr. Wal ters Instituted a suit against Mr. Miller, before a magistiat* A clergyman of the same church appeared as a witness, testifying that It was not compulsory with every one to kneel but simply customary, when judgment was given In favor of defeudant.
