1 I.OCAL NEWS. Hpbbcmbs or thk Hon Jeff. Davis and thb H?i> liowicLt Cobb, on Monday Evbning.? Wr publish below the speeches of the Hon Jeff Davis, of Miss., and the Hon. Howell Cobb, of tia .delivered on the occasion of the Breckinridge * .tnd Lane ratification demonstration on last Monday evening, which, from a desire to give them in full, were necessarily crowded oat of our report of the procwdlngs yesterday: ?r*ECH OF THB HON JEFFIKSON DAVIS. Happy am I to greet this vast multitude, assembled 1 n the cause of oar common country. 1 deeply regret that my physical inability to address you ?* my brart prompts, requires me to be exceedingly brief. Here for many years it has been mv fortune to spend a portion of my time For four \ears I was connected with you continually: learned to know your moral attributes; learned toknowvour peculiar characteristics. I knew how to labor tor your natnral Interests 1 trust, therefore. I may be allowed to speak to vou of the people of Washington. 5ome entertain the foolish i rtofl that hpr?n?o win 41 * jv;m ua?c Hu fow, mprfiore you have no r5gb* Interfere in the national politics of the day But vou have the deepest interest; that htgh intelligence which sends forth its promptings to every portion of the country Why then should not you assemble ? W hy should you not apeak to your fellow-citizens of every portion t>f the country ? Who else so deeply interested in th? affairs of the Federal Government? Who else an dependent upon just administration of federal affairs ? Who else so deeply interested in having the government administered with full and equal vistice to all; and that it should be preserved in those vital energies which give protection whenever legislation exists? But we Lave beard it said that the democratic party is dead. Dead ! Hear 1 Jsvniy band upon its heart, and in its quick pol?ations feel that vitality that sends it to victory No, it is not dead Born of the oppression of the mother country, when democracy arose to assert t-qual rights; baptised in the blood of the Revolution. rrx-krd in the cradle of civil and religious r ? ? - loerxy since l-w, it nas lived. and lives to-day. with all its vital energies to fulfil the duties of this government, and meet the requirements of ! "*>. [Applause ] The sneaker then proceeded briefly to contrast all the otner parties in the country with the democratic. First. h? said, came that spurious and decayed off-shoot of democracy, which, claiming that this Federal Government lias no power, leaves the people our next greatest evil, aespotism; and denies protection to our Constitutional rights Next comes the party that proclaims the Union and the Constitution, but that dares not tell what the Constitution is?a mere catchword, sounding, but meaning nothing. Then, my friends, there is the "rail-splitter, ' aptly selected for the pu:pose, first proclaiming there was au "irrepressible conflict" between the sections; and having proved himself able to rend the yoke, who so fit as hfe. with such a theory as that, to be selected for the accursed performance of rending the Union' Then, my friends, comes the true de ?pocracy, proclaiming the Constitution and the I'nlon, and what that Constitution is; writing your opinion* on your banner, throwing it to the winds, and inviting all who believe to come and worship at the altar of truth. [Applause ] This banner proclaims the futility of Abe. Lincoln's effort* to rend the l"nion. Though he did rend the yoke, he will tind the Constitution and the I'uion worse than any black yum in the forest. Our cause is onward. Our car is the Constitution; our fire* are up; let all who would ride into the haven of a peaceful conntry come oil board, and those who will not, 1 warn that the cowcatcher '.sdown?let (tragylers beware! [Cheer* ] We have before us In this canvass the highest duty which can prompt the devoted patriot. ??ur country is in danger Our Constitution is assailed by those who would cscape from declaring their opinions? by those who seek to torture its meaning, and by those who would train} le upon Its obligations. What is our I'nion? A bond of fraternitv. by the mutual ai7r?*>m?nt nt sort-reign Statesit is to be preserved by good faith?by strictly adhering to the obligations whi< h exist between its friendly and confederate Mates Otherwise we saould transmit to our children the very evil under which our fathers groaned?a government hostile to the rights of the people, not resting upon their consent, trampling upon taeir privileges, and calling for their resisC nnce. But I place my trust in democracy?in that democracy which tias borne this country on from Its commencement, which has Illustrated all its bright passage* of history, which has contributed to it all which is grand and manly, ail which has elevated and contributed to its progress?the democracy of Washington, of Jefferson, of Jackson, and of Buchanan [great applause] shall be the democracy of the next four years. (Renewed applause.] uurlng th?? entire period of my intercourse with the people of Washington, I do not recollect of ever baring ncen such a multitude of citizens as those assembUd here this evening. But more than that?daring the tiine 1 have been speaking, is my eye runs over the vast throng before me, I ran say never have i seen so quiet, so orderly, no patriot'c a concourse of people (judging front the expression of their countenances) as is assembled here to-night. [Applause] The national democracy present a ticket to the country which may well inspire the most lofty pi rot ism The nam.? of Breckinridge comes down by lineal descent from one who asserted the great principle* of 179?". as reatlirmed at Baltimore; and as for Lane. he is too modest to ijoast ?>r the deeds or his younger davs No doubt he bu split a hundred rail* to Lincoln's on''! [I*aiighter and cbeers.l Let us then be encouragcd to go into tlie conftir.t. determined to succeed, and transmit to our children the rirb inheritance wp hnve received from our fathers unimpaind [Applause ] The vast assemblage having left the City Hall, and called at the Executive .Mansion to pay their respects to the President, alter an address from His Kxcellt-ncy, (publisLed by us yesterday.) the Hon llowell Cobb being present at the Mansion, and being loudly called for. appeared on the bulcouy and said: SPKECH or THE HON HOWSH COBB Fellow-citiieiiS : It Is entirely too late to make a speech, although 1 respond to your call with a f?W U'Ar^a Km u-'?w "f 1 ??-?

I CsiMiNAX Cou*t ?Yesterday, tbe court met at the usual hour, and after soinc delay proceeded ! with the trial of Wm Cullom, late Clerk of the House of Representatives. Mr. Ould, for the i United States, opened tbe case to tbe jury; stated th? charge to be embezzlement Tbe first count charges an embezzlement of #7,000; the s-cond with 932.H50, and the third charges false receipts Mr. O. then proceeded to read the law of Congress relating to the charges pending In 1656 and '7, Mr. Cullom was Clerk of the House of Representatives under the laws of the I'nited States, and empowered to discharge such duties as came under bis ojfice L'udtr a resolution pissed by tbe House of Representatives, the Clerk was authorized to purchase certain books for the new members, similar to those purchased for the members of the preceding Congress Gales & Beaton were the publishers of three of the works ordered to be purchased under this resolution It was natural that they, as the publishers, should supply them. The evidence would show that the defendant called on these gentlemen and had conversation with them in respect to the purchase nf Ihm hn?k> U-JU * * ??x . in uiu nut tiiuw 10 wuai extent he should order books from tkem, but informed tbein that Mr Huch Tyler would call upon them in relation to it In a few di\s Mr. T\ler called on them, and told them that he would buy 90 seta of these books if they would give him ?13,(NO They thought it a piece of great extortion, and finally concluded not to accept the offer. After that Tyler called again, and offered to purchase sets of the books If Mr. 5eaton would give hi in ?7,U0U. Mr. 9 was then in debt to parties who were clamorous; the books were already pub1 shed, and under that pressure he concluded to accept the proposition On thp iSth of March, lS5?,a check was drawn by Mr. C. on theTreasury for ?3*J 350, and with it a receipt from Gales & Seaton fur that amount On the 2d day of April the draft was presented to the bank of Suter, Lea Sl Co , by Tyler, for the $33,850, and with it a check from Gales St Sea ton for #7.WW. It would be necessary for the jury to determine whether that ?7,000 was converted by Mr. Cullom to his own use or not Mr. Chilton followed with the opening of the defense After recapitulating the manner in which the defendant had transacted the duties of his charge. Mr. C. went on to state that Mr. Culhim fpil iinrlor tKo rl \ -0 ir ** 1 ?... .uv u?p>miu>c ui nit-Mrs riives and Mayo, two publishers. When this displeasure became known, Mr Culloin went to Congress and asked that a committee should be appointed to inquire into his whole otiicial conduct. That committee was appointed, and were engaged for nearly two sessions of Congress in the investigation. and that committee reported that they found no charge against the defendant. Those interested in pursuing this matter?no doubt for th? public good and for the preservation of the public moral*?went to the Grand Jury. Three successive terms of the Grand Jury was this matter pursued,and three grand iuries ignored these charges, until a fourth Grand Jury finally succeeded iu finding the four indictments, the flrstone of whioh the jury were now empanelled to try. Upon the conclusion of Mr. Chilton's remarks, the Histrirt A tfnnirif ?. **- - -* 1 ...?/ uv J V.1UICU ?u IUC 9U1I1U Coi IV W geaton, junior editor of the National Intelligencer, testified that the tirm of Gales & Seaton publish the Annals of Congress, the Register of Debates,and the Public hand l.awi. After the passage of the art of Congress of March 3, 1S57, authorizing the purchase of certain books by the Clerk of the House of Representatives for new members The tirm of Gales \ Seaton. as tbe publishers of certain works thus authorized to >>e published, sent to Mr Cullom in relation to the order for siid books, which the tirm exptcted he would give them for the books required. The witness afterward called on Mr. Cullom at his lodgings; this was in the following Decemlx-r Stut to him tlrst by Mr. Detbie or Mr Moore, or perhaps by iHitb those *entlcinen 111 answer to the message Kent by tht tlrm to him. Mr. C said that he would call on the witness, and he did rail after a few day#. It was alter the adjournuieiit of Congress. Mr. Cullom called and i>t relation to these hooks above mentioned.said that he could not <jive an order for the books himself, as he did not know how many would be wanted He said he would send Mr. Hugh Tyler to witness, and that as many books as Mr. Tyler should think proper to take he would order He gave witness to understand that he had placed the whole matter in the hands of Mr. Tyler Mr. Tyler did "all i a few days after this, and when he iid come he IT1HfiP a ? 1 IMrfi o. * -W?A ? ?nu,uw ao a ptri UCUUl^t* Oil 'JW sets of books, which he Mid were wanted He *tited that he would procure an order for 90s t? of books if we would give him 2l> per cent. V\ itnesa at once decided not to consent to any s.icti extortion, but not wishing to state so to him In so many words, he told Tyler that he would consult with Mr Gales upon it. A day or two nflerward witness wrote to Mr Tyler that he could not accept his proposition In a few days Tyler called again and proposed his ultimatum, which was that he would procure the order for the !<0 set* of books if we would give Li in 87,000; nor would lie give any order at all without the |>ayinent of that sum ax per centage An necessity knows no law, this proposition was accepted and submitted to The rh?<*k pvtnrU<4 Ku Ti'l*-* w?- *1 *' ' www ?< ' ? a J ?? a? uiumi tliai I'll / j 1-.37.

Witness knows there was a contract in writing l>etween Messrs Cullom and Tyler, in which power of attorney was given to Tyler to purchase the books required under tve act of Congress. Witness don't know what became of it \\ ltness saw Mr. Cullom produce It in the presence of the House Committee and give it to them, and on tbe same dav, after tbe committee adjourned, witness had occasion to jjo into tbe committee room to write a letter, and saw this contract lying by itself on a desk Witness took It and gave it to Mr. Cullom. be thinks. Has not sten it since. Has looked 1 r it diligently since, at the request of Mr. Cullom. but was unable to find it Mr Bradley, for defense, here proposed to exit mine (Jen Cullom, for the purpose of showing that such a written contract was made and executed between Mr Cullciii and Mr Tyler, and that Mr Cullom had given it to tbe House Committee, and that It had been mislaid, and he was unable to ttud it, though anxious inquiry had been made for it, both by the defendant and Mr. Ingram. To this the District Attorney made no objection. and Mr. C. stated to the Court and jury that such a contract had been made between himself and Tyler; that be produced it to the House Investigating Committee for the purpose of haviug it spread upon the record; ifna that he left 11 in the custody of the clerk of that committee; and that he had never seen it since, though he had made every ettbrt to tlnd it The court then adjourned. To-day.?The court met at the usual hour, and the case of the United States ri. William Culloin was continued Mr. Ould, for the United States, called Mr Ingram, who continued his testimony of vesterday, by stating that, he was appointed dv Mr. Cullom soon after that gentleman was elected The contract between Cullom and Tyler witness saw after the adjournment of the :iIth Congress The committee begun their labors in December, 1857, and s^t till March, 185M. Witness was appointed in Iw6<>. soon after Cullom was elected. Never heard or the contract in question before witnes* saw it In the committee. Tyler bad been furnishing book* prior to witness seeing the contract. Don't know whether the contract was placed on tile iu the Clerk's office or not. There was a hie clerk, Mr. Buck. All witness knows about Mr. Tyler is, that be bad something to do about the furnishing of books Got that Information before witness knew of the existence of the contract. It was at witness's own instance that witness drew up the cluck for the payment of the money to Gales A. Beaton. The voucher came in the name of Galea it Seaton, and of course the check was drawn in their favor No order for books passed through the hands of witness. Witness understood the contract to be an authority to Tyler to "furnish books for the House of Representatives under the law of Congress. W itu< ss was more of a disbursing clerk tuan anything else. There was many otber matters connected with the office with which witness had nothiug whatever to do. Tyler was not an employee of the Clerk of the House, aild drew nn ninrv frnm th? I'Urlr 1!

After that Shiili'igton and Taylor A Maury were authorized to f irnish the books, and their accounts were furn>hed, and they were paid in the same manner as all others who had accounts at the Clerk's oth'-e Tyler was never In the Clerk's otflre after his authority ceased Don't know whether Tyler surrendered the contract to ullom or not Witness knows that the gentlemen before alluded to furnished me oooka arter Tyler * authority to furnish them was taken away. Witness is less inclined this morninjt to think he furnished the check for AJ.S50 in favor of Gales & Beaton to Tyler, than he was yesterday. Mr Suter, of the. lirm of Snter, Lea & Co.. sworn.?Testified that he never saw the chec k for the S3*2.650 in question that he knows of. There was a deposit or a large amount In favor of Gales Ac Sen ton at the bank of Suter, I ,ta A Co. Thinks It came from Gales & Seaton's bouse. The chec k in question (which was here given to th^wltness for identification) witness don't think be ever saw before. Witness has a receiving teller. Witness thinks the deposit was made ov some one connected with the house of GaUs A Seaton. Col Seaton, recalled, was desired to look at the check in question. Examined it, and stated that he had no recollection now of having seen it before. Don't think be deposited it Don't know who deposited It. Maybe Mr. Donoho, or maybe Mr. Coyle. Maybe the check went Into U- J 0 ??- r* - ? " - ~ tuc uaiius vi mr uaies filter, I.ea dt Co , were expecting this cheek there. It was to be deposited there to satisfy certain things due them, among which was this check of Tyler's for #7,0<>U. The written order for the books came from Mr. Cullom. Jt was sent by his messenger, probably. Witness d d not see Mr. C. after he turned witness over to Tyler The order in question was given after the check for #7,000 was given to Tyler. The publisher's price of the l?ooks is $5 per volume Never sold them for less; never before this sold them to agents, but directly to the principals. Witness mentioned the extortion of the $7,000 by Tyler snortly after the transaction, but never to (Jen. Cullom. Witness explained here that he never went before any grand jury in this matter of his own instance, but only after repeated summons and peremptory orders from the officers; and that in the other caaes pending /-..ll 1 u^umot *?cn vuiiuiu lic wflB noi & wiiiifss, nor did be testify before any grand jury in relation to them. The witness stated this to show that be had not acted officiously In this matter.

Thr Cask of Oporgk Armstrong.?We mentlwnt-d a few days a^o the arrest of a white and a colored man on suspicion of playing a Solomon Nortbrup game in the country, near this city. The Albany Journal of the Ttli inst has the following on the subject: "We learn that one George Armstrong, a free colored man. born in Jefferson county, in this State, left Watertown some three weeks since, in company with a man by the na(jie of Kenjam'n. who is a ilsh dealer. Nothing more was heard from George until the 5th inst . when his sister received a letter from the linn of Carusi & Miller, lawyers, of Washington citv, who say tint George is in jail there on the charge of being a fugitive slave. What hi* fortunes have been since leaving home, or how hegot into his present dilemma, is unknown to his friends; though they conjecture that Benjamin may possibly havtr had something to do with it On these facts ar.d others of a satisfaf tory nature being made known to Gov. Morgan, he at once caused to be made out the necessar, papers and credentials, to authorize a'id ?rn?nur<<r VI * 11 * ,,, i vw'i'wnd . uauuutA. oi ? ilieriOWll, TO proceed to Washington to procure the liberation of tbis free colored man, imprisoned for no otlier crime, it would appear, than that of being black." This colored individual, whose arrest, in company with a white man named Fred- rick Ackse, by Air J. B. Frizzle, a few miles above Georgetown, was noticed in the Stir some days a.'o, was brought out for a hearing before Justice 1 l>onn this morning, lie was .trr>st? d uml? r suspicions circumstances, having |>ass-d himself ; s the slave of a man named Benjamin, who managed to esccpe, and who ottv-red Armstrong for sale, knowing him to be a free negro Messrs Carusi & Miller appeared for Annstrong and askfd his discharge Mr. John Haddock, of Watertown, N.

Mr Haddock staled that be hop?d that the authorities would have the man Benjamin indicted, as it was an offense that ou^ht to be promptly and properly punished, and said that he thought the identical person could be obtained by requisition upon th*? Governor of New York without the least difficulty ns '< he had no doubt that he knew the individual and wher? he resides Ackse, who only fell in company with Kenjamin ana Armstrong on the road, was discharged. Opining of thk Agricultural Fair Geodndr at Alexandria.? Trial of Moic,r$.?TheGazette of this morning says: "The Potomac, Piedmont, and Valley Agricultural Society inaugurated its pra<ucai operations yesterday by a trial of mowers on the grass , rnP grown upon the ground* of the 1 Society, between Poor's House and Mush Pot j lanes. Arrangements for opening the trial having j been made, the following gentlemen were named as judges: John A. Washington, Ksq , of Fauquier county; J.G. Lane. Ksq , of Rappahannock j county, Va.; and Dr J H Bavne, of Prince ! George's county, Md. The following entries were inadeforthetrial: TheMcCormlck Mower?Addi- | ton,Wallace& Co.; Wood'sSingle Mower?Meade A Marye; Klrby's American Harvester?Knox A Brother; The Buckeye Mower? W H May. Tbe Wood machine was first started, cut a clean swarth, and was much admired Then foltbwed, in turn, the American Harvester, the McCormick machine, and the Buckeye, the second of which j cut a very wide swarth, and the latter worked wuu grrai ease. i nen xoiiowed several trials with each of the machine* in reference to the various qualities of the harvester* The judges followed the machines on horseback, and quite a number on foot. The whole appearance of the j party as th# harvesters moved about the field, laying the grass on heaps as they passed, and cutting a clean path for those who followed behind, was novel in this section of the country, and very interesting The trial began about half past ten o'clock, and continued until the afternoon The decision of the judges is withheld until the annual fair of the Society. Alexandria Trade with China ?These who are skeptical of the enterprise of our Alexandria houses?if any such there be?says the Gazette, will be surprised to learn that some of our businrss houses have already opened trade with the Auti pours, ana are now milng orders for the Oriental market.

On Monday afternoon, th? rase of the United r*tat?s agt Patrick Martin who stood charged with burglariously entering the premises of David W. Hat**, and with an attempt at mpe upon Mary Jane Bate*. w>i taken up for trial before Justice Johnson. It appeared from , the testimony that the Mi?s Batrs were intimate with the accused, and th?t recently they h%d a slight difficulty. The parties reside in the Fifth Ward, within about three minutes1 walk of each others' dwellings On the morning of the ! 28th June, between two and three o'clock, the two sisters were In bed sleeping together The window was up. and there w * no curtain, it be'ng a back chamber One of the sisters was ' restless, being unwell, and about one o'clock went into her mother's room to get some matches. J*hr 1 id down and fell into a doze. About two [ she was awakened by a heavy pressure iidob her person, and on coming to herself she fount! a man in bed. and almost in flagranti deHnu. with tier. She screamed, and awakened her sister, and thev lx)th aaw th? man distinctly, at the moon shone full into the room: they saw hia size, form, and features, and were positive that the prisoner was the identical person. The defense endeavored to prove an alibi, the mother of Martin testifying that her son was in the house from twelve till half past four that morning. She bad two sick infants, which required her attention every half hour, and parsing through bis room often, she knew ber son was in bed and asleep, and could not have got out without ber notice. The stepfather of Martin testified to bis coming in at * U..4 J ' 1 * * ' uuiuia not see aim again t; 11 half past four o'clock. wh?n he saw hiin In bed asltep. The ladder with which he is said to have obtain* d ingress and by which he escaped belonged to a near neighbor, who could not account for the use of it by anybody that night. Other witnesses testified that one of the Miss Bates, on tbe day succeeding the affair, was uncertain as to the Identity of the person, saying sue thought it was a thick-set Dutchman, and had nodrsire to implicate Martin on account of bis mother Martin Is a young man, apparently twentv-two or twentythree years of age, and quite intelligent, and tbe principal witnesses are quite young and good looking, as well as lnt?lllo?ni Tk? ?? - m. uc rAouiiiIttHUII was conducted by Mr Ut'ermehle for the Government and \Y barton for defense. Justice Johnson held hit decision under advisement until ten o'clock yesterday morning. He then decided, in view of the conflicting natureof the testimony, to dismiss the rase A large number of witnesses were examined on both sides. Almost a Fatal Mistake ? Last Monday night. Mr. W. Evans, who, with tils family, is boarding at the corner of F and Ninth streets, had occasion to administer to a sirk child twenty drops of paregoric upon a physician's direction. Obtaining the medicine as tie thought from an apothecary, the dose was duly administered, and aiKitit 12 o'clock he was awakened by the hard breathing of the child, and he found it apparently A "ru- -? * ' uymg. ut pnysician was sent for, and the alarm of the family and the physician. of course, was very >rreat The suddenness of this result was unaccountable. The doctor decided that the child could not live much longer, and a minister wat, sent for to baptize it The pbysirian taking up a phial a*ked if the dose had been administer<-d from that. On IxMne answered In the affirmative, heat once exclaimed, " It Is laudanum !" The agony of the part nts was now Intense The father stirted for the apothecary, whose distress was only equalled by that of the parents wheu he diS' over'-d and explained the accident. The physician immediately made use of restoreti ves, and we are glad to learn that yesterday afternoon the child was much better, the effects of the dose having mostly disappeared.

In trying to avoid the express wagon, she was knocked down by the omnibus and run over, the wheels passing directly over her breast It is feared that she is very badly hurt, although the extent of her injuries are not yet known.
