From it we would deduce the moral, that while we would disclaim tbe pride, pomp, aDd circumstance of Imperial pageantry, as unfitting 1 our institutions and professions, we woold sedulously cherish tbe simpler republican principles i of reposing our feme and honors in the hearts and affections of oar countrymen I have now, in ^conclusion, to say that aa the Sarcophagus was originally presented with tbe suggestion of using i it as above mentioned, 1 now commit it wholly to the Institute as their own aud sole property, exI empt from aiiv condition. 1 am. ??y respectfully, yours, 4 c., Jksss Dumcas Elliott.

The charge made was for improperly interfering with an officer in the discharge of duty The warrant bad been issued on an affidavit marip before Justice Gilbert A Gib erson. by Jededlah GUtiugs, setting forth that tin waa authorized to arrest a colored man named Stafford Fay lie, who Is claimed by Mrs Catherine F. Thompson, of Virginia, a* her slave, mud is alleged to be a fugitive The aaid fugitive was employed iu the hotel of Mrs. Amanda Beverldge, and to that house the affiant, with John H Wiie, an officer, went /or the purpose of making the arrest on the 18th Inst , and there he waa. he alleges, 'improperly interfered with" by Capt Darling Mr. Blair plend the Insufli iencr of the affida- 1 vlt, it failing to set forth In what the interference consisted. it was necessary to declare an act upon which the magistrate could exercise judgment of the improper Interference The mere opinion of the atiinnt was not certainly ?uttii-i?*nt to go upon Mr. Gittlngs replied that be would show the act when it came to trial. Mr. Blair said "No, now is the time to set forth the distinct charge, in order that the justice may judge whether It is sufficient to issue upon, and if there is the least appearance of spite, and th? oath is made on an untruth, the case must result in an action for perjury " Justice Donn derided that as the case was novel in bis practice and the first coming up under the fugitive slave law in this District, be would take time to consult authority. In the meantime, as Capt Darling had not been arrested, in order to save him from any mortification of feeling, be would lie untitled, without arrest, of the time when the trial could proceed regularly.
