Mr. S. thought the trans action a legitimate one on M Delaroque's side, and bad not presented his check at bauk. taking it for "irntea that when he did so It would be duly fconcred.

The pirttes agreed to refer the case to the discretion of the Court to appoint a guardian with or without -regard to relationship, and the petition and answer -were withdrawn. The cue of the minor boy, Harvy Larker, con tinued from the last sitting, was resumed This is the case Where two sets of indentures conflicted. The evidence of Mr. Cull and Air. Dorritv was beard with regard to the fitness of both the parties -claiming the apprentice to have him. They indi cated nothing discreditable to either The boy hlmseif asserted hi* preference for Mr. Roby, whom be had first served, and made some com plaints of his usage by the other party, Mr. Toombs, and of the nature of nis employment there. Judge Purceil gaw him a lecture upon the danger of evil association, and advised him to accustom himself to good company and the Sabbath school, lie directed the parties to appear at the ?atu<day'a session, when he will select a proper guardian, without retard to the indentures drawn if ?> find* tucb a election best for the training of the boy The settlement of the estate of the late 8.

Tm P*acb Cokfkkksck ?The Peace Confer ference had a five bvurs' session yesterday, with rather an animated discussion of some points, though they adjourned in good temper and fra ternal feeling. The boprs and fears of tfce border *t*tates vacillated with each speech, some of whieh were very intemperate from both the extremes?; abolitionists and secessionists having, apparently, the same object In view?tnat of defeating all practicable plana of conciliation. The sootntrn Vaion men are confident of seme effectual agree ment. Tbe amendment of the Hon Reverdy Johnson wan adopted Monday bv a vote of 14 to rt?nil t?,? boutberd States except Maryland voting in tbe negative, considering themselves under instruc tion* to support Mr Crittenden's plan. TheSoutb, however, acquiesced after tbe result was an nounced, and tbe amendment was unanimously agreed to. A resolution was adopted yesterday limiting speeches to fifteen roinues, tbe object being to come to a final vote as early as practi cable. *~ Tiutii -Miss Cusbman gave ber closing performance last ntgbt before one of the largest Loans of her remarkable season here.
