Slate Temperance Convention?The legislature? Thaddius Steven*?Political Slang?O'm. Seott? Antimasunry Vttd Up?Popularity of the 1 feral, I, 4-c. We are all excitement and commotion. Besides the member* ofthc Legislature,and an unusual number of strangers in town for the past few days, their numberha* been greatly augmented by the arrival of an unusually large number of delegates to the State Temperance Convention, which commenced its labors here yesterday. The dillerrut delegations assembled at the Court House at 10 o'olock in the insrning, and marched in procession to the Baptist Church, where the Convention is to hold its ses sions. L. C. Levin, E?q , of Philadelphia was cho>cn President, and on taking the chair addressed the Convention in a very feeling and foreible manner. The delega es have aome together ma i festing the right spirit?overflowing with enthusiasm ; and having but one object in view,and that one the ad vancemrnt of the cause. Many of the dele pates, iu fact a majority <>f them, ate \s asliuigtoniani,?men who have strayed through all the labyrinths of intemperance,?who have been regarded as b; yoml the reaeh of moral effort, but who at last have been reclaimed. Well may it be said ? " Brightly has tt mperanoe dawned on our lanj." The convention will probably adjourn to-morrow. In oar legislature but little of moment is transpiring?the committees on the various subjects are busily cngagco arraying them in a proper manner, and it will probably be a week or two before they get rightly at work The resolution which wa> offered on Monday last, relative to the sale of i portion of our Mute improvements, was taken up in the Senate yesterday,and after some discission, so amended as to include all the improvement* of the State, receiving in payment therefere the Are per cent stocks of the State at their par value; and us amended agreed to. Tbaddeus Sievens?th" Great Mogul?the Magnus Apollo of Antimasonry?is already letting oA' in small quantities the bile that has been accumulating within bim lor the pas'two years,while he was enjoying himself in the swset retiracy of private lite. The other day, in the House, he made a ruth l>-ss attack upon the enterprising editors of the Intelligencer, lor no oti er reason than that they have rented their now building in Third street, to the Society of Odd Fellows, to be used by thera us a Hall. A* usual in all his tirade* against secret societies?against something which he in bis wisdom knows nothing about?he unreduced a great variety of worn out Antimasouic phrases, suc'u as "murdered innoci'uts," taw heads," " bloody bones," &c.&c. Indeed he appears to hare about him a never failing supply of " stereotype expressions," which he uses as occasion requires, when at a loss for reason or argument, forming a grand display ' Of speech without meaning, and words without wit." Gen. Scott and his "immense popularity" are still unheard of. Ilis Annmasonic fi lends in Pennsylvania are blown sky high by recent movements, and are in wor.e odour than ever. Its udvoc ttes are as unpopular as its doctrines are offensive. The editor of the Antiiuasnnic "Chronicle" of this place?the slanderer of President Tyler, and vilifier of the New York Herald?was an applicant for the public prin ing,but for want of friends,for want ef popularity, and for want of intlueucescould net get it Petiapijit i? well be did not,as lisc nth i< presses ought not to he supported at the expense of the State It would be a great pity, however, should his piper be permitted to down, and our little faction of Anti-Tyler raeu would shed many tear*. The popularity of the Herald continue* rapidly to increase It was observed by a member of the Senate the other day, that with such a paper in llarritburg, at the Herald, the State could be revolutionized in a year; and 1 believe it Our newt paper editors r-raind me of what tome French mah bat said: "In France," taid he, "editors are looking to the Ministry, but in America they are looking for a job." H. Superior Court. Before Judge Oakley. J ax. 14th ?Franri* H' iMtack vi (itcrge A. AVieman.? fhis wm an action for libel, the damages laid at ^.sOtX). Mr. Lasak, we need not say, is conspicuous, not only as a political man, being w< 11 acquainted with the secrets of both political parties, but at a military man. The defendant it publisher and proprietor of the German paper, the New York Starts Zoitung, which declares Martin Van Huron to know sMmcihing more than planting cabbages,and that old Hickory is not only a great warrior, but the greatest statesman that ever lived. In this papar of the 3rd June, 1S40 the following article appeared, being the cause of offence, lor whieh this action it brought: ? " The great Harrison Captain, Lasak, ordered the German c. mpanv of Washington Riflemen to parade last Monday, ta show his new whig recruits (aa was artanged in Albany) to Gov. Seward, who was then here. Unfortunately the Riflemen had not yet been sent to Albany to the great w hig universitv , and have therefore continued stupid locoforos. They thought that it would dugiare them to march out under a Captain who had lately exhibited the gravest symptoms f aberration of intellect, ami of wham, mottorrr, inmehint might be told which would bring him into the State Prison, if our laws allowed an oflrnce to be indictel which was committed more than two years age.? e.uuugu, mr " .inniigiuii nine ^mnp.uij uiu IIUI ?pp> Ji on parade. An enormous mass of men, however, assembled at Centre Market to see the hero of the day, who think* himaelf mighty enough to bring the volunteer citizen of the republic, against hit wuli, against hi* entreaties, again*? his sense of honor, against his dignity as a man, under the Austrian corporal's cane I Th" attempt was unsuccessful. Both at his arrival and departure trom heme, the indignation of the people was expressed by whistling and hosing-nay, even as he wui going home a large number of people followed him, and it is said some street l ovs threw stone* at him. Although we do vot approve of this, it is in the highest degree astonishing bow a man who lays claim to a respectable place in civil society, can make himself the object ol public contumely in ?pite of every warning, every appeal, arid dare to persist obstinately, when submission is prudence." The defendant pleaded justification, asserting ! that the plaiatiit, in tba tall of had been elected a m-iirbcr of the Legislature on a declaration of .,?.i i. ..n. i T., plaintiff wa* then captain of a uniformed company called the Washington Riflemen. Previous to the publication, the company requested him to rtsign his commaud, and rumors were in circulation that oil or about the 15th I) c. 1835, in the Marine Court,the plaintiff swore to naturalize a man named Peter Scnlosser, and that he ha^ been in the city for fire years, when the rever.-e was the ease. He < rdered a drill of the company on the 1st June, 1840; but the c mpany did not tuin out A large number ef persons appeared to witness the parade, and on the plaintiffnppearing, he was mobbed. These were the principal poiats for ihe defence. The case was managed on the part of plaintiff by Dav d C.raham, and by A. Vanderpoel (the Kinderhoik roarer) for defendant?the former assisted by Mr F. Hrown, and the latter by Mr. P. J. Joacbemssen The first witness called for defence was PitkR Sihlosser. who testified that he came to this country in January, 1831, and was naturalized in !)ceembcr, 1834. Witness is a tailor by trade, and keeps a p >rter house in Contre street. He first became acquainted with plaiatiff in September, 1835; was at Weidcmeyer'e, in William st. one day, and something was said about joining n military company, and also absut my being naturalized. The plaintiff, without my asking him, paid he would go to the Marine Court with me, and swear to my being qualified. I told him that 1 had declared my intentions for three years, bet had not been in the country the five years required fer naturalization. He replied that a few days would make no difference. We went to the Marine Court, when he took the oath required aa to knowing I had horn kere for fire yearn, and I got ray paper* I wanted to go home and rot my declaration paper, bat Captain Lasak said it wa* no matter?he would tell tho Court it had been lost, wbieh he did.

Did not hear the latter tell Captain L how long he had been here. Captain Tompkins sworn ? Recollects the parade order for the 1st June. It was issued by Capt. Lasak, in obedience to regimental orders. Saw the defendant, Mr. Newman, at the hall on that day lie took a Vt ry active part in hissing and i*citing the people Saw him insult >lr L by exhibitions of this kind. Saw hi in go into the stre't and follow Captain Lasak. He was very active iu creating the exciteaaent. Sdhio other evidence was offered, but nothing very material elicited. Then came on the slimming np of counsel?and the way that the Rearer walked into plaintilf, need not bc| mentioned. His politica', moral, and military character was reviewed, in no way forgetting the perjury?aDd his attempt to work damages out of a man for honestly exposing ihem, showed him te be more foolish and more wicked tbsn people had supposed him to be. The captain and legislator was emphatically used up?not agraiu of his petit bedy corporate being left David Graham did wonders iu the way ot bringing bim back, but without avail The Court, in its charge, stated that the law of Libel was very plain. In actions on crimiaal process.justification is not permitted unless it can be showu that sow*- positive public good was contemplated by the person publishing. Hut it is different in civil suits, where damages arc sought in a Court oi Law. in ini" cast?, wncrc a criminal^c is rnadi*, t defendant is justified, provided he can I bring the same degree oi evidence is required by u public prosecutor in supporting his allegation, on a similar charge, but it must be done by the oath of more than one witness. Unfortunate fy for Mr. Lasuk, the defeudunt, appears to have made out his case?for, whether misled by zeal tot-ewe the party, er otherwise, he had certainly sworn to (hit as a fact, which he knew nothing about, and which reallt was false ; and, moreover, what he was given to uuderstand as really being so. It was for the jury, however, to decide. After being absent about an hour the jury returned a verdict in favor of plaintiff for $'?>. Before Judge Tallmadge. Jan 14?ll'iliiiim Cowan vs. Danitl M Peywr ? The plamliS' keeps the Bazaar. On a Sabbath last summer, he let a valuable horse to the defendant, who was to go a short distance in the country and return the saute afternoon, but instead of that he went to Kockaway, over-driving the auiinal, and whipping it severely to make it keep up with a faster horse, which was iu company. The horse was not returned till next day, wh?n there were large " whales" on its back and sides, as stated by a witness, the size of a man's finger, and the same afternoon it died. Action is therefore brought for its value. The counsel far defendant moved for a nonsuit, on the ground that the horse was hired for a purpose which w>uld be a violtiinu of the Sabbath, and consequently illegal, The nonsuit was y ranted. The folio wing are the remarks made hv the Court on grantixg the nonsuit ;? Br thi Corar.?This is s contract made between those parties, whereby the plaintilf agrees to let to the defendant a horse,to be ns.d in trav. thug on the Sabbu h tor a purpose prohibited by thu Statute. In this con' tract the UeiendUHt agrees to pay for the use oi the hone, and not ovei-drive or otherwise injure bin. Tbc action is brought for a violation ot this latter part of the agree ment, to wit: misusing the hoise, in consequence of which he die 1.
