/NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Wednesday, April aO, 184*4. Sterna Ship Britannia. We shall probably receive the news by this steamer this mommy. An Kara* Hersld iii hall an hour after its arrival. British Power?St tarn Power. The towering height to which the British empire has attained among the nations of the earth, and her present remarkable position throughout the world, has made it a matter of speculation, and profound deliberation, among statesmen and others, whether she has or ha* not reached her maximum elevation?whether she has attained the turning ooint in her career, and will now rapidly decline? whether she will go ou conquering and to conquer; or what will be the ultimate result of her present extensive and complicated war movements in nearly every part of the habitable globe. II we were to apply the same principles to this :;reat nation in estimating her true position and her future career, that we have bstn in the lubit of applying to the history of the great nations of antiquity, we should undoubtedly say that she had reached her topmost height, and would henceforth decline. JRut, instead of doing this, we must remember that a new and a most powerful element?uteam pinccr? has but as yesterday come into play, and is performing a most important part in the drama of that ua tion's history. This element has already produced a change in the history of the great events of Europe. Asia, and this country, and even Atrica, the er.d o' which no man ere:h It has produced a species o r*volcti>n in the civilization of the world, and m rolved results greater in their magnitude than any other thing since the creation of the globe. Esglatid, with her inexhaustible mines of iron and of coal, is a gn at laboratory, from whence issue the materials that bind all her energies, dependencies, population, possessions,'and interests of every kind together, in all parts of the world where her subjects can be found, and on whom the sun ne ver sets. Look at her ulready immense number of powerful steamships that swarm in the waters of the Mediterranean, and enter everv port upon its beauti ful shores: tha'are found careeiiag in every sea of Europe, from the Frozen Ocean to the Hay of llisay and the Black Sea ; that have long since driven every other mode of transit out of the Euphrates and the Red Sea; that penetrate the Indus almost to its source; tnat asceud the Can' n river, in spite of every obstacle besides my rial war junks, and batter down the walls of th it ? ic c. lestial city : that are already ent n Y< ilow i, und approaching Pekin ; 11 every island and entering every h trbur in tk Vest Indies ; that -warm along the shores ol .N'ortli America, Irom he Gulf ol St. Lawrence to the Isthmus ofDarien; and that regularly transmit the rich produce of the ?nines of South Amen from ull its principal ports, on the east and \ 1 , to the great commercial metropolisof tb I, < rowded, busy London.? Look at all this hat element she has fo sustain her in h for empire. It is true that the of apart of the West India lines ot , so far as they are limited to a commercial enterprise, have been found to be a losing concern, and will have to be abandoned. The same may be said also of the merely commercial line ot steamships between Boston and Liverpool ; that has also turned out to be a losing concern, and must also be shortly given up. For it is an indisputable fact in the history and policy of commercial navigation, that no enterprise ot the kind can be ultimately and permanently successful, unless it starts from some great central point in the old world, and terminates in some equally great central point in tiiis country. Those two points are Liverpool and New York ; and they ure made so by their natural, commercial and financial positions ; and to be successful in a commercial point of view, this is the route which every successive enterprise must take. Asa proof in point, we need only mention the i heal Western, which is the only steamship that has ever made a profit, trading between the two nations ; and her owners find that she must run betwetn Liverpool and New York t? be permanently prosperous. In these respects,and in all o her respects, then, it is very clear, that th? application of steam power to the navigation of the ocean, and to the great rivers of the earth, is yet but in its infancy. And the consequences resultiug from the introduction of this power by the British nation in all their commercial and military movements, are no more developed at present than was the strength of Hercules developed, when with his infant limbs he strangled the serpent in his cradle. It is true, that the recent defeat of the I3ritish'troop3 in Afghanistan is)somewhat menacing to the power of that nation; but if they nave return, mrry imyc uuuc ou uivc muivcu witcb, more awful to return. Nothing can prevent the British from having poase.-sion of all the large navigable rivers of India and the East; from the Indus to the tianges and Burrampooter. So in China ; as they have entered ihe.Caiiton, so]will they enter and take possession of all the large navigable rivers in that country. In short, the application of steam p>we: to the consolidation of her immense empire and energies every where beneath the sun, is only commenced ; and the results cannot even be calcu Uted upon with any reasonable data before the termination of the piesent century. We see the results of the emp'oyment of this element as a means of consolidation in our own country ; composed as it is of so large an extent of territory, filled with}?uch a mass of discordant materials, and so many conflicting interests. Steam oower binds the whole together in a compact mass; ana but for the application of th s power, the union of ihe twenty-six states would not last twenty years \ndso it is with the consolidation of the energies of the British Empire. The political union depends jpon the social union ; the intermingling frequently and at the rr.oit remote points of(the social, political, and comri ercial elements of the whole nation And nothing which can be brought to bear upon the energies of a nation, binds them so (thoroughly og-thr a.- the application of steatn power, and its '.-menu, te every rantiii cation of the social and po litical system. lusomTxsr Electiok is J use ?A very important election takes place in.this city, usder the new School 'aw, tor School Commissioners and Trustees, on the first Monday in June. We understand that preparations are making to give this contest a re- ] ligious chat ic'.er entirely?and that the great line ot division w.ll be Protestant aud Catholic. Many of the churches and clergymen are entering warmly into this project. Through the b< sutiful female members of the churches, they are leadi ng the young ideas how to shoot into a politicaldirrction. If this election should be conducted on religious principles entirely, it will present some new and ctiriobs aspects in the movements of society, lloththr present po'ittcal parlies may lecrive their downfall, aud a new organization dieted, founded on d:s'inctive opinions in religion at.d philosophy.

One of the most interesting and important movements lias recently taken place in Baffilo, that has ever been witnessed there since the contemplated settlement ot' Orand Island by tht Jews, the ureal tailure ot Benjamin Rathbun, the burning ot the Caroline, or any other deeply exciting and intensely interesting event that has occurred there during the present century. The details of this m at extraor dinary movement appear to run in this wise A short time since the following notice appeared in one or more ot the Buffalo papera, in relation to the New York Herald:? " The Executive Committee of the Young Men's Association of the city of Buffalo, having passed a resolution of which the following is a copy?" Resolved, That the President be requested to call u meeting of 'he Association, for the purpose of obtaining an expression of their opinion as to the propriety of taking the New York Herald"? I do, in compliance with the request contained in I said resolution, call and hereby give notice, that there will be a meeting of " The Young Men's Association of the city of Buffalo," at the Lecture Room of said Association, on Saturday evening, the 16th instant, at 7 o'clock. Dated April ISth, 1843. W. L O. SMITH, President." This simple, modest, and unpretending notice, it appearp, stirred up all the moral, financial, social, political, religious, satanic, and air other elements that exist in Buffalo, with its literally floating population of 110,00:) souls ; the priests, the lawyers, the financiers, the doctors, the brokers, the bankers, the mechanics, the merchants, the while men and Indiune, the mixed breeds, rich and poor, honest and dishonest, moral and immoral, all ages and sexes, have set themselves sedulously to work to discuss the great, the exciting, the intensely inieresting and allab orbing question, "shall the New York Herald be read, or shall it not!" One of the results of this agitation and excitement, has been the getting up of a counter movement, uud a counter notice to the above, in manner and form as follows : ? "WHO ARK THK DICTATORS 7 Let every member of the " Young Men's Association" attend the meeting on Saturday evening and liaten to the sage reasoning of the moralists who shall dictate the kind rf rt'BfliiKr hcit fit.H.l to thi? morala nf thid Pnmmnnifv At which time it i* proposed that a Censor be appointed to regulate the quality and quantity oi reading each member shall enjoy." From this, and various similar movements in different parts of the world, it seems that the character, the influence, the power, the intelligence, the system of morals and finance, and every thing else pertaining to the New York Heruld, combined, is becoming one of the most interesting and exciting questions ot the age. And we seriously doubt, whether the singularly stirring and extraordinary theories of Professor Lycll, the great geologist, relative to the upheaval and subsidence of the earth and its baked crust, its age, duration and destruction? the new magnetic philosophy of Richard Adams Locke?the prophecies and calculations of Miller in relation to the end of the world in 1844, and the speedy approach of a new state of society and existence under the Millenium?the ultimate success of Sir Robert Feel in carrying out and perfecting his new financial and commercial policy?the precise situation and sufferings of the wives of the British officers in Affghan?the rapid spreading of Mormon principles, and increase of Mormon converts to Joe Smith's great empire in the west?the state of coon hunting in Texas?the prospects of the war in India ?the chances of success possessed by Henry Clay and Martin Van Buren, for the next presidency? the right of search?the sugar question in France? the insurrection in Rhode Island?the completion of the Thames Tunnel?the disputed election in the Sixth Ward?the s'ate of morals in Manchester?or even the result of the war in Chiua, between the British and the brother of the sun and moon, with the seven stars thrown in for cap ornamentp, can, by any possibility, exceed the intense interest now felt, and that will continue to be lelt the whole of this century, in this most important and absorbing question,?" Shall the New York Herald be read, or shall it not be read 1" Early this morning, we expect by Pomeroy'a unrivalled Express a decision, with a report of the debate. An Extra will be issued immediately on its receipt. parxas axo Plots.?Ever since Glentworth's debut in pipelaying'literature and philosophy, there has been a most consuming mania among certain small politicians to get up plots and produce explosions, by means of threatening to publish private papers and confidential letters. Glentworth first attempted to blow up Mr. Curtis, the present Collector, by his literary brochure, ushered into the world under' the print ! and" patronage of Bryant, the green-grass poet. That literary production having fallen short of its purpose, we now find that the Hon. | Charles F. Mitchell, Forger and M. C. has also turned round upon his heel, and is endeavoring to burst a bomb shell upon Mr. Wetmore, and create an excitement that may help to have him removed. Both these events are very interesting movements ?started by interesting men?and patronised by very, very interesting man-midwives. Glentworth and Mitchell are both a pair of the sweetest of sweet saints. The first, according to his own contession, perpetrated fraud at the elections in 1838-30? and the latter has been proved in the Court of. Sessions to be a forger and a financier ol the most approved kind- Both were taken up and patronised by individuals who possess same curious reminiscences in the history of their lives Glentworlh's plot buist upon hisown head, only ending in the sale of a fewhundred copies to refund the outlay ot capital furnished by Buggs Sc Bryant, pinters and poets to Tammany. Mitchell's plot to blow up the Navy Agent will probably burst about these days, causing every body to enquire "what naughty boy's cracker is that gone oil"!" If Mitcheli's papers are published they will hardly be read-but many may inquire who are the agents of that virtuous forger in the business? To this queetiou wc shall reply one of these days, giving a whole history of the intrigue?the persous engaged in it? and, the purposes entertained in its concoction. It will be a droll expose, and it wiil come, tooThe Spoils?The Whig cliques and committees are very busy selecting the happy dogs that are to be appointed to office, when they get the corporation spoils next month. Rhode Island Election ?It seems that the lie volut.oaary party held their election in Rhode I.-lund on Monday, but no fight took place, as only one ide?one pirty?voted ; the other side, the governmeat party?voted ?n Wednesday (to day. Thus there is likely to be no collision until both parties elected take their seats in May ; ai d then the great fight will come off" there about the same time that our great light comes ofl'here. Lxckcci vrixo.?The ultra loco focos are getting up a petition here to impeach the President, because he wrote a soothing letter to the Rhode lsland'-rs, dissaading them from cutting each other's throats. It t? highly unconstitutional, according to the views of ihe?" patriots, to prevent neighbors from blet dieg each other. What idea will the ultras next i start 1 An American in India ?We understand thftt it wus a natural Yankee who hsd taught the Aflghnns to renst th'' British power in India so long, and who left the seeds of diplomacy an'l ducip'ine with theni that recently burst t.r;h so successfully at Oabool. His name is l)r. Harlan,?a native of Philadelphia Harlan was found occupying a high rank in the Afghan army whit Cabool was first taken by the Kn^lish. The British captured him, and scat him back to Haropa. He is now in this country, and says ha\ with a'milit try leader, the A%h?n?cou'd overrun all India and China, create a new Mo^ul . aspire?rival Genghis Khan?and drive the Hi ish entirely from the east.

Interesting KdltsrlU LIM gmttA rait for libelbrought by Samuel Medary, edi- li tor of the " Ohio Statesman," of Columbus, Ohio, p against Harper ite Corbet, publishers of the New b I.sbon Palladium, was tried on the 8'.h inst, in the Court of Common Pleas, of Columbiana County, n Ohio. The plaintiff has long been conspicuous as State Printer and editor of the leading de- p mocratic paper in Ohio. He was charged by q the defendants with having dishonestly appro- c priated to his own use the quasi or outside ^ quires of paper, furnished him by the State for the j public printing- It appeared on the trial, that in e 1839, the plaintiff had sold and made use of some h quasi or outside quires of paper furnished by the h State, claiming them as his own by the general ilea no r\f nrinfaru ami lha 4*nolAm r\ f Iiij nuaanril h in the State printing. This circumstance was in the ^ winter of that year investigated, at the instance of Mr. Medary, by a committee of the House of lie- a preventatives. Nineteen witnesses, practical printers, or engaged in the business, and of different po- v liiical parties were examiued before the committee, ? by whom it was clearly established to be the usage ' of printers and of Mr. Medary's predecessors in ' office, to claim as their own, and appropriate as a perquisite, such of the outside quires as were not t used for " fly," " prooi" or " tynipan sheets h Two reports, (a majority and a minority report) j were made. By both reports Mr- Mcdary was ac- |j quitted of all blame, but a resolution to abolish tfe n perquisite was proposed by the minority. In July, 1841, Mr- Medary, in passing through New Lisbon, was offered a dinner by some of his political friends; c whereupon the defendants who published the. whig H paper in that place, renewed the charge against c Mr. Msdary, of having stolen the paper of the " State. J Three points were made by the defence: 9 1st. That the publication was merely a political attack that had been publicly made by whig orators in Columbus, at the Whig Convention, on , the 22J of February, 1840, and had been frequently repeated ever since, by the whig papers and orators d throughout the State, without their beiug called to p account by Mr. Medary. . 2d. That the " Statesman," published by the plaintiff", frequently contained libellous attacks upon ' other persons, and therefore its editor was not en- n titled to heavv damages tor an injury often commit 0 ted by himself. 3d. That the defendants were poor and unable to pay heavy damages. in reply, it was insisted by the plaintiff", that al though the charge was often made against him dur- ' ing the campaign of 1S40, yet the fury and wildness b c . :_: - * u.. (>I mm campaign waen Buiiiciriit iraoun wuy iic ? did not then seek redress, and also furni-hed some ? extenuation to those who then madr it for political ? effect. But that on its repetition in lfcMl, when polltical madness hud greatly subsided, sod sufficient time and opportunity had been all'orded fit* every one to understand the truth of the matter. Mr. Me- ' dary was required by duty to his friends, his family tl and himself, to submit no longer to the iinputa- " tion. p That the Courts were open to all who were ag- f grieved by libels published in the Statesman, and he was fully able to respond in damages. And as " to his own personal character for honor and inte grity, it was fully established, not only by his po- g litical friends, but the editors and publishers f, of the Whig and Tyler and abolition papers in f( Columbus, the whig Treasurer of State, Mayor of the city, and members of the bar, in their depoei tions, bore the highest testimony. And finally, that 11 the object of the suit was neither to make money K for himself nor to break down the defendants, but p only to put an end to the charge by an investigation t> in open Court and the verdict of a jury. c After a patient investigation the jury, consisting of seven whigs and five democrats, returned a ver- c diet in favor ot the plaintiff, for $387, which, tak- u ing into consideration the circumstances of the de- e< fendants, as claimed by their counsel, was a high tl verdict. ... p The result of this suit, coming, as it does, from a majority of his political opponents, alter a fair and S( full investigation, and the utmost exeriions in de- L fence, not only as to the merits of the case, but in k exciting on the trial, party feelings and prejudices ii against him, is highly creditable to Mr- Medary. di It will, doubtless, \ ut an end to a charge against ? him, invented for political effect, and persisted in by his adverearies, with a malignity tieyond paral- v lei. While at the same time it establishes the liability of editors for their publications, no matter what unworthy object may give rise to them, nor with what frequency and systematic violence they may be repeated. j Moan Libels?Horace Greeley and Thomas McKlrath, editors of the print called the Tribune, ] were arrested yesterday at the suit of WuJiam F.

Park Theatre?Jirold's New Piece.?The " Prisoner of War" is the title of a new piece written by Douglas Jerrold, which has just been brought out at the Park. Without any very great pretensiors to the dignity of a complicated play,it is certainly a very pleasing and humorous-little drama. The scene is laid at Verdun, in France, during the time w hen the prison cf that place w as tenanted by British officers, sailors, \'c , prisoners-of war. The principal characters are Captain Channel (Chippendale), his daughter (Miss Buloid), Lieut. Basil (Barry), privately married to her, Beaver, a merchant, (Bellamy), Peter Pall Mall, a cockney, (Williams), his sister (Mrs. Vernon), Tom Heyday,a midshipman, her lover, (Clark), and two boardiac house keepers at Verdun (Mrs. Wheatley and Mrs Barry) ? i ne pioi is vi-ijr s.nij'ir, ur ruuirr mere is notilIllfi deserving the n m- of a plot. Basil, and Channel, and Heyday arc all in piioon J Miss Channel and Misw rail Mall arc boarding at the house kept by Mrs. Whe.nley ; Beaver is a great scoundrel, ana trice to seduce or run away with Mies Channel; to prevent this Basil and she arc privately married; her father hears cf this and gets enraged; a dud ensues, and both himself and Basil are ordered off to another prison. The prisoners dig through the walls of the prison, and are about to escape, when Beaver, who is arrested and sent to jail for not attending muster roll, overhears and betrays them to the governor The night for escaping arrives ; a scene oi quarrel and forgiveness ensues between Basil and Channel ; a guard ol soldiers enter and preveni their escape ; the officer however brings a letter from the Governor informing Cnannel (hat lie, Basil, Heyday and Pall Mall, (who has got intopns n for knocking down a Frenchman) aic at' exchang d for other prisoners. Beaver, w ho betrayed them is sent to a still worse dungeon and exits in a rage. Mi-<* Channel, and Miss Pull Mall, rush in?one o her father's and the other to her lover's arms?and the curtain drops- The only cliar.fters worth criticism are those by Williams, Mi.-s Buloid and Mrs. Vernon; there all played superbly.

Wulugton. [Convspondaaea of the Herald.] Washitoto*, April 16, llM!. The late exciting debate in the House, about war and diplomacy, was put an end to on Saturday, b> the appropriation bill being taken out of committee, and reported for final p i&sage on Monday. It sprung on a motion to strike out the items in the bill for Mexico and other foreign missions, which was only done to teat the war spirit of the House. Mr. Adams poke the greater part of two daya, chiefly in reply to Messrs. Ingeraoll and Wise ; and entertained his hearers with his vast treasures of historical and di* nlnmotio xnam!ntss ? ? i<?.?.v .mvw?..c. wo? parucu any severe on Mr. Ingersoll, for trying to push us iiits a war with England, in the guise of a peace talk. He.took, what is called here by some, the English side, the sober view of the question?he was not for war wiih England without necewty, and he saw no occasion for it at present. It should be a source of great congratulation among our countrymen everywhere, that Mr. Adams is still in the councils. There are lew real statesmen in Congress, and the want of them is mostly felt in international questions. Mr Wise spoke with warmth on the popularly of a war with Mexico. He pointed to the rich treasures in the temples and churches of Mexico as a booty to the victor. He was willing himself, he said, in case of a war, to join an army from the valley of the Mississippi?to cross the deserts of Mexico, and bivouac in the palaces of the Montezumas. It would be a good idea, perhaps, in case of a war with Mexico, for the preaentHouse of Representatives to be mustered into a battalion to join the army, there being so many Generals and Colonels full of light in that body. The Senate could lake care of ttie nation- The next despatches received from General Thompson, will no doubt make a sensation. Tne naval appropriation billis'the next in order ? The two steamships went aground again on Friday in coming up to the navy yard. Mr Habersham is preparing a very long counter report to the report ot Mr- Saltonstall from the Committee on Manufactures. Mr Cushing's report on the colonial trade will command great attention ; it is not yet priuted. Tne report on the New York Custom House lias at length been sent to the Treasury Department, anu is now under examination there. It is not improbable that the report will not be sent iuto Congress.? Roth houses have called for it, but it seems to be one of those cases wherein the President cau exercise his own discretion. Aaother issue is, not unlikely to grow out of this matter yet, which will be more personal than national, and certainly not beneficial Mr Clay will not leave the city for a short time yet. Ilis visit to New York is not positive. The Senate have not yet actf d on the large batch of naval promotions made tome weeks since, objections to several at the head of the list, impede the progress in others. it is said the Senate will reject Grand Consul to Bremen. Senator Cuthbert, of Georgia, appeared in his seat on Friday last, for the first time this session; he is a little earlier coming than usual, for a long session. A late Georgia paper has the following, as a part of a de-patch sent to Mr. C. by some of his democratic brother Senators at Washington:? M Oh brave bell weatber.of our herd, Who solitary and alone, Took Daniel the beard Whither ! ah, whither art thou gone 7 Come to the reicue, Cuthbcrt! come !

The great racer Botton, has left here ler New York, where he is to run with Fashion on the Long Island Course, the 16th of May, for twenty thousand dollars aside. This race will bring all the sporting men to New York; large sums are at stake, and bets even in this quarter, the odds perhaps on Boston. P. S. The Hon. I. Lawrence, M. C. (whig) front Pennsylvania, died to-day. He was much respected as an honorable meritorious man. lie had been in Congress for some years previous to the present Congress. Fire at Roxbuht, Mass.?There was a fire in Roxbury on the 16th inst. It commtinicated to the two story brick building on the corner of Tremont street, occupied by Joshua and William Seaver, as a store, the roof and interior of whiah were considerably injured, and a large woeden building on Tremont street, occupied by J. Houghton, as a grain tore and stable, was consumed. On Haggles street n number ef wooden buildings were destroyed belonging to Jes-e Billings and others, to the number of six or eight, when it come to Wyman's large floor cloth factory, the main building of whieh was entirely destroyed. Melancholy Accident.?We learn that a fatal accident occurred in Taunton on the 16th inst. A party of six gentlemen started in a sloop for Providence. Having proceeded a short distance, they concluded to go ashore. Five of them had got into the small boat, and the sixth, having cast off the painter, in attempting to leap in, upset it, and George Field, merchant tailor, of Boston, and Jas. Babbitt, of Taunton, were drowned. Thos. Prince, a clerk of Mr. Field, being unable to swim, clung to the boat uM'i be was rescued by another boat from the shore. Both have left families. Vice CHaneellor'a Court. Before Vice Chancellor McCoun. March 19 ?Edward Boirgirari vs. Juhn Delafield, Prttident of the New Yurk Banking Co , and othm.?This was a motion for an injunction on the New York Bonking Company, and the appointment of a receiver. In 1839 the Company agreed to loan the Hernando Railroad Cdfe. pany, Mississippi, $200,000,payment for which was to be made in cotton, to be shipped to Mr Delufielri. Joachim Hydec.ker, agent for the house of Boi atti, Boirgirurd & Co., of Havre, agreed with the New York Banking Com. pany to advance the V200.000 to latter, and have the cotton setitto said house at Havre. He advanced (150,000, the Company being responsible for such: but only 182 bales of cotton were sent, when the Mississippi Company failed in its contract. A very small amount of money w as remitted by the Now York Banking Company, end a balance of (90,000 to (100 000 remains due to Bonafh, Boirgirard It Co., of which house complainant was a member. He petitions for an injunction on the bank on the ground that it had failed in paying him his money; has ceased to do busiucss; (it has been cloving up fur some months) did not make proper r< turn to the Legislature agrreable to law, and in i'.s return placed a dent for (110,090, due by Mr. Hubbard, President of the Columbus Insumnce Co., Ohio, down as a portion of its good assets, but immediately afterwards took (40,090 in payment for the debt. Petitioner avers, also, that the directors have expressed an intention of placing the bank in other and strange hands, but even if they do not, justice to the creditors require the appointment cf a reeeiver, as Mr. Delafield himself is indebted to the company in a large amount, being something like (69,000. The petition is opposed on the ground that the complainant is not a creditor of the company, his contract having been signed by the President alone, whereas the law ri quires that such contracts should be signed by both President and Cashier. The stockholders also aver that the Company is not insolvent,and will be able to pay all dt man Is against it, and have a handsome surplus provide I the bank doea not go into the hands of a receiver. Tho Vice Chancellor, in giving his decision, showed that this court had power by law over the Free Banking institutions, treating them as incorporations. Aa to the obj iCtion that the contract is signed only by tbu president, he thought it mip ht stand as a defence in an action at law, but did not think this court, in its powers of equity, bound by it. The contract was evidently made by Mr. Dilafield on behalf of the bank, which was to get a profit the money from complainment. independnnt of th it bed failed in making a proper return of it* condition agreeably to the law of 1841, which n quire* all free b^nka to present a return'inJanuary giving their situation then, and alio their condition in the July prevlou*.

Strmng.?Objections were aide to a decree,or the ground that the petitioner la indebted in a fiduciary character, and alio because he has omitted to make a full inventory of his estate. The case has been before a commissioner. On the Md June, lata, he gave a promissory note, for $1*7,30, and subscribed it as " Guardian and Trustee." This note was endorsed to the opposing creditor and remains unpaid. His children owned a real estate in Connecticut, which he sold. Re was appointed by the Chancellor as guardian for the children, with power to invest the proceeds in lands in this State, and subsequently empowered to re sell and purchase lands in Michigan. In one of the operations purcnasmg part 01 m? (run estates, this note wu given, and became the property wm part of the trust estate, the signature was so subscribed. For reasons given, the Cuurt thought this simply a personal debt of the bankrupt, and not one imposed apon him by law or incurred in his character as gnardian or trustuo. It must be made to appear that the debt not paid and owing by him, appertained to the trust estate, and that at or after its creation he had means at eommaud from the estate to satisfy it ? The Court was of opinion that this objection was not supported. There was also objection that he had not given a full inventory of his estate. This was based on the supposition that he had an individual interest in property purchased by him in Michigan, whereas it it held by him in trust for his children. MfrtiL ckwntd.?The objections are based on hit not setting forth his property. He swears to having dona to to the best of his knowledge and belief, and nothing is shown to the contrary, and the objection is not allowed. There it also objection to his not being sufficiently explicit in showing the nature of his assignment, and a description of his assets. The Court thought this objection was properly taken, and i* wus sustained. Ckarltt U Lavrjay.? Obj. clions had been made that he omitted to set forth bis creditors?also that he had made improper transfer of his property. There are other objections which are not applicable te this stage of the proceedings, but may interpose a legal bar to discharge.? After rematk,the objections were overruled. Gwneral Sessions.
