Governor King has proven his regard for tne lives of his fcllow-cili/eiis. He lias insi i tinned the supremacy of the laws at the <<prn*e of not n drop of blond. He has won a prou I station among his fellow men. and he will ratify his claims to the regard of the whole country by resorting to healing measures, and ns f.u as praetienSle'hy erasing the memory of the recent troubles of his glorious little State. All that we ask of the citi/.en* of other States is to leave the people of Rhode Island '.o regal :'.e their municipal concern* in their own way, an! attar their own liking.

Thjse suggestions have so much of wisdom and propriety in thein, that we trust they will have a proper influence with the authorities of Rhode Island. We verily believe that this glorious republic has had a narrow escape front civil war.?a civil war e"t on foot by a clitjiu of reprobates and unprincipled politicians in this city. Now that the danger is over, let us be thankful for the happy result?let moderate and conciliatory councils he pursued? but let the mark, of Cain be set upon the agitators and evil councillors that led on the dangerous movement. Thank God matters are no worse. Stkam Ship British Qubex?This steam ship is now momentarily expected. She will bring three days later intelligence. Foitrierism.?Tint Explanation.?In this mighty age of new occurrences?new religions?and new pniraoopuicu system*. rounermn wtmto advance with rapid stiidos fifty miles wide, principally through tlie ngency and support of the " New York Tribune,'* a paper that can extract tha essence of sunbeams from New England squashes, and put them into dollar bottles, with elegant labels. But still the question is daily put, what is Fouriertern !?what are its doctrines? What are they driving at? The constant harping on "harmonies," " attractive industry," " community of property," "social order," &c., <tec., seem to convey no distinct ideas. In this craving for real knowledge, we must look beyond the "Fourier organ," and dtp into the "Fourier reservoir" itself.| But this has been done to our hand by the "Albany Atlas," who has a capital account of the place proposed by " Fourier" to nuke industry attractive ut the North pole bv melting all the ice, then adding the following cx piisite glimpco at the new philosophy:?

He devotes a portion of his eosr to i ssWsiaf to what available and pleuvant nsci nlJ and tough heniami women of the age of sixty and upward*, may bo put in the new system, illuftrating the one by the o'hcr. This is capital. It will l>c seen, therefore, that tliere is something good in Nazareth. If Fourier could mttke a contract to pay the debt of England, l>v cultivating lira's eggs, what is to prevent his disciples from paving otf the tjtatc debts in this country hv also cultivating eggs, or even squashes I This is the great panacea that must eventually save the country from the disgrace of repudiation. The Krie Railroad niny he completed in n year, simply by the cultivation ol eggs along the line, under the new system of Association and Attractive Industry. We begin to think that Fouricrisin is a hit of the greatest di?eovery of the nge. Go ahead. Ctucft ction ok New York Newspapers tn Athaw.? We have he?n informed by Mr. Jones, o!

We have often?and who has not?read of similar outrages charged upon the high functionaries of the Catholic ' hur. h in all ages ofits history, and u e have believed them, if at all, to be exaggerated and higly colored statement*, prompted;lu main instances, perhaps, fcy the jealousies of opposing sect*. But ill this instance, our belief has been taken as it were by storm, the evideuce produced u|s>n the examination being of such a nature as to compel us to the conviction of the entire truth of the charge. Other, and serious complaints, we understand, have been made ugaiuat Mr. Weiu/.apdein, the person alluded to above, but with these we have nothing to do ; such an outrage, committed by a father confessor w ithin the very w alls of his Church, upon a weak and confiding penitent kneeling before him, could not be increased in horror by any additional charge. It may not be proper for us, and we shall not attempt, to express the indignation ue feel in common with the wholecominuuity. If the bail givCn by the detendant be sufficient to insure his attendance at the next term of ourCircuit Court, (which, however, raanv of out best riti/.ens are disposed to doubt.) the charge will undergo ajiidicial investigation, and we should not as journalists attempt to prejudice public opinion in advance. Our only object shall he to give a fair statement of the case and "the evidence, to far ns it went, already public in our own community. Late on Friday last, our citizens were astounded with he intelligence this' the Catholic Priest, resident huVe, hud been arreted upon the charge of committing an act if violence of the niwst revolting character upon a femnlt Tiiiit'iti, ui<- n ur ui .in , i-ivniiiuii, ti 1114111% lespeeiauie German, and herself of a good family and well rejected?young, hun I some, and but recently married? a hib'at the confessional for the purpose of ohlaiuing absolution lor her sins. The news spread like a conflagration, and immediately ujion the prisoner appearing at the Magistrate's nttice, it was hctieged by such a concourse of people, that his honor was compelled to adjourn to the Court House, which also was soon found incapable of containing the highly excited crowd that poured into it. Nothing however w as douo w ith the case on this evening ; the counsel for the defendant moving for a postponement until morning, stating their intention to ask for a change of venue on the ground that the Magistrate, before whom the process* had been returned, was a Minister of a I' Church. The Magistrate required bail in the sum ot $1100, which was readily given, and the case u Ijourned until0 o'clock the next morning, when'a change of venue was granted, and tlie cause referred to the decision of Squire How ley at 15' o'clock Monday ir.orning, andtho bail increased to $-2000. On Monday the crowd was greater than ever, having been swrllcJ by numbers of Irish and German Catholics and others, from the country. Indeed, such was the press into tho court-house that fears were entertained that the wcignt would crush its walls, and a number of our more prudent citi/.cus on this account withdrew. A more highly excited state of fueling was also plainly visible, although perfect order was maintained. "The Court, Squires Rowley nnd M,lls hiving taken their seats, the prisoner appeared attended by hiscottuscl. Messrs. Jones' of this place, and Mr Thtmas'a member ol thebar, and of the Catholic Church, from Vincennes. The Hev. Mr. Shaw, a Catholic priest from Vincennes, was also in attendance. Thcouly witnesses produced by the prosecution were the lady u)ion whom the outrage was committed and her husband, and upon motion of tlie defendant's counsel, the Court ordered tnat all the witnesses on either side should w ithdraw from the room except the one who should be under examination. The prisoner's counsel also requested that the female witness might he sworn according to the forms of the Cutholic Church as used in the country from which she comes, to which request the lady promptly acceded, stating through her counsel that she had no wish to bo flvvorri in nnv nfhor tviiv. A rmnfti* /Mi#? nn?? used nt the church wo believe,) was consequently brought in, and place! between two lighted candles, and the lady standing in this presence was (through an interpreter) iworu to speak " the truth, the whole truth, nnd nothing but the truth." We have heard the court cousured by some of our citizens for permitting what they looked upon as an attempt to intimidate the witness, but we see no good objection to the adoption of that form of oath in every instance which is most binding upon the concience of the witness. Indeed such is the requirement of the law. But it this form w as made use of fur the purpose of intimidation. which we do not believe, it certainly failed most signally to ettect it, for we venture to assert that there was not a single unprejudiced individual who heard her testimony nnd saw her manner that was not convinced that she sjioke not one word more or less than the truth. Mr. Schmull was also sworn, and iu pursuance of the order of the court withdrew from the room, his wife being ot course the first witness to be examined. We took lull notes of the testimony, but as it was delivered through an interpreter it is necessarily too prolix (besides being otherwise objectionable) for our columns ; we shall therefore noi attempt to give it either in the language or order in which it fell from the witness. Her simple story was in substance, and as near as we can give her language, as follows:?She is n native of Rhinisii Bavaria, where she lived until she w as about 19, when she removed to the United States, with her father and the rest of his family. She will bo 91 years old on the I Ith of June next. Her parents, as well as her brothers and sisters, nre all Roman Catholics, and as such she was christened and educated ?all the education she ever received having been in a Catholic School, to which she went three years to prepare herself for h- r confirmation. She was married to ?lr. Kchinall on last New Year's day, eight days before which time she had gone to confession, and did not go again until Wednesday, when, having previously in formed her hus'oan . of her intention, she went to get her sins forgiven. Whrn she entered the Church, which was between live and six o'clock in the evening, some other person was iu the confessional, nnd she waited till ihat person went away, perhaps three quarters of an hour, when, there being no other person in the Church, she went into the confessional. (This, ns the witness described it, is a sort of lio.x, open at the side, and divided into two apartments, each large enough to contain only on? person, in one of which the priest sits, nnd in the other the penitent kneels, upon a stool, the communication between them beinc through i window nt lattice work in the partition.) Iluvinir con f.-ssed her linn to the Priest, he imfKised n penance u|>on her before she undertook which she wanted to pray, as ii tlie custom of her country, hut she could not pray. The prie?t then nuked her if she believed in being married by n Squire, nnd followed this question with others of the most lewd and indecent nature relative to her conjugal iutercourse. (At this time it was so dark in the rhureh sho could scarcely see to read her prayer.) These questions sho for some time refused to answ cr, but he insisted upon them in such n rude manner that she became frightened and cold and at length did answer them. He then told her that these questions did not belong to her confession, and that she must not tell her husbanu. While she was thus kneeling before him attempting to repeat the prayer which he ha 1 set before her as a penance, as well as the fright she was in would permit her, the Priest came out >f his !?>x, an I sei7ing her by the right arm, which was text to the door of th" confe -sinnal, dragged her out of her hin, an I then taking holJ of her with both arms around ter waist threw her upon the floor. In throwing her he truck h-rback against some hard substance and hurt her . erv severely. She tit I not hear the Priest leave his box, tor knew that he was coming until he took hold of her. *he was so cold anil stiff"that he might have killed her and die could not have helped herself. The witness then describe 1 the liberties which the priest took with her while n the ground, and replied to several very pointI questions in such a manner as to exclude all doubt at to Ins success in his fiendish attempt to violate her person. After he had accomplished his horrible purpose, he raised her up, placed her upon a tieneh and sprinkled her face ; when she had sat there some little tine, the began to revive, and exclaimed, "Oh, God ' what have you done with me I Ho would not make her any answer, but asked her it she recollected the penance . she replied she did not?aha recollected something about it, but not w hat it w as. lie then gave her the penance, and hade her to prav i*. When dismissed she still felt sick ami faint, and staggered as she left the church The open air refreshed her and she felt better when she reached homo. She found her husband leaning against the fence, who asked her w hy she had staid so long, but she not knowing what answer to make, evaded the qutst;?., -A-.... ...u ? ..... .1 ?...- .- - ii liJ ...

She continuing to be distressed. and crying during tlie night, he again wanted to know what waa the matter, and towards morning she told him a part of tier story, and said ?ho wanted to go ami lake sacrament, whan she would | tell him all. She thought that the was w orthy to take sarrament now that her sins were forgiven, and that as it was Ascension day, it w as her dutv to do so. She did take sacrament, an I u|>on her return, disclosed the whole matter to her husband. He was w as greatly affected, Mnd threatened to take a pistol and kill the Priest, but she begged him not to do so, and made him promise that he would not ; he then said that he would go and see the Priest that evening, but 'he prevailed upon him to wait till morning, when she told him he would he more likely to see him. In the morning (Friday) Mr. Sehmall went and brought the Tricst to the house, hut she WO* in lied sick, and had so exhausted herself with crying, that she could not understand what was said, hut her husband could tell. Mr. S. asked her while she was in bed and the Priest present, if he had done as she had told him. and she replied " yes," hut did not know w hat remark the Priest made to tliii; her husband knew. (It was to detail this ctMWsatios, that Mr. S. w as sworn as a witness.) I lie examination in rhiethnd progressed thus far when the prisoner's C ounsel having asked a moment's time for consultation.

The court theroujion, intimating that no further testimony on the part of the prosecution would he necessary, and the only question would be at to the amount of hail ordered the prisoner into custody of the officers, nod adjourned until .'t o'clock P. M. tit Squire How ley's office, when they said the rimount of bail would be fixed. At the appointed hour the people again assembled in great numbers. The streets were thronged with them The hail it was understood, ha I hern lixrd at tf.4000, hut owing to tier withdrawal of the gentlemen who were uliout to sii-n the liond?in consequence ol the imprudent threats of Hchmnll, sufficient security was obtained with much difficulty. And when the bond was at length filled, the crowd o"tside having caught up the rumor that recognitors had been ucceptedwho were not rcs|>onsihletnen, the excitement was raised to an intense degree, and it was feared if the prisoner should be discharged he would he sei/ed by the mob, and dealt with as their passions might dictate, lie was, however, brought out under the protection of the officers and conducted up tliu street, the entire crowd following at his heels. Just tut he had effected his escape into the house w here he resides, some drunken man in the crow d stirred up a quarrel with one of his Irish supporters; an immediate skirmish ensued, in which some three or four Irish shilullns were found too hard for as many Herman heads. A shower of brickbats and other missiles were thrown at the Irishmen lint w ith little effect. It is said that the Priest passed immediately through the house, and made his escape from town in a wagon previously provided for the occasion. It w as fortunate for all parties that hr did so. Had lie fallen into the hands of the tnob the most fearful consequenecs must have ensued. And that he did not?'hat he w as not seized even while under the protection of the law, is a fact, in our opinion. highlv creditable to those of our citizens w h.t busied themselves in efforts to keep down the excitomcut Bnil prevent violence, (lad this affair occurred in any city in , the Union, his life would hare follen a certain sacrifice to his crime. For surely never was there an atrocity in j which all the circumstances combined to arouse the indignation and vengeance of a people, as did the circumstnnres of this case. Fears have been expressed that the hail is not suffl- < cient to secure the appearance of the accused to answer 'he charge, lint these apprehensions we trust are ground. 1 less. Although it might perhaps be difficult to collect the , whole amount of the bond in case of a default, yet we have evcrv confidence that it is honestly the determination 1 of the leading members of the Catholic Church, that the i accused shall not escape the just guilty. They are men of too much character and have too high a respect for themselves and their Church, to la> I themselves, and if liable to the charge of screening sueii , an offender from the vengeance of tlte law. We believe that the Church will make it its business to sec that he is ' forthcoming on the day of trial. Ended Alike.?The great Rhode Island revolution and the mighty Congressional duel.

We are sorry to see hiin lcavr a path iii which tie has walked so respectably. It is too late in the Jay tor him 10 begin an academical education, and to become a master of the human figure, the mysteries of which have eluded the skill of most of those w ho have made it the study of a life. This picture, however, like every thing else that Mr. O. attempts, is not without a high degree of merit. Does any one know Mr. Brown 1 So. 2.?Marriage or Pocahontas.? J. R ? 5uch is the unpretending introduction of this pic:ure?a work of too much iinj>ortance to be passed >ver without special and very critical examination ; differing, as it does, from the style of every body Isc, and possessing some of the elements of art most unattainable by study and practice. The Historical las always ranked as the highest walk of art, and o succeed in it in any respectable degree, the pos*erf ion of extraordinary capabilities is reouired?unless the artist take up the trail and follow in the path of some one who has gone before hint; but when we behold "the original thought, the graceful feeling of a mind imbued with the perception of the beautiful, and expression of its conceptions in compositions appropriate, as well ns becomingly Heated with regard to the design and color," ami wc may add to the quotation, composition and expression, we may be assured that that painter can command success. To our mind the composition of this picture is yery masterly? the groups are well arranged, thrown into separate ones, and yet so us to form an unbroken whole?the masses of light and shadow are broad,well distributed.and in proper balance; so much so as not to impress themselves imon the notice of the observer, as artifices at all. The drawing is good?the figures are thrown into every variety of appropriate attitude, with a graceful ease, and without one particle of theatrical position or action. The coloring we cannot praise?it is deficient in force and contrast; that is to say, it is too harmonious for so large a picture; and "whether this defeet has sprung out of a desire for the attainment of a principle, or from a delicate sense of the harmonious, it is unquestionably injurious?we make allowance of course for the unmitigated abomination of the white horse with blue legs that is walloping over r d ground with blue shadows, placed like the small pox by the side of unsuspecting health? injuring it hv contrast, and making this lameness nore palpable. By some contrariety of judgment, bis picture, though occupying a good place, is injuiicioualy hung; we want to examine features where nind is written, and expression sits: but if we go dose to it a glare interposes, and confines us to the dew of a part onlv ; if we go across the room, hough we can see the whole with the naked eye, i>r uccu a iciescu^r iu cwaimnc inc pans. To the composition and drawing; of this picture, .vc may add another f|uality : it is fraught with expression. The story is richly told, and is enibclished with a hundred little digressions and pleasing tpisodes. In the h-ft hand comer sits? a group, where i soldier is explaining to the Indians the manner of lerforming the ceremony ol marriage ntnnig the English. Here in feature and uction every figure tanks; a tine looking young squaw, attentive to the iescription, is laying down the shield, in whose xdished snrfaee she has been admiring her own good looks ; and the warriors are absorbed in grave attention. Immediately overhead, upon the scaffold, is another group of Indians, who show hy thsir different expression the kind of dread so natural in such a position; hut the mingling ? wonder and caution, as expressed in the look of i hoy, as he holds tip his linger to enjoin stillpei... while for a moment he ventures to look down, is inimitable ; it is one of those simple sparks of truth occasional!) struck from nature by Boz. We might go on, and fell of fifty things of like interest?the Indians prying into the mystery of the book?the teased child clinging to its mother?the courtships, and every thing to the end of the picture. We have said nothing of the principal personages?they must speak for themselves ; we have devoted too much time to one work, and must pass on, observing, that though this picture excites little attention from its quietness of tone, it developes incident and thought continually.

Mr. Sn tuakd, President i?o tun., who had been quite unwell for several week* past, is now seriously ill, and Mr. White, of Indiana, is in the Chair to-dav. Mr. Southurd's continued sickness renders it necessary for tlx* Senute to elect another presiding officer. In the present state of parties, ii i.-1 difficult to say upon whom the choice will full. Mr. Bayard is a.- well qualified as any man in the rfenute, except Mr. King, (who belongs to the minority, and cannot, of course, be chosen,) and may very likely he selected. Among the memorials this morning, was one by Mr. Evans, from citizens of Muine, praying that the revenue bill, recommended by the Secretary of the Treasury, might be passed without alteration. Mr. Tai r.mnoE gave notice that when the resolution of Mr. Allen, in relation to Rhode Island, should come up again, he should offer an amendment which lie held in his hand. His amendment is us follows: Resolved, That, by the Constitution, the United States are hound not only to guarantee to every Sta'.e in theUnion a republican fona of government, but also to protect each one of them against invasion : and, upon proper application, against domestic violence. Resolved, That the form of government with which a State came into the Union, and liar been recognised and rejiresenteu as a member ol the Union, must be tween ana regarded cs republican ; and that such State ii entitled to all that protection against inva?ion and domestic violence, which is pledged bv the Constitution of the United States. Resolved, That tne Government of a State so coming into and recognised as a member of the Union, can only be changed or superseded, consistently with the principles of our American republics, when it is done in pursuance of, and in the mode proscribed by, the laws ol such State; and that any attempt by force to overthrow that government is disorderly and'revolutionary, tending to auarcliv and bloodshed, 'and, in the end, to tlie destruction of public liberty ; and is such a domestic violence as entitles that State, by her Legislature (or the Executive, when the Legislature cannot be convened), to apply for, and obtain from, the United States protection against the same. Resolved, That tliu application made by the Legislature of Rhode Island, one of the " Old Thirteen," to the President of the United States, for protection against domestic violence, was within the meaning and terms of the Constitution ; and that it was the duty ol the President to take such preparatory steps as a wise*and prudent forecast demanded, and to adopt such efficient measures as are contemplated by the constitution, and the laws made in pursuance of it, for giving 6uch protection. On motion of .Mr. Tallikadge, the original resolutions of Mr. Allen, and those of Mr. Tullmadge, were ordered to be printed. Mr. King moved to take up his resolution fixing a time for adjournment, and the motion was rejected by a strict party vole?ayes 17, noes 20.

"What strange infatuati >n po a sses eertain witlings in your city ! They are constantly writing annonymous letters to men high in office here, abusing gentlemen of whom they are enemies.

Are they so ignorant as nyt to know, that a man. however obscure or insignificant, can never be injured by anonymous slander! The nature of the attack pre-supposes cowardice as well as malignity, and the individual who adopts this mode of warfare is either knave or fool, or possibly he may unitejthe properties ol both. Knave, he certainly is,oi he would not strike at a man who huH no meansof returning the blow : and fool he must be, or he would see the absurdity of attempting to prejudice a nian ol intelligence and discernment against any one by charges or insinuations, without proof or a name to sustain them.

In the Court of Errors an expense of ?34o 69 coats was incurred, which Barry was ordered to pay, but he answered the counsel that he mljjht get his money out of some old clothes if lie could. This Barry denies, asserting that his reply was "wouldn't you like to get it." Mr. Mercein denies having detained his daughter, or her child, against their will, hut if they seek from him a father's protec tion, he feels bound to afford it. Mrs. Barry also presented an affidavit, in w hisli she states that she has reason to believe that her husband is not so ntixions to have the child as to compel her to live with him.

The prc.iso is ax follows:? " Provided, That, till otherw ise ordered by Congress, no part of this or uuy futureor existing appropriation shall be applied to the payment of any othcer in the navy appointed after this date, beyond the number in eaeh grade on the 1st day of January, 1S41 ; and that the exees* now in the service beyond that number shall be reduced as last us deaths, resignations, and promotions, will permit." If this amendment pusses into a law, it will take five years to bring the several grades down to the number on the 1st of January, 1841. The establishment of the home squadron, and the increuse of promotions and appointments, rendered necessary by the wants of the service, have swelled every grade greatly since that period. The excess in the service hi the ^different guides is as follows:? Jan. 1, lull. Prutnt Hint. Exceit.

We shall see how the people will be pleased with the parsimony of their representatives. If Congress do not intend to provide money for the wants of the Government, they may as well abolish the army and navy; but this striking by indirection is not exactly the thing. Baltimore. [Correspondence of the Herald.] BALTiMour, May 24,18-1!. Mn. Editor At last the great military encampment ha* come to a close, Yestorday, after afreview, by the Commander in Chief, Gen. Stuart, the tent* wore struck, and preparations made to take up the line of march, each for their respective homes. The Companies being all drawn ?p in line, Mr. Miudle, aid to Gen. Stuart, rode forward and prjclaimei the decision in refereuce to tha splendid "prize flag." It was awarded to the Maryland Cadets, of this city, commanded by Capt. Ropes, one of the Companies, which if you remember, I previously predicted would be most likely to win. The Cadets is unquest ionablyfa well drillod,and soldier-like corps,capable of undergoing the severest scrutiny, as well as camp duty, but the Lancaiterf Kinsibles, the Independent Blues, andithe Independent Greys, besides several others, gave them a hard rub. Indeed it was with difficulty that those appointed to de Side could satisfy their own mind* in coming to a concluelusion. Gen. Stuart presented the flag himself, and accompanied its presentation with a lew very brief hut appropriate remarks. When it was unfurled to the breeze and dedicated to liberty by kissing the newliorn light of heaven, our heroes marched back again to the post from whence thev hod been called for the occasion of its presentation, with feelings more glorious than imagination can paint. At 12 o'clock the troop* reached this citv, headed by the comninnder-in-chief, and ware dismissed. What is^rather strange, though much of the time it was inclement, not h single soldier had to desert hit pott in consequence of sickness. In my letter of the 21st, I stated that "Lady Canton" had won at the Kendall race coarse on the day precious, this was an accidental mistake, Jt was "Brown Stout" that took the purse. In reference to the Stanley and Wise affair, it was stated in the challenge sent by the" former and accepted by the latter, that the jostling of his horse against Wise, on the day they were riding out to the races, was purely accidental. iThis.ngreealtlp to the conceptions of W.

Slockt?Rhode UlanA Meeting, The Tyler movement in this city is growing more formidable than some per ions affect to believe. There was another preparatory meeting last nignt, which numbered about twice as many as at the first m~eting held. One of the objects of the movers in thii business is to overthrow the Clay interest in tha city authorities. It is alleged that the whig influence of the city is used against the President and in favor of Mr. Clay, and as these whig officers were elected .by the votes of the friends of " Tyler loo," they mean not to enrourage such a perversion of their trust any longer. Krom appearances TheseTyler men will be able to number et least a thousand votes, which, an/sAK^Sni* ? tKn 1 oct olool inn roltirna ttrill nlnrf fKn flov whig* out, if they do nothing more.

Considerable preparations are going forward in conueetionVvith ^the launch of the frigate Itaritan. Several steamboats and the whole of the sailing craft will occupy positions in the stream, affording a favorable view to passengers at a consideration. The launch is expected to he one of the handsomest ever made from this yard, from the fact that the v essel passes a mncli greater distance U|H)n her ways. There wss yesterday a regular battle on the public parade ground, near the'prison, between a troop or Germans and a party of citizens, the latter of whom considered hcmselves aggrieved by some of the movements of the gentlemen on horse. The way in which the soldiers were pelted by clubs and stones, was a caution, They verceoon driven from the ground, nnd some of them considerably injured. Some of the citizens, too, received severe sword cuts. The whole was moat disgraceful, and s wholly attributable to the conduct of the men in uniform. The business in stocks has been light to-day, at prices the same ns yesterday. A rather dry meeting of the sympathisers of Rhode Island was held last night. The movement to take depositions into alleged abuse* against our Post Master, I predict will end all in smoke.
