John Haines wii indicted January 1 Jth 17**0, for shoot- . ing at three Bow street ufliceis, who, in consequence of | se? eral robberies having been committed near Hounslow | were employed to soour that neighborhood. They w ere I attacked in .t post chaise in the evening of the 10th of No- j vember. by two person* on horseba-k. one of whom - fa- | Honed himself at the head of the horse*, and the other ; rem o the *i,te of the chaise One of the officer. sf-ited that the night was dark, bat that front the flash of the pi'- ; to! ho could distinctly see that it was a dark brown horse, between thirteen ami fourteen hands high, of a very trmarkable shape, having u square head and thirk shoulders, and su -ii that he could select him out of fitly hor I---!-, an I that ho ha.) seen the horse since at a stable in Long A-re. He also pet reived by the same flash of light that the person at the si ie glass ha l on a rough shag brown great-coat. The in in was convicted To be sure the officer tnav h ive been mistaken; but thoee judges believed ln'ac g;eat law of nature, mat .->0 peculiar is tic expression ot each person's countenance; that it may he identified, even though only seen tor a moment, and by the flash ot a pistol Id be sure you have had a man on the stand, Mr Daniel Marley, the furniture lealer in Ann street in this city, who i-s-ii I to reseiiihle tiie pri.-oner very strongly. And to he tr , I innst i-ay there iru$ a very great general res "mbi.nice h-tween that gentleman and the prisoner, particularly in the expression of the face. Tnen there was Capt. Sherman introduced for the s.tai purpose, hut he did not resemble hiinso much ,.s .Mr M irl -y. Then, again, Powell was said to re ii'de him?one witness swore that he was very ,u -ii lise him?whil t anther swears that lie was not at all like him Now, then, to be sure it is for 11s to : ly whether his countenance is of that general nature that it could easily he mistaken for that of ,10th' r?for that of Capt. Sherman, or Powell, or lr. .Marley; of which latter gentleman, a provert was made, as it is termed in law. Ana you must 1 1 take into consideration that these gentlemen v. -re not in Baltimore at the time mentioned. An t this shown and proved, the number of exceptions to the general rule is diminished. .Now, these nine persons, gentlemen, who swear to the personal identity of Edwards were persons whose hehits of observation and peculiar duties led til"ill to ev.iniinp th*? human nnurif t?nanj*/? in mutters of business They are accustomed to examine minutely th handwriting of men, and their feature-, and their powers of perception are verv strong?far different from the |>ei>ori wiio is addressing, whose powers of perception are not very strong? ilts'-nf minded?and so forth. But we have instance; ot Bow street officers and French police offi - ?rs, like Vidocu, who can take in a person's f-riturr- it i .-ingle glance. So of these letters and brokers? <n 1 it is a sound maxim of law that every ni in i- to be trusted in his office. Then there is the i iv, and the testimony of boy s I h Id, if honest, is i.> be relic I ougreatly. 1 consider they are safely to l?e tru?t"d in all th it relates to observation. It is a time of life when the mind is bright, the powers of observation vivid?and tlr-ir senses arc sharpened and noute/for all they learn then isbv observation. And 1 would trust a great d< ll to a boy if he's hnne t in telling nv of any thine that he saw or obTV"d. Well, all these nine persons had their attention called tornldwell frmn -ome particular circuru tance Jamison had it called to hint from the fuel that he paid him $10,0U0 ; and tliis was not a casual nieetoicliki meeting a man in an omnibus, where you had tit n < 'sonl glance of him, under circumstances .-it would b* dangerous to them if they erred, and their knowledge of identity is therefore the more to h relied upon. These nine persons swear in all to s"eing htm twenty-one times. The person upon whose testimony I would place the least reliance is that < f the inkeeper at Richmond, merely from the (act that hi i attention was not awakened byanycir. uTistuarrs of distrust. We have, however, in addition to .11 this, the testimony of one who knew him, who had seen hi in before, and could not have i<een mistaken. Mr. F.lder swears to seeing him at Baltimore at that dale. It has lieen remarked for litn IpIiHiOii tKnt Vxic? nmmoi'ii .... ,,V' Itta Ml niui* r? a- ?il ICiinl H IIIIIC singular. But in it so 1 Is it the testimony of aman who had .1 desire to injure .Monroe Edwards without cause ! or is it not rather that of a man leading a retired and studious life?drawn forth from the academic cloisters, with his mind pure?knowing little of the world?timid and retiring, who swears before Cod?scrupulous in giving his testimony? ] over-anxious in that respect as we should consider it. perhaps, in this city of Custom House oaths, and j wholesale frauds.

As this is an alarminz fact that there has i( !? ii no testimony introduced of thi< character, i 1" iv this point to your discrimination and " sober judgritcnta to decide upon. There are two J a " f rcgr ter? in this city, in which we find his name In one the Waverley ? it is inserted at the bottom* This is not without precedent?but it is unusual. The other is the Northern Hotel.? Here the nume, if forged, had of necessity to be ,dared by the side of some other name, beaiise the page was filled up on that day Hut it is very remarkable, and I have not heard it commented np11, that there should be a deep stain on this part oi the book over this particular name of Lid wards (it was u slain n| tobacco imce),so as to make it difficult tojlecypher, uiid il there has been an erasure, it is difficult to detect it. Now, then, where ts Mr. Belcher 1 He is not Isidore, that's certain. He is a friend of Edwards's, who we are told visited hint in Philadelphia. We find that Beleher paid his bill the next morning, and that Edwards did not, unlea.? that was lumped in with the $11, entered as from the bar money. There are two other points connected with the case, which I shall briefly comment upon, and with them dismiss the ease. T allude to the Imif in which the gold was found, and the newspaper which was wrapped round the gold. Young Hanson swears that he gave Monroe Edwards a hag for the gold, and a bag is found in his possession that bears his handywork, which he recognizes as well as could be expected. Now it is (xtssible that Monroe Edwards when he was in Baltimore afterwards did get a bag for his gold, hut here is found a hag?said to be the very hag given to him by this hoy. Again there is the piece ol paiicr?we find wrapped round the gold a piece of the Baltimore American, of the date the money was obtained from the hank. [Here Price reminded him that another paper of a previous date was found there ] True, it was so. This, 1 admit, was a very slight circumstance; but still in England a man was hung upon evidence equally slight. 1 read from Wills:? At the Stafford summer assizes 1836, John Moantford was convicted of un attempt to murder, by sending to the prosecutor on the 11th of May, preceding a parcel consisting of a tin case, which contained several |X)unds of gunpowder, so packed as to explode by the ignition of detonating powder, inclosed between two pieces of paper, connected with a match fastened to the bottom and to the lid of the box. It was a conclusive circumstance against the prisoner that underneath the outer covering of brown paper, in which the case mid comhustible matter had been enclosed, was found a portion ol' the Lends Intelligencer of the 6th of July, 1H32, the remaining jiortion of that ideutical paper having been found in the prisoner's house. Ah! here I ndmit in that part of it there was a material difference in this cane. Now, he might have got that paper in New York or Philadelphia ; hut he also might have got it in Baltimore on the 31st of August, when Hanson swears he saw him. It is one slight circumstance of many, which though individually weak, when taken together are conjointly verv strong. This, gentlemen, 1 believe, embraces the whole case. I fear that I have tirea your patience. I have witnessed your conduct during the trial o( this, und observed it with respect. I hope you will cauvrisa this thing calmly, and 1 do hope at least that you will ngree, that we may at least be spared the repetition o? this task so toilsome to the court, so wearying to jurors and witnesses, so expensive to the county, and so injurious to the pure administration of justice. If you have a doubt on the subject givp the prisoner the benefit of it But this doubt must be. a reasonable doubt. You must remember tliat out of the exact science? or what cannot be reduced to mathematical calculation, there must always he some?and in some cases strong doubts. Anrf in all circumstances, even in that which the logicians call violent presumption, flier/ must he doubt; as when a person is fouiia bjseding to death, and another person is found running awav from the room with a drawn sword, all bloody, the violent presumption is that he must be die murderer, yet the reverse has been proved to be true. There is no necessity shown to exist in all this. But the true meaning is, that when you hold in your hands the golden scales?if you see which scale preponderates, or if you doubt whether it preponderates one way or the other, that is a doubt in m the meaning of the law?any other is not a doubt. And if after all, tha calm deliberation which you are able to give this case, you find that yen cannot agree to convict the prisoner, ilien acquit him! This is iruly a great case. It is an extraordinary case. It is a case which will live in the annals of crime, whatever be the result oi your verdict. If is a ease which I look at with great concern, not only for the sensation which it las creniea 1.1 ine community, oih ior uie magni ude of the offence, and the daring, skill, and conuunmate art with which the whole fraud has been >erneirafp(l. I wish to have justice pure, and 1 wish it tlie same time to have] it firm j because, unless it s firm, it cannot he pure. Examine the whole sub -ct carefully, coolly, examine it anxiously and fuirv?and at the same time examine it humanely live the prisoner the full benefit of any reasonable ionbt yon may entertain, but do not be frightened it the shadow of a doubt. Do your duty firmly? lonorably between the prisoner, his country, and miir trod. At tin conclusion of this charge the audience | irokeout into loud applause, which was suppressed. Mr. Kmniett then took one slight exception. Mr. Coachmen's doctor was in attendance and I irdcred to remain in attendance on the jury room. | i. juror asked if they would'nt agree whether Coaclinon would be allowed to go home. The Judge said if he w^ dangerously ill in the night, he would l iseharge them on that account, but otherwise they :ould not be allowed to separate. Edwards was smiling anil talking as unconcerned is possible when the jury retired at ten minutes to t'elock. Several Indies remained in _C?urt long after the ury left, to get a Rood look at Upl.

It was averred that the laintiff had not shown that he was a member ol te (.'ountv Medical Society. The evidence, or iplotna, of his having been so, was lost. The uestion to be decided was, whether the plaintill as bound to show, or the defendant to disprove, ie plaintiff's authority for practising. The Court Knight the latter. As to interest, if a debtor nelects to pay his doctor's bill, interest is chargeable rem the time it is rendered.

Edwards, This extraordinary, and wearying, and exciting triul has at length been brought to u The Court was crowded all day and over a hundred ladies of all ages, and of all styles of beauty were there. Col Edwards was the most happy looking und unconcerned creature in the whole room. Many distinguished lawyers and legislators were present: and one very, very lovely young girl sat at the right end of the bench, but took no part in the deliberations except with her eyes. Mr. Whiting concluded his very able speech by half past 2. He spoke in all six hours. The Jury then went to dine at Barton's?so did the prisoner, walking through the purk as free as air?almost.? At four they all returned, when Judge Kent delivered hia charge, which occupied one hour und fortytwo tnintes, and which was dead against the prisoner. The jury then retired a few minutes, appa 11 o'clock.?The Court kept open till this hour. Judge Kent and the Aldermen went down into the tea-room, and there refreshed themselves for less than an hour. They have juet sent to the jury to know if they had agreed, or were likely to agree. The jury sent word back that they hud not agreed? they could not agree?and there was no possibility of their agreeing. The Court then adjourned to 10 o'clock on Tuesday morning, leaving word with the officers that if the jury should come to an agreement during the night, that the Court should he sent for. 12 o'clock.?The jury are still out. They have been out 6 hours. No agreement yet. One o'Clock.?The jury have not yet agreed, and one ortwo sf the fat men getting very sleepy. A good deal of angry discussion going on. Half past one o'clock.?Still no verdict; the jury who were tolerably noisy and argumentative about 7 and 8 o'clock, have now settled down into a toleruble calm; still looking angry and black at each other. Two o'clock.?No verdict. One of the jurors asked for a glass of water; two or three asleep and snoring. Monroe Edwards in his cell, dreaming of lands in Texas, and slaves in Martinique, but not snoring. He's too accomplished for that. No refreshment allowed the fjury except a little tea and bread and butter to the sick man, John C. Coachmon. Officers kicking their heels against each other, and smoking a segar.

The " New Era," speaking for the ultra democrats, has changed hands?and is now conducted by Mr. We-forget-his-name, who was the Secretary of the Tyler meeting held at Washington Ilall. It comes out for Mr. Bouck for Governor, and Mayor Morris for Lieutenant. It is ultra locofoeo, and supposed to he rnther in favor of Van Iluren for the next Presidency. Major Hopkins of the Pewter Mug, who gives a generous asylum to Governor Dorr and that sword, has the financial control of the " Era," and Jared W. Bell, printer, manages the concern in his name. Levi D. Slamm, who has left the " Era," intends to start a two cent cash paper in the old office of the Snn, corner of spruce und Nassau ; another person, with lots of money, will join him. They intend to publish a good newspa|>er?democratic in politics ?but whether they will go for Van Burcn, Cass, or Tyler, for next President, we know not. Judge Noah, George P. Morris, N. P. Willis, ind Fay as a foreign correspondent, with others hat wc have heard of, but who are of little account, ire preparing to start a new cash two cent paper, to >e printed by Moses Y. Beach of the Sun, who has tow removed to a respectable neighborhood, oppo<ite the Herald office in Fulton street. Thisconccrn ntends to go for Captain Tyler first, and probably Henry Clay aftcrwurds. This will be a very amus ng concern. Moses, however, will take care of his nd of the business?he will take his pay out of the >rocceds each week?and the balance, after defrayng all expenses, will be divided among Judge Noah ind his compatriots. They expect to divide &58.67J *ach week to each editor.

Bennett, who :s the master-spirit of the military and civil organi/.atiun. We tind the following singular piece of honor conferred on oureelf:? Honorary Degree?Ordered by the Chancellor and Regents ol the University of the City of Nauvoo, that the honorary degree of LL. D , be, and the saine hereby is conferred on James Gordon Bennett, Esq., Editor of the New-York Herald. Passed April 22d, A. D. 1812. JOHN C. BENNETT, Chancellor. Wm. Law, Registrar. I lenceforth let every one address us with our ii|>propriate title LL. D. and 110 mistake. The following is a bulletin of the Prophet, relative to the assassination of Gov. Boggs of Missouri: Nauvoo, 111. May 22, A. D. 1B42. Mr. Bakti.ett,? Dear Sift,?In your paper (the Quincy Whig) of the 21 si inst. you have done me manifest injustice in iincribiug to me a prediction of the demise of Lilhuru W. Boggs, Esq., Ex-Governor of Missouri, by violent hands. Boggs was a candidate tor the State Senate, and I presume, fell by the hand of a political opponent, with " his hands and face yet dripping with th* blood of murder;" hut he died not through my instrumentality. My hands arc clean und my heart pure, from the blood of all inen. 1 am tired of the misrepresentation, calumny and detraction, heaped upon me by wicked men ; and desire and claim, only those principles guaranteed to all men by the constitution and laws of the United States, and of Illinois. Will you do me the justice to publish this coiiiiiiiuiivtiiion, ana oottge Youre, resjitrctfully, .Ioski'H Smith. We advise Joe Smith to be quiet?his enemies and slanderers will make hiin a better prophet than he could hope to be made by any other process. Opposition was the making of Moses?of Mahomet?of Napoleon?of every great master spirit that has appeared in this dirty world below. With General Bennett (he very properly spells his name with two big T's) as his man-of-war and man of peace, he can get along cleverly, and will establish a mighty empire and a great people. Go ahead Joe. News from Texas.?Intelligence from Houston to the 1st inst., has been received. In consequence of the threatening aspect of the affairs between that country and Mexico, President Houston has ordered a special session of Congress. We take the following items from the pa|>ers :? The President has appointed Gen. M. Hunt acting inspector General ot the republic, with orders to organize the troops that are to be mustered into service. We understand the President intends to order out a certain pprtion of the troops of each county ot the republic, with the exception of the counties of Bexar,Goliad, Kefngio, Snn Patricio, and Travis If volunteers sufficient should not enlist, a draft will be made. Harris county will be required to furnish 236 infantry, nnd the other counties inpro[>ortion to their population. These things indicate that a storm is gathering, that will soon burst in terrible reality upon the devoted fields of Mexico. Flacco, a noted Lippan warrior, has lately received a commission, or rather a note, authorizing him ts command a company of Lipans. He now considers himself a Texian captain, and is highly proud of his new office. The armed brig Whartpn arrived at Galveston on the 26th May. She cruised along the Mexican const as far as Campeachy, and saw but one Mexican vessel, which she chased into Tuspan. Ajatest from venezttkla.?we have " El Venezohno," published at Caracas, to the 17th ult. By a decree of the Congress of Venezulano, the the ashes of the Liberator, tSimon Bolivar, would be taken (from Santa Martha to the Capitul of New (irenuda, and he will there receive, on a small scale, the honors paid to Napoleon in France. Two hundred emigrants have arrived at Laguira, from the Canary Islands. Facilities are afforded to these emigrants by the government. The notes of the National Bank at Laguira are at a tremendous discount. Six Lays Later from Brazil?The " Jornol do Conmiercio" to the 22d of April is received. No news. From Central America.?We have received the Bulize, ilon. (iuzetleof the 1 Itli ult. It appears therein that the claims of fdreat Britain against the Central American States, has been presided with some vigor, and the probability is that they will shortly be paid in full. No decided|movement had been made by Morazan. When last heard of he was passing the Fort of Realejo, and taking the direction of Coasta Rica. He had with him livee vessels, one armed with ten guns, and about HOO men, with all his old officers. They fa|>j>eared not to want for money, having bought largely from the vessels on the Coast, provisions, guns, arms, aud ammunition for cash, and offered money down for a French brig. End of the Florida War at Last.?We received ! _ 11 a j - * e i r -i intelligence yesieraay morning 01 inc ena 01 tne war in Florida in the shape of five additional murders, near the Ocilla. (>n the 31st ult. a party of red skins, numbering fifty warriors, attacked the house of Mr. Robinson, in Jefferson county, killed his mother and fourothers, and burnt his place. It issaid that a party of U. S. Troops were stationed within ten miles distance! The Catskiij. Mountains.?The most beautiful, pleasant, and sublime place under the blue heavens, is now open, and ready for the reception of visitors. Travellers on their way up the North River, for the Springs or the Falls, will always find it agreeable to stop at Catskill a day or two?particularly when the weather gets warm. West Point, we believe, is abandoned?and it is right; it never has been kept worth a button since Cozzens was there. Bt rnham's, Bi,oomin?dai.k.?Thischnrnungplaee is now in the full of flowers and beauty. The roses are In bloom?the hyacinths out?the tulips opened to heaven?the trees covered with green leaves? and all as rich as possible. A drive to Burnham's is truly delicious. GO- Niblo's.?Polichinel last evening was a decided hit, Gabriel electrified, and Miss and Mr. II. Wells delighted a crowded saloon. The scenery, by Lehr, is beautiful; the whole stage arrangements reflect high credit on the management. The never failing comic piece of M. Dechalumau is acted this evening, together w ith a French Vaudeville and Rope dancing. English Vaudeville to-morrow evening. The new piece again on Thursday. Morf. of the Earthquake.?The Natchez Free Trader of the 26th ult. says:?"Capl. Philhrick, of Wilkinson, informs us that on the 7th inst. the anniversary of the Jtreat tornado, some young men, fishing in the Buffalo, observed a great commotion in the water, and the current, to all anoearances, changed its course and ran up. J. B. Moore, who lives near the Homochitto, states that the same circumstances occurred on the same day on that river. To make the affair mors marvellous still, a highly respectable citizen of Baltimore, now here,snys that on the evening of the 7th lie put up at Kings, in Mudison couuty; that a patty of person* came to the tavern from Pearl river, and stated that the waters were violently agitated, and that the "river was runningua stream." A gentleman troni llohnes t'o., shortly afterwards rode up and stated that the same extraordinary disturba. < ? of the waters had ocrurred on Big Black. tl- r.ti. ..._i i # 11* . _ l* i iir.n iu iMPiiiini, |iiiniirnru in v union, imuisiunn, makes the following statement "There occurred in the streams of this itarish on the 1st of this inst. n very powerful ami violent agitation of the waters, for which we are at a loss to account. The day was unite clear, and the waters of most of our larger streams were discovered by many <>f our citixens, for several minutes, to roll from bank to bank, with such violence as at times to be thrown out a considerable distance on the land, and rendering the streams very muddy: occasionally the acitation caused the writers to rush from each hank to tlje centre of the stream with considerable force, and Mowing up to rome considerable height from the violence with which they came in contact. No oeiccptible movement or agitation of the earth was felt; we have not learned how far this "moving of 'he waters" extended, hut sneh are reall? the facts of the Phenomena which occurred in this Parish." f General Hctfloni.

He stated that owing to the diihcultv | ol obtaining witnesses, it was impossible to bring the j cause to trial, und with the consent ol Mr. Purroy, counsel for prosecution, a nolle/houijhi was entered. and the parties discharged.

Mr. West objected j ! to this disposition of the case, as he desired to bring ' | the case to trial. We understand that a prosecu- | i tion will be commenced immediately by Mr. West against Fowler, lor perjury, arid other charges in- ! eluded in the conurienceuient of the trial against him. The Grand .lury came into Court during the morning, presented several bills of indictment, and retired to resume their duties. An AsaatUt on a Woman.?Thomas W. Pitman, of 106 Essex street, was tried for an alleged assuult and battery on a German woman named Magdalene Miller, of'No. 5 Franklin street, but the jury decided that he was not guilty of the charge. Attuult on the Battery.?.lob Haskell, Esq., t-x-candidate for Mayor, took the book, and did i swear, that on the 9lh of July. two years ago, lie | was ussaulted on the Battery hy one Jacob, stir- ; named Somerdvke, who has, ana always will make j as much noise in the world, at any given time and | place, as the next man: and that said fomerdykc as well as a man named Granger, who was amoug the missing at the trial, did with malice intent and aforethough, endeavor to unhorse said Job on the Battery, while lie was in the act ol rendering due homage to one Col. Richard M. Johnson, formerly ! Vice-President of the United States, who hud arrived in this city on that day. That said Job would huvc been unhorsed hud it not been that he wat firmly seated in his saddle, and hud presence of mina left to raise his arms with un umbrella, and threaten to dash it through the skull of said Granger, which threat released him Irom the grasp of defendant, when he rode away not unhorseu but unharmed. The ex-candidate guve a glowing description of the attack, the conflict, and the rescue, horse and all, and the junr believing that no man should be assaulted while in the act of performing homage to one of our public functionaries, rendered a verdict of guilty against defendant, and as he was leaving the court room the polite and attentive clerk, Henry Vandervoort, Esq., said^44 Mr- Somerdyke, you will attend here again on Friday next, at 11 o'clock pre cisely, and you will please not to forget to remember." On Friday then, the sentence of the law will be imposed upon Jacob Somerdyke in a loud, distinct and positive manner, from which he will ever remember not to forget the penalty of committing an assault on the Buttery. Mayr he have a safe delivery, anil nil his numerous friends who will be there to see the result of this important and long delayed trial. So mote it be. Trial for Retiring Stolen Goods.?A woman named Mary Puck wood, of 112 Orange street, whs tried for receiving and offering to sell a gold watch, 'he property of William Lee, jr. of 50 Reed street, which had heen stolen, together with a chain from him on the 17th tilt by a girl named Catherine Connell, who resided in the family as a servant. It was proved that the watch was valued at $80, and that she offered to dispose of it toFredericklLevy of 78 Bowery, for $35, when he-stopped the article and took her place of residence Catherine Connell, the girl who stole the watch, testified that she was induced to commit the larceny from the request of her husband's aunt Elizabeth Geery. she being intoxicated at the time from linnor that had been given her while at the bouse of Geery. That after she had stolen the watch and delivered it to Mr. Gpery, -he was kept in her garret in a state of intoxication for several days, and until she was arrested. The prisoner was defended by counsellor Bates, but no ;*vidence having been produced as to|how she came in possession of said watch the jury found herguilty. Elizabeth Geery was 'hen tried for grand larceny on account of the participation that she had in the iffair. The same evid- nee was produced on the tart of Catherine Connell, but it was not sufficient to convict her of Grand Larceny. She was there ore acquitted, and the District Attorney asked that -he should he remanded on the evidence to nwuit an indictment for receiving stolen good- which being done, the court adjourned to Tuesday morning, at eleven o'clock. City Intelligence. ConsTKutmvK Larceny.?On the 12th of December last Mr. Stephen Hedges, of Hudson, in this State, placed a letter in the hands of Edward Hyatt, male of the eteamboat \Ve?tehe?r??, ?'?al i-t;*.-between this city and Hudson, addressed to Win. M. Brownson, of this city, and containing #50 in bank notes. The letter not having been received by Mr. Brownson, inquiry was made relative to it, when Hyatt stated that he had delivered it ta the bartender of the boat, named Gurdon Dixon. Mr. Hedges not being able to ascertain any satisfactory information as tojfhe disposal of the letter, obtained i warrant yesterday for the arrest of Dixon, when he was secured by olHcer Tajipan and arraigned for examination. He was accompanied by Hyatt, the mate of the steamboat, and at whose advice he refused to answer any questions put to him relative to the disposal of the letter or the money. Mr. Hyatt's officiousness or interference in thus preventing a fair -tatement of the circumstances attending the loss of this letter, which had been originally entrusted to his hands for safe keeping, reflects but little credit to his agency in the matter. Bail in the sum of $ti00 was procured by Hyatt for Dixon, as well as the money for the costs of commencement of the prosecution. The trial wiil take place at the next term of the Sessions. These persons are still engaged on board of the Westchester as mate and bar-tender. " Twenty Men Drowned."?We expect to be called upon every hour to write this caption relative to the man trap at the foot of West and Washington treets. Does Mr. Street Commissioner Ewing intend to have it closed or not 1 We wish to know. Another Corporation Suit.?A suit is about to be commenced against the Corporation for damages received by a gentleman, whose carriage was overturned by the piles of dirt that are located in Broadway, between Howard and Grand streets. These nuikflnrpi) hm'P rpmainprl tltorn fn* uronlro onil flm vision of the street inspectors of the 8th and 14th Wards have not been able to see them. We trust if damages are recovered, of which there is no doubt, the same may be ded icted Irom the salarif,: of the street inspectors of thest wards, and sail tr^on the members of the common council to take r<otP 0f it and proceed accordingly. Common Cocncil!?The Whig membe rs of 'he Common Cou icil met Inst evening in both Boards. The Aldermen adjourned to the 27t\i, there not being a quorum present. The Board of Aesistantstrans.lcted no busine>s of particular interest. A proposition was made by Assistant Alderman Atwill, of the 6th Ward, to have the public printing done hy contract, which was laid upon the table, and a petition was received from Isaac Edge to prepare Fireworks for the Corporation on the Fourth of July, which was referred to a committee. They thenadjotirned to the 27th inst.

AVc do not desire to he particularly mysterious in this matter. We are alluding to the setting srpart of times and seasons when all the groat world of our little corner of it, may meet upon neutral ground, without heart-burnings?such buntings of the heart only excepted. as are exceedingly apt to be kindled by the incendiary eyes one now and then encountersupon certain inflammatory Thursdays nt the garden of the Capitol, or similar Saturdays at i that of the Executive mansion. These conflagrations are beginning now in all their lury. The attempts against divers habitations here, successful its they are?not only in despoiling many a blaine. less citizens?but in eliciting comfortable supers and potations for amateur patrolos, are fools to the results of these semi weekly promenades. Oh, Mrs. Rockendortf, how many an ice crtani has been sold in that quiet little back parlor of thine, in consequence of some casual glance on such afternoons; and if you, Mr. Kinchy, will tell the plain truth, and we never heard of your being given to toiling anything else, you will acknowledge how in* finitely more the treasury of that pretty apartment over your shop thrives through the influences of these days of petticoat convention, than does the more ostentatious columned edifice in your neighborhood, through those of the other Congress. it was somewhat too cool on Thursday at the Capitol to be altogetherso agreeable as yesterday proved at the President's; still both occasions drew a crowd, delighted and delighting.

"The accused is the only one capable of that." " Then the accused ought to have a fair chance of doingso."

What a ghastly satire did it seem upon thc^scc,.^ inquisition tolerated in our national senat'e where the citizen of America, in times sen-styled enlightened, appears to be as much cut off from a pretended birthright, by pretended "people's servants," as ever was the priest ridden helot of Spain, in the darkest days of her bigotry and bloodthirstiness. On the portico overlooking the gaidcn, sat the.

Mrs. Robert Tyler was by the President's side, sustaining, as she invariably does, the dignity of her position at the he-ad of the establishment, with the most winniug grace. ITer sister, Miss C*****, a young lady of remarkable intelligence, and of an addreaa peculiarly engaging, stood leaning over the hallustrade. Near them was a youthful stranger, from Ohio, some on*' said, if wc remember rightly; but whatever her nanie, she had a face and a manner not readily forgotten. The fascinating Mrs. F******* was aigo in the group, as w inning as ever, and making all wonder that, looking thus girl-Vike, she could he the mother even of the sweet Vittle one prattling by her side so charmingly. The President's niece, Miss added her su*iny smile to the attractions of the assemblage 'iiere. As for the promenaders in tne anevs Deiow, it would be almost as eesy to give a catalogue of the stars in the milky way on a clear night, as to single them out for separate description.
