Very Important ftom Hhodr Island?More Bloodshed?'Trcinciidoua explosion momentarily expected-?Martial Law and War Proelainatlons. The intelligence received yssterday morning from Rhode Island is of the most exciting nature. We t.ike from slips and pa|iere the following sum marv. We are indebted to Mr. Gladding of the Ma-wachtwtu, Adnnts Co., Harnden k Co., and to tlie officers of the Cleopatra, for the despatch with which they forwarded the news to tie. It is seen by the extracts below, that Rhode Island and the Providence Plantations are the scene of much rude commotion. We see no chance now tor an escape for either party from violence and bloodshed. There must soon be a march to the grave, and the ouly hope is that as lew as possible will join in the processiou to eternity. All who have had it in their power have left the State to avoid the horrors of a civil war Business has been suspended?banks closed?school houses, colleges and churches, turned into barrack rooms?all sorts of people made soldiers, sleeping on their arms every night, and indeed the whole State, containing eleven hundred ajuare miles, is one great military camp, and the one hundred thousand inhabi-1 tants thereof form one big bivouac as the sun sinks ' into the western horizon every evening. With the foregoing we give the extracts. Read them, and prepare for an Extra Herald this morning, containing highly important and bloody news from t he seat of war. The Charter Geireral Assembly adjourned on Monday to'nteet again on Thursday at Chrpacliet, armed and equipj>cd. The Suffrage paper called the Providence Express, has been suppressed by the Chartiats.? This is foolish. If the Chartists cannot succeed in any other way they are certainly in a sorry condition.

SAMUEL W. KINO. [From Providence Journal, (Charter) June 27.] State or Armas.?There was no serious disturbance on Friday night. A strong patrol was out. The Massachusetts brought up 140 men from Newport and Middle town Saturday morning. The Providence arrived in ih< afternoon with 280 men from Newport and Bristol counties, and some others arrived from the same couuties bj other conveyances. Patrols bail twen set around Market Square and Coilee? street, which had been exceedingly crowded during tin day. A number of suspicious looking men, strangers w ere seen prowling through the stieats, and some arrest, wera made. At th: e o'clock, the whola force in the city were orderauto master.

We are unable, therefore, to give tlio number of men, but it was from 300 to 100. n accordance with the request of the Mayor, the citizen* have entered their uames for the number of incu whom thev can accommodate with food and lodgings, oi with lodging* only. Strong vi. lettes were postal upon the road* leading to the city and the approach** ware well guarded.

The steamboat Belle arrived here this morning from New York. The mail brought dispatches lor Col. Bunkhead, commander of the I'nited States forces in Newport It was very naturally surmised that thesa dispatches related to the aff airs of our State, and contained orders for Col. Bankhoad to bring out the United States troops. We understand that this rumor is not correct. The latest intelligence from the insurgent ramp, repreaont the force at about 760 men armed, and perhaps '.'op unaimwl. Their artillery has probably been over estimated, both it) the number and the calibre of their piece*. Many of the men were in anything but a state of sobriety. Stephen S. Lee has been appointed Chief Engineer by Major-General McNeill. The following correspondence is from one of the Captains of a company of ihc Suffrage party:? Chepaciiet, Monday, June, 1842. Dear Sir :? The enclosed letter was written on Saturduy, but the person who was to take it did not wait. Since then things hav? altered considerable. We spent it dreadful night on Saturduy, t]ic report was that 154M1 or 2001) troops were marching upon us from Providence, the effect ol which was to leave us with about one hundred men on the hill. It rained incessantly .ill night, and 1 was on a scouting |>arty witli what hoys we have here, six or nine mile* towards Providence. The day at length dawned, and all Sunday was full of reports and counter reports i now ieu you me piain iruin?a train wnicn i cure not tell any one here. The Algerines are blocking up every road, enforcing martial law, and making preparation! to bombard us from the surrounding . nills. Their plan seems to be to hem us in with an immense force, and then contract the circle, and cut us oil' to a man- They, that is the whole of them, are the set ot cowards I ever met with, on which account we have to keep them in darkness in regard to their real situation. There artonly a few New York boys here, and only three out of that few worth a . There are a few brave met here. They see how things stand, and havt joined my company, and when the worst comes, which can't be long, we are determined, as there is to be no mercy for me or for them, to show the cowardly craven wretches of Knode Island what they might do, if they would. 1 am just going with a part of iiiv company to open a road which if blockaded by a party of Algerines, amongst whom there are said to be* several United States troops The United States troops are now openly engaged in the conflict. Yours, v/. CtiBrACiiET, Saturday afternoon. Dkar Sir .? We have been to work incessantly since yesterday morning, in throwing up breastworks and dig ging trenches around the hill on which we are en cani|>ed Tney are now pretty well completed, an< We have six piece* of urtihery nnxiouslv gazin: through the embrazurcs in quest of the Algerines. who, we hear, every hour, are on the march to attack us, and whose approach we wait with a greai deal of impatience. We are out on scouting partiet continually looking for them, and in case they don't come pretty soon, we shall save them the trouble by going to meet tbem. We brought' Governor Don in this morning from Connecticut before daylight. We escorted htm up in triumph to the camp, amid the sound of music and the roar of artillery. 1 was a glorious sight to me, to see n man who bar been driven from his native State, from his friend.-, family and borne, and outlawed by having a price 1 set upon (lis head, for his devotion to the cause ol equal rights, proudlv marching with his head erect, backed by hundreds of the very class he had made j such sacrifices to elevate, and seeming to mutter to he marched, " Now Mr. King come and take inc.'' c De Wolf has come in, a devout penitent (at least it professions) tin- morning, saying his letter in tin 1 Providence Journal, wasall a "stall." lie earnestly requested the privilege of proving his sincerity b\ being permitted to fight for the cause he haif re" l' nounced; a consultation of the ofiiccrs was held ii the oflicers tent, the Governor presiding, for the pur- ^ iiose ol deciding 011 his application.

I have been talking to them in squads, in fact al; the time, and they begin to feel their degradation in its true light, and if we can judge from appearances, they are determined to wade through seas ol blood, or shake off the yoke. The position whicl c 1 take?which I have advocated, and which yoi can now look upon as the position of the SufTrag' party ol R. I., is that we don't recognize any sue! 1 body as the defunct Charter Legislature ; that th< nuestion is whether the laws of K. I. uuder Gov , f)orr and the people's Constitution can be enforce! , or not 1?whether it is the American soil, or tin American people that are to vote and govern. Ou \ camp is well guarded, and no one permitted t< leave. We want assistance from N. We wan' arms very much. We want men too.

Fanny Klssi.er at the Park to-night.?Mr Simpson takes his benefit to-night at the Park, ano we do hope that it will be a burner?for well he daserves it, and most probably nerds it. Mr. Simpsot has been an unfortunate man, and his only consola tion in the dreary difficulties that besot hitn is thn he hns |>reserved his lionor, always fulfilling his en gagements, whenever he could by any portability realise the means to do so. 1 lis taking a benefit at this moment is the best evidence in his favor, for Mine. Kltder, of her own accord, made a proffer of hei services ns a last mark of her esteem, and in proof of the honorable performance of nil his obligations. We repeat our hope that Mr. Simpson's friends, comprising many of our most respectable citizens, vill rally enthusiastically about bun to-night, am ,'ive hint solid tokens of their favor and sympathy.

Thikd Day. L'nlted State* Circuit Court. Before Judge Belts. Jent Hoy I v$. seventeen packages of cloth.?Mr. Blfei k:b?Examination continued?John Taylor's goods were lot usually consigned to order. The usage in the di? harga of u packet ship was from live to twentv days; il foods were not permitted from a ship they would be sent o the public store under a general order; that was tin :ase usually with woollen goods; they would sometime', ay there a year, long enough to send to England and get tew invoices. Woollen goods for the spring market usuilly arrived late in the fall, sometimes early in the spring -, hose lor the winter market would arrived during the luinmer. Ji:sse Hoyt asked witness what led to the discovery of Vlr. Campbell's fraud. Judge Butts again stopped him, and told him the quesjon was improper. Jesse was again in a quandary; he then asked witness whether Mr. Camphell was detected in defrauding the revenue. ThcJi'txir. again stopped him, told him he must not put his question so, but ask what acts were done. Blefckkb?We detected that false invoices had passed between Dayton It Campbell. Also, there was a similar raud in the case ol Bottomly, fifteen package* by the Roi:oe; one package was entered at the proper value; those nntriesl examined|yeiterday of Mr. Taylor's; some were if a character similarto Dayton's and some were not. Crott examined.- I examined Bottomly'sgoods;claimed part of the profits of those goods. / never got anythingI commenced a suit against Mr. Hoyt for my claim. He said Mr. Coeand Mr. Craig objected to it; the money was paid into court by advice of counsel. I addressed a note to Mr. Hoyt, requesting my share of the forfeiture, and the next day he dismissed me from office. I then withdrew the tuit, rather than lote my situation, and Mr. Hoyt, 1 on that consideration, reinstated me. Oil goods j purchased in the North of England, it was always the practice to allow a discount for mea. sure, all the time I have bean in the Custom House? more than 17 years?until the proclamation of the late Collector to the contrary; can't say when that rule was changed. On some few goods from tome part of England, discount was not allowed. Although Mr. Hoyt was indemnified, and had the letters of Mr. Craig, and Mr. Cor, he dismissed me lrom oflicu when 1 made the claim. To Hovt?I was not reinstated until 1 sent you a letter withdrawing my claim. The letters which passed between us you know wure destroyed, and then I was reinstated. Jrssr Hutt than oflered to introduoe some entries ol Abel Shaw's, made in 1986. Mr Lord submitted to his Honor, Judge Belts, that Mr. Hoyt'* course in the present case was a 'murderous wusteoftimc?he might with the same propriety go back for 60 years. The Jcdoc finally admitted the entries. Mr. Lord?He must prove the entries. Ji-Dor. Butts?Certainly. Jrssr. Host?Some were sworn to before Mr. Campbell ?and some of the parties art dead they were sworn to hefore. So I shall hare to send out for a witness, since they object. Jessy. IIoyt then offered to introduce 36 invoices from Abel Shaw, to John Taylor, Jr., dated in 1889 and 1839. Mr. Millies insisted on Mr. Hoyt's proving their authenticity. Mr. Hovt?Mr. Davis ? No answer. Another tedious pause. Mr. Hoyt?It's <|Uitc difficult to keep witnesses in Court, sir. Mr. Davis was found. Or.oRtir Davis examined.?These invoices were presented tome. I can't tell by whom unless I saw the entries. (Others shown to liim.l All the invoices were presented to me at the time of the entry. Some for part of the goods, some for the entire. (Other invoices shown.) Hovt?Arc all those invoices in the same hand writing 1 Mulch asked if they could prove hand writing by a comparison ? Mr. Davis said that he did not know any thing about the hand writing. Mr. Hoyt said something that was unintelligible. Judge Betts said that would be assuming a great deal He thought it was admissible to let the witness say if the hand writing of all the invoices was similar. Mr. Davis thought all these inveicos were presented to him by John Taylor, with the exception of some premnted'to me by Mr. Bradbury. Cant aay how maay of them. Can only give a mere opinion as to the similarity >( the hand writing. They all look alike?no '. here's one :hat isn't alike. Of course ! can't speak with any certainty. Only as to my impression. (Two more invoices were shown.) 1 should think these were the same. Judge Bkttj?You'd better wait, Mr. Hoyt, and prove them, before you ask any questions about them. Davis?Should think'these were presented by John ray lor; only judge by seeing the name on the back. They were presented at the time of the entry?can't say ly whom. There are no such strong characteristics iii lieseto make me think them the same hand-writing. Hovt?What is your belief? Divu?Why I've no belief about it* sir, except a very . ague and indefinite one. The handwriting does not re emble; the figures are somewhat similar. 1 believe, puling all the circumstances together, that they did emanate rom difftrrnt tourret. Hovt?Who do they purport to come from ? Objected to. Judge Bctts?We had better not waste so much time n vague evidence like this. Hovt?Kor want of better proof, we give the best we :an. Judge Betts.?Yos, sir, hut this is no evidence at all. The witness says he cannot decide positively any thing tout the handwriting. There has been a "great deal ol ime expended, and we had better go at once into the pro>cr details of the canf Mr. Oc.de* examined?Was in the Custom House from 931 to 1938; can't say positively if the invoices of the forkshire importers were retained or not. Cross-examined.?Don't think there was any difference a retaining the invoice of one importer more'than others. Hott Yes; hut who did those importers generally nake their entries before, sir ? OoDCN.?That's a question I can't answer, sir. There were several in the office belore whom it was done. Hott.?Yes, but who in particular? Ooni:?c I do not know of any one. Hott?That's all, sir. Miller?That's all, sir. Another long pause. Judge Bf.tts?Come, gentlemen, do get on with the ase. Hott?Another witness has "jusi stepped oat." Mr. Plume called?Went into the Custom House in May 939?Examined the amount of part of the invoices of Johii Taylor. Mr. Hott then offered a quantity of irrevelent evidence, mil consumed the time of tne couh and jury with much alking. Judge Betts said, he must rule out such evidence?it vas not admissable according to law. Jesse Hott then made several other statements of a iniilar tedious character. Judge Betts very drily remarked, "I supposed by rour opening, sir, that you intended in som way to con>ect Mr. Blackburn with Mr. Taylor's importations?fin faitinc t? i?* it done." Plume was dismissed. Wm. C. Orat, examined. Jesse Hott asked him the tame questions that he had lsked of Mr. Plume. Judge Betts?In what way does that differ from the last question ? Miller?Not at all. Gray was dismissed without giving any testimony. Joht Woopiiead examined?Is a tailor in this city.? lorn in the habit <>t importing cloths and caasimercs for everal times. These papers are an account of good* 1 ippraiscd. The marks are Diamond B. F., and Diamond T. I presume the prices hare marked are what we made. Croie-rxamined?Cannot saj- that this account of prices - uir miiiir iuui wi- inauu 111 iiihi time; <iui not iook anne mper made nt that time to see if the price* put down here were the tame that we pave; don't know in whole Handwriting the paper it; cannot say that their are the irices; have no knowledge ol the prices nt which wo appraised those goods. Mr. Horrsiis here came to the assistance of Mr. Hoyt >11 a very ingenious manner, in order to get the appraisement prices introduced in evidence; and witness then swora that these prices were put down on that paper a! the time he made the valuation; he had no doubt of it. MiLLca?Cannot you let Mr. Hoyt manage his own case himself? Harries*?Havnt I let him manage it long enough to .atidy you? [Here there was considerable laughter, even among the jury, and the Judge was forced to smile. Crott-tiamintd Ay Ml LLC*?Don't think the prices were carried out at that time; don't know positively that ills is the same paper.

The J- nn* thought the p iper might be referred to iu orler that witness might sty u hat were the prices put upon he goods at the time they were appraised. MiLi.ca objected, and read the opinion of Judge Story ?n this subject in the case of Wood, und demanded that Mr. rtovt should now show that there had been a public apiraiser to value these goods. Mr. llorrMis made a very ingenious argument in favor >f admitting the testimony. Mr. Loan replied in a very able manner, basing bis irguments upon the strict law'of the subject , referred to he statute regulating the appraisement and forleiture of toods falsely invoiced, lie said that the Collector was ounil to have th>- good*appraised by a it-gularly appoint 1 Government appraiser. Under the acts at present in orce, these cloths could not be forfeited. We should live n sad times, indeed, it a Collector, prowling about with the tope of plunder, could sei/.i any thing and every thing in hit way that he might chouse to say was entitled to foreiture. and to throw on one side the regular Government ippraiser and his opinion on the stihiect. Dut more than his, the Co Hector here (Hoyt) had made the forfeiting allocation here that they hail boon regularly appraised Dy a government appraiser, according to the nets of Congress, <o made and provide), and found to be falsely ievoiced lie must prose that allegation, or his case must fall to the Mr. Horrxux replied, and referred to the 3.1 section ol he net of l<hl?the net ap|K>inting tlir nnprftinert. and prescribing their duties. lie contended that the good* 'wing aeived. no matter how irrrgnlarly. ami bring in Couit, the claim of the United States could not lie affected by any informality of the Collector. He read the clause oi the act of 179f>. relative to the appraisement of good* bj 'womerchant*, which would juatlfy Mr. Iloytin hia present case, unler* it was repealed. Mr. I. >an replied that tha two allegations in the infor. m.ttion under which the good* were sought to bcconfisca p|. were laid utvler the act* ol IBM and |s30, and in ' under the act of 17W. on the ground that the goods en inportion were found to he talaely invoiced and not to correspond with the entry.

June 'is?Mandamus This being the day designated for the argument in relation to the Sixth Ward election, and the election of Clerks to the two Boards, in immenst number of persons assembled at an early hour to witnesi the proceedings. Messis. Charles O'Conncr, A. L, Jordan, and T. A. Cowdrey, appeared as coitnsul on behalf of the Mayor, while the opposite side was represented by its former advocates, Messrs. Koote, Wood, and Graham. There arc three causes?that of Messrs. Heath and Roome, assessors ; with those of Joseph R. Taylor and Edward Williams, clerks. They are all to be blended in one argument, and the same decision given the whole. The man. damus, we need not (jv, has been issued requiring the Mavor to show causa why he docs not administer the oath to those gentlemen as officers duly elected. But two conn sel are to be heard on aside. Messrs. O'Connor and Jordan will address the Court on the part of the Mayor, and Messrs. Foote and Wood lor the relators. After some little preliminary matter, the case was opened on the part ol plaintiff" in error. Mr. O'Connor made a statement of the circumstance1 attending the mandamus thus far. The official order fo the late election, the affidavits relating to the attack by i mob on the Sixth Ward Hotel, where the first district pol was held, whilst the canvassers were counting thetickeb. their flight from the room and subsequent return in abou half an nour, when they found (as a majority of the inspectors testified) some of the tickets lying on the flooi and some on the table, the refusal of the Mavor to swea1 in the whig officers of the Sixth Ward claiming to b< elected, on the ground of no return having been made t> him?the counter declaration that the tickets had not been disturbed during (he absenee of the inspectors, but tba< the whole wore taken by them to the Maj or's office an<. counted?also that the whig officers had been elected by the other districts of the ward, the result of which coul' not have been changed by the vote of the first district were read by Mr. O'Connor?also thv proceedings relativi to the election of Mr. Taylor as clerk, by the whig members of the Board of Aldermen, Mr. Crolius havihtr assumed the chair rendered vacant by the death of Alderman O'Neil, which assumption, Mr. O'Connor said, wacountenanced by the other eight members then present? In the other Board, relative to another {of the complain ants, however, said Mr. O'Connor, the case was different Mr. Shaler held possession of his seat. Mr. Atwill claimed it, Dutthe Mayor would not sweiir him in, althougl he was sworn by the Recorder, both bclore and after tni meeting of the Board. Mr. Crolius wasnotsworu, evei by the Recorder, after the meeting of the Board. Mi O'Conncr said the members of the Supreme Cour had hastily, rendered judgment, without having had tinx to review the points of law in the case, the Sabbath only intervening between the argument and their decision 'At. O'Conner then read the opinion delivered by the Su preme Court on^iving Judgment, and proceeded in his re marks. He contended that the Mayor had no right to loot behind the return of the inspectors, nor did he think tha* the Supreme Court had any more right to adjudicate upoi the subject than Mr. Morris had. Ihe law requires tha the inspectors shall make a return as to the persons having the highest number of votes. In this case the hallo boxes had been disturbed, and the officers alone authorized by law to do so, had officially stated that from physics raiikVs tbi'V vi-pn? lllinbli- In m'&bo Elicli rslnm U'?? I ! for the ministerial otticer (the Mayor) to interfere, nn< himself make out a return contradicting their dec laration The mandamus might have been issued against th< inspectors, requiring them to show cause, but instead of that a third party was brought up, totally unacquainted with the circumstances, and called upon to become the principal, the real parties in the case having nothing to say in relation to it Tkhe mandamus is a sacred instrument, which should b< tarely touched, and jnevcr when redress could be had by any other mode pointed out by law. In relation to thr assessors, the Common Council is authorised to act: and as to the Alderman and Assistant, each Board in itself hapower to examine into the correctness of the return This power, too, is solely vested in them, and, therefore the Supreme Court had no right to interfere. Had thi Common Council refused to decide upon the subject, thei the action of the Supremo Court might have been in vokod, but with the mode of proceeding, and the result the Supreme Court would have had nothing to do. Thi members of the Common Council act lis c sort of jury, athe members of this Court do, and to them the decision in such cases has been confided. As to Alderman Crolitis the returns did not show him to lie elec'ed, and he had in right to intnido himself without the legal certificate hcinp first obtained. If he thought himself wronged, redresi was open to him in a proper way. Is it right, said Mr. O'C., that men who have no return should seek to oust the members legally In possession, or intrude so as to prevent a new election 1 If men can thus come in withonthe form of law, it will be a premium for themselves 01 friends lo break the ballot boxes, and there may be no end to the number who w ill claim, by threats and violence the disputed seats. In regard to the clerk, (Mr. Taylor,' Mr. Crolius. and thr eight Aldermen who acted with him did not constitute the Borrd of Aldermen, and, therefore, had no right to elect him, nor had the Recorder any authority to administer the oath of office- The Mayor, on . I. ? ....I...-,.- ,. ~C I pcricn had a right to act. In reapoct to Mr. Williams the other relator, Mr. At well, anil the eight mem hen acting with him, did not form the Board of Assistants, and therefore hia election was also illegal. Mr. Shale! continued Alderman At jurt until a successor was duls sworn and admitted in hia place; and Mr. Atwell could not be the Assistant Alderman At facto, whilst Mr. Shaler remained in office. These are merely the leading points in the case. They were urged by Mr. O'Conner with great force and ability, and evidently made censiderable impression upon the miuds of the court and auditory. Mr. Koote will address the court this morning on the'other side. His principal points are, that none of the votes being lost, the Mayor had sufficient prima facie evidence to enable him to administer the oath, ic. The Court adjourned to 10 this morning.
