Tapputi will shortly be hung in this city for a most brutal murder. Colt has been denied a new trial by the Supreme Court, and must soon sutler the penalty of the law. Low is now on trial for the murder of Winans at Hallway, and we expect that lie will be found guilty to-morrow. Verily murders will soon he at a discount, anil the world may become honest. I >1:. Morr a\i> I'ii. I lot si-ox.?We observe that a controversy has arisen between Dr. Moll and lti? brother of the Stuyve int Institute, and the Editor of tic "Lancet." I ?r. Houston lias been strenuously contending for an extension of the period of collegiate medical education in this country; and we think with him that eight months instruction is rather limited, and are confident that ull enlightened and disinterested men must believe that by render" ing tlve course of college education here, equal to that pursued in the Universities ot Europe, an immense deal would be done to improve and elevate tlie character of the medieal profession of this country. Or. Mott and his colleagues, however, think otherwise; and certainly, as they have heretofore given the public so many proofs of their singular sag-icily, we must conclude that they have not unadvisedly assumed the attitude of virulent opponents of any reform of medical education. These gentlemen arc \cry wise in their generation, and doubtless argue that if they maniitacliire M. O.'s for a less expenditure of time and money than any other institution. that they will reap, if not a harvest of honor able reputation, tit least .substantial proofs of the w isdom of their policy. The Stuyvesant faculty, we may add, in conformation of this view of their conduct, generously tuke Southern and Textan money at par from the students, thus reducing their lees far below those exacted at the humblest village school of medicine, and exhibiting at the same time a remarkably accurate idea of the worth of their own prelections. After all, however, \vi*?ns this faculty are, they maybe mistaken in their shrewd calculations.? Somehow lite public is not so easily cheated now-adnys. Brass is pretty generally estimated at its pro- ] j?cr value. ; With all due respect for the sapience of the Faculty of the Stuyvesant, we would conclude ilii.pa nigraph by reminding them that limy cannot gain personal abuse of I'r. Houston in the columns of enrriloiis and obscene prints. It they regard Mr. 11 V advocacy of an improved system of medical education reprehensible, let them show it in a dei cut manner, and through a decent channel.? Verb, tat. n'kxi Nkvvs.?Th.

Hmald. 1>kaji 8iK Aliout one o'clock last night, (rather this morning) a> I was returning trom the theatre, alter having heard Booth in ln> favorite character of Richard the Third, my attention was attracted by lights in the capitol, and I immediately determined to lind out what it meant. Upon entering the hall of the House ot Representatives 1 found about a do/en gentlemen socially collected together, close around the Speaker's chair, listening in perfect silence to u speech from Mr. Kdwards, of Mo., u|>on the tarill' I'pon looking around, 1 found Mr. Wise among the number, with his head like a chicken's, apparently under his arm, and in n profound sleep. Ihxon Lewis was also there, in a glorious rtate ot indiflerence to what was going on around. .1. Thompson Mason, of Mil., sal with his back low aid the Shaker's chair, with hishat on over hi- eyes.und entirely unconscious of existence, in other wools fast asleep. There was Mr. TiHiiighast, Mr. Campbtdl of Term., Mr. tiwinof Miss., Mr K idgeway, and two or three others, in the same iincouscious, happy condition. Mr. Thompson of Mi? , w.i* the only gentlenian with his eyes open, and lie w as w atching with all anxiety for the lloor. .Matthew Clark was sound at his post. There was no disorder?no noise?except what the speaker who hud the floor made. Mr. Hopkins, ot Va ., was in the chair. His face was turned m a different direction from the gentlenian who was occupying Hie floor, and I afterwards learned that the lust gentleman who hud s[K>hcn, Mr. Caldwell, of S. C., stood upon the opposite side ol the Hall, and thai Mr Kdwards, who followed hint, upon the other side of the room, found the Chairman in a profound and fixed sleep, with his hack turned toward him,and from which position Mr. Hopkins never moved during the speech. After Mr. Kdwards had concluded, some gentleman rose and moved the Committee rise. .Not one wont of reply was made?a death-like silence prevailed?the Chairman, clerk, and members w i re all asleep. Says I to myself, this House can never adjourn till the day of pulgment, and, without any formal adjournment I believe, the members dropped off one after the other, and myself among litem, leaving the balance to their sweat repose, and I have no douht that there they remained till Mr. Mallit opened the I louse next morning with a prayer. Kacli one of these gentlemen well earned indeed their eight dollars for having slept so well and soundly. .1. I,. I*. S.?Next morning?I understand that at eight o'clock litis morning, the last account wv have, that Mr. Hopkins, the clerk, Mr. Lewis, Mr. Mason, and Mr. Kidgeway were still asleep in their places. Mont lectio. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Month kulo, July 11, 1H42. The Krtrution of the Murderer, lhwdcnbwgh ! Mh. James Gordon Bennett? Dear Sir:? I hasten to write you the last account of poorllardenburgh. lie was hanged to-day ahont I o'clock, I'. M. "At an early hoitrthe village was thronged with people front Sullivan, Orange and I later, all anxious, of course, "to see what (to most of them) was not to he seen." A riot, of course, wasexpocted by the old women and children, hut tliepe zealous alarmists lost all their fun, for the good, curious people of Sullivan,having "never seen any body" hums; won' not anxious to in;;'1 tin' chance to ho sure, and when they came to see the "ipso facto" that their diligence would not avail thelYl lor a peep ut the operations they felt huge but acted soberly. Hut truly there wnssomething engaging in the poor fellow's firniness after all. When the Sheriff entered the cell to adjust tin* halter and lead him out, he seemed to feci as anxious for a proper "fix" of the knot at the ear, as any other person could be. He came out of the cell with white linen jacket and pantaloons, white'eravat and low shoes or slippers, with white stockings. When lie took leave of his son in the cell, 1 believe he shed tears, lie said to ( hint "take your mot her in Vonr arms, nty son, and i carry Iter through the world." Before lie ascended i the sr.iHold, lie shook hands with the sheritl and un- | der Sheriff. Hew K. K. fowler, Arc., hid them an J a tier donate farewell, and went up the stairs as firmly as if going tolled. The Sheriff (Mr. Kelly) was ! evidently more atleetcd than lit prisoner, lb'is a , man ol excellent feelings, and felt no doubt like a ( man. The prisoner was on the scaffold sonic time i before the cap was put on It was turgotten,douht- 1 less in consequence of feelings which u man of She i ritf Kelly's humanity would doubtless indulge to ' some extent. The appropriate service was repeated by Hew Edward Keaton Fowler, and all was so- 1 lemn as the grave. Vet the prisoner seemed not much impressed. Ills manner, voice, and action were as tirm as ever; not a muscle was seen to move, lie waited patiently, us it seemed, for the cap to be brought, and remarked that he cherished no malice against any person, lie looked upon all present as his friends, and believed them such. Cant. .!. !>. O'Neill said he wished to ask hint whether lie knew anything concerning the disappearance of Lewis IJ iisbrouck, sonic years since, that others did not also know, or something to that effect ? lit* replied in substance that lie had no secrets or mysteries to i disclose. 1 After fliedrop foil hr hung I think, mot ionic* for t about 10 minutes, when a slight shrugging of the 1 shoulders ?'j. apparent, but there was no fearful * struggle for life, 110 seeming reluctancy, no dread, , no fear. 1 le w ent to the gallows the same in up- ! peurance. the same in conversation, th<' same in manner that lie Irad been lor a long time past. 1 i heard a man a>k lum tin- morning it lie was rerun- 1 r iled to death. I le said "ye j yes. perfectly." And 1 believe it is the general opinion here that he went 1 to the gallows unshrinking and unrepcnting. Be 1 this as it may, it i- my deliberate opinion, and one 1 1 consider resiiav on the best evidence. Soon after the excutton Ins friends took linn, placed him in a eoflin, and on a hears -, bare him solemnly away.? I lis neck,l.think. could not be broken, and he seemed not very black in tin- tuee, though the drop, 1 am informed, \vasfour f'-et. Something is said about his moving in the collin, but this I cannot vouch for to any but the lovers of the marvellous.? Well, the awful drama is closed with him forever! lb committed a most barbarous and bloody crime. It was done in a determined and awful manner,and and his death was firm and uiiblenching as could be experted troin such a character. 1 can sav. though not to his credit, that I never saw an exhibition of so great mental firmness before. Such a man? such a deed?such a death, arc to my view all entire anomalies. I am informed that lie told a gentleman this morning, that lie had a very refreshing sleep last night, ate a good hearty sup|H-r, with a good appetite, and a full breakfast with the same? that lie had no concern about his approarhingdeath, , but left it all with (>od, who would deal houcstlv witli him it man would not,and that lie would thank l>eoplc to attend to their own business, and not med die w ith Heaven's decrees.

It is nearly a quarter of a mile from where w e were talking to the place w here the body was found. Heard, after that, several reports of guns in dillerent directions ; the first I heard was JO or 3D miautes after I saw prisoner; heard two reports in the direction ill w hit'll the body was found. Crofftiamined?There wore many people out shooting on that day, and hud been lor two or three days previous lie aid reports before I saw Low, and afterward ; I was at work when I saw him ; did not watah him particularly. Jas. Win i k, sw orn -Knows prisoner ; have seen him frequently within live years, on my farm and in the road ; heard of the murder on 30tli of June ; saw the mound in w hich we supposed the body was buried before it was uncovered ; was there when the clothes were taken off; these are the clothes ; 1 saw Low about 3 o'clock, on tWth June, in the foot ol the lot in which I was at work ; it is between 3 and ItlOy arils from Isaac Winans' place; he appeared to have light colored clothes ou and alight hut; he was standing by the fence alone with a dog nnd I believe a gun ; should think lie stoo l there from Ii to 'I!i minutes ; he then went into my woo ls, toward Isaac Winans' farm, in the direction oftho raceway ; I was in my field till six o'clock in the afternoon ; lu ard the report of a gun shortly Hftrr Low left, in the direction in wliidh he went, heard two other reports in from 16 to'J > minutes from the lirst one ; those report* wore in the direction of Isaac Winans' farm ; heard a stiaugo halloo on the ftrst of these last rej>orts ; I looked in the direction from u hlth they came and saw the smoke of n Run ; I was standing about "am yards from where Winans was shot; did not see W. at work that day. Crotfframinetl ?It is aliout 110 yards to where prisoner stood, from mo ; he stood on the inside of the lot and there was nothing to prevent my seeing him ; his hack was toward mo; ha turned his face toward me once or twice; he appeared to he looking to see if he wns watched ; thought lie had somcohject In view front his standing so long ; he sometimes got Upon his kneeaud looked through fence ; don't think he had a gun ; the place where he stood w as .">50 yards front where W. was shot; could plainly see into the lot where W. was found from w hero 1 stood ;*saw Low as soon as I came out from dinner ; looked to see him lire if he was after game.; heard no other reports of guns that day, except the three already spoken of. It is not very common for persons to go out gunning ut tliRt seuson ; the tirst report was in my woods and the others were in Winans' lot.' I judge so Irom the smoke and the reports ; saw Low in W.'s field ; can't tell whether the strange scream I heard proceeded from muii or dog ; thought tinman might have l>een correcting the dog ; think 1 could have seen the prisoner from my position, if he stood w here W. is supposed to have fallen ; didn't w atch him through his whole course; the nearest I saw the prisoner to the spot in the oats was two or three hundred yards; don't think I looked to see the man when I heard the reports ; looked at the rising smoke ; could have seen the man if I had looked ; did not see the prisoner eomo out of the woods ; only saw him after he was out; the place where W. fell w as higher than the knoll ; the smoke w as pretty high above the ground ; rose near where the body had fallen. Jonx Ladlev, sworn.?Live on White's farm ; hare known Low for eight or nine years ; saw him the day hefore the murder, about three o'clock, ut the foot of White's field, leaning against the fence ; he wore a light colored hunting coat and straw hat; his dog anil gun were with him ; stood there about twenty minutes; he wns leaning over the fence, looking into the river when 1 first saw him; he then got on his knees anil looked through; had no doubt it was Low ; afterward saw him tun or uftctn j ards from that place, going towards the wood; he had not more than time to go into the woods when 1 heard the re]>ort ol a gun?1 next saw- him going through Wilt an's lot. about two hundred yards from the place in which the body is supposed to have fallen ; about twenty minutes alter that time 1 heard two rej>orts of a gun in pretty quick succession ; r.ot more than u minute elapsed between the rejiorts ; it might have been less ; saw the smoke, hut no |a-rson ; think I might have seen a man if one had been there; my attention was drawn to the s;>ot after I had heard the two reports. Ellis Leecii sworn.?Live about 150 yards from Winans' place; have seen the prisoner very often within two months past; suw him on the 29th, in Dennis Clark's lot, adjoining mine, uliout 5 o'clock in the afternoon; he was coming towards me from Clark's wood; wore a light shooting coat and straw hat, and had his dog with him; saw him about W o'clock, between Wright's and our house, in the toad, he was going towards Howurth's?

I asked Inni w hy, ind he. said ha did not know ; that tie w as the most curious man lie ever km w in his lite to make a bargain with, he said Isaac had plenty ol money with him?that he had show 11 it to Peasant and him at some house down town; ran't tell at w hat house it was. 1 asked him how much |snac had shown, and he said fc-2100; >7wt were in specie, the rest in bills, and that lie letl to hi* nephew, os he was going w est mid would never see him again. The next day 1 met Leech, and W e w ent around to search at Winans' house; not finding any thing there wo went away, and alterwards to the pluce where I heard the report of a gun the day before, and saw some blood there; this w as atxiut llo'cloek; half an hour niter this the liody w as found; the first blood we saw w as in the foot of the oat field, in the s|n?t w here we supposed W. fell. We then went lor more men, aud traced the blood to the place w here the body w.u buried; saw the clothes taken otf the liody; thinks these w ere the ones; the belt was show n him, aud he said he saw it on that day; don't know whelier there w,is any money in it; saw the pocket* of the slothes searched; think there was a ]>ockel hook in one >f them.

[Witness told the same story relative to the body us the other w itnesses.) The body was stripped and washed, and prisoners were told to place their hands upon it and toll where they had seen it last; they did not sit upon it, hut kneeled by its side and placed their hands on it.

" 11. Mkigs, Clerk." Kor the purpose of securing an inJictment against Messrs. Whiting and Verrcn before the late Grand Jury that a ljourned yesterday morning for the term, the Court of Sessions issued an order to bring DeBullion from prison 011 Blackwell's Island as a witness, and his testimony was received und recorded. There not being sufficient testimony, in the minds of thejurors to implicate Mr. Whiting, as was mainly intended, on the part of those who have moved this atl'air in secret. The complaint against him wn? dismissed, and at a late hour on Friday, directions were given to prepare an indictment against Mr. Verrun, which was found, and he yesterday afternoon entered security in the sum of $-2,000 to answer the charge. It will be remembered that at the time of the conviction of DeBullion and Barthelemy, they applied to the Supreme Court for a new trial, which was refused, on the ground that naught lmt justice had been dealt out to them. We doubt whether the annals of rascality can produce a more infamous movement thau the above, and we also have reasons to believe that the whole affair lias been alone engendered in an attempt to implicate Mr. Whiting, as a stopping stoue to his removal from the office of District Attorney. Should such prove to he the case, those who have steeped their hands in this business will be fully and eft'ec tunlly exjioseil to the scorn of an insulted communityWe shall have more to say on this subject at another time.

Several amendments proposed by Mr. Fernance were rejected. Mr. Filmore then moved to strike out the clause relative to a duty on eoal and to insert a specific duty of $1.75 |*.-r ton. This was opposed and strongly, bv Mr. ltosevelt, who considered the high duty on coal as oppressive to the New York poor ; and lending not the benefit of the Treasury, but only to that of the proprietors of Pennsylvania eoal beds. Mr. |{ oosevelt resisted this taxation of New York for the advantage of Pennsylvania. In a northern climate coal was essential to the support of life. The proposed duty would fall u|>on the Alms Hofise and the pauper cellar. After some further observations, Mr. Koosevelt moved to strike ant #1.75 per ton and to insert 25 cents per ton. This being rejected, as well as other jiroposed amendments, Mr. McKeon, ot New York, moved for the insertion of" 12J cents per ton," enforcing his motion by appropriate remarks. Mr. Brown of Pennsylvania, asked why the New York Legislature did not remit their duty of 10 cents a bushel on salt, which pressed so heavily on the |k>oi not only of Pennsylvania but New York.

Mr. Eritor? The naval and military concert given laat night, by the Independent Blues' Band, Captain L. M-Deems, at the Assembly Rooms, was decidedly one of the most brilliant affairs we have had in our city for somo time. The large saloon was completely crowded and presented a superlatively exquisite array of beauty and fashion. It did the heart good, these dull times, to witness so cheering a display and listen to such charming music. The oonrse taken by Mr. Bolts in rcferenvo to his impeachment of President Tyler, does not take with the whigs of this region. Many of them are highly incensed that such a thing should have been agitated. Whatever Bottsdoes, he must do on his own responsibility, so far as the people of Baltimore are concerned. To successlully impeach a President, is no trivial matter, and I fear thai the mover will die with the botts himself before he gets Capt. Tyler killed oft with them. I regret to state that L. T. lloogewerff', Ksq.,|a much esteemed citizen, well known in mercantile life, died very suddenly yesterday morning with a disease of the heart. Your New York brethren, Messrs.

This is one of the most dreadfully disagreeable days that we hare had here in the course of the last six weeks of bad weather. The wind is from north-east, and the rain pours down without intermission. Stock operations have been remarkably light, and all out door operations are at a stand still. We have nothing very important from Hurrishurg, except the report of the committee of the legislature, investigating into the charges of bribery made against the governor and the legislature, during the session ol the legislature in 1840 and 1841. That is lioth interesting and important. This report shows most conclusively that all the officers and directors of the United States Bank knew .hat agents were employed to bribe and corrupt the Legislature te procure certain enactments, and that over $130, H?0 was appropiiatcd to Geo. Ilandy, Richard Trice and Lawrence Lewis, Directors of the llank for that purpose? hat said Directors employed Daniel M.

The report also shows that $80,000 were expended for the purpose of procuring the charter of the Bank in 1836. The noted $400,000 which so much pu/.zlcd all the officers if the Bank to account lor in the settlement of the affairs >f the old Bank, and which was first jostled from one side if the ledger of the Bank to the other, is now proved by Jonathan Patterson, a clerk in the Bank to have been appro irilllo'l 111 largesses (u miy lll^ ii^isuuii: ijiuh. a lie ri-jiui i dm ws that Nicholas Biddic \\ as cognizant,especially ol the improper doings iu I a;i6.

The tolls received on all the Canals of the State of New York to July 7th, were In IS41 $747,906 In 1842 630,447 Eecrease this year $117,259 The party papers have the supreme folly to charge the fluctuations in tha business of the State as indicated in tha tolls on the public avenues to ]>oIitical influences. This is done in order to influence votes. The farmers of this State should brand with their displeasure the contemptible jioliiician who assumes them to be so wanting ia in* tetligcnce as not to be able to judge for themselves of the causes of a decreased business oil the canals. The Erie canal is in good repair and the tolls are the same as last year. If a farmer on the line of the canal has a certain ,.r .......l..... l ..?i..., iLi. ,L Ia?t, he furnishes the canal with less toll. If the inhabitants of any county choose to l>c economical and buy less merchandise,the import by the canal is less, of course less tolls are derived from that source. What has State politics to do with this matter 1 If, however, through a change in the policy in the British Government, the lake trade seeks the Tanada market instead of New York city, through the Erie canal, some error may exist in the government at Washington in not meeting such legislation with a suitable remedy.

This has been properly and well answered by tho gentleman from New Jersey, (Mr. Randolph.) He referred to the graduated scale of duties on woollens, improperly called minitnums. The fact is, the operation of the cotton minimum was so successful in extending the manufacture and reducing the price, that the attempt was made to apply the same principle where it was not applicable, as in the graduated araln on woollens. In flannels it was otherwise, and the success r was comtdete." ' A protective tariff is intended to act as a stimulus to ex[ cite labor into full and productive action. He states here i that the importers, as well as the manufacturers, are snf1 faring losses from their business. It must then be pretty evident that the cause of the distress is general, and does ; not arise from a low tariff. Ho then states that prints re' quire protection, that the.v are a fit subject for revenue, and . ultimately that prices will be reduced by the stimulating action of u protective tariff.

If prices are reduced there can lie no benefit whatever derived to the manufacturer, and his p-etcnccs arc false, and criminal, inasmuch as he seeks, by indirection, to deceive the masses of the people. The luminous and eloquent speech of Mr. rickens, of | houth Carolina, of June 22, on the high tariff policy, breaks with a strong hand through the flimsy fallacies of i the advocates of oppression, and strikes with a sure hand 1 at the root of the existing evils. A most brilliant speech , is wound np with the following just vein :? j " Mr. Chairman, In pressing any tax upon our importations in the present state of the commercial world, we must take into consideration the contracted state of otir rurrrney (Old circulation ; and also that the interest on our d< lit abroad, amounting to near $10,000,000 annually, must he paid out of our exports, and will fall in some i measure as a tax on our imports. Under these cireumi stances our commerce cannot bear a tax of 36 per rent.
