O Bennett :?Dear Sir.?Fur several daya past I noticed in your daily, (which by the way 1 receive regular) iscriptiou of Fashionable Watering places, and I looked thein all over but did not find anv mention made of OUR HOUSE. Now very likely you have never heard of thia place, as I built it last autumn just in time to take a small aurinkle of the winter travel from New York to Albany, and by the way several gentlemen from your place, thought they would call this summer and spend a tew weeks, but as I generally satisfy a man that calls once that he cannot do better than to call again, J doubt wlwther I will see one of them until next wiuter, ihen I am sure of them, as tins will be about aa good a route ea they can take, as the railroad will be competed from Our House to West Stockbridge, and that perfects the chain of rail road from Greenhush to Bridgeport. Now, sir, 1 wish you to understand aomt-thing of the particulars of our location. We are within one inde uf the north line of the State of (Connecticut, surrounded by the tallest kind of mountains, and on the top of one of thi m is a splendid lake, that abounds iu Ash almost as tall as the mountain itself; wc have other very fine lakes. The Hou-at'<uic River one half mile from us, and the tributary streams ol which 1 haxxard nothing in sayiug for Trout and Pik- fishing, are not second to any in New England, if in the worjd. Then there is no arbitrary law about birds in our adjoining tow lis in Massachusetts, perhaps a few could be caught, aud put a few of them with plenty of fish, aud we will have tolerable dinner. The way to get from your place to this, is iuit to drive to Catharine Market slip and take the steamei Nimro-I, (which hy th? way is a craft hard to beat) and on ynui arri val at Bridgeport take the carson the Housatonic rail road whirh will let you off at our house at precisely 4 o'clock. P. M Suppose you call up yous>elf, and ask your friends to come There are the fills too, some fifty feet perpendiculst, more oi less, th it might be named, but I am net diir,s)fed to tell you all ahollL this section, as I had rather ncmilc ahonM lonlt ir over fin themselves. By the way, pny your fare 011 board the boil tiiron<!i, as you sare half a dollar in the fare, it then being only 12.50 from New York to here. The rara leave Our House daily, and passengers breakfast here and diue in New York. Yours, with restart jll 2?"c JOHN BAR8TOW. BOARDING. AT DEAL, MONMOUTH, CO. N. J. T EW18 F.

Tlio Court was cleared and re-opened in aliout half an hour, when the accused's counsel was informed that they were prepared to receive the protest. The accused's counsel then proceeded to read a portest, which he had drawn out, the first reason being that the rrime, as it appeared on the charges, had been committed >n the 11th May, 1839, and, therefore, was bared by the itatuta of limitations; the second that he ought to have t>een tried by a Court Martial, assembled by Lieutenant Wilkes in October, 1840; and the last, that the charges iad heon extinguished, so far as Lieut. Wilkes was con;erued, and were merely prepared by him as a menace to 1 he accused, in support of which the following letter | \"om Lieut. Wilkes to Midshipman May was read.

Your apology is far as'rcipccts myself is sufficient, but it furnishes none ( or your grois violation of the law s, rules and regulations >f the service, and I extremely regret the necessity you lave placed me under to prefer charges against you. < I was in hopes that the guaranty I neld would have prevented any further infringement by you of the laws,rules ' md regulations of the navy. I trusted that your behaviour would have been such to the end of the cruise, that the charges lornially made out 1 against you would have been cancelled. You w ere made acquainted that they would be held against you as a warranty for y our good behaviour du<ing its duration. ' You will see by a reference to your charges, on your ' 111* offence, how great my forbearance has been ; and the ' desire I have had to place you as you formerly stood, has ' been evinced in my restoring you to the same stations, ami ihrowing no impediments in the way of your promotion. 1 Although I am disposed to make great allowances for 1 any officers acting as you have done, on a lirst offence,yet 1 a repetitionjplacca it beyond my power to withhold actions ' consistent with the duty and obligations I owe to the ser- 1 vice, and the respect that is ducto the station I occupy. ' I am, ' I Very respectfully, your obedient servant, ' (signed) CHARLES WILKES, 1 Commanding Exploring Expedition. 1 To Acting Master Wm. May, U. S. Ship Vinccnnes. ' The protest then proceeded to argue upon the fore- t going reasons, citing many authorities, both English nnd American, in support of the positions which were assum- | ed, aad referring to the English statute, which precludes any trial upon any charge for a crime (except that of murder) committed more than three years previous to the , making of the charge*. It also argued against the practice of holding charges in ferrurum to be preferred on a : contingency, which practice had been severely reprobated by writers on martial law; and also that the charges bad evidently been cancelled, as the accused had been l>romoted to tie master of tho Vincennes subsequent to ' :heae alleged offences, and concluded by expressing a con* Idont hope that the Court would not call on the accused o answer tbe charge complained of.

A 1 had no agent or agenta, and gave no orders about ?* it sir. 1 may state that all the officers of the expedition th w ere empowered to purchase shells by general orders dated at Orange Harbour, and on producing vouchers * they would be paid by my order on the purser. This A extended to all officers. The shells were principally purchased from the natives, by a littletobacco or none v heads givan by the officers.

Q.?Do you kuow who placed the ltox abreast the ausfan 1 A.?No, sir. <4.?Was it not the usual place where all such boxes s ere placed ' A.?The deck, between the main mast und the cabiu >ulk heads, was assigned for that purpose, at those hours, jut that was not the identical spot where this box was placed ; it includes, however, tho spot designated as ibrcail the capstan. Q.?Was tlif marked side of the box uppermost, u hen pou first saw it 7 A.?Partly, sir ; it was cock built?(we understood this ;erm meant that it w as placed on one end) ?It was leaning igainst something else. <4-?Did you not turn the marked side up with your ?oot I A.?I may have done so, but 1 have no recollection of it. <41?Did you not leuvc it turned up, exposed to the view if the ships company .' A 1 rather think not. 1 don't think I did. It is my impression I did not. My impression is derived from the iuUseijuent conv ersation with Mr. May. 14 ?You say that the othrers had orders to purchase hells and other curiosities, und upon the production of rouuliers, the mouey paid by them w as refunded. Did you ever refuse, upon tho production of such vouchers, to refund the money pHid I A.?There were general instructions to such a purport; [hat it to and collect such articles whenever ipportunity offered. It might, however, have been foundered as in order. The Judge Advocate re-rend the first part of the ques lion, and Mr. Wilkes stated that there were not orders to the effect stated, but merely general instructions. Ill reply to lust part of the questions, he said until the touchers were complete to law. This is in regard to the officers. I never refuse 1 w lieu the vouchers ? tut ...... LUKMiiNi; lu law . ({.? Did you not know that various kindsof shells and natural curiosities were lor sale oil Itoard theCurreucy l.uss, at Oiiverlon. one of the Sandwich lilandi.and that a very e\horhitunt price was demanded for them ? A.? I did not, sir. (i-?You have stated that the manner of the accused w at rude, hoiaterous, and inipertiiient, in Ilia interview with you; is this a mutter of your opinion? A.?It w us a fact in my opinion. Q.- Be pleased to state the particulars of his manner A.?It would be difficult to do that. Jcdor Advocate?As near as you can, sir. A-?It was a very unusual manner for him. He w as unusually loud in his expressions, whiuli were made in a firm, rude voice, and with corresponding motions and figures. ({.?What was your manner towards the accused? Was i*. culm and collected? A -1 think it w as?unusually so. That is a matter of opinion too, sir. Witness?Docs the question go to my ordering him out of the cabin I Ji ix.e Advocate?Through the whole of the interview. Witness?Until 1 ordered him out of the cabin, then.? That w as don* in a voice stronger than my usually commanding voice, and louder and rougher than I had spoken before.

(Paper handed to witness for examination.) A.? I cannot say that it is an exact copy, hot it seems to me to contain the substance. I think, to the best of my belief, it is a copy. I believe I have the letter on shore. The witness was directed to bring the letter with him to-morrow. Witness?It is my impression, sir, on examination, that it is a copy. Q?Have you ever stated, since you preferred the charges against this accused, that sou would break the officers whom you had preferred ohn-T*ri, inul that they should stay broke, or words to that ellect ? A.?I have no recollection of having said no. I don't remember it. 1 may stntethut my feelings have not been lucb. ({.?Did your orders requiring all shells and other ouriasitiev to he delivered up, refer to all officers, including yourself; and have all the officers delivered up nil such specimens, and have you yourself delivered up all those in sou possession for the use of the government, or have rou retained ,1 large box of shells ami curiosities, dirccttxl !o Mrs. Wilkes .' The Court objected to thi? question; Mr. Wilkes stating that he should wish to answer it, but the Court decided that it should not be put. The cross-esaniinatiou b\ the aroused'* counsel here losed, and the following ifsinstions were put hv o??K:i >f the Court:? Q.?Did Mr. May go to the cabin by your order or repiircment ! A?1 sent for him, sir. Q?Was the box marked and placed there by the order or direction of Mr. May / A.?I don't know, sir. This closed the ex'mination of Mr. Wilkes for the present, but Mr. Wilkes asked to be allowed to answer the last question of the prisoner's counsel, as it would Income a record to the public through the newspapers, and he wished it to be answered, as it was important to the whole proceedings. He stated that he wished to say it was entirely unfounded in every respect. Frederick Stewart, who had acted as clerk to one o' the otticers of the Exploring Expedition, having been taken from before the mast, was culled and sworn.?I w as in the forward cabin of the Vincennes on the -?td May, 1S4J. Q.?Was you present in the cabin ol the Vinceunes 011 the -?id May, at an interview between Captain Wilkes and Midshipman Mav. (The Pr- sideut of the Court wished the specifications to lie read to the witness, when the Judge Advocate said that though it was a practice much used at Courts Mania I, he thought it would lie more honored in the hruach than the observance, as it was a leading examination. The Court decided that it should be read, and the tirst specification having been read, the usual queations put were Q.?What do you know with respect to that specification ? A?1 did not see the box sir. The second specification was then read and the same -juration asked. Witness.? 1 was iu the forward cabin of the Vinceunes when Captain Wilkes, who stood at the door, sent for Mr. Mav. Mr. May entered iu a few moments and t upturn Wilkes stated as near us I can recollect what is charge I in he specification. Q-?-By Coi-rt.?What did Mr. Wilkes state, f A.?Captain Wilkes asked Mr. May if he had marked he box referred to. Mr. Mav answered, yes sir. He asked lim "why P' Mr. May made the reply, "It is a state of act." I did not understand what was then said; Mr. May pjHike so hurriedly that I could not make it out at all. The next I understood from Mr. Miiy ws<. that he had mrchasad those shells from the Currency Cass,after Cspt. Wilkes, or his agents, or words to that effect, had refused o purchase them. Captain Wilkes spoke to him then in a nnn ul.inl, 1 isaiiLI not ....

({?What is the general character of the accused us an ollicer and n geutleaiau, and is he, or not, respectful to his superiors I A.?ilis character as a gentleman has never been questioned. Whilst under my orders he has been respectful uud obedient, and while he was on the Yincuuncs he appeared to be industrious and hard working, generally passing hi* time in the cabin, working at the charts from early in the morning till dusk in the evening. I don't pretend to conceal that it w as a tact w ell known to the squadron, that on the occasion for which the tirst charge was preferred (which has been quashed) he was violent aud disres|iectlul, and it was regretted through the squadron that he hud been so. l{?How did you receive the impression that the manner of the accused was violent and disrespectful on the occasion referred to. This question was objected to by the Judge Advocate, as the last remark of the witness had not been recorded, and referred to a charge which had been quashed. It was rilled out, the accused's counsel not pressing it, as theforuier remurk was not considered in evidence. The following questions were put by the Court: ? ({.?What was the general conduct of the accused for suliordinatlon whilst belonging to the squadron ' A.?1 know of but one occasion which 1 have already referred to on which he displayed any insubordination.?

A.?There have been misunderstandings between Lieut. Wilkes and myself, but I don't think I aver gave him just cause for displeasure. I would, however, ask what I am to understand by the torm misunderstanding ' By the Cocht?Differences as to points of duty, Stc \\vitnes??Lieut. Wilkes hns misunderstood me.

Herewith I give you a short abstract from the Journal of the brig Sea flower. We started front Xew York on the 2d July. Nothing occurred until the 12th,which commenced with brisk breezes from the north,with fine rain. At 3 P. M. the wind increa rtfd to a Rule; nt 51'.

M. had all drawing sail set,through the night line weather; in the morning stood in 10 th" land. Latitude 35 25. saw seven schooners upon the beach; some of which were striping; saw several vessels injured more or lew; whs in ri mpany with a large shin painted lend colored bends, black upper work and painted ports, with lesa of main topgallant must, una main topmast head Thursday, 14th, at ti A. M.,saw a wreck ahead, undent ncuiuc up with and passed it, in order to ascertain it more particularly; tacked ship and sailed a round it; had rv ry opportunity of examining it well; it whs a complete wreck, witn a quantity of hay ill the centre, and a large galley painteddark green; also dead rattle, such its horses, cows and sln i p. Abont In yards rom this mass was the fh or timbers of a\<-sec! conlined together by a put t of the bottom iilank an I the ceiling; a large boat stove, and u .-mull one bottom up: ascertained ton certainly that there was no living being attached to any part thereof We then proceeded on our course with the full conviction the vessel had wrecked, stove, or went to pieces iu 'he previous gale, and that she was a horse jock' y. We passed so near the dead animals as to rub 'hem, both to windward and to leeward, and not the kafct disagreeable smell came front them. Yours, F. B.
