I This morning before tho time appointed for the meetiag >1 the Court, the vessel was crowded with those (utnmon - ^ id to attend the Courts Martial on various officers, to be laid on beard the North Carolina, and various others, to iaten to the finding and sentence of the Court Martial, f vhich was to be communicated to Passed Midshipman day, some of these being attracted by cariosity, and oth- si 'r? by sympathy for the accused, whom they judged, from '' the reports of the evidence which had been presented to r hem in the columns of the Hcbald, to be quite innocent o ifany disrespect to Lieut. Wilkes, besides having formed he opinion that Lieut. Wilkes was a ty rannical and overwaring officer, and very insulting in his department to lis subordinate officers. About haU past nine o'clock, by the ship's time, Commodore Perry, at present commanding the steam frigate e Missouri, now lying in the harbor, close alongside the 1'orth Carolina, came on board, and was received with all he honers. j, Shortly afterwards Passed Midshipman Mav was , ailed tor, and paraded on the deck of th? North Carolina in the centre of a wondering circle of w rliddles, Lieutenants, Captainu and Commodores, c t-sides a goodly number of civilians, when Comnodore Perry read "a letter which he had received from (j he Secretary of the Navy, directing him to read a letter t'hich was enclosed to Passed Midshipman May. lie then ead the following letter to the accused, a copy of which n rlr. Mav has kintllv furnished to our renorler. uinl which a the surprise of every (wrson not belonging totlie Court, jund him guilty of the charge preferred by Lieutenant Q Vilkei, anr unsupported by any other testimony than his >wn,andin contradiction to the characters which were re- c pectively given to the accuscd anil tw Lieut. Wilkes, by j, early every officer called on the trial, a? to Mr. May beng invariably respectful, while Lieut. Wilkes waiof an verbearing and very excitable temper. (l The following is the letter, and speaks for itself NiW Dr.rARTMKITT, j c Oth August, 1S43. i tl It a? p The Court Martini before which you were recently ried at New York,upon charges preferred by the Secrela h y of the Navy, on the information of Lieut. Wilkes, ?und you guilty of disrespuct to your superior, in si tie execution of his official duty, and sentence you to be J ublicly reprimanded, at such time and place us it might ft eera proper. d This sentence has been approved. The ollence of which you have been found guilty, all a bough it involves no moral turpitude,-strikes at the founation of all discipline. A respeetfi^le|*>rtmeiil is part f the duty of obedience, and obedience is the first law of r military service. It is im]iotsible, therefore, that the Pe- S artment can fail to look with displeasure on the conduct t f an officer whoso far loses bis self-control us to suffer p imself to be betrayed into dWresnect to his su]M;rior. 1 am, "sir, respectfully.

We entered the harbor of Kalealiti and p >*de a survey of it, though at the time it was raining, y Te finished in about three hours. We went to sea, and t! \en went farther westward on the island. During a reater part of the time the weather was so thick that the eaks of the island did not show, and we of course could lake no uae of them in the survey, and were obliged to rust to the patent log.

That is the part which I surveyed. Q.?Were those notea ever forwarded to Lt 1>Vilkes7 A?I cant say; I ara not certain.

Te were not able to ?h? the t?oat?, owijig to the swell. r id the great danger of itaving it in, launching it, and rtting it on to the schooner's deck, anil owing to the eather the schooner could not safely go near the reefs; I remember rightly we wete limited in our rime. The her snrrey was carried on in lioats inside of the reef; umbers of azimuths were taken, and tho distances were * >nnected either by sound or triangulation from measured c iser.

I am respectfully, H. y. PINKNEY, Lieutenant Commanding. 'hiklki Wilkes, Com'dg Kxpl'ng Expd'n. Q.?Did you mark all those articles vou considered anecessary ? A.?I think I did. It is my impression I marked all but lie provisions and wood, ami I think those were paid by he purser and not charged to Mr. l'inkney. The account . as remanded three '.imes. Q.?How did you know it was unnecessary to caulk the ehooner J A.?I did not know it was necessary. It had never een reported to me. It was usual on my arrival at a port >r the commanders of the vessel that were there to report J me what repairs were in progress and necessary, .inutenant Commapder Kiggold made a report on my arivai of hia vessel undergoing repairs. Q?Were you at the Bay of Islands when the repairs reremade 1 A.?I arrived there on the 31st March. I think some of lie repairs were made after. I issued orders on the lit Lpril forbidding any repairs being made. By the Court.?It is material to know whether the reairs were made previous to your arrival 1 Witness?I tilink some were made after. Q.?Would not the operations of tho squadron have been played if he had waited for repairs until your arrival ! A.?I think not. I was never in the habit of waiting for ppairs any where, except it was to heave her down. Q.?What repairs were made after your arrival' A.?I am unabletosay. <4.?Were any I A.? I presume there were. <J.?Was not it the duty of the accused to repair his vesel without waiting for your arrival from dangerous ruise whence you might never return f A.?No, Sir. His orders were to wait my arrival. Q?Were any new repairs commenced after your arival ? A?I think there were. I now remember that the chooner's mainmast was lilted at the main-yard of the rincennes. Q?Was that an item of the bill which yon disapproved? A It was not. It was done by the ship's carpenters. Q.?Did not the accused point out to you the repairs irhen youjwere on board the Flyil'g Fish ' A.?I don't think he did. O.?What alterations were made in the schooner; and rhy were they made f A?I don't know. I have had no explanation*. Q.?Did you not say ye?terday that they were mail# for lie convenience of the otlicsn, and to make the schooner tore flashy 1 A?I presume they were made for that purpose.

Ili'Dson calleil. I was on a survey on the tender 'lying Fish, sometime in September or October, I8'"\ at it>eite, with Lieut. Kmmons and Lieut. Case, aim Mr. Bx vis. We examined the muskets and condemned all, I ink"- hut three. They were in a very bad condition. We irve)*c*' one compasses and coodemne.1 them. I dont collect <he number, and I think some sails, hut I am not isitive. I m*<le a roport in writing The article* were aa exce. vlin^ly bad ?tate, and were condemned in conquince of <>?mg in that state The achooner was wet, id Mr. rinl> npy Hated that he had repeatedly cleaned em mil con I 1 not ,h,'m in better order. They did jt, however, lc^ok ? ?ne time as though anything hail en done with ti">'m Mr- Pinkney took command of the hooner at Callao.^n June, I3S9, almost three months here the survey I think when he took command, the hooner had just b.'en undergoing some repairs under Ir. Knax I saw her when Mr. Pinkney was In comland, and I think we iu?t set up a new gang and lain rigging She was in such order as a small veasel enerally is. Mr. Pinkney waaordere.WT in a hurry, but e was fitted out in such n manner as he could get along ith. All that I know of the schooner wa?, that she left n a Saturday in ordinary order, with aome scientific antlemen. I hail not seen her arms at that time. In reition to the surveying of ITpelo, the witness said -I know tat Mr. Pinkney received onlera to survey tee Houth side r l'polo. I carried his orders to him for that purpose at I o'clock at night, in Che harbor of Pangoj>ango,an<l sent a RK I CORNING, AUGUST 10, j boat or l>oats mi.I officer* from the Peacock the next morning to assist in that survey; I met Mr. Pinkney the next Jay, at out one o'clock, off the east end of L'polo, he was working round the eait end to get to the south side, and I was to run round the north ltde to the west side; I met Mr. Pinkney again some day* after; 1 boarded Mr. I'uikney somu three or lour days after, broke him oil' from hii survey and took him oli'to the Island of Saavi; 1 was in pursuit at that timeofa noted Chief, who had killedsomu ofuur men, I took Mr.Pinkney hack,and told him to finish hii| survey, and bring it up to the Island of Apia; 1 went there, and 1 think, while there, Mr. Pinkney caine and reported to me; I told him he had nothing to do with me; 1 had merely taken him for that excursion to the Island of Saavi, and he had not to report to me, the Vincenaes was in harbor, I took charge of Mr. Pinkney'i schooner; took her to the Island of Saavi, after attempting to execute my order* there,/(-turned with the schooner as far as the Island of Aperunio. ofthe west end ot Upolo, there left the schooner, and . ! him to pursue hi* survey; an order from Lieut. VV iik. *, directing Lieut. Pinkney to place himself under Lieut. Hudson's command until further orders was here shown to the witness, w ho said he had seen < it before Lieut. Pinkney hail shown it to him; I frequently sent mechanics from mv ship to the Klying Kish to make 1 repairs. i Crots-txaminrd.? I do?'t recollect receiving any writ- I ten order from Lieut. Wilkes to see the Flying Kish ready for lea; the general order was to see ft fit lor service. It I waa Lieut. Wilkes' habitto give me verbal orders, but I Jon't know that it was particularly t* me;'l obeyed the order to make the schr. ready for sea at Callao; I did not I place the mat* on her rigging or slush down hercnasts; ( there was a new gang ef main rigging fitted to her,and the l boatswain, who was there was directed to do all that was required to her:l was allowed the time necessary to get the vessel to sea; it requires very little time for that; I think I the schooner went dridginz between the time Lieut. Pink- i ney took command and the time the squadron sailed from < I'ollao; I don't recollect whether any repairs were made jii lucucnooner net ween ?.auuo onci inaneite; i went on board the Flying Kiah at Mataiva Bay, for the purpose of ixamining her kelson ; they had cleared away about the heels of her masts, which were both supposed to work;Mr. Pinkncy or Mr. Sinclair taId me they were under the impredion that the step of the mast was workingin the kelson; :here were a number of mechanic! at work on board of her; die was cuulking at the time. There may have been some :hings out of the hold, but not a general clearing out. I :hink they were not clearing out the hold. 1 believe ?omo of the water casks were on shore repairing. It wai aasily seen that the schooner's kelson was loose; two casks removed from the step of the mast would shew that. The hold was cleaned and whitewashed at I'apeite, which makes me doubt that it was cleaned at Matuvia. 1 don't recollect whether the order to heave down was at Mataria Bay or I'apeite. I reported after the examination of the l iteps of her masts, that she ought to be hove out, and that her main-mast was sprung. 1 did not report to Lieutenant Wilkes that the accused had neglected the sails, rigging, kc. Lieutenant Wilkes complained to me of their state. 1 may have mentioned it to Lieutenant Wilkes, but I have no recollection of it whatever. I don't recollect whether I was ordered to enquire into the reasons why the sails, kc. had got in such a state | if we were ordered to do so, it was done. The report of the survey was sent to Lieutenant Wilkes. The schooner had no arm chest at that time. There was a little room abaft of the cockpit, on the larboard side, m which, I understood, they were kept, but I 1 don't know. I presume the schooner had a binnacle pre- i vious to her arrival at I'apeite. There was one afterwards made for her. I think it is likely I furnished her with one i at Navigator's Island. Questioned by Lieutenant Wilkes. i I stated to Lieutenant Wilkes that tlrt> vossel required sxtensive repairs, and was much out of order, though I I don't know that those are the precise words. There was a room below on the larboard side where 1 should think the arms might be kept in racks, but I den't know that she had racks at that time. I don't recollect sending my sail milkers on the'J'Uof July; they were frequently sent | by order and sometimes without, at the request of Lieutenant Pinknev. We had good weather at Apia the first time, there may have l>een a day or two of rain. The last time was very hud ; we had four or five good days out of about eighteen or twenty that we were there ; the rest were rainy. The first time we hail some rainy days. It was generally understood, 1 believe, through the squadron, that no verbal order* would be given, or reports received onjspeciflr duty. I have to say that on specific duties, orders would be given in writing, and the reports received also in writing. This was so understood, because it was so done generally in all cases of surveys, and much of the other special dutii-s ot the squadron. I think it is very probable that I diverted Lieutenant Pinkney from the survey of Upolo, by a verbal order. 1 think there was an order issuM that all communications should be in writing, but I am not |>ositivc. The Court then adjourned till 10 o'clock to-morrow morning. General Sessions. Before His Honor the Recorder, Judge Lynch and Aldermen I'urdy and 11 at tie Id. James R. Whiting, Ksq., District Attorney. Catt of Ihr Her. Mr. Verren.?Ilenry M. Western, Ksq. rose and addressed the Court, stating that he had seen his name published as having been engaged to aid the District Attorney in the prosecution of this case whenever it Court, oi well a* the parties concerned, that although he hail been ennuis I a? Counsel for Barthelmey anil De Bullion in the previous cause when they were convicted of libel, yet he should not assist in tlie proiecution unless specially assigned hy the Court for that pur|>ose, and also requested by the District Attorney to take part with him. Me expressed thu highest feelings of respect for Mr. Whiting, ami denounced, !in the strongest terms, the attempts to Implicate him in the charge of subornation of perjury. Mr. Whitimo replied, that he should not, under the circumstances attending the case, take part in the trial, but should write and request the Attorney Weneral of the State to try the cause. He also stated that Mr. Western would he called upon as a witness during the trial, as his evidence was of Importance. He concluded by saying that the conduct of Mr. Verren, as well as his own, in this transaction, would prove to be clear and correct when the ends of justice had been attained. The RECoanr.H deuiei that he had taken any lot or part in the finding ol the bill of indictment against Mr. Verien, on the attempt to find one against Mr. Whiting. That the affidavits (were taken by him without his knowledge of their contents, and that no person was sent for from Black, well's Island to attend the graud jury as a witness by his request. Judge Lrncii said that he !>elieved that the foreman of the grand jury had requested the court to send for De Bullion, which request was granted. This general explanation having ended, the court proceeded to business. Burglary in the Third Degree.?An Irishman, named William Davis, who said he was a weaver by trade, took his meals in eating cellars, and lodged in Cross street, was tried for breaking into the workshop of Stephen Bushel, 40 Robinson street, on the night of the 2Jnd ult. and stealing two odd boats, wurth which were found in his possession.

He returned to dinner the same day and requested Mrs. Power to obtain some water for him, ami during her absence stole two silver lepine watches that were hanging up in the room. He pawaed one at the store of a Jew in Catharine street for four dollars, on conditions that he should pav eight dollars when it was redeemed ; and when arrested the other was found in his possession. He confessed the crime, but there be. ing a doubt as to the value of the watches, the jury returned a verdict of guilty of petit larceny only, and thecourt sentenced him to six months in the penitentiary. Stealing a Clock.?A black fellow nnuieri John Kvans was put on his trial Tot stealing a brass mounted clock, worth thirty dollars, from George Alter of the Apollo Saloon, on the 10th of May last. The clock was found in possession of Robert Washington, aaother colored man, who testified that he received it from Kvans to sell. A colored woman who lived in the house with Kvans, stated that he bought the clock of a white man, to whom he gave four dollars. Officer Sweet testified that Kvans told him that a clock h*d been stolen from some part of Canal St., and that it could lie found in Bob Washington's house. Thejury returned a verdict of not guilty. Burglary in the Pint Degree.?A loafer named John Dunn, without shoes or hat, was tried on the almvechnrge, for breaking open the shop door and dwelling of Mr. Lewis Hchaefler, upholsterer, 61 Chapel street, on the Iflth lilt.

I then saw him on * VIonday again, and during the week several tlmea. I met hem both at St. John's Park, and Traverse told me that ] Lundy had talked to him about counterfeit money.

I told him that I hail been out of employBent for nearly a year. He told me that he had a plan ivhereby I could make money, dress like a gentleman, and nobody would know anything about it. He told me he liail just come out of State prison, and that if I would join him in pasting counterfeit money, it would be a good thing for me. He said there was no danger, as 1 need not take but one note at a time, and if arrested he could obtain men of standing who would iwear they had given it to me, or hu vould get good men to go my bail. He said thenotea were coming down the river, and that they were regular " out and outers"?that is, first rate counterfeit money.

Your ever welcome Herald reached here this dav at the usual hour, and from the avidity with which it wan sought for by all, one would imagine it to be the only puper published in the good city of Gethain. but as that is not the case, we can only account for its great popularity by an admission of the well known fact, of its containing all the political, commercial or local intelligence worthy of any interest. Of this the news boys here seem to be aware, and are extortionate in their prices, frequently demntiding 12J cents for a single |>aper, which is readih given. As you have expressed a wish to have some one inform vou of the daily events transpiring here, I will comply with the request, and should it either amuse or interest your readers I shall feel myself amply repaid for my trouble. 1 am now setting in a srug little room at " Union Hall," writing, whilst the rain is pouring down 111 torrents, and giving the place an appearance of desolation. The weather is extremely cold and fires are rendered necessary to be comfortable. (Jreat additions have been made to th? " Union" within the last year, and the gentlemanly proprietors are renpin? the benefits they so truly deserve, for the expenses incurred in alterations?the house is now filled to overflowing?so that many of the guests are obliged to lodge in some of the adjacrtit tenements. Amongst the many distinguished visitors here, are Mr. K y, a well known cotton dealer in your city, with his two lovely daughters, who excite the admiration of all; Mr. J B , Mr. R 1, and Mr. H yf air also here. A Mr. Johnson has been entertaining the hoarders to-day by a lecture npon Animal Magnetism. Several experiments were made, some of which were successful; his subject was a young man who formerly accom|>anied the celebrated I>r. Collyer in his tour through the United States. The audience were inclined to believe there was a collu>ion between the performer and some of those who surrounded liim, and a committee was therefore appointed to report the answera given to questions propounded by Mr J..but a* their hearing was not sufficiently acute to understand the answers, n Mr. C k volunteered to supply their places, which he did, and readily interpreted all the groans, gestures, ice. of the lad, into intelligible reply's. The result of all this was a conviction to those wno witnessed the experiments, that Animal Magnetism is ns great a humbug as Joe Smith and his golden Bible. At the United States Hotel which is the crack hotel of the place, they have about two hundred and . l _j ' -c L-> .l- -1 r \r nny uoarnere, mime ui wnirn an* im* niie <m ^c-%% York City, and the remainder consist mostly of moustached puppies, who of course rnnke themselves ridiculous in tlieir foolish attempt" at wittici?m.? The proprietors were placed in rather an unpleasant predicament to-day, in consumer of some thirty of their waiters striking for higher wages ; ami ui two o'clock, the usual hour for dinning, the chairs were to be seen upon the tables, instead ot the rich dishes usually found. The difficulty was, however, removed, by the assistance of the house* in the vi. cinity, who with a most generous spirit, each sent some of their attendants, and at about four P. M. the guests had an opportunity of gratifying their vo racious appetites. Halls were given last evening at the United States and Congress Hall?the former presented far the most brilliant array of beauties ; the most attractive if whom were the enchanting Miss B??t, Miwi D r, and the Misses <i , M , Mil* P t, *as also there, and did wonderful execution with ler large and lustrous blue eyes Amongst the gents vere P m and Mr. B 1, iVc.

Would you believe it, that many of the would-be most buckish and fashionable white beaux here are surpassing th?se darkies in the odd sha(>esand ugly bristly s|<ots they have on different parts of their faces ! It is nevertheless true, for I do * assure you that some of them have the most unseemly whiskers or spots of beard that you can possibly imagine. If ladies would keep such men at a great distance, it would most effectually abolish such a savage fashion. Many amusements are provided for the visiters to these balmy fountains. Nine or ten pin alleys are in many places, some labelled "ladies' saloons," at which some of them play frequently and freely, and it'is said that some young clergymen lake part in these games of amusement. Many of the hotels have reading rooms, where your popular paper is daily sought for with eagerness. II is a matter of regret that in some of these rooms smoking is |>ermittfd with impunity. In th? reading room at the Tremont House in Boston, which is not surpassed for comfort, Arc. by any hotel in the lTnited States, notices are posted up prohibiting smoking. Would it not be of great benefit to travellers if this rule was enforced in all the respectable hotels. The smoke of tobacfco is naturally offensive to thorn- who have not acquired the unnatural, unhealthy, and filthy habit of using it For fear I shall be too tedious, and occupy too much of your time, I close, hoping you, or some of your numerous correspondents will write something upon this subject.

I he Washingtomans or reformed drunkards, held an extra meeting last night to take into consideration the spiritual state of their society, amei d their constitution, and read out the names of the members who had broken the pledge. The meeting was in a fair way toj brake up in a row, when our worthy Mayor mounted the rostrum, and made an eloouent api>eal in behalf of the pledge breakers, which restored order and harmony in the society. Mis honor was only in favor of members taking it as a medicine, and thought they should be allowed to prescribe for themselves. One of the members produced a certificate from an eminent professor, showing that his health ?pH three or four juleps per day. His occupution being a greasy one, they granted him the privilege of three horns per diem. We have had a series of lectures on Heraldry, which has produced considerable excitement among our nobility, and in the absence ot business or atnustinent, some of them have determined to revive that honorable and ancient art; although they have followed the ancient division of shields, they have totally changed the tinctures and figures, thus adapting the science to the present urgent wants of a society distinguished for its advancement in every thing necessary to constitute a select aristocracy. The king at arms is Hariy the Great; the number of his pursuivants of arms (in the infancy of the scienc* <nd the small extent of the select little group worthy of armorial bearings,) is limited to one man; but heralds extraordinary are appointed in emergencies, such as the investigations of pedigrees, citations of contumacious ladies before the star chamber, and the issuing ot letters patent of nobility to distinguished loafers and financiers. But my present business is to communicate to your readers such information <*s may enable them when they favor us with a visit, to mingle with our noblesse, and if need be become i part and parcel of that highly distinguished society. I begin by blazoning the shield of King Harry. The field is or,and argent; in the dexter chief a lion rampant, in the sinister a cock crowing for November, 184-1. Next comes Oily Gammon. His shield has for its field a large plate of beeswax to adapt it to all improvements by the facility with which its face can be changed; in the dexter chief sits Oily Gammon: in the middle an eel slipping through a man's liana; in thehase a chamelion. The tribe of Judah is renresepted by Benjamin bearing the breast plate of the twelve tribes, with a shield of ermine parted by a ben dexter with various figures, among which is a full grown pig; motto, " Habet salutemque Vitani nerpetuam." My attention was taken by the shield of a little fat Scotchman, who sits under it in bank, whers it may bo seen, alongside of a hackle bearing the motto, "uuis quis ipso curet," the field vert, figure a dog following his master; his pedigree goes no further hnrk th^ii himself. His son-in-law the Beau Brum mel of Lexington, has a pasteboard shield, with a inule rampant gurdant, motto, "illo nomen peribet." Our principal broker has a golden shield, with a monkey shaving a rat in the dexter chief, at the base a weasel and a fox usleep; motto, " money makes the mare go." The Good Samaritan has a shield of precious stones, bearing the inscription of his good deeds, conspicuous in large letters His motto stands forth in " munda damno scelerato vivarnus et melius pauciorihus conhdere." Mr. S. has scarcely a title to nobility- he goes the independent figure. His shield has a brazen face, with a tincture of intent medicine in the dexter chief, and an Ishmael'a hand in the base; motto, omnia omnibus." Mr. Braham gave two concert* here at the Phoenix Inn, which were attended by the elite of the city. After the concert an affair of honor with the fists came off in front of the hotel between two gentlemen of this city; a lovely and accomplished lady whs said to have been the cause of the affray.

I had business on board the packet ship 9l Tames yesterday, and on my being on board I asked some of the passengers regarding their passage, I was informed by them that they had a long passage through contrary winds, >.Vc., so much so that most all the steerage passengers got entirely out of provisions The captain, W. 9. Sebor, (for which too much cannot be saia,) very kindly furnished them with every thing they needed immfniHtflv hp win acquainted of the rirninwtiince. I understand this is usual with all our captains under the same circumstances; yet from the promptitude he furnished them one day, with a lat calf made into sea niea, and onotherday with fine pork, vegetables, with all the little necessaries, such as tea, coffee, sugar.iVc., and with every attention personally t" 'he sick or ailing from the sea vovage, flee., I tnink should not go unnoticed. Many of the passengers ssid, if they were going to sea again, they would wait any reasonable time to go with him. If you think this worthy your notice, I hope you W|U S|ve 'l pl?ct in your valuable |>apcr, and oblige A Simk-kimkh,92 Fulton st
