The Novelty Stove is the only cookstove which has hern go: up within the last three years, upon an entire new principle, all others being a combination of old plans rrtnodled in pattern, hearing some new name, as an incentive to increase tlie sale without any regard to utility or economy. The Novelty Stove is warranted in all cases to answer every purpose for which it is recommended, or it may be returned and the money will be refunded. The oven which ia much larger than common is as perfect as a brick oven.

Close of the Rump Congress?Their Morult?Capint trt?Ejf'ert?Hie New Oreanizatirm of the JVary l)e/>artment. My I)kar Bennett: ? I have occasionally heretofore advised you of matters and tilings doing and to be done in these central diggings, and I shall thus continue ever and unon to edify you and the countless host of eager renders who lauj'h and grow both fat and funny upon the varied and instructive contents of your ubiquious Herald, which ever brings glad tidings to honesty, and trumpets detection of vice. The headers-otl of the Capting here find themselves very much in the uncomfortable plight of poor Pat, who, to his utter surprise, sliced off his own humeral excrescence with a sythe, in his eagerness to head with the end of its handle, an honest independent trout, who was pursuing, in his legitmate and constitutional element,the even and straight-forward tenor of his way. They have, as vou know, adjourned, and most of them are now on their way (but not rejoicing) to meet their constituents. Like truant schoolboys, they go home in fear and trembling of the birching which nine months' gestation of puerility and |>ettifogging, so reasonably entitle them to expect. However, there is, 'lis siiid, sunshine behind every cloud. Let said deluded constituents grumble about neglected duty?about ihe disgraceful and degrading scenes in which they have acted for the gratification of the preposterous hopes of the Kentucky juggler? still they believe the virtues of soft sawder and lying, like those of " spermaceti" for inward bruises, will soothe and cure all such popular irritation, and if they fail, there yet remains the sure and abiding consolation of having pocketed eight dollars per diem for nine months, and an equal amount for every twenty tortuous miles of constructive travel which they have been afflicted with in going to and returning from this late scene of their patriotic suflerings?to say nothing of the books, gilt edge paper, pens, ink, penknives and other "stealings," voted to themselves, out of the public purse, amounting, besides said per diem and mileage, to about $300, to each of these suffering and self-denying martyrs. Of these things, however, 1 did not intend discoursing you at starting. I may hereafter resume the subject,and enlighten your readers with an exposition of certain ingenious and recent within-wlieel movements that will doubtless highly edify and delight them. What 1 proposed on commencing this, was a communication in relation to an act of Congress, which passed on the last day of the late rump session, to abolish the office of navy commissioners, and create in lieu of it, five bureaux appended to th? Navy Department. The bill, as it originally passed the Senate, provided for seven bureaux, over four of which, either Captains or Commanders of the Navy were to proaidc. The latter rank of officers was embraced by amending the bill as reported by the Naval Committee, with the expressed view of affording to the Secretary of the Navy a more extensiverange for the selection of competency and talent. This salutary provision, inserted as it was, on all hands understood, for the purpose of giving the Secretary an opportunity to get rid of the late Navy Commissioners, and of the necessity for their a|>pointment as heads of the new Diireaux, was stricken out in the House ot representatives, by the active lobbying of the Navy Commissioners themselves. To this amendment the House also added others which I am informed nearly destroyed its usefulness, and rendered the attempt at reorganization an utter abortion. Of this, however, I um personally ignorant; it may or may not be the case. To the Board of Navy Commissioners is |ustly and generally attrjbuted the present lamentable and shameful condition of our national vessels and of their equipment. ,The expositions of Lieutenant Maury over the signature of Harry Bluff, in the Souihern Literary Messenger, of the grossstunidiIV of this Board, of its pig-headed obstinacy, and of its disgraceful, infamous waste of millions u|>on millions of public money, puts beyond question ihe fact of the entire unfit nesa of any of the old forlorn and obselete captains, who have constituted the different Navy Boards, to control or superintend any of the naval matters, heretofore entrusted to the Navy Commissioners, but now by the Into net trnnsfwrrcd to tlie Hiffrient bureaux in quesion. Yet, the three late commissioners, and their secretary, to whom, nerha|>s, more than any other man, the evils so loudly complained of are attributable, have been appointed to preside over four out of the five bureaux. The fifth being entirely of a medical character, is pro periv io ue mnicrinr direction 01 h aval surgeon. My paper I find is used up. I must, therefore, defer to a future number, any further remark on the subject, and remain, See. Washington City, Sept. 4,1842. Washington?the Ladies?their opinion of young Mr. Bennett?Webb and Mike Walsh?A j>eep ut Certain Proceedings in the Senate?Mr. Claiborne of Mississippi?Philosophy of Politics and Ijove?True Secret of Success?A Ghost Story. Dear General :? The " city of magnificent distances," is most dc-' serted. Congress is gone, the God-like Daniel is gone, Captain Tyler is preparing to go; but the ladies, heaven bless them, are here still, as bright and beautiful as ever. Boast as you may about Broadway, our avenue is a paradise compared with it. Washington is beyond all the world for lovely women. They are decidedly Parisians in their manners, gentle, accessible, lovely, and in many instances, highly intellectual. They all read the He.-ala, and now that Tom Marshall and temperance have put out. they talk of getting up a meeting at the Apollo Hafl, and sending on a delegation of the most beautiful to escort If ieuneeditrur to this citv. The eirls are a'l dying to see the little hero, and presidential candidate for 1880, who has used Webb up so often. They swear he is " a chip of the old block," and will be a terrible fellow one of these days. It is shrewdly suspected that the " young'un" wrote that famous speech for Mike Walsh?glorious Mike. Who can forget his graphic description of Webb 1 " A fellow," said Mike, " who prates about honesty with a bribe of 52,000 in his pockets; who talks about courage with the whelps of a cowhide on his back, and who preaches about temperance with a gallon of punch in his belly!" Why, less than this made Cicero illustrious, and Mike is sure of immoitality. Iiverv body has the speech off by heart: Miss Nancy Kinney sells it at a shilling a sheet, and Hinchey's parrot repeats it to every passenger ; but the girls, who detest a man like Webb, who will run from a six inch mahogany stock, all swear that Dennett junior wrote it. Be this as it may, no speech has ever created so great a sensation, and-if Mike comes here we will lionize him. N. B. Ishe married! Single men are no go here; they are unrurrent coin; no value is attached to them. Married gentlemen, who know how to do the agreeable, are all the rage, and petticoat influence is beginning to be felt in all the arteries of the metropolis. Well, tnis is as it should be. The kingdoms of the old world have never been so well governed as when under the administration of women, and if we could turn out one half of our lajyr office holders and appoint their pretty wives, business would go on iiiucn better. A good many singular incidents took place towards the close of the session, not the least of which was the proceedings in relation to the celebrated Choctaw Commission. The President nominated Mr. Claiborne, of Mississippi, late member of Congress and editor of two or three strong locofoco newspapers in that State; Graham, of Cincinnati, a Harrison-Tyler whig, and^General Starke, of Mississippi, a regular whig. Yet, strange to tell, the democrat was unanimously confirmed, while the two whigs were rejected, and this by a Whig Senate, whicn has heretofore rejected every democratic nominee ! This singular result was brought about by the ingenuity, address, and personal popularity of Claiborne, who is descendant from the fa ?? iruci iii v irgima, aescriDeu ny vnici Jmuw Marshall as "the evil genius of Maryland," who ran Lord Baltimore out of the colony, and seized and held the reins of government in Ins own hands for more than two years?was finally arrested an f sent to England for high treason ; but by his boldness and tact not only escaped, but was sent back by Charles II. with new honors. The Mississi|>|ii gentleman has over and often committed high treason against the whigs. hut yet the most active friends be had here were President Mangum and Mr. Speaker White, while the Whig Senator from his own State supported him with the same zeal that the Locofoco Mr Walker did, whose zeal ran into enthusiasm. I cannot tell wliat brought all this about, unless it be that Mr. C. is extremely popular here with our ladies ; he was a great beau when in Con, gress, and his gallantries were rather talked about; : W XI) fORK. WEDNESDAY M( but the Indies always defended him, so it is all right. Perhaps this may account for the great interest which Mr. Webster, and it is whispered, Mr. Collector Curtis. took in his success. Evans of Maine went it blind lor him. Poor Oraham was rejected because lie was a friend Lnd correspondent of President Tyler; and Starke, because he gave Wise a certificate in the Stanly uttair, and was nominated at his urgent request. Thus we go. In politics as in love, with men as with women, to be scccessful one must be bold, adroit, and have qualities that reach the heart. Your milk-and-water men,that confine their friendships by party lines, and are (unscrupulous to admire a pretty foot or kiss a laughing lip when opportunity offers, never go ahead. A flirtation is a devilish popular thing sometimes. This Choctaw commission is important; salary $3,000 per year, and it pusses on claims in amount to two millionsofdollars. We have a new ghost story afloat. One night last week.i lady at a fashionable boarding house near the relay house, on the road to Baltimore, i>erceived in thv wall of her room the figure of a man. in dim, hut distinct outline. Heine; a woman of singular nerve, she got up, approached it.and placed her hand on the figure. She awakened her companion, who saw it likewise. It remained for half an hour, and then vanished. It stood with its right arm extended; the hand was wanting; in all else the shadow was perfect. Three nights afterwards the figure of a woman was seen precisely in the same spot, and half a dozen persons saw it. A vast alarm was occasioned. An old grave yard stands just under the window. Much exertion has been made to suppress the story, but it has got wind, and is talked of everywhere. .Some of the boarders, on the visitation of the spectre, immediately scampered off. 1 will keep you advised of this a flair. Yours ever, 11. B. B. New Orleans. [Correspondence of the Herald.] New Orleans, Aug 29, 1842. Great Timet in JVeir Orleans?The Banks at Loggerheads?

Much more is on the way here from Europe and New York, and soon we shall have abundance of it. But two of our banks are now obnoxious to the laws, as 1 am informed by the States Attorney. These are the Consolidated and Citizens. The former has Riven notice of its intention to place herself in a proper position, that is to have in her voults one dollar in st>ecie for $?3 in circulation, in two or three days. There is no probability of the Citizens' Hank doing so, and her paper has further depreciated?sales were made of it yesterday at 52c. on the dollar. The vaults of the other banks have all been replenished. The President and Cashier of the Atchafalaya Hank are out in the public prints in reply to the statement of the Commissioners to the Hoard of Currency. The defalcation is shown to be about $130,000. The Teller absconded and is now in Havana, and public opinion generally attributes the defalcation entirely to hiin. The President and Cashier are of our oldest and most estimable citizens, and it will require strong evidences to injure their characters in this city. The city is full ol rumors of intended duels be tween Commissioners, Presidents, Cashiers, (Editors ifee. It is said that the editor of the Advertiser and one of the Hoard of Currency were to go out last evening to have a shot at each other. Warm weather and^idleness have made our citizens pugna cious. Two teliows yesterday exchanged pistol shots in the street opposite the Verandah, to the {treat danger of passers by,and unfortunately without injuring each other. A severe wound might have taught them better. An unfortunate difficulty exi-ts between the Bishop of this diocese and the wardens of the church of St. Louis, in this city. Three weeks since the cure of this church died, nnd the Bishop Blanc appointed Mr. Housselotr to succeed hiin. This appointment gave great offence. lo the wardens, who held a meeting and refused to receive him, alleging the anointment is illegal, iu Mr. 11. is a foreigner, and furthennerr, that they should haveheen consulted in the matter. Thus drew from the bishop a pastoral letter, in which he argues his right to make the appointment, and makes some severe comments on the conduct of the wardens. They, in return, are out in the newspapers, and handle his letter without gloves. The bishop threatens to interdict the church on 1st September, if they do not receive Mr. R , and the wardens threaten that if the bishop does not withdraw the ap|iointment bv 1st September, they will take the keys and close the cathedral. This is very unfortunate, and has caused great excitement among our Catholic population, great numbers of whom support the wardens. Both parties appear to be inflexible, but I hope some satisfactory arrangement will be made, before such extremities arc re sorted to, as are threatened. A disgraceful atrairoccurred last week, between two full members of the Presbyterian church (Mr. Parkers) ; they had a match at fisticuffs, in Magazine-street, in which, however, no other injury was done, than the loss of a pair of gold spectacles. Sad times these. P. S.?Lewis Collins, acting editor of Morning Advertiser, alluded to, fought last evening, Mr. Musson, son of Mr. Musson of the Board of Currency. The latter challenged in consequence of an article in the Advertiser, reflecting on the members of the Board?Distance 15 paces?pistol in each hand, to advance if they chose, 5 jwces each, and both shots to be fired between counting one and twenty. Collins fired at the count two, slightly wounding Musson, marking him straight across the back. lie fired at the count ten, while advancing and put the ball right through Collins'body, who is alive, but hardly expected to recover. Another duel comes off this morning between a merchant and a lawyer. General Sessions. Before the Recorder, Judge Lynch and Aldermen Carman and Bonnell. Sept. 6.?Francis Meyer, a German, who arrived in this Country in February last, pleaded guilty to stealing 15 silver watches, diamonds, rubies, pearls, ear rings, Sep., valued at $234, and was sentenced to the State prison for three years. Alexander Danforthdisrhar^ed?This well known rogue who was arrested on the 16th of July last, on a charge of stealing a silver lever watch of the value of #30 from Samuel Dearborn, of the schooner Nassau. was discharged, the Grand Jury having dismissed the complaint for lack of evidence.

A man named William Carpenter, who is as deaf as a badger, was tried for keeping a disorderly house at No. ftt) Perry street, and as counsellor Mcl^aurin said he could not defend .the case decently, as the witnesses gave a very bad character of tnc occupants, the jury found him guilty, and the court ordered him to be prepared for sentence on Friday two weeks.

Charles Wilkes, continued. The Court met pursuant to adjournment, all the members present. The proceedings of yesterday were read by the Judge Advocate. The room was crowded with the s|>eotutorE,among ! whow were many ladies, drawn together to hear the defence Lieutenant Wilkes had to otter to the many serious, and the few very trifling and tunny charges that had occupied the grave considerations of the court for nearly three weeks. The Commander of the North Carolina and his officers deserve credit for the excellent accommodations provided for the court and spectators. Lieut. Wilkes then commenced reading his defence to the Court, consisting of an octHvo pamphlet of 56 closely printed ]>ages Alter lie hud reud 11 portion. the book was handed to Mr. Hamilton, who finished its reading. The defence commenced by stating that "although nearly three weeks have been industriously sjientby this court upon inv trial, this is far from being the measure of the efforts made against me. It cannot have escaped the notice of the court that from the first moment it was convened in what has hern inappropriately called the trials of Lieutenants Pinkncy. Johnson, Passed Midshipman May, and 1 >r. Guillou, 1 have in fact been treated by the prosecution as the real culprit. No effort was spared 111 those trials to bring the minds of the members of this court into such a state us would insure my conviction when the charges against myself should in their turn be investigated." "The press has teemed with that unqalified denunciation of me personally uuu ui my ucuons yei unuivmgeil lit ttie torni ol legal evidence, as would seem to have been intended to overawe this court, and force from it by the pow er of that mighty engine, a verdict in apposition to the dictates of their own consciences. Nor can I avoid referring to the fact that on my trial, proba bly for the first time in the history of courts' martial, twice has the authority of the administration been exerted toj control or interrupt the proceedings of this court " fie next speaks of the prejudice that had been created against linn during his absence, and says that on his return he found lie "was upon the eve of sustaining an injury in his relative standing in the navy, almost equal to the most severe sentence which this court could possibly inllict upon hun"? He next speaks ol the confidence he reposes in the Court, and gives a history of his connection with the expedition, the circumstances unoer which the command was offered to and accepted by liini, that a cabal existed in the squadron to thwart all the obipptl nf t}i*? MVn^ilitiitn aiit.a tkut l?? #li.J ? Iiimself and that he did not spare others "when the public service was to be promoted." The health of the squadron is next spoken of, having only lost eight men by disease during the cruise, and then follows a eulogy on Lieut. Hudson, for the sacrifice he made in serving under one beneath his rank, and "yet," lie says, "you have witnessed an attempt first to excite a jealousy between this officer and myself in relation to the discovery of the Antarctic land, and you have heard him subjected to an insulting cross-examination, which an observer of the proceedings correctly designated as savage." He next adverts to the fact of his having been 26 years in the navy, and serving his apprenticeship in the mercantile marine, and that he served in the old school of discipline, &c. He then proceeds to examine the charges of Dr. Guillou, and contends that the specifications charging him with withholding Guillou's charges against himself and Lieut. Ringgold, and contends that he could not liave been affected by it, whether the Secretary received them ten months sooner or later, as they could not have been tried till the return of the squadron to the United States. Hi- also contends that although the Doctor's report cannot be found on the files of the Department, they were sent by him with his letter of Oct. 20, 1H40. In relation to the charge of violating l)r. Guidon's rights by withholding f rom him the appointment due his rank, he contends that his general orders on which the charge is based, are net individual promises to Dr. Guillou; and then recounts the o|ien rupture of Dr. G. with his commander, Lieut. Ringgold, and says, "a little reflection might have ad tnonished him, that the assurance of receiving "impartial justice," would,* by reason of his improper readily pictured to his imagination something like a court martini, rather than promotion or advance of pay." lie next reviews the specification in which the "Quit the presence" interview at Honolulu with Dr. Guillou is laid. He flatly denies the Dr.'a version of the transaction; says from what had occurred between them it does not bear the mark of probability on its face, and is circumstantially untrue. He denies making the promise of giving the I>r. surgeon's pay at Washington; says he never crossed the threshold of his house at that place to his knowledge, and that Lt. Hudson met him shortly after the Honolulu interview agitated and excited and not very likely to be very accurate in his recollections. lie admits he arrested Dr. Guillou on the 14th of October and did not order him lo the U. S. for trial, but that on the 26lh of the same month he had permission by letter to return to the U. S. and funds were provided for his travelling expenses. He says It is not true he refused him a trial before the court then convened on board the Peacock, and if Lt. Hudson informed him so, he (Lt. W.) was not to be hound by the unauthorized declarations of Lt. Hudson. It is not proved he made an application to be tried: he would not ask the Court to believe "that the Dr. was very anxious to be tried by a court thus composed; threu of whom were my avowed friends, and one of them had preferred the charges on which he would be tried." He next says the visit of the Dr. at Honolulu was intended wantonly to provoke a controversy. lie next examines the charge of checking Dr. Guillou's extra pay, and contends that the Dr. did not keer a proper journal to entitle him to it. The defence then proceeds with the third charge entitled disobedience of orders, the attacks on and burning of the towns in the South Pacific, &c. He first recites his instructions from Secretary Paulding, and proceeds to analyze them, and comes to the conclusion that he is ' thereby authorized to punish thefts, recover the possession of stolen pro|>erty, anil to punish offenders, and MB invested with u discretionary authority of the widest scope : indeed situations were antici|>ated in the order, when ' necessity was to be my guide.' Obviously I had plenary oowers; and unless a clear, positive, and wanton ahuse is established, the charge must fall." He says he was required to visit the several places set forth in the specifications for the purpose of making surveys, scientific researches, and ascertaining their resources. The allegations of the affair at Clermont Tonnerre, were then reviewed. He says, " by this rliai nironuoua uoruiaaf inn if U'nilM tiPfm fhnf I fTDtfip the attack purely for the gratification of bloodthirsty feelings." He then says, it appears in evidence, that he spent much time in endeavoring to conciliate the natives with presents, &c., that violence was only resorted to when they attacked Mr. Couthouy. and threw missiles in his boat?he only fired on tnose who received the presents, and resisted the landing; and even directed Mr. I'eale to use fine shot instead of balls. If the crew had landed without firing, bloodshed would have been inevitable. The instruments were landed, nnd such observations made as the lateness of the hour would permit. "The evidence does notsustain the charge, nut indisputably establishes that a landing wrs sought in the discharge of my duties, and in obedience to my*orders." The next charge is the attack on Venna Lebre, and burning two towns. He says the natives captured a boat?that the expedition was sent to recover that and the property in her. The boat was surrendered, but the ell'ects refused. " To this specification the Secretary's order is a full answer. 1 am authorised to punish theft, and rescue and protect the property of those under my command." " I burnt the town without injuring any of the inhabitants, but still failed to secure the property. The iilinishinent was no! ilisnriinnrtinnule (? the nf. ience." " The third specification relates to the attack on the island of Malolo, killing the inhabitants, and burning the towns. The treacherous murder of the lamented Underwood and Henry, is a melancholy unification." lie then reviews the fifth specification, the attack on Upolo, and says, " to punish the inhabitants of the Island of Upolo, for the massacre of one of the crew of a whaleship, was a duty so incumbent on me for the protection of commerce, that it would have been criminal not to have inflicted chastisement; and it is hoped the benefit of the salutary lesson may be enjoyed by those whose useful pursuits may hereafter lead them hither " The next specification is the affair at Drummond's 1.1 i il. '? It in ovn/lcnc.. that nhi**'t iniitnu. Jir sajro, ** ? -. VWJVV> of the expedition was to punish the inhabitants of that island, for the murder of a seaman of the Peacock under my command. Did not the murder of ihi* seaman deserve the same chastisement as was risited on those who murdered the officers at Maolot" IERA r, is42. " In offering the answer to the third charge, tlie accused denies that he has disobeyed the orders of the Secretary of the Navy. He has, in the eiei'cise of his judgment and discretion, done that which he J still believes to have been'necessary and proper." The fourth charge?Illegally punishing men un(l?*r his command is iiiMfitind Uv llw> tuipiilmrrirpiiin. stances of the squadron, length of voyage, ?.Vc precluding the calling of Court Martinis, and that the ounishment was not us heavy generally as Court Martinis would have awarded for the offences. The charge of discharging'seamcn at 1 lonolni lu is met hy the assertion that " the exclusive jurisdiction is confined in the District Court of the t'niteu States." lie then took tt|> the specification charging lino with uttering fasehnod in liis Report to the Secretary, that he saw land on the morning of the 19t'ti.? First, the evidence and rejiort of Lt. Ringgold were quoted at h'ngtn; then the testimony of Lt Ahfen; then Gunner Williamson; then extracts front Lt. Hudson's report, and the testimony of Lt. Davis and Passed Mid. Kid, relating to discoveries on board the Peacock were given. "Upon what pretence is the attempt made, not only to blast my reputation, hut that of the country ! My an eflbrt to show o<i|jusion between Lts. Hudson, Ringgold, and my:telf. in claiming in our reports that land was seen on unti before the mornir.g of the 19th, because the explorers of an another nation claimed ihe disaovery on that day. lt has already been announced to lite world that we claim the honor of the discovery.? Whatever may he your opinion of me, do you not helieve that Lts. Hudson and Ringgold are made of sterner stuff than to prostitute their honor to carry out any dishonorable designs that I may have entertained?" He then entered into an elaborate defence of Lieut. Hudson's report, and closes with an unjust and undeserved tirade against the Judge Advocate. He then took up Lieut. Pinkney's charges, and, in answer to the first, contends that because Lieut. Pinkney and Knox did not hear him use the expression " God d?n it," the Court is bound to believe it was not used, although Passed Midshipman Blunt swears it was, because he "is one uf those young officers whose feelings of hostility towards me have so warped their judgment, that their testi IIIWIIJ in iv? uc ICLCIVCU wuii umiiy ^iaiu> in .iiinw* I anee." The second specification he sets at rest by saying his answer did not bring Lt. Pinkney in contempt with Lt. Knox In answer to the next specification,he says Lieuts Pinkney nearly lost his vessel by urskilfulness, and the circumstances were such as would excuse hini for using die words he is charged with, if he did use them. He attempts to answer the charge of refasing to pay for the repairs to the Flying Fish, on the ground that Lieut. Pinkney was bound to await his arrival at the Bay of Islands, when the greater part of the materials and labor might have been supplied from the Vincennes. The defence for not forwarding Pinkney'a letter to the .Secretary until after a lapse of 13 months, is Justified on the same grounds assumed in regard to Dr. Guillou's reports. He next examined the charge of confining Lieut. Pinkney to the Peacock until Dr. Palmer represented his health as suffering, and says that the charge is groundless?, as Lieut. Hudson swears he never gave ium unv orders so to confine liini. In relation to the last specification, imprisoning, flogging, tec., four marines who refused to do duty after their term of enlistment expired, he contended their detention was " essential to the public interest," and he was therefore justified in detaining thein by the Act of March 2, 1837, nnd secondly that they had received a bounty, and volunteered for the entire cruise, and therefore their terms had not expired, and he was justified in punishing them. A'c. 11*' next launches torth a hitter complaint against tin* manner in which files of the I tepartment are kept, anil again attacks the Judge Advocate, wliom he accuses of a high-handed violation of the records of the government, in taking papers from the files and destroying them. He next attacks Lt. i'inkney's defence on his own trial, charges the Judge Advocate with endeavoring to impeach all testimony thut did not go for his conviction, tec. and gives a sly poke at Secretary Upshur, for allowing Dr. Guillau access to the tiles of the Department to obtain evidence against him. He next disavows any feeling of personal wrong towards the J udge Advocate, and a.-cvibes his conduct to inexperience. _ lie charges him with acting as if he held the position of prosecutiug counsel in courts of common law, and felt it his duty to procure his conviction by bringing all the evidence he could against him, and suppressing that in lus favor. He charges him with destroying papers necessary for the prosecution on another trial, and necessary for his defence on this, and that lie refused to produce a " colored sailor" as a witness on another trial, on the ground that it was illegal, and would be an insult to the court, when lie was as competent testimony as any other. He next s|>eaks of a compliment paid him by Secretary Upshur before the National Institute nt Washington, and says, "such being the avowed sentiments of the Hon. Secretary, in respect to me, I can only ascribe the part he has taken ngainst me belore.this court, to a stern sense of duty on his part, which in the pursuit of what he considered justice, has overborne all private feelings and considerations." The whole concludes with an appeal to the court, and the expression of the conviction, that he must he acquitted on all the charges. At the conclusion of the defence, the room was cleared, and the Court remained in secret session until a quarter past three o'clock, when the doors were o|>ened, and the Court adjourned till Wednesday morning at ten o'clock. V. 8, District Court, In Bankruptcy?Before Judge Betts. Sept. 6.?Some millions of dollars warth of liabi lities were paid ofl to-day in the exceedingly " portable" money of the Bankrupt Court, emphatically carrying out the idea of " a new way to pay old debts." Among those who have thus " promptly" wiped out old scores, were N. W. Stuyvesant, John O. Coster, our old friend Dr. Feuchtwanger, and seventy others, many of them men of great note, and now rendered "saucy uble" by the magic process they hare passed through. Eighty-nine cases in all were called on the notice for final discharge (this being the first day for such after the recess), among them Joseph L. Joseph,Solomon L. Joseph, and Moses Ilenriqties, (house of Joseph iXc Co.) but objections were offered as related to them, and they hava not yet got rid of their four millions of troublesome debts, though no deubt they will be enabled to do so in a week or so, and go at it fresh again. Obiec lions wera also filed to the discharge of W. N. Criggsand J. II. Howard. The creditors of Newman had been allowed certain time in which to obtain ftestimony at Uhio?it has expired, and their counsel asked an extension, but the Court would not allow it, the matter looking a little like an effort at procrastination, which Judge B. said would not be permitted. One or two motion* were heard, and the Bankrupt Court sojourned. The September term of the District Court then opened. A jury was empannelled, and discharged to this forenoon at 11 o'clock. An inuiortant case in Bankruptcy relating to the estate of Barney Corse (a petitioner) will probably be the first jury cause taken up. Judge Betts announced that the trials hy jury would take precedence of other business?that the first three days in each week wolud be devoted to , admiralty, and other matters n|>pertaining to the , Distrist Court, and to arguments, and the three last days in each week to bankruptcy.

Clarke, while the latter was paying Ins fare on board the steamboat South America. He was arrested by officer Cocketaiv witli tin coat under his arm. The prisoner offered no defence, hut is supposed to be a regular steainbotft thief. Judge Lynch very properly sentenced him to the Penitentiary tor six months, and it is hojied that the kee|)er til lil.ickweli's Island will see that he lias u good stand for business while serving out his term. A |>ert looking girl of the pave front the Points, with light brown hair, and dark blue eyes, was tried lor stealing a silver watch from James Williams, while lie was in bed with her: which was afterwards found in her bed room tied round the bed jiost, with a bonnet over it.
