THE LATE THIAL OF SAFES AT THE FOOT OF A WALL STREET.?The billowing certificate as to the superiority of Rohertson t* Rich's Salamander 8ilea, i? sutmutad to the public as a simple statement of facts New York, August 30th. 1812. We the undersigned, attended by request a trial bv fi-e ol Robertson and Rich s halamander Safe and Scott's Fjtent Asbestos Safe. The trial was made in a furnace of great power built for the purpose, at the foot of Wall street, on the 26th insr. The pritKipal object was to test the fire proof qualities of Robertson k Rich . Sale. The safes were placed in a furnace and the fire lighted at quarter to I', A. M,. and continued till 1 P. M. In opening the furnace at that time, Scott's Safe, with its contents. was found to be completely destroyed, but Robertson k Rich s Safe to be in perfect Older; 4% the i.onat the lower part of Robertson k Rich s Safe was discovered to have melted off, leaving the salamander preiwration firm and entire; in removing the safe,before the lire wasi euiirel, eiliugui lied, the bottom was accidentally forced off by its adhering to the bars of the fnrnace, thereby exposing the tnnei case k> the fir. . ,.r (he pe|>ers were consequently burned and the remainder slightly aeorched. The heal w*a so interne that the wrought iron frame, the cast iron wheela of the aafe, and eren the bricka of the furnace melted, yet the greater part of the mahogany case remaina aoiinil and uninjund During the fire homa the fire ? aa Wurman, four alid a half h.ada of pine wood and ninety-an fimbria of charcoal were conaumed. The yireaervalion . f any of the papers in anch an intenae heat for fire honra ta concluaire eritleace that thia aafe would be proof against fire in the burning of anv atore or warehntiae, Judging from the reault of thia experiment, we think Robertrun ann Rich'a Safe equal to any yet inreuted for the preaeraationof books and papara from fire, and entitled to the confidence of the community.

The heat that is created in the chamber liasses between the linings of the two rareliers (or radiators as they are called] into the base at the bottom, and a current of air continually rushing through the tubes, which are left open at each end for that purjiose, carries a great amount of rarefied or warm air into the apartment. The purity and softness of the air in a room heated by this stove are peculiar and remarkable, the heat beiog diffused from a great extent of surface moderately heated.

FRIDAY MORI Washington Correspondence. Washington City, Sept. 6,1842. Contain Tyler?UJfice-huhlers Look out?A Storm coming?Appeal to New York Put riot ism on Monday night? Changeful the Departments?Classtfiration of Clerks?their tVives?Things at IVashington?Eulogy on IVoman?Boarding Houses? President Tyler's Opinion of the Herald?General James Gordon Bennett?His Destiny. Dear General :? That " the world is governed too much," is an adage which has hitherto passed for gospel, like many other old saws full of falsehood and deception that have been handed down by our grand-daddies; but Captain Tyler is about to point out the mistake. The spirit of the oldjfellow is at length up; his very hair begins to bristle a la porcupine, like Old Hickory's; his nose has arched out into a |>ertect eagle'a beak; he has taken to hard smoking, and has even been heard to say, " By the Eternal G?d !" There is something brewing, take my word for't, and before they are aware of it, he will begin to hurl the oflice-holdera of your city down the Tar|>eian Rock. Captain Tyler can bear with perfect equanimity, the vindictive attacks on his own reoutation hut lit1 is not the man to ixrmit his country, or the high station tie holds, to (>< dishonored. The insult offered to both at the Ashhurton dinger, has roused up the wliole nation, and the miserable iqiologies, explanations, backing out, tee. nte received with contempt. Fish is the only man who acted like an American, and it the others had the courage to insult their country in the presence of a British Lord, their miserable cowardice now in shrinking from responsibility, should degrade them still lower. 1 hope your great city will speak 011 Monday next in tones of thunder, and that its lion-voice, responded to by the whole country, may follow in the wake of the WinpiiL boon wader then her nuk and satisfy the world, tl at the tories of New York have no influence out of their money temples and dens of licentiousness and iniquity. | We ure to have sundry clianges here in the differ- ' ent departments, particularly in the War Office, and in that branch connected with the Indian service. Secretary S|>encer is as keen as a hawk, and has discovered the utter incompetency of many of the officers and clerks Old C , who has been in for some years, and who now holds in his hands, without bond or any sort of responsibility, a large amount of public money, and who is as pretty a specimen of the granny as you would wish to see, is sure to go. There are just 500 office-holders here that should be dismissed. 1 would dispose of them thus:? Make grannie*, and set to practising obstetrics, AO Let out as harlequins, man-monkej s and ourang outangs, AO To be exhibited ai natural curiosities, and disposed of to private Cabinets, , . AO Hired to Tom Marshall to lecture practically on the evils of intemperance, ... 50 To bedisposed ot for old clo' and cold wictuals, 300 W In every instance where these fellows have wives, the President should appoint her to the vacancy; nine out often of these ladies are handsome, intelligent, industrious, working all day for a lazy husband, and then writing lor hint night after night to bring up his arrearages. If his bad conduct is such us to cause hint to be menaced with dismission, his wife goes in tears to the Secretary or Executive, and by her aflecting pleadings averts his fate. Oh ! the man that can treat with cruelty such warm and generous affections?who, for the gratification of his own indigencies, can entail poverty, anxiety and suffering on his bright-eyed wife and the little dar iiiiga round nrr cnccrirsi nearin?is unworiny lllf name of man, and sliouKI be hissed and scouted from the world. (Jive me the man that knows how to love a woman?that appreciates the sex?who languishes for her blandishments and feels that her smile, either as wife or mistress, is essential to his happiness; give me such a man?even if he be touched with libertinism?and I feel that he is worth ten times as much?may be trusted ten times as far as your heartless, careless, lazy prodigal husband who permits a brow once fair and beautiful to pale under his neglect; a step once agile as a fawn's to fall listlessly on the floor, and an eye, once beaming in hope, to grow dim and lustreless amid its tears. Alas! there are hundreds of such cases here, and they hang like a pall over the retired Btreets oi our city. Many oi the details are heart-rending in the extreme, and I venture to say there is no place in this world where woman is so much "a suffering angel," as in this gay. but miserable metropolis ? Very many of the public clerks here are accomplished, upright, exemplary men, who work like machines, and do not get half paid; but they live with difficulty, die in debt, are sometimes compelled to be buried by contribution, and then the common resource of their bereaved widows is a boarding house. And who does not know the history of these establishments in Washington 1 A hard struggle for credit to begin with?a little run of custom?a falling off?bills, duns, constables, distraints, sacrifices, ruin, broken health andslanaer? lor this viper never fails to strike its fanes into the fame of an unfortunate widow, at the head of a boarding house. If she he beautiful, so much the worsefforher ; if she have a daughter, though she be pure as the shrined Madonna herself, still the foul breath of envy is on her fame, and it withers before the innocent maiden dreams that a light word has been whispered. Such is Washington, my dear General. If there be a place in this Union precisely like it?where there is so much talent, dissipation, beauty, misery, poverty, calumny, and real virtue beset with temptations, I am yet to know it.

Government Hutnlmga?Colt's Submarine Explosions. How Mr. Colt or his friends can claim the least novelty for his method of blowing up vessels by means of galvanism or electricity, is past o?r comprehension. As far back as eight or ten years ago, Professor Hare of Philadelphia, published a pamphlet on the blasting of rocks under water, by the same means. But, if Mr. Colt had been a chemist, and had read the "Journal of the Franklin Institute," and the " London Mechanics' Magazine," he would have seen he had been superseded in his plan many years, even in England, where it is well known; the wreck of the Royal George, at Spithead, in the English channel, has been raised bv the same means. Besides, every American who lias ever been to London, and attended the experiments at the" Royal Polytechnic Institution," will bear testimony to the fact, that every day at a certain hour, a model of a ship was moored in a large artificial bason of water, beneath which a pmall bundle of powder was placed, in connection with wires that passed ut to a galvanic battery, some twenty feet distant, and when the plates of the battery were immersed in acid, the ship was blown up. Everv one who saw this daily and simple experiment knew perfectly well, that if this could be done at twenty feet distance, it could be done at twenty miles on. Then, what under heaven has Mr. Colt invented! Just

nothing at all. Yet we learn he has picked up the notion from an<)ther party who was said to be a chemist, and whispered it about as a great secret. The Sun newspaper augered it forth as a great and original discovery! And Mr. Wise, who may know Blackstone pretty well, yet like many other good lawyers in Congress, does not understand scarcely the first horn book in chemistry. When told privately by Mr. Colt of his great discovery, it is said, he boasted " he could set with a glass in nis hand on shore, and blow up an English fleet!" The Humbug took. A vessel was blown up opposite the Battery, at an expense of $6N00, as we learn, to the government. And although it is known if one vessel can be blown up by having powder placed immediately under it by this means, any number can be disposed of in the same manne, it was not enough ; a similar expense must be repeated at Washington, and as though humbug was the order of the day with law giving members, they passed in Congress a joint resolution to have the same experiments continued, at an enormous expense, and call it "Colt's Submarine Battery," as though he had invented the " Galvanic Battery," which is near one hundred years old. and never used in water at all, but always on dry land, and in connection simply with wires, in connection therewith passing between the battery and powder which is he exploded, to the method of doing which Mr. Colt has no more claim than he has to be the inventor of gun powder itself. The difference between Dr. Jones's invention and Colt's so called invention or discovery, and to which the New York Sun at one time alluded, amount* to | i TP XT L r 11 1\ X *JING, SEPTEMBER 9, 18 this, thut the former has accomplished or invented a thing that is new, and which no one has ever done before him, or possesses a knowledge of at present, besides himself By his discovery he can blow upu vessel at any reasonable distance, say about us fur oil'as Colt can, and without the aid of galvanism or of a galvanic battery at all. The satne principle that governs the explosion of his shells, will also produce this result. The inventor may he asked, it this be a fact, why he has not pressed his claims upon the attention of the Government. To which he replies, that so far as galvanism or electricity can be applied (on not Colt's plan, but called his,) or any other plan euimhle of nriMlueinir aimilur ........If. ... . applicable to harbordefence, for reasons which will be stated. As regards the more important anplication of Dr. Jones's principle to explosive shells, he never tried but a single experiment, and that under the most unfavorable circumstances, and at his own expense The Colonel who was deputed to witness its operation, wmi himself an inventor of a shell, and at the same time took under charge the ex|>eriments of another inventor in the name line. The consequence was, that after a single trial, as stated, Dr. Jones withdrew, and has never done any thing in the premises since. It is extremely doubtful whether any thing of the kind would be rewarded by the Government except in case of actual war. If we are asked for reasons why neither galvanism or other means to produce the suie.e result, cun be relied on for harbor defence,?they are simply as follows:?In deep water, of twenty or thirty feet, no powder laying on the bottom of it, will blow up u vessel over it, owing to the pressure of the incumbent water, the expansion being effected latterly by the ignited powder. In . all Colt's exi>eriments.we have been told he sus|>ended his powder, either immediately tied to the bottom of a vessel, or suspended it by a buoy, and placed his vessel over it. Besides,. un enemy entering a harbor would be careful to have the channel raked in advance, by tide rakes, by which means the connecting wires would be torn up. Besides, when lying in wait,the wires, by a shin's anchor might be drawn up. In such cases no explosion could happen at the time, or afterwards. Not so with Dr. Jones's plan, uny attempt at removal would produce an immediate explosion without the further agency of any other party. Besides, it is known in the galvanic plan the wires have to be coated, or enclosed in some water-proof substance, and if the connection becomes the least broken, or the wires exposed for any length ot tinia, it is impossible afterwards to discharge the spark through them by means of the battery, and all has to be taken up and repaired. Not so with Dr. Jones's plan. Has Mr. Colt ever let the galvanic wires lay under water six months, nnd then attempted to discharge the powder! 1 his can be done on Jones's plan. But all these objections aside. How is a channel a mile wide ana twenty feet deep to be detended by any of these means! Suppose a vessel to enter, of 50 feet beam. Then we must have a barrel or two of powder laying in the channel, clear across it, and on the bottom, within fifty feel of each other. This would renuire more than one hundred barrels of powder; and then it is not certain a vessel might not pass up in day time between two of them, laying 50 feet apart, and be unhurt. And if the wipes got wet or rusty, no explopion at all could be had. nnd the one hundred barrels of powder would be useless. But sunnose a vessel chose a dark night to pass, and put out all her lights, how would tnose on shore see when to immerse the zinc nnd copper plates in acid! (called in Congressional parlance "Colt's Marine Battery !!!") but known lor near a century as a common galvanic battery, in one of its forms Might not they, on waking up in the morning, find the vessel above Wise or Colt's stand on shore] If such a thing was at all feasible, would we not find France disposed to fortily her harbors by this means against the steamers and ships of Great Britain! And the latter make arrangements to do the same thing against France? We are always pleased to see original invention rewarded, but see no reason why large sums of Government money should be given away on objects not original in themselves, and which promise no permanent utility, if they were so. We shall notice some other things in our next with regard to war, men, and measures, and subscribe ourself your obedtflnt servant. An Observer. V. 8. District Court. Before Judge Betts. Srrr.7.?Andrew B. Haxton und others vs Barney Corse.?This was the first jury trial in bankruptcy. Mr. Corse is a petitioner for the benefit of the act. In his schedule he had placed an item of $100,001) a* due on a pond and mortgage to Israel Corse, 149 East BrOftdvifey, at the game time remarking that the property for which the bond and mortgage had been given, was subsequently sold by him to Jona. Thorne, who agreed to settle the mortgage, and it was not probable the petitioner would ever be called upon in respect to it. This entry in the schedule was declared by the plaintiffs. (forming a majority in number and amount of creditors,) to be "a false and fictitious debt." A jury trial was solicited instanter by the petitioner, and now the issu?. In opening proceedings, a question arose as to which party should act in the affirmative. The Court decided, that as the petitioner had sworn to his schedule being correct according to the best of his knowledge and belief, the burthen of proof to the contrary is thrown upon the creditors; and the latter consequently appear as plaintiffs in the case. Israel Corse, (father of Barney,) was living at the time of the petition being presented, which was in February last, but since deceased. His widow, Mrs. Abigail Corse, (step-mother of the petitioner,) a|>neared in court. Some discussion arose as to whether testimony taken in the case before a commissioner, could be received in evidence, and the Court decided that it was admissible. The testimony of Mr. Barney Corse, (petitionerA was then read. He states that his father, Israel Corse, died on the 31st March last. He was in partnership with his father from 1821 to 1830. They were in the hide and leather business at 14 Jacob street. On the 10th June, 1828,deponent, (and his wife Mary E. Corse,) executed a mortgage, accompanied by a bond for $100,000 to Israel Corse. It was on fourteen houses and lots, viz. nine in Cliff street, two in Ferry, two in Vandewater, and one in Pearl. The principal part of the property came to him from Samuel Leggett. Mr. Israel Corse furnished the money to purchase the property, and improve it to that amount. The main i?rt of the property had been purchased previous to petitioner getting it, by Samuel Leggett of Israel Corse. It |>assed through Mr. Leggett to Barney, as it was doubtful whether or not Mrs. Corse would sign the deed to the latter, as she was suspicious and careful of her interests in relation to her dower. In lieu of her dower. Israel Uoree gave her a bond, securing to her the house in Vandewater street, in which they at that time resided, during her life?the furniture was to be her's outrighi, and he was to gi ve her the sum of #2000 in the event of her surviving him. The property between Jacob and Pearl streets was mostly unimproved at llic time?it was part of the Roosevelt estate, and had a sugar hou.*e on it?the house on Pearl was 333, the same which stands there now, and the house on Jacob street ia I he same. Petitioner agreed that the rents should go to M r. Israel Corse in the way of interest, and all the taxes and other expenditures relative to them were paid by Israel. There was considerable delay in yetting the buildings up, owing to Cliff street not being immediately opened. After keeping the properly in his nam* for five or six years, Harney transferred it to his brother-in-law, Jona. Thome, the latter giving him #5000, and agreeing to settle the mortgage, half of which petitioner gave to his sister, Mrs. Thome. lie did so by direction of his father. The name of the firm was Israel Corse and Son, which was perfectly sound. The petitioner never had property of his own. except a house at the corner of Ferry and Jacob streets, which he sold for #6,500, and lost the proceeds by being drawn into loan9 and speculations. Israel Corse was worth #130,000 to #200,000 at the time of buying the real estate. In 1831 Israel Corse withdrew from the firm, and Jona. Thame went in with Barney, they continuing the business together. They remained about ayear, having made #1000 overtne expenses of their families. Jona. Thorne assumed the debts of the firm, and Israel Corse went in with him in the spring of 1832, under the firm of Corse Ac Thorne. In July, of that year, petitioner stopped payment, owing #100,000. and having #150,000 in assets of Texas serin ann other securities. In March, 1833, he assigned to Edward Curtis, present collector of the port, who has made a dividend to the creditors since of6 or 7 percent. The household furniture of |>etitioner was included in the assignment. It was ?ut up at auction, Hnd bought in by Mr. Samuel .#e|?gett for the benefit of petitioner and his family, l?etitioner having married a daughter of Mr. Leg gett. The testimony of Mrs. Abigail Cow ww then rend She says in it she remembers, with sorrow, the time of the transfer to Mr. Leggett. Her hus- I band (Israel Corse) told her he had a gaod offer for 1 the unimproved land he had bought of the Roo?e- I elt estate, and wished her to sign the deed. She 1 was finally induced to do so from his telling her that he did not mean to build on it, and offering her, in addition, the right of a house, the furniture, and 1 IE It A 42. $2000. She would not have signed, had she known | he was going to build, ^'he transfer and mortgage was a m -re sham, to eheat her out of her dower.? liar husband oftentimes told her, afterwards, that the idea originated with Samuel Leggett [this, Mr. Leggett in Ins testimony denied.] She also accused Harney of having influenced his father to leave her little or nothing in his will. After other testimony and summing ui> of counsel, the Judge gave a clear and extended churge to the Jury, during which he remarked that a verdict rendered against the i?et.tioner would debar him from a discharge under the act. The Jury, after being out all night, came into Court yesterday morning with a declaration that they could not agree, utid were discharged ? We understand there were nine against and three in his favor. For creditors, Messrs. J. W. Gerard and Theo. Sedgcwick?For defendant, Mr. W. C. Wetmore. County Court. Judge Ulshu'ffer, (lirst Judge) in the chair. Skit. S.?The Chairman stated that the notices would have informed the members the object lor which they had been called together. On the 9th August last, he received from the General Sessions a copy of the presentment of the Grand Jury affecting the conduct of certain Justices, and lie had fhrniirht if iirnntT to null fh?* ('ttiirl in nrrl#?r that members might take such action as they may see fit. He hesitated name time to call the meeting, be cause he saw by the papers that the presentment had been communicated to the Common Council, but finally concluded to do so. Is it, said he, the pleasure of the board that the presentment be read ? Aldermun Jones moved for the reading. The document is fumiliur to our readers?it accuses Justices Parker, Stevens, Matsell and certain of the Aldermen of having libera ed prisoners from Blackwell's Island, on or about theday of the spring election, having them brought into the city, Arc. Alderman J. also moved (after debute) that Matthew C. Patterson, Hsq. counsellor ut law, be requested to ascertain it sufficient evidence can be produced aguinst the Justicesto sustain an impeachment, <\:c. The Mayor remarked that he went to Blackwell's Island with Justice Taylor when the examination took place, on which the presentment was founded. On looking at the prison book, he saw no more discharges at the period complained of than at other times. Some of the members were for Mr. Whiting be ing employed instead of Mr. Patterson, but tliat did not appear to accord with what had already been projected. The excuse was that Ins duties at the Sessions and the Oyer and Terminer, required all his time. It was finally ordered that Mr. Patterson, [who was formerly the Whig Alderman of the First Ward] should report to the first Judge when he had made the necessary enquiries, and the Court adjourned without day. [The Judges of the Sessions were not present.] General Session*. Before the Recorder, Judge Lynch and Aldermen Carman and Bounell. James It. Whiting, Esq., District Attorney. Sett. 8.?Case of Otis Allen.?This was the day fixed for the trial of Otis Allen, the counterfeiter, and his counsel appeared and stated that none of the witnesses who had been subixinaed were in attendance. He then read an affidavit of the service of the subpamaes, and asked for an attachment to be issued to compel the attendance of the witnesses before named. This affidavit is signed by Joel W. Moore, who we understand from officer A. M. C. Smith, has served a term in the New Jersey State prison. There being no record of this fact in court however, his affidavit could net be rejected. The District Attorney stated, that as eounsel for prisoner had asked for an attachment for the witnesses subpomued by prisoner, and an affidavit had been presented of the proper service of the subpo'naes, lie could not object to a reasonable adjournment of the trial, as in the case of Palchin, in the city of Brooklyn, the proceedings were all set aside by the Supreme Court because the cause was brought forward without a|Jowing one of the parties an adjournment after an attachment had been ordered for the witnesses. Judge Lynch stated that lie objected to further postponement, from the fact that the cause had been tin four tmwn nnH pitch tim#? mi nrlmiirnmpiit had been granted on account of the absence of witnesses, but under the circumstances the request must be granted. 1 he Recorder concurred with him, and the cause was set down for Tuesday of next week. In the meantime, no doubt, an attempt will be made to obtain bail for Allen under a writ of habeas corpus It will be remembered,however,'that|no single Judge | can grant bail to a person indicted while the court is in session. The application must be made to either the courts of Oyer and Terminer or General Sessions. Attempt to Steal ?A boy a^ed about 15 yenrs, who was found in tiie store of Frederick Madison, 214 Greenwich street, on the first of last month, under circumstances that induced a belief that he had entered to steal, enterered a plea ofguilty by advice of his counsel Porter, Esq., and the Court sent him tn the House of Refuge. Trial of Thomas Henry. ? This man stands impleaded with John Williams alias English Jack, who has been tried and convicted for having in his possession and attempting to pass a $3 counterfeit note of the Atlas I3ank. on Mr. Morehead, of 331 Grand street, on the 15th of April last. Henry was in company with Williams, at the time the latter passed the note, but it was not proved that he had me bill in his posse.-Hion. ihe only suspicious circumstance against him waH, that when Williams was arrested, Henry made his escape, but was immediately caught. 7 he jury returned a verdict of not guilty, and he was remanded to prison to be tried on a charge of pick pocketing, for which he has been indicted. 7Vi?/ of IVillinm Williame for For eery in the fecund degree?This rogue who is just out of Auburn state prison, was tried for passing a $10 note at the box office of the Chatham Theatre, on the evening of July 28th. Joseph A. Jackson was in the box office at the time, and as soon as he discovered the note to be a counterfeit, he went into the secondftier of the Theatre and found Williams, who he charged with passing the note. He denied all knowledge of it, and said he had given six shillings for his ticket. Jackson then told him that the price of tickets was only four shillings, and that if he had passed the note he had in his pockets, the change which consisted of six $1 notes of the Hamilton Bank, two of the Manufactures'Bank, and one of the Ballston Spa Bank, with fifty cents in silver. Jackson thrust his hand into one of Williams' pockets and found five of the notes, and on searching liirn the exact change given by Jackson was recovered. He was defended by J. S. Bates, Ksij., but the case was too desperate to effect an escape. The jury returned a verdict of guilty, and the uourx sentence* mm to nve years. The court was not aware that the rogue had been in State prison, or he would in all (probability have been sent up for ten years instead of five. Antanft on the celebrated Job Hatkett.?Charles Rumley and William Prentice, of Chatham street were tried for assaulting and beating Job Haskell on the 25th of April. It apjieara that Job was passing up or down Chatham street, when he was accosted by Prentice with a request to buy old clothes. Job refusing, Prentice struck him, and Job went into him fists, boots and heels, when Humley interfered and gave Job a bulger alongside of the head with some " foreign substance," as Job called it, that looked like 11 brush. Several witnesses con firmed the evidence of Job. The defence, conducted by William Shaler, Esq., offered to prove good character on the part of his client Prentice, but the court thought that that question was not pertinent to the issue. Jon Haskkm., haq. then addressed the jury. He said that his object in this prosecution was to make an example of these men, in order that strangers can walk through Chatham strest without being assaulted by old clothes men. That in defending himself from the assault of Rnmley,. he had only knocked him twice while he was down, and that Prentice, who struck him with the brush, lived some doors from the place where ho met K urn ley?{Mr. Shaler, Km., here interrupted Job, and asked the court whether the coniplaioant had a legal right thus to address the jury). Job replied, that i( the gentlemen of the jury were guided by the advice of the legal gentleman who had just interupted hint,they might be led wrong, aa the gentlemau and the public well knew, by the decision of the Supreme Court, and the Court of Errors, that his "hold over" doctrine was not the exact thing. If they are not guilty, gentlemen ol the jury, do not convict them; if otherwise, J trust you will. I have only to say that I would not take such a blow again, as Prentice gave me with the brush, for a million of money. And now I address myself to the Conrt-1 have no vindictive feelings to urge me on, and from the fact that Prentice's wife, who is only about 20 years of age, applied to me, before the trial to let him off, I hojie the Court will show mercy to him if convicted, and I have no doubt the jury will bring him in guilty, sa I consider him less criminal than Rumley. I hone, therefore, for the sake of his wife, the Court will let i hirnoftrafly.

Banks testified that Dutcher had boarded with him, mid that he owed him money?that they had some dispute about the balance due him, and on leaving Keeler's store in the evening he met Dutcher, when he knocked him down with a club and robbed him. He also said that he met Dutcher again, the same evening, a short time alter the alleged robbery, when he charged him with stealing the |>ocket book. Dutcher then clinched him again, and they had another fight in the street. Banks here stated that lie then obtained a candle to look for the pocket hook, and u|>oii being question why he looked for the pocket hook at the second affray when he was certain he lost it at the first, he stammered and stuttered through the answers until he finally denied what he previously had said about looking lor the pocket book and money. A colored man named Stokes, who took the witness stand, with his hands clinched like a negro parson, said that he saw Dutcher with a large club in liia hand (in tllP tiluivo mninir itsuuimia In i robbery, and that he saw butcher and lianka clinched together, and Ihitcher buck liiin. The detence, conducted by H. M.

This was alter Hanks had been assaulted by butcher. The jury' were absent for nearly an hour, and being unable to agree, they were discharged. butcher's counsel then withdrew his plea of not guilty to the highway robbery and entered a plea of guilty of assault and battery, which was accepted aud recorded by the court.

Alexander, the murderer of Mr. hougee^ appears in the Bardstown, Ky., Gazette, expressing a decided conviction of ins insanity. The writer says he was informed by a gentleman well acquainted with the family, that Alexander was engaged to be married to a young lady in or near Huntsville, Alabama; but when he went down to fulfil his engagement, his betrothed refused to marry him for some frivolous reason. This disappointment seems to have unsettled his mind, for ne gave unequivocal signs of mental alienation before he left home for Philadelphia.
