James is the son of a farmer, the offspring of healthy and reputable parents, who have a.nunverous firmly of robust children. Without any assimilable cause, he was suddenly deprived oflhe sense of heaiimt some ten years since, which was soou followed hv what was probably an attack of the ilry gangrene. This rapidly destroyed first the palate, the hones of the roof of the mouth, and then a considerable portion of the iipixr jaw, upper lip, and the win. le. of the nose, both bones and eartileite, as Well as integuments,. It would be difficult to imairine in what way a mor. unsightly deformity could he impressed upon the 'human face divine.' This frightful disease ceased its ravages on the face after several mantis, to renew tlu m again in other imrts of the system witli greater and mote destructive severity. Some two years ago, a " black s|H>tas Ihe intelligent mother of this most unfortuiiatr child told the writer of tbia?was observed und. r the nail of each big tor.

The integuments of tlie light side, near the centre of the ribs, and of the right eye, wire also affected with the same destroying complaint in its iucipiml stages.

In that year 1 sold a span of horses andtwo cows, and spent ihe whole of it, say $150, which only served to keep it back. 1 have used almost every thing I could hear of, without any great brnefit. In Jiriv last, a cure was attempted by a person who, likp all others, failed. The expense of all this has been at Irait $500. From about four inches below the shoulder, to about the middle of the fore arm, there have bren at least twen y holes, many of them as large as a silver dollar, and half an inch deep. In February, 1812, I accidentally came across a wrapper from a bottle of Biistol's Sarsapanlla, and made up my mind to try the medicine. On the 15th day of that monui, I commenced using it, and used a bottle a week for two or three months .when I Ibnnd myself to all ap|warance completely cured. At any rate, since that time I have not felt any pain Irom it. No sores have ap|ieared, and it teems perfectly sound, and 1 can labor with it as well as with the other arm. I am so well satisfied Of its superiority over every thing elie that I have tiled, that I most earnestly recommend sny |ierson to begin using it immediately who may be similarly afflicted.

The defendant had hired of him premises No. til) Canal street, which lie occupied as a millinery store and dwelling, and took a new lease in May of the present year. About the 18th of that month, he re-let (by consent of the landlord) to his brother-in-law, Mr. Walford, who was engaged in the same business with himself. Mr. W. testified, that he observed, a day or two after moviug in, that the air ot the house was exceedingly offensive, and, on examining, discovered that deleterious matter forced its way (hrough the wull of the area, and ran into the kitchen. A tine little girl, about 12 years of age, ut the time ill good health, was set to cleaning lie the floor.but was taken with vomiliinr and died next day, no doubt from the foul exhalation which had been received unon her lungs. lib father-inluw und his wife also became sick Irotn the same cause. He then went to Dr. M., stated the difficulty which existed, und suggested that the walls of the rear premises must have brokeh away, but the Doctor refused to do anything about it. In a day or two after, (the 11th or 12th June,) he moved, and while in the uct of doing so, called upon Dr. M., tendered the key and $43 for rent, which had accrued to that day?but they were not received. The present action is to recover $100 for one quarter's rent, from May to August, agreeably to the terms of the lease.

Kellum, late clerk of the 9th ward court. Alderman Lee wished to know how this man was to get his money, as Mr. Kellum refused to pay it, ana he believed, that he had been compiled to resign the office, because he was a defaulter to the corporation, and that since then, he had been aj>{HJinted by the party in power as one of the day officers of. the 1st ward. aij i it- r;D?.Ki? hud no business to place the money in the hand* of the clerk, and, therefore, if he had intrusted the money in his hands, it was his own lows tad the Common Council were not responsible. The clerk had collected the fees, it is true, but he had not collected them for the corporation. Alderman Pcrdy contended that as lie had collected the fees at the same time he received others, the corporation ought to pay it. Alderman 8mtth said that as Mr. helium had recently been appointed to an office under the Common Council, the difficulty might be settled by deducting the amount from his salary. .

Alderman Bams opposed it, a* it would tend rather to retard than expedite public business, and the resolution of Alderman Davtea was finally laid upon the table lor the present,by his own consent. A report and resolution to authorise the street commissioners to coiii|>el the gas company to light such |>arts of Kast Mroadway us ntaius have been laid tu, which was adopted. An ordinance to autliorise the Comptroller to pay all bills for extra watchmen, which have been approved and leased on by the standing committee of both Hoards, and also to create four additional i>oats in the third, and three in the fourth districts, near Washington square, was presented. A long argument here ensued, in which Aldermen CuoLtrs and Leonard advocated the establishment of the posts, and also the payment of the watchmen who had been placed on these posts by the Mayor during the tecent excitement in the 15th WHrd relative to burglaries. Alderman Itndkkwooi> was in favor of paying the watchmen who hud performed the raeenl service, hut was opposed to establishing the new |M>sts, us the expf nse was uncalled for. Al<l,tiii:tn Daviks stated that seventv-seven bur claries tad taken place in the immediate vicinity of his house in the snort space of a few weeks, at the time three new posts were established by the Mayor.

' President called the attention of the Rourd to th Ii rule,which expressly declares that no uiem. ti ill speak twice on the same subject. Some of tuber- bad already spoken half u dozen r about half an hour's unnecessary 'ion was finally divided so as to pat it of the posts first, which was u \ ote of fourteen to three, and the resoi . .o pay the watchmen who had been detailed bv the Mavor, was udopted unanimously. The sum of #300 was appropriated to pay expense* of showing tne French commissioners the harbor of New York on their recent visit. The Comptroller presented a report agreeably to request, that the sum of $2,242 had been paid to the Marshals selected by the Mayor to suppress the meat shops in accordance with a resolution of the Common Council. A communication from the Citv Inspector relative to cleansinR sinks, was referred to the Committee on Ordinances. This ordinance is intended to deprive the night scavengers ?t their present business, and turn the cleansing of sinks into the hands of the poudrette company. A resolution to authorize the Mayor to np|>oint a suitable person to enquire into all the violations of the city ordinances by |*wn brokers, second-hand clothes establishments, junk ahopa, Ate., which was relerred. The Chair stated that the following gentlemen were appointed by him on the part of this Hoard us die Joint Crotou Water Committee:?Aldermen Uavies, West, and Smith. The Croton Water Ordinance was then taken up, and the section relative to public pump was repealed. This leaves the pump* as they always were, to be repaired by the Corporation when necessary. Joijct Ballot.?Both Boards having assembled, they proceeded to joint meeting. Alderman Balis acted as "headsman" on the occasion. The resignatian of Charles Turner, clerk of the Commissioners of the Alms House was read and accented. Alderman Bali* moved that John L. Lawrence, Cornelius W. Lawrence, Samite) B. Buggies, Myndert Van Schaick. and J. PhillipsPhenix form the C rot on Aqueduct Board, and that John L. Lawrence be President ot said Board, with a salary of $>2l)0O l>or annum. The President is also to be Treasurer of the Board, and will be compelled to give bonds in the sum of #20,000. The other Commissioners receive no compensation. Alderman Lee moved that the name of Cornelius W. Lawrence be stricken out and Stephen Allen be appointed in his place, which was lost by ayes 7?nays 2t>. The resolution was then adopted, Alderman Lee voting in the negative. Alderman Balis moved that Haratio Allen be appointed Chief Engineer of the Croton Water Works. Alderman Lee nominated John B. Jervis. Alderman Leonard said he hoped that the mover of the first resolution would lay it on the table, as Mr. Jervis would still be kept in his office by the l'oininissioners who|hadcontract of the works as far down as Fortieth street. Alderman 1)aviks said that it was necessary that this appointment should be made, as the Common Council were anxious to fix a day for the celebra lion of this era, in the history of our city. Alderman Leonard said that it was small business to deprive Mr. Jervis of the credit and honor of his labors in this work just at the |>eriod when a public celebration was to take njace, and he moved that it be laid on the table, which was defeated by a vote of 14 to 9. The vote waa finally taken, and resulted as follows : ? For Allen ID. For Jervit 14.

More of Oris Ai.i.en.?A lying affidavit was presented to the District Attorney on Saturday, made by this notorious dealer in counterfeit money, which was a ?opy of one sent to Judge Oakley, in order to endeavor to get him to transfer the three indictments against Allen for trial, to the court ot Oyer and Terminer, and the case will be heard this morning, at ten o'clock. This affidavit contains a number of false statements, that Judge.Oakley, or Judge l\eni ii Hie case conies uciuiu nun, win please examine into, before such a request is grunted. There are some matters in the affidavit that will require further notice at some future time. In the mean time we have only tosay that this attempt Jo transfer this cause to the Oyer and Terminer in order to have an "unprejudiced trial," is all gammon, as Otis Allen never intends to be tried in any court, if he can get bail to get out. The " straw bail " once entered, for which the person now lies in prison on a charge of forgery, and the numerous attempts to obtain the release oi Allen, on habeas corpus, before nearly every Judge in the city, as well as the numerous postponements of the trial tor Irivolousand unfounded causes, all lend to show that tailing in his end before the Court <>t Sessions, lie now intends to play the same game before the Court of Oyer and Terminer. Abandonment and Bigamv.?Joseph W. Stent, an Englishman, and a car|ienterby trade, who resides at No. 50 Ttiird street, was yesterday arraigned before Justices Merritt and Stevens on a hearing of a case of abandonment, charged against him by his wife Emma, whose maiden name was Major, and to whom lie was married by the Rev. Mr. Kerfort, at Flushing, in May 1-lth, IKS*. It was proved that he abandoned her on the 22d of November last, and left her without means of support. He was defended by F. II. B. Bryan, Esq , who entered the novel and extraordinary plea that at the time Stent was married to Miss Major he had another wife living, whose maiden name was Mary Cardy, and to whom he was married at Frome, Somerset Co., England, on the 2d of September, 1821. This plea was entered by the counsel on the strange supposition that the statute of limitations would save Ins client from the State prison! The magistrates immediately held him to bail in the sum of $1,000. on a charge of liiffiimv nnfl the brother of his first wife. George Cardy, in the sum of 8300, as a witness, to appear at the present General Sessions, to sustain the complaint ngainst his hrother-in-law. Mr. Wm. Laitnbeer, ol 59S Broadway, justified in the sum of #1000 as security for Mr. Stent. His last wife states that she knew he had been married, and that his wife was living. but she had always neen led to believe that he han obtained a divorce from her. Stent is now living with his first wife, at No. 50Third street. He has thus got himself into a pretty 8cra|a-,between the cases of abandonment and bigamy, and the pe miliar advice of his counsel. The whole maiter was immediately sent to the Grand Jury. A Swui lak cask of Larceny.?Mr. Christian F. Kngel. of i>!9 Greenwich-street, and 1#2 Bowery, presented a charge of grand larceny yesterday, against John F. Blickdorn, and his sister Catherine, with stealing a quantity of jewelry, Arc , from his premises, on or about the 21st of August. A part of the property stolen was found in jiosseseion of John A. Markhart, of 1(17 Bayard-street, to whom it had been sold by Blickdorn. Catherine stated that she lived with Mr. Fngel, who, having no wife, took liberties with her, and gave the jewelpr. alleged to have been stolen, as a return for the favors so extended They were both committed to prison to answer the churges under trial. Bcrned to Death.?On Saturday evening, as several children were playing in (he house of Florence Mahony, at 150 Leonard-street, one of them, a son of Mr. Mahony, aged about a year, grasiied a box of loco loco matches that had been placed on a table in the room, when several of them exploded and seI lire to his Clot ties, ny which memm in- whs so severely burned as fo cause death on Sunday af ternoon.

Mr. McNeil is a worthy Scotsman, a respectable grocer, a fine specimen of ancient hospitality, kindness, and urbanity, and a favorite with the aristocracy and the |>cople. There is a tradition still told here?how some wags on the eve of the last war, made a bet with the unsuspecting Scotsman, that he would not,in the then stHte of the eity,walk through Ifroad street with the "Highland cap and feather-" lie got up from the festive board, he left unfinished the brave old wine, a minute haa scarcely elapsed, when the shouts and execrations of the multitude told those within of the danger so thoughtlessly ineurred. Our friend escajierl?but the unfortunate cap and feather were torn into a thousand atoms. Mr Cogdell is a teller in one of the tfhnks. the son of a revolutionary officer, remarkable for his attention to ilie graces?fur eh gam manners and literary avocations. His independence in the examination of accounts, and Inn keeping aloof from all partisan or log rolling cabals, lias fixed his election on so secure a basis that his friends made no exertions, and hence he was beaten by Doctor Thomas Y. Simons, the |>ort physician, a State office tilled by the Governor, witli a salary of $1000 per annum. Thus do we heap 'anomalous and equivocal offices on the same individual, As health officer, he is amenable to the board over which he presides, and the body to which that board would report any dereliction of duty on the part of the port physician. We have just sent him to a pleasant seat. Is the doctor a "contngionistl"?then lie may take compensation and rigidly forbid communication with vessels at the anchorage ground and the shore. Is the Doctor's honest convictions that the Quarantine lnws are a job, a farce, or the remnant of that kindred legislation, that made war on old women, witchcraft, wooden shoes and the I'ope 1 Then may he |>eniiit boats to approach and depart from said vessels, with as much sang troid as if such things were dreams or delusions. Of the other new members of Council, Mr Hopkins is .. fnwtlk,, luiil.ullln ..?.l In i and respectable. Mr. Cassinier Patrick ban been more tbnn once a popular member of the same body, lie has displaced Mr.Wm. Paiton, who would seem to have lost ground upon the charge of absenteeism. Mr. Mills, who has been made to make way tor Mr. Buist, ia a highly resectable merchant. It seems that it was urged against him that he is a "whig." Mr. Burnt is a lawyer of amiable character and resectable ac(|uirements, and goes to the Council unpledged to any clique, coterie, soiree, or party. Jt is likewise rumored, (hat if Judge Ayson he not so fur recovered as to enable him to resume the duties of the otlice ol Recorder, that the Honorable Ily.L. i'inkney will he a candidate, and that Mr. C. M. Kuriimn, now Cashier of "the Bank ( the State," will he his opponent. We had a literary sparring a lew evenings since, at a temiierance meeting, between Dr. Bachman, President of the Lutheran Church, and the Kevd. Mr. Barnwell, the iwstorof the fashionable Church of St. Deters. The Doctor, it was thought, did not know the Kevd. gentleman whs in the room, when iqion the occasion of readings letter which he had received through the post office, and purported to he Irom an Episcopal clergyman in aid ol the cause, playfully remarked, that as they seldom received much assistance froin that quarter, the present was of course highly acceptable: and when he got down, Mr. Barnwell addressed the meeting with animation and effect. He deprecab ' 'lie idea of making that Hoor the arena for dis|im....on, or lor the introduction of topics irrelevant to the question; protested against the practice of charging any class of religionists with hostility, and deprecated the attempt in hold up the Episcopal clergy as objects of " ridicule or sarcasm." When other gentlemen were home sipping their wine, the Episcopal clergy were active in this cause; and although they as a body were not " lecturers," it was known that for years mey wrre aasiuiious in us Buwmn oy exuonauons 10 their flocks, and by their individual example. At a subsequent meeting, the Revd. gentleman took occasion to say, that the "ecclesiastical" reasons that forbid his reverend brothers from taking a prominent part in these societies, would, he thought, give way in time.
