Steamship Great Western?.Defalcations In England, Ac. Ac. The Caledonia arrived at a quarter past nine Wednesday lorenoon, at Boston. wit. w fusi^r nas rcccivcu luiuiuiauuu mai nir Ashburton Treaty was ratified by the British Government on the 14th October. The four pound loaf of bread was selling in London on the 13th ult, at seven pence. Money in London was plentier than ever, and cotton in Liverpool was down an eighth. The steamship Great Western was put up at public auction, at Bristol, on the 16th, but the bidding being too low, she was bought in by the Company for ?40,000, and the Directors were instructed to treat for her sale by private contract. The fall of rain in Bombay during 10 days previous to the departure of the mail, had been very great.? It wasstated that the overflowing of the Ganges had done considerable injury to the indigo crop. Fanny Elssler had arrived at Vienna, and is as much feted in her own country as she was in the United States. From the manufacturing districts we continue to receive very unsatisfactory reports as to the operations of the factories and mills, while the Liverpool t_ *?tton market remains dull and inactive. During the past fortnight the transactions have been on such a very limited scale as to aflord no scope for remark. The late explosion of the Manchester Bank has tended much to paralyze trade. Mr. Featherstonhaugh, one of the commissioners who explored the Northeastern Boundary on the part of Great Britain, in 1840, undertook in an after dinner speech at Plymouth, on last week, to defend the treaty lately concluded between England and the United States. He expressed it a* his opt,u_. >u. -?..i ... ,i?- i?i i 1 111VU 111(11 I lie OCUICIIICIll t Hit I ll?u ucrll indue, wu? the best for both parties that could be made. He strongly condemned the attacks made upon the terms of the treaty by the English press. Accounts from Algiers of 25th September, mention another unexpected check of the French arms. Gen. Cliangarnier, with a force of 2500, invaded the territory of tribes on the western frontier of Oran, as yet unvisited by the French. The natives met them bravely, and engaged them two whole days in an uninterrupted series of csmbats. The Leipsic Gazette mentions the existence at Bres'au, of a society of Communists, professing po-4 litical principles akin to those of the Chartists in England, which had excited the suspicious attention of the Silesian government. The American Tariff and the Ashburton Treaty continue to be prominent subjects ot discussion in the Paris journals. The French frigate Creole, which was sent to Tripoli to demand satisfaction for an insult received by a French officer, returned without effecting the purpose. The "Augsburg Gazette" of the 12th inst., states that letters from Belgrade represent the new government as having established a system of terror throughout Servia. Arrests continued to be made, and amongst others the Bishop Shabacz had been incarcerated. The Emperor of China has at length been heard of. He boasts, in an imperial edict, that a great officer called Chintae, in a recontre with the English forces, "put to death all the white barbaiians, and seized alive many of the black rebels." A good deal of public attention has, during the last ten days, been directed against the Chartists taken prisoners during the recent disturbances in the manufacturing districts. Special Commissions have been held in the counties of Chester. Lancaster, and Stafford. A letter from Vienna statea that the town of Gross-Kanischa in Hungary was much damaged by four shocks of an earthquake on the 19th of September. The Castellano of Madrid mentions the death of a priest at the age of 112, and states that for several years preceding his death he made seven meals per day, smoked in the same period 21 segars and took half an ounce of snuff The French steamer Lavorisier, of 220 horse power, was list off Corsica, near Ajaccio, about the beginning of the month. The crew were saved. The estate of Earl Ducie, in Gloucestershire, which is said to be worth upwards of ?300,000, is advertised for public auction in May next. Ondit?that overtures have been made by an influential party in China, to the British authorities in that country, the objects of which are to depose the Emperor, to establish another form of government, and to enter, should the revolution succeed, into terms of amity with Great Britain, both political and commercial. Swift, the American diver, took a leap from the yard of a vessel at Scarborough, on Saturday se'nnight, and again very narrowly escaped with his life. The King of Hanover.?It is said that the King has not entirely recovered from the illness which seized him at Dusseldorf. The death of Rear Admiral William Butterfield, of the Red, took place at Portsmouth on the 3d inst. Several parcels ot American cheese were oflered, and sold at 36s 6d to 46s 6d per cwt., duty paid, for inferior to middling quality; whilst a few lota of "good" brought 50a to 54a per cwt., duty paid.? Liverpool paper. The Prua-ian State Gazette announces the marriage of the Prince-s Mary, daughter of Prince William of Pruss'n, with the Prince Royal of Bavaria, on the 5ih. The Prince of Bavaria was represented by the Prince ol Prussia. The negociations of England with the Austrian and other German governments, for the transit of the ovciland India mails, by way of Trieste, ?5cc., are, as we are assured, nearly concluded.?Ltiptir Gazette. The following is given as the actual damage done by the late Liverpool fire:? 10,797 bales of cotton, 12,987 barrels of turpentine, 180 barrels rosin, 39 casks tallow, 60 tons oil, 145 tons hemp. 14 1-2 tons flax, 200casks beef, 3224 barrels flour, 800 sacks flour, 5 tons coffee, 5 tierces coffee, 57 casks tiucal, 14 cases tincal, 108 cases quercitron bnrk, 60 casks horn tips, 37 tons logwood, 54 double bales madder, 416 barrels Indian corn, 6 packages India rubber, 3 crates teazles, and several packages and parcels of drugs.

Mr. Wheaton, American Minister to the German Commercial and Customs' Union, who has been attending the Congress o! the Union at Stutigardt, has returned to his post at Berlin, where the nepoturns commenced by him will be continued during the ensuing winter. Ftiist Fkcits of thk Nkw Tariff.?During the past week large quantities of American and Canadian beef and i*>rk hare been exhibited for sale in this town, at 3U per lb The pork is reported to be juicy and w II flavored ; whilst the beef, though acknowledged to be of good quality, is complained of as being rather too salt lor immediate use. The demand tor these articles of provision has been sufficiently encouraging to the importers, so that a continuous supo'y of them may now be looked for.? inoiffer Guardian, m* E NE' NEV [Corropoiulence of the Hernld] London, Oct. IS, 1842. Daring the part wcrk we have been quite inun dated with American news, verifying the old adage, it never rains but it pours. The Koscoe, which sailed from New York on the 7th Septemb-r, arrived at Liverpool on the Kith instant; and the Stephen Whitney and Southerner, which sailed on the 14th, arrived on the 11th. The Great Wesiern arrived at Hristnlon the night of the 12th. at half-past eleven. By her, New Yotk papers to the 29th September were received, being fifteen days later than the pre vious advices. The Great Western brought home thirty-seven passengers, amongst whom was Viscount Morpeth, who returns after his twelve months tour on th- new continent, in excellent lieahn and spirits. His Lordship proceeded immediately on his landing forChaisworth 'o join the family circle ass-mbled to meet him. The Acadia, from Boston and Halifax, arrived at Liverpool on the evening of th 14th, at 9 o'clock, after a run of thirteen days from Boston and eleven from Halifax. She brings thirty-four passengers. Uer date* are only one day later than those received by the Bri'tsh Queen. The Hritish Queen, which is now on her homeward voyage, is expected to arrive at tiouthampton about this day week. The affairs of the Royal West India Mail Steam Packet Company are in a very queer s'ate, but it is hardlv expected they can hang together long. The postponed general meeting recently held does not Bppear to have strengthened the confidence of the stockholders us to the ultimate success of the undertaking; for the shares bear nearly a nominal quotation and sales cannot be effected even at the reduced rate ofjCIO per share,and yet these could not be purchased for 50 some time ago. A further call has been made of ?10 per share,which is quite a settler for many, and there are not a few who would gladly get out of the concern altogether if they could possibly do so without further loss. Four of the di rectors have resigned, viz: Messrs. J. Cowan, H. Davidson, W. S. Marsnall and P. M. Stewart, Esqs. And there are yet no applications for the appointment. The only person I have heard named is one Capt. Nelson, one of the brothers of the Trinity House, who it is said is to have the chief management. A special meeting for the election of four directors is appointed for the 8th November next. The company have been more successful in their last trip or two than heretofore. The Tay, which arrived on the 13th, brought nearly a million on freight, anu me ufr, wnicn saneo on ine join, was uooncu full, having sailed with 1M passengers, 3(1 of whom were for Madeira, paying the full fare to St. Thomas's. So many passengers having been refused, an extra packet is to be despatched in a few days, and 60 berths have already been engaged by her. Commander Andrew Drew, whose name is so well known from the active part he took in the destruction of the Caroline steamer on the Lukes in Canada, has been appointed to the corvette Wasp, 18, now fitting at Chatham. Lablachs is dangerously.ill at Paris of inflamation of the chest. Mr. O'Connell has come forth in a "hereditary bondsmen" letter to the people of Munster. urging the inrolment of repealers, with what variety he may. ' Justice to Ireland," he says, "requires these things:"?"First, the total extinction of the tithe rentcharge; secondly, the protection of Irish industry, and tne promotion of Irish manufacture ; thirdly, the fixity of tenure of land, in order to encourage agricultural improvement, and recompense the tenant for his labour and capital; fourthly, a complete representation of the people in the Commons House of Parliament, by the greatest pos-ible extension of the suffrage, and by the protection of the ballot : fifthly, the abolition orentire beneficial alteration of the poor laws; sixthly, the Iteneul of the Union." The report of the Duke of Newcastle being in gTeat financial difficulties, is n w a well ascertained matter of fact. The whole of his sheep and many of his horses are to be sold by auction in the course of the present month. A great deal of his disposa ble property has been already privately sold. Many of our English nobles are much in the same condition, heavy mortgages hanging over their estates, which they can with difficulty keep from the auctioneer's hammer. Not u few, therefore, are cutting down their expenditure to the lowest possible limits, by getting rid of their racing ctnds, hounds, See. Capt. Baker, the well-known sporting amateur, was last week discharged before the Insolvent Court. His debts are said to have only been about JMOOor JE600. Th? fTornraiasiinns wliioh llgve?bgen sitting in tne minianu districts, lor me trial 01 me rioters and chartist prisoners, have nearly brought their labors to a close. A lew of the most daring and criminal have been transported, and the remainder who were iound guilty, sentenced to various terms of imprisonment. The lamentable deficiency in the quarter's revenue accounts, recently published, has created much disappointment. Although there is an increase on the year, there is a decrease on the quarter of ?67,483, and this in the teeth of the large amount of income tax collected, and the immense sum received for duty on the importation of foreign corn. The item on which the largest decrease is observable, is on excisable articles, and as is justly observed by the Chronicle, "The consumption of the people must have fearfatlv decreased, to make the falling off in the excise for one quarter, no less than 434,831! What an account of destitution is here exhibited!" The poorer classes are now just beginning to reap the advantage of the new tariff, by the extensive importation of foreign cattle from the continent, flour and suit provisions from America,which has lowered the nrices considerably. Now that the disturbances and late strike for wages are ended, it is to be hoped that a more healthy feeling may become manifest, and that our poor may be able to weather the winter months with some slight degree of comfort The Gazette of the 4th contained orders from the Queen, formally constituting the several dioceses of Baibaaoes. Antigua, Guiana, Gibraltar, and Tasmania, ana nominating and appointing the bishops whose consecration recently took place in Westminster Abbey. The Society for promoting Christian Knowledge intend moving at their usual mon'hIv meeting in Nowember, grants of ?fiOO each to tne Bishojw of Lasmania and Gibraltar, and ?200 each to the new West India bishons of Barbadoes. Antigua, and Guiana. Dr. Turton has been officially Gazetted Dean of Westminster, and Dr. Butler succeeds to the Deanery of Peterborough. The venerable Edward Stopford, Archdeacon of Armagh, has been appointed to the vacant Bishopric of Meath. The Archbishop of York and Earl Fitzwilliam have resjiectively given the munificent donation of ?1,000 each to the fund being raised for the restoration of those parts of York Minster recently destroyed and injured by fire. A fellow has been humbugging the lieges of B rmingham and its vicinity out of their cash, under the inviting title of the Archbishop of Tripoli! This primate scorns the usual appendage of luggage. He has since made himself scarce. Mr. T. Cornish, of Great Marlborough street, the Secretary of the Oriental Club, Hanover square, has absconded, taking with him upwards of ?1,000, belonging to the Club, besides leaving considerable additional sums unsettled for. The defaulter was formerly Deputy Purveyor to the Forces, and is at present on half-pav of that rank. It is said, that Earl He Grey, is to have the vacant garter placed at the disposal of ministers by the death of the Marquis of Westminister. Most probably, this is a quiet way for shelving the noble after the fashion of Buckingham, for the vice regal sway has be?n anything but satisfactory, and tliare were rumors not a few, as to the retirement of the Lord Lieutenant some time ago. Alderman T. Humphrey, the newly elect d Lord Mayor, has formally sent in his consent to serve the office for the ensuing year. It is said, that there is ?20,(Xk) surplus in hand, after paying the October dividends on the Mexican bonds. There is every reason to believe that the new postal treaty between France nnd England, will be satisfactorily arranged, and the contemplated reduction will shortly be carried into effect. The single postage to Paris is to be reduced to 8J. The negociations of England with the Austrian and other German government*, tor the trnn-it ot the overland India mail by wav of Trieste, Arc. is also neatly corclnded. and an English courier with the mail has either already taken, or will very shortly take this route. The report current a short time ngo, that Lord Stanley was to be called to lite Up.ier House previous to the meeting of Parliament, is not generally credited, on account of the abundance of conservative tal-nt already in that place Now that the Duke of Wellington has withdrawn, ns it were from active political life, some leader is required for the Tory party in the Peers. The Lord Chancellor has been making half s score of barristers happy, by Riving them ?2,UK) a year each, as bankruptcy commissioners, under the new act.

The provisions of the new Titrifl', with respect to foreign meats, came into operation on Monday, and these articles are now admissible at the reduced duties. A reference to our advertising colmuus will, , we think, sufficiently show that this tn-asure is not destined to be inoperative. This day will be oflereel I for sale, by different brokers, Ik>8 barrels of American and Canadian beet, 1,417 barrels of American and Canadian pork, 2 38 barrels and 15 hogsheads of American hams, and 260boxes of American cheese. Upon the latt-r article we may remark, no alteration of duty is made by the Tantl. Next week, we observe another sale announced of 5131 barrels of American beef; and no doubt n considerable quantity of the article is offering, which is not advertised in our columns. In a few weeks, we venture to predict that the eff-ct of this extensive introduction of foreign tnvats will be sensibly felt in our provision markets ; and, if the quality of the article by at all tolerable, the operation of the measure must confer a very material boon u|>oii the laboring classes during the approaching winter.?Liverpoolpajxr. Great Defalcation in the Bank of Manches tkr?The Manager Absconded ?Wilmer's News Letter says, during the last ten davs the utmost excitement and alarm has prevailed in consequence of the absconding of Mr.Kdmund Bnrdekin. Lite manager of the Manchester "Bank Various and confining statements have been freely circulated as to the probable amount which he has carried away, but as yet no accurate idea can be formed.? The mode in which Mr. lfurdekin has obtained the funds with which lie has decuinned is ihi?; Mr 13. waited upon Mr. (i. W. Seed, (a (tenon who passed through the Gazette some two years since, and who at the time stood indebted to the Bank ?15,000 to ?20,000, and represented to him the desperate position of thr bank and the necessity of its raising money promptly by way of bills, but for which the bank was not then prepared togive value,) who then consented to do as Mr. B. required; and bills, the i number and amount of which Mr. Seed took no account, were drawn by said Seed, und accepted by a JohnCtark. One ofthese bills fell due on Tuesday,the day on which Mr. B. left Liverpool for Boston. The amount of funds thus appropriated (lor Mr. B. got the bills discounted out of the bank,) is unknown, but variously estimated at from 13,0(10 to 20,000f. The box of specie, which left Liverpool on the 24th, by the Virginia, for New York, and said to be part of the plunder, is, it is pretty well ascertained not to be the case. The specie in question, ?20,000. is represented, on good authority, as being a real mercantile transaction: the specie being sent out for the purpose of purchasing coiton, and sent as being the best mode of making payment for that article. The annnal meeting of the shareholders in the Bank was held in Manchester on Friday last, a report of which stated that the liabilities by mismanagement were, in round numbers. ?800,000. African Slave Trade.?Annexed i3 a letter from Lord Aberdeen to the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty relative thereto :? Fokeiu* Office, JOth May, 1HU. Mr Lords,?I beg to call your Lorilship*' attention to the Kubi. ct of the instruction* given to Her Majst y'l Naval Otticers employed in suppressing slave traile on the coast ot Africa, and to the proceedings which havetakun place with reference thereto, a* detailed iu the papers named in the margin of this letter. Her Majesty's Advocate General, to whom these pa l>ei> nana u tu ?unmuicii, lit* rr|K>rte<i mat ne cannot take upon himself to advise that all the proceedings de- ' scribed as having taken place at Gallinas, New Cestoa, ??a Sua B.y strictly jnatiAable. or that the instructionato her Majvaty'a naval officers, aa relerrtd to 111 these papers are such aa can with perfect legality be earned into execution. The Queen's Advocate ia of opinion that the blockading rivers, landing and destroying buildings, and carry, ing off' persona held in slavery in countries with which Oreat Britain ia not at war,cannot bo considered aa sanctioned by the law of nations, or by the provisions ol any existing treaties ; and that however desirable it may be to put an end to the slave trade, a good, however eminent, should not be attained otherwise than by lawful means. Accordingly, and with reference to the proceedings ol Captain Nurse at Rio Tongas, on the 33th April, 1841, as well as to the lettera addressed I rum thi- department to the Admiralty on the6-h April, the 1st and l?th June, and the 33th July of l?-t year, I would suhmit to the consideration of your Lordahipv that it is desirable that Her Majesty's naval officers employed in suppressing the slave trade should be instructed to abstain iroui daatioying slave factories and carryingotf persons held in slavery, unless the power upon whose territory or within whose jurisdiction the factory or the slaves an; found should by treaty with Great Britain, or by formal written agreement withBritish officers, have empowered Her Majesty's naval forces to tske those steps for the suppression of the slave trade: and that if, in proceeding to destroy any factory, it shonld be found to contain mtrchandise or other property which there may be reason to silp|>ose to belong to foreign traders, care should he taken not to include such property in the destruction of the factory. With respect to the blockading rivers, it appear* from the papers referred to that the terms blockade and blockading have been used by British naval officers, when adverting to the laudable practice ol stationing cruisers off the slave trading atations, with a view the better to intercept vesaela carrying on slave trade, contrary to the treaties between Great Britain and the powers to which such vessels belong. JBut aa the term blockade properly used extends to an interdiction of all trade, and indued all communication with the place blockaded, 1 beg leave to submit for your lordships' consideration, whether it will not be proper to caution her Mnjestj's navalofficrrs upon this head, lest by the inadvertant and repeated use of the term blockade the exercise of the duty confided te British officers in suppressing slave trade might,by any one, be confounded with the Tcry d.ffurent oae of actual blockade -I have, Ac., (Signed) ABEKDEEN.

Alglrr*. The war in Algiers appears to be curried on by Abd-el-Kadir and a few recusant tribes, with as much vigor as ever against the French power in Africa. The Einir had given rendezvous at Tekedempt to all the petty chiefs who were attached to lu-eause. Ben Abdallah, one of the caids of the Kalifat of Palem, had been beheaded by order of the Emir, It appears that the French and Aralis have had several skirmishes, with alternate success. At the latest accounts trom Algiers, nil the chiefs of the Ouled Nayle, a large tribe inhabiting the 30uthof the proviuce of Tit tery, had arrived there and made their submission to the French. Previous 10 rrreiving the investiture, they promised to pay the French government the tribute which they had befor paid to Abd-el-Kadir; t? hold no intercourse with the Emir, and to intercept his communications across the desert. * iui uir- autumn until}'.II?11 ngitmst inc Emir, were on a mo? extensive scale. A number of tr bes who had submitted, had again betrayed symptoms of hostility The people of Tenez, and the Keni Mena-sers were in open rebellion; and nothing but the complete subjugation of Abd-elKadir could afford nny prospect ot tranquility to the French power in Africa. Servia. The revolution in the province of Servia, appears to b; complete and successful. Accounts received ut Vienda cimfirm the statement that Prince Michael had been abandoned by all his troop-), and had fled to Senilin, where he invoked the p election of Austria. He had previously been defeated in two severe engagements, and lost all his artillery Touseilch, the revolu ionary chief, had besieged Belgrade, the last fortress ol Prince Michael, which evinced very little disposition to holdout against the arms of the victor. It has been proposed to the Prince to return and resume the government, on condition ot his dismissing his obnoxious ministers ; but he would listen to no such pri posal. Meantime, Rsjewitch, the treasurer, and most obnoxious of all the ministers, has been taken prisoner, and is doubtless reserved lor a cruel fate. Two Russian emissaries had been arrested in Bulgaria, who were known to have been connected witli the revolutionary movements in Servia. One made his escape, and the other was sent immediately to Constantinople. Turkey. Latest accounts from Ezeroum speak of another combat between the Persians and the Tnrks in the environs of Buyazid The latter, though onlv 300 in number, and surprised by n superior force, charged the assailants with great i npetuosity, routed them, and pursued them to Ovadjik. After this affair, the Persians considered themselves no longer safe on that part of the frontier, made a retrogade movement, and abandoned the iiositions they had held for some time in the neighborhood ol Bayazid. The Kurds in the districts of Bavazid, Monse and Van had taken up arms in favor of the Turks, and 5000 Lazees were daily expected from Trebizond. Egypt. The Pacha of Egypt is still progressing with those great public works which have so signally distinguished Ins reign. A terrible mortality existed among the cattle in some parts of Egypt.

Livcspool Cpnis Eschakob, Oct. 17.?The arrivals during last week of Grain from thu Knglish counties were tolerably good, particularly of Barley and Mult, but of Wheat the supply was only moderate." Ol foreign Oiain of an) sort we ciintinueto receive but scanty supplies, the few ca-goes that arrive going into liond, and, as such, not HllVcting the currency for homo consumption. The trade truiighmit the week may be said to have ruled steady, particularly for Win ats such grain meeting a lair demand at prices lully equal to those of the preceding Monday, while lor Barley of secondary quality the pievious rules were not supported by about Is per quarter. To this morning s market the supply fresh up was short of Wheat, both hssex and Kent, nut of Bit ley the arrival wus rather abundant. Wheata have a languid demand at the price* of this day week, and in some instances prices have given way Is. tolls, per quarter, but B irley, except superfine descriptions, must be full is. chnnper. New Iri-h Oats, of good quality, are hel l firmly, but inferior descriptions ol oi l are difficult of sale. Beans and Teas realize the prices of tli s day week, the former meeting, perhaps, taiher a better demand. In Flour there is no alteration, the top price of town-made continuing at 47s per sacs.

The attendance of town and country dealers at the ?ales was numerous, and there were some gentlemen Irom Ireland; the latter, no doubt, chiefly to watch the progress of a trade threatening to interfere with that which they have enjoyed exclusively for so long. " ft must be observed, that the greater portion of the United States' ments were imported some months ago, and, having been cured before it was known that there would liea change in the Dritish duties, were not so well suited to the taste of consumers here, as doubtless they will be rendered hereafter.

Bhadv.?It lias lieen the custom of each of tho magistrate, in the oltice to di-cliarge vagrants. Tbey have sometimes cnteied such but not always. There la no recoid of discharges separate from the daily minutes. The applications for discharge were generally veibal? frequently the magistrates called upon the clerksfor information of the time when committed and other particulars The applications were previo> s to sentence biing expired. It is not the custom lor keepers to send lor discharges?the old hoard of commissioners of the Alms House sometimes did so, from one to six or seven at a inie. The keepers, on the last of March or beginning ol April, of this ) ear, sent for some, lust I did not know of previous instances for two or three rears, was frequently on the island with Justice Matsill. In the summer and fall of IH41 saw printed Monks of discharges in the keeper's office. I filled up two or three on one of the occasions for women as we w ent through the fema'e department Do not know that thuie was uny discrimination bet wet n iha women and the men, hut tt e women pressed round. The r> asons assigned would he that the te> ir of imprisonment had nearly expired, and the prisoners would leel under some obligation to the magistrates. Have knewn where married men have been sent to the penitentiary on complaint of their wives, and the latter soon alterwards applied to have them discharged. It is not, how ever, a v. ry common case. By Mr. O'Coaxoa?Do r.ot know that any man was discharged while I was with Justice Matsell at the Island; knew of threw women being discharged when Justice Parker went to the Island; have known of eight or tin being discharged at a time; 1 generally filled up the dis. charges; the magistrate generally cnquit?d as to the offence committed; the persons disrhaiged were all vagrants. Mr. Whiting, District Attorney made a ri mark at onetime, in the ;>olicc ottire, that the. discharges hefoiw sentence had expired, were all ilh gut. and he would notify the keeper, Mr Brown, that he would have him indicted if ho allowed discharges in this way (meaning under lha magistrates'orders). Mr. Parker snu others w ere present. It Is not usual to discharge vagrants on a Sunday; do not recollect any instance of such; the records are ail intended to lie leturned to the Court of Sessions. It was not u-ualforone magistrate to discharge when commitment w-as made by anotuer, till these three magistrate* came in. It has not been usual fo> the lower police magistrates to discharge on commitments made by the upper police; the principal reason Is that the circumstance* of the commitment arc unknown to them. Mr. Purdy, one of the deputy keepers, asked me, near the last of March,if I thought the magistrates would discharge a vagrant named New; 1 said not; 1 alterwards saw the name on the magistrates' aide, and told Justice Stevens I did not like the look of the application; it did rot appear to be (or any g od purpose. Mr. Steven'said he would nut discharge rim; the mail had lived on the comcrof Lit le Water and Anthony s'reets, and his time v. as not halfout One Sunday < seeing, about a fottnight belore the elertion. Ruckle-, the Deputy keeper, railed Mr. Matsell aside, i no banned him a list of names whirb he talil he would like to have discharged I railed Mr. Parker into the small office, and I told him I thought no good was intended so near the elvction. I had not much coufld nre in Ruckles, and thought he might get the magistrates into difficult} h fore the) knew it. I advised, that if the men were to be dischargsd, the application had hetter come from Mr. Slewart (Alms House commissioner) In tho usual w?y. Mr. Matsell called in, coincided in the opinion, and told Ruckles that he declineddischariing the men; doea not know o the disrharge of any of the 71 except Jus. New a. When Mr. Whitirg s|>oke ot the discharges, he called in relation to a woman named Melinda Hoe, w ho had hern committed.

He foaml the commitminte, with other papers, in the desk of Mr. Ruckles. The nlinesol ./antes Martin and Martin Preston, (witnesses) were then called, but nut appearing, an attachment was ordered.
