V I with tai- unyielding t mper, th"re seem'd mixed ] no Mm lit of anger, and here was an expres ion difficult to ^ describe, amounting almost to a kind of forgiving contempt, in Ivs m inner ol speaking of Gov. Seward. Yet, w it ml, there was a deep and solemn recollection that he hid done with life The one leading and strong feeling y was, a w ish intense to agony, to have his case wholly and perfectly understood. For that alone he wished for life. j It hnl dwelt and burned in his mind until it almost ( H'UonnteJ to mono m inia. But unbending as he was in | his declaration that his death was a cold judicial murder, he did not seem impenitent or stern. When he turned to his iro'lier, an I spoke ol his true and tender kindneis, and j his devoted self sacrificing friendship, his eyes filled wilu tears, and his voice faltered. " For liis sake?for his sake 1 alone, would I gladly die, if my death w ill bring in full , light the truth. A little more time?six weeks more of ! life, and my fellow men would have been more ju?t " "Think no more of this world, my dear friend," said ( my companion, taking his hand ; " a better one lays belore vou." "You are right,-'said I'oil, affectionately pressing his hand " You are right. It is only my b tundless trust in the infinite goodness of our l-reator that lias kept me 1 from m dness A year in these narrow walls would have crushed me, if 1 had not felt that God ispresent even here l ? had not forsaken me." With that quiet sail smile which is more m> lancholy than a sigh, he laid hii hand on a ... . ?, ...... -.U.i.r l?>-ct that I was dead to the instruction and consolation contained in this volume, tmt I am not so lost." He conti med to speak of the cheering hopes he enteitained ol n happy hereafter?of his trust in the efficacy ol the Divine Voneinent?and hi? disbelief in endless punishments ?"He could not so understand the Scriptures." His relitmus opinions were ft sed. When at length hes|>okeof "his |K>or (tar.line," he was completely unmanned. " When our acquaintance commenced," he said, I had 11 o rr reflected on the nature and consequences of such oil aces. 1 even took a sort of credit to myself for being less c iminal han most young men. Our situation was peculiar, and 1 was we ,k enough to think a marriage impossible. At the very time of my arrest, however, 1 was contemplating the only reparation I could make for the injury she has sustained through me. 1 do not say it to excuse myself, but to condemn the general tone oi feeling on the subject, but situated precisely as I was, had I oh e,l the dictates of justice und pure morality, the whole world wo iM hive pronounced me a fool. Had Caroline Veen a col I, selfish, calcula'ing woman, instead ol a confiling. enthusiastic. true-hearted girl, she would have Ssv-d her reputation Socie't will good-naturedly tolerate certain phases of vice while virtue hersell will tie decried if' she walk not in the tastiion.' " Colt was eager to lo whatever remained in his |mwer for Caroline. |t appears, that from the h ginning, Colt was anxious to sanctify by marriage their it iuck> connection; hut that at ft-st, it was delay ed, b.-cause her testimony w as thought ol importance to Colt, as, il she was his wife, she could not be a witness?though he was willing to I'orego that advantage. If by so doing, she could be benefitted. For herself, she seem, d to have no thought, wish, or purpose bevon I his life?on that hung her existence If he was spared all w is well: if he w hi not, the world whs nought t.r her. The advice of friends had thus far arrested his intentions, hut now be would not be refused. " He wished toil ,, the husband by every rue of the woman he t ad taught to consider hersell his wife.

Only his particular friends attend to him, and as we are one of them, we beg to ask every humane person to come into our office to-day and sign the following petition:? To Hi* Excellkncv, William H Seward, Govkhnor j or tiik State or New York. i The undersigned would respeclfullv represent, that whereas J. Watson Wehb, editor ol the New York Courier and Enquirer, has pleaded guilty to an indictment for leaving the State with the intent to accept, and for ae cepting n challenge to fight a duel w ith the Hon. T. F Marshall, ami is now in p ison a waiting the sentence of the law; and hclievine tha' the caae ia one justly claiming the clemency of the Executive, we do moat respectfully ask the intvrpnuiiion of your Excellency, and that )OU may he pleased to grant the said Webb a lull and uncondi'ional pardon. Yesterday Col. Webb spent a tolerably pleasant time in prison. A number of his friends called upon him?talked over his case?and cheered up hi< spirits. He fought all his battles o'er again. If we can, we shall also visit him to-day?but if our spirits should be too low for that effort of friendship, we request Governor Gilbert Davis, corner of William street and Pine, to send him half a dozen of his best champagne, and Henriques, 51 William street, to dispatch a hundred of his best segars to our old friend and fellow sufferer, and to send their bills to us for payment this day. " For auld l ing syne," in spite of all his "sayings and doings," against us, we shall be busy all day in getting signatures to the petition. Poor Webb must be pardoned, and no mistake. T.,r. AT.r,.. T?AT...........ur? : inn iuaai iiv?ur.i\a iui.Mr.Ki ??c tfttVC 111 OUT taper of yesterduv a full reimrt ol the Police examination which took place on Saturday at Hoboken, relative to the murder of Mary Rogers,from which it appears that the following story published in the Tribune, is all falsehood, and absolute lubrication [From the Tribune.] Thf. Miiv RontRi' Mrmtif ExrLAixxn.?The terrible mystery, which for more tliRn a year has hung over the Inteof Marv Rogers, whose body una found, as our readers will well rememher, in the North River, under circumttances sncli us convinced every one that she was the vie:im of violence and then of murder, is at last explainrd? to the sn'isf'action we doubt not, of all It may be recollected, thn' associated with tho tale of her disappearance, iv s the nameof Mrs. Loss, the woman who kept the rereshment house nearest the set ne of her death. About a ortnight since?as we have already stated?this woman was accidentally wound-d by the premature dischargeof i gun in the hands of her son; the wound proved fatal ; tefore she died she sent tor Justice Merri't, of New Jerley.and told him the following facts On the Sunday of if Miss Rogers' disappearance, she came to her house torn this city in company with a young physician, who ndertook to procure lor her a premature delivery. While n the hands of the phyaician she died, anil a consultation vas then held as to the disposal of her body. I' was finally aken at night I y the son of Mrs. Lo?s, and sunk in the iver where it was found. Her clothes were first tied up n a bundle, and sunk in a pond on the land of Mr. James 3. King in that neighborhood ; hut it wag afterward tl'itlgSt they were not safe tKirn, init tKey wfir ncooril ngly taken and scattered through the woods at they ivure f< und. The name of the physician it unknown to us, nor do we kn > w whetner it was divulged Or not. The Mayor ha* been ma le acquainted with these facts by Mr. Merriit, and we dmifit not an immediate inquiry alter the guilty wretrh will he made. The ton of Mrs. Loss as an accessary a ter the fact,we suppose will he, it he has not already been, arrested No doubt, we apprehend, can be entertained of the truth of this cor.fession. It explains many things connected with th- affair,which before were wrapped in mystery?especially the apathy of the mother of Mis< Rogers ti|>on the discovery of herbodv. It will he remembered that she did not even go ?o indentify it, and nade no inquiries c ncerning the affair. Thus has this fearful mystery, which has struck fear mil terror to so many hearts, been at last explained by ireumstnnces in which no one can fail to perceive a Pro ridential agency. Besides the guilty murderer, the sc ret rested with two persons. One of these, through the nvoluntarv agency of the other, is laid upon her death ted?and then Conscience, ne longer able to keep sience, breathes its accusation intoth" ear of Justice. Of all this wonderful development, not one word is true. It seems to have been manuf ctured in the same way that the other statements in the Tribune are got up?to serve some dirty purpose. The following is in addition to the evidence we gave yesterday :? Dentil or Jl?rjr Kogers. I noticed a statement in the " Tribune" of this morning, relative to a confession said to have been made before me, hv the late Mrs Loss, which is entirely incorrect, as no such examination took place, nor could it, from the deranged state of M rs. Loss's mind. Respectfully Yours, GILBERT MERRITT. Hoboken, Nov. 18,184-2. But it is due to the public to say, that, although the " mystery" thus developed in the Tribune is utterly without foundation, there isa" mystery" which we have fathomed, and which we can give at ihe proper time. To say more at present might defeat the ends of justice?to say less would have encouraged the imbecile, blundering beings of the Tribune, to go on in their ridiculous fabrications about a matter that they cannot know, and cannot appreciate. Thk Weather.?Yesterday was not so cold a day as Friday and Saturday. The wind has moderated, and a good deal of ice was probably made last night in consequence. The cannls cannot remain open long with such weather. However, this is about the period for them to close. More of the Weather?Arrivals or hie Mails.?After remaining two days without anv news Irom the pact, we received a mail from there last mailt. It was brought by the Massachusetts, Captain Comstock, and we are much indebted to Harnden iV Co. for the immediate delivery of our papers, nnd also to Adams Sc Co. It appears that the heavy blow we experienced in this city on Friday und Saturday nights, was very severe in the Sound. The wind blew so violently that the steamers New Haven and Rhode Island, wit'i passengers who left lloaton on Friday, were compelled that night to pat into New London, whence several gentlemen left there and came on t>y the way of New Haven, arriving here late yesterlay afternoon. And the Massachusetts, which left honington on Saturday afternoon, went ashore iAmi.ivh?rp in th.. ni..l?l ?.t,;?l. .I.i.t?J l L ... v,..v ".? .v ... ...v iii^uv, miit.ii uruiiiiru nrr nonill en hours behind her time. She, however, sitstain<1 no material damage, and will leave again this ifternoon on her return trip. Aa these mishaps utocked the arrangements of the steamer into a mcked hat, no boat left this city till yesterday afteriwon, for the east, when the Mohegan started. All we find in our pajiers is, that the storm extended as far east as Portland. We take from the "Arms" of that city, of the IHth inst., the following relative thereto:? " The severest rain storm of the season commenced here 1 Hst evening, with the wind blowing a gale rom the east, Hnfj continued without abatement this morning. We have heard of no damage yet, hut there is cause to apprehend some disasters to vessels on the coast. The Portland went out last evening, but was romp-lied to return in consequence if the severity of the storm. She anchored in the r?ads last evening, and came up this morning. The chooner Young Hero, Teazer, and the British chooner Return, parted their cables, i.nd went .shore near the old distillery, below Steamboat Vliarf. They will probably get off when the storm ihates, without damage. Ship Hermitage and several vessels in the stream dragged their anchors, but soon brought up." i Tim IIorbid Death of JohnC. Colt.?The agitation in the community i? increasing every moment in relation to the mysterious juggle that was perpetrated at the Egyptian Tombs on Friday last, l?y which the ends of justice wcredrfeated, the majesty of the luw made a miserable mockery of, and th< poor unfortunate wretch himself di- <1 a mop- liorrible, revolting and disgraceful death than even had he perished by the hands of the common hangman The whole community, as with one voice, cry out "Shameful," "Di graceful," in regard to the shocking negligence which biought about this disgraceful result; and they demand that those who neglectedor violated their duty in the matter, should be sp -edily and properly punished. In this nios' revolting affair, from first to last, Judge Kent, Mr. Whiting, the Jury who tried Colt' Governor Seward, the Judges of the Supreme Court, the Chancellor, and Colonel .Tones, the keeper of the City Pri-on, deserve great praise, and u .l? : .1 i i ?r it,*ir "iii navr inr uuuctisMii^ iimimn mm rrp|?rti */? fellow citizens, for theirstern integrity nnd determtnation, at all hazards, and under all influences, to support the integrity and majesty of the laws, and see the ends of justice carried out. How does their conduct contrast with that of Sheriff Hart 1 Let him walk round among his fellow citizens, and get the answer; and hear th? universal cry of condemnation against him for gross negligence in not preventing the prisoner from rushing into the presence ot his Maker unbidden. Disguise the matter as we may, he is morally an accessory to the self-murder of that poor wretch ! If he believed, as he said, that Colt had made this peace with Cod, was prepared to die as a Christian, and felt sure of his eternal salvation, through the atonement of the Savior of Men, whv, it whs tenfold more incumbent on him to watch Colt narrow, ly, and see that he did not condemn his soul to eternal infamy by committing self-murder Now. then, how did he act 1 He never searched Colt's cell?he never searched his person?he never h'd lho?e persons searched who went in to see Colt. A hundred weapons of destruction might have been given to Colt, on account ol the Sheriffs negligence, and yet under all these circumstances he was left alone for one hour and twenty-five minutes before the hour he wrs to be executed. The Sheriff knew that Colt had meditated suicide ?he knew (for it was published in this paper on Thursday) that Colt had ask 'd to borrow works on anatomy, for the express purpose of learning how to kill himself quickly, and had asked the doctor of the prison to point out those arteries which, when cut, would most readily destroy lite. He knew that Colt or his friends were determined to prevent his being hung, if any earthly means in their power would prevent it; he knew that they had attempted to bribe three deputy keepers, and even tried to bribe his own deputy sheriff, Vultee, with $500; which, when he found Vultee incorruptible, he pave to Caroline Henshaw with so much parade. He knew that the prisoner at 2 o'clock in the afternoon of that fatal day had begged him to refuse to perform his duty, and let the hour pass by without hanging him ; even going so far as to tell the Sheriff that if the mob in their rage and vengeance should tear down his house, that he would have another house given him, and be amply remunerated for all he might lose. And yet, in the face of all this, he allows him to be alone for the last hour and a half; whilst with the 30 persons in the jail it was common talk that Co't would never be hung, but commit suicide. And the tone snd temper of Colt's mind at half past two o'clock might easily be seen. When the Sheriff and Hillyerwent to see him, he said angrily, "I thought I was to be left alone till four; I thought you pledged your word to me that J should not be disturbed by any one on any pretence, before four o'clock." And yet he was left alone. The violated majesty of the law, and the outraged feelings of the public, demand a full and thorough, and impartial investigation of the whole affair; and we trust that both the Common Conncil and the Governor will enter upon the task without delay. Theatrical. Park Theatre Opera.?The old opera of Aeis and Galaiea is to be given to-night ai the Park for the benefit of Seguin. The " Israelites" have got over the Red Sea ; but although they took asmanv of the silver vessels of the Egyptians as they could get, rhev lost many of rhein in the waves crossing over. Ijadiriugc apart?this splendid opera has paid, hut no more. The rexsnn is that fushionuhlo ion. pie have no money lo spend for cab or hack hire to go to theatre's. If it were considered genteel to walk to the theatre, more people# might go?hut hack hire is more than the price of tickets. Economy has made wondrous strides in these days. After a benefit or two, the company goes to Philadelphia, where they will probably fare much the same. The Bowery?Empty henchespnncipally. The Chatham.?Mrs. Thorne takes a benefit tonight, and will probably have a good one. Thorne manages his cards with a great deal of skill, industry and tact. Niblo's Saloon.?The Rev. Mr. Finney now preaches in this celebrated place. The " old lights" have taken the saloon for tne winter season, and it is probable that as many converts will be made during this preaching time, as there were sinners ma nufactured during the playing season. Niblo is a queer chap. Max Bohrer's Concert.?This concert comes off to-night at the Apollo Rooms, in Broadway.? Rohrer is a wonderful artist in his line?the violoncello?and well worth going to hear. Naoel is still in Albany, giving concerts with great success. Naval.?The steam frigate Mississippi is to be dismantled and laid up for the winter at Boston. City Intelligence, Yesterday there wm not a case of the least public interest transpired at either of the Police, or the Coroner's office, that was in a proper condition for publication. Common Council ?Both boards meet this evining at 6 o'clock in their respective chambers in the City Hall, when doubtless some measures will be taken to cause a full investigation to be made into the cause of the burning oftho cupola on the Halls of Justice on Friday, and the other marvellous and strange things that happened about the Tombs on that eventful dav, in order to allay the excitement that exists on those matters to so great aa extent throughout the city. Fiar. ?A fire occurred yesterday morning about three o'clock, in a frame building occupied by several families, in the rear of Seventeenth street, near the 8th Avenue, which on*umed the building where it originated,and two other* of a similar description adjoining, belore ft wa* extinguished.

Knperior Court. Before Judge Oakley. Nov. 19.?Henry /height, jr., vs. Edward Flanagan.? Thii wa? an action to recover the amount of two checks of f j?0 upon the Merchant*'Bank. It ?eems that a note of Lake, Brother*, tor f-tnn dollar*, endorsed Ity defendant, had been deposited by him in the hand* of Wm. B. iesup, a broker, and the sum of $J00 loane I to him 'hereon,Jesnp taking the?e check* as memoranda for the amount loaned These check* and also the note were afterwards transferred to Edward M Morgan, Jeaup's uncle, who passed away she note before due to one Atwater, who had recovered thereon, and the checks to the plaintiff. The plaintiffs witness (Edward M. Morgan) was in direct collision in hi* testimony with Jesup, at.d contradicted by the other w itnesses in many important particular* The Judge charged the jury that it was quite apparent Jesup could not sue the cheeks unlets he cancelled the note, and no third person could stand in any better condi lion, unless he c.ouM show how he come hy them. Morgan's right to recover depended upon two grounds?1st, whether he took tho checko without knowledge of thecireumotance* under which they were given, ?nd without good reooon to suspect any thing wrong ; and here there was a most serious discrepancy between the testimony of Jeiup and Morgan and the other witnesses. Even if vo* should find that Morgan took the check fairly and without knowledge from Jesup, a second and further otiestion arises lor you te conaider, w he!he'Jesup was not the mere agent of Morgan ; in which case the law charges Morgan with his knowledge. The plaintiff could not recover unless he took thech' cks innocently and for valuable consi deration, and even if you ahould find affirmatively on thia point, still if Morgan was the agent of the plaintiff, the same principle of law charging him with knowledgeof his agent would prevail. It does not clearly appear what his agency was in respect to plaintiff He swat s he operaic.l wi'.h the plaintiffs funds, and realised his profit irom the tale to Jesup of uncurrent money, (principally of the Housatonic Rail Road Company) reliving back current funds, and this he states was fir his own benefit. If this was so, a curious question arises, w hat benefit the plaintiff was 10 receive Irom these transactions. Morgan swears he was in no way connected or interested with either Jetsup or the plaintiff. The tes timony, however, on the other side ft in conflict with this statement.

Van Burtn, Cat*, Tyler?Their Prospect*?Currency? Canal*?Season. Peak Gknkual : ? I see that some ol the Clay papers are spreading the report, and rejoicing over it, that the New York Herald is 'o die?to follow the way of many other papers. Not believing that a discerning public would let a paper conducted with the abil ty which marks the columns of the Herald, suffer for want of patronage, 1 set down the report as originating with that prince of humbugs, Webb, of the Courier, and utterly without foundation. Our latest news of moment is that Mr. Buchanan (or his agent) has been to see Little Martin, and that he will throw the vote of Pennsylvanian I'orhim for the consideration that Martin pledges New York for him at the expiration of a lour years teim. The large majority which New York hasgiven, hasreviv rii me nr.peK ol Martin's trends in line Slate, end destroyed Mr. Buchanan's prospectsof a nomination It is now generally conceded that Martin will pot Ohio and New York to start with, which may account lot the early bargain between htm and Mr B., the truth of which I have not heard doubted. Perh?i>s Vlr. B. may have visited him on other business, and the transfer of his friends to Martin, a mere invention of the Cass men, who are raising in strengt h. At least I have no doubt this will he said of it. But, I believe, there are few who do not know, or who have not Heard, that to Mr Van Buren he owes Ins appointment as Minister to Russia, as it was well known that Gen. Jackson never could hear his name mentioned with complacency after his contradiction of the General in the matter relating to Clay's offering to throw hia strength a certain wav upon certain conditions, conveyed to the General by Mr. Buchanan. The movement in favor of Gen. Cass, at this place, is headed by the principal friends i f the administration, and will receive me sanction of nearly all who possess friendship for Gov Porter There is a considerable feud between the personal friend-" of Porter and Buchanan, the latter attributing all op;>osition tohis claims to the former, whom he hasan idea wishes to be on the ticket for Vice President with Gen. Cass. This bad feeling may defeat his election to the United States Senute. It is also said that as he is a candidate for the Presidency, it is little to ask for the United States Senate, and that whoever is elected President, that he would not give him his sui port as United States Senator, unless he had the control of all the loaves and fishes to be given to Pennsylvania. Mr Clav's prosppcts are dull. His friends are in despair. Gen. Scott killed himself off with his creed. Col Johnson is going ahead; and President Tyler's pro?peets are as good as any of the candidates Our money is in a bad condition. Nothing but State scrip, which dealers are obliged to take at par, and suffer a shave in the city of ten or fifteen per cent. 1 have not heard of any plan by which we are. to be benefitted yet suggested?unless this is one, to pay no interest, no debts of any kind, except those necessary to carry on the government, cad in the scrip, and allow hanks to issue small notes,'redeemable in silver. All the stocks belonging to the State are to be sold in a few days, by which a few thousands will be raised. No one thinks of levying additional taxes. i iy hi runs enuri win ue uinur 10 nave a law jiass^u for the sale of our improvements, nnd as it will probably be made a political question, it may be carried. The ogaa of the Buchanan party was out, sometime ago, in favor ot a sale, and Jud^e Champ ney, Senator from Lancaster, is reported to go into the Senate, charged to the brim for a sale. The editor of the late Washingtonian, temperance paper, made a narrow escape a few nights since. After becoming a little warmed, he stepi>ed from a packet boat into a lock, and was very near bevond the reach of a " cobbler," before he was got out. The canal is open and in fine order, and will remain open until closed by cold weather. Passengers, next season, will be carried from Philadelphia to Pittsburg for $10 and $7, the S.ate doing the carrying on the railroad to Lancaster. Dayton, Ohio, [Correspondence of the Herald. I Dayton, Nov 13, 1842. The (fruit Central Emporium of Ohio?Politics? I*aiv? Men of Business?-Religion?Fashion? Agriculture?Trade. -amks Gordon Bennett Esq., LL. D. Sir? Dayton is the most interesting and important city in the west. I< is the focus of attraction?the grand centre around which all the other towns and citiea in the State revolve as mere satellites. Cincinnati, Columbus, Zanesville, Cleveland, are no places in comparison. Here we have every thing that is grand, and great, and glorious, and funny, and ridiculous. Here the great political gladiators of the nation meet and fight, and here the mighty population of the great west have twice congregated, like sands on the sea shore, in multitudes, to deliberate in solemn council upon the affairs of this great nation, and then returned home and .published to the world, through the ballot boxes, the result of their deliberations. Montgomery county, during the last political campaign, was the great battle ground, and the mightiest men in the nation displayed their nrowees on ttiistheatre. Clay, Crittenden. Brough, Corwin, Allen,'>nd a host of other master spirits, came here to assist their respective parties in the fierce struggle for ascendency in the county. The contest was a close one, the parties being so nearly equally divided that sotne of both sides were elected. The big fandango, held by the whigs on the 29th September, surpassed anything ever witnessed in the United Stutes. No' less than two hundred thousand were pr-sent on the occasion. Language would totally tail to describe it; and as it has frequently been attempted, I shall forbear to try it. The excitement between that day and the day of the election was tremendous. After the demonstrations on the 29th, no one doubted but that the whigs would carry the State by an overwhelming majority. The result struck the whigs dumb, and astonished even the democrats. The excitement has now entirely subsided, and politics are hardly ever mentioned, ex cept by the demagogues who live by it. Our court is now in session, and much dissatisfaction is manifested by the members of the bar in relation to thd conduct of Judge Helfenstien He is the president judge in the district, and for two terms in succession has absented himself from his post of duty, compelling the lawyers to continue nearly all their cases for six and nine months The interests of the suitors are wholly disregarded, and many will suffer an entire loss of the amount of their claims in consequence of the delay. In the meantime, the Judge has been travelling about, visiting the . astern cities and the capitol of the Union, for wh t purpose he has not thought proper to inform us, though it is strongly suspected by some that he has been fishing for an appointment from the Captain. He is now thirty miles north of ihts, attending to business of a private character, while his official duties are wholly neglected by hi.n. His conduct, in my opinion, is highly reprehensible. We have a very large bar here, consisting of many men of a high order of talent. The most successful practitioner is P P Lowe, Esq He has more business than any otner member, and has risen, in this place, to the top of his profession, in a manner highly creditable to himself. He came here some fifteen or twenty years ago, a poor boy. almost without education,and by dint efhard application and untiring l>erseverance,and industry, has accumulated a large lortune, and it isnow reported that he will likely be the next candidate for Congress, in this district, on the democratic side. Then there is Judge Holt, on the same side of politics. He is an old lawyer, and will no dou^t fill the place ol Judge Helfenslein, whose term of office expires this winter. On the other side are Judge Crane, the oldest member of thebar. and his partner, E. W. Davis, one of the finest looking, gentlemanly men, and dignified speakers in the profession. Then there are K. C. Pchenck. and his partner P. Odlin, Esq , a man ol excellent talents, II. S. Stoddard, C. Anderson, and many others, too numerous to mention. Among the most wealthy and enterprising of our bu-i'ie s men, actively engaged in this pi ice are. William Eaker, the richest democrat in Ohio, D. Phillips, son of the old millionaire; Este, one of die smallest and smartest men in town ; John Hench, the most energetic business tnan in the place ; V. Winters, F. Gebhart, Herman, Messrs. Perrincs, Hrown Ac Sons, Parrotts, Brady, Swain Ac Demarist, II. Pease,^S. ohoup, K.oth, II. L. Brown, and a mimher 01 others. J. (). Shoiip and Dorson LOdwards constitute our entire stock of money brokers. The former does his business in that line in a private way, but the latter has recently opened a snop on Third str et.

The temperance men have, him arraigned before a court of lawtor high crimes and misdemeanors. I am sorry to observe, however, that his trial is conducted in a manner calculated to throw great discredit upon the moiety. A disposition is manifested to make a dirty pettifogging scrape of if, by vexatiously crns?ques 'ioning anil abusing the witnesses, in conseipience of which no respectable man will go forward to testify against the edd sinner. 1 hope this may he hanged The place of trial Inst evening was crowded to overflowing!

Great anxiety is inan'fested in relation to the course the Democratic Legislature of Ohio will pursue at their next session in regard to the currency question. There is no absolute certainty as to what it will be. They have it in their power now, by a )udicious disposition of this question, to establish themselves permanently in this State. Jzzard.
