British C?overniueiit? Appointment of a Sew British Consul for Sew York. We understand that private and confidential information has been received by James G. King, Esq., the very eminent broker and " great financier" of the house of Prime, Ward, King iV Co., in Wall street, that the British government have resolved to appoint a son or a nephetv of Lord Ashburton.by the niiiu'' of Baring, to the very imisirtant and lucrative office of British Consul in this city. This appointment will take place on the retirement of Jam?s Buchanan, Esq , who sent his request for that purpose, some time since to the Foreign Department in Downing street. This retirement will tak- place in a few months, and Mr. Buchanan will receive the usual pension, in such cases, allowed by law. With this the Ex-Consul will return to a very beautiful villa he possesses on the edge of Niagara Falls, embracing the celebrated Table Hock, and there emov that ohum run 1 tlisrnihilr which never fails n> accompany a public sprvanl, who has con. ducted his administration of the Consulate in this rrty, for a period of twenty-seven years, with u tact, and industry, a courtesy, and an integrity that have called forth, not only the apiirobation of his own government, hut that of the people and government ofthe United States, who are much more difficult to manage. May he enjoy many happy years within the roar of Niagara. The appointment ol a member of the family of the Barings, as British Conrul of New York, is a very important one. Mr. Thomas C. Grattan, British Consul at Boston, and Anthony Barclay, Esq. of this city, were both applicants for the office. When the first intelligence reached England, through the columns of the "New York Herald," that Mr. Buchanan had expressed a wish to retire, nearly fix) applicants sprung up in different parts of England?and applied to the British government for tlif orfiee T.nrd Ah?-rH#??-n hnwrnnr in tvnlir stated that the post of British Consul in New York, iu.lheco ne, in several confidential aspects, one of the most important in America, and that it would be conferred on none but those who wielded great parliamentary influence. To the family of the Baring* this office is given?and no doubt through the influence, and to answer the purposes, of that mighty monied influence, of which Lord Ashburton is tne, head and the house in Wall street one of the ninety nine tails. V oung Mr. Barings will,therefore, come here, consigned li'.e a box of specie to the care of James G. King. L and bringing instructions with him, not only ti> manage the consular business, but to superintend the grand financial movement,originating in Loudon, called the " assumption of State debts by the general government " and the accomplishment of that " more comprehensive guarantee " for what the States owe to the capitalists of London. Thi* will he his principal and his confidential business?and in this point of view the appointment of , Mr. Buriiu.' *'ill be more important than the appointment of n minister plenipotentiary. Mr. Fox at Washington may still retain his empty honors and ( the solid salary, but the new British Consul in New , York, will be tli" real agent and resident minister of the British government? of the British aristocracy and , of the British capitalists. In th"-coming elections, ] and in the ; rogress of public opinion, the neV con- , sul and his advisers, will be a branch ol the European system ol thought, manners, institutions, fi nance, currency and government. It will be the centre of an influence that must be felt through the whole elections, up to the termination of the presidential 'contest in 1844.? Lord A.-hburton only performed a certain j>art of the , negotiation for which he ventured to cross the ] oc-an The principal object of the London aristo- j crucv and capitalists is to obtain the interest or the t principal of the $100,000,000 which they loaned to the dilb-rent States and coriHirations of this country, > principally through the representations of the Ba- , rings?a part of the object being to check the pro- 1 gTcs* of democracy in Europe. Lord Ashburton , only laid the foundation for pursuing this negocia- i Hon, and young Mr. Baring comes out, in the capa- ^ city of Consul, to reside in New York, in order to i sui>crintead this latter and uerv important neinoin- ' tion, that depend? more on the popular elections , than on diplomatic movements. 1 Yll these half-developed movements and purposes , of the Hritish novernment, are only parts of the gi- 1 Rantic system which has been shadowed forth in , the recent attaokshtpon the morals and institutiois i of this country through the columns ol the periodi- j chI press ol all kinds. It originated with Lord Ashburton on his return to England, and it may lead ' to ? me of the most important movements of the present century. The buds are but just out. Wait till the summer be past and the harvest ready. FLnkrpftcy and Morals?The number of resectable persons now taking the beuefit of the bankrupt law, is truly surprising. Each of these cases has a moral, too. Takethecase of Arthur Tappan, for instance. A few years ago Arthur Tappan was considered i very rich man?worth ?5<X?,000. He poured out his money like water to Bible Societies, Tract Societies. churches and clergymen. It is supposed that in the days of his prosperity he gave as much a.- ?100 000 away for such purposes. Noi long since a note uir? n by him for ?5000, " for value received of the Ivord"* was paid at one of the Wall street ban- All t- fious loafer* of the land hung around A"- ir c ; of prosperity?and they preached, ;.fayed. and prom.*ed him the richest crown of glory in heaven, for which he shelled out his dollars like button* Now perhaps, they would hardly say " (i d ole^a you" if Satan had him in his clutches. Arthur, it is said, got involved by indorsements, and speculations in Brooklyn lots. If it were known how he was induced to depart from a legitimate busings, we would find that he had been led astray in the nn?n? of the Lord. All the rich pious saints of the day seem to be going to bankruptcy. Tfoese monev-begving saints?these greedy parsons?these holy societies, got up to furnish livings to idle agents and pious loafers?have been the bane of the indus try and economy among our business men. Among the bankrupts we also nee the name of < .Tames CD Wilson Th s i* th?- Wilson olthe firm of ' Wi'sonte Co., publishers of the "Brother Jonathan," t and the cheap literature of the day This is also a very j curious case. The public have been led to suppose that the publishers of cheap literature, of such works < as Dickens' Notes by S0,0t)0 at a slap, were making ( money very fast. Yet here is the founder and first publi hrr of cheap literature, gazetted as a bankrupt ' and taking the benefit of the act because lie cannot i pay his debts Park Benjamin, another of the same kind of publishers, has been in bankruptcy for months?probably he has got his certificate. Wilson was always considered a good business man? and although he allowed his ptper to |*iblish all manner of falsehood* against our private and public chara-fer, yet we never thought it worth while to retaliate, expecting always that the bankrupt law would step in und settle the diflerence. The truth is, these cheap literary "Extras" have not only used up the old-fashioned booksellers? used up the mammoth regular sheets themselves, s'toh as the "Brother Jonathan" and the "New World"?but they % are now going to use up and wind up, like Saturn's children, their own parents and originators. All seem to be going into bankruptcy. The same black cloud seems to overbang the publishers of the "Fashionable Magazines." They are overdoing the thing, and must go Thus it will be seen that the bankrupt list is lull of poetry, romance, reality, morality, adventure, philosophy, politics, piety, religion, and common sense of a., kinds We shall take up several othyr castes trom the bankrupt list and give some curious historiettes that will he more interesting than all the trashy novels of the day. A historical sketch of the causes of each bankruptcy would be the tnost interesting thing that could be published--besides conveying a moral that would have a great influence 011 society in all time to come. Melancholy Accident,?We have to chronicle in thisday's paper one of the saddest accidents that I 1..11 1 a r. ?: ? ?i I IV l| luuur 1UI IU ictuiu. II HIC upcillllft vi | one of our news boats, and the drowning of two of our most efficient and faithful news collectors?both men with families. It apj?ears that Mr. William A. Bassett, the caplain, started yesteiday from Whitehall, in one of i.ur news boats,with John King and William Wood, his two boatmen, and Martin Casey of Whitehall, lor the Lower Bay, to cruise for ship news They left the wharf about twelve o'clock aud when just abreast of Gibbet Island, with a Iresh breeze blowing, the halliard gave way, while all were sitting on the windward side, the sail flapped over, and the boat immediately capsized. They succeeded in getting on the bottom of the boat, but would slip off and get on again. Bassett fell off five limes, and while Wood and Casey were engaged in assisting him on for the last time, King slipped again into the sea,and sunk to rise no more. Bassett continued to cheer up his companions but nature finally gave out,and he became exhausted. Casey and Wood succeeded in placing him across the keel of the boat there to meet his sad, lamentable fate. In about thirty minutes alter this, the sloop Atlas, Captain Whitlock, from Middletown, hove in sight, and succeeded in picking up the three?poor Bassett quite dead,and the other two nearlyso. They were immediately taken into the cabin by the humane and kindCapt. Whitlock, and Dr. McConib was sent lor the moment the sloop touched the wharf. After great exertions Wood and Casey were fully restored to life, But poor, honest, faithful Bassett was past all recovery. He died from exposure on the bottom of the boat while in sight of land. We give these melancholy particulars with the sincerest regret and sorrow. Both of the deceased had been for some time in our employment, and Bassett, as our chief news collector, for upwards of three years. We always found htm faithful, honest, and capable. Indeed he was one of the most efficient collectors in this city. Every one who knew him respected him for his many amiable qualities and unassuming manners, and spoke of his character in the highest terms of praise. He was one of the bestof husbands, and has left a wife and one child, and friends without number, to mourn over his lamentable and premature death. To us his loss is very great. His body will be taken from No. 8 Stone street, the residence of his mother, to-morrow morning, at 8J o'clock, to Babylon, Long Island, for interment. He was twenty-six years and seven months of age. We shall open a subscription for the benefit of the two widows, and head it ourselves. Tremendous Storm at Boston.?Two steamers nrrivcu yesteraay momtngirom tbe east bringing iwo days mails. We are indebted to Harnden >fe Co. and Adams & Co. for late Boston papers, and to Godfrey &r Co. for New Bedford papers. We glean from ihe.-c the following particulars of damage done by a tremendous gale which blew along the eastern coast last Wednesday night. It was a large slice of , the storm we experienced in this city that same 1 aight. J In the Sound the wind blew seldom harder. Pas- i lengers who left here on Wednesday did not reach 1 Boston till 7 o'clock Thursday evening, and the i steamer that left Norwick on the same day remained at New London Thursday, after making two attempts to proceed. She arrived here at hall-past 7 yesterday morning. No boat left this city Thursday afternoon, but the Kosciusko started at 9 o'clock yesterday morning. In consequence of the severe gale, and the non ar ival of the great southern mail, with the letters for England, the steamship Acadia did not leave Boson on Thursday. She left yesterday, immediately ifterthe arrival of Harnden's mail. [From the Boston Morning Pott, Deo. 1.] In the evening, about si* o'clock, a southeast snow storm let in, which continued until about nine o'clock, when it tommenced raining, and the wind, which up to that time | tad blown moderately, burst forth from E. 8. E. with remendoua fury. Many vessels, which were riding tt anchor in the harbor, were driven from their moorngs, and either dashed against the ends of the wharves >r jammed alonside of each other. A large vessel was ilmost blown on her beam ends, an., several srhoon:rs and briira were iammed ? * 'racking?some of them with no person on board. One I >r two small vessel* were al*o sank at this wharf? ' \t Foit Hill wharf, several small vessel* were more or ess damaged. A small schooner, the June Fi*h, of St. 3eorge's, Me., was driven from her anchor against the | wharf, and Nathan Fuller, the mate, in attempting to eave the vessel, felt between her side and the wharf, and 1 kas drowned The ere v of thi* vessel state that the brig Uncle Sam had been blown adrilt, and was then driving about the harbor ; and that the ship Tyrone had parte ! her head-fasts, had swung round, and sustained considerable damage. The space between India and Central wharves was filling up fast with drifting wrecks, and those vessels at tha ends of these wharves were careening as if their tall masts would turn them over. The end of Long wharf brought up several small crait, which probably wore sunk. The space between this wharf and Central wharf,-was also the scene of great destruction. The noise of falling masts, and the crashing of drifting wrecks, rose, at intervals, above the storm, and might have be- u heard even at tba centre of the city. At the northern wharves, and, in fact, at all the wh rves, more ar leas damage was sustained by n great portion of the ihipping. Such was the terrific violence or the gsle, that it was dangerous for an individual to venture to the ends af the wharves. We were in'ormed that more than * doren vessels had beeu sunk, and that the claws >f one or two of them had perished, but the names of the vessels we could not learn. This leads us to hope that such reports are exaggerated. At 3, A. M., we took another stroll along the wharves, and found thing* comparatively <[uiet, the wind having abiftedtoE. N E. Although we *uw nearly twen'y veslelfl more nr .. .. ...... 1.1 ?-1-. : . ??VVII? UUI IIU1UU *11 J' l>?r. ticulars, for mo?t ot th?fm were deserted. The schooner < Conclusion, of Gloucester, laying at the north end of T wharf, hid her item stove in, and sustained other damage. A large ship, laid to he the Riga, was driven up the dock at Long wharf, and had bt i bowsprit carried sway cloie to the knight hea la. One of the ihipi w hich arrived yesterday, wat reported to have drifted from her anchor*, and auitained great damage.? A ship at the end of Commercial wharf, wa? alio 1 reported to have suffered considerably. The barque 1 Anita, too, wai laid to have untamed some damage.? Perhaps no gale that haa visited thia placa for aome time tin* destroyed so much property in thia port in *o ahort a time We tear that a lew day* will unfold tales of ship wreck and death along our coasta, that will bring pain ind sorrow to many a bereaved bosom; for no vessel close in with land could carry sail or ride at anchor, in exposed lituations and weather such a tempest. Wo have taken so notice of the damage on the land, but, undoubtedly it i? :oniiderahle?for nothing fragile, exposed to such fnry, could escape unscathed.

More of the Latimer Case?The Mayor of Norrolk, Virginia, has called a meeting of the inhabitant* of that city and the surrounding counties on Tuewfay next, to take into conaideration the outrageous proceedings of the Abolitionist* and the High Sheriff, and other authorities of Boston, in the case of Latimer, a runaway slave, the property of a citizen of Norfolk. The excitement relative to this case is spreading with rapidity throughout Virginia and the south. What will be the result of it ? Massachusetts Eurctior.?Full returns not yet received.

Whiti Pr-aiMK, Friday, 12 o'clock M. Jamks G. Bennett? f Sia? At the opening of the Court, after the disposal of ordinary business, the Sheriff was ordered to bring upfor sentence James Sullivan, John MeCleester. and George Kensett, convicted of manslaughter in the fourth degree, as principals in the prixe fight when McCoy was killed. The Court, Judge Rugglei acting, then proceeded to pass sentence, as follows :? James Sullivan, to the State prison for two years. John MeCleester, eight months in the county jail, and a line of $500, and to stand committed until (he line is paid. George Kensett, four months in the county jail, and a line of $200, and to stand committed till paid. The sentence of Sullivan ia considered excessive, and a petition was immediately drawn up in Court, and signed by a number of the members of the bar and others, to obtain his pardon through Executive clemency. The recommendation to mercy, on the part ol the jury that returned the verdict, and the fact that Sullivan was not a principal in the combat, tire redeeming points in liia behalf, and should have been sufficient argument in the minds of the Court not to have inflicted so severe a penalty, lhil he will be pardoned, and is as much, if not more, entitled to it than Webb was. The wife of Sullivan, an interesting, pretty little woman, was here to witness the sentence, and received it with heartfelt demonstrations of grief. Indeed, I have not heard a single individual who approves of the decision of the Court. The Court then proceeded to sentence the black boy Watson Simmons, who was convicted of an assault and battery with intent to commit a rape on a little white girl, aged only nine years. He was sent to the State Prison for five ;years. The next and last called was a Five Point so&plock, named Albert Hamilton, who was convicted of burglary in the second degree for robbing a farmer's house, and sent to the State Prison for five years The Jury, in the case of Charles F. Miller, indicted for an assault and battery on Counsellor Mills, have just come into Court with a verdic^of guilty. The sentence will be postponed til) the next term of the Court, which will be in February next, at an extra session called to .'try the remainder of ihe prize fight trials. Sullivan will not be removed for several days. In the meantime his friends should be active in endeavoring to procure his pardon, as well as that of McCleester and Kensett. I send this in time for your Friday's second or evening edition, and as you will have ite xclusively, you will thus be enabled to supply your readers in the city, as well as your northern and southern exchange list, with the information one day in advance of all the papers in New York. I shall come down tomorrow. The reception of the above information yesterday afternoon cieated considerable excitement, and as it was contained exclusively in our second edition, not a copy was left in the offiee at four o'clock. Since its reception, the following petition to the Governor has been put in circulation for signatures, a copy of which will be found at our desk To the Governor of the State of New York The undersigned, residents and citixens ef the State o( New York, beg leave respectfully, but in the mostearn"st manner, to solicit that your Excellency will he pleased to extend to James Sullivan the executive mercv, and to gran' him a full pardon for the oCTence of which he stands convicted at the late Oyer and Terminer Court, held at White Plains, in the county of Westchester, in this State, and for which he Is now under sentence of two years in the State Prison. Your petitioners, with all respect for the law, and its principles, tending to the welfare of society, beg leave to state that they consider it their duty to make this appeal to the Executive, the trustee of the people's mercy. 011 the substantial ground that said Sullivan, never at anytime bad any foresight or knowledge of the un.ortnnate result (if thfl rnmhof hid WAnn T.illv and MisT/ssr???"' - rence* and scene* of a similar character had been countenanced by large masies of our community, so as to mislead even the circumspect and weary. Views of this and a similar character in this case, demand, in the minds of your petitioners, ti^at the executive merer should 1?* fully extended to the party sentenced. New Ynsa.DeC. 1842. Treason in Rhode Island.?The argument upon the validity of the indictments for treason, was concluded in the Supreme Court of Rjiode Island on Wednesday, by the Attorney General, on the part of the State. The Court takes time to consider before rendering their decision. Sudden Death.?Mr. Dwight Foster, one of the well known clerks at the Astor House, died suddenly yesterday afternoon, of a billious attack. He was a very correct young man and universally esteemed in life, and now deeply regretted in death by all who knew him. He died at his own home, although he was at his poet at the hotel only the day before his death. Navigation on the Hudson.?The steamer that left Hudson on Wednesday afternoon, had to take shelter at Kingston, where she remained until Thursdaay morning, and arrived here in the afternoon. Above Hudson the ice is solid, and between that place and Rhinebeck there is a good deal of Moating masses The navigation is unobstructed below Rhinebeck. From Africa.?The U. S. alcop-of-war VandaIta, Captain Ramsey, is below, having just arrived from the eoast of Africa. Thanksgiving in massachusetts.?This day was a great day in Massachusetts. It is estimate4 that at least two hundred marriages took place between sunrise and sunset. In the single town of Ware nine weddings came off. Cltv 1 Ik ## I llir,nr? Bigamy.?An Irishman named John McCafferty was arrested yesterday and arraigned before one of the Justices of the Lower Police on a charge ol bigamy. It was shewn that in January 18*0, he was married to Margaret Quinlan by the Rev. Mr. Welch, a Catholic priest o* Brooklyn, and on the 6th of March 183-1, he was also married to Margaret Farrel, by the Rev. Henry Chase, of the Methodist Church, while his first wife was living. The only defence that the blue beard made lor his conduct was that his second marriage was not legal in his opinion, because it was not consummated by a Catholic priest. The Magiitrate thought different,however, and locked Johnny in the Tombs for trial. A Polk iv Pauox.?A Polish refugee who calls himself CasimirParriski, was committed to prison on a charge of stealing an overcoat from John McConeghty, of 59 white street He alleged extreme poverty as the cause for a commission of the crime, and hat no doubt seen better days. NrwCouisriarxiTs.?A bundle of new counterfeit $-2 notes on the Otsego County Batik have been sent iuto the market, and are well calculated to deceive by candle light. Those we saw were letter D, payable to O. W. Rtrong, dated Feb. !W, 1841, H. Scott, Cashier, Rob. Campbell, President. The signatures of the otticers are all well executed, paper light, anil a greasy appearance, engraving badly executed, and th? printing, some ol the figures in the side pieces of the bill being scarcely discernahle. Fits ?A small wood house in the rear of the dwelling UI mi. r. irrmy, rn viirnrK nroei, wan destroyed by fire yesterday morning, a little after I j o'clock, and the alarm between (even and eight o'clock, proceeded from the lip. Spr post office. The shed over the newspaper boxen took re from the pipe ol a stove used in the city despatch office. But little damage waa done, a place only a foot square being burned. Skist to the Auu'M -A woman named Abigail law son, who waa tried in the Special Sessions yesterday, for I stealing clothing from Joseph H. Mirkle, was discharged in order to be sent to her home in Boston, on account of her being deranged. She was sent to the Lunatic Asylum last evening. Horrible amd Atrocious Murder?A man named Andrew Bodine, residing in Southfleld, near the tlnarantine, Staten Island, murdered his wife some time on Thursday night, under the most atrocious circumstances. Bodine waa arrastad yesterday morning, and an inquest was hald on the body of his wift during the day. The e.vi> or the World is becoming a topic of increasing interest among all clauses, as the time draw9 near which is lo test the correctness of Mr. Miller's calculation. Those who wiah to know what the New Church (Swedenborgian) doctrine on (his great subject is, will now have an opportunity of hearing it, for the Rev. B. F. Barrett, as will be seen by advertisement, will give his first lecture nit the End of the World, to-mon*?w evening, at the Lyceum of Natural History. Some say the Swerlcnborfian view of the subject is very rational as well as scriptural. Well; let's hear all sides. This is the day for "proving all things." Happy those who obey the rest of the apostolic injunction. "Hold last that which is good-" i Late from the North.?We have received from Mr. Livingston of the express line of Pomeroy dc Co. Albany papers of Thursday, twenty-four hour* in advance of the mail. We take the following from the Advertiser of that city:? Yesterday we exjierienced our first snow storm of moment this season. It commenced about noon, from the N. E., and continued steadily to the time ot our going to orese, 9 P M., with the pro-pect of a full supply. Winter with us may therefore be considered as fairlv commenced. Thesteamer Oneida, reported to have been wrecked on Lake Ontario in the late gale is safe and sound. Hy the Western mail we have intelligence of another destructive fire at Oswego. The way-bill from Mexico has the following endorsement by the Postmaster at that place:? 4 o'clock, A. M., Nov. 29. Great fire al Oswego, beginning at Fitahugh's Mill and burning up to the bridge, when the stage left. P. M., Mexico. If this account be correct the conflagration has been indeed destructive. We believe there are three large flourishing mills, one saw-mill, one machine-shop, besides several smaller buildings in the district which the tire is said to have swept. The flank too, is on ihe corner of lhe same block- _ We shall doubtless have further narticulers of the fire 1)V this afternoon'strain of cars from the west. We have uo particulars of the fire by last evening's western mail. Pomerov & Co.'s messenger say. that everything between Pitzhugh'a mill and the bridge was destroyed, and that the fire at the latest accounts was still raging. Naval.?The new U. S. brig Bainbridge, is ordered to gel ready for a cruiz*, her probable destination being the Coast of Africa. She is to be commanded by Lieut. Zachariah F. Johnston, oi Maryland. Her crew is ready, on board the Ohio receiving ship, at Boston, and she can be despatched as soon as the officers are all appointed and join the brig. Snow at Baltimore.?About daylight on Wed- I nesday it commenced snowing, and continued throughout the day, accompanied occasionally with rain and hail. About Bunset the weather cleared up. Referee Case a*, the Bowery. Before John W. Edmonds. Dec. 3?Booth ?. Snowden.?This was an action to recover $S00, alleged to be due plaintiff for acting at the Bowery theatre last August. Mr. J. Jacesos was sworn, and stated that he was requested

by Mr. Booth to call on Mr. Snowden for the money, alleged to be due him for acting at the Bowery, or he would not play any more. Mr Snowden replied that he did not care, as he had nothing to do with Mr. Booth. Mr. Flvsn examined?I engaged Mr. Booth at Baltimore last August, to play six nights for me at the Bowery. Mr. Snowden had nothing to do with the engagement; I then got Mr. Snowden's consent to his playing at the Bowery; B oth drew his order on me for $100 of the money, and with my consent it was paid There was an express agreement made by me with Booth that he was not to receive one shilling until the close of his engagement, on account of the uncertainty ol his acting, and then the money was to be paid to Mrs. Booth. On leceiving thnorder I went to Mr. Hamblin, and begged him as a favor to let Mr. Booth have (100, and he endorsed the order, and he was paid. Crott-examined.?I was to give him 30 per cent of the house each night, and one-third to- a benefit on the sixth night. He played one week, except Friday, which ho declined to play on from religious scruples I first engaged him for six nights, and then on the fourth day of the first engagement 1 engaged him for two nights more. I was to give him $00 for the seventh night, and on Wednesday the eighth night he was to have the half of my share; he was to divide my benefit with me; I made the engagement with him at the request of his wife, and from being a friend of his for years. I paid my own expenses onto Baltimore, when I went on to engage Booth. I think the amount due to Booth on his engagement is $386. By Whiting?The two nights more were added,because Forrest opened at the Chatham on Monday night ; ho was then to take his benefit on Monday, play for mine on Wednesday, and we were to put the two together and divide. He dhl not plav either Tuesday or Wednesday ; the loss to the house on Tuesday night was $1000 at least. Com modore Stewart was here and was much disappointed Large numbers went away and got back their money; there was a great noise an disturbance, and they broke down the pit door If Mr Booth had played those two rights there would have been at least six hundred dollars more each night in the house. When I found he would not play I forbade Mr. Waldron and Mr. Hamblin from paying over to Mr. Booth or any of his friends one shilling. I told Booth on Tuesday morning he was well placarded for Wednesday night for flic hard, and he seemed pleased with it. His first night was $489 ; his second night was not as much ; he played alone ; Mr. Hamblin did not play. The third and fourth nights were about $000; fifth night about $350 ; sixth night not good ; there was a rush at the Chatham to see Forrest that night, although the house was not a good one. Counsbl.?Wc didn't want that, Mr. Flynn. Fi.vnv Ho von went nnvthinff more, srentlemen 1 Counsel.?That's all, sir. Fly**?Well, I'm heartily glad of it, for I do want drink horrid bad. One or two more witueuei were examined and the case wu adjourned at 11 o'clock at night. Court of Common Plena. Before Judge Ulihoeifer. Pec. 2?Justiu D. Miller, vs. Wills! Hawkins.?This was an action to recover the amount of two notes and a check, theone made bv defendant, of $'166,10, dated May 3, 1941, and thaother by the same, dated May 1,1941, of $113,64. The check was on the Greenwich Bank, for $110. These notes and check were given for sundry goods purchased by defendant of the plaintiff. The defendant failed. Now the defendant claims that Miller agreed to take back the goods in payment of the notes and chi ck. The plaintiff* says that tne defendant never gave baok all the goods, but only a part. The case, or rather the accounts, were somewhat confused and complicated. In the course of his charge the Judge aaid that the defendants alleged accord and satisfaction, and also a set off. The plaintiff in this case admits the defendant's set off. The only question for you is on the ground of accord and satisfaction. The rule of law on this point is that if a creditor agrees to accept even a less sum for a greater in satisfaction, then he is bound by his agreement. The Judge then recapitulated on the points of the testimony and submitted the case to the jury. For plaintiff*, J. Blunt. For defendant, Horace Dresser. Marine Court. Before Judge Sherman.

Thk Trial of Alexander for toe Murder of Louoek, in Philadelphia.?We give below the only new evidence of interest yet elicited in this case:? Thursday, 4 o'clock T. M. Thomas Taese sworn?I took him to the lock-up house at the Mayor's office ; the prisoner aud 1 had two conversations on the way ; said I "ray God, young man, what did you do that for r said he " we got into an argument about notes and he gave me the worj liar, and I plunged it into him. [Ylr. Porter here proposed to question the witness upon the subject of certain offers then made to bribe the witness to leave the city, as he had related in conversation?but the defence objected?and the court overruled the question because the conversation was not in presence of the pri loner ] John T. SHAarLEss, M. D.?We presumed his coat had been buttoned when the blow was given; it is not likely that blood would flow freely from so small a wound with the coat buttoned over it; in my opinion the cause of his death was the penetration of the heart by an instrument. By Judge Conrad?It was necessarily the came of death. By Judge B a ar on?Caused by a daggerwe thoughtsuch an instrument as that would have done it; it was brought in the offioe with blood and mortar upon it; this is the weapon brought in; we'all concluded that a powerful blow was required to pierce the clothing and flesh? we all discussed tha question, Dr. West and myself particularly, and weali concluded that the blow must have been given perpendicularly. By Judge Conrad?The distance of the two from each other must be determined by the length of the arm. Mr. Johnson resumed A man at the counter, and one at the other side, and both inclining over it, a blow like this could have been given by a person with arms of ordinary length; Mr. Lougee might have stood straight, and a man sightly inclining over, might have struck the blow. Knowing these questions would be asked in court, we tried it, and found what I have stated could be done; it is possible for a person to move about alter receiving a wound in the heart; a soldier lived niue days alter receivings bayonet wound in the heart. Cross Examined by Mr. Reed.?I cannot tell where to refer you to the case of the soldier; I read it while a student; from external examination, I could not tell what part ol the heart was penetrated; people were constantly going in and out. By Mr. Dallas?It is possible that the wound eould have been given before the counter if they stood at the same distance from each other, us the breadth oithe counter would indicate. By Mr. Phillim?The theory is that the deceased tore open the coat himself. By a Juror?There were no experiments to test in how mmy positions such a blow could have been received. By Mr. Porx?The blow must have been struck downwards from an angle of two feet above the wound. Francis West, M. D., sworn?I supposed the blow to be one of very great force say that it required all the strength of an ordinary man. By. Mr. Johnson?The track of the wound was direct; should judge deceased's arm was at hirside, because the large muscle of the chest would have partially intervened had the arm been raised, the dimensions of this dagger corresponded with the wound; the general coincidence was perfect. Mr. Porter resumed?The right arm could have been raised, and not have affected the muscle of the left arm. Cross-examined by Mr. Reed.?I can only infer the direction of the wound; I have not the confidence in making a statement respecting it, which I would have had if I made a dissection. By Judge Conrad.?I think a man too near conid not have made such a wound. t)_ u. n... .. tu- ..........1 ..... _...i. i?..: .?i.

In the midst of our political, social, and religious movements, we have lost our high sheriff, Mr. Morris, a gentleman universally liked and respected, and the son of the celebrated fioaucier of the revolution ?the only honest financier of the last, and, I believe, the present century. Mr. M. died suddenly of a disease of the heart. He was elected by the whigs in October 1811, through a split of the democratic party, and has served in all but 14 months.? There seems to be a singular fatality pursuing the whigs just now. They were in power in the lederal government exactly one month, and the old General, 1 believe, was just Baved his reputation, and the country 1 know not what, by being taken off be lore ne was maae a cat s paw ot by the party who elected him. During that one month the whigs managed to fill some of tne most important offices with their men: but theyquarrelled afterwards with Capt. Tyler ana were removed. In October 1B41, in addition to the Sheriff, the whigs, through- the same division of the democrats, above referred to, elected the County Treasurer also; but he had scarcely been in office six months before he proved a defaulter, and was superceded by a democrat. So you see the whigs won't remain in office, " no way yon can fix them." Tltis-moming's care to Hsrrisburg were crowded with applicants for the Sheriffalty, their friends, opponents and "borers." The Governor, by the amended Constitution, has the power to fill the vacancy, and it is believed he will use the'privilege with sound discretion. The body of Mr. Morris was scarcely cold when the hungry office seekers crowded the head quarters of the party with a view of ascertaining the value of the respective stocks, and, if possible, to nteke a little capital. The candidates spoken of are James H Hutchison, the defeated candidate of the democratic party in 1841, Dan. Smith, the author ot that defeat and leader of the iucorniptibles, and Lemuel Paynter, the old ex-memher of Congress of the first district, besides a whole string of political loafers of all descriptions. If your financiers want to bet. let them back Paynter; I think it would be a good spec, though Hutchison is by this time in Hamst,,,nr aew i?V For the last ten days some temjiest in aTteapot was raised by the publication of a series of attacks on the character of Gen. Reed, of revolutionary war memory, grandfather of the present William B. Reed, one of our most uistingtiished members of the bar, on whom John Sargeant's mantle was to have fallen if it had not been caught by Mr. Ingersoll. The publications were signed "Valley Forge," and the author promised to coine forth, on some particular evening, to produce evidence of the correctness of his statements. On the evening apj?ointed, however, he pretended to be obliged first to obtain the consent of some revolutionary officer, before he could proceed to demonstrations, and the editor of the MJourhaL" Mr. Whitney, vexed by these proceedings, kaadMt the manuscript over to the keeper of the Exchange, for the mspertion of the public. By this premature step, the public are deprived of a great deal of amusement, though the matter referred to in the correspondence has been familiar to all of us before a single letter was published on the subject. Members of Congrew arc flocking into town fast. The whigs seem to have established their head quarters at J ones'. Alexander will he convicted of murder in the second degree?a State prison offence by our statutes?^whtch is the utmost punishment to which our jury will consign a genteel young fellow, who loeks interesting and dresses well. Nothing like gentility in o'>r^ city?poor hearts ! Gen. Scott is here trying to make political capital ; hut the friends of Clay are inflexible. In connection with the matter there is s serious project on foot to shoiish his office, ns well as severs! otk*r offices of the staff of the United Slates army. It is * mere sinecure, the whole army being tmteifht thousand strong, though ostensibly numbering twelve thousand, and therefore reqnirirg no other commander than the Constitutional " Captain." A itnilar project, you remember, very nearly stc eeded aftertbn death ot l?en. drown, and was oily defeated by a very few votes.

Most people know that skins and hides are converted into leather by the use of tannin extracted from cert an barks, feeWhen the force and strength of the tannin is woru out, leather becomes dead, hard,dry, brittle, cracked covered with a crust, Icc. This all know. To restore, then, lile, softness, moistness, strength, smoothness, and remove all crust, iy,or blister?restore the tannin. This substance the leather never can receive the second time; but the whole virtues of it are in this article, the Oil of Tannin ? which penetrates the stillest and hardest leather, if it has been twenty years in use; and if it tears easily with the lingers, it imparts at once a strength that is utterly incredible until seen. It becomes like new leather in all respects, with a dc igntfui soilness an1 polish,and makes all leather conipleiply and perfectly impervious to water? particularly iioots, shoes, carriage tops, harness, hose, trunks, and in fact all things made of leather, giving a splendid polish, even higher than new leather h is, and at lea?t doubling its wear and durability, in whatever manner the leather is ured.
