' Tn*<iEDt, th? innuiry on which begim to-lay, will be given up to 19 or 1 o'clok e vary day, m the Evtning Herald The firat portion will begin in this evening's Herald, and will be published at 3 o'clock. Ri.i m?in is Congress?Arnold's Cheat Speech. ? (.) reporter ia Washington writes us tint he repot: . it length the debute in which Arnold, the Tennes-ee fire-eater, made a speech?the most wonderful of the session?and that he deposited it in the post office at Washington last Wednesday night. IVe hum not received if?what it the mutter trith the pott office? Dotell. Ci ui t-s Case is English Bankruptcy?A Parallki, to Webb's ('ask.?We give to-day the tirst por ion of the proceedings in a case of bankruptcy, wh, it took place in London last November -one that It: - c'.-nted a great sensation in Englan !. We nllud" to tit-- bankrupt v lor ii200.(K)0. [jil 000,0001 of Lord Hunlingtower, the grandson and heir-apparent of the present Countess of Lysart. This noble scion of the Lnglish nob'lity was born in 1791, anil is named Lionel-John-William Tollein.iche, Lord Hunlingtower. His ease of bankruptcy is the most curious and remarkable we have , -en, til ! can only be paralleled by those of Webb's, or of Anthony Ley's, or some others yet to be given. It appears that his Lordship, like Webb, dealt in blood horses?but to a much larger extent. We also find politics,paintings, yachts, and variousother matters in the report of his examination; but so far, we can lind no poudrette?no psalm books?no tables?no tailors?no butchers?no bakers either among his liabilities or assets. So far, so well. Oue thing we must remark. The Condou newspaper press publishes the whole of the tacts in these cases of bankruptcy, whetherthey belong to lords or to commoners?and no one ever thinks of questioning their right and duty to do so. It has been left for such men as Col. Webb and Anthony Ley, to attempt such a thing in a free, republican land. Preposterous!?worse than preposterous ! The second day's examination of his Lordship, which is extremely rich, will be given to-morrow. Fire la noblttu! Reduction of Pour Office Charges.?We understand that the Postmaster General lias assembled the postmasters of the principal cities at Washington this day, for the purpose of making investigations relative to the propriety of reducing the rates of postage and curtailing the exercise of the frankin? privilege. We also understand that a large portion of the credit newspaper press are endeavoring to induce the Postmaster General tostopthe transmission of newsiwpers by railroad. To attempt tn this way to interfere with the dissemination ot cheap knowledge and literature all over the country, y means of railroads, would be most unjust, and won; i be besides exceedingly unsafe on the nart of tli- Pi Ofiice Department. In point of efficiency , id nocu "cy of management, that department has not a gi : deal of reputation beyond their necessary wants "st now, and if such a measure as that suggest* l>y the credit papers be entertained, the depart m nt will find themselves very speedily in a minority unongst th ir beat friends? verb ?at. I-'anat! sm or Parson Chekver.?The expression ofindig: it feelings very naturally excited by the outraged.. and bigoted conduct ?f the orator, at the New En. ud celebration, has produced some amusing quibb'ing on the part of the gentlemau'sfriends. Tin* Com : rcial Ad varttser says Parson Cheever was not at the >Miner at all. But did he not in his address proscribe,in the tnosi fanatical and impudent manner all "foreigners'!" Did he not say thatto admit the natives af Europe to citizenship here was like injecting virulent poison into the veins'? T!i nr.s-rable apologetical quibhle will not save ,c end gentleman. Thr tellonr, we are sure, yequ unworthy to sit at the dinner. He isuntit 10 d: e with any body, except, perhaps, with Elder K" ipp and the priests of Champlain. The f.icts of th" incident are these:?The remarks of Mr. Davis win not directly in reply to Mr. Cheever's, because Mr. C. wa9 not present at the dinner. A sentini' at was given, " The Clergy," to which the Rev. Mr Andrews replied, who followed in the same train of thought that Mr. Cheever had started in I he morning, and which was at the time considered illiberal and bigoted. At a late hour, Geo. Bancroft, Esq., of Boston (the historian), offered a sentiment. The President of the Society called on Mr. G. Davis, as a Knickerbocker, and native of New York, to reply to it. And in this reply Mr. D .vis commented on the general principles aarxpres I by the Rev. Mr. Andrews, whofollowtd in the fa ' p* of the Rev. Me. Cheever. These are the lac;s, noil under this state ol the case, we cast back with utter loathing and contempt, the falsehood in the teetli of 8tone, with the additional disgrace of mean, pitilul quibbling, fastened to him like a hump of sin on his back. We ha , among other communications on this subject, i vivedthe following, which expresses the subetanct if them all, and shows that Mr. Cheever's conduct i properly appreciated among the New Englanders:? To the Editor or the Herald? Dear Sir ? I di-' in it my duty, as a New Englander, to inform you that the sentiments you have expressed ia this ! iy's paper, in relation to the conduct of Mr. t'heevr, a wou!d-be-Yunkee, are warmly coincided in by at h ast nine-tenths of the audience that attended tin" anniversary of the New England Society, of wh <-h I have the honor to be a member. Go ert. Your course is warmly applauded by A Genuine Yankee. Dec \a, 1812. Exi isertoN of Fraud.?The value of the New York Iterald to men of business in the numerous expo-it i' s of fraud that it has presented to the public i. iring the part few years, thus preventing the horn ^t portion of our community from e wily snar s of the rogues that always infest society, and who an ready to pounce upon the unwary at a moment's notice, has heen so often mnde apparent, that it * scarcely necessary to allude to it, except in a general sense. Dur . lasr spring, it will be remembered that a new sy stem of fraudulent practices was adopted in this city by a number of reckless and ca'culating villain-, not only to deprive and defraud the poor and tie ly emigrant of his little means, as soo as I o ti i ior^ iiiuin Attr nlntro huf ulu/t f/i un/i rino i vo the confiding and honest young men of our own soil, who, in an earnest desire to obtain situations where they could by their honest labor earn an honest livelihood, would be induced to part with their ready funds to secure such employment In this bustnetw the notorious organ of shinplasterism, " Beach's Sun,"' was the medium through which these swindlers circulated their fraudulent p'opositions, to the effect 'hat agents were wanted to enable the owners of the " Great Western Transportation Company" to carry on their extensive business, and young men, who could advance their employers the sum of ?500 as security, would receive situations, as agents, with salaries of ?1200 per annum. I n.y after day these deceptive propositions were presented in the columns of the "Sun," and day after day did the authors cheat and swindle all who could be induced to advance money on the terms proposed. During this time the only paper in this city that awakened the attention of the community on this subject, was the Herald, and on the 30th of April, from a publication made in its colums.Iiobert Griffith, the prominent actor, who occupied an office at 55 Pearl street, was arrested, and lodged in th" City Prison. Hi* partner, or chief clerk, David ^p"<>n, escaped, and ha* not since been heard from. >ince that time the practices of these men were broken up and attPr the usual law's delay, Griffith was tried la?t week for conspiracy and fraud, convicted and aenl to the Penitentiary for ?x month*. k minim i i an? ?mm The Movements op Fanaticism.?There is very ittle danger o our forgetting that the spirit ol fanaticism is stili in a state of active existence amongst is. It is always to be found making its manifestations in one or other form. We h id occasion, the 'titer day, to refer to the burning of Protestaut Bibles by infatuated Catholic Priests; and also to the intolerant proscription of the same races of men 'runt amongst whom his own ancestors had their origin, by a Parson Cheever,from the Slate of Maine. We had nnother individual thanking God, it a public dinner in this city, that the poison of foreign blood, did not circulate in his veins; and now we have another outbreak of this fanatical insanity tt Salem, which is thus described in a Boston paper.? Ei.dkr Ksai'P is Salem?Great Excitement.?The Elder has been lecturing night and day in Salnn for several weeks and has made quite a religious excitement is that peaceable city. A few evenings since he gave notice from the pulpit that he intended to devote an entire lecture to the subject of Universalis , an t that he should "break the back" of that doctrine. Having assigned Wednesday evening for that purpose, a large audience assembled at Mechanics' Hall, full of curiosity After the introductory services hud been completed, and a collection taken up to delrsy the ex,|>rn>cs, the Elder announced 1 iiiii 111 cnn'ti|iieiice 01 me inn mcucy ol the went her, hu should deler "breaking the hack' ufthe doctrine of UniverMlitm, to the next evening, tvhen lie should do it, lair weather or foul Many ot tin-atidh-ucc being disappointed, arose to depart, and some confusion took place in the hall, to allay which, sev-ral hiised. Mr. Kuapp, who was in the pulpit. then reprimanded the audience very severely, churg 1 the Universalis!* with making the disturbance, called them ti ry Serpents, and told the rest of the congregation to listen, and hear how they "hissed " On Thursday evening an immense audience assembled ?there was not a place left vacant all over the house, and everyone male and female, appeared to be on the tiptoe ol expectation. The Elder delivered a sermon of more than two hours in length, in which he denounced Universalism all over the United States in geueral, but Salem, Marblehead, Providence and Boston, in particular.? lie called them hy no very flattering names, und said that robbers, murderers, highwaymen, loafers and ragamuffins, were Universalis!!,and that their ranks were lull of I licentiousness and corruption. He said they had opposed him wherever he preached, and hissed him from place to place, like rattle-snakes He said the devil's own secretary was in the meeting taking notes for printing, and he hoped he would use him gently. The sermon wasoneof the richest things ever delivered, and we hope it will ha printed in a pamphlet lorm. There were several out-breaks during the evening, hut on the whole as peaceable as could be expected from so dense and mixed ail audience, and in justice to the denomination whose hacks were br> ken, they behaved quietly, and with much grace and dignity under the infliction. Here is the same ideniical spirit of bigotted hate, which animated Paul before his conversion, and which .breathes nothing but slaughter and death against all who differ front its unhappy subjects. The Catholic priests at Champlain?Parson Cheever in New York?and the llev. Elder Knapp at Salem, are all animated by the same feelings. It is the same spirit that kindled the flames of the auto rla-fe ?that debared ttie- Unman Cutholic irom all political privileges?and that |iersecuted the innocent Quaker to the death. One day it is Anti-Popery fanaticism, the next it is Presbyterian, in another it is pu: Tunica], again it assumes the form of a "moral war." But I he manner in which these fanatical outbreaks are met, is strikingly indicative of the rapid progress of the decisive struggle between liberality ,iuu intolerance?oeiween charity and prejudicebetween light and darkness. The world has become too enlightened for bigotry to flourish. Intolerance may exhibit his demon-visage, stained with the blood of patriots and martyrs?bigoted fanaticism may clank her chains, and shriek for the return of the horrors of the past, but in every case they are sure to be driven back to their dens, followed by the detestation of outraged humanity. Egyptian Antiquities.?Mr. Glidden has commenced his course of lectures at Boston on the Antiquities of Egypt, and his introductory has received a pretty severe castigation from the hands of Mr. Tasistro, as our readers will perceive from the annexed article which we cut from the Boston Notion, of which Mr. T. is editor. Mr. Tasistro, we may remark, has travelled over the same ground, which Mr. Glidden attempts to describe, and his criticisms are therefore properly entitled to respectful attention :? Mh. <Jti.inDo.Vj tvtnoim'ctour Jjicrn'ri" ov Ei.rri ? The rising importance of th<> investigation of the hieroglj phical literature nod inscriptionsol the ancient Egyptians hat heen rapidly extending the interest in this subject, from being confined to the le irned and curious throughout every rink of intellectual society. It has spread all over the continent of Europe, and now not only occupies a marked share of the attun'ion of the studious inquirer and antiquary, but engages the active enterprise o' scientific expeditions and oi' many intelligent individuals of different nations. Having ourselves traversed a considerable portion of hai laud whirs the desert anil the garden may be seen mingling their bloom and desolation together? where the love-bower and the tomb stand side by side, anil pleasure and death keep hourly watch upon each other it may well lie supposed that we visited the Odeon on Monday evening wiih no slight degree of interest. When our readers are furth rmore informed, that we have had the honor of travelling in company with the distinguished Janu s Burton, who, in Itt.H), fail ly established his claim to thu diseovwry ol one of the most important memorials connected with the explanation of hieroglyphic characters, and to whom Mr. Uliddou never once alluded, they may perhaps infer that we arc not altogether unconversnnt with the subject. When we state lastly, that we have in our possession at this moment the original letters in which the enthusiastic Champolion gives a minute description ol al. his discoveries, and from which Mr. Uliddon has derived oil the information he was pleased to lavor his auditors with on Mon lay night, we trust we may be permitted to turn up the whiteot our left eye without being deemed either ill-na'urrd or ungenerous. We listened to atx>ut one hail of Me. Glidlon's introductory lecture ou Monday evening, with considerablocomposure; foi althougn his discourse was unredeemed by the slightest glimiiu-r ol an on final irlea, yet the matter was wen puitogetnrr, tin- drawings ma le a (food show, mid hut for a certain air of pAit mailre$hip, which strong ly reminded ns of a French lootman on easy terms with his mistress, he might have made some impression on the uninitiated at least. Out when he began boasting ol his superior intelligence?when he had the assurance to tell his audience that the matter ol his discourse was purely original, and that none but himself could he possessed of so niach valuable information?and then in the very teeth of these assertions, as if suddenly conscious ol having somewhat overtasked the credulity of those around him, lie began to enter into an acknowledgment ol his wholesale plagiarisms, in hopes of deprecating the wrath of the critic, then we confess that we left the hall in no very pb asing humor, lie seemed indeed to be bent upon maKing as-ertious for the mere sake of contradicting them; for while at a certain stage of the lecture, he gravely stated that very little was known on the subject of hieroglyphics even in Europe at the present day, h? very soon alter completely upset himself by observing that so much had been written about the matter, within the last few years, that it was almost impossible to avoid adopting the opinions of others. A great portion of the lecture was occupied in endeavoring to establish the claim ol Chnmpolion to the honor of having first discovered the Key to Egyptian Hieroglyphics. I'lli>, to say the least, was a very gratuitous insult to the memory ol the lamented Dr. Young, whom Champolion in a letter, which wp shall publish in a few days, acknowledges as the pioneer in those great discoveries w liirh led to his own gigantic improvements. That this is the universal sentiments of Europe, may l>e ascertained by consulting the vi ry r Hri >us "observations rritiqtn sur la decouverte" de 1' alphabet Hieroglyphique of Kalprotli's, and "l.es collect ons d'antinuites Eg> p'iennee rttcueillies par M. La Chevalier de Pa I i nworks which are in the handsm every European scholar, but which Mr. Uliddon apparently never heard of. I he fact is that the study of hieroglyphics has been very common in England, ever since lh? publication of Cdiampoliou's complete grammar of the Coptic language, in which he proves that this is the language used in the inscriptions on the ancient Egyptian monuments- The same indefatigable individual lias also compiled a CoptiroEgyptian Dictionary, contained in three quarto volumes, andcomprising the threedntinrt dialects,viz: the Thebaic, Memplntic, and lleptanomic. To every word he has attached authorities, justifying the meaning which he assigns to it. the chiel parts being derived from the inscriptions he hat personally investigated on the several sites thi mselves. But w c cannot pursue the subject farther at present. tVe should never have thought of putting ourselves to the trouble of exposing Mr. On idon's ignorance ami shallow pn tensions, hw or hi* excessive i gntism and the ut ter want ol n?ode?ty which chsrirteriTed hi* lecture on Monday evening- It ha* celoom been our lot to ?eo ?o much arrogance and presumption wedded to 10 small an amount of mental capacity. This is certainly pretty keen catting. But there can be little doubt ol the propriety and justice of Mr. Tasistro's strictures. He isngenilemanof very considerable talent and great powers of accurate observation, and is therefore infinitely superior to Mr. Gliddon. We must, accordingly, give a much greater degree of credence to hisstatentents respi cting Egyptian antiquities, thnn to those of the lectur| er As it is, howevet, the controversy between these gentlemen is a very interesting one, and we trust they will fight it fairly out. Everything connected with the history of those remote ages,whose only authentic records are to be traced in the monumental rums of Egypt, possesses a mysterious interest which is now beginning to be nnieh more generally felt than hereretoforc It is therefore or great importance that the accuracy of those who preauma to enlighten the world on these subjects, should be carefully tested, and their blunders expoaed. t Tii* Strifes' Cot'tT or Inqutry.?The invaatiqaiion the conduct of Commander McKenze and his officers, is to begin to-cUy, and the Court of Inquiry, ordered by the Secretary of the Navy, will convene on board the North Carolina at 11 o'clock This Court is composed oi the following member*: commodork chablki stewart, PrcsidkntDo Jacob Jorea, Aiiociiti. d> aui j d.lleai, do. tlon.

The following contains the powers of a Court of Inquiry and the authority on which it is convened: Laws of the United States in relation te the N ivy. Courts of IsquiRv. Sic. 7, Art. 1, page66. And he it further enar/ed, that Courts of Inquiry may he ordered by the President of the United States, the Secretary ol the Navy, or the commander of a fleet or squadron, provided such court shall not consist of more than three members who shall be commis. sione.1 officers, and a Judge Advocate, or person to do duty as such ; and such Courts shall have power to summon witnesses, administer oaths, and punish contempt, in the same manner ax Courts Martial. But auch Court shall merely state facts, anil not give their opinion, unless expressly required so to do in the order for courening ; and the party whose conduct shall be the subject of in quiry shall have permission to cross-examine all the witnesses. Art. 2. The proceedings of Courts of Inquiry shall be authenticated by the signature of the president of the court and judge advocate, and shall,in all cases not capital or extending to the dismission of a commissioned or warrant officer, be evidence before a Court Martial, provided oral testimony cannot be obtained. We sent a reporter to the Navy Yard yesterday but lie could gather nothing of importance beyond what we have already published. The Somers lies at the whurt at the yard,and all communication with her is interdicted. Four of the crew, those who were put in irons at sea, are confined seperately from the other mutineers, on board the North Carolina. They are strictly guarded under the supposition or knowledge that they are the most deeply implicated. This investigation will excite more interest in the public mind than any inquiry, investigation, or trial that ever took place in this country. Herald Marine Intelligence.?The marine columns of the Herald present almost daily, arrivals of vessels at our ports and elsewhere, not to be found in any other sheet in this city. This fact is known to all the shipping merchants and men of business, and was made particularly manifest a few-rtays since in the Court of Sessions on the trial ol Abraham Gunst. In the course of the trial, it became very important to show that a certain vessel had arrived in this city on the 20ih of June, from Savannah. The counsel ordered search to be niude among the various "commercial sheets," as ihey classify themselves, of Wall street, but no such arrival could be lound. The passengers were confident that she arrived, and the Wall street papers were searched but no such arrival could be found. In this emergency, Jaines S. Smith. Jr. Esq., asked it they had searched "The New York Herald," when the person selected for that purpose, replied "no, he had not, as they had told him in one of the offices that il it was not in their paper he could not find it any where." The Herald was, however, sent for, and sure enough on the 20th of June the vessel was reported, anil the namvs of ihe passengers found registered in full. This is only one ef the many instances of exclu sive inlormation in our marine columns. Literary Intelligence.?Mr. Morris, the late editor of the Mirror, is making arrangements for the publication of a new periodical, under the same name, but in the octavo form, to be issued weekly, and embellished with beautiful engravings. He will obtain a great amount of the most able literary assistance. As Mr. Morris now comes into the field fresh and unencumbered, possessing great industry and talent, has many friends, and is extensively and favorably known all over the country, f rom his long connection with one of the first literary periodicals of the kind in this city, we can have no doubt of his meeting a full share of public patronage in his new enterprize. Mr. Morris' new magazine will make four in this city published with engravings and plates of the fashions. In Philadelphia they have only two. Theatricals, die. Park.?The performances were for 'he benefit of Billy Williams, and that deserving actor had a very good house. "London Assurance" was played ? M rs. Hunt sustained the character of Lady Gay Spanker in a really very tolerable manner, but this actress lias yet a good deal to learn, and as much to un'tam. The box and door keepers take their benefit to-night, and as tln-y deserve, so we hope, they will meet with ample patronage. Chatham ?Mr. Forrest played Othello with all his accustomed truth and sp'rit. The house was crammed. Miss Duff's Desdemona was quite a creditable performance. Mr. Forrest appears this evening in Bulwer's much admired play of " R ichelieu" This is one of his most finished characters, and one in which he has probably gained more laurels lhan in any other of his numerous ueiform unces. The present engagement of this great tragedian, bids fair to be the most brilliant and successful one that has ever greeted him in this city. The audiences are emphatically dense, und of the most fashionable and intelligent order. Hundreds are nightly compelled to leave the theatre, unable to procure admittance. It must be truly pleasing to the enterprising manager, to see the hearty response of the public to his liberal efforts to gratify their tastes. Nibi,o's.?M. Hley had an excellent House. He is a first rate violinist?one of the very best, indeed that has every drawn bow in this citv. Mrs. Loder added greatly to the interest of the Concert. We hope Mr. Bley will soon repeat it, but he must reduce the price of admission. On Thursday next Mr. Horn repeats his sacred Cantata, which was so enthusiastically received at the Tabernacle. Niblo's Last Winter Concert takes place tonight. Mrs. Sutton and the Brahams appear, and from the very great attractions offered, we have no doubt that the saloon will be still more crowded than on Monday night, although it was then well filled.? This salosn is fitted up in magnificent style, and is exceedingly comfortable. Its location is favorable to the inhabitants of the upper part of the city This is Mr. Mraham'i last uppenrauce prior to his departure (or Europe. Common Council. I Boiai-o Aldcbmbh.? Tuesday. Dec.

Alderman Davis stated that the Croton Water Board had ordered one hydrant to be erected in each ward, in uiucr io ie?i ine oesi plan?that a? the wowhor Decomemill, the Board intends to continue their erection until the public wants are satisfied. 'I'he Croton Acqueduct Committee asked for the sum of 5113 64, to complete expenses for the construction of the i fountain in the Park, making its total cost,as it now stands, I 53.613 64. I The committee to whom was referred the application of Jacob Bell and Samuel Brown for a lease of the wharves loot ol Grand and Thompson stroetr, concurred therein, and the Comptroller was authorized to make a contract to carry it into i fleet, with a provis i to compel the lessees to join with the corporation in constructing a pier at the foot of Tompkins street in 184S. The same committee presented a report containing a communication from the counsel of the Board, giving the decision of the Supreme Court in favor el Henry Fuoze, of the Sixth Ward, who claims damages from an overflow of water, from negligence on the part of the Street Inspector, in not cleaning out the public sewer in the year 1S39 The report was adopted, and tha sum claimed ordered to > lie paid hy a voteo! fifteen to two?Aldermen Purdy and Smith in the negative. This decision establishes the principle that every man whose person or property is injured

The report from the Board of Assistants, authorising the counsel ol ihe Board to make application to the Legislature to compel the clerks of courts to pay all finvs collected directly to the city treasurer, and net to the sheriff, as is now the ca-'e. Alderman Pusdt opposed it; but the Board concurred in the resolution. Thu Committee on Laws reported in favor of allowing a deduction of assessment against the Mechanics' Bank, in the sum ot 5400,000, for the doss on their capital. Alderman Davits advocated the measure, and urged the propriety of allowing the comptroller to receive the assessment on $1,300,000, being the remainder of the capital, which was adopted. The Law Committee of the Board of Assistants,to whom was referred the propriety of abolishing the ottic.e of Ward Collector for arrears of tuxes, reported in its favor, and recommended the appointment of one collector and two deputies, and two clerks, to receive these taxes at an olfice in the City Hall. Alderman West stated that this measure would save an expense to the city of some $36,000 per annum, and he should therefore sustain it. Alderman Lee concurred with him. Atdermnn Cholivs moved to lay it on the table, which was negatived and the resolution was finally laid on the table till the next meeting. Communication from Croton Aqueduct Board, recommending n plan to pay the Croton Water debt. Ordered to be printed. The application from the Board of Assistants by the Comptroller,for ndvance of appropriations lor current expenses of the year 1843, was concurred in. Alderman Hatfiei.d presented a resolution, making the usual appropriation of $1000 to the Fire Department Fund, which was ordered to lie on the table till next meeting. Aiuermau woodhull presented a resolution enquiring into the propriety of either abolishing one of tho Ward Courts, or compelling the Ward Justices and Clerks to receive the lees of the office for their services, which was referred to the Law Committee. Alderman C holies presented a resolution, authorizing the Committee on Police, Watch and Prison, to enquire into the manner of transacting business at the Police offices, and also to audit the accounts of the Clerks without delay. The member of the sixth not being in his seat, the resolution was withdrawnAlderman Underwood ottered a resolution, calling u|>on the District Attorney and Justice Taylor to report to this Board any alterations they may consider necessary in the present Police sj stem. Alderman Lee moved that Justice Matsell he added to these names. Alderman Puanr moved to amend, by adding the names Justice Merritt and Recorder Tallmadge. Alderman Lee moved that the names ol all the magi strates be added. Alderman Leonard opposed the enquiry of any of these persons in an official manner, as he thought that the members ol the Board were competent to perform this duty. Alderman Pubdt concurred therein. Aldet man Boisnell moved to lay the resolution ou the table, which was negatived by a vote of II to 6.

W As the most circumspect, however, may at timea be tempted to indulge too freely in the good things of this life, it should be remembered that Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills, of the North American College of Health, are effectual in removing headache, sick stomach, loss of appetite, indigestion, and all other complaints which arise from over indulgence to the table. As an anti-bilious medicine, it is firmly believed that Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills are the best in the world , and as they aid and improve digestion and purify the blood, will most assuredly give health and vigor to the whole frame, as well as drive disease of every name from the body. BEWARE OF COUNTERFEf TS.?The public are respectfully informed, that the medicine purporting to be Indian Pills, sold by Mr. Richard Dennis, former clerk in the oltice, are not the genuine Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills.
