NEW YORK"HEKALP" *fw York, Sunday, January 8, 1843. The Broadway Outrage.?The trial in this case has resulted in the conviction of Jone of the brutal authors of the outrage. The Jury were absent from their box on'y for a few minutes. Indeed it would have been difficult to imagine how there could have been longer delay. The evidence against the prisoner was so overwehlming, and the defence so dio gU?llUBIJ MlVin.l lC, -V r.?..v r.?VVMT well aware ofwhat would be thetesult of the trial. There have been several developments made by this case and the trial, which have had a very salutary effect, in more fully awakening the attention of the peaceable and otder y portion of the community to the wretched system of police at present adopted in this city. The fact that so many ol the witnesses produced on the part of the defence, and whose evidence was of the most disgraceful character imaginable, are persons in the employment and pay of the city authorities, is one which may ol a verity startle the most indifferent to the good order and welfare of the community. Only think ol watchmen being the sworn associates of such miaf>rnantanafltAa? fnnantuH f ho Prnn^u'HV P.At. tage! Pretty guardians of the night truly! And this i is not a solitary specimen of the men to whom the care of the lives and property of our citizens are entrusted in the hoars of darkness. We believe that generally speaking a more unprincipled, corrupt, and unfaithful set of men never existed than the city watchmen. Most of them are men utterly destitute of a rag of morality or decency. They are efficient only in aiding in the perpetration of crimes of all sorts, and as in the case before us, they are ready at any time to add peijury to their other sins. Their insolence to respectable citizens has repeatedly been the subject'of complaint. Last night when one of our reports on finding the door of the Session room locked in order to prevent the access of more persons than the place could accommodate, went to the watch-house and asked of one of the watchmen the way through the prison to the courtroom, stating at the same time his object in seeking admission, he was ordered to "go about his business, and told that the watchmen had nothing to do with the Court of Sessions " A very fair sample of the good breeding of this class of public servants. The speech of Mr. Whiting was an admirable one He administered a scorching rebuke to the watchman, lamplighter and bell-ringer, who appeared on the stand, and took occasion to refer, in the most pointed manner, to the necessity for an immediate reform of the whole police system, in this city. At the conclusion of his speech, he ?{>oke in such feeling terms ol the enormity of the outrage, that even the obdurate nature of the prisoner gave way, and he could not restrain his tears. The punishment awarded by law to the crime of which this ruffian. Dingier, has been eonvicted, is confinement in the State prison for a period not less than ten years, and it may be continued for life. We rust the severest penalty will he inflicted on the persons concerned in this most revolting outrage. Such wretches should not be permitted ever again to exhibit rheirloathesome aspect in human society. The Mutiny Case.?The newspaiiers htc coming out very rapidly against the conduct of Captain .i.? j- -r.i - ? in me icucui urtgcuy vii iuc onmerri. The evidence thus fur, has created a great revolution against McKenzie?and hardly a pa|>er that has spoken of it, that does not consider the execution a high handed and unnecessary measure. The execution of Cromwell appears to have been entirely without cause?without evidence?and without necessity. People begin to think it time for thn Grand Jury to interfere. United States Relations with China.?We give in another column the Message of the President, relative to our commercial and diplomatic relations with China. This is a highly important movement, and may lead to vast consequences beneficial to the country. The next point after the organization of such a measure, is to select a proper person to fill it. We trust that great carejmay be taken in this selection? and that none may be sent to China who does not possess tact and 'diplomatic talent suitable for the service. otj- Nicol, the Defaulter, is still the great talk in Wall street, and will inevitablv lead to some curious explosions. The business is only begun. It is now said that Nicol, besides his legitimate theatre, kept an illegitimate establishment at Glencove?he had also a pew in church?a fast trotting horse, iScc. <tec. This, it seems, is one of the richest cases that we have heard of in a long time. Congress.? Some of the silly newspapers are finding fault with Congress. This is illiberal and ungenerous. Congress is doing nothing, and the less they do, the better it will be for the country. City Intelligence. Fire two Pbriosi Smothered to Death.?Be tween the hours of three and four o'clock on Saturday morning, a fire was discovered in the attic of the twostory brick hotel, called, the Hickory House, No. 480 Pearl street, nearly opposite City Hall Place. The rooms were occupied by several lodgers, who were asleep at the time, and who escaped from the Are'and smoke with much difficulty. The flames then extended to No. 486, the house adjoining, occupied by Joseph Dreyfous, one of the Custom House Inspectors, and also by William Brown, a porter in the employ of Coffin, Bradley Ic Co., Commission Merchants, 44 Exchange Place. Mr. Dreyfous, with his family, occupied the second story front room, basement, and two of the attic bedrooms. Brown, with bis wife, rented the second story back room, and attic bed rooms. The inmates of this house were not aroused until the building was filled with smoke from the adjoining premises,which were burning with great rapidity. After descending to the street, Brown returned to the upper part of the house and succeeded in bringing down a bureau.? A German servant girl, who resided with Mr. Dreyfous, named Caroline Goerlitr, who had slept in one of the attie rooms, after descending to the street, alto returned, to ob tain some clothing from her lodging room. Brown also went into the attic a second time to secure some of his pro perty, and while there, the smoke became so dense that they bath fell upon the floor of one of the rear rooms, and when found the trirl was dead, an PBrown nearly so ? Their bodies were brought down stairs as soon as possible, but all .ittempts to revive Brown were unsuccessful. A ) uiing man who bad been visiting tfce girl Caroline had selected this day as the time to make urrangemeats with Mr. Dreyfous for his marriage with her, and it is sum>ose lthat her anxiety to secure the wedding dress of her mother, which was in her had room, and which she ha 1 detirad to wear at her marriage, led to h?r lingular death The building occupied by Dreyfous and Brown, belonged to the Lorillard estate. The furniture ot both was much injured by fire and water, arid the cttic rooms burned out. They were without in irance. The Hick ory House, where the lite commenced, Mielonged to John V. I'arr, baker, who occupi* 1 a building in the rear. It was tenanted by Messrs. Schlilt k Wagner, who wore insured on their furniture and stock m the sum of *inno, which will more than cover their loss. The building was insured for >A)00, which will prevent any loss te the owner. The attic story was destroyed,and the lower part mo h injured by water. A coroner's inquest was held on tin liedies on Saturday, and they were then delivered to their friend* far burial Thr lower part oi the house No. 434 Poarl was occupi. ed by Joseph Horia, dyer, whose stock was considerably injured by water. Toi-ic* A loafing, thieving, rascal, named Henry Meyer was committal for stealing a coat, vest and pants irom sreaenca. uiuo iorn, ,">4J Carmine ?tre?t, and on n.arrhing hi* jiremi??? at Bloomingdale, a quantity ot other clothing waa found. that ha* since been claimed by Wra Leonard, of 181 Wooater itreet.

Oantt'i exiniulion resumed?I wii examined before that Council of Officers m to whet I knew, and I alao gav c my opinion ai to the condition of the brig; at the time of the eiecntion I heard Spencer aak the Commander if he would allow him to apedt to Mr. Wales: the Captain aaid "yea, air," or words to that effect: he allowed him to apeak to him; the Commander called Walea; , he came up and Spencer shook handa with him,and Spencer aaked Walea if he would forgive him; I did not hear what Walea replied, aa I went farther forward; I heard Cromwell amy that he waa innocent, and for to tell hia wile and Lieut. Morria that he died with an innocent mind; I waa on the larboard aide, and Spencer and Small were on the atarboard aide, and I could not tall what they said; the gun waa fired and they were run up; attar that the handa were piped down, and I believe piped to dinner: after that they were turned up, and tha Captain requested them to give three cheera to the American flag, which they did; alter that the hand* went to dinner. By Judoe Advocate?Sergeant, whet wai the discipline and anbordinatien of the crew between Now York and Madeira? A.?It waa very good; alter that I o be erred that the hand* were growing rather stiff among themselves and surly: an order had to be frequently repeated before they would obey it. " ji'doc Advocate?How was it after his arrest and before the execution, better or worse ? A.?Worse, in my opinion. Judoe Advocate?After the execution did it grow better or worse ? A?Much better. By Judoe Advocate?You were examined, you say, befoie the council of officers ; what opinion dip you give 1 A?I gave my opinion that the brig was in a very dangerous condition, and that her safety was in jeopardy. Q. ? Why did you judge so? A.?From what I heard Spencer and others say, the questions Spencer asked me, and from Cromwell taking the monev and asking me not to take any further charge of it; and from seeing Spencer and Small talking together, and being of opinion that the brig could net be taken by Mr. Spencer alone, immediately suspected that Cromwell and Small were complicated; Cromwell and Small seemed to be in iow spirits, as if something laid on their minds. By Judoe Advocate?Was your opinion asked as to the probability of an attempt to take the brig after the at rest, and whether it waa safe without the execution ? A?ft was ; and 1 gave my opinion that there would be an atttmpt at rescue, and that the brig was not safe with out me execution. Garty further stated it as his belief both then and now, that after Spencer, Small and Cromwell were put in irons and the officers were armed, that the brie was not sate from an attempt at rescue, and that such attempt at rescue would hare been mads; and if it had been made that he believed then, and doea now,it would have been success. ful; there were no officers on the deck then, only tbs officers of the watoh, excepting at times there might have been more. Q?Can you name any persons whom you think would have attempted a rescue? A.?No, I cannot; but on the morning of the 97th, Warner said to me, "There is great work going on now." I replied, ' Yes, there is, but no more than fbeheve necessary." Something was said about the officers being armed, and Warner replied, "What could they do if the crew made a rush?" I replied I thought IS or 14 of them would drop at once. I recollect nothing more worth mentioning touching this enquiry. By Capt. Mckenzie?Were there any causes er remarks made by Warner or others which induced you to believe that the greater pnrt of the apprentices were acquainted with the projected change of a (ministration on hoard of the Somers, and hoped to profit by it? A.?No, sir, I never heard any such remarks. By Commander McKenzir.?'sit your opinion from all you knew or saw, that the apprentices knew of Spencer's project? A ?t am ot opinion that a number of them knew of it? whether a majority of the crew or not, I cannot say. By Commander McKenzie.?What did you observe of Wilson on the night of the 26th of November, while in his hammock 7 A.?I obserri-d ithnt he was quite restless, looking up from his hammock, and looking round the deck; 1 was rather suspicious of him on that account, and whenever the watch was called 1 turned out myself, and leant against my hammock, with my naked sword in my hand, the blade'of it under my blanket?for the reason that I thought there might be a rush made into the steerage as the watch were turning out: 1 thought if there was a rush to be made, it would be at the relieving of the w itches. By McKEtsrir?Did Wilson mutter, or curse the brig 7 A. -Not that I heard, fc By McKknzie.?Were j-ou not subsequently removed into the Ward room to sleep, for greater safety to sour lilel | A.?On the'night ot the -27th, I sleptjin the Ward room tor safety. By Juduf Adyocate.?At whose suggestion did this come about 7 A ?Lieutenant Ganseroort ordered me to take my hammock in there. Br McKepzie?Did thj'crime of theft increase after you left Maleiral A?Ye?, sir. I don't recolleot only one case previous to leaving there. Mr. Heiseell was here called, and produced the original depositions taken by the council on hoard the Som -rs, and also a certified copy of the same. The original has been in his possession ever since. Part of the original is in my hand writing,and part in Mr. Wales'. These originals were submitted to Commander McKenzie by myself previous to the execution. They were sent to him before the letter, recommending the execution. Q.?When did Spencer draw the razor case?on hoard, or before 7 A.?I think he drew it with a razor in it after he came onboard; 1 cannot name the day. Mr. Wales was here called, and stated where his handwriting began in the depositions, and some other unimportant points respecting them. Sinrunl rDn.J.

Advocate?Is that depoiition correct 7 A.?It i?, with oneor two exception*, [which were stated and corrected.] Charles Stewart, a petty officer, Capt or the Forecastle, sworn?1 was on board the Somen; I first heard of the intended mutiny on the night Spencer was arrested: and learnt it from one ot the officen?as they said. I had frequently seen Spencer talking with Cromwell. They appeared to be intimate; I have seen them talking together on the forecastle, and on Jacob's ladder, in a low tone; 1 could not hear what they said, although within five or six feet from them, night and day, as my duty always required me on the forecastle. I have seen them talking together a number of times. I have seen Spencer give Cromwell money. No one on board ever said anything to me about taking the vessel. The order and discipline on board were very good till we arrived at Madeira. After leaving Madeira something very extraordinary occurred?the conduct was not so well?some on board looked very sullen?the craw were very slack in obeying orders up to the time of Spencer's arrest. During the time the prisoner* were in confinement, the crew used to stand three or four in number together; but I dontknow what they were talking about. Tnere would be several of these knot* or groups of men about the deck ; I was examined at the council of officer* on board the Somers ; I gave the opinion at that time, and 1 think so still, that the vessel was not safe, while those prisoners were on board, on account of their numbers, and the few mem on board to guard the vessel; there must have been more who had something to do with it, but I cant say who they were.

Stewart's deposition wa* then read to him as it was taken down at the council; he said it wa* correct, fit contained nothing of special interest, more than what ha* already been given.] In answer to questions by Commander McKenxie?Spencer once gave me one glass of brandy for scrubbing his pantaloons, lending him his mattrass, i nnd doing several other favors j no grog was served out on board the Somers; I knew this fact when 1 shipped-, the commander was humane, more so than usual.

Before we got on the Coast of Africa, Spencer said to me I wish I had our launch, and with ten such men as I could pick out from the crew, 1 could make our fortune. I replied, "why, Mr. Spencer, I should think you must be for taking that brig " [There I was a brig then in sight.] He said ") eg, he was." 1 replied " it would be hard to find ten men of our crew to takesuch a vessel." He said, "ves, be could find ten such men," and named several of the crew, and asked my opinion about them. Ilenamed Wilson, Cavnnaugh, McKinlev, and Oreen. He once asked m<- if I had ever bt en in a slaver , I told him 1 had not; lie has never said any thing to me about pirates, nor the Isle of Pines ; Spenrer was very intimate with Cromwell; I have seen tbem more intimate than I ever hefora saw an otficer with one of the crew ; I was on deck when the boom tackle was carried away ; Cromwell and Small were the only one* of the crew w ho understood navigation, as far as I know : Cromwell told me that Spencer hail given him $15 ; I was examine 1 hcfori Uie council of otficers, and gave an opinion, which was that it would not tie very safe to undertake to get the brig to the coast with so many prisoners on lioard, as we were i onrly manned, and I l> lieved that must of the big boys were implicated in the plot; I believed so because I heart from >lr.

Before Recorder Tallmadge, Judge Lynch, and Aldermen Underwood and Martin. The Broadway Cottage Hape Case. Fourth Dst?Saturday. The trial of William Dingier, impleaded with Gabriel Hatfield and John Underhill, on charge of rape commit ted on the person of Ann Murphy, at the Broadway Cottage, adioining Maeonic Hall, on Saturday, Dec.S, waa resumed from yesterday. The prosecution was conduct o-l by the District Attorney, aided by Jonas B. rhillips, Esqr. Wm M. Price and L. B Shepherd, Esqs., lor defence. The other prisoners, Hatfield and Underhill, were also in Court during part of the day. The immense crowd that has been in attendance each day during this exciting trial, were at their usual poets in the vestibule oi the Tombs, long before the doors of the Court Room were opened. At nine o'clock, sufficient persons were admitted to fill the seats below and the gallery above, when the doors were closed and no person allowed to enter except the jurors for the term, witnesses in the case, and gentlemen connected with the press of the city. We omitted to mention yesterday morning, that during the recess for dinner, on Friday, the jury visited the Broadway Cottage, and examined the location of the premises, and particularly the rear building, where the rape is said to have been committed. The Court assembled at about halt-past nine o'clock, and the jurors, who ha.i been kept together over night, at (ha Carlton Hoiiip heinor rallosl (Ka r.kiiao nrnr AAflod. Mr. Whiting rote and aaid, that the sister el the girl Ann Murphy, who had arrived in town on Friday, had been requested to be in attendance thia morning at a witneaa, and that ihe had given the number of the street (he resided in to Colonel Jones, the keeper of the City Prison, who had mislaid it by accident. He said that he had ordered an officer to go alter her, and {presumed that she would soon by in Court. A delay of half an hour now took place,when the Court intimated that L. B. Shepherd, Esq. one of the counsel for defence, who was to commence summing up, had better proceed,and when the witness came into Court, she could be examined. This was objected to by both counsel for defence, as it would be impossible for them to open the summing up,anless they were acquainted with the characterof all the testimony to be presented by the prosecution. The CouaT then oi-dered that the prisoners in the city prison, who had been ind:cted and not arraigned, should oe orougni up lor mat purpose. A dozen were Here brought into Court, being a mixture of black, white and yellow, and among them were the black burglar, Ben 81ater, and his white accomplice, John Moffatt, alias Williams, against whom are some fifteen charges of burglary and half a dozen of arson. Also, Michael J. Sallenger, the German forger of 1841: young Frazee, the burglar, pickpocket, tic. and about naif a dozen others. Having all entered a plea of not guilty to the charges alleged against them, they were sent below ; and The Coubt then requested that Mr. Shepherd should proceed with his summing up on the part of the defence. He objected, until the District Attorney had concluded the evidence for the prosecution. The Diitbict Attorney stated that he presumed the sister of Ann Murphy would soon arrive; but he had no particular desire to bring her upon the stand as a witness, unless the defence insisted upon it. The Court then directed tnat Mr. Shepherd should proceed, with an understanding that the witness should be examined whenever she came into Court. With much reluctance, Mr. Shepherd then commenced summing up, and had proceeded but a few moments,when a note was handed him which he stated was from Mr. Price, his associate counsel, who protested against the defence being compelled to sum up until the evidence for prosecution was concluded. Tha Court ugain requested Mr. Shepherd to proceed. At about II o'clock, while he was addressing the jury,for defence, the sister of Ann, who had been sent for by the District Attorney, came into Court, accompanied by an officer, nnd it was then urged by the prosecution that she should be examined The counsel for defence objected, and Mr. Shepherd continued his able summing up until about half past one o'clock, occupying nearly "three hours, when? Jonas B. Phillips, Ecq. followed for prosecution. Wm. M. Prick, Esq., replied lor defence. During his summing up, ho presented the reported evidence, as contained in tlie New Tork Herald, and was about to read certain passages, when the District Attorney ohleeted ?? it whs contrary to practice to introduce reported newspaper testimony. He said lie doubted not the entire correct ne*g of the report, but he preferred that the gentleman would read from his notes. Mr. Price replied that the report, as oontained in the Herald, was far more correct than his notes, and he felt it his duty, at that period, to return his thanks to the reporter of that paper, for the c.ire and attention which he had evinced in giving a true and faithful report of the evidence in the case on trial. The Court assented that counsel should read from the Herald, and .Mr. Price proceeded with his argument After an eloquent and argumentative speech, ho closed near 4 o'clock, and the court took a recess until 5 P. M. Evening Session. During the intermission, the entrance to the court room was as crowded as at any previous time since the commencement of the trial, and about the hour (or the re-trembling of the Court, the vestibule was overflowing with the crowd. At Ave o'clock, the Court having re-assembled, District ! Attorney Whiting commenced his argument to the jury. He dwelt with great force and severity upon the contradictory Icharacter of the evidence for defence, and with much eloquence and feeling in allusion to the poor, unfortunate, and friendless girl, who had been violated and ruined by the ruthan gang, who made the Broadway Cottage their place of lesort and refuge. In the course of his speech, Mr. Whiting made a most eloquent vindication of the Irish lumale character. He highly eulogised that deep and almost instinctive love of virtue, by which the lower orders of the Irish women preserve their honor and chastity,amid all the temptations of poverty. The females of na nation on the globe were so distinguished for virtue, as the women o< Ireland. Mr. Whiting's remarks on this point excited great feeling amongst the audience, and it was with difflcnlty that the applause was hushed. During his allusion to the situation and sufferings of the poor gir , several of the jurors were seen to shed tears, and the audience wat excited in the greatest degree. In dissecting the testimony of the defence, he selected that given by Joseph Carlisle, one of the newly appointed keepers of the City Prison, Andrew Carney, a newly apnnint.wl Koll nnup nrih.ril. U.ll I~ 1. I lighter, and Peter Jacob*, city watchman, and after showing their association* with the accuied, and the nature of their evidence, (a* will be remembered by our reader*) aid, " tell u* that this branch of our police system needs no reform, and 1 will ash you to turn to the fiightftil picture which this trial presents. Unless something is done, and that speedily, with a system that sustain* such men, the whole superstructure of justice will be overturned, and all morality, all the peace and good order of society will be prostrated in the ruins." In concluding, he dwelt with much feeling and eloquence upon the situation of the prisoner, the enormity of the offence charged against him, and the duty of the jury ti|weigh impartially and without fear, favor or affection, the evidence presented before them, and to decide in accordance with such mature deliberation as their consciences and oaths would dictate. During his speech he was frequently loudly applauded bv the audience, particularly by those in the gallery, and ail the efforts of the officer* and court appeared to be impossible te repress the expression of feeling. The ac. cused, who sat near him, became much affected near th* close of his speech, and wept freely while he was delivering hi* perroration. He closed at about half past seven o'clock. Rr.coaDea Tallmadoe then proceeded to deliver the following Crabob. OsisruisiEis or thb Just :?The prisoner at the bar is indicted for forcibly ravishing Ann Murphy. The first count in the indictment charge* that the prisoner at the bar, in connection with Gabriel Hatfield and John Underhill, on the 3d of December last, violently assaulted Ann Murphy, the complainant, and by force and violence enabled the prisoner at the bar to ravish her. The second count in the indictment makes a similar charge against them of an assault upon her, and that she was then ravished by Underhill, and the third count contains a similar charge against Hatfield. This trial, gentlemen, involves no very important principles of law, save that mere definition of the offence with which the accused is charged. ne < CDnrgea, as i nave netors remarked to you, with lorcibly violating the peraon of Ann Murphy. It ia nacea*ary toconititute thia offence that, on the part of the proaecution, they ahould eatabliah the fact concluaivaly that ahe waa ravished?that her person was violated : and net merely that, hut that it was forcibly violated?that it waa done by violence?that the connection between them waa involuntary on her part. From the very able and zealous manner in which the facta that have been elicited by the testimony In thia case, has been presented to you by the counsel ; the necessity on thepartofthe Court to go very minutely into the examination or detail of these facta has in a great measure been superseded. Vou have heard those facts with gic.it patience from the witnesses themselves, and have carefully attended to their examination, *o that every feature of the case, Ixjth as it respects the prosecution and the d-tence, have been presented in bold relief before you. I sball, therefore, content myself by calling your attention to the prominent facts in the case and those Oil wnlcti It appe.u s to me your decision must depend. And in the eiaminution of this testimony, gentlemen, it is material to recur in the first place to that given by Ann (Murphy. It is a simple narration on her part of the occurrences on the evening on which this outrage was committed. [The Recorder here rend his minutes of the glrl'stestlmony, which it is unnecessary for us to repeat, as it has beau already reported by us in lull. The testimony of the next witnesses, the watchman, Jacob, Slokely, Courtney, Krugnr, and Bache, is recapitulated in the same manner, nnd for the same reason is omitted here] Mr. Bache st; tea Hint ho is an inmate of thi am'1 bull ling ill which the outrage was committed that he heard a similar cry of distress to that described by the other witnesses?that it appeared to come from the rear of the building. So too says Catherine Doyle. She occupies a room in Kenyon's,in the rear. She states that the hoard a scream once or twice. It appeared to come Irom the buck, part of the house. Nu too says Jane Scharm'rhorn, who livea in the basement; she heard a scream, which seemed to come from the rear. The prisoner, she said, came down to the refectory "a minute," to use her own expression, after she heard the cry. Here I may remark tlist 1 have not altogether understood the testimony in that particular as the District Attorney has. 1 understood thu witness to state that when in the refectory she near.i tnc cry? we inarm, ine noise, ana aoout a minute after that the prisoner came down to the refectory in company with another person. District Attobosv?That is her flrst statement: if your Honor please, after Kenyon's statement 1 recalled her, and you will see in her second examination that she added further testimony on this point. Kt'COHDEB?I did not correct my minutes, if that was the second statement. Mr. Kenynr thought something was the matter when these men came down. Ha went upstairs alter he heard the cry?and the colored wowau ? iys that she recollects then in replv to Mr. Kenyon's enquiry, this man Dingier anawered that (here was nothing the matter. If, however, I ndi mistaken in this, the Jury, who were all listening attentively, will correct me. District Attorkkv I will rcn-1 it, if your Honor please irom my minutes. Its oosata.?Do so. The Distbict Attobort then read as follows When first sworn she states thus " 1 live in the basement , in the exchuuge, in the refectory ; I heard a woman scream on the night af the occurrence ; it appeared to he in the rear of the porter.house - | went to the door, but aaw and heardfDoUunf morn .butane loud^acream-^Croee-oaam ined 'Heard a woman in the bar-room talking loud, not ai loud at the tcream ; heard a woman cry ; about a minute

after the woman (topped (creaming, Mr. Dingier ana oneof the other persons came down. Then came the testimony of Mr. Kenyon; he (aye, that alter he heard the scream he went op, and then the colored woman lays she remembers that Mr. Kenyon was in the relectory, and asked what was the matter. The men came down and passed through. I asked Mr. Dingier what was the matter 1 He said nothing, and passed right on." The RrcosDi a then proceeded, and recapitulated the testimony of the remaining witnesses for the prosecution The evidence for the defence was in the same manner re. capitulated, but it is obviously unnecessary for us to repeat it here. "I did not intend,'* his Hon. then said, "to go minutely into the testimony, nor to comment on those details which have undoubtedly made an impression on your minds and solved some of the ditfloultko of the case; but I would now call your attention to aofte of the circumstance* which appear unfavorable to the prisoner. That there has been a most violent outrage committed on the person of this individual, no human being can deny.? Nay, it is not questioned on the part of the defence, that it was committed at the time she represents, and that it occurred at the place that she has stated is equally undeniable. And the first question on which this case must depend, and upon which your verdict muat be founded, is in iviniwu iu iue lueuiiiy ui ute isuirrauuor iuuitiuuiu iubi committed this grave outrage. The circumstance* which the testimony have developed, and which 1 have already remarked are unfavorable to the prisoner, are, in the first place, that the outrage was perpetrated at the house of which he was the proprietor, and that he was in the house when she entered and when she departed from it I say it is an unfavorable circumstance, for it must have appeared extraordinary to him that this Jake Roome should have introduced a female into his apartment ?should have seen him bring her back; should have heard her complaints of the outrage committed on her, and yet that he should have remainej silent, offered no protection to this outraged individual, not to enquire who was the offender, to take no measures to ferret him out and cause him to be arrested. I say that circumstance of itself, though it is possible that it may be consistent with hi* innocence, is exceedingly unfavorable to hi* character and the position which he occupies before this jury. The next circumstance to which 1 call your attention is this, that when Courtney, on his accompanying the female into the cottage and asking the prisoner if he permitted such conduct in his establishment, he should make the reply that " that female had not been there that evenings* he knew of." Now, gentlemen, he did know that she had been there. All the testimony tends to establish the fact that he was there when she came in ; nay, he himself afterwards stated that JakeRoome brought her there, and all his own witnesses establish the fact;tnat ' after she returned from the room, he was there, and came in while she was there, and heard hsr tale of wo and sorrow. And vet, in the face of all that, he states to this watchman, that he did not know that she had been there that night. I say this is an unfavorable circumstance, because had he not had some reason lor falsifying, he would have told the truth at once, and the only rerson why he did not, must hav^ been that he hoped, by falsifying; to escape from the charge. The next circumstances which would appear unfavorable to the innocense of the prisoner, is that he left his bar-room just about the time, or immediately after, the testimony says, as she came in, and did net return there again after she came from the back room. That isthe tesmntiv aC Hctron^Ar. T sov it ii nprtil 1 iar 1 v unfnrtunnto fnr this prisoner, that instead of being there at hii business in view of all the individuals present during the time of the outrage,he was strangely absent all the time the femslejwas in the room. So too, that he should have been down in that refectory just at that particular period immediately after the cry?that he should hare been down there and passed from the front of that refectory into the kitcnen. There is a possibility that he may then have passed into the room in the rear of his own part of the building, have participated in the outrage, and then passed out of the refectory. But you have examined the premises, which I have not, and you can better judge of that possibility. Then you have the positive oath of the girl Ann Murphy. She states unequivo. rally and without hesitation, that she recognized the prisonera* one o' lhc individuals who committed this violent out t age apon her person?that she knew him from the peculiar expression of his countenance? saw him while going into this back roam?that he was without a coat?that she cannot be mistaken as to his identity. And here, gentlemen, tis it nas been at all events attempted to impeach the character of this girl, and as she stands belore you unprotected and unsustaitied by the testimony of others in relation to her character for veracity and otherwise, it is proper to examine whether any circumstances have been developed, calculated strongly to corroborate her narrative. And in doing that, gentlemen, we need not confine ourselves to the precjpe circumstances whicn occurred at the Cottage. She says that she went into the Bowery,and from thence into Broadway, and inquired of a lad the di. rection to Beckman street, and was informed by him. The lad himself comes forward and substantiates this fact. So to that she was informed by others. The watchman tells the same fact; She stated that she inquired of him in Broadway, and he says that she did at the corner ofLispenard street. So too when she came to this Cottage, when she made an appeal to the watchman for protection ; that fact is proved by the watchman himself. Therefore in all these circumstances, she is corroborated by all these witnesses brought from abroad, totally unacquainted with her and unknown to her. So too when taken to the watrbhouse.berstateraents there are fully sustained by the evidence of Dr. Maoomb and the matron of the prison. She also stated with whom she had lived, Mrs. Mitchell, Mr. O'Kelly, and Mrs. Moore, ami an tnis was sti rut annated by thoie witnesses on the stand. In all theae statements then, she has spoken the truth, and from this the in- j Terence is thatishe has spoke the truth also with respect to the identity of the individual at the bar. She also states, gentlemen, that she was probably in that building about an hour. Vou observe that all the witnesses on the part of the defence, who were in the Cottage, including the very bar-keeper, state the fact that she could not have been more than three or lour minutes there. Now the lad Saddler says that when she asked of him the way toBeekmmu street, it was not eight o'clock. The watchman ou the corner of Lispeuurt street, stated that she asked the same question of him sometime between 7 and 8 o'clock. She herself says that when she got to the Cottage, it was about eight o'clock, and the watchman who found her after the outrage, says that it was about a quarter past nine o'clock when he saw her, and when she stated tha' she had just then came out of the Cottage. All this,of course, strongly sustains the truth of her statement respecting the time during which she was in the building. And this fact is of great importance in the examination of the character of the evidence for the defence. So wide a difference as exists between them, a few minutes, and an hour, or nearly an hour, in which these individuals were thus engaged in outraging the feelings and person of this individual, must necessarily call your attention to the credibility of the witnesses offering such discordant testimony. Then comes the ready and unhesitating recognition of the prisoner by the girl when at the watch house, and her steady persistence in it till brought on the stand. I have thus, gentlemen, directed your attention to the prominent facts on the side of the prosecution. But you do not require to be reminded that the case on the part of the defence has equal claims on your calm and dispassionate consideration; and I feel that I would insult you, were 1 to call on you to dis miss from your minds all prejudice, all excited feeling, and to judge and decide only according to the testimony. As citizens of a land where the sanctity and supremacy of equal justice are so fully revered and admitted, ana as respectable individuals, I think 1 know you too well, to be under the necessity of explaining the nature of your duties. No matter how excited counsel may be?no matter in what glowing terms they may describe the case, on the one aide or on the other?no matter haw ingeniously they may distort the testimony, yon are to take it and subject it to calm, unprejudiced and impartial exanination. It becomes us, therefore, to look on the other side of the picture. Let us see what there is to sustain this prisoner. If he be innocent, God grant that you may see his innoconnp and render unto him instice. What. then, is ad vanr.ed on the part of the defence in thi? case? Mr. Courtney, who U one of your city watchmen, aayi that after the girl made her complaint to him, he went into the Cottage with her, and that she was unable to recognize any one there as having committed the outrage on her person, although the prisoner at the bar was present and shook hands with the watchman, thus exciting the girl's attention to him. This is favorable to the prisoner, unless it be counterbalanced by the fact that the confusion in the girl's mind may, at that moment knve been so great as to interfere with her recollection. Then, again, while at the watch house She did not at first recognize Hatfield and Underhill, but did on the ensuing morning Thus the testimony of Ostrandcr respecting the absence of the prisoner in nis company during the perpetration of the outrage is before you. Now, gentlemen, there is one of two things, either thate ?oitueiiee art all perjured, or the prtiontr it an innocent man. It it utterly impottiblt to reconcile tbiiteitimony utith hit guilt. Evidence has been adduced to prove that the girl is unchaste, and such evidence, as it forms part of the ret geita, is perfectly admissible. A woman who is alprostitute. would not be very worthy of credit, in calling far an indictment against an individual for ravishing her, because the fact of ner being a prostitute evince* that she had no repugnance to that act which a virtuous female would regard as utterly de structive of her peace and character. You have heard the statements of counsel relative to the character and credibility of these witnesses, and I forbear to make nny nddi'ional comments. With this very succinct, and I fear superficial view of the testimony, I leave the case in your li mitls, srnilrmr.il. f ntishit.. M.innik I list on the |isrt of the defence, evidence of the good character ol the prisoner previous to his keeping thin house was ottered, and that since then the witnesses* know nothing against him except the keeping of that establishment. You will, of course, as in all esses, give the accuse 1 the benefit of whatever value ton attach to this psrt of the defence. Gentlemen, the great duty now aevoives upon you 10juage nerween tne people of the State of Now York, and the accused. Let me remind you that whilst on the one aide, you do not jrive way ? feeling, preju lice, excitement, or what the world mnv say, or what char cterthey may impute to thistransa"tion ; on the other hand, let no airU ly sympathy on behalf of the accnsed operate on your minds.

Proceeding* in the legislature?Cutting out Work for the Station?Office Set kern and their Prospect* The Legislature, it will be teen, have already cut out work enough to keep them busy during the greater part ol the session. Notices have been given of bills to amend the Filot Laws of the city of New York?to repeal the School Laws of last session? to require Justices or the Peace to give security? to repeal part of the Exemption Law, and to abolish the practice of voting by proxy in Banks and Insurance Companies. Mr Joints' bill to equalise the wards of the city of New York is likely to draw out a great deal of party feelings, as the whig* here charge that it is the result of a caucus between the locofoco members of the New York Corporation and the city delegation. If the bill becomes a law, the whigs may well despair of ever getting a majority in tne Common Council of the city. The sessions of either House as yet have been of short duration, about two hours per day. There has been no opportunity for display of oratory as yet, and it cannot, of course, be told who is the big gun of either party. There will be plenty of opportunity afforded the talkers next week. A great deal of effort is being made to have the Exemption Law, of last session repealed, or else materially modified. It will be an unpopular measuie, however, and I do not believe the attempt will succeed. The oP|K>sition to the law comes principally from the landlords and wealthy men. The rush for office has somewhat subsided. The office-seekers were so cavalierly treated by Gov. Bouck, that they find it poor business to bore htm. They are now content to wait patiently for his decision. This city and county furnishesa good share of these gentry. Among them, I notice Mr. Erastus Miller, a somewhat prominent politician on a small scale in this city. He would like very much to be Flour Inspector again. He formerly nejd the office. Mr. P. Byrnes would have no objection to be Inspector of Staves, but his chance is a desperate one.

Ex-Lieut. Gov. Bradish is still in town, and bows as politely and looks as smilingly as if lie had never run for Governor and been defeated. Mr. B. has many warm personal friends in the city, of both political parties, and his departure will be much regretted. The Senate were occupied during the greater part of to-day's sitting.m the discussion of the Governor's message. In the House to-day, an immense number of petitions were presented and referred. Various bills, petions, &c., were ordered to be taken from the files of the last House, and transferred to that of the pregent. Mr. Daly gave notice of his intention to introduce a bill relative to contracts made by, or in behalf of the Mayor, &c , of the city of New York. A number of notices were given of intention to introduce bills, mainly, however, of an unimportant character. Simon. Boston. (Correspondence of the Herald.] Boston, Jan. 6,1818. Oreat Excitement in the Massachusetts Legislature? New Speaker?Curious Incidents. U wish you a happy New Year. Now as you know how to appreciate that old fashioned salutation, any further comment is quite unnecessary. Our city is in a perfect fret and fever of anxiety about the first development of legislative wisdom, that shall transpire. The Legislature ig now in solemn session in tneir respective halls, sweating and puffing in the full tug of war. As yon will have seen ere this, the whigs have chosen their old clerk, Gushing; but the august body have not been able to elect a Speaker yet. Tom Kinnicutt, whig, and Col. Seth J. Thomas, dem. are the two candidates.? Tom is a right clever fellow, and looks, in all the outer man, like Mat Van Buren; that Ojierates unfavorably for Seth. The locos are dead for Seth, because he is the handsomest man there is in the whole congregation, and withal, is beyond doubt the best qualified to do the clean thing. Tom's eternal Kinderhook kind of a June morning smile, has a sort of mesmeric influence on the susceptible, and plays the mischief. Three days have spirited themselves into the past, and yet the good pilgrim State is dead in the eyes of the wind, unier a single close reefed jib. Neck and neck they go, nosing the purse; however,we are full of hope for the future. h, yes, that will open rich, as regards matters in these diggins. The public weal will stand a good chance for a squeezing, as the parties are so well balanced that a grand potential equilibrium will, undoubtedly, leave much undone that ought to be done, and prevent being done those things that no body want?to havo done. The Senate is organized complete. Phin. W. Leland, of Fall River, was chosen President, and Lewis Joslyn (late editor of the Bay State Democrat) Clerk. Phin. Iceland was formerly collector at Fall River and the region round about, and was removed by Capt. Tyler; by mistake, undoubtedly, as no man in the f ull flow of reason would have done that same thing in a cool, deliberate moment. Why, I should as soon have thought of the removal of Bob. However, the Capting is in a bad fix.?

Well, as the government has not been able to organize, these valiant soldiers have not been permitted to lay by their murderous arms "for the space of "three days and three nights!" But them's brave chaps; they knows where the glory lies. Right in the middle of all this trouble, the liberty men nave wiggled themselves, holding the casting vote, and though mostly whigs, they have unfortunately smelt out a slave holder by construction, in the person of Tom Kinnicult. Tom, it is said, represents slave property.in Mississippi, and then he is so fair-complexioned that, putting that and that together, they can't swallow as well as at first; but I expect all tnese crooked things will be straightened, smoothed down, glossed over, and slipped one side in about twenty minutes.

Another man, " who had nothing else to do," became quite busy in repeating the words. It was not long before confusion was boiling over, and an old cork, who was then just closing a per centum bargain, heard the alarm, and unwittingly bawled out "who's gone, the endorser 1" 7 he same wug, who was on the spot, of course, renlied, "oh yes, I saw him starting oft? that is, I thought he looked like it."

Though there has been such a lapse ef time since my last communication, it was not from neglect, but from lack oi news, that you did not hear from m?. The many questions of much interest to the East, and which have occupied so much of the time of the foreign diplomatists, are no nearer a set* dement than they were two months since. The Sublime Porle has concentrated a strong force on the eastern frontier, and has assumed so menacing an attitude that the Schah of Persia will willingly listen to terms. Their quarrel for the present, has 1 i I l xt. C * i assumed tne aspect 01 an armea truce, r*u 1 uriner aggressions hare occurred, and it is well that such is the case, when we consider the barbarous system of warfare they adopt?carrying off the population of entire villages, and selling them as slaves. The Persian women command a high price, as they are celebrated for their beauty and accomplishments. We may, therefore, judge with what savage ferocity a wild and undisciplined soldiery, such as the Turkish army consists of, must overrun an enemy's territory. The ministers of the allied powers are much occupied with the Syrian affairs. The inhabitants of the mountain still continue in a turbulent state, and many encounters have occurred between them and the Sultan's troops. The intended visit of the Pacha of Egypt is much talked of, although I cannot say with now much foundation of truth. Servia has given cause for Russian interference with the affairs of Turkey, and Mr- Boutenefl arrived here lately as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary, and will use his powerful influence to reconcile the Padishah with his Demi subjects. A splendid steam frigate was launched a few days since at the Navy Yard, and as it was the first one that has been built in the capital, the launch was attended with extraordinary ceremony. The Sultan, surrounded by a brilliant escort, was received at the landing place by Tahir Pacha, the grand admiral, and a crowd of other dignitaries A regiment of tha Imperial Guards lined the path from the Sultan's barge to the crimson pavillion, erected at a convenient distance from the ship. Carpets protected the Imperial feet from the plebeian dust, and a couple of officers walked slowly before him, swinging golden censors.#His Highness, supported on either side by a Pacha of high rank, moved with languid steps, as if unable or unwilhngi.to bear his own weight. The Imperial astrologers had predicted that a favorable conjunction of the planets would take place at 1J P. M.?prayers were said by the Muftis amidst a dead silence, and the blood of a lamb sprinkled over her bows, when at a given signal, the vast mass began to move, creaking, smoking, and groaning as she went, saluted by the martial strains of the Imperial band, and the loud huzzas of the multitude which covered all the neighboring roofs and vessels, or ma me goiaen nora 111 meir numoeriess cams. She glided gracefully into that noble basin, and immediately workmen were sent to complete her without delay. H. H. was so much gratified with the successful result of the launch and the majestic appearance of the ship, that he has given orders for the construction of three more of from 400 to 600 horse power. Mr. Reeves, the constructor, is an American,and has received much praise for the masterly execution of this his first work. She has been called the " Essere Jadid" (new sign of improvement in naval architecture). It may be proper to mention that our minister resident, the gallant Commodore Porter, was present, and had much attention paid to him by theCapitan Pacha, who placed a steamer at his disposal, and sent an officer to attend on him. Her dimensions are as follows:? Length between perpendiculars, 190 feet Breadth between paddle boxes, 35" Force of horse power, 300 Number of guns, 34 Weight of guns on lower deck 13 33 pounders Do do upper do 10 34 do Taixhan gun forward 1 84 do Do do aft 1 84 do Just before she was launched, the Sultan received the news of the death of his only son. This is the second (me he has lost, and it has caussd him much grief as it has again disappointed him in the hope of having an heir to his throne. He and his brother, a young man far superior to him in every respect, are the last of their race. The child just deceased was only three days old, and the ships of war in the Bosnhorus were dressed in flags and firing salutes for him, when the news of his death was received.? The Sultan secluded himself for the rest of the dav in a kiosh back of the navy yard. He seems, however, to be already reconciled to his loss, as he may be seen every Friday afternoon during the Ramazan. looking at a multitude of all nations and classes, in arubas, on horseback and an foot, riding and walking in the square before the Grand Vizier's )>alace. This is a new and favorite amusement of his during this month, which is one ol fasting and feasting. The ladies are seated in their gaudy arubas, drawn by milk white oxen, gaily decorated with mirrors and worsted taasels, and the men are either on horseback or on loot. The Sultan sits in a window smoking his narghile, and whenever he espies a lady loo much inclined to coquetry, or who as much as shown the tip end of her nose from beneath her yaahmack, he has it torn off on the spot, and every Greek or American Rayah, who presumes to allow his hair to be visible below the edge of his fez, is subjected to the summary application of a razor at the expense of the state. Thus does this sprig of royalty contrive to relieve the tedium of the hours he spends out of his harern. He is a poor enervated creature. worn nut hv Hissinntinn. in fact, has little more intellect than a child; and is daily losing even that small portion. When he came to the throne, his aunt presented him with thirty beautiful Georgians and Circassians, she had selected and educated expressly for him. We are daily expecting the arrival here of a steamer from Boston, to be employed in towing vessels through the Dardanelles. They are frequently detained seven or eight weeks at the lower castles, waiting for a favorable wind to stem the current, which sweeps with such velocity through the straits of Settos and Abydos. I have no doubt that it will prove a lucrative speculation, such as our enterprising countryman deserves. Two or three steamers have long Deen needed on the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles, and I am surprised they have been so long unsupplied with any. ^ P. S. I hasten to inform you that within the last week a son and daughter have been born unto the Sultan. Tremendous has been the canonading ever since. Bankrupt List. SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK.
