In nnnnkli.k In the rhueneat Btvle. and In the VTOCk ly quarto form of newtpapert, a divenided ond valuable * 1 action from tho RELIGIOUS LITERATURE of Chris tianity, producad by the man of gealua belonging to every tact dariag tha laat two handrad years. Tho roaton fcr attempting tuch a project U plain. Materialiam, infidelity and immorality, of all klndi, hare of lato been industriously circulated throughout the country under tuch imposing namat, and to to great an extent, that eomething mutt be done to revive the ancient api rit of Religion and Moral*. Lecturera of all kinds?sophiata on every aubject?the worat and wickedett literature of France and England, re-prodaced in the cheapeet forma, have demoralised the age?and upeet all the eatabliabed land mark* oi morality and religion throughout the lend. It i* therefore nectetary that eomething ahonld be done Bnt who ia to do it t If none other will, I ahall. I propose to republish in the cheapeet form, in quick aucceaaJon, a selection from the works of the best and purest RELIQIOUS AU THOR8, be they Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Catholic, Methodist, Baptiat, or any other denomination. These aeleeimna will haI h* An rftliffifllll flOlirOTArfT?bllt ItlCk II trot on practical piety?on good works?and on the ga neral principles of Christianity, without the had ipiritof eotarianiam. To carry oat thU project well, 1 poatcaa a large printing establishment, and the Herald, a daily newspaper, of tAirfy thousand cirtulation, now eonsidered the principal advertising organ in the country, capable of giving hroughout the Union intelligence of those works as they appear. This Printing Establishment cosnprises 10 presses, M printers, 10,000 ponnda of type, and a consumption of about 000 reams of paper, ef all kinds, per week. We have every means in our power to carry this project Into operation?and wa believe that the American publio is ready to aid and assist any man, who will threw himself into the breach, and endeavor to revive the ancient piety, virtue, and principles of our forefathers, in opposition to modern scepticism and immorality, which era stealing stealthily over the present generatien, under the matks of geology, mesmerism, fourierism, finance, neurology, transcendentalism, human perfectability, and the whole train of modern philosophy and light literature.

RK E INING, FEBRUARY 3, 18 Trial of Commudn McKtmlti Second Day, Thursday, Feb 2. All the members having arrived, the Court Martial appointed to try Captain McKenzie was formally organized this morning at 11 o'clock. Very few civilians were present. The precept authorising the organization of the Court was read by the Judge Advocate. It was addressed to Captain John Dowaes, appointing him President of the Court, and directing him to try Alexander Slidell McKenzie and such other individuals as may be legally brought before the Court. The Judge Advocate then asked Commander McKenzie if he was ready for trial, and it he had any objections to any of the members of the Court. Capt. McKenzie replied that he was ready, and that he had no objections against any of the members. The members of the Court were then nrern by I the Judge Advocate, and the latter by the President, according to the usaal form. The charges were then read by the Judge Advocate. They are as follows CHARGE I. Mubdeh on Board a United Statu Vessel on the High Skai. Specification lit. tn thit, that the laid Commander Alexander Sliftell McKenzie, of the Navy, commanding the U.

Approved April 13, 1800. (Signed) A. P. UPSHUR, Secretary ol the Navy. Navy Department, Jan 23,1S43. I admit that Acting Midshipman Philip Spencer, Boatswain's Mate Samuel Cromwell, and Seaman Eliaha Small were put to death by ray order, as Commander of the United States brig Somers, at the time and place men. liont-d in the charges ; but as under existing circumstance, this act was demanded hy duty and justified by neoeasity, i plead Not Guilty, to all the charges. AlEX. SLIDELL McKENZlE, Commander U. S. N. Commander McKxnzik then pleaded not guilty, and asked permission to have the assistance of John Duer and Geo. Griffin, Ewis., as counsel. This request was granted. The Judge Advocate then stated, that in relation to charge fourth, "conduct unbecoming an officer," he should prepare a paper which he would probably submit to the court to-morrow, showing the reason why he would not offer any evidence respecting it until he should get the opinion of the Attorney General. The Judge Advocate next ^read a paper, in which he expressed his opinion respecting his position. He did not regard himself as occupying the position of a public prosecutor before a civil tribunal. President?What is your object 1 Your duties owm nlourltr /lufinpri Kir low Judos Advocati?If Commodore Downes will hear the paper read,he will perceive that very object in to avoid objections which have frequently been urged. Mr. Norristhen went on as follows:? The Junnr Apto??ti, before the examination of testimony begins, dasiresto state to the Court, that he does not regard himself as occupying the position of a prosecuting U? otticer in the civil tribunals. His duty he be. Iieves akiu to that which was devolved on the English Judges at that time when traversers were put on trial without the privilege of counsel. A prosecuting otticer in the American Court, where the benefit of assistance is always allowed the defendant, usually contents himself with presenting a prima facie cose, and if compelled to resort to witnesses believed to have a favorable feeling toward the defendant, studiously uses no more than ia absolutely indiapeosihle; because otherwise he would be prevented from sifting their testimony by cross examination, or attacking it by way of positive impeachment ot character, should they bear witness contrary to that he believes the rruth, the principle being that no one shall thus discredit hia own witnesi. But 1 must not be made to take a position at all disabling me from extracting the truth of the transaction I could by a high witness prove the hanging ef Midshipman Spencer, seamen Cromwell and Smallhy the order of Commander McKenxie, and close the case , the rule of law being, that alter the death is shown to have occurred, actnaliy or constructively by the defendant, it it presumed to be made, and it is his duty to prove a minor degree of criminality or hia entire justiflcation or exeuaahiiity in effecting it. Thia will be the general course in civil jndicstures, in order to retain the rights of cross examination and impeachment. The duty of a Judge Advocate it,'as I have stated, supposed to be that of the English Judge in cases without the privilege of counsel, hut the Judge's rights were, to ask any question that would he legal from either sl.Ie. 1 shall not expect, therefore to he restricted liv the teehnieel rule* In Ihau ?... ticaian, and be treated and restrained an an ordinary pro editor. 1 wtah to elicit the whole truth, whether favorable or edver-e to the defendant, and if I do not extract what legally ought to verve him equally with hii own counsel, it will ho only from inferior capacity, knowledge, and that sagacity which a partisan feelingdoea only give. But I moat be apprised in advance by the defendant and hi> counsel of their intended course. ' Do they doaign not to contract my privilege to ask any questions that would be legal Irom either side, oris it meant after the confusion of slovenly practice before Courts Martial, to insist upon my dutv as the English Judge, for the benefit of the defendant? but, a* the American prosecutor, for the disadvantage of the government. I therefore, most respectfully desire of the defendant and his counsel, to signi'y what position they would require the Judge Advocate to occupy. II lam not to have, without exception, thx liberty of an eiamination in the nature of a croes exnmii. tion of my own witnesses, in such cases as my judgment would imply it aa neceesati for the attainment of trut' . let the defendant say so, and I shall conduct their cause the manner of ? law officer in ordinary caaes before n civil tribunal. I ahall call only the witnesses who wiU make the case against the defendant. This is tli uight by the government to be a caae of great Impor lance, and it is not unlikely that an asaociate of maaterly ability, and whose capacity has b?an ennobled by age to command the respect of the whola country, may ha sent now as a eoad|utor. In consultation thereof of pnblic opinion, I shall not proceed in the trial till I am advised whether such is the design ol the government A delay [era: 43. very dtairable and expedient under any oourt, u I peroeive an important point at the outlet of thi? cauae, 1 have not had an opportunity, irom the recency o[ any appointment, and th? diHirnlty of commanding the uto ol hooka when away from onea own office, of thoroughly examining. Mr. Dtjkr said that he quite agreed with the Judge Advocate that his duties were of a judicial character, and that he did not stand in the character of a public prosecutor. Of coarse he was not to be confined by any technical rules in the examination of witnesses. The Judo* Advocate then remarked, that as he had foreseen a point wliich would in 'he outset of the case excite some discussion, and which he had not had sufficient time and facilities of access to hooka to examine, und that as the government regarded the present a very importent case,and would probably associate with him a law officer of great experience und distinguished character, he would not go on this day, but defer all further procedure until to-morrow. By that time he would have heard froin the Department,and would be fully prepared. The Court was then ordered to be cleared for private deliberation. After three quarters of on hour had elapsed, the Court was re-opened. The Juno* Advocate then read the official letter from the Navy Department, appointing him Judge Advocate. The Court then adjourned till to morrow, at 10 o'clock, A. M. Albany. [Correipoudeuc* of the Herald.] Albany, Feb. 1, 1843. Retrenchment?High Accusations against the]Governor?State Printing Excitement?Quarrel between the Hunkers and Subterraneans?Appointment), &c $c. My Dear Sir: ? Legislation begins now to assume a business-like appearance. The days of retrenchment and economy appear, ut last, to be approaching in earnest. The Hon. Mr. Ely, ol the Senate, chairman of the committee upon that all-engrossing subject, has rennrf(*fl hillu in that Iwwlv r*?riur?i air fh#? aalurioa *?f tKa principal officers of Government from ten to fifteen per cent When Flags seated himself in the Comptroller's chair last winter, he cut down everything under his control?his own clerks, and also every man on the canals, about twenty per cent. Even the clerks in the Bank Department were visited with his economical displeasure, to the tune of two hundred and fifty dollars. And new, Mr Ely, in his bill, reaches the high officers, who thought the embarrassment of the State demanded retrenchment only among the deputies and subordinate officers. The Hon. Mr. Dickinson,of the Senate,is engnged in bringing charges against the public transactions of Gov. Bouck, when canal commissioner. The Senatorialleges that he (Col. B.) has squandered hundredsot thousands of dollars in letting contracts for excavaiions, locks, See., on the enlargement of the Erie Canal. This assertion, the honorable Senator pledges himself to prove, if the Senate | will allow him to send for persons and papers Senator Dickinson is undoubtedly an honorable man, and will endeavor to substantiate his assertion. But it is somewhat remarkable that this serious charge should be made at tins late day 1 Col B has been out of office four or five years, and during that time been twice a candidate Tor the highest office in the gift of the people ol this State. Would it not have been noticed, nay more, would it not have been justifiable in his political opponents, to have laid these facts before the people during the canvass 1 We all know that candidates for office have their characters, both public and private, searchingly scanned during a political contest, especially where it rages with the ferocity of New York politics. I urn inclined to the opinion that if Col. Bouck have practiced the partiality now alleged against him, the vigilant eye of Thurlow Weed would have discovered it, long ere this. The great excitement that existed here a week uku, in rcimu'ii 10 ui'- oimic i inner, nan neany sudnided Croswell and VanDyck have made an amicable diasolution, Van taking two thousand dollars in cash. This is considered by those who appear familiar with the circumstancs, as being a good bargain, for it is rumored that he never paid h dollar in tho concern, but drew out five hundred a year. After my return from Saratoga yesterday, I was informed that unactuai declaration of war had taken place between the old Hunkers (Cromwell & Co.). and the young democracy (John Van Bureu Sc Co.), and that an Irishman had been imported from some of the western counties to draw the weapons in support of the ultra section. You may expect some sport during this engagement?all growing out of the wonderful difficulty in distributing the spoils. To-morrow we expect many of the New York appointments will be disposed of. Of this I am heartily thankful; for it will relieve my own mind from the great anxiety which I have felt for three or four weeks in relation to my own application, as well as relievo my pockets from the heavy expenses of remaining at Landon's. Although several a|>pointmenls will be confirmed to-morrow, yet I do not believe that any individual mat this moment aware of his fate. The Governor possesses the most singular faculty of managing applicants lor office, that ever was known. They are all treated with the greatest politeness, but not a word ot committalism ever passes his lips. An exciting debate has just sprung up inthelfouse, Mr. W. Hall laid on the table, yesterday, a joint resolution directing the Attorney General to institute and conduct in the name and on the complaint ot any citizen agrieved by the Virginia inspection laws, one or more suits, to test the constitutionality of those laws. Governor Bouck has ad vised the State of New York to take the "back track" in re lation to trying by jury, all runaway negroes w ho may be caught in this State, thereby repealing this law. which was passed by the Whigs to gratify the abolitionists. Mr. Hall's speech to-day, waa of the most rabid abolition nature?no rank and bitter against the south, that it would be well for the opposite party to circulate it throughout the whole southern country, in order to let the people there know what Mr. Clay's friends in New York are doing towardsfcontnbutinK to his defeat in 1844. t^The question, what is to be done with the Erie Itailraid,is undoubtedly the greatest business ot the session. There are hardly two men who harmonise upon the subject. Some are importuning the members to assume the entire control of it and make it a Slate work?others are in favor of re-nrganising its directorship, take the Slate in as a three million partner, and then issue stock to make up all the deficiency necessary to its completion. Another suggestion has been made, and that is, for the State to make a donation of the three millions loaned to the company, and have nothing more to do with the rotten concern. I am not sure but this would be the most judicious course to pursue. It is such a magnificent folly?such a splendid humbug?that the tax jiayers of the whole State ought to pay the Legislature ta get rid of it as soon as posuble. v?.,_ t -j ? uuir, ivv. j us omith Albany. [Correspondence of the Herald. 1 Ai.bany, Wednesday, Feb. 1, 1843. The Weather and the River?Abofitionitm?State Printing ?Office Seektrt ami Religion. We had a rain storm yesterday, which completely swept away all the last fall of snow. The navigation is again uninterrupted. To-day the weather instill mild, with rain and snow. The legislature are still occupied in interminable discussions on that never failing topic, the Governnor's message; and the worst of it is, therr still re mains a dozen or more speeches on the subject yet to be made. The Senate have not yet got through with Mr. Dickinson's charges of fraud and corruption against Wm C. Bouck, while Canal Commissioner. He is ol opinion that a man cannot pay 8100 a rod for stone wall, without committing a fraud Mr. D. pushes this enquiry with a pertinacity worthy of a better cause. In the House.yegterday, Mr Willlis Hall made a very able and eloquent speech on his resolution directing the Attorney General of the State to commence suits,in order to test the con -?tutionniiiy 01 tne Virginia inspection law. Mr. Hall has certainly improved vastly since he was a member of the Mouse before, and his speech was listened to with marked attentior. Mr. Hathaway, of Chemung, intimated his intention to reply at an early day. The Atlas, which is now under the editorial charge of H. O'Reilley, still continues its attacks on the new SMate Printer. Mr. Croswell has not as yet replied either to the Atlas, or to the statement of Mr Van Dyck, but it is understood that he will do so in a day or so. The partnership in the Argus ha< been dissolved and it is now under the joint control ol Mesa's Edwin and Sherman Croswell.

Although much has come to light through your valuable miscellany, in regard to this notorious individual, not a tithe oi his attempts on respectublo parties are known to the public generally?lor people are more or lees averse to finding their names associated with such a character in the columns of a daily journal. Peter's a clever fellow?a good looking one too, as your admirable lithograph delineates. In yaur second series, you might give him the advantage of the chaptau dt brat, small sword and tri-coiored cockade, when enacting the part of attachi to his Royal Highness, the Prince tie Joinville Peter's great lorte lies in the commercial routine, as there are very many who must recollect him, when established in sundry offices round about the Exchange?in all the plenitude ot business and bustle, clearing out (and I presume literally so) a vessel for the West Indies. " Peter Reierten h Co. request Messrs. Holgates to inform them their lowest price lor MO botes otsosp, suitable lor the Cuba market, on time, and if their terms suit, the necessary references will bo given." This polite note, and businessproe|ieet, soon brings Messrs Holgates, hat in hand, to wait upon Messrs. Peter Reiersen & Co. Qui of the many, some few victims were drawn into the snare. The captain who sailed in their employ, was a good looking, honeat kind of a sort of nneasturn chap, and talked well about the prices of coffee, beeswax, cocoa and raw hides. But all this was no doubt done legally?one of the company, it ia said, wbb a man skilled in law?his advise was always taken in intricate transactions? there is no robbery, you are legally swindled?it is nothing more than a ' commercial responsibility"? the parties become unfortunate?the excellent bankrupt law gives the finishing stroke?you lose your money lawfully, and ought to be satisfied?you gain experience, if nothing else. Job Smith Sc Co. More Dry Dock* aad Dry Facta. First?The friends of the Sectional Dock say that the Secretary of the Navy ia in favor of having such a dock built for Government. As his opinion is important, we quote as follows?"Conscious of my inability to decide the question, I have selected the most eminent talent in the country," and goea on to name the Committee, who, after examination, reported in favor of Cilbert's balance Dock, and against the Sectional. Second?They say Foster Rhodea, Esq. is a Naval Architect, and his certificate is decisive, and the Devil on two Sticks publishes a letter of Mr. Rhodes; but snce that letter was written, Mr. Rhodes hs? recanted, and says "The Balance Dock is the one on which a vessel can be rebuilt. I can construct on the balance Dock, and do away with the prejudices of its opponents. I have never decided against the Balance Dock." This in an important fact. Samuel Humphrey, E?q , successor of Henry Eckford, ia the chief Naval Architect, but Mr. Gilbert's opponents Bay, "He is aloof from all practical connection with the improvements of the age." i Tnir<'?They say the Sectional Dock, 2W) feet long, 140 broad, and 15 deep, would be but 800 tons short of 5200 ions Gilbert's Doc k does not require 15 feet of depth; eight feet is sufficient. Fourth?Tliey claim that ship owners and shipwrights are auihonty, and iliat they are in favor of a Sectional Doc*. Now the lact is that most of the same shipowners and shipwrights, whom they claim as in favor of the Sectional Dock, and others to a greater number, have eigued and petitioned for Gilbert's Balance Dock, and their signatures ware obtained subsequently. The Case of Parka. To the Editor or the Herald? Sir i have taken the "Herald" through " good report and ovil report," ever tines the tscoad number of its eiittence In thu city, snd occationsllv hare contributed articlee to it* rolumni, and I hare ueually regarded it as l?culiarly the vehicle of accurate imonnation of matt art ? ? ' * 1 a ?- A? ? r D..k. U Hna inin^i in goufru; uui in me cue ui i ?? * , uuum ?v thin morning, your informant haa certainly discovered a mare's nest. The Police magistrate! had fully examined into the particulars of the tw o charges brought against Parka, ana decided upon holding him to hail in the sum of $600 in each case, for want oi which ha was committed. All that their Honors Tallmadge or Lynch had to do with the case, waa to perform the mere ministerial act of taking bail for the amount already decided to be proper by 'he Poliee magistrate,and fur refusing to do which, when satisfactory bail waa offered, they would have been liahla to an action for falae imprisonment at the suit of Parka. All'.he discretion they could possibly exercise in the case was to decide, not whether the case was proper to be bailed at all or not, for that had been already decided in the affirmative by a competent judicial officer, to wit, thecommilting magistrate; but merely to decide whether the parties oltored were proper hail. Thoae gautlemen justified fully, and their affidavit! are upon record, and if falae, they are liable to a prosecution for perjury; but they now request me to reiterate that they are hereupon the spot, and that they are able and willing to abide by the responsibility they have undertaken; ami they further reqnec me to state, '.hat they will be prompt in noticing any libel that might be published against them, in reference to the course they have thought proper to adopt. This explanation show* that there waa neither any trick practised by the lawyer, nor any imposition practised upon either of the above named upright judges. It shows also, that the reference to a habeas corpus in theoaee.wae totally out of place, and perfectly inapplicable, for the eflwet of a habeas corpus would have been to enquire into the whole merits of the case, a proceeding wholly auperogatory, because it had been already enquired into, and adjudicated upon, and the giving bail waa merely carrying out that adjudication. With reference to Mrs. Case, the s ime remark t apply precisely, though with more force, for it happens that ahe is not the real Simon Pure at all, but a worthy and respectabln widow lady of fbty years of age; who, it I am aorrnetiy informed, waa never within the wallsoiTa prison before in her life ; but unfortunately happens to bear the same name with another person, whose reputation is somewhat notorious. The insertion of the above explanation will much obliga youf old subsbribcr. THE LAWYER ALLUDED TO. Hotels.?The rrcuscitation of the City Hotel in New York, by it* again reposing in the arm* of Messrs. Jennings & Willard, haa led to a discussion in the newspapers of the day, rs to the merits of the other hotels in your great city. Ths Courier and inquirer, with its accustomed fairness in noticing the City Hotel, referred to many of your prominent and well managed hotels, but said not a word about the well kept, and justly celebrated hotel of the Messrs. Howards. The writer of this is not interested a farthing in the success of any hotel in New York, but he deems it a duty, which he oweato the travelling public to say, that although the Courier and Enquiivr, may not rank Howanrs Hotel among the first in your city, one of their customers, who \ isitsthe house as often aa once a month during the year, knows it to be equal, if not superior to any other hotel in New York, or in the Union. The Messrs. Howards are always attentive to their guests, and all under them know what to do, and how to do it. If a young man gives them a call, John Dumphv, who is known as far as the house is known, will devote his time to him, and use every endeavor to make his stay agreeable. John is one of the boys. At Howanrs, you will find always two copies of your sprightlv Herald on file, which is more by two than ysu can find in some of the hotels, which are cracked up by the Courier and Knq urer.
