The remainder of thit article ia the tame as the present law. Article 3d relates to the sales of lands for taxes, and authorizes tho Comptroller to take order for advertising such lands. The remainder of the article is similar to the present law. In relation to the cstimntea of expenses for the present year, as stated in the report, Alderman Purdt asked how the expenses of the Alms House could be reduced to $100,000, when last vear they were $150,000. Alderman Lee said that if theoidinanre prepared by the Special Committee, cl which he was chairman, was adopted, that saving could bo made to the city. That the only manner ol making any saving, was to establish a work houac.>H>' believed that the Commissioners were as economical as they could be, and that every dollar was saved that could be. lie moved that the appropriation for the Alms House be estimated at $150,000, and if but $100,000 was wanted, the remainder ueed not be raited. Alderman Crolius calculated that the establishment of a work house would reduce the expenses ot the Alma Hou?e to $-100,000, and cited as an instance, that a few weeks since when a number of the paupers were set at work to open a trench to pass the Croton water into the Bellevue Hospital,several ol them ranaway.and he,therefore, believed that il a place was selected to keen those at v\ ork, who were able, the city would be relieved from the expense of keeping hundreds whom they were now compelled to suppoit. The motion of Aide-man Lee was lost, and the estimates were then adopted, aa follows :? Estimated Eitimatrd Account. Expenditure. Receipt!.

Superior Court. Before Judge Oakley. The Great Lispenarb Will Case. Feb. 13?Htlen Sophia Liipenard, Julia Liiptnard, Either Litptnard vs. Robtrt Stewart.?This present action is one of ejectment, brought to recover real estate bolonging to the late Alice Lispenard, deceased, which was devised by her to her brother-in-law Alexander Stewart, and by him devised to the defendant; and it involves the question of her testamentary capacity, or thu power to make a will by the said Alice, it Deing alleged by plaintiff, that she was not of a sound and disposing mind at the time the will was made. The estate involved in this present question is No 40 Watt street. The amount of property depending upon the decision of this suit is said to be Irom two to six millions of dollars. Benjamin F. Butler, Esq., counsel for plaintiff, made an opening speech of several hours in length, but one of great ability, clearness, power, aud sound reasoning. The first part olbis speech was occupied in some genealogical statements, which we condense, and give briefly as follows;? Genealogical Memoranda. ? A.D. ISCfl, Anthony Lispenard, Sen-, and his wife, both died. He left a will dated Dec. 24, IS02, and left his surviving two sons, 1 eonaid on,I Ai.ll.nnv turn .Imierhtera Alien un.l Son, h t... ilV. ..f Alexander L. Stewart) and one grand-dauglitar, Sarah B. Bache (only and orphan child of hii deceased daughter, Helen Baclie, and subsequently the witeof Ilobert Montgomery Livingston.) Jan. 1808, Anthony Lispenard Jr., died unmarried, intestate, ami without issue, leaving as his heirs at law, his brother Leonard Lispenard, his sisters Alice Lispenard, and Sarah Stewart, and his niece Sarah B. Bache. 1817. Leonard Lispeuard died, leaving two sons and two daughters; his wile died some years previously. Oct. 1831.?Sarah (wife of Alexander L. Stewart) died, leaving six children. Jan. 1838. Alice died, aged AS years; her next of kin are the following, viz:? 1. Helen L-, wife of J. Watson Webb. 2. Mary J., wife of Stephen H. Webb. 3. Sarah A., wife of Charles S. Stewart. 4. Lispenard Stewart. ft. Eliza B. Stewart. 6. Matilda W , now wife of Herman C. Lo Hoy. [The above six individuals are children of Sarah and Alex. L. Stewart ] 7. Sarah B. Livingston, daughter of Helen and Paul Bache, and widow ot Robert Montgomery Livingston. H. Helen B , wife of Aug. A. Nicholson. P. Sarah Lispenard. [Children of Leonard Lispenard.] N.B. Anthony Lispenard, son of Leonard Lispenard, died without issue. Tueophilact B. Lispenard died leavinir children, who are orphans and niecet of Major Nicholson. They are the plainlifis in this present cause, and resided in Canada. From Mr. Butler's remarks, we also gather as follows : Anthony Lii|?enard died in 1808. Made his willjin 1802, and a codicil to it in 180ft. By his will, he devised $MX) per annum to his daughter Alice, which was to he paid out of his whole estate. The whole ol bis estates were devised (under the above condition) to bis two sons, Anthony and Leonard, and to his daughter Sarah, and his grand-dsughter Sarah B. Bache. The reason why Mr. Lispenard made a dis inction in the esse of his daughter Alice, is staled in the following clause of his will " As it hath pleased Almighty God that my daughter Alice, should have such imbecility of mind as to render her i icapabla of managing or taking care of property, my will I is," Ac. Alice was 2A y ears old when her lather died. I i iip rxfcutori 01 inn will wen1 nis wile, (who died ] sameyear) and hissons Leonard, Thomas, and Anthony Thecodicit subsequently added to these executors, hn laughter Sarah, wile of Alexander L. Stewart, aa executrix. The lour children each took one-quarter ol the eatate. Anthony, Jr. died in 1807 or '8. This one-quarter went to his two aiaters, Mrs. Sarah Stewart and Aliae, and his niece Sarah B Cache, and to his brother Leonard, lour in all, each of them being entitled to one sixteenth of the w hole estate. [Thomas died before the father | Alice died in Feb 1836, and as the plaintitf- allege, intestate, for want of capacity to make a will. The heirs at law are reckoned in three branches 1. The children of her *i?tor Sarah Stewart. J. Mrs. Surah Bache Livingston. 3. The discordant* of her brother, Leonard Lispenard, who died In 18l7,leitving two sons,Anthony and Theophy lact, and two daughters, Helen B. and Sarah. The children of Theopbylact arethe plaintiff- in this present suit. Their claim amounts to one sixteenth of the whole Lispenard estate. Robert Stewart claims title as executor and devisee of his brother Aletander L Stuart. It is Haimi-d by the plaintiiU in this suit ? 1. That Alice Lispenard, the testatrix, di dnot possess a sound and disposing mind to moke the will in question, but was imbecile. 9. That even if she were not thus of un3ound and imbe- i cilc mind, and intestable, yet that she was held phi sic ally and mentally in a state of pupilage, of coercion, of duress, , of constiaint, and und r fear and custody of her brother in-law, (and niece,) Alexander I,. Stewart. That she mado the wilt, exclusively forthoir bent fit, sod not ol hero-vn free will, but by their instigation and procure ' ment. Alexander L Stewart was alive at the time ot her 1 death (January 9, 1838.) and was her sole executor. The ' whole case has been fully litigated before the Surrogate? | some thirty witnesses examined on one side, and foity er r fifty on tho other. The Surrogate dicided against the will t Robert Stewart succeeded to Alexander L Stewart's e? ^ tate. The Chancellor n(firmed the Surrogate's opinion.? v Both those decisions were reversed by the Supreme Court, in Dec 1841, by a vote of 19 to 8 on one point, and 11 to 8 . on another. Mr. Butler claimed that the case was argued J before that court at theclose of a long session, and that it " court. That deciaion, however, nly aettled thequoation w af the will, an far aa Alice'a peraonal and Iraa. hold pro- h perty worn concerned The qneation a? to the real eatate j| iiatillopen. ?

It will now take two years to collect a debt by regular course of law.

Since the general thaw, the roads have been very bad, almost impassable,and the mails in consequence tailed forseveral days My better half became auite interested in your welfare, und longed for the hour when the mail usually arrives, to learn what courae tie- Grand Jury had taken (or your publishing the schedule ol Anthony L)ey in bankruptcy Alter many disappointments, t P?pet mail reached our pluce, bringing to hind several numbers of your interesting and entertaining papers. When I had finished reading to her the ' extraordinary document," as you term it, she observed that "ifyou were fined she would forward to you a email turn to help hquidate the fine." I looked at her, and ere I had tune to give " a thought tongue," anticipating that thought, she emd, "she could reserve enough from her pin money to make up a small sum." And as she looked upon it not as a gift, but a loan to be repaid by you in giving to your readers its consequences, and instilling into our offspring's mind, as he grows to manhood, the necessity of adhering rigidly to die instructions you have given to your readers, drawn torlh by the development of the Bankrupt Law, I banished from my rnnd ihe thought, and fully agreed with her.
