Thk Administration or Justici?and the Retorts op thk Newspaper Press.?A very interesting scene look place yesterday in the Court of Ses- ' sions, in relation to the teportsof the proceedings of that Court, which appear in the daily newspaper J press. It will be found in another column. Here is another instance of the accuracy and care with which all the reports of the Herald are 1 prepared, aa contrasted with the error, carelessness, 1 inefficiency, and blunders of our cotemporaries ' The superior reputation of the Herald, in this respect, has aiisen from the comprehensive and liberal system we were the first to introduce into the newspaper press of this country. In this system we have brought ?nto action the principle of a " division of labor" on a large and expensive scale. The errors, blunders, and meagrenfss of other journals arise from penury and incapacity. One reporter is en gaged to furnish, lor a lew dollars a week, a report for several journals, and to attend to several courts or public meetings. It is utleily impossible that any public proceedings can be thoroughly reported by such a lobbing, loafer svstem?hence the hieh reou tationofthe Herald, which employs one, two, and sometimes three or lour competent reporters to attend any important trial,or public assembly of much interest. Yet, in s[ ite of the vast industry, superiority, and care with which every department of this journal is prepared and written, so great is the jealousy and hate of our rivals,that all sorts of intrigues have been ' for years set on foot to embarrass and injure our j business, our motives, and our character In the nntnrintta Ha0?prtu pocp u/pro uninatlu finp^ $500, merely lor publishing a "John" for a "James" ^ ?an error which was corrected next day. In the s equally famous Noah libel, which was a merejeu F d'etprit, we were indicted at trie instigation ot that r miserable political tool, and fined $350, besides the 1 infliction of a homily from Judge Kent, which had 1 nothing to do with our case, but much to do with the man in the moon. In the Dey libel also, we were ' indicted lor publishing a correct abstract of a bank- ( rupt case, and for calling the bankrupt himself a " man of respectability and a christian," and still, strange to relate, six of the jurors were for convict- . uig us, because, as their leader said, " the Herald it . rtfainti the credit tyttem." And yet, when we t ate assailed with all sorts of falsehood? j and the innocent branches of our family, ? down to the very babe, are libelled in such a gross j and atrocious manner that the whole community ( stand aghast in horror and astonishment, courts, ) jurors, judges, and the whole honorable and digni- , fled administration of justice, stand idly by and look ( on with perfect repose of face and conscience. Is this protecting and preserving the liberty and dig- | nity of the press! Neither in London, nor in Paris, the capitals of , two monarchies, where the press ought to be less , free than in a republic, would such malicious t things be tolerated by an honest public opinion, j We shall give startling instances of this by and by. , Sect-convicted misrepresentation.?The "Tri- <j bune" sometimes perpetrates very sublime pieces of * impudence. But yesterday it " oit-Heroded He- | rod " Witness the following paragraph :? "The Herald habitually distort* the testimony taken be- , fare theCourt Martial, in order evilertly to prejudice the ] case of Capt. McKenxie. That which appears to bear . against him is set forth in italics and small capitals, inci. dental rema-k?, justifying or discrediting witnesses arc thrown in, and a false coloring is given to the whole in- ' v-stigation, by the partial manner in which it is reported. 1 This is basely unjust, and should be stopped. " 1 The allegatio 1 that we have " distorted the testi- 1 mony" in the case is " basely" false. We have ta- f ken especial pains to have the proceedings of the I Court Martial fully, accurately an mpartially re- a liorted, and all who have attendeded as auditors, ? the Judge Advocate and the members of the Court, tj must admit that we have succeeded in doing so.? a In no instance has our reporter been guilty of mis- * representation. He has given with perfect and lite- t) ral accuracy the questions put to the witnessas, and tl tnetr answers. n The consistency,and rectitude,and impartiality of [j the " Tribune," will, however, be best elucidated ? by a specimen of the style in which it* reports of the * proceedings ol the Court Martial are given. Let us r then take the following extract from the report of 1 the testimony of the boy English, as given in the " Tribune" of yesterday :? 'Hit testimony now wsj the 'ssme* at he gaveon that oc- 1 ration (the Court of Enquiry) but he could not on this oc ( cation recogt.ue either of the paperi at being the one lie . had neon in Sir Spencer'a hand,or at the Court of Enquiry in inn cinm 01 me .monn uaronna. ?ne paper, ho fail, ? on those occaaiona, wan much yellower than either of j thoee ahovn him now.

Cask.?The interest excited by the proceedings in this case is extraordina- tl ry The Court room was crowded to excess during r< the whole of yesterday Mr O'Connor's speech ^ was a very powerful effort. His narrative of the career of the "jocose gentleman," as Mr. Alexander k i. ciewari was siyiea Dy tne counsel lor the de- " fence, was peculiarly happy. Humor, sarcaam and '' paths, were mingled in it with the greatest effect, r and it was with difficulty that the feelings of the au- j (Jitory were restrained within the bouoda of that decorum which the dignity of the Court demanded Mr O'Conner will finish his speech this forenoon, 1 and we will iwae a full report of it in to-morrow's paper It will contain a great amount of curious | and interesting matter. 1 Tint Bowiav Kw School-?A correspondent , takes us to task for neglecting to mention the name | of Ihsbrow, in connection with the Bowery Riding , ^onooi >o error wnatrver Mr Davis is the per eon who manner* the establishmeDt, and manages it with skill and tact Mr Diebrow may be inte- ' rested in the profits, but we believe he is better ac- ' tpimntrd with the make, worth, and manufacture ' of coffins, than with the witchery of horsemanship, ^ or the qualities of horse Heth lioth are highly res|>ectable in their several lines Davis among f h.irersj ind Ihslirow among coffins j ' Thk Somkrs Cask?Bagging o\ Principle -Honor or the American Flag?This case ? beginning to acquire a fresh interest? >artly from the fresh (acts coming out?and partly rom the opinions of the English press, which are now about coming back, to inn with public opinion here. Yesterday, in the report of the Court Martial, it will be seen that Commander McKenzie ustifies his tying up the apprentices in stout canvas bags, on the ground of keeping them warm and comfortable. This is pretty nearly correct in all iuch cases. When a sportsman goes out to shoot nutinous canvas back ducks on the rotomac. he generally bags his game for a like reason. So also >n Long Island, when men go out shooting insuboriinate imrtridges, or unruly snipe, stout bags are ised for a similar purpose. All perfectly right, and irecedent for it too. Among other new points, is >ne recently set up by Commander McKenzie, in eference to the honor of the American flag, i. word on this point. The Journal of Commerce and the American luote young Perry's answer to the question respecting the ability of the Commander of the Somers to take her into St. Thomas, with approbation, as if it furnished an excuse for his conduct. Perry says that the honor of the flag forbade seeking protection elsewhere than from the ship herself. Now, in the first place, the question has nothing to do with protection. If the vessel could have been brought into St. Thomas or any other island, the prisoners could have been landed there, or placed in the charge of the U. S. Consul, or sent home in a merchant vessel. The same disposition could have been made of the suspected part of the crew, and the prisoners retained in irons, if the " honor of the flag" required it. But, is a regard to the " honor of the flag" to justify the hanging of three human beings, unarmed, in irons, without trial and without the authority of law 1 Tribunals are created in this country, to take care of the honor of the country and of the flag, and at the same time to preserve tke rights of its citizens. No authority has been given to any Commander to hang men at his will and pleasure, lor the "honor of the flag" of his country. The idea is a most pernicious one. It is the essence of Lynch law?the very personification of " insolence in of i :i i? j ... utc ?auu u uuc nuiic|iuuiaicu,i;uiiuciiuicufaiiu uiterly extirpated by the Court Martial now in session, the glorious discipline of the Navy will be condemned by the American people as an intolerable tyran ny. We suppose, after this mode of justification, that Captain McKenzie will say that the honor of the American flag also required that several young American citizens should be tied up in sacks by the neck, in order to prevent a mutiny. We wonder that an additional order was not given to sing a psalm to heaven, and give cheers to the banner of the Cross, for the protection of the atmed Commander and officers, from those terrible boys tied up in the awful sacks. Verily, verily, the tragedy of theSomers discloses a tissue of barbarity, injustice, uomiciae, enrontery, insolence, cowardice, farce ind folly, that seems unparalleled in the history of luman nature. British Consul in New York.?We learn that inthony Barclay, Esq., has received his commision, by the last steamer from England, of his apeintment as British Consul of this port. This emovesat once the doubt entertained that the aboitionists of England^had prevailed on his governnent to revoke his appointment. The intelligence will give great satisfaction to lis friends, and the whole commercial community >f New York, both American and foreign. City intelligence* Interesting Arrest of English Burglars.? Those energetic officers Bird,Tompkins and Brown, if the Upper Police, have succeeded in arresting wo burglars whose dexterity and daring in their lusiness have rarelv, if ever been equalled. One is a roung English burglar, aged only 18 years,but who n thet short space of time has been known to the lolice of this city and London, by the numerous lames of Liverpool Bill, alxat Rod, alias James inri William Murnhv nlinm Tin? Ar/1 Arr% TUn uher, his partner, also arrested, is known as Caleb Nichols, alias Conk, brother oi Gus Nichols, the ourglar. On the 2d instant, between the early hours of 6 and 7 o'clock in the evening, these desperadoes stole two bolts from a butcher's cart in Washington street, and with ihem forced off the lock from the :eliar door of the extensive flour store of James D. Board, 210 Washington street. They then made in entrance into the counting house above,and with in oyster knife broke open a desk, and carried off fUMi in gold and silver coin, and $40 in bank notes, tn Saturday following they went to Williamsburgh, which has become a great resort for thieves and mrglars who prey upon the property of our citizens,) ind there divided the proceeds. In sharing the money i bag marked No. 10, that was in the desk, and a French crown and nistareen, among other coin, fell o the lot of Nichols, who buried a portion of it in his bag in an open lot near the Wallabout. Immefiately after the burglary, they hired two roms in Laurens street, between Grand and Canal, and comnenceda show in the way of extravagunce, with heir ill gotten funds, that attracted the attention of lie abo,e named officers. A few davs since. Ni hols. in company with a person residing in Brookyn, visited the spot where the money was buried, nd the former romoved the coin and left the bag n the ground This information was communiated to the officers,and they'obtainedlpossession of le bag. A waiah was then kept on the two larks, nd several peculiar pieces of the money stolen 'ere recoverea ai places wnere mey naa passea l-m. The result was that they were arrested and le furniture in the room they had rented, (which iey have confessed was purchased with the stolen loney) was forwarded to the police offiee for the enefit of Mr. Hoard, if the rogues are convicted. They have partially confessed the burglary,and tand fully committed for trial. The officers deerve much credit for this arrest, as they have thus elieved the community from the depredations of wo resolute and determined midnight robhers. Anothkr Extknsivk Midnight Robbeby.?An old onvict, named Edward Hales, who has been twice n State prison, and Augustus Nichols, brother of Jaleb, the burglar, have been fully committed at he Upper Police Office, on a charge of committing in extensive burglary of a daring character. On he night of the 18th of last month, the extensive :lothing store of John Major, 232 Canal ftreet, cor icr of Renwick, was entered by burglars, and dothesand clothing, valued at $2^1, stolen from the iremises. The above named burglars being suspect d, thev were watched, and a quantity of the stolen lothing was found in the house of Luke Layden, n Cross street, to whom they had sold it. A vest tolen from the store was found in the trunk of Hales rhen lie was arrested, and a pawn ticket from Abraam's office, on which had been pawned a coat, was Iso taken from the (iremises. It appears that they ffected the robbery by firsr breaking of! a padlock 'om a coal box in front of a grocery near the clothlg store. Into this box the articles were placed as ley were brought from the store in arm fulls, and moved when they had succeeded in carrying of! II that they considered necessary for their purposes, 'hey are both fully committed.

THE QBEAT LiircNAan Wiu CASE. Fab.23 ?Firstkiay of the argument,and 10th of the case. This being the day set' apart lor commencing the arguments in thia case, the canoaitr and interest which have been excited, brought tot etfcer a dense crowd of gentlemen (with evon h few ladies) around the door to the court room for some time be ore it was opened. And no sooner u.<? > it...... .. -? i>.... n ..... r.il.,1 . ...? ?i ..... flowing. Among the audience, which was of an'unusuaUy eleva ted anil nitclieotttil Character, there were tome AO or St) ladiet preaeot, to add the fascinations ot their Charms, anil th-' grace ot their perioni ?o the imposing iceae. Many distinguished mrmhcrs ol the Bar were also present, together with a l?rge number of other geullrmen, whom curiosity or interest had brought together. Beiore Mr. Hall began his speech, Oen. SAisroan stated that he should now read the paper which had been intro duced to the jury bv the other side, but which had not yet been read. No objections being made, he read the paper. It appeared to contain Robert Stewart's view of the rase in litigation, so far as the division and disposition of the Lispenard property was concerned?together with some remarks upon the character and position of Alice Lispenard. This paper having been read to the jury, Judge Oakley inquired if the Counsel were ready to proceed with their arguments. anaumknts or Covnsel. The Hon. Willis Hall then rose, and in substance addressed the jury as follows :? I owe an apology to the Court and to the Jury, for entering into a case of such magnitude tnd importance in the midst of it, [Mr. Hall was not present at the commencement ol the trial] especially when I see arrayed against us such a weight and power ot legal talent, as are now present to oppose us. Nor should I be able to pro vccii in urn i mr, wire u noi lor uie proiounu consciousnets which I feel of the right and Justice of our case The whole point of the great question before y ou, it, as to the mental capacity of Alice Lispenardto make a will. 1 shall pass by the deed of 1809, and call your attention particularly, while I have the honor to address you, to the subject Of the will. Here Mr. Hall proceeded to give some portions of the history of the case in its passage from the Surrogate up to the Court of Errors, and also read from the opinion of Senator Verplanck, as recorded in 36 Wendall Ho then -emarkod that the whole question may be thus statod :?Firit, Did Alice Lisp-nard eomprtkend and contttlt to the art of the will? Was it a reasonable and proper act 1 How should she have disEased of her property ? What will would a sane person ave made under her circumstances ? [Here Chief Justice Jonas with infinite difficulty made his way through the door and to the Judge's bench. Another branch of the Court was to be held in the contiguous room, ii a jury could be empannelled. The names of another jury were called over, but only one Juror answered. The Judge, however, retired to the adjacent room, to do the best be coull towards raising a jary, to the great disappeiniment of all present, because they deaired the folding doors to be opened and the two rooms to be thrown into one. Thus at the very opening of the Court, were both ingress and egress rendered almost to tally impossible. After seme delay, the argument was reaumed.l Mr. Hall took the ground that this was a Just and righteous will, and proceeded to read to the jury a large number of opinions from various writers, pertinent to the case; from all which, be came to, the conclusion, that the act of the will stood in the defendant's lavor. The second great point is as to the execution ol the will. The only question is as to her capacity at the very moment of executing the willnot what her capacity was at an early period of her life, or indeed any other period of her life, save at the moment of making the will. To establish her testamentary capacity at this point of her life, Mr. Hall read the testimony of Drs. Nelson and Hunter, and commented thereon.? Was such evidence as is given by these gentlemen to be i overborne by the testimony of amol of witnesses, whose i evidence is of very doubtful character, who give mere rumor and report, and who at best are but mere outside testimony! Here Mr. H. went into the subject as laid down in the books, and made some comments upon the evidence bearing on this second great pomt of the case. But if, | in the next place, they resort to collateral evidence to dis- ] prove her testamentary capacity, then they must prove either a total absence of sense, or great mental weakness j coupled with fraud or imposition. Mr. Hall here adduced cases and opinions from the hooks, relative to this point. He then examined that very strong point found in her father's will, which speaksof the fact that "it had pleated God to give hit daughter Jllict tuth mental imbecility at to render her Incapable oj managing or taking care of property," and he therefore gave her no portion of his estate, but an annuity 01 $aoo per annum Mr. Hall admitted that thia was a very strong point. But he argued that there waa no congenital or connate imbecility of mind. In early youth her mind waa active and lively aa other children of her age. TheBhbsequent weakneaa of mind waa accidental. And then again, waa there no family pride on the part af the father in making thia disposition of hia property 1 Waa shtnot awkward, and ungainly in her appearance? And waa sheauch a person aa a proud father would wish to have placed in a situa'ion which might cast a stain upon hia family escutcheonl But he did grant her $800 p.-r annum, and the money was to be given to her, for her alone to dispose of it. Doesthis look as if her father thought her incapable of managing property! But admitting all thia to be true aa set forth in the lather* will, we shall still maintain that thia clause in|Anthonr Lispenard*s will does not invalidate the will of hia daughter Alice. We shall claim that it does not require the same degree of capacity to make a will, as it does to manage property, and that Alice did possess sufficient capacity?small though we edanit it to have been?to make a will. On thia point. Mr.7Hall adduced authorities from the books. The authorities do not require quantity of mind, but quality. If the quality be good and sound, the law allows a mere modicum of mind to be capable of making a will Mr Hall here proposed, though reluctantly, to enter into this mass of testimony? I collate and examine it. lint he said he should first lay ; down a new plain rules of law by which the evidence , mutt be examined. First, then, the law presumed sanity, i the capacity to be good ; and, therefore, the burden of [ proof lies on the other aide. And ft there be a doubt aa to | the matter of testimentary capacity, then the law requires , that doubt to be given in favor of sanity. And the rule of j law is that the opinion of witnesses, unless they be medi- . c.al men, are of no weight. Another rule is, that hearsay, ! mere rumor, are of the'slightest possible weight. Another [ is that one affirmative tart outweigh* any number of nega- j tive facts. Lord Coke *ays that two witnesses in faror of sanitv outweigh an hundred against it. The wise man it j not always wise ; but the fool is never wise An idiot is ; utterly incapable ot a single act of wisdom ; and if you j can prove, bv a single witness, one single act ol wisdom, , you put to flight a host of acts of folly. Another rule is that if you can find any other mode, than insanity of accounting for alleged acts of idiocy, the law requires you , to do so. I Mr. Hall here proceeded to classify the witnesses for the . plaintiff's, and to comment at ength and individually upon ' the nature of their evidence.' As we have givon the testi- I mony of all the witaessas so fully, we deem it unnecessary I to repeat it again[In the rouraeoi this examination,the folding doors were opened, and the two court rooms thrown together, to the ; very great relief and accommodation of the dense jam ol 1 people, who were anxious to catch the sound of Mr. Hall's j voice.] In concluding th!s brauch'of the argument, Mr. > Hall alleged that every thing tliat|had been proved bv the j plaintiff'sto beftrue,could be easily accounted lor in Alice's j early education?her intemperate habits and her awkward ! ungainly manners. And if the jury could in this way ac- | count for her acts, then the law required them to do so ; and they were not at liberty to assign idiocy inexplanation j of her eonduct. The law'presumes sanity. Before examining the evidence for the defence, Mr. Hall i asked if we were to rent hero, have the plaintifls made out ! their case 1 And here he adduced several legal author! | tiea. He then proceeded to examine minutely .individually, [ and at great length, the testimony for the defence, from < which be deduced the opinion that Alioe had mind?had I intellect ?had memory?had reasoning powers?in short, j had testamentary capacity. Arrgaxoox Srinox. Mr. Hill reaumcd bis argument with some eiplanatory remarks upon some of the weak features aud tender points of Alice's character. On the whole, he claimc 1 that Alice had sufficient mind to make a will. The next question was, whether any undue influence had been exercised upon the miad of Alice. He came to the conclusion that the only influence exerted upon her was that of kindness nnd rommisseration for the misfortune which God had placed upon her. He then made an appeal to the Jury if it would be right for them to cut rtf the last resource of the weak minded and unfortnnate Alice, by denying her the right to make a will. He then called their attention to the fact that the plaintiirs had slept upon their rights for thirty years, and allowed the parties upon the other side to go on d sposing of the property, and granting titles, all of which will be unsettled if their verdict should be against the will. At about six o'clock in the evening, Mr Hall concluded his speech, which occupied altogether about six hours Cmtacts CCoxwts, Esq., then rose aud addressed the Jury for the plaintiffs. He spoke from near # o'clock, until the adjournment ot the Court, at a quarter to ten o'clock. and will finish his speech this forenoon. We shall give the whole of it in to mot row's paper. The Court room was crowded to excess ; a very great number of ladies, whose attention was nnretaxed during the whole day, weie present.

The room was aoon filled with a great crowd of spectators, who m iniic-te.1 an intense interest iit the pro ceedirtrs. The lady was accompanied by a fomale friend, anil looked exceedingly pale. Tiio testimony ot Mrs. Miller, that waa taken down at the examination on Sunday, waa read, and after some slight amemlmenta had been made, waa signed by her. Mr Jordan thi n co menced a further examination ot the lady. In answer to his questions, she replied, that ski was l-J doya on the passage from Norfolk to New York, and that the passage was not considered rough. Mr. J. then requested the witness to state the circum stances of her being taken from Mrs. Sealy's. Some objection was made to this question by Mr. Hall. Mr. J then stated that he deemed it important, to abow the out rageous oflence ol tnit piece ol brutality on an innoccui and helpless woman, by a perton bearing the titlo ol huiband. IT a man, laid Mr. J., commit! any offence againit the lawi, tho circumitencei connected with the commission of the oflence are taken into coniileration, when bail ii fixed. He therefore thought that the peculiar aggravation of the offence ought to be shown, to that if Miller wai allowed to give bail, the bail ihouid be regulated according to the greviovineaa of i he offence. He then itnted what he expected to prove by a further examination A for tome further remarki, the examination waa returned, and was at follows Mrt.

After riding some distance (4 or 6 miles Irom Stamford) Mr. Weed got in. I implored him to have pity on me and take me back It had no effect. I then screamed, and attempted to push him out of the carraige. He then ordered the driver to stop, and got out? I then endeavored to persuade the driver to have pity on me, and he spoke very insultingly to me- M. told him if he did not drive on he'd put a bullet through him. M. had two pistols in his pockets and two large pistols in the front of the carriage. Brown then rode up to the carriage, and I endeavored to persuade him to take me to a place of safety, telling him 1 would pay him any price if he would do so. Brown replied that he waa'nt <o be bought by my money, and that he should aid Mr. Miller. I then threaten ad him, and teld him it was against the law. Miller told him to fear nothing, that he wouH see him safe through every thing, and told me that I was in his power ; that the whole road was bribed, and that every one was on his side. I then asked him why he wished to take me, after attacking my character as he had; that I should think he would be ashamed to take a woman after making the accusations he had. Heth?n said that what henad said was nothing to what he should say. That there was a Mr. Bowton in New York who was a great coward, at whom he had prelented a piatol, and said that he had intimidated him so that ha would (wear to any thing, and that my character would he blackened in every way?that he would prove that I had been with him (Mr. Bowton) for whole days. He also threatened that he would accuse me ol being familiar with two other gentlemen of the names of Valentine and D wight ; but that if I would live with him (Miller) I should escape all persecutions.? I told him I would not if I could get free, as I thought I should, until we had passed H >r lem bridge; he then told me that ne had the game in his own hands, and that I and my family should suffer; all this time the coachman braced back above me in order to screen me from sight. Mr. Miller did not seem to be alarmed, except on passing Westchester, when he told the driver to drive fast through that d?d infected re gion. I screamed and struggled almost all the wav to Harlem bridge; I could not have screamed longer, had there been any hope, as I was entirely exhausted. By my struggles, my areas anil lacings were Diirsi, a? wen as my shoe*, all the combs and pins of my hair were lost, and my hair wa? all down.* 1 knew of a person by the name of Low, when I was at Mrs. Welter's. Miss Weller came up one day and told Mr. Miller, that Mr. Low said, that he would light for witness to the last drop of his blood. When at Mrs. Welter's, 1 heard that thefconductorsof the railroad had been bribed, and that he would stop at any place required; this intelligence was communicated to M., by his biother J. A. Miller, who said it had been done by Mr. Coles, and himself; M. said he had bribed the officers; the offirer whose name was given was Smith. Mr. A. M C. Smith,Police Officer ,here cam*into Court, The witness said she never saw him till yesterday, but had b?en told by M. that the person bribed was the same one that had been employed by her family to search for her. Mr. A. M. C. Smith then departed about his business, very much astonished at the idea of his having been bribed without his knowledge. Mrs. M. continued her testimony?After, arriving at Norfolk I was told by Miller that ir 1 would go with him to the West Indies, I should return immediately to my friends?1 then told him I would go, as I taw no other way el returning to my family. I heard there that M. had become acquainted with Lieut. Porter, and had told him the story of the abduction, and th.t P. had tendered to him the use of the U. S. frigate Pennsylvania tor his protection. I was induced to believe this assertion. M told me he would draw up a statement of the facts, give them to ine officers boarding in the bouse, and that if they deriied in my favor, I might return home: but if they decided in hit, then I must go with him. I refused, because 1 believed them to be all his friends. Shortly after Mr Coles told Mr. M. that he has told mv story to tho gentlemen of the houw, and that they and the magistrate* would protect me, and that i *hould not go to the West Indie* against my will. Cole* told me that if 1 went, M. would take me into the interior ol the Island of Martinique, where I should be left without money, or friends, and probably never be able to return to my family. I then told M. 1 wonld aot go with him; that I was to remain at Norfolk or go to New York, under the protection of the otticers. Much was the situation of atlairs when Mr. Miller arrived. When I told Mil* lerthat I would not go, he said that 1 should ; that he had those that would assist him ; be then consented to come back to New York ; an affidavit was drawn up and I was told if I did not sign it I should never go to New York While at Norfolk Miller told me that he had 13 ruffians armed to the teetn, and that there would be blood shed if 1 did net go to the West Indies. Mr. Colua said that he had as much as he conld do to prevent Miller and his latter _ from rushing in and taking me off by force. Before I con-' aented to go with Miller's father, a statement was drawn up and signed by him in the presence ol the officers, to the effect that he would see me safe to New York. 1 was induced to go in consequence of a letter received from J. A Miller, (C. F's. brother,) to the effect that either my brother or uncle would be at New York when I arrived. I then went on board the brig. A gentleman told J. A. Miller that il I died even a natu ral death, his son would be tried for murder, and he as an accessory. I was told that the clearance papers had been stopped, and that the captain of the tow boat had been directed not to tow off the brig; the navel officeri set up and watched all that night to prevent my being taken off by stealth. Miller had hit pistols out, and set up all night. Before we started, a bond of $10,000 waa given to Captain tireen aa surety for my safe arrival at New York, and my immadiate return to my Iriends. At a quarter paat 0 P.M. the Court adjourned till 4 P.M. to-morrow. As soon as the Court accounted, Mra. Miller, who had conducted heraelf with the greatest fortitude, fell fainting to the floor. After such restoratives as were at hand had been applied, injthe course of a few minutes, the ladv revivad, and was taken home in a carriage. The husband viewed th--proceedings with the most nerfect indifference. The police" were ordered to ?ee that Mr*. M . got to her home in safety. Bankrupt List. SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK.

Jackson's FineBankrupt Bill?Expunging Itesolutlons ? Assumption of State Debts, die. In the House to day, almost as soon * the journal was read, Mr. Adams again tried to introduce his !>ig Latimer petition, brought in on Monday, praying to absolve Massachusetts lrom assisting to catch runaway slaves, and of course it produced much excitement. Mr. Adams (rising and coming out from behind his petition, which completely hides him from the view of the members in front of him)?I ask leave, Sir, to present a variety of petition-* to this House. Mr Wise?Mr Speaker? Severai. Members (rising with warmth and eagerness)?Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker? Mr. Maldory? Sir, 1 object to the reception of these petitions.^ _ t Mr. Adams?Sir, i move a suspension ui mc ruic?. (Great excitement ) Cries of "No, no?go on?order?vote the nigger down." A Voice?I move Mr. Adams have leave to take Ii'ih smut machine out of the House and burn it? (Great laughter.) A Member?I understand it's signed by a runaway nigger feller! Mr. Mai-lory.?I call for the ayes and noes. They were not ordered. Mr. Stanley?Let the vote be postponed till we get the reports from Committees. Several Voices?Agreed The reports were then called for. Mr. Briggs reported the Bill relative to the appointment of Assistant Postmasters by the Senate and President, and recommended that it should not pass. Briggs.?I move, sir, to set apart next Monday to lake up the other Bills reported upon from the Post Office Committee. Andrews, (of K )?Will that include the Bill relating to private expresses on,mail routesl Briggs ?It will. Andrews.?I am opposed to that hill, and I object to the resolution. Several Voices.?Good, Andrews; that's right; it's an infamous Bill. The resolution was then rejected. So in all probability the Bill will not be taken up this Session. Mr. Linn offered a resolution calling on the Heads or Departments logive tne nouse copies 01 an tne contracts made for printing, binding, stationery, &c. and whose bids were accepted, in compliance with the law of 1842. Adopted. Mr. Pendleton called on the Secretary of War to tell the House if Gen. Gaines's salary had been reduced, and by whose order. Adopted. Mr. Stokkly reported a resolution that the Presisident cause a sword to be given to Gen. Clinch, worth $1000, for his services in Florida. Read twice and referred. Mr. Adams moved to take up the French Spoliation Bill, and to close the debate on it at 2 o'clock too-morrow. Saitndkrs?I move to lay ithe resolution on the table. Carried 89 to 80. So that bill is dead fer the see sion. The House then went into Committee of the Whole. Mr. Adams?I npw, sir, ask leave of the House to present several petitions. Loud cries of " No, no, no," and great excitement. Several members here rose up at the same time, and all cried out, "Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker,Mr. Speaker," simultaneously. The House did not go into Committee of the Whole immediately, in order to give members time to present reports. Mr. C. Inoeesoll (in the centre of the aisle, with nevern] member* round him mreatlv exciledl called out Mr. Speaker, I? Speaker?Order. Gentlemen in the aisles will take (heir seats. Conversation must be suspended. (Great noise, and bang, bang, went the mallet ) The House must come to order. (Great uproar.) Inoersoll?Sir, I wish to present a resolution about the Treaty, and to call on the President for information. "Wise?Mr. Speaker. Fillmore?Mr. Speaker. Several Others?Mr. Speaker, I? Speaker?The House will come to order. (Bang. b8n* ) , . Inoersoll?Sir, there is my resolution, and I want the Clerk to read it (throwing it on the desk, und holding in his hand an English newspuper.) Clerk (reads). "Resolved, That the President of the United States he requested to communicate to this House, if not in his opinion improper, whatever correspondence or communication may have been received lrom the British Government, respecting the President's construction of the late British treaty concluded at Washington, as it concerns the right to visit American vessels." (Cries of " No?I object," and " Go on, Ingersoll," and great uproar and excitement, one member calling out in an under tone, " G?d d?n the British, we'll whip 'em yet.'") Inoersoll?(waiving the newspaper in his hand, and cryinglout above the noiae,)?Sir, I have Sir Robert Peel's speech in my hand, and I wish the Clerk to read it. (Cries of " Reaa, read; no, no; go on; Order; let's have the speech Silence!") Inoersoll ?In that speecn he says, " We have not waived one of the principles for which Lord Abberdeen contended in 1841, whose despatch has remained unanswered for 14 months." He eavs furthrr, that he is surprised at the claim now set up by the President of the United States. He also says, it is my duty, in the face of the House of Commons, to declare that the claim to the right of visitation has never been relinquished ; on this subject, we nave made no concession whatever, and to those principles we adhere Ht this moment. In signing the late treaty with the United States, we have abandoned no right of visitation. We did not understand from the United States that they entered into that treaty with any engagement from us to abandon the right of visitation. We did not accept the detachment of a naval force to the Coast of Africa as an equivalent for any right which we claimed. We have not abandoned our claims to that right of vig,tation in the slightest degree, nor did it ever make part of our intention to do so. We have not contented ourselves with leaving the fact to become known by a declaration in this House ; but since the appearance of the President's message. we have taken an opportunity of intimating to the United States the construction we place on the treaty." This is Sir Robert Peel's language in the House of Commons, and it was saluted with cheern from both sides of the House. And he particularly says that lie wishes France to take notice that they have given up no right. Here there was irrejf eyeitemenf nnit nnrnnr nml ihe members began abusing the British pretty severely ; and some said, "I)?n them, let them construe the Treaty one way, nnd we'll construe it another; and ihen we shall have to fight about it after all." In the midst of this uproar, Mr. Ingersoll threw the English newspaper on the Clerk's desk, and walked up the nisle, with many members of both parties around him* Mr Yorkk?1 move that the House meet at 10 o'clock hereafter. Cries of" No no, out of order." Mr. Adams?I now ask leave, sir, to present several petitions^ Cries of " No, no?oh! let him get rid of the d?d old smut machine." (Great excitement*) Hpkakkr?The gentleman asks leave of the House to present several petitions which he holds in his hand. A Mkmbkr?In his hand I Wis*?(Pointing to the great petition rolled round a frame on Mr. Adams' desk,)?Is that thing one of the petitions he holds in his hand, sir I (It weighs about 70 pounds ) Speaker?I presume it is.

Hie rrtoiution tcat then adopud > The House then went into Committee of the Whole. .\lr. i raiiNO moved Intake u/> the'Dill to carry into effect tlu late treaty TIum trat lott The Committee then considered the following bills, and they were finally reported to the House, read a third time and passed ? The fortification appropriation bill; | The bill to lulfil the treaties with the Indians ; and The Navy Pension Appropriation Bill Phe Harbor Bill was discusstd Mr. Uaknakd opposed it,because so much money had already been expended on the West, whilst New York State could scarce get a dollar tor improving the Hudson River, or any other of her waters. The Bill was not passed. The House then refused to agree with the amendment of the Senate, on the Army Bill, appointing 10 extra Cadets, besides one trom each State and Territory; so a committee of conference was appointed. The Billfrom the Senate to refund Gen.Jackson's fine was read twice, and referred to the Committee of the Whole. A message was then received from the President saying thut Com. Jones, in taking Monterey had acted without orders, and had been recalled in consequence. You know that when I first stated this fact the other papers denied it, and so did Mr Wise in the House. But I was right. The House then adjourned. It has still to pass the Harbor Bill, General Appropriation Bill. Treaty Bill, Gen. Jackson's fine &?, Arc., and only 7 days to do all In. In the Senate Mr. Walker's resolutions first came up in order They read thus Resolved, That the assumption of the debts of the States contracted by them separately and for local purposes, would be a palpable violation of the Constitution of the United States, a consolidation of all power in the Federal Government, and a final and total overthrow of the safety of the States. Resolved, That Congress, having no power to assume such dehts, any act attempting such assumption would bo uucn; tiuii ?uu turn , uim ii would mil ue oi'iigiiiory upon the State*, nor could the peoplaof the State* be lawfully required by Congress to pay the debt* so asaumed , nor could any taxe* imposed by them for such purpose* be collected ; and it would be the duty of a succeeding Congress to restore the supremacy of the Constitution by the entire repeal of the act of assumption. Mr. Bayard proposed to modify them, saying that Coneress has no right to assume the State Debts, and that it would be highly injurious to do so. Mr Wat.krr?I wi.l not accept the modification. T wish to show that any kind of assumption of these debts is unconstitutional, and that foreign bondholders have nothing to hope from this or any subsequent Congress. Mr. Talt.madgk said that time was valuable, and he moved to lay them on the table. Mr. Wat.krr?I shall consider that as a test vote. They were laid on the table by the following vote:? Y?*??Me**ra. Archer, Barrow, Bate*, Bayard, Berrien, Choate, Clayton, Conrad, Crafts, Crittenden, Dayton, Evan*, Graham, Henderion, Huntington, Kerr, Mangum, Merrick, Miller, Morehetd, Phelps, Smith, of Indiana, Spra;ue, Tallmadge, Woodbtidge? 2ft. Nat*?Me**r*. Allen, Bagby, Benton, Buchanan, Calhoun, Cutbbert, Fulton, King, Linn, McRoberts, Smith, of Connecticut, Sturgeon, Tappan, Walker, William*, Woodbury, Wiight, Young?18. So you may see from all these movements, the great importance attached to this matter, w hich is undoubtedly to form an element in the next Presidential contest. The Bill to appoint a Minister to China, and the one to re-iesne Treasury Notes were read twice and referred. Mr. YoTlNQ tripfl In let nn lhi> Rnnlrrnnf Ran*,! Bill. But that was made the special order for tomorrow. The Navy Appropriation Bill was slightly amended, read a third time and passed. The rest part of the day was then taken up with with Bayaru's motion to expunge the Expunging Resolutions. He was willing to take the vote now. Mr. Button.?I am willing to take it up alter the Bankrupt Bill iB disposed of. Mr. Buchanan said he wished to speak on the subject. They had not time to discms it this session. Mr. Archer? If the Whigs now expunge the Expunging resolutions, the other purty will have the glory of reinstating them next session. (Laughter ) Mr. Buchanan?This Congress will soon expire, and it will be long before another Senate will meet here who will vote in tavor of such resolutions as those lrom Delaware. The Senate i hen adjourned. It has been snowing all day, and now it freezes. W. H. A.
