I Alderman Jonas snored that the resolution be laid on the table, as it it was adopted the Common Council would be called upon to give to erery association of like kind that makus application. A1 lerman Dim a said, that he believed that opposition to ttie measure evinced a spirit of penny wise and pound foolish character, at a few hundred dollars given in this way, would tend to ad 1 benefits to onr city and country that weie lar above the amount of the donation in any sense that it coul l be calculated. He passed a high compliment upon the character of the German emigrants, and Opposed laying on the table?which was lost. Alderman Snwur said, that this Society had assisted over hOOo emigrants to obtain employment in the interior since its organisation i and by such disinterested efforts had shown that tha donation of such an amount would be wall disposed of. Alderman Smith said that he ahould vote against tha rasolation iu the present shape, and, theretore, moved that the resolution ba referred back, in order that the commit toe might act apon that portion of the application of the society relative to increasing the commutation to $1,26 cents per passenger, and giving the 26 cents to the society. Alderman Balis opposed this motion, aad alleged that the Common Counoil had no power to fix or change the rate of commutation. Alder i un Jonas said he was opposed to increasing the commutation ou tl rmau passengers, but felt disposed to a'iow each of theF.migrant Societies, the sum of 26 cents from each dollar of commutation money. The motion to refer hack made by Alderman Smith, was lost by a vote of IS to 3. The resolution was then adopted by a vote of ayes 14, nay a 2. Alderman Jonas of the 6th, and Smith of the 7th, in the negative.

After some debate the resolutions were adoptedAlderman Davits presented the following :? "Whereas, at the last session of Congress an act was passed, directing the Secretary of tha Navy to examine into thp practicability of erecting in the aity of New Vork a dry dock, the elevating power of which shall be the Cruton water, and whereas it is belie led that such dock can he erected in the city of New York, and the Crotoc water uaed therefor with advantage to the General Geen.

Alderman Pt'snr offered the following preamble and rerolutions :? " Inasmuch as this Republic is deeply indebted to Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of American In Ypondence; as this Common Council feels with the peo le whom it represents, a high admiration for the enthusiasm with which he developed and urged the great principle of civil and religious liberty?for the sagacity wtth which he saw the people's true interest in the beginning nf bis career, aad the moral courage with which ke preserved them inftexibly to the end; as the principles of government which he established remain to this day, not only unbroken but are apparently taking deeper hold of the affections of the American people; and asthepuhlle authorities should, on every proper ocaasion, by their example, keep alive the remembrance of American benefactors. be they statesmen or warriors, it is, if the Board of Assistants concur. wuiuivni, t mi iur ir^oui iuc my uc uiapuv iiuui the City Hall, Battery, ami other public places, from tunrise to sunset on the 13th <lay of April next, and that the propr etart at public buildings generally are requested to do the ?ame, in commemoration of the Centennial Annivery of the birth day of Thomas Jetferson. ' it 'so! v?,l, That these resolutions be published in the newspapers in the employ of the Corporation, officially attosteJ, until the day of the anniversary. Al id. Davits, of the Fifteenth, seconded the resolutions; stating that he thought the Democratic Whig party were bound to pay all due reapect to the event of the Centen. nial Anniversary of the author of the Declaration of Independence. The resolutions were adopted by a unanimous vote. Aiderman|CA ska's ottered a resolution calling for an appropriation ot f 1000, to erect a public dispensary in the 11th ward; which was referred to a special eommittee, CO' sitting of the Aldermen of the 12th, 7th and 3d wards.

Alderman Cbolits moved that the bill of Commissary General Storms for ammunition supplied the military, on evacuation day, was ordered to be paid. Alderman Darics called up the papers relative to allowing the House oi Re/uge the use of a lot of land, in its immediate vicinity, as a garden or plav ground, until the corporation wish the use of it for public purposes. After some debate the resolution granting the ground was adopted. Alderman Davizi called up the ordinance authorizing the Mayor's clerk, appointed under an ordinance of the presunt Common Council, to perform the dutiei recently performed by the First Marshal, in receiving public moneys in the Mayor's office; which was adopted. Alderman Bai.i* moved to take up the report of the Committee of Laws, relative to licensing Weign Masters, Guagars and Measurert. Th - 1st section as amended bv Alderman Balis, author ires the Mayor to appoint as many at be pleases, who must be recommended by three tax-paying citizens.

JThe whole plan of reorganization is in the shape of a hill to be passed by the Logislature. Alderman 8< oi-aa stated that originally the Corporation had ample authority to form such a ys'em of Police aa they might think fit, under the old charter. But it grows into a practice to procure legislative actiou upon the subject,so that now It is impossible (to move an inch withoin running against aom. legislative enactment. Hence it becomes necessary now to get authority from the legiala ure to act. Tha Report was ordered to be laid on the table and printed. And it was also agreed to make it the ipecial order of a special meeting next Monday evening, at A o'clock.

Th? domen' CMf before t fc* United Stttri Court?Its Importance to Civil Liberty. On the first page will be four id a full and accurate report of the very able and i. Mportant argument made yesterday by Mr. John Du tr, in reply to Mr. Ilutler, on the Homers' case, no\ V before the District Court of the United States. It will be seen to be an argument of great force, in terest, aaid depth, and is highly creditable to the reputation and feelings of the speaker in every poind of view. This ia only the first portion of the reply?the remainder will be delivered by Mr. Duer '41-day, and will unquestionably attract more than nsual attention, not only from the bar, the bencb,, the jury, and this community,but from the mam of the people throughout the whole republic. We shall continue to report, with the same promptitude and fidelity, the subseauent speeches and proceedings, tin to the ter ruination and decision of the Ju dge, whenever that may take place. This controversy now assumes a deep and tearful importance?not only to the present parties?not only to the due administration of the laws?not only to the honor ot the navy?but it also has a bearing on the very first and original principles of republican liberty and republican government. For, if this case be divested and stripped of all its legal technicalities?of all its mere words?of all its verbiage and appeal to personal feelings?it will be discovere d to possess a most important bearing on the relatr ve ascendency of the civil and military principle in the action of free institutions. For the firet time, sinew the organization of the United States government, we find the same principles in conflict which characterised the history of the republics of Greece ant I Rome in ancient times, or those of the Commonw ealth of England and republic of France in modem times?namely, a conflict between the ascendancy of the civil and military principle. In A tK*na in R nmo in 17nvlan/1 anrl m I???nna #l?n "VMVU^ *VWIHV> ,M ?MU 4 laiitc, 1UD same content took place?and the Ion el their civil and republican liberties may be dated with the preponderance ot military influence and military power over the civil institutions. This character is singularly exemplified in the position which the] Somen' case now assumes in the District Court of the United States. If the jurisdiction of the civil power of the United States Bhall now be overcome and borne down by the naval power, (which in this case is the most popular branch of the military service), the natural movements of events hereaiter will irresistibly lead to the concentration of all power in a Caesar, in a Cromwell, or a Napoleon. This is the exact position of this important question, and no species of legal refinements or plausible argument can divest it of such an aspect. It behooves, therefore, the court, the grand jury, and the commuuity at large, to watch the movements of this matter, and to see that civil liberty receive not a blow from the military (alias the naval) power, that ages may regret and lament. We shall present every step of these proceedings to the American people, in order that all who run may read?and all that read, may understand. Captaih Robert Tyler.?We find the following correction in the last " Madisonian? Correction?We observe the correspondent of the Ohio Statesman accuses the President with having appointed a son of a woman who keeps the " Alcibiades Club House." in New York, to office, through the interposition of Mr. Hobert Tyler. No such person has been appointed to office, and Mr. Robert Tyler has never even heard of such a person, or seen such a woman. We were surprised that Mr. Medary should publish such billingsgate scandal. We wonder, in the " coalition" arrangements between Benton and Clay, if Mathiot is not the correspondent 1 This is very proper. The first intimation of such a slander appeared in the " Tribune" of last summer, when it was hinted that the young Capting had visited the "Club House" in question. The next was in the " Courier and Enquirer," where it was stated that such an appointment was made.? We are happy te find that both are false. It is certain, however, that Robert Tyler, occu fjtuS WP MW u ?V|J uupviNMlv pvoiUUU) 10 IIUV careful enough ot his company, or of his associations in New York. He has allowed a parcel of miserable loafers to crowd around him, and to lead ofl his attention from his proper duties. Both here and at Washington, these fellows, billiard players and'idlers, hoax him most egregiously, and make him believe the grossest nonsense in relation to the Tyler party, and Tyler prospects. We have heard anecdotes circulating here that would make ahorse laugh. Robert Tyler is a very amiable, intelligent young man, but he is sadly ignorant of things north of Philadelphia. He is, however, in a fair way of learning by experience?not cheap, but dear enough in all conscience. Our Resort of Mr. Butler's Argument in the Cask or the Somkrs' Tragedy ?We perceive that an obscure paper, called the Standard, with a circu iiuioii prouaoiy 01 uve uunarea copies, nas Transferred to its columns the portion of Mr. Butler's argument published by us in Saturday's paper. The editor of this sheet remarks, that " as in the haste of transcribing aotes every reporter is liable to some inaccuracies, this has been submitted to the revision of Mr. Butler." This insinuation againet the accuracy of our reporter, is an impudent fabrication. That report ia most literally correct. We can prove on the very highest authority in the case, that it does not contain a single inaccuracy, except a few trifling errors of the press. If there be any blunders in it, they are the blunders of Mr. Butler himself. And we cannot imagine any thing more contemptible than the conduct of some gentlemen, who are occasionally found running to some paltry and obscure sheet, with their so-called corrections of speeches reported by us, and treating with most ungrateful contempt the party to whose enterprise, labor, and pecuniary expense, they are entirely indebted for the valuable privilege of appearing before the public at full length. We have always, heretofore, esteemed Mr. Butler as a man above such little tricks, but his conduct in this instance, has been of the most diminutive smallness. lirrm a Windfall?We are gratified to leant that our very worthy feliow citizen, Thomas Morris, Esq., aon of the late very distinguished financier of the revolution, Robert Morris, Esq., has, within a few days, obtained judgment in the Supreme Court of the United States against the property of the city of Philadelphia, known as the Fairmount Hydraulic Works, by means of which he will come into the fposeession of a property of more than two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Theabovesuit has been pending far eight years, and we know na instance wherein so favorable a result could have terminated more happily. North River ?We understand that the river is open to Poughkeepsie. The Columbus, Captain Stone, left this morning with the intention of going to Peekskill. We shall expect to hear in a short time of the river being open to Albany. How to Beautify the Complexion ?Take a medicated vapor Bath at Mrs. Carroll's, 26 Courtlandt street. These baihs are the greatest beautifiers of the complexion that exist. They possess tha power of taking out of the cheeks and brows every stain, spot or wrinkle, and of giving a youthful halo to the oldest face. French P?ovij?cul Life ?A new novel from the pen of H. de Balyac, translated by Gould, illustrative of the provincial life of France, and marked by all the vigor and sparkling brilliancy of style, and variety and interest of thrilling incident, which characterize tha works of this distinguished writer, will be published by Winchester, the Napoleon of modern cheap literature, to morrow morning, and will be lor sals at tkus ofhao The Great Tyler Blow Out.?Don't f orget that t he Great Tyler Mem Convention ia to be held at the Broadway Tabernacle on Wedneaday?to-morrow evening. It aeema that Cuahin? and Proffit will both attend and deliver speeches on the occasion John Jones, of the Madisonian, hns published the annexed new Tyler ditty, the first ever printed, to be sung on the occasion. When David Hile first hired the Tabernacle to the vocalists, Woods, for a sacred concert, he expressly forbid them to sing any " carnal songs." Whether the following is a " carnal song," or not, we can't tell?but it seeins flat enough for a fish ditty i? " Pro Patria." What has caused this great commotion, Mstion, raotiou, all the country through! It is the People, gathering all, Responding to their country'sosll, To ^>ut down the ultnCs cry and hue; auu ruey -11 uo it witn Tyler, too, too, too, too, And they'll do it with Tyler, too. Shall Democrati lorget their rights? Right*, right* all good and true; And allow the ultra* their Tory notion, To put their ball of pride in motion, To put their ball of pride in motion, And cruth the country through, thro', thro', And crush the country through! For, American*. I with you to knowKnow, know?for I swear it i* true, That the veto power he** held tothi* hour, That the veto power he'* held to this hoar, And vetoed four bill* that I knew, (In common with you) did John Tyler, too, teo, too, Did our staunch friend Tyler,too. The ultra's bare sworn loudly; sworn, ti* (aid, Said, said, said, and most true, They would the Capting surely head, They would the Capting surely head; But they made a mistake, and pardon I beg, For I think their error they '11 rue, rue, rue, rue,? A* defeated they are by Tyler, too. No, no, no, we'll all of us swearSwear, swear, firm and trueTo act to a man, and do all that we can? To act to a man and do all that we can For that patriot true, te whom it is due? Our firmest of friends, Jno. Tyler, too, too, too, toe, Our firmest of ft iends, Jno. Tyler, too. There?i? not that a roarer! Whether it will Bet the North River on fire, we'll wait and see. Next Mayoralty.?The whiga held their first set of clase meetings last evening, pointing to the next election of Mayor and Charter Officere. A similar movement will shortly be made by the locofocos, and probably another by the Tyler party. As to the candidates tor the Mayoralty, not much yet is positively known. So far as we have heard, the prominent party candidates are as follows:? Locoroco. Robert Morri?, Elijah F- Purdy, James R. Whiting, Eh Moore. Whio. Robert Smith, John A. Lawrence, Morris Franklin, Egbert Benson, President Woodhull. Trnsa. M. M. Noah, Moses Y. Beach, Paul B George, Jeremiah Town, Deacon Herrick, John Goose, Barnabas Blockhead. So there will be no want of candidates, however the votes go. City Intelligence. An old Man would be Wooing.?One day last week, Oliver Johnson, grocer, of the corner of Market and Madison streets, had his pockets picked by two streetwalkers, of a gold pencil case, and about $260 in money. It appears that while he was in the grocery store at the south east corner of Nassau and Jahn streets, nhnnt the middle of the Hnv. the two girls, known as Kate Hays and Hannah i Heustis, were called in by some persons in the store, 1 and after a little chat and talk, some one said, ' " Gals, kiss old pop?he'll take it easy," or something to that effect. Without a second proposition, they both closed in upon Oliver, and in the tusael for the amatory embrace, the girls fully succeeded, and then left the store, with all hands highly tickled at the feat. In a few moments afterwards, however, it was discovered, that while endeavoring to embrace friend Oliver, they had managed to abstract his pocket book, containing nearly $300, and his gold pencil case, which were in different pockets in his vest. On Saturday night officers McGrath and Joseph arrested Kate Hays, and found the stolen pencil case in her possession, and yesterday secured Hannah Heustis, but found nothing on her that had been stolen. None of the money has been recovered* Byrnes, the Supposed Foroer.?We perceive that some friend of this prison bird has published a eard in one of the morning papers, asking the public to suspend their opinion as to his guilt in forging the checks of Simeon Draper. Jr., on the Manhattan Bank, for $6 600 We should suppose that after his first escape from the officers of justice in Philadelphia, his re-capture, his recognition by the persons to whom he gave the checks to be cashed, dec., dec., that such a card was rather uncalled for, to say the least of it. Died Ai/mce.?Elizabeth Laurence, recently engaged as cook in the family of H. Hitchcock, 25 Cherry street, retired to rest on Sunday night in ai>parent good health although complaining of a slight headache, and was found dead in her bed yesterday morning. Verdict, " death from apoplexy." She was a very temperate woman. Sudden Death ?On Sunday evening, a man eallin? himself Patrick lioonpv. entered the tnvera of Alexander McClurc, No. 2 Pulton street, and having obtained lodgings, retired to rest about mid- i night. He was taken sick a short time afterwards, and died before morning. He represented himself as recently from Savannah. The coroner's jury returned a verdict of "death from congestion of the lungs." Death of a Blind Man.?Michael O'Brien, a^ed 69 yeara, a native of Ireland, who has been blind tnr the past six years, died suddenly yesterday morning at his residence 21J Orange street, from dysentery, and lack of medical assistance. Verdict of coroner's jury accordingly. RonBiNG a Woman.?A man, named Michae Hart, was committed yesterday on a charge of steal ing$27 in silver coin, from the trunk of Ann Len non, of 392 Cherry street. Opening of the Spuing?New Yobk HotelsFranklin House, Broadway.?We call the attention of our readero throughout the country, to the advertisement of the proprietors of the Franklin House, a hotel of the first character in Broadway, and with a position very central and convenient for business. It will be perceived that in consonance with the spirit of the day, a considerable reduction has taken place in the prices?while the accommodations, fare, larders, tables, all remain sb they were. This is a right and proper course, and will, no doubt, meet the approbation of their extensive circle of customers throughout the country. Chatham Theatre ?Mr. C. Eaton appears this evening as Hamlet, a character in which he has obtained a well merited celebrity. The other parts in the play are well cast, embracing the choicest spirits of Thome's superior company. This will afford a treat to the lovers of the legitimate drama rarely equalled, and as there will doubtless be a great rush, seats should be secured early in the day The highly successful drama of the " Collegians." is also announced for this evening, together with the Virginia Minstrels in their popular extravaganzas. Theatrical, Acc.?Messrs Nagel and Dempster are still giving toncerts ia GeorgiaThe Seguins are at Charleston, performing to crowded audiences in "La Soanambula," "The Barker of Seville," and other old favorites. Park Theatre?Considering the weather last evening, this house was very respectably filled. The new play of " Mothers and Daughters" was periormed, but we did not see enough oi it to form any correct idea of ita merits. Mr. Cmrkhuoh's Second Concert.?Mr. Clin-hugh and the Miaaes Cumming held their second concert laat evening at the Apollo. Notwithstanding the ezcesaive inclemency of the weather the house was filled, though not uncomfortably crowded as it was on the first evening. The Miaaes Cumming sang to the great admiration of the audience, and the lovers of Scottish song enjoyed a delightful entertainment. Aj-i-Nations Hotel,?Late Kremun.?This Hotel is now re-opened under the management of Mr. Cotter, so long and favorably known to the publit. Those who know him will give him a oall, and those who so not. will be happy to make his uognaintanos Further Particulars or the Earthquake We have received by the Ellen, Captain Knowles arrived yesterday from St. Thomas, a few addi nonal particulars of the dreadful earthquake a Point Petre, &c. Not a home remains standing nt Point Petre All those which were not destroyed l>y the earth quake, were burnt down by a fire, which unfortu nately broke out soon alter the eruption of nature No lest til/in eight thousand licet were lost- Tu'i thousand wtte literally swallowed up in the earth The American consul was shockingly injured, ant died soon after he had been taken on hoard tlu American brig Lively. Martial law was proclaimed immediately after the disaster, and all vessel' searched for stolen property. The American car goes that had been landed were totally destroyed. There were very few lives lost at Antigua, but al the buildings were thrown down by the revulsion We cannot learn that any island had been sunk a; reponea. At St. Bart's the Church and several other build ings were thrown down, and the earth opened ii the centre ofa a;reet to the width of a fcot, the fin sure extending 600 yards in length. Only 10 live were lost at Antigua, although almost every buildim in St. John's was thrown down At St. Eustatii the damage was confined mainly to buildings, sotm being very badlv injured. At St. Christoidier's se veral of the public buildings were utterly destroyed Onlv one lite lost, but some others were badly hurt At Nevis and St. Bartholomew's the earth openei und water with a sulphurous smell issued front th< crevices. Nothing farther had been heard frOB Montserat. When last seen the island was envelop ed in a dense cloud of smoke or idust. The sei around was violently agitated. At St. Vincent thi shock was felt but slightly. [Corrwpondance of the Herald.] St. Thomas, Feb. IS, 1843. Dear Sir? Yon no doubt will be anxious lc learn the particu lars of an event which occurred here a few day* ago, Hnd which cansed much dismay at the time On the morning of the 8th of this month, at 35 mi nutes past 10 o'clock, a tremendous shock of ai earthquake was felt at this place, which continuei

for lull two minutes, causing the houses to rocl about like a boat at sea, accompanied by a hollov grating sound, as if an immense steam boiler wa blowing off steam in the bowels of the earth, am which made the blood in one's veins cease circulat ing. It however caused but little damage, althougl the shock was of snch long continuance, mereb cracking some of the houses, and frightening thi inhabitants It was really distressing to hearth* cries of the women and children flying from then homes into the street, some running to and fro,fran tic with fright, and others kneeling in the streets sapplicating the Most High for mercy in their hou of need. It was some time before they recoverei sufficiently to have the courage to enter their deser' ed homes. The only lives lost were by fright. Tw< or three women, one of whom was confined to i sick bed, died from the effects of the shock on thei nervous system. It whs felt very sensibly on boan the vessels in the harbor; and a vessel from Nev York, bound to this port, was so sensibly effected i lat. 20deg. 40 m. nerth, long. 63deg. west,some 301 miles from this, that they supposed she had struct some thing, and the captain never found out th cause until he arrived here, and heard of the earth quake. But. although we have escaped destruction, ou neighbors have not been so fortunate, and it is will much pain I record the total destruction of the citi of Point a Petre, Guadeloupe. Th* shock was fel there at almost the same time as here, but will more dreadful effect. In a few seconds all thi houses built of stone or bricks were prostrated am levelled to the earth, leaving only a few woodei buildings standing, when flames burst out from th< earth, destroying everything that was left, anc roasting the poor suffering maimed wretches in th< ruins, who were unable to help themselves. A1 the houses and outworks of the surrounding planta tions were destroyed, and the city and country pre Bent nothing but a heap of ruins. It is estimate! that ten thousand persons have lost their lives, fron two to three thousand more maimed and dying, am the rest of the poor wretches, almost crazed, ar< wandering about among the ruins, half famishei with hunger and thirst, and almost naked, as the< have given part of their garments to bind up thi wounds of the poor unfortunates. There is a Frencl ship employed in carrying the wounded to Bassi j erre, wmcn nassunerea dui little in comparison ti the Point, the population of which was estimated a twenty thousand souls.

Q?What was Mr. Spencer', position before the Commander went to him that day ?? A ? Isuw him sitting on a camp stool, with his bead on j bis hands, aud shortly after that 1 observed him in conversation with the commander. Q?Did you hear him dictate any letter to tho commander? a?I don't recolt b-ctj 1 saw him in the same position, and may have heard the commander order pen and paper, for 1 saw him with it Q?Where was you at the time I A?1 wus abuft the ( mainmast, and lor a short time I was nearer than McKin. ley. Q?How long did the writing continue ? A?1 do ' not recollect; 1 was aot present the whol-time Q-Did . you hear Captain McKenzia ask Mr. Spencer if he wish ed to write home ? A?No, sir; I've reported all the conversation I heard in my former examination. Q?Did I the commander,before your arrival at St. Thomas, tell you to whom Mr. Spenoer did write, while he, McKenzie, was acting as his amanuensis? 8 Mr. Sedowics?Why, sir, that assumes that he did write. Juaec Abvocatb?Most assuredly. Capt. McKenzie i has admitted it. II A very angry conversation then ensued as to what the 1 i- accused had admitted. The written record was referred i s to, sad at last the Judge Advocate agreed to modify bia i ;r question to thia?Did Captain McKenzie tell you, before j your arrival at St. Tnomna, that Mr- Spencer had sent a . written message to hia friends or any one of them. A? 1 No, air; my impreaaion ia that he did not write; did not 1 aend any message. Q?Did you hear Captain McKcazie i make an address to '.he crew after the execution? A?/ htlitve I heard all the addresses he made. Q? Did the commander inform or signify in his address ajttr Ihe execution, i f lhai Mr. Spencer had hien telling him lin for half an hour i 1 he/are he toes hung; thai he had died full of lies in his I ? meuih, or wordato that effect? A?I do not know but he I j did. Q-Did Mr. Spencer ever tell you that he had no thought oi mutiny ; it was all a mere foolish talk ? A? | I've no recollection ol it. Q?When did you first hear i that Spencer had aent a written meaaage to bia trienda ?? i A?I did not hear it at all. Q?Nor any one of them?? i A?No, nor anv one of them. The Judge Advocate said -1 have no further qseatiana, i air. I Midahipman Eqbeut Thommoi* was next called and examined aa to the converaation |which ensued between Small and the Commander, which ia unimportant aa the witneaa did not recollect it. 1 Q?What passed between Speaeer and the Commander 1 before the former waa executed? A?The Commander t spoke to him; I did not bear the reply, but Dunn was orv dei ed to bring a camp stool and pen and paper. The Commander sat down oa the arm chest and wrote. Q? I Waa Spencer's face so that you could command it? A? 1 Tea, 1 could see hia face. Q?Seeing hia face what should you judge waa passing between him and the Common der? A?The Commander was writing some of the time and was conversing some of the time. Here Mr. Sedqwice interposed and wished the Court to stop this kind of questions, or to call on the Judge Advocate te give his theory of the case. The Judge Advocate said he was willing to do so if the Court did not think he was proceeding regularly. The Judge Advocate then said, " my theory is tnis, that in his dying moments Philip Spencer did dictate a message to his friends, giving a statement of what occurred, and denying any intent of committing a mutiny. That he said then, it was a mere foolish hoyish whim he had Rot in his hea l, and which he had been amusing himself with? That he bad no ill will to Capt. McKenaie, although he may have taken some exceptions to his general manner.? That he never dreampt of compassing his death. That in a word, he dictated the whole story in his dying moments in the expectation that the paper would be sent to his friends." The President said?but how can you expect to get at it? Here the Judoe Advocate referred to Capt. McKenzie's official narrative, and it was there found that the Commander had told PHILir SrENCER that what message HE WISHED to send to his er1 ends SHOULD BE FAITHFULLY RECORDED and bult DELIVERED. ' A great deal of angry discussion ensued after this, in the course of which the President said that in his opinion three fourths of the testimony had no bearing on the case: to which the Judge Advocate replied, that he considered ] this the most importaut part ot the case. , The President said, as an instance if this, the first day the carrying away of the mast had been enquired into? every member of the Court understood it, and yet whole days had been spent ea it since. The Judge Advocate asked the President if he spoke for the whole Court, and then strangers were ordered to withdraw, that the question might be discussed. The Court decided that the examination should continue. Q?Did the Commander appear to listen,and thea write? A?I don't recollect; it does not appear now that he did. Q?Did the Commander address any observation to you? A?No; I think he told Mr. Perry to note the time; this was after he had spoken to the others; Mr. Perry and myself both noted the time. Q?Did you report the end of ' the time? A?I think 1 did, but it is impossible to note all such trivial things so as to recollect tbem now?such as that Mr. Spencer held his head on his hand. Q?Did you regard it as a trivial thing to note the ten minutes which was to be the expiration of Mr. Spencer's life? itNo; my remark was with respect toother things. Q? What was the Commander doing when you reported to him? A?He was sitting employed by Mr. Spencer?he was writing and conversing with Mr. Spencer. Q -What did ha say to you? Did he say Mr. Spencer is engaged t writing home to his friends, or words to that effect? A? 1 He said, vary good, or something of that^kind, but I do not I recoiipci ii ne paia anytDing ddbui Mr. spencer tnen. (4? II On tuch a matter cannot yon be positive? A?My ira p predion is that he did not. Q?How long did the writing continue! A?I cannot recollect; my impreaaion ia, not 1 long; I don't recollect if the Commander read what Mr. 1 Spencer had dictated- Q?Did you tee Mr. Spencer in teart that day?il to, whent A? I taw him agitated, but 1 8 can't tay when. Q? Did he not fall on hit IcneetT A?1 s don't recollect. 1 cant twear that Spencer waa out of the camp etool from the time the Commander announced hit || doom until he wat taken forward to be hanged. My impreuion it that he wat not. Q?What patted netwoen you and Mr. Spencer? A?He ' shook me by the hand, taid be had no ill will toward! me, (> and begged me to take warning by hit fate. He then asked lor Mr. Rogers I went to call him, but it slipped my melt mory, aa I waa on the look oat for a vessel- Q?Have you J a had memory? I can't say that I have a good one. Junta ADvectTK?Look, tir, at the proceedings of the Court of ? nquiry, and say if yon did not say, that you did j not hear Mr. Spencer say any thing from the time ol hit , arre?t up to his execution. WiTstu ? Yu, il ii ii there, hut I do nit knew whether that it my ontwtr?if I answered it to, I probably did not understand the question to have any reference to Mr. Spencer1* remarks to me. Q?Would you not think the ? expression, take warning by my example an important thing to remember? A?Y11, and miri to if the warning s had bun givin by a more ildtrly perion In thil eaie MrSpenctr't warning tees sincere. Q? How do you know it wat sincere? A?I <iont think a man in hit circumstances ' would make light of such a matter; and bit manner wat t very tiacere alto. Q?Why then did you not tell it to the y Court of Enquiry? A?My attention wat not drawn to it. i, Q? If the conversation of Mr. Spencer wat to serious, why 0 did you neglect to tend Mr. Rogera to him? A?Because he wat forward, and I wat ttatioued aft, which station I . could not leave. I could have told tome one, hut it slipped my memory. The officers were all stationed, and I should not have left mine under any circumstances. Q?How long a time elapsed from the time the commander talked about tan minutes until they ceased the interview? I cant tell: I should think ten or fifteen minutes. It was longer than that, sir; I should suppose twenty minutes. Q?Had you had a recent quarrel with Mr. Spencer? A?Yes, tir, a personal altercation. Q? Did it result in a fight? A?Yes, in a scuffle?He struck me and I returned the blow and then threw him down. J' The first Lieuteaant then came and ordered us to detiit. *' It wai alterwardi made up and we were on friendly termi. ' Q?How long wae thia before the arrott 7 A?It was before we arrived on the Coast of Africa. Q?At what hear * where the men strung up at the yardsrm 7 A?About one ? o'clock. Q?Did von hear any thing said about the intert ment having a bad effect en the disaffected if made by candie light 7 A?I still thought there was a chance of their ? raising. Q? Did you see Mr. Spencer on his knees on the * day or the execution 7 A?No, sir, not to my knowledge. ' Cross Examined by the Accused?I noticed Cromwell's | manner to be very suspicious one afternoon before the ar^ rest, while doing some daty. When I'd dona he appeared relieved, as if he had been afraid 1 was going to speak about the matiny which 1 that time knew nothing of His _ manner was suspicious, as if he was afraid of something " I was about to reveal. His manner was disrespectful, but not insolent. Ha did not touch hi^ bat as I recollect. I do not think the Somers could have been taken intt any part if the execution had not taken place.
