Friendship here is of the warmest order while one lives, but the moment dead, he is forgotten. One lives here but to enjoy life, and as we cannot have enjoyment with the departed, we allow our affections to be entirely controlled by the living. By many, I may say very many who have never had the pleasure to visit our beloved city, it is said th t we are a wicked people, (jiven much to sinning in various ways and forms; from robbing by night, to insulting ladies by daylight. Now this is a great mistake, as all those who have ever tasted of' oar hospitalities can vouch for. From the hour that the eight o'clock gun is fired (which is a warning for all negroes to make for thtir resi>ective homes) scarce a person is seen in the streets; it is so still that one would think it a city without inhabitants, witnthe exception of a small space in the neighborhood of the ball rooms, where your northern young and old men go every evening (Snndays not excepted) when here, and are the entire support of j those establishments, as it is very rare indeed that | you will meet a regular resident of the city in those I dens of dissipation and crime. But a truce to tins now; some other time I shall take occasion to sav more on this subject. The weather thus far in this month has been extremely cold, more so than it has for the last twelve years it will put our sugar planters much back in planting their next crop ; also the lower cotton plantations. Judge Waggaman diod on the 23d instant, Jrom the effect of the wound he received in his late duel with D. Prier, Esq. His funeral was attended yesterday by most of our military companies. We are without anything very important from Mexico or Campeachy, though the next news is looked for with much anxiety, as there is a iumor that Santa Anna is about to offer terms of peace to Texas If so, he will, without doubt, push the war hard against Yucatan. That are comet, as it is called here (since Dr. L<ardn?r hassaid it was one) we have the pleasure o( Beeing every evening. By the way, the Doctor's lectures had a great run here, and 1 understand that^ie has concluded to repeat them, many not being able to attend the first. Our election lor Aldermen comes off on the firsi Monday ol April, which will be a pretty animatec time. I apprehend, as the moderates of both parties are determined to have a reform of the present fi nancial doings in the second municipality, and tc this effict called a large meeting last week at th? Arcade, and made their nominations. This has pu the ultra whigs in a great rage, and they know noi what to do; they dread the examination that thej win pe orougiu to 11 ine moderates suouiu gain tn? day. It ia quite in vogue here now for our military companies to give balls in memory of some great mar or saint, and the one given last week on St Joseph's eve, at the St. Louis ball room (in the St. Louis hotel) by the Orleans Guards, one of our oldest and best companies, was a splendid affair. It was entirely an invitation ball, and of course select. The company began 'o assemble at eight o'clock, and continued to pour in until past twelve. I noticed tut few what is termed American or northern ladiei present, but ol Creoles or natives of this city anc State there were plenty. Among some of the most prominent present, I no ticed the enchanting Miss , and as she whirle< through the waltz, it was impossible for one to kee| their eyes off of her. She will make a charmini wife for some gay young man, with a pocket full o Mexican castings. Miss , all! what shall I say of her mon than that she was admired by every one, and th< queen of the evening; that wreath looked exceeding ly becoming. Miss never looked to better ad vantage, I think, than on that evening; every mov< and motion was perfect grace and ease; and ther her broken English sounds so solt and musical, j had wished to dance with you again, but lo! yet were gone. Miss never looked better; I think she has that young fellow well tangled with love'i silken cords. Miss was all life and animation and drew a troop of admirers about her. Miss oh! you are too bad to keep that young fellow ir hot water so long. Miss looked more beau tiful than ever, if any change could be discovered Miss and Miss of the same street. Yes they were there, and what, ye gods, 6hall I pen tha will not diminish the charm thrown about tneml might say that thay are very modest, entertaining intelligent, accomplished, and to my taste and no tion, beautiful.

Mr. J. G. Bknnktt? Dear Sir As you seem not to have a regular correspond en in this place, I propose to give you the details of i horrid affray which occurred in this borough yes terday. The origin of this fatal rencontre is as fol 'ows :? At a meeting of the locofoco party, in Ports mouth, a few weeks since, Bernard O'Neil was no minated and elected a delegate to a Convention ti be held in Suffolk for the purpose of nominating i suitable candidate to represent the party in the nex Congress. It seems that some remarks made b O'Neil did not accord with the views of a portioi of the party, and another meeting was called an< his name was stricken from the list of delegates but as he is a man of some influence over a certaii portion of the community in which he lives, ih< more knowing ones of the party called another meet ing, and again elected him as a delegate. At tha meeting Vtordecai Cooke, Jr. made a speech in hii favor, and in couise of his remarks made, allusion; to Mr. M. Gardner, editor of one of their papers it the same place Mr. O. was not present, but heart of the attack and replied through his paper. At thii Mr. C. took offence, and armed himself with a pisto and cowhide tor the purpose of chastising him when he should meet with him. He sought him both in Norfolk and Portsmouth, but did not succeed ir finding liim until yesterday, when they met ncei centally on the ferry wharf. Mr. C. accosted Mr G. and demanded au apology , or retraction of what he had said, which he positively refused to do. Mr C. then raised his cane to knock him down,and Mr G. drew a pistol, a scuffle ensued and in it Cooke ob tinned possession of the pistol and c eliberately shoi Mr. G. through the heart?he lived about threr minutes and then expired. Cook immediately weni to our worthy Mayor Miles King, nnd deliverec himself 1111 sfnlimr the rirrnmsfhnres nnnn u/hiet. he ordered the pistol to be safety lodged iu the bo rough jail, and told Cook to go home, that when he wanted him he would let him know it. However, another Justice of the Peace issued a warrant foi his arrest, gnd he was safely lodged in jail until thii morning, when he was brought before a Magistrate, and after much and eloquent pleadings of John Miller and T. Taylor, Esquires, he waa fully discharged Mr. Cook is a young man of hi^h wealthy and influential connexions, and Mr. Cardneris a perfect stranger, not having been here but six months, and a very poor man?he has left a wife and three helpless children, dependent on the community. It is rumored here this evening thai his wife is dead, and if so it is a double murder. The citizens of Portsmouth subscribed this day and paid #500 for the benefit of the widow and orphans, which is very creditable to them, inasmuch as they are, as I before stated, slraiigeis in this community Here then we see the difference between the poor
and the rich. 1 am satisfied in my own mind, had it been just opposite, thatihe poor man would now be in prison in spite of all the counsel he could obtain. I have never teen so great an excitement in this place in my life. The reason that I write yon is that the papers here have not independence enough to state the facts as they transpired. A. B. C. Aoain.?Adams <te Co. waa again far ahead of the mail vasterday morning. 5RK ] I MORNING. APRIL 5, 1! Mr, Dner'i Lectare on Insurance? Failure of the Course. Mr. Duer gave Ins first lecture on Monday evening at the lecture room of the Library Society, Clinton Hall, on the law of Marine Insurance. The audience, although not numerous, was very respectable Amont those present we noticed Chancellor Kent, J udge Kent, Judge Vanderpoel, George Griffin, benjamin F. Butler, District Attorney Whiting. Ogden Hoffuan, and several other distinguished members of the New York bar. The learned gentleman commenced by saying, that the law of insura ce is not to be regarded as municipal .law : it boasts a nobler and a more universal origin. It is lounded on the law of nations, and it depends in a greater or less degree on universal law. The law of nations upon questions arising oat of maratime laws, such as freight, bottomry, sea prizes, shipwrecks, hostages, See., is adopted by the common law. There are no other principles by which such questions can be decided. The lecturer then went on to describe t le law merchant, and to draw a distinction between it and the law ot nations. He said, tiiat the tormer was not a branch of the I itter, in the sense that BUckstone used it. To illustrate this view, he said no people could alter the law of natious to suit their own convenience; hence litis law could not be applied to the law merchant. But every nation can make laws to regulate its own commerce; hence, he said, the law merchant at all events can only be an imperfect branch of the law of nations They resemble each * other in the sources from which both are derived, but they differ in the obligations they impose, and the rules by which such obligations are enforced. Mr. Duer continued to say, that whether the law of Marine Insurance was, or was not known to the ancients, is a problem not yet solved; but it is admitted that contracts of bottomry and respondentea were well known and extensively used, and are mentioned in the code of Justinian, and in the Roman pandicts He said that it was the opinion of Park, Marshal, and some other eminent jurists, that marine insurance contracts were unknown to the Romans. Those opinions, he said, were founded upon the fact that no trace of this particular contract could be found in the Roman code; that ancient commerce was limited; that their voyages were coastwise, and necessarily short. He then took an historical review of the cammerce of Tyre, Carthage, Rhodes and Alexandria, a rtrt PAnfpndpH th?l it wxft i mnnvsi hlt> thuf nutinrw trading with all parts of the world then known, could he ignorant oi the contract ot marine insurance. He also contended that coasting voyttges were the most dangerous, and that tne bravest and most skilful sailors were nursed in the coasting trade. . He also showed from historical records, that voyages were made by the Romans, to Spain, to India and other places, and that the customs upon merchandize imported from Egypt to Rome in one year, 1 amounted to one hundred and thirty millions of dollars, which was more than the whole of the comr merce of Europe at the present day. He then pro' ceeded to account for the law of marine contracts ' not being mentioned in the code ot Justinian. He " said it was not intended by that code to abrogate or ' supercede all local laws, and it was probable that all 1 questions arising out of marine contracts, were de' cided by local courts specially established for the ' decision of those questions. Hence it was not to ' be concluded, that the marine contract of insu' ranee, was unknown to the ancients. At the conclusion of the lecture, Mr. Duer stated that a sufficient number of subscribers not having 1 been obtained, he could not proceed with the 1 course ; but he said that he would either return the | subscriptions, or proceed to give f ur lectures, ' which would cover the amount he had received. He then left the room, after which a meeting was ! organized, and Chancellor Kent called to the chair. ' Tt wim mnvprf iin?l uepnnrleil that Mr. Duer be re ' quested to give the four lectures, and that in the ? mean time measures would be taken to have the ' subscription list filled. j Movements in Mexico.?It is said that Santa Anna has sent an agent, in the person of Judge llob? inaon, one of the San Antonio prisoners, to Hous ' ton, to treat for peace between Texas and Mexico. . We think this very probable. Santa Anna is one of the clearest headed men in his country, and he - sees the folly of continuing a war against the Anglo I Saxon race, in the prisent unsettled,anrachicalcon\ dition of the Mexican people; and he sees too that in [ attempting to recover both of the lost Pleiads, 1 TexaBand Yucatan, he will get neither, and perj chance be overthrown at home. Very wisely, t therefore, he has concluded to let Texas slip, and , devote his whole energies to the recovery of Yu1 catan, the inhabitants of which are the most enterprising and energetic of the Mexican race. , This movement is very favorable to Texas. She J is in no condition, either financially or physically, to go to war; and if her independence will be ac. knowledged in a quiet, peaceable way, she must consider herself the most fortunate of nations. > i City Intelligence. The Prize Fight Trials will be continued at [ Bedford, Westchester county, on Tuesday of next ,* week. De Forrest and Lewis's line of stages will be the most convenient mode of conveyance from this city. They leave the corner of Broome and Bowery from the railroad hotel by the 9 o'clock train of cars. Remember " De Forrest and Lewis's line." f Joint Meeting.?Both Boards of Aldermen meet this evening in Joint Ballot. Several important appointments are to be made. The Attempt to Break Prison?The burglar t John Moffatt, who succeeded in escaping from his t ceil in the city prison 90 Sunday night, but not from the prison, was examined yesterday on the charge. He implicates Isaac Rice, Charles Mureden, ChHS. or Phiiip Green, and John, the white washer in the prison, as accomplices in his escape. He had been , supplied with a gimlet, marling spike and knife, by Green, and Rice was to have aided in his escape " after he had obtained egress from the prison. This 0 was to he effected by seizing the pistols belonging a to the night keeper, and then forcing him into a cell and close the doer until he had time to make his ' exit. Wehaveolten wondered why Col. Jones 01 V Mr. Homan, his deputy allowed old convicts to } enter the prison on any excuse or reason, and they 1 have now learned a lesson that may prompt more ^ strict rules at the outer gate than have been formerJ ly practised. ; Attempt to Drown Herself.?A woman named ' Mary Holland attempted to drown herself on Monday evening, by jumping into the East River, from ' whence she was rescued by a city watchman. She 4 was taken to the Ciiy Hospital, where she lies danI gerously ill 1 Hnporlor Court. I A lull Court present !

The deelaration contained eightconnts, to six ol which the deferdants demurred, and the demurrer was allowed , [ on the two last counts an isiueol facts was taken. The plaintiffs gave in evidence the olllcial commnnicn . tion of the mayor to the Common Council, ill relation to the lire, and the proceeding thereon. ' They alio gave in evidence to show that an art of 1906, 1 uuih rizing the destruction of property to resist fires, hii passed in consequence of a resolution of the Common ! Council to apply to tho Legislature for an increase of , powers in relation to the extinguishment ol (Ires, to be r rested in the hoard ; that the act was drafted by the Coml mon Council, and the memorial for its passage was introduced into the Senate, as a petition to amend the city 1 charter.

His Honor left it to the jury to say whether unnecessary violence was usrd or not. Verdict for the defendant. (Inneral Sessions.

At the opening of the court, James T. Brady, Esq , counsel for accused, presented an affidavit signed by Ahern, in which he alleges that Wm. H. Robinson, of Utiayama, South America, was a material witness in his behalf, and therefore desired a postponement of the trial until he could either procure the attendance of witness, or obtain his testimony by commission. The District Attorney objected, aad the Court decided that the application was denied, as the defendant had hud sutticient time to obtain all evidence desired, he having hevn indicted in Novomber last. The Clerk then proceeded to empannel s jury, as follows : ? Jabez Brown was called, and stated that he had expressed an opinion nstothe guilt of accused?set aside.

The Jury having been empsnnelled and sworn, the District Attorney opened the case for the prosecution and stated the accused was indicted for embezzlement under the following s< ction of the statute of the State " Article 8th, section .89 ? If any ch rk or servant of any private person or of any copartnership (except apprentices and persons within the age of eighteen years,) ar if any officer, agent, clerk or servant of any incorporated company, shall embezzle, or convert to his own use or take, make way with, or secrete, with intent to embezzle or to convert to nia own use without the assent ol his master or employers, any money, goods, rights in action, or other valuable security or effects whatever belonging to any other person which shall have come into his possession, or under his c.are, by virtue of such employ mont or office, ho shnil, upon conviction, be punished far feloniously stealing propert. of the value of the articles so embezzled, taken or srcreted,or ol the value of any suai of money payable and due upon any right in action so em nezzieu " The Disthict Attornhs alleged that the accused wai indicted lor embezzling the moneys charged, as the clerk and servant of ItMilX Willi*, then clerk of the Common Council, which facts would be lully proved belore the jury. A stipulation that had been previously proposed by the delence, was then agreed unon by the counsel. The effect of this was that no evidence should be introduced on (he part of the prosecution relating to alleged defalcations or embezzlement of moneys paid the accused for other vessels than the barquus Nahellu and Johan Oeoige.
