Thk Ki.trrios ?We had almost forsot to state that the charter election takes'place to-day Oo and vote any way you please. Proorcss of Catholicity.?We directed the attention ot ottr readers, some time since, to the rxtr.iordinarv urosress ot the Human Catholic faith throughout tliis continent, a* well a? in Europe, and pointed out some of the causes which were contributing to the rapid and remarkable advance of that ancient church. A number of circumstances connected with the Church of St. Louis, in Buffalo, have recently transpired, and become the subject of a rath*r exciting controversy; an f as they cast additional licht on the policy and tncticsof the Catholic clergy, tlirv possess sufficient importance to occticv a place in our columns, and a share of public att'-ntion. I, < m- rh t Bishop Hughes?who is probably at nee the most expert tact ician and most popular and ini'uential prelate that ever governed a diocese?demanded some time since, in pursuance, it would appe r, ot a systematic plan, the delivery up by the trustees, of the Church of St. Louis, with all the pr<>| erty, pew rents, and collections, into Ins hands. The Bishop insisted tha' all church property,instead of being vested in trustees, in accordance with the spirit of our civil institutions and laws, and the usage heretofore, should be held by the church?that is,the clergv. The trustees of St. Louts Church refused to comply with this demand, on which the Bishop withdrew their pastor, the liev. Mr. Pax, and laid the congregation under his ban, until they should cry peccavi und returii to obedience. A statement to this effect was publish?d in some of the papers, which calle^ forth the following letter from Bishop Hurtles, in vVhich, as it will be perceived, he gives a sufficiently decided denial of the truth of the statements we have briefly recapitulated:? thr N". Y. Commercial Advertiser.] M??sns. Kpitoiis :? You published from the " Buffalo G-7.ett?," an article purporting to be n stati rnent of the difference between the ronpr eention of St. Louis's Church in that city and my self. It stated that I claimed to have " the property of the church vested in mv hands, and that the claim was resisted by the congregation." This is entirely untrue. I v< vrr advanced such a claim, and of course it could not Vi< refused It is stated that in conseque-ce ofthis refusal, 1 " called away the Rev. Alexander Pax, and left the congregation destitute '' This is equally untrue. On the cotrtrar.-, notdijng hut mv persuasion was able to prevail on *tn. to stav for the last eighteen months or two years, under t',0 ill treatment of a few worthless men who call themselves the congregation. It is stated that "'he congregation of St. Patrick's, in Jnftalo, have complied with mv requisition " This again is untrue. T te trustees and congregation of St. Patrick's will bear me witness that I never made any such requisition ' ndviscl them, as a means of putting an and to quarrels among themselves, to dispense with trustees, an 1 to avoid the rock on which St. Louis is now splitting. These are th" principal statements; and the honorable con, idence of the o litor of the Buffalo Gazette has bepn so lly abused by those who have employed his authority for statements which they knew to bo unfounded in truth Hp should demand proof of them, and if they cannot fumis'i it. to which I challenge them, he should publish their names, and vindicate his own. He lias been deceived. 1 attach no blameto him. If hisdeceivers can furnish no prrof that 1 ever made such a demand, I can furnish proof, in their own writing, that 1 ii-rer did. It is su-mised, says the statement, " that the Bishop has pone so far as to forbid anv priest in the neighboring parishes from i.erlorrping divine service in St. Louis's Church, until its connsntisBahall luilv ooamlv with his demands.'" Neither member of this "surmise" is true. I forbade only one clergyman, whose inexperience might have been taken advantage of by the same artifice which trifled so foully with the good laith of the editor of the Gazette. An 1 secondly, what are called my "demands" in the statement. never had an existence in reality. Surely the editor of the "Buffalo Oaxette" will leel a Rio w of yirtuous inlignation when ho discovers how much he has been imposed on The only difference h'dwpen the congregation of St. Louis anil myself i?. that its trustees have thought proper not to be governed hy the ecclesiastical discipline of the diocese, and expect me to supply them with priests who shall be governed by a different discipline, of which they shall be the authors. The congregatidn of that church are pious and exemplary Tatholics, to whom their holy faith is dearT than life. Even this may be said of a largo number of the trustees. H i' it sometimes happens that our trustees may lie hones' ar.d upright in their intentions, and yet. men'of simple understanding, and without education. In such cases, only let an enlightened, talented, intriguing and irreligiou-' min 1 g-t among them, and then, whatever he concoe'sin his infidel mind, he induces them under specious pretences, to adopt ; and then he gives out the depraved purposes of his own heart as the act of the hoard, and this ngai i asthe act of the congregation ! From the moment this arrives wo to the flock, nnd wo to the pastor, who n-c at once divided from each other,and yet kept together by sorh a link of iniquity. The pious an 1 amiable Mr. Pax wis not called away l>v me hti* 1 le" him at liberty to leave whenever he felt tha' h coul l s'and it no longer. It npppars that the time has arrived. 1 have no German pRstorto send in his place. But if I hot, i' woul 1 he with instructions to rent a barn, (i- up an altarin it, and administer the sacraments nfreli. gion wi'h that freedom frnm the restraints and guidance of unauthorized lavm-n, with which God made the ministers of hie church free?hu' which iinotto be enjoyed, it nnoears, in the church of St. Louis. The neighboring clergymen csitld not officiate in it without neglectir.?r their own congregations, which have tlie first claim on their ministry. Besides. I deem it mv duty now to forhid nil clergymen ol this diocese to otii. r jq?e in that church, until it shall he determined whether it is to tie governed by the ecclesiastical regulations of the diocese, or hy the "resolves" of its trustees. JOHN HUGHES, Bp of N. V. Nr.w Yoi*, April 4,1943. Her** tre"b periea of plain, fltt, palpable denials* of the statements that the Bishop insisted that the church property should be taken out of the hands of the trustees and vested snlrly in the church?that the Kev. Mr. Pax had been withdrawn from St. Louis, and that the Catholic ministry were interdieted from officiating in that church. In contradistinction to all this, we have the following curious matter-of-fact letter, which appears in one of the Buffalo papers:? ST. LOUIS' CHURC". To thf Editoki or thp. Bcffalo Daily Gazette:?

"Nfw Yost, Jan. 28th, 1843. To the R.ev. Alkxs Pas, raster ot the " Chorch ot St. Louia, Buffalo. "Grace and peace in Christ "Hkvkbkisk and orai? Bbothks?I received sometime ago, a copy ot certain proceedings, which were had in the name of the congregation ot which you are Pastor. Theae proceedings were had on account of my pastoral letter, and were partly in the spirit ol resistance to the laws which have lieen adopted for tho ecclesiastical government ef this diocese. ? * * 1 acknowle 'ged the receipt of thoso documents, hut allowed them sufficient time to reflect on the course which they had so inconsiderately shaped out for themselves * * . * * "I mentioned in my letter that I should have no dispute w ith the gentlemen who wrote, about words hut I intimated at the sume time, that if, in practice, they should attempt to hindcrthe pastor lrom obeying *he instructions of the statutes ; or ilthe congregation should refuseto be governed by the same, and should support truatees.or any other persons, in their attempts to govern the congregation, by any other rule than that of the statutes -, then there should be a separation of the Catholic ministry from the walls of St. Louis. I have now therefore to instruct you to read this letter to the congregation three times, without any comment.? The object of this reading is that the whole people shall iv" >un liuuiiuK is i tijiilieu in nun cniircu, pxcrpi what ii required in all othor churches in the diocese, and that if they allow themselves to be led away, on them, elves must he the responsibility. I wish them also to know that I enjoin upon you to execute, in thaseveral departments, what is required of every priest, in the statutes already referred to. This you will please to do so Ion? as the congregation or the persons who act as its trustees, or managers, shall permit you ; but if they shall attempt to put such obstacles as will deprive you of the power of complying with the statutes, then I enjoin upon you to withdraw from St. Louis church, bringing the sacred vessf Is and other things which are yours, and leaving that edifice entirely to the people who shall have rebelled against the regulations already referred to. * * I shall then appoint you to another congregation more deserving ol your ministry, nnd no priest shall have an. thority to officiate in the church of St. Louis, until the congregation shall have decided whether they are catbo. Hot or not. * * But I forbid you absolutely to remain one hour in the church after they shall have opposed any phrsicM hindrance to your complying with the statutes of the diocese. "I remain, "Vourob't servt in Christ, "Signed, flOHN, Bishop of N. Y." Regretting extremely, the necessity of thus troubling you, 1 remain, gentlemen, Yours, etc,, respectfully, WM. B. Lx COUTEULX. This is a meat singular expoti. The Bishop has most assuredly got within the horns of a most uncomfortable dilemma. It is quite clear that his letter in the Commercial conflicts more awkwardly and decidedly with those quoted by Mr Le Couteulx, than can be desirable by any gentleman who wishes to maintain a character for veracity. There is a contradiction which is quite inexplicable. Every one can see it, and it is therefore needless to point it out with more formality. The silliest piece ol the whole business is the manner in which the Bishop attempts to fasten the charge of infidelity on the trustees'who resisted his demand, and ventured to maintain their right to the possession of the property which they had themselves contributed ! Not the slightest proof appears in support of this charge. This is quite too much like the Inquisition for America and the nineteenth ucmuiy. 11 is nui, iiowever, we miisi say, ai an like Bishop Hughes, and we dare say he is already sorry for it. Now we think the best thing we can do in the premises is to give the Bishop a bit of advice. Let him, without any equivocation or timidity, come back to the original ground assumed in the " Pastoral Letter." It is, to say the least of it, and with becoming reverence we express the opinion,?very silly to assume this ground and then shilt about in the manner which the Bishop has exhibited. If the Catholic clergy can, agreeably to the spirit and letter of the laws and Constitution of this country, wre6t the church property from the hands of trustees and take possession of it themselves, why then let them set about the business at once, without any paltry equivocation. We ourselves doubt whether they can do so consistently with our laws, but they should test the matter at once. By doing so, the legality of the exercise of the ecclesiastical discipline of the Catholic Church, to the extent now claimed for it, will be fully examined. This is a most important question, and the sooner it is decided the better. The recent difficulty at New Orleans, between one of the Catholic Churches there and the spiritual authority, originated in a similar way to this disagreement in Buffalo. No doubt the movement of Bishop Hughes, and that of the Bishop of the diocese el New Orleans originate from a common source, probably at Ilome. For our part we have no objection in the world that the Catholic clergy should carry out this grand project, but they are bound to show their authority and right. Let them do this immediately. They will thus prevent many unpleasant broils, and, it we mayjudge from the pre sent instance, save themselves the disagreeable trouble of forgetting that regard to truth and candor, for which it is all important lor the ministers of religion to be uniformly characterised. International Copy-Right.?By a very important enactment, recently made by the British Parliament, in consequence of the exertions of Bulwer, Dickens, James, and other proprietors of British copy-rights, all the literary journals, such as the " New World," " Brother Jonathan," and their Extrus, are excluded Irom circulation in any part of the dominions ot England. The following is the act: ? 5 and 6 Vict. cap. 46. As Act to Amk<id thx Law of Copyright. Bee. 17. And be it enacted, Timt after the passing of this Act, it shall not lie law ful for any person not being the proprietor of the cop) right, or some person authorized by him, to impart into any part of the United Kingdom, or into any other part ol the British dominions for sale or hire, any printed hook, first comjosed, or written, or printed and published in any part ol the said United Kingdom, wherein there shall he copyright, and reprint, ed in any country or place whatsoever out of the British dominions ; and if any person, not being such proprietor or person authorized as aforesaid, shall import or bring, or cause to be imported or brought, for sale or hire, any such printed book into any part of the British dominions, contrary to the true intent and meaning' of this Act, or shall knowingly sell, publish, or expose to sale or lat to hire, or have in his possession for sale or hire, any such book, then every such book shall be forfeited, and shall bp seized by any officer of Customs or Eicise, and the same shall he destroyed by such officer; and every person so offending, being duly convicted thereof before two Justices of the Peace for the county or place in which such look shall be found, shall also for every such of of every copy of such book which he shall no import or cause to be imported into any part of the British dominioos, or shall knowingly sell, publish, or expose to sale, or let to hire, or shall cause to be sold, published or exposed to snle or let to hire, or shall have in his possession for sale or hire, contrary to the true intent and meaning of this Act, ftvt pounds to the use of such Officer of Customs or Excise, and the remainder ol the penalty to the u?e of the proprietor of the copyright in such hook. Tins act does not of course include newspapers, suclt aa the Neio York Hrrall. But it will have a terrible effect on the circulation of the literary mammoths, and will probably cut off 100,000 copies ol these publications every week. The Canadas were a very profitable field lor the " New World" and its colemporaries, and many copies were also forwarded to Croat Britain and the West Indies.?

It is said to be a very superior article in the line. Indeed, from the sublime imagery?the harmonious numbers?the pure sentiment?the classic taste which were so eminently characteristic of the young Captain's former highly successful poetic effort, we should not be surprised if the forthcoming production should be equal to Milton's "Paradise Lost," or the "Trionfo D'Amore," of Petrarch. However, we must patiently wait and see. Captain Robert is a young gentleman of great talent, not only as a poet, but also as a politician. We shall always be happy to do him justice. N. P. Willis, despising the venerable aphorism, is increasing the'number of irons he has in the fire. Besides editing the "Brother Jonathan," which he does in a sort of Jacob's coat, cut after the pattern of one of Bulwer's night gowns, he writes letters to the National Intelligencer, descriptive of the sights and smells of New York, from "Edgar House" to the "Five Points," which are rather interesting, (the 'letters we mean ) He has, also, now united himself as associate editor of the New Mirror, with his old coadjutor, General Morris. Willis has really a good deal of talent and tact. He possesses very respectable and practised powers of observation, and a great deal of the raw material in his mind, which might be eliminated and manufactured with a great deal of profit to himself, and a little advantage to the world. We therefore think rather well of him, and if he desirps to put another iron in the fire, we will put him in the way of doing it?that is, after one of those now on the coals shall have got cold.

Scene in tiie Pennsylvania Legislatuke.?The following is the description of a scene which took place in the Legislature of Pennsylvania, on Saturday, the8ih inst. It is exquisite. [From the Philadelphia Chronicle.] DuoitACKrui. Scene?At this moment a scuffle was witnessed on the lloor of the House, near the eastern fire place, between Mr. McGowan, a member of the House from the county of Philadelphia, and Mr. J. B. Bratton, editor of tho " State Capitol Gazette," which threatened to be of a serious character, throwing the whole House into confusion and uproar. Mr. McGowan went to Mr. Bratton with the" Gazette" in hi* hand, and demanded of him whether he was the author of the following article in that paper of yesterday, viz :? " You shall both hare office in tin Custom House if you vote for the Tyler Candidate for State Printer," as I, Porter Brawley sai l to McGowan and Bncon. " Agreed," was the response?and they did vote for bim sure enough. In our nest we shall hold up to the public gaza every man who has been bribed." Mr. Bratton replied that lie waa the author of tnn article. Mr. McGowan then cither (pit, or struck in hi* face, and Mr. B. rt?entod. Mr. McG. then took up a chair and struck B. over the head and bruised his head and face considerably. B. or ?oidp one else then wrested the chair out of Me.'? hand, and in a moment the cry in the hall was, " he (McG ) has got a knile !" Mr. B. then retreated heliinthe Speaker's chair, and was pursued by McG. with adirkin his (Vlc.'s) hand, to the other side of fh*? limine In flip rr.PAntimn tlip Snp;sk?-r hn<l mlU ti nn the Sergeantat-Arm* to keep order in the hall, and one of the assistants succeeded in arresting him in hi* pursuit, but not until he had made an overhanded thrust with his uirk at Mr. B., which struck him somewhere on tlie shoulder blade, with such violence as to bend the point of the weapon, in various directions, an inch and a half from the end. The dirk is four or si* inches long, with a heavy handle, light, sharp-pointed blade, and a scabbard. Mr. B. saw him draw it Irum his b >som and thought it was a pistol. Mr. McO. was then detained, whilst Mr. Bratton went out of the House, whence he proceeded to his residence. Fortunately lor t>oth parties, I believe he is not dangerously wounded, though lie is considerably bruised on the head and lace with the chair, and of course is cut and somewhat lacerated on the shoulder. Mr. McO. appeared terribly excited, and held up the dirk in his hand lor some time after the occurrence took place. It was then taken from him, end is now in the custody of a member ot the House. As soon as order had been restored in the hall, the Impeachment question was postponed, anil Mr. Deford offered a resolution, that a Select Committee be appointed to enquire into the facts and report the same to the House?which was agreed to?and the Speaker appointed Messrs Deford, Elwell, Morris, Hahn and Skinner, said Committee. Much excitement was produced, not only in the House, but all over town, by the occurrence. Nothing rise was talked of, scarcely, and the members seemed to hovo little relish for the transaction of sober business, though some was subsequently disposed of, wbieh I shall speak of directly. Shortly alter Mr. Batton had gone down town, one of the constables appeared at the iloor of the House, with a warrant for Mr. McGowan, and being at>o*t to enter, the scrgeant-at-arins shut the door, and would not permit him to come within the bur. But on being apprised of the fsct, Mr. Mrffawan went out voluntarily, and accompanied the officer to the office of the justice, where he was bound overto answi i the rhargpof Ronult and battery, nt the next lersionr, to tie hold hereon the 17th in?t. If the Mow from t he dii k had been received n dingle inch lower down, in all probability Mr. D. would have forfeited hit life for the publication.

Stale* vernal.?Specification 1 at alleged tlmt Commander MrKenrie, thpn commanding the United States brig Somerf, did, on the 1st December, 1842, on the high seas, in latitude 17 degteet, 34 minutes, 28 seconds,ami longitude 57 degrees, 67 minutes, 46 seconds, without (brm of law, wilfully, deliberately, and with malice aforethought, hung and caused to be hanged by the neck at the yard arm ot said brig, until he was dead, Philip Spencer, a midshipman then serving ou board, thereby violating the twenty first article of first section of the art of Congress entitled "An act for the better government of the Navy of the United States," approved April -23. 1800.

Ou the first charge nnd its specifications the Court finds, That the 1st specification is not proved. 'J hat the 2d specification is not proved. That the 3d specification is not proved. That the first charge is not proved. On the second charge und its specifications: That the 1st specification is not proved. That the 2d specification is not proved. That the 31 Specification is not proved. That the second charge is not proved. On the third charge and its specifications: That the 1st specification is not proved. That the 2d specification is not proved. That the 3.1 specification is not proved. That the third charge is not proved. That the fourth charge being waived by the Judge Advocate. and no testimony or evidence being ottered to sus tain it, the Comt took no action upon it. The specification of the 6th charge being deemed by the Judge Advocate too vague, was waived by him. No one having complained to the Department ot "specific illtreatment, it could not bo made more specific, as thu Department had no particular information. The Court therefore took no action. As far as evidence was offered under the 6th charge, the Court do find no proof of mistreatment of the crew of the Somers generally by Commander McKenzie, nor of individual maltre itment, and therefore find it not proved. The Court do therelore honorably acquit Commander Alexander S. McKenzie of all the charees and specifications preferred egaiust him by the Secretary ot the Navy. Theatricals and Musical.?Nagel and Dempster, according to the last accounts,were at Norfolk, giving concerts with accustomed success. The Seguins and Shrivall were at Savannah. Uackett is at Richmond, giving dramatic readings on Shakespeare. Miss Clarendon, the young lady who was brought out here under the auspices of Fark Benjamin, is in New Orleans, giving readings and recitations. Mrs. Sutton is at present engaged teaching music in this city. She has large elasBcs, we learn, composed of many of our fairest and most fashionable fair ones. Mrs. S. will, it is said, visit Philadelphia in a few weeks, for the purpose of getting up an operant the Chesnut street Theatre. Mr. Henry C. Timm is preparing for his grand concert next week. He will introduce his new piano forte, which is a most beautiful and ingenious instrument, and great curiosity has been excited in the musical world relative to its construction and effectiveness. Signor Clirehugh and th? Misses Cumming are preparing to visit Boston, where they will, we doubt not, be well received. Signor De Begnis will probably soon get up another concert, and sing "largo al factotum," in the character of Figaro. Itticj I? i. in tl.M n,f.? 11 nrtociKL rosy, w itty ami fascinating than ever. Bhe will pro. bably play a chort engagement at the Park or the Chatham, which is now becoming, it would seem, the fashionable theatre. Mr. and Mrs. Brougham will shortly appear at the Chatham, and are sure of a cordial greeting. Mr. Russell's popularity is increasing at an im mense ratio. His concerts in this city have been all densely crowded, and those in Brooklyn and Newark have been equally successful. He gives his last concert but one in this city, at Niblo's, on Wednesday evening next. He has also politely responded to the earnest request ol many of our moat resectable citizens, and will gratuitously contribute his invaluable aid at a great temperance celebration in the Tabernacle on Thursday evening next. Flioiit ok Boyer.?It is stated, on the authority of Capt. Leland, who has arrived at Holmes' Hole, that Boyer had lied from Hayti with three millions of treasure, and had reached Kingston, Jamaica. We believe this, for what else could be expected of him? It shows him, however, to have been equal to Jerome Bounaparte, who was once King of Westphalia. While playing leap frog in the court yard, he heard of the approach of the Russians. He immediately ran to the treasury, took what was in it, and lied. This display of foresight raised him in the estimation of the Westphalians, who did not believe him capable of any thing but playing leap frog. The act of Boyer will probably have tiie same efl'ect among the black philosophers of Hayti. We have received from our correspondent in Boston the following confirmatory intelligence of the flight of the black President:? [From tho Boston Courier, April!?.] Cnpt. Pope, of brig Nonpareil, at this port from Gonaives, 20th ult., slates that President Boyer had abdicated. Tie went on board n British frigate on the 13th, and sailed for Jamaica 15th- Commercial operations had been entirely suspended in the southern and western parts of ilte island by the revolutionary movements. The Patriots took possession of Gonaives on the 17th, but were enabled to hold it only conditionally. FnoM South Africa.?We have received the Cape Town Spectator of the 9th of last January. It appears that the English and the natives are stil| at variance. We make two extracts. A letter has just been received from Natal, dated 12ih inst., which states that G. Rudolf is in communication with Mocha, and that a plan lias been arranged for attacking Major Smith with a foree of 9<>0 men. It it. supposed, however, that this force will, at first, attack the. natives, for the purpose drawing the British troops lrom the shelter of their fortification. The Boers are said to be very short of gunpowder. News; from Fort Peddie, this morning, confirms our report of the slate of leeiing in Knfiiland, and the fact of a general preparation making lor war. Eno, Kama, and Kye liave officially warned the officials at Fort Peddie. Eno has sent messengers to Sandili to ask liiin what lie is about. It is said the cattle of many Boers are in Kafirland for safety. Coroner's Inquests.?A good deal of misapprehension seems to prevail respecting the manner in which the investigation before a Coroner's Jury should he conducted. The sole object of an inquest is to ascertain the came of the death of the person on whose body it is held. When the death has been the r> suit ot violence, poison, or any criminal act on the imrt of another patty, the Police magistrates are the proper and only legally authorized persons to institute enquiries for the purpose of discovering the guilty. It is most essential to the ends of justice that this distinction should be observed. Put our whole system of administering criminal justice ia lax, inefficient and defective. Farcical.?A bill to prevent and punish seduction has passed the House of Representatives of Pennsylvania. It punishes the crime by fine and imprison' mrnt, the former not to exceed $500, and the latter not lees tlian one nor more than three years. Why not oiler a bounty at once, instead of passing such a foolish bill as this 1 Seduction is as bad us rape, and should meet witli the saint punishment. City Intelligence. ] Kidnapping from the Alms House?About seven years since, a man nnmed Samuel Rowe, ot * Rankin county,Mississippi, obtained n mulatto boy, named "William Stewart, alias Jennings, Irom the j Alms House or Farms in this city, on the usual conditions, which were not do remove him out of the county ; and within about lour montlis since made application and succeeded in obtaining a boy named John Collins, and two small girls, named Lucy Cnrry and Mary Ann Florida. Instead of remaining in the county, he removed to his residence in Mississippi, and employed the children on his farm. The Mayor, being apprised ol thesp facts, selected .tj...i . i .1 i uiiiuci juiih iiuinwhiir 10 procecQ uirrr niiu ancm him. Hp left here on the 25th of February, and j succeeded not only in obtaining the children, but 1 also in arresting the peraon who had abducted them. When about 150 iniles above New Orleans, during the night,while the steamboat was taking in wood, liowe jumped from the steamboat into the j cane brakes and made his escape. The children were brought here in safety and lodged in the Alms House. The boy has grown to nearly a full age, , and would make an excellent servant for any body j desiring one. I Medical Witnesses.?The investigation in the case of the young female, Devine, who died in the j Third Avenue, presented the community with t another specimen of the melancholy appearance which medical men too often make when called to the witness' stand. The striking discrepancy of opinion?the confused character of the testimony? the entire want of clearness, were signally manifest. Medical gentlemen should devote more time und attention to medical jurisprudence, and thus save themselves from unpleasant exposure, and render efficient aid to the officers of justice, instead of involving the case in increased difficulty and doubt. Hard Times in Michigan ?A letter received in this city from Royal Oak, Oakland county, Michigan, states thus " It is the hardest times for cattle of allkinds here this winter, that I have witnessed ; there is no hay in the county to be had for money or any thing else. I heard a person say this morning, (March 31) that his horses and cattle must starve, and that he took the straw out of his beds to feed his cattle. There is now about two feet of snow on the ground, and cold as at any time in the month of J anuary. I have also heard of some of the farmers feeding their cattle with superfine flour. Prof.Wines' Hebrew Lecture Last Evening.? This gentleman delivered his first lecture upon the civil government of the Hebrews, last evening, at the Society Library. The lecture was very well attended. The subject of it was a review of the government, character, and manners of the leading na- i tions of antiquity, other than the Jewish, with the : design of showing that civil liberty, as we understand it, had no existence in any of them, lie ex- , amined the war laws, and Contrasted the institution i of slavery, as it existed in the Gentile nations, with what it was among the Jews. \ Sad News from the Independence.?We have seen a letter from on board the frigate Independence, , dated St. Pierres, Martinique, March 10,which states ' that the yellow fever had broken out among the officers and crew, and that Midshipman George Hun- ' terwasoneof its victims. The ship was to leave ! in ten days for Cuba i Sir Charles Bagot.?The Warspite hus been . ordered out to convey Sir Charles Bagot to England. His health has not improved, and he continues in a j precarious condition. , ?? , ftj- Nothing of Jacob Shipmaa yet. Chatham Theatre.?Mr. Forrest was greeted i with a most brilliant and enthusiastic audience last . evening. He never performed better, and Miss i Clifton fairly eclipsed herself in the beauty and ex- ' cellence of her acti ?g. They appear together this evening in the admired play of the "Lady of Ly- j ons," presenting to the lovers of the legitimate | drama un unusually rich and splendid treat. We 1 ure glad to witness the enthusiasm manifested towards this well-regulated establishment, since its : re-urgiuirziuiuii. iux. ? nurnt is unrriiiiiit'u 10 j>er- ] severe in his efforts towards the promotion of the l character of the gloiious drama in this city. None better qualified for the task. 1 i Q&- The sublime, moral and highly impressive specta- ] clc of the "Trial of Christ," should bo visited by all clas. 1 sea of society, w hatever may be their religious tenets ' No one can witness it without being impressed with the utmost awe. It is not only worthy of admiration as a work of art, but is deserving of infinite praise lor the sub- j lime moral it inculcates. This is positively the last week 1 it can be seen, and we would advise all persons to avail 1 themselves of the present opportunity. Pcale's Museum ' has changed hands. It opens next week under the ma- , nagement of Mr. H.Bennett, who conducted it with so i mnch ability last fall. 1 American Museum.?The crowds of visiters who Hock to this establishment fully attest its popularity. \Vhen i the numerous attractions are mentioned, it is not so much 1 a source of surprise. First, we have the "Fat Boy," who is a star of the greatest magnitude?we doubt if the Comet can "come it" stronger than he does. Thpn there is the humorous, eccentric, and highly original Winchell,who would raise a laugh under the ribs ol death, and makes even the "Fat Boy" shake his sides. Miss Darling, the bewitching and accomplished Enchantress, exercises a powerful spell over the hearts of the male part of the bu diHnca Cento, the graceful and charming uunseusc, nna the rich toned and magnificent Mslodeon.

Ludlum, famous for strong speeches and ens, and whose respectability every body well knows, and they have never dared to call upon the citizens of the Ward to sanction their unholy doing, and sure destruction of the great Whig party.
