' We should have added to these the enrious letters t of Colonel Munroe Kdwardson finance and roguery, J but are compelled to leave them out till to-morrow, i\ in conaequence of the want of room in our paper. jj The particulars of the horrible murder and die 0 extensive bank robbery are signs of the times, and ^ exhibit at once the recklessness of the fashionable 0 gimbler in this country, and the condition of the >' poor, half-starved classes of Europe, especially of England. * We refer our readers to the faeis themselves, as they stand in our paper. It is to be hoped that the o aff-tir in Columbus will lead to a lull exposure of J all the rascality at the south, and the detection li and conviction of all such men as Shelton, ' and Graves, who have bo disgraced the communi- Jties in which they lived. The half starved murderer, Mason, is but one of a thousand who are this * moment ready in England to do as he did, if need t be, lor a crust of bread or a bone to pick. He had !j juet arrived from there, leaving hundreds and hun- t dreds behind hint as hungry and as desoerate as he J has proved himself to be. li Read the particulars, and ponder thereon.

He acquired a very ?' enviable fame during the last war with Great Britain, ^ and particularly in that desperately fought battle tb between the Essex, and the Phoebe and Cherub, which lasted nearly two hours and a half. ai The following particulars of his last illness, death, w and burial, we take from the Philadelphia Ga- ^ zette :? ? The following extract of a letter from a relative of Com- ^ moilore Torter in Constantinople, contains some interest- 8 ing particulars of his Ins* illness ann death.

The morning of the day he was taken ill, he took a long ride in the carriage he hail lately purchased. 1 CI went with him. He appeared to suffer much pain, and I m urged him in vain to return home.

Invitations 5^ have been issued to all the diplomatic corps, and the Americans here for the funeral ceremonies, but as the weather *? is bad, I fear the attendance will be small. " Movusr, March 6th, 3 P. M. The funeral is over. It was attended by the attaches " of several legations and all the Americans resident in Pera. The ministers who were not present themselves or Kr who had not sent representatives, sent letters ol condo- ra lenre.

Me on/1 Mr? Partkomnpo on ol.l couple who moiled about three mile* Irom Harrisburg, ra As their son has been arrested on suspicion of havi ng committed the deed, the discovery of the real culprit heoomea doubly fortunate. It will be recollected, that on the day alter the murder, a suspicious character was ar-e-ted. He was taken before Justice Weiss, and after an -xumination was discharged lor lack of evidence. On he clothes of this person, spots were found, which apleared to have been blood, washed eut. Still the proofs u re too weak, anil so, after giving in his name as John ifason, he was released. Subsequently, he obtained from his justice a certificate of hi* discharge, upon the ground hat he might be again arrested on suspicion for the same Hence. This person left Harrisburg en Monday and ar ived at Heading, Pa. late in the afternoon. He there put p at the White Horse Tavern. About 6 a'clock, P. M , ne ol the workmen employed at the railroad depot, namd Robert McWhirter, who boarded ut the White Horse, oing home to supper, lound Mason sitting in the bathroom ehind the stove, and was struck with his excited and tin. a?y manner and appearance. He got into conversation nth him. All of a sudden, in the course of conversation, lason asked McW. if he had heard of the recent murder f "those old people at Harrisburg." He replied 'hat he isd heard it from a young man who had come from the cene. Hid you hear of a wood.chopper being arrested ar the oftenci ?" inquired M. The reply was in the afirmative. "I am the man," said Mason ; and then his ountenancein its changes betrayed the workings of his eelingsof apprehension. After a little more conversation Mason told McW. that te was in a great deal of trouble, begged him to sleep in he same room with him, and said that after they had reired he would " break his mind" to him! When they ;ot up in the room, and they went there without a light, dason stated that he had a paper which he wished McW. a read. It was the certificate of his previous discharge. dcW. turned to go down stairi, hut in descending heard foot-step behind him. He turned and beheld close at his ee!?, Mason, as pale as death, ard tremhling all over.? Why do you not remain till I get a light?" " Oh" said e " I am so fiightenul I cannot stay in the room alone." Lt the earnest solicitation of Masmi, McW.slept with im, the foimer averring that he was laboring under such readfnl feelings that he dare not sleep alone.

McWhirter gave the required pledge, and Mason ?en made the following Coxfsssion or thic Muhder.?He was after work. He rrived at Philadelphia fram Ireland in July last, and had een wandering about the country|ever since. When in [arrishurg he heard that this old couplt had laid up, vm their sales of marketing, quite a large sum of money > support them, and that they had it in the house in speie. He was in a state of iitter destitution, and having othing to do, nnd no prospect of work, he conceived the Ian of murdering the couple alluded to, in order to oblin their wealth. He began by lurking about the premiss to ascertain when the old people were alone. On the torning of Friday he watched until he saw the son leave ir market, when he sneaked up cautiously towards the ouse. As he looked in the door, he saw the aged couple tting at a table, apon which were spread a number of nail pieces of money The old lady was sitting at on* nd sewing, with her spectacles on hernosa. The old entleman was sitting at the other end, apparently enaged in examining and counting the coin. Fired by the xhibitionof this money, which brought into vivid disnctness the picture of his own beggary, he retreated to n adjacent wood pile, and selecting from it an oak atick bout a yard long, and knotty at the end.returned atealthly to the house. He first struck the old lady a tremen. ous blow upon the head fiom behind,completelymashing i her skull, and exposing the hraiu. The sudden blow araly/ed with fear aDd astonishment her husband, be>rc recovering from which he received from Maaon, a low also that gave him an awful gash upon the forehead, om out of which gushed a torrent ofblood. This would iem to have finished the dreadful deed, but the old man as athletic, and though blinded by his own gore, and jonized with the pain, he attempted to grapple with his imilant. Another aud (another blow followed, some of hich struck the table and broke the corner ofit off. The d lady here made an outcry, it was her death-shriek, and ie murderer alarmed, aimed another blow at her, which issed her head, but dashed the spectacles from her face, id broke them,when with a gurgling groan, the dropped id expired. The old man now grasped lhe|v illain, in a moii nt of returning consciousness, by the leg. Another low with the bludgeon, which by this time was covered oth blood and brains, and the gray hairs of the murdered otiple, completed the fiendish work, and all was quiet, lason now hastily snatched up the money from the table, nil tfl tKo ilrau-oro Uo aam Ann jlnnnsun pen with a key in it?probably the one from which the oin upon the table had been taken. From this drawer < took acme relief notes, an-* some silver. Just as he was bout to close this drawer, he discovered a little box in He broke it open, and found it tull of gold. He seized ne gold piece, but just at that moment the old man, turn, ig over in his blood, began to groan. Tha murderer lieante alarmed. At the same instant, he thought he heard pproaching footsteps?possibly the son returning home. . panic seized him-there lay the gold before him?he anted it?he could readily clutch it?but his fingers emed paralyzed?his brain bewildered?and giving way > an instinctive sense of safety, he rushed out ol the bacK tor of the house, leaving his bloodi stick behind him, id made will all possible speed for the woods. He next ent to the river, aud there washed the stains of blood om his clothes. That night he slept in a barn. On exnining the money lie had taken, he found that the whole im .lid not exceed twenty dollars. The next day he as arrested and discharged, as above stated?proceeding Reading?where our narrative finds himThe Capture.? Mr W'hirter was astounded at this hor. ble narration, and regretted that he had promised not to dray him, and to aid in his escape. When that pro. ise was given, he had no idaa that the crime iferred to was the awful one of murder, and is first impulse was to have Mason arrested. But e word of an Irishman he thought should be hold sa ed, and much against his better feelings, he reluctantly ade arrangements ts "get him out of Reading"?the [tent of his promise. On Tuesday morning, he accominied Mason tothe Philadelphia cars and saw him off. e then went to his work. In about half an hour.ha intmi need and told his fellow workmen the whole atliir. e told it also to the foreman of the Depot, the agent of ie Railroad Company, and one of the contractors, hese three gentlemen informed the police. On the oath ' Me W. a warrant was issued, and Mr. Stilwcll was depuid bv the Justice to pursne the murderer. On Wednesday evening, S. and McW. arrived in l*hilaplphia in pursuit. They went before Recorder Vaux. 'he Recorder issued a warrant fer the arrest ol Mason? nt lor Col. J K. Murphy?and wa? the whole of that iglit and the hext day, Thursday, engaged in hunting l>the offender. On Thursday afternoon, .Murphy traced lasonto the p cket shin Monongahela, near Walnut reet wharf, which vessel leaves for Liverpool next Monly. Mason arrived here on Tuesday, and the same rening made application to the master of the Mononga-la for a passage to Europe. He had not enough money pay his passage, and the captain did not like hii appearice or conduct, and sent him away. The second mate inks be recollects that Mason called again on board the ip on Wednrsday, and again on Thursday- On that afrnoon Mason returned to the ship, and manifested the eatest anxiety to get to Europe. He oft-red the chief ate a Ave dollar gold piece and two dollars in silver to >? him siway in the hold and keep him concealed, until onday when the vessel would sail. According to ;reement, the mate promised to conceal him, took his oney and then went to seek fer officer Murphy. He ent to the Mayor's, and told his story. This was about isk. Fea'ful that Muson might escape, and not knowg where to find Murphy, His Honor despatched Captain oung.ol the Night Police, and one or two other officers the ship. Mason was brought to the City Lock-up. esterday morning he wa? brought belore the Recorder, ho heard the evidence of Still well and McWhirter, had lason put in irons, and placed in the charge of Mr. Stillell, to tie conveyed to Harritburg for trial. Mason appears to he ahont 36 or 38 years of age. He is f small stature, with an ordinary, rather feeble, expres. on of conntenance, a wild, maniac-looking eye, and is videntlv a man accustomed only to the lowest associaons. His clothing was very coarse and poor, and his hole appearance common and dirty. The stains upon is clothes were pronounced by McWhirter, who lias ern a bleeder in England (or ii years, to have been ccHiioned by blood. About fit) have lieen traced to his Dssession.

You must know that last night Fowler, the Phrenologist from New York, gave a lecture on his favorite science, which he illustrated through a magnetic subject (a yellow boy) to the satisfaction of some and the contirined disbelief of others. He also told us some rather tough stories, or as the saying is here, "he stretched his blanket rather too large." Fowler is a very bad lecturer as regards delivery, and I think his lectures would be better attended if he were a better lecturer. While we were all listening to this favorite or fashionable science, a game of rather a high character was going on in this place. On the return of Mr. Wm. Morton from the lecture, he heard a noise as he proceeded along the street; lie listened and listened again, until he was convinced it was in the Bank of the Western Insurance and Trust Company. Having a lady with tlim, he disposed of her as soon as possible, and procured help, got into the Bank, followed the noise until they come to the vault?on opening which, they there found Mr. Robt. B. Murdoch, Sec'y* and Mr. Allen Bass, Teller. The statement of these gentlemen runs thus:?As they were balancing or settling up their cash account last night, (by the bye rather late hours to be balancing a Bank's cash, 7 o'clock, P. M ) they perceived the bank door open; Mr.Bass took the candle andjlocked the door,immediately on returning to the counter the candle was knocked out of his hand, and he and Mr. Murdoch were both knocked down; the'roat collar of one of the gentlemen was cut through?in mistake, no doubt, for his throat. From the threats of the assassins these gentlemen were induced to hold their tongues until they were secut tu 111 uir vnuii i?ir. iviuruucii, aner neing locaeo up and while in the vault, I suppose fueling so thankful for his preservation, could not help exclaiming to his comrade in trouble, "What gentlemen they were." I suppose because they saved his life, but, poor fellow, this morning he looks more like one dead than living. This morning immediately the robbery became known, volunteers were called out, (there being noefficient civil officers, if any, besides our Mayor, Moses, of the firm of Hall <fc Moses,! who, by the by, was much excited) and scattered through ull the town, searching houses, holes, cracks and corners. While this was going on, Mr- Mitchell magnetised a boy, who in that state, said the money was all in town, that it would be found to-day, and that more than one person was concerned in the robbery. He also said that one man would be taken today, and the others in a week at farthest. After searching for some time, the officers entered the house of a Mr. T. C McKeen, who, on seeing them, in a very friendly, ofl hand manner, said, "well, I suppose you want to search my house? here are the keys and I have no objection, provided you don't disturb my clothes and upset them too much." They searched, McKeen going through the operation with them, and affording all the assistance he could, until they commenced searching a large box containing a plant. The earth wasdug up and there was found money to a considerable extent. On looking round for McKeen he was "non est inventus"? but was immediately pursued, overtaken and made prisoner. He was taken to a grog shop, and shoe-makers', all in one. where he was partially examined, the volunteers keeping guard. He was then brought out, headed by the Mayor, and as he proceeded to the markethouse,he exclaimed?" Now, gentlemen, I am the prisoner." On arriving at the market house, he sent forjudge Colquitt and Judge Willbume, for his counsel. They came. They are talented men, and the opinion now pre\ ailing is, that McKeen will.turn State's evidence, in order to save himself. T. C. McKeen was formerly a lawyer in this place, in partnership, as \ understand, with a gentleman of some repute in this place. McK. at that time stood very high in the estimation of the community generally. He is a fine looking man, about 5 feet 8 inches high, well proportioned, a fine round robust countenance, wun ruuuycneeKb, nne niacK natr.ana wears gold specs; his present and second wi'.e he ran away with; she is the daughter ol a respectable and wealthy planter in Alabama?she is a very fine ladv, I understand?aminble, accomplished, &c.

As I expect to leave here soon, I am afraid I shall not be able to keep you well informed of the remainder of the proceedings?if I can I will. I am anxious your paper should contain the first report of this af fair. The Herald is here read the first of all, even before letters. No body seems satisfied until they have read the Herald.

We have had the greatest excitement that I have ever known here, and you know that we are subject to excitements, as that is all that keeps us alive in the summer. The Western Insurance and Trust Company (Shylock), on Friday night between eight and nine o'clock, was robbed of about $60 000. Murdoch and Allen Bass went into the Bank for the purpose of counting the money. They opened the vault, and whilst in the vault Bass thought he heard some person at the door; he went to the door, saw no one, locked it, and went back again into the vault; he held the candle in his hand, standing with his back towards the door, in an instant himself and Murdoch were grabbed by some persons, and the light put nut. Bass commenced making a noise, they told them that if they made any noise; they would at once kill them, whilst each had his man by the throat. Some one or two more were picking up the funds indiscriminately in the vnult. After they had (got all they wanted, they locked Bass and Murdoch in the vault, and* told them if they made any noise before they (the robbers) got out of the house, that they would go back and put their lights out. They remained in the vault about three hours before they could make themselves be heard. The next morning the excitement comm need. No one knew anything about it; every man had his own conjee- i tures; no one knew where togo nor what todo. The company at once offered a reward of $5,000. Nearly every person suspected the gamblers, of whom we now have a goodly number After a while there was a negro who said be saw Tlios C. McKeen about that time in the evening, coming from towards the bank with something under Ins arm, and went into his room adjoining the Oglethorp, in the wing on Randolph street. Search was immediately made there, and in a lew minutes they found $4,300 in the bottom of a flower pot, the flower was growing ii- ..... 1....i? ? ?i iiiinj. nc won ir&tvrn uii?5 UUBiuujr by A. K.

After a while he intimated that if the l-shylock would give their obligations not to prosecute him, give him ?1000, and carry him one hundred miles from here, he would tell them where the money was. The proposition was made to thein, they at once complied with it, loving money better than their souls?and Tom started on his way rejoicing, accompanied by Ayer and Robinson.. Tom was to tell them where the money was alter they had left here. As soon as the citizens had found out what was done, every voice was raised againsttthat course, and it was proposed at once to go after them. In a few hours after Ayer came back, as lie said, to ascertain the feelings of the community, leaving Tom and Robinson in the wood. Ayer soon found out that it would not be safe for him unless he brought McKeen back. Rehire Tom was brought back, he told where the money was, gave an order to Ayer on J. Ii. Lewis (L ing) to "give up the bag of money." Lang new nothing about it. Tom was brought back and put in jail We were all well satisfied in our minds, that Ayer and Robinson knew more about it than the rest of us; the excitement was turning against them.

Latest of thk Fukshets?Loss of Lives.?It appears by the latest accounts that the waters were subsiding, and that the sufferers were beginning to repair damages done. We regret to state, however, that several lives have bees lost. In Lowell, where the mills were compelled to run "short time," all was nearly right again. The Connecticut, and indeed all the rivers have fallen back to their proper length and breadth. It is estimated that the aggregate loss sustained will reach $1,000,000 in amount. The damage done to the Concord, N. H. Railroad alone was upwards of $40,000. [From the Buffalo Gazette, April 19.] We learn from Tonawanda, that the flood in the Creek has been attended with disastrous consequences. A serious breach was made in the Canal, below the Tonawanda dam and between it and the Cuard Lock. The Creek made a clean sweep, and all the earth between the end of the Canal Bridge over Ellicott Creek and the Lock is washed away. The south end of the Bridge of the Buffalo and Niagara Falls Rail Road is carried away. The Canal Bridge is also gone?demolishing a building which stood in its course. The Creek no longer runs over the dam, but has deserted its old channel and formed anew one through the neck of land between the Canal and Niagara River, known as Foose Island?about an acre of which has been washed away. The dyking on the Creek, above the bridges, has nil been carried away. This is the most disastrous flood that has occurred on the Tonawanda tor yearp. Mr. Kibler's building, however, had been carried off. The front part of it was used for the Post office and a store by Mr. K. and the rear for a dwelling. The breach in the Canal, though serious, we learn will be repaired in season for the opening of navigation. The efficient buperintendant, and the force at his command, will commence operations as soon U * ttB IIIC WlllCr BUUB1UCB. [Correspondence of the Herald.1 Seneca Falus, March 19th, > Quarter-past 11, P.

On the evening of the 17th it commenced raining, and continued unabated until last evening, which, together with the immense body of snow on the banks of the river and the fields adjacent, contributed to swell the stream at this place to an uncommon heijjhth.and spread alarm and fearful apptehensions in its train. The new bridge, recently erected in the upper put of this village, was carried away, togather with the sash and blind factory ol E. Partridge. The tannery of A. P. Tillman is also very much injured, together with a large quantity of leather which was on hand. The extensive flouring mills of A. S. and 1). \V. I)ey are very much damaged, and it is fearful they will be lost. The grift mill of S. S. Gould is undermined by the force of the water, and is expected to tall every minute. We hear that it has also done immense damage at Waterloo. Our village presents a scene of the most heart-rending desolation.

Nauvoo flourishing?the lltrahl?a Flourish of Chivairy?[fives ami Doctor*?a Pleasant Party?a (ientile ] Correspondent?Mutters and Hiing* at Nauvoo. James Gordon Bennett, Esq.? Dear Sir? After a protracted silence, 1 again sit down to relate to you some of the on ditt of this great and flourishing City of the Saints, yet in embryo, but destined soon to be the great emporium of the West ia religion, literature, morals, government, learning and accomplishments, despite the opposition of newspaper penny-a-liners and pulpit declaimed, who pervert truth and traduce the innocent. I see by an article published in the Times and Seasons, over the signature of Joseph Smith, tha1 some exceptions are taken to some publications of yours in the Herald: and if you should think the gauntlet thrown, and as a brave Knight bound to take it up, we shall have the two great Napoleons, one of the East, and the other of the West?one on the shore of (he Slississinni. and the other on the At Untie, clothed in armour, with lances poised, battling for their respective empires, and if our Western champion's pen is as mighty as his cloq lence on the stand, you will have no mean competitor. I therefore would advise a close husbandry of your resources, as there will be blows to receive as well as to give, though all in good feeling, for I know he loves you for your candor and independence ; butagTeat mind seeks greatness when it wants an object upon which it may bestow its energies?although the mighty combat mav not cause rivers of blood to flow and the plains to be bleached with human bones?although the earth may not rock to and fro like a drunken man, and the Eagle descend from her loftv seat and flap her wings upon the tomb of libery, still we deem our cause of sufficient importance to declare boldly for our champion, and for whose success and immortal honor we pledge our lives and our Bacred honors. A very important trial took place last week before his Honor the Mayor. Dana vs. Brink, a physician ?an action of assumpsit for damages done the plaintiff by Brink the defendant, by maltreating the plaintiff's wife in the character of a physician. The case occupied the time of the court for two days. Several learned and skilful M. D.'s were examined, and edified the court a whole day in illustrating the principles and science of Toxicology. Joseph Smith, our worthy Mayor, presided with great dignity and decorum, and also manifested a considerable knowledge of law in deciding promptly and correctly on rules.of evidence. Able arguments were made by the Attorneys Skinner and Emmans for plaintiffs; Mar and Rigdon for defendant. The case not yet decided. I had the pleasure, a short time since, of looking in on a very pleasant party of young ladies and gentlemen assembled at the houee of Professor Rigdon. A choice collection of beautiful ladies graced the party with their presence, who disseminated their smiles and blandishments with nearly as much effect upon the wights present as does the immortal Cupid himself when he wings the best barbed arrow from his quiver. The walls resounded and reverberated with the "melodious notes of Bong, and joy and gladness reigned supreme. The venerable host stood in the centre doer with his silver locks streaming over his temples, his Grecian countenance light ed up and beaming with peace and happiness at the animated scene around him. The Miss R 'a and the Miss I 's sang enchantingly. Miss M looked still more prepossessing in convalesence: the accomplished MissH n, with the step of a fawn and an eye like the gazelle, for the first time appeared, and added a rich gem to the beauty and fashion of Nauvoo. Miss B looked as charming as usual; all appeared to enjoy themselves and seemed to appreciate the rich blessings of Bocial enjoyment,with a due regard to the high moral and intellectual condition of mankind. " A gentile correspondent in the city of Nauvoo." " Who is itl" ask the ladies; one says it is Mr. A , another Mr. B., and so on through the alphabet. Now I will give them a sign whereby they may know. As people seek for a sign in these last days, the first lady who meets me, and says, " As Nathan said unto David, thou art the man," shall have the admission by the receipt of a pair of gloves; but she must be enjoined to silence, and if the hand is not asked in return, why then she will have the gloves in fee simple; and if asked and refused, why then your humble servant will sigh and moan like Homee, " Oh, was 1 but a glove, and on that hand, that I might touch that cheek, (tec." Our Prophet Joseph Smith has obtained his freedom from the shackels of Missouri, which were illegally imposed upon him, and he now stands redeemed and disenthralled by the genius of our federal institutions. The charter of our city has been attacked by the legislature of the State, |but the good sense of that body frowned it down at once. So we go, overcoming all opposition, and rising triumphant over ajl religious prejudices, bigotry, and intoleration. With the bible for a standard, that mighty engine of truth, wielded with dexterity and power, this church is peering her head above the religious horizon, soon to set in the very zenith, and from her meridian height dart forth ner refulgent rays to the uttermost bounds of the earth. The leader, with a gigantic mind, and indomitable courage, wraps himself in the ample folds of the constitution, and bids defiance to the snarling curs that growl and grind their teeth. Foe after foe falls vanquished at his feet, while he bestows upon them one single look of tender pity, and a forced smile at thetr folly and temerity.. A few days since, he delivered a speech in the City Council on the constitution, which would have done credit to the "God-like Dan" himself. I do not intend to frighten you from the coming contest, but as a friend only advise you of facts, so that you may use the precaution of a skilful general who arranges his army according to the forces which he is to meet. Our winter has been very severe, with good sleighing nearly all winter, and the Mississippi ice-bound since November till the present time. Our city is improving very fa6t, considering the inclement season. Our enterprising townsman, Dr. R. D. Foster, has a row of buildings goin^ up, and the foundation of a large hotel near the Temple. We expect a large accession to our nonulation on the ooenimr of the snrinir. \Ve expect this to be a place of general resort lor travellers through the summer season, it being; a place which excites more curiosity than any other in the west. Our accommodations will be good, and it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Yours, A Gemtilb. ;Superlor Court. Present Judge Vanderpoel. April 29.?Shindy va. Skidmore ft at.?Thia was an action of treapasa on the caae for unlawfully entering the Iilaintiff's premise*, and fornn excessive levy under a landoril's warrant. Damages (1000. The plaintiff was tenant ot a house in SpriDg street, to a person of the name of Stevens. The latter hud mortgaged the premises, and a bill was filed to foreclose the mortgage, and undpr the bill the plaintiff was appointed receiver. The defendant applied to plaintiff (as is usual in such cases) to produce his receipts, hut the plaintiff refused. The defendant then made an affidavit of two quar. ter's rent being due, $260, upon which he issued a land, lord's warrant, and seized for that amount. It appeared that some arrangement was entered into between plaintiff and Stevens, by which the rent was reduced, and that the plaintiff only owed $125. The defence was a tender of amends, and that defendant was justified in levying in consequence of the refusal of plaintiff to produce ait receipt*. Judge VaisDcaroKL charged the Jury in substance as follows:? Gentlemen?'This is an action oi trespass on the case; the plaintiff is a German grocer, and the defendant is a member of the legal profession. It appears from the testimony that plaintiff was a tenant of Stevens', and that the control of his (Stevens') property was taken from him by defendant as a receiver, nnder an order of the Court of ri.. ? .,. 1- ... . 1. .u ........ .(?h. trial to show that he win improperly appointed; hut, gentlemen, in my opinion, this fact hainot been estoblisned. Counsel always open their case as fully and as strongly as they can, but whether he wna in point of lact receiver, and the manner in which he wa? appointed a? far a* regards hi? olftce, for all purposes of thia action, yeu mutt presume that he got it fairly- It would be doing great injustice to Mr. Skidmoroto say that he had resorted to unfair means to have himself appointed, but if he transcends his office, he is equally amenable as any other person. You are not, therefore, to believe that he|obtained it by any unfairness, or that he stands before you as unlawfully appointed by that Court. Oentlemen, he was appointed some time in February last. After which, it stems that he had applied to plaintiff for hit receipts; that plaintiff* replied he would not show them, and told him it was none of his busiaess. Oentlemen, when you come to measure the damages, this it a circumstance whlali you are not to overlook. You must look at the conduct of both parties, and weigh the conduct of one against the other; it <$oes not appear that the receiver applied any further. He then makes an affidavit! and swears that there are two quarters rent due, upon which he levoyed a landlord's warrant, and put it into the hands or an officer and leveved on the plaintiffs goods ; but it does not appear that housed any unnecessary violence or oppression, or that he removed the goods.
