Yours, &c. NED. in connection with tins letter, we have recently learned ?he following scheme as got up on the last trial:?Mr. Emmett, one of the counselor Edwards, withdrew from participation in the last trial, and nn mediately afterwards was subprpnaed as a witness for the - < lence He attended, and upon enquiry from co'iusei as to what was desired or what knowledge he possessed ol benefit to the accused, he was intoimed that as he had been in the habit ot receiving letters Irom the friends of Edwards in New Orleans, directed to his care, they desired him to testily to the reception of a letter that was shown hurt directed to Edwards, and purporting to be from a gentleman ot the bar of New Orleans, contain in? me post mara 01 tnai cny ,vir. Linmni examined the letter, hut remembering that all the letters receiver! by him for Edwards had been enclosed in an envelope,and that Edward's letters therefore contained no po3t mark, he so informed counsel and was not called as a witness. Notwithstanding this failure to accomplish what was desired by the letter, and for the purpose of endeavoring to satisfy the court and iurv, that Recorder Vaux was not a clear judge of the handwriting ol Edwards, he was called to the witne-s stand and the letter purporting to he from New Orleans, and another in the handwriting of" Edwards, were handed hirn tor examination with the sgtiatures turned over. He scrutinized them close'v. and decided that one was certainly written by Edwards, anrl that he thought the other was a'so, but appeared cramped and disguised. After giving this opinion he was requested to look at the back ol the letter which he thought was written in the disguised hand of Edwards, when to his astonishment lie found that it was addressed to Edwards Inmielf, to the care of Mr. Emmett, and dated at New Orleans, with a post mark >-inee his arrest for forgery' lie felt a little chagrined and concluded within himself as he stepped troni the witness stand that be had been too positive in thus testifying to the New Orleans letter.

See first page. The Crisis of the next Presidency?Quarrels AND DISORGANIZATION IN THE DEMOCRATIC FAMII.Y.? The nomination by the legislative caucus at Albany of Mr. VnnBuren for the next Presidency, and the recommendation to hold the Conveniion in November next at Baltimore, have created a prodigious ferment throughout the whole length, breadth and liiitMirpc ui ijic uciitutiailt cicmcuis au uyci iuc country. We believe that the crisis is bow at hand?that the final triumph of Mr. Van Buren or that of Mr. Clay will depend very much on the movements that may be made in this city before the 12:h of May. Accordingly the "democracie" have called a meeting of the "old men" to-night at Tammany Hall, to consider and determine what is to be done?whether they will carry out the purposes of the legislative caucus by a mass meeting at Tammany Hall, and declare for a Convention in November, or.whether they will give way to the opposition of the "democracie" that are in favor of Calhoun, Tyler, and Cass, who want a Convention in May, 1844. The following is the call:? DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICAN GENERAL COMMITTEE. (SJ- A Special Meeting ot the Democratic Republican Gonoral Committee will take place at Tammany Hall on MONDAY EVENING, 24th inst. ("to-night] at half past 7 o'clock. By order, A. HATFIELD, Chairman, Gro H. IYrskr, J Secretaries. Dan l. E. Delatan, \ It is generally understood that this Committee is convened forthe purpose of proposing a mass meeting to counteract that portion of the " democracie" who are in favor of a May Convention and of Mr. Calhoun and Captain Tyler. If the movement of the legislative caucus is to succeed, the whole "democracie" must at once take high ground in favor of Mr. Van Buren and the November Convention.? They cannot recede. They must either march forward boldly to their object, or Mr. Van Buren is forever pnt down and annihilated. In this position of things it is highly important for the friends of Tyler, Calhoun, and the other candidates, to decide on their policy, and to take their position at once. This is the very crisis of their fortunes. If the Albany movement succeed, then is Captain Tyler cut off, at once and Urever, from ( any hope or any chance. Mr. Calhoun is not in so c i bad a position, because the triumph of Mr. Van Bu- c I ren in carrying the party now, will only postpone U . ? . ; 11 1Q1Q iii9wiiauv>co (in iciu In such an important crisis, it becomes an inter- J esting question what these opposing elements mean to do in regard to the Albany nomination. The ioilowing extracts from the several organs of Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Tyler, at Washington, will indicate their purposes:? [From the Washington Spectator?Calhoun ] Psohablic Disorganization or thi Democratic Tarty? Who will be responsible for it ??We honestly confess that it is with sincere regret we are called upon to publish the resolutions adopted by some of the democratic members ot the legislature of the State of New York at a caucus lu-ld in Albany some hours al ter the adjeurnment of that body Wo say some?for whether they were adopted by five, or ten, or twenty, or a bare majority. we have no means of finding out. [We believe the whole number signed it.1 ??? ? The first two of the resolutions arc of the most disorganizing tendency. and in open defiance of the expressed opinion o( ten States in regard to the mode and time of holding the National Convention. It rides rough-shod over the democracy of the City of New York. Will they submit to lie thus dictated to and cheated out of their rights by a caucus composed ofthcir own treacherous delegates l [Humbug] If the State ot New York were in reality desirous of making an issue with the majority of her sister States, we should he surprised.land should trulv regret such a step , but it is not so. The mass of the democracy of the Empire State are not disorganisers, or ready to be dictated to by a few wire pullers nt Albany. The primary meetings and assemblages of her democracy will prove this, ere many day s have passed. Again, we repeat, the democracy of New York are not responsible for these re solutions, which are not the expression of the people.? They are for harmony, and fair, just dealing. They will go for a convention in which the delegates to represent the State shall come from the people direct, and held at the usual time, which is May, 1844. This caucus says nothing about the tarifi; not one word ; they are as silent as the grave upon a subject so deeply interesting to the South, the West, and the North ? to the agricultnral, mercantile, and mechanical interests of the conntry ; the Question ol Questions to the city of New York herself, whose very existence depends upon the freedom of hpr trade. If a few disorganizing spirits in the States of New York nr Virginia choose to cut loose from the great body of the Democratic party in the Union, and call and hold a con- ' vention next week or next November, let them d? so; and | upon their heads will remain the odium;and responsibility of the proceedings. Thank God, they cannot srcrifice tnc principles 01 mepariy, or ueieai im? cauumaiw wuu will bp nominated by the people*! convention at the mual time in May, 1844. The wont they can do, by running a candidate, (should they adhere to a November nomination.) it to throw the election into the Hou?c of Representaiivea, when the candidate nominated in 1944 would be elected. [From the Madi?onian?Tyler ] Fourth Mond?t or November ? We truat every Democratic paper in the Union will promptly expre?a it* opinion as to the timp when the Nationel Convention should be held. [Weexpreas our opinion in favor of both November and May?the more, the merrier?Ed. Hit aid.] Thp nubject ia of vast importance. A general expreaaion ol opinion in relation to the time likely to tie preferred by the party, would, perhapa, avert much difficulty, if not Pinaster. Six week* might aulhceto know the preference of the party. Tar aln*>y Caucus?Wehavemany letter! from the region round about Albany, which concur in the opinion that the decinion of the recent Legislative Caucu* may not be confirmed by the People. Some think thp People will proceed to elect Delegate* to the National Convention , themselves, and by districts. to assemble in Baltimore late in May, and to vote per capita. From these very important extracts, taken from the central organs of the Calhoun party, as well as the "guard" of Captain Tyler, it I would seem that an issue is at once to be taken before the people, on the time and mode | el holding the convention In this important crisis, the next Presidency now star Js on the weight of a 1 feather. If the friends of Mr. Van Buren recede 1 from their ground, they are destroyed for ever. 1 They must take the chances of amass meeting at 1 Tammany Hall, or give up at once. It is very 1 evident that the movement is of the very highest importance to the country?and every new step must be singularly attractive. Mr. Clay's prospects begin to brighten up every day. Don't despair, Harry. Late from Havana.?News to the 8th inst. has been received at New Orleans. The negro insurrection in the districts of Carderas and Cimarrones has been completely quelled. Highty of the ringleaders (who are stated all to belong to the Luciimi tribe,) were shot on the 2d inst. and forty-five were whipped on theirrespeetive plan* tations.

Stiak to :our types, Conner, for the future; trust to neither friends lor politicians; you have been rolled by the one, and hummgged by the other. Clerk to the Board of Assistants.?Doctor Bartols, or ;ome such other name. Politics?Alderman Waterman's >rother-in-law. Claims?Alderman Waterman's brothern-law.

Comptroller?This office is not settled upon, and it rests >etween Mr. Jeremiah and the last democratic incumbent Alfred A. Smith. Smith will probably be the successful ;andidate, as he has Mayor Morris and several other dia:ingiiished members of the party using their exertions in his behalf. These are all the names that we can place on the " red slate" at present. The Caucus held three sessions, and went through a great deal of work. At he close they passed a unanimous vote of eternal se:recy and everlasting mystery over all these doings, rhey meet again this week to proceed in the vast lumber of remaining appointments. As each batch >f appointments is agreed upon in secret session, it rill be published confidentially and exclusively in he Herald, which is now the sacred and favorite irgan of the Corporation Caucus of the " demo. :racie" of New York. Loud Calls for that Vote.?The Cask op McKenzie.?The guilt or innocence of McKenzie s becoming more and more a topic of popular interest. A meeting of his friends has been held at Tarrytown, and resolutions passed in favor of his gallantry, humanity, courage, and true piety. This is all well and amiable, but the meeting showed a most thorough contempt for the facts developed on the trial, when they talked as if a mutiny had actually taken place on board the Somers. But cn patsanl, nany newspapers on the other side are coming out igainst McKenzie, and calling upon his friends to itate the true vote of the Court Martial. Here is >ne?the Albany Argus:? Com. McKenzie.?There is very naturally some specu. ation and inquiry in regard to the vote by which Com. dcKenzie escaped conviction by the Court Menial. It is itserted ou "undoubted authority" in some quarters that even ofthe court were for conviction and five for acquital, and that Com. M. owes his acquittal to the fact that he law of Congress require* a vote of two thirds to conic t of a capital oflence. And in others more friendly to )om. M., that there was, at most, but one dissentient. The lublic hava a right, (and there is nothing in the oath of ecresy taken bv members ofthe court or the Judge Ad'ocate to lorbid it,) to know how the vote stood, though t seems they may not be permitted to know the opinions if individual members ofthe court, unless it shall become lecossary in the pregresit of a judicial investigation. Whether the vote stood seven to five, or eleven to one. is i fact which may be disclosed without trenching upon the trivilegesof the court, or the usages in such cases; and s very necessary to enable the public to judge whether ;ke deliverance ofthe accused was the triumphant vindi;ation as it is aaid (o be by his friends, (fit was such a rote as would have resulted in a disagreement before a ury, and a new trial, the public will regard the question >f guilt or innocence as still open, notwithstanding the iromulgatrd verdict of the court.?Jllhany Jlrgxti. We agree with the Argus, and ask for more light. Let U3 have the vote. Great Western Expresses.?The line of western expresses is now extended and completed from this city, northward and westward, from this city to Albany, and Buffalo, by Pomeroy Ac Co, and thence onward by Messrs.

After the had taken thdr seats, the iiamea of the jurora were called over, and Judge Thompson desired the defendant's counsel to proceed. Jacob Little, examined by Mr. Seldeis, testified that he was, for the last^ten years, an extensive dealer ip exchanges, and in money business. Q by Mr. Seldeis?Suppose you were in the receipt of large sums of money, for which you can discharge yourself from all responsibility by depositing in bank such funds to the creditor your principal, and supposing you were afterwards required, instead of depositing it, to retain it in your own hands, under your own control, without the right of using it, a-id to pay it upon drafts payable to the order of persons residing in all parts of the United States, what would you consider an adequate indemnity, without reference to any fixed compensation you were to receive from your principal? A?From one-eighth to one-half per cent, according to the advances to be made. Judge Thompson?You state what is the common usage and not simply what is your own charge? A?Yes, sir. BenjitMiiv F. Butler, sworn and examined torthe defence?Q?Mr. Butler, during the time you held the office of District Attorney, and during Mr. Hoyt'scollectorship, were you employed by him to defend a suit brought t A ?Yes, sir. Q?Was that suit settled? A?I believe that suit was never formally settled, although some compromise of it took placeQ?When was that done? A?A little more than a year ago; the suit was brought against Mr. Hoyt and one of the banks. 1 was not concerned for the hank. Q?You received instructions to commence several suits against the firm of Lord & Co., at the suit of the United States? A?Yes, sir. Q?I wish you would give some explanation about those suits? A?In the month of January, 1840, at which time I was District Attorney, I received eighty bonds, given by Nel. son J. Elliott U Co. as principals, and Reuben Lord as surety. Immediately, or very soon, after receiving the bonds, 1 applied to the Custom House to ascertain the names of tho persons who composed the firm, having no means of ascertaining myself. I made this inquiry personally. I was then informed, bv some officer of the Custom House, that the firm of Elliott St Co. was composed of N. Elliott and } Lord. That information was given to me officially. I supposed, at the time I received it, and until after the return of the writs, that the information was correct. I did not bring the suits for two months after, although I had instructions to bring them immediately. The reason why I did not bring the suits w??, that Lord had large claims on the government. Throe commissioners were appointed by government to investigate those claims. I was one of the commissioners. Tending the investigation, an opposing claim was put in by the counsel for the corporation, and considerable liti. gation took place as to whether those claims should be paid to the corporation or to Mr-Lord. Theclaim ofMr. Lord was argued by Daniel Lord, Jr., Esq., and the claim of the corporation was argued by their counsel. In consequence of these claims I delayed the suits, as I thought they would be ultimately paid to Mr. Lord, and not to the corporation. I suspended the suits for two months, and I made a full report to the Secretary of the Treasury in explanation. Here Judge Thompson interposed and arid the evidence was not pertinent to the question before the court, and called for Mr. Butler's costs, which were handed up by Mr. Hoyt?amount, $-2661. Mr. Butler requested to be allowed to read some extracts from bis letter book in explanation of the part which he had in the proceedings above detailed, which the court permitted him to do, but as they are not relevant to the subject matter of this Buit we do not give them. John L. Tiffany sworn and examined on the part of the defendant. A book containing a daily account of the deposit lists was handed up to witness. Q?Have you footed up that book? A?I do not recognise this book. Q?Were you an assistant ol Mr. Walters.? A?Yes, sir. Q?State what the course was with regard to the amounts reimbursed to merchants .by Mr. Hoyt. Were tney cnargeu to toe unitea states/ A?They were not. Q?When the amount was received from the Treasury what was done with it? A?We deposited it with the cashier, and it swelled the amount of the'deposit list. When the excess of deposits were called for by the merchants, we paid them, but we Kept no entry of having done so, and when the returns were made we charged them in the deposit list. Judjre Thompson.?What was the effect of that? A?Beyond our office I don't know what the effect is. Cross-examined by the District Attorn?t.?Q?Was not a separate account kept for those deposits? A?Yes, sir. Q?Was the excess credited to the cash account or quarterly account? A?I cannot tell. Q by the Coubt?Is there any account kept of the de. posits? A ?Yes, sir, there is a deposit book.

Cross-examined hy the District Attorney.?I did not compare those entries with the impost ;book, but I compared them with the cash list. Mr. Brown recalled?i examined the account of short deposits now produced, commencing in 1839 and ending with Mr Hoyt's retirement'from office. I found the amount to be $1483 83, chnrged to Mr. Hoyt.

Dear Sir The return of Mr. Webster to this city, and hie anticipated resignation, excites no little interest. His resignation, 1 think, is beyond all doubt. The engrossing topic here is the sentence of the Court in the McKenzie case. The finding of the Court Martial produced no little amazement; for it certainly is at variance with the settled conviction of the public mind, and with what is reported, and positively claimed to be the unanimous opinion of the Cabinet, and what is understood to be the opinion of seven members of the Court. The Somers tease is, and ever must be, one of thrilling interest. It fnrnishes a crisis in the short, yet eventful history of our gallant navy. The pen ofhistory never recorded deeds of more heroic and chivalrous daring, and the scroll of fame is enriched by no brighter names than those lhat have been furnished by the American navy. The true and judicious friends of the navv have been filled wiili dread at the attempt that has been made to vindicate the tragedy of the Somers, and not only to screen its principal actor, but to claim for him new honors, and a brighter fame. The horrible aflair of the Vomers has presented the question, how far human liberty and human life may be sacrificed to allay the fears of a commander, or to minister to his crude and false notions of subordination and discipline, engendered by vanity, and nurtured by mental imbecility. The great gifts of God to man, human liberty and human life are too sacred to yield to any other power than that of stern, unavoidable, and inexorable necessity. Then a freeman may be fettered with irons?anu then he may be torn worn lamny ana mends, lacerating the tenderest feelings of the human heart, and spreading gloom and desolation over the domestic hearth, und over the hopes and prospects of those more intimately allied to him. But unless such necessity exists, no matter if ten thousand brighter names shone upon the historic page of our navy; no matter if ten thousand brighter ileeds covered it with glary, the American navy would become a bye-word and a reproach in a republic of freemen. It would become a very stink in the nostrils; and public opprobrium and execration would settle upon it. 1 care not if the mightiest armada of Europe would quail before it?it the thunders of our cannon caused every throne on earth to tremble ; aud if the gallant bearing of our tars inspired respect in every quarter of the globe, one murder of an American freeman by the arbitrary and lawless power of a despotic commander, sanctioned and countenanced by the. navy, must tarnish its glory, and awake one deep and universal exexpression of public indignation Whether on land or at sea,the spirit andgeniusof our laws and institutions throw the sacred mantle of their protection around the humblest and poorest citizen; and the humblest man in the crew of the Somers, by God, by nature, and by the law of the land, has secured to him the same rights, and the same protection as the most distinguished officer that ever walked an American deck., Strange, indeed, would it be if the American navy were the tyrant's home, and the despot's throne; and if the freeman, who left the peace and security of bis fireside to encounter the dangers of the deep in his country's service, should be exposed to the lawless violence, or the coward fears of a commander Public opinion will settle this great question right, and all T fear is, that the effort made to screen and justify McKenzie will expose our gallant navy to prejudice and popular hostility. Where, in this broad land, was the shocking bfinir of the Somers palliated and softened as if was by the representations of the friends of McKenzie, announced at the domestic fireside, without producing a thrill of horror1? and where was the parent who did not cling to his son and vow that the American navy should never witness the lawless execution of his child 1 and where was lhe[mother whose son was enrolled upon the navy list who did not offer up her prayer to Heaven that he might speedily be released from a service where chains and blood, punishment and death were made to allay fear and to feed a fahe and diseased appetite for renown? I have but a moment to advert to the relation of Mr. Secretary Spencer to this question. It was a delicate and trying one, and most nobly did he sustain himself. His bearing has been that of a tender and oflectionate parent filled with anguish at the ciuel death of his son, as well as that of a high minded patriot submitting the cause to the law and to the legally constituted tribunals of the country. Pure and elevated as has been his course in all this matter, he has been charged with bringins|otiicial influence to bear against M;Ken/.ie. Nothingcanbe more false. Never was Mr. Spencer present a moment in the Cabinet when this question was under discussion, and never did he exchange a word concerning it with the President or the Secretary of the Navy. He abstained most carefully from all interference, and from the exertion of official influence on this subject. This is well known here, and I am well assured that every member of the Cabinet will cordially and fully sustain my assertion. Never did Mr. Spencer utter one word to the President on the subject, and never did they in any way communicate concerning it. Yet to sustain McKenzie and to excite some sympathy in his favor, the slander has been gotten up that official influence was sought to be directed against him (K/- Now that the city is so full of strangers, they could not employ their time more advantageously should they have a leisure hour at their command, than by visiting the American Museum.
