NEW YOKE HERALD \tw lork. Friday, May A, |8?a. Herald Literary Depot. All the new end cheap literary publication* of the day In. ..I. eknlMlla anj rriail mt *W_ U n northwest corner of Naman and Pnlton it root. Hi b?criskr?changing their residence, will please notily at Utii othce, corner of Nassau and Fulton streets, where they want tha Herald left hereafter. Our Buffalo aubacriheri are hereby informed (that Mr|T. 8. Hawk* i* th ^authorized agent for the ?ale of the Herald. Subscribers can rely on beingj regularly served by him. No other )>eraon representing hiaiaclt aa agent will be supplied tiom thia office. The China Mission.?We understand Irom Washington thai the connection of the name of Kdward Curtis, the Collector of thia port, with thia mission, is not by any mransso problematical as some would imagine. It is quite possible that such a thing may taic place nut ii if ucuersiooa mat notning will De definitely dooe, until the final reply of Mr. Everett shall be received, as it probably will be by the next steamer. It is generally supposed that Mr. Everett will decline the appointment. He isa man of gTeat constitutional timidity, and has a most christian aversion to the smell ot gunpowder. Perceiving that Chinese adaire are in rather a ticklish condition at present, rendering it not at all improbable that some cannon balls may yet be discharged, Mr. Everett, however much his literary ambition might be gratified by an opportunity of (investigating Chinese antiquities, does not, it is supposed, at all desire any practical experiments in artillery,and therefore will politely refuse to accept the appointment. On the other hand, the appointment of Mr. Curtis would be generally regarded as judicious. Mr. Curtis is a man ot great tact, practised business habits, and would doubtless take as good care of the American interests in China, as any other man in the country. In the meantime Mr. Webster will remain in Mas. sachusetts after he leaves Washington, and in conjunction with Mr Cushing, will, it is supposed, be named as a commissioner to meet the special commissioners to be 6ent from England in relation to the great tariff aegociations now in contemplation. Injustice to the Mechanics ok New York and Brooklyn.?We stated, a few days since, that the Secretary of the Navy had ordered the Franklin 74 from Brooklyn to Boston, or Norfolk, for repairs. The Franklin is sixteen years old, and has never been afloat. It will require extensive repairs to get her in condition to tow her out of the port, which will be useless, as she will have to be thoroughly overhauled again. She requires repairs sufficient to employ from 300 to 400 men eight months, which can be done here as well as at any navy yard in the country. The ways at our navy yard are in as perfect order as when the Savannah was repaired; and the largest vessel in our navy can be placed on them in eight hours, at a trifling expense. We see no just reason why our mechanics shcnld not be lairly used in this business. The Franklin was built here, and it is no more than right 6he should be finished here. Our mechanics are as skilful as any in the Union, and the work can be done as economical here as elsewhere. We hope the Secretary will think of these fac's, and on the second sober thought, annul the order for her removal. The Revolution Begun.?We perceive that Henry A Wise has been re-elected in his district in Virginia. This is the first Tyler-m in elected in the United States We believe there was onct a Tyler-man who received, somewhere in this State, twenty votes, but no man could make out his name. But the election of Wise is certain. This is beginning the business for this season. Probably, the next man elected will be Caleb Cushing?a very clever sort of a fellow. We Bhall watch hie case with great interest. But the Tyler people, if they intend to succeed, must go-ahead a little faster. If they don't, they cannot hope to do much in the May Convention. They must do something better than elect one Tyler man in two years. Among the Candidates for the Custom House are William L. Marcy, Alderman Purdy, Wm. Paxton Hallet, and Mayor Morris. Sometime since Hallet was number one in Bob Tyler's estimation, but now it seems the discovery has been made that he is not a pure enough democrat; and the choice ot the elective power is vibrating between Alderman Purdy and Bob Morris, occasionally inclining a little towards Wm. L Marcy. At all events the chances of these three are pretty nearly equal. It is' uncertain, howeve.r whether any of them would ! accept the office, nor is it a matter of any consequence whether they would or not. Steam Ship Hibkknia?This new steamer is not such a remarkably fast ons, after all. She was out fourteen days when we last heard from Boston, and Adams and Harnden say that there were no signs of her when they left. It is to be presumed, however, that she reached there yesterday, and that we shall receive her news at an early hour this morning. If so, look out for an Extra Herald. Catholic Policy? Chubch of St. Louis at Buffalo.?It appears, from the letter of a correspondent, in another column, that the difficulties in the case of the Church of St L ouis have been amicably arranged. Bishop Hughes has, it seems, in some measure compromised the points in dispute, and, vieldinu up the rieht insisted on in his celebrated pastoral letter, lias signified his permission to the trustees to manage their own affairs as heretofore. This is very wise and judicious on the part of the right reverend prelate, and shows that he has a greater regard for the peace, comfort, and health of souls, than for the filthy lucre of this world. There can be little doubt that the best policy of the Catholic clergy is, ts allow the people of this country to manage the church proj>ertyto which theythemselves contribute. It is always a dangerous experiment lor the clergy to meddle with secular afliirs. Foi rierism ?It seems that Greeley, Brisbane, and Dr. Channing?a trinity of transcendental Christianity and benevolence?are busily engaged in occupying the void created by the absence of the F..iher Miller mania, and are going about the country giving lectures on association. They are holding mass meetings in various sections of the country, and it is said that between #50,000 and #100,000 have been already subscribed towards carrying out their grand project for the regeranation of society, and the purchase of a place in New Jersey,where the grand exi>erinient is to be made. The firm of Brisbane, Greeley and Charming, are very amiable men, nn Hniihf. and thpv will tin tl.A ? ?* .l ? 1 / " ??' iu carry uui ninr philanthropic views We rather think, however, that the old fabric of society will not be seriously endangered by their operations. Qrraar.?What has become of the Empirt T Captain Itowe is visible and forthcoming but the boat is it seems rum eti mventui. Several gentlemen came down the other day on purpose to see her, but found it was a wild goose chase. How is this? No Go ?It was stated that Mr. Lowndes had started alter the absconding Mr. Shiptnan, and by this lime some suppose he is on the route to Texas Mr Lowndes was never out of the city at all, and the whole thing is a talae scent. ffi* CHAMiJis Baoot ?It was reported, but not believed, in Montreal, on the 1st mat. that Sir Charles ttagot was dead. PoMEROYik Co arrived yesterday morning, with Toronto, Montreal and Buffalo papers, one day in advance of the mail. 11akni>en& Co. arrived at five o'clock yesterday morning with| Boston papers of the previous eve Flake Up in the Bonnett Teade ?We perceive ihat the great rival ol Mr. Webb?John Burton ol 92J Bowery, has published an advertisement ^ offering a reward ef $100 for the discovery of the C miscreants who destroyed a number of the famous cheap A mazone bonnets, by throwing oil of vitriol on ? ' thein last Saturday night. This bonnet business into 81 which Mr. Webb has entered with such zeal and h vigor, seems to create a great noise in the world. It 3< seems altogether a most amusing business. We have made several philosophical investigations into the nature and character of the Amazone 'f bonnet, and find that it is made ot a species ot Ma- 8< nilla hemp, very cheap, and manufactured at Ma- u nilla into the hats and bonnets worn by the lowest t( classes. The idea of Webb making such & fuss about 1,1 this article is irresistibly ludicrous. Webb sells his bonnets at &6 apiece; whilst John Burton sells them for $4 to $5 each. We advise ei our ancient friend Webb to be very cautious about getting too deep into this funny business. 11 he go a ]a little too far now there is no chance of getting out at of the mud, by the friendly aid of a bankrupt's cer- . tificate. Take care, then, Master Webb, or you fe may find out to yoursorrow that you have got a very hi uncomfortable bee in your bonnet!] Cl ot Park Thkatrx.?The crowded audience at the Pc Park last night seemed quite like old times. Placide, Risley, and Hackett?three very powerful at- t tractions. With twoof them the public are well ac- re quainted?less so, however,with Master Risley. We do but express the unanimous sentiments of even the severest critics, when we 6ay that thia is truly a very jte remarkable child, and equally claims admiration both for his adroitness, skill, and astonishing physi- ^ cal abilities, and. also for the exquisite grace and of beauty, and] inimitable naivdi, which characterise ne all his performances. No persons who ever indulge in theatrical amusements, should fail to see Master th Risley and his father?and when they do see them, ex they should remember that they are the same per- ?f sons who were saved in such a miraculous manner " at the Guadaloupe earthquake. They perform but ?e one night more before their departure for Europe, hi To-morrow night is Risley V benefit, and of course re he will have a bumper. Master John had another r bouquet, and garland, last night, and well did he de w* serve them. Di 1 gll" Musical.?Signor Nagel gives his farewell con- pG cert at the Apollo Saloon this evening. Mrs. to Loder, and Messrs. Rakeman and Dempster, and Jjj other distinguished artists will appear. That the wj room will be crowded, we have no doubt. thi M. Bley gives a grand vocal and instrumental J" concert at the Apollo, on Thursday next, assisted by Mrs. Sutton. w| Mr. John A. Kyle, one of the best flutists in the rei country, gives his annnal concert at the Apollo, on Monday next. He will be assisted by a brilliant array of talent, and will, as usual, have a crowded jc room. cii Mr. Raymond had a very excellent house at the e? Olympic on the occasion of his first benefit. Mr. R. is a young gentleman of great promise, and bids N. fair to attain a high rank as an actor and a vocalist. Mi ?... . coi Mr. Bradbury gives his last juvenile concert this to evening, when a perfect array of young vocalists ] will appear. bni lec Niblo's Garden.?Niblo opens for the season on jj" the first of June. He has engaged the French Com- ne. imiiyiiuiiiiicw vucniiB, Dam it? uc Mir uiusi micm- in ed and effective ever seen in this country. French 8?1 opera and Vaudeville will be played every alternate ^ night, and light English farces and Vaudevilles,with Burton, Miss Reynolds, and other eminent perform- El ers, will also be produced every second night. The to gardens have been greatly improved, it is said, al- jjj though we doubt whether there was any room for ne improvement. They will, in fact, be equal to the de most brilliant of the Parisian summer resorts. All . the youth, beauty and fashion of the city will visit in< Niblo's during the Beason. The moonlight?the cool walks?the fountain?the ice-creams?the co mint julaps?the flirtations?the gossipings?the un scandal?all will be as delightful as it is possible for P?' anything to be on this dirty earth. Kl Juvenii.k Concert-?By reference to our adverti- ^v sing columns, our readers will find a notice of Mr. Bradbury's Juvenile Musical Festival, at the Tabernacle, this (Friday) evening. From the well known reputation of this zealous teacher of children, in sp the delightful art of music, the public may justly expect a rich treat. It will be a repetition of the con- w< cert which was held a few evenings since, at the on same place, when hv a vote of an overflowing and delighted audience, it was resolved to repeat it at ^ the earliest opportunity. The admirable performan- ag ces of the children comprising his choir on the oc- cc casion, could not but inspire every one with a desire or to hear them again, and those persons who neglected Ya the former, 6hould "not fail to attend on the present ,0 occasion. ca M Theatricals and Religion.?The Tremont The- ln atre is at last sold. It has been purchased by the , Baptists in Boston, for the Rev. Mr. Colver. Price bo $.50,000, including gas fixtures. w< co Chatham Theatre?Manager's Benefit.?The I"1 entertainments this evening are for the benefit of Mr. Thome, the worthy and enterprising manager ha of the Chatham, whose fame in the theatrical line th has spread far and near. In order to increase the jJJ attraction, he has engaged the services of Mr. ye Booth, who will appear in the character of Sir Ed- as ward Mortimer, in the Iron Chest. Anewcandi- j* date for popular favor, Mr. W. Marshall, has also been brought out at the Chatham, and will make at his second appeatance this evening, in the character to of Elsie, in the drama of the Black Dwarf. This gentleman, as a melo-dramatic actor, has but few ja equals. He possesses no ordinary degree of talent, B and will no doubt prove highly popular. ____________ hi Naval News.?We have learned from authority JJJ on which we place reliance, that Wales, the infor- f0 mer, on whose unsustained testimony young Spencer was condemned, has been discharged from the naval service of the United States. The recommen- w (i at ions of Commander McKenzie appear thus far to to have been not at all effective J' A rumor of a very painful nature ;s in circulation ^ respecting one of the principal officers of the So- y< mere. We forbear making any further remark at d< present, from motives of delicacy, and in the hope n' that the rumor is unfounded. w Eugene Sullivan has, on the recommendation of Judges Greenwood and Ingraham, and the Recor- Cl der and the Mayor,been discharged from the service, * no proof whatever of his having been guilty of a mu- k tiny having been discovered. This is the lad who w held Commodore Perry to bail last winter for ordering him to be ironed a second time, contrary to the w decision of Judge Greenwood. Sullivan yesterday, hi by virtue of the same statute, as that under which d, he proceeded against Commodore Perry, issued a Cl warrant against Sergeant Garty, who put him in h irons. Garty was held in bail to the amount of cl IT<J,r>oi), for a penalty of #1,260. tH We are anxious to know the result of the Phila- w delphia examination. What has become of it 1 Wc hi pause for a reply. w 8f Naval ?The United States brig Truxton, Lieut. ^ Upshur, now at Norfolk, will nail soon for Constan- tj, tinople, to bring home the remains of Commodore Porter. a| ci Two Arrivals prom Canton.?The Niantic, Hepburn, arrived on Wednesday jrom Cantnn. it Also the Akbar. The Niantic sailed thence on o the 3d of January. Nothing new by her. "j Opening or Business attmr Wkst ? Last Monday, the day the canals opened, business started ahead in Rochester, and along the line, and waa moving briskly at the last accounts. Before eight o'clock on Monday morning 2500 boats had been ' despatched towards tide water at Rochester alone. n??????? City Intelligence. I Police.?The ap|>oiniment ot Keeper of the City 'risoa by the Democratic members of the Common loUDcil. on TiimHhv not i? nn? nf ; ince to the strict observance ot the Police discipline f this city than any other that falls within their lit. Of the applicants there are few, very lew,who ave the requisite qualifications for this important :ation. We say important, because the welfare ot 1 te city, so tar as relates to protection from rogues, tievesand midnight burglars, depends much upon le strict performance of his duties, and at the tme time he is bound to grant all those privileges > accused persons that the law in its mercy exnds to them. It is therefore to be hoped that no ovice will be selected for the place of Keeper of te City Prison, but one who has some knowtdge ot the character of crime in this crowd 3 city; one wno nas a partial acquaintance, t least, with the prominent characters who are in lily commission of acts, that bring them sooner or ter, within his keeping; and one who has a lull id general knowledge of the peculiarities of the legal" cormorants or prison ostriches, who flock jout its precincts like hungry vultures round a ast ot carrion. A person should be selected who is some powers and comprehension of prison displine?one who is rigid, but humane, tirm but not /erbearing, kind but not credulous. He should be issessed ot the bump of order, and if there is such phrenological developement as cleanliness, that ioula form a prominent point in his character, he deputy keepers on whom so much devolves lative to the internal discipline ol the prison, lould be possessed of similar qualifications, and a male matron shsuld be selected to preside over the male prison under the immediate controlling surintendence of the first Deputy Kefper. To Col. Jones, who is about to retire from the potion ot Keeper, which he has held for the past >ar, much is due lor his strict attention to the duties ' his office, and particularly tor the cleanly man r in which the prison has been kept during his rm of service. To Mr. Human, his principal Duty, he has been much indebted for assistance in e police discipline of the prison, us the previous :perience ol that gentleman gave him opportunities discernment unposseessd byUol.Jones, whose mild id kind disposition, is such that it is fuily evident, s was never made for keeper ot a prison. He has rtormed his duty in a most able manner, and may s predecessor give as general satisfaction on his tirrmentfrom olfice. Fencing up a Public House.?Passing down tntre street, yesterday alternoon, we perceived a orkman busily engaged on a small space in front of inn's Sixth Ward Hotel, on Centre and Duane eet, in opening holes in the sidewalk, lor the purse ot placing posts therein to erect a board fence enclose the premises. On inquiry, we ascertainthat such directions had been given by the llev. . Janeway, who is the agent of the premises, und tiom we understand claimed rent for the use of e lot, in accordance with a previous agreement, this emergency, Captain Dunn made application the administratrix of the estate of the late Alderin O'Neil, from whom he rents his premises, len |an| arrangement was entered into, and the nt paid, the stakes taken down, the holes filled up, d the entrance to the Sixth Ward Hotel left as ual. Small potatoes. Burglar from New Jersey.?A fellow, named ihn McCollin, was arrested on suspicion in this ty yesterday, by a citizen, to whom he had oflera number of carpenter's planes at six pence a ?ce. It was soon afterward ascertained that the gue had stolen them Irom a church in Plaiufield J., where they had been left by the workmen, d also that he had entered the store of Webster, irch & Co., of the same place, and stolen two ats belonging to the establishment. He was sent New Jersey for trial. n the wrong Shop.?Some cool, calculating ] rglar, who supposed that the enormous rents colted by the agents of the corporation of the Triy Church, were deposited at this period in the ofe of that building, attempted to enter it on Wed- ( sday night, for the purpose of making a raise.? ie imaginative, sacrilegious burglar, might have red himself ihe trouble, as no money is leit there er the usual hours for closing the bank in which ; church makes its depositee. Another Warning.?A white woman named izabeth Keyser, who had become so debased as make common fellowship with blacks in a house " Shin Bone" Alley, rear of 270 Walker sireet, ed in a drunken fit on Wednesday, and the Coror held an inquest on the body yesterday, and orred her buried in Potter's Field. Arrested on a Bench Warrant.?Levi Heine, iicted tor perjury committed in a case before the irine Court, in which John Fishblaat was a party, is arrested yesterday on a bench warrant, and mmitted to prison. His trial has been postponed til the next term, owing to the fact that it was imssible to obtain an unbiassed jury from the preat panel, since the case of Hallenstein was preited to the Court, as Heine was a witness in the me cause, And swore to similar statements made Hallenstein. The Murdered Family?Further Particulars. We have received some further particulars reacting the horrid butchery over in New Jersey. The Bcene of the shocking affair is about 55 miles ret of Newark, within two miles of Port Coldenl the Morris Canal, about ten?miles this side of ilvidere, and within three miles of the village of anstield. A neighbor who was passing towards the Port, we learn from the Newark Advertiser, first disivered the mangled body of Castner in a sink hole i one side of the road, some two or three hundred irds from the house, to which of course he tissued with all possible speed, but found no answer his knock. The other neighbors were instantly lied, and on throwing open the door, the body of rs. Castner was found, with her murdered infant her arms, 1} ing in bed, killed apparently by stabs the neck. On going up stairs the neighbors found a hired y, some 15 or 16 years old, in his bed, severely lunded by similar stabs, unable to give any acunt whatever of the dreadful occurrence, not lowing even how he was hurt, though having posssion of his senses.?They next entered Mr. irke's room, and also found his body in bed, he .ving been killed in the same way, apparently by e same instrument. Mr. P. was an unmarried an of.'some 60 years of age. On returning to the wer story of the house, two boyr, from fl to 10 ars old, Mr. Castner's eldest children, were found leep in the room adjoining their mother's, perctly unconscious of the dreadful tragedy enacted inng the night. The whole neighborhood was of course immediely alarmed, and measures were promptly adopted i trace the unknown murderers,including a reward I $1000. Money appears to have been their object, the family was reputed to be rich. Mr. Parke, it said, had drawn several thousand dollars from the elvidere bank, which was found undisturbed in his loset. Castner's desk was found open, and may ave been robbed of more or less money, but othing certain is known about it. His pistols, for e always kept weapons af defence at hand, were iund undisturbed. A Coroner's inquest was held as soon as possible / Justices Arndt and Anderson, and a verdict of ilful murdet, by some person or persons unknown, as rendered. No clue had been obtained to lead any discovery when our informants (Mrssrs. icob T. Thompson and Gideon L. Swiaaher,) left le place yesterday It was conjectured that Cast?r, who was a stronir, athletic man of 86 or 10 'ars, must have been called out of bed and mur red on the road, as there were marks of a scuffle rar the lime-stone sink hole, where the body, cut ad bruised apparently by some rails froig the fence, as found. A robust looking foreigner, who wears spectacles, ime into the neighborhood some weeks since,and as seen during Monday, but was not present at the xamination, nor was it known that 'te had any nowledge of it. The wounded boy, it is thought, ill recover, but he can throw nv> light whatever on te case. The physician thought from the api?enrnce of the wounds, Hnd the fact that the bodies ere warm when discovered, that the murders must ave been perpetrated after midnight, or near Tues ay morning. A Trenton paper says there was a great conourse of the people of the neighborhood at the ouse, and a committee was appointed to take large of the effects of the murdered persons. The only person upon whom suspicion rests, is a ill, stout man in green spectacles, with black tuskers, a stranger unknown to every one, who td been lingering in the neighborhood for three eeks, without any known business, and was last en about two miles from the house on the evening fore the murder. Two persons started in pursuit r him yesterday morning, and it was supposed ley could overtake him, as the roads are very bad. This murder of four persons in cold blood, the fed, the middle aged, and the infant, without mer! and without regard to the number of lives deroyed.or the sex of the victims?committed upon ie old man in his wealth, and the feeble infant at a mother's bosom, would be terrible in any comlunity ; but amoi g the quiet, peaceable, orderly gricnltural community where it was committed, it i most appalling.

Auune Scekeky at Sunset ?T. Doughty. U. This picture is characterized by the same trutnlul fidelity to nature, that distinguishes most of Doughly's works. The aerial effect of the sky and distance is managed in a manner which we think no otherlandscaie painter in the country could equal; and the touching of the foliage is remarkably free and beautiful. 90. Queen Elizabeth and the Countess ok Not? T /I AT A rru:? : ? TINUtLAM. J. vjr. V^Iltt^IIlUIl, H . A| 1 II1S ID all CAicruingly slight and sketchy picture, and will add nothing to the artist's reputation. The figure of the Countess would be more appropriate in design, had it been intended for an Italian Duenna. The whole has evidently been executed in haste, and we beg to admonish Mr. Chapman, that acknowledged as his ability is, he is by no means so firmly established in public favor, as to render it safe torhim toexhtbil careless and unstudied piciures. 101. Ajli.kuhany Scenery- New River Cliffs. 11. Gignoux. The chief merit of this picture consists iu the handling of the foliage, which is very free and true to nature. For the rest, it is taine and meagre in color, and in effect of light and shade. 21. The Lover Dismissed (j. W. Flapg, H. A picture of considerable merit?the figure ot the lady is well conceived and sweetly painted. The discomfited lover, we think, verges upon caricature, but has nevertheless much spirit and humor. 1-17. Landscape. J. Shaw, H. The works ol this artist have many admirers, but we cannot rank ourselves among the number. We are williug to concede to them the merit of exceeding neatness, and manual dexterity?but these qualities, though sufficient to make an excellent sign painting, do not constitute greatness in art. Mr. Shaw has a settled, stereotyped method of handling his subjects, from which nothing, it seems, can tempt him to depart. A watchmaker is not more regular in his processes than he?and consequently, his pictures lack the spirit and freshness which is indispensable to good landscape painting. His foliage is invariably of one color and touch, and his geological researches have not yet proved to him that thare is more than one character of rock. His figures have all similar faces and dresses?nay, his very cows are of a uniform hue, and have the same spots. In fact, Mr. tihaw is altogether an unmitigated mannerist?and that his manner is formed either upon a good taste or a careful Btudy of nature, we cannot be led to believe. As to the present picture, it has a Shaw sky, a Shaw distance, Shaw foliage, Shaw foreground?in fine, it is altogether?Shaw. 53 Portrait of a Lady. D. Huntington, N. A. A very masterly, fine toned picture, much in the style of Phillips, the English Royal Academician, to whom it is generally thought a larger share of the tnantle of Lawrence has fallen, than any other portrait painter of the day. 213. Portrait of Anne Bolkyn, at the moment she has received her accusation?L Rosseati. Ye gods! Anne Bolcyn ! he who is described by a gallant chronicler of the time as " a ladye of surpassynge beauty, and of a most high and stately presence." Ah, little did her admirers think she would ever be subjected to such an indignity as this ! As we looked at the picture we imagined we could hear the bones of blufi King Harry rattling with rage in their cerements, and that all around us gathered the shades of his gay courtiers, who uttered execrations both loud and deep, all save one, a female rival of the fair Anne's?and she indulged in a laugh of malignant satisfaction. Seriously, Mr. Rosseau, we do beseech you to spare the public another year the infliction of your works For your own sake also we urge this ; you have already drawn down heavy denunciations upon your head. The friends of Fanny Elssler especially are swelling with wrath, and we heard remote hints of a suit for libel. For our own part, we have bowels of compassion lor every brother of the brush ; but we rtjiust confess that we do leel a little annoyed at youi treatmont of Anne Boleyn. We trust, however, fhftf vr?ll will oin nn mnru fr\r uffpr (Itiu tn inflift more upon us another year would be gratuitously unfeeling and inhuman. Here we must postpone our remarks until to-morrow. We are glad to see the rooms continue to be well attended. Movements and Doings.?The following individuals are at Howard's popular establishment ? The Hon. Charles Clinton, and the Hon. S SBowne have just arrived from Washington. It is said that the latter is an applicant for the Governor's chair of Iowa?whether successful or not, we are not informed. C.S. Hammond, Esq., Auditor-General of Michigan, from which place he has just arrived. John Brough, Esq., and his colleague, Dr. E- M. Hubbard, who are endeavoring to efTect the Ohio loan, are still stopping here. David Pingree, of Salem, who is well known as oneofthe most distinguished Canton merchants in the country, is also here. ^ Ex-Governor Marcy and lady, and Chief Justice Savage, have not yet finished that insurance business, and are still stopping here?as also Messrs. Hall and Barker, the ex and present Attorney Generals of the State, Judge Co wen and lady, Messrs. Johnson of Dutchess county, Russell of Washington county, Judges Halsey, R ogers, and Thompson, and various oihersof distinction. Navigation on all the northern lakes and streams will be free early to-morrow morning. Nothing so cheering now at the north and west, as the ooaiman a nor* ana me pumng steam. ivterrily moves every thing like produce to market. Thk Weather.?Since May set in we have experienced the worst kind of spring weather. Cold, blasting, penetrating east winds have mostly prevailed. The Insurrection in Porto Rico.?We learn that the leaders had been secured at Ponce, after butchering several white persons. This was on the 7th ult. The Steam Packet Boston, which is to make one trip a week between here and Norfolk, arrived from that place in thirty-six hours' run. The Susquehannah was falling at the last accounts. Trifling injury to the canals. Navigation will be resumed in a few days. The Fourier Association ? The practicability of the Fourier system of Association is likely very soon to be tested, upon a somewhat extended scale. The Sylvan i a Association of New Yoik, have just purchased 2,500 acres of excellent land in Pike county, Pa., upon which is 100 acres cleared and a saw mill and a grist-mill in operation. The Association are to pay #7,000 lor the land?#2,100 of which is to be in the stock of the association. Fifty members proceed at once to the grouna to clear and build, preparatory to the removal of three hundred in the fall. General Sessions. Before Recorder Tallmadge and Alderman Hatfield and Croliua.

Thicviko Servast Cosvicted.?A woman, named Margaret Brady, who had lived with Joaeph Ely. teacher, or 161 bast Broadway, as a servant, was tried on a charge of grand larceny in stealing two coats and cloaks belong ing to himself and some of his scholars, valued at from 36 to SO dollars. It was proved that she was arrested in the act of attempting to urge a man to pawn them. The value of the clothing being doubtful, the jury found a verdict el petit larceny only, and the Court sentenced her to six months in the penitentiary. Stkaumu Corpus Com?A black fellow named William Collins, a market loafer, was tried on a charge of burglary in the third degree, in breaking into and steal ing $ 16 in cents and some papers, from the store of Oliver Johnson corner ol Msdison and Market streets.

Th? accused was found in possession ol a portion ol the stolen goods, and the jury convicted her of grand larceny. She was then tried lor stealing wearing apparel valued at $61, from Mr. and Mrs. Hutton, of 8S First street, and also convicted. There hi ing three other indictments against her. and three additional charges of larceny, the court sentenced her to the State prison for ten vears.

The accused was detected in tho act of breaking into the house, but had not actually entered at the time. The Jury, therefore, under the charge ofthe court, returned a verdict of guilty of burglary in tlse second degree, and the court sentenced him to the state prison for seven vears. Makslauohtkb.?A black man named Cornelius Jackson, was tried lor manslaughter, in having caused the death of a black man named Joshua Toogood. It appeared from the evidence which waa published at the timo as taken before the Coroner, that the accused struck Toogood while he was endeavoring to enterthe room in which he waa sleeping, and falling to the floor, he was so severely injured that he died several days afterwards.

It hat been on now Tor fourteen da) s. The amount depending i u|?n thi* iuit n $4.>,00n. Mr. Lord finished the closing argument thUforenoon, and Judge Oakley proceeded ta i charge the jury. Thi? ii a caie of great interest. It it a caae involving a very large amount of property, a? al?o the character of the plaintiff, and of hii principal witness, The law in theic caies is very simple and well underI n., IV. - _?-r ?I- - J-r?..r . - ! = v.. me |.iuVi iu? (inriicp, me contract id an iustirance case is peculiarly one of good faith, as so much depends upon his statements On the part ot the Insm I runce Company, the contract should he construed with liberality, in order to cover the extent of the losses which from their very nature must be more or less uncertain , And such is the nature also of the contract, that any in I stance of Iraud on the part of the plaintiit, or any false swearing, vitiates and renders null and void the policy, 1 and no recovery at *11 can be had of the Insurance Company. Your verdict must either bo for the full amount of the claim, or else it must be for the defence; there can be no middle ground. The defence rests upon ' one gronnd only. That there haa been an attempt on the | part of the Howards to impose a lalse account upon the Insurance Companies. If such be the iact, the plaintili can recover nothing at all, although he has undoubtedly suffered n great loss. Judge Oakley here proceeded to recapitulate the evidence in the case. According to a hook ot inventory offered by the plaintilf, the sum ol $48,000 or $47,000 is made to appear. If you can rely U|>on the testimony ol J cob A Howard, then*without doubt, the plaintilf has made out his case. The whole history of this case, is a most remarkable illustration of the great ease and facility with which persons in this community can obtain credit. For Mr. Howard, a young man from the country, with no capital at all, (lor although he had $400, yet it is so small a sum as to lie accounted no capital at all,) commences business and obtains credit to a very large amount Thia is very easily done?by first making false representations in respect to the amount of his property, and thus getting a I credit oi a lew thousand dollars?and then going to another merchant, and stating the credit already obtained and making that a basis for still further credits. Thus he goes on from one to another, until an immense amount ot credit has been obtained. This appears to be precisely the case af Mr. Howard in this case. And this is the first ground of attack upon Mr. Howard's credibility. 1 he second attack is made on the ground that the inventory contained in tho book is lalscly made. The witnesses on the part of the defence estimate the property in the store as low as $16,000, and none of them higher than $-70,000. While on the other hand, the witnesses for the plaintilf. make out the property much higher, $30,000 or $40,000 ; and Mr Hnnrnr/1 matrnc if Attt an Kiah ua C.4A fWMl nr . 000. Thin i? certainly a very wide margin, but it is Tor you to form an opinion as to what statements ars to be believed. As to the fire, I see no evidence to charge Mr. Howard with having set fire to the building. In all cases of fire, there is always likely to be a vague suspicion that it did not originate without dishonesty. But you cannot charge a party with this dishonesty without evidence, and on a mere suspicion. And I do not understand that the defentant relies upon this as a part of their defence. Verdict for the defendants. Allication will be made to the Court to set aside the verdict and grant a new trial Charles O'Connor, F. B. Cutting. D. Lord, for Plaintiff ; J. P. Hall, John Anthon, James II. Whiting, for defendant. Court or Common Plena. Before Judge Inglis. Mat 4.?David H. Robertson, Executor of the Eetate of Margaret Reberteon, deceased, vs. Mary Woddle and Jefferson Brown.?This was an action of replevin, brought by plaintiff, {as executor, agaiost the defendants for a sofa, Ac. taken on an execution out of a Justice's Court, in favor ^>f Maiy Woddle agamst David H. Robertson. The plaintiff* contended, that the goods in question belonged to the estate of his deceased mother Margaret Robertson, and that he held them as executor, and not in his own right. To prove Mrs. Robertson's property in this furniture, the plaintiff*introduced a deed from States M Mead and Hannah his wife, to Margaret Robertson, dated May 1,1839,of ahouseand lot in the Second Avenue, between Sixth and Seventh streets, for $18.A00, subject to a mortgage of $6000, which was retained by Mrs. Robertson out of the purchase money, to pay the mortgage. Tha will of Margaret Robertson was then introduced, by which she bequeathed b11 her persanal property to the children of the plaintiff*, (her grand children,) not, however, mentioning the house and lot in her will. The plaintiff' next called Margaret Robertson, his daughter, who proved the taking of the property by the defendants; that the same had been in the house where the family lived, (the premises described in the uccnj iui luc i?i iuua ui uvtjyfHiii, uuuinHL urrgranamother, Mrs. M. Robertson, resided there. On cross examinatisn, this witness testified that her father,the plaintiff*, was a shipping and commission merchant in this city; that her grandmother was old and infirm, and had been supported by her father as long as she could remember; that her father kept a carriage and horses, which he had constantly used tor the last four years to the present time, and that he supported the family generally. It was likewise proved, that the plaintiff had passed through the bankrupt law about a year since. The plaintiir here rested his case, and the defendants' cotinsel^noved for a nonsuit, on the following grounds -.?1st, tnat the suit was improperly brought by the plaintitfin his official capacity asexecutor, before probate of the will. U, that the suit should have been brought in the name of the grand children, as the property was devised to them by the deceased. 31*, that there had been no sufficient proof that the goods belonged to the plaintiff as executor. The Court refused the motion lor a nonsuit, and the defendants' counsel, after producing a judgment end execution in favor of Mary Woddle against David 11. Robertson, issued out of a Justice's Court, for $7 06, on account of painting done en the premises above-mentioned, then proceeded to comment to the jury on the evident fraud of the whole transaction, and the absurdity of supposing that an old lady who had subsisted for the last four years on the charity of her son, should own a house and lot worth >10,300, together with all the furniture in the house, and thatiu her will she should bequeath only her personal property, and make no mention at all of her real estate. He likewise contended that the fraudulent tissue ot the plaintiff's transactions might likewise be seen in the fact, that he had passed through the bankrupt law, and yet managed to keep a carriage and horses long before, and down to the present day, and likewise carried on an extensive business as a shipping and commission merchant. After hearing plaintiff's counsel, the jury retired undercharge fthe Court, and in a short time returned a verdict fordefen-lants for the amount of the judgment and interest.
