In illustration I would state, that within these five years past the best foreign wheats have been occasionally nearly douhlethe price of Irish; and had it not be?i for the supply thereol to mi* our interior Irish with, its price at such times must hare been still lower, if not rendered altogether unsaleable, for millers' purposes." If the apprehensions of the Irish millers are as well fou ided as i h** v appesr to he from the statements thay put lorth, any measure so injurious as the projected one may pro*? of aerious consequence in exciting discontent in that country. The Mail Couch contract having just passed fiom'the hands of an Irishman tothose of a Scotchman, has crested a sensation in Dublin which astonishes Knglish lomaalists. A little increased pressure on the farmers of Ireland .will he sufficient to cause a rebellion against the New Poor Law. The Government cannot be a rare that the amount ofcapital invested in flour mills in Or,-at Britain, is, on plausible, if not clearly valid grounds, supposed to he greater than the amount of capital invested in the Cotton Mills of Great Britain. The amount of trade in Manchester continue* large, and more satisfactory to thoae engaged in it than it has been lor j ears nf improvement in the demand for money in discount transactions, which we have several times noticed, doat not abate, but it has not yet produced any advance of the rates. Livcaroot Markets, April 19. ??Sales to some extent have taken place in Tearl Ashes at 30s ; 81s has smce been obtained, but they ate now dull at the quotations Few transactions have occurred in Montreal I'ot, but prices have improved, and they are at present worth about lis 8J, which has been obtained for some small parcels. April 13 ? Cotton ? A reaction has taken place in cotton this woek. Hnd the dullness noticed in our previou?|rt port, has altogether disappeared , the return of animation has not. however, been accompanied with any decided improvement in prices, though previous rates have, in all instances, met wnh steady support, and, as regards fair to good qualities nf American,hare, pethaps, been exceeded. Long stapled descriptions and Surots remain as before. The sales of 'he la*t fivi days have amounted to 29 68'i hales, ol which 23,470 were American, 960 Brazils, 70 > Kg) ptian, 270 West India, and 2."-Ml East India, Ac.? Speculator* have taktn 9,000 American, and exporters SAO American, 250 Surat, a?d 100 r?rnambuco. April 19.?The Co'ton trade has not exhibited any mar. ket leature since Friday last. The imports have proved very large, and the market has had a tendency to droop, more especially as regards the middling and lower classes of American, which must be quoted |d per lb lower than they were previous to the arrival ol the Great Western. The demand during the three last days hns been tolerably good, atiout 13500 bags have changed hands, and the import* have amounted to 45050 bales. Corn?On the w holenur market basshown some symptoms ol improvement this month, but no very marked alteration has taken place in prices, (though they have had an improved tendency, and in some instances an advance ol Id to 2d per70 lbs has been realized. The measure, to he presently brought forward lor the admission of corn from the States through Canada, promisee to he of much importance in extending business. The bill is expected to meet with opposition in its progress through parlia. ment, but being a government measure, and one that will he supported by the free trade party, there is little doubt ot its passing without much delay. At yesterday's market, there were few buyers ol wheat, and the market generally was id per 70 lbs. lower. Flour on a retail demand was steady in value. Oats on a limitedsuonlv sod porte i th-ir previous value, and Oatmeal was somewhat cheaper. Other articles remained without change. Provitione?American?Since the 3d instant, the market lor Beef and Pork has remained very quiet; the sales made have baen at prices within the range of the quotations. New continues to he taken off on arrival. No new Bacon or Hums have yet arrived. At a public sale ot Cheese,on the llth instant, prices went lower Is to 21, and the market must tie considered dull at the quotations. The transactions in Lard have not been extensive; holders have taken a stand, and refuse to accept lower prices. The arrivals are to a considerable amount. A supply of Qr?ase Butter bas arrived, (or which the extreme quotation ia demanded. Rice?A few small lots of aecond quality Carolina have changed hands at the quotation-the business in this article has heendull lor sometime past,but there is ao change in prices. Tobacco?The sales since our previous report have proved extensive; about 1000 hhds. have mat with purchasers, (one-half oa speculation ) The business has. however, been nearly altogether confined to Kentucky Strips, and the prices obtained were a shade lower than our quotations Few transactions have been effected in Virginias Turpentine?There has been a better demand for Turpentine this week, and 1.600 barrels have changed hands in store at 9s per cwt. Ststf or Tasnic ?Lancashire?Trade i* still improving at Bolton,and ihe weavers are better remunerated I-ir t irir lat'or than they have been (or a considerable time past The bleach works in the town and neighborhood are all very busy. The woola-n cloth tradu, at Saddleworth, continues much inthesime dull state. The hatting trade at Oldham, Ashton, Denton. Hyde, Stockport, and their viriniw. a. is by no meant as brisk as ia iisuhIIv the case at this season ot the year. The silk trade at Middleton, Manchester, Leigh, Ac., continues brisk, especially fancy goods,, but plain sarcenets are not much inquired after, yet si Ik. dvert, warpers, and winders, are fully employed. The silk small ware trade in the same districts it very brisk, and masters cannot yet get good* n annfoctuted to meet their demands. MtscHiiris.?The arrival of the Qreat Western, bringing advices that the crop of United States cotton may probably exceed the larg- st estimate previously formed, had the efl-ct of checking the demand for yams, and buyers hav shown less inclination to enter into contracts for future delivery. Trices ar--, however, batter *iip;>orted than tber were a fortnight ago, and some descriptions, suitable for India, are in good request. The mercantile accounts from India and China, by last Overland Mail, do not seem ...7 upon lur iubikci, which, so fur mi manufactured good* are concerned, continue in the ume firm. study, and healthy state, in which it has been for the last three or four weeks, a la-Re amount of business being .lone, hut w ithout any material change in prices. Perhaps the demand is somewhat more general than it was a fortnight ago. There is now full employment for mo t operatives, and thoir wages hava been and are gralually increasing ; and we may hope, from the competition for hands which now exists, for some further improvement in the condition of our working classes Boltoh - Every week continues to add increased brightnessto the trade of this town. Counterpanes go on well, a steady improvement both in demand and price, and ?t the same time the weavers are, somewhat better paid for their labor than they have been for sometime past. Quillings, mtislins, and fancy good* of various hinds meet wi'h comparatively ready sale, and the mar. hets in those kinds of goods wear a cheering aspect. Cotton yarns have received no check inthe demand during the 1 st fortnight, but have rather improved. Founderies, both brass and iron, are extremely busy, and are employing manv more hands than they have done lor months past. The bleach works are all very throng of work. RocHDSLr Fl int l Mssxkt.?There bad been scarce1s any change in thi mai k>-t to-day from that of the preceding Monday About the same quantity of busineas has hpHU transacted, at prices nearly the same. Work begin* to h" more <earce. and some few mill* are running short time Unemployed weavers and workmen are on the increase. In the wool market there is no change to report, prices stationary, and demand limited. Lnst?The demand of the last tew weeks has very considerably reduced the stocks ol fine and middle qualities of goods in the (loth Halls, although there was not quite so much done in these articles this week as lor the previous few week*. There lias also been less doing in twevds, more particularly in low qualities, the stocks of which article are getting rather heavy, pnd prices a shade lower. Business lias not been quite so brisk in the warehouses we learn there is a little improvement in J roods for shipping, some good parcels having been sold for the American market. ilsLirsi ?Wi-have nothing new to notio" in this jr ar Vet either as to wool or manufactured goods.

The News from England.?Our accounts fru England by the Hibernia steamer are rather int< esting than otherwise,particularly the discussion nc going on relative to a new commercial treaty wi this country. The following letter, trom our priva correspondent, is interesting;? [ CorreipoDdaoce of the Herald.] London, April 18,1843. London, that is, the "West End," the very hea and front of the vast metropolis, has fallen into sy cope, or gone out of town. The far famed seas of London is, you know, divided into two very d tinctepochs, before Easter and after Easter; t former we have just gone through, and is disti guished chiefly for certain premonitory symptoms business and pleasure that are left to be fully dev loped in the more stately and important period v arc now arriving at. The " little season," it 1 m call it so, of this year has assumed to itself a gre deal more consequence than of right or precede belongs to it, or that it ever had before. Certain i fluentisl events have contributed to this, and t shall proceed to treat of them cursorily in due ord? Parliamentary business has been important and e citing?the opera has flared up in a moB' unusu and brilliant manner?the weather, too, has bee singularly fine; and the result iB that the "West Em has been better populated, and more animated thi the " Morning Post " ever recollects before. It very odd, and certainly very flattering to us yanke that "American affaire" continue to occupy so lar( a space of parliamentary notice in England. Tw or three weeks hack we had a splendid oratorical e fort from Lord Palmerston on the Ashburton treat; wherein the United States was the main subject ( comment; and the session before Easter has just cloi ed with anothergreat speech from Lora Brougham" still harping on my daughter." This last discours will, doubtless, create a sensation, chez nous. Th eloquent encomiums of the greatest orator of th age, so glowingly expressed, and so cordially receii ed by England's Lords in lull parliament assemblet cannot but make our American blood tingle wit delight, and our patriotic hearts heave with hone exultation as we read and rejoice in the great trutl and merited praises that Lord Brougham has ju thundered forth with Demosthenic effect. Our ai vaiiiiy, nidi nus undergone some hard hum liation of late years, will begin under such fine d clamatory puffing to swell up to its old proportions already I am inclined to think again that th rhymester was not far wrong, and that " We are, as we ourselves base voted, The most enlightened nation 'neath the inn." It is to be deeply regretted, though, that Lor Brougham should have so far lorgotten his ow dignijy, und the just deference due a person hole ing General Cass's late position, as to nave vente with such bitter malignity the coarse Bnd tu seemly abuse that distinguishes the recent ari unfair attack ol this queralous peer. The utte impossibility of Gen. Cass ever making defenc against this rude assault should have restrained th malicious ardor of this rampant orator?but let th worthy General and his numerous friends be coi soled; lor the only effect it produced here was disai tisfaction and strong censure; many were amusec not at the General's expense, but rather*at the ei centric and ludicrous capers of this political harlt quin, who goes skipping oyer the parliamentar stage, rapping with Ins oratorical lath every unluck back that comes in his way, and whether embroid ered, or plain, it is all the same. Lord Broughati is, unquestionably, the intellectual giant of his age in all things, law, literature and learning, he is, a Domice fampson would say, prodigious?and ye no one here; s|>eaks of him with respect; and his in ffuence, legislatiye or personal, would not procur the reprieve of a condemned torn cat from inatan drowning Why is thisl Let such conduct as hii towards General Cass, at once so undignified am unjust, be the plain answer?the simplest expJ&nj tion. Every true American must rejoice in the Entire ex culpat iftn of our great statesman, Webste*,-, from th< injurious accusatsons of diplomatic frsad that wer brought forward with so much circumstantial de tail, cs to be very generally credi'ed. Later infot mation has falsified these odious charges, and cot victed their author of wanton ir .slice. Truly has th poet said? Back wounding calumny th a whitest virtue strikes. One incident connected with this event is as fla terinR to Daniel Webat'-r, as it must be agreeable t the nation so justly pr'.ud of him; and noble it w> in the Prime Minis' rr of England to s'and boldl up in his place, a\,d in the fare of the House i Commons and o' all England, openlvund fearless to denounce t'.,ese degrading saspicisns of M Webster's ho nor, pronouncing at the same time a eulogium as eloquent, as time hasiiroved it was di served. Late trews from Austria makes favorable mei tion of c ur distinguished representative there. M Jenifer ?hiB official conduct is highly praised, at rumo', states he is making great progress in a cor tnet'.ial treaty that will lead to most advantageoi tes jltg. His social virtues that have made him i generally popular at home, have lost none of the | vivacity or warmth by being transplanted to a f | reign soil, uncongenial as the arid one of Germar maybe. In confirmation ol this we may mentir a brilliant ball he gave on the birthnight of Wasl inpton, uiKfer the auspices of the Princess Mette nich This is the first instance of such a file on th hallowed day ever known in Vienna, and is n< more novel than patriotic. It does infinite honor t Mr. Jenifer, and is a gratifying proof that amidst tfi pomp of the Imperial Court of Austria, he has ih grown insensible to the great events and stirring n i collections of hie native land. I would like to entertain you with a little goss about the opera that has commenced its couri this year with unwonted brilliancy. The high ran of the artists that have appeared so prematurely, th attractive materiel produced, and the marvelloi Hkilf and visor ol Mr I.nmlev ih?> tor, have equally contributed to thia? of iill whic 1 shallspeak more fully in my next. I will only ad< en/iauant, that your ci iirvant favorite, Fanny El aler, having settled har difficulties, bo recklessly ii curred, has been dancing here with considerab Micoese. She has had to contend with a young an beautiful rival, Mile. Dumilatre, horn Paris, bt still Fanny has decidedly had the best of it. Sf appeared lately in a new part, " La Giselle," ar certainly h?r performance was a triumph of at such as I beheve was never before seen. Itjustifii the wildest exaggerations of praise ever bestow* on her, and establishes for ever her lust claim to tf foreaiost plnce in her difficult art. nut more of thi another time. Sitntiav Recreations ? Hoboken is putting fort ail its attractions. It is one of the most delighlfi spot,! in creation. N'e w Brighton is also arraying itself in its sun mer garments. Belmont Ilall is a splendid plac and offers every attraction in the shape ol beaut ful scenery?pleasant company-and all the goc things of this world in abundance. Rowland's " Prospect Hall," and Burnham'sdi ligiitful and clartic retreat on the Bloonungda U omJ, are among the most agreeable suburban r< treats in the neighborhood of the city. 1' Aihival of Specie?An immense amount specie arrived in this city yesterday, llarnden tfc C brought on in the Narragsnsett from Boston ffl.lOt (W and arc to brinf on $700,000 to-day >o City Inspector.?It seems that the removal of " Dr. Griacom has been determined on We depre c&ie una veiv mucii, uui we suppose tne Doctor must le go, as it is not superior ability to discharge the duties of an office, but political considerations, whioh mi are the {qualifications in the eyes of the party.? 31 But we must say that if Dr. Griscom be guillotined, (0 we will lose the most competent City Inspector we to have had for many years. He has reduced the whole business of his important office to a great degree ot ie system and efficiency, and has opened up communications with the police authorities of London and he Paris, which were calculated to lead to the most IC- important and serviceable results in his branch of the In police of this city. Dr. Griscom is a man of great talent, and afforded ? the most satisfactory evidence in his last report of his competency to introduce many important re= forms, and contribute largely to the improvement of the sanitary condition of the city. His sugges= tions for the removal and abatement ol many nuisances?the Tbetter regulation of interments?the melioration of the condition of the poorer classes, ' and many other important subjects, were highly judicious and should be carried out. ise ta, Another fire caused by Sparks from Locomotive of the L. I. Railroad.?A destructive fire broke out on Monday morning last in the town of iat Islet, on Nicholas Patent, which destroyed wood to of to the value of $40,000 to $50,000, burning over a Iy space full seven miles square. There were from 1500 to 2000 cords of wood ready for market,{burnt, belonging to the inhabitants, which falls heavily on m them at thia time, it being their main dependence !f* to meet the payments on their farms, the inhabi>w tants of that section depending entirely for subsists tence on the fisheries of the coast. There should te be some law passed either to make the Railroad Company responsible for these occurrences, or to compel them to use the necessary means to prevent them. The burning of the above fire was the ' light seen from the Sound boats a few days since, n~ that caused so much astonishment. on is- Bishop Hughes and the Church op Sr. Louis or he Buffalo.?A correspondent, who prefesses to know, n- states, in nearly three pages, that the difficulty beof tween the Bishop and the Trustees of the church of e. St. Louis, has not been settled, and the matter reve mains in statu quo ante helium. Be it so. We state ay the same thing in three lines, wishing that our at Catholic friends would mix a little Christian love with this controversy?it will do it no harm.

It is ie an elegant affair. A Strike.?The sailors have [struck for higher wages. They get #13, but they demand #15. The n wages seamen get in the navy by the late law of ). Congress, has induced many to ship, which, toged ther with the activity of our merchant vessels has created a scarcity, which is taken advantage of. ? Concerts last Evening,?Signor Nsgel gave his e farewell concert last evening at the Apollo, to an ime mense number of ladies and gentlemen, not a few of whom, including many ladies, could find no seats, l' and were obliged to stand during the whole of the concert. Signor Nagel quite surpassed himself, and !* his violin discoursed most wondrous music. It conversed in as many different strains as the learned [. blacksmith can in different languages. His intron duction, at the close of the " Air from Anna Bole? na," of the tune of *' Old Rosin the Bow," with t Carious variations, excited enthusiastic applause. Mr. Dempster, Mrs Loder, and Mr. Timm, were ? received with equal applause. ' Mr Bradbury's Festival.?This came of at the I Tabernacle. We were astonished to see the multi tude present. There cuuld not have been leas than '- two or three thousand of the audience; and as to the 5 number of the little girls and boys, who were the performers, there were at the very least calculation - a little million of them, which no man could number.

Polios?The urgent necessity of so re organizing the Police system of our city, as to have a magistrate on the bench night and day, has been continually presented to the Common Council of this city, and we truBt will soon be adopted. On Thursday evening two men were arrested on suspicion of committing a larceny, and lodged in the Watchhouse, where they were kept until morning, when it was made fully evident that not a jot or tittle of evidence could be brought against them. This is one ot the many evils that have been made manifest by the stupid and illegal practice of committing men to the filthy cells ot the lock-up w*icii'iiui?coui uui vujf uii mere suspicion, wunout examination, and will continue to exist until a magistrate is placed on the bench at the lower Police office, to preside during the night as well as the day. The roost innocent, unoffending citizen may be arrested through the pque or|ma!ice of any person, or a watchman, and when arraigned before the Captain ofthewatch, if the complaint is adhered to, he has (no power nor authority to do aught else than commit him to a cell, which probably may be occupied by thieves, loafers and burglars. It is time a change in this part of our police system was effected, and we trust the new Common Council will consider the subject and adopt some measure calculated to produce the desired result as soon as they have disposed of the Bpoils of office.

He was found the night previous in the street, near by, in a helpless condition, and was taken into the house, and laid on a bed, where he died during the night.?

Alderman Jones stated that since the adoption of this sy stem of collfction of market rents the butchers had paid their rents daily, and the city had thus realized an income that for years past they had been unable to collect The resolution was finally adopted. Decreasing Watchmen's Wages.?The Committee an Lamps and Gas reported in favor of a reorganization of the Lamp (and Watch Department, compelling the watchmen to act as lamplighters, and also reducing their pay to $1 per night.

Cowperthwaite, from fine for violation of burial law, iniiaterring a dead body in the burial ground, corner of Chrystie and Houston streets, within six feet of the top of the ground.

Jlmvutation of a Leg?Dr. James C.Smith's bill was presented, amounting to $76, for making a great many visits, and also for cutting off a man's leg. Dr. Smith wanted to be paid. Alderman Waterman thought if it wbs proper to cut off this poor man's leg, then Dr Smith had not charged enough for it; and that the very cheapness of the cherge was evidence of something twrong about it. $16 was finally struck out and $6 inserted. But even at that price the mcmberi would not vote to pay Dr. Smith. The reao lution wm ultimately lost, and Dr. Smith (jeta nothing.

[Corr<*-|>uui1i'uce of the Her?U] Montevideo, Feb.'iti, 1S43. Important from Montevideo?Siege of the City?Interference of the French and Englith Admirals? *Jtie0ration of IVaehington't Birth Day, BfC. In my lust I believe I told you Oribe was about 15 leagues from this place and had advanced at the rate of three leagues a day?he has now been in the vicinity about a fortnight. Every day there are skirmishes between the opposing armies, generally in favor of Oribe. The party in power here in the city shoot every week some eight or ten persons, whom they suppose to be disaffected. A great many people have fled to the men-of-war here for protection, and numbers have gone to the merchants' shins. The Montevtdeans have built a pretty good wall about their city, and all the great guns they could procure they have mounted there ; in consequence Oribe will not risk an assault, but has set down before the city for a complete siege. Rivera, the Monlevidean General, has got himself in a nice dilemma?he took a great many precautions and succeeded in gettiug in the rear of General Oribe, but he has found that he (Rivera) is inferior in force, and now he is obliged to keep at ta distance without the prospect of being able to do any good, for he cannot lorce his way into the town. Already the consequence of the siege appears. Beef generally one cent a pound is now tour and five, flour and other provisions in proportion. Nothing from the country can enter the city; so it is impossible the city can hold out a fortnight. The party in power in the city are greatly alarmed; but still declare their intention of defending the city to the last, and have put in force a number of the most arbitrary laws. The U. S. Consul (Mr. Hamilton) andtani'ly have gone on board the U. S. frigate Columbia for protection, as their house is situated at the extremity of .the town, very near the wall. I wrote you that Capt. Shubrick had hoisted his broad pennant on board the Columbia, all the foreign vessels of war here saluted it. It was a grand sight, on the Anniversary of Washington's birth day, to see at 12 o'clock, the Yankee ensign at the foremast ol every man of war in the harbor, all one after another, saluting the Columbia and the schr. Enterprise first. Crowds of people came down on the Mole to witness the novel sight. No ship hauled down the American ensign until sundown. The English and French Admirals here have made complete fools of themselves. They sent word to the Buenos Ayrian Admiral (Brown,) who is here with a small squadron, waiting an opportunity to co-operate with Oribe, that if he fired a shot into the iown,or lfhe did not get under weigh within twelve hours, and proceed up the river, they would sink hi?i, and to intimidate him,moved three of their heaviest vessels close to him. Brown sent back an answer that he would not move] an inch, and that he would fire on the city whenever he pleased, and as tor sinking him he was ready at any moment. He immediately beat to quarters, cast loose his guns, and got everything ready fur action, j The English and French Admirals, hnding they could nut frighten Brown, left him to do as he pleased. The English and French have landed all their marines to protect the lives and property of their countrymen The number of French residents here are very numerous, and they have armed themselves tor their own protection. The Muntevidean Minister protested against this, and said that they should give up their arms?the French Consul replied that they could not, as it was necessary for KT .?,i,?. i....? r.~: ItlCi pi WlVl/HUU V/l "IV llfVO VI lllllllOtl?VO Qllu *? ** lies.

The brig Juatina, Capt. P. W. Shepherd, sails for New York to-day, having on board John Christian, late steward of brig "Escalus," of this port, accused of Tan attempt to poison Capt. Philip It. Stanhope, of said brig, bound to the coast of Africa. It appears by the evidence that the prisoner did not wish to go to lhe|coaet in the brig, and had demanded his discharge, which Capt. Stanhope told him he could have, if he would procure a substitute.? The brig had been undergoing some repairs, and on the day in question the crew had been employed hanging the rudder; the Captain had a sore throat, and ordered a little molasses and butter to be stewed, which was done by the cook, the steward providing the materials. After the medicine was brought to the Captain he took a couple of epoou tula, and bet the cup on the transom. About noon?the Captain being then in the cabin? tiie steward came down and again demanded his discharge. The Captain, as betore, told him he should have it, provided he got some one to go 111 his place; otherwise he could not go. The steward left the cabin swearing he would nave revenge ; then went to the galley and complained to the cook?tellingihim that if the Captain took him to the coast one of them should not come back alive. About 2 o'clock, having got the rudder hung, the Captain went into the cabin prior to going ashore, and taking up the medicine, took two spoonfuls, and found it had a very nauseous taste?went on deck with it and calling the steward, asked what wa3 in it The steward said, nothing, sir; but every one else could taste the bitterness. On stirring it, a shining red stuff' could be seen in the mixture, and the Captain immediately went ashore, but was taken sick and vomited Ireely before he got ashore. It was analyzed by a chemist and feund to contain a large portion of red precipitate. Thus much for the evidence. The mate and cook are also Bent home by the Consul as witnesses. Business is very dull in Bahia. Flour selling at 16||000 per barrel, lor Richmond ; 14||9<>0 lor Baltimore. Stock in first liuuds, about 4000 barrels Sugars scarce and high. Naval stores no demand, and prices low not realizing cost. Chairs ditto, domestics ditto. 1 send you a letter sheet price current of 14th March, from Rio. We had a very exciting time of it yesterday. An English brig laden with coal, having called in to ascertain the state of the market, was about to proceed to Rio. After your clearance in the Brazils, there is a guardship to examine you after you are under weigh, to examine your papers, crew, fee. The Captain ol the brig undertook to go out without the visit from the gnardship. He was fired at, and brought too. The next morning he was called on, and was required to pay #2 tor the shot. This he refused to do, and being under weigh, he proceeded to go to sea. This was not so easy though, as he had but little wind and a strong flood tide. They blazed away at him from theguardship and the fort, firing some twenty shots, and then sent a gun boat after him and brought him back. In bringing her to, the Brazilians having chatge, t hey went too near an old hulk that lies there dismantted,and her anchor caught the brigs topmast backstays, bringing the foretopinast down bv the run. They then anchored her, and took the Captain as a prisoner on boatd the guardship. He was dismissed the next morning by the influence of his consignee; but will have to pay all damages. The expenses, it is supposed, will amount to above $6(K), a pretty sum to pay for obstinacy. Yours, very respectfully. Mosr or tiik Wasacjs Couistv MusDiea? Scrroscn Asntsr or thk Mi-sots*** ? It has been heretofore stated that, although Mr. Parke had a large sum ol money (several thousand dollars) in the house, of which part waa in specie, not a dollar of it waa taken ; and that the only plunder obtained was the money of Mr. Caatncr, prabably some U or $300. This ia sow accounted for in the following manner .? After murdering the persons down stairs, and riding the rooms there, the ruffians proceeded to the sleeping room of the maid servant. On opening the door they found the bed clothe* thrown off, and aomc article* of female dress dropped on tbe floor, as though the bod-room had been hastily left. They concluded at once that the woman had ascertained what was going on, and had fled through another door to give the alarm, and they immediately betook themselves to flight. A* a matter of fact, the maid had Irft her room in a hurry, without making it up, esrly on Sunday, to pay a visit in the neighborhood, and had not yet returned. Sunday night waa very rainy, and tho roads, therefore, on Monday night, that ofthe murder, were very wet. This seems, providentially almost, to have lurnished a clue to the murder?for on strictly examining the premises around Mr. Parke's home, it was found that a wagon had been driven from there through a hy road. The track was followed, an accurate measure being taken, along tha route,of the tire, and of ita indentations, until it led to the house of one Charlea Coleman, on whose premises a wagon was found corresponding entirely in width of tire and other marks. i oirniHn iwno nm iwrn in rseu* Jersey State ptison lor counterfeiting) waa immediate ly nrre*tcd, na wa? another mm, who on Monday had been ?een much with him, named Joseph Aulila, a ?ort of race courac loafer and (rambler.

One ol the first points which came up, was an item of $13, to be paid to Messrs. Kipp and Brown, for stage hire, to carry the grand jury about on a visit to the various public buildings. Supervisor Smith thought it a needless eapense to hire thesestages a dozen times a year for the grand jury to make this tour. Supervisor Jones took the opposite side of the question. The subject was referred, to be reported upon, together with various other items. The bills ot thi various Police Officers, lor services reudered 'on time," ranging from $3 to $1.75, were presented from the Comptroller, and relerred to the Committee on Criminal Courts aud Polico, consisting of Supervisors Woodhsll.

This Board has power only to audit and settle accounts "chargeable to tho county" No matter how rqultable the claim may be, we have not the power. Every man who may be prosecuted, and who may be lucky enough to get an acquittal, will have Just as good a rignt to come to this Board lor the payment of hia expenaea.

The next bill was to pay Jacob Hays $160; which waa the sum recovered against him by David Oould, Esq , for au assault and battery on him while in court. Mr. Hays now asks the county to pay the bill. Referred. A resolution wan here introduced, to abolish the payment of salaries to the present collectors of taxes, leaving it to the future Board of Supervisors to pay the future collectors whatever they please. This resolution was adopted. A resolution to pay D. D. Williamson, the present comptroller, $3,909 66 for extra services of clerk hire and commission ol one half per cent for receiving and paying out the taxes of the year 1942. The clerk hire amounts to $776 73, and the balance is claimed lor the other service. The Mayor opposed the appropriation, on the ground that the Board of Supervisors had no power to make it. Their duties were alone to audit and pass upon bills ren. derod, and any person having claims could racoverthem by a writ of mandamus, if this board refused illegally to pay thsm. Aldermen D&vics and Unnxawooo advocated the pay ment of the bill. After considerable debate the resolution was laid on the table for the present, and the Board then adjourned to this (Saturday af ternoon) at 3 o'clock. Circuit Court, Before Judge Kent, May 6.?
