Tub i.atk Anmvkrsariks?Tlie anniversaries of the past week have now come to a close. They have been characterized by two or three very striking features. The first is a spirit of intolerance exhibited hy some of the clergy, which is as anti-christian as it i? opposed to good taste and to that kindness and cour tesy which should prevail in such public festivities Christian societies like these should combine their forces against sin and wickedness, idolatry and heathenism. But instead of that, what do we see 1 Why, such men as Doctors Beecher, Tvng, Kirk, Patton, and others, expending nil their strength in arraying one portion of the Christian church against the other. It is not Christianity against sin and heathenism, but it is Protestantism against Catholicism. If such Doctors of Divinity as those just named feel such a spirit of hostility against the Catho lies, we insist upon it that they should not make these anniversaries the occasion of giving vent to their spleen and their exacerbations. Dr. Beecher is the leader in this crusade against Popery, as he calls it The success of the Catholics at the west seems to have stirred up his ire and his bile. And every time he visits the east, he comes down brim full of wrath aguinst the Catholics?talks about the Pope and the potentates of Europe combining together to overthrow the liberties of the country and establish an ecclesiastical hierarchy upon the tuins?and all such absurdities. We can tell Dr. Beecher that he is quite behind the spirit of the age?he is behind the times. The great mass of Catholics in this country are, almost to a man, the most violent democrats there are among us. Ecclesiastical hierarchies are not made of such materials?they never ppring up from democracy, but from the aristocracy. The course taken by Dr. Hughes, in this city, has also contributed in no small degree to provoke this exacerbation against th* Catholics. And we must tell all these gentlemen that these railings and backbiting* are unchristian, out of place, and cowardly, j because the party attacked is never present to defend himself. We are willing to believe, however, that this intolerance and unchristian abuse is not encouraged nor countenanced by the societies of whose anniversaries these men have taken advantage to vent thejrprivate animosities. The next feature to which we alluded is the "Social" extravaganza that has been perpetrated by the Fouri"rites, Brisbane, Greeley and Company. They have held their first anniversary, and given nn incarnate shape to Fourierism. Its incarnation has at last taken up its abode, out at the Sylvanian Domain, under the auspices of Horace Greeley and Albert Brisbane. As to the doctrines of the Association, we have reported them very fully during the past week, and in a variety of aspects. Of these the public can judge for themselves. It is needless for us to say that we look upon them as the wild imaginations of a recluse?idle theories, that can never be reduced to practice?visionary?chimerical?Utopian. It is c alled liberty. But the very idea is a solecism, upon its face ; for they take society in a state of perfect freedom, and immediately put it into harness, regulate all its movements, and compel it to work by rule, even to the matter of cooking and washing. They take up human society, and attempt to work it out, just as you would a problem in geometry, by lines, angles and letters. in nrc|*rui iu mc iiiru, iiic uiuirri'iis ui mis bwu* ciation, the authors or believers in these new social doctrines called Fourierism, we know not how to convey any correct, adequate id"a, of their true character. They seein to be the extremities of humanity, the vagaries an entricities of religion, the absurdities of political econ y, the monomaniacs of science?excommunicantsfrom the church, fanatics, enthusiasts, speculators, dreamers, and drones. Fourierism is a sort of universal solvent, in which the most heterogeneous and discordant materials lose their identity. Tn one of thefc meetings you may see the followers of Robert Dale Owen and Fannv Wright sitting side by side with the devout believers in even the Oodship of Jesus Christ?the negro gentleman walking arm-in-arm with the fur white lady?high tarifl Clay men shaking hands wiih free trade Van Buren men?50,000,000 Biddle Bank men, w ith hard money Benton currency men. In short, in Fourierism all extremities are swallowed ** up, and all identities lost. They originate in the antipodes?some have their birth at the equator, and some at the poles Here, on the one hand, is a religious hot-b?*d fanatic, who believe-' that he is of one blood with Jesus Christ, and perhaps Jesus himself? hp goes for Fourierism because in that he can work out the problem of having all things common as the primitive disciples did ?the common stock principle just suits him. On the other hand, there is an inveterate infidel, who does not even believe in a God?he is opposed to all aristocracies, either of wealt or pedigree?he goes for the largest liberty?thinks every man has a right I to his share?he is what is miscalled an agrarian?he is a leveller, an equalizer; he goes for Fourierism because he will thus get his share of the earth, and of the things therein contained. Thus it will be seen that Fourierism is a universal solvent, in o which you may throw all the discordant, heterogeneous elements of human society, like the ingredients in the witches' cauldron?the whole is to be well stirred up and shaken?some abracadabra, or other cabalistic word is to be said over it, and, presto, a Sylvanian association rises up, liken ghost, from the departed ingredients. We had intended, in this connection, to say a word of the abolitionists and their anniversary, but they constitute so insignificant an ingredient in the *icauinron.wnere rouriensms originates,that w shall not drag them from their merited oldivion. It is enough to say of them, that at the last election they threw 75 votes ouloi 1^,000, which were given in this city. Fhom St. Domihoo.?Capt. Sturtevant of the schooner Independence, arrived at Holmes Hole on Friday, 18 days from Gonaives for Boston, re. ports that the political condition of the island continued in a very unsettled state. The revolution hud broken out anew, and a reinforcement of three regiments of troops was daily expected to arrive at Gonaives from Port au Prince, to march against the city of St. Domingo. Later from Rio Janeiro.?By an arrival at Boston we have received news up to March 27th. Mr. Ellis, the British Minister, was to leave soon for England He would carry the terms offered by the Brazilian government, to be further consider* d in England One of these stipulated for the admission of Brszilian coflee into England for consumption, upon paying 25 per cent ad valorem. The Prince de Joinville had not arrived, and was not expected very soon. Tjueperanci. Tea Party ?About six hundred ladies and getlemen assembled at Washington Hall on Friday evening, for the purpose of celebrating i anniversary of the Lady Franklin Society on the tee total system. ?.1) was a brilliant affair .? -v - m - 'mm <?* #>* m . - ?tir iMlllj r"?Meeting at tli? National Hall, Saturday, 0 A. M xi,if society held another meeting to day at the Nationol llall, which, by the way, is now very handsomely fitted up for public meeting!. We did not hear the commencement ot the discussion! this moi ning. The ru were some thirty or lorty persons present, a few of them females. The first we heard was the inquiry from some one?"How are the proceedings of this meeting to come out I" Mr Whiting answered, that he did not know, nor did he rare, il any tiling did not come out at all [One of the little boy s of the Society here kept up auch a crying, together with the noise of carriage! in the streets, and '.ha hammering in a blacksmith's shop, that we could hear hut little that was said.] I don't want to pass any resolutions at all. [Here Mr. Brisbane came in and took his seat.] I have been connected with many of the various associations of the day, but I do not think I hare got much freedom iti them. Mr. Murray, tho man ol hair, here arose, and spoke as I follows:?1 object to taking authority lor truth. Yon must lake truth [pr authority. We have had se many resolu iion* passed?we nave nan so many great names?we have had so much influence?and ol course it must all be right. No w, I am glad that thus far there has been 110 voting at all?no suffrage. 1 go lor a new order of things. [Great crying of that boy.] Here Mr. Godwin got up and spoke. I believe man should do as he would he done by. And until man arrives at that point there can be no happiness. Governments must also act on this principle, or rather we shall not then want any government at all. I ask this Society to give us some plan of operation. The fact is, you have no plan or system. Mr. Brisbane has given us a plau, or rather Mr. Fourier has done so. Mr. Brisbane said?1 am about bringing out a plan shortly I have Deen unwell, and my time haa been other wise engaged. But 1 am now going to give it to the As. sociation. In the meantime, we must convince people that society is ail wrong?we must make them abhor it as it now is, and then tney will be prepared to embrace our rystem. Dr. Brooe said he had no plan to submit, and asked Mr. Brisbane for his plan. Mr. Godwin was saying something in reply, when the pretty Mrs Rose interrupted him as follows :?It requires many years of study to gat a plan- let us go on and stu. dy, and find out in our own minds. If drreish n desire among ui to investigate this subject, let us fir?t get a suitable room vere we can meet togedder and discuss dis subject. I myself have a room which is large enough to hold every indevidyal who would like to attend. Meet dere, say once a week. Den perhaps some odder person will offer s room where we can meet next week. Let us get togedder and discuse de subject. 1 do not myself see de nee.l of any plan My friends, let mo impress upon yaur mindsdc great responsibility which rests upon jou. Our discussion will affect future nations yet unborn If we desire to enter into a community, let us see if it is simply to get rid of some of our troubles?to live on our friends. Dey tink dey are about to enter paradise at oace. We don't want to woruk for idlers. 1 now want as many of you as are willing to go for reforum and a better state ot tings?I r.-ant von to rise up?to shtand up, and let me see how many of you drre are. fl5 males and females here rose up] Very well. Now! want as many of you next Monday evening at 8 o'clock, lor de purpose of reforuming society?of foruming a community?nnd organizing a plan to establish a community?I want tou to rise up. [About half the same number rose.] Very well. V.u will come accordingly. Mr. HolbsCk, a young Englishman, here made a short address. We don't want to form a society for the propsgation of certain principles We want a society to stimulate inquiry, and when you have set men's minds to work, thi n truth will be discovered. I want no plans submitted. I don't go with Fourierism. I go for agitation?1 want an agitation society. My own notions upon social reform arc changing daily ; and the reason is, that new facts are being discovered. I have seen all this tried over and over again in England. Don't adopt any system?go for agitation. You may, if you choose, form a Central Board he ra in the city of New "York. You may send out lecturers ? and correspond?and get facts from "all parts of the Union. Dou't adopt Owen, Fourier, nor any other one. Make yourselves an agitation society. Agitate?that is the word. There is no use of hurrying in this mil. ter. If there are any correct principles upon this subject, they will be" brought out by agitation Don't discuss plans, that is premature, but'discuss prin. ciples. Owen goes for community without individuality. Fourier goes for community with perfect individuality. Dont go with either?we've tried all these things in England, and you never saw nor heard oi such a state of up roar and confusion, and discord,and anarchy as was tin re produced. There is no use of trying these things over again. I have been once bound down in the social trammels, and I hove no desire to come under bondage again. Form a central board if you choose, but adopt no plan. Mr. Hknrv O. Wright, of England?I wish to state some principles on this subject?I cannot for myself say that I believe the present state of society is a false one?I have an idea in my bosom?I love it. What is society? It is an expression o! man?of what we have been, and of what we are. That society which ia established is an expression of man, and should be respected and reverenced. There is a new scriDturc developed for us diiect from the Deity?wc must live out the idea. In one the revelation come? in the word "agitate." Well, what comes of it7 Look at the discussions upon capital punishment. What comes of them! Thtrcisa prerequisite inquired, that is the truth. To get the truth we mutt be true. Jesus said, I am the truth. We must become Jesuses?we must be some the truth like Jesus. 1 am n man?I declare my manhcod, and noone shall dare to interfere with it. Will you hind me down to certain formulas? Must 1 brush my boots by rule, and my coat by tormula? The chief entlof to ciety, thereforei is to sutler man to be developed as an individual. Suppose we agitate, what then??wemav accept theopinions of an Owen, or a St. Simon, or of a Wright ? but it is no evidence that we are agreed. The truth will brush away the darkness of logical sophisms. We can never be unfolded except as men and us individuals. Mr said something about its requiring all the men and woman on the earth to make the men. 1 believe in steam and locomotives, and in the piston. 1 believe in love. I see factories, &.c. audit makes tne miserable. I am ready to hurst with love. All these things make me active. 1 have been engaged in these things for some 1J years, and now I want to see the rails laid down, and the locomotive got ready?I want to see action, not all tolk about love, be. 1 want to do something?we have had talk enough?let us have a plan and go to work. Here our friend with the hair, Mr. Mi sstr, of the Vermont Telegraph, rose to speak. ! go dead against all creeds. T have been six months freed from all creeds. Dontt talk about sitting your cars a going till you have got the rails laid down. Your creeds must be false. The meeting here got into so much confusion, all talk, ing together, and no hearers, that it soon broke up. We were informed that this society differs verv widely from Brisbane b Oo.'s Sylvania Association, or from Fou. riprism- This society go> ? for romrnunitv without any distinction between mine and thine?while Brisbane, Greely, Channing, and the Fourierites go for Community with Perfect individuality ?the rronertv rights cf mdi viduali being recognized." Thi? explanation in necessary in order to understand the alovr report. Tjik Home.?The authoress of "The Neighbors," has achieved such a reputation by that excellent story, that her works are sought after as eagerly as those of James, Buiwer and Dickens, or even more so. We have received from the Harpers her second work, "The Home; or, Family Cares and Family Joys," translated by Mary Howitt, which is published as No. XVII. of the "Library cf Select Novels." Price one shilling. Tfiai. op Louisa Wilson For the Murder or Hkr Hushano.Elish a Wilson, Concluded ?Judge Whitman said a verdict ought be taken in prisoner's favor, or a nol. proa, might be entered. Her coun el preferred a verdict. Judge W. expressed to the jury similar views to those laid before the Attorney General, and also that the prisoner was entitled to a verdict, as it will be a shield from any farther prosecution for this alleged offence. The jury retired to their room, and returned after an absence of ten minutes. The clerk called their names?Louisa was required to stand up and raise her hand The interrogatory was put, "What say you, Mr Foreman, is Louisa Wilson guiltv or not guilty of the murder of Elisha Wilson!" "Not guilty!" was the reply. A woman of finer sensibilities and of polished education, would, in such a trying moment, very likely have sunk down upon her seat, and burst into tears. But the expression of these two welcome words, operated differently on Mrs Wilson. 8he received it with a quirt, buthearly laugh; nol a simper, merely, but a laugh in which the whole face participated. Aftersitting down and becoming sober again?as some thought would possess her mirid she would again and again indulge in that hearty, entire laugh. It did us much good to see ilu- perfect happiness that had taken possession of that countenance, where but just now was expressed unqualified wretchedness. Confession?Mrs. W. says, that, 011 the morning I I of the murder, she has no doubt she was awakened I (as she always stated) by the blow that killed her husband. She started up, hdH discovered his head tossing about on the pillow. She spoke to him hut he did not answer. He did not tweak after she awoke. She started from the bed, and "lit a Then she saw that he had been struck, (with the pole of the axe, she has no doubt, as she saw it in the room, and it could not be found afterwards) and I that the door, which was closed the night before, w<8 open She ran to call Benjamin Wilson from the oilier part, when, as she reached the entry, as she partially turned her head towards the stairs, she saw Thorn standing on them. She at once said to him, "You have killed Elisha." He gave her a 'hat frightened her still more than she was before, and threatened her, if she ever told, that fie would kill her, and that she would he considered equally guilty with him, if found out, and they would both he hung By this means, he compelled Iter to return to the room, and assist him to cover up the blasting evidences ol the deed.?"

The coroner was called at a late hour on Friday diP night, to examine into the circumstances ol the aly death ol a man named John Logan, aged 2fiyeni9, thi a stone cutter by trade, who has recently resided at 139 Sixteenth street. From evidence it appeared ^ that Logan caine home to his dinner about noon on gu, Friday, in a state of intoxication, and his wife fear- ?< ing his abuse when in that situation, took her chil- ,|1( dren and left the apartments that she occupied to go fro to a neighbors. Logan becoming excited from tins * J! fact, started to go down stairs, and fell from the top or to the bottom, when James McGuire, the landlord of the house, raised him up and set him on a bench- ?ui Logan then enquired for his wife, and McGuire, for jh* the purpose ol quieting him, told him that she had nP, moved uway. ivlcGuire then left him, and went to m? the lower part of the city to attend to his usual busi- coi nese. Logan soon left the house and went into an ne| adjoining yard, occupied by workmen in the employ we ol McGuire, and commenced quarrelling with a Jrman named John Farley, brother-in law of McGuire, and Terrence McGuire. Farley, who is a man of immense strengili, seized Logan by the arm and Ro leg and pitched him into the street. Logan then on, picked up two paving stones, and threw one at Far- hit ley and tqe other at McGuire. They then rushed ce. upon him, pushed him into the entry of the house, sal and kicked and jumiicd on his iierson. He then *c' rose, went into the house and returned with a pair a.Ul ol tongs and a brickbat, and threw the latter at ihe J)?,1 head of McGuire Then commenced a general aj brick bat warfare between the parties, Logan on one side, and McGuire and Farley on the oiher. Farley wi threw two bricks, one of which hit Lngan on the b? side, and another in the back, between the shoul- thi ders, which knocked him down, and he never rose wl or spoke afterwards. A post mortem examination wl of thp body was made by Dr. Charles Lee and Dr ??Eldridge Wheeler, who gave as their opinion, that g?' deceased Had died trom concussion, produced by a Rri blow trom a brick bat The jury returned a verdict ,.v "that deceased came to his death by a blow from sip a brick thrown by John Farley,during an affray be- *a* tween deceased and said Farley, and that Terrene e lpt McGuire is implicated by aiding and abetting taid th* Farley in the affray." ne Farley and McLuire made their escape on tlie CUJ same evening. and have not yet been arrested.

The plaintiff married the defendant's metherseve- Ba ral years ago, and the defendant came to reside with them cit; about the year 183f> or 1830. There was proof on the part Ail of the plaintiff that a contract was entered into be. pai tween the parties that the plaintiff should pay for his 1 board. On the part of the plaintiff it was contended that, im inasmuch as he was a minor, no contract made by him wl would be valid or binding upon him. It wns also con- pri tended that a stepfather was bound to maintain his slop- lis son,audit was further urged, on the part of defendant, Da that plaintiff at flic time he married defendant's mother, jui obtained the use of a considerable sum of money belong- of ing to the defendant, which was willed to him by bis gri grandmother, anil that, at all events, the use of that money all was a sufficient set otf against the plaintiff's claim For the nlaintitrit was contended that n stepfather was id not obliged io support his step children,unless ho chose to m.. do so : and furthei. that the contract of a minor was valid and binding upon him for necessnries. . flis Honor told thti Jury that a contract made by u minor for necessaries (and board came under the head of Jj( necessaries) was a valid and binding contract, and the w '' plaintiff might well maintain his action upon such con- 011 tract: and if from the evidence they could come to the rp conclusion that there was a contract either express or "P implied, they should find a verdict lor the plaintiff. His Honor also told the Jury that a step father was not in ge- m.? neral hound to support his step children. Some evidence ai" had been offered on the part of the plaintiff that the board ''el was of an inferior description, and that the deft had while on he lived with plaintiff, been obliged to serve him in the ?n capacity of an errand boy and otherwise, and that such |01 services were sufficient for his board. His Honor said that if the Jury believed the boird was of an inferior descrip- sin tion, it would amount to no more than a reduction of da- c mages, and with respect to the other fact, it amounted to no more than that the boy's mother sent off messages, r,j' which was quite natural. The main question for the j iry to deride, was whether there was a contract between rPC the parties that the defendant was to pay for his board, or !iai whether, as wns alledped on the part of the defrndsnt, , that there wns an understanding between them that lie #1" wasnot; if the Jury believed there was a contract, they f01 should fin J for pl'ft, if on the other hand they beli?ved Len there was an understanding Iwtween them that he should, not pay, then they should find for defendant. 3!

When the negro, binson, returned to this city, Dowden gave to hint two e.bundreil-doilur treasury notes toi>a?s off?nromisinsr n one half, or one hundred dollar*, if lie should sue d. The negro made several iiutlectual attempts to 1 them. Hit having treasury notes, which are now trco in this city, excited the suspicion ofsome persons, J he was watched. Tuesday last, the negro stnd Dowi met in the Centre, or Marsh market house, in this y ; and Dowdeu whs observed to taae from his pocket etter, and to write on it with a pencil, and hand it to t negro?who took it to Mr. ttpice, upon whom he lited. The letter was written with a pencil, and signed njamin Camballe, jr., requesting Mr. Spice to say nong about the two one-hundred-dollar treasury notes, licit the negro had asked Mr. Spice to exchange, and itch had excited Mr. Spice's suspicions that there was nething wrong?either that the notes were countert, or that the negro had stolen them. We snake the tementthat Dowden gave the treasury notes to the m0 man, Robinson, on the negro's word?which is not idence against a white man. But tbe negro's word is pported ny the evidence of respectable persons, who w Dowden give to the negro, in the market-house, the lerto Mr. Spice, requesting him to say nothing about 1 treaury notes ; by other circumstances ; end by the gro's story being a very strnight nnd connected ono. \ll the notes, w understand, had been cancelled et a stom-housi -Boston, we believe?by a small mark, or riceiling ii,>n ; but had not received the large mailt ally to be put upon them at tho Treasury Department, le small hole made by cancelling them, had been nectmended with treasury-note paper; and, further to md the hole, a name hud been written over it, on both > face and beck of tho note. The following are some of s names written on tho tace and back of the notes :? James Coxe, Benjamin Cambellc, |r., John Tyler. The me of John Tyler is written on the back of the note inriably?by which we mean it is not written on thefnee iny note?and probably the main object for writing the tsident's name, was to make the note current, without utlniiing it, to see it had been endorsed by a proper responsible person. It was proven to the satisfaction :he magistrate that these names?or at least a part of m? had been written by Dawden. The magistiate mmitteil Dowden to prison, with the understanding it lie should be liberated when he gave bail to the iouut of $1,600. No person in this city offered to bail n ; and his lather-in law (Mr. Clements, who resides at idenshurg, Md , about six miles from this city) was it for, andcamc here last night, and bailed him. We >. informed that Dowden has been married between two d three years, and has two children. He ig raid to be a tiva of the West; or, at least, he came from that Jirecn when he came to this city. He was General Ilarrii's private '.secretary at North Bend; and carai-on to s city before the General did?perhaps before or soon pr it was ascertained that the General had been elected si lent of the United States. We mi ntion this not lor i purpose of casting any reflection on General Harrison any ot his friends, hut solely with the view of enabling wden's frionds (if he now has any) to identity him, ive property, pay chnrgns, and take him away ; for the ,nf tlmjilr (obtm ia ctiflirtnnl In mola ? <-??.

The stealing of the treasury notes may decided to be only a " breach of trustbut we can oot how a court or jury can get around the forgery. 1'hi re are rumors about this city that a large amount has n abstracted from the Treasury; but we can bear of good grounds to base them on, as the notes remaining the treasury have nat been counted.

Attorney orinii'i Barker and Messrs. Reynolds and Bon we 11 were el! three engaged in a very important case, which was to be argued that evening, and the court had to make a new ap|>oiuiineiit for the examination ol Attorneys Mr. Stephens. Mr Jatnes T. Brady and Mr. Gilbert were appointed a Court of Examiners The hour appointed for the examination was 1 o'clock, A. M , but by the time the names of ilie applicants, which amounted to about 300, were called over, and the preliminaries lor the examination arranged, it wits five o'clock. Mr. Gilbert commenced the examination by asking the question, "How were actions divided!' The answer was "into civil and criminal." The learned examiner continued to examine upon that branch of Ifgaljuris|)rudeHce for about twenty minutes; alter w Inch he took up the subject of the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, and the duties and responsibilities of the Judges and inferior officers of that tribunal, and continued his examination lor half an hour. He was followed by Mr. Brady, who examined as to the antiquity ot the office of Sheriff, and the duties of that officer. The learned gentleman next examined in detail the mode of prosecuting and defending suits at law, and Mr. Stephens, closed by n searching examination into the incidental proceedings ol litigated suits. The examination concluded ubout 8 o'clock We are not altogether pleased with either the examiners or the students. Our fit8t objection is, the class was too numerous, and, necessarily, the questions put to each of the candidates were like angels' visits, few and far between. Our next objection is, the examiners did not, in our judgment, strictly carry out their instructions according to th-ir spirit and meaning, and we allude particularly to Mr. Brady, who, to use a legal phrase, was too fond ot leading the witness. On the part of certain of the students there wasa great want of method and clearness in their answers, which evinced a great lack of legal and technical language; a id there were others of them who could give no answer in any language? but upon the whole, the examination was rather creditable to all parties, and perhaps the failures which we found it necessary to notice, proceeded rather from the weakness ot their nerves than the thickness of their heads. The examination lor thp admission of counsellors took place in the Circuit Court, and commenced at 5 o'clock precisely |Tlte Hon. Mr. Browne, member of Congress, Daniel Lord, Jr. and llaight, Esqrs were appointed Examiners. Mr. Lord took the centre Feat: Mr. Brown sat on his right, and Mr. Haight on nis left. The latter gentleman commenced the examination on the general principles ot law and continued it for half an hour. He was followed by Mr. Browne,who examined on the subject of dower and widows. This gentleman put some vent knotty questions. We recollect one he put to a fat portly gentleman, who sat at the head of the class. "What is the meaning of damages in dower1?" said the. examiner. The fat portly gentleman had to give it up. It was passed to the next, and so on until it ran through five sr six, but they all had to give it up. Mr. Browne then fixed his eye on a gentleman he thought he saw in one of the river counties, who he said must know something about dower, but he said nothing about widows. The question was put to him, Mr. Browne kindly adopting Mr. Brady's plan, and it wns answered. After Mr. Browne had got through, the examination was taken up by Mr. Lord, who began with the alien la\v,and to de the gentlemen justice ihey peerned to be quite at home upon that branch of the subject. The learned examiner next passed on to the law of corporations. "What is a corporation?" said Mr. Lord to a young Blackstone from the West ? "It is a fictitious man, sir." said young Blackstone "No sir, it is mi artificial i?erso?," said the learned examiner. We did not distinctly hear ihe nsme of this person when called, and lest we should be guilty of a misnomer we will say nothing more about it, except that we recollect he sat next to a gemleman who wears a big O. to his name. Mr. Lord tv in the U. States, and finished with the general law of tenures and eontiogentremainders.and iheirtkill and knowledge in this difficult branch of law surpassed our most sanguine expectations. After the examination was concluded, Mr. Browne addressed the audience?He said he f? It exceedingly pleased with th?*general answering of the candidates. That himself and his learned friends were fast falling into the sear o<" the yellow leaf (although by the bye, we thought both himself and his learned friends were now in the prime of life, and full vigor of manhood, but be that ns it may, he said so,) ami in the course of human events, we shall shortly be called on to render our Inst accounts, and to go to that bourn from which no traveller^ returns. It was truly gratifying to himself and his colleagues to know that whenever that event happened, there were so mvnv gentlt men (ully competent to fill their places with honor to themselves and advantage to the public ? The Honorable Member continued to say that the profession of the law was the highest and trust honorable of the learned professions, and he hoped th?gentlemen who had somuch distinguished themselves this evening by the research ana industry displayed in their answers to the several questions put in the course of this protracted examination would continue to uphold the honor and dignity of the profession. It was true, said the learned examiner, that this noble and useful profession had been often disgraced and brought into disrepute with the public, both by the ignorance and knavery of men not qualified either by nature or education to appreciate its beauties or its usefulness; men, who availed themselves of its advantages, and used them for their own base and selfish ends The honorable gentleman continued at great length, in a strain of impassioned eloquence, to descant on the beauties of legal icience, and the great satisfaction nnd advantages to be derived from it, when properly understood, ar.d concluded by exhorting the candidates to a strict attention to the interests of their clients; and in nil cases to a faithful and honorable discharge of their professional duties. Although there were several break-downs amongst the candidates in the progress of this examination, yet we cannot say we are intolerably out of humor with them. The answering was in general good, and several of the gentlemen acquitted themselves verv crodilithlv It mav he considered invidious to meniion names, but it would be injustice to oinit mention of the following gentlemen: We could not help admiring the sell-possession of Mr- Ik-eley, the ease and grace with which he kept his seat, and the tact and readiness with which he gave his answers. Mr. Dan Egan, of Wall street, distinguished himself by the correctness of his answers. This gentleman did not miss a single question. Mr Earlier, ol Chambers street, displayed considerable research and knowledge in the moet difficult and nbslnise pait of law learning, and the last, not least, VIr. Philip Mnrat Joachimson was armed at all jioiiitfl Hy-ihe-bjc,. we forgot?there is another, a fair haired youth, whose name we could not then learn, but we afterwards ascertained that he vras the son of a respectable widow lady, residing on Long Island. This young gentleman distinguished himself m an especial manner. The quickness and off hand manner in which he gave his answers, displayed an uncommon degree of industry and intelligence. From all these facts we have no doubt that there will not he any lack ol black letter learning or forensic talent at the New York bar for the next 20 yenre. Br.ooDY Exkcution of Lynch Law ?The New Orleans Bee of the 3.1, gives an account of the cold blooded butchery of Mr. Adams and brother, of Covington, by a band of 20 armed men.

Imjiortant Benevolent Preachings?Parade of lite Military?Cararolet of a Hone?Lute items. Dear Bennett:? This proving a rainy day, and I being therebv nre vented from pursuing my usual avocations, I know not how I could better while away an hour, than by Riving you some brief account of what is going on in'this city goodlyof monuments. The perusal of your excellent journal, on a day like this, has been to me a source ol great gratification, and has much tended to dispel the " blue devils," ? to me a concomitant ever attendant upon a dismal day?and if I can at all pretend to judge of the avidity with which your paper is sought for here, by that which I experience, I can assure you that there is not many miautes suffered to elapse from the time of its first arrival, to its being in the hands of every one?certain it is,that it is sought after here with the greatest eagerness, and is read by all classes and conditions of society. This day, friend Bennett, has been set aside by the Calvert Beneficial Society, for their contemplated celebration of the landing of our pilgrim forefather? on the shores of St. Mary's, at which place the anniversary was last year commemorated?and a most unlucky day they have pitched upon?dark, dull, dismal, and pouring rain, with no prospect of its clearing off. Their intended procession this afternoon. is, 1 presume, of course knocked in the head. This 1 regret much on account of our citizens, but more so on account of the president of the association, C. Soran, who with a vanity so common to young men of his age and condition, had so set his whole heart on cutting an extra swell 011 this ucuuBiuu ; nr v*m irnru, uuwcvrr, wnen ne grows older, that "there is many a slip between the cup and the lip." John C Le Grand, Esq , our present worthy Secretary of S ate, is to deliver an oration before the society this evening at 7 o'clock. A very amusing incident took place during the parade of our military a few days since, which, could you have witnessed, friend Bennett, you would nave cracked your sides with laughing?the very thought of it almost throws your present correspondent into convulsions. The circumstance was this:?A gallant Colonel of one of our infantry regiments, not being a very good rider?not beinn born to "witch the world with noble horsemanship," was desirous of obta ninga well-trained horse, and at the same time a showy one, for the parade He managed to procure "just the thing," from an equestrian company now performing at our circus. The animal, asthe Colonel rode him to the parade ground, proved the beau ideal of a horse," to the mind ot our hero. He was completely deliehted, and availed himself of every opportunity of riding up and down the line, for the purpose of showing him off. Well, the regiment was at length formed, and about starting, and so far the Colonel got on swimmingly, and was already congratulating himself on having made so judicious a selection, when, all at once, the word " Match" was given, and the band of the regiment striking up, the horse, ever mindful of his circus training, and totally forgetful of all military discipline, as well as a becoming regard for the dignity of his distinguished rider, commenced his accustomed cadenced gallop round and round a circleNo effort of the Colonel's at the rein could make him diverge from the oft beaten track. In vain woreth<? reins pulled?in vain the Colonel used every means his ingenuity could devise?but all to no purpose?round and round was the unfortunate Colonel carried, nolens volcns, making his appearance for the first time in the character of a circus ijder, in which be was eminently successful. The.amusement of the by standers knew no bounds. A space was soon cleured around him, and it was only Hlter the band of the regiment had got out of henring that the animal stopped his circuitous course. How the Colonel overtook his regiment, 1 know not, but he was forced to dismount, greatly discomfitted at thus being made the laughing-stock of the hundreds who witnessed this grand military and novel exhibition. I understand that the celebrated correspondence which has been in progress for some time, between the Marquis of Gordon and the Baron Pigna'eili, is now in the hands ot our distinguished fellow citizen J. P. R , in preparation for the press. A great literary treat is expected. When it appears, friend Bennett, you shall receive a copy. 1 must now close, having doubtless wearied you, before this. In tny n-xt, I will give you an idea of some very queer doings now going on in this city, and introduce t? your acquaintance Borne very distinguished characters, who have never yet appeared on any stage. Good by for the present James. Augu-ta. [Correspond nee ol the Her&ld.j Augusta, Ga. May 9, 1S43. Mk. Benneit? Dear Sir : ? Augusta, as you well know, is a beautiful city?the climate is fine, warm, nice and healthy?the ladies (Heaven protect them!) are gorgeous in the extreme?the gentlemen are hightninded, hot blooded, smart, clever and industrious rascals; and the southern country, take it all in all, is agrcat world. All this is partially attributed perhaps to the extensive circulation of the Herald here, and its general reading by all classes, including a porti?n, of course, who do not pay a red cent tor the paper. This class are justly termed " news suckers."
