NEW YORK HERALD. in j- .?- ? - -? - ~ ? ' ? w Vork. Friday, Ah*m? 11, is43. All lettera on business with this office, and Tominonications intended for insert.on, must be addressed as heretolore to James ('jro??p: Bennett, ditor and proprietor of *he New York Herald. Ti:k Cask of Mrs Giljiju*.?We were last evening, by the politeness of Mr. llapeljea, informed of the tact lha! he had just received from Washington, the warrant lor the delivery ?f Mrs Gilmour into the hands of Mr. McKay, the police officer who apprehr nded heron her arrival here. She will accordingly be conveyed home lor trial. The case is thus definitely settled, >md becomes a preced? nt in all fu. j lure similar cases. Progress of Surgical. Sciknck in Nk'vv York.? A case occurred the other day which is remarkably illustrative of the rapid prof reps of surgical science in this region, and the singular tact and dexterity which some professors of the scalpel inanilest, as well in operating ou the minds as the corporeal carcas-es of their fortunate patients. For the benefit of the present generation, and the races which are to come, and actuated by the purest anxiety to give all due publicity to the triumphs ot an important science, we will give this case a place in our chronicles of the times. .An Irish laborer who had been employee' on the Croton M| leduct, and lo?t his health, whether from hud workand|ihe miasmata of the swamps on the upper part of the IsUnd, or devotion to the bottle, we arc not informed, applied for advice to a tolerably well known surgeon and physician, who bungs out a shingle in a very respectable street in this good city. " What's the matter with you, my good fellow!" asked the Doctor, in a tone in which condescension and dignity seemed to struggle for the supremacy. "Troth, your Honor, 1 came to you to Bad out that," said the invalided Hibernian. " Show me your tongue," said the Doctor. " Here it is," said the Irishman, and he thrust the rebel organ out of his mouth, till he got black in the face, while the surgeon stared at it through a pair of gold barnacles with an air of the most profound mystery. "Now let me feel yourpulse, 'continued the Doctor, and pulling out his watch, he very attentively counted the pulsations. " You hare got a severe pain here," said Galen, and he poked his forefinger Hgninst the patient's stomach. " Yes, your Honor," paid the patient. " It's a had cose," said the Doctor, shaking his head. "It is," repeated the Hibernian, with h*H eyes considerably well opened. " Do you know what's the mat* teil" asked the Doctor. "Anan," said the terrified patient " Well then," said the doctor, looking as grave as an owl?"my poor man, I must Mi you. that the palate of your stomach is down!" "Good Gou'" exclaimed the poor Irish man, "youdon't say so, doctor?oh! musha, I'm a dead man!" "Oh! no," said the doctor, with an encouragiug smile. "Oh ! no?i can cure you " ' Oh ! the blessing of rhe Virgin and?" broke in the Irishman. "How much money have you got!" a^ked the doctor, cutting short the pious aspirations ot his patient. The Irishman's countenance fell somewhat, as lie replied?"I've got a dollar,sir, and three small] childher." " Well," said the doctor, rising and looking very stern, "if you bring me five dollars I'll put the palate of your stomach in its place?but you'd better get it done soon if you wish to live any time." The Irishman daggered home as well as he could and related the doctor's opinion to his wife. "Well Pat," said she, with the ready devotion of het sex and her country, " I'll get the five dollars." She started that day,and with a child in her arm* begged for a fortnight till she collected the doctor's fee. The poor Irishman then returned to the doctor's office?paid down the money?and the doctor, with an infinite deal of ceremony, deliberately proceeded to make an incision on the chest of his victim, from the sternum to the ensifjrm cartilage?cutting, of course, only the skin. A few straps of adhesive piaisier were then placed on the wound, and the patient dlJJliiS9e(l Willi itic consolatory uasuiuiicr, delivered with a gracious Binile, that he waa now quite well, and "the palate of hia stomach returned to its proper place." This ib the veritable report of ,a recent case. It in not to be found, however, ia "the Journals." But it ib too good to be lost. " There are more things in Heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy, Horatio." North Carolina Congkkssional Election.?'The returns are not yet complete from North Carolina, but those we have received authorise us to sum up ?? follow?:?Elected, J.J. McKay, democrat; A. H. Arrington, democrat; Kenneth Rayner, whig. The Raleigh and Halifax districts are somewhat doubtlul, but we think General Saundera and J. J. I>anie! (both democrats) are elected. New York Cleansed by the late Deluge.? We have now had a six day's ra'.n, and our streets &re washed clean. It may appear incredible to those travellers who inspected our thoroughfares a f ortnight since,but we assure them it is a fact. The gutter* are so destitute ot filth and garbage, that scarcely a solitary hog is to be met with. Vegeta lion oi uu Kinaa lias Deen greatly Benefited Dy the copious outpouring of the " windows of heaven," nnd the organ oi the Fourierites has been putting forth additional excrescences. Disasters Effect of the late Heavy Rains.? A sentlernau just arrived from Greenwich Point, Stanford, Conn , informs us that the late rains committed iiwlul havoc amongst the poultry in that vicinity. Five promising chickens and three geese which had just attained respectable maturity, who had taken shelter under a brush near his residence M ere drowned. A great many geese got a good ducking in our streets yesterday, but we have not heard of any bein? utterly extinguished. Skat of Government in Canada.?It is now rereported that this long agitated question, will be referred to the decision of the Legislative Council. Since the union of the Provinces, the preponderating power will be decided by the members, returned from either of the provi nces. Those ol the upper contending against the interests of the lower? or vut vtrm. Parliament are expected to meet for the despatch ot business, aboHt the middle of September. Death of De. Akrain.?Robert Adrain,LL. D, formerly Professor of Mathematics of Columbia College in this city, died early yesterday morning at New Brunswick, in the year of his age.? Tt?e cause ol his death i* attributable to a congestion of the brain. He will be buried this day at 1 o'clock P. M. Dr. Adrain, as is well known, was pops?t>8ed of extraordinary powers of mind. As a mathematician, when in the full vigor oi his intel lectu&l faculties, he flood unsurpassed in this country. Nathaniel bowditch, now also deceased, who was Ins intimate friend, and who could appreciate the abilities of others, alwuyo tpoke ol those of ])r. Adrain in the most exulted terms. But Dr. Adrain was not distinguished only for his vast researches in mathematical science. He was also a fine cIhsbic scholar. and a man of general literature. As to his conversational (?owers, they were c.f a very high order. Those who knew hun can bear testimony to his wonderful fund ul anecdote, and frequent sullies ol wit.

"Nioojrs" in Canada.?The Virginia Minatrels everybody ha* heard or dt sued to bear, with the singular music which they produce from their bone instruments. Their fame has gone into Canada, and their anticipated arrival with the great equestrian company of Rockwell and Stone, throughout the Upper Province, was hailed with a strange enthusiasm. Some short time since the agent of Mes-rs. Rockwell and Sione, who usually precedes th?* compan y some da) s for the purpose of hiring ground lor the erection o! the Pavillion, but more especially to procure a licence from the supreme official or "select men" of the town in wUich the exhibition is to be given, made his call for that purpose upon the Mayor ?f Toronto, who is, no doubt, a liberal of the fir?t water in that loyal Province. The dignified civic official, knowing as all do know, the respectability ol the equestrian company for which the application was made, consented to give the licence, but to the astonishment ol the agent, a condition was imposed which would detract greatly from the interest of the performances. The truth was, the " Virginia Minstrels" were to be placcd under a ban?their music was to be suspended, or as many bar rests introduced as would give them time to get to the next place of exhibition, and their dances were to be regular breakllnU'na nr In Ki? hrr\lritn rtnutn VMil mtif pi/HahIa I - -I - *"? - "v?v???nil. i v.- liuimit the Irish if you please,"|said hie worship, graciously, "but I will not all?w any exhibition which shall mimic the nogroes?poor inoflensive citizens. I have no objection to burlesques of the Scotch, or the English ; end either John Hull or Sawney can aftord much amusement, but the colored population shall not be travestied." Well, what could be done 1? The agent had no alternative hut to take the licence with such restrictions, for the route was arranged, and the truupt on its way. At the appointed time, the company arrived, the pavillion was erected, the performances commenced, and the audience came ? and they came in myriads ; but groat was their disappointment, for there were no " Virginia Minstrels" Murmurs were heard, but the managers were held blameless, lor an inhabitant of Toronto, who was cognizant o( the truth, had betrayed the secret. The population got excited?they called upon the managers to produce the Virginia Minstrels, and undertook to hold them harmless; the managers, however, were unwilling to do aught which would appear '.ike a defiance of the authorities, and therefore they compromised the matter?the Virginia Minslrels appeared in check pants, white roundabouts, and with clean faces, and thus tlipv ?nvc thpir mnsi.v anil sans " Dance, boatman dance," and other sours of a like character, to tlie infinite delight ol the Provincial#, and without a violation of the injunction of the sapient Mayor of Toronto. A Chance fob Literary Loafers ?A circular has recently been ist-ued by the University of the State of Missouri, to which our anxiety to procure bread and butter for the numerous starving men of letters in these regions, induces us to give additional publicity. The curators of the institution have organized five professorships, embracing ethics, metaphysics, mathematics, classical studies, aud the natural sciences The object ol the curators, in announcing this fact to the public, is to invite applications from literary men for the supply of these va cancies?the elections to take place on or before the first Wednesday of S*ptember next. The Seminary's fund of $100,000 is invested in capital stock of the State Hank of Missouri. One sixth ol the dividends will furnish the salary of each professor, provided that said sixth does not exceed $$33 per annum, although in addition to this, five dollars for each scholar will be appropriated to each salary. The University is situated at Columbia, Boon county, near the centre of the State; it will be peculiarly under the patronage of the Legislature, and its future prosperity must be commensurate with the progress of the State in population, wealth and intelligence. Temperance Pic-Nic Parties?We do not know any more agreeable mode of advancing the good cause ?f temperance than by these delightful pic-nic parties which are so fashionable- juet now at Boston. They give the ladies?always the most efficient friends of any cause?ample opportunities of exercising all their poxvers of persuasion, and " Irresistible eloquence of eyes." As soon as the raiuy season, which has just set in has terminated, it is contemplated to get up a number of pic-nics on the temperance plan here. " Woodman Spake that Tree !"?One of the most interesttrg objects in this city is the venerable pear-tree at the corner of Thirteenth street and the Third Avenue. It is at least two hundred and fifty years old, and was imported from Holland by the renowned Governor Stuyvesant. It still flourishes in all the glory of its green old age, a^d doubtless will long outlive the present generation of Gothamites. It is guarded with religious care by its present proprietor, Mr. Snyder, who very kindly presented us yesterday with a fe% of the pears which it produces. We were profane enough to eat one, and can vouch for the delicacy and richness of the fruit. Thank Heaven, the good old tree, is not the only vestige of the first settlers of " New Amsterdam!" Railroad and Steamboat Accideht?Every body knows that the verdict after these catastrophes, uniformly is, "no one is to blame." After a recent blow-up on the western watere, a survivor, who hailei from the land of wooden nutmegs and other " notions," proposed the following very judicious resolutions:? Resolved, That nobody's to blame but the biier. Resolved, That the biler knew better than tew go on a bust. Reswlved, That we reckon it got just about what it deserved for blowin' up in such a iscowragcous manner. The Lebioh Canai. ? On Saturday last, the water in the Lehigh Canal was drawn off entirely, and all the laborers discharged. So that the connection with the mines at Mauch Chunk nnd its vicinity is I entirely cut ofl. It is said that the civil and military authorities of Easton, steadily refuse to interfere, and thus the mob of boatmen are enabled to hold their position against any force which the company may be able to send against them. (pj- Py pisiecript to the Toronto Herald of the 7th we find thit the jury on the death of Thomas Skinner and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery, returned a verdict ol " willul murder" against Jimes McDermott, for the former, and the same verdict against James McDermot and Grace Marks in the Utter caie. McUii.l College, Mont**al.?From the Cana da papers we learn that the McGill College, Monfreal, will open on the 6th of September, for the Matriculation of candidates for the beuefit& ot the great bequcet many years past, designed for such un institution, but which by litigation, has not come into operation in the hands of the Governors, unti of late. From St. Croix ?By the bns? Hyder All, ten days from St. Croix, West End, we learn that the small poi was raging in some portions of the island to a great extent. Freights were dull. The Th?l or Dowor.x at W*?hi:?oton.?Thia caae of- , cnpicd the whole of Tueaday (iiecond day).

Thia witneaa wia a rlerk of thirty ye?r? (standing.

Mr H ick, bar keeper at Bonlanger'a, proved a connection between Dow den and the negro, Fielder Robinson, end the tranafer of a piece ot paper from the former to the tat ' t?r; alao th"t the negro subsequently relnrnod and han- i ded tone money to Dowden.

It i* not believed that he wu a participator in the actual robbery, but from having poncision of the stolen $1000 note, there if no doubt of hi* knowledge of the guilty parties, and unless he can make proper account for fuch potiession, stale piison mutt be hi* retting place for a teuton. Mr. Samuel Shaw it entitled to much praite, for hit promptitude in giving information that led to the arrctt of Ruthworth, and to him alone it lull credit due for rendering tuch enential service to the bank and the community. Hebe came casually acquainted with Ruth worth out a few weekaaince, while the latter wat on a viait to thit citr, and it it a fortunate result for the bauk that the ttoltm note had fallen into the hnnda of an honett and conscientious man, whose station in society will render his testimony to conclusive us to secureconviction. Should reward be tendered, which we helivve, waa ottered at the time ol the robbary, attrviceof plate should be presented to him by the bank oh the conviction olthe arretted party. A Patriot in Di>tbej?.?An elderly man, named Holly Green, a resident of Westchester county, known us an active veteran among the American troops at the memorable bnttlet of Lundy's Lane, Chippewa and Buffalo, made application at the Upper Police otiice yesterday lor the), ter from the storm, and food to nourish a starving body: lie itated that he had anplted at the Alois House for aid, but being a reiident of vVettcheiter county, the rules of the institution prevented him from receiving it. He was taken care of by the humane keeper of the Upper Police j and will be tent back to hit own county. Truly i?ay ho j exclaim " Republic* is ungrateful." Rah. Road Acci?eni ? A collision took place between two trains ot cars on the Harlem railroad in the upper part of thp city yesterday, which terribly frightened the men, women and children who were passt ngers, but injured nob >dy nor nothing,save th > w ood work of the cart.

Allerman Pubdy Raid ha thought the (election of n . small few of those holding office, m order to mike a re- I d action ol their salaries w*< entirely too partial, us union:; them he perceived many ot the moat humble iu > the gift of the corporation if mch a movement is to l>e made, he hop> d the committee would review the whole tiody of persons holding office, and not mark out a select IV w for that purpose. Alderman Waterman said that as several of the appro priationi were expiring, it was necessary that some ac j tion should be taken at once. Aid rniin Lee was in favor ot separating the appropriations trom the reduction ot salaries, as he was ready to vote lor any necessary appropriation desired, but was not so ready to support the remainder of the ordinance. The reiortaiid ordinance was then read, aud the following section* adopted : ? Sac-1. No olhcer employed by the Corporation under a tiied salary, shall hereafter be entitled to any extra compensation for any extra sei vices, which he shall bo required to perform l>y any resolution or ordinance ef the Common Council, Uaard of Supervisors, or Board ol Health; unless provision is expressly made by suoh resolution orordinance far suh extra compensation. Sec. 3. All bills hereafter rendered tor services and materials to the Corporation, for which no rate of com pensation shall be established by law, shall be audited only at the current rates of prices lor like services and materials wh<n furnished to individuals. Alderman Pubdy moved that the following section be struck out :? Sec. 3. The offices of Deputy Health Wardens are hereby abolished, and the duties heretofore performed I y such officers shall hereafter devolve upon the Street inspectors ef the several wards. Alderman Scolfs moved that the ordinance belaid on the table. Alderman Cmmasi said that the abolishment of the offices of Health Wardeus, with a salary ot $100 per vear, 1 was beginning at the little end of the stick. He was for taking hold ot the big end, and commencing upon more ; important relorms, by making a general movement for I retrenchment. Aldermnu Funny (aid he wm opposed to the abolishmcntofthe office ot Health Warden in his Ward, as he knww his constituents would not sanction it llderman Lee expressed nsimilar^opinion. The motion to strike out was adopted by the followjr g vote:?Ayes, Alderman Martin, Emmans, Tardy, Waterman, Brevoort, Hanson and Lee?7 Nays, Alderman Nash, Brady and sscoles?3. Hhe following*section was than takea up: ? Sec. 4. The lees received hy the Keener of the City Prison shall hereafter be taken and accounted for by him u part of hit salary, as allowed by law; and if thefres so received by him shall not bo equal to the amount of such salary, he shall only be entitled to receive from the Corporation the amount of such deficiency. Alderman Kmmans moved to strikeout this section. Alderman Pi'iinv objected; he said that be thought the Common Council had the power to fit this salary, and il it it not enough, he was in favor of increasing it, but he thought the fees should be p?ii into the public treasury. Alderman Lee said he was decidedly opposed to the section, as the fees received would not f d five or seven hundred dollars, and the responsiu*.... of the office were so great that this amount was not more than sufficient Aldermen Scolei and Witkiuh advocated the adop tion of the section. The motion to strike was lost by a vote of 4 to 6. A1 dermen Martin, Kmmans, Purdy and Lee in the allirma tive. Aldermen Nash, Waterman, Brevoort, Scoles, Bra dy and Hawson in thu negative. The section was then adopted by the same vote. Alderman 1'vrdv stated previous to his vote, that he was impelled to oppose the section because bethought that under the State law the sheritf would claim the fees, and he should therefore move for a reconsideration, if in the majority, in order to obtain a legal opinion. Alderman Waterman stated that the counsel of the Beard had given a legal opinion, assenting to the position of the committeeThe following section was th?n adopted Sec. A. In all purchases of oil hereafter to be made, no price shall be paid for casks, but the same shall he returned to the persons from whom such oil shall be purchased, and in all bills for oil an express allowance shall be made tor casks returned, and all estimate!) and contracts shail be made with reference to such allowance for returned casks. The succeeding section was then taken up:? Sec. 6 The offices of Engineer to tho City Prison, Cliixf Engineer ot the Water Board, Inspector ot Pavements, Superintendent of Stages, and Assistant to the Board of Health, are hereby abolished." Alderman Lir. opposed the abolishing the office of Engineer of the City Trison, r? he believed a boiler-burstingblow-up would lollow, and destroy the cnurt room of the General Sessions, rs it was placed above thu engine. Alderman Watkhmus said, he thought the oilier of Steward of the Prison was more useless than that of Engineer, and therefore he moved to amand by inserting (Steward ot the Pri an in the place of engineer. This motion was adopted, and the section as amended then passed, with two dissenting voices. The folt?wing ?e jtiou was then lak<>n up r? Sac. 7. The Attorney to the Corporation shall beentitied to receivc from the city treasury, onlytho aumof two thousand dollars prr annum, besides the clerk hire as allowed to him by law; and which shall l>n hi lull lor all ncrvicea performed by him for and in behall of the Corporation. Alderman Emmaiss moved to strike out, which was lost by a vote ol ft to 5?Aldermen Martin, Kmmoin, Purdy, It asou and L?e in the nlfirmative, and Aldermen Nash, Waterman, Brevoort, Scales nnd Brady in the negativs. Alderman Siot.cs moved to lay this section on the table, which was lost by a vote of 4 to 6. Alderman Lrc moved to strik* out arid loy on the table, which was adopted by a vote of 6 to J. The lollo wing section w us thi n loken up:? Sic.8.

We have the s - c rul Jay ' proceedings of the trial o( Wy moil and Brown, for embezzlement and larceny of the laud* of tlie Phenix Bank, utCharlestown, Man., before the Middlesex Common rieas, now sitting at Concord:? On the meeting of the court on Tuesday morning, I Judge Allen, in reference to tin pending motion, requir. ing uie iirosecutiou t? elect the count ii|<on which it wu intended to proceed, laid that he thought it not advisable ' to decide it until tlie trial had reached a more advanced ''.age. i The indictment was then read to the jury, with the exception of thelliird and fourth count*, which wire not )irun'd the prec. ding day, because tliey weie not accoin (tallied, liUe the other* against W. and B.,wib charges ..gainst Skiuner as acce-Bory. Io opening the caae for tin) prosecution, Mr. Huntington said under the cunie ol financiering, it hud become a i regular huKintsK.Jeveii with men oi high standing in thu I community, to cheat, to defraud, to steal. In the caie at j the bar, the whole property?the entire capital of the I'henix Bank hae been fraudulently appropriated by the I defendant*, through the means of consummate contrivance and long continued and singularly adroit deception. The bank was chartered in Ib3-J, with a capital of $160,1 ...I I Wv mull an mahii.f- In lU'lXthH C.HIlilal WOI IU creased to $.100,(X'O, and Wy man wai made president,with a salary ol $2000 pel annum, which, in 1830, wa* raided to $3(H>0, in conit qnence of u loud ra 1 which he had received from a Boston hank. The itockhtlder* lully assented to this increase, with the express undemanding tLut he should devote hii time and talent* to the interests and concern* of the bank. They suppost d they were dealing with on honest man ; and they placed that confidence in him which the biuluess of lite require* that man should place in hislell w man. In the tame manner win Brown trusted and contidi d in?Hist as atelier, and subsequently us ac-tshier, an office which he held up to the moment of tkeeiplosion of the bank, about the 1st ol October. Tte boo*s had been so kept that the most i-kiliul accountants were unable to detect the embezzlements a* they were committed from time to time. Up to the month of October, IBtii them was no suipicion of fiaud, or even mismanagement. But the delondant c'id not at thut time, nor at any one time, go into the vault* of the bank und take out the (.100,000. Wy man began by small sums ?perhapssome $15,000, and thus the entire absorption wus a work of time and degrees. Such small sums could be covered up by Mr. Wym in?even $30,000 could be, so great were his resources and high his cradit; but when the defalcation amounted to $3 >0,000, he broke down under it. Yet he proposed, with nothing but trash in the bunk, to pay a dividend ol three per cent Irom the earning! of the bank for the preceding six months ; and no suspicion was entei.ained ol him. But Mr. Hurd, a director, intimuttd a purpose of examining if some ol the director* had not been allowed to borrow upon too little security, and Mr. Hunnewell followed up the suggestion | by say inn tbat the examination would be u very thorough I one. Wyman staggered under the announcement; ami at last wag driven to exclaim?" The trulli must come out. The hank is ruined. Tlio capital of the bunk i? all gone." An investigation commenced immediately, and Mr. Wymau produced the unpaid note*, unaccepted checks, and overdrawn druf'sol Messrs. Stanley, Reed &. Co., to the amount of $3t>8,00(1, only $40,000 ot which ware secured. Some ot this paper had been regularly discounted at the hoard, by the recommendation and advice of Wyman, who represented the firm to hu safe, sound and responsible hey ond ail question. Another portion ot tho loans to ?., R. & Co. had not received tho approval of the directors, and bad never recorded on the books of the hank. They were gent rally demand notrs, or checks on banks, iu which S , R. St Co. hud not u dollar on deposite, and Wyman knew there were no lundslo meut them.? Hence he never presented them tor pay meut, and this he lully, unreservedly contested to Messm Hunnewell and Hurd. Here wi s the great outlet thiough which the bunk was defrauded. To prepare for the final critis Mr. Wyman had unquestionably fabricated papers. The evidence, Mr Huntington thought, would demonstrate this lubrication beyond a doubt. That he had exhibited to the directors one statement, contuiniug a special entry of treasury notes, while he handed them another afterwards lor signature in which the amount of treasury notes was not especially indicate.]. Ill other words he had boldly and adroitly substituted one statement for another, and imposed upon the unsuspecting directors, who signed the lubricated statement. This was the April statement iu 184 j. They now knew that dbcovery was impending over them, and tlicy made a grab, which scraped the vault*, of the bank hare, between April and October they took ovt-r $200,000: between these periods the demand notes of Stanley. KeeU&Co. rose to the astounding amount of $*i/>.000. Yet alter the discovery of all this, he proposed to keep the bunk open; he proposed to pay the dividend out of his own pocket, rather than there should be any disappointment in consequenceof the advertisement annouueiag the dividend.? By this proposition, he designed to betray the directors into committing themselves i>y co operating In an act of consummate deception. Could he have involved the directorsin the final act of this deep diamaof fraud, he would have shilted the responsibility of the ultimate ?xplosion Irom his shoulders t? then*. But thuy were honest men, and promptly rrjected the invidious advice, and r.-solved to stop at once. Mr. Ilnntington now admitted that Wyman had probablv neither committed perjury or forgery, and that he abstained from issuing statements of the condition of the bmk alter 1*39. But as to Brown, he had signed and sworn to the returns of the bank to the office ot the Secretary of the Commonwealth, when he must have known the nature ofthe securities held by the bank. They were iu bis custody and keeping, and all the mmceuvrts end contri. vancesin relation to them could not have been carried into effect without his knowledge and uniiorm assi?. tance. Th? first witness called was John A Bolles. Esq., Secretary of tho Commonwealth, to testify to tiie returns nmdu to his office from the Phouaix Bauk. 1 Mr. Hun'ington put In the return for 1885 to Nor. I&t9, | iigtied by Wyman. From that period he omitted to sign the returns. In Sept., 1841, Brown signed and twoie to a return that contained an entry that the "debts due the hank, unpaid and considered doubtful, amounted to $767 IScts." The account of Stanley,Reed & Co. at the Bunker Hill Bank, Irom April 1st, 1841, to Oct. 1st, 184.2, during which period their checks were in the Phenix Bank, to the amount of $45,000, on the Bunker Hill Bank, when they hud no funds thtrein. Their account with the Shawmut Bank, from April, 1841, to June, I 42, showing no balances, while they had deposited checks on that bank inthe Phemx to the amount of *39,000. In the afternoon, Mr. Huntington put in the records of the bank, commencing with the first meeting held under the charter, 183:2; and covering the period embraced iu the indictment, and proving the clectioc of Wyman as | cashier, and as director and president; and of Brown as . teller, and afterwards cashier. In one of the votesof the directors, recorded in 1832, it > is provided 1 that no credit shall be given to a delinquent, whether as a promisor or endorser." Also, th'ta committee ?f the board should examine the condition of the bank once in six months, and mako a written report thereon: Also, the cashier, during any recess of the board, might grant discount, by and with the advice and con sent of a director; Al?o, the cashier was directed to report all unpaid notes, checks, he., within three days after they became due to the board; Also, to enter on a book all applications for discount, with dates and amouuts; Alio, on every discount day, to furnish a list of all discounts made by the bank, whether due or not, paid or not, orover due or not. At tho time these votes were passed Wyman was cashier. Mr. Hunne well testified to soir e details a* to compensation piid at difl.-rent timis t?? President Fisk and to MrWynu?n, whose salary was finally fixed as $3000 per nuuum in l&W, and so continued up to tlie explosion last October. Mr. Hunnewell testified that he had been chose* acting president on the Monday following the failure,and had since passed over all the assets ol the bBnk to the ui ceivers appointed by the Supreme Court. Witness hud been a director nine years, and at the time of tho blow up : owne i 34 shares in the hank. The day before the explosion he deposited **100 in the Hamilton Bank to the ere.lit ol the Phronix Dank. At the time of the blowup, had in de|>osite $1700. Was not present nt the meeting ol the board when a dividend was declared, based upon the supposed round condition of the hank. Mr. Wyman a*ki?l me why I did not attend the meeting, and told ine they had declared a dividend of three per ceat, and that the earnings were something over $111,01)0 Ho asked me if I did not think that was doing well, nud 1 said it was. He told me that I had been appointed on a committee to niakn the semi-annual examination of the hunk. I proposed to he left otf the list of directors, as I had not been able to pay proper attention to the duties of the oltlcc. He fuid I had better not. On the alternoon of the .10th of September, I met Mr. Hurd on the < ommittee. Mr Wyinan produced the usual ti .ii,ko papers, and < xliibited the list marled "H." It is a schedule, in Wj man's hand writing of mere figures. It was brought forward by Wyman to assist us in examining the notes, , in the trunk, which had been regularly discounted at the oank. I said that it was probably the last examination 1 should be ':oncernrd in, and I wns di?liosed to muke a more thorough one than I had ever made before. I wanted to know what the directors owed, and the securities of their debts, including my own; and also the securities of oth> r debt*. I asked lor some i uled pajwr lor the purpose of making the necessary schedules. Miforecooimi ncing my entries we went partly through Mr. Wyman's list ol figures, till we came to a place checked, where corresponding notes w?renot in the trunk, having been sent out lor collection, as I supposed. We also counted several bundles of bank bills. There were $7ti ,0'Mi in I'iicnni x bills in one bundle ; $2J,0U0 ditto in Knottier, au>i HI,'mo <1 ittu in another, received that day from the Hamilton Bank. Mr. Wymtn waa anxiotti to liavu tha examination ol rp. cic, Sic , f.nithnd that night, ao that the caahier could go on regularly with tho buaiiihm on the next, or Saturday morning- We found a bundle, of Tr?aaury note* on Indiana, fur H WO, which the committee were not aatiafled with. Mr. Wyman aaid they were dupo*lted by a cuatomer, for a powder company. The cuatomor wan to make good any lo?i which might occur in thoae notes. There wai bIpo f'W,7U0 of the broken Franklin Bank billa ; alao, a quantity of counterfeit mid foreign uncurrent bill*. The whole amount of ipecie and bank biila, good and bail, which we had ex araiiif.i up to inilnight, Sept. 30, wa* $1 Ml,071 3 ceatf. On Haturday aiternoon, Oct. l,wn met in tha bank again to renew the eiamiuHtion. I found Mr. Hurd and Wymjnin clna-conreraation. I took n aeat at the table, and b?ard a remnik which startled me. I atked what had occurrod. Mr. Hurd replied?there ia trouble here." I aaid twiee or three time*, let tia hear what the tumble i?. Mr. Wyman went into another room and brought in n baadl'i of unpaid, unaccepted check*, kc. They were principally draft* Irawn by Stanley, Reed Si Co,, and eniloiaed by John Rklnnur. While taking mi account ol their papeia, we lottnd Irom the figure* that they were represented iii the liat of flturee which we caamin.d on Friday. The amount ol thii piper waa $S7,3A4. During the examination I Bflted why the New York drift* of 8., H. k Co. bad not born Kent on for acceptance ; and Mr. Wyman aaid there were no fundi to meet them in New Vork. I then ?.?id?let ui fen what el?e there i*. Then Mr. Wyman and Mr. Brown brought in iimr more note* and papera, including demand note*, with a Hit ol figure* without dates or name*.

Boiore theae ware counted, Mr. Wyman tent I for theoth?t Jiracton I etunot rtcolUct tbei* renti |*rliaps in the precise order in which they occurred, for we were somewhat excited end agitated. Without wait i*g lor tka other directors we want to aupper. l/pon the detail* of the iia.niuition on Saturday tiler. noon, the recollection of the witneaa waa not ruty diatinct, | aud could not reasonably be expected to be diatiuct.

Mr. Wy man said be would not remain in the town an hour if the bank was closed en Monday; that our lives would be indauger. He laid that the bank could be kept up by re. duciog the circulation, and securing something on 8., II. Si Co.'a paper. Wyman proposed to relinquish hia real estate. Hesaidthat he had done wrong; that he had deceived ua long enough, and now he would do all he could for the benefit of the barm ; that he could not be more miserable and unhappy under any circumstances tbm. he bad been the pakt three years, and rather than autferu any longer he would give ub every cent of p operty he had. Mr. Wyman put up real estate enough to secure his indebtedness to the bank on his own paper in the bank. According to Wyman's estimate, there was nominol se curity for 3., K. St Co.'a paper to the apparent amount of $3'J,!)00, but he was of opinion that not more ihan (10,000 could be realised upon It. Mr. Brown also made out a statement ol notes becoming due, as evidence of the bank's rirobable resources. Mr. M'lntire said to Mr. Brown, in reference to tho stateofthe bank," Mr. Brown, did you.not know at out thii?'' Mr. Brown replied?"I did not know the txteutof it.'' A question was uskrd, how | the proposed dividend was to be paid, when the oapital Mock was all goae. Wyman said he would pay it out of his own pocket. He drew me aside in the room, and, taking me by the hand, shod tears, and asked me to withdraw my objection to continuing to keep the bank open. Late at night the meeting broke up, and re assembled after daylight on Monday morning. Mr. Wyman was sent for. The<'ccision to remove the effects ot the bank was communicaUd to him. The removal was to save them from being stolen or destroyed iu any riotous ombre"*!. Mr. Wyman said, in reply to this announcement, "You are huaty, ge it .-men?you are hasty, gentlemen." I I suppose ho referred to the deci?iou to close the bank. I Noticowasput up, that the bank nad stopped, and a message was sent to the bank commissioners. Mr. Wyman, in one ol his penitential conversations, said?I will tell you, gentlemen, how it w..?. And he proceeded to say that totanley and John Skinner wanted money in the summer of 1833, and proposed a meeting nt riiillipA's Bcich, rather than in (Jharlestown, where they thought it wou' 1 not be we'l to be seen together. Tho m- 'ing took place at Phillips's Beach, and there hey leUeu to tbe tears of John Skinner, and wrongfully let them have mon?y; that he also afterwards let them have more money until they had so much he was afraid to stop thrm. 1 don't know that he had said anything about the director* in the conversation- Up to the failure I had entiivconfidence in Wyman'* integrity and capucity . My confidence was undiminished until going to the meeting on Saturday afternoon. 1 had no knowledge whatever ol the demand paper of Stanley, Head St Co. until Saturday, or ol their other paper.

Olticei Collins testified that he arrested the aceuscd from a difcription given him by Mr. Lee, when he was fully identified as the pen on st en in the store. The defence offered no testimony, but contended that a part of the store being occupied onlv as a sleeping apartment, the offence ceuld not be classified a; burglary in the first degree. The Rkcokder charged that |-he offence was not burglary in the first degree, as the store entered was not a dwelling house in the meaning of the statute, no moro than a stable would be if an bostler bad slept therein. The Diithict Attorkkt dissented from the opinion of the Court, and contended that any place where a man slept wps bis dwelling, even if it was a dog house, aud therefore the offence was burglary in the first degree.
