ftKW YORK HERALD: \tw York. WXInftd*}-. inguH 10,1843. Cusm ntu-nal Kkform ?By rettrence to a re. jTri in anoiter column, it will bp wen that amove, m- nt hi<? been commenc ed by sopip of our most influenzal ci'iaren^, and many of our best jurists, to Oft- /re various chaners in the Constitution of thi? fit'htf, winch shall ve*t certain powers in the people which arc now exercised by the Executive and the Senate, and transfer others to courts and person* who slid!! derive their Authority immediately Irom the people. The Hon. Robt. H. Morris, in his brie! remarks which we have reported, gives a clear, con densed view ol the objects proposed ; but we may lu re enumerate some oi them, lor the preaier convenience of those interested, and that they may be the more readily comprehended. We find, then, in the first place that the convention se?ks a separation ot the lesHative, executive and judicial departments, inasmuch &s such s?pi ration is deemed vi'ally important in our political ctrrtnizalino, so as to ensure th* independent action of 'he pjrts without any preponderating irfluene* of iiher, ns>d alro, to divest the Senate of all ju i . t I'uwti. a- i? t'H't'UTu, luniiri, u? impiw mien l -upon ihe power to create public debt*, as v r prevent their increase without the express absent of the people, except in case of war or insurrection. It is likewise proposed absolutely to prohibit the grant of Facial privileges, and to give the most amrle security to the rights of property and of i..; r >>gainst the exactions of power. Another "ij> >s*d reform is designed to secure the common :ool literature deposit and other trust funds m conversion or destruction by the legis* . tiv<? power. Safe and certain limits are sug?r-;ed to the powers of all municipal and corporate bodies to create dpbt and impose burthens on those residing or owning property wiihin their taxing powers; and a limitation of the offices ol government to functions strictly governmental, and to the umalleet number that can insure efficient public service for a moderate compensation, and the refercuce of their appointments, as far as practicable to the people, and to the bodies nearest, most dependent on, and responsible to the people. There are many others, some of which are forcibly set forth in the remaiki of his honor, the Mayor, but they bre all republican in their character, for they are ii.Mined t? limit delegated powers, where experience has shown the necessity of limitation, and the resumption of those rights by the people, which legislative usurpation has wrested from them. (tre*t Fun in Prospective?On Thursday evening of this week the Dsmocratic locofocos, the huge paws and the butt-enders, the Ninth Ward roarers and the Six'h "Ward indomitable?, with the Spartans and the "Tyler Guard," meet in the several wards i f this city, to select delegates whose duty it will be to choose others to represent them at the Syracuse Convention. In anticipation of this movement, the ho called Democratic press have been laboring foT the past and present week to create a strong feeling in favor of the choice of men as delegates known to be solely friendly to Martin Van Buren as the Democrat ic candidate for the Presidency. On tne other hand, the " Tyler Guard" have been quite as active in holding meetings, in anticipation of the call of the true and faithful, to crea'e a little c ipital to work with at the appointed time. The posiJon of these two factions, one hacked by possession oi office and the other by anticipation, is truly amusing to the cool and careful observer of the movements of political parties. The one, that is the "Tyler Guard," avow naught but a desire to choose delegates to the NationalConvention by Congressional districts, and disavow preference of any particular name at the primary meetings. Theother secretly oppose the selection by districts, and support the old plfii of sending by counties, and also advocate a recommendation of the nomination of Mr. Van Buren bv die Syracuse convention, thus p acing him before the National Convention as the candidate of the New York Democracy. The opposition io Air van Duren minis cny, auno'ign extensive, is so divided and sub divided within itself, that ij will be (scarcely telt in the ward meetings, with two or three excep ions. The Tyler faction will be the most noisy and possesses the most phyvisal force The C ilhoun men are willing and re*dy,but having no organization thev will be scarcely perceived,and then the odds and ends, the Johnson men, the Cass men, the Scott men, <fec are so few and so dissevered that separated in wards their disjointed force will amount to nothing. They wi!l, however, unite in advocating the district ey-rf m for the b lection of delegates, and in several of the wards will r,o doubt Bucc'ed in their object Look out for the Herald on Friday morning, as a full report will be given The Statk Electiovs ? From North Carolina it IB now ascertained that {the Whigs have elected four member* of Con/ress, and the Democrats three?two districts, the third and eighth, doubtful; the latter being Stanly's, whom it is presumed is defeated. In seventeen counties heard from in Tennessee, the Whig gain on the vote of 1841, is 1()C7. There is no doubt that Jone?, the Whig candidate for Governor, is elected over Polk, by a majority of from : wo to three thousand. For Congress, Dickinson, from the seventh district, is elected ; Peyton, from tli" eighth ; Brown, from the eleventh, all Whigs? Cullom, from the fourth, and Cave Johnson, from tn< nintn aie'irict, ootn urmocrats. In Indiana the election is for Governor, Lieutenant GoverBor, members ol Congress and Legislature. Bigger, the Whig candidate for Governor, who was elected in 1840 by 8 637 majority, has lott j)a>t that number in sixteen counties heard from, w hich embraces but one-fourth of the State. The proUiibility therefore is, that Howard, the Democratic candidate, is elected. For Congress, the m!y result known is Henly's (Democratic) election in '.he second district, although there is good reason to believe that Robert Ddle Owen, the Democratic candidate, is elected over Payne, in the first dittrict. Nrw Yokk and Erie Railroad.?We gave notice to the Stockholders of the New York and Erie Railroad Co. eight months ago, that unless a thorough reformation took place in the management of the road,that its friends would lose all confidence in its completion?that it would lingerand die. Our predictions are nearly verified. Below is a notice to :he stockholders that another suit has been commenced. The Secretary however iuiorms the eight hundred stockholders that the solicitor ?f the com pany will appear on their behall without "expense" t<> the parties.

In accordance with previous notice issued by the AHSociation for the accomplishment of reform in the present Constitution of this Stata, through the assembling of a Convention lor that puri>ose, a number of gentlemen interested in this measure assembled at the Tabernacle yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Hon. RoBtrr H. MnRBis,|Mayor of the city, presided, and Dr. Wilson acted as Secretary. Letters in reply to invi'ation to attend, were received from Ex-Lieutenant Governor Tracy, Ex-Senator Tracv; Hon. John C. Spencer, Secretary of the Treasury; George P. Barker, Attorney General of the State; Hon. Churchill C. Cambreleng, Henry O'Kiley, and Smith, Esqrs., in which they expressed their cordial concurrence with the viewB of the As I sociation, and regretted that other engagements preen'edftheir attendance. Roikrt H. MuHRnthen rose and stated the object! of the m?wtin(f, an prea? nted to him by the Association? and in alliiMon to his ^position hi a public officer, remark ed,tl>at he conceived TT to he a duty be owed the people a? well as every other public agent, to give their private re mon* tor participation in public acta. He then passed i;ito a cle^r,full and elaborire exposition oi the evns ol the prvwnt t'on^tittilion o' 'he State In alluding to 'he F.xeou'tv*. he p'linti d out the a'ensive (>owen |>ossetsed by him in appointment* to < ffi-e, and showed 'he uttet mpossi'iiiit* of his hemg enabled to |i?<*iii the local kwrtwle-lue 'a "-elect Hit n 'ho bent qu?l>fted to perform the tutiesof th>j o co tor n hich the* were chosen.

He was therefore in favor of allowing the people themsel' es to select their own officers for town and county purposes, whereby their capacity, integrity and industry alona would be their rccomm. nJt'iouiito public < ill e l|hethen alluded to the peculiar powers possessed by the members of the Mate Senate in their present constitutional capacity ns Judges of the Court of Errors, 'hat being the coutt oi final appeal in our jurisdiction. That this court, composed as it was of men from one branch oi the legislature that created the very lawa brought before thun for constitutional review, was n?t such a court ascouM properly decide the great questions often at issue. Because, if aa jtiilge* they felt disposed to vote for a law, as constitutional, which had been prevlotfly passed by their own act, they tints rode over the constitution, and the people had no other rtmedy. He then pasaed into an imaginary view of the power that could be usurped under the present consti'u'ion. with the combined and even separate action of the Governor and the Court of Errors?that the Senate may by r<j -ction compel'the Governor to selsct the officers o'their own choice?that the Governor mav remove a sheriff countv clerk, or coroner, and be tha sole judge a( his own acts and appoint another in thair stead?that he can recommend the removal ol a jud*e, and if the Qanato iU . t~..J I. J > ?1 1 - * * , HI*- T'-il in urlir WIH1UUI HpjJ.-UI, IIDUeriUe constitution Tnnpow<rs ot the A*s> mbly and Senate, he contended, were unlimited, if they acted in conjtinc lion with each other, as the only limit required was a two-third vote, which Rave them power to vote away the whole proper?y of the State as a (tilt to any corporation, or lor any other use That the same power gave them the removal of the Chancellor and judges of the Supreme and Circuit Courts, Irom which there was no appeal except in the selection ol other public servants by tho ballot box. Alter alluding to the powers of combination under the present constitution, he cited an instance of a suit brought under a certain legislative act that was voluntarily carried to the Court ot Error*, comprising the same persons that passed it, in order to obtain their immediate action, that it might be a constitutional law. He cited this merely to show the abusa that might be mode of the present constitution to obtain the perpetuity of an unconstitutional act. He argued that the power of the Legislature should be curtailed to the enactment of general laws,and then that the counties and towns should appl) them to their own wants and necessities This would put an end to the leg rolling tnat now ia such a curse to our legislative hails. He contrasted the epposition to relinquish power exhibited in the Legislature, to our Common Council who had to long and tenaciously refused to abandon their executive functions to departments, and keep thtnuelvr* within the precincts of legislative action alone. He said he would recommend the appointment of more Supreme Court Judges as one measure cf refoim, and make them alternate al circuit in the several counties,?o that they could ascertain the views and feelings ol th? people, and the character of the causes brought up lor trial? That the Court of Chancery should have a jury to | try the facts before them ; and that all the causes should be heard by the Chancellors themselves, and not I by the masters. He asked if a jury waa necessary to de1 cide on a note of hand, or a common assault and battery I case,how much mor? so wa< it in the important cases that came up helore the Court of Chancery? As a Court of 1 last resort in all questions not involving the constitutionality of a law, he would recommend tha* the Supreme Court Judges and Chancellors be a Court of Final (lesort. The last Court ol Co- stitutional appeal should be of Judges elected bv thejpeople in the several districts of the State, which Court should have no cognizance of the facts attending the case, but merely be the judges of the constitutionality of the law; that thus the power that made aud adopted the constitution, should be the umpire bulore wLom the constitutionality of tho law should ba decided We nave thus given a slight sketch of the able viewi of the Mayor, which wire received with loud expressions of approbation by the small hut intelligent audienco Thp.odore StDuwicx, Esq. was then introduced to the meeting and delivered a nhort but very comprehenfive address of the powers of Government, its evils and the remedy deaired by the people at the present peiiod. Thu meeting then oi'journed to 9 o'clock in the eve Evening Session The meeting reassembled ai 8 o'clock, when, to the disappointment ot a large audience, it was announced that Col. Samuel Young, Secretary of Stale, hud not arrived hs was expected, and therefore his anticipated address would not be delivered. Mr L L. Sherwood, a member of the Wg slatur* from M di.-on county ;n thih Mate, whs th*-n introduced to the andi^nce, and enchxioed th^ir attention l?r an hour in an argumentative speech, showing up the abuses ot *overiim~M under the present I constitution ot the Siate Hon H Bevton, member of Congress trom Herkimer c u >ty in 'his State, wr* next introduced to the meeting, and asserted his hear'.v concurrence in the vie ws presented by the gentlemen who had pr?-crded him. In the course ot the evening one of the members of the association presented a declaration of principles, based upon the letter ot Michael Hoffitian, which has heretofore been publiwned. Important ARRtsr.?Manuel Flores, a Mexican, we see by late St. Louts papers, was arrested a few weeks since, about 100 miles souih of Fort Gibson, Arkansas, by the Indian Agent, under suspicion justified by his mysterious conduct, of being an emissary among the Indian tribes from the Mexican Government. On his person were four<d several official papers from General Arista, recommending him to several tribes as an agent of peace. His policy, as the chiefs have confessed since he effected his escape from their custody, was to effect peace among all the Indian tribes on the Texan bolder, and form them into a general league to unite with the Mexicans in hcstilities against Texas. He was an implacable enemy^of Texas, known and feared on the bolder, and had been engaged in this mission since 1S41 The Creek nation, with whom he endeavored to treat, Mwsed his overtures, but the Iflrt nl hia huviri* tMiriivrfH unfli llipm i?i a mAftpr of sufficient importance to demand the attention of our Government, and despatches have been sent on, setting forth the circumstances in detail. Conspirators Indicted.?The Grand jury of the Court ol General Sessions of this city yesterday returned a true bill of indictment against James Bergen, Jeremiah G. Hamilton and Richard Sutton, for conspiracy, in endeavoring to defraud the Atlantic Insurance Company ol the sum of $C<),000, the particulars of which were published in full in the Herald a few days since Bergen and Hamilton are at large on bail, and Sutton i-s confined in the city prison. The trial will take place in September. Resignation ok James Kklly.?This original and well tried friend of President Tyler has at last sub. mitted to the late ol destiny, and resigned his office of Deputy Clerk to the Court of Sessions. Whether this is in prospective view of the long cherished promise of executive favor or not, is at present unknown; but time, that exponent of all things, will sooner or later reveal lhe mysteries now unburthened.

Phoenix Bank Trials. The trial of Wjrnin and Brown draft it* (low length along, the cosnsel tor the Jelance preseating their evidence this afternoon. On Friday evening, after the examination of Q. W. Warren, K>q., for the government, Oilen James, a director of the bank, was called He testified that he never knew that Wyman had authority to loan money on check* without the knowledge and reconsent of the director*. Nathan Pratt, director, wa* called to identify the hand writing of Mr. Skinuer.the partner of Stanley, Heed & Co., who did the bunk bu?>nra* ot the firm. Jona'han Shove, ex Bank Commissioner, waanext cal ed, and his testimony as to the manner in which he examined toe bank wa* peculiarly ediiying. According to ail appearances, it was "ju?t as easy a* nothing" for w )man to d' ceive him as to theasteUof the bank. He stated that hi* own demand notes in the bunk never amounted xo high as $18,000, as shown by no me of the previous witnesses. Warren Lovering, ex Bank Commissioner, te?tilied to the correctness of the report of the Commissionei * on the state of the bank, published in October last, which stated that the bank was utterly ruined by 3., R. k Co. On Saturday morning, Mr. Hunnewell wa? recalled bv Mr. HuntingtOD, to testify^ a statement of Mr. Wy man's on out! occasion wiien ? U. k Co.'i paper was before thu board, that John Skinner was not a member of the firm. The Attorney lor the Government next propoied to a*k the witness concerning a cert; in note of Amos Bmney's for $13,000, which it was said Wy man withdrew from the hanU, replacing it with a note it no value : but Webster and Dexter objected, and the Judge forbid the question. Mr. John Hard was then recalled to prove that J.>hn Skinner bad no vi?ible property at the time oi the failure of s. K. St Co. He also stated that Wyman had told him he had not notified John Skinner on the overdue dratts. The counsel for the defence then renewed the call upon Mr. Huntington to select the count ol the indictment on which the trial should be had, and Judge Allen gave his opinion tViat he must, ordering him to select the count. Thus commanded, Mr. Huutington selected the first count,charging the parties with embezzling $40,000 in April, IS4J, and gave notice that beforethe caso was submitted to the jury, the other counts would be not. prntt'd. Succeeding thus well in narrowing down the charge against Wyman, thu! lor Brown gave notice that besbould call upon the District Attorney to sr. lect some one particular act of embezzlement embraced in the f.rst count, as constituting the oftunce lor which B'owii was to be tried. If this motion succeeds, and no d< u>'t it will, the nest move will probably be to have someone sentence of the first count selected as the ground of issue, then some one member ol the sentence; and lastly, some one word ot that member. This whittling down process will prove the mean* by which the prisai:ers wiil be let off scot free, except a heavy fee of the " missing funds " to the emiuent and honorable counsel. Mr. Dexter then opened the defence tor Wy man, and in the course of hia speech took occasion to glorify Webster "a few" for bising engaged in the case, stating, however, that he was not employed by Wyman, but by his friends. At this announcement there was a convulsive twitching of some of the jurors'digits, as though thev could apply them to their noses with a vibratory motion, ejuculating "all gammon." After Dexter had finished uis speech, Bartlett finally made his motion for selecti g some one act of embexzlement from the first count, to try Brown on, and the Judire ssid he should take time 'or his decision. Choate and Welles then argued upon the gene ral question of indictments for embezzlement, until one o'clock, I'.

Arc. 15 ?The Court met at Jhe appointed hour, when ?fter a few minutes delay the Orond Jury cume into Court and handed to the bench several bill* of indictment and the following presentment:? The Grand Inquest would farther present to the Court the infamous and fraudulent practices of certain persons connected with thia Court as Attorneys,whe appear, from evidence before us, to be in the habit of imposing themselves on persons under arrest as counsel without the capacity or Knowledge which would qualify them for the preper uigcnarge 01 ineir uuuws, ana men uy engaging id compounding felonies, fleecing their elients, and other disreputable and ioi bidden practices, defeating the ends of justice- The Grand Inquest deeply regret that the evidence submitted to them ivas not sufficient to justify them in finding bills of indictment against the culprits by name; but they trust the fuller evidence which will be developed on the trial ol sev eral criminals indicted by us will wnable the Court to act decidedly in the premises, as well for the vindication of the fair fame of the great body of the Couniellors in this Court as for the protection of the community. The Grand Iriquest would farther present the practice of persons claiming to be Counsellors, aad others who are suit. red to inti ude uninvited into the female Department of the City Prion, in search of clients or otherwise, and there to indulge in the use of indecent language and conduct, to the great scandal and pain of virtuous Females who are there detained. The Grand Inqvest suggest the adoption of come order or rule of Court preventing intuition into that prison. The Grand Inquest would farther present the practice of confining person* in tne City Prison as witnesses to be used on trials in this Court, as one involving great hardship and suffering to individuals. The Grand Inquest are unable to suggest a proper remedy for this grievance, but respectfully present it to the consideration of the Court. SAMUEL M. BLATCHFORD.Faremcn. New York, 16th August, 1843. His Honor the Recorder in discharging the Grand Inquest,thanked them for the diligence aud care bestowed by them on the public interests, and observed that the attention ol the Legislature had already been called to the detention in prison of witnesses so very properly presented by the Grand Inquest as being of unusual ha dship?but no law had been passed by that body, as it was hoped there would be, to remedy the evil. That pending the action of that body, this Court had suggested to the Common Council the propriety of setting apart some portion of ths prison rooms for that purpase, and the subject was then under consideration with that body. He very deeply regretted, in regard to the other nuisances complained of, that of persons practising at tho Bar of this Court as Counsellors, improperly Interfering with the due administration of Jus'ice, by compounding felonies, that the Grand Inquest had not mentioned the names of the parties, as it nouuf have afforded the Court an opportunity of eipressing their decided disapprobation of such conduct. That though the nuisance complained of had casually presented itaelf to the noiiceof the Court, yet they could not act upon it a* dt finitely as the caie required. He waver should tiie. Grand Inquest in any future presentment, lay before the Court the names ol the members so offending, the Court would instantly order their names fa be stricken from the roll . f practising Counsel ors. The Grand Jury were tnen discharged. Reiignationrf Deputy Clerk?The Recorder on behalf ef the Court stand ihattnev had received the foliowinir letter of resignation from James Kelley, Esq , Deputy Clerk of the Court Nf.w Yoai Halli or Juitici, ) August 16th, lb43. > To the Honorable Frederick A Tallmadge, Recorder, lie?

I have the honor to he, Very respectfully, Jcc. JA8. KELLY. The Recorder then said that such resignation had left a vacancy which the law imposed upon the Clerk of the Court to fill, and he therefore oneounradthe appointment of Alfred Phillips, E-q to the ofhee, in accordance with the selection ot the Clerk. Hw took this occasion to state, ns the head of the Court, that the duties et the office had been filled by Mr Kelly with great integrity, industry ?nd houesty, which called for an expression from the Court on the reception of bis resignation. Indicted?The Grand Jury rendered a true bill of in dictment against James Bergen, Jeremiah O. Hamilton and Richard Sutton, on achargeol conspiracy, in endeavoring to delr?uJ the Atlantic Insurance Company, the particulars of which have been previously published.? Messrs. Bergen and Hamilton are released on bail, and Su'ton i? in prison. The Court then adjourned until the first Monday in September. Clerical Visitors at Saratoga.?Amongst the visitors at Saratoga there appears to be , lany clerical gentlemen whom the " throat diaea^i-," which is making sad havoc in tne puipit, is senc n? mere. Amnnst others we observe the names of I r. Spring, of New Vork ; the venerable Dr. Rice, of Princeton ; the Rev. Professor Proudfit, of New Brunswick ; Dr. Noit, ol Union College; Dr. Eaton, of Paterson, N<*w Jersey ; and the Rev. Mr. Cheesoman, of Philadelphia, who are trying the efficacy of Saratoga waters and air. Sib-Marine Amusement.?A Captain Tuylor yet. terday attracted crowds to Castle Garden, the Battery and the adjoining piers from which a view could be obtained, by his experiments with Sub. Marine arm*ur, in which he descended to the bed of the bay and brought up various objects which had apparently lain there for a^es. He subsequently, after much delay, blew up the hull of an old craft a It Colt, but in a much more dangerous way, for Mr. Colt applies electricity in his experiments, which places the operator out of the reach of danger. There was nothing new in these experiments. Nimxi's,?To-night we are to have a new Vaudeville called Military Manrruvra, or the Comcripl%? Cunning, in which Mr. H.

City Intelligence. Diliiimti Mdidii.-Yeaterday morning, Thomas McOuire opened new Porter House, at No. 340 Mott at-, anJ among bia friends, who came to kan$tl him, ware tw0 rowdy volunteer firemen, named William Cullen, aliaa Philadelphia Bill, and Jamea F.

Cuilcn waa intoxicated, and Blaney partially ao, and were smarting under unaettled championship, having aonne daya previously had a bout over at Haboken, which resulted not to the satisfaction of either party. It waa about eight o'clock in the morning when they met in McOuire's tavern, and aa Blaney sat on the counter, Cullen went up and wanted Blaney to fight him in <he shop, but thia ho declined, when Cullen, to show hit '.ompanions that he claimed t'. be the best man, tapped his opponent aeveral times in the face with the back of )ii>ViAnri?atill Blnni'v refnui) ?h? combat, and waa re* moving hii handkerchief, when Cullen Mid, "Ifyou drip any more eft", you must fight," and made a pais at him, but McOuire parted them, and carried Cullen into the back room, and shut the door. After the lapse of a minute or fo, BUney gotott'the counter, quietly and deliberately look up a buck handled dirk knile, which lay on it, as MrGuire says, lor the purpose of cutting lemotl?? but it never waa intended for such work?It is regular assassin tool, the blade is about six inches long, and sharp at both edgea. This murderous weapon Blunt y opened, and walking towards the door, opened it. Cullen, still in the hold of McOuire, law the eye of the assassin on him, and breaking from his grasp made towards Binney, who seized him l?y the neck with the left hand, and holding the right hand down by his side, out of view, he plunged the knife, even to the hilt, into the left side ol vicCullen, who instantly fell, exclaiming "I am stabbed." The murderer intending to mukfl his work complete, made a second stab *s he ft 11, and stuck him on the l? ft aim. ii. flirting a deep wound. He then turned, and laid the kni'e, reaking with blood, on the counter, when he was sei/.od and carried to the Upper Tolice, where he was committed to await the issue of his treacherous conduct. Cullen was borne to the City Hospital, where he ceased to live about three o'clock. The inq'iest will be held tomorrow, at the Halls of Justice, at eight o'clock. Choleba Mohbus?An inquest was held at the boarding house of Philip Dutson, No. 26 Peck Slip, on the body of an Englishman nnmed James Hartley, who died about eight o'clock on Monday night, under the following circumstances On [Friday erening the deceased and his son returned to this city from Providence, and put up at the abeve boarding house?on Saturday evening he was seized with cramps in the legs, and diarrhooa, with|vomit. ing, which continued at intervals during the night and following Sunday, but not deeming the case one of dan ger, he refused to call in a physician. On Monday alter, noon,being very much reduced, Dr. Newcombe was summoned. who. on seeing the state ol the patient, pronounc ed him past recoveiy. He described the'patient as being in a slate of collapse, pulseless, extremities cold and ari culation indistinct. He prescribed brandy and water, but declined giving a certificate fir burial, in consequence of the lite period at which he was summoned. The cause oi death lu his opinion was "Cholera Morbus," and so the jury found. The deceased was about 47 years old; had immigrated about two years since, and was at the period of his untimely death, preparing to return home t? remove his family hither next Spring. How short-sighted is frail humanity ! A Child Poisoned by administering an overdose or Laddanum ?Tho Coroner was occupied yesterday in in] vestigating the cause of death of Jane Louisa, infant daughter of Joseph Doremus, No. 225 Spring street. Tho following evidence was given by the unfortunate mother, by whose hand the fatal dose was accidentally administered. During the past week, the child, which was about a year old, was suffering under the prevailing summer complaint, and becoming dangerously ill on the evening of Sunday, tho mother called on Dr. John Hassel, druggift, on the corner of Spring and Clark streets, who prescribed for it a drachm powder, composed of equal parts of pulv. rhea bi carbonati of pottass'and pulv. menth. piperata?also a small quantity of laudanum in a phial, wiih directions to make an infusion oi the powder in a half point of boiling water, and when cold, to add a teaspoonfull of the laudanum, and of this tea to admmis'er a tea-jpoontull every ?half hour. The mother mistaking tLe directions, gave the child a tea spoonfull of the laudanum, with a tea spoonfull of the tea, which in a short time produced insensibility. The alarmed parent hastened for the druggist who sent up his son, who administered an emetic of Lobelia, which had no eff-'Ot. Drs. Herrott and Sharrock were then summoned. The former administered a dose of An timonial wine, without producing the intended tffVct. The stomach pump was next resorted to, but before use the child was a corpse. The jury, aft< r a patient hearing of the case, returned a verdict "that the causa of death was the accidental administration of an over dose of laudanum by the mothar of the deceased child." Outrage on a Young Lady in Broadway.?About noon yesterday a Mrs. and her daughter?a lovely young lady about sixteen years years old, were proceeding up Broadway, and had arrived opposite Niblo's, when a respectable looking man about fifty "ears oi age seized the young lady around the waist and drawing her close to his person with most indecent gesture, endeavored to kiss her, but the screams ot his viotim and her struggle* to extricate herself prevented him from accomplishing his unholy purnose. Two citizens. Mr Thomas Walker, who happened to be setting in Niblo's conservatory, and Mr William front of whose establishment it occurred, seized the lecherous old scoundrel and hurried him to the Upper Tolice. where he feigned insanity. He would give no account of himself further than that his uame was William McCann, and that he had bur the same noming arrived in the city from Providence. He will he taken care of, and if ha is really iusr-ne, sent to the Asylum. Driving at Reckless Speed.?On Saturday last a sausap -butcher boy, whose name is John Fink, was arrested anil held to bail helore Justice Taylor iordrivinghis horse and wagon, which was loaded with otial, over a boy named Henry Lang, while proceeding up the Eighth avenua near Twentieth street, at furious rate. The child was very seriously injured in the face and head, and the left arm was supposed to have been broken. One physician. John Shank, ef No 169 West Sixteenth street, ranking affidavit that it is, while another M. D , Alexander M. Gunn, swears it is not broken. The rascally driver, though he saw the accident he had caused, never pulled a rein, but on the contrary whipped his horse into a more reckless and life-endangering speed. The acci nent w?* witnessed r>y Edward L)u<k worth, shoemaker, No. 174 Eighth avenue, who very properly mule nn atliravitof the fact, and had the warrant issued fortheras al's arrest. Suicide. nr Drowning ? About dusk on Monday evening as some little girls were sitting on the doi k at the foot of Clarkson street, a man came,and telling them *o stand hack, immediately threw himself into the dip and drowned himself. Tbe terrified children raised the alarm, and Alfred Ross, a hand on board the slorp "G-neral Scott," lying alongside the pier, put ott in his boat for the ?prt, and with a boat hook raised the body to the surface. An inquest was held on it yesterday, when the jury returned a verdict "that the unknown man committed suicide by throwing himself into the river at the foot of Clarkson street." The self-murderer was apparently an Irishman, about 40 years of age. He was dressed in n blue dreia coat and pants, double breasted kersey vest, coarse muslin shirt, shoes, but no stockings. Hair and whisker* black, height about 5 feet 8 inches. The body lay* at the Dead House in the Park for i ecoguition. A Bov Rosas* Arrested?About two months since, Norman Cooke, umbrella maker, of the Bowery, was robbed of $165 in money, by two boys, named John Lake and James Fitzsimmons. The latter was arrested at the time, tried, and sentenced to the House of Refuge, but the former escaped. Last evening, as officer Biker wos passing through Fulton street, he espied the boy, Lake, who hai arrived from Philadelphia on Saturday night, and secured him for trial The money had been expendeJ, and the young rogu > had rigged himself out with a new suit from his stolen proceed*. Riotino my Turn-outs i* Philadelphia.?The weavers of Philadelphia, as we have already announced, turned out some days ago, and since that time they have paraded the streets, and some outrages have been committed. In one instance, a drayman was beaten for attempting to take away some goods from the premises of Messrs. David Chilnerfc Son; an officer also wu badly injured in his attempts to preserve peace. The following in cidents are also reported:? A manufacturer in Shippen street, near thirteenth, wishing to remove hie yarn to a place ot t-afety, packed it up in boxen, to as to appear as if it were manufactured goods, and was about sending it away, when a mob collected in front of his place, broke ?pen the boxes and destroyed the yarn, by pouring oil of vitriol upon it. They then went to Ann street, in the (northwestern section of the city, where a disturbance took place, as we are informed, between the workmen and manufacturers residing in that vicinity. They broke into houses, tore the chainfrom the looms, and committed a series of other outrages. Ofli<er Yates, captain of the watch of that section, and watchmen Montgomery and Biiyles, attempted to interfere, when ihey were driven off ihe ground, after having been severely beaten Mr. Yates' injuries were of a serious character?his head was awfully cut, and he received a blow upon the breast which leaves him in a painful situation. The bruises of Mr. Montgomery were also severe. It appears that during the day a detachment of the police had been on the ground in anticipation of a disturbance, but no rioters appearing at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, they were dismissed, all but the three above named, after which the mob made their appearance, and perpetrated the outrages above mentioned. A Co.nvkhted Seminoma?Husli-coluc-chee, a converted Seminole Indian, is preaching at Reading, Pa., to large audiences, in the German Reformed Church. The Gazelle states that nc is a nephew of Osceola,the iate celebrated Florida warrior, whom he is said to resemble very strikingly; is about IS years of age, tall, stout, and altogether of a fine appearance. He speaks English well, uses simp'e language, aiid is graceful in his gestures. It is his intention to return to his tribe as a Missionary of tl,e <'f>ppH. &> The Canad* Legislature ia ex^ccUti to a*. * Hble at Kiiigaion on the 10tfc of September Genkkal Rurui Wkush.?We have already announced lhat this prince of all equestrian managers has safely arrived at Gibraltar, and was there attracting crowded houses'; but the tollowing paragraph from the Gibraltar Chronicle of the 3J of July, goes more into detail, and we, therefore, republish it Tor the information and] gratification of the General's friends. Thb American Circi's Company under the managementof Mr Kufus Welch continues to be crowded nightly with the beauty and fashion of Gibraltar, and certainly no establishment of the kind that ever visited us, was more deserving of patronage. The performers composing the company are of unexceptionable character and habits, and the worthy manager himself a gentleman well qualified hi every respect to represent them. The performances each even'njr have been varied, and selected with great taste. The hurculean and daring efforts of Nathans and his pupils, the Masters Kincade?the melo-drainatic excellence of Rogers p^isonating characters on horseback?the sylphlilie attitudes ana dances of Mrs. Howard, and the comicalities of the clowns, Messrs. May and Howard, with the performances of the beautifuj stud of well trained horses, would, in our candid opinion, attract crowded audiences in any part of the civilised world. We understand their intention ia to visit Constantinople, touching at all the principal ports in the Mediterranean ; and we sincerely hope their tour will prove one of profit as well as pleasure; and we would further say to all of our fellow c tizens that wish to witness their performances and have not been able to obtain seats, to do so as speedily as possible, as this is their last week in Gibraltar.

There is even at this advanced season no demand for specie, and its tendency is still to accumulate here,notwithstanding the rise in bills on France. The rise in bills on that point is not so much from an improved de mand as from a diminished supply. In farmer years, when stocks and other credits were formed in London on American accounts, French payments were made from that resource This year the only means of payment has been the crops, and although they have been exceedingly aonnaani, me snipmenis 10 r ranee nave isuru on ou uou bale*, near $-J.000,000. Tho cause of this haa been stated to b? the diainciination of American abipper* to consign to French houses. When that is done it almost invari able turr.a out that, like shipping tobacco to Bremen and the north of Europe, there is not only no profit but reclamations from the consignee are sure to come upon the shipper?hence almost all the produce sent this year to France has been purchued on French account, and the small supply of bills ia the consequence. It does not follow from this, however, that any serious demand for specie will ensue to that point, because the importers have been compelled to be cautious in their movements. Business here is fast improving in activity, and prices are in advance, and in some crseshare risen, so ax to bear the duty and admit of imports, but generally this is not tho case. The tariff' is now a direct bar to an increase of supplies, and holders of domestic goods arc reaping the beaefit. The Banks were never ao strong as now, and consequently doing so prior a business for themselves.
