N' ^ ORK HERALD. New York. Krtdny, Anguit 18, 1M3. The Flrat Nhol forllw 1'irildfin y-( ulhouii Stock on Ihr Klw - strange Hrialti Th# ward ine?-;in*s of the Democratic parly to felert delegates to Tammany Hall, to choose other* to represent them in the Syracuse State Convention, were held last evening, and the reault will astonish many who supposed that Calhoun 6tock was entirety below par in this city. First Ward?In this ward the contest appeared in some measure to be a personal matter. Mr. Assis iaui -viuerman UhariicK headed one ticsef, ana Mr. t Nicholl, the other, both professedly strongly tinctur ed with Van Burtiiistu, though the Nicholl ticket i waa tub rota understood to have an inclination the < other way. The Nicholl ticket was elected, aa lol- ! lows:?Henry Nicholl, William L. Lockwood, i and David Kelly. i The voting presented an exceedingly singular ap- | pearance. A gentleman,by courtesy designated the "Chairman," tiood upon a table and received the tickets in his hat?two or three talley clerks took the names or the aasumed names ot the voters, and some forty or fifty true democrats, who appeared to possess nothing uncommon, filled up the remaining space of -two small rooms thrown into one, at number forty-eight Broad street, for this special occasion. 3,'he room itself was so hot that thermometers were listless, for thev could not get high enough to designate the true state ot the atmosphere ; one talley cleTk boasted a huge and killing display of whiskers, and amidst the amber tints of the "lady kill*rs,"the perspiration stood in drops that resembled the dew in the grass on a fine frosty moriiing; and the huge paws who constituted the entire meeting, were sweltering in sweat. The room iteeK resembled an oblong oven, and it was really the warmest meeting we ever attended. As one man approached the table to vote, an elderly democrat cnallengrd him ou the ground that he was a Whig, but it waa admitted 'hat conversions cou'd be instantaneous, and he passed muster. Another sucoerd?d, who had evidently seen service "Jim Brown," said'he challenger, "what's your uaii.e nou?" "John Jones," replied the voter, wi'h ihe uinr>(,r imperturbability. " Why, you've voied ihree tim?*s alre,td} *' "Oh, you shut up," ?'h ibe respc rise, and the vctew>s> tnken A tall and I ?tiitieri Liertuitiftee nt'xt hitnapll n<nt u*:.o rh il 'igeH mi the ground that hi? vote wab "anony- j mous." Th? vo'er wap Btruck ^t-cliless wnh as tonUhment at the singularity ot the objection, bu' wher 'at* recover d ins pHfts of speech.he used them in a vray not very complimentary to the eyes, and tntclieci of 'h? aswiJuous challenger. Thus ihe \v>t:i g progr^s^ed until nine o'clock, many being clvllenced on the gr.iuiJ ihit they belonged to the Fo'irtf enth, and no' to ?h? First WarH;indeed, very few F rs' Wtr^ers appeared to tdkeany interest in the matter?miny having voted end gone out at one door, returned through another and voied again - and then it was moved and seconded, and carried by acclamation, that the poll should close at the expiration of ten minutes Tnree minutes and an eighth having elapsed, by the same u ammous vote it was determined that the ten minues had expired, and tne polls were final- , ly closed, Ithouyh some other polls were open- i ed ; or, in plain phraseology, some heads were i cracked by quarrelsome rival politicians. And then ensued a scene which we would.descnbe if we knew how. Mr. Alderman Charlick wished to present a Beries of resolutions to instruct the elected delegation to vote for Martin Van Ruren, but the Alderman and his resolution were treated with contemptuous and obstreperous rudeness ; and a series of resolutions offered by Mr. McCullom were adopted in favor of the district system of representation in th e National Convention, and thus ended the election of delegates in the First Ward, which we miy say in conclusion, was not very flatteiiag to Mr. Van Buren, if tuck a meeting can be taken as expressing the public sentiment of the Ward. In the Second Ward, the Van Buren party prevailed without much difficulty. Two tickets were run, one professedly Van Buren and the other Calhoun, but singularly enough, two if not the entire three names on the Calhoun ticket, were those of full blooded Van Burenites. There may have been some rute in this; we do not pretend to say there was, but the fact may speak for itself The following were the delegates chosen:?S. Waterbury, A. Hating, and P. Riley. The two fo mer were on the the original Van Buren ticket, and the latter on the Calhoun, he being substituted for Johnson, who was scratched Matty therefore secures this district. Ia the Third Ward an Anti-Vun Buren, a Custom House, and a District System ticket was elected, es follows s?William II Jansen, Patrick G. Moloney and Charles Gallagher. It was, however, whispered that Jansen was a Van Buren man without adulteration. In the Fourth Ward the meeting assembled at the Shakspeare, in a lower room, and Medad Piatt was called to the chair by a unan incus vote, but as soon as the other officers were selected and it was ascertained by the Van Buren meo that the remaining officers and tellers were Calhoun or antiVan Buren, thev bolted, and moved an adjournment up stairs, which was lost. The Van Buren men then went upstairs, whil- the laree body of the meeting remained below and gave 518 votes for their dele gates, Medad Piatt, Joseph Murphy and Thomas D Bi'-klord, all of whom avowed themselves amiVin R r^-n m^n at the meeting. Three cheers were giv'D !or Calhoun and the in*- -1ii g <dj iiirned. In 'h* Fifih WdH, Lfwis P Clover telecicd us President of the meet:nc, and Ancire w Lester an<J E B Hart.

Several aitemp's at orde* were made, but Dcing ut. ^successful, the meeting was finally adjourned 10 Monday next, when a diy ballot will be hart. In the -ix'h Ward Wrn Sbaler, John Foot and JoSi' Gehraty.avo-vH Calhoun and AntiVan Buren m-n, were elected delegates by i ? " two hundred m-j- ri'v. Penrv E )??eil, Pf A F Vache and Jctin McMihon wer' on the Van Buren ticket? Every thing went off quietly here In the Seventh Ward John Murj iv and Bartlett ^iiiith, Calhoun delegates. "*ere ctuwn, pnd John J Cis. 0-, Va?i Bur?n, oy ebout sixty majority Resolutions were alto p^aeed in favor of the district system. In the E'ght Ward the ticket in fivor of Martin Van Buren, r.nd having the selection of the candidate directly by the jieople, composed of John Spaflord, Petf-r Crawford and James Connor was elected. Resolutions also p&gi-ed in favor of the district system. Io the Ninth ward the Van Buren men, contrary to tha call ol Tammany Hall, fu Id a day ballot and at n>g it carried off the b illot boxes. The Culhoun, CaB* and Tvler m'ti, met at 8 o'clock, and after Considerable riot, nois* and contusion, elected delegates of their own choosing, and panned resolu ions in favor of the district system. la the Tenth Ward the resolutions in favor of the district system were defeated, and those in favor of Van Buren adopted. After considerable clawing, pulling and hauling, ord?-r was restored, and the Van Buren delegates declared elected. In the Eleventh Ward the same result with less disorder. In the Twelfth Ward the Van Buren delegates were chosen. In the Thirteenth th?? district syetem whb defeat d, and Van Buren d<-legiitf? chosen by S3 majority, there being 244 vote* po led in the Fourteenth Ward th?* names of Calhoun and Van Buren were fairly pat to the meeting, and the Calhoun delegate*, composed of Daniel B. Tay lor, J??hn Collins and Jamea Fagan elected by over 100 majority over John Bloodgood, John F. Gray and Richard J. Wilpon, on the Van Buren ticket, in the Fifteenth Ward the ticket favorable to the nonuuation of M&rtin Van Buren, consisting of John 1. Morgan, Abratn Cook, and Bcnj. F. Butler, waa chosen, and one vote given for a Tyler delegate. la the Sixteenth Ward, the Van Boren delegates were chosen without much opposition. la the Seventeenth the wune result, the Calhoun men receiving 41 votes (o 22s The distiict system waa recommended. in ik:. ; ?.;n i >l.. c i. i JU una fUHiroi n win ucsrru iiiav live WtruBllBVC openly declared in lavor of Calhoun, that is the 3d, 4th, 0ih, 14th, and 7th, while nine are as open for Van Buren, consisting of the 2d, 8th, 10 h, llih, 12ih, 13th. 15.h, 16th, and 17th, and the 1st, 9 h, and 5th doubtful. It will also be seen that the name ol John Tyler was not brought in any way into the several meetings,and that not a single Tyler delegate wai chosen. Should the delegates from the 1st, 5th and 9th be Calhoun men, the vote in the county cemrention will stand?for Van Buren 28, Calhoun 21? ind as the majority have the choice, it is easily to he seen what will be the result. T*i Oregon Question.?1This question, we may depend upon it, will cause a good deal of trouble before it be settled. Its importance cannot be exaggerated. The posse&sion of the territory by this country is essential to our security, and every day is adding to the necessity of having the matter decided. We think that this question is Bomewhat neglected just now, and that the public mind should be kept thoroughly aroused with respect to its vital importance. The prospect ol the rapid settlement of the territory by emigrants from the States, afforded encouragemen' to hope that in a short time tolerably effectual barriers to British encroachment would be erected. But this was, of course perceived by the British government, and the policy was immediately adopted of operating on the Hudson Bay Company, so as through their agency to prevent immigration. It is well known that this has been successful to a great extent. Now, surely, it is full time that decisive steps should be taken to secure the sptedy and per* manent settlement of this great national question. If the subtle policy of Great Britain be allowed to operate much longer, it will not be jo easy for us to assert and maintain our right of sovereignty. ^trakgb Notion auout ths Immorality of the Press.?A fellow was put on trial the other day in the ti.ston Municipal Court, for stealing from a house of ill fanv. Mr. Parker, the Government prosecuting officer, commenced his remarks to the jury ii. the following extraordinary manner :? " I congratulate you, gentlemen of the jury, that there are no reporters tor the public press present. I think rhat th-se reports tend to a laxity in public morals ; no good can come from them. Thev have le ded as much as any other infl ience to tne increase ot crime in this jurisdiction." We are not certain of ihe moon's age when this s<g? opioicu was delivered, but it is manifest that Mr. Parker's head must have been under some disturbing inlluence or other. It is reully astonishing to find a man, with any pretensions to commo** sense and experience making such silly assertions. Every one knows, except this Mr. Parker, that the publication of the names and offences of criminals operates in the majority of instances as the severest punishment on the guilty parties, whilst the effects of the example are extended throughout the community. But we should be sorry to occupy any space in exposing the absurdity and silliness of Mr. Parker's opinions about the management of the public press. Refobm of the Fire Department.?We are determined that this matter Bhall not be lost sight of. The late fatal affray between two " runners" attached to one of the companies, is only a specimen of the necessary operation of the present system. It is impossible to calculate the vast amount of crime of all sorts which has its origin in these fire companies, as at present organised. Every respectable member of the department?and we know that there are many such?is desirous that the work of reform should be commenced. In Baltimore the members of the companies have organised a police force, selected from their own ranks, and we believe that this plan of preserving order and increasing the efficiency of the department, has been found to work well. How would it do here? Bridgeport, Connecticut.?This place has been unsettled some time by the city bond question, the courts having decided that the city ia liable. Those who were the most noisy and clamorous for tha debt to be contracted, and the bonds to be given, are now equally noisy against their payment, aid they threaten to carry uo the case to the U. S. Supreme Court. They may, however, save themselves that trouble, and the consequent expense, for a number of " nice young men" have argued and settled the matter in the Lyceum lecture room of Bridgeport. Courts will now become obsolete, for all legal, and indeed all other matters, can be settled more economically by these young debaters. Some of these societies have decided some funny questions in their dayGrand Ball at the Belmont House, New Brighton.?Mr. Pieris, the enterprising proprietor of this establishment, is making preparations on an exten" sive scale to give another grand ball on Friday evening next. The one given last Friday was magnificent?the splendid band was stationed on thepiazzi, where they performed some of their moat beautiiul whI zff, marches and quadrilles, which made the hir resound with their delightful music The house was b*r?*ly able to accommodate all that were present The ladies looked lovely, and brass buttons rehired extensively The one to be given next Friday will br more magnificent with sparkling eyes, oeautiful girls and plenty of flirtation.

Yoni-ACoifTftTHiR Kobbku and Himbuoged .?'The midnight otfenae of robbing the pocket* of old and young leeheroua die clples that belong to, or visit this city, hu become so common an affair, that scarcely a day passes that complaints are not entered at our police offices. The peculiarity of the offence, ard the position of the suiterer on its commissioa is such, that few men have nerve enough to lace a Court of Justice to sustain acharge;buttothecreditof our Court of Sessions be it said, that no recent case has been prosecuted where the guilty parties have escaped conviction. It is also alleged that fear of publication of nanes oftentimes deter persona thus robbed from entering complaints at the polica offices No doubt such is the case, and it is with this knowledge that the villains who practice this offence so daringly operate in the crowded thoroughfares and streets of our citv. The omit ion of Dame* of complainanta by the public press would ierve the cause of justice in these cases, and whenever necessary, will be acceded to on tho part of this paper. The following recent case, presenting strange and extraordinary peculiarities, and terminating in a most singular manner, has induced a lull publication of all the particulars, not only that tbe public may thus understand the moiut operandi of the whole attair, but that the parties to the transaction may be fully exposed On Tuesday last Mr. Isaac Smith, or Isaac D. Smith, a resident of North Salem, Westchester county, in this State, left his home for this wicked city, and on Wednes day evening, while walkiDR in Oreenwich stieet, was met by that arch cypriaB, Melinda Hoag, and taken to a house where she said she resided, when he became alarmed at the sights he saw in his room, and leaving the house, discovered that bis pocket book, containing $30, hud been stolen from his pantaloons. He made immediate search lor m atchmen and police officers, but not being able to find the latter, he applied to Alderman Tillou of the Fifth Ward, in which the transaction took place, who drew up the following affidavit at the request el Smith, which was sworn to as correct City and County of Ntv> York, sc. Isaac Smith being duly tworn doth depose tind saythat he reside* in the northern part of Westchester county ?that this evening the deponent met a woman in the street which she told him was Greenwich street. She asked the deponent to go with her to her residence in Greenwich street, where she said she lived alone, to stay with her. That the deponent went with her to the second story front room of a house on the west side of the street?that she locked the door and wou'.d not go to until deponent was undressed-that deponent undressed himself and laid down on the bed, (a bed and bodstead being in the room)?the deponent laid his clothe* on a chair near the loot of the bed?she, the woman, then drew the curtain which surrounded the bedstead as low as below the be(1, she first having on dressed herself ?nd having got into bed?the deponent, from her manner, had his suspicions aroused and had ro connexion with her?the dt-penent heard a noi?e in the room, and took his hand and hove the curtains up, and then discovered a man in n stooping poslurc, bucking oattow& the we? doort-f the room, -n.l he threw the pantaloons of deponen', which h^ had taken up, towards the chair, and they fell on the iloor. Depo nent said tueii, " What man is that V and sprung oh' the bed. Says she, "Did you seen man V' To which de ponetit, having become apprehensive of his personal safety, said "No;" and then commenced dressing himself, and ou taking up bis pantaloons, discovered his pocket-book was goui. That the got out of bed and raid, " Did you see a man V To which deponent suid " No.'' She then as tied deponent the occasion of his getting off the bed. Deponent to this said, that he had occasion to go down; and she then said there was a rhatnbei, and he need Lot go down; that deponent finally dressed himself and went out; that when deponent went into the room and undiectied himself, he had in his pantaloons pocket u pocket-book containing several bank billa, amounting to $30 or upwards, which, when he got out of the bed, and putting his pantaloons on, he discovered i(as gone, and had been taken away by the man who was in the room; that the woman who has been brought to the watchhoitse from said apartment in Oreenwich street is the same woman who is above mentioned, and who was in bed with him; that the dej>ouent verily believes that the wo maa above mentioned, and the two men who have been taken by the watch with her from the apartment in Oreenwich street, above mentioned, have been concerned with her in robbing him of bis pocket book, above mentioned; and the said robbery is, as he believes, the result of a previous design of the said persons to commit a robbery upon him; that the deponent, after leaving the house, came to the watcbhouse, in the halls of justice, and made his complaint to the Captain of the watch, on which the watchman, sent for the purpose, went to the house, aud there founJ locked in the chamber above mentioned, and the back room adjoining the same, the above mentioned woman, and the two men who nave Deen nrought to the watchhousc with her ; that alter some difficulty and delay the door was opened to the watchman, and the persone above mentioned were found in the apartment above mentioned; that the deponent answered the woman'(questions in the negative, as al-.o ve mentioned, from his being really apprehensive for hia personal >afety, and was afraid if he answered otherwise that bis life would be endangered. ISAAC SMITH. Sworn the 16th day of August, 1843, before ( F. B. Tillou, Aid. Ath Ward, City N. Y. 5 On this affiJavit, Melinda Hoag, Alexander Hoag, and Charlea F- Watson, were arrested by watchmen at the house where the robbery was committed, and ladged in the watch house, on a temporary commitment by Alderman Tillou. In the morning the complainant Smith appeared against ti>em, before Justice Steven*, who ordered the parties to be committed under the affidavit, and Smith to tind bail in the sum of $1000, to answer to appear at court to prcsecute the charge. Smith stated that he was a man of wealth, and would enter into hia own recognizance to douDla that amount; but Justice btevens very propci ly told him, th8t as he was a stranger, and th? parties implicated were of such a class, he must insist upon his obtaining security in the city to carry on the prosecution. Officer Cockefair then procured a cab, and went, in company with Smith, to an acquaintance in the upper part of the city, to procure the necessary bail. This being done, and the bail requested to attend at the police office at 9 o'clock, the two were approaching tha cab to return, when officer Cockefair alluded to the fare of the driver, and Smith put hia hand in his pocket, and drew out a wallet containing a small sum of money. Cockefair asked if that was the pocket boot that the money had been taken from, when Smith said it was not, as the one taken was of smaller size, he having had two. Cockefair then said be thoug t it rather strange, as ho rarely knew a theft of the kind where the pocket book was stolen, as generally they took the money out and placed a roll of paper in the wallet and then returned it to the pocket. He therefore advised him to search his pockets thoroughly again?when, lo 1 and behold, the identical wallet with the identical money, was found in the front coat pocket of Mr. Smith, although be thinks the alter noon before the|- obbery,he put itlin hia pantaloons pocket. This discovery being made, officer Cockelair conveyed the party to the house of Justice Stcvans, who considered the developement ao remarkable, that he declined taking any definite action until a full investigation co Id be made at the police office. Nine o'clock having arrived, and the accused parties brought up from the prison, an examination was entered into before Justice Parker, he being the sitting Magiitrato,assisted by Mr. Csllender, Esq., Clerk ol Police. Mr Smith was again called, and made the following affidavit City and County of New York, ?S. Isaac Smith being affirmed, sta'es as followsThat upon examining his porkrts this morning, he finds in his side coat pocket his book and money, which he supposed was stolen, as set forth in his affidavit foregoing That when he left home lu Westchester county on Tuesday last, he put his book and money in his pantaloons pocket, and did not take it therefrom until yasterdav In84th street, wiien he took it out an l paid some money therefrom, an! is unable to say from recollection into which pocket he returned said book and money?was last evening fully im. reaaau wit'' thu belief that he had returned it to hii pantaloons poek?t,?nd not findmgitthere upon rising,tAv it :or grauted that it v.-as stolen, and so reported.

Woedhull, it will he remembered, was charged some few months since with false pretences forobtaining money from Miller by representing that Woolley had authorised him to borrow it on his account. The case was heard belore Justice Merritt, when Woolley testified that he had never authorised Woodhull to obtain the money, but William Martin,Thomas Bowden.and Nathan Morgan testifying that Woolley had stated and admitted that He had so authorised, the complaint was dismissed. Woodhull has since been indicted for foiling the name of Miller uron a check for MOO.which was discounted by William Mix,a Wall street broker, and will be tried at the September term. He avows, however,that Milier gave the cneck in good faith, and that it is bis real signature.. From the affidavit of Woolley in the present chargc against Woodhull, it appears that on or abotu the 14thnf July,he received the folio wing letter from Woodhull:? N&w Yoi*k, July 14, 1843, Friday. i)e\R fciR My relations all (insist upon lay making a complaint a^ainM you for peijury, .ind say they will give roe no rest until I do so 1 have told thera that I Lave sworn not to .-<o so, that being the only way that i could pac>Iy ihem lor the time. Several of my father's connexions have been to me lately and have called ou my mother in relation to this, and they are far lrom being satisfied that 1 have taken any oat!i :n the matter at all, audtbev still say it is my duty to make the compluint agniust you, and insist upon my doing so. Now, Mr.Woolley, 1 do not wish to see you suffer for this, as I bin convinced that you were persuaded and induced by Miller to take this course aginst >ne that you did. But the only way lor me to proceed to piotect you, is to go before n CommiJiiobet of Deeds and make oath that I will not do as they, my reflations, insist I shall. This is the only way to the matter, finally and forever, and in order toj do so and prevent any trouble, yeu hud better meet mo at the corner of riranri and Croibv streets on Saturday morninff between 10 and 11 o'clock. Yours, truly, It WOODHULL. [Superscription.] Mr. Charles Woollet, ) Corner of Stanton and Attorney at > New York. ) Wooliey did not comply with tbis request to meet Woodhull, but on the succeeding Monday, the 17th, he accidentally met him, when Woodhull enquired if ha had read thu letter, and replying in the affirmative, Woodhull told him he must give him $100, or he would prefer a charge of perjury against him. Wooliey then promised to meet him the next day, but on the same afternoon received the following letter :? New Yoke, Monday afternoon, July 17th, 1943. Dear Sir I shall be unable to meet you to-morrow morning, as 1 have some business to attend to down tows, which will take me until two o'clock to get through with. I shall be at home at my mother's, No. 8 Sixth street, from three o'clock until eight, and if you wish to tee me you will find me there. 1 would, however, rather not have any thing to do with the matter which we talked about, until I again see my uncles, who will be here by Wednesday afternoon in the Albany boat. But whatever may occur, you cannot now blame me, Mr. Wooliey, as I liave no alternative leit me, since your refusal, but to do as my relations advice and direct. What I have done wai solely out of good feeling to war's you, and I was in hopei some arrangements might be made whereby you would not get into any difficulty, but if it does so happen I cannot help ?f,a? I have done all I could to avoid it, ar.d if tbis matter cannot be settled as I suppose, you must take the consequence*. Yours, he. R. WOODHULL. To Charles Woollev, Esq., corner Stanton and Attorney streets, New York Nothing farther passed between them until Friday the 21st of July, when the following letter was received from Vv oodhull- In this it will be perceived, he began to grow more cool and positive, as he dropped tne word " dear* before the "sir," in the introduction. Fridat, July 31, 1843.

Thk Laie Storm.?The Sag Harbor Watchman states the following injuries by the late thunder storms:? On Sunday last, a sloop wns struck while lying ut anchor in the harbor, at N. Suffolk, Southhold. The fluid descended the mnsl, taking with it the wedges at the deck, into the hold, where it separated, a part of which parsing through the bottom of the vessel, and a part through the cabin, demolish ing a lea kettle, which stood in i's way, and passed out at the window without injuring any of the crew, who were alt at thet time in the cabin. The mast was much shattered. The sloop immediately sunk The vewe! hus since been raised, and is now ct ..? ?: ? :? c*i : ? vm--?tii i un 'iiiuciguiiig ic^aua. one is ownea at Saybrook. Ct. During the same storm, a barn in Aquebogue or Mattituck was struck witli lightning, and entirely destroyed, owned ae wc understand by a Mr. Welis. The lightning also struck in the wood near Fire Place. The leaves and combustible materials took fire, but the rain which soon alter descended copiously extinguished the,flames before much damage was done. During the thunderstorm, with which this place was visited on Tuesday afternoon,the house ofMrB. Budd, in Garden street, was struck, and receivrd considerable damage. The electric fluid first struck and demolished the top of the chimney. At the ridge of the house it separated, and a portion descended arfulter to the side of the house, and thence into the front room, where five or six persons were sitting, oil of whom were knocked down by the shock. No one, however, was seriously injured. Mrs. Budd was ill, and lying on tbe bed in the same room at the time, and was less affected by the shock. Another portion of the fluid descended by another nifter on the other side of the house, and entered the back room, burst a large hole through the side of the house and passed ofl. The bark Barbary which was lying at the wharf, was also struck during the same squall. The light[ ning descended the top.gallant-mast, which was shivered and broken down. Fortunately it was di| verted from a descent by the mast into the hold, but passed down the rigging over the rail into the water, i There were several persons employed on board at i the time, who felt but a slight shock. I Death of the Hon Wm. Halset.?We are called , to-day, says a Newark paj er of Wednesday, to announce the loss of one of our oldett and most distinguished citizens, in the sudden death of Win Hal sey. We understand that he retired last evening in his usual health, and that he expired about dayi dreak this morning in his chamber, as is supposed, of apoplexy. Some years since he had an attack of paralysis, but had so far recovered as to be able to attend to his private affairs and enjoy the society of his family and friends Judge Halsey has been a member of the New Jersey bar for near a half a century, having been admi'ted in 1794, and was consequently one of the oldest members of the proJ fession, from which he retired several years ago , Three ef his seniors only survive, viz: Judge Ford, Robert Campbelle and Gov. Williamson. For many years he occupied a prominent place among the - ablest men at a bar always distinguished for its abili- I ty and resources. Judge H never entered into por litical life, but after he retired from the practice of his profession, which had been very extensive, he 1 accepted a seat on the bench of the Court of Com* 1 mon Pleas for the county, and was the first mayor ' of the city undar the new charter. He was a native J of the county, having been born near the Short IIill*. in the year 1770, and was consequently in the 73a , year of his age.
