The PocKlon of the ( ovcritntcnt of Pniilt-a. The bituatiou of the government in relation tc the | great political parties, is a peculiar one. It present* a new phase in the operations ol our institutions.? The whig parly came into power in the advocacy 01 certain principles which they could not carry out, and the course ol events serrated the executive trom the support ol ihe party which elected him. In this country party .-writ has run so lush, and partisans have become so iudentitied wrh party views, rather than thpt which is lor the beBt interestscJ the whole country, that ihe justice, the truth, or the importance of any measure advanced has far less influence with them than the bearing it may have up n party interests, and through that upon their individual advancement. Hencs, when the Chief .Magistrate became severed trom those whose sulIraqej elected him, lie failed to receive the support ol the opposite p-irty ; because, however much his im-asurea may have accorded wiih their principles, yet there were oilier individuals who claimed i?rio* I rity in the advocacy oi those principles. The executive thus stood between llie two tactions, liable to the influence and control of either, or to defeat the dominant party by the interposition of the veto power. By a singular combination of circumstances, however, the parties are so diviced, that neither the one nor the other can curry through its measure# pf the coming session of Congress, and the executive is shorn even of that influence which a veto power would have bestowed upon him. The lower house is composed of that party which advo fates the sub-Treasury, a low tariff, economy, and a discharge of the public debts. None,' of these views can be carried out, because the Senute is composed of an opposite party which contends for a national oank, a distribution of the lands, a continuance of the high taiiff, and as a necessary consequence, either an increase of the public debtor direct taxation. This is a position of affairs which neutralizes all parties and leaves the Executive dependent alone upon existing laws to carry on the government. Fcr tiiree years the strife of parties will stand in the way of any legislation which will give a party character to the movements of the Executive. Here is a glorious chance to rescue the lederal government from that spirit ot party against which the first President cautioned his fellow citizens. At this moment none of the favorite schemes ot either party are in existence, except the tarifl. There is no bank. There is also 110 sub-Treasury, nor will there be for at least three years to come. In that time great events will happen. Whoever looks back at the past three years and reflects upon the rapid liquidation of banks, of the discharge of debts, and of the equalization ot the exchanges, until atlairs haze arrived at their present comparatively prosperous position, must be convinced that, during the next three or tour years, w hich must elapse before the operation of the 28:h Congress can take etl immense change for the better will have taken place, commercial afiairs will have accommodated themselves to the state of things, old pur'v oreiudices will have KiihsiHud N' iiher a uatioual bank nor its counterpart, a subTreatury, will continue to be attractive. In all that time the government must be carried on on its own resources, without new legislation, and according to the democratic motto, " that is the best government which governs least " The present is likely to prove the best we have ever had. The able men now in the cabinet are doubtless as well able to carry the government through this great crisis as any ever before in office. The master spirit is John C. bpencer; his business habita anH jierscvering industry. with the extraordinary rapidity with which he arrives at a souud judgment upon all sunjects, point turnout as the skiltul p,lot who will carry the government through the shoals of party, and make new combinations necessary for the succeeding campaign. To do this requires extraordinary resources ot mind and facility in applying existing laws to the wants of the government, which are many aud pressing. It becomes every citizen ro ' l' nd his aid in sustaining the Federal Government, especially when temporarily deprived of the support ot party. We shall enter more fully into this subject. Board of Health ?This body met last evening, in order to act on a number of applications to allow a number oi vessels lying at Quarantine, lrom New < 'Means, that had remained there thirty days, to come up to the city. Many of these vessels have tiius fulfilled the operations of the law, so far as the jurisdiction of the Health Officer extends; but still the Bi>ard of Health have a discretionary power over the nutter. The yellow lever having been raging at New Orleans when the6e vessels left, and cases occurring trom some of them almost every day, at Quarantine, the applications were nearly all laid upon the table, as the members feared that while the weather continued so warm, danger was lobe apprehended to the community at large,provided the requests were granted. Thk Bowmng Green Fountain has been illuminated very frequently of late, and has attracted a crowd ?f admirers from eight till nine o'clock. The < fleet produced has been fine, and the novelty pleaPing. By the way, we have been toid a story about the building of this fountain, which we think is too ' good to keep to ourselves. When the petition first came up m the Common Council, it was rejected by a large majority, on the ground that the Croton -lioutd not spout to adorn the residences of the rich, while the poor man had to pay for the permission to use it for domestic purposes. However, before ihe next meeting of the Board, it was arranged that it the contract would be given to a certain Assistant Alderman?who understands the contract syst in too well to let such a chance slip through his fingers?it could }>o*?ib!p be carried through. The contract was given, at a sacrifice, and the petition was adopted, a great majority voting in favor of it. Perhaps it the it. John's Park folk would try the .-aine argument, no difficulty would impede the immediate adoption of their prayer. N'ews khom Canada ?His Excellency, the Governor General of Canada, has been received on hit Provincial tour, at Toronto, with an enthusiasm 'iiat nay seldom been extended to hu numorous pre d'Ces-ors, aud in proportion to the expectation that no section of the Province waemor* peculiarly lor ika r?.?:???- *- 1-'; , - .? ?uv v^uccti d vitc^ncui. i\.a cir rnurles Metcalte has not yet had an op|>ortunity "to d< fine his position," it is not unlikely that until the meeting o( the House of Aasembly, he will throw lite mantle ot mystery over the shoulders of his syco |'h?iits.

Tne President o( the United States returned on Saturday last, from a vim to his triends in Clark county, to the Winchester Springs. j Virgil Maxcy, late minister to Belgium, and 4r Wm H Harris, member oi the la.-t Congress, .tre fiiiididates for the clerkship of the next House < ( Ke pcewntatives. ,tf" It is said that Booth, the tragedian, has bci oHie a teetotaler. OoutniuJ WHO TtTUNKD l.OOWC " ONK-EVXD" THOMPSON t? We have often uAed 11??* <|tira(ion, and its importance rt quirts that we should repeat it until we pet an anawrr. It is a qticstu n, the solution of which allects the purity of the administration ol justice.? Much has been said ol |?ilice corruption and ol the compounding of felonies by officers who have every inducement ollercd to them by the existing system to do so. Oflke? who have no allowance in the ehap( ol weekly ?>r annual Hilary, nor any compensation beyoud a trifling pittance lor the execu t no ol warranis and other process ol" the courts, and who are minus all the outlay ol an unsuccessful pursuit of a violator of the laws, may be expected o lake a quiet douctwr to permit a stolen pocket?>k to be secretly re-conveyed into the pocket ot a t mplaining victim, whereby he becomes stigmatized a-! a person who preferred an accusation of crime without being robbed. The mode of course has other varieties, but whatever they may be, we reprat that a subordinate officer may,by his circumstances, be induced to compound a lelony, and let the criminal prey still longer on the community.? But in this case the charge affects a much higher officer, and the facts are simple. Thompson, a notorious thief, is at length caged on charges which ate susceptible of proof, Grand larceny, arson, and other offences ot a grave character are brought home to him, and he is committed for trial. The proof is submitted to the Grand Jury, and it is ho satisfactory to their minds that they fiud six true bills against him, on which he is held lor trial. No trial, however, takes place, and soon this notorious man is seen at large, detying |uatice, and at liberty again to prey on the citizens who pay lor the protection of their property, and establish courts for the punishment of its despoilers. Why, then, has this man been turned loose, and by whom has it been done 1 And, again, isthtrc 110 means to be adopted to bring him to justice ! The District At torney, with the consent of the court, in the disI charge ot un important and responsible duty, is, under some circumstances, at liberty to enter it nolle prosequi on an indictment against an accused person. Take, lor instance, the case ot Carter, who has been recently tried for the murder ot Castner, in New Jersey. Tne murders were numerous, but all committed at the same time, and doubtless by the same person. Separate indictments, however, were preferred in each case, and as Carter has been tried and acquitted on one, it would be useless to try him on the others, which must be sustained by the same inconclusive evidence, and therefore the I Attorney General, with the consent of the court, may enter a not. )>rcs. on the untried indictments. I T. ..... ti, ?V. .1? -r 1 Chatham.?We dropped into this little place of pleasure last evening, and were never better pleased with an entertainment. Hill was in all his glory, and the audience in an exciting Mate ol humor This evening, lie appears in the "Knight of the Golden Fleece" and the "Yankee Pedlar," with also the popular farce of " My Wile's Dentist." And by lhe<way, we must not neglect to make mention el the pretty Miss llallia, who repeats her broad sword hornpipe, in which she exhibits greater energy and ?k;l! than any dancer we have witnessed lor years. Death ok a Circcs Performer.?Mr. Aymer, a well known American Circus performer, recently broke his neck at Hatty's Circus, in the Isle of Jersey. A London paper gives the following account of the calamitous event:? This unfortunate man, whose recent performance at the Knglish Opera, under the management ol Van Amburg and Titus, excited so much admiration in Ins peculiar department, met his death on Thursday night at ihe Circus of Mr. Jidtty, proprietor of the Royal Amphitheatre, who has several establishments 111 variom purls of the kingdom, and one in the Island of Jersey, where the late l>erformer was fulfilling an engagement. The particular performance for which Mr. Aymer was an nounceu coucmueu wuii n uouuie fummerci, a leat considered almost Cil not quite) impossible, and in throwing it the ill-fated artist, instead ot abghtiug kii his itet, fell on his neck, and death wins the immediate result. Mr. Ka ty on hearing the latal intelligence yesterday morning, immediately quitted London lor Jersey, to render every assistance that his liberality can effect on the melancholy occasion Hmith, r great trampoline and vaulter, met his death hi a manner precisely similar dunnc th<- management ot Messr-t- Duorow and W? bt,a( Ashley's, some seasons back.

Affair ok Honor Ad.icm-ko.?We Uarn that the misunderstanding IvtwernCai-iain Ch?rlen A.

Who, then, was the active agent 1 Mr. Whiting was unable, at that time, to attend to the duties of his oflice, which were entrusted, in consequence, to a man of the name ot Strang, whose assent is recorded as the District Attorney yro fern. by the endorsement of his name; but notwithstanding this conclusive evidence, he casts back the responsibility on " the court," whose passive and uninformed creature lie admits himself to have been. II lie is a creditable witness, it becomes necessary to enquire who constitutes the Court, and Mr. Recorder Tallmadge stands forth as the presiding Judge, on whom, if uncontradicted, the heavy responsibility must fall. Mr. Recorder Tallmadge,however,positively denies all knowledge of the transaction, and his denial stands arrayed against the assertion of Mr. Strang, against whom there is, in addition, the damning evidence ot his own signature, recorded by his own haud. Let Mr. Strang take either of the two positions then, which he may the most prefer, and either will be an unenviable one. lie has either liberated this manThomiwon'on his own responsibility?a position, I which the evidence which we here lurnish would I seem to sanction?or hewas a mere nassive imheri !e 1 tool ill the hands of somebody else, which would show how ill qualified he was for the sacred responsibilities ol the office into which he was thrust by the District Aircriity. Mr. Strang hiinteii, by his published letter, lays claim to the latter position, and if it be conceded, further comment is untieces.>-ary;but the testimony of Mr. Recorder Tallmadge would establish the former, and what a long train of evils may we not expect to follow such an unchecked exercise of absolute power. A weak, yet unjust and needy man, might thus turn loose, for a consideration, the most worthless arid dangerous of the human race, and courts of justice might, by such agency, become but the marts of corruption and an exchauge wherein to purchase immunity for crime, for which a tariff would be adjusted by common consent, in proportion to the "deep damnation" of the crime committed. We feur to contemplate the evils that may follow, and hence we reprobate an act, how innocent soever it may have been, which may by possibility prepare the way for such a state of things. We therefore again, and shall again ask, 41 Who turned loose 'one eyed' Thompson." Nibt-o's ?The most crowded saloon of the whole season was assembled last night to hear the rival prima donnas, Corsiui and Majocchi; they both sang excellently and wi re enthusiastically applauded. Tne audience were perfectly enraptured with some of the airs sung by Corsini, who is a sing, er of extraordinary power and comiass, wnh a delicate flexible exec ution. Signor Antognini undertook Pollionat a short notice, and acquitted himself very creditably Signor Perozzi will, however, appear in the same character to-morrow mght. This evening Charles Wmther takes a benefit. " Ellen,'' the new pautoinine, tha t was so attractive last season, is to be given.

Twelve o'clock yeft?'rd?y the green flag was hoisted at the Tabernacle, and there gathered Ihc repeal representative* from every part of the United State*, Irom \laiue to Georgia. The delecutei took their teats within the tem porary railing, and presented their credential*, which were read aloud by Bartholomew O'Connor, E*]., acting secretary This necessarily occupied much time. After the names had been called over, and the delegates present hud answered, John McKeon was elected President of the Convention jiru /em. The Convention was called to order by the chaiimanwho requested the secretary to read over and report the States represented, and the number of delegations present from each, llcpeal associations in the following States have reported to have sent delegations, as follows Maine sent delegates from five associations ; Massachusetts t?; Rhode Inland 3 j Connecticut 3 ; New York 10 ; New Jersey 3; Pennsylvania3 ; Maryland 1 ; Delawaie 1 ; North Carolina 1 ; Michigan 1 j Wisconsin 1 ; Ooorgi.i 1; District of Columbia 1.?Total, 47 asso iations. Mr. Wi.iuht, of Roxb.iry, then rose and offered a resclution that one member iron* each delegation represented, be appointed to nominate candidates for the officers ot President. Vice President, and Secretaries. Mr. CiitKUKS OXoknoh?Mr Chairman, 1 propose nn amendment, which I think will more fairly represent the wishes ot the Convention. It is, sir, that a committee of two irom each State hi re represented, retire anil select proper person", to bo proposed to this meeting as officers. Such officers to consist of one President, 13 Vice Presidents, anii 5 Secretaries. Several members hero arose, and for somo mintites nothing could be heard but " Chair,chair"?" I prote?t" ?"Disgraceful Raggery." At length tho Cbeir, during a lull, announced that Mr. Wright, ot Koxbury.had the Hoor. A* soon as we could hear that gentleman, we gathered that he denounced the proposition cf Mr. O Connor at an attempt to control the fair election. (Shouts of " Hear, hear," and hisses.) That such an attempt would be llnug back upon New York by every State with indignation. (Cheers an ) groans.) lloston has two societies renrefiented here ns resnpctahln in irift?llicru.i^^ n, avi*..! lii'g in patriotism us uny of the New York societies. (Cbaen.j They came here to do -what their constituents directed them to do, and that was, tUrir duly as men and as Repealer*, and nothing should deter or turn them aside trom that duty. (Cheers.) The course pursued in Philadelphia at the Convention of 134-J, was the course now proposed, ami no man could dissent from the propriety ol that without. A gentleman with spectacles, here rose and said, "1 coll the speaker to order." (Loud cries of " Go on"? " Order"?",Mr. Chair.") The Chair decided that Mr. Wright must not wander from the question. Mr. Wright?1 do not accupy the time of the Convention, but I press my motion, and with the voice of Massachusetts, declare?it is what we expect and whatwe demand. (Loud cheers.) Several speakers cried out together?" Mr. Chair, one from each delegation is the fairest"?" Put the question," inc.. intermingled with much confusion. Mr Storks, from Philadelphia, next obtained possession of the Aoor, and said, I regret, sir, to witness a scene Fuch as now ig presented here. We havu not assembled to quarrel about such a trifling matter as to who shall nominate officers. No, sir, that, 1 take it, is a matter ot too little importance to create n difficulty among us at thu very outset of this great, this important meeting. (Hear) Sir, I feel satisfied that no man can be electcd as on otticer, unless he be one who has the full confidence of every delegate here?(hear)?and, sir, I will tell the gentlemen who shall have the nomination of officers, that unless they make their selection in conformity to the general will, that there will be no delicacy in telling them that they have been derelict in their duty, and that s'ich persons will not be confirmed in the choice of the convention. (Applausa). Gansevoort M?lvillk.?It strikes me, sir, that I have a proposition to make which will end ail the difficulty, end restore harmony and unanimity among us. Sir, i wish to cement every member, every delegation in one harmonious bond ; and I oiler as the means, that we now proceed Democratically, to elect a President, and I propose Robert Ttler to fill the high office of President of the Convention. (Shouts?groans?cheers?hisses?yes ?yes?no?no?order?Tyler, Tyler. The Chair.?Gentlemen, 1 must request you will keep order, and allow the business to go oil. (Several cries of question, question). The motion for the election of president is out ol order, and 1 beg that members will refrain from exhibiting any tokens ot approbation or disapprobation at this stage of the proceeding*. Mr. Melville.?Then, sir, I move that the two previous motions lay on the tabic*, for the sole purpose of nominating Robert Tyler for chairman. Charles O'Connor, standing on the seat Mr. Chairman, in order to secure some degree of order and decorum, I otter as a resolution that the rules ol the House of Representatives of the United States be adopted, as the rules ol this Convention. Carried. Chair ?The motion is in order?(cries ol "no, no," "Mr. Chair," "I have the floor," Sic. There were evident symptoms of disapprobation at the nomination). Gentlemen, 1 put it without debate, and will decide it by a viva i ore vete ; those in favor ot the motion will please s<y a>e. [Here a roar oi ayes followed, but a more vigo- I tons shout of nays succeeded, which puzzled the chairman, who, as soon as he could obtain a hearing beaged all in favor of a viva voce vote to rise ; but the delegates, from tho confusion, could not rightly nn. dot stand (he motion from the Chair. Some stood up and urged their friends?others begged them to be seated und not vote so blindly. Order was restored after some minutes and then the Chair explained the motion, appointing Messrs. Stokes and Doran as tellers to count the votes in the affirmative. This did not piease the meeting, and again the veas and nays were called; but the Chair still was unanle to decide by the sound. Mr. Hoban, of Washington city?I propose that each member ol the convention send in a written nomination, which shall be read aloud, and then put to the meeting lor their approval or disapproval. This was also put down, and, after much hubbub, Messrs. O'Connor and Meltville withdrew their motions, and the original motion offered bv Mr. Wright was adopted; Mr. btokes obj?ctingto such an elrctiou, in the case ol the President, who, lie contended, should be elected by the meeting by a viva vtce vote. A delicate lunged young man here offered another resolution, that Robert Tyler be nominated forthePiesjdtney, and that live minutes be allowed to consider. This was, however, put down by a most determined shout t- Another gentleman, having a most Snaksperian forehead and German imperial, here rose, and was proceeding in a most eloquent stra;n ot abuse, levelled at i>ome other memoer, when he was overpowered by shouts of "Ques tion?Question"?loud hisses and groans. Scarce had order Duen restored, when the other gentleman arose and snid, "1 will not be gauged by any popinjay from" He was, however,silenced by another volley of stentorian i cries, intermingled with hisses. The Chair, having at length obtained a hearing, put down such personal attacks by a decided expression of his determination not to allow any person to speak unless he adhered rigidly to the question; and again ho a{pealed to the meeting to consider its own dignity, a id not to indulge in such discreditable expressions of their feelings. Several propositions were offered, some directing the Chair to select as a nominating committee, one lrom each delegation. Others, that each delegation should retire, and select the delegate to represent them in such committee. This last was adopted, and a rccess of liltein mimil' S allowed.

Now came a stormy discussion which lasted for se.veml minutes, as to how the Committee should proceed, and whether an adjournment was not advisable. Several motions to adjourn were made, some until eleven o'clock to-morrow, others until five, half past four, and four. It was finally agreed that the meeting should suspend ope. rations until tour o'clock, ami that in the meantime the Committee prepare the list of candidates lor officers, so h( to have it ready when the Convention re-assembled.

Dkatii bv Poisom.?The Coroner held an inquest at the City Hospital, yesterday morning, on the body of a man named John Terry, who died the night previous. It appeared from the testimony that while boarding at the sailors' boarding house of AithurJAUen, 333 Water street, on the 11th instant, he was induced, trom representations otsome persons, to obtain some corrosive sublimate to cure the gonorrhos), and procured sixpence worth at an apotlitcary's, and very imprudently and improperly t'.ok half of it at ono dose. He wa9 taken sick immediately afterwards, and becoming helpless, was conveyed to the City H>s,utal, where he lingered, and died on Tuesday evening. He had been a boarder with Allen for the past two years, at intervals; but his ago, relatives or homi was not known. The Coroner's Jury ioturned u verdict of " death fiom an overdose of corrosive sublimate, administered by hand of deceased." Shot Himself?Yesterday morning, a person, whose name is supposed to be Thomas Hart, shot himself with a pistol in the head, in a wood shed in the rear of No. 8 I! itavia sired. It appeared from the testimony that a few days since he hired uu upper room in the house from Mr. Timothy O'Brian, and complained ut tho time of being much trotioLed with dyspepsia. On 1 itesday evening ho complained of illness to the wife ot O'Brian, and also saidthat he was tired of lite. Yesterday morning, between 7 and 8 o'clock, he came from his ;room and went i.,to tho yard, and soon alter a report of a pistol was heard, and he was found in tho wood ahed with his head blown to pieces The coroner's jury returned n verdict of suicide. On searching his pockets,between one and two hundred dollars were found in them in gold and bank notes. \Vr.nt, therefore, could not have impelled him to such an r.ct. Rohdino a Watchmakeh'i Stork.?Yesterday morning at>out day light, watchman K. Y. Kirby, perceiving the door of the watchmaker's shop of lift Kaosevelt street, open,crossed over and found h boy about 16 years of age in the store, in the attempt to steal. He arrested him, when he gave the name of James Francis. He sai l lie was about IS years of age, a native ol England, that his mother was dead, and his father at sea. That he was induced to commit this act by two colored boys, who persuaded him to go to the store and commit the burglary, so that they could make money. Arrkst ok a Sacrilegious V ill am.?A fellow named John Walker was secured yesterday, on suspicion of being the rogue who has recently entered the Catholic churches ol our city, and robbed them of all that could be obtained of value.

An Act in rfi.atiok to the Crotpn Wateii Wurks in the Cut ok New York, passed April 18, 1843:? "Section 1. It shall be lawful for the M*yor, Recorder and Aldermen of the city of New York, acting as the Super visors of the talil city, to order and cause to be raised annually, and to be coll Cted, such amount of money as slrall be requisite to defray tho intereft upon the "Water Stock c" tiie city ol New York, by tax on the estates, real and ]>ersonal, of the freeholders and inhabitants ol, and situated within such portions of the said city, as may have been from time to time brought into use by the regulating and grading of the streets and aveuues, and the laying down therein the nccessary water pipss, and that maybe designated the "water distiict" by the Mayor, Aldermen and commonalty of the city of New York, (acting a; the aforesaid supervisors); and that until such designation hull We made, the water district bhall be comprised within the following limits, viz.all of the said city which lies south of a line coinmt ncing on the west bounds of the said city, opposite the middle of 23d s'reet, rnnning thence easterly in a straight line through the midJlc ol said 23d slreet, to the middle of Lexington avenue; thence northwardly through the midiHeof Lexington avenue to th'' middl* of28:h street; thence east eily through the middle ol 23th street to the west bounds cf said city.'' Alderman Brady presented the following resolution, which was referred to the law committee:? " R solved, That it be referred to the law committee to inquire into the expediency of adding to the present water district that portion of thu city north of the line de Pinnated by the luw of thr Legislature, in which the stree ts have been regulated, and pipes laid according to the provisions ot that law." Under thia resolution, the following streets will be in eluded as they have been regulated, and water pipes laid through them since the enactment of thelaw:-K'ghth Avenue Irom il3il to24\h streets; Ninth Avenue from :23d to'J jib streets; Twenty-third street from Ath to 0th Avenues; Third Avenue from !2* h to S3d street; Thirty-third street from vJtK) feet east of Third Avenue. The same reference was made in the Board of Assistants, and both Boards then adjourned. U. S. District Court. * Before Judge Belts. if.? United Statet vs. Daniel Gorum ahil Samuel J. Jiooktiiver.?Art nction to recover the amount of dt ficit in the account of Nathaniel A. Turner, deceased, who was employed ns letter carrier at the pi-t ofHce, and whose sureties the defendants were. The circumstances of the case rendered it one of peculiar hardship to the parties prosecuted, as there is very reason to believe that the letter carrier, Turner, had been foully murdered in the month of September, 1842, and that the object of the murderer was plunder. The deceased, as was testified by the widow, left home on Wednesday, September 30, to get some mon y exchanged to poy over to the post office, and nothing was huard of him until the Oth of October following, when he was brought home dead, having been fotind in the slip at the foot of Harrison street On exam, ining the clothes, it was ascertained that the side cost pocket, in which he usually kept his money, had been rut cut, and hi? wullrt was taken. This money lost is the amount Fought to bo recovered, by the United States Government, from the sureties. The counsel lor the defendant, Thomas A. Tomlinson, K<q , read ievfral law authorities to show that the loss, having been sustained by a visitation ol God, or by the hand of man, against which no foresight could guard, the sureties were not liable for tho loss. He appealed to the sympathy of the court and Jurors, and he?ou^ht them, if they could, by a merciful construction ol the law, not to visit upon his clients so severe a penalty as a verdict for damages. The Court, in charging, cited the law us applicable to the case. The bond given to the government was, that the maker should laithlully perlorm his several duties, a:.d should pay oi ?r nil monies collected by him for the government. This latter clause was the binding one, ai d which, not being complied with, rendered the sureties liable. His Honor cited the case of tho paymaster of tho United States troops, who, while travelling on the frontier, with a large amount of money, to pay the troops, was met and murdered by the Indians, who carried oif every cent ol thn mjney. Ilrethe securities of the murdered paymaster were sti <1, and judgment rendered against them, which judgment was sustain) d bv the opinion of the Court. The securities were responsible until the monoy was pai<l over, and the spirit of the bond, WM that tlie government shall ho secure at alt risk. His Honor ohtiei vrj that the case was one of extreme hardship, and if th<- judgment wos enforced by the government, it would he severe and appalling; and though the Court could not cntettain the argument or appeal nude by the counsel,yet, il it was desired, the Court would report the circumstances lor the information of the government. The jury, under the direction of the Court, found a verdict lor the Uuited States, assessing the d.tmages ut $104 !2I .including interest. His Honor observed, that though the jury, as j nors, could not recommend to mercy, yet in their individual capacities he had no doubt but that, on their re presentation, the judgment would not be enforced.

Met a live Tyler man yesterday, lie was neither an ofiiee holder nor an ofl'ue-seeker, and yet he was a Tyler man. I was about recording the gentleman as a "singular phenomenon," when his idiosyncracy was accounted for Irom the circumstance ol his hiving been kicked by a horse, producing a partial derangement of the brain. He felt as conlident of Tyler's election as John Jones. 1 thought him worthy an "inkling," and he will be pleased to discover that he has not been mislaid. AtUtica, a gentleman of the name of Cleveland, frain Perry, Wyoming county, made complaint against a stupid looking creature, on the spot, of having, in conjunction with au accomplice, picked his coat pocket of#2000. Cleveland averred that the man put his arms about him as he stepped from the cars, and that another individual, who could not be found, extracted the needful from his coat tail. Au ollicer, in a white hat and rulll-d shirt, ordered the almost insensible wretch complained of to follow him, which of course he did. But no money was discovered upon him, and no evidence elicited as to his associate. Whereupon, the cars carried us oil' from the ground of the transaction. The prospect is, that those $2000 are lost to the merchants of New York. Lamps were produced in abundance, and half an acre of land was searched around the spot where the car stood at the moment the bills were negotiated, or supposed to be, but in vaio. We had rather a slim invoice of passengers, on account of its being Sunday. Among them were a Mr. Heyw?d, of South Carolina, lady end two daughters, just from Saratoga, going to Niagara, and then 'homeward bound."

CO' FROCK CAN ONI.V I'K KOUN1) IN TRIAL. Of late years, remedies and medicines for the cure of complaints of the lungs and pulmonary diseases, have btcn as uumerous as leaves in autumn. At any early stage of the attack, those preliminary symptoms, which denote future consumption, are easily oreicome. Simple remedies will do this, but there are times when the lungs linvo almost reached that point of disease ; a to be incurable. At such times, no oriiiuary medicine is ri quired, but one ol known value and usefulness. In nil kuch cases, Dr. Cook's Hygean Balsam will be found most invaluable and useful. Invented by one of the leading physicians of the British metropolis, aie' formed only from sueh preparations as are healing aud sooth. i:ig to the lungs, coughs, colds, asthmas, bleeding at the lungs, pleurisy and consumption are spei dily put to flight, and tho patient recovered from almost certain death. It is an old adage, that an "ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure," but in no case will it better apply than in those which lead, if neglected, to long litsofsickntsi. The Hygean Balsam is emphatically a family medicine, and as such should always be kept on hand. The slightest symptom ol a cough should be watched, parti cularly by females and children. Often in childhood do the latter have implanted within them the seeds of that disease, which in after years ripens into consumption. The use of the Hygean Balsam, on such occasions, is ok the utmost importance. Its nature is so benelicial, that ti'hilut it ta ac/r^uoKlo nvtil nloacant In if ?/? t??* oti thu system thoroughly, and restores the body to its lull, h< ulthy and vigorous state. Coughs and colts are the originators r f numerous com plaints. The small pox, scarlet fever, croup, whooping cough, rheumatism, and many species of fever, have their origin from simple colds. We cannot, therefore, be ton guarded in our endeavors to remain in health. The useof Dr. Cook's Balsam tends to the destruction of all these, anJ in London it is considered the only medicine that will at all approach toward the cure of cousumption.
