SUNDAY MORIS THE MYSTERY OK th< POMEROY'S TRUNK S ml DEVELOPED. ft PHILO N. RUST'S ADDRESS. To the Public. p? The circumstances of my recent arrest for an al- na leged participation in a crime, against which my whole soi:l revolts, are familiar to the public. I qu shall not be charged with affectation, in saying, JjJ, that my feelings, with those of my family and l friends have been deeply injured. The recovery of the property stolen f rom Messrs. Pomeroy dr thi Co., and the detection of the real criminal, relieves Dil me from the necessity of endeavoring to convince i*., the public that I was not the guilty party; but i presume I am not mistaken in the apprehension,that j * in the minds of many, at least of those who do not pl< know me personally, conclusions will be formed ^ unfavorable to my general character tor integrity, tai on the ground that if it had been good, suspicion j||j could not have been attached to me under circum- th< stances amounting to less than positive conviction. rel Deeply as my feelings have been wounded, it arises not so much from the fabricated imputation of the ro rnhherv. as from the reflection thsl the far.i nf nm *? ?~ "" '"J Do arrest earned with it the presumption that I was ini not incapable of crime?thut I was one on whom ^ magistrates and police officers were justified in ex- tin ercising their vigilance, unless I established my own innocence. I think I may refer to my neigh- ha bors and those who know me most intimately, to ha testily to the cruelty and hards.lip of such a posilion. It is no light matter to nave one's repose j,, broken at midn ght by the minister of the law; to m< be ilragged lroiu the side of his wife, whilst his foi premises undergo a search for stolen goods; to be conveyed tluougli an hundred miles of country, wi and pointed at by gaping crowds in every village, fal us a suspected, it not detected rogue; to have my a? name blazoned through the newspapers arid uttered ?c oy every tougue, witli a thousand talse ruinors and J,ii exaggerations, in connection with a detestable Ht crime; hut 1 must confess that all this has left no or impression upon my iiiuid to compare 111 painful- re nose with the constantly recurring dread, that 1 '? shall be judged by the mass of the community as Pe one who might have been guilty, though 1 was not; '. and thut it is impossible that i should have been in' subjected to the ordeal through which 1 have puss- wj ed, if there did not exist some plausible pretext or pa other to render me obnoxious to suspicion. Con- an scious asl am of my own liiuocence, 1 cannot con- ry sent to submit to a judgment so nuiiuhating and Pr relentless; 1 should preiet death. ? Urged by these cousiueiauons, 1 appeal to the public to judge between me and the events ol lue last lew weeks.? " 1 as a only to be restored to that degree ol confidence in 10 the community that 1 enjoyed beloru 1 was lalsely im- w peached. 1 trust there are none ao tusensiDle to the Cumwou claims of good citizenship, as to wish, wrougluiiy, to debar mo how that measure of jusiice To euabiu aii P' wuu huve felt an laterest in the s .tueul to form a correct conclusion, 1 beg their atleuUou to the following siele- fo munis : Upou Diy return from Rochester, on the ruoruing of the w ?ui unit. whither i hud been, by arrangement with officer Slruttou, to submit to, or rather to compel, uu exauimu *' lion, and elicit the lucts or other information upon which " my arrest was bused, 1 wm impressed with the necessity "! ol procuring and giving publicity to *uch pruols eswouitl, ''' in the absence 01 any uuolosures to tin the robbery ol |V Pomeroy St Lu'r trunk upou the real culprit,teud to exouerute me irom suspicion and mistrust, believing that i was 01 indebted for my arrest to some motive loreigu lrom a de- w sire to promote the simple ends ol justice, or even to real e ire a tempting pecuniary reward, 1 was also resolved to . employ every uieausin my power to turret out the ongi ual authors of ray disgrace, and lorce theui to account tu . . ue and the public lor the part they had acted 1 insiantly, jointly with Mr. i nomas t>. banks, alike implicated with " me hi the hx press robbery, employed counsel to carry on ' the investigauou. fue next day alter my return Irom Kochesler, J.

For nearly two weeks we J nave beenassidiously engaged in unravelling the my steiy in which the whole transaction has been surouded I sun- * mil to the public, reading the exposition which lot- , lows, to dcter.i lue with what success. The recovery ol the missing money, and the general s' conviction that Lacnner was without accomplices, ran * ders it unnecessary to lultii my origiuui purpose ol ac ' counting lor every hour of the Unit 1 passed in New " kork, us well us in going und returning, abou. the time ui the robbery 1 intended to have shown by competent teiunion) . that the circumstances under winch 1 went to tin- ' city, und the engagements which employed my time . whilst there.were ol a character wholly to lorhid the idea , that 1 could have participated in the abstraction ol the ' stolen trunk, or that 1 could have had the slightest knowledge of its existence, the nature of its contents, or the , iact of its exposure by the person having it in charge ? ^ but these prools will not be expected now. 1 therefore . pasa directly to the history of my arrest and the details which ensued. On Wednesday, the 27th day of Decemlier, I visited Buf . lalo, in company with Mr. Banks. Mr. B. had business, but 1 had nuue other than the motives of an ordinary visit " not Innmg been in Buffalo tor several years. We expect . ed.when leaving Syracuse, to extend our trip to St.Catherine's, U. C., to see Mr. L. W. Stevesaon, tavern keeper at mat place, and other friends and acquaintances; but Mr f banks becoming indisposed, and ututble to leave his room t on Thursday and Friday, and only Us ride out on Saturday, ( this part of our plan wus relinquishes!, and we made picparunons to return homeward by the train of the .list. On n the morning ol' that day. I proceeded to the railway depot , leaving Mr. Banks to loliow by a different street, but whilst waiting lor his apjicurance, a friend came up to inlorm me that he was detained by as officer and wished me to return. I immediately went back to the American Hotel, where we hud stopped, and lound Mr. Brown, the Sheriff of brie county, searching his litiggugc upou a charge that he was concerned Id the robba-ry of the Fx press company. Keeling indignant at what' I considered a gross outrage, 1 told tlie Hheiill he might aa well suspect me us Mr. Banks, and advised him to searoh my trunk 1 Ins he declined, observmg that there was no suspicion against me,and that although he hadfelt justified in tliestepe wmch he had taken, yet it win apparent that there was some mistake somewhere, aud thai he regretted that any thing of the kind had been done. The expression ol these regrets did not satisly us ol' the propriety of his course, and we remained two days longer lo ascertain tho grounds upon which the search was made. Mr. Banks uttered the Sheriff Ave hundred dollars, in hand, for the name el hit informant, or instigator, the warrant having been issue-' upon the application of Brown, the officer who executed the search, it is proper to add here, that no person's name was inserted iu the warrant, as being suspected; but it contsined a general direction to search the American Hotel. On making strong and pressing solicitations to the Slierilfto disclose the aource and nature of the informs tion which induced the- proceedings, he at length stated, that the information did not coma lrom New Vork or Albany, but Irom a place sleet of Ulica and Syracuse; but | this was all we could persuade him to say or intimate upon the subject Failing Ln our efforts to obtain the seen t or source of Mr. Brown's ? uspicions, we departed for Syracuse on Tuesday, the fd Mutant, and commit tlirouirh In - the regular train, reached .home about 10 o'clock in th< ? evening. ( On the succeeding KridHiy morning at about the hourol , two, I was awakened by a call at the door ot my room in p the Syracuse House, and ,rising to open the same, a person ,, (who afterwards proved to be a Mr. Mtratton. a constabh A ol Rochester, and a depul uuder Clark Robinson, IT. S , vlarshal of the Northern i listnct of New York), present- r| ml himself and raid that he was an otticer, and that I might n :onsidcr myself under arn at. He also enr|uireii lor Mr. j Banks, but finally proceed* d to search my room, arid then c repairing to Mr B's, aubjec ded his trunks to the like srru n liny, altuuugh he waa arm< si with no proccaa authorising . Iiim to do either. Htratton said I must go to. Rochotiar with him to be ex- , unified, and I proposed to p roc tire an extra locomotive and , overtake the regular train at Auburn, that morning. To (| tnis he at first assented, hut afterward* declined doing it. ? During the day, I proposed to pay one half the expanse ol an extra train through t* Rochester, but he again object v ad. I then told him that to? avoid the expense of keeping j my friends at Auburn over night, I would procure an or ?, Jer for an extra traiu to Autiiurn, at ft o'ciock on Saturday inorning. To this he agreed, hut, to my great surprise, I learnod in the evemngthat he had procured aprivalc cenvcyaaco, ah I had lelt town fos Auburn, in comj>#ny with v a man by the name of Allen, who was with him -request p irur 'Hiiiiirfi Johnson of Nvrflituis before hi> uii-nt off ti. r 4<lrise me nut to go to Itochest ?i at ail, as tic >lid not be- t, linveany thing could be proved< against air.

HtSO,ag?ln, I wns still more surprised to learn that Stmtton had not waitivl for tho arrival of his prisoner, hut falsely repn 0 venting to the railway aupcrirl tmilcuts that he had left im f in custody of the Sheriff o/. Onondaga county, and that I had despatched an express to Rochester hy the Canal ,| route, to appriso my accompl ires of what ha! transpired r Uu ob'ained an extra locomotive and hurried bark with at ti much expedition us the the power of steam would admit. On our arrival at Rochester, a little past noon, |. ( |,, v lirlsunnr, be it remembered) instituted an enquiry for ths (, otlicer in whose keeping i considered myii If lie was tin Joilbtedly concealed, arid a/tor waiting an hour or t* o, Allen was sent tor and given to understand that his acquit- ,, lance from some share ol the responsibility incuired i, might depend upon the production of Hhatton. He a< fir t denied all knowledge ooStratton's whereabouts,but fin ally t, undertook to hunt hinr up, and alter a reasonable delay 0 succeeded. My counsel demanded that the warrant is- c sued for my arrest should be returned, and w# proceeded i| to the ottice of thn Police Justice for an axainiuation, , Stratton following with undisguised reluctance. Htrat- ? tou's return of the wairunt consisted in throwing it down ti oil the magistrate's table, when the District Attorney ol 7 Monroe county areae and stated, that ha had but Just then n been made acquainted with the fact and the circumstances t of ray arreat; that .had ha been orevlonaly consulted, he p could not have ad v| ted any such measure, that he doubtad d RE 1 riNG, JANUARY 28, 18) juriidlctlon of the court, u it did not appear by any I tnnony mat me stolen property uuu ever ueeii in iu= unty ; and he did not see bow au examination could be tared into, for nothing appeared to render any further loeeJinfa necessary or proper. The Police Juatice, Mr. mar, added the remark, that the warrant had been laid by Mr. P. O. Buchan, a Justice of the Peace, and that was entirely ignorant of the facts or grounds upon lich its issue was based ; that as there seemed to be no >secutor, and no evidence forthcoming *he had noaltertire but to dismiss the complaint. My counsel de inded that as dtratton was the person upon whose inloritlon the warrant had beea granted, he should be reired to substantiate his acusalion. if he had any proofs his possession, dtratton remained silent, and the case is accordingly discharged During all this proceeding, nothing was elicited to row any light upon the mysteries which enveloped the insactien. Stratum knew nothing, or would say noing?the Police Magistrate was entirely in the dark?the strict Attorney had only gained sufficient information satisfy him that the whole atfcir was wrong from the ginning ; and even the Justice who had grantad the irrant, alarmed at tha course which things were taking, clined to reveal the nature of the information which had luced him to issue the warrant ol arrest, though he saded by way of extenuation, that he had Instructed ratton not to execute the process, unless he could obtain ins additional information to make its expediency carn. We did, indeed, begin to hear some street rumors, and it there was a " woman in the case," but nothing tangi; or at all calculated to unfold the hidden character of a foul urocaedings against Mr. Bsnka and myself. We turnetl, therefore, without any other satisfaction than at of having our friends know what we knew before, st there weie no just grounds for implicating us in the bhery of the F'.x press Company. I was determined, however, to probe the matter to the ttom. Mr Forbea returned to Rochester and Buffalo to ititnte a thorough and searching investigation?be tving home on Monday, and 1 following him on Tueaday cuing We made Buffalo the first theatre ol our operans, but Mr. K. was informed in passing through Hoester, that a woman of had reputation, an associate and itriu^ent of counterfeiters and thieves, a Mrs. Leggett, d been in that city previous to my arrest, and seemed to vosome knowledge of what wus going on ; that she d been noticed to nave interviews with Clark Hobinson d it was reported that Robinson had paid her fifty dol * by way of a loan. At Buffalo, Sheriff' Brown was no ire will ng than before to disclose the source of the inrmation upon which the American Hotel had been arched. My counsel placed himself in communication ith the woman Leggutt, through a police officer of Buf o. and various persons were applied to for information d for assistance in developing tne facts In the course a day Hud a half, u large amount ol information was cumulated, which led to my firm belief that'dark Koison was cognizant of the whole transaction, and had, least, borne a nart in it from the beginning, if he did not iginatc the suspicions; and that he could, if he pleased, veal the entire mystery. Mr Robinson Is the brotherlaw of Pomeroy, and we found several of the most resctable and intelligent citizens of Buffalo possessed of e conviction that the search of the American Hotel, and e subsequent arrest of Mr Bonks ami myself bad been stigutod to produce a diversion, and to amuse the public ith expectations of discoveries at a new and distant lnt from the scene upon which the scrutinising and ixious eyes of the public were first concentrated. Eveadditional fact which the investigation disclosed in its ogress, went so strongly to implicate Mr. Robinson as e primo mover in this scheme, that In the afternoon of bursday, it was determined to summon him into our pre nee, and confront him with the revelations that pointer) strongly to his agency in the business He complied ith our request, and an interview accordingly was held our rooms In the American. Before stating in detail the conversation which took ace at this interview, it may be proper to go back and date some other information upon which this belief was unded When Mr. Forbes was on his passage up to Buffalo, he as inlorme I try Mr. Carter, the mail agent between Anarn and Buffalo, that on the preceding Thursday, (the h inst) he had seen Mr. Roninson at Rochester, and tat he (Robinson.) had requested him to detain and open iy letters which might come into his hands directed to ther myself or Mr. Banks; and as a reason for so doing ? thai cr.1. laKuiM, .r.inl.1 .11,>1... ..I ie Express robbery. Tho further information waa ieeived afterwards at Rochester, that a similar application its made to tho Postmaster there Mr. Andrews, and urgd with great earnestness. The next morning after the arrival of my counsel at nffiilo, he sent for Mr Haveni, the District Attorney of irie county, and communicated the object of his visit to iBtcity; that he was paiticulnrly desirous of ascertainlg fro.n Sheriff llrown the grounds upon which he protired the warrant to search Banks, as a knowledge of that ict might probably devulope the whole mystery?and he rquested Mr. Havens if ho thought he could do so with ropriety, to ask Brown to communicate this information. Ir. Havens refilled that he would send fur Brown audad ise him to make such disclosure if it could be dona with due regard to public Justice He farther said that he ad already conversed with Brown on the subject; that ame of ht< statements were of a confidential chai acter, nd such as he could not reveal, but that he fait at liberty j state that Brown liud told liim that the first suspicion lie ind received with regard to Bank's connection with the ohhery, was fro is Clark Robinson. Shortly after Robinson's coming into our room ns heore mentioned, Mr. Forbes told him the purpose of oui isit to Buffalo, and that we were particularly desirous o mowing the source of Sheriff Brown's information, lto unton replied, in substance, that it would not be worti vliiie to press that inquiry?that Brown would not dis lose it-and strongly advised that we should make m urther efforts in that quarter Mr. F orbes then made ai to Robinson, as my fiiend. to assist in discovering lie cause which led to my arrest, and in vindicating my haracter from suspicion Robinson declared his willing less to do so, and uttered denunciations against those wh< iad been instrumental in getting up the story. Wethet iskod him if at any time he had entertained suspicion! igainit me in reference to this robbery; he replied, no he slightest?that I was oneof the last men in the Stab s horn no should suspect of any such crime, and if his cer ificate to that effect would be of any value, it would ai ord him very great pleasure to make one in writing Ve then asked him if he had any objection to tell us ai is knew ofthe matter: he expressed Ins readiness to do so ind want on to say, that about noon on Sunday, the .llsi if December last, he accidentally met me in the rear of thr tmerican Hotel at Buffalo, and that I told him that She iff Brown had that morning searched Banks'baggage hat 1 seemed to find fault with the Sheriff, and that he (lto linson) told me that Sheriff Brown, as a public officer, had irobahly been compelled to do what he had done, and hat he ought not to be blamed. (This conversation, I i ell recollect, occurred as it is here repeated), Mr. Ho. linsou declared, in express terms, that tins was the firsi inowledge or intimation he ever had of such a proceed ng as the i??ue of tho warrant, or the search, or the exls ence of any suspicions against Banks In answer to particular enquiries, he further stated, tha ie had not been to Rochester during the last week on any limine** connected with the F)xpresi robbery ; that hi vent down on his official engagements ; that he had n? icquaintance with the woman, Leggett, other than thai ie had seen Iter; that he never conversed with her in re rard to this matter ; that he had neither said or done any hing at Rochester upon this aubject, and did not boots hatliis Deputy Stratton. had gone to Syracuse to aires ne, and, in short, wholly and unqualifiedly disclaimed al igency in or knowledge of the circumstances undei which the suspicions had originated. At this time we informed Mr Robinson, that we had eason to believe that he was the author of the accusation ind had not only eriginated the suapiciona against Bank* int had got up the arrests which had since been made H< eemed surprised at this, but upon being pressed for ex ilanatiora of the facts previously obtained by us. am vhich he was before ignorant had come to our knnwledgi -being met with refutations of his assertions, by referenci o conversations, acts and incidents which be suppose, is to be ignorant of, though he knew them to lie true, hii ssurance fell, as one astounding disclosure follow ed an ither, until he seemed everwhelmed with confusion Hi dmitted, for example, that he had made the request to f hi ravelling Post Master to intercept my letters, although hi nd just vehemently protested that he had never suspect d m?, and hail no knowledge of the means by which th? rrests had been effected. This ho was willing to certify nd did indeed give me a certificate absolving me wholly rom suspicion In his own mind at any time, and all times nit withstanding the facta I have stated in regard to tht ? / .nuuiuo <-<,nn..; ........ ........ oinoidence occurred at the same time Our agent to com nun icalo with the woman, (whoof rour-e had no intelli ence of our connexion with him) wa* instructed to cn |tiire whether she had received and could produce anv ettera from me. as we had heard through other rhanncli hat she pretended to he in correspondence with me. nnr ad ahown one ortwo letter* purporting to he in mv hand the repl ed at oner, with an emphasis?"Don't you know hat Runt never write* any letters?" In the first interview trith Mr. Robinson, at atunn* when I was |not present, al tuion was madnhy my counsel to eertain Infers said tr i<> in existence, written by me, when Mr Robinson re nined in almost preciarly the language of the woman ? Do you not know that Itu?t never writes nny letters?' I am aware of that " sstd my counsel, Mr Forbes, "and cntureto assert, Mr Koliinson, that no other citizen n lufl'alo, tiesidea yourself and Mrs l.eggatt, knows thai act?and yon told her of It Mr R seemed coufoundr. y this remark, and uttered not a syllable in reply. During th!a conversation, after repeated a# <evera'lon' f his belief in my innocence, and that no suspicion oughi r could proiierly attach to me, my counsel remarking hat Mr. Itohinson did not exculpate Mr. Hanks in th? sms manner, said to him, " Mr Robinson, however tin asr may turn out as respects Rust, you have a very serins account to settle with Ml Ranks, for you had noJti?* rounds of suspicion against him " He replied iminedi. f?ily?" T hwd no ground* of suspicion, I admit. p.vcrp' hat ho win in Now York, ind left on the morning of tho ohhory." This remark ho repented riming the conversa on. I wish to a'sto another fact which has loft a strong con iction upon my minri that tho design ?f Rohtnson wa. i keep alive tho suspicion which had boon createdlin ' ie, and to prevent such a log*) reposition of tho circumI unco* un lor which tho accusation arose, as to ennhle 10 to vindicate my Innocence In lontr proper iwd tengi le form. Tho riay before wo loft RtitTslo Mr Havens, the Din net Attorney, stated to my rooniel, that Mr Woila. on' f the partner* of the Express enrrpany, residing In tha' ity. had heard so much said in regard to thia business hat he thought it due to all parties that there should he legal examination ; that aa I was in the city, and the romsn F.egirott, also, from whom the pretended iriformalon wa* derived. he was in fovor of an investigation 'nia waa gratifs ing intelligence to me. aa I had been earratly aeeking lor aome mode by which 1 could arrive at knowledge of the cauae of this extraordinary and mys srlotia persecution. The District Attorney stated in edition, that than waa to be a meeting at hi* office at two HERA 44. o'clock for the purpose of determining upon the propriety I of lUCb an inveiUgetion, and that he would induce the partiee, It poaaihlu, to content that my counsel ahouhl be udmitted to the discussion, and would send lor him ut that time if it should be agreeable to them. The meeting took fdace, and Mr Wells, as he has informed me since, strong, y urged the propriety and necessity of this examination, but it was successfully resisted by Kobinauu. on the 5round that it would be productive of no benefit, and uuer the pretence that it might defeat the exertions which were to be continued under the direction of Mrs. gett During the last day anJ a half of our stay at Butlalo, Hob neon was much in our room, and continued to piofess his sympathy for me. and hia anxiety to do any thing in his pow er to re-estahliih iny reputation. He denounced in no measured terms the conduct of his deputy, titration, and declared that when he went to Rochester, he would remove hint from ottice. On Saturday morning, 14th instant, we led Buffalo, and ceme back to Rochester, accompanied by Robinson Immediately after our arrival,Robinson received a letter from titration resigning his office of Deputy Marshal, and re. turning his acknowledgments for the confidence lie had reposed in him. tn the course of the afternoon. Robinsou informed me that Stratton was about to publish a statement showing the circumstance* under which my arrest was made, and expressing his conviction of my innocence, and he (Robinson) tequested, it he did putdish such u statement, that I would consent to his restoration to office Having finally became fully convinced of RobinI sun's ihinlintT t ils?r*Ilns>tl nnv InrtKup pnmmnniratiAn with him. 80011 after our arrival we received, for the first time, from Justice Buchan, a copy of the affidavit, written out in due form, made by Stratton as a foundation for the i*-,u tug of the warrant. By a note n|rpcndod to tin- Mime, it appeared that no affidavit was subscribed and sworn to in the uttiai manner. at the time the warrant was granted, but it was issued upon an orHl stiitemeut ol tarts under outh, and this paper contained the substance ?t what was sworn to I now had obtained,after the delays and labors ol a week, and for thu first time, a substantial clue to the web 1 was trying to unfold, and it formed a basis upon which I could, with some degree of intelligence and coitainty,proceed to institute further inquiries. This affidavit states that on the 3d day of January, Btrat ton appeared before Justice Buchan, and made oath that for some time past he had employ od one Gilbert H Moore, of thu city of Rochester, as a spy lor the purpose of detecting counterfeiters ; that this man Moore had called upon Stratton very late on Monday night, (1st Jan ) and informed bim that a woman by the name of Leggett, who was notoriously engaged in counterfeiting, Bnd well known tothe police, nad arrived in Rochester, and he had obtained her ooufidcnce ; that this womuu had disclosed to Moore, on Ills making a solemn oath of secrecy, that she knew the persons who hail s olen the money ol I'omeroy 8t Co. ; that these persons were myself. Banks and < opp ; that we were all ou board the staumhout on the North River at the time the money was taken ; that I got the trunk and carried it or its contents to the Astor House in New York, where 1 remained some days ; that after* wards I came west, and remaining only a short time at Syracuse, I had gone to Butlalo, with Banks, and took with mu the money and the Union Bank bills ; that when I arrived at Buffalo, I had railed on this woman, UwBt and had engaged her to All up the notes of the Union Hank, and had furnished her with the sheets?and that the object was to send off thu notes when so tilled up to tho Western States, to ba put In circulation , that she. being EI raid to fill up the sheets at Buffalo, had come on to Rochester for that purpose, by agreement w ith me; that the woman showed tho sheets to Moore, and that Moore took one of them, and exhibited the same to Stratton ; arid Stratton swore before the justice that the sheet so exhibited to him was a sheet of the Union Bank ol New York Stratton swore further, that he could not retain the sheet Knnuttiii) Maapii Karl tn rsitnrn flies names fn tin* tL'nmnti tn prevent her suspicions , that Moore had toM him that th woman hail communicated to him, (Moore) that Banks and myself would come from Buffalo to Rochester, the next day, and would bring the money with u?, and that it wan our intention to deposite the name withfone Stevens in Rochester. Stratton further testified, that on the next day I came in the cars from Buffalo, hut hr was unable to discover Banks ; that he was informed and believed that Banks had come off' the cars at Churchville, about twelve miles west of Rochester, and that he would come into the citv in the evening in a buggy ; and that he Stratton, believed the money was in >ne possession ol Banks. He further swore, that on my arrival at Roches ter, I put up at the Eagle Tavern, and that a deputy She riff had come from Buffalo on the track of the woman and was then closely watching her by reason ol some suspicious circumstances that hud occurred at Buffalo. He swore, moreover, that he had watched us us well as lie could, but had lost trock of me in the forenoon of Tue? day; that he had inquired at the Eagle Tavern and had been fold that I had left the uime day in the cars for Sj ra cuse, but that on inquiring at the Hailioud Depot, he was informed and believed that 1 had not luft in the cars fm Syracuse, and that [ was then concealed in the city, unti Banks should arrive in the evening when, after ileiswi ting the money, we would rioss over to Pittsford, or somi other stopping place, on the railroad, and then go on tc Syracuse He swore, also, that he was the mora confident in this belief from the fact that lie hail been informed believed, that I been seen to look into the theatre, ot Tuesday evening, to which plane the woman had gone and that 1 immediately came out and went off in a had towards Cornhill. Ha further swore, that On the day o his making thii oath, which was on Wednesday the Sd o lanuary, ho had been informed hy Moore and believed that I had seen the woman the day before nt her room fo a few minutes, and had told her it would not do for me t be seen speaking to her ; that I said n Rochester bull-do was watching me. and that I would have to he off. an that I wantedher as soon as I could get oft' without susp cion, to come to my house at Bv racuse, and I would prr cure a room lor her there where she could sign the note without detection He swore, in addition, that Moor told him that she, the woman, now knew where the pit ney was, hilt he was utraid to question her too closely lest her suspicion of his fidelity might he raised, lint h would find out In the course of the day. He stated, hi sides, that he wished to start for Syracuse to he there hi fore her, and if she came and stopped at iny house, h wished to bo armed with tome authority by which h could act on an emergency, and therefore' prayed a wai rant for my arrest?w hich warrant w as accordingly ii sued by the Justice. From the examination of this most extraordinary nai ration, with its detailed and minute specifications ol prr tended farts and rircumstsnces, I began to comprrhem 'he true character and extent of the means which hai been devised to destroy me, and of the utter recklessne* and depravity of the agents engaged in the conspiracy The woman Leggett, who it was represented had giver the information. I had never seen to my knowledge or re collection, nor had I ever heard of her until after the ar rest. The man, Moore, was alike unknown to me, eithe personally or hy reputation. On enquiring nt Rochester the place of his residence, we leatneo that tin was a mise ruble street loafer, of respectable parentage, but who hy I long course ol vice and degrading associations, had be come an outcast from his lumily and the community irotind hiui. and was in every respect unworthy of th* least credit upon any subject In rending the affidavit, however, we discovered the Stratton, who had obtained thn w arrant, had sworn, a* o his own knowledge, to one material and important f ict and that was that Moore had exhibited to him (Stratton one oi the unsigned sheets oi the Unien Bank an.t he g i* is a reason why he had not produced it to the Justice i I confirmation of the truth of his story, that he could not rs tain the sheet because Moore hMd to return the same t the woman to avoid suspicion On enquiry we aseertnir ed that Btratton, after my arrest, had repeated this stati ment to others in justification of himself in making th complaint, hut on our arrival nt Rochester, on Saturday he 13th inst , when he discovered that the matter w as t be thoroughly investigated, he stated for the firs'tirm rs far as we could learn, that he had never teen the shee' in question, and that|the Justice was mistaken in his r collection that he, (Stratton) had sworn to any inch far Decerning satisfied that he had so compromised himsel when he obtained the warrant, and had on several ore <ions stnted the snmc thing to others, I entered s cor daint against him furthe perjury, and brought him lief'oi 'he police magistrate of Rochester An examinational cordingly took plnee, when Justice Bttchan swore pos 'ively that Stratton had so testified, and that it was mail !y iqion this particular fact he granted the w arrant for m irrest and that he would not have grunted it bad lie Dl sworn that he had actually sum the sheet Buchan tu flier testified, that Stratton had stated 'he same fart tw ic . it least, the day before the warrant w us issued, and tht he stated to the Justice that he thought he could again gr 'he sheet into his possession. forthe purjiose of exhihi'ini it to him ; hut that he called afterwards and said thn Moore had returned the sheet to the womsn, and I was afraid to ask her for it, as it might axcite her itiipi cjons I It wns also proved on the examination that Stra'toi had told Gen Stevens of Rochester that he had aetn illy seen this sheet ; that it was a sheet of the t'nien Bank o New York,duly countersign*d at the ft,mptroller'soffice ind that on < ien.

I That he stated the same thing to >evrral other persons | and on different occasions, I have abundant evidence \ The man Moor* was also celled aa a witness, and hestn I ted that the cnminiirwration* made hy the w uman 'o birr e> they are substantia'!)' put forth In Btratton'* alfldavi' w ere correct, except thnt Moore swore that although hi had told Stratton he hid seen tain of theso sheet*. yet In did not see any such thing that he had told a lie to Btrst ton, and that his only object in doing so. was to make th story a little stronger. Monro swore also, thnt the woman stated to him. thn Deputy Sheriff Stewart had come down from Buffslo h Rochester, and was then w atching her, and that in orde to avoid him, she wished to gel a private room ; and fur titer that at her request, he (Moore) had gone ovei to tin Eagle tavern to see Robinson ; that some person had rn her once a note hut that she was out w hen it came- th i It must have come from Robinson an that he (Moore) accordingly went over and loin Robin son He (Rohm-on) said it first tbat he did not know si was in tows; that he was will acquainted s* ) in would go nnd se> her , that he wen' over with the wn nss.and Mr* !. gg'-tt introduced linn to Robinson Moore went out of the room and left Robinson an th woman together.

Having ascartalned the day before from Pott muter Ax* drewa, that such a latter bad been mailed to ma at tlyra cum, and it not having been teceived in conirquenae of my absence from homo, I immediately tent an express to Syracuse lor the letter. It was found in the hand* of ay clerk unopened, and forwarded to me in that atate, whan it was opened by my counsel and produced on the examination. The letter was in these words, u Utnatim, kev? rocmcstkb jan ?, 1844.

Vours with Due esteem llill fT On prosenting this letter to Moore, he recognised It aa the one to which hu had relerred, hut ha then awon that be did not know who wrote the letter, and denied that ha had said that Mrs. Leggett wrote it? although he admitted that the direction was in hit hand w riting. Befoie the examination ot tilraUou had taken plica, having been inlormed that the woman, Leggett, had received moiiev Irons Hobinson and odim >k fence of making disclosures, I earned a warient to be Ulued for bci appichentiou lor obtaining money under false pretences, and sbe was accordingly brought down from Buffalo to Rochester on Wednesday laat. 1 also caused a ?iiL>|tcenH lobe aerved on Sheriff Brown and Deputy Sheriff Stuwart ol Buffalo, to appear and tea tify on her examination.
