Tlie Grand Inquest iu and for the City and County of New York, lake occasion to represent That after having disposed of ail the subjects submitted to their direct consideration by the proper officers of the Court of which they formed a pat t, they proceeded in the further discharge f their duty to visit the City Prison connected with and forming pert of the building in Centre street, called the Halls of Justice?that from their own supervision, as well as Irom persoual inquiry, of those who are confined there, they have not Ixien able to discover that there is at this time any bad treatment of the prisoners, or any want of food or other suitable provision for their sustenance; and that so far forth us such n term can be applicable to such a place, the inmates inny he considered in a comparatively comfortable condition. They proceeded from thence to viaita place in Kldridge street, culled the Jail or Debtor's Prison, of which a Deputy Sheriff is the Keeper, where persous are coaflued who are alleged to tie in contempt of Cenrt, or who cau not or will not pay militia fines imposed by Courts Martial?persons who are prosecuted upen Civil Suits for Libel, Trover, tcc.?witnesses detained upon trials pending in the United Stated Courti for the Southern District of New York?persons who are unable to procure Bail upon such miti, and are obliged to remain in prison until their case* are finully diapoaed of in the ordluary courae of the administration of Juatice, either through the Court of Law or K.quity. The Grand Inquest represent that many persona have been detained in this place for a long time, and are of opinion, thai if the necessity of the case requires that persons should be imprisoned under these circumstances, they should he provided with accommodation and sustennnce somewhat better during the period of their confinement than convicted murderors nnd the worst of felons. The place called the jail or prison is in no respect superior to the tombs, or to the penitentiary upon filackwell's Island. There are but three very small apartments, about nine feet square, which are exclusively occupied by those who are able to pay for the luxury ol this accommodation; while those who are unable to pay are confined in cells with littiefliglit and less ait?the dimensions of which are about six feet by nine. The building is upon a lot 25 by 100 feat, and being in the centre of a block, is incapable of ventilation except from the front and rear ; and within this place is a privy or water closet, which in the last winter was frozen up. These cells occupy both sides of the house, and there is n passage about six or seven feet wide, in which the prisoners are permitted to walk until the time of night when the Deputy Sheriff choose* to lock them up, and in some of these small cells two, and sometimes three, are compelled to sleep. The locality of the jail or debtors' prison, is in a part of the city not particularly well ventilated?is inconvenient by reason of its distance from the courts, and to those who are so unfortunate as to be confined there, is especially injurious, in removing them to an obscure and distant region where it is almost impossible to obtain professional advice, and from which it is not easy for a poor man to send Blotter except by an appeal to the humanity of the keeper.? The Grand Jury believe that cases of ilagrant outrage have occurred through the agency of mea who call themselves lawyers, but who are a disgrace to humanity, as well as an honorablo profession, witli a view of extorting money from those who have been entangled in their toils. They have no reason to complain of the keeper; but they think the Commissioners of tlie Alms-House, who are the almoners of public charity, should see that persons of the description above alluded to, should have better food than was tasted hv some of the Grand .lllrv witin innniml lnl.i their condition. They beg leave to present the place called the jail or debtors' prison, its an intolerable nuisance? a disgrace to a chi istiau community?and a dark spot upon republican civilization of the 19th century in this part of the United States. The Grand Jury, in the further discharge of their duty, proceeded to examine the Alms-House establishment at ihdlevue, the Lunatic Asylum and Prison at Blackwell's Island, and the schoel and establishment for the education of orphan and destltuto children at the Long Island farms. They aecompauy with this their presentment, a statement of the statistics of these establishments, under the immediate charge of the Commissioners of the Alms-House. It appears from this report thnt there are almost 1,700 persons, called paupers, within the precincts of Bellevue ; some 1,900 convicts and vagrants at Blackwell's Island, and lunatics and poor children at the Karma and on Blackwell's Island, amounting in the aggregate to 4,-1JA parsons, exclusive of those who are paid for taking care ol them ? The expenses of the Altns-liouso and the various departments under the charge of the Commissioners for the last year, as ascertained from the Comptroller's accounts, terminating upon the 1st of January, lRt4, including $1,000 expended upon a building, is $ii 1,000. The expenses for the year 1842 were $238,000. In the examination by the Grand Jury of the practical operation and the executive administration of a system which they think their Icllow citizens will condemn as radically defective?so fur forth as those who have charge ol them are concerned, they saw little to find fault with except an insuf'icirnt ventilation and want of cleanliness in the Hospital of the male department in the establishment at Bellevue, which is entirely inexcusable, at there is an abundant supply ol the Crotou water flowing through the grounds of the establishment. They cannot forbear, however, to accord to the Matron of the Long Island Karma? Mrs. Lee?the just tribute of respect unit rnntidenc* wbi?U she h?? ? ??? ?? J by ' years of assiduous service in that noble charity. Nor yit would they do justice, if they were to fail to place upon public, record, so far as in them lies, the high satislaction they derived from a carolul examination of the Lunatic Aiylum upon Blackwcll'i Island, under the charge of Dr. K.Immill J. Stewart. This gentleman ha* adopted, and successfully pursued the modern improvements, and the more humane treat ment, of theae moat unfortunate of our race And tha In atituto itself?although requiring great enlaigementwaa found to he moat remarkable for clcnnlineaa, neat nuaa, and order,and it ia moat fortunate in being entrusted to auch intelligent superintendence. The Grand Jury would fain hope, that no future event* may remove Dr Stewart from this field of useful, and philanthropic labor Tliey present among other things that the Corporation ordinance* are daily violated by encumbering the public streets with projecting signs, temporary structures upon sidewulka ; vagrant children, male and female, who Commit petty larceny upon the dorks and wharves, who are in the process of living educated for the State Prison and the Penitentiary. They present the Ilarpiea around the Tombs, and the Vampires that exhaust the last drop of blood from theii victims, through the Law's delay, and hope that the Le. gislators of the land may iuterpo?e some remedy for ovila which all feel and none as yet have had the courage to redress. The Grand Jury regret that the enormous frauds and wholesale rob!ones that have lately been perpetrated by those who have been entrusted with the property of widows and orphans, in the form of stock in Trust Compn. niesand other monied corporations, have not yet been brought under their notice?and that while they havs been occupied in hringing the smaller offenders to justice men who have grown rich upon the spoils of the plunder ed, should escape the judgment of the law.

P| Superior Court. Before Chief Justice Jones. Friday, Feb. 43.?Archer Guion rt The Alluire U'orkt Company ?This was nn action to recover moneys deposited, and wugea for services rendered. The plaintiff was the engineer of the defendants, at their Steam P.ngine factory, and had deposited with the treasurer of thecompany two sums ol money, amounting to $1560, also a balance of $112 for services rendered. The defence set up is, that the plaintiff, who had the sole charge of thepattema, models, and such property ofthe company, hud destroyed the marks and injured ami defaced the drawings, Stc. to the amount of $16,000. They, therefore, set up this as an offset, The Chief Justice not being fully aware how tar the .Supreme Court had carried the question of rtcoopmenl, thought it was a question which would very properly come hp before the court for decision; and with the sonsent ofthe parties to the suit, a verdict was taken for the plaintiff subject to the opinion of the court, as to ihe legality of the admission of such a defence as that offered. For plaintiff, Mr. .McKeon. For defendants, Mr. Cutting. Circuit Court. Before Judge Kent. F?;b. 23.?Moot Drty ft. (t'hrittophtr F was an action of trespass. The plaintiff is what is generally termed a "Jew pedlar," and tha defendant is ajdapper^dry goods clerk in Ores 11 wich street. About n year ego, Moses, in his rounds, called at the store of Mr. Clements, No. 267 Greenwich street, to dispose of some l'aacy cravats, and such other wares as he could get a customer for. While sitting beside the stove, conversing with Clements, Lee came iu from an adjourning store, and, in rather a taunting manner, told Moses that he could buy at auction the same goods at a less price than he was asking for them. This Nloses dissented to, and here arose the difficulty. Clements thinks that Moses said, "1 don't believe you?you are always telling me so;" to which Lee replied "What! do you mean to tell me 1 lie? 1 will wring your nose for you;" and was suiting the action to the word, when Moses lifted his hand, us if to ward off the blow, in doing which, it is alleged on the part of the defendant that he struck him with the scissors, which he had iu his hand j and that, to repel the blow thus given, Lee punished him bv giving him a pair of black eyes, a bloody nose, and a swelled moutli, for which Moses asks damages at the hands ot ajury. Mr. Graham, on behalf of the defendant, contended, that although no words s|ioken could justify a blow, yet in the present case the assault with the scissors, added to the usual bad language of the plaintiff, rendered the assault a mere technical one, and but subject to nominal damages. On the other hand, Ills Honor the i Mayor, (who is about to retire from the whirligig of political life to resume his practice as a member at tne bur,) i contended that the ussault w as ail aggravated one. Lee was u stout, athletic young man, who had practised the "manly science" at a <'anal streut gymnasium, anal knew how to i nlunt Ills blows with better effect. The rcinutks of llii Honor were in a vein ?f mingled ridicule Rtid satire, which told upon the jury, and they gave Moses tf>76 damages.
