The jury returned a smiled verdict in tin* cate at ihe opening ol the Court, and rendered un award of $ot>0 damages to the plaintitr The jurors summoned for the next case, were then called, anil nine of the pannel not answering to their namea, they were severally fined $15 for nun attendance. The case of fan Colt vs. Shatp being the next in order on the calendar, it was called on by Judge Kent, and alter the jury were empanelled, a young gentleman in a frock coat, with black hair of a most intense gloss, and a very decided curl, rose and opened the case in a speech, which he read in a low under tone from a tolerably volumnlous manuscript which he held in his hand. Krum this, those who pa,d a most desperate atteution were enabled to glean the facts, that it was un action for criminal conversation with the plaintiff's wile, brought by Albeit B. Van Cott against William H. Sharp, and that the damages lor this nuirum trespass wm taut at ??IO,0?H>.

After the conclusion of the opening, .Mr. De Witt, for the plaintiff, called to the stand Jacob Petit?This witness stated that he knew Van Cott and nis tvife: but upon being asked if he were present nt the time of their inurriage, suddenly sunk his head and made no answer. I'non the qnertion being repented he replied that lie was ill, and upon being inquired of, if that was the reaaon of hia not answering the question, replied in the negative, stating that he reluaed to answer it. The question was then put again. This time the witness answered reaJily that he had been present at the time of the marriage, and that the ceremony took place in 1832 in Mnngin street. Doctor Moktoosiekt J. Baieey was next called. The Doctor testified that he lias known the plaintiff lor a number of years?the former as much as 14 or lu, and the latter lOor 14. NThey resided, formerly, iu Division street in this city, after which they removed to Williamsburgh in 1830, when the alledged criminal conversation, for which this action is brought, was committed Van Cott, who is a jeweller, is the cousin of his wife, and s great degree of intimacy up to a period previous to the last two years, had existed between them. Van Cott kept boarders iu Williamsburgh, and among tliem in 1841, was a young man nnmed William H. Sharp. This gentleman, tbe Doctor testifies to having first seen, in his frequent visiting* to the house, in 1841, ami also to having seen him in must of his subsequent visitings to the same place. In Ine middle of a day in the month of August, 1841, the Doctor entertd the back basement of tbe house, and passing a colored female servant whom he met nt the door, went to the front basement room, where the family usually lived and took their meals: the door was partly iijar, and on looking in the perceived that the room was somewhat darkened by the drawing to of the shut tors; he went in, and as he did so, Mrs Van Cott stepped from the sofa on which Sharp lay reclining at length, and alter opening the shutter, turned to a dressing glass in another corner of the room to arrange her hair, which bung down her back, and regulate her dress, which was open at the neck and slipping off her shoulders. Sharp started up at first, with some degree of astonishment, nut upon ascertaining the characterof the visiter, sunk buck again with the remark of "oh, ^thought it was VanF ? It was Van Cott'* custom to make a journey to the south every winter on business, and this season he went away some time in October or November, to return in the following spring. During his absence the Doctor saw Sharp there several times. On the 1st January, 1841, the Doctor and his wife visited Van Cott's house. Hharp, who had been out all the evening, returned at II o'clock? shortly after which, or at twelve o'clock, the Doctor ami his wife went to bed, leaving a Mr. BellJ Mrs. Van Cott, and the alleged seducer down stairs in the basement. The former followed immediately cftet wards, and went up to his room ; but Sharp was not henrd to ccme up stairs thaughthe doctor lay awake a long time, and thinks he mutt have heard him if he did so. Oil the lollowitig morning on going down in the basement, lie found Mr. Ueil. Sharp and Mr*. Van Cott there. Sharp wu* sitting near the fire, nnd remarked " that he felt like the devil, as he had not gone to bed till near 4 ?"block in the morning " The doctor further testified to having seen shv n hug nnd kiss Mrs . Van Co'.t once or twice, and; 'hat tie had teen him otherwise rude and viirward, iiiul < ?t?u, nidi v an vun * iremmeni 01 MR will Wdl Kllia Hint affectionate lnroishitig her with teacher* m muiic, dancing, language*, Sic Thi* ended the direct testimony of the w itness, and the counai'l torthe defendant entered into a rigid cross-exami nation, in thecour*e of which a xtrong and persevering effort wax made to ?h?w the intimate connexion* oi interest between the witness and the plaintiff for the putpoteof caxtingdiacredit upon his testimony. The Doctor further stated that lie did not inform Van (.'ott before lie (Van Cott) went South, of the scene in the basement, bur intimated to him the propriety of taking his wile with him ; but when Van f'ott returned, sometime in the monrh of May, he told him all about it. This information the witness testified to having given to Van Cott pre vious to the writing of a letter to Sharp (in answer to one which Sharp wrote him on hearing the nature of the doctor'sdisclosures to the husband) which denied having said an) thing to implicate his (Sharp's) honor with Van < 'ott, or the character of the intimacy between him and the wile. In the interview with Van Cott. the doctor testiiied that wlien cautioning him against Sharp, he had said that he wished to be distinctly understood that he made no direct assertion against the honor of either party, and that he did not believe that anything wrong had taken place. This led to an interview between the whole three, Van Colt, the Doctor and the defendant. in which the same, language wax repeated b> 'lie Doctor. This was sometime in the month of May. Sharp denied that he sat up with Mrs, Van (lott on the New Year's evening, and also denied every tiling else cal culated to implicate him. Th? Doctor further testified that at the time of the basement scene, a Miss Waldron and a Miss Ityder resided at Van Cott's, und that Van i ott and he had h falling out in conse<|uenre ol his wounding Van Cotl'a faith by making these disclosure* in regard to liia wife. The Doctor further testified that Miss Waldron wrote him a letter, informing lum that Sharp bad taken improper liberties with his w ife?that he called on Sharp lhout it, who denied the charge in toto, and declared that he would see Mist Waldron and have the matter explained, and that afler this Sharp wrote him a letter, telling liirn that Miss Waldron would soon w rite herself ami ex. plain all. I'pon the top of all this, Van Cott writes a let 'or to Sharp, blowing every body to the devil who should lare to impugn the honor of his wife, and him, his friend Mrs. Bails called.?This witness was the wife of the last witness, and testified to the New Vear'? night scent, ind also to having seen Sharp ki??

A* to the New Year's night bttsines*, the lady testified to having laid awake till three o'clock in the morning, for the express purpose of listening to hear whether Sharp came to lied or no; but that she was cerain that up to that hour he did not mount the xtairn; that the went down in the basement in the morning, and there found Sharp in his pantaloons, alone, in rcmpanv with Mrs. Van Catt, Mr. Bell, Mis* Waldron, and Mi*s ftyder Mr. Shnrp made no answer to her husband's (Dr. Bniley's) pieation, afterwards, ?s to what had kept him up so late; lut Mr*.

Capital Punishment?Murder*, and to on. I have waited to see if your tegular correspondent took notice of certain movements that are exciting much attention in the polite circles in the Quaker city. As he has not, I will supply his lack of service. The cuteness of Philadelphia lawyers and the peculiar ability of her financiers, is too well known to the universe Ht large, and through our solar system in particular, to need any extended illustration. Particular facts, therefore, should he related only to keep up the reputation of our city. For a genteel seduction, a thrilling murder, n demonstration of the insanity of all rogues, and ours in particular ; a refined suicide, for which the most elaborate preparation is made; a neat bankruptcy, or a capital forgery, or breach of trust, we defy the competition of New York, Buffalo, New Orleans, or ( rand Cairo itself. When to all these attractions you add the brilliancy of our literature?the refinement ol general society, and the beauty of our Quaker girls, you cannot wonder that tieorge Munday prophecies that the inillentutn is to commence here, in 1843. But I am wandering from my objects. A few days since, the latest case of financiering came to light. It is the first instance on record of xtensive forgeries committed by n colored mantor lie cannot he called a negro. The guilty party is James Forten, son of tit*' late respected nnd wealthy sail milker of that name. The father way universally resitected for his probity and his btiMness talents, lie left quite a large property to his children. His two sons continued hisbitsiness, and with much success; having cleared several thousand dollars the past year. A few days ago it was ascertained that some #15,000 to #120,000 of their paper was in circulation, bearing the forged endorsement of their brother-inlaw, who is a colored man of great wealth and very honorable character. It appears that the oldest brother committed the forgeries, without any suspicion on the part of his brother. The money was not applied to their business at all. Several thousand dollars have been traced to lottery offices? those curses to society, and especially to the colored |>eoplr of our cities?where Forten hail wasted some S 10,000 within nine months past' Investigation, however, shown that be is only one party to these frattda.

What may we not hope from the progress if education in the course of a few years ! The contest between the friends and Ines of tanging,waxeejwarm in this Stale. Thedchates >n this topic attract large audiences to the Frankin Institute, muscam and other places, two or three mies a week.

Now, a large numher of the other sects ire ranged on the name side, including ninny <d air worthiest clergymen and most philanthropic ilizens.
