Lath Affair of Hoxoe.?We have a communiration on this subject, from a reliable source, correcting some slight eriors in our previous statement, which we shall publish to-morrow. ProgrtM vf F InoiicUl Science?Worth American Truit Co. We publish in this day's paper the statement recently issued by Mr. Talmage, the ex-President of the North American Trust Co. This is a very clear and intelligible statement, and may be considered Mother step in the advancement of financial science In which so much ignorance has existed from hm<* immemorial in Wall street. The various Stat uients in relation to this Company, issued by the Receiver, by Mr. Graham, and now by Mr. Talnai , are so many little crevices, letting in light, mahutg us acquainted with important facts, all muting in helping us to an exhibition of the ignorance and charlatanism which has characterised all t!i" financiers of Wall street up to the present day. We do not mean to treat this subject as a per onal matter. It is more a scientific subject, and Hie of the most important, too, which can attract the stitdy of the men of the present age. It is the science of common sense as applied to banking and financial affkirs. Now, in this point of view, admitting that all the managers of the North American Trust Co., from the commencement, acted in good faith; yet they have given us sufficient evidence already by which we are justified in coming to the decided conclusion, that a set of greater financial charlatans never did exist than those connected with this Company in Wall street. In this category, wc do not exactly mean to include Mr. Talmago, for he, it seems, was brought in when the Company was trembling on the verge of ruin by had management, for the purpose of endeavoring? by his activity and business talents?to redeem it from destruction. So far as fie is acquainted |>eroonally with it, he gives a very rlear and satisfactory explanation of the afl'a.r. And wc very willini.iv rma? him before the community as entitled to all the benefit thus acquired. The whole of this business of the North American Tru.-t Co. and others, only affords additional illustration of the gross ignorance which prevails on ail financial subjects amongst the very men in Wall street who profess to know every thing about these matters. They are so completely overwhelmed in their own little, petty, personal operations, in particular stocks and narrow minded views, that ;t is impossible for any limn in Wall struct to have a comprehensive or correct view of the state of the country at any particular period. Take for example the very class of men who originated this company. Who are they 1 What are they 1 What arc their capacities? What evidence have they ever given of their talents 1 This set of men who started the North American Trust Co. and other similar concerns, were those who went to Albany, and procured the enactment of a law called "the Free Hanking Law," for the express purpose of endeuvoring to preserve the hubbies of IfCtfi from bursting, and to continue the inflation for another period of tune. They fell into the sam error and exhibited the same ignorance as did tiic managers of the United Stales I3.nk?that was attempting to bolster up paper credits when the community had lost all confidence in them. The Soufh->m Trust Co.?the Morris ('anal and Hanking Co?and a variety of other institutions in Wall street, were all organised and managed with the same decree of ignoraee anrl w ant of tact, and all cam? to ruin from the same causes. Yet with these examples before us?with the rema I is of these institutions filling the atmosphere with pestilence and rottenness, we see the same men r.ow in Wall street endeavoring to inflate similar bubbles, and go over the aamc road of ignorance, folly and disaster! When will there be an end to all this? O'Coxnei.l's Famovs Speei u.?We republish today, the famous speech made by Pan O'Connell on his tr.al in Dublin?and we do so in order to supply th* craving appetite of his countrymen and lovers for this bonne Itourhe. Heretofore it has been only published in the third udiiion of our last Weekly and in the Sunday edition, but to reach all readers I we give it again entire to-day. Uy the way?we perc-ivc flint some of the Philadelphia pajiers, like some wise acres here, consider the speech a hoax. Her" is one:? A Hni.?Th? most stupendous hoax which has been palme I upon a gullible communitysince Locke discovered the inhabitants in the moon, is O'Connell's speech, which was published at length in several of the papers (large and small) of this city. A penny contemporary with its usual foresight, kept all hands hard at work on Sen fay night far the purpose of issuing an extra on Monday morning. Tney aid so, and have no doubt found out by this time, that they have been most ngregiously hum begged. The speech was manufactured in New* Vork, aa.f although not the great Agitator's, It has created much aeosatior. among types and stoam presses ?Philatlrlphia Cirrus. !t. Thin is rich. If our acute coteniporary will take a trip to New York, and stop into our office, we will suow iiiin the copy of the Dublin Pilot, Extra, dji'ef the afternoon of the 5th of February, from which we copied the speech.

It was the only copy brought to this country These are the simple facts?but if the gallant Colonel of the Chronicle believes as firmly as he doe- his Bible, that it was manufactured in New York," it must have been manufactured in our office?it must have been spoken by ourself, and report I by our corps of reporters, for no other paper ha ! the speech. If this is Ins solemn belief?be it so?we shall take the credit, therefore, of being greater m in than even Dan O'ConnelJ. Stam Pruts?Maryland.?The Legislature of Maryland h iu at last dissolved without making any ade'i ute provision for the payment of the interest on the State debt, thereby leaving the honor and re*1 nation of the State in as tarnished a condition as if has exhibited during the last few years. It is tro ?!. y passed a law levying tixes on the different counties, but from the past experience in the collec'ion of taxes, it is highly probable that w> anal! -?* practical repudiation when the tax gatherem go round. At all events the moral effect is the nil i- Maryland, one of the oldest States hi the con! -f-taey, in debt to the amount of nearly fifteen millions,delays, blruflles, lurks and avoids ?n> approach to an honest payment of liei interest, th -r'- iy exhibiting tlr- morals of the Very men whom they put into their penitentiaries. Nor t- there any probability that Pennsylvania will do any better, or any of tlie other States, that are now in a state of practical repudiation. The probability is that there is in tlios? Stales a feeble hop* entertained, that, by the Presidential election they will be enabled to get j Congress elected that will b* disposed to take hold of tlieirdebt.i and assume them altogether. Yet bow feeble is mic-Ii un ex,** ' itiorr' Th* e induct of the legislators oft hose Slates will now go forth to the civilized and christian world, and the name of the United Slates will be covred with more obloquy than ever, whilst Sydney Smiths will start up in every county and svery country. w- vanv Boston.?We tire daily indebted to Adams V Co., for Boston, Portland and Hangnr in advance of the mail. They are invuWral?l* me-aonger*. M. M. Noah amdthe Plainfield Bake.?It may be news to some of our readers to be informed that Mordecai M. Noah, after wandering round the world of politics and morals for n quarter ofa century,after : adopting and shutting off creeds as he would his old clothes, lias at last sunk down into a petty penny-aliner?a small paragraph pufter to Moses Y. Beach and the Pluinfield BankYet so it is. Noah works very hard to induce the good people of this city and country at large to take the ahin-plusters of that concern, issued by the same agency which lonueny tuiciiijucu iu i?uc nu- uruKnuacKBunvuie. Ami an one wf the inducement* they make a great parade of the churchen, schools and stores and various other things in Plainfield, as they call it. This is a very ridiculous thing. How comes it, if this is such a monstrous place, that it doeH not exist at all in the United States census? Why does not its hank do its business at home, instead of sending its money to an agency in New York, to force it off upon the public and shave the community ? Hut this is not the question at issue. Ought the community to have any confidence in the issues of a bank by an agent who attempted to force upon them the Jacksonville currency of Florida ? Is there not priitia facie evidence that something is wrong when the Legislature of New Jersey tultes up the subject and directs the Governor to appoint three Commissioners to examine it ? All the charges which Noah can bring against us ?all the old falsehoods about black mail which that miserable old driveller can rake up, amount to nothing. We are but doing our duty to the public. We were discharging that duty when we warned the public against the issues of the Jacksonville; and we but do our duty to the public when we warn them against the issues and the management of the Plainfield Bank. And all the personalities and vulgarities that Noah may put together, at a penny-aline,will neverpreventusfrom doing ibfet duty to the public. In the mean time we annex the following letter from a member of the Legislature at Trenton, to a gentleman in this city, by which it will be seen that the resolutions directing an examination have now passed both houses of the Legislature of New Jersey, and that the duty devolves on the Governor to appoint three persons to examine the concern. Trenton, March 1*2, ltM4. The concurrent resolution which passed in council some, days ago, was sent down to us this mornfng, and was unanimously concurred in by the House of Assembly. The resolution reads thus:? Whereas, at the last session of the Legislature of this State all the charters incoporating banks which hail not fone into operation, were repealed, except the Plaintiehl ank and the Patterson Bank. And whereas the said Plainfield Bank has, under its charter, gone into operation ; and whereas the otlicera of the said Plainfield Bank are desirous that there should be an investigation of the manner oi disposing of its stock, as also the manner of conducting its affairs, as also its soundness? Therefore, llesolved, the House of Assembly concurring, that the Governor of this State be authorised and directed to appoint three good and judicious men, commissioners, to examine into the present condition of the Plainfield Bank, also the manner of disposing of its stock, and the manner of its organization. And for this purpose the ni,l i>nmmi?iinnpnhii ?n inn we red to send for Dersons and papers, and to examine the officers of said bank on oath or affirmation, and also other persons; nnd the said commis' sionera report to fhc Governor, with all convenient speed, and if the said commissioners shall And, on due examination, that the said bank is insolvent, or a lraudwlent institution, or not legally put in operation, the said Governor be authorised and instructed to cause an injunction to issue against the same. Thus I have given, in full, the resolution which has passed both Houses of the Legislature. The day has been lixed on which to adjourn, which is Thursday next. It would appear by these resolutions that the Bank desired investigation?but it is not so in fact. Alter the motion was originally made in the Council to repeal the charter, because a bank was not needed in Plainfield, the managers of the concern made a virtue ot necessity, came forwurd and pretended to court an investigation. Well, they have now got one?and if the Governor of New Jersey should appoint three Commissioners of high character, and beyond the reach of improper influences, we have little doubt but they will advise the issue of an injunction at once. No confidence can ever be reposed in an institution which is in the hands of the same agency that galvanized and killed off the Jacksonville Bank within the compass of a few weeks. The bad reputation of such a connection will only injure the other good banks of New Jersey?and the good currency of the other banks is sulL-ring from the association with the Jacksonville financier. In the meantime, we would advise the public to get rid of this Plainfield currency as long as the asrencv redeems it at the Sun office. New York. Nearly $50,000 have already been returned, and we trust that all such money in circulation, either here or in the eastern States, may he returned at once. It is the safest policy. A bird in hand is worth two in tke bush. New York can furnish a good enough currency for the people of New York, and New England for New England. Until New Jersey purges herself of ull doubtful connections? stand off?take care?beware. A stitch in time saves nine. Ship News.?We beat the other New York papers almost daily in reporting arrivals at this port. We refer to this fact occasionally for the purpose of showing to the merchants of this and other cities where they can find the most enterprise for obtaining news.

One of our famous news schooners, the well known clipper Teaser, boarded her at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, twenty miles E. S. E. of the Highlands, in a thick fog. in consequence of this fog, our newscaptain was compelled to land a special messenger at Oravesend Bay, who came up overland, and arrived at this office at 4 o'clock this morning, covered with perspiration and glory. We immediately published nearly u column of the news in one of our early editions, and sent it forth to the world in order to give the other New York papers a chance to get it into their editions for the benefit of every body. If, therefore, they don't publish any of this intelligence it is no fault of ours. We did all we could for them. This news is of an highly interesting character. The State Trials in Ireland continued. The Chief Justice charged the Jury on the 9th ultimo, and directly against (J* Council and the traverser?. Apj>earances look squally for O'Connell. No change in the price of cotton. That splendid packet, the Queen of the West, arrivec at Liverpool ou the 9th ultimo, trhe crossed the ocean in fifteen and a half days.

The balance-sheet of the public iucome and expenditure for the year 1813, has been published by order of the House of Commons, it exhibits for the past year an income of ?62,582,817, and an expenditure of ?51,139,515. The radicals have lately been busy circulating a report that her Majesty is considerably in debt. Mr. Blewitt. M. P. for Monmouthshire, had the delicacy to ask the question in the House of ('ominons on Monday, when Sir Robert Peel denied that there was any truth in the rumor. UjLettcrs received from Varna, mention the total destruction of that city, by which a loss of four millions ot piastres has been caused. The stock of tobacco at present (Feb. 9) in Liverpool, amounts, we understand, to the unprecedented quantity of 15,808 hhds., 13ti8 bales, and 1313 small casks and cases. The Glasgow Chronicle says it is probable that the cotton spinners of that city and neighborhood, will turn out for an advance of wages. The fine packet ship Yorkshire, Cupt. Baily, arrived at Liverpool on the 7th ult. British Pari.iamk.nt.?In the House of Commons on the 5th ult., to uuestions put by Lord Monteagle, the puke of Wellington stated that the government did not intend to propose any committee of inquiry relating to the Bank of Kngland, because was sufficient information to legislate upon already before the House ; and that they did intend to adopt measures, during the present session, for the renewal of the charter of the Bank of Ireland upon principles similar to those of the Bank of ling land. Ilia grace further remarked that the renewal of the Bank 01 Ireland charter depended on circumstances entirely different from those on which the renewal of the Bank of England charter rests. ^Conspiracy of ran Manchester Cotton Spinners against the Liverpool CorroN Brokers.? The recent advance in the price of cotton at Liverpool, has excited considerable apprehension among the cotton spinners of Manchester and the neighborhood, notwithstanding the advance that has taken place in the price ol manufactured cloths. A meeting on the subject was held at Manchester, on Saturday, when not less than five hundred individuals were present. Mr. Robert Gardner, who hud called them together, took the chair. lie suggested the working of only five days per week, ahd not to light up the mills from tne 19th or 26th of this month, and that those Manchester men who had large stocks of cotton, should sell, at the present prices, to those who were without,in order to prevent the latter $oing in:o the Liverpool market,and giving higher prices. Mr. Edmund Ashworth said, that the present speculation was owing to some of the Loudon bankers and money lenders, whose circulars they had seen offering to advance money for investment in cotton, il they could only find responsible parties willing to make purchases; ahd the payments were made through orders upon Liverpool hankers. There was a class of men called brokers, in Liverpool, who stood between the importers and the manufacturers,who had udirect interest in encouraging this spirit of speculation. There had been many schemes suggested for doing away this evil, but it was uuite clear that nothing could be done unless a sufficient number of the manufacturers were to unite together for the purpose. Cotton belonging to Manchester men was imported into Liverpool and there sold; but it had been suggested that it should be brought to Manchester and there sold to the consumers, and that the trade should be kept from Liverpool during the next three or four months, and that the Manc hester cotton should not go into the hands of the Li verpool brokers (cheers), and the people of this neighborhood would have the satisfaction of knowing that their money went into the pockets of their own friends rather than into the hands of the brokers, bankers and money lenders of London and Liverpool. Mr. A. Buckley and Mr S. L. Behrens ulso spoke. Mr. G. R. Cnappell denounced the present mode of payiri" the Liverpool cotton brokers, which made it the interest of the brokers to rob the manufacturers.? There were some brokers who were texceptions to the generality of their class, and were honorable men; but such was the tendency of the present mode of paying them for purchasing cotton. Some resolutions were posc-d, and a committee was np pointed 10 mature a oiaii ui hciivii, hiiu report 10 a meeting to be held on Friday.? Liverpool Miil. Ftb. 10. Ireland. Our accounts from Dublin are to the evening of the 9th ult. On the Oth, 7th and 8th the Court of the Queens Bench on the .State Trials was occupied in closing the defence, and in the opening of the Solicitor General. Nothing of any con*equence occurred. On Friday the 9th, the twentythird day of the trials, The Solicitor General continued his address this morning at ten o'clock, and concluded about two. The Chief Justice then proceeded to charge the jury. As far as his lordship has gone up to post nour, his address is most unfavorable to the traversers. lie has characterised the opinions broached as to the Queen's prerogative as seditious, and has altogether agreed in the definition of the law of conspiracy, as laid down by the Crown. It was prob able the charge would not conclude that night. Tun Dm.urn ( .'ormiration.?The following is the answer to the address of the Dublin Corporation, presented on Friday by the Cord Mayor and some of the Aldermen and Town Council.

By the Indiau mail of the 1st of January, letters and papers have been received to that date from Bombay. British India is tranquil, and likelv to continue so. The great clamor against Lord Ellenhorough hod subsided, and ins lordship was growing very popular. The news from the kingdom of the Sikins represents that country as far from being tranquillized. It appears that Golub Singh, lite elder brother of Dhyan Singh, old Runjeet's favorite minister, who was assassinated in September last, had come from his mountain fastnesses at Lahore, under pretence of supporting his nephew, Heera Singh, who now governs there, under the name ol the young Sovereign Duleep, and that his arrival had not produced the expected results. The young minister is described as giving large sums of money to the common soldiers, in order to retain them in some order, while his uncles are busy in plundering the treasures of the Sikh government, and carrying away the jewels and articles of value to the mountains. The state of the country is described as bordering upon anarchy. The Aflghan government is as feeble as even in the hands of Dost Mahomed, and intrigues are alloat of various kinds. In the midst of these intrigues Dost Mahomed appears to be. unable to make the contemplated attack on I'eshawur, al though it is no louger defended by the European Genera la of the Lions of Lahore. All the French officers have left the service of the Sikhs, so that it is highly probrble the boasted prowess ot those troopse will soon become little more than the courage of rabble, if Akhbor Khan, who is governing Jellelabad with the greatest cruelty, should dare to attack the Sikh provinces to the west of the Indus. It is doubted by the Aftghnns themselves that Dost Mahomed, or his son will ntake an attempt on i'eshawur. The arrangements of Lord Ellenborough for the subjugation of state of Gwalioa have been higliiy successful. The sickness in Scinde continued to be the
source of great comment. The government appeared resolved in retaining the country, which is now tranquil. At Sukkur there had heeu much sickness, but it appeared to be diminishing. The Army of Excise was ready near Agra, under the orders of the Commander-in-Chief, Sir Hugh Gough. The first brigade, led by General Valiant, was ordered to move towards Illioolpoor, half way to Gwalior; it marched on the 12th, and the rest of the armo moved in the same direction on the following day. The intelligence reached Gwalior, and ptoduced alarm. The young Rajah, who was chosen to he heir to the last Sovereign by the Bhaee, took refuge in the camp of the Governor-General, who is now completely master ofthe whole kingdom. It is hoped by many of the most enlighteney men in India ihat his lordship will now adopt the plan of removing from the wretched peasantry tee horrible yoke uhder which they have long groaned. The success of Lord Ellenborough at Gwalioj will, it is expected, lead him soon to settle the intricate question ofthe Punjaub. At Bombay the cold season is advancing rapidly. An immense amount of shipping has of late arrived from England; seventy vessels, varying from 800 to 1800 tons, having come into port in the course of the month. Freights have, in consequence, declined rapidly. Trade generally, in fact, is dull, and little business doing. China. mi... f,cl;0u tl.? 1st of December. Little had oacurred worthy of noticeisubsequent to the fires which cou?umed the factories on the 25th of October. The markets at Canton had become rather more favorable. The British consuls had arrived at Ainoy and yhanghae,where trade was dull, as the arrangements were then completed. The Chinese authorities at Ningpo, declined granting permission for the importation of goods there until the consul hud arrived, and the duties were settled. They are said to have been alarmed by an imperial chop, which they had received from Pekin, ordering that no business should be carried on unless the consul was there. AtChusan the British system of government without rqueezing the inhabitants had conciliated their attachment, and they appeared to regret the approaching departure ol the British troops. Some Americans, as if courting a cause of quarrel with the Chinese had ventured upon excursions into the interior; this practice had procured from the British Plenipotentiary a declaration to the Chinese Commissioner that ne should by no meant countenance each proceeding and that orders should be given to the consuls to have all such foreigners arrested and sent to Hong-Kong. The death of Major Eldad Pottinger, whico occurred at IIoug-Kong, was greatly deplored. Colonel Knowles, of the Artillery, and assistant surgeons Grahams and Dill, have also faudn victims to thepreralent malady. Rumor spoke of some differences between Sir II. Pottinger ane the British Admiral and General* Sir Ilenrv Pottinger is said to be anxious to get home, and Colonel Outram has been talked of as his iutended successor. Theatricals. It appears that more than five comedies, each in live acts, and founded upon English manners, have been sent in to Mr. Webster for the ?500 promised in his advertisement.

Democratic Ward Elections.?The elections of the democratic party of the several wards to select delegates to nominate Charter Officers was ueiu ycKicruay. C/Oiisiueranie excitement caibicu, but we believe bloody noses and black eyes were not introduced to settle the matter. In the first ward, Assistant Alderman Charlock succeeded with his committee to nominate him lor Alderman, and Mayoralty delegates were elected friendly to the nomination of Alderman Purdy. In the second and third but little interest was excited, and the Mayoralty delegates elected are divided between .Tonuthan I. Coddington, Alderman Purdy and Eli Moore. In the fourth ward, the contest was for Assistant Alderman, and the ticket friendly to Joseph A. Divver, liquor merchant, was elected. In the fifth ward, Alderman Tilliou'sticket succeeded. The Mayoralty delegates in these wards are divided. In the sixth,|lhe Emmans and Ilenry ticket succeeded, and a divided Mayoralty ticket. In the seventh ward, the Nash ticket was defeated; and in the eighth, Assistant Alderman Brown was floored in his prospect of nomination for Aldermen, and Peter Crawford's party was successful with Moore mayoralty delegates. In the ninth ward, Isaac B. Smith's ticket for Alderman was elected, and divided delegates for Mayor. In the tenth, Daniel Ward's ticket for Alderman was successful, and Purdy delegates for Mayor. In the eleventh, Charles J. Dodge's ticket for Alderman carried the day, and Purdy delegates for Mayor. These three last named gentleman are at present members of the Board of Assistant Aldermen. The twelfth, we did not hear from. In the thirteenth, it is said that Assistant Alderman I3oggs succeeded in securing a ticket favorable to his nomination for Alderman, with Coddington and Purdy delegates for Mayor. In the fourteenth, the Davis and Innis "split" run a union ticket, which was elected with doubtful delegates for Mayor. The candidates are to be chosen for alternately from both splits un?j the ticket is completed. In the fifteenth, Coddington delegates were elected for Mayor, but no interest was excited otherwise, as the whigs have a large majority in thai ward for Alderman, &:c. From the sixteenth, we learned nothing definite, but presume that Moore'f Mayorality delegates were elected. In the seven teenth, the contest was for the nomination of Petti grew for Alderman, as Alderman Lee has decline; ?result doubtful all round. It will thus be seer thut Aldermen Purdy, Hatfield, Lee, Vnnderwort Briggs, Rawson, Waterman, and perhaps Nash have withdrawn from the canvass and given thei Assistsnts a fair chance to secure their places.? The Mayoralty delegates will be devided betweci Coddington, Purdy and Moore, but the first namei gentleman appears to have the largest number. Thf. Inki.i'enoe oftiik Punuc Press on Rooi;ki ami Rooukry.?For the past several years the in fluence exercised by the public press of this city has tended far more to prevent crime, and rectify the immorality of the age, than any other power not even excepting that of the laws of the land We were among the first that took an open anc public stand in the exposition of crime, and with t daring hand probed the excresences of so callet " good society," that had so long existed upon lh< corruption of the community. We were amoni the first to lay bare to the gaze of an astoundini world, the fraud, the deception, the treachery, o these who, stunding high in public places, under th mantle of banks and trust companies, had bt i trayed every trust, and robbed the widow, the fa therless, and the orphan, of their inheritance. W have been among the first to warn the public c the frauds of scheming speculators, nnd grasping avaricious so-called bankers, who have attemptec 1 time and again, to Hood this community wit their worthless trash, and who would have succeec > ed in many instances, were it not for our timel warnings. This course has caused much of the bitter oppr , sition that was formerly arrayed against us, but re cently we have discovered a new attempt to smt > tlier public investigation, and prevent that full e: posure of crime that lias caused more fear on th - part of offenders than the law itself. We regre to say that this feeling has extended itself t those who have been selected by the people to fei ret out crime, and lully expose the perpetrators.We allude to the course pursued by the Mayor o this city in investigations of crime held before him j at bis office. Me has assumed to himself the righ t to close his doors, and pursue such invc ligation a , he pleased, boldly refusing those courtesies, or w i- might say those rights, that belong to the publi press of this city; and ii^ lias so long continued thi H course that the rogues of fashionable life, when at '' rested, are in the constant practice of asking, de j m inding, begging, and at last beseeehing to be at , raigned before the Mayor, instead of the folic i Magistrates, in order that tneir acts of villainy ma . not be exposed to the world through the publi ; press. We could cite instance after instance wher > public exposure has thus been prevented, and th parlies escaped in the end by aforleit ofhail, orfror f some neglect on the part of the public nuthori I ties.

We could point him to th case of Mary Rogers?the murder of Corlis?th bogus money c^se?and last, but not least, the sten " ing of Pomerov's trunk. In each of these invcsti ! gations, the Mayor withheld information of yaimportance to the community, which, if puhlicl . exposed at the time, would, no doubt, have led t 1 the almost immediate arrest and conviction of th guilty parties, lie had the sole management an < control ot these particular eases, nnd presumed, w 1 have no doubt, with perfect honesty of purposi " that such a course was nest calculated to secure th ends of justice, llut he lias heen mistaken, as h p will certainly admit, and wc, therefore, trust thu " those who follow him in the Mayoralty of tliis cit [ will devote their time to the duties for which the are specially elected, and allow the police tungi: r (rates to investii/ate crime and secHre oflenders.We shall;refer to this subject again.

He commenced in May, 1841, and let! in December, 1343 Q. Do you recollect ot ever making a contract, or of one being written by either yourself or Woodhull, with a view of being signed in the summer ot 184-27 A. I say positively there never was. Q. Will you be so good as to tell us why you recollect this so well, when you cannot recollect whether you sworo or not before the magistrate 7 A. 1 suppose I'm like all other human beings, not so likely to bring my mind so strong upon some things as others. Q. Do you recollect of any person calling upon you with this note before you entered the prosecution for forgery 7 A. Never sir ; 1 recollect distinctly that no person ever called ; the first time I ever saw the nota it was at the police ofhee. Q. You say you never saw it beiore7 A. No, never. Q. Have you any recollection of ever hearing of this note before you made the complaint! A No, sir; but a few days previous to the note's having been discovered, from what I heard relative to Woodhull having considerable money, I went into Wall street and inquired of the Chemical Hank ; before I started I found that Mr. Hicks knew something about where Woodhull got the money : I called upon him, and he took me one side, and said ne would call up and see mc'; this was the way I found out about the note ; this was some six weeks after he had left Bank ?

Direct resumed by Blunt?I hod a printed form of noteg that I used; I never signed nny note of any other kind in 1 my office; I might hare signed other notes when I was out of my office; I remember going to the office of Hicks * with you; Mr. Hicks did not exhibit any note to me; I first saw this note at the police office, at the time of the examination, in the previous complaint against Woodhnll; Charles Woolley was the complainant; when I went to see Mr. Hicks, I asked him 'if he knew that YVoodhull had any large amount of money; I understand he has been I showing from five to seven hundred dollars at George Scarps porter house; Hicks looked at me, and said he did ! not know where he had got it, but he said he would come j up in the afternoon and see me.

Yes, sir, for false imprisonment on that $50 cate that ? he obtained for Woolley. Blunt?We rest here, sir; bnt before concluding will ' read the examination of Woodhull before the police, and call one witness more. The examination was read, in which Woodhull alleges that Miller drew the note in his presence, and gave it to him not to disclose some transactions in which Miller had 1 been concerned. Wm. S. Archer called and sworn for prosecution?1 was in the employ of Miller nearly two years; 1 wrote up his books from the time that Miller took possession of s Tattersall's until after Woodbuli left. Q.

Blunt?Whose hand-writing is this letter? A. It is in ' the hand-writing ofBichmond Woodhull. | This letter was not dated, but was received by Wood i bull on the l'4th of December, IH43. It contained an ad mission that Woodhull owed Miller for the keep of a 1 poney, which Miller refused to deliver upuntil ths meney i was paid, but had no other relation to the issue on trial.1 The prosecution her* rested with an understanding, that e they should show by Miller, the date ut which this note g was received A L. Jordav, Esq. then briefly opened for derence, and ? called | Edward Woodhi'li., who was sworn.?1 am a brother of Richmond Woodhull. ** Have you ever heard Miller make use of any threats ! against your brother ? , Bi.t ar objected, but the Court overruled the objection. A. I have ; it was on the night that my brother was are rested for obtaining $60 from VVoollry ; I told him that my ,f brother was locked up ; he said he knew that well; that he and Charley Woolley put him there, and by God he > should lay there until he rotted ; that he had got to bend | to him, or knuckle to him ; I told hirn that he would find in the morning he could notplo it; he said that his oath " and Charley Wool'ey's oath were two good oaths, and he |. would send him to state prison if it cost him $1,600 ; I rcplied he could not ; he said " by God I'll find a way to do J it;" this was on the'l.Vh of December, 1849. Q. Have yon ever seen this note before ? A. I have ; it was a lew days after it had been drawn in July ; I was present in Decembor, 1H49, when a dispute arose between Miller and my brother ; I heard my brother then say, that when Miller paid him what he owed him, he would come and write up his liooks, anil not before ; Miller asked him <C again after wc went down stairs, if he would write up his e books ; my brother said if he would pay him what he owed him, he would, and if not, he would expose him to *t the world; Miller replied, that he " would soon have 0 him where the dogs wouldn't bite him."
