I should greatly prefer to see every freecitizen o the United States deliberately considering and detennin ing how he can best promote the honor and prosperity o his country, by the exercise of his inestimable privilege and coming to the polls unaffected by all sinister exertion and there independently dt'iaisiting liis suffrage. 1 sliouli infinitely prefer to see calumny, falsehood and detractiur totally abandoned, and truth, sincerity, honor and goot faith alone practised in all our discussions, and 1 think may venture to assure our opponents that, whenever the are prepared to conduct our public discussicns and |iopa lar elect! ns in the inanm r and upon the principles w hie I have indicated, the whig party will be as prompt in to lowiug their good example, us tliey were slow and reluc taut to imitate their had one.

The campaign of 1840 was a scene an J of constant excitement, from beginning to end? Si y This was, in a great measure, produced by the sad commercial and pecuniary reverses which had visi- ^ ted tlie country previous to that struggle. Dtsap- co . pointment?avarice?all the ambitious feelings ol w: man's nature, served to give exasperation to the j | ,i feelings of that day, and communicate a spirit of ini * almost sublime energy to the contest, and which vii ' afforded the only reliel to its drunken revelries and y1 e mingled coon and hickory absurdities. hi " The electioneering contest of the present day re- in: i sembles that of 1840only in one particular, and that 'hi k is, the display which it affords of the utter lieen1 tiousness of the party politicians, and the gross de- tl0 1 gradation and awful demoralization ol the party Fn . prets, comprehending both Whigs and Democrats, ^ - with a very few exceptions on both sides. But the ' excitement of 1840 pervaded the entire mass of the ' t people, whilst the excitement of 1844, with all fes 1 its demoralization, is confined to the party to t press and the mere party hacks. The great an 1 i i.. ?r i _ I :.i. i i p uuuy ui uin peupir regum wiin marnnj wn I apathy, contempt, and disgust, the mnnner in which of j the contest is conducted, and when the day of elec- tor l tion arrives, they will go up quietly to the polls, and tin | deposite their ballots, without mingling at all in the dw i licentiousness and folly of the fray. The country, vei during the last eighteen months or two years, has am been gradually regaining its commercial ptosperi old ' tv. Trade is improving. Industry is flourishing par \ All the elements of prosperity are in rapid motion, bri and all intel igent business men, in every depart- rac J ment of human industry and enterprise, begin to be ste] convinced that the farther politics are rento- ma ved from business operations, the better it is for the mu , country. any It is this apathy amongst the masses of the peo- sho pie?it is this growing contempt and avoidance of aud political excitement and buffoonery,which renders theprediction of the probable result of thiscontest,so ^ absolutely impracticable. Every one acknowledges ex'' that the issue is more uncertain than ever it was in cris iinv nrevimiH nrpsiHpnfiul / nmnnirrn Anrl thio iw SOJT one great reason of the exceeding licentiousness and violence of the party press The unprincipled C1f" organs of both factions endeavortodispelthedoubt min in the public mind by additional violence. And Hgal thus they load with all the opprobious epithets which 8ine filthy, unmannerly and vulgar nature can supply, ver' the candidates of both parties. " Murderer," " ruf- was fian," "gambler," and such terms, are applied to ,nip Vlr. Clay, aigi Mr. Polk is covered with equally 'or vile epithets. Mr. Frelinghuysen is reviled and de" l'ea rided because he is pious and a cold water man; and s in the same breath, his contemptible revilers abuse ihe Mr. Clay because he is not pious and is not a cold eve water man! The Whigs shout out that Mr. Polk it- nil in favor of a dissolution of the Union ; whilst they fift themselves, not long since, declared, with fierce imprecations, that if the Texas treaty were passed, |()\ they would dissolve the Union I oci Now all this vile, malignant, disgraceful conduct, 1 is regarded in its proper light by the masses of the (0 intelligent people. There is every reason to hope |,a, that the low, vulgar, mercenary and unprincipled fits political hacks will this time receive their proper thi deserts, and that the people will stand alcof from ne . the arena of their degraded clutches, and quietly an< await the day of election, then to discharge, in a as becoming manner, the high and responsible duties mi of American citizenship. The result may he as ? astounding as that of the election which terminated pas in the return of Mayor Harper. We cannot forser |an which it may he. Clay is, we think, losing ground lati somewhat. But whether Polk may be elected or ho; defeated by a large majority, it is impossible to tell tee We shall, however, watch with due care the pro- / gress of events, und keep our readers fully and ac- P curately informed. ,?xl ' teei Kmioration to Wisconsin?A vast political C emigration is preparing to go to Wisconsin ins a fi very short time. It seems that Senator Tallmadge, wil who has been appointed as Governor of Wisconsin, He is only a link in a series of appointments, which W( have a very curious aspect. According to all ap- Ca I pearances, and from the information we have re- Fal cetved, the whole conservative party of New York, shf immediately after Captain Tyler's nomination to thii ihe Presidency, made arrangements for emigrating lax to Wisconsin, to manage that Territory with the a n same skill and success as they have managed the pui Tyler party in this city. Ne This band of emigrants consists of Senator Tall- i inadge at the head, Postmaster Graham, George rep I) Strong, and a number of the other friends of vig Captain Tyler, who expect to leave New York in cai six or twelve months. Mr. Cunningham, formerly grr i (1 atinguihhed financier of Poughkeepsie, who became unfortunate, and was made supervisor and ' leaser of lead mines or copper mines in Wisconsin, Prf: is already ihe pioneer of this movement. We ex- 1,11 peet to see Postmnster Graham and Mr. Strong s,e prominent office-holders out there before long. 001 We calculate that many of the leaders of this ' emigration will corne back to Washington as memtiers of Congress in the course of five or six years *ni It is a highly interesting movement in the histoty rer of emigration this?it is?and we may give all the m" details hereafter. ml Mexican Stkamkus.?The Montezuma and ''' I Dfl Jiiadaloiipe are to be repaired at Brown Be 1Pp of -tup yard, and will thence go to the celebrated Novelty Iron Wotks, conducted by Stillman, Allen and Co., to have their machinery and boiler? der thoroughly repaired. Yoi II"Iikst Hay of thk Season.?Yesterday th? I oereury in the shade run up to 90 deg. in thiscity j Th Philadelphia, on Thursday, it was up to 98 deg ma ^ -mi in Boston Ut> ^ Set Canada.?An announcement is made in the offital Gazette that the Provincial Parliament stands gain prorcuged till the 3d day of August, but not jr despatch of business. Since we last took occasion to reler to public donga in Canada, there hue not occurred anything I particular interest. The newapupera on each i.le are, however, very busy in wordy disputution;boat the debate in the Ifritieli Parliament, which 'us brought up by Mr II > buck. They are exerinng all their ingenuity - l< trued commentators, uch to give a hue of meaning to the official views f ministers as expressed in that debate, und are uite as much in the dark about the exact value ot le term "responsible government," or at least as ir from agreeing upon it us ever, and they never 'id, notwithstanding the expert allusion to it by .old Stanley, so long as they continue to mystify i'-matter with words, words, words. Tiie most J n, ortant and sensible part of that debate uppsars ) be overlooked by our Canadian neighbors, anil lat is the very sensible admission of Sir 11. Peel, ( lut the value ol retaining and being at lavish ex- , -use for this colony would remain very pr<<bl<-mat:ul,so long as by a persistauce in their present and ( ist career, they appear to be insensible of the < 1\aril ages of this connection themselves.? 1 the Canadians could see further than j leir nose, tliey would cease warring about words id look at the fact, the new (act, that .Sir R. I'eel ( beginning to weigh weli and coolly the question , )\v far it is wise nnd statesmanlike to perpetuate j ie pieseut existing relation between the colony i ill the mother country, and which he regards as I apparent from the new light that has flashed on . min.l i,|.-lli, I,I, !,. r .I...I 11Id and an over indulgent parent. There will be t ere of this anon. Common sense will occasion- ? ly neutralize the sophistication of the politician ; ' id verilv, a little leaveu ol truth, it brought into J tive operation, sooner or later leaveneth the . lole lump ol fallacious theory. , Sir ft. Peel will be uble to derive some valuable , :t lor contemplation from the late disclosures ol J tt vile jade, " The Canada Land Company."? l ie would have thought that the bursting ol thin bhle, the Australian concern, a couple of years f o, should have been sufficient to open the eyes ol ' sry one to the real character of companies rl id-jobbers, alias land-sharks; and we trust thai j el will not be deterred from looking to the job which the Hon (1) Mr. Eilice is the principal ti tor, one whit the more because that honorable q ntleman is a very intimate relation ol his own. ? The Canada papers speak of the reception of Sir 1 Metcalfe, on his arrival at the new seat of go- r rnment, Montreal, as very watm, and highly * tiering to that personage. If this be set down as jof positive of liis popularity with, or an endorse- J rnt of his administration, by the mass, it will he egregious error. A wrlf disposed man, like \ r C. Metcalfe, will always command powerful c ends; and thousands who denounce his politics? , fecially amongst the polite French population? ' uuld, as a matter of course, evince a respectful and urteous bearing towards him. We recollect, too J ell, how that part ol the Montrealers, who call jj ernst Ives loyal par excellence, and British everv n clr of them, treated Sir C. Bagot. His lirst entrie H to that city was most enthusiastic. Every de- v :t?"all alliances and means to boot"?were re- h rteil to, to give effect and delat to his arrival. * ?t that same faction, in one short year, received in. at his return from Kingston, with the IBM J' irked reserve and studied coldness. A though ausands were assembled on the wharf to see his d lding. not Ode solitary cheer arose to greet tin c od man, solely because he had earned the addi- r nal'honor of being a good aed liberal Governor s icts are stuhborn things. We hope Sir Charles etcalle will not be too much elated by the E irrnest attentions of the Montrealers. 11 The Ethiopians.?The minstrelsy of these pro- p isors is beyond question admired by all who go <i hear them?and deservedly so. Their perforin f' ces take place at the Apollo rooms, 410 Broad iy, where they are nightly listened to by crowd* the gay and fashionable. Their mode of perm a nee is novel and unique; with a portion of it discernment and good taste which enabled Rice, : famous Jim Crow, with nothing in the plot and (; y little in the scenery of his pieces, to delight ? J entrance his audience, and established hi.> im to be a first rate artist; so our present com 1 iy of Ethiopians take good care, while they ng out fully the distinctive marks of negro cha- t\ ter, the expression?their attitudes?not to over- p p the modesty of nature Apait from the dra tic part of the performance, we may add that the J*1 sical is alone worth twice as much to hear at ' time, and we never heard more hearty anc 0 wering applause given on any occasion, by an la lience fully capable of criticism. T Ixpected Insurrection at Nauvoo.?We daily ect highly interesting news from Nauvoo. A ar is is evidently approaching, and the news ol af) le bloody encounter between the followers of HO nroohet and the inhnhilanla of the neiehhorini! I '8 and villages would not surprise us. Exter- |ei ation seems to be determined on by the latter list the former. But that will be a difficult bu- |ej ss to effect. The present position of Joe Smith |01 ' forcibly reminds us of that in which Mahomet fe( placed when he laid the foundations of that an hty nation and system of religion which has t(, so long a period resisted all the efforts of Euron civilization and evangelism. \ team Ships and Travet.i.ino.?It is stated tha' 9C Britannia, the next steamer due at Boston had ry birth engaged on the 4th instant, and that the " sernia, which is to sail on the 4th ?f July, had c' y taken. We suppose, in addition to these, that Great Western will come out full, to be fol- " ved by the Great Britain with every state-room ^ cupied. ^ While all these passengers are tending this way see Niagara, visit Saratoga, etc., etc., our ^ cket ships going hence carry their share of the ? hionable travellers and tourists. We understand C it the Oxford, Capt. Rathbone, which leaves here a xt Monday, for Liverpool, is rapidly filling up p d the probability is that the Victoria and Oneida, b well as the Oxford, will sail with a full coinple- b nt. It Ipropo* of packets : we are informed that a I) isenger from Boston, who has crossed the At- v tic several times with Captain Rathbone, hat h fly presented a beautiful and costly silver snuffc to that experienced navigator, in token of eem and respect.

For defence, David Graham, R. N. Morrison and Clinton Dk Witt, Esqs. Quite an excitement was created in this neighborhood and at Port Richmond this morning (Friday,) by the appearance ofa colored man,very genteely dressed, who said that lie had come to the i-land to reveal some greut secret relutive to the murder of the deceased. He had with him a book containing an entry of Ins dreams, in which he states that the deceased had appeared to him und revealed the whole secret of the murder and who Iittd committed it. He was found upon examination to be a crazy negro "dreamer" named James F. Bayard, tailor, of 106 Sands street, Brooklyn. He was ordered to quit the island or run the risk of being luck ed up. Fifth Day. At the opening of the Court, Mr. Graham lor defar.ee, ituted Unit ho understood that the Court had adjourned on rhursday afternoon in order to allow the prosecution ime to introduce three witnesses, Dr. Monday, Alderman Yandervoort. and Mr. Coddington, who were absent, and who had been represented by the proaeoution us having teen subpoenaed ut a proper period to attend the trial He lad been informed this morning by Alderman Vunder ,-oort that he had not been subpoenaed until last evening, ind also that the prosecution intended to introduce addiional testimony. He hoped, therelore, that the proseculoii would lie compelled to confine themselvea to these .hree witnesses, and then rest their testimony. The Court stated they would hear the three witnesses, ind then decide this question. Dr. CsowtLL Monday wus then called by prosecution m l swoin?Knows the accused ; was called to see her ut lie prison ou Monday the 1st of January ; she told me 'he wiu troubled with peculiar tiains : on the Wednesday allowing she was delivered of a still horn child ; some >ro;ierty was taken from her on Tuesday the Jd of Jnnuay by the Sherill': he told her that he was ordered to iearch her cell; be did so and tound a small leather racket wallet containing anout $10 in bills and specie ; I ook a memorandum ol the bills, bu*. it has since been worn out in iny pocket; 1 cannot say that this is the racket hook Crosi examined by Ghaham lor defence?At the time the iherilf went.iutojber cell to Bearch it the accused was unlet labor pains , she was actually in labor at the time : he sheriff said he hud authority to search her cell ; she nade no objections to the cell being searched ; she said ill" had nothing hut a pocket book, and she told him where it was ; this was the day before she was confined. Smiih ConnisuiTOK called and sworn?I reside at Railway, New Jersey ; 1 resided in New York on Christmas ast ; knows accused and have known her for some two ir three years past ; I saw her in New York on Sunday, he 31st day of December; I saw her in Spring street on nut day ; she was pussing towards Hudson street; 1 reognized her at the time; it was between 1-Jand 1 o'clock; had nevei spoken to her before ; she turned up Hudson tri't t, and 1 left the company 1 was with and followed ler and spoke to her ; she recognized me, and asked if ny name was Co hlingteu ; 1 asked her if she had heard if the reports iu circulation about her ; she said she had; asked her if she was aware the officers were in search oi ter; she said she was,but that she was perfectly innocent; I eked her why she did not return to her friends : her an wer was, that they were the first to suspect her or ac use her and she had no friends ; I advised her to retuni ind I would protect her so far as was in my power ; she urned about and went with me us far us Alderman Vanlurvoort's ; he,was not ut home ; she begged of me not to ake her before any public magistrate ; we went along intil we came to a tavern uear a stable where horses vere to let; I asked bar to take some refreshments at the avem, but she declined; the stable was next door; I took ter into one of the parlors up stairs and asked her to set lown while I got the cartage ; she said she would rather valk then ride; Alderman Vandcrvoot came up stairs and ve all three went down to the Tombs together in the callage ; she had on a dark cloak and one, two or three bawls, u dark colored hood and green veil, and a small landkerchief round her heud ; she said she had ,ad u small satchel bosket with her, but I do ot know th it this is the one here ; it wos very cold bat day ; she said she hed been to chutch that torning and had left the basket there by mistake ; the ssket was found in u church in Kranklin street, between Vest Broadway and Hud-en street; there was a pair oi loves and a black lace or crape veil in the basket; I do ot remember what else was in the baskst; 1 had neve) poked to her before ; when I accosted her first I passed y her undlsaid, -'is this Mrs. Bodine7" Yesterday aljrnoon wus iho first time I was subpoenaed ; i.was suboenicd at Hah way. New Jersey; I did not go to New Jer ey to avoid the service of any subpoenas ; I went on mj wn business. Crass-ixamivtd by Graham for Defence?The day 1 met lie accused in New York it was very cold By Prosecution?who asked the privilege to put an thrr question to witness.?The accused informed me bat she had neither eat or slept for ono or two nights ; he said that when she leftthe house in Washington street n Saturday night, she crossed over towards the East rivr, and walked out to Harlem and back ; that, on returnlg in the morning she came down in town and went to hurch in Kranklin street, in the morning ; she said all be had eaten the night before was a piece of pie ; I think be said she had fallen, or had a spasm in the street, as er face w as bruised ; this conversation was held on board 1 the boat coming down. Counsel for defence objected to any further relation ol be conversation of accused with witness,as he had prom led to protect her if sne wouid go to the island. The ourt sustained the objection. By Drfrnct.?I do not know that any one is entitled to lie reward; I have been told I was, and I was not; if it i> laitned by any one, 1 suppose I am entitled to a share ol I; that will depend upon circumstances; if nobod) hould claim (he reward .'11 say 1 would; the small hand erehief she had round her head presented nothing un u mil lor a cold day: it did not prevent me from recogni.ing her; she made no hesitation iu recognizing me at nice when I spoke to her; she answered me with perfect oolness when I told her that sbe was suspected, and the itfic.ers were in search ol iter; she said she would come to In Island without my goiug to a magistrate; this wus aid while 1 was going on the stoop of Aldermau Vunder-oort's house. David Vandervooht sworn.?i was an Alderman of <ew York city last year; I saw the accused on Sunday, he last day of December, with Mr. Coddington; I met hem, and went to a room over the tavern or porter house. ,nd remained there ui.til Mr. Coddington got the carriage; he said nothing of any consequence to me while there; 1 o not know that 1 can identify the basket here shown SC. Q.?What did she say coming down in the boat ? The defence objected, as the promise of Coddington, vho was on hoard the boat, to protect her, was sulticiant o exclude the testimony, and also that the conversation vaa in tne presence ol a magistrate, belore she was cauioned as to her rights. Thecourt noted the exception. Witnkss ?The accuseil said on board the boat that she i?d walked all the way across Stu'en Island tothi Quai intine, on the Friday night p evious; she did not talk riuch; her face was tied up with a handkerchief when I irst saw her in the city; I believe she said she had fell ind hurt herself the night before; the handkerchiet was emoved nt the police office by someone. Cross txaminrd hy Graham for d'fmct.?1 was not subeenaed to attend in this case till last evening at 9 o'clock; teceived two subpoenaes lust evening; I have not been tit ol the city for the past several weeks. The Prosecution objected to the inquiry, when the ourt stated that it was proper, as it was evident that the ause should not have heen delayed, as the witnesses anted last evening were not properly subpoenaed The Prosecution here said they should call another Fitness. Th - Defence contended that by previous understanding >st evening, the prosecution wen- to rest on calling these hree witnesses. On consultation, the prosecution as ented to rest their testimony at this point. They have xumined At witnesses. The Court then took a short recess to allow counsel for efence to consult previous to their epening. At 11 o'clock, Clixtox De Wit r, K.sq , proceeded to pen the cause for defence, in which he stated that, he lad been the last counsel called in the case, but should ndeavor to discharge his duty to his client in a manner Miiviuuiury ly ui? i uuri uiei in ttccuriituicv wiui uium onscientious motives that should always actuate counel. He then alluded to the unfortunate position of the .notified, the responsibility of the jury, ami the duty oi 11 concerned in the important cause : that the jury hould discard all prejudice!, former opinions and hearsay tories, and depend upon the testimony as presented before hem It was very natural, he. said. Hint when a great Time was committed, that a jury should loose sight nt he truo position of the parson charged ; but they should lot only he satisfied that a crime has been committed, but hut the prisoner at the bar hail committed that crime fe said he should allude for a moment to the effect ol irejudiee as created by popular opinion, wliirh nncon ciousiy obtained predominance over the mind, without ho person being aware of its insidieus influence. It herefore became the jurars to search their minds to asertain whether prejudice was not lurking there, and if so, <> root it out and judge from the facts us presented, only, fliesituation of the prisoner, lie said, was truly unprin litioiiH indeed -that in addition to the offence tor which he was on trial, she had been charged by the District Atorney, in his opening, with having, at a previous time ived iu illicit intercourse with a party also charged as an ccessory to the murder, which statement was calculated o create prejudice against her in the minds of the jury I'his position, hy the prosecution, might compel the de "lice to present the circumstances under which this acuaintanre was commenced and continued. The. accused rag married, while young, to her husband, llodirie, who ad afterwards committed the offence of bigamy, and nally died in State prison a few weeks since, while nn er the sentence ol the law. That tha accused had he ome acquainted with Mr. Waite in New York, while sh< 'as engaged there in keeping a small shop, and liat this acquaintance ripened into mutual effec ion, which was followed by an intimacy tha' euld long since have terminated in Lawful marriage,hie ut the existence of her husband prevented it. Her affrc on for Waite was pure and real ; not selfish or animal . in had at a time when nor father divided $1000 amonf is children .loaned that money to him, and took his note' r pavment, which are vet due and which he believer ro now.in the han.is.of.thu prosecution, and would ba cal led for during this tiial lie believe J that thii connerttonj wua now u part of the defence; hut he d ended ita effactjf although it would have hail nothing to do with the eus?1'he c jinn: ii,.noil oi one otfei re was generally coniideiett m sli) i i.laliou fur otiiets, and, therefore, the unfortunate position ul ihe prisoner under the circuuistuuccs that surrounded her. He then alluded to the effect of rumor, newspaper publication and other sources of eacitenteut ? which weie created at the time, until all 'eyes were turned towuidi ihe caae, and wliicii immedlataly centered upon the uiifoituiiate piiaoner as soun as elio was ?itested on mere aus|iiciou of the commtssiou of the offence. 11" regrott.il its < tl'ect, and if it was In his , power he would prevent the publication of every rumor relativo.to any oln nee, until the jury had render, d their verdict. They would show that mere rumor- not met a rumor?hut |>eilect witchcrair, hud fnrn ed tlie. basis of suspicion against her, and that eld Mr. Van r<-lt,the lather ot ilect .t. u, liud, jui vivus to any suspicion falling upon the uccusod, consulted a sooth layer, or iortuno-teUar? and thus was he convinced, nay sutistled. that this unfortunate woman had committed the horrible crime Of murder. He then alluded to the opportunity given accused to escupe if she hu.l been guiity?the organization oi the secret investigating committee, which he said was a disgrace to the couise of justice and to all the officers of Justice in the country?and that during all this investigation the accused lemamed at the very scene of the muidar until tliu hour she was told she was suspected. He then referred to the law and common stnse view of circumstantial testimony as laid dow n in Hedges'cure in Crown reports, and which should govern the action of the jury, That the jury must be satisfied not only that these cir. cuoistuMcis were consistent with the prisoner having committed the uct, hut they must also be satisfied that tho tacts were such as to be inconsistent with any other rational conclusion that the prisoner was the guilty person He tueu illustrated this position l>y 6eveial aralftgeui ?u? icini.b 10 wie met ol liin stepping out with thf prisoner yesterday, while she w hs temporarily unwell while standing at the prison hall In-low, he missed sight of her, and looked about saw another person pns9ing down the road resembling her. He became excited, am was ou the eve ol pursuing the petsou in the street, whet he heaid the accused vomiting at the far end of the prisor hall In illustratiou of convictiou upon circumstantial testimony, he asked it she had then iscitped would no any jury have almost instantly convicted him ol the offence, although he had committed no netu.il guilt After alluding to the several points of testimony of thi prosecution, in which, he said, they endeavored to cstab " lish the theory that the uilirier wis committed hy these cused on Saturday night, he stated that the defence wouli show that the deceustd was alive ou Sunday morning and therefore that the whole liasis of the prosecutioi would lie tumbled to pieces. That the pmnecution hti urged this point with appnrent force and even urged tha the accused could have committed the murder at no othei period of time. Alter describing tho course of the testi mony relative to the accused buving bean at the house o deceased on Sunday alter the murder is alleged to hnv been committed, he said the defence would show conclu aively that on her return, alter trying the door, the pre liability ol the absence of deceased was talked about b; the lamily, as would have been usual on such an occs siou. Tliev would show that on Sunday night the accus ed was at her fathers house?that she remained then v all the alternoon and evening?slept there tha night in the same bed with her sister-in-law, Mri Vnn Name, and in the same room with her mother ; tho she got up the next mnruing, got breakfast and nttende to her usual occupations. The baskets taken by bar t the city, which were usually carried hy her, they wouL show were tilled ou Sunday morning, aiid remained stand41 inglnthe tied room ol the accused at her mother'* hens during tho whole day on Sunday. They would show b' the preceding testimony thut the offence win not commil ted by the accused on Sunday night, and by satisfying th jury that the deceased was alive on Sunday morning, th accuseit could not be guilty of tho offence, if the theor of the prosecution was based upon uny thing like trull As regards the possession oi the property that the prose culion hud attempted to trace to the accused, the would show the gold watch to have been in other hand and in not those of Waite on the very morning th| they allege the accused had pawned it. This wotil be made manifest from one of the very witnesses calle by the prosecution bolore the preliminary examination Tho testimony ol the pawnbrokers of New York,wh had endeavored to satisfy the jury of the identity of th accused, he would show to be unfounded and without he lief. He would present the pawnbroker Adolphus will a double face?Gotze on one side and Adolphus on th other- and show the jury by testimony that he had nr away from Berlin'to escape that Justice that was ther awaiting him?such a witness was therefore not to b believed, nor did he think any pawn broking Jew was t he believed who refused to take the outh oi Ins faith i giving testimony in a case where his interest was to b effected by tile result. They would show that the motiv< if motive there was, of hope ol obtaining possession of thi $1001) talked of, by the commission of this murdei could have no application to the accused as sh knew the money was not in the house ol' deceases but at her father's. This they could prove conclusivel beyond the remotest doubt, and, therefore, no motive, c> cept the possession of proper'y worth some $30 or $4 could have prompted the accused to have committed th deed. They would satisfy the jury of the kind relatior ship that had always existed between the accused au< . deceased, and the love and affection of accused for th< deceased child. The learned gentleman contended tha this testimony would present such a doubt that no jnr; could unravel the mystery that surrounded it, or brina the commission of the offence home to the accused 1 wus one ot those secrets thut nought but the inscrutahh uye of Divine Providence could reveal at the last day In relation to the absence of accused from the housi of deceased on Sunday nigh*, they v. on Id show tha the accused had urged her sister, Mrs Van Nam< to go over and sleep with the deceased, on tha' very Sunday night after the prosecution now allege tin muider was committed, lie then alluded to the letn i found on Waite, that is alleged to have been sent by thl accused, and contended thai the t ue translation of the letter, if any could he obtained, was that she requested rVai e to hide the writings, w hich were the notes ul evi?, usuucs hi his ii'hhs iu nnr, una 1101 10 nine any "iniiigs," I us alleged by the prosecution. Her object in making thil request was to pre Tent their exposure while the officers were searching the home, Hint ihus avoid suspicion of her close connexion with Waite. He said they should not admit that any murder had been con.nutted, but ibntlho tire in the house must have been burning for hours before it was discovered, lie would show ih6t tbo drawers of tho bureau containing the jewellery were unlocked, and not locked, us was alleged by the piostcution when they endeavored to satisfy the jury that lrom this disclosure the jewelry must have been tskeu by a member ot the family, or seme one acquainted with the premises; the two boxes that the prosecution allege were not in the drawers at the time of the tire, but were afterwards returned, they would show were Jn the bureau, and preseiit them the evidence by the marks of the figure and site oi the boxes on the drawers as surrounded by the blackened smoke of the fire. As to tha ' bundle 'of clothes that had been presented to the jury as terming the chain of circumstantial testimony agsinrt the accused, because it was not blackened, and then-lore must have been returned by accused alter the fire wag discovered; they would as had already been shown by the prosecution, satisfying the jury that the uccusrd was not seen near the house, nur at the house on the night ol tho fire, and therefore that she could nut l ave been the person who returned the bundle, lie then closed with a forcible appeal to the justice ot the jury, by Reselling as the theory ol the defence, that the murder wss committed on Sunday or Monday night, and not on Batnrday night. That the deceased was alive on Sunday mornh.g, and the accused not out of the house of her mother ou Sunday night, nor on the Island on the Monday night, the night that they assume the murder was committed, it it was not commuted on Sunday. The court here t?ok a recess at ail hour for dinner. Aftfirnoon Session. testimony for the OFFENCE. The Distiuct Aitohmey asked that tho witnesses ot defence be excluded lrom the Court room during the examination of testimony, and he called in one ut a time. The counsel lor the defence objected to such an order, as the prosecution should have made the motion before they commenced their side of the case, and thtn thu rule would have,bora eeqnally Ihe Court concurred with the defence, and allowed the witnesses to remain.
