NEW YORK HERALD. N#w Sunday, October 13, 18447^ - " ? ? ? ?, ?? The > ew Klemerit In the Presidential Con test?Bitraordlnary Revival of tht <> Na tive" Party. An extraordinary reaction has taken place with iu the IdSHen days in the " native party" of this city. Their last meeting astounded every body. From a state ot great and evident prostration, the ' natives" have regained a strength closely ap proaching to that which they exhibited at the spring election. How is this 1 What is the cause of this remarkable revival?this change from weakness and insipidity to strength and activity 1 These questions are very easily answered. The " natives" hold precisely the same place in public estimation as they did three weeks ogo. Their worthlessness, inefficiency, and unfaithful ness to solemn promises are regarded just as they have ever been regarded by all honest men. But one ot the two great political parties, contending for empire and the "spoils," have discovered that the " natives" can now be made useful; and, ac cordingly thev are introduced as a new element into the Presidential contest. We are quite satis fied -hat the last meeting of the " natives" was swelled to itf extraordinary extent, by the atten dance of the whigs ol the district iu which it was h*ld The whigs are already, it is thus apparent, preparing to abandon their tickets, as they u'idjlast spring, and form a coalition with the "natives," voting for their congresfional and legislative candi d ites, and adopting all their principles about natu r*lizttion and foreigners, the Pope of Roma, and corduroy breeches, oa condition that the " na tives" in return vote for Mr. Clav. This is the explanation of the recent ez'raordinary revival of " nativeism" in this city?a revival which pre sents many very interesting subjects of reflection and remark. On looking over the reports of the speeches de livered at the late meeting, we are struck by the remirkable temper and spirit which characterizes them In consequence of the want of proper ac commodation and the tumultuous character of the assemblage, the reporters could not make a ful' report, but they have given us enough to enable us to form an accurate judgment of the violence, intolerance, and fanaticism of the orators. Ac cording to the repsrt in one of the morning papers, on* of th** speakers, in alluding to the probability of a disturbance of the peace at the polls in th? next election, declared with great vehemence of manner, that if a native American shnu'd receive a blow it would be the signal for the extermina tion of every foreigner! And this abominable and detestable sentiment was re-echoed by the crowd with every possible demonstration of al most frantic approbation Then came the candi date of the party for that district himself, who nv unted the stand and made a long speech, in which he characterized Mr. Maclay as a "vil lain," and used a number of similar elegant epi thets. Indeed, it is hardly possible to convey any adequate idea of the extreme violence and intem perance which characterized all the speeches deli vered on this occasion. One ol the most singular features in this new de velopment, is the adoption of " The Bible?the Bible," as the rallying rry of the party. One hard ly knows whether most to ridicule or pity a set of men, who, with hearts filled with all uncharitnble ness, rush forth breath'ng vengeance against all American ci'izens, born in other lands, and who have already placed their sacriligious hands on the sacred nrk of American liberty, yet shout out "ihe Bible?the Bible,"filiing, at the same time, the air with their blasphemies. Yet with all its violence, bigotry, folly, and bias phemy, this great revival of "nativeism"?for great it certainly is?it will exercise a most important in fluence on the decision of the Presidential contest. If the union between the whigs and the "na tives," in this city be consummated, as it doubt less ?will, the alliance* will have a majority of nine thousand in the city, and the effect on the State may be equally decisive. We conceive, therefore, that is the most important movement of the day in reference to the Presidential contest. The chances are that it will be carried through com plete. We will watch attentively the progress of this singular development from day today up to the election. If it be conducted successfully to the end in this city, it is all but certain that Mr. Clay will be next President of the United States. Thk Episcopal Convention?'The Troubles ok a Bt.-Horx.ic?We give in this day's paper a con tinuation of the curious proceedings in the Episco pal Convention at Philadelphia. Dr. Hawks, it will be seen,"is now the subject of trial. But the charges against him are of a different character from those brought up against the "brandy and water bishop." The doctor has long been known as an able and eloquent divine, and an ornament ot the church. At Flushing his speculations were rather unfortunate, owing to circumstances over which he had no control. But his character al ways ^tood high. It is certainly amusisg enough to see the man ner in which the bishops of this church are now iiauled over the coals. " Uneasy lies the head tliat wears a milrt," would now seem to be the correct reading of the text. We certainly cannot trnigine that all this arraigning, examining, tryii g, and hard, handling of the poor bishops can help the church. In mo't instances we fear that rival- ' ry, jealousy and bad motives, are at the bottom of these unpleasant wranglings and trials. The Expresses with Political News ?Duriug the last few days we h?ve seen how little depen dence is to be placed on the politic tl intelligence j purporting to be brought by expresses. Those things are generally filled with the mere assertion* ? of gamblers who have bets pending and in order to induce weak people to offer wagers. All sorts ol forgeries have been perpetrated in this way, and we perceive that one of the Philadelphia papers off-rs a reward lor the arrest of forgers issuing ex- I tras in its name. There is no de,?endence to be ' place I on any intelligence except that brought by the rfgular mail. SrNortuR Epptcr up Diplomacy in Political Mov- vfKNTS ?The coaliih n of ihe natives and the whigs in P.'iilad Iphu city and county, has had a smgular eff ct on the election in that State. Rut f>r that curious uni<?n Shuult w ?uld have had twelve or fourteen thuu-aud majority. The local j revoi'i:,on in the city l>as iiflicnued the State to n ? nt ol more th in ten ttiou*and votes and n-ary flelrMteu the democratic candidate. "W/ist great events trom little cau*e? ri*e!" Bon Mot on th* Jkxsky Election -The demo crats of Tammany H ill are now cursing and swearing at the interference of Captain Stockton in the Jersey election, and drelare that it ha* re united in the'explosion of a second " peace-m.ik^r " They affirm that but for him they would have had a large majority in the State?but have been de. feated, by Tompsoa, in consequence of his unpo. puianty and connection with the cod-fish aristo. crac? of Jersey. There's a good deal of truth in This Tbb Bible in the Election ?-The new party are going to rally under the Bible in the next elec tion. We will see what effect it will hava on then morals. Heretofore the old parties have fought under the back of the dev,|, instead of the book ol God. If the "natives" only allow the Hible t? guide/them it wiJJ be of some advantage tosocu-ty We will see^ ' 1 asml'S M. Clay will be iu ilnr cl'y. on the 23 instant, and make a great speech. He will be quu, a feature here. By the last accounts he was u, r mnectieut. It seems that he has abandoned th< . iintroversy with Oarrif Smith, or is afraid to ine, t htm. * Agricultural ?onT*atloo?Ai?*rt??n lustltats. This body re-assembled on Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, and proceeded to business, after the minute* of ilie previous day had been rea 1. Mr. Wakkman arose to bring before their no tice a series oi resolutions, which were connected with the protection of American production. He proceeded to argue that preventive duties were necessary 10 guard egamst the prejudicial influence ot foreigu comt>eiiiion. The resolution were lengthy, but iheir geueral teuor wan expressive of the desirableness and wisdom ot the protective policy. Oa it.e resolution being put they were carried unanimously. The Presidkni ?did that he wns in possession o( a num ber ol lact? that were furnished to him by parties the least cogrmant of their truth, una which fully substan tiated the vk'wi he had e*pie?s?.l in relation to the agn cultural interest of ihe United State* Tne paramount importance of a home market could not bu too much dwelt upon, aod its practicability could not be dountea by any wm viewel lu a proper light such tacts as he pro moted tocouiinuuicute lie was inlormed that the Middle s'* Mill* in Massachusetts, comumed no les?thad I,wo fl.-eces of wool per day, and that the aggregate annual value of th? ?uiiply required for that establishment amounted o halt a million ot dollars^- i hat went to show the possibility of fiiding a market at home.

On the motiou being put, a m-m'ier said that as an agriculturalist befelt particular pleasure in seconding that motion. O ivernmmi had bieu toe r? miss in its duties to the tai men interests It waf only lately that scitnce had thrown it* lik'ht on agriculture, aud the Federal Govern ment being rich had the m- sns of aiding agriculture, and he thought it cum-* now seasonably to demand theestao linhnien' ol the new di par ment a^ed for, and he thought th'-y shoul I urge upon their representation to Congreis , tha' it should take immediate action on the case. Mr. Vinos thougtu that the American Institute was a ' good wotkii'g holy, and that it would be more suitable than the sub committee recommended in the rupoit lor ine l carrying out the measure 8 -m r other members spoke a few words, when | Mr Bat.?? a observed that as aim ist every motion was i mid? a question of party, he thought it would be prudent : to m <k? every effort within their power to guard against ; the action of Congress a^f uming any thing of u party color, ! and aslied i' that was the tine to moot theJcousideraUon. i The Phksidm?t said that any remarks members might I chose to make would he acceptable, but he 8| prehended i that a government whose operations were carried on I through and re ted on party, would find it difficult to re ! mam unhfl'-cted by its vibrations A good deal of consideration having been givon tothe i q.ifti'ion ot tho referesce ot the report to either a sub committee or the American Institute, on the motion ot I Mr Knapp it was referred to the Agricultural Committee ol the American Institute. ' Mr K^Ai-r alluding to the resolution cf the previous day, us to the publication of the Convention's proceed ? ing?, mored that parties be invited to subscribe to a fund ! for defraying the expenses Agretd to. Mr Va* Em expressed his admiration of the President s ttJdre<s y. ster tay, and he wished to see it in the hands of every chill During the last year he had visited eight t hundred schools, and perceived a lamentable diflciency , in their knowledge o( the principles ot govemmtint and political economy. Hetheught education should be ol a kind corresponding with the institutions of the country. In New York they had sixteen thousand young m?*n, wno, perhaps, had nevnr read the cons'itutiou of thu United g-atfts, although they came forward to exetcise ? the franchise H>* trnnted that that Institute would take aome step in the matter, and that the time was coming when the pe?ple would know and think for themselves, and not be led by designing men, who flattered them, led them, aud c tiled them sovereign, but spoke ol them be i hind thescenr* as rkhhle. j The Convention shoitly after adjourned. In the evening a r'.ir.play ol fireworks at the Fair rround wenttff with ?ccl.tnation. and in the course ot the day the peiformance of a hand added the delight ot music to thnse others so largely enjuyed by the spectators of tho exhibition. I Thk Nkw York Gat.lkrt of Fink Arts?We hail with joy this commencement of a national gallery of paintings, and it is with pride we see a cultivation ot a raste lor an art which has alwa>s ranked supreme in every civilized country. The time will Bonn come when our home genius will need no u halls afar" to display his efforts, or no Engli?h patron to cultivate his latent talent. This collection (ihanks to its worthy, but alas! late .owner, Mr. Reed,) is the result of a fostering cme, of a deep love of the arts, in the elevation of ge nius; and many a leading artist of the present day can trace his rise on the walls of this gallery. Amongst the number, we observe Mr. Reeo'a ! discrimination in the sweet picture of Mr. Flagp/s " Match Girl." The chief attraction here is Cole's celebrated"Voy i age of Life," attempting a critique of which would seem idle in ue, so many having been already made; 1 and indeed, the present paintings have been so often before the eyes of the public, that for the same reason we would not particularize any single paint i ing. We perceive Mount's correctness of drawing j unhappily connected with a hardness of outline; Ingham's extraordinary finish, and we would add, I almost life-like detail, his exquisite touch, in con , junction with that waxy appearance in the fl^sh so i peculiar to him There are one or two small land scapes by Cole, which are, of course, exquisite. Altogether, the collection is good, and we antici pate the most benehcial results from it. Tempest in a Tkapot ?The greatest possible commotion and excitement prevailed on Friday evening in and around Tammany Hall, in conse quence of the nomination of a highly respectable and wealthy young gentleman named Gardiner, an one of the thirteen members of Assembly. It seems that Mr Gardiner is wholly unknown in the democratic party, and received his nomination ma'nly because he happens to be the brother-in law of President Tyler, or, as some of the noisy politicians will have if, the brother in-law of the Custom House. Everybody seemed to be loud in trie expression of disapprobation, arid there will probably be difliculiy at the County meeting on ac count of this nomination, ai.d another made at the same tune. Taking thb Vkii, ?We perceive that Miss Vir ginia rtcott, the eldest and most beautiful daughter ot General Scott, has t*k?*n the veil in Washington and entered it convent A ?ew years ago this young latJy w. nt traveling in Europe, and whs es teemed as the mo*t lovely and accomplished l.idy that tvn 1 -ft these shores She visited Frame, Gt-rtinny' a'td li?ly, nnti in those countries ihe 1111 powtig reremoiiiuU of the Romish ritual so dee, ly nffeced her mind that she became a Catholic What a Kirnm?1* and mysterious impulse it must be which induces one so young?So fair?so gifted? and so elevated In society to bury herself in the eternal gloom of a nunnery ! Mill.brism ?This piece cf fanaticism iahreak ,ng out afresh in nil parts of the country. From Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston, and many of the small towns in the interior, we are receiving ac counts ot the most ridiculous and lamentable ex travagance committed by these weak enthusiasts I It is fortunate, however, that the 23d inst. will bring them nil up standing, for that is the last day bv their reckoning.

The case having been submitted to referees, the latter reported in fivor of defendant. Plaintill' then mov ed to set aside re|>ort of referees, and the court d cided that the law allowed a builder to rtCover for work done, which has Itee.i accepted by the owner But there is to be deducted an nmple allowance lor all such damages a*

the defendant ha* su?taiued by the departure froin the contract. The defendant contended thai ha'did not aban don hi* contract, but was discharged, aud 1* conse quently eutitled to r> cover the whole contract price.? lSul the refcrees did not ttppear to have considered that the proof addaced e*tolili?he'l this position. The court thinks tbut an ow ner is ju<t|fied in refuung a buililer to complete his work lu a manner substantially dille.rent from the. contric.t, eithnr in the quality of the materials or workmanship This power he can exercise at anv stage ot the transaction, but does it at hi* own riik, and uules. he can prove the fact ol substantial breach of con tract ho cunnot justifiably interfere to prevent the com pletion ol the work. Every hreaoh of a special agree ment by one party does not authorize either to treat it as rescinded. hut some Dreache* do, although the precise rule on t his kuhject la unsettled, the owner is not bound to stanc' by silently and have a building erected, for which he will be hound to pay, it it is being constructed in substance in different from the contract. The Court further decides, that in this view of the case, the evidence present* the question, whether the d< fondant justifiably interfered. From my view of the teatimony, two ref trees properly ooucluded that the defendant wns not bound to allow the. Elaintitf to proceed with ttie huilding, the way in whleh e had proceeded. The rule should apply to both parties to the contract; and if the contract is in substance viola ted by the owner, the t>uild?-r may consider it rescinded, and sue for damages tquivalent to the contract prion The plaintiff complains that the referees should have al lowed the contract price for the work a* far as compe ted ; but we are of opinion with referee*, that in case* like the preg.nt, the value of the working materials only should be allowed, becaute when the builder disregards the contract on his part in it* execution, the owner may refuse to pay the contract price order.

It is reported that the whig rally at Rochester th< other day is unprecedented since the famous dayt of ihe crusades, and language is entirely inade quate to describe it. Since then we have had out gathering, and I will venture to give you " an ink ling" of it, as it comes within the province of lan gusge and the power ?f description. It being pre viously announced that the whigs would hold ? mass meeting in our city on the 5 h of October, such preparations wer^ made as were deemed necessary for entertaining a " multitudinous host.'' The morning of the 5th dawned upon us through | a cloudy horizon, and betokening an approaching storm. The rain of the preceding day had ren dered the roads ^exceedingly muddy, and every object seemed to have borrowed the sombre hnet of the clouds, and appeared in the most dismal I dress. Before noon, however, the clouds w?re dissipated, and the sun again looked out Irom hit fiery pavilion and clothed every thing, in the goider, sunlight of his beauty. The delegations from the several towns began to assemble at eleven, will the various insignia of their groups, such as pole* with living coons upon thern, banners with variout devices and inscriptions, wsgons decorated witl f.ntastic taste and filled with "fair ladyes." A little after twelve the procession began to move through Main street, amid the soul-stirring and en livening music, and the shouts and hosannas cl i the populace. Every house seemed embossed with people ; and from the balconies and windows, the roofs and chimneys, were hung a rich display o! I banners. The straets seemed like a sea ol anima ted nature. The people from Rochester, Lock port, and the adjoining counties, came in to heai and witness the movements of the day. The most interesting object, and one which seemed to attract universal attention, whs a large ball, nhout thirty feet in diameter, which was Co i vered witli mottoes, and got up by the citizens toi this occasion. It was drawn before the procession and, leviathan-like.it seemed to herald the approach and pioneer the way ol a mighty and invincibh ohalanx?a legion of freemen armed with ballot* and prepared for the work of regeneration in the political world. I The wagons and et eeterat were made ?o form ? krge circle, and within this pale the assembler multitude were addr^psed by Mr. Foster, ol Madi ?on Co., Dawson, of Rochester, and Fowler, Iron' ?'Down East." At the coi.clunon of each speech the "Green Mountain Minstrels," would deligh* the people with some of their inimitable w'm ?ongs The speakers were Itstened to with unwen ried attention for nearly six hours, and now ana then they would send up a shout of applause whicl seemed to shake the firmanent, as the sound was reveiberated by the vaulted canopy above. Such enthusiasm.as pervaded the mas*, I have not witnessed since the political campaign of 40 The thousands which were present seemed 'to live, move and have their being" in one commoii cause, their country's weal. Setting aside all partisan feeling and prejudice, it is an ennobling sight to see congregated toge ther men of every condition in life, of various avo cations and still more various opinions and creed* in the moral, religious and social world, impelleo by one common object, and contcioua of right coming forward to place their gift upon the altsi of their country, and join in the general jubilee ol joy over the triumph of their political principles. A whig concert took place at the log cabin in the evenine, and the house was crowded to over flowing Each piece was well executed and rap turously applauded, and every person experiencefl during the day and evening "a least of reason and a flow of soul."

These mountains are in the midst of the great valley of Virginia, 30 miles from Winchester, from which there is a railroad to Baltimore. They are I called the Fort Mountains, from their peculiar con firmation. They abound in the best iron ore, and by recent explorations, copper and manganese have been discovered, the latter in great quantities. The little valley, between two of the parallel ridges is called Powell's Fort, from one of the first set tlers, who is immortalized as a counterfeiter, smelting and working the native silver of the mountains, as tradition supposes. Tradition fur ther Bays that he buried in his lifetime several barrels, kegs, and boxes of coin in the bowels ol these mountains, and not a few experiments, fron tune to time, have been made to find out and re move these undiscovered deposits. From th;- uni lorm failures ot these experiments, the notion ol these kegs, <tec., like the United Stales Bank, p becoming " an obsolete idea."

Mr. Bbnnktt I write to you partly tQpraise and partly to blame; for while on the one hand I consider that the pub lic owe you a debt of gratitude tor your independ ence in exposing, in your piper, tke nefarious do ings ot speculators, modern financiers and other respectable rogues, in their connexion with divers rotten banks and other corporate shaving con cerns ; and in the misery and distress of those times, 1 cannot iorget that you pointed out the rock upon which we had split, and directed to the only means by which the nation could be restored to true and la ting prosperity j inculcating on the part of the people a determination to be individu. iinlly honest, to return every man to industry, and advising the adoption of the only sound, healthful, and uniform currency?a gold and silver standard of value. Your lumiuous articles on this subject, as well as upon the tariff', and the general laws of trade, must have carried conviction to the minds of hundreds, and have doubtless exerted a iiost salutary influence upon the public mind. This town is vulgarly culled Bubbletown, after a \'ew York Wall street broker. Some three or four years ago, thissaid individual intimated to the select men of this place, that he wouldgive #10 000, provided they would call the town by his beautiful name, instead of its old cognomen of South talent. This was something startling and unexpected, and of course the proposal cieated no little excitement in oar community?town meetings were call-d, and much eloquence extended in its favor. The stump orators prophesied onr exemption from fur ther tax lion in support of public schools, and it was agreed by a majority iu the fervor ot the moment, to accept the offer and ap ply the money to that purpose. A millen nium of knowledge was confidently predicted to be at hand. Tht5 old and most respectable in habitants shook their heads and advised that the money should be first paid in, before applying to the legislature to change the name of the town; but no, this course would be considered an iusult ? o the generous donor, and now what have we got but "North American Trust end Banking Com pany" Stock, besides, I believe, some real estate that none of us know much about. It is true that the interett has been paid up by the li beral gentleman on the unproductive part of the pro perty, but the substance is not there. Oar good name is gone, and we are a by-word and reproach to our.neighbors. It was the men of Salem, not Bubbletown, that fought in ihe revolution,that hur ried in defence of the neighboring towns of Kidge field, Bedford, White. Plains,dec , when they were invaded by a British force It was in Salem that Ma |or Andre was confined,and the house in which he wns imprisoned isstill standing How would those sires sorrow over the degeneracy of their sons who nftve sold ihe spotless name of their native town! We had no need of any extraneous assist ance?we are independent farmers. There has not been one individual in our whole town that has taken the benefit of the bankrupt act. We are an honest and industrious people, and very religious. The most respectable portion of ns are presbyteri ans. We have regular organized systems ot bene volence,?we have Bible societies, Missionary so cieties. and numberless others. The claims of all are duly and regularly sounded in our ears, and if we don't contribute up to a certain standard, we are sure to have the whole anathemas of the church hurled at our devoted heads, tor just so much money must be raised for thes<* purposes, whether we succeed in raising any thing else or not. Ever since "haying," our townsmen have been very busy with politics?attend me this that, or the other mam meeting It is all coon ground up here. The toiierf people among us confidently assert that the country i* ruined il Henry Clay is not elected. Of course, the laditt cannot remain tranquil while the other sex are so much excited, and they too have their constant succession of mats meetings, hut of a more domestic character, as the young men have inveigled them into an attendance upon ? heir meetings, they, the ladies, very properly con aider turn about to be fair play. 1 have already informed you, that we are a very benevolent people, and our rallying cry is, " Pro motion to American manufactures " "He that is robbed, not knowing what is stolen, let him know it, and lie's not robbed at all " But aside from politics, there are some of us who engnge in more rational amusements than in coon hunting. We to a hunting after tahhits, quails, squirrels and woodcocks, among these beautiful hills and val leys ; then, several small lakes, most romantically ituated, furnish us anglers plet.ty of amusement. These lakes are tributary to the Croton, and will, doubtless, at u future day, furnish a large reserve supply of water to your city. The plaa of raising them for that purpose, had not escaped the notice of the late water commissioner?. In time, these lakes will be a great resort for your eitizens. We have already to entertain a number el them in the warm season, who play the very d?I wilt* the fish, aud oar valuuble tune. Yours, ever, Izaak. City Reform. Frikwd Bennett? I am pleased to see that you are trying to keep the reigning dynasty of Gotham to their promises: but it is up-hill work. They are neither disposed io perforin, nor to take it kiadlv to be put in miad of their promises, and their ueimqaencca. You *r?, however, entitled to much Meek; for exposing their misconduct and dishonesty. Particularly so tor exposing and chastising the iaMlence, the arro gance, the bigotry, the intolerance, and the scur rility and blackguardism of the orgun of the party. Keep ou, sir, until you have brought them to their sena*s, and they perform their promises of relwrnt in such a manner that it will be seeu beyond cavil. We are told Uythe organ to look at the streets, and see how clean they are now to what they used to be. 1, tor one, cannot perceive it, aad 1 have been, and still am, a very close observer of that depart ment, but cannot see any material change tor the better. The streets are disgracefully dirty, and tut of repair also, Loth cattwav ana sidewalks, Tor which there is no excuse. The "natives' are ho self-sufficient, that to give them advice how to dean and keep the streets in repair, would be like throwing pearls before swine, in my opinioa?in tact, I know. Among the many reforms needed, the Court of Sessions would be much ihe better for a thorough cleansing; I do not mean tiie room, hut the officers. In the first place there is a great want of punctual ity in the judges and attorneys; they are uniformly halt an hour or more after the hour in coming into Court. Tins ought not so to be, the dispensers of lUttice (perh?|)s law would be more impropriate,) ought to be on the bench punctually at the hour aet, if not a little before it, in order to feet a good ex ample to jurors, witnesses, dec. 21. The Judges and Uistnct Attorney ought to he in Court half an hour before the jurors and wit nesses, in order to hear applications for postpone ment of cases, affidavits, &o., so that when the lurors come in ihey may he ready to go on with a trial, instead ot keeping them waiting, and consu ming their valuable tune without compensation, na is oo>v the ci-e. Jury duty has become an unjust burden and a gtievons complaint, and I can see no just reason why jurors should not he paid tor their services to the pu'dic as well as judges, lawyers, constables, dcc. Why should juror- tie compelled to give their services gratuitous tor weeks, wheu referees appointed by the judges get two or three dollars eHcn evening ihey sit tor only a few houre at u ttmel la this fair?justl By the way, I have ?o good opinion of jury trials; it is so seldom twelve intelligent, judicious men, can be, ornre found to uomposc n jury. In my opinion?and I spt ak a< a luror who knows?that three honest, intelligent, judicious judges would decide more correctly than pirorsgenerally do. It is too common for jurors to lo wrong rather than be kept from their dinners or their beds. Either let jurors be compensated for their time or jury trials abandoned, especially in civil cases between individuals. 3d. The Courta ought to be holden in the after noon, after business men have got through with iheir business, ins ead of the forenoon. Let them he held from 8 to 9 P. M., and putictual attendance or fine required and exacted from judges, lawyers, constablee.jurora, witnesses, dec. Then, and not all then, will business be despatched as it ought to bo Talismen, or talesmen, ought never to l>e re sorted to or admitted They ofrener dtfeat thaa promote justice.
