Torrey for Ab ducting Slaves.?Baltimore City Court. SECOND OAT. After the gentlemen of the Jury had answered to the call of their names, the Hrst witness sworn was Mia Moau.ta?(daughter of Wm. Heckrote)?She had trimmed the bonnet ol the girl Judth a few weeks before they ran away; thinks it wa* about three or four weeks before; showed some small pieces ol the ribbon. Thomas Hatch alias Southmcath alias Wu.son, sworn ?This was the most important, principal witness of to <*oy;a personage notorious for his ingenuity in stealing horses and other moveable articles. He had been con victed in New York lor felony to a term of three years, served his time, and is now again in custody here, indict ed for several similar offences, stealing a horse, two slavos,&c. He was in the same room with Torrey in jail. The counsel lor dtfendant offered an objection against the introduction of a convict of ft-lony in witness, but ih? Court decided against him, as nothing but the conviction of perjury disqualified a man irom being a witness. The following was his testimonyMy first conversation with Torrey whs in jail; he told me that he took three slaves from Mr Heckrote of this city; also a number ot them from Hartford county; the three slaves ol Heckrote's were an old woman, her daughter, and a little boy; Tor rey told me that hu had to persuade the slaves two or three times before he could get them away; I heard him speak srveral times what a faithful servant this old woman of Mr. Heckrote's was; he direoted the'n t<> meet him at Mt. Greenwood Cemetry, where "old Niokj" implicated with him, would secrete them till he (Torrey) would car ry them off; that he had carried them to Pennsylvania, from thence to Philadelphia, and theuce to New York. Croia examined by R Johnson?Hitch is my true name ; I went also by the name of Wilson Sc Southmead ; I never saw Mr. Torrey, before in jail; he made his con fession to me, after we were confined together thorn a month, or something better than that; it was before he attempted to break out; there were eight persons in the room | the others did not hear the confession, he made it secretly ; he aeemed to put no confidence in apy body els?i; he did not know mo before ; 1 did not mention it to the rest of the prisoners; 1 did tot think it proper ; the circumstances altered and that was the reason I mention ed it alterwardi; in my letters tJ Mr. Heckrote I made the first communication ; I sent for Mr. Heckrote; did not do it till Torrey failed in making his escape; I did expect no benefit for mo by my disclosure; I aid it voluntarily; Torrey stated no reason why ho made the communica tion; probably bethought he would escape; he told me he would blow Hcckrote's brains out it ho ever would enme in his way ;he had pistols brought in by his landladv; I did not help him in getting out; lam sure I did not do any part of the woi k in getting him out. Br the Prosf.cutino Attornkv.?The first communica tion I made by note to Mr. Heckrote; I never had spoken to any pprson before about the suhj?ct; Hume (one ot the prisoners in the same room) bad to get out and to send tools in from Philadelphia by Torrey's lmdlady;! saw her taking them out of her bosom, wrapped in a paper; lor rey shaved his whiskers off in jail Wm. Heckrotf. recalled?On my first visit to South mead, he communicated to me that Torrey had a good deal of difficulty to get the slaves away ; that they were secreted on Mount Greenwood Cemetery till he got a carriage; from there he carried them to Pennsylvania, whence they proceeded to Philadelphia, and thence to New York (Church street). Crotsixnmined -I visited 8outhmead twice; after the first time I sent him word to write me; I did not know what he was in jail for; no person was present at the time of the communication; I let him come out. Graham (Deputy Keeper) sworn?When Torrey came in jail he had long thin whiskers. Capt. lVui sworn?Know Soathmead since about seven years: he sailed in a ship with me about two years; I would not believe him on nis oath; he went then by the name of T. B. Hatch, from my knowledge of his general reputation, 1 would not believe him on his oath; 1 heard ofhis friends and associates saying the same. Grat (the Magistrate before whom Torrey was first taken when he was committed) sworn?The office at that time was full; young Heckrote was brought in, and identified Torrey as being the man whom he had seen at the gate of his father's house, with the words, "I think that's the man;" there was nothing peculiar in the posi tion of Torrey at that timo. Cox (one of the defendant's counsel) sworn?1 was with Torrey before the magistrate, when young Heck rote wai brought in: my recollection ol his words is? " The uight was dark, I can't exactly say whether that was the man, I think so." C amvbkll, sworn.?I know fouthmead;was in the same room with him and Torrey; we were six besides myself; Southmead himself tried to get out; I saw him sowing; was but one day in prison Xjxl, sworn.-I went to the prison to see Southmead; he sent for me; In his message it was stated,Davis (one ol the prisoners, alterwards pardoned) also wished to make some disclosures; I spoko with Davis; Heskrots with Southmead; I could not hear their conversation; Heck rote promised Southmead he would use his exertions to gtt a pardon, though he know not whether he would succeed. . . ? Cross-examined by the Prosecuting Attorney.?It was on the second visit that I heard Mr. Heckrote mentioning to Southmead to use his exertions to get a pardon for him. Hsxkrotk, recalled.?I made no direct promise; told him I had no influence with the present government; I would use all my exertions, but he should not expect anything; I never saw him before; I knew not what he was imprisoned lor; what I would do for him would be done alter the conviction of Torrey, and after he hnd given his testimony; this promise was from my own part. Here the testimony was closed. G. R. Richard son, the Prosecuting Attorney, rose and addressed the Jury in a brief buteloqueut and pregnant terms, full of argument and logic. While 1 write this, Reverdy Johnsnn is still delivering his great speech. I can't give you the report of it to-dav ; it is quarter to 8 o'clock when the mail leaves for New York. A verdict will probably be given on Monday. Truly yours, L. Murder and Rophery?The Chilhcothe Ad vcrtiier, gives a long account of the murder and robbery of Mr Frederick Edwards, ol ltoss county. We Cony the following letter from that paper detailing the particulars:?BouRNrni-i.E, Nov 20 - Messrs Editors: It is with feelings ot the most painful and ulHicting charac ter that I communicate through your columns the me lditcho y intelligence, that our much esteemed tnd re snected lellow.citizeii, Frederick Edwards, is no more ; and it is with feelings of the most iririescribstde anguish that I announce, that he. was foully murdered, in his own sleeping apartmont. by Borne villain ol darkness,who must have been more demon than human, lor the purpose, no doubt, of obtaining his money. Mr. Edwards slept in a room back of, and adjoining the store room of his relative, Mr. D Smyth, ol this place, (Bourneville)?and sometime alter miduight an sntrance Into the store room was (fleet ed by forcing open the front window shutters and win dow, from whence the assassin passed into the room where Mr. Edwards slept, who could net have awoke, until the entranca into his bed room, when, probably, springing up, he encountered his murderer, and received his latal wounds. He was stabbed in the upper part of the breast twice, once in his left side, once intheabdomtn and eleven times in the back, and was also badly cut in the forehead. There were evidences of a scuffle having occurred betwei u him and his assailant?the fingers ol his lrfc hand being badly cut, which must have been done by grasping the knife, which was drawn through hi* hand -and the blood found on the floor ol his bed ro;m was under n window at the opposite side of the room, through which he was probably attempting to make his escape, when ho received the wounds in his back Ho was also bruised in several places He was found on the morning, lying at the front door of the store room. Tho door had been unbarred, unlocked and open ed, probably by himself in a subs<quent attempt to escape fiom the house, parhapsto call for Iielp, but becoming ex hau tad from the lots of blood, lell backward and breathed his la?t without attracting any attention, until he was discovered in tho morning The door post was bloody, as if hu had gratped it previously to falling, to snpport himself His feet were in the doorway, which was open, and his body extinled bickward in the room. No cine has ?a yet been given to tho peijM'trator ol this nefarious outrage u(>on 'he life of an unoffending citixen. Of the character ol the deceased, we need scarcely speak.

After| personal re connr isiance, this gentleman decidi d to remove with his family and locate himself for the present in Buncombe county, in the persuasion that health, climate, cheapness of land, and all other considerations taken into view, that county possessed superior advantages: and accoidingly his flock of sheep, purchased chiefly in Western l>nn sylvania, is now on its way to Asheville, as also his re cnilar bred Scotch shepherd and shepherd'rdogs,thorough lvdrained to the busiuess of driving and guarding floefca.

Albany. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Albany, Dec. 1, 1844 Office-begging?Liberal Prophelt?Adjutant Gene ral. Mr. Editor The good people of this ancient city ore .often times not a little astonished with the prophecies, assertions and turmises of your correspondents here, respecting the course likely to be pursued by the newly chosen Governor. The names of varioss gentlemen are very confidently mentioned by these ? correspondents for various places, to be given by Mr. Wright when he ahull assume the reins of office; as though Mr. Wright were a man to re ceive the apparently expressed opiiiisn of the public by indirect inuendocs and appeals ot the character alluded to. You know that Silas Wright has the reputation of being a mail of extreme prudence and caution, and acts quite as often Iroiu the dic tates of his own well matured and well balanced judgment as from the hints of friends.t r the recom mendations of the people, though " the documents" be heaped Pelion on O^sa, or the Alps on Andes. One of your correspondents, who writes himself down " Hamilton," (albeit he disclaims any gift of prophecy ) has already, in two of his letters, pro vided incumbents for every office likely to be within the gift of the Governor el act, or within the choice of ihe Legislature ! Kind and considerate "Hamilton"! He lias named the U. S. 8enat?rs ?Barker and Hoffman ; the Adjutant-General? Temple ; the Attorney-General?van Buren; and others whose names do not now recur to mind. This may be all very well. But with regard to the_ office of Adjutant-General, it may be as wel' to iftferm "Hamilton"?that this is a peculiar of fice reposing solely in the gift of the Governor, ir respective of the Senate. Now, there happens to be applicants "plemy us blackberries" tor the office of Adjutant General?salary one thousand tlollarfc?some possessing qualifications, some not so much so. Any number ol Militia Generals and distiugui-lied military men from various parts ol the country?men who "have done the .-'tate some Service," and have been up to the waist in mud and glory upon the tented field?men who have had losses, and are likely to have more; ail these will parade themselves as candidates for the favor ? l the Governor in their particular branch of the public setvice. Among this host you may find a gentleman of your city,whose papers 1 have had the pleasure to look over, who has the benefit of niy name. Within a month he has twice visited Al bany on business. These " papers" come from the most distinguished political and military men in New York and ihe Union. Besides this, he liaa in a quiet way been of great service in " the cause;" and perhaps no one in the State was more uctive, ub initio, in suggesting and urging the nomination of Governor Wright?a nomination which every body now acknowledges has been the salvation of the State and of the country. Well, perhaps all this, backed up as it is by capabilities ot a high or der, may have consideration with such a man as Mr. Wright. I am no prophet, any more thnn our friend "Hamilton;" but, as regards the United States Senators, my opinion is, thai Messrs. Barker and Cambreleng will be the men. Look at it; the one coming from the extreme west of the State, of unbounded popularity,?the other from the extreme south, combining all the. elements necessary to fill the high and justly honorable station with dignity aud honor. With regard to John Van Buren and the office of Attorney General, everybody seems to agree that he will be, nnd ought to be the man. If you think this letter worthy of publication. perhaps it may hereafter be worth the time to keep you properly advised of the sayings and doings hereabouts. Jay. Jtlorrlavllle, Fnt [Correspondence of the Herald ] Morrisvillk, Backs Co , Nov. 28,1814 The Democracy 0/ Old Bucks AU Alive!? Proposed SimyUlanenut Celebration on the Eighth January ?Great Rejoicings?Firtt Spark of Nativtum? Female Abolitionists, fyc. J. O. Bennett, Etti. i ? The democracy ol old Backs is certainly com posed of most curious, wild and excitable elements. Ever since, the result of the Presidential election has been known, we have had nothing but re joicings and jubilees of every description. They have been so long subject to the tauuts of their sanguine whig friends, who deemed the election of " Harry of the West" beyond all doubt or cavil, that the actual result, in the success of Mr. Polk, has given them new iile, vigor and gaiety. It is now proposed that there be a grand simul taneous celebration throughout the county, in commemoration of the late glorious victory ot the democracy, to take place on the 8th ot January next, the anniversary of the battle of New Or leans. The ditierent townships will make all necessary arrangements among themselves, and either by public meetings and tpeechilying, or ai their private dwellings, will the democrats ot old t Bucks sutler a little ot their superabundant enthu siasm to escape. Every democrat who can afford a pair of tat turke>s and a gallon ot hard cider, it is expected wdl invite his poorer neighbor to par take of his cheer, so that none may be excluded from a participation in the general festival. Many t plump ptir of those delectable edibles, "Bucks county cup;ma," (dii-hed upas only a Bucks county matron can dish up) will be demolished upon the joyous occasion. The rich and poor will rejoice alike, tor every true democrat will keep "open house" on that day in good earnest. This is the most proper way of celebrating a victory, and al though the expense will not be an iota of what it costs to get up one of your gorgeous New York procexsious, its effects will be tar more lasting and beneficial The whig party here, with Ben Thompson at their head, and Jim Bryan at their tail, are in a state of perfect despair from chagrin and disap pointment. They reckoned so sanguuwly upon the election of Clay, that many electioneering move ments which might have been turned to account were neglected. Although, on the main, it may be said they fought the battle manfully, still they com mitted som<> thingo which they had better have left undone. However, as the battle is over, they hud better bury forever " that same old coon," and with it all their Hilly and rancorous hostility to the "d?d locofoeos." On the other hand, the democrats, with Tom Robs at their head, and tag, rag and bob tail at the other extremity, are all in great glee. By the by, I understand the democrats intend send ing Mr. Hos8 to the U. S. Senate, a station v^Jtich his eminent talen's and devotion to the cause of democracy, entitle him to receive; and in which, I have no doubt, he will do honor to himself and the Keystone State. Some of the democrats have won heavily upon the election, the greater part of which will be freely used in the approaching cele bration. The democrats had a very respectable "jubilee" at Brownsburg last week. Several of the most popular speakers in the party were on hand, and the utmost good feeling and harmony prevailed. The dinner, as prepared by "mine host," Mr. John Heiinett, was truly excellent, and would have done credit to the most perlect cuisine ot your ?ity. A spirit of " Nutiveism" lias begun to glimmer amongst us. Whether it will be smothered by its own weakness, or brighten into full blaze by a coalition with the whigs, remains to be seen A meeting of this " new light" party was to have been held at Pennaville lasi evening. A Mr. Titus was announced to speak. Whether it was a de monstration of much importance, I have not yet heard. That ancient lecturer on abolitionism. Mistrefs Abby Kelly, of Boston, and a Mi.a Jane fc. Hitch cock, of your ciiy, are announced soon to be in "these diggings" to stir up the sympathies of our good people in behalf of the " poor slave." 1 will endeavoi to give you a sketch of their proceedings in some future letter.

Wells?33 The Chargr ?Aid ScHiKrpKun charged the Jury, by request of ttie Recorder; and after enumerating the vari ous duties they were called upon by their ouths to per form, he alluded to the recent election as one of the most | important and exciting election* that had ever taken j place in this country; aud in connection with it, cited that portion of the stututes which makes it a misdemean or to obtain the vote* of cjtizens by bribery or corruption and *aid that it would probably come before the Grand I Jury of the present term to determine whether tho pay ment of expenses of naturalization, Ice. either by com mittee* or individuals, ior the purpose ot obtaining rotes, would not subject such persons to indictment lor a mis. demeanor, under the head ol bribery and corruption If any man or any body of men, feel it their duty to acnnln tho votes of individuals by iudiiect means, it is for tho , Grand Jury to say whether the laws ot the country do not prohibit them from such an excrffise of what they may consider their duty. It la lor them to determine whether, if a man or set of men say to an individual we wili furnish you with naturalization paper*, and pay all expense*, provided you will vote auch a ticket, it that does not constitute technically the offence of bribery. By the request of hi* brother Judge, the pre*idmg officer oi the Court, he would call tne attention of the Grand Jury to a subject of great importance. Under the pro lent organization of society person* who have been con Tictrd of crime and impiihoned, when they retrain their liberty ate thrown into society tinder circumstances at oncc detrimental and disadvantageous, a* with the brand ol crime upon their brow* they are looked upon with distrust by tho virtuou*, ard unablo to ob tain nn honest livelihood, they are induced or compelled to have recourse to crime. Punishment and imprisonment is cot inflicted merely a* a pun ishment, I ut is intended to net bs a preventive, and to induce repentance in the criminal that he may be again r. stored to society and regain bis lost position It i* es senti il, tht re tore, that the prisoner should obtain, if pos sible, nn tr|iial looting with the more motal and correct portion of the community, or, at ail event*, under auch circumstsoces as will enable him to obtain a livelihood withou' recourse to crime. He would therefore lubmit to the Grand Jurv, whether it would not come within their duty to recommend the passage ol a luw, by w hich prisoners confined in tho stute prikou and prnitentiory would be enabled to work ceitain hour* each day or at extra hours, i'he proceeds of which labor should b? re tained lor their beii' fi. to be given them upon their liber ation, that they might have some means of obtaining a stock in trade to start again in the world with.
