COUalNS k CO., M South h. American Institute?Former#' Club. Tuesday, December 3. StiEJkCT?"Jtfuf* at Manure." This subject, which appeared, blazoned by ad vertisement, and glorified by sundry stipenda ry editorial* in si-ve-ral oi the journals of the ci'.y tor some days past, should, from such prepara tory introduction, have attracted a larger portion oi the enterprising and industrious tillers and cul tivators oi the soil,than the theatre of the Institute exhibited on the appointed day. The fertilizing properties of muck, poudreUe, and guano, as in dispensible to the vegetation of our creature com* fort?, were discussed, with practical illustrations of the perfection of each?that lorcibly reminded us of a subject proposed to us ia our school-bjy days, lor an impromptu exercUr of our inventive powerr. " Whether, the games of "Scotch hop, testatum, or lour corner*, with the tool in the middle, were ol most advantage to a nation." Here our tubject was "Diuck, poudrette, and guano," and the ouly distinction we could discover in the process ol the two controversies, was that the Hist txer cised more penalty upon our judgment than prudence in our wit; and iu the *econd, the elements of each of these ingredient* were *o thoroughly analyzed, the properties to distinctly traced and t'eveioped, that your imagination was at ouce carried awav with the most sensitive conviction, that each component pait circulated within the range of your ollactory conveyed nrools " strong a* holy writ," that the subjsat was traced even to its " essential essence." At the ap pointed hour, the chair was taken by Mr. Kraser, of New jersey, and the indefatigable model of tell denial, Mr. Meiggs, acted as secretary. The proceedings of the last very small potato affair were read, an infliction of half ol a very monotonous hour. The tubject was then an nounced from the chair?" Much, ita mode of preparation and use " And hi re, as usual, sn interruption was caused by several resolutions prepjtel by Dr. Field, expressive ol the club's regret in the death ot the late Samuel Ste vens, a us lui and intelligent member, and of a highly comuliinentary character to the meiits of the deceased. These were read and approved of. Oeneral Tall <adue then produced specimens ol yel low and white ccrn, raised in the county of Dutchess, and complained that specimens were constantly sent in without reference to the system of cultivation employed Showed the difference between corn raised in Northern and Southern latitudes, givkg the advantage in stalk acd produce to the lake*. Kach of the apeciuiens exhibited, eight rows, were of great denienes* on the ear,of moderate height, and from the hardntsi of its character and insus cepubility of moisture, peculiarly adapted lor exportation ?each of these specimens meakured sixteen inches in length. The yellow quality, planted late in May or early in June. When mo frost has evapoiated, he consi dered the best soasou for sowing. The chairman obseiv ed that when he was in Portugal, the yellow coin from Bucks county, Pennsylvania, was highly praiaed. Mr. Tallmaclge recommends all contributor* of specimens to detail the point* of excellence, mode of treatment, lie. To a question from a member, It waa answered that the process of kiln dr>iug lor eorn meal, is not generally adop'ed. sifter this diversion irom the particular subject in view, the chairman announced again," Muck, and its vir tues." But Mr. Wakeuian had lo tell CoL Clark's system of lowing corn, and here was another interruption, until Mr. Smyth at length attacked the question in earnest He considered "swamp muck" good for nothing, uiiless decomposed by time. The u muck" in the Ohio is com posed oi animal and vegetable matter. He would recom mend the " muck" drawn oft the pond, and put on the land without lime. Gen. Tallmsdoe *aid our soil* require manure, and that manure should be adapted to the requirement* oi the soil. He questioned the economy ol " muck." The casting out, draining, combining with lime, shovelling lor two or three year*, would exbauat a* much in labor a* the value of the crop. Suggest* that if a farmer will take the dry part of lumrner, spread his manure with lime in broad cast iu spiiog? turn it under, when it will more easily combine witn the lime?it will add to the value ol the land. Here, again, the subject was inter rupted by a member reading an invitation to the club to attend Professor Gardner's course oi lectures, which was accepted. Mr. Field produced specimen* of "muck," as u*ed up- I on land exhausted of the element* of lertility. II muck is taken Irom a swamp in a running stream, it would re quire along time to dissolve ; from a stationary pool it is much richer and more nourishing His plan is to drain the pool in summer, get out the "musk" quick, deposit it in heap*, near the pond- mix it with lime, and carry it out onihe land, between the harvest and fall towing? ?now iavors the process. By the action of lime and iro*t, the muck is reduced to a powder : the muck as used in the stables becomes saturated with the urine ol cattle, when sprinkled copiously. He drew out 350 loads in nine day * including > even dollars for lime; thirty dollar* covered all his expense. Mr. Field produced some specimen of oat* raised by mis manure. Dr. Cartkh's experience nearly corresponded with thai of Mr Field. Dr. Gaboncr explained the influence ol ammonia upon vegetable cumpoat, and its acuon when uicd. dry or saturated. This gentleman very happily and professional')' explained several points of chemical inter e*t to the tanner. General Tallmadur spoke on the various qualities ol oats, and the great advantage ol sowing Scotch oats,whicfe imported at J3, increases to -.17 pouads He had no expe rience i i the virtue ol guanojthinka that one Ion of guuno, and one ton ofplaialer of Paris,laid upon the surface would produce great result*. The true mode of ameliorating the soil, notchnmioally, is by farm yard manure and lime spread on the field, which will produce (pom Scotch oats Irom 36 to46 pounds a bushel Mr. Harricon, L I., plan ted two fle d* with oats?ma'ivred one with muck and lime, the other with muck, lime and barn-yard manure?in 1941, he raised 41 pounds to the buihei; the crop fell olf in 18Mi he steeped l>ia seed oata in sulphate of ammonia while hi* neighbor could or ly raise 36 pound*, he had 41 in 1843 Thi* earth *mut affected hi* crop, atill the oat* ran to 89 Mr. Townatnd, L I, tried the muck 9 years with grt at tucceis; he drew it out and housed it?he re commends opening a bole in the atabld from one end to the other, behind the horses, filling it with muck, and al lowing it to become satuated by the water from the horses, taking it out and exposing it to the weather.? He raised corn at the lair, with poudrette, and was told he was awarded the premium, but never hoard more about it. (Here the officers of the club exhibited strong symptoms of self-reproach or some thing else. He put a gill of poudreue to each hill, turned the sod, and brushed it down, after harrowing it Poudrette produces better in a dry season. He obtained HA bushel* from half an acre, from this process. He believe* the di*e <*e in potatoes mines frem the clima'.e Here Mr. Meigg* carried round samples of turtle soup beans, railed by the Hon. James Parker, of Ambojr. Altei this intnrlude, Mr. Carter obiei ved, that if muck becomes too old, it i* useless, and that, under any circumstances, it could only be used when the land scree* with it The nature of tbe *oil should be itudied. Mr. War.ss explained the elements of |<oudrette, with an analytic precia>on, the result of much experience. Dr GAHD.tLR waa called upon to favor the company with hi* experience on several laws of chemistry as referable to agriculture, by far the most improving of the remaiks of the several speaker* ; and at the conclusion, the meet iug, which had thawed down to half a dozen, teparated, without deciding whether mnck, poudrette, or guano, was most the fertilizing manure to the farmer. Thk Cherokee Difficulties.?We perceive by the Inst Arkansas IntcUigcncer that General Roger Jones, Adjutant General ot the United State* Army, Gov P. M. Butler, Cherokee Agent, and Lieutenant Colonel .v.ason, of the United States Army, who were appointed the Commissioners to inquire Into difficulties heretofore and now exiding among the Cherokee Indian*, have ar rived in that country, where it i* honed their hign char acter and ability will be in*tiumental in bringing about a speedy settlement ol the misunderstand.ng which has for some time divided the Cherokee people. The point* to bo submitted for their investigation are stated to be ;? 1st, To ascertain the numbers ol the "Old Settler*'' and of the 'Treaty Party" who ara discontented with the Ron government. 31, Whether their discontent i* so great that they cannot live together in peace and harmo ny. 3d, To inquire into all the outragea committed on the Cherokees by ono another, embracing tbe common Indiana at well as chiefs, since the Ross emigrants enter ed the country in 1*33. 4th, Complaints of the 'Old Set tlers" and "Treaty Party"of property fiom act* ofthe ex isting government ol the Cherokee* 6th, All other causes of complaint which are calculated to produce dla content, with a view ot adopting tuch practical meant aa shall be deemed expedient.

There was bui It s the Electors, a large number of citi zen* present, to witness the proct t-ding*. A* 4 o'clock, BKitJtMi.* F Butler, State Elector, rose, laying that this being the day and hour prescribed by law for the assembling ol the Electoral College of the Statify he begged leave to call the meet ng to order, and to in form them that the Socretary of Statu was in attendance, and would precced to call the list cf Electors. Col. Youixi, thereupon came forward, and announced that the lollowing person* had been ascertained to lie elected Electors ol th s State, by tin official canvass, viz :? B. P. Butler, D S. Dickinson, State Electors; H. Ilalsey, of Sufl'o k; J C. Thompson, of Richmond; G. Douglass, N. Gtuy, .v. K. Ilavemeyer, J. 1. Coddington, New V'oik; D. Johnsun, ol ltocklana; J.

Each Elector answered to his name when called, ex cept John D P.irki?s,ot Orleans, when 'l'ho Secretary ot State announctc' that the Electoral College was now full with the single exception of John O. Pei kins. Lieut. Gov. Dickinson, State Elector, remarked that it would be necessary now to organize the College tempo rarily, for the purpose ol filling the vacancy occasioned by the non-attendance of Mr. Perkins. He moved, there lore, the api>oint<nent of John 8avage, of Washington, as chairman pro Um The motion was agreed to, ana The Hon. John Savage took the Chair. On motion ot Benjamin F. BuTi.hu, Hugh Husky, Of Suffolk, was ap[>oiuied Secretary pro tun On motion ot Lieut.Gov. Dickinson, the College now proceeded to ballot, (so the law requires) for an Elector to fill the vacancy?when Abraham llogcboom, of Niagara, was nominated by one o( the Electors. The result of the ballot (Mr. Butler and Lt Gov. Dick inson acting as tellers) wu* a unanimous voto for Abra ham Hogebootn of Niagara, and Mr. Hogeboom, being in alt- ndauce, took hi* seat. The Secretary of State thereupon announced that the Electoral College was now full. Lt. Gov. Dickinson (iddretsing the Secretary of State) here remarked, that the formation of the College being now completed, it was lit and proper, on an occasion so interesting auu responsible as this, that some individual of age ana distinguished in the public service, should be selected to preside. With this view, he took a pleasure in moving toot John Savage, the present occupant ol the Chair, be the President ol this Electoral Collegu. The motiou was unanimously curried. Chiel Justice SavAtik thereupon rose, and briefly ten dered his acknowledgments?adding, however, that in assuming the h gh honor of presiding over so distin guished u body, he felt that Irom his want ot familiarity with the course ot proceedings usual on such occasions, he should be obliged to throw himself on tho Indulgence ot the College. He could only promise his best effort* to meet its expectations. Hugh Hauev, of Sufl'ulk, was then appointed, on mo tion otMr. Uuri.KR, Secretary of the Electoral College. John Kkvk* Paige, ol Albany, offered the following re solution, which was unanimously adopted : ? Resolved, That upon the meeting of this College to morrow morning, the proceedings be opened with prayer, and that a clergyman of the city ef Albany be invited to attend lor that purpose. On motion, it was oidered that a committee of two be appointed by the Chair to carry out the foregoing resolu tion -and The President named Messrs. Paige and Butler as the committee. On motion the College then adjourned, to meet again this morning at nine o'clock. It is propei to state that Mr. Perkins, the elrctor for the Orleans and Niagara district, rem ind the capitol whilst the College were balloting to fill the vacancy occasioned by his absence?and that his absence at the time appoint ed, was owing^o an unexpected detention, from the re cent change in the Railroad arrangements.?Jllbany Ar gus, Dee. 4. The College of Electors of the State of New York re assembled this moraiug, 4th inst, in the Assembly Cham ber, at 9 o'clock?the hour to which the body stocd td journed yesterday afternoon. The proceedings opened with an appropriate and fer vent prayer by the Rtv. William H. Campbell, of Al bany.

A.?I generally take stiiiicient interest, when a crime is commuted, to try and puniah the offender (iuis.?Did 1 not bring in a man named Jack Kreeland, charged with having been intoxicated, on the same day? (This q'leition, after having been put repeatedly, aud dtemeu irrelevant, was at laat answered.) Ans.?I do, now you mention it, recollect that he was brought up by you, charged with drunkenness, and that he wai not drunk, and it struck me at the time, that you must have taken him t arty in the morning, and locked him up on your awn rtiptniihillty, and when no got sober, brought him up (Astonishment expressed.)

I must ask that tbis matter lie put a stop to?it t'oes not have the slightest bearing on the c>ne. 1 have got other cases to dispose of, and witnesses in attendance. Mr. Hunt then got up and made a touching speech about ita being very easy for the Court to hurry men to piison.fcc. Ho said that it was the first time he had ever baen charged with any offence, and that he thought it hard if, after having a charge preferred against him, and his case published iu all the papers in glowing colors, that he could not have an opportunity ot refuting it, and of showing the malicious nature ol the chaige Mr H. then went on to make the most unwarrantable charges against the entire city press, bnt was checked in conse qncnce of ono of the reporters getting up and flatly con tradh ting his assertions U ?Diu not the woman, ? erris, have her counsel, Mr. Camp, in the police office at the time I came into give bail? A ?1 bolieve he was there. <4 ?Did not he threaten my life, air, on that occasion.' A ?(Indignantly and emphatically.) No,sir! Court?Well, sir, what has this to do with your case t We are not trying Mr. Camp! Hunt ?I want to show, sir, that I have been threatened and iiitie?idst?d, and pressed in this manner maliciously; I, Sir, who have lived in this city to the third generation without a blot upon my name, nave been dragged before my friends and the public to gratify maliguant and re vengeful feelings. Coubt.?We can't go into all that matter. q?Now. sir?(throwing himself back and picking his nose) - Now, sir, di I you not say to me these words s? | "Sir, you told me that it cost you six shillings a day to go roun i and buy rum for men en Sundays, in order to get the house Indicted 7" A? I can't say whether I did say so or not, but yon did tell me something of that sort; if the court please, I think Hunt csme to me and said he had been to several places ou Sunday to complain of the houses that sold liquor, and that he went to the Franklin House, Cltr Hotel, (Hunt interrupting, "stop")?Tammany Hall, (Hunt, "stop")? Astor llousr,Carlton House; (Hunt?"stop, stop," roars of laughter;) and yon did tell me that M coat you money for rum at those very houses. Q?In a conversation in the vestibule of the Tombs, when you were with a friend named Spencer, and I asked you something about Uiia case, did you not sav that to commit me for outrageous conduct would be like cob mitting ? Quaker (or wearing hit htt in a church I? (Laughter.) Ann?No, air ; I am not a nan who is in the habit ol casting reflection upon any denomination of chriatiana. Ques.?Do you rtcollect my bringing in a man uamed John Davit I Coubt?What haithia to do with tho case I Hunt?I want to show that whenever I have brought in a person since this affair. Justice Haskell would not commit them, but always discharged them. (Laughter.) A Juaoit?I with the court would asaigu this man counsel?he don't seem to understand hia caae at all. (Continued peala cf laughter -Hunt looking unsettled, popped up and down, anu picked hit noie ) Th proaecution rcated their caae with theae witnesses. Alderman Hashrouck, on being called by the defence, testified tkat he win present when the womau waa brought in, atid by request of Judge Haskell, he examined the marks upon her back ?he found two or throe welta, but did not ate that the skin was broken and adviaed merely a i eprimand, believing the oflicer had not intentionally committed a wrong. Did I not state that ilie had seized me by the cravat and tore it. A?1 think you did; It would not r?quire a very heavy blow to take effect ; 1 regarded the injuries as lather trilling ; I thought she cried a good deHl lor ef fect, lor whin she that came in ahe did not appear to be crying. \Vm. r? kalis, late a police olli cr oi the Uth ward, testi fled that he knew the woman Ferris, and thut he be lieved he had heard her sav inprejei.ee of Hunt a few days alter tbe affair, that she would not have made uny Complaint against him if she had not been induced to. John H. Lkk, fc.q , callfld?I am a number oi the bar; I waa present in the folic e office on Monday, the day alter the assault, and llunt asked the Justice lor a hearing, dis > and he asked Hunt to produce his witnesses; he re plied he wanted the woman to be produced, that ahe waa witness enough for him, and asked Justice Haskell where ?he was. llu ? eplied he did not know. U?Did Mr Camp appear as her counsel ? A?He did, and alluded to some suit you had brought ngnintt him for libel Q?Did he threaten my lift! ? A?He suid this?that you were the sixth man that had crossed his paih ?that Jivt ol them were under the sod and he would live to see you them too. (Peals of laughter.) Camp was rather rough and rude ; Justice llaskeli acted iu a vi ry spiteful manner, and it seemed to do him a great deal vf good to have you before him ; he said he had kept his eye on you ull the time tb toughout those liquor cases; he asserted that you had told him, that you had paid six shillings for mm in the liq ior cases, and you denied it, and he repeated it somewhat ctfensively as I thought. Officer Cochrani:, called.? I am a police officer oi the Sixth Ward; 1 know Mary Ferris ; she is a common vagrant. <L-Was She arrested, sir ?

(Roars ol laughter) District Attorn*.v.?Oh, I'll admit she is a vngrant. Hunt.?But 1 insist upon proving that she is a high way robber, air. (Renewed laughter.) ltM OHDKR.? Well, sir, the Conrt insist that you shall not do any such thing. (A laugh.) Mr. Cox, tho Keeper of the 1'i'ison, was c lied to prove the bad character cf Mary Ferris. Hkcorukh? Her character is not at stake, sir. Hunt?No, sir, but mine is. lUcoaura?Well, you may bring as many witnesses as you like as to yours. District Attorney?I'll admit, sir, that she is a va grant, and has been in the prisoj for intoxication, Itc., and that a man lias no business to whip a woman under any circumstances whatever. Mr. Hunt then called Dr. Johnson to prove, ns he said, his good, excellent, and exemplary character as an cfli cer without any exception. Hunt then arose aud addressed the jury for about two hours, in the most curious manner ever heard in a court of justice. In tho course of his remarkable address, he endeavored to show that the whole town was in a con spiracy ag iinst him?the whole newepaper press combin ed with tin; entire police force, with the justices at their head, to persecute him. In relation to the assault, he said that he had the womau by the arm, and the resisted and used very insulting language, ond I suppose I unwitting, ly committed the assault, not thinking that Mr. Robert Martin, and a thousand others, would think any thing ol it. The reason I beat her was, that she threatened to tear my cravat and clothe*. (Sensation ) And, gentlemen? (a rap on the table with tho little whaleboue cane)? she actually?(rap)?did?(rop)?tear my cravat. (Rap. rap, rap? murmur of astonucment) I can't prove what I say, but it is true. She gave ma cause, but I did not dream ol having committed the assault aud battery, till I came up anil foun'l this man, Martin, had complained ol me, although 1 never saw him before, Hh then went on in a most curious uml amusing matter, to travel out of the ward and attack the press sgalo, uml then by way ofcie ating sympathy said :? Gentlemen, living in this ward, as I | married, and liv ing wnh my brother in lav.-, 1 considered it mv 1 duty to aid In promoting the peace of the Sab bath in this ward, und I nave done iny duty faith fully. 1 swore to support the laws when 1 became a Sundty oflijer?I did support them-and I will sup port them, if I have to sacrifice my lile? (a thump ou the table with fist, but no applause)-and if the Mayer's marshal had only done h<s duty, and had not violated the solemn oath he took upon tlie Bible, and gone about drinking bis glass ol brandy and water, and smoking his cigar, among gamblers and the lowest of society, on a Sunday, I thouid not have complained of him, aud this matter would not have come about. (No appUu .e con fusion.) Gentlemen : I know 1 committed this assault, but I don't think 1 gave her any more than ahe deserved ? aud I verily believe that- tuch is my nature, gentlemen that I should do the same thing over again. Doing what I did was no more than justice to myselt Gentlemen, last Sunday 1 took a man tothe police and had him committed, without any charge against him?with out a tylable or a lisp of a charge I had him locked up (The gentleman ought to be sued lor false imprisonment.) The affidavits in this case, drawn up by the clerks in the notice as the affidavit of thit woman, is filse. (A thump ) It was never signed by hirst aU-(twothumpt)-andshe never authorized its bcii g made out. (Three thumps) He had always shown a* much humanity as an) body else ?he had ?he had as much humanity in his brensr as the District Attorney?every bit of it. Mr. Hunt then launch- I ed forth into a long oration upon temperance,the adminis tration of public justice, and other equally interesting topics. During the temperance oraliou ho stated the im poitant fact that one man In the fi'h ward robbed the city treasury ol at least $80,000 a 3 ear, bj man .1 lcthuoe vagrants. The cati; went to the jury under on exceedingly favor able charge from the R?colder. After an absence of mote than hour, th<* jury came ia unable to agree. The court told them it was extremely ndvisuble thut they should agree one way or the other; hut said that the result was of very little moment, that it was an affair of very litte conn quence It was for the jury to deter mine how farforcecsn be used by otiiceis iu taking these poor inebriated ciealuns up After another absence of about hnlf an hour, being still unable to agree, they were discharged The lore man announced that they stood eight for acquittal and I lour for conviction. The court were of opinion that limit had suffered sulfi ciently, and that it would not be worth while to hav. a now trial, ond accordingly advised the District Attorney to enter a unite panri/ui He accordingly trade a motion for that purpose, but evidently very reluctantly. .lnoik.r Caw Henry R Schoolcraft was next tr>d I loran a>?uult and hitti ry upon Mr. George R.
