Tiie IVttkiy Herald to bt- issued to-morrow imriung, w 11 conlaiu an engraving illustrative of the last illumination of the "Natives" at the Hall, corner of Broadway mid Grand street; also the full report of Mr. Selden's great speech at National Hall on Tuesday night. Price only cents. Democratic Candidate for Mayor.?At a strong muster of this party lasteveuing, at Tamma ny Hall, Wm F. llrtVEMBYKR was announced as the denifcrauc candidate lor Mayorof this city for the ensuing year. lhu Charter Klectlon?Imjiortunt Issues In volved* The charter election i a this city has now assumed an exceedingly interesting aspect. It has required a degree of importance such us has never before at tached to any struggle for the. municipal govern ment of this metropolis. The issues involved are of such magnitude and importance as to excite the keenest interest throughout the country, and men of all parlies at a distance are regarding the move ments here at this moment with much anxiety. In the first place the integrity and premanence of the whig organization are involved iu the present municipal election. The whigshave now thorough ly awoke to this.'conviction. Mr. Selden has pre sented this aspect of the case in a very clear and forcible manner, and in the ward meetings, as will be perceived fiom our reports of some of them, which were held last evening, the feeling of oppo sition to the "native" movement is reaching a point of intensity amongst the whigs which we have rarely, it ever witnessed, in that party on any past occasion. The slightest suepicion of connection with the "native" movement is quite enough to ensure the expulsion from the whig ranks of any man who affects to remain under its banner. Every indication is afforded that the great men of the party have resolutely determined to draw the lines, and At once separate between the living und the dead?between the good sound old whig body, and the rotten carcase of " native ism." And in this the whigs are most as suredly only following the dictates of com mon sense and self-preservation. If the " native" movement be not effectually annihilated, and .that speedily, the whigs will be utterly broken up before lour years. But then there is another issue, and ona of far greater magnitude involved in this contest. The great principles which lie at the foundation of this tree government are jeopardized by this "native" movement. The civil and religious liberties of the country are at stake. It is a struggle between into lerance and bigotry and religious sectarianism on the one hand, and the principles of universal tolera nan and the right ol private judgment on the other. It is, indeed, a crisis in political affairs which every thoughtful friend of the free institutions of this land may well regard with deep anxiety.? The authors of this "native" movement, buoyed up by their triumph here last spring, have been ex tending their designs against the religious liberties of the country. They have been contemplating the organization of a party for the presidential cam paign. Appezling in many of our principal cities to the worst passions of the human breast, and infla ming the religious prejudices of the less enlightened portion of certain cittBves of Protestant citizens by the most incendiary publications, they have been actively endeavoring to form a party strong enough to exercise an influence on the general government. Contemptible, weak, and despicable as it may ap pear, such a movemeut is not to be regarded without alarm. All good citizens, who look upon the his tory of the past, will'dread such a movement, and ought without delay to unite in crushing it for ever. Let this demon of religious persecution, that has dared to exhibit in our midst its hideous visage, stained with the blood of patriots and mar tyrs, be at once and for ever driven back to its den, with universal execration and disgust. We have very little fear as to the issue of this struggle between the intelligence and enlightened republican feeling of this city, and the miserable "native" movement. Mr. Selden has fairly got his foot upon it, and though it may wriggle a little, and convulsively twist itself, the thing will give up the ghost on the day of election. We trust, how ever, that Mr. Selden will let it feel his heel to iu latest gasp. There is both prudence and satisfac tion in giving a snake an effectual killing. Mexican Affairs.?The New Orleant Picayune ol the 12th inst., gives the following paragraph : We lpam that the Mexican Conaul in tbii city, Senor Anatigoiz, has received i tut ruction* t? cloie the Conau late in this city, and thai he intend* doing so before the cloze of the month. It appears by this that Mexico is preparing for some demonstration against this country. It has been thrown out in some quarters that she will at once confiscate all the American property within her borders.she does so, what will our govern ment do in return f Southern Travel.?We learn that an important arrangement?important to travellers-*-is about to be made, by which passengers leaving here at five o'clock in the afternoon will reaclt Washington the next morning. If this be carried out, as it un doubtedly will be, those who visit the south will find it to their advantage to take the route on which this improvement is effected. We believe that the "Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore llailroad Company" is the line that contemplates this great change, so beneficial to the public. And in addition to the time saved, there is to be a re duction in the price of fare, thereby giving a dou ble advantage to travellers on that road. Travel to Europe.?Our beautiful packet ships are filling up with passengers. More than we thought of, are to becom*? tourists in Europe, in the ensu ing season. We learn that the famous Roscius, to sail on the 2fith ins:., for Liverpool, and the equal ly famous Siddons, to sail on the 2fi;h ol next month, have already neatly all their state rooms engaged. Americans will shine in Europe this year. Guano?The British batque Wilson, from Icha boe, arrived at Charleston on the loth inst , from Ichabo--, in ballast. We learn by her that there was but about 8000 tons of guano on the island, nnd ihat there was about 250 sail of vessels waiting which had gone out for cargoes, mos! of which will have to leave, as did the Wilson, in ballast. This article is attracting the universal attention of agri culturists, and has been found to surpass in value of quality any other manure ever used. Musical,.?The Warden Family commence a series of concerts in this city during the ensuing week. They are highly spoken of as very able musicians and vocalists, by the Philadelphia pa pers, in whose neighborhood they have been du playing their powers. The Anglesea Singers gave a concert last even ing at the Society Librar-y Rooms, Broadway, which was pretty well attended. These vocalists appear to be rising in public estimation, and it is expected they will repeat the performances in thin city. Sanquirico's Concert.?This magnificent m meal entertainment is to be given on Monday ne: Just look at the programme. Steame?. Niw Champion ?We are indebted tr Captain Srone.of the fine steamer New Champion for the despatch with which he forwarded rui parcel*, and Adams nnrl Co 'a messenger. H* mtde a quick run from New Haven, on Wednes day, beating the United States mail several hours -"I-' 'II " ?' Extraordinary Theatrical Revolution in Exoland and th* United States.?Nothing has astonished us more than the accounts which we have received by t'>e last arrival Irom Euro|>e, of the extraordinary mariner in which Mias Cushman, Mr. borrea?, and Mr. llackett, all ol them Ameri can artists, have been received in London. The enthusiastic leivor with which the London journals, without exception?speak of MissCush nian and her acting, is so different from the cold, cautious, and restrained tone which usually cha racterizes the criticisms ol the English metropoli tan press, that we may.well feel astonished. Mid Cushman has created a sensation in the theatrical world ol Loudon, such as had no parallel since the time of Kcao, Kenible, or Miss O'Neill. She is represented in the inest unhesitating manner as the only great actress of the age, and she is declared to have already established claims to the tragic crowu ol Mrs. Siddons. Mr. Edwin Forrest, on the other hand, has entirely failed in eliciting the favorable opinion of the London audieDcesand cri tics. His performances have been criticised with great severity, but strict justice; and he is set down us a respectable second-rate or third rate actor. Of Mr. Hackett, not much is said, as they had not seen much of him, but what is said is in the highest degree complimentary to that very finished and ex cedent actor. Such ts the very remarkable thea trical intelligence which wc have just received from London. As may he readily imagined,the particular frieuds of Mr. Forrest here arc very much chagrined, in consequence ot their favorite'sjill success in obtain ing a reversion of the judgment pronounced against him,on hi6 first appeal to English opinion,some years ago. One of Mr. Forrest's admirers, a miserable and conceited scribbler in the Morning Newt,? who pretends to know everything about theatiicals and the drama, but in reality knows just nothing,? aflects to have discovered the cause of the remarka ble outburst of public opinion in London in favor of Miss Cushman, who has been hailed there as the regenerator of the stage, and a second Mrs. Siddons, whilst Mr. Edwin Forrest has, by the same jndges, been assigned his appropriate position ns a third rate, or possibly in some cases a second-rate actor. This critic insinuates that Miss Cushman lias been indebted to the good offices of Mr. Macready for the enthusiastic encomiums which the London press have pronounced upon her. The absurdity and falsehood ol this will at once appear,when the well known fuct is slated, that the very papeis which are and have been inimical to Macready are as loud as any in the praises of Miss Cushman. But, besides, it is very well known that Macready and Miss Cushman became estranged before the departure of the former from this country. The public will thus be able to estimate at its proper | value this paltry attempt to depreciate the effect ol the warm laudations of Miss Cushman by the Lon don press. By her own unaided talent and genius, that lady hasearnrd this exalted reputation, and au intelligent public will not permit such efforts as that of the Morning News critic to detract from it. Here let us reflect for a moment on the singular and interesting indications of anew era in the his tory of the drama, afforded us by the triumph of Miss Cushman. We have repeatedly, in speaking of the declining fortunes of the drama, Tin both sides of the Atlantic, for the last few years, stated as one of the prominent causes of its decay, the traditionary influence of the green-room. Young and rising, and genuine dramatic talent was judged not on its own intrinsic merits, but by comparison with some imaginary standard created by the dreamy recollections of the past. And following out this idea, we have more?than once expressed our belief that if any great dramatic genius was again to resuscitate the English drama, it would make its appearance in this country, far away from any of the associations, influences, or conventionalismsoi the "old Drurys," as they are called, either of Eng and or the United States. And so it has been.? j The two greatest actors of this age have been thus produced. They are Miss Cushman in London, and Mr. Anderson in America. The influence of Miss Cushman's signal triumph on the London stage, will be great aid enduring. A new era in the history of the English drama will date from this period. Bold, original and power ful dramatic genius will be developed in many quarters on both sides of the Atlantic, and the stage receive an impulse which nothing else could have communicated. Wc have given, the London journalists say, a second Mrs. Siddons to England; who knows but we may ulso be enabled to give them the next Shakspeare or Sheridan? What there to prevent us from thuspay iDg off apart of the debt which our literature owes to the fatherland, long before the scoundrel legislatures of the repu- ] diating States be able to settle their scores with the same old stock? Mrs. Mowatt's new comedy ?the first American comedy?will be produced next Monday. Is there spirit, is there feeling, is | there common sense enough in the "upper ten thousand" ot this city to show themselves at the Park on that occasion ? Verily, they would do well to redeem their character for people of taste and intelligence on that occasion, and on every other suitable occasion which may present itself hereafter. Are ye not ashamed, ye conceited, empty-headed, impertinent, assuming, purse-proud cod-fish aristocracy of New York, that ye did not find out what a treasure ye had in Miss Cushman? What have ye to say, ye miserable critics, windy, conceited, and vaporing as ye are, that ye never ! found out the talents of this " second Mrs. Sid dons 1" A more burning brand of shame and dis grace could not be stumped upon the taste of the mushroom fashionables and addle-pated critics of | New York, than this universal, liberal and gene rous outpouring of applause by the London press on the genius and talents of Miss Cushman ! Mr. R. Ow?n on Socialism.?This highly t lented philanthropist commences his course of le tures on this subject next Wednesday eveninv, the Minerva Rooms, Broadway. His first di course will be on the philosophy ol Infant Educ tion. His well known abilities and the attentii he has paid to this and other parts ol the subjei upon which he is about to trpat for a great numb of years past, promise a series of lectures of no < dtnary nature?such as cannot fail to interest all from the resident of the most Btately building the most humble cottage?the Minister of religi ?the educator of youth?the philanthropist?j triol, and legislator. Movbmrnts of Travkllkks?Amongst the arri vals at the "Amor" yesterday, were Martin Brim mer, Eeq , ex-Mayor of Boston; Judge Douglass, Illinois; Gen. Ward, West Chester; Mr. Hutchin son, of Sheffield, England: Mr. Hagins, Glasgow, Scotland; Don Pable Soler, and Baron de Mau schuch, anuounced yesterday from Barcelona, have proceeded to Texas.

Packkt Ship Patrick Hknrt.?We see by the Liverpool papers, that Captain Dalano, of the Patrick Henty, pleases all passengers who go in his ship. On his last trip, tney sent him the annexed note: ?

WlieiilMll>*eM>a?iMW?aawl|IM<? TWH*?-fci III Tl?e WltlR Ward Mcitlngi Last Nlgltt-UrMt Spirit and tCiithualaain?The Whigs fully arrayed against the Natives The Whips were moving all over ihe city in many i?f the Wards last night. It would be difficult to -xapgerate the spirit und enthusiasm which were manifested At every meeting the fullest determi nation was eviucf d to stand by the whig ticket, the whole whig ticket, and nothing but the whig ticket, and to sweep away every vestige of the " Native" rump. The MBIT1NGI IN TUB TENTH WARD which took place at Crolon Hall, was crowded ? After the organization, the nominations of Ward OIKcers were presented and confirmed. A little difference of opinion waa manifested with respect to Mr. Ferry, nominated as assessor, on the ground that he hud been nominated also by the "Natives." Finally a resolution declaring that the whigs of the ward would not vote for any candidate who was nominated by any other political association, was proposed and unanimously adopted. Shortly after wards, Mr. Selden made his appearance, mid was greeted with tremendous applause. Alter express ing his gratification on finding such a large assemblage ; und staling that although it was somewhat unusual for a candidate for ofHce thus to address the people, yet he felt that he owed it to the whig cause aud to himself to stand ready to answer any questions put to him by the people on any of the great political topics of 'he day, or any of the issues involved in this elec tion. Mr. Selden proceeded to advert to the "na tive" movement as follows:? I desire now to call your attention to the "Native Ame rican" movement. I do not intend to reiterate what 1 sai l on that subject in National Hill, at probably many cf | you heard ine on tbat occasion, and those who did not will have au opportunity ot seeing what I said in the Wttkly Hnul'l 01 Saturday. Bat it is mv design on this occasion to advert to some matters connected with this subject,on which I had not time to remtik a: the meeting in National Half. In 17D0 or '91?1 will not be positive us to the dates?the founders ot this republic had under con sideration the subject of admitiing imigrdnts irom abroad to the privilege of American citizens. The first law that was passed allowed persons from nbroad on renouncing foreign allegiance to become voters after two years resi dence in the United states, and one year's residence in the Statu in which they made their application. This was the starting policy of this couutry. It was a policy that received the sanction of General Washington. (Loud cheers.) It was a policy that received the sanction oi that CoDgress which first put in motion the. machinery of our free Government. (Cheers.) Subsequent to the pas sage of that law, and prior to the year 1795, great distur buncos broke out in Europe. A civil revolution was passing over France, a revolution marked by the most horrid atrocities of civil war. It was apprehended that the people of Europe would be drawn in great numbers to these short h, and thus the whole subject ol the natural ization laws was again brought under consideration, and a law was passed n quiring u residence of seven years as a qualification for eligibility to admission to the privi leges of citizenship That law also received the sanction of General Washington during the second term of his Pre sidency (Loud cheers.) And here let me remind ynu that there was not odo great public measure which roc civ ed the mark of his approbation that was not in conlormtty with American politics, calculated to advance the honor, interest and permanent welfare oi this great nation. And I lor one say, that if on any subject of vast moment I en tertaiced a doubt, I would at once abandon my opinions and adopt, without hesitation, those of Washington, if 1 found that he had expressed himself on the subject In 1798, during the administration of the elder Adams, the difficulties which had existed in Europe, became still more extended, civil war broke out In its utmost violence all over France?revolution was threatening in England and in Holland, and it was supposed that those difficulties would purge themselves in part upon this continent lu this state ot things the law of 1798 was passed, whereby fourteen years residence was required. In 1802,however, this law was repealed, and the former one, which had re ceived the sanction ot General Washington, waa revived, and ever siuce that time it has continued in force. It is now protended by this " nntive *? movement that there is danger to be apprehended from the con tinued operation ot this law. At National Hall I showed the utter absurdity of that. (Cheers) We have in this country land enough for all our native citi zens, and land enough for all men who may come amongst us (cheers) There is room enough for us who have been reared in a land of liberty?who have been taught by our fathers that freedom is a right that belongs to the human race, without distinction ot religion, or name, or language, or country, (tremendous cheering) aud there is now enough for those who, fleeing from foreign lands and hereditary despotism, seek to participate in those blessings of liberty which we enjoy. (Great cheering.) It is beneath our dignity as American citiz ns to talk ot danger from foreign influence, because thousands el hardy, athletic, and industrious men aro seeking this land as an asylum from oppression. (Cheers) They came to dwell with us?to act with us?to become citizens in good faith, and they ought to be received. iCheer* ) And I am not afraid that foreigners from any quar ter of the world; will not become good American citizens when brought into doily contact with us, and share the blessingsfofour free government. (Great cheers ) They can not put their foot on the Amerioan soil and live amongst us five years without becoming earnest, faithful, and grateful lovers of liberty and order?useful and important auxiliaries in maintaining and perpetrating the free institutions of the United States. (Great and protracted cheering, and cries of "that's the talk '') Sometimes, like ourselves, portions of those foreigners may be foolish, but we can soon set them right. We know the rights of men and we will teach all to know and respect them. (Cheers ) But these immigrants a.'d toournumbers and our strength. They do our work. They increase the great interests of the country. There is room as I said tor all, and work for all. And I for one would be willing to convey all tho subjects of foreign tyranny to this land, thereby freeing them from bondage and securing to them aud their posterity the rights of freemen. (Tremendous cneering.) Mr. Selden then dwelt at some length on the value of foreign immigration to this county?on the industry, frugality, 'and general good conduct of the masses of working people, who come to this country from abroad, And after some eloquent re marks denunciatory of the mingling of religious feelings and principle* with political contests, concluded by ex horting his audience to faithful and resolute and active exertion in the whig cause.) After six cheers for Mr. Selden, the meeting ad journed. Tlt? FOURTEENTH WARD. There was a large whig meeting in this ward last night also. Mr. Selden, who appears to he in defatigable in his exertions, was present there also, and delivered a very able and eloquent speech ? As it was, however, pretty much in the same strain as that which he delivered at Croton Hall, it is not necessary to report it The feeling in this ward against Nativeism was very strongly express ed, and according to all appearances, Mr. Harper will not even have as many votes as Mr. Selder calculated?six thousand?municipal police watchmen?retainers?corporation rag-tag and bob-tail and all. Proposed New Gas Company?A Superior Ar ticle supplied at Fifty per cent Reduction on the present charges* There was but a limited attendance at the ad journed meeting on this subject, which toojt place at the National Hall last evening. After some little delay beyond the time appointed (or the meet ing, Mr. Kentish came forward and said that the prin cipal gentleman who had taken great interest in the matter, were otherwise engaged this eveniny, nn l as there would be another meeting shortly at the American Institute on the subject, when the whole affair would be fully gone into, it would not be ne cessary for him to enter into a full detail ot the matter on the present occasion. But for the satis faction of those present he would give a few facts. With a capital of $20,000,a company would be able to produce as much gas of a greater density, and supply it to the inhabitants, thnn the works in Cen tre street, with a capital of $2,000,000, and that too at a price 47 per cent below what was at pre sent charged, and an article that would give twice the quantity ol light; yet, at the same time, afford to the stockholders a profit of at least ten per cent The reason of this was, that the company alluded to had to bury in the streets about a million and a half of their capital in piping which this proposed company would uot need The inhabitants would be supplied with any quantity they might require either daily or weekly, and tiie same fitting now on pre mises would answer all the purpose* tor which they were intended. The gentleman then entered into a series of figures to explain this statement, which appeared perfectly conclusive and satisfac tory to those present, lie illustrated the fact by a small iron cylinder of about three feet high and six inches over, which, he said, would contain eighty feet of gas, sufficient lor one jet or bat-wing burner, for eighty hours, and this could be afforded for something less than thirty cents. They could, in deed,afford to supply g.ts for about twenty cents the hundred feet, hut this was not at pr sent necessary, a eaving of fifty per ceot to the inhabitants would be a very handsome bonus, and pay the sharehold ers and those concerned adequately. It was pro Eosed to establish the company by the issue of one undred dollar shares. Twenty thousand dollais would not be required at the first outlay, and, ther lore, it had been suggested to make the sharespay able by four instalments. A gentleman present suggested that if the shares were reduced to twenty or twenty-five dollars each, and a greater number issued it would make the matter more popular, and be brougnt quicker into operation. Mr. Ksntish said, that that was a matter entire ly at the ortton of those inclined to subscribe. It was then moved and carried unanimously, that the meeting be adjourned to the American Insti tute on Wednesday evening next, when the niattei would be gone into more minutely. Thus has the overcharged residents of this city every prospect ol remedying a great injustice, ant! put'ing down the imposition of great monopolies It is for them only to put their shoulder;.' to the wheels Rteaiavariorv of Psrsihrnt QtnwcY.?We lear that at asp rial mretlne ot the Corportitirn of H.irvnr College, held last evening, a letter was received Irom tli Illou Joilah Quincy, resigning the office of President' the. University Court of Oyer and Terminer. Before Judge K droonds. March 90?7Y?s/ of Mary Undine?The trial of this infortuuste woman commenced tbii d jy bef.-re Judge tOdmondr, :ind un had been anticipated, the awful tragedy villi which her name is associated, drew together an inxioua and numerous crowd ol spectator* who thronged he Court during the day from an anxiety to s. c the pri soner, us well us to listen to the revolting details of the awful crime with which (he stands charged. A' about hall past 9 o'cl ck she entered the Court room iccompanitd by an officer, after a brief ?ojouni in the t?e|ier's room, having arnred at the City Hall in a csr 1 ige at an eurjy hour. He: step was l-ght an 1 elastic, is the quickly crossed the Court room und took her seat ov the lire stove in the room, She recognised one of the officers ol the Court, with whom she shook hands, and remained seated calm and silent, her eyes fixed down ward, i'he remained in deep meditation far some tiuie, uer countenanco betraying the deep conflict that was passiug in her bosom. It was a fearful, a trying occasion for one iu her condition, She sat at that moment nearly within arms length of her accuser*, consisting of tour female witnesses and some others in the Court with none else present but the otflrera of justice and one or two re porters of the press. All preserved a solemn silence, which was occasionally bioken by the loud bustle in the vicinity of the door way, where the crowd stood jam med up together anxious to force their way<in?such was tue desire to sec her. She was dressed in leep mouruiag; a black silk shawl, deeply fringed, was thrown over her shoulders, over which was loosely ted u small black meriuo cravat. She wore a oonnet, with a light black veil drawn over her couutentincs After a short period, tho court began gruluaily to All up, and aho occasionally conversed with some acquaintance or frieud?her son?who alio arrived, joining in the conversation, which evidently referred to ucreu"f. A man shortly alter entered the court room, with ii lirge package of hoards, some baskets and folds of j paper, the sight of which created adoep murmur amongst the crowd. These wero Irom the sc ino of the murder. As the hour for opening the court (10} o'clock) ap proached, the rush became intense, and there was u con tinued bustlo and run for places. It has been iutlmateil by her counsel to the reporters, that she feels keenly sensitive at being styled " Polly," which was merely a nick name that was given to her by some of the fraternity at her former trial She was always known as Mary Bo dine amongst her relatives and acquaintances. The Court opened at tho appointtd hour, when? Mr (JsiHiM, htrVtounsel, applied for leave to conduct the prisoner to her seat. She was then led to her place, leaning on i\lr. Graham; and on taking the chair assigned her nrar her counsel, seemed to feel deeply her awlul situation. Her countenance was deadly pale, of an almost parchment hue?and born an expression of calm and set tied resignation ns to her fate. A pensive gloom hung about itit would seem as if every gleam of hope had vanished She betrayed a general ex pression of deep con if her very spirit had fled. Her long suffering and severe effect on her. With her n suspense have had a severe effect on her. With her need hung downwards, her shyness of manner, made her seem to shrink from the rude gaze of many who flocked to see her, from whom she seemed as if conscious she received no sympathy Her hair is dark auburn, and|Uung in loose ringlets, neatly arranged, at either side of her iace. Her eye occasionally wandering restlessly?she looked the living embodiment of despair. Two of her female relations, her mother and daughtbr, took their places near her at the commencement of the trial, wnen, after some remarks between the counsel, in relation to the mode by which the venue was chang ed from Richmond county, which it appeared was by writ of certiorari, Mr. Dk Witt tirquired of the Court what record was before it In relation to the prrsent trial ? Coi-RT.?I have nothing but a simple indictment for murder. Mr. Graham excepted, on the ground that the certiorari was granted by a District Judge. The CouitT over-ruled. Mr Clark , D. A., of Staten Island, with whom was associated Mr. Whiting, demanded that the jury panel should be called over, when thirty-four only wero called. She was here ordered to stand up, when Simon W Man, the first juror called, was (worn. Mr. De Witt challenged. Mr.Ci.akk demurred. Mr. Dk Witt ? Have you lormeJ an opinion on the subject of the alleged muider of Etnelino Houseman, by Mary Bodine 7 Juhor.? I have expressed an opinion. Mr. Dk Witt?What do you mean by saying you have expressed nn opinion ? Juror.?I recollect I had some conversation about it; but what it was, I can't say. Mr. De Witt.?I submit the challenge to the Court. Court.?I over-rule it. Mr. Graham?This point was decided before Judge Kent Coust?1 was not present, Mr. Graham. Mr. Graham.- It is a settled question that the ground of formation of opinion, is a ground cf challenge to the favor. We have a right of challenge to the array, and a right of peremptory challenge We mean to proceed in order, and olaim our right of'cballongo on the various grounds we feel authorized to found that right upon. Mr. Whiting replied In England the mode of testing this question, was as to whether the juror had formed an opinion not expressing an opinion. Mr. Graham?Our challenge for favor shall be for biai ?so let this be understood. [A jury of two lawyers were here sworn, ts decido the question, in relation to the challenge for fivor.J Mr. De Witt examined the juror. I have heard and read statements as to themurder of Mrs. Houseman. Mrs Bodine was implicated in the transaction that formed the subject cf these statements. 1 don't recollect these state meuts made any impression on my mind ; I have formed an opinion as to the prisoner's guilt; I think I am biassed. Crote-examined hy Mr. Clark.?Is that opinion favora able or unfavorable 1 Mr. De Witt ?It is an equal ground of objection, whether that opinion be favorable or unfavorable. Mr. Clabk contended they had a right to ascertain the opinion. Mr. De Witt?If favorable, it would give a right of | challenge to the prosecution; so, in either case, it would be wrong to atmit the question. To Mr. Whiting.?I tormed an opinion and thought the charge against the prisoner was true. The jury rendered a verdict, "We find the prisoner is hiated James Co well, called?set aside?challenge allowed on like ground. Samuel Lutton?set aside Oil liko grounds. D. P. Hunt, set aside on ground of ill health. Paviii Baaed, set aside, having formed an opinion. Mr. Whitish here rose rnd argued that a mere hypo thetical opinion did not disqualify from serving 1 Hejcited authority in support of his position, when he was replied to hy Mr De Witt. The Court ruled in favor of the position assumed by Mr. Whiting, namely, that a mere peiot, or idlo impres sion was not such as the law recognized as excluding a juror. It must be a fixed and decided opinion. Mr. DkWitt contended that the mere reading of a news paper statement did not disqualify. The Court ruled in favor of the prosecution. EVENING session.

Answered nltirmntively to the usual question, when it was reserved for the decision of the Jury to determine the question of admissibility. Mr.WiiiTiNo here addressed the two jururs sworn in on the tiiil, to whom was referred the power of deciding on the question in relation to " bias," and " formation of opinion," explaining the principles which should guide them in coming to a decision. Mr Graham replied contending that there was a settled principle of law set down which excluded irom the Jury box all persons who may entertain a bias of opinion not only in relation to civil cases, bnt it observed a jealous scrutiny in relation to the admission of party to the jury box in all such cases were the taking of human life wo* the penalty. Before newspapers had almost usurped the province-ul the jury box,this difficulty had not arisen, and as it was a settled principle that no person should ap proach the Jury box unless hit mind was like n sheet of blank paper any opinion which may he formed so ss to bias the mind was a sufficient ground for exclusion. The law was too jealous and subtle on the subject, and the case had been removed from the county where the case origi nated for the purpose of getting an impartial jury to try her, whose judgments may not be warped by impression! received on mere vsge rumor. Court, addressing the two juror*?There is nothing o( greater consequence, or that should be more cautiously guarded against than prejudice in the mind of a juror ? They should have a fixed and decided opinion a* to the rule that was to guide them in deciding upon the question which should come before them as to tho admission of a party to thejury box. The basis of formation of opinion founded upon mere rumor or newspaper statement, how ever, ought not to be relied upon by any sane minded man. But if a party ha* a settled opinion, no matter where de rived irom. ho lies no right to go into the jury box?that is, if he entertains such an opinion that would require some testimony or explanation to remove a decided im pression from his mind?he is not fit to go into a jury box. The formation of an opinion, no matter from what source derived, he cannot be considered an impartial juror. An opinion as to tin-guilt or innocence of the party, founded on mere newspaper riport was, it is true, a Riifflr.ient around for exclusion ; tut there was this additional ques on to he titken into considers'ion, did the party solely found his btlief on what ha had soen in the newspapers, and if so,ought this to be considered a proper basis for the formation of such an opinion ? The Jury hereupon decided adverse to the admission of Mr Ross, who was ret aGde. 31 Juror, James 8xdgederrt, sworn. Tho panel was exhauated.

It appeared in evidence that defen dant employed a Mr. Smith to procure a lean on certain property, aud the former not being able to effect tbii, con sidered the urgency of the case, and the instructions he bad roceived from defendant authorised him to employ plaintiff to assist him. He accordingly entered into an agreement with plaintiff, regulating the rate of his com pensation, if successful, which agreement Mr. Smith signed as the attorney of the defendant. Through the en deavors ol the plaintiff the loan was procured, and plain tiff now brings suit to recover compensation for effecting that loan.
