NKVV YOllK HERALD. New York, Tni?l?r, Mart-Ik 45, 1H45. The Aiill llriit Trials?Strength of U?inib llcall UuTcriiuicnt. The trial of "li:g Thunder" and his associate ami-reuters, now in progress at Hudson, in this Suu, is one ul tire moat important which bus ever tukeu I'laoe iu this country, in const queuce ol its involving the strength and force ot republican go vernment to preserve the civil relations of society involved in contracts concerning lands- We have despatched a reporter from this establishment, for tiie purpose of giving a full account of these trials ?a piece of newspaper enterprise winch no other journal in tins city has attempted. The prtlimiua ry proceedings closed last Saturday, resulting iu the selection of a jury, and the trial commenced yesterday, the proceedings of which will appear in this day's Evening Edition of the Herald, and to them we refer oar readers. We say these trials are important, and in every point of view they are deeply so, when viewed in their bearings on ihe permanence of democratic or republican institutions. It is generally rumored and believed by a great many, that the spirit ol the people in the insurrectionary districts, has been so demoralised by political agitators of all kinds, that "Big Thuuder," "Little Thunder," and all the "rtiuadero" ot the anti-renters, will escape by die disagreement of juries, if not by entire ac quittals. We do not know what probability there is ot such a result, but if an open violation ol the law?a resistance to the constituted authori ties, proved by c-loudsot witnesses, are thus to escape in consequence ol the peculiar feelings and sensi bilities of jurors, we may at once say there is an end to all the civil and moral institutions of republican government. We are on the verge of a dissolution ot the civil and political compact. There are six or seven counties in this state infected with the same priuciple of resistance to the laws, growing out ol the same condition of society as the events in Columbia county have recently developed.? It the jury should disagree, and allow those against whom the evidence is palpable and strong, to escape, there is no end to the progress of those disorganizing doctrines, and in fact ti e courts of law throughout the Slate may be as well shut up finally and tor ever. This is a lamentable condition of things. Jn Columbia county, in Delaware county, and in other counties,resistance is made by the occupiers of lands to the owners on a variety of grounds, and one of them springing from something like " na tiveism." And, again, the same spirit which is at the bottom ol this anti-rent movement, has a par tial consanguinity to the principles and the policy which have brought about repudiation in several of the States of this Union, and particularly the re cent Bankrupt Law, by which hundreds of millions of private debts were abolished without any re gard to honesty or integrity. We have, indeed, now reached a most important point in the progress of civil government and social institutions on de mocratic principles. Six or seven counties in this Stale are already infected with the disorganizing doctrines of the anti-renters, and if those who are proved beyond the possibility of a doubt to have been guilty ot resisting the law be permitted to escape, through the demoraliza tion ol the public mind operating on jurors, ail who own real estate in the cities or towns may prepare for the period when such a thing as rent will be repudiated altogether, and the occupiers of houses and lands will pretend to have as much right to them, without rent, as if thsv were the actual owners. It will be seen, therelore, that this trial is of the utmost importance, and we have accordingly felt it to be our duty, as a public journalist, to send a competent re|>ortcr to Hudson, lor the purpose ol giving a full account of the proceedings, in order to instruct and guide public opinion. The first day's proceedings will be found in this evening's Herald. Position of tub Texas Question?Its Proba bi.s Result.?la the present state of the Texai question, the only alternative now lelt is to nego tiate a treaty, and we see some intimations made in the administration papers that it is supposed commissioners will be immediately sent to meet others en the part of Texas. But a treaty for an nexation must be agreed upon by two-thirds of the Senate, and that the democratic party cannot hojo to command, unless a defection should take place in the whig ranks, which is very unlikely now. Unless there be a general concurrence on the part of the masses of the people of both parties, the ]>robability is that Texas never will be annexed. We are sorry?very sorry?sorry from the bottom of our heart, that we have lost Texas, and shall accordingly wear crape on the left arm for thirty days, and recommend to our friends, the democra cy, to do likewise. Taxes of thx City?Impudence Extraordi nary.?It is a singular fact, that several of the Wall ttreet journals are endeavoring to circulate a statement that the present corporation have re duced the expenses of the city, or, in other wordsi the taxation. A more impudent and alrociou* falsehood never was published. It will be at one seen by any reasonable men who will examine th affairs of the corporation, and who will only lool to their own pockets, that the taxes of the cit have been increased immensely during the lac year. We can speak for one. Our taxes are a least one third higher this year than they wen under any former corporation, and hundreds cai say the same thtug. Yet these new reformers witn their Wail street organs, have the efi'ronter] to endeavor to deceive and commit a fraud upor the community, by representing that the taxes have been reduced. A Question for Philosopher Greei.ky.?Will this learned Thebau?this profound philosopher? please to state whether " Bennett's Herald" has been purchased by the whig party for the spring election, and is now in the hands of a whig com mittee 1 We understand this " notorious print" is 1 now supporting the whig candidates lor the corpo' ration nt the next election. Will the philosopher reply to this peremptorily ? Last summer we un derstood (rom the same authority that the Herald was purchased by the locotoco committee. 01 course, if the whigs have purchased the assistance of that journal now, they must have paid the loco tocos a very handsome sum in order to get hold ol such a powerful instrument in the approaching election. Try Agmn.?The Courier pledges the support of the whig party to a treaty for the annexation ot Texas, provided President Polk should proceed to negotiate on such a subject. We very much doub* whether the Courier has in its breeches pocket the proxy of the whig party in as secure a position as it once had the $52,000 of the United States Bank We anticipate repudiation and the benefit of tht bankrupt act following such a promise on the part of the Courier in behalf of its party, according to all present appearances. What's the Matter t?The whole Wall street press are now endeavoring to throw cold water on Dudley Selden and the whigB. The Courier, E.r jirru, and Journal of Commerce, are all engaged in the same crusade. We rather think, however, that the reign of Wall street is nearly at a close for ever in the elections in New Yotk. This election will determine that. I'/ssenokrs for Kuropk. ? We understand thai tl-.e fine packet ship Stephen Whitney, Captair. Thompson, to sail on the 11th of May, for Livei ponl, has all but five of her berths already engaged. Packet Ship Henry Clay.?This new monster packet ship will be launched at 10 o'clock thi? morning, from the yard of Brown At Bell, at tin foot of Houston street. SANuuiRtco's Concert.?Kits eniert?inrr.pnt \v<mu oil admirably last evening, t New Ocean Packet Ships?The Stir Line of Liverpool Backets, of which Robert Kermil, Ksq ,is the agent in this city, has just built another splendid ship culled the Waterloo. She is com manded by Wm. H. Allen, Esq., who for many years was eaptnin of the old favorite Virginian. Tins Waterloo is really a magnificent ship. She being the last built, of course she has all the latest improvements in shipbuilding. Throughout every part she is perfect and complete. One thousand tons in bulk, one hundred and sixty feet in length, with tine promenade decks, she presents to the eye one of the finest specimens of naval architecture afloat. All the cabin arrangements of the Waterloo are not only superb, but they ate comtortable. They are chastely fitted up with mahogany panels and white enameled pilasters; high ceiling and rich settees; large stale rooms aud capacious berths; and tables to arranged that the passengers can either ail eat at one table, or they can form themselves into separate sets or messes. We saw with pleasure all these nice arrangements for the comfort of those who travel over the ocean. These fiae cabins lorm only one of the charac teristics of the Waterloo. She has many?she is as complete in her arrangements lor the steerage pas sengers. They have the roomiest quarters of any ship that wc have seen. Airy, high, wide, and clean is their cabin. So are the quarters tor the sailors : they will have a tine library, which has been presented to the ship ; a stove to keep them warm ; and places to stow away their clothes from the reach of the sea. This strong and powerful ship ought to be seen by every one. She is now open for visitors, and ladies and gentlemen are welcome to her cabinft and to her decks. She lays at the foot of Maiden Lane, and will remain in port 'till the 11th of next month. The Streets.?The condition of the streets is horrible beyond description. Piles ot filth are to be seen every where?when it rains the crossings are impassable; and when it is dry, the clouds of dust fill the stores, penetrate into every house, and almost suffocate those who are unfortunately obliged to go out of doors. Is this awful state of things never to end 1 Prison Reform.?The remarks of Judge Ed monds, in his charge to the grand jury of the coun ty, before the Court of Oyer and Terminer, in re lation to the abuses that exist in the public prisons, will betound ot the deepest importance. We give a full report. Daniel. Webster at the Cattle Market.? The Hon. Daniel Webster yesterday visited the cattle market at BuII'b Head, to inspect a few fine cattle that had arrived there trom Virginia, and a remarkably good looking heifer from Cheuango county, in this State. He prsnounced them to be superior animals?equal to any he had ever seen, and he has met with " much cattle" in his day. Musical Items.?We understand that De Begnis has been offered very munificent terms to accom pany the Borghese troupe? now at New Orleans? to Mexico. They intend, it seems, to proceed immediately to Vera Cruz and Mexico, and to per form there during the next four months. If they should do so, it would break up the arrangements j which have been in progress here for the resuscita tion of the opera in New York, by combining Val- j tellina, AntogBini, Sanquirico and Madame Pico, in one troupe. We are really afraid that, alter all, the efforts to establish the opera in this city will turn out quite abortive. The "Wardens" open to-night at the Society Library. Their talents as vocalists have been spo ken ot in the highest terms. Mr. G. Vandknhoff's Lecture this evening, before the Mercantile Library Association and the public, at the Clinton Hall, is a repetition, by the request of several families, of a lecture recently de livered with great success at the Society Library. Its subject is both interesting and instructive. Important Lectures on Gas,tec.?Lastevening, Colton, the new philosopher, gave a lecture on ex hilirating gas, at Clinton Hall. It was rather thinly attended. Lastevening one "Dr. Griscom" gave a lecture on air and ventilation at the same place, which was also thinly attended. This may be called lecture No. 2 on gas. Last evening, also, at the Stuyvesant Institute, Mr. Hudson gave a lecture on Sh&kspeare, as usual. This may be called lecture no 3 on gas. " The Irish in America " A lecture on this subject is to be delivered at Niblo's this evening, by Mr. Major.) Accident to the Columbia.?There was a re port yesterday of a serious explosion on board the steamer Columbia. We are glad to hear, how ever, that only a trifling accident happened to her, not serious enough to interfere with her regular daily trip. Summer Retreat ?Amongst the changes in the fashionable watering places,we find that Biancard, of the Globe Hotel, has purchased the Pavilion at New Brighton, for $3,600, and intends to fit it up in magnificent style, with nice baths and all that.

The Mormons.?We learn from Hancock county Illinois, that considerable apprehension exists ol further difficulties with the Mormons. It sppcar* that the Sheriff uf the county on last Friday evening arrested st a ball an individual named Elliott, who had been taken up and tried at Nauvoo p short time since charged with being concerned in the murder of the Smith's, but had escaped irom bis custody before committing him to prison. Elliott has made an application for a writ ol habeaa corpus, and it Is supposed he will be liheratrd. Two individuals were arrested In IVauvoo a few days ago?one lor perjury in the case of Elliott, and the other | upon a requisition of the Governor ot Iowa?both ol whom wete rescued from the handa of the officers in Nauvoo. These two casea have combined to create seme had feeiing, and many suppose it may lead to the enact ment of the scenes of fast summer.?St. Louie Rev., March 14.

Time* Mir'K i Nbw Comedy AT tub Park Last Night ? I i he much talked-of new comedy, " Fashion," f"yMrs. Mowatt, was produced at the Park last uight. It was one of the best Ileuses we have ever wn. Boxes, pit, and galleries were crowded. All 'he hteiati of the city were there, with a toler able sprinkling of the ilitc, and the greatest curi oisity and excitement appealed to prevail through out the house, relative to the probable success or failure of this first attempt to exhibit on the Ameri can stage a picture of American society and man ners. After the orchestra had played an overture, ac companied by the animated buzz of conversation, which was heard all over the house, the curtain was drawn up, and then Mr. Crist, entered, read ing a newspaper, and spoke the f ollowtug Prologue. " Fashion, a Comedy ? I'll go? but stay 1 read farther, 'di a native play ! Bah . home-made calicoes are well enough But home-made Dramas must be stupid stun ?

Mrs. Tiffany (Mrs. Barry) herself then enters, dressed in the extreme of fashion, and receives in ner turn some lessons in "fashionable French." ane asks the French for arm-chair, and on being told it, exclaims?

B "Mrs. Tiffiny" then discovers that' "Zeke" the name of the new footman, is i" decidedly vul gar," and on the suggestion of "Millinette/' it is changed to "Adolphe." "Prudence," (Mrs. Knight) a country maiden, on the wrong side o! thirty, and who has obstinately refused to follow the lead of her relative, Mrs. Tiffany, in fashion, then enters, and after surveying the splendid apart ment, exclaims? 1 How very spruce we do look !

Mrs. Tiffany.?I beg that you will always remember that we are of the " upper ten thousand," and that these allusions to the past are decidedly vulgar. (Laughter.) "Count de Jolimaitre," (Crisp,) ia then announ ced, and on his appearance,is received with a pro fusion of smiles by Mrs. Tiffany. He has just iri w V"/ h5r <Whter. "Seraphi n' .l *V>rn,i) that he Waa "well known at all the courts (police courts) of Europe," when Mr. Trueman," (Chippendale,) a blunt, honest armer, from Cataraugus county, is announced, to the horror of Mrs. Tiffany, and the annoyance of the Count. Mr. Trueman regards the Count with a good deal of suspicion, and asks, "Do you call that fellow, with a shoe-brush across his mouth, a counu This provokes some impertinences on the part of that personage, which'he honest farmer is about to chastise by soundly flogging the Connt, when Mrs. liffany affects to faint away?"Milli nette rushes into the room with & glsss of wdter and a recognition takes place between her and the Uount, which the latter manages to conceal?and here the first act closes. . The second act owns with a scene in the count ?M?TeKf ?'Mr T.ffany" (Barry). H.s clerk, Mr. Snobson, (Fisher) threatens to make cer tain disclosures unless Mr. Tiffany consents to his becoming hu son-in law, and finally he ia invited by Mr. Tiffany to the grand ball which Mrs. Tiffa ny is to give in a day or two. Mr. Trueman then enters and salutes Mr. Tiffany, telling him that he had been told that he was "making money on the regular American high-pressure principle," but adding his opinion, that :t was " better to en slower lest he might burst his boiler." Mr. Tiffany re plies, that although he was " perfectly solvent yet he was desirous to obtain the assistance of his old friend, fne scene then changes to the " con servatory," where "Gertrude," (Miss Ellis) a poor orphan, visiting in the family of the TifUnys, i? watering the flowers. Tn? "Count" makes his and treat" her w,th &reat insolence, fid irueman comes to the protection of Gertrude, and drives off the " Count." ' The opening scene in the third act is a view cf the Battery?"Colonel Howard" (Dyott ) "Mr and "Mr- T- Tennison Twinkle (De Waldes,) a poet who has written a sonnet to Seraphina in Graham's Magazine, make their appearance. The Colonel is in love with Gertrude, but cannot think of marrying her, for he has lost his fortune by endorsing notes for a friend He goes off very melancholy, and Twinkle,after in vain trying to get a listener to his "sonnet," makes a very speedy exit on perceiving the approach of "Davis the militia fine collector." The scene again changes to the drawing-room, where there is an interesting tete-a-tete between Mr. and Mrs. 1 litany. Mr. T? It will ruin me? Mrs. T.?There is a certain degree of display which a woman of fsibion? Mr 7\?Who made you a woman of faihion 7 For fuhion'a take you run me into debt at every opportunity.

Gertrude then overhears a conversation between the Count and Millin-tte, and thus discovers that the former is a grots imposter. The fourth act opens with the "grand ball" and the " Polka" by the characters. After the com pany have gone to supper, Gertrude, by meana ot "Adolphe," obtains an interview with the Count, and by personating Millinette obtains from him aa account ot (he infamous manner in which he intends to effect his scheme tor eloping wiih Seraphina. In the midst of this interview, how ever, which takes place in a dark ante-room, Ger trude and the Count are interrupted by Pru dence. who had overheard die former instructing Adolphe how to bring the latter Irom the supper table, and who is accompanied by Mr. Tiffany, Mr. Trueman, Col. Howard, and others of the company. The Count escapes to a closet, but is teon discovered by Prudence, and poor Gertrude is overwhelmed with confusion and regarded with suspicion by all, as the Count asserts that sho had sought the interview. In the Inst act the lull denouement of course takes place,?Mr. Trueman finds that Gertrude has been most unjustly suspected, and becomes fully^ no quainted with th be imposture of the Count. IntH ligence is then brought that Ssr.iphtna has eloped with the Count. Mr. Tiffany sinks overpowered, unci } nohson at that moment enters and denouncer in as a. "forger" Oil Trueman quietly gels Snobeon to confess that he was himaelf an acces sary, and of course his silence is secured. Milli nette makes a lull contesiion of the Count's :md her own decept ona, and informa Mra Tiffany, lo lier inexpressible horror, that her darling Count whs nothing more nor less than a " head-cook," and afterwards a valet in Paria. Old Truemau avows liunseU the grand lather of Gertrude, who had lu miancy been be reaved of her parents, aud who had been brought ipby distunt relatives ut Geneva, nud restores hei willing hand upon Colonel Howard. Seraphtua, warned in time by Gertrude, does not eio|>e, aud he Count finally makes ofl with Wliiltnette Mr. Tiflaiiy acts ou the advice of old Truernan, and resolves to sell his house und furniture, and live within hia means in future- Mrs. Tiffany par tially recovets from her dream of " lashion, and the comedy closes with the following jSriLOoux.

Such is the outline of this comedy. It whs re ceived last night with the greatest favor, and was announced tor repetition this evening amid loud applause. It has been put upou the stage in a really superb manner, and the various characters were sustained in a manner highly creditable. Thus far it may be said that "Fashion" has been quite suc cessful, but whether it will have a long or a short run is yet to be seen. We have no doubt, how ever, that it possible the Park will be still more crowded to-nigkt than it was last night; and from the peculiar cnaracter of the comedy, we expect some very singular developments amongst the play-going people of this city. City Intelligence. Dreadful Accident i* Charlton Street?Exvlosion of a Bomh Shell?Five Lives Loit.?One of the most deplorable accidents that has occurred in this city lor s long time, happened j csterday afternoon about 6 o'clock, by which in nn instant Ave human beings were deprived of life?cut off without a single moment of preparation from the paths of health and busy life?in all the vigor of youth and manhood, leaving many relatives and lriends to deplore their untimely end. The circumstances ot this fatal atfair, as near as the Reporter was enabled to procure them from the spot lest evening, are simply these About A o'clock yesterday afternoon Mr. Edward Duvall, house smith and founcer, oi No. 101 Charlton street, was engaged on tho walk in front of his shop, in getting out the contents of some bomb shells which no had procured from a small sloop lying at Washington msikst, for the purpose of melting down. He had got out the plug or screw from the shell, and had poured out about a pint ot the combustible matter. He then inserted a stick, (it is said, but it was probably a rod of iron,) with which he was endeavoring to dig out the combustible matter While (has engaged the shell exploded, and thefrBgments of the shell flew in every direction. Mr Duvall was hilled instantly, and was mangled und torn in the most

shacking manner- Mr. Aaron O Price, mason, of No. 79 Thompson street, had just driven up with his cart, and jumped off when the explosiou took place, and a fragment of the shell striking the back pert of his head, clove the skull and dashed out his brains, killing him instantly His horse was also killed. Richard Broderick, a lad about Ifljyears of age, residing at the corner of King and Hudson streets, who was passing at the time, was also in stantly killed, and a boy named Bennett, of the same ege. who resides in Hudson street, between Hammersly and Kin? Another person, whore name was not known, was wounded, und after going to his residence is said to have died. The windows of several of the houses opposite were broken by the explosion, and nieces of the shell thrown in. Before tome of the windows, portions of blood and brains ware thrown and remained there. The greatest excitement prevailed in the neighborhood trom the time of the accident until a late hour in the evening, and the street was completely thronged with men, women and children, all discussing the dreadful afTuir. Mr. Duvall has lett a wife and child, nnd Mr. Price has a large family of children. The Coroner was summoned to hold in ir queet upou the deceased, and as soon as he received th< informatin he repaired to the spot, hut thinking it inad visable to hold an inquest last night, he had the bodies re moved te their several homes, and will hold inquests upon them this morning. Police Office, March 21.?Charge or Iivcest.?A young woman of very respectable appearance appeared at ons ?( the Watch Houses last night, and stated that she was with child by her own father?he having had inces tuous and illicit In'ercourse with her about three months since. The female gave her name as Mary Newbown, and stated that she lived in Ludlow street. At the dis charge of the watch. Justice Drinker beard her story und sent her up into the female apartment, intending to iavei tigate the matter. Thefstherhas not been arrested, nor has the girl's affidavit been taken, but the matter will pro bably be attended to to-day. Charuk of Infanticide.?Information was given to Alderman Baylis tbis morning by Mr. Millbanks, of No. 173 Madison street, that a child had been discovered in the privy attached to his premises, and that from suspi cious behaviour of a servant named Rosanna Kelly, who had been living in his employ three weeks and left sud denly on Wednesday or Thursday last, he believed her guilty of the act, Alderman Baylis applied to Justice Drinker tbis morning, and ho .dispatched otttcer Mil likin to attend to the case ? arrest the girl, and take ild care ot the child. Millikin hud the child taken from the privy and conveyed to the dead houae in the Park, and arrested the woman. She is 22 years of age and very good looking. She confesses that she is the mother of the child, but declares that it was born dead; and if so. of course there is nothing to sustain the charge The Coroner did not hold an inquest to-day, but will pro bably to-morrow, and have a post moitem examination made, when it can be ascertained whether the child was horn alive or dead. Meantime Rosanna remains in prison to nwait the result. Father aqaimt Son?Dreadful Chariie?On Satur day, it will be recollected, John F. Kelly, publisher oftbe " Court Journal or Life in New York," was arrested nn complaint of Dr. Solomon Heine of tbis city, lor publish ing a libellous article, charging the doctor with having obtained the body ot his own son from Sing Sing Prison, where he had died a convict, and dissected him in bis of fice, in the dead hour of the nigbt, and alter having pre pared the skeleton hung it up in the office. It now appears by the affidavit of a bey named William E Jacobs, ssn of Mr. Jacobs of the City Watch, that Dr. Joseph Heine, the son ef Dr. Solomon Heine, was the au thor of the article, and sent it to the publication office of the above named print by Jacobs. Dr. Joseph was arrest ed by officer William H Stephens, and held to bail to an swer. It the esse ever comes to trial it will present some singular features, but probably the matter will not go any further. In such s case as this, however, the matter should not tic permitted te drop till a thorough Investiga tion is made. Coroner's Office?March 24.?Fatal Accident.? The Coroner held an inquest this morning at Bellevue Hospital, upon the body ot Tatrick Devlin, about 4o years of age, who died on Friday night trom the < fleets of a fall at the Third District Watch-house on the night of the 9ib inst. Devlin had been brought in in a state of intoxica tion, and a watchman was tiking him down stairs when he stepped out too lar aud fell?the watchman being ob liged to let go lor fear of being dragged down himself, as there is no baonister to the stairway and nothing for him to catch hold of. Perhaps the committee on public build ings sad repairs will hsve the evil remedied to prevent such accidents in future. The coroner's jury lound that Devlin came to his death from the injuries received by the fall. Clrealt Court. Before Judge Kdmnndi. March Q4?Trial of Polly Hodine for Murder.?At early 8 o'clock, (he avenue leading to thia Court con tained grotipi of per?on?, amongst whom were several females, who seated themselves on either aide the passage in order to obtain a view of the prisoner on her way 10 court. The avenues gradually began to All up, with r noisy, boisterous crowd, who kept shouting loudly until the hour lor opening the court had arrived, and rendered it difficult for the Judge, Jurors,and officers of theoourt, to make their way to the court room. The noise and boisterous shouting kept up by them obliged the officers to clear the passage, a work which caused considerable difficulty and delay?when a long table was placed cross wise, and the officers stationed themselves at the inner side with their long staff's, which were kept in constant requisition. The crowd pressed forward to the table? the officers used their staffs with rigor?when a regular shouting and hissing was kept up tor some time. The vanguard of the monocracy pitched some of their forces across the enemy's lines, when immediately the officers laid en them, and after inflicting a severe navigation upon them, pitched them hack pgain over the lim a, it was a re gular skirmish whilst it lasted?a sort ol siege?and had u ludicroua effect to the cool looker- in. Several ladies? spectators arrived up tn 10 o'clock, and took their places within the bar. There was considerable shout ing kept up by the noisy crowd, who could not ob taiu admission when the court was opened. There was an isnmenae ruth frr places when the doors were thrown open,and the prisoner, alter some delay, wailed to the place assigned her, accompanied by her mother and daughter. The greitest nnxie.y was manifested as she proceeded to her place. When the court was organised, the following )ury, already sworn, took their pieces William Lint/., grocer, foreman; Kami. L. DanAeld, ma son; James Kadghury, brewer; Abraham B. Skillmnn, hardware; Hubbard <1. Stone, watchmaker; William Pyle; Myron H. Craft, grocer; Teter K Coon, baker; Win. Houtherland, Jr.; John Wilcox, watchmaker; John McColgan; James M l ice, halter. Mr. Clark hero applied to the court to direct the jury to view tltn premises, a course which was allowed at the 1 ist trial, when it was arranged that in the event of Mich a course being uoceasary, they could do so niter the trial Mr Ci.ark hereupon opened tho case The prisoner stood indicted for willui murder, nud her case had ulrcaj dy been tried before tho court of Richmond county, ond the jury npou the Arst occasion, could not agree, when a second jury could not be found, and therefore the venun was changed to thia county. The crimo of which the prisoner stati Is charge 1, was one of the most revolting that was found in the blank catalogue, and the c.ircum s'anoe* connected with it are such as have scarcely a piratic1 in the annals of crime, and when they con si leted that tho prisoner was a tehtive of the da. c?is l, it would ho received as n deep aggravation.

(the first witness sworn)?examined by Mr. Clahx.?I reside at Staten Island I am a car P enter by trade. I reside about oue mile and a half from otl Richmond, on tho Isimd?about five milea from the house 01 Mr. Houseman- I was a |that house on the even ing of Chrntmas day, 1843; on ray way home from Port Richmond, i saw a light,and when I got nearer I saw that it was Mr. Houseman's house that was on fire. When I got near the house there was a woman coming from the house?she took some water?1 think her name wss Sarah Selsman. There were several women there draw ing water. I went into the house and went up stairs, and there found the body of a grown person?1 saw taken out what I supposed waa the other body. The body was much charred?end the head was burned up. There was a hois under the bed burned through the floor?the hole was burned through martlie head?the bed wss placed pretty near north and south?the bed stood closetu a ear ner. The hole that was burned through the floor was mar the head oi the bed. A map of the premises was here put in, describing the location oi the bed and room where the body wis found. It was shown to 'he jury, who,deeming it more satisfactory to have an oppoitunity of personally inspecting the pre mises, Ihe Court adjourned for the purpose, when the Judge and all proceeded to Staten Island. Evening Session. The court and jury met at 7 o'clock, after haviog been occupied for nearly six hours in inspecting the scene of the murder at Staten Island. It being the intention oi the court to sit from half past 10 o'clock, and not later than 8 o'clock, the court suggested, that as they had bat so short a time remainiog before the honr of adjourn ment, it was as well to a<ljourn. The court was accordingly adjourned over to the usual hourthis forenoon, when the trial will be resumed. Court of Oyer and Terminer. Before Judge Edmonds und Aldermen Winship and Dickinson. March 34 ?This Court was opened at the usual hour, when the following Grand Jury w ere swern :?R chard J. Smith, Foreman ; Joseph N. Barnes, Wm. J. Beekman, Robert Buchan, John C.Coachmon, James Coddington, AbijahT. Feeks, T. R. Gerry, John Gary, Michael Gafl", ney, Roderick Lawrence, OJell Lockwood, James T. Utter, Edward Ferris, James Southard, Richard Warren, Henry E Hayt, Isaac V. Briggs, Wm. T.Oakley. The Prison Abuses?Common Council.?The Court, on the jury being sworn, called the attention of the Grand Jury to present abuses which exist in the dis cipline in relation to the prisons of the city.? Tney were bound by their oaths to discharge their duties withi ut fear, favor, or affection. He directed their attention to the state of crime, and the extraordinary num ber of capital cases which were to be found on the calen dar?having no less than four murder cases. This dis played a state of morals which made it imperative on them seriously to consider, and carefully to regard this state ol things. But, in addition, the retuins from " Sing Sing," showed the fearful magnitude of crime in this city, which, when compared with the State gent rally, exhibited the fearful state of the morals in the community ol the city of New York. There were at Sing Sing no less than?males 433?fe males 31, and out of this number there were from the city of New York alone?males 180 ; females 13. In the citv prison, there were |oo less than-males 893 ; fe males 864; and in the penitentary at Blackwell's Island, there were?males 1,135; females 630. These statistics showed a fearful state ol ihe morals of this city, and that there was a great growing evil existing in their very midst, reflecting on the morals of the coun try. The crime oi the 8 ate of New York, compared with that oi England, showed a great preponderance on the part of the latter country?being four times as large on the part of England ; but, when p.'acod in compirison with the citjr of NewYork.it is almost as great on the pat t of tho city ol New York. These were considera tions which pressed home on all w ho value the well be ing oi society, and|it remained then to inquire into the esse and see it they could find a reirely Now what is the cause of this ststo of things 7 1 believe it arises from the fact, that the public prisons established in onrcity are schools for crime, instead of being places calculated to abate the evils which they are designed to correct. I make this bold broad assertion in relation to your city p ison and other prisons, that to all intents and purposes they are schools lor crime, because facts warrant the as sertion. There are in the city prison clone, for offences to the person, no less than Males Females 16-j These are for what I would call the outrageous violation of law, breaches of the peace, violation ol older, robbe ry?persons who, in defiance of the settled laws of the community, take law into their own bands. Tbii shows a vast proportion of crime, and It should be takeu into serious consideration whether this state of things ought be allowed. In examining the repoit, I find, too. one ex traordinary fact, which shows the extent to which these prison abuses have gone. A boy who had been lost, has been kept confine! since December ; so we aro picentf d with the extraordinary fact of a lost boy being left hoard ing with felons. Gentlemen, ought this state of things be allowed in a civilized community ? I ask you as pa rents, as friends.if this is to be tolerated 7 There appeals to be much difficulty, too, in the erganization ; for the intercourse net ween the prisoners is unrestiained?they are allowed to wander, and their evil passions seem to be kept under no restraint. Now if this is the , 11 n ma*,er which should be remedied. There is|a difficulty as regards the chief officer of tho prison, in whose good conduct I have every confidence He gets his appointment from tho Common Council, but he has no power of government over the subordinate officers of the prison. This arise- Irom Ihe fact of their being ap pointed by another brruch, who have authority, and thus there it a radical defect in the system, which is perfectly manliest. In the female department, the lemale prisoners are placed under the control of matrons of high moral reputation; but in the male part of the prison, the abuses that exist are so glaring that when an officer who was sworn at a public trial, where a man was tried for forgery, be testified, I understand, that he spent one of his evenings revelling with a convicted pirate, on ovsters and rum. 1 would ask you, then, gentlemen, when such a state of things are sworn to by a public offi cer, before a court of justice, ought they be allowed to exist! Are they not radically wrong! Do they not re quire some strong, some effectual remedy to pitta check to them I 1 speak of it as a matter of great evil, and it is my doty to caU your attention toil. From my personal ex perience, 1 am enabled to suggest a remedy. Out ol the 1135 prisoners confined at Blackwell's Island, there were what are called? Coubt Prisoners. Males..,,,.,,, ,,,,,, ,JiS Females Police Court Prisoners. Males Females ^03 I have, in addition, the report of a Society, signed by aix gentlemen, who have associated (or the purpoie ??( effecting some relorm in priaon diacipline, taken in Fe bruary laat. They report in February lasv there were in 'he priaon on Blackwell's Inland 1386 ?prisoneri, and onl of theae a vast proportion had got in for the purpoie oi getting rid of a loathsome disease. These number of pri aonera had an accommodation of only 406 cells, aome h by 4, containing one bunk, on which two prlaoncrs each slept?the feet of one near the bend of the other. There was noclaaaiflcation,and it was a lingular fact, a ma'ter of surprise, that there was no matron or nurse. The hoi pitai contained 333 invalids, who were visited once or twice a week by gome tyros of tha profession. Religious teaching appeared to be rather carefully attended to, as there waa a good supply of bihlea ; but ordinary educa tion appeared to be totally neglected The Report ?ct out these facta. Gentlemen, I have before me communicationa from othera who are philanthropists, and take a deep interest in the reformation of these crying grievances. Now what ia the remedy 7 I will tell yon what you can do. Theie are three different modes by which you can remedy the abuse. Yon may prefer an indictment ogainst the Common Council or the Commis sioners of tbo Alms House, or the Officers. If ao, I trust you will discharge your duty with Armnesa in compli ance with the terms of your oaths; for, gentlemen, you will bear in mind, that you pursue your line oi duty in this respect, and go not against men but againat the sys tem which has prevailed; and let the administration of the law, the only remedy, abate an evil which all must deplore. It is not necessary to doubt such a mea sure, and you must make such a representation as will enable you to effect inch a desirable change. You can recommend various measures to bring about this relorm?I mvself would suggest one or two. There ought to be a system of periodical inspec tion, by which m?n could go into tecse prisons and examine them carefully and well. Plenty of eurh men Could he foUDd, who would h- most willing to art without fee or reward-for wo have many pure-minded philanthropists amongst us, who would willingly serve on such a duty. I well know that those public, officers who are clothed with arbitrary power, often In the dis charge of olticial duty when in charge of a prianr, abuse that power, and thrreought tobn a remedy which inqui y would at or.ee suggest But there is another remedy that should be applied?a remedy that would at once strike at the root of evil?and that remedy is, gi ntle-nm. to dis connect the management of your public prisons wi h the pat ty politics of the day?to detach the m from the blasting influerceot party. They have been f>r years the place of party, and the discipline and abuse have changed with ev.ry change of party. This, gentlemen, Is the manner in whicli the public prisons have been conduc'ed Look to your private charities?the last consideru tion is that of any ah istg amongst the hosp.tals and other departments that am supported by pii vate charities. Now, it cannot ho that these great institutions, in which the well being of the Statu is involved will beullowtd to continue in so deplorable a condition-anil I c-ill your attention to these matters, g'n'lemen. so that if you find by your investigation the abuses which I have pointed out do exist, j on will adopt such measures as will remedy them In the discharge o' your public duties, under iho solomn oaths yon have taken, you owe it to the people?you owe it to vour COUOtrv?yon owe it to your God-to discharge those duties firmly and faithfully. mil to deci le whether or no thou-evils, which prevail to so alarming an extent, shall aiiv longer continue. I apprehend, gentlemen, that you will not he wanting to duty on this important matter, and I call your attention to it?aa the first Grand Jary 1 have addressed?ai my peisonal experience has eoable<l me ti> acquire much information on the subject ol priaon discipline.

The European advice* received per the ateamahip Cambria, are, without doubt, in a commercial view very important and highly encouraging to many iu tereata in the Unitea States, but we do not look upon the account*, or rather the abaence of account* in relation to the Texas and Oregon question*, as being indicative of much good. The Hidden change in the public policy of the Government of Great Britain in relation to these <1 is puted territories, aud the silence of the ministry since the meeting of Perliament upon the aubj'Ct, i* construed by mauy here, as veiy yortentuous and fraught with much danger. Previous to the depititure ol the Hibernia from Liverpool on the 4'h of February, n. gocistions were pending between tlie Government oi Great Britain aud that of France to bring about a co-op jrstioo, for the purpose ot issuing a protest in tho name of the principal powers of Europe, protesting asainst the annexation ol Texaa to the Uimed Starrs The next steamer, the packet of the 4th of March?Cambria?brings no intelligence whatever upon the subject,and the public mind on this eide is therefore psitielly quieted. We cannot think that niter the movements made by the Government of Great Britain about ihis atfair that the thing is not to be abandoned in thia way, that alter ail the negociation* with other powers; alter all the excitement created throughout Europe upon the question, we r.nnuot believe that a government like that of Great Britain, ia going to give up the thing, as peaceably a* the silence might induce many to hope. The Texas question is not yet settled. Tne rerolution* which p issed noth houses of Congress, will not briog tho nutter to a crisis. The terms proposed by these resolu tions, havo not and possibly may not be accepted by the Government of Texas. The arrangement of the prelimi naries must occupy some time,and until they are settled, annexation is p* far off os ever.
