District Aitoruiy Millie arose to open the case for the prosecution Ha said that ho much regretted the necessi ty t listed for tryirgtho prisoner in the county ol Columbia, o " _ on m.h a grave and solemn charge. Although tiny (the jury) were somewhat nware ol the nature of the cise, he thought it adviaablo to advert to some of its features. After reading the cIjusqs of the atatuto from the Revised Statutes applying to the case, he commented upon its ex-ret bearing, and the nature of the ott'ecce. It made no difference whether the crime of robbery was com mitted i>y the open highwayman,at the hour of midnight, or was perpetrated in open day: whether by absclut-' force or compulsive threats : These are a class of cases to which the taw applies the term of robbery, on which injury to the person was not necessary to constitute them, and in order to appreciate propurfy the nature of the present charge, ha would quote from Russell, pp. 66 and 66, to show that acts oi violence were not rtquisite to subatantiatea charge of robbery; nor was it necessary thrt even fear ot personal violence should bo proved, at the law would presume the existence ?f fear In the appropriation ot property. Ha read fmta p 73 some instances in illustration, from Which it appeared that a re quest on the part of one of a mob to get money, wis held to be robbery; also, irom page seventy-four a case which occurred at Birmingham, in England, when a Mr. Grundy wss applied to tor money, by one of a mob accompanied with the threat ol damage to his house il it was not complied with. Mr Grundy, to avoid the appre hended danger gave them nine and a half guineas, not, aa he aaid afterward? upon evidence, through (ear of (lar ger to himself, but of injury to his house and propei tv ai a future time, lu this case the prisoner was convicted of robbery. This case, be (the District Attorney) thought apn icable,bu'far|shnrt of the gravity of the present charge for there was ni disguising, no deadly weapons used, while in the p'esrnt there were both, not to destroy ptc perty, but to take hie if necessary, and deter the it gal of ficers with threats of a flagrant character. In the cases c ted private individuals Were assailed- in the present the representative of that majestyot the law, which legislative wisdom bad enacted to secure the rights of person and property sacredly These remarks wore made trom a cor vicrion of the importance of their understanding the na ture of th* lsw in the case. The prisoner stands charged in the indictmen' with taking the property|of the Sheriff consisting of three distress warrants and one declaration on tire subject. For some weeks prior to the commission of the offences, considerable excitement prevailed in Co lumbia, on what It called anti-reutism?not caused by citi zens of the county, but by others who were strangers to and havtpg no connection nor affinities with it. Sim lar excitement h*d prevail*din other counties, but although ibis was'the case to an alarming extent, Columbia was ca'm and quiet aa th> (mountain lake, until invaded by *h* Indians ot Rennsalearcounty; and be ta d it with pride as a citizen ol Colombia, that there was none in the State of New Tork nor in the Union which presented a case ol grester absence of crime and o If once; and of the crime committed in it lut had been committed in the southern part until pievious to the cause spoken of. Shortly after the last fall election, the efforts of those who had been industriously engiged in foioon ing listurbauce, began to show their effects; the flams burs' forth, and quiet and uuctf.-ndr g men were induced, by either the eloquence, or tbre its of the prisoner and his ??? aocittes, to firget their allegianco to the lsw, and act in hostility to We peace of this hitherto trsnquil commu-ity Meeting! w- re held?arms bought up?funds cHec'ed ?nd dangerous combinations were iff cted, until, at last, such crimes as tho present were perpetrated, and the lib or an Innocent and uuc ffanding citizen waa taken. In re gaid to'his particular ciia'-gn against the prisoner at thr bar:?O j the llth December lost, H C Miller hid in hie . possession certain official papers, as Sheriff of the County of Columbia ; one was a distress warrant on a contract entered into for lan I lor one year; the deputy Sheriff had tistraiue l and given notice of salo to take place on the J lib, according to law ; anchor was a distress .warrant >giijst Stephen Decker to be exncu'ed the same day; and a third upon a ess ? of the same natu'e against Coonradt Vrahnrgh, to sell under which he repaired to Copake. on th? morning na ned. When within half a mde of Cop,ike, h ( passe d a man whom he knew, who, turning back, they proceeded to the flats together, and f >und a large numhei of t rated and disguised men, whose appearance, merely, waa ca'oulated to excite alarm Seme were not armed, in>l were known to him; hut. at all events, there w as a featful array of men assembled for no good purpose. In this land of law and liberty, if grievances are to be re tressed, it is not by disgniie and uoncealmtn'; for, in this hapoy country, it was their glory and happiness to sup par. their laws and inatitu'ions. in the light?in the lac. of the civilized world. No circumstances, then, could jtrnif/ such a hostile array. He noticed amone he crowd Walter Shaver, one of his deputiei. with vhom he spoke, in order to advise him, and ascertain he objects of the assembly. Aft r going into a room, eight disguised individuals followed; drawing h 'ir swords and cocking their pistols at the or-mmaud *1 the personage called Big Thunder, who demanded if the - Sheriff cf Columbia was there,and aske what was his in tended course ou that occasion. Every act of these armed men showed that ther were resolved to prevent ihe sale that day The 8herilf was informed, if he went down te the place of sale he must go under an Kcort ot the Indians ; and accordingly, against his will, they sur rounded his carriage and escorted him with music. On at'emptingto ? fleet the aale. alter arriving at Votbifgh's they prevented him to tell; the same occurred at Deck er's. He suppo td then, he would he permitted to depart in peace, hut such waa not the case ; that criminal-as he hoped to prove him?the prisoner, with a drawn pistol w hit hand, presented it at the Sheriff, who declared he wf? not prepared to give hi* papera, and would do no only from fear of personal violence. Big Thunder *aid, he would *oon latiafy liim-tok the vote, reclaiming 1 pale face*, what say you " He would a*k the jury, il one of them were aiiuetrd a* the Hheriir, aurrounded by a pack of armed de-peradoea?threatened with blood and violence, would they act differently ? Rather than submit to perional injury he thought proper to deliver them. Suppose he bad reaiated th m at all consequences, and that in the struggle he died loat his lifo, how many in this community, respectable citisens (here present merely for curiosity, would have lorteite.l heir live* as acceatoriea in ? murder? In the ordinary nature of things such an event might have t-ken pl?co ind caused a universal gloom in the County of Columbia. It wa*. ha eante ded, a cause of gratification that lh> Sheriff acted a* he did. The papera were delivered, and he marched hack to Cop' kn T?? a request to be left by himself, they replied by burning the papera publicly with manifestation* of applause by the assembled mob The evid >nce of l*-orge Shaver, who rode down with the Sheriff, would describe what be witnessed on that occa ? inn. It could not be denied that there was resistance to a public nffi '? r, and sya'ematic oppisi'ion to tha law. Ap plv ing the law, aa developed In the cases read, what doubt could theie be that these transactions were to creite fear nnd alarm ? Talk of the mobs of England?ot Birmingham-ot London .' but what were they in form id ablenesa to this moh of disguised, armed, and recited In diana? In reference to the defence, he thought it right to tnlnrm them that (ffjrt* would be made to show the Sheriff gave his papers voluntarily ; hut he defied them in the face of the evi lerce - in contemplation of their dun gerou* combination?their threats of violence?to make out their delivery aa tha edict of the voluntary action oi 'he human mind, or In any way different from the attack of the highwayman. If the fear f his life compelled him to give them up. the law called It robbery, and the Jury we a bound to canttiue the law with adue and legitimate attention to the operation of thoia threatening* and ho* ?le manifestation*. A* to another point?the identity ot the prisoner at the bar with the personage called Big Thunder?he felt confident that he would prove it incon t i'ibly ;rnd presuming tbat the main point of the defend would rest on this question of identity, he was prepare ! to adduce evidence of such a natnra as would foil any attempts to avert the charge against theaccused and it would rest with the defence to prove thai the pri soner waa not present h 'fore they could escape from con vie ion. It rests with define, in view of tha strong p oofs of ideoti'y to be adduced to show he was not the man H iving presen rd to the Jury the main facts of the case, be wou d say that this prosecution was not carried on in consideration of any man -of any question of title? of any regtrd for individual interests Hnch motives he disclaimed. He came there clothed with the sovereign powers of the n-ople to maintain the supremacy of the liw.andn held its mrjesty, snd all depended upon its free and full operation ; for M the day aver cams when it was inadequate to gnarantee the eatery of the cltiaen in person and property, th?y might bid farewell to all that now formed their glory snd pride. Not only the supre macy of the law, but a regard for sacred Jtu ice dictated these pto ecutions. and he called upon the jury to d!s chargeconscientiously their duly, and ronviet him ol ?he criminal conduct with which he. the p. itoner, stands charged, and in very forcible language d *ed with the ?<e*iin* of .hese prosecution* on past an ' fit ure time*.

Big Thunder th?n said that the procession would then march down to V"iburgh>, headed hy himself, and ^Li' t*e Thunder would piecede the sheriff's horse*; when h< i gave them directions he was about twenty leet distant: I we then marched to Abrabnin 8.

Decker's it on a cross road, immediately east from Voshurgh'a about four or five hundred yards, when I got in front of Decker's house they halted the pro c 'felon, and I got nut of the wagon; I then saw Mr. Deck er,la gainst whom I had the warrant,and wanting to speak to nim; I was about going to do so when ihey raid they would send for him; ho was brought into the ring when I was; he didn't know whether he could get the money hut if he did be would pay me; be said he we* not prepar ed to pay me, neither would ko oppose the sale ot the pro party; Big Thunder was dote by me at this time; 1 thee said, as I did at the other place, that I bad dis'rained and tdvrrtised, and that waa the time for selling; Big and Lit tie Thunder said as they had done before, that they were h-re to prevent the sale, and if I attempted to do it; I might do it at my peril; alter some little conversation 1 said I would not sell the property-both ot them had pis tolf: I did not sell because I did not consider it i "?If; I think I was iltcn returning back to my wagon when Big Thunder told mo to stop; l think he thei said that it wai the custom of their chiefi to take the papers from the sheriff when they preven'ed the collection of rent; I refused to give then up; I said I should not give up the papers; be vii ii rmnt of me, and Little Thunder on my left side; both being very near to me; they held their pistols to wardjm.-?Big Thunder had his cocked?it was a com mon short horse pistol 1 think; Little Thunder had avert small pistol with a bright barrel,also pointed towards me; George Shaver was standing I think between Big Thunder and the horses, some feet from me; I resis ec sometime?told him the papers would be of no u?e to him as I had copies; I think I then stated that I was not willins to give them up unlets I was satisfied that the crowd in ended to commit violence on my person: he then said h could satufy me on that subject very quick and then ?lipped away from me, and he theu said to the native "give heed, uatives," and stated to them that the sherlfi was uu willing to give up the paper*, and if they diJ no get them by violruce they could not in any other way; and s,>id all those in favor ,.f taking them should rais< their left hands; I think hit language was ? his "all you who are in favor oi taking tne paper*, peaceably if ou can, if not, by violence, hold up your It ft hands;" they ?hen raised their hands and said "p ile faces, what say yon?" There was a g moral hurra and shout, and a goo<' deal of noise among ton bystanders; ha then came upt? ma, very close, along with Little Thunder, and demanded aiy papers; and I then gave them up to him, I delivered ti him the three distress warrants, a copy of the declirstior aud a copy Of the deed; I have no copy of the distress warrants, but have, of the other papers; it I remembei right I iequalled him to -ay to the people that I surrender ed the papers not willingly hut leluctai.t.y, which he did.

The Senate oi Massachusetts have this day, by a vote of 28 out of SO, elected John Davis Senator in Congress, to supply the balance of Bates's term. This term expires ou the 4h ot March, 1847; so "Honest John" hua two years support provided tor him by his irieads. Lately they have tried to maks him president ot the Massachusetts and Vermont Railroad, with a salary ot #3,500, hut the stock holders and directoia had too much good sense to make their embryo toad a means whereby to (ten sion ofl broken down ledcr&l politicians. They ac cordingly declined the honor, and chose a husmess man for ihe work, at a salary ot #2,500 The old blue light federalists love "Honest John," lor he was always one of the faithful, and as you remetn oer, threw off his old hat in the streets of Worcrs cer, in rejoicing at the news of the taking and burning ot Washington by the British, during the last war. The vote in the Senate shows that there was some little kicking at the caucus nomination, for the Senate is all whig, and yet four votes were thrown against Davis One of these was thrown by Levi Lincoln, the President.for R C. Winlhrop, Lincoln waniiug the place for himself. Two were thrown by Worcester Co Senators for Lincoln, and one was thrown by Cbarles F Attains for Charles Allen of Worcester. Adams wanted bis father to be chosen, but the Massachusetts coot s are utraid to trust the old man, and are also mad with him because he did not oppose the Texas resolutions as unconstitutional. The House of Re presentatives, this afierncon at 4 o'clock, will pro bably confirm the selection ot the Senate, end give. Davis a round majority. The democrats in the House, have nominal* d the Hon. Frederick Robin son, Warden of the State Ptuon, and former Presi dent of the Senate, and will give their votea io him. The Cnetom-House of this city is still undisposed of, and Williams, the present Tyler Collector, is ]Ust fool enough to think he can k< ep it. He gees on to Washington this afternoon for the purpose of -trerigthening his position, but I guevB he will be sent ofl with a flea in bis ear when he gels there, if he does not catch aTar'ar, in the th*pe of a com mission tor Gov.

Collector 1 Williams wrote some ugly letters to one Ilogan, when he was trying to gel this of fice under Tyler, and in one of "them he intimates o Hogan that 'here is a #1500 office for himself, provided he, Willinms, is made collector. These leners ure at Washington, and wuhin the know edge of the Prtsideut; so you may judge thai Willinms will not meet a very cotdial tecepiion at he White House. He is, moreover, a nincorn >oop, and dares not blow his nose, without asking ?erwission of certam men who have made thent -elves his ke-epeis It is not to be supposed that a nere tool of others will be kept in a responsible of fice like the colli etorehip by any other than a Tv i r administration.
