On being challenged, stating that he lived in Washington street. The partv who canvassed the Ward in which this street is located, reported against, and opposed Hart's right to vote, on the ground of his being a non-resident, upon w hich plaintiff stated he lost his papers. The defendants were both acting in this capacity of what are called majority in spector*; and defendant (Perkins) warned Hart not to tako his second oath, threatening that he would arrest him in the event of his doing so, and have him commit ted. The minority inspector, a Mr. Cole, hereupon in vestigated Hart's right, und ruled in favor of hi. record ing his vote; upon which plaintiff* took the second oath, which was administered by (. ole. The delendant drew (Perkins) immediately his warrant, nnd had Hart placed in the Tombs, whence he remained from the 6th until the 11th November, when he was discharged. It was further put in on the part of the plaintiff' that Perkins had no right to arrest him save lor disorderly conduct or breach of the peace.? The plaintiff hero rested his case, when the jury found a verdict in tavor of defendant, Penniman, who could not be held responsible for the acU of his associate ; and de fendant, Perkins, pleaded his right to make the arrest lor the alleged crime of perjury, on the ordinary grounds which authorise the citizen to arrest any party for a fe lony.

FURTHER PARTICULARS OF THK FlttS 11 Cath arine .Street.?The following are the parti culars of the tire mentioned in yesterday'# paper as near <u> we could collect them: About un hour previous to the fire being observed (say 4 o'clock) a man was observed sauntering up and down the street, op|>osite the door ol the store (and occasionally standing at it) by a lady who resides in a house, opposite, and it is verily believed that he must have uecn the founda tion of this doleful transaction. A watchman who was on duty was the first who observed the fire,and gave the alarm instanter; and m trying to force in the door wakened a brother of Mr. Towle's, who slept along with others in the establishment for the protection of it. Mr. Towle made a rush down stairs towards the basement : but his progress was arrested by the flames for a moment; but on making it second rally suc ceeded in gaining the bottom of the store, ana there by saved himself from inevitable destruction. Ha had his face and whiskers burned u little, but for tunately escaped without further injury. A brother in-law of Mr. Barker 'succeeded 111 rescuing all the books and other documents of the establishment, who heroically rushed up stuirs to the oiiicc which is kept on the second storv, and <|<nte fear less of the consequences which might have ensued. Silks, shawls, linens, and all kinds of goods have fallen a prey to this devouring element, and the loss to Messrs. Barker Ar Towle will not be less than $30,000. The tire companies, as usual, exert ed themselves to their utmost skill and judgment.and indeed much praise is due them. Nearly the whole front of the establishment is destroyed, together with a good part of the rear; but notwithstanding, Messrs. B. having much enterprise, will, it is hoped, soon re cover this great loss; and we confidently hope the mifnreant who is supposed to be the means of this catasti oidie, may speedily meet the ends of justice. Destructivr Fire in Boston.?Yesterday after noon, the carpenter's shop of Mr. Geo. Nowell, at the foot of South Cedar iitrect, took fire, and the wind being fresh from the westward, it speedily communicated to the adjoining buildings in that street and the foot of Pied, mont street, and was not arrested until upwards of twen ty-five dwelling houses, chielly of wood, were destroyed. Home of tho furniture of the occupants was removed several times, and some burnt in its last place of de posit. The loss will not probably fall short of $30,000, and the amount of insurance is probably not over $10, 000 or $12,000. The building next Mr. Nowell'* shop, was a small stable, occupied by Mr. Stephen S. Andrews, sexton of Rev. Mr. Skinner's church; his horses were got out. Both sides of South Cedar street to Church street were destroyed, with the exception of tho dwel ling of Mr. Alfred Morgan, printer, on the corner, which was injured in the roof and upper part, and his furniture was damaged by removal. The Methodist Church, oc cupied by the Society under Rev. Mr. Raymond, on Church street, and between South Cedar ana Piedmont streets, was considerably injured in the roof and tower. Fortunately, the fire did not cross Church itreet, or the damage in the narrow streets beyond, would probably have been very great. All the buildings on the south crly side of Piedmont street, to the Church were des troyed, and several on the north side of the street, com mencing about midway, and extending to the large brick dwelling house ut the corner of Church (treet, which was badly injured. Several of the housei were occupied by two or more families, chiefly poor per sons, who have lost all or nearly all they possessed. The following are some of the names of the sufferer* On South Cedar street Mr. (>. Nowell, who lost his car neuter'* shop, with a valuable stock, and three brick houses, on which he had insurance for $1000 each; Mr. Chas.

Seth Hall, sexton of the Methodist church, who resided under the church,had his furniture badly injured by hasty removal.?Boston .id v. May 12. Criminality and Mi-rder.?There was a horrible tragedy enacted in the town of Otselic, in Chenango co.. on Tuesday last, between James C. Griffin of tnis town, and a man by the name of Coit of Otselic. The circumhlanccs, as near as I can learn from witnesses, were as follows. It seems that Griffin had resided in OV sclic until within a year past, for some ten years. Some time in April, 1S44, Coit seduced Griffin's wife, and com pelled Griffin, w ho is an ignorant and harmless man, to let him have his farm, and return to this town, Coit re taining Griffin's wife. Griffin had endeavored by all le gal means, during this time, to rescue his wife from her disgraceful situation, but on account of threats from Coil, Giiffin dare not go there, and even here (30 mile* from Colt's) he has been constantly armed, being in con stant fear from Coit. Some days since, Griffin received a letter from his wife professing penitence, and a desire to return to her family in this town. I'pon the receipt of this letter, Griffin, in company with his wife's brother, w ent to Coit's upon the errand, but Griffin was afraid to venture into the house, except upon the strongest urg ing of his brother-in-law ; and when he did so, he was prepared with pistol ready loadel and cocked. As soon as he entered, Coit said, "Jim, 1 understand you have been armed for the last year, now, d?n j^ou, "leave the house." Griffin hastily obeyed him, and after leaving the house, in endeavoring to let down the hammer of hi* pistol, which was in his pantaloons pocket, It discharged the ball eutering his thigh just below his body, and lod ging in his knee. All who were in tho house, hearing Griffin hallo, went out and found him running round! crying. " Dont let him hurt nic." Coit said " Jim, hare you killed yourself.'' When Griffin coming round him caught up a whiffietrce thut lav naMby .dealt Coit a blew upon the hack of the head, whin^piterally smashed hi* skull to atoms. And alter Coit^Bll, struck him twice more before the spectators int^mered. Coit lived only about two hour*. Griffin did not attempt to escape, but remained there till the sheriff came and took him in to custody. These are the simple facts of the case.? There arc various opinions in reference to Griffin. Most who are acquainted with him, think that after the acci dental discharge of his pistol, he supposed Coit would immediately kill him. To saythe least, it i* a strange affair, coming from so harmless a man. ? Urookfitld Ltt ter, May 9th, in ./irgus. Legislative Affair*.?The certiorari bill, as It is known here, being a bill to remove claims sub mitted by the contractors from the canal board to the Supreme Court, will probably be lost, the Senate having for the House bill substituted a new proposition, that the Canal Board, in assessing the damages claimed by a con tractor, shall be |iermilte<l, to offset, on the part of the State, any surplus which the same contractor may have been fortunate enough to make upon any other job he may have executed tor the State. This is a queer way of administrating justice to claimants, but it finds favor with many.. The bill Is now before a committee ofconfer* ence. The excise bill was reported to the Senate y otter day, as it passed tho House, except that New York City is excluded from the provisions of the bill. In tho House the bill to equalizo taxation, by (ubjecting to taxation reserved rents, w as reported complete.
