Amidst the general selfishness and bitterness of feeling that is displayed by office holders, more par ticularly when the guillotine has been applied, it is refreshing to find one instance of liberal ideas and spirit manifested. The occasion to which we al lude is the presentation of a handsome silver pitcher to Dr. Joiin McClelland, who has, for the last year filled the place of Resident Physician to the Alms House, by the various medical assistants who have been attached to that institution during his regime. The aff air came off at the Carlton I louse, and the pitcher which bore the following inscription: PRESENTED TO john McClelland, m. d., By hia Medical Assistants in tlie Alma House citabliah ment ol the city of New York, aa a testimonial of regard for hia professional attainments, and social virtues, May 13, 1S45, Was presented to the Worthy Dcctor by Dr. Tilden Drown, in a most appropriate speech, which was re plied to in a feeling manner by Dr. McClelland. This part of the business being concluded, the com pany, which included some of the mott eminent medical and surgical talent in the city, adjourn ed to the dining room, and partook of an elegant supper With the greatest zest. The cloth being removed, some most excellent remarks were made by Dr. Wood, complimentary to Dr. McClelland in reference to the activity with which he had peiformed his duties not oiily to the patients of the Institution, but in his endeavors, by means of the great medical school which he had hud control of, to udvance clinical instruction, which is of so much importance to the student. He staled that the Doctor had always been most anxious to throw open all tlie resources of the establishment to those seek ing to advance themselves in their profession, and he regretted more had not availed themselves of tlie opportunity, lie was followed by Dr. McClclland, aiid Dr. llasbrouck, the present incumbent of the oltice. Dr. Francis gave an excellent speech, in tho course of which he adverted, in tha most impres sive terms, to the great attention that should be paid to clinical instruction, and concluded by proposing as a toast?" A generous intej course among the members of the Medical profession." He called on Dr. Parker, who called on the profession to en deavor by the cultivation of good feeling, one with another, to do away with all that might lead to the common complaint of tlie jealousy that was said bo frequently to be fouud among its members. It was by the means of such social meetings aa the present that much was done to do away with such ideas. He was glad to hear that diplomas for services were bestowed to the as sistants of the medical department of the Alms Houst by the Board of Commissioners, such testi monies of approbation proved a stimulus to the young men, and were of much service to them. A spin; of emulation was to the last degree important in medical education, and he was glad that the esta blishment of anew medical school in this city added to th?t feelin. He concluded by proposing the memory of Dr. Wm. Pitt Canning, a young surgeon of much promise, who had served a term at Bell vua, but on being transferred to the naval service had unfortunately fallen a victim to the yellow fever on board the Vandalia in her late cruise. We were at this stage of the procceedings, obliged to leave, much to our regret, as the delightful commencement of tlie evening promised to ripen into one of delight ful and dignified enjoyment. Affairs tin Canada. Our latest advices from Montreal are of the 13th inatant. Then all was quiet in Canada. The Pro vincial Parliament stands prorogued to the 17th proximo. The Welland Canal wu opened on the 10th instant? Betwoen forty and fifty vessels wero waiting at ths en trance. There it was expected they would all pass the locks by noon of Monday.

Owen Sound, on Lake Huron, C. W., has been created a port of entry, be., for vessels arriving or departing therefrom. The weather at Quebec on the 8th instant, continued rerv cold. During the night a huavy frost set in, and early on the 0th much ice of considerable thickness re mained. The proposed meeting at Hamilton, in relation to a railroad from the Niagara to St Clair rivers, was held oh the 16tli inst The Buffalo Courier says :?The measures agreed upon by the United States, to allow drawbacks on the duties upon goods passing through New York, destined for Canada, is rendered nugatory by the Inspector General of Customs in Canada, who has decided that full duties must be charged on all articles entering Canada that have pass ed through the United States, even if they were imported from England. The Onotgo Advtrliter of the 10th inst states:?Up to last evening, twenty-one invoices of merchandise, ship ped at New York for Canada, under the provisions of the drawback law, have reached this port. The parcels con sist mostly of West India goods, with some Cantdn and Smyrna. The first importation iato this port, say* the Kingston Newt, nnder the provisions of this bill, took placo yes terday. The importation consisted of foreign fruits and cigars, and was made to the order of Mr. Carruthers.? The lot consisted of 117 boxes Malaga raisins and 36i M. cigars, the American duty on which amounted to ?49 0s 3d ; the imperial and provincial duty, ?69 Is 3d. The first duty, with the exception of 3^ per cent upon its amount (nearly ?1 As,) is remittod under the provisions of the new bill, and consequently on this order the impor ter saves upwards of ?47, of which advantage the con iumer ultimately shares the benofit The Sherirookt Gazttlt givos the annexed : About fifty C anadians passed through this town last week, on their way to the frontier, to assist in setting up the monuments on the boundary between this Province and the United jtatos. The party are now at work near the head of Connecticut Kivor. Thar* has been a report in circula tion, that the Surveyors on the part of the United State* claim that Hereford and Clifton lall into New Hampshire under the lato treaty; but we can hardly be lie vo that mch an absurd claim is now to be set up.

May U.-Jaimi Fenimort Cooper VS. Ortelty 4" Mc Elrath.?TKi? wai an action of libel brought up from th? Courts below on demurrer. The caso has been argueel by Governor Seward, and concluded thii day. The al leged libel was published in the IVibunt dated Novem ber 39, 1841; as follows : "At all events,having published the letter excepted to, ai a matter of iatclliponce, without any tort of feeling toward Mr. Cooper, but such as his conduct in the case seemed to excite, we have at all times stood ready to publish cheerfully anv correction or cuiitration he might choose to send us. He chooses to send noue but a suit for libel instead. 8o bo it then?Walk in Mr Sheriff'. "There is one comfort to sustain us under this ternblfi dispensation. Mr. Cooper will have to bring his ac tion to trial somewhere. lie will not like to bring it in Now York, for we are known here. Nor in Otsego, for he is known there." The second alleged libel went as follows :? "Knowing what we positively did and do of the severe illnfcss of the Xvife of Air. Wcdd.and the dangerous state of Lis eldest daughter, at the time of tliti Fonda trials in question?regarding them as we do?the jokfes attempted to be cut by Venimore over their condition?his talk of the story growing up from one girl to the mother and three or four daughters?his fun about their probably having the Asiatic cholera among them, or some other contagious disease, See. kc., however i: may have sound ed to others, did seem to us lather inhu?Hallo there !? We had like to put our foot light into it again, after all our tuition. Wo mean to say that, considering that just the day before Mr. Weed had been choked by his coun sel in surrendering at discretion to Kenimore, being as sured by said counsel that, as the law is now expounded and administeied by the Supreme Court, lie had no earthly choice but to bow his nock to the yoke, pay ail that might be claimed of hiin, and publish whutever hu miliation should be required, or cImi prepare to be imme diately ruiued by the ?uits which reniiuore and Kichard had all cady commenced, or were getting ready for him> considering all this, and how much Mr. V\ eed had paid and must pay towards his subsistence?how keenly VV. has had to smart for speaking his mind of hi in?we did not think that Kenimoie's talk at this time and place of Weed's family and of Weed himself as a man so paltry that he would pretend to sickness in his family as an ex cuse to keep away from Court and resort to trick alter trick to put oil'his case lor a day or two?it seemed to us considering the present lelations of the parties, most uu gen ?1 iieie we go again ! " 1 he third alleged libel was in the following words :? "Keuimoie clo.ed veiy effectively with an appeal loi his character, and a picture of the sufferings of his will and family?his giown up daughters ollen suffused in tears by those uttucks on their lather. Some said this was mawkish, but wo considered il good and think it told. We have a different theory as to what the girii were crying for, hut we want state It, lest another dose of Supreme Court Law be administered to us." The defendants put in several pleas, and in relation to the first alleged libel aver that plaintiff on :16th Nov., 1841, caused to be printed in Albany Argus a notice charging on the defendants the publication of false state ments: that said words published by tliein were in reply to and commenting on said notice; that plaintiff for ten years was known to many good citizens ol Otsego coun ty, and had the reputation there of a proud, captious, fee. man, wherefore, he was in bad repute; thatby means of plaintiff' being in such bad repute there, plaintiff'would not liko and did not like to bring action against defend ants for words, kc, in county of Otsego. They also aver in relation to the second alleged libel that plaintiff' ought not to maintain action, kc. because they say de fendants wore editors, kc. and words constituted part of ?n article giving an account of Plaintiff'? suit against de fendants, tried at Ballston Spa., on 0th December, 1813 and aver that on such Uial plaintiff in presence of Judge' Wlllard, kc. spoke words as doscribed; that at the time of such trial Weed's wife and children were sick, not of Cholera, lie., and that Weed was in consequence detain ed, these thing^xsing known to plaintiff'. That previous to said speaking, plaintiff had brought three actions against Weed, one against Hoffman ?i White, and two against all?in one or whieh (Weed defendant) plaintiff recovered $56 on 30th April, 1843; in another against all, $87 on 14th September, 1843; another noticed for trial as above; that plaintiff' had on 1st December. 1843, sued out three writs against Weed, White, kc., all prosecuted by R. Cooper, attornoy, kc., who had them in his posses sion, and showed them by plaintiff's direction to H. Hammond, counsel for W eed, who insisted that Weed should compromise, kc.; who did submit matters between himself and plaintiff to O. Cady, and agreed to sign and publish what ho should direct; all which was known to plaintiff'when he addressed Jury, kc.; wherefore de fendants published. To the third alleged libel defendants aver that plaintiff' ought not to maintain action, kc., be cause,they say that defendants were editors, kc" and aver that at Circuit Court on 9th December, 1843, at Ball ston, Spa, in a suit between them, plaintiff' addressed Ju ry, and did say words [to same effect us charged] and defendants published true account That it is not true that family were suffused in tears for reasons stated by plaintiff, but say that before that time plaintiff had com monccd various actions on frivolous giounds; on 1st Ju ly, 1840, procured indictment against J. W. Webb?on 1st November, 1843, com me need throe actions against T. Weed?on 1st December, 1843, two against Weed, White k Hoffman, and one against Hoffman k White; and had on 1st December, 1843, sued out five capiases against Weed?and these things being known, kc., plain tiff fell into disesteom, kc?and these proceedings and disesteem were, to wit: on the day plaintiff' addressed Jury, known to his wife and family?and his wife and ?daughters and family were for this cause grieved, as well they might; wherefore defendants published. Plaintiff demurs to the different pleas on the following grounds : In relation to the pleas as to the first alleged libel, the grounds of demarrer stated that the matters therein are not a justification of w?rds in first count. Plea does not specify any acts or facts which show that plaintiff was ever justly held in bad repute. The aver ments in regard to reputation of plaintiff are improper and insufficient to show that it was bad. Not certain that reputation as alleged was a consequence of his be ing known. Plea does not sufficiently aver the facts sub stantially alleged in libel that plaintiff was in bad repute, and that such was a consequence of his being known. The causes of demurrer on the socond allegedlibel sets forth generally, that tno matters in the pleas do not show justification, nor specify the several matters intended as a justification; and that somo of the pleas establish other charges against the plaintiff than those in the libel. The grounds ol demurer go on to state that some of the pleas were informal and repugnant, after avorring suits, kc., without averring attorney, kc., refers to said suits which plaintiff'and his attorney had already commenced. Alter avorring, all of which was known to plaintiff' does not state what facts he intended to aver were known to plaintiff'. In relation to the third alleged libel, the causes of de murrer set forth that the plea professes to answer'part only of words in 3d count, and is not a justification of that part, it sufficiently appears from portion of libel lous words which the plea professes to justify, and from other portions ol publication in 3d count, that deliendants in charging plaintiff' with being the cause of affliction, kc., dm not txean or refer to matters set forth in plea, and that reader would not so understand charge. It does not appear that disrepute, kc., and plaintiff's proceedings were known to wile, Stc., at the time when tiiey wept, kc., but the time is evened to lie the day plaintiff'ad dressed the Jury alter tiie alleged sufferings, 't he aver ments that suits and capiases tested on ui^just and liivo lous grounds, and for pretended libellous words are vague and uncertain, and piea should have stated facts winch made tliein so. The acts of plaintiff'alleged in plea are not sufficient cause for suffering, kc., anu aver ments of the ill opinions of others do not meet the charge, such not being ol a character to aff'ect and grieve family? and also tnat acts of plaintiff can not make imputation of them libellous. The plea does not sufficiently designate persons intended by lamily of plaintiff. Gov. Sewaru argued the cause at considerable length on part of the defendants, and cited several authorities which defined the character of libel at considerable leugth. The Court was crowded to excess, when the case was concluded on argument. The decision will be given at the end of the term. Common Plcu. Before Juuge Ingraham. Mat IS.?Libil.?David M. Magi* vi.

The first event we announced in advance of all the other city papers, and gave the ful' particulars in relation to the examination.? Althougii investigation was mad* into the mysterious and dreadful murder by Justice John G. Spear, of Hud son county, aided and advised by Mr. 8cudder, the prosecuting attorney, from which sufficient evidence was obtained to induce the belief, that Mrs. I'ennoyer had been aided and abetted by two male accomplices, consisting of her own son, Theodore I'ennoyer, and her son-in-law, William Dean. Justice Spear and Mr. Scudder having received information that the two young men were in this city, yesterday morning came over, and employed officers Relyea and Lalor to search for and arrest the two young men accused of being parlicept criminit with the suicide, Mrs. Pennoyer, in ttie murder of her brother ! After diligent and prompt search, the officers succeeded in arresting Pennoyer in the 8th ave nue, with his carpet bag in his hand ready for a start, and at a house in 8th avenue near 34th st, Win. Dean. D.'s wife was in the room at the time of the arrest, and when informed that her husband was arrested upon the awful charge of murder, she immediately swooned away. The two men were removed from this city to Hudson county jail yesterday afternoon by the officers. Grand Larcent.?Mr. John Elton, from Orange Co. resigned himself to the embraces of Miss Eliza Clark, last night, and while in a state of somnolency, Miss Clark left him to hia slumbers, and is said to have taken with her $50, which was in the pocket of tho slumberer's breeches. She was arrested to-day, by officer Wm. II. Stephens. ?

McGerkin soon alter left, and it was not until they had both gone, that the watch was missed.

Symptoms of a Riot in Johnson,?This morning, a rumor reached us that considerable excitement existed at Dry Brook, in Johnson, among the workmen in the print work* of Messrs. Hunt St Taylor, and that a riot was anticipated. On inquiry we learn the following facta:?It ?eem* that one of the owners has gone to |>art* unknown, leaving an amount due the workmen, together with a number ofother debt* unpaid. Yesterday after noon, or this morning, the workmen took possession of the works, being anxious to securo themselves from loss, or supposing that by so doing they would stand a chance of receiving a share with other creditors. From a person who came from the spot this morning, we learn that the greatest excitement exists in the neighborhood, and some fears are entertained, that when the sheriff enters upon his duty of attaching tho property, there will bo an out break. The sherilt'lcft the city about 11 o'clock, for the scene of disorder, accomjianied by officers, for the pur pose of placing an attachment on the property, at the instance of some of the creditors.? ProviHenctTrarucript, May 14. Swindling Operation.?A young man named Williiim Manhein on Monday called at several Market street houses, representing himself as being from Richmond Va., and had come to the city for the purpose of purchasing a stock of goods. He said that his father had recently died, and that he had succeeded him in the prosecution of the business. He laid aside goods to the amount of $5,000, besides purchasing a suit of clothes at a store in Chesnut street, and a trunk of shoes, which he ordered to bo sent to Congress Hall, where he had taken lodgings. Having promised to pay cash for the goods, they w ere accordingly packcd up, and ready for transpor tation, when a circumstance occurred which excited a suspicion, and it was ascertained that he had no funds to settle the bills which he had contracted?but was mak ing a bold attempt to obtain the pro|>erty under false pre tences.

Pott, May 10. Adjournment op the Legislature.?The sixty eighth session of the Legislature?a session of more than usual interest and importance?was brought to a close at four thii afternoon. The whole number of acts passed wa* 367. The act in relation to the canals, passed both houses by considerable majorities; but was returned with the cfcvernor's veto. It was then rejected for the want of the constitutional requirement, a majority of two-thirds of the members present. This bill appropriated the as certained surplus revenue of the canals $17? 000,) after complying, according to the language of this act, with the pledges and guaranties of the act of 184J, and paying $'iOU,OOo to the general fund, lor the preservation or completion of unfinished portions of the ttenescc Valloy and Black River canals,for bringing into use such works on the Knlarged Krie Canal aa the Canal Commissioners shall decide will best promote the interests of the State, and for the reconstruction of certain locks, kc. kc. Much of the legislation of the session waa compreaaed into the closing day a and nights. Such waa the fart in rolation to the railroad bills. All. or nearly all, pome sixteen or seventeen in number, except, we regret to say, the New York and Albany Railroad, became lawa on the last day; among them the bill releasing the New York and Krie Railroad from the payment of the ?3,000, 000 due the State. One of the moat important billa of the session, is tho excise law, which authoriaea the submission to the peo pie of each town, of the question of license or no license, excepting, however, the city of New York. Two bank bills, one for extending for two years the charters of the Commercial Bank of Albany, and the Bank of Rochester, became laws. These bills fully re cognise the individual liabilitv of the stockholder*. Not the least among tho acta of importance, is that "re commending a Convention of the people of this State."? Such ia the title of the bill, although we are not aware that it recommends the measure, further than to provide for taking the sense of the people on the subject, and to direct the time and manner of holding llie Convention, if the decision of the people shall bo in the affirmative.? Upon thia aubject a diversity of opinion and coune pre vailed among the democratic members in both brancne*. While many believed this an inauspicious time for the re organization of the government, and were lusniciou* of a movement so warmly and nearly unanimously urged by the whiga, all were content to submit the question to the preliminary decision of the people, and to be guided bv such decision. As the bill was Anally paaaed. the sense of the people is to be taken at the next annual election, ami if in tho affirmative, the election for delegates will be held on the last Tuesday in April, 1846; the Convention will assem ble on the first Monday in June; the amendments to be submitted to the people at the election in November; and *uch aa are adopted take cffect from and after the 31st Dec. 1846. Among the public bill* which became laws, wore, the act to reduce tho number of town officers and town and county expenses; in relation to the contracts or debt* of railroad companie*; to authorise tho Canal Aoard to grant a re-hearing in certain cases, and to regulate the New York and Brooklyn ferrie*.
