'?? The Hon them Baptist Convention To their Brethren t'n the United Statu?To the Cengrtga tiom connected with tht retpectiv* churchei?and to all candid men. A painful division has taken place in the Mi**ionary operation* of the American Baptiits. We would explain the origin, the principle*, and the object! of that division, or the peculiar circumstances in which the organization of the southern Baptist Convention became necewary. Let not the extent of this disunion be exaggerated. At the present time it involves only the Foreign and Domes tic Missions of the denomination. Northern and Southern Baptists are still brethren. They differ in no article or the faith. They are guided by the same principles of gospel order. Fanatical attempts have indeed been made in some <|uartera, to exclude us of the South from chris tian fellowship. We do not retort these attempts, and believe their extent to be comparatively limited. Our christian fellowship is not, as we feel, a matter to be ob truded on any one. We abMe by that of our God, his dear Son, and all his baptised follower*. The few ultra Northern brethren to whom we allude must take what course they please. Their conduct has not influenced us in this movement. We do not regard the rupture as ex tending to foundation principles, nor ean we think that the great body of our Northern brethren will so regard it. Disunion ha* proceeded, however, deplorably tar. The Ant part of our duty i* to show that its entire origin is with others. This is its history. The following portion of this address is in a condensed fOEOL Firit?The Baptist General Convention was composed of brethren from every part of tho States. Its constitu tion and its practice for the last thirtylycar* know noth ing of the diitinction between ilave holders and non-slave bolder*. Both classes have been on an equality, and met in church communion without discord. A special rule of tho Constitution defines who may be missionaries, viz:?"Such persons only as are in full communion with some church in our denomination, and who furnish satUfaotory evidence of general pioty, good talent*, and fervent zeal for the Redeemer's cause." Nothing in this disqualifies slaveholder*; moreover, the luperintendent of tne education of native missionaries, has been, with universal approbation, a slaveholder. But an evU hour hajt arrived, and the enemy has sown discord among us. Inuie last two triennial conventions it was warded on by this resolution. "Resolved?That in co-operating together, as members of this Convention In the work of foreign missions, we disclaim all sanction, either expressed or implied, whether of slavery or anti-slavery; but as individual*, we are free to express and to promote, elsewhere, our views on these subjects, in a christian manner and ''in December last the acting board of the convention at Boston, adopted a new qualifying special rule, viz : "if any one who shall offer himself for a missionary, having slaves, should insist on retaining them as his pro perty, they could not appoint him." The date of this novel rule was one when the com promise resolutions could scarcely have reached our remoter mission stations. This is an usurpation, and one Intended to efl'ect our subjugation to it. It stopped the blow of southern benevolence : three States refused to ?end forward.contributlons, and then came w ar within our gates. 1 By this decision the Board has placed itself in direct opposition to the constitution, under the plea that the appointing power was confided to the Board. It had also [ sanctioned anti-slavery opinions, and by Implication con I demned it?the convention having said neither should be done. These brethren have acted on a sentiment they have failed to prove?that slavery is in all circumstances sinful, while their solemn resolution at the last conven tion left us free to promote slavery. Our northern brethren have, in the language of the Apostles, " forbidden us to speak unto the Gentile*;" al though they were dealt with a* brethren to the last mo ment. Several hopes were entertained that the Board might be brought to feel the grievous wrong they had inflicted, and were therefore asked to revise and remove the obnoxious interdict, which was answered with con temptuous silence. aocoud?The principles of the Southern Baptist Con vention are conservative, proposing to do the Lord's work in the way our fathers did it The constitution we adopt is that of the original Union. They have receded -not we. We have receded neither from the constitu tion nor from any of the original ground work on which we met them: and if that ground of confederation were not equitable, how came it so long to be acted uponl If equitable, why depart from it? We have acted liberally towards ear northern breth ren. By usurped authority they have thrust us from the platform of equal rights: but we will not practically leave it on any account We mnst not be a party to any arrangement that would drive us from our beloved color ed people, and the much wronged aborigines. Thirdly?Our objects are the extension of the Messi ah's Kingdom and the glory of God, in the promotion of which we find no necessity for the relinquishment of any of our civil rights. We will not interfere with what is Cesar's, nor compromit what is God's. We sympathise with the low moan for spiritual aid of the four millions of half stifled red men, our neighbors, with the sons of Ethi opia among us, stretching out their hands for the Gospel. And we have shaken ourselve* from the nightmare of a I ?air'i " strife about word* to no|profit," for the profit ! of those poor, pericning souls, we u?a mu>? uoit Chan work about these otiject\too long?now we *hort an debate to get to bniines*. With zeal, in which we are willing to be counselled by God, our eye* and hearts are turned to Burmah and the Karens?to the continent ofAfrica?to China and her thirsty millions. In the south we have property which we will offer to the Lord and his cause. . ... ... In parting with beloved brethren and old coadjutor* in this cause, we could weep, and have wept, for our selves and for them ; but the season, as well of weeping as of vain jangling, is,we are constrained to believe, just now past. For years the pressure of men's hands has been upon as far too heavily. Onr brethren have pressed upon every inch of our privileges and our sacred rights? l>ut this shall only urge our gushing souls to yield pro portionately of their reneweo effort* to the Lord, to the church universal, and to a dying world ; even as water pressed frem without ri?es but the mere within. Above all the (mountain prennre, of our obligation* to God even our own God ; to Christ and to Him crucified; and to thelpertonal and social blessings of the Holy Spi rit and his influences, shall urge our little streams of the water of life to flow forth, until every wilderness and desolate place within our reach (and what extent of the world's wilderness wisely considered is not within our reach 7) " shall be glad"?even at this passing calamity of division ; " and the deserts of unconverted human na ture rejoice and blossom as the rose." By order of the Convention. WILLIAM B. JOHNSON, D, D. Augusta, (Oa.) Mth May, 1846. Tallassee Falls and Factory.?It ia not gene rally known that perhaps the finest Falls for manu facturing purpose*, in the Southern State*, are on the Tallapooia River, at Talla*see, near the line between Montgomery and Tallapooia counties. The amount of water power I* almnst illimitable, and the proximity of the Fall* to the heavy cotton producing section, make* the situation one of unusual value and advantage.

Love and Murder.?A correspondent of the Dt troit Advtrtwr writes as follows from Milwaukie? date. May 9:?Not many months since, there wa* married in Detroit, a silversmith or jeweller, named Preuitieur, to a very pretty woman, who lived with him a fortnight, when the left him to visit a sister, a Mr*. Ludwigg. in Milwaukie. Some two months since he broke up his business in Detroit, and established himself in Milwau kie, where his wife had sued for a bill of divorce. Vain attempts at reconciliation were made, the divorce effec ted, and the woman about to be married to another. It appears that this morning he had resolved on one more effort to induce her to marry and live with him, and fail ing, to kill her, and then put an end to his own existence. Accordingly, he had repaired in the morning to the resi dence ofMr. Ludwigg, and failing to induce her to change her mind, persuaded her to walk on the outside of the garden,where he first shot at her, andthen stabbed her in several plaoes. Mrs. Lndwigg hurried, en hear iiur the report of the pistol, to the relief of ker sister, wnen she was violently *tabbed in the back pert of the neck. Supposing his work accomplished, the wretched man leaped into tne river and tried to drown himself : he was, however, soon taken out, hound and conveyed to priaon. When we left Milwaukie, lhe victim of this ma* s desperate passions was pronounced out of danger. Mrs. I.uowigg was not been seriously injured. From Rio Grande?Peace with the Rebels.? A letter from Rio Grande, under date of March 13th, says " Peace in this Province was made on the '18th alt, after nine and a half years cf civil war.

This is shown by the proclamation of the Rebel General announc ing the peace, wherein he says : 'Bra zil being threaten ed by the invasion of a foreign enemy, Ito., ft behooves us to accept the Emperor's terms ' kc. Business, for a considerable length of time, will not be at all affected either way, in consequence of the peace In this province, P as the war has been merely nominal for some time back, and the import markets are superabundantly supplied, while the export are in very limited existence, the inte rior hnving been so long in a state of inaction.

[Correfpondeuce of the Herald.] Galveston, May 0, 1845. Annexation Feeling in Texan?The Minion of Aih bei Smith to Europe?Com. Moore and Gen. Houston?Count Saoligny and Capt. Elliott, 4*c. The departure of the Bteam propeller "James S. McKim," induces me to drop you a few lines in re lation to matters and things in our thriving, hospita ble and enterprising little city. The question which your perspicacity pointed out as a leading one, months before its adoption by the political moles of Alleghania, is all the go at present, from the Sabine to the Rio Grande. But, notwith standing the universal demonstrations in favor ef annexation, and the general appurent unanimity that prevails, I am still of the opinion that some in fernal coup d'etat is contemplated by those unfriend ly to the measure, who, however much I regret it, are neither few nor impotent. The mission of Ashbel Smith to England, of which we first heard through the New Orleans press, has famished much food for speculation, and is, in some occult manner, connected with an opposition that I fear will yet work mischief, unless overawed or coun teracted by determination and a dignified display of force on the part of Col. Polk and the Alleghamans generally. Madam Rumor, who, although some times an arrant jade, is occasionally correct, and on this occasion affects to Bpeuk from authority, says Ashbel visits England and France for the sole object of excusing the " lone star" to Bull and Crajpand, for the meritaBle breach of contract accruing from the non-fulfilment of her commercial treaties with those powers, now that she has cast her fortunes with her lovely, prosperous and free sisters,'whose manly bearing and determined air strike those worm-eaten, musty old monarchies all pale. I believe Ashbel in tends to do what is here stated ; but keep an eye on him, for, most assuredly, some rascally intrigue is connected with his sudden exode. Commodore Moore?the chivalric, the brave?is out in the real cut and slash order against Hickory No. 2. He " does not mince his words, nor mollify damnation with a phraseyet I do not believe he can succeed in drawing " Old Sam" either into a street fight or a ten pace set-to. Sam is a member of the cnurch, (not militant) and whatever his early predilections in the fighting line may have been, he wisely follows in the footsteps of his illustrious pro totyj>e, and eschews the bellicose mode of arranging difficulties in these^his latter days. The Count de Saligny, representative of La Belli France, left us some time since, and is now, 1 un derstand, sojourning with J. P. Benjamin, Esq., and his lovely and interesting wife, at New Orleans. The gallant Chinese commodore (Elliott) left in the British sloop of war Electra, ostensibly for Charles ton ; but really, 1 surmise, for parts unknown, as trouble was likely to accrue to him from some little attentions bestowed by him on the lady of the rep resentative of a certain German freetown. As this is not a solitary instance of that gentleman's devo tion to the sex, which has been matter of pleasantry for months in our gossiping little place, you no doubt know all that naa passed, and I deem a word to the wise is sufficient for them. This is a funny old world, and modern diplomacy fa guilty of strange vagaries. A singular mystery envelopes the proceedings of Houston and Anson Jones at this moment, which I fear bodes no good to the right cause, which alone looks to the greatness and glory of that glorious con stellation of states, destined ere long to assume that position in the aniurs of this continent, which of right they should, and to which you have more than any other individual correctly stimulated them. On the meeting of our Congress, 1 shall, if any thing worthy of note reaches me. keep you duly ad vised ; and in the meantime, wishing every success to the Herald, am your attached friend. Old Rip Wnngi and Bufferings of the Cherokee*. [From Cherokee Advocate.] Tahleivah, Cherokee Nation, May 1, 1845. In making up our weekly budget of editorial itema, it ia extremely painful to ui, and, we doubt not to our rea ders alio, to obierve tbe frequent murder* and other cri minal offence* that occupy among them 10 con?picu?u* a part. Mo?t gladly would we be relieved from this un- i pleasant task, did our duty as a public journalist allow it for these outrages indicate a state of morals existing amongst a portion of the Cherokees that augurs badly ant such ?? o?n nominee nothing to their peace, their dignity, or permamenttorosperity. in contemplating the revolting picture that these frequent acts of blood-shed, crime and dissipation presents, of a portion of the Chero kees, and that of but a small portion ; two inquiries arise, what are the causes of the rices existing amongst the Cherokees ? and what the remedies ? The increase of immorality amongst the Cherokees commenced several year* beck, and has ita origin ia tbe unfortunate circumstances that surrounded them prior to being removed from their eastern homes. Before the po licy of removing to the west, all the Indians indigenous to the east of the Mississippi river, had extended its iron hand to the Cherokees, their general condition was happy and promising. Their rights were generally well pro tected. They felt secure in their persons and posses sions, and enjoyed peace and contentment. Availing themselves of this gracious state of affairs, ao indispen sible'tothe moral and intellectual advancement or all communities, whether white or red, they rapidly im proved. Their condition was changing, as it were, by some ma gic influence. The domestic arts began to flourish. In dustry secured with their frugal habits, abnndence of the necessaries and comforts of life, and even many of its luxuries. School* received reasonable encouragement The reduction of their languago into a written one, en abled distant friend* to commune one with the other, while the weekly newspaper conveyed instruction and amusement to the inmates of the humblest log cabin. In short, their situation was happv?the light ot Revelation had dawned upon them with its benign influences, and the star of future prosperity glittered brightly in their firmament But that star was soon to be obscured, and cloud* to lower over them thick and black. The request to re move was not complied with?the command to remove unheeded. And here date* the origin, not alone of trial*, sorrow*, afflictions, wrong*, oppression, to all, but, what 1* far more painful, of demoralization and corruption to many. When it we* aaeertained that the Cherokee* were atrongly, unconquerably adverse to removing West, a regular *yatem of the most infernal vexations was concocted and put into operation by aome of the States and private whites, to wear out their patience, to make their situation a bed of thorns, and to " grind them to dust," or drive them from their homes. Treaties were disregarded?States' laws were extend ed over them?the ancient land marka broken down, and the Cherokeea left the victims of thoae who fettered with chaina and cast into the same prison the miaaionary and the murderer?who converted churches into grog shops?who flooded the country with whiskey?tore down the government of the Indiana aa if it were afabrie of straw?puniihed innocent individual* and perpetrated other acts which we have not the time, mach leas the diapoeition, to ennmerate. Amid all these trying circumstances, and horrible in* flueneea, the great mass of' the Cherokees remained un corrupted and incorruptible. But not *o with all. Thore were exoeptions; aome were charmed by glittering ail ver, iome became gambler*, aome drunkard*, aome idlers, and others were seduced from the path or virtue and innocence. Krom among thoae last enumerated, may be found aome of thote depraved but unfortunate being*, who, while indulging the habit* and vice* imbibed from the white*, commit the erimea that are occurring in our country. Other aource* of crime may be found also. in the traf fic in ardent spirita on the frontier, and in the reckle**, infractory spirit diffused among certain classes by the singular importance that is permitted abroad, to attach to the restless, mercenary runctionista that creep into exiitence dubbed is the ohiefs, head-men, kc., of this and that party among the Cherokee*. The last men tioned, we consider indeed the most prolific of all other source* of crime amongst the Cherokees. There are in our midst, as in every community, aome individuala impatient of ail restraints, and some who are too indole at to work, but at the aame time thirat after money. Mich men are generally ready to resort to any expedient that will gain the object of their ambition in the easiest way?especially ia this the oaae with the first mentioned, and hence it is that ao long as (tactions are even noticed by penons ia authority in the United States, so long will there be complaints and inducements to the vicious to disregard all law. But we hare already said more on this subject than was intended, and will close by merely adding that the remedy and preventive for Crimea must be sought in inculcating the right public spirit: in suppressing the whiskey trade, and in an im partial and rigid enforcement of law against all offenders. Mob Spimt at Milwaukik.?An unpleasant dif ficulty Km sprung up between the people of the Kant and West Wards of Milwaukie in regard to bridge*, which resulted In the destruction of the bridge leading to Kilbourotown, and the removal of the embankment ?t the west end of the bridge at the foot of Ontario street, so as to render it impassible. These outrage* were com mitted by the Weet Warder*. "Hi* Kaat Warder* asaem bled in considerable foroe to comult what meaaure* should be adopted, and were *0 excited that violence wa* feared. The meeting wa* addressed by J. K. Ar nold, H. N. Wells, and others, and the popular ftiry re trained.

Conn, a colored man, was brought before Charles 8umne?, Esq., Commissioner, to answer to a complaint preferred bv Robert Kantoul, Ksq., Dis trict Attorney, for the munfer of Andrew B. Brook*, chief mate of the Ontario, whale ship. The aooused was brought to this country in the Junius, recently arrived at New Bedford, and this morning Corsa was brought up to this city by Col. Barnes, U. 8. Marshal. The following facts in relation to the case are derived from statement* made by Corsa and letters received at Nantucket, where the family of Brooks, the deceased, live. While the On tario was lying at anchor at Atecamus, on the west coast of South America, in August, 1844, Corsa went ashore on leave, and returned to the ship in a state of intoxication. The Captain, Gibbs, put him in irons, and kept him con fined a day or two, and then released him. Soon after wards Capt. Oibbs was informed that Corsa intended to desert, and he therefore had him put in irons again.? On the 37th of August, while the Captain and nearly all the crew were ashore, Corsa contrived to get his hands free from the irons, and, procuring a musket for the purpose of intimidation, he wont to the deck. The moment he gained the deck, the mate rushed towards him, and he instantly fired and shot the mate in the head, killing him instantly. Corsa, then, with another musket in Ins trend, threatened to shoot the cooper unless he would jump overboard. The cooper jumped over, and Corsa lowered a boat, got into it, and, still armed with the munkot, got on shore. He then travelled a short distance inland, and dug a hiding place with his bayonet in the ground. The Ontario in tne meantime sailed, and Corsa, unable to live any longer In his burrow, went foraging for food, and finally fell into the hands of some Spanish soldiers, who supposed that he had robbed some ship and then deserted. They asked him for " ounces;" that is gold, and when he denied that he had any, they nut him to the torture by a very simple contrivance. Ta king the (lint out of the lock or his musket, they placed his thumb in it instead, and turned the screw upon it, till the flesh was all mashed up. But as Corsa had no gold, the soldiers could not very well screw any out of him. They next placed him in a canoe, where one of them, after blindfolding him, attempted to shoot him, but his gun missed fir*. Afterwards they put him in prison, from which he was transferred to the U. 8. ship , and from her to the Relief, and Anally was handed over to the Consul at Lima, who sent him home as above sta ted. When brought up this afternoon, ho looked cheerful but behaved in a very respectful manner; and in reply to the question?after the reading of the complaint? " What do you say to this charge, he distinctly answer ed?" guilty." An interesting scene now followed. Oeorge W. Minns, Esq., his counsel, suggested to him that he had better plead " not guilty." Com*?Why, it is but very littlo odds to me. It's all known. Counsel?Yet it is better that you should plead not guilty; for there mar be circumstances to show that it was not wilful murder. Corsa?It is immaterial to me. I am willing they should do with me whatever is God's will. Couwsicl?If you did not intend to kill the mate, you may not be guilty of wilful murder. Corsa?It was not my intention to kill him, when I first went en deck. Coi'fSRL?Then you ought to say " not guilty." Corsa?Well, I'll say " not guilty," then. Mr. Rahtoi'l now stated, tnat tne consul's certificate was the only groun-1 on which he was prepared to ask for the detention of the prisoner.

Mat 33?Trial oj Kleim for Murder continued?This trial was resumed at half past ten o'clock thia morning. The court room waa aa much thronged aa the previous day. The prisoner cat aa usual by hi* counsel, and wore the same gloomy appearance; he kept his hat in the same position as the day before. The name, of the jurors having been called over, the trial proceeded as follows : Dr. Tki.lsroft, examined hy Mr. Bewbdict?I am a surgeon; it is fourteen years since ( commenced medi cine: I have given a good deal J,of attention to caa?a of insanity; I have seen prisoner several times; the Ant time 1 saw him was at the Tombs, but I hesitated to gfoo an opinion then, as i thought it would be necessary in this case to see him several times before doing so; hia external appearance has been the same as at present; I have spoken at each intercourse; I spoke to him in both the English and German languages; from my interview with him 1 supposed he had been suffering from mono mania. or melancholy, and that he waa insane; 1 agree with the cvidcnce given by Doctor McDonald; he ap peared quite insensible aa to the fate that awaited hia, and did not seem to know what he had done; I have heard the evidence offered here yesterday. CrotB-examined hy Mr. Paterios?I think prisoner ia not at present capable of managing his affairs in his pre sent state; I think hint imbecile; 1 do not consider prison er was an imbecile from birth; the first time I asked him about his parents, he gave me a confused answer; 1 aaked him what religion he waa, but I could not get any satis factory answer from him. Dr. Eabl, examined by Mr. Bewedict?-I am a physi cian; I have seen no less than five thousand eases oi in sanity: 1 have, during the last two years, been connected with toe Bloomingdale insane institution; I had 196 pa tients under my care; I at the instance of the Ciiciut Judge visited prisoner in his cell, and arrived at the con clusion that he is insane; 1 do not consider, in all my conversations with prisoner, that he could have ejected insanity in the way 1 saw him: I remarked he always stood in one place and one position, except in one in stance. When I visited him, he was setting on his mat tress, buton my entering hia cell, ha rose and went to that part of the roem he used to stand when I visited him previously. Cron-examimd fry Mr. Patebsoh?-When I examined prisoner's head, 1 did not perceive any mark of a scar; prisoner told me when he waa about eleven years old he had an eruption on his head, but that it was cured. Mo nomania might proceed from eruption not having been properly'treated.or by being driven in on him; I think da mentia is the leading characteristic under which thia man is laboring now; I think monomania must have pre ceded it, and that he is an imbecile. If the prisoner sup posed the world were seeking his life, and wanted to kui him, I believe that that would be monomania; from any thing I have observed in prisoner, I would not call it mo nomania, but it might have been the origin of that which he is now laboring under. Dr. J. H. Schmidt, examined by Mr. Sheppabd?I am a physician: I have examined prisoner, with re gard to the state of his mind; I have been with him for fifteen or twenty minutes, and from my ob servation and his general appearance, I think him to bo insane : the last time 1 visited him I wanted to feel hia pulse, nut he would not allow me to do so ; I told him I wanted to see if he was sick, and he said he waa not; ho would not allow me to go near him, when 1 put any ques tion to him he would sometimes answer yes and no to the same question; I think monomania and dementia might exist together and run along side by side or into eaok other. Cron-ex*mined by Mr. Patebson?I believe prisoner to be laboring under generally insanity at present. Mr. Patersow, District Attorney, at thia crisis then called as a rebutting evidence tho following witnesses. The first was the re-examination of James D. 8tboh?, who stated?Whenever I asked pri soner about this affair he would make answer " me doat know?me don't know ;n 1 asked him several other ques tions and he gave me the same answer as before ; when he was at the prison I asked him if he knew hew mack money I took from him, he said, " not quite ten dollars, two gold pieces ;" I neither saw or heard any thing from prisoner to prove to me he was insane ; 1 asked him it ha knew who 1 was; be said 1 was an officer ; 1 spoke to him about a shanty he had erected at 13th street, and if ho lived alone, and if he had no companion except the dog, and he answered he did; he said he cooked for himself Chables Bibd, examined by Mr. Patebsoh?I am a Police officer ; I arrested prisoner on the 91st of Septem ber, 1843 ; 1 hed conversations with him at that tiase : he stood at his window thrusting at me with a stick ana spear; I had conversation at the Upper Police, when ha was arrested ; 1 showed him the sword and asked him to whom it belonged 7 he said it was his; he afterwards came to the Police Office, and said he would sue me for the sword ; his appearance is the same as it was in De cember last. AFTERNOON SESSION. Two O'Clock.?Th? names of the Jury hairing beeH called over, the following witnesses weree xamined Kfcbf.n T. Johxhon?Wu a keeper of City Prison last December ; had charge of iccond corridor ; Kleim wu in cell 6!2; uaed to see him three or four timet a *?r. with the exception of Sundays: 1 had conversation with him with regard to hif food and shaving, Sec.: I had con versation with him as to where he lived, and nis money ; there are piMi leading Uuough the cells of the priaon ; prisoners talk through them to each other; 1 often hear noise arising through this source when going through the prison : the cells have beds in them ; they occupy about one-half the width of them ; Kleim generally eat his meals the same as the rest of the prisoners did ; 1 never found anything irregnlar in his conduct; 1 have heard him answer " no " to questions, when he meant " yes :" 1 never saw anything about him to make me be lieve he was out of his mind : each deputy has charge of a corridor ; I had charge of Kleim. Cron-tj-amitud kyMr. RHcrrASD?Prisoner never com menced any conversation with ma; f dont know that I ever said Kleim was insane; 1 might have said so by war of a joke. Johi* W. Feaecis, surgeon, examined by Mr. Fi tcbson?I have had my attention called to insanity for several years, both here and abroad. I have seen Kleim in the Tombs, and here in Court; he is what would be called of a bilious constitution, a heavy man; those causes will be produced by confinement for seve ral weeks; 1 cant sey I see anything in his appearance which would cause me to think be was insane, except from the reasons I state; I do not think he is an idiot The prisoner does not possess that peculiar characteris tic about him that would lead me to suppose he was in sane; from the conversation I hare had with prisoner, I think he can distinguish between right and wrong: I be lieve him to be sane and a responsible agent Ut his acts. Croti-eramintd by Mr. Beekdict?I have only bed an opportunity of examining prisoner once; 1 don't think I ever mado such a mistake on the previous trial as to sey Kleim was insane. 1 said his state of mind might be con strued into demented; 1 said bis confinement might pro duce his peculiar habitude of mind. To District Attorhet?'The circumstance of pilceu er running out of his workshop, and retaining with pieces of glue and stuff for making chairs, and other like circumstances, might tend to insanity, which might be produced by many things, perhaps love affairs, ana suoh John, Surgeon?Was employed last year in the City Prison; has attended cases of insanity; it is mere than twenty-three years since 1 commenced, have bed conversation with Kleim; conversations with him were always commenced by me; they were about his occuaa tion; he said his branch was chair-making, and that he disposed of them in Chatham street, and that when man ufactured they were worth from nine to seventeen dol lars; be said he only finished them in sand-paper; he said he could not make a set in a week; 1 told him I heard he was about getting married to ft Dutch lady in the neighborhood where he lired, and he repelled the idee, and said "no, no, no;" in my opinion, prisoner is a sane msn. Croit-rxamintd by Mr. I abandoned my profes sion for Keeper of City Prison about last August; 1 dont recollect that Kleim ever said, that the man who pot me in will come snd take me oat; but I've heard him say he would get oat; I have observed Kleim qoite eccentric in his conduct. Mr. Vahoeevoet, Clerk of the Ceart. was called cad sworn, to testify relative to an inquest held last April on prisoner, as to his insanity. An objection was put in by the counsel for prisoner, which, afler consultation by his Honor, Judge Ldmonds, with his associates, they ruled the objection to be valid. Dr., who was previously examined on the defence, was re-examined by Mr. Hheppcrd- Assuming the facts in this case, that have been proved, to be tnic, I consider prisoner now te be insane. Drs. fcsrl and Tellkroft testified to the tame. Mr. Patkrsoe?Will yonr Honor allow me to send for my Doctors^again, to hare him re-examined? This appeal was not granted. Here the counsel for defence stated they had closed. Mr. SwrrtRn summed up the evidence on behalf of pri soner in a very eloquent manner, commenting Strongly, fiist on the testimony of persons who hare known pri sonei as to facts tending to show insanity ; secondly as to prisoner's state of mind drawn from the net for which he stands charged, and its attendant circumstances; thirdly, as to his state of mind drawn from his written papers long before the act was committed; fourthly, from the evidence of the medioal witnesses, awl to what extent the jury were to weigh such testimony in their miml; and cited several passages snd cases from the fol lowing eminent authorities, namely?Bay's Medical Ju risprudence of Insanity, page 56 ; Orey's Medical Juris prudence, p. as# ; fttoek on n<m romjmt mmtit, pp. M, II, ?7 ; Kay, 181 ; Rogers' trial, 1M ; Dew v.
