NEW YORK HERALD. N?-w \nrh, Wtdlic?iliiy, Jul) '43. IH4S. >Ir. flneltntmn's Hepoi tc<l 8c?Ign?HBii-Th< Ihfliu nci * at Work-Tli? Succession. A great drill of discussion has taken place as to the truth or falsehood of tiie rumor of Mr. Bucha nan's intended resignation, and move or less has heen said on it by p\"-r* of every description. We do not wonder that it should cause so great a dejjret; ot intereM, for a like occurrence in the present pos ture <>f afiiirs, particularly ot our foreign relation*, would he one pregnant wirh consequences of tireat weight. In the lirst place it would indicate tlmi t'ler# if not that (avion of individual opinions that it averred by the democratic party to exis-t in the cabi r. t of Mr Polk ; it would show that it is composed of men who are not willing to forego convictions ot r.Vit fur the e >ke of more convenient concord ; ant) it would be a good ground for suspecting also tha' other considerations than those ot duty to the Re public, ure sot without their influence on ceitaiu members '* the cabinet. Chang'ts in any of the departments ot govern munt o'-jht to be as few as possible in a well icgula ted administration. Assuming that those who are ap,v ;-t 'd to office are fit tor it, the longer their te nure of office, the better; for the occupant learns i r'.re and more the longer he is in it ? daily grows r aer, until at 1 i*t the ch inces are his successor will be his inferior in efficiency nine times out of Vn. Ilenc\ Mr. Buchanan being an able man, and \ie wl.o is fit to fill the important office he holds, it a/ uld be ? mutter for regret should we realize the ?eimrts < f his resignation, that have been far and % i '( ly circulated. "VVh never source these reports have had. we do not thii.k they are altogether unfounded. It is true, they hive been denied bv the Union, whose testi mony is, p 'rhips, the best that can be had on the ? inject, after that ot Mr. B himself. Tiie Union m y be, and we believe is, sincer* in its denial of a e,'!it in the camp, and, moreover, fully persuaded tint it< inform ttion is pel feet on this point ; but it is ju-tt as liibie to be led astray on tins question, as any oth -r of the numerous journals, which have en t"it lined it seriously. There must be a wide distinc ti >n in ide between its facilities to ascertain the f-eliugof the Cabinet on one hand, and to fathom the under current of the personal asperations and am. bition of its members on the other. No one in the I r sent state of the case will persist in saying thai 'ne reported intention of resigning office, was open ly declared by Mr. Buchanan ; but there will be just ay few to assert that it is the less likely because not y-t avowed. It cannot be denied, that both Mr. Walker and Mr. Buchanan are shaping their con duct ia reference to ihe succession ? that they are each aspiring to be Mr. Polk's successor ? that they , are respectively the representatives of two powerful sections of the democracy, whose interests are by , n > means identical, or in harmony; but above all< j that they entertain views on vital questions, totally at ! variance, the one with the other. In what has been ta id, as to their opposition to the Oregon question, there certainly is nothing exaggerated or exception able It is beyond dispute, that while Mr. Secre tiry Walker echoes the uncompromising views of th' West and South, the views of Mr. Buchanan are of the moderate and conciliatory kind, to a de cree edequate to excite the difference said to exist But there is still another ground of collision between t iem. The man of Pennsylvania is for the tariff, and will not be induced to assent to , the modifications it is about to undergo a' the h inds of the Secretary of the Treasury. lie c t in >t either by a t-icit con-ent or active co-opera- j t >ii 1 'ii I hi* counten ince to this favorite project of lui rival wiihout forfeiting at once the suppoit of his ! constituent*, his own convict ions, and the no less dear | design of being next President of the T'nited States j Tiiese are no id e conjectures; they are well founded | assertions, which cannot be denied by those who j know her.', if they f?|>eak the truth. But la verilt n'rtt jni toujour * brmnr tidire, as they say in France ; j hence it is not wonderful if we hearthem denied, as \v II as the results justly attributubleto their agency, nor is there anything strange in the cautious silence of Mr. 13 ichanan himself upon ihe whole subject. L-*t it be recollected that the position of the Se cret iry of State is such in the Cabinet, that his in clinations c innot indicate what his future acts may be. It would notfollow, that, because he may n< t be anxious to recede from the administration, he nncht n >t lie compelled to tike th it step Jle may feel his fitness to seive his country, and desire to do it. but he tn iv also reluctantly experience a pressure from his colleagues which will leave him no option but lo s ;,j irote from them or forego his honest convictions, a id we believe he is not a man to take the latter alter native. Who then can promise for Mr B that he wi|| nnt throw up his office'? Can he say so himself! j Certainly not, and it is in vain for the " Union " to mike assertions in the fdee of strong probability. II?ar what we will to the contrary, there are differ ences of opinion, and conflicting interests in the Ca binet, which neither can be hushed nor reconciled. Texas is disposed ot, but as long as Oregon remains there will be a bone of contention for the ad. ministration as at present constituted. On this great question, the South and the West will have their own way, despite of all the influence that can be brought to oppose them. Mr. Walker is an exponent of the principles that must triumph in the deliberations of tiie government? he knows his strength, and will use it with dexterity, not only to wards the settlement of the question ol foreign po licy, but to subserve his legitimate ambition; and, in so doing, he will have the sanction of the chi Vdlric South, and the giant West, and a fair prospect of being the successor of young Hickory. The Late Great Fihe ? The military have nil been withdrawn from the "burnt disfrict," and the rains were yesterday thronged with people. Work men are nctivelyemployed in digging out the bricks; goods, bales and rubbish, prepiratory to rebuilding. Several contracts for new and splendid stores have b?en made, and in a short tinenll will be rightagain. We regret to learn that in the midat ofthe confusion and difficulty of the sufferers in obtaining locations for carrying on their business, there ure found men w 10 will take advantage of (heir situation, and dou ble the rents of the buildings in request. This ha a been the case in se\eral instances. It is not yet ascertained how many lives have been i lost. Mr. < )lertch states that there were only three I men in his store at the time of ih?' explosion. He ! states however, that there were eicht or ten men jr. ; the store opposite, occupied by Mr. W. C. Maitland, and that those, he fears, have all perished in the 1 ulna. Twenty gentlemen ofthe First Ward have contri buted to the amount of #1,0110, $30 each, for the te It I of the poor. The contributors have appointed Mr Cruikshanks, Alderman Charlick, and John Cotter, hs u committee of dietribution. As the name# of the late residents of the First Ward are known from the census, tinder the late appointment to Mr. Potter, th-re can be no danger of imposition Tils fuuds are all ready. OvErFT-owi m with Patriotism.? The Natives h*ld an indignation meeting at their Hall on Mon day, and passed strong resolutions against the pro scription of Native watchmen, by the democratic Common Council now in power. Ex-Mayor Harper I and others made one or two patriotically indignant Bjieeches, which were received vociferously by the ' "outs " Mr. Ashrel Smith.? This gentleman, who has been rather conspicuous in the recent Texaa nego tiation, in which "the man with the white hat'* took an active part, arrived in the Great Western lie lias reached home just in time to read the "pulls," fresh fiom the preM, which the Texaa papera are lavishing upon him. Tm Wkatheii. ? Venterday was a very hot day. x the mercury did not go above degrees in nhade The air was clear Heavy Tw.'.xder Stokm. ? Yesterday morning, slnrily alter 2 o'clock, this city and ita environs were visited by a heavy tall of rain, accompanied by the most vivid lightning anil peal upon peal ofthun der. The trees in the vicinity of St. John's Park, received considerable damage ; and several were blown down ; some being cleft to pieces by the elec tric fluid. A large tree which had withstood the ' Teltiug of the pitiless storm "J I for nearly half a century was cleft to pieces, in the Garden, No. 171 Canal street. Several trees were also blown down in various other parts of the city, and broken branches may be seen in various | qu itters ? the Park ? the Batttery, and all bearing evidence of the powerful effects of the storm, whilst it raged for nearly two hours. The citv was en ve|o|>ed in one continued sheet ol flame, and the rain fell in torrents. Between the scorching heat and temperature of the last few days, ranging from 88 to 9(j, and 100 degs. Fahrenheit, the I te calamitous fire, and the storm of yesterday evening, the cui/ens of New York have had their fair proportion of the "ills that flesh is heir to " The storm must have done some hfttn in the vicinity of New York, particularly toward* New Jersey. The city was actu >lly Hooded during the continuance of the storm, the rain having fallen in torrents. The atmosphere yesterday was pure and cxhiliratine; and the sewers, which were in a most filthy condition, have all undergone a thorough pu rification, removing much filth and nuisance. The Park indented yesterday morning a very sail appearance ; limbs of trees were strewed all over the grass. On the Broadway side of the City Hall, towards the back, a willow measuring some thirty-four or thirty-six inches in circumfer ence was completely torn down to about ten inches from the ground. Another tree, somewhat larger, was also torn down in Orchard street. The Battery and the yard of Pr. Spring's Church, at the corner of Reekman street, also suffered considerably; rmny large iunhs of trees broken by the wind are laying about in all directions. The tin roof of the house at the corner ofCourtland and Washington streets, and part of another in West street, below flreen wich, were entirely torn oif. What surprised us most, was to see that not wi tin funding the vio lence of the wind, the walls of several of the houses burnt during the last conflagration resisted its effects, and are still standing, endangering greatly the safety of ihe passers by. In Broadway considerable damage has been done to the awnings and posts ? the latter in several in stances have been torn up and thrown some 30 or 40 fe 't distance? the canvasses literally torn to ribbons The roofs of houses in all directions have been mire or less stripped. About half an hour after the storincommenced;a large sign board was blown with great violence from one of the stores adjoin ing the Franklin House, which was shivered to pieces on the opposite side walk ; an awning with the name of George Gibbs ic Co. with a heavy post attached, was found in the morning in Rector street, near Broadway. It is supposed tp have liepn blown from Washington street, near Rector st 7*.The house No 51 Elm street, was struck with lightning, but the damage received was trifling ? The large tree opposite the house was completely cut jr two, and a person nani"d Mike Wallace, passing at the time, was injured very severely. lie, how ever. recovered his senses in about twenty minutes. N Brooklyn the storm raged with equal fury, and wuli like results : beyond the destruction of a few tret-.-, we have heard ol no damage being done to life or property. Conviction and Sentence of Green, at Tkoy. ? Hreen, ill** wretch who poisoned his wife, under circumstances that greatly aggravated the enormity i't his guilt, has hern sentenced to be hanged on the IDih of September next. The address of Judge Par ker to the convict, is an admirable one of its kind it breathes the spirit of inflexible justice, without any of the mawkish and false compassion for villa ny that we often see an indulgence in from the bench. The jury did their duty honestly; they did : well and truly try the prisoner, and pronounced hitn ' guilty; and he now awaits the fate that will surely be his at the approaching time. We wish we had ?uch judges and juries as sat on this case, in New York : there would not be so many motions for new ! iri Js, nor murderers and murderesses escaping as I 'h-re are now, nor so many occasions of f.inatical triumph for the anti-haiiernan party, whose exulta tions know no bound when a felon e'Cspea the gal- ; lows. ACCIDENI TO T1IE KNICKERBOCKER ? When flhnu, t?n miles below Cat^kill her wulkin.5 beam broke ne-ir the end, with something of a crash, carrying with it the piston. rod, cycliuder, and some other parts of the machinery, causing no little alarm. No one, however, was hurt in the least. The Empire b^ing close at hand, came alongi-ide and took off her passengers, leaving her at anchor on the spot ? The K. was towed to the city, and will soon be in running order again. It is said that there was no racing or unusual speed to cause the break down. Marine Court ? The Common Council have re solved to remove the Marine Court from its present location to the site at present occupied by the Ame rican Institute, and allow the latter to succeed to the building at present occupied by the Marine Court. ? The change is a good one. t)C>- Hon. Judge Bronson, of Florida, and his ex cellency Gov. Dudley, of North Carolina, have ar rived in the city, and occupy apartments at the Ame rican Hotel. Theatrical#, Park Theatre. ? Mr. Coeuriot having recovered, the company has announced for to-night the second 1 representation of La Jui re, a great opera, composed ! by one of the first mu.-ical writers of Europe, Mr flalivy. Nearly all the first talents of th<* company, Mile. Calv?, Madame Casini, and Messrs. Arnaud, Douvry, Co'unot, and Garry, appear. This, al 1 hough a very great inducement to the lover of thea trical [>erfonnances, is not th<* only one, for the sceneries, dresses, iVc., ft re all of a very costly and magnificent kind, and, as was fairly exhibited at the first?representation, runher Mr. Ihtvis, the very ! active director of the company, nor Mr. Fiot, the ! able stage manager,;, have neglected anything : to give to ojx'ra the greatest trial. The audience, ' at the first representation, was very numerous, and ill who assisted expressed themselves perfectly sa tisfied with it. Everything, therefore, tends to con iirm th?> expectation that the second one will be no less brilliant, both on the part of the company, and of the public. NirLpo'h Garden. ? Mrs. Mowatt is an extraordi nary exception to the numerous tfrlwtanUs who have commenced the histrionic profession. She is dready possessed of a graceful action, unattainable i butby years of incessant practice. She is making | rapid strides to the highest pinnacle of theatrical i popularity To-night she again plays Pauline, in t le "Lady ol Lyons," hnd will be ceitain of secur ing another crowded saloon, by her admirable per. soiiation of that character. Crisp npi?ears as Claude Melnotte, and Chippendale as Col. iJanits. To morrow night Mrs Mowatt's benefit, when she sp jiears for the last time as Juliana, 111 the "Honey Moon." Castle Gardew.? This fine place, lor the lovers of pleasure and comfort, continues to be well at teuded, and all agree in speaking well of the per formances. To-night M'lle. Pico is to appear, Hnd tho.-e who have heard her, proclaim her an artist of he areatest ability. M'lle. Desjardins will also con tribute to the delight of the audience by her spmted i dancing. Vauxhall Garden. ? Ail who wish tospend their i ? veiling agreeably, should attend the perforrnan?es | it this delightful garden, where, besides enjoying j ihe amusements offered by the different performers, ry will also be sheltered from the oppressive hem .iich render most part# of the city very uncom* 1 .table Sporting lut?Ul((*MC?'. Be .cox C 'i hsk. I (omokkn, Yestbkday.? There was gi eat cry hut precious litile wool as regards .-port ug. The grand maich between James K. Hoik and J. C. Calhoun did not come oil, in consequence of m lual lameness. It appeared that among tl e sporting circles such was likely to be the case, con sequently the attendance was rather limited, and the sport in unison. Indeed, it was thought previously that there would be no show at all ? nothing for mo ney. But such was not the case. The proprietor when he kn*w tint the "grand match" was not coming ofl", directed that only hall price should be charged for admittance to the different pirts of the ground. Thl? is as it should be ? indeed, as lar as ??port went, the whole atfair might as well have been put oil altogether. Such things are ruinous to sport There cinbe no confidence that matters announced will cine oir if these things are repeated time alter time . Thp only attempt at sport ort'ered, was a purse of -tome SlOt), between Gen. Dunham's b m. Fanny lenks, and Mr. Budges' ch. h. Robin Every thing 'lavin ; been arranged lor this match, the parties making up their weight, dcc., they went forth. At the commencement of the tiret mile, Robin took the lead, which he maintained some two or three lenjfths in front to the quarter in 47s. He kept thus 'o the halt, where Robin was up, in 1:33. Fanny went m front, and took the lead some live lengths mi front, which she kept home, coming in much in h- same position, completing the first mile thus in J.Ol. Second Mile ? At every attempt of the driver of llobm to go lorw.trd, he broke ; consequently Fan iv came in almost a distance in front, easy, in 3:03. The third mile was, as the Irishman riid. f?t??o, repeated, the same over again, in 3:11. The fourth mile Robin snrnewli.-.t dt a.-? ?l (!.?; ?pace between him and his leader, b'it witli not uuch etfect, and went ofl at a somewhat better rate, hut it was not with much effect, and the other came in in 305 , The.lifth mile was much the same. The General ippeared to know he had it all his own way, Hnd icted accordingly, and made the next mile in 3:04, winnimf ihe purse. The total tune made, according to the judges, in ihe five tn'les, was 15:24. Some on the club stand made it 15:20, and 15:21, which caused some grum bling. Pathos ok the Organ ? The Washington Union contains the following morctau : " Wo hnve seen a man? ami a young man. and a young Virginian, ardent as a southern sun could make liim ? re moved from office in the South, and come to Washington ?not to complain, not to murmur his gricvunce*, not to r>erseeuto the administration ? but caluiiy to lay the facts before them, with winch he supposed them unacquainted ?and bearing himself with ?u much dignity and respect for the feelings of others, that evety one who saw him felt a disposition to listen to his tale ; every one who lis tened felt disposed to serve liim ; and finally his merits, thus set oil' with the dignity which became him, were re warded with a better oflice than the one of which he had been deprived.'' This "ardent "young Virginian ought to be placed in some conspicuous spot in Washington, so that the public can have au opportunity seeing him. City Intelligence. Fine? About eleven o'clock last night a Are broke out in a liquor warehouse, No 78 Vesey street, but was extinguished before the flames hail time to do much da mage. Several tire companies were on the spot in u few moments after the alarm was given. The damage principally done wps by water. We could not eel any clue as to how the fire originated, whether ac cidental, or by incendiarism. Another ? The alarm of fire twice yesterday after noon proceeded from some cotton which is stowed in Old Slip, which wan taken there from the ruins in Store street since the gieat fire. We don't know whether per sons have been mischievous enough to make bad worse, or whether sparks may httvo remained in the pile at the time ol removal. At all events it would be well to have it removed to some place where danger of any kind may he ba.llod. It would be not only n dear, but n sad piece ol business, if the slurehoacea in the neighhothood were to catch fite by not usin;; proper precaution iu time Wc sincerely hope it may he attended to by the owners of the property, or by the proper authorities. Vibkwouki ? Rockets. ? The pianoforte wareroom and dwelling house of Mr. J. Rockett, I9i Broadway , nar rowly escaped destruction on Monday evening. in conse quence of a rocket descending on the root of the house. 1'lie shingles became ignited, and hid it not been for the timely warning and assistance of some gentlemen pass ing. the whole building would undoubtedly have been in flames. < Mr. Rockelt thinks rocket-shooting at this sea son ot the year, a very dangerous amusement, and one which should be immediately put a stop to by the proper authorities ? to all which we agree, and sincerely hope Mr. Kockett will not ngninhave occasion to complain of the visits of such dangerous namesakes. Coiionuk'k Okkick. July tl. ? Effects of the Ileal ? The Coroner w n* called to hold an inquest on the body ot Catherine Holland. t>3 Oiatigc street, who t'ied of intem perance and exposure to the heat.

The Committee to whom was referred the rase of Dr. Rees, against whom certain chaigea wen preferred by inhabitants of the different wards, for undue exercise of his official duties in relation to the Bihle in the Common Schools, reported back to the Board, stating their inability to take action on the subject because ol the non-attenr'enre of Or Dees before the Committee and requeuing tho Board to take up the investigation ol the subject matter contained in the charges. ?The Board resolved to take unthe subject, and investi. gate the matter fully , at 3 o'clock on Thursday next, when Dr Revs will be heard through counsel. The Board then adjourned. Brooklyn City Intelligence* Pvbi.ic Meeting.? An adjourned meeting of the citl 'rens of Brooklyn will he held on Wednesday evening, it Hall's Buildings, to hear the report of the committee appointed at the meeting on Monday evening, as to the he?t means of preventing fires by patroling the streets As every precaution should be used at this season, when nearly all the public cisterns (on which the citizens ol Urooklyn mainly rely) are now empty, it is to be hoped that a general attendance will be given. The storm on Tuesday morning removed the roof of a house in Clinton street, near Amity, to an adjoining house, without doing any other damage. South Fame v. ? Tho citizens are waiting anxiously for the proposed arrangement of running the boats until 13 o'clock. It would be of great service to the merchants of New York who reside in Brooklyn, in case of a fire. Police Intelligence. Police Office, Ti'esdav. ? Q nan rl amon% the Ladiet ?

The plaintiff, a merchant in New York in 1842, com menced a suit against the defendant for libel, and upon affidavit, bail was ordered by Judge Vanderpoel in the sum of $6,000. The capias was returned " not found,'' and an alias issued, which was also returned not foun J About fifteen months after the return, the alias, an agent of the Vera Cruz lino of packets, gave the attorney for the plaintiff notice that the defendant had just arrived from Mexico, and was about to proceed to New Jersey Upon this the attorney forthe plaintiff gave directions to his clerk to obtain a new order to hold to bail and issue a second capias, but if no Judge could be found, then to is sue the writ as a pluries, and endorse on it notice of for mer order *o hold to hail. No Judge could not be found, and the writ was issued as u pluries, aud the defendant arresteil upon it, as he was about to leave the city for New Jersey. The application to discharge is founded upon two grounds? the 1st, that there was in fact no order to hold to bail ;and the 2d, that it was irregular to is-ue a pluries unless it had been regularly connected with the original writ from term to term. After notice of this motion, the plaintiff filed, it was alleged, a oon tiivance record, such as is usual in order to save the sta tute of limitations. With regard to the first ground for setting aside the arrest, to wit, the want of a second or der to hold to hail, the Court had, no doubt thnt the or der regularly should be renewed upon each writ, but as it seems to have been the practice to issue successive writs without a new order, not only in this Court, but also in all others in this State, and as the Sheriff had usually ai rented upon a mere notice of the former order, and sometimes from the memorandum in his own books. TI.e Court, in the present instance, held that the origi nal order was sufficient Hereafter, however, they slioul I requite a new order upon edcli writ, and it rested in the discretion of the Judge whether or not to require a i ew Htthlav t. Upon the e-ond ground, viz., 'that the pluries were not connected with the otiginal capias, the Court considered that the filing of the continuance record before the hear ing of the motion to discharge, obviated the objection This had been always the piactice, in order to save the statute <>f limitations. The record in such cases was never tiled until after the arrest, usually not until after a motion to discharge the defendant, and the Courts have uni or nly roused to lo.>k behind the record. After a cm refill review of all the authoiities, the t-ourt consider ed that the filing of this record " m'Tic pro tunc.'' was stif li'icnt. UeMoc the words in this writ making it a plu ries, might be rejected as surplusage, and it might be treated as an original writ and tho former order tu hold to hail used, it being still in force. Motion denied with $7 costs of opposing. David Greig fur plaintiff; Albert Mathews for defendant. Su preme Cot'R-i? Utica, Julv IS. ? Present ? All the Judges. The Examiners of Counsel, (Messrs.

Utica Qazetle Anti-Rent Matters ?yheriti Sedgwick, accom panied by a small posse, went into the town of Alt eram on Monday of last week, and ejected two persons, and tore down their houses. They met with no resis tance. We undei stand that the Sheiiff made application to the Judges of the Common Pleas previous to starting on the expedition, for authority to organise an armed posse of enlisted men under the late act ot the Legisla ture, " to enforce the law and preserve order," but that no such authority was granted, on the ground that it would ad?t a very considerable amount to our count) expenses, which. In consequence of the anti-rent distuib ances, are already pretty large. The decision causes some little dissatisfaetiMi, parti cularly among those summoned on the sheriff s posse, who complain that they aro compelled to leave their business, and accompany tho authoiities into the back parti of the county, without any remuneration, when the Legislature has authorized the organisation ol a posse to be paid by the county, providing two of the fudges deem it expedient. They contend that the count) is better able to bear the expenses of such a pos.e than itidividvai citizens aio to lose their time without leceiv ing anything for it in return. On Saturday the 12th inst., Supreme Court Commis sioner Baker, of Hillsdale, .'itting in the Court House in ihis city, admitted Walter Hutchins, one of the anti-rent prisoners, to bail, in the amount of $!>.000; nnd, on Fri day Inst, Houghton and HeMcn (Dig and Little '1 bunder) were also admitted to kail, by the same authority. The mount of Uoiighton's bail was fixed at $10,000; Welding's nl $6,000. The persons bv whom they were bailed were chiefly from Itensselaer county. '('nay returned home on Friday, taking the two "Thunders" with them. ? / ludton Reporter, .fuiy 21. Horriiii.k Story.?

This was about as queer and foolish a case as was ever brought into court. Airs. Jennings, the de fendant, is the sUter of Mary Currier, the betrothed ol Arthur Huston, the plaintiff. One evening, Wallace Currier, a brother to the ladies, railed upon his unmar ried sister, Mary, and subsequently reported to Mrs. Jennings, his mm ried sister, thai ho had seen Mary in bed with the carpenter. This information dintrefse^l Mr*. Jennings exceedingly, and overwhelmed her with -oiTow and shame, not unmixed with indignation, at the enormity which had been committed by Mary and her Vrthur, befoie even the banns of marriage had been published, 'l'he next morning;, yet belore her nerve :iad been restored to tranquillity, she penned the fol lowing letter to her sister and Ilustcn " Fiom S. 1).

Wh)' not get married > If you are not puhlishsd. or something else done soon, I shall acquaint father ane mother." This indignant epistle Mrs. Jennings sent to Mary by her sister f'aulina, with directions to tell Mary to show it to Mr. Husten, the plaintiff Thus was the publica tion of the libel made out. The defence was, that the charge made in tho lettor was true, and commnnicate in confidence, as advice for the benefit of the parties to whom it was addicsscd. Wallace Currier testified that the evening before thr letter was written, he called to seo his sister Man twice. He went into her chamber, in the Gist instance between eight nine o'clock, without knocking, am found her ly ing across the bed, by the side of 11 usteii Both were fully dressed, and weie lying on the top o the coverlet. After ten, he called a^aiu that MOM Dl|U with >oine nuts as a present for Mary, and entered as be fore without knocking, an 1 again found them on the bed, lying lengthways of the bed, dressed at before, and ovei tiie bed clothes, but Aithur had his arm aiound Mary's waist. lary was called to contradict her brother, and swore that she had never laid on the bed with Arthur, in th< manner described by her brother, or in any other man ner. For the defence, it was maintained that as the defend ant honestly believed her sistor to be getting into a ba< and dangerous course, it was her duty to admonish, cau tion, and rebuke her; arid that being her senior, and the parents not being in tho city, she stood in laco pannti: in lelation to Mar) .
