POSTSCRIPT The Anti-Rent Trials Ended in Delhi. Mfc.NTKNf It CI OF THE FRI80FKRH. Laflieiitable t'oiisequenee of Crime. Mre are indebted to Mr. S. Grown, (Mail Agent,) who arrived in the otearner South America, at hall past two o'clock thia morning, for a slip from the of fice of the Delaware Express, containing the follow ing highly interesting information, under date of Delhi, Saturday Evening, Oct. 11. Edward O'Connor Convicted of Murder?-Kan Steenherg [ to be and O'Connor Sentenced to be Hung?Four Prisoners iri't to the State Prison for Life, and Thirteen for a Term of Fears?Adjournment of the Oyer and Ter miner. Tiie trial of Cdwanl O'Connor, alias Powbattan, for tha niurdar of Undar Sheriff Oamnn N. Steele, hat been brought to a clote, after a tilting of five day*. Mr. Uoidoncommenced summing up yesterday morning in behalf of the prisoner, and spoke till half past 4, P.M., occupying about seven hours; and it is not for the want ol a (aithiul discharge of his duty, in making an earnest and able appeal to the jury, that his client is not now at liberty. Mr. Van Brntm, the Attorney General, followed on the part of the prosecution. The station he occupies, his reputation, rank, being a stranger, &c. naturally ex cited more interest in the summing up on the part of the people than would have been felt had the duty de volved upon tome member of our own bar; his address' which occupied about 4$ hours, was listened to with the most profound attention by a la^ge auditory, amongst ladie which we noticed many ladies. Mr. Van Buren made a most ingenious and forcible address to the jury; and the views he presented of the case, his arguments touching the several questions of law and points involved in the whole matter, were so clear and acute as to render the fact of the prisoner's guilt irresistible iu the mind of eye ry individual present And what gave muck force to his address was the apparent desire on his part not to go a step beyond his sworn and imperative duty. Judge I'msrs charged the Jury in his usual clear and distinct manner, and decidedly against the prisoner. Ti.ecase was given totheJery at a quarter past eleven ~ adjourned to 7 o'clock this o'clock, when the Court morning. Upon the assembling of the Court at the appointed hour, the prisoner was placed at the bar, and the usual question being pat, the loremau answered " we find the prisoner at the bar guilty of Murder." The jury being polled, each responded that such was hia verdict. Ti.o Court then adjourned till 10 o'clock. 10 O'clock.?The Court assembled to perform the me lancholy duty of passing sentence. The Court-room wae crowded to excess. The prisoners were variously affect ed by the pronouncing of sentence upon them. Van Sternberg, Brisbane and several others were deeply moved, while O'Connor, Squires, Karle, and some others appeared kaidaneil to their late. SENTENCE OS' JOHN VAN STEENBERO. Judge Parser?John Van steenherg y >u have been fuunii guilty of the murder of Osman N. Steele; have you buy thing to say why the sentence of the law should not be pronounced upon you 7 1'aisoxRR?1 am innocent; I don't think 1 ought to be punished. Judge Pa iirer?You have been tried by a Jury of your country, and one of almost your own selecting; you have been defended by able counsel and have been pronounced guilty. The coutt entertained no doubt of your guilt. You was one ol the two hundred disguised men who were present at the Earle sale, and wno had combined to take the life of an esteemed citizen and a faithful pub lic officer. And there is much reason to believo that you fired on that occasion, and perhaps the fatal shot. You have thus taken the life of a fellow being; and the court entertaining not the slighest legal doubt of your guilt, there is no reason why sentence should not be pro nounced upon you. Y'ou have but a short time to live. It is not necessary now to admonish you in relation to your awful situation. There are others whose province it will be to advise wiin you, and who will see that you have every oppor tunity and means furnished you to prepare for your final eud. It is the judgment of the Court that you be taken from hence to the (dace from whence you came, and that on Saturday, the 29th day of November next you be taken to the place of execution, and hung until you are dead. Prisonku?(much agitated)?may I speak?Mr. Gor don, I want to? Judge Parrf.r?I you have any communication to make, you can make it to your counsel. The Sheriff will remove the prisoner. SENTENCE OFEDW/gD O'CONNOR. Edward O'Connor, you have been found guilty of mur der. What have you to say why seutence of the law should not now bo pronounced against you 7 Prisoner.?I say I am not guilty of thncrime. Junes: Parser -Upon that subject the Court enter tain no doubt. No doubt can exist that you was at the Earle sale ; that you was one ol the 200 men armed and disguised on that occasion; and even if you did not fire, till of which there is at least n question, still you was there and psiiieipated in the outrage; there can therefore be no question ef your guilt. The duty I em now called upon to perform, is a most painful one I have known you and your family for man) \ eats. Your a young man of more intelligence than Yen feenburg ; you aro young and possessed of abilities; end toil have respectable connections; you ate, tun! store, less excusable These advantages which yott possessed, should have disposed you to respect the ia* a It is. therefore, a painful duty to pass sentence upon you. 7ol are to bo cut ofl'iu early life,from friends, fioin kindred, arid from the world, for thus taking the Stan 1 of open resistance against the laws of yourcoun ti y \ mi have but u few days to live. It is your duty to improve the time and prepare for death; an nwtul change awaits you; and we trust you will take advan tage oi the means in your power to prepare for that change. '1 he judgment of the Court is, that you be faken hence to the pl-re from whence you came, and that on Satur day the 29th day of November neit, you be taken to the place of execution, and there, between the hours of 10 o'clock in the morning and 3 o'clock in the afternoon, you be hung until you are dead.

Squiieit, you hare plead guilty to man slaughter in the 1st degree. What have you to lay why the seuteuee of the law ahould not be pronounce upon you 7 Prisoner.?1 don't know that I hare anything to say. JvDtiK Parkkr.?Idon'tiee how you can have. You weie indicted for murder; and it is the merciful dispo sition of the prosecution which has induced the accept ance of your plea. There is hut little doubtthat your exertions have contributed in a great degree to the murder of Steele. Ycu were u mover and originator oftlm rebellion that has resulted so fatally; and though not legally guilty of the murder, you are morally so; ' dated laws ami the violated laws require that you should lie pun ithed with severity You have, too, contributed largely to swell the number of those engaged in the Insurrec tion, by inducing many others to participate in it. You are to be cut off from society ; you will hence' forth be civilly dead ; society will no more be disturbed by y our machinations' The sentence of tho Court ia, that you be confined in the State Prison in Clinton County for the term of your natural life. sentence or moses eaei.e. Moses Eerie, you have plead yuilty to manslaughter in the first degree What have you to say, Icc.l Prisoner?] hojte your honor will consider me ; and do me all the good you can, and 1 hope the God of Heaven will reward you for it. I hope you will try and get me pardoned, that 1 may return to my companion. Judge Pareeh? It is certainiy a painful duty to pass sentence upon eman of your years. You were indict ed for murder, and you owe it to the technicality of the law that you have not been found guilty of that crime. It was the course taken by you that lead to the death of Steele. You placed your property in the hands of a dis guised hand n men, which led to the resistance of the sale, and finally to the murder of the under Sheriff?end public justice demands that your punishment be severe. We must sentence you to the State Prison for life. You will thereiore be cut oil'from your friends, and from society?and the public will hereafter be secured from the piesence of one who is guilty of so high a crime, and who has been the cause of consequences so laineri table.

A similar ar aiigement is trade betweeu all the otlier lucks on the canal. Tile latere thus elevated furnishes the wa-er p-iwar To ih .t side of the bo it nearest the cisteru is at t'.ched an up igli'tube which, a little above the lower end, IS b'anclied; bra cli being so carved as to discharge water ho rizontally in the directum of the stern of the boat; the other is curved iu the same mauuer, but so as to discharge water hori zontally iii the direction of ihebow. The la'ter remains closed by agate or valve, ezcept when it becomes necessary to run tne boat stem foremost t is tneu opened and the gate or vstveoi the other branch is shut The upper part ol the tube a terbe ing ezteuiled up to a point, on , two, three, or lour feei higher than the cistern curve i over into it, foriniug a siphou. ?"??ter mending down perpend eularly to within a short distance ol the bottom of ihe cistern, (or so fsr as to ensure its being at sn times cove ed wiili water,) it is here again curved, aud i ex tended forward ill a hor.z nit. 1 direct on and parallel to the sides of the cistern. Behind ihe portion of the tube last de scribed, is attached a luoy, whose diameter at the point ol at tachment is just equal to th?t ol the tube; its depth equal to about three times itsdiaineter. the diameter becoming less gra dually until the iidis terminate iu an edge at the dot .neeOl four or live 'ert from .he tube One of lass capacity with he edge forward, may b-attached in (rout, filling the angle ol the tube, but not ezteudnig beyond lis mouth. Thesei buoys.are not absolutely necessary. At the highest part ol the tu e a .null tlrxible fir tube is inserted, whteh is connectedwith a small eshattst pump, Which may be worked by hand, lot hat side of the boat nearest the cistern, are uttached i wo projecting arms oue near the bow, the other near the steirn..both ezlj- id nig horizontally and at right angles with the boat, reaching nearly to the supports of the cistern.

The buuv bef-re mentioned, by sustaining and P****iug upward the overhanging portion ol the tube, not only keeps the boat ??righted," but uielines it to run near the cistern, the rol lers come in contact wiili the r rip before mentioned, and by rolling on it prevent friction. 1 hus the boat is propel .ed with out the necessity of a st ersman, at a speed proportioned to the elevation or the water iu the . istern above that in the canal, and to the size of tlielube. Aspeed of more than twentytnt es an hour may be attained tfgreat .peed be made the leidt g object Midway the ut>right portion of the tube the upper portiou is connected with the Tower p rtien, by passing into itwater tight or nearly so, lapping several feet; so tWihe upper portiou c n be raised or towered, so that the tube en be lengthened or shortened o suit the various elevations of the cts'eru; "jjd *? thit it can be raised until the mouth of it is higher than the cis teru, enah'ing the boat to make sufficient distance betweeu it and the cistern to admit of the free passage ol ianother bo?t go ing in either direction. An upright post is firmly attache'i to the host by the si'le of the lube. In or at the top of this post is fixed a horizontal axle, with tumble gudgeons and bearings. Firmly fixed on this axle are two rollers, one small the other large. One nod of a chain is fastened in the groove of the small roller, and the other end to the tube, just above the tennina tion of the upright portion of it. One end or another chain is fastened in the groove of the large roller, and passes around tt several times. The other end is fastened to a weight which nearly counterbalances the moveable portion of th-tube when it is tilled with water. By having the necessary difference be tween the diameters of the two rollers, the cottnterbslaiictug weight need not he more than one-tenth or one-twentiethMPart as heavy at the last mentioned portion ol the tube when filled " Instead^of the counter balancing weight, the chain may pass down and be fastened to a windlass, by turning which the movable portion ofthe tube may be raised or lowered. Bv either arrangement, the services of oue person would be suffi cient.

[CviTMpoD'ience of the TleraM ] Washington, Out 11, 1840. For the list twenty-four hours it has been rain* ing as if to rnuke up tor utl the deficiencies of the summer. It still continues unabated. The great est immediate advantage from this inundation will probably be a navigable rise in the Ohio; for, accor ding to the theory of Professor Espy, these rains have extended beyond the Alleghenies Their ef fect here, however, at this juncture, is rather a dis advantage in the suspension of the work upon the numerous buildings now in progress of erection in the Federal city. We expect this nor'-easter to hold up in a day or two, and then we anticipate a spell ?f Indian summer?that most gorgeously beau tiful of all seasons?that most Elysian climate upon the face of the earth. Yesterday we gave a list of certain conspicuous Albany politicians lately arrived in Washington. Most of them, if not all, are bidders upon propo sals for the erection of a naval depot at Memphis^ Tennessee. There was an understanding and a combination among them, in opposition to tne pro bable one when they Hrst came on; but there has since been a misunderstanding and a dissolution among them, as we are pained to relate, and Conse quent jealousies, incompatible with the harmony of the gang. Each man ib now thrown upon his inde pendent propositions, and each being acquainted in advance with the proposals of every other member ol the clique, there is fair ground to presume that some of them will effect their object. One gentle man, however, more shrewd than the rest, went to the Chief Clerk (a day or two since) of the Bureau having cognizance of naval contracts, and asked if it were not admissible to put in a blank bid, cover ing all possibilities of competition. The motion being ruled out of court, the gentleman ia to-day busily engaged in cyphering out a specific chapter of proposals, which he expects will undermine all competition and secure him a fair profit into the bargain Notwithstanding, we will bet upon the successful ones against the field; and we will go to the extent of a hat with any gentleman disposed to accept the challenge; and this in the teeth of Wet more's official dinner last Sunday. You will have observed that Blair & Hives have issued a prospectus for a Congressional Globe, of sixteen pages per week, and that Ritchie ?Xr Heisa determined to underbid the great ejected of the Ex ecutive organ, have issued proposals for a Congrta lional Union, of twice sixteen pages per week, upon nearly the same terms. This affords you the fairest and most conclusive testimony ot the harmony exist ing at present between these rival firms, and their respective friends in Congress and throughout the country. Messrs. Blair & Hives appear to be inappeasable. To conciliate them for their expulsion, ths adminis tration has kindly promoted to office from the late Globe establishment, hall a dozen of its reporters and printers And what ia the return to these evi dences ot a desire for peace on the part of the ad ministration?what is the return trom the excom municated editors 1 An advertisement to the public boldly proposing to run down the Union, and drive father Ritchie back to the tripod ol the Richmond Enquirer. Is not this conduct uncharitable?most uncharita ble on the part of Blair and Rives 1 After having acquired from the party princely fortunes, thus to op S>se the chances ol redemption offered to Father itchie, who has grown poor in the service through which they have become men of capital?to say the least of it, >s it not uncharitable 1 But it arises from one ot those anomalies of human nature, that the more it acquires ihe keener becomes its avaricious apjietite. The struggle for the printing of the House will be very interesting to all concerned, aod to the uninterested and uninitiated very amusing and cu rious. The Court of Inquiry in the case of Lieutenant McLaughlin, has yet a host of witnesses to examine. Doubtless the Judge Advocate, Mr. Pnilip Barton Key, would he willing to the task of examiningdou ble the number. Naval Court or inquiry. Navy DEfARTMEXT, > Washixgtox, October 10, 1848. 5 Charles Aaprkwh was called and sworn. By the Judae Advocate?I was attached to the Flori da squadron; I went out as a private of marines; I til there about ten months when I was made a corporal, and in five months after that I was made a sergeant; I arrived there on the loth Aug , ls3?, and came away on the 10th July, 1841; I we- twice tick in the hospital at Indian Key; I was in the hospital five days at the first time, and fourteen or hlteen days the second lime; there were about twenty patients nt,tnis time perhaps mvie; not over thirty though; there were, dum-g the time I was in tho hospital, about a dozen beds on bedsteads; they were in the room where 1 was; in the other room there were some hammocks iaid on the floor with mattresses under them; the men had their own beds, or a part of them had; there were about ten or twelve beds on the floor, perhaps more; as to my own bed, I had no linen sheets or pillow-cases on it; I had my own bed ciotbee; I ilont know whether any one else bad such sheets or pillow cases:! cannot say whether anyone of the mattresses were made of hair; at the hospital I saw a man named Sergeant Dorris, who was allowed a bottle of porter; he was tho only man there, whom I ever saw get anything like that,I never saw any one in the hospital get enyluxuriee, such as sweetmeats and wines;-! would bare observed these things, I think, if they had occurred, as there were sick men all around me. [Here Lieut. M'Laughlix, in an appeal to the Presi dent of the Court, objected to the putting of this last question, on the ground that when a similar queatioa was put by him to another witness, the Judge Aavooate objected to it; but the Court overruled it ] The largest of the canoes carried nine men, but there were not over six or seven of these in use; the majority of the canoes carried five or six men; when I first saw the canoes that arrived at Itdian Key it was about a month alter they had been brought there; some of them were in very good order, but they all had to be worked on, and to have some repairs before they could go on tho expedition; some of them were split open at ihe bottom for two or three yards; 1 think they were split open by the sun; the most of them were split open; upon their arrival on the island 1 helped to unload them, end some of them were split then; the condition of the last cargoos I saw, which was about a month after their arrival, was bad; they were piled up under a shed and not uaed while I was there; I suppose there was about one hundred in this lot; of the whole number of canoes at Indian Key there were, I suppose,in general use, about thirty; there were about thirty canoes used upon our expedition; 1 taw some of the army canoes; they were rether better fitted out than ours. By Lieat. McLauohlix.? 1 was sick in the hospital on Indian Key, in September or October, 1841, both times; 1 went in the expedition of the everglades in October, 1841, with Lieutenant McLaughlin; I joined the schooner Flirt in or about the last of December, 1841, somewhere near Christmas; I don't think all the mariners were on the expedition at one time; they were not; there were at one time, upwards of ninety mariners altogether on the Key, and out of their uumher about seventy or eighty were on an expedition; of those that were left behind, c n this occasion, there were some carpenters belonging to the mariners working one house, and others siclt in the hospital; on some oftbe expeditions there were only twenty, or thirty, or forty mariners; there were not so many mariners there on the last occasion as there were on the first; some came out afterwards; i was sick in the hospital erected by Lieut. McLaughlin; there were two rooms occupied by the sick during the time that I was there; this is the hospital I described the beds being in; there was hut one surgeon who attended me both times during my sickness; it was, I think, either Dr. Hastings or Dr. Hopkinson, I don't know which; the carpenters were working on a house at a corner ol the island; it was occupied, I think, afterwards, as a clerk's office; I went ashore alter it was fixed and signed my account* there; they had been working on the hospital before 1 went on tho expedition to the everglade*. A. O. Dattox was hate re-called, and asked several questions, which were of no material importance. By request of Lieutenant McLauohlix, Wm. Peak was here called and sworn. By Lieut. McLauqhu*? I was attached to the Florida expedition, and acted a* captain's clerk; tba vessel that twos in was the schooner Wave, Lieut. Herndon, who waa the captain; I was in the expedition between ele ven and twelve months, from Sep'omhor, 1841, to Aiiy. 1843; I have no reason to believe that Lieut. McLaughlin ever attempted to defraud the government, or use any collusion whereby to effect that object; I never paid away any Patriot or Mexican doubloons; I paid nothing but Spanish doubloons) all my weakly return, of proyl siont expended were handed in to Lieut. McLaughlin, and were accurate and true; I was on Indian Key about one month; 1 messed in the quarters that were furnish od to the officers there, end the provisions were furnish ed by myself; I never knew of hospiul stores havlnc been used by any others than the sick; if there had, I think I should have known it; I never saw any wasted, kc in the care of the public property on Indian Key. By the Juno* Advocate?I never saw any Patriot or Mexican dollars paid by any one connected with the iiuadron; Mr. < ?eorge Center occupied a house which ,e said he built himself, out of his own means; I have >10 further evidence other than his own word for It, that he built it at his own expense. I hare trequently been in and about thoh spital?that la, the offlcera' part of it; I never dined with tne surgeons; I have never examin ed the canoes, any more than to measure the length and >readth of some of them; 1 saw one vessel arrive at Indian Key with canoes; the most of them were in good irder, and some ol them were considerably split, I be lieve there were some canoee piled up under a shed vhich were not used; there may have been twenty or thirty so piled up; soma ol them hed, to the best or my belief, been in service?not ell.
