Mpirltunl Itetlrtiee?Keletlre Value of Halni* and Sinners. our esteemed and ancient f riend, Colonel Webb, of the church militant, entered the other day into a verv curious nnd philosophical analysis of the vote on die case of Bishop Onderdonk, at the Episcopal Convention,which recently assembled in the church dedicated to the seer of Patiuos, in this city. The fruits of fills subtle analysis were given to the world ot s tints nnd sinners, in an urticle which was re markably philosophical, spiritual, mathematical and astounding. The "|ij- :t of the Colonel is to establish the propo sition that the von in question was actually a so l-inn derision of if! the holiness and godly elements of the Episcopal Church, adverse to the Bishop, and entil"' !y opposed to any future effort to reinstate Inni in the chair of the Episcopate. In order to tn ke good this very important principle, Colone) Webb lias r< course to a process of reasoning, singu larly ingenious, and yet very philosophical, and based on principles of spiritual mathematics, which no man who acknowledges the power and efficacy oi grace, can for a moment venture to call in ques tion This process will be best understood by giving the Colonel's article, and indeed the obvious impor tance of the new principles of analysis thus evolved and applied, render it imperative upon us to give to them the vast publicity of our journal. Hare is the singular, admirable, profound, acute, ingenious argument;? The sentiment of the Episcopal Church respecting the possibility of the tuture restoration of Bishop Onder donk to Ids functions with any prospect of usefu'neas, is very clearly made out by a tabular statement in the JProlmtant ' hunhmaa oi last Satuiday. It h iving been claimed by the out and out advocate, of the Bishop that the result of the late Diocesan Conven tion must be looked upon as favorable to him, because in ttier the vote proposed by Judge Oakley nor that by Dr. Wainwlight could be carried, the Pro'ntnnt Church mini meet, that issue by an analysis of the Jay votes, which shows these results Communicants. aod g nerol I M lav <lel<?s;:\tes. voting in the Contributions. normative, represent 7,313 $59 gOO 41 lay delegate*. voting in the negt'ive, represent 4 S74 $19/150 When it is understood that etch delegation, without reference to the size of the parish or congregation ly the Protestant Churchman, of showing what the votes ac tually represent, in number of commtiuicants and in con tribution to -htticli purposes, seems entirely fair and de cisive. A singlo instance will prove it?Grace Church. N. V , voting m the affirmative,shows 375 communicants tin 1 $I8 '0 ol annual contribution; whilo Grace Church, ' 1'rftttsville votin gin the negative shows 8 communicants and $5 35 of I'onti (tuitions It it obvious their influence on such a que-lion cannot be equal, although their votes are. It is very justly said by the Protestant Churchman that thi so statistics ''effectually settle the question as to the restoration of the Bishop to ttie eueicise of his episco pal f ii lions in this diocese by showing the solemn be lief arid conviction of a largo majority that he cannot be reinstated u ith any piospect of usefulness to the Church. Of the clerical vote this analysis is given ; the vote s'oo I Ayes 44. Nays 76, on one occasion ; on the other the nay a weie only 08. J'h. .tyrs comprise d 39 Hectors, 1 Representing 3 Missionaries, | 5 J63 Communicants, 8 Ass't Ministers, 1 43 748 diocesan and general 4 Teachers, J Contributors. 41 The Vuy? comprised 53 H" ctors, j Representing 13 \lis>ion?rles, I 3.194 Communicants, 5 A?s't Ministers, ]? $14,036 diocesan and general 6 PiofestiNors and I Contributions. Teachers, J 76 Here rgaln it appears that in still greater dispropor tion the l.irger clerical vote represented the smaller fraction ot clerical members and clerical contributions? tossy nothing of the nume out missionaries dependent lor their stations on the bishop, and the half dozen pro fe-sois and tc-acheis. who represent no congrrgatioi s at nil, and uhoMi moral weight, tliertfeie, in u questionut which the influence is to he felt by congregations and perishes, is virtually null in tin- face of such a demonstration as this of the real s'ate of fe- ling in the diocese, the pertinacity of those who s-till lasisftnat the bishop s le-ignuliou should uot be csported nor desired, seems anyihing but logical or christian. Now this all seems very fair, very cogent, very irresistible But after a very attentive examination ol the process of reasoning employed, we believe that we have been able to detect a fatal error, which completely upsets all the conclusions uttenipted to be drawn from these spiritual statistics. The Colonel lakes it for granted, that all the communi cants?all ihe professing sons and daughters of the holy mother church, are of equal value?of equal weight?of equal moral importance. This is the fatal error. But let us proceed cautiously, and with that thoughtful and careful deliberation, which the delicacy of this abstruse problem render necessary in order to its sound and just solution. One star differeth from another in glory. That, we be lieve, is an axiom that will not be de nied One oyster contains more gelatinous sub stance thau another?will the Colonel deny that!? It he do we give him an authority?Downing's Re ports, vol. LXV1I, sec, 4. p 22, 23. Now let us pro c >ed. On the sume principles, one saint is of great er value than another. Is not this a clear establish* ed principle? It is repeatedly asserted in the Scrip tures, and illustrated in a variety of methods. Now we think our readers begin to see daylight on this subject. May not the eight communicants of Grace Church, Prattsville, far outweigh the two hundred and seventy-five communicants of Grace Church, New York? That is even supposing that the whole batch are saints! There again comes uji another delicate question. However, we do not i deem it necessary to the practical purpose of the ar- | gument to enter into that. But we insist upon ii I that the saints in the country are assuredly much ! more valuable in this statistical analysis than the saints in the town. The city is full of corrupting in fluence. The sons of men,with their daughters, and wives of their bosoms, go to the elegant church in the city more to "show ofl," and to thank God that they are not like the poor publicans; but in the vil lage and country church, far away from the crowd ed and wicked marts and great cities of the earth, the worshippers go to commune with heaven. Who will venture to say that these same eight saints ot Prattsville, on whom Colonel Webb places so low a value, are sufficient to outweigh alfthe crowds who throng the fashionable churches of New York on a fine Sunday? It will thus be seen that we have completely de moliahed the specious reasoning of the Courier, and that after all, the question as to the decision of the saints on the case of Bishop Onderdonk, stands pretty much as it did before the Colonel applied to l* his ingenious system of spiritual statistics Head Quarters of Wit and Humor?Hull, the keeper of the elegant and cozy new establish ment m West Broadway, called "the Mutual," is absolutely run down with customers, and lus place is now the head quarters of wit, humour and philo sophy in the fifth ward. Every one who goes there feels inspired the very moment he enters, even be fore touching anythit.g at the bar. The gr??M? loci ?the genius of the place is wit i:self. This corres ponds with the philosophy of j*>etry,as illustrated in the biographies of distinguished poets. I is well known that Burns was full of the spirit of poetry in a higher degree, when wandering on the banks of a certain stream, than in any other circumstances. Addison, too, it is recorded had an extraordinary How of wit and humour in Ins favorite tap-room in l.ondnn. Amongst those celebrated haunts of pt?e iry and genius, and wit, we are now fairly justified in ranking "The Mutual."

The office . of public printer to Concrete is beginning to attract | a great deal of attention in cohnecuon with the i name of Mr. Ritchie, who is the President'* candi date for that important post. We need not say that the office is a most important one, and confers npon the possessor a position of great influence and strength?an influence not only as respect* the ad- | ministration and distribution of offices, but as respects the regulation of the succession to the em pire, and the determination of the next Presidency. Mr. Ritchie i* undoubtedly by tar the most fortni- 1 dable candidate at present in the field. He was placed in hi* present position by Mr. Polk himself He will have all the influence of the administration in his favor. Every elfort will be made to secure for him the priniership. But there is a combination of influence* and elements at work that may defeat him, unless the greatest care and caution be ob served on his part. One of the chief elements o' this combination springs from the discontent of Blair and Rives, and the remains of the old Kitchen Cabinet, removed by President Polk when he reached Washington. The Giobt, as a newspaper, was never of much account unless in a mere party point of view. Even it* congressional reports were furnished in a slovenly and imperfect manner The Union possesses, in a far superior degree, the element* of a popular newspaper. It is more com ; prehensive in its character, although weaker in cer- | tain points that have vast influence over the votes of ; Congress. In fact, the Union is one of the most singular combinations of good sense?folly? i solidity?frivolity?modern enterprise and skill? I twaddling?science?wisdom?that we have yet ! seen presented by any newspaper. Yet we like the Union infinitely better than we did the Globe. It is certainly the best paper we have seen in Wash- 1 mgton. We are decidedly in favor of Mr. Ritchie j being made printer ,in opposition to all his antago nists. Lectures oif China.?Dr. Hernisz resumes his lectures on China to-morrow evening, at the Socie ty Library. The recent lectures of Fletcher Web ster and Caleb Cushing, together with the rapidly augmenting interest felt in the extension of our com mercial relations with China, have directed a great deal of public attention to the novel and interesting j subjects of study and investigation thus develo. j ped. One of the most curious facts developed in these discourses is, that there is less difference between the autocracy of China and the democracy of the United States than is generally imagined. In every country there must be a despotism somewhere, as well as a democracy. In this country the despotism i thus far is in the mob, and sometimes it is wielded by the President, as in the case of Andrew Jackson. It has not yet a settled place. The democracy is also very flourishing in this country. Every one has the utmost liberty of speech and opinion. Now , from the developements made of the condition and i state of society in China, it appears that for a very long period, the despotism has been settled and maintained in one quarter. Yet even there, there is a public opinion to which it must be responsible in some degree?a species of democracy in an empire. Indeed in a variety of aspects there is a resemblance between the state of society in the United States j and in China, which almost astonishes us. In the religion, philosophy, morals and literature of both j nations, making all due allowance for difference of j customs and habits, there are many strong points of > resemblance. Every religion is tolerated in China just as with us, and in both countries there are op posing sects in abundance. This is, however, a subject which obviously me rits a careful and extended investigation. We may return to it as Dr. Hernisz proceeds with his erudite and valuable discourses. Private Theatrical-, and Opera.?We under- i stand that if we do not have Italian opera in this city during the next season, there will be a private nrrang?^ anmp n th* laehinnalilf* and that some of the best operas 01 the day will be performed. Probably some of those persons who got up the private theatricals in New Brighton are I concerned in this movement. We have heard a good deal abont the characters and parties in rela. tion to this matter, and we shall, in due time, give fujther intelligence. Madame Augusta.?This very fascinating artist, who was such an immense and universal favorite when in this country a few years ago, makes her appearance at the Park on Tuesday night in the Bayadere. She is as beautiful as ever, and prepared to achieve new and more brilliant triumphs. Her style is elegant and graceful in the extreme. We hare no doubt that an overflowing house will wel come this favorite artist on her fe-appearance amongst us. Steamship Caledonia.?This steamer is how in her tourteenth day. Naval ?U J^store ship Lexington arrived at Pensacola on thi^Oth from Araasas Bay, Hnd will sail for Vera Cruz as soon as she obtains her freight id stores and water for the squadron now lying there. Much credit is due to the commander of the L. for the care and despatch used in unloading at Aransas B iy.^ Tne immense amount ot ammu nition, muskets, Sec , which cpmposed her freight, was unshipped upon the beach in the short space of two working days; and we understand that not on>* musket was found to be injured. U S. steamer (Jen Taylor was despatched from ihe Pensacola Navy Yard, on the 21st, to the Black water river, with water tanks, capable of contain ing thirty thousand gallons, which is expected will be delivered in two days alongside the L.

Our previous latest dates ware of the l'2th. The most interesting news from the new Stats is relative to the vote on annexation, the new consti tution, Jce. It appears that there was not a full expression of opinion on the question of annexation, on the 13th ult. Tite Texitns were so unanimous on this point, that they did not poll nearly so large a vote as was at first anticipated. In Houston, the vote for annex ation was 211; against it, 44. In GalveBton, for it, 270; against, 111. And the poll, probably, run through the Slate at the same rate. [From Houston Telegraph, Oct. 15.] Several gentlemen have lately arrived from Corpus Christi; and they represent the health of the United States troops at that post to be excellent. There are over three thousand troops now at or near that post, and scarcely a single soldier is dangerously sick. Great numbers of stranger* from all section* of Texas and from the United States, are congregating at Corpus Christi Many of them are dissipated ; and the grog shops are crowded to overflowing. A Mexican, supposed to be a spy, was captured near the camp a short time since. lie had formerly held a commission in the Mexican army. He was detained a short time in custody ; but as no tears were entertained that bis representations could do any harm, he was permitted to return to tho Rio Grande The President has promoted Capt. Hays to the rank of Major, and Lie it. Gillespie has been promoted to the ? auk of captain. Two companies of Rangers, under Captaioa Price and McCulloch, have lately been organiz ed, and it is probable they will soon bo mustered into sorvice on the frontier. The agents appointed by the government to conclude a treaty with the Comanches, met these Indians on the lAth uft. at Torrey's trading house. Pabayuca, Mocba chuka, and several others who represented themselves as principal chiefs of the Comanches, were prescut at the council. This, we believe, was the fi'th attempt that has been made by ourgovernment to conclude a formal ticaty with tbi perfl lious tribe; and the Indians appear ed as timid and suspicious as at the first council Com paratively few of their wurriors attended. When they liist arrived at the truJing house, they could not be in- j duced to encamp near the house; and th-i government Agents were compelled to go out and encamp with thera to gain thoir conddence. They evidently feared that they were to be punishnJ for the outrages committed near Austin a few months sinco. The agents, however, succeeded in gaining their confidence so far, that at the closo of the council the chiefs came forward nnd declar ed that they were now assured that the white men were I the fneuds of the Comanches, and expressed a deter mination on their part to maintain a permanent peace with our settlers Wo place little reliance upon their I professions. It is not a little singular that about the same period this council was held, a party of Mexican traders from the Rio Grande came into Corpus Christi, and reported that they had met with a body of two hun dred Comanche warriors, who permitted the traders to pass unmolested, and informed liiem that they were go ing to Matamoras, agreeably to tho iuvitatien of the Mex ican officers, and that they intended to take part with the Mexicans againat the Americans. It will bo remem bered that at a former council held with these In dians, they expressed dissatisfaction because the agents of our government gave them so few presents. Perhaps they think by making overturns to the Mexican Government thoy can obtain a large quantity of pre sents, more valuable than any that they have yet re ceived from us. There is little probability, however, that they ever can become the faithful nllies of the Mexi- ! cans ; for they have been accustomed from their infancy I to look on Mexicans as their natural enemies : aud it would be as difficult for them to act in concert, as for wolves and deer to dwell harmoniously together. The j military power ot this tribe haa been long since broken, I and it is a matter of but little consequence whether they > i remain at peaco or at war with our Government. We have been not a little amused recently, to notice the exaggerated accounts published in the northern pap rs. I respecting the formidable numbers end the prowess of I this perfidious and i mbeciie tribe. Some of those papers j represent.' the Comanches as mustering from 16,000 to ' I JO,000 warriors, and as able to cope, man to man, with 1 the 1 American cavalry. The Comanches, as far back as 18C6, could not concentrate at any cue point more than 1 1000 warriors, and the tribe has been so much reduced j by constant war with the Mexicans and Texians within | the last live years, that they have not been able to muster 1 more than 400 or 600 warriors in any of their expeditions. Theirwarriors are generally- armed v, ith bows and arrows I and lances, and aro withal so cowardly, that they are sel- I dom or never known to attack a force of the Texians, even when they have the advantage of numbers of three to one. Two companies of dragoons could traverse the whole country occupied by the Comanches with impunity. The two tribes, Lipans and Tonka was, aro preparing to abandon their late encampments on the tribu taries of tho Uaudalope and San Antonio, and intend re moving high up on the Colorado, to occupy a portion of country ia'ely granted to tbem by the Comanches ? ] Many of the wurriors of these tribes hare intermarried j with the Comanches. Ths presence of the U. 8. army on the western fron tier has caused the price cf piovisious to advance to au unprecedented extent in that section. At the last ac counts, corn was selling at Aran-as and Corpus Christi at one dollar and fifty cents a bushel?sweet potatoes at the same rate, and very few could be obtained. The army is stationed at such a distance tiom our dense set brought from New tfrieans'it a cheaper nlslSta'&iy can be procured from any of the settlements of western Texas. Beet, however, can always be procurred in our j western counties at a cheaper rate than it can be obtain, ed perhaps in any part of the United btates The com missaries ol the army will have little difficulty iu pio , curing an abundant supply of beef in any ol our west ern settlements at a cent to a cent and a half a pound ? and the beel trom the Itio Grande cau doubtless be ob taiaed at a still lower rate. [From the Houston Star, Oct. 16] On the South bank of the St. Oabriel, in Milam coun ty, about fifteen miles above the continence of that liver with the Little river, there are many relics of an an cient town or village. No houses are standing; but the suifaceof the ground tor an extent of several acies, is strown with stones and large rocks, some of which have evidently been hewn lor building stones. They are strewn about in such a manner as to leave no doubt that they formerly formed the walls of buildings which are now destroyed. A large dam formed by these stones extends nearly across tho river, which at this point is about a bundled feet wide. This dam is sixty feet long and five or six feet thick. The river has washed away u portion which formerly connected it with the opposite hank. A small ditch extends from the river above the dam along the edge of the hill which sk rts the valley in whicn the village is situated, and appears to have been used for the pur|iose of irrigation, whether these ruins were formerly tho habitations of Spaniards 01 ot the aborigines of the country, wo have been unable to ascertain. We consider it quite probable that this place was formerly occupied as a missionary or mining sta tion by the Spaniards, shortly after the conquest ol Mexico by Cortex. Sporting Intelligence. Thi.

R. 8c6ti'? Richauo III.?This ilogant and popular establishment, at one# tha pride and boast of our city, wan again crowded to overflowing last evening by a highly respectable and discriminating audience, for the purpose of ?? itnessing the performance of Shskspeate'e "Richard III." by John R. Scott. The name of Mr Scott has been long before tha public as a candidate for dramatic honors? and the loud aud judi cious applause bestowed on his performances, together with the frequent and unsolicited notices of the public press, hare rendered him somewhat celebrated in the arduous ami responsible pith he has chosen. A more versatile actor is nowhere to be found. In melo-dramatic characters he is without a rival, while his personation ot Richard, last night, stamps him as a Shakspearian of the first order. Tho pel formance throughout was charac terized by good taste, deep study, and close attention to the secret springe ot human action. The soliloquy in the first act was finely rendered, and the wooing scene with Lady Anne, well conceived aud capitally executed. The gnawings of conscience beautifully depicted in the latter scenes?and the death, such as that of a usur per, murderer aud traitor, might be supposed to be. The dearth of dramatic talent now-ai-days has caused the elevation of several minor performers into a rank and station far above their real marits, while old favor ites and sterling actors, who have keen long before the public, have been ottentimei deserted for the moment, Rnd forgotten in the furtr created by the first appear ance of some fresh novelty. The American stage how ever possesses several arli$lei of eminent ability. The fame of Edwin Forrest aa a tragedian is wide spread? he has reaped laurels in this and other countries. Mr Murdook, a promising young actor, hat also re cently appeared at the Park. He was well received, and sustained himself in the arduous and difficult characters selected with considerable success. In comparing Mr. Murdoch with JohnR. Scott we must in all siucerity award the palm of excellence to the lat ter. Mr Murdock'e acting it characterized by a great deal of pathos, eloquence and refinement of manner, but he lacks the inten?eiiess,, enthusiasm and power of hie distinguished rival Both are men of talent, and both have had opportunities for improvement?but while the "point" of Scott is always clear, effective and well defined. Murdock's is often lost in the too studied manner assumed for the nonce. Mr. Murdoch ia nevertheless an excellect actor, and undoubtedly in the course of time may arrive at the high eminence he seeks. Mr. Scott has already obtained a position, and his name ranks among the brightest ornaments which the Ameri can stage possesses, and will favorably compare witli those of transatlantic celebrity. Both are self-made men, and, therefore, deserve success. The public ever appreciate talent, and in the long run genius receives its just reward. Modern Manic.?llerr Alexander, tho famous German Magician, has taken Niblo's Theatre, and will commence to-morrow evening with a series of his Deautiful and sci eutific illusions. This gentleman has been in this coun try for some time, during which he has traversed the en tire length and breadth of the Union, exhibiting in every town and city. He has been received with immense ap plause,and the testimonisds of his skill that have appeared in the varioua papers, would fill a moderate sized vo lume. His performances are perfectly free from the charlatanry of some who style themselves magicians, and are divested of all low vulgarity and buffoonery, for in addition to his wonderful quickness in mutters of mere slight of hand, he has called iii the aid of chemistry, and I with it ho gives some of the beautiful experiments, , which,to those who aro unacquainted with the sciences, realty savor of magic- Pneumatics, optics, and natural philosophy are also used by him. In fact, an attendance ' on one of his soirrtt will give more real insight into the beauties of science, than can be elsewhere obtained du ring the samo time, aud it has the advantage of combin ing amusement with learning. All heads oi families and schools should visit Jlerr Alexander, not only onco, but often; moreover, all who ore anxious to pass an evening not only with ploasure, but instruction, ought to avail themselves of this opportunity. The Ciieney Family.?This family, who made such a successful first appearance at the Society Library, two er three weeks ago, will sing again to-morrow evening at Niblo's Saloon. They have been joined by their fourth brother from Vermont, aud will introduce several new pieces of their own composition, among others, the ' Song of the Vermonters," consecrated in the memory of every American, by the fact, that the famous old white horse, Allen, of revolutionary fame composed it. Festiyal Concert. U. C Hill will give a splendid festival concert on the 10th inst., at the Tabernacle.

Pleasant Autumn Amusement?Cowhidino?Yester | day morniDg the Broadway pedestrians, who chanced to be near the corucr of Barclay street, were somewhat surprised by seeing one gentlemau seize another, who was passing there, end apply a cowhide to his buck in a very decided and energetic manner. . The cowhider^is n clerk in a large house down town, while the cowlnded is a broker well known in Wall street. It seems that i there had been some previous difficulty, and that on Fri day night, as the clerk was retiring from his business, the broker attacked and beat him in a most unmerciful manner, aid this cowhiJing was intended as a nunish ment. The bioker sued for mercy, but the clerk laid on most lustily, until, by the interference of trieuds, the af fray was stopped. We suppress the names otthe parties 1 at present Broadway as a Phomknaue.?Broadway during the past week has prescuied a brilliant, animated, and niter- ' esting spectacle.

AnothirRiot among Fibkmkn.?On Friday night an alarm ol Die was given iu Brooklyn, originating, as is al leged, from a light seen far hoiow Red Hook, but actual ly, us is believed, for the purposo of giving a parcel of rowdy firemen an opportunity to indulge in their belli gerent propensities. Companies Nos I and 6 engaged ' MOO I " " against each other in a disgraceful fight, which resulted iu some of their men being dreadfully beaten. This riot ought to receive the especial attention ol the Common Council, which meets to-morrow evening.

This morn ing 45J. afternoon 5eK Altogether the season haa been extraordinarv both in North Amerioa and in Europe-, successions of wet and dry weather and great variations of temperature. In this part ot North America we have had slight falls of auow to the southward, at Niagara and Montreal, while at Quo bee, where the tops of the mountains, on the north and south shores are usually whitened with snow by the middle of October, none has yet appearrd. The effect of the frost, succeediug a period of wet and warm weather, has produced an extiaordiuary effect ou the leaves of trees which are the latest in shedding their foliage. The lombardy poplars, lilacs, apple trees, wil lows and acacias, are ettU green, but the ieavee partly dried and shrivelled up, by the frost. Some patches of fall wheat sown on the lMh of September appear unin jured. What course the season may follow heraaftar is of courss uncertsio, but it is probabls at this lats period the next fall will be snow, and that It may lia ou the ground for the winter, which, if we arc to believe a French Phi losopher, is to be a sevare o e, in Europe at least. The markets have lelt the influence of the season and its effects on prices in Europe. At present large sup plies art brought to Quebec by the steamboats from Mon treal. From tne diminished production of this part of tne country, there is reaaoa to suppose that prices will rise after the close of the navigation. There are loud complaints of the extravagant wa~a* demanded hy laborers, and the disposition of soma ol them, rather to live in idleness and dissipation, than woik. This cannot be prevented so long as they cau afford it It is suggested that some of them have got a fancy that they are te be provided for out of tne large funds contributed for charitable purposes. It is to be supposed at least, that It will be a rule to afford uo as sistance to any families which have peraons bound to provide for them, who are in good health aud able to work; as yet there is plenty of work for all aucb, and generally at much higher - ages than usual. Some erroneous notions seem to have taken root ou the subject of the distribution of the contributions of etiaritatiie peraons for the relief of the sufferers hy the late Ares; notions which have given rise to things very unseemly.and quito at variance with the spirit of charity which, in its liberalities, " blesseth the giver as well as the receiver."?

Bolt waa in type, wis have received the loliowiug letter from Greene, which, in justice to the family of Mrs. B,, we ciieerlully pub lish:? Mr. Lkal My attention has been called to an article in the last Republican, in relation to tha unlortuuate Mrs. Bolt, in which you say " she lived with her hue band on Johnson's farm with the Baxters also after her disappearance 'that search was made for her, but aa she was u woman ol suspicious reputati ?n, it was gen erally believed that she had gone off with some male acquaintance." In the above, you have done great in justice to the dead (unquestionably) and wouuded the feelings of the Irienda ol Mra. B 1 have known Mrs. B. several years, and never heard her charactei .for chastity or otherwise, questioned. In the spring of '44, Mr. B. and lamily left Johnson's farm in Greene, and removed ou to another of his in Triangle. At thia time the Bax ters resided at Smithville or Genegauslet. Soon after this removal, it was rumored that a complaint was to be made before the Grand Jury against a citizen of our vil luge, for a rape on Mrs. B Tnis was succeeded hy a notice that Mrs. B. had become a maniac, end in the night had eloped. A diligent search whs made by hun dieds, aud no trace of tier could be fouud. Sntne sus pected that Johnson had either caused her deatb or se creted her, arid others, that her husband had murdered her. The suspicions ngainst Bolt have been iiicieuting until recently, in proiecuting the complaint agalust Baxter. I have had occasion to examine Mr Bolt und two daugliteis on oath, in wiiich they profess to give a true account of .Mrs. B.'s troubles aud her strange dhap peaiauce. Dr. t'urple was also sworn as to statemmita made by Mrs B iu relation to the treatment she had re ceived from Johnson, which testimony 1 am not a* liberty to ..publish w ithout the advice of the " people's committee," who are the best judges of what ought to be kept irom the puulic. Newspaper publishers should be cautious wnat they priut, us no relianco can be placed ou tne atones afloat in relation to these painful occurrences.
