Tli' action of Congress, in proposing the organiza tion ol the Oregon country into a territory ol the 1 tiled States, is now one of the ino.-t important movent- nts ot the day?arising from us intimate connection with our foreign relations. Upon the wise, masterly and patriotic legislation of Congress, scrupulously leg rding the laitli ol treaties and the public laws of nations, will depend the question of peace or war, as well as the honor mid interest of the Anv ncan < loverument. This opinion is ex pre. ?: d m every quarter, on the subject, and accord ingly, we see a variety ol ideas put forth regarding the recent movements m Congress, having in view the organization ot the Oregon country into a ter ritory. In order to comprehend the subject properly, and !<> place belore otir readers every piece ot informa tion on the matter, wt publish in this morning's p iper, n (Mrrect copy of the British law lor the or :uitizi i ol that country, and also the proposed bill, introduced by Mr. Douglass into the House ol Representatives, to carry out the rights and inter ests of ilie United States in the same region. It is contended by those who are opposed to the occupation of Oregon, that the treaty existing be tween this country and England, wouid be violat?d I'v the passage of any such law as the one intro duced by Mr Douglass, or the passage of any reso lutiun, claiming the whole of that territory, Irom 'lie I2ad degree ot latitude to 54 -W. Vow, on ? carelul consideration ot the subject, we are disposed to come to a different conclusion. The passage of such resolutions by the two houses of Congress, claiming the whole of the territory, i merely the assertion ot the same claim put forth by Mr. Buchanan to Mr Pakenharw and the British Government, in the recent diplomatic correspon d"nce that passed between them. The Congress <>f the I nited States has a perfect right to express t similar opinion, in the same forcible language/on the rights which the nation possesses to the whole <>i ihe Oregon territory, which the Executive de partment itself has. And it will be recollected that 'here is sufficient precedent in our legislation here tofore, for such a course ot conduct. Duriug the pendency of the negotiations on the North Eastern boundary, the Senate passed resolutions declaring the wnole territory as being the property of the United States; ;md Mr. Webster, on an important occasion, declared that lie would be re.idy, "on the next Fourth ot July," to take possession of the whole ol the territory in dispute. So far as the re solutions introduced into the House have declared the American right to the whole of the Oregon ter ritory to be inherent in our government, Congress has a perfect, indefeasible, and undoubted right to pass them, without giving umbrage to any govern ment, or violating any treaty existing between the two countries. Thus much on this point. With n 5]>ect to the law introduced by Mr. Doug iass, for the organization of that country into a ter ritory, we believe that there can be equally as little objection as to any resolution which contains the assertion of the right of our government to the whole of it. Look at the law passed by the Uriti-li Parliament, and which has been in ope r ition in Oregon for nearly twenty-five years past? ? ompare its provisions with those of the law pro posed by Mr. Douglass. The law introduced by this member Iroin the West, simply proposes, that after declaration of the hbsolute right of th* United "Elites to the whole of the territory, and a year's notice Bhall have been given to England, to extend the ordinary civil and criminal jurisdiction of the Iowa courts over it, with a provision not to interfere with British subjects, or to violate in any degree the terms of the treaty between .he two countries, according to a very liberal and common sense con struction. P.ut we have no doubt a small propor tion ot members will attempt to raise an opposition to the pa sage of this ltw, under the cry that it will, if passed, be equivalent to a declaration of war by the United States against EngUnd ; but we have no doubt the cry w ill produce no effect on Congress, and that the bill, as we have reason to believe, will pass both Houses, with as much rapidity, and with as overwhelming a majority, as did the resolutions tor the annexation of Texas. ine proposed law provides tor giving the neces sary notice, according to the treaty. Alter that is done, there will coine up the organization of the territory under the law, and that can be proceeded with at leisure, under the authority and sanction of the American government. The British govern ment has no more right to object to such a law?in deed, leas?than we had to object to the British law of 1821, which has been in operation ever tince. When that period arrives when the law of Congress will have gone into operation, then will come the time for further deliberation on the i?art of our Go vernment, relative to the future destiny of Oregon. What that may be, it is of no use to be arguing about now. Let every year take care of itself. At pre ent, our government has completely the advantage over the British government, in all these negotiations and all these movements, and we have no doubt will retain it. Another Revolution in Mkxico.?The next ac counts from Mexico will be very interesting, givmg, probably, the particular of another revolution in lhat unhappy country. By the 1 ist accounts, Baredes was 011 his way to the city of Mexico, for the purpose of putting down President Herrera. These jnilitary chieftains of Mexico, have no idea that the present men in power should touch any of the large amount pro posed to be given by the United States tor Cali fornia, without their having a chance of fingering the plunder It is said that the pretext for a revo lution will be the disposition manifested by the pre sent Mexican government, to make peace with the United States. Yet, no doubt, the same men, when they get into |>ower, will be the firtt to renew the negotiations, and try to get as much as they can " tor Upper California, or lor u new boundary of Texas. In the mean time, it is to be exacted that the French and English intriguers will make themselves nu-iy. The " man in the white hat," is on his way to Vera Cruz, and the next news will be interenting. riMPLKro.N's Concert kor TiiK Boor ?This eve ii rig, the great Templeton Concert, exclusively lor the benefit of the prominent charities of this city, i kes place at the Tabernacle. The number of tick 11? already sold is considerable?far exceeding the nguine lio|>es oi the most enthusiastic and earnest mpportera of this excellent and praiseworthy effort A'o doutit not, therefore, but the Tabernacle will be thronged by the fashionable, the charitable, the be i 'volent, and the musical, who, in gratifying their 0 vn tastes, minister to the wants, and relieve the II ueusitiea of the poor, afflicted and distressed. The 1 iies?God bless them!? ill, of course, be there, to impart additional lustre to the scene, which will idotib'.edly, be one of great brilliancy and splendor W?* would recommend our merchants, who have ever ! ? en celebrated lor their charity, to conie forward ' I tills occasion, and purchase tickets lor their ? < rks. They would thus be jierfornung an act of ? nevolence, and at the mine time giving pleasure t< ihose in their employ. .'onokkssional. Movement*.?Amongst die ar rivals from the south yesterday, at the Astor, are the H< i Daniel Webster, the Hon Thomas Hutler mm hi d the lion S Jnrnngin, of'IVnnesxep. The Mew York Herald In Kurope. The New York Herald api*ars to give a great deal of trouble to many people, both in the United Stales and in Kurope. Since the lost arrival from Europe, we have been informed, through a private source, that the terrible Ijotnion Quarterly Review is coming forth with a powerful article, in order to auuihilate the Sen- York llerald, and destroy its inlluence, both in the new and old world. It appears, in fact, that the great litterateurs and statesmen, both of England and France, have found out, all at once, the awful position in which we are placed, and the terrible influence exercised by the Herald, not only upon the people of America, but also upon the old world. This, indeed, is a droll thing. It seems, how" ever, to be the general idea prevailing in the minds o! those who have formerly fulminated their anathe m is against the Herald, through the columns of the Foreign Quarterly, and who are now preparing to annihilate us by the great London Quarterly, that it is necessary lor the peace of the world to stop the progress of the New York Herald. Thus it may be seen that the big and little potatoes of the age are equally affected with ihe dry rot, through the influence of the New York Herald. Among these potatoes there is one John, or James, O'Sullivan, who is the editor of a small paper pub lished in this city. This unfortunate individual complains, in a most melancholy tone, that the New York Herald is actually considered in Europe, as the organ of the American government; and that its views?its doctrines?its statements, are regarded us most probably emanating from the inner circle of the compact head of Mr. Polk himself, compre hending also, all the ideas and views moving in the secret recesses of his Cabinet, from Mr Buchanan round to Cave Johnson. Aston ishing discovery, indeed! But this is net all Mr. Walsh, the American Consul at Paris, and cor real ondent of the National Intelligencer, is also ter ribly annoyed to find the " hyperboles''(as he is pleased to call them) of the New York Herald, prc dtice such a tremendous impression oil both sides of the British Channel us to increase the roughness of the waves and weather. The amiable Mr. Walsh is unfortunately afflicted with a hardness of hear ing, and hence he cannot know all the noise which the Herald is making, with his own ears ; and pro bably, therefore, gets his intelligence from some other quarter. Yet it does not seem so surprising that this dignified philosopher, who never thought an original thought in his life, should put forth such as opinion in reference t? the terrible " hyperboles" of the Neto York Herald, when it is seen that all the great Quirterly Reviews of London and Paris are now expected to unite their forces, with a view to annihilate its inHunnce throughout Christendom. Nay, it may be that a session of Parliament will be summoned, and Queen Victoria herself will find it necessary to call the attention of both houses to the terrible inlluence of the Herald, as well as to the frightful disease in the Irish potato. Such is the singular position into which the Herald has been 1'orcrd, both in Euro|>eand Ameri ca, from causes which may be considered the lite rary phenomenon of the present age?even as inex plicable as the disease in the potato. Now, we never professed to be the organ of ihe President?nor of his cabinet?nor of any party? nor of any set of men?nor of any cliqut, in this world, or in the next. We have made it our busi ness and our duty to interpret the aflairs of the day on this continent, as well as 011 the other side of the water, and to give our opinions upon the probable tendency of the age, and the spirit now prevailing in society, and throughout Christendom, on both sides the Atlantic. In pursuing this line of duty? we have endeavoured to find out the secrets of cabinets, and the intentions of statesmen, and so to report them to the world accurately ]f our views and our / redictions regarding Texas, have been considered "hyperboles," as Mr. Walsh denomi nates them, or it they have entitled us to be regard ed as the organ of President Polk, according to Mr. O'Sullivan's statements?these hyperboles, and these views, have now become sober matters of fact, and lose their magnitude and undue impor tance in this respect, by becoming history itself. We shall continue to proceed.in the path we have chosen for ourselves, and pursue the march we have gone on in for the last fifteen or twenty years. If the quarterly journals and all the newspapers, and even if Queen Victoria herself, and the British Parliament shall denounce us, we shall pursue our course, and endeavor to give full and faithful re ports of their sayings und doings, both on papers and potatoes, and leave the issue to the present and to all future time?just as Chancellor Bacon did. Mrsic and the Opera.?During the past two years, almost every operatic troupe, who have vi sited this country, or have established themselves here, have failed most signally; sometimes from one cause, sometimes another. The French Company was, in fact, the only one which met with any real success. The Italian Opera, alter getting fairly started, was entirely broken up by the petty rivalries and dissen sions among its members. Borghese wanted twice the salary of Pico, and Pico considered her talents as quite equal to those of Borghese, and finally the Opera exploded. Then we Irid the Delcy troupe at the Park, and after one or two nights, it was plainly s?en that they must fail, and they performed their engagement to a " beggarly account of empty boxes." Then the German oj>era was commenced, and for one or two nights bid fair to be successful. But soon it was deserted by the German population, whom it was. supi?osed would be i's chief support ers, and the fashionables did not patronize it at all; and after a few trials, the German Opera was given up us a failure. The Seguin troupe are now at the Park. This troupe possesses some very good voices and good actors, und are on the whole, equal to any Knglish trnu]te who have visited this country?but it is plainly to be seen that they will f ill at the Park, un 'ess some different course be tiken from that which they are now pursuing, 8nd wmrh has, in fact, been the cause of the failure of nearly every operatic troupe The Segnin's ar? playing the "Bohemian Girl," an opera which, without [Assessing a very high order of merit?exce t some beautiful airs, has been worn entirely threadbare by rela tion, until its music has become too familiar to the ears of the play-goers This is the cause of the failure of the Opera in this country? the continued reiteration of the *ime opera. A troujie should prepare themselves, before commen cing their performances, with a number of novelties, one to be brought out as soon as the other becomes somewhat worn. Under such an arrangement we should have nodoubt of the success ot the Opera. On Monday night "Amilie" is to be produced nt the Park. This is an opera of considerable merit, but lias been played in New York a threat number of times. The new comic o(iera of "L?on Pasquale" is o be produced during the engagement of the 8e guins. We think this open will have a great run; but it is somewhat strange that the P>irk management did not bring out "Ijon Pasquale" first, as it would have been new, and we have no doubt, successful. Novelty is what is waited and what will succeed. Novelty?novelty?novelty?change?rhange? change?variety?variety?variety, for our people, in opera, music, religion, philosophy, politics, and sausages. That will always take Arr*.M?-r at Sutcim.?We copy the following trom the Bowling Green, Ky , Argu* <f last Katur day?" On last Friday, Mr. < lintori Covington, aged 1 n.neteen yearn, son of Oen. Covington, wns found in his I room nt his father's residence, in the vicinity of this place, having been shot with a musket charged with shot The entire load entered the abdominal region and ranged in the direction of tho should*!*, cutting his lungi. but miraculously avoiding the heart. The young man is in a very critical aud perilous situation, but hopes are en tertained of hiii recovery. All the circumstance* favor the conclusion that the act was nerpetiated by himtslf, \et,on the subject, he obstinately refused to speak ? No cause can be assigned lor the act. He was Juit en- ' taring upon manhood, with bright hopes and flattering prospects ahead ; having at his command all that the abundance of this world's goods could bestow. His fa ther is amongst the wealthiest of otirelliteni, und all his connexion* are highly respectable Amateck Tiikatricai.s?Another Attempt? We understand that the theatrical utnateur troujv, who p?n>etrated the murder of the amiable and ut ofl.-nding "Prince of Denmark," in I'ulmo's Opeia llnuae, about a week Bgo, iiHuwd to repeat thP san e awful scene en Tuesday evening of next week.? Not satisfied with the expresion of public opinior, or the verdict given on the occasion, they, like Polly Hodine, and other criminals of the present day. wish a second trial. And, probably, after that, they will ask for a third trial, and will move accordingly ? There's uo satisfying some [>eople. We also learn that they intend to put the tickfts at one dollar each, to admit two persons, a gentle man and a lady, and that they intend to apply the jiroceeds, after deducting the necessary expenses, (un oyster supper, of course,) to some charitable purpose. A few days since, an announcement was made through the public prints, indicating that the pro ceeds were to be given to the "Association for the bettering the condition of the poor." This notice having come aefore the pious and holy managers of that association, proceedings were immediately taken to refuse any assistance on their part, of money arising from the murder ol an innocent Prince and stranger from Denmark. Mr. Heait ley, the worthy Secretary of the association, wrote to Mr. Moorehead, who is the head and tail of the amateur theatrical trou/M, stating that on no account would the association accept any portion of these proceeds for the benefit ol the poor. The corres|>ondence, which is laughable in the extreme, will probably be published. It wil' show that charitable persons ol this city have the verdancy to think of establishing " associations for bettering the condition of the poor;" and yet, proba bly expecting manna from heaven, refuse to receive any assistance, in order to carry their purposes into effect. This ludicrous incident should be dressed up in a dramatic way, and it would make a capital farce or afterpiece to the tragedy of Hamlet, after he shall have been killed dead, and decently buried in the green-room, with a proper (|uantity of stewed oysters and champagne. A word to the amateurs. If there is no charitable society in New York that will receive the money you may draw on your nrxt representation, why not appropriate it for the endowment or establish ment of an institution for the benefit of decayed ac tors and actresses 1 We have had many abortive attempts hitherto to establish such an institution, but we think now is the time to carry it into effect. The opportunity is favorable. Theatricals. Park Theatre ?Last evening, being Christmas, a very full house presented itself at the Park. Tie opera of tho " Bohemian Girl" wns again played, without any new features. Alter this the fine old comedy of "Three Weeks after Marriage," in which George Barrett, Mrs. Bland, and Mr. Cass appeared, was played, and went off in fine style, and very much to the amusement cf the audience ; and the evening closed with a capital larce, which has had ft great run at the Haymarket Theatrei L ndon, entitled " Done Brown," in which George Bar rett, John Fisher, Miss Horn, and others, appeared. {This evening ttie " Bohemian Girl" will be repeated, with the larce of the " Irish Attorney." Oil Monday " Amilie" is to lie produced, and in a short time the tine comic opera of " Don I'asquale." Dowerv Theatre.?This establishment wan tilled in every part yesterday afternoon, and in the evening each distinct portion of the house wag jammed, crammed and double-crammed throughout?and yet, with this crowded Btate of things, tho most perfect quiet reigned triumphant. The performances, of themselves, were suf ficient to draw a full and crowded auditory; yet, upon this holyday occasion, the people seemed to turn out en matte. Kvery body s:emed to be there. To-night a very interesting diamatic bill is to be presented, including the popular drama of " Tho Black Rangers," " L'golino"' and "The Biigand Monk,'" iu which Cony and Blanchard.with their dog Hector, are to appear. Trior's Ci?cc?, Bowery.?This popular place of re sort ipaiticularlv by the juveniles) was crowded yester day afternoon and evening. The performances at this establishment doserva encouragement. We understand that there is something really rich and commanding re served lor the ensuing month, in which some of the most distinguished equestrians in our country are to appear. Vis Aubi'Huh'i Mk^aukhie ?We passed a very agree able hour yesterday iu witnessing the choice collection ol annual ; gathered together, and presented to the view of the public at this establishment. To those who ex press an interest in "animated nature," we commend this Zoological display as worthy of their atte ntion. Clara Ellis is at the .St. Charles Theatre, New Orleans, E. S. Connor the tragedian is playiug there. Dempster, the vocalist, gives a concert in New Bedford this evening. Josephine Clifton is now m Cincinnati. Mr. Burko, the viilinist, makes hii first appearance in Boston to-morrow evening, at the concert of the Philhar monic Society. The Keans will commence an engagement at the Ches nut street Theatre, Philadelphia, on Monday ovening next, when the tragedy of "Ion" will be produced. City Intelligence. Christmas Day.?Many a youngster woke up )iester dsy morning, and found his stocking, which he had hung the night before at the head ol his bed, slutted full of all sorts of presonts for the Christmas, loft there by that ubiquitous personage, old Santa Claus, who has the pe culiarly happy faculty of being able to descend nearly every chimney in the land, on Christmas eve. Many happy faces were lighted up with a radiance of smiles yesterday morning, us they descended from their rooms to wish "merry Christmas" to every one they met. And despite the gloomy weather without, it was a merry day. Krom the "above Bleecker" palace of tho rich merchant or broker, to the house of the poorest day laborer, every body was happier for Christmas There was not a faco but shone brighter, not a heart but beat lighter fBr it A more kindly feeling was diffused among all people, even the lowest, and as they hob-anobbed their glasses of "blue-ruin" in the grog-shops, they wished each other a "merry Christmas." In tho morning, many of the churches were open, and those who telt so inclined at tended, to commemorate the birth of Him who was born in Nazareth eighteen aeuturies ago, and the mission of whose birth, life, and precepts, is yet to spread happi ness over all the dark spots ot earth, and make the "wilderness bud and hlossom as the rose tree."? After church service in the morning, the day was given up to mirth and merriment. All sorts ol exhibitions, lrom a penny peep-show up to a theatrical perlorinance, were open, and ready to receive the cash of those who entered, and give them an hour's plcasuie in return for it. But, oh! the huge piles of eatables that went the wav of nil eatables, yesterday! The amount is incalcu lable. Turkeys, geese, ducks, and fowls of every de scription?venison, beef, mutton, oysters, preserves, fruits, and cakes of all kinds?everything that was good to eat, were scattered over tables, from the highest to the lowest of our citizens' families -and the heart* of young and old were made merrier, and on better terms with nil the world, for the I'hristmas dinner. The eve ning was spent in parties, balls, pleasant family gather ings, at theatres, and other places of amusement; and piobahly by this morning, ell who have partakun of theso amusements have slept, them off", and awakened refresh ed. and made better by Christmas. Kir/.? A fire broke out, yesterday, about 2 o'clock, at the house No. JQ3 Kultori streot, which was extinguished without much damage being done. Bowery Difficulties.?We understand that there was quite an rmuete took place on Christmas Eve at one of the most distinguished places of public resort in the Bowe>y, the principal participants in which includes s gentleman of some considerable pugilistic notoriety, and one or two equally distinguished in the " profession" to which they ure attached Homo few blows were ex changed?a pistol presented, nnd other equally serious manifestations occurred, when the parties caine to ' Barney," and the whole matter was satisfaotoi ily and equably adjusted. This, of all other methods, is the better way to settle dittcul ifts, particularly when the " end will not justify the means." Irish Kmii.iuit Socieey'i Rail.?The ball going public arc leminded that on Monday evening next thn Irish Emigrant Society will give their second annual hall at Niblo's To those who attended the ball of this society last year, it is only necessary to announce the fact- but to thoso who did not, we would >ny that it will he atten lodliy all the wit, beauty und fashion of the eity, an announcement that guarantees a pleasant even ing, nnd will be sure to draw a full attendance. Sariiaih School Missionary Asso<iaiio? or the C?sr??l PlHIYTMIAS CHUII H I* BftOOME STREET ? We attended the exercises ol this association, a. the < en tral Presbyterian Church,yesterday. Tho annual report having been submitted, the Kev J P.

" Let the song of praise and gladness Ring to earth's remotes bound," in a very becoming and handsome manner. The Kev Win. Adams, pastor of this congregation, entered into a general review ol the usefulness and effect resulting trom the establishment of Sunday schools, and comment ed at length upon tho duties we owe as a common bro therhood to the henighte I and igiioumt in other portions olthel'mted States Master Governeur M. Hmitn, a lad of about 13 years of age, delivered an address, which, together with that given by Master Edward Weed, (of which we have full and faithful copies, though unavoid ably crowded out from the press of other matter,) and other interesting ceremonies, concluded the religious services of the flay. A collection was then taken up to aid in the disseminatiou of the objects for which this as sociation was established. CoftO.irR'a Ornt*, Dec 'J5.

Court of Oyer aud Terminer. Before Judge Kdmonds, Aldermen Vantine sud Brady. Dkc. S3.? Trial of IK?i. Harptrfor I As Murder of John Oeorge Kimp ?The case wm resumed tins morn inwhen the District Attorney summed up for the pro secution. Hi* address took up three hour*. The Judge then chargeitthejury, and in commenting upon the dy ing declaration ot Kimp, the deceased, said that where a declaration is taken in exttemet, and the formalities o( law complied with, it is outUled to lull credit from the jury; in this case all these formalities and requirements we'e strictly fulfilled, and the declarations were made under the solemnity of an oath and the terror of im pending death; and if the jury were satisfied that it is true, theie could be no sort ot doubt but that his death accrued from the stab given by the prisoner at the bar. There is nothing so certain, said his Honor, it* that the blow must have been cither given !<y the prisoner or by Mrs Kimp, to the deceased; one witness only h<d been produced to show that it was Mrs. Kimp that did it, and that testimony, at the time it was given, struck him very forcibly it show d, if it could to relied on, that she then entertained u deadly hatred against her husband, and if the jury could believe that testimony. There could be no doubt but it was she, and not the prisoner, who gave tho la ta! stab- but this case as well as all otherwises of the name kind, presents that disgusting feature which 1 call false testimony. In considering and weighing the testimony to support this defence, you must take the character of the witness, his behaviour on the staud, how he sur rounds himself, and Uie sort of barriers he puts between himself and tho consequences of false sweating; tliore i* another feature in the testimony of this witness; I mean the extraordinary character of the declaration he testi fies to, as being made to him by Mrs Kimp, an extraoi dinary declaration, I repeat, for any person in their sober senses to make, oven to a friend, much lass a person who, it appears from all the evidence in the case, to bo to her comparatively a stranger. This you are also to take into your consideration, and it is one of the circum- ] stances by which you can come to a satisfactory con clusion whether lloome's account is a true or false one. Vou will find upon a comparison of tho testimony that she is corroborated in every instance but one, and that is as to who gave the blow ?but as to who did thjt there is 110 living testimony to be given but by him who did it. He then laid down the logal rules applicable to the cre dibility of witnesses, and said the jury were to enquire how far she was corroborated by the other wit nesses, and they would find that in all the main features of her testimony, she was corrobora ted by ull except Rogers and Gibson upon whose testi mony he animadrerted at some length; but there were many circumstances in tho case, that would enable the jury to arrive at a proper consideration of this matter.? There is,for instance, the circumstance of his running away, but he might do this and not be guilty. Ho inig t he a timid man, and his fears would in all probability get the better of his discretion; but you must look anil find out whether he is a man of that kind or not. On the othe hand, you must form a consideration ofall the facts and circumstances, see whether he did not run from having committed the act, and from a consciousness of guilt. Again, you are called upon to determine whether this wound has not been inflicted in a scuffle in conse quence of a fight?and here again, it is extraordinary when the prisoner was arrested immediately after, and called upon to account for his conduct, that he never said or intimated that lie done it in self-lefence. Thus it would appear that this defence is an alter thought, and you must give it tho consideration you think due to it, in coming 10 a conclusion in this case. If you find thut it was tho prisoner who struck the blow, then it is your duty to enquire what crime it is?whether it is murder or manslaughter ! He then stated tho marks by which the law distinguishes the two crimes from each other, and told the jury they were to enquire, was the blow struck with an intent to take the life of Kimp. lfso.it was murder: or even if it was not, they were to enquire was it done by the hand of a man of a depraved heort, who was at all times, and on all occasions reckless of the lives of liis fellow-creatures f for that of itself would constitute murder. But whether it is manslaughter or murder, must depend upon all the circumstances and incidents depending upon the perpetration of it After some lurtlier remarks, he told the jury they were to de termine first whether Kimp is dead; if ho is dead, did lie meot his death by violmce, and was it by the hinds of the prisoner. Anil then you are to determine whether it is manslaughter or murder. The prisoner was then ordered to be removed, and the jury retired. After a consultation of about two hours, they came in with a verdict, finding the prisoner Guilty of Murder. The prisoner, Wifliam Harper, is a native of England, and has been fifteen years in this country. He has been married about seven years, and has a wife and two chil dren now living in this city. He was a house-carpenter and wheelwright. Gougii's Last Statement?John B. Gougti is again in the field, and has published in the Boston papers a statement in answer to the charges pre ierred against him by the Police Gazette, of this city. It is rather a lame aliair, however, and we very much doubt whether it will prove satisfactory to those who have perused the accounts of Mr. Grough's defalcation. He attempts, in this statement, to vindicate himself trom the serious charges brought against htm, but in so vague and loose a manner as to involve the whole affair in deeper mystery and doubt. We give a brief abstract of his defence.? Mr. Gough commences by saying, he is compelled to appear again before the public, in consequence of the grossly outraaeou3 assaults upon his character. He would, " under ordinary circumstances, prefer to live down, rather than write down, the ill-natured whisperings of the evil minded, but in this case ! silence is impossible, and would be wrong " He is ready to meet, at all times, any tangible assertions, and put them down?such have at last been made by the Police Gazette. Mr. Gough now alleges that the newspa|>er war against him, is provoked by mer cenary men, for mercenary motives, and charges that the leading features of the assault in the Gazette are "base, shadowless, full coined lies" He next comes to the conclusion that the great point present ed, pressed, and considered conclusive, is the assert ed fact that he was at the house, where he was found, in Walker street, at least more than once before the week following the 5th of September. This he de clares he can prove talse, ana then adds??? 1 say, first, that I can show, in a manner which the editors of the Gazette little suspected, where I have been, with whom, where slept, and what I have done every day and night that I have been in New York, since May 15th, 1HJ8." And he does thi* by the following means, whi ch we suppose any accused party might easily adopt :? " Because, from that date I have kept a tegular diary of all the places I have visited, where I have spoken, whom I met, what I received, with whom I stopped, Sec I, therefore, only ask any day to be named, that 1 have been in New York, siuce May 15th, 1843, and 1 will pro duce as respectablo witnesses as can be found to prove where I went, what I did, and where I took my nights' rest. They may select any time they please, and tue proof of their base and malignant falsity shall bo pro duced, to the satisfaction of every candid man. A'td 1 will now procced to enumerate the only aod all the times I have visited New York tn the past year, with such evidence, touching the " fiva or six weeks" story, as will prove the assertion I have always made and now repeat, that I never was at the house in Walker street, before Sent.5th, 1845, and that it was uttorly impossible for me to be there, or at any other similar place, without the knowledge of my friends, lor 1 never, in any in stance, was away fiom them. " The charge of the Gazette, and the only material one made by them, is, that " one evening about six or seven weeks previous to Sept 6th, (it should be Sept. 5th) I met a certain tall, good looking woman, with dark hair and eyes, whom (they slyly insinuate,) I shall perhaps recollect, went with her to the same house and left early in the morning.'' That this is a base, malignant, and un qualified falsehood. I shall now prove. 1 was in New Yoik and vicinity during a part of Inst March and April, in company with my wife ; and during the whole time, from the U?th of March to the '25th oi April, our home was at Mr. George Hurlbut's, in Brooklyn. I did not visit New York again, until 1 passod through on my way to Baltimore, on the 1st of July, in company with my friend; Mr. Morse. We returned to New York on the 18th of the same month, and this is the time, I pre sume, that is alluded to, as that in which I am charged with meeting "a certain daik eyed woman." Gough here publishes a statement of a Mr. Morse, who states that he ariived in New York with Mr. Gough on the 30th day of June, and was with him all the time he remoin?d. A letter of Mr. Bates is also published, in which the author states he camo to New York with Mr Gough and wife on the 4th of August, and proceeded to Albany with them on the tith. Mr. Bates says he was with Mr. Gough the whole time, with the exception of about an hour on the 5th. when Mr. Gough accompanied his wife to Brooklyn. Gough next alludes to the charge that he <vai seen coming from the boat on the 6th of Sep tember, with some female. To this charge he answers : ?" Now I assert, and defy contradiction, that I came from the boat in company with no woman whatever, ex cept such as were among the crowd of strangers, bun y ing from the boat. In this respect, I may have been side by side with one or more than one , but I neither knew them, spoke to them, nor held any communication what ever with any of them There might have been, foi aught I know, one, two, or a doien women, of various shapes and in various drtsses, by oi around me, but they were no more with mo tha . people are with each other in such a crowd." He then makes a furious onslaught on the Onsctfc, and says ?'There is a hmrty alacrity, a fiendish. gloating joy, over the daughter or character, which oii|(ht to amino tho suspicion of any candid ininrt 1 think a moment') examination of their count, will answer far more ef fectually to exhibit their mendacious guilt, than they hovo succeeded in doing in their attack on me.

Thursday, December UJ-0 P. M. This being Christmas day,tho bulls and bears attended church, instead ol the exchange, and we have no doubt they will be easror to morrow lor the excitement of Wall street. The week has boon broken by this holyday, and the remaining business days will, without doubt, be rather quiet. We do not look for much activity in the stock market until alter New Year, when, it is possible there may be, for a short time, a speculative movement of moderate extent. The steamer from Liverpool, of the 4th of January, will not be due until about the 30th( , and previous to that time, quotations for fancy stocks will probably advance, when we may look for another panic.

It wil' be seen that there has been a very great increase in the export of certain articles of foreign produce and manu facture.

The increase in the shipments of our breadstuff's, has been in exports, principally to Great Britain, and have been made within the past three months. Had it not been for the deficient harvest in Europe, and the specu lation created in this market by that, there would have been much more limited shipments this year than last.? A much larger quantity of sugars has been exported this year than usual, in consequence of our large domes tic supplies; but recent advices from our sugar growing sections, are of such an unfavorable nature, that further shipments of foreign sugars from this port, will be ar. rested, ood the supplies in market reserved for home consumption. The importations of sugar from the West Indies this year, hare been very limited, compared with previous seasons, and on account of the short crop in these islands, we cannot expect more than one third of our usual supplies from that quarter. From the 1st of January to the 1st of December, IMA, the exports of su gir from Havana and Matanzas, to the United States, amounted to 43,413 boxes, against 178.06A boxes for the same period last year. It la impossible to tell, at this early period, the amount of injury the late severe frost* have done to the sugar cane, but it no doubt ha* been very great. It is estimated that the loss from this cause alone will be at least 41,000 hhds. as every stalk of cane standing must have been frozen. A correspondent of the New Orleans Commercial Timet, makes the following calculation. llhit. Taking the general estimate oi the expected crop at 180,000 And supposing there had been gathered. 110,000 And of the remaining there were proba bly in winrow 30,000 130,000 There would be left exposed to the severe frost AO,000 If this frozen cane yield* more than 30 per cent, it will be contrary to all experience?this would make ? ? . 10,000 This calculation shows a loss of........ 40,000 The cane when frozen split*, and the air gets in and vitiate* the juice.
