As 1 predicted in my laat, the price of cotton has unproved, und holders have demanded and receiv ed advanced prices of one-eighth and one-quarter cent per lb. and have resolved to sell at the old rates. This course has prevented any large sales from baing t ff* cted, as buyers resist the increase. The sales for the past two days have not been more than about 4 #00 bales the sales yi*t< rda^t cing only l,5t(t. The stock on hand is compaiatively small, being reckoned at about 117,000 balea, including that on shipboard. There have been no nrtivals ol any consequence since my Inst.

The Pilots and the Combination. Pursuing the review ot the "constitution, rules, and regulations of ihe Board of Commissioners ol Pilots," established by the Chamber of Commerce and board ol Underwi iters, the.second article of the constitution deserves a passing remark. That article provides, "that this board consist of five persons, to be chosen lor one year; two by the Board ot Underwriters, two by ihe Chamber of Commerce, mid one by ihe Secretary of the Navy." On the 221 July, 1815, public notice was given, that the pilot commissioners had "lsaued licenses to a number of well experienced persons," to which appeared ihe name oi Commodore Jacob Jones.? The enquiry here presented is, whether it will be found quite consistent with the dignity of the go vernment of ihe United States, that it should be a party to this or any like constitution, or in any man ner iliua identified, unless by an express declaration of Congress, authorizing or (sanctioning the asaocia tion. A critical examination of the powers and duties of the Secretary of the Navy, a* d? fined hy law, dors nut inform us whence this authority is derived; atili we do not abandon the hope that u may yet sa tisfactorily ai)|*?ar, that the government has not been coin promised, notwithstanding its influence has been exerted to the prejudice of a resectable portion of this community, directed by the energy of irre sponsible associates. The government of ihe United States has been made a constituent part of an association organized by a constitution; the Secretary of the Navy in the oigamzation representing one interest, ihe other two bring the Chamber of Commerce and Board ol Un derwriters. It has not be?-n usual (o find n department of the governmeut InlX* d up with local institutions, how eve r legally established; much less can it he approv ed, w hen the organization is without the t-anction of law, but is at most a private enterprise, springing into existence to issue licenses to particular individuals, nt the very moment the S ate Legislature declared a license or authority to be unnecessary, and autho rized all her citizens to engage iu the pursuit; in ef fect rebuking ibe Stale, contravening her policy and usurping her prerogative.

At the imminent risk of life and itnb, through streetB of Cimmerian darkness, plung ng at every crowing in deep quagmires of thick Abater and ice, we found at last, at a distant part of thecity, the advertised locality. The discourse, it wan stated, wan addressed parti cularly to the young, from the text 1 John 14 v : 4,1 lave written unto you young men." The Doctor, after n lew introductory remarks, proceeded to the subject, stating, that to form impro per and corrupt associations it is uot necessary to mix with bad company; this niiy be ("lone iy novel reading. I*he evils and bad effects ?I this kind of readiniz were then pointed out in i general manner.

The subject was then concluded by a warning ugaiust the evil mentioned, addressed particu larly to the > oung. All these various propositions were enunciated witb mt any intelligible nriangnment or order, and without ?nuch distincinesa and perspicuity, such as ml^ht have been looked tor in a studied and written composition; they were even sometimes so deeply buried in epithets, veibiage. and flowers if rhetoric, that it was difficult to catch any intelligible proposition at all. Nor was (here the least attempt at demonstration, or oven illus 'ration. It seemed to be supposed that all of them were gospel, and were to be taken lor granted Indeed, tho gen tleman who followed tile lent fied doctor, actually made an illusion to the disconre,calling this collection of disjoint ed and common-place assertions, a "gospel sermon.'' He must surely have spoken either ironically oi jocosely, for in the whole discourse, there was not the remotest allusion?not the slighest releronce either to law or goa pel. More of the law, that universal guide implanted ? laturHlly in every breast which points out right or wrong with iutalIibtc certainty, ami even more ot the Gospel might be found in the mortis of th:- heathen Seneca, oi the chaiacteristics of the 1 cenlious Shaftsbuiy. The duties and commands etilorced by the one?the hopes and blessings conveyed by the other, were nut for an in stant advei tail to in any manner, and, indeed, it wus a merit for which he Doctor deserves credit, that that freat name which it would be profanity to mention light iy, did not once occur in tho whole declamation.? Wo think it was extromely well that this name was not mixed up with the long catalogue of ^uch namos as Etigen Aram, Walter Scott, Nicholas Nickloty, Bulwet, Paul Clifford, Sec., Ike., with which the Doctor seemed extremely familiar, and some what more conversant than with the a. t of reasoning consecutively or arguing logically. The discourse was strictly what it profaned to be, nil oration upon novel reading,addressed to the young, and it ii to be presumed that had it been intended fur others than childron, there would have been mora lucid arrangement, less flowery verboseness, aud more solid argument.

H, Jirgui. The (ieorgia papers are rejoicing over the passage in the Heuse. (flt to it) of the bill creating a Court for the Correction of Krrors, to consist of three Judges. The flrit session ol this newly orgauisoil Court will h? held In Savannah tho drat week in January next Trinity Church Corporation?.1'bc I^ung pending Suit? Million* of Property In volved, Tii* litigations which have been so long |>ending in relation to the immense property held by the Ves try of Trinity Church, are, from present appear aaces, likely to bu disposed of ere loot;, in some way or oilier; at* a fln?l hearing in the cae is now in progress before the AwttU Vice Chancellor. As Uje subject is one of deep interest to the citi zens of New V'ork : ami more especially to those who feside within ihe lnn:tt> ot the property in dis pute ; we lmve been induced to cive the public som- idea of the position ot tin* parties concrned, atid lti< nature of the;r res|fttive claims. Tfeer-.- luvebeen several actions instituted by differ ent branches of the tamily ot Annete Jans, whose desendan's are very numerous, (probably numb ring upwards ot one hundred |>ersons,) the principal por tion ol whom are re&idiug in different parts ot this State. One branch of tin* heirs commenced an action ot ejectment against the Corporation ot Trinity Church tor u portion oi ilie probity in dispute, with a view ot testing u right to the wholu, in 1730. This suit was tried beiore a jury in 17(i<), when a verdict w.t? taken, subject to the opmiou ot the court In 1762 a decision mid judgment was given in tavor ot Triiiity Church. Previous to that time, the heirs of Annete J*ns had made repeat* d claims to parts ol the property, b'ii the English interests predominated ; tne heirs being Dutch, und claiming under Dutch patents, it appear* were detested iu seeking their alleged rights up 10 1786 It also aj>i?ear* from publications madeafcout that time, tliHt u number of the htirs r.f Annete Jans took possession ot a part of the property in 1785. und on which decaf ii.n several violent personal contlicts ensued betweenihein and |>ersons alleged to have been instigated by the Church pariy It is, however, Stated iu rather an antiquated publication, that prior to these difficulties some of the ancestors of the pre sent claimants, for two or thr*e years enjoyed a quiet possession of the property in dispute In the year 1786? another (>ortion ot trie heirs of Annete Jans, commenced an action of ejectment agdinst the corooratton of Trinity Church ; but, as it is supposed, that in consequence of want ol means on their part, the suit was abandoned. In 2801, ttill another suit was commenced, and that suit continued pending in the Supreme Court, in this city, until 1326. The present suit wan commenced in 1830, the bill being tiled in the month ol December of (bat year, and in March, 1831, a demurrer was filed to the whole bill, except a certain part, und to tliut part an answer was put in. Oil hearing of this demurrer before the Chancel lor, lie overruled and required defendants to plead or answer. At the expiration of three months, the time allowed, th?y tiled their present plea The coniplamams questioning the sufficiency ol the plea, in the usual course of Chancery proceed ings, the Chancellor, oil hearing ol counsel, ruled that the plea waa sufficient. Whereupon ilie appeal was taken to the Court tor the Correction of Errors, where the question ot sufficiency of this plea was further anmed, and the Court for the Correction ol i Errors affirmed the decision o. the Chancellor, which ordered the complainants to reply, or file a replication, which whs done, the case being thus ?t issue upon this plea, and the answer to sup port it. Evidence has been taken on the part ot the church I jti? well aa that of the complin aits: the defendants I tieiug bound by the terms of the plea to prove their plea true, and the hearing before th" Assistant Vice ( Chancellor now is to decide on the sufficiency of | their evidence to prove it true. j The whole ot .Saturday was occupied by the coun sel for the church, iu producing leases to their nu merous tenants coveringthe.extensive property they j now hold. In accordance with the terms of the de fendant's pica, they are required to prove that they ' 'iave hud the actual possession of all the property I iytng west of Chaiiel street, between Christopher ?treei and a line between Warren and Chambers : -;t!cets, troni the year 1705 to the time of tiling the plea. On the part of the complainants or heirs of Annete lans, it is necessary to show that some of their | ancestors occupied a portipnof the disputed territory ' inder claim of the whole within the before named j period, as peaceably as the church corporation has occupied the otliei portion. The evidence to tie adduced in this case will pro i bably be exhausted dnring the course of the day, | when the subject will be argued by the able counsel oil both sides; and whatever interesting tacts may then be elicited in relation to this Jong ending anil important rait, will be duly noted and given in the columns of the Htrttld. The case will, doubtless, be more readily under 1 -tood by the following abstract of the bill filed in Chancery:? "By the complainant's hill, he claims, as one of the de ?Cendan * if Annete Jan* or Bogardus, formerly wilt >lth?

And that the corporation hod received part of he rents and profits of tho premise*, in trust for him and them from the time of such entry, in one thousand seven hundred and five, down to the filing of the bill in this cuuae.? Che complainant, in hi* bill, further alleged tha' in 17M the corporation, by a committee duly authorized for that purpose, made its claim in writing to the pre mises under the deed of transport to Colonel Lovelace, and through tho meme conveyance of the grant from tho crown. The complainant further stated that the cor poration had sold certain parts of the premises, and re ceived large sums on *uch sales, and had leased other portions thereof, reserving the rent; which rent it had received a* tenant in common with Cornelius Bogardus and hit heirs; and the complainant prayed a discovery of all the property of the corporation, and of the rent* and income ol the premises in question in thi? cause, and of the sales thereof; and for nn account and p lyrnent of the one-fifth ol one-sixth of the rent" and profits ol the pre ! mises. and ol the proceeds of *uch sales which had been received sinco he entry ol the corporation in 170.\ or 1 which might be dne thereafter.

Cariington deponed that she >a? Mrs. Thomat in Baliimore, a law ?lays after she had left the residence of Gov. Thomas in Annapolis ; that she wan extreme)? emaciated, and ???emed to be laboring unJor interne mental snfteiing ; that her usual bjoyant and elastic apiric was depressed, and that the believed that if she had bef n longer subject ed to the course of treatment that mutt have necessarily I roduced the state of mind ami body under which she was then laboring, her speedy death would have been the inevitable consequence ; that she had known Mrs. T Horn a" trom tiur mtuncy. and always thought her, and still thought her, one ol the purest of ladies ; that aha i.ever heard aught spoken against her, until this rspor*, circulated b. her husband. Mrs Cock deposed that Mr*. Thomas visited her soma eighteen months before her mariiag , and (pent soma hve or six week* wjth her?that her health waa good? f ad that a ceitain cettilicate, produced in court, which related to Mrs. Thomas, while paving the visit spoken of, waa wholly false aud anfounded?and that from her knowledge of the character and conduct of Mrs. T-. (for s ie had known her from bar infancy.) no suoh Accusa tion could be, in tiuih, grounded against her? that hai conduct had always been marked with the strictest pro 1 riety , so much so, that the most fastidious could not object--and that she always believed, and still belisvsd her to be as pure a womau us ever lived. Mr. Oraysou deposed that ha accompanied Governor Thomas to Virginia when he was married ?that Got. Thomas acted very singularly upon the occasion; ha re ? iurked several time? that he expected some loul play was going on; that ho haJ understood that Gov. McDow. 111 intended that all preparation should be made for tha wedding, and that when the time came for the minister t > f eriorm the ceremony, that some other man waa to be Married to Miss McDowell, and uot himself, and that ha would prepare himself for the occasion, and go armed? i.o further deposed, that tha matters contained in tha i amphl-t published by Thomas, in r ferenoe to himsalf. ><eru wholly unfounded, and without tha shadow of truth; that Mrs. Thomas' conduct, so far a* it came Ba ilor his observation, was auch that no possible oxeop* ion could be taken To it; that it was such as character* '-ed a lady; he read a letter from (Jov.

Mr. Taylor deposed that he was induced by Gov. Thomas, to go to Frederick, and >orm a connexion with him in tne practice of the law?he did to. Tba tirst intimation of any thing unpleasant existing be j i ween Mrs. Thomas and hei u?band, was by tne r?> .-option of a note signed by Mrs. Thomas, though svi? ently dictated by her husband-that he had a conversa ! lion w ith Thomas about the purpett of the note he bad received Thomas roplied. " ha had obtained hia inlor lation from hit wile, ai d that was enough fir him " 1'he deponent stated, tint he pronounced t e accusation Mite, but as Thorn*s insisted lie had derived his infoi ? nation trom his wife, though lie knew it was impossible, he did not like to denoiii.ee the lady, for he knew it ? ould not be so-tlat he did not leave Fr-denck be* ' aute of any threat made by Gov. Thomas, but in con lormity to a previous determination, because of the act. that the c nnexion bet ? een Thomas and himself 'iad become offensive to him?and that he had concluded to leave Fiederick whenever a better opening presented tielf?and so far as the. pamphlet, printed by Thomaa, ' unreined him, it waa utterly false? that he was tne 'outin f Mrs. T.; that her character was pure and tie arllied. Whereupon, the jury, withotit leaving thier teats, ound the siatemenis tiled by Mri. Thomas, against -Tancis Thomas, to be true, and vindicated her from the out aspersions alleged against her. The reporter of this briet sketch, in justice to the riarties. would la. it wa* utterly impossible to give the . testimony in detail: that he has only attempted to give I :he substance ? and ihat no lady could have vindicated ! lerself so cleurly from the heart-reuding charges pre I l. rred against her, as Mrs. Thomas has dona upon this I occan ion.
