The Doctor stated to the court that the young man alluded to in yesterday's proceeding, as having b?en indicted by Henry J. Orew. 'or penury in Jersey City, wa? not in the employ of Cometock fc Co., nor ha* ho beeu for the la?t two year*. The Doctor then commenced hi? opening epeech for hit defence, of con siderable length and somewhat loquacioui l he Doc tor went oa to itate that he would *huw ini hi* defence clearly, that the contract between him and Dal y was not violated, which he would prove by the original contract; he would thow to the satisfaction of the court that he had told Linn'a Balm and Sublimate Burn Ointment, be tween live and lix yeara betore this contract was en tered into ; alio, he would ihow that he bad *ent ono of hi* clerk* to Dally respecting the intrineemenL and Dal ly replied that it waa jio infringement o? hia article ; he would further abow bv his clerks, that ??e never made any charge in the book* respecting the printing of the wrappers6; he intended <o sUw conclusively, that in stead of his being behind hand in pay ments to Dally, that Daily's notes were always paid at maturity, end fre quently received money in advance-that he would show by documents. He was well aware that the gist of this charge was concocted by Grew, but he would clearly show to the court that Orew made an affidavit, and then afterwards contradicted hts own declarations ; he would also prore that the contract was forged and 0?rew has sworn that the body of the contract was in the hand writing of Comstock. when hewould clearly show it to be in the hsnd writing of Dewit C. Ross , this he said, must show, when he made his affidavit, conclusively, that he has since sworn differently from the previous statement; at the time the settlement was made, it was done by his lawyer, without his knowledge or consent; the Doctor then recalled Mr. C.J. Rooievelt. DocToa?Has Dally ever told you the cause of all his bj tw interfoMQC, .( "SXJVSSU <li?l be toll you that t Witness?In the winter of 1846 Doctor-How long have you known Orew r Witness?About two or three years.

I have haard Henry Dally himself say that Grew was not to bo beliovod?also Mr. pally i lawyer says so?both the Doctor's brothers, and also counsel '?Giraw*took tha contract and ahowad it to tha witnaas, and aakad him if ha knew the hand writing 7 Witness?The body of the contract is in the hand writing of Ross, except tha last clause. George Y. Oilbbrt, sworn, andexamined by the Doc l? Doctor-Do you know my hand writing 7 Look at the body of that contract. Witness?It is not in your hand writing. A paper was then handed to the witness by the Doc tor. purporting to be a statement drawn up by the wit ness and dictated by Grew, in the office of witness, stab ing in substance that Dally had violated his affidavit; and injunction also, that Mr. Grew gave him this state ment to show that Mr. Dally had sworn to what was n >t true. Grew also pointed out to the witness, in his affi davit, wherein be had swore that Dally had deposited on storage 10 dozen of the pain extractor. It being now three o'clock, the Court adjourned until to-day (Friday) at half-past 10 o'clock. Robbing hit Employer.?Henry Carlow was arrested yesterday by a policeman, for stealing a gold P0ocil case; also $10in money, from Mr. Bryan Shotweu, No. 183 Bowery ; also, from Mr. Smith, No. 390 Broome St., he stole >8 in money. Committed by Justice Taylor. Rt/emy ?Margaret Hastings was arrested yesterdav by officer Whikehart, for bigamy, she being the lawiul wife of Thomas Hastings, who is far, far, at sea ; and poor Maggy feeling very ionely, and having dreampt that Tom was lost at sea, on one stormy night, got mar ried to one John, alias James Curtis, on the -JOth of June, 1846, having good reason to believe that her dream was not true. John knew very well that Mag was a married woman, therefore a warrant was imued for him, charg ing him also with a felony, for having married this wo man, knowing her to be the wife of another. The first husband is still absent at sea; consequently the complaint was made by Mr. Levi Ives, wis keeps a sailor J>?ardinjr house in the " star'' ward. They were both held to bail in the sum of >1000 each, to appearand answer, by Jus Uce Osborne. The Conspiracy Cat*.-In the case of Mr^Bergsn mentioned yesterday, it seems ths whole proceedings have originated from an attempt on his part to punish the sheep dealers for an alleged breaking open and robbing of the trunk of O'Connor of >460, uoon which complaint they were discharged; and also for taking him on a sheep speculation, wherein O Connor is said to have furnisbod the money. It eeems, too, that O'Connor in sisted that Mr. B. should keep his money trom him, and that Mr. B. threatened to use, end did use the legitimate police. Mr. B. demanded an immediate hearing. All the fscts will yet come out. Court ofOensral Sessions. Jan. 8.? Before Recorder Tallmadge, and Aldermen Conner and Compton Jonas B. Philim, Esq., Acting Distriot Attorney.

Mr. Redmond deposed that his premises were entered by forcing open one ol the shop windows with a chisel, and the property referred to taken away; also that a key and an English sixpence, stolen from bis premises, were returned to wi nes* by en officer. Officer Mansfield deposed tint he assisted in anresting the accused, and that on searching Burke an English six pen*? wa> found in one of hia boot*; two brass hey* were also found upon hi* person, which were claimod by ^A portion of a pocket handkerchief, loft by the burglars in the store of Mr. Redmond, was also found to corres pond with another portion found upon the person of Burke. None of the article* stolen having been found upon the pereen of Jackscn, the Jury acquitted him ; and as there appeared sosae doubts whether Mr. h i store was so connected with his dwelling ae to constitute e burglary in the 1st degree, the Jury rendered a ver dict in the third degree, end the court sentenced him to the Bute prison for the term of 2 years. The Grand hquatl.-Tht Urand Jury entered the court and stated that they bad finished op all the busi ness presented for their consideration, and desired, in order to evoid any delay, to appoint some assist Mr. Philips during lh# indisposition of tho District AtW*n*M Trice, Esq. was assigned by the court as the associate of Mr. Philip*. ? ...

Seaman, et ml.?Xbia wae an action to recover the amount of a promissory note made by the Stateu I aland Bank, for |30o0, dated 6 h October, 1841, endorsed by defen dant The money waa loaned to the bank by jplalntiffs, who took aa security the note in qneation.The signatures of the preaideut and caahier, and the aignaturea of the en doraere, were proved. The defendanta objected to have the note read in evidence, because It appeered on ita face to have been leaned by the bank, payable twelve deya after date, contrary to tho 4th eection of the banking "od in 1840, which prohibits any individual law. aa amended ... ,?r...? .u/ banker, or banking institution, leaning or putting in cir culation any note, unleaa payable on demand, and with out interest; and contended that the tame waa void.? The court sustained the objection, and reluaed to permit the note to be read to.tbe jury, on that ground. The plaintiffs then asked permission offcourt to go to the Jury on the t -alimony of Henry Sheppard, a witness produced by them, who awore that the loan was made to the bank, but on tho strength ol the endorsers' security. The counsel lor the plaintiffs insisted that, inasmuch as the loan was on the strength of the defendants security, he ! had a right to ask the Jury to eay that tho loan was msdo | to tho defendanta, and to give their verdict for the plain tiffs accordingly. Tho Judgo ruled that the testimony showed so clearly I a loan to tho bank, and not to tho defendants, that plain- 1 tiffs were not entitled to have the question submitted to the Jury, and granted a non-suit. For plaintiffs, John Anthon and E. W. Cone; for defen dants, Konnoy.Townaend and 8. Sherwood.

Superior Court* Before Chief Jul tree Jones. Jen.8.?Joseph Blunt vi. Jtllan Hon?The Court sub mitted a long and able charge to the jury, upon the nui. 1 sance caae hitherto reported in the Herald, and which haa occupied the attention of the Court for the laat two two days. Hie Honor the Chief Juatice firat commented upon the privilege! of tho landholder, and aaid it win an acknowledged principle in law that m man holding property had a perlect right to appropriate hie relate to aoy lawlul and legitimate purpo?e, and at the aame atat ed that another im|>ortant maxim waa that the righta of hia neighbor ahould be reapected ; and that there fore, if it waa made clear in evidence that a nuiaaaco existed in any populous portion of the city, it >1 came at once aubject to romoval, or the proprietor thereof ren dered himself liable for damages sustained by iudividu- I ala or a community This was brought as a civil suit, and the plaintiff alleges that he suffered by a deprecia tion in his property,in consequence of this nuisance com plained of. The defence maintain that this neighborhood (corner of Firat avenue and Second street,) had been spe cialty appropriated for tho purposes here avowed, and that the plaintiff was aware of tne existence of this state of things at the time he effected the purchase of this iden tical property, injuriously affected by the'proaecution of tho defendant's business. The Court thought this por tion rather untenable?that in a city like ours,where the march of improvement waa continually progressive, these offensive establishments ahould give way, as from time to time the circumstances of the caae should make it necessary. He briefly adverted to tho testimony which had been presented, and confided the wholo matter en tirely to the consideration of the jury, who could not but be satisfied as to the amount of damages the plaintiff had sustained inconsequence of this nuisance,herein express ly complains 1 of. After the Chief Justice had concluded bis charge, J. \V. Gerard, Ksq., arose and wished his Honor to charge the jury upon some particular point) the Court, how ever, said they had listened with patience to the argu ment of the counsel on either aide, and he, therefore, pe remptorily refused to listen to any further suggestions. The jury returned a verdict of six cents damages and six cants costs. Smith Cutter vs. N. H. Wolfe.?This is an action brought for the rocovory of the amount of a certificate of de|K>site, found to be in the possession of the defend ant, a commission merchant in this city, under the fol lowing circumstances : ? It appears that the plaintiff in this suit, was appointed as assignee of Jjjhn W Laverty, John L. M. Cutter, and Smith Cutter, Jr., c m prising tho firm of Laverty, Cutter A Co, who failed in business (doing a heavy dry goods jobbing trade) in tho yoar 1837. It also appears that tho members of this firm con tinued to act in the capacity of clerks, or assistants, in the settlement of their outstanding affairs for about one year, and during this period received a certificate oi de posit irom a house in Mobile in the amount of $1,385, which, as the plaintiff alleges, was handed to the de fendant, for purposes of discount; but that instead ol handing over the proceeds, he applied them to the ciedit of his brother-in-law, John L. M. Cutter, and has since refused to account in any way for the alleged mal-ap propriation of this money. The defence contend that this matt-r was iullv understood by the active members oi this late firm, and that he was clearly entitled to the avail* of this certificate. To be resumed to-morrow. Before Judge Oakley. Kteler $ Dann vi. William Joves, Sheriff of the City arid County of New York.?This is an actiou of trover. It appears that Thomas J. Harris kept a hat store at 80 Grand street, and that the Sheriff (the defendant in thia anil) mad* a levy upon hie atock in trade,on the Slat of Jnly, 1845, by virtue of an exacntion upon a Judg ment debtor $170, and sold him out at SheiifTa sale; the entire proceeds of which amounted to $54. I The plaintiffs contend that they were the owner* oi I this property, and that they supplied this Harris with hats, caps, lie., to sell on their account, and that he was entitled only to a commission for actual sales made by him. They therefore bring this suit for tho recovery of $167, as the amount of property consigned by them to Harris, for which he had rendered no returns. The de fence insists that these goodi attached by the Sherifl', were actual and bona fide purchases, and that they made no consignment*, as they allege, until the lltli Auguat, some 10 or 11 day a after the levy and sale.

Steamer Mir hi gan?Office Seeking, $-c., tfc. in these psris, during the long winters, and when n lvigation closes, there is a dearth ot amusements for those who follow the Lakes tor a livelihood, and who winter here?they are, therelore, thrown upon their own resources for amusements, and resort to all Banner of expedients to pass the time agreeably, and are always glad of an occasion to have a little spree or jolli tcation on their own accounts ; ond as the sleighing Is remarkably good this winter, it forma a line field for ?port. Testerday being a very beautiful day, very mild, and the sun shining brightly, scores of sleighs wen dashing about, and quite a sensation was created by tha l'reabyterian clii/ue ; for .you must know that society hore is cut up and divided into sets, as it is elsewhere.? There are the Presbyterians, the Episcopalians, ice., icc. Each possess'their own particular friends and associates. Well, this excitement was caused by an immense sleigh, drawn bv four horses, and filled with the youth and beauty of tbe Presbyterians. At night the " boys" were out having a Christmas Evo spree ; C '* saloon was thronged with them, and the oysters and liquor quickly vanished. He cetera for our gormandizing public, and is also a "me uber of the bar;" only, instead of handling " Uriels," he handles a " mud dler." The steamboat Helen Strong, (her lint seaaon out,) put in here about six weeks since, with her crank broke ?from here she went to Buffalo and was repaired, and started with a load of paaaengers aod freight for Detroit; whon within a few miles of the mouth of that river she was frozen fast iu the ice ; after great difficulty the pas sengers, captain and part of the crew left her, and suc ceeded in getting ashore on the ice. The mate and five men determined to remain by her, thotfgh urged to go ashore by the captain, with the rest. She was after wards blown out in the Lake, and alter drifting about in a helpless manner, quite s wreck, for three weeks, she was driven ashore on the weet side of Presque isle. Assistance was immediately ren dered by our citizena, headed by Cept. Bobbins, who is always ready in cases of emergency, and by the officers of the U. S. steamer Michigan, who, with tbe men under their command, have succeeded in landing the freight, cousiiling of whiskey, cheese, grindstones, kc. Icc., and are now preparing to launch her again, and get her safe into the haibor, for if a gale should spring up from tbe West, she would certainly go to pieces. They have worked indefatigably, and too much praise cannot be awarded them. Affairs here are looking up, and our merchants and others aro preparing lor an active business upon the opening of navigation and the canal; and no doubt their expectations will be realized, t&t when it becomes gene rally known that it is cheaper by this route, all the mer chants and traders from tbe towns and cities on the Ohio, and throughout the West, who go to Boston and New York to purchase goods, will send through this way, which is a great desideratum. I There are laying up in our harbor for tbe winter, (which is decidedly the best on the Lakes) the U. 8. i steamer Michigan, U. 8. topographical steamer Survey er, i revenue cutter Erie, and four or five steamers owned by (Jen. C. M. Reed, and, also, various sail craft, some ef which were frozen up la the ice before they could get out. Ofllce-seeklog here, as elsewhere, has been all the go ; those who have woiked hard for the " party" axpect to be remunerated by fut offices under government, and a share of the spoils. The town offices are filled. A demo cratic Postmaster and Collector fill the places of the whigs removed to make room for them. Thia is, doubt less, all right. Nothing can be said on that point. It hai been to heretofore, and will be so again, should tho whigs evarcome in power again, which, by tha by, tho knowing ones seem to doubt. Some, however, have not received appointments?all cannot have them?yet they aro waiting anxiously, in daily expectation of being ap pointed. They would not object being sent to " foreign parts," as ministers plenipotentiary. Lord help their innocence ! Those whe have done the dirty work of the " party," and who, consequently, cannot make out ?uch a strong claim upon it, are satisfied to be rewarded in a smeller way. Borne have been elected by the " bono and sinew'' L> represent them and the people in the As sembly, and others have promises showered upon them; but, ales ! no offices. Tbe weather has been extremely cold. Tho ther mometer has been several degrees below zero, but it ia now more moderate. Mineral Point, W. T., Dec. #, 184#. The Pro*ferity of the Country? The Mining Land*. Our country is exceedingly prosperous, mors so, perhaps, than any other portion of the United States; a lull supply of every article needful?the products of the country bearing a lair price, and a large market at home create! by the extraordinary emigration whieh we have had this season, which is 'estimated to number from 60 to 100,000 persons, nearly double the original population?our currency of the best, principally gold and silver, with our lead to furnish an abundance ot eastern exchange. The present prosperity will, how. evor, load to speculation, much to tho injnry of tho country. Should you visit Washington, be good enough to lend a helping band to our friends, who are making every ex ertion to procure a salo of the mineral lands. The coun try absolutely requires it?the situation of the mines is such that capital inimt be employed to prosecute them with success; since the surface has been dug over, machi nery has now to be used to take off tbe water and to raise the stuff. A large amount Of lanor has to be expended in sinking shafts and running drifts, and the uncertain tenura with which the ground is now held, together with the rent required for the government, deter* capitalists ; consequently much of the diggings, unless there is a solo of the lands, must and will be abandoned; turtheimere, the manner the government has managed, baa rendered greet confusion, even in the titles to those lands which have been already sold. Under the late decision ef the Supreme Court in the case of the United States vs. Gear, all lands whare mineral may have been " struck," arc reserved by the operation of law from salo. Many of those lands nave been sold -some because such lands were not designated on the maps; othsrs because the quantity of mineral found did not indicate a sufficient body of ore to make them of any value ; but tha find ing of mineral is exceedingly uncertain and has no fixed marks. Sinoe the sale, many of these lands have been found to contain Urge bodies of lead ; thus all the titles are thiown into confusion, which creates great difficulty among our citizens?retarding the improvement ef the country, while the government is not receiving tunta sufficient to pay their several .lead superintendents and other expenses.
