To Tile Eoitoo or the Wmnikotor Uitioif : Many of the New York paper* hero boon making a *rent outcry about the ?? monopoly" of the New York State licensed pilot*, with the view to prejudico the pub lic and Congresa against tboia. The Journal of Comwuret, on the Oth lnat. publiihed the following statement : " It ba* been the cuatom of the merchant* to celt on the pilot who brought in a ihip to take her out when *he again went to *ee. Thiitbe merchant* have done for the encouragement of enter Erize among the pilot*. The cuitom had, however, sen established, and the merchant* hare almoit uni versally continued it, great a* have been their provoca tion* from the New York pilots, and their accommoda tion* from the Jersey pilot*." In order that the public may ktow who aretho "monopolist*," I will state a few facts, which can be substantiated at any time. The six New York licensed pilot*, composing the company of the "pilot-boat New York," have piloted into port, from the drat of July last to the present time, sixty-seven vessels, many having been boarded one hun dred and fifty miles at sea, occupying from two to six day* to pilot them in; thirty-one of whieh (including twelve packet-ships) they have not been permitted to pi lot to *ea; most of them having boon taken out by the ?commissioner'* pilot*.u Allow m* to give you the name* of some of the very many vessels Taken, during the same period, from the New York State pilots, and given to au individual licensed by tka "meruhauts1 com missioners," with the gross amount of pilotage: (fommhtion Shift.

To the Enron or the Heeald? Sir !?On the 9th of January laat, under the bead of " Improvement* in the Electro Magnetic Telegraph," en article appeared in the Herald, noticing a patent that had been granted me by the Commlaaioner of Patent*, for a mode of aatabliahing independent circuit* for working telegraph register* where but one wire i( u*ed aa the con .ucto- oT the electric, between the two point* in communication That notice called out a letter, publiahed in tb* He rali, Jan. 13tb, signed "O. H.Hicks," in which it la de nied that I am the inventor of the improvement fur which I have obtained a patent, and in which Mr. Sem'l Colt it referred to a* the inventor, In Juatice to my own charac'er and claim*, I wrote a communication in anawer to the letter ol " A 11 Hiclta,'' on tb* day of it* appearance In the Herald accompanied by an affidavit from Mr Joaeph P. Naah. fixing the time of malting my invention prior to my acquaintance with Mr. Colt, or hi* viait to the telegraph office, at 113 Broadway, referred to in the letter of " O H Hicks."? The crowded atat* of your column* prevented the ep pearance of that oomunioation ; hut time ha* effectually settled the queition, by giving Mr. Colt and " O. H. Hick* " time to prove themielve* ignorant of my inven tion, or of any plan to eatabliah an independent circuit both way* on one wire. In that letter, " O. II. Hloka" ?ay*, " I do not deem it n*oe**aiy to add any thing more to thia communication, unless it be to call your attention to the well known fact that Mr.Colt haa conatructed two line* of telegraph, to be operate d on tbi* plan; on* from thia city to the offing. completed on the 7th of September laat, and one from Boston to the offiog of that harbor, completed about the 2Mh of the *am* month ; during the contraction of which, the arrangement* of Mr. Colt, for operating hi* batterie*, on hi* improved plan, could not have eacaped the observation of Mr. Cornell." Now for the fact* in the case. The Boaton and Offing line.of telegraph ha* never been completed end put in operation on any plan, and the New York and Coney Island line haa been completed aa far a* Brooklyn, and put in operation within the laat few weeks, (aiuce the date of "O. H. Hicka'a '? letter,)on the plan of Morse's de pendent circuit. It 1* true that Mr. n'olt ha* had batte ries at both eud* of his line,but up to the present time be has not succeeded in working his line with independent circuit* ; his two batteries, when used at the extreme ends of hi* line, have been both thrown in ti.o same cir cuit, and hi* register* worked with the closed or depend ent circuit. Mr. Colt may, (knowing that independent circuits can be established,) ultimately succeed in hitting on the pro per arrangement to produce independent circuit* ; but his failure, thus far, to effect it, even with the assistance of "O H Hicks," proves conclusively that there ie no foundation in truth in the assertions made in " O. H Hicks'* " letter. Youre, respectfully, E. CORNELL. New York, Feb. 33,1846. Court of General Heulont. Before Recorder Tallmsdge and Aldermen Stoneall and Mate role. John McKaon, Esnr., Dietrict Attorney. Fie. 33.?Sentences of Honeyman alia* South, and Mil ler aliae Cupid, poetponed.?On the court assembling to day, with a view of paaainf aentenoe in the caee of Jamee Miiler aliae Cupid, one of the barge robbers, the District Attorney moved for a suspension of judgment, on the ground that there is another indictment pend ing against him, for pioking the pocket of Mr. Jamea Prentiss, of money and papers of great value ; and on which indictment it is proposed to bring him to trial at an early day. The sentence was accordingly deferred. Th e sentence in the case of James Honeyman alias Smith, an accomplice of Miller, was also deferred, in consequence of the District Attorney having failed to present certain amendments to a bill of exceptions pre pared in behalf of the prisoner, by one of his counsel, Thomas Warner, Esq. The matter will, of course, now remain in itatu quo until the next term. Postponement of Decision.?The court intimated that in the case of Joseph C. Ashley, as well as in several other cases, which had been fully argued by the respective counsel engaged, they were then prepared to announce their opinion, but on account of the February term of the court having expired on Saturday night last, it would be an extrajudicial proceeding on the part of the court, to give their decision at the present term. The views of the court, in these cases, were accordingly withheld un til the next term. Court of Common Pleas. Boiore Judge Ingraham. Fes. 33.? Edward J. Jaques vs. tVm. Jones, Sheriff, fc. This was an action under the statute,to recover from the Sheriff" two quarters rent, (amounting to about $1100,) of a house in Park Place, known as the Perk Place House, it appeared that in 1849, the plaintiff demised the house to a man named Oeorge O. Elliott, and that in 1834, one Piatt Adams obtained a judgment against El liott in the Supreme Court for $3,373 33. It also appear ed that in April, 1845, an execution was issued, and a levy made on the furniture of Elliott. Objections were alterwards made to the legality of the levy, and a mo tion was made to the Supreme Court to set aside the execution. The motion came on at Albany in June following, and it appeared, from the facts, that the Court settled the sum for which the execution ought to issue, and that a seoond levy was made on the 7th of June, under which the whole of the property was sold, and produced somewhere about $900; that there must, at all events, have been some in formality in the proceedings. Before the second levy was made, another quarter's rent beceme due, and plain tiff served a notice on the sheriff, claiming it and the previous quarter, and requiring him to pay it over. The ?heriff refused, and plaintiff brings this action, contend ing the first levy was illegnl?first, because it was not then known for what sum the first execution should issue: and secondly, because the sheriff had not seen the whole of the property, took no inventory of it, nor never had the oontrol of it. For the defence, it is con tended that the first levy was legal; that Elliot was ap Erised of the levy at the time ; that the furniture was itt in his possession, at his request, and that he, with his mother, entered into a bond that it should be forth coming. It also contended, that the bond operates seen estopel to the plaintiff's right to question the first levy. At this stage ~f the proceedings, the Court adjourned. Before Judge Daly. Samuel S.

The defence was, that the lease was never delivered by the lessees, and also, that there had been a ttiiwl settle ment between the parties in October, 1843, at which time the plaintiff re-let the premises to another tenant, and received rent up to May, 1845.

Oeorge B. Moremood vs. Richard Patrick et aL?This was an action of attachment. The plaintiff, in this suit, is a resident of Wales, and purchased, at the request of the defendant, a large lot of looking glass plates, which proved to be inferior to those ordered. Advances having been made upon them quite equal to their value, and they not proving to be of use to the defendant, (I'atrick,) he issued an attachment, and bad it served upon some personal property of the plaintiff's, under the statute which recognises propertyof absent or aon resident debt ors as liable to attachment We will give a more full and detailed report of this case to-morrow.

Naval Movkmxnts in thx Gulp.?Pxnsacola. Feb. 9, 1846.?The small squadron under command of Com.

The U. 8. sbip Falmouth, Commander Jarvis, bearing tha broad pennant of the Commodore, aod tho John Adams, Cammandsr MoCluney, depai ted this morn ing: and the steam frigate Mississippi, Cent. Fitzhugh with the sloop-of-war St. Marys, Commander Saunders, ill probably sail during the day or to-morrow. , Tho brig Somen will remain here, at anchor off the town, in readinesa to convey any despatches which may arriva for tha Commodore or the Minister at Mexico. On what service the squadron is bound has not trans pired, but various rumors srs afloat respecting its des tination. Some say that the Commodore is bound for Aransas Bay , others that ho will bear down upon Tam pico for the purpose of blockading tha harbor: othen again, that ha is going down directly to Vera Cruz, to moor the fleet at tha old station off Sacriflicos, thsrh to await the arrival of a reinforcement, consisting of several frigates, said to bo making ready for active service ? The frigate Ran tan, from the coast of Brazil, is on her way, and if she sailed at the time appointed, may be ex pected hero in a week at fhrthest The frigates Cumberland and Potomac are coming down without delay, if current reports are to ba relied upon, and wa may yet hope that a respectable naval forco will ba organized, manned and equipped, so as to Insure succeia, if compelled to open the bell it San Juan de Clue. That castle ia at present in a better con dition than at any former period. Thay have mounted on its ramparts a formidable array of large caliber Paixhan guns, with French gunners to fight them. The awful experience, in tha explosion of a magazine, effect ed by Admiral Baudin, has taught tham the necessity ol securing in impenetrable compartments tbe death-deal ing materiel, so that no accident ol a similar nature can again take place from the bunting ol a Paixhan shot, and tho former ridiculous absurdity of allowing a hostile fleet to take up its most favorable position, as did the French with their steamers, is net again likely to occur at any time hereafter , so that it we should make an at tack upon that fortress, without being well prepared, tho results would be disastrous. Of that faot reasonable calculaters cannot entertain a doubt.
