The Capture of JMatamora#?.Wlut lit the Parpnir of the Government I Now that General Taylor lias taken possession of Matatnoras?for particulars see outside? and tlie American flag waves over that town, it begins to be a very important topic of en quiry and discussion, what the plan of the government is, in regard to future operations against Mexico ! The state of our commercial relations with the whole world, and the position of our affairs with England, all concur in giving an intensity to this enquiry that will vent itself in u variety of ways, until the puryosc ol the govern ment shrill be fully developed by future events.? At present, the very doubt and uncertainty that hang over the future operations of the campaign, creates an absorbing interest in the public mind, puts a stop to enterprise, and causes a degree ol hesitation in every thing connected with the com mercial operations of the country. In this condition of doubt and uncertainty hang ing over the operations in Mexico, we are driven to the necessity of referring to the only source ot information with which we are vouchsafed, and that is the otficial organ of the government at Washington. That curious and interesting jour nal, (the Daily Union,) since the commencement of the war, has assumed many phases, the most prominent of which is that the war will be con tinued?that it will be a war of invasion?that it will be prosecuted up to the very walls oi'Mexico ?until every thing required by the administration shall be conceded, granted, anil guaranteed by the Mexican government. This pronwwinmtnto, to open the 44 halls of the Montezumas," as it has been facetiously called, is very well as far it goes; but the difficulty at all times with the organ is, to understand what it really means. Like the re sponses of the ancient oracles, the words of the organ at Washington must be understood by de- 1 ciphering it directly contrary to what it says.? Its language has, since its existence, been as enigmatic, as to the r?al purposes o( the go vfrmnent, as the hieroglyphics on the obelisk of Luxor, or Medine Abu. In 1845, when , the government offerod the forty-ninth degree to the British government, on which to settle the Oregon question, the organ authoritatively denied that fact, and claimed the whole of the territory down to 04 40. When Mr. Slidell was ?-ent to Mexico on a mission of peace, the organ i denied that fact, too, and held exactly the oppo- | site, and said that war was at hand. When, in ! the middle of last winter, the government had , come to the determination again to look upon the J ?19th parallel as the best basis of negotiation, the j organ denied that fact, and look strong ground for j 54 40, per fat nut ntfat. When General Taylor I was ordered to the Rio Grande, and the people ? began to expect a collision, the organ denied such | an inference, and proved, with the accuracy of an Euclid, that no such event as war would follow. These are facts showing the peculiar character of the government organ; and, judging from these facts, and its present course regarding the war with Mexico, we are very much disposed to be lieve that when the IVathington Union is bellow ing for an advance of the army 44 to the halls of the Montezumas," the President and the adminis tration have almost come to the resolution to ac cept proposals of peace, and settle ariairs amica bly. The history of the last eighteen months has shown that we must read the organ contrariwise, and infer what the action of the government may be from what the organ denies with an affidavit. We are disposed, therefore, to think that the administration has no disposition to prosecute the war Ih-voihI the taking of Matatnoras, and that it will avail itself of the offer of any government that Mexico may have to come to terms of peace with the United States. Circumstances, however, are taking place in Mexico, in consequence of the recent events on the 11 io Grande, that may prevent such a determination or such a plan an the part of the President. Mr. Polk is a President under the control of accidents more than any one of his predecessors. It is possi ble that the Northern States of Mexico may, in the presence of aid and assistance from the American army, now in possession of Matainoras, declare (heir entire separation from the central govern ment, erect a confederacy of their own, establish their independence, and prepare the way in a few years to join this confederacy as Texas did. If such an event should take place, the Mexican war will soon be at an end, at least on the frontier.? Then, perhaps, our government may think it pru dent when the proper season approaches, next winter, to strike a blow at Mexico by reducing, if we can, the fortress of San Juan dc I'lloa. At present, however, we rather think that Mr. Polk, judging from the organ and from the general feel ing brought forth, and the popularity of General Taylor, who may become very formidable to some of the political aspirants at Washington, that the administration has already got enough of this war. The most probable result of prosecuting such a war would be the manufacture ofmore than one or two fresh candidates for the Presidency. The feeling throughout the country produced by the events that have already taken place, indi cates that a total subversion of the two old parties is now about to take place, and that the lines which have hitherto separated the democracy and the wlugs will be totally effaced by the events on the Rio Grande. In this state of volcanic transi tion, it appears very ridiculous to seethe Piesi dent and General Scott quarrelling with each other relative to the command of an army which is now lighting bravely under General Taylor, while they are lighting over such silly affairs at Washington On the whole, we think that Mr. Polk is in favor of an early peace; but how long he may be so, is impossible to tell. The Trial of Wyxn at Avburn.?The Court was engaged all yesterday m the effort to empan nel * jury, ud have not. n yet, succeeded in getting even a single juror. The pannel ha* been exhausted. and a motion wa* made last evening by the District Attorney, to summon 300 juror*, which ??i opm>?e<! t,y counsel (or prisoner, who insisted that it waa sufficiently manifest at this stage of the cauae, that an impartial jury could not be had. The Court decided that a new panel, confuting of 100 juror*, should be summoned, aud that it w not yet sufficiently ascertained that an impartial jury could not be had; 4<J have been rejected on the challenge for principal cause; ft on challenge to favor, and 3 on per emptory challenge. Much doubt iaeatertained whether ? jury can be obtained?the prisoner having the right of V> premptory challenges. The Court adjourned to 1? o'clock this morning. This morning the Court met at 10 o'clock; the MheridTreturned 13 of the 100 jurors who ?were ordered to be summoned. The Court adjourned till o'clock, to wait the return of the panel by the Sheriff?Cerr. Albany F.rtning Journal, June 4. Political Movement*.

Court Calendar?Thla Day. Mrrr.aio* Cocar.? Nn? 908.31. 30, in. 41, 47, M, At, H to 71 inclusive The Webster InTMtlfaUon. We learn from Washington that the Committee appointed by the House of Representatives to conduct the investigation relative to the charges made against the purity ot'Mr. Webster, us a pub lic man, will very soon ninke a full report, acquit ting that distinguished statesman of any malfea sance in offiee, or any thing that looks like corrup tion or impropriety, during his short and splendid career as Secretary of .State, and successful nego ciation of the north-eastern boundary question. Mr. Tyler, the ex-President, has been at Wash ington for several days, under examination before that Committee, and has testified in the fullest and ablest manner, to the purity, ability, impar tiality and uprightness of Mr. Webster, during his tenure of office as Secretary of State, while a member of his administration. i We never did believe in any of those charges against Mr. Webster's reputation. No doubt, Mr. Webster, like all men, has his specs, as the sun has its spots to dim occasionally the bright sur face; but there is scarcely a man in thiscountry who ' has passed through such trying scenes, such won- j derful vicissitudes in politics?who can lay his ! hand on his heart and consider himself more free from impurity of motive, frailty of purpose, or of | any wrong act than Mr. Webster. We are grati fied that the character of this distinguished man will be established beyond the possibility of doubt; and that his enemies will be driven back to their dark recesses, to feed on their own vitals here after. No matter to what jiolitieul party any man may l>e attached, every man, every American? and all this "one of the greatest countries of the globe," as Lord John Russell calls it?ought to be proud of sustaining the reputation of their states men. The name of Mr. Webster, in Europe, has been associated in such a way with the country, that a stain upon his reputation would almost be j u stain on the country. Then come Clay, ami Cal houn, and llenton, and many other eminent men j belonging to both parties?astaiu upon the repu tation of such men as these would also be a stain upon the country. Mr. Webster bus aided in no i small degree lo shed honor upon his country, ' throughout the civilized world ; aud we are grati fied tliat he has come out of this investigation j brighter and better than ever. In these remarks, we do not mean to indulge in any strictures upon the conduct of Mr. Inger soll, as many of the ultra friends of Mr. Webster ; seem inclined to do. Mr. Ingersoll had, no doubt, some foundation for the course which he has pur sued towards Mr. Webster. It was the misfor tune of the Tyler Administration to have attached | to it bauds of the most desperate, reckless and j unprincipled political adventurers, that ever in jured any administration in this country. By some of those that injured the Tyler Administra tion, wo have no doubt, Mr. Ingersoll has been ' led astray, induced by good enough motives, to ' adopt the course which he lias taken; but we , trust that as the mist clears away and truth be. ' gins to lift itself 011 high, the influence of all those j miserable beings who contrived by falsehood and ; corruption to deceive Mr. Tyler, during his admi- j nistration, and defame the character of that ad ministration, will be put an end to by this inves- | 'ligation. Whilst speaking of tho unfortunate position in which Mr. Tyler had been placed, and tho de ceptions that were practised upon him, by office seekers and office holders of his day, we may as well mention that the evidence of the ex-Prosi dent will probably be soon required in this city, to bring forth the truth, on another, though small er matter in connection with the character and purity of his administration. It will be recollect ed that about a year ago a person of the name of , Parinelee, who had been a recipient of favors from Mr. Tyler, proeured an indictment, by sooie moans or other, from a grand jury at Buffalo against the proprietor of this Journal, but from various considerations that case had been post poned and put off, till recently, when there is now a probability of its being brought up for trial before the Circuit Court in this city, at which time the evidence of Mr. Tyler will be required to elucidate the propriety of his own conduct and the purity of his intentions,and to show what spe cies of deception was practiced upon him, by which his presidency Jjecame so unpopular. On Thursday of this week, an order was received | from Judge Jewett of the Supreme Court, sitting at Albany, by which the case has been trans ferred lor trial before the Circuit Court of this city, and for the purpose of bringing it be- | fore the public. This order is founded on the fact, that all the principal witnesses who can shed light 011 this subject, as connected with Mr. Tyler, re side in this city. The witnesses will be the offi- | cers in the city of New York attached to the Ge- , nernl Government. Among them will be Edward | Curtis, ex-Collector of the Customs, Robert C. Wet more, ex-Navy Agent, John L. Graham, ex-Post Master, besides several other public officers, not necessary to enumerate. We also believe that the evidence of several distinguished officers of the government at Washington, even that of dr. Webster himself, together with the evidence of John Tyler, will be required. This trial of an indictment will bring to light another branch of the deceptions which were practised during the administration of John Tyler, 110 doubt unknown to him or to his best friends ; but for which his Presidency has suffered in repu tation both before and sincc. Mr. Tyler is no doubt a much more honest man than many give him cre dit for. lie did not know the sinuosities of the Nor thern politicians, mid he was according!^frequent ly duped and led into errer, during his period of , power. The investigation, now about closing, while it clears up the reputation of Daniel Web ster, will also take a load of obloquy off the shoul ders of Mr. Tyler. The trial, which will proba bly take place before Judge Edmonds, will tleve lope an equally singular series of" little events," connected with matters in this city, and show, in another light, how Mr. Tyler was deceived in little as well as great things. In this case, Mr. Tyler's evidence will be required ; and we have no doubt, as soon as the trial comes on, lie will readily come to New \ork, as he has gone to Washington, in order to clear up those views by which his cha racter has suffered under certain acts, during his eventful career. We have every reason to believe that the ad ministration of Mr. Tyler, notwithstanding all the obloquy and un|>opularity which it suffered, will yet rise higher in public estimation, the more it is examined, and the deeper the researches go into its private hi?tory.

Locked tip Tick Ntw York Prum.?A few weeks since, the pilots of the city of New York, in anticipation of the (tilftciiltiws with Mexico, made an offer to the government of their boats and men, to be used in such a manner as the war department should think l>est. To this patriotic otrer of the New York pilots, the Hon. W. L. Marcy, Secretary of War, ha* re turned the following reply :? Was DcrARTMENT, June 1, 1840. Gentlemen 'The President ha* referred to thi* De partment your letter to him, offering the service! of your selves, boats, and somen. Kor this prompt and patriotic offer, which is duly appreciated, the President desires your acceptance of his coolial thanks, and though there u no necessity at present for its acceptance, it will not be forgotten should such necessity arise. Very respectfully your obed't. serv't.. W. L. MARCY, Secretary of War. Jas. Burger, F.sq., and others, pilots of New York, city of New York. The New York pilot boats, thirteen in number, are remarkable for their fast sailing and easy management, and are commanded and manned by men who have been born and bred in the business. These boats would be very useful in sailing around the Mexican ports and harbors, and cutting out privateers, under the very muzzles of the Mcxican batteries. They are such fast sailers that even the steamers can hardly beat thein. They would also bo exceedingly useful in running up the shallow Mexican rivers where larger ships could not go. In a great variety of ways would these pilot boats be useful; and, commanded by the patriotic New York pilots, would do great service in their country's cause. Theatrical and JMualcnI. Pahk Tiikatkk.?Let the weather be what it may, the appearaucc of the Keans in "Richard III." will always draw a good house at the Park, and last night gave an illuitration ot'the assertion. The applause was loud and frequent, brought down, at times, by the splendor of the scenery and appointments, and agaiii by the ueble acting of the groat star*, Mr. and Mrs. Kean. It is but repetition of our previously exprossed opiuion to praise the manner in which this finest of Shakspcare's tragedies is repre sented at " Old Drury and it would be unjust to speak of it in other than laudatory terms. " Richard 111." is to be performed again to-night?it cannat be seen too often. Bowtir.?Another thunder storm prevented the at tendance, at this popular theatre, from being as large as usual, last evening. Mr. Scott appeared as l>on Cssar de Bazau. in the popular drama of that name; and was well sustained by Mr. Clarke as Don Jose, and by Mrs. Phillips as Maritana. After the play, Mr. Robert Caunt, brother of Ben Caunt, the celebrated English nugili<t, and himself no mean proficient in the art of self-do:cnce, appeared on the stage in a set-to with Mr. J. MeCleester. The exhibition appeared to afford much satisfaction to tho audience, the fast round being encored and received with much applause. This evening " LI Ilyder," " Tom and Jerry," and the " Lady and the Devil." Mr. Caunt will appear in a sot-to in the course of the evening. Greenwich Thkatiik.?The " bill of fare " presented for last evening's entertainment at this popular place of amusemeat and recreation, could not fail to draw a crowded house. We had no less than four pieces?to be sure, in part cut down?presenting a rich treat to the admirers of the drama ; and very judiciously and taste fully arrangod, affording full scone for the "able powers of tho entire company, in every department, from " (Jrave to gay, from lively to severe." Mr. Chapman had a very respectable benefit, the even ing's performance being selected for the occasion. In the " Wandering Minstrel," Mitchell was rich in his fa vorite character of Jim Baggs, and was called out at the end of the performance. To which were added, " A Husband at Sight;" " The Virginia Mummy," and " A Hundred I'ound Note," presenting, certainly, a very at tractive bill. Accordingly the house was well filled. Rice's Ginger Blue, in tne "Virginia Mummy," inde pendent of any thing else, could not fail to draw together groups of admirers. This new theatre bids fair to rival some of its "up-town" competitors. The enterprising pro prietors have snared no expense in fitting it up, and in se lecting high talents to make it acceptable to the public. The able management and entire arrangements are of the highest character, and during the summer months, in particular, must provo a source of deep attraction in this vicinity. The orchestra is admirably conducted ; and as we profess to be ardent admirers of the "concert ol sweet sounds," and know some "leetol 'bout dem diggins," we do not hesitate to offer the humble tribute of our appro bation, as to the excellent taste and execution displayed in this department of the theatre. Casti.k Gabdkis .?Now that the summer has opened the leaves, and the scenery of the auburbs is delightful I to view, whore can the citizens spend a more rural, ra tional evening than at this delightful retreat? The beau tiful promenade, commanding the most enchanting view either as regards land or sea scenery ; and while tho visitor is charmed by all around him, he hears within tho 1 soft melodious tones of Meyrer's orchestra, filling the mind with the most delightlul thoughts and pleasing sen- I sations, which, combined with the healthful atmosphere j he is inhaling, is calculatcd to givo strength and health to the most debilitated constitution.

The Literary Committee appointed to decide on the merits of the pieces presented in competition for the prize of $f>00 ottered by Mr. Daniel Marble for the best three act drama handed in bv the first of June, have decided in favor of a comedy entitled "Family Ties," and the money has been paid over to the successful author. Madame Tico was to givo another concert in Provi dence last evening. Italia* Otkba in Nr.w Osmii.?This delightful species ol entertainment is flourishing in New Orleans. The opera of " Norma " was performed in that city on the 27th ult., and was to have been repeated on the 48th, for the benefit of Signora A. Majoccni. The company were to have left in a day or two lor Mobile. The Syracuse Star states that Sands, Lent k Co.'s Cir cus has been crowded during the whole time they have exhibited there. In Lancaster, Ta , on Monday last, Howe It. Co.'s Circus drew such crowds of people, that many could not obtain admittance on the first day, and the exhibitions were ob liged to be kept up for several days in that place, in order to enablo all to witness the performances. Madame Ma carte. the great female rider of the age, seems to be the chief attraction. This circus is proceeding through Pennsylvania, and is to stop at Harrisburg and all the principal towns of the interior. Ma perl or Court. Beiore Chief Justice Jones. Jl-jfK 6.?Jt'n. Rushworth vs Daniel Emhury.?This was an action for malicious prosecution. From the state ment of plaintiffs counsel, it appeared that his client is an hotel keeper in Philadelphia, and that defendant at the time the cause of action accrued, was an officer of the Long Island Bank. In the summer of 1842, a man named Vantine or Vandine, a poiter of the bank, while crossing lrom tliis city to Brooklyn, was robbed of $35,000, and amongst this sum weie two or three one thousand dollar notes. Shortly after the robbery a number of notorious thieves, who were all known to the police, were arrest ed on suspicion of being concerned in it, but upon an in vestigation before the police magistrates, the evidence against tliam was found to be insufficient and they were ail discharged?and up to July, 1843, no clue was found to lead to a discovery of the robbery or tne persous con cerned in it. At this time a cricket match was to come off'in this city, between the New York and Philadelphia Cricket Clubs, in consequence of which a large number of |iersons from Philadelphia was attracted here, and amongst others the plaintiff, who is a sporting character, to witness the match and to bet if they thougnt fit. The plaintiff" put up at Clark and Brown's, in Maiden lano, and there met with a man named Shaw with whom he had before some slight acquaintance. At the time Rush worth arrived in tliis city he had with him a bill for (1090 together with some other small bills, amounting al toge'her to about $1050. The note for $1000 he hailed to Shaw to procure for liim small ones for the purpose of betting Shaw accordingly procured the small notes and deposited the $1000 bill in the Thccnix Bank, from which it went into the Union Bank and from there was sent to the Long Island Bank, where it was pronounced to he one of the notes stolen from Vantine, the porter. On the 7th of August, 1843, Rushworth was arrested in Philadelphia, on an affidavit made by Mr. Embury, and brought before the then mayor of that citv, Mr. Scott, on a charge of having received a $1000 note, knowing it to be stolon. On this occasion be was inquired by Mayor Scott to enter into bonds in $-J,S00, with sureties for his ap|>cnrance before him, the Mayor, iu ten day*, to answer the charge. At tho expiration of the time, he ap|ieared before Mayor Scott, but Mr. hmbu ry did not appear nnd no charge was mail# against him. In the mean time, the defendant procured other affidavits, laid them before the Grand Jury of this city and obtained a bill of indictment, and thon applied to Governor Bauck for a requisition. t& the Governor of the State of Tennsyl. vania, upon which the latter granted a warrant, anil Rushworth was again arrested in Philadelphia and brought on to this city, and required to give bail for his appearance in $10,000 ; and, finally, a nolle prosequi was entered on the indictment, and Rushworth's bail dis charged. After the plaintiffs evidence had been gone through, defendant's counsel moved for a non-suit, o.i the ground that it was uecestry the plaintiff should prove his acquittal and want of probable cause. In this case it was I contended that want of probable cause was not proven? that the entry of a nollt proteaui was not an acquittal; it was merely an adjournment of the cause without a day; new process might at any time afterwards be issued on the iudictment, and the trial of plaintiff proceeded with.

Beside tnese, there are probably a hundred more who are not " regulars," but practico on their own hook, with " roots and yarbs," " Injun medicine," hot water, cold water, and the like. The health of the New Yorkers, one would think, was well caied for; in some streets, the continuation of shin gles nailed U|khi window-shutters, with " Dr." on them, strongiy reminds one of the appoarance of houses in one of the patent; never-ending galleries. The proportion of physicians to the whole inhabitants of the city is aliout one to Ave hundred ; although many of the five hundred, thank heaveu, never see a | hysician from one year's end to the other, and many other poor creatures have the

pleasure of seeing the face of one each day. In this big city of professions, it is a rather funny idea to analyze the means by which they live on oach other. The phy sicians phlebotomize the clergynun and lawyers?the clergymen preach to the law) ers and doctonj and the lawyers pocket the fees of their clients of all professions and trades. We saw, yesterday, in passing through one of the small streets up town, the sign of one of the learned professors of physic, which, to say the least, is entirely original, and exhibits the versatility of talent possessed by the worthy professor. The sign is daubod with ink o|>on a pine board, and reads as follows " Martha Biggs cuies all sorts of wens and kansurs, tik dulleroo, kolTik, goin out to days' work, and all other nervus diseases.

Trial for Grand Larceny.?Louisa Roach was then placed at the bar on a charge of stealing a gold watch, I alleged to be worth about $40, from a person named Peter ' Hokins, on the night of the 7th of May last. On the part of the prosecution, the complainant Hokins deposed, that while walking in Broadway on the evening of tlio 7th of 1 May, he was accosted by the prisoner, who induced him to accompany her to her room, at No. b-i Anthony street: ' that he took oft' his boots and put his watch into one of them, with a view of concealment; that after remaining with her for a short time, he proceeded to put on his boots, when he missed his watch, and immediately asked the prisoner for it?but sho denied having any knowledge of it, and told witness that he had no watch; witness then peremptorily demanded the watch and charged the accused with having taken it At this mo ment a man knocked at the room door, and inquired in a rough manner, who was in the room with his wife, and demunded admittance; tho prisoner then endeavored to, induce witness to leave the house with all possible des patch?but, witness considering that it was a mere scheme to get rid of him, refused to leave until he could have his watch returned him. Witness then found a policeman j and communicated the loss of his watch, &c. A search ! was made in the house for the watch, but without suc cess. The watch, howmr, was subsequently feund by officer Appleyard, of the 8th ward. Officer ArrLKYARu deposed, that while on duty at the corner of Church anil Anthony streets, he heard the complainant charge the prisoner with stealing a gold watch, and in return she abused him for daring to charge her with such an ofl'ence ; in consequence of this charge being made against the prisoner, witness entered the room occupied by her, and made a search for the watch, but without success ; witness then conducted the parties to the station house, where, from some remarks made by the prisoner, he was induced to believe that the watcn was still concealed in the room, and went there a second time, and made another search, which resulted in finding the watoh concealed under some ashes in the fire-place. The accused then admitted that she took the watch, but did so in consequence of the complainsmt having given her some spurious bank bills in payment of certain favors conferred: and that her only object was to insure the ex change ef good money for that which had been paid her. Wm. M. Price then addressed the jury at considerable length, in behalf of the accused. The District Attorney followed on the part of the people The jury, after a brief consultation, rendered a verdict of guilty of a petit larceny only, (the watch being of mock auction quality,) and the Court sentenced her to be imprisoned in the .Penitentiary for the term of six months. The Court then adjourned until to-morrow morning. Mormon Intelligence. I From the Hancock ?agle, May 33.] Demonstrations on the Fifteenth.?It will be re membered, that in anticipation of an outbreak on the l&th inst, a proclamation was issued by Major Warren, advi sing all well-disposed persons, to remain at home, and warning those who meditated mischief, that they would be dealt wirh "as tho law directs." We are happy to say that the critical day passed over without the commission of any overt act on the part of the mob. Between one and two hundred assembled at Pontoosuc, but as the bet ter-disposed portion of the meeting was opposed te the commencement of hostilities, a quarrel took place be tween this section and the Agnting party. One man snap ped a musket at the bead of another, and for a time it was supposed that an opportunity would have been afforded tho belligerents to gratify their rowdy propensities by a sanguinary tussle with each other. We understand that the "meeting" wound up business by an indulgence i in copious libations of the ardent, and those who could get nway, straggled home at night-fall.? The assemblage at Carthage turned out a miserable aflair. The indignation of the leaders found, vent in bullying 1 speeches, and as the consequences of an overt act of vio lence stared them lull in the face, it was thought proper to dismiss. At Warsaw all passed off* quietly. The fact is. the anti-Mormon party has separated into two distinct sections, and the views of one section are diametrically opposed to those of the other. AH the respectable mem bers of the party are averse to vielence, ana appear satis fied with present prospects. The mobocrats, who imm ' bcr about one-tenth of the whole, are for a row and a fight, either with or without justification. We arc satis, fiod that this party cannot muster 300 strong, and the ! surrounding counties will not countenance their acts. A respectable anti- Mormon from McDonough county, j expresses the opinion that they cannot obtain the aid of five men in that county. We hear of no ; other outrages since tho scourging of Mr. Rea.? ' Threatening letters have been written to many who are not Mormons, ordering them ort' within a limited time. Judge Crane, formerly of Henderson county, who hai purcha?ed Mormon property and moved into Han- i cock, was formally notified by the mob te " clear out."? The judge and his son came into town a few days ago for arms, and the probability is that he will not relin quish his property without a contest. At Nauvoo, the " excitement has entirely subsided. The new citizens i are well provided with the means ol resisting any attack which may be made, but do not now anticipate a difficul ? ty. They rely altogether upon the vigilance and energy of Major Warren and his small, but efficient detachment. Hancock Circuit Corar?Some of our citizens who returned from I arthoge, yesterday, represent the the present aspect of alt airs as ntliet and peaceable.? All apprehension of an outbreak has subsided, and the business of the court progresses with regularity and de spatch Judge Purplo presides, and Captain Morgan and Lieut Prentiss officiate as officers of the court. Rqck wcll, (who was brought from Quificy for the purpose.) was arraigned on Wednesday, and took a change of ve nue to Jo Dalies county. lie will be tried at the next : term in Galena. Majer Warren is on duty at Carthage, with part of his command. Sheriff' Pitman, of Adams county, has Rockwell in charge, and will re tarn with him to Quincy immediately. I The Mormon Remnant.?A large majority of the ! Mormons have alreadv left the State, and those who still remain, are huabanding their resources and working hard in order to procure an outfit. Most of the farmers have either disposed of their property or leh it la the bends of I agents. The city is half deserted, the bulk of Improved property having been sold and the houses vacated. Hun dreds or families are preparing to occupy the former ' homes of the Mormons, as soon as it becomes apparent that mobs have been suppressed and order predominates over anarchy. We know of many who are but waiting j for the restoration of tranquility to ?aove in; and under ; the better auspices which now begin to shed their in fluence upon the place, It cennot be doubted that Nauvoo will command a lirge population and enjoy a permanent prosperity. Much of the Mormon property has been improved by an expenditure of great labor and con siderable sums of money, andas they have been compel I led te sacrifice it for less than one third its real value ' end throw away the result of years of industry, it may be suppoeed that the parting is not without reluctance. 1 AU have resolved to leave, however, and those whe an yet amongat us but await the transfer of property to Set ?way. The poor will have to rely upon the Tneans to ne derived from the sale of church estates, and collections from abroad.

It was iu conse quence of some suggestions of witness that Justice Drink er caused Vanderbilt to put hia name on the bill. Knock E. Cam*?Know* Mitchell was the cause of his being arrested ; he was arrested twice ; he was aware of the post note being stolen ; in January Mr. Lewis call ed at our office, and, in consequence of the information given by him, witness arrested Mitchell, and took him to the house of Justice Drinker ; some conversation took place in presence of Drinker in relation to the arreat. and witness impressed upon him the necessity of holding Mitchell; next morning, witness was told that Mitchell bad been bailed ; witness and his partner went to the of fice and asked the Justice if he had baited Mitchell: the Justice said that he had ; witness said he must have given straw bail, and if the Justice did not get him back he would have him impeached ; Mitchell lias not been since arrested, although a reward was offered for his appre hension, and witness has been in search of him. George Wilkes examined?Gave the same testimony as Mr. Camp. (ikosoi Reltea was again called and examined in relation to the solvency of Tripp, the man who went bail for Mitchell. Thomas Goldino, a police officer, proved that, after the arrest of Mitchell, he waa given in charge to witness; heard the justice say ho thought it was not a bailable of fence ; said he would look over some authorities ; Mit chell mentioned the name of Tripp, who lived h) Mulber ry street, and the Justice directed witness to go with Mitchell to Tripp's house ; witness did so, auu came back again and delivered Mitchell up to the Justice, at the Tombs. j The examination of witness being finished, the Court was adjourned to Wednesday next, at 4 o'clock. United Statea Circuit Court. Before Judge Betts. JfWE 5.? CKarltt E. Letter vt. That. C? N- Smith.? This was an action for assault and battery. The plaintiff was American Consul at Genoa, and the defendant is a citizen of the State of Ohio, lie had been travelling in Europe, and met with Mr. and Mrs. Lester at Leghorn, and tney took passage together in the ship Brooklyn, to return home. When the ship had been out about 30 days Mr. and Mrs. Lester, Mr. Smith, and another pas senger named Sullivan, a member of a firm in Baltimore, happened to be on deck and were speaking of the con duct of the captain. In the courae of the conversation, some comments were made by Mrs. Lester on the rough ness of the captain's manner and conduct during the voy age. Smith, it appeared, took exception to Mrs. Lester's remarks, and saidhe did not wish to be a party to any comments on the captain's conduct; that he was tho com mander of an American vessel,and was entitled to the re spect of his crew and of the passengers. Upon this, Mrs. Lester turned round and playfully said that he, Mr Smith, was toadying the raptai^Lthat morning. Mr. Smith said that if it was a man whoJud so, and if he said it se riously, he would stop him at once by a blow. Mr. Les ter, in a sort of banter, seemed to affirm what his wife said, and went away, but soon after returned, and said, Smith did you not say that if a man made tin remark that Mis. Lester made this morning, you would stop him at once with a blow 7 Smith replied, he did ; then said Les ter, I repeat them in the most serious manner; upon which Smith turned round and struck Mr. Lester a vio lent blow on the bridge of the nose, from which the blood flowed freely ; in consequence of which, Lester, who was, during the voyage, in a delicate state of health from sea sickness, had to be helped to his berth by two persons, and was confined Tor four days. Mr. Cutting appeared for the defendant, and merely read an affidavit made by Mr. Sullivan, which detailed all the circumstances, and from which Mr. Cutting in sisted the jury ought to infer that Mr. Lester was him self the aggressor ; that by his arrogant and overbear ing conduct, the airs and consequence he assumed as an American Consul, during the voyage, he provoked the assault, and disentitled himself to the consideration of a jury. Mr. Altai* Stewart, for the plaintiff, summed up the case in a very humerous speech, which kept the au dience in fits of laughter during its delivery. The JunoE said this was an action seeking damages for an act of personal violence The facts are simply as detailed by the ovidence, and amount to thin : The par ties were fellow passengers on board the ship Brooklyn, on her voyage from the Medeterranoan to this port; an altercation took place between them on the passage, and the defendant struck the plaintiff over tho nose in the presence of his wife and of two other persons ; after | which, plaintiff had to be helped to his berth, and that the blood flowed freely from plaintiff's nose, and was found in his berth and on the bed clothes. It is unnecessary for me to instruct you, gentlemen, that a party on ship board, as well as on land, is entitled to the protection I of the law. Plaintiff therefore, has a proper foundation for ^is action. The defendant does not plead that he was ; justified, or had rightful authority to give the blow, but | you will, however, in determining this question, look solely to the evidence of the Frenchman, and Sullivan, ' which you have heard detailed to you in the course of < this trial. The general rule of law in relation to prosecu tions for assault and battery, is simple and clear The jury will look at the relations in which the parties stood to each other ; that is, whether the blow was given from ( the mere impulse of the moment, or, whether it proceed- ' ed with a cool determination to commit an injury to tha ] person and feelings of the party. These are the view* in which you are to look at this matter. Vou are also to look at the position in society of the parties?and in this respect there seems to be no difference?they are both men of education, and both move in the same rank in so ciety ; *ut when you go into this field, it is a hazardous one, and you must tako care that you do not run wild, because of some importance attached to plaintiff in his pnblic character. Judge Betts continued at some length to address the jury on the facts and evidence adduced in the case, and concluded by telling them the assault had been fully proved, but that the amount of damages was a matter which altogether rested In their discretion. After which, the jury retired, and soon after returned with a ? erdict for plaintiff for $500.

On the 1st of June the government>urplus in the va 1??0r!V 'Uhjact t0 drtft' to $11,478, 064 M. It has been suggested that the government re aort to an issue of treasurynotes for the parpoMof reliev ing the money market and for the purpose of raising funda to carry on the financial operations of the country, con nected with the Mexican war. There is no doubt but that an iuu? of traamry notes would at this time be very de sirable, and would be of saeeh aervice in fscilitstiDg com mercial operations and in the regulation et exehMges but it is a question whether it would be advisable 1br the government to issue treasury notes bearing five or six per cent interest, for several millions of dollars, while It ha* ten or eleven millions of dollars on depoait in all sec tions of the country upon which not a cent of interest la received. We fear it would not be adviaeble at this time, while the government is sacrificing so much interest on, Its surplus, to contract a large debt paying aa interest of fi*e or six per cent ?bJ#cUon w?? n?t ?*iat for any great length of urne, at the rate expenditures have bean made withia epaat month; the present surplus will soon be ex hausted, when the government wiU be compelled to ?ise suppUe. in some way ; and there ia very little doubt th,t Congraas will, before adjournment, pass a special act authorizing the issue of treasury notes. These notes will pass iato general circulation, and the fact of their bearing a good rate of interest, will make them a deslis ble mode of investment, aad much sought after by capi taliata, and by those having little confidence In the float. ting securities In the market,who keep their funds on spe. cial deposit in some of our banks; in this way the money market will be relieved to a certain extnt, as it would draw out capital which ia now inactive and withdrawn from cl?nnels of trade.
