II * NEW YORK HERALD. ??w York, Wednesday, November 3ft, 1946 The Herald for Europe. The Htrald for Europt, to go by the steamship Great Western, which will leave this port tomorrow, will be ready at eleven o'clock. The contents will, as usual, be lull and ample, and will, in part, consist of the otficial despatches of General Taylor and his otlicers, in regard to the taking of Monterey, including General Worth's letters; the latest news from the army and navy; political intelligence from all warts of the country; and the regular amount of commercial, financial, and miscellaneous matter. It will be illustrated by an engruvuig show ing the portion ol Alvarado, its fortifications, and the sand bar in front, as well as the position of our fleet in the late unsuccessful attack on it.

The people of the United States take a greater interest in the affairs of their government, State and national, than those of any other country. Iudeed, it has been remarked of Americans, by intelligent foreigners, that every man therein is a politician, and speaks and acts asil all the weight of government, and the direction of national affairs rested on his own shoulders?that each individual deposits his vote for the candidate he likes, resly canvasses his political actions after he is elected, and as freely condemns them if, in his opinion, they are improper. That, in fact, every 1 individual considers himself part and parcel of tho government. This is undoubtedly true, and we rejoice that it is so. So long as the people act and think in tnis way we need have 110 fears for I the safety of our institutions. The connilir Winter will atford lull smnn for thn exercise of this characteristic trait in our national character. The elections recently held in several States, have completely astounded all political parties, and scattered to the winds the arrangements that had previously been made by the kaders and wirepullers for the presidential j election in 1848. The locofoco party, before then triumphant, are now defeated and reduced to chao<, while the whigs, unaccustomed to success, have not had sufficient time to form a united rule of aotion, but are, like their opponents, earnestly scrutinizing the future, with the view of biinging , to light what time and circumstances alone can develope The anomalous position of the two parties in the State of New York, will no doubt be productive of some rich scenes, and create a 1 more violent fermentation in the political caul- i dron at the next session of the Legislature than was ever seen before. The two parties are so nicely balanced and divided, that it will be a hard matter for one to attain any advantage over the other. They are as two steeds, each eager to outrun the other in the race, and yet with powers so equal, that they keep neck and neck together, and when the goal is reached, neither can be declared the winner ; the judges order a new trial, and the spectators are amused. So it is with the parties in the State of New York; ! the whigs have one house and the democrats , have the other. Neither can gain any political I advantage over the other, although they will exercise all their ingenuity to do so. The Legislatures of Pennsylvania and Ohio will soon come together, and we may expect to see some curious twistings and turnings with them also. Both of these States having repudiated the democrats, and elected a majority of whig representatives, the members of course will devote a portion ol the session to the furtherance of the whig cause, and the election of the Presidential candidate, whoever he may be. Ohio will 110 doubt make as much capital as possible, for Mr. McLean, and prepare his way to receive the nomination of the Harrisburg Convention. But it is towards Washington the eyes of the people will be chiefly directed, not for the sole purpose of ascertaining the views of politicians in regard to the Presidency, although they will no doubt be interesting, but principally to know the course of the party in power in our Mexican relations, the tariff, sub-treasury, the annexation of Mexican territory, and the subject of slavery, and other matters of vital importance to the national prosperity. Tlieso questions interest the country from one extremity to the other, and the discussion of which, together with the working of politicians towards the succession, will make the next session of Congress very important and interesting. The readers of the Herald will, of course, look to this journal for early and correct information of all these things; and we can assure them that we have made arrangements that cannot fail to give satisfaction. We have engaged a corps of reporters and correspondents at Albany,who will give us from day td day, life-like yiictures of the sayings, doings, and meditations of the Legislature. We have also engaged a corps of reporters and correspondents at Washington, possscssing abundant facilities for daguerreotyping the movements in both houses. We have also dispatched thither a gentleman, whose means of nammsinor ABpIv ?rtrl Infrtrmatlnn r j of every thing of interest, will be ample and whose letters from the capitol will be read with the greatest interest. Telegraphic reports will also be daily received. Arrangements are in progress for establishing a corps of correspondents in Columbus, Ohio, and Harrisbtirgh, Pennsylvania, whose services shall be called into requisition in case it should be deemed advisable to do so, and the proceedings of the legislatures of * those States shall be of sufficient importance to justify it. It will be thus seen, that we have anticipated the desire of our patrons, in providing means for supplying them with early news from the most important places this winter. The expense will, of course, be great, but that is a secondary consideration. Evacuation Day.?On the 25th November, 1788, sixty-three years ago, the British, who had taken possession of New York ia 1776, and continued in possession during the war, evacuated the city. In commemoration of its restoration to its proper owners and authorities, die annual return of the day has been always celebrated with parades and festivities; though last year, owing to an unexplained fall in the patriotic barometer, it was paid much less regard to than previously. This day we are to have the old observances revived, and the parades will be of much interest. At sunrise, a salute will be fired on the Battery, uy nits veteran corps 01 aruiiery, unaer Lrensrai Storms ; at 12 M., another salute on the Battery, under direction of General Morris; and in the afternoon Oifeu-dt-joit, under direction of General Hall, in the Park, after the review of the troops by the Corporation. The division of troops under General ijandford, is the one appointed for duty, comprising the 1st brigade of Light Horse Artillery, under General Storms?1st brigade of Fort Artillery, under General Hall?and the 6th brigade Artillery, under General G. P. Morris. The line will be formed at 10 o'clock, on Fifth avenuo?the right resting on the Washington Parade Ground. Major General Gaines will be escorted to the ground, and review the troops at that plate; alter which they will march through the principal streets to the Park, where they will pass in review before the Mayor and Aldermen. By the way, the latter mentioned dignitaries, with a sudden lit ot eoonomy, refnsed, at their Us: meeting, to appropriate vftMl Mr expenses attendant upon toe usual celebration of the day? cm* ofthelr number thinking the strm might be better expended tor a monument to General Jackson. If the same distinguished body would use the amount expended for their " incidentals" for the purpose, they might be enabled, not only to erect the said monument, but also to appropriate a small sum for fireworks, in continuation of a custom, which, for more than half a century, has never been deviated from. This doing away of old landmarks, for the sake of party votes, is an anti-conservatism, little according with the general spirit of the mass of the people. Thb Lawyers and thk Nrw Constitution.? For a length of time previous to the assembling of the late Constitutional Convention, the subject ol judicial reform, and the expediency of breaking down the barriers that surrounded the legal pro proiession, was agitated and debated by tbe people and press of this State. We believe that almost every public journal participated in the discussion, and the result was a general conviction that reform was sadly needed in both. In accordance with this conviction, the agitation of the subject was renewed when the Convention assembled, and after a deal of argument and debate, certain reforms were incorporated in the new constitution, which corrected, in some degree, the abuses so long complained of, but did not completely eradicate them. The monopoly of the legal profession was, however, pretty elfcsiiially broken down, and a Held opened for tho admission of every male citizen, of good moral character, possessing the requisite qualifications of learning and ability. The section is in the following words":? " Any male citizen of the age of twenty-one years, of good moral character, and who possesses the requisite qualifications of learning and ability, shall be entitled to admission to ptactice in all the Courts of the State." It is clear that the members of tho Convention, in passing this section, intended that any person possessing the requisite qualifications ol learning and ability, might immediately apply for admis- ' sion, in the same manner as he would apply in case he possessed the qualifications that were required before the New Constitution was formed. Let us see what entitled a person to apply lor ad mission under the old law. The rules on the i subject were framed by the Supreme Court, and are as follows:? No person shtll be admitted to elimination as an r.ttorney, unless ha shall have served a regular clerkship 1 of sevet^-ears in the office of a practising attorney of this court; but if he has regularly pursued classical studies for four years, or any shorter period, after the age of fourteen, it may be allowed in lieu of au equal time of clerkship. The evidence of such classical studies shall be, 1st, a diploma conferring the degree of Bachelor of Arts by some incorporated college, or a certificate of the president of such college. 3d. If neither can be produced, an affidavit of the teacher or teacher* with whom the student has pursued hia studies, stating tha time spent and the studies pursued, with a specification ofthe books used ; or if the teacher be absent from the country, so that hia affidavit cannot be obtained, then the affidavit of the student himself, stating such death or absence, aud also the time spent with his teacher or teacher*, and the books studied by him under each teacher. When the person applying for an order to allow classical itudiea, lias no diploma nor certificate, an affidavit shall also be produced, stating the qualification* of the teacher or teachers. Time spent in classical study, without the aid of a competent teacher, or time spent in those studies which are usually taught in common schools, and compose an ordinary English education, including English grammar, arithmetic, and geography, will not be allowed. - And in every case it mutt be shown by affidavit, that the studies were pursued after the person applying at tained the age of fourteen year*. The time of clerkship will be calculated by the calendar year, and not by terms. It is apparent that the Convention had relorence to these old rules when they passed that section, for their action was taken with the view ol? abolishing all the impediments which these rules contain, and throwing open the profession to all j/ciouno jwoacDacu ui uic fC(jUl3iio ijuailliuauuiis ? oflearning and ability, no matter whether they , submitted to the drudgery of a seven years impri- 1 sonment in a lawyer's office or not. It is characteristic of the legal profession that to ] suit their purpose they will endeavor to prove black to be white, and white to be black, or any t other color ; and nine times out of ten succeed in I cheating the weak-minded that it is so. They , have tried their luck at this section with the same view, and we understand that a majority of them in this State claim that it is as difficult to get admitted into the J the profession now as it ever was, the new con- ' stitution to the contrary notwithstanding. They j chuckle over the manner in which they say the t people have been deceived. Chief Justice Bron- J son of the Supreme Court, m an opinion that he i recently gave on this subject, is ol a similar opinion, and says that he sees no reason for chang- 1 ing the rules adopted by the court in reference to 1 the admission of lawyers. Alter referring to the 1 section in the new constitution, he says:? " This is precisely the same standard of ' age, charac- ' ter, bea- ing and ablity,' which this court has always re- ' quired of applicants for admission as attorneys." Now admitting the standard to be the nnma. is ' ? ? -- 1 that any reason why the court should travel be- < yontl the constitution, and prescribe the manner j in which that standard shall be attained. Is it < not enough for an applicant to possess the requisite qualifications of learning and ability 1 Must he be prescribed in the manner of attaining them. The Supreme Court might, with as good reason, insist that the term of apprenticeship should be ten or fifteen years, as five; and thus virtually debar the admission of any more lawyers, and confirm the very monopoly which the convention ought to break down. We hardly think that Chief Justice Bronson will be sustained in this opinion. It is manifestly opposed to the spirit and meaning of that section of the new constitution which we have spoken of, and if carried out, would be a palpable violation ol it. We hope the question will be tested at an early day. Ship-Building in New York? More New Packets.?It is comparatively only a few days since we noticed the launching of some half dozen splendid packets?the Bavaria, JAdmiral, American, Eagle, and others; and now, oh paying a visit to the ship yards, we find as many more claiming attention. The first on the list is the Sir Robert Peel, built at the yard of Mr. W. H.Webb, for Messrs. Grinned, Minium fc Co.; London line of packets. She is, as far as we can ascertain from a hurri w luopvwiwii, ? Iivwto oiiij/, CUIU mil, iiu UUUUl, like all the New York packets, prove a very fast sailer. She will be launched at two o'c'ock this I day. The next on the list is a new ship, intended for the East India trade, to be called the Sea Witch, owned by Messrs. Howland tt Aspinwall, and is to be commanded by Capt. Waterman. Her figure-head is a sea serpent, and she is to be fitted up in a style superior to any vessel that ever left this port for the Indies. Her model appears per. 1 feet, and when she is completed it is expected she will bo able to compete with the Rainbow and Natchez, the two fastest s&ilers^in the trade; but if she even equals them she will do. She is to be j launched in about ten or twelve days. There is also at one of the yards, a very neat. | substantial little steam packet, intended to run between New Orleans and Galveston, which is I rapidly approaching completion, which, with tho new Atlantic stoemer Washington, and a host of i others, we shall have to take another opportunity to notice, to do them justice. And last, though not least, the new ship Admiral, whose lullnfth we noticed a few weeks ago, is now completed, and is open for visiters this day, previous to her departure for Havre, which takes place to-morrow, i^he is owned by Messrs. Fox and Livingston, and is commanded by Captain James A. Wotton, late of the Burgundy. Our ship yards present quite an active appearance, and show, conclusively that the wnr with Mexi- ' oo does not all'ect our commerce, or our enter, prising ship builders would not have so ranch business on hand. U ThMtrlcnli. Pa?* TiiiTit -Kina Jon*.?Tho more we wltr ass this reproduction, the more It wine upon our regard, and the faeter hold it lay* upon our iutjllect. And now that the ecenic import of it ii more familiar to ui, we can give lome special attention to the different performer*. The part which Mr. Keen hai, U one of extreme difficulty, for thero is a difficulty in the very nature of it, independent of art, and which scarcely any art can wholly overcome. The difficulty is this : we cannot sympathixe with anything in John: he is too mean for indignation: he is too despicablo lor our pity: wo cannot hold communion with him: the actor suffars in the man, and he suffers the more too, the more consummate his acting. Now, it is highest praise to Mr. Keen, as an artist, that be brings out the tall meanness and cruelty of John's nature'' that be so identifies himself all through with the dastard and cruel monarch, that we almost forget the feigned impersonation, and lose ourselves io the historic reality But Shakespeare una always some ioucu 01 lenuerueu in the wont being whom ho ]>ourtrays ; aomo gentlo chord, however slender, to hold U3 to thorn io our common humanity ; and, even in a wretch ao base aa John, he will not allow ua to forget that we are of a kindred nntnre. Thia he ahowa us in the attachment of Faulconbridge, and through the aolemnity of death, which elevatea the lowesfe which hringa down the higheat, which renders all m?n in ita houi equal, and which covera for a little, their vices from our view by the gathering shadows of eternity. The moral interest of thia truth, as sbown in the death of John, ia given by Mr. Keen with tue force of a moat affecting reality. But, the distinction wo have stated, ought, we think, to be apprehended in any ciiticism oi an actor in thia character ; and the distinction bus a general worth besides, which we do not remember to have seen noticed. In characters deeply and pur ly tragic, the actor's difficulty ia at an end wh -n he has mastered the conception, and faithfully embodies it. Thie, to be sure, requires genius, and studious toil added to genius, but his labor ia immediately rewarded by the spontaneous enthusiasm of the audience. And, it signifies not, how terrible the crime, how stern the guilt, how appalling the misery, how malignant tho spirit, if the tragic dement is intense enough in the character, the actor, that presents it truly, awful as the aspects of nature are, which he sets before his audience, agitates them with emotions, and fills them with a sympathy that ilia nl?0ltir,. TKo trfivir. alnmATlt hat not only in these characters the sublimity of a tear ful stiength, but it ha* always, likewise, associations that relieve it. Thus the wickedness of Richard has Mime redemption in the inigr.t of bis courage aud bis will; the treachery ami crime oi Macbeth, in the wilderiiigs of his superstition and the agonies of bia remorse; Ilia despair ot Otbelio in the .icjdh of his afiecuoas; the tailess misery of Lear, has an overpowering mfijusty in the very darkness ot its midnight; and the malignant vindiotiveness ot bhjlock, is mitigated by Uie goading provocations be hus endured, and there ia a gleam of pitiful sadness thrown over him, by the desertion and ingratitude of his daughter But none of these thing* belong to John whose character, as we have said before, is tuut of a baseness which nothing can ennoble. Still, the play, as a whole, is a line one. and the character of Lonstance, which Mrs Kean acts with such simplicity and truth, such passion and such sathos, whien goes to the heart of all that can be moved by nature, is one that throbs with the profoundest tragic fillings, and surroundsd by the most tragic situations. The hardy, burly, reckless, good natured, jovial soltier of fortune in Kaulcontiridge is well conceived by Mr. Vandeuhuff, and the hearty manner in which the uu- , tience receive his impersonation, shows that he gives hem the generous, careless, honest, merry fellow, withiut elevated sentiment or moral refiuement, which the luthor intended, and which they would like if he came lelore them in reality, borne more, however, of the geleral rudeness of the age, and the informal, buoyant hilarity of the character, would add value to the part.? Mr. Dyott merits sincere commendation for the faithfulness with whichjie places before us the wronged and gentle Hubert; and to give appropriate praise to Miss Denny in Prince Arthur, we should have assistance from the j fairies and the giaces. Nor should we, in shaking of a play?which in every pait, aud by every performer, is so well sustained?omit to mention the valuable contribution which Mrs. Abbott, in Queen Elinor, gives to the general excellence. We will venture one general remark in closing, and hat is, the little lavor that bhakspeare shows to Kings.? Phis, too, is the more wonderful, when we consider the nonarchical age iu which he lived; the most sa. periaps, that England ever saw. Elizabeth was not only >f determined, bat of despotic will. She was ipen te Aattery to her person, but she required absolute lubmissionto her office But though Shakspeare does >tfer a passing compliment 10 her person, he nowhere sncircle it with the attribute to which such submission houid be given. He painte her iather pretty much the :yrant brute that bo was ; and in this picture of John, he poet does nothing certainly to mitigate the hatred >1 history. James the First made as high claims as Kluubeth, but he did not sustain them by us high a genius ; and if the indomitable force of the reyal virago lid not change the spirit of Nature's bard, the whining puerility ol an effeminate pedant was not likely to do so. rhe truth is, that Shakspeure was neither aristocrat uor lemocrat, neither monarchist nor republican, lie was he great interpreter of life to mankind. Kingship has lelouni been the highest form of our life ; and such as kingship was in the facts of the world's experience, he saw it, and he drew it. The manner in which this play has been brought out, has added a refinement and a dignity to stage representation, which it has never bad in this country before ; and Mr. Kean, by whose talent and exertion it has been done, has elevated the drama in America, and the theatro in which this play has been produced. Ail should go to see it; not as a mere temporary sight, but lor permanent and deep-iaid impressions, never to be forgotten : the young skeuld go to see it for instruction, and the mature for reflection; those who are learning history lor usistance, and those who have studied history for inspiration. It is an opportunity, which, lost now, oan never recur, and can never be recovered. Boweht Theatbe.?'" Mazeppa" was produced at this theatra, last evening, with admirable effect The magnificent scenery displayed on the occasion, together with the entire performance, gave infinite satisfaction to the vaet audience that crowded every part of the house. Mr. De Bar, as the principal performer?Mazeppa?acquitted himself in a highly creditable manner; Hadaway, as Urolinska, kept the house in continued laughter, as 10 never fails to do, by his personation of the comic [lieces which are usually assigned to him. Mr. Clark, as Count Promislaus also performed with much ability, and Vache's Rudzlok'was well sustained. The Misaes Vallee danced a German waltz after the play. The legen- j lary drama of " Nick of the Wooda" followed, and the ' burlesque opera of " Beauty aud the Beaat" wound up the performances. The bill for thia evening will be found highly attractive ; and during the week " Old Bowery" will fully euatain that high and deserved repu tation which it hae acquired, and which haa gained it a ! deserved popularity amongst its numerous patrons. ; Mr. Jackson, the enterprising manager, has again engaged the services of eome of our leading theatrical : stare," which will be seen on reierence to the bills j of the day. To-night will be a perfect " jam " Suicide #f Herr Alexander.?Much excitement was created yesterday from a report of many who ihad attended the exhibition of the German wizard at the 1 Alhamra on the evening previous, that he had, at the 1 closing of the performances, passed a sword through his body, driven frantic, probably, by the applause he had received in the course of the evening, ft was only another of his wonderful deceptions, however; the sword was pressed against his breast, and the point was seen coming out of his back ; but the Magician remains 1 unharmed, and we advise all who are fona of the amus ing and astonishing to visit the Alhamra this evening, ' and see many feats performed quite as wonderful as the I above His creation of the vase of gold fish is a very | beautiful and extraordinary delusion- ! Bowksy Amphitheatre.?This popular placa of amusement continues to draw, nightly, full andcrowdod houses. Madame Cauiille Gardner, in her groat eques trian feat, last evening, was gloudly and enthusiast! cally applauded. She may j be deemed a sort of rival I of the distinguished Mr. North?who has again been J engaged fer this Circus. Mr hemp, in his performance : of" La Kranra Ilispaniola," elit iteJ bursts of applause Mr. Ke**rp s extraordin >ry feats have so frequently called j forth the laudatory rema.ks of every spectator that it would be almost superfluous to notice them. His barrel feat alona stamps ins reputation as one of the most astonishing periormcrs in his line at present connected with the Circus. To-night, aud on Thanksgiving day, the attractions will draw immeuse crowds, and those who intend to enjoy the amusements should go early and secure a place. Raymond and W*au*o'? MEisAiiaaie.?-The time that this establishment will remain in the city is drawing to a close, and we advise all who wish to see the handiwork of nature as displayed in the animal creation, to visit this establishment. Not the least interesting feature in the exhibition is to witneae the power which Mr Pierce,well denominated the lion-tamer, has over the wildest of the brnte creation. With a motion of his finger, or a glance of his eye, he controls the actions of wild beasts, who by a momentary exertion of their strength, could tear him to atoms. B, Dill* and rir Valanllna dm mtlnrnlx l.a.ll... ,1 : Albany. wlcal Intelligence. Camillo Sivoai.?On Friday evening we are to hare the great musical fea?t of the season. The great violin let Sivori, the pupil, and, aa many think, equal of Paganini, will give us another paradise of sweet aoumla from hie ; magic how. It is hia first since hia return from Boaton, where he achieved a most brilliant triumph, and the last, j we believe, previous to hia departure for the South. He i will perform the beautiful variations on " Nel Cor the 'Trayer of Mosea," on one string ; a "Urand Concerto," and a Duo with Ilapet'i. In addition to his own talent, he has engaged the assistance of the best vocal and instrumental performers in the city. De Begnis, Signora Pico, Mrs. Coder, Julia Northall, Timm, Loder, K? petti, with hia unrivalled orchestra,, are all engaged. Ws would, aa on another occasion, recommend the purchase of tickets at the music stores. In this way the delay consequent upon a crowd at the doors will be avoided. Mapamr Asi.amowici. ?

Stephens, of (he Lower Police, have diicovered that the burglar they arrested a few days ago, together with David Devoe and others, who called himself Bill Jones, alias Reed, alias Smith, alias Johnson, has turned out to be the desperate burglar who kept the citizens of Cincinnati, nearly a year ago, in a perfect state of alarm, breaking open many valuable stores, and carrying off a large amount of property. He was arrested in the above city, his cib discovered, and the rogue under arrest, when all at once he " bolted," and the officers thinking to bring him to a stand, discharged six pistol shots at him, but not one took eifect. He outran his Kursuers, and took to the woods, and, leaving the woods, e spent three days in a wheat field, and by degrees worked his way down the canal to Albauy, where he became acquaiuted with David Devoe, and from thence they came together to this city, having been the authors of many desperate burglaries in this city and Brooklyn, enough to send them all to the State Prison for their natural lives. We are informed , upon good authority, that a reward of $1400 dollars is i offered for the arrest of this Bill Jones, by the authorities ! of Cinoinnati, which will in some way recompense these i vigilant officers for the ability and tact displayed by them 1 in breaking up a gang ol such desperate characters. The Cute of Mr. SicfciiIn this case we noticed in yesterday's papor the arrest of Mr. Daniel Sickles, on a charge of felony, such was not the case; we are in- | formed by Mr. Sickles that on being informed of the in- ' dictment, and a Bench warrant having been issued, he | voluntarily went forward, and gave the requisite hail.

The destruction of the engine house was complete; it was reduced to a mere mass of ruin*. One of the boiler heads flew out, and what we suppose msy be called the recoil, lifted the boiler from it bed, and projected it straight across the rued, fully one hundred yards, into some vacant lota, where it struck, and then bounced some flfty feet further up a hill. In its passage, it struok a young man naaaed James MeClory, ; on the baok of the head and right shoulder, smashing them into pieces. The face alone remained attached to the body by the skin of the neck. Mr. Win. Holland, one of the partners, who was directly in front of the boil- 1 er, had his head taken clean off. It was carried away by the boiler, and all the reaaains found were the scalp, the top of the skull, and one ear. Ha was a married man, and leaves a wife and two children. He was foreman of the establishment. MeClory was a pattern maker, and was running the engine at the time of the explosion He was s single man. A boy named Wm. Wilson, 10 or IT rears of age, was struck by some missile, and also! scalded?his wound* are considered mortal. Another ! boy, named Wm. Linton, was thrown out into the road, and scalded, but not dangerously ?he is 13 or 14 years of age. Two others were somewhat injured.

Oeorgo Weaver, who was examined on Monde*, was recalled and oroaa-examined at great length, but not&ii g material was elicited on his cross examination. Johi CoanxLL, (colored) seaman, examined. Shipped in New York; hails from Westchester county; got to Campeachy in about 42 days after we left here. Witness belonged to the larboard watch ; Daly belonged to the starboard watch. Saw the captain about mid watch; witness was called on deck at this time and saw him; witness went below then, and did not see him afterwards; witness heard no more until "the alarm was given that the captain was overboard, Philip* and witness came up, witness ahead; aaw Daly and Curtis on dark; it was Curtis that gave the alarm: when witness np, the ahip was nearly were round; saw nothing of the captain after; when witness came up the first time, he saw the captain ut the cabin door; he appeared to be as well as Usual Tlie captain was a pretty fair man: often aaw bcttar and worse; cannot say whether he drank or not; ssw him drink wine in Campeachy; he was not what witness would cull a drinking man; he was sometimes eccentric in his behaviour; he used to walk up and down the ship, talking and Uughiug to himself; still, witness thought he knew what he was about; he had a pet turkey on board, with which he used to amuse himself After the captain went over, they put into Beaufort; the town authorities came on board, overhauled the vessel, and took the crew on shore and examined them in relation to the death of the captain; there was a paper handed to witness te sign; saw Levins strike at Daily with an axe; missed him and broke the globe lamp in his hand; the captain ordered Daly to go down to the forecastle to seize him; heard Levins say that he would atrike any one that would go down to seize him; the captain asked witness to go down aud assist in seizing him; witness was afraid, and refused. Elijah PniLi.trj, (colored) examined.?His testimony was to the same effect as that of the former witness. Here the case for the prosecution rested. Iiasc West, examined for the defence.?Keeps a boarding house; Daly boarded with witness since he arrived in the city five weeks ago; never concealed himself ; there was a difference between Daily and Stearnes about an order. The witness contradicted Stearnes, who was examined on Monday for tlio prosecution in relation to the conversation Stearnes, Banks, and Moore, had with witness; Levins never told the witness that the captain was knocked overboard; never heard any of the sadlori say so; never told any one that Levin had told the witness so. Daly theu made a voluntary statement. He said he shipped in this city on the second of June, and in a fewdays after he sailed for Campeachy At-Campeachy, the .captain discharged the mate. Shortly after they cleared from Campeachy on their homeward voyage, aud called at Alloa At the latter place the captain called Daly to (him, end said that he (Daly) was a good seaman: that he, the captain, had great confidence in him, and ne would appoint him mate of the ship, and rate him at twenty dollars a month ; and said iif the owners did not agree to it, he would pay him out of his own pocket. Alter they cleared from Alloa, Daly was the principal officer, and had the full confidence of the Captain?he went on to aay that the Captain came to him, Daly, on deck one morning, very early, and told him that he had found all hands belonging to the larboard warcn asieep, inc uuug me men ai me wneei; ne seemed to be very much distressed, and said he had fluffed Kawcett, and added that he had thought it was best for them to put into the next port. Daly advised him not, as they were near home, and ii such an occurrence again happened, th y should be tied up and flogged. After that they continued their course homeward, and soon after, the Captain caught Russell, Hheridan. and Fawcett again asleep. Upon tuat occasion he stiuek Fawcett with a stick, upon which Fawcett ran down to the forecastle, and on bis way picked up an axe The Captain got his pistols, called all hands on deck, and ordered them to bring him up and put him in irons. Fawcett threatened to kill the fli'jt person that weuld attempt to go down. He, Daly, then got a globe lump and went down part of the way, when fawcett met him, made a blow oi the axe at him, and struck the lamp, breaking it in pieces. The hatchway was then nailed down, and all communication with Fawcett stopped. Next morning he surrendered, and he and Russell were hand-cufled, and ordered Dot to come aft. The next day the Captain had a conversation with Daly, and desired him, Daly, to keep a sharp look out for land, and if he should see it, to call the Captain. Soon after he thought be saw land, and called the Capt. on deck, they then tac&ed ship: Sneridan Russell and Curtis were ! on deck; the steward was in the galley making a fire; he, Daly, was roiling up the rigging and the Capttfln was ' standing at the tatlrail; in two or three minutes Curtis | sung out that a man was overboard; they did not know 1 at the time who it was, and they all ran to see who it was that was miBsing; some ran into the Captain's cabin and some ran to look for Curtis; Curtis was soon found, but the Captain was not, and they then concluded j that it was the Captain went overboard ; he, Daly, then called all hands on dock, and alter a consultation be- ' tween them, Daly took command of the brig and knocked off Kawcett's irons; they then put the ship about, she | having wore round during the alarm, and steered for Beaufort, N. C. being short of provisions; the town authorities came on board, overhauled the ship's papers and took the crew on shore and examined them, after which they were set at liberty; they then went on board again and cleared from Beaufort with a determination to bring the ship to this port, but as they had no chart of the coast and no chronometer on board, they were misled when they first discovered the Delaware Capes; Daly thought they were the Highlands at Bandy Hook, and inconsequence of this error the ship was allowed to get too near the coast and struck [The foregoing is the substance of Daly's statement, and it is but justice to say that he is one of the most intelligent negroes we ever heard.?Reporter ] The public prosecutor next read a written statement of ' the Captsin's, written some days before his death, it cor- j responded w ith Daly's account in almost every particular. The Commissioner, with the consent of the United States District Attorney, dismissed the chaige and liberated Daly and the others, bat bound them over to appear ! as witnesses, in case the District Attorney should tnink > proper to proceed further in the matter. la Chaacery.

The question of abstinence or temperance attracts much public attention in this vicinity. The most distinguished and the most highly respected citizens of this : city are exerting themselves in behalf of the temperance question. We euppose that the whole question whether the sale of liquors shall be tolerated in this State or not, will ho governed by the decision of the Court of Errors upon the question whether the anti-license law passed by the |>epular vote of the State, shall overrule the charters of cities, which provide lor the granting of licenses. It is certain that the friends of temperance are determined to have this law enforced, and that they conceive that the city authorities are entirely subject to the provision! oi nut law 01 tue stale.

The Maine, Fitchburg?

The Charlestown Branch road, sometimes called the ice road, which has lately been united to the Fitehburg road, has freighted this year, in eleven months, over seventy thousand tons of ice, and twelve millions Of bricks. The expenses have been very considerably re. duced since the union, which places both lines under one head and management, and it is estimated that this little road, about five miles in length, between Charlestown and Fresh Pond, will yield ten per cent, net revenue, being equal to the main line. The Fltch_ burg Company made a good thing by the an novation, and the Charlestown Branch corporators, by the sale ofthelr road and lands, have realized ever par for their stock, which at one time sold at a considerable discount The Worcester and Western roads at one time contemplated a similar union. The plan failed, un. fo>tunate y for the Worcester road, for in the mean time the prosp?cts of the Western iiave improved to an extent which will render it inexpedient for the company to entertain any proposition piecing the former above the latter noin ro??> are now ar.iing in nurmony wua each other, under Mr. Oilmore's compromise, and both are earning good returns for their respective stockholdara, and the entire line from Boston to Albany will, in a short time undoubtedly,becomo the mort valuable pro< party of the kind in the country.
