Everything went off finely and ourselves with the rtlt, in common, enjoyed the entertainment exoeedlngly.

Judos DniKatR add the Mjjdil Artists ?The Model Artisti, who were arrested on Sunday night for ?n infringement upon the Sabbath, while exhibiting themselves at Finteux's. in Broadway, were taken be fjre Justine Drinker, yesterday mornint. The testimony against them wa? positive, two of them still having nn their costumes They were severally called up before tbe pious Judge, who spoke at length upon the evils of Sabtath breaking, at the same time assuring tbein that if they wer? again brought up they would fare bally. He thought they had behaved very Improperly, and, therefore, held them to ball for their future good behaviour. Cain. Co*.?There are frequently great errors among ( the upper classes of society, In const queuce of false wives | and unfaithful hushauds A few d?yn einoe, a gentle- j lnan residing in the upper part of the city, left home uuexpeotelly to go to a neighboring city, on business of Impor'anoe. wbioh would, lu all probability, protract his Rtvsnoe to ten days. Arriving at his place of destination, lie discovered the business had been properly adjusted, hi;.', immediately sturted homoward. lie was only absent ooe <jay and a half, and going to his residence, found the childreu at brme, bu'. the wife out fie took a walk is his place of business, during which he discovered the paitusr of his bos 'm. in a hack with a young man who had formerly been a clerk in his employ. His rusnicions becoming exulted, he tnllowe'l with hII possible lipeed; but soon lost eight of tbe vehicle He then went houi-, determined to say nothing until another opportunity should off-r, when he might again have obance of eyeing them together. The next day offered that opportunity He discovered them in Broadway, walktug ar Invert, always walk, seeing none other than themselves They were followed by th* injured husband, who wis uuwilling to believe her false, though he had every rea*on to ninr mr\ until I --,-1 ?---? through which they passed to Steroer street.

The wife sung out, ,l An ! old tellow, I've caught you " The poor fellow was so taken hy surprise, that he cried out. " Don't inske a tool of yoursetf in the street! you've knooked in* c ut of an hundred dollars " He tried to make her believe h? was In search of stolen property, for the recoTery of which be would motive that amount: but it was Bo gi; sbe took bin by the arm and led him home.

I A Robbtry and Mytery ? Much liu been Mid about the ifflcltooy and lntfflclency of the pref?nt police system ot the city. One ot the morning prints, ot do circulation, tukes groat umbrage at the article* which appear in our paper, and ihreatena to "make Home howl" if there It any more of It. Now we would asaert tbat the preaent police system la the greatest humbug with wblch our city ia burdened. The totally unnecessary office of Chief of Polloe, la an expense, aud for no apparent purpoae, which the people ahould be rid of. In that office la kept a private book of robberlea and burglaries, the commission of which are only known to those immediately connected with that office, as ia alio a private reoord kept In every station houae, that the villany and crime which ia daily practlaed, may not be made nublio.but theolty present an appearance of order and quiet Not four weeks aince, a jeweller's shop, in one of our atreuts, was broken open, robbed and aet on ; Ore, aud the fact wm unkuowu to the police, and if known, was kept from the public eye, that It might not bring discredit upon the valuable and efficient police, j Could all the robberies aud burglaries which are perpei traced la the city become public, the efficiency of the present police system would be tested. To say nothing of the expense or the unless atta.hrj. who are fatted for nought, there uny many brunches wbich could be materially changed to the beuetlt ot the city. The ayntem ia defective, and ail tho ?tfortH to sustain it will not avail? the people will be gulled no longer Home Hubbtd ? Stool Polici.? i n? management or our olty police U verging, step by tep, into the old corrupt system, iuoh m was carried on Rome twelve or tifteen years ago, by certain few, then police officers. who have made fortunes out of the stool pigeon and oompromise system, only not on so extensive a scale at present; but If allowed to go on with impuni ty, It will, without doubt, for supersede the old polloe in corruption; although we must oonfess that there are many good and trusty men attaohed to the department, and we should be sorry indeed If such were not the oase. Then, again, there are many who go In for all they can make, irrespective of their duty aa officer?, and honesty as moral oltizens For instance ?It was but a short time sinoe that a man waa arrested for breaking open several trunks, and stealing therefrom property valued at many hundred dollars The dwelling of the aooused waa searched, and the m^Jor part of the property recovered therein, and identified. This property, together with the prisoner, were all conveyed to oue of the polioe stations, and there the kccused was detained in custody over two days. The next thing, a pliant lawyer was prooured to operate; and ax the relatives aud frieni's of the prisoner were wealthy, and the accused himself belonging to one or two public institution, and a member of a ohurch besides, consequently thin oase came olearly under the new pyntem of compromise, apparently adopted by the present police. Under these oircumstancea, the prisoner was allowed to run, br Interested parties, they knowiug full well that a clear case of grand larceny was made out; aud in order to humbug the magistrate, a letter was written by the complalnant, and conveyed with the prisoner before the J ustioe, without a particle of the stolen property, all of which was kept back at the station house. In this letter, dlreeted to the magistrate, waa set forth that the oomplalnant felt satisfied the prisoner waa innooent; although but two days before he had sworn positively to a search warrant setting forth thai the property waa stolen and carried awayfrom his premises and the prisener being strongly suspeoted.the wsrrant was directed to his residence, where nearly all the stolen property waa found wun tne marks of the <> wucr on a t:umber of the articles, rnaktog the case as cl.<ar as noonday. All these Tacts, it appears, were kept from the magistrate, and such statements made as authorised the discharge of the prisoner, and thu* tha whole matter was quietly hushed up The motives of such police transactions are apparent and perfectly undrrnjood But what system of pslioe can be sustained (let the system be ever so good) while matters of so gross a nature are permitted to exist ? Mea who dabble in suoh outrages of public justice are well aware that it is the duty of the officer making the arrest to bring the accused party, together with tba property stolen, at onoe before the magistrate situated in the district to which they belong This, however, is rarely done, although it 1? their duty thus to do so, until thu poor devil in pumped and skinned of ail his l'unds by the police lawyer, who allows this department a fair per centage for suoh recommendation. All this Is wrong ?very wrong ; and we are sorry to say the evils are creeping In daily, and will, until some method Is adopted by which the members attached to the department will be made to work together, Instead of endeavoring to cut e.ich others throats for a few dollars and cents. We Intend to say more on this subject in a few days. Meantime, the communications onpdioe, received from various sources, shall be duly attended to. CAargt of Jlrttn.?

In tha Suprt mfl Conrt Mr. Webster detained a crowded audienoe for three hours in a great argument upon the emigration or passenger act of New York. In his exordium he complimented Mr. J Van iiuren upon tha talented and legal knowledge displayed in his argument yesterday?but soon after took ocoasion to allude with expression of disapprobation to the extraordinary remark addressed by Mr. Van Duren yesterday to tha high and bonoiat.le court?who had the extreme bad ta-te to congratulate the court upon its yielding "to th? popular impulses of the day" "This," said Mr. Webster, " may be a compliment; but it Is a compliment whioh I would not address to this court, nor to any court for which I entertained a feeling of respect " In fact, he set John Van liuren up nnd tben knocked hlin down. Mr. Webster looked well. He was full dress?d. No nmu knows bet er than he to pay proper respect to the assembly he appears before. He compared advantageouxly in this respect with the appearance of his young oppooeut, who, b-'tn yesterday and to <l?y, prewuuted himself in an undress frock-coat. If the Judges take the trouble to put on their gowns, 1 see not why thosa who appear in their presence should not exhibit a corresponding care in their dress.

Hall said be brought tbe money there when he came In; that there waa no oua there but themselves, and it was very string* Lanphler then came up and said, "Mr. llall, that la a bold assertion; who do you suspeot having taken your money?" Hall replied lie did not know ; but still insisted that he had it when he cam* futo the store. LlDphler said. " wo do'nt like to have anything of this kind attaching to ua I muat l>e r?<rched, and I suppose every one else will have the same thing done 11 Thompson said he would be searched ; Mrs Snyder said abe would be searched. Hall then aald ha would go to another place, where he had been In th* morning, although he was confident he braught the money Into th?. store ; be then went out. and shortly after returned wlih a policeman. After they came In he told the policeman that he had lost bis money, and to do bis duty. Mrs Snyder at?pped up, and aaid she was willing to be searohed by either o; tbelr wives It waa finally agreed that she should go with Mr Hacey to bla house in Oak-street, and that sh? wnnlil aurf?r Mm Ilaoey to search her. She accordingly went with Hacey, followed by the polioeman, and ??i searched by Mrs llacey, but nothing found. While they were away Thompson, the book-keeper, observed something stloking out ?f the pockets of one of the coats ou the counter He took it from wher? it wan, and it turned out to bo Captain Hall's purse and money. Mr. Hall mine lb at the moment the money was given to him. He was requested to go on to Oak-street and apologise to Mrs. Snyder, which he did. This was the subject of the plaintiff's esse as detailed by Thompson the detendint's book keeper. The dtf-nce was, that it was an inevitable mistake; that no force or violence was used; that Mrs Snyder submitted of her own accord to be searched, and that when the inistaae was discovered an ample npolngy was made; that she went aw*y seemingly satisfied; that at all events Johnson, Lanphiere aud Hacey had no concern or interest In it except that it happened at their store.

The next morning Mr McCarty, the partner of Towell, went to Mr Naylor's store, tola his olerk that he was one of the owners of the brandy, and wished to have it The olerk, supposing that all wan right, let him have It Mr N?ylor shortly nfter came In. and believing that It was surreptitiously taken, went immediately t? the store of Mr Hasklns, where the brandy was, aud took It back to l)is own store Subsequently Hasklns commenced a suit against Powell &.

At the seoond board, Harlem fell off % per cent: Reading Jai with limited aales. There baa been considerable inquiry for sterling bills to day, and we quote prime bills on London, at 10 a 10>i per oent premium. The New Hope and Delaware Bridge Company Bank, of Lambert ville, N. fj., baa failed. Bill hcldera should not sacrlfloe .them, but keep them until something Is known about the oonoern. The brokers who have been instrumental in putting them In circulation, will shave the bill helders as much m possible. A large amount of theae bills must be In the hands of poor laborer*, who oinnot afford to hold; who must sell tLem at onoe,for the most they can get. Look out for New Jeraey bank bills after this.
