fc i Him lui?wwmn T H Whoh Mo. MOV Afftlri In Yncatnn. [From the Wnablngton Union, Fob. 14 J We are Indebted to tba Navy Department for the following lnt*rretleg despatch's, which here just been received foom Commodore Perry. They present <11*treating picture of the present condition of Ynenten : ? CiMricHi. March 13.1848 8m : I have the honor to Inform the department of my arrival at tble plane, laat from Laguna. having wi'h m* tba ateamera " Mississippi." " Soorplon," '' Irle," and ' Wcter Wltoh." and lbs Demo ong v esurius." meat of these vessels have been withdrawn temporarily from their part'euUr stations in order that I might make at lapoiirt a demonstration it my means would allow, id the probability that the appeuranee of auoh a force on the ooast might, hare some in licence upon the feara of the Ind'ani. with whom the authorities of Yucatan ate end?avorleg to bring about terms of paolflnatlon. In my seweia! interyiewa wi'h Qorernor Mendei. who name from the seat of government expressly to meet me, I have found him to be an intelligent and energetio person. ardently attached to the praaent existing inati'utlnna of the eountrv, bat entertaining. in common with bla ooadjn'or? in the government. serious apprehenaiona that these institutions cannot nooh longer be anstained wltbout prompt assistance from some foreign power; indeed. such have been the suocessra of the Indiana, that the whites have beoome penie striken, and seem to have loat all enurage and nil hope of cheeking their advanoe The acocmpanying papera will exhibit to the departmen* the unhappy condition of the country Doubtless the Yucatan commissioner resident at Washington, Dou Juato Hiema. baa preasnted a similar representation to the United 8tates government, and has made urgent explication for assistance in the present alarming crisis The statements set forth in these papers are nnt in the least exaggerated; and nnleaa aasiatanoa is reoeivod from some quarter, the whole country will be laid waate, and the numerous towns and villagea of tha interior destroyed. Such is the diegrsoeful panio of the Yuoateco soldiers, thet many of them fly upon the very appearance of the enemy, and not a few of the oltiasns consider themselves unsafe even in this walled oity. In this atate of alarm, the authorities are at a lots how to move, and they look in every direetion for auocor Applloation has been made tome for men and monitions; but,-however I might be diepoaed to take upon myself the responsibility of such measures in aid of the defence of these unhappy people agaiost the exterminating eroeltlesofan uncivilised and rutbleaa enemy, the depart-' ment is aware that I have not the means of extending firoteetion beyond the range of the gnns of the one or wo small vessels* that ean alone be spared from the present force of the squadron; and, besides, I have good reason to believe that Henor Siema has already commu nloated with tbe government at Washington, ana 1 may loon exp'ot In'traotioas upon the subject The authorities are very desirous of obtaining muskets, with a supply of ball cart ridges; bat the ships have only a few more muskets than are required for their own nae, and these are wlthont cartridge boxes I should be glad to loan the few we have to spare. If they can be maue available; and I have promised to present a request of Governor Mendea to the military governor of Vera Crua. for a loan of some of the arms taksn fiom the Mexloans at the capitulation of that city. This supply has, however, been rendered less urgent by the arrival at Si*sl (intelligence of whleb has been this moment received) of three small Spanish vessels of war. with 2 000 stand of arms, four pieces of artillery, 300 quintals of pdwder, with some other munitions, sent, it is differently alleged, by order of the Captain General of Cube, by the oivil authorities of that island, or by private account; bat, upon this point, I shall soon be correctly informed, as I shall dispatch a vessel of the squadron to-day to 8isal, to obtain information as to the bjeot of the visit et tho Spanish vess Is, and the souroe from whence the supply of arms has been furnished. General O'Donnel, as I learn, has been cautious in bis instructions to the commanders c.f tho Spanish vsssels, admonishing them not to prooeed with an armed force beyond a distance of ten yards from the shore. 1 have It direct from the Frenoh consul here, that tho government of Yuoatan has more than twice within s few years back applied to France for permission to hoist the French flag, and to become a French colony; but their proffers have as often been declined. The Frenoh consul expresses the opinion that England , may, In view of obtaining an Increase of territory in the Bay of Honduras, and possession of the harbors of Aaoension and Esptritu Santo, on theeast coast of Yuoatan, be induced to furnish aid. In troops and munitions, from tha settlement of Belise; and a person is now in tbe oity, professing to be an agent sent expressly from Jamaica, to enter Into some arrangement with the Yucatan government Thle information Is given for what it Is worth; in my own mind it has little weight Governor Mendez ha* declared to mo. that, failing to obtain aid from the United States, be should apply to other powers ; and, as a last resort, the people of Yucatan would off?r no tbe sovereignty of the State to whatever power would consent to take it under protection. I sail this day on my return to Vera Crus, via Laguna and the Tabasco. Tbe bomb brig Vesuvius. Lieutenant Commandant M. Mason, will be left at anchor off this oity. to lcok after Amerioan interests, and to render whatever aid ebe oan in the protection of the lives and property of the eitlsena. I propose to employ another small vessel of the squadron on the same duty, and hope to he able to add a third. With great respect,1 have the honor to be. your obedient servant, M C. PERRY, Commanding Home 8quadron. Hon. J. Y. Mason, Secretary of the Navy. [Translation ] OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE GOVERNMENT To Commodore M. C. Perry, Commander-in chief rf the Naval Force* rf the U Slateiin the Qui/of Meaico: The Undersigned, Secretary General of the government of Yuostan, has the honor to communicate what follows to your ezoellenoy, with the view of informing you of the present condition of the atrooious war waged by the aborigines of this oountry against the other races. Notwithstanding the means used to suppress this formidable conspiracy, it h?s been difficult in the extreme, owing to the mode of warfare praotisod by the Indians, and in oona<qaence of our dependence solely upon the b'lpleee and exhaust*d reeouroea of thia oountry, wbioh, impoverished es it is from tho many mlafortunaa and calamities it bae suffered for aomo year a past, oan neither offer nor put in toroe the means which circumstance* demaud; and thus it is not to be wondered at, that, in a rtftssinali S.f an ram a n?tnra tuh thil nrMfliit. it ifl difflftult to fore*** the results which may happen. Posse; slog only one battalion of infantry, and two companies or artillery regulars, whoee ranks have suffered nuiaorou* losse*, and hare been reduced to almost imigniflo.iice, it Las been found necessary to c?ll into service all the bodies of militia, to meet the pressing exigencies of our situation. You will perceive, therefore, sir, that military operntions undertakon with ?>'ch resouroes. oanDotb* efficient. You know these people well, and oannot be ignorant that it is impossible to form armies at once ; that if the enthusiasm of armed citizens can accomplish much ? if, in moments of phrenzy, their valor is indomitable, this enthusiasm, this ebullition la ephemeral only. Soldiery of thla description oannot aneerer far so protracted and laborious a straggle?this war of ambusoadas and rnrprizss which the barbarians wage. This class of soldiery?whiob does not possess arms, of whom the pursuit of war forma neither the hopes nor the career?hss other objeots and other pursuits, which must have a tendency to influence strongly their spirit, so that from day to day their energy decreases, their zeal flags and they and by precipitately abandoning the ranks In whloh they cannot remain. Yon, who are not ignorant of the local circumstances of this country, who have a knowledge of its population and its customs, do not need now a long narrative to enable you ta iorm a correct estimate of thia wart the vaatly tuperior numberaof the enemy, (he absence on tbeir part of everything like indolence and slothfulnesa form ite principal oharacterletloe. Hunger, nakedneas, and inolemericy of weather do not deter them; their life of hunters and savages has undergone bnt little change from tbeir rclatious with society; and the woods, the thiokets,and mountalrs offer no impediments to their incursions and movements, whiob they execute always with wonderlul velooity. Their numbers, and tho qualities above mentioned, more than eompeneate for the inferior nature of their arms, and place them in a eituation to ridicule the movements of our troops, however aotlve and better conceived ihey may be. From these oanses, end from the destructive spirit which prompts them, on the occupation of a paUoe, Immediately tot burn and destroy, a wonderful terror has urlaeu and spread oy-r all or the greater part of our population wfcs bitve been abandoned by their neighbors. hence these apparent triumphs of the Indiana, the vacillation of our troops, and tho turmoil In which the whole country is fouua.

It cannot lie hi I from your penetration, nor can you fail to see with the eyes cf philanthropy, the Imminent danger wbloh menaces a country worthy of a better fate. You. se well as everv enlighened man, well know that the question Is not now of the particular interest* of one people, nor of the private affaire of a small portion of the world ; but of a most Important general object?to wit : civilisation, whose empire is attacked and in risk of falling in Yncatan On this account, sir, ths government cf Yucatan, which orders the undersigned to address yon this despatch, bopas that this solicitude will not be underrated; and that y< u, appreciating It with ths kindns?s and benevolence whioh mark your character, will promptly favor it, not only to ths utmost extent of ) our puwer, but that rou will communicate It to the government of the lotted Htater, and will recommend and prooure all the further assistance which may bs necessary to the complete pacification of this country Thus it arse that, on ths 81st Deoember last.

TWO DAYS LATBX FROM VERA CEUA. \From the New Orleans Picayune. April 7 J The U. 8. eteamahlp Virginia, Capt. Tucker, arrived yesterday from Vera Crna, via Tamptco. She left the former port on the 37th and the latter the 81st nit.? She is only two days later from Vira Cms than the New Orleans. There had been no later arrival from the interior. The impression if strengthened in Vera Cms that the armv was about 41 make a retroaade movement. Co Wi'?T/u, of the first Iafuntrv, took command of the Department of Vera Cms on the 30th Major Lamotte v f the aaiuj regiment acts temporarily as adjutant W?

Upon beirg brought before the magistrates, be said be was on his way to Queretaro, and took that routs to avoid capture, as a price had been set upon his head by Gob. Scott Here the story ends, and are presume the worthy padre if it were ho,'pursued his journey unmolested. FROM CAMPKAGHY. By the arrival yestercay of the schooner Ventura, Capt. Dorantes, from Campeaoby. 37th March, we learn that Commodore Terry had paid a visit to Campeaoby, and was to have prooeeded to Paiangue, but after having an interview with Gen. Bruno, he left Campeaoby on the 34th ult., for Vera Cms. AU the Yuostan troops were at Merida, and the city was well fortified Plenty of provisions and munitions of war.)

The U 8. steamer of war 8oorpion arrived in port yesterday evening from Leguna, in thirty hours, and reports thst the war steamer Wuter Witch was to leave for this port.

Vera C'vz American, March 30. Baltimore, April 14 Resumption of the. Mineral Bank?Desertion of a IVife?The Greek Slave, fye. The Mineral Bank of Maryland is now in full operation again, and announces that it has cut loose from Wall street, entirely?consequently that it is a good honest bank beyond all peradventure. I noticed some time since the shameful and cowardly desertion, by a young physician in the western section of the city, of a young and amiable wife, to whom he had been married clandestinely, iq, consequence of her being of a poor but respectable family, and not acceptable to his relatives. On the fact of his marriage becoming known, his Right Reverend aristocratical uncle, who stands at the head of one of the principal Christian denominations in Baltimore, threatened to cut htm off with a shilling if he did not instantly desert her, and threats were even thrown out to the unfortunate wife, that a divorce would be applied for on the cnarge 01 lnnaemy, it sne aia not consent to a separation and divorce by mutual agreement.? This threat having no effect, money was offered her to apply for a divorce, which she also indignantly rejected; and she is now living with her parents, the mother of a lovely child, but with her spirits crushed under the persecution Bhe has undergone. The cowardly and unminly conduct of her husbatid, and the unchristian course of his family, have caused them to be regarded with universal detestation. Indeed, it is the opinion of most persons, that the wife should be happy thus early in ridding herself of a husband who would thus desert the one he had sworn to "love, honor, and protect," at the.bidding of a guilty avarice and most unholy ambition. She commands the universal respect and sympathy of a large circle of acquaintances, and has always been esteemed as a pious and virtuous girl. The husband still, I learn, protests his love and devotion to her, but by his conduct shows that the filthy lucre of an ambitious relative his more attraction to him than his honor or his love. The Greek slave is to be exhibited, for the first time in Baltimore, to-day. It remains to be seen whether our ladies will turn their backs on its nudity. Albany, April 18,1848. Jffairt t? JIUtny. Hardly a quorum of member* remain in town; the splendid ttiamtr Empire, Copt. Tapper, left the wharf last evening, with a crowd of eastern members, and the trains going west wore also filled with members, all anxious to return to their homes. The session has been an important one, and the members .generally were, perhaps, very superior to some of .their predeoeesr*. The most important acts passed at this session, aro as follows: ? .. The aot to' simplify and abridge the praetice, pleadings and proceedings of the courts of this State. The aot for the more effectual protection of the property of man h d Women, a certified oopy of which I herewith transmit. This is a fmoet remarkable law, though probably a just one. It gives a wife exclusive contrelovei her reel and personal property. The acts appropriating $910,000 for the enlargement of the Erie canal; $913 000 for the completion of the Ceoesee Valley oanr l ; $130,000 for the completion of th* Black River oanal and Erie oanal feeder ; and $20,000 for the extension of tho Chemung oanal. The acts to punish abduotion and seduetlon as crimes. Ths bill for the protection of emigrants arriving In the State of New York. [I have transmitted a copy ef this important act to you, exclusively 1 The acts to provide for the incorporation oi railroad companies. Under tble law It is not necessary to grant special charters to railroad companies, but the legislature, upon the petition of the corporation to cop struct a railroad, has simply to pass an act declaring (hat the i oomempiateu lomi wiu m 01 uiuoibui pumio nuuij 10 *irrut the taking of the private estates,. bo. upon which the road is to bo constructed. The act for the incorporation of companies for manufacturing, mining, meohanlcal, and chemloal purposes The sot for the incorporation of gas light and bridge companies, charitable and religious sooietlsa, and missionary and scientific associations, are all highly Important. Acts were also passed for the incorporation of several ocean steam navigation companies; for the election of canty treasurers; appropriating $60,000 to the New York Marine Hospital, and for the incorporation of the New York Dramatic Fund Aaaoeiation. Atneng the billa whloh were lost was the general bill for the formation of haaks, (this bill dtserved its fat* ) and the general insurance Mil. One other important bill, wbioh was passed, and whloh I have omitted to notice, was the hill to regulate the issues of safety fund banks, which allows these banks that have a eapitei of $1100,000 end over, to issue billa ts the amount of their oireulation, on giving security for the redemption ot their notes. There is, et present, little proepeot of an extra session. Probably none will be had, unless it shall be neoessary to repeal the new code of procedure before the next legislature assembles.

Mr Marehall?Tremendous Uproar, fyc. A meeting professedly called to express sympathy with the French ia their revolutionary movements, was commenced yesterday morning at the Tremont Temple, and closed last evening in a regular row. A notice of the meeting was published in the several pipers of the city, for some ihree or four days before the time; but the unofficial and unorganized character of the call, tendered it pretty HvitliMif wlmt tliM inppfinor wnnlJ Kt> Tf wna op. nerally understood that it was to be conducted by a set of rattlebrains of the various ultra orders in this city. Hence, but little notice was taken of the calls "only some three or four hundred being present during the day session. In the morning, a committee of twelve was chosen to draft resolutions and an address. Mr. B. F. Hallet, a prominent democrat, was chosen as one of the committee, but he declined having anything to do with it; certain remarks he had heard from some of the gentlemen in the preliminary . arrangements, convinced him pretty clearlv what tne meeting was to be; and he got up and moved that the meeting be adjournedto some future day, to meet in Faneuil Hall, where a demonstration might be made worthy of the occasion He said there were not men enough there to defend a barricade. The mention of barricade started the ire of some of the peace folks, one of whom made a characteristic speech in reply. Mr. Hallet again rose, and made a most thrilling speech. He went for physical resistance to tyrants: without it, where would have been the French revolution! Would moral suasion have sent Louis Philippe out of Paris in a one horse cab! No, never. The people of Boston, the descendants of Bunker hill, were not non-resistants. From the day of the atonement to the preaent time, blood had been necessary in all great reformations, and until a better day dawned on earth, it would continue to be necessary. But, as the proceedings of the morning and afternoon sessions were of little consequence, I I will not trouble you with any further account of them. The grand finale came off in the evening. The meeting had got noised about, and a crowded house wsb congregated in the evening. A Polish gentleiqan, who was obliged to dee his country on account of hiB political sins, was introduced to the meeting and made a very good speech After he had closed, the elements of discord began to manifest themselves. Resolutions without number were offered-and discussed. Mrs. Abby Folsom took the stand immediately in front of the president, Mr. Mayor Quincy, and commenced one of her usually forcible harangues; her remarks were rich, and to the point. Alter she had got through with speech No. 1, which was Interspersed at the close of every sentence, with "put her through," " give it to 'em Abby," " take off your bonnet, ducky dear," " go on, go on," &c by the audience, (he Rev. Mr. Marshall got up to offer a resolution; he is a Millerite, and is always on hand for important occasions. He was once a professor in the Andover seminary, and his commanding person! and noble forehead led the audience to suppose that he would say something that would bring order out of chaos. But, alas tor their hopes, he did no such thing. He offered a resolve, which he wished to be added to the already countless number, which read nearly as follows : " Resolved, That the recent glorious revolution in France, which is now extending itself all over Europe, is a sign from heaven that the happy coming of our Savior Jesus Christ will be in, or about, the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and fortyeight." Such a hissing, Ishouting and hooting as now occurred, could only be pourtrayed with any degree of accuracy by one of your graphic reporters. The question on the reception of this resoive was pui Dy me mayor, wnose strict aaherence to parliamentary rules was somewhat ludicrous in such a bedlamite place as this, and decided in the negative, the " aye" ol the Rev. gentlemen being heard, " solitary and atone." Hereupon^ dozen gentlemen or more essayed to speak, but it was no go. The audience had got warmed up, and were bent on agood time. Tney would hear nobody but Abby Folsom, and so Abby got up again, and the way she put it to 'em waa a caution. She told them they were all a pack of hypocrites, and devila, &c , andjwound up by requesting the audience to hear her friend Mellen with the same respect they would listen to the great god-like Daniel Webster. The Mayor, who was so convulsed with laughter that he could hardly speak, repeated the request for a hearing ot Mr. Mellen, and begged the audience to remember that they were Bostonians, and that their proceedings would be reported elsewhere. But no; the audience said Mellen j shouldn't speak, and he swore he wou'd speak, if he stayed there till doomsday. And so, indeed, he did; but it took him a long half hour to utter a few broken sentences, when, shaking his fist in the face of the audience, in token of his triumph, be left the stand. Then Mrs. Folsom appeared again, when a call was made for " Marshall Luky" to take her away. But, by some means, she was induced to cease speaking. The Mayor now put the question upon the adoption ot th#? rparilntlAnfl* lint f ho nvoa tin/i n no a wnpu cm vociferous that it wus impossible to decide the question, and, upon a hand vote being taken, ?tiie " doubts" on both sides were so determined, that the Mayor was in a quandary what to do, or how to decide; but I believe he decided the original resolutions to be adopted, together with the address. These resolutions and the address, will be found, upon publication, to have a sprinkling of all sorts of theories?slavery, Fourieristn, peace, anti-capital punishment, &c. lie. Altogether, the meeting was disgraceful to Boston, and it is to be regretted that the Mayor lent his sanction to it; and, in justice to him, it should be slated thai he evidently hud but little idea ot what the meeting would be, when lie consented to preside. A Mother Poisonkd by hbr Daughter ?Coroner Pratt commenced holding an inquest yesterday, on tLe body of Mrs. Mary Kane, an Irish woman, between forty and flity years of age, who came to her death on Saturday afternoon, under clrcnmatanoee which ltd to the belief that she bad been poisoned. During the investigation, it was shown that a daughter of the deceased, fourteen years of age, waa seat on Friday to an apotheeary to prooare some medioine for her mother. Instead of getting the medicine, however, she stated that her mother wished for some ratsbane. After some inquiry as to the purpose for which she wished it, ehe replied that the house waa infested with rets, and she wished to destroy them. The poison wee delivered to her, end upon reaching her homo at the corner of Curve street and Harrison avenue, she mixed it with water, and administered it to her mother The deceased, who was quite unwell at the time stated, onnttnuedto grow worse, and on Saturday the unnatural ohild procured another portion of amnio and administered that also to hor mother. These faota Indoord the Coroner to issue e warrant for the arrest of the girl, and she was enbsequantly committed to jail to await an exa in I net ion. The contents of tho stomach of the deceased have been analyzed, and fonnd to oontain considerable quantities of arsenic. The girl confesses the fact of Having given to* ratal dri? to her mother, and ??j? in* apposed It would make her worse, but did not think it would kill her, and states as her reason for so doing that her mother punished her on Thursday. It appeared, In the oourae of the Investigation, that the ill conduct of the girl had caused her mo'her much trouble, so that at times she had been obliged to correct her quite severely. The girl was remanded to jail.?Bmton Journal, Jipiil 10 A Family Burnkd to Dkath.?We learn from West Btoomheld that a fire broke out in a frame building at Monnt Prospect, five and a half miles from this city, about 11 o'olook last night, after the family had retired, whtoh consumed the building, with the family of the tenant, a Mr. Btur, who aleoe esesped.

PuRiKR ooinoided in the opinion of Alderman May card, and thought the ordinanoe ? tould be so amended. All the accidents that oooutred Irom stages in Broadway, were above Chambers street. AI j. T>pd thought It was well so let well enough alone Ho toil- - fo-ue of the stage proprietors were satisfied with the pic. ent arrangement,and the ordinanoe should be let sione. Aid Kelly thought the law of tbe State oompelled vehicles to keep to tbe right, and this Board had no right to uot in the matter; and, he hoped, if the ordinanoe was amended, it would be so that stage* keen to the right la Broadway, below Grand street. Aid Smith thought the ordlnanee should not bi touched. He knew tbe great danger of euoh a privilege to the stages, and had long since eeaeed to use a private vehicle in the transnotion of hie business, in eonsequwwoe of the danger attendant upon it. The stags proprietors were eatirfitd, and be hoped tbe resolution wontd be laid on the table until an expression of public opinion be bad on tbe subjeot. The amendment by Aid. Kelly, was then taken end lost. A motion to lay on tho table was oarried. A resolution waa offered by Aid.

Thk Court declined to give an opirlon in tbe present stags of the oaae, but wonld leave it with the gentlemen themselves to ileal with 1: as thi-y dsewed pro par. A fter some conversational remarks from Messrs. Lord, Wood, Anthon and Staples, Mr. Anthon opened tbe case for the defenoe. It became his duty, at this stags of the oaae, to oall the atten lion of the jury to the fa t that the article cf cochineal, referred to in the case, was an nrtlole of a peculiar char Idlsr rnnhinanl (Pas Ann nf ilia mnat vnlushla lien rm aud an article which, it ? u well known, that exposure to the atmosphere tended to materially injure or destroy. In tho ordinary operations of ooinmeroe, this article was packed up in n sort of strong linon bag?that was covered with a buffalo hide, so us to exclude the air; and the parcel was then tightly wrapped up with strong straps. A small tiu box, containing a sample of the article, wus always attached to eaoh parcel or bale. This was deemed necessary, in older to prevent the oxposure of the artiole to the atmosphere. Under tnese otrcumetauoea, no article could he seleoted, betier calculated to oomrnit fraud. The party referred to in the oaec-Ds Goer?was a man of considerable ingenuity, but not honest. He was a Mexican by birth; and, it appears, aware of the facility wbloli this artiole affords for the perpetra tlon of fraud, prepared, perhaps at Vera Crux or elsewhere in Mexioo, the artiole that fiymed the subject matter upon wbloh the present oase oame before them. De Goer, attar arriving at New Orleans, enters into an arrangement with some fictitious merchant, for, on enquiry after the name of the party, no such merchant, it appeared. was in existence. A letter arrived in New York, from this personage, signed S. S Barnard, addressed to the Messrs. Collins 8i Co., dated September 23J, 1846, stating that the firm would receive a certain cargo or quantity of sarraparilla, consigned for sale in New York, which belonged to this Mr. De Goer, who wonld shortly arrive in New York.

On the voyage, it should be obaerved, that this De Ooer told the captain it was cochineal He came la the ship Arkansas, in which the artioie was transmitted. He plaoed, also, after his arrival in New York, a bag of money in the bands of Collins fc Co.?rather agood introduction at all times to a meroh'ant?and then offered for sale the cochineal The prions were deemed too high. Then Dell <er said he would ship them for London. These goods were in the vessel of tho plaintiff Jaques, who had every | opportunity to examine them, as they remained there for fourteen or fifteen dsys ; and thero no excuse i can be offered by Mr. Jaques, if he did not examine them. Mr. A went on at length to detail the particulars of 1 the case for the d<-fenoe, stating they would i be able to show bow the defendants had been i innocently duped inle the transaction, it not being their business, as commission mea:hants, to examine any goods or articles deposited with them, and that such a course was not known In their branch of business, and if recognised, no commission mercbaut would bsafe from the impositions and frauds which such a course would subject them to It appeared that a correspondence between Jtques and De Uoer had taVen place, which correspondence wri not produced After detailing at length the facts whioh they intended to produce, on the part of the defence, which would show that the only parties in the case, who stood stove suspicion, were his clients, Mr W.
