Uu*f*H is now threatened. Wetnaf just remark (ha we consider it highly improbable that the 1 Court will admit this evidence. It appears to us to l?e illegal ; still the d?>curfl?nts may, and. we think, ehculd, be read and commented upon in the statements oi counsel. They will be tendered, moreover, as evidence, and, tnou^h objected to, and successfully. by the crown, the effect will be rather heightened than diminished by their technical suppression. These letters, and the doctrine which Lord ,'ohn Ku^scll is said to promulgate, in one o< his works on the constitution, namely, that "it is sufficient to justify the movers of an imuirection that people are weary with suffering, and view with complacency u ch.inge of rule," will surely prove, even to a Tippemry jury, that my Lord hussell is, alter all, an aider and an abettor oft'eston aud sedition, by " oj>en and advised " speaking.

We have received our Glasgow and Edinburgh coireondence, .dated laft night, by which we leam that Her Majesty and Prince Albeit with the royal suite, are to leave B.ilmora! on the 23ri for Huddo House, the seat oi th<* Ivirl oi Aberdeen, end tmbaik at Aberdeen on the 25th or 2<>th inst There i? to be a great gathering of the Highland clans at Invecauld this day.

Hie reception, in that cilv, was anything but gratifying. Ku^lniid. Our London coring* ndence, received tliis mo:ning by special express, contains some information regarding the Irish Slate trials, which is rather interettirg. The English law officers of ill'* crown are, it is said, amending the monster indictment against Mr. SSihith (Vlirien. and that the I nth Attorney General will be aided by a person of legal experience in the preparation of the necessary legal iorms. I will take all. too, especially if that ceebrated I i.wyer, Mr. Joseph Napier, is engaged iorthede nee: his consummate skill in detecting llaws in a i indictment, are so notorious, that the government must look well to it, lest, on that ground, a veidict of acquital be returned. In wellinfoimed quarters, it is said that Lord John Kusfeell will endeavor to evade going over to Clonmell, so us to avoid the awful exposure which awaits him there, at the hands of Whiteside, Butt, Holmes and O'Longhlen. It is reported that Lord iteorgeBentinck has won no lets than Xi-O.OCiO, by Surplice carrying off the St. Leger ttukes.

We bave received our Paris advices of last evening, which are of a very interesting nature. * The returns of the Bank of France are agiin favorable. In tee Assembly, Lamartine s amendment, piedgiug the State to provide liibor for all its citizen?, was lo^t midst much tumult, by n majority of 187 to SO. It in btlieved that the election of Louis Napoleon and Bugeaud may be reckoned upon us cetain ; the event is looked forward to with much anxiety by all parties. and the return cf the above named candidates will embarrass the government greatly. It is believed tl>at the legitimet?!.cd Orleaui-ts will effjctuallyxombine to support Marshal Bugeaud. The clubs <nit of doors are preparing for the revival of violent proceedings There are now 105 candidates for the Department of Seine alone * It is raid that ( harles Albert will be ready to take the field with 150.000 men, by the close of the armistice. The troops are said to be in high spirits; aid their body is daily augmented by volunteers from France, n.tiny of them old soldiers. Charles Albert will certainly reluse to renew the armistice. In Spain l'ree corps are said to be forming quickly :n Catalonia. Mirosoi has been banished from Madrid, and deprived of his office ol Oeneralissiino of New Castile. 1 rom IJerlin we learn that the city was quiet. There had been nothing settletl about the ministry. We have advioes from Vienna to the 11th inst. Tho Hungarian deputies who waited upon the Emperor wen highly dissatisfied with bis answer, and at they left the. audience thiy mounted red feathers and cockades. and left the city thus adorned, for I'erth, to report their ill success at Presburg. However, they were j badly received, as the citizens and inhabitants are en tirtly C|>po?eu to the republic an tendencies of the deputies. Tbe fieling against theui was so strong tl:ey were not allowed to land, and were compelled to remoTe their red decorations while in I'resburg The white i? kept flying.

The two a 1 mi ralS, however. jointly called upon the Neapolitan fleet not to attack I'alermo. and when accounts left, this . request had been respected. J he account of the Sardinian fleet having left Venice, is confirmed. It is raid to have h9en stip'Jla ted that the Austrian* are not to occupy the city pending the f resent negociations. Accounts mm Florence and Bologna state that troubles are almost hcurly expected there. Italy. We learn by letters from Genoa, dated the fith. that the hril.ith war steamer Sidon. Cupt.

Seldom lias a ballet been got up moie completely and splendidly; thedaucers,tableaux, I and general airnngement, have been perfect, and | whenever, hereafter, the Monplaisir troupe wish to draw a lull house. they will only have to aunounce the balict of th* " Ksineralda." With such a magnificent house, f.uch a first rate company, and the well known enterprise and tact of the present proprietor, ttu re is no such woi d as fail at the Park; and wo are quite safe in predicting that the successful issue of the present Lallet season is but a foreshadowing of the continued good fortune which will hereafter attend Old Urury. To night. Mr. and Mrs Gilbert will make their fiist appearance since their return from Kurope, in the comedy of " The lUvuls;'" and the laughable farce cf " Turning the Tables" will conclude the per| l'onnances. Broadway Thkatrk.?The two popular pieces of j the u lris-h Attorney,-' and the ' Happy Man.'' wero presented last evening, Mr. Collins sustaining tho principal parts. Ilia Galway Attorney, of sixty years i ago. is no caricature, such as we have seen presented by ('ther Irish comedians It was perfect both in conception and acting, and was received with rapturous ' applame by the audience. Th? drunken scene wat j really admirable, and had but one drawback It was ir.aired by the very indifferent actiuz of those cast for ' the subordinate part*. With the exception of Mr. Andrews there was really ho support rendered Mr. CoHibf in the piece. Why is this '!

Never was there brought forward a more beautital drama, and never was such a lovely piece better performed. It is a very remarkable play. It has this about it, which few have?there is not a single character introduced which is not highly entertaining, effective, and absolutely necessary. Kvery scene is a picture of real life and manners, such as exist in Knzland; and every scene tells, producing an indescribable effect upou every spectator. We saw many vainly endeavoring to conceal the tears which flowed involuntarily at several patsapes, especially whi'D Capt. Cuttle (Mr Bur:on) breaks to Florence (Mrs. Loder) the escape of Walter. (Mr. Grace.) Mr. Burton placed the frank old honest sailor to the life. Mr. Burton was called out by loud acclamation, when the curtain fell.

THE VVEEKL Y HERALD. The Weekly Herald will be published at 9 o'clock this morning. It will contnii^ all the news of the wruk, Including that received lut evening by the America. Tlio Foreign \cws.?The Contents of tlila Day's Herald. We are crowded with news of various kinds. The foreign intel'igence bi ought by the America? he particulars of the murder in Leonard street? 'he report of the proceedings at the Mariners* Church, on the presentation of the freedom of the city to Frederick Jerome, tSrc., &c. dcc., fill our columns to-duy. To make room for the above we are obliged, of co'irse,to leave out a great dea| ot' interesting matter, including the speech cj Leslie Combs at Vauxhall t!arden last night. The news from Europe is of the lirst importance. The outbreaks in Ireland, caused by starvation, will attractattention. They indicate the condition ot that unfoitunate country, and are. probably, but a beginning of the food riots that are to mark its history lor the next six months, or more. These riots may lead to something of the greatest consequence to the freedom of Ireland. See intelligence " to the latest moment." Our advices from the continent of Europe are not very encouraging. Affairs there have a threat" ening aspect. The financial advices from Europe by this am" val are of very little importance, and *lo not vary materially from those previously received. Consols had slightly advanced, and the liank of England had increased its bullion asm-til am6uut, and reduced its circulation. The demand for money fiom the commercial classes was moderate, and the rates of interest ranged from two and a hall to three per cent. We find nothing in the London papers relative to the movements of MrCorcoran, and know nothing yet regarding the re" suit of his mission. Commercially, the accounts are a little more favorable than those received by the Acadia. Cotton was pot in active demand, neither had there been any improvement in prices; hut l?ppn niiit*? an n/lvunno corn. Breadstuff's generally were dull, and prices somewhat depressed ; l>ut the prospect of an extensive demand lor Indian corn and Indian meal was good, and a further improvement in prices was pretty generally admitted. The pot itoe crop will be lamely deficient, and nothing will supply the place of that root as well as Indian corn. The | news w ill give an impetus to shipments of this grain, and as it is an article we have in great abundance, it is fortunate for the producers that the question as to foreign wants is settled so early in the seas?n. Our correppondence is full;?we .shall begin its publication in to-morrow's llnald. Tlic Murder Cant. In the cure of John S. Austin, who stands chnr?od 1 with shooting Timothy Shi a. on Thursday night, while in an a0ray In which Mr. Austin received severe njuries, was given to tho jury at half-past six o'clock, the testimoney of which we give in another column; and At kalf-patt two o'clock this Morning they had . not agreed upon a verdict, the jury stauding ten for a verdict that the deceased came to his death by a gunshot wound inflicted by John S. Austin, and four for ; a verdict that the-deceased came to his death by some ! person or persons to the jnry unknown The Coroner will, this morning, If they do not agree, (lli-charge the in andempanm-1 a new jury. The testimony, it will be seen, is remarkably conflict. ing; and as for identity, there is none that goes to show that Austin is the man, only that the per-on who was seen to shoot the pistol, wore a white hat. Tilt triicoriL ki^ifitios.?This body closed its i deliberation? at a lnte hour last evening. It bad been expected that protracted debates ?ould bare arisen on I feTeral important topics. such ax Bishop r inderdonk's case and the St. I'bilips' (colored) church ease. But the expedition with which the business of tho house was accomplished, brought their labors to a close after a fesfion of only three days. On the leportaut subject touching the qualifications of lay members of conventions. Dr. Vinton's resolution finally prevailed, by a considerable majority, so that if the present action is approved by the next convention, no lay delegate; can be admitted thereafter, except such ad are actually communicants in the church. In reference to tbe case ot Bishop Onderdonk. it was, \ after considerable debate, resolved that the trustees of I the Kplf.copal Fond be directed to pay to the Right Her. Bishop T. Onderdonk. D. D., out of the income of j tbe eaid fund, (excepting tbe portion set apart for ao1 cumulation.) tbe sum of $2,600 annually, until the luilher order of this convention; to take effect from : the fiist day of the sitting of thia body.

(Great cheerio*.) Look but for a moment upon the innocent face of that orphan child who in now before you, whose almost lifeit 8a form arrested your attention as it floated upon the wares in the agony of apparent death, bet was saved thiough your exertion* und now Urns as an evidence of jour valor and your worth ! Behold also her faithful relative, and now only friend, (for the calamities of that day made this lovely babe an orphan,) who rerueedto Hive hers-lf and sacrifice the child; and tell me whether you do not realize more true enjoyment and peace of mind than worldly wealth c&u Rive -a worldly fame bestow ( hsjihh. then, these feelings, I beseech you; for as the beacon light upon a rock-bound cr<n?t cheers the heart and rdvives the drooping spirits i)f the care-worn sailor, so will the reflection of virtuous ictionc, mch as these, shed a lustre upon your path through life, and prepare you for the courts of Heaven. But I have another scene to sketch, in which you, Jeron:e. performed unother act of noble bravery, which, uf itself, alone is sullicWnt to emblazon in colors ol living light the name of one so intimately identified with its history When the Honry Clay was stranded upon the phoals of Barnegat, you formed one of the srew of that noble vef*el. and he to whom I hi vo be fort referred as one of the officers of the Ocean Monarch, was acting a* her pecond mate. Upon that occasion, lie, With four others and yourself, undertook the tiay.ardoos experiment of convening a line to the wore over tlie rolling surf which threatened to PDgulph the stouteft yawl ; and so, imleed, It did, fur the tui.y of the waves was to> great for the frail boat long to live, and she was finally swamped, and four of your com p mi.) us pe ifhed. But you, and the Individual who w;vs afterwards tbe second warn of the Occam Monarch, were, through tbe mercy of an overruling Providcnee, preserved for future usefulness. and reached the ship iu afety. After an exposure such as this, an ordinary mind would have shrunk from /iny further attempt to iccompliah so bold and daring an act; but little Aid Lhey know tbe firm, determined purpose which controlled your aotions and urged you forward in the path of duty, who believed for a moment that while a ray of hope remained to rescue from destruction your fellow nien.thtt dangers would prevent, or difficulties, hownvergrert, fail to lie encountered, to attain that object. There are reflections connected with tbe^e circumstances, which ought to mnke a deep, lasting, impression upon the hearts of those, whose duties call them upon the mighty deep, and who lire peculiarly ox,iosed every moment of their lives to share the fate of those wbo sunk and perished with tbe Ooean Monarch, but It is not my place to enforce tbe mor?l ">r to enlarge upon the train of thought, which naturally rushes upon the mind in the contemplation of the subjeot. Aline is a more humble, but not more pleasing theme, for I am the instrument of tbe representative s of the people of the llrst commercial city of tbis Western world, to tender to you their most pratlilul thanks for tbe valuable services which you have rendered to tbe cause of humanity, and to ooinmend you and your fnmilv. to the Chre ami hrnf^tlnii of Unit Prnvld^nn# "?ho guides the whirlwind and direct-* the Hlorm,'' and us uu tvidedce of our sincirity. to udopt you ae one (four citizens, aud enroll your name upon th? catalogue sf those who have diitingulsed themselves ior deeds of valer, philanthropy, and b?nevolence. It is tru? that Knglund claims you us her son, but in tho con?lduratlon of those who display that truo dignity of churauter, which prompts to act*| of Christian charity, we recognize no distinction of nativity or birth, but elairc. them as our brother and our friend. For the purpose of carrying out the views of the Common Counoil, we have caused to be prepared the gold box now before you, which, on behalf, nod in the name of the inhabitants of the city of New York, I have the honor to present for your acceptance; and in ao doing, to assure you. that it is with feelings of satisfaction and pleasure, that we accompany this gift with the freedom of our city, to that hereafter wherever your lot may be C88t. or however situated, you may hail from this place, und claim to be. as in fact you are, an honorary citizen of the commercial metropolis of our country " Honor afd thanie from no condition rise." The box is beautifully wrought in fine chased work) bearing the Initials of the name of Jerome in the :entre of the top. The inside bore the following inscription :? " The city or New York to Frederick Jerome, is a testimonial of his daring acts of heroism and hunanity in saving the Uvm of the passengers and crew >< the ship Henry Clay, stranded at Barnegat, 25th of. March, 1846; and also of the ship Ocsau Monarch, luring her contlagia ion at aea, on th>j Hth of \ugust, 1848. September 'Ji'th, 1848." An engraved copy of the proceedings of the Common Pouncil in a neat silt fram-, v.uj also presented tr lim at the same time _ The llev.Mr. Parker, on behalf of Jerom-', replied as ruows :? Your Honor, the Mayor, ami honorablochairtnan and members of tlie committee of both boards of the city iounollmf New York. Gentlemen? 1 am requested by my brother, only an humblo pallor, forema?t hand on board the t-hip New World, Capt Knight of New York., to make for him a reply to the address that has just been made to hi in by the distinguished chairman of the Board of Aldermen, and the expression of honortble notice that has been here tuken of hint. It is ^o unusual an occurrence for an unfettered sailor to b? brought into public notoriety, and to receive from such a body an the honorable corporation of the first punrercial city in America, a notice of his sen ices, that he feels utterly unable to make answer for himielf. If he were able in other respects, he feels toe much overwhelmed by the publicity into which his efforts in the caute of humanity have been this ivening brouyht, and the unwonted position n which he finds himself, to express hlms-ilf in a fitting manner. The forecastle, and the shroud*, and the yard-arms of a ship, are but a poor school in whieh tc make an orator; although they not seldom make a man, and an honest and well meaning one, too. lthe tboric is not to be learned therfe, unless it be the rhetoric of obedience; nor Is IorIc. with its subtle distinctions, to be taught there, unless it be la the school nf hardship, and toil, and adventurous daring. My tioneft brother withes me first to speak of his shipmutes, in both the boats of the New World, before he. will venture to have any reply made for himself. He wishes that justice may be publicly done to them rathtr than auogate to himself all tho merit, if there was any. in the successful efl'ort to save ife, to which you have alluded. He wishes that heir dangers, and toils, and daring, on that dreadful day. be noticed, the events of which are (till thrilling so many hearts, and the wail or whose voe reaches us in every breeze that sweeps the Atlanta waters towards our (.bores.
