The readers of the Herald may rest assured that, during the election which is about to take place, we shall spare no pains nor expense to place before them full and accurate returns, from the various States, at the earliest moment possible. Those returns will be valuable as a reference hereafter, and we shall endeavor to have them as correct as po.-sible. We intend to give the returns of all the elections held in this country, Presidential or otherwise?first, telegraphically, and then officially. The returns, however, can be sent over the wires with official accuracy, if they be given to the operators properly and correctly. All these returns will be published in the Weekly Herahl. The Steamship Britannia. T! is steamer is out an unusual length of time. She is in her fix'eenth day. She must hare encou! tered the late severe gale. The Presidential Election?The Development* of public Opinion In the Pennsylvania and Ohio Elections. At the Philadelphia Convention the old whig paity was disbanded. It had fallen behind the progress of popular opinion: and the creed upon which it had sustained such frequent and disastrous defeats, was formally, openly, and finally, abandon* d. It was not abandoned in the refusal of a party proclamation?it was not abandoned in the denial of an endorsement of old measures or of new questions dividing the two great parties of ilie rami a ign ; but it was openly, lorinally, and finally, relinquished in the surrender of Henry Clay. The experiment was bold and emphatic, hazardous aud uncertain, yet imperatively demanded by the events of the times, and the shaping of the popular Bentiment upon them. Looking, then, to the tendencies of popular feel" ing, the ex)*eriment w,6 made. The party was instantly thrown into chaos and insurrection; and, notwithstanding the ulmosf hopeless disorganize- I tion of the democrats, their condition was harmony, contrasted with the confusion in the whig ranks. The election*, following upon the heels of the nomination of General Taylor, his cool reception of that nomination, andlus acceptance of the South Carolina resolutions?his unique and singular indifference to mere party obligations?his consistent maintenance ot an indejiendent reservation of opinions?all contributed to extend the mutiny, and to increase the hazard of the game, which the whigs. in their extremity of distress, liati resolved to play. Such was the chaotic confusion of the whig party as late as the month of September. The prospects of Gen. Cess had almost shaped themeelvts into the certainty of success. The inevitable loss of the State of New York, from the disaU feet1 on ot the barnburners, the dangers threatened ty this disaffection to other democratic States of the sorth, were all of them so completely counterbalanced and overwhelmed by the disruption of the elements of the whig party, as to leave scarcely a doubt of the triumph of the Baltimore nomination, with all the odds against it. 0(ipoitunely coming in at this crisis of the con. test. otherletters wer<- published from Gen. Taylor. Though entirely consistent with what he had written before, from his condescension to enter into explanations, they were deemed satisfactory, even by the mutineers ; and such as were not appeased thereby wer^ left no alternative than to adopt them, after the reiterated refusal of Mr. Clay to permit his name to be used by the barnburners of his party, in their efforts to prevent its reorgani zation. With the latt heart-rending speech a Vau.\h?U of Mr. Botts, (like Senator Bagby'a ex Till alincurBiimcnt ncrn inRt the TV*as annexation.} the mutiny in th?- whig camp was silenced into submission; and that other man, that champion of lntinitemial crudities, he who in his abhorrence of war h d be< n plepsed to style Gen. Taylor a hireling butcher; he who in his love of liberty eOj, up a triumph in cypher, amounting to a cypher, for the Irish patriots ?t Sllevenamore; the champion of jMexico. Fourier, red republicanism in France, and brun bread end blue milk in America, con* attained to lall into the procession: and with such grace as a caoutchouc conscience may command, to b?-strid> the prostrate body of the great ernbodi" xneni, while holding aloft to the applauding blue- I stockings a banner, emblazoned with the Philadelphia nominations. \\ ith the accession, but not because of the ac- | cession, of llie godlike Daniel, and the junior embodiment, and the vegetable philosopher, the jirot|>ects ol < .eneral 'J'aylor brighten straight BMi:' These (leyenth hour disciples curse bit- ' terl)- tl.ey cry hard ; but they swallow the medi- \ rim and Horace, hoarse from the " noise and coiifu: ion" at Vatixhall, though 11 Some natural t?*?ri> he .-lied-.

The October elections in Pennsylvania and Ohio are amply significant of the hold of Gen. Taylor upon the popular mind, particularly the result in j Pennsylvania. We are in the active processes of j another revolution?it is that revolution in public senin ert wh:rh dictated the nomination of Gen. Taylor by the whig convention. The i election of Johnston as Governor of Pennsyl- j vania may be attributed to his personal popu- I larity, and to many local causes, such, for instance. as the fraternization of ihe native Americans and the i'ree-soilers with the whigi, but the main and moving cause is the general favor in wh^ch the name of Taylor is held in the keyBtone State. The people of that commonwealth are plain and simple in their manners, and the habits ?f General Taylor are congenial. They like him, because they know him to be a plain, unoster taiiousmun. A primitive and peaceful people, too, are most suscepuble to the claims of a military chieftain. His couiLge, his achievements, and all the little incidents of the camp, have, to a rural people, a peculiar fascination. Far off from the scenes and paraphernal^ of war, they read and hearof battles with all the enthusiasm of romance; ard if the bero, as in this instance, exemplifies in all his conduct, the quiet and homely traits of mind which mark the plain, domestic man, he will win upon their partiality in spite of themselves. Thus, it would seem, has the nomination of General Taylor operated among the farmers of Pennsylvania?thus, it would appear, it is operating all over the Union. The election of Johnston has broken the spell in Pennsylvania, of the invincibility of the regugular democratic nomination. The vote of Lancaster, taking the le?d from Berks, may also be regarded as an omen of most favorable significance to the whigs. Yet the election of Johnston was not accomplished, and could not have been accomplished, by the whig party alone. Various elements, heretofore acting with the democrats ! ?a? mau* wlontiffafl with tKo urViinra ?rs\??ks4 ikair tickets in the late election. Foremost, and most important of these elements, is the party growing out of the Buffalo Convention, known as the free soilers. If the facts could be ascertained, it would, doubtless, appear that from four to five thousand Van Buren democrats voted for JohnI ston. Their object may yet be made apparent in the Presidential struggle. In that election, every 1 democratic free soiler will doubtless vote for Van I Buren; but since the success of Johnston, and the rapidly growing populprity of Gen. Taylor, it may be reasonably expected that many free soil whigs i will desert the Van Buren standard, and rally to j the support of the Philadelphia nominees. The control of th? public works having fallen ioto the I hands of the whigs, it will be something unusual if that circumstance does not operate against Gen. | Cass among the thousunds of employees on the rail roads and canals. General Taylor, therefore, may dispense with the barnburners, who supported I Johnston, and yet gain enough from other sources to make up the deficiency. While, then, we do not consider the State of Pennsylvania as beyond all doubt certain to go for General Taylor?while we-donot consider the October election as the exact test of the election of November?it would ! seegi that the democrats have been losing ground too far to recover their ascendancy during the ! present campaign. The deserters from their ranks j will not return to the support of Cass; and the only hope of Cass is in the contingency of Quaker and I free soil desertions from the whig ranks to the ' support of Van Buren. The natives will continue 1 j their alliance with the whigs ; and, altogether, 1 as iar as the result is foreshadowed, the State of ( Pennsylvania is lost to General Cass; although promised to him by General Sanderson, in the .Baltimore Convention, by a majority of 30,000. The October result in Ohio is not distinctly J known, nor have we any exact data upon which to I estimate the eflect of the free soil vote in November. But, as the headquarters and the great ! strength of the Buffalo nominees is in the Western ! Reserve, and as that quarter of the State is of itself sufiicient in its disatlection to lose the State to ! the whigs, the disaffection in other parts of the I State in both parties being neutralized, it would i argue that General Taylor has but a slender chance for Ohio. The free soilers, undoubtedly, have | ' some idea of the extent of their organization, its | strength, and the proportion drawn respectively I from the other two parties. They declare th?t in j no evenr can uenerai xayior secure me oiaie 01 ] Ohio. This may be so; but with the security of Pennsylvania, the vote of Ohio loses its importance. As tar as the States have been tried, and as far as conceded, General Taylor, without tlie vote of Ohio, (if he has the vote of Pennsylvania) will be elected. Tiiere is, also, a very promising indication, notwithstanding the late ukase of Mr. Calhoun, his triends, and the support of General Cass by the organ of Mr. Calhoun, that South Carolina, by her legislature, will cast her nine votes tor General Taylor, so. that, in every aspect of the campaign, th?y>roepects of < ieneral Taylor are titty p?r cent better than they were one month ago, and far superior to the prospects of Mr. Polk at this stage of the canvass of '44. In one word, from present evidences, testimony, indications, and appearances. th<* presence of Ge I neral Taylor will be required in Washington at the next inauguration. The Morality oy a Monarchical Government?When destiny had placed Lamartine on the un- I easy seat of power he so briefly occupied, how ! tender were his reproaches when he enumerated to the Trish deputation, who solicited his aid to redress their country's wrongs, the various acts of i ciuel injustice England had inflicted on France! ! and how divine the spirit that sought to forgive I i them ! He desired not to let loose rebellion in Ireland to avenge the honors that English gold and influence had perpetrated in La Vendee; and i the destruction ot their pecuniary resources, by j the introduction of a spurious |?per currency. It j is difficult for human nature, constituted as it is, to j look with so Christian a charity on grievances 90 great; there is in them a buoyancy which even time cannot submerge. The scattered events in | I the history of the past, something like the stray j : motes that float on the surface of the water, are 1 attracted into forms and combinations that fre- j I qnently suggest matters of curious and interesting ; reflection. Among the first which strike the mind are coincidences which a fertile imagination often traces to some present circumstance or event. And, in this respect, it is not a little singular that one of the gently enunciated grievances of this statesman against Eogland, should have been made at the very time when materials were beina prepared that should be the m?ans of tracing its authors to the very act. The unconscious instrument to this discovery [ is ;i recently published history of the Hank of Kngland, by Mr. Francis, who seeks in it to exculpate Mr. Pitt and hi ministry, from the censure of joaterity, for inundating France with spurious ashiL'nitts. 1 lie attempt, however, proves in its thp truth of tli. . ?i ? ?' v..*. |-iu?rni, nidi tin umiBcrcei Iriend is worse than an avowed enemy. The last number of the J'ortmn ijuarttrly, in reviewing the work, denieathe anther's conclusions, and supplies ^mc c"fioufi detail to substantiate hie ground.

The reviewer, by dint of research, lays before his readers a case tried belore the late Lord Chief Justice Krnyon. for the recovery of the value of a dishonored bill of exchange, for a sum amounting to about thirty pounds. The plaintiff was an engraver, of the name of Strongitharm, and had been waited on by a Mr Lukyn, who entered into a negotiation with him to make far nmilitt ot the plates, on blocks, from whic h the assignats of the French Directorywere printed. The progress of the plaintifl'a case established, to the satisfaction of the court, that the order was given by Lukyn to enable the government to supply the Duke of York's army, with A! I-.- * ? T ? II I J 1 I illlo pajurr iu tiu umic in riuiidna ana rist-winrre. The defence was characteristic of the transaction. | It was pleaded that, being based on fraud, the amount could not be recovered. The Chief Justice, however, took another view on the point, and < held that it was lawful for a government thus to distress an enemy. Not only so, but he expressed 1 his belief that the work was ordered by the defendant as the agent ol the government; or if not lh<> Hirppf nnp liia nrnnppHinffri hu/1 if A flanrfinn i It is almost unnecessary to say that the plaintiff recovered a verdict. The reviewer's narrative being so conclusive on the subject, it ends with the verdict. It happens, fortunately for those who may desire the gratification of their curiosity, or for others who wish to read a morel in the sequel, that the review fell into the hands of a journal published in a suburb ef Newcastle on Tyne. His information has added the remaining links which I complete the chain of evidence that fixes the ' transaction on the government. The obsorvaJ tion is almost trite, that honesty of purpose seeks : no concealment; its opposite is confirmed in this case. A secluded vale in the wilds of Northumbtrland was found, wherein to make the pat>erand print the notes. At Houghton mill, in the neighborhood of Plexham, the property of a Mr. Smith, not only was it made, but the same premises contailed the presses that were sent down by governI ment to print the notes, which were worked off by pressmen who arrived with the machinery. I The editor adds, by way of conclusion, that those : who desire ocular demonstration of these Facts, . may do so by calling on a gentleman whom he names, and who resides in the neighborhood, who : is the possessor ot a variety of blank specimens of the paper, and alt>o of the printed impressions of the forgeries. It might be somewhat problematical to stignia tize this transaction otherwise than a dishonorably i and immoral one, notwithstanding the mitigating ! opinion expressed by the chief justice in favor of | the law that sanctioned such a means of distress! ing an enemy. It is not an open, straightforward mode ot fighting a battle, but an assimilation to | the secretly dark and dastardly stabs and assnsi. nations of the Italian stiletto. Not only has France ) to remember this infamy us a nation, but thousands j of her citizens still live, who have, by its means, been reduced from atfluence and cointort to the occupation of menial offices and the direst poverty. The ingenuity of a host of agents was called into pley to introduce the paper into the country; and ' the numerous British cruisers on the coa9t floated ! them t? the shore, whence they were picked up> ' and frequently applied to the most fraudulent purposes by designing men. Estates of value were pur| chased and paid forwith the spurious treasure which i the waves had cast on the shore, ltedress there was | none, the victims prefering rather to lose their j property than jienl their heads during the reign of terror, which the ceaseless terrors of the guil. jotine inspired. The chief perpetrators of the revolutionary atrocities in the south were those who profited most largely as utterers of this money. It a doubt was displayed in its acceptance, or an offer of purchase rejected, a certain doom awaited the helpless proprietor, and often; to make restitution impossible, it was speedily carried out. Prostrated as were the pecuniary resources of i France, she had yet expedients to restore their vitality. The patriotism of her citizens assented to the suggestions of the Directory; they yielded up to the nationul treasury their plate and their trinkets, frequently the heirlooms of a long line of descent, to be coined for the use of the State. To supply the wants of the inferior medium of mone- j tarv circulation, the church and cathedral bells were dismounted, and converted into the coin that exists to the present day. With the remembrance of such inflictions and sacrifices having been imposed upon them, it would be almost too much to believe that Frenchmen do not sometimes indulge in bitter thoughts and expressions against Kog| land. Whilst, however, England sought to "d si tress'" her enemy, hew much more has she disi tressed herself. The | eople and the principles she i sought to crush, at the cost of millions of lives and hundreds of millions of money, still survive. ! Thirty-three years of abeyance have terminated in another deieat of cralty oppression. Tne temI porary cloud that hangs over the victory will be dispersed, and they will yet be rewarded for their past suflerings in the cause of lreedom. Pitt, the miir>h vnnnfpH mint who tlip stnrm lpft hie bark a stranded wreck: he has sunk into the grave, along with his kindred companions, to give an account of their stewardship and their deeds; and it were Christian charity to pray, that the power who allows the sun to shine alike on the good and the bad, may judge them mercifully. Nomination forKeoister?The whig county convention will assemble at the Broadway house, this evening, for the purpose of making nominations for the coming election. One of these will be for the office of Register of the city and cjunty of New York. Various persons are aspiring to this nfflcp. n??* of whom. Mr F.du-in Willimna an well known in the community as the compiler of Willittm9' Register, and other valuable statistical i works, has already been nominated by a lar^e I meeting, recently held in this city. Mr. Williams is a man of great experience and statistical knowledge, is as well qualified to fill the oflice of Register as any in the city, and if elected, would, no doubt,discbarge his duties to the satisfaction of all parties, as well as with honor to himself. We trust his claim* wjII not be overlooked by the convention. Tli? Crops. TYakAi.uoiA, COth Sept, 1843. This county's corn and cotton crop* havr not b?en belter for several year* put.

Pa its Theatre ?The proprietor of the Park, with his accustomed enterprise and liberality, has re engaged Madame Bishop for six nights. This is a sensible movement, and will, without doubt, be properly appreciated. Near Yorkers know how to reward talent, and especially that talent which displays itself in the vocal art. A vioit to the P.trk Theatre, at present, is a feast of harmony and beauty. I'be soft and harmonious pounds if one of the sweetest and purest singers upon the American stage rest upon the oar in remembrance after the hearer ha* retired to his home, while be recalls to his vision the forms of beauty and grace which flitted before him in mazes of the fairy dance An evening spent at this house must, if any entertainment can, induce pleasant ilream*. The MonplaUirs are to appear to-night in their new ballet of ' Le Oiabie a Quatre." in which the whole troupe will figure. This piece is a ballet pantomime, containing five acts, and five tahlraux. Madame Bishop repeats ' La Sfogato," and the farce of ' Box and Cox" will be added to the other entertainments together with the performance; by the orchestra, of two overtures. Bowery Thfatrc.?To-night there will be performed at this house the celebrated equestrian drama of ' Putnam," a piece which is more universally admired than any other play of the kind. The gallant deeds of the bluff old Putnam, have afforded m<tny a theme i^t the novel writer and dramatist; but, in the present piece, the interest is intense, and the fearless horsemanship whico is displayed in the celebrated scene where Old Put, on his steed, gallops down the stone steps, leaping over every obstacle, is celebrated throughout the Union. Mr. G. F. Brawn, on his beautiful steed. Gaseile. will we are sure, perform the part in most gallant sty e, and Messrs. J M. Scott, rilton. Wlnxii Mil n k-? ...III .11 /,il I I ...tlx a varioun parts. The way in which this piece will be producedl will 1>h splendid we are certain, and those who go this evening m ill have the pleasure of seeing Putnam in all its pristine glory. Those elegaut dancers, Signora Clocca and Signor Neri, will appear in on- of their grand " Pas de Deux" after the drama; and the English version of the beautiful opera of " L'Elisire d'Amore" will conclude the performances. The principal characters will be suxtained by Miss Taylor. Mr A. Andrews and E. Warden. To-morrow evening Mr. Stevens, the indefatigable stage manager and excellent actor, will take his benefit. Broadway Thi.atrk.?This evening, the grand opera, in three acts, entitled " Maritana," will be produoed, with beautiful scenery, and every other property necessary to its being put upon the stage in the most effective and splendid manner. It Is scarcely necessary to say that the proprietors of this beautiful establishment are indefatigable in their exertions to render the Broadway conspicuous for a selection of the most novel and instructive entertainments, as they spare neither pains nor expense in the engagement of tne highest order of histrionic and musical talent. The opera of " Maritana" abounds with a great variety of excellent arias, cavatlnas, duets, trios, &c., and where these are sung in a language familiar to the earR of all our oitisens, they are beard with delight, and. consequently, duly appreciated The entertainments will close with the farce of the " Omnibus " Go early, as it is very probable the theatre, this evening, will be crowded from pit to dsme, to hear Reeves in some of his thrilling solos. National Theatrk.? The grand spectacle dram* of ,< Jvanhoe,'' which has been in preparation for some time past, will be produced this evening with groat | splendor. We understand that no expense has been spared to get up this piece in a style of magnificence whirh if would h? rtifHmilt fnr nnv theafro f.n inrnaii Scenery. dresses, armor, Ate , have all been prepared for the occasion. and the cast of the characters comrnren all the bent actor* of the company. Chaufrau, imself, will don the armor as the Black Knight, and | Mr Ca tlltch, one of the beat melo-dramatic actors ; on the *t?ge, will personate Isaac ot York. Miss Mm; tayer will be the Rebecca, the Maid of Judab, and Butke. Talmer, It J Jones S?.o , all have suitable characters We anticipate a long run for this splendid drama. In conrequence of the great demtni for seat* to witness the ever pepular " Mysteries and Miseries," Cbanfrau is induced to present it for one week longer, ' but this must positively be the last The burlesque of Mr. MacGreedy, also, has been so very successful that it, too, will be played for a few nights more. Tbus, the week opens well at the National, and the crowds that nightly assemble at this popular tbreatre. will this evening have a most attractive bill of amusements. Buetok's Thcatre.?This snug house Is doing a first rate business. The vaiious burlesques and eztrava] gan zas which are produced, in such rapid suooession, term to tickle the public taste amazingly, and the presentation on the stage, of well-known characters about town, that can be seen auy day, ' free-gratis, and for nothing,1' i* the most popular method of attracting crowds t? the house. ' Lucy did Sham Amour," the farce of" John Jones," and ' New York in SUcea." will form the bill of performances for this evening, and as all of these pieces are established favorites, the house will be crowded, no doubt. " Lucy did Sham Amour,1 is a most amusing medley, and the acting in it of Miss Cbapman. Miss Sinclair, Messrs. Meyer. Jordan, Johnaton. Rae. .vc , is capital The faroe of ' John Jones" is too well known to require praising Burton's acting, as Gay Ooodluck. is one of the richest pieces of comic pluying that this inimitable comedian does. The local drama of " New York in Slices'1 will conclude the performances. It is well got up, and. with some exceptions, is a capital one. The scenes, representing the rr.nat rpl?hmti>i1 nlftnvi In t.ha ftlf* of Vnrlr ara very accurate. Anions the various slices, the one from the Kive Points is really a thrilling one The acene between the heart broken mother (Mrs. Knight) anil her drunken husbuid (Mr Lynne). is a most beautifully acted one. To our thinking, this scene is the chtf d'truvrt of the piece. Nihlo's, Artor Flace.?This beautiful theatre with its splendid stock company, and Feveral performers of the highest rank, still continues to attract large audiences, who are nightly delighted with the magni" flcent pieces which are produced. During the past week, Mr Macready has appeared in several splendid characters, which were received with great applause, and most jurtly, for the personations were as near perfection as possible. Miss Isabel Dickinson has become a great favorite in the amusing characters which she undertakes, and which are always played in a style which cannot but call forth the approbation of those who witness them. Sbakspeare's beautiful play of j " Julius Civsar " is offered In the bill for to-night, in ! | which Mr. Macready will appear as Hrutus, supported 1 hy a powerful cast; the principal characters of which 1 wjl, 'wt fUfttained by artists of acknowledged ability The'laug.*,*Me farce of-Boots at the Swan." will also be produced XVe *?ul<l to those who na?W not yet visited this thea'n1, K? before it is too late, for Niblo is quite as succcs?f?i *0 his productions wnich lend to feed and delight the m.'.nd, as he has been in every undertaking, and the public we" know that be has never failed In anything.

Oct 14 ] We have yet received nothing to contradict the rumored election of the locofoco candidate for Governor; nor have we the details to confirm It It Is possibly true We are willing to admit that It Is; but in doing so. we with to call attention to the details which we publlth from thirty counties?all that we have received. To obtain the footings given, we hav? taken nothing for the whigs, which does not seem right, while we oonceded to the locos all, and a great deal more, than the returns seem to justify. For instance, Koss county, in one report, is Ret down at only 37 for Ford, and in another at 609. Although the 37 m%iori> ty is probably the majority of a single town in Ross county, (as Clay had 041,) yet we only set down 37 as the whole majority of the county Loraine oonnty U set down, in all the papers, at 1,000 for Ford. This we out down to 100, as Clay's majority was 103. Rlchland oouiit* is reported 1.300 for Ford This oannot be. and we thro?r it out. Ford's reported majorities in all the other counties seem fair; and yet, after making ail these deductions, he is only 1.0^2 behind Clay's majorities in the same counties, wben Clay had within a fraction of 6,000 in the State. Law Intelligence. Trial of Theohork Olcott, Cashier of the Can&l Bank, on the Charge of Embezzling thi: Funds of the oodensharoa Bank. Albany, October 12.?Theodeore Oloott, cashier of the Canal Bank, was plaoed upon trial on an indictment for embeixilng $4,208 belonging to the Ogdensburgh Dank. Henry O. Wheaton. Samuel Stevens and Nioholas Hill, jr., Ksqrs., appeared at his counsel; Marcus T. Reynolds, Esq., associate counsel. The District Attorney and Samuel S. Koote, Esq , on behalf of the people. The following persons were sworn in as jarors to try the oause ?Dsvid Mead, J. li. Williams, A. Gilford. S. Poblman, James Jook, Henry Jud*on, D. Hungerford. r Batchelder, A. Cass, Elias Sohermeihorn Henry Dutcher and Eleetns Shear. The District Attorney opened the canse by saying that the questions involved in it were matters of great importance both to the prisoner and to the community. Th? pritnu f\t imKimlamanf was ah? ?a* ???- - - ? ?? "= j r'-It iu perpetrated under very different circumstances from the crimes of the nature heretofore tried here. The aooused is a man connected by every tie, both of business and relation, with the lirst men of the oity and the State, yet he stood here to be judged as a culprit. with the other culprits who had been tried by the Court this week. It might not be amiss to take this case into consideration, not by the man'* relationship. but by his acts relative to the explosion of the Canal Bank. The failure of an Institution as gipantic in its operations as the Cannl Bank, is felt by all The embezzlement he is charged with 1* of a package containing $4,208 of the bills of the Ogdt-nhburgh Bank. If the prosecution succeeded ia substantiating the charge, they should demand a eon* viction. Mr. Olcott was the cashier of the Canal Bank ; the Ogdensburgh Bank did business in the county of St. Lawrence The bills of the latter Institution w?re either redeemed in New Yark or Albany. The Canal Bank was its agent to redeem its bills in this city. The bills of the bank, if taken at another bank, are sealed up and tbe amount marked on them, and sent to the agency for redemption. The Canal Bank had in their possession for the of tuch redemption, some $30,000 or $40,000. On the 6th of July tbe Mechanics' and Farmers' Bank Sent tbe package of $4,2t>8 to the Canal Bank, and it was there redeemed. It should have been sent by exfpress, according to tbe agreement with the bank that psuedthe bills. Mr. Olcott wrote that he had received it. but that he did not forward the paokage but sent it to New York for the purpose of being thrown into market, or used for some other purpose. The Ogdensburgh Bank heard no more from their agency nntil ".rj iiriwu vi UK expioMon, ana 01 tne Dills being thrown Into market There were three counts in the ind.ctment; the flrst charges that Mr. Oleott was the cashier, and that thiH package came into his possession, and that without authority he embezzled the raid package; the second, that an cashier he wa? the agent of the Ogdensburgh Bank; the third, Hinillar to the firft The last count wm for larceny, in stealing the package. The District Attorney then took his peat and called the first witness.
