He stated that the action was brought by Mrs. Nott, a widow lady, agaiufct the defendant, for th? seduction ef her daughter. This daughter was the only one of the family who made it her home with the iuwmri was uuurr luti age ui tweuif ycmrs, auu worked with her mo.ner in tbe frailly of Mr Wyman. Of I)? Witt. The defendant in thiB ca?e commenced Attentions to the daughter in M*jr, 1848 and ?<r? ?u?h in *11 respects as to be regarded of an honorable character. He continued these visits regularly, every I two weeks, until tbe following October, The next t n? she saw him was on tbe 26th of November ioilowing, when she met him at his mother's. On that evening he was alone with fcer at his mother's rmi. dence. and on the '28th be took her back to Mr. WyJnan's, which was her home He was in her oompany on several occasions afler this; two days in December; the next time he saw her was in the lait of January. In Deoember, she developed tbe fact to him that she was In the family way. In January the faot nas again communicated to him. On the tiii.d Sunday in March he again visited her; and in the latter part of April he came to tbe house of Mr. Wyman. and presented her with a bible, and in June be again visited ber, and advised with her in reference to her situation, advising her to get rid of the ohild. Counsel also proposed to prove promises of marriage, on tbe part of the defendant. For tbe ruin of the reputation of the daughter, tbe loss of her servics to tbe mother, who was entitled to them, the plaintiff claimed damages. The child is still living. ^The first witness called was Hakhiet E.

[We will not go into the detail of this witness' testimony It is sufficient to say tbat It was direct and positive, rhowing a continued intimacy between tbe parties, and the faot that they were in the habit of visiting one another at Mr. Wywau's and at his mother's, which visits continued at times for two or three days in succession. [The crocs-examination was conducted by Mr. Noxun. with his usual skill and ingenuity, and occupied souie two hours. No new facta of material interest were elicited. The witness sustained tbe prolonged examination with a self-possession and intelligence which were creditable. The case will be oonoluded to day ]?Syracute Star, Oct 28. Tlie Washington Monument. Washington, Ootober 25, 1848. To the Editor of ihk Hhiald? Sir In a communication pub ished in the Herald, on Sunday last, in relation to the Washington National Monument, now in the oourse of erection here, I regret to find that the writer has thrown out au insinuation, from whioh tbe reader might infer a want of economy on tbe part of the Bourd of Managers. He averts that, instead of employing a borne, as is usually dene, some forty or fifty men man a rope attached to a small truck and haul away." This is not tbe fact. The stone (blue gneiss) is landed on a wharf about one hundred and flt'ty yards from the foundation of the monument, and Is brought up to the building by a stone wagon drawn by four hordes, the stones weighing from two to eight ton?each. After thestone is deposited, some half a dozen laborers draw it up on a truck to the place where it in to be laid, (about eight feet high) because it cannot, at present be done in any other way, Instead of forty or fifty laborers, there are not mora than thirty employed on the monument; the rest are matons and other workmen, who are occupied industriously and skilfully, in laying the foundation, which is admitted by all who see it, to be the finest and most substantial specimen of masonry in this country. As the structure advances, machinery Will be obtaintdto facilitate the work, and render the expense as littlesf possible. iLThe Board of Managers, who have devoted thirteen years of their lives to the accomplishment of aa object which is intended to remove the stigma of ingratitude from the eharaoter of their country, are. of course, too much interested in its completion to expend the money they may obtain, unnecessarily or extravagantly. The work, when completed, will surpam every other mouument in the world, and do honor to the patriotic feelings of the American people, by whom it will be erected. The foundation is eighty one feet square, which will be narrowed to sixty" feet, at an elevation of twenty-seven feet, all of solid masonry?at this elevation the great obelisk (five hundred f?et high) will start. The walls will be fifteen feet thiok at the base, with|an opening in the centre, of twenty-five feet, to the top. The material, to far, has been obtained on the most reasonable terms and the whole monthly expenditure for labor does not exceed $1,340. a striking evidence that the most rigid economy it observed by the Board of Managers, in the erection of this magnificent and stupendous structure. This worki*, morennrlfr fhi> I nr>rl Ar.nuto.nt Kimurviairm of a. building committee, appointed by the board, and who, from the deep interest they feel in all that concerns the monument, aie oarelul that no useless expenditure (.hall be made fiesp'y y'rs, fee., OKO.

Klectlon Kcturiia?AHriiIIc, l<nkr, anil Mif sUHljipl Tel^raplii The general anxiety throughout the United States, to ascertain, at the earliest practicable moment, the remits of the Presidential election, induces the subBor b' r to re ,u?sl the telegrapher* on the various lines within the Atlantic. Lake and Mississippi Range, to keep their offices open at all hours of night, as well m tiny, for the reception and transmission of despatches, and for the correction of any errors, until tie returns are correctly transmitted between all the States that are connected by these lines, viz : Pennsylvania. New York, Ohio, Maryland. V rginia, Kin'.ucky, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois. Missouri, Iowa, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. &The exemplary manner in which the telegraphers generally have complied with public expectation oa such occasions. renders it needless to add more than a request that extreme care be token to avoid error, by requiiing that all despatches offered for transmission shall be written very plainly, and with numbers in words instead of figures. Of course, no telegrapher, and no officer or other person connected with any telegraph company, will transmit any despatches that are not signed with a proper name; but, as an additi -nal precaution, it is suggested that the residence of the writer be also ad lea to the despatch. The reporters for the newspapers, at the various telegraph stations, have it in thoir power largely to aid in these objects; and their co-operation is respectfully * invited, with the assurance that every thing which cnn consistently be done, will be done to promote their convenience in disseminating correct^ and early intelligence respecting the Presidential election.

The stock market, during the week just closed, has experienced considerable fluctuations, and at on# time a perfect panic bad seized upon speculators. The effect was not, however, ao disastrous as it would have J>pen bad prices been more Inflated. The decline produced by this alarm tmong holders of fancies has Bince bo en pattially recovered, and the market has again settled down into the usual quiet state; prices will gradually recover previous points, and dullness and Inactivity again be the order of the day, for perhaps months to come. It is our impression, that the money market will steadily saften. until capital becomes a i complete drug. The demand Is already much less than It was sixty or ninety days sinoe, and it is almost daily decreasing. The steady depredation in prices, for all kinds of property, has alarmed operators of al' binds, and no one ventures upon transactions to nnv extent. The most rcduct d range of prices falls to tempt capitalists to chenge money into property, and there seems to be a rapidly growing disposition among *11 clause* to lock up their capital In Home ?nfe plaoe, And patiently wait the course of event*. To Hum up the whole, in a few words, confidence id completely Pone, and there in no health in commercial affair*. Money in almost useless in (ireat Britain, and its abun. dance hail reduced Its value to the lowest point, and before the lapse of many month* we shall, without doubt, realise the same state of things in this country. It is true that the same sum of money will purchase more cotton, more corn, more produce, and merchandise of any kind, and a greater quantity of stook*, than at any previous period within the past five years ; but that is nothing when there is no market tor these article*, and lho*e who purohase have to hold them ft long tine before an advance can be realised, There appear* to be a lull In all commercial enterprise, and we see nothing in the prospective calculated to create a demand of any importance for our produot*, or to give any stimulus to prloea. The future Is filled with apprehension, and at present there l? nothing but fear and distrust. If this etate of thing* con. tinnea long there will be a very Important reduction In production another year, and It will only be by chceklng the supply of all the nece?*ailei of life that price* will recorcr their former levol. Id former times, reduoed value of the material ??created the consumption, and gave gre*. * to the movements of all articles of trade, hut a.''0*1 * n0* the care bow. Cotton never *ai no low as it i? Pre" sent, and we see no indications of increased conau T" tion. Stock securities of every description never wer?* eo much reduced as at present, and there is no disposition to purchase them for investment. It is a moat unoatural state of affairs, and it is impopsiVle to tell when it will end, and what will be the result. The whole world ia filled with all the elementa Of *realth and prosperity. The raw material for food and raiment never waa more abundant than th's scfcion, and (*tMl there ia no disposition among speculators to operate. There ia no apirit among thia important olais of dealers. and the eourage usually exhibited by them has completely evaporated ; the transactions made are literally from hand to mouth. M anufaeturera hare for a long time bee n heavy losers on their fabrioa, and are likely to be so (or a long time to ceme Produoera of breadstuffs have been but moderately remunerated for their toll, and have not fonnd markets for their aurplua supplies. Cotton planters huve been compelled to make enormous aaeriQoea on that ataple, and many must have beoome involved in difficulties that will take years of high prises to remove. All these things have, however, happened many times before, without producing an iota of ao much distress among all classes?without deranging, to such an extent, the commercial aHair.N of the world?without creating such an utter prostration of public and private credit, suoh a complete destruction of confidence, and suoh a uni" veraal despondency and annihilation of every species of enterprise. It would be difficult to account, aatisfaotorily, for such a condition of afUira, and equally difficult to point out a remedy. We know that the cause does not exist within ourselves, but ia entirely of a foreign nature. There is nothing in our ewn commercial or financial systems giving rise to, or giv. ing strength to such a state of things, and the remedy cannot be found in any changes in these aystems. On the contrary, it is attributed almost entirely t? the stringency of our financial system, that we are not more hopelessly involved in theae difficulties. Merchants, no doubt, at first felt restricted in their operations by the existence of the Independent Treasury Aot; the banks' no doubt, were comptueu 10 contract meir credits by the steady demand oreated by that act for speoie, and this they considered sufficient cause for complaint and opposition , but where would one-half of the mer hunts and the banks have been, at this moment, had t not been for the check placod upon them by tha* act, as imperfoct as it is, and as loosely as its provisions have been administered ? We will venture to say tha1 they would not have been, at this moment, in existence The revulsion which commenoed In England, and spread over the commercial world, would have found them so much expanded in their operations, that they would have found it impossible to have sustained themselves, and we should have had as many bankruptcies to record as in 1837, or as occurred in Europe during the pact year. As it is, we have suffered seriously, and hundreds of houses, still in existence, have been severe suf ferers by the numerous failures abroad; many have been swept of eveiy fraction of their capital, and are strug gling along, day after day. at enormous sacrifices,uncertain whether they will be able to weather the point or not. We must look for a remedy for the difficulties we are now laboring under, somei\ bere else than in any important alterations or modifications in our financial or commercial systems, if we would have permanency in the improvement required. The evils we are suffer" ing from originated abroad, and tbe remedy will have to come irom the same quarter. The bane and the antidote must originate from the same source.

In the return, I a .-it week, a rypographichical error mtde us state that " some" ?f the loan httd been issued to their account, whereas we wrote "none." A good ninny of the papers in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and elsewhere, are in the habit of appropriattng the returns of stock issued?which axc procured exclnsively by the Herald??s well a* oilier paragraphs from our letters. We have no objection to ihrs parn graph pilfering, if it ceased theie; but these depredators also purloin the typographical nnsinkes which sometimes occur. This is unfair. As for the news, l?*t it go; but the errorw of the press belong exclusively to us, and it is ungeaeroiiB and ungentlemanly to take them too. During the past few dityn a large amount of treasury notes have been funded in stock of'47. A few days since, in adverting ro ttie National Monument, we stated that there wi>.s apparently a great waste of lubor ill hauling th< stones on to the found>ition by man-power, instead of in the nsttal wiiv, by horses. The monument committee in New York have w'ltten to tlie committee here, in consequence, stating that the publication has done a great deal of injury to the collections, snd requesting a contradiction or explanation of the Htatements. We regret extremely to learn that our paragraph has affected the contributions to the fund ; but, as we made no comments, and merely stated a fact, it must be conceeded that it is |jthe fact itself, and not our remarks, which caused the Injury. We are glad to learn that a horse is now used on one side of the work, and as soon as the castings for the rail-tracks are finished, horses will be used upon every side; the reason, it is asserted, men were einnloyed, b' ing that the castings were incomplete till now. The work, as we stated in our former letter, 19 I eing proceeded with rapidly, under the superintendence of Mr. William Dougherty; and competent judges assert that so tar it contrasts favorably with any similar undertaking, either in Europe or this country. The stones, nmnv nf ihem un?mh. intr at least ten tun?, are embedded in cement, and lap over one Hnother in such a way as to firmly bind the whole into a solid mass of masoary. This, it will be understood, in merely the foundation of the shaft or column,which is to rise, touring into the air, five hundred feet from the enrih. The solid foundation is to be twenty-seven feet, and is eighty-one feet square at the bottom, gradually diminishing to flfty-eif?ht feet six inches si|uare, which will be the base of the column. The centre of tne column from thence to the top will be open, the wulls being fifteen feet thick. It is the intention of the building committee to purchase a steam-engine of 10 horse power, to raise ihe stone, saw the marble,iVc. There are a prent many delays incidrnt, of course, to the commencement of a woik of the magnitude, of the one in question, more particularly when begun in a litiriy. And we have no doubt that the monument committee will do all in its power to economically carry out the intention of the donors. Still, we shall reel it our duty to watch the progress of this great national work ; and whenever we see anything which we believe to be susceptible of improvement we will franklystate it A disgraceful scene took place in the Orphan's Court, yesterday, between two brothprsin-law, the one a lawyer and the other a doctor. Charges were bandied b?ek and forth, of "cheating," " robbing," iVc., till at length the two brothers-in-law, very much to the astonishment of hid honor, the judge, commenced a bout of fisticuffs. A fat gentleman present, endeavored to quell the batttle, and received, for his pains, n w? II planted " hit" from each of the combatants. Thin satisfied the stout lover of peace, who immediately vanished, and permitted flie belligerents to fight it out at their leisure. After several rounds th? "gentlemen" got tired of their amusement, and the court adjourned. It is a difficult matter to decide wlneh party is most xangune hh to the result in November. Shillington, the famous periodical man, states, however, that ever since the results of the Pennt-vlvania and Ohio elections have become known, Tnylor almanacs and song books have sold a hundred per cent better than Cass literature of the frame stamp. This is conclusive; but of what, we don't pretend to say. Omkoa. Washington, Oct. 27, 18W. An Elopement?Deter Item of lied and Hoard?The Parties Overtaken?An Affecting Srene?The Denouement. Washington is full of unpublished misdoings. There is no author here to " do up," in book shape, the "mysteries and miseries;" and hence there is a Inatui to be supplied. Some j ears ago, a gentleman of this city visited New York. While there, he stepped into a store to buy f hi i ts; and so captivated was he with the fair vendeun, who was a widow, with a sweet young daughter, and whose atheistical views were in consonance with his own, that he made proposals ot marriage, and the knot was tied. They came to Washington; he to be jealous of her admirers, and she to be admired; and so the matter continued foryears. In the mean time, the daughter attained to woman's estate, and was married : but, becoming dissatisfied with her partner, they separated; she giving to hiro his pussjiort. Recently, with more earnestness than ever, the husband stronglv protested against the visits of certain gentlemen; but the ladies scorned the interference in their private affairs, and, like the thirteen American colonies in 177ti, they, in 1H18, declared their independence of the sovereign. Of course, ihey had now to maintain themselves, and depend upon their own resources. The West is the great field for enterprise and honorable livelihood. So, thitherward they directed their course. The wife and her two sons (hoys five and nine years of age), and the divorced daughter, and her infant child (which, she said, is named General Shields, and is an "adopted" son) constituted the emigrating party proper. There was a follower of the camp, however, known as the protector and the " uncle," a word about whom will presently be uttered. The husbard, utmost distracted at the loss of his two boys, made application to a just'ee of the peace of this citv, yesterday, with a view to recover them. Police officers immediately started in pursuit, on horseback, and the husband accom110 > i? .1 111 a. r, i In .. ....

The occupant nf tlie home in which th**y were sheltered whs informed of the object of the visit, and he communicated the fact to the wife of the desert?d spouse. With much fairness. she consented to give him one child nnd retain for herse'f the other. The former she deliver* (I up to an officer, and the latter she s.*nt into (lie woods, to a hiding place. The second officer, who had In en watching the progress of events, disappointed the plan of the fond mother, by seining the living chattel, and twinging it to the spot where stood the inmates of the house, and all the parti s interested, except the daughter and the " nncle." Their absence is thus accounted for. The daughter had been taking a walk in the woods with the " uncle," and while the officer was returning with the child, which his mother e-e^yed to hide, he surprised the promenader*. The "uncle" immediately took to his heals, lea vine the fair one alone, and unprotected. It is said that he has a family in this city, and makes a livelihood by dealing in musical instruments. The party, as I have paid, wee all before the house, minus the daughter and the nnele. Mutual reproaches between the husband and the wife ent-ued. The oldest child whs anxious to go home with his father; the youngest was reluctant, and preferred the mother It was a serious moment. Each parent wished to possess the children, caring nought for the separation of themselves. The spectators were moved to tears, being conversant with the circumstances of the scene. The officer* placed the boys under the care of the father, who returned to the city with them in the evening ? The mother, enraged, declared that she would either obtain them living, or have their bones. The mother and her daughter, and the " adopted" < ieneral Shields, and probably the " uncle." are now on their way to the West, there to be forever separated from the husband, whose rejoicing over me retention of hi?rhi'rtrcn, counterbalances by far the regret of his wife's incontinenrv.
