We refer our readers to our Montreal correspondence, giving an account of the first steps in the organization of a movement that may lead to vast results in those provinces. The tone of the late English journals has convinced the Canadians that the British government will not interfere in the local legislation, nor will the Queen veto the appropriation for the rebellion losses. It is now expected every day that Lord Elgin will return the bill with his signature attached to it. Canada is now in the beginning of a great crisis. SVtatk op Affairs in France?Spasms of thb Soc ialists.?The agitation and effervescence naturally resulting from the conflict of opinion amongst I opposing faction*, in tlie political and philosophical nicnns of the French republic, appear to puzzle some of our wise journalists in these latitudes. In these collisions of adverse sects and parties, certain philosophers, among whom the great mileage reformer is prominent, affect to discern only the omens of coming disaster. They do not seem to understand that this excitement is natural and healthy; that, by and by, the extreme violence of opinion will subside, and a system of peace and order be educed front the chaos. Undoubtedly, the administration of Leuis Napoleon are surrounded by difficulties of considerable magnitude. They came into power at a period when the aspect of affairs was very formidable and threatening. They have, however, thus far sustained themselves with a creditable degree of ability and wisdom. A great deal of the clamor which has been raised against the new administration in France, has pro eoded from the socialists. The leaders and organs of this sect would have us believe that they consume a most influential portion of the French people. If we were to believe the Tribune, socialism is now on the high road to supreme dominion in France. A new correspondent of that journal, M. Jules Lechevalier, writes a flaming account of the triumphant progress of his sect?states that the " army is becoming socialist,"? and throws out sundry oracular hints about some great resolution that is at hand, which will overturn the existing order of things, and establish the principles of socialism for ever, making France a perfect garden of Kden, into which no insinuating serpent will be permitted to intrude. Now, all this is gross exaggeration. The socialists are a most inconsiderable body in France, both in point of numbers and influence. They consist of a few thousands of the lowest class of operatives in Paris and some of the other large cities, numbering altogether, perhaps, four hundred thousand out of the eight millions of voters in France. They are about as important in that republic as the Mormons, or other small sects, who cherish all sorts of vagaries and absurdities, are in the United Stat< a. The gTeat mass of the voters of France are agriculturists, entirely opposed to the tenets of the socialists. The system of socialism, as broached and taught by Fourier, Cabet, (Ireeley, Lechevalier, and others, is a combination of atheism and false philosophy. It presents certain features attractive enough to illiterate and coarse minds ; but it is so full of absurdity, folly, and impiety, that it only excites the abhorrence and pity of those who reverence religion, and rvnlly desire the welfare of their fellow men. The only plan to reform society is to reform the individuals of whom it is corniced, by subjecting each to that salutary process of selfculture and discipline which Christ and his apostles inculcated. Hut the plain, simple, unassuming system of Christianity, to which we owe every thing that is estimable in our civilization, laws. and social arrangements, in not the thing for your cunning fellows, who affect all sort* of eccentricities in order to catch the vulgar and impose upon uneducated minds. These chaps always hare Bonie grand scheme on hand hy which eyeryhody is to he made rich and comfortable, and the world converted into a jmradise. But neither here nor in France can they ever nmount to more than a mall and harmless sect of knaves and silly dreamers. The Nkw Youk Polick andtheronnrrtohtirs GovFH.vMr:"cr Jewels.?The disagreement of the jury in the Criminal Court at Washington, in the case sf Sinister, accused of robbing the Patent Office, has caused a great deal of talk among police circles in this community. Various comments are made upon this singulur result, and particularly upon the fact that the jury stood seven for acquittal and five only for conviction. Kvery body admits that the most incompetent and most incomprehensible mismanagement in the arrest and subsequent proceeding*, lie* *t the foundation of this lame and impotent conclunion. What ought to be done to catch the rest of those rascals, and to pvninh them 1 Ought not the federal government to demand a rigid examination of the New \ ork police, upon their proceedings in this singular mystery 1 Ought not the Mayor of New \ ork to institute an immediate inquiry into this matter, and particularly to ascertain what has become of the chief robber of these jewels?that is Jim Webb, who is the great Mogul of theconcern* It may be remembered that Jirn Webb, Tom Hand, or Shunter, were designated as tbe robbers among the police circlesoftbis metropolis long before either of tbsra was caught. Tbe matter was talked over among the knowing once; but the lirst distinct movement lending to their arreat, wa? made by officer Bowyer, who caught Jim Webb, vre believe, in Jersey City, and brought him over to the Tombs here, where ho was confined for severnl days. Thus far Howyer, the police officer, went to work like a man of common sense; straight ahead, without any mystery, By some mysterious apparatus, however, Webb was taken in hand by other persons, who popped up their heads in various ways, and now it seems he has escaped altogether, for we have not heard of his whereabouts lately What, we ask, has become of Webb 1 How did he get out of the hands of the authorities here, to whom he was delivered up by Howyer 1 The whole affair seems to huve been strangely managed?in its progress, in the escape of Webb, as well as in the bungling trial at Washington, the weakness of the evidence, the disagreement of the jury, and the general mystification which prevails over it nil in reference to ths share of New York in the business. We urge again, and we call again upon the Mayor to institute an inquiry as to the whereabouts of Jint Wehh. We call, also, upon the government at Washington to turn over a new leaf, and to probe the whole of this mysterious business to the bottom. Where is Jem Webb J Can any body tell where Jem Webb is 1 ct'fioi f?opkka devei.opemevr?letter from Mr. Fry.?We find in the Boston Atlas a very naive nnd interesting epistle front Mr. Fry, manager of the lute Opera at the Astor Place Theatre, developing some new and curious facts in the geological formation of the late opera season among the delectable haul ton of Boston. This letter will be found in another part of this day's journal, accom panied by the very naive and appropriate remarks of the editor of the Boston -Atlas. The letter of Mr. Fry and the remarks of the jltlas writer dove tail into each other most beautifully, most exactly and most mathematically, like a streak of black and a streak of white. We begin to sympathise very deeply with Mr. Fry, liotwithstar. i'.ng his hostility to us, but we cannot cry our eyes out. He has been a very unhappy?very unfortunate man in opera ejaculations, beyond all doubt or peradventure. But whose fault is it 1 In this city, according to his own showing, he sunk fourteen thousand dollars in nttemj>ting to furnish the fashionables up town with an elegant, accomplished, and aristocratic Amusement, altogether unapproachable, save by the exclusive few subscribers, and excluding all the rest of the world as outside barbarians. Now, from his recent letter to Boston, we find his losses among the Boston fashionables amount to over four thousand dollars, besides his incurring the personal inconvenience of being held up to the world as delinquent to his engagements, merely because he had not the time to raise a few hard dollars to pay the balance due his chorus singers. What his losses in Philade!j>hia may have been, or his profits, we have not yet seen, from any authentic statement made by Mr. Fry himself. Thus it appears that the New York haut ton cost $14,000?Boston, only ..nlrnn.vn Tliio ia /.ortnin. uimucijiiun, UUAUUM U. ?? vv*.?... ly "too much pork, for a shilling." We really begin to be sorry for Mr. Fry's bad success, deprecating the unhappy advisers who have led him astray; but yet inquiring how conies he to have made all these losses 1 It is generally understood that his receipts per month, during the last opera season, in this city, were considerably more than the receipts for the same space of time at the previous season, under the management of Sanquirico and Patti. Many persons who have analysed Mr. Fry's statements, declare that, with a different system of management, lie might have made both ends meet together at the close of the season, without loss to himself or to his friends. These critics assert that his troupe was too numerous for economical service; his orchestra also was toe numerous, and his chorus singers wore in the. same category. They also say that, in fact, with a good working opera troupe, throughout all the departments, he might have carried on the concern last season at one-third of the expense, instead of being plunged into the wasteful expenditure which such unnecessary crowds ol singers, musicians, and other artists caused him. Tc obviate the results of this bad method in his ma nagement, he attempted to get up "extra nights,"ii order that he might meet these extra and unneces sary expenses. But here was the great enor whicl he committed, in supposing that the respectabb society of New York, which considers itself a: good as the exclusives, or flash portion, would pa tronize gny opera, under such distinctions ai subscription nights and extra nights estahlishec between different orders of society. This was one of the groat, the fundamental errors of hit wholemanagement, which led to all his difficulties and enused all his contrt-tempt between himself his artists, the public, nnd the independent press. We understand that Mr. Fry has already ventur ed to re-engage the theatre for the next season for the same purposes. This is a bold act. Bui perhaps he is right, if the experience of the past has taught him how to correct his steps for the future. It is also said that Mr. Max Maretzek will be sent out the coming summer to Europe, for the purpose of engaging fresh artists in the Old World. We doubt much the policy of this movement. There are already artists enough, and in great abundance, in this city, of the first rank in their profession; nnd if any recruits should be brought across the Atlantic on the approaching senson, there will be an attempt to get up a rival Italian Opera, at some other theatre in the city. We hope Mr. Fry, if he has not gathered dollars by his past ex|>erience as a manager of Italian Opera, has yet, however, mannged to pick up a little wis dom to guide his career for the future. We art sorry for his misfortunes, and hope lis will mend What can we do for himl Tkruiiuj? Uproar about thr Spoils?Rhmovam am) AppoiNTMErrrs.?Certain portions of the news paper pre hp, principally of the partisan class, are rapidly running into a tremendous excitement about removals and new appointments now taking place, under the auspices of General Taylor's cabinet. The office holders are not more excited than the office beggars. The first are terribly reluctant to give up the spoils of the kitchen?the latter are furiously hungry to stay their stomachs, after a twenty ysars' abstinence. It is quite amusing to nee the tears of the office holders, which they are shedding in all directions, at relinquishing the spoils, and the groans of the office beggars, at the dilatory progress of the cabinet in ousting the present incumbents. Yet in the midst of this general scramble and excitement between the out-going and the in-coining politicians, there are now and then particular cases which deserve special notice. Mr. Stubbs, who has long been the chief clerk in the State Department, under various administrations, has been at last removed. He has published a very moderate and pathetic statement of bis removal, in one of the Washington pa)?crB. So far the cabinet have executed nothing beyond their duty in the removals hitherto; but we rather think Mr. Clayton must have been too much influenced by external pressure. or he would not have thrown out of emnlnv ment, at his advanced age, so worthy a man a* Mr. .Stubbs, who, for twenty year*, has given satisfaction to all parties. It seems that Mr. Webster insisted, for some personal reasons, upon his removal; and perhaps Mr. Clayton may not have been able to resist so resolute and determined a man as Mr. Webster, especially considering the importanoe of his situation and the value of hisservioea in the Henate. But we think Mr. Clayton and General Taylor should give some situation to Mr. .Stubbs in seine other department, or see if something could not be d<me for him elsewhere. Among all the removals thus far ninde by the cabinet, this is the only one which seems to call for decided regret, and we really hope that General Tsyior will do something for poor Stubbs, a worthy man, and now in the rale of years, and no longer capable of commaaciiig life anew. Thia removal from the State Department ought to gratify the vengeance of Mr. Webster sufficiently, and we have no doubt that distinguished Senator will now feel as comfortable after this event as he did after the morning when lie made that famous sj>eech in Massachusetts, in which he announced the nomination of a certain famous old hero "as a nomination not fit to be made." From Sr. Cuoix.?We learn from Captain Van Gilder, who arrived yesterday, from St. Croix, that there had been little or no rain for the last six months, and that the crops have suffered much in consequence. See ship news for marine matters. City Intelligence. Tub WrATHKR.?Yesterday was indeed a spring da and the genial rays of the hud seemed to throw a healthful Influence over all nature. For several day previous old winter sent his chilling blast over the city, and spring seemed to have taken her flight. The fitful gusts of sn.w, and the cold north wind, with the biting frost, gave a sudden check to vegetation, and caused to be enwrapped In heavy furs the fairy forms that are wont in springtime to perambulate the sunny side of Broadway. But with yesterday the welcome truant spring returned, and again the hoary robes of winter disappeared. The fair daughters of Uotham appeared in all their gay and lovely attire; the park* and places were filled with children, sporting upon the half-senred grass, but a few days since so green and flourishing During the whole day, not a cloud intervened to hide the brightness of the god of the morning, and his warming influence continued until the western horizon hid his face. The evening was cool, but without an indication of a return to the late unpleasant weather. Anniyerhart or thz Orsha* Asyi.cm Society.?The forty-third anniversary celebration of the New York Orphan Asylum Society cume off yesterday, at the Apollo Saloon, the proceedings of which were attondo I with considerable interest. The spacious saloon was tilled with ladles, who seemed to bo foremost in the charitable work of making happy the fathorless children under the supervision of the society. The children, one hundred and thirty in number, occupied an elevated stage at the rear end of the suloon, and being neatly dressed, were joyous and happy. The corcinonicH were opened by reading a portion of Scripture, after which Rev. Weston read the annual report of the Society. The expemlitureof the Society for the last your amounted to $7,387 48, leaving $1,400 unpaid. Mr. Weston spoke at length upon the resignation of Mrs. Alexunder Hamilton, for many years the first directress of the institution, aniLwho with untiring leal watched over Its interest with unabated devotion. The exercises of tho children in the various branches of education was then gnno through with, many of whom displayed a talent whieh, if cultivated under the same salutary intluonco under which they have begun, will make them ornaments to the ago iu which they live. After the closing of the oeremonies. a largo amount of money, as donations, was handed iu, for which the ladies in eharge smiled their hearty thanks. Many of the children under this society aro tho orphans of those who, seeking a homo among strangers, have fiiUcn victims to doath, and the cherished objocts of their lives have found an usyluni where they may be properly cared for, and be fitted for the business of future life. Departure or Moses (J. Leonard, F.sh., eor California.?A large number of the friends ot Moses G. Leonard. Km)., lute Alms House Commissioner, accompanied him as fur as Sandy Hook yesterday, on the way to California. Tho steamboat Stranger was chartered for the special purpose, and. at ono o'clock P.M., they started from Piur No. 1 North River. Among those who accompanied Mr. L., were several members of tho Common Council, who, from their daily efflc'nl Intercourse with that gentleman, hud formed for him a lasting friendship anil esteem. Tho host feeling pervaded tho whole ponipnny. and it was not until the Crescent City stopped her engine for tho Stranger to approach and put Mr. Leonard on board, that tho feelings which overpower the strong man burst forth, and though the loud huzzas rent the air, many friends wept that their social circle should lose one who had contributed so much to their pleasures and enjoyments, in tho management of the department over which he had control he displayed great business tact, and especially among the orphan children, at Randall's Island, he was looked upon as a friend?father, lie goes from our midst without an enemy, and the earnest and involuntary desire of every one is that prosperity may be his portion. Ki/nds in the Cocrt or Chanceet.?We understand that Judge Edmonds attempted, last year, to procure a full statement of the funds deposited in the Court of Chancery, hut was, in a measure, prcTcntod, by the fact that they were under tlio control of tho Clerk of the Court of Appeals, in Albany. But now that the law lias ce-transferrcd tho funds to this city, and put them into the hands of theCity Chamberlain,the Judge has again resumed that task, and has ordered a full statement of those deposits made out, which will probably be published as soon as it shall be completed. Married, and Gone to California.?Quito an excitement was created in the fashionablo circles yesterday, especially amoDg.st the yonng inen. in consequence of the appcaranee, in the ludies cabin of the Crescent City, of a beautiful young lady, bound for the golden land. She leaned upon the arm of a young man, who has for soToral years resided in that country, but who recently returned, with some $70,000 of the glittorlng gold, to claim the object of his early love. The father of the fair one accompanied them to the steamer, and, as the time drew near to take a long farewell, he imprintod a kiss upon her lips, and prayed a father's blessing might attend his children on their journey. The happy bridegroom bade again a farewell to the homo of his youth, and tho twain will cast their lots on the hill-lodged shore* of the broad Pacific Tho father of tho brido is ' a distinguished minister of the gospel, who will trust to that 1'roTidenco which has always protected him, to guide her safely to her far-off home among strangers, 1 and in a strange land. May long life and uninterrupted happiness uttcud them. 1 Mad Doq.?A mad dog was killed yesterday afternoon in Centre street, hy pouring airohoi down his throat. 3 By the wny, the season is approaching when the dog war 9 will be roriTed. and the appraranco of this one will be the call to arms < f the tliousand-and-ten canine nnnlbilators, who. during the Inst summer, made such haroo 9 among the curs uld it not be well for tho Common i Council to hare Incorporated in the now charter a special net for the establishment of a standing army, who i might nt any time be callnl out to quell an insurree, tion of the dogs, the Major-General of which could also superintend the cleaning of tho streets hy contract ? 1 Firp.ii.?A flro broke out on Monday evening, in the , house at the corner of 12th streot and Oth avenue, which was put out with trifling damage A flro broke out on Monday uiglit, in a wood house, in tiio roar of No. 174 Seventh street, which was oxtiiiguhlicd with little damage. A lire broke out about go/en t'olock ' yesterday morning, 1h the largo four story store t No. Oil Liberty street, which did considerable damage before the flames were subdued. The flro originated in the second story, which was occupied by Charles 1 Muller as a looking-glass factory. The entire stock of the second story was destroyed, and a quantity of stock on the 3d floor was severely injured. The damage it probably $3,000, which was fully insured. The first floor and baaementi*re occupied by Alfrod North, dry goods dealer, whose stock was completely saturated with water The damage it supposed to be $10,000, which was fully insured. The building, which is owned by ( holies Miuturn,'was damaged to the amount of $1,600, which was also Insured. The Are was caused by the upsetting of a spirit gas lamp, used for heutiug glue; and so rapid (were the flames that before the alurra could be given the whole room was on tire, but chiefly confined to that part of tllo house by the prompt action of the firemen, who wcro almost Immediately on the spot. A fire broke out about a quarter past nine o'cl? ck, last night. In the second story of the building, No. y0 William street,occupied by tlroas, Oreely St Co., as a gimp and fringe store, which was extinguished before material damage had been sustained. S Srmoc* Accirv.ar.?A girl named Margaret Levy, employed as a servant iu the family of Mrs. Murray, at the corner of Broadway and Bleecker street, was on Monday afternoon knocked down in the street, opposite the house where she was employed, by the milk l wagon of Mr. Mills, and so seriously hurt that her life is.despaired of It was the result of accident, and the owner of the wagon offered everything in liis p?wer to relieve the sufferer. THE RSPORT op THK COMMISSIONER OK JVRORS. Oppicr op tiik Commissioner op Joaons, > April 5, 1S4U. ) ItonmalU the Poor J of Suptrriiorn, of tit city and county of ,V'?' York :? Herewith is an account of receipts and expenditure! at this office for the last year. The whole amount received is $3,136 70; the amount expended, including salary of commissioner, is $2,420 22 ; leaving an ex inripM.. 0?ru.|I.UMH, ?l Jll UU U?. thin amount. $500 ha* bcsn paid into the city treasury, through the < hainbcrlain. a* per hi* receipt tiled in the Comptroller's office,and the sum of >200 34 remain* in my hand*. My first ohjcct, on assuming the duties of this office, was to lighten the burden of the jury duty heretofore borne l>y those persons habitually summoned to perform this duty. It had previously reached to about three to five terms per annum for each individual summoned. The number formerly returned by the assessors was about five thousand, of whom less than two thousand were found liable. The finount paid to the assessor* for making these retnrns was $000 per annum I instituted a full canvass of the city, and obtained twenty-four thousand names, at n cost of $743. As directed by law, notice was given throngh the newspapers employed by the Corporation, tor exempts to register themselves at this office. This, in s great measure, they n< glected to do. Kvery effort was made t<? obvlata tills difficulty by obtaining returns from the uniformed militia, fire companion, the association of exempt firemen, kr. Still many exemptions remained unrecorded, and could not be obtained until, on being drawn and summoned, the persons claiming them appeared at till* office and made their exemption known. In this way. the large list furnished is brooming gradually el eared of exempts; and at the close of the jury year, the 31st of July next, there will remain a clear list of about ten or twelve tlionsand available names a number large enough to supply alt our courts for one year, calling ou each individual but once in tbat period. During the year now pending from August 1*43 W A 111, uaf IXJ'l >w, I.?u I K. t. eta* a juror mors than onco, and this will be the *ettled xyHtem hereafter. The rhief difficulty In the f)r*t year'* operation of the new ejmtem hint been that, of the panel* summoned, compurutlrely few pnrxon* bate appeared Thin la owing to the number of exempt! yet remaining on the ll*t. end will not oxixt after the l?t of Auguet next In the meantime the difficulty may be wholly obviated by Incrradng the number ordered by tlin court* on laeh panel, which nmy be carried te any extent, ax the xnpply in the Jury l>nx cannot be exhausted by the moet liberal draft* 1'hi* oourxe l? new adopt< d by the xerural court* 'I booth the expense of utartlng a new xyxtrm ha* been greater for the flr?t year lha* It will be her*after, [ it ha* not been greater, Indeed Ice*, than that of the limited and in?dUeieut ?y*tom of former year*. My at tentiea ku not b?en mlnlj directed to making it ? source of revenue, at least for the first ynor; but to lightening the burden of jury duty upon oar citizens Nevertheless, it hss yielded to the oity treasury the Hum of $500 over sud above its expenses; and it is believed that no revenue has ever heretofore been derived from this source. Hereafter, there is reason to expect that the inooine from this source will be much greater?though revenue, it is considered, should not be a primary object in this connection. It will bo perceived that the auui of $206 54 is retained in the hands of the commissioner. I intend, unless otherwise directed by the hoard of Supervisors, to retain this sum. together with the collections to be made during the present month, to meet the expenses of making the new jury list, to be eommenced on the first of next month. Last year 1 was nnder advances for this purpose to an amount equal to that accruing during the first five months or the year, bosides receiving nothing as salary for that period. As the weight of the expenditure takos place in the first quarter, when the jury list is under preparation; and as. during that time, there is no leisure to make collections. I trust the hoard of Supervisors will acquiesce in this arrangement. The expense of making the next list will be much less than for the last. Still, every year, owing to removals and accession* to our population, this expenditure must be renewed. Nor can it bo prevented by making any considerable use of the oity directory; as the law requires that the jury list shell bo finished and deposited with the county olerk at about the date at which the city directory is annually published. I have at my command voucher* for all the expend1tures charged, and a complete list of all persons fined, with the amounts annexed?all of which are at thesorvlcoofyour honorable Bond.

To all of which was added Kate's consent to be tried by the Court of Special Sessions, in the words following, to wit :? " 1 hereby waive a trial by jury on this complaint, and demand a trial by the Court of Special Sessions." Tills having been in due form complained of. balled, and so forth, Miss Hastings appeared to take the trial which she had " demanded" before the three judges, at the Special Sessions. It had been whispered about that this morning would be the time when the law would avenge itself on its violator, and hence the court room wus tilled with spectators, who looked as if they were just about to enjoy the denouement of some capital plot. Scores of eyes were turned towards the centre door, as if they sought some expected object. Sundry remarks were made upon the affair which caused all this stir. ' \\ hat d'ye think the court will do'" said ono elderly gent, witli a jolly face, and ahumorsomo twinkle of the eye. to a companion ou the floor. " What d'ye think? will they send her up?" ' No, 1 think not. The grand jury would not find a bill, and egad I like 'eni for It. This, d'ye see, will soften the matter down, or I'm no judgo of such matters. You seo, the traublo?Ah, there she comes! That's her with the brown bonnet!" Whllo all around the room might be heard suppressed exclamations? " There's the gall!" " Kate Hastings is a commln'!" ' Aint sho a screamer ?" About half a dosen eye-glasses wero immediately brought into use, a somewhat larger number of spectacles were adjusted. Short persons stood up. bocauso they could uot see over tho heads of their taller neighbors ; and then the tall oues stood up, because they were anxious to get u better viow?und, so tho wholo assembly were at ouce brought to their feci ; and numbers ran up into the gallery, preferring a bird's eye view, to being jostled in a crowd. In fact, so much interest has not. for a length of time, been excited in tho court of Special Sessions, as was evinced on this occa Kion. Kate came forward, attended by her counsel, A. A. Phillips. Esq. ft lie had oa a splendid fawn-colored silk dress, and wore a rich broche shawl, with a pearl colored straw hat. She had ubout her person a profusion of jewelry, chains, watch, bracelets, buckles, pencil bead, watch-key, and other like articles of ornament. Shu ramc in with a smart, businoss-liko air, and seemed to court despatch. Kap, rap, rap. "Officers will preserve order," gays a voice. " Sit down, gentleman ! Gentlemen must be seated!" says the officers. Now, Mr. Phillips, what is the application you have to maku ? Mr. Phillips here camo forward, and said, that bis client would plead guilty to the charge of assault and battery ; but, he wished to call the attention of the court to the indignity which led to the assault, for which purpose he had prepared an affidavit in mitigation. which he would present to the court. This matter had been before tho grand jury, for their action, they, by a yotu, had laid the matter over, a sufficient number of the grand inquest not having voted to find a bill against the defendant. Miss Hastings had never attempted to deny that sho committed thu assault upon Mr. Judson. Shu was willing to meet the responsibility she had Incurred by her act; but not being willing to put the county to expense, had concluded to pload guilty, lie hero presented the following " affidavit in mitigation." N. Y. SrrriAi. Sessions. > Kalr Jlatlings odt. Tho I'roplf J City and County of Sow York, sm:? f at limine Hastings, the above named defendant, being duly sworn, deposes and says, that, in a paper called Nod huvtline'? Own, of a recent date, and prior to the assault complained of in this case, tho following scurrilous attack was published of and concerning this deponent, as follows : ? [Here was inserted the obnoxious article referred to above ] That the complainant in this case, Edward Z. C. Judson, is notoriously the editor of tho said paper, and thnt he has for a considerable period published similar gross attacks upon deponent, all of which have been calculated to and did arouse the anger of this dop< nent against him. Deponent further says, that the documents marked A and B, which are hereto annexed, [These letters contain expressions too gross and indecent t( meet the public gaze in a newspaper, and hence we cannot givo them. They were mere blackguard missives couched in the plainest and most indocont terms ] were sent to this deponent, as doponont vcmy ofliCTP? ny me sbki r.. juuwm, an mn name Is subscribed to the < 110 marked A ; and portions of the one markrd B. aro similar to the writing of the one to which his nnmo is signed. Deponent further says, that the chastisement she indicted upon the said Judson was induced solely by these attacks upon her, and by no other cause. Deponent further says, that sho is informed and verily believes the lact to to bo. that this rase has been presented to the Grand .lury, as appears by an endorsement upon the back (t the comIilaints ; and as deponent is informed and believes, n consequence of there not being a sufficient number of vote* to find a bill against this deponent; and this deponent further saith. that it has not been her intention to deny that she inflicted personal chastisement upon the said Judson.and as the Grand .lury are unable to pronounce upon her guilt, she freely admits chastising him. thus saving the county the expense of a trial, under the full impression ond belief that the said Judson fully merited oven severer punishment than he has received at her hands, in con sequence of these scurrilous attacks upon this deponent. CATHARINE HASTINGS. Sworn before me this 17th day of April. HU0. HENRY VANDERVOORT, Clerk The Rkcordkr said the court had perused the papor* in the case, and had come to the conclusion to impose a fine of six cents on Miss Hastings, aud ho trusted she would never attack this mau again. When the sentence hnd been pronounced, Kate very deliberately opened an elegant purse which she held in her hand, and was about to pay the sixpence down at once, but her counsel interposed, saying to her that the amount was merely nominal, and that sno might leave it to him to arrange. When the affair was ended, voices were beard all round the room, expressing approbation at the decision of the court. As the prisoner was about leaving tho court, she remarked, audibly, that if Judsou did not leave her alone in future, if she got at him again, he would not be able to come to court to make a complaint.

Many r??' eons drop in apponlexy, and, although immediately Mod, die. Many are Mod and recover; many are not Med and reeorer. Those who resort to bleeding are sure to be finally carried off by this complaint: tbose wlio resort to Urendreth Pills are by no m< ens so likoly of a return ; and, if thoy are faithfully used, will in all probability become as healthy as they oror wi re. This disease, remember, is cansod by the sediment or Imparity of the blook fettling upon tho lining of the blood i .-els, end mcro especially of the bloed-vessels of the braim This pn duces a swelling of the veins, and consequently a pressure upon tlic brsin. Tho only way of onre, therefore, is by evacuating the impurities from the Mood, and that can be dono by a free use of llraiidroth's Pills.

At last the whole system is puritie'l anil tho health placed upon so solid a basis as net soon tj be shaken hy disease of any kind. This is all done by purely vegetable medicine.
