TH NO. 5475. EURO P E. ARRIVAL OP THE STEAMSHIP NIAGARA IT HALIFAX, WITH ONE WEEK'S LATER NEWS, KECK1VED BY Overlaid Express, to St. John, N. B., AND THENCE TELEGRAPHICALLY TO THE HERALD. IMPORTANT INTELLIGENCE. The French Protest to Russian Interference in Hungary. THE CRISIS IN ITALY. Concentration of French, Austrian, Neapolitan, and Spanish Troops before R6me, STATE OF THE MARKETS. die. dec. die. The steamer Niagara, Capt. Ryrie, arrived at Halifax at three o'clock on Thursday morning, and will be due in New York this evening. She brings X2,000 in specie, and sixty-three passengers. Our express made the run to Digby Cut, 146 miles, in eight hours and fifteen minutes. The Cambria was spoken off Cape Clear on the 20ih, and the Hibernia in lat. 46.52, Ion. 46. The Europa arrived at Liverpool on Monday, making the run in twelve days from New York. The Hermann arrived at Southampton on the 17th, front Bremer, with 130 first and second class pussengers for New York. She was advertised to leave on Sunday morning. In commercial affairs, there is no material amendment in prospect. Money continued plentiful Consols, for money, opened on Monday at 90!, and steadiiy advanced to 91{?the closing price on Friduy evening. French three per cents closed on Wednesday evening at 58 francs 80 centimes; Five per cents 88 francs 95 centimes. Wednesday being Ascension day, the bourse was closed. Some operations took place in 5 per cents at 89 francs 50 centimes. Pennsylvania State stock was sold in London on the 16th, at 80, which was the only American stock noticed in the papers. The chief demand for American securities is on German uccount. . From the manufacturing districts generally, complaint is made that the goods sent away have little or no profit. , The flour and corn markets have slightly improved. The depressing effect of the news brought by the Europa, of large receipts of cotton at American ports, seemed just to have been neutralized by intelligence conveyed by the same steamer of severe frosts at the South and West. The Havre cotton market has been more animated since the elections, and prices are well sustained. The French Republic. . The elections in France, on the 13tli, passed off -without a single violation of good order. No def.. ...? L _ C 1 mine opinion can yei ui* luriucu us iu me iciuuvc success of parties. No doubt is entertained bu there is a large majority in favor of peace and order. The French expedition to reinstate the Pope", had not effected an entrance into Rome at the last advices. The Neapolitan army has not been more successful, having been defeated in an attack on the 5th inst. The closing meetings of the National Assembly were taken up by discussions on the Italian question, in which the ministry finally obtained a majority of 38. It would seem from the statements made on the subject, that M. Odilon B-irrot did not give any instructions to Gen. Oudinot, recommending the occupation of Rome at all, and it had been determined that the expedition should proceed to Civita Vecchia, and there remain as a moral check on the advance of the Neapolitans and Austrians, and only to march onward in case of ubsolute necessity. The ministry were not, however, unanimous in this, and it is feared that Gen. Uudinot was influenced in his conduct by the advice of a certain faction, of which M. de Faloni is the head. On Saturday, in reply to an attack by M. Flocon, it was stated that as soon as the government heard that the Russians were to interfere in Germany, they wrote at once to London, St. Petersburg, Berlin, and Vienna. They considered it a circumstance which must be deplored. They would endeavor to annul it by diplomatic means; if they should fail, the government would then apply to the National Assembly for its advice and countenance. In consequence of a vote of censure, by the Assembly, M. Leon Fauches, Minister of the Interior, resigned his portfolio into the hands of the President ; and it is said that several others of the present ministry will resign as soon as they can do so without embarrassing the President. According to the returns received up to midnight on Thursday, they show returns of fifteen eocialist candidates; according to andther statement, i would appear that nine socialists and nineteen moderates had been elected. The candidates arc known to have obtained a majority of votes. In Patip, we notice the names of Lucien Murat, Ledru Kollin, Victor Hugo, Odtllon Barrot, Cavaignuc, Pierre Leroux, etc. Tl.'J Ccmtt'luiiu-niiii slates that the election of 5J departments, known on Thutsday night, gave the following result:?133 Representatives of which 2fM are moderates, democrats or socialists end 71 friends of the constitution. The War In Ilnngnry Assumed no new feature. The fighting goes 011 1 nri miuingly, and the fortunes ol ill" Hungarians are reported to ire in the ascendant. They ure said to be within a f w days' march of Vienna, to which point the Russians are pressing forward as rapidly as possible. It is thought that the strong protest of France, seconded, probably, by England, may have the effect to check the advance of the Russians. The Danish War. It is stated that the ]>uiiish question is all but settled. The only positive facts are, that the 1 >ancs have suffered another defeat, and that Lord i'ulnteMon has intimated that the attention of the British government is still directed to that quarter, v ith n view to eflect a restoration of peace. The Daily Nnr? asserts that Denmark lias accepted the propositions made by I ami I'aluierston; but what these propositions ure, doe not appear. Slrtljr. Sicily is again in a state of insurrection* fur the hundredth time. A fresh attempt wna l>< inp mad i.t Palermo to qyt up an armed resistani th Nenpolibut it up,warn of <!? < Affair* In (itrminy. The plot gradually reveals itself in ?iermany. The sovereigns have evidently combined for the E NE" overthrow of the libcralists. There had been a formidable disturbance at Dusseldorf, on the Rhine; but it has been suppressed. At Frankfort the riot was becoming more revolutionary and anarchical every day. All the moderate men have, in consequence, left it. Prussia has followed the lead of Austria, and withdrawn her delegates from Frankfort. The other principal powers will now doubtless do the same. The Grand Duke of Baden has been obliged to fly from his capital; whilst in Elberfeldt, Dusseldorf, Ilagen, Oseljun, and in all the market towns in Rhenish Prussia, the insurgents have erected barricades, and make the constitution a pretence for tumult. At Berlin, a sort of Congress has assembled, and Baron Gagern's scheme of a German federal State has been revived, a double confederation to be the basis. Austria consents to a closer connection with Germany. The German States and Austria are never to go to war. They are to form a defensive alliunce ; and a foreign war may be carried on by either power, if"this power do not succeed in proving to the other that its interests are mutually involved in the dispute. The Emperor of Austriu and the King of Prussia, as hereditary chiefs of the new German federal State, are to appoint commissioners, who are to act and advise, as the executive power of the two governments. The scheme has now received the attention of Europv, but its realization depends upon many contingencies. Highly Important from Italy. The Austrians entered the Papal States on the north, and Marshal Winpain threatens with lire and sword all those who resist him. In the south, the Neapolitans were advancing with the same object, but met the vanguard of the Romuns at Albano, and defeated them. The Neapolitans, consisting of a body of 20,000 troops, after a short conflict, threw away their arms and fled. The Romans had taken 50 prisoners and two pieces oi artillery, with which they entered Rome on the evening of the Gtli inst. A private letter from Rome of the 8th inst. announces the landing of the .Spaniards at Fin Minsino. On the previous day a Roman division, commanded by K ocelli and Mezzacapo, is said to have entered the Abruzzi. Garribaldi is believed to be armed at another point?the frontiers are ready to support that movement. The Neapolitans are lortifying Valletti. Pius IX., on hearing of the resistance of the Romans, is said to have declared thaf he would not return to Rome at such a price, and to have sent a message in consequence, to the King of Naples, and to General Oudinot, to induce thein to retire. In the meantime, Oudinot has been reinforced by many thousand troops, and he has proba'ly now u well-appointed army of 20,000 under his command; but the enthusiasm of the Romans is raised to the highest pitch, und if a single-handed or combined attempt to bombard and take Rome by storm could be made, the defence ol the city, by means of barricades, and hv the coursers nf the people, will be so well maintained that the Austrians are by no means certain of success. All accounts concur that it will be impossible to restore the temporal power of the papacy, in any form. \Ve have before us mo6t frightful details of the priests being dragged forth from their hiding places by the ponulace, nnd put to death; their bodies have been hacked into the smallest pieces, then cast into the Tiber. The combined jxnvers of Europe will scarcely lie able even to set up his Holiness ngain on the throne of the Vatican. The tide of feeling has overflowed him, and the Romans seem now bent on,excluding sacerdotul and political power forever. Intelligence by telegraph has been received from General Oudinot, to the 13th inst., at which time there was a strong probability that the French troops would be permitted to enter Rome without opposition. In the General's dispatch, he says :? " Serious propositions of submission are made to me? already the anchors of safety to the Romans, the nine hundred French prisoners at Home, were accompanied to I'uio with all possible demonstrations of joy." A letter of the Timet announces the landing at the Fin Minsino, of a .Spanish force, which was marching toward home. The Austrians had not entered Bologna at the date of the last accounts, but they had possession of some ot the gutes, and the surrender was hourly exjiected. The Bolognese defended themselves nobly. They had offered to acknowledge the Pope, on condition that he would consent to dismiss all the priests of his government; but the Austrian commander replied that subjects could not be permitted to dictate conditions to their sovereigns.? At Venice, Radetzki has gone further than mis.? The Venetians asked for an armistice, in order that they might obtain the mediation of France and England, to which they had applied. He answered, that the Emperor, his master, would never permit a foreign |>ower to interfere between him and his rebellious subjects. The Austrians wera repulsed on the 4th inst. in an assault, and the Venetian account stutes that they made a rally and took 800 prisoners, which needs confirmation. Tuscany and Modrna. Are more or less disturbed by these hostile proceedings. At Leghorn and Florence all is fighting and confusion. The Tuscan troops having been supported by the Austrians, entered Modenu on the llili inst. Interesting from Russia. The Emperor reached St. Petersburg, from Moscow, on the 1st inst. There hud already marched into Gallicia. en route for Hungary, to the assistance of the Austrians, 120,000 Russians, with 350 cannon, and 2,700 cavalry. Gen. Bom is well prepared to give them a warm reception on the Transylvania, and there must be warm work before it is over. Geergey bus posted about notices that whoever refuses to take bank notes shall be hanged. Ireland Continues quiet and miserable as ever. . England. No other action has been had in the House of LordB in relation to the repeal of the Navigation Laws. The Lords were to go into committee on the bill on Monday. Notice has been given bv Lord Stanley and others", of amendments to be offered, and it is considered quite possible that ministers may be beaten in committee, and the bill be so mangled as to induce its authors to resign and retire from office. The Canadian Question In Parliament. Details of the outbreak in Canada were laid before Parliament on the 15th, which elicited some discussion of no importance, beyond the fact that the government evinced a determination to sustain Lord Elgin. Eurl Grey, in alluding to Lord Elgin's dispatch, said it would show that lie acted throughout with his accustomed judgmeftt, moderation and good sense, and that he was fully prepared to justify and take the responsibility of any step of Lord Elgin. No formal discussion of Canadian affairs, j until uftcr the receipt of later intelligence, which ! reached Liverpool, probably, on the 20th, in the 1 Cambria. Markets. Liverpool Freights, Mny 19, 1819. Luting the past week, rates have been fully supported, and higher rates paid in several i-stances. With a fresh westerly wind, arrivals are becoming numerous, and some decline mny probably be expected. Passengers ure less abundant, and some of the ships had been filled with difficulty at reduced rates. Liverpool Markets, May 19, 1RK1.

Theatrical and Musical, Bowirt Theatre.?Mr. Ryder's benefit last evening, was well attended; and the performances?which consisted of "Julius Caesar" and the farce of "Taking the Pledge"?were received Tery favorably. From the long experience Mr. Ryder has had in Shaksperlan characters, he is as perfect in them as possible; his performance of them is always marked by groat judgment and discrimination; his elocution !b excellent, and in a knowledge of what is technically termed "stage business," Mr. Ryder cannot be excelled. He has made many friends during his engagement at the Bowery, and we trust that we shall at Borne future time have the pleasure of seeing him there again. As for last night's performances, Mr. UnmbUn. us Brutus, played with his usual excellence, and the beneficiary, as < ufsius. did hie part most acceptably to the audience. Cillbert, as Marc Antony, Bass, as Casea, MeVurlimd. ns Oetavius Cirsar. all assisted to make the play go off with the (r I at it did; whilst Mrs. Jordan and Miss Weinyss, as Caiphurnia and l'oroia, deferred the great applause bestowed on them. Tonight, quite a young dramatic artist offers his name for his first benefit?we mean Master Thomas iiamblin ?who has of lato so admirably proved his right to bo accounted one of the prifession. by his performances in ' King John" and " William Tell " AVe arc sure ho will have a full house, and we arc equally sure he will perfoim as well ns he has every night of his appearance. " AVilllam Tell" is the piece selected, and it will ho ployed with the same splendid castas before. Mrs. Shaw, Mr. Iiamblin. Mr. llydor, (his last appearance.) Gilbert. Bass, &c., all sustaining parts in it. The farce of " Uncle John" will conclude tlio entertainments. Broadway Theatre ?In consequence of the sudden indisposition of Mr. A'acbe, the new farce of the " Barber Bravo" was not performed; the " Witch of Windermere" having been substituted in its stead. The various characters were very creditably filled. " Eoletta, or the Enchanted Bell," with its every varying scenes and endless train of splendor, followed, and was received with much applause. National Theatre.?Barney Williams had an excellent house at his benefit, last evening; and. as the witty, blundering diplomat, by accident Sir Patrick O'Plenipo, he played with all that liveliness and tact which always distinguish his performances, lie was much applauded, and deservedly so. Mrs. J. R. Scott played the part of Lady Kmily. We believe it was but her second or third appearance on the stnge. Mrs. Scott, after soma more practice, will acquire more confidence in herself, we dare fay; ut present, she spruks altogether too low. She possesses a handsome face and figure, and, as far as personal appearance goes, has everything on her side. u'? irnut not. finilt notif*in<r i\1p. pRpdfiv'd nnrformnnfte of the old diplomat, Count Morenos; It was a capital piece of acting; as also was Miss Mestuyer's Lady Isabella Mr. Tilton. as Prince Kodolph, did not dress with bis usual good taste, The remainder of the entertainments, which were very varied, passed olf very satisfactorily. To-night. Harney Williams concludes bis engagement, and a tine bill is presented on the oc- i cat-ion:?"Ireland as It Is," "Kate Kearney," and i "Cresting the Line." in the two first. Williams will i appear, Burtcx's Theatre.?Mr. Logan took his benefit last I evening The house was well attended. The favorite comedy of "Simpson it Co." was the play, which was performed in fine style, the principal character being sustained by the author of" C hloroform." Mrs. Simpson was admirably represented by Miss Chapman, and Mr and Mrs. Bromley by Mr. and Mrs. Brougham. " Chloroform, or New 1 ork One Hundred Years Hence," was the interlude. If every uuthoc were so fortunate as Mr. Logan has been in this instance, then Indued literary attainments would be a profitable possession. Both he aDd his production havo been eminently and deservedly successful. Wa are rejoiced at this, because be is a man ol talent, and a very superior aciur. The other entertainments were received with the most Mattering applause. This evening Mr. George Loder will take his benefit, when a rare intellectual treat will be nrescntcd to the patrons oi this well-conducted establishment. Musical. Novkltv.?A few days ago we hinted to our 1 readers that the proprietors of Castle Garden hud resolved to oiler to the citizens of New York a series of summer fetes, on a scale of grandeur and liberality far exceeding an) thing of the kind before attempted In this city. We are now informed that Messrs. Corbyn and Martini, their agents, have already secured a whole host of musical talent, ami are still busy in n?- \ goliating with other eminent artists, so as to ensure a constant and rapid succession of novelty and excellenee. and on Monday, the 11th of June, tin? beautiful saloon in Castle Carded will be thrown open to the pnblie, with a grand proWnade concert, from ft till 10 o'clock, and a ball for an hour afterwards. This Is a new and admirable Idea; and the charge for ndmt'sion being fixed at twenty-live cents, we may safely anticipate that, during the warm summer nights our citizens will sec k health, recreation, and Innocent amusement at' nstle Garden. We also learn that Max Maretiek Is rngaged as musical director. To-morrow evening there will he a grand sacred concert, by the celebrated New Y'ork Braes Band.

Yesterday, the first of June, put to flight the dreary, wet weather of the last eight or ten days, so uunaturul to the season.' Summer has burst upon us. in ull its glory, like a full-blown rose, and we may now calculate upon a succession of lino weather. The crops, whose growth has been ehecked by the ungenial cold, will flourish upace. under tho influence of the great source of beat and vitality. Child Daovrino.?Between 3 and 4 o'clock, on Thursday afternoon. May 31st, a woman stopped at 107 Lewis street, and left a young female child, about five or six weeks old, with the occupant of the house, and then ran away. Mrs. Anderson, with whom it was left, pursued the woman, but. could not overtake her, and sho consequently escaped. The child was placed yesterday in the hands of the proper authorities. On the night before last, about 10 o'clock, officer Kent found a male child, about a week old, in tho area of the house No. 47 1'erry street. It was well dressed, and wrapped in a large shawl. It was taken care of, tor the night, by a lady living in the house where it was found, and in the morning sent to the Alms House. Ciiilkrkn Lost ami Focivn.?John Mulgrow, Oyears old, lost, sent home to No. lot avenue D. Lewis Krews, 4 vears-old, lost, sent home to No. 4 Norfolk street. A boy about 2 years old, lost, sent to the 3d district police office, Kssex market. On Thursday, a lost child was taken to the Alms House, by officer Clarke. RoBBrnv ?The bouse of Mr. IHendershet No. S3 Henry street, was broken open and robbed of several urtieles of silverware, on the night of the iiOth of May Roiibkhy in an Kmk.rant Boahoinu Hoots: ?On Tuesday last, a Swiss emigrant staying at the emigrant hoarding bouse No. 1 Albany street, came down from his room to dinner, and. on his return, found his trunk open unci 400 francs extracted, which were contained in a leathern belt. He lias obtained no clue as yet to the thief. Is the proprietor of the house not responsible for the loss ? Houses ami Stores Vnrvn Oerv by tub Poi.icr.?On the night before last, the hall doors of KS Sixth avenue, of 71 Hudson street l,f 1W n?wl tl.u a<. of Booth A F.dgcs, nnd of March, in Jones's lane, wore found open, by the police patrolling in these several district". The grating of the house No. 88 Market street was broken open on the night of the Both of May. Disorderly IIoi'ik.?Mrs. Gcargo was arrested on Thursday evening, at 8 o'clock, for kecpiug a disorderly house, No. 106 Mercer street, on the complaint of Antoinette Dines, taken thence on Monduy night, by Captain Fitirchild. Fiat:.?A tire broke out at half past two o'clock yesterday morning, in the bake-house of Joseph llrueu, in the rear of 311 Uelancy street, which was soon subdued The damage is but trifling. N?w Fehrier.? We understand it is in contcmplntim to establish two new lines of ferries, on either river, not to cross, but to run along tbeiu. This is not only a novelty, but is likely to prove a great convenience to citlr.ens

residing '-up-town." The wonder is that it was not thought *f long sgo. One of these lines is to ply up ami down the Fast river, from the foot of Avenue O, where a lino new pier has just boon completed, to the South Kerry, touching at the foot of Kultoo street. The other, on the North river. Is to run from the foot of Forty-fifth street, lundiug at Canal street, and proceeding thence to I'ier No. 1. This will, no doubt, materially diminish the traffic of the ouinibusscs plying along hast Broadway and Houston streets, Grand street and Bowery, on the one side; and the Hudson street, Greenwich street, Bleecker street and Broadway lines, on the other. Should the latter line be established, it will obviate the necessity of a railway through Broadway, which lias been so long ugitated. and thus save that noble street from being disfigured. The Centre street and Bowery tnllway will not be affected in the slightest degree by the proposed innovation; but the lines of omnibuses we have mentioned will bo injured considerably, the price In the steamboats being only three cents, and in the summer season most people preferring the cool breeze of the river, plenty of room, and rapid locomotion. to crowded, hot omnibuses, with their slow travelling and delays. A petition Is before the Common Council for a ferry between the foot of Avenue C and Green Point, a locality that has risen of late into so great favor with our merchants as a summer residence. Ri.sci rn from Dromnino.?Yesterday a boy was rescued from drowning by officer YValerbury. at the loot of Walnut street. New Cm Ken in Y/illiasmruro?The now church erected by the First Baptist Church in Williamsburg, on the corner of Fifth and South Fifth streets, was dedicated for worship yesterday at four o'clock, P. M. It is n substantial, commodious and neat, though not a gorgeous edifice. Its erection cost $12 500, besides the ground, which cost $1,000, It is the best church in Williamsburg next to the Catholic church in Scenm! Struct. It waa crowded by a highly respectable congregation. The proportion of ladies was unusually great. Her S II. Cono, 1). I)., preaohuii ou the occasion. from the words:?'-Occupy till I come." In the course of his sermon the preacher traced the progress of the baptist denomination in Williamsburg, and referred to a time when they met in an upper room. Mr. Houghton, one of the trustees, then made an appeal of a pecuniary kind to the congregation, and a collection was made. Accidknt.?As Dr. H.

It appeared that on the 26th of June, 1848. the plaintiffs and defendant entered into a written contract whereby the plaintiffs covenanted and agreed that, for the space of one year, commencing at such time between the day of the date of their contract and the first ot September then next, as Mr. Ilamblin should decide upon, or for every week of theatrical performance in that space of time, perform under the direction of the defendant, or his deputy, all such parts and characters in all theatrical performances us shall from timo to time be allotted to , Madam Clocca, to the best of her skill and ability, in i every theatre belonging to ilefenduut, in which he ihall require her services; and that she should also att< nd all rehearsals and practices which should be deaired and directed by Mr. ilamblin. or his deputy, and to conform and abide by all uud every tho regulations anil penalties instituted by the said Thomas S. lluinb- ; liu fur the preservation of order und good government, and due attention to the business of the theatro, for , which she was to receive the sum of $50 for each week of thcatricnl exhibition, or a portion of , that sum for a portion of aDy week of thentri- ] cal exhibition that the theatre should be open { under the management oi the defendant; the week to , consist of six nights of theatrical entertainment, tic. The plaintiffs alleged that Mr. Ilamblin afterwards discharged Madam Clocca witb-ut rent onablc cause. The action Is brought ou the contract, to recover her j salary for one week. Tha defence set up, is that Mad. Clocca neglected her dutie., by not attending rehearsal ; at the theatre, pursuant to agreement: that alio refused on several occasions to dance in this city, and in ( particular she positively relusi-d to dance in two pieces got up by Mr Ilamblin. That she refused to go to Albany to dance with a Mr. Neary, whom Mr. Hiimblln bad engaged specially to dance there; in consequence of which, Ncary's engagement fell through and Hamblln derived no advantage from it, although ho had to jmj him according to the terms of the written agreement between thcui. Mr. Hamblin's counsel contended tbat defendant not only bud a right to discharge licr.but that under the new code he was entitled to set off the sum he paid to Neury as damages again-t the plaintiff's claim. The pluintiff replied, that A1r. Ilamblin executed a now agreement on the 2dd of No vomber. in explanation uf tbe original ogreeinent, whereby lie agreed that ho would not require her to go bejornl Do-too, I'rovidence, and Albany; and further agreed to pay her expenso* going to, and returning . from, those places. f'lalntillV counsel insisted that that if she were guilty of any offences previous to the ( execution of this last agreement, they were condoned j by it. A French physician was also produced to prove that, upon the occasion complained of by the defendant, (of iter baring refused to dance.) she ?a< unublo to da so. in consequence of a sprain in her kneo. It was also shown that on another occasion, when site did net attend rehearsal at ten o'clock in the morning, that ihcre was an understanding between Neary, who was to dance with her. and Mr. Stevens, the deputy nuinagrr, that the rehear so I was not to commence until one o'cleck in the uft< moon, and that Neary so advised iior. The Judge charged that t lie claim v. as for the week due ending the third of May, and that ilamldin was bound to rail on brr to perioral : that it was not enough for defendant to show that she did not pi rform ; but tiiat he should also show that ho called upon her to perform, and that she refused lie further chnrgcd In relation to her sickness, that il they believed the was sick, she was. oil her recovery, hound to give notico that she was ready to resume lier professional s< r vices ; tl.< ; (the jury) heard the evidence that, she did give notice to the deputy manager ; and if they belie; cd the evidence, il was good notice He also charged the jury that the employment ot plaintiff, by Mr. JlamMin, subsequent to the allogi d iufmotiojis of the rules, operated as u condiUHthn, and I< ft the original agreement in full force; that thorn was nothlfig In (lie evidence to show that Mr. IJamMin over gave any notice to the p'.aintilT tlint he would avail himself of tlio1 infraction* of the lilies of the theatre to annul the agreement, nnd that Mr. fluiiiWIin udght now compel hertofUKU lior engageru lit.

Witness in a physician practising in this city, residing in 27th street, between 2d and 3d avenues ; recollects the day Mrs. Walker was shot; was called in to see her at about halfpast 2 o'clock one Tuesday aftirnoon; found her lying in the centre of the room, on the tloor, on her back, she wus in a state of collapse, blood flowing from her chest; there was a wound on the right side of the chest; it was a circular wound, depressed to the left of the shoulder lllixt tll.i.Ilf on I...V, K..I ?... -nil.. V ri.. ?< III nil Warner were present at the time; witness introduced his linger to tindthe direction of the ball; the ball had entered the cheat; put a compreaa on the wound (just a roller of cotton), put a buudage on and mixed her up to put her on a cot. and then found a wound on the back, down bolow the ahoulder blade, near the spine; she died on the following Wednesday evening; witness made the jiosf mortem examination, assisted by Dr. Morrill, other physicians being present. THE rosr MUST KM. Tii-.'ssday, March 1st, 1840, made a lost mortem examination on the body of Mrs Martha E. Walker, at 4t) Lexington avenue; found a circular wound on tho right side of the cheat three-quarters of an inch in diameter, uliout un inch and a half to tho left of the coracoid process, and about one inch below the clavicle or collar bone; in removing theintegumonts a quantity of blood was fuuud extravuMited iu tho cellular tissue; tlio pcctorulis major muscle wax rent about three inches, and had the appearance ot being burut; on removing the sternum or breast bone, the right lung was found collapsed aud lacerated; about a quart of blood was found In the right cavity of tlio chest; the second rib was fractured about tbreo and a quarter inches from the sternum, tho third rib tracturcd about two and a half inclios from the sternum; the ball passed between the second and third ribs and through both lobes of the right luug, iu an oblique direction downwards and backwards, aud passed out of the back between the seventh aud eighth ribs, about < nc auil a quarter iuch to tho right or the spine, splintering the inferior edge of the seventh rib; the posterior wouud was about half an ineh across. The distance through the chest from the anterior t? the posterior wound was about seven inches; the pleura on tlie right sight inflamed. A few ounces of sorum in the left side of the chest, left lung healthy, heart healthy, liver pale,but healthy; stomach healthy, contained about tour ouuees tluid; uterus healthy, intestines healthy. Did not examine tho brain; measured about five feet four inches in height. Teatimony continued ?The wound was tlio cause of the death; found no bnll in body; hard to say how tho pistol was tired; the direction of the ball before it struck the bone was oblique; its whole course was oblique. Crota-exaviined.?Mr. Walker called witness in; met him on the 3d avenue; he was in a house, and some one pointed witness out us a physician; the house ha was in was a drug store; it was uiy brother's house; my brother pointed me out to him; we went together to the house; witness left the house to see a patient, lifter having dressed tlio wouud. and returned again; Walker was there iu custody, on wituoss first going there; believes Walker left ut Mrs Wells'request to nnu 1*1 rn. run; uowi mix were fractured. nut spllntcrcd; quite broken, not chipped. To a Juror.?The second and tlilrd ribs are about an ineli apart; the oblique direction of the bull would cause both ribs to be traeturud; after striking the first, its oblique direction would lend to its striking the sicoud. which is further out; u person standing up with heron the floor, at about two paces distance, could hardly hare inflicted that wound; in witness's judgment the muzzle of the pistol, to produce this wound, must have been very close; should think not much further than a foot; the burn and tear, taken nil together, indicate that the muzzle must have been put close; if the muzzle hud been put close to the breast, it might, perliups, have produced such a wound. [I'o an attempt to obtain an opinion from thu doctor, hew tho pistol might have been fixed, the Judge decided that it was foreign to htB profession to decide such matter.] Direct domination resumed.?Thu wound was such as might have been given by one person standing, to another while sitting, or to a person in a bent or kneeling position; if she hud dodged, the pistol would not have struck her; gun shot wounds are hard to give au opinion upon; Mrs. Walker was five feet four inches high; witness measured her; the muzzle of the pistol, applied within one foot might have produced all tjie effects seen.

[A ring was here produced, taken from finger of deceasi d. by the coroner of the city, after her death; admitted lis being the identical ring ] Counsel for prisoner objected t* this witness. The Attorney General hud intended to produce the writing of the ring as circumstantial evidence of marriage; but as the uiau who engraved the writing could not be produced, the ring was withdrawn. The prosecution here rested, and proposed to call no mere witnesses. At this stage of the trial prisoner's counsel, Mr. O'Conor. moved the court to strike out from the record of the evidence taken hitherto in this case, the record from the State of Connecticut of the divorce of Charles F. Miller and .Mrs. Martha Miller, his wife, on the ground that the record in its present state was Imperfect, as not containing tho answer or plea of Charles K. Miller. '1 he Attorney General, Mr. Jordan, contended that the recoid of the decree of a divorce from a competent jurisdiction is a good record, and that it did not requiro that all the pleadings, and answers, and replications, and evidence, tec . tec., tec , should accompany the record of a decree of divorce, in order to make it perfect. If the jurisdiction is i stnblished, the decree of divorce is a perfect and sufficient record |CMr. O'Conor, for the prisoner, replied. Judge llrr.i but decided agaiust the motion, on the ground tliat the paper a?ked to be withdrawn did not puipnrt to be u record of legalcommon law proceedings. It was a simple act of the legislature ol tho State of Connecticut, and as a legislative act It was admissible, us such, as evidence. The question might arise how far the act was valid, but that question did not arise now, though it was the Judge's opinion that the legal effi rt of the act was null. A legal discussion hereupon arose on the validity of the act which left the question as before. Mr. O'Conor then began his speech, enforcing the innocence of the prisoner, the injustice of oalling him a prisoner, and the cruel persecution he has received from the public press. The State now rested, but it had nc right to rest. Mr. O'C.'s mottou wasgoing to be, that the State should produce the evidence and witnesses, viz: Mrs Hill and Mr. Samuel L. Southard, on which the Coroner's verdict hud been gireu and the judgment found. Mr. O'Conor insisted that without these witnesses tho State hud no right to rest. Mr. O'C. centi uded Unit the f.nglieli rule of law was that the prosecution was obliged to cull and examine all the witnesses examined before the Grand Jury. The learned counsel went into the cases whioh appeared to him to show Unit tbe Statu was obliged te cull all the witnesses concerned in the ruse. Tbc Court then adjourned, the argument still pending.

"War t ron the Pins.?The neighborhood of Fort Green was, on Thursday last, the scene of considerable excitement, in consequence of the war of extermination commenced upon the pigs in the vicinity by the worshipful fathers of the city, througli their humble servant, the City Inspector.
