r TH NO. 6487. Bishop Donne's Own Statement, (tulte Had Knou^li?lllnlrit of the Holy Uplti'opsl t'tiuicto In New Jersey. The undermined w.ia elected Bishop of New Jersey on the 3d day of October, leCfi, being then rector of Trinity Church, in the city of Boston, lie hud no knowledge that it w is intended to use his nuor* in that connection ; the first intimation on ihe subject being the inliv.d of the committee rent to announce to him the result In the matter of support,.the.committee stated thai nothing had been (lone by the convention ; (nit thiit it was understood that it should receive attention at the next ses.-ion.* Accustomed to leave the guidaace "of hia ways to Almighty God, regarding the solemn act of the convention as done under His directum, and urged to acquie.-ce in it by those of the Bishops on whom he had habitually relied for conn el, he consented, and was consecrated on the 31st day of October. lit the sunimer of 1KM, being ilien ut lodgings in the city of Burlington, hut on the point of establishing htntself m the city of Newark, on strong representations of advantage to tin- chinnh from such an arrangement, the venerable Br. Wharton died; and at the urgent solicitations of the vestry and parishioners he accepted the rectorship thus vacated. The salary ottered wus $440 per annum, with the parsonage ; increased tdterwurd to $700. Burner the whole period of Ins rectorship, an average of more than one-half of this sum lias been paid lor the services of others, retit'fied necessary by his occupation with the duties of the diocess. From thy diocess itself Iris nnnu. 1 receipts to June 1 last, including travelling expenses and postage, hive averaged $241. These two have been his only sources of official income ; utul together have not exceeded $00(1 per annum. At the date ot the consecration ofthe undersigned, the church iu the diocess of New Jersey was ju a most feeble and depressed condition. As an illustration of it, the whole amount ofthe missionary collet-lions, from all the parishes, reported at the convention ot HS$i, was ?121 iiu'i. It was obvious that, it) revive the worn of the Lord, and have niore than a name to live, something was culled fo?beyond the slow and distant hope of parochial improvement. A rally of churchmen wus needed, on church principles, for the work of the church. The natural reliance, with God's blessing, must be on Christian education ; and the plan of a diocesan school for hoys was proposed, at a very early day. _ While this was in contemplation, the proprietor of a long established female sentina ry, m me cuy m nurungroti, desiring to retire fioiri its chaige, proposed to the undersigned to purchase the establishment, as a church scliool for girta., This was in lfcCJti. On consultation with judicious friends, here and elsewhere, who advised "the enterprise, and offered their aid in carrying it into effect, it was undertaken. And "St. Mary's Hull, lor leniule education, on church principles," was opened, on the first day of May, 1H37. The announcement was received with acclamation throughout the church.. Hut who docs not remember the waves and billows which, that season, overran the land ! What strongest house, what mo6t established institution, at that time, was not shaken 1 The wrecks stiil lie along the shore. Its first effect upon the undersigned was to arrest the subscription to a loan of $2.1,(.00 toward an endowment, before twi - birds of it had been obtained, and leave him to supply the deficiency as he best could. Its farther effect was to keep down the patronage of trie institution, for several years, to a point far below the cost of maintenance. Nevertheless, i did not stop. And, at one time, when there were bat twenty-six pupils, more th in one quarter of them were free ; being orphans, or children of poverty. To go on at such a rate, of course, involved a debt. The undersigned had faith in God : and merging in the work his whole resources and his credit, it went on. As prosperity returned to the country, patronage flowed in upon St. Mary's Hall. And then success became embarrassing. Buildings were to be erected, and fixtures and furniture were to be supplied ; and to do th is. there * was no resource but current income, or pledge of credit. Of course the debt increased. To srovide for it. paper must be used. To be procured, it must be paid for. And then in a majority of cases, its discount must be had at extra cost. A perfect confidence that continued success would ensure ultimate relief, encouraged exertion; and mule trials tolerable, for the work's sake, which no personal interest would have sustained one week. The acceptance of the Christian school for girls, created a demand for a Christian school for boys. People said, " Why not provide for our sons, as well as for our daughters 1" There was waste water that might help to turn another mill: In 1845, special circumstances seemed to indicate that the time had come for such an undertaking. A movement was then made for a school for hovs, such as St. Mary's Hall already was for girls. The proposition met with signal lavor. It was at once said, " Why not make it a college I The time is propitious. At any rate, procure a charter, and use it when you are ready." A charter was procured. A site was purchased. The pressure of patronage forced on the work beyond its time, so that, at the end of two years, the catalogue enrolled a hundred and twenty-seven students. There was no endowment There was was no moneyed pa ;onHge Every thmg w as 'o be done, and nothing to do it with. Every thmg was done, and done with nothing. For, what was a subscription of $8,000 toward the grounds, the buildings, the fixtures, the furniture, the apparatus?the entire provision, religious, scholastic and domestic ? for a hundred and twenty-seven childien, and the whole staff of teachers i Nevertheless, the provision has been made, and the children have Imen collected, and there they are. Th- examination just closed has secured, as it deserved, the highest approbation. And he who. with God's blessing, has accomplish! d these thingp, after two mpst dangerous attacks of illness, which confined him for nearly five months, having exhausted in his enterprise for Christian education, his mpans and his credit, is left with two most successful institutions, whose annual receipts are not less than $70, ,000,and with an unmanageable debt. When the undersigned first owned the m?r?y ?f Almiohtu (in.) in tnrninir huelc km fure mid t'sft from toward the grave, his Instinctive impulse whs to provide for the reduction of this indebtedness. It was well established that, if the two institutions Were subjected t? nothing more than their prwper expenditure?freed, that is to say, from the disadvantages of a credit system ot business, and of an extravagant outlay for the maintenance of credit ?uvery large percentile of theirleceipts, after paying the whole cost of currying thein on, might he applied to that object. He therefore invited tfcne of bis friends to accept the trans er of his whole Interest in both, nutnuurinit together two hundred and eighty seveu pupils, iu trust, to secure their mod effective and economical administration , and then to distribute the surplus receipts, from time to time, among thocredltors of both; he himself, devoting himself. as heretofore and more, to their continuance and success; and waiving all claim for consideration or oiiipeni-ation, till every form of indebtedness -h >nld be extinguished. At two large meetings of the persons ahietiy mtereited. this proposition was approved, and its prosecution was earnestly recommended Ultimatet o ..d rF..alnt-S I,. ?h.. nll-n tiree to eign tho necessary agreement: not because th> y diil not desire that it should be earried into effect, and bi'lii-tp that it might bp doue successfully, but, frnni expectation*. unreasonably entertained, of relief drom other quarter* I At a council wfbi* friend*, called to consider what should be done in tbi* (tate of ailair . tho undersigned was unanimously advised o wane an a**i| Blent ol all liie property lor tin- hem-ntofali hix credit! rs. and to arrange. for the parrying on of tiie institution*. under bin own conduct and supervision. but oil toe linaurial re-jxoi Ability an<l bnaine** direction of other*, a* before proposed TIiip ha* been done.

To tiik Editor ok the Herald:? Sin?Tho universal fairness and liberality which you huve hitherto exhibited in your notices of the West India mail service, induces mo to ask your indulgence while I oiler a very brief reply to some remarks in your columns of yesterday, which seem to uie to be founded upon it mi-apprehension of tile facts, as they exist in oouncctiou with the line iu question. A comparison is instituted, in the article to which I refer between the fiuu line of steamers built by Mr. Aspinwall. for the Pacific service, and the steamers contracted for at the same time between tills city. Havana. New Orleans, and Cling res. for which, as you Biate. the contructurs are tiotv in the receipt of the sum ot $26,t00 per mouth, aud which liuve not yet beca put in operation. Whence the delay of the commencement of the latter branch of the service, is the question which, in the absence of and explanation, you ask. uud which very naturally arises. Fortunately, au explanation is by no mentis difficult. Mr. Aspitiwall contracted fur three steamers, of l,(i(K) tons, or thereabouts, in burthen, and completed theui iu fair time The contractor for the West India service engaged to construct steuuiers of the burthen of 1.600 tons but. at the instance of the government, subsequently agreed to Increase the size of liis Teasels to almo't double that capacity. it having been decided that it would be for the luiiioRi in uie service mac steamers adapted lor war purposes iu the Atlantic! should be of the very largest class. Iu accordance with that understanding, two strainers, one of 2 tSC'C and thu other of 2,Cut) tons, have been constructed and arc now nearly ready for aoa, making a tonnage of & 400. to set-off against the 3 000 tons of Air Aspinwall. It this ditlercncu in the amount of labor und expense is not sufficient to acmunt for the difference in time of completion, which wilt not exceed six months, the well known difficulty of procuring timber of tho requisite quality and dimensions, which existed at thu commencement of this great undertaking, would seem to afford a satisfactory aolutiou of the delay. The article referred to goes on to characterize this mail line as being still in embryo, and states that its benefits thus far uro unknown, except to thoee who aro in receipt of the monthly bonus. Now. whether a line which presents, almost entirely completed, two of tbo largest and tincst steamers ever launched, upon the hulls and engines of which have been expended the lirst mechanical tale.it In the country, nod an amount of money exoueding half a million of dollars, can be considered merely In embryo, I leave to the decision of any one who has the curiosity to pay a visit to thu vessels in question. Kqually erroneous Is the suggestion that the benefits conferred by this line are unknown except to the recipients of the monthly bonus of $'?> 0U0. The contractors of the liue in question (although, for reasons assigned, they have not yet put in commission their permanent force), have performed by vessels temporarily accepted by government, one-half their regular service, having delivered a mail monthly at every port on their route, and are still continuing to do so. without any monthly bonus or mail pay whatever True it is, tbut t onxress. iu its discretion, advanced tn the West India line, in common with Mr. Asplnwairs Pociflc line, and AT ollin s Liverpool Ine, oik (year's mail pa>, to aid in the completion of the vessels; but thi? aaa done for tbe advancement of what was considered a great public interest, and not for any services rendered whatever. la it not unfair, then, in the laat degree, te aelect the Weat India line, which baa performed even toura of mail duty, aa an object of animadveraion ? to accuae it of receiving pay for aervicea not rendered, while Mr. Aapinwull'a Pociflu line, which haa delivered but one mail, ia held up aa worthy of commendation, and Mr. Colllnx's I iverpool line, which haidnever pretended to perform any duty whatever, though in receipt of a much larger advance, eacapea unscathed from all ceneure? Really, air. though far from aceuxing yon of any deelgn to mixrepreient. I muat be permitted to aay, that thore who have undertaken te Inform you upon tbia anbject, have abuaed your confidence, by suppressing some facta, and twisting othera to auit their own enda. inatead of giving you a fair atatement of the caae. Your underatanding of the contract, aa originally made with the government, for the Weat India Tine. U correct, ao far aa the aerviee to be performed and the umount to be paid ate concerned. The subsequent variation of the terma in regard to the aite and exSense of the (learners, made by govertiment itself, I uve already stated, and. in answer to the Intimation held out. that it would be desirable to know when the service would be performed.! according to- contract, I will merely state that the Ohio will go to sea in July, and the Oeorgia in September at the latest, when it ia expected that the service, and the whole service, will be performed, according to contract. As to the exteuriunoftimehvgovlTnment.it ia neither the prac11 e.nor w uld it be f r be intcreatof g v rnment to oppress aucb of its citizens as fulfil their co'iiructx acci riling to the best of their ability ; a liberal exten? on of time baa been granted to the contractors on tha Bremen line and on the Liverpool line, although tbey bad no especial claim to it. Why any objection should be raised to an equal extension in tuvor of the West India line, which, from its extra undertaking at tbo instance of government, boa a fair cluiiu to it, I confess I am unable, upon any piinciple of justice or equity, to discover. as to the necessity of having, in our intercourse with San 1- runcixco facilities on this side of the Istbmus equal to those enjoyed on tbe other side, we shall not dificr. But have not tboae facilities existed hitherto ' Have not even greater farili?>a existed through the steamers employed by this vary line on this side? But one mall has been delivered at Tunatua by the Pacific line ; seven have been delivered by the Went India line at t hagres. If the mail from ban Kraucisco was in iidi: instance uciajea. because the 1'acitlc steamer did not anive till alter the oakling of the Falcon, bow man; muilo from tho Atlantic 'coast laid over, because the I'acitlc lino bad dot arrived at their port: " It is right," says tho article, "that government ahould anoint and foeter our foreign lineo of steamers. to enable them to compete with linen footored by other governments, as la the taoe of ,the Cunard line " That io the very principle upon which the eontractor tor the West India line (who. by the way, was the original projector of this whole system of ocean steam service.) asked the assistance of government. But," continues the article referred to, it io unjust in the extreme, and a vile abuse of authority, to aid unit line of oteamero to run against another in the coasting i trade." Is the West India line merely a line of coast- i era? Is Havana a foreign port? I?< hagres a foreign rnviuvii 1/..r* bui tiri'ni uritain Ioncer a ltd* of simmers to the West Indie* and the Uulf of Mexico? Really. I should be glad to be Informed why an Amertaun rtoatn marine, to com|>ete with the British line* in that quarter, abould not receive the lame degree ef , public patronage which is extended to tun traus- , atlantic line*? In one most Important point of view^it : I* raetly more essential that we should hare a fleet of . steamers adapted to war purpose* on our southern | coast and ou llio (julf of .Mexico, than any where elm'; | and till, was so fully impressed upon the minds of our | rulers and members oi Congress, by the alarm which was felt at the presence of the large steam force maintained in the West Indies and the (iulf by tireat Britain. pending ?ur last anticipated difficulty with that power, that it decided thn question in favor of the Oc ean Steam sen Ice. in spite of every objection that could be raised against it. Now, is this treat and estsbli-bed branch of public policy to be abandoned, bicause the steam squadron, w inch, in lime of war. is to be the most efficient arm of defence for our southern seaboard, will compete. In time of peace, with the merchant steamer* employed in the aoasting trade? The private lines between New York and New Orleans, i barleston.

(Ireat curiosity was manifested by the audience to obtain a sight of the accused; but as her personal appearance does not happen to be <|ulte as prepossessing as has been imagined, the first glimpse was perfectly satisfactory, and all attention was absorbed in the exciting 'examination ? The Hon. Pierre Sonle appeared for Mr. Micheud. the party on whom the forgery is alleged to have been committed; Cyprien Dufour, Esq. was present on behalf of the accused The first witness sworn was Mr Cnnrsu.i.A, the notary public, lie stated that the note was handed to him for collection 011 the 14th April, by Mr Oallot, who stated that he had been married on that morning and desired witness to collect it and remit the proceeds to New 1 ork.

The body of the note was not in his hand writing. He did not know the accused; had soon her only at his store on the 13th of April last, where, alter having bought various articles,she took a piece or paper out of her reticule, noted down the purchase and asked witness to receipt the account She acted in a similar manner with auother small purchase on the same occasion, and thus obtained two dilfercnt signatures from him Witness presumes that the paper bad been chemically prepared, so as to be susceptible of taking off a portion of the writing and leaving the material part untouched; the accused stated that her name was Mademoiselle Maria Witness being (juestioucd by Mr Soule. declared tbat he bad never signed a note of the kind; tbat the accused bad been only one# or twice in bis store, and tbat the scandalous rumors afloat in regard to an Intimacy with her were entirely false; witness van positive tnat he had never signed the note; in fuct. he had never, on any previous occasion. issued any su< h note Cton examined by Mr. Dufour.?Is this your signature?

Mr D contended that blsclient could not be deemed culpable, if the entire basis of the prosecution, the signature to the note, was disposed of iu such an unsatisfactory manner. Mr Solle insisted that under the circumstances no other reply could be called for on the part of the witness. Mr S. then produced a magnifying glass and applied it to the aiguature, so as to satisfy the court that the body of tbe note had been ruu in subsequently to the signature He also pointed to tbe solemn declaration of the witness that be bad never signed bis name in such a manner. Mr. Drms still Insisted on a plain, straightforward answer to his question but on propounding it again, the reply was the lame as at first. II ?Have you not stated elsewhere, in conversation, that this was your signature ? A.?No. sir. I never declared that it was my signature. though I have always stated that it bore a close resemblance; I still believe that my signature has been transferred by some chemical process. Mr. Soule then stated that be was going to bring forward a witness who, he believed, would prove t<> tbe court l hut the advertisement, inserted in the Brt of the'JOth of March, relative to tbe rapid anqaisition of a frrtuae by some equally rapid means, was handed in at tbe time by the prisoner at the bar. The gentleman alluded to was Mr K. Uuverger. the accountant of that establishment. To this Mr Dufuur objected inest decidedly, as repugnant te all tbe principles of law and justice. I onslderable discussion took place between the legal wentlcmen in recant to the arlinlMniriri r>f the te-iti.rw.nw in question . but the matter wim final!) decided by the ourt. who ruled it out. and the wittier* wan discharged '1 he next and I art witness called war Mr. Tosesot.

Hi* Hunoa remarked that the circumstance* of the cane were such ar would compel him to refer the matter to a higher tribunal. Mr. Di iih k spoke at *ome length, and contended that no proof bed been alleged that Mr* Oallot hud given circulation to the note, or that the document bad been seen in her possession. He shifted also the ground of defence by alleging the husbaud of the accused war responsible for the acts id hi* wife aud that on him rested the responsibility of the affair The Coi'BT. however, refused to entertain the*e arguments, and committed the accused for trial before the first District! ourt.

Faktil'Ulars.?There are some late- i resting particulars and incidents of the Are in Dunne 1 street, on Tuesday evening, which, from the late hour i in the morning before its ravages were stayed, we were unable to insert in yesterday's Herald, but which we supply to-day. On looking at the ruins yesterday, in daylight, they presented a scene of desolation bearing emphatic testimony to the power of the destructive element, and the victory it achieved, in despite of its great antagonist, the Croton water, and the skill and energy with which it was wielded by the Are companies There wore heaps of brick, charred timber and moulds, out of which the dissolved sugar flowed the night betore in liquid fire, all lying in promiscuous confusion; while here and there the smouldering Humes still shot up, and a small portion of the walls aud the large cbimuey (which is cracked) stood as inemorluls of what had been. There was one curious feature In the scene? a Croton pipe, that had been used iu the refinery, having been broken, continued to throw up the water like a jet. as it did the night before, amidst the flumes. The trees in the grounds of iho Hospital exhibit a scorched appearance from the excessive In at ? a circumstance which will give some idea of the strength of the fire. Mr llurris's dwelling house, adjoining the sugar refinery, notwithstanding the elTorta to suve it. and the degree of success that, attended these efl'orts, had all the appearance of a wreck It waa strewed with broksu furniture and charred wood, while the floors were completely saturated With water, whieh dripped through the ceilings like rain, rendering tliriu so uselrss that they must be taken down. As we ascended to thealtio story, whore the brave fireman threw himself into tile tlauies witli ids hose, the appearance was still more desolate. The bannisters of the stairs leading up to it. were torn away ? the entire roof was burin d in llierear. und oven iu tile front, it is so much injured tiiat it must be replaced. Kvery part of the house is more or less damaged ? The furniture is removed from it. Sherwood* brewery, which ceased working about a fortnlgh ago, was at one time iu great danger. It is iiux door to Mr. Harris's. The great thickness of tli walls, and its tiled roof, with the assistance of the fire mcB, saved it. Quite close to it. I tie tire broke out vesterday. at VI o'clock, with such vigor that a hose had to be introduced through Mr. Harris's hall door and brought to play upon it Mr. Khenvood was just mounting IiIk horse in bis own yard, on I'u day niglit, to go see a sick friend, when he observed the lire bursting forth from one of the windows on the oast side. The livery stables of Thurston ic Townsend are completely it eatroyed. not so much by the fire as by ihu wall of the refinery falling upon the roof and carrying all before it. The crash was tremendous; tile r d-hot tin ' on the roof Itew into the air like paper when the wall struck it. The vehicles inside were smashed t atoms, mi.I iHiiri piopmy uiBlli'jru. r >r wuilo, ."ly . HI" nurses were all got out in time?a thing lint in rather difficult to accomplish in casus of tire? for these animals beuoine no paralysed with fear that they w ill not move for persuasion or force. < apt M H Croft wan very nearly losing his life on the occasion; he want to assist a military friend t? get his horsa out otthe stabla, and bad, with great efforts, just succet'iied. when the crash camo, and one ot the falling rafters broke his hat and tore his coat. We are luippy to be able to state that, the proprietors of tiles# stables,had them fully iusured The i'resbj terian church fruutiug Uuuue street aud lying north of the refinery, bcara evident murks of the aetion of the fire upon it. The tinning Is raised off it In several spots It was in iuunineut dinger Three detached dwelling houses, running longitudinally into Church street, hut each having ns front to Uuane, lay between the church and the ruin, aud had a narrow escape of being completely consumed. As it Is, one of them? the frame house alluded to In our re- 1 port, yesterday?has sustained great damage the back pait of the roof being burned off, aud one side of the building much charred The second house was injured ?lio. the window frames being burnt out. The third or rear house escaped all injury They were inhabited by ' reveial poor families, who bad their furniture brokcu in removing it. As to the origin of the lire, nothing certuln is known. Surmises have been thrown out that aie at variance with the accuracy of facta No incendiary has been arrested, as stated in a coutemp wary, nor is any one suspected. The workmen had all left the place at half-past six o'clock, their usual hour for stopping; and Mr Harris's sou went up to iuspect the premises at half-past seven o'clock, and to give soma wnter to a setter dog that wus kept there for the purple of watching The poor dog w? s burnt. There was then no appearance of lire nor until half-pa.it uino o'clock, when It suddenly broke out in tlin upper part of the building. A month before the present occurrence, the upper purt of the Fame establishment took 1 fire fr?m charcoal used in refining, which had not been ffumcieniiy conieu girer H *?< manuiac'urru ny m* partle* who cuppliol it. On that occasion. fortunately the fire wsh teen in time and extinguished l>y Mr Harris, without calling in the aid of tin? tiro engines The building, which, two yeara ago. cut $2'1.000, waff Insured for only the nuui of $4 000, ami the stock, Slq . for $27,000. making in all $31 Oik) insurance The loan, after receiving this money in calculated nt 1 $46,000 No praise can do sufiieient justice to the (Ire- 1 men?their exertioDH?their bravery?their reckleae- 1 neffff of all danger?the con(|ueat they achieved iu arresting the further prngresH of the Mames? are worthy of the high character they have earned, nud which j place* them at the head of the firemen of the whole ' world. The fire continued to ffmoulder the whole ?f 1 yeffterday. owing to the maffff of wood that lie* under 1 the blickff. which prevent* it* burning out freely.
