On Saturday 1 moininp, his Honor, Judge IVuraon, delivered the follow icg opinion:? tl Thete cut' b were before the Court on writs of U bahut torpvt, the defeuduntH having l>een coin- I mined on w urranto itwued hy a Justice of the IVhC'-. Ii Mtmi that oalhs were made charging them fi with having stolen certain pro|>erty On ouths warrants were issued, the atfendants arrested, brought before the magistrate, and, without a healing, committed to prison. It mitfht he implied, and is admitted, that the offence, it'any, wan committed in the Ssi*te of Virginia. Srvt ral objections havs been raised to the regularity of the warrants of commitment! 1 Thut it is not stated where the offence was eon mint d. 2. That the ownership of the property stolen is not sulliciently averred. The defendant* have alio given evidence tsshnw the irrt gulaiitv of the proceeding*, and on whit I circumstances ihe charge was founded. The oatti whs made, ami a note of the facts stated on the | docket of the justice, hut not signed L>y the depo| jient. We ore ?.f opinion that the whale proceeding is very loose ar<d megulur. The warrant of commitment should Mate whose property was stolen, and where the otl? nee was committed Hid that , proceeding been regular, we should not hive looked beyond it, except when called on to fix the I amount ol buil, and possibly to see w hether any 1 gross mistake had been committed by the lmtgistruie. The defendants have called the party making th'. charge, and also :he man whose proj>erty was alleged to have been stolen, to show the circumstances under which it was stolen ; and from the evidence, it seems that time horses were taken in the blrfte of V'irginis, probably by the three prisoners w ho were proved to be ttb:condini! slavestwo of them belonging to Mr. Taylor. They, it is stated, took with them two of their master's horses, with saddles and bridles, rode them about thirty miles, and tutu'd them loose. 1 he slaves were pursued, and the horses found where tliey had probably been abandoned, in ill(a?e ot William, called John Strange, there is no evidence tin* hoi e was stolen, although it was nlhged that William *xle oll'a horse belonging to Mr Littlejohn We have no proof of Mr. Littlejohn's hoise having been stolen at all. From unuht that there appeals, lie might have l?een leHt. w?mud ther? hue di.-ini s William, without further inv? stigaiion, us there ih no ground whatever for committing linn. Several questions have bteii raised by the defendant's counsel. First: That the proceeding couM only be sustained under ihe met of Congress?therefore, the i wt,rraut was illegally issued on an oath in ide in IVniis) Ivania. We have no doubt tint warraut was ininro|?erly issued, as the oath should have stated tnal the crime was committed in Virginia, and the defendants had fled from jut-tice But we do not agree to the position assumed, that the oath must be made under the act of Congress. When to made, and property certified, or when 'he indictment is found in snother State, and proiwily authenticated, we consider it conclusive, ana we have iiu right to inquire beyond it. But when fugitives are nursut d into Pennsylvania, we consider it strictly legal to make sn oath liefore an oHicar of the law here?have a warrant Usued?the party arrested hiid committed, in order to await a requisition of i the Governor of the Stat from which he il-d. It is not so much a matter of comity as a police ! regulation of our own, to get clear of dingerous deiu qiients. We do not sustain the proceedings for the I" iii fit of the'Slute whose laws are violated, nlone, but lor our own safety. We are well aware tliat the h gislation of Congress is exclusive in many casts: aiid it ilo- rights of Virginia alone were concerned, she could not urge us to do more th*n ? ferry into eliect the Congressional provision. every State has a right to protect Us own citizens from the felons of other JStates; and if we choose to |>ermit our magistrates to exercL-e such jurisdic- t tion r n mi oath made under our own laws, the fugitive ihurgrd with felony cannot lawfully complain. The Supreme Court of Massichusetts, in 5? page ."iUi?decided that their act of Assembly, authorizing a similar proceeding, did not couthct with the federal constitution ; and the custom at c?>nnii n law of Pennsylvania, on the same subject, is equally valid ; deprived of such power, a large portion of the most dangerous criminals would "escape punishment The only question left open is as to the guilt or ilun cencc of Samuel Wilson and George Bp>oks. An ii|t? nint has been made to prove 'hat these men w < ir in this i ouuty at the time the alleged larceny ti w as commuted, for the put|<o?e of showing a gross 7 mistake in the charge, and raising doubts as to the ( identity. We hnve no doubt, whatever, thnt these men are slaves belonging lo Mr. Taylor, and fled at the time and in the rammer stated by him. We hnve, alto, no doubt that they took the hows, cad Ilex | and bridlts; tor, although there is no direct proo j of the fuel, yet the men and the prop-rty disapi peared fiom the same place at tlie same time, and the horses tire found in the direction the men would |um* to reach this place, where they were artisted; but the only |*>int of any doubt is n.t to the intention w ith which they were taken. *Vlen i ore man clandi stincly carries oil the property of another in the night time, the fair presumption is that he intruded to steal it; bat that presumption limy lie ripelled by circumstances. The puty charged mi.y show that he took the article fjr a ten | orary piir(>o?e?not with the intention to steal; but merely to use, intending to return it, or leave it v here the owner might get I: again. 'J he defence mainly de|>ent* on thrir being slaves endeavoring to esca^>e from their master*, and using their horses for that purpose, and not aamiw /urnwf/i. If there was any rea*onabl? doubt as to th? inti ntion, it would be our duty to s<-nd the case* to a jury of the State of Virginia ; but wa have none ; and if the men wer# on their trial in this coHrt, we should r obliged to instruct the jury to acquit them. The rule of law ia settled in n)im< rous cases, and nt va>ioua |>enods of our jn.lnl history, that, if proi ity is taUen,even ; clandestinely, yet not writh the intention to steal, but merely to use, it is not larceny. If probable en use to fx line these ni'-n guilty wis made out, as committing msfistntes we should retain them for ttial ; hjt we do not think that any crime ha* be< u proven against thei. . and that the taking was a mere tresoaaa No prool has been adduced as to whit laws exist in \ irL'inia on the subject of the abduction of propi tty by ?lar< ; but w ? tat - i' for granted that, in the absence of evidence, the* are governed by the rules of common law. lr the rule is more slut gent in this ?tale, it ah mid be shown by the *' n Anothe r point has lietn raised: Thai the Court t Will BOl ft I mm to t?* arrested, ns they |( have been fraudulently seiiecl. imprisoned, anil v t rougM into Court on criminal charge. for which |r thert wsi-no foundation whatever.

! shows that & ji-rsevering man may attain the highI est position in the Slates, as a similar man might I | attain a high iKwition here ; but otherwise it indi, rates an unsafe state of society. A barrister in ' | London might get into Parliament by family inlluI eoce, but he iciild not rise to u high ottice in the nat<- unless his professional talents were sufficient to secure for him a comment income. Mr. Filltncrtt vufmtly ;>o$utfci the rr/uinte talenti, but t)uy art net exchangeable fur a high remuneration in tht ordinary huniuMt of hit own country ; or hit 1 duuf.httr icoulfi not It yroftuionuHy engaged in i teaching, and lut fatiitr at entity years of age would nut it laboriously ociuj/ied in farming. An apparent defect exists somewhere in the Union, when this state of matters is produced. Men of wealth apparently do not take mittll IatTI* In pHtfl ai><l men of talent, even after they have acquired celebrity, do not become rich. The removal of all obstructions to progress, from the dyer's vat to the teats of the Legislature, or in a republic, as in this case, to the Presidential chair, is not objectionable ; but the want of steps upwards, bringing additional remuneration as thi y confer additional rank and responsibility, is calculated to produce personal jobbing by ofiicials, of which the United States have had recently some most deplorable instances, tnd from which they will never be entirely exempt, while clever and experienct d men, without any means of their own eurninp, or from any other source, are elevated to the highest places in the State, for a few years, with the certainty of reverting to obscurity, and, probably, to comparative |ienury, when their term of office has expired. The evil has produced fewer b .d consequences in the United States than it might have doue in any other country, and tiixe may correct it there ; for undoubtedly the Americans value intelligence highly sis any other people : only Mr. Millard Fillmoie lias been engaged in intellectual labor* Rmoiifit-t them for nearly thirty years?and we doubt if his earnings for any single year equalled the payment to a jrrima donna for one week at the Howery. or some ol the other New York theatres ; y et they deem him comj>etent for the; chief magistracy of the republic, and entrust him with the dmiiiibtration of more than one-third of their nited influence and power. Kngllth Pinptrliui In [From the Mnnrhegter Timet.

We do not now intend to nit ddle with any of the " vexed questions" which readily suggest themselves in connection with a document ot this kiud?ouch as the causes and cure of pauperism, and the best mode of managing or employing paupers. On the iiresent occasion, we shall limit ourselves to laving before our readers those facts and figures which must be the basis of &ll just speculation on such questions. limine the year ended Lady Dav. 1849. the sum actually exjiended for the relief of the poor in England and \t ales, was ?5,792,963 ; during the year ended Lady Day, 1848, the bum similarly applied was X(),180,7t<o, bhowing a <lecr<.*nt-e of expenditure in the more rec*nt year of X3b7,8U2, or jC<? >8. |>er cent. And if the increase of |*>pulation in the more recent year is duly taken into account, and the rate per head on the whole population of pauj>er expenditure is struck, it will be found that in 1848 tveiy man, woman, and child in England and Wales, p*id 7s. 14d. for the relief of the poor, while in IslM, he, she, and it, p.iid only each for that purpose, showing a d? crease of 7^d. |>er head. Or if, instead of locking at the MNMV tMmmML we look at the number of paujtrs relieved, we find still a decrease, lu ('(>2 unions, wi;h a population estimated to be near u|>on sixteen millions, on the 1st of January, 1 1M9, i<ersons were receiving relief, while in the same unions on the 1st of January, 1H30, the number relieved had decreased til,1124, a decrease which, taking into account the increase ot population, amounts to (> 4 per cent. And, finally, it m.iy be worth mentioning, that, as nearly us we can calculate, out of every seventeen persons in lingland and Wales on the 1st of January. iSoO, one was receiving ]tarockial relief, either in or out of the workhouse As compiled with the parochial year of 1*18, that ol 1815f shows u decrease of puu!>er?, and of money spent on them, which i?, so fur, satisfactory, llut our satisfaction is diminished when we remrmber thai tin- parochial year ol 1*4* is the worst we have had since the New Poor Ltw I Act came into oi>eration, in 1835. If we compare IK19. nut with IMS, hut MV Willi 1KC?, shall s^e i how little reason there is Tor sr lf-gratulatiou. 1K59. t was a year of preeminent distress, the average I i rice of wheat being higher than for any twelvei month since 1819, viz.<19-. 4d per quarier, and yet in li"S9 the rate per head of amount expended in relief to the |*>or on the ertimated population was i only 15s. Kjd. (an amount enhanced, nodouht, by i the high price of provisions), while in 1819, with wheat ruling so lo<v (comparatively) as -19s. Id., the rate per head was, as we have already stated, lis. t^d.; being an inrreas#, after ten years of the New Poor-law, of 9,j per head ! In 18J8, therefore, the di!<ease of paiijierium may l>e said to have ' reached its acme; in 1.M9, it begins to show symj*tomsof abatement, but the symptoms are, as yet, too tlight to found hopes of speedy recovery on. It may be interesting to know what proportions the very ing elements of tlnglish pauperism bear to each other, and the v/luable tables and statements in the pieseut report utford the means of B(>proximutily determining thent. We do not know what wsa the number of paupers or of each class of pauper* relieved on the 1st of January, IttSO, in all 1 the unions of Kngland and Wales j but we do | know these details for (<02 unions and single 1 parishes, with an estimated population of 15,9!<V l)< 0, a number so large as to uHord it most satisfactory index of the whole pniii>eri*m of the whole population.

The departure of the American Minister, on the 20th inst, was not followed '' by immediate hostilities, us had been anticipated at hist, ami the w hole proceedings will be submitted to Contiexa, before any eliwgentmeasures are ' adopted to enlorce the claims. N ever the less, the ' trade of Poitu^al will suffer from the higher rate of > inbUiance. as no one call foresee what course the c free and enlightened citizen of the model republic nity decide upon, and Portuguese vessels may be seized without any further nonce. Meanwhile it will be interesting to know the exact Mate of the question. Alter the proposals of the Portuguese government to submit all pending cltiims to arbitration had been rejected, they finally agreed to the payment of all demands, under protest, excep'. that for the General Armstrong, which they refused to acknowledge. They accompanied this refust-l, however, by an otter to submit (he claim to the decision of the King of Sweden, or uuy other friendly sovereign. This must now be considered the only bone of contention between the two countries, and J shall, ther:fore, lay t he chief stress upon it, after briefly touching upon the other demands. One of the claims is for $10,089, seized on board ihe Suepherd, Capt. J. Hall, on the 17th February, '] ltfi&. l>y the ancient laws of Poitugal the ship- j ment of com was absolutely prohibited, aud ren- t dered the culprit liable to capital punishment. The J pita set up in defence of the captain was, that he ( bad brought ihe money from Antwerp, and a sea- , tence was pronounced, ri the first instance, in his favor. This was appealed from, aud reversed; but t on a second appeal the original sentence was duly , confirmed, and an order issued for the immediate , delivery of the si>ecie to the ciplaiu. So far every , step was perfectly legil, and, iii the case of a Hri- , tish subject, no further proceedings could have ? been commenced without a violation of Oliver | Cromwell's treaty. It is to be presumed that the , eitizen of the United States did not then enjoy r the same privilege, or his government ought to j have interposed at once to protect him. Not with- , standing this decision, on the &M April, 1*3:5, Don ( Miguel, the dc faito sovereign, acknowledged by t the L'niltd States, was graciously pleased to order 7 a new trial. In virtue of thu royal order, the j sentence was reversed, on the ground that the t captain had violated the laws of the custom kouse j by not Manifesting the money on board his Tessel , wbeii he first arrived in the pott of Lisbon. No t doubt can be entertained that this ought to have been the decisions of the tribunals throughout, but . few will admit that the court which finally adjudged the case on the 10th .lune, 183-1, was at all ' competent to take cogui/ance of it. The l'ortiigutse government, however, have always maintained the validity of this proceeding, and ullege the uiter impossibility of any inteference on tne patt of the executive with the solemn decision of a ! court of justice. A demand was made on September 1, 1811, for $?l,(it*4 til, to indemnity the owners of the Miles lor the loutii 8 sustained by them under the folioming circumstances:?That vessel, having put into Mi7.mii I >n|ue in |<reat distress, was taken iu charge by the Portuguese authorities, and laid on shore, by which slit was so materially damaged thit it became necessary to sell her. They likewise seiy.ed the cargo, consisting of 8H0 barrels ot oil, and after obliging ihe captain to pay all the disbursements, compelled him to reship his cargo, which was declined lor Boston, on bunrd the Portuguese baik the Principe Don l'edro, chartered for ami would not iierinit him to strike a more tavorable bargain with the Levant, which might hive been take n up for a much smaller amount. The Principe i*on Pedro, on her voyage to Boston, sjirun^ a leak, an?i put into Pernambiico, where ths car^i was sold to the Portuguese Consul, notwithstanding the prott Ht of the cm plain of the Miles, and the net plot reds wete applied to the re|<airs of Ihe said vessel. The Portuguese government allege thu the Don Pedro was not a vessel of war, but merely chartered in the same manner as any other merchant vessel, and that the c.irgo was liable for gross average. They expres.-, however, their readiness to Rlund the amount paid for duties in Mozambique, as soon as proof shall be produced of such pityni'-ui having been made ; and ihey propose to sulimit the case to the arbitration of mercantile men of the city of Lisbon, nominated t>y the two governments. > A claim for compensation to the owners ot the brig Magoum, originated in what is termed by ths Minuter of the United States, the illegal condem nation of that vessel at Mozambique, on the sti*- ( picioa of having beeu cng-igrd in the slave trade at Anfiouche, as well as for the unj j-t mit>nsonin -nt ami barbarous ill-treatment of the crew. Th'-case serins to have been adjudged by the MPM triliu- J; nals, nor is a complaint urged ot any infraction of the foims of law, ao that one is not a little surprised . to hear rf an attempt to disturb a judicial settlement. Great suapicioa is thrown upon the captain . of the Magoum. by his ignoring that Angouche 1*longed to the Portuguese. However, these three > claims, though susceptible of some little doubt, might be fairly lefXto arbitration, wuh every probn bility of an equitable arrangement for the Uuited States. Hut the claim for the destruction of the General t Armstrong, by a British squadron, in the port ol | l ayal, is so coitraiyto the principles of internv l tional law. that the Portuguese government has acted widely in resisting it with all due maderatioa and (irmnrss. OB ih>-2H'h ot September, 1814, the j American privateer General Armstrong, manning l 7 guns, with a complement of 90 in?n, commanded by Captain Keid, obuined permission to take in water in Kayal, on condition that slf was to depart the followins day. An hnglish spudron, cou- ? lifting of the Plantagenet, 71, th?* Kolla, of fa guns, and the brig of war Carnation, under the . t omniandof Commodore Lloyd, appeared etl the ' W'tt in.mediately afterwards. Lieutenant K.un?et wna aent at nisht, in aa unarmed Ooai, in order to ' hoard the privateer, and her papera, hut a ' amart tire waa opened upon the boat from the U'-n- * ?ral Armstrong, before the la.iat provocation had b?en given. Two of the boat'a crew were killed { and ?even wounded. Aa toon aa thi* unjttatifiable aggreaaion waa re- " ported to the Commodore, he ordered several J ,M M hea to be armed, and to an M U th>' privatei-r.

I The Carnation waa then directed to range alongside of tlie privateer, and wi n MCCeeded in ailencins ' her, but the crew eacaped on ainre, after aetting " fire to the veaael, which waa completely deat.oyed.
