TO Till KIiITOR OF THE HERALD. The notice in your paper ? few days since, of the Hon. James A. Bayard, recently elected Senator of the United 8tatea from the State of Delaware, contaiaa two ?tatement* whleh demand coma notice. The first l?, that he la the author of a work oa the constitution of the United States. This I* an error; the work in question was written by James Bayard, Esq , a member of the Philadelphia bar. Your artiole further states, that the Bayard family of Delaware, claim to be descended from the Chevalier Bayard, of France, " the good knight, without fear and without repreach, " as he was sailed by his contempo raries. Perhaps they do make this claim and perhaps it is well founded, for one s ancestors, traced back a few ceaturiee. multiply greatly , but the name proves rothing of the kind, for the name of the Chevalier wae Pierrt au TtnaA, an J he] aided 'It Hayard, , from the chateau at which he was born, just an ajobo Bmith might now style himself John Smith, of Smithvllle. ? The itfeot the Chevalier make* no mention of hi* being mairu 1 Th* name it the Baywaril lumily of Brotlaud, wae corrupted to lleyard. ana from them our families in the United Statu ar? probably derived. To suppose that the name Bayard Is a proof of di'soeat fro.u the Chevalier, is about as reasonable a? to oonoluJe that every Mr. York ia descended from a Duke of York.

Tilted Ntatea Circuit c<mrt Belere the Hon Judge Betts C'HAllOK Of HOMICIDE ON BOARD OF A MAN-OF-WAR. Jaw. US. ? The United States vs. Frederick fi mfrion, itulictrd at Edward Francis.? The prisoner. wh? is a young man, very small in stature, and apparently not more than 19 or 20 years of age, was given In charae to the jurv, for the homioide of Edward Reed, and the United State* District Attorney stated the oase for the Jroreoution. The prisoner is Indicted by the Orend ury for an assault with a dangerous weapon en a seaman named Reed Tbeaot of Congress provides that any person committing an assault with a dangerous

weapon, on the high sea a, shall be punished by a fine not exceeding $8,000, and an imprisonment of not more than three year*. The prisoner was an ordinary seamen on board the U. 8. frigate Brandywlne; she was lying near Montsvldeo, about five miles from the harbor. The prisoner, It appear*, had an altercation with a man named Reed, in the month of May, I860 Some witnesses state that Reed llrat struck the pri soner; but in this the testimony conflicts. Others say he merely shoved him. It will appear in evidence that, when the conflict oommenced. Francis struck Reed with a kniie; they both fell upen the desk, 'and. to the horror of all on board, they found Reed a dead man There were three wound* inflicted on him, (one in the region of the heart ) and the unfortunate man died in about five minutes. He presumed that the defence will be, teat the prisoner inflioted the injuries in his own defence; but it would appear that he was not in any danger of bodily harm, as Reed had no weapon. There is no act of Congress under whloh the prisoner could be indioted for mur der, or the Dtstriot Attorney should have felt it his duly to have preferred an indictment for that crime. Henry W. Kelly wa* examined by the District At torney, and deposed.? I am 18 years old; I am a na tive of the Unl ed States; I was one of the crew of the United States ship Brandywlne in May last; I was in the capacity of landsman; I shipped m November of the preceding year; the llrandywine is nman of war? a frigate with 40 guns; I know the prisoner at the l>ar; I knew Kdward Reed; I was present at the commence ment of an affray between the prisoner and Reed; It was on Sunday evening. 19th May. last y.-*r; I was sitting en the gun at the time; Reed ran to the pri soner and said. " I wish you would keep my name out of your mouth,'' and at the same time gave Franols a shove; Francis then called him a son of a b? , and Reed gave him another shove; Franois th*n said, " you I'll seeycur liver before I die; Reed clinched Francis, and both fell over the grindstone, and that's all I saw of it; there bad been a previous difficulty between them; Francis charged Used with owing him $2; and Reed knooked him over the gun, and gav<> htm a slap in the face; Francis drew a knife at that time; Reed died in about five minutes alter he reoeivsd the injuries on the 19th May. Cross-examined by Mr. Bebee. ? Reed was a large man; (the prisoner Is very small) did not res a knife with Francis before Reed knocked hiu over the grind ?tons. James Murray deposed to the altercation between the prisoner and deceased, and that he saw him put his hand behind him and take out his knife; they tall to gether, but witness did not see the blows given Cross-examined ?This occurred about 7X o'olock, on tks second deck; It was quite dark; there were no lights where they were. A witness named Percento deposed to the same facts; took Reed to the main hatch ladder. uross-examlned ? Reed was beating Francis at the time; he was knocking his head against a roller; Fran cis was a mere infant In the hands of Reed; Heed was giving him n dangerous beating; the prisoner was j* are ow 1<mii1 lbs Branuy win* and waa m ?(?let and Inoffensive lad A witness named .Reynolds gave similar testimony; the prisoner has been in confinement since May, 1850. Thomas II Powell testified to the scuttle, and to his having picked up the knile; (identifies the knife pro duced; It U the ordinary clasp knife used by sailor*;) Read wa* the larger man by many degrees; when they fell together. Francis was under Heed Dr Bache, surgeon of the fleet, deposed that he saw the body oi Reed, one wound wan over the reg ou of the heart, cutting through the cavity into the apex; the second wound transfixed the liver; and the ither was on the left arm. cutting it to the bone On cross- exsmioation. the witness said he did not think the wounds could have been inflioted by th< de ceased fal ing on the prisoner while he held the knife open; the wounds were deep, the knife apparently having been driven up to the hilt For the defence. John A Barclay was called: and deposed that he was kept here a* a witness for the prosecution; was within six feet of Reed and Francis at the time of the occurrence; there was no one nearer to them, Reed had frequently aggravated Francis, who was a peaceable man and a favorite on board . has not the rligbtest doubt but the wounJs were inflioted by the struggling of the parties and tke two falls which they had. District Attorney? How much money has Francis given yen lately' A. Fifteen or twenty dollars. Q.? When did he give you the last* A.? The day before yesterday. ToMr. MerreU-De did not give it? he only loaned It to me, Mr Bebee addressed the jury on behalf of the pri soner, contending that the evidence in the case went to show that Francis held the knife merely for the purpose of deterring Ke?d from assailing him. and that ! the Injuries were Intllctud by the falls. This be be- | lie red, xotwitbstanding what the doctor hid sworn to. ( The District Attorney summed up on the part of the people; and the Judge charged the jary, strongly condemning the use of dangerous weapons, even lor self defence.
