ORITICL ES. Jain Andrew JacAson !V?U?, the Tragedian. At the Broadway theatre, the drama has been at a.) times sustained In its purest legitimacy under the spirited superintendence of Mr. Marshall, who has never refused to open the portals of that temple of Thepis to native talent, eveu though the experiment has not always proved profitable to him" | self. At the close of the last season,^Mr. Neafie was afforded the opportunity of proving to his fellow ^-countrymen what real merits he possessed as a delineator of ^hakspeare's characters of < >thello? Macbeth, Macduff, and Iago?this latter part, however, a Bevere hoarseness prevented him from sustaining. Never have we seen Mr. Neafie to greater ' advantage than during the brief engagement we i speak of. His style of acting is, for the most part, quiet, addressed to a high order of intelligence, and j hence effective. All his fine qualities seemed to j have shone forth in conspicuous perfection; his i clear voice, pure conception, judicious reading, and ! audible delivery, rendered him peculiarly distin guishable in his portraitures of the soveral charac- i ten he represented. He appears to have studied the heavenly inspired bard with that intensity which enables biin now, after twelve years' experience, to pourtray that excellence which soars above the control ef ordinary capacities. Throughout the whole range of Sh&kspc&re's i dramas, there is, perhaps, not one which einbracos i so many excellent parts, or which requires artistic talent of the highest order to render the delineation effective, so much as Othello. Of Mr. .Xcatie's in- j terpretation of the much abused Moor, we can say that it was impressive without exaggeration; the : conception was correct, and the execution vigorous, | yet devoid of rant. His free, gallant, and com- ( mantling bearing in the earlier scenes, when in the lull flush of victory, and his heart given up to lore, J contrasted finely and naturally with his spirit-broken demeanor when he became a prey to jealousy, 1 and was anxiously on the watch for confirmation of | his wiongs. He spoke the passages of the text with great precision and effect. There wis a lofti- | ness of style and dignity of delivery observed by him which were particularly in keeping with the part, and when he spoke in the softness of love, the : wildness of angor, the painfulness of despair, or the herror of disgust, hi was equally true to his author and to nature. Many of Mr. Neafie's points in Othello are dhtirely new, whilst the whole was char- 1 aeterized by a thorough understanding of his anther. His address to the Senate was marked by me coiioquiai ana simple manner 01 one --nine blessed with the set phrase of speech," and he delivered it as a "round unvvrnishei'tftle," a simple relation of facts, emphasizing, occasionally, where it til required to describe the effect which his narrations had had upon the gentle daughter of Brabantio; and finally, his single outburst of feeling in the words: ? " fhe loved .ik for th? dangers I bad passed, And / loved hrr that she did pity them ' was given with a tenderness of expression which touched the hearts of all his auditors. Again, in the second act, where he meets with llosdeniona and his friends at Cyprus, the whole scene wa* rendered ene of familiar and happy greeting. The dismissal of < assio was given with good effect. I There was a peculiar solemnity of tone, a heartfelt anguish, a struggle between his love for the j man and the respect due his ofli.'o, of affection against duty, all concentrated in the simple p.?asage ''Caseio. I love thee, but nuver more be officer of mine." The whole of the great third act wa- ai o admirably performed by Mr. Neafie, and hi* delivery of the giand soliloquies displayed a mind of no ordinary powers of conception, and a pathos which spoke from the heart and to the heart. Then the terrific explosion of gathered grief and rage, when Jed to believe his I>usdemona false, wrought powerfully upon the feelings of all present. His conception is evidently the result of careful study, possetsing many distinguishing and original traits. A young and comparatively inexperienced a^tor is apt to be seduced into the explosion of passion, whilst he ' disregards the minor attributes of perfestion. Not so with Mr. Xsafie; he unites both with ease, without prodigality, or unmeaning gesture, and he has thus rendered his Othello a masterly embodiment. In reviewing the performance of this artist, we regrt" that extreme hoarseness rendered it impossible f*)r him to appear a.- lago, which he w?s announced for on the third night of hia recent engagement. We regret tbie the more from our knowledge f what hia lago wan some few seasons since, and the conviction on our minds that it could not have failed to gain him fresh laurels. Ilia reading of this diffioult part was chaste and correot, having the bearing of a frank, honest a ldier, whose aoul was overflowing with good humor. In the scenes with Uthello, he constantly preserved his habitual respect due to his general ; yet there was no cringing, but an easy sort of frankness, and that appearance of manly courage which pretended hmeUy of purpose always gives It is this bearing only which could impose upon Othello, and make him exclaim? o This fellow \s of exceeding honesty." Such couid never be the effect, if I ego should " wear his hcait upon his sleeve," and cause his "outward action to demonstrate the native act ami figure of his heart." Mr. Nettie imparted to the character of lago an air of frankness and a buoyancy, which were in keeping with the motives of the demi devil Sbakspeare drew; and his assumption of easy ban hamme and honesty was natural, and devoid of the appearance tat it was assumed. There is no meto-'lramatic effect sought by him in lago. i The public may, therefore, see that they have lost a rich treat in not being able to witness Mr. N"o itk in that character, dining his recent engagement at I he Broadway theatre" Tha character of Macbeth has been rendered, to eonK, !?ss uttia< tivc than other tragedies of the i3t J mortal f'hakspcarc. because of the in.my appalling scenes of blnoj through which ho gains the summit of his ill-attair.c<i munition ; hut tiuth of character and passion, the real moonstone of dram itic worth, is the unrivalled attribute of ."vhakspearc's mute; an i in none of the productions of his inventive genius is it more apparent or more impressively wrought out than in that of Macbeth The value of a theatrical pie e can lees bo determined by an analysis of it? conduct, than by the ascendant which itgains over the heart, and bv the s'.roki - of nature which arc inteiep? recti throughout it.

Kuril at oare her choppy Anger laying on her skinny lip was well depicted. There was no agitation on the part of Macbeth: he seemed struck with Wonder, iind not alartn: and when inquiringly saying, ' .^peak if you can?what are you P1 he acted as if he neither begged their lavors nor feared (tieir hate. The scene where he is wrought to the inurd. f of his king, his hesitation, his letting " I dare nm, wait upon I would," was strikingly contrasted with the resolute rapidity with which he treads the path ot guilt when once he enters it Hut, ucrhaps, the niost effective and artistic portion ot Mr. Nettie a Macbeth was the banquet scene, whtre he is confronted by the ghastly phantom of Hauquo's accusing ghost?it was an appalling, but un ixaggcrated piece of acting. After bis addrtss to the phantom, cone lading with * * * " llenrr. horrible shadow. t ureal mnckcy. hence;'' instead of following the apparition as if to force it frnui his pretence, he (brinks hack with horror, and scats hiibivU VP ft chair, coming his fa. j with hie robe to relievo himself from 'he sight. His terror, as he tremblingly removes his mantle to see if the speetre had vanished, was a new, a niee, and discriminating point, because, notwithstanding the firmness which Macbeth summons into his defiance of this frightful "pain'.ing of his fear," it is not to be supposed but that he labors with an inward terror while he utters it Mr Nealio >W- not overlook the essential dilf reuce that exists between the fear of doing wrong and the fear of external harm?oetween the blind animal ferocity that goads the brute, and the noble motive that inspires the rational intrepidity of man. This was a chef ii'a"vrr of artistic acting and good reading. In the scene where Macbeth and Macduff oncounter each other in battle, Mr. Neafie was equally true to his author. The tyrant, as represented by him, does not resort to that power over his life with which be believed himsel' gifted, but evincing a noble compunction for the inuuman wrongs ho had done his adversary, is desirous to avoid the necessity of adding the blood ol' Macduff to that already spilled in the slaughter of his dearest connections. It was not in the tone of a coward, but with the expression of a penitent, Mr. Neafie said to Macduff? "Of all men else, I have avoided thee: Hut get thee back; my soul is too much charged With blood of thine already." But, urged on by Macduff's- taunts and scorning, and ths predictions of the juggling fiends who had deceived him, ho boldly trusts nis fate to that inborn intropidity on which he knows he can rely, and concludes his impersonation of Macbeth with an unyielding though hopeless struggle against the only enemy bo wishes to avoid. We have thus given a review of Mr. Xeafle'a performances, unbiassed by the prejudices of private friendship, or even personal acquaintance. We speak of him as an American artist, who is a distinguished ornament to the dramatie profession, and an honor to his country. Wc do not intend to say ho is, su]?rior to others of the profession?nor would we clog his natural desire to become more perfect than he is, by endeavoring to persuade him that he is their equal. We can, hiwever, justly say, that if he has not as yet attained to great eminence, he is even now free from the mannerism- of many muster minds. Mr. John Andrew Jackson Neafie was born in the city of Now York, in Novomber, 1815, and i3, consequently, in the thirty-sixth year of his age. At an early period of his life, in very boyhood, he discovered a restless inclination for the stage, and attended some amateur performances, which took place in an old watchhouse in Spring stroet, until at length his infatuation became so great that it almost completely absorbed every other feeling. He was sent to Newark, New Jersey, to school, where be remained till he was fourteen years of age. He then returned home, and was apprenticed as a carpenter to Mr. (Jeer, father of tnc present Coroner of our city. He worked assiduously until 1839, when he determined to follow the dictutes of his earliest and continued ruling passion?the substitution of the sock and buskin for the saw and jack plane. He subsequently appeared at the Park theatre as Othello, which was creditably performed by him. He tben played in Richmond, and was afterward.* enraged at the old National, in this city, and at Niulo'ij tfafefn 1b Philadelphia, where he remained two years, and after the many vicissitudes to which aspirants to the histrionic art are exposed, Mr. Neatie, vagcillating between a bare subsistence and actual want, "buffettcd tho billows" with a persevering manliness, until he has?after a noviciate of upwards of twelve years, throughout tho States, where he has gained many admirers?reached a position at once honorable and profitable. We understand that Mr. Neafie is at present studying two new tragedies, which have been written expressly for him, ny American authors. Sketches of Brooklyn, THE CITY HALE?T1IE l'AICK?THE COI'RTS. The present structure, which was commenced in February, 18M>, and finished in May, ltttil, is locate din the most central {>art of the city, at the junction of Joralemon, Court, and Fulton streets, and \ iewed from whatever direction it may bo apj roaehed, presents a granu and beautiful appearance. The building is three stories in height, and is throughout of the Grecian ionic order of architecture?the regularity and general efl'ect of which, however, is somewhat marred, we are constrained to say, by the window? of the upper lloor being considerably less than those on the others. It i, 1H2 feet frontage, 105 feet deep, and 57 feet high to the plate. A cupola, raised over the front ccntro, is surmounted by a sculptured figure of the Goddess of Justice, to the top of which, from the ground, is 133 eet?the whole, including the entire outer wall-, being formed of pure and brilliantly white marble, from the Westchester quarry. From the portico in front, which is supported by six handsome Ionic columns, a fine (light of steps (also of marble) descends to the City Hall Park, which spreads its green grass plot s on each side of the building, extending on the front iu a triangular form, to the junction of Court, Fulton, anl Washington streets, Montague {dace and Myrtle avenue. This park, enclosed by an iron fence, in addition to the relief nlforded by its verdure, by preserving a vacant space about the edifice, secures to the spectator a comprehensive view of it in all its beiuty> uninterrupted by the interposition of bricks and mortar, encroachments which ure springing up oa all sides, with seeming'y magic rapidity. The Sail itself is thoroughly fire proof, the partition wall* being entirely constructed of brick, and substantial iron bruins supporting the floor, with brick atches sprung between tbeui, which form the floor. These arches arc laid orer with narriw Georgia pine planks, making it solid and enduring. The coat of the erection was about $130,000, and the ground about $30,000. The internal arrangements are of the most complete and convenient nature, containing, ns described in detail below, offices and rooms for all tlio principal city and county officer*; and every thing appears to combine to make "the Marble Halls," as they are termed, the centre of attraction. It is the property of toe city, rent being paid to the Corporation for tho*c portions of it occupied by the county officers, courts, fcc. THE SASIMIirr is principally occupied by the "police dcpjrtuient." jlcie are the Police and Justice Courts, presided over by Justices Truman Smith, Jobil and .lobn 11 King. The first named gentleman is termed by the statute constituting his office, "the Police Justice," and has no civil jurisdiction, except in the case Of proceedings under city ordinances, where the sum claimed does not exceed $2 30.

Before leaving tbia portion of the building, we munt rruinik, that an overnight appear* to have htm committed originally ip the fvtapbtion of cer* tain conveniences here, which aro insufficient and otherwise objectionable; but as attention has recently been called to this subject in a proper quarter, (the Mayor iu the Hoard of Health,) it is presumed some measures will bo taken to remedy the defect. TUP FIRST PLOOK contains the room of the board of Assessors, the Mayor's office, to which is attached a private one; the rooms of the hoard of Kducation, the Street Commissioner, City Clerk, Receiver of Taxes and Assessments, the Comptroller, tho County Treasurer, the County Clerk, the Surrogate's office, and THE CITY COURT OP BROOKLYN. As the constitution and powers of this court seem to be but imperfectly understood by the general public, a summary of them may be acceptable It is a court of mixed civil and criminal jurisdiction, and by a statute passed since its original institution, the terms are devoted alternately to the trials of the two classes of actions. As a civil tribunal, it is on the same footing as the Superior Court of the city and county of New York, having cognizance of all actions the cause of which arises within the city of Brooklyn, or where the defendant resides or can be served with process within those limits. The criminal jurisdiction is similar to that of the New York Court of General Sessions, extending over all crimes, short of those punishable by imprisonment for life, and committed within the city, on the indictment being cithor originally found there, or transmitted from the Court of Oyer and Terminer, or the Court of Sessions of Kings county. And as the court has the power of dispensing with the attendance of a grand jury, tne latter practice is usually adopted, with a view to save expense. This court is presided over by the Hon. John Greenwood, city Judge, who holds his office for six years, and in civil cases exercises his judicial fuuetions alone, but with whom, in criminal cases, two Aldermen of tho first class are associated, or tho court may be formed (for the latter purpose) by the .Mayor and two Aldermen. The Judge has also very considerable powers beyond those enumerated. He may grant uuw trials; and, sitting at chambers, has concurrent authority with the Judges of the Supremo Court, within the i county of Kings, and generally all the powers I whicb a single Judge, or all the Judges of the ' t 'urn is of i omuiun Pleas had, in statutory cases, under the former system. l'HE SECOND FLOOR is reucbed by a double set of iron steps from tho | floor below, one on each side of the main entrance, and here are the chambers of the County Judge, tho otliecs of the ilistriit Attorney and Coroner, the .Supreme Court chambers, the Supreme Court room, which is a remarkably line one, tit'iy-four feet square, and in which the Circuit Court and (?yer and Terminer hold their sittings, as docs also the Kings County Court of Sessions. In the centre of this floor is the " Coventor's Kooun," a spacious and handsome apartment, 65 feet by 10 leet, and decorated by portraits of all the past Mayors of the city of Brooklyn, from thediteof the charter in lsc$4, when George liall, Esq.; being president of the village, became, under that statute, tho first Mayor.ot.the city. A mil length one of General Washington occupies the centre of the west wall, over a slightly raised platform or dais, which is surrounded by a balustrade, withiu which the authorities assemble to receive deputations or visiters, and so forth. It is to this purpose that the Governor's room is now generally dovoted, though sometimes a court assembles here; it is, therefore, generally associated with ideas of hospitality ani harmony, as the contiguous one is with those of discord, being the chamber in which the Board of Common Council hold their hebdomadal discussions, I as have done also that of Supervisors of the county ' of Kings since the charter came into operation. Thw dimensions of this room are the same as those of the Suprtme Court room?that is, 51 feet square ; and its general arrangement being the same, they form, as it were, two wings, the Governor's room being the centre of the rear side of the lobby. On the opcofUy or the rooms gf the Board of Hra.th, the Health 1 Hmd and the Corparation Counsel, complete the contents of this floor. THE THIRD FLOOR was originally intended as a large drill room, and was left entirely open for that purpose, presenting an area of 156 feet by 40 feet; but now that a drill room has been provided at the city armory, in Jlemy street, that purpose has been abandoned, and partitions run up, dividing it into different uiinrtniDTitri f'niir nf which urn liv \1r Howard (the keeper of tho Iiall) and hi.- family, as their residence, and one as a store rootu. The others arc principally store-rooms for city purposes, one for fuel for the use of the county court, &c., that of the city being in a vault below. There is also a room here, tilled up for the * Hand Jury, but they never use it, as, finding tho Supreme Court ; churnfe more convenient, they always meet there. Anotiui is devoted to the use of petit jurors and witnesses, but this also is very little used. A spending a wooden stair within the cupola, we next appiouch the belfry, in which is a very fine bell com .'ining 7,(i7^ lbs. weight of metal, and so urlai.r 1 as to rerve to sound the hour, as well as to give the lire alarm. For this purpose a hammer, (;8 lbs. weight, is fixed so tie to strike the bell on the inside, producing a very loud, sonorous tone, and worked by a sort of lever in the "look-out" I above; while the hammer in connection with the clock is much "mailer, and strikes the hell on the outside, thereby causing a much lighter and totally different sound. Above the bell is the clock, the works of which are composed entirely of brass, (t was manufactured by Mr. Kogors, of New-York, at a cost of $ I .IKK). The top of the cupola, or the highest point that can be reached internally, is the bell ringer'sstation, front which a most splendid view ot the surrounding country can be obtained, there being windows on each ?of the four sides; and, by means of a glass, the most minute inspection made of almost any part of the city. Toe neighbourhood of the terries, by renson of a fall there, is the most indistinct, and it is by the intervention of the ? i masts from the .-hipping alone that the two sides of the Fast river can be distinguished. Hence, an alarm is freouentlv sounded for a Brooklyn district. when the fire is, in fact, in New York. < >n the centre pinnacle of the portico is a liberty pole, from which, on gala dayi, is displayed the federal banner, or star* and stripes, and from smaller flag-stafls, on the western and cistern ones, the nrms ot the city and State respectively Hatter in the broete. In ISM), the first projected City Hall was commenced on the preseut site?that was designed to have been a building uf a triangular form, and about half as large again as the one just attempted to be deffcribed; and would very nearly Ijavoco| vend the whole park. The absurdity appears to have become apparent, for after it was raised above the basement, und the first floor commenced, it was abandoned, and the I present edifice was a few years afterwards designed by Mr. (iamulisl King, architect, under wtiose auspices it was completed, as before stated, in ICMft.

But, <juien ' sube. In anticipation of the meeting of the Com- 1 mistioners, wo have been visited by several gentle- ? men of the long robe, from the North, who kindly 1 proffer their services to our citizens to help them q out of their difficulties. Among others, Captain

Halleck, of the army, late Secretary of State under I !ntinrnl If ilnv?nnuf m ennivn* of t ka f iiiiiilreil car t vvuw w* aav" aaaw.jcagwa v* vmv v| ?^?wiuvi V mi Dos at New Almadea, and also senior partnor in '< a legal firm of extonsivo practice in San Francisco. * How Captain H. manages to acquit himself in his a multifarious occupations, and still retain his posi- c tion in tho army, is one of the mysteries. He is * unquestionably an able man, and, among his other | labors, is said to have prepared the best report upon j California land titles that has ever been made. Ho t is a native of Weston, Oneida couuty, N'ev York, I ^ where his parents now reside, and is a graduate of 3 Union College, and also of the Academy at West t l'oint. He published a very able, and nww standard 11 work upoa military engineering, during or soon ? after his novitiate at that institution. Such are his ' merits as u mathematician that he was, at an early u age, ottered a professorship in the University of li Harvard. He nas been very frequently spoken of 1 as a candidate for tho Uaiied .States Senate, but, c like the hero of negro minstrelsy, " he is not good- f looking, and he can't oome in." 11 Captain Halleck's most formidable competitor, in " the defence of land titles, will probably be Mr. ' Win. Cary Jones. This gentleman is a native of Chillicothe, Uhio, and, if my information is correct, * is an e/i'i'e of the former reuowned United States Senator (Mr. Allen) froui Ohio, residout at that lt place. Mr. Jones married, as is well known, some few years since, a daughter of Colonel Benton. The w celebration of this marriage was one of those events w which slightly foreshadow the advent of the rnille- lc nium, and which might furnish to a wavering laith 01 no little encouragement and support; for, at that U time, might have been seen the fulfilment of the y prophecy that thc|lion and the laiub should lie down " together. The embittered hostility which had [ireviously existed, for ubovo a quarter of a century, between Colonel Benton and Mr. Clay, was, upon n; the marriage of Mr. Jones, so far mollified, that he, ' Mr. C., not only attended the eelebrution of the ' nuptials, but actually "gave away tho bride." But, unbujipily for all, tnis " era of good feeling" was but of short continuance; and there is little doubt c< that if Colonel Benton has auother daughter to be given away, there will have to be some one else to do the office other than Mr. Clay.

['he majesty of the law has been asserted, and the oul of this poor victim of unruly passions has been aunched into eternity. He was a nativo of Ireland, md had that reckless spirit, yet, at the same time, generous disposition, which nave become proverlially characteristic of his race. The gallows rere erected at the back of the Methodist ( hapel, tear to the spot where they formerly stood. The nisoner was brought to the place in charge of he sheriff, Dr. Ashe, and deputy sheriff, Mr. ilount; and precisely at three o'clock he mounted he steps which led to the drop. The deputy heriff having read the warrant, the prisoner, wh j etrayed the utmost composure, stepped forward, ind in a voice that was at enae clear, unbroken, and ven athletic, in the nervous sense of the word, gave lis confession. He said:?"Aly friends, 1 am well ware that upon an occasion like the present, it is ;encrally expected for persons placed in the uuforunate i*ositiou in which 1 now stand, to make a delarationof the motives which may have prompted o the commission of.a crime, or the mode by which t muy have been executed.

Baker then proceeded to Uy beire his hearers the particulars of his inoveuionts n the night when Coruey received the blow of his Mickey's) knife; from which statoment it appears, tat on the day of the 14th of October, he had a illiculty with u man named (as wo uudcrstood him >say) Bowman, and being aware that ho (Bowtan) was armed, he borrowed a pistol of a man iimcd Caldwell, which lie carried with him until ight, when Caldwell called for the weapon, and ion he (Mickej ) proceeded to arm himself with a tufe; and accordingly, about i) o clothe, ho went into le St. Charles Hotel and obtained it He next preceded to the El Dorado. At this time a man limed A.

He Mickey) then tapped Smith on the shoulder, and ttc mtited to pacify him, and induce him to withraw his woras; but he received the following an*er?and he remembered the words most disnetly:?" I know thee, Mickey." "Well," said e, in reply, "did you ever know anything bad bout me The other then made use ot highly uproper language. He (Mickey) did not remeuier playing that night ; but begged them to play iendly and not quarrof. He then returned to the t. Charles Hotel, and drank several times with owles and others. 11c had been there some time, hen some person proposed that they should play t cards. Afterwards, when turning the corner of le 1,1 Dorado, he met two men, one of whom was le de leased ; and one of them remarked:?" There oee two d d Texas sons of b s ; i wish I had s many of theui as 1 could kill at a picayune a ieee." Now, it was well known to all that he as an Irishman?born and raised in Irelaud; but e was confident that the imputation was intended >r him.

Slavery In California. [Frrm the Pan KranoUco Picayune, June 10 ) We have for some time past been aware of th* existence of an organisation, got up by leaders ot the democratic party in this city and elso where, the object of which is to divide the Cctate with the rie^ to the introduction of slavery in the southern pertion of the present commonwealth. Until within the last ten or fifteen days, we looked upon tho movement as the offspring of a diseased imagination on the part of a few restless, ambitious, ultra Southern disunionists, that would result in nothing but a ridiculous farce, und draw upon its projectors the contempt of the public When the sehenoo was first concocted, the character of the men who headed it warranted the belief that it could nevec disturb the peace or endanger the welfare of tho trtate. But since it has been espoused by inauy of 'he no.st enlightened and responsible men in tho democratic party?men who are tho acknowledged exponents of the principles and policy of that party? it ha* assumed a more serious aspect, and invites the rcrutiny and earnest attention of every man who has an interest in the honor and prosperity of the State. The plan was conceived in tho tirst place by a fesf resthbs spirits who cannot exist except in strife, convulsion and revolution?men to whom excite* rnent and notoriety is the breath of life. They have since been joined by the emissaries of dieunionists in South Carolina, Alabama, and Texa', wlio huve been sent here to create discord, division, and a foothold for slavery.

Tho .udiao fi rce was estimated at from 600 to 700; the Americans about 1S5 effective men. Two skirmiihe* took place; tbe first on the 21st ult., and the other on the day following. Ou tho 21st, three men were wounded, one mortally; and on the 22d, one Edward .lenks killed; Win. Nichols wounded, thought; niortully: Marion Lamb, and Kiehard Thoma% slightly wounded. The great rendevous of the Indians, is at Ked lake, at the head of the S?u'.h American, where their women and children anil hi toh are collected. The determination now id to Diuh the ind,an? to a battle, and preparations are being made foe tbat purpose, on the part of tho officers in command.
