Peaor Uarcoleta, Minister cr Nicaragua at Washington, himself admits the le gality of Mr. Fabens' title to a large tract of country in thi.-< diatrct; so there can bf no difficulty about the right of possesion, as was apprehended by the friends tf the oiigmal expedition, intending, u it did, to com mence operations under a grant from the Mosquito Kiag.

Dr. Balrri'e LNlnn-Thr Lnitt of the Coarse. The Bev Dr. Paird QnisheJ the list of hi* course of lecture* before the Spingler Institute, last n'ght. Notwithstanding the rain of the day and the muddy street*, there wtre present a good attendance of both ladies and gentlemen. The subject of last evsninj's lecture **# " Fngland and Ireland.'' The reverend lecturer opened hie discourse with a description of the natural appearances of the three pro vinces of the British empire? England, Ireland and Scotland. England was a garden spot; Scotland was much cultivated, and Ireland was, indeed, in natural biauty, the first gem of the sea. He was not surprised that the Irish people were ?o proud of her. The lecturer next recounted the ware of England, and devoted much time to the period of Ollvtr Cromwell. He thought Crrmwell had the most wonderful army of all which we have any account in history. It existed for twenty yean, and never was defeated. It went all over the empire, conquering everywhere alike. The lecturer next turned to the character of the English monarchs. Charles the Second was the most worthiest crea ture that ever eat upon a throne. George the Fourth only approximated liim. England had been blessed with some good rulers and some very bad one*. Queen Victoria, however, was an excellent sovereign. He dwelt at considerable length on London? It* public buildings, institution* of learning, great works of public mprovement, and the various features by which it la distinguished. Its population at present, he said, wa* ovtr two million*, and he had no doubt whatever that at he end of the present century it would amount to four million*. The peeuliaritie* of the Londoners, cr Cock ney*, furnished an opportunity for sonm pleasantries, and those in regard to their pronun station afforded con siderable amusement t j the aadience. They had. hs re marked, a faculty for abbreviating long word* and sometimes abort one*. Thu?, a cabriolet they called a cab; anrmnibus, a bus; the Tnamea, the Term, and so on. Among the many great advantage* which London possessed he noticed thrir park* particularly, In which Ameiiisn cities generally, and hew York especially, are to deficient He 'did not agree w.tli those who think that England had seen her p-ilmlest days, aid that the disaster* which she bad suffered in the Crime* lad hastened her decline. In his opinion she had not jet reached the height of her povrer. She had, be acknowledged, cut rather a poor figure latterly in her warlike relation*; but it was time for her to uo der stand that her power hereafter was not to be main tained by tie sword, but by the moral influence which she should exercise by her commerce, her money, and through her colonies. She has repeatedly plunged into war* on the continent that sbe might have avoided, and the present one in which she is engaged has coot her an Immenre amount of treainre, and the live* of many of her beat and braveet. He expreeied the hope that peace would be established, and he believed that in the course of a few week* he would see a long list of the moit pioBinent men in England in favor of It. There wa* a i rospect of the war terminating with the allie* obtaining three of the proportions, and he believed the* they would be very suceetsful in tbelr negotiations in the three Principalities to tbe north of the Danub* would be pnt under the joint protection of the five great Cbris tisn Power* of Europe, and a protectorate established over the Christians in the Tnrklth dominions. In a religioui point of view, England ia improving, and great moral reforms are agitating tbe peo - pie with every prospect of auccea*. For edu cat on the bad done much, a* proved by the numerous college* and Institution* of learning which were scattered throughout the country; and ia the scicnces she presented a galaxy of great name*. Yet, in every branch of Bclesce and knowledge we can, he raid, mention some who are equal to her greatest; but tbe difference ia that we have only one to their ten. Among the massei of the people in England there was too much deferenoe paid to rank? in fact rank, wealth and fashion are the great Idols of the nation. They are continually courting and looking up to the nobility, and appear to think that nothing can be accomplished with* out their patronage. He condemned the practice of al lowing commission* to be purchased in the army a* having a tendency to demoralise and break up that ef fective discipline which can oaly exist where merit and i err Ices ?A tbe passports to distinction. In patriotism, however, they were not wanting, and in this he thought they were superior to Amfrioans, who were willing to sacrifice too much to party spirit. Their orator* were not equal to ours, and he had beard the most dtstln ? gaiahed of both countries. Clay, Calhoun, Webster, and many others, he considered superior to their best. The greatest spsaker of whom they could now boast was a sinister of the established church? Mr. Hugh McNeil. In thl* connection be referred to the great orators which Ireland produced? Curran, G rattan and O'Conaell, the last of whom, however, he regarded as inferior to either cf tbe first. At the conclusion of hi* remarks, he said be would deliver a supplementary lecture on Monday even'ng, when be would refer to the other countries of Furore which were not embraced in the course. Onr Chartered Rights. TO THB EDITOR OF THI HBKALP. Ihere is a principle invclved in the late act of the Legislature, commonly called ths Liquor law, which directly invades tbe oharteied rights of the city, as thus:? By Governor Dongan's charter, of 1680, power was granted to ths Mayor to license "all tavern keepers, inn keepers, ordinary keepers, victuallers, and aQ public sellers of wise, strong waters, cider, beer, or any other aei ts of liquors by retail within the city." Governor Mcntgomerie, by charter, in 1730, gi*e power to the Mayor "to grant licences to keep a tavern, lea, ordinary, or victualling house, aad to sell wine, brandy, rum. atrong waters, elder, beer, ale, or any other sort or exc'seable or strong Mqnors within th city." Ths?s charter* were confirmed by the LegMttnre im mediately after tbe Revolution, and by the constitution i of 1777 and of 1831. Nor has tie right thus conferred been restric ted by sny amend meate to the charter; it is simply sx plained by ths Act of 13th April, 1853, in conforming th* power to be exercised :? the new arraageasent or the common Council: "The power now vested in the Mayor, A 'dei men and Assistant Aldermen, in granting aad re voking tavern licenses, together with all other powers as ?xcise commissioners, shall bo hereafter vested in tbe Mayer, with the Alderman aad Councilman representing tbe district in which the premises of the party licensed or to be licensed may be located." It is thus a question of right aad fraaohlss. and one unoa which the ferry privileges, the establishment of markets, aad ths poess*s.?a of ?eal estate, equally rests. Are we to hold none, save at the will aad pleasure of the numtraggiaal? > B. The Storm.

The spring ia uncommon!/ backward, bat in the eonne of a few days we may expect to tee the lilaci, snowballs, and ether flowers ia full bloom, and then the rush to the country will commence. At the Union Course, on Thursday afternoon, a most exciting and finely contested race came off for a parse, mile heats, best three in fire, in harness. Five horses were enter* d, four of which came to the post and started for the prize, vis. : r. g. Mag Fly, sr. g. Union; b m. Anjeline, and b. g. Jim. Grey gelding M. D. Greene waa eatere), but getting out of condition, did not appear. Unlsn, driven by Hiram Woodruff, was the favorite pre* ?ions to the start, at 100 to ,*0 against the field, bat proving a dunghill, his backer* suffered severely. He had speed enough to win, but lacked the gauie that all good horse j possess. Ang?line came lo the score first on the first heat, yet was distanced in consequence of her Irivsnmot bringing out the requisite weight, 146 lbs. Jim was also dietanoed. First Hrat ? Aogeline having won the inside, to?k the lead at the start, and went to the quarter pole in forty, cne second?, a length ahead of May Fly, I'nion third, Jim hslf a dozen lengths behind. The mare opened the gap a little do an the back stretch, passing the naif mile pole a couple of lengths ahead of May Fly and Union. On the lower turn, they nere all in a heap, and swung on the homestretch together. It was anybody's race to the drawgate ? then Union fell to pieces, and Angelina and May Fly had a struggle to the score? the former winning by a short half length.

The drivers Ming oalled to the scale, the one who handled the mare was found to be two pound short, and the heat was declared in favor of May Fly. Ft-ctnd JTeat ? May Fly and Union, the only two now lelt in the race, came up for the word at a rapt! rate, the gray outepeeding the roan, and t iking the inside be (ere they got around the turn. He wus four or five lengths ahead at the quarter pole, in forty-one seconds, and forty yards ahead at the half, in 1 :19, the roan hav ing broken up on the backstretch. The gray was now taken in hand, and nursed gently to the score, winning by a few lengths, in 2:10. Third Heat. ? the gray took the lead again, but broke up before be made the turn, andtheroui dashed on feur or five lengths ahead to the quartar pole, in forty ono seconds. On the backstretch, the speed of the gray was brought out, and he closed up nicely, the roan passing the half an open length only in front, In 1 :20. On the lower turn, the gray lapped the roan, and swung oa the homestretch fn a winning pofltlon; but the worthless

brute gave up the struggle as soon as he got In front, and tbe roan came in a winner by half a dozen lengths, In 2:42. Fburth Heat.?Th* gray, as usual, exhibited great speed, leading the roan three or four lengths to the quarter pole, and then breaking ap while in hand, fell in the rear three or four length? ? then again going up to the roan, and while winning nicely, again breaking up, thus throw. ng the race away. May Fly won by half a dozen lengths, in 2:42 The quatter was made in forty records, the half in 1:20. The following is a summary : ? Ukiox Cotitnc, L. I.? Thirhday, April 19.?

On Thursday morning, a trott'ng match for two hun dred dollars came off at the Red House, between Mr. Irvin's brown Mambrino gelding Wm. A. Browne, and Mr. Shute's blue gelling Blue Morgan. The rase throughout was well contested, anl the tine made the best ever known on that track. The course was very heavy? fetlock deep In places, with sand, clay, and water, which, together with the short turn* on a half mile track, makes 2.42? the time of the last heat? as good a> 2:30 on the Centreville. Three heats were trotted ? Mr. Irvln winning the first, Mr. Shute the second, and Mr. Irvin the third and last. The Mambrino led throughout the first aeat In 2:47. On the second beat, while leading, he slipped ia the mud, and came very near falling. Morgan p\ssed him, and won the heat in 2 :40. On the third heat, the Mambrino took tho lead, and was never headed, winning by three or fonr lengths, in 2:42. Mr. Irvin then named his horsi after the proprietor of the Red House, and offered to match > lm against any horse for SI, 000, mile heats, over the Bed House track, In two day* from that time. He Is a very large, powerful horse, about teventeen hanls high, of fine proportions, atyle and action. Blue Morgan hai been very unfortunate in his rnoee, being always over matched by hie owner. He is n fast horse at times; but a reliable 2:40 borse wi'l always beat him, notwith standing that he has madtta heat in 2:33. What added to tbe interest of this race was tbe trial of skill between the drivers? Irvin being en amateur, and Shute a pro fessional driver. Great dexterity was manifested by both parties In tbe handling of the ribbon*, and Irvin gave promise of becoming a Woodruff in time. One item of advantage to sportsmen Is, that all trotting matches at the Red House can be witnessed gratuitously, there being no charge for entrance to the grounds.

Henry Brockmaa was indicted for assaulting Thomas Wilson with a knife, under the following circum stances:? The defendant was barkeeper la Mr. Casea brook's llqior store, 80 Oliver street; and on the night of the 14tb of February, five men, including the com plainant, came fn and asked for a drink. One of them gave in payment a note, about which there en Fucu a dispute, and Caieabrook coming in at the mo ment, mace soms resiark that excited the anger of his visiters. The evideace for the prosecution here flatly contradicted that produced by the defence. The men in company with Wlloon averred that Brockman seised Wilson by tbe throat, dragged him across the counter, and stabbed him In tne back, inflicting a wound that laid him up in the hospital for twenty-nine days. On the other band, three wltaeeees for the defence declared that the five men (who were more or leas drunk) as saulted Casenbrook, and that Brockman. in attemptirg I to rescue bis bors, relze<! Wilson as described, and struck him? not with a knife, but with a tumbler. Verdict? not guilty. Cniryinga Slung SKot. ? John Kieraan was charged with this offence, under the statute tbat makes it a ftlony to carry a slung shot, or any instrumsnt in the similitude of a alung shot. On the Tth of November last. ( election day,) officer Waines saw a crowd of per son? between Sixteenth and Seventeenth streets, oocnlag towards the poll at the corner of Sixteenth street and Third avenue. The crowd pre-sed on, surrounded the 1 poll, and two men, according to tbe evidence of the offi cer, stooped as if to seize the ballot box. One of thorn i men was Kieraan, and him the officer Immediately ar- i if sled. The crowd followed and evinced a disposition of attempting a rescue, bnt the policeman succeeded in carrying off his prisoner. On the way to the station i houie Riernan dropped from beneath hie cost n heavy pliable whip handle, *i'h about a pound of lead at one end. Mr. Holmes, c , ol for the prisoner , contended that this instrument. *?? net a slung shit, or similar to n slung shot, within the meaning of the statute, whi:h mint be strictly construed. Wltnossss were examined for tbe defenoe to show that when Kieraan was bendin* over the ballot bouaa described by the policeman, he I was forced InUyThet position by the crowd. The prisoner'* brother deposed that ho was a driver, an l owned ? (table, and that the Instrument alleged to he a slurg shot was a whip, ueed by defendant for upwards of a yi ar. Several witnesses gave the defendant a char acter (lor peaoeabloneis and eobrioty. Verdict, not fekty. Am/rax* Paw Mill Dwrr*orx?.? The large payer mi l at Niagara FaEs, owned by Mr. B.

CCBIOCB CAS* or 1L 1.10 EI) FRAVD IN WALL ar*K*r ?A COHriDEKOa KAN AT WORK? BUCCWBFUL BIJK QLABY AND UOBBEBY OP JEWELRY? ALLKKD OBAND LABCBNY? RECELESd DBIY1NO. A somewhat curious and intricate cu? of alleged fraud came to light yesterday afternoon, at the Chlet 's office which has caused a great deal of excitement ameag the banker* and lawyers of Wall street. The circumstance* of the case, as far as we hare been able to ascertain, are these:? On the 27th ultimo, the banking house of H. M. Connor, of Charleston, B. C., sent on a draft enclosed in a letter to John W. Downing, of Chestnut street, Phlla dtlphia, payable to hi? order on the Bank of the State of New York in thto eity. By some mischance the letler was, aa is suppoeed, directed to New Ycrk instead of Philadelphia, hence the document read "John W. Down ing, Chestnut street, New York." The postman, in whose charge the letter was placed on it* arriral in our Post Office, left it at No. 10 Chestnut street, in thi* city, where a coopei named Jobn M. Dowsing, reaided. This individual wa* not at home when the letter arrived, and when on returning, war. a* may be supposed, moch astonished to find that a draft for such a large amount should hare been sent to him. Not knowing exactly how to act under the circumstances, the New York Downing went to Mr. Bnlkley , lawyer, of Wall street, who, as it ia alleged, advised "John M. Downing" to draw the money from the bank and deposit it la the hands of a responsible party for safekeeping. Accordingly the lawyer and he went to the Bank of the State of New Yoik, where Mr. B. identified Downing a* a client of bis, and Jobn M. Downing drew the amount specified in the draft, endortlng It at the time "John if. Downing. The paying teller, It seems, did not pay particular at tention to the hand tndorsed, or else hs oould have easily discovered that there was something " r on I? i ??r the draft was filled up in the name of "John W. Dawn ing." while the endorser's name was "John M Down ing." Having procure.! tie money from the bank, It was deposited In Mr Bulkley's hand with Mr. Kiggs, banker, of Wall street, where it remained until yester day. The Philadelphia Downing, hearing that a drift had been tent him by the ChirlesUn bankcri, mado soma inquiries, and fouad to his aurpr se that It hid | already neen cashed and endorsed at the Bank o. tlie ; State of New York. Not reHshiug the Uea <>rther? boin^ two Downlngs in the field, word was sent to this c.ty, | stating that tbeie muft bs tome awn ward mUtake? , that the genuine Downing had not even seen the dratt. , This, ot courte, induced the officers of the bank i to overhaul "drafts paid," and upon clo?ely ex aminlni? the Downing one, sure enoujh John \Y. Downing had not endorsed the do;um?nt, but John M. Downing had, and he had got the moniy too. In order to clear up the difficulty, raeours* was had to the Chief of Police. ?ho placed the matter in the hands of his experienced detective, Mr. K?efe, for tolutlos. This officer, who is weU experienced in Intri cate bank ca?es, at once proceeded to the bani; in Wall street, and there learned that Mr. Bulkley was the party whom Downing bad called upon to prove his Identity, j IToceeding to the office of Mr Bulkley he learned upon questioning the clc rk in h<* office, that Downing'* dir*<-- j tion (he w** then at work in New Jersey} could be ob- , talced at 74 Cortlandt street. Here the desired infor- , mat Ion was, with'llttle trouble, obtained, and the officer , at once started for a snail bamlet about five milu* back , from Jersey City, where Downing was faund. He was immediately conveyed to New V ork, where he rtla el the whole story nearly a* above. He wa* taken to tU? Chief'* office and locked np for ixamination. Officer Keefe, on receiving information from Downing as to the place where the money wa* deposited, went to Bigg s I office and informed tbem that the deposit leit w,tV?ieIn , did not rghtfmlly belong to the iepMitor*, andflhad* the banker promise that he woald not deliver the pro pertj up If called for. Mr. Bulkley wa* next called upon when he explained how matters were, and announced himself quite willing to deliver up the money. It was accordingly drawn by Mr. B., and by him handed to Downing, who delivered it into the officer's possession. The package wa* subscquent'y delivered over to the offi cersof the bank, on their giving a receipt for the same. Justice O*born is of opinion that a fraud was intenae.l on the part of the pri'on-r, and accordingly the matter will come up before liim, i a the Mayor'? office ts day, for , Investigation. The confidence game h'i? again been successfully ; piacticed cn a countryman, who saw the elephant at the 1 extravagant price er nit a cent of which ' s he likely to recover. Mr. Henry Kinney, of Steuben c?unty, N. Y., wa* made a victim in thi* case. Pa*sing through one of the thoroughfare* of the Fifth ward, on Thursday night, about 10 o'clock, be unfortunately became a:- I qualnted with some clever sharper, rejoicing iu the J cognomen ef Capt. Conely, who from his manner and general appearance, soon made Kinney an eaay victim. i Although the countryman bad never had the pleaiuie of the Captain's acquaintance before this, so irresmtihie wai the force of the latter'* argument to th? contrary, that at last the verdant came to the conclusion that he , had seen him somewhere before. This point gained, the next kind of manoeuvring was to ge: Kinney into an | oyster saloon In Church *treet, where, a'ter partaking of sundry drinks and indulging In a couple of dozen on the half shell, he became rather drowsy, and ecoMnted to exch.nge coats with the Cpt.ln, forgetting at the I iroo that hi* $903 wa* In one of the pockets. The m.ll tarygentof course made his exit as soon a* possible, telling Kinney t? wait for him. After waiting *oms time for the return of his qnondana friend, he catne to the conclusion that he had been *wlndled in the moit scientific manner possible. The ass MAf0. (u tho wa* obtained, but no clue could be obtained to the whereabouts of the Captain. Burglaries In the upper ?*rds of the city are Vcom.og quite numerous of late. On the afternoon of Wedn*s | day, while the family of Mr. Wm O'Neil, of 12? East j Sixteenth street, were abeent, some burglars entared the premise* by means of fai.e keys, and after locking the door* inside so as to prevent any interruption, pro ; cceded to ransack the bureaus, closet* and trunk*, and | Mireeeded in a very ?l?ort space of time in getting to- > getlier between four and five hundred dollar* worth of gold and silver watche*, gold chains, diamond rings and I hreaatnins with which they male a succesiful escape. Mr 0 &eil! It f eem?, wa* ab-ent in Connecticut on bus 1- j tess, and bis wife happening to leave the.premlae* for a few moment*, ?ome thieve* Unk the ocjt?ion to com- i mit the *uccer*ful operation. A complaint was made before Justice 1'earcy. at the Second W^rict Polie Court, who has given the case considerable Ration. Yesterday three men named l.eorge hobertsoof Daniel i Kellev and Stiiuuel Fibber, wll of whom are well known to the police, were taken into cuitody by officer Dunn, of , the Seventeenth ward poHce, on susptiion of being the burglar* who -ucceeded in carrying off 0 Neil s Property. , Home of the *tolen jewelry was found in the po*set*ion of the prisoner*. They were committed for examination , by the magistrate. i Two pereona, named William and Thomas (.alilley, were brought tefore Justice I'earcy charged with, on the 18th in*t., burgle rloualy entering the stable* of An drew Hay, No. ?4 Ninth Rvenue, and taking from the premises a brown horse, valued at $60, tie property of William Bell. There seems to be some copartnership , .tiftimltv about this matter. The accused admit taking tffSSri tbHtablee. but allege that they were as much entitled to the ownership of the an:mal M Wm.
