We have received Intelligence from Salt Lake City that tbe chief of the Far Vent Utaha hag delivered up several of hia tribe who were concerned in tbe mnrder of Capt. Gunnison, U. 8. A., Mr. Kern, of PUladelphia, and others, on the Sevier river, in October, 1868, Shortly after the arrival of CoL Steptoe in Utah that officer made a demand on Can Osh for the surre nder of all thote concerned In the aflair. According to Indian usage, that chief offered to give np man for man; and Col. Steptoe, out of regard for the defenceleea Mormon settlements in the Par-rant country, agreed to receive aeven Indiana for the white men killed. Matter < being finally arranged, a party, conbiating of Major Reynolds, Surgeon Wirti and Lieut. Alia ton, of the United State* Army, and Major Beit, Indian agent, wth twenty-three artillerymen, started from Salt Lake City on tbe 21th of February to receive the murderera, and reacted Fillmore City, the capital of Utah, the headquarters of the Par vant tribe, ?nthe28tli. Immediately on his arrival, Mijor Rey nolds formally demanded .he surunier of aeven men. CanOeh was very peaceably inclined, and said that he intended to fulfill his promise. Tne aoldiera were then dispxed so as to be ready (or any emergency, and in a few hours the whole Par- vant tribe, eonaiating cf about sixty warriors, entered the main square cf Fillmore, bringing with them the Individuals that were to be given up. Can- Osh then turned over to Major Rejnolds four men, a sqatw who had helped to ?trip the dea?, and a child about three years old. Major Reynolds refused to receive tbe child, but took charge of the men and the aquaw, stating to Can Osh, through the Interpreter. Mr. Bean, that he slill held him responsible for the delivery in Salt Lake City of the remainder. While tbe prisoners were being turned over, thinga at ore time won- a very serious aspect, and it was only by the oooIp&h and well-timed prec<Lut'ocs of Major Rey nolds that an outbreak was prevented. Nar i ant, a chief of the Par-vants, and second to Can-Oah, appeared on tbe ground. rifle in hand, and with bis face bUcked ?with war-print. Mounting a pile of woo I, he signified his dissent from the proceedings, an 1 his desire to ttgat. Once he raised hli rifle to fire at the Unitei States olli ctrs, but. tetieg two or three rifled rea'ij tt> bring him down, hia c emonstratlona of hostility ended in emptv bravado . Major Reynolds, accompanied by Can-Osh and Ms wife, retained to fc-'ult Lake City with tbe prisoners on the 3d of Masch. 1hey will be tiled by the court at Nephi, the county teat of Millard county, whtre the murder was committed Some singular developementa were obtained from the Indiana and others about Fillmore, going to show that the Mormons were indirectly concerned in the Gunnison massacre, n- was originally suspected. The Mormons have all along tniitn every opportunity to impress upon tne minds of tbe UtabB that the M< rmona and Americans are two distinct people, and these Indie ne, in their con ?creations with Major Hunt, tbe Indian Agent, frequent ly spoke of tbe Mormons and the Americana. They alao made inquiries whether the Americans or the Mormens were the more powerful nation. Now, it aplasia that some three years ago, a Mormon wantonly killed a Utah Indian, and the Par-vant tribe, to which be belonged, immediately tbrea'ened revenge on the first party ot Mormona they found in the moun tains But ibe bihhops of the neighboring towns in formed the Indians that the man who had excited their hostility was an American, and cot a Mormon, (which was false;) and consequently tbe Par vanta fell upon the innocent party of Gunniaon; and, as is well known, but four escaped. This is but one example of the scheming and duplicity of the Mormona, and strongly Indicates that they antici pate making use of tbe Indians at some futuro day, should tber,< He a rupture betwei-n the two nation i of tbe "Moimnna" and ''Americana " M was reported that Ar-rap?-can would probably be elected chief of the Ute tribe of Utaha, in place of Wah-ka ra. who cied lately. Still later advices inform ns that tbe Par-vant prison ers were tried at Nephi. fhe mist conclusive testimony was given implicating them in ths murder, but the jury found them i;uilty only of manslaughter in the second degree, and they were sentenced to three yetra impri sonment. Several mem -era of the Mormon jury ac knowledged that they had received instruct ois from Brigham Yoiwg what verdict to give. It is welt known that the oath of a Mormon In tbe church la ptra mount to all other obligations. The Hon. Judge Kin ney, after the verdict, declared that it waaindlrec. ?violation of the evidence adduced. Tae prin cipal object of Colonel Steptoe' s expedition *?. to obtain satisfaction for th* mnrder of Gunnieoa'j party: but the Mormona, in order to defeat this pur pose, have ?cted in a manner that can only be accounted for by their intense hatred towards tbe general govern ment. The above information comes direct from an officer who was present at the tine. Still later intelligence, np to the Slat March, informs ns that tfce Indian prisonera santenoed to three years' impritonmen t, made their escape from the new jail, a few miies from tbe city. The murderers of Gunnison have thus entirely eluded the hands of juatice. Thus end a Col Steptoe'a expedition. The Colonel waa sent out to Utah expieasly to obtain redress for Gunnison's mur der. He did all that lay in his power, but we have <eea that every effort has been frustrat-d. Great exjitement prevails in Salt Lake City, and if the "Gentiles" were atrong enough, Brigbam Young would be lynshed. We learn by the same advices, that Col Steptoe hai declined tbe nomination of Governor of Utah, and that Judge Kinney, Chief Justice, baa been offered the ap pointment He has stated that he will accept. Col. Steptot 's command leaves Salt Lake City on the 5th J piil for Rush Valley, from which camping plaee they atart for California in the beginning of May. Army Intelligence. THE SIOUX EXPEDITION THE DEPARTURE FOB THI SIOUX NATION. Oor advice* from Fort Leavenworth, Kansia Terrlto ry, are to tke 8th <nat. A letter to gentiomen in thia oity, dated the Oth inrt., says:? Four companies of the Sixth Infantry are encamped near the Fort Thor are destined soon for Fort* Kear nay and Laramie. One eompan/ (C) to Laramie, and A, H and K coapaniea to Kearney . Some recruit* will go along, and perhipe a battery of artillery. The weather i* very dry. and the (eras* com*s up slowly. Genirai Uarnev who ia assigned by thW War Depart m?nt to the command of the 810 ax expedition, arrived at Fort Leavenworth on the "th in?t., to laape-rt the troops at that point, preparatory to their movement to the ttonx Nation. The troops at thatplace, on the 8th. were the With infantry, under the comtntnd of Colonel Cady ; two iqnadrons of the Second dragoons, with Col. Cooke aid Major Ho We; and Capt Howe's Li(ht Artillery battery. The Second Infantry, under command of Oen. Hitchcock, were en route to Fort Pierre, a po.nt some three hundred miles from what may he called the head quarters of the Sioux. It is expected that one of the new cavalry regiments will jon the command at Fort Leavenworth before active operat'ons shall commence. The Sixth Tn'antry and Howe'n battery woretj Ifave the Fort abont the 16th inst., and move directly to Fort Keaxney, which is about two hunlred mies from Fort Leavenworth.

MOVEMENTS OF TROOPS IN NEW MEXICO. A letter from Fort Fillmore, New Mex'co, dated April 7, to a citfi en of Baltimore, *aj s the Baltimore Sun, has been submitted for onr use. The following extract will prove interesting to many of onr readers : ? Colonel Miles haa been ordered oat on a three months' scout in the earn* Indian ooontry ia which Capt. Staun ton waa killed. His command is two companiee of infan try and one of deegoons, amounting to two hundred men. The lafaatry companies are commanded by lieutenants, both their captains being abeent. ihe force went out on tho 20th of March, and expected to have plenty of flght Ing; tat on arriving at Dog Canon, en tho 3d April, they found there the whole tribe of Apsches, numbering about 300, with their women and children, excepting two ?mall bands now In Tsxaa. A c. nncil was held, aad the Inflate Mid they wanted peace, and promised that they ?would not kill or rob any more, nor molest the foroe in its march. Th* Col. told them he could not make peace valesa the entire band wa* present, au l not toon without the consent of the commander of New Mexico. General Garland, to whom the proceeding* o' the council were re potted. All the men w*re well.

There he will be joined by two handred more troops under the oommand of Mqar Carle to a. of the dragcons It is expected that the eamp will be changed to a fort, but it la npoertaln whether Colonel Miles or Major Carle ton will have command. This will be determined on the lfith, when General Garland will visit this plaee. One of the Infantry companies came from ?1 Paso, Texas, forty fire miles from here. When It marched op, one of the lieutenants, who wta lately married, was aocompant d by his wife, who insisted upon accompany ing the fcouUcg party.

Rio de Jajtkbo, kUreh 20, 1865. Sib? Having perceived by an abstract fr m the Provi dence Journal, published in the New Yore Herald, that the circamitaooe of the American schooner Bay City having been obliged to heave to and be overhauled by her Britannic Majesty '? cruiser Bonnilla, baa been put before the pubiie in a manner to produce the la prei sion that that act was performed in a mere spirit of wanton outrage ; and as that is what Capt. Warale, of tbe Bay City, endeavored to do here, on her arrival, and in consequence of my refusal to sign at the Unite states Consulate, the declaration of outrage, I hav Fullered imprisonment and much persecution, to the grtat detriment of my health. I shall proceed to give jou a concise statement of what actually took place be tween the Bay City aud the British cruis*r ABf-TRACT FROM A LOO ON BOARD THE BAT CITY. Tiisdav, Aug. 29. ?4 A.M., being in lat 23 tl), lou. W 40, (on a vojaje to Sao Franol?oo,) bora up for Rio Janeiro, la contequenoe of tbe rudder not being in a sate stale. Widwesday August SO, aea time 30m. H M., lat 2318, Ion 41. ? A brigantine bove in sight about a point un the lee bow. dutant about nix milei. running before the wiud; stortly afterwards she wm observed to haul ber wind and bear up towards ui>, thowing the Englith ensign at her peak; Alter waiting a sufficiently reasonable time, and no reajonaa or acknowledgement made on board our vestal, a b'aok gun wat fired from tbe "crigantina;" Caniain Wardle then oame on deck, and awore that ha would hoist nocolors; the brigtn tica. evidently ? Britiih oruieer, coiitinued to bear towardi us, firing at inter>al> three more guns, until abeam of ua, dii'ant two milet, wben she firea a shotted gun, the ihot falling short of nt about a quarter of a mile; our orew be came very much excited at thin, and gave atteranoa to some esprettinnt about tbe colors being hoisted requeiting to know if Capttin Waidlewitbed the Englii'>men to sink nt, or etuis tome one to be bnrt; I repeated these things to Captain Wardle, lie replied that he wonld he damned ir he'd be ruled by a Limejtiieer, and tbat if the eruiter fired into nt it would be the hekt voyage he or any of ut made; tome twenty minutct patted when a< other ihot wat filed; I told Captain Wardle it would bo better to show onr oolurt, for in caae anything should take plaoe tha crew would go acaintt him, a< they now were much inclined to display the flag without awaiting orders Captain Wardle appealed to beeome much excited at tbia and turned very pale. He nodded his nsaent to the showing of our oolort, six gum having already been fired by tbe British craixer. However, on endeavoring to heiat tha entign the halyard parted, anu ereihis could be remedied tbe crulaer, now in our wake, bout abip and while in ttayt fired another gun, (tho eevonth), which coming rather olote the man at the wheel ran for ward. On tending another in bis plaoe Captain WarJIo gave orders to put the helLt up, and wearing ahip we rai down to >ho brigantlne. On oemlng up to ber we rounded to tbout two or three cablet lencth to windward, with our jib ahe? t to windward, but we did not bring our vessel to the wind, continuing to run aome two points off. Making a course atrwait tbe cruiser's bow, we were hailed aud order ed to heave ta. Captain Wardle replied, auing the com masder of the cruiser what ha wanted. "Want you to heave to." Capt Wardle said he wat hovo to. The brigantiae bepen to drop attern, when the fired another tbot anroat our bows, upon whiob, and not till then, did Captain Wnrdle iaeue ordera to heave our veaael to; tbia waa done at onoe; we were afraid t ailed from tha brigantine, tht commander informing ua tbat ha waa going to tend hit boat on board, wbicb be pra-ently did, Capt. w. not suffering ua to allow bim the nenal civilities of a ahip'a gangway. On oomlug on board, tbe commander of tbe cruiaar wiehod to know who was tbe captain on hoard of ua; Captain Wardle replied he waa lbs man. "Why did you not hoist your colors): It would have laved ail this trouble. Uur nation la at war, and we bave been informed that Russian privateers have been fitting out in the Gulf for tbii< coaat. Vour singular conduct h aa lad me auapect you may be ona of them, and consequently I oucnot consider you aa Amerloana until I sec your papers." Caot. Wardle then said, '? What are you blowing about? I have been in tho. navy as well as you, and know all about it. I only wiah you hai fired into me: it would have been the best voyage I ever made. However, yon now see my flag; gat out of rny vessel aa soon as you oan." The English captain aaid, " Tcu must be drunk, sir, to carry on so, Had it been any otW nation, yon would have had a in a ft taken out of you ; but I waa afraid of hurting some poor fellow who would be blameleaa. I .refrained Iroro throwiag my shot aboard of you. I now must see your paper", captain." Tbe papers' were produced. Capt. Wsrdle said our veaael was in a sinking condition, having two butts started, and the men all fagged out at tbe pumps, ao tbat he had something else to do betide hoist ing eolers to every one: tbat be would report him (tbe Eng lish offloer) to tbe Admiral in Kio. Tbo knglishmnn said he - onld enter the affair in our logbook, if he wished it, which was done, as follows:? Auoi'ST 22, 1855. Boarded sohooner Bay City, after firing tour shots wide of ber, to induce her to heave to, and allow nt to close, which I was desirous of doing, suspeoting her to be a Russian piivateer under American colors CHARLES WEEKES, Lieut commanding. Tbe Englishman said, "I will give you anna men to reach port with. Captain Wardle replied. I den't want yonr men. My men are pild for work, and they have got to do it until I reach ptfrt." The English captain pent his men to assist us to make tail, and then left us. This cruder l.ept company with ns until we reached Rio de Janeiro, actually thinking we were in a sinking condition, which a reference to the log will prove not to bave been the ease. Tbe d?y alter boar.lixig us we were again bailed by the commander of the cruiser, Inquiring if he could render us any ais, stance, and, should any change taae place thr >ugb the night, to abow a light, and he would come to ns Nothing of further interest occurred before our arrival in Rio. Tbisls a plain statement of wbat took place between the Biitisb crui.-tr Bonnilla and our vessel. A similar circumstance took place shortly after leaving remain fcuco, with tbe United States sloop-of war Decatur, Captain Wardle refusing to show hia colors, although they were bent on some time before we spoke bim, and barely ecn&entingtn bave them displayed from the miz zi n ripe ng. No guns, however, w?re flraJ. I make no comment on the alfair between tbe Bonnilla and our v?smI, but leave it to the judgment of whoever reads this account, whether there is the slightest ground for supposing tlat tte commander of tbe cruicer perpe trated any ontrage or not. I will merely remark, that apparently Capt. Wardle had great hopes of getting "bit:" so tbat a gocd claim might be instituted, which would pay handtome'y, and that he evidently had hopes of obtaining that result on arriving here, as soon after our ariival at tbi? part, be ordered myself and tbe se cond mate cn ,<bor?, to tbe Consul, where we weie re quested to sign an indictment of outrage against Captain Weeks, of the Bonilla, the refasal to sign which has been tbe cause of much trouble and unjust suffering to my self, as I can prove should occasion require it. I trust you will enlighten those who may be misled by other statements of the affair; and believe me. yours grate fully, THOMAS MACLEAN, Mat* of sohooner Bay City. The Committee on Railroads BFMONSTKANCE AGAINST THE HARLEM BAILBOAD COMPANY. A meeting of tbe above committee, which is com posed of five members of tbe Board of Aldermen, was held l&at eve ning in the chamber of the board at the City Hall. Oaly three of the cocaroittee were preaent, vie? Alderman Moses, Chairman, and Aldermen Voorhli and Drake. A geodly number of property holder* and other intereated part'ea were in attendanoe. The remonstrance of the citixana and property holdera to the Mayor, Aldermen and Commonalty, agalnat the Harlem Railroad Company, occupied the whole time and attention of the committee. Ti e object of this remonstrance is to prohibit the u*e of hteam below Forty-aecond street. Upon Aid Voorbih stating that tbe committee atood reaoj to hear tbe arguments of any one praaent, either for or againat the Harlem Railroad Company, Mr. Whit lock, residing at Murray Hill, and representing property holdera in U at vieinity. arose and delivered a long speech whloh lasted nearly three quarters of an hour. He was epposed totthe steam coming belo* Forty -sesond street, on the ground that It waa destructive to proptrty at Thirty second street, where the steam ia at present cut oil; that it waa inconvenient to persons residing in that vicinity, from the *moke, and noise and clatter cf the cars in passing; and that, finally, it would materially benefit the Ccnpany itself to alter their arrangements regarding the steam, aa proposed by him (Mt Whit lock.) Ihe Company had not fulfilled their con tracta with the Common Council. In Desember, 1851, a resolution was adopted by the Mayor and Common Council of this city, permitting the New York and Har U m Railroad Company te reduoe the grade of the Fourth avenue, on the east side, between thirty-second and Thirty-fourth streets, to a level with their track, etc . on condition tiat they at their own expense widen said avenue twenty feet on the west aide between aaid stieets, and cause the land for this additional width to be ceded to the Corporation of the city of New York aa a part of said I'our'h avenue. The company, the speaker said, availed themselves of all the privileges anl immunities granted by thla resolution, but failed to fulfil the otter conditions. Murray Hill ia a beautiful spot, si tuated in a delightful location, and mush sought after by our merchants, froaa '4* healthful position. Many persons, desirous of retiring from business, were ready to build in that plate, if tbe horrible nuisaoce of tbe steam ecginea was removed. He, the speaker, waa sure the company would be benefitted by it. They owned several block* a ahort distance above, where they oould locate their depot, and where probably they might remain un disturbed for thirty 3 ears cr more. Why, then, not do so. instead of spending moro money uselessly, as they a ill certainly after two or three years be compelled of necessity to do so? Fx Alderman Mott then followed, going over pretty mush the eame gr.mnd aa tbe first siH-a^er, and espous ing the lame alee of the aueation. He pitches into the Common Council in a t lashing manner, sajfing that some member* bad been invited by tbe Barlem Railroad Company to a sumptuous cinner, and hinting that they bad been in seme measure prejudictd In their favor on that account. He knew, however, that there weresotM men over whom no d'nner or Buppr, bowver tumpta ous or magnificent, could exercise the al'ghteit infla ence, and in their bands he placed tbe matter, trust ing ia their good sense end fld-lity to the interests .ef tsepeopie Alderman Yoorhi* et!d that it wai grow'ng late, and aa he felt torn what indieposed, he moved that tie com mittee artjoarn. He s?ld that if there were any other gent'emen who wished to express their sentimncts in connection, tbey would be heat'* on some future ecea s'oa IT e next meeting would be announced through tie medium of the putlle piee*. Feveial other citi/ere signified their deMr# to apeak, tut es tie committee had sgreet" to ai*joarn, they wera compelled to wait DBtil the next meet ng, which will p.-oVablr take place next Thrrs'e*.

There we e between four aid fire hundred parsons present, a large portion of wlwm were ladles rhe Rabbi were habited in the Talis er vestments of the priesthood, and the ark and sacred scrolls of the law were nsed in the esremony. ^ The exercises commenced with prayer in Vw> Hebrew language, by Rev J. J. Lyons; after whioh the so'o and chorus, "How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob," was rung by Rev. L Sternburger and the choir . A proces sion, consisting of the priest*, and besrers carrying the scrolls of the procession in accordance with the prescribed order, "ciroumamiulated the Synagogue seven tames,' tbe priests and choir chanting a psalm while they were making each circuit. These were all sung in He brew. At the conclusion of the seventh psalm, another prayer was offered: after wbish tbe congrega tioii was aoareased by l)r. Rapball, Me xrs Merzbacber, S M. Isaacs, M. Lilian tbal ana H. A. Henry. The cere monies were closed with a pry ?r for the government and the singing of a psalm by Ae choir. This is tbe first hospital erected by the Jews In this city, and it Is certainly a creditable specimen of their liberality and benevolence. The building covers four lots, snd is fifty feet by two hundred. The front extends fifty feet on Twenty eighth street, and is five stories ftixh. In depth the hospital is ninety-eight feet, toe remainder of the lot being tastefolly la d out for a gar den. There are about twenty wards altogether, besides those which are Rtt apart for private patient* The syna gogue, or chapel, is situated on tbe second floor, and is capable of holdiDg about one hundred persons Tbe hospital contains accommodations for one hundred and liny patients, and is provided with all tae necessary ac commodation* The cost of the edifice and two of the lots was $36,0fO. the other two being tbe donation or 8am?on 8mi?on, Esq , a gentleman well known to the Jewish community for his charitable nature. Th? hos pital will be tbrown open for the reception of patients about the first of next mooth. Hitherto, it appears, according to the ordinances of the Jewish religion, no msmber of it could enter one of our hospitals, in conse quence of the difference in tbe eyatem of dietetics pre criiberi by it, which in many respects is at variance with Christian practices. They have, therefote, felt the want of su:h an institution very much, and iVt go an pie lion, as may be supposed, U a subject of no ordinary gratification to them. BANQUET AMD BALL AT NIBLO'S. A grand banquet and ball were given at Niblo's Garden last evening by tbe patroni and friends of the Jewish Hospital, tbe inauguration of which we have dsscribsd in the forcgoinp report. Between five and six hundred ladies and gentlemen sat down to the banquet, which was served np in excellent style. After the many good th ngs were thoroughly discussed, the President gave Ibe first regular toast: ? The Jaw's Hospital in New York? founded by faith, and treated by charity, may its supporters never require its aid. Thi* toast was responded to by tbe Rev. S. M. Isaacs. The principles, said he, of benevolence are so well known and pra-tised it may be well said we live in an age of cfcaiity; benevolence restraint tbe desire*, aad leads the child of sin to tbe gates of salvation. In a word, it is the polar star of our lives, and points to eternal salva tion. It invigorates our dormant power*, and fan* the spark of generosity into a bright and shining light, which gilc* our mortal day. Benevolence was the char acteristic of tbe Jewish race In tbe days of yore, a* It is at piesent; and they can, therefore, in this land or free dom realize an that their hearts could desire for the amelioration of those who are in distres*. They haveex hibited this spirit in the establishment of the institution which we have Inaugurated. Tbe speaker here returned bis thanks to the ladies and gentlemen wbo attended its inauguration, snd expressed the hope that they would exhibit their sympathy for it in a practical way He read a letter from Mr. Alexander Kensbett, tendering $60, a* the donation of the Society for the Infraction of Jewish Children, to the Hospital. The speaker pro ceeded to spesk of the great necessity which existed for such an institution, and ooncluded by exhort>ng his bearers to contribute liberally to its future oupport and maintenance. The second toast was given by the President, ai fol lows; ? Tbe President of the United States. Mr. P. A. JoACHiMBSEtr responded, but in so low a tone of voice that It was impossible to hear what he said. The third tegular toast:? I Religions Liberty? the basis of true freedom; the tree ex crcise ot God's bolleit gift. B< sponded to by Rev. Dr. Ramaix. Religious liberty, he sail, woathe greatest privilege that could be oonfeired on man. Without it we die? spiritually die all the higher, nobUr, all the beet feelings of the heart die wherever freedom of conscience Is denied ; for religious liberty is of a higher snd holier cbaracter-thnu civil free dom. The denial of civil freedom can only enslave the body, while tbe denial of religious liberty degrades the mind and imperils tbe soul. The denial of civil liberty call* upen me to do what 1 will not; the denial of reli gious liberty calls upon meito do what I cannot Now you may tell me that what 1 We just said to you sounds very much like nonsense; that to talk about making people do wbat they caimot is contrary to common sense. I answer, you are right: It Is true the attempt to compel conscience is at once the greatest outrage on common ner-ee, the most dastarn aos of cruelty, that could be perpetrated. (Applaua*.) 1 can no more com ix>l myself to believe in that which Is r*pagn%nt to my reason than I can comp*l another per son to kve me if I am in any way repug^ nant to him or her; and *uch is the power or antipathy that external compulsion only tend* to increase end strengthen the power ot resistance. And this eiplains to u* the history ot that increasing, that strenuous opposition, tkat war aga nst religions, which our ptopl* have ?o long and *o sucoe**lully contended against. No nation on earth ha* been persecuted so lore snd so bitterly a* we. From Antiochus, the mad man, down to Nicholas, the ruffian, an unrelenting war baa leen waged against u*. It our suffering* have bet n great, our re*i*tance has been grester. To u? It was giTen to furnish tbe first martyr to rel:<ious liberty ; to us wa* the duty assigned of proving to the world that mind is superior to matter. Atfer dwelling at greater lenpth on fbl* *ubject, the speaker concluded by ?spew ing the hope that the day is not far distant when all the world will a:t upon tbe prtneiple that eival and religion* liberty is tte Unseat basis or man'* happiness here, and of his hops* hereafter. ...

Tbe Grand Jury came into court, and Mr. McKeon, the raited State* District Attorney, said to the Court lhat be bad been requested by the Grand Jury to preieat to the Court xeveral question*, on which they desired to fee ins' rueted, which were as follows: ? * 1. Has the Grand Jury, before fin Hog a bill against an j person accused, the right to hear witnesses fur the d? fencer 2 If it a cos tempt of coart for any person not con nected with tbe court to appioaoh any Grand Juror, or have cn?u|unicsiion with him is reference te any m.it ter wbit^K, or nay cosie, be/ore tbe Grand Jury? 8 I the testimony of an accomplice adequate reason for finding * bill? 4 Has the District Attorney any right to be present in t> e Grand Jury room during tbe examination of wit nesses? Jut*ge Ingeroo.U thoa said: ? I hare not mush doubt, gentlemen, with regard to the most of what yoa hare asked. Tbe Grtifel Jury are to examine into the matters brought bi-lore 1am, to find eut if tlier* i? reason to j bebeve that tfce olfsnco bus toen commit lei And if tt ej aie satisfied, from tbe test mony which it brought bt 'ore ihem ttia.aocti is the fact, they are t? Qui tbe b 11. It follows, from tnia rale, th?t no evidence oan be admitted oa tbe ,-art of tbe accused. l'hey determine tlit ?>.? upon tne evidence on Uie part of tbe govern ment, and tbtn it i;a?s to tho Petit Arj , not only upon ttot evidence, but -ipoe suctrotber evidence as may bs ofTcre i in bebalt ol the aocu<-el, or agaMiet him, and the Petit Jury is to determine upon tbe whole evidence, whether tbe charge csace by thj Grand Jtiry is madc-out. The next question is whether an acco:ip!i ee is a sufll ' cient witness to warrant the (lading of a bllL There bave been doubts eifaisred at Tanous times by diilb rent Judges, whether tt at oviderse is edfiua'e to war rant a conviction upon !t alone, by a Petit Jury, and it has been claimed that it >? not enough for that purpose, nnless it is corroborated by the tec-timony of oilier wit tn.>e?. Hut the correct 7ule upon this point is, that a Petit Jury may convict upon that eAtdence alone, if they believe that the accomplice speaks tie truth; and if the Petit Jury may convict up?n that evidenne, much more may the Graxd Jury bring in a bill upon it. It la a part of tiie <>atb which you have taken tliat you will keep secret the counsel of youreslf and your fellows. What transpires m the Gland Jury loom Jh not to be made known beyond its walls No one outside, therefore, has any right to know what is going on within it; and there fore any approach to a Grand Juror, either to away hinv in his action, or to pry into tbe secrets of the jury, is a grea*. impropriety, and I should consider it a contempt of oourt. li> the State courts it would be ooasidered as a misdemeanor, there being a State law whtch makes It such; out 1 am not awaie of any act of Congress upon the subject, though indeed the subject has come sudden ly upon me. I should, however, onusMer it a contempt of court, to be treated accordingly. The remaining question is as to tbe right of the District Attorney to be present with tbe Grand Jury. I have no doubt that he bus no r'gbt to be present duringtae deliberation of the jury, or to argue the case to tham ; but although I have not had tbe opportunity te examine the point, I am inclined to think that he ha* tbe right to be present during the examination of tbe wit nesses. 1 am not willing to give a more decided opinion en the po'ct until I have examined it more thoroughly. I understand that the practice has be?n that he should be present to examine witnesses, both in this district and in the Northern district of tue State, aud 1 should be inclined to follow that practice, unleu I should con clude the t it was olcarly inadmissible. 1 will communi cate further with you on the subject at aome future time. ? r. McKecn here read to the Court a decision of Judge McKeen of Pennsylvania, on the right ot tae jury to bear witnesses for the defence, and on tho amount of evidence required to warrant the finding of a bill. Judge Ingerroll said that as what he had said might not have been perfectly clear to tbe jury, he would say that the rule was, that they were to hear no witnesses ether than tho*e tnrnished by the Diatrut Attorney, and the evidence might perhaps be favorable to tbe defence; as, for n?t?nce>. if aume drunken vagabond should be brovght before the jury for the purpoae of procuring tbe incictment of Mr. RcKeon, and during his examina tion as a witncaB he thould state that when the offence was committed, Mr Ogde n HoiTman, and Mr Hillyer, the Marshal, were present and saw it, it wonld be the right of the Grand Jury to send for Mr. He 11 man *nd Mr Hill yer, to tell what tbey know about it, although their evidence might exonerate Mr. McKe.n entirely; that as to the aaount of evidence necessary to warrant tbe find ing of a bnl, is bad been doubted formerly whether it would not be HUfflc'eLt, if probable cause were shown, but that now the better rul* wa~. held to be lhat the evi dence must be such aa that the Grand Jury could say, upon their eatbi, that on the evidence ai it stood be fore tbem uncontradicted, tho accused was guilty of the offence charged upon bim.
