Mark H. Woottei sworn? I was clerk of ths staambott up ire, of Trey, during tbe year 1849; I oulv kniw Pe hrff. Adams by reputation; knew Katery Matthews as ?a emigrant runner; had known him for two or three jears before; that was his business in 1849; be bal a place of business in the oorner of our office on the dook, -which was partitioned off and entered by a separate 4oor; he bad a sign there: I don't know that he had any partner; he sold thee* tickets of Adams' anl we took ik em onoa or twice, but they refused to redeem them and then we stepped taking thetn ; they had another office for Tedeeaiiag near where the Fall Kivsr boats ctme in; I ?ai never there. I don't know where the offlse wa*{ can not aay where he spent moat of his time in 1849; he ased to be round the dock anl o;her places; saw tickets auch as those produced in tbe hands of parsons la the ?ffice, and also in tbe hands of persons going out of it; 1 saw another party occupying the office; novdr saw Pa ler W. Adam* there Ckoss examined? I was clerk of this boat several years, commencing in 1849; knew Matthews first in Trey, af terwards in New York; do not know what his business ?was; first knew him in 1847, in those places; he was <o lag up and dawn, and was engaged in forwarding pas aeagers; I do not call am in who forwards pagtenfers an emigrant runner, onlese he solicit* them, which I have seen Matthews do; those produced were hit tickets; 2 saw him have Adam*' tickets in his poesetsion la 1449 several limee ; do not know If he was a clerk ; my place t>f business was on beard our boat ? anight boat; did not receive those ticket* twenty times on board our boat; I received thrm by order of tbe Captain, although 1 did not know Mr. Adams ; I heard Captain Tup per call Mat thews an emigrant runner in 1H49; he used to say Mat thews, the runner his business was for a long time for warding passengers; my impression was Mittbews had an office in Troy, but he never forwarded twenty or one hundred panengers at one time on our boat; I now keep the Kallroad Saloon at Troy. Jeremiah I.attuop sworn? I was one of the Soetutl Jus tices of New York in 1860; did not know plaiutill' before ? gentleman applied to me in that year; he applied to me on tbe 25th or 29th of June, 1850, s-atin,' he had heen violently assaulted; no warrant was isausd on first application, and, I think, no affidavit made till 1 next aaw him, on tbe 28tli; I hold the uftilavit la my hand; it is signed by me; the Mayor called ut>oo ma; I saw the publication when I was a witness before, but do not re member teeing It before tntt; my attention m.iy hare heen called to it, but I do not remember. Cross examlued? Mr. Matthews did not interfere to prevent me issuing a warrant; the cojipltm int was anxious to have tbe matter investigated: my impression is that tfce parties were never at my office at anv one time together; complainant called a great n^imb^r of times, and ao did deteudants; but the affair was not In vestigated by me. Captain Wm. W. Tapper swim ? I was capttin of the Empire in '48, '49 and '50; I knew Matthews for a loug time; don't think I know Peter W. Adams'; Mitthews' business waa selling tickets, kc., to emigrant passen gers; knew not where his office was; saw htm on ttie boat frequently ; never knew Adam* even by sight ; siw tickets with dIh uame on on hoard tbe but, I gave him a? authority to issue them; tliey were taken at ttvu gang way of tbe boat and shown to me as new tenets, I de aired them to be taken, and if they were redeemed we -would take them next trip; they were not redeemed; Mr. Woester told me so, and I told him to Uks them no more. Cress ex.i rained? . 1 do not know how many wore taken ?n board the boat, nor how rainy timis tiejr wera taken; they are generally taken for deck passengers, who ate not allowed in tbe eabln William A moll sworn? In Jane, ISftO, my place or baai nee* wax No 240 Broadway, near I'ark place; one day about tliat time my attention was called to soais loud talk outeide tbe dojr; I saw a crowd, aal a gentlemxn c?me up to explain to mi the cause of ths lead talk; 'heard Adams say he ought t<> hare broken his neck, and that he had a good rutnd to do ho niw; Adami cuigh the gen tie rot u by the nose, and I shoved both of them oT my st-?ps aDd inte the street; I did not sen Mitthews t* Tecegnize him at any time bsfore the crowd separated; ?first time 1 recognized hiin was in court afterwards; Adams became wrathful, and wan going to attack me; I told him to come on, and he declined, but went off grua I fcling In company with some tenor a dozen? quite a I Crowd of them. Cross examined ? When I first saw the gentleman who was examined, be was oil' me step on the sidewalk; he ?u on that step fee*- wide) whea Adams caught him by tbe note; Adams and he were the only people on the step; I shoved both elf; I thiuk no on? touched the gentleman except Adams; 1 think I should have seen any ?ne touch him with his elbow, bat wasn't paying atten tion except to my window, which I feared woald be broken; us * no one elte approach; the gentleman, I think, caught held of the rauiug leading to the saloon kelow, wbf u I shoved him off. Direct resumed ? Was on my stoop; there was quite a Crowd oil tbe stoop on tbe sidnwal*. John M. Reed, sworn? I was employed la the editorial department of the Sun on the 27th June, 1850, and am mo still; :he original report of this publication was, I think, received frcm a reporter named Moran, who has beta dead fir some year*; he repo.-ted pallce reports end city items; all reports go throagh my bands direct to the printing oQice; neither of tbe Beaches saw this article until it was in print; I heard of Adam or Mat thews calling at the office, and knew Messrs. Bsach to fcave made inquiries relative to tbe matter. Crow) f xauiined ? This was Morons report, I think, \ What waa the daily circulation of the Saai in 13?0r 1 do not Know; that is not my department. I'id you hear the defendants say what the daily circu lation wat-f Objected to ?a irrelevant, but allowed by the Judge. I beard them say that the daily circulation of tbe "furr waa 50, 000; this was about four or fivs years ago; tie circulation has, for all I know to the contrary, been > about uniform since that time. I The defence here re* ted, reserving the right to call tbe I Mayor's Marshal and Dr Uriscora at another time, and the plaintiff's attorney opened h-s case. It ban, ?sid lie, be*n attempted to prove that Mr. Mat thews was with Adams in 1149. 1 will prove that Mr. M. was in a distinct employment, an>l had no acquaint ance with Adams.

At tae tiro* of the assault Mr. A. went out of an omnibus an 1 net the ?arty complaining, and pulled his none I w 11 shuw Matthews had no part in the assault It was contended by opposite counsel the libel was a police report They cught to have waited, and not published it until finally .adjudicated. I contend It was an cvi. tonal article, an 1 ^not a police report. The verdict o' six oe.itd on a former trial was because a judgment of #500 wat awarded pre viously, and was then standing against tUn, and the jury thought probably tti at was en-iugh. Tbo couusel then read an extract from Judge Oner's caarge on that trial (acknowlecgin/ himself to bare its reportar), whi?h ftated the artie'e to be a libel, us tr. ports state ments should not be published Mr. Wheaton then reid the alleged Hbel as already published, and the testimony if l'ot'r W.

Cross-examined? I can't remember date*, or whether Adams and Matthews were together after June, 1819. Direct resumed? I wax in the business from January, 1848, to March, 1801. [Report of his testimony on pre vious trial bhown ] la this it? Counsel objected, as this was the worst form ef a leading question. The Judge ruled that the witness could Took at the report to see whether it would refresh his memory. [ the report was in the Sun of 27th No vember, 1S52, the day after the triaL] According to this it must hare been in the fall ef 1849 1 saw Matthews; that was the busiest year with fianda upon emigrants, but with thia to rerresli me. I cannot, aside from it, draw on my memory any closer. [On tearing the stand the Doctor said, there is ne doubt but it is quite true, but I cannot tax my memory sufficiently to swear to it ] George W. Flinch man .sworn ? Have been employed In the Major's office since 1833, principally as olera;tUe book here is a record of licenses to emigrant brokers, runners and ooardiog house keepers; tbe first date I find here is July, 1849; it extends from that tiaae te the prevent . there is no license to John W.

He (Mr. IB. ) might (like Mr. Qerard on a former trial,) repeat this queatiea five or eix time*, but there waa ao need, ao he waa aatutied Mill* never had any let him prodaoe it ? but perhap* it wa* burnt up with the books, receipt*, Ac., that were deetroyed in the great ooellagtatioa ia which the record* of MilU a* forwarder, perished. The learned ceunael haa aeen fit to arraign my conduct ia brioging the reiult of the former trial* to your no tice, and also telling you that thia waa the moth suit growing out of thia name case. I contend that tain we* .perfectly jaitifiable, aa there ia scarcely aay suit which growa out of another, that eome alluaroa u not made te the fecmer caae. Mr. Brady then reviewed the teatimony of Adams, and aaid ? These tickets were sold by Adama. He almit* it. They were worthies*. He promise! to re<eem theia. Why did he not do it? Why old he not even pay the dollar be promUedT Why, bttcanae he waa full of falae hood. Now, it U argued, aa you have already heard, that Matthew* bad aothing to do with the aale of these ticc ets. If lie hail not, why did he not say so? It is evident he es pou Md the cause o< Adam* either from a bad dis position to aasist in doing wrong, or tbit be waa de-p y interested la the result. The latter 1 belisve to be the true state of the case. Hia accidental appearance, too, on the soene of action, waa extremely fortunate. My learned brother has laid eome (tress on the fact that Mr. Arnold did not ate Mattfcews atiiae the gtntleman whose note Adama pulled. Well, there waa aotntng in tbat. l'eopli of his stamp knew bow to put in a sly | above, without beiag noticed, anl Mr. Arnold was ! too busy in endeavoring to save hi* glass, to s?e ' whether it was done or not. But tbe law rnide Matthews a* liable a* Adams, by aiding and asaiitiog him If five hundred people get up a fight be tweotfcwo pugilist*, they are a* liable to be punished for a not a* the principals. The whole history of this case was. thai Horsley told the reporter the facts, as published, at the Mayor'# oflice It was brought to the Sun (.tlice ai a regular police report, and was handed in to fee compositors by Mr. Reed, without having ever boon seen liy either of the defenaante. Now, as to the fact of Horsley been knocked down, it is con tended that he was not. Well, he was not, but he got a punch, or a hunch, or a shove, and would have fallen only lor the railings and I need not tell you, geuUemen, who ate (ngiged at primary elections, what such terms mean. It is the duty of the press to caation tin public against tbe tricks which are practired by psople ia th.s way, and i; ia also its duty to let the puolic know who the magistrate is who refuse* to do justics. ti* prete is the terror of a 1 evil do?r?, aal th? Highest en comium jou can pass upon it, is to show who are its ene- | mie*. lx?ok at tbe luflian who line lately put to d>ath a pocr Italian named I1an *i for aa attempt on hia life: I be who baa been guilty of the cold hloo<l?4 munlnr or thousands of citizens, in the cafes and tn the streets o' l'aris Such a scoundrel as this in has mu/.z.ed the pr?i i in France. But it matters nut whether L^uis N tpoleon ?r Emory Matthew* to curtail the liberty of th press, each attempt* from either party but add ta it < power and dig nit j. The counsel saya Mr. Matthews was not a runner. Oh ! no, be wa* a forwarder. Where's the difference 1 I contend lie is a runner, for he runs after emigrants, runs over emigrants, and run* money out of their pack ets; and until anotber Webster arises to give us a new dictionary, we must take the ttrm runner and forward er as synonymous. It was of no consequence whether he wan called, a broker or forwarder or an agent : the term* amounted to the name. The counsel has attempted to leroccile the disKepancicn in Mill's evidenoe. The man in prone to talk loosely, and it doea not at all ?Iter him bv putting him on the stand, go with Horsley, h? it tend of a joke, and going on the stand coul 1 not change his nature. [The learned counsel here analyzed Mill's evidence, taking it to pieces, ss one would the works of a watch, up the main spring, wheels and every other article, to view, In the most laughable meaner, clearly showing that the counsel on the oppo site side tailed to teioncL'e the discrepancies in his (Hills') evidence.] The cousel asked why we did not assail Matthews' character v Why, he knew that were we to ruisack the police affaira, and find fifty records ?gainst him, we oould not bring them in here as ovi dt?ce. The coumel then called attention to a part of Adam*' evifience, where he savs he went with Horsley with those tickets on board the steamer, and the clerk said ha never refused them. What then did the holder do? Keep tb?m and pay for others. Wtll, you nsigat say t hit some stupid follow would bave paid twice for them; but you won't catch a Vermonter paying twice lor the same tbirg Adams said lie would redoem the tickets. Why didn't ha do it? I'ulUng a man's nose was a qneer way of redeeming pass tickets. (Laughter.) I now come to the charge of a refusal to retract the offen sive article. Matthews said it was falee from beginning to end, but Metars. Beach Investigated the matter and found there was nothing to retract. The assault ws s true. Ibat they were emigrant ranner* was true. No? 1 beg paicoti ? forwarder and booker. That Itonley was knocked down was true ? no, be wa* only shoved? I I'or Ct. That they refuaed to refund money paid for worth ? tickets was true. What then should be the form of retract loot Gentl?%ien. I have used a good deal of levity in th'* matter but I cannot help it. The article was true. It was published fairly and in geod faith It contained no unjust aspersions on the coaraeter of Matthews, and your be?t plan to dispose of it it in such a manner as to let it have no worse etlect than its predecessor. It would be impossible to convey an id *a of the effect of Mr. Brady's address. Racy at one moment, and full of the most biting saicasm the nest, it was looked upon aa one of the most witty, eloquent, and at the suae time logical speeches ever delivered in a court of justice. Tim CHAROB. Judge Bcsworth Inquired of the jury If they would prefer to wait for the charge till the morning, (it being then past 3 o'clock,) or have it forthwith. The jury ret Ilea they would prefer the latter. The Judge then deliverel the charge aa follows:? Gentlemen ? Ibis notion I* brought, as you have al ready been apprised, lor publishing an article in the New York Suv, and the defendants set up a defence that it was true. The rule Is, that a party who justifies the publishing of a libel, by attempting ta prove that what waa published waa true, must (how that in ita sub stance and meaning the facta were as the article states; ana although ever y part of an article claimed to be libel lous as a whr.le is not proved to be true by the defence, yet it what is loll is uot of itself Mbelloui, the d?f*nce is made out. A libellous publication is one the statements of which are calculated tu expose ? man to public ridi cule, hatred or contempt. It ia not ntcessiry. in order that an article which is printed, or written, or published, be libelioua. that it should imply an offense. And in thia oboneetion I m vy as well remsrk that if the de.'enlaate have proved that the article t* true, they are entitled to jour verdict. The law allows a man to publMi any thing of another, provided it is true ? and It is complete defence that the article ia true. The m?in part of the artie'e states that a respect able man waa npsailed in Broadway by Messrs. Mat thews and Adan.s. two ecgrant runners, wbo knockel him down and gro??ly maltreated bim Thia stat"m?n is one wbirh is libelimih on its face, and in referen-e t? this pnrt It la for you to say if it has bei n proved aut> sUnUa'.ly true. That the party wat asiaulted that even lug, I believe there is no controversy. In reference ta the alltgat on that they were emigrant runners, I do not think that was material. Call n* a man an emigrant runrer is not in itself libellous. It is a business license I by In w ; and, if a man conduct* himself properly, there can bo no reproach upon him in the eye of the law in re gard to that. I make the remark to show that It does not become the turning point whether you abould be lieve strictly that plaintiff ia what ia ealied aa emigrant runner or not. The article allege* that an assault waa committed on a respectable man named. That an as sault waa committed on him is not denied. The name of the party ia stated right, and I believe he is of reej ectabtl ty, and in that branch the article ia true, lhe material po'at, so far as the plaintiff la con cerned, Is whether he participated in the assault, to that it can be said that the aaaault and maltreat ment of the party wai made by Matthews aa well aa Adam*. Hie rule of the law undoubtedly, la where an s?siult ia committal by a person, that although the Wows may be strusk by one person only, Mother* are present, and urging the matter on. and participating among themselves ia it, although th? others may not have struck a blow, ttey can alii be sued aa joiat trei psnseia. There ta proof that Mr Adams asade an as i au'.t ? th* on?} qUcAlUft is u" Ur. Matthew* a'sa un

If ton beliere Matthew* did Bake an assault on Inn, and if it was of the character elated by the party, yoa will hare ao difficulty inlladiag that Matthews ma. treated bim; if you do not beliere the party, and tbat hie statement is untrue, or bo wa* mis taken, and that Matthew* was there inarely aa a casual spectator, the* hie pari of tbe Ueleacs ia not made out. hut, on the other ban), if you beliere tbat Matthews wa? crowding touad and participating with A'atna, the judgment ot law i* that taey equally oeraaitied the offoDoe. Then tbe onif other point ii that titer kaoekel bin down. There In no coatrnrertiy, I beliere, aa to hid not baring been knocked down lie kept hi* feet, and ia that form the article u u?t true; but tue dslanse ia substantially made out, la jalxmeut of U w, if he wa* assaulted with auch violence, either by puahing or otherwise, tbat he would hare been thrown down if he had net taken hold or tbe ratling; toe only rea?on why the reiult dil not follow being that he to supported nimae.f aad prarented it. But wh?re the article aaya the party waa aaaaulted and proceed* to atate the circumstance* of ttie assault a* beiag of aa afg'avat*d character, aad the evidence should discorer Inat there waa amply aa a* aault, with no cirrun.ataaoea of *u:h character; aa 1 if tbe (acta stated were wbellt untrue, eo tnat aa article alleging thoae facta alone <aulJ be libeheui, thea the statement would not be wholly justified by the proor. Hut if aa to the difference between the aggravated cir cumstances attending the aanault, it hta been prored tbat they ehoiud not hare followed, then the aUtemeat would hare been auhatantially made out, and the de lendant would be entitled to your verdict. The ealr ooe. I uaderitanl, to which such importance la attache!, la that tbe quarrel ia repreeeaiml aa originating in the party asking tbe fUlowa to retuni noney ptid to tdea by some nl bis trends for worthies* ticket* boight of tnem. You will observe, in reference to the form ia which it wa* put, by representing tbat it waa tbe caiae ?t the quarrel. Se far aa to whether it waa so ropre sen ted, you hare tbe testimony of the party a* t* what be told the reporter, and alxo a* to what the r?port*r atatad at the office. But 1 apprehend the publication of aa arti ole in a paper whioh, by the terma of the artiole, Hay* it wan stated to the editor br a person that luah and ?uch facts occurred, aad which, if not trae, wouli be libelloaa, would not be justified by showing that auch person made auch repre?enUtions. The jury, however, would look on a case very different where it was said the representation was made, and it waa prored to hare bvea made, by a person ef credibility, aoi one where it was stated unqualifiedly, and aa within hia own know ledge. With rtferenoe to tbe particular phraao I hare read to you, it (ays that they said worthlea* steamboat tickets, aad thus fairly implied tbat they received a price for them; but it doaa not aver ia express term* tbat they knew them to be worthless, or would aot be accepted by a captain to go through with There wa* no allega tion that notice tbat they were nat received bad bvea bi ought home te either of tbem before the sale ? and, therefore, to make it libellous it vaust be ahowa that tbe tact* prored thow that it weuM oe an otfenc* at law to sell such ticket*, or tbat it would be a breach af fair dealing. Thet* is no controversy, I believe, between the counsel that tfcrae two ticket* were sold to soma one, and that th* money, $2, waa received for them; aad, perhaps you will bare ao difficulty la finding that the immediate cause or or gin of tae matter wa* (hat one of tbe partie*, at all events, was called up on to relund the money? aa the testimony shows that the party mada a request to hare them relund the money. Whether Matthews was at all concerned with Aoaus in tbe sale of those t'Cket*, or participated ia any way in said sale, it a matter I most leare tor you to determine on the evidence which hu* been given That evidence, of course, relates to what tool place la taeir Sresence, and to tbe fact ef ticket* of this character etng sold in the office where bn was, and other actiant af thoee parties together, as detailed by the witnesses If you should not be satisfied Irom tbe erideace fiat Mr. Mu'.th.-.WB participated in the tale of these tickets, and that be had no connection with the stlo at alt. and na Interest in the tickets, th'n tbe stat?m-nt in the paper is inaccurate so far as relaten to Mr M:ittb?w4. With rtferccce to th* statement that complaint had bean made betrre Mr. La'.hrop jou have beard the evidence of the party that he went there, aa<l that a wnrrant was refused him. and then tbat he went to the Mayor, and th* Mayor called on Mr. Latbrop. and tbe latter subsequently i.ssued the warrant Now if you Hhould find in tne case that this article liss be?n prove ) in ita exact cope and meaning, on tb? rule I have stated, to bo trua, your lur tber labors would be at an end, und you would give a rercict for dHoodaots; but if you tiad that it has not beea, and portions of it are libellous, then the question left, and the only question, would be that of d.tin*i;es. 1b all actions of libei or slander, wnere a cause of action ismeoeoui, a party ia entitled to recover actual da m??te , sod where no damage is proved, it is a matter resting on tbe tound discretion of a jury ? and what Is uifnnl by that is that there ia no familiar rule by which you can be guided tbe tame as to property, ia estima ting the lule as to character; but the jury m'lat look at the libellous article, and tbe character and meaning in which it was put>li?b'd They must look at It as sen'i In# men, and any wbat wnuW be a pro >e r ?a<l j ant com- ] to ?li? oarty fnr tba libol. I believe tuere was do point made hnre that there was any actual malice. 01 itiat there was o.uT imagjgg to injure. But it ban been suggested to you by counsel that it via entitled to raoa consider* tion that defendants would net retract thia article wbtu wailed upon by Mr. Matthews, and r*iu?s*ed so to do. In reference to that, I tlrak it is a proper view to cootider wbat effect it should have To the eetimntion of tb? jury, an to the character of the arti cle, wbetbir it wan publi*h?d in gooil faith, and believed to be trne, and from that the publishers decline! to make the retraction ; or, if yon suppose, on the other hand, they published it without supposing it to be true; or having, niter wanls. information which showed it to be entirely nntrue, ard they refused to take any notice ?f it, it 1.1 proper te rem tr suitable consideration in dsrosges. But if you should be satisfied that the facta within the knowledge of the partiei asked te make the retraction were such that tbey bad reason to believe the article to be true, then, although it might turn out to be nntiue, it would not be a cane for Aggravated da mage!, or entitle a ptrty to a verdict beyond actual damages. As to the rule of damage*, I understand it to be thattho pet son who has been injured is always en titled to lull, aitual reparation, and where it should ap ptar that where there is actual ill will, thai a jury ia not restrained to what they believe to he the actual lots ?and that under such clrcum?tano?* where the case calls tor It. they art to go somewhat bey o mi that, and give what ia called exemplary damages Th?n what ia called mitigating damages, 1 do not understand the', as meaning that the party, in aey case, is entitled to l*w than his ?ctunl damages. But the defendant* are entitled to a liU-rnl applica'ion as to the rale of damages where it ia shown they acted in good faith, without actual malice, and that they thought it was true, although it might turn out to he otherwise. 80 I apprehend the only point in thia ca*e would be, if yon Qnd for plaintiff what would be, under the rule, the' actual lamage sustained; and that you would not have to tnveetlfate that unless you have determined that the defeniants have felled to prove that the article is true in ita substance and mean ing; and if they have proved th.-.t, the defendants are entitled !o jour verdict. When you have agreed upon your verdict, gentlemen, you will sign it and teal ii,anJ bring it in to-morrow at en o'clook. THIRD DAT '8 PKOCKEDINUS. Sx me of the jurora were a little behind time in present ing themselves tlila momirg; and ss the attorney for plaintiff refused to allow the verdict to be taken until tbey came in, the court was kept waiting nearly half an hour.

It ON BY MARKET. Friday, Jane 1?6 P. M The principal feature of the maruet is the movement in Reading. Ihe sales at the first board tr day figure up six thousand shares, and the advance from the opening to the close wan full one per cent. The bevs are selling 00 time, but there are p.enty of buyers. There is an ta rnenn> amount of capital involved in this movement, and parties operating for a rise could easily, if necessary, absorb the entire capital, and ctrry it without trouble. Speculators for a rlas have all the otlWid* holders with tbem. It Is pretty well understood that the dividends of the Heading Company for tbo present fiscal year, the ' first six months of which ended yesterday, will >?e twenty j jer cent, one kalf in cash and oaa half In stock.

Them circumaUn :?n hare prevented aoy material change in prices; but, in all save the choicest fabrics, buyers have had the advantage In moat current transactions.
