OF PATRICK TTKNTf*' MT- TEB JURY bKVKXILY REPRIMANDED BY TUE uom. Dor. 31? Judge Gould, having Inquired whether iho )?ry who conv cted ihia prisoner last nighl of anon In (be third degTee ?u In oonrt, Mid ?Became a )mry have merely the phyeioal power of ttndlig a peracn guilty of one or another often oe, they had no right, In any ahape or manner, to oonviot this prlaoner of araon In the third degree. They were told eipreealy and ezpllc tly, aa a matter of lav, that If they found that the prlaoner let the bnildlng on Are, thetr duty waa to tnd him guilty of araon in the aecond degree. By their finding they found that he kindled the tire, and they preaumed to overrule the Court on a question of law ; and I aay here, emphalloally, that It la aa absolutely moral perjury aa If they had tbcmsc'vea committed per )W7 npm the wltneaa stand. Now I will obserre that tbe Court doea not all here aa a mere matter of force, to tell the jury what the law Is; and it is just aa much mat ter of acoident (without their knowing anything of araon k> the third or the fortieth degree) whether they gave a eon vict ion that would entitle the prisoner to a new trial aa whether it ralna or shines to day. Tbe duty of the Jury Is to lake the law from the Court, and merely their having the physical power to say "yea" or "no'' aires them no right to Iransocnd the dlrocliona given. They were Informed distinctly that th? fact of tne setting on Ira was all that they had to do wiui. THE PEOPLE T3. KKRIOHT AND STEVEN?. Ex Recorder Bmith, In tta case of Enright, dealred to Mfct an explanation In reference to in affidavit which he tad preaented yeatcrday, dealring a postponement of this trial. The aUidavit ahsuld have read that the witness tad left for Connaught, and not that be had aailed in the Oonnaoght. The name of the witness who was repre tented to be at the Astor House was a diflerent person ai together; he had been there eleren years Instead of three weeks, as bad been represented by the newspapers. Mr. Clinton observed that the defendant Stevens had been wrongly Indicted by the name ef Stewart. They, however, did not plead that In abatement, because they were ready for trial and did not wish to cause any delay The District Attorney, tn referring to the caaeof Kn right, remarked that be could not be expected to read a I tta newspapers, and be really did not know whether the Conn aught was going to Ireland or coming back when tho afllda . it stated that the party sailed in tl>o Connaught Be tad no knowledge which informed him of the neceB aary falsity of the affidavit. Ho had aaked the counsel ?? atate in hia affidavit wben the Connaught sailed, ?Bd be (Mr Smith) tamed round in open ooart and ca'lod rat to hia client for information, who repeated '?three weeka ago." and aa that tallied with bia impression that H wsa that time, he supposed it to be true that the wit naaa aailed In the Connaught. He had no reason to dis trust the truthfulness of the affidavit, and therefore did ?ot require a new one to be made. The witness, John Welsh, of the Astor House, was In court. Ita Court? Yes, but tbia Is a different mat. Mr. Smith? This man hia been in bis place, I believe fbr eleven years. John Welsh wis here interrogated by tbe Court, and atated that ho knew nothing of the matter, and when the alleged crime was committed he was tn a different part of the city. 4 Mr. Smith suggested that tbe matter should stand orer till to morrow, so that an additional affidavit could be produced as to what vsaael this witness bad sailed in District Attorney? I aay that this defendant stands be rore tbe oourt under such a degree of suspicion that there ?tanld be some additional affidavit. Mr (warmly)? I aay there is no suspicion about it. and it is unfair for the Diitrtct Attorney to say so be i ore this oourt and the jurors who will try this case. Tta Court thought It better to postpone the ease t il next morning. C11AR'. I OF MCRDER IN THE SECOND DEii REF.

Lady Franklin, the guest of II. 3rltn "P, Hsq. At eight o'clock the meeting was c ailed to or Jer by Judge Daly, one of the Vice Presidents of the society, \\ ho of oupied the chair during the first part of the evening. Several gentlemen were proposed and e ecied members of the society, and the regular order of business was then post poked far the purpoee of hearing Dr. Joeojih P. Thorn] son's paper upon 1.IBAKON AND TITB SKAT OF WAR. Dr. TnoMinos was Introduced by Jugle Daly, and was received with hearty applause. He sail that ho bad pre pared his lecture upon the subject un'er consideration for a popular audience, and, at the request of one of the members of the society, he wouil read those portions only relating milnly to the geography and history of the Lebanon district, omitting his appeals for popular aid, and leaving the characteristics of the Druses and Maronltes to his friend Dr. Wm. H. Thompson, long a resident of that dtstrlol and the son of Dr. Thompson, the well known missionary. The reverend doctor then ( proceeded with his paper, referring at Intervals to a large map of Palestine, which hung in the rear of tbo ] President's desk. The paper opened with a brief sketch of the picturesque scenery about Beyrout, with notion of the ancient monuments thereabsuts, descriptions of the Lebanon and anti-Lebanon rarges, the valley between, anl the approaches to I>amascus, Mahomet's earthly Paradise, the oldett living city, lying bight with thousands of domes atd minarets In a sea of verdure, suoceeded. The surround ing country, with Its ruins of ancient cities, receiad brief historical notices, and the speaker said that If the Caliph Omer was curaed by all mankind for destroying the Alexandrian library because the Koran would tike the place of Its volumes, impartial execrations should be bestowed upon the crusading priest who Closed to be burned the library of Trlpolls, because it contained nothing but the Koran? all Arabic books being Korans to him. He mentioned the river Adonis, running down from the mountains and reddened by s>me ferragenous deposit, because there the abominable rites of Venus and Adonis were celebrated, and such monstrosities aa those of the Druses' religion have been at home there for (brty centuries. Bey root was pronounced the most important commercial city of Syria, and references to Tyre and SI don, completing the connection of the I.ebanon d'strlct with tbe Mediterranean coast, concluded thli portion of the led ire.

The excitement amorg the anlmaJg ? the built and bent ? in their menagerie in Wall street has temporarily subsided, except among those unfortunate Individuals who have told stocks that they had sot In their poeieFaion, and who, to meet their engagement*, have now to buy or borrow upon the moit exorbitant term*, if they can even obtain them at all. Yesterday the toene waa very different from that of the pre vious day. Then every animal waa in a state of rabid ex citement, except an occasional ely fox, who, teeing far ther than otbere Into th>- future, bonght up all he coald acd held it. On the street on Wednesday, at the corner of William and Exchange place, were to be seen men running j about with "leaied" looks and whitened facet, and who would often (top tuddenly and cont ilt tome friend i u to tl.e chancoi of a fall. "How will it be?" "Will it go iow e??" "Shill I tell out?" &c., were the queries of nearly ; all, and away they would start off and try to sell, oftcuor without avail than otherwise. "Central stocks'' went down rapidly, and u they were deemed the "consul'' of this market, of course others came down with them. Western stocks fell , to sue!- an extent that they have not oven yet remcred the ahock. In fact, all kinda or "fancy stocks'" fell to a fearful depth. Yet moat renarkable of all waa the fact that "State st icks'' retained very nearly their regular value, which seemed the more remarkable when the real cauae of tte panic la made known, which it at , follows ?

The Insecure "animals, ever oa tho look oat, caw thla unexpected desire to aell,and took frltrht. They at once began t> pour into the market what toey also held, an 1 the coesequenee waa a decided and rapid fail, and an Immediate loee of oomideooe. Although this had subsided jesterday, still, up to tho closing of the first board, there was as apparent anxle.y among who held and those who wiahed to buy.

The heartbroken mother ludigoautly meets I-atour's overture, but how slinll sho res cue her boy from the subtle villain who is lurisit him to destruction ' Tho smouldering llrts of the Revolution have now, in 1788, burst out in furious llames, and I'arls is a scane of anarchy and bloodshed. Tho Bastile is taken by the mob an 1 micte tho prisoners whom they restore to liberty Is Robert landry, a poor emaciated creature, apparently In tbo last ttage of mental and physical prostration, w bo, however, slowly recovers his consciousness, and, in the iLVifccrating sense of freedom, gradually resumes bis native energy 6f intellect, "a learning that Catherine Duval has been married to St. Valerie he re* 'lve? on re venge. In the second act we find him an Influential mem ber of the Convention, and among his proscribed victims are tbe young Count and the Abbe, both of whim hare been Imprisoned In the Concicrgerle, and are to he son signed to tae guillotine the loilowlng morning. In vain bail the Counters sued for tnercy on behalf of her sun The "dea.l heart" of the prisoner of the IUsl lie is in sensible to the appeals of pity, and with cold disdain rejects the mother's prajer But with a refinement or vengeance be resolvos that I.atour shall die by his haud all. no The Abbe Is summoned by bis order to his private apartment in the prison, where, after reproaching him with bis crimes and the bitter wrongs he has endured at bis bands, he places a sword In bis band, an I tells him be must tight him on the s;.ot until one of them be i slain. This interview ooncludes with a duel, in which the Abbe la slain The young Count is to be the neit victim ol 1 ai dri's vengeance.

As insy be readily understood from tbe above return. of the plot of the " Dead Heart, ? It Is rather an mtoreat ing and en exceedingly efieotlve play. The management of Niblo's bave taken some pains to get it up properly. The icenery is very good, and the oostumos, property s, kc , excellent. We cannot say as much for the acting Mr Kfcher was elever in a disagreeable r?U, but Mr Con way, who had tbe best part, wss soslow snd pompous in It as to make the play, whleh la at the best heavy, an intolerable bore. ir Mr. C?way was not so anxious t> make "points," bis performance, as a whole, would bo mueh better. He has yet to learn how to talk naturally on tbe stage, and might take some lesaons from Mr Forrest who baa wisely llecarded tbe usa?es of the small sword and knee breeches epoch. In this drama tbe autbi.r ev i dently intends that lbs moat powerful ellecl shall bo pro duced In the moat natural, colloquial and easy way Mr Conwsy quite defeats tbe author's Intention, and there fore Mr Conwaj's rendering of the part should be re formed altogether. It may be doubted wbeth*r tbls play In Ibe beat bands, would auooeed with our audiences It is too sombre; and, not to put too fine a point upon It, dreary. It It one ot those plays which lax tbe i>atlence of tbe people very severely, and concerning which we are apt to say. afler It la all over, cm bm to' However, the "Dead Heart" was, all things considered, very well reecivel last night, and may be eel down as a rur.i (fsstfms To night Mr. Forrest will play King I*ar for tbe last time, "n Saturday Ibe "Dead Heart' will be re lieskted, and os Moaday Mr Forrest will appear as Otballo. .
