A "Woman Stripped Naked and Hrntally Abinrd-Nbe la Found the Next Morutu* Dead in the Street. [From tho Chicago Pom, Nor. 19.] This morning upon the Coroner's book was entered the simple notification that a woman had been tound dend near Fox A Howard's machine shop, Bridgeport. Some miserable victim of Intoxicating drlnka ana the ?natural comment on such an occurrence which at once suggested Itself. Hut In the circumstances attending the death of this unhappy woman there Is contained a depth of tragedy, a brief but terrible tale of suffering aud outrage, which may lie oxpectcd to arrest the attention of the most bard boarted and callous. Flrft we see her enter a saloon at Bridgeport, kept by one Mr*. Mahoney. At the bar, among otRers, is Sir. J. R. MiNuliy, who keeps a grocery store at the comer of Reuben street and Archer road. His sttentlon is pur tlonlarly attracted to her, chiefly by his noticing that the Is attired with more than ordinary neatness, and that her appearance denotes that she does not belong to tbo class of women who arc to be seen visiting saloons Mr-. Mahoney inquires of her what she wants. Hbe answer* In a vague, bewildered manner that ntie does not know She is then told that she cannot be allowed to stay there; that she must incontinently leave. She begins to wocp nlteously. and U thereupon questioned as to where she has coin(? trom In the same half bewildered manner sho answers, "From down town." "You ought to be ashamed of yourself to be going about in that mndtitou, you, a woman,'* says the Indignant Mrs. Mahoney, anu she Is again ordered to take herself off Mr. MuMulty followed her to the door, and pityingly watched her as she wandered away into the storm and darkness. The rain was falling In torrents, and a chilling wind was blowing over the bleak prairie. She disappears.! in a short time, and In a few minutes her appearance st the saloen was wholly forgotten. At teu o'clock ahe again emerges from the obscurity, and we again see once more lior pallid face, as abe pre sents herself at the same saloon and asks in plteouslv pleading tones to be allowed to rest. Mrs. Msbooey is moved to compassion and quottioos closely, and not per haps without eome womanly tenderness. She explains that she has been engaged as a rook at Mrs Bauer's, who keeps an establishment near the looks at Bridge port She has got ttpeey. she said, and had been turned fut of doors. Bite was wst and weary, and did net know where to go, and again abe Implored the owners of the saloon to give her shelter for the night. Mm Mahoney was willing that her request should be granted. Her husband also thought that If he had had any outhouse or barn Into which the could creep be might extend his charity ?o far As he had no such accommodation the thlnq was impossible. Whatever became of it, she must tramp. Certain "boys ' who were in the saloon sup ported the landlord, and taking her by the shoulders ?aiumarlly turned her out of door*. We sec nothing further of her for a lime All the dwellers in that neighborhood were warm In bed when some one knocked nf tho iloor of a Mf? flrewo on tUo Archer road, and told her to get up, that there was a man dying outsido her door. She alerted up with alacrity, but not caring to open herdoor until she sbou'd ascertain morfl of the m m who spoke, elie told him If there was any one there, as he stated, to to to the lock house opposite and inform the watchman. The man wen) away, and, looking niter hltn.

"i tten of )>>? own, that the former bad given protection to American privateer* which had committed acta of vio lence upon the ooaata of England, and directly scouting the French government of favoring the revolt of the American*. Count VefyOnnee replied, on behalf of the fo^rt of Versailles, on the lftth July, 1777?"Sensible of the complaint* which you have been commissioned to bring to me againit tho three American privateers, the Re prisal, the Lexington and the Dolphin, which, arter having been onjoined to leave the ports of France and not to return, have, however, returned there, notwith standing that prohibition, his Majesty, far from approv ing that conduct (literally shuttling?uao't'ct, which treaties forbid, is, upon the contrary, very rauoh die pleased with it, and cannot better testify bis displeasure than by ordering, as he baa done, the sequestration of the said privateers in the ports where they may have pnt in, to be there detained until we have sufficient security that they will return diroctly to their own country, without further Infesting European seas.'' Bo proceeds to assure Lord Storraont that orders had besn given not to allow the wile in Fr< nch ports of the prises that had been brought In, that they should be made to leave as soon as the weather would permit; that prompt Investigation should bo mods to leavo ns soon as the weather would permit; that prompt investigation should bo mado of tbo British Am bassador's complaint that the Dolphin was a French ship, armed and equipped In France, and that ordors bad been addressed to Cherbourg to look after tbo amament of tho Brehat, which had come in from Maryland. The conduct of Franco was suttlciently wily and care ful, not to apply the term selfishness and duplicity, giv ing secret encouragement to the Americans without openly (umpiring any responsibility, and causing Frank lin, then in Paris, to make counter propositions of ac commodation and alliance to tbe Court ot London. Bur goyne'a defeat Anally convinced France she could make a lure point against her oid enemy. Treaties of alliance, nflbnslfe and defensive, and of oommerce and naviga tion. were promptly entered into, and tbe King of Franco, in 1770. published an elaborate and very skilful exposi tion of the reasons which he supposed to Justify him In his proceeding In favor of the oolonles and against England. This brought forth a lengthy response from the Court of London, wblo'i discovers in every page the band ot a master, written by Gibbon, the historian. But Its value isbot in lis authorship or its ability, but In the foot that It was formally put forth by the British ministry as an offlchl response to the declaration and exposition of the French government. The memorial refers to and relies upon a section of tbe treaty between England and Frani e of 1703, the same referred to by Vergenne*. Concerning that treaty It is to be observed that its expressions of amity and friendship are no stronger than ore often contained in treaties of tbe etmn sort, that if was no strong or more definite tbsn the treaty of friendship existing between England and America at tbo beginning of our civil war, and ibat by no fair congtru< tl9h can it be bold to have altered tbe rights and duties of tbe par ties as neutrals or belligerents under tbe maritime law ot nations. Though vergennes admits that the things complained of by Storroont would be prohibited by treaty, It must be understood in tho general sense of being contrary to the relations and duties of avowed friends, and not that tbo things complained of were spe cifically prohibited by the treaty, for they were not. And though Gibbon quotes the treaty to strengthen his case, he mainly relies upon the acts complained of as being violations of neutrality and of International mari time law, as being unfriendly and oflcnsivo, acts of hos tility, and sufficient cause of war. He cays:?"As soon as tho revolted colonies had consummated their criminal attempts, by tbo open declaration of thetr pretended in dependence, thoy sought to form secret connections with Powers the least favorable to the interests of tho mo ther country, and to draw from Europe tbe military succors without which it would have been impossible for thorn to sustain the war in which tbey bad embarked. Their agents undertook to penetrate and to fix them solvoe in the dlfleront capitals of Europe; but it was only In Franoe that they found an asylum of hopes and orsuccorsi ? ? ? We know that the vigilance of 1 be laws cannot always prevent skilful contraband, which U produced under a thousand different forms, and in wbicb tbo avidity of gam risks all dangers and elmlcs all precautions, but l be conduct of the French merchants, who sent to America not only useful and uocesw.ry goods, hut even saltpetre, canoon paw dor, munition.** uf war. arms, artillery, announces boldly that they were not only aseured of impunity, but of tbo pro tecnon and the favor of the Uinlsteraoi the Court of vor eaillee. see The public knows tbe head of the enterprise, whose house was at Pans. Their corre spondent* at llnukirk, Nantes aud Bordeaux wore equally well knowo. The immense magazines which tbey formed, and which they renewed dally, were laden sue easively upon vessels which tbey built, which thoy bought, and wbo*? object and destination they scar, civ esaayeu to dissimulate. Those v?|g ordinarily bod false sea letters for tbe French lalands of America; but the goods, of which their cargoes were composed, suf ficed before their departure to uootv tlta fraud and artifice. These suspicions were eoon eonln tned by the direction Of the voyages of these vossels, and at the end nl' a few 1 lairen weeks we Icstned without surprise that they had into tfco bands of Ihs otlteers of tbe King, who cruised in the American seas, and who arrested them even in view of she coasts of the revolted colonies.'1 Hpcnking of these vessels and of others that landed stoics lor the colonies, he procecdx:?' lie (the British Ambassador) Indicated the names, ibe number aud the kind of those vessels which the commercial agents of America equip ped In the ports of France, to carry arms and muoitloua of wAr to the rebels, aa<t even French officers who had engaged m the service of tbo revolted colonies. Tbedates, the place*, the persona were always designated with a precision that offered to the mlnist- r? of bis most Chris tian Maje-ty tbe greatest facility for assuring tbentaelvee ol' the truth of these reports and to arrqst, while there waa lime, tbe progreas of tlieae illegal anuameola. Among the multitude at example* whh ti imply the slight atontlonof the Court or Versailles to filling the condi tions of peace, or rather its constant and sustained atten tion to nourishing discord and war, it it impossible to speak of all. and it Is very difficult to choose the moat striking oblecta. The nine large vessel* equipped and fretghled by Mr. HeaumarchaLi and his associates in January, 1777, are not confounded with the vessel Am phytrlle, which carried about the same time a great quantity of munitions of war aud thirty French officers, who went with impunity to the service of tbe rebels. Each month nuU almoet every day furnished new sub jects of complaint, and a short nones of memorial, which Lord Stormont, Ambassador of the King, commu nicated to Count Vergennes in the month ol November of the same year, gave a Juet Idea, but very imperfect, or tbe kind of wiongs which Greet Britain baa so often sustained.

Au-hgkd Hzartlkss Conduct Towards an Injured Man.?-A man named James Connoban was fonnd yester day lying on tbe sidewalk la Robinson street by an offloer of tbe Third precinct, and unable to help himself.

Marriaob not a la mods?A Precocious Tofts.? Cbarles Hefner is a youth of nineteen summers. Unen dowed by nature with either fair seeming or proportion, be Is In appearance a mere stripling of a disagreeable, bilious look, as like to one's conception of a gay Lothario as "Hyperion to a Satyr." Five months ago Hefner wooed and won Katrina Smyths?wooed but to dece Ire won but to betray. A month later Elizabeth Meyhoffer, a pretty little damsel of German parentage but a native of Hew York, a year older tban Hefner, gave similar proofs of a love most unaccountable for this unattractive boy. A bke fate to Katrlna'e scemod Elizabeth's, bat yesterday morning she made complaint at the Essex Market Police Court against Cbarles. While action upon this complaint, was waiting tbe gpp?afanoe of the accused Ip Court, for whom a warrant had been issued, Katrina likewise appeared and told tbe story of ber wrongs. After a little interval Hefner came into Court la charge of au officer. He was placed at tbe railing in front of the desk, and confronting bim were tbe two women whom, under cover of professions of attachment and promises of marriage be bad soduoed. Upon bis ar ralgnment in relation to the double charge preferred against bim be bad nothing to say, but professed bis willingness to marry one of the girls. Justice Manslleld explained to him that it was for no purpose of compell ing bim to such a course that lie bad been brought there: that It was his privilege to stay proceeding* in one of tbe cases by such action, but It must be taken of bis own free will and suggestion. Hefner adhering to bis original proposal, was told to select bis bride. He was not long in choosing. Nature bad been generous to Elizabeth In giving ber a pretty face, small, regular fea tures, bright, intelligent oyer and a clear complexion. These advantages were not lessened by comparison with Katrtna's poverty of charms, as ber pale, consumptive looking, dejected countenance evinced a foreknowledge upon which tbe choice would fall. Charles having an nounced bis preference by a clownish movement in the direction of Rtisabeth, and a cross between a smirk and a grin, the bride and groem elect?tbe brido all under and Impatience, the groom seeming as though ba might be dreaming, so dull did bs appear?were Interrogated by tbe clerk in the manner prescribed by tbs statute, after which Justice Manstleld, having first ordered a dis cbarge m tbe case of Ellzabotb against Hefner, per formed the marriage coroinony according to tbe usual formula. Th" groom was theu given in custody of an officer until hi* ball should be entered in the other case pending against bim. ?noiu?TH?8 C*uoBT i.v Tn* Act. ?Testerday, Alice Jonos end Sarah Ball, two notorious shoplifters. were arrested, having been detected to the very J)) of plying their dlBboaeet vocation. Shortly before noon the two women ontered the store of A. T. Stewart A Co., corner of Broadway and Tenth street, end asked to see some laces. A young salesman named John Roe showed them several pieces b it they dul not purchase, and left the coun ter, when Roe missed a pioce of galpure lace worth f 60. He at oneo followed the two women and arrested them as they were leaving the store. Others of the salesmen at once oaine up and holding the women, told theru that unless tbry gave np the laco they would have to be searched; thereupon, Jones dropped the mis sing piece of lace from under hor drees. An officer took charge of the two females and brought ibem before Justice Dodge. Thoy were earched, when beneath the dress of Jones was discovered very neatly fastened a bag half as large as a pillow case, the mouth of whiob com raunlcated with the pocket of her drees. The prisoner* pleaded not guilty on tholr arraignment and were com ~ trial. muted for I a Pain of Boots.?Richard Conrov, a for lorn, wretched looking individual, cadaverous, half clothed, bare' footed and dirty, was brought before Jus tice Ledwlth vesterday, having been arreted as he was endeavoring to steal s pjdr of boots trom in front of Ihe store, 330 Bowory. Proof waa conclusive; the officer had observed him In tb? act, and the poverty stricken cnlprtt went below for trial. His First Orrises.?A bright, rather precocious look ing lad, about foorteen years old, was yesterday brought before Justice Ledwlth, having on the former day snap-bed a poeketbook, containing $25, from the band of Mrs. Charlotte Dolaaey. In his haste to escape he bad let the iiocketbook fall, and it was not recovered. The boy's mother, a poor, but evidently boneet and hardworking woman, stood by his side in court, weeping in a way that was pitiful to see. Mrs. Delaney told the magistrate that the lad's mother had pleaded very bard with her In behalf of ber son, who had been the comfort of ber deehniug years. This had been his first offence and It had well nigh broken her tipari. He bad always - . - - - - ,yhM (|, attended sroeol, aand she hoped Thai It would prove s lc-?ou to htm without the necessity of imprisonment. Hit Boloney, i ader these cirrtiia.'tanors, was unwilling to make any charge against the lad.
