Before Judge Potter, Cbnirlluf S. Biwhndl to. Smith J. Earfm/in ei at?Thle ease, which has occupied the attention of this Court for the past eight days, is an acllou to eet aside an alleged fraudulent and illegal mortgage made by the defendant Smith J. East man, to his father, I<evl Eastman, In June, 1865. During the winter and spring nf IBM and IMS Smith J. Eastman had been in the habit of obtaining from various merchants In this city large sums of money on warehouse receipts, signed "A. K. Howe," which on their faee represented lsrge amounts nf lard as being stored In the warehouse* No*. 25 New street, and SI Water street while In reality there were no such quantities of lard In storage there as were represented by the receipts. This system was pursued with considerable entices" until the 17th of June 1IW8, when It was suddenly ascertained that Smith J, Eastman was missing. Ills credi tor* very naturally made earnest Inquiry regarding h's whereabouts, and upon making further Investigation th' v found thHt ho bad absconded. Their attention was then very naturally directed to the warehouse1) wheie their security wss supposed to lie, to see If any and what nmonnt of lard was there. They found something like flftydx tierces of lard In Walsr street and about the same quantity at the warehouse In New street. On the 27th of June h s creditors among whom were a nnmberof tlip most respon sible r"i .a la ihe city became fully convinced that the r 0 la inn. amounttn, to abont ghuO.OOO In the aggregate, stood a very poor chanco of lielng adjusted, as It would require between six and seven thousand tleroe* o' lard to cover the amouns. Immediate meaaures were Instituted to obtain a l ine to his whereabouts, and a mcsaonger who v. Ss dlgpstfhed 1)1 quest of him overtook him at i.vnns. In V'ceiu e. Here Eastman had been placed by his friends In a lunatic, asylum on the pica of Insanity. Arrsngnmeuls were -flv-ctcd between him and the agent or the New York creditors by the conditions of which he was t)> return to the United Ntates and surrender all his effects for tho benefit of his credtiore, and no legal proceedings were to be instituted against him. Pret to leaving for Europe, on ILo IStl. day of June I5 ;6. he hs>! eicntiled a mortgage conveying to lil? father property In Broad street worth shout $22,001). One of the victims, the plaintiff In this action, suspected that the debt for which this mortgage wan ma le hail never been actually contracted, and having obtained judgment against Eastman fin shorn (Ik) dU), Qomiucnrrd this ault to set aside the mortgage or OlHuli evidence of tta validity. Eastman's father hail always been reputed a poor man, and It was not twlleved that at anytime he Pad been In apoaltton to loan his ?m any ccnsldsrabln. If any, amount of money. Mr. Boatman, Sr., alleges that the debt for whMi this mortgage had Vrn siren grew out of some speculations which his son had made for him with some $4,600 which the old gentle man had in MS). No regular aceounls of these speculation* had been kept, bnt in IMKi Hmlth J. Eastman compiled a set of account* which, be alleged, embraced the transactions on his father's aocount, and which extended over a period of twelve years, Mr. B. J. Eastman was examined at consid erable length yesterday regarding Ms Insanity while In Prance, and to ascertain to what extent his alleged insanity wss home out by his sets while there, Twelve witnesses were also placed on the stand and testified that they would not believe him on ostli, snd that hla reputation bad been bad for about twelve or llflcen years. One of them slated on ornss-examlautlon that Eastman had sold hint, some time since, two hundred barrels of pork which were supt->s<-d to weigh two hundred pounds per barrel, but were round to contain from one htiudred and fllty to cue hundred snd seventy pounds each.

At balf-peat .even o'clock on Tliursday evening the Joint convocation of rectors of the Episcopal obarcbea of Long Island wee renamed at Grace church, Brooklyn Heights. The procession of clergymen, numbering now about fifty, entered from the vestry room, preceded a* before by tbe choristers, singing? Jerusalem, tbe golden. With milk end honey blest, Beneath thy contemplation Sink heart and voice oppreet. Tbe Convention wee opened with the regular evening prayer, after which the order of business was entered upon. Statistical circulars, giving an exhibit of the Long Wand churches, were distributed among the atom* here of tbo Convention, and alao for tha edlflcatioa of the laity. A preamble and reaolution waa offered by tbe Rev. Dr. LlUleJobn, of Trinity cbnrob, Brooklyn, as follows Whereas, from various causes, chief amongst which Is the rapid growth of population, than la an Increasing demand on thi. i-Tand for tbe work and service* of this branch of the Catholic Cburehi therefore. Resolved, T^hat In the Judgment of tha etorgy andjstt^ here assembled, the time baa arrived when soma mean* should bo devised for mooting' thte demand. The presence of the circulars and the anbstanee of thta resolution Indicated what waa to he tha tenor of the die cussions for the evening. Tbey were Intimations of a combined movement on the part of the Long Island Con vocation, with a view to a separation from the diocese of New York and tbe establishment of a new diooesei Aa Bishop Potter occupied the chair, the subject wss-under tbe circnmstanoee a delicate one, and during the discus sion which followed elicited from the Bishop remarks which from their tone and substance, showed a consider able degree of sensitiveness. A statement waa made by the Rev. Mr. Moon, of St. George's, Hempstead, showing the condition of Queens and Suffolk counties. Hunter's Poini, Long Island City, _ ?jb, - Raveoswood, Astoria, Flushing, Whiteside. Bayside, Manhasset, Glen Gove, Cold Spring, Huntington, Sctauket, Smlthtown, Yaphank. Patcbogue, Is lip, South Oyster Bey, Babylon, Rockaway, Hempstead and Jamaica are provided with churches, leaving a large portion of these eon vocations in the rural districts unprovided. Other denominations were laboring among the population, and were obtaining a foothold where there waa not even en Episcopal mis sionary. There were four hundred end twelve thou sand Inhabitants on the island, and tbeobnrch was called upon to eee that no portion or tbia great field waa left destitute, call voa mrsrojvAST labor. Thp Rev. Mr. Paddock, of 8l Peter, State street, al luded to the urgent call for missionary laborers, Under the present organization of rectors there It was Imprac ticable to meet tbe wants of the whole Island. Even the BishOR, with his auxiliaries of devoted rectors andtay men, realized tbe inadequacy of their resources. The Bishop had too much to do already, and the church on tbo Island waa practically without a leader. Bishop Potter had Intended to remain silent on this subject; but be here felt called upon to say that h* had been In the habit of visiting the northern convocations and the convocations of West chester and Dutchess counties four times each year, though his relations to the Long Island con vocations had never been tbe earne as to the others, and he trusted that tbo want of hie presence would not afford an excuse for relaxing or neglecting work to bo done. He waa willing, however, that a bishop should bo assigned to Long Island, and he believed It would be a beueflt. He waa not aware that he was ex-ofllolo Presi dent of the Kings County Convocation; and be did wish them to enter Into his reasons for not vls'tlng Long Island, disclaiming, howevsr, physical Inability. Rev. Or. Lrmjuom, after a few remarks of deference to tbe Bishop, offered tbe following resolution, which was passed unanimously:? Resolved, That a Joint eommlttee of the convocations of Kings, Huffolk and Queens counties, be requested do con shier and report to the next Joint meeting of the Convoca tion*. or to each Convocation separately, what should be done to promote tbt missionary seal and activity on Long Island. The thank* of the convention were then by a unani mous vote tendered to Rev. Dr. Botftnan and hie assist ante for the uae of Grace church and the excellence of tbclr arrangements for the Convocation, and also to the Right Rev. Bishop Potter tor. hla ab e sermon in the morning. The Bimor then addreeeed some affectionate remark* to the Convention, disavowing any intention to paas cen sure on the Convocation*. He said he had been sensitive to some observations made daring the discussion, which he thought reflected unjustly on Ttlm. The evening see sion then closed witb the Gloria in KnriiU and bene diction. KKSSIO* O* TSSTKROAT MORKISO. At ten o'clock yesterday morning the business of the Convocation was resumed, the Rot. W. H Moore, Dean of the Convocations of Queens and Suffolk counties, no cupylng the chair, in tho nbsonoe of Bishop I'ottor. Ibe proceedings of tho morning were Inaugurated, as usual, br Divine service. On motion of Dr. Ltttlejohn to add the name* of two members from the Queens and Suf folk Convocations to the Jnlot Committee berctoloro up|smiled to rejKirt to the next loinl meeting of tho Con vacations, or to the Convocations separately, concerning means lor promoting missionary activity and zeal throughout the Church on th* Island, the Chair added the names of the Rev.

In this way, and for turns ranging from one hun dred to a thousand dollars, these grants have been bought np by two mahogany cutting establishments, who. with a shrewdness and foresight seldom exceeded by the most acute, got a law passed hy tbo local Legislature, called the '?Lands Tttlt act," by wbloh law all grants, on being duly registered under thte act, ware to havo the force of ''a fee simple" title to the ami, as well as to the wood growing thereon.
