Dup&ez's, Appearance and Voice.?On his firs appearance in London the Reviewer 6ays: "Th entrance of Duprez as Arnold, supporting his fa th*r, was the signal of an immense reception for th new comer. It was remarked, near us, 'how shoi he is in stature ' Certainly Duprez is not moulde after nature's finest proportions. He has not th personal advantages of Nourrit, which enabled th latter to copy the ancient statues, but there is muc intellectuality in the face of Duprez, and his actio is easy, graceful, and dignified. That he has tli elan o! genius, he subsequently established. Th first qualities recognised were his admirable ae cent and articulation. His facility was truly won dcrfui. Every syllable was distinct, and no traci could be found of the nasal sounds so disagrceabf in French singing. In the charming passage, ' M i tilda, though we sever,' the breadth of his cuntahil was m inifest. In this little hit of tender melody h infused the most impassioned expression.

He again brought his action in this court for the quarter's rent prior to 1st February, 1841, and lor the next accruing quarter. The Arst quarter was not allowed by the jury, hut on the trial the presiding judge allow ed the Justice of the Marine Court to state the testimony before him. for the purpose of showing in what the eviction consisted, so as to admit testimony in restitution ol posses-ion. It appeared that the demised premises were a store, &c., and that the eviction was an entering and carrying away the store fixtures A verdict was had for the plaintiff, to which the defendant took exceptions?1st, that the judgment in the Marine Court was conclusive of an eviction previous fo 1st February, 1841, and secondly, that plaintiff ought not to have been permitted to allow Judge Hammond to prove what was the testimony introduced before him, and what were the lacts constituting the eviction. Cpon those two points the Court decided (the other two points raised being immaterial) that admitting the plaintiff was bound to prove the defendant in possession during 'he last quarter, their impression was he could da this by nfTering the same evidence that was given on'.he former trial, with such an addition as he could furnish, and such repetition of proof in this suit was not competent to gain say the former decision ?it was good only to show the eviction did not continue. II this was the same point formally adjudicated ou, it was not in reference to the same claim or demand, but only in respect to a quarter's rent subsequently accruing. As to the former quarter, the ludre and Jury sustained the former decision ; as to the subsequent quarter, the former decision was not conclusive, nor did it exclude a renewal of the contested facts of eviction, as applicable to the rent subsequently accru nig. rue tormer decision was only conclusive ax to ine former rent, anil presumptive at to the future accruing quarter. If, then, the landlord could show that in fact h> hail never evicted the tenant, it was an answer to presumption of continued eviction ; hut such proofs could not aft'ect the decision ax to the former quarter.

She had in her arms a fine chubby boy aliout nine months old; it was neatly dressed and both the mother and child seemed to interest not only thi court and jury, but the whole audience. The defendant, who is reputed to be a doctor, was also in court, and his manner and behavior indicated anything but repentance for the seduction ol his unfortunate victim and the disgrace and destitution it will entail on her during the rrinainder of her life.

It is of no sort of consequence whether dj they may be friends of Clay or of Van Buren for 'lie next Presidency. The principal inquiry is, a "Hre you in favor of city reform, economy, hard tu work, temperance, the Bible in the public schools, jj and the complete abolition and overthrow of all at- m tempts by ecclesiastics of all kinds, to interfere |lf with political or civil Affairs'!"

My _t school book, in my boyish days, was the Ilible? se King James's Bible?the Protestant Bible. Yet 1 never found that the reading of that Bible at school ever left any bad effects behind.

So far as we are able to po n the provisions of this bill, it seeni9 to be a a > d one, the only objectionable feature being that dil J9e which gives to the present corporation the wt rer ot making all appointments under it for four de rs.

Still, w ve ver, sooner than want the bill for another year, JJJ would let it pass as it is. Though the locofo- ru i should have the appointment of the new po- w ! officers, we must recollect that the new Corpo- j* ion will have the supervision of them, and the Q, n who would neglect his duty would very spee- c< |t be discharged Indeed, we are rather disposed hj believe that if the officers were appointed by the (, ofocos, they would be much more likely to dis- m urge their duty with fidelity and efficiency, and new corporation to watch them more strictly, tt in if they were appointed by the latter. ^ Reach's Last Hoax. ? On Saturday last the mmunily were very much exasperated by being <1 posed upon by a ridiculous hoax, issued by that J* mufacturer of hoaxes of all kinds, whether in d aking or anything else, that offers the pros|>ect "turning a penny," Moses Y. Beach. This hoax 0i .a in the form of an extra, giving an account of !j! ; arrival at Charleston, S. C., of a balloon from w igland, and extracts from the journal of the voya- ll urn. When this blundering blockhead had an i( ention of getting up something in the hoaxing t< e, he ought to huve engaged some person who j' d common sense and who had information t< ough to preserve localities and other necessary ^ cumstances in such a narrative. But it was so fi tnderingly got up?so ridiculously put together? jj preposterously issued, that it reminded us of one f, liiu reeent hftiiw-s in the hnnkintr line?the Jack- * iville ltank, which was equally blunderingly got , but somewhat less harmless to the public than is miserable affair. This Beach is (iniousin the way of hoaxing. He es not confine his talent in this line to moon stom?or balloon stories?but he carries it into the ancial and banking system of the country to a ry great extent. We have seen three or four of * bank hoaxes. First, we had the Ulster Bank j ax?that exploded as the hoax of Saturday. Then t : had the Malone Bank hoajc?that also exploded j the hoax of Saturday. Then came the Jacksonle Bank hoax, and that likewise exploded, as ery body who held any of its notes will probably member without our jogging their memory. At j ssent,he is very busy with a certain bank in New i rsey and is endeavoring to re-issue its circulation ' on the .lower classes of society to a very great i tent. Wc advise them, however, to take care j this hoax-man hereafter. The New York city < .nk notes are the thing. No hoax about them. ' A Vjsiteh on 'Change.?On Saturday last, . very respectable visiter made his appearance in , e Exchange, and created a good deal of sensa- j >n in that bustling mart. It was no less a personc than Jacob Barker, Esq., formerly well known 1 this city, and now an eminitnt citizen of New , leans. Mr. Barker arrived here on Friday last by the ly of Mobile and Charleston froni New Orleans. 1 his way he fell in with Mr. Clay, and had a lgthencd conversation with him about the Texas estion, the particulars of which, however,we are it authorized to give. At Washington he called on iptain Tyler, and saw how things were going on that quurter. Mr. Barker is well known in this untry as being one of the most remarkable and iginai-minded men that has ever appeared nongst the mercantile classes in Wall street. His eat genius?his intimate familiarity with all the tails of commerce and finance?and his fertile lagination in creating plans and forming schemes armed many of the financiers that figured in rall street twenty "years ago, and they commenced most vindictive and utterly groundless persecuin against him, which terminated in their signal scomfiture. Mr. Barker now finds that these en, his former enemies, are sadly down in the tel, or to speak more poetically, "in. the sear pid illow leaf," whilst he; himself, witli a renovated ime, a flow of spirits utmost approaching to Hithfulness, and a firm and clear intellect, is in e full tide of prospexity in the great metropolis of e South. Mr. Barker was received with great respect and irdiality by his old friends on 'Change. Rockland Ick Co.mpany.--We understand that is compauy commence operations for the sean this day.

The parties have recently signified their intention to go through Chancery, and have in couformity thereto taken the necessary legal steps. At the time above referred to, the parties were arrested and extimincd before the I'olico Court, and some dozen of our heaviest and most respectable merchants appeared and gave evidence against the (lie firm on a charge of conspiracy with intent to defraud. This evidence covered a wide field, but was deemed by the Court insufficient, even on a primary examination, to implicate them, and they were accordingly discharged. Evidence was then submitted to the Grand Jury, and yesterday, at the heel of their mission, an indictment was returned to the Court. Thin morni< g at 10 o'clock, the parties were arraigned. They are well known in Albany and New York, having had considerable business connexions in those cities. The circumstances have created much sensation in this community, and now,that a definite prosecution has been commenced, we l'eel at liberty to ine.ntion the case at length. The parties appeared voluntarily in Court this morning, and without being arrested. The indictment against them contains forty-live counts, based upon filteen different transactions, being a set of three counts devoted to each transaction. It would not be very edityingto detail all the particulars of these counts, and we will briefly give the substance of the gravamen The amount of goods involved in these transactions, is from eighteen to twenty tt ousand dollars William 1'.
