Sporting Intelligence. New York Jockey Club Spuing Meeting?Se cond Day, Wednesday, May 14.?The attendance and sport yesterday were but of a very limited cha racter, although the weather was much mors favora ble for sport and agreeable to spectators. A pretty smart shower at an early hour in the morning some what improved the oourse, and laid the dust; but yet the track was very heavy. There were not more than four or five hundred persons present on the course and stands throughout the day, and these ap peared more engaged at the tables and bars than with the sport; a very striking contrast with the thousands upon thousands that were present on the previous day. The first piece of sport was a Plato Race, $600, to carry 104 lbs., three milo heats. T. Kirkman enter* br. h. Hartin, by imp. Luebuuo, 6 years old. J. K. Van Mater enter* br. h. by Mercer, out of Miss Mat tie, 8 years old. Barney mounted Sartin; and a colored boy called Jack, crossed Mercer. The betting, previous to the race, was all in favor of Sartin, who had the call, but yet not much was done on either horse. The prin cipal was on time; GO to 40 was bet that it was not done in 5.44; even on 5.55. Just previous to the start, 100 to 20 was ottered on Sartin, which was freely taken. Mercer had the poll, and at the first tap made a good start, closely waited upon by Sartin; they kept well together round the bottom to the quarter, but the pace was rather slow?they thus rounded the tot) and down the quarter stretch to the drawgate. where Sartin appeared two lengths behind, ana Mercer led the lirst mile in about two minutes.? They took it easy to the first quarter in the second mile, but on approaching the half Barney commenc ed pulling upon his animal, and gained some little upon Mercer, and continued thus to the three-quar ter ; nt the drawgate, Sartin appeared to be gently closing the gap between them, but was some two or three lengths behind at the judges' stand at the com pletion of the second mile, which was done in about 1 55. On going down for the third mile, Sar tin lessened the distance somewhat between him and Mercer, and strove hard to catch him at the first quarter, but without effect, and followed up his en deavors to the half with no better success. 40 to 100 was now olfered on Mercer., They kept on this round to the top of the three-quarter, and down to the drawgate, Barney making every endeavor to reach Mercer, but the other had the foot of him,and the Boy came in holding his horse up, and complet ing his third inile in 5 52, some live or six lengths in advance. Previous to the 2d heat,the betting was 40 to 60 on | Mercer taking the money, 60 to 40 that Sartin would take the next heat. They started well together,but im mediately fell behind close in on the track, where Barney kept Sartin's nose to Mercer's tail round to the half; and, on going round the top, appeared to bring it more forward still, but shortly after fell off again, making a gap of near a length between them. On approaching the drawgate, the cry was "Sartin has got him; Sartin has got him;" but not so, Mer cierled home the first mile about two lengths in ad vance, in about 1 58, Sartin trying hard to the con trary. Barney kept up his endeavors to catch Mer cer, but it was no go, and up the back stretch and round the top there was an evident increase of speed on both sides; and at the drawgate Sartin ap(>eared to gain on Mercer, but yet not sufficiently to catch I him effectually, and the latter completed his second mile in about 1 55, about two or three lengths in ad vance. They went forth for the third mile thus? Barney trying his utmost to come up, und appeared between the quarter und half to be somewhat more successful, as lie closed the gap considerably, but could not maintain it sufficiently so as to be of much service to him. Sartin again came up well at the drawgate, but Mercer kept his |K>sition, and led home easy three lengths in front, completing the second three miles in 5 47. The result of this race surprised the knowing ones again, and some money changed hands on the occa sion. it was little thought of that there was an ani mal in the Jersey stables that could defeat one of the Southern cracks, in a three mile race. The riding of Mercer's jockey was much admired; he rode with great skill ana judgment. The following is the summary:? Firit heat. Second heat. Mr. Van Mater's Mercer, (Jack,) 'i 0 1 58 1 ?>.'> I 55 1 57 1 54 A A3 5 47 The next piece of sport announced was a purse of $50 entrance, $10 added, nule heats. D. Tomi enter* gr. h. by Monmouth Eclipse, out of Mos> Rose, * years old. Ch?. (>. Lloyd enters ch. h.by Monmouth Eclipse, dim by Oscar, A years old. Wm. Shaw enters gr. m. by Duane, out of Jewess, A years old. K. Ten Broeck enters b. m. by Zingaree, dam by Con tention, 4 years old. Only Mr. Ferris's gr. h. and Mr. Lloyd's ch. h. showed on this occasion. They are hall' brothers by Monmouth Eclipee. The chestnut, a most beautiful looking creature,of a very bright color, drew the ad miration of all present j he was ridden by the youth. Wm. Haggerty, in a pink jacket and blue cap; and die other by Jtunes Munroe, in red jacket and cap.? Previous to the race the betting was even, the ches nut die favorite. They went forth in very pretty style, the grey ha ving the poll. They kept together to the quarter, where the grey looked very like a winner, as he had increased the space between them, but on (Hissing the half the chestnut went in front, hut not without great endeavors on the part of the other to prevent it, and kept well up with him to the three quarters, round the top and down the quarter stretch to the draw gate, where the chestnut led about a length in advance, well pushed by the grey, but the oilier led home about u length and a halt in front, in 1 min. 52 sec. Previous to the start for the second heat 20 to 5 was offered on the chestnut, with but few or uo ta kers. The grey went well oil at the start, having a little advantage, but ere he reached the quarter, the chestnut took it from him,and maintained his po sition to the one half. Round the top it looked as if the chesnut was going to run away from the other .ill together, but at the three quarters the grey pushed in a little, reducing the space between tliein. Coming down the quarter stretch 10 to 1 was ottered ou the chestnut, withfldie grey on the inside, andnotwidi standing a bold push made by his rider, the chestnut came in some six lengths in front, in 1 min. 5t>4 sec., winning the purse with ease. Incidents of the Great Race on Tuesday.? Immediately after the first heat, the next diing in importance to the race itself was die speedy transmission of the news to diiferent quarters, and sundry |iersons connected with the newspa per press were on the qui vive for that purpose. About ten or twelve pigeons were sent off with the tidings, Koine to Philadelphia, odiers to this city. At lirst they kept hovering about the course fully a quarter of an hour?now in one direction, now in another?at one time disappearing, and again returning to repeat dieir llight. What became of the Philadelphia birds we have not yet learned, but it a[>pears that of those which started for this city, those freighted with the intelligence for this ofiice performed their task?in other cases it was a complete failure, but in ours the winged messengers flew with amazing celerity and promptitude to their habitations, enabling us to announce the intelligence long before all others. Two large trees that grew on the left and not far from the Judges' stand, were occupied by at least three or four score of individuals, who were deter mined to see the race and the whole race. Nome of these climbers went to a dangerous altitude, and others clung to the extremities of branches appa rently unfit to bear them. In one instance, this un nrudent exposure of life and limb was nearly proving huritulto two persons, one of whom, supported by a slender branch, laid hold on one ubove hun.on which another person was perched, and the result was they both came to the ground, but luckily unhurt. Mr. R., a respectable merchant oi this city, was precipitated from the top of a high omnibus, during the excitement of the race, when it appeared as it some powerful impulse passed through the crowd, like the hen vines of an earthquake. He bloke his collar bone. During the interval between the first and second heats, there was a decided determination of the crowd on the great stand from the ends towards the centre, where the stairs were placed and nearly oppo site the Judges' stand. Curiosity to learn the exact time, to see me horses, and the second start, and pro bably irksomencss, arising from the heat and prea sure, were causes of this movement. Me this as it may, when they had produced a regular jam from the stairs, and within twenty yards of them, a sud den, simultaneous shout arose, "fall back, fall back," and at the same instant a retrogadc motion of the dense mass took, place in great confusion. The plat form had given way, precipitating three persons fif teen or twenty feet into the regions below. One of the three caught hold of a beam in descending and recovered his nlace above ; the other two were hurl upon a faro table uninjured. Thistnight have proved a very fatal casualty; the panic produced was power- i ful, and had it not been arrested in time to stop the retreat, the consequence would have been that the outer board wall, three-und-a-half feet high, that protected the platform, would have been forced out and five hundred or a thousand jiersons precipitated thirty feet. The writer was seated on this barrier at the time, and can safely say that had the rush con tinued a few seconds?perhaps one second longer? bad consequences woald inevitably have ensued; and of this most nppeared sensible, for consternation sat on every face. The crowd hud hardly recovered their senses, when a noise ;tnd hubbub in the rear of the stand and outside the entrance doors, attracted all eyes.? )? They're at it?there's a row?pitch into it?damn it,what cracks," and various other exclamations and notes of admiration were heard around. And so it was, a regular set-to. From the stand it appeared something serious,and as if a large number were en gaged. ft turned out, however, to be a single com bat ; one of the champions appeared under shelter of the rear wall of the stand a few minutes after,under going the process of lavation at the hands of a friend. He appeared badly hurt and much exhausted. He wore a bad scar on his throat?his eye was hound up, and his face showed symptoms of great pain and extravasation. We suspect there was some foul play used ; the discomfited was small, delicate in person, and had only one solitary individual to comfort him. | Races Today over the Union Course, L. I.? There are four entries for the two mile race, and two for the purse of $300, three mile heats. The betting on the first race is two to one against any named horsev Some good sport is anticipated, but should the weather prove stormy, the whole of the races will come ofT on the following day. Four special trains will run for the Course from South Ferry, Brooklyn, at Jty, 10|, 11?, and 12fc o'clock. Affairs in Albany.?Judge Southcrland still sur vives, but his dissolution is hourly expected. In the Senate this morning, the bill appropriating the surplus $197,000 among the unfinished public works,gave rise to an animated achate. Attempts were made to | amend it by reducing the appropriations, but without ef fect, and the bill passed by a vote of 14 to 0 ; 9 members absenting themselves since tho vote on the convention bill. The democratic members who refused to act with the Whigs, on the convention bill, sought the aid of the wliigs to carry this bill. The committee of conference have agreed upon a sub stitute for the certiorari bill. It amounts to a general re hearing of claims before the canal board. The bill to reduce the rate of interest has been reported for the action of the Senate. This is an indirect way of reporting against the bill. ? The bill to allow a drawback on mineral coal brought on the Kric Canal from Buffalo,(the Beaver Meadow coal, 1 believe) is reported uj>on adversely. The several railway bills were reported to the Senate. Tho Rochester Bank and Commercial Bank of Albany bills were rejiorted complete. An adverse report upon the bill for a divorce to Mrs. Van Riper was made. The bill which passed the House yesterday afternoon to amend the act in relation to common school education in the city of New Vork, was reported for the action of the Senate. It was laid bu the table, with the understand ing that that was the last of it. In the House the following bills were passed For preservation of public waters from coal, tar and re fuse ot gas houses in the city of New York. To incorporate the Brooklyn African Tompkins Asso ciation. To incorporato the New York C.allery of fine Arts. In relation to the Municipal Court of tho city of Brooklyn. In relation to the Marine Hospital and its funds. For the settlement of the accounts of John R. Brodhead. To facilitate the construction of Morse's electro-magne tic telegraph. In relation to judgments upon recognizances in New York. In relation to liens croated in favor of mechanics. To allow transcripts of judgments from Justices' Courts to be transferred to other counties, then to become a lien upon real estate. To raise a fund for building an alms liouso in New York. To incorporate the Laborers' Union Benevolent Society in New York City. Concerning the Croton water stock in the city of New York. The House, having disposed of all its material busi ness, except the Brooklyn ferries aud the supply, at on early hour took a recess. The dry weather has ?o reduced the water in the Hud son, that the navigation is somewhat impeded. Individ ual exertion, thanks to John Tyler, wilt have to be re sorted to to keep open a clear communication between your city and the western States. The flag was hoisted ou the capitol to-day, and a sa lute fired in honor of the event. The Seuate vote on tho railway bills, at their recess, at half post 7 P. M. It is more' than probable that all will pass. The amount of tolls taken on all the canals, from the opening to the close of the lirst week of May, is $316,837 against $3-23,819 last vear. In the House, the Brooklyn ferries bill was defeated once, and then the vote reconsidered. What followed af tor 1 know not.?Lii ingiton'i .llhamj Letter, May 13. Latest from Albany.?The Albany Argiu of yesterday was received last night. It contains the beginning of the closing scenes in the Legistature : Exkcvtivk Vk.to.?Last night Governor Wright re turned the bill in relation to the Canals, with his objec tions. It came in between 8 aud 9 in the evening, and occupied more than an hour in the reading. It is an able document, presenting the objections to the bill with the Governor's accustomed clearness and ability. We i shall lay it before our readers this morning. Tfce house proceeded to reconsider the vote on the bill, and the vote stood A6 for to 61 against it. The constitution re quiring a vote of two-thirds of nil the members present, the bill was lost. The house adjourned at about mid night. The bill originally passed the house by a vote of 68 to '28. and the Senate by u vote of 14 to 9. Lkuislativk Scmmakv?In the Senate in the afternoon, Mr. Lott reported in relation to the net relative to tho sale aud distribution of the volumes of Natural History, accompanying the report with the opinion of the Su preme Court on the subject ; and the committee were dii-charged from the further consideration of the subject. The several Railroad Bills were ordered to a third read ing. The Senate, at 6 P. M., were engaged in the third reading of bills. The bill to incorporate the Now York Academy of.Music was lost, 14 to 14. In the afternoon, the bill in relation to rail road con tracts, or debts, came down from the Senate. Objections to its immediate passage were innde. hut finally with drawn ; it being understood that tho rail road bills in the Senate were hanging upon its passage. It was accord ingly read a third time and passed. The New York and Brooklyn ferry bill was taken up. Mr. Morrison opposed its passage. Mr. Jones moved the previous question, and the House sustained the call. The vote stood veas 81, nays 20, lacking five votes. Mr. Bailey moved a recon sideration, and it was carried, yeas 76, nays 17. At H P. M. the bill was under discussion. The Senate w as in session at midnight, and the House adjourned ahont that hour. Death of Judge Sutherland.?At half past six yesterday afternoon, this eminent and highly esteemed citizen expired in this city, whence ho had recently re turned from a southern visit, made for the recovery of his health. Finns in Honto*.?On Monday morning, a tem porary carpenter's iihop in a court, opposite the chapel in street, erected by Dr. John Bacon, while a dwell ing home belonging to hiin was undergoing alteration, wns set on fire. The dwelling house was nearly de stroyed. Loss about ft.100 ; insured. The fire commu nicated also to an unfinished brick dwelling house in the same court, owned by Stetson & Currier, masons, which was damaged to the amount of about $-JOO : Insured. The rears of two wooden dwelling houses, occupied by S. L. Woodward and U. Wormon, were injured to the amount of about $'ift0 each. They were owned by Sam uel < urtis, and were insured. Before this lire was extin guished, an alarm came from Belknap street, where the livory stable of Alvah Trull was set on tiro in the rear. The lire was extinguished with trifling damage. While thr engines were ni this spot, the carpenter's shop ot Wm. I'. Tolman, in the rear of No. 41 Southack street, wa* discovered to be on llio, generally believed to have been set, and was speedily enveloped in flame*. It quickly extended to a large three story wooden dwelling house in Iront, No. it, owned by Joshua Ben nett, of Hillerica, and occupied by Isaiah Ruby, cartman, colored man, ami others, which was much injured. Some of the furnituro was destroyed. V smail stable, occupied by Huby, was also burnt. His horse was got out. The fire extended easterly to the rear of 4 houses fronting on llsrdtn street, No. U0, occu pied by Simeon Bnierton. whin-maker, the shed ot which was injured ; No. 31, occupied by John K. Shepard, pro- i vision dealer, which was somewhat injured, and the shed of which was considerably burnt ; No. 33, occupied by Mrs. Ayer, which was injured to the amount of seve ral hundred dollars ; No. 3.'\ occupied by John Brown, i machinest, the roof of which was destroyed in the rear, i and the house damaged to the amount of about $.'>00.? ' Southerly, the dwellings of Mr. I.eavitt, No. I Warden I street Court, Joseph Vlles, No. 9 ; an unoccupied house, . No. 3 ; the dwelling of Hufus K. I,add, No. I ; and John I Hoss, mason, No. j, were nearly destroyed, with much | of their furniture. A small wooden house, between 1 May street ami Warden street was aliout half burnt. ' Mr. I.add lost nearly all his furniture. His loss is par- < tially covered by insurance at the Mechanics' Mutual Office. We have reason to think the estimate of loss by the |

Castle Garden.?The second opera night at Cas tle Garden attracted last evening an audience, which would have been considered extremely large in any great theatre, but in that colliseuni-like archi" tectural structure, the mass of moving heads ap peared like as many black dots on white canvass. Considering the peculiar circumstances of this new and original movement, Seiniramide was?taking all in all, very creditably performed, and afforded much pleasure to the public. Piccola Diva was in uncommonly good tune and spirits, and probably added many new admirers to her old ones. Ma jocchi, after having rusticated a year and a half in lovely Bloomingdale, where she assisted Valtellina i in the highly interesting occupation of improving | the growth of cabbages of every description, appear-1 ed again on the hot boards of a theatre. She has, j indeed, improved very much. Her grand air, Oh bel ruggio lusinghicro, was very well given, and deservedly applauded. In general her performance presented many good points, although she was de ficient of dramatic power in the moritauxd'eiistm blt. Valtellina looked daggers, as usual; but, not withstanding, sung uncommonly well. Antognini'a excellent method will always be considered some compensation for the hy-gone freshness of his voice, hilt what, in Apollo's natne? makes him scream so awfully ! It is extremely fatiguing to him and to the listener, and must necessarily spoil all the concerted pieces, where nobody is heard but him. Does he perhaps wish to perform all alone a i/iun trllc on his throat, as Ole Bull Joes on the violin ! We sincere ly advise him to discontinue this bad practice of ri valling the charcoal man, and to sinn beautifully, as he can do. Mr. Beanies wielded the baton much better than on the first night; he does tolerably well for a beginner,and shows much talent,but thetaskof leading an opera like Semiraniide is rather too much for a tvro. we advise him to turn his attention towards English Opera, where a leader is so much wanted, and where he may prove very useful.? What we have to condemn is the liberty he took : in leaving off the two strokes on the drums, in . the beautiful chorus preceding Semiramide's en trance. It entirely spoiled the character of the I piece. A leader is the slave of the composer, as die , orchestra ought to be of the leader. It is true this j is an inde|>endent, glorious country, on whose ban- i ner, "liberty," is inscribed with adamantine letters; I but there ought _ not to be taken any liberties with j j liberty. Speaking of leaders, we cannot but observe that the " leading business" is in a very confused state in New York ; which may in some measure account for the inefficiency of our orchestras. It is divided between too many individuals, each of whom leads once or twice'a year, and none of them can therefore acquire the requisite practice which alone can make n good leader. There are several amongst them w-ho are very clever in instrumental music, but with regard to Ojiera, we entirely are at the mercy of Hapetti, who is generous enough not to abuse his power. Why does Mr. Timm, whose accompanying on the piano is unsurpassed by any one.in this country, and perhaps in Europe too, not turn his attention towards this branch, which cannot fail to bring him honor and money. The season at Castle Garden has now fairly be gun, and we have not the least doubt that the public will sustain an establishment that has not its equal in die world. It is a magnificent place, and would make a splendid locality for grand musical festivals, if the echo would not he so overpowering.? The opera unquestionably will draw lor some time, and perhaps may do so for ever, if the illusion would not be bo much destroyed through this undress rehearsal?opera?concert, that neither "fish nor man is." We do not sec the reason why the singers and the chorus should not appear in cos tume, yet Qby leaving the scenic arrangements as they now are, and which the public readily would excuse, fully aware of the limited capacity of the stage, Castle Garden then could be a summer Opera Theatre for many years, and its success would be without a parallel. Establishments of that kind are not new in Europe, and in Germany particularly every large city has an entirely open summer theatre called "arena," in its vicinity, which is connected with the principal theatre, where the same perform ance takes place in case of bad weather, i^ome of them are built like Franconi's circus in Paris, with sliding roofs, which are closed when it rains. By die by, what a glorious circus Castle Garden would make, not like tiie "cheap and nnnty" shilling cir cuses, hut one a la Franconi. Is there no enterpri sing individual, who would import some of Franco ni's equestrian or human stars \ Here is a gold mine that has not yet been explored, and nothing is easier than to do it; for we see by foreign papers that some of his members have formed a company which cre ates at present an immense sensation 111 Germany, plaving to crowded houses at an admission of one dollar.

Border Troubles.?The Sheriff of one of the counties of Missouri, bordering upon the north ern line, when attempting to executc a writ for a breach of tlio peace, was assailed by a number ol' person! of Daviess county, Iowa. The prisoners, whom tlio Sheriff had arrested, were rescued, and the Sheriff himself taken into custody, for exercising illegal authority within the territory. The trial came off last week before Judge Morgan, of tho District Court, and resulted in the con viction of the Missouri Sheriff. The punishment is im prisonment in the penitentiary. The Judge sentenced him to ten days' confinement ; but before the sentence could be carried into execution. Gov. ( hambcrs granted pardon. Mow long are the people of Missouri to tolerate those outrages I Something definite should be done speedily, to settle the vexed question of boundary. At present, the people within the disputed territory enjoy the right of voting at our elections, and are represented in our legislature ; yet, when it does not suit to acknow ledge the jurisdiction of the State, they claim to belong exclusively to Iowa. By a law passed by the last Legis lature, the Governor ot this State is authorised to take measures to bring the question before the I'nited States Supieme Court This is the proper tribunal, and no time should be lost in placing the subject in such position that a decisio 1 may be obtained at the next term of that Court. The dispute is a source of annoyance, to all living along the line, and if not settled by "some compe tent tribunal shortly, may lead to more unpleasant diffi culties than have yet occurred. ?

Trains of cars leave Boston and Albany every morning, each train carrying iOO tons of merchandise, running at an average rate of 12 miles an hour, or 100 miles a day, in cluding stoppages.

Morey vs. Darin Proromt.?This was un action of trespass, to recover damages for alleged slander, which had been uttered by defendant in the summer of 1843 The parties reside iu South Williams burgh. It appeared that in the summer of 1843, the slan derous words imputed, were uttered in conversations had with several witnesses, viz.:?"Did you not hear a leport about Morey f?there is a bad report about him it is said that he milks cows not his own." After the ex amination of some witnesses, a non-suil was moved for, on the ground that the declaration did not set forth the necessary ingredient to constitute the offence alleged, namely, the imputation as to criminality. The words "milks cows not his own," may imply that the plnintifl' mny milk the cows of any party, with their own con sent, and the declaiation was, therefore, void. Tho Court hereupon granted a nonsuit, on the ground stated. The ingredient in relation to the imputation as to criminality, not being introduced in the pleadings, aflords prestimp ti\ e evidence that the defendant was not deemed alto gether deficient in that quality, which the immortal Shakespeare would call "the milk of human kindness," though stating that Morey was in the habit of "milking his neighbors cows," and therefore the slanderous offence was not proven. lor plaintiff, Mr. Jordan; for defendant, Mr. Whiting.

Jenkins, but was extinguished in a lew minutes and before any damage took place. Fire Company 14 and several others were in attendance in a short time after the alarm was given. The fire took its origin from some straw which was in a room attached to the kitchen, and it is thought some of the servants, in passing from one room to the other, must have let a spark drop from n candle into it. The family of the house had just retired to bed, and were at first surprised by the smoke rushing through the apartments, when Mr. Jen kins' son-in-law repaired down stairs immediately, and on opening the kitchen door, was forced back into a hull-way by the tlames ; fortunately he escaped uninjured.

He gave them uu and stated that he bought them of the accused, who also kept a thread and needle store some where in the region of the points, for about a dollar a piecc. The principal witness for the prosecution, Dolan, tes tified that he bought the ribbon about the 1st of January, and had seen them about a week before at her shop.

Parson.?.Issault and Mattery.?This.was an action of trespass.to recover damages for assault and battery, alleged to have been committed on the Id of February, 1841, at the Pacific Ho tel, in this eity, by one of the proprietors. It appeared in evidence that the plaintiff was residing at the hotel as a boarder, and not having duly paid up his board received notice to quit His trunk, however, was detained in lieu of payment, and his room was locked up. The alterca tion out of which the alleged assault and battery was committed, arose in consequence of plaintiff having' gone back to the hotel, forced his way up to the room he occu pied, and breaking open the door, in order to get out his trunk. The defendant forced him down stairs, when lie clung to the bannisters on the staircase, and was eventu ally ejected. The defence put in was, that Cook, the plaintiff, beinif in arrears, and wanting to " do" the hotel-keeper out of his board-money, he (the hotel keeper considered) had a perfect right, in accordance with the provisions of the statute, to place a lien upon plaintiff's trunk, and to re move him from the premises alter due " notice to quit," and the legal demand of pay for his board,upon the gene rally recognised principle ; that after those requirements of the statute were duly complied with. Coot; was a tres passer, and was no more required either in tho kitchen, or elsewhere on the premises, and his ejectment was a perfectly legal and " pacific" procedure on the part of the proprietor of the Pacific Hotel, who holds that " every man's house is his castle." The jury after u short deliberation rendered a verdict for defendant. In Chancery. Before Vice Chancellor McCotln. May 14?Decisions?George I). Post rs. Jllhert II. Dorr, el. al.?Cor rt.?In this case a petition was presented on the part of the complainant in relation to tunds in the hands of a receiver, praying that the receiver may pay over the moneys arising from rents on account of defi ciencies arising from the sale of property. This applica tion was opposed on the part of the purchaser. The whole question here is first, whether the rents, which came through the hands of a receiver, should be paid over to meet the deficiencies at the sale ; or, whether the funds should be paid over to the mortgager. I come to the opinion, that the complainants are entitled to this money; having procured the appointment of a receiver they are cntitleo to have this money applied, instead of allow ing it to go into the hands of tho mortgager or his assignees. The order is to pay over these moneys to complainant. Khz a fan Colt rs. Charles J. I'an Cott.? Dicorse .? Coi b i.?This case conies before me asking for a new trial of the feigned issues, as to whether the defendant committed adultery, the jury having found that defend ant was guilty of the crime of adultery, upon the testi mony as presented in the case, which comes before me, on that ground for divorce. I think the verdict of the Jury is not to be set aside on the ground presented before me; and 1 likewise am of opinion, that the affidavits do not furnish any sufficient grounds for setting aside the verdict; and if the defendant was at all entitled to a new trial, it must he because the Judge erred. But the Judge has rftlcd upon the testimony given on the trial. Two police officers. Seward and Joseph, were sworn upon the trial, and the fact w oh proved by them. The objection is not as to the competency of those two witnesses, but as to the testimonj . after it was given. I consider that after the testimony was concluded, it was in the discre tion of the Judge to refuse to allow any further examina tion of witnesses. It is not such a case as when a party is injuriously affected by the rules of evidence. I am full) sustained iu these views in the case of " Willough by, 3d Hill." The next is ns to the admissibility of a w itness named Osborne, with whom it w as intended to implicate his w ife. This evidence would be admissible inn collateral suit, but is not sufficient ground for dis turbing the verdict. This motion for a new trial istheie fore denied. Court Cnlemlar?Thla l>ny.

Celebration of the Anniversary or Robert Owen'i Birthday?Fourier Stock on the Rise. Last night there was quite a re-union ol the vari ous philanthropists. Socialists, Fourierites, Brisbane ltes, Colhnites, and the different disciples of the ma ny cliques that have for thwir common object the Augean task of remoldeling human nature, and the present desperate condition of society. The im mediate and ostensible cause ot this gathering ol the clans, was the celebration ol the seventy-fourth anniversary of the birth day of their great leader, Robert Owen ; but we suspect that apart front that, there existed a lingering wish to try the effect of on? more social meeting on the old plan, previous to their giving their final plunge into the cold water bath of the new order of things, as proposed by this Spartan band of regenerators. Ik* that as it may, there is no doubt that all the various cliques were most energetic in showing their complete abandon of feelings on the occasion. The party was held in Franklin Hall, in Chatham Square, and the room was brilliantly lighted up, and adorned with banners bearing the various mottoes of the sects. There was a full orchestra, and about seventy coupleB of both sexes kept up the dancing with much spirit? country dance, Snanish dance, cotillion and waitx following in rapid succession. Refreshments were handed round in the intervals, and the "young Ame rica," of the regenerators evinced the great perfec tion to which good breeding has been cultivated among them. Inconsequence of the absence of Mr. Owen, the speeches which were anticipated still re main unuttered, though an address to their leader, us their common father, and congratulatory in its pur port, was read by a gentleman. Altogether, we think this one of the most recheirhe parties that has taken place during the season, ana pitting the So cialists against the sugar hogshead aristocracy, we decidedly think the former are ahead in the race of getting up entertainments, though some allowance must be made for the time the latter have lost in their education in qualifying themselves for the wearing of the ribbon of the court of bankruptcy. Hoard of Education. This Board held their regular meeting last evening. The minutes of the last meeting were lead and ap proved. Yorkvillt Schools?The Committee to whom was re. ferred the application from the Trustees of the Yorkville School, asking an appropriation of $1,900 to aid them in carrying on the School in that vicinity. It appeared that the Common Council authorised the Comptroller, who died in 1843, to draw his warrant for the required appro priation, hut the Comptroller did not do so, and applica tion was made to the Board for reliet in the premises. Mr. Kly, on the part of the Finance Committee report ed adversely, on the ground that a question of law waa involved in relation to the granting of the required ap propriation. The re [tort was .referred to a special com mittee.

Mr. Skidmork moved that the resolution be laid on the table, as he had a very important report to make in the premises. Me. Dknnv seconded the resolution. M. Nicoll trusted that the motion would not be al lowed for one moment to pass. The law called upon I them to apply to the Common Council to pay over this money. Mr. Skidmork contended the board had a right to let the resolution lie on the table. Mr. Rich considered the resolution ought to be al lowed to pass. Mr. Skidmohk.?Last year a similar attempt was made to pass a resolution of this kind, when remarks were made questioning the legality ol'paying over such mo neys. Mr. Rich voted for such a resolution some time last \ ear, and would do so now. Dr. Sw?:?:.m:y wished to inform the board, that there were teachers employed, who when they performed their duties, it would be an act of cruelty to postpone payment when they performed their duties with fidelity, It would be an act of cruelty on the part of thtf board to delay one moment paying them for their services. If there was a special case, in which there was a sufficient ground for delaying the payment, it was right to investi gate ; but, if on the contrary,.no such ground existed, it would be cruel to dulay. Mr. Sk11)mor?: had an important report to present, and delay for a few moments ought not influence immediate action on the resolution. The resolution was laid on the table?Ayes 13, noes 11.

Ayes 15, noes 9. The resolution offered by Mr. Kngs, noticed above, was adopted, with the amendment giving tho Board control us to carrying out its provisions.
