Price cents. American Affairs In Kurape ?Neutrality of France. We give on the outside of to-day's paper, several additional extracts, of considerable interest, from oar foreign papers, which refer to our relations with France and Great Britain. The Oregon question and the balance of power question seem to have excited considerable atten tion in the French Chamber of Deputies. The de bates between M Guizot, Thiers, and Berryer, up on theae matters, were of a very interesting charac ter, and resulted in ihe Ministry obtaining a majori ty of seventy eight, in sustaining a perfectly neutral position, in the event of a collision between Great Britain and the United States, upon the Oregon question. The French Ministry deny having inter fered in any way wiih the annexation sf Texas to the United States, any further than on invitation from the Texas government and of its Minister at Pans; that France had advised Texas to maintain her independence, and Mexico to recogai-e it; that it had proclaimed Texas free to adopt any course the pleased, and when once she had proclaimed her choice, she had nothing to say. This was the course Great Britain pursued in the same affair, and theae admissions confirm the statements heretofore made, that both of these governments had exerted themselves to prevent the annexation of Texas to the United States. They have had nothing to say now in relation to the result of that movement, be cause they failed in their efforts. According to the remarks of the French Minister of Foreign AlTairs, it would appear that France was more disposed to aid this country in increasing its possessions, than placing obstacles in the way. There were, at present, he said, " three powerful nations intent on aggrandizing, beyond measure, their territory?Great Britain, Russia, and the United States. That it was of the highest impor tanoe t j France that these three nations should bal ance each other's power; and that none of them should attain a preponderating influence. She was, consequently, interested in protecting the indepen dence of the American States." From the tone of these remarks, we should judge that the French Government wai more in favor of an extension of the territory of the United States, than that ot Great Britain. The neutral position determined upon by the Gov ernment of France, in the event of a rupture be tween England and America, upon the Oregon question, was considered the mdst honorable, the most profitable, and the best calculated to put an end to the war. This neutrality would be difficult to maintain. The Government and the people of France do not take the same view of matters, when Great Britain is a party interested on one bIJc, ?..d the United States on the other. Any disturbance in the peaceful relations of these two countries, would, in all probability, draw France into the affair, but not in opposition to the United States. France could not remain neutral. The Government could not maintain such a position. There is too much similarity in the principles of the people of the two countries?France and America?and too much sympathy among the masses for republican institu tion a. In the language ot M Thiers, every in crease in the power of the United States is another step towards the political freedom of France; and with this principle in view?with this tact in their mind?the people of that country will not be contented with occupying a neutral position, while Great Britain is striving to check any in crease in the power of the United States ; to crush us or restrict us in our territory. A war between the United States and Great Britain, upon the Ore gon question,wouH, without doubt, involve the prin cipal powers of Europe, which would strengthen this country in its struggles, rsther than weaken it. In connection with the-e things, it appears that on the 29th ol January, the American Minister in Londen, and Lord Aberdeen, the Minister of For eign Afiairs, held a conference of two hours, which was the subject of much remark in the political cir cle* of London. And among the passengers in the Cambria, were Mr. Bache, bearer of despatches from Mr. McLane to Mr. Buchanan; Mr. Crampton, son ot Sir Phillip Crampton, the Secretary of Lega tion to Washington, bearer of despatches from the English government to Mr. Pakenham A nothrr Severe Snow Storm.?We have again been visited with a very severe snow storm, accompa nied with a strong wind. It commenced on Thurs day night,about 11 o'clock,and continued through the night, and the greater part of yesterday, leaving snow on the ground ot an average depth of eighteen inches Early yesterday morning the wind blew quite strong trom the northwest, but it lulled some what during the forenoon, when the snow ceased, and there was a heavy fall of rain. Aftar raining a few hours, the snow again came down as merrily as ever, and continued till the afternoon, when it cleared otf, and the sun shone out brightly for an hour or two. We are much afraid that serious damage has been done to the vessels that were driven onshore in the last gale, and that other vessels may have unfortunately suf fered in addition. Ocean Steam Ship*?We are happy to find th the Government of the United States have e tered into a contract with an enterprising compar in this city, for the construction of a number steam-ships, to ply between this city and Cow en, England,and Bremen or Havre. The company are ?end a vessel twice each month for those ports, at tooarrythe United State^tnail, tor which the pr prietors are to receive $3U1,000 per year The g verament has entered into a simitar contract wt Mr. Charles Morgan, of this city, tor the conetru tion of a line of steam-ships, to run from New C leans to Galveston, in Texdk, and likewise to ear the mail, for which Mr. Morgan will receive u ttnrda of 'he net pontage. All these vessels ? to bo built in the moat substantial manner, with view of being converted into vessels of war, ease of an emergency ; and in such event, they i ?o be at the disposal of the government. We n? uardly say that this is a most important step on I part of the government, and one that will give g< ?ral satisfaction The probability now is, that I tope two years, there will be afloat a clasa of oce -reamers, that for speed, comfort, and symetry model, will reflect the highest credit on the Ama e an people Pxcxrr S*ir Yorxsmisk. -This fara t apt.

At the time the Ntw York Herald was establish ed, journalism in the United States was, in the sphere of usefulness and enterprise, very much be low mediocrity, and, in our opinion, much behind the age. We thought that there was a fair opemng for talent and enterprise, and that a paper conducted in accordance with the march of improvement, and the progressive intellect of the age, would be sup ported by the American people, and the motivea of the editor properly appreciated. With feelings like these did we start the publication of the Herald; and such feelings have been our guide and our consola tion from th- first day it was issued until the pre sent hour. We were aware that a task worthy of Hercules himself, was before us-that the combined strength of the old regime of journalism was op posed to us-that we should give an impulse to journalism hitherto unknown on this aide of the Atlantic, and incur the enmity and hostility of those wno, like the journals they edited, were far behind the age in wh.ch they lived. Nor have our predictions b-rn falsified in the least. That enmity and opposition which we foresaw at the commence ment ol our enterprise, greeted us on the first issue ot the Hn-ald, and has been continued ever since, with a spirit of malignity and bitterness worthy only of the evil source from which it sprung Un der such circumstances did we establish this journal and under such circumstances has it continued to the present time. Our conduct, from the first issueof our paper until the present time, is familiar to the public; and we know it is properly appreciated. We knew that tiie raward of our enterprise and perseverance would be meted out to us; and that, notwithstanding the many discouragements we should meet in our progress, the end at which we aimed would be finally reached, if perseverance and unconquer able energy were of any avail. Whether we have , displayed this spirit or not, our subscription list will be the criterion. Persevering in the course we maiked out for ourselves, and having but one ob ject in view, viz., ot being at the head of journal ism m Amertca-we have, necessarily, encountered and triumphed over the opposition of all our oppo nents and are now at the pinnacle of our ambition. 1 we have alr?"?dy exceeded our most san guine hopes. Surrenders are familiar with the opposition we have encountered in obtaining the European news, and sending it to them in advance of all other jour nals^ They are aware of the disreputable manner in which our motives have been blazoned to the world. On every occasion that we forwarded fo- j reign news to our subscribers and exchanges, in advance of our contemporaries, the lazy stock jobbing press of Wall street, and our sister cities have accused us of the blackest and deepest crimes. Our enterprise has been termed infamy But to us this mattered but little. We had an ob ject in view, and although we knew we should tread on the corns of our coniemiioraries.we had courage to disregard their murmurings, and continued that | course which we marked out at the commencement, is needless to say that we have succeeded; for it ? a part of the history ol the country. This enmity on the part of our opponents has, until lately, been confined to mere wind, but within a short time, the disaffected portion of the American press, or in other words, that ;>ortion of the press whose patron age we have, by our sU|>erior management and en terprise trenched upon, have formed a combination or Holy Alliance" against us, with the expectation, by one grand efron, to demolish and annihilate the we have been for a series of years so assiduous to earn. For this v*? 7,? \"* jobbing press of three cities combined. of a great outlay ot money, and appropriating a portion ot our tactics, formed a conspiracy, in connection with their friend, the devil, to break up the reputation for enterprise which we have honest ly earned, triumph for a while on our demolition, and then relapse into their accustomed state of im becility and indolence. With this view, the Holy Alliance of the stock jobbing press was formed, and their debut was an nouaced in all their journals, with the most extrava gant anticipations of victory?a victory that would consign us to the tomb of the Capulets. f faving, on a former occasion, tested their ability, and finding that, in the face of their most strenuous exertions, we would have distanced them, if casualties beyond the reach ot hum in foresight had not intervened, they deliberated for a length of time upon the prac ticability of forming a combination of their means and energy, which would forever deprive us of our reputation. They accordingly concocted a scheme by which they imagined they would distance us for ever in obtaining the news that was expected by the steamship Cambria. , ln order t0 obtain this news, and beat Uncle Sam and the " damned Herald," as they call it, they made such arrangements as they were capable of, in order ; to board the ship at Halifax, N S.. and convey the news by "exclusive and extraordinary express" to >ew York, in advance of every thing. How far they succeeded, the public already know. In fact our extra of Thursday told the story. Jn the face of those tremendous and combined efforts of our opponents, we relaxed none of our usual vigilance, but made our arrangements as usual and succeeded in beating the Holy Alltance, from four to six hours The news thus exclusively re ceived by us, was despatched to Philadelphia by a SF'k "prPW f0r ,h' State, Gazette, and published m an extra from that olfice at an early hour on Thursday alternoon. We issued an extra at noon that day, and thus the merchants of these ?wo great cities, and, indeed, those of tfie whole We are no. inclined to make any unnecessary parade ol our triumph, but m rely claim the benefit of our success We will continue to make such ar rangements in future as will place the foreign news before our readers at the earliest moment. If we be "uccrssful, so much the better; if we should be dis tanced, it cannot be helped. That's all The Herald Foreign Correspondence ?We harp received by the steamship Cambria, several highly interesting letters froin our correspondents in Liverpool, London, Leipsic, Paris, Vienna, Ber lin, flee. &c., which we will place before our readers as early as possible. Tmt Clergy and Politics ?We have heard it intimated that the clergy of this city have it in con temptation to call meetings for the purpose of expres i ug their opinion on the late refusal of our govern ment to submit the Oregon question to arbitration We cannot suppose that the clergy really intend to do uny thing of the kind; for if they do, it will be following a precedent which was condemned by the united voice of the psople a few years since. The <uergy have nothing to do with politics, and shonld not interfere with thein in any manner. If the clergy would confine themselves to their legitimate business?the saving of souls?and exert themselves al title more than they do, there would be leae immo rality in the country than there is We can assure them that the gouemnsent la competent to manage its own affairs without their interfernc* Fro* Tax as?The McKint arrived at New Or leans on the 10th inst., trom Galveston, whence she sailed on tbs 7tb inst.

Pi ax TiiKAiHk ?Madame Auguita'i benefit last eve uing, was graced by a dazzling array of neauty and fash ion The celebrated ballet of " I.a Giselle" was revived, and proved as beautiful and attractive p* ever The graceful an I accomplished Augusta danced a usual brillisney ,and her four* dr force astonur. . ? lighted all present The ballet is truty a most ue ;.i i ii one, and is got up in a very superior manner Tho new Spanish dance, entitled " ha iioleras de Cadiz," danced by Madame Augusta and Miss luce, was received with great applause and encored This evening Madame Au gusta makes her last appearaece, when the ballet of " La Giselle" will he performed, with the new diama, first time in America, called the " Cricket on the Hearth." On Mondav evening, Miss Charlotte Barnes anJ Mr. Vsndenhoir, will appear in " Romeo and ^Juliet." The celebrated Mr. Sands and his heautilul children also appear. aovtisr Theatre.?Notwithstanding tho inclemency of the weather, tho Bowery theatre was very respect ably attended last night. Three interesting dramas wore brought forward, forming, as is usual here, a vaii ety and succession of attraction .Of these pieces, " Wal lace" is decidedly a first rate production, it is lull of in teresting scenes and positions, and engages the mind, while it dies the attention. J. R. Scott impersonates the noble Wallace admirably, and Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Phil lips take prominent and interesting characters, to which they communicate much interest. Of the ' Orange Girl of Venice," much may be said in praise of the scenery and machinery, as well as of tho grouping and perform ance. but the piece itself is not deserving the name of drama, it has no plot, and is rattier u rapid succession of crowded tableaux, so numerous and so lull, and at the same time so highly colored, that while one is dazzled und astounded at the sight, there is little to occupy or lefresh the mind amid so much confusion. This fault, if any, (for to some all this is praiso,) lies entirely wi'h the author and In the conception for, the management, both as to too scenery, dress, executiou. See , am! the performers, as to their pirts in the piece, all do wall. But the author bus > ought to mako them do too much , to make too great a display, and to perpetrate too many wondets ; and hi crowding together too much thunder end lightning, and noise, and wounds, and dag gers, and astounding incidents, with death and dark deeds, and woe and dungeons, and storms, he has com pletely overdone the thing Thus, in aiming at too much he has effected a failure. But " Wallace" and the " Maid ol Muuster,"fully atone for the detects of the author of this piece, while at the same time, its gorgeous scenery and magnificent grouping, is not without cumin to the eye, and may pleaso the wondering taste of many. Howe's Circus at Pai-Mo'k?Aftra.voox Pees-ossi awce.?Noiwithstanding the inclemency of the weather, the Circus was thronged by a vury animated and respec table audience last evening. Our most wealthy and re spectable families are in fact nightly in attendance, an 1 the entertainments are alwas ot a rtcbtrche and attrac tive chaiacter. The (roups of f-questiians is one of tho best in America. The Clown is the celebrated Dan Rice, whose sallies ot wit, and exquisite conundrums spar kle like the bubbles on champaigne. But the tieauty of the dazzling airay may be found in the person ot the graceful und accomplished artitte, Madame Macarte, whose execution of the most daring and difficult teats on horseback have made her the admiration of all visiters Last eveniug she mada her second appearance in the new and glorious ballet of '-La Hylphide," which con sists of a series i f splendid attitudes orid difficult pat, all serving to display the rounded softness of her fotm, aud beautifully portray the poetry of motion. This afternoon there will bo a performance, com mencing at half past 2 o'clock. The entertainments will be of a very attractive character, aud Madame Ma carte will again appear a? "La Sylphide." The prices of admission being reduced to twenty-five cents to all parts of the bouse, families will now have an opportunity <f attending with children at a moderate expense. The bill for the evening, too, is the best we have yet seen. Mr. Corbyn, with the Swiss liell Ringers and Miss Hifl'erd, sailed on the 10th inst., from New Orleans,in tho yacht Fairy, for Galveston. From thence they pioceed to Corpus Christi and, perhaps, Matamoros, and after wards to Havana, Vera Cruz, and the city of Mexico. Miss Julia Turnbull, the dameuse, is in New Orleans, where she is drawing fashionable houses. The Keans are playing a most profitrble eni in Charleston, 8. C. They proceed to New Orleans, and may be expected here in May next.

[From the Philadelphia I'. 8 Gazette, Feb. 20.] Our special express from Boston. which we have had arranged for some time, in conjunction with Mr. Benoatt at the ,\Vw York Hmald, came through yesterday, 1-riiging the new* received by the arrival of t e steam ship Cambria. Mr. Bennett's enterprise secured the speedg transmission of the new* through from Boston to New York, and conquered many obstacles which opposed the successful achievements ol bis purpose. Our e?press rider left New York at twenty-five minutes to eleven o'clock, A. M , and delivered his packages, at this office, at ten minu'ea of four o'clock in the after noon?making th? run through in five hour* and flftaan minu es The news was received exclusively, and none of the advices by the Cambria, axcept those which came to us, reached the city until the arrival of the pilot Una from Ns't York, last night, seven hours after our recaption of the news. The express from Boston to Now York was run by the Herald iu seven hours and five minutes only. [From the New York Telegraph, Fab. 20.] The news by the Camb:ia reached this city yesterday, early in the morning, and an Kxtra containing it was issued from the Herald office, at 12 o'clock, in advance of all paper* in the city. We loam 'hat its substance was immediately communicated by telegraph to Phila delphia, and probably some peisuns there suffered a lit tle by tha operation. It is understood that three of our morning papers entered into a combination, quite far reaching in its charactor, to anticipate the Herald, but the effort was unavailing. We accord to that journal the praise it deserves for its enterprise, while we regret the severe loss of money its opponents must have sus tained by the effort (it competition. We hope that by the successful working of the magnetic telegraph, the ( presses '-here and elsewhere" will have an equal chance by an equal outlay of means. The express for the Herald, which distanced what Mr. Bennett terms the " holy alliance." came from Boston by the Worcester and Nor wich railroads to Allyn's Point, thence to Oreenport by the steamer Traveller, and from there by the Loug Island railroad to this city. The travelling time be tween tbe two cities, it is said, was aevan hours and five minu'es. [From the New York Evening Ledger, Fab. 20.] The Herald is out in more than all its original glory, for it has acquirod new honors within twenty-four hours, which uuder all the circumstances, are quita enviable. James Oordsn Bennett, Esq., is a great man in his line, and there is no use in denying it. In fact " bo can't be boat" by man or devil in the way of expresaee, any where on the continent, according to our;beiitf ; but we mav be superstitious. Wa said yesterday that he did come out ahead in obtaining the news from the Cambria he should be orowned, so far as we are concerned, "Napoleon tho Second " He may accordingly imagine himself an Em peror. And so he does, for road what ho says this morn ing : ? " It will thus be seen, that Napoleon is himself again. Our star of Austailitz is refulgent, and shines brighter then ever. The Holy Alliance of ttia stock-joboing pies* of lour cities, vsistsd by the speculators, and aid ed their old friend and ally, tbe devil, have been an nihilated by our superior enterprise and energy." No greater compliment could have been paid to the editor of Herald than that of a powerful combination of the presses of two or threo cities to outstrip him in the getting of important news. They must of course con sider nim "a foe wo worthy of all their steels," or else why the necessity of a combinatiou to vanquish him ? It would have been glory enough for a common man to have been overpoweed by such a tremendous array of opjiosition. The unequal match would have shed a lustre upon his lall and capped the climax of his great nsss, and made him great indeed. But to be the con queror in such fearful odds?to bear off the palm alone,

and richly earn tbe proud title which he witn such appa rent presumption aspired to, is iudeed thrice glorious it has rendered him immortal?at any rate be will be re memoered by some folks as long as they live. There, Mr. Bennett, we have done you justico once, if we never did so before. We concluded this crowning epistle by exclaiming, with our hearts as brimful of wild enthusiasm as ever pervaded the ranks of tha First Napoleon?Pies I' Empertur I?Viet Napolee i ! [From the New York True Sun, Fob. 20.] The Exfrksiks.?The result of the great combined express lor the conveyance of the news by tbe Cambria, extending from Halifax to Baltimore, was a decided failure. The express arraoged for the Herald, from Boston, reached this city about two hours ahead of its competitor; though it is said that tho latter reached Boston as early as the steamer. The loss by this experi ment is about 98,000 ! divided between five or eix papers in this and other cities. [From tbe New York Globo, Feb. 20 ] The Herald yesterday distanced all its rivals in bring ing on the news received at Boston, by the Cambria, and at half past 12 o'clock issued an extra, from which wo make tho following extrscta. [From the New York Gazette & Times, Feb. 19.] Tbe expresses for tee different papers arrived here this morning with the accouota by the Cambria, and from the Herald extra, which reached us first, we make such oxtracts as tbe lateness of the hour will allow. [From tho New Yoik Commercial Advertiser, Feb. 19.] Tbe express for the Herald came from Boston by tho Worcester and Norwich rail ronds to Allyn'e Point, thence to Greenport by the steamer Traveller, and from there by the Long Island railroad to this city. Tbe travelling time between the two citkie, it it said, was seven hours and five minutes. From the extra issued by the Herald we compile the following summery [From the New York Mirror, Feb. 19 ] rnmhria's now# arrived at Boston last night, and was expressed to this city by the Her*III, auJ aiii.ed in this city this forenoou. We are indebted to its extra for the following summary. [From the New York Evening Post, Feb. 19 ] The steamer Cambria, ( aptain Judkins, arrived at Boston laat evening,having left Liverpool on the 4th inst. The news was brought from Boston to this city by an express run for the Herald, to which paper we are in debted for the following extracts. [From the Brooklyn Star. Feb. 19.] Tbe Cambria, Cant. Judkios, left Liverpool on the 4th inst., and reached Boston at eleven o'clock, last night. The Herald express brought the news through (two hundred aod-fifty miles) in a little over seven hours. [From the Boston Courier, Feb. 19.] One express to New York was arranged to run over the Long Island railroad. The state of the road sets aside all calculation as to its success An express for the Ne\o York Herald was arranged to Allyn's Point, where Mr. Bennett had acotps ol type-setters on board the steamer Traveller to take the news to New York. The mails of to morrow night will tell which has con quered. [From the Boston Mercantile Journal, Feb. 18 ] The EirarssES An six ?It seems that tbe much talked of " Express" Irom Halifax to Portlaod, through Boston to New York city, with the foreign Dews by the Cam bria. was arranged by tho combined efforts and capital of tho Portland people, and some of tbe New York and Philadelphia newspaper establishments. The expense of this arrangement was enormous; eighteen hundred dollar* having been paid to the steamboat which brought the express fiom Annapolis to Portland, and its success was deemed certain. New York was to got the news full as soon as Boston, and Portland people some twenty four hours in advance. But alas for the mysterious and mammoth enterprise of New York, Philadelphia and TortlanJ combinod, the Cambria steamer Is bard to beat, and to she has proved in this instance, for the express had hardly left the city on one side before she announced her arriral on the other. Tbe best of the joke is yet to be told, and we fear that the laugh thii time will be from the other side. It seems thit Beunstt of tho New York Herald, had arranged an express from this city by rail road to Allyn's Point, and thence by the crack steamer Traveller to New York On board this boat Bennett has tyi>?. compositors and compilers, and during ita passage the whole foreign news is made up and put in type ready for tbe press immediately on the boat's ar rival in New York This express has been arranged by Mr L Bigelow of this city, and we learn that it actually left the depot in Worcester before that of tho combined press ! and of course, barring accideots, will reaeh New Vork first. We ihall hear the result to morrow morn ing. P. S. Since the above was written we are informed that Bennett's expres* left Allyn's Point at 8 o'clock this morning. Court of General beeelons.

Samusl Psi.Maa, examined by the prosecution.?He deposed as fellows: I keep e grocery and liquor store in Weat street; my store is situated about ISO feet from where the berge was moored, ea the afternoon of tbe robbery; I remember watchinjgth* boat start that alter noon, when I saw a man w bom I Judged to be Davia; I observed him standing on the larboera aide of tha beat; hie beck waa leaning against thn rounding pert oi the Indies' cabin near the atom; hie face was turned toward* me at tbe time; he waa not long stationery: he went backwards and forwards on the larboard tide several timra; ha sometimes moved out ot my sight Ha appear ed to be very uneaay, which circumatanee made me no tice U(m more particnlaflv; this occurred a abort time before the boat left; I could not see the Captain's office from where I stood, the next time I saw htm, was at the Police Office; when I went there 1 said that he, (pointing to Davia,) resembled the man I bad seen. The prosecution here rested, aud tbe case was opened for the defence The (eetimony of John D Hager, clerk of the steam boat Rsritan, and Captain Fisher, master of the same steamer; also, that of Mr Marsh, clerk in lha Bank of Rahway, N J , taken on the trial of Wm.

Jams' R Howell was then called and examined?he deposed as Inliows: I have been a gold better for 39 ;?***?; I was awhile employ *d by James Miller ll Co , a. No. J7 Hold sited: I wsnt into'heir employ on the la: ot May, l*4i, and itmained in their employ until the middle of 'larch, 1*44, my work was carried on in the j basement of Use premises; Mrs. Hortoo had Mary Am Mulur, alto two bora, war* occasionally amployad, bo- 1 aide* myself; we had a furnace constantly in use for the purpose of melting gold; the melting, after awhile, waa carried on up stairs; I am a gold beater, not a melter; I cannot exactly say what waa the extent of their buai uea?; I received my wagea every Saturday night. Thia wttDeea underwent a long and rigid cross exami i lea to | nation, in which he atated that he waa led to go to Miller for employment by aeeing an advertiaement in a news naper, to the effect that a gold beater waa wanted at No. 114 William atroet, (Parhinaou'a shop,) where he met with Miller, who employed him to work at No. */7 John street. Howell turtber deposed, that he saw a stove taken up stairs, but could not say into what room it waa taken) never went into the room In which it waa put.

Martin Duckworth et at v$ Peter .1 Bland et oi- This was an action of replevin, lor taking a quantity of groceries, from .No. 67 Charlton street, on the 8th of October, 1844 The defendants justifiod under three judgments and executions, agaiust a man named Bor chers; the defendants were present at the levy, and as sisted ia removing the goods to Fleet li Connery's store in Spring st. The plaintiffs, in answer to this defence, proved a mortgage on the goods, Irom Borchers to them selves, and that they bad reduced the mortgage goods to possession, according to the provisions of the statute. The jury found a verdict for plaintiff, for the value of the goods, and $60 damages. Robert H Osgood el al vs. Horace W. David ?This was an action oi trespass, for an alleged illegal taking oi miller's tools and other articles oi the value of $60. The plaintiffs are residents of Staten Island, and had a saw mill in Ulster county. The defendant did work for them at the mill to the amount of $16?he issued an at tachment from a Instii-e'sCourt against them for this earn, and levied on the property in question, carried it off, and sold it. The plaintiffs allege that there was an error in the attachment, and that more was levied on than was necessary. For the defence evidence was given that the debt was fairly due; that the attachment on the face of it was correct, and that if any fault was committed, it was bv the officer who executed it. Proof was also fiven that the value of the property was only about $30. erdict this morning. Special Sessions. Before the Recorder and two Aldermen. Feb. 30.?Augustus W. Clason, who pleaded guilty, last Tuesday to an assault upon Mr. James Gordon Ben nett, but whose sentence was deferred until yesterday, appeared for sentence. Mr. Oalbraith, counsel for Mr. Bennett, asked the Court to defer the sentence for the present, Clason having previously put in an affidavit in mitigation of puuishment, and Mr. Galbraith wishing fur ther time, to examine the same, for the purpose of fil ing counter statements. Mr. Clason stated that he ho;ied no further postponement would be ordered.? The Court assigned Friday next, that being the last day of the term, and the parties lelt the court room. Superior Court. Before Judge Oakley. Feb. 30.? Motet Y. Beach vt. William Mallory.?The jury in this case returned a sealed verdict in favor of the plaintiff, for $777 73 Charlet F. Buckhaldtz tt. William Mallory.?This was an action brought to recover damages for an alleged slander as to title of property. The plaintiff in this suit was a druggist, doing business in Hudson street; it ap peared that he made a purchase of drugs, etc., of the de tendant. for which he gave him his note at four months, borne two or three weeks subsequent to this purchase, the plaintiff'advertised the sale of bis stock at public sale, to take place on the 6th January last; that the delendant visited the premises of the plaintiff at about the time the sale was to commence, and as is alleged, forbid the sale, upon the representation that he held a claim or title in such stock, and threatened presecuting any and all pur chasers of such property ; and that in consequence, the sale was adjourned until two days thereafter, and that the stock brought far less than would have been the case had not the first sale been interfered with by the defend ant. For the defence, it is contended that such was not the languasre made use of; that be said he had a claim upon the plaintiff, which, if ne would be allowed to pre sent, he would give more for the stock than any one else ; beside, an attempt was made to show that the goods brought a fair value upon the day they were dis posed of, and for as much as though they haa been sold upon the previous occasion alluded to. Verdict for the defendant. Before Judge Vanderpohl Wm .Ida*it el alt vt. The Ocean Inturance Co.?In this rase, hitherto reported, the jury rendered a verdict of $10,766 14 for the plaintiffs. Charlet Knit gen it Wm M. Parkt.?This was an ae tiou of trover, brought to recover the amount of a note bearing date 18th April, 1846, at 6 months, for $1696 33, executed by Wood, Folger 8t Messer, ol this city, and whioh wm afterwards bought up by that house, on the 39th May, at the rate of one per cent per month. From the testimony presented it appeared that the cote inquestiou was given by the plaintiff in this suit to Mr James H. Ray, who was instructed to get it discounted for him at such rates as he might command. He offered this note for discount at three different banks in New ark ; failing, however, to get it discounted in this quar ter, he deposited this note with the defendant, (who is the first teller of the American Exchange Bank of this city,) for the purpose of having it discounted; upon which an advance was made, in common with other notes. It was subsequently purchased by the drawers themselves, at the rate above named, and J per cent com mission was charged by the broker negotiating the same and the proceeds were handed over to the defend ant. The plea of usury is also set up, upon which the whole case seems to rest. It appeared that almoat daily transactions of this nature had been made by these con tracting parties, (Jamei- H Ray, broker, and Wm. M. l'arks, first teller of the American Exchange Bank of this city.) for a period o' from one to two years; that or.e per cent per month had been almost invariably allowed as a consideration in the transfer of paper from one to the other, and that Ray has finally suspended business, but whetherfrom this high rate of usurious interest paid to one of the officers of the American Exchange Bank, did not in itself appear manifest. It was contended also upon the part of the plaintiff' that this note was diverted from its legiti mate sphere; that instead of having heen discounted at the legal rate of interest, it had, with other notes, been placed as collateral security for a loan of $8,609, and that having been so misapplied, by passing it over to a * broker inVVall street, it is therefore rendered invalid and without force or viitue. The jury returned a verdict in favor ef the plaintiff for the amount of $1,633 73, and 6 cents costs . Common t'leaa. Before Judge Daly. Fre 30 ?A. J. Morretl and wife vt. Ata A. Weil and wife.?This was an action for assault and battery?the families of both parties resided in the same house ; the females had a dispute about shutting the basement door, and it appeared Sirs. West struck Mrs. Slorrell with a wash stick. The case wns tiied at the last December term, and the jury disagreed -on this occasion they ren dered a verdict of $60 for the plaintiffs. Borrow, Feb. IS, 1846. Trouble in one of On Nantucktt Bank??Mysterious Absence of tlu Cashier, Hon. Barker Burnell? Tirrell't Trial. There were strange rumors afloat in this city yesterday, relative to the standing of the Manu facturers' and Mechanics' Bank, at Nantucket.? The Suffolk Bank refuses to redeem their bills any longer, end it is seid e lerge amount of tho funds of th# institution are " among the misting." The cashier ef the bank is tha Hon. Barker Burnell, now a member of our State Senate, a position to which he wee not elected bv the people, but by the Legislative Conven tion, in filling up the vacancies. Since Friday laat he has not been in his seat, end where he is " deponent sey eth not," though rumor, with her hundred tonguee, has not failad to circulate stories very much to the prejudice of toe honorable Senator's character. I hope they will prove to be unfounded, and that Mr. Burnell will soon return end give a sa iafactory account of hit stewardship. He ie quite e young man, and haa haretofore borne en irreproachable character. His father was Cashier of the bank for a long time, and rapresonted his district in Con gress for saveral yaars previona to his doath, which oc curred at Washington three or four years ago. Tho son was choeen his successor in tha bank, and ioherited also a vary handsome aetata. It is a melancholy sight to wit ness tho ruin of n young man, with such flattering pros pects before him, end 1 cannot but hope that the painful rumors uow prevailing here,are vary much exaggerated. Tou will nave observed hy the papers that Ttriall was arraiged on Monday, and pleaded not guilty to the two indictments, charging him with the distinct crimes of murder and arson.

The stock market was eery fair to-day, and quotations experienced another improvement. The foreign news has had a very favorable effect upen the money market. Long Island went up lj P? c*nti Norwich.and Worces ter 111 Farmers' Loan, J; Harlem }; Ohio Cs J; Morris Canal declined j per cent At the second board the market was rather heavy, and prices fell off a fraction from those ruling at the first board. Several very extensive failures have taken place among the produce dealers, involving a very large amount. These failures were caused, It is said, by bills of exchange, for a large sum, being returned from Lon don under protest, they having been drawn upon a house on the other side, which has stopped payment The Sussex Bank, at Newton, N. J., has made a semi annual dividend of 4 per cent. r The Tremont and Suffolk Manufacturing corporations made semi annual dividends of 10 per cent, payable on the 3tith inst. In relation to the sale and quotations of American tocka in London, Baring's Circular says "The re fultof the eperations of 1B46 has been, as in the prece ing year, a diminution of the amount of capital stock held in Europe. A re imbursement of about two mil lions of dollars has been regularly effected by the State of New York, and $076,OUO have been repaid by the Union Bank of Louisiana, in addition to a considerable amount of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and other stocks, which have been forwarded for remittance and sell in the Uni ted States. On the other hand, the investments have been v.ry small, ner can we anticipate any disposition to purchase either old or fresh securities, unUl the dif ferences between the United States and Oreat Britain are amicably settled,and thoee States which are still default ers have shown their willingness and ability to re-com mence and continue the regular payment of future divi dends, and to oonolude what will be regarded here as an equitable arrangement for the arreared interest. Upon the stocks of several States, the amount of dishonored over-due interest has unfortunately increased, and thus has added so much to the debt, whilst it weakens the credit of the United States. At present, the news from the United States paralyses all operations, aad where sales are pressed, very low pri ces must be submitted to." There appears to be considerable excitement in Wall street among the holders of Morris Canal stock, in rela tion to the reports which have for several days past been jn circulation in that vicinity. It it now stated that Mr. Tyler, the President, has resigned, and that the Secre tary, Mr. Bryant, will without doubt be eleoted to fill the vacancy. The resignation of Mr. Tyler was oaused by some difficulty that existed between him and Mr. Griswold, one of the largest stock holders in the compa ny, in relation to the general management of the oon cern. The recent large sales of the stock were made by Mr. Tyler's friends, for the purpose of getting out of the company, and the purchasers were Mr. Griswold and se veral other large holders, who have obtained possession of nearly all the stock, and may. therefore, be induced to carry out the completion of the canal as flrtt contem plated. The debt of the Morris Canal Company is nearly four hundred thousand dollars, end is all in bonds, and no part in mortgages; consequently .there can be no foreclosure, to deprive the stockholders of their interest, as anticipa ted. The company have about $100,000 to pay in July, but it is to contractors for finishtng the canal between Newark and Jersey City, now in progress, to be com pleted in April, when the canal will be opened, If the weather permits, and the boats will rdn from Easton to Jersey City. The funds are ready to meet the above payment due in July, which is, we learn, all the outlays at present required As to the proceedings in the Legislature of Pennsyl vania, they cannot affect the local business of the Morris Canal, but will sensibly affect the through business, or destroy it altogether. It remains to be seen whether the local business of the Canal will pay even the small - est dividend on the cost of that work. The whole concern is a football for the Wall street speculators, and we would advise all those not at pre sent interested in the stock, to keep clear of it, unless they have more money than they know what to do with. The difficulties between the Western and Worcester Railroad companies have been amicably and satisfacto rily settled. The agreement is on the basis, that the in come derived from tho tranrortation of passengers and merchandise, over the line firmed by the two roads, shall be done a- heretofore, in oars running through, each corporation either furnishing its proportion of cars or paying an equivalent The Income both from passen gers and merchandise, is divided between the two cor porations, by making in the first place, on each, a stipu lated allowance from the Boston and Worcester corpo ration, to the Western, for the greater cost of road and expenses of working, in proportion to the amount of transportation; and dividing the residue between the two corporations, in proportion to the distance of transporta tion on their respective roads. On the same ground, of greater expense of transportation on the Western road, the Worcester corporation agrees to defray the expenses of loading, unloading, collection and other local charges on this end of the line, as an offset to like expenses de frayed by the Western corporation on their part of the line, although the receipts of the latter from the joint freight, are two or three times the amount of those of the former. The effect of tho principle of division as applied, is to give of the first class passenger fare, as regulated for tho present to the Worcester rood, for a distance of Uj miles, $1; and to the Western road, on a distance of 166 miles, from Worcester to Albany, $4; and on way pas sengers. a rate not exceeding 3 oents a mile, in addition to 36cents allowed on the Worcester road. On the froight, which is graduated as is well known, a*, extremely low rates, and consequently gives a very low rate of profit, an allowance is made to the Western road, beyond a pro rata division, of 10 cents a ton, de ducted from tho share of tho Worcester road, on all freight conveyed to or from places beyond Springfield.? Tho Boston and Worcester corporation agrees to pay to tho Western $1000 per annum, on account of tho e? penses ol tho ferry boat bettreeu Albany aad Green - bnsh. Tho potition of tho Western Railroad Company to the Legislature, that it should prescribe the terms by which that corporation might use the Boston and Worcester road, has been withdrawn, and the suit pending in the Supreme Court of Massachusetts has boon discontinued.
