PIRACY BY EMIGRANTS. A Ve*y Strange Case on the St. Law. rence? An Ul>tied Company of Scandi navians Take f He Law Into Their Own Hands and Seize a Schooner? Their Ar rest at Point Levi. QREBEC, June 24, 1873. A remarkable case, which may end In a charge of piracy against a number of Swedish and Norwegian emigrants, was investigated here yesterday, and a number of the ringleaders lodged In Quebec jail. It appears that a large number of emigrants lrom Sweden and Norway were brought to Canada by Mr. Aiolson, who has extensive iron worxs on tho lower St. Lawrence, at a place called Moisle, and they were engaged belore they left home for a period of three years. When they arrived out in the Spring they went to work, bat a disputo arose as to the payment of wages, they insisting that they should be paid in gold and their employer giv ing them orders only to obtain goods in stores kept by himself. This they refused to remain satisfied with, and left their work, but, as they had no means ol getting away from the place, they were in a bad position, no vessels trading there regularly except those owned l>y Mr. Molson. In their extremity they went down the river In a body nad took possession of a small schooner. In this vessel they set sail for Quebec, aud arrived yesterday, all sal", there being men, women and children on board to the number ot iioo. When they landed at l'olnt Levi wharf the police were wailing lor them, as information of their acts had been telegraphed ro this port. The men mostly wore sheath knives in their belts aud looked very formidable, but on the police showing that they had authority to arrest them they surrendered peaceably. Twenty-eight ot them, who were said to be lesders In the movement, were taken Into custody atui lodged in Quebec Jail, to await the evidence of Mr. Molson against them and the charge of stealing the vessel, which the owner of the schooner means to bring against them. The case is creating great interest among all connected with emigration. HEAVY SMOKE IN OHIO. Four Ilnndred Thousand Pound* of To bacco liarned l'p>Loi? |NO,UOU. Cincinnati, Ohio, June 24, 1S73.

A Full Jury Selected Yesterday in the Court of Oyer and Terminer. Scenes in the Court and the Appearance of the Prisoner. The Case To Be Opened by the Prosecution To-Day. me Walworth case was begun in downright earnest yesterday in the Court ol Oyer anil Ter miner, and, to the amazement of almost everybody wh? was In any way directly or Indirectly Inter ested In It, the twelve jurymen were securod be fore the final adjournment of the Court late In the afternoon. How thla most extraordinary result was brought about It would be very hard to nay It may oe that the counsel for the defence were anxious to get the case hurried up as qulclcly as possible, convinced, as they are said to be, that public opinion Just now Is very favorablo to the prisoner, and that they therefore believed that delay In the matter was dangerous to their cause. The fact was shown, however, during the examina tion of the Jurors summoned in the two panels thai, with but two or throe exceptions, every man HAD UAI)E UP HIS MIND about the case ; had in fact formed, If not a fixed opinion, at least an option about tne guilt or innocence of the prisoner derived from reading the newspapers. In former celebrated cases the fact of a man's having read the papers at all and having derived an opinion from what he had read concern ing the cases was sulUcicnt to throw him out of Court as incompetent. It Is true that the counsel In this present case of Walworth might have easily been more exacting tjiau they were and" prolonged their warfare of selection for several days, If not weekB; out It Is surmised that the abolishment of the trier system (the placing of the power of old In vested In triers In the presiding Judge) had a good |CiTect yesterday, and made the prisoner's counsel Mess anxious than they otherwise might have beeu to endanger the number of their peremptory chal lenges. ' ? TnE COURT OPENED. ' The tourt was opened at naif-past ten o'clock promptly, the crowds that sought, lor entrance at the doorways consisting chiefly of the Jurors who. bad been summoned to appear. The prisoner was brought in by Sheriff flrennan and one of his depu- I ties, and was shortly afterward followed by his mother, who was attired in deep mourning. She was accompanied by the Rev. Mr. Barker, of Schenectady, brother-in-law of tho late Chancellor Walworth, nor little Bon, aged about seven years, also accompanied her. During tho afternoou the Itev. Father Walworth, brother of the victim of tho prisoner, arrived, and took a seat beside hlB sister in-law. The greeting between him aud the prisoner was quite cordial. IIOW TDK PRISONER LOOKED. The latter was neatly dressed In a suit of black broadcloth, the edges of a white vest being allowed juBt enough room near the lapelB to set it off fash ionably. His hair was carelessly brushed back from his forehead. As he took Ills seat ho looked around at the audience In as unconcerned a man. ncr as though ho hlmseir wero endeavoring to sec wherfe the prisoner was. Ibdecd. there was Just the least bit of bravado about hlB manner during the entire day. This was unmistakable? In fart, rather positive? whenever he was called upon to stand up and look upon whatever Juror was cbacn to lie oue ol the twelve. Whenever one was ac cepted and the Clerk bade him to rise he did so quickly, always being carelul to thrust his right hand partly under the lapel ol his coat and threw back Mb head In a way that said plainly as actions could say It to the audience. "You see, gentlemen, I'm not the least bit mghtened. It might be venturing too much to say that he seemed I to be desirous of acting the part or a hero, know lug that he was the central figure In the proceed ings and that all eyes were upon him; still his cool ness and general air and jaunty don't-care-a-snap way of acting naturally led one to believe that in stead of looking upon himself as a person whoso life was in danger, he was sure of being lauded lor what he had done, and that thus believing he felt that he had a right to wear an air of oue worthy of being admired. THE EXAMINATION OK TnE JURORS was quite a tedious affair, but occasionally tho mo notony of the exaiuiuation and cross-examination was relieved by the appearance upon the stand or some Individual who seldom reads a newspaper, or who, anxious to get on the jury, was not reluctant to split legal hairs aud argue with the lawyers and even with the Judge himself. The four counsel in the case? Messrs. O'Conor, Beach, (larvln and Davis? all sat near one another, the prisoner sit ting close beside and behind them, bo that he whs able at all i inies to speak to them If occasion re quired. Hut once, however, drfriug the entire pro ceedings, did either of the counsel find It necessary or expedient to consult with the prisoner or his Immediate friends, aud that was while the eleventh juror, Mr. Millbunk. was being examined. Mr. lieacti conducted all the examinations on the part or the counsel, Mr. O'Conor and the others simply sitting by, and. whenever there was doubt as to whether a juror In tne box was to bo acecpted or not, putting tlielr heads together in consultation. However, while Mr. Beach whs examiulng Mr. Mlllbank, Mr. O'Conor went back to where Mrs. \\ alwortt was seated au?l had a short conversation with her, aud straightway, after he had returned to his seat and spoken to his associates, Mr. Mill bank wnfl accepted, Mr. Phelps, the District At torney, not objecting. The prisoner paid the ut most attention to the questioning or the jurors and their replies, and several times grinned with mer riment when some stupid answer was given In reply to a plain question ; notably so In the ease or one Individual, named Levi Harris, Jr., who con tended that, on reading the account or the murder in the papers, he had formed an opinion which he had got rid ol since, and had now no opinion at all aoout the homicide, even though he could remem ber all the material facts he had read about In the papers. THE U8UAL DISPLAY OF IGNORANCE. There were some extraordinary specimens of the ignoramus examined, as well us of the knowing kind, who imagine that they are In duty bound to go into metaphysics in order to make a lawyer understand anything, one man named Marr created a great deal of suppressed laughter by his tllssertatiou on the difference between an impres sion and an opinion and by the ridiculous want or confidence he had iu hlmseli. The most brill ant sample of total Ignorance was James W. Tucker, who coolly said that he hadn't at any time before coming into court heard a word about the case that was to be tried; indeed, had never heard the name of Walworth. He finally said that he didn't generally read the papers, which conlesslon settled ins late, ami he was joyously claimed t?y both Bides us one meet to rank among tne twelve good men and true. Another bright particular citizen, wnen asked li ?he had conscientious scruples against hanging. replied that he had; bui It prool enough could be had to show that tlie prisoner was guilty ol murder he would have no scruples. It was a quarter past four when the last juryman was secured, to the great relief or every body in the court room. THE JURY. The fallowing are the jurymen selected:? Joseph II. Morton, jeweller, 2S John street. Jacob A. Chamberlain, provisions, 51!) West Thirty-third street. .fames W. Tucker, machinist, 22o West Twenty-, ninth street. John I'.

Mlllbank, brewer, 13 Kast Twenty fourth street. George W. Wright, grocer, 16 University place. TIIE JURYMEN DESCRIBED. Tho first juryman is a bright, intelligent-looking man, about thirty years of age. and wiL apparently luive a intnd of his own during the trial, aud not be led away by any outsHo issues or appeals to sentiment that may be made by either Bide In the case. The second is quite a voting man, and very intel ligent-looking. He has a Irunk, open countenance and a general manner that evidently had a win ning effect upoa both sides, a* he was accepted wituout being questioned at any great length. The third is the man who scarcely ever reads the papers, and who had never heard the case spokeu about anywhere. He has, strange to say, a hnrh, fun forehead, that betokens at lea?t plenty or room tor brain behind, but has a general look or stupid ity that is unmistakable. The fourth is a bald-headpd man with side whis kers, who is, to all appearance, ot abont the average intelligence of what are called "good" jurymen. The fifth is a tall, spare, nervous man, rather quick in his movements, with a pair of large blue eye1, that denote a kindly heart. He will evidently be not one of the most bloodthirsty or the jury, If appeals to the heart, regardless of the evidence, aro made a feature in the case. Tne sixth is a young man with a good-natured round face, offset In Its paleness by a good head of red hair. He looks Intelligent, quirk and active, aud will doubtless t>e a weight in the jury room. The seventh is a thick-set man, a little over the j??U0ic mv\ wuii ?u Qpca+jpmk wuatcnaucc, ttufct. Indicates honestv of pnrpnse, and a chin and' mouth firmly set, which betoken on much firmness an Iuh (-yen show or good nature, lie Is u man who I will, one would Judge, keep a keen eye and ear! op n i<?r the sworn evideuce alone, and by that* soielv make up his verdict. The eighth is a tali, thin young man, with a clean Hhaveu lace. He Is, judging from general appear ances, the brightest man on the Jury, and win exert a strung mituence upon his fellows, should the case require a lockup lor discussion after tho Judge's char lie. The ninth is a man somewhat over thirty, of the quiet and nne.xcltable kind, ami ostensibly an In telligent man. The tenth is a middle-aged man, with light hair, tending to a crispy curl ; stout an<! heiwty looklnir, with a world of good nature beaming out of his eyes. Still he has, when hrn countenance is in re pose, a look of extreme firmness. The eleventh is a short, well-built man; quiet and deliberate in his manner, as shown when he was on the stand. Evidently an intelligent man, of good common aenae and judgment- a man, In fact, who, as a Juryman, will not be apt to get off at a tangent, but ponder a long while herore mak ing a step one way or the other, lest he miirht, in acting hastily, take a false step. The twelfth la a bluff hearty-looking man, about, of the middle age, with a frank, open countenance, eh ar-headed, and of good Judgment, as he de noted by his answers to counsel wlien being examined. The trial will go on to-day at half-past ten o'clock. TIIK JUDUE'.S WARNlNtt. Jndge Davis, after the last Juror was selected, addressed a few remarks to tho jury. He said they could separate Tor that evening, but whether they would be allowed to do so at any other time dur ing tlie trial,, would be decided to-day. He also gave them the usual cautions, and hoped thrft the newspapers would make no comments on the case while it was In progress. LONG BRANCH. The Discomforts of a Rainy Day at the Seaside? The Prciiiltnt? The Influence of the Weather Upon Hla Sickness. Lono IlKtNCn, Juno 24, 1873. Long Branch, In tffe nddst of a drizzling cold rain, has none of the attributes of* a summet watering place. A MOKE DREARY PROfltTCCT than that seen from the hotels is Impossible to im* aginc. In Iront, the frothy sea upheaves in never ending monotony. A phantom ship Is discernible now and then vaguely through the thick drapery of fog that hangs nbovo it, and the line of the horizon is wholly lost in the vapor, leaving one in doubt wliefe the* ocean ends and the sky begins. Both ocean and sky are equally cheerless, and both seem to be utterly wretched when out in the rain. On the drive there is nothing visible but the long expanse of surface, dotted thickly by the pattering drops of rain in the wagpn ruts. Hero and there, perhaps, nfay be seen a drag, or fly or express wagon, but It is closely but toned up, and the driver lui3_hldden blmsell In somo snug corner of the vehicie, to keep from the raiu, and the whole concern has the appear ance of some bedraggled monster Buffering the agonies of a wetting. The Summer houses on the beach aud the music stauds all look as if they ought to be brought ludoors. The prospect is not much more chccrlul inside. OVKBCOAT3 AND BLANKETS nre In demand, and even coal tires arc warmly welcomed by the more sluggish-blooded, while hot drinks are temporarily revived, and apple Jack, and brandy are in very unseasonable request, tiroups have no way to amuse themselves except, by cards or billiards, and both cards and billiards seem very unconventional at the seaside and In the daytime. A few groups sit at the open door way shivering and telling stones? the oft-told talcs of the past half dozen Beasons? or recount old Jer seymen's narratives op snrrwitECK, including t he fate of the good ship Era which went down on thls^ery coast about seveu years ago and three hundrOT lives were lost. Tho thrllllug terror of these narratives enchains the attention, so far, especially wheu told? as they arc usually, by men who saw aud participated In them, that an un christian d sire to hee a shipwreck takes posses sion ol the hearer, and some less considerate audi tors express the wish that there might be just such a shipwreck there now. Hut wishes bring no ships to port, nor In the present instance to wreck, and the old Atiautie beats in Its dreary, wet-weather way upon the l.ong liraucb shore, guiltless, ^there at leuht, of wrecks or raiu. The rain has reudered EVERYTHING DREARY, the drive, the ocean, the landlords, the cottages, the guests? everything except the grass on tho lawns^which is already dauclng and laughing under the happy showering. The landlords look, without exception, blue. The slight cold snap has delayed the season for a week. People that wero coming are likely to unpack and wait till the city becomes more unuearable. Those that are hero curse the weather and think it would have been better to remain in town a week or so longer. Altogether the rain is a great discomfort to everybody. AS TO THE PRESIDENT, he, perhaps, enjoys it. He has not been out riding to-day, t>c!ng still a sufferer irom his attack of sickness. To the sick man rain is described in poetry as most refreshing, and probably General Grant feels its influence in that way. He is not so Ill, however, as to be unable to onjoy anything else. He will doubtless be in his usual health to-morrow. General Babcock arrived here to-day and called on him. The hotel proprietors bear this temporary eclipse with ucroic fortitude, andexpedt to "make hay" In the shape of a large lntlux of visitors as soon us, "sunshine" sets in again. TUB WEST END HOTEL, although a comparatively new structure, has been, entirely renovated. Without, it is the only building of the kind in Long Branch which may lay claim to any consistent style of architecture; wltlun, its large, cool halls, and corridors tastefully decorated, present a sight which is at once Imposing and re freshing. Mr. Prestbury, one of its proprietors, is a gentleman of the old school, ami does the hemneura with the grace and dignity of a feudal lord of some aucient castle. Among the distinguished residents of the West End Hotel aro Miss Neilsou, the trage dienne, who 18 reposing here from her late ardu ous labors preparatory to her departure for Eu rope. She is the observed ol all observers, and her graceful presence lends a peculiar charm to the spacious and elegant drawing room. There are also expected at the West Bnd Governor Wliyte, of Maryland ; Senator Stocktou, of New Jersey, and many other notables. BRUTAL AND PERHAPS FATAL ASSAULT. The Perpetrators Escape? Calling th*> Cot oner. Coroner Kessler yesterday mqrnlng received In formation lrom the Kightcenth precinct police that Frank Ilaverstraw, of 310 East Twenty-fourth street, assaulted the evening previous, corner of Sixteenth street and First avenue, was lying In a very precarious condition from the effects of the Injuries received. The report stated that Haver straw was paralyzed on one side and unconscious. He M under the care of Dr. Eisler, of E&stNintb street. The Coroner, on calling at the house, found the Injured man still insensible, and consequently unable to make a statement. Upon making in quiries the Coroner learned that early on Monday evening Ilaverstraw, who is a barl?er. went with Frank Schmidt, a friend, to O'Reilly's liquor store, corner of Sixteenth street and First avenue, und there meeting one of his patrons slapped him familiarly on the shoul der, to which some one objected. Several labttfers in the place at tho tune then pitched upon Ilaverstraw, threw him Into the str r. alter which he was kuocked down and mos' brutally kicked ami stamped about i lie head, side aud ab domen, perhaps rupturing some of the blooa ves sels, and otherwise Injuring him Internally. Mr. Haverstraw was removed to his house, and tho police, It is alleged, made no determined eflort to secure the assailants till after they learned that liu was likely to die, when the sergeant In command, despatched three oillcers In search or the brutes, who made the attempt on Ilaverstraw's life. It is stated that a man named Larkln was particularly active in his brutality to Haverstraw, and it Is more than probable he Inflicted the violence which may result fu'ally. Haverstraw, who is a quiet and respectable man, has a wife and three children. Larkiu was arrested yesterday aiternoon. THE VAH WINKLE BOOERT MURDER TUT AT. The trial of Van Winkle Bogert for the murder of Ransom F. Burroughs was continued In the Pater son Court yesterday. The cross-examination of Cornelius Bogert, brother of the defendant, seemed in no way to shake the Important testimony ho had given In behalf ol his brother. Delia and George Garrabrant, brother and sister of Llbblo Garrabrant, were examined lor the defence; but their evidence was not characterized bv any new iacts of Interest. The trial will be concluded now m two or three days, aud all doubts of a verdict of , acquittal seem to daily grow less and less. THE SINGULAR CASE IN MULBERRY STREET. Congestion of the Brain and Hydro* phobia. Yesterday morning Deputy Coroner Leo msde a post-mortem examination at (5 Mulberry steert on the body of Tcreza Cherra, the little Italian girl, six years of age, who died under such mysterious circumstances, as previously reported In the Herald. on opening the body Dr. Leo found con gestion of the brain, and the convulsions, in his opinion, resulted irotn hydrophobia. It appeared that about two months ago deceased was bitten bv a rabid dog. the brute having been shot soon afterwards by an ofllcer of the sixth precinct. f?e ceased had not been violated, and there seemed to benothlug wrong with deceased other than noted by Dr. Leo. A certificate of death was given bj Corouer K.cMlvr.
