(CT3 We moan to publish Silas Wright's Speech

journals seem shy of it.
OS3 The Delegates from the Southern Counties
lo the Whig State Convention were mainly in
Albany yesterday morning on their way to Syra?
cuse. Among them there appeared a very gene?
ral unanimity of feeling in favor of Lctiier
Bradish for Governor, and an anxious hope that
John A. Collier may yet be persuaded to accept
the nomination for Lieutenant Governor. Mr.
Collier will be warmly supported for the first
place, and will doubtless receive a very respecta?
ble vote, but we think Mr. Bradish will be nomi?
nated. If, in the case, Mr. Collier should p?
Temtorily decline the Lieutenancy, we hardly
know who will be selected. Hon. Geo. W. Pat?
terson has been named, bnt we believe the con
tirgoncy of requiring some other candidate than
>Ir. Collier has hardly yet attracted general at?
tention.
At the Regency Convention Wm. C. Boucx
?will be nominated for Governor without competi?
tion, but the abrupt und eleventh-hour declension
of the Lieutenancy by D. S. Dickinson has given
rise to an active canvass for that post. It is neces?
sary that the man should come from the South
West, us Loco-Focoism will never give that region
any thing but offices ; and Mr. Nathaniel Far
jtisoTON of Tioga (now State Treasurer,) is under- i
stood to be the Regency favorite, but Levi S. j
Chatfielt) (Speaker of the Honse,) is making a
tstrong push for it. We hope he may get it. j
The Apportionment.
Albanv, Monday, Sept. 5.
Nothing was u< j...A in the Legislature
this day, but in tho Committee of ConrVi
rence a great stride was made toward an adjust?
ment of the differences between the two Houses.
The following were the buses of that settlement
1. The Senate are to agree to the Assembly's out
yageous Gerrymandering of the Northern Counties,
so as to satisfy Clinton, and yet give Messrs. Cramer
and Roger* a Loco Foco District.? if they can car?
ry it.
2. The House in turn assents to a now arrange?
ment of the Western Districts, which prevents
the division of Counties as follows:?
Cbenango, Broorne and Tioga;
Tompkins, Cbemnng and Yates;
Steuben and Allegany;
Cattaraugus and Cbautauque;
Erie;
Genesee and Wyoming;
Niagara and Orleans.
The four last Districts are precisely as hereto?
fore, and are unexceptionable. Those in the
North are atrocious, and made so simply because
John Cramer dared defied the majority to attach
Saratoga to Washington, which overy one knew
was the proper arrangement.
We presume the bill, amended aa above, passed
both Houses, and was sent to the Governor yes?
terday.
The only outstanding difficulty regards the City
Districts. The Eighth Ward having no Loco
Foco Members in the Houses, the Delegation at
tached it to the Lower Wards to form th* Third
District. But Senator Varian, who represents the
general interest of the party, is opposed to it, and
at his instance the Senate resists stubbornly. It
5s supposed that tho difference will be split by
making this District consist of the first five Wards,
and leaving out both the Sixth and Eighth.
The Albany Rally.
There was an immense gathering of the Five
men of Albany at the Capitol to receive and listen
to the Whig Members of Congress on Monday
evetring. Archibald McIntyre presided. An
organization was first effected in the Capitol, hut
not half tho people already in attendance could
crowd into it, and the meeting adjourned to the
Park, where they numbered not less than 2,500.
The Members of Congress were introduced, and
then addressed with stirring eloquence and power
by Willis Hall, who tendered them the enthu?
siastic thanks of tho Whigs of Albany for their
able, faithful and successful dischurge of the du?
ties devolved on them by the People. Respon?
sive addresses were successively made by Hon.
Millaru Fillmoke, Hon. R. L. Caruthers of i
Tennessee and Hon. Richard W. Thompson of
? Indiana, with a spirit, earnestness, and effect rare?
ly exceeded. It was noarly eleven o'clock when
AfryThompson closed and the meeting adjourned,
gyerj Whig animated by a spirit of enthusiastic
?I? termination to do his utmost for the good cause
in the approaching contest.
Tbe Kvenintj Post has a letter trom Albany stating that a
Procession on the arrival of the members bad been an?
nounced, but was not effected. Tire writer conceals the
fact that the notice had Ueen given bnt a few bour?, and that
the boat arrived one hour earlier than usual, jiut as severe!
Jbamlred Whigs were on their way to the wharf. We trnsi
the Loco-Foco was satisfied widi tbe meeting m the even.
3ng, where, to say nothing of 2,0?0 Whigs, there were more
Van Muren men than have attended any meeting of their
own party in Albany lor many months.
0*The Rochester Daily Advertiser is fum?
bling for a discrepancy between our earnest ad?
vocacy of a Protective Tariff' and our subsequent
remark that it will not do every tking which the
Country requires ! The Tribune was so -zealous
xbru Tariff, argues the Adv. and yet it now con
cedes that it will not create a National currency
nor produce the Millenium I The Advertiser
may bo a very astute journal, but it makes itself
needlessly ridiculous in this matter. We believe
the Tariff" tho very first in importance of the m?a- j
sures needed to restore the National prosperity;
but if this were all-sufficient, why should we ad?
vocate others ? Did we contend for a Tariff* only
through tbe late crisis, or for a National Currency,
tho Land Distribution and the resumption of In?
ternal Improvement also? Answer us, Wisdom
UT Will some of the Loco-Foco journals who
are so overwhelmed with gratitude and admira?
tion in view of the course of Silas Wright on the
Tariff bill be good enough to tell us whether it is
his Vote for or Speech against the bill which so
enraptures them ? We have tried the Argu* on
this head, but can get no satisfaction. \\ iH The
Union, Rochester Adveitiser, or some of their
kindred, enlighten us ?
se?asm
The Condition of England.
The only remarkable feature of the late news
from Europe, is the decided and threatening as?
pect which the deep, corroding discontent of a
large portion of the Laboring Classes has at
length assumed. Outrage and riot in widely
separated parts of the country, thousands quit?
ting work and roaming in gangs to ?ompel by in?
timidation and violence others to do likewise;
eight thousand troops stationed in Manchester
alone, yet the danger of outbreak becoming every
moment more imminent; and finally the splendid
country mansion of the Prime Minister pillaged
and burnt by a mob?these are fearful indications
of the spirit which animates and the folly which
directs the immensely numerous and physically
formidable discontented classes. It would seem
that tbe crisis in the fate of the British empire,
so long predicted and so long averted, had come
at la??t, and that a few months must witness a
conflict more horrible than the worst scenes of
the French Revolution.
It is not the least ominous feature of this crisis
that it present* itself at a time when no special
reasons for its occurrence can be seen to exist?
indeed, when the tendency of events is decidedly
toward tranquillity and hope. The ripening har?
vest?to which tiie eyes of all Britain instinctively
turn as the barometer of her prosperity for the
coming year?is most bountiful. Grain has rarely
been cheaper in England than now, and the total
product of 1842 will probably be greater than that
<?f any former year. The Corn-Laws, that stand
iug topic of agitators, have very little influence at
present on the condition of the Poor, for, cheap as
Grain is on this side of the Atlantic, it would not
pay transportation to England if admitted duty
free. Neither is the pressure of taxation so
severely felt by the Laboring Classes of Britain at
present as in former years ; for, by the new In?
come Tax, and the Tariff* Revision, a considera?
ble burthen has been subtracted from the Duties
and imposed solely on the Property of the Coun?
try. The reduction of imposts, mainly on articles
which do not come in competition with the pro?
ducts of Home Industry, and never to the disad?
vantage ofthat Industry, ha-? been very considera?
ble. Business in the Manufacturing Districts had
sensibly improved within the month preceding our
last advices. But do the Laborers realize this
improvement? Are they becoming more com?
fortable, contented nnd happy ? Let the tidings
by the Caledonia give the answer.
We are every day more deeply convinced that
the evils under which the British people now labor
are too formidable and deep-seated to be cured by
uriy merely Political changes?certainly by any
I such changes as are contemplated by the agitators.
No reflecting mun can weil forget how former
1 Reforms have been expected m remedy these
evils, and how entirely the expectation has proved
delusive; Catholic Emancipation was to quiet and
reconcile Ireland; Parliamentary Reform to ushet
in a new era of prosperity and harmony for the
whole Empire. But has such been the result, or
any thing like it? And does any sane man hearti?
ly believe that the abolition of the Corn-Laws, or
of al! imposts whatever, would allay discontent
and produce a decidedly, permanently better state
of things? We cannot, at least, until the Past is
ibrgotten.
But suppose we go farther, and adopt the Chart?
ist platform, would that effect the end desired ??
Not in its avowed and recognized provisions. If
the revolution be carried to the extent of abolishing
the Monarchy, despoiling the Aristocracy, and re?
pudiating the National Debt, it might do some
'hing for the Laboring Mass,?that is, for such
portion of them as were not slaughtered or starved
during the process, or in tho anarchy and interrup
'ion of business consequent thereon. Yet there
are two sides, even to this prospect. By abolish?
ing the National Debt, probably quite as many
paupers would be mtide as unmade, and they would
!re the more helpless and miserable of the two
cdass ; for tens of thousands of widows, orphans,
and superannuated persons have invested their little
til in the Funds, and by repudiation would be beg?
gared beyond remedy. So of any other Revolu?
tionary movement.
The true remedy for the evils now oppressing
the masses in Great Btitain, it appears to us,
must be of very different character. In its re?
sults it would necessarily alfect and modify the
Political institutions of the Country, but it should
have its root in the Industrial or Social system.
It should commence by organizing and rendering
efficient the now immense mass of unemployed
and useless Productive power of that country,
and thus removing the enoiraous burthen, the
eating canker, of Pauperism from the Land. It
should be a work not of strife, collision and
bloodshed, but of universal peace and good will
?of benefit and blessing to all. Of the means
and practicability of such a Reform we shall speak
more particularly hereafter.
To Working Men.
After^he first Tariff bill had been vetoed, and
when it was supposed that the Whigs could not
pass one that Tyler would not veto, the Philadel?
phia Spirit of the Times (Loco) published, and
The Union and other Loco-Foco journals copied,
the following:
Better Times!?A huge body of men?weavers oat of
work?passed our otticu y?siertlt?y, at noon, witu banners
Hying, music playing, awd a miniature loom elevated on the
end of a p?le. It is really heart-rending to see such a crowd
walking about in absolute want, many of them no doubt, of
the necessaries of life?able and widing to wora.but without
a prospect of it. It is a pity, and we see hut one remedy
for it?die ballot box! Let Uiem ro themselves, where
they have put thai little loom?to the v<Al?and vote tor
such men as will advocate measures calculated to restore
confidence and business to the community.
The drift of this advice, as will be seen, was
this?' Vote the Loco Foco ticket, for that alone
will secure a. Protective Tariff.' But the dear,
disinterested advisers overshot their mark fur once.
Thk Whigs have carried a Protective Ta?
rife, nad already its good effects are beginning to
be felt, and they will increase. But the Loco-Fo
cos are pledged to repeal it whenever they have
pnwer, nnd even tho low of them who voted for it
expressly did soon account of its Revenue features,
disclaiming the Protective, and promising to aid
in repealing them on the first opportunity. Now,
Mechanics and Laborers, if you find times im?
prove on account of the passage of the Tariff", just
look at the above Loco-Foco advice, aud judge
from it how y ou ought to vote ! Enough said.
Silent Toasts.
While the public generally and justly condemn
the cold reception of the toast of? The President,'
at the Ashburton Dinner, tbe loud denunciations
of it by the Loco-Foc-os, who were silent when it
took placs, come with a very bad grace from the
party of whicli the American recalls the following
reminiscence:
When, nor. many years after the war, Andrew
j Jackson visited this city, a dinner was given to
j him at Tammany Hull. When called upon for
8 toast, the veteran gave?
The Governor of the great and patriotic State of New
York.
De Witt Clinton was then Governor, and the
i Democracy, substituting the person for the office,
refused to drtnk the toast, and complaiued of
Gen. Jackson for having, while their guest, offered
them an insult.'
Who Ride t Whig? or Loco Fmco* ?
The following ia a bill of carriage hire against the
Corporation of the City of New York, and may
be seen by any person who will take the trouble
to call at the Comptroller's office at the Hall of
Records and enquire for Mr. Ljach's bill of car?
riage hire against the Corporation, commencing
the 18th of April, and ending the 18th of May
last. It is now presented to the public for the in?
formation and benefit of those who vill shortly be
called upon to pay it.
They will here find a sample of what was going
on last Spring, when the people thought beit to
take the administration of the City Government
from the Loco Focos, and place it in other hands.
This bill amounts to $'315, for one month, be?
ing at the rate of $3780 a year. The riding of
all the Whig members (including both boards)
amounts only to $1*'.50, being for the entire
year at the rate only of $162. His Honor the
Mayor had twenty-eight rides in this month,
amounting to $40.12^, and being at the rate of
about $500, fur the year, over and above h?
salary of $3000, and the perquisites of office. It
will be.seen that all the Loco Foco Aldermt.-n
were riding Aldermen ; and that ?ut of the seven
Whig members, the names of two of them only
appear in the bill, and the names of the other
five, to wit., Alderman Woodhull of the 2d, Ben?
son ef the 3d, Williams of the 4th. Jones of the
5th, and Kimbali of the 15th wards are not foand
there.
It will also be seen that there were several
amateurs in this business, about the Hall, besides
the Aldermen. Mr. Paterson, clerk of the Board
of Assistants; Clark, dook-keeper to that Board;
the Comptroller; Porter to the Comptroller;
Messengers, &c. (all Loco Focos) in addition to
their salaries, had their share of coach riding, at
the public expense.
Who ride, therefore, Whigs or Loco Focos ?
Let those who pay the taxes examine the follow?
ing bill, and tbey will see for themselves. It is
an old and true saying, seeing is believing.

The Treaty Correspondence.
[Concluded from yesterday's paper. ]
X. Lord Ashburton in answer to Mr. Webster's
letter, says that its statement of tbe settlement of
boundaries appears substantially correct, and that
the Treaty may now be drawn up. He wishes to
consider the articles singly, and recommends mak?
ing the delineations of the lin? on the excellent
charts in their possession, to spare to both parties
the unnecessary expense of new Commissioners,
and a new survey.
XL The next letter is also from Lord Ashbur?
ton, and its object is to record by correspondence
a caution that the stipulation in the fifth arti?
cle of the Treaty, signed that day. August 9th.
respecting certain payments to be made by the Go?
vernment of the United States to the States of
Maine and Massachusetts, does not subject Great
Britain to any responsibility for those engage?
ments.
XXL Mr. Webster assents to this precautionary
statement of Lord Ashburton.
The preceding is all the correspondence on the
subject of the Boundary-, except that between the
Secretary of State, aad the Governors and Com?
missioners of Maine and Mossachusetts, and the
delegation in Congress from New Hampshire.
The Boundary correspondence is followed
by letters interchanged between Hon. J.K. Pacl
ding, Secretary of the Navy, and Lieut. Paine,
commanding U. S. schooner Grampus, on the Afri?
can coast, in relation to Lieut. Paino's arrange?
ment with the commander of H. B. M. sloop
Wolverine, delegating to the latter the right to de?
tain and hand over to the Grampus, vessels under
American colors engaged in the slave trade; an
agreement which is disapproved by tbe Secietary.
TVew-York "Legislature.
31o!*dat, September 5.
In Senate, petitions were presented for aad
against the repeal of the exemption law; and to
give the Committee of Conference on the Appor?
tionment Bill time to report, the Senate took a
recess.
When they again assembled, Mr. Foster,
(Chuirman of the Committee of Conference on the
part of the Senate,) carae in and said, that the
Committee of Conference had agreed upon all the
points of difference between them, except one, re?
lating to the city of New-York ; but that their re?
port could not be prepared before tho next morning.
The Senate then went int? Executive session.
In Assembly, the House proceeded, on motion
of Mr. O'Sullivan, to consider his resolution for
the appointment of a Committee to examine into
the Penitentiary System of Labor and Discipline
of this State, as compared with that of other States
and of foreign countries. The resolution was re?
jected : Ayes 26 ; Nays 62.
Mr. Weir's resolution, directing the Comp?
troller to recall the loan of $ 1 0,00(1 heretofore
made to the American Seamen's Friends' Society,
was warmly advocated by Mr. Weir and Mr.
Davezac, who denounced the Retreat as an ' Al
gerine ' concern, but was lost by a very large vote.
Mr. Swartwout's resolution, providing for
action on a bill to amend the Exemption Law so
as to provide that it shall not apply to debts con?
tracted prior to the 1st of May, 1841, was called
up, but finally laid on the table.
The Resolutions of Protest, reported by the
Select Committee of sixteen, were next considered
in Committee of the Whole, nnd reported to the
House, which agreed to the Report.
A Committee to examine the accounts of the
Comptroller and Treasurer was chosen, consisting
of Messrs. Davis of Rensselaer and Brownson
of Wyoming.
The Resolutions of Protest were then adopted :
Ayes 72; Noes 22?a strict party vote.
Mr. Hathaway announced informally that the
Committee of Conference had come to the deci?
sion NOT TO AGREE, and that Mr. Hur.nuRD.
the Chairman of that Committee on the part of
the House, was preparing a report informing the
House officially of the facts: and the House took
a recess till half-past 4 o'clock.
On re-assembling, Mr. Huriiard, from the Joint
Committee of Conference, reported that the Sen?
ate Committee proposed to accept the arrangement
made by the House of the Northern Districts with
an amendment making provision for a division of
Hamilton. They accept also the proposition to
annex Tioga to Broome and Chenango. In regard
to the arrangement of the Western Counties, they
proposed to accept the Senate'? arrangement orthat
proposed by Mr. Swartwout in the House, at the
option of the Committee of the Assembly. The
latter concluded to accept of Mr. S.'s arrange?
ment. As to the city and county of New-York,
the Committee were unable to agree, and the mat?
ter of difference still stood open.
Mr. Hathaway, for himself and Mr. Maclay,
disagreed with Mr. Swartwout's arrangement;
the principal point of difference being the division
of Erie County: the Senat? Committee being
against dividing any Western County, and feeling
what Mr. Hathaway thoughtunnecessary squeam
ishness, as the arrangement was necessary to se?
cure to the majority in the House and in the State,
a fair [!] proportion of the political power of
tire State. He said that his friends at the West
needed a chance for thxir lives, and, as it was,
the House only threw a few straws in their way,
at which they might catch, like drowning men.

co-Focoism in the West.]
Mr. Simmons replied to Mr. Hathaway, and

Trial of Lira*. Charles? Wilkra, C. 9. V.
iVjf*J/, COURT MJRTJAL,
On board the U. S. Ship Nor*h O-irolma, lying 'in
the New York BUrbor.
Reported for The New-York Tribune.
There was a very large attendance of speetatarj and
i'.on hunters this morning, including ?*ver\ grade of tb-j na?
val service, from tlx* junior officers up to the portly Post
Captain. There was also a vast cumber of young und
pretty women present, to aod intfest to the scene.
The u>uai preiiminaries having been doty ?b??*\.,j
Lieut Wilkes rose u> read ?b d fence; which comprbet a*

The defence sets oat by inforaring tie Court, that d rrrag
I *rhat was irutpyrnprxnte ly called the trials of L ^atv. Pick

accused had been treated by the prosecution M the real

the defence says *? has teemed with unqualified deiecrt.
tionof the accused personally, and of bis act:*; * fcr the
purpose of overawing the Court, ami forcing a verdict la
opposition to the consciences of the Judges."
These ellirts against the accased date so far bacs that
on bis laading after a five years* voyage be found tint be
was on the eve of sustaining an injury almost equal ?the
most severe sentence which the Court could have inflicted
hail all the charges been proved. The accused next ad?
verted to'the high character and standing of the menbrrs
of the Court as sufficient to protect him against this arrja.
dice and tiien went intoa history of his first conn jcooe
with the Expedition ander the command of Com. Thos.
Ap Catesby Jones; hi* voyage to Europe; return, and
having the unsolicited command of the Expedition he?jr>wet(
on him by Mr. Ex-Secretary PoinseCt. He next advert* to
the officers of the Squadron, insinuates diat a cabal txistr-d
to thwart all ibe objects of the expedition which w*re in
:on*istent with tbe ease ol the gentlemen compofing it,
and a<lds that they were a!l volunteers for tbe same, and
were to receive an extra compensation lor extra services,
provided they performed ihem. He next avows Jus dew
tion to the Navy, partvul-viy to the e'.d >--\- .'. :n. 1 ad.N
that he shall ever he found oppose.! to the now ide % that
authority is to be derived from the steerage and wardroom
and that officers are to be shown the instructions cf their
commander, and be civilly asked if they will perform the it
duty.
These are-lhe principal points of the Exordium, asd the
accased then proceeds to demolish tbe charges ?e-iaiiia.
To the first charge of oppression coDr.'Gnillon, be says,
thai if he kept the communication oftbat officer to :he Se?
cretary of the Navy, ;.t could have done Dr. Giliou m>
harm, because no Caurt coul.l have been ordered to try
the accused abroad, and it be was to be tried in ihr United
Slates, it could uol have been done satisfactorily lo the
Doctor until theretu.uof ihe Squadron. He conplains,
also, that this document was not louud and produced be>
lore the Court, and then insinuated that it hat! beea
intentionally detained, lest by its contents it bad been
proved to have beeu disrespectful.
The saaie reply is given to the 2d specification in rela?
tion t'i the charge's against Lieut Ringgold. To the S>\, be
plea-Is the Doctor's misconduct as an excuse for bis lack of
promotion. To the fourth, he puts in a denial of thi facts
and enters Into a very minute and hypercritical ?iSBefUtioa
on tbe Doctor's testimony, to show that the Imperial ni?:.
daie ot " quit tbe presence, Sr. quit the presence, '??cid I
never have been asserted by himself. wiih respect to tiie '
order from the house top, at the pitch of the necused'i
voice, for the doctor to " go on board. Sir, and don t leave
the ship, "be admits tbe words but denies that they wert
spokenm a public place, which is the main allegation in the
charge. To the other part of this specification in relati-m
to not ordering the Doctor home, or permitting hin tobe
tried at Honolulu, b? denies that he refused hint any trial,
and contends that tbe Doctor would have had more to com
plain of, if he had been forced to take bis trial before a
court there, the member* of which were personal friend*
!?(' himself. In the fifth specification, in relation to ihe stop,
page ol the Doctor's pay, be contends that the Doctor li.nl
not earned the compensation by the performance of such
extra duty and the keeping of a journal.
To tbe charges of cruelty to the inhabitants of dermo?
Tenners, Dnimmond Isle, iic. lie , be pleads the orders and
instructions af the Secretary of the Navy, and contends thai
he was armed with plenary iniweis, and unless a clear a?i
wanton abuse of these powers is established, the charge
must lall. He then cites the doings of the iuhahit-idi
against the officers of the Expedition, and finds in their
ease a verdict of?served them quite right.
To the lourth charge of illegally punishing the rnenoadn
his command, the accused says?"This is the only charge
that caused him the least anxiety. That, however. Iiaj
been wholly removed,and be now feels assured lb n it lira
tieen made lo appear that punishments were not only unlns
? luent in ihe squadron but that they were absolutely necej
sarv for the good order and discipline ol the service."
To tbe sixth charge of scandalous conduct in ihe matter
of the discovery of the 18th January.be cites pommm;:
the testimony to show that the land was seen, and says with
relerence to the non-appearance of some ot those sights i
ihe log-book, that the commander of a vessel exercises no
lontnil over the log-book, for which diu officer of tbe deck
;s responsible. To tbe matter of the discrepancy in the re?
ports to ihe Secretary of the Navy, he interposes an excuse
;or n clerical error, and says "that if either Lieut. Hudson
or himself had designed to perpetrate a fraud, they would
have b?en too clever not to have put the important word in
both copies of the report" To th- last charge of the first
sei, that rani- offence of hoisting the broad pennantand wear?
ing the captain's uniform, he citus the regulations of the
\avy, which say that no officer shall bear a broad peodvnl
unless he shall have been appointed to command asquadron,
and as bis was the command of a squadron that regulation
is his authority. To the oth?-r part the uccused says he con?
siders the charge to? frivolous to meet by argument when
every skipper of a North river sloop bears tbe title of cap
tain, and a midshipman i( in command of a tender, would
lie called by it.'
Tbe charges brought by Lieutenant Pinckney wire
next disposedof hi short order. The angry reprrofbdr
fi led, and the God dainu it considered as not proven, be?
cause only some of the witnesses lesiily ibal ihey heard
ihe expression, "God damn it, sir, you've disobeyed my
orders." w hilst others did not, and the accused contend*
thai without this phrase the reproach could not be made
scandal of.
To the next specification in regard to the beaving-to of
he Klvmg Fish, he-says that Lieutenant Pmkney manasfl
j nis vessel so unskilfully on that occasion that lie was lu:i?
Mhamad of it, and lite matter would never hare beea
brought to light had it not been necessary as a crow ehari'e,
and as a proof of this, he charge- Lieutenant Pinki?y with
nearly losing bis vessel by beaving-to under the la w of Ihe
Vincennes seven days alter this reproof was given.
To the 15th Specification, that of refusing to pa / fnr tbe
repairs of the Flying Fish, lie pleads the necessity of coo.
serving the public interest, and says that then-fair? werf in i
no ways urgent, and that it wa< the doty of Lieut. Pmkney I
to have.waited bis arrival-at the Hay of Islands. Tot".'
charge of neglect of duty 111 retaining tbe cominuukfldouoi
Lieut. P. to the Secretary of the Navy, tbeaecsstdCOS* '
tends as in the case of Gudlou that it was of no coovfquence i
when the complaint came, as be could not he tried tnlil hii
arrival in the United Slates. To the charge of opprewiun
in confining Lieut. Pmkney to tbe Peacock from May m
October, 1S40, the accused says that Lieut. PhiJoieyMl I
been tried for ihe matters for which he was suspen led,and
the counsel can judge whe ther the arrest amounted tocp
pressioD or not
To the last charge, that Of cruelty to Ihe murin-r?, Bad?
jnd three others, who refused to re-enter the service, ai/f
the period they bad enlisted for hud expired, he pleadu
jus?fication and says that this charge has less foundailM
than any others in the whole catalogue.
Laving thus disposed of the charges, the accused ittackfd
tin* motives ut the Judge Advocate in a most ?av ige aci
unprecedented manner, and charged that gentlemen w in
not hesitating to impeach the testimony ol every wifnisi 1
who did not testily exactly to what lh?'l learned gentleman
wanted lor a conviction. The prosecuLrig witnesse s, Lieut.
Pinckney and Dr. tluillou. suffered some, also."Df the for?
mer the accused said, ?' he has told the Court tbatheb .w
