MONDAY, Dec. 2, 1844. Tlio Court met at
10 o'clock. The hall was densely crowded
with persons. The ease of the State vs. Chas.;
T. Torrey, charged with the abduction of three
. slaves, the property of Mr. llcckrotto, of this
city, was resumed.
George R Richardson, Esq., Slate's \ttoi
ncy, in the Opening of his address before the
I jury, said that in answering the able argument
i'or the defence, delivered by Mr. Johnson, on
Saturday, ho should confine himself strictly to
the testimony and the law; without going into
other theories, to inquire what opinions existed
elsewhere, or tho probable result of the issue of
the trial in reference to individuals; nor should;
lie inquire after the motives of the traverser, or
hy what peculiar feelings lie had been actuated.
Ho urged upon the jury, under their obligation,
i not to bo led astray from any considerations as j
| to what might probably lie the result of the j
'trial, as regarded the social or political rela
tions nf either individuals or the nation; their
' oath binding them to disregard all these, and j
requiring them to rely upon the testimony and ;
. the facts in the case, in connection with the;
Mr. R. then passed in review the testimony i
—first tracing the traverser, (Torroy, j from the
time of his employing Woodward's horses, on
Tuesday the 4th; his being seen passing up the
Harford road; repeatedly in the neighborhood
of Peach Bottom, on the sth and 6th; of !lis .
being seen at Deer Creek, where were also the
same horses and carriage as hired in this city,
and seen along the road by several witnesses;;
and of the fact, that ho was accompanied by 1
throe colored persons answering the description
of those lost hy Mr. Ucckroite; and of the
same carriage having been seen returning, in
the care of Torroy to the city, on Saturday <
and Sunday, the Sth and 9th, when they were
returned to their owner.
He next leforred to the testimony to show I
that the negroes thus seen accompanying Tor-i
rey, must have been lleckrotte's.
Mr. It. having given a close array of facts,!
adduced from the testimony, said that though j
incidents or facts in themselves, when diseon-l
neoted, might not be of much value, yet when j
put together, fbrmed the most powerful and j
irresistible evidence of truth. Facts and cir- j
cumstances, thus arrayed, were not dependent
upon their mere arithmetical position in estab
lishing a conclusion; but, in their combination, j
. multiplied in geometrical proportion, as one to
eight, or greater. A twig might easily be brok- ;
m en by a child, but place numbers of thorn in a
bundle, and they would defy the power of
man. So facts, multiplied, defy i
of mind to weaken or break them.
Mr. R., in reference to the ribbon said to j
have been put upon the bonnet of the girl a j
short time previous to her absence, and found !
at Deer Creek bridge, by Mr. Rigdon, ill de
fence of a position assumed by Mr. Johnson,
that the ribbon found could not have been the
same as placed upon Mr. ll.'s girl's bonnet,
because it was somewhat of a different color,
produced a portion of the ribbon as brought
into court the day previous by Mr. Hcckrotte's
daughter, from which he (Mr. R.) had re
moved a portion of its color, whereupon it had
assumed tho very same color as that found,
/ which had tile appearance of having faded—|
the original color being groen, and in its cliang- j
ed condition yellow. Blue and yellow com
bincd forming a green, and removing the green
the color remained yellow. These facts, said :
Mr. R., speak more potential than any human
1 oath. He referred to the Messrs. Rigdons arid
Amos, as being witnesses of unimpcached and
unimpeachable character.
Mr. R. in referring to Mr. Johnson's having;
set up tho plea that the offence had not been
committed within the taxable limits of the city, j
and consequently the indictment could not hold
good in this couit, conceived it an admission;
i of guilt.
Mr. Gallagher desired to correct the Attor- j
G ney. Mr. Johnson had not admitted the guilt;
of the traverser; he admitted that the traver J
ser might have been seen in Harford, but he |
denied his having Mr. lleckrotte's negroes.
Mr. Richardson, said he understood his posi- 1
tion. lie ridiculed the idea of the slaves run- j
ning off, and meeting Torroy on the road, and \
his taking tliern off, without a previous under-!
standing; and contended that if they went off;
from their master, or left tho city, with an un- j
derstandi ng that they were to meet Torrey, i
{ either by the advico of Torrey, or any agent!
acting for bim, lie was equally guilty.
Mr. R. cared not if Southmead's testimony
be set aside —the proof was plain and positive;
it had only been introduced to make assurance
doubly sure. He contended that the informa
tion given to Mr. Heckrotto hy Southnread, in
reference to his negroes, must have come from
Torrey, because nobody else knew any tiling
of it; and no person but Torrey himself know
ing the facts, they must have been given by
him to Southmead; and though counsel might |
paint the character of Southuioad as black as,
Erebus itself, yet the Devil might and could
tell the truth.
[ <4 Mr. R. briefly alluded to Torrey, as having
crept like a reptile into the bosom of Mr. Hock
rotte's family, where he found the servants en
joying almost parental care, contented and
happy, and having seduced thorn away, tosu
,ffcr perhaps abject poverty in their supposed;
free condition.
Mr. R. spoke of the effort of counsel for tho i
defence, in attempting to toucli the feelings of
the jury by speaking of the companion of the
traverser, as a lady who might proudly com
paro, for all the virtues that should adorn her
sex, with any of her sex in this community; and
the blow given her husband, if convicted, would
fall alike upon her. He did not doubt tho sin-;
eority of the appeal; and he also felt a share ol
that regret, for well lie knew it sometimes hap
pens that the virtuous and good were pierced
with sorrow by the unjust acts of the vicious.
But, in referring to tho jury, he said that how
ever counsel or themselves might regret such
sad results, there were (uglier considerations j
which they should look to in deliberating as to
the guilt or innocence of the traverser.
Mr. 11. referred to Mr. Johnson's speaking
of Torrey as being no ordinary criminal—ol
bis having received a fine education, and de
voted his life to the study of the precepts ol
Heaven. Mr. R. said lie knew of no injunc
tion derived from Heaven which disconnected
the christian and the citizen; a good christian
was tho best citizen; a good citizen respected
the law of God; all the civil relations of life,
were but part and parcel of Heaven's in
junction, which commanded of all men "re
peat your rulers," fcc. Mr. 11., in the con
cluding portion of his remarks, spoke of the
beauty of the moral law in harmonizing with ;
the civil law; of tho obligations of all men to
obey both; and of the absurdity of any man's
violating the laws of the land, because of the
belief that lie was doing the Lord service.
We have attempted merely to point to the
most prominent parts of Mr. It.'s address; arid
do not hesitate to say that it was one of iiis
most powerful dibits—characterized as his ef
forts generally are with ability and ingenuity. 1
As a display of forensic eloquence, the conclud
ing portion was peculiarly great; and for sub- j
lirnily of moral sentiment, never perhaps sur
Mr. R. spoke for about an hour and a half,
and was listened to with the most profound at
tention. Upon his concluding, the case was
given to tho jury.
Mr. Cox inquired of tho Piosccutiug Attor
ney, if the jury were to understand they must
believe the offence, if any, to have been com
milled within the limits of the city.
Mr. Richardson replied, most undoubtedly.
The jury then asked for a bailifl*, and retired.
After an absence of about two hours, they re
turned, and rendered a verdict of "guilty."
[lt will be remembered that Torrey was ar-,
raigncd under three indictments, eacli specify- !
i'ng a particular slave said to have been abduc- ;
let; and a general indictment covering all
three. The question will therefore be argued,
hereafter, before the Court, whether Torrey
will be held liable to a separate sentence in
eacli case or not. The law imposing a term
of six years in tire Penitentiary for a single of
Mr. Cox, upon the announcement of the
verdict, filed a motion with tho Court for an ar
rest, of judgment, with a view to a new trial.
The Court adjourned till to-morrow morning
10 o'clock.
[For tlie American Republican ]
To llie Honorable, the Senate anil House of lit
; presentutives in Congress assembled:
| The subscribers, citizens of the United States,
; respectfully represent: That they consider
themselves aggrieved, and their liberties inva
ded, by the unjust exactions, and the manner
of the administration, of the present Post Of
j fiee laws and department.
Your memorialists would respectfully ask
your attention to the following astounding fact,
i v iz:—That the Post Office, under cover of the
franking privilege, has been prostituted to sub
| serve the interests of political demagogues, as
i piling to office and power; thereby converting
a department of the general government, insti-
I tuted by our lathers to subserve the common
interests of the people of these United States,
■ into an engine of corruption.
Your memorialists would most respectfully
i and seriously represent to your honorable body,
j that, us descendants of pure Republican fath
ers, that were jealous of their liberties and
rights, they consider it their duly to remonstrate
with their Rulers, chosen to represent them in
the Legislature of their country, whenever they
believe that evils exist, that threaten the sub
version of their privileges and rights as free
men: and your memorialists fully believe that
sucli evils do now exist, as above set forth.
Your memorialists would further respcctful
, ly represent to your honorable body, that the
j evil of which they justly complain, viz:—Tax
ing tho people through a trial-administration of
[ the Post Office department, to the amount of
] the entire cost of the transportation in the
United States mail, of a mass of electioneering
papers, letters, and documents, greater in
amount of cost of transportation than all the
mailable matter of letter-postage within our
I Union, is, as an item of just auinradversion,
j fully equal to certain items of British aggres
sion, to redress which, our patriot sires perilled
I their lives and fortunes,
i Your memorialists would further respectful
; ly represent to your honorable body, that the
I present exactions of the Post Office department
I aforesaid, as respects the transportation of
I newspapers, is, in fact, waging a war against
the diffusion of knowledge in our country; and
that the evils in question, in all their bearings,
are without a precedent in the annals of the
Your memorialists would further respectful
ly represent to your honorable body, that, as
citizens of a glorious Republic, it is humiliat
ing in the cxtrome, to view our Representa
| tives, with the liberal per diem allowance of
Eight Dollars, contending for the additional
I perquisite of an abused franking privilege,
j while tho legislators of monarchical England,
without any per diem allowance from the pub
lic purse tor their services in Parliament, mag
nanimously pay the postage of their letters
from their own funds.
Wherefore, your memorialists most respect
fully request your honorable body, to correct
the evils in question, and thereby restore your
memorialists to their just rights; and by re
| ducing the present exoibitant rates of letter
I postage, remove a disgraceful reproach that
j now hangs like a foul incubus on our free in
j stitutions: and your memorialists, as in duty
i bound, will ever pray.
The above memorial will bo furnished our
follow citizens throughout the State of Mary
land, for their signatures; and it is desirable,
that that portion of tho newspaper press in the
United States, that is not ridden to death by
i political demagogues, shall give the above me
; morial a place in their columns, and aid in stir-
I ring up the people to a proper sense of tho un
just exactions of their would-be-masters.

ing agreement was entered into by the gover
nor, deputy governor and magistrates of New j
Hampshire, to discountenance that sinful prac
tice if wearing lung hair!
"Forasmuch as tho wearing of long hair, al- j
tcr the manner of ruffians and barbarous In
dians, has begun to invade Now England, con- j
trary to tho rule of God's word, which says it I
is a shame, for a man to wear long hair, as also i
the commendable costume generally of all (he I
godly of our nation until within this few years:
Wo, the magistrates, who have subscribed#!,!.-,
paper, (for the shewing of our innoceney in this !
behalf,) do declare and manifest our dislike and j
detestation against the wearing of such long
hair, as against a thing uncivil and unmanly, j
whereby men do deform themselves, and offend j
sober and modest men, anddo corrupt manners. I
Wc do, therefore, earnestly entreat all the eld- j
ers of this jurisdiction (as often as they shall |
see cause) to manifest their zcu! against it in '
their public administrations, and to take caie !
that the members of their respective churches
be not defiled therewith, that so, such as prove

SHOCKING MURDER. A horrible murder
was committed in Ilooksett, N. H., on Mon
day, the 25th ult. Esther Darrah, the person
killed, was the wife of John Darrah, and the
mother of Charles P.Darrah, who wcro Ixrtli ;
charged with being guilty of hor death. All j
three were miserably addicted to beastly drunk- J
ennoss, and often had fights over their bottle
of rum. It was in one of these brawls that |
Esther Darrah received the blows which caused i
her death.
AWFUL TRAGEDY. On Tuesday of last week, J
a Mrs. Stevens, the wife of a firmer in the vi- j

MBLANCHOI.Y SUICIDE. On Saturday morn- j
intflast, Or. A. Bircltartl, ut whose store the ,
recent tiro at Saratoga Sorinns was Ihst tfis-
I =5 |
covered, and who lost all his property at that
fire, committed suicide by taking oil of cedar.
The cause which led to the commission of the j
act, is thus given by Dr. B. in two letters to
his brother: One detailed his loss, and the ru- j
port of the origin of the fire in hi.r store, ex
pressed his wish to die, and his hope that his re
latives would not mourn for him. The other j
expressed the hardships under which lie had!
labored to acquire bis property destroyed, his !
hopelessness of repairing his loss, his unwill
ingness to live, his inability to pay a small debt

steamboat Worcester, f'apt. Vanderhilt, plying

cape from being wrecked on Thursday nigut.
Early in the morning, during a thick snow
storm, she went on shore at Sand ; Point Light,
about twenty-five miles from New York, the'
wind blowing strong, ur.d a heavy sea running.
She thumped pretty hud several time >, kee! d
over on her side, and it was thought at one
time she would go to pieces, but the well tliruc
ted efi.brl.s of Capl. Yandcrbilt and his crew fi
nally got her off. The water tanks bursled and i
aihnitted six inches of water, and the straining
of her limbers opened herseatn-, so that more
water w is admitted, but this influx sho was
soon got rid of by her pumps. The damage is
estimated at 5c.',500.

MADEIRA WISE. The exportation of -Ma
deira wine to the tinted States was formerly '
several thousand pipes annually. Last year it]
dwindled down to hundreds, and the belief is j
entertained by the manufacturers, that it will j
not ho necessary to emum ralo beyond two fi
gures, or tens, to express the amount total for :
the present ) ear.
TOBACCO. An English paper calculate:*, that
if the duty wore paid on the whole of the to
bacco at tho time of writing, in bond, in Lou
don alone, including manufactured and iiuma-j
nufacUired tobacco and sugars, the sum would ]
amount to little short of seven millions stei- 1

SEIZURE. The Collector of Toronto LIASJ
seized from several merchants in that city, for !
duties, about one hundred and fifty boxes of;

a house largely engaged in the Now York trade. I
the piano is advertised in the newspaper print

red beet, measuring twenty-three, and another!
twenty-seven inches. This is a large yield.
It is said that when ink marks on paper are
erased, by scratching out, that a little rub of
tho spot with the edge of fresh india rubber,
will render it fit to receive a new mark with
out the ink spreading, and is better than pounce
for that purpose.

The public are assured that, ('.lotwitlistandins the

spared to give comfort and speed to passengers. The
only change that has been made is in placing the
dtrumbonl PIONEER on this line in the stead of the
Steamboat Portsmouth, because of a popular Preju

The Line by NAPOLEON and PIONEER wa j
commenced in June, by the individual enterprise e.f

generous public will sustain it against the I'orlsmouih

assault by the pen alone, but it strikes at tny integrity

of propriety, than an attack upon the person. It ema

which would impart some weight to it, but that the
low and indecorous language iu which the malice of
abuse is couched by the writer, abundantly shields
me from its influence, and leaves the venom rankling
in the bosom of the matt from whom the missive sped
I have no desire to retort upon this self-constituted
