The examination of Mr. Wnt. R. Myers, as
rincipal, and Samuel S. Myers and Wm. S.
urr, as aiders and abettors in the murder of
'udley Marvia Hoyt, was commenced before
te Mayor's Court, at Richmond, Va., on Mon
ay, when a great deal of testimony was
rought out, together with a most extraordi
ary correspondence between Mr. Hoyt and
Irs. Myers, which had been intercepted by the
ithcr of the lady and somo of her friends.—
Vhen it is recollected that Mr. Hoyt, on his
ying bed, protested llio innocence of Mrs.
dyers, the correspondence appears still more
At the examination on Monday, as we learn
rom the Richmond Republican, Major Pollar,
he father of Mrs. M., gave the following tes
imony to rebut the dying declaration of Mr.
While Mr. Myers and wife were on a visit to
lis house, in Albemarle, Mrs. Pollard informed
tim that their daughter (Mrs. M.) had des
latched a letter to Mr. Hoyt, and tiiat it ought
obe intercepted. Accordingly, lie determined
:o keep an eye on the Icttt rs lor his daughter,
joniing through the post otfice. At the time
te supposed an answer to his daughter's letter
vould arrive, it did not come, but shortly af
.er, while his daughter and Mr. Myers were in
Nelson, whither they had gone front his house,
be went lo the office, and received the letter
which lie held in his hand.
He said that, after reading the letter to his
daughter in reply to the one she had written to
Mr. Hoyt, heat once determined to visit Rich
mond for the purpose of arresting such pro
ceedings. On reaching the city, he sought
Mr. Hoyt, and approached him by saying, Mr.
Hoyt, I believe? Yos, was the reply. 1 wish,
then, Mr. Hoyt, to have a private conversation
with you—can you not accompany me to a
room in the Exchange? He replied that his
own room would probably be as suitable a
place as they could go to hold their conversa
tion; and they accordingly repaired to it for
that purpose. On getting to Mr. Hoyt's room,
(said Major P.) 1 told him that I was the fath
er of Mrs. Myers, and was in possession of a
letter from him to his daughter, such as no gen
tleman would write to a married lady. Iloyt
told him it was written in answer to one from
Mrs. Myers. Major P. said that if he (Hoyt)
did not cease to be on terms of sach intimacy
with his daughter, it would bo the means of
destroying the happiness of Ins whole family;
and so sure as he brought disgrace upon tliern,
he sliould suffer death—if n>i, or ins sons who
might survive him, had to [ ursuo llio u -stroyer
of their peace to the exticioost point of rue uni
verse. Mr. Hoyt's repl was I at ho looked
upon Mrs. Myers as a sister, and ho would sa
crifice life belore she sliould suffei at his hands.
But (said Major P. to 11 ) .y our acquaintance
with my daughter must Leai an end It shall,
said H. 1 shall rely on your ptom hh, then?—
This (said Major P.) 1 repeated and remarked,
We understand each other, then, Mr. Iloyt?
Certainly, said he, and Heft him.
While in ihe Exchange, (continued Muj. P.)
about nightfall, Mr. Hoyt came, and sun. he
would like to have some further conversation
with mo. I have thought, sain lie, a* Mis. M.
and myself were so well acquainted, it might
be talked about if we were to breuk off so sud
denly—"You have no objection, 1 suppose, to
Mrs. M. and myself speaking when we meet."
'Here Maj P. repeated to Mr. Hoyt what he
had before said, that any man writing such a
letter deserved death itself. I fear publicity,
sir, of this affair—lest it destroy the
of a husband, and bring disgrace upon my
whole family.
Iloyt proposed to deliver up Mrs. Myers'
letter, if Major Pollard vrould give him back
his, thai they might he destroyed. This pro
position was declined by the latter, who said to
Hoyt that if he brought disgrace upon Mrs
Myers and her family, he should not rest until
he took his (H.'s) hie, and the letter should be
kept as his justification for doing so. Suppos
ing that Mr. Myers arid wife were still in Albe
marle, where lie had hoped they were to re
main for some time, he was surprised, on re
turning to the Exchange Hotel, after a short
absence, to find they had returned to Richmond.
Having spoken to Mr. Myers, he then entered
the parlor," and, to Iris amazement, found
Hoyt by the side of bis daughter. i\lr. Hoyt,
immediately on seeing him, retired. Feeling
cxasporated, he went to his office early tlio next
morning prior to leaving the city, and called
him out. He told him that he was astonished
to find him, after what had passed between
them, in conversation with his daughter. Hoyt
assured hiin he was not. Well, said Major P., j
if this be persisted in, Mr. Hoyt, 1 will have re
venge—and if 1 should perish in the effort, 1
shall leave sons behind who will pursue you to
the remotest points of the world. This con
versation between Maj P. and Mr. Hoyt took
place about the 25th June.
The Richmond Republican contains the
whole of the intercepted correspondence, and as |
the unfortunate affair has created great interest j
in this community, we publish the subjoined.
The first is the letter from Mr. Hoyt to Mrs. |
Myers, which was intercepted by her father. I
The others are from Mrs. Myers to Mr. Hoyt, |
and intercepted by her friends.
My Dearly Loved Virginia:
While lying on my couch, where 1 had been
for some two hours, thinking of thee, much to
my surprise and delight, your dear, sweet letter;
of the 13th inst., was handed me. Little did 1 ;
think, while having sweet thoughts of thee, 1 ;
should so soon have words before me traced by j
thy loved hand, fresh from thy lieart; and yon
may well imagine what pleasure the surprise of
the roeeipt olyour loved letter gavo me.
You tell me my letter must be placed in the
post office on Thursday afternoon, to reach you
on Saturday, and it teas past 1 o'clock when 1
received your letter. The mail leaves in the
morning at 8 o'clock. So you see 1 have but
little time to write; but that little shall be devo
ted to thee, my precious, dear one, for, as you
well know, niy time is never as pleasantly pass
ed as when devoted to my loved Virginia
You cannot conceive, darling, the pleasure your
letter lias given me; tho'pacts of nil your letters
give me pain. 1 hope tho', the time is not far
distant, when letters from you svill contain noth
ing but what is pleasure lor you to write, and
for me to read.
Your dear, sweet letter, darling, does give
| me "proof beyond doubt," bow devoutly you
| are mine, and more proof I cannot give that 1
I am yours devoutly; tho' 'tis a pleasure for me,
to reiterate all that 1 have said. You well
know, dearest one, how you are loved by nie,
and I know sufficient of thy dear heart, to sa
tisfy me that you do deserve all my affection,
and I once more tell you 'tis all yours; no divi
sion shall be made in it; 'tis all thine, loved
I one; keep it; cherish it, —and thee it will never
forsake; 'tis entwined around thy precious heart
I too strong, ever to be severed. Be satisfied of
ibis, my precious loved Virginia. Have no
doubl of me, darling, there is no cause for it;
you huvo a hold on my affection, which you
can always retain if you choose; 'twill not leave
I till bid by thee.
Your loved letter tells me we are soon to
meet again, and happy will be that moment,
when 1 can again look on that sweet face and
press to these thy ruby lips; and oh! that when
! wo do meet, we could remain together, never
te be separated. You ask how 1 can refuse to
; make you happy? You well know, dearest Vir
-1 ginia, how anxious I am to make you a happy
woman, and 1 would willingly give my life to
accomplish it, would that but do it. You can
I but know, that it is not an easy matter to ac
! complish all we wish. When we meet, we will
! have a long talk on this subject, so necessary
[to our mutual happiness. Luved one, how can
\ you fancy that I think you would riot be Icind
to me,— kind to me, you could not be other
wise; this I am satisfied of, Virginia; and, Vir
ginia, there is nut an hour that 1 do not wish
what wo have so long been anxious for, could
be brought about. Reflect on my conduct,
does it not prove this? You well know it does;
you must know it. Continually am 1 wishing
you were mine, mine alone. My whole
thoughts are to accomplish this, dear love; this
subject is never out of my mind, and never shall
bo till thy happiness is complete. I know, my
loved one, 1 could make you happy at once;
but in doing this, I am anxious that every
thing should be so arranged that this happiness
should continue. You have had sorrow enough,
darling, and, in making a change, 1 want all to
be sun-shine, no clouds or dark spots before
you. Do you agree with me that this would
be best, love? Soon we will talk this all over,
and you will be satisfied that 1 am anxious to
make you perfectly happy.
Dearest Virginia, can you think, for ono mo
ment, that my I ive is not "sufficiently strong"
for any trials whatever? If 1 could accomplish
your perfect happiness, 1 would care not for my
happiness; yours is all that I look to; your be
ing happy would make me so. Doubt not my
love, I beg of you, dear; you must know that
you are the only being I ever did love; why
doubt me, then? I doubt thee not, darling.
Why, darling, should 1 tell you that 1 love you,
if Ido not? What ain Ito gain by it? Ido
love you, and love to tell you so. 1 was in hopes,
loved one, when you got with your mother and
family, you would have been less miserable,
but it seeins there is no change. Now, 1 beg
of you to tiy all in your power to be less mis
erable during your stay away from mo, and not
indulge in such awful thoughts, as you often
do. Did you reffect how miserable you would
leave me, dearest, were you to carry out with
your ou 4 n hands, what you speak of? Oh! 1
lieg of you, vanish from your mind such awful
thoughts Loved darling, I think it best that
your dear mother should know of your misery;
of this you can best judge with your dear sister.
Now, my precious Joved one, you must not
rind fault with me for sending you soshoi t a let
tor; you see I have had hut little time to write.
Your letter was post-marked the nth, tho'
written on the liLli; and hud 1 lime you should
have one of my long letters. 1 have been in
terrupted frequently, since I commenced this,
and 'tis now late. Pardon me for its shortness,
wont you love? For you know when I have
had the opportunity, 1 have given you long let
ters. You forgive me lor this short one, love,
I know you do; I almost fancy 1 hear those
sweet lips say yes.
How 1 do wish I could bo with you in the
country; could we but pass a few days together,
your friends would still say, "how changed."
Once more 1 must tell you that I love you
dearly. Last night 1 had a sweet dream of
[ thee; could you but know all my thoughs, you
would say my love was equal to yours, precious
Now, darling, pray forgive me; I really liavo
not had time to review the half of your dear,
kind letter, and if I am not allowed another
opportunity to write you during your absence,
it shall be done in person when we meet, and
that sweet meeting will soon come, 1 hope:
tho' you tell me 'tis twelve days ofl"; 1 hope
tho' 'twill be shortened. Darling, dear darling,
it really grieves mo to send you so short a let
ter when I know you expect a long one, a"d, j
to make up the deficiency, you must read such j
words as please you fierce.
Please remember most kindly to your dear
sister. Give me one dear, sweet, long kiss, in j
imagination, and believe me yours truly and sin- j
Dearest, how happy did we part on jester-J
day. Your words to me were so kind, so good. I
that I felt as light and as happy as a bird. Oh!!
my darling, tell me did ever man have such;
power over woman as you have over me? Ne
ver, never. 1 may be miserable, bathed in
tears; yet one word from thy dear lips can make ;
perfectly happy, and chase every tear away,
arid clothe the face in the brightest smiles.— j
Dear love, when you sometimes think of thisj
mighty influence you exert over me, Oh! do i
you not feel happy, to know that the happiness
of one being rests with you. There must be, 11
and should be joy in the thought. Dear one,
you have chased away all gloom from me.— i
Now I am very, very happy, foryou have said,
darling, you still love me, will ever lovo me, j
and, my God, what more can 1 desire? With i
those blessed words, dearest, ever in my me- j
rnory, I cannot be sorrowful. When 1 think,
mine own one, that you love mo, 'tis unpossi-;
ble to be sad; there is joy in every word you ul- ;
ter. Darling one, are you not glad you have
told me you love me —because, it has made me
so happy. Dearest, you will never regret tell- !
ing me this, for I am not the being In take
advantage of so holy a feeling as thy affection. |
Sweet one, you know 1 am yours so wholly, j
so entirely, 'hat even my very thoughts in sleep
are pours—and 1, loving thee as 1 do, /to take i
advantage of thy love? Oh! impossible, impossi- j
ble. Dearest, how Ido ADOREtbee, for what
you promised me; that in me you would have
; unbounded confidence, that you would always ,
! tell me, when you thought 1 was acting wrong;
i that you would speak with me truly and with-!
I out the least reserve, just us you would were 1 j
j your wife; and believed you should do so, for ;
in the deep and trusting love of this heart Jam,
your wife —mine angel how kind in you to say '
j you will treat we, with such confidence, and
; oh! do 1 not appreciate it? yes; beloved, from
the inmost-recesses of my soul —and dearest I
j promised just what you did—that you should
| know every thought, every feeling of this bo
som—and now iny own darling, will we not be
1 the happiest beings, on earth—only think sweet
tone —we love each other so devotedly, our
: hearts are so wholly given to one another—wo
have not even a thought for other than the idol'
;of our affections. Wo have such perfect faith,
: we have not even a doubt— there is such holy,
; heavenly confidence between us. Ob! dear,
dearest love, ure we not very, very happj?—
Jviss mo, mine own love, and say yes! that
dear kiss seals the words we have spoken.—
■ Dear one, you are so kind to me. Last night,
as I kissed you, ere 1 fell asleep, 1 thanked
Heaven, that it had given ine such a precious
treasure as thy love. Oh! God grant 1 may
never, never lose it. Dear one, how I love thee!
How this heart does idolize thee! Precious
darling, remember you promised 1 should see
you at church to-morrow. Do not disappoint
tnc —for oh! how happy thy very glance will
make me. Do not blame tnc for my dress to
morrow—it shall be explained when we meet.—
Dearest, look at me to-morrow, and see if eve- j
ry look does not brain wit'i lovo for thee. Re
member now, and look, and if you think so,
tell me so, by one sweet glance. On Mon
-1 day, tny loved one, L am going to Mrs. C 's,
,as Mr. M loaves that morning. I shall,
j he at the Exchange Monday, at 12 o'clock.—
So dearest, you be sitting in the parlor, and
that will be better, for it will look as if we!
meet by accident. 1 feel rather unpleasantly at
being here alone; but i shall trust to you, dar
ling, to make the time pass happily, and you
will do so, won't you, love? Love, I shall have 1
thy dear note. Oh! how 1 will kiss it. Would !
that you might see me, when I receive it. 1;
will tell you what you would say— how she
does love me! Dearest, once more, 1 must tell j
you how happy that blessed promise lias n.ade
me! When I think of the sweet confidence j
which is hereafter to unite us, 1 am 100 happy, j
Love you for those words? Oh, dearest, 1 do j
worship you, adore you, for them—they are my\
salvation. A thousand kisses, you dear sweet;
angel of mine. Dearest lovo, fearing to keep I
your servant waiting, I have but one moment
to kiss you for your darling note. You are too
kind to me—are you not, love? No, no! not
100 kind— for, oh! I love you so dearly! IVlon
day, at 12 o'clock, I will kits you twenty limes
for this sweet note—but won't you get tired of
so many! Say, dearest. To-morrow, remem
ber, you promised to be at church. 'Twill be
sucii a joy just to look on thee—and then one
dear glance—how heavenly 'twill bo! Come,
dear love, do come. Kiss me, your dear dar
ling, and always love me as your pure, devot
SANDS, LEST & Co.'s CIRCUS. The Wash
ington Union has the following notice of this
The circus company of Sands, Lent & Co.,
which is to exhibit in this city on the 14lh,
15th, 16th and 17th inst., has attracted much
attention at the north and east. Its principal
feature is the remarkable training of the horses,
and Iroop of 12 beautiful ponies attached to the
establishment. These, and the graceful per
formances of Mr. Sanus, and hist.vo litllesons,
were for months the wonder of New York city
and Boston. Upon the report of our cotempo
raries of the press in those cities, we do not he
sitate to recommend all patrons of such amuse
incuts ill Washington, to pay tins exhibition a
of Tuesday was as violent in Philadelphia as it
was in this city and vicinity. Tiio Chronicle
of Wednesday says:
The rain commenced about two o'clock yes-!
terday morning, and continued falling briskly j
till afternoon, when it came down in torrents,
and the wind blew a hurricane. This continu-j
ed till 5 o'clock, when the rain stopped, but
the wind continued high, and after 0 o'clock it
commenced raining again. This kept the olec- j
tion polls pretty clear all day. Although not |
so pleasant for election purposes, yet the rain j
was much wanted, especially 111 the country.— 1
The tromendous blow froin the Noitheast, did ■
great mischief in various parts of tho city.--]
Numberless umbrellas were turned inside out
or torn to pieces. Yet, amidst all the storm, ]
politicians were as busy as bees drumming up
j voters, walking about like drowned rats, speei
j mens of parly devotion. The large transparen- j
,cy at the Whig Head Quarters, in Sixth St., |
J opposite Minor, was lorn to pieces by the]
wind. The large flag at the Native Head
| Quarteis, in Chosnnt street below Sixth, was|
! also much torn. The flag at the Democratic
Head Quarters in Sixth street below Shipped,
I was completely blown to shreds. Part of the ]
j roof of the Assembly Buildings was blown off.;
The tin roof of W. H. Gatzmer's New Yorkj
: Railroad office, on Dulaware Avenue, below
Walnut street, was blown off. The chiinncy !
of a back building attached tu the dwelling J
house of Mr. J. M. Frailey, in Schuylkill Sixth
street below Walnut, was blown down, crush-1
iug in tho roof to the floor of the dining room, ]
from which the family had only retired but a
few minutes, making quite a narrow escape.—
The fences in the vicinity were all blown j
down. Part of the roof was blown oft* of the
large stable at the northeast corner of Seventh ;
and Market streets. The tide in the Delaware
was unusually high, and the river very rough i
and boisterous
Late last evening at 7 o'clock, the water
had risen over the wharves and still an liuur
nnd a half to rise. The steamer John Stevons 1
was compelled to seek shelter from the gale on j
the Camden shore. The raco boats Ariel and
Dolly were blown from their moorings, at the
lower point of the Island, and dashed to pieces.!
A canal boat, loaded with flour, sunk in the
dock at Race street wharf. Many trees in va- j
rious parts of the city were uprooted, and awn
ings torn to shreds.
During the hurricane, the eastern end of St.
Michael's Church, in Second street abovo Mas
ter, Kensington, fell out through the combined 1
influence of the wind and rain. This Church
was not quite finished, but the walls were all
completed and the rafters raised for the roof a
week or two, and the building was supposed to
bo a substantial one. It is now a ruin again,
the joists and rafters having all fallen down
j with the back wall.
BIENNIAL SESSIONS. WO copy the follow
lowingfrom tho llagerstown Herald:
Many u voter when asked the question, "For
or against Bienniai Sessions," knew not what
to answer. One at this box*, answered that he

nobody's business. In Clearspring, some old
fellow supposed it to be anothor d—d railroad
project through Virginia, to tax Maryland
Thus, in this highly blessed counry—highly
blessed with newspapers, we mean—we find
men who know so little of this great public 1
matter, that they supposed it lobe a railroad;

SANTA ANNA'S FLOCKS— A Supply for the
Army. The writer in Blackwood's September
number on Mexico, says a large portion of the
country between Vera Cruz and tho city of
Mexico, belongs to the well known Gen. Santa
I Anna. The soil of his vast estate is fertilo, but
left to its natural fertility—the General being
a shepherd, and said to have from 40 to 50,000
I head of cattle in his pastures. Should tho gov
ernment quarter tho army on him for a while,
would it not greatly expedite their efforts to i
j "conquer a peace?"
