Tho examination of tho parties concerned in
lling Mr. Hoyt, at Richmond, was continued
i Tuesday. We extract tho following testi
ony elicited during the day, from the report
the' Richmond Republican.
Major Pollard —recalled—.said, the evening
had a conversation with Hoyt, lie asked me
i did not think Mrs. Myers an unhappy wo
lan —and added that Myers was a had tend
ered, passionate man, arid an unkind husband,
remarked to him that Mr. Myers was a kind,
evoted husband, and if my daughter, (Mrs.
lyers,i was unhappy, it was her own fault.—
believed he did every thing to consult her
leasure, and make her happy.
Benjamin F. Mosby— sworn—l know Mrs.
lyers and Mr. Hoyt. 1 have been hoarding
t the Exchange about one year. About the
st of June 1 saw Hoyt in the ladies parlor witli
Irs. Myers. She was sitting in a rocking
hair, and ho on an ottoman directly in front
fher. On the lltli of August, between the
lours of 12 and 1 o'clock, 1 went to No. 18,
in tho Exchange,) whore I was frequently in
he habit of laying down, during tho day.—
,Vhen I got there I found both doors locked.
This being unusual, I went into No. 19, and
ook a seat whore I could see. Shortly after 1
;aw the door of No. 18 open, and saw a lady
:ome out. I went to see who it was, and found
tto he Mrs. Myers. I thou took a stand, that
i could see any person who might attempt to
escape from the doors or windows, and remain
ed in this position some minutes No one
coming out, I went to the door and opened it,
when I saw D. Marvin Hoyt make his escapo
from the room by tlio hack window. Shortly
after I went lo Hoyt's room—ho seemed con
fused. At this time Boyden was at Old Point,
hut when he returned, on the 15th August, 1
mentioned it to him, and told him tiie persons
wero Mrs. Myers and Hoyt. Alter this lie vis
ited the Exchange frequently. Four weeks af
ter this, I walked into the lady's parlor and
there found Hoyt reclining on a long ottoman,
with his head partly in Mrs. Myers' lap. 1 had
got in before 1 saw them, but left like a rattle-.
I snake was afier nre. (One of the counsel ask
ed Mr. Mosby to repeat how often he had seen
Hoyt and Mrs. Myers together—he replied it
would take him 15 hours to do so.) Mr. Mos
by went on to state—l never saw them in No.
18 again. After this, Mrs. Myers was at the
Hotel very late one night—don't know what
time she went away. Another evening I saw
her leave, and Hoyt escort her down tho steps.
Three or four weeks ago I called on Col. Myers
(for that purpose) and informed him of what I
had soen. Mr. Wm. Myors was in New York.
I did not hear Mrs. Myers' visits spoken of hy
persons about the hotel. Some gentlemen told
me he heard the rumor in Chesterfield. 1 de
tailed all the circumstances to Col. Myers.
Col. Munford —sworn. The counsel for the
accused asked Col. M. if lie had ever known or
noticed Mr. Hoyt and Mrs. Myers together—
when and where? He remarked that his at
tention was attracted by seeing Hoyt going to
and from Mr. Myers' several times, but he had
never seen tliem together there. Uo had, how
ever, visited the Theatre some time last spring,
where he saw Mr. and Mrs. Myers in their box.
He took a seat by the side of Mrs. M., and at
tempted to engage in conversation with her,
but soen found that her attention was in anoth
er direction, and that she did not seem to be
listening to any thing he had said to her. This
he thought strange of, for Mrs. Myers had al
ways been in the habit of paying attention to
what lie said in conversation. On this occasion,
she was evidently paying no attention to the
performance, and, thought Col. M., from what
lie had heard of Mrs. M.'s imprudent conduct,
he now had a clue to her movemonts.
On looking across the Theatre he observed
Mr. Hoyt in a box nearly opposite to Mr. and
Mrs. Myers, and himself. He stood apparent
ly behind two gentlemen, and his head could
be seen over their shoulders. I determined,
said Col. M., to leave tho box in which we
were sitting, and go down to the pit where 1
would be better able to see what was going on
between Mrs. Myers and Mr. Hoyt. Mrs. M.
was sitting husband, and evidently
doing something she wished to conceal. She
seemed to be talking in Telegraphic signs to
iioyt across the way, while he did nothing in
return but gaze most intently on her. Occa
sionally, 11. woulil change his position, and she
smiling in a most peculiar manner, which struck
him [Col M.] as being most imprudent. He
bad seen similar conduct on the part of Mis.
M. towards Mr. 11., at tit. Paul's Church.
I'oitiaux Robinson —sworn. The first time a
meeting of Mrs. Myers and Iloyt attracted my
attention, or aroused my suspicion, was about
the time Mrs. Mason, Capt. Huntei's sister,
was at the Exchange. Capt. H. asked me to
pay my attention to his sister while there. On
one occasion, whilo she was there, 1 went to
take a snack. I met Mr. Tyler, who asked me
what sort of a woman was Mrs. Myers. 1 in
quired of him why he asked the question, say
ing she is Win. R. Myers' wife—at the same
time treating the matter lightly. He said he
thought it strange she remained there so long.
1 walked by the parlor door and saw Moyt and
M rs. Myers in there. I came back and saw
her carriage. Then went home, returned about
half past 2 o'clock, looked up New street aud
saw the carriage. I went in the hotel and saw
Mr. R. Myers. Presumed he had been there
all the lime. Same day Mrs. Myers drove up ;
to the door, with Mrs. Myers and her sister in
the hack, but did not get out. Then asked, or
sent a card to Mrs. Mason to lake a ride. Mrs.
M. did not go. Hoyt had been sick sometime,!
and tins was his first day out. Ho then went
to his room and was confined there seveial
days. Mrs. Myers's sister was coining up
street in the carriage arid bailed mo. I got in
with her and went to Mr. Win. Myers's house.
I went in the parlor, when Mrs. Myers' came
to the head of the steps and called to nro. I
asked her to come down. She replied she was
not dressed. Then she asked how lloyt waa,
saying she understood lie was siek, and that
she had not seen him at church for some time.
This aroused my suspicions, as 1 had seen her
in the Exchange | arlor witli him not long be
fore. I have seen her at the Exchange fre
quently. Hoyt was generally there, and she
seemed to be pleased with him. While Win.
R. Myers was at the North, about the time
those rumors burst forth, sho came to the Ex
change to spend the evening. Seeing her there
at night, I thought 1 would stay and go with
her homo, merely for the purpose of preventing
Hoyt from doing so. When time came for her
to go home, I went into the parlor, and found
her with her bonnet on, and Hoyt with his hat
on and cane in his hand. I did not offer my
services, but expected slio would ask mo, as
she had done, to accompany her. This was
while Win. R. Myers was at the North, and
Mrs. Myers was staying at Dr. Cabell's. 1 saw
Hoyt leave the house with her about half-past
10 o'clock. Boyden knew she visited there,
for I have spoken to him of her frequent visits.
I had a conversation with Hoyt about the ru
mor ttie night before he was shot. He declared
his innocence. I then told him lie was at least
guilty of gross imprudence, in going with Mrs.
Myors home at a late hour of the night, wli<n
such reports were in circulation. He acknow
ledged it was wrong—but attempted to justify
himself by saying that he thought her carriage
was at the door waiting for her, and should not
have gone with her home, hut for her insisting
on it, and saying sho did not care for public
opinion. He acknowledged lie had acted very
wrong in going with her. I told hirn Win. R.
Myers had arrived at the Junction that even
ing. Said he knew it, that lie expected a dif
ficulty, hut ail that can be said is that 1 was in
dependent. He then remarked—"when all
parties are heard, I shall stand higher in this
community, as an honorable man, than ever
Col. Sam. Myers stood—and in my dying
breath, I shall proclaim her innocence and
mine." Don't remember having any conver
sation with Mr. Tyler about the book. I pur
posed making the affair known to Col. Samuel
Myers, hut was advised not to do so by a
friend with whom 1 consulted. I left Hoyt at
his door late the night before he was shot, and
presume 1 was tlio last person lie conversed
with previous to the occurrence of the 28th
William R. Munfard —sworn. I have met
Mr. Hoyt 20 or 30 times corning out of Mr.
Myers's gate, but never saw hint go in. lie
wont there regularly for two months. Thinks
the time about the middle of May.
Several more letters from Mrs. Myors to Mr.
Hoyt, wero read before court, all written in a
6train similar to those published yesterday. Wo
copy the following:
THURSDAY NISHT, 1-2 past 1 o'clock.
At this late hour, mine own dearest, behold
me writing you. Every soul, save myself, is
asleep; no rest for me; 1 am far 100 miserable
to sleep. Oh! dear, dearest one, does not all
this tell you of the devotion, the adoration of
this poor heart of mine? My God! never, ne
ver was there such love before. I ratired, dear
one, but finding 1 could not sleep, stole out of
bod, and now, if you could but sec me, darling,
sitting here, all alone, in tho deep silence of
night, tracing tlreso words, oh! would you,
could you ever doubt the truth of my perfect af
fection? Oil! dearest one, what misery to think
you are now ill, suffering, and I, your own
dear one, away from you. Oh! God, would
that I could be beside you tins moment, what
joy, what happiness; it crazes me to think of it.
Oh! that thy dear head was now resting on this
bosom; thy precious hand clasped in mine, and
oh! God, that J might now pross those sweet
lips to mine. Dear love, you know not how 1
long to be near you, now that you are suffer- J
ing; now, wore I pormitted, I might prove to
you, my tender, entire love. Oh! how I would i
love to nurse you; how I would delight to mi
nister to every want, and 1 should be so jealous
of the dear pleasure, that not one thing should
you receive from another. These hands should
give you all; yes, all you wish. Oh! how sweet
'twould be to sit and watch every changein thy
dear faco, and anticipate and read there every
wish, ere it was expressed. Oh! that I could
now fly to you, and press you to my heart, en
circle you in the arms of tenderness and love;
to have thy dear head resting on this arm, and
soothe you to sleep with the words of sweet
love, and then, while you slept, to bend over
you, watch over you, pray for you, to kiss
those dear lips, while you would be so uncon
cious of all, to take thy dear hand and hold it
close in mine, to entwine these arms around thy
dear neck, and fee! that 1 then held in my em
brace all that 1 loved, ail I adored; oh! this
would he bliss, yes, bliss unspeakable; tho very
idea of such happiness thrills the inmost fibres
of my soul. But no, it cannot bo. Oh! agoniz
ing reflection; you, Kline own adored, idolized
being, now on a bed of sickness and pain, and
I cannot be beside you; i, wlio love you to such'
desperation; I, who now would rush through
even the pains of death to be near you, and yet
I cannot. Oil! believe me: am I not l ight, when
1 say there never has existed, in all this world,
so wretched a poor creature as myself. What
have 1 on this eaith to make mo happy,—noth
ing save thy dear love—nothing save thy own
precious self, and loving you till every feeling
of this bosom is absorbed in one burning pas
sion. With alt this, we are separated, divided,
perhaps, eternally; but oh! God, it cannot be; I
will not believe that two beings so indissolubly
united by the purest affection, should bo sever
ed forever. Dear love, when 1 ivrito, or evea
think on this subject, it almost kills me, and
ill is night I am almost too miserable for exis
tence. I feel this instant 1 could welcome death,
so perfectly wretched am I. I fear 1 shall be
ill to-morrow, for 1 cannot close my eyes in
sleep; all 1 can piny is, that God will have mer
cy on my soul, for 'lisa bleeding, torn one.—
J Good night, love; would that I were now
watching by thy dear side; then I should be so
happy that 1 would tlever wish to sleep, for to sit
j and nurse you, mine own dearest, would he
: sweeter than all the rest and sleep I could have.
FRIDAY, 11 o'clock.
Again this morning, behold me writing you.
Dear one, I am so miserable I can do nothing j
hut write. Oh loved one, that I could know '
how you are now. 1 pray from iny soul, that i
you are better—well. Oh dearest one, would j
that I could ho ill, instead of you! Would that j
I might boar every pain—take from you every
suffering. Oil how cheerfully would Ido it, for
it would he such happiness to think I was suf
fering, instead of you. Dear love, I have never j
had these feelings before. My God! do they |
| not speak to you of worship—idqtalry? I am in
: a perfect state of excitement, 'till I receive your i
t letter. Nothing can picture to you my anxie- !
| ty. lam almost beside myself. Oh that dear j
' letter!—may it tell nieyou are better, and thus
j send one feeling of happiness to a broken heai t.
; Now dearest one, 1 have another, and the !
; strongest proof to give you of my love. Yes- j
j terday,when 1 read your note, saying you would ;
( not be able to come here on Saturday, I resolv
j ed, by some means, to defer my departure for a i
| few days, hoping by that delay, 1 should he able i
to have one dear meeting in this room, conse-!
| crated by so many happy associations with thy
| dear self, mine own love. I cannot bid you j
j adieu uny where save here, for I liavo so much j
lo say to you, that I long for a few hours of per- I
j feet seclusion and privacy. This morning I j
| entreated Mr. M only to wait till Wednes- j
, day, for 1 really felt too sick to leave home on
[ Monday. At first lie positively refused, saying j
I should go on that day. Dear love, it was a j
great struggle to my own pride, to beg and on- !
treat a man thus, who treats me so cruelly.— I
But oh dearest! what would I not do to see you
| once more. Ho at length told me there was !
j hut one condition on which he would remain, j
; Ho would stay until Wednesday, if I promised
I what lie asked. Good God! When he named i
j the condition, my blood was chilled in my veins ,
| —for a moment I could not speak. Oh dear- !
i est! it is a most frightful, awl'ul condition to
j ine, and to yield, is like yielding up all my wo
' man's pride—all my delicacy. You can inia-
I gine tho promise, dearest. 1 cannot write it. j
| Dear love! though I shudder at such a proposal, '
1 promised it, even though to perforin it, will |
belike death—for, dearest, 1 knew if I left on !
Monday, I might not see you but once—per
j haps not at all. Ii I remained, 1 would see you.
1 iiis and this only decided me—for oh mine
own one ! 1 would give up all on earth, to see
you. Loved one, il i could tell you llio condi
tion, then you would indeed prize the love
which prompted ine to yield feelings which you
know are yours, and yours only. Now dearest
one, shall 1 not see you many tunes ere I leaver :
and will we not have ouo parting here? Oh
this will recompense ine fur all I have done; and
God knows how much it is. Dear one, you
say will not 1 come to you to-morrow. Yes,
sweet one, that 1 will, and 1 would walk so
long as I had strength lo do so, just for one
kind word from those dear lips, 1 would riot he
willing lor you to come to mo to-morrow—fur
dear one, 1 would not have you Buffer any fa
tigue—any exertion. No, not for worlds; und
dear one, 1 fear you thought me unkind yester
day, in asking you to corne lo tho parlour. 1
know it was wrong; but dearest one, forgive
i me—l knew not what 1 asked. I was perfect
ly out of my senses, when I wrote you—for
love, misery, all, have nearly taken my reason
: from me. Dearest one, I read your note—it
will either send misery or gladness to the heart
of y our devoted . Your ncto has indeed
| sent misery to my heart God only knows now
what will become of me. 1 cannot write, dear
ost. All I can say, is to beg, to entreat of you
jto see me to-rnorrow. I ask it in the name of
mercy—in the name of love. I shall be there
j precisely at half past 12 o'clock; and oh ! God
grant we may meet. Not strength for one
I word more—miserable past experience.
says the Philadelphia Eagle, that on the even
ing of the 3d inst., Mr. Albert Johnson,aged
about 23, son of Mr. Jesse Johnson, residing
near Penn Square, in Norristown township,
Montgomery county, mot with a shocking
death at the hands of Samuel Putz, son of Mr.
Putz, inkeeper at Springtown, near near by,
who it seems is insane. For some days we
learn he had been very violent, and put the fa
mily in momentary fear of bodily injury. On
the evening in question, he had locked all the
family in a room, threatening them with death
if they attempted to leave it. The young man
Johnson coming in at the time, Putz rushed
upon him with a naked dirk, stabbed him in
the abdomen which was ripped open, so that
his bowels protruded causing his death, after
suffering great agony, in twenty-four hours.—
Putz was then arrested, and imprisoned in the
jail at Norristown.
MAINE. It turns out that Ilezekiah Wil
liams, democrat, is elected to Congress in the
7lh district. The Aroostook district gave him
a very large majority, of course, so that lie is
elected by about 150 majority.
NEW COUNTERFEIT. Ten dollar hills pur
porting to be of the bank of Montgomery co.,
Pa., hut altered from the hank of Middlotown,
Md., are circulating in Philadelphia.
Wo received last night all the hack mails
from tho South, as late as due, and sum up
their contents below.
JwJul Fire at Columbus, Geo.—Four Square s
Consumed—Loss $260,000. By an extra from
tho Muscogee Democrat, we learn thai a tire
occurred at Columbus, Geo. on tho 9t!i inst.,
in the blacksmith shop of Marcus D. Junes, on
Oglethorpe street, a door or two from the cor
ner of St. Clair street, and in the rear of the
City Hotel.
There was a strong wind prevailing at the
time irom the eastward, which communicated
tho flames immediately to the livery stable of
Mr. James Sullivan, kept hy Mr. Bradford, on
the south, and the corner hu ildmg on the north,
occupied hy the Messrs. Reeds and Sutton &
Love, as a gin manufactory and carpenter shop. 1
Thence it sped with the lapidity of lightning
towards Broad street—laying waste tho City
Hotel, the market house, and the whole of that
square, except tho old theatre building on Craw
ford street, the foundry of Messri. Junneys',
and a small house on the corner below.
Tho fire thun crossed Broad st., communica
ting by the intense heat to the store house of
the Messrs. Sartswells and Mr. A. Calhoun's, !
when it sped right and loft as well as west
ward, to Front down to Crawford, excepting
only the dwelling of Mr. Fountain, on tho cor
ner of St. Clair and Front sts.
Ran ging downward across Crawford street,!
the devouring elements swept the old Colum
bus Hotel, and all that block of buildings
hounded by Broad, Front, Crawford and Tho
mas strects;also, the buildings of Mr. Toby and i
the Rev. Dr. Caiiwes, on tlio East side of Broad :
and below Crawford st., except the rosidencc
of Mrs. Brodnax. On both sides of Front st., [
also, from Hooper & Ridgeway's Warehou e,
down to Thomas street, including Budge Row,
all tlio wuy down to the River hank.
The number of houses consumed was from
120 to 150. The loss is estimated at $200,000.
The insurance $40,000, mostly at Hartford, ■
Violent Gale at Charleston. By a slip from
tho Charleston Courier, we learn that a vio-\
lentgalo set in there on Monday, and on Tues- i
day increased almost to a hurricane. The
shipping suffered considerably. The brig Gar- i
diner H. Wright hud all her bows, head, &0., i
cut down to the deck, and was otherwise injur-1
Important Rumor from Mexico. We nod Uie 1
following important rumor in the Picayune:
The American Flag of the 26th ult., publish
ed at Matamoras, announced the receipt of lale j
news there from the city of Mexico direct, but
tho details given are not of importance. Wo
are able to announce, however, most positive
ly, that letters wore received in this city by tho j
Day, by a gentleman de, ply interested in Mexi
can affairs, and from a very responsible foreign
source in Matamoras, which say that Geri. Al
monte has been appointed President of Mexico,
ad interim, and Gen. Santa Anna generalissimo
of the armies of Mexico; and further, that Santa
Anna was then engaged m raising and organiz
ing troops, intending to take the field in purson
in the North.
We have received the first number of the
Boletin Oficial, dated at Monterey, 4th Septem
ber, which contains ail Gen. Ampudia's orders
and proclamations, from tlio 2.8,1 i August to
the 3d September. Most of these documents
fiavo boon published already, hut we find Gen.
Ampudia's proclamation to the inhabitants of
Coahuila, Nucvo Leon and Tamaulipas, which
had not boon translated. It is dated at llio
General Quarters in the city of Sultillo, 28th
August, 1846, and runs as follows:
FELLOW-CITIZENS— For flic second lime I
appear in this interesting part of the Mexican
territory, commanding soldiers who anxiously
seek the combat, in order to lower the inso
lence of the foreign invaders of our soil, and to
free you from the odious slavery to which they
will undoubtedly reduce you, shouldjthey suc
ceed in carrying out their nefarious designs.—
, Of this truth you have before you visible ex
amples of the unfortunate fato of which your
neighboring brothers of'Bcjar, Bahia, and late
, ly, those of the North of Tamaulipas, have
been the victims.' What a contrast does this
I reprehensible system of conquest present—so
| unworthy the nineteenth century —to tho false
; promises and base seductions of which, on an
j other side, our enemies avail themselves, in or
der to cool your patriotic spirit, and to abate
; your desire to obtain libeity! And this they
do, my fellow-citizens, because they fear you,
j and are well aware that this groat principle is
| incontrovertible, that "when a nation wishes to
be free, it must he free "
Recollect, my countrymen, the heroic opposi
| tion which the Spanish nanon—in its cities and
! forts—offered to the lonnidahle army of the
great Napoleon—in opposit' in which finallv
resulted in their u ees- And no loss should
you remember thv the ncrocs of tho emanci
pation of our metropolis, unaccustomed to but
tle—without a knowledge oi ihe science of war
—without the necessary elements to attempt
it—and without the great r-aso s to actuate
them, by which we -.hoofi he infi (enced at pre
sent—fought bravely tor at rni of eleven
years,, until the chains which yoii -d us to the
will of a distant monarch were torn asunder!
We ceased to be a colony urn! Mexico, since
1821, lias brilliantly shone in the galaxy ol
civilized nations.
My friends, our brother documents are pre
paring for the battle—they v>,l| s-tid to the
field thousands of brave volunteers, with all ne
cessary supplies: and, lastly, it is very probable
that the Chief of our Independence- the foun
der of this Republic—the worth v benefactor of
the nation, and General ol Division—D >n An
tonio Lopez do Sar.ta Anna—will return to the
seat of war at the head of a large rein I rccuient
of troops, in order n> conduct tjio campaign
personally. Thus, then, ciicci op, my brave
countrymen, and show your imtignai t hostili
ty to our enemies by tu.ry moans which your
power, right and position should dictate,

I Sickness conlinuoH to prevail to a great ex
tent both at Camnrgo and Matamoras. At
t Lamargo it is said that there are eight or ten

All the hospitals in Matamoras are full, and

entered the hospitals thero on the week ending

that eight Mexicans, including two women, had

North Point, of the Florida and Texas cam
paigns, in all of which he displayed the greatest

Stricture. Yet this disease may exist, and none ot
these symptoms be perceptible, or if at all, they art
so slight e.s to pass unnoticed; hence, we find thou
sands laboring under this affection who are entirely
unconscious of it— such persons become weak in tbt
parts, seldom ha\>e children, and in the later stages of
this complaint are incapable of enjoying Marriage—
their systems become deranged, particularly ths
