?.t THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE 13, 1839. -...
V. M. Cimit Court.
Before Judge Betts.
The United States v. Samuel R. IVeed. In this
case the jury brought in a verdict for the plaintiffs.
Damages $12,275 76 and costs.
The United States v. Joel Stone. His Honor in
formed the jury that the counsel on both sides had
?greed to submit this case under the charge of the
Court, aud that as there was now no fact for them
to pass on, the whole question would resolve itself
into the opinion of the Court on the law for the regu
lation of steamboats.
Congress had assumed to have the right to regulate
all steamboats navigating the rivers and lakes, and
also those intended to go to sea. Amongst other regu
lations which Congress had enacted, was one provi
ding that iron rods or chains should be used for steer
ing such vessels instead of ropes.
The construction to be put upon this act was all
important to the community* and the questions which
were now under consideration where equally as im
portant. One point in this controversy was whether
the Legislature had the power to adopt such a law,
and the other whether it was possible to carry out its
provisions.yrhe Court believed that both these ques
tions must be answered in the atlirmative, and it also
believed that by this act Congress had expressly for
bid the use of ropes in the steering of steamboats,
and that it applied to all steamboats that are required
to take out licences, and moreover in the opinion of
the Court, it applied to all steamboats plying on the
high seas. The Court also believed that if there was
any reason why this regulation should be applicable
jlied wit"
to the latter class of vessels, that reason applied with
increased force to those vessels employed solely in
the navigation of rivers, for on the high seas, if a
iteaisib >at took fire, it would inevitably be destroy
ed, but on a river, if such an accident occurred, the
preservation of the tiller and the possession of the
power of steering the vessel, might prove the only
safeguard ofthe lives and property of all on board the
vessel, which might be easily run ashore and the
people get safe to land.
In the present case, there mi?ht be a question as
to the tiller ropes; but there could be no question as
to the boat having ropes round the wheel. As the
question stood, there must be a verdict for the plain
tiff, reserving the question of law, subject to the opin
ion of the Supreme Court of the U. States, to which
tribunal the question would betaken for final adjudi
cation. There is no doubt but in the present case
the infliction of the penalty would be a great hard
ship on Capt. Stone, because he doubtless meant to
conduct his boat according to the law, as he under
stood it, but no man must be permitted to take upon
himself to give his own construction to the law, or
to comply with its provisions just so far as it com
ported with his own convenience. If Congress had
the power to pass the law, it nmst be carried out;
and it is of no use to say that evil may ensue if we
carry out these enactments. In the case of Lake
boats, Congress directed fire engines to be placed on
board, and we know that the owners and masters re
plied, that fire engines would be of no use. So in
the case of these tiller ropes and the substitution
of chains, it is of no use to say that the compass will
not traverse, or that the boats cannot be got through
a particular place; the law must be carried out, and
if found inconvenient to individuals and the public,
the law must be altered.
After some further general observations from his
honor, the Jury found a verdict for the United States
for the full amount claimed, viz: $300 and costs, sub
ject to the opinions of the Count of Chancery.
The United States vs. Woolsey.?This was an ac
tion to recover a penalty for using steering ropes on
board the steamboat Providence. Mr. Hull, on the
part of the defendant, submitted the following propo
sition in writing to the Court:?
4> The defendant offers lo prove, llml it would not be practi
cable n ilh a due regard to the safety of Ihe boat I'rovidrure
an J the lives of the passengers, to uivigste through liellgate
and the Sound by a tiller *l.>ae, or exclusively by chain rods, or
by cbsins ciolu?ivelj,or rodi ait.l ?lions uuilrd exclusively.'1
The District Attorney said he did not intend to
nff?r nay objeem is, but he should prefer the word
" possible," because the word practicable might
merely mean inconvenient to the parties.
Captain Bunker was then sworn, and Mr. Hall's
proposition read over to him. lie said in reply, that
be should not like to say that it would be impracti
cable, but that it would certainly be unsafe, unless
the speed of the vessel was to be reduced from 14 or
13 mile* an hour to some (> or 7. He hud taken a boat
to Providence with a tiller ouly, but that was after
breaking the rope The great difficulty in chains
was, that if the chain was strong enough to hold the
rudder, it was too large to permit o| steering the
? hip. Another steamboat captain confirmed this tes
timony, and the Court then adjourned the further
bearing <>t the case until Thursday morning.
V. M. MnnknlV OWcr.
Before Judge Ingrahaiu.
Joseph Allen wai brought up charged with assault
ing Morgan S. Gordon, the master of the American
barque Ellen, in the port of Matanzas, on the 3d of
May last. 1 he assault was clrarly proved and the
prisoner fully committed in default of getting hail.
Curtis Morse, the 2d mate of the American ship
llarkaway was charged with creating a revolt and
assaulting Capt. Nicholson the master of that vessel.
Capt. N detailed a long series of insubordinate con
duct and neglect of duty on the part of the accused,
which induced him todegrade Morse from his station
?n hoard the ship. After tais, Capt. N. determined to
put Morse in irons, and it was in wresting a knife
from his hand, which he had refused to deliver up,
thai the o.fence was committed. Judge ingraharn
thought that the offence did not come within the
meaning of the act, and discharged the accused.
Conosr.a s Orncs, June 13th.?The Coroner held
an antr mortrm examination at the house of John
Odeil, corner of Rivmgton street and the Bowery,
on view of the body of Bhroeder who resided
at 173 Christie street. It appeared from the testi
mony of several witnesses, that the wounded wtynan
was the wife of a tier man mechanic, then absent in
Michigan. That on '1 u?-sday, in consequence of some
suspicions, the neighbors broke into the room and
found Mrs. Shroedcr in a most pitiable condition,
from wounds in her head, inflicted by a small iron
bar wli irh lay in the room.
The following is her examination by the Cor
oner.
Question? A hat is your name!
Answer?Mv name is Schro?der.
Question?llow did you get these wounds !
Answer?I dont know.
(Question?Remember yon have taken a solemn
oath, and the doctor says prol>ahlv you will die. You
have sworn to tell the truth. Wow you can tell if
any person injured yon.
Answer?1 dont ksow. I was sick, and vomited
Terv much, and might have hit my head agair.st the
Wall.
Question?When did yon see your son f
Answer?I did not see him nor hear from him last
Sight as I know of.
Question?Where is ynnr husband !
Answer?My husband is not at home.
Question?Was your son here last night !
Answer?Me came towards morning?said he heard
1 was sick, and came to see me.
The jury, after a long exaunnaf ion, fennd the fol
lowing verdict?"That the said Srhroeder
was Wounded by some person unknown ; but, from
the testimony produced, they have good reason to
suspect it was done by her son, Henry Schroedcr."
The Coroner immediately issued his warraht, and
had Henry Hchroeder arrested on the charge of mal
treating (lis mother. If the woman dies, her son
stands in an awkward predicament.

LATEST AND MOST IMPROVED PATENT TRUSS.
THE attention of those afflicted with Hernia, is called to a
new Truss, lately patented in the city of New York. Its
superiority over every other instrument will be evident on a
mere inspection, for unlike every other Truss, the rupture pad
is pressed upon by a double spring, which is so fixed a* to con
vey the necessary pressure to the lower part of the rupture pad,
thus keeping the pad closely applied in every attftude of the
body, and adjusting and adapting itself under all circumstances
to trie person and to the part to which it is to be applied. Pos
sessing a double spring, and consequently a double degree of
elasticity, it is rendered easy aud convenient to the wearer
The above Truss has taken the place of all others for the per
manent retention and cure of hernia or rupture it is almost
the only Truss aow iu use in the city of New York, and the
adjacent country. The above Truss is adjusted and applied by
a burgeon, who lias devoted particular attention to the subject
of hernia, and the construction and application of Trusses, at
his office, No. 9 Ann street, near Broadway, two doors from the
American Museum, where they may be had wholesale and re
