New York, Tnrtilef, May 3U, Herald Mlcrary L>?pot, All the oew and cheap literary publications of the day <tre for ?ale, wholesale and retail, at the HaaaLD Ovrica, northwest corner ol Nassau and Pulton street. 1?- Si ?i. mams changing their residence, will pleoso notify at this nttice, corner of Naatau and Kultou streets, where they want the Herald left hereafter. Mors Foreign Nkws.?The steamship Acadia, from Liverpool, has been at sea ten days. News by her will be fifteen days later, and of considerable importance, bringing the overland mail Irom India. She is tbe crack boat of the Cunard line ; and should the present weather hold a day or two, we may expect her hy Thursday. The (treat Commercial Intel esta In DangrrTreaehery of the Wall street Press. The developments which have taken place in Wall street, during the last few weeks?and the course pursued by the prints in that region in relation to nata< n/tliftv r?n cntrimnrop niwl manniuntiirps incf broached in Baltimore?indicate most conclusively that we are on the eve of one of the greatest pieces of treachery that ever disgraced the commercial annals of any country. For some months past a very important fermentation haB been going on in Wall street, between the solid, solvent merchants, manufacturers and bankers on one side, and the bankrupts, stockjobbers, politicians and speculating financiers on the other side. For many months past the crisis among these interests have been approaching, and immediately after the movement made by Mr. Webster in Baltimore, the denou*mmt began to mature. It is now evident from what we see, hear and read, that the whole of the Wall street press, with one or two inconsiderable exceptions, are preparing to perpetrate one of the greatest pieces of fraud and treachery ever dreamed of, to those solvent mercantile, manufacturing and financial interests that have heretotore led and clothed them like the paupers of a poor house. And for what is this treachery perjietrated ? what fisjjthe motive causing such a fraud? Nothing?but simply to subserve the interests and hopes of a few broken down politicians who want office?or of bankrupt financiers who want some new paper machine to gut and let go the way of the United States Bank, the North American Trust Company, the Baltimore Trust Company, tVc. &c. The new and magnificent commercial policy which has been sketched by Mr. Webster, and is sunoor'ed bv rvrrv sensible merchant and mannfae turer, is to be cried down and execrated by the very journals, which are supported by these merchants, merely been use the bankrupts and speculators have a more intimate influence with the Wall street press, than the sound and practical men of business Is this the return which such presses as the "Cou rier and Enquirer" and the "American" ought to make to the Goodhues, to the How lands, to the Grinnells, to the Harmony*, to thr Browns-, and to all the leading merchants 111 New York that support their sheets 1 A crisis has now taken place in the connection b'tween the commercial interests of New Yprk and the Wall street press, that demands immediate action. A gross and palpable piece of treachery is contemplated tor the benefit merely of stock-jobbers and bankrupts A new commercial policy, that promises to be the only effectual remedy for the restoration of state credit?sound currency?and ( erniaBent rebel, is tube opposed and repudiated at the dictation of the penniless office beggers who hang about the offices and now control the Wall s.reet press If the merchants of New York are such fools as to tolerate suck treachery, be it so. There may be some species of luxury in having their throats cut just so Thk Public Press and Public Men ?The rela Hons which should subsist between the gentlemen connected wiih the public press, and those connected with public affairs, seem to be very little understood by the latter class of persons We have on several occasions been under the necessity of administering reproof in this matter, both in New York and elsewhere, and we are sorry to see the same necessity existing in the intelligent city, and among the intelligent people o( Boston. In the report of the eloquent sjieech, made on Friday last in Faneuil Hall, hy Mr. Charles G. Lorins, of Boston, we find the following statement made by our reporter:? In consequence of an interruption hy a person who came to the reporters' table, and asked some question, we did not catch the two or three succeeding sentences of this.speech. We have just called on Mr. Loring, and requested him to sup dy the hiatus-hut he very politely says?"Oh ! you can't report my speech?and besides I'm very busy." We must, therefore, go on from the point where the disagreeable interruption ceased ? Reporter of the Herald. Such a reply on the part of Mr. Loring, was at least uncalled for?nay, it was both ungentlemanly and impertinent, and indicates an assumption of su( eriority and superciliousness on hie part, that will be condemned by the common sense and common tustice of mankind. The application to Mr. Loring was complimentary on the part of our reporter ?it did not deserve the impertinent reply it received. Yet, in extenuation it may be said, that such conduct on the part of Mr. Loring. is only the Inst lin genng remains of those false notions of superiority, with which public men have heretofore treated the public press In point of talents, public usefulness, moral eminence, and patriotic purpose, our reporter was at least equal, in every res|>ect, to vlr. Loring, and in some respects far his superior. The arrogance which every new fledged orator has often put on, in reference to those connected with the newspaper press, must come down and take its rank with its equals. When newspapers are under the influence ol mere politicians?when its conductors are the mere paid agents of politicians, it may do to assame such airs of superiority. But Mr. Loring, and all the Lorings, ought to know that the newsp*per press, in these davs of intellectual progress, is beginning to declare its independence t?f dujwt of every kind?and that it takes its position as one of the great elements of society, admitting no superior but the laws of good order and society?and subrnitiing to no indignity to its re|>resentatives from any quarter. Wr, th- refore, request Charles G Loring, E-q., of Boston, the eloquent orator of the new movement, II I'ght ?I - best 11 >!

Tkit greet meeting had been duly advertued in the organ of the party, the Tribune, and alto at the Fourier meetings, aad an audience ol twenty-one people responded to the call. A woman of a thin lorm, with a thin face, and a thin nose, was in the speaker's place when we ar. rived, and she appeared to have been speaking ; but she stopped as we entered, and sat down very respectfully.? Pretty soon, our triend Brisbane entered, and very shortly,(the number in the meantime having increased to twen. ty-one,) the lady whom we took to be Mrs. Gove, proceeded with her discourse. Her object seemed to be to prove that woman was as good as man, if not a fettle better. She said she knew a man by the name of Walker, who thought woman had in tinct at least. She doubted whether it would be proper to call her a wax doll. At all events woman can ralc.u. late two dozen oysters at4 centa [too high price] apiece. Woman has no legal control over man. She is a poor nervous creature?wonderful?tyranny?point with his finger to thirty houses?if woman were independent of man she could not be managed?create separata interests?she is a mere pensioner upon man's bounty?man has the same capacity the same desires?man sells lands and morns multicaulis, speculates, and is allowed a dollar a month. ? Husband and wife are affected by our laws?she owns nothing hut her attire?she is a mere thing? yea a thing: think of that?a thing! I am not a thing!; do I look like any thing? Is woman a crea ture ol reason j trust her and aee; Jet woman act ireo, liar man?let her not be subject to man? ahe ia a alave?a slave to man?I want to free iter from man?we will set up lor ourselves. The present position ot woman is a false one. Man must live up to woman ?I want woman to work out her own salvation; we want our rights; she must redeem herself?(have the goodness to close that door)?1 have no wish to see woman degraded to the condition of politics? it is a low, vulgar, calling, and wa are above it. I ask not to be the President of the United States, although I may be as gaod as the Queen of ' Kngland. We aro dependant on our husbands I for every penny we spend?have not women as good | a right to attend lectures, subscribe for newspapers, j lie., as the men have. Laws are the same all over the world. I have studied the law : the law gives her no re , dress. Is she made for such a lot?a continued crucifix- . ion 7 Is this right 7 Suppose one of us women should commit a fashionable sin, what help ar hope is there far us 7 If man sin there is no one to call him to accountnet so if woman commits a fashionable sin. The iron en ters into her soul, and she feels she is a thing. It is an awful thing for woman to be alone. Whoever is above la bur is good for nothing. Woman is Heaven's last, best gift to man. With stentorian lungs, she cried, " Fisn t . fish t fish!" and man thinks it all right. Man must not usurp authority over us, and we will not usurp authority over man. I will not tread on your toes if you wont on mine. The cure 1 for all the ills that woman is heir to, is a different social or- ' dor?it is association?give us association?we want it?it will cure us, and satisfy all our desires. Now then, 1 i want yon to give something to pay for this room?1 have i got no money myself, and I want those of you that heve, | to pny for the room. Then if yon don't llko what 1 have , aid, I will let you sav It yourselves. Mr. Wright, (if I have his name rightly,) here 1 arose and addressed the remaining twenty present? ' He agreed with Mrs. Gore that woman's position ' is a false one. There tire so tew true marriages; she 1 wants association; man and woman are promiscuously I mixed up in a false and heterogenous state; this ia as- j sociation I grant; I know not if you were to make wo- i man freer than she is now, that she would go it any stronger than she now does. Whenever there is a true j marriage, there is no difficulty. If?yes if?man loves woman, and if woman loves man, then yon will live bliss- I ful and happy lives We go lor association. [Heir a young man arose and said he felt highly gratified with what he had heard; he went for a reform in the cemmon la w system, give her her rights, thegeiitleman last up has expressed my mind exactly,and I shall say no more; give woman her property rights ] On the whole, the meeting was so sleepy and dull that no steam could be go' up, and it accordingly adjourned. Fashionable Morals and Ft .nance in Canada.? Whenever a defalcation, robbery, or absconding lakes place in the United Mates, our Uanadiaa loyal neighbors, from ihe mouth of the St. Lawrence to the Rocky Mountains, immediately turn uj> the whites of their eyes and cry out, "awful slate of morals"?" all caused by democracy"? " terrible dishonesty in the States"?" no country honest but a monarchy"?"praise be to God for our form of government." From the annexed statement, taken from a Toronto paper, it will be seen that human nature is human nature in every country?and that Texas is not only a land of refuge for the rascals of th" United States?but that it furnish- | es a safe asylum lor the rogues from the royal pro vince of Canada, the land of honesty and integrity, ol loyalty and lumber:? [From the Toronto Examiner.] Much excitement has prevailed in thiscity, within the last few days, in consequence ol certain disclosures made by our banks, respecting a considerable amount of forgeries, perpetrated by a merchant lately resident here. He lias availed himself of every artifice, which might bd con. ceiveu, as wen cmcuiaieu 10 lurwaru ui> irmiuuiein projects. Neither the tics of kindred, nor of friendship have been adequate to protect from hu designs. Even that factitious bund of mystic Iraterniiatinn, which we are sometimes told hy the advocates of Kreemasonry has served ns a talisman against the upraised weapon of the Alpine bandit, appears, in this case, to have been viewed merely as a fortunate adjuvant, in working out, with more security , and certainty, his well organized system ot villany. fee- | ve.-al of the victims, are men who have stood hy him in times of severe trial. We are not aware ofthe full extent 1 to which they have been left liable hy the ahsconding in- 1 dividual, as it will probably l>e a matter to he determined I by a legal tribunal, what bills are forgeries, and what are | genuine. It is generally believed the amount of the lor- i mer is not under ?3.000?and there is reason to fear the j lull amount is not yet ascertained. It is also asserted, by | parties who have means of forming a correct opinion, that | Silas Burnham, the absconding person, has carried with , him not less than ?5,000, or even ?6.000 in hard cash, lie left this city on Saturday morning,13th inst.by the steamer f lor Niagara ; and we are informed passed through Bulla- 1 lo. It is probable his destination is Texas. During the I spring, notwithstanding the hardness of the times, we are < informed from an indubitable source, he has effected col- ] lections of his city accounts equal to ?1,600 ; we have | heard that there is not to be discovered an instance in ( w hich he has paid a single sixpence, of any account due by himself; and he has not lett 15 per cent 01 his own accounts uncollected. This is evidence of a digested plan. ' We understand, he realized about ? 1,200 from the proreeds of an auction sale of part of his stock in April, which f he gave his frien fs to believe, was to be appropriated to | the redemption of notes, nast due, lying in the banks, with i their names on them We lielieve not one shilling was | so applied ; though some notes were retired ; but by | others which piove now to be lorgeries. We understand that in one Bank he purchased drafts on Montreal to the amount of ?1,400, with note* which he represented to be the return* ot bis auction sale, but which now appear to ' be in great part lorgerieg We have learned that in the prrsent instance, with I some exceptions, Mr. Burnham found no difficulty in ne. | gotiating paper with one good name, and his own worthies! name. One bank, we hear, sold him ?000 worth of j Exchange, and holds forged paner for the amount? another bank bought this very exchange from him, within ' a few hours, at, no doubt, a compensating shave. A third bank gave him exchange for ?1,400, and holds his forged paper, it is said, for a good part of the sum. To discount paper in the old, ordinary way of business, is found not to answer the purposes of these institutions It daes not make up the required dividends. The adept in bank chicanery Knows how to get along very well. He will not venture to ask for a simple discount j for he knows it would be reluaed; as the hanks have more profitable grist in their mills. Let a solvent, plain fartmr ask for accommodation to the extent of ?100, and though he may be worth twenty times the amount, he would be relused. Let a worthless impostor, well known, perhaps, by the banks, to he ten or filteen thousands pounds worse than nothing, offer them a good name (no matter how proprocured), and state that he will take exchange, at their rate of premium, and he will get whatever he has courage or villany enough to ask for,aye, and so readil) .that even a clumsy forgery will escape detection, in the hurry of so profitable an operation. He may then go to the neigh, boring hank and sell this Exchange at a shave of two or three per cent, or puddle it over the city; or (a? we actually were once informed took place in a bank in Lower Canada,) he may s> 11 it back over the same counter he 1 bought it at. without ever putting on his hat. In fact, we have ypen heard that any kind of civltity, except ordinary civility, may be met with?at least in some of the hynks of Canada.

Late and Interkstinq from the Mormon Empire on the Upper Mississippi.?We have received very late accounts from the new Mormon religious empire, established by Joe Smith, the modern Mahomet?accounts which are very interesting and curious in a people which have attracted the attention ot the public throughout the old and new world?in the Atlantic States, and the continent of Eurojie. Our correspondence is annexed. My these authentic statements it appears that the holy city of the Mormons, called Nauvoo, is increasing more rapidly than ever?and that the recent ell'orts to persecute the prophet, and to disgrace their religion, have only resulted in more popularity ?a fresh increase of converts?and further successes on land and water. New revelations and Iresh predictions are also in the sack, and will soon be out. The new batch ot biass plates will be the (oundatiou of more prophecy, wonder, excitement, and increase. Joe Smith has already demolished Father Miller and the politicians, and is now preparing to issue another book of Mormon, that will wake up the world a second time. We shall wait lor this development, with ?[>en mouth at least. The following is our correspondence from the Holy City, which is quite curious and interesting :? Nauvoo, III., May 7,1843. Ilajtiti Increase of Nauvoo?Progress o/ the Faith- n tul?New Discovert/ of lirmtx Pint**?.Svlendiil . Military Review?Science? Politics. n Dear Bennett :? i The Spring has at last opened, after a long and tl very severe winter, which has brought us into May v before the forest buds and the plains pat on their 1 green mantles ; but lovely May is preparing the * face of Nature with her usual taste ; the feathered warblers begin to chirp their notes of praise, while r the din and bustle of business consequent upon the a rapid improvement of our city, form an aspect at i r once auspicious of its future glory and greatness. i About five hundred emigrants frotn England have arrived this spring, and it is said a number are still f on their way, besides many who are daily arriving in small parties from different parts of the United ' States, all of whom settle in the city or its immcdi- t ate vicinity. Those who have means, buy a lot of land, and build upon it immediately. Mecnanies of all classes are here in abundance, who find sufficient 1 employment to procure a subsistance, but would undoubtedly meet with a greater degree of prosperity if we had some capitalists to commence manufacturing upon a more extensive scale. 1 am surprised that Eastern capitalists do not turn their attention to ^ this point; there can be no better place on the continent of America for the enterprise of those who command capital. Any amount of the best of mechanical labor can be had here at a low price?all ^ the necessary materials for erecting and carrying on manufactures are convenient. Water power can j be had to a great extent with a little expenditure?a navigable stream laving our shore, by which we can , ship our surplus products cheap to ihe South, the North and East, besides the rapid increase of population of this place, is such as to demand the preparation for extensive manufacturing establishments i to supply the demand for home consumption. Facts as they exist, warrant the conclusion that this place 1 in five years, will be the largest city in the West, and if I was predisposed to the marvellous, 1 might carry out the conclusion until I had swept over the , large cities of this continent, and set up a rivalry with those of Europe and Asia. Suffice it to sav, i in view of thisciiy and its founder, that strange thincs have hui.nem d_ and Kfill ihinss more stritnpp 1 may happr n. Another set of plaits have heen found in Pike ' county, in this State ; they were dug out ol a large r mound, fifteen feet from the summit, hy a company of persons, filteen in number, who all affirm to the ^ act of their situation wlien found. There were six 1 n number, about three inches in length, and two tnd a halt broad at one end, and one inch broad at I he other, being something of the form of a hell, lbout the sixteenth of ail inch thick, with a hole in lie small end of each, fastened together with a ring, , ipparantly ol iron or steel, but which was so oxt- c itsed as to crumble to pieces when handled. The lates are evidently brass, and are covered on both tides with hyerogliphics. They were brought up and shown to Joseph Smith He compared them in my i?re6ence with his Egyptian alphabet, which lie took from the plan a Irom which the Book of Mormon was translated,and they are evidently the same characters. He therefore will be able to decipher them. There can be no doubt but tliey are a record of some kind, tuned with an individual, centuries ago ; a skeleton was found with them?some, of the bones in such a state of preservation as to show the size of the individual, whose height must have been eight and a hull leet. You may expect something very remarkably pretty soon. ) eeterday, the sixth of May, was the general parade of the Nauvoo Legion. (Jen. Arlington Bennett was r*|>ected to be here to inspect the i^egton, hut did not appear. The day was windy Hnd cold, but the military spirit predominated, and the ranks were well filled ; they formed and went through the evolutions out ou the Prairie, about two miles Irom the Temple, all in good style,I ex|>ect, (as I was not nut,I am unable to describe.) I had the pleasure ot observing,them when they came in the tow n in the afternoon somewhat fatigued, no doubt, but still resenting a martial appearance. An elegant band nf music in front, the Lieut General, Jo Smith, and staff, next?followed by Major General Wilson Law and staff?then the Cavalry?then the Artillery? hen the Infantry. The officers were well uniformed, and are fine looking men. The private soldiers (most of them) were without uniform, but ire well disciplined, and ready to do good service to their country. I thought as they passed, *' Who would not be a soldier V' The stalls of the two first ranking Generals, were adorned with twelve beautiful ladies mounted on elegant chargers, and if the officers of the Legion could not serve theircountrj n the field gallantly with such aids, then the days ol :hivalry and knight-errantry are certainly over We have a number of visitors here continually, lome wishing to lecture on phrenology, some on lionography, some on neurology aud mesmerism, hulking, I suppose, there is u line field tor then lumhuggery ; but fortunately for the citizens, they J i ommon Council.

IfrsriTfl "I 111 Mayor?The annual message of the ilayor was presented and read and ordered to be printed. I'lie Mayor, in his message, reviews at length, ard in a nostable and argumentative manner, the distinctive du. iesofthe ("ommon Council, ond Ms>oV,and recommends hat all executive business be performed by distinct dolartmentsto be create d by the Common Council in accorlance with the charter, instead of by committees of the wo lioards, as is now tlis practice. He states that the um of $16,611 61 has been paid to members of 'he recent Common Council, contrary 10 the charter, that excludes dl members from participation in work from the Comlion Council. He also recommends the removal of the aw courts to the Alms Housebuilding in the Park; and a oncentration of all the departments of the city govern, nent in the City Hall. That all contracts should be given iiitby advertising for proposals and a clause in each o insure the payment of laborers, who perform the work inder contractors. He recommends the organisation of a lermaneat hoard, consisting of the Mayor,the Presidents t the two Boards, the Comptroller and Counsel tor the Corporation, to be invested with power to deide upon the giving out of all contracts for city lurposes, to which is to be. added the chief of the epartment for which the work is to be done, or the arti. lfs furnished. He also calls the attention of the Common ouncil to the evil of confinement of witnesses in the City 'riion, under the tame rulei and regulation* a* felon*, and lludes to the excitement of last fall relative to the dlsinrrment of bodies in several burying grounds, and recornaends the adoption of some plan to remedy such evils, n allusion to the Police, he recommends the adoption of he plan so often recommended in the Herald, that the ratchmen should take their stations at sundown, and relain until sunrise, and also that the police others be diided into a day watch, to be distributed throughout the ,ily during the day time. He concludes by expressing as lis opinion, that the Common Council have apeifect ight to repeal the street contract, and recommends such course, and that the citizens be compelled to sweep the treets before their own doors, and that the dirt be caried away ny contract. Joint Meeting.?Both Boards having assembled, the olio wing appointments were made :? Daniel E. Delavan and Edward Fitzgerald, were Bpioiuted Ballast Masters. Benjamin W.

A'dermaii Scolks olfi-red a resolution calling for the ipi ointment of a Committee to inquire whether an) perion had hern appointed to ottice who had not a good moal eharacter Assistant Alderman Brown proposed to amend by enluiring into the moral character ol the persons appointed ast year. A debate ensned, in which Alderman Scoles, Tillou, trown, and Wuterman, took part. The resolution and amendments were finally laid on he table, and the Joint Meeting adjourned. The Board of Aldet men resumed business. Twelfth Ward Officers.?The ordinance passed at the lose of the term of the recent members, abolishing the itticesof Dock Master and Health Warden, Superintendint ol Roads, and Street Inspector, was repealed. The Street Contract?Tne same Committee ta whom vas referred the street contract, presented a report, signid by Aldermen Tillou and Waterman, being a majority, n w hich they allege that the contractors have violated heir contract, by not cleaning the public markets, in arsordanco with their contract, or the heads of many of the ;>ublic and ptivata slips and piers. Also, that aside from his, they have power to annul said contract on the ground ;hnt the Common Council have a right to repeal or alter ?ny contract entered into by a previous Common Council. The resolution annexed to the report repeals the ordinance making the contract, and authorizes the Comptroller to refuse further payments to the contractoi s. They also presented an ordinance dividing the city into iiiteen districts, classifying them by the several wards, sxeent the 12th and 16th, which are included together, and which are to be given out to separate contractors who ire qualified, and who make the lowest otr<-r on good ->eeu ity. The giving of said contracts to be invested with the VI ay or and Finance Committee of tioth Boards, and the Comptroller to advertise for pro|>ossl*. Alderman Scons being the minority of thn Law Comnittee, presented a counter report, in which he contends hut the present (Common (Council have no |<ower to reteal said contract, and that the contractors tin mselve. lot being allowed to be present at the investigation of the ommittee, he refused to meet with the committee except it their first consults! ion, and, therefore, disagreed in all heir conclusions.

Mat 3t.?Jotrfh Nullifu vs. Cohin oud Sweet, Police Ojfi<er?.?This it. ?u .ctiuu of ut>?uult and battery. Mr. Afleu opened the cmab lor the prosecution. Krom this opening, and from the testimony of Mr. Charier Wilson, the plaintitf"' cute may be stated u? tollows :?Mr. Mulligan, the pluintill', ii one of the principals in St. Luke's Academy?has been a clergyman of the German persuasion. He hired house. No. 33 Heed street, some 4 years ago. House next door, No. 'JO, is a house 01 ill fame, kept by n woman called Harding or Clark. There had oltrn been much noise and disturbance at this house, to the annoyance of Mr. Mulligan's family. The piesent allair occurred on the night of the 7th ' September, 1843?Mr. Mulligan was in bed?it was about 13 or I o'clock at night. The young man Wilson had baen sick in the night? had been in the yard?was coming in through the entry ?heard the street bell ring?saw Mr. M. coming up stairs, w ho requested W. to open the door Wilson did open the door in his night dress?saw no person on M.'s Etoop, but did see some peison (Coltrin) standing upon adjoining stoop, (Mrs. Clark's)?Wilson told M. that he thought a mistake bad been made, ami the wrong door bell had been rung?Colvin was standing on the stoop of 32, talking with a woman (Mrs. Clark) at that moment a mob of ten or twelve came up opposite Mulligan's door?there was great noise?Mulligan requested thrmto disperse, told them he kept a respectable house, anil would not be disturbed in that manner, but would call the watch. Wilson said it was all Mis. Clark's doings, who was then on the stoop. Mulligan told the woman that he would have her house hrnken nn in ill. I morning. Colvin said he was an officer. Wilson said it was a oretly place for an officer. Mulligan said he didn't believe he was an officer at all. Colvin Threatened to take Mulligan and Wilson both to the watch house, and convincethem that he was on officer. Mulligan went into the house for his cane?Colvin seized hold ot Wilson and held him fast. Colvin called to some person from the mob, whom he named Burt, or some such name?(he turned out to be Sweet)?became, and seized hold of thecano which Mulligan had in his hand, struck Mulligpu several blows on the head, dragged him down from the stoop, and knocked him into the gutter. In the affray, Mulligan got bis leg broken below the knee, both bones, in two places?was very badly hurt?was confined to his house lor 46 days?now walks on crutches, or with a cane. Wilton told tne mob they had tinished Mulligan, awl they then disnersed, supposing Mulligan to .be dead. Colvin aided Wilson to carry Mulligan into the house, when he immediately returned to Mrs Clark's house. Drs. Rogers, Detmold, and Wright were called in to see Mulligan ?he did not attain his consciousness until 6 o'clock in the morning. This house of ill fame had been complained of to Alderman Crolius- Colvin and Sweet did not disperse the mob. Mulligan did not strike any one, although on this point the evidence was conflicting. Colvin did not go for any physician. Such is substantially the case for the plaintiff. Mr. Trice opened the case for the defence. He stated that Colvia and Sweet had been police officers lor some three years?were not at that house on that night for libi. dinous purposes, hut in the discharge of their duty. Mrs. Harding or Clark had resided there sometime?it was her misfortune to be so situated?she had been hut a short time before very severely injured by some person of whom she had complained at the police office?a warrant had been issued, and Colvin; ami,Sweet were then endeavoring to get a description of the person who had assaulted Mrs. Harding. Colvin iu this mob insisted on his pre. serving the peace - Mulligan called him a liar and a scoundrel? strikes him three blows on the back?not a blow wns struck by either of these officers?Mulligan's wounds were the accidental result of the sculfle. F.dward Dennison is the name ofthe man who assaulted Mrs. Harding, and whom Colvin and Sweet were endeavoiing to arrest. Dennison committed an a saiilt on Mrs. Harding, otherwise called Clark, in her own house. Dennison was never found or arrested. James H. Brinnell said he saw Sweet and Colvin standing upon oue side of the stoop and Mulligan and Wilson upon the other?" they were about a leet apart." Lewis Kruder and John D. Totten were among the party who went to No. 22 and tried to get iu ? they were refused admittance, and advised to go away ? i*.i .1:.1 ? ?

Mrs. Harding was herself called and sworn as a witness, and gave her testimony for the defence ; but we do not think it proper to rejiort it. Mr. I'rice summed up on behalf of the defendants, and Mr. Whiting tor the plaintiff. The Judge charged the Jury, recapitulating the leading points ofthe evidence He said if the Jury believed the evidence of Charles Wilson, it was a most outrageous assault and battery,and a high handedottence. Mr. Mulligan has received a lasting injury to his person, great pain, loss of time, &C. Sic. Sw< et seems to be more guilty than Colvin, who did show some feeling ot humanity. Kven if Wilson or Mulligan had insulted Colvin, yet lie hi d no right to strike either of them, or take th< ra to the watehhouse The person of a citizen is sacred, and must not be touched, unless he he in the act of committing an offence. Mrs. Harding's testimony is to be taken with much allowance trom the character she sustains. The Judge charged that the Jury could give just as heavy damages us they chose, although it would be useless to give damages which the defendants could not pay The Jury weie absent about fifteen mtnutrs, and returned a verdict ot $1000 against the defendants. Juan Scot sur vs. The Urooklyn Fire Insurance Co.?In this case the Jury retired, and alt< r consulting for n con siderahle time, could not sgiec, and a verdict was taken by consent of the parties for the plaintiff lor $500, being about the difference between what the company expended in repairing the house, and the amount ol loss claimed by the plaintiff.

The laws," says Home Tooke, " are open to the rich as well as the i>oor, and so is the London Tavern;" but the poor man, tor all, practical purposes, finds hiUClf excluded Irom both. This has been strikingly illustrated by an able writer in the last number of the Law Magazine, who, in reference to the comparative expense of the remedy ot divorce in England and Gotland furnishes the following astounding facts, of the accuracy of which we believe there can be no doubt. After observing that the costs sf obtaining a divorce are at present so heavy that none but a wealthy man can think of this description of relief, lie adds? " The expenses actually incurred last session in prosecuting Mr. Milford's divorce, were as follow :? Coiti of action, JC10I It 6 Proceedings in Doctors' Commons, 2S3 14 0 Parliamentary coats, 537 1 7 8 ?083 3 1 " In that case bo particular opposition was thrown in the way of the petitioner, and his expenses were lessened ny some personal friend getting up and managing the evidence The average cost of an ordinary divorce ranges Irom ?1,000 to ?1,500, and, if difficulties occur, the amount is much larger. It i* well known that Lord Ellenborough's cost nearly ?5,000." The contrast between the exj ernes of a divorce in England and Scotland, is thus strikingly stated i? " The average expense ol disannulling a marriage in the Court ot Session Jis about ?110; and we haw been Hssnred by a Hcotch practitioner, of great experience in proceedings ot this nature, that he has lately carried ih ouch four iinI tigated divorces, in ..I ...i,i/.i. ,I;.I ,?... A*-?O . ..n.i one,the entire sum ppmt was ?15 17* 6) The remedy is thus plat ed within the reach of every on*, who is not actually a pauper; and the resulting benefit cannoi he better ascertained than by observing the class of persons in whose favor divorces are actually grantee. In ? list (forming ?? appendix to this article) of all the decrees ot divorce pronounced in the Court ' ( ?rs*ina (rem November, 182H, to November, 1841, we find fourservants, four laborers, two soldiers, one Bailor, nud every variety of small shopkeepers. In short, out ot ih<- ninetyfive divorcee which were granted in Scoiland dur idg that period, there are certainly not more than six that could by possibility have been obtained in England."
