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,

*r? bove'i Meeting ImI evening, ?t Teml?eriiiit-e
Hull?Twenty*?"? pereoiie pre?"
?nl, Men end Women.
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. This remark, we have often heard

more rapidly than ever?and that the recent

are also in the sack, and will soon be out.

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

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.

Daniel E. Delavan and Edward Fitzgerald, were Bpioiuted

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

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

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. He sustained his report by a few renarks,
and was replied to by
Alderman Tillou, who took the additional position that
he health of the city was so dependent on the cleanliness
>t the streets, that the Common Council (had no power to
lis|>ose of their jurisdiction over this im|>ortant branch

itrcet contract, and therefore the repeal of the contract
voubl be justified, even if it had not been violated by the
tontractors, as is alleged by the committee.

arguments against the street contract at length.

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 ?

to teach music to Mrs. Harding's young lomale hoarders,
although Mr. Kinder is n musician.
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.

this case the Jury retired, and alt< r consulting for n con

Comparative Expenses of Divorce in England
and Scotland.?" 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

REMARKABLE CURK?Ei.izsbkthtowis, N.J, Feb.
30. 1943?Aliouttwo months ago I w as seized with a violent
cold, accompanied by a racking cough, which soon
caused raising of blaod. I tried various remedies, hut ?
none did any good; but, on the contrary, my cough in- $
creased, and it was leared i? would result in consumption.
By accident, Dr. Wistar's Family Medical Guide met my
eye, which recommended B.ilsnm of Wild Cherry. I purchased
a bottle, used it, and in ono week I ceased raising
blood, my cough entirely disappeared, and my health
was completely restored, enabling me to attend to my
business as usual. JAMES W. WOODRUFF.
