One of the most interesting events. daring tlie past
year, has 1"en the establishment of a workshop in couiireticii
with this institution The object of this establishment
>s to place within reach of the industrious
blind of both sexes, the means of earning their own
support, and. at the same time, to furnish, to such as
may desire it, a comfortable home. It lias been ubuudauii)
Ueuiourtrated, by the experience of ail institution
similar to this, that, as a means of support, mechanical
pursuits of some kind afford the surest reliance
Hut such pursuits cannot be successfully prosecuted
by the blind, against the competition of the seeing
w ithout the aid of the same appliuuces which contribute
to the profits of their more favored competitors.
These are the advantages of associated labor, of capital.
and. in addition, of a workshop furnished witli tools
and lixtures adapted to tlie peculiar wants of the blind.
These facilities it is designed to afford in the eslabiish?....!

The system of education, as pursued at this institution,
is threefold. embracing (except the classics), the
ordinary branches pursued in our schools and academies;
such an attention to music, both vocal and instruninntal.
as shall enable those oi sufllcicnt talent to
rely upon it. to some extent, us a means of future
upport. and the acquisition of a trade. The school or
literary department is conducted by a principal male
and a female teacher, aud two assistant teachers, liulf
the pupils attend school in the morning, and the other
half in tlie afternoon, and each school session is divided
into fuur recitations of three-quarters of an hour each.
About twenty-five pupils constitute a class. At the
close of each exercise, the pupil changes his room and
teacher, and. in the middle of each session, an inter
mission ol' ten or fifteen minutes is allowed. In the
evening, all the pupils assemble in the chapel for one
hour, to listen to miscellaneous reading. In the acquisition
of knowledgo by the blind, uud the development
of their intellectual faculties, the senses of feeling
and hearing are substituted for the sense of sight I
In imparting instructions to ihcm.tlio oral system, which
in many respects possesses advantages, is mainly pursued.
'1 he want of books lias hitherto made it necessury
^ to adopt this method in some branches where the use
of text hooks would no doubt have tended to accelerate
the progress of the pupil In arithmetic especially
this want has been felt, and it is believed the publication
of a work on this subject in raised letters, now
nearly completed, will be found materially to lighten
the labors of the teacher. Books in raised letters
which arc rend by the blind with their fingers ; maps
with the principal features of the various divisions of
the globe in relief; cyphering frames with movable
types or characters for arithmetic anil algebra ; geometrical
diagrams in raised linos, fcc., constitute the
Lief appliances that are peculinr to the instruction
of the blind. By the aid of these, with the increased
powers of attention, perception and memory which the
blind possess, they are enabled to make attainments in
knowledge, which at first would seem impossible, but
which were abundantly demonstrated to be quite I
practicable at the exhibition of yesterday, und of them
we will now speak as lully as our limited space will
W bile the audience were assembling, a voluulary on
the organ was executed in fine style, by Mr. Kdwund
Kaniskl. a pupil. Then came an introduction by the
hand, consisting of pupils; and an excellent introduction
it was A prayer, a few remarks by one of the
officers, and an anthem. ''Blessed b? the Lord," sung

degree satisfactory. Miss Cynthia Bulloch, a vory interesting
young lady, one of the pupils, delivered a
poetic address of great merit.
Altogether, the exhibition was singularly pleasing

American Home Missionary Society.
The twenty-third anniversary ol litis Society took
place at the Broadway Tabernacle, lust evening. The
meeting was announced for half-past seven o'clockand
long before that time had arrived, a large number
of ladies and gentlemen had taken seats in the house,
and when the time nrrived for the commencement of
the exercises, the whole house was filled, with the exception
of a few seats under the galleries; and even
these were, for the most part, filled a short time afterwards.

?there is a balance in the treasury of $3 849 00. Tho
receipts of the year exceed those of the last by
$6,728 81. The number of missionaries is thirteen
greater Sixty-three congregations more have been
bleared with the preaching of the Gospel; 530 more
Sdird to Ibt churches; and B.500 more instructed in
8abbath schools. The society lias now two missionaries
in Oregon, and ttro in California. During the
last ten years, the advance on the receipts li.vs

of missionaries lias increased, from 665 to 1.019.
An abstract oftlie report of the executive committee
was next presented by the Rev. Milton Badger, D. D?

Concerning this missionary work, ho said, the parent

means possessed now, in comparison with the facilities
which I'nul had, iu his time, for multiplying and promulgating
copies of such works as it was desirable to
disti ihute abroad in the great apostle's day. The
tardy work of transcribing, in the first place, and the
limited means of conveyance, in the next, were
happily rompared liy the reverend gentleman
with tire steam printing and steam travelling
of tho present duy. The mode pursued by this
society Is the cheapest mode of evangelizing the
West. The expense of tho home missionaries in
the West will not average more than $106 each.
Ihif year they have averaged $17S. hut that was in
consequence of the increased amount necessarily
expended in litting out and sending missionaries to
California. The speaker alluded, Iu uu eloquent and
elegant manner, to tho Westward progress of Christianity
ever since the days of Paul?first to Italy, then
to Spain, and to England and Atlantic America, thence
to the Pacific coast. The speaker was applauded at the
close of his remurks.
Next came another anthem, ' When the Lord shull
build lip Zion." by the choir.
The following resolution was offered by Rev. R. S.
Stoiirs. Jr.. of Brooklyn :?

Mr. Stohks spoke witli great ardor to this resolution,
and when hu had concluded, lie received threo distinct
rounds of applause.

Resolved, That the sublimity of the missionary work,
at the present time, especially in our own lend, should
inspire the people of Ou t with greater faith aud selfdevotion
tor its advancement.
Mr. Si n.i'.s spoke to this resolution in some remarks
which were not only appropriate, but. extremely happy
in tlieir adaptation to the subject. At the close of his
speech, the congregation joined the choir in singing
three verses of the hymn commencing with?
" /ion?thrice happy place?
Adorned with wondrous grace."
A benediction was then pronounced, and the vast assemblage
left the Tabernacle.

mill which hud shaken the nations; unil argued that
tlie present time presented high hopes for the conver(ion
mid evangelization of the Jews. They had been
before laboring under great prejudices, from the illtreatment
they had received from Christians: but now
those prejudices were fast being removed, by the liberty
and freedom extended to them, as a result of the late
political agitations and revolutions. These revolutions.
which opened the doors of freedom to the Jews,
also thereby tended to remove their prejudices. Mr.
5 also observed that uuothcr element, which was favorably
operating towards the prospect of the evangelization
of the Jews, was the universal dissatisfaction which
now prevailed among them against Judaism and the
traditions of the Talmud generally. They had become
quite dissatisfied, and convinced that it was vain for
thimto look for a Messiah to come, such as the Talmudists
represented to tliem?a mere human being, like
Moses or some other great man. Mr. S. concluded an
able nnd eloquent address by a powerful appeal to the
meeting on the behalf of the society and the objects
which it is intended to promote.
1 he Chairman then introduced Mr. Thomi-aon to the
meeting, a preacher of this city, who proceeded to address
the assembly upon the interesting subject before
them. Mr. Thompson first spoke of the prejudices enti
rtaiuej aguinst tho Jews, derived from reading about
them in improper sources, as Fugans. Shylocks. Isaacs,
and other trading characters, instead of reading and
r<mt'jnbering what they were, us represented in tliu
Bible. Mr. X. then adverted to the question of the
prophecies. He did not think It necessary that Christian*
should think alike upon these matters. Yet ho
thought it necessary that they should all work and act
in concert to promote tlie welfare, the happiuets. and
the evangelization of the Jews. Mr. T. then elaborately
pointed out the way and manlier in whicli
it ought tube proceeded witii to work this conversion.
In the lace of the prejudice and opposition to be encountered
Mr. T. having concluded an able and interesting
address, the chairman introduced Dr. Itacon,
)t New Haven, who proceeded to address the assembly.
Dr. Usees, after a brief apology for the state of nonircpartion.
in which, from the suddenness of his being
ailed upon, he stood before them, then entered into n
rv interesting disquisition upon the singular phenoneuon
of the uninterrupted and ever preserved nntionility
ot the Jewish people. This is a visible miracle,
jot to he denied, but daily before the eyes of all the
lorld and in all parts oi the world. It lias happened
0 no other people who ever existed. Where are the
lcseenduiits of Nimrid ' Where tire the nations and
dngdouis which sprung from himund his descendants ?
Where Hrc the Assyrians? Where are the Babylonians?
Where are the Ffyptian* ? Where are the
Gieeks and Unmans ? None of these ancient people
have preserved their national existeneeand nationality
like the Jews. From all this, Dr. 1! said it was assuredly
to be gathered and concluded, that God. who
bad thus wonderfully preserved the Jewish people, purposed
still by lliein to accomplish a woadertul work,
ml to make his power and his grace known by them
hrougliout the world. Dr. it then proceeded to show,
n h highly interesting manner, the present position
Hid situation of the Jews, in reference to tludr
iiitll and doctrine. If they followed the doctrifle
1 the Bible, even of the Old Testament alone,
here would be no fear of their not being converted to
be faith of ( lirist ; but tin y neither follow nor give
iir to the Word of God; they are led by traditions,
ml aie consequently plunged in ignorance and supertition.
In this respect, they are to the Old 'l'o-tanent
an exact counterpart of what the Honian
at holies are ts the New Testament. The Koriiantsts
leilher followed nor gave ear to the Word of God but
bey are enslaved by traditions Thus, witii both of
In in. tliey arc both equally hostile to the truth, bounce
they equally are hostile to the Word of God, and
rllow the traditions of men.
Dr Bacon proceeded further to enlarge upon this incresting
topic. In a happy manner; when, having conluded.

Observations on Prospective Cases.
In the two official papers there is a formidable
catalogue of appointments promulgated to-duy.
Mr. Kwing has made a bold demonstration, cspe.
cially among the poor locofoco land registers and
receivers of the " Rackensack." The outside
State of Arkansas has had the benefit of every
other reasonable expedient for her political eonversion,
.without avail. The Smithsonian fund
wus lent to her, all in British gold, and though
that act was done by the democracy, the whigs
hoped it would enuble her banks to enlighten the
people, but it failed; and the State of Arkansas
has never even paid up the interest on these bonds.
(Md Tip's nomination, and old Zaek's nomination,
failed to shake her. Still she has been democratic
outright and Hat-footed. Mr. Kwing
thinks he has discovered the secret, the open sesame,
that is to redeem Arkansas. He thinks it is
in the sinews ot war; and he sets to work to purge
out locofocoiem irom the Rackensack. bv weed
ing out those obnoxious heretics from the land offices.
It will give the whigs a foothold in the
State, and encourage them to work like trenchdiggers
ut the next election. The soothing system
failed in Virginia, and severe purging, according
to the diagnosis of Dr. Brand retli, is to be tried
with Arkansas. We are afraid, however, she is
too far gone lor recovery, though it will be delightful
to the whig missionaries of that region to taste
those precious drops of the oil of consolation from
the horn of plenty, vouchsafed from the home department?And
who's afraid? Father Ritchie has
been taunting the organs, that in publishing the appointments,
they don't publish the removals; and
just to please the padre, they came out this morning
after tiic following fashion:?
"William E.Powell, of Arkansas, to be Register
of the Eand office at (Jhairipngaole, Arkansas,
in the place of Ifirum Smith, removed."
Now, whether Mr. Smith, and the rest of the list
removed, were whigs or democrats, we leave to
Father Kitchie to discover. We suppose that Mr.
Ewing is pretty well satisfied upon that point.
As far as can be determined from this column
of appointments, it is manifest that a pretty thoroughcleansing
of the pubjic offices over the Union
of their democratic materials, is to be the policy
of the administration?that it is to throw itself iq>oii
the whig party for support, und that the extraneous
elements of ull other parlies uniting with
tile whigs in the election of '-If, are to be cast aside,
or, in oilier words, the whig party proper, and exclusively,
is to be relied upon as the only reliable
suppoi t of iM administration.
litis decision, however, is not yet definitely pronounced
or understood. Gen. Taylor, on the contrary,
is understood to be standing in opposition,
from day to day, in his cabinet, to an ultra policy
of rotation. The list of appointments expected tomorrow,
may throw some further light upon it.
lion. George P. Marsh is a candidate for the
mission to Rerlin, in the place of Mr. llannegan,
who is to return 111 a month or two, making the
trip, we stimiose, merely to pocket the outfit of
?y,(;00 and tne inlit of $4,fi()0. If the administration
lias consented to uny accommodation of this
sort, (and our information is from u good whig
' office-seeker,) we should like to know why, ana
upon what authority or excuse. Our own impression
is, that there was no understanding on
the subject. The whigs of the Senate ratified
Mr. Unnncgun's nomination?the cabinet and
General Taylor could not get over it. They
were compelled, in deference to the whigs of the
Senate, to say nothing of the democrats, to concur,
and send Mr. llannegan on his mission. Hut
as the whole list of our Ministers abroad is to be
overhauled in Itinc, or about the first of duly, Mr.
llannegan may reasonably expect to be superseded,
without interfering in the mum object of Mr. Polk
in the nomination, of affording him the means of
replenishing his exhausted finances. In this important
view, his recall will he a positive advantage
to him, giving him the fullest benefits of his
perquisites, without exhausting them to any serious
degree by detention at a foreign court.
The long protracted agonv over the New York
and Philadelphia coliectorsbips is expected to be
closed to-morrow, by a cltciee from the candidates
for each port. Hugh Maxwell is confidently and
confidentially rejiorted to be the man for New
York : and Sken Smith is said to have had a qost
of heavy competitors at work, to-day, against him.
When these cases are disposed of, the residuum
will be a work of easy accomplishment. W.

The Special Court of Oyer and Terminer fur tlu
Trial of Dr. Hardtnbrook?Application for his
Final Discharge?The Trial put over for the
Next Term?The Prisoner in Court, fyc.y tfc.
As I wrote you this morning, that the long contented
trial of Dr. John K. Ilardenbrook was about
to come off this afternoon, long before the hour
arrived, the court-house was quite crowded with
spectators, and a large number of jurors that had
been summoned to attend this "special term."
About [half-past 2 o'clock, Judge Wells and his
associates, together with the counsel upon both
sides, arrived. The court was then organized, and
Col. Charles, the crier of the court, then proceeded
to calj the names of the grand and petit jurors, and
out of sixty that had been summoned to appear,
about forty of them answered to their names;
when the District Attorney arose and addressed the
court, saying that, in consequence of the short notice
that lie had received of this special term, some
informality had occurred in his preparation for the
trial, and also, that un important witness was out
of the State, and he could not safely proceed to
triul at this term. After which, the judge discharged
the jury from any further attendance at
this court. The Judge then asked the District Attorney
whether any more business was ready to
come before the court, when his Honor was told
there wus; and some five or six prisoners were
arraigned, that had recently been indicted, which
was soon disposed of, by bail having been given for
their appearance at the next regular term of this
county. A number of witnesses for the prosecution
were now in attendance, und called upon by
M? Bishop, to enter into their own recognizances,
to the amount of $300 each, for their appearance at
the next court; which was soon done.
Mr. Seldon, one of the counsel for Dr. Ilardenbrook,
here arose, and occupied the attention of
the court by reading a long affidavit, sworn to by
the Doctor, which asked for the final discharge of
the prisoner, or that he should be admitted to put
in bail for his appearance at the next regular term
of the court. The reading of this affidavit was
followed by many able remarks of Mr. Seldon, giving
His grounds tor the application for the Doctor's
discharge. (At this point of the proceedings the
court-house became very much crowded with
spectators, which created some considerable noise,
but order was soon restored.) For one of his principal
grounds for the discharge, he quoted the following
section f rom the second volume of the Revised
Statutes, section 2f>, page 737:?
" If any prisoner indicted f or any oflenee not
triable in a Court of General Sessions, but which
may be tried in a Court of Oyer and Terminer, and
committed to orison, whoso trial shall not have
been postponed at his instance, shall not be brought
to trial before the end of the next Court of Oyer
and Terminer, which shall be held in the county
in which he is imprisoned, after such indictment
found, he shall be entitled to lie discharged, so far
us relates to the offence for which he was committed."
After the above section was read, Mr. S. then
strongly alluded to the health of Dr. llardenbrook
becoming quite impaired by his being kept so long
in close confinement.
lie was replied to by the District Attorney, who
urged that the court would not liberate him.
as the tirr.e in which the regular term would
come on was so short, and that the charge against
liim was one of the highest offences, and a
charge upon which a man should be held till such
time us he could be fairly tried.
Mr. Seldon arose again, and brought forward
many other grounds upon which lie asked the discharge
of the prisoner.
lie was then followed by II. G. Wheaton, the
acting Attorney General, who made quite a
lengthy and able speech to the court, in which he
discussed many of the points which Mr. .Seldon
had alluded to, and gave an illustration of them
wliu tliP nrmmiPl* slwtiilil nut h* t\nrt*t\ from
Alter the conclusion of Mr. Wheaton's speech,
Mr. II. K. Smith, the late Postmaster of Buflalo,
(who has recently been engaged on the part of the
prisoner,) arose and proceeded to deliver the iinal
address to the court upon this question. lie was
listened to with profound silence by all that were
injihc court-house; his speech was an eloquent
one, nnd'ofstich a nature that it apparently appeared
to have an effect upon the J udge and his associates.
After Mr. Smith had concluded, the court gave
their decision, that they did not deem the case one
that they could either discharge or admit the prisoner
to buil, and,that the time being only two weeks,
they thought it best to have the prisoner remain in
custody; and he was remanded to jail to await the
sitting of the next Oyer and Terminer, which will
commence on the third Monday of this month. The
District Attorney then gave notice that he would
take it up on the first Wednesday of that week.
During the above proceedings, Dr. Ilardcnbrook
was brought from the jail to the court-house, in
custody of an officer, and took his seat beside his
counsel. He appears to have borne his troubles with
great fortitude, and his appearance has not in the
east changed since I saw him upon the examinaion
before Justice Moore, only that lie appears as
hough he had grieved considerably ; he has now
been in close confinement about ten weeks, and
bus over two more long weeks to so remuin before
he can have his trial,
The public feeling and sympathy since his examination,
appears to have divided a good deal,
and many of the people of Western New York
have now made up their minds that he is an innocent
and injured man ; but a short time will soon
tell the story.
1 have understood that several witnesses on
the part of the people will be brought up at
the trial who were not upon the examination.
The trial will create an excitement in your city, as
well as here, in consequence of the Doctor being
an old resident of New York. C.
Fiiom Tkxas.?We have received our files of
Texas papers to a very late date. The Houston
papers state that myriads of beetles, about an
inch in length, have appeared in the oak uplands of
( hum s, Montgomery, Walker and Dcona counties.
They feed on the foliage of the forests, and
as yet have done no injury to the crops. The frost
has caused great injury in Texas. The corn in
many places is blackened, and a large portion of
it destroyed. The planters have commenced replanting
all their fields that have been injured.
Much sickness prevails along the routes at the
West taken by California emigrants. The Telefrmh
SHVS!?"Mr. (lf.Hn en of thin eitv. wlin wim
engaged as an agent of Messrs. Brown and Tarbox,
lately died at or near Austin, and Mr. Chapman,
erie of the stage-drivers, has also died on the
rond to Bexar, of a disease resembling cholera.
The prspongers who have arrived front the west,
report thr.t several eases of the cholera have occurred
at Austin, Bexar, Independence and New
Brunfels, and the disease is remarkably virulent.
Several eases have also occurred among the troops
it Loredo. The disease in Bexar appenrs to have
created unite a panic among the Mexicans, owing,
probably, to the recollection that it was remarkably
virulent there when the epidemic prevailed
throughout the Southern States in 1833." The
Texas papers object to the selection made by the
V'nr Department of the line of the Presidio del
Rio Grande, as a point of connection for military
posts, instead of the Presidio del Norte, as being
too near the present settlements.
Later.?By the steamship Fanny, which arrived
ast evening, ve received Idea of Galveston papers
jp to the 27th tilt., and from Corpus Christi as late
is the 21st. From them we take the following
tt tns?
The Corpus Christi Star says that Col. Hardee,
ivho with two companies of the 2d I tragoons, arrived
at San Antonio, on the 2d inst., from Rio
Jrande City, via Laredo, lost some eighteen or
wenty of his command on the road by cholera.
The Victoria Advocate, of the 13th inst., says
lint on the 23d ult., a party of Indians came into
he neighborhood of Segnin, and stole from the
amis of' R. 1J. Thomson, J. A. Johnson and Judge
A. Harris, some forty head of horses.
Indian murders have occurred near Mier and at
L'lay Duvis's place.?N. O. Bulletin, May 1.
Indian Depredations on run Rio Grande.?
By the last accounts from Texas it appears that the
Indians on the Rio Grande frontier are becoming
very troublesome to both the Americans and Mexicans
in their neighborhood. Not only is the
United States government hound to protect its own
citizens who live on the confines of the Indian
territory, but it lias also assumed, by the recent
treaty d < >uadulugc, to protect, to a certain extent,
the Mexicans, who have hitherto been the greatest
sufferers licm the incursions of the Camanchcs,
the I.ipans, and the Apaches. Having, then, under
its care tirui protection all the inhabitants, American
arid Mexican, that dwell in the valley of the
Rio Grande, the United States should provide a
lorcc sufficient to repel the inroads of the wild,
fie ice tribes which hang about that region, and
keep 'he whites in n stri.tr* of constant anxiety for
their property and families. So far, a very small
force has been provided for this frontier, and the
htile force there is composed almost entirely of
infi ntty. The Indians tire mounted, well equipped
with nrine, and singularly bold and daring in their
ritaeks. Hence the necessity forcavnlry, not only
to keep t fie Indians off from the white settlements,
ait to I olio w the savages into their own villages, and
tt acli tli ' in to fear as well as to hate the pale faces. I
Ihe Indians on our present frontier are, we
inagine, the last that our government will be
trailed on to subdue and conquer. Hitherto our
roidcts have been constantly enlarging, and the
ine of frontier defence has consequently neejneoninually
extending; but hereafter, any acquisition
>f territory on the j>art of the United f*tate#will
diminish rather than increase the extent of our
boundary lines, But the tribes that at present
wander about the Kio Grande, as well as the
quieter tribes which dwell between the head waters
of the Del Norte aud the Pacific, must share
the fate of the Atluntic and Mississippi tribes. We
are afraid, however, that there will be considerable
difficulty with the tribes of Western Texas. There
is clearly but one course for the government to pursue
; and the more vigorously the policy is carried
out, the less ex|>ensive it will be for us, and the
less cruel will it he for the Indians. It is evidently
vain for us to try to conciliate these tribes. They
mistake the spirit of conciliation for fear, and have
no idea of power softened and controlled by mercy.
Hence we have no resource left hut to carrv oil
hostilit'ee against them so vigorously as to completely
cripple them and take away Ironi tliem the
power, if not the will, of harming.?New Orleans
Crescent, April 27.
Mctiny and"Assault at Ska.?The ship Equity,
Cupt. Nayson, from Liverpool, arrived here on Saturday
night lust, having the steward, a free colored
man named William Thompson, in irons, charged
with un assault on ( "apt. Nayson, with intent to
kill him, while on the voyage. We learned that
the Cantuin missed a considerable sum of money
some days after leaving Liverpool, and knowing
that no one but the steward had access to his
draws, he one day asked about it. The negro at
once assumed a very impudent tone and used very
impudent language, when the Captain slapped his
lace. The scoundrel uttacked him with the fury
of a tiger, and had not the mate fortunately heard
the noise occasioned by the scuffle and rushed into
the cabin, it is thought he would have killed
DUD. The Captain neglected to deliver up the
accused on his arrival on Saturday night, but
jhought he would postpone it until Monday morning.
On Sunday night some person on board the
ship knocked ofV his irons|and allowed hint to escape.
It is expected, however, that he will be arrested.?New

WHALrsiiip Lauoda?The reported loss of this ship, with
the master and first officer, is contradicted in letters froir
Cun'on, of 1 el> 21, which Htate farther that the sailors at Ja- ^b
pan wi re deserters. So thai the supposition at New Bedford ^b
that the report was fabricated by a renegade boat's crew ^fl
proves correct. The men who put the story in oirealation, ^b
with the'inteiition of attracting assistance were likely to re- I
main for sometime prisoners in Japan, as the U S sloop-of- ^fl
war Preble which had started from China to reli v? theia, ^b
had returned in consequence of thu small pox breaking out
onboard. Their falsehood, which ha" caused so muoli jiain- ^b
ful anxiety ut home, will not, thertfore, be prolactiveof
much benetit to theuisclvus. ib
