i bao'srsf of tte 1ms t importance wan perfeotei la
t brancL of the Leginlature this morning. A num
if p? fionH were reoeived, and rotlcen given or inten
I to L roduci bills. During the early part ef the
in of tc- S inate Mr. A. B. Dickinson arose with the
of jester xj in his hand, and referred to a card ap
P*?g there! i. eijned by a Mr. Glen, den; log the state
tmade by ? juator D. a day or twoMuot, alleging that
(Gj?c>) haa been the purchaser of a quantity of
s belonging to the common school fand. The
itot admitted the tiath of the card, and was
^seeding to address the Senate, when the Presl
i of the Senate remark*? that the Senator was oat of
r, as there was no qu-itlon before the S.?iate. Mr.
ioson thereupon took bin seat, but immediately arose
n, demanded his right to speak up in a question of
rilege, bat deollned stating on what ground he claimed
t |right The presiding officer, Lisat. Got. Chute i,
lerstanding that the Senator doslrel to speak to a
Bstion cf privilege, or which the above card formed the
Is, decided tie Benator to be out of order, on the
und that tbere fai- nothing ooutalned ia the card up .n
ich a breach of privilege could be founded. Mr D.
Esaled from this decision, when a protracted debate en
I, from which it appeared that there was evidently
^understanding between the Senator and the ohair.
tral Senators deMred Mr. D. to give the foundation
_ which he c'almed the floor; but he declined, by
Jirely stating that he arose to a qiestkn of privilege,
bally he withdrew his appeal, and then again raised the
fce quettlon, and referred to the editorial remark* in
? paper. After speaking time Ave minutes, in denounc
j that paper, and (lie late State officers in pquau iering|the
mmon School fund, he closed his remarks, and the mat
? dropped. It was generally conceded that ttte 1'real
nt or the Senate was correct In his ecnstr ucilon of the

At twi We o'clock the Senate went into executive sea
>n with open doors, the large whig majority knowing
at the qualifications and character of nu whi< nominee
juli be brought under review. The (Jourtur trans
Itted the names of several persons nominated as note
's, and a few loan com ai.. doners, located in various
,?ts of the State. The nominations were referred to the
veral appropriate committees, but none will be sonflrm
l which are of the lnait political importance. His Bx
llency sent ia no communication in relation to the New
ork Harbormasters, a subjeot whish annoyed the late
aat>T Cooley continually, or periodically, as the <xecu

It Is held by the accounting officer of the government
that tbe 15?h aection, act of July 6, 18S8, entitles every
onm missioned oflieer to lecetve one additional ration for
every Ave years he may have served, or shall serve, as
Hucb ? that Is, as a commissioned oflioer in the army.
There is nothing In tbe I*w that requires the service to
nave been e<m?eoiitive ,aod in making Tp the aggregate of
servi ?? of any officer he.is entitled to tne boreflt ef all
tbe time he may have served as a commissioned officer in
the army. But service in the marine MM cannot be
counted as service In tbe army in computing longtvi.y
ratiors in case of an oflioer's tran -for, nor can service in
the army be considered in coup . tin* the air wanes of a
marice officer transferred fr?m the srmy. The provision
in regard to longevity rations appJet to tbe marine orps,
by virtue of the 6tb section, act of June 38, 1834, plaoing
officers of the marine corps on the asms footing, as to
ecnoiuments. 4 c , wiih officers of ainilar grades in the

Alter the jury bid b?eu sworn they riewed the body
of deceased, and w we then oondncted to a room
occupied aa an armory by acmjpany if the Jfatienil
Guard, situated In the bHilding di wotly orer the d?ctor s
offices. At abont 11 o'clock quite a number of persons
had colleoUd la and abort the room ("eHgnated for the
holding of the Inquert, and many wete the resarks mad*
front one to the other iueiJeot, oa euoh oootdious, botb
for and again) t the parties accused. The two prbioners
were brought into the room In the custojy of polios
men Mrs. Ha*n wa* requested to reaain Beated apart
from her husband and tbc policemen, informed by the
coroner not to permit theai to converse together. Mri
Hays was not arrested until -tieiiday evening, and that
w?s ^y the polioe at Partem, as she came from the cir <
to go to her residence; but pi ior to li?r returning home
she had visited tlie Tombs and procured an interview
ulth ber husband. Her appetranse yesterday during
tbo investigaticn was of a very mild and 'composed
nature, ani evidently indicated the use of a nar
cotic, and, from the general aspect of the woman,
we thcuU cay she it In the habit of taking
tuch e'esea, which is possibly a part of the medical
treatment she has of late been i?comn ended to in
dulge In. Her personal appear&noe Is not favorable;
she m oi omall stature, rather ilesliy than ctherwlae, sal
low oo?f>xien, note rather long and somewhat elevated
at the ead, >ery dark htir and dark eyes, the latter par
taking of a dim, heavy look, prod aced evidently by the
use of narcotic drugs. She oannot be oalled homely by any
means, nor can she be denlgnated pretty, but wil'
pasn very wall for something between'the two? she may
be called a good locking woman, and under more favor -
ablo auspices, no doubt ber whole frame would exhibit a
mere pleading appearance. Her age must be aboui
twenty-eight or thirty yea' a. We understand she is a
native of lrelutd.
William Haya la alio a native of Ireland, of small sta

kind of nonchalance to asiamed, we ore unable to say.

woman, of (lorid complexion, and vary pleasing counte
nance. She gave ber evidence In a very clear wanner,

UifR *hlpman, the tecocd witness examined, is a very
remarkable looking woman, possessing, however, eon
tidtiibie intellect? much more no than anticipated|from
her appearance. She gave her testimony very well, only
the sad afiliction of deafness rendered it wore dllliouli
for the Coroner to make her iuiJ?rstand the queutions.
The following is the
Mary Lu'.aner, sworn, nay? ? My husband wan a native of
Durham, England, aged thirty one years of aje, and re

was a good understanding between them us til three
weeks ago. my husband came to Hays' house one even
leg, aid Mrs. liayi waa sick; I had been there all day;
Mrs Hays had fallen out of the oar and injured her knee;
the doctor came to see me home, and bronght some medi
cine for her; the doctor and Mr. Hays played dominoes
one evening, and a dispute arose about the game, and it
ended by th'owing op tiie dominoes, and we then went
home; afterwards we went back to Hayi' house, and Mr*.
Hays wa? running a lout the room from one to the other,
threatening to take poison; my husband tried to make
peace all be could, and Mr. Bija laid he would call and
see us the next morning, but he did not do so; Mr Hays
went out at 8 o'clock, but the Doctor did not leave until
10 o'clock; after Hays left home Mrs. Hays sent her ser
vant gitl round to the Doctor, eayleg Blxe wanted to ree
him Immediately; tbe D>ctor went over, and Mrs. Hays
and tbe Doctor returned back to our house together; the
Hist words Mrs. Hays tiaid were "I'm going to leave;*' the
I>cetor wiihed her to stay until her husband returned ;
Mrs. Hays would not remain, but went to the eity
with the Doctor, and returned that evening to our
house, and went to the city again the following
moin'ng with the Docter; she remained lnonr house about
a week altogether; during this time Mr Hays called onoe
at our house; he knooked at the door, saw his wife, and
asked her to go hoEe, and she replied she would not.
(Witness here handed some written papers to the Ooroner
left by Mr. Haye for his wife. ) He then left, and I did
not eee him again until after she left, on Sunday last, be
tween 4 and 6 o'clock; on Sunday evening, as the Doctor
returned from the city, Hays met him at th9 cars, tapped
him on tbe arm, and said, 1 Have you seen my wifet" tbe
Doctor roplied he had cot; yes you have, said Hays, and
began to quarrel, and threatened the life of the Dr. ; I did
not see this, but the Doctor told me so; at about fifteen
it in at et after the Doc '.or arrived home Mr. Hays came to
tbe houne; I asked him what he wanted; he sail, "Is
Mrs. Hays there ?" I replie I ' 'No, I told you so onoe be
fore;'1 he said somethlag about the Doctor, and the Bjc
ter said, ' L*t him come in;" I did so; he came in the
dining rcom ; the Doctor acdaHays sat down together, and
Hays accused the Djctor of krowing where his wife wss:
tbe Doctor replied be did hot; Hays said ho would find
her before twenty four hoars, and he would out her up
Into mince meat; that was the last he said, and he then
left; tbe text ttornlrg the Doctor left ht? house
at about the usual hour, and on arriving at
bis office found Mrs Haye there, she hawog
fire to the office the night before, rang the
bell, and the woman let her in; she asked to remain all

l'fe of his wife; the Doctor remained in the office until he
went up with Mrs. Haye to the T'olice Court, for
?.he pr-poe of getting >ut a warrant sgelnut He?*;
this was about three weeks ago; on the day be
fore she had made a complaint before the coiri.
on the evening previous, where the deolared that
she was cot bis (Haye') wife, and so she told the magis
trate. The day before this occurred tbe Doctor said that
one rang at tbe bell, and when he came to the door,
ttwUt*- Hays there, who said she wanted to see him; he
excused blm-elf by saying he had a patient in hi* private
rflice. She appeared to be in ae awful etat# of mind. After
going to the Police Onert Mis. Hay* came home with me
to Harlem, and remained there from two to three days,
end then left. I'rior to her leaving ehe wrote n letter to
Haye, saying she wae going to Kngland Hhe came back
again to my house ani remained about two days, and
then she returned back to ber own house; I went
to ber house on th" same day, and I asked her if Mr.
Hajs had made an apology for what he sal 1 about my
husband; Hays had previously told me that he believed
the l ector had seduced hi' will npm r.iy demagog an
apolcgy. Hays wrote tbe fol'owlnj on a pleoe of paper, te
