I- ormation contained in the paper. Mr Barnes stated
t^tt the Information van desired for the purpose of as
aV sting in framing a bill which the citiirns required; and
ha, therefore, moved to refer the document to the New
York delegation. Mr. Conk ling proposed to refer it to a
Committee of the Whole House, ho wa? oppoaed to re
ferring any more business to the New York delegation
especially. Mr Boyd thought there oould be no other ;
reason Why the gentleman did not wish to refer to the
Mew York delegation than the fact that the delegation
standi 15 to 1. The motiou to print was carried, and the
communication was ordered to llo on the table. ;
The bill from the .-ycatr authorizing the city of Albany
to loan ita credit to the .Northern Kail road to the amount ,
of three hundred thousand dollar* was passed.
The New York Turn-Vrrein. or 'lumen Association, a
society of (Jermsn radical*, petitioned Tor ail act of Incor

which is strongly anti-slavery the Turners went into a
German meeting,* called in that city, in favor of the Ne
braska bill, and broke it up, as appears by a report in the
Hump To-day the Assembly committee nevertheless
reported against the bill to incorporate the Turn-Vcrein,
no that the German radicals have pained little by their
volunteered action in res|>ect to N? braaka.
To-morrow the Senate take up the question of the con

a full cbucub last evening and the utmost harmony pre
vailed. That party now iu the fenate may be regarded
as a unit, and will probably remain so if thu niggers can
be kept out.
The State Prison committees of both houses met in the
Senate chamber at three o'clock ;bis afternoon, for the
purpose of taking into consideration the peculiar position
of the jiecunlary concerns of these institutions. There
ports presented from Sing Sing and el.ewhere, show an
alarming indebtedness, renders it nec?',sary that some
thing should be done. Several officers of the prisons were
preseut, and sometliiiiK of a rambling discussion took
place, though no decisive steps were tnl en. The commit
tee concluded to wait until the Auburn inspector makes
his report of the indebtedness of that prison before pro
ceeding to action. Mr. Kirkpatrick will please hurry up
his report.
Jonathan Edwards, a member of the House from Rens

QUOR BILL. ALBAKT, M .rcU 9, 1854.
As more than two-thirds of the session is past, and as
it is now drawing to its last quarter, aud also on account
. f the certainty that it will not be extended beyond the
hundred days for which members are entitled to draw
pay, the necessity is constantly increasing for renewed
activity in the lobby. This morning tbere was a crowded
attendance. The certainty that tho final vote on the
Maine Liquor bill was to be takon in the Senate greatly
increased the numbers, particularly of the fair sex. A
very unexpected tumult arose, however, before the bill It
self was brought up. During the order of business for
the presentation of petitions, Mr. Brooks arose, with an
immense package of papers in his hands, and remarked
that the express from the city of New York brought to
him nearly three hundred remonstrances, upon each
of which was contained the names of three or four
hundred persons remonstrating against the passage
of the Temperance bill nuw order-id to a final vote
In this body. He was asked, when in the city,
whether the remonstrance of ten thousand citizens
would have any effect in preventing the passage of tho
b 11 Ho said he replied by informing the inquirer that
the present Legislature had I een elected as pledged to
the Ege of some such bill Mr H read a port, on of
? remonstrance, in which they state that 'he? de.V .?5?
the enactment of such a law, and will re-ist it by all the
menns in their power under the constitution of the
C?M?lrvVm. Clark said the remonstrance was of a pecu
liar character. They should be referred to the commit
tee having a portion of tlie Governor s mesnge in charge.
It is a verv common thing for foreigners coming to this
oountry? strangers to our laws and in-titutions? to lec
ture us who are native b< rn. lie was much astonished
that such papers should he present, i lie wanted them
referred to wine committee, in on' r that a report may
be made, teaching these politician* tuc right method of
anproaching a legislative body.
Mr. Williamson thought the remonstrance *.i?.iii ins.ilt
to the Senate. Are we to be driv .'U :'rutn the discharge or
our duty by such threats as those in-ide by those German
remonstrants? Shall we be interrogated by themfA
proper answer should be made to those communications.
Mr. Putnam remarked that the great Burke said, at the
time the American Revolution was shaking the British
throne, "something should be done for the progress or
liberty ". Now, when the same impulses actuate tree
men of the present day they should be tolerated. The
remonstrance before us is of German texture, not per
hai? as Americanized as it should be in language. He
did not know why this class of leojfle should not be
treated the same as other ciUxvu com tig bciore tuts
M"r. Crosby said the Germans are not the only class of
citizens who will be found to resist tho operation of the
Maine liquor law , but there were native citizens, also,
in abundance, who would co operate with ihem, so far as
the constitution will Justify sa.hr ?istanc?\
Mr Whitney advccuted tho mo: ion to refer th( remon
strance to a select commit .ee. He saw mure than a mere
remonstrance against the bill in this nie .surei it

in these remonstrances a large body ot laturalne 1 citi

The remonstrance pi esented this morning from c t'*?'
of Orleans county is strong, but e.ors no: go the
of those from New York, signed by those foreigners
there is nothing in it stating that they intend to oppose
the law as these imported foreigners >:eclare. The Ameri
can citizens lia\e equal rights to assert their privileges
as the Germans. This is only a part and parcel of what
occurred here a few days since, when un attempt was
made to exclude lnger bier fr.m the provisions of tl he
act This looks too much like a desire to encourage
foreigners. He was willing foreigner* should come here
and cultivate our lands, but not to uioUte in the affairs
ot government, and with his consent they ?ho"W ?? ?
be allowed to interfere in any ot our leglsUUve
matters. Mr. W said he had been called a native Amerl
can he thanked God that he was one, rn tli?
soil of New York-soil wet by the blood of his ancestors
in obtaining freedom? a soil consecrated by the efforts of
a yashington and his compeers. We have frequently
observed the manner in which these persons kept open
their rum -shops on Sunday, in dehance of the city a 1
thorities of New York, but we did not think they would
have the audacity to coine here and threaten us with < p
position to laws which this Legislature may lu its wisdom
deem proper to enact. .
Mr. Barr. ? After the bill had undergone a discussion
of two or three days, he became tolerably well satisfied
what the result would be, aud theielore refraiped from
taking any tart in the discussion, lhe matter now be
fore us is a great question. The right of petition is gen
eral to every citizen. Though the remonstrance is not
couched in exactly the language he should have desired,
still he did not consider it as disrespectful. The peti
tioners had been stigmatized by the senator from the
Fourth, (Mr. Whitney), as "creatures. Why did
he not call them wild beasts T* Is suchtheb^guageto

Opening of Adami Si Co.'s New Express
The new and splendid establishment of Adams k Co.,
No. 69 Broadway, was opened yesterday, and a rery
handsome entertainment was given last night in honor of
the occasion. The firm, we understand, has been in ex
istence some twelve years, and the present successful
condition of their concern is the strongest evidence
of the enterprise and energy which they have exhibited
in the pursuit of their peculiar business. When they
started, expressing was in its infancy, and a few hand
carts were considered sufficient for the transportation of
f: eight to various parts of the city; but it has since then
increased with a rapidity which has now surpassed that of
: almost any other business in the city. Adams k Co. not
. only transport freight to ull the principal cities along our
Atlnntic coast and to the West, but to California, Aus
tralia, and even the continent of Europe. The.v have
agencies in all the principal citie*, anil their
yearly receipt* amount to more than three millions of
, dollars, while the value of the various goods sent oyer
the different routes is estimated at a million of dollars.
In their establishment iu Broadway they have over seven
ty men employed, and keep a large number of wagons
and horses for the removal of freight to and from the
different railroad and steamboat depots throughout the
I city.
Their new building is fitted up in a style every way
commensurate with the extent of their business. They
have large vaults under ground for their freight, and
spacious and elegantly furnished offices on the first fUor.
; The exchange room is one of the finest apartments of the
I kind in the city, and has been fitted up without regard
; to expense.
' After the company had inspected the premises, they
< partook of the good things which had been provided by
; the hospitable proprietors. Complimentary toasts were
I given and replied to; after which the company dispersed,
I evidently gratified with what they had seen.
Murder Trial at Hempstead, L. I.
On Monday last, at Hempstead, Long Island, Michael
McCoy and James Duffy were placed at the bar for trial,
on an indictment charging them with the murder of a
young girl, 14 years of age, named Catharine Qulgley.
The murder was perpetrated on Sunday, the Oth day of
October laat, and then to conceal the crime, the body was
thrown into a pond located on Mr. Denton's farm, situ
ated on the Black stump road, about two miles from Ja
maica, where the body was discovered a day or two after
by Mr. Denton. The whole matter was investigated by
Justice Snedikerat the time, which we have already pub
lished, and resulted in the discharge of McCoy and Duffy,
w ho had been under arrest on suspicion of being the
guilty psrties. The grand inquest of the county subse
quently found a bill of indictment against McCoy and
Duffy, charging them with the murder, and they are now
on trial. On the part of the prosecution, Mr. Ogden Hoff
man, the Attorney General, not being able to attend, in
consequence of business at Albany, has deputed Mr.
Blunt, the District Attorney for this county, to act in his
place. Ex-Kecorder Tallmadge and Mr. Weasel Smith, of
Jamaica, are defending the prisoners.
Mlnslonai y Meeting at the Tabernacle.
A missionary meeting was held last evening at the
Tabernacle, and an address was delivered by the Rev.
Pr. Ituff, of Calcutta.
The exercises of the evening commenced by the Rev.
Pr. Vermilye invoking the Ihvine blessing.
The choir then sung a hymn, in which the congrega
tion all joined.
The Rev. Dr. Skinner then read a portion of the Scrip
tures, after which the Rev. Dr. Spring introduced Dr.
Dvrr, who was to address the audience upon the subject
of the missionaries.
He began by saying that it was a vulgar idea to keep '
all good and faithful ministers of God at home. Th
Lord had imposed upon them, since the death of Christ
the duty of sending missionaries to the benighted
pagans. Ha was sorry to see that there Were
many who were to all appearance so engrossed
in the glory of God that they never thought o
sending the lamp of light to the poor benighted idola
atora. He was sure that those who tried to keep the gos
pel to themselves would be certain to lose it in the end.
G-od, in mercy to us, had sent us missionaries at the
time of the reformation, and snatched us out of the toils '
of the horrid system of popery. Instead of decreasing j
the spreading of the gospel in our own land, as some ima- |
gined sending missionaries to foreign lands would, it was I
increasing vastly ? yes, beyond all ou? comprehension;
but aid waa continually required, for there were more
than eight hundred million souls to provide for. He was
glad to see that the American people were not neglecting
the poor savages of North America. They should not, ana
he hoped they would not, forget that God expected them
to promulgate the gospel among those heathen that were
thrown into their way. He then referred to the difficul
ties thrown in the way of the missionaries by the Roman
Catholic church and the Holland churchea in the East
Indies. The French also had endeavored to introdue*
infidelity and Popery. Although the Knglish nation,
when they took possession of the Kast Indies, committed
many atrocities, all for the love of filthy lucre, still their
conduct since should palliate their iniquities. There were
now three hundred and fifty millions in that ^st em
pire, who are received into the arms of the Churclfof God.
It was there Tor all of them, and would shelter them at
all times. lie then spoke of the honesty of the Hindoos.
They were remnrksble for the quietness of their temper
and tor their hospitality to strangers and all others who
might lie travelling through their country. He spoke of j
these qualities to show them the inducements that were
offered to those who wished to engage in the good work
of sending the Gospel of Jesus Christ abroad to these pa
gans and Mahommedans. The country was one of the
finest on the fate of the earth, resembling, in point of the
salubrity of its atmosphere and the richness of its soil,
the country of Egypt. Scenery was presented to the eye
mueh finer thim any in Europe, or perhaps in America.
The Malabar hills could supply the whole earth with
spiers and drugs, fruits of all kinds, and of the mo*t4ell
cious l!a\ ors. No scenery on earth was equal to that
seen from the hills of Cormora. In Cochin great rain* :
fall at certain seasons; he was there once when it rained I
sixty inches that month. They could calculate, however, |
ft r mi nths and months on not having one drop of rain. >
1 here' vi ere several races among the inhabitants of Hin
dostan; different languages were spoken, just as different
from one another as the French from the English or the
latin. There was now a language similar to ;
that of the Persian being introduced, and spoken
extensively in all Northern India. The Drah
mins were very proud of their aristocratic blood.
An Fnglii-h nobleman one day boasting to a Brahmin
that he could trace his genealogy back for the las
four hundred years, the Brahmin lifted up his eyei
wilh contempt, and said it was nothing ? he could
tr: ce his genealogy back for the last four millions of
ytars. but the^e lira li 111 ins could hardly be blamed for
U ing proud of their forefathers; for in every land there '
was an aristocracy, even in this country. (Laughter.) ,
lluiran nature was frail. The Brahmins say that nothin.
has happened within the last five thousand years worth j
recording, and therefore they have lei t a blank lor tha
period. (Laughter.) During so many centuries there
| was not anything that happened In that country that
n fu worth making any note of. The country was so grand,
1 the Him so large, their mountains so high, their popu
lation ^o great, and the number of their duties so as
touching and operated so strong on the minds of these
! poor benighted heathens, that they were bound by strong
! ties, and wrapt up in their religion to that extent that
many deeds of foolishness and cruelty were perpetrated
1 under the garb of religion. If they sneeze in the morning i
tbey do it in a religions sort of a way If a Hindoo goes to 1
I bathe in the evening he doe* it in a religious and sanctimo
nious way. They are all upside down in their Ideas believing
as they do In the transmigration of souls? believing that
their soul*, when living, might, for aught they know, be
in the carcase of a cat or a dog, iy>ig or a rat. If a Brah
min should come to ttiis country, one would suppose that
he would thihk it an honor to .-peak and dine with the
President of the United States, but he would not think
so, for when he would go back to his own country, he
would be degraded and would lose his caste, and would
1 e condemned to suffer for his sins in one of their hell*,
theieto atone for the great sin of speaking or having
any communication with one lower than him In caste.
Here, then, was a vast Held for the philanthropists.
Here, then, was work for the missionaries and the min
isters of God, to send and endeavor to plant the Gospel
!n that land where there are no less than one hun
dred millions of human being* utterly devoid of all
knowledge of the Supreme Reing. Then there were placo*
1 of pilgrimage, snd many thousand* of people might be
seen wending their way to these places. Thi* waa not
only In the north but in the south, and in fact all orer
the whole continent of India. He could not speak too
strong u| on that subject, when he remembered that there
were thousands of such places of pilgrimage on the vast
continent. If they could only elevate themselves over
that country and *ee the Millions going north, *outh.
enst and west, there would not be a day in the yeax that
they could not see there millions of human beings mov
ing up and down the hills upon which their places of
?iilgrimage are situated. There they might be seen roll- '
ing themselvea in the dirt and mud, groaning with pain
j snd fatigue; but happy, quite happy, were they, for they
| belli ved firmly that tbey were going the road to glory ,
and their heaven.

[From tin Boston Chronicle, March 9.]
Yntmtr iftmooi the bark 8axooville, Qaptain
Hntchina, from Calcutta, Oct 8, arrived at thin port, hav
ing on board Gap*. Rod bird, his mate, Josiah Townwrad,
and four other*, crew of the bark Orline St. John, taken
off the wreok of that vea*?J on the let lnet., in lat 37 05,
Ion 0T 60. The detail* of the disaster oontain a moat
heart-rending tale of suffering. The following account
we received from the survivors themselves:?
The bark Orline St John, of Gardiner, lie., nailed from
Norfolk for Barbadoee, her cargo consisting of floor, corn
and staves. There were nine perion* on board, including
the captain and lady, and the crew. Monday, February
31, when in lat. 34 10, Ion. 74, they eueountered a gale
from the southeast, which increased with great violence
as night came on; at 11 o'clock the scuttle wa* washed
away, the sea breaking over the dock, and the vessel was
thrown on her beamends; the cargo was shifted, and one
of the chains thrown over the side; but her masts went
S the board ? the main topmast and misenmast below
b top? and she partly righted. It was found impossi
ble to cut the chain loose, and every one was obliged to
take immediate measures to prevent being washed over
Mr. Josiah Townsend, the mate, endeavored to get a boat
ready, believing that that afforded the only hope of
safety, but he was swept overboard and was dreadfully
crushed and bruised by the spars, loose timbers and casks;
fortunately he regained the deck, but not until nearly ex
hausted. The captain, who was on deck, perceiving the
imminent peril, and knowing that in a moment more the
cabin would be filled with water, broke in the window
and called to his wife, who had just left her berth and
had only her night dress on ; in a few moments he suc
ceeded in draping her through the window uninjured,
nnd placed HKtn the main rigging, the only plaoe which
Cimised sflk for a single moment. In less than flf
n minutes tne cabin waa filled, and every moveable
thing was awept away. The night waa dark, and every
moment the ware* dashed over the party, all of whom,
except a colored seaman, named Martin, who was carried
overboard, had lashed themselves in the main rigging.
The captain supported his wife in bis arms, and stripped
off his clothing to keep her from suffering from cold.
Next morning one of the crew dived into the cabin,
hoping to secure some provisions or fresh water, but
nothing of the kind was found. The wind veered round to
the west, with a heavy sea breaking over thom. No ves
sel wan in sight. The captain endeavored to cheer his
wife wiili ilie hope of speedy rescue, yet he law that her
strength was rapidly failing under the exposure. The
place in which he stood waa hardly three feet square; yet
ne held his wife and supported her j at noon he Saw that
she was sinking rapidly, and at about four o'clock she
died in hia arma.
The next day passed like the first? their sufferings,
however, being the more intense from hunger and thirst.
A1 out 11 o'clock the [night of the '23d, the second mate,
who had drank salt water, being impelled by parching
thirst, started in search of fresh water. Mr. Townsend
remonstrated, assuring him that he would be washed
overboard if lie attempted to leave the rigging; he heed
ed not the remonstrance or solicitation and went forward,
but was never seen afterwards; he must have been wash
ed overboard immediately. He was a Scotchman, name
unknown, having shipped the day before the Orline
j About seven o'clock Wednesday morning a colored man
named Douglas died, and the sufferings of the survivor*
having increased by hunger to such an incredible extent,
it was suggested to eat his body, and the mate, Mr.
: Townsend, cut off a portion for the purpose of providing
the crew with the means of prolonging existence by eat
ing it. On Thursday the mate ate a small part of the
flesh, but no one else would eat it until Saturday, when
1 all partly appeased their appetites with it. It was then'
I demanded by the starving crew to eat the body of the
captain'* wife, which wa* still lashed in the rigging. The
captain and mate declared they would perish by starva
tion before they would preserve their lives by such a re
sort. Tlie body was then cut down and washed away.
That day they saw a sail to the southwest, but probably
were not seen. Subsequently two or three vessels hove
in sight and made tack* towards the wreck, evidently
perceiving it, but being unable to reach it bore off again.
The bright hope and utter despair thu* caused must have
been beyond desbription. Friday they were descried by
a vessel, having a fair wind to run towards her, had she
been disposed to do so, but she proceeded on her course.
On the 1st init., the Saxonville fell in with the wreck
and rescued the survivors. When taken off, they were
unable to stand. They received the kindest aitentions.
Their names are Capt. Wm. Rodbird, Josiah Townsend, of
New Jersey, Peter Johnson, Thomas Grant, and Ciemr
Connor, /two last named colored.) They are all very
much exhausted. Capt. Rodbird and Thomas Grant
were Is at evening conveyed to the Maaaachusetts General
Hospital, where it was found it would be necessary to
amputate both of Grant's legs below the knees. The
other three were taken to the hospital in Chelae*. All of
them are every much emaciated. Capt. Rodbird and wife
belonged to Bath, Me., and had been married but four
month*. She was] 53 years old, had been previously
married, nnd leaves three daughters.
The Orline St. John wa* owned by William Bradstreet,
was of 236 tons, built in 1848, and was a fine vessel.
Optrt Hon of the Maine Law In Maine.
Bangor. Me., February 26.
I hare a strong and unspeakable hope that the citlsens
of Portsmouth (my native place) and the people in New
Hampshire generally, will show their good sense and
independence in not suffering the Maine law hobby to '
divide and distract them ; for this humbug is in truth and
fact the easiest foot ball for demagogues to ride and kick
about, that ever was started. It is made the mere too'
of tricksters to operate on the feara of the people ; and
vet many of the men who are the loudest ana most noisy
in support of the Maine law in this State are the liquor
dealers ; they go for it almost to a man, and hare no wish
for its repeal. And wherefore! Because they now sell
liquors at prices never before known ; from one hundred
to five hundred per cent advance I Ten and twelve and
a half cents per glass are the ruling prices in this city,
and generally through the State. And there are not less
than fifty places now open and well known in Bangor,
where liquors are fold by the glass every day, and Sun
days not excepted t Anil liquors can be bought here In
any quantity, from a quart to a barrel, in several places,
and tor every gallon seised and destroyed, twenty gal
lons come to' take its place ; and that, too, in spite of the
utmost vigilance of the police of our city.
At the January term of our Supreme Court, holden at
Bangor, some thirty cases of appeal from the Police court
came up for trial, and the whole batch were quashed, or
dismissed, or continued. The thing won't go down here.
And so it was at Saco at the late term of the Supreme
Court there; some thirty-tliree liquor cases came up for
trial, and were dismissed, quashed, or returned.
And so it was at the court held in Belfast last month.
And at the Lincoln Circuit, held at Wlaoasset, the
twenty-two cases which came up for trial were served
the same fate ? quaahed, dismissed, or continued.
At Portland, the thing is completely ran into the
ground; there are not less than one hundred places open
every day, and every night too, where liquors are sold by
the glass. And one firm ? Cole ft Richards ? have given
bonds on suits, for selling, amounting to $4,600, and can
find bail in $20,000 more, if necessary.
At Augusta, the seat of government, boys are employed
to sell liquor from tin cans in the most public streets,
like milkmen. So states a correspondent In the Journal,
published at Portland, while the hotels usually keep and
serve the stuff to all who want a drink.
At Rockland, Kllsworth, Gardiner, Bath, and many
other towns, liquors are sold in any quantity required.
At Readfield the people in town meeting assembled, and
passed an order to pay the fine of $300 and costs imposed
on one of their citirens for liquor selling. And other
towns are ready to do likewise, as I am credibly informed.
1 give you undeniable, recorded and astounding facts,
as the courts he-re ruled : and what nearly all the papers
in the places I have named, have admitted, and can't
deny; and what every traveller in Maine must see for
himself ; and yet to hear about the liquor traffic being
extinguished in this State, is the greatest humbug yet
conceived in this humbugging age.
At a convention of liberals held at Woodstock the fol
lowing resolution was adopted: ?
Revived, That we believe tbe cause ef temperance has de
clined since the enactment of the present stringent lawn for
its support; and that, to recovcr tbe ground already lost hy
ill leiii-Utien upon this ?abject, it is necessary to drive tbe
question altogether from tbe political arena, and to return
to the gnnd ,.ld way of convincing men of the error of their
ways by the power of reason.
On the 4th instant, . the Finance Committee of the
Maryland Senate, to whom had been referred the prohibi
tory liquor bill from the House, clearly urged the in
expediency of its adoption, on the ground that It would
be detrimental to the reaources or the State, and inju
rious. The committee was discharged from the further
consideration of the subject, and tne measure will, we
resume, be at once disposed of for the session. A new
i II is. however, proposed in the House, to take the sense
of the people upon a prohibitory liquor bill.

The examination of ex- Alderman Reilly, on a charge ?.
violent assault on Mi** Cook, principal of primary de
partment, was commenced before Alderman Spark* and
a jury last evening, at Public School No. 2, In the Second
ward. Some three hundred persons were present. The
complaint waa made by the trustee*. Mr. Culver ap
peared aa counsel for the people, and Messrs. O'Brien
and Cook for the defendant.
The principal of the school, Mr. Woodworth, waa the
first witness called.
Mr. Woodworth, sworn, said ? On Friday, the 8th of
February, about 12 o'clock, I was engaged hearing the
recitation of a class, in the third atory of the building;
while so engaged the door was opened somewhat abrupt
ly, nnd Mr Reilly came in with his little son; Mr. R.
spoke to me, and held up his boy's hand, which appear
ed to haTe some blood upon it, and aaid ? "la not this
too bad T ? it is a shame;" I asked what the matter was f
I he aaid "that it was a d d shame;" previous to
this he asked me to go and aee the teacher;
I went down to Miae Cook's room, who ia principal of th
primary department; she was engaged with a class; Mr
Reilly uaed considerable profane language in th? preeence
of Miss Cook ; he shook his list toward her and aaid,
"Damn you, if you were a man 1 would take satisfaction
on the spot;" he also said that he bad or would make ft
complaint against her; Mr. Reilly made a number of ex
pressions, such aa, "I'll be d ? d if 1 won't have satisfac
: lion;" aa he was leaving I aaked him what he was going
j to do? he said, "come outside and we will aee;" he said
| this in a daring manner, and the whole conversation took
I place in the presence of scholars.
Mias Sophronia Cook sworn ? I am the teacher alluded
; to in Mr. woodworth's testimony; I emvred this school
; as principal of primary department in June, 1862: 1 re
; collect the occurrence of Feb. 3; I was standing in the
desk and the children were ab6ut the room eatingtheir
dinner at the time Mr. Reilly came in with Mr. Wood
worth; he approached me, and with a gesture of the hand
threatened me with the law, and aaid if 1 had been
1 a man he would deal with me himself ; he used
profane language several times; I think his fist waa
closed; I think ne used profane language quite a num
ber of times.
Counsellor Cook ? Tou think: we do not want to know
what you think. (Loud hisses by the audience.)
Witness ? Mr. Reilly had hil boy with him; I had
punished him for having repeatedly broken the rules; I
struck the boy on the hand twice With a small rattan,
about two and a half feet long; when Mr. Reilly came in
with the lioy 1 saw blood on bis hand' I said I did not
do It; the boy answered that he cut his hand with a
knife, and my striking his hand caused it to bleed; Mr.
Reilly seemed to take no notice of the boy's statement,
but continued to une abusive language; I was not aware
that his hand wan sore.
Miss Louisa Tilly sworn? I am second assistant in the
primary department; Mr. Reilly 's boy was under my
charge; I recollect the day spoken of by Miss Cook; I took
the boy Reilly up to Mis* Cook to be corrected for several
offences; when he came back he said his hand was bleed
ing; I looked at it and found about three drops of blood.
Mr. Reilly'* boy, seven and a half years old, was then
brought on the stand, but his evidence was not taken, in
consequence of his youth.
The testimony was here rested, at 10% o'clock, and the
counsel proceeded to sum up, and had not concluded
when our reporter left. The audience present showed a
strong feeling against Mr. Reilly, by hisses and other
Svddxh I 'kith. ? Between one and two o'clock yester
day afternoon, a man named Patrick Develin, residing in
North Fourth street, near Third, died very suddenly. He
had been sick from a cold about two months, and yes
terday was feired with a difficulty of breathing and died
in a few minutes. Coroner Hanford summoned a jury,
and after the testimony of Mrs. Develin, the investigation
was adjourned to this evening, for the purpose of having
a pott mortem examination.
Superior Court.
Before Hon. Judge Duer.
March 9 .?in the Matter Swan tw. Malhewt. ? Mr. D.
B. Taylor moved that the plaintiff file security for costs,
he being ft resident of King* county, and consequently
beyond the jurisdiction of this court. The defence inter
posed wftn that issue was joined and the cake placed upon
the calendar, and therefore the application was made too
Iftte. Judge Duer aaid that he liaA consulted his col
leagues, and they agreed with him that the motion
came too late, and must be denied, but without costs.
This in regarded as a new rule of practice, and if likely to
create a sensation among the profession.
Before Hon. Judge Bosworth and a Jury.
Makch 0. ? Simon Gage v?. John P, Gumming and
othert. ? This was an action against a policeman and at)
owner of a wharf for false imprisonment, in causing
the prisoner to be arrested for unloading a quantity of
brick from a sloop, which the lessee of the wharf order
ed him to desist from. He refused to do so, and the police
man took him into custody ? but he was immediately dis
charged by the magistrate. The case waft tried last
term, and reported. On that occasion the jury did not
agree, but in the present instance the jury returned a
verdict of 960 for the plaintiff.
Frederick Kravpfvhl ?*. John Griffith. ? Action for
assault and battery by striking the plaintiff with a shut
ter. Verdict for plaintiff, $60.
Before Hon. Judge Slosson and a Jury.
March 8. ? Edmvnd Palmer ayaintt like New York
Floating Dry Dock Company. ? This was an action brought
by the plaintiff, a shipcarpenter, of this city, against the
above company, for injurfss smtsined bjr him under the
ollowlng circumstances: ? In January, 1861, the defend
ant* were engaged in raising, at their dry dock, on the
East river, near Rutgers street, in this city, the steam
hip Ohio, for the purpose of enabling the said vessel to
be coppered and repaired. The dock was provided by the
defendants with standards for the support of such scaf
' oldings aa might be erected by the persons engaged in
coppering nnd repairing the vessel. The owners of the
steamship Ohio employed Jeremiah Slmonson and Rodney
P. Lugar to copper and repair the Ohio, after she was so
raised on to the dry dock; and they erected a scaffolding
alongside the vessel, using for that purpose the standards
provided by the Dry Dock Company for the support
thereof. Messrs. Simonson and Lugar employed the
plaintiff to assist In the coppering and repairing of
said vessel, and while so engaged the scaffolding
gave way, and precipitated tne plaintiff and se
veral others to the dock, a distance of about fourteen
feet, breaking one of his arms, several ribs, and
severely injuring one of his hips, in consequence of
which, it was alleged^ he waa confined to his bed, unable
to move or turn without assistance, for five or six
weeks, and that he waa unable to rise from his bed for
six months afterwards. Messrs. Horace F. Clark and
Rapallo, counsel for the plaintiff, contended that the lat
ter was permanently injured for life, and incapacitated
from ever earning anything again, or ever regaining the
use of his limbs, and claimed damages to the amount of
$20,000. It was also contended that the defendants were
bound to provide proper and sufficient standards for the
auppurt or tbe Maid scaff olding, and that it waa their duty
so to do, and that the giving way of the same waa in con
aequence of the negligent and inefficient construction of
the said atandard, and the fastenings thereof, by the de
fendants, for which they were liable to the plaintiff for
the damages sustained by him, aa above stated.
For the defence it was contended, by Mr. Edward Sand- ,
ford for the company, "that the defendants were not res- I
ponsible for the accident, not having employed or being ,
in any manner connected with the plaintiff. The acci- '
dent arose entirely from the careless manner of suspend- i
ing the scaffolding, which work was performed wholly by
Simonson and Lugar, and men in their employ. The de
fendants, it wss alleged, were not liable by reason of
their furnishing and permitting the standards to be used,
as they were sufficient for the purpose if they were used
in the manner they were designed to be. They were
never intended to sustain any lateral or backward pres
sure, nor but a slight perpendicular pressure, and were
capable of being used without the eyebolt which gave
way, ever being used at all. Counsel contended that
theie was no negligence on the part of the defendants,
but aharged negligence on the part of the plaintiff and
his employers in suspending the scaffolding the way it
was when the accident happened.
The standard in question, some twenty feet in length,
was brought into court for the inspection of the jury, and
also a model of the steamship Ohio, to illustrate the man
ner of erecting scaffolds for repairing vessels when on the 1
dry dock. The caso is still on.
Police Intelligence.
Mr. McNulty Honorably Acquitted. ? A few days ago we
noticed a complaint made against Mr. John McNulty, by
John Connelly, who changed that McNulty had passed to
him, in payment of a claim of MO, a fifty dollar coun
terfeit bill on the Bunker HI Bank. The case was heard
on Wednesday before Justice ?shorn; and it waa shown
by the evidence of ? broker that the alleged counterfeit ,
bill wns a good one. On this testimony the magistrate,
of course, at once honorably acquitted Mr. McNulty from
the Recusation.
A Charge f Fmlmlemenl. ? Yesterday Sergeant Smith,
of the lower police, arrested a man named Win. Johnson,
on s clinrge of embezzling money from his employer,
ffm. Lewis, of No. 462 Pearl street. Tbe evidence in the
case showed that Johnson waa employed as a bookkeeper,
and rlso was directed to collect bills; that on the 14th of
January last he called on the firm of Windle k Co , No.
66 Maiden lane, and collected ft bill of $67 68, dne his
employer, which Amount he appropriated to his own use.
Tbe accused was taken before Justice Otborn, who com*
mitted him to prison for trial.
