It is qjt'e clear that in specityiog this charge of adultery, w 'uaat specify iag tae person* with whom it was aam muted, that tVe specification -hould set forth with rta-oLable certainty the time, place and circuasatanMs under which it took place. Sow, this sompiaiat does that, or claims to have done it in . eferense to seven par ticular places In a- first plac, it charges that adultery waa committed by the defendant, naming it in general term*, at the corner of Houston and Mercer streets; and '?a tae seeont pUse it war alleged to hav? been cuaimit ted at theaouse of Mary (iaiiagher, in V\rooster strest ? ?here bnag to number to the Uause. In the thirl piaje, it waa alleged to have been committed a": No. ?H Variclc stiee-.; in the t jarth place, at No. 66 Wooster street; ia the 5fth place at No. 69 West Thirty-sixth street, wh)."h I underataad to be the place where th?se p?r".es rtslctd before tteir separation, in tae sixth p.ac<, at a houie in Amity street, between Mercer bci 0-<.*ce stietts. and in tne seventh place at So 85 St. Mark rjplace. where, 1 understand, this worn in resided a 1864. A great deal of evidence ha.<< been given as to Si 88 Wooster street, but it turns oat, after examining ihe complaint, that No. 88 Wooster street is not men - tinned in tbe complaint at all. The c uinsel on both aides bavegone <n acd tried the ma .ter as if the adultery was charged to have taken pJiee at that ntimaer. 1:' this nuttf had been brought to mv a tentloa earner in toe pr ?r?sa jf tae trial, 1 should have^xcluded all tOat kind o: eftdenee. ffcis, gentlemen, la the character of the is sue* which ycu are now to try. The endence. you Will perceive, as > - pec:? these variou:; places named, is what the law calls circumstantial evidence No witness has teen called who pretended to say anything in relation to soy act of adultery commuted by this woman, bnt the flam'.iff has nimiilf attempted to tra:e her. on various >.ccas:ona, to trese house,-, of ill Un.e. The ground of the p ain iff 'k cs-e is. ana tbe ltgitimata ioterence he draws iom ihe fact of herri-iJog .hese Houses of iil fame U, that ?l?e wnt there for the purpose of prostituting her teli on tbers <.ccaaion?. That, Ken lie men, is le (riiinate Und of proof, ondoubtedly, because, in oileneee of thi- kinil, there caa be scarcely any riiect evideone of the tact, and the Court and jury muat rely upon circumstantial evidence. Itjs i npor tint, peihaps, gtntlemen, for yon t > unierst ind what tbe rules of law as well as gooc sense, es'.ablkh in re ft r t c ce to tbe effect ant operation of this k nl of eTl ( rt.ee. In tbe first place, every man or woman is pie s ,ael to I* lonnsent until his or b?r guilt la estaluished. fh* law, as well ae Christian :aartty, teil us to do that. io an<lou?teal.T our duty is, first, to ascertain with csr ihintv what ciicumstsnces are r ived and then to ask curseires ttis question ? can tb?-se clreumst.ances be rf .'.socaMy accountsd for upon the supposition of the i. ti MjLc.y of tbe patties? ir they can be. why taen, of ci urse, circuiretantial evidence fails, biit i' they cannot t*. the duty tf the jury then ii to reet up m these circum -htsocsf, ai.'l to draw from them those inference whica Wbi mire i?Vty all men may naturally draw. Thedu-y tf.be jo-y in the. -e cues Is to begin by supposing a party ci arged with such an offenoe to oe iaDO-en: uniil certain tac:s are proved tendin* to excite suspicions or gunt. lae -arv are always to suppose tha: the wiman or man, a *he" cafe may be, is to he considered innoesnt Hi the f.rs*, iautar.ee. until they are drfen, by tu*t kind of eaoTic'lon which they cauaot resist, tt.at the guilt must fxist because tbe circuaastances a"et<lirg the ca?? are not consistent with the lnnooence of 'ae pa'tj- That, gw'etr- n. is tlieaatmte of ciroam s's'-t.al evfi'ence, as applicable to this case. Now, there a:< ?ome thing" w' Ich have f truck ,;e as being rather p cu'iar on both aides of this case. In the opening of the p'afitiff sod the jief*rc?, anc in tbe sommiaK up on bith ?> see, counsel ha ? exhibited gre?>. real, and it Is natural enough, ater listening only to the suggestions of their clients, that they shculd imWoe strong and personal or'oiots as to the innocence or guilt ol the parties, and expr**. Such opini ns in very *tmng languagf How far 1: ia ptoper ftr counsel eo to identify themselves with any ca?*> as to a<!d t) 1( the weight ot their own pers >nal sha ta'er, and their conviction of the truth of alleged f?i*ts, ia a matter that perhaps it is not lmpor .ant to dis c ?*.' It ?* very difficult, as 1 know from my own axpe ,e,. ob*ei vallov, for counsel to separat < themselves e entirely Irom a case ae to refer exotusErely to tb^ fus s th?t ere o:> ved, and avoid any inferences In tbelr own t !??'? *e to what they may veiily believe to be true. It > ? ,r a porta o' I ore Jury ? ami 1 hav? liad ocjaeloo ., eatl'1 to call "h Ir ntioa ' th? su>?js >V-to nepi rs n.r.x i ; Utf eta'.emeats mace by counsel, either ia I be ope log or snirmirg up a case, from the proof. became upon the proof job are to ctcii'a this matter, and m* upon statement* which coun sel may na fit to make, however positively they ere made, or whatever the personal character o' the oounsel may lit*. There ia another observation which 1 with to make in this conutcticu. It very often Uappeas thai in the court* oi a trial? particularly in trials of this charac ter ? that cuunael will make cBers to prove oertain alleged facia, and make them in very broad and strong language; and the Ci-urt it very of en called upon to ssj whether such offer* can be recaived. The Court is often ob iged to nay that they cannot be reoeived, and, of conrre, they are withdrawn. Some pejpte, thinking of thia matter superficially, may be impressed with the Idea tkat cnutoel bare offered to prove an important fact, and infer, therefore, that it ia true. That in an in ference wbich a juiv have no right to draw. Now, this thing ha? happened in this case. The ttatetr.ciis of counsel on bo'h sices have been very positive, throwing the weight of their persona, veracity Co support ot Much statements, and in the course or the trial offern have been Made cn both aidea te prove things which counsel consderea they nad a rig-t to prove, but which have been rejected. Tbe jury will earefally c in sider all tie facts in thin cane from the evi ? vide nee tba* is actually before them. No w, stripping the caae of all tbe considerations I have named, an-) which are te be exoluded entirety, the whole case re solves itself into 1 hi*. Here are certain srUnesse* who have sworn t > facts with respect to thia woman tending to scow that the was in the habit ot visiting bouses of ill fame. Tb' ue witnesses, 1 think, all of them, exoept one, uave been impeached. Testimony. more or Issb strong, has been offered tending to impeach them. Tes timony. tor, morecr leas strong, ha j beeu offered to sus tain their testimony, as you miy think proper to view tt. Tbere has beeu a great variety of other facta proved, some of them very trifling indeed; aach, fir instance, as the attempts oa the part of this woman to dit guiae hertftif by wearing mourning or wearing two ve>ia. an a number of other things, which , standing by then seivee, maj or may not influence your judgment in reference to 'tie in?in questioa; but wliton may have a bearing on the general aspect of the caae waen you con?i ei them in connection with other fact*. Taking ail thesu ttiicgi into consideration, gentlemen, you are to oeiermine tM? question:? Do you or do you nit reiy with safety upon the " testimony, which has been given by thew witnesses on the part ot tae plaintiff? They are, as 1 understand them, ttiis man C'arliart, ti " ne, the jousg man Aysrs and Mr. Clark hicepetdent ot these four persons, the testimo ny whicu baa been given throug ? out this l ing trial, is hard)} c rrooorailve, but it is relevan'. to the subject hs bsa leg upon the general conduc: of the pai ties in tnls case. ! wtih to lemark here that I have excluded all testimony in refeience to the conduct of this wemtn pie\ ioua 10 he. warr'agf- The issue forniei Is, whether she has conimltteu hduitery since her marriage. If this woman had been ever of so puie life previous to ratr risg', that 'act cannot be given in evidence in her fa?or, or if she nac: ever ltd so bat a life during the same, it could not be given in evidt ?? agtfnst her, because no pen on can come pr-^ared to exp ain in c urt eve. j act cf his or her u'e. I'nleis the charge agiin.-t a persra is of general bad character, he cannot in jus' ice hik HMW be called upon to answer particular cLa.ges. oecau-e it ?annut be expacted that he would be p:e pa'e> to cefend bin-self at ad times against tbem. It is tbe uic ate of go u sen>e. l'airtess and justise, to re quire 'a*: parties i eeklog a civorcsihou.d be confiuei to t>nne*c tons which took place subsequently to theit mar riage. It appear that the plaintiff in tht) case. I think, in tne 'all of 185;:, ?nf visited by two members of hi* vestry aud they informed him of jircuma ancea which in< uceu ttem to say that he ou^ht to separate himself tun. ti is vnir.sn. Ttere are cncumstanota that we do not Wlow uor are we at liber > to consider them, be cause .he'.e is no pro f to sustain them. Whether these iepietentati"n? ne:e facts or rumors we do not know. Scniethirg did fall from the Hps of oae of tce>e witnesses, that there were rumors ab)ut the conduct ot thia wtrniu previous to tbe marriage. What ever the purp seof these rumor* was, 1: was very proper teat .his i sio:iff ,-bnuld ku w, them, and that he should make mqr riea ana invest igatt ons as to their tru;h, and as to rter cjrd..ct -lince hei marriaje. fae jury ciunot undeit*ke ji.atly acd reasonably to suppose that any thing oiu ts? e place prey ious to marriage, which could jusutj ihei-t- changes ur render probable the existence ot tbe fac ' allege i. Tbw testimoay was brought ont by sui:>r> - i a < ii the other fide, some evidiace having been ad. u to sbow .hat tne plaintiff endeavored to dissolve the ma'rtage between himself and Wife from a desire on bis part tc get lid of her, bscausc ehs hal not brought htm as mnch property as he hai expected. There was Eornv testinony aj'iac?n to show that he was oisap ptin ed on tnia iicorunt. The whole thing Is veiy trilling, und of no imp ;.-tanc- aidwillol itself amoua; to little.

NON-INTER FERENCE OF AN ENGLISH WAR SHIP? THE FILI BUSTERS OF THE AHCHILALD GKACII. [From tbe Alta California, March 6.] We learn fri m Mr. Miller, who catne passenger in the sctcooer Oiulielta. from Mazat'an, the following details ot an outrage on an American sbip'at San Bias. The Awe icbu ship Adeline, of Boston, Captain Woods, from Valparaiso tor San Bias, with a general cargo, con slstirg of dry goods, <Cc., consigned to Mr For ae 3. the American Consul at that place, arrived on the Mexican coast, after having sprung aleak, and the crew being on hu iltnMI ot a oottle ot water a day each; put into Tres Maiias Inland IHisember 20, ana sent a boat on shore tor water. The boat was lost in the smf, when another boat was despatched to try and reach the shore, the captain, mate and steward being ail that remained on boatd. A Mexican man-of war sshoonar hove la sight and so >n came alongside 'lie Adeline, which she botraei and took possession of. Cipt. Wood was taaen on ooard the schooner, and placed utder a g lardof twenty six soldiers. When the crew ot the ship returned on board the c >ra mand<r cf the schooner took charge of t be Adeline and then br< u<ht her into San Bias, where she lata until January 20 During this time they sett officers on board and took out the entire ctrgo, and a'.so nearly all the wearing ap parel of the captain, mate and crew. They thea hauled her into tae inner barber. C*pt. Wood protested strongly against this high handed outrage, but to all to no purpose, lie then left aud went to Mazatlan, where he sttll remains. rhe Bri i-h frigate President wai there at the time, and mast have known of the occurrence Capt. Wood would have communicate! with her bu' was not allowed by the authoii;?es. The c? go of tbe Adeline was shipped at Valparaiso by Messrs. Mlckle & Co., American merchants. Mr. Hue, the supercargo, was on board, and remained at San Bias. Tbe t^ate and a port 'on of the crew came passengers in tbe schooner G ultet'a. The teason given by the authorities for seizirg the ves sfl waa. that they toos her for a smuggler, the ship at tbe lime was eeventv-three milei Uom any port on the Mexican coast. We learn that the captains and craws of the barka R. Adaaas and Archibald Gracie, together with tighty ot ths lilibuiterera, bave been sent to Tepie. Toe captain of the P.. Adams was in a most destitute condition. Tne bark had keen robbed of everything on board, and entirely dismantled by tbe na ives. The Mexican soldiers had forcibly taken everything from the unfortunate oreirs cf the ve sals, and left them almost naked. Political Intelligence^ THE KNOW NOTHING STATE COUNCIL BBPCDI ITE3 THE NOMINATION. The following 1b the mejo.-tty report. &8 adopted b y the Ohio Know Nothing -ttate Convention: ? Whereas. the American c.-g?nization in Ohio had it a origin in, and has been maintained for, purposes of re form: And whereas, a true regard for the honor of the Ame rican name, the security ot Amsnean rights, and the prosperity of the American people require a a eadfast maintenance of tbe great principle of freedom upon wiilch Aroeii:an institutions are oased ? We. therefore, the delegates of the Councils of the American Order in OM>, in State Council as sembled, fully approve oi the action of th3.se dele gi>'( h from Ohio in tne National American Council ar.d Convention rooently assembled at Philadelphia, in refu-irg to accept the platform or support the nomina ttc at then ami thei e made, and hereby repudiate those nominations, and embrace this occasion to reaffirm sub stantially the platform adopted by the State Council at its FCMitn at C.evelaud in .fune last, as follow*: ? We proclaim to the woild the following principles of the American party ot Ohic : ? 1. ihe unlimited free:om of religion disconnected with prliucf ? hostility to ecclesiastical ioflaencBS upon the affa.is of government ? equalit} of xiguts to all natura lized emigrants who are thoroughly Americanize and o?r no temporal allegiance, by reason of their reRgion, h'gter than that to the c )n?titvtlon. 2. We propose no proscription o birth, but welcome exiles and emigrants from other lands to 'ree participa tion it the benefits ot American institutions, ana the pri vileges of American citizenship, with Bueh restrictions only as are need till to make sure that those who avail tr-emeelves of 'his liberality, understand and will dafend there institutions agaicst all aggression, civil or ? -.c'est astical ? to which end the laws regulating naturalization sli.tuld be properly amended. Opposition to all pclitical organizations composed exclusively of foreigners, and to foreign military com panies, and to all attempts to exciuce the Bible from schools supported by the government. 6. Slavery is lecal, not national. We oppose i 's ex tension in any of our Territories, and the increase of its political powsr, by the admission of any slave mates or otherwise: and we demand of the general government an immediate redress of the great wrongs which have been mllicted upon the cause of freedom aod the American character by ihe repeal of the Missouri Compromise, and the introduction ot slavery into Kansas in violation of law, by the force of aims, and the destruction of the elec tive franc! lse. 5. In humble imitation ot the wisdom of Washing ton, we oppose all intervention in toe affiiraof foreign States; yet on all proper occasions, we will not withhold our sympathy from any people aspiring t> be free. 6. We support American industry and genius against tbe adverse policy of foregn nations, and facilities to in ternal and external commerce by tne improvement of rivers and harborp, and tbe construction ot national roads correcting the Atlantle and the Pacific ooeans, an uniting tbe various sections ot th> I'uloa. T. 'the I'uion cf these Ststes should be made per petual by a faithful allegiance to the constitution. Niagara falls In Winter. [From the Buffalo Advertiser. March 22. J One who has never seen Niagara Falls as they appear in the winter reason has yet to look upon one ot tbe grandest scen<s the eye can possibly rest noon. During the present winter the appearance of the falls and vielat - ty had been unusually attractive. The long continue! extreme cold began iis work in January, and laborel dili gently in decking all nature near the cataract wi'h its frcflty decorations. Huge mounds of frozen spray soon be^an to tower up heie aii.j t.beie; trees and twigs were covered in icy vestments: the rocks were corerul with tbe trace work ot frost; while the liver Itself was choak ed it its progress below the tails, with a firm unyielding barricade of ice. During tbe most severe days of the cold cj cle, the display was beyond ceecriptio*. The mild weather which has vlsi'ed us during the past week has had its effect and has destroyed some of tbe more deli cate of th% ice embellishments, still the more substantial am' grand tecoration* remain and afford to the visiter a sigh rare'y to be looked npon. as.il we notice that quite a number ot strangers arrive daily on thsir way thither. At present tbe trees upon Goat Island, during the day time, are divested of their icy armor, the warm rays of the r un proving too mush for it. Still, at night, every particle of spray which may touch besoces a very jewel glittering in the moonlight, and the air is filled with dancing sparkles. Then there shoots forth from tie trunks of sor.b of tbe larger trees, udob whose sides have ?ort.ed heavy maRses of frozen spray, all the colors of the prism, and tbe odd shapes In which tbe ice has formed, in the gray light, remind one of the fairy grottoes of Which we read in our childhood days. The Horae Shoe fall has not received so finished an em bellishment as tie American, though a huge conical mound formed of frozen rpray comes looming up from tbe base of tbe fall, immediately beneath tbe tower, its top reaching halt way to the surface of the bank. From tbe banks on either side huge stalactites of ice Jut out from the crevices In the reeks, and hang glittering in the moonlight. Up to about ten days since most of the islands which cluster about Goat Island have been visited, and some n then., upon which mortal foot has rarely trod, have been reached. Just below Chopin's Island, on the brink of the falls, and jutting out beyond its edge, there has formed a mound which has been reached by two or t^ree daring persons, and by one party who drove up to its northern -Ide with a horse ai>d cutter, i'pon Ooapin's Island are displayed various embellish nent* In the shajie of flag", red fisnne!, weathercocks, ftc., upon which guides will expatiate In glowing terms, during ths coming reason, to enthusiastic tourists. In , isini'.y of the ferry stairs on the American side ths view at night is grand in the extreme. At the fo it of the stain, rising up from the river, and quite a distance from tbemal'i ' bore, is a conical mound, similar io the nte neer the tower, but vastly larger, being over one bundled feet in height? Its top round and as symmetri cal as though the work of man, and Its sides smooth and glittering with the particles of spray congealing as they 'ouch. Standing in some positions, one can see a lunn r rait bow, all the colors p-'rTect and distinct, encircling the hug" tnaund, lending additional charms to it. On the bank at the head of the terry i-tairs there has accumu lated such a mass of snow aad lee as we have nevar before locked upon The staircases have been pretty thorousth v b'ocked up at the lower end and the passage down the steps is rather pre -arioas, at the sa?e time exciting. Tha cars down tbe stalrsase have not been run during tha win er until day HeOre yesterday, and thsn only part way down. We notice that tb? proprietor* of the s'Aircaaei Lava mv'e e au Improvement i-n eubstltutlng la plaoe of the heavy rope caMei with which the ears an run cable* ear e entirely of wire. These are in no possible danger of breaking, and are, we are told, inofth better for the working ot the machinery. Froaa the foot of the rtalrcaee me scramble* over hummucksof lee an* snow, and br a ra her exiiting tonr of walking, slipping and running, lauds npon the solid iee bridge wblnn is formed between the tiro shares. From the middle of tbis bridge U presented a view ot he whole seene, tban whleb none can be ?'we grand, espe cially br moonlight. The falls and vicinity Have scaroe li ever presented so fine an apoearanee in win er as during this season, and whether we aba-l ever have an opportunity of witnessing ao grand a scene as at present, we wot not, and would therefore reewa-nend to ail to improve "he present opportunity of vi*i Lag them, le<it tbey may never have a like opportunity. Freemasonry in Switzerland ? A rather cu rious discussion has Just taken place in the (Ira (id Coun cil of Genera on matter* relating to F eemasonry. It appears that tbe Council of 8ta-e, on the demand of the members ot the Masonic Ordsr o the temple, presented a bill for granting that body a gra*utt< us conoesfioo of a piece <f ground for erecting a chapel. Tie application was tounded on the tact thai Freemasonry was to oe con sidered a creet4 as well as ant other, is Freemasons re cognised the exinenee of Go and the immortality ot' the s nl, and were bound to the practice of ev?ry virtue. General Dufour opposed the bill, and denied that a secret society could he de?igoa>ed as a creed. M. C*mp?rij proposed that the bill should be referreo to a eomrolt'ee, as the questl n wai- no* a play on the word "creed," but a Jutt aop eci tion of the claims ot the petitioners, fhii proposition was opposed by M ?ietet, who said that t ie application was not made br the majority of toe Free ma sons of Gent va but by a dissentient minority. M F*zy ?i pported the bill and tbe p-opusal tha . it sheuld be neat to a committee. He maintained th? opinion that Free masonry was a creed, and one of the purest kitd, as it invited all opinions to meet as fries-is on the sate* ground. As to the dissidence spoken o* it wa* not worthy of notice, as similar shades of difference existed amopg ell Protestants. He remarked also that Fre*m* somy is officially tecognlztd in many c "untried; andthtt in hi a nee a great digdtary of tbe Grown it at the head of the ori'er. A'. or some further discussion, the Grand Council decked ibat the bill should be ?ent to a eommi' tee composed of MM. Aatran Kour'e, Duioiir, Mermoz and l)uval. Lan Intelligence.
