Tuk Work which more than any other Is making a Rendition this season is Mr. Dai win's book on "The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals," which will soon be published here by D. Appleton A Co. Mr. Darwin's discussions of the principles which control the actions of animals are really wonderful, if not always satisfactory. An instance is bis principle of antithesis, by which he mean* the relaxation or tension of muscles in ex pressing opposite feelings. He avgues that ex pressions in animals either result directly from serviceable acts or arc the indirect results of ser viceable acts, and he goes so lavas to assert that some forms of expression, at first useful, have be- , come nereditarv. His work is full of striking theo- > rles Ingeniously argued and It shows a singular 1 and profound knowledge of animal life, which can- j not but prove uaefttl In the study of the expression j of emotion. A New Volume relating to Lord Byron, edited < by Mr. H. S. Shulters-Young and published by j Bcntley, will soon be issued in London. It con tains many of Byron's letters never before printed, among them letters to bis mother which put his character in a pleasing light, so far as regards liJs affection for her. There are also letters to a Miss , evidently one of his lady loves, and un published letters from Keats, Shelley and Sir Walter Scott. Then follow "attributed" letters from Lord Byron to many distinguished persons, which are said to be very interesting and appar ently genuine. Bhiixaber's new book, "Partingtontan Patch work,'' being the latest miscellanies of humor from Mrs. Partington, will shortly be published by Lee A Shepard. The Trade?-Unionists of Mieftlcld are about to start a newspaper, to be called the Radical, It is Said that Mr. O. Smith, of the British Mu- , seum, has discovered among the Assyrian records | an account of a deluge similar to the one described | in Genesis. Mr. Smith will shortly read a paper on the subject of this discovery before the Society of , Biblical Archaeology. In the Theologw'al Review for October Mis?

BURNING OF THE STEAMER EMMA. CINCINNATI. Dec. 10. 18M The steamer Emma caught Are while on Shawnee town bar, below Kvansvllle, Ind., yesterday, and in ' a few minutes the whole forward part of her cabin was in names. The steamer Camella. wnich was coming up at the time, sent her yawls to assist in rescuing the passengers and crew, some of whom had been precipitated iu the water by the upsetting of the Emma's yawl. Two children and a woman were rescued as thev were sinking the last time. It is believed that all the passengers and crew were saved. The boat was totally destroyed and was valued at $12,000. Her cargo, consisting of furniture, whiskey and poultry, was probably worth $25,000. The insurance is unknown. BURGLARY IN GRAND STREET. At about four o'clock on Saturday morning a number of thieves entered the premises No. 240 firand street and stole a iiuantity or furs valued at $1,000.

Second Day's Proceeding*?The Prisoner's Coun sel Criticising the Preas?An Editor Threat* ened with Committal for Contempt?Testi mony for the People?A Review of Anderson's Habits?Scenes About His Death Bed?Mrs. Anderson's Actions. The trial or Dr. Lucius H. Irish for the alleged murder of Assistant Assessor Edward O. Anderson was resumed in the Court of Oyer and Terminer, Brooklyn, yesterday morning. The court room was crowded throughout the day. Previous to the opening of the regular proceed ings Mr. Tracy, of prisoner's counsel, said:?It be comes my duty to call the attention of this court to an article which I was pained to read In lu one of the Brooklyn papers last night on the subject of this trial. At the close of the proceedings of yes terday Your Honor cautioned this jury that they were not to allow any person to converse with them on the subject of this trial during the recess; but of what avail Is such an admonition as that from the Bench to the Jury If newspapers arc to be permitted to publish not only what transpires In the court room In regard to the trial (to which we have no objection), but Inter pose in these articles statements which are un true ; not only untrue In lact, but which are wick edly and maliciously talse. The article which I call attention to I affirm could have been written and published for no other purpose except in the hope of prejudicing this Jury against this de fendant, who Is now on tilal for his Hie. In a cause of this great Importance It seems to me that it becemes the duty of this Court to protect the administration of Justice from SUCH AN OUTRAGE as that which has been perpetrated upon It in the publication of this article. Not only are the state ments false, but this article contains a statement from a relative of the deceased which the writer of the article knew could never be Intro I duced In evidence before this Jury, and states in 1 the article that he knew It, and because it could not be Introduced before Jury legally, and because It could never be permitted to see light on this trial, it is surreptitiously published In this newspaper in the hope that some members of this jury would read it and be influenced by it, 1 ask this Court?1 call the attention of the Court to this proceeding?in the hope that it will take measures of its own mo tion to preserve the administration of justice fiom such influences as this during the pendency of this trial hereaiter, and I give notice, not onjy to the writer of this article, but to the editor of this paper, that U this offence is repeated I will move this Court that they be committed Kon contempt of the Court in publishing sucn articles as this. District Attorney Brltton?It does not perhaps become me to sn.v anything upon this subject, but 1 will make a remark. While it is true, in my judgment, that it was not in good taste or proper, uucler the circumstances of the case, that any pub lication other than the proceedings of the trial should take place In any newspaper, j?t I cannot believe that the inferences drawn by the learned counsel are correct. I cannot believe that the editor or writer of this or any other newspaper could possibly have any merest, much more any desire to prejudice any one In a case of this mag nitude and Importance to all the parties con cerned. 1 unite with the counsel my request that tfieic shall be no comments upon this trial nor upon the proceedings until the trial Is concluded. It would be a lair presumption that T1IIS JURY WOULD NOT READ ANYTHING upon this subject alter the caution expressed by the Court. 1 presume that none ot the Jurors have read a word that the counsel has referred to. Judge Pratt characterized the publication as very Improper and an unwarranted interference with the course of justice. If men are to pe tried at all they should have a fair and impartlaltrial by jury, and not be tried out of Court by the news papers. It Is NO NEW TniNO in the administration of justice. W hile I hold court If an'it her instance oi this kind occurs an at tempt mil be made to sec whether there is any law that will srivelpartica a fair trial in CourtBo! justice. The article referred to was the article of Mary I. llowelt sister of the deceased, before the Coroner 1Ui?\?tUHct Attorney Brltton then proceeded to open the tTto? the people at considers; e Atic? a nature that they wouln have to nnd a vei diet of irulHy of murder in the first degree or not Bullty.

Dr. Leyes, who was present at the house on the day of Anderson's death, described the indications about the suflterer, and stated that while he was absent going for Dr. Thayer Anderson died. On the cross-examination witness stated that the night previous he had put up a prescription for Anderson of one ounce or the solution of mor phia and live grains of the sugar of lead, and he presumed it was prescribed lor the purpose of controlling the vomiting, giviug freedom fToui pain, inducing sleep and allaying the irritability of the stomach. Dr. Irish wrote the prescription; it was repeated the next day; he saw Dr. Irish at his store the next day; wttue?s suggested a con tinuance of the giving of the champagne to Ander son. in reply to quest Ions as to MHH. ANOEKKON'S QOMDCOf on the afternoon or her husband's death, he slated that she was very alTectlouate, and received tho last recognition from hlui. Bernard Mulholland, or the Appraiser's office, In the Custom House, knew Anderson about eighteen months and never saw him intoxicated, but had seen him under the lnnueuce of liquor ubout once a week during the last lour months or his lile; he was at Anderson's house about llfteen minutes on the alternoon or his death aud talked with liliu; Andersou had a grilling in the stomach and vomited a little: Anderson aid not complain or uny pain on the previous Saturday when liy was in Kearney's. A recess was then taken uulil two o'clock, Jud?e Pratt cautioning the jurors not to rcud or converse ubout the case. After the recess undertaker Ucnung, who offici ated at Andersou's funeral on Friday, said he de livered the body to the baggage master at the Forty-second street depot, New York; be saw Mrs. Andersou at the house, when she manifested great grief. THE BEAD MAN'S RKOTI1 ICR. John P.

TUB 1'OST-MOHTKU EXAMINATION. Dr. A. W. Shepnrd, of 124 Willouphby street, a physician and surgeon of ten years' experience, made a post-mortem examination of Anderson's body on the 9th of May last. Professor Doremus and son, Coroner Whitehill and others were present. The Doctor proceeded to detail the re sult by the post-mortem and the removal of the stomach aud intestines. Professor Doremus took them aud removed the contents of the stomach for analyzatlon. The post-mortem showed that there was NO ORGANIC DISEASE perceptible. The aggregate ol symptoms described by other witnesses he had heard occurred In (uses of death from arsenic. At half-pant two o'clock Mr. Brltton said that Protessor Foreruns could not possibly attend that day, aud that he could not proceed any lurtlier lie lore he had examined the Professor, without break ing in on the line or proof he had established, and he was compelled to ask lor an adjournment. No objection was offered by counsel for defence, aud the Court thereupon adjourned until this morning at half-past nine o'clock. Dr. Irish Newark. It is a singular fact that scarcely a tragedy or occurrence of note takes place In which the city of Newark Is not in some way or other locally interested. It was from there poor Alice Bowlsby came. It was from there "Admiral" Nelson came. Two of the survivors of the ill-fated Missouri, sea men, also hall from there, and now It appears that Dr. Irish drags her Into his case. On the 10th or Inst April a gentlemanly looking Individual, with u lad.v dressed in black, visited the city anil stopped ut the Park House. He put his name on the register as Williams, and, on being reminded of Ills "wile In the parlor," added the words, "and lady." A boarder in the house, named Archer, who had been intimate with Anderson, said that he recog nized in the lady Mrs. Anderson and In her com panion Dr. Irish. As a consequence Aicherutid Mr. John Harbutt, proprietor or the hotel, have been summoned as witnesses for the ptosccutiou. SURVEYS IN THE PACIFIC.

Both are screw vessels ami arc classed in the nuvy list as second rates. Some time since the government; ordered a Board or Survey to examine into tho seaworthiness of several vessels, of the ships built during the war, including those which wi re com menced then and have been finished since its close, many were designed for special service and are not of a character suitable to our present needs; almost all were constructed hastily of unseasoned white oak timber aud several of these cannot be repaired to any advant ig?>. The Secretary of tho' Navy has declared that to spend money In the con-' stunt endeavor to keep tlieso ships afloat ia the most expensive way of maintaining a navy, slnco constantly increasing expenditure is answered by constantly decreasing results of good. The House of Hepreseutativcs hns acted upon his recomw ?Herniations, by authorizing the construction of six active cruisers, better adapted to the dutiea' and means of our navy. The two vessels above-' named havo, with others, been condemned as unseaworthy, and are to be disposed of as stated. Ql'Alt ANTINK SHIPS. The Albany with thu Delaware have been for some time used as hospital ships at Quarantine. A joint resolution of Congress, approved March 24, 1860, authorized the Secretary ol the Navy to place gratuitously at the d sposal or the Commissioners or quarantine or proper authorities or any port in the United States to be used for quarantine pur poses such vessels or bulks belonging to the United States, as were not required for other purposes. The sloops-of-war Saratoga and Portsmouth vv.-ro turned over to the New York Commissioners of Health, under this resolution, and were returned in September, same year, bciug no longer re quired. Subsequently the Albany was loaned to the lioatd. TOR SLOOP-OF-WAR ALBANY There Is a sad history connected with the name of Albany in the United states Navy, a sailing sloop-of-war of this name, carrying twenty-two nuns, was built and launched in New York during the year 1846. She was thu victim of one or thong ocean disasters which has left her cxact fate a mystery up to the present hour. Tills sloop was one of a class thai proved useful and economical In their day, but they have been thrown aside us unfit for active cruisers. The St. Marys, nuw on her way from Mare Island, Cat., to Norfolk, Va , ia one of the remaining ships: ol this description. The Albany was attached to the home squadron in 1854. She had visited the hshiug grounds in a case or emergency, and had also visited Greytown, Havana aud other West Indian ports. She sailed from Aspinwall September 29, 1S64, for New York, since which tirue nothing has been ever heard of ber. The most painful aiixtetv was ex perienced concerning her fate for mouths, and several vessels were sent to search, but no trace of the missing vessel could be found. A soveiv storm prevailed a lew days utter her departure from Asplnwail, and it is believed she toundcrcd during It with nil on board. Tne Albany had a crew or 126 men and the following officers, whoso names appear in the li t o< deaths in the Navy Register for 1855:??Commander, J. T. Gerry; Lieu tenants, William II Hleeeker, Montgomery Hunt, .1. 11. Adams aud Henry Kodgers; hutgeon, S. A. McCreery; Assistant Surgeon, Itlchard D. Cowman; Master, Itobert A. Marr; Purser, Nixon White; Midshipman, Bcnet J. Riley. TUB OONSTlTtn ION AND GI'IKKKERK. There are also associations connected with the name of Gnlerrere, but ol a very different nature from those of Ihe sloop Albany. The first impor tant battle ol the war ot 1812 was fought between the lingllEh frigateGulcrrere, Captain Dacres, forty-nlnu guns, and the United States ship Constitution. Com modore Hull, forty-ionr guns, In which the latter, alter an action or thirty minutes, compelled lib an tagonist to strike his nag. A previous action between the hssex and tUc English frigate Alert had a similar result, but the victory of Commodore Hull was the ilrst to establish the superiority of American pluck mid skill over the British at sea on equal terms. The engagement took place off the American coast August 20,1312,011 the route now taken by steamers naming between New York and Liverpool. The vessels fought at half pistol shot distance. A prize crew was placed on board tho captured ship and tiex; day it was found that thu (interfere had six feet of water In her hold. She was set on fire and abandoned. Commodoro Hull, in his report, says that "so fine a slup, com manded by an able and experienced officer, Had been totally dismasted and otherwise cut to pieces so as to make her not worth towiug into port in the short space ot thirty minutes," was a matter of praise to the country, lo perpetuate the memory ol ihe victory a line forty-lour gnu frigate, chris tened the Guerriere, was built tu Philadelphia and launched in ihh. Site lay lor many years in ordi nary at Norfolk and was finally broken up. Tho Albany, winch Is to be sold next Thursday, was built towards the dose or the war and was last em ployed In the North Atlantic fleet: the Guerriere was also built towards the end or the war. She was the flagship ol ih.*?<outh Atlantic fleet in 18t>7, and was sent fo the European station in 1870. Her last cruise was rather unfortunate, having gone ashore several times in the Mediterranean. It is said she will lie purchased for Henry Meiggs, the great South American railroad contractor. THE MUTUAL BANK RUN. The Rnn Sl*?rly KnilrU and Dcpoalta Hrlng Made Yeatei-day?Ita Tratiwc^ liona With Ihc Chatliam Hank. The course pursued by the Chatham Bantf towards the Mutual Hank, upon which a run wutf begun on Saturday, seems to have areated much' sympathy In financial circles for the officers of the Mutual, who were thus placed in very perplexing difficulties. The admission of the Chatham Haulc officers that they believe the Mutual to be solvent has, to a great extent, restored eotifW' dence In the ability of their unioi tunnte' victim to pay all demands against it, and yesterday there was but#little excitement abeul the countcig. About twenty small de positors witudrew their deposits while a number 01 business men made deposits as usual. The" officer? ot the bank report that on Saturday last, having live vacancies to lill in the Hoard or Direct* ors, and business men, In au<l about Kroadway and Astor place having expressed a willingness to act, a meeting was being hold for the purpose of filling these vacancies While the deliberations were on the action of the Chatham (tunic In declining ta act aN their clearing agent fell upon them like a thunder-dap, and oi course they adjourned with out Ailing the vacancies. Wnen Mr. lliii sought an explanation of the cashier of the Chatham lie reports that that official assured him he had not given them a notice of their purposed action, fear ing that they would not ?'end down their Krldav'a exchanges. President Hill declares that they ha<( lullllied all their obligations to tnc Chatham flunk. They have a deposit of $;6,uoo with this Institution to cover their clearances. The open account be tween the two institutions, he asserts, shows no justification for the course of the Chatham. But once bad tliey overdrawn their account beyond U>,ooo. This was on November 30, when there was a balance of $22,414 against the Mutual. This was reduced by $20,000 be.ore the close of the da?, leaving $2,414 to run over to next day's account. He exhibited the account to the re porter, who examined it for the entire period, covering several months, and the highest sum lound standing against the Mutual over night was 1*1,800. This sum, of course, deducted from the >76,000 collaterals 0/ the Mutual held by their dear* lng agent, would leave a balance of $?9,4oo in favor of the Mutual Bank. Mr. Hill s'ates that this daily acconnt has frequently shown the Chatham BauK debtor to them In from $2ft,ooo to $30,000 on thlf account at the close or a day's transactions, ami he cannot understand why tney have been so uu\ ceremoniously treated In the matter. Negotiation* were In progress yeaterday that the officials nope will eventuate In securing clearing house accom modations from another bank. If successful the Mutual will continue business as usual, ir toe* are crushed for want of a clearing Wnt there cm be little doubt of their ability te meet all their 00 ligations.
