In accordance with this suggestion of the Court, on Friday tho 2d inst., Mr. Williamson's counsel presented a petition. Is did not however meet tho wishes of Judiro Kane, nnd be reserved it fur con-linhu,,mn siderntion. Tho Tribune reports tho subsequent proceedings as fullows : When this petition was presented, the district attorney contended that tho word "legnlly" nhoutd ho inserted, so ns to make Mr. Williamson ndmit that ho was legally incarcerated, w hich, of course, ho would never have done. But so desirous w as JudgcKano of extricating himself Irom the do testable position in which he,stood,that he overrul ed the proposal and allowed tho petition to pass as it vvas.Tlicn Mr.Williamsoii was required to answer why he had not produced tho bodies of Jano John son and her children us required by tho original writ. To this interrogatory his reply now was simply "Because it was impossible.'' Hero again the district-attorney sought to go further and com pel him to answer whether ho would have produ ced tl.cm had it been possible, but this tho Judge also excluded, and upon this answer released the prisoner. Tho case then stands thus : Mr. Williamson wns adjudged guilty of contempt of court, and was even declared by the Judgo to be guilty of perjury, because he had made oath that Jane John son nnd her sons were not in his custody, where lore lie could not produce them. After b ling held in prison for such contempt for the period of three months uud ono week, he is at last allowed to amend his former answer by ma king oath simply that be did not produce those persons "Because it was impossible to do so." With regard to the essential identity between these two answirs, comment is needless.

JUBILANT. i - Some of the Bndical Abolitionists are quite jubilant that they held a three days meeting in Boston and but one of the Garrisonians entered tho lists w ith them. He wns treated with such severity, that none of his associates dared even to come to his reft tie. So we learn from the Era correspondent. The follow ing is from a report of the meeting as we find it in Frederick Donglau' Payer. Tiii'rsdav, Oct. G. Yesterday nflcrnocn, fie subject under discussion wns"the constitutionality of slavery." A scries of resolutions were passed condemnatory of tho usurpation of slavery over tho originarfntcnt of that instiuincnt. 1'iederick Douglass expressed his surprise that here in Boston they were tbliged to answer obieetions to their i views, instead of meeting those who wore tho rep resentatives ot disunion in debate. Our platform, he said, is free. Why do not the abolitionists of Boston embrace the opportunity to discuss tho questions of tho dissolution of the Union and tho character of the Constitution 1 In Central and Western Xew Yoik, where nnti slavery meetings are held by disunionists on a frco platform, they are always met iu discussion. Why do they not reciprocate this practice in Boston, where the great leaders of views opposed to ours reside? Lewis Ttirpnu said lo wns t.ot nt all surprised. ho ever heard of n mariner who would run his ship to the leeward of another which would tako tho w ind out of his sails? We cannot, 'io said, expect these man to come here for deenpi- tation. J hey do this voluntarily.

J. B. M'Cuhmic. The narrative of this gentle man on our first page, affords another alarming evidence of the servility ol our northern state officials. Governor Wright, like the Supreme Judges of Pennsylvania, seems to think it bis only business to seive the slaveholders. Apparently ho has no idea that it is any part of his business 1 to protect citizens of Indiana against even tho most fligrant nnd insolent outrages of slavoholding. Governor Wright, eomo months since married a Kentucky lady, and for might wo know, also a plantation of slaves. At any rate, his determina tion to surrender Mr. M'Cormio to the Kentucky Governor indicates clearly that lie supposes his interest to lie among the plantations.
