This was the first prosecution under that law; and the followi g is the ie,timaony iu the case: Mr. Pronte, the deceiasedl, sent Mr. Throuet ;a insuthing challenge, which was ae't-pted.

Our statemeng iay derive ad.liional interest firom the fact, that some of our merchants have, during the present season, had he lead of Alisouri coined at the St Lms Mint. un der the nintagement of Air Siine, and have used it as an eastern retittance. finding it to answer a better purpose thain either eastern exchange, bank hills, or gold and silver. ''he folloving are among the details of the manufacturine opuerationts: Tie shot tower is oeu, hundred and fifty feet in height; the lead is drawn up from the river bank by horse power, in the top, and then melted. It is taken out in la dIes and'run through a single row orsmall holes in a horizontal line. which forms it into drops, and cools, before it strikes the water contained in a luge cistern below. It is then ladled out, put in a large sheet iron pan. atid (ried over a hot fire when thoroughly dried, it is lut into what is cal led a polishing keg; a small quantity of black lead is adderi, which by turning somu two or three hundre-d times gives it a bright,glossy appearance. It is then screen ed on tables and sizei-t.
