Oo her arrival oil Woosung the U. S. ship
Levant was discovered ashore on the north

got off without having su*t;ii:ied any ap

The C. S. ship* Portsmouth arrived on the
I3*h ol July at Woosung, last from Hang

Com. Armstrong states that his principal
reason tor leaving Hong Kong wa% that the
greater portion of the senior officers of the
San Jacinto, himself among the number,
were sutfring very severely !rum the disease
incidental to that climate, and it wa* deemed
absolutely necessarv that they thonoi seek a

I do not propose to pr 1 >ng the controver
sy in legard to the small note i.-Mie-, or the
action ot the grand jury, in relation tl ereto,
b it 1 may be allowed to say that some whose
! mission it should be to tty to supervise and
1 keep in order the affairs of the citv, have
mit this controversy upon a false is-urt.
The question is not, nor has it been,
whether or not the i-*ue of the-e small
notes is in violation of trie law, but whether
the casrt was such a on * as to call for the in
| terffrerice of the gran 1 jury.
It never lias been denied, so far as I am
; aivi-ei, by any one, that the parties issuing
.... r i I ^ _
or oiionug a noiy ui a »v?? u ■u>>iiiiw.»viwu
t >an ti\c dollars, isr** liable to a line :*! ten
dollar?, to be recovered by motion btf* re any
Justice of tht l\*ac\ or before any Court in

tended that tbe -tatute defines the mode of
• proceeding n >t to be bv presentment or in
dictmtuit before n grand jury, but by motion
up 11 li t n uiati >n » t tlio-e who \vi nId bt en
titled to one half the fine or pen lity.
It is true, the Attorney of tli^ Common
' wealth believed it to be hi? doty to bring tlie
; matter to the attention of tne grand jury,
hot it is equally true, that lawyers like d«»e
! tors, some iiti.es differ in opinion, and a- in
j other cases, *o in thi-, intelligent members
of the professi m differed ia their views upon
tbe su'fj ct.
lo tu.s view of thecas?, it was exceeding
ly harsh and offensive toward the grind
jury, to attempt to forestall their judgment,
bv declaring, as w is done by some i Hid *us
person, that the only way to e-cape from the
penally incurred by tne l-sue ol these small
notes, was i/ithetr]>< /jury, before Cvor.pl lin
ing ot the impel lection of others, the person
referred to si* >uli be certain ol being tn
I court with clean hands himself. Whi n a
man essays to assail other?, he may expect to
be assailed.
Tne at tide referred to, is a very poor jus
tification of previous stricture*.
A CITIZEN.
[COMMIXICATED.
That the recent issue of small n >tes by
o.ir Corporation was illegal, is undeniable,
bur that it was necessarily cognizable by the
Grand Jury, is more questionable. The law
expressly declares, that the fine shaM “be re
covered before any joslU'C or court, irrespec
tive of the Grand Jury.
We are, moreover, very gravely informed,
Gy tbo-e claiming to be very astute a* to the
law, “that the is?ue of an unouthonz d note
of aufj denomination, shall be punished by
imprisonment That this law, for which
cha •. i‘J8, seo. IT, is given, applies to either
toe C> rpomtion or it* officer, I deny. Tne
law says that “every free person or officer of
such person” who sg does, shall be s> treated.
As the Corporation is not a “person’’ it can
not be “imprisoned,” nor can its “officer.” as
he does not represent a “person.” Such is
the reliability of sum ? people’s quotations of
! law, and of the deductions based upon such
quotations. LAW.

: —The venerable Mr. Cusiis, of Arlington,
die 1 ht his residence in this county, on Sat
urday last. The whole country knew hitn
and his patriotism will long be remembered.
Closely allied to the AY ashington family,
fond ot calling himself the child ul Mount
Y’ernon, he was never so much in his ele
ment as when he was talking or writing of
the Great Chief, and the M.n and Times of
the Revolution. As be said of himself once,
“his was the destiny of no common man”—
for he had been fondled on the knee of the
Father of his Country, and received from
Inui the kindness of a parent, lie repaid
that care aud affection with filial devotion,
and to the day of his death, all the recollec
tions of his life centred around or radiated
from, the time when lie was one of Wash
ington’e family, lie lived to a g">i o;d ag*%
retaining his mental faculties to the last.—
Though Mr. Cu-tis was never in public life,
lit? was in bis younger days an eb quont and
effective speaker, and bad a find nos for ora
tory as long as he was able to gratify tho-e
who constantly called on him to make pub
lic addresses.
