On Wednesday efternron the 10th of Juno, a young man of the name of Ox ford, made nn attempt to shoot the Queen and Prince Albert, as they were proceeding up Con stitution Hill for their evening ride.

On the arrival of tho phaeton ubout 150 yards up the road, from the cornel of the Palace against which the garden wall ubuta, the report of lire-arms was heard to proceed from tho right hand side near llm palings of the flreen Park, exactly opposite to the back of the mansion of Lady (lot- don. The Prince, who, it would seem, had heard the whistling of tha ball, turned his head in the di ruction from which tho report eamo, and Her Ma jesty at the same instant rns up in th carriage, but Prince AIIhtI as suddenly pulled her down by his aide.

By accounts received by the New York Journal of Commerce, we leant that the cloops of win Vinceiinos and Peacock, of the Exploring Kxpcilition, arrived at .Sydney, :Seiv Stouth Wales, on the 12th of March last, having made the important discovery of a Continent in the Antarctic regions along the coast of which they cruised for fifty-six degrees of longitude. Land was first seen on the 19th of January in latitude fit! 20 south, longitude 151 18 east, nail they followed it to longitude 01 45. Owing to the great quantity of ico and ice-bengs, and boisterous weather, it was found impossible lo piled a landing, nnd therefore it is not as yet, known whether this continent will ho of liny benefit to commerce and mankind.

There has just been placed in my hands an anonymous circular, in answer to which I hereby lay before you the follow ing reply, and 'ask you to examine the same without prejudice, or partiality. On the 28th inst. 1 addressed to you a circular in which 1 explained by irrc- fragiblc proof the condition ol the Jail nnd the manner in which, prisoners were treated. In that circular I produced the statement of T. J. True, who is the Coro ner and a Constable of the county, and if you will again take the trouble to read Mr. Truc's statement, you will not be long coming to the conclusion as to the person who attempts to mystify Mr. Walker s anonymous ulack-ballcrs or my self. I also laid before you a statement of Dr. llurlburt.showing that every prin ii ... i .i i ii ciptc oi nuinamiii reuuireu uku i snouiu act as I did. Several voters of Indian Creek Precinct having called upon mc to make a state ment in relation to the solvency of Mr. Lavinia's hail,' I cheerfully comply with their request. The Ihil Hond was drawn up bv Selh 11. Farwcll, and the secure- ties are James Glover, Luther Woodard niti! W. F. Flagg. James Glover and Luther Woodard having been sworn by Joseph 0. Glover, Esq. as to the amount of their property end its suposcU valuation declared that they were each worth five tlmiisnn.l dollars. Mr. I avrST was Hot sworn. In addition to the solvency of the Securities, Mr. Lavinia, by deed, convoyed to the said securities, porperty worth about five thousand dollar more. I acted, I persumc, as Judge Ford would, had ho approved tlie Dona in person No officer should succomb to public fee lin". when this feeling originates more from mission than reason. Neither shouhl ho refuso a prisoner his lega rights, simply because public opinion, for the time being, is against him. No man should be deprived of his liberty but for the public good i und when he meets th requisitions of the law, he should, without further delay, be restored to his liberty, his family and his home. The duty of an ofliecr is found in the law of the land, and in some cases his own sound discre tion; and without favor or pariiality his motto should be : the. Luc, the whole lair and nothing but the hue. An overwee ning desire to please the community on the one hand, and tin hauuhty overbearing course nf conduct on the other, are the S'-ylla and Chary bdis, upon which officers irenerally Shipwreck. And alter you have examined thu facts, I wish you to say whether I have discharged my duty. Respecting the dilliculiic.-.belvcen .Mr. Luviuia and .Mr. l'anvcll, I have nothing to do, and leave the law to adju dicate their irricveuei s. In the said anonymous circular is pre sented an affidavit, signed by J5cnj. 15. Reynolds, nnd sworn to before Jabcz Fitch, Laeheif and Generalissimo to the Walker family, nnd who, assisted by his instruments, is always found ready to rally the Walker Sipiadroil when their IDOL is in danger. With Mr. Rey nolds, at present, 1 am not upon terms of intimacy, and where he is known, I would not turn on my heel to contradict a thous and of his affidavits. Ifn::y person wish es to know who, and what he is, I refer him to 1). Newton, hrother-in-Iawi to one of my competitors, and to every other citizen of Ottawa who knows him. About the 1st of March of the present year, i loaned to i,co. w . Armstrong anil Simon Crosiar two hundred and seventy live dollars at twelve per cent interest, save that sum, I have never lent to (!. W. Armstrong or Win. I ). Armstrong any sum of money, drawing interest. To both of these gentlemen I have lent and borrowed money, but neither of us has ever exacted (l itii.ns I ii.avc received iivtn anil extended 1 1 other euizons of this town. In relation h3 i.V mnucy mentioned by Mr. Reynolds, thtse arc !hc facts: William S. Sayer recovered in the La S-Ue Circuit Court a Judgment against Chaik'S Campbell and Sylvanus Crook, upon whir'i Judgment execution was issued. CharJ'is Chanipbcll, at two sund ry payments, seized the amount; and here I would digress by saying, that it is not the duty of a Slien'n w'Vn he collects money to pay it to the Clerk ln:,t l'lc Clerk is entitled to, is his offij le''S no person is entitled to receive the i;joir?V' but the plaintiff or his attorney, because the law requires the Sherilf to have the money ready, when demanded by the plaintid or his agent, and were the Sheriff to pay money over to tlie Clerk and he prove defaulter, the SherilV and his Secu rities must make good the deficiency. Thus much in explanation of what Jabcz Filch, J. 1. and his compeer slvle "the proper ollieer." Some time during the month of February, A. 1). 1S3D, Messrs.

When I gave them tho money I at the same time took from each a reciept, by which they agreed to pay tho sunn stated to the said Ihtttcrfield fc Collins. Win. F.

To all whom these presents shall come, 0 U FETING : Whereas, it has been made known to me that at the last November term of the Circuit Court, holdeu in and for the coun ty of La Salle, James Mahoney was con victed on two several indictments, for keeping a disorderly house, and was sen tenced in each case to pay a fine of twenty-five dollars. And Whereas, it has been further rep resented to nie by tlie petition of the said James M ihoney, and Sheriff and Clerk id' the Circuit Court of said county, and Thomas Ford, Judge of tho Circuit Court before whom the convictions were had, that the said James Mahoney is very poor and entirely destitute of property or nieans wherew ith to pay said lines, and that he has a wife and three children dependant upon him for support, and that he is a proper subject for executive clemency.

People vs. Frank Far- rcll. Respecting this charge, I will here state what is known to many in the com- munily,that he is a poor man; yet in part wynicnt of the fine and cosls, he has fur nished furl for the court during court time, and paid the State's Attorney fee, and as soon as he is able, he will pay the bal ance. He is not like some of the 44 Ma ny citizens anil 44 l wo r.tnissaries who secrete their properly to avoid the pay ment of their honest debts; nor vet like ibis set of yelping Hyenas who stand ready to destroy the character of every lonorablu man in the community. 1-cl ow citizens, I would not have paid so much attention to the anonymous thing, nit from the fact that it was concocted in the store of Walker and Sanger. Had Mr. Walker confined his electioneering to that course of honorable competition, ac ted upon by every gentleman, I certain ly would not complain, but when a can didate will urge his claim for election on the ground that my present securities to gether with mysell, are not worth the sum stated in my bond, to wit, $10,000; and that if I were to be cleeted I would not be dUIh to give hail; I say 44 he stoops to conquer." Who is this great man that his tools and minions nre afraid will be beaten ! Why, he is a bunker i. e a script maker, a wealthy merchant," and who is abundantly abln to give good and sufl'tcicnt bail. Why this man has more shoe blacks at his command, than an eas tern king in the days of yore, had jack asses. Yc, lie is rich and with his script can hire emissaries, like so many evil spirits, to perambulate the county, attend camp meetings, pervert times consecrated to Keligion, into electioneering hobbies, and urge upon the good citizens of the county, to confer upon his honor that justice which (hoio modest) his merits ueserve. Had I consulted my own feel ings I would not have noticed the anony. mous bantling, for I hold it to be good philosophy that we should rather pity those who, like a ground hog, hide from thel.ght of day, & attack us, than chastise them. As long as Mr. W. only brings lorward his many citizens" and his "two emissaries" ensconced under ficti tious cognomens, 1 shall consider their at tacks unworthy my notice, for with those men that belong to the genus of the mouse and bat, lhold no communion and shall have nothing to do with them; as I shall view their assaults with the same feeling as I would the drops which full from the skunks tail ; and to 44 many citizens" and 44 two emissaries," I would say as the sun sai 1 to the pyramid, as lie hid his bold head behind the western horizon, 44 leave you to your own last reflections and if at any subsequent time you should deem it a duty which you owe the com iiiuuily, to again assail me, do not veil yourselves as cowards, but come out like men so that nc way know who you are, and how much credence to attach to your statements, Voters of La Salle county ! why were tiot these charges preferred against nic until within four days of the election ; tho answer is at hand -they knew them t'J be false, while they expected to im pose upon the credulity of the communi ty. I 'aijiikks, will you be imposed upon by some h:h' dozen Ottawa loafers and pettifoggers who when their Dayton clans-' man winds hs horn, like hungry hound yelp at their master's bidding.
