The somewhat disgraceful disturbance at Forrest Hall a few nights sinee, continues to be the theme cf considerable talk among us. crimination and recrimination has become pretty general too among some of the parties 1.1 Y* e,iher d.'r?c,iy ?r indireotly connected with it. W? think, however, that the Shortest way to settle it would be to let the whole mat ter drop, and say no more about it. Certainly we can see no good that can possibly result from any further agitation of it. ?Sewal of the parties who were engaged in the affair mentioned above were arrested on Saturday last by the police and taken before Justice Reaver who held them to bail for their appearanoe at oourt. ihe newly appointed levy oourt assembled on Saturday last in the hall of toe Board of Common Council, and organiied by the elec tioni of L? wis Car berry, President, and the ven erable John Mounts Secretary and Treasurer.

Death from want of attention." The evidence In both oases is of a ehiraoter that precludes its publication; but the gi?t of the whole is summed up in the following ab stract ot the verdict of the jury in the case of the infant. The jury find that the said infant came to its cea*h by the wilful and oruel neglect of its mother, Sujannah, and its grandmother, ?Mer garet Tatsapaugh, having been wrapped in paper, placed in a barrel, covered wi--h an old flannel shirt, in *n out house from 7 c'clook R m., on Wednesday, the 9th, to 1 o'clock, p' m., on Thursday, the 11th, and then taken by V.e sni Margaret Tatrapaugh, and placed into ihe custody ol a free negro woman, named Uradspaw, in whose keeping it died tit 4 o'clock p m , on Th-rsday, the 10th instant Ihe oa*e excites much attention, and will, it Is said, lead to developments yet more strange.
