Th" new S tfe 0a >ioet having he-a appointed in Albany, anu'th'1 aerrucracy thus far having carried every thing their own way, the next imoortant question on the "Slate" is the S;ate Printer, or State Barber, an office certainly fatter and better than the whole cabinet rolled into one. According to all appearances, the venerable office ot Stale Ba'ber, including the "Slate," and its perquisites, will be abolished a? a monopoly and central power that has been too long in existence. Ibe value of this office has generally been estimated at 8100,000 per annum, of which $23,000 or $30,000, arc clear pro fits? or fat, as printers call it. This amount of = < lid spoils is greater than the fat of the whole State cabinet put together. For many years, ur.d-r the old Regency, Edwin Croswel!, held tills cff.ce until he vi as ousted by the whige.und Thurlow Weed put in h;s place, as being in possession of ker iter razors and more soap suds. It is now believed that a complete change will be made in the office?that it will be divided among the various printers and editors of the republican party? ami that the existence of a central newspaper power at Albany will be abolished forever. We do not see why it should not. Throughout the State, there is a variety of deseiviag men, con neetec with the newspaper presa who are lank, lean, and hungry, ami it would be charity and justice to divide tiie spoils in ronte reasonable aud particular way, so as to till up the crevices in their tenements of flesh. It i?, therefore, pri p.ised to give the publication oi the legul notices to a newspaper in Albany, and to throw open the printing of legislative documents to the whole profe;sion? and the lowest bidder. This would scent to be equitable?but whatever is agreed upon, we hope the parly will avoid Che name errors that have overwhelmed the whigs? (hat is waste and extravagance in barbers, soapsuds and razors We are in favor of a well kept, snug, shaving shop, a smart State bather, a neat pole hung out,clean towels, sweet soap suds, keen razors, and a slate always open for the names of deserving men to be written thereon?in short, good government, from any party in power. The Triumphal Progress or Boz.?The pro. great* of the great Boz through New England, shakes every element of society like a literary and intellectual earthquake. The G vtmor of Massachusselts accompanied him to.Worcester, where he remained some time over the Sabbaih, aud received the congratulations oftho wondering people. From Worcester h? set out on Monday, and arrived at Springfield, where he took beat aud came down to Hartford on Tuesday ?r.Wcdnesday. Here he dined, and eat chicken. On Saturday we expect him by the new Haven boat at 2 o'clock. He arrives at the foot of Beekman or Fulton street, where we recommend the 100,000 people of New York to congregate and receive his literary highness. Boz has taken apartments at the Carlton House, on the north side of the great Broadway ridge, and thus is damned forever the Astor, the City, the Waverley, and particularly the Terrapin Lunch, lie has had set aside for him and his excellent lady a parlor, drawing room, and two bed-rooms looking on Broadway and Leonard street, with a small muint into the blue heaven. He will dine alter nately in in vite, and at the tabled' holt. Me holds his knife iu his right hand and his fork in his left? and, what is equally interesting, he eats his soup with a spoon, stooping down a little to catch it without burning himself. Bot wears his hair somewhat long aud classical. It is a beautiful auburn, and mucb admired by the ladies. The preparations for his reception here are going on wonderfully.

A resolution was ollrred at .he Board, to appoint a committee to make n reply. .;r.d to counteract the inlluencs of the Court of n ?t i h at Albany.

The 9rm* !?.<? Elowexft.?This singular affair continue# (o be the talk of every circle. A Washington letter, now before us, gives us the annexed aceouit of the young ady's ortuneand family Wxshieotox, Feb. 7,1841. So far as the facts have transpired, iu Uns city, where the parent and relatives now are, they air these; Col. W. Croghan, of Pittsburgh,Pennsylvania, sonte twelve or fifteen mouths since, placed his only daughter at the school, fn order to complete her educntion in all the accomplishments neces-ary for a young lady of her immense wealth, she being the sole heiress of all the property of the late Mr. O'Haru, of Pennsylvania, embracing, it is said, over fifty acres af land, now covered with houses, in the heart af the city of Pittsburgh, with a revenue arising out of the same to the amount of gfjO.OOt) or $70,000 per annum; the sole m stress of which enormous estate the lady in question becomes, on her arrival at legal age The young lady is under fifteen years of ace, very, very beautiful, and promising in her intellectual powers, so far as her extreme youth has made the development. The father is now in this city, at the reridence of his brother-in-law, Col. Jessup, of the United States Anny, in a state bordering upon dis traction,and caliiug iorth the sympathy oi this whole community. Petitioh to the LegISLXI ujtk jlo aiest the Meat Mo.nosolt-? We understand that the following peti tion ha* been" forwarded to Albany, and addressed To nit Hoi*, mt Legislature of the State of New York : The petition of the undersigned, residents of the city of New York, respecifully seta jorth? That the Common Council of said city were authorised, by a State law passed April 9, 1813, to restrict the right of selling meats within their juris diction to such persons only as they might see tit to license, and also to confine the sale of meats to such places only as they might designate. That ihey have, by rirtue of said law. restricted the legal right to retail fresh beef tn this city to three hundred persons, more or less; and also decreed that this right! be exercised only in some twelve or fifteen specified places. That, in consequence of the monopoly thui established, our citizens are forced to pay a private tax, probably exceeding half a million of dollars, as iiproved by the following facts:?Any given weight of beef not only contains more bone and less nutriment than an equal weight of pork, but beef is also reared and fattened at less cost than pork ; tor while the ox pays for its keeping by its labor, and the cow by iis milk, the bog, being a non-producer, is of no use or service to mankind until butchered, and gives no remuneration for its keeping but its flesh ; accordingly, in the country towns of our State, where the trade in both beef and pork is left free and unrestricted, the latter generally, if not uniformly, commands the higher price. Hut here, the trade in pork being free, while the trade in beeY is restricted, pork s teak sells for 8d. a pound, and beef steak for Is , being a difference of \i. the contrary wayNow, as our city contains 300,000 inhabitants, and as the price of each pound ol fresh beef we eat is enhai.ced -Id. by the mon< poly above mentioned, if we suppoee the average consumption to be only one pound to each person per week, the tax paid in fitiy-two weeks would amount to 17s- 44- per head, or just $(&:>,000 in the aggregate per annum (The smne result may also be demonstrated thus:? Last fall, when beef was selling on board the sloops at &'3.o0 to $4 per cwt , our privileged retailers stilt exacted 6d. a pound for soup pieces, and Is. for the best cuts, making the average price about 9J ; thus exacting a profit or tax of 5d. on the pound, and getting considerably more for the mere labor of cutting up and selling an ox, than our fanners asked for rearing, fattening and bringing it to market) That the main argument adduced to justify said restrictions is, that but for thein w e should have bad aud unwholesome beef imposed upon us, to the great eudangerment of our health and of our precious jives. But as we have for years shown our capacity to purchase not only pork, but even sausages, without the supervision of legal guardians, we cannot doubt that we have sufficient sagacity to protect ourselves from any tuinous imposition in the purchase of our beef, provided the trade in that commodity should be thrown open to all ; and we therefore pray for the repeal of so much of said act of 1813, as authorises the restrictions herein complained ol?rcs'rictions, the absurdity of which excites contempt, and their injustice, indignation. Ana your petitioners, as in duty bonnet, will ever pray. No News kh(m Boston.?The steamer New Haven, from Providence, beat liarnden ?3c Co yesterday nearly an hour. Through Mr. Mulliken, ol the steamer, we received Boston papers two hours in advance of the mail, and through Harnden ?Sc Co , one hour in advance. No news, however. But both have our thanks. An Extraordinary Climate.?Cold weather ib upon U9 now, and consumption too. Yesterday morning the mercury was down to 17 degrees, a deference of 45 degrees in thirty-six hours. Increase in the number of deaths of consumption in 1841, over those of the previous year, 174. With such changes in the weather as the above indicates what will be the increase this year! Lord Morpeth ?A Boston lady, speaking of this distinguished visiter, says, " 1 was charmed with his deportment at our Anti-Slavery Fair. It was natural, uitbflected, gracefully self-forgetful. It was, in fact, republican in its best sense. He spoke with the highest respect of reformers, as being the first aud greatest; and evinced a desire to inform himself of the whole history of the rise and progress of ourenterptise. He gave his autograph without reluctance and without pretension; with no artificial effort to diminish or increase its value." COBRELIUS V. S iioosevels vs GeORCE II. SlEmon.?This case, decided by the Vice-Chancellor at his last motion day, was not fully reported in onr paper of yesterday. The application was made by the defendant, Stemon, again.-1 a co-defendant, E. Miller. The mortgaged premises had been sold to E. Miles. He had assumed ihe payment of the mortgage. As he neglected to pay the interest, the mortgagee filed his bill to foreclose the mortgage, nnd Mr. Siemon then made this motion for a receiver against Mr. Miles. It was denied, because Mr. Siemon did not sweur absolutely to the insolvency of Miles. The Bask CoaimissIonkrs ?The New York Banks I have presented a memorial to the legislature, demanding an investigation into the mal-conduct of the Bank Commissioners, during the last year.

Dreadful Situ at?oi?.?The sloop Monitaof Rahway, Captain Day, went ashore in the gale on Tuesday night, on the Hast Bank. There were three persons on board at the time. They lashed themselves to the rails, and there remained till yesterday morning with the thermometer down to 10 degrees, the sea making a clear brtach over, and completely encasing them in ice. And they would undoubtedly have perished in that dreadful situation, had not Captain Fountain, of the steamer Hercules, gone to their assistance. Too much praise cannot be awarded to Captain F , Mr. Palmer, the engineer, and Owan McKee, for their exertions in this instance. They saved the men in a small boat, in which they boarded the sloop whilst the wind was blowing almost a gule. Chatham Theatre.?That sterling drama, the Mechanic and the Queen, continues to draw full houses. The active manager, although having brought out three new pieceain as many weeks, has several other* in preparation, which will shortly be produced.

Court of Oy*r and Terminer. This court met yesterda v, to dispose of the case of the celebrated coffee indictment, and a second indictment growing oat of that one The pork indictment, for some unknown cause, was not saat up for trial- There was some curiosity to see how the coffee libel would turn out, and the eourt room was about two thirds full At half past tea. Judge Kent and Aldermen Purdy and Lee entered and took their toatsMr. Wbitisc called on the case of James Gordon Bennett. JohwA - Morrill then rose nnd said, that Judge Noah had arrived in New York the day before, and he had written to and received an answer from him, in relation to a nollt prosequi being entered on each of ihe indictments ; Judge Noah had replied that he wa6 perfectly willing the matter should take that course, aa far at lie was concerned, and that Judge Noah was now in court, connected with this application Judge Noah?As far as I am individually concerned, 1 am perfectly willing that a nolle prosequi should be entered in'these cases. Indeed, from the first I had no feeling or interest in this matter- It was first brought on, as I understood at the request of one of the petit jurors (Cyrus Chenery)?he made the complaint. And ao far as I am concerned, I am willing to have it settled thus. The whole affair has undoubtedly arisen out of a long editorial quarrel, in which violent attacks were made on both sides, n..u?.... i u. I.U:_I. .1 auu I^iuapo * UU^IK lu cay iliai 1 HI I u IV lUC iraiauw of the aggression was oil my part. Therefore,I have no desire to injure Mr. Bennett, or press this matter farther against him; but am willing for myself that a nolle prosequi should be entered. Mr. Morhell then moved the Court that a nolle prosequi be entered on each indictment. The C..0kt said, thatby the revised statutes, the Court had not the power to order a nolle proeequi to be entered in such cases, but that, if, with regard to Judge Noah, the District Attorney made the application, the Court could then grant it or not, as they thought proper. Still, in the case of Judge Lynch, the Court saw nothing to prevent the trial gsing on Mr. said that hisdutv was a very simple and clear one; and that he could not feel authorized to apply for a nolle prosequi in the case. Mr. Mohhell then read an affidavit of Ja?. Gordon Bennett, denying the validity of the indictment, inasmuch as Judge Lynch, one of the parties interested,charged the jury in relation to this case, which was in opposition to the provisions of the statute. He uleo read a notice of motion to the District Attorney to have the indictment quashed, on the grounds set forth in the affidavit. Mr. M- then read the law on the subject from p. 257, 2d vol. Revised Statutes. Judge Kent?The Court can see no reason to quash. The law very wisely prevents a Judge sitting in a case where he is interested, hut does-not reach this case. Mr- Wmri.vo?We shall present the fact that the indictment was sent here on the 10th September, and is in prnoer form. Mr. Morrill?Well, sir, we ask the Court to note the objections that have been presented, as we shall reserve the right. We admit that Jas Gordon Bennett was proprietor and editor of the New York Herald, and suppose the case must go to the jury. A jury was then empanelled The Cocrt told Mr. Morrill he had the right to move in relation to his exceptions hereafter Mr. Whitiro then staled to the jury the c rcutnstances under which the indictments were found, which he truly remarked, were rather extraordinary. The indictments were found the l!)tbof July, seut into this Court the 10 li of September far trial; or the 27th Mr B-nnett pleaded uot guilty, and they are now brought"on for And" we h ive now, gentlemen, the singular spectacle of oae of the veiy parties complaining, one ol the j.i iges, said to be libelled, coming into Court, to ask for a nolle prosiqui to be entered, confessing that he also has litiHied others considerably,and that perhaps at that busmen lie has done the most. 1 have no disposition to fiud fault or quarrel with this opinion of the Judge ; he ought to know best; and at the same time, 1 do not wish it to be understood that I have any feeling or interest in pressing this matter; rather th;- reverse. I have no wish that Mr. Bennett should b - punished for this matter; or that it should be thought 1 h it the District Attorney is opposed to one of the Judges? to have a person punished for an alleged otl-nre when one of the Judges confesses he has committed the most of those offences, and that perhaps he began the battle, and there is still a balance of abuse due to him yet. Bat still I think this is not the proper lime for such an application to be made. Whether this is a matter in which the Judge thinks k~ 1.... -...i.I.?1 M. ? __ ? Itw lino ouiiikit ui i j puiiimra 1UI. DCIIUCU U[ HOI, M can't undertake to say. But there are some statementsniade by the Judge that requires correcting. It is true that one of the petit Jurors applied to the Court about some trifling remark made on them that they were " a mixed medley collection of characters;" but that amountsto little. I was called up to the Judge's seat by one of the Judges himself? (Lynch, we believe, who now denies that he was one 'of lh? complaining parties)?and the papers were put into my hand by that very Judge: and although three or four of the Jurors had sigued a paper, the body of that paper ten* in the hand-rrrtiing of the Judge hinurlf, and it was drawn up by him, and no one else. Now, these are the tacts, and let thoae who did the work take the responsibility. My duty is a simple one as Dis rict Attorney. It is to present the facts of the case to you?prove them if possible, and then leave the matter with you. After your verdict, my task is ended. Whatever applications have to be made, should then be made to the Court bv the Judge. I will now read the libel complained of* Mr. W. then read the following: CouBT or Skijiosi ?The proceedings in this miserable hole yesterday were of little interest. Noah?the sn called Judge fur a very short period, shook like an aspin leaf, and was as a red as an old turkey hen the whole day, on account of what appeared in the 'Heralu." He denit d, like a false old fool, as he is, that he had any thing to du with the "Star," and raid nothing till towards night, when he fell asleep. Mr. Lynch looked ridiculous the whole day, and was laughed at by Tallmadge, Whiting, the Aldermen and all the lawyer*, for his folly."' The District Attorney then called Henry Van dewoort, who proved that Lynch and Noah sat on the bench the 17th of June last Whitish ?That's our case, sir. Judge Rest.?Have you any thing to say, Mr. Merrill! Morrh.l.?Nothing, sir. Judo* K st.?Have you, Mr. Whiting 1 WiiiTiwo.?No, sir?there's nothing more. Judge Kent then addressed the Jury. He said that iu prosecutions for libel, the Jury have the highest and most undisputed prerogative. It has been decided by the Constituttion of this State, and is more undoubted than any other privilege which you possess. For, however eminent jurists may doubt whether you are of right judges cf the law and the fact in other criminal cases, no one disputes that you are to the fullest extent, judges of ilie law as well asjthe fact, in cases of libel. And this arose out of the long and continued struggle foi the liberty of the press, which commenced in England under Charles box, and was carried on with so much zeal, energy, ability and success, by Hamilton nnd other eminent men here; and eoon to the securing these rights by the constitution and by the laws The only question for you to consider is, is this a libel! You are judges to the fullest extent here, and know your prerogative. Nevertheless, to guide you, I will mike a tew remarks from an elementary w riter on this subject who has well defined this nutter- A libel, as applicable to individuals has been well defined to be a malicious publication, expressed either in printing or writing, or by signs or pictures tending pithpr trt hlarkpn (hp inrmnrv nf nnn *!?>?/< nr the reputation of one alive, and expose hint to public hatred, con'empt, or ridicule. But though the law be solicitous to protect every man in his fair fame and character, it is equally careful that the liberty of speech and of the press should ' be duly preserved- Tbe ilberal communication of sentiment, and entire Ireedom of discussion, in respect to the character and conduct of public men, and of candidates for public favor, is deemed essential to the judicious exei cise of the right of suffrage, and of control over the rulers, which resides in the free people of the United States. It has accordingly become a constitutional principal in this country that "svety citizen may freely tpedkjwnte, and publoh his sentiments on all subjects, b ing responsible for the abuse of that right, and that no law can rightfully be passed to restrain or abridge the freedom cf the roeech or of the press. Ttie Constitution ol New York, as amended in 1821, is a little varied in its language from those provisions which have been mentioned, and is not quite so latitudinary in its indulgence as ?oine of them. It declares that "inull prosecutions or indictments lor libels the truth may be given in evidence to the jury; and if it shall appear to the jury that the matter charged as libellous is trve, and was published with good motives, and fsr justifiable ends, the party shall be acquitted " These provisions in favor ol giving the train in evidence, are to be found only in those consiiiutions which have been promu'gated long, since cur revolution; and the current of opinion seems to have been setting strongly, not only in favor of erecting barriers against any pirvious reitraints upon publi cationa (and which was all that the earlier sbges of ihe revolution had in view), but in favsr of the policy that would diminish or destroy altogether every obstacle or responsibility in the way of the publication of the truth. (The Judge then said (tut he would read from the law which applied to publishing false reports of the proceedings of Courts of Justice; and he rsad that section which treated of the power of courts to punish all who should pub,i-!i gnarly inaccurate reports of their proceedings ) This las; pr ivimoa lo-ais upon this matter The I only question is, is thlS nutter libellous ; and f so, is I here anything to jasttfy its publication. !>->es it I lend to bUckeathe character of the coinplainaots, I 0 I ; or hold them up to the he'red, ridicule and nntempt of the community: Or whetner it is mrrelv ] a harmless iea d'e*prit. bjyer, if you plesse, and with nomr freedom of expression, or a good-natured car nature witho# any malice, or re*Uy any intention , f producing uuch a feeling for Mcuara Lynch and Noah- As I said before, gentle moo, it in for your ; deliberatiou to ray ; you are the Judges ol the whole j matter, and with theee remark* I submit it to your , decision. , There was constderble laughter whilst the Pis- { trict Attorney was reading the libel; and there wan , a great deal of littering when the jury went out.? , As there had been bo defence, of course, they re- ( turned into Court in ten minutes with a verdict of , guilty. Tim Corrtt* IifDicnrxirr. __ _ I Mr. Whitiso then called on the trial of the cofb-e indictment, which was the original cause of all this commotion. Mr. Morkiix made a motion'similar to what he had done in the other case. Anew jury was empanelledMr. Whitiho stated that this indictment was for a report of a Coffee Case, and was headed " A Curious Case of receiving Stolen Coffr-e." He also observed, that as only small parts of this report were alleged to be libellous, yet as these consisted of interjections and wittv remarks thrown in here and there, aud as the whole was moat admirably told and worked up together with great skill and humor, he should be compelled to read the whole for their edification. Mr. Whitiwo then read the report of "Ritchie's Coffee Trial," published in the Herald of the 15'h of June, 1S41. And such an effect as it produced has not been seen in that Court for a long time pastj Mr. Whiting was continually interrupted by loud bursts of laughter, which all the dignity and gravity of Judge Kent could tot restrain. Aldermen Purdy and Lee could not keep their countenances, and once or twice laughed outright. The jury who were to try the cause, tried to keep from laughing, but could not; the lawyers held their hands to their mouths, to preserve decorum. The reporters laughed heartily ; and even Judge Kent himself had once or twice to relax the austerity of his features and gave way to the impulses rf nature for a moment, before he thumped on the desk with his little hammer. As for Whiting,he was in a rich round laugh all the time he was reading. He emphasized every word most admirably, gave every joke with zest and gusto ; and declared, when he got through, that he never haJ an idea how good a report it was until he had read it aloud and found the effect it produced. So general was the sense of the ludicrous seen here, that Judge Kent suggested to Mr. Whiting that he hud better stop reading. Whiting, however, enjoyed the joke tco well, and continued reading about two thirds of the report, when seeing that the risible faculties of the audience, jury, bar and bench, were likely to burst all bounds, Judge Kent stopped the reading before half the alleged libellous matter was read to the jury. Mr. Whiting was going on to state that with the exception of a few humorous interjections thrown in, in a few places, the report was one cf the most ad- c mirable and correct ones that was ever made ; the n Judge thought he had stated enough to the jury. He called Henry Vandervoort, who proved again that Noah was on the bench during that trial. c Mr. Whiting said he had nothing more to say. Mr Morrill said the same, and added that he a was perfectly willing that the Jury ntjould take the h former charge. K d.funoi: KewT said, that bb probably stgpne of the ? Jurors had not heard all that he had before said, he J( must go over his remarks again- He then tepeated r tha substance of his former*charge. In speaking of p the power of courts to punish for contempt aud false p reports, hejadded, on the other hand, courts are bo a well protected and sufficiently grounded in public opinion, that they are not affected by a harmless, * good-natured report of their proceedings, even 8 though that report be in many instances not strictly * correct. The only question here, gentlemen, for for yon to consider, is this a maliciout publication (he laid great stress on the word " malicious,") 7 tending to blacken the character of Judge Noah, and to hold iiim'up to hatred and contempt.
