THE NEW YORK HERALD. Vol.xi#fNo.sin ?wholewo.4103. NEW YORK, TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 11, 1S45. Important from tlie Mormon Country. [The late mailt from the west have placed us in psension ol some very interesting intelligence in the Mormon .country. It seems that affairs sre are in a remarkably unsettled state, and rapid approaching a crisis. ill the intelligence that has reached us indicate it the Mormons cannot long remain where they i with peace to themselves and neighbors'; and i saints, with perhaps one or two exceptions, are king preparations for their Hegira. It is supposed tI those suints who ure willing to take up their s of flight to California or Oregon, think of leav !, probably as a sort of commemorative event, in y, the month of the Hegira from Mecca, abouj lelve hundred years ago. {This second Ilegira may lead to some iat result?the founding, perchance, of a mighty pire on the shores of the Pacific; an empire that y yet have a controlling influence over this conti ht, and thus over the whole world. Mighty results |re sprung from smaller events, and we, therefore, k upon the movements of the Mormons with no lie interest. n the meantime, however, there is likely to be a uggle between the Mormons and Anti-Mormons, 1 between the former and a few of their Saints, ided by Wm. Smith, the only surviving brother Joe, and the Patriarch of the Flock. Wm. Smith low in Si. Louis, having been driven from Nuu the Mecca of the 19th century?bending his :rgies in a very curious way, and in very funny guage, in exposing the vices of the " Twelve," |1 in endeavoring to keep the Mormons within (he ited States, to scatter over the Union like other bgious sects. Recording to the following extracts this struggle already begun, and is carried on in a plain spo and most graphic manner. [From the Wanaw Signal, Oct. 29. | HOC I. A MAT 105 OK UlLI. SMITH.?But fOW prodllCtiollI e appeared, in the history of Mormonism, that have n nought for with more avidity than the extraordina I'roclamation of Bill Ignith, wnich we publish in to '? paper. It is a document, which, taken in connec i with the testimony, previously elicited, establishes ond a doubt, the utter depravity of the Mormon lea s and tho dangerous nature of the socret combina |s existing in Nauvoo. In relation to the author, th, we have but little to say. He is doubtless actuated, in this expose, by selfish and inter ?d motives, and were it not for the fact that be been virtually stripped of power in Nauvoo, he, in ail Lability, would never have appeared before the public ith has the reputation of being a man of candor and. lerosity, and were it not that he has been so long sub ted to the corrupting influences of Mormonism, we uld have some confidence that lie was really actua lly a desire to expose iniquity. Notwithstanding we give Smith but little credit for his motives, we yet |ie\e his statements. The composition bears, on the s of it, the evidence of its truth. There is nothing ut it except its religious matter that it overstrained mprohnble ; but it is .a plaiu narrative, corroborating statements which have been so repeatedly made by fsders ftoin tho Mormon Church. 'Imere is one thing Ut it which we do not like, and that is his opposition he California expedition; still, we think, it is highly liable that Smith's predictions in relation to that ex 'itiou will be confirmed. If we were called on togive ice to the Saints, in relation to the best course for |m to pursue, we would say: First:?Hang the elve, the Bishops and the City Police, and then scat through those communities, which, in the late dim ities, expressed so much sympathy in your favor. avvoo in a Statk of Rkbullio.n.?For the last four is, u quani rebellion has existed in Nauvoo. It has been open and avowed, but the laws have been us dually put at defiance by the various means re led to by the Mormons, to shield each other trom if it El, as if it were done by the force of arms.? e and again have officers visited Nauvoo with ess ; hut iu almost every instance they have been lted and abused and never, unless it suits the parti r policy of the saints, have they been successful in |iing arrests, la the mean time, people at a distance e complained ot the illegal proceedings of the anti mons, and when we urged, ae a justification, the |ieroua depredations and lawless acts of the saints, have boon asked, " why do you not punish them by " Though we have urged again and again that the cannot be made to reach these villians, and have d numerous instances to prove our position, yet we still met with this senseless question, " why don't punish them by law 7" Although we have so fre ntiy, before, answered this question, we are yet lling to do so again, and for this purpose_will give a In nvrratiro of what transpired, on lai" ~ ast Saturday, in |ivoo. After the adjournment of court on Saturday , Judge Purple, Major Warren, Mr. Brayman and eral other gentlemen, accompanied by ten of the incy Kiflemen, started for Nauvoo. When they e within u few miles of the city, they met a consi >ble body of armed men, which Bibbit, who was in puny attempted to disperse ; bat they would not |y him. After arriving In the city, Major Warren ed together the twelve and enquired ot them why had suffered large bodies of armed men to be ata d on the prairie, contrary to hia orders. They re d that they did it for their own protection?stating at same time that they did not regard his force as any lection to them, because he had anftered a mob to 'mble at Carthage and deliberately resolve that f should leave in the spring, and also because ?ei had been burned since he came into the county, therefore, as he did not protect them, they woulJ ect themselves. A debate ensued, and the storm be e violent. The Saints abused Judge Purple for his Hit action, and cursed the Governor and the people of State, generally, in tie moat violent manner. Fi y they avowed their determination not to suffer any ists to be made, in the city, or any oi their men to he tn out of it Such was the violence of their manner. Judge Purple, and others in company, began to feei jsidcrably apprehensive for their safety. Before this nsel was called, an officer, having writs to serve in city, requested the aid of Major Warren, which tho lei said be would grant on the next day: but after stormy interview with tho authorities ol the church, 'as advised by Judge Purple not to attempt the ar (?, as it would be, in his opinion, certain death to them Major Wurren agreeing with the judge in this, re d to ussist the officer on the neat morning, and on id all his men to leave town immediately. From this, ill appear that the Mormon authorities have declared lircitv in a state of open rebellion. Now will not |ne of tho brainless scribblers, who are figuring the newipapors, throughout the country, again us why we don't punish the Mormens by law 7? e will submit to no more writs and none ol our men 111 be taken out of the city" is the avowal made by the mon leaders to the agent of the executive. Citizens iliaois what are your laws worth?indeed what hare r been worth for the last four years, when an attempt been made to enforce them against the Mormons 1? lie the city charter existed, liy means of a sham pro |dtng in their city courts, they managed to screen i arrest all whom they were disposed to protect. Af the repeal of the charter they intuited, abused and atened every officer who attempted to make arrests ?heir city, until, no officer could be found who would Iture with criminal process into Nauvoo, and now If openly and above board declare to the agent of the cuiive u.ey are above the law. Is not this treason 7 t not an open declaration ol wart tiMKi Aiimisciton Bknnktt.?This second edition of ibastes Ki: rioso, on learning of the difficulties in this uty, lelt lor the west to settle our affairs. He came he way from Long Islanhfor the purpose of subduing Anti-Mormons. But when he reached his destination, ing that a settlement had been effected,without his me lon. he commenced scribbling lor the St.Louis papers s IwMMt is a very great man in his own estimation, |ich makes hint a very great fool in the estimation of n ono else He bos, for years, been tumpenmr with Mormons, evidently with the design ol using them arrying out some I topian scheme in which he hopes listtnguiah himself. In the lile time ol Jop, lie wrote tier to him, giving a large account of his immense tith, which should all be subservient to the prophet's |l, provided he would IodJ his influence to make a at man of him. Joe, thinking that this letter afforded excellent opportunity to make a little pious capital himself, published it with a very severe reply. Be , however, took no offence, but tias persevered ever Jc in courting Mormon favor. In the Ncu> Era ol the inst. this Bernet publfshes an article in which lie Ied " are you going to outrage the laws that bind so iy together, on account of a difference oi religious piousIf the fool knows no better than to think k religious differences are the causes of the difficnl L in hancoc.k, he bad better return immediately to .uigion House, and spend the rest of bis days in en [iiemi'g himself. gam tie says:?"The Mormons are charged with ltd and oilier climes. Rven if they are guilty, are the same class of crimes ond misdemeanors common all our cities :?New York city, in a population of i hundred thousand, has , it is said, twanty thousand lot- and as many thieves, including politicians and kern, slid infidelity is preached and discussed every iday i*tbe year and advertised in the papers as such? no ml ol men would dare to advocate the burning of ir Mouses and expelling them from the State." lore sgain Bonnet display es his iguorance of the true fits oi tho controversay ; for there is no similitude ween tho enso of New V ork and that ot Nauvoo. In loimer city, the great body of the papulation use .? utmost exertions to ferret out thieves und otlior tunnl.?"d to bring them to justice; but iu Nauvoo, ves and other criminals are haiborcd and oven when ul sie protected from arrest. In New Vork the whole UlatioB are not banded together for the protection of h other agsitist-legal punishment, they are not sub to the dictation of one man, nmt that man a noto h viilian they do not harbor thieves, counterfeiters murderers, nor Insult, abuse and threaten officers ' go there to make arrosts, as is the case in Nauvoo. New tuik when a thief is caught there is some ice of convicting him ; but in this county we have men officers?Mormon Juries, and to back those, i men peiynry. We advise Bennet and a few editors like kidney to enlighten themselves, tn re 1st!en te our difficulties, before they make further attempts to eu* lighten the public. Armed 1'akiih or tiik I'iiaihik.?Notwithstanding the orders of Major Warren and Gen. llard'ii, the Mor mons have, since last Thursday, kept copstautly station ed armed guards on the prairie, several miles from Nauvoo. On last Saturday, several of these parties approached Carthage, and snout do, with concealed weapons, entered the town. While these armed parties are traversing the county there will be continual appre hension and excitement. They should therefore be dis persed at all hazards. Mohk House Bihrino.?We learn that two or three Mormon cabins, in the south cf the county, were last week burned ; by whom, we have not been ablo to learn. We regret this proceeding ; for it Anti-Mormons weie roncerneJ, it will have a tendency to injure our cause.? The policy of burning Mormon houses is, at present, to say the least of it, very short sighted. What can be gaiued by such a courser Nothing ; but, on the other hand, every thing may be lost. Why, then, should a sly few men recklessly involve their friends in ruin 7 We hope that hereafter every Anti-Mormon will feel the im portance of remaining quiet until au emergency arises 1 such as will justify decisive action. STori-ED.?We learn that it has been announced that the publication ol the Nauvoo Neighbor will be discon tinued after this week. What a loss to the literary world ? Ai-UARr, Nov. 10, 184.1. The Election Reault?Strife Jor the Stair Printing? Hueetion Settled?Spencer an Honor to the Senate? Crain, Lawrence and Young, Candidate! for Speaker?' Jlnti-Rentere and the Governor?Peat Office Iloblery, <J-c. 4 c. I have returned to this city, from attendance at the Supreme Court at Koch ester, and find that, during my absence, the election has beon held, and the members of the Legislature chosen for the ensuing year. The de mocratic party retain the ascendancy in both Houses. The whigs elect a Senator iu this (the third) district, by the assistance of tha lawless anti-renters. The same party elect Joshua A. Spencer iu the Filth, becuuso a barnburner from Otsego was nominated, instead" of Speaker Seymour. The hunkers openly bolted in Otse go, nominated, and elected their ticket; and in that strong democratic county, gave the whig Senator a large majority. The anti-renters, with all their braggadocia only elect some five or six members, in as many coun ties. They are classified in the Jlrgua as democrats and whlgs, but neither party ought to recognise them in caucus. The strife between the Jlrgua and Jltlaa in obtaining members favorable to each other, in order to procure the State printing, has resulted in favor of the former. Cros well will be reappointed with a larger vote than in 18-13. The defeat of the burners in Otsego, Cayuga, McCarthy in Onondaga and AVulworth, in the Fifth District, settles matters with them at present and perhaps forever. Young, Chase ami Bailey, with their waning strength in the Senate, are absolutely unable to accomplish any de structive measures. It is very questionable whether French will make weekly advances from his private means much longer, for the mere empty honor of own ing the leading burners' paper in the State?the prospect of his being State printer being rather too far ahead. The Citizen newspaper, started some two years since in opposition to Weed and the Journal, has been whig, abolition, native, anti-repeal, and has succeeded in nei ther. The Journal is quite passive, and gives up the election with Weed's usual grace in defeot. It does not even exult over the election of Spencer and Van Schoonhoven, both whigs, returned from strong democratic districts. It is said that Spencer will decline a seat in the Senate, preferring to retain his present extensive ami lucrative practice at the bar of the Supreme Court and F.rrors. It is to be hoped, for the interests of the State and the good of the people, that he will consent to become one of the judges in the Court of last resort.- His great legal attain ments would command an influence there, which no other member possesses. In contrast with Spencer's great mind, such intellects as are encased in the dough heads of Jones, Deyo, both Smiths, Johnson, Burnhntn, Beers, Lester, Porter, I'lurk, Hard, &c.,(xc., would be come diminished and demolished in an instant. What a wonderfully congregated mass of legal lore is now contained upon the bench of the highest tribunal in the State, which body ndjudicates for three millions of people! No wonder that the Legislature refuses to amend the Constitution?and no wonder that the people have arisen in almost unanimous masses, to abolish this the highest of their legal depositories. The candidates lor a Speaker are already in the field. The burners ure straining every nerve in favor of Dr. Crain, their defeated candidate of last year. The talent which he displayed while a member in the last House, does not warrant the belief that he possessos the neces sary qualifications for that arduous and perplexing poti lion The Doctor is au excellent man, aud would un doubtedly grace the station with the best of his ability; but as he does not possess a copious fluency of speech, or, in debate, command the ready use of words, it would be exposing him to many embarrassments. The hunk ers ate figuring for Sidney Lawrence, formerly a Sena tor, but who never exhibited either industry or talent during the entire term of his service. He possesses not a single qualification, and, if elected, it will be only to his discomfiture, lobe held in leading strings, as was good-natured Litchfield two years since. The whlgs will support John Yo ng, of Livingston, the ablest man in the last Legislature, and who is absolutely the only person in the next House capable of transacting the busi ness, at d doing the honors of the Speakership. Is there not one among your thirteen upon whom this distin guished honor could be worthily conferred? You can form no idea of the immenso excitement which has been raised in this anti-rent region, since the election, to induce Governor Wright to commute the sentence of death imposed upon two of the murderers of Steele. During the process of voting, in the Indian camp, ? Hot-ti petitions were spread upon the ballot-boxes, and as each savage deposited his vote against Governor Wright, law and order, their names were attached to these petitions, praying lor executive clemency. What consistency !? A formidable organized band of ruthless outlaws, Jefy ing the power ol the law, deliberately and in open day murdering one of its constituted ministers, boasting of the deed and regretting that " forty more'' were not also killed ; and now, forsooth, implore the executive to spare their justly forfeited lives. An examplo must be made, and Governor Wright possesses the firmness and decision to execute his duty, nowever painful, and let the administration ofjustice ensue, the supremacy of the law vindicated, and the people rendered seenre in their property and person The United States Grand Jury, recently in session in this city, have investigated the late post office lobbery, whereby a large amount of cashier Lee's drafts were ab stracted. It seems that a lady had a hand in the matter, aud the package was obtained in consequence of not be ing being deposited far enough into the letter box. She was proved to be subject to periodical fits of insanity, and as nothing has been lost, the matter dropped by giv ing our political postmaster a certificate of exoneration from all manner of blame. Terrific Gales at (Quebec.?One of the most terrific gules of the season, from the east, has now Unfed two days, and been productive of serious damage in the immediate neighborhood of (Quebec there can be but little doubt but thai we ihall hear of disasters nmong the shipping below, cauaed by it. Indeed we have already to note the return of two vessels hence, the barques Amity and Neptune ; they sailed on Thurs day and returned yesterday with loss of anchors. The steamer Pocahontas arrived in port yesterday morning from the Saguenay, and reports the Briton's t^ueen, to (Quebec, water logged. She saw no vessels on shore The steamer l|ueen, at the wharf, received considerable damage. One half of her outer works on the starboard side was carried away ; and she received some addition al injury during the thumping she underweut last night against the wharf. She, however, left for Sorel this morning, about one o'clock, but experienced much diffi culty in getting from the wharf, owing to the continu anco of the gale. She took the mail. The many schoo ners and batteaux in the Cul-de-Sac and at the ralais, have suffered severely; some ofthoin, indeed, have been completely destroyed. It is reported that one man was crushed to death between two batteaux on Sunday night; we have not, however, been able to obtain nny official confirmation of this rumor.? This morning, early, the River St. Charles, above the bridge, was almost choked with floating timber of every description, boats, batteaux, ttc. At JDeauport raits had broken adrift, and booms been torn open ; and similar disasters occurred at many of the coves along the north side of the St. Lawrence there has not, as yet, been any report* from the opposite shore of the river The Lochlibo and Euxine broke adrift from Maitland's booms last night, and the Nelson Village received some injury to her bowsprit. The schooner Johnson, with a cargo of potatoes from Charlottetown, P. K. I. oi this city, while lying at Leaycraft's wharf, was atove in last night by a ?tick of timber, and at once tilled, it is feared her oargo of n-BN) bushels will be totally lost. The steamer Mon treal arrived at Diamond Harbor thie morning, about twelve o'clock, and there dropped anchor. It was with the utmost difficulty the mail was landed from her ; it did not reach the Tost office until U P. M. As she can not come to at any wharf to take in coal she will not leave to-night, and the mail, outward, will, of course, have to await the abatement of the gale. The Montreal ran through the Lake last night, hut incutred considera ble risk at Port fit. Francis, when approaching the wharf. The schooner J. R. 11., !?'. Arbon, arrived trom Bay de Chaletir to-day, and reports that he passed the ship Km pire at anchor oil' Isle Madame yesterday ; and that he saw no vessels ashore.? lire Afercury, Nov. A. Protection against Pickpockets.?A tailor ol ? Ins town, says the Amhtr$( Expreu, h?s invented an ingenious and effectual protection against that species of thieving so common at tho present day, by which one's money,or other valuable*, is abstracted irom his pockets. It consists of two CHrvod plates united by hinges it the extremities, and which, by means of holes in the plates, are sewed to the lid of the pocket, con stituting its opening. While the plates are being shut, a slide to which a spring it attached, is forced up, which immediately resumei it* place as they close and fasten them together. Not only is the pockot fastened by the slide, whenever it is shut, but it may also be locked if the owner desires it, by pressing a knob, of which there are tin on upon the plate, all of which must ho moved to unlock the uocket.and the use of both hands is necessary to <lo it. The pocket is also surrounded with a net work of wire, so that whatever is contained In it can neither he taken out or out out without the knowledge or consent of the owner. The Invention is applicable ! both te watch pockets and othsrs. Affairs at Thk West.?The Keosauqua, Iowa, Timet, ot the 22nd ult., gives some interesting intel ligence of the progress ot Iowa. That Territory seemsto be refreshing itself in a very gratifying manner. Annexed are a few extracts ;? We hail thought that Iowa'a drain upon the States, had been inch heretofore that very few would venture a set tlenient for the preient, upon the land recently vacated ! by the Indiana. Hut we perceive such ia not the case? almost every steamboat seconding the Mississippi, I ia crowded with passengers, " bound for Iowa." i A. W. Maugum, reaiding some three milee southeast of i this place, presented ua last week with lour large Irish potatoes, the average weight oi which was two pounds ; aud a quarter each; the largest weighed over three pounds, lie also raised this season from one groin of corn, and from a single stalk, six ears, the largest of which contained more than one thousand kernels ? ihese are great productions for a new country. Since writing the above, Bryant has sent us specimens of what I he can raise, a very large pumpkin and squash. Tho i former weighs 101 pounds, the latter 6'J pounds, und was ; gathered from a vine which was 1980 leet in length, and | produced iu all'JO squashes, the weight of which were I upwards of 1000 pounds?the least not weighing ! less than 31' pounds, and the largest not over 63} pounds. But On, that pumpkin! Who can beat it?? Mr. Bryant also sent us word that lie had "lcetle" the largest ear of corn yet?haviug one that numbered near eleven hundred kernels to the ear?that will bo hard to beat sure enough. We saw a few days sincean ear of sod corn that numbered nearly 000 kernels. We have received a letter from a friend at tho Forks of the Des .Moines, in which lie says;?"The,Indians have all left except a few stragglers, and they will leave in a few days. The claim-makers are flocking in like bees a swarming, and I expect to see houses rise, as it were by magic, iu a day or so Capt. Allen and his invincihles are still here, and from all appearances will remain until spring." Supreme Court.?Rochester, November 7, 1845. ?General Rules.?Ordered, that the following be added to the general rules of the court; Rule 103?Cri minal cases, und cases in which the people are the plain tiffs iu interest, may be moved on behalf of the people out of their order on the calendar on the morning ol any day in the first week of the term; and they may also be moved on the morning ot any other day in term, provi ded the public prosecutor, or the attorney for the plain till', shall have given a notice of not less than lour days, of his intention to move on the particular day. Rule 104?Wheie a clerkship as a student at law has already been commenced without complying with the rules of the court by filing a certificate of the commencement of the clerkship, or by procuring and filing an order for the allowance of classical studies, such certificate, veri fied by the affidavit of the attorney, may be filed at any time before the first day of February next; and such or der may he made by one of the clerks of this court at nny time before the said first day of February next. If there shall not be a compliance with this order, or, in the case of clerkships hereafter commenced, if the rules of tho court shall not be observed, the student will lose an allowance for legul or classical studies, as the case may be.

James Gordon Bennett, Esq.: I observe by a notice in the Sunday Herald, that the Captains of Police are about to enforce the ordi nances for their infraction of throwing ashes, Arc. into the street. This is well enough so far as it goes, hut will not, cannot, cure the evil. Notices will not do it?never have done it; and unless the Captains of Police are more observant, and more at tentive to their duties than the Street Inspectors, (which I doubt,) we shall be no better of] than we have been, because the thing most wanted is a pro |ier system in collecting ashes, garbage, \'c. That proper system we have never had. Either the per sons who have the management of this department have not the brains to devise one, or else they are too lazy and careless to do it, or they are not allow ed the means. I3e the reasons good or bad, the thing is not done as it ought to be done, and until a system is put in practice in which proper carts are constructed?proper men employed?and every house called at, and the ashes and olfal taken out by the men, and the vessels returned, instead of ringing bells and blowing horns, it can never be done well. Ordinances and paper bullets,?even with the addition of Captains and the whole police to boot?will not cure the evil, without being furnished with the proper and regular means of getting rid of ashes ana offal without the necessity of throwing them into the street. The first thing, then, the Cor poration has to do, and which 1 hope they will do, is, to adopt a new and improved system lor collect ing ashes and offal, and then the necessity and ex pense of notices, police, &c. will be unnecessary.? Will you urge this branch of reform as well as oth ers on our city lathers I In so doing, you will confer a favor on J. M. naming Yor Poultry, die. James (tordon Bennett, Esq.: Can you inform me and our city fathers, whether Raffling for articles comes under the appellation and denomination o| gambling or not I It Ptrikes ine that it does. Is it not a game of chance 1 Is raf fling less iniquitous and criminal than card or otlter games that are prohibited to those who take out li censes lor taverns, iVc.1 Are not games with dice among the prohibitions in granting licenses ? As great numbers are fleeced of their hard earn ings by raffling, and if it comes under the denomi nation of gambling, as 1 think it does, allow me to call theattention of those whose duty it is to the evil, and to putnstop to it instanter, i y takingaway the li cense from every person and house where raffling is practised, no matter what the articles rallied lor con sist of. J. M. Mr. Editor :? Knowing the hostility of your Herald to all and every sort of hyi>ocnsy?1 wish to call your atten tion to the fact, that, on Saturday night last (on which th'-re was n rehearsal) the New York Sacred Music Society called a meeting for practice of its orchestra; on the next night, although Sabbath even ing?the occasion being the Concert to took place last night, for the pecuniary benefit of its Conduc tor; and they also invited all the other members to be present. Although many of the members were op nosed to a Lord's day rehearsal for a public and part ly secular Concert,yet the rehearsal was called,and thus a retqiectahlc Society lends its name tor an open desecration ol the sacred day. Having no ill will to its Conductor, (for whose benefit it is,) this will not appeal until alter the Concert has taken place?but it might have had some influence, and caused many to abstain Irom going to bear the festi val.

Esq , District Attorney Trial of Jamrt Eagleeon, for /tups, Returned.?On open ing the Court, this morning, Mrs. Watkins, mother of the girl upon whom the alleged rape was committed, wa* recalled to the itand By the Diitrict Attorney, anil further examined. Nothing of importance, however, was elicited from her. Thomas Warner, Esq., the ahle counsel for the accu sed, then rose in behalf of hi* client, and stated that from the evidence adduced on the part of the prosecution, more especially that of the physicians, it wus clear that a case of felony had not been made out. aud on that ground the case ought not to be submitted to the jury. In reply, the District Attorney remarked that he was not disposed to press the case further than an assault and battery, with an intent to commit a rape. Whereupon Mr. Warner proposed to submit the case to the jury as a common assault, rather than occupy the attention of the Court in hearing the testimony they had to otter. Tho District Attorney being unwilling to pursue this course, Mr. Warner proceeded to call his witnesses.? After the evidence on both sides had been closed, Mr. Warner made a truly able and eloquent appeal to the jury, in behalf of his client. The District Attorney lollowed, on the part of the prosecution, in a very able argument, the substance of which, as well ns the remarks of Mr. Warner, are una voidably omitted. After a brief, hut very explicit charge from the Recor der, the case was submitted to the jury, who, at a late hour, foand the accused guilty of an assault only. The Court then adjourned until to-morrow morning Chancery. Before Vice Chancellor McCoun? Nov. 10.?Henry Dally vt. Comitock ij- Co.?This was a motion on part of defendant to dissolve an injunction which had been issued by the complainant to restrain the deiendants from the sale of an article called " Daily's Magical Pain Kxtractor." An answer was put in on i part of the defendants setting forth their right to make and sell the above articles and use also the wrap , pers thereon, they having first made the Dame thereou. His Honor delivered an elaborate opinion on the case. This motion is made to dissolve an injunction issued to restrain defendants from the sale of what is called " Dai ly's Magical Pain Kxtractor." The papers before me in relation to the case are voluminous, and it is uot neces- < sarv in disposing of it to go over all. There is al so an answer on the part of the defendants. A question has arisen as to whether the affidavits an nexed to the answer should be taken into conside ration, inasmuch as they relate to other matters. I think in a case of this tuna, where the oath of the defendant is waived in the bill, that the answer and the affidavits may all be received for the purposes of the motion, and received rather as attidavits than as a plea responsive to the bill; so that the attidavits accompany ing it, i have looked up, to ascertain how far they bear upon the case. The injunction seeks to restrain the ' parties on three particulars. Kirst, from advertising for the sale the article called "Daily's Magical Pain Ex- , tractor." It is alleged in the bill that somo time la it spring, an advertisement appeared in a newspaper for the sain of the article, thus making it an article sold by de fendants. This is one of the complaints in the bill. An other object ol this injunction is to restrain the defend ants from using certain recommendatory certificates ob tained from third persons, recommending it as an article in great use and of value-the complainant claiming by his bill to be the proprietor of those certificates, and seeking to restrain those defendants from using them. And another object of the bill is to re strain the defendants from using certain wrappers, which have been used and put round those articles in a mechanical and pictorial form, setting forth the qualities of the article. These are the objects of the injunction in this cause, and the bill asks to make it perpetual, so that the complainant may have the exclusive right to advertise this article?the exclusive right to those certi ficates?the exclusive right to those wrappers ; or, in other words, to restrain the defendants from using them. Before disposing of this case on its merits, 1 will state the principles that govern the Court of Chancery in such cases. It will he observed that Dally, in his bill, has i not alleged that ho is the original inventor or matiufac : turer of that article. He meiely states, that some time ago he was engaged in the business manufacturing tha ar tide,but claims no right or patent; so that he can have no exclusive right. It is clear that, unless a man is an invent or,he cannot claim exclusive right. Any other peison may make and vend out the same article, and enter into com petition and sale thereof. There must be a legal right, such as that claimed by Dally in this case; but this is : not a case where a Court of Chancery interferes. If a i man is in the habit of making and vending an article for sale, and has adopted certain marks by which his article I is known, in all such cases wherever his trade-marks are | taken trom him, so that the party so taking them may | have the benefit of his marks?in such cases he has the power to restrain by injunction As for instance, if Dally was entitled to have his article called " Daily's Magical Pain Kxtractor," and that he was selling the ar ticle, and Comitock infringed by taking away that mark, the Court may interfere in relation to tho name or mark. There are several cases in Eng land, and in this State, in which Chancery lias acted upon this principle. Alter citing the case ot I'erry vs. Trueman, Eng. Chan. Rep., being a case in which defendant infringed complainant's exclusive right to sell "The Medicated Mexican Balm," and other law cases, to illustrate his views, His Honor went on to say now in the present case it appears that in January, 1841, Dalley being the compounder of this article, entered into and became engaged in the manufacture, having found its efficacy in curing complaint* brought on by the ex plosion of steam and burns, and entered into a contract with Comrtock to give liim for twenty years, at one dol lar ner dozen, a supply of this article, reserving for him self the right of sale in the city of Albany, and also ol Troy, the other having the right ol sale to all the world beside ?that after some time they fell out, which result ed in Comstock filing a bill against Dally, and after some litigation in courts of law, an arrangement was entered into, by which they agreed to drop all suits, execute a new arrangement, that under a contract this arrange ment was made, and that was to be the end. Dally has since gone on and manufactured the article under his own name, as that of " Daily's Magical Pain Extractor," and Comstock has gone on also, naviDg been aware of the properties of the article, and lias sold gp article identically the same, under the name of "Connell's Magical train Extractor." It appeared that the name which Dally gave the article originally, was changed, and the present article was christened or baptized by the present defendant, Comstock, giving it the name ot "Daily's, &c." The parties have gone on making this article, Dally, in his way, selling it as his own,'and Com stock selling it as " Connell's, tic." In regard to the right of these parties to the certificates, it appears by the affidavits that some were procured by Dally lefore he had entered into the agreement, and the rest by Com stock. They were certificates which he had obtained for his own benefit. At the time he entered into this agreement with Comstock, he handed over all those cer tificates in order to serve this business, and Com stock claims those certificates. The wrappers were pro oured by Comstock at his own expense, and when en graved they had a far timile of Daily's writing. The labels had the name of "Connell's Magical Pain Extrac tor." Under the condition of the original agreement, these partios show they had a light to use them, and as to the certificates, they belonged to Comstock as much as to Dally, and so with regard to the wrappers. After detailing at considerable length the further particulars in relation to the case, his honor decided in favor of de lend ants, and ordered the injunction to be dissolved. ?Andrew Jl. (iarr, admr. rs. E. B. D. Ogden, agent for the State of Indiana?This was a motion for an order to compel the agent of the State of Indiana to appear be fore the court in this State, under a writ of subpoena, on n suit instituted against the State of Indiana. His honor held that the court had no jurisdiction over a sovereign 9tate, and denied the motion. Circuit Court. Before Judge Kdmonds. Nov. 10.?Edward W. Prmbrrtnn r?. Chftler lb'aldridgr impleaded with Waldridge Robbint and McKnight.?Deri sion.?It appeared that In January, 1045, three of the de fendant*, under the firm of Waldridge, Bobbin* and Mc Knight, began buiino** in thi* city with a capital ol about $1 J,000, and failed in October laat under circum stance* which induced the belief that the failure wa*, as i* alleged, a fraud. During the period they remained in huiine**, they purchased goods to the amount of $166, 07110. and at tne time of the failure owed about $100, 000. Their asset* were about $6000 worth of goods. There was a claim against the defendant, Chester Wald ridge, for $53,747 61, a similar claim against Theodore Ruasoil, of New Orleans, for $14,000, and one against a party named Newion, a brother in law of Waldridge, for about $5000. and one against Baird and Schuyler, for about $9000. The plaintiff being a creditor to a large amount, insist* that the whole concern, as they allege, was a fraud from the commencement, and provided he is correct in his allegations, the evidence before the Court, that the failure was fraudulent was very strong, and showed that nothing was left behind but few goods. His Honor, after recapitulating all the facts shown in evidence, goes on to say that the only question left was, how far Cheater Waldbridge was liable in the case I am of opinion that under the circumstances he is lia ble. and the attempts to conceal the books and hi* si lence, having given no explanation, affords grounds for suspicion, and forbids my releasing him from his arrest.? The order to show cause must therefore be discharged, but without prejudice to it* being renewed on further papers hereafter. Trlnl of Polly Hodlne. Nov. 10.?Kiasr Dev.?This protracted case was call ed on to day for the fourth time, and the features that havo marked the progress of the trial on the last orra sion in relation to the swearing of the jury, were exhi bited without the slightest variation, on this occasion, and will be likely to consume some weeks hofore a Jury can be procured.
