The cast of John Carr?another remarkable curt of King'e Eril, or Sci qfuUu* Consumption ! BY fCHKNCK'S PULMONIC SYRUP! Will the public read the following, and then judge for them ?aires 1 I have been sAicted with tha Scrofula for a number of yean. It commenced with a scrofulous ulceration on my side, which extended oyer my back, across my shoulders, antil tbe whole of my back was a running sore. It theu extended over my breast and down my arms, which in many places were nlcera ted to the bone. My throat and neck were also affected, a deep running ulcer extending from behind my ear under my jaw to my throat. I tried Swaim'a Panacea, rarions syrups or sarsa parilla, and all the remedies I could hear of. for this disease, without any benefit I had the adriee of many excellent phy sicians of this city, and used the iodine, iodine of iron, aod all the best remedies these gentlemen could suggest, but my dis ease remained unchecked. I am sensible that words are too feeble to express my miserable situation. In warm weather my sores wars yery offensive, and I was truly an ohjeet of pity. Early last Spring it settled on my lungs, and resulted in a deep-seated scrofulous consumption. I had a violent cough, pun iu my breast, fevar, night sweats, great emaciation, and prostration of strength. I was failing so fast, that I gare up all hope of recovery. No remedy that 1 took would produce the least effect upon me, aod many ol my friinds who saw me ?aid that it was impossible for a man so much diseased aa I was ever to recover. As my cough waa so vary bad, and my pulmonary disease fast increasing, a friend recommended gUHENCK'S PUL MONIC 8YHU1' for that dianue, and after using it some time. I fouad that it was the only remedy that I ever used that had the least benel cial effect upon me. It relieved me of my rough, pains and fever?stopped ?y nightswexta, and strength ened my whole system. Alter using the syrup for some time, I found, to my great joy. that my ulcers were ripening and be ginning to heal. 1 continued using the Syrup after I was cured of the consumption, until my sores were all healed, and the whola of my back, neck, breast aud arma are now covered with scan, which preaent a remarkable appearance. 1 am per fectly well at thia time, and am fnlly convinced thit no remedy bnt the Pulmonic Syrup would ever hsr# purified u.y system from this loathsome disease. I feel thankful that lam well again, and abla to attaud to my baaiaeaa ; and, as it is impossi Ms to dascribo tha appoaranee of the sews, I will, with plea sure, show thara to any person who may ham any scrofulous or eruptive diseases, at my reatdence.

A Maiden dwelt in e deep green wood, A smile of nature's purest mood, Her hair as sunshine streaming ; With eyes of gentlest riolet blue, -*"3 Whose elanees, earnest, mild and true, Told love lay in them dreaming. Three suitors had this msiden fair? The flrst, a gallant soldier them, His words with honor burning Of laurel-wresth and battle-flsld. Of glory that the wars doth yield, And victors home returning. A painter was the second, and he Toiled, longed, for immortality? Her words his dark soul brightnlng. He loved her as the stars?the sky, And to possess her would defy Earth* tempests wild benightnlng. The third was a true poet, and With soul half in the spirit-land. Adored her, past expressing. She was to him as a bright sphere Te wandering angels doth appear? A glory and a blearing. The maiden died, and lair she lay, As a creature newly formed of clay Not born for tears or sadness. So glorieutly she rested there, She seem'd a sweet, embodied prayer, Fresh from a heart of gladness. The lovers came and raised the shroud : The soldier breath'd his grief aloud, Tears o'er his pale fsoe streaming. He murmur'd, " I will win a fame, And with it shall entwine her name Like pearls with diamonds gleaming.1 The painter gated?a vacant smile Was playing o'er his lips the while, And that prottd heart was breaking.

This has been a great and ominous day In Albany,? elements combining and controlling the central regency power, the political influence of this State?galvanic and annihilating elements, to be brief, hare been hurried into awful contact, and Waterloo oonfusion, and Water loo thunder, and Waterloo slaughter, concocted and wielded by the Bonaparte and the Marshal Soult of the conservatives, (Clark in the Senate, and Sherwood in the House,) and the Wellington and Blucher of the radi. oals, (Young in the Senate, and Wells in the House,) have ensued; charges unprecedented in any history, except, perhaps, the charge upon LmHuy* Sainte by Bony's French troops, have occurred ; the old regency is In its lut squirming gasp ; the State of New York, governed, ruled, prostrated, disgraced, and dishonored, by a horde of Girondists, is about to shake the villanous repudia tion from her coat ol mail, and resume her original im perial glory. The Senate, the glorious State Senate, which holds a prerogative so high and so exclusive, was the theatre of bug-bear legends, hobgoblin stories, and locomotive legislation to-day. The debate arose upon the repert of a committee in favor of printing a certain document con taining a survey at fee northern portion of thki State,? showing its minesfe resources, and expatiatfhg upon a bed of iron ore ajbontly discovered in Clinten county , the advantages sx steam on Lake Champlain, and a con nection from thm point by railroad to Boonville, Oneida county, were also shown in this document. Senator Johnson was opposed to printing, and, during his re marks, took occasion to call Messrs. Spencer and Foi som high-toned federalists; and, for some reason or other, he classified these gentlemen with old fede ralists, who were ready and anxious to load the State with debt The debate, in a moment, took a most extraordinary turn. Mr. Spencer deemed any personality unworthy of his notice, and declared that if the Senate was to be disgraced with such per sonal blackguardism, he would endeavor to have the law prohibiting duelling instantly repealed. The bare and simple question of printing a few documents afford ed Young and Folsom it el scope and verge enough for one of those peculiar discussions which are heard ef no where else in Christendom. Mr Folsom followed Spen cer, in reply to the charge made by Johnson, feat he was a federalist. Mr. Folsom said he had put Johnson " to his trumps." A question here arose as to what was " trumps" thi* morning The enquiry wee referred to o committee conveisunt with "card" playing. Mr. Volaom demonstrated that he wee not a federal tel. and Voaag took the floor. He proceeded to reeolvo the term fede raliit He had been aeked if the junction of two demo crat* made a federalist; he thought not He concluded that tho term federalist was quite4indeflnito.

Oat* of Plumb greatly exaggerated?Ex-Qovtrnor Seward, f(. tfc. +e. The trial of Henry Wyatt, which haa juat termi nated, furniahes another melancholy proof of the perfect impunity with which criminals of the deep eat dye, slip through the India rubber meshes of the law. Tho jury, attar being out twenty-eight hours, could not agreo, and ware consequently discharged i they stood seven for conviction, and firs for acquittal. Read the evidence, and say whether or not, it is possible to make out a elearer case of cold-blooded, premeditate4 murder. A brief record of leoont events will Illustrate tha danger of being deluded by the spacious representations of political and pseudo-philanthropists A convict by tho nam* of Plnmb, confined in tha State prison here, was detected on two successive days, in three distinct and flagrant violations of tha rules; for each or those transgressions, he received a flogging?the throe punish ment* amounting in all, to sixty-five or eeventv blows with a oat, not oi " nine tails," but ona of five. On I Tuesday, at noon, ho went to the hospital?end on the ?uocaeding Saturday, at 8 P. M., he died. A few seiaed hold of this glorious golden opportunity to foist them selves into an evanescent notoriety, by attempting to | manufacture political capital from this so mow hat and dsn death- Accordingly, on tha following Monday, a report waa industriously circulated, throughout tha vll lags, that a sawvlot." a poor, way wart youth." had boon aoraloasly flagged to death for manly "brisking a I window." In order to satisfy tbe community of tho uttor . falsity of tho report, the officers of the prieon *ent for the coroner to hold en 1> queet; end the Jury, efter oecu pying ten honre in e cereful examination of ell the fecta end circumstances connected with the case, returned e unanimous verdiot of, "died of bilioae intermittent fever." Notwithstanding thia signal rebuke, the orlgi natora of the report still reiterated tho calumny ; end, by e death-struggle, they auooeeded in extracting from the Orand Jury, en indictment against Hiram Hathbun, head keeper, and M. VV. Carey, assistant keeper, for having "superinduced" the fever of which'Plumb, the convict, died. These simple facia have been so distorted by such catch-words as " Shocking brutality in the Au burn State Prison"?" 800 lashes (instead of 86 or 70 at most) inflioted upon a convict"?" death from flogging," ho. lie., that many well-meaning individuals have been betrayed into a belief that punishment, of every form, ought to be abolished as, unnecessary, in State prisons : and they, in their simplicity, would substitute moral suasion. Moral suasion, indeed! As well attempt to j appease the ferocity of the lion, ready to spring upon his prey, as attempt to oontrol the cut-threat and assassin by 1 mere moral suasion. This reoeatly awakened feeling of aversion to corpo real punishment, has also been enlisted in the cause of Wystt. It appears that ho, with two accomplices, some time in the month of July, 1844, provided themselves with suitable tools and weapons^ to afoot their escape from prison ; fortunately, however, for the lives of the feted turnkeys, the plot was disoovsred, and Wyatt re ceived tor this attempt at insubordination twenty-eight blows, the only punishment, by the way, with which he has ever been visited. This punishment, whioh had not j tbe least possible connection with tbe murder, having been inflicted eight months previous to the commission of that horrid crime, was, nevertheless, dragged into trial, and was, in fact, the only evidence adduced to support the plea of moral Insanity, on tho part oi the prisoner. On Monday last, ex-Governor Seward, counsel forthe prisoner, occupied upwards of eight hours in summing up. His review of the testimony for the prosecution was remarkable only lor his wholesale abuse of each and all ol the witnesses ; and his argument, if argument it was, had equally as much relation to the question of I public schools, in this State, or that of repeal in Ire land, as it had to the murder of Gordon. The District Attorney, Luman Sherwood,summed up in about four hours. He took a philosophical and strict ly ha^oal view of the case, divesting the subject of all traneoui extraneous matter, and never once travelling out of the record, excepting to demolish the flimsy sophistries of I his antagonist. Judge Whiting, in his charge, which occupied over two hours, repeatedly reminded the jury that the plea of ] insanity, in order to be sustained, must be established beyond a doubt, by evidence ; but, notwithstanding that no proof was offered on that point, a minority of the jury oame to the conclusion that Wyatt was possibly insane, and thus far frustrating the ends of justice, and permit ting poor Gordon's blood to remain unavenged. Wyatt has been remanded back to State prison, to await a now trial next August. Bsi/riitoas, Fe T 7, 1840.

The weather since yesterday morn ing has been de cidedly the coldest of the season, and, ibis morning it : seems to be increasing in severity. A few more such days as to-day will block us up with ice for some time to come. The quantity of goods arriving in thia city from Phila delphia and New York, destined for the West and South is almost incredible. The F.riccson steamboat line from Philadelphia has, during the few ''.ays the boats have been running, landed at our wharves upwards of eleven 1 thousand boxes and bales, destined, principally, for the West, over the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad?the Penn sylvania canals being still ice-bound, with a probability of continuing so for a month to come. The House of Delegates of Maryland have passed a lew against imprisonment for debt, and there is a strong pro bability that it will also receive the sanction of the Se nate. The workmen are now engaged in laying the tele graph wires between this city end Philadelphia, so that you may soon expect to be in momentarily connection with Washington. Of course, the Htrald will use this as well as all other modes of rapid conveyance that costs money, with more freedom than all the New York press combined. In the County Court yesterday, Judge Legrand de livered the opinion of the Court in the case of the Mer ohants' Bank of Baltimore vs. The Bsnk of the United States. The opinion was very lengthy and able. It is in favor of the plaintiffs, and sustaining their demurrer. sfAn ardent young man, named Baer, from Havre de Grace, who was in attendance at the grand ball of the Indepeindent Greys, a few nights since, fell desperately in love with a lady to whom he had an introduction, I named Miss Cooper, daughter of Mr. John Cooper, on gmamflr " found it Howard street. After sleeping on his love, he grew no better, and net knowing how te fellow up his acquaintance, he sat down and wrote her a very respect ful letter, desiring a private interview,and sent it for de livery by a negro. The messengei -.llvered the letter 'a father, to the lady's father, who broke open the seal, read it, picked up his cane, and made the negro lead him to the person who sent the letter. They accordingly proceed ed to the National Hotel, on Pratt street, and the amo rous youth was pointed out to the enraged father, re clining on a sofa, and dreaming of the elysium of bliss to which a favorable answer wo ild lead him. The fa ther seized him by tbe collar, dragged him to his feet, and without a word of explanat.on, beat the poor fellow ' halt to death with his cane. All who know the charac ter of yoang Baer, are satisfied that his intentions were perfectlyhonorable.and that his ignoranoe of city usages alone caused him ail his trouble. By and bye, when he becomes a grand father, he will doubtless laugh heartily over his first courting expedition in Baltimore. The lady is beautiful, and generally goes ra, her beyond the lules of propriety in her manners, and doubtless|was as In fault as ha much In fault as her young admirer, who will bear the marks of his ardent pession for many nays to come, with no one to soothe bis sorrow.

Superior Court. Before Judge Oakley. Fee. 27.? Pearfll ve. lngtr$?ll.?In this caae. reported in yesterday's Herald, the jury found e verdict of $100 for plaintiff. Samuel Whitehead ve Henry F. Ketcham ? Tkia wai an action on a bond, for the recovery of the penalty, $6,600 It appeared that the plaintiff had eeld a farm in New Jeriey to defendant and Samuel $. Ketcham, now daceaaed. for $7,000 i that part of the pare hale money had been paid, and double security given for the remainder, viz: a bond, conditioned for the payment of $3,260, by inetalmente, and a mortgage on the land for the same num. The condition of the bond bed been violated, and plaintiff now bringe thia auit to re cover the penalty. The counael for the defeat!ant con tended that the plaintiff ahould not ane on the bond, un til he had failed in aatiafying hie claim by foreclosing the mortgage, especially aa he had been reluastad to proceed on the mortgage by defendant. The Vend was collateral to the mortgage, and ahould not be sued en until the principal security had been prosecuted. On the part of the plaintiff, it was denied that the bond was collateral. Per Curiam.?The bond is the principal debt. Aa the law used to be in our State, action might he brought on the bond, a bill of foreclosure be Sled in Chancery, and an action of ejectment|be brought on the mortgage All at the same time. But now the plaintiff must elect. All the notions of defendant's counsel, as to the bonds being collateral, are fallacious. As to the second point of the defence, that defendant requested plaintiff to foreclose the mortgage, it cannot avail: for it appears that the re quest was made for the defendant's own advantage, end not from a desire that plaintiff's claim should be dis charged. The counsel for defendant excepted to ell the points of the Judge's charge. On two of the issues pre sented to them, the Jury found for the plaintiff, and on the third for defendant. Various points of law and foot are mingled together in this case, end render it oempU eated. The trial will be resumed this morning at I# o'clock. Charles O'Conor, for plaintiff; James T.

This appears, is part of a debt of $4 ,000, alleged to have boon due to plaintiff by deceased, for goods delivered.
