J coot Auvocati?From the War Department, sir. Gen. Scott?1 have Men the paper, though I hare not read it. It may go for what its worth, which 1 , think in very little. } [Here a simile illumined the faces of the Court and the , counsel? the Judge Advocate, however, looking as 90- 1 lernu as if he were under aentence of death] .Gen. Pillow then renewed his motion (which we ! published when It was brut made, last week), and the papers were admitted by the Court. Captain K?:k under examination for tho defence? Q.?Did the witness hear Gen. Soott ask Gen. Pillow why he hud. not advanced Capt. Ker'? command of dragoon* ; if so what was the reply ? A ?I did hear Gen. Scott ask Gen. Pillow why he had not advanced those dragoons. Gen. Pillow replied tjut tho road was impracticable. U-?Had the witness in person, or had ho caused an officer under his command. 1111 ilgu US"4kgS tfon General Pillow, to reconnoitre the ground upow the aid* of the Fed regal, occupied by the dragoons, for some praotlew-- \ hie route for dragoons to cross, and eould And none ; aud was that fact made known to Gen. Scott or not ? A.?Yes. 1 asked Gen. Pillow to advance my command. and be ordered me to send an officer to And a practicable route. When Gen. Scott came upon the field, he asked why the dragoons were not sent forward, ' and was told by Gen. Pillow that there was no praoMp*bin route. He also sent an officer to reeonuoitrHrod 1 see if he could find a road. 1 don't recollect now, whether it was an officer of his staff or one of the dragoon officers, who returned and made the same report. <t.?Has witness a knowledge of the fact, that Gen. Pi'low once or twice sent a staff officer with orders to General Twiggs, and that officer returned and reported that he could not find Gen Twiggs ! A.?Ye*. 1 think Capt. Hooker of Gen. Pillow's staff was ordered to the front to commnnieate with Oenoral Tw'ggs. I think he was ordered to the front to communicate with Gen. Twiggs. I think, he was ordered to ask why Gen Twiggs had not assaulted the work In front. .The staff officer returned and reported that he had reached the field, but eould not find Gen. Twiggs : that he had found tho second in command, General Persifor F Smith. ' Jen. Scott?'There is a good deal of hearsay in all this. Mr. President. Gen. Pillow?There is no hearsay in his stating the a facts. It is no akin to hearsay ! The witness contined. He said that the reason which /'Annurn 1 Smith i/ava vliv tho tvnrlr havi nnt. h?an assaulted, whs the fane that prevented the cavalry from nssaultiug his command, namely, the intervening ravine. Q.?Witness will reflect a moment, and say whether it was Capt. Hooker or Lieut. Ripley, who was charged with the orders to Gen. Twiggs T A.?I think Capt. Hooker, though 1 may be mistaken. Q.?Did witness leave Mexico under written permission from Gen. Scott? A.?Yes. I was ordered to New Orleans to and report to the Adjutant General by Gen. Soott. Cross-examined by the prosecutor. A I1ASTV SCENE?rtSTOUS TOR TWO. Q.?Has or has not the credibility of the witness before some former court martial or court of Inquiry, been directly impeached by the evidence of oue or more brother officers, specially called to impeach the witness's credibility ? Captain Kkr?(the witness)? I have no objection to answer that question; but I believe that it was offered to in,alt mo ! It's very unbecoming in the Commander-in-Chief of the army. General Scott?I am under the protection of the Court; but in the absence of the Court 1 can defend myself with my sword ! General Towson?'The Court cannot pats over the remark of General Scott, that if the Court does uot protect him. he can deleud himself.' Giueral Scott?I beg pardon, sir, I said,in the absence at the Court?iu the absence of the Court, I eould protect myself. The Co-'rt bowed its satisfaction at the correction. The witness answered as follows :? A ?I have no objection to auswer the question, MR 1 think it U done to insult me. 1 answer, no, never! It has uover beuu attempted, and I defy General Scott or auy one else to show a particle of evidence to impend) my testimony. (? re rid Scott, (to the Court)?I give notice, sir. that i have summoned two or three witnesses to impeach the credibility of this witness. I expect one of them to arrive this afternoon. General Pillow?By what authority do you go on summoning witnesses ? General Scott?The Judge Advocate summoned m them tor me. General Pillow?He rofused to summon any for me fc -the sario purpose. Jponx Advocate?I summoned the witnesses for Gon. Scott, by order of the Pretident of the Court. Gen. To v.-sox?The Court had reasons for refusing to summon toe witnesses you (Geu. Pillow) refer to. We did uot wish to go into the consideration of that subject. Gen. Pillow?That's sufficient, sir. The Court asked Gen. Scott if ho desired to put any more questions to the witness. Gen. Scott?No. sir. I'll ask him no further questions. Gen. Pillow asked leave of the Court to rend a few extract* from a work whi?h would doubtless be considered good auth( .iiy by tbo prosecutor, us it km writteu by a pupil of ins.

(By the defenoe )?The prosecutor (Gob. Scott) is further croea-exauiinud. and ia aaked if Gen.

A.? IV c had at h <ad quarters, contradictory information iu respect to the cannon foundry near to Chapultopcc. and witliin long reach of lta guna I do not rcin' iubor to have received that information that the que-tion cails for from General Pillow, and much lesa ul ?he precise time meutioned but between, any the 4t!i and the 7th of September, at 12 o'clock at night, through some source, possibly, nay probably.

On the other hand, within the same period, on a Sunday night, the 5th or flth of September, I Hud information from two persons that came tome from the city, representing that many bells had been dismounted from flic steeples of churches, within the two or wiroe nays tnci ?i?s? .

Pillow gam witness tu the night of the 7th. the first Information ho had received, that that machinery was run by a watorpower. which could he easily turned off, and the machinery thus rendered powerless. * .?The sit intention repeating the water power, and the practicability of cutting off the water, came to me through several sources, and very probably through Maj. (Jen Pillow, also. Hut It was supposed at head(junr'erH. finally, tlist there wore finished guns, or guns nearly finished, which had not yet been carried to the rtty ' <J.~Does the wltnosf know, or has he information upon nliicli he relies, that the boring machinery was not found In the foundry when that work was pone trated; and after the American army entered the eity, that 'his machinery was there found ? A.?The uiaehinery I had no doubt had been carried Into the r i ty of Mexico, prior to the enrrying of the foundry on i ha morning of the 8th. and I became perfectly ....... ,i ,,,, 11,.. ml, ? 1 Nsntrmhnr. that the information I hnd received about thn transportation of the bolls from the city to the foundry was inaccurate The machinery was subsequently found in the city, and not In the citadel. Q.?The witness will state whether or not Oeneral Pillow, on the night of the 10th August last, when reported t > hnn at San Augustine, did he (Oen. Pillow) advise liim to withdraw tne troops ftom the Tillage of Ku?aMa, or any portion of the field of battle of Con\ trrras? A. He did not say a word upon the subject, to the best of my knowledge and belief, on either side of that question. Q.Does witness know the fact that General Pillow did not visit his head-quarters at Taouhaya. after he seized on the morning of the Bth Sept, until late at night. on tho 11th September, when he moved his command to that place. In obedience to the orders of wit noes, preparatory to the assault# open Chapultepec }. A. After having had the benefit of nraoh reflection on the subject of that question. I have boen long persuaded that Major Geueral Pillow was with me at my quarters st Tscubaya. on the afternoon of the 7th Septi in twr; again onrc or twice on the ftth, and not again r nil I the evening of the 11th. Q. Did witness not instruct General Pillow on his visit to I'iedad on the Vtth Sept.. to be oonstantly with his command, saying, that as his position was in the advance ofths American forces, directly In front of the enemy's main forces, and In close Juxtaposition thereunto. that he wanted General Pillow to be constantly with his command; that, he would be careful not to engage or provoke a conflict with the enemy, but. If k? wan attacked, to maintain kit at all ba - im? i.WH'.'iiiin1 e :ne .x .. - i zsrds, and to do 10. the commands of Generals Twiggs and Quitman were sent along, subject to bi? order*. A.?Substantially I can answer the whole question in the affirmative?one alight modification not material. to wit: that he was to call for Major Oen'l. Quitman's and Brig. Oen'l. Twigg'a division*, in the first Instance without reference to me, to save time, according to the pressure of oircuoMt^oea. reporting to me of course. any order* that be might find it necessary to wend to divisions of Quitman and Twiggs. Q.?In the official report of witness, of tbn 10th Aug. is found the following passage. vie : "It w.j already dark, and the cold wi had begun to fall in torrents upon our unsheltered troops for the hamlet, though a strong, defensive position, can hold only the wounded men, and unfortunately the new regiments hare little or nothing to eat in their havereaelu, wet, hungry and without the possibility of sleep: all our gallant corps I learn, are full of confidence and only wait for tbn fast, hour of darkness to gain ths positions whenoe to storm and carry the enemy's works." lias witness any ryeeon now to doubt ths correctness of this statement in hie official report? A.?That report, upon ite face, shows, and that is the truth, that it waa commeuoed on the night of the 19th, and also ehows that it waa conoluded, nay, mainly written subsequently ; 1 have no reason to dovbt the accuracy of the part quoted, exoept, perhaps, that the new troops were not universally quite so destitute of food as 1 had supposed, and also, that mauy individuals found the means of sleeping a little, notwithstanding the rain and cold, and want of shelter, as I was happy, subsequently, to learn ; I bad issued a very special order wbioh was also a standing order, that morning, for two day's rations cooked, to be taken by the men in their haveraacks. 4 ?Had Gen. Pillow, under the orders of witness, aaeewd early ia the morning of the 19th of August, towards the battle-field of Contreraswtth speoial instructions fer his guidance in his duties ia every contingency. which was likely to arise, and had he, from haviOg been on that field early >n the day. enjoyed better opportunities than any other general-officer to reconnoitre the enemy's position, and the field operations ? Av? 1 can answer th? question generally?yes, and hence on my joining him near the enemy, at a later hour of the day. the many Inquiries I made of him in respedto the position of onr own troops and those of the edemy. I did not see any other general-officer on t e Held than Oen. Pillow, exoept Gen. Shields, later in the evening, who received his instructions fro.n me. Lieut. Col. Talcott, chief of ordnance, sworn for the prosecutor. Q.?The witness will please look at the printed letter now handed to him. and say what he knows of the same, and the way in which it fopud its war to the press ? A.?That letter I received from Capt. Huger ; it was published without my knowledge or consent, nor did I know of Its publication till some week* afterwards. 1 had no agency in its publication, and have only hearsay remarks to guide me in supposing how it found its way into the papers. Q.?If the witness did not himself eause the letter to be published, did he place it on file in the ordnance department, or what did he do with the letter ? Was it purloined from his office ? A ?.The original I sent to the wife of the writer, who desired to hear from her husband. A copy was sent to a Northern arsenal, as it contained a sentence not published in relation to gun carriages made at that arsenal. a rotwt of gai.i.aivthy. Oen. Scott desired to put a point blank question as to who published the letter. Oen. Pillow?I object to that qnestion?it's illegal. Oen. Scott.?Mr. President, a lady is now involved in the matter, and it is due to her that the question should be answered. Oen. Pillow.?1 don't mean to say it ts important ; but I am opposed to improper questions being put. Col. Talcott.?My life for it, the lady did not furnish the letter ! Oen. Scott ?Mr. Judge Advocate, take that down. He says the lady did not get It printed. The Court permitting, the witness answered as follows :? A.?The letter, I am satisfied, was not published by the lady, uol by Major Baker. 1 sent all the original letters from her husband, of which I received many, to her, and kept copies. <1.?To wnat Northern arsenal did the witness send the letter, and who was the commander of the arsenal? A.?Watervliet arsenal?Major Baker commands it Q.?As far as the witness has any reason to know, was the publication of the letter made from the original. or the copy transmitted to Major Baker ? A. ?From the copy, undoubtedly. <d.?Did the writer of the letter (Capt. Huger) request the witness to publish or transmit the letter in question to Major Baker, or was the transmission of the copy the act of the witness himself, as Chief of the Ordinance and for the benefit qf the public service ? A.?The captain made no .request on the subject, and had no knowledge of it. As before stated, it contained a sentence in relation to the gun carriages made at that post, and it was therefore sent for the benefit of the service. Q ? Are not both the witness and Major Baker the superior officers of Captain Huger. and all of the same corps! Further, is there any rdhs in the army gonerally, or in the ordnauee department particularly, which makes a junior officer responsible for the aet of his superior.' A.?Yes. we fine of the same corps. Huger is the junior of the thffipi. do not consider ajunior responsible for the act of asenior. I know of no such rule. <1.?Does the witness remember the 'newspaper in which he first saw the letter in question? If ?o, what what newspaper was it? A.?I cannot recollect. I think it was the Albany Argut or Journal. It was an Albany paper, at all events. Crott-txaminri by thr U'fenct?t^.?Does the 292d paragraph of army regulations apply to the whole army?your corps as well na others, and to the line of the army generally? A.?I presume it docs. Q ?When the officers of your corps are In the Held on duty with the army inactive operations, is there any principle or usance of the service which would au'horliie 'official reports to he sent direct to you as chief >f the bureaux?or slmu.d they be made, as the rep rts uf other staff officers, to the commanding General, and come through him to the War Department, aud thence died in your offleet A.?The officers of ordnance are required to make special reports directly to me of all such matters as pertain exclusively to ordnance, such aa the good or bad quality of arms and ordnance stores. Thoy are also required, by regulations, to make the usual monthly reports. Likewise to keep me informed of the state of the supplies furnished by the ordnance department They make their reports of the operations in the field , the General in command ; they are his officers, and no. mine, in the field. Q,.?Witness will state if that letter referred to was an official report, signed officially, or addressed official, ly; or was It a private letter, addressed to you an a friend of the writer, and sfgued u nofficially. If the letter had been official, would you have sent It off to t h" wife of the writer, or would you have filed it in your bureau T A.?It was a private, confidential letter, intended to give nc Information which 1 could not otherwise obtain. It was not placed on the files of the office, not being official. Examination in chief resumed. Q ?Was or not the letter In question in some degree a substitute for the regular official report that might be due to the chief of the ordnance department; and did not the letter contain many facte of official Importance to tho deportment, beaides the portion the witneaa hu apectfled In reapeet to timber or gun carriage* ? A.--It wm ao. a* the flrat part of the letter Indicate!. 1 mean. It waa a anbatltnte for the regular report.

A.?Thia letter waa written by me. and to Col. Abort, to the beat ef my recollection. I don't know, except from the information given me by ray Colonel, how it came Into the public pre**. He told me particularly how it came to oe publiahed. Gen Pillow objected to witneaa atatlng what Col. Aberthad told him. Col. Abert could be called to toetlfy to that, If ncceaeary. Gen.

Oen Scott?In that cae*. I hare no farther question to put ; bat I think, with all respect to the Court, that it is a hardship the witness cannot be allowed to explain his position.

(J.?Will witness sar If the regulations of which he speaks as requiring of nlm to make reporte. require that he ehall report the movements and operations of the army generally throughout the campaign?giving an account of the different battles with minuteness, the forces engaged, kc .kc ?or does It require him to report matters pertaining to the duties of his own oorps ?

I have no copy of it with me. il.?Did the witness request the chief of his corps to publish the original letter (n question, or did the witness transmit any copy of that letter to Col. Abert, his chief, or to any body else? A.?I answer no. to the whole question. den. Scott?Mr. President, 1 trust if Col. Abert does not come?and the only reason 1 can imagine fer his not Coming, Is that tne War Department will not allow him to do so?that Major Turnbull will be allowe to give his evidence on the subject after Colonel Abert; his testimony is the best that can be produoed. as to the publication of the letter. I understand the Secretary of War has also been summoned by the defence. I should like to see the Secretary of War on the stand. His presence will not intimidate me. Gen. Pillow?It is not my business to defend the Secretary of War, hut (must say, the remarks just made are very uncalled for. Gen. Scott?1 will state what is tiue. and not be Intimidated by any one. Gen. Pillow?Nor I either, sir. Gen. Towion- 1 must repeat, that if the Court cannot have its rules and Itself respeoted, it will have to adjourn and report tho matter to the proper authorities. If Col. Abert comes. Major Turnbull will not be required; and if he does not, Major Turnbull can be called up again. Gen. Scott?i havo summoned two or three witnesses, to speak as regards the credibility of the first witness on the stand to-day (Capt. Ker.) Tho most distant is in Washington, and another is in Baltimore. I require the tcstlmouy of Dr. Lawson, who is not present I will not ask the Court to call Dr. Lawton if ho be not here to-morrow. ^Bb.

A.?I hara known him slnoe 1830, and since lb. the same regiment with him. He has been under u.. command more than a year. Q.?What has been the general reputation of Capt. Ker, in the 2d Dragoons, for truth and reraoity ??and nlso in the opinion of the witness ? Gen. Pillow objected to the form of the question. Gen. Scott defended the form. The court decided that the question should be put divided To the first branch of tho question the witness answers : - The general reputation of Capt. Ker for truth and veracity, In the Second Dragoons, is not good. To the second branch of the question the witness says, " and my own opinion is tho same." Question by the Defencs?In a matter in which Capt. Ker had uo personal interest, could you believe him under oath ? A.-Yes. Question by the Prosecutor.?In a matter where tho interests, resentments, or prejudices of Captain Ker might be concerned, would the witness believe the said Ker under oath ? A.?Not implicitly. I would have very little confidence in his testimony. Brevet Lieut. Col. J. Duncan re-called for the defence. Q.?is the witness aoquainted with Mm general character of Qapt. Ker for veracity. If so, would he believe him upon his oath ? A?I havo known Capt. Ker since the autumn of 1835. or in the early part of 183d. thave never known his character for veracity, or as a man of honor, to be impeached, or atteinp od to be impeached, and I would believe him on his oath, under all circumstances.

Long before ten o'clock, the hour appointed for the, services to commence, the house was Mledto overflowing by tho?e devotcdfnilowers of the Catholic religion who wished to pay the last tribute of resect to him who had so often administered, in years past, to them the sweet words of love and consolation, and a feeling of sorrow seemed to pervade the whole assembly At half-past ten o'clock, the Right liev Dr. Byrne, Bishop of Little ltock, entered the altar, followed by the Rev.

Otmaenik llatlttcatlon MnUng at Military Chtrden, Braaklyn, The demoerati of Brooklyn assembled last night at Military Garden, for the purpose of responding to the nomination* made by the Baltimore Convention. At the hour appointed, there were only eoine twelve or fourteen person* at the place. and one man remarked. tun ii< rnuiiuucu aim very niiicn 01 a who, wncro unman hail died poor, anil with v<py few friends. About 9 o'clock. however. tyare had assembled about two hundred person*, all of whom seemed anxious thut business should be proceeded with. A motion was then made, and the msettag was organised by calling I Hon. Thomas O. Tsi.uioaa to the chair, who, in a Tory brief speech, tendered hie thanks for the honor | conferred upoAbim. SovtnJ Vice rreeidents aud Secretaries were Ujeu unanimously appointed. A committee of Ave Were Mien appointed, who retired for the purpose of drawing up resolutions William MoMuUsr, kfltii of New York, was then introduced to the mheuibly. who said: Kellow-citiseu* of Brooklyn We uu again called on to join in one of those periodical tuMmhs where parties are arrayed and those issues wilt lasHhrever. Our enemy is the same now as they weyc ieMlmes past, whatever may be ths difference ofaqpie. The time is coining when the two parties will m?Ai to the ballot box; therefore, let not a single deiuodfiat prove traitorous to his cause. Since my political eapor, I have beau a doin >erat. and always adhered to patty nominations; and. as a democrat, woald rally to the standard of the principles and usages of the party. 1 have found it safe to adhere to party nominations, though we may not coincide In opinion with the choice of the Convention in 1843, 1 was faviwable to the nomination of New York's favorite son (applause); but the Couvbntirn chose another before him. and I submitted to the will of the majority; and had I done otherwise, I should have been ashamed to show my face in your midst to-night, i renounced my allegiance to my idols of the democratic party. We have a new career before us, and when 1 look around, and see these who have succeeded under the sanction of party, I have looked upon them as unworthy the cause. When Pelk was nominated, we wept that the son rf New York had been forsaken; but we wont in for Polk and Dallas, and by the vote of New York these men were elected. Had you repudiated that nomination. Henry Clay would have been President, and you would have had a United .States Bank, And the other principles opposed to the liberty of the people. By the administration of James K. Polk, what glory has been reflected upon the ooun- | try! We have an independent treasury, and the accession of a vast domain. I would urge you to adhere to the nomination of Cass and Butler, and if any man should advise you to go against them, 1 would advise you to look upon that man with suspicion f-r he Is no democrat. Let " m hold their UtieaCom entlon. and nominate their ket.

Or uncut, li low oltizci ind I will close. 'Our party .,1 regular nominations, now and forever." The following resolutions wero then presented by the anittee to whom had been assigned the duty of preparing them:? Resolved, That the local divisions which have existed in this State, and which prevented the voioe of New York from being d with all its usual potonoy, in the late National (ionu, are deeply regretted by the democracy of Urooklyn, and ' would gladly extend to our old frionda and associates the ad or fellowship; that we believe with them, that slavery : evil and should rejoice to see It aoufined to the narrow': but that we eauuot oonssnt to make this question a irty fealty in the election of a 1'resident, whose duty it ore ide over tlie destinies of the whole nation ; to lie the executive of the South as well as the North, and to guard the compromises of the National Constitution. Resolved, That the men put forth hy the late Baltimore Convention an our standard bearers in the approaching Presiibantial elcoti n, have long been known as aonnd, reliable, able and consistent democrats; that the uation has unwavering confidence in thoir principles, patriotism, integrity and moral worth; and that we, the democracy of the aity of Brooklyn, hail with nnmiugled satisfaction the nominations of lewis Cass, of Michigan, and William O. Butler, of Kentucky, and will give to these distinguished siatesmen and gallant defenders of our country, in peace and in war, a warm and oordial support. Resolved, That the democratic party still maintains the old ground of adhesion to principles rather than to men; and that in sustaiuing the nomination or dm. Case and (Jen. Butler, they tuttaiu the principles whioh they hare borne aloft through long years of oonfliot an. trial; that they are o|iposed to tho creation of large corporations with special privileges and powers; that they maintain their old hostility to a national bank; that ahey eannot yield their support to a tariff for the protection of one class at thu expense of another; that thuy cherish with pride those ridicsl measures whioh have given us an equal and Just tariff, a diverse of the treasury from tho banks, and tlie olectiou of all public officers by the people; that we believe thu late war to l ave boon brought upon us, as declared in Congress, by the act of Mexico; that it was conducted on cur pert with bravery, humanity, and success, and has been brought to a glorious and lienors le conclusion, by the heroic gallantry of our noble army. Resolved. That Useeaam|d? ?f tbt? much ubnatdibut over glorious republic, la die leaven which has long been secretly at work in die rotteu and o. rrupt systems of the old world; that under its influence these systems arc heaving and rooking to their ffnal fall, that the liberties and rights of men are beooming more and more respected; and that it becomes the democratic party, as thu great agent through which this mighty work has been wrought, still to maintain Its high and commanding position, and to be now, as ever, the party of liberty, equality, and progress. Dr. PxLMrn hare offered some resolutions, which bad been previously adopted by a meeting of the democrats of the Second Ward, touching favorably upon the Wilmnt proviso, when the greatest couMmon prevailed, and cries of" Lay them on the table," fung from every quarter, and so great became the excitement, at length, that a fight ensued; but the hunkers being much the stronger, of course the opposite party were speedily put out of the house. The confuaiou coutinued. and a general row was anticipated,when Lorenzo B. Sheppard roRe to address them, before the decision upon the resolutions. Here a new difficulty sprang up. A Mr. Church denied the right of any man to creak before the resolutions had been acted upon, lie, however, was jiut down. ' .Mr. SiiLPfAKn proceeded. He said: Fellow citizens ? I came here to address you on the subject and incite you to stick to the nominations of Cass and Butler, and not upon any local subject; and if uny gentleman does n?l null f,, ho-ll-mo I will Inl-a ml- s,.nt ( fin r. n .... on.") In this contest everything should be sacrificed to harmony and principle. For fifty years we have been in a state o*'progression, and If we would keep together. we should nold to the usages of the party (\ fight b?re began, and f >r a half hour there was utter confnsian. wt.h cries of 1'ut him out?put him out," ' the resolution, the resolution." "If Or Palmer offered that resolution he h id better get out," ' the preriou question " "the question ") The reading of the resolutions was then called for and after some murmuring they were almost unani mouslv passed wh'le the resolutions from the Second Ward were laid on the table. Mr sHr.rrsRn continued-If we hire d!<cord in "U own ranks, it I* a sure way to give a whig rlctory I am proud of your action and I snail leave here to-night with a feeling of warmer fr endship fur you. There ir a division in (hi > St ite. hut it does uot extend beyond the limits of the State, and if you go across th- water to New Vork. y >u will find tho prominent barnburners, with few exceptions, are going fir Cass and Butler They are willing to sacrifice their Idol for tffe success of democratic prinoiples. Who is Lewis Cass 1 Is he not a democra. ? ( Ves. a tip-top one !") Tel, he is a democrat, and his principles are endorsed by Andrew lackson. Hu has supported the domocratio faltli. His voice lias been heard in the Senate, in defence of the soldiers of Mexico. He cortcs before you with bis principles known, and he has not to bide any of them. He is a lnau who will be remembered, long and long after we are laid in our graves. Da.vikl E. SicKuii.

The meeting wan very full, and the hall, were It Ave timei as large, eould not have contained the eager spirit* who crowded for an entrance. In the afternoon, the ' terrific Irish pike," decorated with tho tri color of Ireland?green, white and orange?was paraded by an enthusiastic crowd, with drums and fifes, through the city; and. as they passed the Herald office, they gave three hearty Irish eheeri, and then marched onward. At the meeting there was an enthusiasm which would have shaken the rery nerves of the Knglish government itself, and which was occasioned by the physical force demonstration in favor of the martyr. John Mitchel. ' Ireland's future first President of the United Irish Hepublic." as he was styled by one of the eloquent speaker*. The " Irish Brigade " was scattered through the meeting, on duty, and there was present an Immense and an extremely excited crowd. The spirit-stirring drum gave a character to the phrenriod cheers of the meeting, which shuonld he beard to be appreciated. T.

William Wriuer?Thla was an action of asaumait brought against the defendant, in hia individual oapaclty, for gooda furnished to his testator. It appeared, that defendant was appointed executor to a man named Kbits, and that he, the defendant, authorised a Mr, Paige to call on plaintiff, who la an undertaker, to furnish the materials for the fnneral of Khita. The plaintiff aocordingljr fornlslied all things neeeeaary. Including carriages, &c., for which he claims $150. The defence was, that defendant ought to be sued as eseeutor, and that he had no assets in his hands. The plaintiff, in reply, relied upon the individual undertaking of the defendant, and also showed that he had assets of the testator. Verdict fur plaintiff, $158. Samutl Bell and George H. Polls ri. John Quinn.? This was an action on a promissory note, for $1178 21, made in August, 1842, by tbe defendant, payable to Williams & Ferguson The signature to the note was admitted. The defence was as follows: Williams and Ferguson were coal merchants, and, for some time previous to 1842. had a contract for xupnlylng tbe Alms House Department with coals. In the year 1842 Mr. Williams was elected an assistant alderman, in consequence of which the contract for that yo&r could not be taken out In the names of the firm of Williams and Ferguson. They applied to the defendant, who was also in the coal business, and entered into an arrangement with him to get the contract in his name, and to divide the profits. The defendant, in pursuanen of that arrangement, got the contract from the Alms House Department, to fnrnishlbetween three and four thousand tons of coal. Tbe defendant delivered the coals, and received his pay. and npon winding ue the affair, made the uote in suit, being for half the profits, In some time after. Williams aud Furgnson handed over their assets to plaintifh, for the benefit of their creditors, amongst which was this note; and the plaintiffs now bring suit on behalf of the creditors of Williams and Ferguson. The defendant's counsel insisted the note was illegal, and void, under the statute, and that tbe action could not be maintained. The statute, which he read, expressly declared that no alderman. or assistant alderman should be directly or indirectly concerned in any contract with the olty government, where money was to be paid under a city ordinance. He then provod the ordinance under which the price of the coals was paid to defendant The Judge intimated bis opinion that the action could not be maintained, but as plaintiff's counsel wished to bring the case before a full court, ho would direct the lore til Ami u fi.? ,,1.. 1 KT., II... f-J ?

She teatlilnd that deceased was always healthy, and had only a cold at thla time, before her death. The prosecution here rested. Mr. Brady moved the discharge of Dr. Onion, on the ground that there was no law to reach the ease. Dr. Guion was not in the store at the time of the sale of the medicine. The doctor had kept a store for twelve years in this eity. There waa no law?no precedent? no principle to at all connect him with the matter. If such a principle of law was held, the jury themselves could be arraigned on such a charge. Mr. B. here oited authority In support of his position. The ease of Dr. Guion was here wnt to the jury as a separate iesue. The Court, considering there were no ground* to put the doctor on hi* defence, the jury, unhesitatingly, rendered a verdict of not guilty, without leering their seat*, and Dr. Guion waa discharged. Mr. Child*, on part of Dr. Brayton. here rose, and contended that hie client was equally entitled to discharge. on the gronnds of professional privilege, fco. Mr. McKros replied, when the defenoe was gone into.
