We are indebted to the Purser of the Black Warrior for file* of Havana papers and ether attentions. - We tare received our uiual flies of Havana papers up to the ilth of May. We do net find in then any news of 'importance.

OVB HAVANA CORRESPONDENCE. Havana, May 28, 1855. The Correspondent! of the Nf<v York Papers ? Tlu-ir Stale men Is?AavaJ Intelligence, <?c. Yoa will pleaie permit me a few words for the advise ment ot a naval sprig, who has been so much at at* and bo actively employed in the service of his country that he has not quite kept up his reading of facta. Being at the Domtnica, I chanced by a table thronged with but'nna, and while sipping mj granizado lemonade I eonld but 'iBten to the adjacent wisdom wliiih was not nnder blockade, but making good a aiege upon suadry things omnipotent as punch. One remarks:? "It is oertainlr veiy pleasant here. How much belied these Bpaniatda are by those villanoua letter writers." *' Yes,'' responds whiakers, face growing more ruddy while the whole whiskerando blushed Intensely, "yes, they have been the whole cause of the misunderstand ing between the United States and Spain, which ia giving ns all to much trouble;" and another, more delicate, of smalitr texture, looking quite medical withal, con tinued, '? They have invented a thousand storiee, which we find untrue as soon as we get upon the ground to examine for ourselves." Down went the liquid, more than I thought the case could hold, but he was only taking breath. "My prescription would be for the Concha parole to them all." Such are the conversational facts of thli party, and it ia all ve-.T well, with a grain of allowance for the sake of my throat, which is quite sensitive to the love em brace they would commend. As they all read the, I beg to assure them? with reference to the files at the State Department at Waahington to verify my worue? that it wai not the letter writers from Ha vana w.c murdered the American sailor at the steps of the office of the Captain of the port aome years since it was a Spanish sol tier, and the government of the United t-.ates was humbugged to believe that punish ment for me crime was inflicted. Ssatense was passed not equal to the enormity of the offence, and royal clemency saved the culprit from tne award, with subse quent promotion. It was not the correspondent* who abductel Key from New Orleans, but they exposed the nefarioi s transaction, and aided the indefatigable Con sul Geceral Campbell in ferreting out the fa;ts here, and compelling his return. Tney did not incar cerate Buab, steward of the bark Chille Harold for no otlence, la the royal prison, but they stated .the facts, subsequently confirmed oy the records of this government, as well as that of the government at Washington, and were of material service in procuring bis release. They did not take the bark Georgiana ana brig Susan Loud, at Contoy, on neutral waters, without Spaoiah jurisdiction, with sums forty- five or fifty inno cent persona, brought hesre to be tried for their Uvea. That was done under the administration of the Condi: Aleoy, by the Admiral of the station, anl the cruelties committed by his offisera upon the victims were never revealen by the exaggerations of the correspondents. They endeavored to be truthful for the honest discharge of their duties to their country. A free people have the right to know fll the facts bearing upon their social and commercial welfare. They did not massacre the America ns at Ataves, er desecrate their remains? Span iards did? and the whole story waa never painted to zeech the verity of the facte in thia grand fraud upon ?**ud national honor. They did not invent the Warrior case, or the untrutds and forgeries in that relation uttered by higb and responsible officer* of the Spanish government, and admitted as groea wrong-doing by the government at Madrid, with a promise of indem nity which is never to be realized by fulfilment. They did none of the violations upon the high seaa which have rightly claimed the attention of Mr. Marcy? they did not invent them. Ihey did not tear down the coat of arms of tbe Union with indignity from the walla of a Consular office, which had been transmitted by the go vernment itself from Waahington, to be placed where it waa found by Spanlah officials ; nor did they drag Mr. Thompeon from Sagna la Grande to the city of Havana, a prisoner. Theae are no inventiona? although they may not reach tbe sense of national dignity wnich should tone the miada of the public servants of the country. They did not drag a poor invalid from Puerto Principe to Havana, to anawer for the. crime of having the name of Feck, which Spanish intelligence thought might mean Fickett. They did not say or invent " that the beat ma terial for cleaning Spanish swords waa Yankee blood!"? that was the opinion of Adniral Bustillo? I think. Some thousand other items, of like character, are reserved, ahould it be necessary for the conviction of naval officers, that none of the marders and other outrages here bave been committed by the correspondents at Havana. The United Statea steam frigate San Jacinto, Stribling commander, and Commoiore McCauley, left port On the evening of the 24th, and arrived at Matan xas on the morning of the 26th. Same evening, and in com pany with the San Jacinto, aailed the United Statea war steamer Fulton. Mitchell commander, alao at Matan 7 as In equal time. The sloop of war Cyane, Commander Wilsen. left on a cruise morning of the 26th, losing the opportunity of Sunday fellowship with their British friends, who are gathering thick and fast to see what la not to be, 2Ctb, arrived the British ,war steamer Medea, Fhilifanore commander, from Bermuda.

So we are leading off | in a eh a in country dance, without any regular ball. I bave tbe pleasure of stating that there is no aickneas aboard of any of the vessels of the two squadroas? the protectorate or Jonathan's ? all in good order for any service or duty that may be required of gool men.

Inauguration of tlie Woman's HoipltaL A large number o? ladies and gentlemen, inclu ling D. | D. Conover, President of the Board of Councilman, several member* of the Boards of Aldermen aud Councllmen, and ntnny of the loading medical men of the city, assembled in the parlor of the Woman's Hospital, No. 83 Madison avenue, yesterday morning, to witness the formal opening of the inititution. The ceremonies commenced at 11 o'clock, Dr John W. Francis, Pref ident ofths Medical Board of the Institution, | taking the chair at the request of the meeting. The exercises were opened with prayer by Rev. Dr. Knox, after which Dr. Francis made a brief a^dre?*, explanatory of the purposes of the association, which he stated to be the securing for a class of very difficult and hitherto incurab.e surgical capes the necessary means to insure complete restoration. The diseases treated in this insti tution are those wholly peculiar to womsn, such as vesico vaginal fistula, ovarian dropsy, &c The present building, having been leased for a term of three vara by the association, composed entirely of ladies, lor the sum of $1,000 psi annum, will accommodate about forty patients. There are about twenty already la the wards, some ot whom have been operated on and are rapidly solng forward to a cure under the admirable treatment ot Dr. J. Marlon Bias, the attending surgeon, to whose indefatigable zeal and enthusiastic devotion woman owes this first and successful attempt to establish a hospiUl speciaUy de voted to her benefit, under aU the forms of disease to which a be is liable. Dr. Francis continued his "marks in toe same vein, illustrating the beneflacnt character of the prtsent enterprise, and demonstrating the neces sity for such an Institution In a city so vast as New ^*I)r 'Horacs Grke.v. President of the New York Medic il College, followed Dr. Francis In some highly instructive and pertinent remarks, ba*ed up?n Ma ? Mpwience, as to the necessity of increased special hospital acillties, and commending very highly tae surpassing skill exhibit ed in the successful treaimentof this class of terrible dis eases by his friend Dr. Sims. Dr. Green was listened to with marked attention during his address. Dr. Gilmas, of the College o.' I'hysiciaos and urgeons, next addressed the meeting, with some practical re marks endorsing to the fullest extent the sentiments of the preceding speakers and the purposes of the associa tion. He exhibited, tbroughcut his address, a liberality towards the enterprise, and assured the meeting that it had his most hearty and cordial co Wjntioa. Dr. Fostkr next took the floor, and related cidents of liis hospital experience while in Europe of attempts to establish wards for the exclusive treatment or this class of female diseases; all attempts, however, at cure proved failures until ths time of Dr. SlM discoveries. Dr. Foster spoke at some length, and finally ^Rsv^Dr! Knox, who made an exceedingly appropriate and feeling address, showing the beneficent character of Christianity in the development of atw?2t tiona among our people. The Rev. Dr. taia that ever the Bible i? and tbe bleewd Christian science has made its mightiest strides, an 1 humanity il lustrated Its noblest attributes. The speaker commend tdthe enterprise, pronouncing it eminently humane, and every way worthy of public countenance an I '"SrT E. H. Dixon followed Dr. Knox. He spoke ape ciallj of his acquaintance with Dr. Sims, ajtd.Sjf hia per severance and devoted enthusiastic labors for more than three veare prevlona to the completion of his discoveries, d uring tehlc^tlme he operate more than forty times unsucressfully, and In one case twenty one times, wh lie, with the methods resulting from these many and frying experiments, this Utter case now could be cured In two W D^.'sma next took the floor, deprecating the many compliments that bad been paid him by all the preceding speakers and said It Is to the moral power of woman, to her heroism, her extraordinary endurance of^nheardof sufferings, and to her devotion to the highest interests of humanity and her sex, the Woman a Hospital ow?s its existence This Institution is the creation of no man?ofnostt of men ? t o wr,m?n alone is it due To her sagacity, to her ardent sjmpat lues, and her en couraeing Bmlle, do I owe all toe suceess that 1 can claim. Without her aid, we should not have Msembled here to day, to commemorate the opening or thia Insti tution? to me the pleasantest event orxurrU* during my professional career in New York. Whea l see such men aa my venerable friends krancia, Delafield, Mott, Btevens, Green, GUman, Kamsay, Dixon, Gardner, Eoster, and others, around me, with encouraging word and smile, I have no language to express the Pjofonnd emotions that animate me. I feel an assurance that the sentiments I expressed before the asaem bled medical piofesslon of New York on the stormy evenin* < >f the 18th May, 1864, at Stuyvesant Institute a little more than one year ago, relative to the Importance o. estab lishing a great Woman's Hospital tn this city, -specially for the treatment of diseaaea .peculiar towomen, were aa good seed cast upon fs-llo* ground and that it bas sprung np and Increased more than a hundred fold. To the ladles of the aasoslation, many of w,l0m?"^1 fore me I may say that to woman 1 have never appealed in this cause in vain. In the nam. of humanity the tocsin haa never been sounded in her ear but she has re sponded with a heart r devotion beyond all praise. There one venerable friend whose pleaaant faoe and encoura^ ingsmllel mis. from this noble band to day-laUajCe to the first dlwctrsss, Mre . < Codwlse. That /I'hJlJVn! In spirit I have no doubt, and will rejoice most beattlljr in tEe complete success that has attended her noble ef forts to eatablish this institution. Other names l might mention among tbe absent, but perhaps it would be in vldlous under all the circumstances .yet I h#ar mentioning the nam# of mjr friend Mr? f. C ?? Ce present. Chairman of the Executive Commit Se, whose extraordinary exertions in ewy good and benevolent work are io well known in tbi? city. H?r hand her head and her heart, have been united la a continuous enJeavor to give form and P""1*"*?? to the Woman's Hospital. The results of ">eaeeom biaed influences will for years to come continue to > tell upo the interests of medical education; and aU parta ot our country and from all part* of the olrl Used world wlU reoeive the beneflta that wUl wult from the carefully conducted observationa oonnected with the various oases treated In this Institution, and they w go out among the families of all people, much more competent to meet and master what haa hitherto been among the insuperable difficulties of medical P?*tlee. In conclusion, Dr. Sims referred to the fact that the Board of Councllmen had unanimously resolved to do nate $2,500 In aid of the funds of the Institution. Dr. OAnmnm followed Dr. Bims, referring to the pre tended discoveries of Jobalre. as pre seated in his volu miaous Illustrated work, whleh had beea shown by Dr. Mott to be not reliable la numerous Instances, aad alto gcther useless as a system of practice la theee difficult eaaee. Dr. G. spoke several minutes, enforcing the ne cessity forsaeh aa Institution as the present The exercises concluded with pra*ar hy Ra?. Dr. Aluu Music and the Drama. 0TKK4 TROl'BLKS IN CALIFORNIA. The Pan Frnnciaco Chronicle of the 5th May, publishes a column or more of correspondence between Mr?. C. N. Sinclair (Forrest) manageress of the Metropolitan thea tre, and Mme. Barili Thorn, prima donna atsolula, of the Italian Ofers, Ban Francisco. It seems that the great difficult} in the above matter wan a chronic one ? a lack of iunds ? and that, on the occasion of the first night of "I Lombard!,' ' there waa trouble among the artiste, and the curtain did not ri?e until an hour after the tine anncunced. On the T hursday following, there was ao performance. There wtre a great man; appeals made to the public on both sides, hence tbe correspondence. ? The first Utter is one from Mr. Plaoel, who arranged tie scores for the orchestra. He could not get bit pay, ('1-0,) and so he refused to give up the soore. Tl'.s pistol shot is like the tapp'ng of the conductor'^ baton, and is followed by the subjoined grand crash fro 31 the whole orchestra:? TUK l'KIM A DONNA HT At.., TO TUB PUBLIC. Editors Chrcvv le: ? In my mme and those of the art sti who here lend me the support of their signatures, 1 have to aolic>t of your indulgf nee the insertion of the following lines ia your journal. They are called forth by the acrimonioas attacks recently made upon us bv two of your contem poraiiea? one a morning, ami the other an ?veniog pa per. 1 undertake to reply to them with great reluc tance, feeling it is not the part of a worn in who re u>ects her ?ex, to addict herself e ther to speech -mak ing or public controversy of any description. Who?, bowevtr, it is sought to build up the credit of the Me tropolitan theatre at my sxpenae, and that of th? ar tists vho compost the opera troupe, there remains but the other alternative? or appealing to a public from which we have, one and all, experienced unvarying ge cerosity and courtesy, apa'nst th? misrepresentations whiih teik to deprive us of its countenance and favor. Tt^e statement of tbe Evening Journal , that the Ita lian Opera Company had coit Mrs. Sinclair all that she h?d gained by the engagement of Mr and Mrs. Birney Willis nih, is incorrect. Since tbe departure of those ar tists the Italian* have perfoinied only thrice at tue Me tropolitan, and on those occasieos, to whom, it not the management, accrued the profit? Certainly not to us, for we have not jet received the salaries earael by us on the nights in question. Was it Mr. Lanzoni, tha Italian Opera troupe, or the management of the theatre wbo was tbe real beneficiary on the occasion of Mr. L?n zoni'fi benefit? The house wan crowded, after having been opened every night for the previous two or three weeks, to a score or two of persons. Nevertoeiesv the only benefit derived by tbe artist was the privilege of paying about two hundred dollars from his own pocket to cov*r expenses, while the house retained tbe hand some sum ot seven hundred dollars for rent, although then, sod still, indebted to Mr. l^nzoni for arrearages of salsiy long owen. The Italian Opera company cannot live upon promises, Very little is to Be obtained in the San Kraocisco, or any other maiket. with snch a currency. They cnunot be expected to sing for pasnme, nor solely and exclusively for the profit and beooof of a management. The editor of the Evening Journal does not consider our necessities, or if he dees, it may be that he generously proposes to defray all our expenses in ths absence of remunera tion lor our service* from his frisnds, of the Metro politan. When a re engagement of the Opera company was made, attrr abindoning the project of subscription, (tbe moral success of which was complete, although i'n practicable realization presented,) we agreed with Mrs. Sinclair for three representations of '? I Lom bard," the price for each beinc settled, and the manage ment 1 ngsgicg to puy tbe artists before the ris'.ng of the curtain This agreement was never fulfilled. Of seven bundled dollars promised me for my benefit, I received tbi'e hundred, (my costume costing me two hundred and ten) : Mr. Scola received nothing; and to the other artists was paid a moiety, or less, of the amounts pro mised them. This is the explanation of the delay which occurred lielore the commencement of the performance on the ?f(;ht of the first representation of '? 1 I-ombar di." As tegardi the second, although the prioes agreed upon were considerably lower, no payments whatever were made. My health will not permit me to undergo the fa'.igue of study, rehearsal, and a long and arduous performance gratuitously. ThW much far my own part. As fo* the other artists, it ia untrue, although strenu ously insisted upon, that any af them were so extremely good natures m to proffer their services frea Mesers. Seolu and Lanzoni never entertained the idea of singing witt out salary, or of separating then: ml vee from me in any manner. Messrs Laglaise ana Boncoveii, the greater part of tbe op?ra and chorus, also refused to per'orm, and Mr. l'lanel declined to fur nish tbe music of the Opera, for the inatiumentation of which he is yet unpaid. These were not the only de mands which turned upon the occasion. Die figurantes who hsve ieceived no pay fcr a long time, hud not even come to the theatre. One chief reason with us, Messrs. Editors, for occa sionally requiring the price of our labors is, that we make it a point to pay oar Cebts. We may submit for a long tim ? to be duped and in jui'M in onr material interests, but never, for a moment, shall we quietly allow ourselves to be as ? tiled in our honor and good same. The wires by which tbe very high comedy of tbe Metropolitan is se; in motion are not long enough 'or that. Be'ore terminating this communication, let ms add that, so fsr from disregarding the difficulties with which the management of the Metropolitan has occasionally bad to cortend, the artists have from tim? to tim* made concessions by wbicu tbsy have seriously injured them selves for the benefit of others. It is much to my regret, as I have before said, that these disputes are referred to the public ; but for that neither mjielf nor the other artists are responsible. As it has been done.

I bf>|? to enclose yon the returns of the Treasurer of the Metropolitan theatre of tne receipts, expenses and louses attending the production of itsliin Op?ra, and I will, as briefly as posnble, answer the ctrd of Mtdame Thorn With regard to the profits made during Mr. and Mrs. Williams' engagement, I would simply state that reference is made to their first engagement preceding the apy taracce of the Italian Optra troupe, and that all the money there made was subsequently lost by the operatic performances. In addition to the expenses enumerated by the Trea-urer, I must add $332 for cos tumes furnished by me lor Madame Thorn's use, some of which she still retains. Likewise the n ghtly expense of a carriage to convey her to ard from the theatre. No mention ia made of the serious losses arising to the management from the frequent postponements occasion ed by Madame Thorn's illness; likewise of Sig. 1-enzoni's Indisposition: on account of which "Don Giovanni" was pnt oil after heirg announced. Since the date to which the treasurer's account ia made up, "Giovanni" has been given twice; for each representation Mac an* thorn was p?id one hundred dollars. On the oseasion of Signor Lanzoni's benefit, the charge of seven hundred dollars was not made for rent alone? the rent of tfce theatre being one hundred dollars Sir night? but for all the expenses of th? theatre, inclu ng the orchestra, Ac. Up to this time Mme. Thorn was paid in full, hut I have never denied that some small atrears of salary are due to the other artists. The opera was repeated to a receipt or $160. I have never request ed the artists to sing gratuitously, nor for my profit; and it was very evident that they were afraid to run any such risk, when they declined trusting to a subscription, however " complete its moral success. " 1 agreed to pay the srtists a certain sum for the representation of " I Lombardl" on Tuesday, under the io$re*sion th*t gieat efforts would be used to secure a large home At the rise of the curtain, the receipts amounted to sixteen hundred dollar*? the disastrous commercial news, re ceived but a few hours before, preventing the attend ance of many persons. Under the circumstances. I re quested the teeesurtr to send all receipts to the artists, nothing being reserved Tor the theatre; of this sum Madame Thotn received $300? the rest was divided among artists and chorus, and I only letrned on the next day that no portion was appropriated to Mr Pianel. I think that all those engaged with me, daring more than eighteen months' management, will uphold me in the assurance that I never " dupsd" nor " injured' ' any one. I have endeavored, to the utmost of my ability, to fulfil all my promises to the public, and if on two oc casions I have been picvented from doing so, it was be cause I could no longer derive from other sources the means of paying an Italian Opera troupe more nnn?y than they draw to the treasury. In jostle to the gen tlemen composing the orchestra and choras, I sheald say that Mr. I -Oder Informed me they were ready to vo inntetr their service, provided the artists would do like wise. In justloo to Madame Bishop and H*rr Mengix, I have foyhorae to make any mention of my arrangement* with them, although they were for a time connected with the Italian Opera; but I would take occasion to say that at an times when called upon they have gratuitously sung for the benefits of all artiste, native and foreign? that Madame Bishop nev* disappointed the public, and that she famished all her own costume, and did not require a carriage to take her from the International Hotel to the theatre. Praying you will pardon the Inevitable length of thla statement, 1 remain, most reipectfvlly yours, CATHARINE N. SINCLAIR. By the Treasurer's statement it appears that Mrs. Sin clair has indulged her patrons in thirty -two opera nights since Nov. 14, at a loss of $13, 996. That Barili Thorn has received $1,406; Scola, $660; Lanionl, $810; totaj receipts of the last sixteen Opera nights, $13,003; ex peeses, (all salaries not paid,) $28, (>80? leaving an aw ful balance on the debtor'i side of $9,977.

Horrible Tragedy In l*?i?ard Street. Sl'ICIDB OP A 1)18 AFPOlWrBD LOVER I jiflt evening, nb ut seven e'clock, a Blent dhtrmlM mh of suicide occurred In the house of Cinderella Har ?ball, Ho. 51 Leonard a tree t. At thin hour, Thomas Bailey Rnuum, foraerly of Sa? Francisco, blew his brain* out with a pistol ? the causs, lefusal of a girl in this house to marry him. Ah far ?<t we hare been afcle to aaoertaio, the facts of the case arc these ? Oa the above evening, the decease.! TUited M>w Mar shall's for the purpose of Hieing thin girl, with whom ha had fallen desperately in love. H? eotreatid ber to leave the life she was followlag, and join her hand with his in marriage, but she firmly refused, fur reasoua text known to herself. The love-stricken man then be:a=ne eio-ted, and threatened, if she did ??t instant* piomUe him her hand in wedlock, he wou'd b ow his brains out, <* the same time dewing a piitol from hi? pocket. The threats M suicide so alarmed the lady o. me hoase that sbe sent across the street, to the F'fth ward sta tion house, for the police to cone and take Russum awpy. Captain' Carpenter, who was in the station house at the time, Instantly accompanied the inesoengsr, and on going op stair* saw the deceased standing- in the middle of the ioom, where the young wouian was liold iog converse with him, with a pistol in his hand. Capt. Carpenter immediately approached hit*, and In a c?nci liatory tone remarked, " Give me toe pistol and come along with me to the station bouse, where we will settle this matter after having talked it over." Russum qui etly handed him the weapon, and in a resigned meaner procreded to follow Captain Carpenter down stairs. Not thinking for a moment that the wretched man had another pistol in his possession, Captain Carpenter went down fctairs Drst, while Russurn followed cloie be hind him, apparently sati-fied to go to the station house. However, at the bottom of the stairway, and when about two or three steps from the hull landing, Russum suddenly pulled out a second pistol, and pUcing the muzzle of the wespon close up to his ear, discharged the contents or the same Into his brain. The scene that followed may be better imagined thin d?s crll>ed. The unfortunate man, all covered with bloal, instantly fell headlong to the floor, and thfre for a few moments lay convulsed in death. Aid was instantly procured from the station house, and the body was con veyed to that building, where the suislde lingered for ten minutes, gasping in the agoniea of death, and then became a lifeless torpse. The defeated never ppoke a word afUr receiving it mortal wound. The ball entering the skull .just beside ths e?r on the left side of the head, passed outward and lodged in the left eye. Ibis horrible trsgedy is tinged with romance-. The ruicide occupied a high position in the city of r^an Han chco where he formerly held the office of Reg-ster. There be left a wile and two ehdtlren, aul came on to New York with nrople means t> defray his expenses here during his stay, which was meant to have been short. While in New York he hoardtd at the Carlton house? lived rather extravagantly, and by some mischance was brought in contact with a girl boarding at Cm dei ell* Marshall's, of very captivaling and pleasing manners. With her he became deeply enamored, and so deep was hii love for hor that he offers 1 hor his hand In marriage. Ilia offtr was refused, for what masons we could not lea>n; a deep melancholy seized upon the re acted woer, and be determined on committing suicide, and thus end all his troubles. To this end ha, on the 21st of April last, purchased a vial of laudanum, and proceeded to the residence o? the captivating woman, and there told ber his Intentions if she would not agree to the propositions he had previously made. Ills arga ments in favor of marrisge were siouted at, which hid such an ? flVct upon hit mind that lie instantly, -n pre seccevf his "evil star," swallowed the entire contents of the bottle. Medical aia waj procured. and Kussun was conveyed in an inseusib'.e condition to ths Carlton House. Hers, after lingeriKg between life and death for j t?0 days, he recovered frim the deadly effects of the poison, hut seemed unite disappointed at the result o the attempt at sulci* e, and even on uts sick bed de clared that as soon ss an opportunity would offer he would commit self-destruction. His friends reasoned with him on his foulish course o conduct, but he was deaf to all their entreaties, and would listen to no alUroative save death or marriage with the woman be loved. As a determination to commit suicide was evinced, his friends and msdlcal attendants thought the most proper course to pursue would be to .end the infatuated man to the lunatic asylum on Blackwell's Island. Thither ac cordingly, on a commitment issued by Jastlce Connolly, Rufsum was conveyed, about a month ago, and here he was treated after the manner of all thoss affected with die ease of the mind. How he got from the luaatio asylum, snd arrived here in the city a few days ago, has not yet teen ascertained; but it is thought that hi. friends, thinking he had got over the ma 1 fit that poj aeesed him, removed him from that institution, not supposing that he intended to make a secind attempt at self destruction. But bdw greatly they were deceived and mistaken, the above can bear witness. His deep love for this woman had not abate!, not withstanding ber peremptory refusal of his hand, but had increased two fold with the heavy reverse, that seemed to come between bim and the object of his affec tions. His visit to the courtesan last evening, his final offer, bis refusal, his suicide, and the shocking ssene that was then enacted, close this fearf ul drama. The deceased was a man about 40 years of age, and was more than ordinarily handsome; was about six feet high, of dtrk complexion, and had black bair and mous tacbc He is. we understand, a native of Baltimore, but for many years past had been a citiwn of San Francisco, where, holding the office of Register, he commanded a oreat deal of respect, and won for himseir many friends and admirers. His untimely end will, no doabt, be .iln cerely regretted by his friends, and be a hard blow to his unfortunate widow and orphan children. The coroner will hold an inquest upon the body or the deceased to day. Mayer's Office, CHAILBR OK FALSI PRRTKNCKS. From information received yesterday at the Mayor's office, it appear* that an extensive dwindle has been in operation for the last few days, by which a considerable number of incantlons persons hare been defrauded of difltrtnt iumn of money, (the amount of which haa not us yet been ascertained,) under pretest of payment for advertisements in, and an subscription for, a new Direc tory, to be published by the firm of A. A lams Ac Co , of 413 Broadway, and called "The New York City, Brooklyn, Williamsburg, Jersey City and Hoboken Directory." The Dwindle was, as we are given to understand, first detect ed by sn employe of Trow's Directory, who, in one of his canvassing rounds, came across the following blank receipt:? 160 Broadway, June 1, 1113.

Since then Keely has made inqui ry at the place 413 Broadway, and has been Informed that there is no such firm or petson of the name of Adams at said place, Charles A. Du Moulin, Andrew O'Toole, Maurice llealy, and ceveral others, allege that they had been engaged by two persons, Jobn Mchellar and Joseph D. Carson, and by virtue of their employment, collected money from different parties, and paid the same over to McKellar and Carson, who pretended that tbey were carrying on business for A.

McKellar says that the whole affair <* a falsehood ; bat Carson says that he was merely In the employ of the former, at a salary of *1 60 per day, and 20 per cant on any money taken in.
