An attempt was made by the New York delegation to insert an arti cle compelling the new party to adopt the nomination for the Presidency of any antl slavery man who might be brought forward by either of the old parties.

Justice l'earcy deterutHed, as far as was In his powsr, to brlrg the offenders to justice, and accordingly instituted auch inquiriss iane the case that evidence was obtained snffioient to Issue or won ant for the arrest of all concerned in the transec tion. The case was placed in the banda of officers Roil and Mf.oie, of the Second District Police Court, who de parted for Buffalo on Monday ltct. for the purpose of arresting I?avenworth, who, it was believed, was lying in a very daogtious condition in the neighborhood of Niagara On arriving at Huffslo on Tueeday, they pro ceeded to the re ider cs of Dr. Hamilton, whom they sue pected wae in attendance upon the occasion; but they found that he was not at home, and had not been f?r two weeks previous to*their visit. They thin endeavored to obtain soma Information from the servant girl as to the Doctor's whereabouts; but no satisfactory answers could be had, so they de parted for xslagara Falls, with the hope of being more ruceestful in their mission. Here they luckily came across the hackman who drove one of the parties to the duelling ground. From him they obtained some valu ab e information respecting the personal appearance of tLose engtged Is the duel, whose real names were not known to the authorities, all of the parties, with the ex ception or the principals, having gone nnder assumed names during tbe performance of the drama. From in formation received at N sgara, the officers went to a se cluued spot in the woods, about two tnitsa back from the Fa'la, on the American side of the river, where Leavan worth waa found, in n very dangerous condition, attend ed by his mother, brother and a physician. On informing the wounds:) man of the nature of their burners, tbe doctor declared that it would bo Highly dangerous to remove him, sb there was every proba bility of mortiffcation setting In. The matter was then arranged in this wise:? Leavenwoitb wrote a letter to a friend of his in New York, telling him that he had been arrested, and as h# waa unable, from the nature of his wounds, to travel, a grvtt favor would be conferred by his beoom ng the bondsman of tbe prisoner for his appearance to answer the charge when called upon to do so The officer (Ross) conveyed the note tn this friend of I/iaveuworth, wnile officer Moore kept guard behind. On Thursday last this friend of Leavenworth (whose name Justice Pearcy deems proper to withhold for the present) re ceived tbe note end immediately proceeded before tbe magistrate and entered iato ball to the amount of <6,000 for the eppeersnce of Leavenworth Yssteiday officer Ross proceeded back to Niagara for the purpose, if poesible, of effectiog the arrest of one of the attending physicians, whose pretended name is Grimes, who Is supposed to b? in the neighborhood of the falls. For tho past few days Captain Walling, of the Eighteenth waid police, and Lieut Dunn, of the Twen t:eth ward, have been on the track of one of the Beconda, srnoee name appeared in print ae Pendleton fan as sumed name), but were frustrated in their efforts to capture him by a paragraph that appeared in yester day 'a 1rihunt from a correspondent, announcing the arrest of Leavenworth, which, aa a matter of course, alarmed tbe bird, who ere now is probably several hun dred miles away from New York, or in some Stats where dwelling is recognised as a lawful means of set tliog dispute*. The laws of this State are vtry severe In regard to duelling, and should deter all from exercising their skill with firearms against each other. Page 089, second voluire of the Revised Statutes, declares that those en gaged in duelling within thts State, where death shall not occur, shall, upon oonviction, be imprisoned for a term not exceeding ten years, while the mere Sending of a challenge is punishable to the extent at seven years imprisonment in tbe State prism tebexe death shall occur, the sixth section, part fourth of the lecond volume of the Revised Statutes, page 848, reads as follows:? Ever; inhabitant or resident oi this State who shall, by previous appciatment or engagement, fight a duel without the Jurisdiction of thin State, or in ao doing shall inflict a wound upon hi* antagonist, or any otber person, whereof the person thns injured shall die within this State, and ever* eeeoad engaged ia snoh dnel, shall be deemed entity ith' " " of murder within th*e State, and may be indicted, tried and oonvleted in tbeconnty where snoh death (hall happen. Thus It will be seen that should tbe authorises press Tor a conviction in tbe case of those engaged in the late duel, they will pay dearly for their conduct. There la no doubt but the seconds and physicians will bs soon ar rested snd bold to answer. As for Mr. Breckenbridge, Kentucky gusrds him from the penalty that be other wise might he compelled to endure. Mayor** Office. FRAUDS UPON EMIGRANTS. A respectable looking man, named WUllam Cooler, ap peared jeitiriaj morning before Justioe Osborne, and lodged a complaint agalnat a person calling ghimtelf William Wilson, who he ehargee with having inten tionally dsfrau led him, by selling him a ticket for a wrong route. Mr. Cooper stales that he resides at 447 Myrtle avenue, In the city of Brooklyn, and that he ar rived in this city somewhere abont the 12th iastant, on board the ship William Kelson. When the ship bad anchored in the stream, part of his fellowp&a eergtrs, himself among the number, ware compelled by the captain of 'he ship to board a atsamer which was alongside the William Nelson, to be conveyed to the city, and wbf e on board tickets for their inland passage wers off* red tbcm by some uaknown parties. Cooper told tbtm that he wished to go to Cincinnati, but that he would not travel by any other route than by the Hew York and Erie Railroad The persons selling thejticket* tbrn in ormed him that tbey could farnish him with a ticket for that line, whereupon Cooper purchased a tick et and paid $9 GS on account or <36, which is the amount to be paid for four full passengers. Mr. Coop er then made arrangements for his departure, but before leaving, he discovered that he had been itspo-ed upon and that his ticket was not for the New York and Erie Railroad but for the People's Une. Wilton has refused either to return Cooper his money or burgage Justice Osborne Issued a warrant (or the arrest of Wilson, which has been execute), and the ac cused held to ball In the sum of <500. SINGULARLY ROMANTIC CASE IN MERCER SPRUIT. An aged gentleman, of very respectable appearanoe. accompanied by a friend, appeared yesterday at the Mayor's office, oemplaining that a young girl of bad character had induced bis son, an Innocent youth, and estranged him from the path of virtue. The eon is a thorough specimen of Young America, both in breechee, collar and coat, and though as yet not more than sixteen or seventeen years of age, has already, it appears, began to play the rake, and is wbat is vulgarly termed "the devil among the ladles." The story Is somewhat roman tic end interesting, and is substantially as follows:?A certain young lady, a perfect Venus In form and feature, living at a certain number in Mercer street, wae, it irems, unfortunate enough to captivate the affections of the a'oretaid young innocent, who. since the first day he beheld her, has been in the ha >tt of visiting her house end paying bis addresses to bar, appropriating every week 930 for her maintenance By some aca'dent the guilty pair were discovered and exposed by the fa ther. who. after the usual amount of scolding anl threats, succeeded in exacting from his son a promise never te see his mistress avain, or be a naughty boy any more. Things went on vsry well for a short time, until ibe tear of parental authority faded from tne son's mind, and bis old love began to burn with renewed vigor, wben by dmtof repeated threat* and entreaties, Young America prevailed upon hie mlstrsee to meet him again It Is needless to say that the attachment grew as strong and the meetings as frequent as ever. Ibe father again discovered them a abort time a*o, and. as a last resort, proceeded to tbe Mayor's ofllcs, snd d* sired that the girl should be sent to BHckwoll's Island, cr soma other p ace beyond tbe reach of bis son. Justice Osboms examined closely into tbe earn, and advised both parties as to the proper course to be punned. Tbe young man, In exten uation of bis naughty conduct, stated that the second In'lmsey betwren them was unavoidable on his part; that he was waylaid by the girl ana absolutely compell ed to fol.ow her. The young gtrl, who was present, dar ing be> n requested by Captain Turnbull to accompany him to tbe court, told, on the other bond, a very differ ent stry. and said that the fault woe all on the other side: that sbe had reoeived frequent note* from the son, in wcich he mads all sorts of threats of self destruction, Ac., and that flna'ly. through downright fear of the con sequence* if she did not accede to hie wishes, bad been induced to meet tbe boy again. Wnen confronted by hie mistress, tbe young libertine could not deny her state ment bnt acknowledged that she spoke 'be truth. Jus tlce Osborne would not consent to eend tbe girl to ths Island, as, In bl? opinion, tbe bey was more to blame than the girl. He made ner pi amis-, how-rer. never to see the son again, or ndiptt him Into ber house The case was then dismisses, end toe sev?rel persons con cerned departed to their respective homes Brooklyn Police Court.

Industrial School roa German Girls.?Thli school 1* at No. 14 avenue C, near Second street, and Is intended for the street children of the German quarter of our city ? for those who from Ignorance of our language, poverty of parents, or gross indifference to its necessity, arc un willing or unable to attend the public schools. It has been open without interruption through two winters and one Hurnwer, and ao far has been very successful. About 150 cbilJren receive instruction In it every dsy except Saturday and Sunday. A good dinner is also provided for tbem, with Meat ttree times a weak, which a certain number of the older glrla assist the matron in preparing. Tbej are taught to do general housework, to wash and iron such coarse articles as are used in the school, and to keep the bouse In order. The matron bathes each child once a weok, and in the afternoon they are taught to sew upon piain garments, whiob are given to them as they may require them Tbe Infant school Is under the eare of a principal teacher. Miss Kellogg, who devotee ker whole t'.ms to forty ilttTe girls, from six to too years old, teaching them through pictures until they can understand English. The school for older glrla numbers 82, from 8 to 15 yaara of age, under the chargeot the principal, Miss Used, as sisted by the volunteer teachers. The ordtr, regularity and lelf-control which exist In this sihool, are very re markable, and spring from Miss Heed's decided, but quiet influence, without tho use ef punishment or re ward. Tbe number of ladies who have taught through tbe winter, has been sixty a week, dividing the'r at tendance between the m Truing and afternoon. The li brary attached to the school contains two hundred vo lumes, donations from putdishers and friends, and about twenty five children take out hooks. These are re turned with regularity, and It is considered a distinction to have them. Ths receipts daring the past year amounted to $2,330 50, and the expenses to <1,087 47, leaving a balance of $640. The children, in addition to the instruction they receive, are often eent to tbe country, and into familiee, as we eee from the report, according to which 42 were ao disposed of. within the Iset twelve months. Tbs number of dinners givsn daring the fame per'od was 10,352, the cost of provisions 550, and tbe number of garments and shoei distributed since October, 227.

Col. Henry Raymond was In the chair. A committee from the Nsw York Volunteers waited upon the corps to notify th intention of that company to parade with ths Veteran on the occasion, under command ot Capt. K. U Harper It was 'ben arranged that the corps ebould assemble in fell uniform, at headquarters, and thence marsh down Broadway to Fulton ferry, across to Brooklyn, and thence to the resting place of tbe mortal remains of tho revolutionary martyrs, in Jso*son street, Brooklyn, where, around tbe present dilapidated monument, ad dressee will be delivered by several of the invited guests. Bevtral matters of business were then transacted, and tbe meeting adjourned. Thx CsNsra Marshals.?-A special of the Owns Marshals, E. W. Morgsns chairman, was held at the Broadway House last evening, for the purpose of making application to the Common Connoll for an ex tension of time in the performance of their duties. The time alloted to these offlclsls is one month, which they complain Is too short, as it will take at least sixty davs, in their opinion, to perform the job properly. They also complained that their remuneration is not sufficient for the lsbor performed, as they have to work about sixteen hours a day on tho average, which, at $2 per diem, was but rather ; oor pay. Altogether the Census Marshals are in a very unsatisfied state of mind.

Dr. Jones was se verely, though It Is to ho hoped not dangerouslv, injur ed. This practice, by tho way, of cartman throwing hosts, bales and packages of goods on the sidewalk, without givii g timely warning, cannot be too severely reprobated. Run Ovee and Killed.?
