At Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the 13th ulu, a mot curious and extraordinary phenomenon was seen.

The in iment he read the letter he pr ceeded to Aldndge's house. It was at a very carlv hour in the morning He found him up, and two gentlemen with him He desired those gentle, en to atttiwl to what passed He produced the letter, and st ted Itsconunts, and asked Mr lldndge wlether he had authoriacl i ord to write that letter Aldndge said he had done no such thing some further conversation took place, upon which Aldndge said he had not the slightest sus I lcion of the pr lsecutor The prosecutor being Inclined to doubt whether Aldndge had stated the truth, (ressed the m.ittir whh indignation, and at last Al dndge said Perhaps the best way to please you will be to make an affidavit ol the truth of what I state He added I employed Mr George hord to endeavour to find out who had forged my name, but no susj iclon lighted on you ne of the gentlemen present said 1 1 the prosecutor, I think alter what Aldndge has said you ought nut anv longer to Insist that he takes any part in these proceedings." The prosecutor was appeased he juittcd Aldndge house, and I ro rerded as soon as he ce uld to his own solicitor.

He sent fir Udndge, and then, in the tresenceot sir fieynolds, Aldndge confessed that he had employed the defendant rord, and that in voint ot lact tbe letter was arranged between them. The ir demanded an investigation, and he went immediately io the bankers upon whom it was said the check had been draan He lequesteil to know from them the particulars. which he would to day give in evidence He obtained some account of bank notes which it was said had been given for tltc eheik He endeavoured to trace them to the Bank of ngland, fer the urposeot vindicating himself It appeared afterwards, uism in juirv, that Mr Aldndge had declared that he would make an affidavit of the forgery hether he had done so or not was not known to the prosecutor, but it had been ascertained that the check had been passed to his credit again.

The bankers had paid it, and he had acquiesced in that payment. He (sir James Scarlett) thought he should be able to satisfy the jury that the cheik was in the hand, wnting Mr Aldndge himself Mr illiam hord, the prosecutor, state I that he was not related to the defendant, Sir George rord, who was formerly his solicitor, but they had had some differences. The defendant Aldndge ke a gaming house in st, James's, square, and with him he had also had some differences. On the morning of the Jith of January, 18JI, at a very early hour (isr rather dunng the night ol the Jtth), he rectlved a letter, which he knew to be in tte handwntmg of Mr George hord I The letter, which was read by sir James car lett in his opening, and which we have given above, wis heTe put in and read Upon receiving that let. ter he instantly went to Aldndge's house, and found there Aldndge, with two other gentlemen, named M'Cabe and strutch He stated that he had received tuch a letter from Mr lord, and read it in the presence of those gentlemen.

He then asked Mr. Aldndge for an explanation, and to throw some light on the subject, when Aldndge solemnly called God to witness that he had not given instructions to Mr lord to write that letter Witness being much excited, said he did not believe it. Aldridge then appealed to hit leelings, and said the least he could do was to suspend his judgment until he had seen Mr hord He also said he had suspected another person of the forgery, and that he had given the check into Mr. Ford's hands to make inquines about it.

THE XIWG JADIS. Mr.

Cl Rwood applied that the trial of this ca, which stool second on to day's paper, might be postponed, on the ground that the prosecutor, Mr Carmichael Smyth, who waa a matena witness, waa ill, and unable to attend and give evidence. The solicitor Gexeral, for the defendant, opposed the application. The indictment, he said, wa foe a supposed libel, contained in a letter wntten in tbe year 1834. The prosecutor had several times, between that year and the rime when the present indictment was found, preferred bill of Indictment in respect of that letter, and tbey bad all been thrown out br tbe grand juries, borne time ago, when tbe rase stood In the paper for trial, handbills were circulated for the purpose of prejudicing the mind of the jury who were to try the case, and the Lord Chief Jasrce on that account thought It nght to postpone the trial Tbe prosecutor might now, if he thought p'oprr, withdraw the record but be (tbe Solicitor General) hoped that hi Lordship would not think that the apphcadotx, in lu present form, ought to be ac. ceded to.

Mr. Justice Pattesov thought that the proper couth would be for tbe prosecutor to withdraw the recoed, and then, if there were any circumstances that would entitle him to ask of the Court to allow the ease to be pot forward in the paper, he might make an application for thu purpose.

I advanced to the gate, which I had jjrrvtouaiy I icked, ariel be said he had a message to give me aoow purchase of some pictures. I then opened the gate, and be and another man seired me on both side by the arms.

I waa very much surprised, and waa quit at a loss to cooravw wait was and what it could mean. 1 aaked under what autho nty they acted. One of them said "irairrastecgnewftriB. I said (not knowing who they were, or what wa the object of their assault) that I would not go with them, and I aakecl hat authonty they had for acting aa they did. One of mem drew out a paper, which be said waa their authority.

nn he produced the paper, I requeued to be rrmittedtoread tt. Near my house there ws a gas lamp, and I provcsect should go to that lamp and read if. I read it tinder the gaa Ump, they holding my arm. When I had read the paper I was exceedingly surprised, and I refused to go They then endeavoured to force away.

Tbe watchman came, and I gave the men in charge, and the watchman took as into the bouseof a constable. One of the men bad aha; ta bis hand, wuh several implements to secure me. I resuteo, jid the man with the bag felL AVben w. got to th. eon tav ble's the bag was searched; it contained a stralwwaistco vid other things for confining insane persons.

On Ul follow. day I went to the pohce office, where the two "en who had assaulted me appeared to the charge I had Pred. 1 had at this time in my house two bill of change ml a valuable collection of pictures, worth tyfll and other property to a considerable amount. CnWexarained by bir Jame JscatLTT. Tlje the bill was a gentleman named George Monro.

I nave received no money for tbera. They ar over due now. I bad some of lord Foley' biB subsequently. I believe the ob icct of the defendant wa to obtain poeaeswio of my property. I am th youngest living child of my father by hia hrse wife.

I do not acknowledge my brothers now. On th nday after the hrst attempt to seise I believe mr brother sent other men to take eioo of my Pwrson.

I did not attend to it myself, but employed an agent hen I went to Lloyd's I went dressed a. I ugbt lob wh.n among gentlemen. I have never shated my eyebrows. but I cut them befor 1 came into court. I used to it my beard grow very long, but I shaved before I came into court.

I used to wear tbe same sort of shoe a I hav on now: they are, perhaps rather peculiar, but they are very eaT and comfortable. I lived without a aervant, and I mnat admUj my houewa not wefl kept aa I ould wib. I used to brush my own boots and shoe. My house wa mall, and I pre 'erred living by myself. I used generally to dine at an eating house near AVesmunster brldge.

Before 1 wrote to him to inform htm It was my intention to indict him, 1 had had no correspondence with him of an angry naturr, nor bad I written to him for years. I have disposed of all my picture in different wys, except one by Cotregto, Utelr imported into thla Il le called the fauwn the Cross. It ia of extreme value, and, I may say, almost of matchles perfection. It not ia my hands now, bnt In the hands of an attorney, who ha got a Den npon it, I exchanged the other picture teiaeaptlly foe bills, which eventually I expect will pros a good speculation. I had two bills for about on Lord Mirling, against whom I have proceeded outlawry, bar I think I shall uiti mately be paid, a I beHeVe be ha ample mean.
