Mr. Bandars pamphlet CO that tub act of this celebrated persoa&ge, has just appeared, and will tTobably be thought thi last, . which this singular controversy can aver require. It b wriUw w a style M iranKnest, spi - rit Mid Intelligence, which U likely to command - the attention of lu readers ia an eminent degree. The obicct of tbe anther U to establish three principal points t first, that Mia M'Avoy b aot . blind t secondly, that deceptive art hare been oaed in the exhibitions of her wonderful powtrs ; and thirdly, that other persons, blinded by the same processes used in her cue, bar been in that etata able to perform the same experiment If thee propositions are desaouitrated, and' we , apprehend that ia the opinion of most penont they will be thought at least rry probable, the wnols mystery ol the miracle is at ooce tuuoiaea. We could present a number of extracts from the pamphlet, which would serve to confirm this position, aad would greatly entertain our readers, bat perhaps the following will ha thought , ittukaenl " M The following statement contains the sub - . stance of what occurred, though it may pot b comet ia point of order. Mm M'Avoy was , seated upon a chair, in the presence of nearly thirty persons ; all standing, with tne exception of about half a dosso. Wheal entered, she was exhibiting' with her eyes uncovered; she toM colours by rubbing her fingers upon the ob - ' JecU presented. Approaching close, I knelt at the siiU of her chair, aad watched with great attention the pupil of her eye, which could not . be accurately observed by a person standing. I saw her several timet depress it, till she caught a glimpses the objects; sooo after this, gold beaters' skin was applied. 1 remained at her side, and looking in at the corner of her eye, to which part the covering had not closely adhered, distinctly perceived a slight elevation of the eyelid : an elevation sufficient to admit the edge of a dull knife. In the course of the perform - . vace, it sometimes increased, and sometimes diminished: vet it was never perceptible to per sons standing; immediately before her. I was then so convinced she nsed her eyes, as I nsed mine, that on the impulse of conviction, I decja - ' red the lady could see. Upon this declaration, Dr. Jardioe called me out of the room, aad stated that it would be better that the expert meats previously agreed upon between himself . - and others, should be tried witbout any inter - . ruptioa. To this I assented, observing, at the same time, that I was sura she could see, and : that the goggles were not satisfactory blinds. In coosequeavoe of Dr. Jardina's differing in opinion, I requested they might be fixed upon myself; they were seat for, brought into the kitchen, and applied by Dr. Jardine, Mr. Bywater, and Mr.. Turmeau, with as much care as possible ; - the moment a watch was presented, I told the hoar. The goggles were then taken off, and ... put oa a second time, with still greater care. A small watch was then produced, and I observ - . ad, " This winds up on the fates, but I cannot tell you immediately what the hour how aver, ia a short time I saoceeded. Finding I ' could still see, the experiment was again tried, the goggles ware then fixed in a very tight and . oppressive manner, so mnch so, that I could not breathe through my nostrils, a thine; indispensable to Miss M'Avoy. I (hen declared the pov - erwai gone, or ia other words, that I was com . pletely blindfolded." "At the close of the experiments, another person present expressed an opinion that Afus , M'Avoy could see; uwn which Dr. Ren wick proposed that the goldbeater's skin aad the adhesive plaster should be applied to that person's yet, wnicii was assented to, and uncommon pains were taken by Dr. K. in plartng them, so as to prevent all possibility of seeing. When fixing them, Dr. R. said, " Now close your eye inn," to wtucnan answer was returned ey one, "You were act so particular with Mist - M'Avoy." However, the request was compli d with, aad when the bandages were properly ' placed, a watch was presented, and the hour Was immediately pronounced ; a glove was givet .and ibe colour was told ; a letter was produced, Which was read with great facility, although the writing was very small." TO TBI IDtTOK. Sir The case of Abraham Thornton, who - nat been appealed of the death of the late un . turtuuate Mary Asbford by the brother and heir - at law of the deceased, excites great Merest, and will, na doubt, elicit much useful information of the principles of the common law upon this antiquated though not obsolete part of it. Amongst the variety ol arguments mentioned ia the public papers to have been adduced on be half of the appellant, against the allowance of Ui" defendant's plea of wager of battle, I do aot observe the following, which seems to be worthy of attention : "It b i good countcrplea of battel that the defendant hath been indicted for the same fact; when if appeal be brought the defendant shall aot wage battel." Vide Jacob's Law Dictionary, 4to. 1809, Title "Battel." How this authority, which' to me appears respectable, has escaped the observation of the , appellant's legal advisers, aad of the various expositors of the law upon the subject, I cannot resolve. Your insertion of the above will oblige, years, REFLECTOR. JfEIV - rOHK EVKJfUtQ PuST. THURSDAY, JANUARY it. Congrttt. The following is the resolution in troduced by Mr. Hopkinsoa into the House of Representatives on Monday last - M Resolved, that the committee on the judiciary be instructed to enquire what fees have been charged and received by the district attorney of J the southern Oistnct of tue state of New - Tori, in wecatious broucht by him against retailers of . its, for vending them without license ; and, what Cses have been received and charged t same cases, b the other officers of the . . - d States, In the courts of the United States, e said southern district of the state of New - :, and that the said committee have power d for persons aad papers." the practice, dishonorable to the officers sited to, and oppressive ana injurious to many dividuals in this city, hare prevailed here, & we have too much reason to believe they have. We cannot express sufficiently our thanks to the honorable member from Pennsylvania for step - ping forth to expose them ; nor at the same time avoid expressing onr wonder and disappointment at not finding the New - York members at least ready to second him. From facts that have come to onr knowledge, and from more that we have heard of, we expect thit if the troth is brought to light, a seeling of indignation and astonishment will ba excited throughout the community. . Lam Since the editor of the National Advo cate insists upon my expressing my opinion respecting his prosecution and conviction, be shall bare it. It was not my wish or intention to press apoo bim ia his mitfortuac, but this will not Con tent him. . He is very petulant because I merely undertook to correct an error of the reporter for the Daily Advertiser, in mis - sUting the precise point of law co which he was .convicted ; but very ' prudently abstains from e vea an attempt to rhew wbartia I wax wrong. I aa "Wed the ride of dok bim any iojiutfc ia via particular, tinea 1 am ready to take ha own account of the affair iabis own paper, and let him u he can, new wherein it differs from that g)vea by me. 1 ven tured to my tha( the jury did aot convict him of publishing the letter, bat expressly of sWafctng iiMin. Whilnvs Mr. Noah himself.' In ba j . paper of Jan. 14 is the following : st Rnr I.. Birch, nor clerk, a man of on - im pet enable character aad veracity, declared, en ocuh, before the grand Jury, that ktfmirt the Utter that It was orx when he found it ; vet the mod jury declared that we tnfcreepieo, The seat evseWc was given on the trial. Ths district attorney declared, and the court was a - ware, that no evidenca was produced that we opened or tnitrtepted the letter j yet the jury returned in their verdict that wa did open, inter cept, aad publuh it." Now, if I can read English, here is the precise point stated as the foundation of the vtrdict, th&t I stated t namely, that the jury found that Mr Noah did intertept and pen the letter in ques tion? And it is also admitted in his paper of the L5th that the mayor did charge ths jury as I sta ted he did, that unless they were satisfied that Noah brk open the letter, thry should not find him guiffy of the mitdemeantr ehmrged in the in dictment ; but they did find him gvtly, and thereby twelve men on their oaths declared they were satisfied that he had commXled ths base act of breakihg open the letter, with which ha to accused. And if they believed the presumptive eridenoe afforded by a combination of circum stances which could not lie, rather than the unsupported oath of any witness whatever, who will deny their right to do so ? Who will under take to say what ought or ought not to satisfy the minds of a jury ? Who will undertake to say they were wrong in believing that the man who would pvbluk a letter of his political adversary, and openly boast that he did so upon the profligate principle, that, in his mind, all teal fair in politic, would not scruple upon the same prin ciple to brea! open a letter ; and that be did break it open, or, what comes to the same thing, was directly or indirectly concerned ia it ? Mr. Noah told us at first that there was to be a motion in arrest of judgment ; but as this could only prevail, on the supposition that it was no misdemeanor to break open a seal, I suspect, whatever anight ba Mr. Noah's ideas of law or morality, od this score, his counsel knew better than, to venture upon such ground. He then told us that the motion was to be one for a new trial; and one, I understand, has accordingly been ar gued on two objections, first that the verdict was without evidence I second that the mayor mis - di rected the Jury io point of law, in this, that after he charged them that to publish a tetter was no misdemeanor but that to break a ttal was, he added, that they, after all, were the sole judges as in all criminal cases, of law as well as fact This b the ground principally relied on, and can dor compels me to say I think the objection well taken. But the court postponed their decision to the next term, on a doubt that occurred whe ther the court of sessiooi bad authority to grant a new trial. No idle doubt certainly, since the supreme court has already decid ed that the court of sessions, as aa inferior court, bad no such au thority : aay, his honor the mayor was then on the bench and. the very judge who delivered this opinion himself, which is to be found in the first volume of Johnson's Cases : The People against Tbe Justices of ths 8eseions of the county of Chenango." Two points were determined.Jb - t, That the Sessions is a court of inferior jurisdiction. Second, That do such court possesses the power of granting new trials. Tbe statute since passed, extending the jurisdiction, gives no new powers. Mr. Noah, in talking of the wound that bai been inflicted on the liberty of the press on this occasion, talks at rundem and in attempting the pathetic falls into the ridiculous. Mtchanie'HaU On Tuesday evening I was among the number of spectators who attended the exhibitions of Mr. tanislas, and feel myself compelled in justice to my, that tbe high raised expectations of all who were present were amply gratified, .tffler treating us with a number of curious and instructive experiments in electrici ty by means of a complete and powerful appara tus, he proceeded to exhibit instances of slight of hand, which certainly exceeded what has ever been witnessed here. Amons other feats the following was exhibited. Seven watches, borrowed of gentlemen pre sent, were laid upon a table face upward;, a dish with three eggs were placed on the same table ; a card was then drawn from a pack by one of the company, unseen by the performer, and in order to know it again, a piece was tore out and preserved by the person who drew it; tbe card was then handed back, and the name of it being declared aloud, Mr. 5tanilas broke one of the eggs in the presence of the company, out of which be took the identical card with the fragment mis sing; then taking the fragment from the gentlemen who held it, and giving it a toss towards the table, he desired a lady to name any one of the seven watches and the fragment should be found inclosed in the case ; the one that was pointed out, beings handed to the owner of it and opened, the piece of card was found inclosed. Young gentlemen who witness these deceptive exhibitions, may learn from them this important lesson, for their future lives, vis. never to engage cards, or aa pastimes of chance or dexterity, where any thinrb hazarded, with a man of equivocal character. There is no possible se curity but in the honor of your companions. The legislature of Tennessee have passed an act, imposing a penalty of f 50,000 on the esta blishment of any branch of the Bank of the Uni ted States, in that state. THE ALBINESS.

The circumstances attending were truly distressing : it appears that the family bad retired to rest, and the progress ol the names was so rapid, and so far advanced, when discovered, that Mr. Kibbey, his wife, and their children, had only time to make their es cape, with no other than their night garments on The seventy of the weather was such, ha their nearly naked situation, that Mr. K's feet were so badly frozen it was expected he must suffer amputation.

Tbe amendments of the senate to the bill fixing the compensation of the senators, representa tives, and delegates in the congress of the United States, were read and agreed to. The amendments of the senate to the bill for the relief of Winslow and Henry Lewis, were read and agreed to. MILITARY APPOINTMENTS. On motion of Mr. Lowndes, the house having resolved itelf into a committee of tbe whole on the bill making appropriations for the support of the military establishment for IBIB : tbe several appropriations passed without opposition, except one which provides for the appropriation ol 35,000 dollars to compensate such brevet officers as may be placed in service in such situations as to entitle them to pay according to their brevet rank. This provision Mr. Lowndes moved to strike out of the bill. Whereupon a debate arose on the expediency of continuing this allowance. The debate was of so considerable length, that even a brief sketch of it would exceed our limits. It is therefore reserved for a future day, when it shall be sketched off. Those who supported the motion to strike out this .section, were Messrs. Lowndes, Clay, Sergeant, Reed, of Md. ; and those who opposed it were Messrs. Mercer, Harrison, Ogle, Baldwin, and Smyth. Mr. Culbreth and Mr. Taylor al so expressed their views of iu Tbe motion was founded on tbe absence of any necessity for employing brevet officers in situ ations, enhuinc them to pay beyond that attach ed to their lineal rank, and was supported on that and other grounds. It was opposed on the ground that, as the law bow authorises the employment, and extra pay of such officers when commanding separate posts, ic it contains a compact which the government ought not to annul, between it and tbe officers : and also on the ground, that, whilst the law exists, the appropriations ought to be made accordingly. The motion to strike out this clause prevailed by a large majority. The remainder of the bill having been gone through, the bill was reported to the house, and was ordered to be engrossed.

It is in a great measure, a preventive to the perpetration of vice, as well as a promoter of health and long lile, by doiug away, (in a grout degree.) the use of ardent liquors. Besides which, it tends to the encouragement of agricul ture; for it promotes the means of creatio; the consumption of a much larger quantity of grain. and opens a new source of enterprise for our tanners, in tne cultivation of hops a plant which is indigenous to this country, and which has of late years been cultivated in large quantities in Massachusetts, and is now begmniug to be cultivated with great success in this state. There has been, for some years past, a meri torious competition existing among the brewers, particularly of this city, in attempting to produce an article that would take best with the public, and be equal, if not superior, (if possible) to tbe malt liquor produced in England. This laudable, (and advantageous competition to the public) commenced with the celebrated " Alba oy ale," brewed by a Mr. Le Breton, some years ago; lor wbicn, he certainly deserved much cre dit, and realised, (very justly) a handsome profit Having a few days since come to town on mat ten of business in. my own profession, 1 took tome pains to nod tbe best malt liquor in New York, and I am obliged by candor to say, that I do not believe any country capable of producing an article superior to the malt liquor now on draught at the bank Coffee - house ; which, 1 was iiiiorBMU, was manufactured by the same Mr Le Breton, who is now a resident in . this city, ana is peroaps the most scientific practical brew er in the United States; and, a man who cer tainly merits not enly the encourarement of its innauiiania, out mat 01 the public at large. jansctic A Country Brewer.
