With regard to your dresses, and viucr waaruif approi, uwse image, I presume, are not to be execaled by yourself, bat by such persons are termed millinen and drew makers and when once they hare procured a pattern, little more is required. But pnt this argument aside, and suppose the ftrst lady of Uie land was on the eve of marriage, the milliners mast wait for the lady, and not the lady lor the milliners. Aay other weighty concerns, I am at a lorn to know what they can be. .' However, I must now turn on a more doleful . euHect: Mr. Crumbleholm is so dreadfully ill. that she may now, from the turn of her com - ' plaint, lire to see through a week or two. or but Uie any day. The treat intimacy which sub sisted between her and my uncle calls juponue to show every Irroprieiy of oeeduct, and every respect i due toe valuable a woosaa. It hat bee desired bjAIrt.

' Tbe bargain for the purchase nf the estate had been ooocludod, bat the contract for the Warruge bad never been carried into effect, lie took it for granted Mis Orford returned an answer to this letter. The aext letter was dated tbe Eta of May, and began - "My dearest lovV (the lover had rot a lit . lie warmer ia bis expressions)" I this awning received your auecuonate letter. I have now given you two invitations, neither of which yon have accepted, either from the remarks of the world, or tome other thing. I think it right to say, mat owing u a circumstance, Mrs. Clarke will not be here at the time appointed: and! think it right also to say , that I am getting pretty well, and can ride, ami can get about a little ; but, however, I will leave it to vour own iudr - Bteat and discretion whether you will yet com or not. My mother Kid me say, that she will be . - very happy to see you and Mrs. Orford here, ant of these days you may please to atiDoiot t if von - will come, I shall certainly tay the earlier the day the better." ; - - The letter concluded with saying that he fas affectionately her's. , 1 ' la consequence of this invitation, Mim and Mt$. urkMti went to htrkland - ilall, where Uty were received at before, aod treated with e7ery posiible degree of kinducss. She was received ' tf the defendant at hi intended wife, and by his moUer as her future deughter - M - b v. They remained there till the 6th May, everything being then cootidereit as approaching rapidly to the coatummatioa that had been looked Jo for tome time. Mr. Orford, the brother, had been informed of the djcu meats having been submitted to the defendant's solicitor, and that gentleman with the adection of a brother, expressed . his readiness to concur in any act that could gwe immediate possession of tbe property to which ' his titter was entitled. Mist Orford and her mo ther reached Liverpool about the Sttth Jtfay, and the next letter they received was dated tbe lit 1 of June, and wu at follows : " My dear Mary Ton will, I have no doubt, . think me very loo ia writing to you ; but believe mo, I have been much engaged. . The un fortunate bntiuem existing between my uecle.

Would the jury believe that this was the last , letter this ardent lover had ever written to the olijectof hit affections Would it be credited, . that he bal immediately afterwards altogether . withdrawn himself from the family ( that he had closed his correspondence with this letter, and had never subsequently wntteo a single line, or ever been seeia by the lady or her friends .' He eaw the jury express their astonishment. Of . what materials could such a man as the defend ant, have been moulded ? . How could he, so late at tbe tSth of May, have stated to this lady, tnat she was the dearest object of his affections, and the mistrers of Kirkland - Iiall, and then have closed his correepoodence by that cold, unfeeling and unmannerly ep Ue he had just read. .It was naturil to suppose, that the diHress of the ramily would be excessive. . The lady knew not what had become of the man who bad professed himself her lover: the bad written a letter to bim wUch he called upon bit learned friend to produre.

James Croiiper. of Liverpool. one of Uie trus under the will of Jlfiss OHord't father, deposed to the mat resuectabditv of the family. gave a very high character oi the lady he ever considered her as exemplary in a very degree. Both the plaintiff and tho family associated with the flftf people of Liverpool. lcaac Blackburn, Esq. brother to the member tbe county, tore tbe moat explicit testimony the character of the plaintiff and her family. With regard to the plaintiff; he had alwayt considered bor at the most artless girl th it he had teen in hit hie. fie described her as a very beautiful woman, and a woman of good sonse discretion. Her conduct throughout life he believed to be uniformly correct, Mr. Scarlett addressed (he jury, on behalf of aeleno.au l, at considerable length. Mr. Juitice Bayley summed up the evidence. The jury retired, and returning into court in about a quarter of an hour, pronounced their verdict i or we piaiotur. Uumagct, term tViou poundi. j This trial had been the subject of general con versation throughout the county of Lancaster for several monint past, and persons of all ranks ap peared to be interested in the result. We do not remember any former occasion when the public curiosity was more excited. It may, therefore, be imagined what an immense concourse ol auditors would be presume for admitUmo Crowds were collected at every avenue, and the were scarcely thrown open, than the court. spacious at it is, aud capable of containing t.OOD parsons, was instantly lined. 1 be ladies were conspicuous in all pails of the court, having bra - every aanger lo oDiain admittance. The verdict, which bestowed so considerable an ad. ditton of fortune on the suitor, was hailed with universal satuiaction. Oo the " subsequent morninsr. Mr. Scarlett moved for a rule to show caute why a new trial should not be granted. He submitted bit. applicant on two grounds : 1st That th) letters containing the contract of marriage bad not been duly stamped, as he' contended on the trial they oognt io nave been. And eecondry, on the ground of excess of damtgi. It svas upon the latter ground be princieily 'relied. He observed, that it was the first instance in any similar casa.to wmcn damages to such an enormous a - mount bail been given. Mr. Justice Bayley was of opinion, that the objection cf the learued counsel, as to the letter containing the contract requiring a stamp, h l the least validity. Upon the question of excessive damages, he was likewise of opinion there not l) - et sufficient grounds laid bcloro the court to disturb tho verdict. Taking all the circumstances of (he case into consideration, he was not prepared to say, that if it had been put mo option oi me young iu; to have received inn ucioiinnnt as her bushiind in preference of 7000 which bad been awardsd her, she would not have choseu to have accepted him rather than the damages to that or any other amount. tie inanaeu vioa me constitution of tbe country ft.i1 nl..i , k ... . i . - . had where it wat. Upon the whole, he thonzht he ought not to disturb a verdict dispassionately sir eo, in a case where, if ho had been one of the jury, be might himself have been inclined to have warded even larger damages. The rule for a trial was accordingly refused. JVEJr - YOUK brEXLNG POST.

The fathers of our political institutions foun tbem on the principal that freemen were best protectors ot ineir own uuerue richts, and all Uiote whom we venerate u tailed to enjoin upon u the necessity of a well nmnixeil. and well diaciniincd militia. We live not been without experience ui advantage and competency of this kind force. The revolution, at it very Dirui, bathed in the blood of our citizen soldier, nnr fnes were tauelit at Hunker's Mill, Fort Montgomery and Saratoga, how far the spirit of freemen enabled tliem to conieou wm ilikrinlined mercenaries.

The gloriout contest at Chippewa, ruitourgn ana New Orleans, will never tie lorgoucn, uu while thev live in the memory of man, it will also be remembered that he heroe of those achievements were American yeomanry, assembled at the post of danger by the first war cryof their enemv. Though his lastdesperate attempt to invade our toil wne made beyond reach, our country acknowledge! me rea diness with winch we prepared to meet mm when it wat thought hit migtity Host wat ue lined to our shores. Among the band of citizens who put them - sclvet in arrav on that occasion, none was mure conspicuous than the regiment you commanu. The remembrance of their alacrity on that occasion, the promptness which they have al f . .1 ways shown, when their assistance has been asked to preserve the peace of the community to support the laws of our country, their constant sokl'.er - like appearance and deport, ment. have rendered tliem worthy the lunior able testimony of approbation which I shall now present ami wuh it you will please to receive assurances that the f ithers of the city, in whose behalf I act, entertnin a perfect cuofi dence that this standard, while U is cuarded von, and such as you command, will never deserted in disgrace.

Private lttrs from Georgia, received in tlii city yesterday, state that on the 2Ht of May gen.

Obrd right, who commanded the militia who attacked Che - hiW, had been arrested by gen. Jar&on; but, laving been icleased from custody on a wntol habeas corpus. wr arrested by the povemorof CJeorjia. Tbis unfortunnte affair will lead, we fear, to many unpleasant consequences : we can not conceive, however, that the character of the itste of Georgia will be tliirmatrzed ty this trans action, at one of the papers of that state appre - ber.di. It is not possible that the popple of Georgia cart be blamed lor what they have depreca ted ai strongly as the cilizcnt of auy other ttate a the union.
