I have this moment received a letter from an American gentleman, dated in Madrid, Spain, 10th of May, giving an account of the capture of an American vessel in the Mediterranean, by a Mexican privateer or pirate. This took place last month. The Mexican vessel is called the Unico, and the American prize the bark Carmelite, 198 tons, of Bangor, Maine, Captain Littlofield, being on her voyage from Porto Rico to Trieste. The American consul at Barcelona communicated the news to the American minister at Madrid, and a demand was made for the release of the bark. The Unico was fitted out ut (Jran. The captain is a Spaniard, who had fled from justice in Spain. The crew are all Spaniards. She reported she had cleared out at Vera Cruz, although it is certain she never was out of the Mediterranean. They are furnished with naturalization papers from some Mexican agent. The Spanish authorities are conniving at the piracy ; but the American minister hns taken up the matter with great determination. It is said that there are two or more Mexican pirates in the Mediterranean?all fitted out in ojmiii, uiuai liivct/ , uui to uicic any /iiiicuvuii ship of war in that sea to protect American commerce, which numbers a dozen and more of large Teasels. I trust that the Government at Washington will look to this matter at once; and if the Spanish Government do not act properly, that an American fleet will take satisfaction out of Havana. I write this for the steamer of the 19th inst., but it may miss. I learn that Power's famous statue of the Greek Slave is going out to the United States. The Hon. Mr. Polk, charge dee affaire* at Naples, has just arrived in Paris. P. S.?I just learn that there are two American ships of war at Gibraltar. That will do. The Consistency of tb? Mexican?Indications nf Pnm. The recent advices from Mexico have changed the whole face of the relations of the two countries. It is reported that Herrera has been elected President of the Mexican republic. If so, he has been elected as a peace president, by the peace party, aided silently by those who are openly advocates for a continuation of the war. If Herrera has been elected, as is reported, negotiations will, probably, be at once resumed, and a declaration of peace is not far off. We, however, have our doubts relative to the truth of this report. It is not impossible that such is the fact; but it is highly improbable. We fear it is too good to be true. The clergy of Mexico have for some time past, in fact, since the commencement of the war, been very bitter in their denunciations of the Yankees, and very much opposed to peace, almost in any shape and upon any terms. The people of Mexico are ruled by the clergy, and it is therefore proper to infer that the musses wers in favor of the war, because the priests were so. It ib the Congress that elects the President of that Republic; and even in the event ef Herrera having been elected by that body, it by no means follows that the people will submit, or that it may not produce another revolution. The election of Santa Anna appeared to be, at the latest dates, entirely out of the question.? From the efforts he was making to secure votes, we should judge that he was very doubtful of his success. There has been for some time past a class of citizens in Mexico anxious for peace, and we have no doubt the peuce party has rapidly increased in strength and influence since the capture of the principal cities of the republic This party has been for sometime much stronger than appeared on its face, as there are no doubt many citizens of that republic secretly striving to establish peace between the two countries, who are openly advocating war to the death. Of all classes of citizens in Mexico, whose interests would be increased and ndvanced by an immediate peace, we should think the clergy was the most important. Nearly all the resources of the Mexican gavernment to carry on the war, must be derived from the church?the whole brunt of the contest falls upon the clergy; their properly win oe sacnnccu wunout accornpnsiiing the result required, and they are expending their treasurer in vain. The beet policy of the church in to use ita influence to bring about a speedy peace. If there was tha slightest chance of making a succeaaful reatatance at any point, if there was any poaaibility of preventing the progress of the Yankees by furnishing funds to raise troops, it would be proper and just; but tha clergy are the most enlightened class of Mexicans, and they know very well that a continuation ot the war is only plunging their country deeper and deejy;r into misery, and exterminating as fast as possible their people. It is our most fervent wish that the report of llerrsra's election may be confirmed. t Military Movements.?Company f, Lieut. R. T. Maclay, 8th Infantry, DO men*; Company G, Captain Larkin Smith, 8th Infantry, Do men; Company II, Lieut. C. F. Lovell, 2nd Infantry, 90 men; Lieut. W. K. Van Itokkelcn, 7th in- ' fantry, Commissary to the'detachment, sail for i Vara Crus to-day, in tha ship Ma^smseh. ) ntamOnifron Um Bnudli. We have received, by the clipjwr ship Courier, Ca,.?t. Wolfe, from Rio de Janeiro, files of the Jornal do Comercio and O Mtrcanti! to the 23d April. The dispute between Mr. Wise and the government had been revived, it may be said, as the Jornal, which has a leader on the subject, in which much indignation is expressed at the manner in which the Brazilian Minister at Washington, Senor Josd Caspar Lisboa, had arranged the matter with our government. It says that it cannot credit the story that he had made any apologies to the United States for any supposed insult that might have been committed against their flag by the Brazilian govern[ ment. It expresses an opinion that the Emperor ana niscuDinet win never agree 10 mis urrengexnent, and calls loudly for the dismissal of Senor Lsboa. The public mind seems to be very much excited ugainst the American government, and some of the articles in the Jornul are scurrilous in the extreme. We give an extract:?. "This rash and inconsiderate conduct on the part of the Washington Cabinet, shows the meet lamentable ignorance of the first principles of the law of nations and inaratime law. and really causes us fully to credit the account given of them by certain authors, vis: that the young men of the United States are so completely engrossed in money getting that they disdain entirely any cultivation of the arts and sciences, and leave literature and its kindred delights entirely to the womanside. Mrs. Trollope's journey in the United States, Gustavo de Beaumont, Maria, or Slavery in America.'' This is very amusing, and Bhows the state of knowledge regarding this country in Bruzil. The Emperor was making a tour of the pro vinces. The news from the Argentine Republic, is not later than we have hud before. The U. S. store ship .Southampton, nailed from Kio Janeiro on the 21st of April, for Valparaiso. Surgeon Sinclair, und Midshipman Bell, of the S., exchanged with Surgeon McClelland and Midshipman Morris, of the Bainbridge. The .Bainbridge sailed on a cruise, to warn whalers not to trade on the coast. The frigate Columbia. Commodore Rosneau, was at Kio on the 23d of April, to sail for home in July. Tne following are from our correspondents: Hio df JiSiiio, 19tb April, 1847. The Southampton arrived a few days sinoe, with despatches from the United States government for Mr. Wise and Com. Roeseau; also from the Brasilian Minister, at Washington, for his government. The terms ot the settlement of the Davis affair, were exactly what every American (except those who have some pique against Mr. Wise) wished for and expected. American eitisens abroad may well be proud of their government for the stand it took in this affair. 1 am positive there is not an American oitlzen at home or abroad, who, if the testimony on both sides was published, but what would be full of indignation at the outrageous insult offered to our flag by the unjust imprisonment of Lieut. Davis and sailors, of the Saratoga. The editors of the newspapers at home who espoused the cause of the Brazilians in this matter, should reside here a short time, and I will guaranty they would be satisfied on a few visits to the Palace square, that when civilised beings visit this oountry they should be protected. The police regulations are the worst in the world, and the policemen are nearly all negroes, armed with sabres, who would oonsider it a useless appendage if they did not cut and slash every poor drunken;sailor they meet. I have known frequent cases of brutality displayed towards foreigners here by the police, and when satisfaction is demanded by the Minister of their country, the only reply given by thie government la, it will be inquired into; this ii the last heard of it. The editors of newspapers here are very much enraged that the American government, instead of demanding and obtaining satisfaction for the Insult offered our flag, should not immediately have reoalled Mr. Wise and Com. Kosseau, and punished Lieut. Davis for drawing his sword in self-defence. They recommend this government to send Mr. Wise, at once, his passports?to recall Mr. Lisboa for doing what was right, and to place certain restrictions upon our vessels of war when they oome into the ports of this empire. Should the goverment follow the advice of those editors?,Our government oertalnly will not allow these people to go unpunished?send out several vessels of war with a commissioner on board, and have a settlement of all old standing claims, fee. tea. Our merchants at home must not think that a recourse to arms to obtain our just rights, will interfere with business for any length of time; as these people, when they see that things are coming to a serious issue, will give way, and be very cautious hereafter how they incur our displeasure. JJR 8.?I understand Mr. Wise offered to have the correspondence and testimony, on both sides, published, for the Brazilians to deolde which was right; but the Brazilian government declined. Kio pc Janciro, April 19, 1847. We beg to inform you that the American whaling bark Sarah and Esther, of Oreenport, was brought In here a few days since from Ilha Grande, by revenue cutter, charged with taking in wood and water, and giving oil in exchange, thereby Infringing the revenue laws. It hae been the cuitom for many years, for our whalers and sealers to stop Into Uha Grande and other small ports on this coast, for wood and water, and until the present Instance no opposition was ever made by the Brazilian authorities; but, as we now understand, orders have been to capture all foreign vessels found In ports of the empire which are not of entry, we consider it well to give you this information, so that instructions may be given to your captains, not to enter said ports. We annex a list of the ports which have customhouses Rio de Janeiro, Bahla, Pernambuoo, Maranham, Para, Rio Grande, 8. Joze do Norte, Porto Alegre, Santos, 8t. Catharines, Alagoas, Parahiba, Tortalesa, Sergipe, Araoatv, Esplrito Santo, Rio Grande do Norte, Paranahlba, Paranagua, and S. Borja. In referenoe to the whale ship Sarah and Esther, seized by the government, Capt. Codman, of the bark Hollander, who arrived last night, says:?" A legal investigation was to have taken place in a few days. On the news ofheroaptureatRio, the U. S. brig Bainbridge, Capt. Williamson, was despatched to Ilha Grande for the purpose of warning off any other American vessel, or retaking any which might have been seized by the Brazilian government. The Bainbridge had scarcely got out of the harbor before a corvette was despatched by the authorities of Rio. to follow the B. and watch her movements. Quite an unusual excitement prevailed in Rio in oonsequenoe, it having been reported that the corvette was ordered to sink the Bainbridge should she interfere in behalf ef any captured vessel. The Bainbridge not having returned, though shortly expected pX the time of our sailing, we are unable to give any further account of her movements." The French Mail Steamers.?The following> relative to the French steam-ships, is from a letter dated Paris, May 15. The French^ steamers commence running on the 31st Inst. The " Missouri" is the first boat. They have changed their French for American names, and are called the " Missouri, New York, Philadelphia, and the Union." They are to run every fortnight. The government lends the company the boats for ten years? the company are to keep them insured and are to pay for r?>nftira. Blculcal. Italian Omra.? At Palmo's to-night we arc to be pre seated again with Rossini's grand opera of " Semira mide," in reference to which it may be said with truthfulness, that the greatest care has been taken to produce it in such a manner as to givs satisfaction to those who favor the managers with tyoir patronage. Slgnorina Ba. rlH is received with the greatest applause in the part of Semiramide, and Slgnora Pico in Arsace. is in her own own proper roie. B.-noventano an Asain, has the opportunity of displaying his great talent to the best advantage, and Benedetti does the part of Idrenus as he does every thing which be undertakes when he is in condition to sing, well. The orehestral performances are of a superior order, and reflect great credit upon the leader and his aids. Take it all in all '' Semiramide" is so good that notwithstanding that it had already been before the New York public, we are surprised that the company at Paimo's did not bring it out earlier in the season. Maf.iteo Darili, brother to theprima donna, at Pal mo's, takes his benefit at that bouse on Monday night Those who know Signor B. know him for a most amiable young man, and an artist of abilities which far outstrip nis pretensions. Christy's Minstrels.?This Is the last night of the performance of this most successful band of melodists, and the benefit of (Jeorge W Christy, the " bone castanett" player, the most versatile and accomplished performer in the oountry. He is unquestionable the "Oabriel Ravel " of Ethiopian representatives. 1 he only regret we have is, that the Hall will prove too small to accommodate bis many admirers. He is an immense favorite, and will assuredly have the house crowded to its utmost capacity. Castlk Garden.?How delightful it is to sit on the kalann ? an<i Vase aokn panafifln* fha a/lft at rains nf mnata from Strauss and other eminent oompoeera. performed by Munck* celebrated braaa band, and all thie enjoyed for I9X rente The coemoramaa. too, are a eource of much pleaeure, presenting view* of eome of the moat magnificent cities and villM, with riou and varied scenery of sea and land. Vacxhall Garprn.?This evening the company at Vauxhall Garden will be again entertained by Campbell's Ethiopian Opera Serenade!-*. The band will, according to their bill, perform in twenty-five different piece*, consisting of songs, dances, glees, and other peculiarities of the southern negTO. These Ethiopian perormances are becoming remarkably popular, both in this country and in Europe. Persons like well to be amused for an hour or two. and the minstrels furnish the amusement at a cheap rate The garden is in excellent order at present. Leoroi.n or Mevr.a, the lion pianist, is In town. There are many ears that would like to open their doors to his lovely train of melodious sound*. Uerx and Nivorl were to set out from St. Louis for Alton on the JHth of May. J.'" .MMortmlv - w* call attention to Atwui'a advertisement la another oeiuta, Ptti Tkeatsi.? Ma.

Ha haa rtudied closely the manners of tha world, and shows the result of observation and experience by a humorous and life-like portraiture. The public will regret to bear that this popular favorite lies on a nick bod, from which he may iiover rise again, and needa that aid which the citisena of New York (to their pride be it spoken.) never withhold from the talented and deaerving. The management and meinbera of the Park company, before and behind the curtain, have volunteered their services, and that excellent artiat, James VYallack, with other popular performers, have proffered their valuable aervices. A favorite who haa toiled year after year to amuse and please the patrons of 'Old f)rury,'?depressed in mind and ruined In constitution, appeals from a aick oouch, surrounded by hla wife and family, for that patronage and support to-nigbtao necessary in the hour of affliction. Friends of the drama, let not the appeal be made in vain. Bowsav Theatre.?Mr. Vache takes a benefit at the Bowery theatre to-night, and if a good bill can securo a good house, he will have one. There are throe pieces announced.the first ofwhloh is ''The Carpenter of Rouen." a play of stirring interest?then comes a dance, the ! Highland Fling, by Miss Barnett; after which the "Artful Dodger" will be performed, and last of all, the. favorite national drama of "Putnam, the Iron Son of '76 !"? In the second piece Mr. De Bar appears as Timothy Dodge, being the third appearance of that gentleman during the present engagement. The caterer for the night is certainly not remis in his efforts, and it is to be expected that his endeavors to please will be crowned witli the reward whieh hie service* deserve. To render the engagement of Mad'Ue Blangy as bril Hunt as possible, the managers with whom she en gaged at Boston, have also engaged the ballet corps of ttie I'ark theatre, to aid in bringing out Mad'Ue B's. beautiful ballets, in which she requires to be weU supported in order to give a good effeot. Mr. Booth played Richard III. at the Albany Museum, on Wednesday night, and was to appear again on the following evening. The Ravels are still at Cincinnati. I General Tom Thumb will appear in Boston on Monday 1 next. _____ City Intelligence. j Tws Wksthir.?Yesterday was wet in the early part ] of the day, and the sun shone out brilliantly about 3 1 o'clock, when the thermometer rose to 78 degrees. The J heat was intense about 6 o'clock. , Odd Fellowi' Celkbbation.?The celebration of the 1 '14th anniversary of the Grand Lodge of the State of 1 new lum, buu uib ufrouiwiiy ui injriug iu? corner ntuue of Odd Fellows' Hall, did not take place yesterday, but was postponed till this morning at 11 o'clock. The Figurative Wonder.?We have, since our last notice of this genius, P. N. Deshong, had several opportunities of testing the principles upon which his system is based, and from the progress we have made in acquiring the rapidity with which he solves any problem.adds up any number of figures, multiplies, divides, or, in fact, any use to which they may be appropriated, satisfies us that he can impart to others the faculty he possesses in such an eminent degree. We advise all whose business requires a constant use of figures, to see Mr. Deshong by all means, and profit by his instruction. They say figures will not lie, and whatever may be said to the contrary, we know Mr. Deshong is correct in all his calculations, and if any one cannet learn his system, he must have a very thick head. From the East.?The New Haven and Springfield cars arrived last evening with their usual punctuality.? We have, through Mr. Cloyes, a supply of Boston papers, brought over this route. Fire.?A fire occurred yesterday morning about 3 o'clock, in a frame building in Thirty-fifth street, ownod by a man named Duer. The entire premises were consumed. Calvary Church.?This church was consecrated, with all due ceremony, yesterday, by Bishop Deianoey, of Western Now York. There was also a very full attendance of clergy from the various Episcopal churches in the city. The congregation on the occasion was very large and highly respeotable. The church will be open for divine service on Sunday morning next. Fatal Accident.?The Coroner was called to hold an inquest also upon the body of James Teaguc, a native of Ireland, aged '16 years, who came to his death by Injuries accidentally received by the explosion of a charge of powder, while engaged in blasting rook on the line of the New York and Erie Railroad, on Wednesday last. Verdict accordingly. Shameful Negligence.?An instanco of more culpable negligence, has never come to our knowledge than the following one, in which the Coroner was called yesterday to make an investigation. The case was that of an F.ngllshman, named Samuel Thomas, aged 67 years, who came to hia death by debility and exhaustion, arising from want of medical attendance and proper nourishment, the particulers of which will be gathered from the following testimony adduced before the Coroner. Margaret Pur,?let, residing at No. 149 Orange street, being duly sworn, deposed as follows : ?The deceased and > his wife, who is also deceased, occupied the kitchen at- I taohed to the front house; his wife died on the 37th of April last; two weeks ago to-day, the deceased was taken sick?he lived alone?he has been confined to his bed since Sunday night; my daughter and myself visited him several times, and gave him water to drink and some nourishment, as long as he could swallow; on Monday I went to the captain of the 14th ward police, and told him of the deceased and of his situation?that he was sick and had no one to take care of him ; on Tuesday 1 went again to the station house?the ' day after this a visiter came to see him from I the Alms House ; in the afternoon of Wednesday a carriage came from tha^Alms House to take ; the deceased to Bellevue, but the driver could get no one to assist him in placing the deoeased in it? , He then went away without him; while the carriage was waiting at the door, one of the policemen said,''Let the , man die, and when he is dead, then take him away." VesterdaT the man living in the basement, went to the station house again, and from there went down to the c Alms House; last evening the wagon in which they convey the living and dead, came to the house for tne deceased; the driver said the deoeased was dying, and refused to take him away; yesterday 1 went to the station house again, and requested that the deceased might be , removod, as the man was helpless and alone, without t medicine or medical attendance; he died about sis , o'clock on Thursday evening; the deceased got cold; 1 j believe, with assistance, that he might have lived; I paid ) all the attention to him that was in my power. , Mke-Ano or Ma. Blunt's Faience.?A meeting of persons friendly to the nomination of Mr. Blunt as the whig candidate for District Attorney, was called at the Broadway House last evening, at eight o'clock, to take I such measures to secure his election as might be deemed expedient. The meeting was called to order at nine o'clock. i After a chairman had been appointed, that gentleman I made a few remarks and took his seat. j A motion to adjourn was made, but lost. I After a silence of a few minutes a similar motion was i put, but met the same fate. j A gentlemen present then moved that those present adjourn to their several wards, and exercise their influence in promoting tho election of Mr. Blunt. The motion was put, and. as was thought, carriod?but the nays \ insisted upon a division. The parties accordingly divided, and It was decided i that the motion was carried. i The meeting then adjourned. 1 The steamer Admiral made her first trip from this | city to Boston in Ui hours. Police Intelligence. Important wflrrnt of an Old Convict.?Officers Murphy and O'Brien, of tho 14th ward, arrested yesterday afternoon, at the livery stable kept by Mr. Co wen in Crosby street, a notorious thief by the name of Chauncey Larkin, alias William Huffman, alias O. II. Perry, on a charge of stealing and defrauding various tailors, jewellers and other store keepers out of different amounts of goods, ranging from $5 to $300. It appears that this audacious thief, who has only been liberated from the State prison about 'i months, visited llrooklyu last month on a " lay," and entered the jewelry store occupied by Mr. John D. Chase, No. 171 Pulton street, on the 28th May. and represented himself to bo the sen of Commodore Perry, and from his genteel appearance and polite address. Mr. Chase was induced to sell him a gold lever watch, gold fob chain, silver card case, bresst pins, and various other articles of jewelry, amounting to i near $300. for the payment of which he gave a check on I the Atlantic Bank, Brooklyn, signed O il. Terry This check was found, upon presentation, to be fraudulent. 1 but too late to detect the rascal before he escaped with the property. A few days ago he called upon Mr. Tie- , man. in Chatham street, and represented that he was a , pupil of Dr. Mott, by whom he was sent to purchase two or three disccting kuives, and a small saw. which he wanted in great baste, as tho doc tor and himself were compelled to amputate a man's leg that a.tcrnnon at the asylum. Mr Tie- | man, supposing from hie genteel appearance, and hie general knowledge of the instrument*, allowed him , to take them off without the pay These instruments, ! together with the gold watch, chain, card case, hreast i Eln, spetacles, and several other artioles, were found on 1* person when arrested, lie has been tricking several tailors around town; one place in Hudson street he obtained awuit of new clothes by representing that he was ' the son of Judge Waterman of the Marine Court The livery stable keepers have likewise suffered by hi* hiring a horse and wagon and then sending it home by a boy when be had finished bis ride, which finally lead to his arrest. Upon the officers making the arrest he endeavored to bluff them off, and would In all probability have succeeded, haathey not sent for their Captain. Mr. David KIssuer, who at once recognised the accused as the notorious Chauncey Larkin Chauncey then finding himself " blown," melted down before the captain like an Ice cream In a noon-day sun, owned up to his rascalities, and was escorted before Justice iMmpson, who committed him for a further' examination. In all probability this is the man, from description, who has " done" the knowing one* around the city,', commonly called the 'confidence" man, of whom the Herald gave an account a few days ago, of an interview between him and a doctor. Mr. < hase offered a reward of >60 for the arrest of this daring rogue and the recovery of the property Persons who have been swindled and robbed by tills rascal, and wish to Identify the Individual, can do so by applying to that efficient and excellent magistrate, Justice Tlmpson, of the third district police, Essex Market. I Stealing a Gold Pencil.? Officers ( ostigan and Hhadbolt, of the Tenth ward, arreeted yesterday, a boy called Louis Frits, os a charge of ftoaUag a gold paaoU oaao, , ?i??? ?r?1 " ?

Juatlee Tlmpaon, however, thought otherwise, and looked tham all np for a further hearing Petit lArceny ?Offlcer Williams, of the 18th ward, arrested yesterday. a boy by the name of Peter Cronan, on a charge of stealing a pair of oars, belonging to John Langdon, of 90th street, near 6th avenue. Com mitted by Justice Rooms. Ji Funny Trick.?We noticed on the police return to the 13th ward, that a Mary Reed, residing at No. 107K Bowery, pioked up in the Bowery, on Thursday afternoon, between Orand and Broome streets, a large roll of bank bills, when a Mr. Newman, of the Arm of Newman h Sandike, of No. 140 Bowery, took it away from her possession, and In return gave her six shillings. This appears to have been the statement of the woman. What Mr. Newman might say in explanation, we are unable to say at present. ^ Law Intelligence.

Jleeney ve Michael Dunn.?This was a motion by petition, that the plaintiff may have leave to prosecute the suit in the name of Joseph Clare, as his next ?-i o-i 1- t ?e IV... u-a .a fWllnara The plaintiff is an old citizen of Brooklyn, aged between 90 and 90 years, and in early life acquired a very large real estate Ho la it appears, without any relative* in this country, except a half sister, who is also very old and Incapable of managing property. The defendant resided with Mr Heeney for a number of years, acted as Ms agent in buying and selling real estate, and while residing with him procured from him conveyances to tiimsclt of seven lots of land in Brooklyn, which are alleged to be worth between $20,000 and $30,000. The aid man afterwards declared to Mr. Gotsberger, and ither friends, that he had no recollection of ever having executed any deed to Dunn, aud if he did, that suoh ileed must have been obtained from him by deceit and misrepresentation, and requested Mr. Gotzberger to employ a counsel and solicitor to take legal proceedings to ict asidu the deed. Mr. Gotsberger accordingly employid a solicitor, who caused the bill to bo filed, praying :hat the deeds might be declared void, and for an njunction to restrain Dunn from mortgaging or selling .he lots or any of them, and also caused a notice of lislendens to be filed in the office of the clerk of lings county. Soon after the filing of the bill, Dunn irocured from Heeney a paper purporting to be a consent ;o vacate the the notioe of slspendens. and also to dismiss the bill. Dunn caused the lispendens to be vacated, ind made a motion,founded on the consent to dismiss that Mil; upon which the solicitor in this cause went to Mr. Heeney, and asked him if he had signed such consent? 10 declared he had no recollection of it. but if he did he was induced to do so by misrepresentation, and directed aim to nrocoed with the cause: the matter then came before the Vice Chancellor, who suggested that a commission of lunacy ought to be cued out and a committee appointed. In pursuance of the Vice Chancellor's suggestion, a commission of lunacy was sued out, under which Mr. Heeney was found to be an Imbecile, and in:apableof managing his own affairs, and committees of bis person and estate were appointed. Under these clr:umstanccs the present application was mode for leave to prosecute the suit. The motion was opposed on the part of Dunn by the Assistant Vice Chancellor?in his character of counsel ho produced a mass of affidavits, 10 show that Heeney was in his perfeot senses and knew rery well what he was about when he executed all the papers mentioned in the petition, and that they were read to him at the time by some of his most intimate friends, and urged that the present was a mere fishing Pill, and ought to be dismissed; that the committee of the estate might file a bill against Dunn, if they were so idvised. He was replied to by Mr. George Wood and Mr. Urierson. who contended that there was sufficient ju the faoe of the papers to show that traud and misrepresentation were used to induce the old man to execute Lhe deeds, and that it would be putting the estate to unnecessary expense-to dismiss the present bill and drive the committee to file a new one. Moreover, the question at issue between the parties could be adjudicated on in this suit. Decision reserved. Common Pleas.?This oourt is adjourned until Tuesday next. Political and Person sd. Gov.

It, however, ap- 1 pears that they have a circulation of only about one half their capital, and only about ons third the amount they are entitled to on their capital, saying nothing of their deposits. The banking capital of Connecticut has for several years past been very uniform, and the amount of specie I on hand has been very regular. The amount of specie was small oompared with the circulation, but the banks of i Connecticut keep a deposit in Boston for the redemption 1 of their issues, whioh does away with the neoessity of keeping a large amount of specie on hand. , The commissioners disapprove the practloe of some of the banks which allows companies, and even single individuals, to incur v -ry large liabllitiea, both on their own paper, and as endorsers of the paper of others. They i found, in the course of their examination, that banks of less than one hundred thousand dollars capital, are allowing oompanles and Individuals to keep up their lines of discount and accommodation, of ten. fifteen, twenty, and thirty thousand dollars eaoh ; while some of the banki of larger capital allow companies and individuals to keep up lines of discount and accommodation of thirtv. flftv. scventv. ninety and one hundred thousand dollarx each. Every bank in the State, after making it* laat dividend, had on hand a surplus of earnings over and above the amount of dividend ; and in some iastanoes, this surplus fund amounts to a full dividend of more than 7 per oent on their capital. The surplus of the several banks is as follows Phoenix and Branch, $81,899 73 ; Hartford, $106,689 89; Farmers' and Mechanics', $40,000 ; Exchange, $97,396 64; Connecticut River, $3,191 88; Middletown, $94,778 49 ; Middlesex County, $6,344 74 ; East Haddam, $6,646 97 ; New Haven. $6,978 64; New Haven Ceunty, $14,000 ; City, $9,098 69 ; Mechanics', $16,187 99 ; Meriden, $4,364 19 ; Bridgeport, $17,400 64 ; Connecticut and Branch, $18,741 39 ; FairOeld County, $8,167 86 ; Danbury, $4918 70; 8tamford, $6,119 36; Windham County, $9,988 94 ; Windham, $9,149 93 ; Thompson, $1,867 04; Tolland County $9,669 89; New London, $3,747 96 ; Whaling. $4,801 19 ; Union, $10,400 ; Merchants', $6,869 97 ; Norwich, $4,769 19 ; Thames, $1,017 71 ; Quinnebaug. $14,179 60 ; Jewett City, $1,880 ; Mystic, $3,669 96; Stootngron, $7,676 69.
