Afor hearing arguments and looking into al) the testimony, at dis closed by the affidavits of the state’s wit nesses, the Court, consisting of the Hon' Jnhn J Maxwell, John Harvey and Solo mon Smith, wore of tbe opinion that it was a case, within the definition of Iuvolunta- ry manslaughter in tpe commission of an unlawful act. The prisoner was according ly bailed by font respectable gentlemen, for Ilia appearance at the next Superior Court, in the sum nf five thousand dollars. I would further add, that all the witnesses, excop Raacn, have sworn that it was their belief Harn had no intention to take the life nf Smith.'being engaged in fight Without a weapon of any sort; and that it wns entirely the result of accident; This statement of facts ismndc for the purpose of a (fording to Mr. Harn a fair and impartial trial, anil that public opinion should not be forestalled to the prejudice of a man. who has stood al- ivs deservedly high in his own county d who has a virtuous and amiable Family to share with him, in feelings that fate which 'm.msl L* . ... ,SWI*iwht in which Thht office ia Situated In one teneroeot of the Gity-Hom, Into the property of hi*,pro- jdocoddpr in office, i ThU Hotel, inel“dln. the PuOt-Offiee rooms, bad boon mdrt| ■by hid predecessor, to thai.

For this six month* he had not accounted to hi* predecessor f or t eppoified sum. nornraahfijft any way bboad legally to pay him a apecified aum, or more than what a jury might determine it to be worth. Ink conversation,.however, which took plnct between him and his predecessor, and he thinks alter the Pout-Master Genera) had' signified his intention uf making the appoint ment, Mr. Early Tematked. that he thought lur the rent of tho office, thid perquisites of letter box rent,' and the privilege of board ing in the Hotel tt the rate of {260 per an ' num, if allowed to the Post Master and hist Clerks,-he the Post-Master, in conaideratioqj of these privileges, - ought to pay for office rents* nnrob as {800 per annum, Hie ar rangement of board; at {260 per annum, was founded on a previous stipulation between Mr. Early nod the landlord of the Hotel, when lie leased him the building :—That in to say, the landlord for tome advantage in the cootfact, yielded to hiei; agreed to board and lodge under hi« regular price*. Mr. Early himself, and afl these who might be -iiigSgi d in the Puet-OIBce: when,, there fore, Mr..Early agreed to extend thid privi lege to bis successor, he was bound to ac count to kimfor its value. It ti incontrovertible, that the Post Mas. ter and Ida .two Clerks did receive their hour.I at the Hotel, *t ihe rate ofd-260 per annum, that he accounted to Mr. Early only fnr tliis board, and not to the landlord of the Hotel, until the foreclosure of the inortgagi j t-ove mentioned. It is also undeniable that M 1 Scudder. as well as Mr. DriscUl, then r.d dill in the Puat-Offiee, since the traftsler .i the building to the Babk of Darien, have paid at (lie rate of sereO dullars per week for their board at the same lintel and the same 'able—making a difference of {l 15 between the board of {250 bj the year, and {7 per week, or {:)65 hi the year. This pi ivilege, therefore, of board, at {250 per annum, ia demonstrated by facts to be worth to Oach individual, {115 by the year, and as it waa enjoyed by three persons, to wit—the Post-Master and bis two Clarks, may be valued at {-.45; this sum deducted from {800, the enormous rent which it wav staled was paid Mr. Early, leaves only {155 for the rent, of an office fitted up io tho bett possible stylo—the letter boxes of which have rented and brought iu to the Post-Master, near {TOO per annum, and have the present year .i ltd -ed him some,! hiug abort of {4')0.

The amount he gave was considered large, as the vessels were all sank, and it wu supposed were near ly destroyed by worms; but it was quite the reverse. Most of them have been raised by the meant of pumps, worked by liorae power, and proved to be perfectly sound, and Mr H. informed me that he anticipated a profita ble speculation.

While on the way to prison, the debtor offered to the officer three lottery tickets, which was all he had to offer. He look them to the creditor, who thereupon directed the officer to release him from confinement. In a few days after, one of the tickets drew a prize of twenty-five tlwnaand dollars. The creditor offered this Itical ticket to the officer, for his fees. whoNbot likeing the number, chose one of the others which drew a Wank. It has not been staled whether the pour debtor has received any part of the prised— but we question the" right of the creditor to bold any more than the amount of his debt and coats.

Tlie ngnimu politician who build* his politi cal fabrick upon hypothetical principles of policy, without regard to justice, tlioug,, he may gain temporary advauUge*, usually finds his .overthrow from the iustrunisulality of liis own craft. r , Mr. Scudder, wi)h some confidence, in dulges-the belief that the foregoing atate- ineiit will matnfeat to thi* community that I he privileges extended to him were-equal to a definite sum in cash, that it left for the rent of the office, situated in the most elegi- hlepart of the city, and fitted up in point of elegance and convenience without, regard to expense, only g100 when the rent of the let- ter boxes is deducted, end that the arrange ment on which this rent ia founded waa de termined by a period of six months. Hebe: lieves it also manifest, that a corrupt bar- S ain could not exist, where mutual coufi- Once and mutual honour are relied upon aa itabaaia. He further believe* that he has demonstrated that Mr. Early had nothing as it regards this office, which he could or had a right toeell. To constitute a bargain aurely the grantor ought to hive somethihg to convey. If it can urged that he had a right ofeontinuanceiothe office to dispose of it is apparent that the Post Master Gen era) ha* been guilty of a criminal neglect n) duty: Neither would this cunelusiou leave room for the suspicion of u bargain, because Mr. Scudder had no right to suppose that the Poit Master General would set inconsistent with the duties of bi* office, and thereby leave to Mr, Early n right to whioh ho was not entitled. ; Detest alone, in eases liko-this, usually carries with it something like obloquy, and oftentimes a conviction, without a knowledge of it* eausaa, that it is merited. Fewer ia ao imposing that it appears to posse** every vir tue. and when it prevails againat Us rare oif- oumstances must interpose their defence, or tha darkness of di«honimr follows it* frown. Mr. Sounder admits himself it* vie tint, but bo has never felt humbled by it. He would, however, feel himself dishonoured in deed, if in hia overthrow he bad fallen letter boxes of wliioli have this year rented for rising {350, which deducted from the sum of {455, leaves about {100 only, paid for rent; nor could tha contihaaoce of this ar rangement exceed aix months, it being de termined by the foreukisure of the mortgage. Will this constitute bargaining for an office t Will aoy man of common sense, under these circumstance^, say Mr. Scudder purchased this office ? From one who hpd not the pow er to bestow it ? From one Who was a de faulter and cuuhl not with propriety bo aua- tained in it ? If Mr, Scudder purchased this office from his predecessor, “ by paying him a rent for the tehoment in which il wu* situated, greatly (i-proportioned to its estimated value," how was Mr. Early lobe secured in the payment o' this rent! If the office be.of value, and Mr. Earlv sold it to Mr. Scudder. relying on his honor for payiaeot. (there waa not a scratch of a pen between them on this subject) he did not in this instance, betray that sagacity which ia usually attiibuled to him. Who. posaeuing his capacity, woulij sell an office and rely upon the honor of the purchaser for :treward? Who would make an illicit bar gain with a man and place the contingency ofpayment in future and on hia honor, when he had the immediate means in his possession ? Who, if disposed to sell an office, would do so without having the purchase money in hi* pocket ? Who would trust a mao oo hia hon or, who enters into an engagement which is not fair and honest! In whatever light this charge is presented, it appears preposterous. He who can believe it, must have a singular faith. He must believe io a straege inuon- sistency in the characters concerned. It renders necessary a compound of honesty ant! corruption—qualities which have about the ssme affinity aa oil and water- The supposition of a purchase from Mr. Early, must be founded on the presumption that he, Mr. Early, could have retained the office, if he had thought proper, fo! surety he had nothing to sell, ao regard* the office, but his right of continuance in it. and if be did not even poseess this right, it mnst be conced ed that he-could not sell it. Tito cironm- itaneauf hia default and the refusal of one .of bit sureties to continue on hia bond, which refusal, at that time, to the knowledge of Mr- Scudder, bud-been communicated to him, Mr. Early will probably ba doomed sufficient to shew that he could not have been entitled to this right of continuance in office. If the Post Master General, wduid atill hare allow, ed him thin right of oootiauaoce, jt would hare been an indulgence inconruttnl with a proper ditcharge tf the duties ql Mr. Scudder has hitharto taken little pains tb defend himself fiom tlie charge of oorrOp. tioo with hia predecessor, because ho did not apprehend that such monatroua doc trio* would be any whore entertained, a* that of bargain-' ing for an office with a panoa unqualified to make aa se an appointment to it. ; fltrlhyg, howev er, it. bad gained credence, he is willing at Early waa about resigning, he advised agaipat that measure, and particularly him that be'did not wish him to reatfs on may lime to declare. Under oath, (hit when Mr. Early waa about him told hi! hla, Mr. Bcodder** account. If at the time he waa bargaining for tho office,- there most have been a strange inconsistency io his eoaHimt. The absurdity is too great to sup pose, that he ouuid have advised him to con tinue in office, and at the same lime have of fered him a fewonl to abandon it..

His object is todissipute tbe misrepresentations and false colours which have hid the truth from thi* community —which have involvod this subject in mystery—which hare placed him in an un happy sitnation, calculated Io produce unfa- vourable conclusions. He, however, feels as sured that when they are convinced uf his in nocence they will award him that justice which is his due.

He would consider il a misfortune from which he could discover no earthly hole of refuge but hit grave. His knowledge, however, of human nature has convinced him (hat charity ever finds a resi dence with the virtuous and wise; but lie doe* not think it requires a great extension of it towards him to believe him innocent of corruption, and that tlie charge assigned a* the ground of hi* remoral from office is ill founded.
