Great sensation has been caused at Toprsand it* yicipity, especially among the resident English, by ihp trial, last week, before the Court of Assizes of the depart ment,'of the Count Forest ier de ; Ct*u!»ort, on the charge of enticing from*lier home, a young girl named Isabella llarnilton, daughter of au Eng lish clergy mu o, resident at Tour*. months ago, M. de Foresiiei went’live in ibiit city, for the bene fit ol bis wife's health, and in his walks he W If in with Miss Isabella H-, who, with her (.wane, accompanied her young sisters and biothers in their promen ades.

She used also to indicate to; him, by placing a flower-pot in a pe culiar position in her window, in what C romcnade he might meet her. He, at tft. said the indictment, persuaded her to leave her father’s roof, and in com pany with the L mnc, a young girl nam ed Adele Gendran, aged seventeen, to go to I’nris, where he said he would secure her an apartment, and would provide for both. Isabolla, it seemed, was very glad to get away from home, os her parents were about to semi her to school in England—a measure to which-aim hod the strongest possible re pugnance ; she even, it appeared had gone the length of telling Forest ier that shp wopld sooner commit suicide by poison than be sent away. ^Forestier, it was alleged, arranged with bor that she and her servant Adele should leave the house of the Rev. Mr. Hamilton in the evening of the 22d May last, and that they should go to Paris. He had previously written a letter to a friend wf his, the Baron de Viver, telling him to meet the girls and provide lodg ings 4br them. This letter he com menced by saying: • I send tni you, mv dear friend, a young English girl, aged fifteen, with a pretty little face, light hair,' clear blue eyes, delicate nose, sensual mouth, and a slightly prominent chin. She is :he daughter of an Irish minister, who has a host of children.— Site will l»e accompanied by a little tonne of seventeen, with auburn bair.Jfcc.. nn e«i Adele.

After returning thanks for the-kind welcome extended. vani Adele lo «lo so like Wise! It was uly by their entreaties *bat she had ;one. On arriving at Paris, Vivier told er that Forest ier was in love with Iter, and would die if obliged* tr* lire without her- When told ol the way in which he had spoken of her in his letter, she burst into tears, and said, 44 Ab ! it is painful to see his contempt for me! I opened tny h>*art m him, and he learn ed that I loved hint. Yes, ( knew be was married. Alas! I know not bow 1 could have acted so !* In the third examination Isabella again varied her story, rib© said she bad laid too much to the count’s charge; that, in consequence of dissension* with-her sisteT, she had resolved on leaving her parents; that she had declared to Forestier that if he would not take her away she would \u>i$nn herself, and so on. She added that she had spoken against him on the last occasion, because she had been told lb at he had declared be would sooner goto the galleys for life than marry her. At the trial (which look place before court crowded Co excess,) Isabella, her father, mother, ami elder sister, did not appear to give evidence, though all bad been summoned. The principle evidence for the prosecution consisted in the reading of the indictment, and in the testimony of Mr. Hailey, Lieuten ant Colonel-Campbell, and a younger brother and sister of Isabella, as to the precise age of that young lady. They all staled that she Was about fourteen. This point was important, as, by French law, the crime of what is called de- tournenent d'vne jtunt Jille mature, ly be committed when the girl is der sixteen; after that, she isennsider- ered a free agent, and is accountable for her own actions. Baron de Vivier examined, but his evidence threw little light on the affair. When asked by the President- how he could have acted as he had done, he said he had been influenced by his friendship for de Forestier. It was slated that, since this unfotunate affair, Forestier’* wife had died, and that he, anxious to make all the reparation in his power for the injury he had done her, had offered marry her, but that her father bad pos itively refuted. Forestier caused evidence to be giv en by several persons, to prove that he Jiad every reason to believe, from Isabella’* personal appearance ami •liter circumstances, that she was more 2 ualit : es and inioitice of the so-called ’nmpromiso bin, and to show that it presented the same issues, though un der a different name, upon which Louis iana has repeatedly expressed her de cided sentimentsthat the pill which had been frequently rejected by them bad ooly been gilded to deceive the South into swallowing it. He had, in his course, faithfully carried out the ex- E ressed sentiments of the people of ouisiana. He bad voted against the admisston of California, under a Consti tution-embodying the Wifmot Proviso, and excluding the South from a partici pation in the benefits of a territory ac- quirod by-the joist vaIor,-exertion. and treasure of the people. Ifjait Consti tution wax made by speculators, who bad no interest in California; but who thus undertook to fix in all time to come the destiny ol a country, four-fifths of which had never been occupied or seen by them. He bad also voted agaiost the creation of two Freesoil States out of the territory of Texas. In fine, he had sustained the rights of Louisiana and the South to stand on an equality with the other States. He had resisted the attempt to impose upon them the burden of seventy-five out of a hundred millions of the cost ot the Mexican war, and at the same time to exclude them irom all the advantages of that In his course he had not only strug gle against some of the gigantic intel lects of the country, but bad experi enced the still greater difficulty of hav- ing to protect bis own constituents against themselves—of resisting the floods of calumny and misrepresentation which had been on this subject by the press of this State, with some honora ble exceptions. He was very severe upon journals which, instead of enlight ening the people on the matter, had in volved the important questions which agitated the country in such a gloom and darkness that, although the Com promise was on the Up* of every body, lie doubted if there were a dozen men tn the city who kuew what it was.

Amongst other places of curi osity and interest, she was induced by feelings ot the tendercst compassion to look in ot the room appropriated to the reception of those"destitute children, to be examined as to their fitness for the charity of the Orphan Asylum. Imme diately on her entering the room, a lit tle girl of about the same age of her own lost child sprang into her arms, called her mother, and by endearing caresses, evinced her joy at being re stored, ns she believed, to her lost pa rent. On inquiry, the following facts were elicited relative to her previous history. A.few hours after the dreadful tor nado, a steam boat landed at Natchez, when a servant girl brought u little girl on board, stating that she had walked out with '.he child just before the storm commenced, and that on her return, she found the house entirely demolish ed—*she had been looking for her mis tress in every direction, and had almost arrived at the painful conviction that she was buried beneath the ruin*. The chambermaid of the boat offer ed lo taka charge of the child, whilst the girl returned lo make a further search; and during her absence the boat started for Naw Orleans—the child remained on board. On the return trip every inquiry was made at Nachez tor the family or ser vant, but nothing could be heard of them. The child continued on the boat, under the charge of the chamber maid, until the captain objected to her remaining on board. Then she was placed at an infaut shchool in Now-Or- leans, the chambermaid visiting her and defraying her expenses on each arrival of the boat, until the yellow fever de prived the little nuicasiof her last friend, the good chambermaid. The woman who kept the infant school then turned the child into the street, from whence she was taken to the room where she had the happiness of finding a second mother. The lady whom she believed to be her mother determined to adopt her, and since then she has been treated in all i*espect as of the family. So careful of her happiness has this truly charitable lady been, though the little child is now a fine intelligent girl of between twelve and thirteen year* of age, and associ- :ted with the lady's own children, both Union of to-day is the Union of 1787?

Several dark col ored sisters were visible in the cornets. Messrs .Garrison, Phillips, Burlughand Foster were aUt present. The Cou- Vriitiuii was organized •«« follows: Pre sident—Miss Pauline VY’. Davis, ol Rhode Island ; Vice Piesidenis—Rev. W. II. Channiijg, of New York, Sarah Tyndall, of Pennsylvania ; Secretaries —Hannah M. Darlington,, of. Pa., Jos. C. Sou i ha way, of New York. Miss Davis, on inking the£hair, read a very elaborate pbillippicul and social istic add retson the wrongs and right* ol women. She presented (herestraints under which woman is bound down it» slavery, in a very touching manner.'— She asserted the equality of woman bv nature, and protested she was entitled to equality in politics, legislation, and every thing else. Woman wanted an equal chance to the unfolding of her great capacities: she was bound to have it. Society was in n slate of barbarism while it denied the equality ol privileges political, religious, anil ail other privi leges. On motion of Lucretia Mott, who con sidered the address too tame, the ques- ion of adoption was left open to debate; md, on motion, all those present, white and black, were invited lo participate. Letters were received from which the " flowing extracts were read. Mr. Lucius R. Hymle, of Cincinnati, put in a letter maiutaini'.ig the equality of woman in her rights to all the privi leges assumed by man—the right to vote, to hold offices, und logo to battle if necessary, leaving man to take their share of the duties of the kitchen and nursing. Miss Elizabeth WHborn, of Ohio, put a protest against the despotism, which makes them inferior beings, in point of intellect, when it was no such thing. She thought that Jenny Lind, tn her public^inging for the amusement of the tyrant! over Her sex, was violat ing female delicacy. Speeches and resolutions of similar purport were read and adopted. The Convention adjourned at half past 10, P. M., to meet the following morning. „ . And vbst I don’t knorr I am irilling to fart.

She was, at the time of her being adopted* about (wo years old, a very beulifel and intelligent child, with uncommon fair cotnplexiion, brown hair, blue eyes, with long black eye lashes- She had forgotlon her own name and that of her parents, but from her knowing the names and various articles of luxury, and speaking of her father’s carriage, and from her entire freedom from any vulgarism in manner or thought, it is presumed that her family were respectable. If any reliance could be placed on the con versation of so young a child, it might be supposed that her parents were for eigners—perhaps Scottish, perhaps Catholic. It was supposed that her own parents were dead, but from feels lately elicited such is probably not the case; and it is for Ibe purpose of gaining informal, that the little that is known of her histo ry is made public.

This last act of the Directory has been disap proved of by some of the contributors, and the result is that a suit has been commenced against the committee.— The prosecutig parties are Daiiel Crowley, o| East Boston, who gave $100, and Patrick Murray, of Ann street, who gave $50. The case came before the Court of Common Please on Tuesday; but after consultation of the counsel on both sides, it was transferred to the Supreme Court. March Term.— Boston Courier, J llh uft.
