Our olty has just witnessed the after-piece of the
Burdell-Cunningham ihe'atrlcal programme, and,
as is oustemary, * the tragedy, is succeeded by a
farce. The examination of Mrs* Cunningham, by
Polioe Juetice Davison, this morning, was limited
to questions qpnoernlng her name, residence and

gay as any one who throng that fashionable water
ing-place—blooming youth, health and beauty, the
picture of happiness, surrounded by admirers,
(some of whom extended their attentions even up
to the fatal t 3oth of January last,) had no thought
that iti one short half year her oup of happiness
would be changed Into one of misery, her admirers
turned to scorn or 8, and her beauty marred by the
corroding edge of care. From the pipnaclo of her
bright hopes has sho been plunged into despair.
In , hey examination before JuaUpe Davison this
week, she evinced the most poignant and heart:
felt distress—hor jobbing at times preventing h er
utterance. At the close she proceeded to the rcsi*
donee of her aunt, in Lexington avenue, declaring
that she never would enter the threshold of No. 31
Bond street again as long as sho lived.
Now York, as is usual at this period of the yc&r,
is almost deserted by her residents. The watering

i There are many things of interest whioh might
bp said in oonnootion with this battle, of whioh,
however, I shall notice but a few.
The gradual encroachments of the French settlers
nponour western frontier, excited the f jeftlousy of
England/whioh power, ih!'ordor to'maintain 1 her
claims, sent Gonoral BraddOok with ah ariny to
drive the French' from her territories.
Braddock amved in Virginia in,April 1755, and
ai once, in oonnootion with th 4 Governors of tho
Colonies determined to, cornu* *nce operations; and
of tho three expeditions tb ,n agreed upon, ho re
paired to lead the one against Fort-Du Quesno ia
his own person. • ■
■ 'Ab already stated, the number of his forces
amounted to 1200 men, a large proportion of whom ‘
were regulars, and the remainder undisciplined
provincial troops, yet who wero much hotter skilled
in encountering the Indians—with whom tho
French were in alliance, than even the flower of
the British soldiery. Passing up the west bank of
the Monongahela to a point directly opposite the
mouth of a small stream, now known as Turtle
Creek) Braddock determined to crosi the river and
Apursuo the balance of his march toward the Fort on
.the Pittsburgh side. The landing of his forces was
undisputed, and having disposed them in tho finest
military order, hb was marching within a fifteen
minuW walk of this memorable field, the event of
.which which so soon to terminate his coarso with n
fatal baft.
, The formation of tho bank of the rivor at this
point, and extending for half a mile back, is very
peculiar, On the immediate margin of the river
there is a lovel fiat, which oxtondsbaok about two
hundred yards, where it gives way to a second
bottom of about a quarter of a mile in width, but
of much groator elevation; and, at the northorn
edge of this, a third elevation rears its command
ing heights, and which Is still thlokly covered
with wood. It was tho second of these flats, or
tables, that constituted the main theatre of this
important contest. Running across this second
flat, about a quarter of a mile apart, are two deep
leading from the upper margin down to
tho river’s edge. These ravines, owing to tho fact
that the .grounds wero not subjooted to any agri
cultural process, from tho time the battle was
fought until within the last two years, aro still pre
served in about tho same state of formation os they
were described in an ancient record of them, made
about a hundred yoars ago. Large forest trees and
clumps of underbrußh covered the plain between
these two natural ontrcnchraents, which, together
with the latter, afforded the ,mast complete facili
ties for an enemy to ambush, imaginable.
Reader, you have horo a hurried sketch of the
topography of this battle-field. ‘ A few native oaks
still rear their massive boughs upon tho spot, and,
from beneath one of those—within a very few
yards from where Craddock fell, surrounded on all
sides with the fruits of peace and enterprise, we
m&y. picture to our mental vision the gory pand
rama of that trsgio scene. *
It was growing late in the afternoon, when the
Vantof the English reached the western edge of the
enclosure formed by the two ravines, when sud
denly they found themselves the victims of a per
fect hail-storm of halls, aimed with a deadly pre
cision' by an undiscovered foe, and wbioh at onoo
tljrew the regulars Into the utmost oonfusion. It
was at this time that C6lofidl ’tfTashinpton, tho Aid
of General Bfaddock, though but twenty-three
years of ago, saw the importance ( of dictating to
his superior in command! But the advice, of
Washington was unheeded then, and ruin was the
result (Ominous beacon of the past!) .
•The Provincials, seeing (ha great disadvan
tage ip which they were subjected by Attempting
;optnly to fight with « hidden fde, flew behind the
trunks of trees to employ a similar stratagem. But
Braddock, too proud to depart from the scientific
tactics of war—too brave to fly for his life at the
peril of his honor—but alas! too arrogant to profit
by the judioious advice of a subordinate officer,
rushed.forward, sword in hand, and branding them
with cowardioe, actually struck several of his own
men for.thus imitating tho moanness of an Ignomi
nious foe.
, ® , ° t moments tho battlo ragod with impetu
ous fury. Five horses had been shot from under
Braddock before he reoeived his mortal wound;
jilmost.evory British offleorlay dead upon the field,
and whoa the retreat wos oommonced, Washington
wps only living or ■ unwounded mounted person
in thearmy. May wo not ask, In view of this, can
skepticism doubt that the Btrong arm of tho Al
mighty wak that day, and ever after, tho invincible
shield of that inun of men—our own great Wash
ington t . Sixty-Jour officers, and one-half of the
army; wero .'cither* killed or wounded. That the
procedure of. Braddock upon this occasion, was
rash and impolitic, no ono can doubt; yet it is
equally certain, that ho made himself thovolun
iftry, martyr to a courage whioh but fow men pos
sess -.But, trusting that enough has been written
to mind one of tho moat notable events in
our colonial history, I close with a reiteration of
my belief, thnt nothing can more effectually serve
to,k,oep. alive the smouldering embors of our na
patriotism, than the frequent presentation to
•thp through tho medium of the press, the
heroic deeds of our ancestors.

The United States Agricultural Fair at Leals*:

The preparations are rapidly progressing for the
exhibition of this society, to be held at < the Fair
grounds of the Southwestern Agricultural and Me- ■

of the great number of entries that ate expected,
we understand that the Exeontive Committee of
the Sooioty hare determined to commence the exhi
tion on Monday,, August 31st, and,to continue,'it
throughout that week. This exhibition promises to
surpass all that have been held ih this country, and
In many departments it will undoubtedly be >far
more interesting than the Worid’sFaira in England
and Franco. The officers of the society'are indefa
tigable in tbelr efforts to make It all -it should be,
and togivo satisfaction to exhibitors and pleasure 1
to visitors. Tho grounds have been enlarged
and ana several spacious ana elo-‘
gant now buildings have been aaded, among whioh
are a splendid Floral hall and a very extensive Im->
plement hall for the display of machinery in motion.
There will also be provided ample apartments for
tho exhibition of all kinds of manufactures. Tho
display of oattle and horses and stook of all kinds
will bo unusually interesting. The competition
will not be confined to any one State or ■section;
but will , embrace All the States and the Canadas.
We have been Informed that several herds of fine
cuttlo aro already on their way hither, some of
them from Maine and others from Now York and
Canada. There is every prospect that this exhibi
tion will be the most successful and most interest
ing that has over taken plooe. 1 '
The United States Agricultural Society is os yet
in Us infancy, but it is destined to oxert & vast. in
fluence by which not only the common wealth but
tho common weal of the country will be gfeatly
promotod. Our people arc. pot often brought to
gether in groat numbers except for political pur
poses. Wo greatly need other occasions than p6li
oai mootings to bring together the people of various
States, s<j> that they may learn to know each other,
better, and to wear away sectional prejudices, and
cement the bonds of our union in the hearts of the
people. Suoh an occasion will be presented by the
annual exhibitions of this Society, whore the, North
and the South and the Eaatabd the West 1 will meet,
not in embittered strife of party feelings, but in
friendly intercourse and in noble rivalry to-pro
mote the great agricultural interests in whioh all
aro equally interested, and, to exohange kindly
greetings, and to learn that both sections harp
been misrepresented one to* the other', and that
there is in each, muoh of goodness that should en-*
dear it to thq other. If we could have such meet;,
ings more' frequently, there would be. muoh less
danger of any severance of the union of these
States, for tho Union oan never be destroyed while l
the sentiment upon which it depends still livoa in
thb hearts of’bur'people. ’ '* j* *'/ ' 1
The exhibition l will, therefore, exert a very sain
tary inQuonq?, socially M well as upon the fcgriouL.
tural and meohanical interests. It will tend great
ly to Remove seotional prejudices and sectional feel
ings. In this instance there will > come into Ken
tucky intelligent men pud wpmen from,
the Northern States, who will be met cordially arid
kindly by as many thousand* from 1 thb Southern’
States, and .they, will be mutually benefited. Thoy
will moot for a common purpose, to promote the

will have added td the bondS of our Union a new,

over, be'held together’ da one great nation, and
through Its gonial influences the’United States may:

Our Citizens are already preparing for : the re
ception of the vast concourse of visitors from
abroad, who will attend this exhibition.. It will bo
held in the most pleasant season of‘the year,'the
beginning of autumn, and We fire sure that those’
who come among 114 from other States, will be wel
comed with genuine Kentucky hospitality, and. will
carry away with them pleasant memories'of “’the

The President looks remarkably well, and walks

For Tho PressJ
The statement in Tub Press of Saturday, taken
from some other paper, respecting Washington
hav-ng becomo a Mason, ana that tho original
Bible used on that occasion was in tho possession
of the 40th British Regiment, is undoubtedly in
correct. Tho original Bible is now in the posses
sion of the Mosonio Lodge at Frederickburg, Vir
ginia, and was exhibited at the Masonio Hall,
ekmth Third street, only a few years since, by one
of the officers of that lodge, when a subscription
was made to assist the iodgo in orecting a monu

Tho St. Joseph (Mo.) Gazette announces the
death of Madniue Cecilo Roy, the widow of John
Baptiste Roy, of St. Joseph. At the time of her
donth, aho was seventy years of ago. Her history
is intimately connected with that of Missouri.
During the war of 1812, her husband and herself
made a noble resistance to the attack of the Indians
against a block bouse occupied by them at Cote
Sans Dessein, in Callaway county. A large num
ber of the Indians attacked them. Three timeß
wore thoy repulsed, Roy and hi 9 wife keeping up
an incossant fire upon them. iMnd&nr- Roy not
only loaded tho guns used for their defence by Roy,
but she fiaed the rifle herself, and the Indians,
when they did retreat, loft thirteen of their war
riors dead within the stookade of the Fort.

Miss Augusta ;Ct/NSiNOHAtf.—Hiss
Augusta Cunningham, as we stated before,
seems completely prostrated by this new disgrace'
that has oome upon bee name-*«he ia the personi
fication of grief and wretchedness; The slightest
allusion to the murder, the'marriage/or the birth,
she cannot endure. Either of the topics renews
her woe. Her abler Helen .stated, on -ner exami
nation the other day, that Augusta had been ill for
somoweeks before she left home; she mentioned
typhus fever as the cause of her iUttesd.. Her ner
vous system seems overthrown, and she is really an
object for commiseration. She left Bond street on
Monday afternoon, before the sham confinement,
and declares she will never return. Filial affec
tion may.have induced her to cling to her mother
and support her, even to her soul’s jeopardy; but
that was when the rest of the world was arrayed
against her mother. • Who can blame her for that?
But against this new contemplated fraud aha seems
to have determinedly planted herself, and when
her mother persisted in her Wicked 1 resolve, she
abandoned her, very properly, to her fate; Augusta
remains with her aunt, a very respectable married
lady on Lexington avenue, hot even there 1 her
wretched destiny pursues her, for her presence In
a family brings upon 4 the very unpleasant re
gards of the public.
Ma. Eckei,.—Mr. l Eekel, about whom so much
interest gathered duripg. the opening scenes of the
Burdell tragedy, is now in the city. pnrsuing his
ordinary business, and Seemingly taking' little in
terst in the last developments in this extraordinary
case. But his fripnds feel - assured that every sus
picion of his complicity in the murder is cleared
away by the rdcenf disclosures. The glaring fraud
of the desperate woman with whose name andcrimes
he had beon associated, has turned speculation Into
a new channel in search of accessories to the foul
deed.-' Nof isifcat all improbable that before the
present investigation is concluded speculation will
be changed into certainty on that head. >
The SubrogaSe’s Decision on Mrs. Cunning
ham's impreftabn seems to exist
that the decision of the ,Surrogate cm the.dotation
of granting administration to Mrs.. Cunningham
upon' the estate of Dr. ‘ Bdhlell may be affected by
the recent ■erpltaiofrof her plot to produce afalse
heir.' It is natural ; enough that such. an. ide*,
should be entertained by those,who are. unac
quainted with theirhles which govern Judicial pro-',
ceedinw, and wlth'the intelligent, iJonsistent, aiid'
faithful adherenoe to those rules which charad
terire Mr.Bradford.'Jßut the truth is, that hll
that'fataedf plot'and boonterplotywhich has fol-‘
.lowed. upon .the Bond street tragedy,iSiasfar as
the Surrogate is concerned, as if, it, had. never, hap
pened. No circumatancoof it‘is before Mm:' It
is. not in the testimony in' the dase' ‘oh 'Which
he has to decide. > His judgment must be based.on
the evidence, .which, has been submitted, to'him
through the forms of judtcfalproof: The only way in,
which he would be:entitled-to considerianynfew
fact coming to light )&inee ; ti\e was .closed,
would be by its regular introduction after an appH
cation should bo-made by thb party interested, and
granted by*himself, to,open.the base.for thatptu
pose. This has not been done.. Indeed, Mr, Til
den, counsel for the Burdfell 1 beirs/wakso' perwh’
.the tiorrogato’s■ deoislon wouldbedri'theiffavbr,'
that although h© knew, early in duly, that this;
attempt, to get up an .heir to the
would be made'by Mrs. Cunningham,' *■ yet he
refused, to apply to the Surrogate; to' get him to
. open .the, case to admit proof of the. fact of said
attempt ny’ Mrs. Cunningham. He'was willing,*
‘he said, to let the'case rest • entirely upon’ £he evi
dence produced before the Surrogate on the.trial.
;In r the same‘spirit .the California commission,
which' would have caused ‘sotae months 'delay, was
'indefinitely postponed. As the general ana pru
dential rule is to exhaust all relevant and material
Evidence, this shows greater confidence in the result
! than would be usually justifiable. ' ‘ ‘ 1 '
Although the decision of the Surrogate has not
been announced, and no intimation has been made of
what it is likely to be, It is by no means to be assumed
that he has not long once arrived 'at'a conclusion.
The argument of. counsel was finished on the -2d
of July. Whatever, impression Mr. Bradford may
’ have had of the trial, or oh the argument, it is well
known to be his habit to look over the whole testi
mony,before committing h inself to an opinion; and
in a case the most extraordinary that has ever come
'into' his court, or perhaps in any other, he would
naturally doeni it proper to write out the grounds
of his ( decision. There does not seem to be any
other reason for the delay in promulgating the re
sult to which it is understood be' came to long be
fore .tile recent developments.* He stated shortly
after the close of the case that he had, come to,a
decision upon it. ( When the counsel bad closed
their argument she gavwthemjpermission to' hand
in any more points or written arguments that they
might desire to, remarking at the same time, “I
do not moan to Say that I'have rt6t'made'np'my
mind, but it is subject to a review of the testimony: ’’
This indicates pretty clearly that h\s mind was
then made' up, and h|s constant admission, .ever
since, that his mind was fn&de'upto his decision,
implies .that of the evidence,has not
changed it. , . , {
Since the late*criminal attempt has been made
by Mi* Cunningham,' he has told- several 'persons
that this would notaffeet his ■ decision do. the least
—that his mind had .been made up for sometime.
This mifcht indicate indirectly, though pretty clear
ly, how his mind is.madeup. i Indeed, those who
know him.,best, and his manner of weighing and
deciding upon evidence,* are unanimously or the
‘opinion, it will be against Mrs. Cunningham. His
omission to send out the California eommiwioa fan*-
filies that he considered the case sufficiently esfab*
ished otie way or the other, and as theapplication
for said commission was made by'the defendants,
.it may be which way he considered, the
oase established. There are ether collateral facta
that go to show that his decision will be against
Mrs. Cunningham’s application, hnd one that will
tire publio satisfaction; and be sustained by the
igher courts of law if it should be appealed from.
His decision may be expected in the course of two
or three weeks. *
Her Confidence in a Favorable Decision—
Re-furnishing the House.—Whatever doubts
othora may hare entertained as to her likelihood
of haring the Surrogate’s decision in'her fovor,
she herself appeared to have entertained none.
She was sanguine in her belief that the marriage
would have been affirmed. She hftd'oven gofle u>
thp. expense of having the house No. 31 Bond street
re-furnished at very considerable cost—whether
on risk or not we cannot say. She is said to have
assorted, however, that since the death of Dr,
Burdell she has defrayed all the enormous ex
penses to which she was subjected by litigation
and otherwise, and only borrowed on one occasion
$l5. To a person who suggested to her that it was
hardly prudent in her to go to the expense of re
furnishing tho' house before the rendering of the
Surrogates decision,* she replied that she was go
ing to bo confined iu five weeks, and was not go
ing to let her baby be born on bare boards.
Important from tne Prairies—Reported Murder
of Surveying Parties.
Tho Kansas oity Enterprise, of August Ist, says:
“ Letters were received at Leoompton on the 35th
ult., which state that the Choyenne or Sioux In
dians, or both, had attacked several of the United
States,surveying parties /in tho, southwest por
tion of Nebraska, and murdered a number of the
“The report is, that five of Cant. Caldwell’s,
four of Cant. Berry's, and all of Col. Manner’s
party, including the latter, had been murdered.
We bavebebn unable to learn particulars.
“ It is the opinion of-those hast acquainted with
tho country in whioh these parties were, and the
region of country {reversed by the various tribes
of Indians, that if these massacres have occurred,
they were committed by tho Pawnees, and charged
on the others to escape punishment. This, also,
is the opinion of the Surveyor General, now in
our oity, who States that the lands upon which
the surveyors were at work have always been
claimed by the Pawnees, and that they have ever
manifested gr'ea{ displeasure at their survey by the
government.” - •
Pennsylvania.—James B. Sansom, Esq., of the
Fulton Democrat, has been nominated for the
Legislature. Mr. S., two years ago, was eleoted
of tho Pennsylvania Legislature
Ho ia highly spoken of as a sound, practical man,
and an unswerving Democrat.
Kentucky.—The Democrats havo earned one
member of Congress in the Eighth District, and
six members of tho Legislature.
The Louisville Conner of Thursday says :—“We
publish, this morning, a list of eleven Democrats
and four Americans, elected to the Senate, and
fifty Democrats and twenty-seven Americans,
eleoted to tho House of Representatives. The
oountios jot to hear from will probably elect three
Democrats and two Americans to the State Senate,
and nino Democrats and thirteen Americans to the
Legislature. Tho Demobratio majority in the
lower branch of the Legislature will be from fifteen
to twenty.”
So far as heard from in Kentucky, the Demo
crats have eleoted fifty memborsof the House of
Representatives to tho Know-Nothings’ twonty
sevon. To the State Senate, tho Democrats have
chosen eleven members, and the Know-Nothings
four. For Congress, seven Democrats are elected,
certain, to two Americans, and there is one, Tal
bot, in doubt.
Tim Kentucky Legislature.—The Cincinnati
Gazette, in speaking of the political complexion
of the Legislature of Kentucky, say* • —Next
December, at Frankfort, in our sister State, will
bo witnessed an event, the like of whioh has
never been seen by the present generation. It is
the assemblage there of a Legislature that con
tains a Democratic majority, u e should have to
go back to 1828 or 1828 to witness a similar phe
nomenon. The Democrats havo, since'that time,
had the Governor and half the delegation imCon
fress, but never the Legislature. The oppdation
ad a permanent end enduring ascendency in that
body thut never could be shaken in the least.
Truly, with the loss of that body the sceptre has
departed from Judah, and a new era has dawned
upon Kentucky. She is in the Democratic column
henceforth as firmly as Virginia.
Death op Hon, H. L. Turney.—We are pained

the necessity of every inquirer after the truth,
placing himself in tho position of an humble re

true believers: for it was a well known arid beau-
tiful truth, that little children, in coming to parents
for information, did so with the most implicit con

shrely, the father is not removed higher above his
son than is God above his children; and hence the
reasonableness of' his injunction for all men to
cbme unto him “with a heart believing onto righte

great fountain of universal truth, and a life reflect
ing in its every action the love we feel to tb« Au

• A Train for Salt Lake There, is now
fitting out at Atchison, K. T.. we see by the Squat
ter Sovereign of the Ist inst, one of the largest of
those caravans or “ trains” by whioh the com
merce between the States and the Great Salt Lake
Valiey is carried. The train will consist of seven
ty-three wagons, eight hundred and seventy-six
oxen, and ninety men. It will be laden with one
hundred and forty tons of assorted merchandise,
juiapted to the Salt Lake trade. Some idea of the
immense value of the goods which will be carried,
by this train may possibly be had, when we state
that the freight alone upon them from here to Salt
Lake will exceed $40,000. The wagons are now
being loaded at the warehouse of £. C. Wolfolk,
ahd it is surprising to see the amount of goods that
cin be stowed away in one of these “ prairie
scows.” The wagons are all got up in tne old
style, with broad tire, stout wood and iron work,
dee beds, painted blue, with bows, and covered
with canvass, so as completely to protect tho goods
from rains or storms. The “ motive power” of each
wagon will be six yokes of oxen, bat a number of
extra yokes will be taken along to guard against
accidents, or to assist in difficult places. This train
will start today or Monday next, and it will re
quire from sixty to ninety days to make the trip,
the length of time depending in some measure upon
the grass, the state of the roads. Ac. When the
train has arrived at Salt Lake, and discharged its
freights, the cattle and wagons will be sold out, and
the men who accompany it will either remain ia
the Territory, proceed to California, or return to
“ the States’' in the Spring.
Quarter Sessions—Judge Allison.— Bail Re
duetd.—An application was made to tho Court on
Saturday morning to reduce the bail in the case of
the Commonwealth vs. John and G-abnei Eaxif.
It appeared by the statement of counsel for the de
fendant, that Alderman Ogle, before whom the case
was heard, had imposed the ludicrous bail of $25 -
000 upon those two defentantr, although it was not
charged that the defendants jiad obtained more
than $6,000 worth of goods. '
Judge Allison said: Although he had not heard
all the facts, that the bail-demanded was exces
sive, that it should be reduced to $5 000 upon each
of the charges, $lO,OOO in all. This practice of
excessive bail is very reprehensible, and
* Persecuting spirit. It may increase the
utmeuUy of obtaining bail, but will ’have no effect
before a Court of justice. Bail wa3 not entered in
thisoaso before the rising of the Court.
In the Case of the Commonseealtk vs. Anna
Master, 6fC , Judge Parsons concluded his sum
ming up, ana was followed by Mr. Edgar E. Pettit,
in an elegant and powerful argument for the de
fendants, whioh appeared to have due weight with
the Judge Allison charged very impartially,
and elucidated the principles of law involved in
the case with great dearness and precision. His
charge was clearly favorable to the defendants.
The jury retired about 2 o’clock, and will bring in
a sealed verdict thH morning- Judge Parson* for
Commonwealth; Edgar E. Pettit for defendants.
