'Upon this the Boston Courier, a promi

edly and frankly:
'Js' this a denial of the plot? Or is it a
mere trick to lead the public to infer that
the-letter of J. H. Pleasants, was nothing
more than a harmless attempt to impose on
the editor of the Inquirer! Take either
supposition, and the IVltig will reap but
little honor for patriotism or credit for wit.
if Mr. Yleasants wrote the letter making
an apOrently authentic statement of a plot
to carry off the President of the U. States,
solely with the view to ti dile with the in
tellect of his cot emporary Mr. Ritchie, and
the Wing puhlishe3 it to be a hoax, no de
gree of contempt can be too heavy to lay
upon the heads of such shameless black
guards. _ But Mr. Pleasants has not yet
pronounced the letter a fiction, or given
any intimation that the plot was not a gen
wine plot. The paragraph, quoted above,
from the Whig, does not pronounce t'7,e
letter a hoax. If Mr. Pleasants, arid the
editor of the Whig, have any regard for
truth, honor, or decency, they wili not at.

'That prince of beef steaks and oysters,
the keeper of the 'Verandah,' in William

give out a time check. or a check dated a

The big R broker, who keeps a supply (IP

passion by confidently informing the bro

Recision in Bankruptcy.
Judge STORY recently delivered an ela
borate opinion in a case , wh ere the ap
plicant for the benefit of the Bankrupt law,
owed debts in a fiduciary capacity; the pur
port of which is— .
1. Thatfiduciary debts are proveable
under the proceedings in • bankruptcy, e
qually with the other debts,at the creditor's
2. That if the fiduciary creditor elects
to come in and. prove his debt, and to take
a dividend, he isbarred Of all other remedy
therefor, except out of the assets.
3. Tkat fiduciary debts not proved under
the proceedings in bankruptcy are not extin
guished by a discharge and certificate under
4. That if the petitioner has, after the
passage of this act, applied trust funds to
his private use, he is denied any discharge
or certificate, as to all his debts whatsoever
—not only such as are fiduciary, but all
Therefore, misapplication of fiduciary
funds before the passage of the act, de
prives the party of all right to a discharge
from them on ly—misapplication after the
passage of the act deprives him of all

Dr H. P. Gatchell, of Cincinnati, has ar

Neurology, which were first discoveted
by Dr. Buchanan, of Louisville. He has
handed 'us a pamphlet giving an account
of Dr. B's experiments, which /ye have
not been able to peruse as yet. We were,
however, present when Dr. G. made same
experiments; and were at once convinced
that the person upon whom he operated
was a most accomplished actor, or that the
science was surprising in its results. We
have little reason to suppose we were im•
posed upon, and consider the subject well
worthy of investigation. Dr. G. is now
giving a course of private lectures in this
city, and we presume he will give a course
in public before he leaves.

ANOTHER SUICIDE BY A YOUNG FEMALE BY
THRowING HERSELF FROM THE MONUMENT.
—On Friday morning, about half past ten
o'clock, a young woman entered the door
at the font of the Monument. and Jenkins
the keeper, addressed himself to her, ask
ing if she wished to ascend. To this she
answered in a perfectly collected manner,
'Yes, if you please,' and paying the ad
mission fee. 6d. proceeded up the stair
ft will. he recollected, that eve' since
the melancholy suicide of Margaret Boyce,
and that of the youth who destr yed him
self. in the same frightful manner, a few
weeks afterwards, the City Lands Commit
tee have directed that one man should al
ways he on guard in the gallery at the top;
and two persons are appointed, one for
morning and the other for afternoon duty
Nathaniel Fletcher was the person in at
tendance on Friday moaning, and from•
his statement, it appears that, on the de
ce'as'ed arriving at the top of the staircase,
he met her and walked twice or three times
round the pillar in her company, pointing
opt the different objects of interest in the
vicinity. His attention being attracted for
a few moments, he suddenly missed her,
and went a few steps down the staircase
t' see if she had descended..
Meantime, the wretched woman had,
during the momentary absence of Fletcher
on the east side of the pillar, clambered o
ver the railing on the west, and precipita—
ted herself into Fish street hill. The bo
dy fell in the road nearly twelve feet from
the curb, frightfully mutilated and bleed
ing from the ears and hack of the head.
In falling, her body turned completely
round, and directly after struck against
the carved stone dragon at the northwest
corner, which, it will be remembered,.nro
jects out some distance at a height of about
fifty feet from the base of the pillar, bound
ing thence into the road, a fishmonger's
cat t which was passing at the time close to
the curb, with a man driving, just escap—
ing the falling body, some portion of the
deceased's clothes touching the man's head
and rendering his escape from instant death
No certain clue to her identity was gain
ed till nearly seven o'clock, when a gen
tleman named Rowbottom, residing at No.
9, Buttisland street. Hexton,lto bad
heard of ch.. accident, came down to view
Coe body, and immediately recognised her
as his servant. Her name is Jane Coo
per, and she had been missing from her
situation since Thursday morning. Both
legs had sustained a compnand fracture.
and the feet were also dislocated. The
left shoulder was almost torn from the
bl,ly, and the back of the skull presented
a frightful picture,
Vert of Vitolturgh.
