Court of Sessions room by that court, in
the trial of Timothy Mount, - for attempt.

office at 3 o'clock, when the 'Coroner in
formed them that there was•no place with •
control suitable in diMensions to
bola the investigation, except the See
lions Court room, and therefore he recom.
mended as adjournment till yesterday af"
ternoon. No additional facts have come
to•light, and the assassination continues
to be involved in mystery.
Several witnesses have been found—a.
T ingong them a colored woman saw the shot
6ffred. She was passing along Leonard
street towards Broadway, and noticed a
'man and woman on the side•vralk—the
man in the act of leaving the woman and
going towards Elm street. As he waived
his band and turned towards the East, she
— saw the woman with something in her
hand, instantly heard the report of the
pistol, Paw the man fall forwards on his
face and the woman ran down toward
Centre street. The colored woman cried
out 'Oh Lord! here is a man shot,' and
hastened up to Broadway. She describes
the dress of the woman, but did not see
her face.

AntimaSouic Organization.
We took occasion yesterday to notice the great
movement among the Antimasons forthe purifica
tion or rebuilding of their party edifice, which has
become sadly dilapidated oflate, by the attempt to
"work into" it a lot of Whig, material. which is
nut thought to be of the soundest. By a further
reference to the proceedings of the meetings in
some of the townships, we see some strange
matters, which we incline to think, are ominous of
defeat to the "..rue.bluo" original Antimasons.—
The Hon. Harmar Denny, for instance, who, al%
though a nominal Antimasan, has not taken an ac'
tire part for years, in any of their exclusive move.
ments, attended the meeting in his township, and
was chosen a (Megan. Now, this might seem to
indicate that Mr. D goes in sincerely for the re
organization of the Antimasonic party: but when
we observe that oce of his colleagues, Mr, G. L
Reis, is ain I son of the firmest kind, we are led
to believe that Mr. Denny meditate. no gma to
hie &aim :sonic brethren, but that he iftletidz, to
thwart their views, by perpetuating the `'n ,ion"
form .d with the Whig, last year, or in other
words to tran.ii r Ewa' to the -whippable" party,

is intended, or li rw things may terminate. hut, if
we were old Antim,sons, we would keep a sharp
eye upon the actions of Mr. D. and his masonic
People will naturally ininire what inducement
Mr. D.nny has to act in such a singular manner?
We can think or no other motive than a desire to
procure a nomination for Congress from the Union I ,
Convention, if ho shall sty:ced in defeating the
attempt to revive antinias ,nry. 'Pine, he might,
perhaps, have done through whir, int3uence, if Mr.
Forward had continued at Washington. But we
think Mr. Forward's chance for a nomination
from a Union Convention, would be far better
than Mr. Denny's. The latter has been forced
to take a part in this organization business, while
Mr. F., owing to his opportune i absence, will, very
luckily for himself,escape the alternative ofmaking
up his mind on the matter, and cannot lose friends
by being compelled to do so. However, we shall
see, today, how far our speculations are correct.

to support President Bayer no longer. This doc

Provisional Government, with a view to abroga

dictum of President Boyer.
'The intention of this new party, as concerted,
was to make a general rising on the 20th of th

of some individuals who revealed the whole plan
to the military authorities, prevented the general
