to regret the part which tho overofficious friends of the former have acted in forcing this to light Hodge and reply lo the Letter of ot the WASHINGTON Jan 27 Tho assertion of the Times that Mr Hodge was in the first instance opposed to sending a ship of war for Kossuth is entirely gratuitous M Kossuth made ah inflammatory address to the people of Marseilles which ho published in one of the Red Republican ultra Socialist papers in which he spoke disrespectfully of tho French and President almost denouncing it and said it and the did not sent tho nation and dated his on board the American frigate It Is unnecessary to argue on the gross impropriety of such and that it was the flag and the country Long wrote to Mr and begged he would request M to dis- continue such publications as it was mising tho flag Mr Hodgo did not write to M Kossuth but to Capt Long and re- quested the latter lo request M K to abstain from further publications of the kind as it was both him the Consul and flag This request was communicated to M Kossuth by Capt Long and is tho cause of M against Mr Hodge 3 observed that the population of Marseilles ias always been noted for its excitable materials nd a large

charged with a firmness and fury that never was surpassed by any of Napoleon's famed Marshals At tho head of his regiment ho continued to ad- ance until not exceeding 25 rods from ig M had prepared own honse or tbo reception of Kossuth and his immediate amily and bv his personal application and ence obtained from the Prefect permission for lira to land contrary to the instructions from He then applied for a liko permission for his which after some discussion was all pledging himself sonally that they would not attempt to create any excitement and would conduct themselves on shore so as to give no cause uf complaint lo he authorities One of the conditions exacted y the Prefect was that they should tilt come on- shore in citizen's tress without distinctive to attract attention The conditions were tod by all tho parties M K it is true did not land in his uniform but still he wore a mark on his dress which at once at- attention and his followers came in full uniform and the whole city was in an The garrison was called out under arms and whole of the time the troops wero kept constantly on the alert The Consul had the mortification to see the pledge he had solemnly made lo T refect violated an order was issued by the authorities to forbid the parties from again landing aud tho Prefect said if they the order ho would arrest them In this country we cannot tho risk and danger of extensive scenes of bloodshed un- der the circumstances such as these and with such population little was necessary to produce tho most deplorable results If such a result had occurred and a collision taken place between and eight or ten thousand troops forming the garrison what a dreadful responsibility would rested not on- ly upon the conductor tho Captain of the but also Government and might well have endangered the peaceful relations of the two countries When tho Consul received tho letter of Prefect communicating tho determinations of tho French Government not to allow Kossuth to pass through France Mr H sent the letter to M K for his perusal Vvho with gross impropriety ied it and sent it with an inflammatory address for publication to the Socialist paper M K c- von to justify this gross breach of dence of publishing an official letter addressee to another person and which had been sent to him merely for his perusal but no right and honorable man will for a moment admit the propriety ot it Under these causes of irritation Mr II pears to have acted with the greatest moderation and forbearance and to have done nothing more than send a respectful note to Capt Long tually written at the instance of the re- questing him not to make further publications in a violent and unscrupulous paper in opposition to tho Government whilo ho K was the protection of the American flag Mr as described in a letter from an officer of high is a man perfectly self-willed and ungovernable and ho certainly so exhibited him sell whilst on board the frigate As to his con- duct he arrived in

swer to it they find in the affirmative on the first second third fourth sixth and seventh questions if fact specified in tho order of Doc 1850 and ill the negative on the fifth question of fact specified in said order And they find that alimony be allowed tho to the amount of Three Thousand ars per The rendition of the verdict of the jury was by demonstrations of approbation and disapproval by tho auditory which was as usual large Efforts were commonly by the officers of the Court to re- iress those expressions but they could only bo restrained Common Sunday had anticipated what the verdict vould be and therefore it was perhaps that of the parties nor their counsel seemed unprepared for the result Mr Van after tho first effervescence of feeling had passed off rose and suggested to the Court that there had been several exceptions His Honor's rulling in the course trial asked when the Court hear them with reference to the making up of a case for the full Court A conversation between tho counsel nd tho Court on this point the result of which was Chief Justice appointed Tuesday at 10 o'clock at Chambers to hear the motion of tho defendant's counsel with regard to tho stay of proceedings The Court was then adjourned Mrs Forrest then retired to the ante-room cf the Court and was immediately waited on by several gentlemen eminent in judical legal and civil position who congratulated her upon the re- sult of the painful ordeal through which slip had successfully passed Mr Forrest accompanied by his counsel John Van Esq meanwhile left the and was followed by several

their friends many uf whom followed the carriage for a considerable distance alternately three cheers for Edwin and three cheers for John Van But a large crowd still remained in the Park and surrounded both the front and rear doors o the building Thero were evidently two parties in tho and this fact tho sequel proved The Jury soon after came forth in a body or nearly so and were received with applause mingled with hissing and in a very few moments more Mrs Forrest leaning on the arm of her counsel Charles O'Conor Esq left the court room their exil at the door of the ing fronting on Chamber street As soon as they appeared that portion of the crowd which caught the first them began to cheer and this brought to the spot those who were The lady and her counsel crossed to tho side of
