THE TIMES Kossuth, Itia now said, will go from Cincinnati to St. -Louia, and thence to New Orleans. Ho will then Savanah, and Charleston, and re- turn to New York. What chance have our In- dianapolis friends of making donkeys of them- selves over him? He now thinks he will not leave this country until some time in April, unless movements in Europe imperatively demand an earlier depart- ure. What these movements" are expected to be, of which wo have heard so much, wo are jiot informed. 'Upon his first arrival, ho supposed these an- ticipated "movements" would not permit him to iremain with us longer than the first of the pres- ent month, but ho had better remain with us as long as he can add to tho contents of his pocket by speculating upon the credulity of the free and the The Courts in California.

The counsel opposed to, me Gen. -Anderson, a fiue-loofcing old gentleman, was vmed with a large bowie knife, that hii'ng like a broad sword .by his side, and I was perhaps the only unarmed man in that body.

Tho happiness of every individual is increased or diminished by habits acquired in early There is nothing so potont as custom onco estab- lished. All persona of experience know how :iard it is to east off tho shackles of habit to which they.had long conformed. Tho formation of correct habits, then, is a matter worthy the most studious care, and most intense anxiety. How many, who might have been ornaments to community and a blessing to their country, now grovel in tho gloom of minds polluted, and stamped with tho seal of vice conforming to vicious practices. All good men deplore the progress of immorality- They mt forth vigorous efforts to stay its evil conse- quences, yet their main artillery is directed a- gainst it as. found in adult persons, after they lavo grown.old in sin, and hardened in iniquity. To arrest an evil, tho blow must be aimed at its It mnst be checked in its incipient career, .likewise to promote moral principles, and ad- vance tho cause of virtue, tho growth of inordi- nate desires, and evil propensities must bo re- strained as they begin to bo developed in child- hood. This must mainly bo tho work of From the want of moral culture, and that regard for truth which parents only can inculcate, chil- dren early learn to worship at tho shrine of hu- man debasement, and following, as life advances, their misdirected inclina'tibns, plunge into the abyss of infamy. The infant mind is a trackless soil upon which may bo sown the seeds of virtue and truth, which will grow and ripen into usefulness, exerting a salutary influence on all around or tho seeds of moral corruption, germinating misery and woe. Early impressions arc always lasting. -They never become erased. They arc the first in- structions received in the days of childhood, and form tho basis of the mental, and moral odifico that every individual must erect. It is important, then, that the first develop- ment of tho youthful-fancy bo eagerly watched, and the avenues to the mind be strictly guarded against the intrusion of improper sentiments, and the baneful effects of improper teachings. Pa- rents admit those facts, yet how few discharge their duty faithfully to their offspring. They either permit their children to grow up without mental or moral training, or .rclyfupon those to whom they are committed for instruction. .This would all be well, did they but co-opcrato. with the toach'er in his labors, and appreciate his ef- forts to lay the foundation of usefulness and hap- piness in after life.

Purity of motive, and rectitude of intention, found no place within his breast. Within his bosom a flame, was kindled which the blood of millions eould not quench. This was the result of pre- cept taught him in his childhood days. The latter was. early instructed in- the midst of domestic purity, led by th6 hand of piety, and instructed in. the word of life. A strict regard for truth and justice was the first lesson impres- sed upon his infant ho held sacred to tho end of life- Contrast the achievements of these two per- sonages.

He had obtain- ed permission for Kossuih to land in Marseilles, against tho wishes of tho Government at I'aris: but upon certain conditions, it wi'I bo seen, which Kossutli and his parly violated. Tho latter an- nouncing the detcrininaiion of tho French Gov- ernment not to allow Kossuth to pass through France was sent to the Hungarian by tho Con- sul, who to the great mortification of tho latter answered it by an appeal to tho public through one of tho most ultra of the newspapers. It was a br tod' other light. Tho letter.sent by Ihe Consul was though .an official, not. a'pu'blic itwaa sent confidentially and for Kossuth's private pe- rusal only: but only this letter but an in- flammatory address to tho French people, and in addition to this the letter to tho Consul from Kos- suth, (the most unfortunate ho ever ap- pears upon tho heels of this personal and respect- ful notification of an official fact.

Hodge and reply lo the Letter of Kostuih. [Correspondence ot the Express.] 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 Govurnment and President, almost denouncing it, and said it and the Presided! did not repre- sent tho nation, and dated his cominunicatioii on board the American frigate. It Is unnecessary to argue on the gross impropriety of such pro- ceeding, and that it was comriiitting the flag and the country. -Capt. Long wrote to Mr. Hbdgo and begged he would request M. Kossutli to dis- continue such publications, as it was compro- 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 commitling both him (the Consul) and Ihe flag. This request was communicated to M. Kossuth by Capt. Long, and is tho cause of M. Kossutli's retendod.offence against Mr. Hodge. Itslio'd 3 observed, that the population of Marseilles. ias always been noted for its excitable materials nd a large body of the most ultra hero were congregated in the city many thous- ands of the Italian refugees, some of them men of desperate characters and fortunes, forming al- ngcther a perfect magazine of explosive matari- which a spark might have ignited, and led to the most lamentable consequences'.

The following is the verdict and the closing scene.- At the hour appointed for tho opening of the Court, the jurors were in attendance, (with their sealed punctually.

She looked anxious, and paltr than wo had before seen her, and took her usual scat, lacing- the jury. Tho Clerk of tho Court called tho names of the jury, to which tho usual response was given, and then asked the Foreman if they had agreed upon their verdict. Mr. ili-ec-h replied, 'we and liuuded the Clerk a written verdict, which he gave the Chief Justice, who protended to u- I judgement, either furor airainst tho principles -Mr. lirriiton on Hie Hrvrjitton ol" Kossutb.

One of the conditions exacted )y the Prefect was, that they should tilt come on- shore in. citizen's (tress, without distinctive niarA: to attract .attention. The conditions were viola- tod by all tho parties. M. K. it is true, did not land in his uniform, but still he wore a. distin- guishing mark on his dress which .at once at- tracted attention, and his followers came in full uniform, and the whole city was in an The garrison was called out under arms, and du- 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 the- T refect violated, and- an .order was issued by the authorities to forbid the parties from again landing, aud tho Prefect said if they voilated the order ho would arrest them. In this country, we cannot appreciato tho risk and danger of extensive scenes of bloodshed, un- der the circumstances such as these, and with such population, and-how little was necessary to produce tho most deplorable results. If such a result had occurred, and a collision taken place between a.desperate populalion, 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 Miss- issippi, but also upon.our Government, and might well have endangered the peaceful relations of the two countries; When tho Consul received tho letter of tiio 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, cop- ied it and sent it, with an inflammatory address for publication to the Socialist paper. M. K. c- von attemps to justify this gross breach of confi- dence, of publishing an official letter addressee to another person, and which had been sent to him merely for his perusal; but no right mindci and honorable man will, for a moment admit the propriety ot" it. Under these causes of irritation, Mr. II. ap- pears to have acted with the greatest moderation and forbearance, and to have done nothing more than send a respectful note to Capt. Long, (ac- 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 uudcr the protection of the American flag.

And they find that alimony be allowed tho ilaintiff to the amount of Three Thousand dol- ars per year! The rendition of the verdict of the jury was "bllowod by demonstrations of approbation and disapproval by tho auditory, which was, as usual :erv large. Efforts were commonly by the officers of the Court to re- iress those expressions, but they could only bo art-ally restrained. Common through- itit Sunday, had anticipated what the verdict vould be, and therefore it was, perhaps, that leiUier of the parties nor their counsel seemed unprepared for the result. Mr. Van Burcn, after tho first effervescence of feeling had passed off, rose and suggested to the Court that there had been several exceptions taken.to His Honor's rulling, in the course oi'the trial, asked when the Court .wouhl hear them, with reference to the making up of a case for the full Court. A conversation ensued- between tho counsel .nd tho Court on this point, the result of which was that.tho Chief Justice appointed Tuesday at 10 o'clock, at Chambers, to hear the motion of tho defendant's counsel with regard to tho pro- >oscd 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 Burcn, Esq., meanwhile left the Court-room, and was followed by several of his They were received upon leaving the building with hearty cheeers by others who were gath- ered around the doors, and entering .a carriage together, they drove off amidst the warm and protracted applause of their friends many, uf whom followed the carriage, .for a considerable distance, shnutiiiz 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 cxcitcmt, 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, ar.d'made their exil at the door of the build- ing, fronting on Chamber street. As soon as they appeared, that portion of the crowd which caught the first view-of them began to cheer and this brought to the spot those who were ox- The lady and her counsel crossed to tho nortli side of Chamber St., and walked into Broadway, and so over to her present residence, the House, followed by the applauding crowd, who at tho corner of Chamber street and Broadway made a pause, aud ijavc warm cheers for Mrs Forrest, and Mr. O'Conor.

Linn had some freight. to take on ut ricksburg, which would occupy perhaps half an ours lime.

The gentlowau, in registering their names on akiii'r state rooms, wrote his down G. I. Putnam, fngton, Vermont, and the lady's Jessy Pon- .ergast, Yieksburg. Not' after.tho boat under way, Mr. Putnam called tho clerk, Jr. George Linn, out upon the guards, and ask- 'd him if there was a minister on board, commu- licating to him at the same time, confidentially, ho fact that he was on a matrimonial runaway excursion, and ho was desirous of having the iiarriago eermony performed at onco, for fear of 'CSllltS. It so happened that tho Rev. Mr. Wilson tlakcly, of Holly Springs, a member of tho Church South, was on board, on his way to at- .cnd a Convention at Nashville, to whom tho rcutleman, on oscertaiuing the fact, made iriime- lialo application, stating the circumstanced under which he was placed, and begging that ho would mite lliem in thu bonds of wedlock. Tho Rev. uilcman's reply to tho request was such as ra- i..jr to dampen iiis hopes. Ho demurred in con- scn.il onto of an existing law in Mississippi which requires a non resident to give security in the sum of for tho maintainancc of his wife.

Tho following telegraphic despatch appeared; in tho New York journals: TBE ARCTIC OFT NEWPORT NEHTORT, Jan 20th, 3 P. M.

Cass and the Presidency, This' gentleman is so anxious to bo Iho Demo- cratic candidate for the Presidency, that ho is willing to mount any hobby that he thinks may carry him to tho White Houso. Tho Washing- ton correspondent of tiio Philadelphia North A- mcrican gives tho following as his last effort to get on a hobby-horse. One of the last and most amusing of the Pres- idential move? was made by Gun. Cass yoster- dav, in a resolution which ho presented to tho Senate, in tho following words. Hcsotved, That whilo the people of tho United Slates sympathize with all nations who are stri- ving to establish free governments, yet they re- cognize tho great principle of tho ol'tho law of nations, which assumes to each of them the right to manage its own internal affairs in its own way and to establish, alter'or abolish its government, at pleasure, without the interference of any other power. And they havo not seen, nor could, they again see, without deep the viola- tion of this principles of national indepedonco. In plain this resolution is inltmdod aa a. snrt of half way houso between tho speech which Gen. Cess mado in tho Senate against intervention, and hedging speeches which he' afterwards mado at the two iKossuth dinners. It is qnito evident that tho Senator from Michi- gan did not inhale the Court atmosphere of Par- is to no purpose during tho days of Lous Philippe, for if ho learnt nothing else, he at least acquired a knowledge of Talleyrand's.maxim, that words wero given to conceal ideas. This proposi- tion is but another edition of tho Nicholson let- ter, a janus-faccd sort of affair which may bo mado to mean everything and nothing, as occasion may require. It is for and against intervention in tho same breath, so as to servo the latitudes of of Ohio and Mississippi atone and the samo lime. It reads as well backwards as forwards; and altogether is a political nondescript, which would puzzle a college of -Virginia abstrac- tionists.
