If they should do so, we hope I President Tyler will veto the repeal law. Lr Jumcc Wilkt?We find in the "Baltimore ClipI per," the following remarks in relation to Justice ^ Wiley. Alter stating that the petit jury found Mr. Wiley gtulty, and recommended him to mercy, the "Clipper" goes on to say, " which mercy will not, we hope, be extended to him except on the condition that h xvill disclose the namesol the r-bbers of the Frederick County Hank. Justice Wiley has figured long and on a large scale, as the agent for rogues, and it no doubt possessed of many secret! worth knowing. Now, as we firmly believe, that a portion of the police of the country has been con nected with the robber-1 for whom Wiley has acted, 1 a full disclosure would be of great service to the public, and give Wiley some claim to the mercy of the Court. If he refuse to do this act of justice, let him sutler the penally which he has netirred " Such are the opinions of many influential persons in Maryland, as set forth in the "Clipper." and such L are alaothe opinions of many persons in this city,not^ withstanding Justice Dloodgood says tliut the l'rovij d?nce ltauk affair was a highly creditable transaction ; and Mr- Wiley owes it to himself and to his friends, who so nobly stood by hitn in the hour of his trial, to make the requisite disclosures- For ourselves we have always looked upon Justice Wiley as k a highly respectable, got I, amiable man, a warm I partisan, and vers valuable to his parly as a politi1 cian?a good shot, a in ti of talent, and possessed of R fine sociable qualities.

The Skhite met at 12 o'clock yes'erdav The i President took the chair, called tin* f*euate to order, i and the oath of office was administered to the Se' tutors eli ct. , The House or Assemm.\ was culled to order at 11 t o'clock, by Mr. l'mnoi.r., the Clerk of the last lfott .e. and the oaths ot office were administered by Chief Justice Nelson. The Hou.-e then proceeded to ballot for SpeakerMr. I. S. Cuatfield, of Otsego, received 9.1 \otes. Mr. George A Simmons, of K?er, received 82 * votes, scattering 2 votes. Mr. CriATrtKLo was the-* conducted to the chair, , and addressed the House in a brief hut very pertinent speech. The Governor's Message was then received ; front which we make the following extracts in rela lion to the leading topics of interest. Alter ipetkitg ot the Lunatic A-yium, a very proper topic to begin w-ith, the Governor speaks of the Geology of the State, the mission to Holland, his disputes with Virginia and Georgia, and then f remarks thus about The Bams. Nineteen association* under the General Banking Law. and five Safely Fund institutions, have b?en closed I recommend that measures be adapted to > replenish the Bank Fund without delay, and that it t be exempted from l ability for private deposties. To guard hereafter against iraudulent excesses of ctrculatic n, I suggest that the Safety Fund Institutions may be required to receive their circulating notes i from the Bank Cornmi sioners, or the Comptroller, j While 1 cannot doubt that you will adept these ?r more suitable measures to sustain the currency and correct abuses in banking, 1 arn sure thut no harsh or injurious spirit will be indulged towards insiitu* 1 tions w hieli, deriving their powers from public grants, i have performed their trusts with general fidelity, and whose stability is intimately counected with the public interests and the general wellare. He then speaks of the reorganization of the Con* gressional Lhstncts, the state ol crime in the State, and expresses himself in favor of abolishing capital punishments- The Heldebarraeh war, Bill Johnson, and McLeod, are all discussed nt a tedious length ; and then makes the following remarks about the Sihooi Fund Question:? It was among my earliest duties to bring to the notice of the Legislature the neglected condition of many thousand children, including a very large proportion of those of immigrant parentage in our great commercial city; a misfortune then supposed to result from groundless prejudices and omissions of parental duty. Especially desirous at the same time not to disturb in any manner the public schools which seemed to be efficiently conducted, although so ni tny for whom they were established w< rc unwilling to ri ceive their instructions 1 suggested, as I thought, in a spirit not inharmonious with our cii vil and religious institutions, that if necessary, it might b" expedient to bring those so excluded from such privileges i.ito schools rendered especially attractive by the sympathies of those to whom lite task el instruction should be confided. It lias since been discovered that the magnitude of the evil was not fully known, and that its causes were very in*- I perfectly understoodIt will be tliown you iu the proper teport. that twenty thousand children in the city of New York, oi suitable ttsje, are not at all instructed in any ot the public schools, w hile the whole number in all the residue of the State, not taught in common schools, does not exceed tiiue thousand. What had been regarded as individual, occasional and accidental prejudice, have proved to be opinions, pervading a large muss,^including at least one religious communion equally with all others entitled to eivil tolerance ?opinions cherished through a period of sixteen years, and ripened into a permanent conscientious distrust of the impartiality of the education given in the public schools. This distrust has been rendered still deeper and more alienating, hy a Buhverslou of pr oiotw civil rights of th< as whose cooacienci i ore 'hus offended. The philanthropy aud patriotism of the present manager* ot the public schools, and their eflicieney in imparting instruction, are cheerfully and gratefully admitted. Nor is it neosary to maintain that ng'-rits thus selected will become unfaithful, or that a system that so jealously excludes popular interfercnce, must ncc-ssarily be unequal in its operation. U is only insisted that the institution, alter a fair and sufficient trial, has failed to gain that broad confidence reposed in the general system of the Stat'*, and indispensable to every scheme ol universal educ ition. The lute eminent Supenntcndant, after exposing the nines? of this public misfortune, and tracing it to the tit ' rcpancy between the local and general systems, suggested a remedy which, although it is not urged to the exeloMMi of ibt other, seems to deserve dispassionate consideration. I submit, therefore, with entire willingness, to approve whatever nJ??;ii<tf n m dy you rniiy propos', the expediency of le-torirjj to the people of the city of New York ?what I ntn sure the people of no other part ot the 1 Stnte would, upon any other consideration, relirtquili?tin education of their children. For this purpose it is only necetsary to vest the control of ihe common schools in a board, to be composed of comtni.iiorerfl .-elected by the people, which board P shall nppor'i n the schools moneys among all the 1 schools including those now existing, which shall be organized and conducted in cifnfi rmitylo its general regulation-- and the laws of the State, in the proi p rtion of the millibar o! pupils in.-tructecj. i It :s not hit botib'ful that the' restoration to the common t-ehoolst f the city, of the simple and equal feature of the common schools ot' the state, would remove every complaint, and bring info the seminaries the ofi prii g of want and misfortune, presented bv a grand jury on a recent occasion, as neglected children ot both sexes, who are f und in hordes ' upon the wltirves and in corners of the streets, Mir- ] rounded by ev.l associations, disturbing the public peace, committing petty depredations and going from bad to worse, until their course terminates in Inch crimes and intmny. k This proposition, to gntlier the young from the s*reels and wharves into the nurseries which the State, solicitous for her security against ignorance, has prepared for them, has some time hern treated 1 as a device to appropriate the school fund te the en' dowruent of seminaries tor teaching lanctiai p? and 1 faiths, thus to p?rp?'tuate the prejudices it seeks to I remove; sometimes ns a scheme fur dividing that precious fund among an hundred j irring sens nod i thus increasing the religious aaunosities it strives to heal; sometimes us a plan to subvert the prevailing religion and introduce one repugnant to the consciences ot Mtr fellow -citizens ; while in truth, it simply proposes, bv enlightening equally the minds of all, to enable them to detect error wherever it may exist, nud to reduce uncongenial masses into - one intelligent, virtuous, harmonious ane happy , people. t Being row relieved from s'l such misconceptions, its presei s the questions whether it is wiser and more hurt an to educate the tfl'-pring of the poor, than to leave them t grow up in ignorance and vice; whether juvenile vice is more e,is ly eradicated by i ourt ot - s.-ion i than by common scnools ; whether pnren' ; h ive a right to he heard concerning the ius'rnction ml instructors of their chddren, and tax * p ?vr- in relation to the expenditures of phblic lnnds; w hether, in a republican government, it ir necissa. rv to inte'xt-e an independent corporation between the people and ihe choolmaster, and whether it is w t" utid j =?) to disfranchise an entire community of all c ntrol over pubic education, rather than suifer p pari to be repr< ser.ted in proportion to it namu b'T-ar.d contrd utions Since such considerations are now involvi d, w hat h s hnhrito been discuss* fd is a question of benevolence end of universal s education, li t s became ore of tqnal civil rights, r'1 ligious toleran und liberty of conscience The ft illov >g arc the only other paragraph* ol '1 interest worth quoting (rotn the ine.-uge :?

Since the work* were undertaken, the rate of interest demanded upon loan* to the State has advanced from fire to about seven per cent. Prudence, under such circumstance*, eounscla moderation?yet the value of money has not increased as much as the ?,rice of labor and subsistence have ta.len?and it would certainly be the worst of all economy to discontinue enterprises so important for a reason so inadequate, or to sacrifice, in dclavs and uiore than the additional cost resulting from the enhanced rate of interest. While we ought. therefore, to pursue the undertakings cautiously, and even ut some apparent although unreal sacrifice, we are, nevertheless, required to put forth every effort to restore our public stocks to their former value. Such efforts, however, would prove unavailing, if the caHses of the evil were m sunderstood We are in competition with oil e'Mutes and countries in borrowing money. The securities of other nations are not depreciated, while those of our sister states, whether they owe Jets or more, are reduced none less than our own, some 3o, 10 50, 60and 70. and even SO percent. Tlie Federal Governme it, which has once paid absolutely a debt of $ 189,000,900, and which now owes nothing, is unable at the sane ta'e of intereM we offer, to i b uin a loan for three years, of an amountequal to only half a year's revenues Isit true then that the depreciation of our stocks has resulted from the greatness of our debt, or from the magnitude of our undertakings, or from any tiscal unsoundness or error ! < >n the contrary, it is apparent, that our M inks are depressed by some general cau.e affecting all gov.-mine ntal securities. ? * * * ? Hut although the c iu-es affecting our public securities beyond the reach of direct efforts, wc can nevertheless mitigate the evil and contribute to a remedy. It is an urgent duty to fortify our cr? d.t, m.t merely for the purpose of s curing a disctiuiin-?iiun in our favor, but also to furnish un encouraging example to our sist'-r S atcs. I suggest, with a view to this purpose, a rigid adherence, under all circuinstai.c 's, to the rft hitherf obaarnd, that the wheie public debt shall not be raised above such an amount as that its interest cannot be paid out of the current surplus revenues of the canals; and to remove all question concerning the fiscal soundness and moral integrity oi the State, 1 recommend that ail lature revenues from the National Domain fdiall be pledged us a Milking fund to the exiingun-lianeut of the pr/.ic.pai of the public debts, annually paying, or providing for tlie payment of a part of ihe principal, and absorbing first the older debts. If 17 millions of dollars are yet required to complete our public works, the system 1 have suggested would in 1855 discharge the whole of onr present or. .1 (..I ;?,lol..-J..... 1 .. i"? .1? . : I auu iiiiuic iuur.i?truijcar'l ?uu imrr mm unit* JtTrtVC us unincumbered annual revenues. if we adopt this, or some mure judicious fit sal system ?if we truly value our resources, und justly appreciate our enterprises, we may prosecute thern diligently and firmly, and With even higher confidence in their perfect success and ir-bounded usefulness than has ever before been entertained. If, moreover, we declare that at no tune, nor under any circumstances, can the States justify a violation of public laith by uuy of our sister States, bat ut the same time yield to those Slatra in peafornung their obligations our sympathy, support, and such nid as is within onr constitutional province; if we stand by those younger, leas wealthy and leas powerful, bu equally patriotic members of the confederacy, in this crisis?a? we know lull well they would stand by us if menaced frotn abroad?we shall aee them rapidly recovering from tn-ir embarrassments, and worthily regaining the confidence of mankindThen eadhslar will be firmly fixed, the clouds now gathering will speedily dispere, and the constellation continue to shed its cheering light upon the way along which the nations of the earth are advancing to constitutional liberty. Elder Kfatp if Hpstof.?The " Boston Mail'' speaks of this evangelist in the following terms.-? One of the principal 'stars'" ia the religious circles in Boston, nt the present time, is the Rev. Elder Knapp, a well known Baptist preacher, who is attructing crowds of hearers, and creating a great sensation ia the putdic mind, wherever he appears. We heard him for the first time, yesterday, st the Rev. .Mr. iS'eale'e church, comer ol Hanover and Union streets. The house was tilled to excess in every port. There wus scarcely a standing place left unoccupied within the walls ; and even the door-ways wcretiowJed with eager listeners. Mr. Knapp took his text, from -3,1 chapter ol Job, 3d . .. n i i,..-... ?i 1 _:-v? i e._ The divcourve, we should think, was u fair specimen oi hu gvnnrul ?t\le of fp.-ulling. ' Mr Knspp, in onr estimation, is an effective, bat not a great pieaebnr. He either has rot bet n well educated, or he cholines to diM egar! the teaching of ih-? reboots Mi* greatest fault if his v ulgarily, to which u * have hel'ora alluded, lie appeals to use coarse language by designs and of choice, not fioni ignorance and necessity. In the discourse which he delivered y?sterday, he said,'- 1 suppose many men would seek God, if they Coald do it secretly?if they could fuck their religion away in some coiner ol the heart, and never show it." Again, lit said, in the- satnn connection. " Meie you are trucking about after religion," lie Speaking of what he called "proud, fashionable, aristocratic, stlf sufficient, worldlyminded christians," he sai' ' their society is not the climate for true christians?nire r.oph'S don't grow- at the North Pole." Of backsliders, hi sai l, "Tin y must turn | light square ohout, and take the kark frarV, or they'll never b.-si d." In another part of his discourse he s<id, "the prodigal did'ut \s ait to get a new suit of clothes, and tlttk up a little before he went to his laths r." Mr. Simpson's Expi.anatiov.?Mr. simpson, the in na 'eri f the Park, has published the following explanation Qtf- Mr. Simrsov 1- gs leave respectfully to nlate ts thu public that hit Utnvht did net tube place on Monday night last, and that his objection t? take a Benefit ou tlia* evening was stated to Md'lle Elssier, and she informed that her appearance was nst to he ronside-ej as on act of lavor, but of justice. Mod'ile Elbler'n services that evening were givi n gratuitously, not as an obligation to Mr. S., but one cf strict justice to remunerate the m anageun nt. in some degree, lor the heavy losses it hud sustained during her unfortunate engagement. To prove this lsct, (includiug the receipts of last evening) the Theatie has sustained a loss of above $2900, white Mad'lle F.Usler has lee- ived i-W. a On one evening the receipts of the house ware not cnougn to yny Maii'llo Elssier and the extra Corps dc Ballet?yet Mad'lle Elssier received her {-600 as usual. Mr. 3 regrets the necessity of entering 'nto this statement, but he has been compelled to the only course left him This is nil that can be desired by'way of explanation?aud we may add, that we are truly sorry for the losses ol Mr. Simpson. The facts stated disclose a most singular state of things in the theatrical world, tlie philosophy of which we shall treat upon hereafter. .

It first propoaed, i about a year ago, and for sonie tunc eacited hut little attention, but it i? now rdopted by all. Since the first of Oetohrr, the mrrohant* generally have ] adhered to th? ir resolutions, and the good effects of I this adh> rence are already apparent. Last summer, as you have learned, we* rcmarkaWj unhealthy ; indeed, a scries of almost uipar alleled misfortunes has tended to cripple this section in its advances in civilization and weaith. First, thryScminole war broke out,which made it extremely hazardous to new settlers Then came the short erop of 1S37, and the decline of prices in this staple neat followed. During this interval, too, j on rill recollect that the CntumereiMl Bank. loe?te<' here,blew up, the President, a Mr Revenson, running off to Texas with all the elf< cts, and loavisg ab. ut SlOd.OttO of its bills in eirrulaMi-n, which ree -Btwcrth one e*nt.

A f fortune had not yet done with the 'ferritin y, tb ollowing season was an exceedingly disastrous om nid the bills of two of our banks, eat of tbe thr. < ell thirty per ceut. This was the Spring of 1K4* nil in the suiuiuer o| that year, our only remaitiin uoneyvd iustitutiou became embarrassed, and it iotas, with those of the other two, fell to fifty cent n the dollar, at which rate they now remain. Th onsequance of the last of these misfortunes wastb utroduction of shinplusters, and the almost mtir jectment of specie, except for postage and tic eminent dues. But fortune had not even tbe one with ua. The succeeding crop, that ia th ist, did not average one third the reasonable ex pec itions of the planter, anil to cap the climax ii larch ami April we bad a freshet that swept awa; i incalculable- amount of properly But the grea 'il had yet to overtake us, in the shape, of th< ellow and congestive fevers. The ravage* ( * not apeak in hyperbole) of these diseases, bavi ten more extensive than those of any plague o; lidemic in the history of such visitations. Tahiti) ie gross population of the Territory, we cannot nee the hrst of June, have lost less than fifteen pel :nt of the white adults. In this city, we lost ont tird ol those who remained for the summer. At Itinl (hp fa>va?r woo J -- - numiu up dt h Hurricane wlnck estroyed several thousand do.lurs worth of proper I have not even yet enumerated all the causei hich have tended to cripple the energies and aste the resources of this unfortunate land. Thoumds of dollars, aye millions 1 may say, have been epended in building ruilriads, which are eithei ifinished, or carried on at a dead loss of fifty pet :nt, (1 mean that the receipts do not pay one ha l lecost of maintaining them in operation,) in buildg cities, which are literally the abodes of the ;ane, wild ducks, deer and alligators ; and in rnaing improvements (1) which will be, a generaon befors they can be applied to any useful puriss. To all the above, add the evils which sprin; om bad legislation, supine administiations of jus ce and political turbulence, und you have a fail ieiure of Floridaas it is in 1841. Thus, you see tiring five years, we have had one Indian war vo short crops, two gales, two floods, four haul ilures, one fire, and one deadly epidemio. Thi ^sequences of all of which have been aggravate! y bad laws, and bad management. However, s< r as human elforts can alleviate our many dis esses, we shall now have relief. The right mm :tuatcd by the right spirit, hnve put their should rs to the wheel, and we are on the eva of a greu (volution. The first movement was the passing the resolutions enclosed. The second is a strong .'termination only to do a cash business.

Thcs< laractcrs are those by which the revolution wil ! effected, and throaghout the territory there ar< try many of them. i-urine present the business is backward, hut imiuenciuo briskly.
