AbuJitlon ot the Liberty of the Preee- -Suppression of the New York Lancet, We ht?f to announce the strange tact to the pub lie, tnut the New Yoke La.scet, establifhed t??r the prarpose of aiding and assisting in the adv ..lc-nnnt of medical science, has been supp essed by an ?>rder of the Court of Chancery. The third cumber, containing its usu:tl quantity and kind of matter, was ready for publication on Saturday last, but we bate been informed by authority, that it it should be published, the publisher is liable- to an immediate attachment and imprisonment, lor a contempt of an ^junction is?*ed ai the instance of Dr. Molt, by the Vice Chancellor of New York- To-morrow is set down for a final decis.on, at which time it will be determined wh-'thcr this induction oa the press shall be finul ami conclusive. This eveut i? probably the first thing of the kind that ever took place in the United States since the revolution of 1776, and the establishment of the present form of government in 17tf7. The immediate came of this abolition ot the liberty of ihe press, is the pretext set forth by Dr. Mott, the Professor of Surgery in the University Medical .School, that the New Yohm Lash et undertook to give very favorable notices of his Lectures without fits consent or approbation, and contrary to his interests and wishes. In the despotic governments of the old world, 111 Austria, Prussia and Turkey, the censorship of the press is established by the government, which wields the sword of the state, for the purpose of protecting itself against the efforts ofihe people to become free and to escape bondage. In New York, a free city in a free country, a like peeivs ot censorship is enforced at the instance ot a medical professor, who wields a faculty like so many slaves, for the purpose of suppressing the inculcation of that species of knowledge that con. duces to human health mid human comfort. And this monstrous?this iinheitrrl.ot'?this ulrnr-inim at. tempt to abolish the freedom of the press 111 maters of mere science, is made ia the face of the very regulations ot the same faculty, giving a general invitation to the medical public to hear them? in the face of the constitution of this Slate, which expressly authorizes everything to be published that is " the truth," and is " published with good motives and for justifiable ends"?and in the face of the constitution of the United States, which expressly provides lha' no law shall be made restraining the liberty of speech or and of the press. To-morrow we shall enter info an analysis of this singular qu stion at length? and shew up to the world the atrocious insolence of a medical faculty, who first,by resolution,invites the medical profession at Urge to hear their lectures Rinluitoualy, and yet have audacity, not only to refuse admittance to l>r. Houston, who has their written order to attend thein?but to give their support to a professor engaged in suppressing a medical periodicaljintended to aid and assist the advancement o! the profession throughout the world. We shall make out a case sutliciently stroug for the Legislature to investigate, autl to repeal the charter of the University. For the present, the New Youk Lancet stands suppressed till to-morrow. The Great Movement In progress In favor of the Repeal of the Bankrupt Law. To morrow (Tuesday,) there will be held a tremendous meeting at the Merchant's Exchange, called by the strongest array of names of solvent and respectable merchants that the city contains. The purpose of this meeting is to take measures to procure the postponing or repeal of the lfankrupt Law, 01 to have it so amended that it shall not conflict with past contracts, or any uf the provisions of the Constitution, This will be one of the most important and interest mg meetings that have taken place in this city for along time past. This isthe first time that the solvent portion of the mercantile classes have come out to defend their rights against the insolvent portionTins movement of the i expectable and solvent portion ot our fellow citizens, draws the line distinctly and completely. We shall now ascertain who really are the solvent und who the insolvent portion of the community ; their names will be before the world ; and we shall thus see the game of each, and watch their strength and numbers. in the notice which the solvent merchants have published for a call of this great meeting, they have awrted merely a general principle. They have expressed a request that Congress would not interfere with all the contracts they have made tor years past, and so completely derange and destroy all their business calculations, and impair and destroy the heretofore inviolable nature of contracts, as guaranteed to them by the ConstitutionAll this is very right just and proper. Congress most certainly has no right to step in as a third party, and di< (atr terms respecting business contracts and arrangements made between merchant and dealer in yr.irs past, and tell the creditor that.he must settle l" his atldi;s according to their dirtum. Ths viawsta.it may be thus taken of these importHl' movements are clear and simple enough in th naelves. And the large and respectable body of n - i who want the Bankrupt Law repealed, confine the uiaelvea 'to two or three strong points ia the en.-e. They consider, (as indeed every one now, at last, scents to consider,) that the present Hanknipt Law contain.- a principle which give the debtor a peremptory and unjust power over the creditor ? Tin* is the retrospective principle, which, in its operation, would compel the creditor to settle with tli- debtor on almost any terms the latter might diets1 . although the result, in some instances might be fraught with almost utter ruin to an honest creditor. Tli ?is what the solvent class consider as a peculiarly a jus; and oppressive feature in the present Bankrupt Law. They contend that this would be gross violation < the constitution, which says that a<> rj pott foftn law can be passed by Congress, hecause the inviolability ot all past contracts shall be fully preserved The advocates for a repeal of the Bankrupt Law, or its postponement, or modification | 'he solvent merchants?have no objection to wxr a iui: anj t"ll; ,il ill' n-HI Ii.ttlKrUpC I ,HW go into openhen, which shall be made to atiect only all I uture c ntracts, bargains, sales, purchases, and general basinet* operation?. Rut they say? and eay with much justice and energy?let the past remain inviolable ; let us be allowed to settle all thoue matters in our own way, as we deem just, and s Mte present laws sanction. All our past contract Wt re entered into uni? r the laws as they then stood, *n as w# Bfiderstood h>in. with the rights guarantf '.l u> us toy the Cons ilution , and in this view of th< inviolability of contracts aud our mutual rights, boh debtor and creditor agreed at the time of making those bargains. And they odd, further, that if th |?rrf??i?t Bankrupt Caw goes into operation, they wi! content its Constitutionality b?fore the Supreme Court of the United States. A oother abjeetionable principle in the present law, in ie view ?f the solvent class, i?, that banks and corporations are not included They wish the law to so m.Khfi"d a? to include all cla-ase*?all corpora' >ns; fa; they think, and think justly, that there ht to be no privileged class in a country and under a overnment like ours And, onijneehonabiy, to iL i Iiob n- tn -ii'L t _ ii% V,* oftvikltfi>/J u.

Tlute are two of the strong points which the solvent i lass desire to see properly atnnded to, and which they will endeavor to get so modified* And indeed the latter view of the subject, as regards o inks and corporations, was the one taken by every speaker at the recent greut anti-repeal meeting, both whigs and locofocos, and is the one which all partiea seem now to be well agreed upon. Before dismissing this subject for to-day, however, it may be well to correct thet.erroueous statement* put forth by the friends of the bankrupts in relation to bankrupt statiatics. Mr. N. P. Tallmadge.whoisnot unfrequently inclined to large overestimates of an exaggerated character, calculates the number of haukruuts in this country to be at the least 500,000; now this is one bankrupt to every fire voters. There were 2,300,000 votes taken at the election of Generul llarriaon, and we may now consider thut there are at least 2,500,000 voters in the country at this time. Indeed, if we take the usual ratio of one voter to every six souls, we should with our population of 18,000,000, have 3,000,000 of voters. Well, even this would make the calculation ofMr Tallmndge's amount to one bankrupt for every six voters. Now, we w ould ask, can this be a lair estimate 1 In this city there may be 40#0 bankrupts and -10,000 solvent persons, out of a population of 300,000, of which -10,000 are voters. Now, this, which is a large estimate, would give but one bankrupt to every ten voters. Following out the estimate in the same ratio, that would give but 250,000 bankrupts for the whole Union ; and this is at least twice as many as there really are. For, after all, the ratio given of this city is an incorrect one to apply to the Union. In New Ungland,Virginia and Kentucky, they have not one bankrupt to every ten that we have here, in proportion to the votes ? In other states the same ; and we may calculate safely that we have three times as many bankrupts tier*?, iu proportion to our votes, as they have in all the other cities, towns and villages in the Union. This would Lring the number down below 100,000 lor the whole United States ; which, perhaps, alter all is the most correct estimate. And to what class does this number belong 1 Why, principally and ; almost entirely, to the dry goods dealers, jobbers, the speculators in stocks, in lands and lots, the financiers and the politicians whilst the grocers, the hardwaretnen, most of the mechanic and manufacturing class, and all the great shipping interest, arc entirely solvent. Such, then, are the estimates, such the numbers, such the classification, such the position of these two great parties. Those last named are the men who call the meeting for to-morrow, and who will doubtless attend there in large numbers, to protect what they deem their rights. And there is no doubt that a large number of bankrupts will be present to see how things work, as this is the first time they have ever caught their powerful antagonists fairly in the field, sword in hand, and with their beaver up. Hut \ye have a word or two ol good, wholesome advice lo both parties. Let there be no collision. There must, of course, be a strong contiict of feeling, opinion, and sentiment; but let that be all. It is true, that some of the bankrupt party have threatened violence, if their hopes are blasted and their measures prostrated. 15ut this must not be. At the anti-repeal meeting many of the solvent and repeal classes w ere present, and otf. red no opposition, except on one occasion a slight hi6s. Let the antirepeal men who may attend to morrow conduct themselves with equal propriety and decorum. With regard to the repealers themselves, it is right and proper that their views should not be misunderstood. This body of men do not insist that the Bankrupt Law shall be absolutely and unconditionally repealed ; but they insist strongly upon having it modified so as to meet their views?or else they desire to have it postpoued till it can be properly and effectually mod died. All we have to say to them is, " Go ahead." Get proper, sensible men tor your speakers to-morrow, who can calmly and forcibly represent all your views, and the strong points of the case. I^et this be done, and on our own part we promise the public the best report of the whole alfair. Now, then, both parties are fairly in the field, " straining for the start," and God defend the right. Congress. The House of Representatives battled during n long session, on Satnrday, on the subject of the Repenl of the Bankrupt Law. The Repealers fought determinedly, to extract a report from the .1 udiciary Committee, and the friends of the Bankrupt Law resorted to every expedient which the forms of the House permitted, to deleat that intention. The repealers, however, were successful, and the bill to repeal the Bankrupt T.aw was introduced and read a first time. A few minutes before six o'clock, I he combatants, from sheer exhaustion, assented to a cesation of hostilities until this day, when the contest will be renewed. The fate of the Bankrupt Law, however, so far a? the power of the House of Representatives extends, is sealed. As the subject in controversy is an absorbing one, every movement in relation to it possesses a paramount interest, aud therefore our Congressional report details the tninuti.i of the day's proceedings.

The Queen and both her babies are quite well; they, with l'rince Albert, have all gone to Windsor for the winterTrade is still dull in England ; the money and cotton markets are without any material change. To add to the general distress there, they have numerous devastating II >ods all over the country.

The infant Prince was in the same carriage with Her Majesty, and his Royal Highness.

His second wife,to whom he had not been many months uuitcd when the recent discovery was made, is an elegant and accomplished woman, about the prisoner's own age, and was before he married her the widow of aciergy- ( man of tne church of England. Mr. Smith was , much esteemed and respected by every one who ( knew liim, and so little was lie suspected of being i implicated in the affair, even after the forgeries had i been discovered, that Mr Muule, the Treasury So- < licitor, after a partial investigation of the circum- ' stances of the case, want to him and said, " a mine 1 is about to be sprung, Smith; but, thunkGod, it will not affect you or me !" The result, however, unhappily proved how little ground there was for Mr. Maule's confidence, as far as Smith was concerned. Until after he had resolved to divulge his guilt, he preserved hisself-possession in an extraordinary degre; and two days only before hn was known to be involved in the transaction, an intimate f'rsend asked him what was the meaning of the rh* mors in the city to the effect that there was something wrong in the Exchequer bill office, when he replied in an apparently indifferent manner, " O, we never talk of there tilings "?6'lob*.

At the time the Soudan left it, the expedition had reached the confluence of the Niger and Tchadda, ahout 270 miles up the river,but it was lean d that Irom the jdraentable condition in which it was placed by the lickness and the increasing mortality among the officers and men, it would be compelled to return to Ascension. Among the victims to the climate previous to the Sourian'aleaving her consorts.was Assistant Surgeon Nightingale, of the Albert: andilurinir her nasnaoc on her return from Allah to ihc mouth of the river, she lost her own surgeon, Mr. W. B. Marshall ami one of her men. When she arrived at the entrance |of the river she fell in with Her Majesty's ship Dolphin, and put her sick on board that vessel to be conveyed to Ascension, eialit of whom, however, died previouato the I lolphin's reaching that place. Mr. Walter, the clerk of the Soudan, was so ill that he could not be removed on board the Dolphin, and it was not expected he would survive many hours; all prospect of his recovery was perfectly hopeless ? Captain Bird Allen, of the Soudan, did not come down the river with her, but joined the Albert, being anxious to accompany the expedition to the extent of its researches The Soudan came down under the command of Lieutenant 1'ishbourne. All her officers and men were sick The steamers make very slow progress in ascending the river; none of them are rernarable for their speed The current of the stream is about three miles and a half, and the average speed of the steamers is six miles, consequently their progress is not inore than two miles and a half per hour The Albert was to proceed up the Niger, and the Wdber force up the Tchadda, while the Amelia schooner was to remain at Mount Stirling, where the farm is to be established, and where the tent lately u?ed at the Kghntoun tournament has already been pitched. The natives were verv friendly; at Eboe, a town containing H,fl(IOor 9,000 inhabitants, several of the onicers went ou chore, the natives crowding to see them. At the tjueen's pal&ce they were received by her sable majesty, who was squatted att he door surrounded by her ladies, the principal of which were decorated with heavy ivory anklets, weighing from eight to ten pounds each. They seemed much pleused with the visit, and laughed immoderately, and in return for some little trinkets given by the oflicers, her Majesty presented thun with a fowl and some Gooza nuts, the h-stewal of which is highly complimentary there. The King of Eboe went on bourd the Wilberforce. accompanied by his son and the interpreter, and others of his suite A bottle of port wine wa9 placed before him, which he did not pais round te any of his attendants, but drank it all himself, and then gave a broad hint, which, however, was not taken, for some grog.

The devaatatingetfects oi in? uuudi, irom ine long continued neavy rains, are daily exhibiting themselves in all directions. Field labors are generally at a stand still At Carshaltnn, Surrey, and the immediate neighborhood, the kitchens and cellars of the houses are under water, and yesterday the water ou the high road at Tooting Marsh reached up to the horses' bellies. About Putney, Battersea, and Wandsworth, whole truck.s of hod are inundated : and in the neighborhood of Weybridge, Chertsey, and other more western parts of Surrey the floods hare been equally destructive. So near town as Brook-green, and thence towards Acton, Haling, Urceoford, Perrivale, and on to Uxbridge and the eastern parts of Buckinghamshire, whole fields are under water. lu consequence of the innndated state of the country, the ma<ls yesterday morning were several hours later than usual. In Hertfordshire, Essex, Norfolk. Lincolnshire, Berkshire, Yorkshire, and the lowland counties, entire villages are under 1 water from taro to four feet deep. Many haystaeks, corn ricks, and even cottages have been i washed down, and several flocks of sheep have i been swept away. In many parts the lands have i the appearance of a large lake, as the hedges or embankments are either washed down or covered irilh witpr. Munv of th<* railroad* havp inHprpd greatly, particularly in the eastern and western Bounties, the embankments being; washed on to the rails, so as to prevent the usual intercourse. From Jvford the vi "ages on the banks of the Thames arc I sompletely inundated, particularly near Maidcn?ead, Eton, Wiudsor, Chertsey, Staines, &.c where many of the dwellings are from two feet to three reet nnder water. The overflow of the Grand Iunction Canal, near Watford,in Hertfordshire, has Bade the cwuntry as far as Aylesbury like one extensive lake. In the vicinity of Maldon. Ware, lud IJerkhamstead, the country is also overflowed. Floods iv Sussex.? During the la-t week considerable damage has been done in the levels and lowlands of Sussex. Many declare that the ennnty has not heen visited with so great a flood since the year 1*14. The cottagers have been compelled 10 take relugo up stairs, the lower part of their houses being under water. At Kirdftvd the wheat fields are under water The whole of the pa-ture land presents one sheet of water, not a v> stiga of the hedges to lie seen. In the neighborhood of Billingshurst the road was impassable In the 11 ei ghb oreood of Leaves, the land has the appearhaceof a sea, the rivar < 'use havidg overflowed the banks. Many of the houses on the cliff, Lewes, snve had their cellars filled with water, and much damage has heen done to the avharl's ns each side of the river. At Kotherfield every bridge in the parish has been overflowed, the trcea'torn up by the roo's, and posts and rails carried away.

Turkey. Constantinople. Dec. 18th ?The Raib/mi?The first day of Bairatn was celebrated oa the 15th with the usual ceremonies. The Sultan seemed rather feeble, but rode his horse with effect Kiza Pasha made more show than nny of the other Pashas in the procession, and evidently as-umed an air of defiance and haughtiness, so as to strike the beholders with fear. Nothing new or remarkable was perceived in the appearance of the other Pashas?none seemed more humble than the good grand Vizier R asaf Pasha, nor any more determined than the new Capudan Pasha, Tahir. The collar of the Sultan's cloak could not hold more diamonds than were on it, and the dresses ol all the great officers of the Porte could not have been richer even if the Ottoman empire was as rich and powerful and as proeperohs as the firsl nation of the world- After leaving the Seraglio Point the Sultan crossed over to Top Kh&neh, and. landing there, proceeded by land to his palace at Dolma Baktchi. PaOGHKSS ov ClOILIZation among the TuSkS. By the most recent advices from this country we learn that his Highness the Bs?haw of Tripoli had captured some 50 Arabs, whom he called rebels. These poor men he stripped naked, had them smnured with honey, and then put in irons and placed upon a wall, under a burning sun. In a moment they were covered with thousands of slinging insects, aud in this deplorable plight they were suilered to die of pain and hunger!

For the past month, up to the time of our departures, the Druses have been committing dreadful havoc among the Christians, slaughtering them in all directions, and burning a great number of their villages to the south of Ueyroot. They extended their ravages as far north ss Znhle, and intended making a descent upon that place, but the Turkish troops had tskcn up a position in the neigh Ixturhood, and their presence no doubt saved its destruction. At present there is a cessation of hostilities, and. indeed, it is to be hoped that this hefarious warfare is brought to a close, as the Druses were returning to their houses. The townofBryreot is swarming with mountaineers who have taken refuge, more especially of the most peaceful portion of the community, consisting ol the aged and women and children.

IbSU The death of Lieutenant General Skelton, of the Bombay establishment, whieh took place in Europe on the 19th of August, leaves the colonelcy of ton tith regiment of native infantry vacant. This will be tilled by the promotion ol Brevet Colonel Fcaron, of the 2d Grmadiers. The line step will take effect in the 24th Regiment of Native Infantry; Major Baillie, Captain Ord, Lieutenant Dnncan, and Ensign Wray, of that corps, being the senior ?f their respective ranks, will each succeed to a superior grade. Amongst other rumors of intended military changes wc have heard that MajorOrd, who will be compelled in eonsequenee of nis promotion, to vacate the paymHstershipof the northern divi.-ion of the army, intends retiring from the tervice immediately bis promotion it ? flicially notified. In tbis case Captain More will succeed to the vacant majority. It is also said that Major Sterling, of the 17th Regiment, contemplates an early retirement, in which case Captain Maean, Lieutenant Anderson, and Ensign M ies will be promoted. The Repulse and Mary have been takeu up for the conveyance nf Her Majesty's 4th Dragoons to Europe. The R-giment will leave Kirkee on the 25th instant, and will embark for England abont the 1st proximo. Acc mmodatmn is required for 15 officers and 471 men It would appear, therefore, that not more than half the men of this corps hare volunteered to remain in India. We understand that the regiment will not be landed in Bombay, but will remain at its present stations until the vessels are nearly ready for sea. Kuksavl?We gather the following local items from our mofussilletters. There has, wc are sorry to say, been a great deal of sickness among the Europeans at Kuruaul, especially among the Huffs. Almost all the officers in that regiment had been laid up with fever : 300 of the men were in hospital (two or three deaths daily) , and there being a scarcity of medical officers at that station, Meerut had been indented upon for a doctor The European regiment had also about 150 sick. The 9th Queen's has been ordered to bold itself in readiness to march to Cabul, should an European regiment be required. A company of Sappers is also go<ng up from Delhi. The Lieutenant-Governor of the north-west provinces was expected at Meerut on or about the 25th, and Sir R. Arbuthnot a few davs later.

Death or Colonel Denh ?We regret to announce the death of Colonel Denby, which occurred on the Will of Septvmoer, at Simla, after (as we understand) but a brief illness "He |>eri8hed." says our (Correspondent, " from sheer inanition, having denied himself even rotee rnukhun ! lie died, however, worth from a lac and a half to two lues of rupees, which will b? a consolation to some ' person or persons' in the second generation; pro bably some young nephews or nieces, for lie was himself a single man.'' It is added, that "he had some time since been enjoined to go to England on account of his health. Hut he c. nfetsed to gome of his acquaintance that he derived too much enjoyment from 4 accumulating' to forgo it even for the sake of henlth itself " Tnc death of Colonel Denby will officially promote Major Home, Brevet Ma jor Carter, Brevet Captain Thomas, and En?ign Lawrence ; bu', as wc believe there is no doubt of Colonel Presgrave's death :?f the Cape, the step will actually go into the 43d Regimen:.

The encroachmests of theSeikhs upon the Celestial Empire still continue, and hare indeed reached an extent likely to attract the attention ot the centre of the unirerse,if it be not altogether absorbed by the proceedings of the outer barbarian* at Canton. For the present it may be, but Zorawar Singh and his victorious Seikhs will hardly fail ere long to brim; themselves distinctly enough to the notice of the Criurt of I'ekin. They are not to be turned from their course by the glozings of Commissioner Lin, the treachery of Kesben, or the powers of Knang, Lieutenant General of the Chinese forces, and cousin to the God of War Defeat alone will tell upon them, a consideration from which Captain Elliott and our Canton Chiefs might draw a very valuable inference. Ry tne latest accounts Zorawar Singh continued to advance into Thibet,driving the armed and unarmed inhabitant* before him like sheep. He is now ou the eastern side of t'.e Munznrnwar Lake, and having driven out the Deb and his forces has got possession of Tukakote without resistance. This is a large commercial town, in a fine valley, said to be nearly as extensive as that of Nrpaul! The whole ot the country marked in our maps as Thibet are governed by a Chinese viceroy at Lassa.

Our letters from Amsterdam, alluding to Baron Rothschild's interviews with the Finance Minister of the Ha. gue, for the purpose of capitalizing the Belgian part of the Netherlands national debt, mention it aa generally believed that the Baron's lest proposition waa to give in several instalment the sum of 9ft,000,000 florins, from which he would obtain from Belgium 100,000,00V florins, in five per cent stock. It is further supposed, though it is hard to say with what degree of certainty, that if these terms are accepted, the Oovernment will use the money in cancelling the old 5 per cent stock, aad this suppoiition it used to explain a peculiar state of the Dutch stock market. The 24 p> r cents have l?en buoyant, hut the b per cents vrry flat, and this it attributed to tha notion that the Oovernment will cancel them at par. Tha Indian papera contain the report of the trade of Bombay by the Chamber of Commvree, similar to that alieady published for the trade of Bengal, though the results are very different, since during the last Ave years the external commerce of Bombay has rather decreased than otherwise, aa is shown in rupees by the following table, where.although the importsof 1940-1 exceed those of 1936 7, the average of the whole five years shows a deficiency at compared with the same year Imports.

The principal imports from Britain uniount to 1.94,62,000 rupees; the increase of imports, as compsreil with' 1836 7, being chietiy in piece goods.

In the trade with France there is a decrease, that with the African coast is nearly stationary, as well as that with Caylon, though the ex|?rt* are ' swollen with nearly three lacs of treasure." With t'enang, Singapore, and the Straits, there is a large in? crease, owing to the trade w ith China having been partly directed into these channels. Intercourse with the Arabiac Gull has been extended, but the same progress isjuot made with the Persian Gulf. With Calcutta the trade is nearly uniform, with Ctitch and Schtde there is an improvement, and the im|iorts from Malabar have diminished, while the exports there, chiefly consisting Bsitish piece goods and metals, have increased.
