We Hnili*r.;tiind that preparations are making in some f)ti irters to call a groat mooting of the people in Tammany Hall, for the purpose of expressing th*.i" opinions on the doctrines of " repudiation ol deiit," whieh begins to prevail and to gain ground in certain quarters of the country. A large portion of the country ar" utterly opposed to liiis doctrine, either as applied to States, to corporndnns, or to individuals. The " sacred obhga tion ?f contracts" it a principle that characterises the early and pious settlers ot this continent?that runs through all their subsequent public, and private acts down to the revolution?that was placed in the Constitution of the General Government, aud the coustituhon of every State, us an indisputable axiom ?as the firtn and immoveable cornerstone of American civilization. Unfortunately of Into, arising from a loosemmof nt< rals, cotemporaneous with bunk suspensions, this old and sacred principle has been met by the detestable doctriue of "repudia. tion," which should be put down at once by the honest voice of the community. A bankrupt law based on principles of equity und mTcy to debtor and creditor, would be a good and a salutary meauuie?but any bankrupt law which authorises the repudiation of debts without the consent of the ere. di'or, would seem to be too like the doctrine of "dta'e rrpuJiution," to meet with general approbation. To express a full and authoritative opinion on these great principles of civilization, it is proposed that a pr'ct metnig be called in Tammany Hail, of the whole people; and we learn that the pro para tions are maktug accordingly. Whither it will grow ton head, we know r.ot.

An overll ?uing and h jhly respectable meeting at ciuzena nppo* d to the repeal of the Ilankrupl Act, Wdi h- Id up town last eveniag- Lafayette Hall, the place of meeting, was crowded. There were probably a'?jut three thousand persona present. The meeting watt perfectly unanimous, and the ,reate.?t decorum prevailed- Diafts of petitions were placet! tn various parte ?f the room ami in the lobbies, wntch received upwards of one thousand signature*. At half past seveu o'clock, l?r. Srif?n flsssaococ wan unanimously called to the Chair, on the in* ion of Mr- George W. lllunt. After the call of the meeting had been read, the fullwing gentlemen wtre appjinted as Virx PmiintDTi, WiUium B Crosby, George Buckley, Abraham Van Veil, Geo Arcularlut, Israel Corse, Joseph Hopkins, Thomas Lawrence, Oidaoa Tucker, Samuel Thompson, Henry Ki maun,, Zebedee Ring, John Congor, Henry b ltiell, Russell K Glover, Judah llamHioa I, Audrsw Lock wood , J.iiars Haniult, Georgw b Smith, C B Archer, Richard K Carman, i Alexander Miug.jr, Caarles Yales, Robert Smith, James N Wells, George S Doughty.

Mr. Joeti-h 3- Boswoxth then addn -?ed the meet * isg at considerable length and with much eloquence. He refuted the various obi-ciiou* hie!? hail Iwi'ii urji S .n'nait ine 11 internal Low. and r.oa eluded by moving the loilo.vtug rcMilutioua, winch were uuduiinouaiy adopted witu the greatest enthusiasm ;? Retolved, That| the great depreciation in tho ptiees of almoat every descioption of property has ?o changed the relation between debtor und creditor, at to reader a law lor ike relief of IWnkruuU aau fui UiA JtU'tJikeltftk.y necessary. Rei?lpti, That Congress, under the powers granted by the constitution, having secured to the Pi-opleofthe United Stales a system of Laws for the regulation and reliel of bankrupts and insolvent debtors ; the act passed at the extra session of Congress, entitled " An aet to establish u Miiiforni system ol bankruptcy throughout the United Slat**," ought not to be repealed or postponed. Hnulvd, That although the existing Bankrupt Law may not be deemed per.ect, it cannot be Justly ulleged that it was hastily adoptei, inasmuch as previous to its enactment both the general principh s and all the deljili ol that measure were felly discussed by the press, by ihe people, and 111 Congress, for a period of nearly three yaars, during which time ull the arguments now' urged in favor of its repeal ware fuliy considered, and deemed ol but little importance when Weighed against the Ereat unJ manliest benefits which cannot fail to result to the l>ulilic at large from its bnneliwiui opi rations. lieiiilvi, That of all the remedies proposed to revive the commerce, resusoita.e the industry, and give new life to the great agricultural tad manufacturing interests of the country, w? look upon the existing bankrupt Law as the most certain, because it will result in separating tho solvent trom the insolvent ]>ortiomof the community. Ruolvtd, That in tho opinion of this meeting, saij law should be allowed to go into operation, thereby re sioi mg to the country the enterprise and meral anergics of a ge number of active and intelligent men, wnose misfortunes have placed thuin in a position of hopeless dependence, uis>l deprived them ol the opportunity of rendering their talents available, either to Uiemselves or tbair country. Rrtalvii, That there is no indication that the people have become more adverse to a .'general Bankrupt Law since the adjournment of tho extra session ot Congress, but an the contrary, a very large |>ortion of those who were theu opposed to the enactment ol any Bankrupt Law, have since united with its advocates in viewing a repeal by Congress before going into operation, as au act 01 great injustice to the honest, but unfortunate men, to whom rclitd has been guaranteed by a solemn Leg is lathe set. Reiotvtd, Therefsro, that tha repeal or postponement of the Bankrupt Law would be in violation of the plighted taith of the nation, lu opposition to tho clearly ex presiedwish ot a great majority of the people, and seriously injurious to tho prosperity and welfare of the aouutry at large. Rrsulttd, That this meeting fully concur in the reso iui *11 onrri'ii ny tne Hon U. K. IJuiIer, at tlio misting in the Merchants' Ksch.mge on the 13th inst ? ts wii? ! Reiolttd, That while wc deem it a measure oi justice ] and policy, as well as of humanity, in the existing con dition sf our country, to provide lor tho relief ot the un- 1 fortunate and hom-si debtor, and lor this and other rea ; sons, oppose iheYepaal or suspoaeion of the law under ' consideration, we nevertheless believe, that the great benefits to be derived from a well digested Bankrupt t Law, are to be found in its preventive influ.iiee on the contracting of debts, and in tho pcrmauent settlement of the relations of debtor and creditor, and that we there- t fore consider it indispeusabla that all expedient sate- i guards should be established to prevent fraud, and that full pietrotion should be given to all just credit?rs; no J especially to the creJitoia of Banking corpora- ( tiens, and that thr present la w, so lar as it is defective in these inspects, should lie amuudod by s supplementary set, in such manner as to accomplish these desirabfa ends, hut without being repealed or postponed. l H'tolmrd, That it is the duty hr well as the right of Congress to establish "unifuim Laws on the subject of ' UauKiuptciesthroughout tbe United Sutes ? | That by tolerating such great diversities as now exist in the laws of the several States on the subject, great 1 injustice la done to both the debtor and the creditor? j to the del-tot because no ultimate rsiliei is afforded to him, however complete ntsy be the surrender oi all his ' moans; aud to the creditor, because no adequate piotec- i tioti is i rovuled against thu devices of iruud. That a Baukrupt Law, iu order to comport with the Constitution must be uuilorm in its operations, through- I out nil the States and over ell parsons natural aad articinl, and to he beneficial, must not only alford relief to the hoiit ft and unfortunate debtor, but must be able to oi.force Irom all corporations as well as poisons, the ]><-rfo'Btunceot tht ir obligations to tha extent oi thur i ability. j That in enacting the present Law, Congress lias pet. formed only a ptulioii of its duty, and it remains for that 1 body to poileci the work it has begun, and by adopting < tht. neCeisarv amendments as n n'lnnli-mi-iiiari hill make it? operation at extensive as it ?bull he beneficial. ' Rtmlvd,, That the proceeding* of this meeting he forwarded to thn Prudent ol the United State*. Alto, to the Hon. Silat Wright end Nathaniel P.

Kerns, te- j questing that 'he tamo may ho presented to the Senate and House of Representative*. IIammokd M. Homavmb, lvq. then, in obedience 1 to the loud call of tlie meeting, rose and made a very eloquent speech. lie argued at great length that the Itunkrupt law was in eirict accordance . with the municipal Inwa of the Governor ot the universe, wh? had uttered the most ntvful deauncia- ' tiona against the oppressor* at ih? poor and unfor- 1 Innate?w ho had declared that the debtor who was unable to discharge his sieb's, should l?e set tree and aiiorded an opportuni y ol fulfilling; his obligationa Mr 11 concluded, by declaring (hut if the government of this cotiniry repealed the law, ihey would incur the righteous indignation o( u inercilul Creator. There were th?n loud calls for Col. Mian, and that gentleman aecoidingly rose and spoke in a very forcible manner tor about 3d minute* ; lie contended that the law was alike constitutional and expedient He showed that it was in perfect accordance with the spirit of the Constitution, and oii!culat<d to carry ..... .1., I... r, .,,r.,te lit ui>S rjt.ji.n. nl ll,,. f. of that sacred instrument Mr M also replied to the objection urged against the Law that it violated contract?; and concluded by rb eloquent a;>p- ai to the mechanics and working classes, wnoni he called on, to support in their hour of trial, the men who now labor *d under the pressure of debts contracted in the pursuit of hutiuole enterpr sea, which had given ernph yment to immense numbers of the laboring clissce, the bone and sinew of any coautry? Uur limited space prevents us from giving even a m?agre outline of this speech, which was received with great applause Mr Jamiji i?. Tiiayir then addressed the meeting He comm- nced by raying that a powerful argument hi favor of the Bankrupt Act could be drawn Irani the !nct that men of all political parties had united their voice agaiuat the repeal of the law. He dwelt at length 011 the circumstance that the tuli w*?ei uunt to tie repealed without a fair trial being I t ffnrded to it Congrrss, he contended, had attiple power to pass the law, and ludeed its opponents had s'u'ied their ?r >nnd, and no longer amd (hat the law wae ineonsitutional, but inexpedient.

Colt's Tbial? Dodllt>.?We have noticed the remarks and the motion made yesterday by Dudley Seldan, in the Court of Oyer and Terminer, relative to an Extra Herald, published on Thursday evening. After tke termination of the trial, we shall take up the point of Mr Seidell's harangue, and show that he had not the slightest foundation to attribute to us any desire?auv wish?any intention to prejudice Colt before the jury or the community. We are very much astonished at this conduct, on the part of Mr. Seldon, because we have always considered him a superior man?of great tact?and equal industry and genius. But we forbear further remark till this trial is over. In the meantime, Judge Kent m-t the complaint iu the only proper manner in which auah a frivolous matter bhould be met, by dismissing it at once, and ....i-.;-- <i?. niaj (P proceed. This is tbe Wav lo 0IV? riirrnifu jin?f uLuMinn tr? tKp KphoU and to surround die administration of justice with that high toned, moral, passionless, lioly, and intellectual atmosphere that will command the admiration of society, and advance the cause of civilisation Such dignified conduct in Judges inspires the press with that veneration and that noble emulation, that tends to advance the cause of public morals and public justice. The administration of the press, and the adminstratien of the laws, are then united in the same great progressive advancement of the human race, in all that can dignify Hnd embellish human nature. The exhibition of sudden passion in Judges or in Counsel, for frivolous causes ? the issuing of hasty orders for contempts on sudden emergencies?the running to Crand Juries with frivolous or ridiculous complaints?never did, and never can give dignity to the administration of justice, or elevate the reputation of Judges. JudgeKent in one day, in half an honr, in five minutes, has done more to elevate and give dignity to the administration of the laws,and to secure their impartial exercise than men acting under the feelings and views expressed by Mr. Selden, would do in half a century. The administration of the laws and the administration of the press are equally the elements ol a high and lofty civilization, and when they are conducted on the like elevated principles, society and civilization will leap forward into thu next generation, with the speed of a lucomotlve through the mountain ridge of Berkshire, uniting Boston and Albany in one day, aad tapping New York of a third of her prosperity.

This has been a most rpriig-iike day?the air is aageuiai ami nanny aa hi mc iuuiiui 01 April, and the water runs through the streets in torrents Indeed, Insnine of the streets, it ia almost impossible to era's without getting up to vour knees The fine weather has had the effect of bringing out the India* in great numbers, and the Capitol has been well attended by them. There has not been much of general interest done in either H?>use to-day. The Senate was occupied moat of the day in Executive session, and the House in the dissection ?f the Governor's Message, which has not been got through with as vet. The House must now be convinced that eo far us ecouomy aud retrenchment are concerned, the changes in relation to the public printing have been productive of but little advantage. It always occupies as much time in debating whether the reports of the standing committee on the subject shall be adopted, as would more than pay for the extra printing proposed. Such has been the case thus far, and aB long as it is composed ot the present mem bers there is like to be little change. Mr. Tamklin, the chairman of that committee, is, as fur as his legislative practice has evinced, far too parsimonious. His sole object appears to be to | reduce the expense to the lowest possible rate, regardless how important the subject may be. This ways draws out remarks from the members who are ' in favor of the extra copies, and a long debate generally ensues. Tke House will fiud it necessary to j make some alteration in this matter if they intend, as they profess, to make a short sessisn of it.

Like either -f these, there ire rcry low squares to be found in it. Its streets, in most instances, uieso contrived as to form triangles. The enly method of accounting for this rationally, is that its founders laid out its street* along the old Indian trial*. sheep paths, and cow paths, a* they found thren in the w??ds. ^onc of the ang'et are ao sharp, thai they will split a regular northeaster into different parcels, sending part through one street und part through an thei, sotliat we hare in every case of a high Wind, a wind fr? in cxt-ry point ot the compile, anil Irom all quarters t f the earth, at the same moment ; and when pass ng from one street to another, jou can never tell freiu what directum the I wind will tekc you next.

State of Public Opinion in RothrsUr?Bigotry and Stg(tr??Weu> Trial Duar Berwrtt :? Wall, the laniaua Van Zandt'a case is over, and the great world rolls on as ever, but what do you think of the verdict of the jury T You scetn to have been surprised?we, sober citizens, are astounded ! What could have been expected front the evidence of the case but a prompt acquittal?how then did the community stand amazed at the verdict of #3000 Now a little to the facts and circumstances ot the case. Mr. Van Zandt was long the popular and gentlemanly rector of Grace Church in this city. Willi the well bred and liberal of all sects he was weM esteemed, and at ihe same tune bated by all the bigots because he gave parochial levees, and smoked cigars ! When the foul charge of seduction was brought against him, as all things are possible, his friends, for the most part, suspended pronouncing their ?pinion, averting tint the allegation was probably unfounded, but would be best tested on trial. Not s? with the Ingots Like so many hellhounds, they bellowed forth in full chorus that he was guilty?he ihould be guilty, and should he found guilty ! heaven and earth to the contrary notwithstanding! A profligate press joined in the cry, and for five months past Mr. Van Zandt has been pre- j judged b-fore the public. Prudent men of all ranks delnyed forming their opini ns until ihe trial, but the mob mod rasealocraey swore deeply that the accused should net aseape. Well, the trial came on. The girl was sworn, and sueh a story ! tight months gooe und ign?raut of it ! * * * and the first time too?no change of dress, and a walk of half a mile to boot ! * * * * ******* Bnt 1 will not sicken you. A jury ot sensible women would have acquitted Mr Van Zandtonthe girl's own story And tben an alibi so clearly made out.?And such a verdict ! The very judge on the bench was sickened and disgusted at the verdict Others who had formed no opinion before the trial now declared in Mr. Van Zandt's favor,and thore are now ten who advocate his cause, where there was one before The nae oi public opinion is turning, and more sympathy is ellici ed from the fact saw made kaown,tnat a portion of the jury had made up their minda against Mr. Van Zandt, before thev enteied the jury box, ae that the generoua confidence of hit counsel in their integrity was entirely misplaced. ' he sentiment now prevalent ia, that Mr Van Zandi has been tried, but not in court ; and all sensible men ate indignant at what they conceive to be an outrage on the forma of law and justice. Mr Van Zandt has applied for a new trial,and will probably get it Meanwhile ycu and yoar readers will suspend your opinions, on the simple ground of juatioo to a fellow man. As to Mr. Van Zundt'a persecutors, I advise them to re commence the manufacture of gossip on this interesting subi ct; to dog the very footsteps ef the accu-ed ; to bribe same poor ass to whom in friendly eonfidencs he may have whispered the agony of his soul, to come forward ui\d betray him ; and by all naeana to continue to exhibit their little protegi at moral reform meetings, and sewing societies ! The end is not yet! In my nsx( I will rceur to other matters. Boston. [Corrtspoadrasc of Iks Hsrald.] Boston, Jan 20, 1642. Religion* Hints in Boston?Elder Knapp?Military IVrned Out? Theatre*?

R ailhoad Aocidxwt.?A man named Hugh Coolahan, who has recently been engaged on the New York and Erie Railroad as a laborer, was killed a few days since aear Piermont, by the collision ot two railroad cars. He had placed himself between tke cars in order to fasten them together, and the force of their headway being such, although propelled by man power, he was uuable to escape. The remains being sent to this city for interment, without a certificate from the coroner of Koekland county, it became necessary lor an inquest to he held here, which the coroner called yesierday, and tba above facts were elicited. ArneMrr to I)nows aw Isfast tks days ol? ? f>a Thursday evening, about dusk, as three men were passing 24th sireet, near the Kast river, they observed a woman with an infnnt in her arms that was crying. The noise of the child attracted their attention, and on seeing the woman go to the foot of the street and return without the child, one ol them caught hold of her and retained her uu'il the other two proceeded to the shore, whpre thev found the little innocent flouting in the river, being buoyed up by its clothes. With the aid of an oar the child was rescued from the water, Htul onh?ing taken to the upper police office, was restored to life. The unnatural and brutal mother says her name is Margaret McKinaey, and when questioned as to her conduct gave no satisfactory answer. She waa committed to be tried for ?he outrageous act of inhumanity. Street Door BuRnLtnjEB.?During rhe last few months, a number of housed have been entered iu the upper part of the city by a gang of colored men, and property ta the amount of several hundred dollars stolen. The system resorted to by these ragues, has been to call at the front door of a dwelling, and on enquiringforsome one of thefamily, and requesting the servant to call them, take advantage of hisnbsenoe and steal all that they could lay their hands upon in the hall Also, to present a letter for some one in the family, and while the servant was delivering it for the purpose nf returning an answer, commit a like offence. Two black inen have been arrested and committed at the upper police, named Charless Campbell and Benjamin Johnson, alias Phillips, charged with some dean burglaries of the above character Grand Lakcbnt.?An old rogue named James Webb, was caught on Thursday evening, by officer McGrath, in the act of entering the store of Win.

During the last two weeks, a number of articles of stationery have been stolen from the premises, as well as ?19 in bank notes. Webb couft swd having entered the store several times by false keys, and of having stolen the property lost. lie was fully committed. A Ward Collector Robbed-?The store of Patrick Doherty, collector of the Twelfth Wurd, waa entered on Thursday night, by the rear windows being forctd, and #30 in copper coin, a surtout coat, and a quantity of segars, stolen.

Mitchell.?At the opening of the court Judge Noaii proceeded to give hi* opinion on the application of the conntel of Cbarle* F. Mitchell, for an arrest of judgment in the reeent verdict rendered against him, on the ground that the two Aldermen sitting upon the bench as Judges at the lime of the trial rendered the court an illegal tribunal in accordance with thrlaw of 11M0. His opinion was lengthy, and was a mere repetition of th?. arguments heretofore presented to prove that the Aldermen were not, legally, Judge* of the Court. He contended that as the Aldermen had acted as Judges during the trial of Mitchell, contrary to the law of 1840, therefore the application for *d arrest of judgment was proper, and should be granted. Judge Ltnch followed with his view of the ease, and maintained that the Aldermen had not been eansnltcd as Judge* of that Court, although they had intruded theuisalvcs upon thr bench ; that ,i tnry were not lb* Court m ? b of the tieneral Ruuii>.. ).,.? ww .?.).-owiedgcu F only as a part of the Court of Special Sessions. > And in conclusion, he decided their intrusion upon the bench did not prrs-nl sufficient argument to induce him to decide in favor of granting tho application of couniel The Rkcordck then read his opinion, which was concise Ho stated thai :he application for an arrest of judgment should depend matnlv upon some fault in the record. That the more fact of the assumption by the two Aldermen to hold seats on the bench of the Court did not destroy th* power of that Court to perioral the duties incbixjbent upon it, and therefor- an application for arrest of judgment on that ground was not good. That if the Court sbou d decide in favor of the motion of counsel, tho result would c two almost a general jail and prison delivery. Alter a short review of the decision i f the Supreme Court, ho refused to accede to an arrest of judgment, which therefore was ree -rded as the npip on of the Court, himself aid Judge Lvneh concurring At this moment Alderman Innbs stated that he had prepare d an opinion in the esse wbsch he would read.
