'' '? i 1 E NE NE1 Albany, | [Correspoudeace or ths Herald. | Albany, Mtirch 10, 1842In the Assembly a large number of petition! were received, and referred, mostly on the subject of Capita! Punishment, Hawkers and Pedlars, New York and Erie Railroad, and State Prison Labor. The an nual report of the New York Dispensary, was received and ordered printed The Report ef the Hudson and Berkshire Railroad was received and ordered printed. Mr. Fuller, by unanimous consent, offered a resolut'on, calling upon the Secretary of State, to report to the House the doings of ike State, and various county Agricultural Societies, which was adopted. Mr O'Sulli van asked the unanimous consent of the House to introduce a resolution providing for the holding of afternoon sevrions to go on the general order. It was objected to. The House then resolved itself into Committee of the Whole on the bill in relation to the Public Printing. Mr. D R F. Jones said he had nothing to eay in relation to the character of the present State Print er. It might be as pure as the driven snow for aught he knew. The gentleman from Essex had made some remarks on this bill, which was ao entirely at variance with the language generally nsed by him, that he felt pained and surprised, particularly the charges he had made, against the political party to which he (Mr. J.) had belonged, with an early, constant and devoted attachment. It was unnecessary to remind the House of the character of the remarks that fell from thej gentleman; such as, the course of the majority was tending directly to repudiation, a sort of pocket picking. He (Mr. S.) asserted that the bill bore on its face evidence of fraud and false pretences, and said that the| Secretary of State, in order to carry out the provisions of this bill, might be obliged to take the documents in a go-cart, aud peddle them about the country. One remark efthe gentleman deservedvcorrection; he alluded to the remark made by him,intimating a knowledge that the Governor would veto this bill. He could not believe the gentleman spoke by authority in this matter. He could not believe that the Executive had counselled with his political friends in regard to vetoing this measure. He could not believe that the Governor in the face of the Constitution and laws, would volunteer to advance a threat ofa veto on a bill which was still pending, before it became a law. It looked, however, as it it had happened?and as if they did exist a determination to veto it no matter in what shape it might come That there was a determination to keep his ears closed to all arguments advanced in its favonbuthe hoped such would not be the case. The Executive should keep aloof from all party influence. And when the bill was presented for his signature, he should act with a single eye to the duties the conatition imposed ou him. Ttie gentleman from Essex had taken occasion to remark, as evidence, that the bill bore marks of fraud on its face: that it proposed to reduce the prices 10 per cent. He believed that the chairman of the committee, introducing this Din, wag sincere, and mat ne was governed solely by the consideration of economy. He (Mr. J ) would be willing to agree with the gentleman from Albany that five percent was a sufficient reduction. It was anked, as another evidence of the false pretences of this law, why was not this reduction made some ten yean apt*. It this was then desirable, it is now, and all he would ask from the gentleman from Essex was consistency, and when the reform was at last last brought forward, not to complain of want of sincerity He (Mr. J ) had looked over this bill with attention, but he must say that he cannot find that it proposes to remove the State Printer. The only difference, the only change is, that the legislature shall not be obliged to retain him for four years? The law of 1840 provided that the State Printer should hold his office for four years until another be appointed hereafter. It did not say thereafter, and he suppoeed that this bill was thereafter. Again,he did entertain the fears of the gentlemen from Albany and Essex, in relation to the inconvenience that would result from a distribution of the work. He believed that the documents, bills, See. must of necessity, be printed in Albany, and if printers from other sections of the State would not find it for their interest to remove to that city, there was, he had no doubt, other printing offices in the city who would gladly undertake it?no doubt, too, with the proposed reduction of five per cent. But the printing of the Cans) Department, and Session Laws could as well be executed elsewhere as here. And if it was removed, there were printers and editors in his own city, whom he would like to have share in it. Mr. J. then proceeded to eulogise the democratic newspapers of the city of New York in general, and alluded to the obstacles they had thrown in their path, and remarked that even the strong arm of the Court of Chancery wielded against them. | Mr J. argued that the legislature had a full right 10 annul the contract, and .hat the printer had no right to claim the damages, and rambled ofT into a discussion of matters and things in general, and accidents and accidental majorities in particular He remarked alsa, that a contract had exitted with the old State Printer, and that when he was removed, it was an interference with it, and yet he had heard of no claim* for damages on that score. Mr. Strowo thought (that his friend from New York who badjuat taken his seat, was in error in supposing that the effect of the passage of this bill would not be to remove the State Printer. The present incumbent holds his office by virtue ol the law proposed to be repealed. The right of the legislature to repeal the law of 1844) was placed beyond question; indeed the power of repeal was reserved in the bill iteell, and it it were not so, it would still be in the power of the legislature to repeal it It was so clear, independent of the reservation contained in the act, that no one pretended to take different ground. The friends of the law of 18?), however, contend that the contract made under it can- , not be repealed by the legislature, and notwithstanding the law might be repealed, still the contract must remain in force until the end of the term for which the present incumbent was appointed. It \ this be so,, a part of the present bill, if passed, would be inoperative. Another part of the bill | however, would be operative. An appointment of \ State Printer would necessarily carry with it the \ right to publish the legal nonces, A c. Allowing the point that the Legislature had no right to repeal (he contract, to be conceded, it does not abrogate the , right to appoint a Sinte Printer, and the right to , print the legal advertisements. "There is no question , of this right, and so far, the present law wonld be | operative. Mr. S argued at leogth, however,that the < Legislature bad full right to repeal the contract also i Mr Smith replied, arguing against the right of < annulling the contract?charging it aa repadia- i tion, Acc. Arc. , Mr. Swackhamsr thought there had been too i much sensitiveness manifested in thia discussion for the character of the State Printer. Aa regards his \ personal character he had nothing to say ; nut aa for . nis political one, it was of the olackest hoe. He i was the leader of the federal ppe laving party, and as such he ought to be removed ; and his conscience i checked him Tor having suffered him to remain so i long undisturbed. He would inform gentlemen that [ there was more ways to ktfI a dog than by choking \ him to death with butter. The State Prlater had ] made a good deal of money by, he would not say an i evasion of the law, but by an unjust availment of | the terma of his contract We had been told that < the printing had been well done. The documents < certainly looked very pretty, but there was too | much white paper about pages which contained no- ( thing but the words Document 1 or 2, aa the case f might be. For this the printer * as paid at the same 1 rate aa if they had been closelv nrinted. He be- t Iteved there could be no doubt as lo the constitution- i ality or right of the Legislature to annul this contract, and argued to "how this. Mr. Jon!??os, of Chataque, replied, but his argu- | menta were to the same purport as those of the rest < of his whig friends. < Mr. Sisaoiti rose to disavow an intention of hav- I ing intimated, as many aeemed to imagine, the fact t that this bill would be vetoed by the Governor. t In the Sas\Tr. the business has been mainly of a private and local character. The Canal Board m ;de several appointments of i collectors yesterday, among which was that of Da i vid .! Chatfi Id, of th * city of New York.

I ; CAT! ULCJtCA*. I I VV YO W VODF SATTTRnAY TV A V/il l\) kJi I. i V A +. Th* British Tory Press on the Prospect of War between England and the United State*. James Gobuos Bkssitt, Esq: ? Sir : ? There has been so much slander and abase heaped on this country by various journals in Great Britain and Cansda, and by'a few too,which have a respectsble standing, that I hare ceased to wonder at their spleen, their impertinence, and impudence To my astonishment Blackwood has reeeatly joined the yelping curs, and growls and barks too, though not so coarse and vulgar as seme other, equally guilty in misrepresentation, unfairness, and slander. I will notice some ef Professor Wilson's misrepresentations and slanders. Blackwood says, " Every ration tl mua in America must have felt the seizure of McLeod was an^act of injustice." This is (aire, for I know n great many as rational as Blackwood, who justified the seizure (not because McLeod was guilty, for that wa*to be tried) but on the right] of the State of New York to try and punish murder committed on ita soil. What ia the decision of our own Judge*, but a justification oftbe seizure. Were they irrational 1 Professor WiLon would do well to understand the nature and operation* of our National and State Constitutions and Government* better than he does, before he applit a international laws te us, n* it ie applied between monarchical governments- He and moat other writera cannot rid themselves of the impreaaioa that we are under, and ought to be governed by Britiah laws; they eeem to forget that we have thrown otl the kingly and queenly yoke?that we are a nation? (a powerful one t .Republic,not a monarchy)?that we bare our own law*, and that we hare the ability, and will enforce them in our own way, without consuming mother Britain or any one else, and careless whether they are pleased or not, so long as we plea-e ourselves. We ask no favors, aud will submit to no dictation or aggression. Blackwood may also lay the flattering unction to his boul, that he and his tory coadjutors hare go; all the common sense there is in the world, but some of us poor, ignorant, despised republicans, do not suesuiub to the giant ef literature in " Auld Reekie," or any where else, for it so happens that common sense is not acquired, it is ene of nature's gifts, and many thanks to her, she has not been ie niggardly as to confine her gifts to the "fastanchored Isle " We can ahow some ef it on this continent, that might even astonish Professor Wilson, were he to condescend to pay us a ririt. Blackwood again says, " But, while we eonfesa that an American war would do ??rioua injury to England, wa can have no hesitation in saying that it would ruin the piesent Republic of the Uuited States. A shore 1500 miles cannot ba defended by either fleet* or fortresses; even if America had either, a thinly peopled country must be easily invaded, if not easily overrun " I agree with Blackwood, that war would do serious injury to Britaio, but cannot admit " that it would ruin the United States." That it would do serious injury to both, few rational men will question, and it might ruin Britain He might, however, have extended our shore to 8000 miles, and then been within bounds I admit thai it cannot be defended at all points by fleets or fortresses. 1 also admit that at many points our shores might be easily overrun, but 1 will not admit that the invaders eou.d conquer it and hold it. If Britain eonld aot do it in 18il. 18 and 14, when onr population was not more than on half it is now, how then can she expect to be more successful nowl I am aware thatth* mode of warfare is much altered since that time,and that, with the steam vessel* new in use, an invasiou might be more easily eff-cted, and the eonatry overran to tome extent,but I gurssns how they would find it as (or more) difficult to keep their footing on our so.l than they did during the two previous wars. But this is not all; can Britain spare troops enough from her own soil to overrun ours? In the present state in which our own pop. ulation is, I doubt it. Besides, even should she send enoughto ovrnun a poitien of this country, a very considerable number of the soldiers would desert, and many of those who did not do so, would never get back to tell their tale, if they went far from their boat*. 60,00J troops is about as many ns Britain could well snare, but call it 100,000, aad what could that nunibt r effect in an enemy's country like ours, with an army of l,250t0u0 militia, which would soon be in the field; and though they may be considered not veterans, but raw recruits, the British regular.** would find them very formidable opponents,especially among the bushes. They would also find every man, woman, and child their enemy. The idea of oveirunaing this country is nrnnAcforAiin \\7 a mill Anrkt for aii? kftmas an/1 firesides when we will not for conqueit. I would bea* much opposed to our invading Britain, I am to her invading us, and I expect the Britiah would fight for their homes as we would for ours. Countryman here, or countryman th^re, get out of my hammock. There is no friendship with aa inrading foe. 1 eaoaot agree with Blackwood,that "England hae ao desire for American territory ' I think her conduct is at variance with the assertion?vide the Eastern Boundary, the Rocky Mountains questions, &c. Blackwood would evince some consistency if he would look at the rabble in lus own country before he sneers at the rabble in Maine, who are good, honest,substantial farmers, not paupers, and actaally starving, (which I much regret) as thousands of nis own countrymen are at this saoment. The charge ol blustering, too, by our newspaper editors, comes with ill-grace from him. Let him stop the blustering of the London Times, the Liverpool Mail, the Montreal Herald, aud other tory prints, which bare ejected their bile and venom against ue. Blackwood shows great ignorance of the Americas character in comparing the effects the blowing down of the walls of "Acre" had with the Musselmen, with the efTect the destruction of New York wonld have on us. Even if the British could (which I doubt) destroy New York, and every other seaport in the United States, she would find that the war was not endi d, or the enmity ef our nennle subdued. We would retreat and rallvavain and harruas and gore Johnny, that he would be glad to clear out with a bloody note, at he had to do in the war of the revolution. Should a war become the only alternatire, which I hope will not be the rate, and Sir Charles Napier came out here at the head of an expedition to batter down our cities, I hope Professor Wilson will come out at his aide de c .mp. I opine they will find "Jonathan"' (not only) "an aetire fellow," ind a talkative feJInw, but a very stubborn fellow, ind a very different kind of a fellow, and made ef rery different stuff than either the Mahomedant or Chinese, or any other enemy that Napier has encountered We can fight when it is necessary at wall* a talk. The allusions to the seizure, the imprisoning, and the threatening to hang McLend, and still " there was no war," it an unfortunate one for Blackwood is well as Britain. The war threat was made by Britain, instead of it?that if we did to and to to McLeod. Mr. Fox tronld demand hit pas ports, and war would inevitably ensue Mel-end was tried, which was all we contended for in his case, and to this day Mr. Pox remains at Washington, bis ardor being conliderably cooled down The fact is, after all the Plastering and threatening nf Mr Fox and his govern neat, they eonelnded it the best policy to pocket the insult, if it was one, and let Jonathan administar hit own lawt in hit ow.i way, rather than go to war with him, for fear tbey might find him a setter CNttomer in remitting thotthaa in remitting tsilla of exchange or specie lor Manchester rag*, or the interest or principle on money or eredit loaned :o the United States Bank, 4tc. I do not think there is any necessity for going to tvar, if the British government will stop their agircations, and mane rep ;ration tor those they hare committed. I believe our government and people ire willing to meet them in a liberal spirit, and ?ary the hatchet, and amoke the calam^t of peace ivitn them whenever they will meat 111 on friendly tnd equal term*.

I Br fore Judge Belt*. I SKNTKKCK DW. March 11.?Peter Durgan, Charles A. Leighton, and John Smith, the young men who weie cwnviet ed of an attempt to make a rerr.lt on board the wbalesliip Herald, were tirat ordered to stand up The Court then addressed them, apoke of the at* vere penalty provided by law against seamen for disobedience of orders and refusal to do duty, and sentenced Durban and Leightoi to one years imprisonoient at hard labor. Smith (who is a very young man, and had been recommended to mercy by the Jury) was allowed to address the Court, in which he stated his willingness to obey the laws and faithfully perform his duty. His parents are poor, and he expects to make a living by following the sea He regretted refus ng to do duty oa board the Herald, but had been influenced to such disobedience by some of tire crew. He was sentenced to two monih* imprisonment. Patrick C. Martin, one of the late owners of the brie Cicero, who bad bren sent home in the Dol pbiu, and has been convicted of stabbing ihe captain, was then ordered to rise The Court told him ihat he had bteit convicted under the law which rendered him liuble to puni*liw nt not exceeding a fine of $>3U(M)and imprisonment in the Stated Prison for thrss years. Mam-tin asked permission to say a few words ta tho Court, which was granted, and he made a most powerful and impressive appeal He stated that he nad been convicted notbrcause He was guilty ofthe charge, for he declared before God that he was not se, but by the machinations of an enemv, and that enemy no other than his own biother-in law, the extent of whose enmity he was not aware of till he went out with him in the Cicero this voyage [the brother-in-law was supercargo ] But he is now, 1 understand,said Martin,on a sick bed,and perhaps ere this gone bolorr that tribunal "who searcheth the heartland 11 ieth the reins." He camo home and told my wtfe that I was a villain.and said to his own wife (my sister) that he had got "the flower ofthe family where he wanted to have him, and that he would take her to the west and cut her throat "? I ean prove this, yonr honor, by my aged father, who now stands beside me, and by other witnesses. Your honor said truly in your charge to the Jury, that my conduct, if it ban been such as the evidence pouitrayed, appeared to be mysterious. It would indeed have been so; I was part owner of that vessel, and ray interest aud my iaclinations prompted a different course from what has been attributed to me. But the evidence was not correct. Some ef the witnesses were too ignoraut to know k m.s.. m/sLmIm ..si.. a A .'J tU. ...? mo iiaiuio ih mcir uaiuc, uuu uiuiicjr uiu iui icvi As tompself, your honor, I would care not, aa to any punishu ent that might be inflicted.

They had a right to look to me for support, and 1 canaot gire it. [The prisoner was deeply affected.] They say, your Honor, that I used a weapon against that little weak man. Again 1 declare thai I did not. I nerer feared my fellow man end was ready as ethers to present injury, but Inquired nothing but the weapons that God and nature have given rne. I had no enmity towards the Captain, ana had no occasion to assault him in any way or shape.? They say they followed the brig out?'tia true, hut why did they jnet come to her! I cast off the sheets, and did erery thing to prevent her sailings say, more, 1 threw myself between Wallace and my brother-in-law, and I saved his life, as I did liso that of Davidson, the yonng man who is now pre?ent. I saved the vessel, and am now to suffer, f>ut 1 could bear it, having the consciousness that it is underserred, if the fate of others were not inrolred with mine. Judge BtTrs, in reply, stated that his address and manner bad deeply enlisted the sympathies of the Jourt, but the law must be fulfilled. The Judge then alluded to applications which had been made in the prisoner's behalf by several respectable persons of Baltimore, by bis aged father, and also by an eminent dirine or thiu city. The character of Martin appear* to stand high, nnd he exhibits evidence. the Ceurt observed, of bum? well educated. You have had, (aid he to Martin, r patient trial,and if the evidence ie correct,your ability and standing reader your crime more aggravated If you feel a consciousness, however of in> ocence, it will be a louree of strength 10 you which could be equalled l?y nothing elae. After f<>rcible[remarks, the Court lentrnced him te pay a fine of $500, and be imptimncd at hard labor in the States i'riaoa for two rev . The following letter was received from his aged ether, and prcaented to the Court:? Ma. Paica?Dear Sir. Escuse me for withing to establith in yotir opllioii the character of my unfortunate ion, who i* now : on fined in priion, in the state of New York. Patrick Charles Martin, mv eldest and only living son, has always been a dutiful and obedient son. He was taught in he best schools in Baltimore tilt he reached his six:eenth ye?r, and the different teachers he wu with have ilways given me the most gratifying testimonials ot his character and deportment. On reaching sixteen lie shipped with Captain Butler, and made a three > ears voyage around the world, during which his conduct,os represented to me by Capt. Butler was not only unexceptionable, but highly commendable. On his retnrn From this voyage he connect! d himself in marriage with a highly respectable lady of Oxlord, Penn.. by whom he has two children, to whom, as husbaDd.-ana father, he is bound by the strongest ties of attachment, aad came to Baltimore and established himself in business with me under the firm cf Charles Martin & Son. Subsequently, and while a member of the firm, he made several voyages in the capacity of Supercargo snd part owner from lhi( port, to St. Thomas, Porto Kico, and Kingston, Jam. In all these transactions, be acquitted hiriuelf honors bly to himself and profitably loi the firm.

Several names are attached, testifying to the high standing and integrity of Mr. Martin. The following letter was addressed to the Court in bis behalf ; ? Nsw Yoax, March II, 1841. The Hon Jvdue Butts. Dear Sir, The father of Martin, who was found guilty in your Dourt,a few days ago has importuned me for thrse lines o you. The poor man feels all the anguish of a fond rather for a son, who if i ot, in his opiniou, as criminal is the evidence against him would make him.

Mrnti Forgeries ?On Thursday Mr. Jacok Mack, of No. 290Grand street, in payment for somo g kh1? purchased at auction, gave lain check for the a nuunt on.the Butchers' and Drovera' Bank, of thio city, where he had kepr an accouot for a length of time. On presentation of the check the auction* eer was informed that Mr. Mack's account had bee? overdrawn, and, therefore, the check could not be p iid. It w as returned, and upon an examination of h hank book he found that six forged checks to the a nount of $1100 combined, had been paid by the bank. Certain circumstances induced him to suopeut a young man named Lewis Helleman, who had formerly been in his employ as clerk, and who when discharged a few montha since, represented himself as penniless. It was ascertained that he had recently opened a lace store atllO^ William street, in company with another young man named Frederick Loewenstein. Officers Sweet and Cockefair were Elected to "do up" the business, ami they veiy judiciously arrested Loewenatein first, who stated that he met Helleman a! Pinteaux'a Uoiel, m the early part ofJanuary last,and during a conversation* H- proposed a partnership to conduct the dry goods and lace business, which was declined by L. on ac1 count of a want of funds. Helleman then told him he would supply funds, and accordingly they com* menced business with $1100, which was put in by him. The money was principally in notes of the Butchers' and Drovers' Bink. These circumstance*combined, induced the arrest of Helleman, wh o has been committed to prison, as his hand writing it the forged checks has been fully identified by both Mr. Mack andLoewcnslein.
