Capital Punishment?Finances and Stale Stocks?Adjournment?Pilot Ijxw?New York and Erie Hail' road, fyc. 4*cIs the Assembly to-day, a large number of petitions were presented and referred. They mainly related to the abolition of capital punishment, New JorK and Kne Kiilroad, Hawkers and Pedlars, Redemption of broken Safety Fund Bank notes, Acc. The various standing sontmittees reported a great nnmber of bills, of no general iiu|>ortanoe however. Business is now being driven ahead in good earliest. Mr. Grout, from the Committee on Trades and Manul-ictures, reported a bill to amend theli.n law of iftttlaod ls3?, tun better to seetsre the payment of the wages an t moneys duo for materials to mechanics and others, and asked, aud obtained leave to have it ordered to a third reading. He remarked that the Committee had made the pro visions of this hill applicable to those places only that had raked for it. viz New York, Brooklyn, and Rochester, aud suggested that members from other sections rain lit move to include the respective cities and villages which ihey represented, if they desired to do so. Mr. Horrssan, Irons the Committee of Ways and Means, to whom was referred the resolution of the Senate adopted on the 10th met., to the eflVct that whereas the system ot finance and excessive is. sues of State atoek, Ate., if continued, would be disastrous to the ?tate;that, therefore, provision j should he made for the liquidation of the present | debt, and not to inere ise it unless in esse of war, insurrection, or invasion. Mr. 11. remarked that 1 the great principles involved in the resolution, 1 were so correct, th it there could be no diversity , of opinion < n the subject. The ouly way neces- . sary to maintain it, would be to show ihe disastrous ' effects to the country of a contrary course. He ' thought it somanifo.-t, however, thai it would only 1 be necesaary to take questiou on the reso.utinn. i Yet if gmilemen weie still undecided, be would j move iti reference to the same Committee of ike Whole taring in charge the tax hill. Belirr'ng j gentlemen tad made up their minds, he would ! move to take question, it they tad not, they could more to lay it on the table Mr. Waioirr, from Washington, tad rot made ! up his mind, aud moved accordingly that the reso- I lution lie on the table, which was lost. Mr. HorrnAX then stated that be was forced by the state of the country, and the sense of the House, to submit a motion for considering the bills | reported by the Committee oa Ways and Means, I at tha earliest practicable monit nt. The State debt | of $200,000, falling due to-morrow, mutt be protested, as the State would net be able to pay anytbiag more thaa the interest on it, and there existed ao provision on the statute book, ky which it mi^ht be raited Heaee the necss<ity of immediate action oa these bills. Mr H. then offered a resolution, to the effect that the Tax Bill, the resolution from the Senate, See , be made the special order of the day for Thursday next, which was agreed to. A message was received from the Senate, inforaaing the House that they had concurred in the resolatien that the Legislature will adjourn on the | 12th day of April next, at noon Mr D. 11. F. Jones submitted n reselution that tta bill in relatien to pilots by the way of Sandy 1 Hook, be printed, which was agreed to. The House then resolved itself into the Commit- J tee of the W hole, to whom had been referred the 8tatelPrison Bill, end Mr. Loomis's People's Reaolntioa. Seme discussion then oeeurred on the question as to which of the two subjects was first entitled te consideration. Tta chair decided in favor of Mr. L's resolution. Mr. Wmn appealed from tta decision of the Chair, but the decision was auatainsd. Mr. Looxis then proceeded to argue in support of the resolution in n speech, which, though long, was very able aad conclusive. He contended that had the que?tiou, whenever nay addition to the : State debt waa proj?o?ed, been submitted directly j to the people, ike financial condition of the State would Mttr hare been found in ao lamentable a 1 a it nation aa at preaent. He thought it wrong that < mere aeetional influence should hare the effect of ineuriingadebt which the whole State had to bear the burden ef. He contended that it waa for the want of some anch proriaion in tbe constitution of thia and o'her Statea, that there were ao many of them now plunged into auch a deplorable ata:e of , bankruptcy, forced to make the avowal that they , were unable even to pay the interest on tbeir debta, , &i.&e. Mr. L continued hia remarks uutil tbe i hour of two, which being tbe hour of aejeumment, I cut him off before he had concluded, and the Houae | adjourned to half-past three o'clock. The afternoon aeia.on* being act fvr tha consideration of the general orders, Mr. Loomis will not be able to conclude his speech until some other dap. ArTEBitoon Session.?Tbe House resolved itself into cemaaittea of tbe whole, Mr. Sbelton in the chair, on tbe bill in relation to coats in certain eaaes. Mr. Stuono spoke at .some length againat tka bill. A motion was made to strike oat ike enacting clause, but after some discussion the bill waa laid upoa the table, until the commmittee should rise and report The tame committee took up the bill to amend the charter of the Firemen's insurance Company of the eity of New York. Tbe bill waa agreed to. The aame committee took up the bill entitled an net to amend the act iu relation to absconding and concealed debtors- After some debate on the bill, the committee rose and reported progress on these bills. The only one gone through with, was the Firemen's Insurance Company bill. The boat leavinr at fire. I em nhii???t letter at half put four, tearing the keaae atill in session la the 8eaate to-day, Meaara. Fiarili.i and Scott, each presented a petition from the eity of New York, for the speedy completion of the New York and Erie Railroad. Mr. Scorr prcaented one for the incorporation of the New York Floating Dry Dock Company. The one day election law paeaej in the Assembly, araa reported with amendments, and ita paaaage recommended. The joint resolution from the Assembly, fixing on the 12th proximo, was then taken up and after considerable debate was passed onanist on sly. The bill ehaoging the aaanaer of appointing Bank Commissioners, was reeeired from the Assembly, with an amendment changing the day of election tor the present year from the 25th March to the 4th of April, and was eoncarred in. A communication was reeeired from the Canal Commissioners la reply to a resolution of the Senate, asking information relatire to thn Chemung Canal loan. The report is long, and in answer to tho specific inquiry, it appears that the loan has not boon , negotiated, nor is there any probability that it will be nader the present law- In some remarks on the quemion as to its reference, Mr. Drcxrirsois expressed hie confidence that eapitelists would j promplr take it, at an interut of saren per cent. , A number of bills were read a third time and passed. On thn New York unnal tax hill, Mr , Vasiis raised the question of its being a two third . , bill, it having pu.-ed tho tousou a majority hill. t It was laid on the table. ' We had ?

VV ro W YORK, THURSDAY A The Cask or Captain ' Schuiuveb ahd Ma Harding, the Mate.?It ia well known that there are always two tides to a question ; and that one story is good till another is heard. As we have before given all the faets oa the one side in relation to the above case, we now call attention to the foliowiag details, elicited at a highly respectable meeting of shipmasters on Monday last:? At a largeand respectable meeting of Merchants, Shipmasters and others, convened pursuant to notice at the Shskspeare Hotel on Monday evening, March 14, 1812: The meeting was calledjto order by David T Williams, K>q , and on motion, Cap'ain Charles Bartling was appointed Chairman, ana Win Poole and Captain Geo. Hirtol, Jun., Secretaries. The objects of the meeting having bean brit fly stated, George WiDoa, E?q in a lucid and forcible manner, urged upon the meeting the i.ece?sity of adopting measure* of relief towards Captain Sehnevsr and Air. Harding, master and mute of the ship Henry Clay. After which several letters were rend, together with certain affidavits from Capt Juhn El well, the formert wner of the snip llenry Clay, and XV. Humphrey, Capta n Schrtever'r for mer mate, ail of w hieh spoke in the highest terms of Captain Sehiiever'a character fir mildness, lorbearsnce.and gentlemanly conduct; and al?o ol his anexceptionabl* moral cliaraetr r. After which, on motion, Captains Corne l, Smith and Stanhepe rert appo.titsd a commune 10 draft resolutions expressive i f the sense of the in etiug; and after they had retiied for that purpose, at the request of several ucntleiuea, aB article that appeared in oae of (be morning paper* explanatory of the nature of tba prosecution against Captain Sctiriever and hi* male, and their prrsent sufferings, arm* read by Mr. IVole. The committee appn.nted to draft resolutions then returned and teportea the following, which were read >>nd unauimoualy adapted. The comauttee beg h ave to r? pott, that they have reflected with much care and deliberation upon the matter connected with the bu-iness of this i meeting, and would respectlully statu that they con- | siller the present n fit and proper time to place I before our cit.zrns a etalemeut of the wrongs and grievances they have borne for several years past in silence, feeling as they do that forbearance baa ceased to be u virtue in their case, and that this public expression of tbeir feelings is due to them selves, their families, and the owners of their vessels, whose property ir daily and hourly jeopardized for want of a proper discipline on boaid their vessels : the captains and other officers being deterred from enforcing proper subordination, from the fear af ruinous and rexstious law suits awaiting theaa in this city, for in no ather part o| the United Staics arc our masters and officers subjected to such prosecutions?at least without goo a end sufficient ground of action. Your committee complain?and where is the shipmaster or mate who dees not eons plain 1 ? of the almost countless number of suits whicb hare been instituted against them in the Marine Court of this city, and that upon the most frivolous pretexts?mere particularly suits at law for assault and buttery. These cases have multiplied ia a fearful ratio} suits too, which our police magistrates would have promptly dismissed as anworthy of notice, had the matter been brought before them ; but by being taken before the Marine Conrt, and a civil actien commenced, and damages laid at a large amount, our captain*, sooner than incur the expense of a protracted smt, have compromised the matter at a severs pecuniary lose to theanaalves. *k?n thorn Ku not hnan - of proof to luliia the charge- Scarcely a day passes without an iastanca occura, where caaes of thia description arc delayed until jaat on the ere of the sailing of ihe vessel, whan the captain ta arreated withoat aay previous notice whatever, and rather than detain the veaael, or loae hia aitaation, on which he depends for a aupport for hia family, thia suit ia alao aettled ; thereby enabling some worthlea a lellew to baltoe on the hard earnings of many month's labor of the ahipmaater or hia officers^ for the truth of which statement yonr committee appeal to oar mere ban ta and othera, who arc acquaiuted with the anhject. Tour committee are satisfied from personal observation that many persona sailing from thia pott, go to sea for the express purpose of provoking an aaaaalt, which will make tne captain or his officers amenable tojgaction at law. 't hey believe these casta are tWlesnlt of eoel premeditation, nrged on by those who. were they the friends of rght and justice, would inculcate principles of subordination among seamen tewards their officers. Your committee also state, that of the numerous disgraceful mutinies whieh have of late taken place, as in the ease of Ihe ships Herald, and alse the Chicora, now lying in this port, they undoubtedly have had their origin mainly in the latitude given to seamsn to disobey orders with impunity. Indeed the perpetration of these outrages have, beyond question, caused the loss of many a fine vessel, which, from disobedience of the orders of her officers by the crew, has gone down with all on board, and none left to tell the tale. Only these who have been on board vessels when in peril by storm, or shoals, and with a mutinous crsw, can judge of the trying and responsible situation in which her officers are placed. The committee wish to ha understood, that they are the friends of good order and good laws properly administered, and that they have no desire to screen those from pnaisbmeat who are really and traly guilty of offending the majesty ef the laws They a he fully persuaded that if their fellow citizens fully understood the trying and dif fieuIt situations in which ship masters are placed they would see the absolute necessity of a promp redress of the grievanees under which they are now suffering They would respectfully solicit their fellow citizens to visit the Marine Court of our eity occasionally, when a trial is pendiog against a ship master er his effieers, and observe what fearful odds he has to contend against, and with what unerring certainty the crew are all brought up to a man to testify against him, as in the case of Captain Schrievar and Mr. Harding, the master and mate of the ski? Henry Clay. Indeed there appeeit to v?? ?? ??vj u?v|*<j ??!?? iw yuici ? c it?a rem of bitterneea ud a degree of animosity direbted against the offitere of ycssols by tkoir crews, which it is most painful to contemplate, and which has been produced by the rery causes of which they complain. Is there anv reason to wonder, then, that our ship masters should experience so much difleuhy in the performance ef their duties, when we consider the east influence of an evil tendency whieh is brought to hear upon theml In consideration ef tbe foregoing circumstances, the committee beg leave to present the following preamble and resolutions: ? Whereas, in s late suit against Captain Sehrievei and Mr. Harding, master and mate of tbe ship Henry Clay, many false and unfounded charges bare been put in circulation which, unless contradieted, will have a tendency to injure ths character and standing, not only of thoje immediately interested in the suit as defendants, but also the character ef shipmasters generally. And, whereas,of late years, the captaias aad otfieers ot this port hare been subjected to numerous vexatious and txpentive law sails whieh have bsan entirely unwarranted by the facts of the eeae, eed utterly groundless in their mature?aad originating, in many instances, not from thoso in wboae names they are instituted, but by a few hungry expectant* who are aver on tho alert to embitter the feelinra ud prrjudit* thafasiads of the laaaiea or mariaori iniut their oflieeis, in order to coma in far a share 1 ?7 the spoils. t And whereas, if this state of things is suffered to eoatiaae aaaeh longer, it will he destrnetire ilike of subordination and discipline en staip beard, ' ire rent the enforcement of orders, and thereby 1 ndaeger the safety of oar Teesels, the lires of pas- ! eagors, and of all on board entrusted to our care ad protection: Therefore ho H Resolved, That we, the ship j nasters end other offieera here assembled, have riewed with the deepest mortification the many die and exaggerated stories sirenlsted, touching . he emoHy of ship masters and their oflleers to , icemen and others nader their command ; aad t lereby beg their fellow cHisens not to suffer their t udgmeats to be misled and their minds prejadiced j igalnst us, when we assure them that in too many { nstaaces these charges are got up for effect, aad c aade to sehserve the interests of those who iiae j heir pockets at ths expense of ship suiters and f heir officers, and who impose upon the credulity , f our seamen upon imaginary wrongs. p Resolved, The.t we are in favor of having every n swfnl commaad promptly obeyed and properly p xecnted; and are at the same time entiiely oppoed to any cruel or unnecessary punishment, when b note nrocn are aiiONyca w will Ml ler noting but what It right, and tubatit to nothing that i wrong. d That iathe eate of Cap'ain Behritrrr a nd the mate, of thip Heary Clajr, wa da not bo- |V ara them to bo guilty of the crimaa imputed 10 || lot. The whole character of Captain Schriever, n obi the lettere we have heard rand this evening, d from the teoiimooy of thoee who are pereoualr aaoaointod with him, ropraaeiit him to he a per- 9 ?a of mild aad forbearing diapoaitioa, and of an y RK I CORNING, MARCH 17, J unexceptionable moral ebinct?r. And we ib?refore believe tbe assault with which he is charged, ha* been greatly exaggerated and misrepresented.

It may be well to state that this transaction occurred before the Tabernacle was bought by the Rev. David Hale, who dont gut "come over" ia that way, cither to the tune of $700, or any smaller amount, but makes them "flourish up" on the legitimate cash principle.

Ann first got a place at Harlem,' but Mrs Rode*, who keeps a corset store ia Division street, near the Bowery, induced ber brother to prevail upon her to leave and take up her residence with said Mrs. R , promising that she would not oaly learn her to do housework, but to make corsets, and would give hrr 94 a month. Tbo brother then went on to New Orleans. Ann contrived a short time with Mrs. R., when the latter continued to have ber bound, a guardian having sprung up for that purpose.

Instead of becoming more willing, or more hardy, as they assert, she grew more perverse, and was hardly worth the keeping. The brother returned from New Orleans, alter a four years absenee, found that Ann knew nothing about sewing, was wretchedly clad, and bad been bound by a man that arrogated to himself, without right, the title of her guardian. He learned, more- < over, that Ann had experienced discontentment en I more accounts than one, for a smart young fellow, 17 years of age, named Charles Rodcs, a son of de- < fendaut, looked upon her growing charms with , an improper desire, and had repeatedly attempted , t? take liberties with her, even going into her bed- | room for that purpose; she cnmplaimrd, but with- , out efleet.

City Intelligence. Trial or Sombs, the Counterfeiter?Thia notorious man will be tried in the Court of Sessions this day. Exposures will take place during this in* vestig&tion calculated to open the eyes of (he public to the wholesale sjstem of dealing in counterfeit money, a* practised by men who have herefolore been considered respectable members of society. Beauty or the Stbaw Bail Ststem.?On the 21st of last month, a man named Joseph Thomas was arrested for attempting to pass a counterfeit $5 note on the Tradesman's Bank of Boston. The note was presented to Robert P. Hewlett, of this city, who succeeded in having Thomas srcured.? One of those accoinpan'soents, known about the Police as "straw bail," and who wears the name of Edward A* Jessel, was taken as security for his appearance to answer the charge. Thomas, as a matter of course, escaped, and on his name being called yesterday, in the Court of Sessions, his recognizances were forfeited. Upon referring to the Philadelphia papers of yesterday, we find that Gessel, in company with Bill Simmons alias Shorty, Jem Gale alias Gallagher, Ike Rice alias Way alias Lame Duek, were all arrested on Monday, on a charge of suspicion of intent to commit a felony, and in default of bail, weie sent to Moyamensing prison. So ends this case of straw bail. Altebatioiv or the Policc System ?After five hours monstrous labor oa the part of the Board of Assistant Aldermen last evening, they were delivered of two whole sections of the new preventive Police Bill. A movement was then mad?j to lay the whole subject eternally on the table, bat for fear they should get out of businem it waa forestalled by an adjournment. The whole bill u a perfect hum Dug.

Crow had sold , i lot of aomething. for an amount that Johmon , hought waa reasonable, but when be came to settle ] ip, a number of other articles were forced upon t um, " at to much a piece," according to the j ' funk" trick. Crow waa compelled to shell back. , tnd Johnaiag pocketed the chaage. A law should >e passed by the present legislature, making these ( nock auction sales a fek?nr, as hundreds of strangers tnd ignorant citizens are fleeced daily by their ait- 0 tonesi and nnjust " tricks of trade." j Paacocious Rooono?A boy named Peter Killen, n company with three ethers, entered the store i >f Charles Cole, 148 West Seventh street, on Monlay afternoon, and while Mr. C. was in the rear part i >f the grocery, they opened the money drawer and ? ibatracted therefrom 8*7 in mdi note* and f 10 in liver coin. Mr- Colea bearing the noiae immediateIr gave chaae and caught Killon, but the othera ea- i aped.

These names are, without doubt, fictitious, as the prisoner is one of the "knowing oner," and no doubt has long boon engaged by the leaders of the counterfeit gang in thin city to exchange their notas. The number of persons connected with these nefarious transactions in this city, would seam almost incredible if published, but it is well known that persons who are holding respectable sitaations in society are in the daily habit of dealing in this kind of money. A case recently transpired at the Upper Poiiee, in which a man, heretofore respectable, was concerned, and which wo bare not hoard of before the Sessions.
