TH Val. IX.?No. SI.?Whole Ho. MM "TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I beg leu veto give notice to the AMERICAN PEOPLE, pf all classes and condition!, that I un making preparation* to republish, in the cheapest style, and in the weekly quarU) form of newspapers, a diversified and valuable aelection from the RELIGIOUS LITERATURE of Chris tianity, produced by the men of genius belonging to very seAt during the last two hundred years. The reason for attempting such a prqject is plain. Ma terialism infidelity and Immorality, of all kinds, have of late been indusCriouuly circulated throughout the country m under such Imposing names, and to so great an extent, that something must be done to revive the ancient spi rit of Religion an 1 Morals. Lecturers of all kinds?sophists on every subject?the worst and wickedest literature <>f France and England, reproduced in the cheapest forms, have demoralised the age?and upset all the established land marks ol morality and religion throughout the land. It is therefore necessary that something should be done But who is to do it 7 If none other will, I shall. I propose to republish in the cheapest form, in quick succession, a selection from the works of the host and purest RELIGIOUS AU TIIORS, be they Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Catholio, Methodist, Baptist, or any other denomination. Theae selections will not be on religious controversy?but such as treat on practical piety?on good works?and on the ge neral principles of Christianity, witkout the bad spirit of sectarianism. To carry out this project well, I possess a large printing establishment, and the Herald, a daily newspaper, of thirty thomand circulation, now considered the principal * advertising organ in the country, capable of giving hroughout the Union intelligence of these works as they appear. This Printing Establishment comprises 10 presses, 60 printers, 10,000 rounds of type, and a consump tion of about 800 reams of paper, of all kinds, per week. We have eve;y means in our power to carry this project into operation?and we believa that the American public is ready to aid and assist any man, who will throw himself into the breach, and endeavor to revive the ancient piety, virtue, and principles of our forefathers, in opposition to modern scepticism and immorality, which are stealing stealthily over the present generation, under the masks of geology, mesmerism, fonrieriam, finance, neurolovy, transcendentalism, human perfectability, and the whole train of modern philosophy and light literature.

Alderman Pt'imv moved that tlie re|>ori nr prmieu. Alderman Litr. said that tho room asked tor in tho Alm? Home Building might be desired ai a court room tor the Sessions when the Tombs tumbled down, which was very probable from present appearances; anil if such an event should transpire, there would be no place for the utu of that court. Alderman Cahman said that the Society would be glad to take a lease until the Tombs tumbled down. The motion to lay on the table and print was adopted. 1 The Committee on Lamps and Oas reported in favor of lighting Kiremar 'h Hall with gas. Committee on Wharves, Piers, and Slips, reported in favorof w idening and repairing Pier No. tl on the southwest side of Coenties Slip. Aldermsn Cabman said ho thought the Corporation 1 ought to sell the pier, and not expend so much money in repairs. . Alderman Pusnv said that the public piers and slips of the city co t the Corporation over $100,000 more than their income for the past ten or lilteen years, lie hoped that in case ot an equalization ol the representation in the several wards this great expense, would be curtailed, sad ' more attention would be psul to up town improvements.? lie hoped that the public wharves and piers would bedlspoaedol, and the money appropiiated towards paying tho city debt. Alderm in B ilis said the pier required immediate repair nnd that there wrs more amount ot property landed upon . it than on nny other pier in the rity-thatit should be c widened, and the additional cost will not be over $M)0 <1 Al lermcti Cahman said there were a number o( gentles men ready to purchase the piers on the East nver, and that whenever they were placed in private hands they were profitable, but in no instance could they be found so lt when owned by the Corporation. He therefore hoped that they would be sold. ' Alderman Lxesaid he was favorof uptown improve, ments, but he was opposed to all sectional notions, and he therefore hoped that the pier would be repaired without a delay. I , Alderman said it was true that the expenses for the past several years of repairs for piers had been large, : but the city now owned J>3(M),utiO worth of piers. Alderman Cahman said that the most of his property laid in the first ward, and he should always record his vote in favorof the sale of any of the public piers wheneverthe Corporation had an ofler. Alderman Undf.rwood said that the piers in thr first ward yielded al rgerevenue, and even if the expenses . of these repairs, ike. had been more tbau their income, he tielieved the public were satisfied with the ex|ienditure. lie said th it the taxesof this city were heavy, it was true, but that the taxes ol the city of Troy and Baltimore were quite as heavy. He said that if the cor|ioration felt dis9 |Hised to charge the same amount of wharfage that was paid in Boston they would produce a largo revenue, but ' they had refused so to do, as it was considered a tax upon , commerceund upon trade, and therefore they would not adopt such a measure. A Iderman Balis said the whole expense would not exceed fcwoe. Alderman Hatfield said lie " as generally op|K>sed to ' all extensive repairs of wharves and piers, hut he bad examined this pier and felt satisfied that it should be repair ed at once. I The resolution to repair was then adopted, by a \ otc of 1 11 to 3. , The Board here took a recess for supper, whi'h ron?is. ted of rold huui. dry and strong, und corned letf, COBTSe and stringy. f his'reccss isa bore, and should be abulithe.l entirely.

' Alderman Lse opposed any increase ol salaries. Alderman Usor.awooD advocated it, on the ground that the services performed were well worth the amount of advance.

Tue following if the Report: To the Honorable, the Hoard oj Jhrietant Aldamtn of (Ae City of Ntvt York <Hnri.KMKN The reaolution adopted by your Board on tha 4th inatant, ih relation to the Police Department af our city, was probably intended to elicit a Joint reply from the District Attorney, and the undersigned, but although 1 have frequently converaed with that gentleman on the necessity ot a well regulated system of Pelics fbr the city, end have interrhanged opiniona with him a> te the means of accomplishing tha reform which all mod citizens ardently deaire and earnestly demand, we have not jointly committed our view a to writing ; and aa It hM been erroneously supposed that we had arranged a plan, und agreed on all the detaila necessary to put it In Operation?and for other reasons?we have concluded to rw ?l>ond to your reaolution individually. I have deferred submitting a communication on the subject, until the prevent time, with the hope of being nblu to present my views fully, lint as the short interval* if time I have been relieved from active official lutiee have been devoted, tinder tho direction of officers of the State and city governments, to the examination of the intricate accounts which extend through several year a, 1 nm under the necessity of giving a very brief and imperfect reply to your resolution. And as it is very generally admitted that our present Police system ia almost wholly ineffectual for the prevention of crime, and is destitute of the important < rinciples which should form the basis of Police lor a dense and heterogeneous population o( MO, 01)0. I shnll not re|?ent the statement! of other*, nor advance my own view* in relation to existing defect*, ex cept *o tar a* may be necessary in ceniidaring " what improvement in the Police Dapaitmcnt of the city i* required by the want* and interest* of the citizen* on which suhject I entertain the folio wing opinion* I at. The Police Department should be *o organized a* to be in operation without intermission, for the service* of it* member* may be required at any time. At present the night watchmen are the only peraon* who are required to partrole the atreeta, except a few Sunday officer*, and Day Police otticer*, in aome of tho warda, and it i* notorious that moat case* of ahop liu.iig, atealing from hall* of houaea. and the paaaing of countet leit money, occur in tho evening betore the watchmen go on duty, and many burglaries and robberies are committed near the time they leave their poat* in the raorning; and thi* itate of thing* will continue *o long aa the preient *y*tem i* permitted to eiiat, for whilo there are stated period* when neither watchmen nor* air on duty,opportunities are then afforded to avoid detection, and the commiaiion of offence* ia a natural cnnaequrnee. A case in pointoccured recently, and, aa it ia a atriking illuatration, I take the liberty to mention it. Early on the morning of the ittnd inat, two houses in Third atreet, between the Second Avenue and the Bowery,were burglariously entered and valuable article* atolen therefrom, and in one of the houae* aome clothe* in ucloavt were ret on (ire, hut a* the incendiaries fortunately rloaed the rloaet door, the Are (mouldered and expired; nil thi* wan done by the offender* unob served, and no trace ol them, or the atolen property, ha* been discovered, and yet in tlia- ?tr? et.nnd adjoining the row ol buildings where the burglaries and larcenies wera committed, and arson attempted, there ia a sub-watchhouae, and alao a police office. It may be well to atate, aa a proof of the utter want of proper organization of the watcn departmt nt.that the only ordinance which relate* to the time watchmen (ball baon | duty, require*, merely, that they ahali attend on "alternate nights," and the whole matter haa been left with the cap tain a ol the wntch, w ho may keep them en duty at auch limea, at night, as they may consider most neceaaary, or find to be most convi nient;and although they have generally directed their men to go on duty at the same hour, on the several districts, no regard haa been paid to uniform!tv in the time of the several companiea leaving their poata in the morning. '2d. Membei a of the Police department should be con s'antly stationed in nil parts of the cry, that their aervice* may be obtained wherever, aa well as whenever, required for the arrest ol offenders, or performance of other official duties. Many instances might he cited ot felon* being permitted to escape,liecause the police office wa* far di-tant, and private citizen* supposed they had no right to make an arrest, or were tin willing to spend their time or hazard their lives in arresting the offender! and conveying them to tho police office. Besides, the presence of a |>olice officer at the time and piece disorderly condoct commenced, would often prevent the commission of acta that would, but for his presence, lead to most seiioua results ; and police otticer* should, therefore, posse** tho mean* to make themselves known ? such, at anytime, but, with all due deference lor the opinion* of othere, there should lie nothing in their general appearance to in dlcate their employment, for transgressors would thereby have a decided advantage, and would assuredly exercise it ; they could ojiaerve an officer, and would embrace the npportnnitv atf>rded by a temporary absence trom a portion of bis district, to commit depredations. This branch of tun subject is important in anothav point o( view ; for the oertsinty of police officara being on duty throughout the city, without being designated** such, would have a tendency to deter peraon*, particularly the young, from deviating from the path of rectitude, and would prevent the fiist commission of a petty offence, which, if t?cri ctratcd, ami repented, would lead to a car ercalcuinted eventually to transform the timid delinfiuent into a hardened villain. According to the present arrangement, it iathe duty of Colin- officers to attend daily at the Police office*, tad, however great may hi- the emergency which requires their presence and services at Harlem or the Battery, at the Dry Dock or Oreenwich, or in any other part of the city, application mnat he made nt the "Ilalls of Justice," in Centre atreet, or the "Upper Police Office," on the cor. ol Third atreet and the Bowrry, and even then 'here is no certainty of procuring the assistance (ought for,? When the officer* have performed their dntiee for the day. hy waiting at the Police office, or otherwiae, they proceed 11 public exhibition", to public ball* or private partieeto fulfill their i ngngementa as officer*, or they ?pend their time in any way their interests require, or inclination* lead them; they will not devote thetnaelve* to the nervice of the public without compenaation, nor have wo any right to exptct them to do so. .Id. The members of the Police Department thou Id not be permitted to engage in any other hiuine** than that allotted to them In the department. There la no part of this whole antiject moreauaceptihle of demonstration than thia, hut want of time will not admit of elaborate argument, and thefollowing reason* mustauffice for the present:?The knowledge necesaary lor a Police officer to poaaess, of particular claaaea of place* and persona, and of the miiltlfarlotia achemea for committing offence*, and the stratagems resorted to for avoiding detection, can only bo ncquired by clo<* and constant application to the huaineaa of th<- Police department; mid th# character and usefulness of the deportment, as well as tha public good, riquire that Police officers should ho continually under the direction of their stiperior officers, and not be permitted to mingle and associate with all classes of persons, iodiscrinately, nor to resort, at will, to all kinds of places. It ia unnecessary^ and would be extremely disagreeable, to mention particular cases which show the propriety aa>d necessity of adopting the rule here recommended. Let it suffice that it i* our duty to guard against what men may do. A* long a* the watchmen for the night and the Polico officers for the day constitute separate deportments, both will be miserably deficient for all the purposes for which a Police is required. The pay received by watchman ia not sufficient lor the maintenance of their families, and those ofthem who labor hard during the day, and thereby become much fatigued, are not the moat suitable persona (or watchmen; while those who lounge about in the day time, are very improper person* for the duty. But bowi ver suitable the peraona may be who compose the watch, they must leave their posts at statpdtime* in the morning to pursue their ordinary business, whatever benefit might result from their remaining on their posts; and ail the inlormntion they may have received of threatened, or anticipated depredations, ia rendered useless by their not having immediate successor* to whom they may communicate'he information If the wholetime of the officers .IimuM Kb -niriivml in the nuhlic service, their entire ra numeration ought to be 'ferived Irom the public treasury. 4ih. Follce Officers should receive their appointment Irom persons not elected to olltce by the people, nor CUT 'irtutra for their suffrages- for rramoa ao universally l:nown 'hat there can bono berm in making the *tlggea don her , and hut little necessity for stating why It la i mde guard against the Police officers being all men of the M-nr political party, and aome of them not the beat men in that party, and that no Improper Influence growing ouf of the manner ofthelr appointmotit may be exercised uvrr them, they ahould be appointed by Commia ionara, to be Mleotra with special reference to thia obiect. an! ror their knowledge, Integrity, peraevering habits. and peculiar fitness for the performance of the | ''utiea v hich would devolve upon them and that the responsibility might not he too much dVTuted, the number ofi 'ommiaaionera ahould ba very limited. 5th.

The men be longing on atationa ahould be able to repair to, and return from, their reapective poat* in a ahort apace of time, and the facility and promptneaa with which it would attimee be neceavary to aaaemhle the Police force in particular auctions of the city, would be imprartlcahle without a diviaion of the city into districts Indeed, without thia pro" viaion, the foregoing anggea'.iona could not be adoJNed; nor, If adopted, cariied into successful operation^ The diatrict ay stem waa introduced into the Watch Dm pnrtnient from sheer necessity, and the number of diaIricts husbeen increased with the incieaae of nopnlatian; ' ut this is the only consistent feature of th? department, uid an expose of the'long continued practice at the watcliliou?e* will not only Illustrate the part of tha subject r.ow under consideration, hut will confirm the general views herein contained.
