Sooth atreet. > R K I 3RNING, DECEMBER 21, Albany. i (Correspondence of the Herald.) i Ai.ha.ny, Dec. 17th, 1H43. 1 Movements of the Regency?Their Intrigue* and r Effort* to monopolize every thing?Our Legitlaturc. Although we are more than two weeks oil' from the time of the meeting of our Leginlatuie, yet the most active preparations are making by Croswell and Marcy to get things in a right trim, and exactly to suit themselves, by the tirM Tuesday in next month. Croswell, as you well know, is a cunning, crafty, insincere politician, and has been the means of sending many a better meaning, but lets ex|?erienced man to the tomb of the Capulets long before his time. He is now at woik upon the Old Admiral, and at any sacrifice is determined to defeat him and his clique of barn-burners and disorganizes. The game is to make Seymour, an old Conservative, or Allen, who has no mind of his own, or Mr. anybody else, Speaker of the House, and from present appearances the success of the State editor is somewhat more than probable. You will recollect that he was recently on a visit to your city, and while there had repeated interviews with some of the members of your delegation upon this subject, and if reports speaks true, has obtained their pledge to back him ! ui> in his war upon old Thunder of Herkimer. At ail events, he is in excellent humor and spirits, and i among his friends speaks boastingly of what he | will do before January 3d, 1HH. ISow I know of' no man better calculated, in every particular, for | succeeding in matters of this kind than this same Croswell. To the most cmiuumniate impudence, he uniites affability, plausibility, caution, apparent honesty, and immense self possession; never shaken, never thrown off his guard by any counter movements?never deceived. ATalleyrand in diplomacy, a Robespierre in feeling and in heart. This is a strong picture, but to all acquainted with the man its truthfulness will be apparent. Take a specimen of his management in the case before us of the Old Admiral. In conversation with any of the newly elected members of the Assembly, who may be supposed to entertain a friendly feeling for the bold reformer, he partakes of their admiration , for his great talents?for his unbounded honesty? but, then, he is too radical in his notions about men and government; like Sam Youni?, <^f the Senate, he is quite impracticable, a mere visionary ?\i\ linn u flnmnirnnrnn Wi?ll fhf? uninitiated member begins to feel the truth of all that's been said, for it is made apparent to him. in more than a thousand instances hy the man of the Argus, and he joins ia with an expression of opposition to the Admiral. To make Speaker of this man, runs on the Albany .manager, will he a airwt reflection upon the honest portion of the democracy ot this State, beside ; and here I liuve something important to communicate, and I tell it to you in great confidence, because 1 know you are to have great in! fliience in the Legislature?the Governor don't want ' him appointed, and you are a friend of the Governor's ?he would regard it as a censure upon his past noL ltcy by the house, and in this light ii will be regarded , throughout the State. Again, Mr. Hoffman is i physically disqualified for the office by a painful malady, which renders it necessary that he should , leave his seat every few minutes; and then again, what kind of committees would you have! where 1 would you and all the other talented democrats find themselves! Why, on the tail end of some unimportant committee, without the power of effecting any good to yourselves or for your counties. ; Barn-burners will be the leaders, and y ou, of course, must content yourselves by following iu their wake. Now, this is not fancy?it is fact; it is the argument actually used by Croswell and his worthy friend Marcy every day forthe defeat of Old Thunder; and, strange as it may seem, it is doing up the business for the Admiral with those who don't know the qualities and peculiarities of the man of the Argus. But this is not all; the mere defeat wouldn't give the all-sufficient satisfaction i to the organ of democracy. Mr. lloflman is what is called the father of the stop-and-pay policy of | 1812, and the success of any other man at this i lime .o??r him would l?e seized upon by Cros: weBL (who is up to his eyes in speculation,) ! and thundered forth as undeniable evidence of the unpopularity of that measure with the people; and then, friend Bennett, where will he the reform improvements of the Admiral 1 What hope for a Convention? What hope for any improvement of the constitution by the Legislature? None?nonfat all. The defeat of lloHman for Shaker will bring in its trail all the evils here mentioned, and many more whic h are being worked into form by Crosswell, Marcv, Varian, and company The same clique interest is pressing for the appointment of James It. Rose for Clerk to the House, hut here they will meet with a certain defeat; Mr. Wales, the late Clerk, will unquestionably be the man. The very clever and gentlemanly Mr. Sandford, one of your delegates, was up here a few days since to sec the Governor, and?Croswell! lie is popular with all who know him, and deservedly esteemed for his worth and strict integrity. You may expect to hear from me regularly throughout the winter, being now comfortably ensconced in my old quarters, to which place I have to request you will send me your daily Herald. Smith, Jr. Late From California.?By the way of Vera Cruz we have received the following interesting letter from Monterey. It contains something new. Monterey, Upper California, > Oct. 16, 1843. 5 Sir?I some time hack wrote to you for the weekly Herald via Mazatlan. I have received a few numbers. The two first numbers sent to California bv our Consul at Mazatlan, were nut in charge of Don. L. Celes, supercargo of the Mexi I.?I. f~l ?tk them. 1 am happy to say that no other supercargo or captain on this roast would have committed so pitiable an act. Supposing you would like to see a shipping list of this port, I send you one for ten inonths.ending this month. By this you will see that the Yankees liavc the whole foreign trade of this coast. A great ileal of property in the Mexican vet?el6 belong to . Americans and others. TheYe are four large vess sels here belonging to Boston.whose return cargoos " in Boston,with value of vessels, are worth J?50(),0rt0. j The whole value of American property in California now amounts to a large sum. A Boston cargo worth there #20.000, returns home a cargo worth $70,000, although to the owner this is not all profit, as the expense and interest of a three years' voyage are greater than the first coat of cargoyet the profit to the industry of the United States is 300 per cent. As these goods are of home inanu. facture the trade is a ^ood one to onr conntry. You will see that this trade needs the protection , of our national vessels, and that we ought to have a man-of-war always on this coast. Although for the whole year an English trader has not been in this port, yet that government has this year named a Consul who is now living here. Within a few years Imck several have in Washington received a commission of United States' Consul for California ? one never left the States, and one almost reac hed here. Both found out the fees of ollie.e would not nav thee.xi?ense of even entertaining a few of their _ Lai ?-_ ?;~u. ?ii .i.?m . < (Minify r? mm r ra VVIIW Iiiifiiii I an uu HI* III , ?IICJ | therefore declined coming here. Cilifoinia, for twenty months, liar had no rain. As her chief exports are hides and tallorv, the Hanchcros have not been able to shin nnythin summer, as they could not kill their cattle, they heing so poor. "The trading vessels have therefore done a bad business thin year, nnd can fake home hut a few hid^ before 1^15. The new general, Miohcttorinn, with his officers and troops, s*nt hv Santa Anna, have atlast reached the capital of California. The General is now holding juntas toframe some new lawsfor the good of the country. It is proposed, 1st. To keen an officer continually" on [>oard of every vessel while she remains here, to prevent smuggling. This will be of much service to the fair trader. 2d. To forbid any ship touching at any port other than this before sh? enter* her cargo at the Custom House. 3d. To prevent supercargoes f rom retailing goods on board. 1th. To stop the killing of otter for some years. The affair of Com. .Tones' taking Monterey is mostly forgotten The last time the officers of his squadron were here theyenioyed themselves with the people of ihe country. We have now in port Hon. I.ord Ceorge I'aulct, who placed Victoria's d ig in Oahti, in the place of the King of the Islands. His mperior officer lias given the Islands up again. So boln of the nine days' wonders have now gone by. Lord George Paulet contrived to keep his power some months longer than Com.

J<).?A Poinn Bonn l)norrr.i on ins way to Sink Hinu.?Notwithstanding that publication after publication lias been made of the roquet of this clais who iixiV-st our city, yet scarce a day passe* that some uufortunate countryman is not duped by their vile practices. Yesterday morning the attention of Mr. Richard Walker, of rortsmouth, N. II., who had just landed from the Norwich boat, was attracted by one of these knaves, who picked up a pocket liook thnt he had pre. viously thrown down, and represented that he hnd lound it on the paxrment. Sir. Walker, supposing that it might have belonged to some one of his lellow passengers on board ol the boat, and perceiving it filled with bauk notes, on solicitation of an associate of the man that found it, pave the sum of fifteen dollars for its |>ossussion, intending, us he says, to advertise it for the knowledge of the owner. As soon as the money wis paid, the fellow vanished, and he then proposed to the person who reconimended him to take it to go with him lo Me ponce ana giv c nonce 01 m> uauim posm-msiou 01 it. 'I'llim he refused, und upon looking at the contents of the pocket book, which he found to contain nothing hut worthless money, he culled the aid of citizens, who alter a severe struggle caused the arrest of the accomplice, who was lodged in the police ottice, where he gave the name of Win. II. Jones. Justice Matselt very properly held him on the stutute relative to passing " false tokens,'' and orJered him to be fully committed lor the oflence, in default of bail in the kuiii of $1,000 The Court of Heaslous have power under this statute to send the offender to the stato prison for set en years Such a disposition of a few of the numerous droppers that throng our city. would soon make them resort tu some honest employment for a livelihood. Another Daring Bcrolart.?The house of Mr. F.. C. Richards, 770 Broadway, corner of Ninth street, was broken into last night through the rear basement by some freebooters, after scaling n high fence. The robbers, alter breaking some three or four locks and doing considerable damage to the furniture, decamped, taking with them all the silver and plate they could lay hold of, aUo a new beaver cioth overcoat lined with yellow and brown wool len plaid, leaving the doors of the house wide open ! Where wero the watchmen ? And what has become of the patrol police ? False Pretences.?'The recent excitement and rrpoj?' relative to the rascalities of the gangs of swindlers that infest our city have inspired those who have been defrauded with courage to apply to the proper authorities for the arrest of the knave* who have defrauded them, llosua Winchester, druggist, ol 10H John street, applied to Justice Matsell for the arrest of Jonas M Ball and Wm. M. Bartlett, of &3 Courtlandt street, for obtaining a billof drugs, Uc. from him, valued at (113 jl, under the following circumstances. Ball called on the 10th of October, and purchased the goods for cash, and ordered them to be sent to 132 Cudar street, were the money would be paid. The goods were, delivered, and n man named Philip T. Winslow was found there, acting as clerk, lie referred the parties to Bnrtlett, of 63 Couitlandt street, who represented Ball to be responsible, and between the two, Mr. Winchester wns defrauded of the amount of his bill. The papers wen'sent before the Grand Jury. Let every man who has thus been defrauded by lirms representing themselves in business, and giving references, go immediately before the police or the Major, und secure the arrest of the parties. This course will miike New York too hot tw hold them. House Thief.?A valuable horse belonging to Stephen 8. Clark, of 138 Greenwich street, while stuiiding opposite his premises on Tuesday, was taken away by a black fellow named Isaac Scudden. He drove him t* the Battery Hotel, kept by Peter M. Bayard, where he says he (n >ui> Ilia wlll'tl Ml' li?\ S?rd Rll?I)eC,tiHIT that he had obtained jtossession of thehorie in an improper manner, caused him to he arrested and the horse delivered to his lawful owner. The black fellow was fully committed.

Verdict of Coroner'* jury?"suicide by drowning." Hi dden Death ok a Sailor.?The Coroner was called to examine the cause of the death of a sailor, named Peter Clark, who had recently arrived fram St. Thomas, hut who died very suddenly 011 Tuesday last. Verdict? "death by cholera morbus." Court of Common Plena. Before Judge Infills. Wednesday, Dec. '20.?Thi- Frtrmeri' Bank nj' Canton vs. J/rriry Ely.?This wa< an action on two drafts drawn I.. fl'fil.,.,. ?*n I..fon.hint in 1M11 fur ?1000 rash, payable in New York. The dclence set up, that the drafts had been paid since issue km joined, but the < 'ain't ruled out all the evidence on the point, with the oft'er to the defendant to enter a plea of puis danrire, continuance, which the defendant refused to do. He con tended that by the lawa of Ohio, the bank had no right to is*uc the notes give n .n payment for the purchase of the drafts, an act having pasted in 182(1 to close up its altaim. Also, that the exenange allowed by the Bank on the draft*, was from two and a half to five per cent less than the regular rate for ?o days, and this the counsel for the defence contended amounted to usury?more especially, as the bank was selling drafts on N^w York at the time at a higher rate of exenange. The Court, in charging, observed that there was no pi oof that the act passed by the state for the closing up the concerns of the Rank had been accepted, or was passed at the request of the Rank, and therefore that part of the defence must lie disregarded. But if the jury believed that the Rank intended, by paying a less rate than usual, to gain more than 6 per cent on the transaction, that it was usury and the defendant would be entitled to a verdict. The jury not having agreed at the closing of the Court, they were directed to bring in a sealed verdict to-morrow. Kor plaintiff', Charles Judson, Ksq. For defendant, Messrs. Stephen J. and D. D. Field. William Kiiuir vs. Charltt Ir. Tlyh?r \ others.?The plaintiff entered into a contract with the defendants to ship a crew on board the bark Klorian, under which contract the men were to proceed to sea or nothing could be recovered. A crew was put?.n board, and the vessel proceeded on her voyage as far as Sandy Hook, on the iotli March last, but encountering a gale, the pilot, to save the lives of the crew and the cargo, arn her ashore. The crew, without permission, returned to the city at the first opportunity, against the express directions of the captain and mute, who |wanted them to save the cargo and ship gearing. On the day following that on which the wreck took place, and before the news had arrived that the crew had deserted her, the defendants presented thoir bill for (IS.s, and were paid. The action is brought to recover back the amount. The case will b? continued tomorrow at the opening of the Court. Before Judge Ulihoeffer. Dec. 19.?A writ of habeas corpiii was sued out by Mr. Shufeld, counsel, in la-half of John Jones, a colored man, to bring before the Judge the two Albinos now exhibiting at Tcalc's Museum. Jones claiming them as his children Mr. Nile* appeared as counsel on behalf of Joseph Mannah, a colorecl man residing in New Jersey, who claimed them as his children It appeared that Jones had hired out his children some two years and a half since, for a limited period, which expired in Octolier last, to a man by the name of Huited, for exhibition, and had not seen Husted or the children sincc. Jones, his neighbor, is acquainted with his children, and identified them as his children. On the other side, Mannah and his neighbors were equally positive that they were the children of Mannah Both i>uitios are witnesses no doubt honest in their opi nions." The case was put over till n?xt Tuesday, when the whole matter will, no doubt, bo cleared up. It is certainly extraordinary that there should he two sets of Albinos, boys same age, and so near alike as to defy the closest observation to distinguish them?thay are certainly a curiosity.

Thomai Flanagan, an old offender, impleaded with a young man named John Jonen, convicte 1 ot burglary in the first degree, in enter iug the dwelling of Dr. Oreen, 399 .Broadway, *u arraigned lor Hentenee, and consigned to the ?tate priion at Ming Sing fur 14 years and fix month*. The court in pacing tin* sentence, atated that there wa* another in dictineut against liim for a similar ofl'ence. under either of which, they could sentence him for life, but fioai the tact that pardon almost invariably followed such sentence, they have commutedit to the term before fixed. John Jones, a young man, impleaded with Flanagan in the indictment*, entered a plea of guilty, and the court sentenced him to the state prison for ten year*. Colored Burflari.?A mulatto man, named Alexander Ray, and n black fellO'Y who called himself John Smith, w (-retried on a charge of burglary in the first degree, in entering the house of C. S. Bonton, 341 k'.ast Broadway, ou the morning of the 9th of November, by forcing open the basement door. They were arrested by officers Drinker and Krack, while on) the point of issuing from the basemunt with a small quantity of clothing that thejr had stolen. On searching the premises wlicie they had resided, various articles of clothing were found that had been stolen from fourteen different dwellings. The jury returned an immediate verdict of guilty. The court ordered the pi miners to be airaigued for sentence, and stated that there were eleven other indictments against them for burglary in the first degree, on each of which they would probably he convicted if brought to trial. That under this conviction, it was in the power of the court to sentence them to the state prison for the term of their natural lives, but as pardon usually followed such sentence, they should not impose it. The Recorder then alluded to the importance of the arrest of the accused, aa it was evident from the knowledge in possession of the com t, that they u ere among the most desperate and daring of the burglar* that had iceently been detected in our city, lie then sentenced Alexander Hay to the state pri sou for 2JI years and six month*, and John Smith for 72 years and six months, remarking that iu all probability that would terminate tfieir natural lives.

Devoe was arrested soon after, and a trunk containing a'portion of the clotliiiig found at a house in Newark, where it was said he had left it. The kev of the trunk was also found in his |iorkct, and several pawn tickets of other portions of the stolen clothing found on the floor of the room where he was arrested. The defence, conducted by J. S. Smith, Esq.,proved hyjohu N. Curti?,of Newark, ana Wm. H. f ink, of Belleville, N.

Beach was put ui>on his trial for a libel on Benjamin H. Day, ptihlisliird in the "New York Hun" on th? morning of the 7th ol August, 1643. The publication of the libel was admitted by I lie counsel for defence, when Jox.ts II. rmr.i.ips. Ksq., opened for the proiecation, and stated that the liliellous article held Mr. Day up to public contempt and ridicule, and was therefore calculated to create a nreach of the peace and was in violation of the law governing the offence of libel. The libellous article was then read to the jury, as followa:? Titr Co.isriBAcr C'*sr..?In giving the particular* on Saturday relating to the charge nihde at the Police Office against Hamilton, the black broker, (by the wati thebrokers deny that Hamilton is a broker) and Dergen, of an attempt to detraud the Atlantic Insurance Company of large amount ot money, we promised to ascertain and in torm the public w ho whs the individual that bad ventured to become bail for the Negro to the amount of $10,000.? There have been so many escapes from juatice II.rough the instrumentality of what is termed "straw bail," that the community are getting somewhat sensitive upon the subject, and show a tout as much anxiety to know who the bail is as who the prisoner is. In thia case, we learn that lteiiiamin H. Day is the man who has taken the responsibility of bailing the negro. We should suppose that the fact of Mr. Day'a being himself held to bail to the amount of fAOOO in some anita pending against him, and also being bail to the amount of ten or llfteen thousand dollars more for other partiea. would have deterred a prudent man from going in any neeper. lie diuii, as wr learn irom me record* 01 me different (-ourt*. stand at hail in various cases to an amount considerably exceeding f'20,000, probably nearer $30,000. Whether Mr. Benjamin H. Day ha* the contcience to swear that he is worth enough to justify in inch an amount, we cannot nay: but we apprehend that one thing is certain, if he should have the whole amount to fay, ft might puzile him a little to raise the ready caih, and would at all eventi, make something of a hole in hit fortune. The course lately pursued by Mr. Day ha* given his friends 110 little pain. His intimacy and constant inter course with this black fellow, and with a former police reporter by the name of Horatio 9. fiartlett, the recipro cat sympathies and bosom friendship existing between the three, have caused deep regret on the part of the friends of Duy. He ha* respectable connexions, and might, by pursuing an elevated and honorable course of conduct, and being more careftil about the company he keeps, maintain a re?pectable stand in society. Out for soma mouth* past, Day, the nngru, and Bartlett have been like the Siamese Twins, or perhaps we should say, like Siamese triplets. The neiro became security to establish a paper tur liartlett, and bay became bail to keep the n* gro out of prison on uncharge of swindling, and to keep Bartlett out of prisen on sevrral charges of having published itifamout libels. Morning, noon, and night, have often found these loving friends together. The black fel< lo v would call on his chaate friend Bartlett, and they both together would call on Day Sometimes the order of csdling would be n-versed. an<f then again the three would be seen locked nrm-in-arm and marching t? and fro in the streets. Few hours ever punted over their heads without a meeting. In due time the public will have laid before It, on the trial of sundry suits in the court* of law and equity, the result of some of these interviews. Till then, have patience. As we have before said, Mr. Day's relatives, who are respectable, are much grieved that he should allow himself to tall into such company. They fear that his nice sense of honor may be bluuted ; that his former correct habits may|be contaminated?that his high intellectual endowments may be turned to bad account; and that it will not be very much to his credit to be figuring as bail for his r.umpnnions?black and white, at the Police Office. We would in all kindness appeal to him as one not yet wholly lost, to have respect forthe foelings of his friends and for himself, and to cut loose from such associates while the doors of escape are yet open. We entreat him to remember the fable of " noor Trav." In regard to the proceeding* at the Police Office, we perceive that effbrt* were made to bribe or intimidate other paper*, ax well as this, with a view of suppressing any report of what had transpired there. We should have add edthat Mr. Day. the negro's bail, also becamethe neiro't messenger to bring us the threatening epmtle which we published on Saturday. Whether tne "black prince" made him trot round with similar message* to the other paper",|we have not learned We hope not, for hi* own credit. But be that a* It may, we. entreat him again and again lo mend hi* way*, and sclcct hi* companion* with better taste and more discrimination. Ills character, we can assnre him, will not suffer from following our friendly advice. Mr. f>?; Witt, one of the counsel for dcfencc, then proceeded to open the case on behalf ol the accused. He dissected the libel In sentence*, and tillered that In all th? important point* it would be sustained Dy evidence to be i> re seated to the jury, and that their drlence would be the truth or the libel, and that It was published for good motivi'* and luttilisble cods.
