A bright spring sun shone warmly and clear? not a cloud dimned the blue arch of heaven, and the world looked bright and beautiful. From every flag-staff floated the stars and stripes?from every avenue was poured forth the youth, beauty and chivalry of our gay city?all enjoying the day, the scene,''and the occasion. It was a proud day for young America, and commemorated in a worthy manner. The birth-day ol Washington was the proper occasion on which to plant the first liberty pole raised to bear the flag of the Native American parly. He had crushed tyranny and oppression, and established on its ruins a nution of freemen. They have arisen to crush corruption and party domination, and to establish on its ruins, a pure, wholesome and incorruptible city government. At an early hour in the day, the members''ot the several wards assembled at the head quarters in the Eighth Ward, where the procession was formed. The Brigade Brass Band, composed entirely of Native Americans, was engaged for the occasion. At ten o'clock, the line ol march was taken up, and all moved oil'in excellent order, the rear being brought up by the huge pole, drawn by four horses, caparisnned fittingly. After a fatiguing march through the principal streets, the order to "halt" was given, opposite the spot on which the pole was 'o be erected, 111 Wooster 1 street. All the tackle and gear being prepared and [ ready, the pole was moved into position, and after 3 some little delay, the word "pull" was given, and J with a will, the mast was raised in an instant into a the air, amid the crash of trumpets, the cheers of , several thousand spectators, and the waving of d handkerchiefs from every window and balcony, 1 which were filled with lovely women?the fair 1 daughtersand blooming wives of the honest, intel- 1 ligent and hardy sons of " Young America." , The pole having been lodged securely in the bed < prepared for it, the President ol the Eighth Ward } Association mounted the staging, which had been erected directly in front, and exhibited to the 1 crowd the tin case containing the documents and ! memorials to be deposited at its base. This was 1 the signal for another burst of enthusiasm. The ( ease was then fixed in its resting place, and the earth and clay filled in. The ceremony being over, the Chairman called the multitude to order, and desired them to choose their officers. The following were nominated and chosen unani- 1 meusly; ' President, 1 JOHN F. DKIOGS, ESQ. , Vice Presidents, | Messrs. Job Haskell, Messrs. Jacoii L. Fk.nn, Wm. B. Coizkks, Stephen Sammom. 1 Secretaries, 1 Messrs. James Webb and Wood. ] The Band struck up Hail Columbia, and nine j cheers were given with hearty good will. The , President then introduced Mr. Oakley to the meet- ( ing, and in a moment the utmost order prevailed: , Mr. Oaklet.?Fellow Americans?We have met here to-day to commemmorate in a titling manner the birthdav ikf a man ttiw ePrnxlt>af that th? ?sii?? a<' Uo?..nn ' ' ever shone on. We have come together in a common | cause, and in support of noble principles?in unanimity and good fellowship?not with the canker of party spirit, ' or with sore corruption festering in our ranks. No : we | are met as a band of brothers?as a band of freemen to do honor to the name of him who gave liberty to our coun- 1 try, and who was first in war, lirst in peace, and first iu i the hearts of his countrymen? the iiniuoital Washington. (Cheers) Yonder Liberty Polo has been raised by the uuited exertions of tile Native Americans of the Kighth < vVurd. It is the first which has been raised by us, but J hope it will not bo the last. (Cries of " No, no ") We have sprung into existence as if by magic. We have arisen .rom out of a corrupt and vitiated community ; and our labor is to separate the gold l'rem the dross?to elevate ourselves above the grovelling mass, and to rage on endless war against evil and tyranny. Well may the citizens of our city be proud of that emblem or our existence? (pointing to the Liberty Pole) It gives them hope, it gives them a guarantee that we aro at work and are prepared to assert their rights and our own houor. 1 will now read you the list of documents and articles deposited at the base of the pole, them to rest until future ages, when perhaps it may come forth, testimony of the birth of a great, sad migh y revolution (flora Mr. Oakley read the list which will be found at the close of the proceedings.) It is a grateful, and a heartfelt pleasure to every American citizen to lend Ins aid to the erection of such an emblem of liberty, either by his hand, his voice, his money, or his talents. Our act this day renders it imperative on us that we should defend it and the principles upon which it is bated, at all hazards. It is no child's play?already the old corrupt party hacks tremble and grow pale at the shout of Young America, which has arisen in her strength and majesty to hurl them from the seats they have so long and so unworthily tilled. They know that in every cheer we give they hear their death knell. The day has passed, when freemen can tolerate anything which is repugnant to liberty. No longer can we sutfer corruption, party intolerance and foreign influence to govern our counsels. Here, today, we call upon each and every member throughout the city,in the several wards, to come out in their strength and stand by the principles which we have adopted, until we are triumphant We know not what we are doing.? This movement may be but the commencement of a new era. in every vein, in every limb of this vast continent, throughout the old and haughty cilies and countries of the Kast, we may be infusing a power, an impulse which will yet be felt, and which haLT give liberty and freedom to the world. Stand, then by your guru?stand to your arni??watch every man hi* neighbor?mark the man who proves recreant to the principles of an American citizen? hold no communication with him?let him be alone?our task is one of incessant watchfulness?we must guard every passage against the traitor, and by every means we must resist loroign oppression Be but vigilant in the cause, and the shade of Washington will smile upon our etturts. He will rejoice to see his sons resolutely defending the freedom which he had purchased with his blood? and maintaining the liberty of our lam) snd of our nation. Lot this day be a prelude of what is to come, when the ides of April shall come round. A mighty force will come against us?whigs and democrats, party hacks, party corruption, and party gold. But remember the republican party cannot fail?they must tiiumph, or perish in the struggle to rescue our institutions. (Loud and enthusiastic cheers, amid which Mr. Oakley retired.) A song was called for, and in a few minutes the poet, T)e La Ree, was upon the stand, and in a load, clear, manlyvoice, he sung one ol his original songs, to the air of "Rockaway." He was loudly cheered. Mr. Bammons neat read a series of resolutions, which were adopted. lie then addressed the meeting at some length, lie was not, he said, surprised to see that upon this day?a day never to be lorgetten by an American citizen?that hundreds of his fellow citizens had abandoned their ordinary occupations, and assembled here?and for what? What was the cause and what the purport of this gathering? It was to celebrate the birth day, to honor a nan who had fulfilled one of the most remarkable destinies in the history of the world. Although he was possessed of no very peculiar shining talents, yet he had the talent of honesty, of firmness, of confidence in the immutable laws of justice, lie neede I not a bettm eulogy than that he had made a country?the greatest the woild ever saw. The principles advocated and established by that man will vet lie the acknowledged principles of all the world. This was no idle talk. When the native American party commenced this movement, they were jeered at. Their first gathering was but a handful. At first tenthen twenty?and swelling with a miraculous rapidity, muiunuua kckiiuwleugeu inn cause?awl now see our rank*, our strength, our inflnancn. Where ii this to end, and for what purpoie nm wo destined 1 I would rather n?*t spring that our party ihould go down, than that we ahouhl adopt any tempting meaiurea, or trifle or bargain with anyiparty. Mr. 8. here alluded to the report* i circulated by the opposite partiea, that thia new movement waa intended to influence the neit I'reaidential election ; but he openly, and in the name of the party, denied such reports. He warned them against secret enemies? against office-seekers, who came but to share the apoila, and not for aake of upholding the principlea of the party Upon such men let there bo a mark?turn on them and trample them, and crush them until the power to injure j be completely destroyed Upon the banners of the party, as yet, no ataln, no disgrace was attached. If posterity I should erer find the box deposited at the base of the pole, i they would there learn that up to that period at least, our party had been pure and their principles honest. Do not , let ony one deceive you?mark well your conduct for the , very first act of dishonor committed ny the party, would hurl it.back tO|its original element. Let each watch the ' othar, and if any man is found seeking for office or place, thrust him from you, and let him return to the party out of which he came. Ws hare good men among us, and have no need of log rollers. We have , men among us who seek not office, but who, if called to carry out the principles of the party, will not hesitate to accept the trust, regardless of the loaves and fishes. If, to-day we could take a vote, wn should find In our ballot boxes 3.%,000 advocates of our principles-men not brought from the Poor House or the Penitentiary, but honest, independent, and capable citizens. (Cheers.) Above all I warn you to nominate responsible men on vour committees j upon them rests tho honor, the integrity of the party. If theybewiws, honest, and virtuous, we need ii are no fear.of the issue. Choose them carefully, am' let them remember the responsibility. M. 8. then reverted i to the erection sf the first Liberty Pole, which was in i Tryon County, in 177ft, when Sir John Johnson, with his i corps of British troops, opposed the people, and many of them diad defending their rights. lie claimed the honor < of descent from those patriots ?sail upon this occasion he i W Y ( V YORK, FRIDAY MOB elt the fame feeling of patriotism, and the same spirit ol ^position to tyranny, which had animated them in theii truggle. If then the Native American party stand firm n the priaoiples they have adopted, they will carry then tanner victorious in the soring. (Loud cheers.) The new flag was then brought and was run up to the isadofthe vane, the band playing "lite Star Spangled tanner," and the crowd cheering most enthusiastically ? leveral other speakers addressed the meeting until a late rour?the same harmony and enthusiasm Ming kept iif hroughout. A'grand display of fire works, presented by he enterprising (ire king Kdge, closed the proceedingsind givinglnine cheers, thii vast meeting broke up in at irderly ami sober manner.

The propriety of theatrical entertain mentsas a means of rational and innocent enjoy ment?the entire absence of any thing approach ing even to their denunciation in the sermons o Christ or the writings of his Apostles?the hig moral tendency of the drama, were dwelt on wit1 such force and power, as to present to our mind one of the most touching and impressive vindica tions of the stage, to which we have ever listenec or ever read. Then came a very interesting an well arranged series of historical details respect in the rise, and progress of the drama in a|l lands till tin rUy; unit ttie lectur# cioseu wun a nriei siatemeii of Mr. Barry's views respecting the best means fl reforming tne stage, and maintaining it initsful est power of softening, refining, and purifying an< instructing the age. The press by impartial, nigl: toned und educated criticism could, lie urged, d much to achieve this great and desirable end. The delivery of the lecture was worthy of big commendation. In his elocution?ease and dign ty of manner?propriety of gesticulation, and gent ral manner, Mr. Barry is one of the most agreeabl and impressive of lecturers. Indeed, we could nr avoid contrasting with his calmness, modesty sound sense and sound logic, the violence, the rani the vituperation and vulgarity of some of the cler cal antagonists of the drama. They might hav profited, had they been present, by the practici lesson thus taught them by Mr. Barry. The fat is, we are candidly of opinion that Mr Barr should at once enter on the work of reforming th pulpit. What with Mr. Simpson's dullness and in becility, and Signor Palmo'B energy and cntei prise, there is small chance for the poor, despisec troduen-down, slandered, legitimate drama, in th city for heaven knows how long to come. \Vh cannot Mr. Barry, then, get into the pulpit at onct He has more good sense?more logic?more Chrii tian forbearance, amiability, good temper and cln rity. than a dozen of your right reverend Fathers i God, and a whole synod of ranting, reviling, quai relsome preachers whom we could pick out of th muster roll of the churches.

f Curious Developments in Bankruptcy?Comj mercial Bank Operations?A Custom House Officer in a "Fix."?Qui readers will doubles* re( member the sale of the assets of the Commercial 1 Bank, under an order in Chancery, which took " place on the 12th ult. in the Merchants' Exchange. , At that time we remarked that there seemed to be a ' few speculators,who had clubbed together with the { view of purchasing certain notes and mortgages, i trusting to their "luck" for realising any thing out | of them. With some of these s|>ecuIators, it appears, there is a chance, and in working out the ' profit, they will bring to light some curious develop ments in the financial history of the Bank, its President, George D. Strong, and John S. McKib, bin, a well known political character, who is now before the Senate (or confirmation, and who tigur- 1 i ed pretty considerably in tne affairs of the Bank, and , who further has had the "button" of bankruptcy 1 s presented to him in rather a mysterious manner. 3 The creditor* of McKibbin having become satisfied that the certiAcate of discharge in bankruptcy presented by lull iii iuciu, ui'ioiuail very singularly, II noi iriU; dulently, inasmuch as the assignee of the estate hud 5 made no final report, nor was the certificate entered upon the certificate hook ol' the Court- uader the hope that they could by future proceeding*,act sonde this certificate, B they attended at the sale in thu 1 Exchange and pit rchaaed 1 two mortgages executed by McKilibin?one lor $3,660 67, - less $343 hj paid, which wus knocked down to T. C. Moore for $37 60. This purchase excited the suspicion of 1 ' McKibbin, and when the other mortgage for $46,849, less > $j<) paid, was put up, a spirited competition ensued he tweon McKibbin'* friend* and the creditors, who were finally triumphant, having bought it in for $376. ' They next handed the two mortgages over to Thomas i Warner, Esq, and ordered him to proceed to levy on them. Mr. Warner discovered that on tne $46,000 mortgage > the judgment had been|obtalned|over two years, and consequently he could not issue an execution on it without | i renewing it, by a writ of scire facias. Upon the other mortgage he did issue an execution on the furniture and effects of McKibbin, at his residence in Kast Broad way, to which execution he pleaded his certificate in Bankruptcy. To this was replied, that the discharge in ) bankruptcy was fraudulently obtained, and that he Mc Kibbin hail secreted and kept back certain property which - belonged to hia creditors. On Monday morning last, one t ol these suffering creditors appeared before Judge Betta, iu bankruptcy, und having made affidavit ot the fraud al leged, an order waa issued to Commissioner Mulligan to 1 summon the Bankrupt before him, and then and there exf amine into thu matter. We gather that in July, 1841, McKibbin mortgaged to O. - L). Strong, then President of the Commercial Bunk, hisfurit niture at his house in WHliamshurg, horses, carriages, ike., lor $4000 ; but before the time of the mortgage came round, f Strong appliud for the B. B.?button ot bankruptcy : and iu order to save his friend McKibbin, ho sold the said mort1 gugu to oue David Iliads for $500, and the mortgage has not been renewed, as it ought to have been in 1843 , and McKibbin is now in the quiet possession of said horses, carriages and furniture, at his princely mansion in Kast Broadway. At thu same sale in the Exchange, unother of , the creditors of McKibbin purchased a mortgage of this ' man, David Hinds, and he in order to get matters as easy . as possible for himself, has told the creditors thu history of , his transactions with McKibbin, Btrong and the Commercial Bank, all of which will come out during the pending f investigations. In the list of particulars sworn to by Mcj Kibbin, in his schedule in bankruptcy, it appear* that ho, with others, owned 373 lots in Williamsburg, on which he f had executed several mortgages ; some to the Messrs. g Uourums, one to a carman named John Bell, in Spring street, for $1'J,000, who was a very convenient endorserto " the amount of several thousands for McKibbin, Strong it J Co.; but who, it is said, is not the millionaire represented by thu said company. Two mortgages were given en the B same lots to a Mr. Joseph Totten, for over $33,000. This J young gentleman was tho private secretary of Mr. President tl. D. Strong, and is at present, wo learn, a clerk in the post office, on a salarytof about $606 a year ! Mortga ges without number of like character, the creditors alledge have been made to ladies, und others, who could not by any possibility have been at ny time worth the amount " sv hie blare sworn to in the mortgages,as being the conai Joif ration paid. . The creditors are determined to pursue the matter to the '' very last, and to |mnke a public. cx[>ohc of the entire proh ceedings.

The court roon was crow ded to excess, and although there were somi warm demonstrations of feeling on the part of the au dience, yet they were instantly hushed, and the most per feet decorum was observed by all present. The unfortu nate girl is an ornhan, almost homeless, houseless am pcnnyless, since tliis transaction. John Jones, the accused, at this period also took hi seat near his counsel.

Procter, is also conclusive, it being proved that he Ashley, dictated the filling up of the mortgages alter Proctor was dead, and that he left them to be recorded, and to the attorney'of thefestate in thi* city, claimed that he had an assignment of one of these mortgages. In each complaint the prisoner by advice of his counsel, refuses to an swer any question except the formal one of his name, age, occupation, (kc. Other papers in the purjury cases, in the handwriting ol the prisoner, sworn to by other persons, as.'aflldavits, contain statements which the'prisoner well knew to be false, as all the testimony shows. The evi I dence also shows, thut the prisoner handed another power of attorney to Jeremiah .Smith, Jr , purporting to be trom > Uohert Duplex to Smith. This wsb done within the past II year, two years after Duplex died lie also dictated a letter Irom Smith to Duplex in Philadelphia, prisoner informing Smith that Duplex was in Philadelphia. All this oc1 curred alter prisoner knew Duplex was dead That Smith, with tnis power of attorney, the body of which 1 Smith swears was in the handwriting of Ashley, scconi' panied by Ashley, employed Mr. Mulock to prosecute ' certain persons in the name of Duplex. Mr. Mulock upon r being sworn as a witness refused to answer any questions " upon the ground that in that matter he was employed by 1 and wns tlie rnllnstd for said Asblev All thi?s*? mnttfru s show extraordinary depravity in the prisoner. The ob' ject of hail is to secure the appearance of the defendant to answer the complaint upon trial, not to i nahle the prison|* er to escape by the pay meat ol his bonds. From the con 1 elusive testimony in this rase, and defendant refusing to make any explanation, there can he no quration that the * prisoner will not apnear to take his trial, and, therefore, 1 I refuse to discharge him from custody upon hail.
