E NE N. The Great American Republican Man Meeting at the Merchants' Exchange yesterday Wall street Thrown Into Intense Excite, ment?Great Enthusiasm for City Reform ?Triumphant Progress of the " Natives." Notwithstanding the threatening and diaagreeable aspect of the wdatHer, a tremendous assemblage of the Native or lleform Party took place in Wail street, opposite the Merchants' Exchange, at 2 d'cloek, yesterday afternoon. Never since the occasion on which Mr. Webster delivered his great speech on wliig principles has MTall street witnessed such a multitudinous gathering. The street was almost completely blocked up by the dense crowds, so that the passage of vehicles was almost altogether impassible. All in front of the Exchange and on the opposite sidewalk was thronged by masses of human beings, extending the whole length of the block. There was a fair representation of all classes of the citizens?merchants, mechanics, tradesmen, sailors, butchers and cart men, all of whom appeared animated bv the areatest en thusiasm. The meeting was organized by the appointment of the following officers president. OEM. JOHN LLOYD. YlCC PaEilDENTI. Lora Naih, Jonathan Thompson, Kobt B.Coleman, Jamei C. Forrester, John J. Boyd, Alonzo A. Alvord, Wm. B. Draper, Win. J. Roome, John Brower, Edward C. Boughton, Jamea Webb, Daniel 8. Miller, Eli as Q. Drak", Wm. C. Kaggerty. Samuel F. Mott, Wm Co*, Edwaril Prime, Marcus Mitchell, Charles Wcdftt, B. L. Woolley, Nathaniel Weed, R. F. Shiftier. Secbktabies. Wm. H Wilson, John J. II. Depuy, John B. Derbrow, Henry A. Fay, William Baker, Thomas M. Woodruff, John Culver, Benj. 8. Whitney. Charles Sutton, After the meeting was called to order by the Chairman, Mr. B. S. Whitnky mounted the stand, and read a series of resolution, expressing in forcible language the great principles of the party, and their earnest determination to sustain their candidates at the ensuing election. The reading of these resolutions wus repeatedly interrupted by loud and enthusiastic cheering | I After Mr. Whitney had finished the reading of the resolutions, there were loud cries of " Savage," " Savage." Mr. Savage then stepped forward, and wus greeted by three loud cheers. He said? My friends?1 suppose I am here now in consequence o( the adoption of the one good policy which the meet ing intend to pursue, that ot bringing forward the feeblest troops first, reserving for the last the choicest and most effective. (Cries ol " no ! no !"?" you're the boy for us"?" go it when you're young," and cheers.) We have met inl umost every ward, anil crowds every where have flocked round the American Republican standard. (Cheers, and cries of " aye, and under it will conoueror ilie"?" tne American Hag for ever !") We now" come down to the heart of this great commercial empeporium?we come to ask the merchants whether they will sustain us in our efforts for reform, and the appearance of this meeting indicates that the merchants ol New Vork will respond to our call, and give us their cheerful and efficient aid. (Cheers.) Kach party is now fairly in the field, eacli with an army marshalled under the respective leaders. The whigs have hoisted their banner with the name of Morris Franklin? the democrats have got up JohnCoddington, and the American lie. publicans have thrown to the breeze the name of James Harper. (Tremendous cheering?cries of " lie's the people's choice"?" He's the boy!"?"Three cheers for James Harper!") (Jentlemen, let us look at the character of these nominations in a political point of view. I do not intend to speak of any of the candidates personally. They are gentlemen, all of them, so far as they are personally regarded. But let me say a word respecting them as |>o. litical men. We have a right to discuss their principles, now that they*are placed before the people ol New York for their suffrages. The whig pirty have acted wrong in putting forward Morris Franklin. I commend him because he stood firmly against that school law. (Cheers.) I honor him for it, but 1 will not vote for him as the candidate of the whig party?a party who dare not own that as such they are in favor ol our principles with respect to the school law. 1 hope that no American in this city_ citizen on tfie' school law question. 'I'llat party as such, is opposed to the old school law, and In favor ot the present one, and therefore it must expect nothing but opposition from us. (Loud cheers.) As a proof of what 1 have said, look to their organs?look at their'newspapers ia this city. Is there one of them that will sustain the American Ucpublicau party in the effort to bring about a repeal of that law ! Not one. But on one side of th< mouth thev speak "native," and on the other Irish, (laughter,) in the hope that they'll thus catch both. But they'll nil'IOUl llieir miBlHlve Ull llir pill Ul ,-iuill. ^ucria?a urn of " that they will!" " give it 'cm, old boy !") The Ameri can Republicans will not be found in the same ranks with Roman Catholic politician*, no how they can fix it (cheers.) How is it with regard to the Democratic party ' A few weeks ago, if you asked a democrat who,his candidate was, he would have replied,without hesitation, " it Is Thomas Jeremiah." He was the man?he was the choice of the democrats of this city. But it happened that he had the honesty, patriotism and fearlessness to say in the assembly chamber at Albany, that he was opposed to the present school law, and he brought in a bill there to have it repealed in some of its worst leatures. Well, aa soon as it was known that he was opposed to th* odiou? school law, the Roman Catholics went to Tammany Hall, and said, "if you nominate Thomas Jeremiah, we'll run another Carroll Hall ticket!" (Cheer*?" that's the fact"? " that's their game"?" no you dont"?1 and is not this susceptible of the clearest proof I (" Ves it is"?" give it 'em ") When the narty met at Tammany Hall not a single voice could be heard in favor of Thomas Jeremiah, although two short months before the party was unanimous in his favor. (Cheers ) How can you account for his being cast aside in this manner, but on the supposition that they were afraid of foreign influence in the city ol New York ? They then took up Mr. Coddington. He is the representivr of this party that so fears foreign influence that they at once abandon their favorite candidate, because he has rendered himself obnoxious to a set of Papists. (t liters) Can we vote for a man that represents such a party? ("No, no"?"see him first"?"never") ?I say "no" too. There is another matter on which 1 have a word or two to say. The subject of municipal re foran. (Cheers ) This is one in which you and I and all are deeply interested. We have seen the city misgoverned for years past -the taxes increased-and from year to year every thing going on from bail to worse. Little more than two years ago the whig party raised a great cry and said, " let us into power ana we'll set the matter right. We'll give you a good police?we'll clean your streets effectually." Well, the people thought they would give them a trial And they did. They elected them. The whig* had made also a] great cry about the iniquity of giving contractu io miwien 01 inn cummon < uuucn. l nev were bitterly opposed to that. They would never violate tho city charter in that way?never. Well, what did they do ? They got into power anil full onehall of the members of thia honeat, upright, patrio tic, fair promising whig common council wera con firmed in contracts with the city. (Cheers and hisses ) Thus they fulfilled their promises. Thua they adhered to their pledgee. They said they would aavc $H,000,'a year in the matter of cleaning the streets. But when they came into office, we And, that, instead of doing thia, they expended more for the purpose of keeping up an army of foreigners, who should be underthe control of the whigs, so that whig power might be perpetuated. Tho democrats last spring we put into power. What have they done f They said it was a rascally thing in the whigs to take $#S,0(X) a year to clean (he streets, when it could be done for half that sum. Well, what did they do I Why they spent upwards of $100,000 a year under the pretence of cleaning tne streets. Were the streets ever in a more filthy condition than now ? (Never ) Theyfmade great|proCessions of honesty. One ofthe Aldermen offered a resolution that no man should lie appointed to office who was not of good moral character. (Hoars of laughter.) Well, look at their appointments. I admit there are some good men, of decent character, amongst them?but certainly nr?? nnnilffl. in feult thf? hf>fln (Ofpat Initcrltfor \ Unvaral member* of the Common Council are at this time concerned in contrncti with the city. Thus we have tried both parties, to our entire satisfaction. (Laughter, and responses of " that we have.") Doth have deceiver) us; and I believe the people of the citv of New York will not trust them again, at least not until they have tried the Native Americans? (cheeri?and a voice?" and they'll never afterwards,"cheers ) We have endeavored to put before you the very best men in the?ity. James Harper is the leader.and I challenge an v|man to put his linger on a single act of that citizen's whole life which should unfit him for a seat in the City Hall at the head of the city government ? (cheers ) He is n man of the most unblemished character. I doly the slightest contradiction on this point.? lie is a business man?the successful architect of nil own fortune, which places him in a situation altogether removed from any temptation to prostitute his ottice for mercenary ends?(loud and enthusiastic cheers i If elected, he will, I am fully confident, conduct the afTairs of this city with integrity?with zeal?with industry?with success?above alt with honesty?(loud cheers.) Besides all thi*, remember that he is the candidate of the reform party _snd if it succeeds we a ill have reform?(cheers )? Hentlemen, whig*, democrats, merchants, I ask you, will you give the American Republican ticket a handsome support on the second Tuesday in April?(loud cries of "we will"?"we will") All in favor of going the whole A.iierican Republican ticket signify it by saying "aye." (Hern tho universal shout of "aye" was deafening, and made the granite pillars of the noble building, in front of which the meeting was 'congregated, ring againjand again ) Mr. 8avao>: here retired amid great cheeriruf. Hero there were loud cries for "f'oloilel Snow"? "Snow"?"Snow." t'olonel S*ow having made his appearance, said:?Fellow citizen*, it is a cheering and ennobling sight to see wtm9f?mmmssssssssssssaBssassssasBB W V < EW YORK, FRIDAY MO *uch ft vaft assemblage here collected on the subject ol reform?to tee that wu hare renounced the name* of whig and democrat and merged ourselves In the Native American party. Hitherto wo hare been lighting one against the other -against the hdrlett catue ot our real lnteretta, and tor those interetta we are now ready to light, con'end ahd bleed. We have taken our enemies by surprise, and tiy that act vte hare shdwn ourselves worthy to be native born Americana. (Loud cheer* ) 1 am not here to ahuie any man; far from it. I do not u*k any man where he it from, or who hei*. (Crie* of''no, no *) I am ready to say to any man, come from where he may, "come to our country, enjoy our Ireedom, our luatitulioui and our liberty," but I beg to tell them, also, that American citizen* arc capable of governing themselves. (Cheer*.) We know how to protect our institution*. I tell you >e hardy sons of Columbiu that ye are quite willing that whoever will*, may embark and pay hi* passage to our countrj , but we also proclaim that no man shall run up the Irish over the American ilag. 1 have otten heard it remarked, forsooth, that a man should not be made pay taxes without a voice in the legislature. There are many hard things and disagreeable that must bu borne best,Ins ilili ?n.l I proved it. I once atopped at a hoarding house,and thought it quite too bad that, being compelled to pay lor it, 1 had not the regulating of what waa for dinner. (Loud laugh ter and cheer* ) We tell the foreigners that they are welcome to a residence, but they muat suffer us to go to market; let tliem pay their board and take what is uro vided. (Cheers) Vvo demand the privilege of ruling our own institutions ourselves. ToU begin to feel the importance of this. But a few days ago, my little girl said to nte after coming from school, "11 the bible is God's hook, why are they going to take it away from the children in school?" 1 tell you, fellow-citizens, it shall never bo taken away !? (Cheers.) I tell you, who come here to-day, that you will have that book in our schools?our institutions? in everyplace from the senate house to thn cottage. That was the hook in the dark hours of the revolution?(applause!?that was the hook that Ucorge Waahingiou took in his hand whan he wished success to the cause ot civil and religious liberty?(loud applause)?and success was sure lbelieve that it is not u sectarian book, and I wish not to live till the day when it shall he excluded from our citizens.? (Cheers.) We do not want to look lightly at this matter. We are here to reason on it?to talk over it Tho other evening, going up Third Avenue, I heard men talking very loud, andnverhoard a voice saying, in a strong Irish accent, "No man should forget ;his native country." I say so, too?1 honor the man who uttered that sentiment. Stand to the country that gave you birth! For myself, I never will forget that 1 am American?I will nefer deny lam a Yankee wherevor I go. Some of you, no doubt, will recollect seeing a play that was got up in the time of the war, by British military officers, as a burlesque on the American torces and their discipline. On a certain occasion of its being acted in Kngland, an occurrence took place, as follows : In the play the British othcers are represented in force, and there is brought before him a prisoner, who is asked, "What are joiif" "A cobbler," he replies. Another is brought in, and he says he is a tailor. Many a>-e the jests cracked at the expense of the American soldiers and their answers, when all at once the voice of a sailor, from tho gallery, turns the tables by saying? "(ireat Britain thraslied by cobblers and tailors, by " (tireat laughter and enthusiastic applause) I glory in him who is in his heart an American citizen ! We say to all the world,come among us it you will, but let us ran ourselves; let us manage the household. (Applause.) I am glad to see this meeting; its result will he that all parties will be swallowed up in it, and that J. Harper will lie elected as Mayor for our great eity by 31,000 votes In the mean time, 1 will tell you a little story aliout the pups. (Great laughter.) A man in Front strict had tho other day born liy his hitch three little puppies, one ol which he called " Whig," the other " Democrat," and the other, " Native American." A neighbor of his coming in, fancied one of them, and asked Tor it. "O no." said the owner, "thatfis Whig, you cannot have that 'ere pup." ' Oh, just the thing I like," says the other. "Oh, well," says the owner, "he's too young; he was only horn yesterday, but come in a day er two, and you'll get him." Back becomes in nbout three weeks with a basket, for the pup, and says, " Now let me have that 'ere little fellow with the black spot near his eye." "Oh no, you cannot have him." "Why that's Whig, ain't it/" " No," says the other, " that's Native American." " Why," suiil the visitor. " when I was here before, you called him Whig." " All true, my friend," says the other, " but he had'nt got his eyes opened then; now he has, and he is not Whig, he is Native American." (lloars of laughter) Now, gen. tlemen, we are getting our eyes open, and 1 think we will all he Native Americans. (Terriflo. cheering ) Be so, fellow citizens; join us, ana we will without fail, reform every ofHce in our city, from the common street sweeper to that of Mayor. (I.oud cheering, and three cheers more.) Loud shouts being now raised for " Samons"?" Samoa*" Mr. SaMMc.tis accordingly stepped forward and said? Fellow-citizens, I now respond to your call, on thisoccasionwhich is no common onu.Bothwhig and democrat have endeavored, have vainly attempted to crush the Native American party, but it is now Ireyond their grasp. But a very few months have elapsed since it was designated hut a ricketty bantling ; now you behold it crushing both parties on theone side and the other. But a lew months ago, and what then took place? The Secretary of St. Patrick's Cathedral had the hardihood to aay, that we, harbor iasfSi-r"tViaWii^OUJ'1 JUet as thay should he. As long as they could they were as mischievous as they could he, and thought they could turn the Bible out of the schools. 1 believe you will not submit any longer. The time has come when they discover that Americans, knowing their rights will maintain them. (Cheers.) What did I see a few night* ago t I went to see the great meeting at the National Hall, and what do you think we heard there ? We were there told that whilst we, the Native American party .professed to go for reform, it was a hollow promise?that while we offered to save in reforms at least half n million of dollars, they could save a million by their plans. Who believes that I No body of any sense. We charge them with being enemies to all reform, and the friends of abuse And what do I see at Tammany Hall 7 1 see your Mayor, a lawyer of some distinction, cnnfrtsing judgment on all our charges. We have chnrged the Common Council ol this oity with studying their own benefit instead of that of the public lor years, and they confess it. We have now n petition in this city coming from them praying the Legislature to reform our city charter. They are too late in the day. They tell you thev want tojtBkcthe power out ol the hands of the Common Council which they have abused ; but honor to the people, their doom is sealed Instead of changing the power they say the Common Council has abused?they pray the Legislature to tike it away. Just see the unblushing impudence?the base system of fraud and deception that the political partivs practice on the eve of the election ana immediately after it.? They will commit all sorts ot plunder and make you pay for its perpetration. My friends, what I tell you, you all Know to have Item the. history ol the movements lor the last few week* of both parties ; I isk you as intelligent and thinking men, whether you believe that either the whig* or democrats, even if honest in jhelr professions, could bring about reform 7 They dare not. They dart: not do it Why 7 Because ||m presidential election comes next fall, and which ever of tnnm gets the city, they are bound to plunder in order to carry on their projects for the Presidency ? (cheers.) They ask for the small sum of $l,tKk),0<J0 to carry on the expenses of the city government?one-eleventh as much as the whole general expenses ol the National Government of the United Htate*, exclusive of >700,fMKl to pay the interest on our Croton debt And what have they given you for that $1,900,000 7 Streets so filthy that the Irish themselves might plant their potatoes in the middle of them ?(Hoars of laughter) And if you go to their police department, you will find that the rogues who have plundered the most money, escape the most readily, always supposing, however, that they have paid a large per centage to the oflicers?(Cheers and laughter.) This same Common Council having been all winter in session, at the last hour take up a bill, which the very member who presents it, admits is not the best possible,and why 7 In order that their friends in the legislature may give them the power to elect lor the next four years the very persons who have so longlabused the privilegesfconferred fupon them. My Irieuds, you cannot be deceived. These reformers now think to humbug, to deceive, to delude von, but when they do that they know full well that on the !>th of April the power to do so any longer will depart from them.? Their net* prove more conclusively than all the *|>eechev that could be made, that thev know that if justice is done them,yon will execute, on the Oth of April, thst judgment which a righteous people sooner or later pronounces on faithless and wicked servants? (cheers ) There is no need of long speeches. The time hns come for action, and in that action 1 only regret that there are American citizens in the whig and democratic ranks who have so far forgotten that which they owe to their countiy, as to permit themselves to be made the tools of their own committee* and run against their country. IT it were possible for either of the candidates of the whig and democrn tic party to bo elerted, that election would seal the suecaasful candidate's fate in future. IIo never could afterwards get the vote of an American Republican citi/.enof New \ ork?(cheers ) Hut they cannot?they dare not go into the contest to defeat ns.

Let us go for reform and nothing but reform, and defence of the constitution against foreign influences (Cheers.) Not one of the presses in the city oppose us now, but one ; we have spiked every gun but tne Pie hrian ? (groans and hisses)?and that is hardly worth the trouble of attacking. (Cheers ) I don't believe that even Horace Oreeley dare come up to thn scrntch again (Laughter) lie has healed the Irish tail so long that hi dare not any longer ; It has been silenced, and we'll si lonce Horace on the 9th of April. (Cheers ) J. W. Oat'is was loudly called for and said ? Borne sny this meeting is a humbug It is not very likely that this intelligent audience would come out on such a day ai this, in such weather, for the sake of promoting a hum bug.

Mr. Snariii Bii hi-ic addlcssed the meeting, and took a long view of the principles of (he democratic party, con traiustinguished from those of the wings. In the course of liia remarks, lie made u furious onslaught on the nt v. or" Native American" party, and introduced several or their placards, which were highly inflammatory. One or the placards was headed "I'edigiee of Popery, or the fie mulogy of Anti-Christ,"and contained most infamous allusions to the I utholic religion uud attacks upon the I'oj? and Popery. The reading excited considi table indigr.ation. A letter Irom Michael Iloffmori was read, apologising for his inability to he present.

In complying with the request cl the public, nnrl gas consumers of this city, which appeared m your very highly esteemed paper, the " New York Herald,''of the 2lith instant, e,"tied "A Citizen," the insertion of these few particulates in connection with those already published on ttif u'l ? Wl" greatly oblige the subscriber. Mb. Citizen?In compliance with your ij'iuest, contained in this paper ol 26th inst., for your's b/"' the public's informal inn, I will state some more of the purticulur advantages which a portable oil gns company would have over those of the New York and Manhattan Companies of this city. First, an act ol incorporation is all that is necessary to foini a company, and to carry it into operation; and, as no favors ure required of the corporation of this city, they cannot have any control over the company in any way; and, as street mains ure not used for the conveyance of gas, all such expense in avoided the average cost of which is near flf-KXX) per mile ; and as a contract with the ^Common Councils of ibis city is not necessury, consequently a portable oil jiw company cannot be compelled to lay street mains, or to light Hny public lamps, ut a sacrifice, tor their accommodation, hn is the case with llie other gas companies. The New York Company t?rc bound bv their contract t<> lay street mains, anil light public lamps in all and every street in the citv ComS.ivV,' ',ma L i. . t... 11 the same cost and chaige as the common oil lumps now in use. The Manhattan Company receive fifteen dollars for each lamp, and lighting the same I lrnn< I Irmwl In Sivlli street See document id the ICotomon Council, No. 48, March 16,1885 A nd, us a portable oil pas e-t,tIili-liui<-nt is to much mote compact than those of rosin or coal, less than one. half the pre mites occupied by such establishments will be ample lor portable pits. And also the gas metre ; this very offensive machine is not used, thetefore the rent of it is saved to the consumer, and also the unpleasantness of tlmt mode of collection avoided. Kvery jierson can know to a fraction the cost of his lichts before he hepins, or daily, or weekly, il he pleases; and not one halt the expense for fixtures required for lighting as with other gas, consequently the rent or cost is reduced in proportion. The vessel containing the gas ran lie fitted to any ol the gas fixtures now in use, or curt be taken to any part of a house or building without difficulty; no charge whatever being made to the consumer for the use of such vessel or gas holder. And as there can he no restrietions whatever, all parts of the city will he eligible to light with portable gas, as well as Harlem, the cities of Hrooklyn and Jersey, or any other city or place; manufactory, or private house, that is easy of access by steamboat or railroad, in any part of the Union; and can he conveyed with as much i ate and salety as any package of merchandise whatever; and the Ftenrnhout, railcnr, or coach, can ar the same time he also lighted. And considering the advantage of being aide to light every part of this city as above stated, a very grent interest would be paid on the capital expended, fur beyond ifnit of the other companies, the Manhattan in particular.
