The candidates pruented for the various offices under our City Government, hive, in point of ability, moral character, private worth and unflinching Democracy, never been excelled. They are above the envenomed shafts of our opponents. They are proof against misrepresentation and falsehood They are well known to the voters for whose suffrages * they have been nominated by the Democracy of our city Our candidate for Mayor is respected by the intelligent and honest of all parties. His unswerving integrity, joined with his political principles, his private character and correct habits of life, euiiutntly lit him for the office of chiel magistrate ol our giuat city. If elected, the duties of his office would be discharged with the strictest fidelity to the interest of our city, a rigid and frugal regard to the expenditures, lie is an uncompromising advocate ol those political doctrines which are opposed to the aggressions of the party of privileges. He is deeply devoted to the cause of equal rights and privileges, end opposed to all unjust and unequal legislation, whether City, State, or National. In short, he is a Democrat in feeling and in practice. Such a man is Jonathan 1. Coddington. Let the people then rally to his support. Let the Democrats unite heartily aud energetically to swell hia majority. Lat them rush to the polls like men resolved to achieve a noble triumph In electing such a man to the first office in our city, the peopla do honor to themselves, and at the same time promote their beat interets. What Democrat, worthy of the uaine, will fail to esteem it a privilege to deposite his ballot on Tuesday next, and to exert his influence in favor of so incorruptible, so capable, and in every respect so worthy a man as Jonathan I. Coddington 1 Without intending te speak disparagingly of the many worthy men who have filled the office of chiel magistrate of our city we unhesitatingly say, that for persevering industry, great business habits aud high moral character, Mr. Coddington, would, if elected, stand unsurpassed In all stations, political or otherwise, that Mr. Coddington has filled, distinguished ability. strict integrity, and gentlemanly deportment towards all those having business to transact with him, were qualifications universally accorded to him. But with all these weighty reasons in favor of his election, it cannot be denied that ouroppornn's are actively engaged, though not open lv and honestly at poli'ical opponents should be, to deieat his election They, the whig*, are ready to vote the Native American ticket, i' such a course will, in their opinion, defeer th? democratic party?ready to drop their own candidate at any time in order to acnuire the ascendancy in our citv a ivemnent. and prevent the reform in our city charter, no urgeu I, demanded by the democracy. ? To maintain our po?iti"ti, to give our beet support <o the principles and measures of our party, to inspirit our friend* in other places, and dishearten our enemies evei j where, we must act with zeal and energy in theeomin. contests. We must avoid all dissension* and jealousies, and strive by all honorable means to secure a most deruteu and emphatic democratic triumph in this city, br the election of our ticket in a majority of the war.'s. ami em Mayor, bet our friends exert themselves to the n'mosi to bring out our whole strength, and secure e triumph worthy of this democratic city, and the democratic camWe say again, are you prepared for the struggle I tier every thing been done to ensure our success? if not. Imm this day forward let the busy note of preparation let commenced, and not silenced until a democratic victory u Sroclaimed. It is due to the character of our city, and the omocracy of our people, that we should pruclai n in " thunder toned" sounds from the ballot box on Tuesday next, that we are still true to our principles, and that no acts of the enemy can shake our laith in the democratic creed, and that we will keep the democratic bali in motion, and give it such an impetus that no efforts of our opponents will be able to arrest its progress. We must show our whole strength at this time, and the work for November will be more than half performed. As the New Hampshire hoys said, " We must tree the coon now, and our boys will pop him olf at leisure." [From the Tribune.] [The Whig Organ ] O' a Citv?The Charter Election?The " Native" pARTr.?We prefer to do one thing at a time, so far as practicable ; and, feeling a deep interest in the Connecticut contest, have not yet paid much atteution to our approaching Charter Election. But now that the Connecticut battle is over and the smoke clearing away, we ahull turn our attention homeward, and we intend to take hold in earnest. If there lie any " Natives" or Locos who have imagined that we are only in fun in our opposition to their respective parties, we think they will soon perceive they have been mistaken. We shall net war on their candidates personally. We detest scandal an* the base means to which Loco-Kocoisru has resorted in Connecticut, with such signal ill success. .Mr. Coddington and Mr. Harper are each respectable men and good citizens; the latter we may perhaps without presumption claim as a personal friend ; the former we know and esteem. Sfe neither of them, nor to their several party's ward tictasrf, do we make any personal objection, it is to the principles on which they are respectively supported, the objects which will be special iy promote.! Dy tne triumpn 01 citner, mat we enienun and Khali urge -strenuous objections. Apart from these, either would make a very good Mayor, though we thiuk hardly so good ai, certainly not betterthan, Morria Franklin, whose experence in City Affair* is greater than that ol either of hit competitor*. But to their *everal principle* we do cherlth the moit insuperable objection*. Xhoie of Mr. Coddington we are daily giving reasons for opposing; the " Native" tenets we speak of lea* frequently, since they do not come so naturally and frequently in review in connexion with the events of the day. Yet in our mind locofocoism is not more hostile to progress and the liberal ideas which become our age?not more calculated to foment and loster hatred, collisions and heart-burnings among our people?not more promotive of social discord and disorder in the country, than uativism. In fact, our elemental objection to the Jacobinism ol the day, that it aims to correct abuses by destruction, and not by creative, conservative reform?that it vents its fury indiscriminately on things good and evil, riming to bury them in a Common ruin?that it teuds to weaken, not to increase, h irroouy, generous confidence and mutual trust among men?applies with equal fore* to nativism. It is a narrow, proscriptive, intolerant spirit which cannot in the nature of things survive the temporary excitement in which it took rise. Does any reader demur to this? If so we ask him not to take our word for the principles of Nativism, but to resa the following official letter of intruiry addressed lo tne candidates lor its nomin?tions, setting forth the fact that their names have been presented for consideration os candidates, ami proceeding to yoke and wring them by exacting affirmative answers to the following questions : " 1st. Will you accept a nomination, upon condition that, if elected, you will, iu your official capacity, advocate and adhere scrupulously to the principles of the American Hepnblican Party f "41. That the individuals ysu appoint to ofBce shall be American Citizens, bom within the jurisdiction of the United States, and be firm believers in the principle* ol that party?honest, capable, deserving, and of good repute and selected, as near as may be, from those who have been heretofore members or the Whig or Democratic Parties. " 3d. Will you endeavor to bring about a re-organization of our City Police, and a reduction of our City Expenses? " 4th. Will you, if nominated, declare yourself the candidate of the American Republican Party only?" It is not deemed sufficient that the candidates should "adhere scrapulouslyto the principles''ofthe patty? they must also pledge themselves to appoint to sllice none but natives of the United States and "firm believers in the principles of the party"?the latter condition, we apprehend, if "scrupulously" adhered to, would prove fatal to tbs aspirations of most of the members oi the party, and render its field of selection for officers very limited. 1 hen all the offices are to be divided equa.D Uumi the > k? in Ik. .',lk.i,..k Ik. ... . \V IllgH mm usjww nuu JWIII in >wi ?j , ..n.ww^u v?. taction be three time* more numerous and include mti three times more capable than the other, ii il.nn- are h?i a dozen places to fill, and twenty candidates to ftU than the appointing power must net consul r which six ? them ure most upright and honorable, but which throe ? each faction will tiast answer; and if them bo hut thiea f one sort (which, however, is net very llhvlj to Lapps i with the present'Native'party) those thrro will hate t> he appointed, though unfit, while a dozen N Iter men an competitors for the plares !

But we have not patience t < dw all imig er on these exhibitions of the aordiaalms and r>.tr re* bigotry of this new party. Its incessant and sav.ige a tacks on the religious fftith of a numerous and social. Christian Church cannot pass unnoticed or uurebuked. Other Churches may say, "It is only the Catholics are abused?what is that to us r'?but we nnsw er, It is tU Catholic* to-day, hut it may lie the Treahyf riina, ci Kpiacopaliana, or Unitarians to morrow. Tbt priocipli at the bottom of this movement once establish*..! at. J i i mischiefs will overflow in all direction*. Thej wlio burn Convents will burn Churches if tolerated, an l care priciaus little of what order. Kvery man who has a Fnitb, very one who lovna Freedom, should sternly resist and rebuke this fall spirit. As to our naturalization laws, we know that reform la needed, hut it is needed to vindicate, not to subvert them. They ought to b? thoroughly revised forthwith, and such safeguards added as would render operative and unescapabla their own derd-ietter provisions that the applicant for citizenship shall grove a good moral character?a previ Otis oeciarauon 01 iniennoni, and a nve years nnnroaen residence in the United States. Were these conditions strictly enforced, the evils now so justly complained of would vanish. \Vithout such enforcement, it matters little whether the required term of residence be one year or twenty-one. Then the charge now made for naturalizing should he abolished altogether, or reduced to half a dollar, and the applicant sworn that he did not come forward at any man's solicitation, and that he allowed no man to pay for ilia naturalization, directly or indirectly. Such changes as this we will support most cheerfully. But to declare incapable of holding office those who are legal citizens of this country, because thev were born in another, a the grossest absurdity and proscription. It is pentetuating rsste?It is surrendering the polls to a class ol citizens, y?t telling them that they shall eserclse the power ol bestowing office entirely for the benefit of others, never l?r themselves In merey to them, for the safety of the country, we insist that either citizenship be denied altogether or its natural privileges he suffered still to accompany it. The course proposed by the ' Native' party is like arming and drilling slaves to warlike exercises, embodying them for effective combat, and yet attempting to ? E NE N retain them in slavery. Menmay be Just or unjust, but this is absurd?insane We appreciate and respect the motives of that large number, of wrbigs especially, who say, "We vote the na tiro ticket this year, in order to secure City Itelorm . But how secure it! Will promises doit? Will even good intentions on the part of those who attempt the ar duous task of governing this great city? And is nobody lor reform but the "native" party? If you can act efficient ly for reform with them, why not through vour own party? How do you calculate that a reform is to be effected? Could tt not as well and as surely be by such as David B. Ogden, and Hiram Ketchum, and Daniel Lord, and Murray Hoffman, as by the Bammonses, Job llaskells and Joel Kellys, of nativism? 1 hat was a pungent question of another time, but not Inapplicable to this?"What must tie the religion where a monkey is the god!" Look at the array of namos which ftgureprominently in the proceedings ot this "American"party, inquire into the capacity and history of those who bear those names, and judge whether they are the men to correct the complicated and, una, pruuiauic auuinwi vui w?ij ^vtciiiiucui. aic iuoik not many patriot* among thorn on whom the chance ot pocketing a few thouiand* by winking at an existing abuse would be at least as effective as or. the average of whig* or iocofocos I Think of this. As to City Reform, we say now, as we hove repeatedly said before, that the whig* have at all times been ready to banish national politics from our charter elections, and unite cordially with opponents on a broad platform of single eyed devotion to city interests. They are ready to do so now, as they have all aloug been. But if party considerations are to predominate, why should they not adhere to their own party I To merge their organization in nativism is to grasp at a transient, local advantage at the cost oi serious prejudice to the whig cause permanently and throughout the Union. Thousands of adopted citizens are now silently saying,"The principles of the whigs are sound?their measures are the best calculated to promote the prosperity of the country?but if they vote to proscribe us, we mutt oppose them." Shall we inflict on ourselves this lasting injury ? Whigs! Friends of Clay! Stand to your colors! meeting ot tilt Sew York Mechanics?Prison Labor?The Legislature?The HeraldThanks of the Meelianlesof New York. A meeting of the mechanics ot New York was held last ovenirg at Montgomery Ilall, to hear the report of the Committee who had been appointed to proceed to Albany, with a petition on the subject of the gross injury done to the mechanics of this citv. bv the emiilovmeiit ot convicts in the State Piison on mechanical labor. Mr. Patrick Maffit wai nominated Chairman. Messrs. William You*a and James Ckeats, were nominated Vice Presidents. Hcnar Larkir, Secretary. Mr. B.ildwi*, one of the Committee read the following Report: ? I liu committee appointed to proceed to Albany with he mechanics' memorial to the Suaute, containing about uve ilui'i-aiul signatures for the passage of the Bill pending hi ihe senate, to employ the convicts in the Iron mines in tnc northern partol this State, respectfully report .? That in accordance with their instructions they proi t.e led to Albany on the following day, and immediately ..allien arrival there, presented the same to one of our veuaiois fram this district, the Hon. Isaac L. Varian, vincii was received by that gentleman with the assurince'hat he would present it in due format the earliest ajU'ortunlty. 1 he committee regret to say that the nature of their engagements were such as to prevent their devoting as much time in visiting Senators and members of the Legislature os the importance of the subject demanded ; hut they saw as many as they were able to, in the short time which they were obliged to allot to themselves for this purpose, and endeavored to impress upon them the interest which is felt on this subject in the city ol New York. But Mr. Chairman, the interest manifested would be teutold what it now is, were it not that many mechanics have become discouraged and despair o( obtaining equal justice at the hands ot our Legislators ; yet, Mr. Chairman, we ought not to despair. If the mechanics are but true to themselves and to the righteous cause in which they are engaged, they must eventually triumph. We should have great faith in our republican Institutions, and rely upon this truth, that where an honest and an intelligent voice comes up from the people, it must and will be obeyed by their representives, who should never forget that they are the servants and not the masters of the people. In conclusion, the committee would state that they believe the prospect of success better than it ever has been, and that the people at large throughout the State have bocome satisfied, that great and wiuifust injustice has been done to the inecha mesas a body, by throwing the wholo burden of sustaining our pritou system upon them, and that it la high time mill llliiiujuiuic iviiv icmuvcu. i itai 111c uium juauViutihle und economical mode in which it aan he done, In by employing them a* the Bill before the Senate provides, In the manuiacture of the finer qualities of Iron, and such other article* as are imported from foreign countries, and do not come in competition with the labor and skill of our citizens. All of which is respectfully submitted. Subscribed, E. U. BALDWIN, WM. GREENE, J Committee. , New York, April 4th, 1844. The reading elicited marked applause. Resolved, That the committee are entitled to our thanks for generously attending to our interests at Albany. Resolved, That we return our thsmks to the members, of both parties, in the House of Assembly for deciding in favor of the New 1'rison Bill; and we ask the Senate with confidence to regard the severe and trying discussion the hill there underwent, with more favor than the opinions and advice of those interested in the prisons at Auburn and Sing Sing. Resolved, That the mechanics of this State must regard with respect and gratitude those Senator* who shall consistently with their views of justice to the State, give their votes in favor of the New Trison Bill now belora them. Resolved, That with the full confidence of having jus tice done to us by the 8enate, we now authorize our chairman to select a committee, whose duty it shall be immediately upon learning the passage of the hill, to give notice to our fellow mechanics by the firing of guns in the Paik, and in the evening to have our head quarters, Montgomery Hall, brilliantly illuminated. Resolved, That these proceedings be published, under the direction of the officers of the meeting. The meeting was briefly addressed by Mr. Tccn, who read a very long letter, which he had received on the subject of the meeting. The letter stated " That the bill meets with desperate opposition from the members representing districts near the prisons; also from the officers of the prisons; also from the contractors, who move incog among the Senators, but have considerable influence?then the majority of the Senators have no feeling in common with the mechanics. "But the contractors dare not commit their objections to paper, but come here in person and each one tells his own lies in his own way, with variations according to listners. We follow and correct them as well uwc can. There is one of them however,who will lie faster than ten men can correct him. Mr. Baldwin offered some remarks condemnatory of the employment of convict laborers in opposition to themer.hunic* Ol the city. The Chairman offered a resolution of cordial thanks to the proprietor <>f the "New York Hkrald, James (ioahex Br.xNi.TT, Ktq., for the deep interest he had fhken in the cause of the Mechanics of the city of New York, and he therefore felt particular pride nnd gratification in offering a resolution of acknowledgment and thanks tn Mr. Bennett for the kindness he had at all times extended to the Mechanics of this city in not alone sending a reporter to their meeting, but in his fearless and generous advocacy of the rights of the Mechanic in the columns of his truly independent journal. Mr. Baldwin fully concurred in the views and opinions of the last speaker, as regarded the fhratd; he thought, however, their were bound to include the ether papers which had advocated their cause.

Mr. Baidwin offered a resolution ofthanki to the Ih raid toil the papeis of the city that had aided them in working out their cause.

The birthday of Kourier, on the 7th ol April, butaa it tails thia year upon the Sabbath, it will be celebrated ou the 8th. At 10 o'clock, the hour fixed for the opening of the Convention, Home forty person* had collected ; and a little ailer, one lady and a child entered the room and re mained lor about half an hour, when ahe withdrew. At 11 o'clock, Mr. Macdanikll moved Mr. Godwin to the Chair, lor the pbrpoae of organizing the meeting. The Chaihman said, I presume the.first business we are to attend to, belore we go any farther, is to get a list of the name* of those gentlemen who are assembled as Delegates. This Convention has called together the Kriend* ot Association ; and it is in that light we have oome together ; any gentleman, therefore, who is here a* a delegate, will please to step forward and present his name to the Clerk. The names of the Delegate* present were hero handed into the Secretary, and the following were appointed a committee to nominate the olliccr* who were to preside at the Convention :? O. M. Watson, Watertown, New York, John Allen, Maine, Solyman Drown, New York, Charles A. Dana, Brooktarms, A. Brisbane, New York. The committee retired, upon which the Secretary read communications from "Friends" in various parts of the A letter dated Canton, Ohio, March 39, 1844, signed E. P. Grant, in which the writer alter expressing his deep regret at hix inability to be present at the Convention, states, "1 am still as my leisure permits, prosecuting the study of Fourier's works, and in proportion to my progress does my admiration of his profound and penetrating genius increase. Almost dally am 1 struck with uew aipuzemeut at the sublime harmonies of nature's laws, as revealed by his searching analysis, and whut is more important, perhaps, the works of God, which once presented to my anud an inextricable chaos, scarcely recoucilmblc, with benevolence, assume, under his exjiositions, a benignant and inviting aspect worthy of an infinite and benincent Creator. And although he and his doctrines may now be neglected, perverted or reviled by a world, whose corruptions he was the first satisfactorily to explain and systematise, yet the day is jpsrdify coming when Justice will bedoneto|both?when movement* will rite from ten thousand hills, surmounted by bin statue in colossal proportions, gazing upon a happy people, whose God will be truly the Cord; because they will live in spontaneous obedience to his eternal laws." A letter signed "Cyrus Butler," dated Birmingham, Eiie Canal, Onio, was also read, taking a long view sfthe policy and principles ot the new doctrine of Socialism. Also, from N. G. North, dated Kaymond, Mississippi, ir which the writer speaks warmly of the Fourier doctrines and lauds his own knowledge of the principles of Association. Also, a long address from the "Western Fourier Association of Cincinnati," Ohio, setting forth the views of its members, and laudatory of the general objects of the meeting. It states :? ' Although we feel ourselves but as little childrenmere infants, in the great science of Universal Unity and Social Older, yet we have an unshaken confidence that it has for its base the eternal rock of Truth, and as we should be ever "ready to give a reason for the Truth that Is in us," we hold that the science of Assooiate Industry teaches us to establish jast relations between I.alior, Talent and Wealth." Another communication from the Chicago Fourier Society, embracing similar views, and a letter dated Water bury, March 31st, IBM, signed "Andrew Anderson," in which the writer lays down a comprehensive plan for the foundation of an effective and extensively organized Association through the States. A letter from a "friend" in Alabama, signed "John White," requesting to put down liis name as a subscriber at $100 per year. 7 he Chaikma* laid it would be well during the abience of the nominating committee, that tome of the delegate! ipiusuut should address the meeting on the state and prospects of the various Associations from which they Lad come ; as he was desirous, and no doubt the convention were desirous to get as much statistical information as hey possibly could on tho subject upon which thejr had assembled. Here there were calls from various parts of the room for Mr. List. Mr. CHRisTomaa List, of Massachusetts, here came forward, and said he would be very happy to avail him self of the opportunity thus offered to address his brothers and associates, and say something in favor ol the state and history of association in Massachusetts; but he did not think the present the fitting time, as ths meeting appeared so thinly attended. He would remark to those who were in the room, that he hoped to see the convention more crowded during the remaining days they were to assemble; and particularly as regarded the presence of tho ladies. He supposed, that as regarded the ladies, none of them were expected to lie present at the convention, tor lie had been tola since he came to New York, that the lai<lies would not be present. Now, he hoped that this would not be the case: he hoped that all would bring their mothers, sisters, daughters, and children, to witness the great work of moral regeneration; he hoped they would all flock forwent in such numbers as to fill the hall to its the ladies along to morrow in such numbers, as that the friends of association would see they had the ladies with them. He had been at meetings of various kinds on the subject of association; and it was generally admitted that such meetings were the most interesting. There was nothing on earth or in heaveu that c?uld not be introduced at meetings on association, but as long as their meeting consisted exclusively oi men, there was no hope of their being able to make headway. Woman was the peculiar benefactor of the human family-her influence inthees* ercise of the social duties?her peculiar province in cultivating the social qualities at home rendered her an object of deep consideration in advancing the interests of Association?he, therefore, hoped she would be present at their Convention Man felt deeply the pressure that came upon him in a thousand shapes, from thu Arab system in which he lived abroad in the world ; he had a thousand things to call his attention ; but woman was the chief saviour of the universe?it was woman that had the |iower, the influence which, if exercised over man, could produce powerlul results, lie found it, however, in one thousand cases out of ten, that woman always was the first to oppose the movement?the first to object to the incorporation of their husband with their Association I llow was this I Because women always had their attention less directed to these matters than men, because woman was klways kept penned up at home ; because when they dme to their meetings they were always frowned upon.? [1'his was the case, and hence the backward state of Asso ciation. He would ask then, why should they not come 7 lie would therefore repeat the call he had made at starting out?let the man here present bring their mothers, Wives and sisters, and daughters to their Hall, ao that the meeting may be aa interesting and a* full m possible.

Whrbius we believe, first?That the all-flood, allWiie, all-Mighty Being has designed a state ot Paarac t Ounce tor Human Socletie*, where every individual man, family, community, shall be a member of a larger Man, I I ?aa* IRK 1 )RNING, APRIL 5, 1844. which is the Nation, and all Nations members together of the Uuivernal Man which ? the Human Rare?and where

Mankind Mm n-o.xi with Ihrmielm (hail co-work to fill the Karth with goodness, wisdom, beauty j and by Righteousness thoroughly in harmony with the Divine Will, from a principle of Love, by exact science of justice, ap plied to the minutest detail of Industry and Art, become m?u >1?mull min ami ivtirut t. An<l whereas we tM-heve, secondly?That the History of all Savage, Patriarchal, liaibarous ami Civilized Societies ha* taught the wickedness ami woe of selfish disunions; that the promises ot prophets, the visions of jioets, the ho]>cs ol philanthropists, the plans of statesmen, the ettorts ol the people ol all ages ami lauds have announceil ami prepared for this era of Univrksai. Unity, ami that, in the Divine Love manifested in the <>os|h1 ami lite of Jcatn Christ, Providence introduced the Kingdom of Heaven upon Earth. And whereas we believe, thirdly?That the Nations of Christendom?hound in one tireat fraternity of kindred Worship, Laws, and Customs ?concentrating the highest I'iety, Learning, and Art ot the past and present times, tilled with an ever-growing spirit ol Humanity ami Liberty?impelled by iutense scientific and industiial energy?and circling the Karth with their colonies ami commerce?are called to be the instruments ol ttod in diffusing the reign of Love ami Truth and Joy ; and that the United States of America have peculiar opportunities,and, therefore, responsibilities, through their political and social experience ol Union and their free institutions, to aid in this sublime work of uniting all men in One brotherhood of the Children of Ood. I And whereas, wg believe fourthly, That (hi* Ministry [ of Christian Nations is shamefully corrupted and weakened by the Inhumanities which the Nations tolerate within themselves and piactice towards each other, such as?War and Force?81avery|and Serldotn ? Fraud and Collision, between all clusses oi l'roditcers, Distributors ami Consumers?Pauperism with its attendant miseries and vices contrasted with excessive Wealth unjustly shared and (injuriously accumulated?Oppressive Toil inadequately remunerated by mean wages contrasted with luxurious and wasteful Indolence?Oeneral Ignorance, partial culture, want of high Kednement?Contagious Diseases, bred and diffused by crime, and depressing modes ot life?insuflicieut and dispro|>ortioned production?and finally and chiefly, Religion withdrawn from the duties of daily all'airs, VVorblliness engrossing time, talent and feeling, Universal Duplicityand wunt of Confidence in Ood and Man,preferring expediency to right, and policy to iutegrity in individuals and Nations ; and that these Wrongs and Out ages cannot and will not cease until the vai iuus communities which compose these Nations practise the justice which Love commands to every one of their membersMan, Woman and Child ; therefore, Resolved, That we feel it to he our great privilege to live in an ago which Providence now summons to establish relations of thorough mutual kindness between man and man within each community, between its families within each nation, and between its eominunities among the various nations which lire members oi the Human Kaoe , and that we desire to exnress due irrntitude hv devoted service in this sublime cause of Religion, llumuuity anil Universal Good. Resolved, That the Justice which Love commonly commands, includes -1st. A reverent reception Bnd welcome ol every child huru by the Providence of Uod from the Human Race. dd. The highest culture of its physical, intellectual, and moral powers, under healthy, wise and holy influences. 3d. Free opportunity and encourage meat of every man, woman, and child, to exercise their peculiar powers, for their own improvement, the welfare of their biethien, and the glory ol God. 4th. The fullest and exactest possible recompense for all modes and degrees of usefulness. Mh. A social position in accordance with character, intelligence and energy, ttth Access to all social, literary, artistic uud religious privileges, and enjoyments of the community of which they are members. 7th Assured snp|>ort in infirmity, and means and aid to reform in wrong doing, fth. Liberty in con science, speech, and action, to obey the will of God, limited only by the sympathy. Mr. Chsxxixo, here rose, and said it would be observed that it was the desire ot the Convention to place the great cause lor which .they had met, on the highest basisThey had felt unanimously that this Convention was an Kra in thia country. This wus really and truly a religious meeting, and no higher ground could lie taken than this to advance the cause of religion, of humanity, of universal unity. lie di I not know with what feelings they had come to the meeting, but lor himself he hod cotne there, with deeper emotion than he had ever come to any '.meeting in hi) lile time. The present occasion called for wisdom and steadiness of principle, which should lift them into true communion with God. They should commence, then, their proceedings, and conduct them in this spirit; and he believed that the present movement was made in accordance with the command id Uod?it was not got up on the ground of the personal taint of ambition, but to give up every thing they hail to the sovereign will of the ruler of all. It was for that purpose they had offered the resolutions just presented, for the adoption of this Meeting. Ha felt he was striking a chord that went to the hearts of all, in saying tiiat the present was a religious movement, lie would ask them, why had all their movent* utu Uitbwrlu failuj I Tint WHS no mystury to thom, us the present Convention, gave cause for expressing their profound gratitudo to the Great Benefactor of this universe j (or they were standing to-day in this froe land, and enjoying the blessings of the God ol peace?assembled to pledge themselves to the great cause upon which they had met. This was the Unit time in the history ol their race, that the menol a whole uation bad been summoned together to pledge themselves in the cause of human amelioration ; but the cause of the human race and of man, required that something should be done for tliia objectsomething to alleviate the rising evils that prevail abroad in the world. Why, he would ask, had so many failed in the work oi regeneration ! because they were in dread to trust their GoiL Why, he would again ask, had so many hitherto failed I heeauso they were airaid to trust their race There was one rock still, that stood lor the regeneration of mankind?one refugeforthe sinner in the world abroad ?it was based upon the principle of universal unity? it iMtiind trie-ether nil: and he c.laoied it to his heart.? lie gave himself wholly to this causa, for it wai the cause of God?of religion and of roan?and every man in that Convention was bound to express hit opinions upon it.? Bydoing this,and coming forward in the true spirit,and tin would go barren for the future?and it was in the caute ol Jesus Christ they had assembled and met together. The members of their body, putting nway nil wordly considerations, met?and all hope of that earthly happines which man was seeking alter in this life, gave themselves up purely, entirely and perfectly j they gave themselves up in the true spirit ol the Church of Christ, desiring to re urn " love for love"?for Christ planted his Church in the Kingdom of God, and Christ introduced that Kingdomof Heaven upon this earth. It was us his disciples, and within this boundary of Love, that they came to that meeting, invoking the blessing ol Divine I'rovidence for the future upon the Friends, who had assembled, anil Imploring Ins divine blessings upon the work they had met to accomplish. With such objects, feelings, and disposition, he ii-lt they could not open the business of the Convention more auspiciously than by ottering up their humble aspirations lor the divine assistance, lie gave hut a partial view of the infinity of this work of I'rovidcncu, who had extended to them the privilege of opening it for the henetit and salvation of man. Mr. Rirau hereupon moved the adoption of the preamble and resolutions. Mr. Macpaxiij. seconded the motion. The Ciiaikmax remarked that be supposed that the motion was in order. .Mr. * mxisixo was in nopcs mat me matter would bit It-It open, so that their friends in general, who li nl assembled,might,in the. fulness ol their hearts,have an opportunity to express themselves fullr on the subject upon which they hail been providentially called together. Mr. List would move the adoption of the preamble first Mr. Ioiix Ai i.of Maine, thought it would he right fir them to think well first upon what they were doing.? 'l'hey had not ceme there to adopt resolutions, but they had come there for thought and for prayer. They had rome there to have a free interchange of thought, and they should learn the whole they had met for by the interchange of thought and the consideration of the evils of the world. The Association had guaranteed the freedom of discussion, and the Convention was not prepared for special action on the maiterinvolved in the resolutions for any siiecific time. They wanted to talk and bring out anddevelopc the views of Friends of Association. Mr. List was of opinion that they hail all hut one object In view, and he sincerely hoped that every thought frit by every one present would he freely given lor the benefit ol the Convention and the community that they would take up one point and another until they took tip every thing. Witrtout discussion they eould not give a series of resolutions that wonld embrace the whole subject of Asso t on, and he hoped they would do It both harmoniously and cordially, so ns to give them all U)? benefit of their united opinien.

Ha took out hi* snufFnox took three(pinche? of anuff aneerad twice,lookel at Horace (Jn-eley once -at the Chairman three times, and withdrew. HERA Mr. Maooarikl said?With regard to tho resolution that was ottered by Mr. Charming, there it no great difference between the two. As to nuking any changes in the resolutions which have been read, we cun easily lay them before a committee to mako what alterations in the language and phraseology which may be desirable. 1 feel desirous that the preamble should fir adopted now, for it nan ucen prepared u* a prvpei ?|oiu. i no nor aunrn i much importance to what may he thought by our enemies about ux. I do] not attach much value Tor the objection o! 1 the world, but I wiih those resolutions to go lonh to ahow what are our views on the important subject of association. For my part, I will hold myself responsible to any man or sot of men to prove that tnia association is but carrying out the great principles ol Christianity. 1 will prove thut there is not a doctrine orpiiuciple enforced by Christ, lint we can reconcile with the principles of Charles Fourier, 1 am glad, therefore, that you are disposed to muke this a religious movement. Fourier himself announced his doctrine as a science. He did so because, acquainted with all the sciences, and alter a miuutu and latmrious examination of his system in this light, he conclusively thought that it was fully consisteut with the physical sciences, and this he tested by experiment, and verillrd by the most accurnte of all the sciences?that of mathematics. He invited men to look at Foniierbm, not as a scheme or a plan, but as a system of fundamental truth, and as much a science us astronomy, preconceived by the divine mind. But while Fourier puts his system forth on this ground, as a science, he asserts also that it is a religious system. True that lie has been accused ol infidelity: but notwithstanding this lie was a Christian, arid one ol the greatest and purest of modern times. lie loved his Uodand his fellow man; and he was willing to labor day and night to luing men totlod, to put the woild in possession ol the greatest amount of happiness, to promote the unity between man and man, and to show that true ruli- J gion was not inconsistent with the i njoymt iii 01 mi we good things of this earth. Ilia disciples think thut ho has demonstrated those principles, and they are determined to hold to them. It is then quite natural lor Us to place this movement on religious grounds. I rejoice it litis thus been brought before you in the preamble, and I hope, therefore, that you will adopt that preamble without delay. (Applause) Mr. Warp?1 beg leave to observe, Mr. President, that as a deputy from tlie Socialist Society, at the corner of Jroadway, I am anxious to uddiess a lew wonts to this convention. Mr. I'uissisii rote and observed that this was a meeting of the friends of association on the principles of Charles Fourier, and that it was important to keen this in view ? He wanted, therefore, to ki.ow it Mr.Ward np|x arud in the canacity of a friend to that system. Mr. Ward?I understood tfiat there was to he o perfect freedom of discussion at this convention, and under this impression I have risen. I am not ignorant of the system ol Kourier. I have examined his system, and was sent twelve years ago to London to meet the French deputation from that liody. Does, then, thegentleman put the question to me with a view to preclude from the right of rxpression all but those who are friends to C. Fourier I Mr. Chassiso-I will answer that question, I hope, clearly to the gentlemun. This is, as I said before, a meeting ol all those who are friends to the system of? has. Fourier?of all those who, after examination, are satisfied in their minds ol the propriety ot Fourier association. It is a specific meeting tor a definite purpose, and I will simply say to our fi lend, Mr. Ward, that lie is not, in any capacity hut as a friend to our association, entitled to speak. Mr. Ward?If, then, none hut the friends of association arc entitled to speak, permit me to ask how can that he recommended with freedom of speech, when that speaking is all on one side. I would like to know the geutlemun's explanation of this, that I may he able to ccmmunicute the substance to those who cent me here. Mr. f.'iiaxmmi? In answer to this, 1 think the best and shortest way will he to read the coll of this meeting, which Mr. Ward may not have heard. The riiAiK.MAis, having read the cull of the meeting, Mr. Chanrixo proceeded?After that 1 think there cun be no misunderstanding as to the character ol this meeting. It is a convention of those Delegates who are satisfied to curry forwards the cause of association ; it is not a meeting for controversy?It is for practical purposes, and those who do not agree in the objects, cannot be^admitted to occupy our time. Out allow me to say, thut if any gentleman hastany remarks to make to this meeting, it will he conceded to him to s|>eak?not as a right, hut because we are not averse to light, come from where it may ?and that oes. tstilllntf /> *11 nil tins ullhis>/*t thflt fail lift Kfitll Mr. Brow* ? It would lie well to inquire of Ward, tho delegate from the Socialist Society, if hia friends are anxious to obtain information on the subject of Fourier Association ; or if they ate engaged in getting up a Society in favor of our principles. I think, sir, an answer to this will settle the question. Mr. Wssii made a few remarks which were indistinct; lie observed :?We do not believu in the infallibility of Charles Fourier; nevertheless, we ure engaged in the same objects?to relieve mankind from the present state of society, which corrupts and degrades all. Notwithstanding some remaiks ol the gentleman, taking lor granted the infn'labiiity of a man, and mnrked by some asperity tothtn-e wko do not, we wish that a good feeling should exist between us, and I am sent here as a prate offering. To be sure our priuciples ale different from I yotfra. Yon preserve private property?we do not?we I make property of all kiuda contribute to the happiness of man without distinction. I think now I have answered the gentleman. We have an estate in Pennsylvania and we send teen to it agreeable to our system. Mr. Macd*i<(ii:l?The gentleman says there is a small difference between our system and his, and that he has read the works of Charles Fourier. Now if he has, I really do not see how ho can thus express himself. If, as he ssys, they are engaged In the amelioration of the human race, in the name of God let him continue to do so We do not fight against any man or set of men, And if the Socialists am engaged for the same cause as us, no controversy is demanded. But 1 think, by his own confession, he could not he a delegate of this Association. We have met for business and not for discussion ; our object Is not controversy?although at u proper time or occasion, we may perhaps do so ; and not now when we are met for a specific object?and that is to spread the doctrines of Charlca Fourier. We have no objection however to meet any man at proper time and place, and discuis with him our principlea and those he may advance. This is not now the (juration, and I do not know how any man can prrseiu nimaru 'inner any inner inipruiiuuu Mr. List mini it wan a delicate matter to exclude anv one fr..m the Convention who claim a right to be heard, ami it in n matter which might create some dissatisfaction on the part ofthose who sent |hun, a dissatisfaction which, upon reflection, if it were canned, wo must ourselves admit, wan norne renson for. But to proceed more immediately to our nnbject. The examination of the subject ol association to a certain, hut not to itn fullest extent It it the belief of nn, nn it friends, that the faculties of man, without exception, should, to a curtain extent, be gratified, hut an the moral and intellectual are the superior, they nhould have the control. We believe that property in wanteil us a means to carry out our nynti m?to supply the wr.ntn of human liody and soul. The present system of property does nupply those wants, and we propone to make a change in the present system ofproporty to the required extent, just an we would snuflMhe want of a church, or gardens, or (landscapes, or f^Hfings, or anything else which can gratify the soul, vtfri are como to discuss the truth of this. We are satisfied ol its justice and we will g.i on; and as our object is the good of our rare, my one who will suggest whatever may enable us to do this, in welcome to do it. (Applause ) There had lieen some discussion in Boston, with a man whose viewn of property were essentially different from oiiis. Mr. CfUMxiso rose to observe that the meeting in Boston was open to all, hut thut this won not of the same kind, and gentlemen would do well to make that distinction. Mr., continued ?lie) hoped that if any gentleman differed them, that it would he only retuiding their proceedings to proceed in controversy, anil tlmt no gen tlenian would forget that their object was specific, 011 the present occasion ; hut that at another time they would he ready to discuss the truth of their principles. Mr. Ward again rose nnd was proceeding to reply to what he thought was a challenge irnm.Mr. Maco*fu?.l to discussion, when Mr. Mai mnri. said?I gave you no such challenge Mr. Urishaisk then arose.?There if a great difference to he druwn between our movement and that ol the social Ists,which had it* origin in Kngland. We go on religious principles, and recognize tin- mcml riglit of individual property. Hut wo do not wiili to take up our time heie in tlio dismission of private property the formation cf man's character?hi* {accountability, or the existence of ultod, Jtofcc., lor we well know that to enter on these topiri, the convention might continue lor centurion without end, i and therefore it la prrfcrtlyuselet* to enter on thla matter I therefore move that Mr, Ward.lonr Socialist Iriend, lie heard, and let the subject be end*), and then proceed with our business. We have nothing further of n rontrovei sial nature to auy, and I hope that tne friends ol the convention will agree with me in thinking that a discussion would not advance any side. Mr. (inrn rv addressed themeeling, lie snldthat It e ns well to giva the proceedings, as had born done, a religious aspect, although there were difficulties attending ti|ion so doing, It would he liard tri satisfy the world, lithe stiliject of religion was alluded to prominenlly, it was certain Ihey would get credit I or a new religious movement , and if they avoided the subject, they woald be accused of irreligion , ami, according to the peculiarity of men's minds, would they lie tdamed or not foi net attaching themselves to some particular sect, and whatever they said they were sure of tioing misconceived hy the world, and men would be guided by the views of the destroyer of the great Ale*, an Irian library, who said, "If It contained not anything twyond Mahometanisin, it was useless j iT it did, It wns worthy of destruction.'' They should take the highest stand?it was not only consistent, but necesaarv to do so If men were talked to who did not understand them, it would lie found that the utmost they looked to wns the building of a court house, a prison, or charitable Institution; and sofarithey would, no doubt, in many rases, join us so (hr as charity was concerned, or the giving of alma. Thry would readily admit the im|>erleolion 01 me preaent ayatem in thia reapect ; hut even ou this ground there would be objection*. They <litl well, therefore, to take the highest ground. They believed themselves sinner* like other men: biit|they hud a conviction that chriatianity, if carried out?if the form that it contained were developed ? would lead to a different atate of the world from any before aeen They did not attach any weight to any particular ayatem of organization, but that the religion of Christ inculcate* a very different ayatem titan that naw preralllng, and that *a? only to he secured bv the system of Charles Fourier and the great principlea of association which he unfolded. They were to carry into effect tho?e principle*, or ran* a i-eifect structure on the principle* l?,,l down. If then, the meeting were aot willing to adopt tin-< resolution*, it would be well to goon, Turing the, afternoon, in th< ir discussion; nod be hoped that to-morrow would rsrrv on the huaitieta of the Convention; an.I,*a it wa* I o'clock, he would move f.?r their adjournment. Mr. Jn? ru oh?erved that he ha<l a few remark* to mnko,which wen- lie tli<itight, worthy of some considerstion lie ?aid the course which they seemed to lay down i . m t -r .w*. | T Tli -M-^d J 7 , W*?

The I'Hunji.vr then aaid that the question wan the preamble to the ii-sulutiona, which weie put and adopted, when the un-Hing adjourned till 3 o'clock. At three o'clock the < ouvtuuon assembled to pioctid w ith the discussion ol the resolutions. On the question ben g put, .Mr. Meaner arose and proposed that they should not proceed w ith the discussion ot the resolutions. lie ohjeCted to the meaning that seemed to lie attached in the tir?t resolution to tie woid "Providence," ' the iniiul an i wiliol Clod," tec., he. lie should not he willing, it hi were one ot their body,to proceed until he knew what was meant.

Mr. Ciunnisii suiil, thut as ho had piopoted the ici-olutiou, he lelt bound to address himsell to what hud lain u Irom his Iriend w ho had just spoken. lie could not enlei into a controversy with turn, because he believed liiui 10 lie in seaich ot tiuth. The resolution w as lull ol meaning?M redundant tliat it was not easy to express all that it implied, lie then gave his opinions on the views con nee ted with religion connected tvnli the resolution. He believed in Providence. He was conscious ol his |ou-.t<sion el power to lay down tliu laws ol his liio, luoiai, physicnl, and intellectual although he could not unmake the phy siiilogicul laws of Ills nature. As ho did not make his injiid or ulleclious, lie must look beyond the world lor a lirst cause. Secondly, when he looked into his mind mid heart, and louiid ult his thoughts tending to something greater than itselt, the cause mugl be perlect, sovereign in itself, altogether good- it w us the Almighty Cod. Lvery thing whicli surrounded him in the in una! w orld had an influence upon him. Although ignorant of the mode ol the action, unquestionably Providence admits evil in many respects, but allwuiked lor good; and summoned u? to stand in a ielation to bini consistent with our happiuesr. II tanulitsaiitl communities uiidnatinus joined to tecmc I. nelits.why should not their association principles be good. They were bouudto iorvvoid this woik it ituy valued their privileges?that ol being bum in Ibis uge, wbicli Inviue Providence had chosen us one of a migluy leloi n ation, and h'uurierism Association was the means, lbhoped Mr. Murray would not understand him as giving any indication ol a wish lor controversy , by turning upon flint explanation. Mr. Mi hhsy again rose and called the attention of the Convention to out- point thut had escaped him helore. Ho could not comprehend, with the last gentleman, the propriety of talkiug about a great, a good, perfect, and A1inigliiy being, permitting evil. .Nor could lie coincide w uli those who looked upon the Universal Creation us made solely jior this only motive?the glory ol that being, its C i tutor. Mr. Ai.lkx concurred in the revolution. He took a veiy compiehensive view ot the past religious history ol the world?the ditl'eient conflicting system* and teneta?the prevalence of error underdillerent toims and their giuduai explosion, ami the |)re|iarution ol the World lor Kourierism.

They were told a great deal uhoiit Christianity, and of its influence on the world ; that it hail ameliorated the conditio}! ol w oman und elevated her station in society. Hediflered from this completely. What was the state ol woman ut the first day ! Why , more than any other portion of ereation. The Convention should consider what they w ere about, arid step dow n from Jacob's ladder,utid use, instead of cabalistic words, language easy to ho understood- The gentleman talks about our "being the ollspring of the divine spuit." What do we know about spirit, and this language is beyond rnuii's comprehension. The operation ol the present social system ended to malice, halted and uuchantablenesa ; and chiisliuiiity sets mail against man, household against household, and were not the truths that Jisus t hint taught. Mr. Warner, at great hngtli, defended socialist views?said that Kouriertsin was inadequate to regeuer. ate the world, and thut they should not pledge themselves to the resolutions. Mr CusNNinu again enforced upon the Convention the necessity of keeping to their busiaess and avoiding discussion. lie drilled that they were there to hold themselves responsible to Socialists tor their views; hut ho would say to them, ' as lur as you are concerned, like brave and hardy men, do the woik } oo think is right." The I'as.sioi.nt said that he would, to the fullest extent, wish that every man should exptess his opinion lully, I reel y and candidly at that Convention, and would nut restrict at all the right of free opinion. His friend Warner hail, indeed, disclaimed all right to sptuk; hut lor a person holding such a view, it was rrmarkahle to w hat an extent he iiad availed himself of their ladvlct nee The resolution was then put and adopted. Mr. Channinu again made a long speech in support ot the resolution, and in defence of hornier asroeiution. He dwelt on the deep and aggravated evils of society? the evil* flow ing from accumulation of wealth?the pauperism of the master?flie deficiency of education the ialsity of the principles which foinn d the basis of criminal jurisprudence?the rights ol msn to he sup|>orted in wsnt, sickness, or decrepitude, hy the(government. '1 he w hole system was wrong, and never could he righted hut by the influence of that systam w hich they were there to advocate and propugate. Mr. Ki'nni.cs lollowid. in n sprrrh of some length, prvtty much to the same. Ifect. Then: was nothing as it -hould be. In hit opinion, " whiter vr was, was wrong,^ and It specially devolved on them to reform the whole world. Alter one or two other speechesMr D*kji rose and said He felt keenly cn the prurient occasion. His bosom swelled w ith indignation to behold this gieat city the scene of every misery and vice which cursed the world. In one street you sec wealth and pompous e(|Uipages;in the other, prostitution, rags and misery.
