Days, like men have different and sometimes curious grades ot great nees Some Hre great in and ol themselves instance the 21st of June, the longest in the Gre goiisn calendar ! Some are (treat trom the asso ciations connected with their return, and some, most unexpectedly, have greatness thrust upou them, as it were, without a why or a wherefore. "Sic volo, tic jubeo," is proclaimed, and nothing further remains to be said. Of this last species whs Wednesday of this week. It was the 4th ot December, a day unremembered either in the common or ecclesiastical calendar, yet it was a great day nevertheless. The sun arose as usual though no one saw his beautiful countenance, for he hnd veiled it in murky clouds, from which dis tilled rain and hail, most dangerous to the undtr itandingt of terraqueous mortals. And yet it was a great day, and so proclaimed the loud mouthed cannon from the Capitohne Hill. In sober words and to drop our tropeian Pega*us, we mean, that on that day at the City Hall in the city of Aluany, assembled a Convention ot the " Liberty party men in pursuance to the following eloquent call ?

E. W. GOODWIN, T. TOWNS" ND, G. U BARKER. E. P. FREEMAN, J. C. JACKSON, T. A GLADDING, Ex Com E N. Y. A S. Society. William Jackson, Eeq., of Massachusetts, was appointed President. The names of the other offi cer! we did not learn. After the usual routine of preliminary business, a resolution was introduced and discussed, declaim* the propriety of holding a National Abolition Convention tn Washington City. Some doubted the expediency or the satety of such a proceeding. " We'll be mobbed," said one. " So much the better," replied another. If they put ua in prison it will J*?'2llour ptt"ep' w" the argument of a third. ?? We'll apply for a pub lie room, and it will be refused, and that will give us a lift," was the argumentum ad domwn ol a fourth. And to went the battle, but no definite re suit was reached^ and the resolution was hungup for further consideration. In the afternoon, we had the good fortune to be one of the delighted listeners to tha proceedings and debates of this Lycurgean ajsemolwe. Gerrit Smith offered five spicy resolutions, which will be noticed presently. They were laid on the table for the time being, to enable Mr. Jackson to read a very long letter trom Alvan Stewart, Esq , who being absent in the flesh, was present by epistle. The reading of this letter caused considerable sen sation and a good modicum of applause. It was written in the peculiarly pithy, nervous, and at times, witty style of Mr. Stewart. We were par ticularly struck with two or three passages. Mr S. spoke of James K. Polk as being the " personi fication of slaveholding bigotry;"and recommended to every abolitionist on no account to suffer ihe aforesaid " personification" to be introduced to him but to regard such introduction as contamina tion'itself! Again Mr. S. condemned the course pursued by certain abolition candidates, of Jiving their opinions on the subject of a Bmkf Tariii, Dis tribution, Internal Improvements, &c , particularly in written communications, to go before the public. He recommended hereafter entire silence on all these subjects, and to stick like wax to the One Idea." There was a paragraph iquinting most aw fully towards the acceptance of a locofoco nomi nation by James (t Birney. Nominations, either by whigs or locolocos, must not hereafter be ac cepted on any condition by a "liberty party" man. This he considered as an established law of the '"a?the conclusion of the reading, some debate ensued touching the good health of Mr. Stewart and the propriety of entering his letter upon the minutes. At leiigth Rev. Joshua Leavitt proposed that the letter should be considered in the light o? a speech in person, and on his motion it was laid on the table. Aftf r the singing of a song by Mr Clark, who, by the by, is a capital singer, the reso Unions of Gerrit Smith were called up. They are in substance as follows 1. That whether it is the whig or any other pro-slavery party that has been defeated by the " Liberty party" votes, we abolitionists rejoice therfHt, and w? daelare it to be our present, as it was our original, owl Aell be our unceasing purpose to deleat every pro-sla?eiy party in lh$ S*rnat the alleged slanders of the embodiment of the whig party, Henry Clay, shall not close our eyes to the atrocious lies and forgeries by which it was attempted to blacken the character of James G. Birney, and crush our intant^cause^ 0f democracy by the bastard and pro silvery democratic party, is one ef the most lying and impudent pretensions that could possibly be put forth, and should excite the contempt of all candid and upright **4? That while the Liberty party welcomes to Its folds oeople of all climes, all religions, all colors, and all na tions, it can have no fellowship with the bigotry and in tolerance of the Native American party. 6 That while Terrey, kc. lie. (naming some half Joxen individuals) are imprisoned lot no other crime than aid ing the oppressed to obtsin their freedom, this country cannot, except for the purpose of establishing Its utter hypocrisy, claim to be either a republican or a christian C#8omTono asked what the first resolution meant. Mr. SMiTirreplied that it meant to declare that if It was true that abolitionists hnd been the cause of the defeat of the whigs, they were right glad of it. And if they could have defeated the democratic party, their Joy would have known no bounds We declare our hostility to all pro-slavery patrons, and as long as a pro-slnvery psrty exists in the land, whether it be ecclesiastical or politi cal, our work Is notarcompllsbad. .... Mr. Allkk, of Oneida county, said he was ustonlsh-id at io nnny naw fashioned things as were being developed every (lay. It was but a day or two since, that he heard a man describing some fowls as a new fashioned duck, which had lately been got up Now this morning he went orer to the cnpitol, and there were assembled a set of men to make a President. Belore they could do that, they had to get a clergyman to make a prayer. And while listening to that prayer, he could not help thinking ol the old maxim?'"God help the rich?the poor can beg. The whole kddress of the clergymen was in behalf t f the great and powerlul-those just ooming into office un.i those just going out! Mr. A. said the whigs were accus tomed to ergue that we must choose tha least of two evils. Well, the locofocos hsve chosen the meanest ot two evils James K. Polk in inteUect was a fourth rate man, and in his actions a brute He was living upon the unpaid labor ot his slaves, and kept a beast to flog the women'. Mr. A. said he used to be an abolition "but" and that was the meanest of all abolitionists. He had hf en trom his youth a rabid locofoeo, but could nt s and pitching Van Buren overboard, and nominating Polk. He was inclined then to be a whig, but finally went the whole figure tor the lib<rty party. Mr. PaircMssn, of Washington county was very lu minous upen tho slanders and lying el the Whfgs, which were truly awful. We felt very bad indeed but, sup posing that Mr. P. had not seen the Abolition psimrs, which teemed weekly with the meanest kind of lie "about Hunry Clay, we were very much amused at his philippic. But, while he was going It si strong on the art of lying snd slandering, wo really thonght he was too hard upon he Editor of the Boston Chronlclt, who sat at a table In front of him. Had we bet n entitled to a participation In the proceedings, we should certainly have called him to order for bring personal. He csncluded with that power ful an:l perfectly original argument, that the Whigs were to blame lor electing Polk, lor if they had ail voted for Birney, Polk would not have been elected ! The gen tleman forgot?but we have told the story of tha re fractory Jnror and his eleven obstinate associates once be fore. Verhum tap. Mr. Dbessik gave the resolution committe1 a drerslng for omitting the name of James D. Lane in the list of im pri oned patriots. Lane was In the Virginia Penitential y, convic'ed by live gentl. men justices of aiding a slave mother and child to escape from bondage, and he Is now serving out a twelve vears' sentence. He was a native ot Albany, but resldea in New York, where he had a fami ly. And yet his name had never bean mentioned >n any Abolition press, to this day. Why this omission ' Was it because he was a colored man 1 Hehoped ,no*'J? there c. r'ainly ?M something remarkable in the omu ilou. He moved to i?s.-?t the name of Mr. Lane. Mr. Smith assented, and itwai done accordingly .

And suppose we 'hould hear thtt th * revolution had been quiet, peaceful and blood 1m*j khould we not rejoice at it 1 And > et the membori ofthe Nativu American party could itl*? Mnrtrinu with them, that a man is not fit to be a repuo lican until he ha* lived a series of years with r^publ ciin* and learned of them. How then could iho'e who had lived all their days under despot*, be at onoe fitted to be republicans I If we adopt the doctrlne of the Native American party, we give up all hope that the nations of the world shall he turned into republicans MrS. contended, that it needed neither a probation of 21 or 6 vears, to learn to choose between good and bad men lor office. We blamed foreigners for voting for bad men, but Wbigs and Democrats set thera the example by voting for duellists and slaveholder*. He drew ?P'ci"r? ?l,^e candidates of tho two parties, and concluded hy saying, ti P/*ik and Clav Clav aud Polk, six to one and halt a do?i "the o"tyher,?ayndUin view of the awful fact that these two person?gei had been voted for in preference to JameiO. Eirney, "a man of tran*parent candor, he ex claimed with the air of a tragedian ?'Oh judgment! thou art lied to brutish beasts, And meu have lost their reason." Whigs and Democrats had passed by James O. Birney, and had done a " nasty and mean thing, by voting for women whippers aud baby stealers." To withhold from foreigaers tho right to vote, and yet expect them to be good citizens, wss as absurd as to keep a boy away from the water, and expect him to learn to swim. A government that protects the poor Is a Kood goveroment !--iia Ood-ffivon Rovernment, and oil others are 01 tne devil He did not object to the form of our government. No. the form was good enough, but the ^ and damnable. Government, he ccn.ended, bad no more ridht to fwrnish railroads tor people to travel on, than it hail to supply boots to travel in. And Government bad no more right to furnish school teachers, than it had to^sup olv doctors and lawyers. He knew ho was putting forth an unpopular sentiment, but what did he care for their popularity. He loathed the whole system of Oovcrnment meddling with the education or the people. One fruit ot this Iy item was the origin of this Native American partv. That grew out of an attempted exclusion of the Bible from tho Government schools The trouble was iu Go vernment'* meddling with the schools at all. Let the Protestants supply Aeir school, with tbn Protestant ver sion?the Catholics their schools with the catholic ver sion, and ilonf force the infidel, through paying b.ii tax towards the Government schools, to i upply any *er?>on of the Bible You can't farcc religion into the heart of ?,y man Mr. 8 said he hoped the Catholic,i would never vield any of the points they hod assumed. This was not a Protestant government, if by that phrase it was intonde.d toauert that Protestant* had any right to hvor more than Catholic*. Tlii* government wa* one in which all people of oil religions and of no religions, of ail sexea and and no sex, occupied the same platform, and wete entitled to eujoy from the government, equal rights and equal pro ^"otcts followed Mr. Smith in a long harangue, which wo listened to very patiently for about an hour, but were unable to find out its nub, and we accordingly U>Thu?ehave we gone through w i*h tho mighty develop ments of the 4th of December.

City Administration.?We observe that still another movement is about to be made towards reforming the city government. A subject which, it appears, does not, as it certainly should not, lose any ot its interest with the loss of its novelty; and however skeptical the experience of tha past may make us as to the f easibility ot the present project, wa are, as enemies to public inefficiency, dis honesty and corruption, glay to see any step taken iii the matter, and an agitation kept up which, it is at leant permitted to hope, will yet abolish the dia gricelul features in our city administration. The project alluded toabove.it appears, contem plates conforming the government it our city to t'lat ot the state, and proceeds from a certain sec tion of tho democracy of this city. It would seem that this party is not yet t-iujjhi by past experience, the fu)i!i:y of eecti< u&I movements, and that powerful, exieu'ive an J uaanlin >u? co operation is required to induce a revolution i-i putthu opinion, and bring about s*jy extensive change, no matter how much it may be wanted. This party held the reins of the city govtrismt nt a year ago. A reform in municipal affairs was then attempted by them; wi'li what succeps is wt II known, it is not lets generally admitted also, that the principal cause of their failure was party marnnuvritig and sectional differences?llu* scheming and te fish procedure of prominent actors, whose leading study was aelf agKrandistment; and how they, and not the city, would be benefitted by their projects. They tailed, as night reasonably be expected.to reform the city government, and what makes the disappointment of additional importance, ia ihe fact that it did not reform those meu of their partisanship, as may be seen by their present mode of operation in the work ot reform. list their failure had another effects it gave exis tence to (he " Natives," and helped to give them the city, " with all the spoils thereof," alsa. We say it helped to ?!o s<>; for it wou'd be a great oversight not to attribute to fair speeches and fine promises, and boasting, and bombast?commodi ties with which the newcandldateBiorpow?rwera from the very beginning abundantly supplied? un important agency in bringing about that event. What has ensued is by this lime but too familiar to a deceived and cajoled community. It is equally in possesion of the persecuted apple women and privileged rowdies; to the innocent victims of official insolence immured in the Tombs, and the guilty hordes who prowl at large, whose rascality is, perhaps, too congenial with the taste of our watchmen, which is of buch a retiring nature that they are always invisible when wanted. On review of all this, then, it may be fairly hoped that on future occasions, the public will show a jus'er appreciation of boasting, and rigmarole, and sectional selfish projects, than they have hitherto done. They have seen more than enough to con vince them that there is little use in wrangling about party schemcs, about the mode and manner ot ruling the citizens, so long as the character and moral worth of the candidates for oflice is made a subordinate consideration. People are teased and deceived by quackery. The direction given to the public mind ia false, by the everlasting cry out after measures and systems of reform. Instead of scrutinizing closely the motives and personal worth of those who aim at place und power, they give their suffrage?, because he who solicits thenyi is of a certain political school. Until this rotten system is exploded, there may be cs much talk, and debate and legislation concerning city reform, ns will give full employment to all the knowing in such matters, but their pursuit of it will be about as useless as that to discover the philosopher's stone. Spring is coming apace, and with it a new elec tion. Let the people be satisfied, that if they err they can retrieve their mistake; that when they are deceived and plundered, they can have an annual revenue. Let this be remembered by them?let them justly value and use their power, and next election day will see driven into ihat oblivion, from which they unluckily arose, as contemptible, faith less, and inefficient a faction, as ever abused con fidence and betrayed truat?and that clique is the present " native" incumbents of oflice. But to what set of aspirants to that honor be longs the claim to the succession, is a question at once interesting and difficult to determine. Yet, whilst we cannot exactly say just now who will be in power thia time next year, there is no difficulty in saying the " natives" will not. Much will de pend upon prudencc and caution, and it is very probable that the democrats, elated with recent trintnph, will be compelled to exhibit a sufficiency ci these ingredients in iheir conduct to secure a second victory. One other atpirnnt remains?the whigs?and we b-lievt tha<, if it b<* not their own fault, they can regnin their loat ascendancy in thia city. Although still reeliig under the effects of a recent defeat, a *? heavy blow and great discour agement," yet there is not in that occurrence any good grounds for despair. Let them but make a good use of their defeat, and they may, as it has happened before with skilful generals, turn it into a victory. Let them appeal to the people, not aa party men, but men of principle; let their profes aioas be lesa than their actiona; let them ceaee the puerile conteat with their opponents about party ab. stractiona; let them show a consistent, uniform and dignified reserve from petty squabbling, atrain? ing at gnata and awallowing camels?and they will give a good pledge that they are in earnest when they profeaa to be the friends of good government, retrenchment and reform. Takipg all thinga into consideration, we are dispoaed to believe that a revolution in the administration of this city ia be fore ua, and that, the race not being alwaya to the swift, the next municipal authorities will be select ed from amongat those who now seem the least likely to be chosen, provided they bear themselves discreetly in the interim. Annt.lli's Oriat Painting still continues to draw a great number of admirers to view it; which is not at all surprising, as it is one of the best pro ductions of the kind ever displayed in this city. Those who are desirous of seeing must go soon, as it is about to be removed u> some of the larger [ cities, for the purpose of exhibiting.

The actiug Directors, among whom several persons now most prominent in the new movement in the stock of that concern, pot forth in 1836 a report ot the affairs of the compa ny of the most exaggerated and delusive character independent qj the fallacious estimate of the value of the Canul, proved to be such by subsequent and bitter experience. This report asserted that for feited shares amounting at par to 81,132,000, and new shares allowed by supplement of tliut year amounting at p.ir to $600,000, had been disposed of at par and paid fur in specie or notes of other Banks payable in specie, amounting in all to 8L 734,000; that by virtue o'" their power to take mo neysiu trust,the Company had received $1,338,000 for the period of 10 year*; and that they Had then the means, and had made arrangements and in tended forthwitn to pay off the Holland Loan, amounting to about $800,000, all of which repre sentations were erroneous, a large proportion of the shares of stock having been paid for by 10 per cent in cash, and 90 per cent on stock notes on the pledge of the stock. These stock notes or most of them were renewed from time to time, until 1839, when by uu order of the Board of Directors (all present being directly interested,) the stock holdersowning this pledged stock were allowed to transient to the Company, and to have their notes cancelled ; they mostly being able at that time to have paid them up in lull, notwithstanding the ?lock had become of little or no value, the Com pany having become inextricably insolvent, no mo nCJf tlttV'tUK ever Hc?a Uy (Hm Company in trust?unless the proceeds ot the sterling bond*,not realized until after the date of the report, may have been so considered?and the Company not having at that time the means of liquidating the amount of the Holland Loan, which was lett un paid until the money was raised by a sale of the Canal, under a foreclosure of the mortgage, in Oc tober last.

Investigator. Columbus. [Cormpondrnce of the Herald. ] Columbus, (Ohio,) Dec. 8, 1844. Politics in Ohio?Meeting of the Legislature?Posi tion of Parties?Contemplated Movements of the IVhig Party ?Important Question us to who is Governor oj Ohio?United States Senator and Silver Pitcher*. Mr. Benmbtt? Day after to-morrow the Ohio Legislature meets, and the hotels of Columbus are already thronging with members, politicians, office-hunters, and the various characters that throiig around the State capitol on Euch occasions. In the countenances of the whig leaders may be seen the anguish and bitterness occasioned by the the defeatof Mr. Clay, and much doubt and anxiety as to the course to be pursued by their own party at the approaching session. The democrats oil the other hand, amid their delight at the result of the Presidential election,cannot conceal theii cliugm at the whig ascendancy in Ohio. From various causes, the position of parties in this State presents a curious nod important aspect. Upon the Governor's election it was nearly a drawn battle; and although the majority wan in created in favor of Mr. Clay, yet it fell so far short of the expectations of the wnig politicians, and was so clearly owing to peculiar and perhaps acci dental cuuscs, that it leaves the chances in a future contest very nearly balanced. For the success of the whigs, in the recent elec tion, two causes may be assigned:? Fir*>t: The Roorback forgery of Birocy's lettei to Garland. From the increased vote at the Pre sidential election, it is apparent that a large body ot voters, amounting to about ten thousand, took no part in the contest for Governor. A great pro portion of these were undoubtedly abol.tionisis, ot those who, feeling no strong attachment to eithei party, stood aside, to see which would prove the stronger party. The Garland letter was distributed in every portion of the State, and was not contra dieted until nfter the election. It operated with great force among the liberty men, and was either the inducement, or cxcuse, for immense number* to vote for Mr Clay. The currency question was the second, and per haps most important cause. It is well known, thai the democratic party have been much distracted upon- this question. O.-.e portion are hRrd money men, opposed to all banks. The others, in favoi of banks, are divided as to the system and restric tions: some being in favor of, and others opposed to individual responsibility and the right of repeal Two years ago, there was a fierce strife upon th? subject, and far more bitterness was manifested towards each other, bvthe pattizansof the differeni opinions, than towards even the whigs That bit ternesshasnot subsided. In the counties of Wayne and Stark, and in the north west Senatorial dis trict, it manifested itself by open war, and in thest stronghold* of the democratic party, gave three Senators and a Representative to the whigs. Te this question the whig ascendancy in the Legisla ture is admitted to be owing. With a majority then, in both branches, the question is asked on all sides, what will the Whigs do upon banking 1 No one knows. Foi there is a strong and decided difference ot opinion manifesting itself in that party, upon the same subject. There is not space now to explain th# views of the different sections, but I will give them to you shortly. Who will be the United States Senator ??Th? principal, perhaps, I may say the only names, are ttwing ana Corwin. Corwin is the favorite of the people?I mean the Whig people?and, if the ques [ tion were left to them he would be elected b) ! acclamation. fiwing is the choice of the Olo Hunker*. They are labouring hard to induce Cor I win to decline being a candidate. With that view 1 it is snid, that Kwing's friends got the Whig ladiet of Cincinnati to present him with a Silver Pitchei in reward of his " disinterested services." Fwing will probably sueceed in| getting Corwin to with draw, otherwise the latter will be the Senator, notwithstanding the Silver Pitcher ' Who is Governor until the Governor Elect is qualified. Upon the resignation of Mr. ShanNon last summer,Tiiomas W. Bartley,Speaker of the Senate, and a Democrat, whose father is now the Whig Governor Elect, became the Governor. Whei, the legislature meets, the Whigs will elnct another speaker, who it is said, will claim to exercise th? duties of the executive. But Ti.omaa W. Hartlet will hold on, until his father is qualified, and will retain the office by whatever force is necessary He is undoubtedly the Consti.utionsl Governor, and will not yield to the Algerines. So look out for another Algerine war; but should the Whigs undertake this game, they will find Ohio is not Rhode Island. Ohio being the principal State where the Whigt have now the ascendancy, and po?sesaii>g as ii does, many of the ablest politicians ol that party, warm, personal, and confidential friends of Mr Clay, the most important demonstrations as to tin future measures rnd policy of that party may her* be looked for.

A comprehensive plan of Police reform, adequate to the wants ot this great com munity, has been pointed out by us too frequently ; aware that the worthy incumbents in the Common Council require occunonally from us a small piece of advice. We would dgnin urge on the consider ation of the " Natives" in the Common Council the necessity ef introducing a Bill lor the establish ment of an effective police force; end such as would give some security to life and property in the lar?e thoroughfares, where the omnibuses still are a terror to our citizens?and in the lanes and purlieus of our city, where rowdies nightly riot in * their orgies. The bill we refer to sets out in the preamble the power vested in the city government topass laws for the suppression of vice and immoral ity. Article first removes all sunday officers, day police officers, officers to attend boats, keepers of public places, superintendent of junk shops, and superintendent of stages. The second section gives power to the Mayor to select two hundred, who, when nominated to the Common Council, and appointed by them, shall constitute the force. The Mayor to have power to nominate a super intendent of the force. Police stations to be fued in the following places: No. 1. Franklin Market, for the First Ward.

Section five provides that the Mayor shall desig nate nn officer to fill the place of superintendent, in the event of vucHocy. Section mx ?There shall be at each station, both day and night, a Captain or Assistant Captain. Section seven.?Hie superintendent must repair with his force to aid in nutting out hres.
