MEW YORK. HERALD. New York, Friday, January St 1MM. GO- For Southern mail, advertisements, Arc-, see fourth page. Tlie Anti-Rent Kxeltemeiit. At length the excitement, now ending in open insurrection, and which has existed lor many months past in the counties surrounding Albany, Troy and Hudson, has reached this city, and in a form which must call out an expremion of public opinion on the present crisis in the insurrectionary (iiatriots, and thus determine whether we are a government of laws, constitutionally enacted, and to be rigidly administered, or whether we are a government subject only to popular impulses of mobs and insurrectionary meetings of agilalMs, either here or elsewhere. During the*hut few days, it appears that some movements ot sympathy with those outrages in the infected counties, have been made in this city, and the result appears to be the call for a public meeting in favor of the insurrection, at Croton Hall, thi, evening, in the shape of the iollowing hand bill, which has been placarded in all the public places throughout the city and the suburbs. Here it is:? Anti-Rest Wit- Fellow-Citizens?'Troop* have gone irom this city, equipped with the instruments uf death, for the purpose of commencing a civil war-in thii State, to establish feudalism over treedom. We proteat against these proceedings, because 1- The immense tracts ot land claimed by Lord Van Rensselaer were given to him by persons (foreign kings ?ad queens) who did not own oue acre ot the same. S I'be wrong is inoreased by the insulting conditions upon which the " tenants" are permitted to occupy the land thus unjustly claimed by Van Rensselaer : in addi tion to the " rent," they are bound to do him " villian ser vice,' replenish hn larder with fat ducks, and pay him a tine every time they dispose of their property?even by bequest They are not permitted to touch a mine, or build any water machinery, and mast, at any time be de mands it, give up the whol'! (arm, or any part thereof, that "my lord" may erect Ais mills, and erect hit machi nery ! Fellow-citizens?Every man must see that such a sys tem is not only degrading to the men who are its victims, but an insult to the majesty ot the people In the degra dation o< even a lew citizens, every member oi the Re public is measurably disgraced. For these among other reasons, a publio meeting ot tho citizens of New York will be held a* Croton Hail, ooraer of the Bowery and Division street, Friday evening, Jan. 3, at half past 7 o'clock, for the purpose of taking into consideration the beat means of abolishing this remnant of Faedal barbarism. By order of a Committee of the New-work National Reform Association. THOMAS A. DEVYR, Chairman. There is no misunderstanding this bulletin. The person whe signs the notice of the committee has been for several years a resident of this city, and during the last four months he has published a jour nal called the "National Reformer," the columns of which have teemed weekly with articles in fa vor of the revolutionists on the Hudson, and call ing upon them, by all the principles of liberty and equality, to unite together and put down for ever what was called "feudalism," "tyranny," "lordly oppression." During the past summer the same person frequently visited in person the insurrection ary districts, giving in his paper full and graphic ac counts of the various meetings which he attended, and the progress of the ?free" principles which his paper advocated. We have still in our possession, w.? believe, a number of these papers, which con lained descriptions of his jiiurneyings around the insurrectionary districts. Again, the "National Reform Committee," of which this person is the organ, and of which one Mr. John Windt and various other individuals in this city are members, has been in existence for many months, and its declared purpose has been to organise a party, whose grand principle] of action was a division of the public lands amongst all those citizens of the republic who now possess no landed property. This division is to be effected without money and without price. Previous to the last election, this committee and their assistant agitators, had various meetings throughout the city? organized sub-committees in several wards, and actually nominated Congressional and State tickets, all their candidates being pledged to their peculiar doctrines. Ely Moore was one of those candidates, and Parke Godwin, one of the assistant editors of the " Evening Post," we believe, another. At all events the latter gentleman published something favorable to the views of this new agrarian party. We may also add that this party have another newspaper or gan entitled the " Working Man's Advocate," I which is edited by an Engliaman named Evans, j who was,we believe, indoctrinated with these agra rian principles in the English radical districts, and Mike Walsh. This paper is weekly filled with the most inflammatory appeals to the mob-spirit, and 1 breathes a tone of bold and utter defiance of the laws. Such are the movements which are now com ing rapidly to a crisis. A public meeting of the citizens of New York is called to-night at Croton Hall for the purpose of devising measures to pre vent the execution of the laws in this State. If the constituted authorities of New York are unable to carry the laws into execution, and these anti-rent i principles obtain the ascendancy, the next move- I ment will be to divide the public lands?to abolish all rents?destroy all leases and title-deeds?and to throw society back to its original elements? " Where wild in woods the noble savage ran." This then,is the singular crisis into which the cri minal apathy of both parties before the last elec tion, has precipitated the people of this city and of this State. It is now, indeed, time to act. And we look to the people of this city to take that course of action in relation to this deplorable agitation, which a full determination to uphold the constitu tion and the laws, will warrant at this critical mo ment in our internal difficulties. Moan Abolition Movements?While the patri ots of Quattlebum and Bluff-town, in South Caro lina, are threatening to diasolve the Union if the Tariff be not repealed and Texas annexed, we per ceive that the Abolitionists of Boston and that neighborhood, have commenced a movement for the peaceful dissolution of the Union, in the shape of a petition which they intended to present to Congress during the present session. It seems that a petition, calling for a National Convention to ex terpate Slavery, or dissolve the Union with the Southern Stales, has been circulated all over Mas sachusetts for some time past, and is new publish ed in the Boston Liberator, (Mr. Garrison's paper,) with a great deal of floariah, and no doubt will be ready for presentation to Congress in a week or two. Thus we go. While many of the States repudi ate their just debts?while an insurrection is going on in the centra* ^counties of the Slate of New York-while certaii portions of Maryland and Pennsylvania oppose payment of taxes?we see the extreme enthusiasts of the South and of the North prepanng gradually to declare for an utter ! dissolution of the Union, if their several schemes each of them antagonistic of the other, be not adopted by the rest of the country. Under such an accumulation of threatenmga and dangers to the stability of the Union, it may be asked is it not an alarming crisis 1 We say-no. The bulk of the nation are in favor of the Union, and the enthusiasts m any part of the country may pass as many resolutions as they please. Let them dis solve the Union if they can ! Latest veom the Insurrectionary Districts? Up to a late hour last evening, there was no fur ther information to proceedings in the various districts where the Ant,-rent movement was prevail,ng, beyond what we have g.ven in another part of our paper. Of course, rumor, with her thousand tongues, was not idle-but nothing of ihat sort was in such form as could be relied upon. New Statw Government?The Governor and Lieutenant Governor elect took the oath sf office in Albany on the 1st instant. They afterwards mietved the visits of their friends and the 'public. *** Legislature meet at the.cspital next Tuesday. Termination or tub Onderdonk Investigation ?Decision or tmi Houm or Bishops?The Bishop Found (iuiLTY.?Yesterday at 3 o'clock the laves tigation in relation to certain charges preferred against Biskop Onderdonk, terminated in the ren dition of the verdict of the Court. The Bishop was found guilty on all the specifications in the presentment, except one, on which the testimony was of such a character that it could not be enter tained. The vote was eltvtn for a finding of "guil ty," and tix of " not guilty "?a result very nearly that which we predicted a few days ago. The Court will meet again this day, for the purpose of pronouncing sentence, and then the Bishop will have the privilege of stating reasons in arrest ol judgment. It is desired by the Bishops who voted against him that Bishop Onderdonk would oiler his resignation. But this, it is well understood, he will net do. In the meantime, the friends of the Bishops are deliberating on their course. It is almost decided by. them to call a convention of the Diocese of New York, for the purpose of making a resolute and united movement in defence of the Bishop Indeed, we are pretty well assured that a solemn protest against the decision of the House of Bish ops will be made by this diocese, and that a formal and final separation will follow. Tn this protest and separation, other dioceses may be reasonably ex peeled to unite, and thus we have the prospect of a complete division of the Protestant Episcopal Church in this country. The truth is, Batters have been gradually approaching this point far some years paBt. The crisis,which was unavoidable, has been only precipitated by this accidental circum stance of Bishop Oaderdonk's trial and conviction As we have all along stated, this has been a critical and decisive struggle between the twogreat parlies into which this church has been divided,?a feud originating in a quarrel about the lunds of the Trinity Church corporation, inflamed and increased by the circumstance attendant on the Puseyite controversy, and now conducted to its final de nouement by the trial of Bishop Onderdopk, on charges stale, frivilous, and ridiculous. A great deal of excitement will be produced by the result of this trial. The public voice calls uni versally for a publication of the whole of the evi dence, the arguments, and the proceedings of the Court in this case. It ought not to be withheld. On the consequences likely to follow this affair, with respect to the iTnnity Church funds?the Episcopal Church?and the great cause of religion itself, we will hereafter have ample opportunity to speak, as subsequent events are developed. Meeting in Favok or Permanently Es tablishing the Italian Ofrra in New York. ?A highly respectable and well attended meeting of the friends of the Italian Opera was held yes terday evening at the New York Hotel, Broadway. This movement, which is likely to be well sus tained, originated with a few gentlemen, whose views will be best understood by a perusal of the following notice convening the meeting:? Nsw York, 80th December, 1844 Sir?The subset Ibers having ccrefulljr investigated the accounts of the Italian Opera Company during the sea son now drawing to a close, have oonvinced themselves of the aconraoy of the statements.already published,of the insufficiency of the patronage hitherto bestowed upon the enterprise, to afford those engaged in it adequate support, and they earnestly request your attendance at a meeting to be held at the New York Hotel, on Thursday, the iind of January, at 7 o'clock P. M., when an effort will be made by the lovers of music and patrons of the Opera to sustain the present company another season. After a Chairman and Secretary had been ap pointed, a lively conversation took place npon the position an d prospects of the Opera. A subscrip tion list was opened, and a liberal sum immediately subscribed towards a new season of twenty-four days, to commence about the first of next month. In addition to this, it was resolved to establish, for the support of the Italian Opera, a permanent fund, whose resources are to be applied only in case of future inadequacy in the receipts to sustain the company. We have the pleasure of stating that this fund was also subscribed to in a generous man ner at the meeting last night, and, from the inter est manifested, it is likely to be considerably aug mented through the efforts of those gentlemen to secure the patronage of their friends in addition to their own. A committee of five was appointed to carry out the views of the meeting, at which a creditable spirit, certainly, was manifested, and one which we trust will succeed in retaining in this city an efficient and well organized operatic corps?such as the present. Ole Bull's Farewell Concert?New Sacred Composition.?Ole Bull is preparing to give his farewell concert in this city. He is busily engaged on a new composition, embodying the sublime emo tions, excited by that great effort of the " sweet singer of Israel "?the 18ih Psalm?and which he intends performing at this last concert. This new composition will, we are inclined to think, exhibit his powers as a composer and musical poet, with greater effect than any previous effort. It is cer tainly a boldjand daring project to attempt, this mu sical embodiment of the sentiments of this inspir ed composition?one of the most beautiful and pa thetic to be found in the Old Testament. Let us just recite a few of the verses :? In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God : he hoard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him even into his ears. Then the earth shook and tremblad j the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. He bowed the heavens also, and came down : and daik neis was under his ieec. And he rode upon a cherub and did fly ; yea, he did fly upon the wings oi tho wind. He made darknesa his asc ot place ; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of tho skies. At the brightness that was before him, his thick clouds poised ) hail stones tod ooads of Are. Thou tho ehannels of wotera wore soon, and the foun dations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. He sent from shove, ho took me, he drew me out of many waters. Such is a specimen of this sublime and inspired poem?infinitely transcending in poetic fervour and lofty thought any thing to be found in Homer or Milton. The attempt to convey in muaical num bers the feelinga excited by it, is only paralleled by that of Handel, which resulted in those immortal compositions with which hianame is ever to be as sociated. We doubt not that Ole Bull will be equal ly and triumphantly sueeeaafnl, and will be greatly astonished, indeed, if this last effort of his genioua be not the most popular of all, and the most endur ing monument ot his exalted talent. Italian Music.?One of the most delightful books of music ever published in this country is Antognini's " Album," containing an admirable collection of the choicest gems from the Italian operas. The selection has been made with char acteristic taste, and the style ol the work is very elegant. It ia just the work that the Indies wanted ?n carefully compiled selection ot Italian rattaic? and ia already very popular in nil our fashionable drawing rooms. Thk Concert or the Orphean Familt.?These very interesting musicians, in conjunction with Mr Brown, will give a Concert thie evening at the Society Library Rooms, Broadway. The pieces they intend to perform are new and attractive.? Mr. Brewn will introduce on the occasion, some of his most resent compositions. The Battle or Buneer's Hill, Arc.?This ei hibition at the Coliseum, Broadway, has bee crowded during the holidays, strikingly evidencin how well it is appreciated by the public, which *cH merits for eEcellency, ftc. Mawacnusitts Leomlatur e.?This body met in Boston on the 1st instant. Levi Lincoln was elected President of the Senate, and Samuel H. Walley, Jr., Speaker of the House. Papers from Honduras.?We have the Belize (Honduras) Observer to the 7th ult. It contains no news. Maryland.?The Legislature met ou Tuesday. Williams, of Somerset, was chosen President ol the Sea?te, and ^Chapman Speaker of the House, New Year's Day in New York-?As fine a Jan uary day as ever shone from the heavens ushered in the advent ef 1&45. New Year's day is always a remarkable epoch for the lovers of fun and ex citement ; a striking one in a social point of view, as being the period when gentlemen, young and old, even including old bachelors, are free to visit young ladies, without liability to be suspected of a lurking regard for any object but conventional usage. It is also a peculiarly welcome day to news-men, cab-men, confectioners, wine-bibbers, and the friends of publicans, for on that day these latter functionaries are wont to keep open house? a custom whose popularity has nothing to fear from the hostility of any sect or party excepting the dis tinguished originators of the manufacture of Cold Water Punch in the Park Fountain. But the New Yeardoesnot begin with delight,nor shine aholiday for all classes. Disconsolate door-keepers are har rassed by the monotony of importunate knockers; theatrical managers lone all management of them selves in their anxiety for the fate of their " no velties cooks are oppressed, and butlers over powered ; Mayors become martyrs to the formali ties of levees; and horses are driven to show their faith in whipcord, by an increase in the rapid ity of their locomotion. AU these truths and many more were no doubt faithfully illustrated on last New Year's Day; yet, notwithstanding the beauty of the weather and the prosperity of the times, there was, in the forenoon, apparently less than the customary amount of bus tle and fun, and merriment and hilarity. There were abundance of visitors on the rounds certainly, and this constituted the principal feature of the day. From an early hour a continuous stream of pedestrians literally covered the Btreets, an effect pioduced most easily, as they had already been oovered with a stratum of mud and filth, and every species of nuisance, to a depth almost as great as the laziness and incompetency of those who are paid, and who pledged their promises, as lovers of reform, to sweep them. The incessant noise of knockers was heard on every hand; and frequent ly, as one passed along, they might overhear a re mark such as, " Do you recollect the number 1" " Oh, we'll fiad that out; the name's on ihe door;" plainly showing that previous familiarity was by no gleans considered an essential to confer " the right of visitnor was it destitute of interest in another point of view, as being the first general re cognition of " the| right of search, (for the resi dences! of friends,) upon record bylAinericans. In the west end carriages were rolling the rounds in large numbers, and now and again a showy livery reminded the spectator of more aristocratical countries, where the curious operation is performed of driving coaches through acts ot Parliament; where a footman's value is in proportion to the circumference of the calf of his leg, and where the maker oi the one and the master of the other is esteemed profound according to the profundity of | bis puree; and where the extent oi his knowledge is considered proportionate to that of his estates. One of the principal attractions of the day was Collector Van Ness's reception ot his friends at Tammany Hall. For sumptuous and elegant pre parations, the hospitable rites of this agreeable ob servance could |not possibly be surpassed. The Collector was waited upon by several thousands whose congratulations were tendered to him upon the confirmation of his appointment to the high of fice he holds, by the Senate, and his manner was most felicitous and pleasing to all who visited him. All who went were welcomed heartily, and all went away as heartily gratified. The Mayor, too, held a kind of levee, which was pretty numerously attended. If there was a more limited expenditure of wit and vfae at this than the Tammany Hail affair, the consumption of | "native" grapes and lemonade was immeasurably greater; we believe the last mentioned articledis appeared in enormous quantities. His Honor was particularly affable, and none who waited upon him returned without either a nod, a wink, or i | shake of the hand. In the afternoon, a set of choice spirits waited upon the Mayor at his resi* dence, and by way of compliment to him, kept|up a prolonged noise of bassoons, serpents, trombones J and banjos, which they called a serenade. A large detachment of newsboys were on the spot, and in terlarded; the musical performances with a few notes of exclamation, such as " here's the Herald, ?look out for squalls?where are the scavengers 1 ?three cheers for the apple-women," and numer ous other shrewd and pointed remarks, with which it is said his Honor was not over delighted. As evening approached, several remarkable indi cations were observable that events were beginning to thicken, and that before the expiration of the first day of the New Year, there would be some spicy and unique doings in Gotham. About that hour, which suggested itself as the one after din ner, there might, to an observant eye, be seen omi nous gatherings of devil-may-care-looking fellows j about the entrances of grog shops, hotels, and cars-1 vansaries; knots of industrious yawners about lamp posts, and sundry picquetsof rollicking sailors making their way up town, to kick up a spree, and look out for chances. By and bye, the disposition of these numerous forces had undergone a change; formations on a most extensive scale took place in side, instead of outside the grog shops; a great noise of glasses in motion succeeded, and in a short time the traveller in the streets was inter cepted, occasionally by men "half seas over," and others " hard up." Towards sunset, the nui sance had increased to a great extent; indeed, there is hardly a street a person entered, but several " decided cases" of intoxication presented them selves to the sight, and by ten o'clock those who were "glorious"?within the grog shops and with out?were past computation. About this hour they began to become pretty noisy, and we understand that several very gallant affairs came off between the votaries of Bacchus and the Watchmen, in which the latter invariably came off second best.? A Isrge quantity of gunpowder was expended in the course of the day, and to the great credit ot grocer's attaches, and draper's assistants, grand mother's pets, and unruly schoolboys?the most interminable cracking of pistols?pocket, cavalry, revolving and every other sort?met the ear, wherever there was an open door or gateway?or any convenient apeiture through which to make the folks in the street smell powder. Now, and again too,we were gratified by a procession of ama teur originals, decked out in grotesque toggery, and fantastic habiliments, whichj was invariably attended by an incredible number of steady boys, staggering striplings, and stupid adults. At one lo cality, the whole blessed day was spent in guess ing tor a pig; in another they were content to pay tor the pteasurs of shooting at one; but whether their eye teota were not cut, or that the potations of the holidays had interfered with their eye-sight, is not up?? cord; at all events, the aforesaid ani mals came off unscathed, muck to the delight of all who reprobate cruelty to animals. The eeveral places of amusement were literally crammed on New Year's night; the theatres es pecially, each and all of them enjoyed a fruitful benefit?plenty of noise and plenty of wool too ; but in some cases the torrent of numbers and whirl wind of mirth ran so high, that the worda of a famous general were applicable?" another such victory would bo our ruin." All these theatricals will be found olsowhero. So we will here conclude with obosrving that from all we have seen, it is our opinion that that momentous day?January first, 1845, will never revisit us?that we will not for twelve months have another " New Year's day" ; and that it will take at least three times that period to correct the vice, and eradicate the intemperance and rowdyism, such as we saw on NewYear's night?and which was principally gene rated by the licentious, immoral and factious pro cedure of political dabs and cabals during the la'c election. Stramuhip Acadia left Boston on Wednesda] for Liverpool, with about fifty passengers. Italian Opkka.?There was a good houie at Palmo's on New Year'* day, when Cenerentola was performed for the last time during thin season. As usual, it was well received, and all persons em ployed in it earned hearty and well-merited ap plause, of which Pico took the lion's share. She has now taken strong hold of the public, with whom she is a decided favorite. Her performance of Cenerentola is highly credit able to her artistical conception and correspond ing execution, and lully deserves to be classed amongst the most pleasing appearances on the stage, owing to the timbre and peculiar charm of her medinm, which may be called a mezzotint of unexceptionable beauty, syraetrically tncadri, be tween her upper and lower notes. There is per haps no singer, with the exception of Pauline and Eugenia Garcia, who could surpass her in this most difficult role, which comes within the full range of a mezzo-soprano and contralto, compris ing two octaves from A to A. It is unnecessary to enter into any details as to the manner with which she acquitted herself, since she was faultless Irom beginning to end; but if any thing be entitled to a separate mention, it is the ballad " Una Volt*," in which the low notes formed an admirable con trast to the high ones in the subsequent duo, "Una Urazia," after which the applause was most enthu siastic, as throughout the evening it did not come " single spies, but in battalions," with bouquets instead of "deadly weapons" in their hands.? But the adagio of the rondo finale, the "hobby" of all prime donne, was the gem of the evening given as it was by her with a rare neatness of vo calization aud purity of intonation eclipsing the allegretto of " non pin nueta " in the same pro portion as her sentimental style of singing is supe rior to lier canto ornato. Her little awkwardness of gait was moreover in perfect keeping with the character of Cenerentola, who had not been to a fashionable boarding school, and at the epoch of the opera was still a stranger to the manners ol the bean monde. Pico, the sun, was ably seconded by Antognini, Sanquirico and Tomasi, like as many satellites.? Antognini appeared to suffer a little from indis position, which is to be regretted for his sake, but not for the sake of the public, since it prevented him from forcing his voice to a pitch any thing

but agreeable to "delicate organs." Sanquirico brought, as a New Year's gilt, his whole budget of fun: nor was Tomasi less amusing as Dandini. To-night, Semiramide will be performed for the first time, and being, after Guillaume Tell, Rossini's most elaborate opera, it properly may be regarded as an important event in the musical world, and undoubtedly will be received as such by the public. The rehearsal which took place last evening gives a fair hope for an unrivalled success. The opera is remarkably well studied, the singers are aJl in capital spirits, the scenery the wiuiai iu, ov.1 uvij wie finest perhaps ever Kiduced in this country, the orchestra ready to act e " one man," and even the chorusses?mirabile dictu?appear anxious to be chorusses, for one ope ra at least. Borghese and Pico have splendid parts, with a number of brilliant arias and duos. The duo of the second act between them will probably offer the principal attraction, and at the same time the best opportunity to convince the public ol the tolly to attempt a comparison between two singers so different in voice and style. The Theatres on New Year's Night? Winding up of the first day in 1845 ?The festivities of New Year's day clo sed with a general turn-out to the theatres, all of which were crowded withBuch mixed multi tudes of men and women as can be seen nowhere but in NewJYork, andnowhere in|New York but at the places of public amusement on holiday nights The principal part of the fun was, as usual, in front of the foot-lights; and here scenes were enacted of far more stirring interest, more original and dramatic in conception, and more vigorous and effective in execution, than any thing in the way of " new and popular pieces" produced by the ma nagers within a twelvemonth. The genuine ro mance of real life was here witnessed in all sorts of variety; "after which," (to use the language of the play-bills,) the farce, in a great many queer acts, of high life belowfstairs, was performed with the full strength of the company," and " with the most unbounded applause." Determining to see all that was to be seen, wc took an omnibus to the Chatham, where we were so lucky as to get a full view of the crowd who had rushed in and filled every part of the house, so thai u was really difficult to breathe amid the in numerable steams and aromatic New Year's odors with which the whole atmosphere was impregna ted. The pit was a sea of "monstrous heads;" and although there were apparently a great number of vacant faees, yet such a thing as a vacant seat wa* not to be thought of. A good portion of the pittites finding the weather rather warm, bad pulled of! theurcoats, probably for the purpose of giving free play to their lungs, as the yelling, hooting, whist lug, and car-calling were fierce and uninterrupted At the Bowery and Olympic it waa quite as bad Indeed, a portion of the Bowery audience fairly forced themselves oveflthe orchestra, and tookpoe se^onofa comer of the stage, wiicn th^Tfd fn nfwf UBil1 at lcn#h dislodged by . ?'V i-AB apple on the nose as a un^r.

[From Albany Argus, Jan. 1.] Yesterday afternoon, three more ol our military com panies?the Albany Republican Artillery, the Van Rens selaer.Guards and the Washington Riflemen (a German corps)?were put under otders, by the Commander-in Chiet, and despatched to Hudson by an Extra train last SLrrangements had been made by the Adjutant General by whioh these troops were sent immediately on the ar ural of the Boston and Housatonic trains. They left, indeed, in a few hours after the requisition from Hudson reached this city?and as they wero met byan Extra train from Hudson at tha junction, they probably reached their destination about midnight. It is proper to add - to counteract the various rumors occasioned by this prompt movement?that the reinforce ment was deemed necessary by the Mayor ot Hudson and the Sheriffof Columbia, who united in the requisition that the requisition.was accompanied by affidavits from persons well informed of the movements of the Anti renters, going to show that tbsy contemplated a sudden movement upon the city of Hudson, and upon the jail, with a view to rescue the prisoners in custody?and that for this purpose they had been perfecting an organize, tion for several days. It is enough to say, that the infor mation thus received from reliable sources, was deemed anttioient by the Mayor and 8heriif to warrant extraordi nary measures of precaution and defence. We learn from Hudson that the mounted troops from New York had arrived to the number of 70 or SO, snd had reported themselves to the Sheriff. The force, subject to his order, ia now about 800, exclusive of the volunteers on duty from Hudson.

Dec. 80,1844. You have heard that on Thursday a warrant was put in the handaoi the under sheriff te arrest James Reynolds, oi Copake. He went alone, and on his arrival the horn wu blown, as I understand, from Reynolds' house, while he was running aorota the field. The under sheriff left for home but waa overtaken and surrounded. After com pelling him to read all his papers and threatening him with a good coat if he ever came again, they let him go. The sheriff then resolved to go in lorce tha next time.? The Burgesses Corps of your city were then called on, and every man was anxious to be ot the number of the turnout. Lieut. Townsend took a part of his company and a part of the Court House Guards, and left the city with the deputy sheriff at one o'clock Saturday night ? They "dropt down on Reynolds' about seven o'clock on Sunday morning. The horns were blown in every di reclion; but the deputy end Use Corps shoved direct upon the house and the man Reynold*.

(From Albany Journal, Dec. 31.] We understand from e citizen whe came up wiih des patches, that the Sheriff, in company with a posse con sisting of about twenty of the Burgesses Cot pa, started Saturday to make further arresta of person* implicated in the murder et Smoky Hollow. Two person* of the neme of Reynolde, father end sen,were arrested, under circum stances which, as related to us, would almost f ?m the basis of a three volume novel, or et least a decent sued novelette We tell the tele u told to us, believing it to be in the main, strictly corrsct. The posse surrounded the house of Reynolds, which, upon their approach, nas been doubly barred, and put in a state of defence against the anticipated siege. Admittance being peremptorily re fused, was effected without leave, by cutting the door In to pieces The son was encountered in the doorway, who attacked the Aret soldier, and endeavored to strike up his bavonet. But while thus engaged, he was floored by a stroke from the bayonet of another member of the Corps, and waa secured. Then came the hunt for the "old one," and it was e long end weeaisome business ? A glimpse of the fugitive would be obtained ae he entered a room, and close upon his heel* poured in the poise, but the bird had flown, although no mode of egress was visi ble, except by the chimney. Boon word would he brought that the bird had made hi* appearance in another quarter at the building, end again would be re-enacted tha appear ence, the chase, and the mysterious disoppeeranee. it ap peared that the houae'waa supplied with trap doors and con venient chimneys, almost without numbsr, end thus was the chase prolonged, until even the patience of the posse began to be exhausted. But at last the fugitive had been hunted to the garret, whither the posae lolloued, and, theugh enveloped in Egyptian daikneaa. begra a search for the gentleman witli their bayonets. Silence prevailed, broken only by the successive plunges of tho bayonets into the rafters, Ac , until a yell proclaimed that the search waa successful. Lights were brought, and the Sinner was found pinn'dtothe wall, the bayonet hav r pissed through one of his hands. Thus successfully terminated the exploring expedition. The seme posse also came in sight of about ft# Indians, who Immediately took to flight, the pursuers separated, and by taking different path* endeavored to corns out ahead of the flying detachment.

Mlddletown, Orange Co. [Correspondence of the New York Herald ] Middlitown, 1st January, 1845. J. G. Bennett, Esq. Dear Sir : We are in a blaze cf excitement hero owing to the wars and rumors of wars which reach us irom the upper counties. Our military men a:e trem bling in their shoes, and watching every mail with the expectation of receiving marching ordera from headquarters. 1 said trembling?but not with fear, lest they should not come in for a fair share of the glory of this most inglorious war; for they are aa orave a set ot tellows as ever " Shouldered a cratch To show how lields are won." But Beriously, and to the point, in reference to these anti-renters. In the first place, we doubt, in this region, whether Gov. Bouck has the authori ty to call out a single regiment to act against these men ; and nothing will be done, on an extensive scale, until Gov. Wright assumes the chair, when a special act will be passed for the raising troops, it necessary?providing ot arms, provisions, Sec., dec. . Secondly, there are not organized troops enough in the state to conquer the anti-renters, and for this reason: These men known every nook and corner and crevice?every by-place?every covert and place of ambush within their boundaries, and to meet them in open fight, upon a fair field, will be impossible. If we have war it will be alter the manner of the Semiuoles. Whoever is ac quainted with the localities which they inhabit must see at once the truth and force of these argu ments. Again, they are much stronger, have greater resources, and are under better discipline than has been even thought ot by those residing at a great distance. For the last three years they have been steadily at work preparing for the storm with which they are now threatened; and it is said by those who know, that they have a fund of more than #80,000 on hand, which they will know how to use when the moment comes for action. This money has been raised by a voluntary contri bution ot one and a halt cents on every acre of land on the domain. In the counties ot Greene. Columbia, Delaware, Scoharie, parts of Ulster and Suillvan, they can, at the shortest notice, call out an army ot more than fifteen thousand of able bodied and determined men, who, fighting after the mode at which 1 have hinted, would make dis astrous work amongst the strongest force which can be sent against them. What then is to be done, supposing that the worst should coma to theiworst 1 All that can be done, effectually, is to proceed, in open day, to their cleared lands, take away their wives and children, to a place of security, drive away their cattle, destroy the implements of husbandry and take other like steps, and depend upon it, they will shortly sue for peace, and come to terms. It is useless, in my poor opinion, to expect that these men will ever be put down by the force of shot and cannon balls, if it is attempted many a poor fel low will find daylight shining through his earthly tabernacle before he dreams of it. Nothing new in our quiet, flourishing, and lite rary village. I am rejoiced at the rising fortunes of iny old friend, Harris, of Tennessee. He is as tine a fellow as ever followed pen-craft for his bread and butter. Success to him in his new ca reer. Truly, yours, M. B.
