NEW. VOKK IIEKALU. New York, 1 uewtay, January 7, 1MB* A New Crista Approaching?The Abolltlea (Question In New York. We give in our columns to day, a moat re murk a ble and extraordinary article, purporting to come from tlie celebrated Alvan Stewart, Esq., one of the principal leaders and representatives of the abo lition party in the State of New York, ever since the moment of its organization. This paper may be considered as the manifesto of the aboli tionists of this State, numbering now nearly 20,000 in one compact party. It declares their present purposes?their views?their ieeliugs?their notions of Southern slavery?and all the consequenoea which may spring from such convictions in their minds. Although we differ entirely from many of the statements contained in this remarkable document, and disapprove in the most decided manner of its denunciations of the Southern planters, we are yet unwilling to withhold any of these matters from the public, because by viewing the whole ground of the crisis which is now approaching in this country on this question, we will the better enable those whose interests are connected with the perpetuation of the Union as it now exists, to take time by the forelock, and prevent a dtnow mtnt that would be inevitably fatal to tree institu tions. There is a bitterness of feeling?a refined energy ol reproach?and an obstinate blindness to the really excellent and amiable characteristics of the Southern institution of slavery evinced in ail the movements of the abolitionists, which indi cate that a spirit of ruthless fanaticism is more en gaged in them, than any feeling connected with philanthropy or patriotism. It is proper that all this should be known and clearly discerned. We must not conceal, but expose and grapple with ap proaching dangers. We cannot shut our eyes to the various indica tions of a settled purpose in the various sections of this Union to bring about an important crisis in the history of the country, the end of which no man can foretell. In South Carolina we see the State Legislature and the public functionaries, and the popular voice assuming such a resolute, deter mined, and energetic character, as clearly indi cate that in that region no interference will be permitted with the existing institutions, and no compromise allowed. They even go farther, and denounce any interference with so much bitterness that one would suppose that they would to a cer tain extent, rather see the dissolution of the Union itself, than any further steps against their domestic institutions matured in any other section of the country. Whilst this is going on in South Caroli na, an equally energetic, but directly opposite spirit has just developed itself in Massachusetts.? In psmphlets and declarations, in petitions and po litical movements, the abolitionists of Massachu setts have declared their purpose to be the effecting of a change in the Constitution of the United States, the ultimate abolition of slavery, and the expunging of that clause which gives protecting power to the owners of slaves in the South, or the alternativft.of a dissolution of the Union at once. This spirit of fraternal discord on the question of slavery is fanned and invigorated and strengthened by the movements in this State, and in the other free States; and on all lands, from all the different centres of action on this question, we see the tokens that some serious collision of public opinion is about to take place throughout the country on this important subject of controversy, now preci pitated on us all by the discussions on the annexa tion ol Texas. During the last fifty years, the Consitution of this country,in iu present form, has worked remark* ably well. It is true this Constitution in its practi cal workings has exhibited itself altogether differ ently from what was anticipated by its founders It was supposed by these venerable sages that a House of Representatives, emanating immediately from the people, and a Senate coming from the States, would constitute a mutual check, and, united, present a counterpoise to the single influ encs of the Executive, thus forming a free repre sentative Government of the purest, most liberal, and most energetic character. The political action of the country, under the Constitution, has present ted quite different results from those anticipated. The checks and counterpoise have been quite differ ent. From the commencement of the administration of Washington, wejhave seen the organization of two great popular parties, dividing the Union into two great masses, without reference to a House of Representatives or the Senate, and during the last fifty years these two parties, acting on each other indiscriminately through the two Houses of Con gress, and through the President, have produced all our legislation?all our negotiations?and all the political phenomena, of which the history of the country gives a practical record since that time. The government of this country has disclosed a piece of machinery altogether different from that chalked down in the Constitution. The existence of these two great popular parties, with somewhat dif ferent tendencies, and differing only on certain do mestic and foreign questions, but generally agreeing on the main principles of the Constitution,has given us all the prosperity which has spread itself over the land during the present century up to this time. If such a natural arrangement of the working ele ments of the government should be broken up by any new principle of division or disturbance, we do not know what may be the consequence to the peace and integrity of the country hereafter. Now, then, we hold that the introduction of the element of abolition in the Northern States, with the violent, but quite natural, opposition to that element developed in the South, which has made its appearance during the last few years in this country, constitutes one of the most gloomy and threatening aspects of the present time. We have no time to-day to investigate this subject in all its details. It is too vast to be disposed of in a single article. But enough has been (said to show that the aspect of the time is threatening; and threaten ing from the presence and progress of these dis turbing elements. We believe that abolition is a spirit of evil in the North and in the South. This spirit now controls 66,000 voters in the free States These spirits are called from the " vasty deep and if they should increase and agitate, the conse quences may be the disturbance of the relations now subsisting between the .two great parties ol the country, and the production of a crisis, ending in civil war, before we know where we are. We have much to say on this subject before we have done with it. Look at tks Monet you Receive ?We advise every one who has small dealings to look at the bills offered in payment for work or wares. Just read our money article to-day, in reference to the circulation of a New Jersey Bank, called the " Plainfield Bank," which has extended greatly ol late, and is now in a doubtlul position, in conse quence of this expansion and other reasons stated. It is always best for the working people to be on the safe side. Refuse the bills of all these doubtful banks started at a distance, asd take nothing but good New York money for your work or labor! Now that prosperous times are returning, we may expect all the shin-plaster financiers to be busy in their efforts to circulate their trash as they did is former years. Mormon Ar/AiRS.?The Governor of Illinois hat sent a special message to the Lt gislatnre relative to the recent *' Mormon Difficulties." It is a lengthy document, and gives a complete history of the oc currence which led to the death of Joe Smith.? The Governor takes ground against (he repeal of the charter of the city of Nauvoo, but is in favor of modifications. Notwithstanding this, it is sup posed that the charter will be repealed?the bill to ihat effect hnvivg unanimously pasted th- Senate on the 19th inst Bishop Onderdonk's Cask ?The papers are lull ?1 all sorts of speculations and statements relative to this remarkable case. In the Suauay paper from which we extracted an article yesterday, and in a penny newspaper which was particularly indus trious in circulating a variety of exaggerated ru mors, the charges against the Bishop are stated as set forth in the presentment, but not as sustained by the testimony. Thus in the case of Mrs Butler, the presentment charged the Bishop with rudely putting his hand underneath her clothe*, but this the lady most unequivocally denied on her exami usiion. The fourth charge waa pnt in the present ment without the oath of nay party. It waa aban doned on the trial, and the lady referred to in itad dreaaed a letter to the Court complaining of the un warrantable liberty taken with her name by the presentera. The third charge, with respect to im~ proper liberties with a young lady in a public stage, was made on the oath of a third party who had the matter oa hearsay, and it waa aot sustained by the Court. The great injustice and folly of keeping the investigation secret is now rendered very ap parent by the circulation of these exaggerated ru . mors and statements. We perceive that the Rev. Mr. Trapier has pub lished a pamphlet, oi which & synopsis is given in the Journal of Commerce of yesterday, narrating the preliminary steps taken in the case, and endea voring to disprove the allegation that the prosecu tion had anything to do with the Puseyite contro versy. But in this very.publication the reverend author acknowledges that the ordination of Mr. Carey led to thia inquiry into the immorality of the Bishop, and that it waa never thought of before! But the most curious statement ia that in the Courier and. Enquirer, which appears to be placed in a very peculiar predicament with respect to the Episcopate here. After a long investigation of the position into which the Bishop has been reduced, the Courier comes to the conclusion which is perfectly analagous to a solution of that mysterious question which could not be set tled by Dr. Wainwright and Dr. Potts? "can a church exist without a Bishop 1" The church, in this diocese, is now virtually Without a Bishop, and the Courier appears to be excessively bothered by this awful fact. It pours out a column of lamentation, and winds up by affectionately imploring Bishop Onderdonk to resign, in order that the church may get a Bishop. The result of this investigation, viewed in its connection with Puseyism, Mr. Carey, the im moralities of the Bishop, the character of the clergy, aad every thing else with which the case has been mixed up, is certainly most singular. It gives us a glimpse of practices, purposes, con duct and motives of clergymen, that will pro duce an enduring impression on tl\p public mind of thejpresent and succeeding generations. It is well known to the community at large, par ticularly to that portion of it which is called "the ungodly," that the clergy of all denominations claim a monopoly of every thing like virtue, mo rality, decency, respectability, piety and religion. 2 his claim is put forth on every possible occasion, and with all imaginable pomposity, and in order to enforce it with greater emphasis on the public mind, it is usual for those who present it, to couple with it a condemnation of all those public institu lions, elements, and agencies, which are likely to come into collision with the pulpit in governing or influencing the popular mind. We have often seen, for instance, with what violence and inso lence the clergy of the Episcopal church, to say nothing of those of other churches, have assailed the public press, falsely representing it as evil, and only evil, and that continually. They have inveigh ed at length against the indecencies and impurities of the newspapers, and have labored hard to show that its conductors are the most worthless and cor rupt men in existence. But lo! when the curtain is raised,.what is the spectacle presented by the daily walk and conversation of these very clergy 1 The truth is, that there is a vast amount oi hypocrisy, immorality, and impurity in the ranks of the clergy. Amongst those who minister at the altar, there are we know, many amiable, pious, and holy men, learned in their calling, and true to their holy vows and their God. Yet, in conse quence of their peculiar condition in the present enlightened age of the world, their tiprit dt carpi leads them into the commission of such uncharita bleness, hypocrisy, and immorality, as make the angels weep when they look down upon this lower earth, and witness such sad developments as those just revealed to this community.? These things will, we believe, sink deep into the public mind, and ultimately the world will open to a full conviction of the truth that the cause of pure and undeflled religion must look for its j best advocacy and vindication, not to a privileged order of priests, but to a free, enlightened, fearless, and virtuous newspaper press. How often have the Episcopal Clergy, declared in their pulpit against such a press ! We now fling back their impudent 1 denunciations in their very teeth, and direct their consciences, burning to the very centre, to the acts and conduct of their own consecrated confe derates. School roa Seamen ? Its Advantages to the Country.?With the startling fact staring us in the face, that less than one fourth of the seamen on board American ships are natives, it is strange that no powerlul effort is made to bring into ser vice ttie thousands who are eagerly seeking em. ployment on the seas. In the last few days wr have examined into the system oi naval schools as introduced by Thomas Goin, of this city, and are constrained to look upon it as the one necessary for this country in correcting the evil of a scarcity of native sailors in our service. There are now in existence only 8,260 native, and 200 naturalized seamen in the United States.? This number embraces every sailor afloat or ashore who can claim a birthright or any other right to America. Against this small number our navy gives employment te 7,000 seamen ; our whale ships to 17,000; and our merchant ships to 20,000 ? making a total of 44,000 We have here at a glance the lamentable fact, that our ships are man ned by four-flftha foreigners, thus placing our whole national and mercantile marine en tirely in their power in the event of a war. In case of any collision with England, we must depend wholly upon the "green hands" from the interior, and upon the Swedes, and all other but the English seamen now in our service. In this view a war be* tween this country and England would be a sad one for us for the three or four first years, or until enough " green hands" become whipped into " or dinary seamen." Would it not be better, In this aspect of the case, to whip the "green 'una" into nautical knowledge before a war set in, by establishing naval schools at this port, Boston, Norfolk, and New Orleans? Would it not be bet ter to do this now, when there are so many me chanics' and farmers' sons ready to become sail ors?anxious, indeed, to buffit the mighty ocean 1 The naval school system, such as we have spoken of, was first thought of by an American, whose whole life has been spent among seamen, and who is, therefore, thoroughly acquainted with the wants of Americans in this respect. This system was adopted here four or five years since, and found to woik admirably?so well, in fact, that it was abandoned in two years after its organization, by a few old commodores, because it did not originate with them. It has been, however, introduced in France on the plan suggested by Mr. Goin, whb was on a visit to that country a year or two ago, and the schools at Bordeaux have now nearly two thousand pupils. We state these few facts in order to stimulute Congress to move in the matter. Trial for Arson ?The trial of Cicero Wintei bottom, for anon, committed in Water street, som months ago, is set down for this day, before ludg Kent, in the Court of Oyer and Terminer On Bull's Faekwxll Concert ?Tlie an nouncement of a. farewell concert, with the " Nia gara," the "Solitude of the Prairie," and the " 18 h Psalm," the great compositions of the smetlro, drew together a very large and brilliant audience last evening at the Tabernaele. The weather was excessively inclement, and a severe snow storm set in at dark and continued with great violence throughout the evening; but the un paralleled popularity oft Ole Bull conquered even the elements, and filled the house with fashion and beauty. The following is an exact account ol the audience Ticket* sold 1,0?1 Complimentary 208 Total. 3,164 This, considering the circumstances to which we have alluded, and which were quite enough to have broken up any ordinary public entertainment, is the greatest and most substantial compliment ever paid to a single artist in America. Of the performances it is not necessary for us to speak in detail. Ole Bull was never in better spirits, and never were his splendid talents displayed to greater advantage, notwithstanding the unfavorable cor. struction of the house. He was greeted with loud and enthusiastic plaudits at every piece, and the furort was evidently as great in hia favor as it has ever yet been. So far from exhadsting his popu larity in New York, bis frequent appearance hae made us better acquainted with his wonderful and almost inappreciable gifts, and enlarged our capa city for enjoyment to such an extent that we never can have too much ol him. He is always fresh, always delightful. During the performance of the "Carnival of Venice." which was frequently interrupted by un controllable bursts of applause, a splendid blonde beauty in the west gallery threw a bouquet, made of munificent white roses, fastened with a white satin ribbon, at the feet of the master. When he had concluded, he took the gift, pressed it to his heart with a low bow to the fair donor, and retired amid a storm of applause and enlist which silenced the driving tempest without. He promptly returned and played " HaihColumbia and Yankee,Doodie" in a style to render them a fitting token of grati tude, and a parting gift to his friends in New York. We learn that, after a concert at Newark, and another at Biooklyn, daring the present week, Ole Bull goes south to spend the winter. In the spring we bE&II expect him again iu New York, where he will be, to uae a moat expressive figure, "as wel come as the flowers in May." Psacx in Hudson.?The news from Hudson and the adjoining counties to Columbia is that ever) thing is quiet. It is in contemplation to withdraw some of the troops stationed in Columbia county. [From Albany Atlas, Jan. 4.1 We were informad by a gentlemanjfrom Hudson yester day, that a meeting or Anti-renter* waa held below that city the previoai nighi, and the attendance of two of thi citizens was requested, who went down to them. It was stated to the gentlemen while there, that all thought* ol reaistanoete the laws would be abandoned if they could be aaanrsd that no more arrests would bo made. Such a promise,*! course could not be given, and the meeting broke up without determining npon any thing, bnt witu the evident fooling that no more outrages would be cdm mitted. Last night a party were to go out to capture three field pieces known to be in the hand* of the Anti-renter*. We were requested to atate that a detachment of 80 men of the Emmett Guards, under command et Lieut. John T. Gough, accompanied the Burgeasea on their excursion upon a requisition of-the Sheriff on the night of the Slat We understand, that a few day* since, Mr*. Van Rensse laer, lady of William Vau Rensselaer, one of the proprie tor* of the Rensselaer manor, waa driving out in ner car riage, she encountered a party of Anti-Renters in the dir. guise of Indians, who approached and deliberately unhar nessed the horses from the carriage They then retired fo the aide of the road, where they discussed the queatien whether they should carry off the lady or not. Much fo her relief, the decision, after some debate, was in the negative: the Indians withdrew, and thus ended what seemed likely at first to prove a romantic, and to the lady, a Jiaagreeabfe adventure.

PURGATORY. The Canonieity ef the Apocryphal looks. TRADITION versus HERESY. Judas Maccabeus versus Queen Elizabeth, Edward the Sixth, and Martin Lnther. A LECTURE. Delivered la Ot. Peter's Choreli, by Rev. Dr. Pisei on Sunday, Jen. 9, 1849. [conclusion ] And making a gathering, he sent twelve thousand drachms oj silver to Jerusalem for sacrifice to be offered for the sins of the dead, thinking well and religiously concerning the resurrection (For if he had not hoped thai they that were elain should rise again, it would have seemed superfluous and tiasn to proy for the dead ) And because he considered that they who had fallen asleep with godliness had great grace laid up for them It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought lo pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins.?Maccabeus xij., v. 43, 44, 43, 46. I know tliat there are objection* altered against the i, but I also know that r book* of the Maccabees, but I also know that theie are ob jections made against every hook esteemed canonical by infidels ; and must 1 reject Genesi i because the infidel sneer* at some passages in it 7 Therefore, when I find objections brought against tlie books of the Maccabees, I view them in the same light as those made against ail tin other books of the Sacred Scriptures. There is one, however, to which I shall allude. It is said that in tb<' second book of the Maccabees, the author apologises fot Imperfection* of atyle?therefore they could not be in spired, otherwise there could be no necessity for an apology. He says, " Which if 1 have done well, and a* becometh a history, it is what 1 desire, but if not, it must be pardoned me." Now, it ia stated that if they are in spired they would be done perfectly, and therefore there would be no nqfessity to claim pardon (or the writer. This ' anew ~ " ' " . -? can he easily answered by referring to Uth chapter of Paul's 'id Epistle to the Corinthians, which all admit to be divinely inspired; and yet St Paul here complains of not being perfectly acquainted with the language. He y - ' in kuowledg " says, " if I am rude in speech, I am not in knowledge therefore, if the argument is good against the Maecabees, the same will be good against the writings ot St. Paul, because the former apologises for an imperfection of style, and St. Paul for a rudeness of speech Thus as to the first point of the dilemma?that they are or are not in spired?it seams to me that 1 have adduced sufficient au thority to satisfy any candid inquirer, that these books cf the Maccabees, are entitled te a place among the Canoni cal Scriptures ; and consequently, that the doctrine they teach muat be a true and holy doctrine; and as thev teach a middle place or purgatory, it must be a pure and a holy and an inspired doctrine. If this be the case, I again re peat there is no necessity for proceeding farther in this argument. But I will take now the other side. I suppose and will grant far the sake ol argument, th.t these books are not Canonical; and still, taking these as such, I can prove from their authority that it is useful, and pro per, and good, to pray for tba dead, and that, therefore, there exists a purgatory. In order to prove thia, first put ting aaide their Canonioity?first supposing they are nor Canonical, and on that I propose to found the concluding part of this argument. When I take up tbe article of Queen Elizabeth, " ef the names and number of the Canonical books," I find they do not|include| those they style Apocryphal books, and ot course, among them the books of the Maccabees. Th? article aays?" The other books, a* St. Jerome saith, th? church doth read for example of life and instruction ol manners, yet doth not put them as authority for any dor trine." Now I take the book of Maccabees in thia point 11 view, admitted bythe reformers?that we may read the*. booka called Apocryphal for example of life and instruc tion ol manners. Consequently, I do so. Lread the pa* sage I have quoted a* my text, for instruction of my man ners, and I at once comply with that precept of the great Judas Maccabeus," it is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that toey may be loosed Irom their sins." Even, then, taking it as doe* the Church Of England, as well as other religious denominations, as an example of life and instruction of manners, I sat that an example of life may be followed. Whatever it in culoates of morals or praotice, it produced for my iraitx tion ; and certainly may be adopted for instruction ot m> manners by me; and therefore if I choose to pray a* Judo. Maccabeus did lor the dead, I cannot be condemned It I dont take.lt|a* an essential doctrine, I may as a good ex ample of lile, and therefore all the hue and cry we hea against purgatory mast be hashed into silence. Bat tbh is not all : Are not the books of the Maccabees at least ? most venerable history 7 Why are they bound up in the
Bible, although they are considered Apocryphal 7 Be cause they are a venerable and most excellent history, s' least. Tbevare a history more venerable than that < t Livy, or of Thocidldes, tha most ancient of profane histo rians. Now, 1 read,them as a history, and what dt thej tell me as a mere history 7 Thev tell me that it was th'< custom in those early ages to pray lor the dead among th< Jewa, and they were the true people of God, and receive the doctrine from the O mnipotent hi maelf, through then inapired legislator. Consequently it is a true doctrine, a wo learn Iron the moat indi>nutable history- Again, i learn irom it that that moat enlightened man and vaiiar general? he who lought lor the liberties of hi country, prayed for |thc dead| Judas Maccabeus sen money to the temple in order to have prayers for th dead,"lor it ia therefore a holy and wholesome thought t> pray far the dead, that they may be loosed froaa thei sine." These boohs were written before the birth < H before Christ, before the very eyes of the Jews, and at leat I wMh the sanction of the Sanhedrim itself-, and as it wa 1 never oon*radicted and always admitted by them, I then I fore learn that the people of God prayed tor the dead, an I admitted a middle state, and that this middle state wa-1 whet we style, merely for the sake of brevity, Purgatory I Thie subject ia copious and inexhaustible. But befon I I conclude thie, my first lecture on this doctrine, it is ni I cessary to answer one question. We know, from all 1 have mM, that this doctrine comes from the days of fh- | Apostles, if we believe the testimony of the earliest and most venerable writers of the church. When was Purge ? tory first introduced? Ash me not when it was first intn I duced,because we know before the timed Christ it was a custom of the ancient Jewish peopie,end from them admi ted into the ohristi in religion. The oan introduc- ? nothing, nor Invent no article of faith, but can only bin-'l down those received from the Apostles, and wo belie v. I nothing unlMS wo areaatiafied the Apostles taught them I know that there is abroad a strange rumor that wr teach the Church ia iafollible, and oan Invent a dootrin> one day and explode it the next, and that we ere boun to believe all akoh doctrine. We believe no such thing this is en abenrdity. We believe the C hurch has received a sure and certain oodt of doctrines from the Apostles, t< be handed down to the latest generation, and all the doc triaes we believe ere contained in that code ; that the; were not introduced by men, hat taught by Christ him self-and among theso, Pesgatory stands prominent. But who was the first individual who attacked the doctrine of Purgatory ? The first thne it was directly and openM attacked was in the fourth century, in the lifetime of B. Augustine and Bt Epiphaniua, by a priest named lereui, who asserted that it was not lawful to pay for the dent' What waa the oonseqeenoe ? He was instantaneousI; condemned aa c beaetio by St. Auguatine, Epipliai iui and all his contemporaries, because he taught a doc trim in opposition to that reoaived from tbe days of the Apot ties. And this is c strong and irrefragable argument when we fled such men as Bt. Augustine, end Tertullrai and Epiphaniua, counting this man among the numbs of the heretics, because |he.invented his dectrine, whic). has been numbered among the heresies by all the grest writers of that day. I will conclude this evening witi one quotation from fit. Isidore of Seville, in the fourth century, who he* thoee words?1' Since the people ssod Ace for the repose of the faithiul departed, in all parts ?.f the world, we believe the Apomlee left us this custooa b\ tradition; for tho Church, in all placet, obaervm it, an: If ahe did not believe that the faithful could obtain pardor for their sins, why would ahoaheriflce for them?" I win continue next Sunday evening this some subject, and produce, in vindication of it, several very important texts of Bacred Scripture. Chanesry. Before Vice chancellor MeCoun. Jaw. 0-Decisions - Peter WntervtU vs. John H. Ho fit al?This was an appeal from a decree et the Court in re lation to the tale ot certain property by a Mr. Speck. Th< Court waa of opinion that Mr. fipeck must apply to the Chancellor to dismiss the rppafif so tar as it waa taker from that part of the decree, which direots a sale of the premises No SB McDougal street, for aa to that portior of |the decree, as well as other portion* appealed from. Hit Honor said, I am apprehensive the appeal operates as a stay by virtae of tho 80th sec. of the statute relating to appeals. At the tame time, 1 think it aught not to have the.tffect of delaying Mt. Speck In the "recovery of hit mortgage debt; bnt 1 see no other wa; " way lor to takers cept to dismiss the appeal, go for aa it stands in the way of a sale for his benefit Ruled accordingly. David S. Jonoo et al vs. fittk B. Roherti ft al ?This was an exception to a Master's Report, brought before the Court lor what is teobnioally called impertinence to a part of (be answer of the defendant, Roberts, to th< amendment of the b ll. It arises out of the answer to | amendment No. 2 It appeared to the Court that all tha1 aHof the answer whicn undertakes to show that a part) ?^?-eated, named A. N. Lawrence, waa insolvent, not I withstanding his failure, provided justice was dene to him by re-stating the eospnnta between him and th? testator's estate, and striking a large balance in hk favor instead of a large baianoo against him, aa was ascertained by Master McDonald* Report in the yeat 1802, is impertinent. That occurring before an officei of this Court and undar its ordar, because final an.' conclusive, it establish*! a large debt against the said A. N. Lawrence, whtob he took no legal measures to shake off, and of oonoequenns must he decreed to have acquiesced in Uafiauig forever fastened upon him. Aa he cannot now bo permitted to disturb that settle ment, so neither can a third person, or stranger, and I more especially such an ovMhauling ef the accounts at this answer aeu*p cannot be allowed in a collateral suit or proceeding, it jgolati to my mind that the defendant. Roberts, cannot bar Mrmitted to show, in this way, that |Lawrence was not insolvent in 1884, and continm d so tr this present time, AU that statement ef the answer therefore, is impertinent. But the question still is. whetbei exception, as taken, does not cover too much ground Tho defendant insists, that it embraces words which art fairly raaponsivo to the bill, and ought, therefore, to re main ; and that, if any part of the exoeptinn ia Improper the whole exception must fail. Owing to the pecuiiai phraseology ef the answer in the 16th folio, anJ again if the 41st folio, H ia rather difficult to ?ay thai there aru no' I tome expressions of denial, meeting directly the allrgiv I insolvency, its oontlauatiou, and the defendant's know I ledge of it?but iu the 43d folio we ere presented with e ami denial on those potato, so full and complete, as to rendes the previous passage* unnecessary in tho answer. 1 shall, ? nam-with -- than fore, conouv with the Masters in allowing this ex ception. and order accordingly.

Tht Strtetn.?The following Message was received from His Honor the Mayer: Major's Orrica, i Now York, Jau Oth, 1846 \ Tt the Hon Tht Common Council oj tht City -ff New York: Oemiemen Among the subjects which 1 consider n my duty to bring before yon, there la perhaps none having Stronger claims upon \oiir attention than that of antffec tual improvement in the manner of paving our streeta Oar great thoroughfare, Broadway, in its general fee tur*f. challenging comparison with any street in the world, with en ample and imposing aide walk, is so rough and broken, that it la extremely uncomfortable to ride through it; and aa the travel must increase with the in crooao of population, there ia reason to believe that until some bolter modeot paving is adopted, the evil which ia n0v will become intolerable. Entertaining these views, I have bestowed much atten .?on upon thu subject, and have collected from various sources all the information within my roach. Of the plans which have been submitted to me, I have avoided all, however meritorious or promising, which were to b? undertaken as new experiments, hut htve conBned my sell to the consideration of thoae only which have been tried, principally in European cities. Among them I have selected one, whioh I now submit to you, and I do so with tho more confidence as it is takei from a oily with which wo have such constant inter course, that some of you may be familiar with its practi cal operation, and all of you can easily inform yourselves in regard to it. This plan is now in successful operation, and givoa uni versal satisfaction, in the city of London. Twenty year, ago the streets of that city were in as bad a condition as our own are now ; about fliteen years ago, after man) costly and unsusceasful experiments, tho present system was introduced. In lbSfi I had an opportunity of observing its operation, and also ot seeing the process of construction It wat then considered a decidedly suooessful experiment; and I have satisfied myself that it has superseded every other plan, and has been Introduced throughout all the prin cipal streets of London. It is the only one that has nsei found capable of enduring the immense travel of carts carriages, omnibusses, wagons and vehicles of ever) description, in the great thoroughfares of that populous city, and It comes to us as tho fruits of their experienc< without the cost of a long course of unsuccessful experi meats. An excavation is made <rom gutter to gutter, to thi depth of 34 inchea : the space excavated 1c filled with concrete, to the depth of 14 inches, aristae towards th> centre, at the rate of 6 inchea in 30 feet. The conereti is made of granite clippings or granite ballast, (tho sam. that is used tor macadamizing roads) and sand and fin< lime in powder, six parts of the former and one part o> the latter whioh, when properly mixed, gets, and becsmet a hard solid mass The surface must be made smooth, and when set, the mass of concrete serves as the foundation for the pave ment. The pavement is either of wood or or granite. Thelatte is here recommended. It is composed of blocks tan inch es in length, ten inches in depth, and five inches broad, rough on the upper surface and sidea, and tha Utter ta pering very slightly towards the bottom. They are lai< diagonally, (sea plan) so as to give horses a good foo hold, and prevent them from slipping. They are no' Sounded (for this would break the suiface of the concrete) ut merely laid side by side in regular order. The inter slices an then filled with liquid mortar, which, adhering to the rough edges, spreading a little at the bottom, an. combining with the concrete beneath, forms the whole into a solid mass 34 inches thick, not likely to be broken and capable ot enduring, unshaken, almost any amoun of travel by the heaviest vehicles. With such a pavement in Broadway, presenting i smooth unbroken) surface from one end to the other, th< noise would be comparatively little, the wear and tearo vehicles would be greatly diminished, the heavy lam' bering omnibuses, which are now indispensable, woalt give place to those ol a much lighter construction, am) horses with incomparably less labor, would be able t> travel with much greater speed. The street would b more easily kept clean, and would be an ornament to th< city, instead ' f being, as it now is, offensive to the eye, and uncomfortable, it not dangerous, to ride over; and, he sides, the grester facility or moving through it wouh tead, perhaps more than any other plan that is likely to be devised, to relieve it of some of the confusion <tnd ob structions which are now so generally and with good rea ton complained of. I take occasion to anticipate one obi iction which may be made to the plan submitted, and that is the ueceasit) of taking up the pavement, from time to time, for the pur pose of repairing the gas pipes and water pip?s. But ti this I answer that the same objection exists in London and perhaps to a greater extent, and it is not found to b< of any serious practical weight. In fact,In some rsspects. such repairs can be made to better advantage than unde the present system; for, alter taking off the layer o granite blocks, all that ia required is a breach through 14 inches of concrete; this is made without disturbing th< solidity of the surrounding mass, aud without the nsko unsettling the foundation ol the street for some distance around, whioh often happens now; and when the i*pair> are finisheJ, and a new stratum of concrete is laid, thi whole becomes as compact and solid as before. The expense of the plan may be urged aa another ob lection against it: but I am of opinion that it would b< found less expensive ta the sequel than the present metbo. Jrom the fact that the durability of its construction wil supercede the necessity of such frequent repairs. 1 w?uld respectfully suggest that at least the distanci of one block be paved after this manner, whioh will or able the Common Council and the citizens to form a suffi cient judgment of the advantages or defects that may w tend it # Ail which is respectfully submitted.

Curiout CKargti.?Mr Chabmck offer ed another reeolution, to direot the Superintendent of Lamps and Gaa, to report the number of proposals receive ?d for contracting for oil, and from whom they reeoivad proposals ; and, also, the estimates for the contract given to George Harris and others ) also, the residence of the said George Harris ; also, the proposala received for the contracts given to James R Sparrow and others ; and if the oil contracted for was delivered, and of prime quality or not. Mr. C. wogld be able to show that this very George Harris was clerk to tha Alderman of tha Eleventh Ward, Mr. Johnson, and also Mr. Kings man, when it woe understood that Mr. Johnson was the Cuair man ol the Committee on Lamp* and Gaa, and that his clerk and partner were the contractors for the oil, which was adulterated at no leas than 90 per cent He had a right to look with suspicion upon the opposition offered to re solutions simply of inquiry by members in their places.? A resolution or inquiry ought not to be objected to by any upright member, no matter how it might operate? and when opposition was oftered.it was always calculated j to excite suspicion. He had evidence to show that Mr. 1 Hari is was Mr. Johnson's clerk, and that Mr Sparrow# was his partner, and if he oould prove he had a direot ini tercet in those contracs, he ^ Mr Is\u?aAW?f /Iaviw (ft fi la falaa I Mr. Johnson?I deny it. It is false. Mr. Chasmck?Dont be In a hurry. You will got enough of It by and bye This oil was contracted for also by a Mr. James R. Sparrow, who ia the partner of Mr. Johnson, and I feel myself hound to correct the abuse Mr. Johhsoh?I shall hold you responsible for anything yon say in relation to me. So, beware ! Mr. Chabmck?I hold the very documents and hava the receipt of this very George Harris, made out on a sale of oil on the part of Mr. Johnson and hu partnsr, Mr. Spar row. 'i hero are gross frauds in question. Ma. Jonnso* (much excited,) 1 shall hold yon respon sible, and 1 call to order. I shall hold yoa responsible, I repeat, before another tribunal, and shall clap a writ npon your back on Monday morning. Ma. Chabuck?You wiUget enough of it. I am pre pared tor you. Ma. Johhsoh?The whole ia a falsehood. V a. Chabmck?Very good It is my right and my dnty to bring th? abuses of the Committee on Lamps and o>l before the Board?and I shall do it, too. It was a fact that Mr. Sparrow, the partner of Mr. Johnson, was one of the Contractors for oil and gas, and that the oil was actually adulterated. He (Mr. Charlick) had no evidence to show that Mr. Johnson was actually interested as one of the contractors?but he was, no doubt, the partner of Mr. Sparrow, and he (Mr. C ) also felt assured that Mr George Harris, another of the contractors, was clerk to Mr. Johnson. By an Ordinance of the City, no member of the Board eonld directly or indireotly be come a contractor, or have any direct or indirect inte rest in it. Mr. Johhsoh considered the remarks of the gentleman ?f the 1st, a gross insult upon bim as a member of the Board The gentleman charged him with participating " he bought out, and the gentleman's in'contracts, Harris I remark* impeached him (Mr. J.) with violation of his oith. He had never been conoerned either directly or indirectlv in any contract. In reference to onr last con tract in Dec*r., we had the estimates brought in, but not having a quamm, we could not give out contracts. Spar row got a oooffset. He (Mr Johnson) did not realize one quill Irnm the contract with his copartner The gen tleman from the flrat, himself sold to Ainu House Com missioners He was willing to let the resolution pass to go to Superintendent The oil in question he had teste* and found it perfectly good. Sparrow was employed in Spring as the lowest bidder, and he (Mr. Johnson) had employed Harris to oolloct his bills, and if that was being a clerk, Harris was his slerk, and he admitted it. Mr'.CNABMcx?Poor bnsiness for a contractor, to ba a mere clerk, employed to collect Mr. Johhsoh?That cant be helped, and that is his own sffsir. In reference to the copartnership alluded to, I hava onlv to say I hava nothing to do with thia contract. Cbarlick himself was a contractor last year. Mr. Cbarlick himself was a contractor last year. Mr. Cmaemck?No. sir. Bat thia has nothing bow to do with the qneatiou before ns Mr Jorbm*.-I deny, before God, that I am a contrac tor ; I would falsify my oath; I stand before my Ged. and on my character in this Board, and deny before Ged that I am a contraotor. 1 would be falsifying my oeth - and this attack is made hi retaliation. He (Mr. Johnson) know who employed Mr. Cbarlick Mr. Chabmck?Onlv ten thousand democrats? (Laugh ter.) Mr. JoHmoit?lt la done to make capital for the Spring Election, which ia now coning on. Mr. Ch4bi.icb?it la done to gave tho city $10,000. I intend to atop theae corrupt abuaea. I have not eaid that Mr Johnaon waa directly the contractor, but let the pub lic Judge of the facta. Mr. JoHnaon waa of the opinion that the attack waa made upon hia reputation by the gentleman of the Firat Ward, who did not belong to the majority now in thia Board, aa on laat year. He waa floored. Mr. Chabuck?'Thia ia not meeting the queation. We have the facta eatabliahed that Mr. Harria, after all, waa the Clerk, and Mr. Sparrow the copartner, and unleaa alnce two o'clock to day the oil haa been much improved, it ia certainly very much in need of it.
