auspicious of deceit in professed friends. 1 hav# carried this too far, anu trusted too fully that my own unconsciousness 01 any other than right emo tion, entered also into the apparent sympathy with which I was met. As the result, exaggerations, distortions, mis-statements, have turned to ill what was really so neither in intent nor in deed Evil, to tally undesigned and unthought of by me, and not justly attributable to me, has, by this means, been done to a cause dearer to rncthan life. I humbly trust that I have profitted by the bitter experience, and earnestly pray?und ask the faithful fervent prayers ot the beloved clergy and people of my diocese in my behalf?that this profitting may appear in all that, in my character and conduut, may pertain to the glory of God, the cause of His Gospel, and the purity and prosperity of His Church. I know not how extensively efforts may still be in progress, and y# be multiplied, against me. There are propensities in the natural heart which foster even a love for rendering the unhappy still more miserable, for trampling the fallen still more deeply in the dust, tor closing the door to all tufluence of the re-acting spirit of Christian justice and mercy, and for pushing malevolent design to the utmost gratification. In the Lord put I my trust. To Htm, as the Searcher of hearts, I commit my cause. I thank God that my connection with the diocese which I love so much, whose love to me has con tributed so largely to my happiness, and in whose behalf I have so glaAr and heartily, but, alas, so irnperlecily labored, rt not severed I feel that this imposes upon me a most serious responsibility. 1 a.-k the union with my own, of the prayers of the diocese, that I may be rightly guided: maybe ready and willing to sacrifice to duty all personal considerations j may not forget to cherish, as they should be cherished, reverence and submission to authority; may have grace to be free trorn un christian resentment, for efl'orta that have been made, that may now be making, or that may yet be made, to destroy my character and influence ; and may be led, iu all that may devole upon ine, to such decision and such actiou, as will be approved by the Lord the .Righteous Judge.

To the Editor of the Herald:? It may interest your natives to hear that in next year they will probably receive about 20,000 Germans. There are several companies organizing, of which the following are the chief:? 1st?A large company, under the auspices of German princes and noblemen in Baden and Wur teirberg. most-ol whom engage emigrants to go to Texas, Florida, and the southern country, but most of whom will find their way into the United States, probably Missouri and Iowa. 2d?Those going to Virginia and Ohio, mostly farmers and mechanics, who are engagea by Mr. Stark, the same gentleman who took so active a part in the Zoll Verein treaty. These are mostly Bavarians and Saxons. A company at Antwerp is forming who have bought lands in lennessee, which they intend sell ing to German settlers We have just heard of Mr. Polk's election, which pleases the Germans, as they think he will favor Germany more than Eng land, and if the Zoll Verein Treaty is ratified it is very probable that the supply of cotton twist will be drawn in less than two years from our Eastern S'ates instesd of from Macchesier, which now supplies the Zoll Verein with more than sixteen mil ions of dollars worth of twist. By next packet I will write yoti more fully; and remain Yours, truly, An American Traveller. Claveraclc. [Correspondence ot the New York Herald.] Claverack, Columbia Co., N. Y.. Jan 24 More Trouble in Columbia County?Big Thunder Admitted to Bail? Old Cnpake Triumphant? Sheriff Miller Knocked into a Cocked Hat, and the District Attorney Horribly Frightened. James Gordon Bi-nnktt, Esq. : Things b' gin once more in old Columbia to as sume a serious aspect; we may emphntically ex claim with a gifted son of the Revolution, "tha' the war is actually begun." The pretence of the Ami-Renters to submit to law and order, was a rase oil their part to lull the citizens of Hudson in to supineness, while they could perfect a more effi Cl-nt organization. Yesterday, Doctor B uightoa was taken"from his quiei lodgings in the Hudson jail by a writ of habeas corjnis t?> appear before Russell G Dorr, Supreme Court Commissioner, in the town of Hilsdale, about 20 miles diet mifrom the city; he was attend, ed by Sherifl Miller, and a posse of men in regi mentals, numbering from 30 to 40, under the eom rnand of Gnpt. C. Yates Miller; he appeared verv downcast, and when passing through Smoky Hol low, which brought to his memory the scenes ot more courageous days, he melted in tears They arrived at the place of destination at half past two, when vvas enacted the funniest row my eyes ever beheld Hillndale seemed a little hell; every living Dutchman in the town of Saughtanie and Copake, was there, the hotels and groggeries werejamm d? crowded to suffocation. SheriffMiller was greeted with three gioans, and then a general melie ensu ed The anti-renters fought among themselves. "Downwith the rent" cries one, "up with it," says another; and smash, crack it went, over wa gon and sleighs, through the mud and snow. Now and then could be heard the stentorian voice ol Sheriff Miller, exclaiming " what in God's name do you blame me for I 1 am doing my duty," together with other discordant)sounds, such as "Greens," " I'll do you brown," " hurrah for hell," "murder, murder, let me up," " go it. old boy," " dunder and blixum," " we ben ya, " slaun nane nut," " how up," " who be you!" and other billingsgate slang Dot decent to mention. The fight at last subsided and sheriffMiller made his appearance with his eyes most beautifully dressed in mourning; he had|been the target of the Copake loafers, who put the " drop sockets," as they term their blows, into his face without stint or mercy. When the fight was in progress Big Thunder was taken before Commissioner Doir, and admitted to hail in the sum ot $2000 to appear at the sitting of the Special Oyer, in Hudson. The District Attorney was threatened with death if he opened his mouth. Peter Shaver and Win. A Stickles became his bail, he was instanter taken to Sand Lake, escorted by a delegation of igno rant Dutchmen, from the towns of Copake and Saughtanie, who sang, in a yery taunting man iner, the nigger melody, " Good Iwe, John;" en deavoring thereby to enrage Sheriff Miller. It is concluded here that the. only cure for the anti-rent fever, is the boiler-punching and neck stretching process. More troops are needed im mediately. Yours, in haste, W. L. R. L. Buffalo.

Bishop Ondkkdsnk'b Statement.?We give on our first page the "statement" of Bishop Onder donk. It is an exceedingly interesting document? temperate, calm and dignified. The Bishop cer tainly makes out a strong case, and gives an alto gether new view of the testimony. The statement is, however, perhaps, most interesting to the ge neral reader, from the extraordinary revelation which it gives of the character of pious society In this country. If this "statement" be sustained by the facts, no jury of honest men ever could have found the Bishop guilty. We must, however, still suspend our final judgment till the "Book of the Trial" comes out, which is now looked for with the greatest anxiety. It will be published on Thursday. Crisis of the Texas Question. Yesterday was a most lovely day in New York. The clear sky?the balmy air?the bright sun?all seemed more like a Somhern climate than that of the cold North. The Park looked as if it were just about to put on the green vestments of the joy ous spring, and the Fountain danced and sparkled and leaped as if it had become instinct with life beneath the rays of the noon day sun. An hun dred cannons sent their thundering echoes all over the city and neighborhood, telling every body that something unusual had occurred. And so it was. The Texas question has passed a Committee of the House of Representatives by the unprecedented majority of twenty, and this extraordinary fact has carried astonishment into the minds of all parties and all circles and all classes in the community. Hence the extraordinary excitement?the firing of the guns?the rejoicings in the Park amongst the party of annexationists, and the gnashing of teeth and dreadful anticipations of the future amongst those opposed to the extension of the boundaries of freedom to the utmost limits of this hemisphere. For several days past this community has been agitated on the Texas question, arising from the prominence which it has attained both in this country and in Europe?agitating every district of the United States?exciting a tempest in England, France and throughout the old world?thus dis tinctly showing that the Texas question lathe ques tion of the day, and of the civilised world?the question on which every other subject connected with the policy of the great nations of the old and new world is to turn. Well, it has passed the House of Representatives by the extraordinary majority of twenty?a result which was never dreamed of?and the probability is, according to the best accounts, that it will pass the Senate, by a small majority, it is true, but sufficient to decide the question at once, in favor of extending the boundaries of this republic over the whole area of Texas. This position of the question, will, doubt less, stir the elements of the opposition here and throughout the North, and we expect to see the abo litionists and all those who affiliate with them, and with the views oftheBritish government and the Bri ish press, immediately coming forth in public meet ings aud denouncing t^is movement, whilst on the other hand, the old J effersonian and Jackson de mocracy of all classes and in every section of the Union, are generally concentrating their forces in favor of it. The question may be before the Senate for three or four weeks, and in that interval we have no doubt an extraordinary excitement on the subject will be developed througheut the coun This in undoubtedly one of the most important questions?if, indeed, it be not the most important which has ever been submitted to the decision of the people of this country since the Revolution. It involves, however, merely the continuation, on a broader scale, and at a more important era of the world, of that wise policy which affected the an nexation of Louisiana, which was secured by Jef ferson, and was one of the most important public measures ever carried out by any statesman in this country. This is a second step in the great move ment of the Anglo Saxon race on this continent, and will open the way for future generations to carry out the idea started by Alexander Hamilton, the great statesman, in 1797, when in speaking of the annexation of Louisiana and Florida, he talked of squinting towards South America. Indeed, we already perceive that in Detroit and Buffalo public journals and public writers are beginning to tslk of the propriety and necessity of the annexation of the Canadas to this country as an equipoise to the annexation of Texas, and for the achievement of that purpose, the expediency of opening a negotia. tion with Great Britain for the purchase of those northern British colonies. It will thus be seen that we are on the brink of a great excitement, which will last till the question be terminated one way or another in the United States Senate. The prospects are decidedly that the decision of the people in favor of the an nexation of Texas, as indicated by the election of Mr. Polk, must be carried out by the present mem bers of Congress at all hazards, and at every risk. Let the abolitionists do what they please?let the British press and British monarchists bluster as much as they choose?it is impossible to prevent the ultimate complete triumph of republican prin ciples over the whole of this Mexican continent. Negligence in the Post Office at Washing ton.?Every now and then we have to complain of negligence in the post office management be tween this city and Washington, in relation to the transmission of our correspondence from the capi tal, and we have every reason to believe, after the best investigation we can make, that the blunders and negligence are to be traced to the Washing ton post office. We publish to day, in another column, a very important letter from our special correspondent at Washington which ought to have reached us on Sunday afternoon, but did not come to hand till yesterday morning. We are disposed to believe, from indisputable facts, that the error did not occur here, and that it could have occur red only in the post office at Washington. We, therefore, direct the attention of the Post-master at Washington, to the blundering and negligent manner in which the public business is managed by his clerks. If it is not corrected, we shall insist on a thorough reformation being made in that establishment, from top to bottom, when Mr. Polk comes into power. When the post officials do their duty, we gladly award them the praise which they merit. When they neglect it, we will never hesitate to denounce them in the strongest man ner possible. Theology?Dr. Pise.?The sermon in St. Pe ter's, on Sunday evening, was delivered by Rev. Dr. Pise, who, to the great delight of his hearers and friends, has recovered from his temporary ill ness. The church was crowded to excess; proba t>ly a thousand persons stood 111 the aisles to hear the Word, which had reference, on this occasion, to a very curious as well as momentous dogma ol the Catholic Church, that of Purgatory. As usu al, when Dr. Pise preaches, the discourse com manded unbroken attention of the ae> mb!ed thou sands. A full report of this discourse, prepared with mii'ih care and fidelity, will appear in to-mor row's Herald. It is unavoidably excluded to-day. Where are the Mails!?There are now at least five mails due from New Orleans, and every day the post office arrangements become worse and worse The New Orleans mail has failed for foui days consecutively, and our merchants begin al most to dispair of getting another from that point. Tney look at the beautiful new post office, and ask What is the Postmaster to do with it!" Great Speed.?The Long Island train arrived last evening in nine hours and fifty-five minutes from Boston, exclusive of a delay of ten minutes at Providence. We were furnished with papers by the conductor. Caucus Meeting of tb? Kmplre Club. The Empire Club assembled again last night in St. John'a Hall, to deliberate on some resolu tions to be presented to them for their adoption. At first there were not more than thirty or forty present, as no public notice had been given of the meeting?but towards its close it was greatly in creased and was every moment increasing. Mr. Isaiah Ryndera, President of the Club, stated the objects of their assembling, in a speech ol nearly an hour. His remarks were principally in reply to and confutation of an article in the Morn, ing News, charging him with purposely molesting and disturbing the great democratic assembly, lately held in Tammany Hall. Mr. Rynders took up the points of the accusation in the article of the News, as well as that in the Evening Post, and showed by argument, founded upon his past fideli ty to the democratic party, and his continued adher ence to it, that the last thing he should do would be to disturb such a meeting ; and also he showed the impracticability of doing so without design, preparation, and the organization of the club for that purpose, to whom he appealed, and who warmly sustained him In all his assertions The office seekers came in for a due share too; and the assertion that the Empires hissed the name ot Silas Wright at the Tammany Meeting was brand ed as a lie and a falsehood beyond probability. Capt. Rynders went on at great length in dissect ir.g the articles in the News and Post, but the for mer came in for a double portion of his stringem critique, during which he very Irequently elicited the warmest applause. A committee was appointed, who prepared a sei ?of resolutions, in relation to the Tammany Hall meeting and the slanders of the press on ihe Em pire Club since that event. The substauce of these resolutions, which are too long to insert, was, thai the thanks ot the Club was due to Capt. I. Rynd ers for the manly manner in which he successfully opposed and amended the hole and corner resolu lutions submitted to the Tammany Halt meeting; that the Empire Club was willing to support the regular nominations of the party, but opposed to any exclusive system and favoritism; that tht above meeting being called for the purpose of hav ing an expression of the public voice; it was wrong to allow a man who was an office-seeker?an ap plicant for the office ofPotashes Inspector?to draft the resolutions aud keep them in his hat until the very moment they were submitted to the meeting ?that the Empire Club honored and revered the name of Silas Wright, and would be the ldst in the world to allow him to be aspersed?and that the disapprobation shewn at the meeting waa intended, not for Silas Wright, but for those who wished to make him a stalking horse of their unwonted de signs, and who wished to transfer the contempi shown them off their own shoulders to that ol Silas Wright?that the General Committe had attempted to seil the character of the Empire Club, by assert ing that said Club had hissed Silas Wright?and that this assertion of the Morning News was to be regarded as an unmitigated lie?that the Empire Club would continue to assert its independence, regardless of favor or aliection, and always use iu inalienable right to act its part aud express its views?that it would accord with the direction ol the General Committee as long as that Committec accsrded with the voice of the people, and thai those members ot Congress from this Stgte who had voted lor the Texas bill were entitled to thanks, but those who opposed it deserved re proach and censure. All these resolutions were put and carried with enthusiasm. Alter which it was passed and car ried with immense applause, that the thanks of the Empire Club were due to the Editor ol the New York Herald lor the impartiality and love of trutn hr- has always niauifested in regard to the Empire Club. The meeting than adjourned, and were received by a powerful section of the Club, with a band ol music, at the door, when the combined forces took a small promenade through some of the adjacent streets. Green Room Intelligence.?Madame Pico, Sanquirico and Antognihi, lelt town on Sunday last for the purpoea of singing at a concert ol ihe Philadelphia Philharmonic Society, to-night.? They will return to this city to-morrow, and are engaged to sing at a concert to be given in Boston in a few days. Now that the opera has been bro ken up in thiscity, by the disagreements and quar rels of the artists themselves and various other causes, we unaerstana mat maaame jtico, assisieu by Sanquirico and probably other vocalists,*inteud. giving a series of concerts in the Atlantic cities, and it is expected that, from her position in Un musical world, she will make at least from #1,500 to $2,000 per week for a short time. She is right in making the most of her popularity as long as it is fresh and beautiful. Mad'lle Borghese, Madame Ricci, Perozzi and Tomasi, leave town to-day en route for New Or leans, and will probably give concerts at Philadel phia, Baltimore, Cincinnati, and other places. The musical circles here deplore very much the loss of Borghese, who had made for herself hosts of friends and admirers during her residence in this city. For a long time she was the main stay of the Italian Opera, till Pico came to her aid. If the company had agreed and remained here they would have another very splendid season, for the musical taste of the city was just awaking when they broke up. A committee of the recent subscribers to the Italian Opera, are deliberating on the erection of a new Opera House, to be located up town, at the corner of Broadway and Houston street, and of such dimensions and architectural beauty, as to make it an ornament to that quarter of the metro polis. This project wonld require a subscription of $100,000 to start with; and we believe that many wealthy individuals have already put their names down for large sums. How th{8 may succeed we know not. In the meantime, it is supposed thai some effort will be made to get up anothe* com pany out of the materials still amongst us, but this is rather doubtful. For some time the city must be satisfied with the shilling theatres, and the negro minstrels, and all their demoralizing spec tacles and disgusting exhibitions. The Park Theatre, indeed, will, in a few days, present one redeeming point, as it is to be opened with Welch and his splendid equestrian performers. No doubt, this exhibition will be patronized by the most re spectable families,with their children, who will be rejoiced to see the horses. It is, indeed, a fact, that, in these degenerate days, the four-footed beasts are much lees beastly than the trash pro duced by the bipeds at the shilling theatres. Scottish Minstklsy.?Mr. Clirehugh's enter tainment comes off this evening at the Society Library, Broadway. Those who are at all desirous ot enjoying some of Burn's best songs and those of his native land will certainly not be absent. Albany. [Correspond- uce of the Herald ] Ai.bany, Jan 24, 18-15. The late Brutnl Murder? Who it to be Judge 7? Legal Tioublet, relative to the Anti-Renters. Dear Sir An error occura in my note of yesterday, into which many persons were innocently led by the fabrications of Madame Rumor. It was stated that a young man, named Goodrich, had been ar rested as the murderer of a young woman in the street night before last. Goodrich, although men tioned in connection with the affair, has not been committed, nor, indeed, is the real perpetrator of the crime as yet discovered, although various ar rests have been made. No Judge vet in place of Judge Kent. This is still an open question, as the Governor has not in timated to any one his deposition in reference to the matter. The applicants are here, in auxious attendance upon the fate of their " papers " Every arrival brings New Yorkers in profusion plenteous. More trouble anticipated in Columbia county. One Dorr, (a son of Dorr senior,) was yesterday precipitated from the place of Supreme Court Com missioner, because he grunted a writ of hab. carp to transport the body of Boughton, or Big Thun der, from the city of Hudson to Hillsdale, in the very heart and centre of the rebellious demon stration. Attorney General Barkerstarted for Hud son by express yesterday, about 11 A. M Just suppose that Boughton had been carried to Hills dale, in obedience to the mandate of Dorrl The consequences thereof no man may imagine. This anti-rent party promises to be very strong and in fluential in various sections of the State where these old feuds have existence. In haste, yours, B. Circuit Court. Before Judge Kent.

The prospective view of the Park Theatre, last evening, was one of the most beautiful that can be imagined. Hundreds of gay banners, with a va riety of device, emblem and motto that wonld puz zle even a herald to understand or remember?the State arms, the city t^rms.the arms of all the States, the banners of the innumerable ward clubs, the torn Hag of the Philadelphia riots, and over all the stars and stripes, floating in graceful folds, were hung from the balconies of the boxes, were wreathed around every column, were swaying in festoons from the lofty ceiling, flashed in the light of the many-colored chandeliers and mingled with the gay colors of the ladies' dresses?while the' sparkling eyes of four or five hundred beautiful Native American women darted a perfect anrmv borralis of brilliancy over the scene. At the further end of the saloon was seen a spacious illumination bearing the words, "Let none but Americans be put on guard to-night"?and at every turn you met some gay emblem to remind you that here, "for this night only," the performers on the "boards'1 of old Drury were of the true Native American cut. The floor, which extended from the boxes to the extreme rear of the theatre, was literally packed with dancers, and the second tier of boxes wat tilled with ladies who did not dance, and with AI dermen, spectators, reporters, and other dignita ries, who shared the inestimable privilege of en joying the beauty and excitement of the festival, without the compensating labor of jumping up and down. The dancers were called to their places and their best bows, by a sonorous Chinese gong, and the commencement of the set was announced !>y. two tremendous thwacks upon " that dreadful bell" which has so often roused the angry Moor from his soft dalliance with the sweet Desdemona, and "frighted the isle from her propriety." Bui " Othello's occupation was gone," and that of the fiddlers had come?and away went the merry re vellers, in time and out of time, "crossing over" when they should " chassez," dancing against time and the grumbling double-baFs, some jumping up while others jumped down, and all bb nappy at lambs frisking about on the spring turf. The lobbies and saloons were set out with tables for refreshment, which we noticed were under pretty constant requisition?an ominous sign,show ing that the " natives" have not loBt their appe tites. although the condition of the streets, one would think admirably calculated to make their do so. After the " Postillion" had got through with cracking his whip, ^here was a little lull, and "tin committee" adjourned with the invited guests to the green-room, where a goodly supply of cold ham, turkey, champagne ana oysters had been pro vided Here a regular scramble for the "spoils" took place; and we will do our friends the justici tosav that they showed themselves expert hands at the business A great many slices of nam and tur key went off iB a most miraculous manner, and an incredible number of "natives," both fried, stewed and in the shell, were furnished with comfortahh places under the new administration. On the whole, the ball was a brilliant one, and owed in chief attractions to the presence of the lovely Na tive American ladies. If they were entrusted with the destinies of the city, we don't know as we should object to a continuance of " na tive" rule. We warrant they would put thingr to rights directly, and brush up all the slovenli ness which tjieir husbands and lovers have per petrated. These natives, it must be confessed get up very pretty processions,meetings and balls but they don't keep the streets clean. They drink excellent champagne and eat unexceptionabh oysters?but they don't clean the streets. The) display a great deal of taste in hanging their ban ners and emblems around the walls of a ball roon ?but they don't clean the Btrests. They danc* well, they waltz well, they understand the myste ries of the Polka, the Mazourka and the Bolero but they won't keep the streets clean : and, unti they condescend to do this, wemu t tell them ver> plainly that their " ball can't go on." Mayor Harper was expected to be on the ground at an early hour, but he had not arrived at mid night, and the ladies had begun to abandon thi hope of seeing him and listening to his irresistibl jokes. There were aldermen, however, in abund ance. Opening of the New Post Office.?Yesterdai the old Dutch Church in Nassau street was throwi open to the public tor inspection, previous-to kt opening tor the business of the Post Office, whicl takes place some time this week. At the entrance at the front, from Cedar street, there is a larg frame with a number of small panes of elans, 01 which are gilt figures ranging from 1 to 3228: thes> are intended for the use of merchants, and are s< formed as to enable every applicant to see at > glance whether there are any letters for them. Ir the centre of thiscase is placed a beautiful twelv months dial The space in front is some 8 or f) feet wide, heated by two large stoves, perfectly warm and comfortable; behind thisscreen or fram are placed large tables for the purpose of sorting, dec. As you enter the interior, by the door oi the left, you come upon a large swing frame ii three departments, containing 144 boxes each, oi 482 in the whole, intended for the reception of lei tern to be called for; there are three of these, on< at each window fronting: Nassau street, two fs>i gentlemen and one tor ladies, and they are s< constructed that the person can turn them roum and get any letter that may be applied for withou removing from the window. On the left, in th> centre, are the offices for the South, East, ami North letter mails; and opposite them, on tht other side, are the offices for the receip* and sorting of newspapers. The latter process is carried on in three circular apartments, eontainini 54 good sized boxes, on which are inscribed the names of the principal places in each district, will a large table in iront for sorting, so that the sorte. can pitch into its respective box each paper as it comes to hand. At the bottom end en the grounc floor, are the offices for the receipt of newspapers together with sinks and other conveniences. It. the front gallery are the public and private office ot the Postmaster, on the right of which is the cash ier's office; on the left ot these, in a line with Nas sau street, the meriting and night clerks and mai carriers' room; on the right, in the opposite gallery are the letter carriers', city despatch carriers', and the transcript office; at the lower end of the gallery ja the chief clerk's office, over the door of whicl is another beautiful 12-months clock, surmountei by a splendid large golden eagle bearing a shield and the motto " E plurxbut wwwm." From tht Postmaster's and chief clerk's room everything going forward throughout the building may b? viewed. There are tour staircases to the gallery, two spiral in the body of the building, and two others from the sorting rooms below. Water it conveyed throughout the building, and hose pipe are placed above and below. Most of the rooms are turnishecl with double folding-doors, fire-prool safes, and the windows with iron shutters.

Annexation o? Texas.?Thi? isle was disturbed from its propriety yesterday about noon by the re port of cannon. "What was the matter!" "What was doingT' "What's up nowl" were the general exclamations that went round in the neighbor hood. Soon Tammany Hall pnd Joe Murphy's bar were crowded with anxious democrats and others all desirous of knowing what was the mean ing oi all this noise and expensionof powder. Bang ?bang! went two five-pounder field pieces in front of the City Hall, disturbing the different members of the law Courts assembled in pursuit of their dif ferent avocations, cutting short the thread of argu ment oi some young aspirants for legal fame Judges, bar, clients and ail, rushed to the win dows to ascertain, if possiole, the cause of the re ports. Even a worshipful gentleman, with gold spectacles on nose, was seen standing at the top ol the tlight of steps leading to the City Courts, with almost hair on end, in all the attitude ot one who was surprised at the presumption of any party daring to disturb him from his contemplations as to how he was to get over the Btrike of the new police against wearing the livery appointed by the coun cil uuder his direction, and was heedless of seve ral gaunt looking individuals near him, who kept continually touching the front af their caps and hats to him. He was heard to exclaim every now and then to one or two others who joined his company. "What|s this! What's it meanl Never asked me-^send lor . They've no business?it's too bad?it's against the laws and regulations?I'llput an end to this and withdrew into the interior of the building. In the meanwhile, bang?bang, went the two held pieces again, quite unmindful of those in authority, while numbers were increasing around them, and the conversation was both spirited and enlivening. " Hurra, Put, what's all this mane 1" said a tall, raw-boned Irishman, in a sort of a kind of a waist coat, minus a coat, with ragged shirt sleeves, and trousers turned up to his knees, to preserve them from mud, and with every appearance of just eina nating from a bed of mortar?"

Btood two individuals, one with his hands driven deep into the pockets of his unmention ables,which were neatlyplaited in front,and str. pped down to the uttermost, with his hat on one side, smiling at his companion, who was exclaiming, " What fools thus to wast their powder! Do they think that because it has passed the House,it willgo through the Senate?no, no, we've Webster there tor that; besides John Tyler never dare sign it if it did pass both houses; it would be the destruc tion of the country and bring upon us an unjust and ruinous war in which our"?"Stop, stop, Joe; don't let's have one of your election haranguet just now, the day has gone by for them and your songs also; reserve them for four years to come, you may then want them.

Do you think I've been to Washington for nothing, or that we floored the old hunkers at Tammany tne other night with out knowing what we were about?no, no; we knows better than that." Bang?bang, again went the guns, and there approached the steps of the City Hall an itinerant vegetable dealer, exclaim ing, "Jo?with the?foreigners; do they think they shall rule usl the natives know a thing worth two of that; and if they get Texas?what then, we shall be able, after we've sent all those back to their own country who arrive here, to drive the rest to Texas; and then they wfll he out of way, we vant none of them here." Bang?bang, again went the guns, and there was one heard exclaim ing, " this is glorying in the nation's shame; th< ruin of our native land?the extension of the vile system of dealing in the blood of our fellow crea ? ures? the promotion ot the interest of the South em States to the sacrifice of the intelligent north, which can only lead to the dissolution of th< (Juion and leave our country a prey to the sordid interest of the powers oi Europe." Bang,- bang, went the guna again, which appeared to cut shon ^ _ ii* wiuvii a|'|'caicu iv tut c the say of the would-be philanthropist. "It is ali Pb fault," exclaimed a mic' " you and your party's fault," exclaimed a middle sized, thin, cadaverous-looking individual, wrap ped in a seedy blue coat, who is always prasent at all occurrences that take place from tne Tombs to the Tabernacle. "If you had gone our ticket, wr wouldn't have had this muss about Texas; but you would go your own hook and you now see whiv you've done.

" What the hell do you mean 1" " Gentlemen, gentlemen, don't make a disturbance; it can do no good." " Come along Joe, its time to be moving." "And you, youd?d whig humbug, if you had gone the native ticket, we would soon have shown them what time of da; it wns." Bang, bang, again went the guns, and seeing that there was something more than nois> and smoke likely to ensue, the eaves-dropper with drew. Ia Chancery. Before Vice Chancellor McCoun. Jam. 37.?Jl Hoax on the Vice Chancellor.?Ml Honor,on taking his teat upon the Bench, lookups letter, which had been addressed to him, without signature, and en closing a newspaper paragraph, which it appeared had been cut out of one of the city papers, impugning Hit Honor's decision in the case of Daniel B. Taylor and wile, respecting the disposition of their two children. The do cision, the paragraph stated, was "worthy of Chin Fun. he first Chinese judge." His Honor the Vice Chancellor asked the Clerk bow it came before the Court ? Clibs?I cant say, your Honor. The mysterious communication was then laid on the desk, when the following decisions were given Joseph T. Mills, Executor of William Fogel vs. Susan Fogel.?Decision.?It appeared that in the year 1M41, W il liam Fogel, who had been then domiciled at Bridgeport. Connecticut, died having made a will, by which he left to his wife, the defendant, one-third of his real estate during her life time. The remainder oi his real and personal es tate he left to his children by a former wife. Sub sequent to the making of the will it appeared a child was horn to the testator by the defendant, foi whom no provishn was made in the will; consequently she contends that the estate ought to be divided accord ing to the laws of Connecticut in a case of an intestate, the testator having died in that State. His Honor held that the testator being domiciled in Connecticut at the time of making bis will, and al>o at his decease, the law of that State should govern all questions that may arise in relation to the matters at issue between the parties, in so far as the will had reference to the personal estate of testator, and so far as the personal preperty of testator was concerned, wheresoever situated. Moveable proper ty was attached to and followed the person of the owner : its distribution by will, in case of intestacy, was to be go verned exclusively by the law of his actual domicile a< the time of his death, without regard to the place or sitet of the property itself. This was a well established rulr of common law in England, and in this country? With respect to real estate, a different principle prevailed. In case of intestacy the descent and heir ship of the real estate was exclusively governed by th? lews of the State or country within which it was situa ted. If there be a will, the capacity of the testator, th< extant of his power to dispose of the property, and the forms and solemnities to give the will its due attestation and effect, are to be determined vet sito. From the fact* stated in the bill and answer in the present cause, it was obvious that it was the dutv of the executors, in the firs: instance, (unless they had chosen to renounce) to have gone with the will, for probate, beforr the proper officer at Connecticut, and there ask for testa mentary letters upon it, as a will of personal eiUte. If they succeeded in getting it admitted to probate, and get ting the letters testamentary there, they should then, ami not till then, have come to the surrogate of New Vork for letters founded on the probate of Connecticut. If the) had taken this course, there would have been no necessi ty lor their asking the aid and direction of the Court of Chancery, as complainant now does. The surrogate at Connecticut would have determined the question whe ther the will was good in relation to the " personality t" or whether the subsequent birth of a chil i, unprovided for, should operate us a revocation. The widow had a p? feet right to have that question determined in Connrc ticut, where the husband had lived and died ; and Ifthe exocutor did not produce the will there for probate, so as to give an opportunity of .meeting it, she could apply for Utters of administration ; and having obtained them, shr would be entitled to take out letters ot administration here, se as to entitle her to posaess herself of the person al eatate within this jurisdiction in relation to the real estate in New York, thn will was probably a good one to press the title according to the laws ot this State ; and as such it may be proved and recorded, if It had not already been done; but the executors had no interest in the real estate and no concern with It, except as mere donees of a naked power of saU; and that, too, upon condition that the widow shall concur and release her dower. There was no devise ol the real oatate to the ex ecntors in trust, and no trust was created except to in vest the proceed* after the sale. In relation to the real es tate its income or it* proceeds, there appeared to ho not the least occasional present for asking the aid or dlr>c. tion of the court; and with regard to the personal estate, them was no propriety ia the complainant's coming into Court. Ordered,therefore,that bill bo dismissed with costs to be paid ie honet propria?

Adopted. Veto of Hie Honor the May or?The following message was received from the Mayor in relation to the report of the Committee on Arts ana Sciences, granting the build ing now occupied as the Post Ofllce to the New York Gallery of Fine Arts. Mayor's Orrica, January 30, lf46. To the Hon. Board or Aldermen With much regret, and after careful deliberation, ac companied by an earnest desire to add my official sanc tion to the measure, 1 And myself compelled to return to your Honorable Board, without my signature, the resolu tion granting a lease of the Rotunda, (or building now occupied as the Post Office,) to the " New-Yoik Gallery of the Fine Arts," at the nominal rent of one dollar per annum. I appreciate, as highly as the Committee of your Ho norable Board, by whicu the resolution was reported, the claims of the institution on the public regard and coun tenance ; and the long list of petitioners for the lease, iucluding,as it does, the names of our most estimable and distinguished citizens, adds a powerful motive to those already existing in my own mind, for wishing that I could sanction the resolution, consistently with my svnsu of duty. But I cann?t see that the City Government has the right to muke such disposition ol a valuable property. The vast and increasing expenses which the citizens have to meet, admonish us that we should not onlv practice a rigid econ omy in expenditures, but also put to the most profitable use all the city's property and means of revenue. I was chosen to office under this profession and pledge, and I feel myself bound to act up to the profession and redeem the pledge. Already there is a want of office accommodation far of ficers connected with the city government, and the want is likely to increase. The Rotunda, occupying a most suitable and convenient position, might be fitted up, at no great expense, so as to furnish several offices which we arc now obliged to hire: and if such use of it should not be deemed expedient, there is no doubt that it could be let, at an annual rent, of from three to four thousand dol lars, which we should be careful not to lose from tho pub lic treasury. ? The resolution proposes no term for the duration of the lease. If it is intended to grant the building for only one year, tho institution might be subj - cted to tne serious i? convenience of having to remove at the endj ' If a perpetual lease is contemplated, 1 cor propriety of thus binding the city governnt come after us, appears to me extremely qud Whether a greater number of our oitizen benefitted by a location farther up in the < proposed, is a question for others to decid already said, my feelings toward the New 1L the Fine Arts (of which 1 am a member) arej and of my own property I would cheerfully! institution so laudable, and promising such citizens; but in dealing with the property t, think it is our duty to be careful and econl nerous, especially at this time, when the are?o large, the taxes so heavy, and the | duction so remote in consequence of the lavs with which we nre threatened for schools and of the Alms House establish that are continually increajing with no a] of prevention With these views,! think it my duty to lution without my signature; and I do it w nution of reluctance because I know tha are wrong, the Common Council still power to consummate the measure J AMI Alderman Dickinson was astonished, and the Mayor's views?if the cityofficers wanted office's,'to I the corporation take the old Alms House; there was plen ty of room there to make a* many offices as tbev wanted. He hoped the board would not take the Mayor's message into consideration at all. (He appeared to think that the message was a " mare's nest") Aid. Drake moved to refer the matter to the Committee on Finance Aid. Cozzens moved to pass the reDort and resolutions of the committee, notwithatandii g the objections of his honor the Msyor. Aid.

Adopted. The Thirty Minute Rule?A Row?Etc ape of Sol Pick? cri.?The Committee on Police, Watch and Prisons, to whom was referred the presentment of the grand jury in relation to the above subject, reported that the escape did not occur from any ''negligence or design on the part of the head or deputy keepers of the city prison," but, to use the words of a lawyer who was present at the time of the escape, and was examined as one of the witnesses, it waa an honest omission?such as any one might make. Aid. Hasbrouck presented a minority report, which concurred with the expression of the Grand Jury, that gross negligence, if not criminal neglect, had been mani fested on the part of the keeper of the city prison; and the report recommended the dismissal of deputy keepers Johusjn. Kennedy and Lounsbury, and Van Duzen, then the gate keeper, and now a night watch. Aid. Buntino moved that both reports be accepted, but the resolution accompanying them rejected. Aid. Gale, of the majority, opposed this motion, and discussed the nature of the change. He pronounced it as having been got up for political purposes, and said that the matter was mere wind. Aid. Hasbrouck replied within time, and wda very se. vere in alluding to the remark of Aid Gale. He asked if such men as Henry Erben, the foreman Ml the Grand Jury, and John H. Williams, the Secretary, were to be accused of making a presentment from improper motives, and with nothing in it hut wind 7 Aid.

Alderfaan Burtino (afterthe expiration of ten minutes). ? Isn't the time up, Mr. President? Alderman H.?Not quite, sir Alderman Dickinson.?It 'a the longest thirty minutes I ever knew. (Laughter) At the expiration of time, the Alderman sat down ' Alderman Miller, who presided nt Terhune's trial and heard all the testimony in the case, expressed it as hit opinion that the escapi was a chance escape, and cou < he attributed in part to the fact of two parties being afo-j Vick-rs and, in a great measure, to the presencl of Thomas JeiTiirson Smith, of the Maiine Court,^ who wai present with a r< ouiaition far Vickurs, although ne did not connive at the escape. Alderman Hasbrouck then rose, when a general clear ing out of members took place The Alderman then dis cussed the subject at length, and quoted from a paper, which he averred waa a copy of the minutea taken before th>* committee ; be cited a portion of the testimony of the lawyai quoted by the majority, and contended that it had reference to another branch of the subject. Aldermau Gale denied the accuracy of Alderman H '? minute*, and repeatedly said, " Not so, sir-not so, sir" Aid. Hasriiouck.?I appeal to the chair to call the Rentleman to order.
