Meeting of the Empire Club Lest Evening Strong Resolutions?Principles, not Party ?Down with the Native American Party at All Hazards The Empire Club met in coasiderable numbers last evenirgin the St. John's Hall, Franklortstreet. Shortly alter the hour appointed, the President of the Club, Capt. Isaiah Rynders, took the chair, sup ported by all the other officers of the association. After the call of the meeting had been read, and a" few other preliminary step' had been entered into, on the motion of Mr. Woolridge, a committee of tive was appointed to draft resolutions, consisting of Messrs. Reese, Beckett, Ford, MiDor, and Con nor. In the interim the Chairman called the attention of the members of the Club to their duty as true democrats in the approaching contest, and said that much was expected from them and much must be done,?they must not relax their endeavors in the least; they had a wily enemy to contend against, and they must be prepared accordingly. The committee then returned, and the resolu tions prepared were read to the meeting by Mr. Reese, wnichwere the strongest in temperament we ever recollect hearing. They termed the present party in power in the city government, as a piebald one, neither fit for good or evil; that they obtained power under false pretences, and that they must be hurled from the power they had thus obtained, and that the Empire Club was determined to do it.? This was instanced by th?ir proceedings during their reign, and said they were only fit to compete with the apple stalls of poor old women,and a few of minor grog shops, while the proud and rich were allowed to go on in their unlawful proceedings with impunity. Of the question of the annexation of Texas, they repudiated the tardy proceedings of Congress as being adverse to the strongly ex pressed opinion of the country at the recent elec tion, and stated that the democrats of this country would not rest satisfied with any thing leas than the annexation both of Texas and Oregon. The Club pledged themselves not to lend their powers to any party, but to carry out the true principles upon which it was based. The resolutions having been put, were carried unanimously amid long cheering. The Chairman then proceeded to address the meeting at some length on the resolutions, and went into a mass of detail, of a somewhat inte resting character, showing the workings of the old hunkers of the democratic party; how they sur rounded the Governor of the Stnte, and prevented him irom exercising his own free, and intelligent, unbiassed judgment, saying that there were one hundred liars, better than the chairman?who exer cised their avocations to such an extent,tnat he was obliged to withdraw his application for office He then proceeded to take a review of the conductor the Native American party in this city, since their accession to power, in no measured terms, expo sing them most fully, but not beyond their merits fn conclusion, he called upon all members of the club to be up and stirring in their respective wards, and nnnounceJ that one or two ether meetings of the Club would be held previous to the election in April, when more particulars would be given as to the line of procedure. Mr. Woolridos moved that Messrs. Sbaler and Hopkins, who were then on the premises, be in vited to address the meeting. A deputation of three having been appointed for this purpose, with drew. The Chairman said he thanked God that they had in this city at least one paper which was inde pendent of party or diguti, whose columns were ever open to truth and justice; and, although it had given the Empire Club some hard wipes, it was only when they deserved it; and hoped it would persevere in the same course?he alluded to the Hew York Herald. [Three cheers were then given, most heartily, for that paper, and three others for its independent editor, James Gordon Bennett.] The party voted to invite Messrs. Hopkins and Shaler to address the meeting then entered the room, accompanied by the former gentleman, who was received amid much cheering. Mr. Hofkins made a brief address, in which he said he would go with the club heart in hand, and as the Native American party had found them in ferries from one end of Broaaway to the other, he would, at the next municipal election, UBe all his 1 powers to get a party into office that would supply his fellow citizens with boats to carry them across those ferries. (Cheers ) Three cheers were then given for Polk and Dal las, three others for Texas and Oregon, three more for Silas Wright, three others for the Chairman, and three extra lor their anticipated success in the spring election, which might have been heard dis tinctly the other side of the Park, and then the meeting broke up. Meeting of the national Reformers at Crotoa Hall. A meeting of the National Reform Associa tion was held last night at Croton Hall, which was tolerably well attended. The principal fea ture of the evening wasthe address of Mr. A Bris bane, who introduced his remarks by stating that he did not belong to the N. R. Association, but felt a great sympathy tor it, as he saw in it a sin cere desire for the elevation of the laboring classes, and a wisdom manifested in that desire?for they hid a great and important measure in view. He himself had been for a number of years engaged in another cause?a reform whose accomplishment was far off, which was not to arrive to morrow or the next day, or the next year, or the year after? but it trould come, and when it came, it would be the grand and final reform of society, and would put an end forever to poverty and ignorance, the parents of want and crime, throughout the world The points to which he would direct attention on the present occasion were, 1st?the slavery of the working classes, in its different forms, throughout all past ages; 2d?the importance of the laboring or producing classes; 3d?the rights of man, em bracing those which have been taken from and those conceded to him; 4th?the policy which the National Reformers should pursue to accomplish their objects. The history ot the past showed us that there had been in existence three kinds of slavery?the slavery of man by man, serfdom, (ot man belonging to the soil,) and the slavery of hired labor, or the slavery to capital. This is the form of slavery at present most generally in existence, and is the result of the ac cumulation of capital in the hands of a few, the introduction of free competition, by which the price of labor is reduced through the necessities of of the laborer, and the invention of labor-saving m hinery. The laboring classes are the producers or ill wealth, and the products of their labor are taken from them by accumulated capital, by finan cial organizations, by commerce, end by their for ced competition against each other. Labor is the poor man's only property ; but while the laws have fenced in the right of all other kinds of property? the sacredness of ownership in real estate, in chat tels and all kinds of goods?the property of the poor man?his labor?is mercilessly taken irom him by every species of fraudulent contrivance, and yet the laws have no pity, no security for him. Civi lizatiou does not actually guarantee to the laboring man so many of his rights as are secured in savage lite. The Iodian has the right of gaihering the Iruits of the field,of fishing, of hunting, and of pas turnge?and these four rights are equivalent to the right to the soil and the right of labor?which the poor man, in civilization, noes not possess Some rights have been extended to the people, but they are, with one exception, either illusory or nega tive. The only practical, real right they have, is the right of suffrage; and with the exercise of this, intelligently directed, they have it in theirpowerto secure all the others. The great problem of the ?ge is the elevation of the masses, and this can only be done by an enthusiastic, a devoted union, on broad and fundamental principles, of the laboring classes. The present tendency of things is towards a commercial and industrial feudalism, more fa tal than the feudalism of ihe middle ages. Al ready, manufactures had been brought under this system, and in a few years agriculture would be in the same situation. In the coun ty of Genesee, in this State, Mr. B. knew the fact that one half the land in the whole county was under mortgage to banks and insurance com oaniea. So it was, more or less, throughout the country, and so it would go ou, until a few capi talists owned all the land, and they could suy to the tillers of the soil, as they already did say to the manufacturers and artizans?"this is all ours?go 10 work for u miserable pittance, or starve." The treat object, then, was to arrest this tenden cy; and the movement of the National Reformers was the commencement of it. Let them insist on the right to the soil and the right ot education?le> hem avoid involving themselves in the petty and fragmentary reforms of the day, which amount tr tothtng, and can effect nothing, and m irch on un Jer the broad and fundamental principles ol right to the soil and right of education, and they must ?uooeed. Several short speeohoe wers made, and the meet* ing adjourned Mexico. [Correspondence of the Herald ] L/aoi'na de Tkrminos, J ait 15,1845. Characterietic of the Mexican People?The Shipping in the Gulf? IVho owni it ? J. G. Bennett, Esq-:? Dear Sir I wrote you a short letter a few days ago, giving you a general view ol this place?its present situa tion and future prospects Since my last,the steam boat Guadeloupe, from Vera Cruz, has been here, but brought no later news from Santa Anna. His situation is still equivocal, however. I should not be surprised if he yet gained the ascendancy, as his genius has often triumphed under circumstances more desponding than the present. The officers of the government, Custom House, 5cc., wait with anxiety for some definite arraugernent, as they are the persons principally interested in these revolu tions, but the people generally, except the poor In dian soldiers, shout tor the successful general, and regard ail principles with equal indifference. In deed thay know not whether any principle is in volved, and they are not ceusurable for this; as it would puzzle the most intelligent to find it About four or five months ago, an American schooner, from New Orleans, was illegally sold heie, there being no accredited consul here; and the house that bought it?indeed, that planned the whole transaction?and procured fraudulent papers, and resolved to send her to New Orleans on a voy age, but on the arrival of the new consul here she could not procure despatches, consequently she has been sent to Campeachy, as the head of the house in question observed that the consul there did uot know the laws of the United Siates. How eve^ I think she will not be despatched there, as a Mexican register caunot be legally obtained lor her. Indeed, I think it high time that a stop be put to such nefarious transactions ; our flag is de secrated daily in Mexico by false ownersnip and perjured papers, and I hope the United States, through her consuls and other agents, will endea vor to put a stop to it. I have been more or less in this country tor five or Bix years, and I can safely say that two-thirds of the schooners trading in the Gulf, and to the Havana, owned by Mexican mer chants, are under the American flag; and to show you that I speak advisedly, I will mention one case connected with myself. Having occasion, some time since, to go to Merida, to adjust some busi ness with a merchant with whom I was particular I ly acquainted, he for the first time informed me that he had a vessel in my name, and requested of tne a power of attorney to sell her After a severe reprimand, and much persuasion, I consented ; but told him never to use my name for so false a pur pose again, as, if the vessel had happened to turn pirate, I should have been known as the owner, and not he. This is an isolated case among an hun dred. However, I will write you more extensively on this subject another time. The British brig Glengarifl, of Cork, 206 tons burthen, Captain Church, from Vera Cruz to La guna, was lost in a gale off Gassqualqua, on 15th November last. The captain, second mate, and five sailors, were lost; the first matr, carpenter, and three of the hands, are saved, and are now in Laguna. In the meantime, I remain yours,&c., Viator. Albasy, | Correspondence of the New York Herald. 1 Albany, Feb. 17, 1845. Theywesfto vexata, the Judgeship First Circuit, which has been a source of great disquiet and dis comfort to many worthy and highminded gentle men, and perhaps not a little to the equable and good natured Governor, was this morning settled. The name of John W. Edmonds was sent to the Senate for that place, valued at seven to ten thou sand dollars per annum, and tenable until three score years of age. In this struggle, the world has been apparently " down on" Mr. Edmonds. The history of his lite, public and private, has been over run?all sorts and descriptions of charges bave been made against him?every manner of influence has been brought to bear against him,?but it seems he has cleared the track of all encumbrances, and des pite every obstacle in his way, he has succeded to nts heart's content. I knew it would be highly pleasing to Governor Wright if the law would rid him of his Executive patronage. He don't like it. Hut since the work is to be done, he bears it good aaturedly, and one by one he is clearing the calen dar of appointments. Gen. Cass was in the capitol during the morning hour, and received the cordial graspof many hands, aut the owners of said hands arc of opiuon that his seat in the U. S. Senate, wipes his name from the slate for the succession. He is thought to have reached the acme of his political destiny. Upon this point however, there is no occasion for any present expression of opinion. The Canal Board yet remains in daily session, and, of course, to use a common expression, "the turll es" in various parts of the State. It's a nice business abstractly considered, this hanging on prince's favor. A comfortable blacksmith at his ?orge, is a king compared with the poor devils who dance attendance in Albany. In Washington it is the same?only worse and more of it. Every body here is anxiously looking towards rkr federal capitol for some authentic information about the cabinets, and the general course of af fairs. Yeu promised to give it. Lyman. Boston. (Coretpondence of the Herald.] Boston, Feb. 17, 1845. J. G. Bennett, Esq. : The political tide still runs high in this mayor less city. Next Friday, the 21st inst., we shall have the eighth trial to elect this city official, but according to present prospects it will be as una vailing as the former ones. Each party remains firm and determined to fight to the last gasp. The natives will finally succeed. Office seekers are on the qui vivt just now, and their number, in this neighborhood, is legion.? Some have very just and fair claims upon the new administration, if political services count anything; others, and by far the larger class, seem to think, because they have voted for Polk and Dallas, and, perhaps, carried a torch in some procession, that they too must be rewarded. There will be seme kicking here when the disposition of offices is made, ana matters settled. The democrats are preparing for a grand ball in Paneuil Hall, to come off on the 4th of March, in celebration ot the democratic national triumph. It is got up on a very liberal scale, and will doubtless be a very fine affair. The natives will use the hall a few days previous for the purpose ot celebrating Washington's birth-day, and I am informed that Mr Harper, mayor of your city, has engaged io be present. This will rather excel the democraiic entertainment. We have a wholesome variety in the way of en tertainments in our city at this time. Among others there are the lecures of I)r J. 8. Jones, for merly manager of the Tremont Theatre, upon the Reproductive St stem, use and abuse ! These lec tures are given in one of our public halls, and draw well, to say the least of thr m But as to the moral influence of "preaching" upon this topic, und ex hibiting perfect and accurate models thereof, why, I am inclined to question its propriety. Professor Gourau l has srrivpd in rur city, and proposes to form a class a In New York. Our citi zens are inclined to look upon the mailer rather in the light of an " abstract idea," as Mr. Hudson, ?he lecturer, would say ; and also to que-non its utility. 1 have seen many persons who have de voted time and money to the acquirement of the art of Mnemotechnv, but never one who had re ceived one particle of practical benefit from it in any shape or manner. [Did the professor mnemo. nize his accounts with the printers in your city be fore leaving I] Mr Rice, the original and unrivalled Jim Crow, has been performing his round of characters and lurlesques at the National Theatre for some days (>ast. His Bone Squash, Virginia Mummy, Otello, ,Vc .are very humorous in their way, and draw jood houses. Mr. Pelby has a star of greater or esser magnitude constantly before the public; be. ?ides which, there is a most unexceptionable slock jompany attached to the establishment.

Case of Samuel Jldums retuuitd- fourth Day. ?The trial ol this cause was resumed upon the opening of tho Court, Mr. Sage being upon the stuud. A great number ot lefteis, dating from the 18th of March, lt?43, to the 10th of July, 1H44, wiitten by the firm of Suytium, Sage tk.Ce. to Samuel Adams?the majority of them con oiu led in tho most iriendly terms and expressing confi dence in him?all ol them dated prior to December being in relati n to the flour transactions with him?and ail af ter that date in relation to the pork transaction?were in troduced in evidence, by the deb nee, and read to the jury. Among tho letters, was a letter ot credit, directing him to draw upon a certain house in Cleveland, Ohio, lor any atno nt upon dratts am- receipt. Tne letter of the 10th of July notified Adams thBt they bad paid a certain amount of his drafts, and that unless the deficit on ad vances was immediately made up, they should sell the residue of his properly then in their possession; also, that it had been received in bad order. (Accounts current and accounts of sales of flour received from Wesson Ik Co. were introduced, showing that, in that transaction, taere was a balance of 2000 and odd dollars in Itivor ot Wesson Sl Co., which was transferred to the individual ci edit ol Wesson by his order. Question.?In the winter of '43or spring of 1844, did you not receive a consignment of pork from S. S. Seymour k Co. ? (Objected to?objection sreued and overruled ) Answer.?We did, about 1000 barrels ot pork, and have refused to pay the balance, over the amounts of our ac ceptances, which was ab jut $2000 due them. They have commenced sui's against us tor that amount. We have also commenced, or ordered our counsel in Chilicothe to commence, suits against both Seymour and Watts for the deficit i f propeitv, amounting to sixty-three thousand and odd dollars worth, receipts in deposit for which were for warded to us. In August we sold about $32,.">60 worth ot mess and prime pork to Mr. Dougherty, although he did net wish to buy it, with the understanding that we should buy it back again. He bought it, and paid lor it in a check upon the bank. We bought it back with the exception of a few barrels, by wnv of balancing our ac counts, as we expected to try Mr. Adams in July or August, and wished to be able to state the exact defi ciency. The witness then testified that they had made eonti acts to deliver pork at a future day?selling pork, that they had not on hand; and that, in consequence of j Adams not forwarding his produce, agreeable to the re veipts, they wero compelled to buy aud borrow pork to fulfill their contracts, and thus became losers of about $3500; Wesson & Co. being losers in about the same amount. After it was found thut there was a deficit in the pork, we paid our accept d drafts, because we were bound to do so, or our names would have been dishonor ed, and our acceptances protested. Our firm did bring this indictment into Court; we did employ agents to go to Ohio, and take Mr. Adams from Ohio, and bring nim liere; we employed an oiticer, und our attorney, Mr. Oreig, we.it with him. We have employed three counsel to assist the District Attorney. Ques ? Did you not direct your attorney to compro mise and settle the matter, If possible I Question objected to; but urged by way of showing that the witness was an interested one, and had urged on thecaselor private views, and to attain his own ends.

Direct?Some unimportant testimony as to the promul gating their blank receipts, was all that was elicited Frederick Suydam, Jr. called and sworn?I am one of die firm of Suydam, Sage Sc Co; I know the defendant, having ssen him for the first time, in March lust; saw him here and afterwards tollowed him to Philadelphia on a Sunday morniDg, and saw him at Jo et' Hotel, in Chestnut street; he complained of my lollowing him, and endeavoring to make the matter public, and preju dice him with his friends at home; he told me that he had about five or six thousand barrels of pork nt Circle vilp, Ohio, at the house of Martin St Ce , or Martin, Rug glen St Co., aud about one thousand bnrrefs depositee wi h 'he firm ot Adams St Richards. As I feared the domestic creditors mi^ht attach it, I asked him lor an order for it ihat we might hol-l it; he told me that lie had assigned it to R R Seymour St Co for the purpose ef protecting them igsinst the receipts,and therefor could net give me an or der on Martin; no, however, gave me ou ordrr on Sey nourStCo (order shown); tins la the order,and the bod) vaa drawn by mc (it was un order for the pork); he said 'hat he had t >k< u advice of Mr. Binary, aud that I could not arrest him; Mr. Adams also gave a certificate ?.hat he had assigned all the po-lt in Martin St Go's hands, belonging to him, to K R Seymour St Co; I afterwards returned to New York und then wont to Ohio; I demanded the propetty ot Mr Seymour; but I did not get ony I did not present nnv of the papers ohim.

I asked him what pos sessed him to sign the receipts if he had not the pr. petty, and besides, because be had every confidence in Mi. Vdams. I asked him if he knew what Mr Adams wrs going to do with the re -eipts at the time he made them, and he said thai he knew Mr. Adums was going to raise money on them at the east. He asked me how many) had oi his, and I informed liirn He said that he would see, or expected to see him. I got no properly of any kind from him. Cross-examined.?1 made this journey in the latter part ?f April or May. My conversations occurred at the blacksmith's shop and at his own house. I found that he bad a fine farm, net quite so fine as Mr. Watts'. 1 found .hat he had a considerable stock of cattle, although not the est I ever *a v. it was some consolation to me, to bb e I think that he found lault with the property passed to the receipts of Watts, and alleged that as a reason for not paying receipts ormaking up a deficit. On the way back, was introduced to a man named Perrel, with whom I had a conversation, w th rcspectto the wea'th and re tpoiiaihility of Seymonr.

He was following htm as I understood to get personal satisfaction Mr. Adams had ] believe been mar rial just before he can c here, andgthat wrs his bride: excursion. I think that Mr. Seymour told me that the receipts were most of them signed when in blank without the filling up. Some other testimony was given, but ol no very great Interest.

While Mr. Bull was at tea last evening, Potter sent word by the Assistant Jailor that he wished to see him. Mr. Bail immediately went to Potter's ceil, who told him that he was in great distress of mind. Mr B asked him il any thing new had occurred Potter said no, but that hia agony of mind was such that ho could neither eat, dunk or sleep?that he could get no rest of any kind, and that he had deteimined finally to tell the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, let the consequence be what it would.

He said he could no longer be guilty of accusing inno cent blood, and 'hat hisfoimer statements, so far as others were implicated, were all false. Ho then requested that 'he Grand Juror and Mr. Foster should be called in, that lie might make the statt ment to them personally. His request was complied with, und they soon came to bis c<u.
