Price 64 cents. Public Meeting of th? Democracy In tlie Park. A call, very numerously signed, has been made lor a public meeting of the democracy, in the Park this afternoon, at 5 o'clock, to declare their opin ions on the last annexation resolutions passed by the House of Representatives, now debated by the Senate. This is the meeting which was postponed 111 consequence of the recent snow storm. It wil| probably be a very large meeting, as, we believe,a considerable degree of eflorl has been made to briug as many together as possible. The purposes of this meeting, as avowed by the signers of the call, have relerence merely to the question of the annexation of Texas; but we do not see why a public meeting of any portion of the l>eoplc,assembled to declare their opinion in the ac tion of their legislators, should be restricted to one particular question, which affects chiefly o^y one section of the country. The annexation of Texas is undoubtedly an important question, but is not the reduction of the present rates ot postage and the passage of tne bill before the House of Repre sentatives, at least equally interesting to the great mass of the people 1 Probably the postage bill is more important to the present generation than that of the annexation of Texas; and we think, that if this meeting should overlook the importance of the postage question, they would be neglecting one of the most important duties now devolving upon the people in their primary assemblies. Let them do what is proper in relation to the Texas question. Let them declare what their purpose was in elect ing Mr. Polk. This is all very proper, but we do beg and entreat of them not to overlook the neces sity of the immediate taking up of the subject of Post office reform in the House of Representatives, so that this all important and beneficent measure may be passed upon at once. And it they were to express their opinion on the Oregon and other mat ters, there would be no harm in it. We trust, therefore, that the meeting to be held this afternoon will not pass over without a decla ration of opinion on questions of equal importance to the annexatfbn of Texas, which now demand the consideration of the House of Representatives We shall endeavor to give a full report of the proceedings to-morrow. Thk Streets.?Tlie streets were never in such an awful condition as at present. It the weather during the ensuing few weeks should be warm, we are very much afraid ot some epidemic from the noxious exhalations arising from the filthy streets. In the old cities of Europe, priest-ridden, king ridden, and noble-ridden, as they are, as soon as the enow tails, the municipal authorities clear away the incumbrance, and when spring ap~ proaches, they have at once clean streets. In the city of New York, situated between two rivers, with another great river running through in all directions?the Croton?possessing advantages, in in point of locality and means of cleanliness, far beyond those of any other city in the habitable globe, it is yet one of the dirtiest places?one of the filthiest abodes of civilized man on the face of the earth. Yet all this disgrace, and dirt, and degradation must be excused, because our muni cipal authoiities ere decidedly in favor of temper ance, water drinking, and carrying the Bible through the s'reets at election times ! A more worthless, weak, inefficient, and ridiculous party never came into power in this city than the " na tives," from Mayor Harper down to the lowest scavenger amongst them. Fighting for the Sfoils.?The philosophers of the Morning Newt cannst breathe for two days in succession, without uttering something very severe and savage against the Custom House. The cause of these frequent ebullitions is easily stated. The worthy patriots and pure-minded democrats who started the Newt?who fed it?who scraped its chin, and dressed it in the garb ot a christian?are very hungry, aud want to fill their bellies with the husks of the Custom House. Hence, when they see another set ot men, just as good as they are, living cotnfortably|within the regions ot these flesh-pots, it makes them prodigiously savage. It is notstrange? perhaps, however, it is not strange?that one dog should growl when he sees another dog gnawing a bone I Mr. Polk will please to read this paragraph and note its meaning. Light the Lamps!?The whigs are lighting their lamps and burnishing up their gas lights in all directions. They ate determined not to be destroyed or decomposed either by the "natives' or the abolitionists. Luther Bradish, one of the most influential leaders of the whigs of this State, and now resident in this city, has written a very admirable letter to the "Young Men's Committee,' in which he renews his allegiance to ancient whig principles, and alludes to certain new views forced upon them by the. Abolitionists and "na tives." Luther Bradish is a very excellent and worthy man, and we don't see why he should not be the whig candidate tor the Mayoralty at the en suing election. Put him up, or rather set him up! who dare knock him down 1 Removal op the Capital from Albany- ? Every tws or three years the measles break out, and affiict children to a very melancholy extent. So it is with the removnl of the capital of this State from Albany. Every two or three years the political measles break out in Syracuse, and the surrouuding country, probably, in consequence of the state of the atmosphere, and the quantity of snow which may have fallen. The disease of re moval is raging considerably at present; but, with the help of a pill or two, it won't last longer than three or tour weeks at the farthest. Libs op thk Day.?The Albany Evening Journal ?one of the organs of the Father of Lies on earth -states that Mr. Polk travelled between Cinct natli and Wheeling on the Sabbath day. This is au unmitigated falsehood. Mr. Polk arrived at Wheeling on Satnrday night, and remained there until Monday morning. This falsehood, however, is oaly in character with the Albany Evening Journal, which, 111 point ot defamation, falsehood, atrocity and folly, is not exceeded by any party print of the country. Abolition in Kentucky.?The Rev. Mr. Fair banks?as he is called?has been convicted on his o wii confession,of attempt ing to con veyslaves out of Kentucky, and sentenced to fifteen years imprison ment in the penitentiary. Fairbanks, on his con viction, avowed himself an abolitionist. Cassius M. Clay, of the same State, by his published let ters and documents, has probably given a greater impulse to the movement for the abolition ot sla very in (hat State than sny other individual, and we suppose they intend to make him the candidate tor the next Presidency. Such is the differeace v iween the same thing m practice and profession! British Jntkiuuks in Texas?The authenticity | of the information which we puBTiahed a couple of day* since, disclosing certain private negotiations which have been discovered between Santa Anna and the British government, relative to the acqui sition of the California* by the latter power, has been denied by several of our contemporaries, and particularly by the philosophers who do the hum bug of the Commercial Advertiter and of the Morn? ing Newt The denial of the former is rather de cent, but that ol the latter philosopher?him of the Newt - was coupled with mean and contemptible personalities applied to our correspondent which no gentleman would or could think of uttering. In reply to all these envious, snarling, imbecile chaps, we have merely to say that the information which we published was perfectly authentic as coming Irom the Department ol State. In addi tion to the information received direct from Washington, we have corroborating evidence of its accuracy from another source A few days ago the barque "Ann Louisa" arrived at this port from Vera Cruz, consigned to the highly respectable commercial house of Hargouste Co. We are in formed that previous to the sailing of this vessel a British steamer arrived at Vera Cruz, before the capture of Santa Anna, bringing despatches tor him from the British government. The new govern ment opposed to Santa Anna, having possession ol Vera Cruz, took possession also of the despatches, on which it was at once discovered that secret ne gotiations had been going on between Santa Anna and the British Minister for the giving up ol California to the British government. This intel ligence was well known in Vera Cruz, and reached the eursof the master of the barque" Ann Louma," who was not, however, fully aware of its import ance, and did not report it on hia arrival here. Bat the intelligence has been in possession of the De partment of State at Washington for some time. This is not all. In a very brief space of time the whole of these facts will be disclosed to the public in an official shape, and a tissue ol intrigue be re vealed to the world, in connection with the British government and Santa Anna, that will create great er astonishment than any thing yet that we have seen on this subject. Certain movements are now in a train, set on loot by the State Department at Washington as now organized, which will lead to most important events hereafter, provided Mr Polk makes a due selection ol his cabinet min isters. We believe, indeed, that we are now in a most important crisis connected with the destiny of re publican government, and the independence of the United States on this continent. There is every reason to believe that the powers of Europe have been weaving a web of subtle policy, for the pur pose of arresting the progress of this country, and of encompassing it with governments under their control, for the ultimate end of putting down all popular government on this side of the Atlantic, fer fear of its cieating a revolution on the other side. A brief space of time will reveal wondera on these matteife. A Candidate for the State Prison.?We un derstand that a fellow, who answers the descrip tion of the one who pigeoned the Tribune with the Oxford's news, attempted yesterday to defraud R. Kermit, Esq., the agent of the missing packet United States, and to trifle in the most reprehensi ble manner with the feelings of those who have friends on board of that ship. This fellow went to Mr. Kermit in great haste, and told him that a Swedish ship from Fayal was below, with letters from Captain Britton, and he could get them for a consideration. He was promised twenty or thirty dollars, and soon after again made his ap pearance with letters purporting to be from Captain B., stating that the United States had put into Fayal in distress. It is almost unnecessary to say that the whole story was a fabrication. We re gret that Mr. Kermit did not have the rascal ar rested. Movements or tite Foueikritis.?We under stand that the " Brook Farm" Phalanx, near Bos ton, is in quite a prosperous condition, and is ma king arrangements to carry oat Brisbane's peculiar notions of the platonic harmony of the universe, on an extensive scale. They have sent (or a type setting machine (as an illustration of the " Dignity of Labor," we suppose,) from London, which is to set up type for eight cents a thousand?and a large and well-known publishing and book-binding esta blishment in Philadelphia, with a branch in Pitts burgh, is to be transferred to the Brook Farm con cern. "The Phalanx," the Fourierite organ in this city, is then to be published there, and in Bos ton and here, simultaneously. Green Room Intelligence.?Madame Pico, Sanquurico, and others, go to Washington for the purpose of giving one or two concerts during the Inauguration ftte. Antognini starts to-morrow morning, and Madame Pico and the others on Tuesday. We see by the New Orleans papers that the thea tre which had been engaged by Borghese, Pe rozzi, <fcc., was otherwise occupied, when they ar rived, and we understand that they will probably return directly here. If so, it is not improbable that we shall have, at the close of the season, an attempt to revive the Italian Opera here. Madame Pico's Concert.?It seems that Madame Pico cleared but 9300 by her concert at the Taber nacle, on Wednesday evening. The expenses were'set down at about the same sum,or rather over. We think it quite certain that those who have the management of these affairs, habitually overcharge for the expenses. We do not see how it is possible that the receipts of Madame Pico's concert, for in 9tance, could have been only three hundred dol lars, when there was over a thousand persons at 91 each in the house. Grand Temperance Celebration.?The tempe rance community unite in a great celebration at the Tabernacle this evening, in honor of the anni versary of Washington's birth-day. Vocal and in strumental music of a high order, and an oration by Mr. Chapin. ?f Boston, will make up the entertain ment. The occasion will be one of great interest, and will draw together a very crowded and elegant audience. This excellent mode of celebrating the day originated with the Prospect and Marshall So cieties?two highly respectable temperance associ ations, embracing a large share of the talent and worth enlisted in this city on the side of tempe rance, virtue and benevolence. Bachelors' Ball at the Astor.?77k ball of the season came off last night at the Astor. The company muBtered about six hundred strong, and included a larger amount of "fair women and brave men" than is often to be seen anywhere. The decorations of the saloon were splendid and tasteful?the music Dodworth's best?the supper magnificent, and, in short, a general combination of agreeable circumstances served to make the oc casion one of unalloyed delight. Theatricals ?Theatricals, in this city, are as low as municipal government. In their manage ment, we hardly know whether the Aldermen or the theatrical managers are the most dirty, deba sing, and demoralizing, in their public conduct. Weixh's National Circus.?The General's un rivalled company at the Park theatre continues to draw crowded audiences nightly. If he really means to gratify the New York people to the top of tneir bent, he will have to prolong Ins stay con siderably. Wall street a Cattle Market ?This famous street has become a regular cattle snd dog market. Cows, calves, dogs, and poultry, as well ss bulls and bears, are daily offered for 3ale there. Domestic Goodi.?Eighteen hundred packages of dry goods and one thousand barrels of oil came over the Long Island Railroad on Thursday from the East, in two trains. Tux National Shams ?The tallowing speako. for itself coLLireVoi'i <Of riui, "j Nsw Yoit, Keb. 30 th, 1846 Ma. Editor Some of the newspaper* publiibed in this city, Laving made atatementa relative to a box of books said to have been presented by the French Chamber of Deputise to the United States, I have oansed an investigation to be made relative thereto. It appears that toe books referred to, arrived at thla Port in the ship Utica, from Havre, in March, 1844, while Mr. Curtis was Collector oi the Port. On the 10;h of April, in completing the discl^rge of the ship under general order, the Inspector sent roe box in question to the Public Store. On comparing the Inspectors' return with the Master's manifest, it tfid not appear to be included in the latter. The Master of the Utica had no recollection of the shipment oi the box, nor did he know for whom it was intended. The Inspectors on board the Utica returned the box, as without mark er address. At the expiration of nine months, the box was opened by the public ap praisers, and reported to me as a box, " no mark," con taining "43 volumes ef French books," valued at "$40." In accordance with the law, no owner appearing, they, together with other unclaimed goods, soon afterwards were sold for the duties. The first intimation I received of their having been presented to the United States, or that some valuable works had been lost by nrgHgcnce, was from the public prints; but the facts in the case, will, I believe, attach no blame either to Mr. Cuitis or myself Wht tber the books oontained in the box furnished any in dication of the source Irum whenco they came, or Tor whom intended, I am unable to state. Had such an indi cation existed, it should not have escaped the notice ol the appraisers, whose duty it was to examine the contents of the nox, estimate the value, and report to me. Yours respectfully, C. P. VAN NESS, Very latk from South America.?Two fast sailing vessels, the Oriole, Captain Barstow, and Mary Chilton, Captain Corning, arrived yesterday from Rio de Janeiro, with the Jornol do Com mercio to the 4th ult. inclusive. The American frigates Raritan and Congress had arrived at Rio from the River Plate?the former on the 2d and the latter on the 4th. They left the Plate in company, proving the Raritan to be the fastest sailer. The brig of war Bainbridge was also at Rio. On the 1st of January, Congress was opened by the Emperor in person, who read a short speech from the throne. It announced that the health o! the Princess Januaria had induced him to consent that she should pass a year in Europe?that quiet was restored in the province ef Alagoas?and that a speedy result of the like nature was expected in the province of Rio Grande. The news from Rio Grande is, that a battle was fought on the 14th ef November, between 1170 Im perial troops and 1100 rebels. It resulted in the defeat of the latter, who left on the field 100 killed, and nearly 300 prisoners, including 33 officers, the Secretary of the Treasury of the Republic, with a great quantity of munitions of war. and 300 horses. Only three of the Imperialists were wounded. The comet was seen at Rio de Janeiro for two hours, on the 25th and 26th of Dec. The frigate Raritan left Montevideo on the 17th of December. On the 15th, that place was bom barded by Oribe. Over 100 twenty-four pound balls were thrown into the city, " doing" as the Chinese would say, " great slaughter," by killing one child, and wounding a few harmless individuals We find in the Jomol, the shipments of coffee for the last thrse years.

From the Britibh Provinces.?By the Hibei nia, we have our files of papers from the Eastern Provinces, from which we make the following ex tracts:? The Legislature of Newfoundland waa opened with the usual forms on the 16th ult. The Agricultural Bociety ol that island, held its third anniversary on the 8th ult.? From the report, it appears that the business of the socie ty had been under the management of a judicious com mittee. The cause of temperance seems to be flourish ? ing in 8t. John's, where a festival was held on the 27th ult., attended by the Governor, Lady Harvey, the Colo nial Secretary, Col. Law, and nearly six hundred of the Inhabitants. A public breakfast was also given by the Benevolent Irish Bociety, which was honored by the presence of the Governor, and other distinguised person ages. Four persons (an uncle and three nephews) named Mercer, were found frozen to death in an open boat, and taken into Broad Cove. The unfortunate individuals had left Port de Grace the day before on a shooting excursion. ??Halifax Herald. Several accidents have lately happened on the ice.? Thomas Hunt, Esq , late sheriff of Prince county, got in to the ice on his way from St. Eleanor's to Princetown, where he lost his horse, and with difficulty saved himself Another aocident of a similar nature happened on the 4th instant. Dr. Poole, having left Charlottetown for Belfast, to visit a sick person, mistook his route on his return, in consequence of thick weather, drove about two miles out side Governor's Island,until he got into the sea ice,where he unfortunately lost his horse and sleigh, and very near ly himself ?lb. We understand that the Lord Bishop of Jamaica (Dr. Spencer), has taken passage for Englend, and that his Lordship is not likely to remain much longer at Jamaica, owing to the state af his health; the climate of the island, we regret to learn, is altogether too oppressive for his constitution.?St. Joans, H.

Its princi pal feature is to sieze the arms of the inhabitants. Theatricals, die. Ole Bull gave a Concert in New Orleans, on the 13th inst., which was crowded to excess. The Southerners are in raptures with him. Burton re-opened the Front street Theatre, Baltimore on Wednesday evening, with a talented company. The Museum, at the Town Hall, Newburyport, was sold at auction on Wednesday. It was purchased entire by Mr. Kimball, of the Boston Museum, a ho intends to select the articles which he desires, and then offer tne remainder again at public sale. The Orphean Family gave their farewell Concert on Wednesday evening, to a large and attentive audience. - Tbey propose to give a concert at the Academy in Fair Haven this evening. Ameng the passengers in the Hibernia is Mocs. Phil lipp, the celebrated and unrivalled French necromancer, whose rare and curious performances have excited such universal wonder and admiration in tbejprincipsl cities of Europe. He brings with him his astonishing mechani cal apparatus, which is said by the London papers to have cost 60,000 francs in Paris. The Sable Sisters are giving Concerts in .New Bed ford. Booth, the actor, has been trying to get through an engagement at New Orleans, where hehasbeen at his old tricks again, and deeply involved in a fresh con spiracy pgainst himself. A New Orleans paper says, tnat on a recent occasion in the character of Brutus, from the frequency with which his shield intervened between him and his audience, and the strange effect produced upon him by the immersion of his face within it, we were led to believe that it contained a private reservoir ol something not recognized as a legitimate beverage by the followers of Father Muthew. Mr. Hill has proceeded to the South where he has seve ral engagements. Mr. Colmsn, who took out to England and France last year his celebrated AQollan Attachment to the piano forte which attracted so much notice in Paris and London,was a passeDger in the Hibernia. The Swiss Bell Ringers gave their first concert in Mo bile on the Uth inst., and were well received. Mr. Kice took a benefit at the National Theatre, Bos ton, on last evening. The Boston papers announce the death of Mr. William Barrymore?a very skilful and ingenious manager of stage machinery and "getter-up" of pieces, He was from England, but came to this country some twelve or fifteen years ago, and for a time attached to the Park The tre. Sener Joaquin Patino has arrived in New Orleans with the intention to engage Mr. Davis's French Company for the ensuing summer. If the engagement is effected, the company is to give a certain number of representations In the city of Mexico, and, some of the other principal cities in the Republic, lienor Patino's next move is to Italy, with the intention of engaging an efficient operatic troupe, which is to give representations alternately in Mexico and Cuba. Amongst the Christmas amusements at Astley's Am. phi thoatre, London, is a real fox chase, on the stage and in the circle,by a living fox and complete paok of hounds. There was "rum" there of course. Mr. Forrest hasjarrived in Paris and an effort it being made to get up another English company, with which he is to display bis histrionic powers. The Clai/urur* of Paris, appear to be an irnpoitant body in the theatrical circles of that city, and make h mer chantable commody ot their applause.or condemnation of each new piece or performer as they appear. They are admitted by the stage door, before the house Is open, and are well fed by the actors. Fanny Elstler always gave fifty francs a night. Gslignarii says that when Risley, "who certainly did not stand in need of hired applause, | was about to leave Paris, a demand was made upon him by the cluqueurt, for six hundred francs. Risley, who had never asked for their aid, was astonished; but, on being assured that the thing was quite regular, paid the de mand." i'crioual JUruBtnU.

Mr. Ciat aaya that Cincinnati, with all her "adjacen cies," haa now a population of 94,000 The annual in crease since in 1840 haa been 11 per cent, sufficient to double the population in seven years and a half.

There are eighty-seven railroads in the United States in a state of completion, the aggregate length of which is 4 703 milea.

One of the M P.'s was imme diately ordered to remain in the neighborhood ol the Pest Office. Police O/Hce?Friday.?Curious Case op Libel.? One of the moneurious libel cases that has ever come up in any court of justice, will probably be tried at the next j term of the Court of Sessions, or as soon after as practi- j cable. The accused is Herman Atwell, a custom house officer, and the complainant, Marcus Cicero Stanley, is an I individual not altogether unknown in this city. Th< complainant mckes affidavit that a certain pamphlet under the title ol " Autobiography of Marcus Cicero Stanley, of infamous notoriety, containing an account of his frauds ! and villanies, in Texas, London, Paris and New Yoik; 1 detailing his robbery in Texas, and murder ?f Levy Laz arus of New York, and his robbery of George Catlin in London, also, an account of his ? pigeoning' th< 'policy dealers' of New York and other cities. Dated New York, January, 1846. Probono publico," was published by John McLaughlin, of No. 11 Bowery, from aooriginai manuscript, written by Atwell, and corrected by Dr Thiers. He sets forth that" it makes him (Stanley) ap pear n monster of iniquity, which the deponent believes he is not" The affidavit concludes in these words? " That the said Atwell has written a nLmber of letters to a certain lady, whose name, from a personal, regard for her, deponent is unwilling to mention, in which he avows the most tender and ardent love for the said lady, coupled with a determination to [sink deponent and in jure him both in his oharacter and person. That the said A. is married, and has two children, and is a clerk in the Custom House el this city, and in the receipt of a large salary, and is able to give good and heavy bail." Upon this affidavit A. was arrested. He has also been arrested and held to bail in a civil suit for damages. When the trial comt s up, some of the funniest and most peculiar de velopments will oome out. The letters spoken of are pe culiarly rich.

Croat ex ammation of Wesson, resumed ?I have never had any dif ficulty with Adams; and the only time I ever had words with him was in the spring of 1843, and I continued to be his friend until 1 found out the fraud of Suydam, Bare fc Co., and then 1 cut his acquaintance ; I knew that Aaam* was paying attention to Miss Wallace, my wife's sister, and that be had offered her soma insult; I never said to Jennings, that before this time, Adams would be a dead man ; I was advised of matters by letters from my wife; I never said I would shoot him, nor did I ever bet that be fore a certain period, he would be a dead man. When Mr. A. was arrested, I was in the town ; and when he waa put into the carriage, I waa at Madeira's Hotel; 1 was requested to go with them by 8. 8. k Co."s attorney, in case any attempt should oe made to get him off on a writ of hmbeat corpxu, so that I might be used as a witness ; 1 followed the hack with the lawyer in a buggy ; we went pretty fast; Mr. Thowman was employed by my recom mendation at the request of Messrs. 8. 8. k Co. I have never said that I would send him to Sing Slug. I have said that 8 8. k Co. could make out a clear case of swindling; I dont know that I have said my testimony would make it out, and I might have said that 1 knew enough to send him to Sing 8ing, but I don't know that I have; when I came on in in the spring, I came on as n witness; 1 did not bring any papers with me; but in the fall I came on on my own bu siness; I left directions for my clerk, Mr. Joline, to come on; he brought Mr. Adams; when 1 took the receipts from Adams, I did thhik the property was on hand: the re | ceipts were signed on blank, and I don't think that either Watts or Seymour saw the receipts alter they were filled up; I think that Watts and Seymour are responsible men, and have property enough to liquidate the receipts signed a them, that is if they divided it equally; Adams' ere was great in Ohio; his character was excellent There was no other man in the State of the age of Mr. Adams, that had better character or greater credit. Ho has been in business since and before he was 31, and was always honorable,prompt and punffial in his payments and he never made an unfortunate speculation till the flour speculation; he could have got money to almost any amount In Ohio; there was a scarcity of bar rels at the time of our pork operations ; Adams bought 8000 barrels from Mr Finney; Martin told me this sum mer that Adams contracted to buy pork, to be paid for at a future dsy, to the amont of about $4000, and failing to p?y at the time, he sold them (W. R k Co) hams to set tle the amount; during the time oj our business relations I purchased a great many thousand hogs of him. Explanatory ?I have the means of showing thai Mr Adams it now indebted tome; I was advised that Adams had insulted Miss Wallace, that Wallace had challenged him, and ho had accepted the challenge, but left the city: after I saw him at the Astor House, I assured him that Wallace had not followed him to shoot him, and that the matter should not be pursued.

At 10 minutes 01 ii o'clock the prosecution rested their case. The Defence.?Mr. Stansbuby, a talented and emi nent member of the Ohio bar, associated with some of our most emiueat lawyers for the defence, then rose, and said the defenoe had waited patiently until the prosecution had exhausted their case, to raise the question cf juris diction, and to ask the question what have thia Court to do with thia man 7 How far haa he rendered himself liable to the State of New York 1 He hat been brought here Irom Ohio by a process from this State, to make him amenable to a criminal prosecution here, and charged with what 7 Why, that he had obtained acceptaacea, and made receipts at Ohio, and it appeared that there waa no auch property in the possession of Seymour It Watts; that they ail knew it at the time, and that Seymour, Watts and Adams u-cd it to defraud S. 8. k Co. The in dictment chaigea every thing to have been done in the Stateof New York, by Samuel Adams of the city of New York : and what did the proof establish? Why that the defendant had never been in New Yoik untii March, that he was a native of Ohio, and was there :it the time the false pretences are said to have been made. At the time of making, signing, and obtaining the receipts?he was not here, but was in Ohio?not casually there, but perma nently ; and there prooured Seymour 8c Watts to sign blank rtceipts of the possession of property, and with the assistance of Wesson Ailed them up?then drew droits and obtained others upon them to be turned into money is Ohio, and there was used. He had never seen Sage, Suy dam 8c Co., was a total stranger u> them, and it was upon the soil of Ohio that be did all these acts. The bills were undoubtedly intended for acceptance, and to be paid by by S. S. 8c Ce. here in New York, The prosecution con tend, therefore, that the defendant has done acts intended to be consumated in New Yoik, and thereby laying him under the criminal jurisdiction oi this State. The gen tlemen contended that the reason he was brought to New York, was that there was no orirainal statute to punish him in Ohio. That the question simply was, whether Adams, who lived In another State, and was never in this, can be brought here by virtue of some agency set upon him, and tried for an ottence, il committed at all commit ted there He urged that he could not?that New Yoik had no jurisdiction. He qitoted many authorities, and presented many ingenious arguments to support his posi tion, which he urged with great ability, clearness, and eloquence, for two hours ana a half. Mr. Wood then read some authorities, and addressed a brief argument to the Ceurt to illustrate them. Ooden Hoffman, Esq , for the people, then addressed the Court in bis usual and impressive style ef eloquence for a considerable length of time, answering the argu ments oi Mr. Stansbury, and maintaining an opposite ground, contending the court had full jurisdiction, inas much as the crime had been consummated here?the mo ney having been obtained here. He also cited numerous authorities. Jambs R. Whiting, Esq., also fer the people, addressed the Court. He commenced by asking wnat judgment they could pronounce upon the question before ihem 7? They could not non-suit the people. It was a question of fact for the jury to determine, and not the Court, whether the otfenoe was committed within the jurisdiction. Hs contended that the defendant, by pleading not guilty, and putting himself upon the country for trial, acknowledged the jurisdiction of the court ever his person; and ilhe had intended to deny it, he should have done so by plea; bat having put himself upon trial, the Court had no power to take the cause bom the jury. Geo. Wood, Esq., closed the argument for the defence in a speech of an nour and a half. At 10 o'clock the Court adjourned till this morning at II o'clock. Superior Court Before Judge Oakley.

There was a (light panic in the stock market to day,and the quotations fell off from j to 2} per oent. All the fancies declined. Norwich It Worcester, 2 per cent.; S.onington, 2i; Morris Canal, 3; Long Island, 3; Farmers' Loan, If; Erie Railroad, 1; Canton, }; Pennsylvania 6's, 1; Illinois, 1 ; United States Bank olosed firm at yesterday's prices, and Kentucky 6's improved j. The sales of fancies were quite large. The only cauae of this great decline is the roaotion a rising market invariably produces. Yesterday the advance on quotations current the day previous, was greater than the decline to-day, and prices to morrow will in all probability show an advance on those current to* day. Monay is very plenty, and the speculative excite ment qu te strong, and with the ability and the disposi tion to get np a speculation,there must be an active move ment in stocka sooner or later. Quotations fluctuate very much just previous to a steady advance, and the market for a time generally very feverish, but as the excitement increase* prices become ftrmer,and a steady improvement ia realised, until the bubble becomes too much inflated, and explodes, scattering ruia and bankruptcy among those engaged in operations connected with the specula tion. We see by the recent reports of the banks of this city and State, that a very great contraction has been made in their loans and discounts within the quarter ending the 1st instant. We have no doubt these banks were induced to draw in their resources, soon alter the tesutt of the late Presidential contest was known, so as to be in a condition to meet any exigency in commercial affairs that might grow out of the movements of the new administration. Since the election,the public mind has beoome settled,and both parties have been able to look about them and take a calm view of political and financial altairs. The result of this is the conviction that no great change will be made in oar commercial systems; that the govern ment will not change the present mode of collecting, safekeeping and disbursing the revenue, tl^ft business generally will be little aflected by the change in the gov. ernment, and that prosperity will continue to smile upon us in spite of the wishes of politicians and the efforts of a few party manoeuverer*. This being settled, the banks of this city and State hava completely changed their policy, and have been expanding for the past two or three weeks. They prefer loaning upon itoc> secu rities, and refuao businass paper in every instance, where they can. The banks consider stock loans safer and more profitable than loans on the ordinary run of com mercial paper, and therefore afford facilities to the bro kers, instead of favoring the mercantile elasaes. The merchants are in consequence compelled to go into tho street with their bills receivable, and io obtaining di*. counts, submit to a shave. We see by this that the banks of this city are at preient almost exclusively devoted to the interests ot the stock speculators. The condition of the southern and western sections of the country is at present so unfavorable in consequence of the low price of their principal staples, that it has affected the credit of the merchants of this city doing business with those sections of tho country, and induced the banks to throw out as much of their paper offered as they can. All these things favor stock speculators, and increase specula tions, while they serve to contract the legitimate busi ness of the country, and create embarrassment* among these classes,which have heretofore been the best custom er* of theao banks.
