J0L Theeitensive application of the system of small profits, caah payments and large salea to many branches of business in this city within a few years, and the eminent success which this plan deserves, and has in almost ev?ry instance received, has led the subscriber to test its application to the HATTfNG business. In a city whose inhabitants are widely distinguished for neatness and taste in dress, and at the same time for econo my and thrift, there seems great reason to believe that asvstem which enables the community to gratify a laudable partiality for neatness a an unpr-cedentedly small espense, will meet with no small degree of favor. Drtennined to ascertain wh-tlier a branch of business w hich concerns the head and pocket of every man in the community, cannot be conducted on this plan, the subscriber has employed a large number of the best workmen in the manufacruriug and firithmg departments; also skilful and tasty Cap Makers. Each department is under the constant supervision of an experienced foreman.

The Slave Trade in Brazil ?A message was received from the President in the House, accom panied by some communications from Mr. Wise, our Minister to Brazil, on the Bubject of the trade in slaves by citizens of the United States and Brit ish subjects. To the Senate and House OK Representatives or the United States I transmit, harewith, for the information of Congress, copies of certain despatches recently received from Mr. Wise, our Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipo tentiary to the Couitof Brazil, upon the subject of the Slave Trade ; developing the means used and the devices r??or?<-,t tn jn or(jGr to evade existing enactments upon the subject Auaiuiimy desirous as are the United Sta esto suppress a i rattic so revolting to humanity, in the efforts to accom p'ish which they have been the pioneers of civilized States, it cannot but be a subject cf the most profound regret, that any portion of our citizens should be found acting in co operation with the subjects of other powers, in opposition to the policy of their own Govarnment; thereby subject ing to suspicion and to the hazard of disgrace tbe Aug of their own country. It is true this traffic is carried on al together in foreign ports, and our own coasts arc free from its pollution. But the crime remains the same where vet perpetrated, and there are many circumstances to warren' the belief that some of our citizens are deeply involve*1 in its guilt. The mode and manner of carrying on this trade are clearly and fearlessly set forth in the accompanying doc uments. and it would seem that a regular system has been adopted for the purpose of thwarting the policy and eva ding the penalties ol our laws. American vessels, with the knowledge, as there are good reasons to believe, of the owners and masters, are chartered or rather pure It as t-d by notorious slave dealers in Brazil, aided by English brokers and capitalists, with this intent. Tbe vessel is only nominally chartered at so much per month, while, in truth, it is actually sold, to be delivered on the coar of Africa, the charter party binding the owners, in the meantime, to take an hoard,as passengers, anew crew in Brazil, who, when delivered on the coast, are to navigate her back to tbe ports of Brazil with her cargo of slaves. Under this agreement, the vessel clesrs from the United States for some port in Great Britain, where a cargo ol merchandise, known as''coast goods," and designed es pecially for the African trade, is purchased, shipped and con'igned, together with tbe vessel, either to the slave lealer himself or to his agents or accomplices in Brazd. On her arrival a crew is put on board as passengers, and :he vessel and cargo consigned to an equally guilty fac tor or agent oa the coast of Africa, where the unlawful purpose, originally designed, is finally consummated.? The merchandise is exchanged for slaves?the vessel is lelivered up?her name obliterated, her papers destroyed hej American crew discharged, to: be provided for by th? charterers, and the new or passenger crew put in com mand to carry back its miserable freight to the first con trivers of the voyage, or their employees in Brazil. During the whole progress of this tortuous enterprise it is possible that neither the American crew originally en listed, nor the passenger crew put on board in tne Brazili an porta, are aware of the nature of the voyage, and yet it is on these principally .ignorant, if not innocent, that th? penalties of the law are in dieted; while the guilty contri | vers, the charterers, brokers, owners and masters?in I short, all who are most deeply concerned in the crime and its rewards, for the most part escape unpunished. It is also worthy of consideration whether other measures ban those now existing, are necessary to give greater efficacy to the just and humane policy of our laws, whicb already provide for the restoration to Africa of slaver captured at sea by American cruisers. From time to time provision has been made by this Government for their comfortable support and maintenance during a limited period after their restoration, and it is much to be regret ted that this liberal policy has not been adopted by Great Britain. As it is, it seems to me, that the policy it har idopted, is calculated rather to perpetuate than to sup press the trade, by enlistiDg very large interests in it favor. Merchants and capitalista furnish the meant for carrying it on;?manufactures for which the'negroea are exchanged are the product* of her work-shops; the slaves, when captured, instead oi being returned back to their homes, are transferred to her colonial possessions in the West Indies, and made the means of swelling the amount of their products, by a system of apprentice-ship for a erm of years, and the officers, and crew who capture the vessel, receive on the whole number of slaves, so many pounds sterling per capita by way of bounty. It will he seen from the examinations which have re cently taken place at Rio, that the subjects of her Britan nic Mriesty, as well as our own citizens, are deeply im plicated in this inhuman traffic British factors anJ agents, while they supply Africa with British fabrics in exchange for slaves, are chiefly instrumental in the abuse if the American flag ; and the suggestion* contained ir the letter of Mr. Wise, (Whose judicious and zealous ef forts in the matter, cannot be too highly commended,) ad dressed to Mr. Hamilton, the British F.nvoy, as to the best mode of suppressing the evil, deserve your most delibe rate consideration, as they will receive, I doubt not, that of the British government. It must be obvions, that while these large interests are mlisted in tavor of its continuance, it will b" difficult, it not impossible, to suppress the nefsrious traffic, and tha its results would be in eff-ct but a continuance of the -lave trade of another and more cruel form ; for it can be 1 matter of little difference with the African, whether I-? is torn from his country and transported to the West In lies, as a slave, in the regular course of the trade, or cap '.ured hy a cruiser, transported to the same place and nade to perlorm the same labor under tbe name of an ap prentice, which "is at present the practical operation ol the policy adopted. It ia to be hoped that Her Britannic Majesty's Govern ment will, upon a review of all the circumstances stater m these despatches, adopt more efficient measures for the suppression of the trade, which she has so long attempted to put dswn, with, at yet, so little success, and more con <onant with the original policy of restoring the captured African to his home JOHN TYLER.

Abolition of the Crimes of Seduction and Adultery ?Justice to the Netv York Pilots?Early Resump tion of Navigation -Rail Road to New Haven Ice Breaker?Value of Livingston If Co's Ex press. Dear Sir t One or two sessions ago, when the bill providing for the punishment of seduction and adultery was under discussion in the Assembly, a vast amount of virtuous and eloquent indignation was expended on the part of various members. Among them was a Mr. Hathaway, something of a wag, who, after making a brilliant speech in favor of the bill, pro ceeded to kill it by the following joint resolution: " Resolved, If the Honorable the Senate concur, that the crimca of adultrey and seduction, be, and the same are hereby abolished! Yesterday, in the House, the bill reported by Mr. Huntington, chairman of the select committee, came up. Mr. Van Valkenburgh, of Steuben, read a speech, surcharged with quotations from Solo mon's ^Songs, the Scriptures, and .British classics. The ladies' gallery was speedily cleared. Mr. Baily, Mr. Huntington, and Mr. Oakley also spoke upon the subject. While Mr. Folsom was harangu ing the Senate in opposition to the New York pilots, several of the senators made their way into the As sembly, and listened to the more exciting debate on the bill of Mr. Huntington. In the concrete there is doubtless a reasonable share of virtue among the legislators; but, abstractly considered, our Solon? are no more righteous than their consti tuents. The bill under consideration will not pass, unless it is much amended. The Evening Journal says that all the New York papers, except the Herald, have taken ground against the message of Governor Wright, regarding the pilots, thereby, in the view of the Journal, showing that the Governor is wrong ! What says the " T^mts of Amtrica" on this subject 1 In the Senate, the discussion of the report and resolutions of Senator Jones, was continued to-day. And, in passing, we may observe, that this report does Mr. Jones much credit, and is alike worthy of his head and heart. If the other Senators from the first district shall be laid on the shelf, and for gotten at the expiration of their respective terms, Senator Jones has much to hope for and expect from the generous democracy of his district, who never forget or neglect a faithful, zealous and gen tlemanly public servant. The debate on the reso lutions relating to the pilots was carried on to-day by Senators Jones, Johnson. Folsom and Putnam; the first two in favor of, ana the last two in oppo sition to, the interests of the hard-working and de serving New York pilots. One thing is pure?the resolutions will be speedily passed through the Le gislature, and a? speedily transmitted by Governor Wrisht to our Senators and Representatives iu Congress. You need not be surprised to see a steamboat from Albany snugly moored at the usual place in New York in the course of a few days. The Mo lt <wk and Cohoesare free from ice,and the Hudson at Troy is wholly open One or two more such days as this, and the fountains of the great deep will be broken up, the ice will move off bodily, and, in three hours, a steamboat will be ploughing down the river at the rate of twenty miles an hour. A very large and beautifully executed map was displayed in the ante-room of the Assembly Cham ber to-dav, representing the route of a proposed 'ailroad from New York to New Haven Mr. Twining is the engineer. If this plan is carried out, there will be no more detention of passengers and the mail by reason of foes or ice in the Sound. Why does not some enterprising and wealthy man take hold of Townsend's ice-breaker t It would tie precisely the thing for such a man as H . I., evens. T Stevens. The project has been demonstrated to be perfectly feasible; and by the use of this boat, . the Hudson could be kept ofaar of ioe during the ? whole winter.

Before the Recorder and Aldermen Cozzens and Haa w brouck. _ Mzttjhkw C. PiihH.M.N, Diitrict Attorney. J . ?S Samuel Jidamt concluded.? Que mI ton of Jurisdiction?Important Vtcuion of the Court.- In the case ot Samuel Adorns, upon the question of jurisdiction, so ably aigucd yeateiday, the Recorder delivered the Col lowing opinion and decision of the court, und it ia one of ve_ry great importance, involving the interest of the whole commercial community, and if it is sustained by be superior tribunals, will have a great egect upon r^urs Kenpra'> especially upon speculators. The Recorder said that in relation to the question of jurisdiction which had been so ably argued both tv the prosecution and the defence, the coi it must express their regret that they had had such a brie! pericrt toTxamine authorities quoted by the counsel. The question was <?!e of great importance, involving great principles, and in its applicationi greatly interesting to the commercial com munity and to every citizen ; but ai the term of the court must necessarily expire by law at 12 o clock to night, 'hey could not havo time to examine more closely the question presented for their consideration. He would rema k, however preliminary, that whatever the views it the court were in relation to the question, they did not led authorised by law to take the case from the jury but he views ef the court would be given to the jury, h^.v. W^* fortKm to "J1 how far they were influenced by the views of the court. It waa necessary, however ' ue .,0 the counsel to state to them the opinion of tke court. In the flrat place it has been established that cer iflcatea were obtained in Ohio, by a citizen of Ohio, and ?ransmitted to this city with drafts upon them, and these en ?cc?Pted here, and the acceptance was grounded upon the belief that the property waa actually in 'fore-. The question ia, was the offence committed here or in Ohio. The alleged offence waa of a mixed charao ler II it was commeneed and consummated there, it coulfl not clearly be tried herein this State, but if it was com mitted there and consummated here, the question arises how- lar forth the State ol New York have jurisdiction ? u the cMe oi a libel which ia written in one county and transmitted to another, and there lully published, the of lettceis punishable in the county where it ia published ?nd has been very properly fceld so. So in the case of noison transmitted Irorn one county to another, and taken >y direction under false inducements, if the person dies he offence is clearly punishable where he dies?and this ?.tie bad been supposed by the prosecution, and the court ??incurred with them in their view of the matter. So in the cue supposed of a man atanding on the shore of New Jersey , and shooting a man standing on the shore of this Mate, the oflence would be clearly indictable here, be cause the act was consummated here-here the shot would ?ke effect. In carefully examining the cases cited by i h- proaecution, marked difference exists between them ?nd the one now presented-for there the acts had been committed and consummated under our general sorer 'ignty, either in the same State, or rendered in the Engl u.h cases cited, one general government, and one juna iction. No one case occurs where it has been extended 0 sovereign and independent States, or from one govern nent to another, and what difference is there between the .^dependence of 8tates and the independence of gavern nents ? The States are all under independent govern ments in all criminal matters, and so distinct from each ?'.her as is England from France. There are, however certain rght* of sovereignty common to all the State* is a general government. A citizen of Ohio can come here mid hold real estate, although living m Ohio, and he can become, after a residence lerci of six months, a citizen ot this 8late, and entitled to ill the privileges of a citizen, u if he had been born here vbercas a foreigner is compelled to pus a evitain term >iere, and even then is compelled to obtain bis naturaliza 1 >n papers before he can become a citizen. The general rights ol a citizen of oDe State in another are of a purely municipal cheracter ; but upon the main question the S atea are sovereign and independent The Court were -truck by the arguments of the defence as testing the question of allegiance-it can be either temporary and cal or permanent, and terminated at the option of the ,'irty. Is that temporary allegiance enough tobrinr ?citizen into this State u a fug Hive (rem justice?! the law is, that an offender in one State shall be handed -verto the authorities of another; where the party is a ?ugitive lrom justice, and shall flee from one State to ano ther, the constitution provides that he shall be sntrender I up from the State to which he has flown, and deliver 1 to the authorities of the State having jurisdiction of ne offence?and what is this provision lor? Why, to onsolidate the government* of the States. Can any one 'oubt that it ia necessary for a party to have bean a tem porary or permanent resident, belore he can flee 7 They ould not certainly construe it otherwise, and they looked lion the constitution as giving the power in specific ?mes, when a party has fled from justice. It wu urged m the part of the prosecution that this view of themat ? r would present sd anomaly, for there would be crime ?ommitted without power to punish the commission t the oitcDCe?and, therefore' seek to show the *b irdity of that construction of the law. Before the eaty stipulation, ii a man stole money or property in rreat Britain, and then fled to this country, would the ?<w permit us to punish him, or could be be punish I at all? ;No !?and that was thecauaeof the stipu ;tton, that the criminal might be brought to justice.? 'be question then is, what is cecFsraiy to give a tem porary allegiance lrom which there must be a Hieing 7? The States had no power over criminals in another Siate, as decide I in the case cited by defence, from Taylor* t cports. When the Legislature of North Carolina had ussed a law to punish persons who in Virginia had utter 1 counterfeit notes of the banks of the State of North urohna, and sent emissaries into their state to past them, ud under which law a person had been indicted, but the ?urt pronounces the law unconstitutional and the offen ?ercould not be punished for want of jurisdiction The tecorder said that he bad stated the views of tbe court ?ry succinctly, and after realte but a few moments time i examine the authorities, and he leered he had imper -ctly expressed himself. He would state, however, that le casually had an interview with Judge Oakley, of the ?uperior Court, who stated to him that he and Chief Jos ice Jonas and Judge Vaaderpoel, were unanimously oi i? opinion, when the case came up before them, on a ib- as corpus, that this State had no jurisdiction, but iey denied the motion to discharge on other gounda. '. eming thet this court had the power to decide i# question and that tbay had no right to take ie uefendent out ofitscustody. These views, con inued the Recorder, will be presented to the Jury s advisory, for the Court canDOt take the case vay from them, and nonsuit the people; and it is ?r the Jury to determine how far forth they acknow dgo the law of the Court. We should see the barriers, ?listing between the sovereign States, broken down at ttcojand I confess myself unwilling to acknowledge insdictioni and th* majority of the Court are of this opi um My associate on the right, (Aid Cozzens.) differs cm us, and will, per'iaps, express his views upon the ?ibj.ct. (Some contusion and general conversation en ?lei.andthe general impression among the members ot ic bat, seemed lo be that the decision of the Coutt was a Jnnd and legal one.) District Attosnky?(After a consultation af some uinutes duriuion,)?II the Court please, we propose to /iihdraiv a juror, witli the consent of the defence, that liis question may l>c taken up before the Supreme Court, 'ecause it is a question of gieat interest to New Yolk, <oil to the citiz< ns of Ohio, and all other States, and it ia mportant to have the question presented to them, and ;o up lor review. Mr. 8tai?s?cry would not consent to this, the defendant ?ad come here for trial, and was ready to 'go on, and if ho prsMcntion desire that the Jury should set up their pinion pgainst the Court, why let them have their way. I* thought the case could be finished to day, and would urrender the great right of summing up. The defend nt wanti d to have the case settled at once, foritwaa in possible for bim to come here again. If they want to nive the law settled for them, said Mr. 8., well givo it a them, we'll have that fully settled, for we shall bring . suit for talse imprisonment against theparties that have longht us here, and then they can test the law. Mr. Oraham called the attention of the Court to the ise of Smith Davis, in which his Honor Recorder Mor ins instructed the Jury that they were bound to take the ii w from the Court in cumina! as well as in civil caaes, tnh sa they knew the law ol the Court to be wrong, vhir.h ruling was confirmed by the Supreme Court. Alter a lengthy consultation, the District Attorisit "am proposed to withdraw n Juror with the conaent of lie defence, and enter a nolle prosequi upon the indict nrnt. They can then interpose .1 special plea of want of irisdiction to the other Indictment, to which wo shall tarn auswer, and to that anawer they can demur, and ii'is it csn be taken up to the Supreme Court. Mr. Staksrury consented to tnis course, but wished it i be understood that the bail should not be forfeited, and ist be should be given due notice when the case came up again. The first Juror was then withdrawn, and a nol pros en tered on the indictment. Several prisoners not Indicted were discharged on ap plication of the District Attorney, in consequence of the inability of finding the witnesses. At half past 1 o'clock, the Court adjourned for the term.
