[Correspondence of the Herald.] Baltimobe, June 18, 1846. Death of Oeneral Jackson?The Barney Libel Cut?Slave Caie?*4 Christian Quarrel?Minuter to England?Fir f ? Markets, ft, The new* of the death of General Jackton wu receiv ed in this city laat evening, and cauied coniiderable ex" citement, although the itate of hi*-health, for loroe time past, gave auurance that *uch a result might be daily expected. There will doubtless be mock funerals, and other appropriate demonstrations of respect to his memo ry here. The Barnoy libel case was brought to a close on Satur- ! day, by a verdict of $800 in favor of William Chase Bar ney: The defendant, the Hon. John Barney, likes the re sult very well, considering that the amount claimed was $36,000, but the plaintiff is by no means satisfied with the verdict, and has given notice that he intends to appeal on the decision of the court in ruling out certain testimony, which was highly important to the making out of his case. i The trial of Captain Jason L. Pendleton, on the charge of misdemeanor, in having command of the brig , Manchester, on the Coast of Africa, which was intended ' for the slave trade, commencod in the U. S. District 1 Court on Saturday, and will, doubtless, continue for seve ral days. He was tried at the last term of the Court for piracy, and acquitted. Quite a bitter quarrel has taken place among the offi cial brethren in tne Kxeter street Methodist Episcopal Church, which bids fair to cause a permanent breach among the members of that church. The leaders of the two antagonistical parties, one representing the aristo cracy of the church, and the other the hard-fisted mem bers, are gentlemen, who have heretofore been consider ed the very " salt of the earth." They have gone so far ; in the war of words, however, as to insinuate, in pretty ' broad terms, that the " truth is not in" each other; ana, i indeed, as 1 passed the front of the church, a few eve nings since, so belligerent were the parties, that 1 al most anticipated a regular row. The church is under the pastoral care of the Rev. Henry Slicer, formerly ; Chaplain of Congress, who, being a good democrat, ? takes sidos with the poor against the'rich; and, as it has j been said of him, ;? he was born to command," victory must settle on hh side of tho controversy. The congre fation will he ultimately split up and divided, as, in eed, many a seat in its old walls was yesterday va cant, that hat seldom before been* untenanted, j The cause of the difficulty is said to be of many years > standing, and relates altogether to the pecuniary affuirs and xecular business of the church; which, on account ol its heretofore, for a number of years, having been in charge of ministers with good-natured, easy souls, ha* ; been allowed to get into a most disorderly condition. It ! is to be regretted, however, that any thing of this kind I should cause so belligerent a display among " brethren i who should live in unity, friendship, and the bonds of ? peace." The scoffer can now sarcastically point his fiu 5er at them, and say, " See ! tee ! how these brethren ve together." Shame ! gentlemen, shame on you ! Why not meet together at once, smoke the calumet of peace, bury the hatchet, and settle your difficulties like Chris tion men. A rumor, which appears to be generally credited, has been in circulation in this city, for two days past, that the special mission to England, to settle the Oregon ques j tion, has been tendered to Louis McLane, Esq., now Pre sident of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Louis 1 McLane is as genuine a whig as Baltimore can produce. : saving and excepting his opposition to the United States ! Bank. There seems to be little or no doubt but that he has been offered the appointment I The extensive carpenter shop of Dixon St Hopkins, | corner of Eutaw street and Carpenter's Alley, was to ' tally destroyed by fire on Sunday morning. Lois about ! $2000, and no insurance. j The price of Howard street flour has been stationary , for some days past at $4 50 for goad mixed brands, and I some sales have been made at that price. The receipt i price is $4 37}. There has been no sales of City Mills, but it continues to be held at $4 56 a $4 62}, according to quality. The groin market is, of course, dull at this season of the year. Maryland good, to prime red wheat is worth 85 to no cents, and prime white wheat, for family flour, will bring from 98 to 103. White Maryland Corn, if there was any in market, would bring 37} cents, and yellow from 39 to 40 cents. Oata 36 to 27 cents, and j Rye 55 a 67. Baltimore is a great whiskey market, but the demand j for some time past has been very limited. The few sales I that are making are at 20 cents for hhds. and 21 for bbls | Maryland 6's sold on Saturday at 77J, being an advance j of nearly 11 during the week. The returning honesty of the people in coming so nobly to the support of the ) State by tho payment of their taxes, is the cause of thin ; great improvement Vindex. Boston. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Boston, June 17, 1845. The Coming Celebration?lit Extent?The Sailor'* Home ?New Streeti? Theatricali, <f-e. The weather i* quite warm here at preient, and vale tudinarians, and those who can afford to spend a con" siderable sum for cool summer enjoyments, are daily leaving the din and bustle of our city for the cooling shades of a country residence. Nothing is thought of, nothing is talked of here now, but the coming celebration, and there it no exaggeration in stating that the interest it ha* awakened is equal to any of the Whig processions last autnmn. And as a great many merchants, officers in banks, clerks, store kee^rs, mechanics, and men of every profession?the flower ol our young men, are all connected with this respectable and increasing order, I would not consider it strange if our banks, insurance offices, stores, and other places of business, were closed, and business entirely suspended for the day. The Boston and Lowell railroad have re duced their rate offare for that day, in order to accommo date the Odd Kellows, and it is probable that the othei railroad routes will follow their exnmule. The Orieutal Lodge, of Now Vork, have accepted the invitation of the Orieutal Lodge of Boston, to be their guests on the occa sion, and itis expected that SO of the O L. of New Vork will come on. 1 hear of no other invitations ; but those who come, may rely on the mest courteous treatment from their hospitable Bostonian brethren. Their head quarters it the .Marlboro'Chapel. It undoubtedly will prove one of the most splendid processiens, considering their banners and regalia, that ever has been exhibited to the view of sight-staring Bostonians. The most interest ing part of the day to the fair sex, will be the evening's levee. The Sailors' Home, in Purchase street, which was taken down this spring by one of our marine societies, to whom it belongs, is nearly rebuilt It is greatly enlarged, and is built ol brick, with a hewn granite front. A new Mariner's House is to be built this season. Both these houses have, for some years, been conducted by respon sible persons chosen by the Societies to which the estab lishments belonged, and these institutions have been ol incalculable advantage to many a poor tar. The Kev. Mr. Lord, of the Kort Hill Seamen's Chapel, has the pas toral supervision of the Sailor's Home, and Rev. E. T Taylor, of the Mariner's Church, performs the same duty for the Mariner's House. I perceive that on most of the new streets, in the south part of the city, that trees are planted on the sidewalks, which, when grown, give a semi-rural appearance to the dwellings. Our Malls (we have only three) and Common, are clothed in their richest verdure, and the trees covered with their summer foliage. Oreat numbers assemble on the Common in the evenings, and some boys with some half a dozen dogs, greatly amuse the pedestrians bj throwing the?e dogs in the small artificial pond, and thereby causing them to swim to the apparently no little pleasure of the grinning multitude. Although the weather is warm, and ice in demand, every kind of business is in a prosperous state, and theie is nut a man, to my knowledge, that will work and want* to w ork, but can get employment by making the necessa ry inquiries for it. The theatros are doing a tolerable business, as usual The little Washington Theatre will run somewhat on both the Museum and National. A staff of police are in attendance at the Washington Theatre in oraer to pre serve order. The Eagle Club, better known by the designation of Native Americans, celebrate the 17th (to-day) by a caval cade and oration on Bunker Hill. Lewis C. Levin, for merly editor (perhaps is now) of the "Philadelphia Sun," ia to be the orator of the day. John Bust an. Theatrical*, Ac. Ole Bull arrived in Boston on Saturday in rapid route from Cleveland, Ohio. The minstrel is delighted with hit western tour, and most enthusiastic in appre ciation of the natural wonders he beheld during its pro gross. The Norwegian tallt a funny itory of a hurri cane experienced on board a western steamer which swept parts of the vessel away, and occasioned great discomfiture and flight amongst the passengers. "Let all go," said he to his servant, "except the violin case."? Not moaning, however, all the live stock (men and wo men) on board, but merely his own personal effects, the whole value of which were as nothing to him in compa rison with that match less Steiner. He says he found in , the west that he was no longer an old bull, but simply en "old hoss," and he returns delighted with the latter characteristic appellation, expressed nearly I all along the great western valley, as "how are you old hoss7" (with a hearty grip of the hand) or, "(Jood day old hoss, you're looking smartly," <kc. lie. which are really the usual forms ot cordial greeting in tome towns iu the western States. Ole Bull will give a Concert in the courte of the week, probably the last in Boston pre vious to his return to Europe. The Hughes family are giving Concerts in Charles ton with great sucoeei. T. D. Rice commenced a short engagement at the Baltimore Museum on Monday evening last The Congo Melodists are in Philadelphia. Mr. Booth i? proving very attractive at the Rich mond Theatre.

Bi.mos considered it was more expensive te get the Are apparatus repaired in the public yards than on the siiot where they were located Aid. Bricks moved to have the report laid on the table and printed Aid. Connor considered it ought to be printod, as not six in the Board knew anything about it. [Laughter J Alderman Benson considered that there were many abuses in the yard, particularly in relation to sick horses which wete put in the charge of farriers.

AicKeon, | as if I had performed all that is necessary to induce this Court to grant the adjournment which I am about to soli cit at your Honor's hanus. It !? not my purpose to eulogize Andrew Jackson. The mention of his name at once recalls the services render ed his country. No language of mind could portray with sufficient power the gratelni recollection entertainod by the American people for his memory. In such an hour of sadness political Jilt'erencea are lorgotton-the howl ol party malignity is bushed over the grave of the mighty tieau. The recollection of brilliant deeds, accomplished for the honor and welfare of our common country, alone engrosses the public mind. It is an hour for meditation over the actions of the soldier and statesman, who served the Unien, bravely, zealously, faithfully. Satisfied of the high regard which this Court entertain for the services of tbe deceased, and of its desire to pay every mark of respect to the memory of the "illustrious dead," I move that this Court order an adjournment for the day. Judge In<ikaiiam made an eloquent reply, and directed the Clerk to enter on the minutes the proceedings, and that the Court be adjourned until to-morrow at 10 A M. V. N. Circuit Court.

June 17?This Court was adjourned, in order to testify its respect for the memory of the departed "Hero of New Orleans.'' The Office of County Clerk? Argument of the Attoriiey-Oeneral, before the Conrt of Errors. The Attorney-General, John Vai? Bukkk, Ksq., com menced his argument by stating that his learned asso ciate (Mr. Cutting) had argued this case sj fully, so clearly, and with so much anility, that there was little left for him to bring to the notico of the court 1 and that, , therefore, he should confine himself to a very few points. At the same time he wished the court to notice that if he refrained from urging or pressing any ofthe points made j by Mr. Cutting, it was only because he did not wish to ; consumo the time of tho court by the repetition, and for no other cause; for he maintained and endorsed all the : Sints made and urged by his associate, and he did not :en>1 to yield tho smallest iota thereof. He would, therefore, begin his own argument at the end of the printed points. There was one party iu this case that seemed to have been greatly overlooked, and neglected, and that was "the I'eople of the State of New York." This is not an action brought by Mr. Connor against Mr. Warner. It is not so in form?it is not so in fart. It is a call on the purt of the people on tho defendant, who usurps tho office of Clerk of the Court ofCommou Pleas. He has no right to discharge tho duties of tliat offlco, and we call on lum to show his warrant. The presumption sot up that he is in under a colorable title, is cot applica ble here. This is not a case of that kind. All the pre sumptions are in favor of the people. It is not an action betweon two persons, but an information by the people. (See 4th Durrows, 21 IS, case of tho King vs.* Leigh ; and 15 Johnson. 388, case of the I'eople vs. the Utica Insur ance Company.) Here it is distinctly laid down that it is the duty of the party against whom tho information is laid, to show his clear title. (So alio in the case of Thompson vs. Taylor, 24 Wendell.) Here, so strictly was this held, that it was laid down that no matter what might lie the result of ull other issues, where there are several, if any one issue is found in favor of the leople, then judgment of oiuter must follow. The question arises, then, have they any greater power now, under the Revised Statutes to usurp an ofHce or oppose an in* formation, than they had at Common Law f They have not; and if they assume it, it should not bo allowed. The averment of Connor's right it mucin in the discretion of tho Attorney-General, and defendant has no right by statute to traverse it. (2nd llev. Stat. Mi, Sec. 30, 36, regulate the proceedings on informations. 3rd Rev. Stut 78*. the revisers give as a reason for their addition al provisions, t.iut they brinj; about tho same result as before, hut with greater formality.) Our information sets out that Andrew Warner (plff. in error) is an usurper; and we have a general averment at tho end, that James Conner is entitled to the office. Defendant could not traverse the averment in the same plea that sets up tho ti tle oi the relator. He cannot plead two pleus in these proceedings (See the case. People vs. Jones, 18 Wendell, GUI ) A party plead four pleas, and the Attorney Gene ral had them struck out?the statute allowing him to plead double, not applying to such a case. At common law he can have no authority to traverse this averment only so far as he necessarily traverses it by setting up his own. This plea of Warner's terminates at the 18th line ofthe tenth page ofthe Krror Book, and concludes with a verification ; the other portion, down to line 33, is the deuial of Conner, as clerk, Sic.; this, if it amounts to any thing, is a part of a plea of the general issue. Here would be a double termination, (if allowed ;) one end tri able before the Court of Krrors, and tho other triable be fore a jury. The People are plaintiffs in this proceeding, and Warner defendant. Suppose the judgment (ol the court below) stands, and (artlier proceedings are had un der tho statute to recover the fees received by Warner, could any part of this be read in evidence in a suit be tween Conner and Warner 7 It is an information by the People against Warner, and Warner has no earthly inte rest in Urn suit, oxcept whether he is ousted or not; and the a :t never contemplated turning the proceeding, by information, into a private suit. But there is a conclu sive answer to the suggestion, that tho judgment of the Supreme Court, in favor of Conner, should be reversed What should the plea be 7 (See Chitty's Pleadings, vol I, p4&79. Mr. Van Buren nlso referred to 9cases, 7 Cowan' >1, Donyckvs. Waterbury; 7 and UowlingHc Ryland, 210. j Briggs vs Cox.) An entiro plea must be good in the | whole, or it is bad altogether. The information has but I one count; the plea is to the whole information ; and the plea is demurred to. The judgment ofthe Court in form is one of ouster, as against Warner, and in favor of Con ner ; but in fact, the judgment of the Court is an over ruling of the plea. Suppose they could traverse a sin gle piece of the information in a single plea 7 If a deni al ol Conner's right is material, then, standing alone, it would be a sufficient plea. This will not be pretended. The plea must show title in the incumbent. Tho plea is bad for duplicity, and should be over-ruled on that ground. The demurrer admits nothing ; but says thnt your plea is not a good defence to the information. We demur to tho plea, because it is bad. The Court over rules it because it is bad ; and in so doing, pronounce the judgment the information calls for. The information stands undofended, and the Court could pronounce no other judgment, (2 Kev. Stat., p. 583, sec. 36, as to pica and damages, Ike.) There may tie question whether this judgment could he read in evidence, in a suit between these parties on subsequent proceedings. Warner does not deny that Conner is Clerk of the City and County of New Vork, except in such a way that we cannot take notice of it. Look at our averment of Con ner's right; Krror Book, page 0, line 34, " And the said George P. Barker, he." When defendant comes to tra- ] verses that, ho couples all these averments together. See 1 page 10 of Krror Book, " And the oaid defendant further says, that he doilies, Jtc., be.'' This is done in a way that could not he allowed on a plea. - There is no de nial?thoro is not intended to be any, that Conner is Clerk of the City and County of New Vork. He (War ner) groups together several allegations, and denies them in a lump. This is bad?it is not only duplicity, but triplicity. A* to the right of the Court to pass judg ment, we say that they have tho right, and were bound, on this record, to give judgment otousttr, and also judg ment in favor of Conner's right. Now as to the power of the Legislature to pass the Act of April 10th, 1843. We say that this act alters the body politic. Wo say ,that it was not passed by a two-third vote. We say that it should have been passod by a two-third vote. They object that we do not plead the charter. Wo aver that Couner is rightly entitled to the oftico of Clork of the city and county of New York. There is no issue taken ou that. , We refer to the chartcr as uroof. The apt was made public, and that made the charter public. (Mr. Van Bu ren here read the act.) How can this court take cogni sance of that act, and yet not take cognizanae of all those grant* ? How can you |know all those grant* and ,towers unless you go to the charter I 3.1 Bingham 459, ?ay* that where the city charter in referred to in a public act, the charter becomcs public. Is tho charter before (he court 7 We say the court are bound to take judicial aoticeof it. Tho statute says, tho charter shall be read from a book, lie. Does that mako it private ? Then the -levised Statutes are private ; for there is an express act ?vhicli savs that the Iter. Stat, shall be read from a book. But that (foes not make them private acts, ci Rev. Stat. 183, sec. 8, I-j.) But the law of l?32expressly makes the charter public. (See Kent's notes, 97.) The case cited from 3 Bingham 439, expressly decides that where a charter is referred to in a public act, it becomes public. Now, it is argued that the court does not know that this act of 1843 was a Majority Bill. But by the act of 184J relative to the mode of certifying two-third bills, it is leclared that a law shall be presumed as a majority bill unless collided to have passed by two-thirds. (Seecase :3d Wendell.) This very court there decided that they nust go and see the record, if necessary, to ascertain if it pasted by two-thirds ; and that you can't take iisue about the passage of a law, nul tut record cannot be pleaded in a statute. And wo may take the case of The i'eople vs. t'urdy, 4 Hill, 384?the law itself did not come up in the pleadings. He plead the charter : the Attorney General demur?.I ; and the court decided that the law of 1840 was unconstitutional; although it was not in issue at all in the pleading, lsay that this court must and do look to see if a law was passed constitutionally ; and it was so decided in the case under the General Banking Law (Warner vs. Beers)?and they then determined that it did not require a two third vote. In the case of The I'eople vs. Purdy, U Hill 34, the Supreme Court looked at the law to see if it passed by two-thirds. So they did in the very recent decision with regard to the constitu tionality of the General Banking Law. Now, then, if they look and see that this act of 1843 did not pass by a two-third vote, then comet the point, " Does it alter the corporation of the city 1 Most certainly it does. Co tell one of the Judges of the Court of Common fleas?" Sir, to day you may sit, but to-morrow you must take your hat and go out, for we are going to'ap point a clerk of the court." This would seem to be some what of an infringement of the charter. And Judge Bronson said (Varian's case, 9ftth Wendell,) that when you make a man a judge of a court, he can sit therein for all the purposes for which any judge can sit. Again, thesa>ing that the Clerk of the County shall not be Clerk of the Court of Common Pleat? here is also a vio lation oi the charter. For the charter of Gov. Dongan expressly say* that he shall be Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas. And the duties of that office constituted the main duties of that clerk. They argue that that Mayor's Court has been annihilated; that nothing of the original remains. Why, this court hat decided, again ana again, that that court, the Common Pleas aud Ses sions, still remain- So in the case of Varian, this court decided that the County Court still remains.? In the case of Purdy, the question was, had he a right to sit under the charter as against the law of 1840, in The Ceurt of Sessions f And if the Court of Sessions has j been abolished, the charter is of no use. But the orlgi- j nal thing remains. It has been alluded to again and i again. *ou might as well say that a chartered right to sit in the Park was lost because there has been an iron | railing put round,it or it has been ploughed over once or twice, or more. And we maintain that here, when you j tell an Alderman that he may sit part of the time, and not ! tit a part ol the time?it l? a clear violation of the charter. Wo submit, therefore, that an act has been pas- j sed, which takes away certain rights under the charter, i ?J. That it ought, therefore, to nave been passed by a : two-third vote. 3. That it was not passed by a two-third j vote. 4. And that it n, therefore, null and void. ; The caso of the People vs. Purdy, 4 Hill. 383, Is conclusive to show that this act required a two- j third vote. 1 come to the second printed point Does he come under that 9th section 1 If he does, then, , he could not be appointed by two or three judges. He must be appointed by the Court. If they can do that, then the Legislature can also make one man do all its j business. There is a plain distinction between the j power of a court, and the power of the judges of a court, i (see 19 Wendell, 97, 38, case of the I'eople vs. the | Albany rourt of Common Pleas.) Because these judges j can, underthat law of 1843, act any where?at any timo? , in vacation, or otherwise. And it does not help the mat ter to say " thet shall be deemed the Court." This is a bald evasion. To say that three judges may hold the Court, excludes nobody ; but to (five n power to three men to appoint a clerk, takes away chartered rights from the rest of the Judges. I com'n now to the llrst printed point: 'The Constitution makes the Clerks of Counties elective by the people. The Counsel on the other side admits that at that time he was Clerk of the Cotrt of Common Pleas ; and thet as Clerk of thu Common Pleas ho vai elected by tbe people. The Constitution made the office elective. What is an office ' It difl'ers from an employment, as those holding | it have a compulsory power over the business oftlie peo ple. (Mr. Van Buren here read the definition of an office from 3 Kent, 30-2, and < arthew's Reports, 478, tbe King vs. Burney.) In Great Britain this right to create offices , rests in the King, (Blackstone, -203,) and it has got to be ' part of that indefinable thing called the Constitution of i Great Britain. Mr. Vai* Burii* then adverted to the distinction be tween the power of the crown as to judicial functions, and as to creation of offlcos : of the latter, the King is the parent. The Judges are independent of the King; and subject to the Constitution of Great Britain,the King has > all power to confer office. He also referred to Mytton's case, 4 Coke, 32 ; here the office was incident to unother. Mytton was appointed Clerk, and the Sheriff afterwards appointed, claimed that the patent to Mutton was void, because the Clerkship was incident to his office and part of it. It was so adjudged, and the grant to Myttou de clared void. Surely a grant from the people in our writ ten Constitution should bo as iuviolable as a patent from the Crown. And it is hero objected that Conner came into the office of Clerk of the County after thlfc man (Warner) was appointed Clerk of the Court of Common I'leas by three of tiio Judges. The same was true in Mytton's case; and the objection was taken. I allude to this to rIiow that where an office is incidental to anothor the Legislature has no power to alter it in opposition to the Constitution?(Scrogg's case, 1 Dyer, 175, and "2d vol. of Salkiold, 438, Snow vs. Fireplace or Firebrand.) Par liament, it is true, might divide and distribute all offices. But this same power ot Parliament is next to omnipotent We have nothing like it here. It can change the line of succession to the Crown, as it has done : it can change the established religion of the land, as it has done in the time of the 8th Henry and his daughter Mary, and again Elizabeth, Sic. It is almost omnipotent. Mr. Va.s Burf.m, to show that the power of Parliament bears no particular analogy to the limited powers pos sessed by the Legislature of this State, cited from 1 Blackstoue, p. I Hi, also from 1 Blackstone, p. 321, ami here tho authorities cited show that attempts to take part of an office and make a new office thereof, were declared void, because the office was an entirety. Mr. Van Buren again read the Hth section, and asked?"What does this moan ? Is there a distinction between the office and the power, that you can take all its power and leave the mere title ? Mr. Brady contended that if you can touch it once, you cau take it all. And if in Great Britain these cases have been decided always in favor of the people's rights, surely it is not asking too much to ask this Court to respect the power which the people themselves have fiven, for the time being, to tneir delegated agents - do not ray that the Legislature have no control what ever over this officer?the County Clerk. 1 do not say that thoy may not compel him to perform quarantine when nocesxary ; 1 do not say that be shall not be taken up if he makes a noise in the street alter ten o'clock ai night; I do not say that the Court of Common l'iea might not be lbibid to sit in tlie dog days, if it should gen erate Asiatic Cholera. But you can only mako such ne cessary regulations in regard to him and bis office as po lice, health, or the indispensable enc's of governmeut le quire, and as do not conflict with the Constitution. But this act of 1943 clearly takes away the constitutional powers of this office, and it says he shall not exeicixe them. The point, I believe, has been given up, about the law of 1843 creating a new office. It has been ai gue<i that the County Clerk must hold his office subject to the progressive reforms of society. Certainly. in such inci dental matters as conflict with no specific'duty which the people have reserved to themselves. The constitution is the paramount law of the land. So matter wiiethei duties are incidental or principal, if the Constituti.ii makes him elective who is t? uischargo them, the Legis lature cannot alter it. Neither the progress oi society, nor the wishes of the bar, or of courts, can override the Constitution. There lias been a sort of appendix ,lttach.ed to "Tlu' Look, by the opposite side, which p.eicnd. o .tow th duties and fees ol thu office. and he. n ?

But in looking over this list of vanous dutie. he question arises,If you can lake away ?'e d^" ?0? Common I'leas Clerkship, which ol lhem ca i >ou no take? There is not one. And th.?, therefore i.?i d.rea interference by the Legislature with the r?hU ol tne people, who have said tRat all the dutie. of that Clerk we have, and wUl have reserved for our elected Mrv.nt. On the same principle, you may take the otttc > you may, on the same ground, take awa> his dutie , by one, until you strip him of the whoieofthe ^ leave to the people the naked oliice to elect nim io, whilst every one of his duties are to bo pe wer oer&ons over ' whom the people have mnv Or take his honor the Chancellor lor instance. . to the same way strip him of many Xsure whi" t may l.e allowed to enter decrees;1,1 ,,^11 becommitted partitions, specific performance, kc.,, ?h ,orce be to the Supreme Court, and proceeding* in had before the County Court.

And thus we might ha>ete Chancel I tor appointed by the (Governor,whilst all his dutie. were di.charged by a new man, elected every ire } the people. So with the Supremo Court.

When the people say we will participate in these dutie., and adopt a w"tten lo stitution to that effeet, it is an act of revolution to stni them of the right, thu. secured.

Narrative of tlie Proceeding* of the Farmers' Clab. The repository cf the American Institute, yesterday, did not present aa numerous an assemblage of the members of the " Farmers' Club," as we are accus tomed to witness on similar stated occasions. There were, however, sufficient present to spin oat the first hour in desultory conversation, and the remaining two in a general and miscellaneous dialogue upon " the best mode of constructing farm wagons and carts, and harnessing for easy draft, and the preser vation of fruit trees, and the best mode of planting und cultivating corn." Such a heterogeneous mass of subjects, any one of which would have given a full scope to the oratorical privileges of the mobt eru dite on the various topics, were dashed into with the spirit peculiar to the Club, and continued with an en thusiasm that none can feel but farmers. Col. Clark tilled the chuir, with hisaccustomed urbanity, and it is needless to add^that Mr.Meigs, the Record ing Seoretary, fulfilled his duties with corresponding dignity. A communication was read on the posi tive virtues of Guatio, as highly favorable to gardens, ft was to be administered to the trees and the shrubs in the following proportions: One pint of guano to four gallons of blood-warm water, and it possessed a virtue far beyond the obsolete practice of terrify ing birds of prey, r>y all sorts of outlandish and frightful figures formally festooned round the crops. It was proved by the evidence of a medicial gentleman pre sent, that it operated as an emetic upon crows, and having once imbibed the nauseous com|>ound, they never revisited their former lunching places .nn cheap ordinaries. Mr. Meigs read his translations from the latest Parisian Horticultural Review, on the cultivation of the various species of Palm or Dates. Also, one up on the cultivation of the Potato from Madagascar; coal tar, ashes and guano, were urged upon the at tention of the Club, as nearly equal to galvanizing in the preservation of grapes. A letter was read from Dr. Marshall, U. S. S , Portsmouth, on the virtues ' of the flax-plant of New Zealand, of which he pro mised to bring home a specimen. Then were read two invitations for a delagation of the Club to visit the Westchetter Horticultural Society, yesterday, and also at Flushing to-day. Mineral tar was de cided upon as valuable in preserving posts. The most important movement of the day was a motion t<> collect, condense and revise, the whole pro | ceedings of the Farmers' Club, in one volume of two hundred pages?price lilty cents?for the be nefit of nations yet unborn, and posterity iu gene ral, to be edited by Mr. Hrown. I' was gener ally surmised that under the management of Mr. Brown, this work will ruin the sale of ell similar pro ductions, from Anson's Voyages to "VViike's N? na tive?from Adam's Manual ol Gardening to 1 hor 1 burn's Essays on Pvonis and Pinks. Under these | encouraging prospects the price was raif-ed to 75 I cents. This subject was followed by a recommen lation of hard soap instead of soft soap for shaving , ihe vermin from gooseberry buohes?an invention 1 tiiat, in the process of describing, caused the suges I if the sod to rub their chins Alter a tew more di j '^ressioiis, "the cultivation of coin" brought L*r. j Field to lead the subject This gentleman jiosbesses I much practical knowledge, and clearly proved that there is only one system to he observed?to spread the manure in broad cast, plough and harrow, plant the corn, apply the cultivatoi?if the ground is haid pass the cultivator twice?then hoe. In two acres he got more produce than he did from ten acres in the old fashioned way of ploughing, and thereby cutting the fibres and producing deposits for rain.? Dr Field stated the fact that on 10 acres in the old fashion system he only raised 100 bushels of shelled corn ; and that by the present mode, the following year, upon the same ouantity of ground, he raised 60 bushels to the acre, lie advocates the plan of cutting the steins close to the soil, instead of topping. Dr. Underhill fully bore out Dr. Field in his system, from practical experience,recommending sana to be free ly used as a support to the stem, and also as a coat ing. He obtained 85 bushels of shelled corn to the acre by the application of sand. These two gentle men illustrated their experiments in farming to the conviction of all present, except those who consider any modern improvement an innovation upon i he " more majorvm" system of the antediluvians. It is to be reuretted, for the benefit of the farming community, that such notices should be abridged.
