NEW YORK HERALD New York, Wednesday. October 1, 1845. Foreign news. The Cambria, the steamer remarkable for apeei and abolition riots, is now in her twelfth day. New Disclosures In the Politics of the Yai Buren Democracy? Mackenzie Convlctcc of Gross and Hallcloits Falsehood and blander. To-morrow, we will resume our political history of that eventlul epoeh in the life of Van Burenism, between the years 1824 and 1834, and re-publish the letters written by Martin Van Buren, Jesse Hoyf, and ourself, during that period, which have been given in Mackenzie's pamphlet. These epistles we will give in regular chronological order, Mackenzie having blunderingly printed tlieni in a confused and disconnected manner, without any method or ar rangement, or attention to dates. Our comments will embrace some exceedingly interesting disclo sures and developments. During the whole period of our connection with the politicians of this State, we kept a diary, which records many most amus ing scenes, and is peculiarly rich in revelations of political intrigue?the tricks of party leaders?and the philosophy of faction. By the aid of this diary we will be enabled to give some of the most inter esting, curious, and attractive chapters of contem poraneous history, that ever were written. Together with the correspondence of Martin Van Buren and Jesse Hoyt, which has been published by Mackenzie, we will give to the world four letters written to us by Mr. Jesse Hoyt, which will be found highly interesting, very honorable to Mr. Hoyt, and entirely exculpatory of our character and reputation from the impudent and malicious charges attempted to be brought against us by Mackenzie.? We had no locks to break?no deal chests to force open?no sacred rights of private property to violate, in order to obtain these letters. We found them yesterday, amongst our private papers and journals, and in one of them we are furnished, most opportunely, with the means oj at once vindicating our character from gross and s.anderous aspersions, and convicting this Mac kenzie of a most malignant and unprincipled at tempt to blacken our reputation. The postscript of this remarkable letter, which is dated the 16th of August, 1833, and addressed to me at Philadel phia, is as follows:?''The Branch Bank sent their 'card' to-day to the Banks in Wall street for $-200,000 specie." This was the letter to which 1 wrote tne reply published amongst the other letters with my signature in Mackenzie's pamphlet, the postscript of which is thus given in that publication?"The $200 in specie I'll put into my big gun, and give the U. S. Bank and stock-jobbers a broadside. I wish yon would let mc know any other U. S. Bank movements in your city. This is the battle ground of Bank contests?here is the field of Waterloo. New York is now only the Pyrennees." Was ever a clearer case of wilful and malicious misrepresen tation than is thus discovered in the construction put upon the postscript of my letter by Mac kenzie! It may possibly have been that by mistake 1 wrote "$200" instead of "$200,000," but the know ledge now possessed of the character of Mackenzie does not at all militate against the suspicion that he may have wilfully erased the ciphers. At all events whatever way that may be?it is quite immaterial ho far as the original facts of the case are concern ed?our character and reputation are thus triumph antly vindicated. It is made clear as noon-day that the insinuation that we had received "a brib*," which Mackenzie impudently puts forth, is a foul and baseless slander. We never received one farthing from any of tflose politicians with whom we were connected during that period. It is very true we desired a loan of $2,500, and solicited the aid of Mr. Hoyt in procuring it for us. But even that we did not get. We did obtain the loan, but it wa.- from friends not connected with either of the political parties, and the sum was in due time repaid with interest. This is but a sample of the manner in which we will drag to the light of day all the hidden things of darkness connected with these Mackenzie de velopments, and by the simple statement of facts every one of which we can substantiate, repel the assaults made upon our reputation during our con nection with the leading politicians of the democra tic party, between 182 f and 1831-a stirring and re markably eventful period of ten years. So far as we are concerned, it must be pure malice on the [?art of Mackenzie which prompts his attacks and ac tuates his conduct. Since his arrival in this city we have always been ready to serve him when we considered his purposes and motives to be good. The pains which he takes to falsify and misrepre sent the letters which he publishes, and to excite pre ludices against us, must be the pure mal lignity of the man. This much to-day by way of anticipation. In to morrow's paper we shall proceed with a deliberate careful, and historical review of the whole subject' including the highly interesting and important cor respondence ol Mr. Hovt, which we have just brought to light, and which will materially aid us in our labors. The Episcopal Convention.?At last, this Con vention has closed its stormy sessions, leaving mat ters very much as they were belore it commenced its proceedings?its solemn prayers?its pious exhor. tations?its fiery speeches?its violent jiersonalities ?its unseemly ebulitions of ill-nature and spleen, and all manner of uncharitableness. What a strange g|>ectacle has the whole scene,frombeginningtoend, presented! How unlike a convocation of the fol* lowers of the Prince of Peace! How the angels must have sighed and wept as they looked upon the proceedings in that church, dedicated with all the pomp and solemnity of ecclesiastical form and cere mony to St. John?the meek disciple whom Jesus loved ! Afier all,the question of salary remains undisposed of, and it is not at all unlikely that the lawyeis may have a chance to step in and get fine plucking and fleecing out of the business. Alas! alas! the wicked inen who trade in politics, do not engross all the intrigue, plotting, squabbling, selfishness, and worldly nundedness that make earth like the habita tion of unclean spirits. The clergy share too large ly these unholy attributes. When shall we have a better priesthood 1 Not, we fear, till the millemum, or unless th?- idea we once heard a good old Presby byterian clergyman suggest be realized?that " the ministers of the gospel be let down from heaven every Sabbath morn, and taken up again punctually every Sabbath afternoon." Appropriate Appointment ?One of the most discreet appointments made by the present admin istration, has been that of Mr. O'Sullivan, of the iVete*, as bearer of despatches to England. He is a very amiable young man, and has now obtained t n employment exactly suited to his abilities ? When the government wanted to communicate with their agents at London, and note down what they had to say, and then tied it up with red tape, and put it into Mr. O'Sullivan's pocket, they did perfect ly right, He will take care of the package, and deliver it savely. But he could not have carried the intelligence in any other way. You philosophers ?re rather indifferent hands in any practical, com mon sense business But then they " do a power of thinking," as the Irishman says in the farce. Impudence.?The important news from Mexico to the 13th ult., which we gave exclusively in the Herald of yesterday, and which was brought by the Princeton to Pensacola, is characterized in the Ex Jim* as a hoax. The news we published was received by the regular mail from Pensacola and we sent the news all over the east, north and west, thirty-six hours ahead of our contemporaries. This fact ac counts for the chagrin and falsehoods of the Exprtti. If we manufacture news in this office, our amiable friend Booby Brooks ought not rely so much upon 'he Htm Id for late intelligence. Emigration to Oregon anii California?Po licy of the United States Government.? We'have received intelligence Irom Washington relative to the progress ol preparation! for the : j formation of an extensive emigration to California. Several similar expeditions are preparing in the * I great Atlantic cities, and also in the Western and j South Western States. The accounts which have i i been communicated by the pioneers in this great l movement, have been so encouraging?have stimu I ! lated to such a degree the spirit of enterprise?and j the triumphant success of Texas annexation has f produced such a wide-spread moral effect in the same direction, that an immense impetus has been given to the advancing tide of emigration to Califor nia and Oregon, and in less than two years,we have not the slightest doubt, these fertile and attractive . regions will be occupied by many thousands of the most ^energetic and determined of the American j people. In another column of our paper to-day, we give an interesting description of a portion of the journey j to Oregon. Following the course of the Nebraska j or Platte River, one of the principal tributaries of | the Missouri, the traveller reaches near its source the great South Pass in the Rocky Mountains?a valley neurly twenty uiiles wide, and aflording ample facilities of communication, by means of railroads, between the extensive regions that lie beyond the United States. In the Oregon Terri tory the American population already numbers nine thousand; of which two thousand are able-bodied men, expert in the use of the rifle, and capable of immediate organization into a strong military force. They have organized a government, and in tend sending a delegate to the United States Con gress. The chief settlement is Oregon city, situated in Willamette Valley, and not far distant from Fort Vancouver. Linton is another American settlement, finely located and rapidly increasing. The British population is about five thousand, consisting chiefly of trappers and traders, with a considerable num ber of Indians, connected with the Hudson's Bay Company, and having a sort of government under the control of the Canadian laws. But the British population is by no means equal in strength to the American, and the latter is even now able to drive the former out of the country, unless they were as sisted by a force from England, which it is not at all likely they would obtain. Upper California, however, it would appear has become the favorite destination of great numbers of those hardy adventurers who are seeking their for tunes in these regions. The country in the neigh borhood of San Francisco?destined to be one of the greatest sea ports in the world?is described as extremely fertile and the climate is remarkably agreeable and salubrious. The broad and smiling plains, watered by the Sacramento river, are attract ing much of the emigration that is proceed ing to the shores of the Pacific. The po pulation at present consists of about four thousand Indians?one thousand Spaniards? and five hundred Americans. But several large expeditions to California are now preparing to start from various points in the United States, and lhe probability is, that that territory will be still more rapidly filled up with Americans than Texas was ; and that, as soon as they be strong enough, they will at once assert their independence, and seek admission to this confederacy. It is proper to observe that several of these associations of emi grants have applied to the British minister at Wash ington for official sanction and concurrence, and others have made similar applications to the Ame rican government, but both declared off, and decide that the emigrations should proceed upon their own ( hook. These expeditions and this great movement only commenced with the revolution and annexation oj Texas. The movement will now go on with vastly accelerated rapidity and strength. It ls'connected with all political movements in this country, and if the government attempt to impede its progress in 1 any way, the party at present in power will be very quickly deposed. The annexation of California and Oregon will now be the great question in our politi. cal contests, and the President must show some dis position in relation to it in his Message, or very soon after the opening of Congress, if he desires to avoid a fatal collision with the popular impulses of the age and the country. As for any European interference, ' it is laughed at by a people, now numbering nearly ' twenty-five millioss, and jKissessing all the riches? j power and resources of a mighty continent. Canada ?The fall trade is going on more briskly than any other thing in Canada now?the papers are full of dry goods advertisements; but contain no news. From the middle of September to the latter part of October, nine-tenths of the imported fal goods are sold, and while this is going on, the ut most bustle and activity prevail in the Canada ports. Auctioneers are there important characters, and have more to say in what is going on than all others. There has been an increase of 175 arrivals from 6ea this year over last. Up to Sept. 25th, there had arrived, by the St. Lawrence, 184 general cargoes, of which about 125 were for Montreal. The total number of vessels arrived this year, is 1,294. and the total number cleared from the port of Quebec, in cluding 35 from Montreal, is 1,138. Several improvements are taking place in Mon treal, as well through the attention given to the sub ject by the Common Council as by private enter prise. During the last ten years, property has re markably increased in value, and nothing in the shape of investment has been more profitable than house-building. We accordingly observe that many elegant edifices are everywhere going up, particular ly in Great St. James street. This city must be com pletely transformed in the course of a few years. Lord Cathcart, the Commander of the Forces in Canada, had lately returned from a tour of inspec tion in the western part of the province. The mili tary establishments in Canada is kept in a state of unsurpassed efficiency. Accounts from the interior represent the farmers as quite on the alert to sell their wheat, the great de. mand for it having brought up the price to a dollar, and in some places more This is better encour agement than they have been lately accustomed to. There will be a large quantity of wheat and flour shipped to England this season, and freights are ex. pected to be very high in the shipping ports; in deed, it is likely there will not be a sufficiency of vessels to meet the demand for freights Politics are quite neglected for the present; hardly a word of allusion to public local matters are made by the papers This may not last long, as the famous Pa pineau is on his way back to his old haunts. Will he be able to get up another fracas ? Historical Fact.?A contemporary has made the discovery that the medal which Com. Elliott eaused to be struck in honor of Cooper, was of block tin. The discovery, however, had been made before by the Rhode Island Historical fSociety, as may be seen by their vote. Had the gallant Com modore been aware of the peculiarities of the His torical Society, he would have, perhaps, offered thu medal in some form more valuable. Oi.k Rum-?This great mae$trn gives a farewell concert at the Tabernacle, on Thursday evening next. He will play several original pieces, amongst them his " P arewell to America"?a composition of great originality and genius. He will be assisted by Miss Northall. Few artists have ever visited these shores who have succeeded in gaining so many warm friends as Ole Bull. His farewull con cert will be a bumper indeed. Health at the South.?Our dates from New Orleans are to the 22d, and Mobile to the 23d inst. Those cities were ;ierfectly free from the yellow fever, and were remarkably healthy. The South lias not, this year, been visited by any epidemic. Mr. Brough's Benefit ? Mr. Brough takes his benefit at the Park to-night. Miss Delcy plays in "Cinderella." A crowded house will welcome her back, on her recovery from her late indisposition. POSTSCRIPT. MENTENCK OF "BIG THIINDEE." We are indebted to the kindness of an officer of the steamer South America, which arrived at halt past two this morning trem Hudson, for the follow ing lerter Hudson, Sept. 30, 18J5. Before the time arrived tor the iwssing of sen tence on Dr. Boughton, or Big Thunder, the Court Room was thronged with an immense crowd of both ladies and'gentlemen. Atu quarter before two Judge Edmonds called the Court to order. The prisoner, Boughton, was then brought in, and ordered to stand up and say "why sentence should not be passed upon him 1"? Boughton arose, and in a low tone stated that he wished tor a tew duys lenity, in order that he might see his wife and settle his family affairs, which re quest was finally complied with. The Judgs then addressed the prisoner at some length, and concluded by pronouncing his sentence to be "con fintment in the Clinton County State Prison during the term of his natural life f" Theatricals. Park Theatre.?A very excellent, though not a crowded house, witnessed last night the performance, for the first time for many years in this city, of Otway's tragedy of " Venice Preserved." In the days when Kerable and Young, with Miss O'Neil as the heroine, ap peared in this play, it was eminently popular, more, however, from the talent concentrated than from its own intrinsic merits. has seldom been produced, and, in fact, now ranks amongst the almost forgotten " blood and murder" productions of a past era in dramatic litera ture. Yet the parts of "Pierre." " Jaffier" and " Belvi dera," afford ample scope for the display of histrionic genius, and on this occasion the tragedy was performed in a manner entirely creditable to the artists who filled those parts. Bland's " Jaffier" was one of the best things in which we have vet seen him?well conceived and carried out with good taste and judgment. Mrs. Bland sustained the very difficult part of " Belvidera" with a nd great deal of truthfulness and energy. The scene with " Jaffier" where, by her winning tenderness, she com pels him to abandon his deadly purpose, was character ized by a pathos, so natural and thruling as to draw tears from many eyes ; and in tho last act. where her reason gives way beneath the accumulated load of misery and despair, her acting bore throughout tho impress of the highest order of genius and skill. On the fall of the curtain Mrs. Bland was called out. Aft-r tho tragedy, the " Double Cracovionne" was danced with much grace by the Misses Vallee. The comedy of the " Four Sisters," in which the lively little Mrs. Skerritt made her first eppeaiance this season, con cluded the entertainments of the evening. To-night Miss Delcy, in Cinderella, on occasion of Brough's benefit. Bowery Theatre.?Last evening Messrs. Cony and Blanc hard, with their wonderful dogs, ma le their second appearance at the Bowery, before another crowded house. The sagacity and tractability of the dog has long been a subject of admiration among naturalists. All who desire a proof of the strength of these traits, will do well to visit the Bowery during the engagements of Messrs Cony and Blanchard. The fidelity, attachment, and cun. ning of tho dog are all beautifully portrayed by these noble animals. Messrs. Cony and'Blanchard sustained theircharacters with greet force and beanty. They performed last night in the drama of the " High land Drover," previous to which the play of " Ugolino' was performed, and the evening closed with the grund national drama of the " Black Rangers." To-night we have a strong bill. " Damon and Pythias," with Mr. Scott as Damon, the " Highland Drover," and the " Black Ran. gore." Castle Garden.?The burlesque Opera Company still continue to draw full houses of delighted audiences.? Last night they presented " Buy-I-Dare,"a burlesque up. on AubeCs La Bayadere. This is certainly one of the most pleasing performances in the city, and one at which the citizen or stranger may while away an evening great ly to his satisfaction. To-night we have a burlesque on the "Postillion." Niblo's Garden.?The performance of the "Honey, moon," last night, drew together a large and fashionable auditory, anxious to witness Mrs. Mowatt's personation of the character of Juliana, supported by Crisp's Crania. Mrs. Mowatt's acting, throughout the performance, wa, highly creditable, as she fully sustained the high reputa tation she has alroady earned, shswing she possesses a versitality ol talent which is calculated to insure her a high place, either in the comic or tragic walks in the arduous line of profession which she has selected for*' herself. Mrs. M. is now before a New Vork public suf ficiently long to enable the most rigid critic to pronounce upon her claims to popular favor upon the stage ; and, though as yet comparatively a novice in her profession, she has won her way upon popular approbation by her successful efforts upon the stage, which will insure her success in the brilliant career which lies before her.? Crisp's -Iranza was a respectable piece of acting. Wal cott's Rolando was also well sustained. The entire per formance passed off in a manner highly creditable to the company. Palmo's?"Picayune Butler" and all hie friends muit have "come to town" and visited Palmo's Opera House last night. The Ethiopians continue to draw crowded houses, and well they deserve to, for a company of sweeter singers has not blessed the ears of our citizen8 for many a day They have opened a new budget of songs and glees this week. The Swiss Bell Ringers gave five concerts in Boston last week at the Melodeon, which was crowded on each night they played. Indeed, so great a rush took place on Friday and Saturday evenings, that many hundreds of Eeople were unable to obtain admission, although the uilding will contain upwards of twelve hundred per sons seated. It is said they cleared upwards of $1600 in the five nights. They have gone to Lowell for two nights, and after playing a farewell concert in Boston, will re turn to this city to bid the New Yorkers adieu previous to their departure for the South and Mexico, which tour will occupy them at least a year. They will then return to this city and embark for their grand European tour. This band has travelled upwards of 17,000 miles, and fiven 230 concerts since their arrival in this country, in eptember of last year. Their success has equalled their enteprise and industry. Sporting Intelligence. Trottino over the Centrf.ville Track Yesterday. ?The Sweepstakes was won by Fanny Wright, making the best three in five. Tom Moore was distanced in the first heat. Time, averaging 2m. 40s. to 2m. 55s. The Match.?The'first heat was won by Henry Clay? a squabble, as was anticipated, took place and the Judges gave no decision. The wagon match did not come off in consequence* principally, of the late hour at which the other sport ter minuted. Pedestrianism and Hurdle Race at the Canton Course, Baltimore.?We are authorised to say that these affairs are postponed until about the first of No vember next. Theatricals.?The drama is at present in a high, ly prosperous state in this country. The success of the Keans has been quite overwhelming. In this city, their engagement was one of the most profita ble that has ever been fulfilled here. At Philadel phia they have been equally successful. They are at present in Baltimore. Here all the theatres are enjoying the full sunshine of prosperity. The Park?the Bowery?Nihlo's? the Chatham and Olympic arc all crowded nightly. There is indeed a perfect furor for theatrical amuse ments No flourishes the legitimate drama. The Musical drama has also ex|>erienced a remark able revival. Miss Delcy's debut at the Park has com menced a new and brilliantera in Knglish Opera here Her success has been most triumphant. Templeton, : now here, intends to appear in concerts, but it is very doubtful how he will succeed. The attempts made to revive the Italian <)pera have failed, and now quite disgusted with the squabbles of the Ita lian artists, and the repeated failures of the dilletan ti committee-men, the lovers of musical science and opera appear to be all crowding to the support of Miss Delcy at the Park. Thus, then, we go. The managers are filling iheir coffers?actors are reaping a copious harveat?our fair prima dontui Miss llelcy, is in the zenith of |?opu larity?theatrical taste is reviving-musical taste is re. vtving?the drama lifts up her head with rejoicing? Texas has been annexed?money is plenty?peace and prosperity every where smile ii|>on us?and Bro ther Jonathan feels himsell more than ever to be the happiesfc most sensible, and biggest fellow in all creation. For Et Rorit.?Packet shijn Cambridge, Captain Barstow, lor Liver|x>ol; Mediator, Captain Chad wick, for London, and St. Nicholas, Captain Pell, for Havre, sails to-day at noon. Ship Hartford ?This new ship, now loading nt the fool of Maiden Lane.and designed for one of the Savannah packets, is most deservedly attracting much attentmn As a southern packet, she is cer tainly superior in every res|?ect to any yet placed upon that line, and, doubtless, our southern friends will be pleased to know that she equals many of the London find Liverpool traders, both in accommoda tions and beauty of structure. E,piarii|iai vuiiaciiuun?sum IJny, Alter morning services war* concluded, the Secre tary read the minutea of vesterday, which were approved The Preaident called the houae to order, I ami said that the unfinished buaineaa of yerterday would | be taken up. Mr. l'oM?Toca read an application from an aged cler gyman in the western part of the State, to be put on the lilt of aged and inlirm clergymen, which waa referred to the trusteea of thia fund for aged and infirm clergy men. Hamilton Fiah submitted a resolution to alter the can one, limiting the number of delegates from each church to one clerical and one lay delegate. And on motion, the subject was laid over. The Secretary then read the aubstitute which he proposed yesterday to the amendment of Judge Oakley, of the loth canon of the church, which is as follows:? " Jieaolved, That thia Convention, without expressing uny opinion on the legal and canonical questions grow ing out of the sentence pronounced by the Court ot Bish ops on Bishop Onderdonk, (which sentence they hold to he valid until declured ottierwise by some competent tribunal) look with confidence to the General Conven tion, at its next session, for the adoption of measures which shall effectually relieve tho diocese of New York in its present emergency." Doctor Wainwbioht then oti'ered an amendment to the amendment of the Secretary, by striking out all after the word resolved, and inserting? " Whereas this Convention, with bitter sorrow, for the exigency which renders necessary the expression of such convictions, and in full recognition of the inde pendent responsibility of the Bishop for any course of action he may see fit to adopt, does entertain tho solemn belief that the effect of the trial and sentence of the Right Rev. B. T. Onderdonk, has been and it now such us would render injurious to the church in this diocese any measures which might tend to his resumption of this olHce of its Bishop and the eacred functions thereto pertaining, but inasmuch as the conecientioue opinions and feelings of this Convention render at present imprac ticable the expression of this conviction in a formal reso lution, therefore " Resolved, That the whole question of the relations of Bishop B. T. Onderdonk to this diocese be referred to the decision of the General Convention. Mr. Wainwrioht prefaced his resolution by a few re marks. He wished to have the ground which he occu pied known to his friends, us one of them asked him last evening, with some significancy, how lie stood on the subject. He then spoke ol' the meekness and submission which has characterized the Bishop since the sentence, having frequently seen him in his private capacity since, lie never heard tiim utter or express an opinion concern ing those who had been instrumental in obtaining his conviction. He is not in favor of the immediate restora tion of the Bishop, but it is impossible to say what may intervene between this time and the meeting of the next General Convention ; and looking to the present state of the diocese, if his suspension were drawn, he would be ready to receive him ; but, notwithstanding, he felt him self called upon to express his present feelings. Rev. Dr. Whitehousk took tne floor, and said, that the resolution stands in the shapeofa moral resolution,and he hoped and prayed its adoption. Now is the time lor such a resolution to be passed, and to escape from the position in which we are unfortunately placed; and besides, this resolution is calculated to assuage all bitter feelings on the subject. Dr. McVicrar yields to no man in his ardent desire to see the matter settled in a manner that will unite all hearts, but he cannot vote for the resolution in question, because it is contradictory and inconsistent in itself. The resolution says we cannot express an opinion, while the preamble does forcibly express one. We are here legis lators. If it is within our power to propose a remedy lor the present case, let us do so; but if it is beyond our pow er, let the subject go to a higher tribunal. He concluded by saying lie coulnnot vote lor the resolution. Mr. James Munrox, a lay delegate from Harlem, con gratulated the Convention that, after all the discussion which had taken place on the canons, there was a ques tion of the main point being settled. He hoped that a moral resolution would be taken by the Conveution on the subject. He said, that it this resolution passes, the Bi snoii is entitled to his full salary until the question be fnially disposed of by the General Convention. Mr. Jay said that he would not refuse to co-opeiate in any measures, that lie conscientiously thought would proYe for the welfare oi the church ; hut on this question of the moral influence of the clergy on the world, he could make no sacrifices. They came here prepared to go with the majority, provided they did not pronose_any "lurch. measures of an injurious teudoncy to tho churcfi. They had wished to put it in the shape of a moral cause, but by the action of the majority in muzzling debate, they had been compelled to come to the canonical question. They had not been allowed to submit the naked ques tion, and they were compelled to move an amendment to one of the resolutions. The head of the diocese was suspended for immoralities that would disgrace a lay man, and yet, is it asked that such a man should be re stored I They had replied that such is not the case. He (Mr. Jay) would say, that in one quarter of the church, this man had been held up as a persecuted Bishop, and on.this account we leel ourselves bound to ask a public expression ol opinion on this subject. Ef forts had been made by religious journals, and printed sermons had been circulated, declaring that his restora tion would be a blessing to the diocese, and after such acts, would any (one say there was no cause to fear > Public opinion had been contemned in this house.? This is a fair subject for the opiuiou of the world, lie did not think that the punishment of Benjamin T. Onder donk was a cause for the diocese to clothe themselves in sackcloth and ashes. We are not called on so to do ; he was aniudividual case, and we might mourn with hiin, hut the diocese was not to be condemned becau?o one member fell off. The sin rested on the offending one. Illuam Kktchum next.addressed the meeting. He said ho thought tbey all agreed in one thing, that this was a council for the benefit of the church, to build up and comfortthoso who are members ol the diuceso. What is our actual state ! What is our duty towards our late diocesan ' Shall we crush him 1 I say no. 8haU we cover up his offences and seem to sympathize in his guilt? I say no to that also; but what shall we do? He is a private Christian, and as private Christians we shall sympathize with him and remember him with kindness ; we will relieve his embarrassments, and do all we can to open for him the gates of everlasting life. That is our privuteduty ; but acting iu our corporate character, we are not to speak for ourselves; we are Bpeak for the Holy Church, and in fhHt capacity we must assume a grave stand. All the committee have said, is true. He knew from his own experience, that all the institutions oi our church were paralyzed; and who lias brought it to that State ! Benjamin T. Onderdonk! An . now when we meet for the first time alter these trans actions, |shall we, as a church, not have one word of censure to say ? Individually we have no right, but as a coroorate we have. The tribunal under winch he was tried was as just as any in the world. The gen tleman from West Point had denounced public opinion; but as had boen said by the gentleman from Coopers town, this is an instance in which the voice of the world sustained the course of the tribunals; and does any one complain of such an expression.' The trial of the Bish op had beenjair, as he had labored twenty-one days ? and he might almost say nights. The result had not been complained of; and what authority was there on esrth to nullify the sentence? The gentleman here clos ed with an adilress to the revorend clergy, in which he begged them to consider the situation in which they placed themselves, viz: as a profession anxious to hide Benjamin T. Ouderdonk's faults. He referred to the cir cular that had been issued, and which recommended tliem to vote down all debate. He asked them whit they would think of any other legislative body assum ing such a stand? He asked them what they would say to their congregations when they returned ? Hon. John C. Spencer next addressed the chair. He said that if any doubts had previously existed in his mind, they had been removed by the speech of the gen tleman who spoke last. The gentleman had said that this was the first |council that had assembled Miice the sentence of the Bishop; and wore they to separate with out one word of censure I We had now, said Mr. Spen cer, arrived at the pith and marrow of this question; and it appeared to he summed up in the desire to rebuke the Bishop. Judge Duer here asked the chair if the subject under discussion was the resolution or the speech of the last gentleman. Mr. Srrwcr.a.?I ri?e to auk the chair Judge Duer.? I muat have the lloor. (Cries of order ! order!) I wiah to know if resolution* or apeeches ate to be discussed. The Chair decided that inaimuch as the speech re ferred to the resolution, that Mr. Spencer was in order. Mr. SrKBCER then proceeded, tie thought the gentleman had grown very fastidious on the subject of order all of a sudden, and went en in quite a lengthy speech, and by asking the Secretary to read all the tesolutions, to show that they were now called on to re-vote in the form of a preamble what they bad rejected in a resolu tion. lie disclaimed any authority in this Convention to rebuke the Bishop. He is suffering from his sentence ; and because we are the first Convention that has met since his trial, must we wrankla his wounds afresh 7 The gentleman spoke at great length in support ol his views, ami went over a great deal of the ground thai has heeu so plentifully ploughed up during this Conven tion. Col. Monroe arose to a question personal to himself Ho bad been utluded to by the last speaker, who was in the habit of keeping the lloor until his tongue is tired lie now called upon him to do him he justice to say whether, during all the session he had taken up more than fitteen minutes. J. C. Mpkmcer replied, that he did not allude to the gentleman in his remarks. Col. Mom roe again observed, that he ought not to ex pect, from all he knew, that an explanation would be given. Hon. Luther Biiadikh asked the attention of the house for a very few minutes, while he stated the reasons which inclined him in favor of the resolution. In com ing there he had nothing to do, nor did he then think it necessary to go back behind the judgments ot the Court ol Bishops. It was for liiin to enquire whether the re spondent before that Court was innocent or guilty, not to enquire whether its proceedings were constitutional or canonical I He took the naked fict of the judgment, which was alter a fair trial before his peeis, that respon dent was guilty and sentenced to suspension. That was an enduring lecord, and no amendment of alter lite could blot it out; no mantle that charity in the exercise of its heaven born attributes could u>.e, would be sulti cient to coyer and conceal it. That sentence would stand in all its withering influence on his usefulness ol life. He would leave the question of guilt to the tribu nals, and believing in his conscience that their sentence was right, it was lor that convention to declare its opi nion, that there might be 110 mistake about it. He de nied that having no jurisdiction deprived tliem ol the right of expressing an opinion. The church it was, and its members, who in the event of a restoration would leel interested in it, and, therefore, their voice was not to he stifled. The free expression of opinion was neces sary to the vindication of the principles and character ol the church, and that both were intimately connected with the present question. entertaining these opinions, lie would not and had not in any case shrunk from their honest and camlio expression ; hut in doing so he made these expressions altogether sepaiate from the question of guilt or innocence ; on that ho had the judgment ol tha 1 ourt, which governed his conduct helore the con vention. Kev. Mr. Wai.ton did not appear as the advocate of im morality, no' was he actuated by party feeling, and yet be Would solemnly say that he did not believe Bishop B. I Onderdonk their suspended diocesan guilty of Im morality or impurity. He respected the opinion* of others who differed fiom him, and claimed the same privilege They believed the Bishop guilty; he believed htm inno cent, snd therefore could not support the resolution. But e short time ago a minister 01 <Jod was accused in Massachusetts, end convicted by hit peer* ; he had no SKTR. hi* sense of innocence to luilun in leaving ?,Vrli t. And thi. man is now a mini.ter in Uiibop to hit cti rg . f man COuld not divest separate them , and the power^o.^ nen^ (h,m t0 folI ? w theexamule of the great head of the Church, and not XiJMrbLnrr??! addressed the M.embly very ulouuentlr He opposed the reaolution because it w an intended to pronounce upon the guilt of Bwh?P;t0 shut the door against any future reconciliation, lie r claimed all intention of bringing about that end, and those who disregarded the honest disclaimers of minis ters of Christ were reprehensible. He regretted that arguments had been addressed to their leeliegs, and that even denunciation had been resorted to to turn minis ters of Christ from their convictions. Mr. S. strongly advocated the avoidance of all extreme measures and opinions, and the cultivation of a spirit of charity and forgiveness, as they hoped to be themselves forgiven in such a spirit he would vote against the resolution. -Ur Wiii rr.tiorsa denied the position that, because tliey were a legislative body, they had no right to ex press an opinion without eating on it. He contended ?hat there were many cases on winch full and Iree ex pression of opiniou would be salutary, in making snown their views elsewhere. It was possible, for in stance that the Bishop might be ignorant of, or deceived oy false statements as to the feelings ol that body towards mm he might have whispered into his ears that there wTs u co. spTracv against him. To counteract this there wu no way so effectual as to express the sense ol the Convention openly and directly. . In this view the iramorsof the resolution acted, keeping in view the cul tivation of a spirit of unanimity aud conciliation, if that were possible. He would vote lor the resolution. (Cries of "question, question," and a good deal of noise.) Dr Wainwrioht was vary desirous to have the vote taken at once on the resolution, as he was compelled o isk leave of absence on account of domestic reasons. regretted nothing so much as the remarks called up on the deflate and he took the opportunity to say that it was erroneous and unjust to suppose that the resolution was intended to havo any influence on the mind ol the Bishop, or force him to resign. For his part, berepu,,. t?ii aiiph iltmitrns His hopes were that the whole suo Let would be left over tiM the next Convention, aliowiug the Bishop two years of preparation, ol penitence not knowing'ouUhat in the goLd of Hod a slate of things might ensue in which it would he held desira ble to lestore our suspended diocesan. '!? did Dot ex pect such a result, but he could, with all his heart say tiod grant it He wished none to voto for the resolution who could not do so in that spirit from the bottom ol his heart. He now called for the question to be taken by yTMxJww'-Mr. President, I have one word to say - (?? Question, question," from all parts of the Rev. Mr. Mkad.?I want to speak one word. (Oreat C?r^mDKNT-Will you hear the gentleman! ho only wants to say a word or two. I hope you will hear him. Member?1 move we adjourn. AbouUwenty persons here arose to speak, all toge they occupy woSld suffice for the explanation of the member who desires to be heard. Rev Mr Mead at last obtained a hearing, and laid that without entering into the question of guilt or innocence, he would be content with the decision ol the Court. He thought the intention of the resolution was to aggravate the blame, and cast fresh odium on the respondent. (Cry of order) was for abiding bv the decision ol he le gally constituted tribunals, and not for adding to the weight of their sentence. Let it go for what it is worth, it was for them, not us, to decide. Much had been said a'Mr Duis arose to order. He would respectfully re mind'the gentleman that on the eve of adjournment and with the question before the House, lie had asked leave to speak five minutes. (Agitation and cries of order.) Rev. Mr. Mkad-1 did not say 1 would speak only fivo minutes (fresh interruption.) It had been insinuated that the minority in that House had been carried away with 11 blind attachment to an individual; he denied that. There were other modes of accounting for the existenco ol two parties in that House. It would be remembered for the last two years the state of the diocese was not a settled o..e-that between them and their opponents, there were doctrinal differences which he behoved were at the bottom of proceedings since occurring. He be lieved but for those doctrinal differences, their relative position would not now be what it is, and that it was be cuuse the Bishop was regarded as the exponent of these differences; called fho Speakor to ordor (Cries of chaTchair-order -go on, Sic.) He thought it entirely improper and unjustifiablo for the gentleman toVharge upon those who differed with him such motives for their actions in relation to the suspended Bishop, lie had no right to impute malignity or malice to them, or sav that there were any such reasons as ho attributed lo^acting as they had done.

The house being called to order, Mr Spencer arose and said, that on consultation and conversation with gentlemen of all sides of the house, it had been agreed that there was no prospect of any re solution being carried regarding the matter tinder dis cussion; and that upon deliberation, it bad been agreed to enter into a compromise; and that he therefore moved to suspend all business, and make the following resolu That to removo all doubts as to the duty of the stand ing committee under the canons of this diocese, to pro vide for tiie performance ol those Kpiscopal acts, without which a church cannot be maintained? Unsolved, That the second section of the Xth canon of this diocese be amended as follows, by inserting after the words "in case of a vacancy in the Kpiscopate," in the first line, the following, " of the inability or disabili ty of the Bishop." On condition that it was carried, and that then the house adjourn sine dir. This would be a compromise of this resolution, which had already been laid upon the table. Chief Justice Jomes seconded the motion. Judge L)l*kh said that there was no doubt that this was the best plan, and thought the Convention would doubt less rutify the agreement, by immediately after adjourn ing. The question was then put and carried unanimously. A report of the Trustees of the Fund for Aged and In firm Clergymen was then heard, touching the case of an aged clergyman in distress, and confirmed. A Mkmhkr wished to suggest, that the Secretary do not enter the parochial reports in the journal this year. The followiug resolution was then offered and unani mously carried. Resolved, unanimously, That the thanks of this Con vention are <1 tic to the Rev. Dr. Creighton, for the digni fied, courteous, and Chiistianlike temper which has dis tinguished his conduct, in presiding over the delibera tions of this Convention. Dr. VVhi i khoi'sk then offered a resolution, which was cairied, to the effect that as there had been no Kpiscopal address, and no record had been kept of the names of the clergy who had deceased during the year, that a committee of three he appointed to collect the names of the same, and enter them on the journal. Rev. Mr. Smith and Dr. Lvxli. then spoke on the sub ject of the deceased clergy. Or Reid, of I'oughkeopsie, ind Dr. Miinor were mentionedVmong them. Dr I,yell said some hard things of the conduct of the Convention, j but was glad to see them all separate peacefutly ? he concluded his speech with a benediction on the whole of them. Dr. llrisHT thought Dr. I-yell was rather severe on the conduct of the Convention. The following resolution was then offered and car ried : ? Resolved, That the propositions submitted to'the Com mittee for the amendment of the ( onstitution, of the 4th article of the Constitution of the Church of this Diocese, he laid on the table and referred to the Dext Convention of this Diocese. Joiiv C. Sriivcra then moved an adjournment. Dr. Mi Vu-SAR proposed to enter the following resolu tion on the minutes, which was carried : ? This convention cannot close its long and anxious la iors, without some expression of its deep sense of the overwhelming mercy of Uod in guiding its deliberations to harmony and peace, and that they now unite in ear nest commendation of one to the other, to the blessing ol Ood and of the now afflicted Diocese, to the united pray ers of all its menibni s on all the appointed holydays of the Church. . _ _ , . . The minutes were then read ; and Dr. Creighton m-de an address of thanks to the Convention or their opinion of him, and was glad that, after the exciting discussions that had passed, that they had come peacefully togather If any thing in heat of debate -any thing harsh or unkind had been aaid, let it be forgotten, and hereafter meet in pence. The Chair Invited them to join with him in thanks. (florin in Kxcelsls was then sung prayers and a be nediction pronounced, and the meeting adjourned. Thus ended the Kpiscopal Convention. In closing our report of this Convention, we deem it not amiss to sum up precisely the results of all these de bates and set fmtli what they have done. The resolutions attached to the majority report of the committee of twenty that were appointed to consider the state of the diocese, and on these resolutions all the de hates have been founded. Resolved, That this convention accept the act ot in corporation passed by the legislature of this State at its last session, entitled, " An act to Incorporate the trus tees for the management and car* of tha fund for the support of the Episcopate for the diocese of New York," passed May 14, 1815, by a two third vote. Roselved. That the present trustees of the Episcopate Fund be authorized nod directed to transfer all the funds in their hands, both principal and interest, and all secu rities and other papera relating to the said funds, to the trustees named ia the said act of incorporation by theii corporate uame, to be received, had and held by them, in their corporate character. 9. (Payment of arreare to Bishop Onderdonk.) Unsolved, That the trustees of the Episcopate Fund be, und they are, hereby authorized and directed to set tle with the Right Rev. B. T. Onderdonk, for the arrears of salary due him, us llishop of this diocese, according to the engagements of the convention in 1430, and renewed in 1034, and again confirmed in 1444, upon the principle that he was entitled to the income of $?>.') ,<W0 at the rate of 7 per cent per uunum, to the 3d day of January, 1413, and to pay him the amount of the said uriears so ascer tained, without reference to any pay ineiits other than those made by the trustees of the said luud, out of any monies in their hands. I 3. (Standing Committee?its power and duties) Resolved, That in the circumstances cuusod by the suspension of the Right Rev. B. T. Onderdonk, as Bishop of this Diocese, the proceeding of tho Standing Commit tee, in inviting Bishops of other Dioceses to perform Episcopal acts for this Diocese, wore justified by the canons of the church and the exigency of the occasion, and were highly commendable : and that until effectual and permanent provisions be made lor the supply of epis copu | ervices, the S'.sn ling Committee should continue, in its own name and authority, to invite the performance of such episcopal acts, for or within the Diocese, as may be necessary, by Bishops of this church, and that tho ex pauses of such services shall bo paid out of the iucomo of the episcopal fund. That to remove all doubts as to the duty of the Stand i ing Committee under the canons of this Diocese, to pro vide for the performance of those Episcopal acts, without ; which a church cannot be maintained? Resolved, That the second section of the 10th canon of this Diocese be amended as follows : M| 1st. By inserting after Die words "in case of a vacan cy in the Episcopate," in the first line, the following, "of the inability, disability, or absence from the diocese of the Bishop " 3d. By adding the followlug at the end of the said sec i tion:? But in all cases where, in the opinion of the standing committee, acts of tho Episcopal office are necessary, for or within this diocese, daring a vacancy in the Epis 1 copute, or during the inability, disability, or absence from the diocese of the Bishop, tho standing committee I shall invite u Bishop of this cnurchto perforin such acts, the expense of which shall bo provided for by the con vention of the diocese. 4. (Assistant Bishop ) This convention being deeply sensible of the hazard ous condition of the diocese, and of the absolute neces sity of some effectual aud permanent provision being made tor the performance of Episcopal aits therein, Resolved, That the delegates from this Diocese, in the General Convention be desired to use all proper ef forts to obtain the enactment of such Canons by tho Ge neral < onvention as are adapted to the case of a sus pended Bishop in any Diocese, and will allow the elec tion of another, with full Episcopal authority in himself, and in no way dependent on the Bishop during his sus pension. 3. (Bishop Onderdonk, f-c .) Resolved, As the opinion of tho Convention, that tho sontenco of suspension pronounced hy tho Court of Bi shops, upon the Right ltev. Benjamin T. Onderdcrk, is to be deemed and taken as valid until declared otherwise by some competent tribunal,and should bo respected aud regarded accordingly. That although tlie'said Right Rev. B. T. Onderdonk is, during the continuance of the sentence of suspension, disqualified for the performance of every act of Episco pal authority, yet that he is in fact and in law the Bishop ot this dioceso, so that no Bishop could be ordained in his place. That the fund set apart by the resolutions of thio Convention of 1838, for the support of the Episco pate in this diocese, is a trust fund, applicable only to the support of the Episcopal office, and that so long as that office is filled, the incumbent has a just claim upon the income of said fund for his reasonable support. That, as under presont circumstances the said Right Rev. B. T. Onderdonk will not bo exposed to many ot the exponscs attending tho Episcopate, and as a portion of the said income wUl necessarily bo required to defray tho future expenses consequent upon tho performance of Episcopal acts in this Diocese, it is reasonable and just that such portion should bo reserved for those pur poses, as being strictly within the objects of the Trust. And the Trustees of tho Episcopate Fund are therefore, directed to pay over to the said Right Rev. B. T. Under Jonk, out of tho iuuome of the said fund, (excepting the portion thereof set apart for accumulation,) the sum of two thousand live hundred dollars, to comuianco from the 3d of January, 1443, annually, until other wise directed by the Convention of the Diocese of New York : ? And that out of the residue of the said iucomo. the said Trustees pay, on the order of the Standing Commit tee, the amount of -all expenses attending tiie per formance of Episcopal acts in this Diocese by Bishops who shall be invited by them to perform tho samu. Tho first, second, and part of the third resolutions were passed. On arriving ut the words?"That to re move " in the third, much discussion took place. It was proposed that the second section of the Xth canon of this Diocese shall bo altered by leaviug out tho words "or ahsenco from the Diocese" and inserting "or" before disability. This was lost, in consequence of not obtain ing a two-thirds vote. ?, The fourth resolution was then taken up, and both it and an amendment of Judge Oakley '? lost. Dr. Wain wrigbt offered a substitute, which was also lo-t Mr. Haiglit was about to otter another substitute, when, as reported last evening, Mr. J. C. Sponcer ottered to adopt tlu* amendment ol' the canon as a compromise, which s* a* t?kcn, and (ho mooting adjourn# J without ac,tiii? nt all on the first resolution or the fifth one. .. Thus Bishop Onderdonk has obtained his ariearagcs. the Church has power to call in Bishops from other dio ceses to perform the duties of this diocese?the canon has been amended?but the motion which would inter fere with his ever being again allowed to fulfil bis office is still unacted on; and remains an open question till the meeting of tho General Convention in lsl7. The ques tion of his salary, as contaiued in the 3th resolution, is also left without any action on it. Thus matters are left not much more advanced than they weru before the Convention. City Intelllgcncr. Thk Rodrkrv of Mr. Rowlf.v. ?The police htvc ex erted themselves with unusual energy to discover the roblier of Mr.Rowley. Vet,with being on the lookout night and day they have as yet discovered no clue to the real Criminal. There is an airof mystery hanging ever the whole of this affair. It appears that Southgate had ma nifested a great anxiety to get Mr. Rowley's vaiise, ami after giving him the peach while handing him into tlio cabin usked him if he should not attend to his baggage for him, evidently wishing to get his chock. Mr. Rowley, however, kept the check andjtill holds it. When Mr. How ley awoke he found his poCket-book, containing pa pers of no value to any one hut the owner, gone, while the check was safe. Mr. Southgate it seems acted not at all like a sensible rogue, lie ought, whon he had the opportunity, to have taken Mr. Rowley's check, which he had wished so much to get, and then he would hAve run no risk in getting Mr. Rowley's valise ; but instoad of that ho takes Mr. Rowley's papers, leaves the check and runs the risk of being prevented from taking Mr. Rowley's valise, or in fact being apprehended as a thief for taking it. They are inclined, from the clumsy man ner in which he went pbout his work, to believe that this is the first offence ot Mr. Southgate, and therefore not being known to the police, they will have hard woi k to catch him. ^ Our Streets.?At last, it seems that a plan has been submitted to the consideration of the < 01 porstion tor the improvement of our streets, which will be of practical benefit. It is to lay an iron track in the great thorough fares of the city for carts and omnibusses to ran on. Iron being the only substance which can stand the tritura tion occasioned by these heavy vehicles. We trust the Corporation will so far adopt the plan, so as to test its be nefits by an experiment, at least, on a small scale. Broadway Crossing*.?The flag crossings of Broad way are so slippery from mud, that it is really dangerous to attempt to cross them.
