Sketch of an Address Defend by Professor (Vines on the Leading Go vernments of Antiquity, with the Design of show ing that in none of them were the true principles of Ciuil L\berty understood. He commenced by saying that when the writings of Tititius and others mutually accuse each other of arrora, when the reality of Troy was called in doubt, and when there was a difference of 1300 years of the of Semirarnus, and whether Cyrus died in bat do or in his palace?when these ar? so doubtful, ?'/ho shall lilt the veil which hide those people, and those nations which exist only in song and table ?? We look at the conf used traditions of past ages of mankind as a troubled darkness, and if we can see but a germ of truth in our course, it appears but as a rushlight?like a green oasis in the desert, but too feeble to be of any use to us. The early history of all nations ?xcept one. the migration and actions of ditferent tribes, their taws and polity, their religion and forms, these all lie buried in the depths of obscu rity, Hnd as impenetrable as the leaves of the Sybe lina books. In the midet of this, how refreshing a scene to go back to the threshold of ages, of our first ?p.irents When we turn from confused and incredi ble fiction to the plain pure history oPMoses, we leel like the traveller, who travelling through the sterile desert, at length reaches some green oasis. Compar ing the writings of Moses with other writers,we are led to express "how goodly are thy tents, Oh Jacob!" . , . records ofNiaHy history are eloquently de scribed by Bryup^the faces die away and are soon lost in oblivion, bui the history of Moses is like nn object ueen through theglaas of the optician, clear, distinct and defined. When we look upon the hia r.ory of Assyria, we see nothingfbut n scene of in consistent nnd improbnble events,nnd chimeras dire, to the neglect of a chronological standard. Theold reC0.rV? time, now extant, are, unequivocally, those ? Moses. The laws which fie delivered to his cuntrymen, and throughout the subject it will be n?.y object to clear them from the mist of igno r*iice, ind the sneers of infidels and philosophers. oltaire calls Moses' institutes a detestable paliation of the institutes of Egypt?while Boliugbroke and t ollins have branded it with names as Dad. How tar these grave charges proceed from ignorance, or are founded upon good ground, will appear in the in ogress of our enquiries. It is an observation of a learned commentator on the laws of Moses, that ?,?\lv!8he8 *? v*-w them must be acquainted with the Hebrewf institutes. The Mosaic laws, coa 8 ?r5 r ^ a 'fmnant of ancient history, are worthy of oyr attention, but they constitute a foun tain irom v/bich men have drawn their best consti tutions ar,d their best civil and criminal laws; and as Aine'/ican citizens, as friends and supporters of ^ llbei?y? we be delighted, if not sur Pnfcr,d, ot the wonderful analogy between that system and ours, which was formed by the 6 ?rong heads and strong hearts, of our fathers ?we shall cease to smile at tne simplicity of the early colonists of New England, who proposed to govern themselves for a while with the Hebrew laws. We shall see that that government whs instituted for the benefit of the many and not of the few, and that the people had a hand in the making ofthe law; and that the life, liberty and pro l>eriy of the citizen could not be infringed upon without due process of law; that every citizens right to protection and every thing valuable in society and government reBts in the virtue of the people; we shall see all these pervade the Hebrew institutes as they do our own; and scarcely more than a glance will he sufficient to convince us that no where, except within the limits of Palestine, were to be found safeguards of liberty, and no people en joying government till we conte to the Jewish re public. From the earliest times man was governed by arbitrary power and despotic laws, at one time indulgent and at another severe. Through the vast regions of Central Asia, dynasty has succeeded dy nasty, and empire upon empire have fallen, but no change brought improvement upon the people. The King of Babylon held an annual auction for the sale ot handsome and beautiful women, and the money received was used as a fortune for those who had not personal charms to recommend them. Camby ws married his own sister, because his lawyers H.iid they could find no laws applying to the King of Persia to prevent it; and Nebuchadnezzar issued an order to have all the learned men in Babylon put to death, because they could not decipher a a ream which the monarch dreamed. I do not propose an analysis of ancient polity, as it would but .-stublif=h a position which nobody calls in ques tion. It, leaving the lands watered by the Tigris we will see a country less devoted to war?yet here, civil liberty had no existence. Ofthe despotism of kgypt, we need no other proof than those monu ments which rival the stability of the earth itself; where, but under a despotism, could the whole reve nue of a fishery be applied to the purchase ofa single item ot |>erfuinery 1 but why multiply proofs of tms kind? We have the testimony of Moses that ail was ?l>e properly of the despots. What kind of a go vern mrnt is it when priests held the consciences of the Kings, and where the life of a cat was of more consequence than that ofa human being? Theodorus rticulus relates an anecdote. He says when the Egyptians were endeavoring to gain tne friendship of the Romans, und when their king was trying to get the title of Ally of Koine, one of the Komans killed a cat, and nothing could pre ?vent the taking the life of the killer, although he nad done it accidentally. What shall we say of Greece, was notSparta and Attica gifted with free'institutions! The genius of liberty did, indeed, for a while, hover over those places, but found no resting place for the sole of her foot. How far civil freedom was enjoyed by the Lacedemonians, will sufficiently appear from a brief analysis of their political system. A Spartan was not to marry whom he chooBe ; their clothing Was regulated by law ; their houses should be made with an axe and saw, without any other instrument; wild to appear well fed and clad, was a high crime. Parents were not to give their children more than on** meal a day, and shoes and stockings were too great a luxury. No other amusement But hunting, und other exercises of the body, were permitted, and the very subjects of conversation were regulated by law ; and you and I, ladies and gentlemen,are now, by the laws of Lycurgus, committing a great crime. The unexampled rigor of Spartan laws, made the hearts of the people and of tne kings hard. Witness the unrelenting severity towards their enemies, and particularly towards the Helots, each of whom were to receive a certain number of lashes every year to keep them in mind ot their duly of obedience ; and wh t shall we say ot the abominable am buscade.? Every year the teachers selected a certain number of pupils, armed them with poignards, and sent them to ihe fields to return at night and slaughter the He lots ;and each year, at a certain festival, all the chil dren of the city were whipped until the blood flowed, and several of the victims expiring under the torture in the presence of their pa rente who were present, and saw them re ceive the number of lashes. What shall we call this brutality; human nature stands aback st con templating such scenes. The Spartans were the bravest und most warlike people of all Greece, but at this point our eulogy must cease. But was popu lar liberty enjoyed at Athens? We are too much disposed to view the Athenians on the favored side, and we are imposed upon by the lustre and dazzled with the victory of Marathon, and their pillars and monuments, which will make the name of Athens ever memorable: yet, if we examine the interior po lity of this republic, far different views strike us; we see assemblies always tumultusus, a people agitated by faction* and abandoned fo the impetuosity ofthe vilest haranguerp; we shall see public virtue expo sed nnd service done the state punished with ostra dam. Not only was the interior of Athens such as we have described; not only did t ey violate the principles of |>opular government, as we Americans understand it; but no citizen was eligible to a seat in the Sen - te.or any magistracy whatever, and even the right ot voting sinks into insignificance, when the Senate alone nad the power of convoking these assemblies, and passing upon such laws as were brought before the body, the chief part of the exe* cutive power was in the Senate, the Senate alone C' uld build ships, the Senate alone could confine st-ite prisoners, and to crown all, had the power to jmnieh offences not named in any law whatever he criminal laws of Greece were in some respects indulgent and in some rigorous; it was easy for r:r''"rcr ^ Natives had not .wETk ?L ^."1" tbe Pub''C <??? not interfere ,he had full liberty during all the pro ceedings against h.m, and could redeem himwff with money; event thing was reduced to damage "d ^h 'fn ,K . e gf*?" of Hamulus soon?tfr the death of that consummate robber, visited a Senator and addressed him thus: "do tell mv countrymen that it is the will of heaven that ?e "f ^ihs worlll |U? k Wl11, ^COm- tb? distress of the world; let her cultivate the knowledge of war, and transmit the saying to agea. No morta power can withstand the krms of Rome." How faithfully did she receive this? Let us look ?t the acts of the Cesars, and whatever merit may he denied her none will dispute her title to H predatory city. The whole body of her citizens ?vac divided into six classes : first those worth 100, 000 pounds of brass, equal to #35.000, and the sixth class composed of peraons worth #4,000 and less and the intermediate classes gradualinn between theas extremes. These else*. were aub^vided mto ceniuriea-22 in the fourth class, 80 in the fifth, nnd the whole of the aigth class formed but one century each century having but a single vote. Yet this' wi/row m u WM| dloTda us no {noifhi into T?i significance of the people in political power. The lowest class never exercised a partial# of politioal power, having but a casting vote when there was a tie. No public business could be originated by the popular part ot the government. It must be present ed by the wealthy, and what can we say of the rights of the weaker elms, when the law recognised chil dren as things or furniture, and which-the head of the family, like furniture, might remove or destroy at pleasure?when the father, through caprice, might compel his daughter to leave the husband whom she loved, and where the law recognised the wife as the daughter of the husband. Such is a sketch of Roman laws. In concluding this preliminary dis course, I will take shelter unaer the name of the learned Geoghegan, who holds the following lan guage: Arts, sciences, commerce, navigation, mili tary?even the manners necessary for the preserva tion of society, all these great objects of society were but yet in the rough draft in the reign of Cy rus. The rights of nations were unknown, and mo rality in general little understood. I deny not that there were elements in their polity worthy of all praise, but the point I am to establish is, that civil rights were unknown to antiquity. By the govern ments of moat ancient empires the people seem to be considered as of little account. In Rome they were fighting slaves,in Sparta Helots, in Athens idle vagabonds, and throughout the whole ancient world the mas8ea were degraded, brutalized and oppressed by monarchical power?despotism always in the as cendant. To this rule the Jewish republics are a striking and illustrious exception. No better organi zation ever existed than that of the Hebrews, ready at af moment's call to resist an attack on their country?they may well be regarded as the noblest specimen of an independent nation the world has ever seen, and realizes the beau ideal ol an inde pendent government, having features which mark it kindred to our own. The true elements ot repub lican liberty are not to be sought in the Roman and Grecian laws, but in the great prototype of our political institutions is to be found that which was given by Jehovah, the Supreme Ruler of the world. Yes, that glorious charter of. human freedom, which first Bent its voice from the State House of Philadel phia, which, like the words written on Belshazzar's wall, has made the knees of tyrants to tremble, and which is the terror of despots. The animating pledge of liberty was but an echo from the deep thunders of Mount Sinai. City Intelligence. iWD 8hilliwo?.? When the new postage lew per*tlon,lt WM under.tood that a ?ar?

Although the weather waa unfavorable for sport, yesterday, there waa a goodly number of highly re spectable persons on the course to witness the pro mised sport. Among those present, there were con siderable many from Albany, Troy, and parts adja cent, to witness tbe feats of the Albany pet, Mos cow, and showed their confidence in his powers against Reality, by i etting most liberally?first, at 12 to 15, then again at evens; just before the start at 10 to 8 on Moscow, at which figures considerable sums were laid out, eventually to their satisfaction. Moscow has been generally termed a " sucker," notwithstanding the greatyrice paid for him. There is something in him that may yet tell most forcibly against the would-be-knowing ones, unless they are very careful. He certainly showed evidence of something big within, that could with an able driver be brought out of him. Both animals looked well for the struggle when they stripped, and gave addi tional confidence to their supporters. The track was in excellent condition. It was a match tor #1,400?mile heats, under the saddle, between Gen. Dunham's b. g. Moscow and James D. McMann's br. in. Reality. Shortly after three o'clock the horses were in readiness, and after one or two attempts at a start, they went forth, well together. At the draw-trate Moscow broke and lost some 3 or 4 lengths, but re covered by the time the other reached the quarter, and at the half they were well together again. At the three-quarter, Reality broke and lost some 6 or 8 lengths Botn labored hard for home, and the mare recovered considerably as they approached the draw-gate, but inside ot the same the mare broke again, and lost what advantage she had obtained, and Moscow came home a dozen lengths is front, in 2m 39Js. Previous to the second heat, the betting was 10 to 3 on Moscow. Some said a rotten apple to Wall Btreet. Hiram Woodruff took the saddle on Reality in place of J. McMann. This madea difference in the betting, and the odds came up to 2 to 1 on Moscow, which was taken freely. After about ten or a dozen attempts for a start, the word was given; Moscow led the way, but before they reached the drawgate, Reality made a bad break, by which Moscow led at the quarter some twenty lengths. Moscow led to the half in lm. 20s. 100 to 5 was now olfered on Moscow, but no takers. Moscow went well and steady, and Reality was re covering her lost ground considerably, but on going round the top she made another break, which threw her chance out for this heat: she did the same inside the drawgate coming home, and Moscow came in a winner with ease, in 2m. 44s. Besides the #1,400 stakes, there were #200 out side bets between the parties owning the animals. The Albanians flushed their money like "boys," as did the Trojans. There was a considerable amount of money pending. The betting throughout was most lively at the figures quoted. The next piece of sport was for a purse of #30, mile heats, best three in five, under the saddle: Thomas McKeon enters. , .b. g. Peter Smith C.Bertin e spot. h. Arab D. Bryant gr. m. Fanny Wright Fanny took the lead by some two lengths in the first heat, but at the quarter they were all well to gether; shortly alter Fanny broke, and the bay horse took the lead ; Arab went up round the top and lapped the horse, and maintained this position to the drawgate, when he broke, which threw his chance out, and the bay came heme in 2m 49s. The second heat was very similar; the bay horse won, but not without a close challenge from Arab, as they came inside the drawgate, when he broke; the bay horse winning in 2m. 47s. The third heat the rider of Fanny Wright was willing to give up the contest, but an Albanian wished to try his powers, and the seat on the saddle was given up to him; but with worse success; he was no more than a child on a high bred animal, compared with the former rider; ne could neither ride, drive, or guide. Peter Smith came in after a beautiful brush from Arab, at the drawgate, in 2 m. 47 s., winning the purse. Cricket Match.?St. George's Club of this city against the Union Club of Philadelphia. The two first elevens ot these clubs came together yes terday for a friendly match, on the ground of the St. George's Club, Bloomingdale Road. The result was as follows, on the first innings:? St. George's 44 Union Club of Philadelphia 88 Play will be resumed to-day. Boat Rack.?The match announced to take placi off the Elysian Fields, Hoboken, yesterday, did not come off, in consequence of some misun derstanding between the parties. Trotting on the Beacon Course To-day.? Some excellent sport is promised. Lady Suffolk makes her appearance against another good animal, which is a guarantee for everything that can be ex pected. The Lexington Races have afforded very good sport, both from the number of fine horses which contended for the different purses, and the excellent time that was made. We annex a summary of a two mile race, the second heat in which was the fcuteet ever run in Kentucky! Arcade Stake.?Two mils Heats?$36 entrance. P. P. $60 pitcher given by J. 8. Hetton of the Arcade.

Mr. Heinsohn's Consul taking the first heat for which Denmark ran a good third, and Mr. War field's br. h. by Mons. Tonson running second, and well up to the winner in the two concluding heats. Brooklyn City Intelligence. Common Council.?The Common Council of Brooklyn met lait evening, and remained in session until a very late hour. Their proceeding!, up to the time of our leaving, were not of a very important character, being chiefly confined to the reception and reading of commu nication!, petition!, and report!. Among these was a do cument of a most ludicrous eharacter, the true meaning and interpretation of which no one present could under stand, signed by a Mr. William Black, corner of York and Adams streets. A communication waa received from F. B. Spiuola, in relation to the fight between fire com panies No*. 3 and 4 (as reported in tbe Herald) and a long discussion took place on the subject of permitting the owner of a Floating Theatre to ply his trade at the Ful ton Dock. Thia request was granted after a strenuous opposition Iroro only five of the fourteen members pre sent. An invitation from the Queen's County Agricul tural Society, to attend their grand annual festival on the 9th instant, was accepted , a communication was receiv ed from Andrew Oakes, Esq. Coroner of Brooklyn, ask ing for the immediate erection of a public dead house . and a long and very eloquent remonstrance was receiv ed from several persons, who had been heavily assessed for the construction of the City Park; against the profuse and injudicious expenditure of their msney, and tha un necessary and vexatioui delay which had taken place in completing thia, but at best, equivocal improvement. Kinds County General Sessions.?The October term of thia Court commenced yesterday, before a full bench of Judges?the Hon. John Vanderbiit, presiding. At the opening of the Session, the names of the several Grand Jurors were called over and a full panel was in attend ance, of which N. W. Luqueer, Esq., was appointed fore man. A truly eloquent and impressive charge was de livered by Judge Vanderbiit, in which he spoke of the extraordinary number of prisoners confined in the County Jail, and of the great increase of crime in this generally weli behaved section of the Republic. The requisite number of petit jurors were sworn, and the business of the Court proceeded by the arraignment ol a man named Alexander McClure, indicted for an as sault and battary upon Thomas Silk, with an intent to kill. Tha defendant is somewhat notorious in New York, es the keeper oi a low porter house in the vicinity of the Fulton market, known as " The Scotch Chieftain," and is alike unenviablv known in Brooklyn as the perpe trator of several brutal outrages upon the persons of un offending and comparatively weak men. The complain ant carries on business as a blacksmith, opposite the foundry ol Messrs. Birkbeck and Sons, in Brooklyn-, and, aa it appeared "on the trial, gave no provocation for the assault charged against the accused, who pointed a gun at Silk's head, threatening him with instant death if he dared to approach a certain vehicle which he had beer employed to repair. Tha defence was very ably con ducted by Alex. Campbell, Esq., and the prosecution was equally well managed by Mr. Rolfe, the talented co-partner and associate of the district attorney. The jury found the prisoner guilty of an assault and battery only ; and the Court immediately sentenced him to three months imprisonment in the county jail, at hard labor, and to pay a fine of one hundred dollars. At tbe conclusion of this trial, a boy named Moseley was put to the bar charged with a grand larceny. The facts were clear and conclusive against him, and, after his conviction ha was, in consequence of his yeuth, con signed to the House of Refuge. The Court then adjourned until half-past ten o'clock this merning. Natv Yard Affairs.?An arrangement has been made under the regime of tha present purser of the yard, which will enable all tha peraons there engaged, to re ceive their wages promptly every fortnight. This is truly a "consummation devoutly to be wished," and one for which the Government will, no doubt, receive due credit from all persons interested in so popular and ex cellent an arrangement. A Tri e Prophect.?We stated yesterday that the proposed Base Ball match between eight players of New York against eight players of Brooklyn, would turn out to he a lailure; and so it was, for tho Now Yorkers did not make their appearance on tbe ground, and the supper provided by their order was necessarily untouched. A Stranok Rumour.?It was currently reportod last evening, that a distinguished officer of the Navy, rosiding in Brooklyn, had been detected with one of his servant girls in mi act of a very immoral nature; rendered still more culpable from the fact of her having been a protege ' n the gentleman's household, and long ragarded aa "one ot the family."

Eight hundred thousand dollars of this amount had been ordered to New Orleans snd oue hundred thousand to Mobile, to meet the in creased expenses of the government in that aeetion of the country, resulting from the preparation! made to repel any invasion of Texas. The deposits have been withdrawn from the Bank of Wooitar, and it ia possible that institution will no longer be a government depoai" tory. The repeated attack* upon that bank by the Ohio papers, and the rapid increase recently made in ita paper istuea, have, no doubt, bad sufficient influence in the treasury department to cauie a removal of the deposits from that bank. Since the last monthly statement, the Brooklyn Bank of Brooklyn ha* bean added to the list of depositories! and has received deposits amounting to $70,000. The Bank of Pittsburg and the Bank of Baltimore baye ceas ed to be depositories, and the State Bank of New Jersey and the Brooklyn Bank have supplied their places. 1 he revenue from cuatoms, received at this port, up to the lat of September, for the yeara 1843,1844 and 1845, has been as snnexed Revenue from Customs?Post of New Yoax. 1843. 1844. 1845.

If there has been a proportionate decrease in the revenue trom customs re ! ceived at all the other ports of entry, the deficiency thia year, compared with laat, will not vary much from eight millions of do'lars, an amount nearly equal to the present surplus revenue. The amount of revenue from custom* received at Bos ton for the third quarter of 1844 and 1845 was aa annex ed :? Revenue from Customs, Port of Boston. From July 1st to Sept. 30th, 1844 $2,086,602 60 From July 1st to Sept. 30th, 1845 1,940,000 00 Decrease third quarter, 1845 $146,602 60 The expenditures of the government for I845t will, without doubt, exceed those for 1844 seve ral millions of dollars, which with the reduced receipts, will leave at the close of the next Session of Congress a very small surplus. It is very probable that an effort will be made at Washington during the approaching winter, to regulate the receipt and disbursement* of the government moneys and to provide for the safe keeping ol the surplus revenue, and it is possible, by the time *Dy new act may be passed,regulating thia important branch of the government, there will be ao amall a balance in hand as to require very little effort to protect. There is at present very little probability of there being, after the present one ia disposed of, a surplus revenue derived from duties on importations. The average rate per cent duty on import* is now higher than it over will be again, and the importation of foreign manufacture* upon which the rate of duty ranges very high.n gradually decreasing from year to year as our own manulactures improve in the variety and quality of their fabric*. Even under the present tariff act, there ia annually a steady decrease in the average rate of duty, and should tho administration succeed in modifying the existing act, and bring thf rate down to an average of twelve and e'half per cent?the Secretary ol the, Treasury's standard for a revenue to. rill?there will be vary little chance of aay surplus ac cumulating in the public depositories, unlosa a revenue is raited from other sources than from import*. The im portation of free good* is increasing, and tha value of dutiable goods from thia time hence will, without doubt, except in some speculative yeara, annually .dec reaa# and the revenue from that source of course experience a corresponding decline. Our domestic, manufactures arc inoreasing much more rapidly than the population or demand for conaumption. The moat important articles of cotton snd woollen menufacture we already make in large quantities and of superior quality. Tho demand for these article! is supplied by our domestic manufac turers, and the production of tho finer qualities of goods made of these materials, is steadily increasing. A few years since our cities were filled with English printsjwe now seofvary few of them, our domestic manufactures have driven them out of the markets. The revenue from the importation of these fabrics is, therefore, lost. The same revolution is gotnf on inmousiellnede lain**, in article heretofore maaufoitured almost exclusively hp the French, inrntoM quantities of which wore a few 1 years since imported. Our domestic manufacturers with in the put year or two commenced the manufacture of this article, and the importation has fallen off astonish ingly. In almost every description of foods manufac tured in Europe, and previously imported very exten sively, there hu been a revolution similar to that in the two above named articles. There is no industry in this country progressing so rapidly, or upon a more solid basis, than cotton and woollen manufactures With every facility for the production of every variety and quality of fabrics, with the raw materials at our doors, and streams of water of immense power running through every section of the country?with skillful operatives, and the meat improved machinery, there is no reason in the world why this should not be the most extensive manufacturing nation in the world. While we are almost daily becoming less dependent upon foreign countries for their manufactures, when the maxi mum of our importations of high dutiable goods has been reached, and the revenue from that source steadily decreasing, it is highly necessary that a modification of our tariff laws should be made to supply this deficiency; but it is a question whether an average duty of twelve and a half per cent on our total importations would do it. Every alteration in the tariff is an experiment, but unfor tunately, our legislators are toe fond of these experi ments. This government requires a net revenue of about thirty millions of dollars per annum; to raise that amount from imports alone, at an average duty of twelve and a half per cent, Secretary Walker's revenue stan dard would require an importation of from two hundred and fifty to three hundred millions of dollars per an num, or about three times the value of the present im portatlons.
