NEW YORK HERALD. . W * ? ?? ?., 'I'm ti ,<?>. i.ili' r 1M4.V (;j|y l?.i form. ?vv.y year the people of this city assemble in their diflerrnt wards, lor the pur pose of placing in the various municipal offices men who tliall regulate the affairs of our city. Vtar after yrar, since our incorporation, has this g irlie be>-n oarri-d on; und year after year have dil terent parties und different individuals enacted and enforced, hs they listed, the rules and regulations by which we were to be governed in city affairs, .ind our lives and health protected, and our happi ness increased. In former times, some little attention was paid to the wishes of the people, and those appointed to govern the city b?c?me but the exponents of the people's desires. But of lats years, since wi have been split up into little parties and cliquti, and since we have departed from the good, honest days of our fathers, our officers have altered with ths times, until now, about the last possible thing upon which they exercise their thinking faculties, is tbs legitimate object which they were chosen to carry out. In the strife of party every thing else is for gotten, and the glory of success is considered an einple equivalent for the manifold evils of a badly regulated system of city government We have tried all the existing parties, and whig istn, nativism, and democracy have all failed in carrying out the legitimate objects for which they were elected. Probably, never in the annals of our city, have the municipal affairs been so badly regu lated hs during the existing administration. Look at the streets! Throughout last spring, when a fa tal j>estilence, generated without doubt by the filthy condition of the highways and byways of the city, was spteading to an alarming extent among all {?lasses of society?even when the horrors of gene ral infection were exhibited to the minds of the Corporation?it was a long time before they heeded the warning; und weeks after the commencement of the pestilence, the streets were piled up with mountains of mud ; and through the hot and sul try days of summer, the dust was suffered to accu ? mulnte in such quantities, that when a shower of rain came over, we were left again to wade our ways through the streets. And throughout the whole existence of the present Corporation, the streets have been in a worse condition than ever before. But not only in the preservation ot cleanliness have the present Corporation failed. They establish ed a new police system, and adorned the coat facings of eight hundred men with huge brass stars. These men, we were told, were to be knswn by the star, and stationed at all the corners, both night and day, ready to protect our citizens at a moment's notice. This was a reform much needed ; but where are the "stars 1" Who ever sees them 1 During the day, are they found stationed through our streets 1 No. And at night, are they scattered about, vigilant and active to prevent burglaries, robberies and murder 1 If they are, those who have taken the trouble to look for them must have been gifted with a singu larly unfortunate vision. Since their organization, burglaries and all night crimes have been on the in crease. until the people have become utterly dis gusted, not with the police system, which is a good one, but the miserable manner in whith it is regu lated. The omnibus nuisance is as bad as ever. Every citizen who rides in one of these vehicles, is liable to be killed by "permission of the Corporation," and "no blame could be attached to" anybody. The lawj for the regulation of the omnibusses are not en forced, and our citizens are entirely at the mercy of the drivers. Tiie lottery ind policy offices still continue to be open, for the robbery of the poor, whose hopes are excited hy th* prof-pect of wealth, and no notice is taken of it by the Corporation, although the business is now openly curried on in every 6trect in the city. The people are now pretty well convinced that noneol the old parties will act in this matter of city reform. In the government of a city, all party diffi culties should be laid aside. They are of no use.? Tiie primary and sole object of a municipal govern ment should be properly to conduct our city affairs. Ail parties can and should now unite for the attain ment of this "consummation devoutly to be wish ed." The Late Cowhidin? in the Union Office at Washington ?Several newspapers, of late, in at tempting to account for the cowhiding inflicted up on Grey, (a correspondent and letter writer,) by Heiss, one of the Union people, impute it to certain statements said to have been made by the former in dividual, which appeared in the New York Herald, reflecting upon the females of Mr. Ritchie's family. This, however, has been contradicted by the victim of Heiss's barbanty, and we feel bound to say that we can and do sustain his contradiction. During the short time that Grey was reporter and corres pondent for this journal, reference was made by him, only once, to the ladies of Mr. Ritchie's fami ly, and then in a manner highly complimentary to them. On one occasion, indeed, some mention was made by him of Mrs. Polk, the accomplished lady of the President, which, had we seen it in time, would have been excluded from our columns, as were afterwards other allusions, made with too treat freedom, to other ladies, which we struck out from the manuscript; and Grey, finally, was dis missed from our employ, for sundry impertinences personal to us. No excuse, therefore, has yet been ottered, for the conduct of Mr. Heiss, in this matter; and, in deed, it was a specimen of brutality which admits of no ajwlogy, and which nothing can justify. Pro bably he may have intended, by this exhibition of awless ferocity, to show his qualifications, and give strength to his claim as a candidate for the printing, at the coming Congress; and if so, no doubt it will have its proper weight with a certain portion of members?in fact, it was the best sjtecinien of bru tality we have heard of?and surpasses, in that line anything that ever Blair and Rives have exhibited. Lausbable Instance of Infamy.?Our most amiable contemporary, the Fourier and Down-renter organ, has pronounced sentence upon the New York Herald, and declares it as his deliberate opinion that the recnt express from Boston to this city, run by he Herald, and by means of which we were able to lay before our readers the news brought by the Bri tannia, ahead of all the other journals of New York city, was one of the deepest acts of infamy ever per petrated in the newspaper world, and a great crime in the New York Herald. No doubt it was so, in the estimation ol all our lazy, lumbering, lubberly contemporaries, who neither will nor can run an express themselves, but who weep and gnash their teeth with rage at those who surpass them Indeed, it is not only in New York, but in London and elsewhere, the energy and jeeess of the Herald in outstripping so many con l etitore, has occasioned an outcry against us, which the old world echoes, as it gathers the sound from i ie shores of the new world. They are grieved to nee the Herald more successful and prosperous than i hey, with their puny vitality, can ever hope to be. Such grumblings are only laughable and contempti ble. Th* Memphis Convention -This body met on the 12th inst., and on the 18th elected the Hon. John C Oilhoun its Chairman We have received the /oceedings of the first three days of us session, vrhich are ! . he found in another column. This i ' .hvi iitio'j jppears to be numerously attended by iiiaoy i t ute prominent men from the West, South V.-ft and South, and their proceedings will be of a ?r> ii resting character, even if they do not re ? nlt in much The tacts elicited will be worth .-?omething.

Statute and Municipal Law?Police RrFobv, See.?A Port of disease, it would appear, lias Ut terly grown up in the public muid, ui consequence of the inefficiency of the whole co<3e of our jurisprudence to meet the contingencies of the times, and the abuses that exist throughout the entire , framework of our local constitution, ranging through its various channel?, lrom the purdoning power of the Executive, through our Court of Errors, Supreme Court, and other branches of the judicature, until it narrows itself down to some paltry abuse under our city government, whether at the Tombs, police offices, or some of onr ward courts. We have but too many evidences of this con tused state of things, latterly presenting themselves before th? public eye, end calling forth the indig nant condemnation of the great bulk of our citizens, who have a regard for public morals, the peace and order of society. In our courts of law, the force of a public trial has become so perfect a mockery of justice, that the difficulty of procuring a jury to try a criminal, when ths people be?r in mind the fa cility by which a solnma verdict can be set aside, is becoming more manifest day by day. The recent anti-rent movement in our Stat^-the farce that is now playing before our eyes in one of our local tribunals?the every day abuses that present them selves in every department uuder the State and city governments, demand reformation on such a basis as should render our laws and constitution such as they have been designed for?namely, a guaranty tor the lives and liberties of the citizens, contain ing just and salutary provisions for the punishment ot offenders, and of all high crimes and misde meanors. By the-bailing system, how many cruni- ! nals nave escaped the penalty which the statute law attaches to their crimes T The abuse of the writ cf habeat corjnu also?then the |>ower of ap[>eal from court to court?until some technicality is fished up by a stupid practitioner at the bar, by which the solemn verdict ot twelve men upon their oaths, is set aside. These matters, have all operated upon tnc public mind to such an extent as to render trial by jury a perfect farce. The jury system in itself, is also quite detective. Jurors will not willingly serve without pay?and where men lose their time, and labor thus in the public service without some remuneration, public justice cannot be meted out from the jury box with that stem impartiality which should mark the so' lemn decision of twelve men upon their oaths. The extraordinary proceedings in the case now before the Circuit Court, is in itself a sufficient commen. tary upon the whole system ot our code ot laws. The ground ot exclusion from the jury box?namely, formation ot opinion from newspaper or public ru mor?is a sort of test that is quite at variance with the spirit of the law and provisions under the statute. A juryman is boand to render a verdict " according to the evidenn," as the statute expressly provides?not as to any previously formed " opin ion" irom rumor or otherwise?so that there is a manifest absurdity in the ruling of the upper courts upon this point, and the interpretation set upon it in the present case. In this state of things, it is to be hoped that the convention will modify and remodel the statute law of the State, and also that measures will be taken to reform the city government. There is a wide field tor the exercise of this called tor change. As our quati guardians in the Corporation have become so inocculated with the mania of partizanship, the people have to depend solely upon themselves. We therefore trust that the most active measures will be taken by the people to bring these various mat ters before the State convention in due season, and secure such a reform as will restore public confi dence in our tribunals of justice. Criticism?Theatrical asd Musical.?We have trom twelve to fifteen gentlemen employed in this office as reporters and writers in our several edito rial departments, besides volunteers in any quantity. With such a large number of different minds to or ganise and regulate, it is dillicult, sometimes, to have every thing as could be wished. Opinions and remarks will be published ttiat we disapprove and disagree with?such was the case with the remarks made by one of our musical critics, on Mrs V. Mott, in yesterday's paper. She was entirely underrated. No doubt the other vocalists now in the field, have an interest to keep all new rivals away?but the na" tural genius and acquired talents of Mrs. Mott, as an artiste, are ot gucha high rank an to contend suc cessfully against all competition, and all envy. She again api*ears on Friday, at Ruber's concert, and will receive that applause which her great merits deserve. Interesting from Texas ?This new State, now at nurse, but probably to be weaned early this winter, is in a happy and prosperous condition. We have received a file of papers, published there, to the 12th inst., in which we find a vast deal of in teresting and important information. Among the most c*rious features of the new State are the an c.ent ruins which seem to be spread over the length and breadth of the land. We have before published accounts of several remarkable discoveries of an cient towns, and we now give on the outside the particulars of the finding of another and still more remarkable one that existed years ago.

It will be the last game plared thu season, if indeed the weather on the day named at all permit the cricketers to carry out their intention!. Arming Canada.?The discussion of the Oregon question and the probabilities of war between the United Statei and Great Britain, are the chief topic! at preient with the Canada press. The recent order! from the home government, to extend the frontier fortifioa tioni, and erect new onen at leveral point! on the St. Lawrence, add not a little intereit to the matter.

Montreal Letltr. Melancholy Affray.?On Thursday evening, 13th inst. Captain C. Vanderford was murdered, in Cheraw, S. C. Upon repairing to tho place where ( apt. V. had been in the habit of transacting buiiness as a merchant, we saw him laid out on the table, a ghastly mid bloody corpse It appears that Angua Taylor,about '26 years of age, had been in and before the atore of the itecensed, making use of oaths and abusive epithets? tnat Captain V nad ordered Taylor away, pushed him away, and ?as observed to strike turn with a stick, upon which the <w? closed and passed a nuafber of blows, lay lot uiing a dirk knile winch he had in bii hand, and with which ne infliciel nine wounda mine left aide ol 1 apt V , thin causing hn death in hall an hour. Ai soon ai the partita asperated, Taylor fled, bat was pur n'tit '"' an^ ptoctd in connne. Theatrical!. Pab* Theatrk ?Last evening, the visitors oftb* Park war* verymuch disapp#iutod,owiig to th* announcement that Mki Daley wii suddenly indisposed and could not pa !orm in " Dar Kreischutz " A largo number of the a". 'iance lclt. The bill substituted was "Lucille" and the two farces of the Peculiar Position" and "Spital fields Wearer." Iu " Lucille," Mrs. Bland as the heroine was touching, sweet and powerful. Tho minor charac ter* were alio well sustained, and the farces went off in tin* style. The Philadelphia Washington Grays were present, and between the pieces their band play several air* vary finely. This evening, Mr. Tlacido re-appears in his own character of Sir Harcourt Courtley, in " Loudon Assurance." Mrs. Bland sustains the character of Lady (Jay Spanker. Mr. Placide also play* Grandfather White head. Bowcir Theatre.?We ca^ only repeat our previ ously expressed experience in regard to the multitudes who throng this vast and commodious house. Last night this popular establishment was crowded in every part, ard the performances?enriched by the skilful aid of Yanke* Hill as Sy Sacoand Major Wheeler; Mr. J. K. Scott in th* part of Michaal, with Cony and Blanchard in th* Mountain Drover, sustained by th* *ntir* strength of th* sorjji dramattqut?went off with great applause. To-night, and in oommemoration of th* *vaouatiou of th* British troop* from our city, on* of th* richest bills of th* s*aaon will b* presented, and in which Yanke* Hill, J. R. Scott, Cony and Blanchard, and th* combined capacities of the company, will appear. Th* a*l*ction of th* pi*c*s, among whioh we r*cognize Dunlap's na tional play of th* " Glory of Columbia," aad th* Indian *p?ctacle of the "Cherok** Chi*f," form distinguished features. Alhamba.?This An* little plac* of amus*m*nt con. tinues to b* nightly fillad with large and fashionable audiences. They have th*r* this w*ek, Miss Mary St Clair, Dr. Yalaatin*, th* Guinea HerenaJers, and Mens Phillip*. With such a bill, success is not strange There will b* an aitarnoon performance to-day. Olf Bti.l's FarewelxConceht.?At the urg*nt soli citation, and incompliance with th* publi?h*d request of anany of our most esteemad and rcspected citizens, this distiaguished mrtitii, and accomplished gentleman, gives a grand farewell concert at the Tabernacle, on Wednesday evening His career since his first arrival in America, has been one series of triumphs and bril liant successes. His houses hare been filled to overflow ing, by treops of ardant admirers, and derated personal friends. Poetry, music and sentiment hare b**n harmo niously minglod and blended, in all he has done and said; and hi* last words of parting will be listened to by all that is lorely, talented and musical in New York. Mrs. Valentine Mott.?This lady, whose debut crea ted such an immense sensation ia the musical, as well as the fashionable circles in this city, a short time since, is about risiting Boston and Philadelphia, with the inton tion of giring concert* in each place. Her appearance there will no doubt call out all the aristocracy and beau ty of those cities, as well as the lorers of mnsic and melody. Mrs. Mott is a highly accomplished and gifted lady, with an excellent musical education, and a rich contralf voice. Her career must indeed be successful and brilliant She is accompanied by Mr. J. A. Kyle, the celebrated flutist, who has won golden opinions in this city aad elsewhere. German Opera.?We understand that some difficulties have sprung up between the German trnupe and the pro. prietors of Palmo's Theatre, so that it is doubtful if the company can appear there. How is this 7 Ethiopia* Serenadkrs.?Palmo's Opera House was filled to repletion last night with the beauty and fashion of our great metropolis. We have never soen a greater display of hearty enthusiasm, nor do wo know those more capable of demanding it than this same popular brotherhood, made tip as it is by Messrs. Germon, Stan wood, Harrington, Pelham, and White. Their success abroad has been such that they were compelled to enter into new engagements, and their return necessarily pre cludes the possibility of more than a very limited stay at Palmo's. Temrleton's Musical Entertainment.?The Taber nacle, last evening, presented a brilliant and dazzling display oi loveliness, beauty and fashion. The vast hall was thronged in every part by the elite of New York, who had assembled to greet the most popular and gen tlemnuly singer of the day. The flashing of dark eyes? the glitter of jewels and magnificently arrayed forms of Gotham's fairest daughters, must have filled tho breast of the prince ol tenors with unbounded joy and gladness? and probably called from him those rich and exquisite bursts of melody which enchanted and enchained his au dience. Upon Ills apnearance, Mr. Templeton was greet ed with loud and enthusiastic plaudits?it was, indeed, a kind and warm reception, which he may well be ?roud of. The first song, " Jessi*. th? Klownr ui Dumbiaue," was r ndered with true feeling, and produced a great sensa tion. The "Jolly Beggar,' however, sung by request, we consider the gein of tho evening. The music is deli cious, and th* manner of tho artiste exceedingly happy and spirited. That exqisite'morcrim, " i love lu>r, how I love Iter," Irom the grand opera of " Gustavus," is above all praise. The woids are beautiful, and the music sur passingly sweet and elegant. The eyes of the liter sought those of his mistress- and many a lip trembled with desire to whisner the wordji of the song in the ear of his adored. The entertainment was interspersed with agreeable and origami anecdote, poetry and senti ment, and the evening closed with the spirit-stirring song, " The Bay ol BUcay." We understand Mr. Tem pleton gives a musical entertainment in Brooklyn, this evening, which, undoubtedly, will be woll attended. Th* Gi*^d Oratorio or St. Pacl.?We obierve, by the announcement in our column*, that thii magnificent work by Mendelssohn ii to be performed at tbe Taber nacle on the 27th of this month. St. Paul, as an Orato rio, ranks with the greatest sacred compositions of Handel and Haydn, and it ii placed, by universal con sent, at the head of modern sacred works. Its success in Germany and England has been extraordinary ; no grand performance takes place without St. Paul being among the selection. Surely, if the Knglish, u horn Napoleon called the most unmusical people on the earth, can appreciate such music, we, with all our energies newly awakened to the divine science, shall not be found behind them in doing honor to tho highest school of the art. Mr. Loder has dovoted much time in getting out this work ; the chorus baa been practised most care fully, and the number of efficient singers will be greater than upon any previous occasion. The band will also be more numerous and effective than usual, there being less demind at this time for orchestral peiformers. The principal parts will be sustained by Mrs. K. Lo dor, Mrs. V. Mott, jun , Mr. R. O. Paige, and Mr. W, llogeri. Of Mrs. Loder, we need not cpeak, as *he has established for herself a name as a classical singer which we can neither enhance nor dcpieciate. Mrs. Mott has yet to establish a reputation for herself, and if the delight testiBvd by the c : owded and fashionable audi tory which attended her fust concert he any assurance for the future, we may safely auger for her a lasting and honorable succesr Mr. H. O. Paige, so well known in private society, has hitherto refused to sing in public ; he has, however, contented upon this occasion, and we are sure that he will make so great an impression that the public will not readily allow him to retire again into private life. Mr. W. Rogers, like Mr. Paige, enjoys a very extensive private reputation as a vocalist, ami we are assured by those who nave heard him, aifd are capa ble of giving a correct opinion, that he sings the very difficult music of St. Paul in a masterly manner. Mr. H. C. Timm is to preside at the organ, and Mr. O. Loder will conduct the entire peilormance. We advise our musical friends to subsciibe at onco ; lor, by so doing, thei will receive three tickets, instead of two, for one dollar. Madame Augusta, the charming and graceful Jstumc, was to make her first appearance at the Walnut street theatre list night. She has ulways been a great favorite there, and will undoubtedly draw large and fashionable house*. More beautilul than ever, possessed ol every accomplishment requisite for success In her divine art, she is celebrated for her private worth and virtues, as well aa artistical skill. The Swisa Bell Ringers are giving conccrts in Louis ville, where they meet with gwat success. The Baker Family gave n concert in Rochester on the 19th instant, whioh was crowded by a very respectable audience. Ludlow fk Smith, managers of the St Charles theatre, New Oilcans, lost their valuable wardrobe by the " snagging" ol the steamer llonry Bry. on ttic 11th inst., about dark, while on her way to New Orleans. The wardrobe was insured in St Louis to the amount of fil,700. Miss Mary Duff, the celebrated tragic actress, made her first appearance in New Orleans, at the American theatre, on the lftth instant, at Klvira, in the tragedy of " Piatarro," and Mrs Turtle, in tho far'-e of " Hunt ing a TurtU Mr. C. Webb playir.? Rolla, and Mr. Gilbert Pizarro. A Nrw Hutchiwsow Family. -The Manchester Jt ?a?ri tan says that Caleb and Joshua Hutchinson, with their sister Rhode, and a young man named < baric* Boston, a superb player upon the accordion, will toon commence a series of concert* in New Hampshire. Boyd Hi'.nq.?The extreme |iena!tv of the law watt iiiflict'd upon Jiibez Boyd, for the ntrocuum murder of Wesley Patten, in the c unty jail yard, at West Chester, at twenty-four minntes pant one o'clock, on Friday last. The youthful murderer made a speech upon the gallows, in which he confessed that liqnor, bad company, and the instigation of the devil, had induced him to commit the act loi which ho was condemned, as well us burglaries in the city of Philadelphia, for which he suffered five yearn in the Penitent/wry.

Delavan's detachment at Fort Washington and McGowau's Pass, and cloiud with a salute fired at sundown front Foit Tompkin*. Stateu Uland. The line will be formed ut u quarter before 11 p'clock in the Washington Parade Ground,light resting on Woosterst parallel with Kourtu st. The various portions of the command will enter the gate on McDougal street; the liorae Artillery inclining to the right, and forming line as above indicated. The Infantry will incline to the left and form " on right into line," extending from McDotigal *treot parallel with Sixth stieet. The review will take place at 11 o'clock. I Immediately after which the line will break into column and pas* out of the grouud by the Wooster atreot gate, marching through Washington Place to Broadway, up Broadway to .Art street, (now Astor Place.) through Art stroet to the Bowery, dowu the Bowery to Grand, the ancient position of the barrier gate or entrance to the city, where a halt will be made and the American flag hoisted ; then pasting dowu to Chutham street and Broadway to Wall, down Wall to Pearl. Wheu at Broad street a sucond halt will be made at the Head Quarter* of Washington in 1783, and Bn American Hag hoiited, proceed to the Battery, entering at the White hall gate. The Hue will be formed, right resting on Greenwich itreet. On the formation of the lino an American llag will be hoitted on the Battery Stall', and tha same llag used by the patriots in 17S3 will he again displayed by David Van Arsdell. (of the Veteran Corps of Artillery,) son of Van Arsdell, who then performed the same duty. After which three hearty cheoit will be given by the entire Oiviiion, and a salute be fired b\ the Lalayette liorae Guards, break into column, leave the Battery by the Greeuwich gate, march up Green wich atreet to Barclay, up Barclay to Hreadway, aud round the lower end of the Park to the eaateru gate. In front of the City Hall the marching *alute will be re ceived by the Mayor and Common Council , after passing the review, the Artillery will send th?ir batteries to tho Arsenal and form liae as cavalry in front of the Hall, right resting on Chatham itreet. The Infantry will form round the Park, fire a ftutde jmr under the direction of Brig. Gen. Van Norden, and dismii*. The Mayor and Corporation invite the command to partake of refresh menu in the City Hall immediately after the parade is diimiesed. After refreihment, the officer* ana soldiers are invited to re-assemble and proceed in company with the Mayor, Corporation, and other guests to the Arse- i nal, to participate in the dedication of the new building erected by the State as a place of deposite for the tro phies taken from the British during the Revolutionary and late wars. National Guard.?We understand that the third and sixth companies of National Guard, under the com mands of Capt. Mount and Lieut. Taylor, have resolved to pnrade to-day, in celebration of the 62d anniversary of the evacution of the city by the British. Washimoton Grays.?The Washington Grays, Capt. ' Mr Adam, arrived in this city from Philadelphia yesterday afternoon. At 2 o'clork, the Light Guards, Cant. Vin cent, marched to the foot of Courtland street, and formed ' a line there for the purpose of meeting and escorting the i Grays. At about half-past 2 o'clock they came over, < and immediately formed a line, and, escorted by the Light Guard, marched to the Park, where they were re- J ceived by the Mayor and Council, drilling with great military exactness and grace of evolution. After par

They accompanied them to St. Paul's churchyard, where the body of their departed brother and fellow soldier was consigned to the dust, with proper exercises and honors. The Grays then returned to their quarters, at Howard's. They number forty muskets, and are as fine looking a body of military as we often see. They remain in the city till Friday, when they return. We understand that they parade to-day with the third regi ment of Washington Gruys of this city.

Common Council Phocfmumos.?To any lover ofsharp shooting in debate, the meetings of the Board of Alder men, in Brooklyn, will afford much amusement. The ! long and angiily discussed subject, in relation to the j erection of a new City Hall, and the many interests in : volved in the issue of that question, have excited so much warfare and exacerbation among the opposing po litical cliques, as almost to convert the Common Council , Chamber into a physical, as well as rneutal, gladiatorial arena It will he lecollected that many mysterious and inexplicable movements have characterised the actions ot the majority, who, after unanimously adopting one plan lor the projected building, as cordially agieed to reject it; and thus resolved, and re-re?olved, until Fpeci tlcations which were origimilly discarded as utterly in compatible with the views of th?- dominant party, were ultir.-?!ely agiend decidt.Mlly superior to any other ' presented. This apparent tergiversation and double dealing has, of couise, met with much opposition from the gentlemen who are in the minority, and -.?e regret to state that the most disgraceful scenes have been enacted in consequonce ; leading, sometimes, nearly to encoun ters of a pugilistic character. Last week, we were re luctantly compelled to speak in terms of disapprobation and censure, of .the conduct of those who rendered themselves prominent in this hear garden dispute, and it now again devolves upon us, briefly to advert to tho equally discreditable proceedings which took place dur ing last evening's session, At the last meeting of the Board, a resolution, offered by Alderman Humphrey, was referred to a special con clave, (of which Alderman Burbank was appointed . chairman,) for tho purpose of deciding whether a writ- : ten statement, offered by the tlireo whig member* of the < ity Hall conimi'tee. setting forth the causes of their withdrawing front such responsibility and trust, should or should not be placed on tile, and become part of the officially recorded transactions of the body corporate ? i ytltsrdtT, a report was presented on this subject,winch contained some imputations ot an unseemly character, against the gentlemen who had tendered their resigna tions; and from this circumstance arose a debate, which was accompanied by expressions and remarks that would have disgraced the Sabilun of the very lowest groggery in the city. One Alderman applied to others the tonus " oleaginous representatives,' pettifoggers, numbsculls, pusillanimous individuals, , and the tame functionary intimated to one of his brethren within the bar, n reply to some harmless figure of speech about the scarlet lady ot Babylon, that " he, at all event", had never been de tected til amorous consultations with a woman in a car riage house." These are but faint specimens ofthe manner and style of some of the honorable members of the Com mon < ouncil of this groat city ; and their constituents, when they leain the character of the proceedings of this potent and influential legislative body, cannot certainly lestrain a "crimsoned blush." There are, of course, many distinguished exceptions to this despicable, demo lalizing, and humiliating method of debate?gentlemen who, lo their credit be it stated, never descend to meun and dastardly personalities, and who, during the most excited and animated discussions, ever keep themselves alooi from blackguardism and vulgarity. Heavy Contracts.?The Committee on Lands and Places, in the Common Council last evening, repotted iu favor of giving contracts to the following mimed firms and individuals for the erection of the new City Hall, at the junction of Court and Kulton streets; which report whs adopted : -Masterson and .Smith, for the required marblo work, $91,360 ; Francis S. Lenyke, for inason work, $18,900 ; Leonard Cooper, for carpentoi's woik (including the rooting of the building,) $17,976; and Samuel Congdon, lor the necessary iron work, $9570. ' In addition to these appropriations,the sum of $3,300 is to paid to Masterson and Smith by way of compromising a judgment obtained fcy them against the city iu relation to tnis long talked ol structure ; three dollars per diem are to be given to a competent aa<l experienced builder to have general supervision and inspection over the mecha nics and laborers ; aud the snug litfle item of two thou sand dollars is to be handed to Gamaliel King, Ksq., the architect, for his plans anil drawings. These Urge ex penditures will not embrace the painting, glazing, ami much ornamental work that will be required ; ami the chances are that at least fifteen or twenty thousand dol lars heyond the present estimates will be demanded for the completion of tho edifice. A Short KrroaT it l.iai rai.itt. ?Alde.-maa Powell, the chosen chairman of a committee delegated to report on the petition ot the Hack and < ab Inspector of Brook lyn, for an increase of salary, last evening presented a resolution to the Common Council extending the com pensation of that useful and indispensthle officer to the liberal sum of $100 per annum. EltTr.?TAi*Mii?rs this Evr.sixfi.? We trust that the lovers of vocal music will not forget Mr. Templeton's concert at the Lyceum this evening; and that those among the young and gay in Brooklyn who preferto pay their devoirs to Terpsichore, will bear in mind fhat to-night they will have a chance to (join with a merry throng, at the saloon of the Brookly ndarden Soui h Fx*?v Masstt ?The stalls of this new mar ket were yesterday disposed of by auction at an annual rental far exceeding in the aggregate amount, the most ?anguine expectations ol the proprietor. His estimate was to obtain about two thousand dollars per year for the whole premises, whereas twenty eight out of the thirty four stands, realized two thousand eight hundred and ninety seven dollais. On Thursday, the new mar ket, at the corner of I-niton arid Furinan streets, (neur the Kerry,) will be let out in a manner similar to the above, when, in all probability, the competition for con spicuous places will be very gieat, as this establishment is destined lo 'ake tho lead of all others iu the city Thb Citt Pass. If the miserable and miasmatic grounds which huve been selected for a public prome nade In Brooklyn, and dignified by the name and title of the " City Park," do not turn out a wretched speculation and a decided failure, then are we no prophet. Around this barren and unsightly enclosure a vast number of boards - par exetll.ntr called a "fence" have been placed, at an expenso ot upwards of five hundred dollars ; and last night, by way of adding to the ahsutdity.a reso lution was passed in the I oinmon 'ouncil authorizing a painter to bedaub the tame, tor the sum of one hundred and fifty dollars If mistake not, ere the termination of the present winter, the deiiitens of that neighborhood will uso both " fence" and paint for fuel.

Not. 94.?Polictmtn Jlrrttled for Orand Ltreeny.?A man who goes by the name of James Davis, oliat Barns, was arrested on list Friday forenoon, upon very suspi cion * circumstances. It appearii he had same difficulty with Mr. Robinson, who keeps a sailors' boarding house in Water street, respecting a cap, whereupon Mr. Robin son communicated his suspicious to policemen James Bennett and James Oibbs, and tliey seeing Davis in com pany with that notorious thief, old Bo') Mutton, took Davis into custody. Davis had been seen acting very stiaiigely, by showing a l.irgn amount of sovereigns.? The olHuers applied to the Chief of Police for advice, when he desired them to search his trunks ; confe quently, they returned to the station hoifse, and pto ceeded with Captain Fitzgerald to a sailor boarding house kept by John O'Bierne, No. 1W Burlmtf slip, where they found, belonging to Davis, two trunks and two bags, all ready to start for Liverpool, that day, in the packet ship.Hottingeur It further appears, however, by the statement of John O'Bierne, that Davis only ar rived in town the day before he came to his house, (Thursday.) Upon the request of Davis, Bierni wrote a letter to a person in Boston, where he snys he has a wife and children. Captain Fitzgerald opened ooe of the trunks, and finding a heavy bag of gole, locked the trunk again, got a carunan, and drove up to the station iiouse. Upon counting the money ut thu station hou-e, they found the bag to contain 214 sovereigns ; '24 sover eigns aud a silver watch which was held for safe keeping by John O'Bierne for Davis, was handed by him te oittcer Bennett, making in all 'J38 sovereigns, nearly $1400 From the knowledge of this letter being sent to boston, officers Bennett and Oibb* concluded to ta" prisoner to Boston, to find out, as they sa. , more about him. Therefore, they started early ?in Saturday morning to go by the Long Island Railroad; when re turning early on Sunday morning, Bennett and Oibbs came into the station house ami requested to speak pri vately with Captaiu Fitzgerald, stating that they met an oflicor coming to New Vork for tne prisoner; consequently they handed Davis over to hiin and returned for the trunks and the money; finding, however, that Fitzgerald was exceedingly vexed at such conduct, and positively retiming to deliver up the trunk* without consulting the Chief of Police, they beckoned to the Captain to follow them into the yard, wheu Bennett request ed Fitzgerald to remain quiet, and he would tell him the truth,?that the prisoner had escaped, and there was no owner for the money; therefore they would divide it amongst them. Fitzgerald felt very indignant, and much alarmed at such conduct, nor would he consent to any such arrangement, wheu Bennett stepped from the yard, went up staiis, (while the Captain was in conver sation with Gihbs,) and unlocked the trunk, took out the bag of gold, and made oft'; when Fitzgerald immediately gave Chase, and found Bennett near uis own house, (he Keeping a sailor boarding-house) and aaked him fir the bag of sovereigns. Ho said, " iny wife has the money ; walk into the house"?when he handed over 16 sove reigns, and said at the same time that was the balance ef the '24 sovereigns, after paying the expenses ; but when asked about the bag of gold containing 414 sovereigns, "that,"' he said, "I intend to keep."' Capt. Fit7.geral<t|im mediatelv arrested Bennett along with Oibbs, and took them before the Mayor, who committed them for exami nation, charging them both with grand larceny. It ap pears, from what we can learn, that Bennett and Oibbs let Davis "slide" onshore at Allen's Point, which is a little below Norwich, wheie the steamer Cleopatra touched to land passengers. If this business had only been done up in a correct manner, no doubt it would have led to disclosures to some extensive burglary, and possibly some horrible murder. Tnis Davis, alias Burns, is an Irishman by birth, (not from the groves of Blarney) but from the county of Kilkenny. Embezzlement by a Clerk.?William It Bleckdom. a cleric in the employ of Henry Ducker, corner of Delan eev and Attorney streets, was arrested yesterday by ameer Prince John Davis, charged with stealing money Irom his employer amounting to >40, and appropriating the same to bis own account.

Nov. 24.?Immediately upon the organization of this court,there was a very full attendance, and a large num berof jurors drawn from the Fifth and Sixth waras were in waiting to gain admittance to ans'wer to their names as called by the clerk. Some little confusion was, there lore, caused, as well as unnecessary delay. About four hundred names were called, the most of which appeared with excuses of exemption, or were sworn as to their having " formed or expressed an opinion regarding the guilt or innocence of the accused." The morning hour was almost entirely taken up in this way, without the least hope of finding any one qualified to enter the jury box. John Capcott sworn?Didn't know whether he had made up his mind or not; was very uncertain as to this Eoint: perhaps he had, and perhaps he hadn't; might ave done so ; thinks he should remember if he had ever given his opinion either way; didn't believe in capital punishment upon circumstantial testimony; thought a murder had been committed ; was pretty certain that Mrs. Houseman was murdered by somebody; didn't know who ; thought tho child might have died in some way other than that of a murderous design. Set aside. Wii.i.iam Kirk sworn?Lives at 42 Walker street; had not made up his mind exactly: thought if he had that he should be governed entirely by the testimony as to the guilt or innocence of the accused ; his opinion now was unfavorable to the prisoner; disapproved of capital pun ishment ; would not convict a person for any capital of fence involving the death of such a person. Set aside. Samukl A. Sur dam wee brought to the stand?Now re sidos in the Fifth ward ; has no opinion ; would net ren der a verdict of guilty in this particular case, because the accused was a female; so expressed himself a day or two since at the dinner table,in presence of two or three gentlemen ; has no conscientious scruples which would conflict with his rendering a verdict of guilty under ordi nary circumstances ; has had an opinion froth (er anil against the prisoner, superinduced by passing remarks ; his opinion was a chanced opinion ; has not now any fix ed sentiments of belief. J. 11. WniTina, Esq., one of the counsel for the people, raised strenuous objections as to the admissibility ofthis juror, upon sopara'e and distinct grounds ; but was over ruled by the Court. The examination was then continued: Did aot believe what he read concerning the prisoner? attached no isnpoitanco to what he had either read or heard; has now no conscientious samples in thii par ticular case?thinks bis views of capital punishment would not preclude his rendering a vordict of guilty if sastalned by evidence. Much time was employed by the counsal on eithor side, as to the eligibility aud qualifica tions ofthis juror?who it seems enjoys some considera ble notoriety, for his having inflicted corporeal punish ment upon a "Signor Alveah,"' an attache or secretary from the Brazilian Rovoramont, lor au alleged insult upon hit wife, at Niblo's. some years since, and sentenced to the penitentiary for six months and fined five hundred dollars This being a violation of the law of nations, and there being some extenuating circumstances, an appeal was made to Executive clemency, who promptly return ed a full and unconditional pardon, and ho was thereby restored to the privileges of citizenship. After a brief charge from the court, the triers retired, and occupying a lew momeuu for consultation, returned with an ex pression of satisfaction as to his capacity to serve as a qualified juror. Up to this time, nine jurors (to the ex clusion ut Air. Conant) h.ive been obtained. John G. Sparling, a ineichant tailor.was then called, who testified?Had not made up his mind fully?some times he thought her guilty, and at other times he thought her innocent?wai influenced in his opinion* from day to day by the testimony as it appeared in the morning papers?had never come to any fi*ed con clusion? after the voidict of the jury in * farscer trial, h is iio he expretsed himself she was guilty, and did then believe her so?predicated his opinion entirely upon the decision ol the jury at that time, and not in regard to his own individual opinion?is now unbiassed. Set aside by the Court, after 11 long and ingenius argument advanced by Mr. Whiting, one ol tho associate counsel in behalf of the prosecution, favorable to his admission. Jamks WiLLoi-GHsr?Had not formed an opinion- was opposed to capital punishment. Declared incompetent. John A Millkh, U. C Smith and Geo. W. Corn were also disapproved of for similar causes. , Oconnr. Catlix was called?Is a merchant tailor r? fnncy goods denier at 34 Bowery; has formed no opinio don't know whether he believed what he read or not; hat never, to his knowledge, said he thought the prisoner guilty j believes there was a murder committed; does not believe it was au accident; has no conscioiitious scru ples in regard to capital punishment; appealed to the ? dirt to oa relieved from serving, representing that his I business would sutler, and that his family, consisting of a wife and five children, would bo entirely unprotected. 1 He was, however, ordered to re-appear on Wednesday morning, at 13 o'clock, for further examination, to which time the Court stands adjourned The panel being ex hausted, a new tales for the 7th, 8th and itth ward* wis demanded by tho Court.
