NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Weilnes'tuy, February SiS, ISM, foreign Correepnideneo, We give, on the outside ol this day'a paper, a very important letter front our intelligent Parts cor respondent. It contains matter of the highest inter cat to every American. The Next Foreign News?Lightning Eiprtib en?\t w?p?per UnUryrtui. We mentioned, yesterday, that the enterprising proprietors of the boston and New York magnetic telegraph line have in contemplation to make ar rangements to transmit the English news by the next steamer at Boston, to this city. This evinces a desire on their part to serve the public, and we hope that it will be proi*rly appre ciated. Although it cannot be expected that the next news will be of such importance to the com mercial wotld as die last was, still it will be looked lor with great interest, and read with avidity. The conduct of die proprietors is more commendable, from the fact diat their line will not be in permanent working order by the nine the steamship arrives, and they will make temporary arrangements for the express purpose of transmitting the news to this city. 11 the same amount of energy and perseverance as characterise this company, had been brought into requisition by the other magnetic telegraph lines, we would, betore this time have had au electric com munication with the principal Southern, Northern and Eastern cities, which would have been of in calculable advantage to the country. The Boston and New York company are trying hard to send the next news, as soon as it arrives, to New York, at least; and for diat purpose are making arrangements to send it to the press gene rally?to no one lu particular?so dut there will be no opportu. nity for speculators to fleece the community. 11 they cannot send the news all die distance, they will do 60 as lar as their arrangements will have been com pleted, and run a steamboat express the remainder of the way to this city. We, therelore, think we shall trust to lightnmg for the next news; for, although we have made the short" est time on record between Boston and New York, we are rather of opinion that we cannot go ahead of lightning, lu case, however, that the Holy Alliance should desire to make another tremendous effort . irrespective of the lightniug line, to beat the " damned Herald," as thry are pleased to call it, we would recommend them to tuke up with our last ar- | rangement, and run over the Long Island Railroad. That road, for speed, stands next to the magnetic telegraph, and they may, perchance, run in "seven, five" from Boston. It being our intention, however, to throw our whole dependence for the next news upon the light ning line, the " Holy Alliance" will have to contend J against tunc, and not the Neu> York Herald. Who la to ?>? the Next President!?Timely Notice. The movements at Washington, and the changes in the position and policy of the .two great politi cal parties of the country, have created considera ble curiosity in the public mind, in relation to the next grand presidential campaign. It is a matter ot much doubt what will be the course ndopted to concentrate the strength of each party, and bring about that unity of purpose and ac tion so necessary to ensure success. It is possible and very probable that all the usual plans will be abandoned; that there will be no convention held by either party, and that each candidate will be placed before the country, independent of conven tions, or any other of the old systems of nomina tion. This will bring forward a great many candi - dates for the office in view, which may defeat the election of either by the people, and throw the mat ter into the House of Representatives. The leaders ol some of the numerous cliquet that exist in both parties, are anxious to create a division in the ranks that will bring about that result; and the prospect at present, is certainly favorable for 6uch a movement. It is admitted that the two parties re- I quire re-organ'uation?that the principle of succes sion has exploded, and that it has become necessary to make choice of one, more identified with, and more recently from the people, than has heretofore hsen considered desirable or necessary. That point being pretty clearlyaettled.it is a matter of much interest to know who are the leading or most prominent individuals before the country'- In Cise, however, the whole matter should settle i down to ttvo candidates, availability will be the point most desirable. General Winlield !>cottt of New York, and General Lewis Cuss, of Mi chigan, stand upon about the same grounds, and can be considered the most prominent can didates of tfie two j>arties. The military repu tation of these individuals must give each the popularity invariably created by military character. I These candidates would present a singular political contest to the American people, alter a peace of thirty years. The people of this country have ever exhibited great enthusiasm, when a military chieitain has been presented tor iheir suflrages, for any oiiice ; and that enthusiasm will, without doubt, be carried to a greater extent, in the event of there being two military heroes nominated for the same ollice. Political questions lose their importance when 1 other matters connected with the personal history of the parties, can be made available. Party lines are not so strictly drawn now, and may not be at the next presidential election, as they have heretolore been. It will, therefore, be necessary to get up the proper feeling and excitement by some other means, and nothing would prove so effective as to nominate military or naval men. We find the two parties in Congress divided upon almost every question presented. A strict party vote is among those things that were. There is as much bitterness of feeling, and as much opposition among the leaders, as ever; but take the majority ot the representatives, and they assimilate to each other more than at any period i-ince the time of Pre sident Monroe. The vote upon the Oregon notice resolutions, in the House, this session and last?the division upon the tariff, upon the Sub-Treasury and all other great questions under consideration, in duce us to believe and hope that party spirit has lost much of its animosity, and lliat hereafter there will he less of that feeling which has heretofore been so disgraceful to both parties. Although Miller's famous Tabernacle in Boston has just been destroyed by fire, let us hope that the world is not yet near its end. Coast Piracies?'The Harnagat Pirates. "There be land rat* and water rat* ; land thieve* and water thieves?1 mean pirates." For many years prior to 1K36, the Barnagat Dis trict of beach, on the coast ot New Jersey, was re nowned for the piratical propensities of the inhabi tants, from Squire Piatt, the wreckmaster, and his boon companions, the parson and doctor ol the in] tenor town, down 4p the fishermen who lived upon the beach, through all seasons, watching for, and sometimes ensnaring, their prey. Many a stout ves set has left her bones upon the beach. The Squire, the traders, tavern-keepers, and farmers, were wax ing fat on their ill-gotten goods. From the ships General Putnam and George Canning, wrecked in lM#, upwards of <$40,000 worth of goods were stolen; and, although the goods were often seen with the thieves, the underwriters made no arrests. The undertaking was deemed too hazardous?ail feared to begin. One schooner, with ahold full of goods and pine wood on deck, went on a trading voyage to the interior of North Carolina, and over $15,000 was realised. The thieves were em boldened by the apathy of the government and the Board of Underwriters, and their success was un interrupted until 1SS6. Many tales are told of the diabolical means used to decoy vemels to their rum. Fearful tales are related ot horrid murders of pas sengers and manners, .but none ol these charges have been proved. The dead tell no i*le?. There were to many awful accounts of this coast, extant, some of which were of course exaggerated, that the name of Barnagat was heard by the stoutest sea man with a shudder?the place, and all belonging to ' it, were to he avoided us a pestilence. In August 1835, Captain John Earl, and Mr. Jas Bergen, were appointed agents for aotne fifty insu. ranee comimniea, and took active measures to break up the horde of "moon corners," as they were not inaptly called, on account of their tiatred to the honest face of that planet. In October, 1835, the schooner James Fisher, bound hence to PluladeL phis, was stranded near Barnagat inlet. Captaiu Hirani Meeker was sent by Messrs. Earl and Ber gen to her assistance. The cargo was all saved, and placed in a tent tor safe keeping, until it could be tent to New York. Meeker was a religious nun, and believed in praying for and exhorting the thieves, lie collected a large congregation of this graceless gang, in front of the tent, and whilst one pirty appeared to listen with great contrition and de votion, their partners cut open the back part of the tent, and almoat completely emptied it ol the goods, which they buried, or carried off in small boats.? Meeker's preaching tailed, but he found out many of the thieves. In the following November, they robbed the schr. Henry Franklin, Captain Hatch.? The captain was a shrewd Cape Cod man. Squire Plait took charge as wreck master, and set a guard, but Hatch guarded against the guard with fire arms, and it was only when Piatt persuaded him to go to a house near at hand, to " note his protest," that the thieves got a chance to steal about a hundred bags of cofiee. Capt. II. F. Sclienck was sent as agent to this schooner. The doctrine he preached wi^ more efficacious than that ol Captain Metker.? He marked out ihe thieves and their plunder, and returned to New York lor advice and legal assistance. Capt. Hatch, in New York, identified some stolen bags of cofiee, and Mr. Bergen procured the aid of Police Officer Huntington, who arrested two ol the thieves in New York. These men turned States' evidence, and gave details to the names of about sixty thieves?some of them bearing the chatacter of very honest men?and the property stolen by each individual was described. The Collector placed a Revenue Cjitter at the disposul of Messrs. Earl and Bergen, to proceed to the neighborhood. General Darcy, the United States Marshal for New Jersey, was extremely prompt with his deputies. Sheriff Miller, of Freehold, was put in requisition, and Capt. Schenck entered Barnagat Bay, with his wrecking schooner. About forty of the thieves were arrested, and much of the property was reco vered. Several of the thieves took to the pine woods, and " camped out" all through the winter. The head thief, " Judge Piatt," was not easily cap- j tufed, showing fight with lire arms; but General j Darcy deposited him in prison, at Trenton. Forty four were indicted ; nine were tried and convictedf ? and they were followed up lor about two years; the last of the party pleading guilty, and paying fines i amounting to about #5,000. Piatt was sent to Slate prison for two years. Money could not save him. When the last fine was paid, there was a general j rejoicing and drunken frolic, in which the Chair 1 man of the Finance Committee lost the written list ol the names of his constituents. This now Temains in the hands cf Mr. Bergen, to enable him to give them a second call. It contains the name s of many of the "first families, "who little suspect that they are known to have contributed to the fund rather : than be exposed. This was a most salutary lesson, and the under writers of Philadelphia and Boston, made Bergen, Earl and Schenck, handsome presents. Some of the New York companies proposed to do likewise? but did not. Up to within Uie last three years, (the insurers having now some agents, who carry no terror to the thieves,) everything, except liquor, has been safe on the beach. Such piracies were at an end. Now they are boldly renewing their old trade, and in one respect, are worse than they were ten years since. Then there were some who would steal, but would not see men and women perish within a stone's throw of the beach. The meaner thieves are now in power, and neither the dictates of humanity, nor the desire to earn a lew ' dollars, honestly, could induce them to risk a wet j jacket to save forty valuable lives, for they could, ! with impunity, steal more than they could earn, and without risk. j Every month will make these men worse. Where ; now is the energy that will break them up for another i ten years?making them fear the jaws ot the State prison? If the underwriters will not punish and banish the thieves, they should, with the assistance of the U. S. government, maintain, for eight months every year, a guard upon the coast, with surf-boats and men, and supply houses for wrecked seamen and passengers, short distances apart. Let them place the boat stations ten miles, and the houses five miles apart?preserving the boats, houses and pro- ( perty, and protecting llie men by good laws. Lives would he saved?piracies would be prevented?and smuggling would decrease. This is worthy of im mediate attention. We rejoice to find that the Shipwreck Society have this affair in hand. The underwriters will tind this a more profitable business than that of trying to deprive the New York pilots ot their hard-earned pittance. This is a labor in which the Chamber of Commerce may be permitted to speak out, for once, without dictation Irom any one. The public watch the action of these insurers, in relation to their duty in this emergency. The public may judge of the power and audacity of these outlaws, when we Btate that Mr. White, the county coroner, has declared that lit dared not keep the property tared from the dead boditt within five miirt of tin beach, for hit lift would be cn dangertd. Let the Shipwreck Society employ good men, and they will render invaluable service. The New York pilots have desired us to express their gratitude to Mr. Samuel W. Thompson, for saving the body ol Capt. Thomas Freeborn, and in preventing his body from being robbed. We deem it proper to stale that the wreck masters and men,north of Squan Beach,are honest, fearless, skilful, and humane?affording a good example of what " wreckers" should be at all times. We wish they could civilize their neighbors. Shall this affair die a natural death, or may we hope for a thorough sweep among the thieves, and their entire dispersion 1 Stkam Shu- Cambria.?This steamer will leave Boston on Sunday next, for Liverpool. We under stand that about two-thirds of her berths are en gaged. Movements or Travellers.

C ; M Whaaton, St. Louis Funeral or Ma. Fake born, the New York Pilot ?It having beea announced that the funeral of Mr. Freeborn, who was drowned ia the late gale, would take place At three o'clock yesterday, long before that hour his friends began to assemble, to pay the last tribute to the deceased. The solemn and sad rites being performed, the procession was arranged in the following order:? Independent Order of Odd Fellow*, headed by their Mar shal with bi* emblem of offlo*. The Matter Warden* of the Port of New York. Old Pilote. Young Pilot*. Soya belonging to the Bloaiom. and other Pilot Boat*. Captain* of Veaiel*. Officer* and Member* of Insurance Companies. Clergymen, in robe*. Pall Bearer. Pall Bearer Pall Bearer. Tell Bearer Citizen*, To the number of two thouiand, two and two. The proceasion moved at half-past three o'clock, and proceeded, on a slow walk, up Orchard to I Grand street, thence to the Bowery, along the : Bowery to Stanton, down Stanton to Forsyih, and I up Forsyth to the burial ground. On reaching the entrance to the burial ground, the Society of Odd Fellows formed an avenue, through which the corse was conveyed, and on going through the gate, the > minister commenced reading the solemn service tor the dead?"I am the resurrection, and the.life," &c. The coffin was deposited near the vault, and the minister continued the service; after which the corse was lowered to its place The brother-pilots oud near relatives of the deceased gathered round the vault, and during the service, we observed many of the hardy survivors in tears. Those brave fellows who have battled with a thousand storms, and braved danger in every form, could not resist the impulse of nature, and had to give vent to the overflowing of their hearts. It was a melancholy satisfaction to the surviving friends of the deceased to see the very large concourse of mourners tha1 attended him to his resting place, and it shows that he cariied to the grave with him that respect which was manifested towards him when living. Thus the lamented Freeborn, after being rooked and toss* ed on tiie ocean during life, at last rests at ease in his narrow home. " Hurl'd on the beach, behold, they gasp! they bleed ! And groaning, cling upon th' III il live weed; Another billow bnnt* in bouodleu roar! Arion (inks! and Memory view* no more! Ah, total night and honor here pre tide!

Again tho di?mal prospect open* round, Tn.-> wreck, the shore, the dying and the drown'd; And nee! their hold no longer they retain, They sink, o'erwhelm'd, and never rii* again!" ItEql'iERCAT m Pace. At a meeting of the New York Pilots' Associa tion, held on the morning of the 34th of Feb luery inst., James Mitchell wa* called to the Chair, and Edward Hope was appointed Secretary.?The Chairman announced the death of Captain Thomas Freeborn, who periabed at bis duty, aa pilot of the ship John Minturn, at 8quan Beach, New Jersey, on Sunday, the 15th init ; and the mournlul, but consoling, intelli gence that hie body had been recovered, and was to be buried at 3 P. M., from the bouse of his afflicted mother. Alter many members had given a feeble expression to their feelings, the following preamble and resoluti:n* were passed unanimously Whereas, it has pleased Divine Providence to take from ameug us?whilst enjoying the full vigor of man hood and health?our associate, Thomas Freeborn, who has been endeared to us by every tie that can bind manly hearts together?and whilst recognizing in him the finest gpecim ui of that strict integrity in business relations, and that lofty bonor in sccial intercourse, which ever marks the valuable citizen, the good ion, and the kind brother, we have still the melancholy pleasure of know ing that he lost his life in the high peiformance of his duty as a Nsw York pilot?a lot that may beiall us ail but for which we can only hope, that Uod, in his mercy, will permit us to be as well prepared as our beloved as sociate, who baa gone before. Resolved, That the member* of this Association will attend the lunerel, at the proper time and place. Kesulved, That we will wear the usual badge of mourning, for thirty day*, a* a mark of re.'pect to onr de ceased brother. Resolved, that a copy of the preamble and resolution* adopted at this meeting, be ibrwarded 10 his afflicted family. Resolved, That these resolutions be published. JAMES MITCHELL, Chairman. Edward Horr, Secretary. The Express Forwarding Business ?Few peo ple at a distance are aware or the great business that has sprung up in this city, within a few yeara, in the way of expresses, nor of the great induce ments they offer to those having packages and parcels which they wish delivered with punc tuality and despatch, at the most distant points of the country. This business is a crea ture of modern times, and is characteristic of the American people ; for in no other country, that we are aware of, is there any of the kind. We have frequently mentioned their usefulness to the com munity. Before the establishment of the different express lines that are now in operation, there was no way of sending packages of bank bills, coin, or any other valuable article, except by steamboat or stage ; and it frequently happened that when despatch was re quisite, the articles sent in this way would not reach j their destination until days, and sometimes weeks, had elapsed, after they had been sent on their jour- | ney. These occurrences are now never thought of, and a package can be sent, and will reach the place to which it is directed, in the shortest possible time, : and with a regularity unknown a few years since. Atnoug the first in this great undertaking, is Livingston Ac Wells's, which first commenced run ning to Albany, but now is extended over the whole North and Northwestern country. Leaving their : depot in this city, No. 10 Wall street, it proceeds daily to Albany, over the Housatonic railroad, thence to Buffalo, up the greut lakes to Detroit, Chicago, 1 Milwaukie, and other lake ports. At Albany it con- ! nects with Virgil Sc Rice's line, and proceeds to Montreal, in Canala, and thence it spreads throughout the province. Then, we have Adams & Co.'s express, which leaves the office, No. lb Wall street, daily, lor Boston, and extends to Portland. It connects with Philips Ac Co.'s express, and runs to Hartford, New Haven, and Springfield. It also runs to Philadel|>hia, and connects with Sanford Ac Shoemaker's express, ! which runs thence to Baltimore, Washington, ' 1 Wheeling, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Acc. In addition to these expresses, we have Gay's ex press, running daily to Boston, and which is likewise an excellent hue. Bigelow'u express runs from Boston to Fitchburg, Keene, and other places in New England. It is owned by Mr. Bigelow, who has lately become so celebrated in running the late express for this paper, , and who made the shortest time on record, between | Boston and New York. There is, in addition to all these expresses, still another, owned by Gorton Ac Co , which starts daily from the office ol Adams At Co., and runs to Providence and us vicinity. These expresses have all been undertaken within a few years, and do a handsome and profitable bu siness. Tliey are all conducted by men of the greatest honor and integrity, and are entitled to the confidence of the community. In addition to safely I delivering all packages entrusted to their care,with punctuality and expedition, they undertake the col- i I lection of claims, protesting notes, and all other ! business committed to their charge, on the most reason able terms, and in a satisfactory manner. No one but a resident of the c.ty, can form an es timate of the aggregate amount ot busineaa done by , these express companies. Their ditlereut offices and ; ware rooms are most extensive, and order and re- I I gularity are apparent in every thing connected with ' them, from the greatest to the smallest. Every ar- i ttcle received by them is marked, and on receiving it, a bill of lading or a receipt, is given, thus , holding themselves rc.-pon-ible tor its safe delivery. Goods, merchandize, |>ackages, large and small, in fact every thing, are in this way received and sent to all part* of the country wuh the greatest ; precision and regularity, and in the most expeditious , manner. The benefit which they aflord to the pub- | lie is beyond calculation. We suppose that these lines will soon be extend ed to Oregon at the West; the pole at the North; New Orleans at the South ; and Halifax at the East. Indeed, they will now forward parcels to any of those , points. Theatricals. 1*4ma Theatre?Richard Bnnafey Sheridan's mas. terpiece, " The School for Scandal," wti performed lait night, to a very respectable audience. It t rare treat for the lovera of the genuine drama?indeed, for all who have good taate and aouui judgment in the great art. The management deeerve praise, not only for their se lection of auch pieces, but for the perfection with which they are produced. This famous comedy, we are bold to affirm, never was better performed at Drary Lane or Covent Oarden, than it was last night at the Park. Miss Barnes received great applause, and she well de served it: for though she will doubtless improve and ?often a little mora the tones, of her voice, yet she is a good actress, and will become, we doubt not, as great a favorite with the public at her talented mother was. Mr. Vandenhc tf displayed great talents on this occasion, If a ma? " ' * *~ rnd showed himself a master in genteel comedy. Mr. Dyott played Joseph Surface admirably. The Sands Family succeeded the comedy. No words can convey an idea ot the surprising feats of these beautiful and in teresting children A universal sympathy was excited throughout the audience in their favor. There it beau ty, elegan'e and loveliness in their appearance and manners, while their feats are astounding and wonder ful. We hope they will receive more encouragement from a generous and sympathizing public. It is impossi ble to see these beautiful children without loving them. To-night, Misa Charlotte Barnes appears as Julia, in the "Hunchback"?Mr. Vandenboff as Modus. When the managers select such admirable pieces, and the actora perform them so well, the public should show a corres ponding sen1 imont-do "d sentiment," as Sir Peter Teazle has it?a corresponding peiformance of encou ragement Bowiesr Thcatkb.?The new grand equestrian drama, entitled " Arasapha, or the leat of the Datawares," wee performed last evening to a crowded houae. The drama was preduccd, for the first time, on Monday evening, and wc hare rarely witnessed a more sterling play, or moro enthusiasm displsyed by an audience. " Arasa pha" is the production of the popular dramatist, Mr. Bannister, and is certainly one of the most btilliant com positions of this author. The plot is bold, varied, and of thrilling interest?the scenery new, and truly magnifi. cent?the acting of the most finished character. Iu fact the tout entemhle is grand and imposing. John R. Scott* one ot the most versatile and popular actors upon the stage, sustains the principal character, and infuses into the performance all the startling energy, onthusizam and dignity of bis own splendid genius. Mrs. O. Jones, in the delineation of the character of the horoiiie, displayed talents which we have never before given her credit for possessing. The lovely Indian, in her liandi, was as finely conceived as it was beautifully executed. How perfectly in keeping with the character?how beautiful were the attitudes sbe threw into this part-how grace ful and expressive ! The transitions from joy to sorrow were finely given?now her voice is full of tenderness and sweetness?and now of grief, jov and sadueis?love and hate, despair and revenge, by turns take pos session of her bosom ; and alt were given with a power and faithful delineation, worthy ol all praise. The other haractera were well sustained, and the cur tain fell upon the last act amid universal shouts of well merited applause. The new drama will have along and brilliant run. Every play-goer will be delighted with it, and all who can appreciate sterling acting, beautiful language and effective situations, combined'with scenic effect, will go to see it. "Arasapha, or the Last of the Delaware*," will be repeated this evening, with other entertainments. Howa's Ciaci's at Palmo's ?The splendid horseman ship of Madam Macarte, together with the never ending novelties produced at this place, draw nightly very large houses. Since the reduction of the price of admission, it is visited by families and childien, who appear delighted at the feats of the equestrians and the jokes of the clown. Leopold de Meter ? The great pianist, will give his second concert in Philadelphia this evening. The elite and musical of the oity will certainly be in attendance. City Intelligence, Cosstitvtional"Refor>i.?There was a snug, cozy little meeting oi the young democracy last evening, at the Jefferson House, corner of Hudson and Charles streets, called for the purpose of discussing the subject ot Constitutional Reform. Tho call of the meeting was signed by a great many influential persons of the party, but, with the exception of Lorenzo B. Sheppard, E?q., they all thought proper to absent themselves. After the meeting was organized, Mr. Sheppard addressed the meeting on subjects connected with the Convention for revising the Constitution, end the matters necessary to be brought before that Convention. lie dwelt forci bly on the subject of negro suffrage, and contended that, on no acyunt should the right of suffrage be extended ?color to our colored population. He then insisted that there should be a r striction in the Constitution prohibiting the granting of exclusive privileges to any set of men ; thai the canal tolls should be reduced to the bare expen ses of kcoping the canals in repair ; and that the legisla tive and judiciary departments of the government should be separated. He considered it improper that the Court of Errors, composed at it is oi the Senate virtually, should have power to pats on the constitutionality of their owu decisions, and portrayed the evils resulting i from the inefficient manner in which Justice is dispensed . in our circuit courts, on account of the small number of ! circuit Judges. He likewise contended that the Legis lature should be prohibited from loaning tho credi of \ tho State in any manner, so as to create State indebted ness. Mr. Tryon next addressed the meeting in much ! the tame strain. When he had concluded, a series ot re solutions, expressive of the sentiments of the speakers ) und of the nieetinc, was proposed and passed ; and the meeting adjourned. Abolition er Capital Pcsiisshst.?Ysitttdsy eve- I ning, a meeting for the abolition of death for capital of- ; fences was held at the Tabernaclo, in Broadway. Long ! before the appointed hour, every part of the church was crowded, and, as usual, the ladies far outnumbeied the i feutlemeu. The meeting waa organized by calling | 'ice Chancellor McCoun, to preside. Vice Presidents and Secretaries were next appointed; alter which Park Godwin, Esq , came forward, and made a few brief re marks, the substance of which waa, thattha place where ' they held their laet meeting, wet too small, and they had since taken a larger bouse, where their meetings - would in future be held, and which would entail addi tional expenee on the society. Mr. Burliegh was then introduced by Mr. Godwin, and that gentieman'a ad dress occupied an hour in its delivery. He commenced : by saying ho hailed the announcement just made by his i friend, with great satisfaction and delight; that an nouncement showed the increase of their numbers, and the increase of their numbers showed that the feeling of ; abhorrence for the death punishment was spreading with de length unexampled rapidity, through the whole length and breadth of the land ; be also hailed the assemblage of the great multitude ho saw before him to-night, as an earnest of their final triumph, and the prostration of the gallows He said, we who are laboring to break down fee gallows, that relic of a barbarous age, and rid the statute book of penal enactments, believe that we are only doing that which Ha, who appeared eighteen cen turies ago, commanded to be done. The remainder ol the gentleman's address contained no new feature?it consisted of the same arguments adduced at every simi lar meeting held in this city, for the last five years. The Kev. Mr. Baulch next addressed the meeting; be stid, ho rose to make a statement and not a speech ; he then gave e short erpaei of the finances of the society, and exhorted hit hearers to contribute liberally, to ena ble them to carry on the glorious work in which tbay were engaged.

As the snow freezes at night tbo sleighing may continue several days. Snow ox the Hoors.?The present condition of the roots of houses is certainly a very dangerous one for pe destrians. Passing aloDg West Broadway yesterday, we saw an avalanche of snow come down from a roof, almost directly upon the head of a poor fellow who was a littfe iu advance of us.

Albert Johnson end William Johnson, were next placed at the bar to ana werfor having cut off the pocket of Mrs Burge, of No. 44 Roosevelt, and stolen its con tents, amounting to the kum of $10 or upwards. From the testimony elicited from Mrs. B . it appears that the last named of the acoused parties, (who by the way had scarcely seen half as many summers as the faie com plainant.) nevertheleaa, had for sometime past paid par ticular attention to Mra. B , who on the occasion of his frequent visits had supplied him liberally, or rather al lowed him to help himself to coflee, cakes, ciiars, pea nuts, lie., by the sale of which articles she endeavored to earn bd honest penny. That on the occasion of one of these visits, when accompanied by his brother, William committed the cffence in question, and Albert stood by and laughed at the joka. For the defence it was contended, that since the alleged theft, Mra. B. had not only bestowed upon her lover abundance of loving kiisee and occasionally furnished him with a little extra pocket money, having handed him a couple of dollars wherewith to make a suitable appearance with her at the theatre. These assertions were more than Mra. B. could bear, and she tartly assured the Court that she had neTer allowed any liberties to be taken with her, that she bad not entertained an idea of marrying either of the accused, being fully aatiified that all they wanted was her money. The Court not exactly approving of the course pursued by the accused, sentenced the faith less lover, William, to spend lour months on Blackwell's Island, and hia brother Alfred three months.

For the defence, it was shown that there were three beds in the rooms, all occupied at the time ; that he could not have committed any inch assault as charged againet the eccused. without the oonaent of the complain ant or knowledge of the other occupants of tha room ; that on the occasion referred to, both Mr. Roll and Pflef far bad occasion to leave tha room for a bnaf period; and that on returning in the dark, Pfleffsr had, by mistake, get to the wrong bed, but on discovering his error, in stantly withdrew and sought out his own quarters The Court, however, adjudged Pfleffer guilty of the assault, and sentenced him to pay a fine of $26, and to stand committed until the same do paid.
