The steam ship Hib-rum, and hull a dozen packet hips, arc now due .it this port, and ut Boston The -tramship is in her thirteenth day. We may expect her news by to-night's or to-morrcw'B matl?per chance by our magnetic keeled news clipper. ,?<?gru Suffia)jr-.Noveuieiilt of tl.e Kafistlcs. The two pnncipa1 parte into which the elec tors of this Bute are divided, have taken their positions end oublishee the principles upon whicn they desire the Constitution to be nniend ed by the Convention write*! will meet in June next Judging from the course o| the whig party since the Lst Presidential election, we considered that the lead*, a of that party were coquetting with the abolitionU-ts and approachra ' ths.r doc'nues, sotnatthe 15,000 vote, which they control, might be added to the whig vote la this way, the whigs could control liie u ?vermn> nto! the State. We uave, uu several occa-ious, predicted the con sequence thai would inevitably ensue, if the Em pire Bute should, ut any time, get into the poises sum ot itie abolition fanatics, who would preter to have thisglorious Union, this sublime ex auple ot mankind, following the impulses unplanteu in theui by their Creator, and governing theniselves, disuni ted and split up into petty mid despicable fragments ot republics, rather than that the woolly headed and vacant minded blacksoi the South, should remain in what t.iey please to c dl slavery. This Union is now openly proposed by the Fou rierue ui.-ian in this city, who'h comes out boldly and pledges itself to struggle h>r equal and univer sal suffrage, and othei political rights, to all citizens, and no exclusion on account of birth, pro(>erty, creed or color. Thus we see the mask thrown off, and the detestable cry of negro suffrage raised as a rallying cry for the election ol delega??s to the Con vention The long cherished project of the aboli tion fanatics to strengthen their forest, in order to hold the balance of power between the two great parti-e, and then unite with either, eo as to control the State?this favorite idea is at last carried out and about to be applied In this way, then, the election for delegates assumes a most important character, and it will be for die jieopls to say, whether the negro?inferior as he is in every respect, to the white?on whom the God ol Nature has implanted a murk ot distinction, never to be ef faced?ou wlioai education, and every other means of moral enlightenment have been tried in vain? whether a being of this nature is to have a hand in controlling the destinies of this mighty nation, and to have the rtg/U of sitting in judgment over the lives and property of our fellow-citizens. Let us see what would be the effect of such a proceeding. The abolition vote, united to that of the colored people, would iorever make the Stale ot New York an abolition S;ate. All the floating negro popula tion of the country would immediately flock in to take advantage ol the privilege of voting, and thenceforward we would have the Empire State the theatre of an unceasing warfare upon our South ern brethren, the. result of which any man can fores Then, indeed, would the North be arrayed against the South. From that time forward our legislative halls would resound with the cries of emancipation and free suffrage to all negroes, and the wild schemes of the visionaries who compose the aboluiou party would be attempted?even the dissolution of our glorious Union. Now, if all the good which these fellows say i were oertaiu to follow from free suffrage, are the j risks to be. incurred worthy of being tried I Are wt; whiiiiK to jeopardise our noble heritage for the j sake of a tewnegrocs, who are in their natural ele ment tn the South I Are we to incur the risk of dis mantling the temple ot liberty, every stoue of which has been cemented with the blood ol the purest patriots that ever lived, and the danger of arousing civil war tu the Southern Suites, lor the objecis whose hen- fit is contemplated by this pro- j posed reform 1 *Ve trust not. Neither can we see i any reason to entitle the colored people to any such privilege Why put thein on the footing of citi zens 1 Tney have never performed the duties otciti zoum. They do not perforin military, fire, jary, or any other civic duty. But these enthusiasts, urged on by the abstract idea that the nejro is as good as the wrote, and therefore entitled to the same privi leges, would give them a share of them, even at the risk ot self-sacrifice. We cati hardly believe that the people are willing to follow them in their mud career, and hope that a den raiuied stand will be taken by the voters at the next election to put down this movement, winch cannot be looked upon in any of er light than a spe cies of fanaticism. From the lamentable instances resultiug from emancipation in other parts of the world, w'e think that immediate bursting ot the bouds of master and slave, in the 8 uihern coun try, would be attended with dreadful consequences to the negroes themselves. Thrown on the world, as they would be, and left to their own resources, they would die ot starvation, or else fill all ihe jails in the State. It is far better for them to remain in a statu of servitude, tor we believe it is their appro priate sphere It, however, emancipation shall at any rutur ? time he granted, the negroeH need not than* iff- abolitionists for their exertions. It will be a work ot tune, and brought about by the moral force t f public opinion. And we are con vinced that the unholy warfare of these mastics for a tew years past, has retarded the progress of emancipation considerably. Nkw Division of Paktibs?Th? great iasuts which haw been c.ist int?> the political cuuldreu du ring the part fe w years, bid tur to act like some chemical agent, and precipitate to the bottom that which haa heretofore predominated. In '44. a great mass of the uien who in '40 supported Har- j neou, voted for Polk, while many who had stuck to ] Van Buren to th?- last, indisposed with the Texas agitation, and too timid for bold movements, std'd with the conservative principle, as exemplified in its embodiment, Clajr. Well, the Poik party succeeded?tiiey elected j their President, a majority of the United States Senate, and a majority of the House ol Represen tatives. The President has administered the gov ernment iu a manner satisfactory to all moderate, aoimd-thinking, no-party men, but his originally warmest supporters are now breaking up rapidly into factions. The Southern Polk-men go for a " masterly inactivity" on die Oregon question? the W ?ti-rn Polk-men go for 44 40, nnd " nocom prnni -? hut at the cannon's mouth"?while tfv* Nortre-rn Po.H-ruen go lor 49, even if war be r.e cesa,.r,, and as much more as can he peacefully se cured Chit o| the conflict which is thus going oil among the vanoua sections, a new party, or perhapa new partiae, mast inevitably spring However the question may be decided, ad cnnnot and will not be pleased. The whigs are equally diatracted on this quesuon j on' section of their phalanx ta somewhat disposed to go to W r for 54 drg 40 mm., while th? other would rather loan the whole thau tire a gun. No nutter how the question ta decided, as between ih* two nations, we must have a breaking-up, and a new organization of parties. There ate numbers of diasainfied men of inrtuenoe in each of tha present parties who would gladly participnte in such a move ment, and there are two or three of the great minds of th- nation, in the Senate and si?ewk#ke who are preparing to lead it on Democrat and whig are likely t? . come obsolete terms, and most probably the new diviMnna of our political world be classified, like those in England, ns conservative nod radi cal, or some euch terms Ocaae >t*am .'Ships ?R lB thought that at least haJi a dozen ocean steamers will be built in this city his year A. 1'aan .4?iit?A paved mrs?t in this oity ThsTi'.*t Act Kxvivel ?Every reader of history will remember those time* o! priesily and tyrannical dominion, when meu were literally forced, under severe puna and penalties, to conform to the pre? dom nnting priests, who had the away at the time. These men were bo determined to bring all men to their wav ol thinking, and make them submit to their peculiar viewa and dogmas, that when they hud the power in their handa, they invented what waB ca led the tee: act, by which contrivance ot bigotry ,ind despotism, no one would be admitted to any office or place?no one couid be allowed to serve Ins country in any capacity?unless he underwent the tea , and was found to be submissive and conforma ble to the ruling bigoted faction. Elizabeth's tyran nical and bloody church, which has ever been the enemy of toleration, and the persecutor of all diasen ?era from its tedious formalities, was the great irn poser of these.infamous tests. We find, however, that the same spirit prevails among all priests,and they are alwaysseeking means of submitting the world to their authority, by impos ing some test or other. Who would imagine that in this country they would ever attempt, in this dsy, to set up a test act1? And yet, in fact, they have made the attempt, though under cover, in a new form, and in a moot artful and disguised way. Their scheme is thisThey have set up what they call temper ance societies, and having succeeded in enlisting the pistons of the multitude in favor of them, by which in- ana they obtain power through the assent of iium b- rs, they have now started these temperance soci eties as a sort of engine of power in their hands?as a means of drawing people into submission to them and si tting a brand of disgrace upon those who do not join it) worshipping the image which they have s't up In a word, they have attempted to tum these societies into a " test act." In Connecticut it is, that this movement has taken place, and it is now proposed there, ojienly and boldly, by the fanatic fac tion, that no one shall be elected to any office?no one shall serve his country in any capacity?unless he belongs to the temperance cause and patronize it! This is literally the test act revived, and the real correct meaning of it is that no one shall live?no one shall get along in the world?no one shall be deemed a respectable or decent man, unless he ac knowledge the power and submit to the authority of the ruling priests of the day. Such are the arts to which an intriguing, vicious race resort to fix their empire over the minds, bo dies and purses of the community. Delay of the Mails.?Owing to the extraordina ry freshet in the Delaware river, which has over flown the country around Bordentown, the mail from the South, which was due at half-past ten on Sun day night, did not reach this city until yesterday. The railroad track is said to have been covered with water to such a depth that the fires in the loco motives were extinguished. Opening?The rivers and the spring trade. Important Naval Intelligence.?The Spanish d iet, consisting of one irigate, two steamers, and three schooners, left Mayaguez, P. R., on the morn ing of the 23d ult., destined for the Spanish part of St. Domingo What we may Expect?Clean streets about the secon a Tuesday in April. Crime and Wealth ?It has become a fact so no torious, in this country, that it has passed into a proverb, that there is no fear of conviction for crime in the case of one who is possessed of wealth. It has been our boast, that the broad sgis of law sheltered ana protected alike the rich and poor, and ail sorts and conditions of men ; and that he who broke a rule inscribed on its tablets, be he rich as Croesus, or poor as Lazarus, would be visited with thr /tenuity it prescribed. But there have been so many cases which have come under the immediate notice of every one who has at all watched the proceedings of courts, that one would be a fit subject for ridicule who should assert the foregoing proposition. A man is accused of a crime. 11 he is rich, the best and most cunning legal advisers are called to his aid?men who could almost twist the gnarled oak straight, and who find not the slightest difficulty in twisting points of law to suit their case. If necessary, the trial is delayed, and when the case oMnes on, the legal accumen of the criminal's advisers can entirely misrepresent the evidence of witnesses and blind the eyes of the jury. But it a conviction is given, a new trial can be granted through some legal technicality, and, after a time, the criminal esca)>es. Such cases have come under everybody's eye. But if the man is poor, friendless and penniless, his chance of escape, be he even innocent, is very poor. Without weulih oi influence, he is tried, condemned and sentenced, in double quick time. There must be something wrong in all this ; and we fancy much of the fault Id s in the legal profes sion Instead of its members being as they should be, the guardians of the law, their whole study and aim seems to be to find paths by which it may be ev ided, and a large majority are ready to do this, if well paid fot it. Our present system of the unequal distribution of law, needs "reforming altogether," and we hope will yet have it. Speed?The fine steamer Traveller, going through the Sound at the rate of twenty nules an hour. The Election of Delsoatks ?The election of delegates to the Democratic Mayoralty Conveniion, takes place in all the wards to-day. It is expected 10 be an excited contest, for its leugih and breadth. In the Bud?The nominations tor the ensuing election in this city. The Pilots and the Board ok Pilot Commis sioners ?We have seen it mentioned in several pa pers, that one of themerch mts pilots, who recently run a packet ship ashore, has been suspended for six months, by a body of men calling themselves the Board of Pilot Commissioners. It is authoritative ly announced thul the individual who did not under stand Ins business sufficiently to keep a packet in deep water, in a clear day, will not be permitted to take charge of another vessel for six months. When we take into consideration that the pilotage of this port is now perfectly free to every one?that i boy can take charge of a vessel, if he can show to the captain the outward gear of a pilot?this suspen sion apjiears not only singular, but rather absurd. It is said that after the abolition of all pilot laws by our Legislature, and before this Board of Commission ers warmed itself into existence, the person now suspended piloted out all the veeeels he could get. There was no one to suspend htm then, and there is no one to do it now. This individual, with this aw ful suspension hanging over his head, has as perfect a right to pilot vessels now as he ever hnd, and hence the angularity of his suspension. We look upon tins whole matter in one point of view only. The merchant pilot, as he is called, had no right to run a ship ashore in broad day light, and the Board of Pilot Commissioners have about the same right to prevent him from runuing other vessels ashore, provided he oan get them. The Hudson River Own.? We learn from Mr. Beach, of the Northern mail line, that the river is open to Albany The steumer Columbia will leave at 8 o'clock this morning for that city. Pillino Us?Our hotels aud large boarding houses,with strangers and traders. A^othsr Pacset Launch ? The magnificent picket ship Columbia is soon to be launched from 'U ' *he will be commanded by Captain John R&thbone,lately 0f the Oxford. With such a commander, the Columbia will become a great favor ite with the oeean traveller Stwrwots ENTRSTRxwa.-The contemplated Railroads trom the Mississippi to the Pacific ; and from St Petersburg, to Pekm and ihenceto Canton Acrrivs?Our wharves, where the packets are dis charging their cargoes. 1'hk Peoorem of Rmorm ?A bill has bcni in troduced by Mr. Afbertson, into the Assembly of this State, allowing the supervisors ol the city and county ot New York to tax the unfortunate people to the tune ot #961,102 for contingent expenses ot the city, and the sum of #428,000 for police expens es, and the further sum of #191,198 for deficiency in the taxes ot 1846; and a further sum of #174 968 for lighting certain parts ot the city, and #40,000 for a nursery, probably tor the Aldermen, and for erecting nn iron teuce around Stuyvesant square. This is what may be termed reform, with a ven" geauce. A tew more samples of this reform, and the tax payers had better give up their property to the Corporation at once, and they will save trouble hereafter, in the same way. Breakers Ahead ?It is expected that the fresh ets will knock down some ot the State stocks. We shall see. Votk Yourself a Farm ?We believe this is the watchword of a set of philosophers recently or ganized in this neighborhood. Although they have not made much excitement here, we see that the famous Mr. McConneli, of Alabama, member of the House of Representatives at Washington, has been imbued with their principles. That gentleman re cently introduced a bill into that House ot which the following is a copy :? A Bill to grant thr head of a family, man maid, or widow, a honrtlrad, not tMCidng nnt hundrtd and c'xty acrtt. Br it ennctei by 'he Sros'e and Houta of Representa tive-of th? United S'atej of America in Cor-jfrei' an- | aemMed That, from and -f'er the pottage of thii act, .t (ball ba lawful (or any man, maid, or widow, being the bead of a family, after making probate, to cultivate a fraction of land not exceeding oua hundred and sixty aorei. and raid person shall be. and ir hereby, authorized to enter, upon and after the payment of the rum of three dollHre and twenty-five rente, a traction of one hundred and aixty acres, as specified above, conditioned that aaid person shall declare his or her purpose in cultivate all or a portion of th<- : aid land for the period of five yeara ; Provided. That raid perron shall al?o declare that he or abe is wholly unable to pay the minimum price now fixed by law on the public lands: Provided, also, fhat said parcel of land shall inure to the benefit of t ?? fami- ! ly of the person entering the same, and aba 1 not be sub ject to levy, sale, or alienation in any manner whatever. This goes a little beyond the national reformers; for, instead of voting for a farm themselves, they will have farms voted for them. We are not pre pared to express an opinion on this bill, and will only say, for the present, that it was referred to the committee of the whole on the state of the Union. Frkshbts.?We may now expect to hear of fresh ets in all parts of the country. We already begin to receive accounts of a terrible one in New Jersey and Pennsylvania All the details will be given under the postscript head. Soooestion?Let the candidates at the coming election stump it through the city. Let the people know for whom they are to vote. Crowded?The Park and Bowery theat res. Thcatrlca Is. Pars Theatre.?The Park Rhone Alliantly last evening, with the loveliness and fashion of the city,who crowded the theatre to hear the dolicious music of Do nizetti's charming comic opera, and laugh at the rare jokes of Dan Marble, the prince of Yankee comedians.? A carping critic has discovered that " Don Pasquale,'> as produced at the Park has suffered abridgment. We have been favored with a perusal of the score, however, and can assure the public that not a note has been cut out in the representation of the Opera. It is performed exactly as written by the distinguished composer. This evening, Mr. Marble takes hit benefit, it being the last night of his engagement. A magnificent bill of attrac tion is otter d, consisting of a new musical jut il'eiprit entitled "Oregon," written expressly for Mr. Marble, by J. M. Field, Esq of St. Louis. Mr. Sands, and his ta jeuled and beautiful children, whase graceful, daring and extraordinary gymnastic feats attracted so much at tention at the Park o short time since, will also appear this evening, together with Mr. Dickinson, the celebrat ed comic vocalist. The comedy of the " Stage Struck Yankee." in which Mr. Marble" plays Diggory, and the drama of tho "Backwoodsman." will he presented We anticipate a fashionable and crowded house. Mr Marble is a man of true genius and sterling merit. As a deline ator of Yankee chaiactrr he stands unrivalled, being in truth on artiitr, not a mere taller of funny stories. a Bowexv Theatre.?The attraction of " Ivanhoe" continues undiminished. On arriving shortly after the opening of the house, we found the doors besieged by crowds, and to our astonishment, when we obtained ad mittance, the house was already full, and a seat hardly to be got}many, therefore, must have gone away disap pointed. We are glad, however, that the manager will not yet withdraw this delightful piece, which will bear seeing many times, and with which the public curiosity has not yet been satiated. This evening, the oppor tunity is again presented of witnessing the finest drama, and most magnificent spectacle that has graced the boards of any theatre tor a long time. Wednesday night i? the benefit of the worthy treasurer, Mr. Waldron. On this evening a rich and varied entertainment, specially provided for the occasion, will be presented to tbe public. We refer to the bills (or a programme of Waldron's benefit, and hope tbe public will not forget their faithful and deserv ing servant Meantime we hope yet to see " Ivauhoe" aguin, and are sura that there are thousands of the same opinion. Howes' Circus.?This capital company, with Madame Macarte, have been very successful at Baltimore. They are toon to visit Washington ; thence they will proceed to the New E,.gland States and to tba Canada*. Police Intelligence. March Id ? Rurglo-y ?
