JVEW YORK HERALD. NfW York, Saturday, Jlarfli HI, 1846. The Werkly Herald. Thm publication, will be ready for delivery at eight o'clock this morning. In addition to the general news of the week, in cluding die celebration of St. Patrick's Day, it will contain :he important intelligence from Europe and Washington?the great speeches ot Sir Robert Peel, and the Hon. John C Calhour.?the former on the new commercial policy ol Great Britain, and the latter on the foreign policy of the United S'ates ? Also full particulars ot the terrible battle in India, re sulting in the loss ot over thirty thousand lives. Single copies, in or out ot wrappers, sixpence each. The New* tr?om Karope?The Oregon Question The advices from Europe have had a te ndency to depress business. Every thing remains in a very quiet slate, and no one knows what course to pur- ; sue. We can but anticipate more unfavorable news by the next packet, which will not be due ior at least a fortnight; and until her arrival, there must exist an apathy and uncertainty, both in political and commercial matters, any thing but desirable. We have received no political advices suHicient ly definite to have any influence upon the move- j ments of Congress. If there has been any inclina tion in the minds of any members of the Senate to put otl action upon the Oregon question, until after the arrival of the steamer, there has been very little j gained by procrastinating. They have no more da ta to work upon than they had before. Very unfor tunately, the arbitration correspondence did not ar rive out until just before the steamer of the tih inst. left Liverpool, and those who were anxiously wait- i ing returns, giving the effect of the refusal to arbi trate, have been most seriously disappointed. It is possible that the notice resolutions or the com promise resolutions, may lay on the table of the Senate some time longer, before they are finally acted upon. There is evidently a disposition among those members of the Senate in favor of com promising upon the Oregon question, to wait the receipt of decisive accounts from the other side, in relation to the recent correspondence between Mr. Buchanan and Mr Pakenham. Another lortnight can be very easily consumed in debating the question; and when so much depends upon the action of the Senate in this matter, it may be perfectly justifiable to delay final action as long as possible. We publish to-day an article from the lAmdon Timet, in relation to a compromise the two nations might agree to, without sacrificing a particle of the honor of either. The Times of the ,3d instant pub lished the news received by the Patrick Henry, but made no comment. Other papers, however, par ticularly the London Standard, had commented upon it in the severest terms. The Standard is the organ of the Government. The fact that arbitration had been flatly refused, was known. This tedious affair appears to remain involved in as much mys tery as ever. After all the debate and correspond ence on both sides, .and in both countries, the ques- | tion is, probably, no nearer a settlement now than it was twenty years ago. While there exists a disposition on the part of a , certain party in Congress to keep this question open, I until it can be disposed of properly and decisively, j there is another party deairous of keeping the whole j affair open for years. The leaders of the war par- j ty having taken a position for the whole of Oregon, wish to rest there; having placed themselves before the country as chainpions.of its rights, they have no wish to be deprived of the benefits of that position by an amicable, or any other settlement of the ques tion. It would be doing the States some service if I the British government would adopt decided action, and bring the difficulties to a crisis, in some shape, at once. It would be well if England would take it out of our hands, give the notice, declare its ultima turn, and then, at the end of the twelve months, j let circumstances regulate future action. Tiie New York Pilots.? We have obtained the following note, addressed to Mr. Turnure, by Captain Wood, of the packet ship Columbus. It speaks for itself. " Sabdy Hook, Msroh 18th, 1846. " Mr. Wk. TuaituaE, Pilot Ship Columba*. " Si* At w* yesterday grounded on ttaa southern edge of the Spit, 1 freely express myself as being per- 1 fectly satisfied with your ability and attention in con ducting the ahip to sea. " Being at the wheel myself, and closaly observing your timely caution and exertion to prevent the ship from taking the ground, I do believe no man could hare prevented this occurrence. " I am respectfully yours, "AurasD A. Wood, " Master Ship Columbus."' It is as well to mention, however, for the sake ol truth?an article rather scarce in parts of Wall j ?tieet?that the Columbus was the first ship in charge of Mr. Turnure that has touched mud, sand, \ or any other hard or soit substance, excepting water, in twenty years. And in order to set the public aright in the state ments made on Wednesday in the Courier, we will merely mention that the ship Angelique was never in charge of Mr. A. Upson. To make all clear, too, in the midst of the fresh ets in all parts of the country, will any of the Jer sey pilots inform us whether or not the Fidelia touched once, twice, or not at all, in going down the harbor on the 17th inst ? Also, whether she was taken safely to sea on that day, as stated in the Courier 7 We ask these simple questions for the sake of truth. We believe that both the Columbus and Fidelia went to sea on the morning of the 18th inst. " By thsir fruit* 1st them be known In addition to the above, we have another false hood to nail to the counter. The Courier blames a New York pilot for stranding the ship Memphis. ( Here is the contradiction : " New York, Merch 10,1846. "To thc Pilot or the Ship Memphis: " Dear Sib I have, with regret, *een en unjuat charge made againat you for grounding my ahip, in bringing her from see, end I now atate, in justice to you as e pilot, that the touching of my vesael wea entirely owing to tbo man staUoneain the chains, with the lead, who gave /?!#? soundings. Yours, kc.., " D. M. Bviybrr, Master of Ship Memphis " Shipwreck Rescue.?Fublic attention is at last fully aroused, upon the subject of saving lives and property, from vessels wrecked at the very portals of the greatest seaport. Some humane and skillful individuals hare tatken this subject in hand, with commendable zeal, and have presented a good plan for public consideration, in order that improvements may be made upon it, if possible; and it ia expected that Congress will see the necessity for on immedi ate appropriation of a sufficient amount. It is intended to build two telegraph station houses, at proper distances apart, on the Jersey shore. To place surf boats, having the improved life-boat principles of buoyancy, some miles apart a six pound signal gun?rockets, Uke those so successfully used on the sea-coasts of Europe, U> throw small lines on board of wrecks. Each station house to be provided with men, vehicles, horses, fuel, whale lines, hawsers, Vs. Vc ; and the bousee to be f ully manned for six months in the year, and aately kept through the summer months. Careful estimates have been made, and it is found that lesa than 91800 will build one station,' furnish complete, and maintain and p?y the men for aix months. This amount ia far below what haabeen anucipated We consider the Mvtug of Uvea as the greatest advantage pro posed ; for one fife?such as that of the pilot Free born, or Captain Starke?would be worth the cost of such a project for a century. But an immense amonnt of revenue will be saved to the country by having good men, always ready for action, on the beach. This is a measure in which whiga and democrats can join ; and we invite the Wall street preae to leave off cavilling at the New York pilots, whilst they attempt to assist one honest and real object of uhlic good* 1*?W York Packet Ship*-Their Puh(M. We gave, on a recent occasion, an account of the fnwages made by the splendid packets composing the Dramatic Line, and owned by ?. K.Collins, Esq., of this city. We have since then taken some pains to get a correct account of the performances of the vessels composing the Clack Ball Line, and owned by C. II. Marshall, Esq , of this city. The reader will see that they warrant the praise wa have so frequently bestowed on our packets. ?'LDu" Blac" *all Lint." Sl'4from New iork. 1814. Arr ?

The Black Ball Line of packets was established in the year 1820, and the line commenced with vessels of 300 tons, which were the pioneers of the packet business. These vessels were then considered quite large. The ships now composing this line are from 13 to 1400 tons, and among the most splendid naval structures in the world. The Columbus was withdrawn some time since from the line, and her place will be taken by the splendid ship Columbia, which will be launched from the yard of Mr. William H. Webb this af ternoon at 3 o'clock. The Columbia is a noble ship, and /eflecta credit on her public spirited owners, as also on the builder. Mr. Webb. She will be under the management of Captain Rathbone, a gentleman famed for making short and agreeable passages, and for his urbanity and gentlemanly deportment. These magnificent new Bhips show that the ocean steamers do not injure the business of the " canvass bicked" packets.

W In .Sed^J ^h. points tms tide of Montgomery, Alabama. All this appeared^very well to us, but unfortunate ly the statement is an incorrect one. We learn from the Post Office in this city, that this new ar rangement went into effect on the 15th inst., but that now all is again in confuaion, and the mails depart as usual Irom this city. It would, perhaps, be as well for the mercantile community, if the Post Master General would perfect his arrangements before he attempted to carry them into effect. Our merchanta would then think that there was some hope for the future. Mow they are in a very uncertain state of mind. New Hampshire Erection.?Full returns have now been received from the whole State, with the exception of six towns, which, at the last election, gave the democratic candidate for Governor S9 ma lority. Williams has received 26,822 votes; Colby, 17,689; and Berry, 10,909, besides 82 scattering. The whole vote of the State will most likely exceed 66,000, a larger poll thaa that of the last Presidential election. This goes to show the great excitement which has prevailed among the people. Woodbury, the democratic candidate for Congress, has gained 1,001 since November. The House of Representa tives stands 126 democrats, to 111 whigs, and 21 Hale-itee, and two unknown. There are two demo crats in Coos not yet heard from. Spiritual Wipxrt ?A lake Akron paper has the following document'"Much as we have heard of this doctrine of the 'Latter Day Saints,' we had no idea that our quasi Milleritea had progreaaed so far as devel oped in a trial in this place last Monday.before Esq Con vane. Some months since,e man named Almon Dwight, toft hit family, in Anbnrn, N.

Y., and aa a apirituni pair, they have since lived in Toronto, Canada, removing thonoo bach to Now York, from thore to Ctovoland, and on the 17th they came to residence of the Rev. Mr. Plckards, who, knowing aUthis, kept them till their arrest. On the trial, Mr. | Pie herds refuted to be sworn as a witness, but at length offered to tell the story, (the above in substance) under the penalties for perjury Pickard and Kidder juetiiled toe conduct of the defendants on the around that it was i consistent with their doctrine, which would permit a 'spiritual matrimony without sexual connection.' Jns tico C onverse, however, differed from them in opinion, and ordered the defendants t# And hail in the sum of 900 dollars each, on the charge of adultery." Great complaints exist in the different counties of Ohio of tho havoc made hy dogs among the sheep In Warren county, it ia estimated that 300 are thus de stroyed annually, and that in the mate the damage Is >*0,000 by this mode of destruction alono. A farm in Warren county lately lost fifty sheep by doga in one l WW Theatric*!!. Pare TuihDon Pasquale," and tha aooond and third acta of tho " Bohemian Girl," war# performed laat erasing for the benefit of Mrs Seguin. Wo think we never heard the troupt iiog better than on thia oooeaion. The quartette, "A1J Unbounded, Ac"in " Don Pasqa*le," wne rapturously applauded, and the magnificent duetto, " To the garden quick decending," was given with all its usual brilliancy. The serenade, too, was loudly en cored. This evening " Don Pasquale" will be repeated for the eleventh and last time, with the third act of the " Bohemian Girl." Those who have not witnessed Do nizetti's most beautiful composition, would do well to embrace this opportunity. On Monday evening " Le Brasseur de Preston" will be produced for the first time in this country?the musio Being by Adolphe Adam, the composer of the " Postillion," Bowsar Thcstbe.?There was another very full and fashionable audience last evening at the Bowery. The hue's popular tragedy of "Pizairo," was first presented, j in which Mr. J. R. Scott particularly distinguished him- ' self as the gallant and ingenuous Rolls. Mr Davenport ? was no less successful as Pizarro, and Mr Clark drew down very general applauM in bis delineation of Alonzo We, however, thought him rather too energetic in his scene with Pizarro. Mrs. U. Jones enaoted Elvira in a manner deserving the most unqualified praise. "Ivan hoe" was again repeated, and seemed to ezcite quite as much interest as when first introduced to the patrons of the Bowery. It has bad a remarkable run. To-night the comedy of "Voting England," "Ivanboe," (for the last time) and the petit comedy of "In Every Body's Mess," is to be presented. A more popular bill has not been announced during the en'ire season. Bowery AMrHtTHCATSE ?One of the most unprece dented and the most remarkable novelties that has ever been presented to an American public, will be produced on Monday night at tha Bowery Amphitheatre. The dancing horses, waltzing, tableaux, and fighting pomes introduced into this country through the enterprise ot Mr. Sands, who purchased them at an enormous expense from Kranconi's equestrian eatabUahment in Paria, will make their first congee on this occasion; in addition to thia announcement, a very atrong and talented troupe of equestrians w .11 also appear, including McKarland, the wonderfulsomersat man; Joe Pentland, the clown; Ll throp, Gardner, Mraely, and a score of others. Harmonists at Palmo's Opera House.?We found a highly delighted audience at Palmo's last evening, to witness the agreeable entertainments of the original Ethiopean Harmonists, who have secured the Opera House but for a few nights, previous to their early de parture for the South and West. They present a rare medley for this evening's performance. Musical Entertainment.?There is to be a musical entertainment at the Jane street church, next Tuesday evening. We understand that extensive preparations are making, to have the affair a splendid one. Welch, Delavan A Co.'s National Cikccs, Phila delphia.?This establishment, we learn, it nightly graced by the beauty and faahion of our sister city. The entertainments are of the most attraotive and beautiful character ; and one of the best troupei of equestrians in in this country is envuged to render everything brilliant and effective. The National Circus will shortly leave for Washington and Baltimore. City Intelligence. Rav. Dm. Burke.?This talented clergyman delivered a very convlnoing argument, lait evening, in St. Colum ba's Church, in support of the Roman Catholic dogma of the real presence in the Eucharist. The fame ot this worthy clergyman is spreading fast, and each evening he lectures, his church is filled to overflowing. The neat lecture will b? delivered on Thursday evening.? We understand the handsome sum of $304 was collected in his church on St, Patrick's day, which will go a good way towards furnishing the interior of the church. Ladies' Fair.?A grand fair is to be held at Niblo's Sa loon during too coming week, in aid of the suffering ?oor. We learn that the most fashionable and wealthy idies of the city are the originators of this movement, and that the tables of rich goods, confectionary, ItC., are to be furnished and sold by them. The letters at the post office will be written by the most illustrious among our poets and literary men, and the whole affair is to be got up in a style of unprecedented splendor and magni ficence. Tom Fltrr.?Perhaps ne man in this community is ? better known to fame than Tom Flynn. As an actor, a wit, and a ?' good fellow," he will ever be remembered. Who does not recollect his pleasant,sparkling sentences^ which seemed to come from the inmost recesses of his heart?his merry, joyous face, and careless, easy man ner? These were in days gone by?adversity, grim faced poverty and sorrow came ana blighted the fair, and, indeed, brilliant prospects ripening for the future , and the ton vivant became lost to himself and all that makes life dear. He has now recovered himself, how ever?been reclaimed from his errors, and joined the temperance society. On Monday evening next, he will deliver an original lecture on temperance at the Taber nacle, and all his former friends and boon companions are invited to attend and listen to the sober second thoughts of the light hearted " Gossamer." CoaottRR's OrricE, March 30.?Death from Burning.? The Coroner held en inquest on Thursday, at No. 60 Crosby street, on the body of Phebe Anderson, born in Trenton, N. J., 65 years of age, who came to her death by a burn, caused by her clothes accidentally taking fire. Verdict accordingly. Police Intelligence^ March 31. ? Stealing a Jacket.?John Smith was ar rested last night for stealing a cloth jacket worth $3, from the 8ailors' Home, Cherry street, belonging to an ? old tar called George Jones. Locked up, by Justice j Taylor. Jt Funny Charge.?Louisa Benedict was arrested ieet I night, en a charge of stealing a cloak, valued at $13, belonging to John Benediot. It appears that Louisa stays in a den ot iniquity kept by old mother Williams, in Manhattan Place. John entered the house to see the folks, and it being warm, threw off his cloak in one of the rooms ; Louisa, being rather short of change, took Johnny's wrapper and "spouted " it for $4.60, and then handed John the ticket ; this movement did not exactly please John?consequently he made the above com ]>laint. The case was finally dismissed, tbere being no intent to steal. Johnny must take better care of his outer " Benjamin," in future. Burglary. ?The dweLing house, corner of Washing ton and King streets, was feloniously entered yesterday, and a room occupied by Miss Taylor was enteied, by forcing open the door with a chisel ; a trunk was also broken open, and plandered of a gold chain and brace " all of let, and $90 in gol'd coin, with all of which the thief made good his escape. Petit Larceny.? William Paterson was arrested yester day for robbing Henry Jurgins of three $1 bills and a spurious $3 bill ; the last bill was found in his posses sion. Locked up, by Justice Osborne. Spurious Coin.?William Cheeven and William Miller were arrested on a wsrrant charging them with passing spurious Mexican coin. They were taken by police man Purdv, of the 11th ward, before the United States Marshal for examination. Petit Larceny.?Joseph Zeller was caught last night in the act of stealing an umbrella, worth 50 cents, be longing to Mr. Leagrist. Locked up, by Justice Roome. Correction.?In alluding yesterday to the " fleecing" ill known " crib," we uninten of a countryman at a wal tionally committed an error, by stating that the occur rence took place at 138 Church street, when it appears that the door of the " crib" in question is not numbered at all; we therefore cheeriuUy make the correction, not wishing to cast the sins of one, upon the head of another. Court of General Sessions. Before Recorder Tallmadge, and Aldermen Dodge and Tappan. John McKeon, E?q District Attorney. March 30?Cast of Yankee Sullivan aliai Janet Sul livan and otheri, indicted for riotous conduct, &c. In this case the Juiy found 8ullivan and Watson guilty of an assault and battery, and Peter Brown guilty of an as sault only, and the Court directed Sullivan and Watson to pay a fine of $36 each; and Brown to pay a fine of $10. Trialfor a Grand Larceny.?James Cur ran and James Dickson were then placed on their trial for a grand lar ceny,in having, on the evening of the 3d instaDt, entered the dwelling of Mr. Goodsell, No. 138 Elm street, and stolen a quantity ofclothing, he. alleged to be worth $60, the property of Mr. John Sloat and others, at the time boarding in the house in question. It being soma what doubtful whether the value of the property stolen exceeded $35, the jury found the accused guilty of a pe tit larceny only, and the court sentenced Dickson to be confined in the city priaon for the term of two months, and Curran in the penitentiary for four months. Another Trial for Grand Larceny?Catherine Farley was then put on ner trial for a grand larceny,in stealing, on the 93d December last, $60 in money, and a quantity of jewelry, the property of Mr. Exra Smith, at the time referred to a resident at the Second Ward Hotel. There being no evidence adduced that the accused committed the offence, the jury acquitted her. Trial for an attempted Grand Larceny? George Burns, alias Byrnes?indictment for an attempt to commit a grand larceny on the 10th of February last. Fiomthe evidence adduced, it appears that tha prisoner entered the premises No. 16 Sixth Avenue, occupied by Mr. Hii liker, and proceeded to plunder the apartments, and on a member or the family entering one of the rooms, found a large quantity of clothing, bedding, Ice. strewn about Up floor, and on looking under the bed discovered the accused, who was then arrested. The jury, alter a short consultation, found the accused guilty if nnattempt to commit a petit larceny only, and the Court sentenced him to be imprieone J in the penitentiary for the term of three months. Fdk Jury diecharged.?The Tetft Jury was then dis charged for the term, and the Court adjourned until to morrow morning. Circuit Court.

By a series of diplomacy, if thia queation of tenures is not settled by the Legists- ! ture, it will be voted into nonentity ! These antfrent < delegatos are pledged to subserve the Interests of the ; tenantry by every means in their power ; there is no | doubt of their election. A very brilliant affair came off last evening a) the I Townsend House, in South Market street. The Hiber nian 8ociety gave a splendid aupper. Governor Wright . and ex-Governor Seward were present; toasta were ' drank in beaming, gleaming bumpers ; witty, funny and satirical things were said, and three cheers given for Ould Ireland and llepeal. His Excellency Gov. Wright made a beautiful and pertinent reply to a toast given in patriotic allusion to his distinguished greatness as a ci vilian and a Governor. Seward also was toasted, and feasted, and flattered, and he responded, though he was wide in his remarks. Every body was contented and delighted and uprorious. The dear Emeralds demonstrat ed that while they loved their mother country much, they loved America better. Nevertheless, they could join enthusiastically in the fine couplet " Long live their glory, united and free, The imperial West, and the Queen of the Sea." The epicuranse Anally gleefully adjourned sine die. The House was occupied to-day In discussing a bill similar te the one pending in the Senate, to materially reduce the salaries of nearly all the officers connected with the State departments. The proposed reduction In the expenses of the government by these means, amounts to over $13 000. There is no doubt of the pas sage of the bill. It fixes Mr. Attorney General's salary at $1,000 per annum, with $5 per day for extra services. Van Buren will resign, it is said, if the thing passes. The 8enate passed the bill relative to duties on goods sold at auction in New York. The bill was amended previous to its passage, so that one quarter pet cent duty is imposed upon domestic goods sold in this manner. The prominent features of this bill have been published in the Herald. The Senate sent it down to the House for concurrence, and it was referred to the committee on trade and manufactures, iu the House. The Senate in committee then took up the several bills amendatory of the poor laws in some few counties?they are of small consequence. 8enator Porter, of Cayuga, was sitting in the ante-chamber to day, eating an apple, when, throughsome cause, he injured the' nerve of one ! of his teeth, and instantly fainted. His situation was supposed to be critical, aa his appearance was lifeless.? He revived upon the application of restoratives. A bill to extend the time for the erection of the Gosh en and Albany Railroad, was introduced in the Senate to day. The Senate held an afternoon session meeting, at 4 P. M., and, in Committee of the Whole, took up the bill | authorizing the New York and New Haven Railroad | Company to extend their road thirteen miles through i Westchester county,to the Harlem Railroad. The roads j will connect at or near Williams' Bridge, in Westches- 1 ter. The companies, by the provisions of the act, are j bound to commence the junotion line within two years. \ The committee passed the bill, and reported It to the Senate. Then the Senate went into committee upon the bill authorizing the Canandaigua and Corning Railroad Com pany, to commence the construction of their road, ae ' soon as $300 000 is subscribed, and ten per cent up- : on the subscription paid in. The committee passed the bill, and reported it to the Senate. At 0 PJVI., the Senate adjourned. The Houae holds two sessions per diem, and adisposi- ! tion is evident in the Legislature, to rush business \ through without compromise or arbitration. It is night! The stars glisten in the quiet sky, and ' the pale moon gilds a hundred domes ana minarets and towers with her eternal beauty ! The House is in sea- { sion ! A member is speaking with locomotive energy ; upon a railroad bill?hazarding with the utmost sang , /Void, breath, physical power,words, and all other orsto naua.ti rical paraphernalia,upon one tremendous effort to scratch the initials of his autograph in a niche of the temple of | fame; uncontaminated by previous scratches His elo quent tones, an 1 his Demosthenic action, awake these- I ven sleepers ! They stalk into the chamber bootless, ; and with cardinals oh their shoulders I A stray gleam | of moonlight pierces an embayed and curtained window, eclipsing gas and foiming a coup d'oile of start ling magnificence, Jtc. The House ia in Com- j mittee of the Whole, and the question before ; the committee is upon t ie bill to authorise the i construction of a railroad from New York to Alba ny. Mr. Worden, of Ontario, had the floor; bis remarks ] were denunciatory of New York business men and New York policy; he contended that one of these directors on this projected railroad cheated the federal governmnt out of the Smithsonian bequest! He contended that N. York would be peculiarly benefitted by this railroad; and ha declared that as evidencing in all her policy a careless inadvertence concerning the public prosperity and the public weal, she waa unworthy the benefit that would acorue to her. Morris, Tilden, Chat field, and Perkins, followed Mr. W. At 10 P. M. the committee rose and the House adjourned. Ai nisy, March 19,1846. Navigation?-Militia Syeten??Slate Convention?State Agricultural Society?Delegatce to Convention. The South America came up thia morning at 8 A. M.; the leave* to-day at 2 P.M. A petition waa received 1 in the Houte this morning from Stephen Allen and ! others, of New York, dissenting from the amendment proposed to the new charter of New York, by the Com* mon Council, be. The petition waa referred to the New York delegation. John Young, of Livingston, has re turned j Col. Young, ol the Senate, is still unable to at tend to his duties ; Joshua A. Spencer, it also absent; his remarkable anti-rent report is in the hands of the printers, and will be received in a few days. The tenants are anxiously waiting for legislative action. A great number of reports from committees were received in the House this morning, and the entire morning hour was occupied in receiving these reports. Various bills were introduced; among others, bills to completely annihilate and exterminate the militia syatem in this State. Great effort* are being made by secret ciroular cliquet and secret societies for effect upon this coming But* Convention It will be a melee of hostile elements and representatives of cliqueo and factions of all kinds. The abolitionists are vigilant, and working tremendous ly. Their business is done secretly, but the force they will bring in this Convention for the extension of suf frage to the negroes will be almost overpowering, I be lieve . Senate in session?exciting debate upon a proposition to print the annual report of the State Agricultural So ciety?deep interest apparent for the State stock market and for the rate of State securities, end the expenditure of State moneys. Proposition to print opposed with rancor and acerbity, with vociferous vehemence and with terrillc resolution. Fancy farmers and fancy stocks were denounced. It was urged that the printing of this report was called for by amateur or fancy farmers. The discussion became rich, iJared Wilson, Esq., of Caoan daigua, Ontario county, sitting in the lobby, and scratch ing the pomatum on hi* silver hair, and laughing hearti ly at the course of debate, which " never runs smooth " in this chamber. Estimate of the cost of printing made ?fixed at filOOO; an ameant which might save the State from repudiating the interest on a small debt,ln an enter i gency. Lester, of Ontario, proceeded to read several 1 extracts from the report?to wit i certain silver cups | which had been awarded to the beet native bull can ! He proceeded to demonstrate the encouragement which I this society extended to imp I s I em sate in the bleed of I bull calves, kc. kc. (AllUods of laughter.) The Se nate ultimately took the queotiou upon painting thia do i cument, and it was carried. The auction bill, which passed the Committee of the Whole, has been amended again, and was referred to day *o the Finance Committee to report complete. A glorious debate occurred as to the special orders before the Seiute-what wee the special order, and what business the Senate should take into consideration. Finally, the Senate weat into the consideration of pri I vote claims. I invoke energy and despatch in the ! disposition of these private claims, and I retreat to the Aasembly chamber. A terrific combat occurred last evening, at a meeting 1 of the democracy in the 4th ward of this city. The meeting waa called to nominate delegates totheoounty < convention: the radical and conservative democracy mingled promiscuously, and a terrible fight ensued; , claret was spilled in abundance i peepers were smashed: proboscises mangled, and beads broken ; the radicals ' outnumbered the conservatives, and they came oil vic torious. It was very like a meeting of the democracy at Old Tammany. At half past 1 P. M., the House is in committee of the whole upon private claims The Henate is ditto. At Itwo, the boot leaves, and I close. The weather con tinues to be peculiarly lovely , a great number of ben of both Heasee ere afaoeat. More of the KrtrteU. [From the Albany Citizen, March 19 ] The ice having broken up clean through, the wmlera have abated, and there i* a prospect of the immediate commencement of bneineei on our wharvaa. Seneca Lake waa swollen high with the freihet on Monday, and damage wn apprehended. The rain ol Friday night waa accompanied by thunder and lightning at Schenectady, and; the watere of the Mohawk rose fifteen feet above the ordinary level. The ice gave war about 4 o'clock P. M . on Saturday,but dammed at the bend near the lower ferry; thiacaueed a reflux of the water which inundated the south-western part of the city; and forcing a way over the canal bank* near the flrat leek,two milea up the river, the entire flat tanda for that diatance, on both aidea of the river, were completlv aubmerged. A ?mall building oeeupied by a colored family in Water at, near the ialand ferry, and aome tavern sheds belong ing to N. D ?Graff, were demollabed by the ice. In that part ofcity the water waa from three to four feet deep on the firat floora of the bulldinga, and conaidarable damage waa done to cellar and atore gooda. [Correapondence of the Albany Eva. Journal ] BntoHiMTon, March 10, 1040. We have had the bigheat freahet ever known. The ! new bridge, 6 milea above Blnghamton, acroaa the Che- ! nango, ia awept away. Tbia ought to be aufflcient, If there ware not other good reaaona, to defeat the bill now pending in the Legislature to divide the town of Che- 1 nango. Membera cannot, if this matter ia fully explain- ] ed, do the people of the north part of the town the in justice of voting in favor of division. The bridge across the Susquehanna, at Blnghamton. ia partly gone?and ' the bridges at Great Bend, Windsor, Ninevah, South Bainbridge and Bainbridge, across the same river, are I awept away.

Peter Shear, Mordecal Corsaw, and Eraatua Agard, Jr., three notorious offenders, escaped i from the jail of this place on Saturday night. Noxwich, March 1??7 P. M. I The Guernsey bridge, across the Canaaewocta, is car- I ried off clean. Tba North Norwich bridge ia injured, so ia the Oxford village bridge. The bridge<our milea be low Oxford, across the Chenango, is gone, as ia the one live miles this aide of Bioghamton. The White Store bridge, and the bridge at Mount Upton, across the Una dilla, are gone. So is the Bainbridge now bridge, and aeveral others acroaa the Susquehannah. AU the bridges across the Otselio river, from Otaelic to Willet, are awept away, as ia tba case with a large number of small bridges across the smsdler streams. The damage by the freshet in this section must be immense. [From the Albany Atlas, March 18.] The ice opposite Hudson atarted on Sunday afternoon, carrying away all the spUes in the "dug way" across the flats, and the abutments which were buUt last spring to protect it lrom ice. The tree which has stood at the east end df the " dug way" for more than twenty years, was swept away with the rest The ateamer Fairfield, laying at the dock, was somewhat injured in her ma chinery, which waa undergoing repairs, by the ice for cing her wheals around. [From the Springflald Republican.] During the ruin of Friday night iaat, the ice in the Connecticut river broke up, and passed off without cau sing any damage, the water not being very high, and the ice being much weakened by the previous warm weather. On Saturday and Sunday, much ice passed down from a bote, and the river ia probably open from South Hadley Falls (at least) to its mouth. The water rose rapidly on both the above days, but did not reach a dangerous height. The rain of Friday night and Sa turday, swept off the balance of the anow in this vicinity, which the mild weather of the previoua fortnight had left. March, thus far, has been a favorable and mild month. [From the Newark Advertiser, March 19 ] The freshet on the Delaware was more destructive than our first reports. The Trenton JVtws eays 600 men will be required tor a month to nut the Delaware divi sion of the Pennsylvania canal in navigable order from Eaaton to Reiglesviile. The canal is almost entirely swept away. The aqueduct at Lumberville has disap peared, and another lilted entirely out of its plaoe. From New Hope to Teylorsville the canal 1s also very much injured. Three dwellings have been carried off at Reiglesviile, and another from Harvey's island, above Yardley ville. [Correspondence of the North American ] Hirmshuru, March 19.?I have, just a minute before the starting of the say, that I was with the 8tate Treasurer and the Governor, and that they stated to me that a competent engineer had just passed over the line of canal from Columbia to Clark's Ferry, and had esti mated the whole damage on the line at sixteen thousand dollars ; and (he Treasurer thought that in three weeks the line would be passable throughout. The Governor thought it might be longer.; [From the Harrisburg Argus Of the 18th ] The Board of Directors ol the Harrisburg Bridga had a meeting yesterday, and resolved to establish a steam ferry to the island, to connect with the remaining part of the Harrisburg bridge, which is said tf bo bntlittle in jured as far as can be observed from the high water. We learn by a gentleman from Columbia, that toe bridge at that place has not boon injured. The spans of the Harrisburg Bridge struck it in their descent, and pasead under It without doing any injury. The bridre on the turnpike, at McAllister's, has been carried awayj also, one of the arches of the stone bridge over Clark's Creek, at Emeline Furnace, and all tha bridges up to Clark's Ferry ; also, the bridge evor Clark's Creek, on the Halifax road, near the Hon. William Clark's, and tha new bridge over Powell's Creek, on the north side of Peter'* Mountain, and every bridge as far as Millarsburg. [From the Pittsburgh American, March 10.] The flood reached its highest mark between one and two o'clock on Sunday morning. At daylight it showed 23] feet on the Monohgabela Bridge pier. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon it had fallen to 3-2 feet, and now at 11 o'clock this morning, it is 18 feet. The present rise has been entirely from the Allegheny, the Mouongahela being at the time on the fall. The ioe came down early on Sunday morning, and continued running throughout the day. The water aurroundod many of the houses In the lower part of Allegheny, but wo near of no serious damage done. The Mooongahela remained an apparent ly calm apectator, without current or commotion, of the raging of ita sister stream, as she passed in her strength and power, bearing her annual tribute to the ocean. Tne passaga of such a column of water, with a motion ao rapid and a power so resistless, has much in it of grandeur and sublimity. Common Plena. Before Ju'ge Ingraham. March 19Edmund Jonee ve. Joseph GuXick.?This wii an action to recover damage for an alleged aiaanlt and bat ery on Mra Jones and her aon. Plaintiff was at the time of the alledged treepasa, owner of the Second Ward Hotel, and the defendant ia Mr. a lick, the mili tia fine collector. It appeared that aometime previont to February, 1945, Mr. JoOea'aon waa fined by a Court Mar tial $4 or $5, and a warrant waa granted againat him and put into the handa of Gulick for collection.

Jamea Omiara, the bar keep er, who waa aetting in the bar, aaked Go lick what he meant by moving the chair* and table* 7 The latter re Elied, that he waa gaing to take them away. The bar eeper came from behind the bar, and took hold of the door and again aaked what right he had to take the fur niture. He then aaid, that he had a militia fine to collect, and that he waa taking them away to sail them to pay the fine ; Gullck waa then Informed by the bar-keeper, that Mr. Jonea waa aick in bed, and if he, Gullck, would aend up, Jonea would pay any claim there might be againat the property; at; the aametime one of the men who aaaiited in the aeizure, held the kaeb of the door, and puahed it violently in the barkeeper'* face, and aaked him if he meant to reaiat At thia time a crowd collected in front and inaide the houae, and Mr. Edward Jonea, the plaintiff** ton, and Mra.

Gnlick, it ia alleged, then clinched her, and aboved her violently into the hall, and attempted to jam her between the wall and the door. The delendant'a counsel relied on the fact that hia client waa in the execution of hia duty, under legal proceaa, and that he wa* reaiated.
