Jackson being waitod upon to the chair, arose and said?I feel that I should bo doing injustice to myself if I did not express my heartfelt thanks for the honor you have conferred upon me. 1 feel the more grateful be cause it was bestowed unasked and unsolicited on my !>art. He said that he should have to rely upon their as sistance in the discharge of his duties, and after again re turning to them his thanks, he took his seat David T. Valentine, Esq., was then unanimously elorted Clerk of the Common Council, and Jacob Haves, Ksq. Sergeant-at-Arms. A committee of two, consisting of Aldermen Hart and Benson were then appointed to wait on the Mayor, and inform him that the Board was organized and ready to re ceive any communication he had to make. Aid Stoneall and Brady were appointed to .wait on the Board of Assistants and inform them that this Board was organized and ready to proceed with business. The committee to wait on the Mayor returned and re ported that he would communicate with them in a few moments. Soon after, the clerk of the Mayor appeared and handed to the President a message from the Mayor, which was read, and from which we make the following abstract The permanent debt of the city, redeemable from the sinking fund, May 3d, 1848, amounts to.. $14,363,609 00 Temporary Water Loan, in course of re newal 343,479 00 Amount of Croton Water Stock yet to is sue..... 380,000 00 Total authority for permanent debt.. $14,767,086 00 Less.

Tne estimate of the amount to be raised by tax in the year 1846, is as follows :? For general city expenditure within the control of the city authorities other than for Police and Lamp* $960,103 00 For Police 4-28,000 00 ror Lamps 174 969 00 Total for City and County expenditures, ?ubject to the control of the city author ities $1,663,130 00 Special taxation authorized by existing laws Floating debt redemption $ 50,000 00 Common Bchooli 181,603 46 Deficiency of interest on city deb' 363,000 00 594,603 46 ^ i . .. . $3,157,733 46 To which must be added the deficiency of tax for the year 1845 191,193 83 Making a total of $3,348,936 38 Or equal to 98 cent*, nearly, on each $100 of valuation for tax for all expenditures within the city and county. TSJr bf. *J<l?d the State tax of six cent* on each $100. If the police force should be increased by the-Com nJon * ^unc'' one hundred men,a* would be authorized by the bill now before the Legislature, the expenses for the balance of the year will increase the tax one per cent., and make the aggregate tax for the year 1846, $1 05 per $100 of valuation. In view of these facts, he urges them to seek to reduce the amount, and consequently reduce the sum annually drawn from the citizens in order that the (kith of the city may be maintained. One of the obviou* mean* for liqui dating the city debt and to meet the amount we are an nually required to provide, ia the (ale of *uch portion of the city property aa i* not strictly nccessary for city pur poses, contemplating, however, the reservation of such lands as public health may require when the densely populated bounds of our city may be limited alone by the island on which we stand. The estimated value of the real estate pos sessed by the city on the 4th instant, ox ^ elusive of wharves and piers, was $15,903 000 00 The value of that required under the re servation to be permanently held, is. . . 14,600,000 00 Leaving available for *uch other di*po*i aition a* the Common Council may order 1,303,000 00 Which produced an income during the year estimated at 4* 330 00 Or only about 3} per centum a* its value. He recommend* that the wharve* and pier* be sold un der salutary reservations, which he thinks will produce an income more commensurate with their value. He also recommends retrenchment of the current expense* and a thorough and equal aa*e**ment on the actual value of property, personal and roal, within the county, rather than to resort to new icheme* of taxation, uiuallv of an Inquisitorial nature, and which would result in an inter ference with the freedom of our citizens. He then al ludes to tho law before the Legislatuae to charge wharf age on merchandize, which he thinks would poorly com pensate for the trouble of its collection. In speaking of the Alms House and Penitentiary, he recommend* that the labor of pauper*. Icc., be applied to quarrying stone, that an experiment may be made in the method now adopted in Kurope of street pavement* The above are the principal point* of the meuace ? al though there are many othera which we are eonTpeil-d to omit on account of the great prenof other matter con nected with our relation* with Mexico, and our detailed report* of the Mferent religiou* anniveraarie* in our city. Pending the rMdhg of the message, a committee from the Board of Assistants appeared, and informed this B'ard that the Board of Assistants were organized and ready to proceed with busine**, which was properly ac knowledged. The reading of the meitage of hi* Honor the Mayor having been concluded, it wa* ordered to lie upon the table, and the usual number of copies printed. Aid. Stoweall, of the 3d ward, moved that the pre sent Board adopt the rule* of the former Board for its fu ture government, which was adopted. Aid. Memerole moved that a special committee be ap pointed to take charge of the public buildings on Black well's Island. Adopted, and Aid.

The fluctuating and vacillating currency, the ? criminal juxtaposition of warring northern and southern i interests, Annexation and Oregon, 'all threaten Jus loud 1 and deep. From these things have sprung this assertion 1 , that Tolk must be impeached--that he is imbecile an.l ef- | 1 ferainate?and that he is not competent to the great ; crisis! " Where is Clay T it is asked. " Where is any i body to save the Republic 7" : Relief will be afforded to tho New York Insurance Companies; they will be allowed to fill up their stock and begin business over. The Long Island Railroad Company must take measures to prevent a recurrence of Ares along their line, as a bill ! with this provision has passed the Legislature A fierce emtuti occurred in the Senate on the bill to abolish distress for rent. The emissary of the landed monopoly made his last desperate sally this morning ! Weep, Minerva '. weep, Pallas ! weep, Juno ! Weep, all the godsThis bill was taken in hand. Spcncer waited until a favorable opportunity, and then opened his batteries. He approached the subject for dissection, like a Bengal tiger in a jungle, or like an anaconda in a patch of long grass ; he is insidious?he is wily as a copper head, and acute as a Blackfoot?his eye is snakey?his form is good?hair iron-gre v, and combed well back arms long?ears small ; his upper lip is of remarkable length?inouth indicative of great decision: he stands six feet and two inches, with an enormous pair of pedes tals, not well mated, however?cause, a malformation of one of the boots. He said he was the friend of the tenant antry. " The friend!" Let him look at the seuso of this word, as it is defined by the heathen poets. Let him not assume to be '* the friend " of these serfs ;? such an assumption doubles his culpability. He said the proposition to pass this bill at this late period of the session was lachrymable; it appalled him; it froze his young blood, and " each particular hair," tic He de precated the perils to which the passage of this bill would subject the tenantry. Before a twelvemonth, he said, if this rent was not paid, every tenant must suiter eject ment ; he said it was " downright disgrace it was in volving the people of this State in interminable litigation. His argument was their* ; it was a heap of uncouth fan cy : it wa* abiurd and weak ; it had not any formation o r embodiment. In cases where the dearest interests of this nation have been the stakes, a kind of stoicism or apathy has characterised the conduct of Presidents of Ca binets and of the whole people. So upon this bill. The honorable senator was allowed to proceed without one at tempt being made to calcino and pulverize an argument so untenable and so clearly at war with the books.? Finally, after a vast deal of " hedging," the third section of the bill, a* it came from the Houie, was stricken out This section reads, " notwithstanding the tenant may have sufficient property, whereof the rent might have been made by distress, but for the provision contained in the preceding scctiotl of this act, the right of re-entry, fifteen day* notice in writing having been given, (hall be and i* hereby preserved to the landlord in all cases where the same now exists by law." A motion was now made to , strike out the second section of the Home bill, but the Senate adjourned to dine before a vote was had. This afternoon the Senate refuied to strike out the se cond lection of the bill. A section precisely simi lar in efl'cct to the section stricken out, and only dissimi lar in its phraseology, was offered and adopted and tho Senate ordered this bill to a third reading. The Senate then passed the bill to extend the time for the construction of the Harlem railroad. At 5 P. M., when we came away, Senator Clark was reading a very voluminous report of the committee upon the matter of fraud, said to have been perpetrated against the State by officers on the Champlain canal. This afternoon the business being done in the House is purely local. Wo have pointed out a stupendous error which renders long sessions almost inevitable. This is the fact, that this immense mass of local businoss should be adjusted in the locality where the questions arise, by officers to be designated by the State. It i* argued that the reform* proposed to be instituted, in so far as extrava gant disbursement* of the public money* i* concerned, will sleep the sleep of death. Stato. debts accumulate with startling rapidity. Infantile and impotent proposi tions are made, based upon Utopian hypothesis, to cancel these debts ; they arc of no effect. Here, then, is a mobo cratic people, which will not submit to taxation, living under a government which is breaking up an infinite amount of financiering obligations. How are they to be discharged I How docs all precedents in the history ol creation and of human governments tell us they must be discharged ? They force the conviction upon us, that thoy will be cancelled by standing armies and the coer cive taxation of the canaillr !!

On Saturday night at half past 11 P.M., a call of the House was ordered, a vast number of members hav ing gone off in a tangent. The House adjourned at 13 M-, with closed doors, one sergeant (of the regular army) having come back with a report that he could not make any arrests. This morning, as of course, the House met with closed doors, and these recreants were arraigned. The scene was funny; in brief, business in this House is performed without reference to Parliamentary guides; action on the affair was suspended, and the House pro ceeded to the third reading of bills. The bill to authorise the Mayor of New York to pro cure money by loan, to enlarge the Alms House passed. The Senate bill to authorise the extension of the New York and New Haven to the Harlem railroad, passed. The Senate bill to establish an asylum for Idiots, which passed the House on Saturday, was reconsidered, and the bill was defeated. The bill to incorporate the Offing Magnetic Telegraph Companv passed. The House militia bill, introduced by Mr. Fullorton, which fixes the annual fine for non-performnce of militia duty at seventy-five cents, will pass the Senate without doubt. Dot row, May 13, 1846. Cold Weather?Jl Melancholy Suicide and the Circum itancei Attending it?Arrival of Proftnor Espy? Capt. Slurgit?The New from the Rio Grande?More Informntion Retpecting the Cambria?A Small Mittake , ? Decline in the Stock Market, <J-r. We had no occasion for thin clothing yesterday. The weather was cold enough for all "useful purposes,'' and but for the clouds and wind, Jack Frost would have paid us a visit, last night, most unquestionably. It must be admitted, however, that the weather was comfortable in comparison with some we had last week. Cool weather, ! of the right kind, invigorates the system, and makes one feel full of life and energy. It is our abominable east wind weather that is so heartily detested, especially by i all those who are affected with pulmonary complaints, as , thousands of our citizen* are. A very melancholy suicide occurred in this city yes terday forenoon. A young man, named Geo W. Burn cam. a clerk in the office of the Mew England l'uritan, cut his throat from ear to ear with a razor, at his board ing house, in Oouch street. His windpipe and both jugu lar veins were severed. 1 have been partially acquainted with Mr. Burnhain for about a year, nnd have always re garded him as a person of very peculiar mental organiza tion. It is said, that for several months past, his more inti mate associates have observed that he has been subject 1 to fits of deep despondency, though ther knew of no par- | ticular cause for this state of mind, and supposed it to be ! constitutional. On Sunday he attended church, as usual, and spent a portion of the day in writing letters. Yeiter- { day morning he went to the Post Office and took the pa pers and letters from the box assigned to the editor* oi , the Puritan, but as he did not make his appearance at the , office, about 10 o'clock, Mr. Kish, the printer,went to hi* boarding house in auest of him. They had not seen him at the house since breakfast, when he asked them which they thought was the easiest way to die. Mr. Kish then proceeded to his room, and found the lifeless body lying on the bed with its face downwards, and the razor (till in his hand. Coroner Charles Smith was immediately sum moned, and held an inquest on the body?the vets diet being in accordance with the facta above stated. Several letter*, one directed to hi* mother, another to the young lady to whom he wa* engaged, one to hi* employers, and some to other per sons, wore found in his room. In these letter* he said there was trouble coming, which he could not meet, and hence the rash deed of self destruction. He wa* a member of the Rev. Mr. Kirk'* church, and a short time ago he seemed to be very much troubled in hi* mind, because, a* he *aid, they all kept looking at him, a* though they luspected he had been doing something wrong, lie wa* a native of Oroton, Vermont, where his parent* reside, and ha* alway* sustained a good reputa tion for integrity and morality. Professor Kspy has arrived in town, and is to remain ?ome time, to test hi* apparatu* for ventilating large buildings. He I* to try hi* skill first on the Custom House, which needs his serv ices very much. Captain Hturgis and the revenue cutter Hamilton have Anally taken their departure for New Bedford. The go vernment at Washington will gain no credit by this change. So long as our mercantile community and the public st large were satisfied with the services rendered by Captain Bturgis, end the government has been faith fully served, why should the gallant captain be driven olftothe imall town of New Hedford T Echo answer*, why T '1 he news from the Rio Orande, received yesterday, remove* all possible doubt as to the perilous situation of CJen. Taylor's army of occupation. The intelligence from that quarter is now devoured witli great avidity. All eyes ere turned to the seat of war, and not a few arc looking' with some solicitude to Washington, for a demonstration of patriotic and prompt action ou the part of the admin tration. The sale* at th? atock board yesterday were larger than for several day* put, but price* have verv material ly declined. Nerwieh and Worcester declined lj; Long I iland, 1}?and Rut Bo*ton nearly 1 from the last sale.? This tell in the pile* of steck* is undoubtedly owing to the war newt from Ten* and Mexico Varieties. | Scarcity or Li?oiic? m Canada. -The Britiih Whig i says There is a great scarcity in Kingston of trades i men, laborers, and firm sorvauti. Not a carpenter or | bricklayer can be bad for love or money, so much build | k?'nb o" this spring. The government works absorb all the laborers. Removal or the Miama.?We learn from tlie Fort | Wayne Sentinel, that the Miama Indians are about to re move westward from Indiana, an agent of the govern ment having arrived for the purpose of superintending their removal. They will probably be able to start by the last of May. Eiscctivk Vetoes.?The Governor of Michigan has returned the following bills with his veto :? 1. The '

To incorporate the Hint and Saginaw Railroad Company. 4. The Pontiac and Grand lliver Canal Company, ft. The Pontiac and Genesee Railroad Company." 1 fin objections are given ut length, but relate mainly to the repealing clause. The bill provides that after thirty years, the Legislature may alter, amend or repeal it, on making compensation to the company. The Governor deems this in effect an irrepefelable charter. Death at Saratoga sminus.?Dr. Joha Clarke, well known as the proprietor of Congress Spring, and highly esteemed as a citizen, died at Saiutoga Springs on the 6th inst., aged 73. Making an Odu Fellow.?Some enterprising cliarac" ters were tried at Columbia, South Carolina, a few days since, for attempting to make an Odd Fellow. with cere monies rather diri'eient from those used on ordinary occasions. The candidate was a stupid fellow named Burrentine. The " brethern" told him that if he would enter their order he would not be obliged to do nny more work, as he would be allowed one hundred dollar* a year for his support, as soon as ho was duly initiated?which was to be done by branding. Tempted by the prospect thus held out, Burrentine agreed to the process. The ceremonies were then perlormed by applying a cattle brand, having letter F within a diamond, seven times, a poittriari. On the trial, Burrentine was pressed so hard by tho defendants' council, while giving his testimony, that ho insisted on giving the Court ocular demonstration of his injuries. Tho Judge, however, ruled his evidence out, as being merely cumulative, and under the circum stances entirely unnecessary. The defendants wore found guilty, and they then appealed. An Old Ofkknder Cai-oht.? Alfred Jones, alias Mont gomery, who is supposed to be the person who stole the trunk from the Wnltlmm stage last December, contain ing (3700, belonging to the Waltham Bank, was arrested at South Boston on Friday last. He has been examined at Kast Cambridge, and committed for trial, in default ot bail in (6000. He was detected from the fact of his pass ing two $100 bills of the stoleu money at the Bank. Jones has served three years in the State prison of Massachusetts, for stealing (7000 from a stage in Lynn; also another threo years since for robbing the store or Henry N. Hooper st Company.
