Sir: The undersigned, a committee appointed to in form you that at a meeting of the 8tate Central Commit tee of the Native American party, held last evening at ABMrican Hall in thii city, you were unanimously nominated aa a suitable person to be supported at the enauing election, for the office of Governor of the " great and patriotie State of New Vork," embrace the earlieit opportunity to perform the duties of their appointment In the fu U and faithful discharge of that duty, they are authorised to say to you, that the committee whom ihiy represent, on examining into the history of your hitherto useful and irreproachable life, which has been as beneficial aa it is bright, found abundant evidence to convince them of your fitness for the office to which they desire to elevate you -, and that you possess talents to All, I and virtue to adorn it?with a unamm.ty which we hope will be as gratifying to yoa, as we trust it will be auspicious to our cause, they named you as the individual who should receive our suurages m our candidate for the office of Governor of the Empire State. Persuaded that this token of their respect for your abilities and conAdenceinyourprincip.es; and this expression of their gratitude for your past public services will be duly appreciated ; and that you are prepared to servo those who delight to honor you. we expect and believe that we shall not be disappointed ; that you will stand as our candidate, and be proud of the support of Native Americans. With respect, we are your obedient servants, i. Laksiro, Loba Nash, Roar. C. Humu, W. L. Pita i.e., A. Thompson. New Yobs, Oet. ft, 1840. Gentlemen : Your letter, informing me of my having been nominated for the Chief Magistracy of this State, by a highly respectable portion of my fellow citizens was received. I consider myself highly honored by this mark of their confidence, and by the complimentary manner in which you have been pleased to announoe it. From the time I first took an aotive part in politics, until I went upon the bench, i was a momber of the old republican party. Through all the trying scenes of that party, and of the country, which then intervened, I cooperated cordially with them. I was elected by them to represent this city in the Legislature which convened during the most trying period of the war. And I zealously advocated all the efficient measures whioh were then adopted for its vigorous prosecution. 1 was subse quently elected by that party, a member of the Convention which formed the Constitutioa of this 8tats, and ax enou mymii 10 carry uiio vueci ui? salutary reiorm* which war* then adopted, and subsequently sanctioned by an immense majontv ot the people, without reepect to party. Upon going upon the bench, I deemed it unbecoming my official ttatioa to take an active part in poll tica. But aa I could not ceeae to fool a deep aolioitude in the political welfare of the country, 1 vigilantly watched the political movemeuta. In the course of eventa I aaw with deep conoern that that party had awerved from ita principle*, h < d paued into the control of men whe were awaying it with a a ingle rye to their ownlperaonal advancement, and in disregard of tho public welfare. The effect of t is was to sever me, in company with a largo portion of the most respectable men of that party, from it, and to eompol us to eo operate with such of our follow citizen* as were willing to unite in carrying out tho principles of " the eld republican party." This produced what la now tanned tho whig party, but which might with more propriety be called " the aid republican P T?is, then, is my present political position. So many years have elapsed since 1 have taken an active part in politics, that I feel a strong aversion to again encounter their agitations, unless 1 could be instrumental in restoring those principles, and an order of things which once prevailed in our country. There was a time when public men considered country paramount to party. During thn' pei A our ancestors hurled defiance at ona of the T' -t po t monarch* on earth, and by their matchless v ran. laiinc intrepidity, made us a free and indepennat\ a. rcely had the atom of war o'erblown, v u, with con mnmate wisdom, they reared the constitution of the United States-, that stupendous monument oi human wi.- om, under whose beautiful and aerene system wo have enjoyed a degree of prosperity unparalleled in tho annals of mankind. Thia they loft as n rich legacy to their children, whom they inspired with a veneration for their example. Tho sparks which were emitted from tho altar of 19, kindled the flame of patriotism in their bosoms, which continued long to shod its benign influence upon our country. But in the course of eventa a generation has ari;en. which knows not Joseph. Party hat become paramount to country; and the public welfare is immolated upon the altar of selfishness ? instead or seeking the pnnue welt are, a large portion of our leading men are aeeking, tinder the most pUnsible professions, their own exolusive welfare. A servile devotion to the vlewi of demagogue* has become the test of patriotism. Parlies rise ?nd sink, and their oourse is only marked by their desolating effects. Talents and mmrml worth ere jno scribed, and have retired in disgust from the contest} whilst the only resnlt consequent upon their altercations, are that one set of men Ihtten upon the spoils of the public instead of another. And these are the fruits of those biassed privileges,for which Oar revolutionary sires per Jled their Hves and their fortunes. 1 his state of things must be brought to an end, or the country is ruined The country will look in vain to regularly organized and disciplined party leaders for relief. The people must arise in their mizht,and extricate themselves from the serpentine party folds which envelope them. The truly disinterested and patriotic must nnite heart and hand in - the glorious undertaking?they must dismiss all party prejudices? mast forget and forgive, and view every one who will co operate as a brother. In this way, and in this way only, can the country be disenthralled, and placed upon that elevated gronnd where our Revolutionary father* left it It is a glorious undertaking?it is a second war of independence; only with this difference, that we are delrauded of our rights, by those who are embosomed amongst us, instead or being oppressed by foreign invaders. Such are their arrmneemeiita. and so potent in their organization, that they have obtained tho absolute mastery of tho country. Every voice is drowned which does not echo their mandates; and the still small voice of reason is not heard amid their raging tumults Political hacks have become so numerous that their name is Legion; and Turkey was never more absolutely governed by Janissaries, than this country is by them. Te this I trace the cause of all our evils, and to the remedying af this evil i am willing to devote my self. i em aware that I shall bo promptly met with the objection, that this is impracticable. But greater things than this have been accomplished. In tbu land in which we live, three millions of people extricated the countty from the fangs of the most potent monarch on earth. Is it therefore too much to hope, that their son* can preserve the liberties which were bequeathed to them by their fathers 1 It it only for the honeet men to will il, and it is done It rrauirts nothing hut moral courage Let every honest citizen come to a firm determination that he will go for " Hit Country, hit whole Country, and nothing but hit Country " Let him work up hie courage to the eticking point, looking hie poiilicol drill Sergeant tltadily in the face, soy to Aim : " .Sir, I have a Country to terve ; and a soul to save ; and I will abide your bid dinge no longer." By pursuing this course, they can bring faction within the rule of reason; can compel it to regard the public welfare; can ensure the support of honest men, and the prostration of knaTes. But I have aaid that I am a whig. Why, then, it will be aanea, ao 1 not eapport tneir nomination for Governor'? This qneation it is proper that I should answer. There is nothing 10 good but that it may be perverted for evU pnrpoaea. There ia no party ao pure hut that it may be betrayed. There are period* in political, at in all other human concern*, when it 1* proper that we ihould come to apt' ee; ihould. to borrow a lailor phrase, " reoiee. oar reckoning." Such a period del deem the preient. 1 will here premise that t1 is not mfiicient to command my implicit confidence in,a candidate, that It wat liom of a whig nominating convention William H. Seward and John Tyler could both boait the same peUrnity; and yet the one ruined the whig perty in this State by hit demagoguiim; and tha other disgraced the nation by his treachery end folly. Thl* candidate has been brought forward, fixed upon the Whig party by a combination of men (of whom I con sider Governor Seward the head.) and in w hom I have BO confidence, and by long-continued, persevering, and strenuous efforts Having not the leaat confidence in their patriotism, and much lea* in tbair disinterestedness, 1 have been driven to the conclusion that all theae effort* were to anawer their own selfish purposes. By electh g John Young, I think we shell so increase their power of d> ing mischief, that not only the State, but the nation will wither under it. 1 do consider it a movement to concentrate power in the hands of those who originated It, not only for the purpose of strengthening and consolidating thair power In this Slate : but mainly for the pnrpote of enabling them to dotignal* a candidate for tbe Pretidency trho will anoveer their ntfariou* purpoieo. Thus they hope by one plague to gene rale another, until tha whole nation ia Infected Kar be it from me to impute such motives to the greet majosity of those wbe co-operated in this movement. I have, on the contrary, the greatest confidence )n the purity of their motives. Owing mainly to the ex hsostion of tbo whig party, consequent oi the greet struggle to eleet Henry Clay, and the distracting effects consequent upon the deplorable results of that Aection, they retired in des}tair from the political arena. This enabled wily demagogues?who nsvsr slumber?to press on without opposition ! and as their voices were almost tbe only ones hoard, the mass of the party were deluded into the belief that they expressed the prevailing sentiments. Thus, while the honest men of the party slept, the evil ones were sowing tores, which have now spruDg up, and are choking us. 1 say that I have no confidence in tha motive* of those men who mainly effected the nomination of John Young end 1 will tell you why. From their first appearance upon the polMrtl arena, their ?aur?? has bean marked by strenuous efforts to foment tactions. I will now proceed to the proof. Owing mainly to tha immaaoa influx of foreigners into this city, and the difficulties necssss rijv consequent npon ascertaining whethsr they were legally qualified to vote, fiaudulent voting prevailed to a grea'. extent. This was an evil which called loudly for redt ess. As soon as tbe r hig party had tha pewsr, they pa-aed a law requiring a legisti y of the voters ? The only poseilile consequence attendant upon ita opera tion would have been to prevent fraud and parjnry at the polls But when this act was sent to Uovernor So ward tor bis spprovai, to ths utter astonishment ef tbe whole party, they learnt that ho had made up his mind to veto {t, Such, however, was tha indignation which it created that Uu deemed it prudent to recede from tha ground which he had takaa, and ta aign the bill. Bat his motives far taUing this stand glared out from his subsequent eon^ J*Our time-honored Common School system had long ETTVE NEA Mounahed and dilfuaed ita blaaaingi far and wida. It waa a cardinal principle in ita orfaaixalion that nothing like aectarianiam ahould be allowed ia it Vat. at tha inatiga- ; tion of a Catholic Biihop, it waa wpea the recommendation of dot Seward immly deranged and in' nred. Subsequently ha praaidad at an Iriah repeal meeting in thia city. And laetof all. ha haa repeatedly declared thai ha wosmfooor of allowing forngnoro to oote mo room aa thou landed. Now, 1 will hare aak. waa thia for tha good of tha public alone, or had he and hia coadjntora an eye to tha vote of foreigner* for hia own peculiar benefit? Bat thia ia not all. Upon whom ia to be triad ed the den? > * ? " uvi ?u e)s wiuwsa ui fact* and from their nature could net have been But it ia consi.tared that he laat hie election in consequence of the withdrawal of votes by the abolition party. No*, Wm H. He ward waa than, and ha and hi* devoted paper# , ever aince have been, upon friendly term* with that party. It haa been publicly itatad and proved, to my aatlatartion, that in hi* electioneering tour, under pretence of -upporting Mr. Clay, he advocated abolitionism; and that in every county into which he want there waa a reduced wnig vote. Now, thia (hot in connection with the fact that he and hi* coadjutor* took the lead in defeating the nomination ot Clay, when Harriaon waa nominated, and that he and they were ever hoatile to him, I cannot doubt but that Clay'a defea' ia mainly to be ascribed to him. 11, thon, coon are the fasti, what may we not expect his eourve will be upon tho approaching Pre sideutial contest * Anti-Rentism drat made its appearance under his administration. Instead of calmly and deliberately enquiring into their complaints, and applying inch remedies as could be consistently with the constitution, anl a just regard to legal and vested rights, and then firmly and decisively enforcing the lawe, he pursued another courae. The fire which then broke out we* fanned into e flame Thousands of honest men were deluded into a belief that their ends could be accomplished by violence -, and in the sequel we behold rebellion and bloodshed. Now, what was the language held by aim and his printers during thesa scenes ? Was it not such as to render him and them the favorites of those deluded men. Jind wat not it urged tu a ttroug contideralim in favor of taking up John Young for Governor, that tho Anri-RxitTSBS would oote for him i Did not ell the Anti-Renters who voted on the first ballot for Ira Harris, their candidate, twenty-two in number, vote on this and for John Young. Nor is this all, subsequent events have placed the relation in which he stande to them beyona Question Ira Harris, who had been Dominated the anti-rent candidate for Governor, haa abandoned the nomination, and accepted a nomination aa aenator. Ia not the inference from thia, that they conaider John Youug a goad enough AmiRenter for them. Again, immediately after hia nomination was announced, he was written to by one of the Editors of the Cetsrier end Entnurer, to declate his aen timents upon the subject of Anu-Rentism. But to this day no answer haa appeared. If he ia innocent ofthe charge, would he thus long fail to clear himself But I And that 1 am running into a tedious length. I shall therefore close this branch of the subject by simply putting a few queHions to you. First, whether there has been a faction in thia State since he can.c upon the political arena, which Governor Seward and those by whom this nominalion was effected, have not courted?with which they were not favorites ? Second, Whether hia and their course haa not manifested a determination to out-Herod Herod, in the career of demagoguism 1 Third, Whether you are willing to turn from the highroad of honor which haa marked the course of the Whig party, to lose sight of the good of the country, end to be engulphed in ail the factions of the State ? 1 have expressed my opinion that ail thia note of preparation, and all these strenuous efforts for two long yeara to effect the nomination of a favorite candidate, have an. object beyond the election of a Governor of this State The State of New York (poor goose) has been already ao deffedged, that what remains of her spoils are not worth moving heaven and earth to obtain. No'. there is a rich prise ahead, the spoils of which are sufficient to enrich a I whole piratical crew. It it the Presidency?mark that. No w if I aa right in this, as 1 sincerely believe that I am, I -annot, and will not support John Young for Governor. | 1 never saw the man to my recollection, nor heard of him until he had been named for Governor. But it is a i Spanish pfoverb, " tell mo who pour company is, and I | wm mi you wag you are ion ma wbo oegot you, oy whom you were trained ; and above all that you were a man after their own heart* ; and it I know them, I will a*k no more question*. It 1* true that 1 am of opinion that the ion* of the soil ought to rule it That they are best acquainted with our institutions who were born under them. It is true that I never will consent to have our liberties the sport of either foreign bayonets or foreign votes. And that in every situation in which i may be plaoed, my best endeavors will not be wanting tor the correction of this evil, an evil which exists to a grievous extent, and which is rapidly increasing; and from the failure of the principal article of lood in kurope, (potatoes) threatens to be overwhelming. I will not consent to surrender to foreigners, through the ballot box, that control which our sires obtained at the point of the bayonet. The dictation of those who have been mainly instrumental in effecting the nomination of John Young, in stienuously opposing the registry act to prevent frauds at the elections, mainly consequent upon the influx of foreigners, iu deranging our salutary common school system, merely to obtain their fsvor; and of an ex-governor in presiding at an Irish repeal meeting, and declaring that he was in favor of Having foreigners vote as toon at they landed, will not swerve me from my purpose. Descended from ancestors who were among the first who landed upon this then boundless and howling wilderness, and wbo, after first vindicating their possessions from the scalping knives and tomahawks of the merciless savages, and subsequently wrested their country at the point of the bayonet, from foreign domination, my blood revolts at the thought of sugaring our privileges in any manner to be influenced by foreigners?or in other words, of demagogues, who take advantage of the ignorance of our people and institutions, to answer their own nefarious purposes Despairing of the support of a majority ol their own countrymen by whom they are best known, their last hope is from obtaining the votes of aliens wbo know nothing about them, excepting that they are the men who are in favor of placing the rights of their own countrymen st the disposal ot foreigners. Mo long as these men find it more for their interest to serve themselves than to serve the public, so long will they continue to defraud the people with impuuity. And how long will this be! It s impossible to say; tney are now in the full tide of succeseful experiment?instead of be iog condemned for their perfidy, they are lauded for their patriotism?instead of being tried for their crimes, they ... ?:,i. I am vary sensible that in holding thia language I ahall ba regarded ai one crying aloud iu the wilderness; ami that 1 ahall be no more heeded than the atiil small voice amid the raging whirlwind. That raaaon has but little ediciency in eradicating political evil?that in this world one evil is wholly corrected by another?that the violence of one faction la neutralized by encountering another?that Satan ia ever buay driving out Belzebub. if auch language as thia ia held to the people, they will he told by the ring-leadsra of faction, that it ia ail wrong; that if they heed it, it will ruin the party; that th ?hr leaden will no longer love the people: thee there will then be a famine in the land, for they will then have no more democracy. However alarming thia may be to the multitude, it will not frighten me; for 1 have lived through the administration of Washington and his patriotic successors, and kuow that wo can exist in so pure an atmosphere as was then breathed. 1 do know froiu actual experience, that patriots end statesmen can govern as well as demagogues?that when the people look solely to public good, and select for their public as well as private business, men who are honest and capable, all will go well; and that demagogues are no more necesaary for the protection of our political rights, than knaves for the safe keeping of our money. Do not evil thet good may follow. Tursue honest ends by honest means. Let every voter raise his moral standard, and he will raise his oountry along with him. It ia but too apparent that a race iu the course of demegoguiam has commenced between the loaders of the contending parties in this State. The greet body of people of both perties are bonnst But they have committed the reins to their leaders, and must go wherever they anr?. io? genius 01 Mni|ogiuim he* recently raised it* crest in the whig party, it has long boon secretly nurtured in its rank* by tboao in whom the party hod confidence. And now it to boldly obtruded, and strenuous efforte ore made to ongrolt upon it oil the faction* of the State. Yea, whig*, dtociple* of Washington, you are now colled upon to stoop front your deration, to surrender your piinciples, to co-Ojsarate in tlia glorious work of permitting foreigners, without stint, to designate your rulers, and to be tamely led through all the foul lenea and vile recesses of factious radicalism. And all for What T Why .that you may arrire at power by crawling through the taire oi infamy. That you may obtain office and honors by showing yourselvas unworthy of them. This will never do for the whiga?and whan thoy attire at the truth of the matter, they will be astonished at the audacious impudence of the meu who have dared to proceed upon the assumption that they were so devoid ol honor. With regard to political principles, there to not, there cannot be any dilfaranoa ol opinion between honest men. Our duty to Uod?to our country?end to oureeivoa?to too plain to be mistaken It to only in the mode of discharging it, that honest men differ, in this country it to not to be doubted but that incomparably the largest portion of ah parties desire a Just, equitable, and paternal government, and honeet rulers. How then does it heppen that with the power in their hands, they fell so tar short of their markl I will tell you?they depute their whole power to unfaithfal agent*-to iparty hacks?who have their own eeifish ends to accomplish, end who cere more for the apoito of offloe, than for those whose eenlldence they obtain and betray. Hare lias the secret. Mainly by the combination of these men with the radi r?U of the Democratic party, waa the Convention called for reviling the t (institution. And hare I come to an appalling subject. The conititution of this State, which in all iu cardinal feature* wa* the work of the venerated Governor Jay, and which waa aanctioned by the beet and wneat ol our Revolutionary patriots : whlch|wai moat carefully and cautiouily reviled and cerrected by the Convention of INI, 1* in danger of being prostrated in the duat. Instead ef limply applying a correcting hand, they are uprooting it to the foundation K.ven Judges, these who ought to be lifted above the agitations el polities, and calmly but firmly to stay the raging tumults of society?are destined to be the offsprings 01 party contests?to emerge from, an t be swayed alternately in contending factious. And yet these are the men to whom, as a last resort upon oarth, the people must look J* Justice. Tho salutary experience ot our ancestors in thl? and the mother country, prays, pleads in vain, to ffff* t,h* actuaries of justice. It is in vain to hope that !*'*m of laws which was the fruit of the oa?"r ' fctbers, from the earliest record* of i JrySUfS"*1 matured by the most enlightened hut "' " "iWhiCh, like the laws ef nature, qnietly ' I ^ ***7 ?*a kt upheld in their purity, by men mmmmmmmJtmmmmrnmmm Wf Y O mk v yob?Ts aturday m J* who are ruMil to the bench by heated partizana, end I who will lookjbr support to selfish demagogue*. The impulse* which away the multitude at the polla will away the mdgea on the bench. Law will awing from ita moorigga, and law and juatice will awiog along with it But this is rfjft all. Theae men who are ao lavish in their eulogiumaupon the wiadont and virtue of the people, are ax carefully laying the reprcaentatirea of the people under igttriction, aa if they were renegadea from the State prison. The time waa in thia State, when we had repraaentatfcree who could be truated. Aa it reapectd fcraignera, I would cheerfully extend to them all the hnapitalitiea of the country, and all the fhcilitiea which |t affords, for the acquisition of wealth and the educationef their children, and aa soon at they had raaided lodg enough among us to become euMciently acquainted with our institutions and our people, to qualify than to aMpaiaa the elective franchise to their own !

The contention now in *e*aion had it in their power to correal!, hut ao far from doing it, they (truck from the conetiahtion the provision that the Oovernor hould be a native of the country. Such a provision wm inserted in thai constitution of the United States.? Why was it struck asit of ours ? I have now madoo clean sweep of it So much truth cannot be told without alarming the workers of iniquity, and for it I shall hgro their shafts to encounter, i am not, however, suok a novioe as not to know, that their dens cannot be assailed without encountering their hostility. My politicals this respect, however, is not a novel one. But, cheered with a continence that I have Qod and truth oo tag aide, I shall not be intimidated by tear of the evil one. I wilt aay with Junius, "Engaged in the defence of ao honorable caase, I will act a decisive part. 1 scorn to provide for future retreat, or to kaepterasa with man who preserve no measures with the public." v Although I have fell confidence in the patriotism and oonsorvauva view* of that highly respectable portion of my foliow-citisoaasrhioh you represent, and believe that the evil of whichthey complain is a grievous one, ani ought to bo remedied ; yet there are so many other ovila under which the good people ol this State groan, that i should bo failing in ray duty to them (should I by any miracle be elected) to place myself in a position which would embarrass mo in considering all the good people of the State wife an equal and paternal aye.

It is indeed very questionable whether the new Constitution, about to be submitted to the people, will fully realize the hopes of that large class of citizens who have confidently contemplated a moat radical and thorough revision of the old constitution. Reform* will bo mod in this now paper, without doubt; but radical reforms necessarily partake aomowhat of an experimental character, and such a degree of hesitation and apprehension in regard to the adoption of original impositions, ha* diitinguished the conduct of these gentlemen, together with a pre-conoeived determination, which has been amply evinced, to avoid all encroachment upon what are deemed to be the immutable law* of humanity, oi nature and of Ood, that 1 am of opinion that the new constitution will not meet with that cordial reception from the people which it i* believed it will by a portion of the convention. I will forbear comment upon any particular portion ot this paper, and will immediately send you a eopy, so soon aa it shall have been perfected. I make allusion to the following section, offered by Mr. Murphy, and adopted by a vote ot94 to 3jbecau.se, I suppoM it will make a city residence more tolerable. The extraordinary amount of taxation, of all kinds, imposed In oities excite* remark every where. If inhabitants in cities could be taxed for their reuts a sum corresponding to the assessment of the property they occupy, the rate* lor rent would be much more just. The following section was adopted by the vote above " It shall be the duty of the Legislature to provid e for the organization of cities and incorporated villages, and especially to restrict their power ol taxation, aaMssment, norruwiufi rouucy, twuu*uju|j ubim?, ?uu lUBuiug iu?u credit, io as to prevent abuses in their assessments, and in contracting debts by auch municipal corporation!.''

We aee in the eighth article of the new Conatitution a moat worthy and effectual effort to remodel, in aotne degree, the banking system of thia Stale. After having gone through with thia article to the eighth section pretty readily, a very animated and interesting debate ensued upon the eighth article, which ia at followa s? " The atockholdera in every corporation and joint stock association for banking purposes, issuing bank notes or any kind of paper credita to circulate as money, alter the flrat day of January, 1B&0, shall be individually responsible to the amount of their respective share or shares of stock in any such corporation or corporations, for all its debts and liabilities, of e vary kind, contracted after the said flrat day of January, 18X)'1 On a vote of AS to ill, the Convention finally refused to reconsider the above section, and it was adopted. 1 expect that thia section will have a most decided tendency to contract the powers nnd limit the operations of bankets. The whole article le of like diameter, and contemplates chock upon onlimitad credit far straw secuiitie*. It being the e'gftth article, and it having bean Anally adoptad and ordared to bo engrossed by a vote of 8A to 88, I herewith send you a copy of it 1)1. Corporations may bo formed under general laws ; not shall not be created by special act, oxoept for municipal purposes, and in cases where in the Judgment of the Legislature the objeets of the corporation oennot be attained under general laws. All general laws and special acta, passed pursuant to this section, may be alteieo Irom time to time, or repealed. 1)5.

A resolutionfoffered by Mr. Nicoll stipulating that the Legislature shall provide for the free education of every child in this State, was adopted by a vote of 67 to 6*1. The Legislature is also instructed to provide the necessary funds for this purpose by taxation. The above propositions were reconsidered and lost. Mr. Hoffman then offered the following section as a substitute for the report of the standing committee on eduoaiion, and it was adopted by a vote of 104 to 8 " The capital of the common school fund, the capital of the literature fund, and the capital of the U. 8. deposits fund, shall be preserved inviolate. " The revenue of the said common school fund shall be applied to the support of common schools ; the revenue of the yud literature fund shall be applied to the support of academies; .and the sum of $'16,000, of the U. 8. deposite fund snail each year be appropriated to and made part of tho capital of the said common I school fund." The following article has boen adopted and ordered to be engrosoed sbticle x. Sir i- 1. Sheriffs clerks of counties. inrlnJinir the re ruler and clerk of the city and county of New York, coroners, and diitrict attorney*, shall be chosen, by the electors of the respective counties, once in every three ' years, and as often as vacancies shall happen. Sheriffs shall hold no other office, t nd be ineligible for the next three years after the termination of their offices. They may be required by law to renew their security from time to time. and in default of giving such new security, their offices shall be deemed vacant. But the county shall never be made responsible for the acts of the sheriff. The governor may remove any officer in this section mentioned, within the term for which he shall have been elected, giving to such officer a copy ot the charges against him, and an opportunity of being heard in nis defence. i) 1 All county officers whose election er appointment is not provided for by this constitution, shall bs elected by the electors of the respective counties, or appointed by the boards of supervisors, or other county authorities, as the Legislature shall direct. All city, town, and village officers, whose election or appointment is not provided for by this constitution, shall be elected by the electors of such cities, towns and villages, or of some division thereof, or appointed by such authorities thereof, as the Legislature shall designate for that purpose. All other officers, whose election or appointment is not provided for by this constitution, and all officers whose offices may hereafter be created by law, shall be elected by the people, or appointed as the Legislature may direct. V>. When the duration of any office is not provided by this Constitution, it may be declared by law, and if not so declared, such office shall be hold during the pleasure ol the authority making the appointment V*. The time of electing all officers nsuned in this arti ^4. The Legislature shell provide for filling recencies in ofllce, and in case of elective officers, no person eppointed to fill a vacancy .shall hold his office by virtue of such appointment longer than the commencement of the political year next succeeding the first annuel election after the happening of the vacancy. The Convention is making rapid progress, and will probably adjourn to-morrow. At this present writing nearlv the whole of the new constitution has been perfected, end I can see no reason why the session should be prolonged beyond to-day. Notwithstanding the apparent submission of the conservatives to the democratic nomination for Governor, yet it is a literal fact, hardly attempted to be concealed In certain, quarters, that the policy ol the hunkers is, "war to the knife." We see knots cogitating, apostates whispering, and cliques claiming. We observe a disposition on the pait ol the hunkers to defeat Silas Whignt, and there can be no mistake about their intentions. " Twinkle" is in town again, and " Twinkle" has his inSbrac lions. "The dogs of war" are ravenous, and you wOl perceive that the vote will probably be close. The bage-paws, that is to say,the terrible democracy, meet at the Capitol on i'riday evening, to respond to the nomination of Wright and Gardiner. We expect an extreme agitation of the elements, and uuction may have to be administered to ensure quiet. We propose to give you a sketch of the proceedings. B'nrdirtte. Aoorrr.D October 7, 1918.?Mr. Russell, from the select committee, to which was referred the matter of eatending the right of suffrage to colored citizens, with instructions, lie., reported that the committee have had under consideration ino matters referred to them end unanimously recommend the adoption of the following resolutions :? Resolved, That at the next general election, and at the same time when the votes of the electors shall be ititution, the additional amendment la the word* following : ? " ? . Colored male citizen*, possessing the qualification* required by the first iiection of thi* article, other han the property qualification, ihall hare the right to vote for all oftlcer* that now are, or may be, elective by the people after the first day of January, 1847" ?Shall be separately submitted to the electors of this State for adoption or rejection, in form following, to wit Separate ballots may be given by every person, hav-' ing the right to vote for the amended constitution, to t>e deposited in the same box. Upon the ballots given for the adoption of the said separate amendment, shall be written or printed, or partly written and partly printed, the words, " Equal suffrage to colored persons 7?Yes." And upon the ballot* given against the adoption of the said separate amendment, in like manner, the words, " Equal auffrage to colored persons I? No." And on such ballots shall be written or printed, or partly written and partly printed, the words, " Constitution: Suffrage" ?In such manner that such words shall appear on the outerside of such ballot when folded. If, at the said election, a majority of all the votes given for and against the said separate amendment ahall contain the words " equal suffrage to colored persons )? Yes," then the said separate amendment, after the first dayef January, 1847, sliall be a separate section of article second ol the constitution, in full force and effect, any thing contained in the constitution to the contrary notwithstanding. Resolved, That the last preceding resolution be caused to be published, in the manner specified in the resolution of the convention relative to the notice of the time and manner of voting for tbo amended constitution. [Krom the Albany Argua, Oct. 9 ] Mr Loomi* proposed to recommit the two sections of the last article adopted, with instructions to strike them out and report instanter. The motion prevailad, SI to 27: tbe instructions complied with, and the sections struck out. The article was then ordered to be engrossed. The Convention then took up th? remaining articles, on tne subject of local officers, the militia, omoial oaths, future amendments of the constitution, and the miscellaneous articles?and they were variously, but not materially amended, and, with the exception |of the last, ordered to be engrossed. At the suggestion of Mr. Ruggles, this article was not ordered to he engrossed?and tor the reason that it contained provisions in regard to the judioiai v, and the article on that subject he desired to move should be submitted separately to the people. He offered a resolution declaring that to be practicable, and directing to be engrossed, with sections of other articles, so as to make a separate submission of the judiciary system.? Without action on this question, the Convention adjourned. Capture of the Slav* Brio Casket?Fuel Particulars.?The brig Casket, of Beverley, in command of Lieutenant C. C.

Hoyt i* rapidly declining, and cannot live through this day. Ilia brain i* iaat protruding itself out of hit head, and the fungut it enlarging to an alarming and fearful extent. If he lives through the night, it will be a marvellous and strange thing. He is now perfeotly delirious; to much so that hit will cannot be made. TKrom the Richmond Whir. Oct 8 1 Soon after the tragic occurrence in thii city, which if supposed to have grown out of uih'ged improper intercourse between Mr Hoyt and a mnriieil lady, the undersigned wai informed that imputations of an injurious character were in circulation ugaiiut him, in connection with that affair. He |i?id but little attention to them, supposing that they were mere vague and random tuapiciona, auch aa always attend a circumstance occasioning so much excitement Moreover, being summoned as a witness in the ponding judicial investigation, ho was content to post|>ono any notice of those imputations until that investigation had taken place. The Investigation has been deferred from time to time, for reaeons known to the public, and in the meantime the rumors which affect himself have become more vehement, and he has leerued more of their nature end extent. He has been informed also, from friendly as well as other sources, that they have prodnced much excitement in the public mind against him, and that even menaces of violence towards himself and his property have been altered?(not by either of the gentlemen, however, who have been arretted) His sole object in this address to the public is, to defend himself from the imputations which he has been informed are made against himself, without designing to express any opinion or say any thing to induce others to form en opinion on any fact which may be the subject of enquiry by the judicial tribunals. He permits himself even to do this only because it may be, that he may not have an opportunity to make that vindication in any other mode? or not until the publio mind may be incurably poisoned against him. He has not seen or hetu-d any evidence on which these 1 accusations against him are said to he founded, and does | not know, except from general rumor, of what he is ac VUVVU, UUI UIO IWIUIV Ul UIO QVKIVUCS irum WUIUI IUO accusations have been inferred. He will state them substantially as he understands them. They are:? 1. That the undersig ned knowingly allowed to Mr. Hoyt the use oi private rooms in his hotel for the purpose of piivate interviews with the iady referred to. 3. That a correspondence was carried on between said parties with his knowledge, and by means of letters sent under care to him. If these allegations were true he readily admits he would have been guilty of conduct unbecoming a manof family , and iustiy calculated to excite public indigna tion against him. The naturo of the accusations, at the same time, plainly demands frem all sober-minded and just men that they should not give ear to or circulate such accusatious, or make them the reason for denunciation, without proof, and without affording the party aocused the means of answering them Now, as to these accusations, I solemnly aver that they are Doth utterly and absolutely false 1. Mr. Hoyt never asked the undersigued for a private room for the purpose of any such intetviuw as m alleged, or inded, so far as 1 now recollect or neiieve, for any purpose. Tne undersigned does not know that Mr Hoyt and the lady in question ever were together in any , oom, bed chamber or parlour, other than the open public pailour of the hotel. He has seen her occassional ly m the public parlour, and some times when Mr. Hoyt ws- there also, and also with other persons He has never kren theiu together in the parlour or known of their being there in such manner or under such circumstances as to excite in his mind say belief of improper intercourse betwee them. The door was always open wheuever ihey were known by him to be there, as inddeed H always is in mild weather. It is proper to say that he was iold by a person who boards in his house, that these parties were in a private parlour of the house, on one occasion when the undersigned was from home. But he thought at the time, and continued to believe down to the time of the assault on Mr. Hoyt, that there was a mi. take aoout the fact, and consequently attached no importance to it, and gave no more thought to it auu iub uuucrsiguru solemnly avers uiei u iuch i'M 1 un r did hold interviews in hi* hotel, either iu private room* or in the public parlour for improper purposes. or eecret intercourse of any aort, they were held without hie knowledge, participation or concui rence in any way. 2. If any lettera were lent to either of the paittealrom the other under cover to him, he solemnly avers that It was without hie knowledge, or even suspicion, at the time. It is by no means an uncommon occurrenoe that letters are sent under cover to him addressed to persons boarding or staying at his house. And such a (act is so natural as obviously to be not calculated to excite any enjuiry or speculation with him,from whom they came or for what reason they were so;sent. It is a matter which does not concern the undersigned, and he is not apt to he cutious about other people's business. He knows of but two circumstances which ean possibly be referred to in his charge: he will stato all he knows about them: On one occasion, not very long before the assault on Mr. Hoyt, a letter was handed to the undersigned by a servant. On opening it he found it enclosed a letter to Mr. Hoyt?and Mr. Hoyt being in the saloon, he called him and handed him the letter, and asked him, alter he had opened it,'if there was any answer: he said not, and the underaigned so told the servant, and he went away The undersigned did not notice the servant, and does not know whose servant ha waa. Tha letter to him contained a (ingle line in substance, requesting. him to hand the enclosed to Mr. Heft. It Was without signature. Ha did not know the hand-writing?or rather na did not examine it sufficiently to know whether he would hare known it The transaction excited no curiosity, speculation or suspicion in his mind?and he thought no more of it until the accusation abore mentioned recalled it to his reoollection. He again solemnly arers that he was wholly ignorant, as he is now. from whom the letter came?and he neither , knew nor had the least suspieion that it came from the lady in question. On another occasion, soon after, Mr Hoy t informed the undersigned that there was a letter to him enclosed in one to the undersigned at a boarding house on the hill in the hands of a young lady. He named both the boarding house and the lady, which,for obrious reasons, 1 do . not repeat Ha reqooetad ma to sand for tho latter. 1 did so by a servant with an open not# to tho lady?and as l was going out of tho room, said to Mr. Hoy t that as ho said the letter contained one to him, when the (errant returned he had better open it He aiterwards told mo ha had got tha letter, and I nerer enquired, nor did ho tell me, trom whom it was or what it was about. 1 solemnly aver that I did not know or inspect from whom thie letter came?and still less that it was from tha lady in question, or from any lady, or on any improper subject. The fact that it was sent to rae through the hand* of a lailv of the kioKatt utan/liner and of ail unblemished character, wm of itielf sufficient to hare prevented an) uch suspicion. If this latter were, as may be now suspected, part o an improper correspondence, (and whether it was or not the undersigned has not even now the least kdowledge, who is there so uncharitable, as not to see and admit, the persona innocent of all knowledge of or participation ir sueh a correspondence may have been made the uncon scioug instruments of its accomplishment 7 The undersigned having madia the above statements is ready to attest them, oy the solemnity of an oath Any statements, oral or written, from whatever quarter inconsistent with them, are wholly destitute of truth.

A Singular charge of Larceny.?Mr. Jacob Vendorpool, Jr., lumber merchant, of No. WjCherry itroct, ante rod a complaint yesterday before Juitico Drlnkar, against another lumber Jealor by the aama of Fhinoao Davis, charging him with stealing over $?000 worth of lumber, from off1 the dock where it wa* landed, near the Jackaon Ferry, under the following circumstance*:?It appear* VIr Davis purchased thia lumber in Michigan, ana procured it? transportation 10 una city Dy retiy, Wallace k Co, of I'ontiac, Michigan, who conaignod It to Mr Vanderpool, Jr., their agent, of thii citv. The expen ei of tran?|>ortatioii was to do paid (which amounted to over fioOo.) out of tlio proceeds of the lumber when sold, or as much sooner r? convenient. In the mean time the lumber vm to remain ? collateral security. One day this week Mr. Davis called upon Mr. Vanderpool, and stated that ho could make a hotter sale of the lumber in Boston than he could here, and wished to take it on there forlhat purpose. This Mr. Vanderpool wee unwilling he should do, until he had firet paid the freight for the transportation from Michigan. This Mr. Davie agreed to do, and yesterday was the day appointed for that purpoaei but instead of which, he chartered two I veaaels, loaded tham with the lumber on the aly, and ! started them for Boston, without fulfilling hie previous Cromise, in paying the hill of freight?by ao doing he hae lid Mr. Vanderpool liable lor the whole bill of expeneae of the transportation of said lumber. Upon theao facta being set forth in the affidavit made by Mr. Vanderpool, Justice Drinker issued a warrant for the arrest of Davie, and placed the process into the hands of a ward constable to serve, and in the course of the afternoon the accueed was arrestee, but instead of being brought before the magistratd as the law directs, forthwith, he was detained in custody, and a communication sent to Mr. Vunderpool, to induce him to mske soma settlement, which he very correctly declined doing, stating that the matter was in the hands of the law, therefore, it was out of his power to make any arrangement ot the kind. However, a magnetic telegraphic despatch was sent on to Boston bv Davis, last evening, to a firm in that city, to whom he has consigned the lumber, for the purpose of obtaining funds to liquidate bis claim* hart; an answer is oxpsctd this forenoon, whioh may altar the complexion of thing! materially, ir the Mind* are forthcoming. Thu? tlie affair standi at pretent. Making himttlf "Hunk."?One of the policemen of the lit ward arretted yeiterday afternoon, a young man by the name of Abiaa C. Caldwell, on a charge of defrauding Mr. Samuel Colt, of the Arm of Colt It Robinaon,proprietor* of the magnetic telegraph, corner of Hanover and Kxchsnge itreet, of about $100 worth of tin foil, under the following circumatancea: It appear* that Caldwell haa been in the employ of Mr. Colt for nearly a year, efTand on, and yeaterday Mr. Colt employed hha to obtain about OOO^pounds of tin foil from Mr. Ruahton, the druggiat in Broadway, which had been left fer tale. On procuring the property he ordered the cartman to drive to Mr. Aspinwall'a, the druggiat, at No 00William itreet. and aold the whole to that gentleman for $70. In the courae of the afternoon Colt met Caldwell in the itreet. when he waa Informed by the accuaed that he had aold the tin foil for the above aura, and neid Mr Celt $44 05, and kept the balance, remarking that he (Colt) waa indebted to him for service* rendered; consequently he took this method for the purpose of making himaeu " hunk." Mr. Colt Bnding himself done, caused the arroat of Cauldwell for the embezzlement, and Justice Drinker committed him for examination. Caught on the "Lift"?Officer McManua, of the 0th ward, arreated last evening, two fellowa called Bill Sumpton and John Donohue, whom be caught in the act of ' lifting" a coat worth $10, from the shop doer of Mr. Wm Dolsen, No. 14 Bowery.

Charge of Forgery.?A young man by the name of Henry C. Thompson, was arrested last night by officer Garrison of the lOih ward, on a charge of forging an order for $h, purporting to be drawn by John Trvunjoroprietor of the Bowery Circus, and directed to Mr. Warren Draper, the treasurer of the above establishment? He was detected in the presentation of the order, and conveyed befere Justice Taylor, who locked him up far examination. Petit Larceny ?John Ilogan was arrested last night for stealing a vest and two silk handkerchiefs, worth $9 AO, belonging to James Carter, No. 330 Greenwich street. Locked up for trial. Marriage ott the "Pnintt."?Quite a funny scene occurred on the Five Points, last night, in the matrimonial lino, wherein a raw countryman performed the principal part in the farce. It appears that a green countryman by the name of Michael Curren, arrived in this city on Thursday last from Hartford, Conn . with the intention of going on to New Orleans, when after strolling about town and feeling somewhat tired, (he then being on tha classic Points) asked a young man where he could procure mquiot lodging, in a retired neighborhood, for the nighr He was at once conducted to No. 143 Anthony street, wherein he was introduced to the fashionable parlies or that vicinity, such as ">nooiers," "lushers," "till tappers," "touchers " and "pickpockets," all of whom treated him with profound respect, so long as he troatod them at the bar. The landlady, Mrs. Bandford, proposed a dance, and our "Yokle" friend commenced footing It away, having been introduced to a bonnie lass called Harriet Evans, who, after the second dance, managed to win the admiration of poor Curren to such an extent, that marriage was proposed, which was readily accepted by the fair lady ; a ring was purchased for $3 by Curren and placed on her finger?the minister was sent for to tie the holy knot However, a minister not being handy, a gentleman, well known in those "diggins," called J no.

When he said to the woman, "Harriet, will you take this man for your wedded husband f" she replied, "Yes, air ee." This ended the ceremony ; John (racketed the $3 and bolted, and poor Curren, before morning, discovered he was robbed of his watch and >8 in money, and his wife amongst the missing. Officers Baker and Feeny, of the 8th Ward arretted the pretended wife, and Mrs. Banford, and the pair are both locked up for examination on a charge of larceny. Common Plena. Before Judge Ingraham.
