THJ Vol. XII, lo. MH.Wkoli Mo. ?KH. ADDRESS TO THE ELEOTORS OF TIIK CITY AND COUNTY OF NEW YORK. The delegate, elected by you to form new or reeiae and amend the pieaent charter of the city of New V oik, hare 1'iacharged tho duty impo?e<l u|?on them, and herewith aubmit lo you for your adoption or rejection the re an wi nieir ucuucmu""*. The duty your delate? were called upon to perform wu of do inconsiderable importanco, mil one encompassed with manv and vaiving dilllcultiea. Id determining the extent to which their work should be carried, they were deeply impressed with the importance of retaining the present chartered rigbta of the city, and same to the conelulion that they ought not to endanger thoae rights and the privilege* now possesatcd by the city, by again submitting them to legislative ordeal. The convention, therefore, determined to retain our present chaitared rights, privileges, and franchises, and to revise and amend the present charter in such particulars as they deemed the public sentiment demanded a change. The convention now submit to the people oi the city three separate articles for their consideration, and which, in compiiaroe with the requirement of the law calling the convention, have to be submitted to the electors separately, and so be voted upon by them. It will, howeve r, be obvious, that a rejection of any one of the amendments will greatly mar the harmony and uaefulnaaa of the other*, and if either doea not meat your approval, it would, doubtless, ba better that all should ba rejected. We feel an abiding confidence, however, that a careful examination of the amendment! now submitted, and a comparison of them with the existing provisions of the city charter, will secure for our lubore your cordial approbation and support u The convention propose? i. That the corporate name and franchise! of the city be retained as thay now exist, except as modified by the amentln ants they have adopted. That tne executive power of the city shall be veated in the mayor and the heads of the various departments.? i nut tae power* ana duties ol me mayor (ball be tbe tame as now existing. That there aholl be eight departmenu for the transaction of the business of the city, with appropriate and necessary bureaus. F.iThe municioal department, to have the general charge of the archives of this city, documents and papers of the common council, all laws passed by the same, and to have charge.-of the<eeal of the city and mayoralty, and to atlix the same according to law. The police department to have the charge of the police of the city, under the general supervision of the mayor. The department of finance, to which appertains all the fiscal concerns of the city. The head of this department is the comptroller, who. in addition to his general supervision of the tlnaneea of the city, is to make full and detailed reports of the city expenditure*. The street department, having charge of the streets, sewers, fee., and all matters appertaining thereto. The department of repairs an l supplies, to which is committed eli matters of repair to public property, and the management and control thereof. The Croton aqueduct department, having charge of the Croton aqueduct, and matters relating thereto and connected therewith. The alms house department, having charge of the alms house and the city prisons. The law department to which is cnmmi?i..i ?n ti.? legal business of the city, or io which it may interested, i The head* of these various departments ate to be elected by the people for two years, and the heads of the bureaus in the several departments are to be appointed by the mayor, on nomination to and approval by the board ef aldermen. The heads of the various departments and heads of bureaus are to appoint the clerks in their respective offlcss, and all other officers are to be appointed in such manner as the common council shall direct, except that no such appointment shall be made by the common ' council or any member thereof. The legislative power of the city is to be vested in a board ol aldermen and assistant aldermen, to be elected anuually. i'.ach ward is to elect an alderman, and suoh number ef assistant aldermen as it may be entitled to under the ratio established. Tho common oouncil are hereafter to hold three stated sessions in each year, and to pass all such laws for the management, good government, and general welfare of the city, as they may deem expedient, not inconsistent with or prohibited by the constitution of the United Biatee, or the constitution or any law ef this state The usual (lowers of legislative bodies are conferred upon 1 ith boards, who, together, form the common council < imo ciiy, una are. in aucase*, to act separate and diit.nct fiom each othor, and have a negative on each other'i proceeding*. i'We have imposed many restriction* on the powe ra of the common council, to which we invite your pellicular attention, aDd the opeiation ot which will, we think, induce a rigid economy in public expenditure, amor* careiul pietection of the right* and property of individual Citizen*, and tbejust preservation ot peisonal liberty. The annual charter election i* to be held at the time oi the general state election, thus relieving our citizen* from the expense and vexation consequent upon our frequent elections. It is conceited on ail hand*, that the ciiange of the time of otir charter election Irom the time of the general election to the spring of the year, haa entirely failed in the only object of that change?the aeparaion of our city ad'aiia liom the inilueiice of general politic*. We believe that better and more competent persons will hu .>i..-i.v 1? fill ?..? -al ,1 1 ..... .v.vn... w .... vui v../ viuvva, II me/ tin CUUBCU at the time of oar general election, at which time there will always be a full vote, and the attention ofthe public is then more generally atnacted to the qualifications of their agents. The provisions for paying off the city debt and preserving inviolate the faith of the city. moot fail, we be lieve, to secure your cordial appiubation. We believe that our t (forts to secure the prompt and faithful accountability ot all the public officers, the taking Irom them all lees anil perquisites of office, and securing to all a fixed salary, adequate t? ties services rendered, are salutary {reforms, and will be alike beneficial to the public and the individual officer. We have inserted, in the amendments now laid before you, previsions in relation to work done by contract for the city, the effect of which, we think, will be eminently useful. It has long been a just cause of complaint that none hut men of wealth and influence could obtain a contract from tha eity, and that in too many instances the day laborer, through chicanery and fraud, was deprived of the fruits of his toil. Believing that it is W.IUI; urn; ui uid government 10 u(i late lor in* protection of the weak against the machinations and iraud ot the strong, we hare directed our attention to the remedies proper to correct there evila, and we confidently hope our efforts in thia reapact will not hare been in rain. The propositions in reference to to the juaticea of the city, both |>olice and ciril, aie the remit of careful deliberation, and it adopted, cannot, in our judgement, fail to be valuable impiovemeuts. The luciease ol the jurisdiction of the cirii courtawaa called lor I y public sentiment, and the arrangement of iee?, aud*their piompt payment into the city treasury, will ensure a lunu adequate, in our judgement, nearly sutilcient for the support ol these courts, and thus relieve the city ftom the hitherto great expense of maintaining hem Our city treasury will also be relieved of a great expense, and prompt and efficient punishment follow the commission of crime, by the daily sitting ol the police courts, who will perform all the duties now derolriog on the court ol special sessions, which now meets only twice in esch week, and cannot dispose ol the criminals then reedy for trial. They bare consequently to be detained, at a large expense to the city, (he guilty with the innecui>t;a tysicm alike injurious to the uterests of the city and the cause ol morals and good government We have also insetted e pioviiion for the future amendment of the city charter, rendering it feasible for the luture to eograit upon it at a email expense, and littlo trouble, such improvements, as time and the exigencies of the city may suggest.! We have thus, fellow.citizens, briefly called your attfiiitiun to the mo&tiinnorlBuf ni ikn h.?ve tuggested fcr your consideration.

If the leault of their labora ahall meet the approving voice of their conatituenta, the convention indulge* the coi.ndtnt hope, that, for the future, our municipal affairs will be so adminiitered as to advance wilh^rapid strides the glory and renown of our commeicial metropolis,and serine lo every citizen thereof the end and aim of all trne governments?equal protection in the enjoyment of tl.eir iuabenable rights, " life, liberty, and tne pursuit olh ppiness " K* nrHarrtf ?Vi? ~J ABRAHAM V.

A well authenticated report ia prevalent here, that a Cabinet Council haa decided upon an immediate attack upon vera i^ruz, uj ? comoinan movement 01 our army anil naval forces. It ia further stated that derpatchei to thia efleet are already on their way. (From the New Orlenns Timea, Oct 19) Yeaterday, Lieut. Chad wick, of the U. S Revenue Marine, arrived in the city from off Vera Cruz, bringing intelligence from the Squadron to the fitli imt, at which date he left. He came to the South-weat Paisia the Revenue Cutte - Ewing. There waa little ef importance stirring in that quarter, although varioua rumors reached our ships, from time time, from the shore, all, however, of such a vague nature as to bid defi ince to any inge nuity to fix en them any kind of precision that would render them ot sufficient interest to record. Uen. Teredos, who had been for some time a prisoner in the Castlr of San Juan de Ulloa. has been set at liberty, on condition of going into voluntary exile He left Vera Cruz on the Ud instant, in the last British steamer, for Havana the usual asylum of fallen Mexican greatness So the wheel of fortune turns?now this votary of ambition u|>nermost. now that Another revolution of the ever roll. ingembiem?another fit of caprice on the part of the inconstant goddeaa?a shift of the popular breeze, nana popularii aura, and the two irapenous soldiers.who have succeeded each other in ruling the destinies of their com mon country, may once more change places, to be again supplanted as popular favor ebbs and flows. He was treated with much respect ai he quitted the shore the Castle firing a presidential salute. No hostile demonstration had been lately made by the Squadron ; things were precisely in statusquo?just as they were when the last news reached us. He ports however, were current among the ships, and implicitl) believed, that another attack was soen to be made on Alvarado. The rumor to this effect gained forre in con sequence of the recent capture by one of the U. S vessels of a Mexican brig, which was in process of refitting for some such purpose as the one here mentioned. Thenwas another piece ef intelligence rile amongst the ofli cers and crews of the Squadron, which produced some sensation. It was to the effect that Commodore Peny would supersede < ommodore Conner in the chief com iu&uu uu lue in uruwuiu. nowi uau ueen receiveu r?j the Utter, from Vera Cruz, of the assault on M once re > by the Amerioen trmy, end the severe conflict between the two force*.

The U. 8. schooner KUrt sailed on the 3d insUnt for Norfolk. The crews ot the several ships of the Blockading Squadron were in the best possible health, and all were eager for sn opportunity ot showing their mottle in a conflict with the enemy. The U. 8. steamer Mia sissippi tor Pensacola, the schooner Ueofer (which bad been blown off to sea tweaty days previous, and for whose safety much apprehension had been lelt) and ? schooner loaded with coal for the use of the Squadron, were spoken o.T the harbor of Antonio Lizardo.all bonne in. No news of the movements of Santa Anna f ince lit has assumed the command of the army, or the prog rest of the measures taken by the Mexican government tc make head against the invading army, had reached the Souadron. from Vera Cruz. Lieutenant Chadwick, to whom we are much indebted for hia polite readineaa in putting all hia information ai our diapoaal, telle ua that it waa the captain of the Bri tiah frigate Endymion, lying at Sacrtncios, that aen Commodore Conner newa of the capture of Monterey The Texan Ranger, alluded to below, waa taken priao ner on the 0th May laat, near Matamoraa, and had been conveyed to Tampico, whence he had eecaped to Tutpan, where he got a boat and put oil',to the fleet. The Somen and the St. Mary'a were atill blockading Vera Cruz; the Falmouth and Porpoise Tampico. The Somen bad recently been blown off, for 10 daya The Mexican schooner lately taken, had been fitted up with four 41 pound carronadea, and would lead the attack on Alvarado. They were only waiting the arrival of a supply of coal to go down to that place; and as the cu bWIIIK Uiw* HI? ? ? ?? MMi? WMUM RVI1IK into harbor, no doubt the attempt on Alvarado haa been made. The Commodore daily lent out a flag of truce into the harbor of Vera Cruz, for communication with tbe hore The Mexican* inhabiting the ahore near Antone do Lizardo very freely came off, from time to time, with vegetable*, fruit, Qah, lie., for the uae of the ahipa. The cutter atopped oft Braaoa but had no communica tion with the ahore. Whilat lying there, the ateamer Sea came out with the mail for the Ualveaton, but on account of the heavy aea, ?he waa unable t o deliver it, and waa Anally compelled to return. One of Waiker'a Ranger*, who had been taken priao ner by the Mexican*, previoua to the battle* of 8th and 9th of May laat, had aucceaded in making hia eacape, and got off to th* aquadron. He waa brought to Braaoa by the cutter, and left her with tbe determination to have a hand in whatever might turn up. Lieut Chadwick brought up a letter bag from the aquadron.

The natives, disgusted with the sway of mi- : litary chieftains, are flying to it for repose, for hope, and the blessings of a republican government. Our government cannot pull it down if they wanted, or ; make it stay down. The people will run it up again : they are determined to establish a new State ana connect themselves with our Union. Mexico cannot prevent this. She has had but very little to do with California for years; and has abandoned her to the cruel sway of bloody usurpers, till the people have at last risen in arms. We are going to aid them, and if yon cannot And a defence of our conduct in the let-alone policy, then look into the obligations of humanity, which roat on nations as on individuals. Having established a tree representative government, extending its protection alike to all classes, we expect to withdraw.

Fxtract of a letter from an officer in the squadron, dated oil4 Vera Cruz, Sept 29:? " The file of the El Indicator and other journals contain intelligence of passing events, with nearly all the decrees issued since the formation of the new cabinet, for the increase ef the military force, and regulation of the other branches of the government. The national guard is being organized; and from the statements in the public papers, the measure would seem to be a popular one. as the citizens are eaidto offer themselves freely to be enrolled The decree embraces every citizen from the age of sixteen to fifty. The citizens of Pueble havo armed and equipped a force of one thousand men, at their own expense, for the service of the government. Gen. Santa Anna entered the city of Mexico on the 14th inst. with great parade In his letter, written to the minister of war on the occasion, he states his intention of proceeding immediately to aaauma the command of the army on the northern frontier, and disclaims any design of accepting the supreme power, if his services are required in the Geld. " The report which was previously mentioned of his having given orders to the army at Monterey to fall back on San Luis Potosi, is contradicted by Gen. Mejia, in a despatch dated at Monterey, Aug 24th. He states that a force of eight thousand men will soon be assembled thero, and that he will defend the place to the last extremity, it u said that our army is in possession of Santa Fe. The present government has manifested great activity since its accession to power, and adopted every measure for a vigorous prosecution of the war. Detachments of troops from the city and other parts of Mexico, with 30 pieces of artillery, have been lately despatched to the north, and by the end of tha month it is not unlikely they will have a fjrce of 1&.000 men?or perhaps more, in the neighborhood of Monterey. It is difficult to sa> how this large force is to be kept in tha held, as it is well known the public treasury is empty The only money received by the government, within our knowledge, are the small sums contributed by private individuals, not sufficient to maintain a regiment for a month." Army Intelligence. Extract of a letter trom a distinguished officer of Gen Wool's oommand, communicated to the f/rnun, dated ? San Antonio ds Betas, Sept. 31, 181fi The knowing ones here say that we shall have a clever light before reaching Chihuahua, and soma of them prediot a defeat Perhaps, after all, we may reap laurels if peace doe* not arreat ua. We are getting on well and harmoniously. Tha Illinois volunteers are really good aoldiera, and I think will prove efficient Gen. Wool is very popular end very rigid. He talks plainly to the volunteers, but they seem to like it. The General has axhibited great knowledge of the details of service, and a high degree of administrative talent. On the whole, I think we may look lor ward to an interesting and succsssful campaign, but it will be one of hardships and privations. Naval Intelligence.

Intuit to Him?Punithment?Homo of Pni t?M in m For the lut tan day*, tba arrivals from different points in Venezuela, have brought rumor* of outbreaks and re* volutionary measure*, upon the part of its people, owing to feelings>roused by the Presidential question between the rival pai ties. Report says that Oen. Paez upon the one'hand, and Ouzrnan upon the other, had taken the field at the Lead of large bodies of men, and, already, there had been some bush fighting; while their admirers were emulating their examble by quarrelling, wherever there were to be found enough "patriots" and "liberals," to raise a row. Paez's term of office as President soon expires, and Uuzman is the candidate of the "libersds," or the party opposed to the present administration. Vou remember that Paez, when declining to be nomi nated again for President, stated that it his country called, he was over ready to place himself at the head of hflr firmv Nil Annmini slat* that whan ha mad* that remark, he had the present crisis in view. Aa far aa I can understand, from what I hear, the question of emancipation of the ulrtvea, lays at the bottom ofthe whole affair, y eara ago, maaaurea were adopted by congres for bringing thia atep about, which it ia said, Pacr. and his party want to set aside This, coupled with the assertion, that Paez is one of the greatest slave-holders, and cruel masters in the republic, makes capital kindling wood for the one other aide are equally strenuous iu denouncing Oooaeman aa an enemy to the republic and her institutions, crying him down aa an inc ndiary who has swelled his ranks by bodies of runaway slaves, who are already stamped aa guilty of murder and incest as individuals, now about, as an army, to bring desolation and destruction upon ttia whole country. That ia acting in uniaon with their brother soldien, who are the free ne groea and half breed. Remember thet what I state ia gleaned from conversations held with the diffeient masters of vessels who brought tho news here, this being the only means of gsining any information upon tho (Object, end for tno truth of tho detail 1 cannot vouch A short time since a sloop iaden with corn was dispatched from here for one 01 their small ports; she has returned, not daring to atop to offer even her cargo for sale, an account of the excitement, and ie now reUndmg it. There are a large number of email veasels under the Veneznelisn flax iavinx ud hate, and the list is swelled daily, they being afiaid to piocaed to aaa, under lh? present state of affairs. On the llth, the populace here were thrown into consternation by the report that the excitement had reached the before tranquil province ef Coro. and that the persons and property, ot the unoffending neutrals there were in jeopardy. There is not only a province, but also a city called Coro, together with its seaport, termed the " Bala it Cere." The only merchants ot note in Coro are Curecoa people, resident there, doing businesa as foreigners, and not only all the trade, but all the ready capital is in their hands It was said as regarded these people, that all business was put St an end; and that in their tear ; for personal satety, they had abandoned their property, and fled with their families to the seabeech and menn- ] tains. Of this I am certain, that the Governor of thia , place has been called upon for aid, and that he instantly , despatched a man of-war to Coro, which vassal was accompanied by ('apt. Jones, in the late revenue cottar [ Krujamin Rti'h, for tlio purpose of bringing tho distressed people hero. This will be very detrimental to tho Curacoe trade ? Cut aeon may bo compared toa magazine or warehouse, where are stored all foieifn importations ready to bo shipped to the order of the Coro merchant, who exohengea these ware* again for sugar, hides and thins, which ere forwarded to Curaeoe, and the two last named articles, after hetag received sad re peeked, an shipped te 1 ERA [846. the United StatoMho major part being aont to New York ' The Argui. now loading here, will reke all the ikini in market, and where there need to he daily arrival! from the main, theie are none coining in now, nor can any he expected until tranquility ia restored What were in the hand* of ipeculatora, sold at an advance, to an- ' i?er consignment! and All order!

The preoent Govern) r I is a Major of the army, who has nrisen trom the ranks. He is a smart man, with an eye to economy, and rattier a martinet, aud makes a most excellent Governor. Theio is one of the privates of the garrison to be shot here in a short time, for an outrageous insult or assault ottered to the person of the Governor The Governor's residence is within the fort, and it appears while he was sitting at his window he saw this soldier attack a corporal, who was overseeing his labor, as he swept a portion of the ramparts, as a punishment for some minor offence. By the Governor's order he, for so doing received, fifty lashes. His punishment ended, the Governor addressed him, telling him he hoped it would prove a lesson, he. The man called the Governor a liar, and threw his hoavy uniform cap in his face. Since then he evinces no show of regret or fear, and during his trial maintained the same insolence which will cost him hi* lite. There i* also a negro girl awaiting her trial, being charged with poisoning a whole family, by mixing some ingredient with a fish stew she was cooking. It was supposed by some that the fish itself was of a poisonous nature, hut the girl upou being questioned admitted she was guilty, that her mother gave her the drug. The only reason she could have was that she, with the estate itself, had changed owners, the original proprietor dying, by which means she expected her freedom. Being disappointed, in her rage she sought revenge in the manner alluded to.

[From the Richmond Knquirer, Oct 26 ] The case of the Commonwealth *e. W R. Myers, S. 8 Myers, and Wm. 8 Burrwas continued (not, however, in the legal sense of the term) before the Hustings Court on yesterday. The whole day very nearly wai occupied in the reading of the letteri of Mra Myeri, introduced chiefly in behalf of the Commonwealth. It ii understood that they are brought forward to rebut the evidence given in by the defence, to falsify the dying declarations of Hoyt. Several letters not read in the Mayor's court, and not yet published, were produced They go still further into details, with respect to the intimacy that subsisted between Mrs. Myers and Hoyt. Some additional oral testimony was elicited. Mr. B F. Mosby was examined by the prosecuting attorney, in relation fto a (letter written to Hoyt bv nim, and signed " Spectator." The letter was acknowledged by Mr. Mosby, and it will be found below. The defence called Dr. Cabell to prove that Mrs. Myers was not badly treated whilst at his house, and Messrs Farneyhaugh and Oibson to prove that Ho)t had been seen during the past winter to go to the house of a mulatto woman of ill fame, named Ann White, or Ann Jackson, in the suburbs of Richmond, in one or both ef Mr. W R. Myers' carriages, from which a female of medium size, having two veils on, " was rushed out,"and carried into the house on several occasions. The delence then propo-ed to submit the case without argument; but the prosecuting attorney considered it hi* duty to address the court, giving his view of the law ol the case He proceeded to read authorities and argue the question till alter 10 o'clock, P. M. ?when, (contrary to the expectation of a very large audience, who generally supposed the case would be decided.) one of the jus tices announced his physical inability to sit longer, inasmuch as be had been on the bench ten hours. '1 he court was, therefore, adjourned, until this morning at 10 o'clock. Ms D. M Hott.
