NEW YORK HERALD. \i-\v Vork, Wednesday, October 'AH, 1846, To Our Friends. The election in this State, and in the State of New Jersey, will come on in a few days, anil as usual, the public will look to this journal for the earliest returns. To enable tis to give them, as soon as possible, we must ask our friends in the interior of those States, to send us by mail or otherwise, the results in their particular localities, as correct as th?y can procure them If the full vote cannot be obtained, we would be thankful for the majorities W>11 our friends remember ihfa 1 The Mew City Charter. This journal exclusively, published the new Uity Charter yesterday, lor the uenent ot thoso i who are to pa-a upon it next Tuesday. To-day we publish the address of the members of tho convention, and hope that all our citizens will road it, as well as the charter, so that they may vote understanding^. Tobacco Tra4e of the United II tat re?Commercial System*. Sometime since we alluded to the importance of this trade, and to the restrictions which have been placed upon it by the government of every coun- j try with which we have any extensive commercial intercourse We pointed out the absence of reciprocity in the commercial systems of those countries which make the greatest pretensions to free trade ; and urt'l the onerous restriction? alluded to are removed, they cannot lay any claim to that freedom of commercial intercourse so much talked of The immense duty imposed upon this article impoited into Gieat Britain, raises the average per cent duty upon our staple productions to a higher point than that imposed upon the products and manufactures of Great Britain imported into t.iis country With all the oomplaiats in Great Britain against our pietective tariff, as it has been called, we approach much nearer free trade than that government , does. Tho annexed table of prices current in the Liv erpool market, at the latest date, With the duty charged, will exhibit the rate exacted on this article imported into Great Britain.

The specific duty is three shillings sterling per pound, which amounts, in several instances, as will be seen above, to eleven hundred per cent.? This is enormous, and upon any other article in our list of exportations would amount to prohibition, and even upon this it checks the consumption very materially. These restrictions we want removed; and amidst all the modifications in the tariff of Great Britain, not the slightest alteration or improvement has been made in relation to this article. The extent of this trade, and the importance of a reduction in the duty, will be seen in the annexed table, which exhibits the exportation from New Orleans for the past year,compared with previous ones, distinguishing the destination.

The shipments to England thi- year were nearly double those of last, the decrease being confined to the shipments to the north of Europe and to France The coastwise shipments also show a great decline. About onefou rth of the ai/ffm.rstA urnnrtslinn nf this o.i.rtla % from this country goes to Great Britain ; our next best customers are the Germans. More than two- thirds of our total shipments of tobacco go to England, the Ilanse Towns and Holland. Tne production of tobacco in the United States just about keeps pace with the demand for conS umption. The result, for a series of years, shows this, but the iluctuav'ons from year to year have been very great. The fluctuations in the value of this staple have, within the past ten years, been enormous,varying, from one year to another, from three to five millions of dollars. We cannot satisfactorily account for these extremes in prices, as the production, in the aggregate, for a term of years, has been quite uniform. The annexed table, showing the quantity produced in this country, the quantity exported, and the ave- , rage value of each hogshead exported, will give a better idea of the trade in the article than anything else:?

Our government is determined to leave no elfort untried to bring about a revolution in this ar" ticle, but we fear it will be unsuccessful; if so, the only alternative is to levy retaliatory duties upon the staples of those countries, the commercial systems ol which almost prohibit the importation of our tobacco. Our planters feel the ab- ' senceof markets, and the cultivation of the plant is to a very moderate extent, to what it would be, if it was not so generally adopted by European governments as a source ol customs revenue. : We have had it in our power once to modify j t'.ie commercial system of the Zollverein in ; relation to this article, but the Senate did not think proper to ratify the treaty form- i ed for that purpose. After the government had despatched agent after agent to the Hanse Towns far the express purpose ol obtaining concessions j in tavor of tobacco, and our minister bad perfected a treaty to that effect, the Senate refused to ratify it, and the matter dropped. I lie present administration have taken the thing in hand, and we hope it will be more successtul. Mr. Bancroft, oar minister at the Caurt of St. lames, has special instructions to enter into ne.otiations upon this point; and we hope lie will devote his great talents to the subject until proper eonceesions sra made How can a Oovarn- i ment talk about free trade, whilit its tariff con- ' tains suoh a prohibitory duty as that levied upon ' tobacco imported into Great Britain! We want nothing of free trade but its practical operation All theories are humbugs. We are a matter oi lact, an astonishing people, and the staple products of such a great country as this must reach the con?umers ns free from restrictions and taxes as the soil on which they are raised. Kzoro f't'XFRiOK ?We have had, within a few days, a practictlexemplification of the ala-m ng consequences which would accrue to us as a community, from an injudicious extension of negro suflrage The neighborhood of out Halls of Justice has been for some days pas' in a state of alarming excitement, in consequence of the temporary detention of a slave named George Kirk, who lately absconded from his master in Georgia, and succeeded in stowing himself on board the Mobile, a vessel Wound for New York, without the knowledge of the captain or crew. On the arrival of the vessel in this harbor, a writ of habeas corpus was procured, and the slave was brought before Judge Edmonds, in the Court of Oyer and Terminer, where the matter has been undergoing judicial investigation for several davs pa?t Hiring the trial the neighborhood of the City Hall has been crowded with the colored popula j ton of the Five Points, and other similar localities, who have behaved in the most outrage; us possible manner, and have several times threatened to rescue the slave from he hands ot justice. This riotous disposition on the part of the negroes manifested itself yesterday to such a dan- j gerous extent, that in bringing tha slave to court, the assistance of the Mayor and a strong bo ly of police was necessary to prevent a rescue, and our citizens were kept all the morning in a high state of excitement. When, in tl.eir present disfranchised condition, these negroes manifest so dangerous a spirit of insubordination to the laws, who will maintain that it would be wise to entrust to them the power of modifying, and even of subverting those laws which are trie sa'e-guards of society 1 Every man of common sense is aware that the colored racr, if enfranchised, would hold the ba lance 01 power in our elections, and then, what scenes of anarchy and lawless violence would wo not witne?s. The first city in the Union would bo under the control of a violent and ignorant mob, and such scenes as have been onacted within the last few days would be of daily occurrence. Those humane gentlemen who would cure a pimple on the face of the body politic by superinducing a gangrene of the entire system, should ponder , well before they indue with the privileges of freemen a race whose laws are their passions, and ' whose ignorance, as a class, disqualifies them from wielding, without injury to themselves and others, a power which should only belong to en- : lightened citizens. The War?Drafting Troops.?We are sorry, ! lor the honor of our country, that the litde petty i small minded opposition to the present war, ^ which arose simultaneously with the commence- i ment ot hostilities, still continues among a por- ) tion of the press. The other day it was stated in one of those ; journals, that in consequence of the disbanding of the six months volunteers, because they would not engage for twelve months, the government will be compelled to resort to a draft, if it wants additional force to carry on the war. This sta'ement is false on its face, because the names . of two hundred thousand volunteers are now in 1 the possession of the Secretary of War, every one of whom would be ready to march to Mexico in i twenty-four hours notice. The authors of such mean attempts to embar- : rass the administration, are deserving of pity, more than condemnation. The country is una- j nimous in prosecuting the war vigorously. The Postmaster General and the Postmas- | TKRS.?It anDHIirnthiittViK Pn?tmmt?r U<n?n>l addressed a circular to the postmasters through- ! out the country, directing them, as they value j their offices, to be attentive to their business, and perform their duties personally as much as possible, and not have them performed by any deputies, no matter how careful and faithful We are extremely gratified at this, and have no , doubt, that if the postmasters obey these instruc- ; tions, the mails will be more regular than they have been since the meeting of the New York | State Convention. If a man holds an office worth four or five thousand dollars a year, it is not asking too much to have him attend to it himself, instead of throwing the responsibility on the shoulders oi a deputy, who, perhaps, does not receive over seven hundred dollars for his ser- i vices. We congratulate the public on the change. Jkrsey City Frrry Company ?We are inform- j ed from very good authority, that at a meeting of the stockholder; of the Jersey City Ferry Company, held last vtreek, a resolution was passed by a j majority of one, fixing the rae of ferriage on and | after the fifteenth day of November next, at three cents for foot passei gets. We are further informed, that it is the 1 intention of the company to put on an additional boat during the evening, so that passengers will not be compelled to congregate in hundreds around the slip as heretofore, waiting for a boat, and that this arrangement will go into effect as soon as possible. We are not willing to award any praise to this ! Company for these changes, for the value of1 the stock will be enhanced considerably* while the expenses will be but a trifle additional. , Self-interest dictated them. Navai. Preparations?While our land forces are hewing their way to the heart of Mexico, our navy is about to commence active service on the coast. The preparations in the navy department are of the most energetic description. Another commodore, to assist those now in the Gulf, is about to be sent down to the squadron. Commodores Stewart and Ridgely are both understood to have applied for the command The three shipsof-the line, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Ohio, are being overhauled, preparatory to being despatched to the Gulf. The ulterior object of all , these preparations is an attack on San Juan ; d'Ulloa. As for Tampico, it is expected that it will fall an easy prey. The Steamers Vixen and Spitpirx.?These two vessels, originally built for the Mexican government, but lately purchased by our's, have gone out to Vera Cruz, and on the passage ont have had their sailing powers tested. Their fast cm opocu uiu nui eiceou eigni iDoii an nour, and in twenty-four hours they were unable to make ! more than one hundred and twenty-seven knots.

Previous to the evening named, the artist became, from indisposition, totally unable to appear. A postponement was unavoidable, although most hazardous to his future prospects iu this country, as it would virtu ally have killed any ordinary aspirant for public favor.? But the result proved the high appreciation in which genius is held by the American people. Sivori'x first bouse was excellent, both in numbers and intellectual refinement. Once beard, he wax secure.

We have ao often ipoken of the merits of Mr. Anderson's acting in this part, that it ia needlaaa now to ga into them. He last evening but strengthened the impression which had obtained with us before, that he ia : the beat delineator of the character we have ever seen. He had a most brilliant oudience, and never have we seen him more heartily applauded. Mr. Bass as Dumas, and ' Mrs Vernon as Madame Deschapelles, elicited deserved applause. After the fall of the curtain, Mr. Anderson, in : compliance with the call of the audience, came out, accompanied by Mrs. Hunt, and both bowed their thanks. : Two very promising children, the Misses Denny, appeared in the afterpiece, the " Wandering Boys," and actually astonished the house by the cleverness of their ac I 1-1 l-l.-I.S hi.I fair to distinguish themaelvei.

The procession will pa- , rade the principal streets, and the menagerie will after- ! wards take up its quarters on the late site of Niblo's Oar- { den.

At about half-past aeven o'clock the large room in that building wai well but not densely filled with persona, : who were called to order, and Mr. Shepherd Knapp appointed to preside. Some eighteen Vice Presidents were nominated, and al>outeight Secretariea. The call of the meeting, and the report ol the nominating convention were read amid calls for Starr. Uieeley. ; Tomlinsoa, he. ; but neither of these gentlemen ap j pear ng. Mr KaasTi'a C Brookes addressed the meeting for a lew minutes, although. as he eaid, he waa unable to do so so as to be heard, in consequence of a severe col l j that ha bad recently contracted He said he was like | the majority of whig* when called upon to address their ! fellow-citizens ?reedy at all times and under all circumstances to address hit fellow-citizens in time of need. Alter apologising for want of time to arrange his ideas, he alluded to the glorious victory that had been achieved by the whigs in Pennsylvania aud Ohio, and hoped that the Empire City of the Empire State would net be untrue to the great cause, or fall to re-echo the glorious shout of victory that has been rolling on for some days back. Mr. Brookes then asked the meeting what had become of the great measure of protection which the whigs carried iu Congress two years ago I It has been broken down by the administration which uow curses ' the country. Mr. Brookes then touched upon the war with Mexico, which he said would have ruined the administration long ere this enly for the gallant conduct of the gallant old whig, Zach Taylor.

He , came forward and said, that as a whig he asked for no- t thing, hoped for nothing, and wished for nothing, from I the party. He expected that since the result of the late 1 I'ievidential election, he would have an opportunity to t taunt those who had treated the greatest man of the age ! with the basest ingratitude. He meant, as the Scotcn- 1 man said, to " bide his own time" in doing so, and that < time had now arrived. The defeat of Heury Clay was < owing to that rascally Cato, Silas Wright (cheers), ami t the miserable spawn in the Presidential chair now filled i the place that should be occupied by Henry Clay. 1 (Laughter) In relation to Young, he felt puzzled be- 1 tween his theological friends upon the one hand, aod his t philosophical friends on the other, who bad had soma i controversy on his anti-rent opinions; but Mr. Young, I he would undertake to say, was one of the right sort. ' i (Applause.) In everything. Mr. Young was quite tho i sort of person for them (uheera.) After briefly advert- I ing to] the Mexican war, which he denounced oi a per- i feet trifle in iteeif, and denouncing the measures of the i present administration, he concluded. I Mr. Knoi here read a series of resolutions, embracing i tho whole whig doctrine, and the questions which were I fo ho Has*i/1cirl nnnn at lha annra&p.hinir election. The i resolutions were unanimously adopted. i Mr. Hone, jr., next briefly addressed the meeting. He i called upon nia whig friends to rally at the approaching ' election, and vote the whig ticket, particularly to res- ^ pond to the nomination of Willis Hall He felt conii- I dent that the 4th of November woeld find the great whig 1 party in full possession of that power which had been , wrested from them by the locofocos. After calling upon i his whig friends to rally and fight the cause at the ap- I I preaching election, he concluded amid cheers. Mr. John Mason, of Maryland, was here Intro- ! j duced to the meeting; he said that he was in his native State, and still was almost a stranger to all who surrounded him. About two years ago ne had come to New York from Maryland, where he had re- 1 sided for the last ten years. The resolutions which had < been read spoke of the great victory that had been achiev- ' ad in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. (Cheers ) This I caused much consternation among the locofocos, who , lad already set up a cry. It reminded him of an anec lote, where a man who had a large bull dog?and who, ' c seeing the tails of all the dogs in his neighborhood cut * iff, he called to his nigger and said, " Peter, I say, you, { ake off that dog's tail." " Yes, raassa," replied Peter, i J hie was repeatedly, for several days afterwards, inter- . * runted hy the loud cries of the bulldog ; upon which he ? ailed for Peter, and asked him, thus" I say, Peter, did J I not desire you to take off that dog's tail f" Peter re- ' died?" oh, yes, massa, I am a doing of it." And so it * lAAftfnrtAe Kav warn lnflinff their tail bV I niches, and what would they do when their head waa oil'. [Immense laughter and cheers) After briefly impressng upon the whigs to rally for the cause, and denounsing the Sub-Treasury, he called upon them to give an impetus to the whig movement, and exhorted New York not to be behind hand in the struggle, as her action was looked to at all times with inflnite importance by the country at large, and concluded amid cheering. John J. Srxxn, of Tompkins county, next came forward, and said that the onward movement of the whig party, withstood, like the Great Western, the mighty storms that had suirounded the whig cause for so long a period. He denounced also the measures of the Administration. The meeting was next addressed by Mr. Komeyn, following the same ' ground as those who preceded him. The meeting separated. City Intelligence. Thi Slavs Case ?Long before the time fixed for opening the Court of Oyer and Terminer yesterday morning, a very disorderly and excited mob of colored people flecked to the City Hall, and some abolitionists also appeared in the crowd Several uttered threat' of an intention to rescue the slave, who was to have been brought from the TombsThe Mayor ordered out a large police force, who had to march from the City Hall towards the Tombs, and immediately returned with the slave, George Kirk. The Chief of Police, Mr. Matsell, remained at the City Hall with a small force, and his arrangements to prevent any symptoms ot riot weie admirably planned. The police soon returned with the slave, who appeared quite a young lad of about 18 years of age, dre?ed in thn blue clothing. He passed iuto the City Hall, the ' observed of all observers,'' and appeared unconscious of the tumult that his presence had aroused in New York In a tew minutes after entering the Court room, Judge Edmonds delivered his opinion, whereby the prisoner was discharged from custody, and was immediately liberated. He was immediately borne from Court by a vast crowd of colored people, and a shout ot exultation was immediately raised He was next carried to a basement in Beekman street, corner of Nassau, where he partook of some refreshments, and a large crowd assembled round the place, anxious to catch a glimpse of the "liberated slave." The nere cuugieK?m iu u""u ?"" -u.uv.= ^ a, , lor came lorwanl and ordered the crowd to disperse. f The police here dispersed the crowd, and a cry was < railed that a feoond warrant wai iiiued, upon which tin i -i rreateit consternation wai again ra'seil There wai . t much excitement during the day, as the colored people i teemed determined to resist a second arrest; the owner Df the liberated slave having arrived, it was rumored, j in New York, with a view to effect the same. The captain of the brig Mobile, in which the slave secreted him ell, not feeling satisfied with the decision of Judge Edmonds, in discharging the slave, concluded to arrest him sgain on his own responsibility, under an act entitling h the captain of any vessel coming to this port, who should have on board of such vessel a runaway slave, to arrest him forthwith, and bring him before the Mayor or Recorder of the city for ajjudtca'ion?consequently, he ap- , pointed several policemen to act as agents in assisting him to make the arrest, and amongst this number, were officers Bloom anil Boyle of the Chief's office, an i officer Corey, of the'id ward, who kept a strict watch on the j basement, where the object of their search was taken in- i to, end in the course ot the afternoon, they observed a | cartman to drive up in Nassau near Beekman street, and I soon after, they saw two Urge boxes, apparently ol some i weight, taken irom the basement in Nassau street, placed I U)>on the cart, aod drove off" This created the suspi- ' t cion ol the officers, (who having been instructed by the 1 t chief of police, to examine everything minutely that t might he carried out of the basement) and following tho < cart into Park Row, officer Boyle, Jumped upon the cart t to examine the boxes, and saw the largest one of the two ' labelled ] ooooooooooooooooooooooooeooooooooooooooooooooooO 1 j Rev.

Ofllcar Corey then jumped upon the cart to aaaaiat Bloom, who. both together, conducted him before the chief of police, and lrom there to the Court of Seaalona in Centre atreet, where hit Honor the May or and Reoorder were aittlng to hear the caaa; but before the caae came ?p, a writ of haitti cornut waa i etved upon hia Honor tne Mayor, iaaued by Judge Eilmonda, requesting the Mayor to produce George Kirk , the alave, forthwith, before him at hia Chambera. However, upon a polite requeat of the Mayor, Judge Edmonda came to the Court of Sessions to receive the return to the writ. When, after a few retnarka from the counaal on both aidea, the return to the writ waa poatponed until to-day at 10 o'clock, in the above court.? Meanwhile the alave remaina in the cuatody of tho Mayor, who committed him to the tomba, to be lorthcoming when wanted. A great excitement ia expected, particularly amongat the negroea, and an immenae crowding will be experienced in obtaining admittance to the ceurt.

On the entrance of the faculty, they were tainted with the long continued greeting* of the cla**, knd when thi* had subsided? Prufeeaor Mott *ro*e and delivered a very interestng lecture, of which we give a ha*ty sketch He comnenocd by congratuleting the cla-? on their aafe arrival rom the variou* lection* of the country whence thev lad come foi the purpote of spending the winter, he aiuded to the yearly inrreaiing >ue ofibe claa* a* being a i nirce ofpri le and sati>t*.-tion to the (acuity, an 1 return, id them thank* lor the confidence they *ho?re<l in the inititurion. Ho then *atd that last year he made conservative inrgery the subject of hi* introductory and that he reg' eted that be could not then examine it more luily, and he jurpoaed to de 10 at the preaent time. He bad under- | itood that ?ome erroneon* ideaa had been formed reacting last >ear'a lecture, and on that account al*o he vixhed to apeak more fully oi it. es he wiahed to atand ight in the eye* of the profession rwliu in n .rial in thi* i* ru other particular*. He then went onto aay that tho rerv foundation* of surge.-y reited on thi* principle of lonaervatiam of life and limb, and that medic<1 or conlervative surgery had now become ao systematized that autilationa of the human frame wai no longer the moat -evolting and prominent feature Heinatanced the great mprovement in the treatment of white swelling*; for- i nerly every affection of the knee joint that had any ap earance of thi* disease, waa at once rutbleaaly ampu ted; now it ii *o no more. He ulao apoke of tlie great I riumpha of exaection and reiection of bone in commiluted fracture*, and the great saving of limb* that tad been effected by it. He said, however, that i vast judgment was requisite to know when to cut I and when to withhold the knife; and this must be learn- l ?d by experience alone?books could not teach it. He then went onto rpeak of plastic surgery, and afterward* lo tenotomy, aud the great triumphs achieved by the bloodless and almost painless operations of the latter, i as evidences of the philanthropic and beautiful advances ?f science He had always advocated conservatism in lurgery. His revered preceptor, Sir Astlev Cooper, iiad instilled that precept into nis mind. In fact, all the i great names in surgery had advocated it Witness the works of the Coopers, DelpecU, Lurrey, Civiale, &tc ; ind, indeed, now the mot'o was not Drlmia est Carthago, but Comtrtanda nf Carthago. He would, however, comfort young aspirants lor surgical honors, by assuring them that there was no danger of their art being curtailed?it would be always in demand. Among the instances of the usefulness of conservative surgery, he I would refer to the case ot the lamented Ringgold, who I (ell on the Add of Palo Alto. It was the application of I the ligature which prolonged his life until be heard the glorious news of the complete success of his country's irins The lamented Paige, too, his life was preserved , by the ligature, long enough for him to receive the ap- i [dense 01 his country; and also to meet with his devoted wife Both these heroes owed the lengthening of their lays to the great principles of conservative surgery, i Many others, who were wounded on the fields of Palo . Mto and Resaca de la Palma, were, doubtless, entirely ^reserved by similar means. Gentlemen?we will ' eave Monterey and Mexico until next year's lecture. But he would here remark, tint all these conquests | would increase the field of usefulness for surgeons? I Mexico. California, lie., would be open to them. The earned Professor then went en to impress on the minds >f the class, the absolute necessity of their having a borough knowledge of 'ho anatomy of the human body, i is that was,the only sure basis and platform of all snccess ; n surgery; and without it no one could make hie knowedge portable, or apply it skilfully and advantageously. 1 He insisted on the necessity of being perfectly familiar I with all the operations of minor surgery, as without that 1 no one could perform capital or even secondary operalions. Tho Professor then spoke of the importance ol a . surgeon's being also a good physician ; in fact, to excel ! in surgery a man must be thoroughly acquainted with all i the remaining branches of medicine, lie concluded by I laying that conservatism was the pride and glory of all : lurgeons?still, that when operations were imperatively ; tailed for that everv surgeon ought to have the coolness ind determination so requisite for their enccessful per- ; 'ormance. He alluded to the many operations which were now almost superseded. The triumphs of the Dublin ; mrgeons in compression of arteries, threatened to remove it one fell swoop all the operations attendant on aneurism. / rhe skill and ingenuity of a Civiale might ultimately ; wrest lithotomy from their grasp; still enough was left ind always would be, and for his part he should always told on to the scene of his former triumphs, the jaw. ( The above is a very hasty sketch of the address. It was received with great applause, and the large crowd separated much pleased with this the opening of the sea-ion. rhe professors of the other branches wul deliver their introductories every evening this week.

Before Judge Edmonds, an<l Aldermen Jackton end Johnson. In Re George Kirk? The blave Case ?Judge Edmonds >ronounced tne judgment of the court yesterday mornng in this matter, and discharged the slave. The two srTocipal grounds taken by his Honor were, fiist, that .here was no person who could legally claim him, that s, the Captain of the Mobile was neither expressly, or >y implication, the agent of Mr. Chapman, his owner ; ind, secondly, that the law of Georgia, which required he delivery of iugitire slaves to their owners, did not ~efer to runaway slaves after tbey had pasted the limits >f Georgia. Alter the judgment was delivered, there was some confusion in court, partly owing to the cariodty of a part of the crowd to get a sight of George, and jnrtly to the anxiety of the negroee who were in attendince, to lay banda on him and carry him off. They sueseeded, in spite of the officers, In grasping him, and hur ied him through the passage and down atairw, without allowing him to lay bis feet on the ground. A carriage was in waiting in front of the City Hall, in which they thruat him, and thea drove off at full speed in lha direction ol Beekman street, where we lost turther trace of him. From an early hour in the morning the Park, both in front and rear ef tha City Hall, was crowded with negroee of beth sexes We should suppose not lets than 3000. As soon as tbey heard below that he was dis charged, wnicn wai lomi minutes r>efore ne got aewn, inch was the shouting that we thought the hall would tumble about our ears, we understand that the Captain ol the Mobile procured a warrant from the Mayor to arrest him again, and detain him until a claim comes from his owner It would seem, however, that Judge Edmonds, in giving his judgment, says that the law empowering the Mayor to hold him is repealed by an act of Congress; but be this as it may, we believe there was a negotiation going !on yesterday between the aboliiionista en one side, and the corporation counsel and chief ot police on the other, for the purpose of delivering him up, in order to test the right of the Mayor under this law; but how the negotiation has ended, we were not able to ascertain.

M. The (tock market wean a brighter aepect. :sorwiou and Worcester went up 3 per cent; Harlem 1. The isle* were almost entirely confined to these two stocks At the second board prices fell off a fraction from those current at the opening in the morning. The Boston money market continues exceedingly easy, and there is no difficulty in obtaining discounts at th8 banks, upon first rate business paper. The Boston share market has been active, without much improvement in prices, with the exception of East Boston, and Norwich and Worcester stocks. Dividend stocks remain quiet; this is particularly the case with the sound railroads, as the near approaching division of profits dis. inclines holders to part with their investments at present prices. If money continues as plenty on the first of January as it is now, there is but little douht that these popular and safe securities will command the present rates, with the dividends off. Most of those dividends will be four per cent, while the intervening interest for sixty days will be but one. The Concord (N. H ) Railroad Corporation has indefinitely postponed the consideration of assuming the construction of the Souhegan Railroad The subject has created a good deal of excitement among the stockholders, and 17.( 00 out of 20.000 shates were represented on the occasion. The majority for indefinite postponement was 1726 The Concord has been one of the most successful enterprises o f the kind that was ever established in this country. It divides ten per cent annually, and its shares readily command over thirty per cent premium in the market. The gross earnings last year war* $228,479; the expenses $135,0J4?leaving $93 424 net, out of which two dividends, of five per cent each, wero $11,424 added to the contingent lund. The second track laid down by the Naahua and Lowell Railroad, the peat year, haa greatly facilitated the business of the line, which haa induced the directora of the Concord road to conatruct a continuation of it between Nashville and Mancheater, and for thia purpose 4 000 new aharea hare been created and taken by the atockholdera, the premium upon which haa been an extra dividend in effect There ia now no doubt of the railroad between Montreal and Troy being apeedily constructed, the atock re quired to be taken up in Montreal having been nearly all aubecribed for. All the movement* made by the railroad companies of the northern and middle section* of thia State, increase the necessity and importance ol a rapid extension of the Harlem road to intersect the great net work ot iron lines, which are so rapidly spreading over the New England States, this State, and the Canada*.
