It is estimated that the sinking fund provided by the constitution for the liquidation of the canal d.bt, will pay it off in about eighteen and a half ysars, but it will not furnish funds fast enough to meet all the payments of that debt as they arrive at maturity. The entire debt of the State at the close of the last fiscal year?the 80th of September ? was H2A.7&1 OftO 95- whirh iiflivirfpH ?? fr?1 Inure? ! NBW Yobk STATE Debt, PEBT. 30,1846. Principal.

It will be seen by the new constitution, that i while the payment of the present debt is amply provided lor, ohecks against any inerease of the ! State debt are sufficiently stringent. No debt an hereafter be created, unless such debt be authorised by a distinct law (or some specific ob ject, and that law shall impose a direct annual tax sufficient to pay the interest on such debt as it j falls due, and the principal within eighteen years i from the time of contracting the same, and that ro such law shall take efleet until it shall have re- : ceived a majority of all the votes, at a genera) eleouon, cast for or against it. The credit ol the State shall not be loaned to aid any individual, ; association, or corporation. Had such a provision existed in the old constitution, says the Comptroller, the tax-payers of ibis State would have saved mors than seven and a quarter millions of dollars. The resources of this State are sufficient to meet all the appropriations required by the new con stitution. and the burdens UDon the treasury will be annually reduced. The capacity of our pub- | lio works is hardly sutHcient to do the amount ol business annually offering, but the excess guarantees a revenue, from the amount of merchandize transported, to meet all the demands upon that fund. The quantity of produce offering for trans- ; portation upon the canals of this .State, is incrcasjtg so rapidly from year to year, that these works can always command a business, at rates of tolls sufficient to give a net income large enough to answer all the purposes required. As soon as the sinking funds for the liquidation of the debts of the State have reached a sum suf. flcient to offset a large portion of the State liabilities, the annual expenditures for interest on the balance of the State debt,will be so limited, compared with what thsy are at present, that very important reductions can be made in the tariff of tolls, without reducing the revenue below a proper point. The financial policy of this State is now brought as near perfection as possible. It is established by the constitution and not by a legislative law, and is, therefore, more permanent and not subject so much to party principles. Th* Uovirnob'S Mmsaoj in thr Leoislatlri. ?We perceive by tho proceeding in tho Housa of Assembly of this State, on Thursday last, that ten times the usual number of copies of the Governor's message were ordered to lio printed by that body, and three hundred and tlfty additional copies for the use of the Governor. If Silas Wright had been elected instead of John Young, we question very much if tho Assembly would have acted so liberally in regard to his message as it has with Mr. Young's; not because Mr. Wright is a demoorat and Mr. Young a whig?not at all?but purely because Mr. Young's message is just about one-tenth as long as the outrageously windy and protracted documents that Mr. Wright was in the habit of inflicting on the few of his constituents who could pare a week from their business to read them; and also, because the expense of printing ten times the usual number of Mr. Young's would aot be any greater than printing the usual num -r mm n? ?... r'BT 3 the same; but what in the world did (his Assembly mean by having 300 extra copies printed tor the Governor himself, or were these to be printed in a different style from the others?on silk witk letters of gold 1 Do enlighten us?O, most sapient legislators of the Assembly. Nobl* Example.?We are delighted to find that there is at least one member of Congress in the whig party, who thinks more of sustaining the honor of his country, than in obstructing the President in his endeavors to bring the war with Mexico to an honorable termination. We allude to Senator Crittenden of Kentuck].

Pari Theatre.?There wai a very large audienoe at thia theatre laat evening, who were, no doubt, attracted thither by the announcement tnat it waa poaitively the last evanlng but out of the preient engagement of the little dancing girla Thii evening, therefore, will be their lift appearance for many montha to came, and we hope to aee aa numeroua, if not a more numeroua audi, ence, than on any night of their engagement. Laat evea iug they appeared in the three divertitementa?" La Paa i dea Moisaoneurs," " La Tyrolienne," and " Le Urand , Paa Oriental," and were, aa uaual, applauded to the echo ' rhe drama of " Matteo Falcone ; or, The Brigand and j hie Son," and the faroe of " Somebody Elae," completed the evening's amuaementa In the former of these Misa Denny peraonated Fortunato Falcone, son of the Bri- 1 gand; and although this young lady i? a mere j child, her acting gives promisu of her reachiug an eminent position in her profession before *hc ia out of her teent As it is, her acquaintance with th , stage, and the instinctive faculty she evidently possesses of identifying herself with the character she assumes, and portteying it naturally and truthfully, render her an interesting and valuable member of the corps dmmatiquc of the Park. The bill this evening is a good one, consisting, as it does of four Divertlsements, by the Dansouses Viennoises, viz: The "Pas des Fleurs," the "Polka Paysane La Tyrolienno," and the "Pas des Moissoneurs,"or the "Wheatsheaf" dance, which has been received with so much delight. Buckstone's comedy of "Popping tho Question;" "Forty and Fitty," and the farce of "My Neighbor's Wife;" the whole being a bill that must fill the house to overflowing. Bowkrt 1 hi:*tbr.?We had another repetition of the "Wizard of the Wave " here last evening, also the "City Burgler." Iiadaway is a host in himself. The company in general acquitted themselves last evening in a highly creditable manner. There are new attractions to be presented here in the course of the ensuing week Mr. Hadaway's benefit will take place this evening, and his claims upon his numerous friends?bis acknowledged talents and popularity, will insure him that cordial rrccption with which he is invariably greeted on on the Bow- , ery boards. As a true and faithful delineator of the rieh and comic characters that usually sustain the present school of broad farce and comedy, few have stronger claims than Mr. Hadaway. His bill will be found highly attractive this evening. asskrican ciscus ?Laat nignt tne nouse wai crowdad. The riding was splendid. The astonishing feats par. formed b- Mr. Carroll and Master Jesse have been the wonder of the house. The Fighting Ponies had their usual "culling match." and May Fly danced with an case and grace that excited the applause of all present. Master Hernandez's riding here, has been frequently and loudly applauded. The whole troujif of performers, in dred, possess talents of the highest order; and the crowded houses that nightly fill the American Circus, is the best test ol the great attractions nightly presented Signor Blitz is performing ot Batavia, in this State.

Barili surpassed herself, and received frequent end hearty applause from the large assembly present. She is evidently becoming more et home among us. Signora.Pico, Beneventano, Benedetti, Sunquirico and Martini, did admirably. The basso certainly improves upon acquaintance. He has learnt to sink his immense voice to the capacity of the building. The choruise* were given with improved effect, and the orchestral brass not quite so sonorous a* we have beard it. The Opera company are now in the full tide of auccessful experiment, and we predict for them a continuation of the favor with which they have been thus far received, Poller Intelligence.

Here I must pause, and say I cannot pretend to describe my feelings at that time Km trade seemed to give way, and in tne midst of this emotion, I ugaiu saw the squadron neariDg to the bar, tho boats manned and the lino passing, (they standing their own pilots over that intricate passage,) and the broad pennant flying at two mast-heads?the blue and red. My faithful Amelia and myself ran to Mr. Chase's oflice, and iu solitude ofl'jr ed a prayer, then pulled the flag down and alone rushed to the house-top I carried it up and tied it on the line with my own hands, and wa?
