The institution is now, in every rcspeot, prosperous \ it is free from financial embarrassment; its real estate, indep?,deut of its books, far exceeds in value the nmouot of its obligations, and its income provides for its current expenses, and for considerable annual additions to the library It has recently erected a noble library edifice, in a central situation, on the principal street of the city, spacious enough for a library of mere titan n hundred thousand volumes Its present library nuinbrrs forty thousand, general ry w?l I selected vol a toes (man? of which are rare and costly); it may, therefore, be said to have laid tne l'oundatiou f rn library nl the first el ass, and such the trustees are determined to make it, if the public will foster it as the importance of the object demands. Attached to she library is a convenient and commodious reading room, well supplied wiih the home and foreiitu journals and newspapers, which offers every accommodation, both for quiet reading and a rapid glnuce at the newa of the d<y. One of the objects now in view is to transfer this dep turnout ol'the library to the first floor of the building, lo render it more accessible to persons whose time is limited, and to extend the library proper over, the whole of the second floor. The institution is not, as many have supposed, an exclusive one. Anv person of fair character m?y become a i, ember of it on application to the librarian, and enjoy us pmiligcs by paying twenty-five dollars, the price of a share,and an annual asssisinent ol six tlnllari : the latter may he commuted at any time by the payment of seventy ive d? liars. Tnis is the condition and character ol'the institution, in whose benefit the public now invited to participate, and for wh se advanennrut their co-operati' n is solicited, it is hoped that every fiiend to the inoial and jntellectuil improvement of our city, every parent who would funiish various and valuable reading to his children, every one who seeks an occasional retreat from the toils and tumults of business, in a word, every one who knows the value of a great library in a great metropolis, and is not now a member of this institution,will immediately become one; and that thn?? who are already members of ii will lend their active and efficient aid in raiting it to the rank which the Trnsieei are now aiming to give it. If tins is done, the Trustees pledge themselves to the public that nothing snail be wanting on their part to carry out tlris great object, and eunble the institution toattaia a character and present an aspect of extent and importance that will make it the boaat and honor of the cirom-rcial metropolis of the Union. let lawSatmfh "HfcHKEW HENEVOLENT SUOlETY."

' And what ia more particular, He (Wolle) climbed ovar rockj which were more thai perpendicular." (Laughter) lie did not know how it happened that thi lacks weie more than perpendicular, hut he hoped tha we should not uae such ridiculous language in recount ing the military achievements of our officers. In re sport to the question of boundary, if we had a title tc the llio Grande under the treaty of Louisiana, ho want ed to know why our Government had not set up tilt title agamit Mexico a quarter of a century ago. Mr bust here offered the following resolution, as s luhititute lor the several resolutions before the Sen ate : ? " Resolved, That in the ju Igment of this Legislator! the tlia- ks of the people of the Hinted States are due u Major General Zachary Taylor, Brigadier Gen Wm. J Woitli, and brig Gen. John K Wool,and the officers an< soldiers under their command, for the fortitude, skill uod bra voi y which they have displayed in their achieve men's in the existing war with Mexico. This resolution was read by the Clerk, and laid upon the table. Messrs. Vak H#hooxho?in and Clark, in a dialogue upon the propriety ol the language used in the resolu lions as they were pasted by Uia lliuso, displayed conversational powers oi a high order. Mr. Clark attempted to show that the resolutions, as they came from tin House, were nonsense ; that the writer was a tautolo gist; be said the resolutions reminded him of " statei preaching" at a camp meeting, lie criticised the lau ' iruasre with the utmost severity Mr. Vax ScHoouHOvats eserted himself to defend thi House lie lead and re read the resolutions; he expati ated 11 ;>on untecedents, penultimates, consonants, voweli punctuations, and dinthongs. ilo was excruciatingly ca techised by some half u doxen Senators, and was dually compelled to abandon his object altogether. .Neither wore all the assaults upon tlio dignity of thi Houso conflued to the present House; the Assembly o last year suffered terribly. Mr Uxanow read an extract from a speech of Mr Johi Young in tlio Assembly of last year, as reported in tin jj,?iu, tipou the war with Mexico. Mr. Young said tin first, second, and third blows had been struck by Mexi I co; our soil had been invaded - the blood ot our cl'ixen liail been impiously spilltd, etl., etc. Mr. Barlow mad an "odorous" companion between this Mr. Young au , the whig p?ljr. ; The buinte ad journed without voting upon tlio rcso ^ lutjons.

A local hill occupied the attention of the Senate during the morning hour. ot?. 1achahy taylor?tautology. The Chairman of the Committee on Military Aflairs, (Clark) having just returned to the Senate, called for the consideration of the concurrent House resolutions of thanks to Uon. Zachaiy Taylor, and other officers of tho \mnricau army. When thoso resolutions were transmitted to the Senate, they were found to be inaccurate, and were referred to the Military Committee, with in i-tructiom to make some verbal smendments, and report 'hem to the Senate; they were amended according to the instructions and rsported to the Senate, when they were referred back again to the same committee with instructions to insert an additional resolution ot thanks to (ten. Wool. The committee added the additional resolution, and reported them a second time with the following amendment, among others:? That the thanks of the Legislature are nreseuted tn Gen. Taylor, die , (or their heroism in the recent gallant achievements over the Mexicans, "in a war forced upon us by the moat flagrant ac's of injustice toward our go vernnient ami citiaens, and in the hostile invasion ol one of the States ol this Union " To-day, these house resolutions as amended were cell ed ti|> by the Senator who amended them, (the chairmun of the Military Committee ) Mr Ci.srk said he would endeavor to explain his rea sons for mcor|ioratinK the objectionable feature (quoted above) into tho body oithe resolutions. The resolu ioni as they came from the House, were not true; they de dared that the battles of Tale Alto ami Kesaca de h I'alma were fought " upon the plains of Mexico;" ami that was untrue. If the object was to get up the petty question in relation to the boundary between Texas and Mexico, he would oppose the resolutions; he did not be. iave. however, that the House had any such object in view; he supposed that the a-sertion that the battle Pi Palo Alio was iought upon the plains of Mexico, was written through inadveitence; it was a kind ol rhetorical flourish; he wanted to stiike out the baptismal name which had been given to the location. I'alo Alto and Kesaca de la Palms were not in Mexico. He proposed to consolidate these resolutions: and his object in calliug them up now, was to oft'er a brief resolution ol thanks a* a substitute to them. Mr. Yoi't said ha thought we should avoid any dis cimsion ol the Aiesuon ol boundary ; he had not yet madi up his mind on this subject ; ho thought it would be i little vain in tills Legislature to attempt to settle a ques tiun ol lioundsry batwaen Texas and Mexico In regari to tbe language used in the resolutions, he believed wi ftliriiiM ktrikn mitth* oh uriromtiun that tho oitv #?t Mnn 1ERA 847. in favor of the bill to provide for the appointment of u. r?.<k m..utprii in tIih rniintiea of Uueena.

The bill was referred to the (Committee of tha Whole The House then passed the bill to increase the capital stock oi the Utica ami Buffalo Railroad Company, so that tho company may relay their road with a heavy , rail. Mr. Small, of New York, introduced a general act to incorporate charitable at:d honevolent societies. The bill wh* referred. An iuterminablo amount of local and private business was disposed of, And the House went in'o Committee of the Whole on the .Senate hill, bH amended hy the House Select Committee, to divide the State into judicial districts.

The Destitution In the Illghla?4a untl lalainla of Scotland, Ma. Kditoh : ? To tuo Xrw York Htrahl must ho awarded the grate- j ful romembratice of tho Scotch llighl unlets, in culling attention to (he 'amine and pestilence now stalking I ahtoad in the Higtilands and Islands, and entreating sympathy and aid trom tho Scotch bonevoleut societies, ; and citizens of this favored land. It is some what singular, that in tho universal cry of " relief to Ireland " tho forbearing and patient population of the Highlands ami Islands of Scotland, under all their trying privations and destitution, should have been entirely overlooked, ami not even alluded to in public mooting*, whoso object seemed to lie to uxtend the hand of charity ami sympathy to all thoso in our lather land, sulleriug under the dread calamity, with which it has Moused Itivilln Provident-,, to visit these 1 toils. b'rnm vlie spirit of charity now uhroa 1, and the kitdly toolings that have hecn elicited for Irelmid, our hope is that the haydy sons of tho mountains' nAwiail Will ho also mitigated, and pestilence averted, until happier days dawn on their dreary destinies. In proof of the suiter ings of the poor Highlanders, we will make a few extracts Irom the speeches delivered j nt the public meeting in Glasgow, called hy the ; Provost, to take into consideration the destitution in tho i Highlands and Islands ol Scotland : ? The llev. I) . Buchan stated?We are not to resteer!* tented in a case of common humanity with saying what others should do; we are not to say to our starving fellow countrymen?"he yo warmed and be ye led," and then fall hack on tho sellidi notion that some one else will do it When human beings are perishing, and that hy .1 calamity sont hy tho hand of Prsvideooe, we dare not pass hy on the other side. When starvation has dried | up Nature's fountain in tho mother's breast, and the la minished infu at sucks from a furnishing mother its usual nourishment in vein; when tho lather is weeping helpless and hopeless among his children crying lor food which he has not to gi\ o, we should bo less than moo did wo or could wo shut up our bowels of compa sion Irom them. This is strong language, hut not stronger than truth demands. Lot me road a sentence or two illustrative of this dreadful state of things In u communication I have had from South Uist, from a person well known to me and not a native of that country, who was thero on business of his own, and business whi h had nothing to do with the destitution 1 have receivedthis written statement, "starvation, hunger, and famine are in this place. They could not give me u morsel ol bread iu many places, if 1 would have given them tive shillings for one cake. I travelled through the mountains, stop ing ut the huts of the poor people among starving child ren crying to their lathers ami mothers lor bread. I saw the father of eight children crying lor two hours, because he could not provide bread lor his familyIn auo ther communication from Pooleive. addressed to the Secretary ol the Kree Church Destitution Committee, the following statement occurs :?"I have been instructed at a public meeting of the inhabitants to wiite to you forthwith, to request that relief be sent as soon as possible, in order to save a great number ol families who are in utter wretchedness. 1 beg to say, unless this lie done, in several instances, the consequences will be most awful. The rebel cannot come a moment loo soou iu order to save lifo " The writer, a respectable teacher, adds, alter giving.other details?"! beg you will not suppose that 1 have drawn an exaggerated picture of the destitutiin of this place.

In another communication Irom two gentlemen, one ol whom is a minister, and the other Mr. h'orsyth, of Dimacli, who have been examining into tho stale ot tlio west coast ot Argyle and Inverness slure, 'he following pa*Hugo occurs: ?" At Arisuig wo met two men who had como over liom the island ot higg in quest ol food for their starving {families; one of them showed me a gown belonging to his wile, which ho hal been oll'oriug lor sale lo get some meal for his children, hut could get no person to buy it. They assured uh there were other tamilies in the sarno deplorable condition Wo immediately hired a smack, took ten hags ot outmeet with us, sai l want (to Knigg. The people hailod rts as angels of mercy. The joy and gratitude of theso people, rapists and I'io'e-tants, proved no small reward for some sell denial in bringing ihem rebel." 1 will trouble the meeting with only one other extract. It re lutes to the Isle of ftkye, and occurs in a communication froui Mr. C. Klder ol Iscloomsay, and others, wlio have seen what they describe. After drawing u mourn ml pictuie of the state of destitutiuu in general, they 1 give the lollowing example. The case occurred in the t parish of Hnizart: ?"
