II ill StarUlng AbolMlon HwrontnUla New Kiif Iand?Propouil IMssolmlon of the Union* Laet month was the seventeenth annual m?etln| of'^e fai^'oup Auti-Slayery Society of Msssachiisett's, which was held in Faneml Hall, 15 or tono This is the'original society, composed oi the'original ihoyers for the agitation of tlje abolition of slavery in the Southern States, trom winch all the speakers and orators of rhe Wilmot previse afid fh?e soil school have originated, add froih.'wfootie extensive mint they its ve,drawn their opinions. i For se venteen long years this body of men has been agitating the question of abolition in New England, until at last they have leavened the two great parties in this section of the country to such an extent, as to produce such results and debates on this sdme question as we have recently seen in the present and soute previous sessions oi Cuagreaa.1 1 "> I* another part of this paper will be found the principal official proceedings, resolutions, and d?< durations of this party, as they were discussed and decided in Ftneuil Hall, and from that rene rable aanctuaty fulhnnated, lik.? a firebrand ol anarchy, over the whole Union. > -i, / -> t From these proceedings, it will be seen that thf abolition of the tenure of a slave population at Ihe South, bt all and every hazard, is declared to be the .first and ultimate purpose of these people. Invitations are held otrt to fngitive sldves in those regions, and every effort and proposition is avowed to effect the object in which they have been en gagva lor bo roaay years, tftit, over 'and beyond these declaration1 and resolutions, thpy now come out openly and declare their public hostility to the continuation of the American Union, and propose to commence a grand movement for a dissolution of the Union, as soon as maybe practicable, by alt the means in their power. The same hostility is also declared against ail the churches in the land, and every party hitherto organized in the North is . comprehended in those denunciations, ' The principles end purposes avowed by this party, assembled in opeh diy in FaneuU, Hail, Boston, did not excite so much attention at the first period of their raectingB, until the demagogues and politicians attached to the other two great parties of the country took up their notions, anil made them the basis of political movements in the Northern States. The law relating to fugitive s'aVes, which has now passed the Semite of New York, itf Albany, and which is still pending in the Asatmbly, ib simply, as it will be seen, the mere emanation of the same doctrines and ot the same purposes which the great abolitionists in Faneuil Hall have placed before the world and teach as thetrcreed, in conjunction with the open denunciation of the ("nion and of the American church. Toe ppeeohes made by W. H. Seward, during the last summer, at Cleveland and other places, have caught the same ideas from the same quarter, and are. only an a Jditional step made in the progress of thiotnoeement, winch is already openly declared to be against the continuance of the Union, and for the breaking up of ail ties between tke Northern and Southern States, as they are guarantied by the constitution. Mr. Seward, who is the exponent of tht^se principles, and one oi the pioneers ta Now York of the abolition movement which began In Faneuil Hall for the dissolution of the Uuid!}?is now elected Senafbr to Washington from the State cf Hspw York, So we go. The original ab?htmnsits oi New Kngland, ?s we hare sera by their proceedings, have taken fresh courage' from the progress cf the,free soil and Wilmotprouitio increment*, and other preliminary msues, which are only gradually uniting to bring around a general cuneiltlimaticn "n tlu liuMt* mini mmiUr is openly avowed in Faneud 11*11, (or the dissolution ul the Unien. Seeh, then, is the extraordinary position in which the country now hUnds, on the brink of a new administration, which is coming into j.owwr ia Washington, in consequence of the lecent popular election. The aholiuoniau o IS'w Aitigland are congratulating themselves hat the prospects of a dissolution of this great confederacy at'e now within their ken, and that a prohability that General Taylor may be the last President of the United States', and rtmt tberr efforts. then agitations, their debatea, theft"ttiovcmcWfi, have forced, compelled, and driven both the other great parties democrats and vhige, into the same line of motion, into the same railroad track, from which now they dare not deviate until they arrive at thd same,terminus and r< mlt, namely, a-,diowJutiou and breaking up of lie Union as it has existed for more than tf>e last hail tenia:)*. It Is true, fcomeuf the whig journals ia tins u< ighoorliood, and elsewhere, are beginning to wake up to this peerless condition of (hingtor and are calling u|x>n the Legislatare, at Albuiy, to pause in its action mreiatfon to tftp Uwnow b' fore the Assembly concerning fugitive staves.

This great aflair corties ofl to-ddy, at Hatpe^s Feri ry, as pome believe, or on an island in the Susqiie" hanns, as others say. The excitement it has created is intense; the mrire Sty, &S it is not merejy 1 a prize fight lor money, but a fight to.nettle a b\t' ter ()uarrel between the two combatants. A brief account of the origin of this quarrel may not bte ! unacceptable; connected the, intense interest - which the affair, notwithstanding its brutality, ha* created in the public inind. "ii >mi.- . > i . / Yankee1 Sullivan is an Irishman, known in this city as the keeper of a small porter-hquse iuGhati, r ham street. He has been long famous as a pugi. list, and whb the second to Lilly, in the famous , prizefight between fully qnq McCoy, j^hvp.h ter( minated in the death of tne latt er., In England be' fought with the celebrated Champion of the Ring,' i as it is called, Hammer Lane, and "obtained <he victory; since which tune his name has been ."up" as the champion prise lighter of all Christendom.*? - Hyer is a stouter nnd stronger than than his antagoI nibt, hut is said not to possess his'science.aadskiiL He is an American?a native ol New York ; and this circumstance, coupled with the 'fact of Sullivan beipg an Irishman,.fehdsi a,ot s little to foment the bitterness and increase the excitement of this affair, especially among the low and vulgar of both those different heopTe, Who each, like all other nations, can reckon, perhaps,.tenbad men far, every honest and noble man among them, Hyer weighs over 210 lbs., stands feel high in his stock| ings, and is a fine, strong, welbproportioned map,, This gives hitu a decided advantage over Sullivan,i f who is a man of ordinary size, and not so remarkable fbf Strength and stamina.'/! ' ' !,t Many expect that Sullivan's end is, therefore, close at hand* if it has not already Happened by , the time the reader peruses this narratiVp?others, otherwise. j This fight, which will draw together so many thousands from all the cities'and villager of the Union to witpess it, qfig!nat?d m the following manner. It seams that Turn liyer had got it into his head that Sullivan was not quite so great a man as his friends betieved'him to be,and felt confident that he, himself, deserved the title pf champion, more than Sullivan. A little jealousy between the two wal thus created, and in this state of feeling they accidentally m ct one day at a porter house in Broadway. Taunts and jeers between the two naturally arose, till Hyer, exasperated, and binning to try lus powers, threw of! his coat, sad, dared Sullivan, then, and there, to the battle. Sullivan instantly "peeled," and they had a tegular " set to." Hyer caught Suflivan by the bead, held lum bv the neck tirmlv under hm arm end there kept him, thrashing him at his leisure, p.ll Sullivan was obliged to cry, "hold, enough.'* Prom this time, it was open, war and hostility between the two, ami Sullivan and his friends burned with desire lot revenge, arid to vindicate the honor of their fallen champion,, la this irritated state. o( feeling, they met ugain by accident in one of the flash houses with which our city abounds, and another "set to" instantly followed?immense r.y.w was kicked up, and font flyer again gave rtulltvan , a licking, precisely in the same way as before, getting his head under his arm, and then battering the poor champion at his leisure- After this*several belligerent cards were published by the parties, a bitter warfare of words was carried on'in the public papers,-unti^ theprescnt light, for a stake of, ten thousand dollars* was arranged between them by their several friends.1 lrhless the disgraceful and blackguard exhibition is prevented by some legal process, it.will take place to-day, somewhere near ttoe Maryland boundary line, South or North. From all we can learn dn| the subject,however, there is a probability of itaresulting in a general row between the friends and backers of the reppective combat ants, and iwrhapa in a scene of gfeat bloodshed ahtj mutder. biir ground for supposing this, is a report that those who have betted large sums will purposely create a row and break the ring, as soon'as they shall See their favorite failing, and likely to lose the battle. It bitch should be the case, the most awfal consequences may ensui", for the character of the pereons who usually take jpart in auch demoralizing scenes, is not ol the best description. It t thia fight do take place, it is to be hoped that it will be the last exhibition of the kind that our country will be disgraced by. Such'acenss are demoralizing and brutal in their oonsequences, and ought to be put down by law. If every State Legislature would, follow the example u that of New York, it , would be the Inst to s certaisty ; for the act recently passed by the Assembly, and now before the Senate, makes it a crime to train tor a prize fight, to engage in ono within its limits, or to leave the Htnte with intent *\ to participate in one. Tnii Presknt I'ou< g Ststbu ?It is now near four years since the estbhlialutaent of Uie present police system, und many have expressed *n?ir opinion that the system, at its commencement. whs bad, and would never answer the purpose for J w bich ita adoption by Mayor Havrmeyer was in- * tended. Fneh, however, we ate pleased to s<e, ib ! Dow cjuite the reverse; for each year the system j becomes more efficient.

Ocean Steam NavioatuNX?AMERTCAH Steamships ?It is conceded by all wii^ competent to foim an opinion on the subject, tfigt steamship United States is in every respect a strong, attach, reliable, and swift sailing vessel. The succession oi storms which she encountered lor seventeen days, on her recent passage, was sufficient to test the finest vessel that ever floated; and the manner m which she encouhtered and weathered the tiemt ndous westerly gales, which continued for seventeen days, shows that she is deserving of the many panegyrics that have been paesed upon her. Under the circumstances, we question very much if any' vessel could have done better than she did in her last passage to this country. Her delay was not occasioned by any defect in her hull, or any acci-, dent to iter machinery, as was expected; for, from the time when she left land on the other side, until the Reached JlalifaX, her engines were at work, without ail hour's intermission, go lur from that, she was, on the day on which she arrived, capable of returning to Europ i without undergoing any repairs of consequence. The , United States has, therefore, been tested, and has shown herself to be all that cftn be desited. In pursuance of arrangement:; 'lint have recently been entered into, the Um'ed States will, fofihe future, ply regularly and carry the United States mails between this port and Southampton ,and Havre, She will form one of the two vessels of the Neptune Ocean Steamship Company?a recently, incorporated institution?the splendid steamship, Franklin being the other. The latter named vessel ts m every respect a splendid steamship. She. was originally constructed expressly tor the Ocean Steam Navigation Company, and will, it is confidently expected, be a credit to the United States, and as fine a vessel as any other. She., has been purchased by the Neptune Company, and these two vessels?the United States arid Franklfn?will cany mails, passengers ar.d fre'igfif between the i?orts above mentioned. . Hocks of subscription to the capital stock of the Neptnne Company were opened at the office of J.' Howard vV Son, No. 73 Soufh street, on the third, inst, and they will not be closed until the whole of the capital stock shall : ave been taken. From the manner in which the a Hairs of this company will be conducted, this, new company oilers great inducements to subscribers. A sufficient amount will be regularly reserved from the sum to be received from the American government for carrying the mails, to pay an interest o.f seven percent on the amount'invested by the stockholders. This will be guarantied in the first place."; and it is on this principle that the books ofi subscription have been opened. Fdr further dividends, the money received for freight and passengers, after paying expenses, will be relied upon, and this we should imagine will be amply sufficient to make them large, and to lead us to believe that the stock of this company oilers great inducements for investment. The importance oi havtntr a direct utenmnhin connection with France is evident. There is a great trade between that country and the United States, which is increasing every year, besides that, there is every inducement for both countries to cultivate the most intimate and friendly relations. That country is to the Old World what the United States is to the New. On each, in its appropriate sphere, depends the furtherdnc of the principles of republicanism and self government. They are essentially the two most important nations in the woiid, and if bound together a scjopely as they should be, and as we flatter ourselves tlit-y will be, they might 6et the rest of the world at defiance, and pursue their respective destinies without fear of molestation.
