The latter body, however, might as well have taken a holiday, for oertaiuly their labors did not amount to much. They touched upon the postage reform bill, but aothitg more. We must state that Congreaeare pnr proceeding *a raj idly with business as the pub bc dt sired, aud if they do not do better next week we will feel incline J to speak to them io language which perh.?p* thty will not like. If members ima gme that 'hey can elect our next Presi let t i.t thi^ lime, they are very much mistake i Ii i.s l'i ge tfcer too soon to commence any caucusing or wire pulling for that object. We fear there is so much of tltis w< rl< goin^ on in Washington, that the public bo .itif?a is neglected. We would be happy to think differently, but what we see will not allow ue to do so. The Senate oF Maaatchuaetts have, it appears, selected Geo. P Boutwell for (Governor of that Sute, and H. W. Cuahman as Lieutenant Govern ?r. This is, no douht, in accordance with the terms o4 i he coalition between the democrats and the free soilers. The Secretary of the Senate and the Clerc ml the House of Representatives at Washington have, we are informed, invited proposals for the pabuc oriaui g during the next Congress We sup. pose Tom, Dick and Hurry will, ad usual, send in iht ,r estimates, and that the country will be cheated and humbugged as much in the matter as they al lia\e be i u, and that the printing will he as lootely and as negligently executed as it always ha* Uea Would it not be much better for the grvrDint nt to establish a printing and publishing ?Jci?r>Ui< nt of ita own, so that It would be indepen dent of ou'siders, as, we have irequently urged 1 We are perfectly certain that eooner or later it will bave to resort to this plan That they will be foited into it The Anti-B' ttcnians of the Legislature of Mia soaii bave, we learn by telegraph, nominated James II. ? ?reent as a Candidate for L'nred Statea S? tator.

That day, I however, id somewhat dial at. Tiik Washinqton Union and tiik Cass or Henry LONO.-The Washington Union, edited by Father Ritchie, appears to be in ecstacies because the provisions of the Fugitive Slave bill were carried out in the case of Henry Long. It says the court in New York has set a salutary example, which, it is to be hoped, will be followed on future occasions. It likewise say-Klhat Judge Judson> before whom the case w as tried, is a clear headed, competent, and independent officer, who has borne himself with equal discretion, liberality, and J tirmness. Now, we appreciate the venerable Mr. Ritchie's I compliments, i u we can assure him that we in ! New York, do not view the matter in the light in | which he does. Judge Judson will no doubt bo : much amused at Father Ritchie's attempt to soft I soap him. Our venerable cotemporary is admit tedly as ardent as a Southern sun can make him? but he must not sup, ote for a moment, that there is danger of any law, no matter what it might be, not heing carried out by New York, so long as it is law. The Fugitive Slave bill is the law of the lanl, and i' will be carried out, as far as the Stale of New York is concerned, come weal or come wo. Neither our citizens nor Judge Judson need to be informed of what his duty uuder that law is. It will be carried out, be the consequences what th?y may; and we are strongly of the opinion th*t, if the ultras of the South only knew as much of public opinion in tl e North as the Northern people themselves do, in reference to this question, they would not be quite so rampant they are. The Union excl >i s, is the Fugitive Slave law a dead letter and a humb g at the North now ! Fa ther R?u h e cert inl, cannot be as well informed of the state of the public m nd at the North as he ought to be, or he would not use such language. We can tell him that the citizens of New York will uphold any law passed by the national legis lature, as long as it is a law and in accordance with the consutut ? n. Even did they think it un constitutional, they wo Id stand by t unti its un constitutionality were decided by the Supreme Court. The great mistake with people out of New J York State has been that they > ave taken Gerrit Smith and Horace Greeley as public opinion. No ' greater enor could be commi' ed. Gerrit Smith, Horace Greeley and William H. Seward belong to factions that the mas es of Ne v York utterly and completely condemn and despise. By accident, W. II. Seward go' set in the Senate of the United States; but if his election depended npon the voice j of the masses, he wt uld have remained until this time, in the obscurity from which he never should have emerged. New York does not want any credit for per forming her duties as a member of the confederacy. She may for a time be led astray, but anly for * time. She knows her duty under the laws and under the constitution, and w?.ll perform it at any I risk. Judge Judson, too, knows hia duty, and we venture to say will perform it, no caring a straw who approves of or who condemns his action. Thk CaoTOH Acicidi'ct.? In another part of the Htraid will be found an admirable document, j emanating from one of the departments of the | city government. It is the report of the Croton Aqueduct Board to the Common Council, for the year 1830. The Croton Aqueduct is, perhaps, the greatest work of the kind in modern or ancient times. It is the pride and boast of the United 1 States, but especially of the city of New York, whose inhabitants voluntarily taxed themselvea for its construction and maintenance. All, there- i fore, that relues to it is interesting to them. Th: document to which we refer must prove particu- j larly so. It is the best, perhaps, that ever issued frftm the department, and it presents a striking contrast, in point of merit, with the report for the ; year 184&. We have abridged it considerably, and, for the further convenience of our readers, we have added headings to the difl'erent subjects which it embraces. We entirely concur in the observations relating to the wast ? of water; but we think that some stringent measures ought to have been long since adopted to put a stop to the evil. The Commissioners, however, to take the matter in hand immediately, and to furnish each house In the cit/ with a copy of regulations, the violatu n of which will be attended with penal comequences So strongly do the Board feel on the subject that they think wanton waste of one of the greatest blessings of life ought to be made a misdemeanor, and w? are ratlr r inclined to agree with them. We refer the reader to the report itself, which will aiiply rejay peruaal How TBI NlW Colt POR TON B1COIN TltKIR YkaR r>r Orric* ?The \ery first act of the new Corpora turn was cne of the grossest extravagance, to say the least of it. On Monday, the B >ard of Aldermen ordered l.UiO copies of the Mayor's message, and the Eoard of Assistant Aliermen 5<i0 copies, to be [Tinted m pamphlet form, under the pretence that this vast number w?s wanted for the Common C< until, although the document appeared next mornmg in nearly ail the daily papers, in the Herald gratuitously, and in most of the others paid for ac- | oot'iir.g to contract.
