Audi alteram partem. Affairs at the Halt Capital. Ol'E ALBANY "COHRKS POMDENCI. Albany, March 19, 1851. j He Preliminary to the Election of United Scuta Senator? Jh Important Vote toit by bring t'co Aim uLct too Lute. It has been anticipated that no election for : United Statrs Senator coul i be made by the present ! Legislature under any or prospective law, but that matter was disposed of at two o'clock this morning, by joint resolution. Some five or six days since, Senator Cook, despairing ot" electing a Senator in the usual manner, laid a notice on the table that he would, on some future ddy, move to susi^nd one of the rules which required all joint resolution s to lie over one day after being ottered, before being acted u,ion. Non .? of the \ igilant mi ! nority cculd, of cours?, know when thit motion would be Caljed up, although they were aware, that on the first day when all *h? whig Senators w re present, and one or two j democrats were absent, then it was probable that the eliort would be m ide. On Saturday every whig Senator appeared in his pla:e, numbering se venteen, all U'lJ : though upon the question of & ^.-?pension of the rules it wis well known that Mr. ; Beekman would not go with his party friends. On that day, also, the democrats were all pre.-ent. That afternoon, Senator Brandreth took a trip to Sipg Sing, iutecdirg to remain a few days. On Mucday mcrniag Senatoi Dar: F'at^d that he was unexpectedly caiud to the city of New York, and rsqui-sud that the resolution might not be called u,> untii hie return, ecJ made an arran?em*nt with Senator Croliua to " pair oil"," upon the taking* of ' political uestiors. On Tuesday mornijj, as soon as the order of bujints. for ofl'erin? reoolvtions ar ! rived, Senattr Conk, observing 'ht a'vsen.eof both Mr Hranorethaa 1 Mr Dart, sprung his resolution ?ufp> ndirg the join', rule aforea&i.i. Th ? deinocra ! tie minority being thus unexpecte !'r pomced upon I wtnle two <f iheirmembtrs w? re ahseflt, relied Uf on the oppoi rfion of Senators Baticock indO<veu, bo h of whom the elrepy silver grays have clai.ned i all the fttucu Those two votes, or either one, | and aWo ihat of Mr. Beekman, known to be cer tuin, would have defeated the springing of the " fi|nr? oi-four." A debite occurred of two or three hears, when, upon taking the question by ayes and noer, the votes of the two former gen.le rrec were given in fuvorof Mr Cook's resolution. Before the vote wis sinouneed, Senator Maun challenged the vote ot Mr. Schoonmaker, on the ground that he was a member of Congress, and therefor' not *ctit!ed to a vote in the Senile of tlie State of New York. The whig majority, of course, sustained the vote, as it was tor th it vote mainly that Mr. S. ha* !>een compelled to li lzard his seat in Cosgress The motion to rescind w as carried ; by s mijontT of two vot--s. ' About this time, the news s,reid av?out thecitv that the democrats had been caught nappiug, and that a Senator wus that day to be chosen. The lobbies, atte-roome, aud even the floor of th?* Ss nat? chumber, scon berime thrunced with specta tors It seemed as if the people rushed in torrents to ? itr? ss the scene then enacting. Mr Mann, and other d-mocratic Senators, being thuji tfk'-n unprepared, desired in tor oik*, ion whe tier thee was any necessity fjrthai kind of action; and Mr Baboock, the whig < hiel counsellor, was ? apjealed to for tin answ er Now, Mr. B , being a mode I of d'cuity, i almn*s*. and sedateness, has been looked u^on with the hix heat respect, and wasejjected to autwer the interrogatory, as he uniforr ly h?? done every oth*r, wa;h clearness and , precision H.s re,ly wa?, thit he koew of no p->? litical object in view, and th .t he relied altogether uj<in tin- ?taum*nt made by Src 'or Cook, that the crowd of business before the S Bute demanded the tctpentioa ct the rule, in order to got the two j bouses closer together. Tue rule was, of course, j suspended. Immediately opm that f?ct being ancotmee I, Mr '>*en,u, to that n.T?i< nt s'tp.osed to Uc all v? r cr .y, s( r,.ng to his leet, and ort* red a pre imbic aud lerointi' u i!otlaring thit wbi rea? the T<"ifis ; Uturefnd failed to elect u S njtor on a prsviou* occasion, th' r'fore the two housee would, at four o'clock en that d;v, proceed, in joint wetiog, to 1 ilecta?- Eiitor Tui.' ito.oc, cormnc fro.Tihim, Mt?cuih< d every or.e preg-ct. except the woolleys wl o w> re iu th?- *e;iet Th* silvi r trays bui'.led tf><.ut in artoni-hmerit, declared Babcock urrl ' ?rn tiaitof t?

By the late news from Central Americe, you have perceived that the English government, by it J intrigues, haa made further encroachments on that country, through Sir Charles Grey, the Governor of Jamaica. Hostilities had actually broke i ou* between the States of San Salvador and Guate mala, occasioned by Biitish interfereoce, and the latter State had called on Great Britain for aid. Since thee, you have seen the graphic account of he arrival of His lloyal Highness, the Mo^uito King, at San Juan de Nicaragua, or Grey Town, I nd'the sumptuous bancuet prepared for him by II. i B M's Consul at that place. As the question of the right of Nicaragua to the Mosquito territory, is becoming daily vested with , reater importance, I will give you, tor the benefit of your readers, a short account of tne kingdom tod its king. The preuentchief, King or the Mosquito Territory, as England has thought pro. er to sty le h m, is u d'npy colored lad, between seventeen ar l eighteen veers cf age, who his obtained, through the bug* lish, a EmatteriDg of education. He is a lineal de scendant cf those who were chief cains of that tribe of Indian* befcre their alliance wi h England, and of their so-called kings since. The Mosquito coun try was an independent territory, occupied by the most warlike tube of any of the aborigines of Cen tral America, before the Spanish invasion, and in the exterminating warfure of that coji'iest they, end another independent tribe, who still exis. in the country lying between the Mo^u-toes on ecet and San Salvador on the west, were the only people who rolled back the tide or^yin^hrici0^, a?d preserved their tenitcry. The t.ondi r( i, M caragua, and all the other tribes of Central A?-'1 can Indians, submi ted to tne power ol a, i:i, an the des.otUm of her vice-regal represent i\e. The Mosquitoes warred constantly and 6U-ces. fullv o nninat thu t *>owfriOfl2 ftficr it Wft9 lllU?tT6SS of hi: tie oth< r tr.bes, and had obliterated everv I trac of the aboriginal population fr"rn tl't ',1fh ', 1 excel '-, indeed, the rums of their cities and the I monuments of iheir simplicity or weakness, tor I more thin a ce ntury they exacted a^rct,' lected it from the bettleri at t.rey Tosvn, for the ' nrivflffi' of trading and cutting tiawer there, not ' oiiiv v lnle it was a pretended colony of Spain, but since it has been claimed by the present republics. Admitting, then, that the Mojitoes owupf the same position with Nicaragua and other States, as iLe Camanches do with the Lnited States, " would hard '.v le presumed that Knglind would dare' to uphold the sovereignty of the latter tribe over this ccuutrv; tnl if not, her interference with the Central American States in thb ad air, canaotbut be looked upon as a great violation of right, and simt-t dastardly interfcrenae, which this govern ment will never consent to. ? . ! The first connection cf Great Britain with the Mo-iuitoes, took place after England hid ac?vnre<i tie Island of Jamaica, during the protectorate of Cromwell, wh-?n the inhabitants Lnowa as Ma I r i. ens and occupying the mountains, broke out .n j r- bell. on. and committed the 1 ties on the other inhabitants. The Urwisn troot3 at Jan-tica not being in sufiicient force ?o pr?ven I these attacks, the natives from the Mo.^atto couu I try were hiied io come to their hence the alliance between the chiet of J ?n.l the Enelish Governor. llns alliance was renewed under successive governors, until the Xw. cl Orev Town, us ft is now called as a tiadinz tort and market to purchase the hae and co?tlv dyes and woods, developed itself, wh?nThe chief was, by British policy, made a crowned kirz, thit fo cou.ia of England irieht enter into a royal alliance, Jcc. .. on enuil terms with him. By this farce was laid th?* g- rm of British iaterf-renee in Central alldirs.

The majority oi the court confirmed the judgment, hat JeMtee Koet disarmed. on the gvowdtkM there wis no lew which provided for such a cue; that there waa no contract proven between the parties, and as the plaintifl had contracted a inmUge with another person only two months afterwards, he thought there was no damage done, and that the judgment should be reversed Another funny suit is also pending in oae of oar courts The plaintiff is the lovely little daiwuu, M'lle Baron, who sueaTom Placide, of the Varie ties, for a breach of contract, not of marriage, but ot dancing. She alleges that Thomas engaged her at a cei tain rate in the city of Paris, to dance in the bulltt coryt at his theatre here, for a certain time, according to contract passed at Paru, and signed by them both. The cause of the falling out between Placide and the fair 11 iron, is not ex

plained; but for some reason the black eyed beauty, to the regret of many admirers, left the theatre, and brought this action for a violation of the con tract. The case was set for trial a few days ago, and it being understood that the charming dmuust, Hilariot. and several young ladies of ttie ballet corps, were to De present as witnesses, the young Barris ters of our city were thrown into great agitation. Accordingly, the court room was crowded with kid gloved gentleman of the jgreen bag, and a num ber of mustachioed dxtttnguis, anxious and curious to hear what would be the nature of me testimony which the fair witnesses are to awear to. T<vo young lawyers, who were at the time trying a dull promissory note case, immediately vested it with great importance on the entree of the ladies, and evinced an extraordinary zeal and display of elo queuce in their cauae, much to the dissatisfaction and annoyance of the uu lience. But th-iir anxiety was toon put an end to, hy it being announced that the case wasconnnued; and, greatly disappointed, the audience retired, following the ladies out of court, to get one last, lingering look. M'lle Celestioe Franck, and her ballet orps, has returned to our city, and are playing at the St. Charles Old Chippendale, the manager of Pla cide's Varieties, with Mr. and Mrs Howatd, Hol land, Bafs, and Daws >n, are still drawing line houses. Our old friend, J. M. Field, the talented writer, poet, and acter, has made a great hit this fenson, with his theatrical corps, at Mobile, and gained renewed populirity himself.

Yesterday being the closing day of the session or the Medical College of tais State, and, moreover, the anniversary of the commencement of the in stitution, it was celebrated with appropriate cere monies. Dr. Mott, the Dean of the Faculty, deli vered the customary address, before a large au dience assembled in the hall of the medical school. It was.listened to with much attention, and no little interest, by all pretent. He was followed by Chief Justice Eustis, the President of the University, who highly complimented the faculty of the col- ; lege, to whese strenuous exertions, he said, the : university was indebted for its renown and pros perous condition. Thirty-seven students, who had satisfactorily passed their examinations, had de- ; gress conferred ui-on them: and the session of the college for the present term was then declared closed. On Monday night, an ?ccurrenc of somewhat a tragical nature, took place at a collie house on the corner of Circus and Com non streets. An alter cation having arisen between a Capt. Warreaton, and a man of the name of Gritiith, words so >n led to a more drsp'rate means of settlement, and Capt. W. fell to the I'oor with a severe wound in his ate domen, inflict* <1 l>y means of a stab with a bowie knife. Capt. W. was immediately carried to a neighboring hospital, where, after lnzerin? for twenty-four hours in great agony, ho expired. Griffith was arrested yesterday inoroinj, an! wis confronted with his dying victim last night. War renton recognt/' d the mm, and swore tint he was the person who had stabbed him < rriffith is to be examined to-day. lie strenuously denies the person who iullictc.l the wound. The celebrated Mcl>onougU will ca*e will be argued here, in the I . S. District Court, som- time during the ensuing week. It is attracting much attention, no less oa account of the magnitude of the interests involved, than from the celebrity of the counsel engaged < n cither side. The nltiiiiite sad final decision will, of course, be given by the I . S. Supreme Court. Oar Stw Jersey Correnpondnee. Trent *, March 19, 1S51.

Be haa been taught to believe that their Inhabi tants were, aim em above ail other*, the frieada of order and good government; intelligent enough to appreci ate the eattntagre ot free inatitutiona of their own (boioa. and capable ot understanding and resolving that great political problem, ot the compattfeUity ot irosdom with order ot lib. n y dintinguished from licen tiousness, and of aelt government tne farthest remov ed from the diinf era of anarchy; that they were espe daily devoted to the uuiou ot the States, and to the constitution which ertablmned. and atill maintain* that Union; acd tbat tr>eir patriotism would never fail to conn* el them toiulblull their obligations under the constitution, justly and fully, and in the vary spirit in which such obligations were entered into by their renowned aneeetois. Kctsrtalulng these sentiments, It was difficult for the President to credit the accounts which were raoeived ot the outrage on all la#, perpetrated in Boston, on the 16th of February last. That a prisoner, In lawful custody, within the walls of the Court Uoupe. in the centre ot the oity, and in full sight of the offices of the municipal authorities, tad been, at noonday, lorcibly retoued, by a mob or one or two hunar?d persons, irom the ofiijers ol the law, cariitd c ut ot the building and through the pub ( llo streets, in a sort of triumpn. and enabled to enjape altogether, without an attempt on the part o! any of the authoritea. or any of the oitisens, to preserve or der and maintain the law or to purine and retake the iutfitive. was a siauaent that seemed to him too lia piobaLle to be true It waa Kith a leeling of grrat relief that he received useh explanation* '1 tills strange occurrence at !howedit to hare ben u i entire surprise upon the citizens, at d upon the authorities: an act of suaces*. ; lul temerity, on the part of a very inconsiderable I cumber of perron*, which only needed to have been apprehended the shortest tim? beforehand to have I been prevented. I The President U confident that ths great majority ol the citizen* ot Us tun are entirely loyal to the I constitution, thai they view with juat indignation all such outrages, aad all attempt*, whether by writ ing or speaking to incite the ignorant and unthink ing to such acu of vioianoe, and that they are rea ly to dltcherge the duties in -.urn bent on thorn, by the conctitution and lawe ot tte United States, faithfully and fenrlesMy. under all circumstances, whenever called upon by the proper authorities. The occurrence of cbe l,">th Februarv is crtalnly I greatly to tie regretieO as it gives oocasion te those not unwilling to rnia u;-?a it to question the di<pn dtion of your Miow-ci liens to comply with their constitutional oHigatiou* in goo 1 faith; and the his tory of such an outrage is spread far and wi le, reachn* where an explanation of it m-?v nev.r follow, and ereatea ill feelings towards those whose only connec tion with it Is, that they were resident* ot the plaoe in whtoh it was perpetrated. But if, as the President doubt* not it will, this event shall arouse the atten tion ol a'lgood eliixns to a sense of the dangers to be apprehended from the inculcation ol such doctrines aa hate been spread abroad in the country, tending to ehake the authority of all law, to unsettle sooiety, and t> i:b. t've men irorn all civil and moral obliga tion!, and shall put them on th-ir guuj again*: the further diffusion of suen pernicious sea'.imeuts, it us/, in the end be productive of happy results; aud, certainly, the elmoit unanimous expr?<Mon of indig nation which it called forth among your eitUsns, ba lance*, to *omc extent, the ill effect flowing trom it.
