Forcible Transportation or IUUw KMlfrwU. OfMoi or in N. T. CnvtaMB, > New York, Jan. 23, 1854. J TO TBI IDUM OF THK NIT TOU IIULD. Ia ynatorday's Hhuld, speaking of foreign con ?icta oa their way to tbil port on board the Sardinian frigate Dea-Geneys, yon stated that " Mr. O. F. Secehi da Caaali aaaerted that these wen are not political ex.1 Imp but criminal! of the worst description. " Thla, air, has oarer been aaaerted by me, either by word* or by writing*. In lait week 'a Orumder I said, on the au thority of several papers published in Sardinia, some ??en semi-official journal*, among which the Portamento, that there ia but one who can be called a political exile ; ?11 the reet are removed from the Sardinian States in Order to purify the political emigration. I protested, in my article, in the nam? of the Unite! States of America, because the Sardinian government, for the laat three year*, baa, by various forcible trans portation* of political exile* and of convicts, made this civiliced country their Siberia or ptnitentiary colony. I protested in the name of those who are truly political exilea, because they are carried by force to this country amongst murderers and thieves, against their will, with out means of exiatence, not knowing the language, hav ing no trade, nor any relation* to receive iliem. The few dollar* which are handed to them by the dardini?a Consul in New Ywrk will not suffice them to pay for two week*' board; moreover, coming on board a man-of-war, they are not entitled to an.t assistance from the Com niUaioner* Emigration, since Ihey do not come under tthe.olaMl4ftV9R.9l VftWgWBW. f Jpr^M fTVft II* tf those who might be convicts, because they are xorcibly condemned to a transportation without knowing for what offence they are snatched away from th? bosom of their friends, and without having been legally tried by a competent tribunal. Finally, being supported in this mission by all the re spectable Italians here, I protested in the name of my countrymen in New York, because tunse amalgamated transportation* of political exiles and criminals discredit the Italian name in the sight of the American people, J'revious to these expedition* here, Die Italians in New York formed the choicest, most orderly, and even nr?*t respectable of foreign emigration in this city. I may state that, previous to 1840, not a single Italian citizen, political exile or not, ever had, in New York, his name recorded in the annals of crime, or for mere police of fences; and if the Italian name cannot boast of the same honor and respect a* of old, it must lie attributed to the Italian government*, which, in order to di>grace abroad the unimpeachable namo and honest patriotism of men who have sacrificed their friends, fortunes and social Ciaitiona to the liberty ot Italy, send amongst them out wa, the dregs of tociety, highway robbsrs liberated from the galleys and penitentiaries, ou condition that 'hey come to the b ew World and represent themselves olitical culprit*. Jt. sir, was the case with some of the individuals tftmShlr transported to New York in 180:1 on boird the - vV ' aloop of war Don Giovanni; and, no doubt, 'the Dea Oee*> 8 wU* briD8 ua a second edition, if not a tha ??.

It ia time that the land of popular aov6? reignty ahould not be treated as the nest of robbers and murderers. It ia time that the American people should know who come among thein to look for hospitality and protection, and of what element* and character* foreign emigration is composed. As a reliance on my aasertions concerning the indi vidual* conveyed to New York by the Des-Ueneys, I1 place at your disposal the various papers of Sardinia which tpoke on the subject, viz. : the l'arlamento\ the Cortiert Mercantile, Dirittn, and Italia e Popnlo.

What is the cause of this banishment? We are J ?ware that as aoon at the arrested in livlduala , t? ached Genoa, mediations were male in fav<?r of ' several of them, and the authorities answered that " they were not transported for political matters." On the other hand, the Italia, and with it tiome other paper from Tana, aeserts that honest men, whose arrest m suggested merely from political motives, were mingled with thoic banished a* being re|.roachable for vigrancy and bad conduct ? the removal of the latter being con sidered an beneficial by th-> emigration itself. What does all this prove? That we were perfectly , right when we reproached the government with the si lent manner in 'which similar steps are taken, a* a want j ?f duty, and quite an imprudent and unpolitical de- j meaner. In the flrst place, the government deviates from the track lately pointed out, which is that of submitting { the emigrant)) to the tribunal* ? whHh is the more just, j as it is appro* ed of by public opinion. By means of Jndiciary action the m<>?t complete *ud solemn publicity justifies of itself the necessary measures; and not only n decided condemnation, but such a legal result from which should arise moral proofs of dishonesty, or of a depraved life, would suffice to rvnder an oxpuision ap plauded by the entire body of nonest emigration, in the second place, why does not the government it least : publish tho list of nam** and the motives of thi e expul sion.'

At tha ap- 1 pointed hour sixty three emigrants were led, in the midst of tho soldiery, to tho bridge called Spanola, whence they were shipped, and conveyed to the lies Geneys, which was Ijing at the old pier. (Jth?r emi grants were on board since the previous day. and ethsrs went Inter. It is lingular that a rumor had spr?al in the city stating that the departure had been deferred, which rumor was credited by persons of high standing, (from the Diritto, a democralij paper.] Ti KM, Dec. 16, 1IM.

Oue of them, for instance, had been imprisoned because, about a year ago. he had asked for a gratuitous passport for Nortn America. We are likewise informed by distinguished persons, who knew it from the police iUeit, that some among the ar rested did not sulTer that punishment for ruasoiis which can the least dishonor them. What other reasons, I therefore, can have compelled the government to such eitreme measure* We shall ever be the first to request that emigration be freed from those who dishonor the name and the cause, however, neither arbitrarily nor yet mysteriously. 1 migrants should st least have some guarantee, if not in the name ol the law, at least in the name of humani* ty.

Mr. Tracy then, at the request of ex-Judge Edmonds, counsel for the Union Bunk, read the assignment of the bank to Smith Barker, Charles 8. Tappan, and James Connor. John T. Stewart, one of the dnty sheriffs, deposed that he hsd executions against the Kuipire City B*nk, which he produces to the court; had two others against the bank, which he has returned with the mark ' foods." Mr. Mason, counsel for George H. Purser, said that the assignment was illegal, as it was made while the pro cteding* against the bank were pending in this court. Mr. Tracy said the Injunction alluded to by Mr Mason was relinquished before the assignment was made. Mr. Henry Hilton appeared as counsel ou behalf of the American Exchtnge. and some twenty other banks, to which the Empire City Bank was indebted on ex changes to the amount ol orer 913,000, which took place od Lecemher V. 1464, at the clearing house in this olty.

Counsel for the respective creilitors were heard as to the priority of their claims. The uffldavit of Mr. I'urser was read, In which he stated that on or nbout the nth of Jauuary, Adams in formed him that he intended to apply for an injunction sgalnst the bank; deponent called on Mr. Mason, and they consented together that if the assi^titn -nt was not insisted upon, they would consent to dissolve the injunc tion and appoint a receiver. On cross-examination, Mr Purser said he never ex pressed any willingness to an assignment being mtde that be could recollect; he did not suggest that a receiver could be amicably appointed; did not know they had made an assignment; did not say I wonld consent if 1 was appointed receiver; 1 proposed that they should expose toe ? ? who bad robbed the bank of $1(M,000, nod they would not do it; they failed on December 9; I did not commence the proceedings because I did not be- { lieve they could make a valid assignment. Abraham M. Beninger, President cf the Empire City !

I Tl.e question for me to decide is, whether theae contracts of purchase presented in tbls cane are "such a memo random In writing of a contract" as required by the statute of frauds to make the defendant liable.

An a?ent, under the eighth section, can only bind his principal by signing the instrument ? the contract required to b" subscribed , by his principal, and such contract must bo the coutract of the principal.
