Tour Through Brooklyn and Jersey City by tha Governors of New York, Blew Jersey, an* Connecticut, and the Legislative Com ml t tees? Inspection of the Piers Visit to the Navy Yard? Meeting at the Aitor House? Bplry Debate, die., dcc. According to previous appointment, tb? Committees of tbe Senate and Assembly of tUli State on Co in mere* and Navigation, left Albany on Tus*d*y afternoon anil sr *lv ed l>ers lait evening. They were ascompanied by Oor. Clark, Mr. Leavenworth, Secretary of Stat" ; Mr. Cook, Comptroller ; Mr. Spaulding, State Treat ur er, and Mr. Clark, State Engineer; together with the following named member* of tbs LegUlsture : ? Meun . Brooks, Dickinson. Pratt, Hatchings, Rhodes Green, Davis, Jimmerson, Whitney and Coleman. They were .ioiced by Govern ?r I'.oJnianM Price, of New Jer sey. and t lie following earned member* of the I.egi*ls ture of that State: ? Messrs. Hoxey, lionuel, Hoimes, Xaflerton, Board and Miles. Governor Dutton, of Con necticut, joined the party at Brooklyn. Invitation* .had been issued to a large number of per son* to meet these official* at the Aator Houie, at 10 o'clock jesterday morning. The circular* were *igned by Mr E. Meritm, of Brooklyn, the gentleman who give* u* i>o much information about the weather and other scientific *ubject* At the appointed hour there was a putty good number of well known citizens at tlas Aator House The City Hall wa? decorated with flag*, (a honor or the Govtrnor'a visit, and the Mayor of the city wa* present to give him a tort of semi-official welcome. Capt. Hudson, of the United .States Nary, and Capt. lionrman, Commandant of the naval station at Brooklyn, were also preient; alto Peter Coo per. Esq., and several prominent merchant*. Tbeie wa* no foimal reception or speeches at thi* time. After an hour or *o *pent in conver*a'.ion, the party Uok carriage*, and proceeded to Brooklyn toexa -aiiue the harbor encroachment*. Governor* Clark and Price, and Captain* Brorman and Hudson, rode in the fli-t carriage; tie member* of the committee* and other* followed. Mayor Hall, of Brooklyn, accompanied the party, Mr. Meriam acting a* guide and general *u , peribtendent. The party first vi*ited the Navy Yard, where the ma rine corp* wa* turned out, and paid the Governor* the honor of a salute when they entered the yard. A salute of twenty. oue gun.i wa* also fired Irom the receiving Mhip. Captain Booiman pointed out to the committee* the pier of Mr. ftuggles. who claim* a water front of six hundred f>et in front of the Navy Yard. If Mr. Kuggle*' clarm in allowed, and he proctels to fill it up, the useful ness of the Yard would be destroyed forever, as no ves set* coul l be lai:n bed froui either ship house. Hi* pier ?exteud- beyond the line of tlie Navy Yard wall. Thejparty then visited the frigates Sabine and Niagara ?on tne stock* ? the Dry Dock and other points ol in terest, and then left the Yard, receiving another aaiute troni tbe marine corps a* they departed lbepierot Mr Kuxgi*" ana that of the gas company were tuen visited. It in ciaimtd that these nra encroach ment* entirely for private benefit, and tbat'no commer cial good ctti result from them The tide sweep* around the bead ot this pier with the rapidity of a mill race. It wa* stated by one of the naval gentlemen that wneu he "was a midshipman be found no difficulty in pulling againrt the tile in the East river, but (Aat when he re turned her* a* a comraauder, two years ago, ha found dt almost impossible for a stout boat's crew t > make any jieadwsy against it. tieveral other point* on this side, where encroach meuta have been made, were eiamined by the committee, -jne near the (jouverneur atreet terry, and another net ? Catherine terry Mr. Wstmore's iron yarj h it a pit r at tsched which ha* an extent of lio f?et The owner stated 'hat according to law he uosld carry it mil h far ther. The attention of the committee wa* directed to a point urar the Atlantic docks, and we have no doubt that they could hive vifited many other place*, but the k-flect of the bitterly cold air b'^an to be perceptible Jind the party got en iouV for the New Yors tide. The investigations were conducted fairly and impartially; the Governors anil honorable geutlemen land the weather like martyr* ond patriots, a* we have no doubt they are. Paddlin; about navy yards, gas work*, lum ber' yards and so forth, is not very amusing with the theimometer below thirty. Tbsir trial*, however, werti not over. After New York had been reached Jersey City wa* visited, and the whoi* party pri toenailed down to the end of a very long pier, just flushed by the New Jersey transportation company. Thi i i* an encroachment of more than one thousand feet from the original shore line, and th* Jerxeymen want to guage t heir shore by it. Tnete was no public demonstration (except at the Navy Yard,) in Brooklyn, or Jersey City, in honor of tha liftioguished visitor*. Business went on in precisely tbs same manner a* it goes on alway*. A few little ?boys were anxious to see the Governor, but not a cheer or sign of welcome, or recognition, wa* raised. The Aator House wa* reached again at half-past four, tittr a great deal of riding, walking, and talking, but no mating or drinking. A mere hungry set of honorabU gentlemen than yesterday's party, could not easily be found. At ft vs o'clock, howtier, thsre was a goo I din. ner. and champagne for every honorable gentleman who Uksi it. Some of the Mams law mein'x-rs, it i* said, display ml no especial enmity against Charts* Henltisck, ,HJ although be i* a foreigner, bis brand was adopted by two or three '-Hindoo*. 1 here was plenty of eat ing, but no speech-making. An impromptn meeting took place in one of the par ?tori, alter uinui-r. Senator Brooks uid he had Wo requested by sareral gentlemen dwply inUro ,ted in tbia great city, to call JUf a**t ug to orJer. He regretted that they were not uWent tc * p?ik for themselves ; but they were *o much mnurMil in busloeai that they found it impoiatble. He (Senator Brooks) f?i folly assured that the distinguish d assembly before him. including a* it did gentlemen of ligh official position* ? three Chief Magistrates of State* -member* of the Legislature of two State*, and others? .amid cot be unawart of ihe great Importance of the :om? erce of New York, not only to Its own citizen* bat lo those of other State*-. Connecticut In bound to us b r and tmt by aea, md New Jersey is Attached to u* by the itrongeet tie. To these an well as to othrr 8Ute?, New Ifork ii a great commercial depot. He t Mr Urooka) rae aware tiiat there was a dineren e of opinion, in a mKtieel point of view, an to how projecti for the ira irovemeuta ?f rivers and harbors should be carried out. tome believe tiat they ahoold be pai l for by the federal ?overoa>eat ; -ether* adhere to the doctrine, that the ae- ! ??ral State* ekould carry out their oen idea* on the | ubject; while Uit-r>- ia still nnotlicr class which holds bat the local authority ?- should do the work. Without oucbiug upon either of the?e disputed theories, lie j loped tUe.t every man there ha I m tde up Ufa mind to do rbat he could honestly, and fairly and legally, to im ?rove the navigation of the North nod East rivers, and hereby beoelK the mmerce and prosperity of the pniea. there wa? an ominous silence ef half a minute or so, | rhen somebody wbiapered to Senator Hrooka, who, im v-diataU afterwards "too'?. the liberty of moving that i oreriior ('lark be requested to act aa {'resident of this i>?tlng." ? The raotien *!? carried, and Senator WmrviiY En acted the Governor to the chair. Governor Cum ssld? Gentlemen I thank you for the onor you have done me in calling me to fill the chair a this oeeasion. I am not able to do justice to you, at will endeavor to do aa well as posit nl*. Hon. Hoeare. .limmeraon, reymoor, end Hoxey were " im en (secretaries. Ooveraar Piuok rote aad ?aid- Mr. Chairman 1 prt4, mm that t am etpected to reepnnd for what the lion, mlleman who laat had the Boor has said in reference , ? New Jersey. The people <?f New Jersey e*-l ths Im- | irtance of the commerce of New York? they feel that te commerce which is coc<-eatrated here is ot th- hlfli' | it importance to all tbe State*. rbey !?el the import ice of an unobetructed outlet for this commerce at ?miy Monk. New Jersey ha- a water line of great ?ln?, ttie b?n?flts of wlneh have been enjoyed by Vew ork. But the people of New Jersey are happy t-> have retributed to the prosperity of this great c ty. Of , ie commerce which ia hereater to om< here, ew Jeraey muat have a large portion. And e wiah to avoid the errors which the peopl* of N'ew ork have fallen into by en-roa-bing upon the water i?. We will give yon water docas like the Atlantic j ybs? a credit to th? country We wish to as* our iturol s 1v?ntam-? in the best manner, and we are ready promote and second any legialaUon which may be la sted in New YarU for thv purpose of delending eatsr ivilegea on the rivers, and for the improving of the it let at the bar at Saa-iy Hook. ifoveraor Pciee far ler said that he had read the hill now before the liga ture of Vow York, aad that ha approved of II, He ought b- Id say, for the people ai New Jereey. I at tbey wore in favoi ef some |egi?ia'i..n 'o prevent irther eac reachienta on the river, and to Improve the 1 let oi the harbor. Although they w?re se-oniary to >* York, both ia the power aad taa i-nerit to b* re ived yet tbey would concur readily aad caeerfnlly ia ery project lor aueh Improvement Governor Pttto* of Connecticut?

Connecticut ia dlatiu gulsbed for it* manufactured article*, which are brought to New York, acd from thence conveyed to all part* of ; tie globe. Therefore, the people of Connecticut have | the liveliett intereat in the improvement of your I harbor. We should not be satisfied with to-day ? I we xheuld look forward and nee what the next century will bring lorib. The river* may be large enough for the commerce now, but before many year* New lark will be ten time* a* Urge, and have tan time* the amount of commerce that fbe ha* now. Governor Dutton, in concluding, hoped that some measure* wauld be taken to improve the harbor of thi* city, tba vaat de pot of the commerce of the Western World. Hon. E. W. Ijuvkvwortii, Secretary of State, said that tli*- subject wa* one that needed careful considera tion. Three thing* however, ought to be done. He wa* in favor Of passing the bill iutroduced last winter tiling the limit * of New York harbor. It ahould be Htak?M! out, a* it were, at once, by commissioner* ap pointed forthe purpose, and the bound* thus 6xed should lie for all time. The present encroachment*, with one or two exception, were not daugerou*. If what Mr. Welmore said wta true, the law ought to be repealed by which he had a right to extend hi* pier*, and an act paM<rd foi bidding any further encroachment*. Hon Mr lloxiY, of the New Jersey legislature, said he we* waimly In favor of staking out New York htr b< r as proposed by the honorable gentleman who had picceded him The people of New Jersey were all in favor of It. They had mnde no encroachment* on the North river, and they would not. He desuad to direct the attention of t!?e meeling to the fact that the build irg of a pier on the uorthwest aide of Htaten Island hat the etlect of diverting the channel toward the New York aide, and that it would seriou?ly injur* the commerce on the Passaic and Hsckenaack rivera. Thi* commerce amounted to a gleat sum ? 15.000 vessel* paaaei up tbo?e rivei* last year. He was sorry that New York and litooMyn were at inane on the <|ue*tion of encroach ment*. but be warned them not to do anything which might deprive the people of the Union of the advantage < of the naval *tatlon. If there wan do other power to do It he hoped that the federal government would inter fere to protect that arm of the sea for the uae of the oavy. Senator Dickinson made a few remark* touching upon the importance of the question. Ur. Kiiouu being called out, paid that It wa* unfair ti expect bim to *ay anything on thi* subject, a* he was a mt-mbei ol the committee, and the matter would all come up before it. He would *ay that tnough New York an 1 Brooklyn might b? getting near together, and although they might jet become one, it was *ingularthat nothing had yet be'm said about encroachment* on the Now \ ork aide. He would ask why the pcr?ou* who bu1 ac companied the committee had not shown them anything on the N?w York stde. They had been very part l;ular to point out certain places in Brooklyn, but none on the other aide. Mr. Hrookh acknowledged that there were many en croachment* on the New York aide, but did that excuse Brooklyn* Mr RHonm.? The gentleman has not answered my question. 1 am willing to settle thi* matter fairly, anl in the Rvgglea case to agree upon a compromise. A man's property should not be v>ted away without giving him any return. Mr. Blunt, of Brooklyn, desired to make a few re marks Mr. Rhode* objected. The committee did not come here to hear the question argued. 1 b" members had a private understanding before they left Albany, that they were to come here and perioaally examine the matter, but not to hear arguments. On motion, Mr Bi.rsT was allowed to proceed. II* Mid that the old p'er line amounted to nothing at all. It was ruibed through at Albany and the line wa* drawn on the map aa a schoolboy would draw it, without any regard to the current In *lmo*t all the worat encroach ments. ft hose ot Mr. Rnggle* anil the git* company par ticularly.) tlie extensions had been made tor private benefit, not for the benefit of commerce. Now it whs propoM d to build a street around llrooklyn. ft intiog the wharves, n measurt which would ruin hundred* uf ware houses for commercial purpose*. Mr. Backus, of Brooklyn, rose to apeal:. Mr Rhodi.m positively objected feimtrr Dickinson, (warmly)? I should like to ssk wits! we came here for, utile** it wa* for information. I think the gentleman ought to be heard. I think that we should get nil the information we can upon the sub ject from tbo?? gentlonen who live uear the apot, and who ate 'amiiisr with the facta. I came here to hear, not to be heard. . f-enitor Hrookh had never beard of any understand ing among the committee a* to what they should bear. Mr. KhoiiB* ? It was so among the Aaaenibtv Commit tee. We did not know that the senate Com.nitt"e would be here, as tUey went over the i mim ground Uat vear. If they had supposed they were going to meet snnh dl* tingulshed company they prrbsbly would not have come. If the matter whs to he argued. desired that pro|>er perrons should be present to spem for Brooklyn and l.e wou'd auvgeat that the meetine ? v Mourned until the next day. He objected to henrinir partisan* *|.eak on the snhject, when there wai no one t., h*j ? word on the other sice. Mr Mkrmm made a remark in reference to ih? notice* i issued i Mr Riioiiic ? I ilid not receive uiv .ntiution from I J011 Hon. Mr. floiMAM, of New J eraey. .aid a few wnr U ' upon the .reneral meril* of the quention. Uov. Ditto* paid that it waa improper for the commit- . tee to hear any argument upon tin- question iu fir m I Brooklyn ;>ud New York iot?'reat? were con ru?d There | ?>" a bill, he understood, referred to thm committee Certain interest* wire involved, and the matter nliould not be beard unlea* hoth oartiea were fakk| rt-pie*enfed. It would be proper, however, to dlicuiK tixi qucitlon on it* general merit*. Senator W hitmcy aaid that the subject wn* one of *och vaat importance, not only to the State, hat to the whole country, that the fulleat ezpreaiion of opinion should be allow ed . Mr. bail lea*# to proceed He aaid that Brook lyn waa willing to accept any fair adju*tni?nl of the dif ficulty. The State had once marked out tinea, and now It waa propoaed to make new one*. What guarantee had the people of Rrooklyn that the new line.-, would h* any more permanent. Thia waa the grand objection to the repeal If there waa iom? guarnn* y that the line would be a permanent one, Brooklyn would be founl foremost in advocating it* adoption. Mr. Brooks moved the following ? ReaolTed, That the joint committee! of the New York and New Jfr?ey I>gi?latur<? be requested to consider what mean* ahall be adopted to prraerve the harbor of New York from further encroachment* The resolution waa adopted. And then (nine o'clock) the meeting di?*9lved. Marine C ourt. . Before Hod. Judge McCarthy . HIT FOB PASHIffltitLE BOAHD. Ja*. Ill ?William //. WiUnn ttgaim ' Hi/Ham A. S'eley. ? Thia action waa brought by the plaintiff, who ia the aaaignee ef Andrew Powell, to recover fiftf the value of aeven week'* board, and estraa, furaiabed the defendant and hie adopted daughter, Miea Matilda Cla rendor . formerly an ictreaa at the Park theatre, at the honae of Mr. Powell, at No. 186 Went Tbirt 'th at reef, commencing on the 9th of November laat A number of witneaaea were eiamined on the part of the plaintiff, wl*> alleged the occupation by defendant of three room* on the aer.oud floor, and two parlor* < n the flrat door, of the bouae In qneation. There waa no diapute aa to the occupancy of the room* on the *econd floor, but the ?*? cluaive uae of the lower parlora waa denied by tbe de iemlant.

By reason of the bigh po-itlon held by the defendant, and the rarneat and realous man ner with which tbe mum wu defended, i have (ivn the i varies* queetione involved more tbao an ordinary et animation. and after *ur:b exaounat on. have arrived 1 at tbe following COMllllW; 1.

It (the alley*.! ac ceptance) being contrary to the atatute ef frauds. The only remaining queetion for me to pae* upon ia the vala* of the hoard, which ia teetiiled to by several respectable and competent witnes?ea, on tbe tart of plaintiff, to he from ??.?> to $t<0 per week , and the farther teaiimony that tucb accommodation* and each an entertainment could not he obtained at a flr*t ctaaa hotel at l?ea than $IM) per week, (no dlre*t teatimony bavtnl h*en given by the defendant); but aa there i* some ijneetlon a* to whether tbe defendant had the eaelueive uae or occu pation of tbe lower ??</? of rooms all the time he was there, I will allow the plaintiff to recover at and after the rale of ?*) per week.

Its Relations to foreigner* ? ml foreign Nations " The following ia a brief sketch of the lecturer's remarks:? Tbe subject which we are going to dlacus* this even Inf, be Mid, should be approached with the mo*t <11* passionate calmness. The announcement of uiy theme ? auliieieut to claim the earnest attention of every Ainc ricao citizen. It ia said that tlie day it approaching when all distinct nationalities will be swallowed up, and we are also told that the brotherhood of man ahuuld put an eud to these division* of blood, of liueage an I ; ot territory If thin t>e true, it i* idle for u* to apoak of foreigners and fnroign inititutioaa. The luiprua mod an some iniuds may be that national. ty i? mr- , ow minded, but it must be remembered that ua ionH are of heavenly origin juat aa much as I'amitlea It j * not geographical position that makes duferent people Kill up the first ?li cbannrl, aud will ttiat make an Kng lahtnmi a Frenchman)* t?od clearly intended that nations rhsuld be k?pt iliatim I, so that the good ijualitie* of each might be brought out and gradually pertected No ! people were evar truly great without cheriahing the I Hpirit of nationality and cultivating to tbe highest c\ leut the national genius. If our republic haa done .any thing worthy of credit it i? because she has given lull i- cope to her natito spirit; and if we are to have a glo rious future, It must lie by permit*. ng nationality to have the fr?c?t and the widest scope. It ia abaurd to bring nlirii nius>u< into the aatno territory and call tbem a nation. There ,nuat be Internal atllnity ? a living unity among them, oth< rwiae you bave a mob, an l not a nation. Wbat there ia of nobility m our national character anl institution*, haa no*, been brought to u* from without. You cannot lin|Mirt patriotic virtue* ax you woiilluu port a hale of goaids.
