Is 1842 a cruaaJa w?? commenced againnt lot teriee, and they were abolished in KhO'te latand and in New Jersey. At pro-eut the only lo tor'at which ara patronised la New Yore ara tlm.se protaoUd by law in Maryland and Delaware. T'.ere are lotcriea ia Alabama, ?ad the arrival of an Haven ? nte-<mfr l? cMefly interest tag to a large class o> th? citizen* of New Orleans on ao tonnt of the fact that it briuga the dtawng of the lot* 4ery. Tha regular lottery butin?*i In the rf'y of New York doe* not probably amour t to otn one thousand dollar* per diem, while the policy business, or the insuring of numbers, amounts to thrte or r-jur th >umnl ilolUrH a day. Cp to a lata ,ier:o.l, a distinguished politician bad tha entire direction of the policy buiine** in thi* city ; and, although be has made a hoi t of sale of hit intereet to hia chief cleik, tho property oa which the principal policy office atai-di 1* at. 11 u*ue<l by blin, and whether directly inters t~d or not mu?t b. aware of the fMt that tho business ia ? ttll carried on there. In the poliay bualnee* tha chanc** are about ? no hundred per oeat ia favor of the ofli>- 1 'oeper; and y> t hundred* of poor people adventure their *ernini(S, and hometim** the money received in chanty, in thi* mo*t nefariou* game Of rabbery. It ia claimed by the owner* of latter cs that there is no fraa4 in the buiinesn, and that the buyer* of ticket* have nothing to contend tgi nut except the chancea of fortune, and the fifteen per cent which i* reserved on each psyment of a drawn prize. TuU aa-erlion, though often met, la itill iuj !e hi l it may be in to renting to give an example. We have ieeu a schem ?, printed in thia city, of a ?' aplendid'' ail'air, which wa* to be drawn on Saturday. In thi* scheme there ar* 7'\,073 ticket*, and 43,030 blank*. The chance of drawing the capital prize ($40,000) ia as 1 in 76,076. Th* expectatiouof drawing a price ia not equal to 2 to 1. There are 32,396 prize* ? 78 drawn ballot*. The t cket* bring $12 each, the amount reserved, including the 15 p?r cent, I* over $300,000. These facts go to show the temptation to carry on the business in opposition to the law. In order that every one may sen th* fraud, we give an example. In the Grand Coniolidated lottery of Timbu:too, drawn by th* King of Ashantee, there are g'ven? The namber of the Lottery 78 Th* aaount of the prize* $85,583 The namber of prizes 31,412 The price *f a ticket $1 50 From thi*, to obtaio the number of ticket*? 78 x 77 x 70 Uck(,,.8> 0 To obtain the number of blanki ? 76,070?34,412^ 41,004 blank*.

When the reader take* ioto consideration the fact that One of theee lotteries ii drawn every day in the week, hs may form aoaie idea of the Immense profit* which accrue to th* manager* of the lotteries.

In this manner they are often prevented from receiving any mom y, iu care they are entitled, and continue to play. Of course it la not likely that they will win twice in suerearion, and eousequently all thtir money finally goes to the pol cy ahopktepor.

About half past 1 o'cle ck yesterday morning, firs was discovered Issuing from the building 140 Fulton street, nearly opposite the Hxiuld office. An alarm wai im mediately sounded, but before iue arrival of (lie firemen the fltmei bunt forth from the third storios in great volume. The lower floor of the building wan occupied by R. I.. k J. Tilton a* a clothing warehouse. Their stock and all the moveable fixture* were raved by the insurance watch and the police, witfcout damage. The upper floor* were occupied by J. M. Falrchild 4 Co , publishers and booksellers; K. T. Young, booksaller , O. W. Hatch, Jr., lithographic pruter and engraver; IiK. Keenojr, letter press printer, and Wyncoop k Co , manufacturer* of oilcloth, it whose premises it i*, by some, supposed the fire originated, and E. F. Quidort, wine import ?r. Tho efforts of the firemen, who got to work with ad mirable celerity, for a long time proved unavailing, and the lire extended to the adjoining building, No. 138, the upper part of which wa* occupied by Price k Sons, manufacturer* of label*. The lower part of this house was unoccupied. Shortly after No. 1C8 took fire, an explosion occurred, which for a brief ipace of time created considerable con ?ternation, and caused a stampede of th? firemen and police who were within the building. It resulted from the bursting of the chimney between the two buildings, the brickwork falling upon the third floor with a tre menduous cra.-li. Hariy Howard was me of the person* in the burning building at the time of the explosion So far a* we coal'l ascertain, however, no one was injured. From the front building! the two extensions took fire. They run back some fifty feet, and were foid" four stories high They also wero all gutted, from top to bottom, leaving only a portion of its wall* standing. The firemen succeeded in keeping the fire confined to Noe. 128 and 140, both of which at tho time we write are completely gutted. When the fire was first Keen it appeared to be by the batch* ay on tie third floor ot No. 140, and 1* suppo vd to have been the woik of design. ADDITIONAL rAKTlCCI. AR*. Tlie fire of last night has resulted m >st di-a^rously. The buildiDgs, Xos Ki8 ami 140, Are levelled to the ground, and are now nothing but a mats of chtrred, dis jointed ruins. The rear of 136 Is *lso badly burned, the upper portion ot the house being destroyed; tho front, however, U dsmsged only by water. There were a num ber of small offices in the building. ar.d many persons have been made to sutt?r by this conflagration. There is considerable suspicion as to the origin of the tire, which evidently began in the third story of No. 140, some dis tance hack, and the flumes had made con.sidorabte head way before it was discovered; when it finally reached tie front windows, the Raines burst out with great vio lenco, and there was every danger that Ho. 142 would b* destroyed. This building Is occupied by Thomas Sutton, printer; Ilunt't Merchant's Magazine ; K. Pe Groot, em pire doming store; E McWuod, bookbinder; 8. (J. Steele, ergiavtr, and W. H. Heath, engraver.

During the c ntinnance of the fire, fears were egprets ed ol the safety of the new> paper offices in the itntnil ate vicinity. HaC the wind -eeo blowing fresher, there is every reason to suppose that the conflagration would have been most disastrous. Police Intelligence. THE rATINT SAFE OA MB A<> AIM ?

Wahiiikoto*, Feb. 4, 1851. BLAVMtT m run TKUKIToKIHI-OKM. t'AfM KUTlt-M TO (HUT uwrccnom, Mr. Btoaut, (ilem ) of Mich., presented a joint resolu tion (rom the l.eglflature of Michigan, Instructing their S'? nators ami Representatives to un their best etertloas to procure the pasnage ot tbe act prohibiting tbe iutro (taction or existence of slavery in any of tbe TerrltorieH, especially in Kansas and Nebraska, and to introduce without delay a bill for the latter purpose; aud alio to procure the ivnudlaie rep. al of tbe act of 1850. Mr. Cai-h, (dim) of M i- b., spoke substantially as fol lews:? Wl.en, some years ago, tho legislature of Michi gen Instructed b--r delegation to Congress to rote tor the ! Kilmot proviso, I ?ai<l 1 should rtsign wben called upon to act- Tbe i^ii-la'tire repealed tlioao Instructions. Consequently 1 did not resign. Tbe democratic party has lost th* aondeni y in Michigan, aud ttte-e resolu tions are the action ot a new party 1 am now luii r utad to Tote to deprive American citizen*, In tho Territories, of ti e power to regulate the r-latioON between miller I and servant, and for the rep. al o( tbe fugitive act, which was passed to give effect to a 'oli-inn guarantee of tbe constitution I shall n".th?r obey these instruction* 1 nor re sign my seat. If a political party whenever, a>id by whatever toinb>na'ion, it attains power, cuu compel I 1 its opponent, bottling legit lative trust* to riol tte tti ir ' consciences mid coi sntt' ocy, or resign their po-.it'on<, It ' would radically alfect tbe organiza'ion of the Senate, 1 and be in< ompntihlo with its office us tl.e represen 1 Utive tirancli of the sovereignty of the State*. Tlie ' Senate would loae every cbaineleriatic of perm ?? n?nce, an p< wir was transferred from one party to another. Tola would operate ajfalu-t the democratio party, frr their oppon ntt do not reco^nne the right to instruct. Tbe intolerant proscription, which ia advocated by the new party, would exclude from po litical confidence tbe first General who f? I at the head ol an cirgani?^ American army at (Juelx c, because born across tl.e Atlantic, and the last snrvivina; signer of the Declaration of lndependsnce, because a Catholic The adopt oo of either measure recommenced l.y ?h? Legls lattire of Michigan would be the sgnal for the breaking > up of tide government and the di-solutlon of tliia con- I feoeracy. There arn many honest men who scout all ! idea of danger, and.ere prepared totacriflce the structure ' of freedom to ho overpowering impulse. I shall remain J in tbe position I now occupv until the end of my term, : unless the democracy of Michigan shall require roe t j I aet against rry convictions of duty. What 1 lear abnre j all tilngs in that tae people may be struck with a Judi cial blindne.a with wlalcu nations are punished for na tional offeaeea. and tt.js add to the melancholy list of , people who have not * iadom enough to appreciate the the value of tree in fitutione, nor virtue and limine-..
