' Yesterday the Prohibitory L'.quor law was re" parted to the Senate from the Committee of the Whole. The opposition to the bill, except in oae or two instances, has been very feeble. Several at tempts were made to alter the time fixed forth* kwgolig into effect, but the majority promptly voted them down. There is, therefore, no question *>ot that the bill will pass, and be put into full ope saticn on the firs: day of May.

Tbe bill awarding damages to the Rochester mill ' owners, for the diversion of the w*ter? of the Genesee river for canal purposes, was reported to the Senate jeeterday by the setoct committee. These claims involve an amount nearly ?qual to a quarter of a million of dollars. The Canal Ap praisers are to pasa upon them and report to tbe next Legislature ; and it is quite probable that before the claimants arc satisfied the schedule of dasoages will foot up a round aailllon. For a period of twenty 41ve jears these claims have laid dormant; but ail at once the millers on the Genesee are cocvinitd t' at tbe State has robbed them of valuable water privileges, and they have almost succeeded in convincing the Legislature of the truth of their repi esentations. By the proceedings of the Board of Aldermen bat evening, we perceive that tbe expense of re moving the ruiBs of tbe building in the Park amounted to $ 0,007. The number oi men employed on tbe work during the distressed condition of the poor was three thousand one'hundred and twenty eight. Hon. S. S. Phelps, formerly United States Sanat >r from Vermont, died at his residence at Middlebury, on Sunday last. The Supreme Court of Massachosetts has dis charged from custody the two deserters from the British army who were convicted ot larcony in rob blcg tbe military chest at Sydney, 0. B., some months since. The crime being one of simple theft, and not robbery, the case was decided by the Uni ted States Commissioner at Bosun as not coming within the terms of the Ashburtm treaty, and the Supreme Court has confirmed the decision. Tlx Canals -and the Railroad** The closer the question is viewed, the clearer it is that nothing t-bort of Bomc energetic finan cial move will rescue this State from bankrupt cy. The word is not familiar to the ears of New Yorkers. VVc in this State have been used to regard our credit as something whioh could not be shaken, our means as a source which could not be exhausted. For years aid years the prosperity, the afflufnee and the high financial standing of New York have been notorious. The time has bow come, it seems, when the former are confessedly at an end, and it rests with the Legislature to eay whether the latter shall be impaired or no*. Without some new shift, to supply half a million this year, a mil lion next, probably a million and a half in 1857, and a proportionately larger sum each year for an indefinite peiiod, this State will be insolvent in December. It will not do to treat the matter lightly. It is not only a debt of a shilling a head on every man, woman and child in the State, to be paid off before the year is out in Bome way or other ; to be increased to a quarter a head next year, and steadily to go on increasing, until doubtless it reaches half a dollar a head or more : it is not this view of the case alone which ought to engage our attention. Far more important than consideiations of mere passing pecuniary exactions is the remembrance that in the strait in which New York is at pre sent placed, our financial standing, our credit, cur honor are involved. The first question which starts to the mind at the very inception of au inquiry iuto the subject, is: how came this deficiency in the canal revenues? Fortunately, we are at no lose to point out its origin, rise and progress to the present time. It began when the canal* first began to pay, and when the politicians, first of one then of the other party, saw in the lucrative traflic which then covcred them a means of growing rich themselves. Hiub the canals became a political bone of contention, each party being anxious to secure the spoils, in the shape of canal management and contracts. For years atjd years each party fattened upon them, and the expenses cf government were paid besides. In 1846, they were re-arranged, atid a disposi tion of the revenues made, on the supposition that the revenue was to increase each year in the future as mu;h as it had increased in the past. But the spiri', of corruption had been too fully aroused at Albany to render it possi ble that any troflfl;. however lucrative, would have been profitable to the State. Had the business of the canals increased tenfold, the revenue would still have diminished. So far as politicians were concerned, the canals hod ceased to be a source of revenue to the State, and were nothing more thai their own milk cow. Whigs and democrats grew more greedy year by year. After a time the revenue, diminished as it was by their abominable thefts and mismanagement, was not enough to glut them. They called for mo.e money, millions in lump; and got them. The people voted ten millions under pretcn:e of enlarging the canals and the politician* fat tened more gloriously than ever. This sort of thing could lead to but one end. It oould only lead to a deficiency in the revenue, and it has lid to it already. The canal men tell us, with brazen face, that the canuls have been ruined by the competitioa of the Canada canals and lakes on the one side, the Pennsylvania canals on the other, and the railroads on both sides of them. They impu dently assort that bad itnotbeen for these com peting channels, with all their greed and all their corruption, they Oould not have emptied the canal chest. What unspeak ible trash is I this! Why. if every caaal in competition wjth j thi' Erie had been don bled, and every compet 1 ing railroad bad had three tracks where it has now one, there would still have been too few outlets for the Western prodnce. The more canals and railroads have lie en made, the tnore wheat has been grown, and provisions railed; and it will be till the whole country is uad.r cultivation. Each railroad with capacity to carry five ton* has led to, we may say. necessi tated the production of ten ; and the canals to more in proportion. Yqp could not build a canal or a railroad big onovgh to do a business in Western freights that would destroy its rivals; for the more it could carry the more freight would offer. It is vital in this matter to let no man de ceive as. The deficiency is the work of the politicians, and of no one else. Whoever at tempts to persuade the public that it has arisen from other sources than the gross mismanage ment of the politicians who administered tbo I canals, and the gluttonous corruption of every petiy Mice neeker contractor, cornmis- , them, may be safely set down as a nun whQ < wilfully and corruptly seeks to mislead. The question now in, how is the deficicncy to be met? Governor Clark saya : tax the rail way*. Startling objection to this must occur to e^ry one: objections founded on the funda mental principles of political economy. At the same time it must not be forgotten that r<til ! ways enjoy rights in the nature of a monopoly for which they pay nothing. In a measure they legislate arbitrarily for the people in de termining the cost of travelling : a privilege freely conceded to them for their own benefit, and for which hitherto they have made no re turn. Nor can it be denied that in respect of articles not bulky, their competition with the canals must have been of a most serious charac ter, These circumstances, place them in a dif ferent light from other interests. In most fo reign countries, all monopolies pay special taxes to the State, by way of compensation for their special privileges. It has been currently reported here that the original recipients of these privileges from our Legislature have not made a bad use of them, and it has been common to talk of their profit by millions. It is understood, moreover that these very men have been likewise prominent in the caaal management, and it is wqjl known that it waB as much as anything in oonsequenoe of the aid given by the railroad interest that the ten million act was pasted to fatten canal corruption. Such being the case, the railroads will have less claim on public sy mpathy than many sup pose, if the Legislature should act upon Governor Clark's suggestion, and lay a toll upon them to make up the deficiency in the canal revenues. As between them and the peo* pie, and really there are bat these two to choose from, the Utter are assuredly the least guilty of the squandering of the canal revenues; why should they be called upon to pay, before the capacity of the former to m&ke up the de ficiency has been tested 7 More of IJve Oak George and the ?V?n*l PollUclmi?','-"He 'Won't be Bled. We are puzzled, perplexed, bewildered yea, absolutely amazed at the tremendous sensation excited, far and near, by the bold and practical American platform of George Law, as laid down in his letter to the Pennsylvania Legisla ture. At tlret we thought it would be a nine days' wonder, a good joke upon the old politi cal parties, and that that would probably be the end of it. But it is no joke. It is taking a deep and fast hold upon the public mind, and, in the graphic language of John Van Buren, " it runs like the cholera.'' It is the theme of the newspapers in every quarter of the Union. We find it conspicuously noticed in two or three of our leading Texas exchanges, and they are perfectly crazy over it down there. Sam Houston is eclipsed in his own State by Live Oak George; and as for New Orleans, no other candidate is heard of in that latitude than our great contractor, steam ers, artillery and old muskets inclusive, with an awful winking and blinking at the I?lind of Cuba. . But the most amusing effects of this live oak manifesto of Mr. Law are among the old fogy party journals of the country. The other day the Washington Sentinel, (whose ticket for the succession is Hunter, of Virginia, and Bright, of Indiana,) opened upon Live Oak George after this fashion: ? Wt hare a party at tbli. time in thla country? tlii* tree country ? In which men have not been wont to meet in Mcret and *ptak in whi*per*, that hi* it* peculiar eere moaier. Its ritual i* an incomprehensible jargoa, itl ceremonies are (if report* may bs ere li ted) far more ab Kurd than tlie eitiemeat ceremonies of the Catholic Church, which tliey so much ridicule, their deity ii ftcorge, their Prophet the >r.w York Herald, and their object the heaven of government plunler. To which the Albany Atlas, the special I fugleman of Marcy, responds in the following ^Tb* Sentinel will leirn, one of these day*, that this j man I*w 1* taken hold of for bia pur?e. lie pay* th? expenie* of venal politician*, who in return feed hla gross vanity. They pufl him up to the extreme of dila tion, in order to puncture him after, lie "bleed* for hi* cauie " Oh ! ho ! Is it there ye are ? Coming to this point of bleeding, the miin point among "venal politicians," we are aware that Live Oak George has been bled pretty freely by them, upon various pretences, for the last ten or fifteen years. Let us cite a few specimens: ? On the death of Gen. Taylor, there waB some difficulty in getting Mr. Webster and Mr. Cor win to accept a place in Mr. Fillmore's Cabinet. They each required an infit, and a pretty heavy icfit. Well, the guano speculators of this city and Boston raised a heavy purse of fifty th >u- j sand dollars for Mr. Webster, and he went in. ; On the other bard, George Law came to the j rescue of Mr. CorwiD, to the tune of seventy or j eighty thousand, but whether he ever realized j anything or cot from this bleeding we cannot say. Still later, a certain military lawyer of New Ilampi-hire was trotted out for the Presidency, j but could do nothing short of an outfit. It was necessary that some odc should bleed to furnish | bim the accessary pap. The -venal politicians" hod no blood to spare; and so they sent a com mittee of their**. Sangrados to George L%w, and they punctured hiin to the extent of twen ty-five or tbifty thousand dollars. We suspect, . too, that there has been no equivalent rendered for this generous act ol bleeding, to this day. Nor is this nil. Coming a little nearer to the purpof e, we uuderstandfhat not long ago certain ? partisans of the Washington Sentinel ticket of Hunter and Blight, in order to carry out their piogramnie, desired to bleed Live Oak Goorge pretty freely: but it didn't suit hiin. He pro tested. His constitution couldn't stand this promiscuous and incessant puncturing by ?? ve nal politicians ." Ilence, perhaps, the patrio'ic indignation oi the Sentinel. Again, it is reported that the Albany Atlas clique, in behalf of a Mnrcy movement, not long since approached Mr. Law with the object of puncturing bim in a small way, say for five, sewn, or ten thousand dollars; but not less than five thousand. The reply to these " ven il politicians" was that the patient couldn't stand any more bleeding, plethoric as his dear Mends might suppose bim to be. Hence, in all probability . the towering contempt of the Allot for Live Oak George as a candidate for 1856. There i* always "a wheel within awheel among these ' venal politicians"? always. Furthermore, we understand that some ol that forlorn hope of Mr. Fillmore, the silver groys-that little ?' happy family " of the Buf falo Commercial Advertiitr clique have probably made overtures, within their own recollection, to Live Oak George, to bleed him as far as he could conveniently sustain it. in view of bilaging out Mr. Fillmore as the Knaw Nothing favorite. These "venal politicians" m >y also rfmeraber that Law coolly declined w,j further bl* eding on their account. Hence, v.ry hkclj, the sorry sUteanumdiip of George I l; the said CyinMirciaj j Advertiser. These " venal politicians " always have an axe to grind? always. The simple truth of the matter is that Live Oak George has closed his bank, with this no tice on the glass door : ? " Bank closed ? no nore discounts to venal politicians.'' It is high time, for the run upoa him is worse than that at San Francisco. Since the New Hampshire election, we learn, scores of active friends from that State have waited upon him, full of promises and expectations. From West ern New York, Ohio, Michigan, and even from old Viiginia, he has been daily honored with tr<y>ps of political admirers at his residence. He has hardly had time, of late, except on rainy days, to eat his frugal diuner of a beefsteak and an Irish potato, bo hard has been the pressure upon him of the signers of his live oak platform. Gen. Harrison was bro ken down by a similar pressure of devoted fliends; and even "old Rough and Ready" was not rough or tough enough to stand it. It is only a frame of live oak, a head of wrought iron, and a diet of beet steak and Irish pota toes that could stand it The moral of all this is perfectly transpa rent. A tool may see through it. It is simply this, that Live Oak George has had sufficient ex perience among " venal politicians," and has been sufficiently bled by them, to understand them exactly. He is also perfectly indepen dent of them, and wants no subsidies, or bo nuses, or inflts or outfits. It elevated to the White House, he Will not care a fig for the spoils. He has secured enough tftough his own enterprise, talents and industry, and may be better relied upon to protect the trea sury than any starveling and " venal politi cian" from Maine to California. Such is Live Oak George, and such are his present relations to the "kveual politicians'' of the day. He won't be bled any longer. The bank is shut, and, hit or miss, he is resolved to stick to his

live oak platform, and enjoy his besf steak and potatoes. Now, come on. Tub Newb from Mexico. ? We pubKsh elso where a letter from our Vera Cruz correspon dent, which goes far to prove our own surmises on the result of the present crisis in the Mexican republic. Iu the first place, the news of Santa Anna's victory at Iguala over a strong body of insurgents under Moreno, is represented as totally false. We anticipated a9 much, and expressed our convictions on this point directly the intelligence reached us through the govern ment organs of the capital. This sort of game hus been played too often to deceive the world any longer. Our correspondent states that the falsehood was got up to distract the attention of the public ftom the movements of His Highness, so that be might retreat to Tampico, and there take the steamer for Havana or Jamaica. Per haps the revolution has not yet come to such a pass as this, but that eventually it will ensure the downfall of Santa Anna, no sane man can doubt, and the Dictator has enough sagacity to run rather than stand aud meet the ven geance of an oppressed people. In support of bis belief that Santa Anna intends leaving the country, c.ur correspondent adds that Madame Santa Anna lett Mexico city early in March; that it is believed the sailed from Vera Cruz in the English packet, on the 9th instant, and that a carriage belonging to Santa Anna and three millions of dollars were embarked on board the British mail steamer that left on the fifth. The revolution is no doubt drawing near its dee. The star of Alvarez is in the ascen dacj. Tub Baak Advertisements. ? The public will karn nith satisfaction that the Governor has resolved upon the dismissal of Mr. D. B. St. Jehu, who bos given such general dissatisfac tion in the office of Bank Superintendent. Of the Mr. Schoonmaker who haa been nominated, but little is generally known; the public are however prepared to give him a fair trial. This reform accomplished, it is to be hoped that the Legiflature will devote its attention to another subject in the same department urgently requiting reform. We allude to the rule by which the city banks are obliged to pay for a weekly advertisement in some news paper or other, stating their specie, loans, ?fcc., Ac. This is nothing more than a specics of blackmail levied on the banks for the benefit o* some newfpaper or other; a tax which neither benefits them nor profits the public. Every daily journal of any standing is prepared to publit-h the information contained in the adver tisements for nothing, and to be thankful for it as financial news of imp irtance. Thus the pub lic would lose nothing and the banks would save a useless expense, were the rule abolishe'd. We hope the Legislature will see to it. Call Upon the Unterrified Democracy. ?Why don't the unterrified democracy make another bold demonstration in Tammany Hull? The administration wavers, fluctuates up and down, vacillates to and fro, dodges in and out, and still falls back upon Marcy aid his do no'hing old fogy policy. Will the country ttand this? Look at ths revolution going on. It is clear that it the unUrri'lol de mocracy hold back any longer, wai'ing for I llr. I'ierce, they may just as well shut up the old wigwam, restore the key to the lundl>rd, and turn the sachems out to ^rass. The true d<mocracy must look to themselves. They hive no time to lose. Why not call another meeting, on a large scale, and startle the coun try with something bold, dashiug and accepta ble to the people? The people are impatiently waiting. The tide favors a bold movennnt. Why wait till it runs out? I? there no backbone in Tammany Hall ? Let us hear. The New Citt Charter.? We trust that, after the Legislature has disposed of the swindling scheme for the disorganization of j the police under political commissioner*, j S( me lit'le attention will be bestowed oq { Mayor Wood's bill for a new city charier. ' Many bills have been presented to the com- ' mittec ; none of them, we are sure, ao well calculatcd to answer their purpose, and give satisfaction to the community generally as ! tkia one.

Albany, March 26, 1855. The minority report of the Cnnaalttee of Wuys an<l Means of the Hou?? will be submitted on Wednesday. It will be adverse to tolling railroads. Messrs. Altken and Steven* are laboring with teal in collecting facts, authorities and figures in support of their views, to let the sklroadi alone. From Indications given ns we are persuaded that such and arguments will be ad duced, and laid before the Legislature and the people, a* will effectually demolish tho report* of Messrs. Blatch ford snd Gleason, written by the Auditor. It is not exjiected that the minority should recommend any plan to relieve the canal fund from its perplexing condition, it being only their duty to expose the fallacy of the ad ministration in its financial movements, when sash policy i* plainly adverse to the interests of the people 'of the State. Some wiseacre* have the idea that the State will again enter upon building canal*. Senator Field laid npon the table a resolution directing the State Engineer to survey a route from the Erie Canal to the Suspension Bridge. A abort time since a charter was obtained to build a ship canal around Nia gara Falls to compete with the Wetland Uanal. The lobby sgents went to Washington, asking several millions cf public lands from government; but, failing In that scheme of plunder, let the grand project fsll. Now. they only want the Bta e to build a ship canal from Schloeser to the Satpension Bridge. The State builds no more ca. nals, Mr. Field. Mr. Whitney reported the Bochester Claim bill, as di rected When it came up for a third reading, Mr. Hop kin* spoke against piacmg the appointment of eommis skners in the Goveino.-'* hands. If the Governor should make bad appointments, they would not be the first he hsa made lie moved to recommit, w tb instruction-? to strike out commissioners and insert Canal Appraisers, as it originally stood. This was carried? 13 to (? Mr. Barr moved further to instruct by inserting the names of George It. Bsbcock, of Buffalo; Wiiliam C. Bouok, of Schoharie, and Nathaniel Jones, ot Orange. He was only acquainted with Mr. Bouck, who he knew to be hones' and fearless, and from whnt be bad heard of the other two gentlemen, he was satis fied that they would pursue a righteous course. The appraisers are all three party men, selected on ascount of their party affinities, and he thought It was highly in judicious to refer a matter of such immense magnitude to merely political partisans. He only submitted the tsmea which he had, but was not tenacious whether the i<!en:ical person* were selected. Mr. lickinson ? That would be a pr#.ty commission for the ci minant party to select. Mr. Crosbv moved to insert the name of Jama* Bewen, . ol New York, in plice of Mr. Jones. Mr f-herrill thought that ai Mr. Jones was a const I 1 tueat of li s facetious friend, Mr. Watklns, the Senator I from the Ninth, lie ought to be consulted. Mr. Watkins ? 1 am not in favor of a putty hend of \ sny k:nd.

Mr. Rifhop, ot the teuate, and Mr. Blatchford, of the Honte, spoke very eloquently when the resolutions of : the Ten Governors were presented in either Haute, de Imsndlrg committee* of investigation instanter. Now, as tbeie is a di-ect conflict of opinon between certain psi*rs and the Ten Governors in relation (o the conduct ! if the members on the v'.slt to New York, it Is highly proper that those t?o committees should make the nccessary examination, inquire whether the Gov ernor- f-jrcisled brsnly and champagne on the island*, an 1 whether sny of the Maine law memb*rs dtd par take too fieely of the forblrden viands? Besides, some tlilsg must lie placed on the journals of the House, the committess are on record, and It would be unfair ti ad journ without clearing up tbe cisputs.

If he was without genius, and who could act, talk and write well, is still the freshest of the wicked eld author a whore comedies so delighted our great-grandfather*. "He is worth a dozen of your new men," said a celebrat / td actress, when he was verging on fourecoca, and many endorsers/or Peg Wellington's compliment will be found, even in these latter days. " She Would and Sho Would'nt," one of the best of Mr. Qbber's pieces, wan acted last night at Wallaek's. Here is the east:? Den Manuel Mr. Blake. Don Octavio Mr. Ijeeter. Trappanti Mr. Hroaghr.m. Don Philip Mr. Dyott. Don 1 onis Mr. Colby. Diego - Mr. Bernard. Hypolita Mrs. Hoey. Flora Mrs. Stephens. Viletta Mrs. Brougham Roeara Mrs. Conover. This comedy is frequently performed. We believe It was last played at Burton's two or three seasons ago. It is a lively, bustling affair, with a thtn and unsatis factory plot, but with plenty ef busy scenes, odd situa tions. nnd queer Incidents. We hare two oeaentric young wonen? Hypolita and Flora? who put on the " Otr-^ no we never- mention- 'ems," and start upon a Quixotic expedition to prevent Rosara, ths daughter of DonJ Manuel, from marrying any other person except Don Octavio, the brother of Hypolita. Hie last named person is precisely the individual that Don Manuel nesires to prevent from marrying his daughter, and tho j old man, like all the stern lathers in the comedies, is victimized to a tremendous extent by the young diplomatists, who are materially assisted by two roguish servants, Trappanti and Viletta. After five acts of bembooaling, the eu?my Ik conque-ed ? th* ladies get their lovers, and return to the legitimate ap- 1 parel of their sex. The performance last night was not se good as It eught' to liave been. A great ileal that Colley Gibber wrote was omitted, and many thibgs said which he cannot be held responsible for. Th's imperfection made the first part of the piece drsg. Ihe third act, however, was brought up by Mr. Blake's excellent acting in the last scene, and tli" performance from that time till the fell of the cur tain, went on very well indeed. Mr. Bkke, with thel exception of one or two points, including tliaM above named, was not so happy as usual inf Don Manuel, and occasionally seemed in a fog | the words. Mr. Brougham's Trappanti was good ? very like Figaro, and sometimes very funny. One could hardly help admixing such dashing rascality. Don Oct*-| vio and Don Philip are not brilliant parts , they were well| represented by Messrs. Letter and Dyott. Mrs. Hoey'e Hypolita was a neat, well-defined performance, wel^ dieseed and fairly acted. Mrs. Brougham was too sin and elaborate for a p?rt toubrette. Mrs. Conover was ap parently bewildered, acd certainly Imperfect in the text. The ctstumea, scenery, et:., were tasteful and appropri ate. The comedy was well teceived by a very good house, Tn* Gvrkan Ophka. ? "Iter Freischuti" will be gives for the second time at Niblo's to-night.
