Tl?e News. This it; ia big with tbe fate of the liquor -deal era ef tbe State. At four o'clock tbe Senate will take theftaai vote apoa tbe temperance bill, and there ia sow not the shadow of a doubt that it will pass into a law. Adopted aa it will be, with its ?eet stringent clauses, tbe true friends of temper - aaee cannot anticipate much benefit from ita opera tion. No sumptuary law ever proved effective, and ?till leaa will a measure armed with power* so di neatly invasive of tlie lights and libertiea of the citi aen, sueoeed hi enlisting the respect and the sup y?t ef the oommanity. Still we do not regret, on tfc? whole, the passing of the bill. Nothing short af the evil results which it will bring about, will aaoeeed la convincing the physical force reformora ef the absurdity and impracticability of their thearies. A savage riot occurred at the election in Cincin nati yesterday, between the foreigners and A me. itaana. Tbe ballot boxes were, of course, destroyed it the outset; and whether the Know Nothings or 1fce "Sagnicht" party elected their candidates, ?wsld not be ascertained. Several serious fights hook place in different wards of the oity du ring the early 'part of the day, but in the afternoon a terrific battle came off in the Seventh ward. The Dutch paraded with a leaded cannon, bidding defiance to their adversaries. They were speedily attacked, their leld piece captured, and ita fire turned upon Us former poasesaors. It was reported that three foreigners bad been killed. One American was aa severely wounded that for a long time his life was aespaired of. In the evening the Americana ?enaed in procession, with loaded cannon, and paraded the streets ; and it was feared that during Ike aight the riot would be renewed witn increased fcry. The steamer Daniel Webster arrived at New Or leans oa Friday last, with California dates to the 9th of February. The list of suspended bankers had increased by the addition of the firms of Chapin, Sawyer k Co., and J. B. Comery. None of the sub. pended houses had resumed* but it was regarded aa probable tint Page, Bacon A. Co. would soon re* ?eminence payment. The Star of the West is mm due at this port with three hundred thousand dol lar! fat treasure, and tbe details of the news. Ano ther aggression by the Spanish cruisers on our com aserce is reported. Tbe Daniel Webster, on her outward passage, waa fired at by a sloopof war, heought to, boarded, and her papers examined, when she was allowed to pro:?ed on her voyage. The returns from Connesticut indicate that there was no choioe for Governor yesterday by the people. Ingham, the democratic candidate, leads his oppon ants, 'but Miner (American) so far as heard from, has made a splendid run, and the strong American districts yet to come in will probably place him ia advance. It ia thought that the Americans and whig* will have a majority ia the Legislature. Sid- , aey Deaa, American candidate in the Third Con . gressicnal district, has teen elected by a large majority. In the New York Senate yesterday a spicy debate | took place on a preamble and resolution directing appointment of a committee to enquire into the laats relative to the suppression, by Mr. Dickinson, ?f ? communication from the Governor withdrawing the nomination of Dr. Thomp a? for Health Officer. No action was takra an the proposition. Senator Dickinson did not deny the iaipea bment, but rather heart sd of it. The present Legislature has distin guished itself. Between the drunken brawl at Blaehwell's Island, the uncontradicted charges of sheeny ia the Assembly, and the pocketing of offi cial executive messages In tbe Senate, there is no doubt but our law givers will long be remembered. Their feme is short. Let then go ahead. In the Aenemblv yesterday a number of bills were acted ?a. The bill increasing the capital of the Man hattan Chs Company was reported by tho sslsct committee and adopted. A storm ef great violence waa experienced ia the aeigbborhosd of Albany on Sunday. Building! were ?n roofed, chimneys blown down, houses and barns' prostrated, church spires were twisted off, aad a greet amount of daaaage was sustained. Along the river, however, tbe damage waa but trifling.

Mr. Lewis win receive subscriptions this day at the Saint Nicholas Hotel to enable him to bnj more books for the thirty tiro thousand of hia brethren now settled and ready for education. The parties under indictment for capital offences wen arraigned In the Court of Oyer and Terminer yesterday. When the case of the persons implic* ted in the Stanwix Hall tragedy came up, counsel for the prisoners moved to quash the indictment, and entered into an argument in support of the motion, a report of which is given under the proper bead. The District Attorney applied for an order to increase the bail of Mr. Jas. Irving from $10,000 to $25,000, but Judge Gowlea decided to defer his decision upon this point until the motion to quash the indictment was disposed of. Both branches ef the Common Council com menced their Apt 11 sessions last evening. In the Board of Aldermen a communication was received from the Mayor, announcing the fact that a bill is now before the Assembly affirming the privileges and immunities granted to the Broadway Rallroid Company, which wvre annulled by the adjudication ef the courts, given upon the case after an elabo rate discussion, some months sinse. This shame less attempt on the part of the Legislature to secretly set aside the deliberate judgment of the tribunal, and override the powers of the city government, has been met by the Mayor with commendable vigor. In order to checkmate the schemers, he recommended the im mediate repeal of the grant to the Broadway Rail road Company, and the Board of Aldermen, with out hesitation, passed unanimously a resolution in accordance with the suggestion. In the Board of Councilman no very special business was transacted. Mr. Clancey presented a resolution remonstrating against the passage of a bill, now before the Legis lature, organizing certain parties into an associa tion to use the Crystal Palaoe grounds as a market monopoly. The resolution was adopted almost unan imously. In the Board of Supervisors a letter was read from the Receiver of Taxes, replying to a call for information by the Mayor as to the practice of levying extortionate fees upon the bills of delin quent taxpayers. The remarks of Mayor Wood, which were quite pungent, are given in our report of the proceedings. The sales of ootton yesterday reached about 2,000 a 3,000 bales, and prices rallied to the extent of about i cent per lb. on the previous decline. Mid dling uplands closed at ?Jc. Flour improved about 6?c. a 12c- per barrel on common aud medium grades. Wheat was scarce and firm. New Jersey yellow corn sold at $1 02, and prime Southern white was held at $1 03. Pork again advanced. Old mess closed at $15, and new at about $16 87 a $17. Beef was also firm. 000 tierces India beef, sold for exportM at $28 50, and 1,000 tierces government navy pork on terms stated elsewhere, and the freight en the same engaged for shipment to Eig land by the steamship Atlantic, at 9r. per tierce. Freights by sailing vessels were steady, but rather quiet. Cuba? IU AfMwuilutlon Aiiomlng a Definite Shape? What Say* the AdmlnUtrmtlon J From the highly interesting and important Spanish intelligence which we published yester day, it iB manifest that the Africanization of Cuba has at length become the avowed and Bettled policy of the government of Queen Isabella. We recnr to the debate in the Cortes [ of March 8, and to the following declaration of the Prime Minister, Senor Luzuriaga, which received on the Bpot the unanimous approval ot the Assembly. We translate from the report of the Paris Presse. Speaking of Luzuriaga, in the afore said debate, it says : ? " On this occasion the minister made a declaration which reflects the highest honor upon him, as well as upon die cabinet whose sentiments be expresses. He said that without invading the right * of established property ? without re/using to compensate them by suitable indemnity ? the Spanish gorernment was finally decided to put an end to a barbarous institution , which all civilized nations condemned, and which Af. Luzuriaga did not fear to call a pest and a shame to humanity ." This is Africanization in an official, distinct, and emphatic shape. The slaveholders of Cuba are to be indemnified according to the British West India emancipation By stem, we presume, which has reduced Jamaica comparatively to a desert, and which probably contemplates no thing more nor less than the ultimate organi zation of all the West India Islands into a confederated free negro empire, under a European " balance of power.'' We snepect that England, at least, looks to some such ultimatum, and that the present government of Spain would prefer the transfer of Cuba to Soulouque for a trifle, to the cession of the island to the United States for double its value in ready money. " The Spanish government is finally decided" upon its course of action. It has discovered that African slavery is "a barbarous institu tion;" that "all civilized nations condemn it;" an institution which the Spanish premier him pelf does not hesitate to denounce as "a pest and a shame to humanity." So we perceive that since the expulsion of the queen mother, Chris tina, a great moral revolution has been worked out in the government ot her daughter. The pin money of Christina, as all the world knows, was derived lor many years from her commis sion, firr capita , upon African slaves success fully landed in Cuba, in spite of international laws and Spanish treaties denouncing the traffic as piracy. It is also known that the Spanish authorities of the island shared in these pirati cal profits, and that the Cortes at Madrid qui etly connived at, if they were not directly im plicated in the business. Whence this sudden revolution in Spain, which not only recoils upon the African slave trade, but upon the old-established and successful institution of slavery in Cuba. as "a pest and a shame to hwuunitj?'* We may charge it to the ma chinations of England and France, to the disaf fected Creoles or Cuba, to the filibusters ot the United States, to the minion of Mr. Soul<-, and to the sonviciion at Madrid that thu Africaniza tion of Cuba will be an infallible safeguard against the absorption of the island into the Ame rican Union, and the only infallible barrier, henceforth and forever, to that consummation. The jealous vigilance of England, the mission of Souh', tbe Ostcnd Conference, and the general filibustering pretensions upon which this Pierce administration set out upon its worse than useless {rxperiment* in European diploma cy, have, however, been the chief instrumen talities io the conversion of Spain to the Ameri can anti-?lavery doctrine* of the British aris tocracy. We hav? thus had. ^ince the return of Mr. Sonli''. two very significant declaration! from the Spanish Cortes. or national Legisla tnrff, unanimously adopted, to wit:? let. That the ?ale of Cuba would be the sale of the national honor. 2d. That the supreme government hastinaily decided upon the policy of the abolition of slavery in the inland. The first of those declaration* clow the door to the K^uiiitioQ of CuU by diplomacy, Tie island 1b not for sale. The second proposes to make it as repulsive as Hayti, if conquered by war. Abolition touches the vulnerable point. It is the arrow in the heel of Achilles. Abolish flavery in Cuba, and what can we do with it? The South will not consent to the annexation of a free negro rendezvous for their fugitive slaves ; nor will the North consent that slavery shall be there re-established. Or what will avail its restoration, with the existing 500,000 slaves turned free, in addition to the 200,000 fYee blacks now in the island? What would Cuba be worth, as a free gift to the South, with a population, to begin with, of 700,000 free negroes, against an aggregate of 600,000 whites, such as they are ? We have had the cry of "wolt," "wolf," so long and so often from the Cabinet organ at Washington, that it has ceased to excite any further alarm than the boy in the fable. But here we have the wolf himself before us. The Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs says his government "has finally decided" to put au end to the institution of slavery in Cuba. Meantime the warlike defences of the island against insurrectionists and filibusteros are to be strengthened, and Cuba is not to be sold. It would be -'the sale of the national honor." These are the temporary safeguards. The per manent guarantee against any future invasions or designs from the United States is this policy I of Africanization, upon which the Cortes have "finally decided." The question then recurs, with redoubled force, "what is to be done?" How are we to prevent the fulfilment of this scheme of Afri canization, upon which the abolition aristo cracy of England and their affiliated traitors of the North rely so strongly for sapping the in tegrity of the domestic institutions of the South, and the peace of this Union ? We see no other alternative of safety than an extra session of Congress, and the recommendation of mtch a line ??faction to the two houses, as will, if adopted, bring Spain and her protectors, England and France, to an immediate settle ment. As we have urged again and again, wa now repeat, that we may dictate to Spain si id her allies our own terms of a permanent adjust ment; whereas, by a postponement, even till next December, the game may be lost Forms or against us, the present crisis, from all appearances, on both sides of the Atlantic, determines the "manifest destiny" of Cuba. Will the administration be content with the poor expedient of sending Mr. Dodge to Madrid? Let them rather Bake a clean breast of it, con fess their sins and' their imbecility, admit the danger, and, urging the necessity of action, throw themselves upon the mercy and the pa triotism of a new Congress, fresh from the peo ple. Let Mr. Pierce call an extra session, lay his case before it like a man, and abide the result. What has he to lose ? Mr. Soulk'h History- of his Mission to Spain. ? The art t>f diplomacy seems of late to have entirely changed its character. Secresy is no longer looked upon as one of its indispensable conditions. There waB a time when nothing short of ministerial permission would have un loosed a government official's tongue. Now we find members of the same Cabinet, diplo matists of the same legation, and generals of the same army , rushing into the tribune or into print to assert their individual independence of opi nion and action. We have recently had some curious illustrations of this fact in the deser tion of his colleagues by Lord John Russell, the denunciation of the late head of the English Board of Admiralty by Sir Charles Napier, the exposure of Lord Raglan's blunders by his own generals, and the bitter castigation of Louis Napoleon's grand political mistake? the Cri mean expedition ? by, if report speaks true, his own cousin and heir. Alter these DoUble examples we are not sur prised to learn that Mr. Soull Is preparing a history of hiB mission to the Court of Spain, with a full exposure of all tho secret wire-pull ings at Washington, by which his efforts for a satisfactory adjustment of the Cuban question were crossed and thwarted, together with the various interesting and spicy epi sodes, in the shape of court intrigues, court amusements, court mystifications and affairs of honor, by which this most remarkable of modern diplomatic missions was divcrsfied. Judging by the ability, liveliness of imagina tion and causticity displayed in Mr. Soull's official correspondence, we anticipate a prodi gious success for hiB book. It will be read by every one is the two hemispheres who takes the slightest interest in European politics. No man? not even excepting Louis Napoleon or the late Emperor Nicholas? has been more talked about, more written about, more villifled, or perhaps more misunderstood, than Mr. Soule. Such, at all events, is his own impression, and he is justified in endeavoring to set himseli right with the world, the more particularly as the executive at Washington does not Beetn over- anxious to aid him in the effort. As a business speculation, 'we do not know anything more profitable to which Mr. SohK' could at present turn his hand. His book will prove a perfect mine of gold to him. With such a card to play, he could well afford to despise the salary of Ambassador to Spain, even with its prospective increase, accompanied as it was, and would still continue to be, with so much opprobrium, vexation, personal annoy ance and danger. This is the uge of great po litical and personal revelations. State-craft has no longer any secrets from the multitude, and even aggrieved lovers cannot help confiding their sorrows to the public. Pamphlets, auto biographies and political memoirs crowd fast and thick upon us, taking away our breath by the novelty, the importance, the piquancy or the pcandal ot their disclosures. Tho richest, raciest, most instructive and amusing of all these valuable contributions to the literature of the day, will, however, be this forthcoming narrative of Mr. Soul?. He has so much to tell that we want to know, and that we can't get at, owing to the care that has been taken by the administration to withhold it from us, that all ! the world will be in a perfect fever of curiosity 1 until his book maker* its appearance. A 1 ri/aeimtnto of all the political and personal possip of the Kuropean courts? an exposure of all the secret springs of action and motives of the.leading political parties of the Old World, and a vindication of the author's conduct j throughout the most critical and trying cir cumstances, aggravated, an it was, by treachery in the quarter from which he had most reason U expect support ? this work will he read with avidity on both Rides of the Atlantic. The fbarafcr Wikoff had better hurry up with hll htatory of hie political relations with the Eng lish ?c>vcrni?*.nt, or it will be eclipsed in In terest by the diplomatic memoirs of the Cheva lier Soul*. The Hew fcwtld Sebemr? Control of the NIn to be Obtained If Powlblo. Though the meeting at the Tabernacle and the strictures of the press may be said to hare killed off the Police bill which the friends of Mr. Seward had introduced into the Legisla ture, the scheme has not on that account been abandoned. It is new intended, wa learn from a correspondent, that the Police bill shall be quietly dropped, but that its provisions, em bodied in a brief section or two, and couched as i an amendment, shall be incorporated into the j new Charter bill. As tbis latter is sure of the j support of a commanding majority, it is ex- ( pected that the obnoxious change may be < smuggled through, without notice, under its { cover. The end of the session will of course be 1 chosen for the accomplishment of the triok and, as usual, a large proportion of the me bers will be unconscious of what they V done until the bill is a law. This is the ' j^jcu. lation, and it is a pretty shrewd one. Should it be carried out according t ^ ^e8i(?n a double aim will be accomplished ^ ward men will gain the support of ^ and the keepers of the houses ^ for future political operatior ^ ,Already the pecuniary aid of these persor seemed to the extent of $20,000 for ,|jje purpose of taking from Mayor Woo* i;QD7tpart of the eou trol he may n?i? lia?'e ever ?the police ferce, and handing it over ^ je88 scrupulous indi viduals. It is a dee ^ ggheme to oyertirow

the present excell' ^ p0nce and bring back the odious system w Wft8jB existence a year or two ago. Are we prepared for this change ? Are the peop M v?illiug to have " short boys," rowdies and t mffians made the guardians of the city ? Ar t ?tho members of the Legislature from the rural J districts willing to have their wives and dr ^ghters subject to insult and outrage when- ivor they visit the metropolis ? T'ne fact is Mr. Seward cannot dispense wi.th the aid of the New, York police. They '*re essential to his ambitious schemes. If anything is to grow out of the recent dis organization of parties to his advantage, the first thing needful is the command of the New York mob, and they can only be commanded through the police. Should his partisans bring him forward next year as a Presiden tial candidate as they intend to do, if they con, the police must be on their side, or the city, which ought to be his stronghold, is se cured to his opponents. Naturally, the police side with the democratic party. If they were left to themselves to vote their own way, it is pretty certain that a large majority of them would vote the democratic ticket. Bat this ha? so rarely happened, these conditions have been so rarely fulfilled, that their natural proclivi ties matter little. Policemen like soldiers, do as they are bid: whether in voting or patrolling. They have moreover a wonderfully nice sense of what is judicious and what hurtful at elec tions: know the men they should arrest for dis turbing the peace, and the men they should never see in any mischief ; can make an opponent move on with a perfectly calm face, while they allow a crowd of their own facuon to block the way. By these means, inde pendently of their own vote which cannot be rated at lets than a thousand, they control in reality an electoral patronage unqestionably greater than that of any other body or agency in the State. It would not be two much to say> considering how many nun abstain from voting altogether, that at any seriously contested elec tion the police are sure to turn the scale in favor of whichever side they espouse. Hence the anxiety of tfr. Seward's friends to get them out of th? hands of the present Commissioners, and render them dependent on and responsible to tools of their own. We gather from our Albany correspondent's des patch that two parties, one a hard shell, the other a soft, have put their hands in their pcckets and sent three thousand dollars to Al bany to help carry the bill, with a view of ob taining a commissionership apiece. There is nothing surprising in this; but the reader must not be misled by names. These generous men may have been hards or softs in times past: now they are Seward men, and nothing else. They are pledged to do Seward's work in their office of commissioners; if they are not, they have no chance of the office, and have invested their money badly. It remains to be seen whether there is any one in the Legislature who will take the initia tive in exposing ? it only needs to be exposed? this flagrant fraud. Mr. Robert Tyler versus Georok Law. ? Now and then we hear of Captain John Tyler, and more frequently of Robert, a promising and talented chip of the old block. In fact, the Captain has left the field of politics to Robert, pretty much as Martin Van fiuren has left it to Prince John. The last demonstration of Mr. Robert Tyler, who is at once a poet and a politician, was at Philadelphia last week, in a regular set speech against the Know Nothings, ia which he says : ?

TUB TKMfUKANOl BILL, KTO., BTC. Aibamt, April 2, IMS. ? Since U>t Wednesday? secret executive session day? when hla honor, Lieutenant Covernor Raymond, aston ished everybody by voting to confirm the nomination of Dr Thompson aa Health Officer, rumor* have circu lated quite extensively that everything was not on th? square in that exeou?ve session. On Saturday It be eame directly charged that Governor Clark sent a mes-, aenger to that *ecret sesaion, with a commu-.loatlon withdrawing Thompson's mime. This doeument wM never placed before the Senate, and people outride an<J, Senators Inside gaped with wonder at Its suppression. Senators themselves felt implicated; thoLieuteaaet Go? ernor and the Clerk weie both placed in ? very unpieaaaat position, as the public were gaxlng upon them wiib great reasons for suspicion of having withheld a paper fron\ the Senate, transmitted by his Excellency the Governor. Senator Butts, not willing that sueh rumor i siiouM longer be tolerated, offered a preamble and re.olutlo*, this morning, setting fortb tbe allegauone, the appointment of a comm'ttee to Investigate the alHlr. After a desultory debwte ftr half an hour, In whmb majority decidedly .avored an investigation, the muter was drepped for the present. Now, here is divulged one of the most highhanded transactions ever recorded in a deliberative body Tho Governor, tor reason* best snown to himself, place* \p the hands of one of hi- conBl-ntial friend* t docimont addressed to the 6?nat? or tv* presiding officer. Instead ot delivering it, thi* friend took the responsi tt'lty or suppressing it, and the Senate proceeded with its deiib rations in secret sess.oa, entirely ignorant that the Go vernor desired to withdraw the came of the candidate whom he bad previously ror.omnutn.lad. His Excellency, undoubtedly bad the heat of reasons for withdrawing Thompson ; he had been importuned by hundreds of the" wiseit and most judic'ou* friends in the city of New York i-nd other part* ot the State, not to thru it Thomp son into the best office In his gift, when th?re were so many men more capanU and more deserving, both aa professional and political persons. Mr. Dlcklnlnson la tlmated that be received a private note from the Govor- t nor. permitting Mm to exercise his dlamption with the communication, and still, Mr. D. declaredle did not know the contents or the document The Investigation will ?lieit the fact whether the private note was written by Governor Clark on Wednesday, or at some suosequent period, te meet the exigency which had happened. The resolution wlil be adopted when again taken up, and then tbe public will ascertain tbe tact, whether Myron ff. Clark or Abpam B. Dickinson was elected Governor in November. | _ _ ,, _ One thing is absolutely certain- The confirmation of Thompson I alls to the ground, for this reason The withdrawal of his nomination was sent to the Senate by the Governor before any vote upon It was taken. Dur ing the discussion that withdrawal waa in possession of aSenator, whs chote ?ot to communicate it, Thtrofor* it will appear in evidence that when the vote was taken to confirm, there was absolutely no nomination lor Health Officer before the Senate. And whe* Thompson applies for tbe keys of the Marine Hospital, he will bo met by Doctor Bartlett with a quo warranto, compelling him to show by wbnt right and title he aspires to the health office. The Senate voted under a mistaken idea that Thompson's name was before them, whereas the contrary will apptsr, that it was withdrawn The act of withholding it from the Senate doe* not vitiate ( the Governor's intentions' The farce of a call of the House wa? continued nearly throush the morning se-slon. A* delinquent membere appeared they were paraded before the Speaker's chair, and rendered their excuse*. Mr. L*igh would not con deaoend to offer any excuse, and the House fined him three dollars, to be remitted in a day or two . The ses- < slon* of Saturday afternoon and thl* morning, were both consumed in this absurd awe ridiculous matter. If the House Intends to keep its members on duty, it must in flict otner punishment than listening to frivolous ex cuses and than purge them of their contempt Instanter. Mr. Speaker Littlejobn wanted to Impose some penalty that would be effectual in preventing members from run* nlng away, but the faree of this morning shows that the ? House is too lenient to the ab.eotee*. If a week's salary were deducted, then a more steady application ,to duty would prevail. ^ , . ... .
