Bj .the arrival of the America at Halifax we k?w e received three days later intelligence from Ev rope. As was anticipate tie interprets, on pat upon the third poiat by the plenipo tentiaries of the allies has proved too stroa? a dcM for the Rawian envoy to rwallo w. Although the demolition of S'baswpol ii said not to have been insisted a poa by tte Western Powers? 'heir demands being confined to the reduction of the na' vaJ forces of lluseia in the Black Sea? Prince Gorta ?bakofT refused to accede to this modified condition, stating that be roust refer the matter to St. Peters burg. Nothing, of course, ia positively kaowa as to *be preciie ca'are of the dteagreemeat, as tbe dietasmoBs at the ronferenoes are kept strictly se cret, and, therefore, we must take this statement with a qaalifi aiion. Wa believe that when the facts become known it will turn out that it is on ihia very question cf the razing of Sebastopol that the d fltrenee has taken piacs. We are jastidsd :n this suggestion by the fa;! that tho Kig'ith acid French plen:po:entiarieo have bean ob.iged U refer back to their Courta for instrac t?cn?. and that immediately on the receipt of the Xitws, M. Drouyn de L'Huys, th? Fieaoa Minister of Forei?n AfTa rs, left Paris f;r London, where, ac eeacpaitied bj Count Wa-.Iensteia, h<i had an inter view of tiree h-urs duration with the leading mem bers of the English Cabinet. Taw cosfersncs ii ?'*ted to have b^en of a most i nporUat character, it bvirg th*a decided that M. Droujn Je L'Huys ebould proceed at once to Vienna, tmriog tie irra vocable decision of ths allies on the poiat iadli l?*e. He accordingly left for Paris tha sarn? night, cd hie way to the Aobt ian capital. From these facts it may be iti rred that conditions more hu nuXatisg than the mere nuaier' cal redaction of ths Ruisiar. fleet in ;te Black Sea tad been insisted cpt'E at tie conference. * Afl'sire in the Crimea remained in piet;y nearly tbe rame stale as at the da e of our previous advices.

A r:aolutiou to adjourn at 12 to-d?y wa> oppoafd in thj Senate, aad a proposition to adjourn at 2 o'clock was prevented in the A-iaembly, but n) action was taken upon either. In the Senate the resolution amendatory of the constitution, so m to allow negroes to yote, was laid on tie table. The bill i mending the Temperance act was concurred in. A number of o:her bills passed? none of them, however, of publis InUraal. At the dite of our last despatch the Supply bill was under consideration. In the Assembly the bill to nullify the Fagtdre 3' stye law was promptly defeated by a vote of 68 to 39. The bill-! relating to the New York gas companies were p?eed; also toe bLl proyidiag for an investi gation oi the claims of the Rjchester millers; like wise bills ongoing emigrant passengers arriving at this port, an! e?taDlis'aing a board of railroad ccmmissicmrs. The Governor has vetoed the bill to prevent illegal voting In the city of New York, upon constitutional grenade. George E. Biker, Esq., of Williamsburg, has b6?n appointed private eecretary to the Governor in place o> J. J. Chambers, promoted to a harbor mwter ship. Nothing beyoi d routine business came up ia the Bcaid of Cjunciimen last evening. The first order of the evening was the third reading of bills, and among those psssed was the report of the Commit tee on Finance, in relat'on to advartislag the pro ceedings of the Common Council. The report of the Fioarce Committee on the Reynolds contract was refeired back to the Committee oi the Whole. It was, however, subsequently taken up, amended, and adopted in wmmittoe. The Case or Consular Agent Thompson In Cuba. The government of Spain, some years ago, notified the President that they would re ceive only four consuls in Cuba, viz.: at Ha vana, Ma'.anzas, Trinidad de Cuba, and St. Jagu de Cuba. Under this notification the Department were obliged, of course, to prescribe the jurisdic tions of the four consuls appointed. Thaw of the Havana has Mar id alone as an outport; that of Matanzas has the port of Cardenas, and has heretofore exercised jurisdiction over San Juan de los RemeJi03, Sagua la Grand, &c. The office, for instance, at Cardenas, is exceed ingly important, the number of American ves sels arriving and departing during the year being little less than at Matanz&a, and more, it is believed, than at Rio de Janeiro. It is manifest, then, that there is an absolute necessity that our commercial affairs at Car denas should be attended to by an agent of the consulate duly appoiuttd by tue resident Consul at Matanz&B. In this way the consulate at Mutanzas assumes the char acter, in fact, of a Consulate- General. The agent thus appointed is notified to the govern ment at Washington aad to the Captain General. His recognition by the last named functionary is neither demanded or expected. He is merely the agent of the Consul to do the public busi ness of the United States within his jurisdiction, and is provided with the arms and flag of the United States to signalize his position. He is in no way to iuterfere with the locil authorities, but must leave such business to the Consul appointing him. llis acts are received at the Custom Houses in this country aud by the department, at Washington, with neither of which authorities, however, can he directly communicate. It is manifest, then, that whatever may be the restricted form of the Queen's ex equatur to the Consul, his agents hare a legal right to exercise the functions of the consulate within the sphere of their appointments. It is a right which ha* been uniformly conceded ? a right not only necessary to the commerce ot the United States, but the least dangerous and offensive form in which consular acts could be performed in the several small ports. By aggregating the consulates, the office is maie so much aa object of protU as generally to staire the services of enlightened and liberal men as incumbents ; and ia this way the local governors of her M.ijcaty are spared the offen sive intermeddling so often the resalt of dij I tribnting small men at small incomes and pluccs. Mr. Cousular Agent Thompson was then the agent of the Consul at Trinidad de Cuba, Mr. McLean, lie bad a right to the position he occupied? and t,o demand the removal of the arms of the United States, furnished him by the Department of State, and to imprison him for refasing to comply with so offensive a requisition, fa an outrage against Mr. Thompson personally, his princi pal, Mr. McLean, and vhe dignity of the Uuited Statfs, which do apology caa well palliate. 1 i tbis ait was recorded alone upon the records of Cuban offences, it might passed without notice, l?t it must be remembered that Mr. Cross, the recognized Vice Consul at Matanzas s?me thirteen years ago, was arrested on the affidavit of a low aud degratUrd wotaau, and imprisoned 117 daja. The records of the State Department arc fall of these outrages; bat tbey have never, except un4er Gen. Jackson, in Ihe case ef Mr. Shoemaker at Matanzas, l>een turnfd over to the navy for correction. If that arui of defense and becurity is now called into requisition it will be one ol the first positive necs to which it has been put for mmy years. The case of Mr. Thompson is susceptible of no explanation v. biob will at all justify the au thorities arresting him. His arrest is not alone a personal affront; it is a national insult, which Jt it the d-ity of the President to see atoned for. ?? does no! s*. and atone, and if the remedy ap plied shall be ringulir in its vigor and resolu tion it will be a Pu??j*iOt of congratulation by tbc A inerican people. ?Locsy, Gosmmh, Cbuctlsss."? ?

Some of our self-conceited old style journals are learnedly engaged just now in discussing the right of search at sea, and its amies and dimen sions. We think that the exact merits of the whole question may be put into a nut shell. The general principle of the right of search, on land or sea, is practically the same thiog. A police officer may arrest a thief on Broadway, but such officer must abide by the consequences if by mistake he arrests and detains an honest man upon suspicion that he is a thief. So upon the ocean, a pirate or fllibaster may be arrested, or brought to, with a shot or a broadside, if he attempts to escape. But if the cruiser in search of lawless vessels mistakes an honest steamer for a pirate or filibuster, and treats it accordingly, the cruiser and the government to which it belongs are responsible for the outrage, and may justly be required to answer for it. The offended party may send out and 6eize the offender and bind him over to keep the peace. For a conclusive exposition of the maritime right of search or .visit, for they are the same thing, we would refer our would-be learned but pettifog^ig cotemporaries to the unanswerable letter of Mr. Webster, of March 28, 1843, as Secretary of State, to Mr. Everett, then our Minister at London. It is the American doc trine, upon which this country fought the war of 1812; upon which it refused to enter into the European quintuple alliance of a later pe riod ; upon which was negotiated the Ashbur ton treaty, and which was proclaimed, at least temporarily, as the doetrine of England on the outbreak of this present Russian war. The deck of an American ship is American soil, and all unlawful trespassers should be treated ac cordingly. Commodore McCauley and his Instruc tions.? Much noise is made in certain quarters about the sealed instructions which were de livered to Commodore McCauley before he sailed. It is supposed by some that they were of a highly belligerent character, and amount ed at least to an order to the Commodore to sink any Spmish frigate which presumed to stop an Ameiican vessel. We do not believe it. We know what those instructions should have been. We can tell exactly what the honor of the country and the safety of cur commerce re quired. But we feel confident that anything but this would suit the temper of the President. With Franklin Pitrce at the head of affairs and his present Cabinet around him, a belligerent or spirited policy cannot uider any circum stances be looked for. Those who expect to hear of a blow being struck will be disappoint) ed. Those who fear a war with Spain miy make themselves easy. There will be nothing of the kind ? nothing but flourishes for bin combe. At the sa:ae time, as it is quite clear tha'. a single man of spirit might at this moment plunge us into hostilities with Spain, it is quite proper that we should examine the condition of the navy. There cau be no question but the Navy Department of the United States is in the same condition as the British Army Depart ment; in other words, that it is beyond descrip tion deplorable. Thy army is better. In fact, it is well organized: was put on a sound foot ing after the war of 1812 by John C. Calhoun while Secretary of War, and has remained in a deccnt state of efficiency ever since. Whence the succes6iul campaigns in Mexico. If war weie to break out, it would be found servioca-" bl?. But, as assuredly, the Navy Department would be found useless. The ships might do their duty; but the organization at headquar ters would be found so absurd and so inefficient that the gravest disasters would be inevitable There would be found to exist the same help less imbecility in superannuated chiefs, the same absurd division of authority, the same blind devotion to routine which, as it appears, ruined the Biitish' army before Sebastopol. Let Mr. Dobbin look to it. What is Mayor Wood to Do? ? The friends of the new coercive liquor law count upon Major Wood as their efficient agent in en forcing it in this city. But how is he to de it ? "Major Wood has a polioe force of a thousand n.e n; and we understand that he considers it impossible i,o enforce this law of pains and peiMlties short of a farce of two thousand m?n. Give him, theu, another thousand to -his present police corps, at an increased taxation of half a million to the city aud he may do something. We are in favor ol all laws being earned out, even unjust aud u:icon stitutional laws, for the sake of the great-eiv ing principle of obedience to the laws ; and b???use the people, in regard to anuDju?it law, hold the lawful remedy of repeal in their hasds. We are informed, however, that a l>ody of our fellow-citizens, representing property to the amount of fifty millions of dollars, have respired to raise a fund of a round million, if necesmy, for the purpose of testing this prohibitory act, in every legal form, and in ev?iy Court up to which it can be oarsied. Whatever, therefore, may be the moral result* of this despotic law, there is aftir prospect that it will give plenty of work to the Mayor, the Corporation, the police, the lawyers a?ul tbo taxpayers. In view of the confcequeocss of this act, and the teideucies of the State .Legislature at Al bany againBt the interests ?f this metropolis, it would perhaps be well for the poople of this island, in conjunction with the citizens of Long Jsland, Coney I-land and ?katen Island, to consult upon the expediency of organizing themselves into an independent Stata or upon the policy of hitching on to the State of New Jersey. Why not? SVby not, at Jc*st, have a public meeting upon the subject in the Park ? Rxaminr Yocr Gah ? Tin? singulir ' anomalies presented by the bills of the g \n ; companies at thin season of the year render it decirabto that a comparison should be Citab- ; liFh?d between them in order to arrive at pome j estimate of the principle on which tkolr chargcs are tlundcd. Wo &u noi wish to ia sinuate that the priccs charged to consumers j nrc rot ba sd upon settled data, and thit they ! <lo rot present a proper and 9y-toaatic <Iif- j f< rence between tie cost of the article tod the i fair proftto wbich tbe companies are ? n+i tied ; but we ctflnot (?hut our cjcb ;ir?l our ears to tbe fh c 4 thit both 'n our o,m ca-'c ind in taut of others, whenever &n economy of consnmp. lion if attempted vc discover no proportionate bent II* from it in 'he amount of our bills. It >s | a singular cir instance, too, that wh?n th? | cbar gc of ?>eas?.>n bring* about. a ^enor?l reduc- , tioc in >h" amont of k** u*C'l. r?nd necessarily \ In ihft bill- of the companies, a l tten.p'.s t'> j establish a correct oomp iri'-u of c ms mptlou ' trc- *Mb fad arc. Per :n<**nc6, if a ! man, by way of experiment? and we know of its being done In several instances ? should con tinue in April or May to born exactly the same amount of ga8 that he consumed in January, he would, nevertheless, find his gas bills reduced in a seasonable proportion as if an actual eco nomy had been effected. We do not pretend to explain the causes of these discrepancies. We know that gas pipes are leaky and that gas itself is of elastic properties, and therefore arc ready to make all reasonable allowances for trilling inconsistences between consumption and charge. Bat we hear on all sides so many complaints of the serious extent to which these little accidents are pressing upon the pockets of consumers that we begin to think that the sub ject merits some inquiry on the part of the public. We should be glad, therefore, if thoso who have suffered by this unaccountable elas ticity in gas supply and gas charges would furnish us with the result of their observations in order that an effort may be made to arrive at some proximate guess at its causes. Archbishop Hughes a.vd the Roman Catr. oijc Church Property. ? Mr. Putnam's bill having become a law, the question now arises what will Archbishop Hughes do ? He has declared his intention of defeating the law, or attempting to do so on some technical quibble. It will not be easy for him to accomplish this design unless the Catholics ot his congregation are as devoutly submissive to his mandates as Catholics used to be to clerical magnates in the middle ages. The law imposes on them the duty of selecting trustees in whose name the propei ty is to be vested ; and in default ot their doing 60, the Attorney General will be bound forthwith to proceed against the tenants of the property with a view to its escheat to the State. If, therefore, they obey the Arch bishop and not the law, it is not impossible but the State may find itself two or three millions richer one of these fine days ? a consummation by no means to be despised at a time when canal mismanagement has reduced us to a state of quasi- bankruptcy. It is supposed that Arch bishop Hughes holds titles to property belong ing to the church and worth from a million to a million and a half: that the Bishop of Buffalo is the cominal owner of half a million worth, and that as much is held in the name of the Biehop of Albany. If the Roman Catholics do not take the measures prescribed by law for securing this property, or if they allow the Archbishop to make legal experiments with it, they may find, sooner than they expect, that the State has relieved them of the trouble of caring

for it. Croton Water.- -The rapid increase ol our population calls for an increased supply oi water ; but the enforcement of the Maine Liquor law will make an additional Croton re servoir or two an immediate necessity. Five millions more for Croton water. Taxpayers, walk up and settle. THE LATEST NEWS. BY MAGNETIC AND PRINTING TELEGRAPHS. Another Cuban Outrage. ARB EST AMD IMPRISONMENT OP DR. PECK.

No clue could be obtained by ibe Coroner to the perpetrator of the deed, and although a reward of 1600 we* offered for the apprehension of the lad, *ti>l no tra^e of Dim could be found. Yesterday, Sergeant Mansfield, of the Lower l'ollce Court, arrested a young Geimin. named Wm. Wia je*, on suspicion of having been the person who drove the butchesJe wagon on the unfortunate occasion. The evidence against Winjes i* his own confession as to ha ving knocked down a person in Greenwich street same months ago. It seems that this Wiojes drove a batcher' a wngon, aoout eight months ago, for a butcher doing business in William street. That he knocked down a boy in Greenwich afreet on that ocoutfon. bat did not injure him severely He says that he wa* puriacd by a policeman, and that the occurrence happened in the evening. His statement is in alooit exact accordance with the witness that appear* against him, Jaoob Lang, of 26b William street, to wbom he told the cir*ntnstanse of hi* having knocked the boy down in Greenwich street. A* the deceased was a married man, wa* killed about two months apOj and at a very early hour in the morn* mg, and the accident having happened in Hudson street, there is not much probability of Wioje* being t.he per son who drove the butcher'* wagen over the de -eised. The magUtrato, however, committed Wiojes to prison for examination. CHARGE Or BURGLARY ?

Officer Knapp pursuing them, succeeled in arresting Price, who on being taken before Justice Brennan, at the Second District Police Coart, Jefferson Market, committed him to ptUon for examination. None of the stolen property wa* found in the possession of the prisoner. CHABOE OF PELL f SO LOTTERY POLICIES.

Stolkn Property Rkcoverkd? a Captain of Polio* Committed for Contempt.? Some day a ?in:e the safe in the brewery of Meiers Fit patrick ft Quinn ?u der teiously opened and robbed of $300, consisting o'gold, silver and bills. Suspicion fell upon * lad employed about the establishment, named James MjKee, and be was thereupon taken into custody by officer Stewart of the Fourth District police. By working upon his feara the boy at length acknowledged that he had taken the money and placed it under a stone in an open lot in the yiciniiy. The office* with one of the firm, ac:ompanied the boy to the spot d< i {sated, and found the money. Yesterday morning the accused was taken before Justice Curtis, by Mr. tail, the Captain of the Fourth District police, for examination on the charge against him. On taking the lad into court, the Captain state 1 the caw, but the Justice, for tome reason unexplained, refused to receive tbe complaint from him. Capteia Call there upon turned to go ont, remarking, audibly at he went, that he should lay tbe matter before the Grand Jury. Shortly aftsr he returned to the court room when the Justice arraigned him for contemet of Court, in making nse of the above expression, and sentenced him to the County Jail lor six hours. A Jury and Cokstable Arraigxto for Cotte^pt of ( Court. ? Yesterday morning I.aac Thompson, constable of the Ssvtnteenth ward, and John Mead and eleven others composing the jury empannelled to try an a :tion brought by Horatio D. Jonea against Ecgleteit Sheriff of Kings county, were arraigned before Judge Culver of the City Court, to show cause why tbsy should not be pu nit bed for contempt. It appears ttat on Mon day last, the 9th lost., the jury retired to deliberate up on a verdict in the above case, and no* hav-ag ?^reed at the adjournment of the Court, were placed in cca.'ge of tte constable lor the night. Eatables were famished, them by order of the court, in the early part of ths even iog. On returning from the room inwhijh they were confined, the conetable locked the door and prc:oeded to the Common Council chamber, (t\e Board being then in session,) for the purpose of rending word to his family by some of the Aldermen, that he woald bs unable to get sway be' ore morning. During bis aheence the door of the "jury room was pried open, and one of tts jury men went out and brought in a bottle of liquor, of which several of the others imVbel. On the return of Ibe constable he found the doar bior.en open, and that the jurymen had bein indulging in sp'iituou? liquors, and finding that they were unable to agree, and believ ing that & verdict found under the cir^umitacces would not be rec'ivei by the court, he took upon him self the responsibili'y of discharging them. This is a plain statement of the case, as given in the affidavit of tbe constable, who was represented by counsel. Mead was likewito represented by counsel. From tne state in' ntn of tbe jurymen themselves It could not be deter mined wbo drank of the lienor, and each of them dis avowing any intentional r.isres: set to the Co irt, they were (with the exception of Meal) e-xcuied, after a re prmand.

Tt* con duct of the officers and crew in this trying eusrg-noy was deceiving of nil ptaise. Not a man fT ached frosa his duty.
