Mayor'b Omcs, \ New Yoke, April 1?, 1864. j The Legislature of thin State having passed an ast en titled " an Act for the Suppression of lattm^aranoe, Pauperism a?d Crime," known m the Prohibitory L' quor Lav, and aa my poaition with reference to ita an torcement in tUs olty, ?o far a* that duty may devolve upon my office, ahouid be declared at an early day, to save no doubt aa to ita character, 1 hereby present lor publiu conaideration the pnneiplea which control my conduct ai a public offloer, alike applicable to mattera of great or small import. That the people govern? not in their primary capacity, but through repr eaentativea freely nnd fairly choeen? b the theory of American government. The people are the aource of political power Tney mike the lawn; and the great safeguard of American liberty is general compliance. Aa the atatutea thus created for the better protection of life and property, and the pursuit of bappineaa, are but the reflation of the popular will for the time being, ao are they Dialing upon the body politic? the minority aa well aa the majority? who are alike parties to the oompact, the obligations of which It la dlahonorable to disregard. And taough theae element* of eelf governmeut preatnt the die tin guiahlng feat urea betweeu our own and the governments of Euiope, atill our aucceaa haa been owing more to ac quieaence in the will of the majority than in the oharac ter of the government itaelf. Other republioa have failed, even when founded upon our forma anl constitu tion, only became of the resistance of the vanquished contestants for rule by rebellion againat the lawa and the executive power appointed to enforce them We understand republicanism allien atly, and hence have no auch struggle*. The generally pervading camtn'in school educational aya',em? the rigi<i principle of obe<ii ence Instilled into th? cbild by the parent, and tbe echo lar by ihetea:her ? tbe enlarged fcuman progress, leading onward to tbe expulsion of tue heart and lntelieot, all founded upon ?n tnligbtened unproscrlptitv co'igoua reutiment, furnish the platloriu upon which American liberty stands, ana from which no calamity save foiciole resiptnnce to the laws can ever remove It. It is not contended that m nontiei liav.e notgrievansea, and that thilr grievance? must remain unredresaed. lheir rights are lolly piotacted The tame fundamental law that binds minorilita to aubmit, points out clearly the road to relief fcgainst an illegal or Improper exer cise of authority upon the part of the majority Even whenever innaiic:*m rules tbe hour an 1 eltlA^a the oountry with ita baneful iuIIukucu, to the exclusion of reasonand justice, publio opinion wili aoon correot the error and restore tbe calm senae of mature corner native judgment. What if tbe law matter proves recreant, and betrays the constituent he was chosen te repreient? The wiong inflicted is not irremediable, though it may be a proper cbaatisemsnt for a negligent or corrupt u*e of tbe franchise Time repairs all the errors of leiralaiioo. ita evils aed wrongs, however irreat, invariably recoil be fore public opinion and the d?olaiona of the courts. Kedre.ss and relief can thar always be obtained. Tne legal tribunals and the ballot box ar* never approached in vain for the maintenance of a goal, or ta-j overthrow of a bad c&uae. Theae are the only constitutional ra sorts? all others are treason and rebe'lion. Another maraud outra iteristic of the American people ia the untveraal submission to tbe governmental forma restricting the poieis and dat es ot the three compo nt-nti of government, viz.: the legislative, the judicial, and tbe executive. The first can only make the laws, tbe second can only expound them, and the third has no dis cretion bat to see them faithfully executed. It is my province tn act as agent for tbe people in one of ihesj department*. 1 am an executive ofll. or. laid In the ex ecution oi the lawa, anl have sworn to doso "to the seat of my ability." Witn n? nart or responsibility in their creauon, so tar as State legislation is concerned, I have no option but compliance as an in?tm<n-wt for their en forcement, and to require a compliance in otnars, a.i far as I have tbe sb lity. it in my duty to exact ooitlienc*, and your* to obey The officer of tue law ia not account able for tbe miking of the law; he is bound to execute it pursuant to his nub of office, though tne rtiponsibtlity of the people, aa the source of all political powsr, c.-.n not be no easily denied, as Mayor. I have endeavored to fulfil this du'y. though toinotime* palaiul, yet it haa been perlormeo diligently and impartially 1 hopa to coi.t>uue without relaxation The act reUting t > the Iircbibilion ot the liquor traffic and consumption ia uowa aw. bv4d ng tbe position aa any other law. and until decided Invalid by the jouita, or amended or re pealed by tbe Legislature, ahould command the aame uhertieme. So far as Its-execution depends upon ma, I have no di.s<*ret.ion but to exercise all my power to en force it. It i?i unnecessary lor rat to rxprees an opinion In regard to legislation of this character, or of this law: not only be<iatiae that opinion has boon here tofore given, but because whatever it may be, I cannot without dlehotnr shrink from a faithful discharge of i The trust confided whatever shall b?' the per onal con se < i in'.n <-ei? to myielf. I now call upon the frien ia of law and nrdertoaidin the performance of this obligation, and in auatain'tig the la#s ? a prioclplo upon wbici rcita tie corner atone of all our national prosperity and great ness. Deeming my course with reference to thi> subject of in terest to rhos? whose oecuoatinna are 'O he affc-'ted, and especially to tboee whose licences will ex aire with the year ending the first of May en.iulng, I have rait It in cumbent upon me to Indicate it frankly. 1 have availtd myself of the first moment after the aljournment of tbe Legislative when all expectations of repeal or mod'.tica tlocs were hopeleea, to thua make puhli j my position, without having had time to examine it, or to receive counsel an to my ilutiea undar it, anl without knowing whether I am called upon or have power aa Mayor to take any part in ita execution. 1 ahall inform mysalf oa tbese points without delay, and announ:e my conclu sion to the public with the aame candor that prompts this communication.

Whtn I called on Captain French, he was informed immediately of the object of my visit, and during the continuance of the conversation I took notes of what be was saying, viUi a view, of course, to its publication. As Captain French fails to specify a single " perversion' * or " misapplication" of his wordn, (except with regard to the word " chucaed," which he certainly used,) hie denial ot the stateaaente contained ia the article will go for what it is worth I certainly could have ao rauoa to report him ua 'airly. Of course, muoh was said to the conversation that was not novated worthy of publi cation. Hereafter, when Captaia French or any other public man I* caHed upon by a reporter avowedly for information, he mnat be careful not to say an/thing to conversation be would not wish to see published ia the paper* The Captain need not be at all alarmed as to tbe difficulties the Hjcbald reporters will have in getting information; they have a peculiar talent- for that kind ; of thing, which the public have long since ascertained, and highly appreciated. Supreme Court? Special Term* Before Hon. Judge Roosevelt. UMIAKKIED WOMEN'S EIGHTS? LIFE IN NEW TOM ? A KAST MaN A KICAIL WOMAN. Ccnkling vs. Margaret Edwardt, ? Rooskvxlt, Jus tice ? This ii a bill filed by an alleged creditor to obtain relief against an alleged fraudulent con veyance made by the debtor to bia alleged wife. The wife, ho colled, irho ii the Hole defendant in the suit, denies that there was any lawful marriage between her and bet apparent husband, and Insists that, ao far iroaa any iraud on her part again at the plaintiff, hia claim waa a traud upon her, contrived between the seeming debtor and bi* seeming creditor, to defeat, if possible, by a simulated debt, the previonsly rested riguta of the de fendant. I'liut "Mrs. Edwards," the cesignation applied t* the delendant, waa an assuioed name, la clearly proved. Her real name was Crow; acd admitting that her first and ouly busband had been absent and unheard of long enough to warrant another union, there is no color for the auppnaition taat an* such union ever took plaoe. Indeed, Edwards, the alleged second husband, dun a? the whole time of the cnnectlon and down to nis death, bad a lawful wile living and undivorce<j. He neither waa, therefore, nor could nave been, nor intended to be, the hutband of the defendant, nor she tiis wife except In name. But although such may be, as it indubitably is, the ac tual truth of the ease, the def anient, it is contended, la enupped 'rom setting it np. 8b e saw lit, it appears, f?r reason s which the character of her business sufficiently explains, to affix to the entrance of her premises a door plate, inscribed with the letters: "Mrs. Ei wards;" and ia the conveyance from Edwards and herself to Shaw, and from Shav immediately back to her, ahe allowed herself to be called "the w fe of Thomas Edwards." But did the plaintiff, if at ull, ever creuil Eu wards on the faith of these appearances? On the contrary, is it not evi dent ? indeed, it is not denied? that he knew the true character of the relation subsisting between his brother in-law and the woman br whom, in effect, that orother ln- law was supported? The very premises which he bow seeks to wrest lrom her, wero openly devoted to the "bu?lne*a" the was known to follow and were the fruits, it would seem, of that business. The defendant, taen. was not the wife of Edwerde, and, as against the plaintiff, is not estopped from saying so. Her earnings, there fore, however disreputably gained, were her own; '.hey certainly did not -.along to tbe man the k<pt. And If they were in truth the means by which the house wae purchased, that house, neither in law norjustioe, can oe claimed by his creditors, whether collusive or bona fide. Tbeeu samings, one of th* witnesses states, averaged froaa filty t) oie bundled dollars per week. Although wan tonly i-Hine'l they were not wantonly squandered. She (net he) kept an account in so less than three different savings banks ? the Bowery, the Seamen's and the Chambers street? all in her own same of Margaret Crots or Mnrgaiei Edwards Her accumulated savings unoer ber of i' individual control. It appears by these accounts, amounted ia November, 1&4B, when the contract lor the purchase of the bouse was made, to about $2,000. Qs the 14th February following she drew out <2.10? 82. Bttwcen that day and trim 'i.'ld, when the purchase waa com pie 'ed and the deed ao<l mortgage recorded, theee was a payir.ent to Rroan. th? vsnror, of between twe ano three tfcou?aod (1 all ?re; which, therefore, could have been and which the weight of evidence shows, as I tbtnk conclusively, must hsve been, made hy 4the delendaat. the had means, DM wards had nci.e; she Hived, he epent. AlfO'igh destitute of woman's highes". virtue, she, if it may be so called, had the virtue ot accumulation; wh-re a- te, a "sporting character," as one of the witnesses des cribes him, was a lover of fast horses and himself a "feet man," the shameless public attache and dependant of a public woman Such a man's means are to be proved, cot presumed He is dead, it is true; but the plaintiff waa his :riend, and intimate, and brother in-law, and must have known bis i esources , if any . If be kept a bank ac count, where was his bank and who was hia banker t If none, wheuce did lie derive bis n^ans, and how did he guard them? Instead of enlighteoing ua on this point, the plaintiff leavss us to grope our way aa beat we can ? un less. as we may, we use a torch Introduced by him for a very different purpose. To show that Edward* was his debtor, be produces two promissory totes and a due bill, amounting together to ahout (5,000. Tneio papers, ex cept the signature, are all in the plaintiff's handwriting. If they speak the truth, (and if they oo not, the plain tiff has d? caose for action,) they ahow that, as early aa May, 1B49, Edwards was indebted en " settlement of accounts " $2 200 ; and that, iuatead of paying, he went on increaaing the burthen by contracting further liabilities in nine months, to an equal additional amount und upwards They prov*, if genuine, that he was ia deM more than 94,000? and, whether genuine or other wise, they do not prove, nor does any other evidence ia the case prove, tbat he had anything to ahow for this indebtedness. On tbe contrary, th? proof, so far as it goes, both positive and negative, direct and presump tive, all tend* to the opposite conclusion. When asked wbpt was given for these notes, the plaintiff stands mute. He might have spoken, not himself I admit, bat through witnesses; and yet be says nothing. The pre sumption is, tbat he preferred darkness rsther than light, because in the former there was a chance of suc cess, while in the latter there wa ? a certainty of defeat. It baa been suggested, rather faintly, however, that Edwards, admitting his other deficiencies, was tbe owsir of the gains of tbe establishment conducted by the so called Mrs. Edwards. Tbey lived together, it is true, la the house, and as man and wife. But shameless as he wae, ba neither churned, nor pretended to claim, tbe eernlngs of her business She received them in her owa name, end in ber own name depoiited and controlled them; and be never disputed ber right to do eo. She sometin.es indeed, paid Ins tailor's bills. But generosity, notjuatlce.it ia obvious, dictated the act. If ahe fed, and clothed, snd lodged him, the gratuity created no obligatisa on ber part to pay h s debts, or to give him her houee. She may have tinned? and sinned often aid deliberately? bnt it does not rest with him, or those claiming through him, to say it? or to throw the first stone, or any stone, upon bis fellow transgressor At all events, they cannot claim her earnings, be their ori gin ever so disreputable. The house, then, slthoadi plaoed in bis name for a few days, merely for tbe pur pose of the mortgage, which ahe afterwards paid, was ia fact bers; and the conveyance of it to Sbaw, aa a mere conduit, and bis immediate conveyance back to ber, waa tbe lolfilment of a lawful obligation, and not the perpe tration of an unlawful fraud. Judgment must, there fore. he entered declaring that tbe convey anoee sought to be impeached by tbe plaintiff, were not 'fraudulent aa againit him, and, as a consequence, tbat his oomplaiat be dismissed with cost*.
