Clark arrived la town an Wednesday afternoon, aad pat np at tha residence of a friend, in fifth avenue, where ha la now etjieg. Ha waa induced to visit the eity on Inritation of tha Commiselonare of Emigration, to visit tha institutions under their charge. Before earning he stipulated that the visit should not be mads public, as ha wished to personally inspect tha public charities without unnecessary parade and ostentation. It noon yesterday, the party, consisting of Governor Clark, Oomsaieeioners Purdy, Kelly, Kennedy aad Cam ming!, Hon. C. C. Leigh, Gon. J. J. Chambers, and Major Thompson, of the Governor's staff, the representatives of the press and others, started from the As tor Hons# at noon in carriages, and proceeded to 106th street, where they took boats for Randall's Ialaad. Hero they ware received by Col. Btearns, the Warden, who conducted them through the grounds, wards, nursery department, he. It ie usual, on occasions of this kind, to fnralsh the guests not only with something to eat, but alao with a certain spiritual consolation mixed with water. This time honored custom, was disregarded in tha present Instance, aad tha water waa furnished without the hqaor. During tha Goveraer's stay the Randall's Island light Infantry, composed of nearly four hundred boys, preceded by drums and flfas, pasaed la review before him. They marched aad countermarched, and per formed a number of extraordinary military maaoeuvree not mentioned by Scott or any other known writer on tactics, which, however, appeared to greatly pleai* thf mselvee, aa it certainly did the lookers on. Ths hoys were then marched in to dinner, and the gueets followed tosee them eat. This performance waa highly satisfac tory aad in tares ting, though, as some of the boys, with a profound disregard of ChsatsTflold'a maxima, at* tempted to eat soup with their fingers, it waa slightly diagnstisg. Ths Girl's Infant School was then vleltod, where the vagrant children sang a song descriptive of the p'eaaures end enjoyments of home, a subject thsy could sing about with propriety, as they knew nothing about it. The Governor seemed greatly pleased, and made a brief speech to the boys and girls, complimenting them on their appearance, and expreasing his satisfaction at what he eaw. A smart shower here came on, which threw cold water for a time on the entertainment?a li quid, by the way, the guests were beginning to have tea mnoh of. After inspecting the newly erected spacious workhouse at the south end of Randall's island, the party proceed ed in boats to Ward's Island, whore a Urge addition was made to the company. Amongst others were, Thur iow Weed, Lieutenant Governor Raymond, Simeon Draper, Commissioners Carrigan and Garrigue. Hero a dinner was ssrved up at the house of the Phy sician, to which some forty persons sat down?Elijah F. Purdy officiating at tha head of the table, Gov. Clark being seated at his right. At first the only liquid to he seen waa water, of whish there was an abandanoe, but presently mysterious looking bottles began to be circu lated at the lower end of the table, containing a dirk colored concoction possessing very much the flavor and appearance of claret wine. Preeently a smothered sound wis beard, that seemed like an unsuccessful attempt at opening a champagne bottle without making a noise. The glasses of the guests were soon filled with a beverage that waa certainly not water, root beer, soda, or any known temporanoe drink. A bottle of wine was sent to the Governor, who, good humoredly, passed it over to the Lieutenant Governor, who had alrealy been supplied with an " original'package" of the time kind. Dinner being over, Mr. Purdy made a brief, speech wel coming his Excells nay, when he complimented him in high terms for bis integrity of pnrpoee and personal good qualities. He concTndtd with a toast, which he drank, as he himself said, for the first time In hie life, with cold water. (Great laughter.) " His Excellency Mj ron H. Clark, Governor of the State of New York '' Governor Clarx thanked the Commissioners for ths welcome they had extended to him, and expressed his gratification at the cleanliness and good order he wit nessed in the institutions. No doubt much of the oleaa-' liness wee due to the recent introduction of Croton water, end he further feared that the neeeesitiea for in ititutions of the kind be had just paased through was duo to another liquid, known as fire-water. (I.eugh ter.) He hoped that a sufficiency of the Croton would te used to destroy the effects of the aforementioned fire-water. (Applause ) He gave In conclusion, "The Commissioners of Emigration, the Ten Governors aad the officers in their institutions " Simon Prapkr was called upon?and remarked that bp waa a small specimen of a Governor (laughter)?but was willing to represent his Doard. Ha hoped that no thing but water would over separate the Board he be. longs to and the Commissioners of Emigration. Commissioner next spoke, and was followed by H. J. Raymond, who spoke in complimentary terms of the institution. Hon C. C. Lsioh responded on behalf of the State Legislature. He made a good temperance speech. He felt prood thet he was a member of the Legislature that bad the morel oourage to pass a prohibitory liquor law. Hla heart bled while passing through the institution that morning at seeing the poor children who had been made orphans and paupers by the Intemperance of their parents. The demon rum had caused the ravage* they had witnessed. He was pleased to hear that the Commissioners bad determined to allow no more liquor to he drank on Ward's Island, and that foal demon would thns be banished from the place. Mr. Leigh was rejoiced at the present prosperity of the noble in stitutions that now dot our waters. Mr. Ptrdt then introduced Thurlow Weed, whom he designated a* a man known throughout the world as a friend of freedom, Ac. Mr. Wm> felt sensibly the compliment just uttered. In view of the prosperity of the institutions around them, he thought it no more than proper to remember those who passed the law organising the departments. He proposed the health of Senator F. F. Backus, of Mcnroe. and Ira Harris, of Albany. Gen. Chamhkrs was called upon, and spoke humorous ly of a Crabb that asver was sown, and a tree that was ever in blossom?the Vio* President of the commission, Captain Orabtrce. He condemned in strong language the spirit that was abroad to impose restrictions on emigration, which he deemed a blessing to tho country. After complimenting the two Boards, ho closed a point ad speech amidst applause. Dr. Cox then spoke, and waa followed by Dr. Cajusoohan, who gave it as his opinion that liquor waa a great evil It had originated several new dis eases, and the most difficult bone* to reset were those of people who were habituated to strong drink. Still, good brsndy had its uses, and the doctor waa not opposed to it medicinally. The health of Commissioner Carrigan was drank at the suggestion Of Thurlow Weed, for his efforts on behalf of the Commissi mors of Emigration, aa was also the health of Julian C. Verplank. The company then rose, and on invitation of Simoon Draper tho partv proceeded to Blsckweil'e Islanl aad went through tho various institutions under charge of the Tan Governors. The Lunatic Asylum, the Work house, the Almshouse, the Penitentiary, and the Syphlla Hospital, were visited, after which the party returned to the city. To-day the Governors will visit Staten Island. We understand His Exoallsncy would not have com* to the city bad be known that any preparations had been mad* for it. Hie purpose waa to inspect the institutions quietly, aa he was satisfied he could learn much more of their character by that means, than by visiting them with a crowd of lazy officials and hang ers on. Commencement of the General Theological Seminary. The annual eommanoement of the General Theologi cal Seminary of thr Protestant Kplaoopal Church took place yesteTday in St. Peter's Church, Twentieth street. There were not moro.thaa two hundred persons prsaent, at tho utmost, aad a large proportion of thee* were ministers. The services commenced at ten o'cloak, Rt. Rev. Dr. Lee, of Iowa; Rt. Rev. Dr. Doam, of New Jer sey; Rt. Rev. Dr. Potter, of New York; and Rt. Rev. Dr. Atkinson, of North Carolina, officiating. The Professors of the institution were also present, and took part in the exercises. Bishop lee, of Iowa, delivered a sermon appropriate to the occasion, taking his text from Jeremiah, Chap. 33, verses 1 aad 2, aa follows:? " Wo be unto the peetors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture, salth tho l ord. " Therefore, thus salth tha lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people, Ye have scattered my flock and driven them awsy, ana have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon yon the evil of your doings, saitb the Lord." The discourse, as tha text would indicate, waa devoted to an exposition of the sacred du ties of the ministry and tha responsibilities whieh de volved upon all pastors. The Bishop dwelt with partic ular emphasis upon the duty incumbent upon the clergy or visiting their flock* and becoming personally acquainted with them By this mean* they would es tablish that close communion which should always exist between the minis try and tha laity, and be better able . to 1.1tend te their spiritual wants, in conclusion he made sosm appropriate remarks to the graduates, after which they received their diplomas from Bishop Bonn*, to whom they were introduced in due form by the Dean.

TBE FUNBBAL OP PHB DECEASED YOUNG PIMA I.E. Tbe funeral of Sarah Williams, one of the victims of the Clermont avenue suicide, took place yeaterday after noon at the Episcopal Church in Adelphi street. The excitement was intense, and long before the appointed hour, which was four o'clock, the street leading to the church was thronged with people, and the ehureh and lecture room adjoining were filled almost to suffocation, hundreds sot being able to obtain even standing room. Tbe crowd In and about the building numbered about 2,6C0 persons. Tbe remains of the deceased were oonveyed to the church from the dead house in a magnificent hearse, drawn by two whit* horses, under the management of the commit teeappoin ted at a meeting ot citizens of the Eleventh ward tne night previous, the committee con sisted of the following gentlemen:?J. G. Hehoon iraker, Esq.. Captain R. W. Call, George Wallace, Al derman Walsh and Gilbert Delavere. The coftin was made of mahogany, highly polished, and lined with whit* satin. On the lid was a massive siver plate, containing the following inscription within a scroll:? <?; y/////// // //a////a/w///a /y/? ?

The ootlin wm carried into the church, and placed in front of the altar by tba pall bearers, consisting of the committee above named. The Ban. R J. Walter, pan tor of the congregation, then performed that part of the funeral services not forbidden in the ritual to persons who come to death by their own bands. Ha delivered an appropriate address, detailing the circumstances of the melancholy event, by which two peraons had bean suddenly cut off, and hurried to the presence of their God. He urged upon the assemblage the virtue of ever rising charity one to another, for no one conld tell what temptation drove them te their untimely end. We mast examine ourselves. Are we not liable to fall? Are our children tenure ? Can they not be allured from the paths of virtue, sad come to an ignominious death ? We are all frail belaga, and know not the honr in whleh we may be tempted. Love la a powerful motive?love for our selves and our fellowmeo. And than can be no doubt that tns victims of thia tragedy entertained far ana ano ther the warmest ties of a Unction. This Is evident from the manner In wbieb they were found wheadoad, and in death leaning upon one another in affectionate embrace. It is our duty to lov# one another, and to love that God who created as, above ell others. Every sentiment op K1 to God ought to M suppressed, for it is idolatry to anytblag man then him. Then, my bnthnn, let us nsist temptation, and pray God to give u* grace to realst everything that does not come from him A few years at most win flniah our trials and troubles on earth. Than let us run with pa tlence the race that is aat before us, and heaven win recompense us for all. After tba services, the ooffin was removed to th* side walk in front of tho ehunh, where the assembled mul titude was permitted' te look nt the corpse by marching around it in single file. After this ceremony was concluded, the funeral pro ceeded to tho Cemetery of tho Evergreens, when the remain* were interred in a lot appropriated for tho pur pose by ex mayor Strykor. Tho procaesion numbered about twenty Ave carriages, volanteerod by tho citizens. Tba funeral of the deceased young man Horatio N.

An adjourned meeting of the stockholders of the Pa cific Mail Steamship Company was hald yesterday af ternoon nt one o'clock, in the sales room of Messrs. Gerard A Bette, 108 Wall street. At the opening of the madfcag there were present about' seventy-five gentlemen, among whom were Mr. Griaaell, Mr. Aspia wsll, Mr. Dehen, and others distinguished In mercan tile circles. The meeting was called to order by calling Mr. Geo. Bluat to the chair, and Mr. W. H. Davids officiated as secretary. The objsct of the meeting was to decide upon some plan of operations which would harmonise the interests ef the company. After the formality of opsniag the meeting, Mr. Abijah Mann came rorward and offered the following resolutions Resolved, That Edward .Whitahouaa, Theodore Dehon, Adam Nonia, Jos. Galllard, Jr., sad Watts Sherman, are hereby appointed a committee to make axrengementa for the issue and sale of a series of bonds of th* company, with suitable provision for a sinking fund, amounting to five hundred thousand dollars-, and that the President and directors are hereby requested to apply tba proceeds of said bonds to the payment of the floating debt of the company, and of the balance now dm Howland A Aspinwall. and to dispense with the commercial agency; and that the President and Board of Directors be, and hire by are, requested to make auch appointments as they may deem neceaaary for the trans nction, by the officers and clerks of the company, of all commsiolal business connected therewith. Resolved, That the salaries of the officers and clerks needed for the transaction of tha bmiueis of the company, under the nar organ zation, be recommended by the saw committee lor adoption by the President and Board of Director*. Resolved, That tha President ana Board of Directors be requested to continue their efforts to dispose of auob portion of the property as in their opinion can ha ad vantageously dispensed with, payable in cash or notes, if at private sale, and on such terms as they may deem most for the interest of th* stockholders; or if by public auction, payabla in the stock or bonda of the company. Resolved, That tbe President and Board of Directors be requested to apply for a modification of tha charter, so as to authorize an increase of the number of directors to nine, and a subdivision of tbo stock into certificates of $100 each, and for such other modifications aa they deem necessary. Resolved, That the President and Board of Directors be requested to continue their efforts to bring about an arracgemsnt with the Mioaragua Com piny on term* whleh sbalJ be fair and liberal, and equally advanta geous to the stockholder* of both companies. Resolved, That the president and Directors be re quested to confer with the above commutes as t* the readzation of tha Benicla Wcrka, and as to tbe other property r* I erred to ia tbe report. In support of these resolutions Mr. Mann made a short speech, saying thsy were drawn up and presented with th* view end hope of answering the wants of all par ties connected with the company. Mr. Dxnox followed Mr. Mann, reiterating with that gentleman the desire (or harmonious action, and stated that ha was willing to go as iar aa any man ia promoting this object. Following these gentlemen were others, who made speeches to the Hime effect. Upon taking the vote upon the resolutions a call was made for a vote upon each resolution separately. Upon putting tha question to iba meeting, it was redded that tbe resolutions mould be voted for in tbe whole. Tbe above resolutions were then put to the meeting, and unanimoualy adopted. Mr. Gbi.nnkll then accepted tbe following as a substi tute for one be bad offered:? Resolved, That alter tbe adoption of tba resolutions this day unanimoualy passed by this meeting, it is not dermen expedient to adopt the further reoommendationa c ntalnrd In the first report presented at tba last meet ing. Upon this resolution Mr. Aspixwall spoke as fol lows The pamphlet ia most objectionable to practical minds, because it indulges in vague insinuations, and not spe cific complaints, and general criticisms, without provi ding remedies. It refers to the absence, at one time, of three directors, without informing jon that all had in charge the business of the company, and two were on the line of its operations. It refers to commissions over charged by Rowland k Aspinwall, without specifying to them to what extent, and it promises a saving by aban doning the commercial agency, beyond the considerable amount which snob a course will save, and without In torming yen that the agency of Meesrs. Howland k Aa pinwall was authorized by yon when you subecrlbed your etock, and that tta relinquishment by them la wholly optional. The "substantial accuracy" of my report to yon in acknowledged?but after moat searching labors your committee fall back upon general Intimations and falla cious theories, from which yon may draw unfavorable inferences We (eel that yon cannot do so when yon find that two hypotheses, equally fictitious, are assumed?viz.: that it has been the desire of yonr directors to aeoumnlate property, and that they are responsible for the low rates of fare No foundation Is offered for either insinuation, simply because none could be found. I have no wish to go into details. It is sufficient for me to challenge ibr one to produce from this pamohlet facta or figures which stamp the policy of the past two years with a disposition to accumulate property. No pro perty has teen pu ichased, except to meet indispensable wants and to render Investments productive, either by improving property or by temoving obstacles fatal to productiveness. In steamships, the large Investment of May, 1863, has been reduced by the sale of two eteamers and the loss of two. Our efforta have been unremitting to limit by further sales the inveetment to our aotual wants, bat as yet without success I did hope that the wisdom of your committee would have suggested a mode of dlepos ng of some of these we could well apare. Ot the four teen etesmers in the Pacific, bnt seven and a tug were tent there willingly. The balance were purchased to prevent their being used against ns, and for no other object. Almost one fifth of the investment resulted from the arrangement with Davis, Brooks k Co., and that was made to prevent thrice the toonage we then purchased in the Pacific being thrust Into the busi new. Had Meesrs. Davis, Brooks k Co. placed there the tonnage contemplated, the passengers would have been divided between three or four lines, and with a chance of dividends to none. Bankruptcy for some must have followed. At preaent we have hot two steamers of the five purchased from them. The eteam ers, In plain language, have cost you 3867,OfiO less than tbey cost tbs former company, from which you bought them. The investment in hulks, etoreshtps, Ac., was by transfers from Davis, Brooks & Co. Increased about thirty-six per cent, after the disallowance by arbi trators of UOtois amounting to one half our investment at the time Had their claims prevailed?aad not their right*? this investment would be half ae large again. The inveetment in coals must always be large. Pru dence cells for six months' supply at each of three He pots, aad this makes an aggregate of near 1,700 tons. Our choice is between keeping six months' stock on hand, and trusting to chance and a fluctuating market; and although on a recent visit to California a commer cial d?preseton enabled me to purchase 6,000 tons at a little ov*t half coat, universal experience condemns the policy oi trusting to purchases on the spot Thsre ia now on hand about eight month*' supply, Including purchase*, and excluding coals in transitu?and not twelve months, ae statel In the report. In 1863 our etock was ltrgf?partly because we fell heir to an ia vestmant In coals by Davie, Brooks k Co., of noar $3*0,000. I believe that it would bo wis* for the company to dis pose of tbeir establishment at Benicia. whenever are can do ro?and I have so Informed yon?bnt whilst we retain it, we should make it as productive 6f revenue a* pessibt*. The soundest prudence dictates that we should keep down ontlay* for reptlra by profit on cut side woTk. The permanent investsent hore of 371,000 referred to. constats of the wharf and minor Improve ments, indispensable to the permanent efficiency of the works, and adding greatly 1o their market value We owe In a great measure to such efficiency, Job work, now partly finished there, to the extent of over 360.000. Our steamers ere repaired there at an average of ex pense less than is usnal In New York; end these repairs at aay other foundry in California would eoet doable, as we would have to pay costs and profits besides. Our supply of stores ia limited to actual necessaries? not obtainable at fair prices, if at all, la the Pacific, ae wantsd?which must be shipped from New Yerk some months in anticipation of the wants ia the Pacific A theory may be true or falae, aad however yon bol ster false theorise by statistics,practice will stamp their true veins, end experience and wisdom both teach as that fair remunerating ratee of passage are the best. To exceed thane excites competitien, aad to go below them Is productive of lost. Our large receipt* In 1840 led to opposition, and our largf receipts in 1863 lad to the formation by Davis, Brooks 4t*Oe., of the New York end California tine, disastrous in its brief existence, as maayef yon can hear witness, to aay nothing of it* subsequent results on yonr returns. It needs not pages ?f to peer* that a given n**bo*?f paenenien at bUh ikIm pay a lu|*r im at mm; Um the Mm* number at low i?tN. Bat It U pwerile to oooort that yon horo loot a Urge anout of money booaiuo your directors did not obtain blp ratoo ta spite at oircusa ?taneoo which thoy could not control. I need not inform iatelligen t a took holder* that ther* la another company wkteh ha* reguUted this matter ?that they mutt bo willinc to make fair and equitable terms, and to adhere to contracts. We made a eon tract with that company for twelve men the, and as a bonus assented to unfair terms for three months, by agreeing to divide gross reoei^te for those three months in ordtr to have fair and uniform rates for the remain ing nine months. Wo paid over a large sum of money; but no sooner was that done than measures were taken bv them to set aside the oootraot on grounds which no disinterested party would proaoonoe justifiable. An effort was then begun, and baa been continued by them to this time, to get paaeeugert by lower rates; but they have failed to get the majority. An attempt was made to renew naffStia tions. The Nicaragua company claimed one half of the ess receipts of the two composite for themselves, and t we should pay for the maintenance of all carried by us. This was not an equitable arrange meat, and under tt the interest of that company would toad to crowd us with passengers, whoso expenses we would pay, whilst one half of our receipts woukl^go^t? them. It has been the earnest effort of your directors to maintain fair rates, and to bargain for them oven after previous bargains were set a sloe by the other eompoay; out it is folly to submit to unjust extortions when your route and your steamers enable you to demand fair terms. Unless we stand firm on this ground, tre will never obtain dividends. Since the faculties of transit were secured by the opening of the Panama Railroad, afforded e- ~ every steamer baa afforded evidenee of your ability to obtain the majority of passengers, and at prieee above tbeee charged by the other line. The last steamer from Sen Francisco brought seven hundred and thirty passengers?far exceeding the number by tneir steamer?with our prices ranging from 910 to 926 above theirs ; and wo have made paying trips since the balance sheet present ed to you, notwithstanding the Nicaragua oompany have at time* taken paseengers to San Francisco as low as 960 each. We do not despair of obtaining an equit able arrangement, but we do not think it possible to suc ceed if unauthorised publications be made by e party of our own stockholder*, and we betray an Imaginary weakness by undervaluing our own strength, and by concessions unwarranted by equity or by circum stances. It is svidont that a feeling exists among some of our stockholders that there is a want of liberal oo operation en the put of the Panama Railroad Company. We deem it just to say, that whilst, owing to their charter, they can make no concessions to us which thsy do not apply te all using their road?and thsy have, consequently, declined, as yet, to reduce the rate of passage below 926 on your passtngers, crossing twice a month, Inasmuch a* aucb reduction would apply to all the travel of the road?they have decreased charges for baggage, and otbeswixe promoted the procuring of passengers to an equivalent, we think, of at least 915 on each passenger ?the 926 now paid being about half the costof the tran sit of the Isthmus to the passenger in times of former opposition, and certainly with increased despatch and comfort. In conclusion, I will only say to you that ther* is no pertinent matter in the pamphlet which has not pre ?iously engaged the consideration of your directors. Theie are many subject* which from reward fer your Interests they would not make publlo. They have deemed it proper to plaoe on the records of the company the following resolution:? Whereas, a pamphlet entitled "Reports of Committees of Stockholders of the Pacific Mail steamship Company" having been published by aueh committees without the approval of sncb stookholdsrs, be It Reiolved, That the contents of the same thus made public, are deemed by this Board injurious to the inte rests of the stockholders and subversive of the Influenoe which should properly be exercised by their Board of Dlreotors. It is impossible for a body of stockholders holding occasional meetings to judge as well as those who have been elected from tbeir.' number to attend dally to tbeir interests during the year, of tbs gross Impropriety of publishing to tb* world without your oonsent state business ments calculated to paralyse your business. Common courtesy and a reliance on the force of those statements would alike have dictated the propriety of first submit ting them to you and obtaining your approval. We deem it a duty before you to disavow auy agency of your directors in spreading before the public a pam phlet not sanctioned by you and calculated to produoe lals? impressions and results injurious te yonr interests. Upon this resolution other suggestion* were offered let and against, and the debate ended with carry ing the motion o( Mr. Grinnell unanimously. It wss then moved that the second.ranora j-r at tbe last meeting, be rei*--?" bv lir Dehon and - committee of live, ssid committee having teen .. ..pointed * former meeting of the (took hoi dare to arbitrate between the Paelftc Hell Steamship Company and tbe Nicaragua Company. Tnie report went into a full aesount of tb* affair* of the company, end indulged in some strictures upon the President and eimlon, and hence its unpopularity. Mr. Wbitxhocsk defended the report. He thought it was discourteous to reject the reports which had been presented and ride rongh shod over the interest* of the minority. Mr. Pkhon also supported tbe report. Other* following in the debate siigsrested that the whole diaeusaion be postponed indefinitely, aa It waa likely to laad to a rapture which woald be regret ted. All had gone on amoothly ao far, and unity should be preserved. Mr. Manx, in a abort speech, thought the action upon this report could effect no good, but it might lay the foundation of a griaroua controversy. The rote waa Anally taken viva voce, and tha report xejeeted by a large majority. Tha following reaolutlona were then offered:? Resolved. That our conOdence in the offloers and di rector* of ibe Pacific Mail dteamahip Oqpapany la unim p&lrad, and that thay have our fullest confidence that their exertions hare been, and will be used for the ad vancement of the interest* of the stockholder*. Beaolred, That tha communication of tha Preaidant to the stockholders, and the proceedings of this matting, be published and aent to the stockholders. lbs abore resolutions were unanimonily adopted without debate. Mr WuiTKHOUBB?Mr. President, I bare been compli mented to-day by baring my name on a committee seta Wished by resolutions which we hare patted to-day. As I don't belieee I can be of any serrice to the stockhold exs, acting upon that committee, I wish to withdraw my sane. Sir. Norrik?I am also upon the same committee, and decline serring. Mr. Osillshd, Jun?Mr. President, I shall also de cline serring upon that committee. Mr. Dinoii-Mr. President, I am also one of that com mittee established by the resolution just passed to day, and I also shall withdraw my nam*. And here, Mr. President, 1 wish to say that we four or five gentlemen here represent four or Ars hundred thousand dollars in this concern, and we may be feit. I am no lawyer, but I do know that there Is such a thing aa liquidation and partition, but I do hope we shall not be driven to that. We bare acted towards oar opponents with liberality. For tha purpose of harmony, wa roted for the resolutions which they brought in here to day. These resolutions were passed unanimously. How hare thsy acted in return? They hare rejected oar report. Tbey hare roted down resolutions that I hare offered. It te easy to understand this course of action. I hope we shall not ha drlren to extremities. Mr. Grixoti-l ? Mr. President: I rise her* to say a few words in answer to the gentleman who haa just sat down. If tha gentleman insinuates that there is any collusion her* between me and any one els* to oppose him. I throw beok the insinuation with indignatioa in bis teeth. I came here ignorant 01 what the affairs of the company were, till 1 read your own report, air. (pointing to Mr. Dehon,) and my action has been shaped by that. What does tne gentleman mean by partition and liquidation)' Does ha mean to come her* to threat en? 1 nope 1 misunderstood the gentleman. Here the cries of " order," " order," put an end to the debate. It was moved that the vacancies in the oommtttee, caused by tba resignations of Messrs Whitshouse, De hon, GaiUaid and Norrle. be filled by tha Directors. Mr. ARHRWaLL, on bebalf of tbe Directors?Gentle men, I would ask that the stockholders fill these vacan cies. Mr. Whitihocsi.?I move wo adjourn.

Doubtless th* recent *ncoe*se* in the 8u of Arc IT and on the Ctreassian coast told la favor of the government. The meant speech** in Parliament dis tinctly point at the necessity of army reform, and they have given an impotua to the administrative reform movement. A monster meeting wna held in Druy Lena theatre, on Wednesday evening, by the Administrative Reform Association, which was attended by a luge sprinkling of M. P. 'a. Istynrd was the hero of the nightr and abused as usual everything and everybody connot ed with th* government. He take* the head o(J the movement. He hit Palmerston very hard, and is evident, ly etUl very sore et th* mauling he got not long eisoa is Parliament. Some of his observations were cute enough ?(or instance, he said that: " He had neen told he had made a great mistake in the terms of the motion which he was about to bring before the Hons* of Commons, and that, instead of having said 'The Hofeae views with damp conoern the state of the nation,' he ought to have said ' The nation views with deep oonoern the atate of thn Hon**.'" if he wee not so violent and so personal he might assume a position *a e reformer, which if he doe* net show more tact, and tact is a better quality thaagenian accompanied by e violence In a statesman, it wiU dip trough his Ingors. It is, however, clear that th* abases of onr English administration, if clique influence nut jobbing have come to a head, will be remedied soma way or other. To-night Layard get* on hie In theHeuseef Commons, to bring forward the following motion:? That this House views with deep and increasing oon oern the state of the netion, end is of opinion that the manner in which merit and efficiency hare been sacri ficed, in public appointments, to party and family ia iluenees, and to a blind adherens* to routine, ha* given rise to great misfortunes, and threatens to bring discre dit upon the national character end to involve thn country in grev* disasters. Bulwer, the author, has announced tt* following amendment to the above:? That this House recommenl* to the earliest attention of ber Majesty's Ministers the necessity of a careful re vision of onr various official establishments, with a view to simplify and facilitate the traaaactien of pnblio busi ness, and, by instituting judicious testa of merit, an well a* by removing obstructions to its fair promotion and legitimate rewards, to secure to the service ot the State the largest available proportion of the energy end intelligence (or which the people of this oountry arn distinguished. * Both the original motion and the amenment are reform ones.

It Ilea about forty-six mile# acroae the aea from Kertoh, fifteen milea aouth of tho mouth of the river Kuban, and twenty-five mliea to the northeaet of Boudjak Kaieh.

This expedition consisted ef eight ships of the line, four frigates, and tweatyoaa corvettes and other ships, carrviog about 7,000 troops? an effectual demonstration of tho naval preponderance of Russia in the B'ack Sea. The place waa invested, though it waa vigorously defended, not only by tha Turkish gar rison, but by the Circassian and Tartar cavalry of Ihn Slnina of the Kaban, and after a siege of thirty-twn ays It surrendered te Prince Menscblkoff.
