Notwithstanding the stringent provisions of the liw of 1818 against the fitting ont of slavers In the United BUtes, it la well known that a Urge number ofreeaela annually leave this port to oruiae on the coast or Africa, where negroes are bought and taken to Cuba or the Bra zil*, and sold for sUres. The United 8Utes officials, at this port, have frequently seized such vessels; bat owing to the difficulty of convicting the parties, and the means takan to escape detection, no result has ever besn arrived at, and the traffic still continues with unabated rigor. Early on Sunday morning last information reached the United States District Attorney that a schooner, lying at the foot or Fourteenth street, was fitting out as a slaver, to sail on the coast or Afrioa, whereupon De puty Marshals De Angelos and Neyins were deputised to ? etch her, and make a seizure, did any suaplclou* cir cunutanoe transpire to warrant then in doing so. On Monday evening the mysterious Teasel hauled out in the stream, and drifted up with the tile to Astoria, and there anchored. There she was joined by another schooner, towed by the steam tug Ajax, from which Urge quantities of (tores were taken and placed ou board the Falmouth. This was about dusk in the evening. *Ihe secreey attending all the movements of the vessel and those ou board led the officers tu suspect all was not right; and en receipt of the intelligence that she would probably sail daring the night, they pjsted back to tue city In gieat haste, where they arrived late in the even ing. They called at the house of Mr. Joachimsaen, the oeputy District Attorney, but found that officer had gone Vu Laura Keene's Varieties, to witness toe new play, so ibey started for the theatre and notified air. Joaohlmssen, wl>o immediately sent word to Mr. McKeon, the District Attorney, who was at the dinner of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, at the Metropolitan Hotel. Mr. MtKeon authorised the offisers to hire a eteamtag und peize the suspected vessel oefore state left the harbor, and at the same lime sent word to the Navy Yard, Brooklyn, for a file of matinee to aid ttie officers. Thus Instructed, the Marshals hired tue steajatug Only Son, and with twelve matlnes, uuder command of Captain i Watson, went down the bay to head off the Falmouth. All this wab done after midnight. Meanwhile the mysterious schooner drop pel slowly iown the river un'il .she came to Sixty first street, where over fifty hogsheads of water were taken on beard, when Bhe continued her voyage, aided by the steamtog Ajax. Morning had broke before the Falmoath reached the Narrows, and In another hour ahe would have been out of all danger of capture, but U'-e had decieed other vipf. The Only Son ran alongside the vessei, and, be fore the astonished orew knew what they weie about, twelve marines precipitated themselves on the deck. Three of the men rushed for the cabin, apparently with a view to destroy some papers that might lead to detec tion, but the officer* were too quick for theoa, and sprang to the doorway, telling no on# to enter under peril of toeir lives. The steamtog Ajax would not oome to when ordered, and one of the marines seized an axe and cot the hawser that bound ber to the Falmouth, when she steamed up and made way for the city with all possible speed, wish out an inquiry from on board as to the cause of the stop page. The schooner was then towed up to the Navy Yard, vtore she waa ?lac*d under charge of Lieutenant dkZ u>. . v. ' ? Yesterday, al noon, iwrtnct Attorney MoKeou and his Ilepu'y, Mr. Joaohlmssen, vial led the captured vessel for the purpose of inspecting her and the crew, twelve in number, all of whom were placed in arrest. They found the Falmouth to be a '? long, low, bUck " craft of about 260 tons burthen, with raking masts, and altogether a very piratical looking concern in appearance whatever she maybe in reality. On her stern is painted the words "Falmouth, Balti more," and the American eagle adorns her prow The ve.-eel was open under deck from the cabin to stem, and boards were found to erect, It is supposed, a Slav ? deck, that would hold, as ene of the officers remarked, "about ttOO niggers." The search of the vessel itveilel many cuiious circumstances. On deck was found a large medi cine chest, with castor oil, lint and crugs, evidently In tended for a larger company than those on board ship, In whicn there were only thirteen persons. Between decks were over fifty hhds. of water, large e tores of rise, reaus, faiina and preeerved meats, such as are usad by slavers. Large copper pots and pans for boiling Urge masees of food at a time, with ladles and spoons to match, and many other questionable appurtenanoes. About tns deck was a numoer cf extra spars. In the cabin were found charts of the west coast of Africa, and a Urge quantity of bunting to make American flags. But if these circumstances spoke for themselves the crew on board were not so communicative, but were a* silent and as non-committal as the members of the Know Nothiig fraternity are said to be. None of them knew how they bad got aboard? who had shipped them ? where they were going to ? what the captain or owners' names were. All on board the vessel were Portuguese and either did not er pretended not to understand a word of English. The captain was a myth. No one on board acknowledged ths title, or could tell who that funetlonary was. Three of the men said they ware pas senger*, but could not tell who they paid their money to. or where the ship was going, though one or them, who we* suspected of being captain, bttrayed an acourate knowledge of St Paul de Loando and AogoU, both noted reports for eUvers. " Well, gentlemen," said Mr. MoKeon, addreeUng Mar shall! De Angelos and Nertns, " yon have a fine prize here. According to the law those who seize a slaver, or a vessel without an owner, are entitled te he't tW sel nd cargo. This schooner appears to Lari at) 1 ownei." "Let ttJ try if that Is so," responded one of the officers. Accordingly, every men on Uard the vessel were called up, but all in turn denied owning the suspected pro perty, and the most rigid cross-examination failed to eliolt any light oa the subject. The following named persons were placed under arreet, and o derei to be taken to Kings oounty Jail, there to await the further action of the District Attorney Passengers? Jose Lopes, Gasper Marrech, Joseph An toine. Seamen ? Manuel Fortunato, Antoiue Q< mez, Juan Grazzta, Albert Rose, Antolne Jose, Manuel Oomes, Em mauusl Jose, Emmanuel Robert, Jo*4 Azardo, A number of circumstances, whioh It would be im proper to mention here, throw considerable suspicion oa the Portuguese Consul, Senor C. B. 8. De U FJganiere. It re* ma he was la communication with several persons on board, and kne w of their whereabouts. The affair, however, is to be furthsr investigated. Tne vaeeel mow lies at the Navy Yard, under the charge o( tne Depa-y Marshal. It will be thoroughly searched this morning, and an inventory of all the goods taken. Jcrtcjr City New*.

THI STAND AID OF MORALI TY FOB SHOWMEN A FBO OB TWO HQHER Til AN THAT FOUND IN THE ATMOSPHERE OF WALL STREET. March 18.? The defendant wu further examined thJU morning. Q. Do you hold a note against John Taylor, of Albany for a large amount)' A. I loaned John Taylor and others $20,000 in July 1861, for which loan 1 took John T*yIor and other* jointly, and several notes payable in five years from that date; that note is noir held by the Peqaonnook Bank, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, as oollsieral security for my debts, and for eleek debts for about that amount. Q. Did that note bear interest on its ho* at 7 per oent? A. It doe*. Q. Have you received tlie amount of interest on tba i ote? A. They gave me semi-annually a note for $700. with interest, payable when the large note matures in July i860; these interest notes, amounting to $0,300, I ex cnaaged for a mortgage, which mortgage I assigned to ??Mcuie the clock debts; I assigned it to a bank to which the clock company weie Indebted. Q. Are all the mortgages on your property bona fide 'or value received. A. fney are bona fidt ana for real ?l?bts; 1 never gave any others. Q Have you not a number of business notes of different parties that you received from the Jerome Company? A. i did have, but they are all transferred and passed oat of thy jiosfeihion to ascure debts. At this stage of the proceedings the case was adjourned to the office of Mr. J. W. Gerard, Jr., the deiendant'a o? impel, where it was resumed. Q. Din the Jerome Company assign you the leare of the store recently occupied by them in Broadway? A. Ihey aid, which I have aesgned to seoui e debts? my personal debts? oue and owing by me lor more than the oontide jatl</ti of the assignment Q. Have they put you in possession of any clock* or ool.aUial security for yiur obligations incurred in their behalf',- A. 1'h' T put me in pjtineasion of a n>ut $2,000 ?vortli if oloeks, and I attached abo>u $700 worth more which they gave up to me. Q. What ban become of these clocks? A. I h?.ve sold a portion ot them ? more than half? and assignel the balance to sec ore debts tor more than the consideration of the assignment. Q. What became cf the proceeds of the portion sold? A. I appropriated the same tor the payment of debts. <4 Have you a mortgage for $4 oOO against a Mr. , Hamilton, formerly of Bridgeport, now of Chi:agj' A. I ii?ver had a mortgsgo of $4,000 against him; out 1 nad one ot $'2,0(0, and assigned it in January last to secure lebts; it was more tn*n the consideration. Q. Where is S. d. Jerome? A. He sailed for Liverpool In the 1'ersia. on her passage from this port. Q. When will he return? A. He eald he should return in six y days. Q. Have you a olaim against the Jeromei for fraud in their trssskcuonf with you? A. I don't like to charge any man with fraud; 1 consider It more caailt*#!* to oeiieve tuat they were contused or half crazed Oy the great multiplicity of their transacloas, for they had storm in Xvew York, Philadelphia, Boston, and In Ecgland, and manufastured one or two million dollars won h per annum, but there stands out the great fact that In June last they stated to me In writing, (which rtatemen> is now in my possession ,) that they were toen woita $187,000; this statement, h wever. was made from obelr previous Janiary annual statement; wq dress, wi<hin seven months from that time, ihey have proved to be bankrupt for several hundred thousand dollars, and ye: they oo not claim to have sastalaet any material loss fcisof they made me that statement; I think the charge of fraud lies more properly at the door of certain of their creditors tnan themselves, tor th>M>e same oredltors, in June last, and siooe, induced me by written and verbal statements to that effect, to believe that the company was wealthy, and in the language of one of the letters re ceived from a o ashler ot a Mew H?ven Bank, that they were receiving as much acjommoria'ion as they ready deserved ; by thus inveigling me into this transaction with the Jeromes, these creditors have secured a larg? por tion of their debts by transferring said deals from their tOK'Wkero on to mine; tneweaithy maa, who had t>?*a ,j. ."Quae's bof.4* w vavietu banks aufcaad la^il largely for the Jeremes, as they were VAl?abie customers of his, continued up till late in DBeembBr last to Btture me that they were perfectly responsible; by these repre sentations I *aa inclined to assume the bonds and many of the obligations that he was in tor th? Jeromes; he was ' ne of the men who advised me, in December last, to borrow $100 000 to lend to the Jeromes; I think, there fore, that the charge of fraud more properly belongs to i hem than to the Jeromes, who were their mere tools or catspaws; still I did endorse paper tor the Jeromes, sup poucg it was for renewals. % You ssy you have no money? how could you h?ve raised the $I0(> 000 which you offered to compromise with hs dock creditors? A. 1 could have reserved much of .he mcney wuich I have since paid to private creditors, and I couM have raised money on my property in Con cecticut which will now be sacnficeu under assignees' ?ale for three or four hundred thouK*n1 dollars less thin 1 could have realized It I had the disposition of the pro perty. Q. Who owns that portion of the Museum which con tains the theatrical room? A. I believe it oolong* to a Mr. Mortis, who lives at Yonkers, and who leased it to Mi Get in, and Mr. Genin leased it to me; both leases will expire in one year from next May. Q. Do you own a copper mine in Connecticut? A. I <ild own one and after losing about $10,000 in working it, I sold it out for about $2,000 in Deoember or January last. Q. Are you interested in any circus company in the United States or elsewhere? A. I am not. Q. Give me a detailed statement in wiitlngof all mo ney e and bords you have held sinoe June last and where ano how you have used them ? A. I am the poorest kind <>f a business man, but my late bookkeeper is now pre l>ariijjr a statement wh'ch shall be furnished you within twenty -tour bours, giving you every item to a dollar; you will find that I have no desire to keep anything back, lor I ?ish you o understand that the standard of morality for sh wn.en <s a peg or two higher than that found in the atmosphere ef Wall street. (Laughter.) Q. How mueh do you owe 'ne Nassau Bank, and what amount of the Pequonnook Bsnk stook do tieyholdas collateral? A. 1 owe the baak $18,566; I believe that to be the amouit, and they ho'd $12,600 of the I'equonnoek at ck and a mirgtge on real estate in Connecticut to c< ver any deficiency. Q. What is the present value of the stoek ot the Pe quaonoek Bank ? A. I don't know what it would bring at ferieo tale, but It is worth on the books of the bank trom $106 to $112 per share; the bank has never lost a dollar by me or the Jerome Company. Q. You say you have paid and secured over $80,000 of the Jerome Clock Company's debts ? why did you pay or secure that amount ? A. In some Instances in order to remove attachments from my property, and in other in etances because the parties holding Jerome paper held my collaterals tor any iudehtednosj which they might have agalnft me Adjourned to Wednesday morning.

Mr. Brook* called for the a yea and noes, and every vote was cant again at the Doctor. The majority in the district was sixty-two vote*. The other case, that o Barr vh. tickles, will be reported in a day or tivo, when a similar verdict will be rendered, namely, a vote in favor of retaining fickle' ? all which was confidently predicted week* ago. The purchase of the Albany Exprest by the State offi cer* has been consummated, papers s'gnad, and money paid. Four of the patriotic State oflicers? Messrs Head Ivy, Cushiug, Stephen Clark and Burrows, with James Klod, of this ci-j have given their notes at short date ftr 18,000 to the propiletors, the M?ssrv.

Mr. Ferdon proposed that every citlztn or the a^e of twenty-one years, who can retd and write, and who shall have been a citizen for ten days and au inhabitant of the State one year, should be entitled to vote. The discussion of these propositions occupied the gi eater part of the session to-day.

OCR AliBANT CORBKrlPONDHNCK. Albany, March 18, 1868. The City T?x bill before the oommlttee of the House Is about ready to be reported. The efforts to reduce tl ? amount have proved successful la many respects. bare taken some pains in preparing a synapsis of Mr. Fiagg's testimony before the committee. Sufficient, however, 1s given to present our readers a bird's eye view of the expenses which ere actually incurred, and for the payment of which the present tax bill U being overhauled, eaaotleed, and, is many Instances, reduce! fioiu the estimates. Azarlah C. Plsfc'g, Comptroller of the city of New York, appeared before the Committee on the Incorporation of Cities and Villages, and was examined nnder oath In re terenoe to the various items in the New York Tax bill, now under the consideration of the committee. Tit items will be given in their order, together with Mr. I'laig'a expositions and sugges .tons: ? AI.MBH0C8K? $926,000. In my judgment it will be Decenary to ralRe, for the purposes of the Alnmhouse. this amount in full. 1 exa mined the estimates in detail In the fall of 1864, as one of Hie con>mii>8loner? under Uie 16tb nectlon of thu cliarterof 1853. We recommended , then, to striae out ite ns amount ing to betw.en $150,000 and $176,000 t). How much, in your judgment, would fairly and suf ficiently satisfy 'he wants of the poor this year la the city of New York? A. I should not like to say. y. Do you not think that tflOO.OOO would meet all the real wants ot the poor (or 1R6W A. A system oi economy might be matured which wouid reduce it to thtt sum. Ibe mure feeding does not , perhaps, take mere than thit. Rut the Ten Governors have chwjre of all the city pri sodp, except the county jail. With the present arrange ments lor ihe coming year, they would require the pre sent appropriation. In the fail of 1864, when the Ten Governors called on the Common Council for an appropriation of $600,000, I advanced, under atresolutijn of the Comnon Cjunoll $125,000, in anticipation of the appropriation to be made in 1865. Q. Did yon expect to reimburse the treasury out of that? A. I ild. Thees imate of $817,600 contained in the ordiaance, on ptge 36 ?.f my communication to the Common Council of November 30 1865, is not my esti mate, but the estimate of the Ten Governors. AQtrELvrr Ra'AiVH and nuwrsMMxn ? $36,000. This la a fair estimate. BLASTING DIAMOND RXKF? $36 600. I left this out of mj estimate for the year 1856. It was put in by the Board of Couacilmen. fhey pretend that lc is already under con tract, but I do not believe It is a valid contract, and I think it ought to oe legally tested. Ihe shaping ot the renolution was, to see wbat the work wuula cost without reference to its being thea a contract. I insisted that there should be a scieutiS j examination and Hurvey. But the man who made the survey, was in my judgment not at all competent for that business. He wsh a land surveyor. Diamond Keef is halfway ???t ween the Battery and (Jover nir's liltnd. My opinion it, that Uie Common Council onght not to go out Into the uutunel t> make improvements. They ought first to go to the Leglsla tuieand get a lsw authorizing this to be done. I <5* not regard it as a proper expense for tne city of NewYork for the current year. 1 oid not consider that there w*< au thority for It, 9i that it wta necessary. BOARD or USAI.TH ? $4O,000. Jhe ordinary appropriation has been $10,000, but last year only $4,500 we*e spent. The City Inspector was authorized, by a resolution of the Common Council, to make a temporary arrangement (or removing toe dead animals, offal, ho He accordingly made an arrange nynt with Mr. Reynolds for doing t ie work tor $4,600 a month. Toe Finai.ce Committee put that In in ordnr to meet the claim. In 1860 a contract was mtde to pay a ?um equal to $65 000 to Mr. Reynolds. In 1863 I refuted to pay the entire amount, on toe ground that it was an invalid contract. The matter was contested about two years. In 1856 a person made an offer to do it for no thing. (He was to do tor $4 500 the same that the city tad paid $60,000 a year for.) But this temporary ar rangement with Mr. Reynolds was continued till the oloxe of tlie year 1866. riien the person on whom wedepended to do itfoi nothiog, In January, 1866, took pos*es?ion, and continued until a contract was made in February or March, to remove dead animals, and pa v the city for the privilege $1,000 annually. I consider the temporary ar rangement wholly unjustifiable and unnecessary, and a fraud upon the city. huildino cotnrrr jaji/? $26,000. The Commisfiioii has advertised for proposal* to build a count; jail. I believe they have been opened. The ap priatlon was put in by the Counci men, and ratified by the Aldermen. urn ding roi'irr HorHi in thtud district ? $30,000 I can give no information on this subject, f <ren'y-three thousand dollars was among the lowes- bids for tne jail. RAILI.NO AJtOr'ND TOMPKINS SQt'ARK? $30,000. I left these out on the ground thai there was no abso lute neoessity for It It was left also by the Finance Committee. COUNTY CO.VTINOKNCnB? $120,000. On comity contingencies everything is ?addled that if not provided for somewhere else. I think it cannot be rtdnced, and ought not to be. rhe Board ot Supervi sors say that hey have the bent right to sontr .l the paying out of thin sum. Seme times I claim to audit af ter them, fhey always audit the accounts of the Sheriff aed those that are strictly eounty accounts. CORO.NKR8' KKSH ? $18,000. These were the same last year. (1RAN1SO CORF-ORATION DOCKS AND HUPS? $?, 000. This is needed, and It Is a very moderate appropriation. CLRANI.VO WRMrm? $26?,2<i4. Q. What, in your judgment, could the streets, under a tnlr contract, as required by law, be kept clean for ! dnrlug the veer? A. One hundred and fifty tnonsand dollars. 1 recommended $269,224 on the ground that they would sot be comraeted out as the cnarter Impe ratively requires. We have got into this year, and we are going on at a pretty rapid rate already. The con tractor proposed last year, In Jnly, to do the work for $143,000. These contracts tie now before the Common ( ouncil nnected upon. They went on and cleaned them by the day's wo-k. The revenue from the sale of manure last j ter was $20,000. rorrtNOTNtTW op common council ? $16,000. My objection against pitting this in was a shamefal ebune for carriage hire on the part of a fow members of the Common Council. I should not put in over $10,000 at any rate. DOCKS AND RUTS (W*W WORK) --$160,000. Q. With the continuance of the existence of the Har boi Encroachment Commission, how much this year Is neceseary fbr docks and slips!1 A. I put in $100,000, and not half of that has been "pent; 1 should not think that over $60,000 would be wanted in ease the commit mon should eontlnue; In case It should be repealed, $100,000 the Amplest way would be to strike off $60,000. ?nemo MONcmnrr to <ikn. worn? $23,600. } d'(n9t thipk m/Mtf tha\ ijbl Common Couaoil have any legitimate authority tn making this appropriation.

Q. Is it absolutely necessary that the Bovery ami Chatham street should be paved at ptesont? A. rheie ts as much reason for pariag them by general tax as for ptnsg Broadway. My opinion is that $50,000 a year should be raided, and that expended for paving, making at the earn* time, judicious arrangements with the railroad cum pa nies. PRI.YT1NU ? $86,000. The printing has never been put out under contract, as the charter requites. A great many jobs are gat ap. For example, a job was given to Messrs. Mu-joedon h Baker, to print 1.600 copies of the charter. fliay asked for taU $3,000. I sent a copy cf the chait?r, as It had b?ea printed hy them, to a publisher, a*kmg him what ha would do the stme work tor. The estimate was made at $817. 1 claimed to audit this acc.unt myself, and I to Ml them I would j>aj them one thousand dollars, and no mora. Q. If the printing should be done in an ecmomioal manner, could i not, in your bast judgment, be done (or $30,000? A. In that printing, you understand, ts in cluded adveitlslrg. I took tke responsibility of aivurtie iojj fcr valid bids last year. Tho true way ti oorrcet abuses of this kind is to plant your stakee. As they are going on now, without contract, they ctanot get along for less than $86,000. By advertising and getting wds it can be done for $60,000. My opinion is that you hag better pass t -at as it is. y. Does net the oity charter make it inonaibent upon the Comptroller, when there is an expenditure of mora than two hundred and fifty dollar* to get the wore flea* by oon tract V A. I believe it does. Q. How much of the $86,000 whiih is now asked for bus already been spent ? A. I should suppose about $26 000. Q. What can the balance be done (or if contrasted for as it ought to be r A. According to my statement, for $76 0C0 Q. Can the printing be done for less than $86,000, at the rate it has been going cat A. No, au. Q. How much of that has actually been spent? A. From 926, 000 to 930,000. By a system of e?nutMt Ifoa balance can be done (or 936,000 at all events. ROADS AND AYXN11M? $60,000. Q. How much in your judgment would be propert A. $30,000. REPAIRS TO PUBLIC BC1LD1NUS ? $60,000. The CommlsslcnercfKepalrsand Supplier, tn 18&6, west on and expended to the amount of 9121,000 beyjod tks appropria ion, which you will find as arrearages. 1 sap posed he would give me all the arrearages of 1866 aai be put in the^appropriation of this $121 000. Wbea the year closed he brought in a bill first to i.ae amwnt uf $36,000. Subseqneatiy there wera found in the Depart ment of Repairs and Supplies bills certified by the lata Commissioner to the amount of three th maod and soma dollars. When I got knowledge of this, I ma<?e a state ment of this (act to the Common Council, aod asked Usw to pass an ordinance. Of the $60,000 and this item, 940, 000, therefore, is in arrearage. ?

HTBEKT KXPKHHM AXD PAVINO? $75 000. I think 9*0 000 judiolously and economically expended would be sufficient. HTATiow aouan? $26,000. Q. How many s'ation houses do they propose to buQdt A. I don't know of more than one. TTCTH AVIWII WORKING AS A COUNTRY BOAS? 918,000. I think this might be reduoed this year one-half. WARD MAPS AND BtrRVXTLNC. FOB TAX COMMiaSIOMMS? 910.000. This is necessary. POLICE exprnses? $328,600. Q. Does the Police Department or New York, judieiona ly and economically managed, require that sum ? A. I am not competent to judge; I think tho city is legalf bound to pay that sum until it is reduoed; the aaUrlai since 1861 have incrsasrd no less than $20,000. Q. Cannot these sa la ties be reduced five, en, or tweaty per cent, without anyldettfment to the efficiency of tha Police Department ? A. I do not consider myself at al competent to answer such a question. NEW YORK LBGI4UTPKB. Senate. Ai.ha.tt, March 18, 1846. rrrrnoNS. By ilr. Bbook? ?
