KAMA* BEE TIRO A! TBI TABSMACU. Material Aid Cmu*UIm Appointed? What the Km Stale Ami Old aid what (hey Wdn'tJ and what they Intend do Oo?Kir marks of General Schuyler, General Pome* ray, Mr. Owight and Others, <&c., dte., Ac. A meeting, tailed by the Kjuum Amet loan Settlement Company of thi* city, wan held last evening at the Broad way Tabernacle. It was expected that the building would be crowded, but when the hour appointed arrival It was not mere than two-third* fall at the very utmost, aai here and there umong the audience were a few ladies not mere than a doaen altogether. The meeting waa, in fact, an assemblage of nigger worshippers, and a tew others who were present metely to gratify their curiosity. Theodore D wight, the President of the "Settlement Com pany," wss in the chair. He opened the meeting wit li a lew remarks explanatory of the objects for whioh it Lad been convened. He said the meeting hal been called by the "American Settlement Company" ?f this city for the purpoee of presenting to a New York audience the representatives of the Free State Executive Committee of Kansas, and some of their members and associates, who bad been appointed to make known to their fellow citizens of the Eastern and Northern States the condition and prospects ot that new Territory. The Committee would have the pleasure of presenting during the evening General Schuyler, formerly ot this bta'.e; Judge Conway, formerly ot tee South, but now a resident of Kansas, and a Judg* under its present State o-ganization; General l'omeroy, or Massachusetts, like General Schuyler, bearing a worthy name ? (Ap plause)? a name which called up Revolutionary associa tions of the highest kind, it teemed necessary tnat a short sketch should be given of the operations which bad been carried on in this State during the last year and a half, la July, 1864, a meeting was held in this same building to devise ways and means for promoting the settlement of Kansas with the friends of freedom. The result of the meeting was, that !>n association was toimed, under the name of the New York Kansas Leag-.te. Some three or four thousand emigrants went to Kansas, under the auspices of the as sociation, although their expenses were not borne by the i.eigue. But the association rendered every aid in their power, and gave them all the necessary information in their power, so important to rettlera in a new Territory. He defied any man. whether friend or foe, to point to a single illegal act that had been performed by any man sent out by the association. Soon after the operations of the Kansas League had oeen commenced, it was deemed desirable that something more definite su ould be done, and that arrangements should be made for the union of men upon some particular place in Kansas; and, v the re fore, in Octocer, another society was formed, called the "American Settlement Society.'' A committee of seven explored the Territory, and selected a place for settlement upon the Sama Fe road, a short distance from Council Grove, to which the name ot Council City was given. Through the 'influence of the Kansas League there were assembled at this point some 600 or 8u0 settlers. He would now introence (>en. Schuyler, a resident of Kau nas at "present, but formerly of New York, who would give tie audience some details respecting the oondltion of the people cf Kansas and their prospects. Gin. Uaivruat thanked the audience for their kind re ception. He felt, while standing here, that he waa breathing a new element, entirely different from that which hao sorrounied him ot lae. He could recognise here a home; be was fully conscious that he was in the Empire State? a State that be could call hi* own, and any citizen of New York who had ever been far from home would teel that it was no small matter to say that he came from the Empire State. There was one charac teristic about the meeting to-night differing from the meetings that the friend h of Kansas had held in othei places, and that was, the sparse attendance of ladies. The ladiea generally turned out to attend Kansas meet lcgft, because their hearts were with the friends of free dom in Kansas. He could assure the audience that the present peace in Kansas was owing vary much to che conduct of the ladles of that Territory. Many of them had, no doubt, heard the anecdotes travelling the roun la ef the press with regard to the action of tne ladles of lawrenee, when that eity was threatened with an inva sion by the Missourians. At that perilous hour, wn?n the city was beleaguered by the enemies ot Kanaas, who were encamped by thousands around it, ready to burn it down, as they had declared they would do; and when the defenders of lawrenoe were learlul they should not have sufficient ammunition to sustain the expected tfiege, what stand did the women ot Larrenoe take'- Were they looking tor a Mieltv to which they mlgnt fleer No! Tney were the bravest of the brave, and they stood tide by side by their husbands, and th?y said if their husbands were doomed to death, they toe would share the same fate. About the middle of the siege they found that amunition had been forwarded for them, whichtbey could enly get throu?h the eveay's camp. The women came up and saia, "Give us the joo, and we will see it we cannot get it through." They accordingly laid their plans, and hiring a pleasure wagon ? a covered wagon, drawn by oxen? some of their number, who volunteered tor the purjiose, started for the camp of the enemy. They managed to pas* the sentinels up:n the other tide, reached the house where the free State powder was deposited, secured it safely, and again elud irg the vigilance of tne een'ineli, reaohed their friends in satety. The ladies also marshalled themselves into a military company, and bad their regular drills They were tniiy reeolvec, if necessary, to go out to the field ot battle and fight the enemy. He stood hstore them as a delegate of the fiee state man of Kansas. He came to tell them the story of their wrongs. There had been a thousand things said of the free i-tate i*ople of Kansas that were not true. He pro nounced all the statements ot acts of violence committed by the free State men upon other persons in the Tarn tory to be untrue. He found a great many persons who professed 10 he fiiends of freedom in Karuas asking them whether they bad not been committing' thise great wTot>gB. They came hereto pronounce the whole of the specifications contained in the Kansas message as /his-, with a aii gle ex:eptiou. and that waa the arrest of a free State man accidentally frcm the hands of the Sheriff of I Douglas county, and that was done on the impulse of the moment, by young men, who were prompted to re sist the Sheriff in consequence of what they deeu.ed to he a great act of injustice on his pari. The free State men of Kansas bad never bro ken the laws. The audler.ee would bear in mind that there were two sets of laws in Kaunas? one the laws ot the I' nlted States government, the organij laws, and the other the laws ot the Legisla'ure, which was said to tie a Kansas legislature, but which was known to us as a Missouri Legislature. When he spoke of the laws of the Territory, be had refeience to Territoiial laws, and he defied the enemies of freedom in Kansas to point out whete, in any ins'ance, they (the free State men) had ?"'ken the laws. Hen. S. here recapitulated, at some length, the incidents attending the rescue of a free State i''an liom the hands of the Sheriff of Douglas county, and then continued by eaylug that the citizens of Kansas now present at that meeeilng went to that Terrify with a itcling that they were to make a home for themselves, that thev wire to mingle with Northern and Southern n-en, and that they were to plant Institutions like tm*e they bad left behind. There tney had labored for this last year. They bad been over "a large portion ot the Territory, and mingled freely with all toe classes of the people there. They were acquainted with their de sires and weie familiar with the state of things there, and they were now commanded by the people rf Kansas to come to you and say, "We have tried squatter sovereignty fully, and It has proved a failure. Gi\e us protection for thise rights which as American citizens we suppose we enjoy." They were all familiar with the state or things in Kansas, and t hey knew that the free State men had been disfranchised ?that ihey had been robbed of one of the dearest rigu s to man, the light of tho ballot box. Their enemies nad openly declared that they were determined to make Kan sas a slave State, and' tliey had very nearly succeeded in doing so. They had taken possession of the ballot box by violence, elected their own Legislature, and pnssed laws by which free ftate men were prevented from giving utter ance to their opinions upon the subject of shivery. Whe ther the enemies of freedom would succeed or not, he was unable to say, but he still ho|>ed tnat the prospects of Kansas becoming a fieo State would brighten and be crowned with ruccess. A Committee of Investigation had just been ordered by Congrets to proceed to Kansas , and make aa elimination into the his:ory of the alleged electkn frauds, He thinked C >ngresa for this act, and he ctull well Imagine the snouts of congratulation that wou d go up frota the frto State men of Kanaas when this news should reach them. There had been days of sorrow ant sadness on the part of the friends of freedom in Kansas, now the sun looked bright, and the prorpeot <>f a speedy and honorable settlement of this whole con troversy was encouraging indeed. General Schuyler then concluded hi* spee.'h by giving a description ot the Territory and the inducement* it holes out to settlers. Geoeial Povkroy, of l.awreuce, originally of Masu^hu* setts, was rext iutroduseL Be said he tea* a workfug and not a speaking mar, for it was of more importance with them In Kansas what a man did than what he said. It was time that something was done, as enough had already been said. What ho should say, however, would he In icgaid to the rights or the free State men and tbelr wants, ihey wete invited thoie, and they went, although by legislation msny millions of acres of Tree territory were thrown open to the entrance of slavery. They be can to look out for homes for themselves when they went there? homes in which they might happily terminate the evening of their existence. Wnoi they went there, the land appeared to te deserted by every one, and they deit-rtnined to wake ft into civilization and life. To tleni, In all Its wl'dte?s, It looked, however, like a Gar ocn of IMen in all its loveliness. But L. was not long before its as|?ct was changed, and before the signs of cultivation made their appearance Council City and Uwreuce had their foundations laid, and I suppose, said the speaker, you have hoard ofthea. (Applause.) Well, he continued, we organize 1 an Im migration, but not au invasion, an we have been accused of d< log. There wete three organizations in existenco be fore outs, and they were started in Missouri, for the pur pose of extendlrg the peculiar institutions of that State. Thty sought to procure protection tor slave property in esse they fail In overthrowing tho Missouri compromise. Well, on the Doth of March lust we wore to have an elec tion tor the legislature, bnt the Missouri man came over fo tnke i art In It, and they brought over their candidates with them, (lauahter ) They voted out the tree State n en, because, as their Hteaker said, they agreed to vote t' em out before they came. Afier this they remained till He Fourth of July, and mad* laws, and such law* too, that all the law* of Missouri would be applicable to Kansas. They also passed others, making it crininal to speak nuaisst slavery; and if anything written agwimt It got ii 10 the hand* ct slaves, It warf indictable as * grand !ar and punlsbaVe a,- a %l,vj r?.t -j.? to i?w, before allowing ?* to rote, to support the acts or 1793, I860, the Kansas Nebraska biU of 1864, and to pay a duller to the Sheriff. (Laughter.) No If, we wu*ld not ecjede to this, Imium it would be swearlug a??y oar independence m Americans. but we pledged ourselvee to support the constitution of the I'nitei Htafee, and t% act as became good law abiding citizens. Wtr could O't be alaves. We could not hay* tne (tripe uyou our btokN nor the brand nprn oar foreheads, tor we were freedom's men. ( Applanre.) We went to Kansas under the pro tection ot the previsions et' tbe bill panned by Congress, allowing the people of that Territory to frame their own lawn. New we want Congress to support us in the miiii tenanoe of our rights and t? carry out in gewd fatth te wards us the provisions of the Kansas bill. We did not go there to interfere with Missouri. It ha* been sail if we make Kan km a free State f I every won't bo worth an} - thing in Missouri, hut we have nothing to do with that. Haw v and freedom hare a bad a free race ; and although, at the first, the free State* were behind, they are n*w ahead of the Slave States. The speaker presented New York and Virginia an a proof of the effects of slavery add freedom. In the^latter S'ate, he Bald, the average va lu of ihe land per acre is estimate j at about eight f olltrn, while that oi New York la put down at twenty nine dollars. The same proportion wm (eon in the resources, the manufactures, the products and the commerce of both State*. It was in view of these facts that their preference was given iu Kaunas for fieecom over slavery; and while they did uotteek to Irvarie the rights ot any of their fellow citi zens in Kansas, they were determined to advance, as far as la them lay. the cause of freedom, and with it the prosperity of the Territory. Now what, he continued, we want is to be let alone; and if this is done, we will not in terfere with the institutions of Missouri; bat If we are not let alone, we cannot oentrol human passions, and the institutions of Missouri may go with the things that were. In regard to the wants ot that Territory, taey are ?hose which every settlement requires. We wane men ? population fast? and we need capital In advauoe of population, as it is always the great attraction to emigration. Without it nothing can be done. Make it tor the interest ol men to go there, and they will go. that, country is the heritage of freemen, and raubt be theirs. Where we had one thousand men going last year, we will have teu thousand this year. We have a young cradle of liberty in Kansas, and we will rock it. too, on the next Fourth of July. (Appliuse and laughier ) We must not give it ui; and If lean read anything in the signs of the limes at Washington, it will not be given up. I Mr. John A. Kim, presented the following resolution : ? Resolved, That a collection be now taken up (or the aid of Council Uity, Kansas, aud a committee ol live ue appointed to receive aid and disburse tho same. Mr. Simpson seconded tho resolution, with a few re marks. He was, he said, in favor of freedom. This was no cry for assistance trom a foreign country, bat from our brothers. He had opposed this Nebraska perfidy, brought out by a Douglas, and he was determined to oppose it to the last. He, for one, was in favor of af fording every protection to our tellow citizens in Kansas ogsiniit the attacks of ruffians. The tree settlers in Kansas had been called negro worshippers. They are branded, he continued, as being black republicans. I rejoice in the tame of r? publican, bat thu question is, not for the colored men, but for the white free men of tho whole country. Assistance had been fresly tendered to the Greeks over twenty yean ago, when they were struggling for their liberty. Here, however, was a Spartan banu In our own country whica deserved support, and with the help of heaven they would have it. Mr. Jou.v A. Ki.vo was the text speaker. He tMt, he mid, a deep Interest in the succeeiful establishment of our fellow-conntrymen in Kansas. Assistance had been dtmacdad, aid he felt eertain it would be liberally gtvan to sustain there sons of liberty as a free colony from the Slate ot New York. It was manifest tiniest they did not receive aid, and survived, it would be through I>eiil and suffering; bat if that a*>Utanoe is given at once, they will be enabled to go on prospering with a rapidity that enliveus and cheers. We have, be continued, received terrible accounts or their sufferings, but in the midst of ail their tnals aud troubles they never yielded, and were determined to hold out as long as they bad life, and to make a free land of that territory which they bad selected for their future home. We have a rig lit to contribute aid to build mills, hotels, school houses and churches. This we have a right to do, and shall do, asd they will do the rest themselves. (Ap plause. ) We see in that Territory the rights of free citi 10 ns attacked? even tbe voters driven from the polls, and from pouesskn of their land, against the principles of squatter sovereignty. Now the question is, whether it will be a ft ee or slave Territory, and what we have to do as teasonable solid men.

Thm want had often been expressed by the ci tlzens, and the provi sions of charter being such that the prospect of a supply of water was remote. Mayor CUckenar proposed an amendment, ^which provided a speedier way of sup plying this want. He devoted considerable time to the subject at Trenton. Tfce amendment, with Home change, was adopter), and provides that the city may, by a two third vote, dccide to contract with any person or com pany (Or a supply of water.

At ten o'clock this morning the Court of Appeal* was opened, and a full bench of the eight Judges wet# pre Mat. About tli* ft rst business was the announcement of the t ecinion on tbe two cumi submitted to them m to tb* constitutionality of tbe Prohibitory Liquor law of tb?t last Manioc, In the Brooklyn mm of the People vs. Toynbee, the Supremo Coart decided that the search and shm? clause# were unconstitutional. This decision th i Court of Appeals affirmed. The other, tbe Buffalo case of the People vs. Wj nehamer, tbe Supreme Coart desldel tbe principle of prohibition constitutional; this tlieCour ot Appeals reversed. 80 that, in both cases the eourt or la ? report bare pronounced the law uasowtltutionai. Tbe Judges stood five to three; those dissenting ?re Messrs. T. A. Johnson, Wright and Mitchell. Tbe news ww first brought to the ears of ttov. Clark by Mr. Weed. His Excellensy took tbe decision quite philo sophically, as if he txpeeteu it, merely turning bis head towards a person with whom he had been conversing upon other matters, and said to him, "I suppose jrou are satisfied now." Yesurday the members of tbe court st<x d equally divided. Ibis shows the oorrestness of the s'nu'ttent made in the Herald ten days aince? thata pi oinbi.ity then existod of tbore being a tie vote. But since yesterday morning the mind of one of the Judges has nndeigoue a change ? hence the decision made this morning. Phe news spread through the city with elec tric speed, and the telegraph spread tbe news to every eectic u of tbe country with the quickest capaoity. What is to be done nowV A lieense law of some kind ma at be passed by the present I legislature. Is the one before the House a proper one, and will it be aoiohscel in? The smallpox subject was up in tbe House thin morn iug. The committee had under consideration a bill ap piopiiattog twenty-live thou>and dollars to the various hospitals of tbe State. Mr. Northrop movfcd to strike out the Albauv hospital, on account of refusing to re ceive and administer to the necessities of twj members of the House attacked with smallpox. As the mana gers hail refused any aid In iheeo cases, and the two per sons were (trangers in the city, the institution should, Inconsequence ot such oonduct, iezeire no petunUry assistance from the State. Mr. B. Billy sustained thw motion. He thought it was a hoapital, In tact, estab lished for tbe benefit of the unfortunate stranger. He learned now that this Albany institution exacts pay from its inmates, and that none were allowed admission, under certain byelaws, who wero affiliated with infections diseases. The question was laid on the table until to morrow, when the Committee of Investigation will re port. In the meanwhile, the two members of the legis lature remain in the poorhoune ! riln passing up on tbe items put to the Oeneral Appropria tion bill, tne House this morning, upon the motion of Mr. Noithrop, struck out tbe sum of thirteen thou-iand do'lars lor the Railroad Commissioners. Tne House hav ing by an almost unanimous vote, repealed the law, were peifrotly justifiable In striking oat that Item. Now, let 1 he Senate reloro to fepeal tbe law, and the Commisai >n trs will be compelled to wait for tneir pay until the rail road companies shall act. f he douse will not retract from its position, come what may. ? The city uin tbe hands of the country members again. A bill was btfore the Senate tbla morning, making pro vision for the opening, ko. of the new Central nark, or Manhattan park, as recently christeaed. A provUton in the bill authorized tbe Mayor and Common Council of the city of New York to appoint five cominUition ors, who should have the whole park matter in chaige. The committee were Retting along har moniously, when Mr. I'pham, of Ueuesee county, thinking he knew better than the city delegation or the Common Council who woulu be the best iuen for com missi oners, proposed the names of William Kent. Peter Cooper, Jamts V. i'xcoboru, J*mes Harper and James K. Cooley. Mr. Sickle* resisted this motion with zeal and ability, but he waa overborne ? both Know Nothings and lepubbcana voting in favor of those names, and they wero adopted. Alt good men, no doubt, but why not allow New York 10 make her own cht i;e 1 During this debate, Mr. Broom sta ed that Fernando W< od was a Know Nothing, and ptesi4ed over tke t x ecu lite committee which nominated James W. Barker for Mayrr, and then dmnrird tbe Know Nothings, went to Tammany Hall and was nominated hiaself oy the sett shells. Mr. Rckles replied by stating that large number:' who had been deceived have ever eioce, been leaving the dark lantern grntry. News has gone to Washington that a resolution de nouncing Post master Vosbuijih, of this city, was passed by a democratic city convention yesterday. I'ostinaiter General Campbell will be txius misinformed. A resolution cmsuiirg our 1'cttmanter, alleging that be employee Know Nothing", was offeied, but the convention would not listen to it. After the adjournment, a set of out fitter*, prompted by a disappointed office seeker, hurraed at tbe msointion, ard one of the morning papers an nounced that it was adopted by the convention. Nothing can be furthir from the truth. Tbe fact la that there is not a singie Know Nothing clerk employed in tho Post office. On the contrary, theie are as many as four, if not moie, Roman Catholics engaged in the Post office. Injustice waa dene in a letter that apixurod In your columns, a da.v or two since, to two New York members, Mr. Anthon and Mr. Itae. It was charged that taesc Itentlemen ww? purposely absent lrom tbe Hume tvtisn the motion to take up the liquor hilt was before the As semh'y, -and that the want ot their vut<a defeated the resolution. Mr. Anthcn was absent 011 a committee at tbe time in question. Mr. Rae was attending the death bed of his brother. The Hiraid h so extensively read, and its influence is so great, that tbe report, if uncor icc ed, may injure those gentlemen in their districts, l'bey will both vote in ftvor of tbe repeal bill at the pro(>er time, and neither has tbe slightest desire to ?hi k t nr responsibility in the matter. raw YORK liUMSUTURH.

Shortly lo'oie 0 c 'clock on Tuesday morniog, a Are occurred In tho back basement of the paint store kept by Mr. Louto U. Cobn, at Kb. SI avenue A.

Cobn, brotber to the proprietoi of the Ktore. It appears thit the in jured man was in the employ of liis brother, and was a', wotk in the back basement, making a preparation of gum and oil to mix with paint. The mixture, it ?eeun, boiled over, or in some way took (ire outside cf the kettle, and ? i his endeavor to *xlingui<iti the Haines set his o#n CiCtbiLgon lire, aLd almost instantly th.i whole of the basement was in (lames.
