Its Deeds , Misdeeds and Omis tiont , The Msenb'iog of the Legislature of thin State on tbe firtt of January last, wan a ma'.ter ot mnei speculation, ca!cula'ion and observation among the people. It was not abwoiutey certain that either of the three political paities had ihe ascendancy in either House. It was not believed (bat all the nowJy elected Senators claimed by the black Sewardites would surrender their former po litical principles nerely for a seat In thatb>dy; and tt *m claimed as certain that one Senator, elec led by the Know Nothing*, and pledged to their taicb and princi ples, wou!d adhere steadfastly to the party wbioh secured bim bis seat. Bat npon the first trial of strsngth, a nujoriiy of the Senate knelt before the altar of nig<er woi shippers, and have there remained the most abj?o! aid subservient too s of Thurlow Weed In every in star ce where their votes were required they most readi ly bowed down before the grsat Mcgal, and submitted like doves to bis imperious behests. Tbe House of Assembly was nearly equally divided in riangiilar paits-the democrats, Know Nothing* and niggeiitee being of nearly equal strength. The firmer, however, split in twain, rendering their strength inferior to either of the ether f?c ions. Toe contest for Speaker was fierce, determined aud relentless. Three weeks were spent in fruitless effort. Neither party wou'd jield, neither would compromise, neither woulf capi'.uUte. The Know Noihiigs polling tie united largest vote. boast rg oi tbtir plurality, deminded the Shaker. The de nocrats asserted that ihev held a plurality, if broug it trgeite-. So after an unprecedented eoatesi f<r three weeks, the nigger worsLippars finally sunk their Identity and went over to the democrats, electing Mr. Robinson S(etker. The weapon* of warfare were then thrown down, and from that lerirdtbeie nas scarcely been any d<sc>jusi>n open political topics. Ibis is accounted tor, from the fact, that the leaders well knew their inability to oarry through any scheme of a party political character. Moroters arpea^ed to devote themselves to business which bad no influence in drawing party lines. The rnsii ee* cf tbe session has oeen purely ef loctl and personal m erest. Very few measures ot publio im poitai.ee or necessity bftveei ployed rru h tine. An in dustrious lcbt>y leatll) assemoled. Hnndieds of c'aiout agairnt the btate, which had been over and over again re jected, were revived, and largely increased in amount. Be<ng a new Sena e and House. and neai ly all the mem bers ut p. actised in toe ezp'olts of the loshy, they very gerer ally lift ned trl'h favor to the importuiitticM of she sturdy aud impertinent bop gars, Consequently, more claim bi Is were Introduced, in both bosses, than have l>een known tor many sessions. Claims, worn out with age, bare t?eo galvanized revamped, and brougct berore tne Iegis.'ature, in several instances, where seventy five per cent has been piei'ged to the miscrean s, the etaim i-iokvia hove iog about tbe capital. Very lew bills ot public importance have been intro duced in tbe legislature; indeed, so far as the general interest of tbe State is concerned, no legigia ion of scarce ly any kind waa mdispensib'e A majority of bills of t>t.ch a character as required any const deration were e'tner reglected or defeated. AmODg these are the tem pera tee cr license qunstiins, public health at qu?rau tir es, security of deposits in Sarlrga Banks, New York city rharter, relating to distilst courts in Ne* York, to rrp'n'ze an Engineer's Department, preventing iilega' votirg in New Yon, and a lew others, l'ubhjaots ?h>ch were passed, and those for the support of government, legulatlcg and distiltuMpg c?t?l monies, Miaot>sbtng water Hoes in New Yo-k harbor, regulation and govern ment of Maflkattan Pank, authorizing SUckoiidge Indi ans to bilng suits for recovery oi lands, reorganizing j He ra te and Jucicial Oistriots. apportioning members of As sembly, hew Ycrk tax bill, auihorizirg the eieotion of a batoffe at Albany, and a very few others ot minor impor tan oe. Th?re were eight hundred and seventy bills introduced in both bouses, about an ejtial number in eaih branch oi the legislature. Sever. -eighths oi them were of a pure ly i rieate and Iceai charac er, c< nsisting mainly in canal claims, tor canal bridge*, plank roads, extending time f ir coileciii g tax?B road and soh ol districts, amending vil lage charters, insurance companies, anc various portione ot the revised H'atu'ett; repean.-g laws of previous legisla tures. f*&uie- tenths ol the time has been spent in consider it g n alters demanded by tbe lobby, of a private and I cat nalure. A proposition was submitted to institute a board of cla its, sin ilsr to that under the general go ;e nment aid ought to have been adopted. In enmparufn wih tbe last this has been a harmnlous session. Very few question# were presented calculated to art-use polltletl or otber passions. Tbe ooastitution of both houses rendered anythirg of this r.aure pertsciy absurd, as the triangular state of tbe H> use, and the doubtful lepub'ican maj'rlty In the Senate, turbid anT oi tbe political t ot bear's from ven' anng to throw anv fire brands therein. Very few Bbunoombe speeches were made, aud no bill or proposition consumed any treason able length of time. Had there been a strong mejorl'y of either political party, davs and weeks -vould nave been spent In discuising Kansas, Nicaragua Frank lie ce George Law, Millard Fillmore, and all the nigger ism a of tbo day. Nine- tenths of the senators were merely vo lng mem bers. None, with the exception of Sickles ann Brooks, were very greatly sflllcteu with the c<>acthu$ loquandi, altbeogh Messrs. Madden, Jattou Smith, Ramsat, Lie, l'attereon and Hale were teady tor short df cusslon Mr. W?iswor1h, of Buffalo, Is evl'ently toe man of most a fit lity; aid row, since be bas entered political life, we can disoovei no reason why his cemocrati; friends can no', use him aucces>tu.Jy in tbe future Tnke be -^ena<e alt'ge ber. it nay be ranked as quite as conservative a hody aa the present degenerate times rill - dmif. Toe solid talent in either house is < f an extremely in erior quality. In tbe Assembly there eere sucb men as Noithrrp, Snow, Wakemau and Hyde, wh > may oe etnsltlered excellent smmn orators, but their oa.-?Mty will never place tbem In the rank of ao e men. Odeil, Tieecott, B. Baily snd Van Sen Woo rd are among tie m vi, shrewd and practiced leaders: and rom their cauti n in abstaining fr<-m leng speecoes genet ally succeeded in tl eir efforts. Speaker Robinson, th< ugh an am ab e gen tleman and ti lerable f-re? Iding rffice', nas no pretensions t<> statesmanship. It in not believed that he prssesae* any such aaplratlorr. Tke position he beld came in o bis buds by mere accident. lie never oould have o*en elec ed Soeaker, on acc- uotof his ooHticai strength, f >r the soft shells comprised a very Inconsiderable number in the Assembly. Upon the whole, the people heve reaaon ttr omiratu latlon that this b :dy of men c?.mml'ted no more et orml t-es than the v die.
