The thirty-tight black republican Cossacks of Governor Hieg, billeted open the municipal prosperity or this city by a hungry parti'/an Legislature, make but small pro gratia id uitur ?mrmiu| campaign ugsiust uie uuarierou rights of UtcdRf- of New York. The noiso, mischief1, and nefarious character Of their proceedings have, indeed, created an atandauia^arm and excitement, but the chance ?pf their galrjog aar prsctioal foothold rapidly reaches the certainty of their reduction to a well circumscribed pretence. The more pertinnciona and dangerous squad?the Police Crmmissff-ners?encountered two mate rials checks yeslerdty. The members ?!' that Board had in the most unscrupulous and selfish manner forced upun the men of the Police Department of the city a movement towards Ibrestalllng the decision of the Supreme Court of the State? that Board a/ould make them a sort of collateral Jury? and Insist that their roll call should not only be n exprcsstnn ef readiness for duty in their precincts, but ?Jao a divisam upon the question ss to the constitutionality of n new and ext raordinary act of the legislature. To day that question divides three ot the sitting Judges oftho Supreme Court, and tho strictest construction of the opt wen which supports the new Board does not actually more than make a technical decision In their favor. the two Boards of Com mist loners took no action of an -official nature to relation to the Police Department, yeeter <*"7- Those officers and mrn wbo ha>l been dismissed from the municipal service took formal leave of that service, and surrendered the city accoutrements, where they had possessing of any. Sergeant Johns, of the Broadway squad, surrendered his star, Ac , and had a duo receipt therefor at the Chiefs office. The now Commission had a tneetinp, and caused fresh orders to be drawn up for distribution at tbo station houses, these orders being prepared upon some relation to the decisions In the Supreme Court. U would appear from every indication Ln the hearing of the members of the Albany commission that they will take their course more ln vton of an appeal to the iAgtilaturc again, and a reconstruction of their bill, than rely on tbo (Jourt of Appeals. They give up pretty nearly all hope ofachieviug possession and control of the department and its appur tenancev, and will take tholr measures with an oy e to a call by Gov. King for a special no onion Tbc action dt the City Council last night carries tho proposal of tho Beard of Aldermen for a city watch reorganisation of the police, to a stage which not only leaves that to be merely a matter of a few days Celay, but it indicates Ihs close of tho entire campaign in its bearings, ujam a speedy and regular payment of the men and ttie regular attachment of the municipal from the State organization. From this action of city government, from the appended decisions, the able letter of the Major to the Common Council, and all the other matters which can bo regarded an bearing upon the issue, It is evident that tho polico campaign must now resolve Itself into tbc establish sent oi two independent police organ!radons. We will have ttie nuuiiC4|ial police at the expense of the city, and those of the State at the expense of the Bute. Such is the interest wl.b which tbc proceedings against the city ore regarded by alT rtas-os that each day brings tncreai-i d e\ idence of the tremendous record which is oc cumulating In the |>opular resentment agitnst those who tiki jmrt wilt the enemies of oar municipal libertiea. .aetlevrnlrg, atauotber mooting of the citizen volunteers, Henry W ilson, their commander-in-chief, was summarily deponed, and AMerman William Wilson dec ed in hi* r?<-a>1. The proceed tugo oa tho orcaelon gave a atiU more Marked exprornon of the municipal apirtt of the citizen voluitteeni, and Uielr determination to aland by the chartered right* and the executive otBcers of the city In the present imasgenry. A full report of lliotto and other matter* of like bearing will be published to-morrow. Supreme Court?Uenerwl Term. Present, Judges Mitchell, Roosevelt and I'eaboJy. The reading of the decisions on tbe constitutionality of the new I'olice law attracted a crowded and noticeably In telhgsnt audience In tbe Supreme Court room yesterday. Jadge Mitchell delivered tho majority opinion, Jndge Ruofccvelt th# minority, and Judge Psobody reading hie last Tbe greatest interest was apparently manifested. jrDCR mitcitkll's opinion. In tbe argument of this case there was scarcely any (If any) differWM of opinion as to the rules by which tbe ceortitution of our Slate Is to be interpreted. Tho rule under the federal constitution Is Inapplicable. Tnat instrument was framed with the view to confer only certain defined and limited powers on tbe general government. Central legislative power was not glTen to Congress, but special powers only, and those carefully ouumerated in aerentecn subdivisions. This alone would have limited It to those enumerated jioworit and such an were nores-ar I ly Implied from them, but, ttijealoa* were the |>coplo at that time dt the federal government, thai among tbeaaiculwiente proposed at thu Orel session of Uiiigrettv under tho constitution, and afterwards adopted, * a* the one declar lug that " the powers not delegated to tho United dutes by the conrtltutiuii, nor prohibited by it to the Stales, wrro renerved to the stales respectively or to the people." the reverie rule applies to tbe State legislature. There mint he somebody in which a power of legislation ehaJI realde competent to meet all the varied and changing wants of the community, and unlimited except by auch restriction* aa may be apeclally named. He, therefore, who would nuatatn the power of Onngreas to do any particular act. murl And In tho coastlMUon of tbe t'ntiod ttaaea the elauro which give* tie |iowor?h it when a law ta parsed by the State L<ugialatnre tt la to be presumed valid, until aomu clauae in the cooatli ition of the Nate is pointed out which forblda it. Tbe language of the Stale constitution leads to the tame result. (bat "the legtflauve power of IhU State anall Be voated in a achate and assembly." Tbla aloue includes all power of legislation without restriction, except auch aa ta found In the name Instrument, or retulu from tbe higher authority of the federal constitution and of Congress In otriala caaea. The restriction on the power of tbe legislature may be ewtirr express aa In the prohibition to sell the canala or the rait springs, or to give or loan tbe credit of the Slain aa tn other instances?or it may be implied, as when It la declared that "the executive power shall be vosted In a tlwveroor"?the.legblature cannot takeaway that power from that ofllcer or rwst It In anothor. So when It la deckred that "aherills. clerks of counties, itidud log the register and clerk of tbe cHy and county of New York, corooer* and di-lr|rl attorneys shall be ohoeen oy the eieriore of tbe respect .o counties"? no art cl Uie Tcgul dure can aanction another mode of election or appointment to these offices. And ecoord* tngty h cacnnt Bo and was oN disputed that tbe elause providing that "ail county clboers, whose election or ap amtnimert t n?t provided Tor by ihi* oonstitution, shall bo wiected by the ektrtor* ef the retpactlve counties, or ap. pointed by tbe boor da of *e per visors or other ooqpty atetb<Titled as the lsgtdleture shall direct, and that "all city, town and village officers, whose election or appoint ibMiit is not provided for by thu constitution, shall be elected b) Urn .lector* or such Clues, lo?rn? uml Tillages, or ?f eome division thereof, or appoints! by such authorities thereof a* tl?r?

Sec. 'J7. It iu true tliat lh? duties to be performed by this police fence have heretofore bee a per formed through county,or towu^or watd officers. Hit there is nothing m tbe constitution which prevents tha I/! glslature in its sound discretion from transferring the jr-tfontmuce of tho>o particular duties from one class ol officers to another. At common la v, and at the time of the adoption of this constitution, in moa'., if not at the counties, the Sheriff eras, in some sense, head of tht police, and it wis bl3 special duty to preserve tbe peace. Hejis an ofllccr who Ik recogilred by tbe constitution, anil whoso election is there specially provided for, yet thai part of his duties could unquestionably be lakeu frcra him and be performed by nthere, a? l?y the Mayor of a City, ot the head of police. Nor does the constitution declare 01 necessarily imply that duties appertaining by the law as li then stood to a jiarticulag office, should always remain either as appurtenant to that office, or to some other office ol equally limited local extent The office of Sheriff eouhl not be stripped of all its duties, and tho?o duties be al transferred to another officer, but tbls implied prohibl.lor applies as well to a new officer within tbe sume county a? to a new officer whoso powir should cxteud over revera counties. Iu neither case could a transfer be made of al the duties; and it is as much within the competency of tin Legislature to make a partial transfer of thoio duties t< officers who shall have control over several countits, aIt Is to make It to one wbo shall be limited to a slngh county. The language or the constitution was not adopBi by the fhimors of the constitution without dlscrlminatiK as to the words they used. It is, that "all county otllocrt ?all city, town and village officers," shall bo elected or appointed, Ac., by the local authorities. It in not tha all toe duties theretofore performed by those officers shai be thereafter perfonncd by county officers. But knowing and intending that the legislature should regulate the du tiesol oflicern as it should find expedient from timet/ time, the t rainers of the cong itution left to the Legislator* unrestrained tower in that reapec-. It might be that lh< conductors of railroade would become so negligent of thf safety* of passengers that fines and penalties would become necesear) to have a public officer accompany eact train to see that the needful regulations were observed, It might also be that the property carried on iboso rood* would be ho frequently stolen that it would be expediem to hare an olllcer attend each freight train. If so, II would becomo the duty of the legislature to afford that meuns of protection to the citizen and bis property ; and the most effectual means of accomplishing il might he to organize a police force, to be appointed by commissioners, with superintendents under them; and it sou id be necessary to appoint them BOt for a single c fusty. nor by the local authorities, but by some body nl men who should have contr >1 oror toe whole route of the road, as per the Erie road, or our great Central road, 01 the Hudson river road, or the liar em and Albany roul. A similar necessity might arise on our canals. Kivci thieves on the waters around and In tho vicinity of thecttj of New York haze Ionj been complained of. They mnj extend iheir depreda tons (and It is said that they have) to the neighboring counties. An ordinary rol ce force u insathcicn again.-t them. The most etllcicul means U overcome them might bo a force ol meu appointed foi New York and its neighboring ounties, with one bead and equal power In every part of the district. The couati tutiou shows no design 10 cripple th* legislature of iW power of a lording such a remedy. In ail taeso c.isee th? force would be, aa this u a |?dice force; yet It would nol be unconstitutional, although the officers were not appointed for or bv local ruth iriiln The rwv.r wore ni nun (line iu /ported by towns, ihe overseers fleeted or appO'ntel for those towns. Turn responsibility was iu MOM cases shiftod from thj separata tonus to the wtiol< county. As yet It lias not been extended further as i general rnle." Can It bo tint Iftt should become expedien in some iBMaiicee to constitute t?o or more countioa inU one district, for tho poor of those counties and to bave thi overseers electrd or appointed for the whole district, thi; could not be dune?

Thun in in this case, also, txere beiui otlicerit lor diabicU not before known, although perform wg duties formerly |*rforiued by oo inly or t ?wn officer* may also be appointed as the legislature boa dlrectel Tbo Illustrations that have been produced (and mor< m'gbt be furnished, and others are referred to iu the defend ant's points iu arts already [sirred) show thnt there weri good reioom-why this power should hare be?n allowed to the I<egi.- lature, and that It la thus either Die prohibit Intent of the constitution?and aa the power is within th? express snd Idieral words of tho constitution?win hap plies to all ofllrfH therein created, and this office was thereafter created; it follows that tho letter of the constitution concur In au.-'aluiug the law now under consideration. The journal of the conrcntion which framed the presenl constdutHm, and the address made by the members of thai body, have been referred to, to prove that a car dinal object of that Instri ment Is "to reduce and dccentral iso the pal roaage of the executive government;" and that accordingly, in tbo language of that address, "the must important State officers arc mode elective hy tbo pooplo of the State, and most of the officers of elites, towns and counties arc made elective by the voters of the locality they lerve.'' The address thus speaks of the constitution as it Is, and refers t> i. to show in what Instances tin* principle Is carried out?and speakof It ss a limited, not au unlimited, pritciple? it ap plan da tho constitution, not fjr any implied restraini winch it contained on the power of the Utgtsla lure to erect new officer* and to control the raod? of their appointment, whether hy tho Oovernnr ami i Senate, or by districts or localities?but for IN clear nn?l unambiguous provision* by which It ?u e* pressly declared thai certain ufllrers who wore name I ir the constitution should bo elected or appointed by tb> local nuthorltie*, 1* referred to those thus named, and called on the people for approbation of their tabor*, bo cause those special p'ovl'iou* wmo made, and not under the idea that having provided for enmo cases of doccn trallxation they had thor-by Infuttd into the constitution n spirit which mint evtend I. to others. They acoordtngly dlstlrgairh, ard in the claiire last quoted speak, not of ail but ot most 01 the county,! ran and cly ex, an I " their b< rug elective. The framers of thn eon-vltntion, In specifying the instances to which Una principle was ap plied, acted on the wise and c xiirary rule of changing Ui? elemental law In f articular cases, the effect of which war plain to their i*reoptlon?not on some broad theoretical idea, whewe extent with IU sequences and results must be left to time or rbance to tli<oover. The appointment of clhoers for dUtricis smaller than towns or larger tbtn counties they left at large lo the Legislature, In the confidence that in a republic the people may rely, with safety, upon a hegtslature, ooe part ol which l? annually elected: or will have the remedy in their own hands at a succeeding c ecUon. It Is sai l that the law attempts to transfer tin* police property belotigine to the elties of New York and Brooklyn to the new Board of police? (Pee. 1*) If it dii, that would not avoid the whole ait. The section (Ififh) in whlrh this ?nppn?nl trsn-Vr is made Is a dkstin<-t and separate ooe, and may be rejected, and yet the rest of the act be effectual. The case ol Warren vs. Toe City of Char let-town, fit tlray, IM,) states a sensible rule, which Is, substantially- 'bat when the parts of an act are so blended together that the unenn stituUonal |?rt cannot l>? struck out without thereby leaving the act In siirh a condition that it would d?f?v the intenti <n of the legislature, or wlien the unconstitutional part w is mamfsMly the very object of the law, there the whale mutt fall together. 8o it would follow here, that if all this law be uDCon'Ututional but tbe part repealing statutes in conat dent with It?that repealing claim* must fall also Bui the section aa to property l? a comparatively uuliu porta*t part of the act. lie great object evidently In to obtain a new and efln n nt oiyanl/atlon ot police for I'io new district The 1Mb scc.lloo, however, egpreasly If naree that the ownership of the |iro|ierty referred to and tho uae of the name ahall be according to the ordinance* of the commow council* of the two ritlee respectively.

Indeed, aa I Ibe constitution recognises tho divisions o: ihn Hate into l coiirdtcs, and is said thereby to nave sanctioned tbem, so I Jisjh tills act recogniso tho districts of territory om braced in theso counties respectively as 'jaa3iltntlng I the samo governmental departments us before, and 1 in this respective it may be said, in tome s--u-e, to lead i its sanction to their existence and continuation for i the purposes lor which they wero crested, certainly ' to refrain rrom any disintegrating invasion of them, i Suppose some other local subject of legislation to exist in several contiguous counties?a taluaiile tl-:hery for lnsiance, which required legislation for Its preservation or management?it weuld haruly bo claimed (as is claimed hnrej mat a Icgislativo enactment on thai ' subject, applicable to those counties alone, was hostile ti I the spirit of tbe constitution bseuso it wax so applicable i to moro than one county and less lhau the whole .State, ) but we are unable to see why It might Lot b-< claimed with equal propriety. This act provides a system or po I |m administration for a certain section of Ml State, in w hich the Legislature have decided that a *aoal ar l was required. We see nothing more than this In tho act i nertim-Li to the objection we are now eonsldciiug. The i fact that the section ot country thus provided for lies in one or luore counties, or embraces the whole of a county. or more than one, cannot, we think, bo important ui determining tho question rawed by this print. Tt i t not pro tenth d that there is anything ojprtsnert in ho cnnsU' lnconuttvtit in tbt* respect wittVTho art in question. The claim ?if ihe plaintiffs is only that the constitution, ha.iug racugmzca ami thereby sanctioned curtain governmental dlvbiour, or unties, towns, oltirs and villages, k : , other dlvi-lons tor governmental purposes aro inconsistent with it- interest, unauthorized, and by Implication forbtd den hy it.

Until IfciO, just one hundred yeara after the Mcntgo men* (.'rant, ami tii'ty years alter th<i Kevotutfcro, uo chungo, amendment* or alteration* in thorn worn m.ida or tbo ght of; nor was it supposed that tho transfer of U*a government from tho mouarchial to tho republican had impaired lo th? leant ext< r.t the municipal guarantee* tlum vouchsafed to ttie city of .Vow York The -fato had twice altereil Ha cm solution, adapting it to its improving commercial and more liberal political con I llrn, hut the charter af lilts city woe kinked upon as an almost icro I ih trumrnt, not to be touched, even though the neoemity for It, In many rocpacta sector I ho apparent; and when in t*'? tho legit lature adopted c ?rU;n additional provisions, tbejr wero only iub amendment* to the Ikmgan and Montgomorie charter*, the ptincipal elements of which were reta.oed at their original force, with all tho "franchisee, K'?nts, powers and privilege*" loft unimpaired. Tho subs*, point acts in 1Mb and U.".! were also amendments, and the charter Just pasied, tho gh it repeals all tho previous ones, re utllrms in direct terms tho Dengan and Vfuntgomor'o charters. tlum has the Iicghdature rer.ognU d ail our apctrnt chartered rights, which through a series of legislative enactments, for lil'ty years, hid boon frequently Inter! eroi with, too often hy pliant yielding upon tho part of tho peoplo tbcrnselrt*. Under this graut, now re alhrmed, we tin I rutttclent authority for the oi'y or New York to regulate Its own police affairs Independent of Shite tnterfurcncc or control. Upon a cIoho examination ofiu provisions, aided by the evidence of ita able commentator, Chancellor Kent, it Is Impoisible to come to any other oonclukion. Section 14 of the Imngan and Montgomerie cluirlers con fern u|ion the Mayo*, Aldermen and Cotnnotnlty.aml their Rucccmors forever,the mostamplo mid exclusive powers, useful or necesiuiry, for Jb" good rules nnd government of tho city. Uinucelloi^'Wiit says, (tee JHHh tote, Kent's nottss and Illustrations), comuieotnig on Uilii uectiou, " it would seem to contain a grant of ample powers Riiltlcient for all tho purposes of a wnll ordered police and lor ttio good government or the city la it* complicated concern* " Again, in nolo 31, lie nays ? " Whenever and wherever the Htatuto provisions do not apply precise and adequate an hority in tho given instance, the < ommtin Connci I can always resort to We never railing jsiwer under this charter, which gives brood author ty commensurate to every case Tho charter powors bave been so frequently and ao fully con firmed, denned, enforced and specially applied by legislative acts, that there seems to be no want of Jurisdiction from one source or the ether for every exigency " But the power of the Comtcon Oouacil to establish municipal watch or police ia clearly conferred by the twent) second section. It grants to tho Mayor, Aldnrmon and Commonalty of the my full power and authority to license or appoint watchmen, by warrant, uinter the common seal of tbo city, and to displace thorn and put otb< rs In their room, aud to add to or diminish the number 01 them. Tbo duty and power to pav tbo persona thus appointed is incident in the power granted to appoint. The twenty third section rives them power to order tho persona thus appointed to arrest and take up all and any rogues, vagabonds, stragglers and tdio and suapteious i>enons. The learned commentator already referred to says that "tho Common Council may appoint and diminish at pleasure all such poileo agents. Ttm control and regulation of tho city watch, like the appointment and regulation of cartmcn and porters, is a vary interesting nnd valuable deposit of municipal power, and one oM-nt'al to the peace, security and good government cf the city." If thi r *w?lnn* do not confer nnnn tho Common Council the po ?er to create a municipal police, then i know ol do word! In ibe Kngltsh language that con confer such power. Tb'-re < .ttnoi tx> doubt on the subject. Indeed, this power k* fully r? cogLlx-d and continued by the charter recently parsed, Independent of it* re enactment of the irmgun anil Moatgomerie charter*. In the Dirt section of that act it It declared that " tba Mayor, Aldermen and commonalty of tho city of New York itiall ooa inuc to be a body iwliuc and corporate. In fact and in name, by tho rame name, and shall bare perpetual tuiceetion with all grants, powers and privilege* heretofore had." litis |xtwer and privilege of ths corporation to protect and defend Ue per. n anil proj*rty of its citizens is now for the Aral t me called In question. If any complaint has been mode against !h< m, It wai for not exercising their power to its falls*! extent, for the 01 .<tion to exert its authority rather than the want of it. The Ix eton aad Moritgomerie charters now occupies a higher peoiuoa In regard to the city than it bits occupied at any t]**e since isvi, and may bo regarded as the orgai.s' laa? the Magna (l.orta?of our ctty, whereby tho bb? rty cf tl.e ritireu ts protected. Hie repealing clause of the rbaiter recently passed) In the first place repeats nit the < harlots and amaadmenta to charter* previously passed by the sever*' legislatures, so that anything cont a.ned ta theehartem or amendment* thai In anywise affected, mo lifted or repealed any part of the lkmgan and M.nlgni, .eie charter wm removed out of the way. ta tho second place, 11 repeals all laws or parts of law Inconatstrnt w.lh Keell ; and any wction contained Within itoilf would its .dearly 10'imsuitenl if It dbl repent, modify | or in ai.r affect the ituugaa and Mowtgoinerlo | ebartsro, Veeauee the I ogltloture In it* lost dying word*. , ?hm eaattinr law* for the go-. ernroc i:ts of this city, declared tt at not I. ing la its own enacts enl should he coo trued a* repealing, modifying or 10 any manner affecttnt? the I a (>g .* an 1 Munlgotn. no rharter, and U>e art further dec.'art* Uiat raid charter rha.l oonut.ue at.d rr main in fall forte.
