Thf Nrw*> A large meeting of the solid democracy of the Twentieth ward was heid in Thirty-fourth street, between Eighth and Ninth avenues, last evening, for the the purpose of taking measures to eflect the repeal of the odious enactments of the recent legislature of this State. Not less than five thousand people were present. Speeches were made by Messrs. Chauncey, of Saratoga, Col. Alex. Ming. Conrad Swackhamer, Hennessj, of the Fifth ward, Connolly, of the Twentieth ward, and others. The meting was very enthusiastic, and did not adjourn un'il after ten o'clock. As the weather grows hotter our municipal quarrel increases in intensity and bitterness. Tne Street Commissioner trouble has undergone no especial Change since Saturday, excepting that, previous to the rising of the Court of Common Pleas yesterday, Mr Sickles applied for and obtained another injunction, on a supplemental proceeding, to restraii Dev lin, Conover, Sheriff Willett, D. D. Field and Harry Bertholf from interfering with the books of the Street Commissioner's office. Mayor Wood sent a message to the Common Council laat evening, transmitting a communication from Mr. Devlin, detailing the manner of his arrest, and the conduct of Mr. Conover upon taking possession of the Street Commissi ner's office, in order that some action may be taken in the matter. The Board of Aldermen sent the documents to the Counsel to the Corporation, ; and the Cooncilmen referred them to a select committee of five. The habeas corpus in the case of | Mr. Devlin will be dtcided to-day. The application for au injunction restraining the paying of (190,000 to the Metropolitan Police Com- , missiouers, was argued yesterday before Judge Inprulmm. A decision will be rendered to-day. The j Commissioners have established the telegraphic apparatus at the station bouse in Franklin street, and axe about to make war ou all vagrants and street beggars. The vacancy occasioned by the resigns' ticm of Mr. Draper has not been filled. Governor King arrived in town yesterday to consult with reference to this and other business.

The document was laid on the tabic. It wm the intention of the Commiaaionera of Health to have taken a trip down the bay yesterday, 1 or the purpose of lnapecting the upper and lower Qnarantine anrhoragea, and take a look at the fwguine Point hospitals. As several of the mem )jer* were unable to go yesterday, the proposed visit was postponed till the fifth of August. The Board of Health met yesterday. A communication was received from the masters of the ; brigs St. Michaels. Brothers, Col. Penmman and Lucy i At wood. and the schooner Norman, lying at the new Quarantine grounds, setting forth tnat there is so sickness on board their vessels, enumerating some of tbe reasons why cargoes cannot be discharged at fceguinc's Point, and asking permission to proceed to the old Quarantine and discharge. The subject was referred to a special committee, but afterwards a resolution was adopted allowing the Health f (fiber to use his discretion in such cases. Since tbe Health Officer has initiated tbe rule of | compelling stevedores and lightermen employed upon q-.armn lined vessels to give bonds obliging them to remain a spec died time within the Quarao- 1 tine limits, it bus been found impossible to obtain a 1 mfficient force of stevedores and lightermen to at | tend to the lighterage of cargoes of vessels detained af Quarantine. Considerable inconvenience is expe- \ tie need by shippers n c onsequence. There are six verse Is now at the lower Quarantine anchorage, and j twenty-six vessels at the old Quarantine.

The letters of cur correspondent at St. Paul.

At tad accounts the democrats were in a fair way of oat-Danonrring their opponent*. Rochester and its vicinity was yesterday visited liy a terrific hail and rain storm, and It is feared the civp* sustained considerable injury. An Interesting legal question was decided recently 1 l>y Judge Wellea. of the Supreme Conrt. at Rochester. in a case when a prisoner charged with drunk enness had refused to be sworn as to the cause of . each intoxication. The defendant was brought be fore Judge Welles, on a writ of habeas corpus, and diw barged on the ground that the Justice had no authority to imprison him. Justices of the Peace throughout the State are interested in this result, as cues are frequently arising of a nature similar to the one jnat disposed of. If Judge Welles is cor- ' rect, Justices will be cautious aooat commuting to prison persons charged only with "passive disobedience" to an otder of the Court. The case of Capt. C<*>way, o." the ship Switzer land, was dec.ded yesterday by Commissioner Bridgham. The Commissioner stated that he had m/1 nn writtiin rifw-iiiwin in (Ha ranao V\n( (Hat he had carefully rcvit wed the whole testimony, ami that from the eondurt of the complainant while oo hoard the ship Hiriticrland. from her silence for a long time after the termination of the voyage, and from the testimony of the three witnesses on the part of the defence (exdoeire of the letters introduced l>y the defendant subject to the objection of lb" I'nitod states Attorney) he. the CoamisakKer, wan satisfied that no violence had been committed on the person of the complainant, and that the ch ?rge of rape had not been snstmned. The complaint was, therefore, d ?mir?ed. and the defer dan' di?cbarged. Mr Child*, chief ma'.e of the packet ship Mercu- ' ry, who ?u charged with the manslaughter of a passenger on boftrd thftt Teasel, while on the voyage from Liverpool, wu yesterday discharged from costody by Comnrtmiooer Betta, who, alter hearing the testimony offered, dismiaeed the complaint. warrant waa iaaued yesterday by the United State* Diatri :t Attorney againat a oertain captain of a ship recently arrived at this port for bringing a Blare to thia port from the coaat of Afrlsa, which ia a violation of the fourth section of the act of April 20,1818, which prohibits the importation of Blares in'o thia State. Fire Marshal Baker last evening presented hia semi annual report to the Board of Aldermen. It was received and ordered on file. The report embraces the occurrence of all fires and alarms of fires for the preceding aiz months, up to the 31st day of May, together with the amount of losses and the amounts paid by underwriters.

What Is to bs Uunel Corrupt and scheming and weak minded as iuk: 1/ i:i??aiuir v>uitu iiu|rj>iu ua tuia im u upolis the Metropolitan Police bill, we hardly think that, could they have foreseen the momentous consequences of that pie ce of legislation, it would ever have been enacted We cannot coa" ceive it possible that ordinalily intelligent men from the rural districts, or anywhere else, would for a moment harbor any intention or desire to degrade and ruin the interests of the great city, in whose glory, freedom and prosperity the citizens. not only of this State but of the United States, should feel gratification and delight. And yet who fails to see now that the tendency of that law is not only to degrade the city and to disfranchise her people, but also to injure materially her great commercial and property interest*? He must be wilfully blind to reason or destitute of intelligence who will deny that the condition of anarcby and riot in which we have been drifting for the last three weeks is ruinous to the trade and commerce of New York, as it is disgraceful to her reputation. Tae necessary tendency of this state of things is, as we have said before, to deter merchants and pleasure seekers from visiting this metropolis, and|to drive away and keep In the country the lamilies of wealthy residents. This is at once a disgrace and a serious injury to our city. Whatever may have been the faults of that old police system that was annihilated by the act of the Legislature. all candid persons will admit that, due allowance being made for the small new* ol the force, it was highly efficient. The peace of the city was preserved in all quarters. If rowdyism showed itself it was promptly subdued. Peaceable citizens were not then, as they are now, iabie to be attacked and lieaten in open day. in the most populous streets, and before the eyes of the police officers too timid and Inefficient to interfere. Property was as safe in New York as in any other city of its magnitude in the wor'd. But all that is changed now. Associations of brawlers disturb the peace with impunity atd overawe the new flock of police. Riots break out from day to day, and the majesty of the law is spurned and contemned. Outrageous mobs attack and demolish a factory in the very teeth ol a large police force, and no effort is made to prevent them. When the police do venture to show any pluck at all, they do so not in the character of police officers, but rather in the character of adherents of an opposite faction?they act. not as guardians of the peace, but as combinations of Plug i'glieg or Dead llnbhita miirht ln> mtirviwd in act with tlinlr <>*. pedal enemies arrayed against them. Instead of sternly and determinedly seizing on the ringleaders of a riot, they draw up in battle array, and?a* described in Capt. llartt '* mock heroic reports?dash forward into the ranks of the enemy giving and receiving thrus'? and blows. Who ever before beard of police acting in auoh a way? And yet *uch b> the new system of police tactic* to which, unfortunately, we are now delivered up. It is plain that this condition of affair^ must not tie allowed to continue. Toe city paya for ? police force, not for an organization of fighting nun. But to all Intents and purposes we would be just as well off If we fhould take ioto the service of the ci'y a Plug Ugly a*ociation, a Dead liibbit club, ut the Empire Guard. We hare had etotigb experience of the near force to impress us with that conviction. We don't want a regime ut of Albuiy janissaries. for our u"? police just amounts to that, and no more. We want steady, orderly, experienced men, who know their duty as officers and will not shrink from performing it. The question Is. bow can we get such a tUmdrralum* That is a momentous question at the present time. It is a question wuich presses itself cm the attention of irvery good citixeo. more especially on the attention of that numerous dans of pertoDS who represent hundreds of millions worth of property in the city, and whose property is now at the mercy of the thieves and outlaws, w ho arc enjoying a complete saturnalia in our midst. Of course no improvement is possible for the pre sent, except what may be effected und?r the Metropolitan Police act itself. That act has been declared constitutional, and. until abrogated or repealc d, we must make the most of It. It is idle, foolish and absurd to be raising up petty little oostacies in n? way. or to attempt to tbwait its full execution by ihe legal quibbles of pettifogger* The battle was fought in op<?n fi'ld. The issue was faitly and broadly made I and those who were on the side of municipal tights wete defeated. That campaign is ended. aLd it is t ot creditable for us to continue the fight by guerilla skirmishing. We hare entered on u new campaign. The issue is made on a broader ba*i* than before. The battlo fl?'l<l is to l?e. not the 1< g?' forum, but the ballot box. But until this second battle is rfrcided, let us. for our own sike. do tin best we can with the means that we pos- <a.

We have also seen it asserted In another black republican organ?the Courier and Enquirer - that if If ajor Wood had lifted hie finger in the Seventeenth ward he could have stopped the riot Now there is some force in theae suggestions, although they do come from hostile partisan journals. There is no doubt that the Mayor possesses great executive abilities. He is a man of action, and of judgment, too. He has had besides a good deal of experience in the management of a municipal police. The present set of Commissioners, An tko nfhnr haml oro ca fur of louof oa tba sfu_ ties of that office are concerned?a set of noodles and imbeciles. The only practical, business, com mon sense man tbey bad among them, Simeon Diaper, bas thrown up the office, disgusted with the puerilities of his associates. Now, therefore, more than ever is the presence of a practical, experienced man in the Board absolutely necessary. We do not ourselves see why Mayor Wood should not take his seat there. The public safety demands that be should. The great pnblic interests of the city have been reposed in his care, and he should not, through any proinptingB of offended dignity, be nntrue to or regardless of that trust. Mayor Powell, of Brooklyn, has recognized the call of duty, and has taken his seat as a Commissioner. We hope that Mayor Wood will be guided by the same feeling, and act similarly. His constituents. and all who have on interest in thenro tection of the peace and property of the metropolis, t xpect him to pursue this course. We trust that their ju?t expectations will aot be disappointed. Sim Draper's Resignation?Who is to Sceceei) Him '?Mr. Draper having resigned his post as Police Commissioner, the question arises as to who shall be his successor. The Board of Commissioners have power to fill vacancies for the residue of a term, although the powtr to appoint for the full term resides only in the Governor. Several names have been mentioned in e.onneetinn with the office?among others the name of General Hall, of the State militia One of the arguments used In favor of this gentleman is that he is a military man and a strict disciplinarian?qualities which, it is paid, would be useful in the organization of a police force. No doubt such qualities would be. if allied to other qualifications, of great service in the Commission. We doubt, however, whether those other qualifications would be found to exist in this candidate. General Hall is, we believe, a strict disciplinarian?so strict as to have earned for himself the title of a martinet. And however desirable an acquisition to the Police Board a good disciplinarian might bethere is no doubt that a martinet would be anything but a desirable acquisition. Besides, we understand that General Hall does not po*css in a very high degree those other more ueceseory attributes, coolness, tact, discre tion. and a large share of good practical common stupe. We arc told that he is a man of no little vanity and self-conceit But worse than all, if he were to get the appointment, he would be the mere puppet of his nephew. Mr. Oakey Hall, the District Attorney o' thin city and county; and Mr. Oakey Hall, however he may be destined to shine in "Old Trot" literature, and in dramas on and off the stage, is little likely to make himself a great name either as public prosecutor or Grand Vizier to a Police Commissioner. IIe has talents of a certain order; but those talents would be more appropriately brought into play as a stage manager, or censor of plays, than as District Attorney or the adviser of a Police Commissioner. But if a military education and a habit of enforcing discipline be a tine 'jua non in a candidate for the vacantCommissionership, why should I not the choice fall upon General Sandford ? He is a good disciplinarian?a man of experience, good sense, suavi'y of manners and liberal views. No one is better acquainted than he with the wants and requirements of the city: and few. we | think, would be found to bring into the Board better or higher qualifications for the office than he. If, then, the vacancy occasioned by the reI turement of Sim. Draper is to be filled by a military man, by all means let the choice fall on ' General Sandford. If, however, a military education be not indispensable in a cardidute for the office, we do not know a civilian on whom the choice might better I fall than Mr. Hueemeycr. This gentleman. It will lie recolhctcd. was once Mayor of the city, and executed the responsible duties of that office with srreat credit to himvlf and service to the ! city. Like General Stodford. he baa large experience, pood common sense. sauvity of manner?, and thOK! other high qualities which make a man popular. We doubt wh?-th?r the Commissioner? could make a 1m iter selection than that of ex Mayor llaveinoyer. Rotation in Offick - Mn. Pikrcc'h >n*Lnmats?Our special despatch from Washington on officeholders. Ac . shows that between the ins and the outs, in the struggle for the spoils, the administration bar no test. As early as the time of Jefferson tiiat observing statesman had disj covered that few officeholders die. and none resign. This can hardly be said of Mr. Pierce's diplomat* in Europe, for several of them have resigned, very much to the relief of Mr. Bu, rhanan : but some of the most conspicuous still hold on. very much to the embarrassment of Mr. Buchanan. Mr. Mason, at Pari*, for instance, of all men. should have been the first to set a good example, by gracefully vacating his post; but of all the lot of our Ministers in Europe, he seems the mo?t inten? upon holding fast But what Is the <1ll(v nf \f r HurKanan * f'Ltario tn oarer ntif iKa "-V?? >-?. ..7 V/?? ?' rule of rotation that be has adopted, aod not to make fbli of ooe and tlo*h of another, unless for the | tx*t of good reuona.

Mr. Mason, with all others of the diplomatic corps of Mr. Pierce who will not take he hint, should he dismissed without further eretEooy. inasmuch a# their place* can lie filled with men just as good. If not letter. than themselves. At all events, the idea that a mere office, holder, once fairly established in a fat place, has a permanent claim as a peuslonrr upon the treasury, is perbetly absurd But above all. it is mo ngni arm me otiiy 01 every administration to relict it# own airenta. foreign and domestic, and fo make (he fat old drone* io the hire give way to w?tne of the working bee* outride Rotution in tbe tulc: atd let it be enforced where it I* not r'rpccted.

We have no Dukes, Earls and Counts, no golden rods ccr gentlemen uslera, bedecked and bedizened 1 with gold lace, crosses stan and garters; no mob of gentry to take their place in the solemn mummery,

and pity their parts with a gravity that could only attend the great business of the wearer's life. The rough and busy people have no pomp in them and so we fail whenever we undertake to get up a procession. But if as a people we faii iu a pageant, as a 1 ? u i:t,A u. people we txcei iu t uuu.uug u c uu n, nc run after It: we rejoice aid take part in it; we reproduce it ia city after city, as long as the novelty lasts, and no longer. But during this time we are perfectly sincere in our worship of the humbug, and in proof of our sincerity we lavish our time, our money and our public men on it. Where was there ever a greater humbug than the reception we gave to Kossuth, and before him, to Dickens! We were perfectly sincere in it, however, for a time ; but these keen witted fellows soon saw through our national bent, and, returning to Europe, abused us roundly for it. It was this national characteristic that [ formed the success of Bsrnom and Jenny Lind. We were sincere in that, too ; and we stuck to I Baroum just as long as he had any new and strikiiur nhase of humbug to present to us, though I ?? | we bad found out and stamped him in his true character long betore. [ And it is not in exotic humbug that we excel? I we have our domestic humbugs, and nothing is done without it. In politics we must hare a " bleeding Kansas'1 or a " dissevered Union in philanthropy, an "Uncle Tom1' or a "White Slave'1; in religion, a Beecher or a Brigham Young, Our public men are full of humbug, for if it is not innate to them, they assume it, in order to succeed. No better evidence is wanted ot this fact than the late proceedings of Harvard College, in Cambridge. There was Mr. Winthrop, with his humbug about the alma mater, knowing full well that ot the thinking and doing men of this country not one iu a thousand ever saw even the outside of a college, while of those that* have seen the inside not one in a thousand has ever done anything. There was President King, of Columbia College, with his humbug of "the blood of the Kings," the great progenitor of which almost heard the fourd of the battle of Bunker Hill?and that is all. Then there was Mr. Everett, too?a brilliant statesman, a brilliant orator and a brilliant humbug, who skips over the country with one oration in bis breeches pocket, and fifty invitations to deliver it Some of our public humbugs, like Tom Beaton, undertake to save the Union, and take out a copyright for it. We bad too. therc^ as we bad had on former occasions, a little diplomatic humbug. Some years ago Sir Henry Bulwer. who was a sort of dandy to literature and a Pelham in diplomacy, thought he had discovered our national weakness; and he did. but he did not find out that it only runs upon the surface. So he went over the countiy delivering fiowery speeches, fall of humbng; but as soon as the novelty wore off he was played out, and be could never understand why. Lord Napier has hit us in our national vein, and treated us to a little humbug ou his part, and very dexterously rattled his ancestor's " Napier bones" at Harvard. In his late speech, as in his previous one, there is blended a vein of his own national trait, a strong, practical, Scotch common sense, that takes very well with us, too, and is more lasting than the humbug in the public appreciation; for as soon as the former has lost its novelty it is thrown aside. It would perhaps be well for him to reflect ou this, and whether the practical common sense of our people requires much more of this sort of thing. His first speech was an excellentone, and his second is in good taste and place. They will do him service in the " silent craftof diplomacy, if he does not repeat them too often. The philosophy of all this love of humbug on our part is. that we are eminently a practical people, and desire to bring at once into practice every new idea that strikes us. Does a man promise to do something great for his race or his country, does he bring forward a new idea, a new invention, or a new amusement, we take him at his word, and praise him, and parade him. and tlien go homo to nee it it will pay. ll we find that it will pay. it in immediately put at woik and becomes a part of that silent economy that is working out our national progress, while we are again intent upon another novelty. Such is our round, and in it the humbug of alma mater, or the patriotic blood of a patriotic sire goo* for nothing bejond a sort of family pride with those who wear tbem. New York amo PhiVapki.phia Newspaper Movement*.?Our telegraphic advices of this morning's issue furnish ua some funny and very significant tacts in relation to certain newspaper movements In this city and Philal deipbia It thus appears that the New I York Doth/ Mew* is reduced to the last dying resort of democratic subscriptions that the Time* is mano uvring to supplant the Mew*? that the Fspru* is in a transition state, and from a Know Nothing caterpillar Is ambitious to come out a full blown democratic butterfly ; and that Yven the old Cammercutl Adverlmr is "bobbing around " for a place under the sheltering wings of Mr. fluchanan's administration. These arc good signs in behalf of the administration ; and as far as regards the new editorial joint stock combination of the Ktminj Mirror, that will speak for itself. It is a nice little familj concern?starts upon a nice little family platform, so very modest withal, that no reasonable democrat can resist it. unless he may have some other axe to grind. The Forney newapaper movement at Philadelphia is quite another thing. We concur with our Philadelphia correspondent that there is mischief in it, and nothing but mischief, to the Pennsylvania democracy. It is the entering wedge to the same splits, and squabble*, and fights ami eternal wrangling* among the party in Pennsylvania a* those which have made the New York democracy?city and 8tate?very little better than a public nuisance. We are not just yet prepared for this. It is about as much as we can do pending this "heated term." to manage the Southern secessionists, the Seward dlaorganizert. the Kansas agititore. the Mormone, thp Central American qioation, our municipal affaire. and the fag end* and rag. tag and bobtail of Tammany llall and the New ^ ork democracy. Add to thiw heaTj business calendar in the dog days a split among the PoDneyltania democracy on account of Colonel Forney, and we shall be rery apt fo lone our patience with all three email l?eer politicians, right and left. North and South. K-ist and Weat. In the meantime we call upon the administration to crush out tfxsg symptom* of disagrd *ud rebellion in the Pennsylvania eanrp without further delay; for what will be the ate of attempting to harmonise the democracy in New York, while they are breaking up the democracy in PhiladelphiaT Finally, it is Derbane full time to ! let the demoralized democracy go to the dogs, and to settle the administration upon a new conservative party, embracing the solid Union masses ot the people throughout the country; for we most come to this at lust. But still we ask for an armistice till after the August elections. Signs of U??s Futurs In Kurops, We reported yesterday, as part of the news from Europe, that insurrectionary movements bad been with difficulty suppret-Bed in the south of Spain; that troubles had broken out in Italy* apparently with a view to the expulsion ot the Bourbons and the Austrians; and that the three Paris circonacriptions which had not elected dejmth at the last election had made a choice of representatives among the opponents of Louis Napoleon's government. We have reason to believe that these events, disunited as they appear in point of time and space, were in reality different narts of the namo arhnmo. and intimately connected together. Nine and a half years have el&peed since the last revolution took place in Europe. That revolution disturbed an era of quiet which had lasted eighteen years, and which had succeeded to an era of quiet lasting fifteen. According to precedent we should have no revolutions in Europe till 1866-70, or thereabouts. But however faithful to precedent in matters of principle, history deviates widely from precedent in chronological points. No two successive eras are exactly alike in point of time. The general rule in France is that a revolution is effected by each successive generation, but that no generation makes two revolutions?one having taught it the cost of such frolics. But in these later times, men live faster than they used to do, and the events that used to fill a generation are now compressed into ten years or less. Perhaps this rapidity of movement may have its effect on revolutions. At least one-half the revolutions which F.iirnrw has won tinvp hpon lirorinitAtpd hv finan cial disorder?. The finaucial troubles of the kingdom overthrew Louis XVI.; financial embarrassments killed the Directory; financial straits precipitated the fall of the elder Napoleon; a financial deGcit was the prime secret of the ruin of Louis Philippe. There is a financial sore at the bottom of the present French regime. When the present Emperor ascended the throne, he found the national finances in a disastrous condition, and undertook to cure them by creating fictitious wealth in the shape of bonds and promises to pay, which depended for their value on an increase of wealth which no hutn&u power could command. The remedy had a primary success. France, always a speculative country, took hold of credits mobillere and other like schemes with ardor, and every person in the kingdom from the pirrs to the de enfi began to speculate In stocks. This has now lasted four years?a long period for an era of speculation and inflation. A short while ago, when the speculation became obviously absurd, the Emperor tried to check it by repressive edicts; but he found the task beyond his power, and so tar receded from his desiim that he authorized an increase in the capital of the Bank of France. That institution has for the past eighteen months been buying specie at the cost of about twice its usual profits; with a result which will be shortly seen. The wine crop has tailed for several consecutive years; the silk crop has not been as good as usual latterly; even tbe harvests have fallen short of their average. Evei7thing in France points to a proximate financial convulsion. Thus, though the accustomed period has not yet arrived, there may be plausibility in the idea that the movements in Italy and 8pain. coinciding in point of time with the unexpected revival of tbe spirit of the Paris republicans, indicate a rapid approach of the old revolutionary times. Politics in Spain and Italy are in a large measure? and have been for years?dependent upon the politics of France ; the revolutionaries of Madrid and Florence or Rome take their cue from their friends in Paris. The Emperor his played his whole stake on the success of his experiment. He has set his wholo soul to work to win the favor of the people of the country parts, who are always half a century behind the leading mind* of tln? nation nnd hna trnsl d pntirrlir to bis bayonets, to his subterranean passages. to hi* wide streets and swarms of soldiers to keep the people of the city of l'aris In order. The result appears to show that he has not been entirely i successful. The people of the agricultural dis , tricts?like their talhers?vote as they are biddm; but the |?eoplc of the city Intimate pretty plainly that nothing but the bajonet keeps them in check. And the movements in Italy and Spain show that nothing is wanting there but the signal from France. Altogether, the moral of these event* is that the masses in Europe are as republican as they | ever were, and that the Napoleon dynasty will last so long as the Emperor preserves bis life and health ; but no longer.
