The filibustering on the constitutional convention sub ject, continued to-day, and occupied both Houses during the whole of the executive session*. The votes on the Lit Vojobn amendment indicate a victory for the liberal prin ciple in the Asaemoty, but a probable defeat in the Henale, the lattar being due to the efforts -of Senator Felgnr, who refuses to sup port nay plan but that reported by himself from the Judiciary Committee, and who shows strength enough to gather nmnnd him a sufficient force to carry him through. The result, as indicated now, is likely to be the appointment of conference committees who will d recuse the whole subject and probably In the end settle down to Mr. Littlejohn's plan, with slight amendment, as the most proper, feasible, liberal and judicious. TH5 80IKK1L un.l. PXAB. 1 foretold weeks ago that the commission business was likely to meet a cruel quietus from the present Le gislature, but 1 did not think that the work of strangu lation would begin so soon. To-dav one of the most barefaced but yet mdst sweeping and Important of the commission Jobs met with a sudden death In com mittee. I allude to Senator Mann lore's bill for the abolition of the existing school system of the metropolis. Every member of the Awrmbly School Committee has come to the conclusion, after a careful examination of the arguments pro and con, that the pre vailing system, all things considered. Is the best that can be contrived, and therefore that any Intermeddling would be improper and uncalled for. "Lot very well alone," they say; "we have inspected the school*. And those said to be the poorest quite good, and believe (be other classes of school* highly creditable. A svstem which can alt net Jews and Christian*. Catholics and Protestants, native and foreign, high and low. rtrh and poor, must be meritorious and should not be disturbed." Mr. Archer, chairman of the committee, will make a re port at an early day. giving his reasons why the existing system should not be meddled with. THS OlTSinU.Y XKjrSKDV niFFlCCt.TV.

There is a story here that Gridley has made an ar rangement with the Cifren-' Assoc atlon relative to his bill for a market commission. It Is said that the Citl sena' Association have agreed to drop the markets from their bills in consideration of Gridley striking out the objec-tlunshlo feature* of his measure. I do not think there m much in this Rtory, and I should state that Mr. Rands, chairman of the Citizens' Executive Committee, repudiates the bargain in Ma I have reason to think tbst a bill to Mil the markets and allow private market corporatious to be formed will shortly be in troduced. This will effeciually squelch Gridley and his innocent little market commission. THS IXTVWBIOH OF THK FIFTH AVTRCK. Senator Thomas Mnrpny will Introduce a bill to mor row for the extension of Fifth avenue to the Battery by the Central Berk Board, and placing that aveoue. when so extended, nnder the pernianeot jurisdiction and care of the Park Board, to be macadamized or otherwise improved as a thorough fare, from which railroad tracks are expressly excluded. The Jurisdiction of the stoops and courtyards will alto be Tested in the Park Board, and its peilfldical agitation in the Cnmmoa Council disposed of flnsllv. The bill also transfers the powers heretofore vested in the Common Council for ordering the opening of streets to the Park Board, so that the control of this subject may rest In some intelligent and rellahlo faculty, having the information, character and skill to deal with it hones!ly. The powers and duties of the existing city departments are not Interfered with, and there is no in novation in regard to the existing statutes as to the assessments on the legal proceedings.

I A large radical fair, which will be moved about the 8ute, originated for charitable purposes, waa opened this evening, in Franklin HaH, where General John A. Logan held forth on behalf of Mr. Barn one, the show* uan, and the whole radical republican ticket The meeting waa largely attended by abowmen and others of like profession, hundreds of whom are now in this neighborhood, and who will go on their usual summer campaign soon after the political aide shew now open In this district it cloeed. General Lagan being on interesting living cariosity took vary wall The interest of the exhibition was greatly enhanced by n large number of 8tate fossils, who oceapted seats on tbo platform. General Logan, In the course or his speech, spoke as follows:?It affords me much pleasure indeed to meet so many of the citizens of Connecticut tonight, and to be able U apeak regarding the political questions that art now before the country. It would seem that after the terrible struggle we have bad for the maintenance of this republic and the liberties of its people that now peac+at least should dawn upon us; tbat now at least tbe people should be permitted to be quiet; but such is not tbe case. Wc have a vary different state of things. Peace, It is true, hen been proclaimed in this distracted country by a distracted man?(applause)?but tbe great object far which tbe war was carried on has not been fully accomplished. There is but one way to have peace, and tbat Is to do right sad to do Justice to sll man kind?do right whether It pleases or displeases one section or another?the North or the Mouth. Tbe speaker then went into an ezamlnation of tbe origin and progress of the democratic and republican parties, and saidThis republican party is not so aged as the democratic party, and bonce not so sinful. (Applause.) This republican party was born at a fortunate time for this country. It came forth a man in all It* parts; it is the cbiid from tbe womb of liberty. When tbe speaker touched rather reveralv upon the democratic party some one behind him said "You wers a democrat, ' to which tbe General replied "We all do wrong some times in our lives." He said wheuever treason has shown Its head it had come out of tbe democratic party. "In speaking of the President, be used these words:?Mr. Johnson then became President?he m President. I recognize him as such. He said treason should be made odious, and traitors must lie punished 1 wish be had stuck to that sentiment. When be said that you all said "Amen!" Every honest, loyal man in this land endoraed him. He said he was going to make treason odious and punish traitor*. The demo crats were not Johnson men than?now they are. Boine one has changed. El I her th<> demo crats have changed or Andy has. How has he made treason odious? He has not hung Jeff Davis, ?or Brack inrldue nor Beauregard.

Hay and all others who have asked him and some who have pot asked h:m. lie has returned confiscated property to the value or millions, and bag attempted to force rebels Into Concress to mako laws for loyal people. What is Johnson's policy? He says that, under the constitution the rebels have a riclit to "be represented in Congress and to organise a government for themselves without the consent of Congress I assert tbat Andrew Johnaop has usurped power which he has no right to exercise. He is simple the KviyiuMve. Where did be get tne right to organize a Suae government V We say the rebel States have no rig ill to exercise the functions of a gov ernment i ccctiH" they have been guilty of treason. By rebelling tliey overturned their Mate goveanments and acted under another constitution. They were without rights when the war passed. Johnson 'says iliey were Stales I deny It. Soil, civilized people, political organization, a constitution and laws are necessary elements for a Slate. These laws must he acceptable to Congress. When the States were admitted they had these requisites. They loot them by the war, and when the war was over all that was left was dirt and traitors. There waa no State, and the man who asserts there was Is too big an ass to be President of an insurance company. | let alone being President or the t nited States.

If we ever effect pence we must have it because loyal men make the laws, expound the laws and execute tbo laws.

If the President violates tbe laws let ua have tbe nerve to remove him and to my that laws shall he executed though the heavens fall. 1 my to my democratic friends, never undertake to elect a Governor or Presi dent till this tbiug ie settled, and then organize a new party with a new set of men. The duty of loyal men ta to elect none but loyal men. Let tbe doubtful onee be placed on probation. We republicans do not claim Johnson now. The Philadelphia Convention, made up ef broken-down republicans, old-fashioned copperheads aod rebels, has died of treason. In God a name, and that oi our noun try and Hag, put none but true-hearted men on guard until this question le settled. In that way we shall restore tbe country and have pea-*.

All of a sudden this suburban retreat has loomed op as a gnat news centre, pmscsslng a goodly share of the spice ef life, aside from the wooden nutmegs and other spicy Inventions for which it ia so famous la addition to the political contest between tba rival Barnomt, one af whom la now strongly supported by ait tbo matrons in the State, who caaaot forget bow zealously he worked to latest them te exhibit their fat babies, there ta a In s oh oggie going on between the beUwers ia spiritual ism and those whom faith travels la an oppo site dDoatlim. In order te convince the former of their error there Is a respeetsMa show man, strange as it may worn, who well might be s rival of P. T. Barnum, if his Intenst and object wovo hot to conceal trick* Instead of exposing these, who has a foist looking boy named Rowe on exhibition, whom ho style# an astonishing physical manifestation medium. With a view to wit naming the wonderful feats of this gitted youth, a vary large body of Intelligent persons, ladies and gentlemen, assembled in Franklin Hall, ta this sity, two nights age. At Crst all the wonders which the mediums have aspirad to control wore executed in the usual humbugging man ner. Nothing was omitted. When It name to the pert whore Individuals among the nodienea were requested te ask questions, to which the "intelligence" would g-ve answers "from the spirit world," me young man, who had vary much the appearance of a newspaper corres pondent, Insulredr? "Whe will be elected to Congress from this district ?" Tbe spirit promptly spelled out, with rape, tbe follow ing.?"A Great Humbug " This of oourae produced laughter and applause. In order not to tasks tbe exhibition tedious a block of waod was plaoed In the medium's mouth, end the spirit was requested to answer In the same manner aa when on oartb, and not by raps. 80 far tbe nadir must bear In mind tbat Urn medium, when ia oommuulon with the spirit, was abut up ta a cabinet, as were the Davenport brothers whan they appeared in public and were pen forming. Incidental to the abnve I mar mention that the "la teHtgeaea" preeeai on this occasion was stated by the ma Baser of the show to be the asm# one formerly pos sessed by s renowned girt medium, Mtss Iaura V. kW And that the spirit was that of a poor soldier who lost his mortal Dart at tba first hauls of Boll run, near the place where Mr. Mumeil, <ff tbe Loadon Timet, witnessed tne horrors of the engagement. More meat tone were put and answers returned Mm ww*. which shewed that tbe spirit was very well posted on the character of the people and politics of this State. During all this time, when every feat known te tbe sptrhualletle order was being performed, a gray-headed committee ef citizens were proeenl upon the stage, and whan called upon fot their decision nnantmou?iv wo when eeuea upon ror tnetr dsctnon unanimously pro nounced "tbe thing" te he totally Incomprehensible, marvellous, while the verdaot ones am ng the audience confessed that thaw ekspticism was fairly staggered. Indeed, them was an ev ident amazement on the Conn tenances of an the uninitiated throughout tbe house. This result being accomplished, tbe exhibitor removed tbe front of tbe oeMnet, and the medium shewed in full view of every one present how all the physical manifestation* were obtained. Tbe tricks were so dexterous!? executed, and, beside, so simple, that there was a universal ory of '? Oh, pshaw I" and a gene ra) clapping of tuuid*. We mar safely my that the first of the performance was a neater humbug than any ever dreairud ef by l'hhteas T. Barnum, the showman. Had William & Barnum, tbe showman's political rival, only been present on U.ls occasion, the interest of the exhiMtion\would have been greaily enhanced, as ewrb would havff stood In such remarkable comparison from the standpoint' jtf analysis in character, Ac. The occa sion being on# designed especially for an erp> ss of a humbug. Mr PhisealT.

Although Fairflelg county was an titled to the nomination of the copperhead candi date for Congress from the Fourth district, and andar ordinary circumstances it would hare been glvon to William F. Taylor, of Danbury, you are perhaps aware that they hare changed their tactics and nominated a wealthy namesake of yours, simply for the purpose of idQ| lite money igtinil you.

I am credibly Informed, the greenbacks are being freely cir culated by hie friends I write to ask what your inten tions are in regard to counteracting this effort of the oopperhead party. Do you Intend to fight Are with flrei j The day of election to fhsi approaching, and we are cer tain of your sacaess, as all our friends are wide awake. Respectfully yours, I Kit. aaanjo's hsplt. BainusroKT, Feb. 23, 1M7. ?? , Esq.?Dbav Sis?Your kind letter of the 20th lost, has caused roe painful emotions. I now wish to say, once for an, that under no oouceivable circum stances will I permit a dollar of mine to be used to pur-* chaae a vote, or to Induce a voter ts act contrary to hit honest convictions. The Idea that the Intelligent, reading men of New England can be bought like sheep In the ahamoles, and that the sacred principles which have so far guided them la the terrible struggle between liberty and slavery can now, in Una oventfol hour of the national existence, be set up at auction and knocked down to the highest bidder, seems to me a* preposterous as it Is shameful and humiliating. But If U ts possible that occasionally a degraded vote rean thus be Induced to ? wall his birth right far* mess of pottage," God grant that I nuty be a thousand times defeated sooner than permit one grain sf gold to be accursed by using it so basely. I will not believe that American citizens san lend themselves to the contemptible meanness of sapping the very life-blood of our noble Institutions by encouraging a fatal precedent, which ignores all principle, and would eoon pr vent any honest man, howevtr distinguished for bis intelligence and loyalty, from representing hto dia - trict In our national councils. None could then succeed except unprincipled vagabonds, who. by the lavish ex penditure of money, would debauch and degrade the tivemen whose votes they coveted. No, sir! Grateful as I am for the distinguished hen or of receiving a unanimous nomination for Congress from the loyal Un.on partv in my district, I have no aspira tion for that blvh position If It is only to be attained by bringing into disgrace the noble privilege of the free elective franchise. Think for a moment what a deadly weapon la being placed in j^e hands of tyrants through out the civilized world, with which to destroy auch apostles of liberty as John Bright and Garibaldi, if It can be said with truth that American citizens have become se corrupt and degraded, so lost to a Just estimate of the value and true nobility of tba ballot, that it to bought and sold for money. toy dear sir, any party that can gain a temporary as cendancy by such atrocious means, not only poisons the body politic of a free aud impartial government, but is also sure to bring swift destruction upon itself. And so it should be. 1 am unaccustomed to political life, and know but little of the manner of conducting a campaign like the pres ent I believe, however, it is customary lor the .-date Central Committee to assess candidates, in order that they aball defray a proper portion of tba expenses in curred for speakers and documents lo enlighten the voters upon the political issues of the day. To that ex tent I am willing aud anxious to be taxed; for "light and knowledge" are always desired by the friends of buuao rights and of public order. But 1 trust that all money used for any other pur poses in the pending election will come from the pockets of those who now (as during the rebellion) are doing their utmost to aid traitors, and wbo, still unrepenting, aro vindictively striving to accomplish at the ballot box what their Houthorn allies failed lo accomplish on tbe tleid ol Iwttie. If any of our friends misapprehend my true sentiments upon tbo sobtect of bribery, corruption and fraud, I bope you will read them this letter. Truly yours, P. T.
