THE EAST. The mad steamship Colorado reached Sao Francisco yesterday morning aftar completing the round trip from California to China and Japan and return voyage, under the meet favorable circumstances. The Colorado landed one hundred and seventy-Ore passengers, the American and European malls and a fall and valuable cargo. She brought vary late and late resting newa from China and Japaa, dated at Bong Kong tbe 11th, and Yokohama the tTth of February, which haa been telegraphed to the Hsuls by oar special correspondent, and appear* In oar ooiamns this morning. A fnU Japanese commission, deeUned for Washington, to arrange a naval contract, landed at San Francisco from the Colorado. The Mikado or Bpirttoal Emperor of Japan la dead, and court of the new Tyooon or temporal ruler le In mourning. The governmental course of the Tyooon gives satisfaction to the foreigners. He has formally In vited all the naval officers serving la the ports of the empire to visit him. The war with Choeia is suspended Tor a season. Trade was very dull In Yokohama. The brother of the Tycoon sailed In a French steamer for Far is to isprseent the Sovereign at the great Exhibition. The British Minister at Japan is disposed in be early with the Tycoon. From China we are informed that the authorities did not reply te the not* of Captain Sohnfaklt, of tho United States steamer WacbuseU. relative to the murder of the orew of the ship General Sherman. The American com mercial flag will aoon predominate on the Chinese waters. The French were to build a abort lino or railroad from bhaagbao. The growing interest of Franco In tho East renders England Jealous. Theptnsetan fleet was about to mil from China. Goods for export were firm at Hong Kong. The United Slates steamers Hartford, Sheaan doab and Aahnalet were at Hong Kong, and .the Waehu mats was at Shanghae. A targe quantity of gunpowder stored en a hnlkship In the harbor of Hong Kong exploded, causing the lose Qt manr Uvea and the destruction of a large amount of property.

A mealing of the Board of Education took placo laat efonlng, at which a oommuui atioa waa received from lha Board of Health suggesting that the pupils and teachers In the public schools should be vacotnated. there was also a communication received urging the establishment of nautical schools in the city. Both documents were referred to committees. The question of repealing bylaw fixing the minimum amount of teachers' salaries at tano a year came up, and was finally referred to the Committee on Mylawa. A second private meeUng of the l'ea?ody trustees was held at the Fifth Avenue Hotel yesterday. A banquet will be given by Mr. Peabody on Friday evening. The Irish enthusiasm in this city has all subsided, and the late rebellion In Ireland Is conceded to have been a disgraceful failure. The only party who receive any attention are those who favor an invasion of Canada. Several meetings have been held ou the subject of an early invasion, and steps are being taken that look some what like work. Our St. Albans correspondent says that several United States army officers had arrived and passed through that village lately, although no troops had corns as yet. It was rumored, however, that n force had bean forwarded from Fort Warren. The militia officers about the village had boon consulting as to the amount of equipage and ammunition needed to fit ont certain oompaniee for service. On the other band several bands of Irishmen had arrived, well equipped with everything requisite for a tour, and bearing traces of an undoubted tendency towards Fenlanlsm. Dr. George Beakley, of West Twenty-fourth street, end Mrs. Cole, or West Twenty-fifth street, were ar rested on Tuesday for alleged murder and abortion on the person of Mrs. Edward Kimball, widow of Major Kimball, of Hawkins' Zouaves. Mrs. Kimball died at the Irving Honse on the 28th of January last, and was burled at Providence, & I., a bnrtal permit being obtained on the certificate of Coroner Gamble, granted by that officer on the verdict of e jury that death was caused by hemorrhage and congestion of the bowels, the result of an accidental falL On the 14tb of March, however, another inquest was held on the body by the Coroner In Providence, which resulted in suspl - clons of foul play against the deceased, and finally led to the arrests of the physician and nurse attending her In her last illness. They were both committed without bail. The argument in the Supreme Court, Chambers, on the motion to set aside the injunction in the suit of of Christopher Pullman against the Mayor, he., restrain ing the execution by the Corporation of the lease, for the nse of the municipal Law Department, of Fernando Wood's premises, N'oa 116 and 117 Nassau street, at a rental of $18,000 per annum, has been further adjourned anil! the 27th Inst. An order of arrest was granted yesterday in the Supreme Court, Chambers, in the case of Isaac E. Drey fuss, by his guardian, against Wm. Kiefer, in which the plaintiff claims $2,000 damages for personal injuries at the hands of the defendant. Bail was fixed at $600. Kiefer has since been arrested on a criminal warrant for the same offence. In the case of Wolf Benedict vs. Bernhard Wolf, which waa an action in the Supreme Court, Circuit, for alleged falae imprisonment, laying damages at $2,000, the court, after all the evidence was taken, dismissed the com plaint on the ground that there was not sufficient prob able cause for the charge made by defendant, and upon which the plaintiff had been arrested. In the Supreme Court, Circuit, part 3, a ault was brought yesterday by Wm. H. Post vs. Willot Leaman to recover $4,700, which the plaintiff alleges he had been induced to invest in real estate and oil stocks in the Penney vania oil region through the representations of the defendant. The plaintiff states that the property 8ubeoquently tarned ont to be almost valuclea. Case ?till on. In Common Pleas, Chambers, yesterday, a motion to vacate the arrfist of George W. Chadwick, late Vice President of the North River Bank at Hoboken, waa argued before Judge Cardoso, who reserved his decision. In the Superior Court, Trial Term, Theo. Griffiths re covered $346 10 from E. C. Schenck for an illegal seizure of his goods. The grand jury were discharged yesterday la the General Sessions. Charles Lloyd, who pleaded guilty to en assault with intent to malm, waa sent to the State prison for ten years. John Shannon, who attempted to ?ommlt en infamous oSsnne upon a little child wee sen tenced to the State prison for five yean. A Frenchman named Charles de Villi era, n professor of languages by occupation, waa, en Tuesday lest ar rested by officer Strauss of the Central office. The prisoner Is charged with having swindled e number of persons by purchasing goods end giving In payment therefor valueless checks. The stock market was weak and unsettled yesterday. Gold was steady, opening at 134jend closing at 134 The steady ruling of the gold premium prevented any material change la values of Imported merchandise, whioh, however, still continued qnlet, though In some commoditiea n fair business was transected. Domestic produoe generally ruled firm. Flour was e shade firmer end more active. Wheat wee steady. Corn was la a Sc. lower. Oats likewise declined la a 2a Pork cloeed firm. Beef was firmer, while lard ruled heavy, though moderately active. Whiskey was doll and nominal. Freights were scarcely sa firm. Naval stores ruled qnlet, though firm. Petroleum was firmer.

(he Tvople f Tbo newspaper organs and slump orators on both sides in Connecticut are making a pro digious hiss over their old party platforms, principles and records, including all the usual tricks of noisy demagogues in whitewashing their own ticket and in blackening that of their opponents. The rebellion, treason, copper hoadism, Southern reconstruction, Stato rights, negroes' rights and negro suffrage are the lead ing elements of these party discussions; but in the midst of all this "sound and iury, signi fying nothing," the real Issue before the people ?till looms up into bold relief. The issues of the war for the Union and the Issues of Southern reconstruction, the penalties of rebellion and the civil and political rights henceforth of the black race under the constitution and laws of the United States are substantially settled. They can no longer be affected by a Connecti cut election one way or the other. In fact, the only general and practical issue before the people of Connecticut now is one of political morality, involving the moral character or the State, the good name and influence of our popular institutions abroad and strongly sug gesting "a decent respect for the opinions of mankind." Barnnm, the showman, as a candidate for Congress, brings this great issne of morality, decency and propriety before the people of Connecticut in a bold and palpable shay. Let him and the general ticket with which he is associated be elected, and hereafter, at home or abroad, when the question Is asked, "What sort of people are those of Connecti cut f" the answer will be supplied in a refer ence to Barnum, the showman. They will thus be understood, parsons, professors and people, as a community of those traditional Yankees in the South who flourish upon hypocritical professions and false pretences. They may answer, "Suppose yon look nearer home and tell us of Connecticut something of the moral character and moral influence of the city of New York in the political world." We will. New York is a city of a million of inhabitants, and as the great financial and commercial centre and settling house of this continent this city, with its million of people, ought to have ten times the moral weight in Congress of any other community of a million in the country. But what is the fact f This imperial city has no influence in Congress, none whatever, that we can perceive, beyond the strength in the yeas and nays of its six Representatives. Certainly they do not wield the twentieth part of the power of the ten Representatives from Massachusetts, nor the weight of any six members from the western border of civiliza tion. And why? Because the antecedents, the intellectual calibre, moral charaoter and political make up of the members from this metropolis in Congress amount to nothing bat yea or nay. The question then naturally follows, why, then, do not the people of this great city elect better men T We are constrained to answer that it is because "the roughs" have the Ma jority, and as they alone make our politioal elections their special business, they manage the nominations and the elections to suit them selves. In Congress, however, and before tbc world, this powerful metropolis, this strong right arm of the government in its defenoo and maintenance, suffers the humiliation of a mil lion of people without any refcognlsed influ ence in the government?yea. of a people in capable of governing themselves. Our city councils and their shameless spoliations, our riots, our primary elections, our elective judges, in most oases, and oar members of Congress are all to some purpose, among the monarchists of Europe, employed as unanswer able (hots and arguments in proving the de moralising tendencies of popular Institutions. We may my, too, that Af this city has been saved from still more deplorable evils, it has been, from time to time, by the seasonable and saving interventions or the state. Does the State of Connecticut desire to stand on tbe same stool of political humiliation, penance and repentance with the oitj of New York T If her people desire it the waj is open before them in the election of Barnnm, the showman, and his politioal associates ; for tbe same vicious elements which in New York And their representative man in a Fernando Wood or John Morrissey have him in Connecticut in the showman, Barnum. When nominations not fit to be made, and the moral delinquencies of such nominees, are brought into the field to "tickle the ears of the groundlings," and are winked at by moral pfofessors and pious par sons, the community conoerned are in danger of foiling into the low political scale of the city of New York. Tbe republicans of Connec ticut, In foiling from their high estate into the embraces of the Feejee mermaid and the Jeremy Diddler of the woolly hone, have made a bold departure to demoralise their party and dlsgraoe their State; and hence we msy properly appeal to the religious and moral people of Connecticut to beware of " stealing the livery ef Heaven to serve the Devil in." Mayor Hoffman has the reputation of a reepeo table man; but his associations with the rings, political, pugilistic and gambling, of this city, and their candidates for Congress, were the death of Hofhaan. The State oould reach him and did, though It oould not directly reach his most obnoxious confederates. In Connecticut they can reach the obnoxious showman and his supporters and apologists, and they should all be held to a rigid responsibility for the grave sfhnoe of parading before an honest, truthfhl and moral people inch an unworthy represen tative of their Stats as this presuming show

man, Barnnm. WH neretas OB Steele Par The IWhtsw persists in urging " a general and prompt resumption of specie payments." It attempts, however, no refutation of what It terms " the HsniuTi sophistry" injcalling upon it to resume specie payments itself, and upon Its paper makers, writers, mailers, clerks, Ao., to test the sinoerity of Its professions with regard to resumption. With an affectation of modesty it declines to initiate the policy whloh it advocates. It plteously cries i?"How can we pay In gold while we receive ail our dues in depreciated paper which the government has made a legal tender T" But why ha* the government been oompelled to resort to a paper currency f Whs it not tye lack of sflftoient gold and silver to [carry on foe war that created thfe neoeesfty t And lea net foe war bequeathed this bgrten wtah most be boras until H shall have gfadfority disappeared f k sudden thaw in the mountfofn overwhelm! the valley with such destructive floods as have lately desolated certain portions of our territory. But a gradual melting away of the suows of whiter loosens the girdle of spring, and, almost before we are aware, glorious summer danoes joyously forward. The financial "winter of our discontent" must follow the order of nature. We must paliently endure its diminishing rigors until golden prosperity shall return. The premature re sumption of specie payments would cause disastrous panics which would postpone indefinitely the good time coming. The Feretaa Feller at the Kneerer Napeleee Oehate la the Freaeh Chambers. According tb one of yesterday's telegrams the foreign policy of the Emperor had been vigorously attacked in the Corps Legislatif, MM. Thiers and Favre declaring that the encouragement which the Emperor had given to the unification of Germany and Italy had proved hostile to the interests of France. Count do Chambord, the chief of all the Bour bons, has already with much seriousness and sorrow told France and the world the story. Such, therefore, it ro?j be taken for granted, is tbe general conviction of the legiti mists. M. Thiers may be regarded as giving expression to the general sentiment of the Orleanists. Nor is it possible to doubt that M. Jules Favre speaks in the name of a very large proportion of the liberals of France. It is not difficult to understand the position assumed by tbe Count de Chambord. The position of the ex-Prime Minister of Louis Philippe is equally intelligible. It is impossi ble to deny either the one or the other the merit of consistency. How tbe leader of the French liberals should adopt such a course it would be less easy to understand did we not bear in mind that there is nothing which so completely blinds a Frenchman to justice and reason as that which touches or seems to touch the greatness of his 'country. With a united Germany on the one hand and a united Italy on the other every intelligent Frenchman sees that his conn try can never again occupy the same proud and prominent position which she has been wont to occupy in the European system, and that her influence in Enropean councils must be materially lessened. It is our conviction, therefore, that MM. Thiers and Favre have bat echoed tbe general sentiment of the French people of all grades and sections of society. There are many thoughts to which this viow of tbe situation gives rise. One is that the Emperor bos been slightly outwitted. He is entitled to all praise for bis policy towards the Italians. History will not refuse to admit that the unity of Italy redounds to his lasting honor. But the Emperor did not calculate that a united Italy, which he encouraged, and a united Ger many, which be did not encourage, should spring into existence at one and the same time. This is tbe difficulty which the Emperor equally with every intelligent Frenchman feels. Another thought is that a foreign war which promised to win back for her her proud position would not be unpopular in France. Were it not for this Exposition which, fortunately or unfortunately, he has on hand, we do not be lieve that either his infirm health or hia ad vanced years would prevent Napoleon from engaging in some such enterprise. Tii* Ferry Lcuci ul City FruckiM*. We perceive tbmt m Ihw of the Staten Island ferry has been granted to Commodore Vender bflt for the next ten yoan at the insignificant sum of one thonsand dollars a year. Now, the income from this and other ferries is a part of the property of the city, which goeQto lighten taxation. The Staten Island ferry, which in fact embraces three or fovr ferries, could be leased for one hundred thousand dollars a year, and there are, no doubt, companies who would gladly pay that price for the lease. But unfortunately the law requires all parties offer ing to lease it also to purchase the boats and other property of the present owners, and at a valuation which, under the oiroumstanoes, might be Inconvenient and unprofitable, as some of the boats are pretty well worn out and the docks and landings in very indifferent con dition. It is notorious that under the present management no attention is paid to the safety or comfort of the public on the Staten Island ferry. It is ran for the profits which it returns, and nothing more. It is therefore to be regret ted that this terry should be left in the same hands for ten years more. The lease of the Union Ferry Company of Brooklyn is pro tected by the same' proviaion, requiring pur chasers of the lease to buy the property of the company, and in order to keep the lease in their own hands the company has for some time past been erecting costly buildings at each of the tour ferries under its control, so as to render the purchase of the lease by outride bidders too expensive, and thus keep the monopoly in their own hands. If the law upon this point was altered four times the sum which the city now derives from these forr^s oould be realised, and the mfeey which new goes Into the hands of a few millionnalres would go into the city treasury, where it properly belongs. We presume that it is in the power of the Legislature to change the law upon this subject of the city franchises, and we trust that they will give some attention to it before they adjourn. Tbe Last mf Tmmmmmw Hall. Hall has been sold. The sachems have resolved that the old headquarters shall know them no more, but that they will take their scalps and tomahawks to soase ether locality. Berne months since, after his defeat for Governor, Mayor Hofftoan denounced Tens many Hall as a nest of filth and corruption, and feelingly declared that its muok and mire clung to the garments of all who entered the Old Wigwam, and could not be shaken off His proposition to sell the rotten hall and get into a purer atmosphere and cleaner quarters was then defeated; but it now appears that the sachems have reconsidered their former deci sion and that yesterday it was finally dhffti of by private sale. This is the last el Tammany. But if her old members desire success in tbe future they must wash their hands of their wornout, offensive principles and their decayed leaders and organs, as well as of their dilapidated building, and come oat in new and clean political habiliments. They oaanot Impose upon the people by simply abaqdontng t|w wigwam sad moving the sasse old goods and ohattels Into a new habitation. There must be a reform throughout. Let them repent M tMf sine, throw off their copperhead sympdthisl sad their obsolete theories, eatob O with tie Uri Uving Issues of the dar |ftd wait patiently until their past off.'aces are forgot ten. It they do thia they will take a promi nent part in the financial issues that must fol low the complete reconstruction of the South. If tbey do not they might just as well have remained all their lives shut up in the fiMh and imparity of Tammany Hall, so graphically de scribed by Mayor Hoffman. A Ooib?rrr la New Ywk-Ucat of the KlecMve Jadlcierr. The truth of the saying that "history repeats Itself' is vindicated by the reap pearance upon the New York bench of the veritable Dogberry drawn by Shakspeare over two hundred and fifty years ago. The investigation of the State Senate into the Connolly-Kennedy imbroglio has been the means of making publio a chapter in the official history of the jovial Justice of the Fourth dis trict which proves that an aetive politician and a jolly boon companion may at the same time be anything bnt an ornament to the bench. The Senate having requested informa tion ?s to the reasons that influenced Superin tendent Kennedy to order the police of the city to take no prisoners before Justice Con nolly's court, the Superintendent replies by producing a very singular batch of affidavits tending to fSastsn upon tbe Judge very un judgelike oonduot. It appears from these documents that Justice Connolly has a very poor opinion of the Metropolitan Police force, and has omitted no opportunity to give them a bit of his mind. One patrolman, who had arrested a rioter for breaking a citizen's win dows. was told, "What right had yon, sir, to arrest this nun ? I have a great mind to lock yon up. If you arrest that man again or any other on a similar charge I will have yon com - ! mitted and tried for a misdemeanor." A second, who had made an arrest for a violation of tbe Excise law, was lectured after this fash ion :?"Citizens ought to protect themselves. If some of you officers had your brains knocked oat ihe parties who did it would be justified. How long have you been on the police ? You are one of those smart, efficient officers looking for promotion. Now, I shall discharge the man, and if you bring any more men here on sncb a charge as this I will lock you up. If I were this man I would sue you for false arrest." Another, who brought up a prisoner on a simi lar obarge, received the following rebuke "Most horrible crime I most horrible crime! How dare you bring a citizen betore m ? on such a complaint? Don't you know that tbe Recorder has given bis opinion that the law is unconstitutional? Now, sir, If you bring another person before me on a similar com plaint I will commit you to a cell. You have your choice, to obey me or to obey the Super intendent of Police. Now, Bir, go to the sta tion house and tell your captain what I have said to you." A polioeman who was indis creet enough to arrest a man whom he found in tbe act of kicking another in the head, after knocking him down on the sidewalk, was told "you saw too much. You are a d?d nui sanoe. There has not been one day's peace in the Twenty-eecond ward since you have been there." And a yet more inoonsiderate member of the force, who went into a brewery to cap ture a man who was trying to murder a woman, was severely rebuked for conduct that might have been the means of "spoiling a whole brewing of ale." The Dogberry of Messina had the same views of the doty of the watch that tbe New York Dogberry has of the province of Ua? patrolmen:? Doobmrt?Ton ?hall make ao noise in the Mreeta; for, for the watch to babble and talk la moat tolera ble and not to be -udurad. * * * You are to call at the alehooaaa and bid them that ara drank get them to bed.

Doobbrat?If yoe meet a thief, yon may suspect him, by Tirtae of yoar office, to be no true nun: and for auch kind of men, the less you meddle ot make with them, why the more la for your bonaaty. Watch?If we know him to be a thief, ahall we not lay ban da on him? DocemaRY?Truly, by your offloa yon may; but I think they that touch pitch will be deflled: he moat peaceable way for you. If you do lake a thief, la to let him ahow himaelf what be la, and steal out K yoar company. ? * * If you meet the prince in the night you may stay him. ? ? ? Marry, not whbtut the prince be willing; for, indeed, the watch ought to offend no man; and it Is an offence to stay a man agafcst his wllL On on* occasion we are told in Super intendent Kennedy's statement that a number of hackmen were taken befort oar modern Dogberry, charged with violating the city or dinances in not haying copiia of the legal ratee of fare to. show their cistomers. The New York Dogberry at first reused to receive such a charge, asserting that tlere was no law to sustain it; bat upon the laV being read to him by the Sergeant of Poll#, "Well," said he, "that was not known to ije before, and if I am ignorant of it It oaonot ie expected that hackmen should know it;" so b dismissed the whole batch of oomplainta.! The last oaae which led direotly to the orpr of Superin tendent Kennedy, by whichthe police were directed to take no prisoner! before Justice Connolly, grew oat of th? arrest of two n for violation of the ^else law. The judge dismieeed the complain and committed the officers for eaaaolt and b ttery, requiring them to give hail. This the olieemen, under instructions from the Super! kendent, refused to do, whereupon the jovia judge, after se verely rebuking them for their want of respect towards the bend committed the officers to prison. In like tanner the Dog berry of two and n half centrist ago stood proudly on fats dignity: DooammT.?OeS'a wm Ufa I wkia'i tha amoal let Jm be writ down?the prince's oibr, coxcomb. Come, lad them.

Reeeaetruetiea la Baatk Caraliaa?The tte aarlcable Mediae at Calaaibia. The recent meeting at the capital of Sooth Carolina, a more extended account of which we publish this morning, is one of the most significant events of the present day. Disfran chised whites and enfranchised blacks mingled together and took counsel on the policy of ths fixture under the new order of affairs In the Southern States. As South Carolina was for merly the foremost in secession and the bold est advocate of slavery, so now Bhe leads the van in reconstruction and is the first of the rebel States to recognize the equal rights of the freedmen. The politicians of South Carolina were always shrewd, active men; and the speeches of the whites at this remarkable meet ing show that if the rebellion has stripped them of everything else it has not deprived them of political energy and sagacity. An assemblage of abolitionists in Boston, presided over by Wendell Phillips, conld not bave claimed more for or conceded more to the oolored man than did the representatives of the South Carolina /hivalry, standing in the capital of their State. It must have been a singular sight to see such men as Wade Hampton, De Sauasure, Colonel Talley, E. J. Arthur and others telling their emancipated slaves that "they have the right of franchise/' that they are "politically the equals of ths whites;" that "the white man and the colored man of the South have the same interest, the same destiny;" that "the two races moat prosper or perish together;" that the whites cherish "no hostility towards the colored man on aooount of his altered circumstances," and exhorting the blacks, in the exercise of their new rights and power, "to try those of the community whom they have known?those who have the same interests"?and not to "experi ment on the sympathies of strangers" until they find themselves deceived by their white brethren of the South. It is evident that the white citizens of Sooth Carolina have resolved to accept the situation, and by a prompt and masterly movement towards immediate reconstruction under the Sherman act to seize and hold control of the negro vote before the republicans have time to obtain a commanding influence over the freedmen through the machinery to be ope rated by Secretary Stanton. If all the ex cluded States should adopt a similar policy and push forward the work of reconstruction in the same spirit and with equal promptness and vigor they might yet make themselves masters of the position and effectually over throw all the plans of the radicals. By snob a movement the whole South could be brought back into the Union before the next Presiden tial election, and the disfranchised whites would have as complete political oontrol over their several States as if the ballots remained in their own hands and the shackles were still on the arms of their former slaves. KchMIcIIIm New York City. The 11kbald baa published the memorial which was presented the other day to the Legislature by James E. Serrell, proposing to remodel the oitj of New York. Wo o??d not say that we should be the last to discourage any feasible plan which claims, like the plan of Mr. Serrell, to be " the result of many years of practical work, shady and research," and that "its adoption and completion neoessarily would hare a tendency to make New York the greatest city in the world." We are also aware that engineers an unwilling, like Napoloon, to admit la their Vocabulary the word * impossible." Giro them enough time, money and scienoe, and they proieee to be able to do anything whafc ever in their line. "My proposition is," says Mr. Serrell, "to change the shape of the boundary on the easterly side of the city of New York and the westerly site of Long Island opposite thereto, by outtiag 4 new East river, of the dimensions as herein after described, through Long Island Arose Hunter's Point to Long Island Sound, to be oompleted by sections and not opened until finished, after which the old channel may be closed and filled up, thereby avoiding and doing away with Hell Gates, both large and small, and adding to the city of New York the width of the channels on each side of Blaok well's bland, the bland itself snd the land ow Long bland, and also Ward's and Randall* islands. The proposed new East rirer or chau* nel oould be completed before (he present channels are ia the least changed or Interfered with, and would be flee and a quarter miles long, three thousand three hundred fbet wide and forty bet deep." The mere statement of each a proposition audioes to show lb impracticability. Obviously it involves a violation of the laws of nature which have given Manhattan bland its present shape, and of those laws, almost equally fixed, which regulate the growth of all groat cities and which have made New York gradually reach lb present expansion, deterssining dsn very directions la which it should strstsb itself. Mr. Serrell has the same motto as Bass Patch, that what man has done ssan son de, and he polnb to the building of St. Petersburg as on encouraging precedent. But we remind him that Peter the Great had as I advantage over bias In having gained potass atoa of the river Neva, aa well as In not having to demolish great cities on each side of It before at lb mouth, among the marshes, he laid the foundations of St Petersburg in 1703. The Csar began at the beginning. Mr. Serrell has not yet won possession of the East river, and "the easterly aide of New York" and "the westerly side of Long bland opposite thereto'* are pretty well built up already. We are the leas inclined to waste time ia seriously dbcusstng Mr. Serrell's grand but Impraotieable scheme, inasmuch as it is, if we are not misinformed, but a single one of many similar schemes which have swarmed forth from the same bnsy, but, we bar, overheated brain. The projector of this plan for remodel* ling New York was, if we remember aright, fotally tardy with his plans and specifications at Port Royal. Bnt be was prompt enough, we have been told, with a proposition to ereot a mole from Hilton Head to dlavana as a sab and sore outlet for the black element fq the problem whloh perplexed the national mind during our late war.
