Investigation by n t'amintttee of tho Chosen Freeholders of Hudson County at (<ntten? hern Yesterday--The Ferry nn Intolerable Xnisance?J,out! Calls for Its Abatement ?Tnder the 1'rewent .tlanngement, dec, The committee appointed by tho Board of Chosen Freeholders of Hudson county to Investigate the man agement and condition of the Wcehawkon ferry mot st half-post five o'clock yesterday afternoon at F.ngle hardt's Hotel, Gutteob'-rg, John Wilson. Foreman, la the chair. The other members of the committee were Messrs. John Iztwery and Frederick Ktzold. The meet ing comprised a largo number of proprietors, wagonors and dealers of various kinds, all of whom wore men of more than average Intelligence and seemed unanimous in taeir determination to wage relentless war against the intolerable monopoly Known as the Weebiiween ferry. Nicholas I.ille was the first witness, and testified that the boat now running on the ferry ia totally unlit to be the temporary habitation of any human b?im ; that It runs sometimes At long Intervals, and without any re gard to the interests of passengers; that in consequence of the bad management travel Is diverted to other sources, and property depreciated in value; that the gentlemen's cabin is used promiscuously for slisco, hoc* ami the human spsctes, the latter being charged live cents, being two more than the fare of hts quadrupedal frieode?(laughter)?with whom he must hold tempo rary companionship: ihat all complaints made by pas sengers arc treated with unqualified contempt, and that passengers are driven to the last resource, and must ap peal to the law-making power, Unding all other appeal? disregarded Otto Kohler reriled a long tale of i*rie\ ances, among which he stated that on one occasion nn ox fell into tlie engine room, displacing a portion of iho machinery, so thai the engineer could not stop the boat when required, and it ran Into tho slip with a crash, throwing every passenger wlio wits .standing od his feet, and smashing a port mil ot tho slip; the ox was taken to New York and sold as good beef; on another On-aid on tho engine, r went on a sprue, from which lie returned to tho boat in a Aery somnolent condition; the bell rang, but the engineer was asleep. and did not hear it; the result wis another crash; the original charter ?- impels the company to charge tho same fhre as on the Hoboken ferry, whereon thev charge two i-rats more, (here the witness won rwinlndod hv the Chairman thai a <upplom?nt to the net empowered the compaay to Increase the f.,re? ) The charges :nr wagons, carnages and heavv I ads are exorbitant; Oftentimes when tho boat should start ,n tho morning tlie deck hands will be playing euchre on shore, and when they get to the boat toe tide will be gone Out, and it will lute over MM hear to get the boat out of the mud; T often stood two au,l three hours waiting for the boat, which on several -a^loru: only made one trip in the-J;ty; look upon Ihe ferry management in a cross despotism, as the company sets public opinion at defiance; the entire man ncement devolves on Nathan lei Doyle, who Is the Pr-wi dent; Ibe day after the pre.taiitmcut of tbe Hnd*on county Grand Jury relative to this terry the word* 'sheep fold" were pouted up conspicuously ? ver the gentlemen's cabin, as if to set even tiialnw at defiance; Ma terry, under MUMP mituareincnt, would attract no immense traffic; meet of the residents In this quarter are obliged to tra\ei to Hoboken; It wenld seem that the ohjoct of the present management is to depopu late this district and convert it into a grazing iwslaiw; more attention Is paid t o raule than to human beings; would never let ray wife cross over in thofmst, ?? I coosider it would be too great u risk of Lie, while the obscene writing! and fig ores In the ladles' cabin, nut to apeak oflbedut, are repulsive .n tbe extreme even to the focliac* of turn; do lamps arc lighted in the cvenintr in that cabin thus exposing moral* to ontami tiebou have known lad'os to prefer standing outside ia tne ra n and cold; never knew 'ho l> >nt to h - painted or denned; there war* formerly two hoe' -, and one was -old; hex* pronarvd no his than sixteen alldotit*. with thirty or forty documents. to sw all ilu-s? statements; th??, paper* are now in ftcnton. but will bo laid liefsro the Ho.-u-d of f'ho--en Freeholder* in doe time; in ccse of tire tho result would he mo?t calamitous. a* ibero is uo prov mioa agsiiiM it; the platform lei.Jing to the ferry Is rotten h* to endxager the lives of uuy who treed on ?i: am oi opinion that the lesse should he withdrawn front the present managnmeM ,nd given to tuea who won! | Rake It at? uoe a public 'lenellt and a highly pro fltublc speculation, a* at nreeent Mr. Dovle la deoi to all [ nmt>'? t>*? | < ?'? rebut: z M,d that taut -uiumnr bo conveyed no ) s* , than eights ttivn-iiud block- of stone neross tli* terry, | to-which he whs chaeged ron shilling* k load, hut It lie disnced t? give a three dollar or Are dollar bill he would ihi charged twelve billing* a load; for the um<' load at th* Hoboken ferry ilia <harge in life *b llinca; the I charges are <mlte arbitrary on tha Weehswken ferry. Maary H.?'<iwin testified that on aesoral nce?sl'i*a the boat sticks It. mud at tha slip, and Is two feet below iba sni'ac* of the btidfe, which causes great danger to horses with heavy imds, another groat aooreoot danger *a the filthy <00411100 of the deck wharo tattle bad 'wen etaudinii. and where bor?c, often slip; on iw> occur, m fast Knsetnber, wtien n o weather a-a* One, he eui red i-lia boat on tne WwtiawWen side at ton o'clock In tha tore noon, and after finntlog up and dowu the river waa landed attain at Uie same slip at one o'clock ia the alter noon; oftent lues was obliged to watt au hour and a half for the fide.

Ho aaya:? It wilt be shown presently lhat there are hundreds ef thonaaods of personrf m the Metropolitan 8enitery ate trict now unprotected against smallpox, and thai ^or nearly two yoara paat tho moat i?uaceptlbl6 material rer tho ravages of thta roniagton has rapidly Increased >n our midst. The enmbo?tlble material for another sweep ot' this scourge ho* accumulated, and already the sparky of contagion are Ivlm into the midst of our population. Bv the greatest vigilance in the care of every ceo%of n&aiipox in the cty?though hut few have eoc ;jfed? ilir scourge boo been averted; hut this imnt'oBlty will not continwe much longer, for the amount tf tno con tusion in the metropolitan district wili rapidly increase by means of arrivals from abroad. The Dumber of patients in the smallpox hospital has been increasing d'.rngthe last two inuaihs. The amount of this disease in parts and cities witence most of the emigration oom-s to New York is steadily increasing, and it already a aoiircoof popular comment and alarm in Great Britain.

The Health Officer at Quaran ino will scou have trouble with it. The present epidemic of smallpox in the British towns was predicted more thun two year* ago by the two sani tary oflicerr, Messrs Beaton and Buchanan, who, undnr the chief med.ral uthcer of the government, inspected tlie vai ciuat on in the principal towns. The* found that much of the vaccinating was Improperly performed, and that the people were again beromin indtifereel to its importance. They then said lhat '-before the year 1806 an epidemic of smallpox w.iulu follow audi u. gleet" New York can be immediately protected agaiusi this great danger, and to guard this metropolis from small pox by vaccination will bn tho Ural atop in protecting the continent; and ?? have evidence that the health authorities m most American cities aires in the opinion, winch seems not to be wholly overlooked in New York, that upon this lb urd of Health de-olv?> the iv-pcnsi bliity of leading in the adont on 01 c niprch.-ns'vo sani tar.v measures again tl every kind ol infectious disease. The report then goes 011 to state that vaccination is supposed, to a groat extoa: even am ng medical mun, to be a verj simp'- procces, wmle, 1U fact, a centime and trnHworllty vacciuaiiou is one o( the most exact aud delicate process s that a physic an ever perform."; and dela'ls in a concl-e tiisnoer the condition" of a g.-nt: inn protective vacciuatiou, and the rules laid down, as a guide in eslimutiug 'he eOieacv of a vaccination, by the Medical Council u. the Royal Vaccina Institution and the Salutary it-?:* of tho Privy Couucil of Kngland. fcuporinleiident Harris then s atcs thai it is a very common, lb. ?'li itioorrect opinion t-at a single vacclno euro 1< ai vays a<l quale proof of prutecdon agiiin*l the disease, and that ill* wor-t of ait d?fe< Is is that of deceiving the i.aUt.i and tne o|wrator alike, by producing a doutuius or apnri.Tts vaccina sore from lymph taken at he wrong lime, or by dried aud deteri orated vaccine cr ;st. During the six.y-s.x years in which vaccination had been practised in Knropo and A .lerica, the necessary princpies and ruies fur it- application Lave been fully a-'ceiturned, but popular lustrue'ion ua tuis point has been very much negleotet. I> m presumed, however, that in due time the v|- r,.M)'itai -njard of Health will devl-e a comprehensive sod eif tive system lor Iusur tng the univer-ai apt.Hostiou of vaccination in this dis trict. I)r. Harrw think it unnecessary at prew-ut to de pend on the taciiit ?nitered by iMing public chari ties, but adviso* lit ? t-utuui'iury to take advantage of the absence of the xuijH p<ix pldemic, as tiiere is reason 10 believe (hat a ren- wul ot the ctiolora will appear prior to too middle of next June. Volun tniy avenciea, he says. must b nmiuiy relied upon, and of tho means 01 this kind now aval laid - in New York and Brooklvn he * .gcost* the promulgation, by the Board of Health, of necessary plaits, iegu ution' and general inforiuaiion; the co operation of the Buanl with the medical dlspenaarp-s; the stipulation by tho dispon saries, Ac , and pattictihirlv by the Commissioners of l'ublic Charitt s and orr -ctions, before a ssuming any ca>-e, tbat the recipient gi .e evidence of been properly vacclnau-d, or sub.-ni-. to the operation; a simi lar stipulation towards emplo es by banks, railroad, ferry and sieatn hip co,tunnies, hotcis, ate.; the exac tion from pupiis, in p ihue or pr-vaie sciio-ii*, of a certi ficate of taccioution at the tunc of admission, or within a reasonable time tlier.?ait-r, and the adoption of tho plan ordeicd by the British government requiring, in all cases of legisu-y of births, that the rcgis ering clerk should return to th" parents, or attending physician, a p quest from the Health Hoard, and a copy of section twenty nine of tho cauiiury Code enjoining vaccination within three months alVr birth. After suggesting various foims for such c rtiflcatcs, Ac., Suporiulendent Harris expresses the opinion that a huuse-to-hoiise s.stem <v inquiry and vaccination would be attended with lieuellcial result-, ae has been abo?u at Philadelphia, Haltimor- aud New Orleans. At Provi dence, R 1., au*o. this .system has been practiced witti equal success. 1. it should be found practicable to inspect a great nura er of oersane, it would probttbiy appear that in New York not more titan two out of three persons are properly and effectively vac. mated, and thai onc-hail of those who have been operated upon unsuccessfully could be protectively revuccutaied. The groat national vaccine institutions of Great Britain are conceded 'o le the best models m toe world, hut tho lucurjiorab d dlf pensarirs of New York excel tnem in the number ol vac cine ofiei'a'ions, and occasionally .n tlie production ? f vaccine tiros.

After *am* V ailmloary business had boon dtapoaod of the Profer ^Qr m introduced to the audience, flo add that li '/ha with much hesitancy that ha attempted so soon After the discourses of bia illustrious predeceasor, Professor Agassis, to speak on the same general *brma of Brazil; hot the field of the speaker's explanations was a different one from his, sod now that so great aa interest had been aroused la the country by bis lectures, and that so general a dastre is fait to learn more of that empire, it did not seem im proper that bo should east bis contribution into tbc stock of our Information concerning that country, though It should be but a mite. He proposed to give in the form of a narrative some 0000*101 of explorations which It was his privilege to make on the coast of Brasll, be tween Bio Janeiro and Bahia, a region of which scarcely anything la to be found recorded in hooks. It was a shame that so many writers about Brazil occupied themselves with flimsy descriptions of the ludicrous side of Brazilian life and manners, and neglected to tell anything of real value. The Thayer expedition, Which the Professor accompanied, started from Now York on the 1st of Hay, 1665, and after a voyage of twenty days, It was announced that on the morrow they should anchor in the port of Rio Janeiro. As they approached the month of the hay the nearer hills separated themselves from the rest and seemed to rise out of the mass, and now they saluted the little old fortress built at the foot of the hills on the eastern side of the entrance. Entering still further, and leaving behind them the dugar Loaf, there was soon on the same tide of tho bay near bv the picturesque peak of the Coreorado rising from among the bills to a point on which gleamed a white perpendicular wall of a pre cipice 1 oarlv two thousand fret high. After some further description of the bar l*rofessor Hartt wont on to state that when tbe expedition arrived at Rio Ja neiro the party was sent oil on various excursions, witch occupied a month or more, while Pro fessor Ague*./, made his headquarters In tbe city, amassing immense collections, especially of Qeh. To himself and oompanlou, Mr. Edward Copcluud. of Bos ton, war given the exploration of the coast between Rio Janeiro and Babia. Before prreioding further the Fpefiitor gave a graphic description of tbe city of Rio Janeim, which contained about 300.000 inhabitants, and ike houses of which were built chiclly of brick or stone. In the c.ty were a number of churches, hospital*, Ac. A largo commerce was dune, principally in coffee, sugar, A*'., the business being principally iu the hands of Por tuguese and French. After hrletlv describing several pieces In mo victory of tho city, which were approached b? mil And etoam-rs, the Professor said that bo left Kio Janeiro on the 19th >?f .Tune, ISM, In a little coast steamer, and tc three days arrived at Campos, a city on (tie Rio P&raiha, about thirty miles from its mouth, where h.s party remained several days making collections of fish, hird* Ac , and examining tbe Rio Muriatic. The Rio rurabiba took lis rise in the province of Rio Janeiro, and as !oug as It ll?ws among tbe moun tains Is obstructed by many rapids and Is navigable only for canoes. In its lower part it reaches the plains on tne coast sod la navigable (or email steamers and launches for about aixty miles. The plaius aro exceed ingly fertile and particularly suited for the cultivation of the sugar cane and such other products aa tbe water iu the rainy seasons w.>uld not damage. Campos Is a flourishing little ci'y, with some ten thousand 10 fifteen thousand inhabitants, boasting ol a large number of churches and a ibealre. It docs a Inrve business in sugar nud coffeo principally, wbich are collected from the n ?Lbboriug country and Interior, and salt, wbich is imported from Rio Janeiro and sent into the interior After making numerous col lections be went to Victoria, where he presented his I ot ters tu the President, and alter waiting a week was provided with mules, which, be was toid, could only convey him a part or his w ay. His party then returred to Kio Juuelru, and shortly afterwards recommenced tueir jouftiry towards Balua. On arriving at the Rio Poce he noticed large turtles, wb'ch were there in abundance, and tho eggs ot wbich made good omelets. Pioleasur Hartt gave a fine description of ibo Rio Lioce, along tl>e boiucrs of which the laud was very fertile, and 111 the ledyo of which there were n quantity of dia monds. Tbe natives of tho region of the Rlc Boce were uncivilized, nud wore little or no apparel, and inclined to be as cannibals in tbe choice of their food. He then journeyed to Paota Clara, subsequently to Philadelphia, where a German colony was settled, and after stopping Ht llshia and other smaller pluees. returned to Rio Janeiro, whence tho journey homeward was begun. Professor Hartt Illustrated bl? discourse by a diagram on a blackboard, and narrated, during the course of bis re marks, many Interesting Incidents happening In connec tion with Ills explorations.

Kimball herself, but for that of the many warm friends In this city and else where whom alio la known to poaieas, and who very naturally feel aggrieved at tbo statement re ferred to. It appears that the reporters who were prevent at the examination of Dr. Beakiey, at the Too>bs Police Court, were l.d to believe, from a statement made by Mrs dote, the nurse, that the deceased had confessed to her that she was the ''wife of Major Kim ball, who was killed daring the war/' that the lady mentioned was the wile of the Colonel Kimball shot by General Corcoran. The fact is, however, aa baa since been ascertained, that "Mrs. Elizabeth E. Kimball," whose death by so frightful a means was recorded, waa the widow of I.ieutenaut John K.

This wa* OUlv the BMUMM ? fV vidua]?, without authority to tit, tad he considered u best for thoeo present to get the sense of theWrcigiectlve societies prior to the Cenvnaiion la Prince streee The Chaibmah simply desired to express a disappro bation at the occurrence, end he believed the meering to morrow night would express the same opinion. He asked to move ihe reference o? the matter to the vmrtoee societies. He hod no Intention of cooling odium oa any b?Mr! Hold** hollered it wee certain that the policemen or the truck driver would oot be blamed, hot that Ihe censure would fall oa thri eocletlee, and It was hie deelro that they should fionraie tbtmitlTH. A dMm of censure now reeled on all, almost as much aa if they had been ecMve pwucHients, and it woe his wisn. ni least to shift the onus of the re?ronsibllliy to where it hotong?d. Another Dklkoatc mid ihere was reason to believe thst tho trackman drove on when he had been ordered to stop, and that, therefore, he was thrown down. He would havo acted iu the same manner himself If * dronkea truck men from Seventh avenue bad attempted to force hie wav through a peaceable procession. (Applense ) Another Dai ?:tr? believed that these aooetlea had certain rights, hot that they could not arrogate to them-, selves any such authority over the streets_ Tho right of way if riven to the truckmen would only have caused a temporary dolay, which ?r granted would have avoided the outrage. He thought the temperance societies far removed frma the scene el the Mme. ought to express this feet and their disapprobation of tho rioting sad of their disposition to bring the oftnders to justice. Chabus A. Clare moved that the further considers Hon or this matter be deferred until the decision of the Irish convention shall have hocaobtained at the meeting to-morrow night. . . The On aire as said he bed issued the oall for the meet ing simply because he had been waited oa by uianv gen tlemen and urged io do so, which, as president oi the socloty. It was his duty to do. One oi the Daw ATT.-' thought It would probably yet be shown that the truckmen was greatly in the wrong, having stood in the atreet three-quarters er aa hour or. fore the proceeslon passed. Another Mbmbs* believed the auhJect would be heoted from the Convention, and that therefore the quest wa ought to be settled flrrt by tnemselvea He ? Wf sore about the occurrence, and would recommend the delegate* to use their influence at the convention to have the matter considered there thoroughly. An amendment was offered that as temperance men, they like no further action In the matter, except as dele gates at the Irish Convention. The amendment >vae "rite original motion was then carried, and the meet ing adjourned. Conditio* of the Wounded Xfn-ArrMt mf (lie Alleged Kludcnder af the Riot.
