I I WW NEW YORK HERALD. Ntnr York, Monday, Oetofo?r 18*7. The Battle Kleldi In lite Valley of Mexico. Our readers will Had in this day's paper, engraved plans of the battlefields of Chepultepec and Molino del Key, in which the bravery of our arms was so conspicuous. We have copied them from the New Orleans Picayune and Delta. We received the papers containing them yesterday, in the afternoon, put them in the hands of our engravers immediately, and to-day exact copies of them appear in the Herald. They will aid our reauers considerably in attaining correct knowledge of those brilliant engagements. They speak for themselves. The Finance* of the General Government? Probable Policy of tile Treasury l>epart uent. i In about six weeks, the representative branches of the general government will convene a1 Washington, for air indefinite period, for the purpose of taking into consideration the affairs of the nation, and devising ways and means to regulate the affairs of Mexico; to carry on the war, if necessary, vigorously, or to establish a form of government in that country the best calculated to bring about an orderly and prosperous state of things, out of the confusion and chaos now existing in that section of the world. The first and most important movement to be made In relation to this matter, is the raising of funds to meet all the extraordinary expenditures of the government. This must be done by a new loan, to whatever extent the exigencies of the time require. There is no doubt but that proposals for a six / __ . i_ ^ : 11: r j _ i per ceni'ioan, lor iweniy or uuriy minions 01 aoilars,would at once be taken, upon terms 89 favorable as the last loan, and we have no doubt but that bids tor a much larger amount than that required immediately, would be offered. The ability ot the government to raise money is unlimited. The Jonly question at present unsettled is, in what way can it be raised upon the most favorable terms, and the vacuum made by the withdrawal of a large amount of capital from different employments, filled to the best advantage, and to advance the best interestsjof the country 1 The issue of Treasury notes, so fir, has worked well, and we know of no way of raising such large amounts of money, better than the last adopted by the Secretary of the Treasury. That system has been practically demonstrated, and not found wanting in any respect, sj far as availability is concerned; and we can suggest only one improvement, and that is, a reduction in the denom ination of these Treasury notes, which would convert them into a more available circulating medium, and give the country a currency other than based upon gold and silver. The Treasury notes of the denomination authorised by the last act, cannot go below par in the market, in consequence of the demand that must exist lor them to carry on the commerce of the country, in regulating exchanges between different sections of the Union, for payment into the cus. i r?? ?i ..n ? government, where specie would otherwise be required. These uses for these notes, will always keep them at par, or at a slight premium; but if the denominations were reduced, if there were ia circulation fifties and hundreds, instead of five hundreds, how much more convenient for all the purposes of business, and how much more advantageous to the government in raising money upon them ! We cannot conceive what objections can be raised to such a financial system. These denominations of Treasury notes cann^ be such a stumbling block as many hard monJf advocates would make it appear. There would never be a wish on the part of the holders of these rotes f .and pyqn in the rvent of surh a thing happening, it could always be done for at least the face of them. They would be much better than any bank bill for daily use in trade; they would be better secured than any bank bill in the country, and they would become so generally circulated, that many of them would never be seen again?never be presented for payment. They would be so much sought for, that a nominal rate of interest would suffice, and a large amount of money could be raised in this way, at a rate of interest full two per cent leas than in any other way. The Departi re of tiik French Ocean Steamer Missouri.?This steamship sailed yesterday at 12 o'clock. When |opposite the Battery she fired a salute. m The Missouri has on board forty-three passengers, among whom are M. Le Marquis de Raigecourt, the president of the council of administration of the French transatlantic steamers, and some members of nis family. Her cargo is very large?it consists ot 1150 bales cotton, 20,000 lbs. whalebone; 20 tons copper, and several packages of merchandise, samples, &c.; among which we remarked a very large cheese, sent by an American to his Majesty Louis Philippe. The mail of the Missouri is also very large. M. de Rouville, the royal mail agent, assured us that he had about twenty thousand letters and newspapers. Beside all this, the Missouri carries to France a million of francs in specie. This steamship goes direct to Havre, where the docks are ready for her reception. She will probably reach there in about fifteen days. The Philadelphia, now due, will proceed to the new wharf of the company, pier No. 4 North River, which dock has been permanently engaged for this line. Intxlugknck from South America.?We ar? in receipt of files of the Rio Janeiro paper, Jov nal do Comereio, to the 8th ult. Advices from ' Montevideo to the 23d, and Buenos Ayres to the 20th August, had been received at Rio. The greatest tranquillity reigned inMontevideo, and the energetic proceedings of the new ministry there were restoring confidence. In Buenos Ayres it was naid that the House of Representatives were about to assemble to consider Rosas' conduct in regard to the foreign intervention. There was considerable excitement in the place in consequence of rumors that Rosas intended to close his ports completely, and f rom his supposed intentions towardsComentes and Entre Rios. No positive news had been received from these two provinces, the only thing known with certainty was, that General Urquixa remained perfectly tranauil in Comentes. Bia' tifihl Si'Kctaclk.?A very beautiful spectacle whs witnessed yesterday in the bay, by those who had the good fortune to be on the Battery. The prevalence of an Kasterly wind for three or four days past, detained several square rigged vessels destined to all parts of the world, lrom proceeding to sea, but in the forenoon the vane pointed to the westward, and blew a nice bree/.e, which was eagerly taken advantage of by the mariners. The scene resembled a regatuon a large scale, and drew forth admiration from all who beheld it. Thk i {irki.mer Convention ? We expect there will be some fun and a good deal ot excitement at this convention. It is to meet at one o'clock this afternoon. We have despatched a special reporter to repsrt its proceedings for the Hrrald. stkamsiitr Hip.khnia, from Boston for Liverpool, nrrived nt Halifax on the I?th inst., in forty-fight hour* piwdige. 9hf puilod on th? sum' ?Uy, with eight tildittaiul jxywugeri' * The Mexican Wwr_IU Influence Abmd-IU I Benefit to the United States. Although to many it may ?|>|>earparadoxical or absurd, at first sight, we think it is demonstrable, that irrespective of the territory we may acquire, or any other benefit we may receive when a treaty of peace between the United Statea and Mexico shall be made, the United States will derive vast and permanent advantages from the war with that country. This may be doubted, but its truth can be easily proved? as, also ,that the commonly received axiom that war is at all times an evil, will not apply to our present struggle. It has been felt by every statesman of England and the United States, that a war between these countries was inevitable, sooner or later?inevi. table, from the forms of their respective governments. /">_ : :.L:_ A L _ 1 r wm ax. ?citti uuuaoMMiD w 11iiiii mtr iohi iew years, the two countries were on the verge of hostilities, and nothing but mutual concession averted the crisis. On the laBt, we mean the Oregon dispute, it was averted by statesmanship and the forbearance of bot;h but the teeling?the mind which impelled the two countries to a point, approximating very close to hostilities, at that, as well as other times?still exists as strong as ever, albeit,by the one it may not be exhibited so forcibly as it has been. It may be asked what are the reasons that would influence countries so intimately connected as England and the United States are, by their common origin?by common language, religion and laws, to engage in hostilities! To this it may be answered that political principle is the cause?divided into monarchy and democracy. These are the elements which have produced the feeling we speak of. Being completely antagonistic, they can no more exist together, and flourish, than can fire and water. The one will triumph, and the other must fall. For centuries the monarchical principle has been unmolested; but like all institutions not built on a solid foundation, it must sooner or later fall, its place to be filled by dsmocracy. Monarchy in England might last for centuries yet, if the United States were not in existence. Self covernment is no loncer a theory?it has become a fixed and undeniable fact; and he who denies its practicability, is either wilfully blind to what he sees around him, or wofully ignorant. The statesmen of England know this?it is undeniable; for the tact stares them in the face; and on their part, the natural instinct of self-preservation impels them to be hostile to the United States, and to seek out every opportunity of injuring us. When it was not their policy to cone to blows, they maligned and slandered us through their press. Articles the most false and offensive, have successively appeared in the organs of the government, which libelled and villified our institutions?our manners?ourccstoms; in fact, every thing American. To such an extent was this sys'em of national slander carried, that we verily think the authors themselves believed in what they wrote, a* a liar, by repeating a lie, will eventually believe it to be truth. Since this war comtiu-nced, defeat and disgrace to our arms have been predicted at every step we made. Time, t ..... ......j .u.:_ r.r.,i _r l.:. iiiMvcvci, j'luvru iiicir luoicau ui ucitig disgraced and humiliated, we stand on the summit of the pinacle of fame. With a handful of men, we have completely conquered a nation as large as the greater part of Europe. We have followed the enemy a distance of two or three thousand miles, captured his garrisons and his walled cities, and finally possessed ourselves of his very capital, after achieving a Heries of victories, with tremendous odds opposed to us, unprecedented in the history of the world. Christendom is amazed at our prowess in the field? we are amazed ourselves. This war proves, that although we are unaccustomed to war, we have a greater amount of materiel and resources for carrying it on, than our ill-wishers ever dreamt of. With an army in the field for fifteen mnniU or " ?i?u. only of our strength has been brought into requisition, and our agriculture, mechanic arts, and commerce, prosper as highly as ever. We present an anomaly in the history of nations; for v i : _ _ _ r : wnne we arc carrying on a war in a lureigu country, the expenses of which are paid in specie, there is a continual import of the precious metals into our government coffers. It proves conclusively that the calculations of England and English statesmen, ot our weakness and imbecility, were erroneous. We have furnished them, as well as the rest of the world, proof strong as holy writ, that if we are great in peace, we are great too in war, and aa abundantly able to punish an enemy as we are to feed the hungry. With such palpable evidence of this before their eyes, will the statesmen of England dare to provoke us, or will they wantonly attack us? We think not; and|on this accoant, we"say the war with Mexico will benefit the United States. It will have the effect of staving off, for an indefinite time the contest between monarchy and democracy, which, to all appearances, was, a few years ago, so near at hand. It will save us from a war which, even if we should be as aii.i/toaornl aa u/a r?r*n 1A lUnirA Wnilld nana# lia more injury than fifty years would repair, although our recuperative powers are greater than tliOHe of any other count No fear of war between us and England, therefore, may be entertained for a long time to come; but when the time shall come, as come it will, we will have acquired such additional strength and power as will place us in a position of perfect security. Again, the signs of the times point to a general European war at no distant time. Our commercial relations are so intimate with all the countries ol the old world, that in a war of that kind we would find it difficult to escape being drawn into it, were not all parties aware of our strength and resources. We have given them proof of our capability to take care of ourselves, and convinced them that we are not to be trespassed upon with impunity. We shall, ther?fore, b? respected and feared by all, and can choose the course we may think proper. < >n the whole, then, we give it as our opinion that the war with Mexico will be of permanent benefit to the United States?that it will make us be acknowledged as a great and powerful people, who are possessed of resources unequalled by any other country, and who are abundantly able to command respect and obtain redress for its grievances.

Second Heal?The start for this heat was even At the quarter pole Washington was about a length in front of Almaok ; and at the half mile pole he ??< fifty yards, the latter having broken up badly about half way down the back stretoh. Almaok was urged round the lower turn and up the home stretch t# the score, and he was olose up with Washington as he passed that place. Time, 3:23. The horses kept close together during the next mile, both going steady, though slowly. The second mile was trotted in 3:1!).

Park?Music has greatly advanced as a science in this country, and when It bears the genuine stamp of excellence, It Is with us the most attractive of all amusements. It always will be oultlvated and fostered in proportion to the advancement of wealth and civilization; and it is one of the advantageous results from an extended commerce, that it opens to us so reQned and elevated an enjoyment. The standard of public taste is raised by the frequent listening to the fine models presented to us, and our audiences are becoming most fastidious and difflcult to please. We can, and do, oommand the highest talent, and we will tolerate no other. In no country are artists better paid, except, perhaps, in the metropolitan houses at Paris and London, and the time is not far distant when, with the growth of wealth, and the advanced state of taste and science among us, we shall emulate the fame, and rival the exoellenne of those great establishments. The manager of this house has given us a great treat in the operas he has lately produced. H?l?ni>a In Tnnul munis has never had on our boards a nobler representative than Madam* Bishop; none in whom were united the great qualities of a vocalist and an actreu. Her '' Norma'' laat night wat one of the greatest vocal triumph* we ever listened to, and her " 8omnambula," to be given this evening, is worthy of equal praise. Binae writing the above, we perceive that Madame Bishop will give at the close o f the performance the scene * O I'atria," from " Tancredi," ho enthusiastically received during her late engagement. Forest is to play" Metamora" on Wednesday. Bowery Theatre.?We had the pleasure last evening of witnessing a part of the new grand drama, which has been in preparation for a long time past at the Bowery Theatre, entitled the " Sea King's Vow, or the Female Liberty Chief.'' It is produced on the stage with new oostuiiM and scenery, and is, with the exception of the piece which has been withdrawn to make room for it, the most Interesting drama that we have seen on this stage ? "- tftna As we eXDectert house was extremely full on the occasion, and we are prepared to see It as full every night of the repetition of the new piece. It will be played again this evening, witfc the comedy of a " tflfe's First Lesson," and that of " Crossing the Line, or the Dutch Brothers." Chatham Theatre.?Miss Vallee and Mr. De Bar were honored with a very large audience last eveniag, at the Chatham Theatre, and they were every way deserving of the compliment. We never saw them to better advantage ?Miss Vallee particularly. This young lady has attained an elevation in her profession which Inables her to fill any heuse in which she may be engaged. As the Drunken Corporal and the Dumb Girl of Genoa, both she and Mr. De Bar were very happy The bill of last evening will be repeated to-night For me iniormation 01 sucn as uia nm nee 11 iasi evening, we may say that it comprises the "Dumbtiirl of Genoa," the ballet of the " Spirit of the Fountain," and the domestic drama, the "Mill of Rylanii," with several danced by Miss Vallee. Circus?Bowery Amphitheatre.?The equestrian performances which Mr. Tryon bring* forward at hla circus every evening, are of the highest order, and from the extensive patronage he enjoys from the public, he is always enabled to keep the best talent in the country around him. We do not hesitate to say that a better regulated and managed circus has never before existed in New York. Family parties may be sure of enjoying themselves here, as the performances are all perfectly void of vulgarity or coarseness. The great Shaksperlan clown, Dan Rice, and M. Casimlr, the French drummer, with the usual splendid equestrian feats in the ring, are the features in this evening's bill. Kthiovian Skrehaderi.?To a person who is an observer of human nature, it is really quite an event to attend one of the toiritt of these witty sons of song. The audienoe seem so thoroughly to enter into the enjoyment of the thing?here you will see a grave lawyer who, having left his suits and pleas at his office, sits, to use a homely phrase. " tiokled to death" bv I'eil and (Sermon's witticisms. There a wise dootor who has left his patients to themselves, and is himself taking a " black draught" composed of materials not mentioned in the pharmacopeia, vi* : ' Lucy Neal" or " Picayune Butler," or " Mary Blane," or some of Harrington's favorite airs; and in some quiet corner, perhaps, may be seen some reverend gentleman who thinks it not beneath his cloth to partake of a little Innocent amusement. So it is. The Kthlopian Serenaders, by their highly finished and delightful singing, attract most reapeotable and oversowing audiences, and long may they continue to do so. To-night they have an excellent bill. Christy's Mii??tricl?.?Among the multitude of attractions which are now spread before tin people of this city, none seem to fare better than this band of songsters. They have oreated a perfect furore among the conoert going many, and from the nature of their performances they do not offend the prejudices of those who are conscientiously opposed to every thing theatrioul luasnug room where excellent order is observed by the Intelligent audiences. It is really delightful to pass an evening listening to the ever favorite negro songs which Christy's band render 10 well To-nigbl they give, as usual, an admirable programme. Mr. Dempsrm'j Concert.?It must not be forgotten that Mr. D. will give another of his delightful isirees tomorrow evening, at the Tabernacle His programme includes many of his most favorite pieces, uot forgetting his glorious cantata, the ' May Queen." Mr D is so popular among New Yorkers, both as a performer and a man that we have no doubt be will have a full house. He fully deserves one Sihuor Bi.iti ?Away down South there Is a club oalled the " Can't getaway Club " We think th?

Dr. Jaiui then rosa and said. that the oommittaa on j canoni had instructed him to lay b-fore the houaa two ' very important autyeota, ona of whioh might probably tend to bring about the peaoe of the diocese of New I York He then submitted a canon In favor of auffragan bishops, and moved that the House of Bishops be requested to appoint a joint oommittee on said canon, and if tbey concur, that the committee on canons be that committee on the part of this bous* Mr. Couton was opposed to the introduction of ?w:_u --?~?.l ?

Key. Dr. Hawki ftaid that this canon weuld dispense entirely with assistant bishops lie had always believed that suffragan bishops were preferable. The canon had been prepared by the committee with great care. He I approved entirely with the main object of the canon; | hoped the resolution to refer it to a committee would ! paw. Mr. Comton was still opposed to haying this measure < brought in for final action so near the close of the session, when they were wearied out with important business. He should prefer that it be laid over to the next session Dr. Hawks oould see nothing to be gained by laying itovrr. If the house were disposed to lay it over, however, he had nothing to say Ilev Dr Bhooxk sugg.*ted that the discussion was out of order, and that the resolution to curtail debate took precedence The Chair concurred in this view, but said that the strict rule of order had been waived to admit the report of the committee on canons. The Sechktahv moved to lay on the table the unfinished business of Saturday, to take up the report of the committee on canons, which beiug carried, the resolution to appoint a joint committee was passed. Kev. Dr. Jabvis then reported further, that the committee considered the canon which they had reported would heal the existing difficulties of the diocese of New Vnrlr 'I'liMu further mnnrtml M resolution, atatinif that it wan inexpedient to make the numerous changed which had been proposed in a great number of canons. On motion of the Sk< hetahv, the resolution was laid on the table for the present, in order to take up the un11 nished business of Saturday. lion. Mr Huwti.noto*. of Connecticut, then moved to take up the unfinished business, so far as regarded the time of taking the final vote on the resolutions of the diocese of New York Me explained the question to be his own motion to take the final vote at-2 o'clock to-day, amended by the motion of Mr. Craik, of Kentucky, to limit each speaker to half an hour. . Rut. Dr. Imou hoped the resolution would not prevail. Though he did not propose to speak on the subject himself, there were others who did, and he lelt desirous to hear them, and to have the subject fully and amply discussed, lie felt the importance of bringing the convention to a close. Some of the clergy were enjoying the expensive hospitality of the hotels, and were likely to have thuir pockets exhausted; and they were very desirous to be relieved from their "anomalous position.'' [Laughter.] Me felt the weight of this and other considerations, in favor of bringing their deliberations to a close as soon as possible But he also felt deeply the importance of the subject before the the house, and was willing to make same sacrilloe to bring it to a satisfactory olose. They of the clergy had an oppor unity to preset) to the laity.twioe a week, but the laity an opportunity to# preaoh to them only once in three years. He hoped their common sense views might be heard. He hoped the motion of the gentleman from Connecticut would not preVtiil. ltev. Mr. URiswoi.d conceived that the gentleman had mentioned some of the most important reasons for

limiting the debates. It was true tnat the clergy had un opportunity to preaoh to the laity twioe a week, and he, for one, should be glad to listen to the la'ty on this occasion ; but ho hop?il the gentleman would remember that if their sermons exceeded half an hour they were generally considered pretty tedious.?[Renewed laughter ] Mr. Hudson moved that the questions on taking the final vote, and limiting the speakers , be divided, and added a few remarks. Mr. Mcmminmcr would suggest to th? gentleman, whether it would not be better to amend the resolution to 1J o'clook to-day. Mr. HuwTii?aTON was willing to make it 9 o'clock to-night. Judge jopfks hoped the resolution would net prevail. It was no argument to contend that gentlemen were obliged to go home. It was their duty to remain in convention until the business was finished, and they should make provision accordingly. Mr. Qallaoher moved to lay the motion, to take the question at 9 o'olook to-night, on the table. A division of the house being demauded, the question was oarried, 67 to 66. A message was here received from the House of Bishops, stating that they conourred in confirming the nominations of the Trustees of the General Theological Seminary, as mado by the several dioceses. The motion to take the final vote at twelve o'clock to-morrow, was then renewed, put and carried. Rev. Mr. Vail then proposed a new canon, empowering the convention of the diocese of New York to elect a bishop from their diocese, to have jurisdiction as long as the sentenoe of suspension should continue in force, and providing that if the bithop should be restored, the relative jurisdiction of the two bishops should be decided by the House of Bishops. On motion, the proposition was laid on the table, and th? Rev. Dr. Mhon, of North Carolina, addressed the ; lions*. The quutlon w?? whether the aot of suspension which had passed, necessarily vacated jurisdiction. He 1 thought it did not; he then proceeded to review the re marks of the gentleman from Louisiana (L)r. Hawks.) ? First, with regard to perpetual suspension, there could be no doubt that the testimony which he adduced proved that perpetual suspension was the same as deposition. The Rev. gentleman from New Jersey (Dr. Ogllby) brought forward testimony of a oontrary nature. Doctors disagreed. He wan inclined, however, to take the authorities of the Rev. gentlemui< from Louisiana, aud proceeded to giy? his reasons for so doing. Though his learned friend from Louisiana had erected anoblestructure, he did not say that it was built upon the sand, aad that he himself would be the first to put the -crowbar under It and tear it down. Vet, In the course of his remarks he did so. He destroyed his own argument as regarded the dilfe rrnce between perpetual suspension and degradation. Dr. M. maintained that in nriny cases the suspension must be indefinite. He argued that indefinite suspension did not vacate jurisdiction. Temporary suspension could not take away jurisdiction, as some gentlemen had admitted, and aa all must admit. The bishop's own act, aa he illustrated, might take him away irom the exercise of his jurisdiction, and yet not take It away. He did not know, nor did he remember a single example in the whole history of the Church of Christ, in which limited suspension or even indefinite suspension, did destroy jurisdiction They bad many examples-some of which gentlemen had cited to the contrary. His reverend brother had argued, that in the case of Lord Keeper Williams, the jurisdiction reverted first to the said archbishop, and thence to the king. Would the reverend gentleman, or any one on that floor, contend that jurisdiction was derived solely from the secular power? He was surprised to hear such language used. [The hour of twelve having having arrived, the ohair Announced the order of the day?the election of trustees for the General Theological Seminary. On motion, the order was suspended, to allow the Ilev. Doctor to conclude bis remarks. ]' Dr. Mason proceeded to state his views on the question of jurisdiction The command of the Saviour, " Go ye into all the world," Sin., he said, was not given to the laity, but to the clergy ; so that the clergy, the apostles alone, had power to confer jurisdiction. Now in the case of the apostles, jurisdiction was not at first limited. They preached as missionaries wherever they had an opportunity ; but they soon found it necessary to make some arrangement among themselves by which their labors might be divided geographically, and suoh an arrangement was made, one preaching to the circumcised and the other to the uucircumsed. &o. He pro(wM to show bow local jurisdictions arose in the early period of the chu'ch. He then reviewed the arguments of various speakers, and said he must conclude,the word suspension, as used in the sentence, did not mean perpetual suspension, lie argued from a consideration of the history of the church and from analogies drawn from military and naval life, that indefinite suspension, carried to its utmost extent, did not destroy jurisdiction. Tho house, he insisted, should be guided by correct prln ripm, una enueavor ro ao mat wnicn was rignt. 'mat whioh was right would always be found to be most expedient. They had bettor do nothing than do wrong II* argueii in favor of the purity of the church and of the bench of bishops in particular, from the oonnideratiou that they bad erred in regard to the fentence ol' tiie bishop because they had no precedent of thii kind No such case had ever bafore occurred. The church in thin country had been k?pt pure. He hoped they would now make provision which would effeotuaiiy guard against each difficulties in future. Th? diocese of New Vork were, It was true, enveloped in n dark cloud of difficulties; bnt it was owing to no crime on the part of the house of bishops; it wm simply owing to a sin of ignorance Let them, as did the ancient Jew*, offer up the srcrlflce of their prayers and humble entreaties, and they might confidently look for a happy result Hon I II lnoi:n>oLL then addressed the house In support of the two canons whioh he had offered It was do objection to the course proposed that the rtlacese whs divided N'nanimlty should not be opected in popular < lections, and this wasof the name nature, unaniinitv was not to be expected It was seldom attained The two canons which he had proposed, presented the two alternatives? the restoration of tha bishop, or the elootlon of a new diocesan (Mr I here quoted Oibson on tha quastlon of jurisdiction.] One would think, he said, that there could not ba language stronger than that of the sentence of the court itself Ho would show that it waa all comprehensive, so ks to deprive the bishop of all?all the functions of a bishop. 1'ermlt him to say, however, that it was not necessary to prove a vacancy before they proceeded to vote ile argued that tha ancient church made provision for a restoration In the case of deposition even. Their canon (the :uth of 183J) did not so provide. Hsoontendod that the sentences found upon tne bishops of Pennsylvania and New York were identical Then, according to the argffments of gentlemen, some legislation must be had in regard to the bishop of I'ennryivania Mr. 1 here quoted AylifT, page JOT, whioh *aid that removal imin office or benlflce was "a perpetual deprivation" Kurthor quotations showed, as other gentlemen had dona, that suspension was equivalent to degradation in some , cases. The bond between the bishop and the diocese was not broken in such a way that he might not by some porsi| billty, bo restored at some future time. He could not ' agree with the gentleman who had called upon them to , fold tbelr arms and do nothing They were bound to act There was no excuse for inaotlon. It was their solemn duty to decide the question. The diocese of New Vork called upon them to aot. Whether the action be uuaDimous or not, It would be right If It pro! reeded from proper motives, and would receive the sanction of the groat ll?#d of the < buruh. Th?y rount deI . Id# wb?tb*r they should alild* by ths itrlat Utter of | principles (*v tlielf tuid* )U trusted they would not imitate the precedent of ;? tantine, who declared, that if he found a bishop guilty of the foulrst stain, he would throw over him the covering of the Imperial purple. The power of Constantine had goo* by. Kev. Dr. 0<jilb* then rote to speak, but the the Chair decided in favor of Mr. Hudson, of Western New York. Dr. Ouilby yielded with some reluetanos, and Mr. Hi'Dion proceeded. He had listened with profound attention to the argument which had been put forth; and inasmuch an the subject had undergone a protracted and able debate, he should not speak to ho full an extent as he had at first contemplated. The house had laid aside all the proposition# which had been laid before them, and oonoluded to discuss the question _l.il. ?Y-.. J1 >!<? ....... tlon he proposed to direot his remarks. He contended that the diocese was both abnolutely aud virtually vacant, or else it was vacant in neither sense Gentlemen had disentombed wild theories and vagaries which had Hleptfor fourteen hundred years. He did not Intend to imitate their example. He believed that their own canon* made ample provision for the case. The gentleman from Louisiana said that if the bishop was to resume his duties in the diocese, he would immediately be brought up for contumacy,and be immediately deposed; and so (argued Mr. H ] he gave up his whole argument. (Sensation.) Another gentleman had argued that the standing committee had done an act which was unlawful by procuring assistant uplacvpal servioe, while they at the same time time declared that the diocese was not vacant. He did not agree to the opinion at all. If they had done an unlawful act, why not bring them up for trial at once' These considerations, and others whioh ho named, had led him to believe that there was no vacancy; and if there was no vacancy, It was admitted on all hands that thay oould not prooeed te an election. But as to the diocesan of New York, he believed that the best course would be to pass the canons whioh had been recommended, and leave the diooese to act as they might -see tit uuder their oanoni. He believed that if the bishops lived up to the sentiments whioh they professed, to fear God and love mercy, they would relieve the diocese fiom their difficulties He then proceeded to quote the opinions of various biuhops, given at the time of the trial of Bishop (Juderdouk? concurring in the view that suspension would not dissolve the bond of union which existed between the bishop and his diocese, although it might deprive him of the power of exercising the duties of the ofioo. Gentlemen had referred to the case of the bishop as guilty of crime. He had never been convioted of crime. The sentence said nothing about crime. Why then attempt to make it appear that he bad committed crime? To return to the argument. They bad the opinion of four bishops that the diocese was not vaoaut. Again, the whole House of Bishops had juat deolared their opinion of the sentence, by the recent adoption of the oanon. which colnotded with his views. He conceived that the church had brought reproach upon herself, bv the course of events which had transDired since the senteuce of suspension was pronounced upon Bishop Onderdonk. Greater liberties bad been taken with the clergy since that period. It was his judgment that every protraoted discussion, like that which they were then engaged In, would aggravate these evils lie hoped, therefore, that all undue excitement would be avoided, and that, rather than bring reproach upon the church, they would yield their prejudices to the commou good. It being past :i o'clock, oa motion, the house took a recess till7 o'clock. Evknino Skssion. On reassembling at 7 o'clock, the president took the chair, and oalled the convention to order. The house proceeded to the order of the evening, being the election of a committee on the part of the house, to act with a oommittee of the House of Ilishops in nominating a Board of Missions. Rev. JUr. Van lnacn and Mr. Collins were appointed tellers, and the ballottlng having been concluded, the tellers retired. On motion, the debate was then prooeeded with. Mr. Mkmminocb then addressed the house, lie had a hope that there were a sufficient number among them that would be governed by reason up to the time of giving their votes, lie had not a doubt but that there were many men now before him, who were anxious to act in oontormity with the truth. He confessed that he looked upon this question in a different hspeot from that in wnich it had been viewed by most of the speakers. He was induced to ask for what purpose were bishops created- b'or what bad they come together in convention ! To divide the loaves and Ashes f No. He came believing that he came to a convention of the Church of (Jod. He came to build it up. It was to this church their counoils were directed. Were they to divide the word ? Were they to say that they had a right to deny any one portion ot that over which he had made them the guardians? Here were thousands around them famishing for the bread of life, while they were contending about the interest* of one. He waB a friend to Kpiacopaliaaism ; but he regarded the interests of the wnole. While this question had been agitated in the diooese. how many souls, he asked, bad been called to appear before their.Uod! And yet they talked of being Kpiscopalians. Any one who undertook to say that any diocese should not have a bishop did not do his duty?did not obey the commandments. He held that all men had Inalienable rights, and spiritual riehts were as inalienable as civil rights; civil institu lions stood upon the same foundation as spiritual. Ha could show if he had time, that in the bosom of the Kpiscopal church was the seed from which germinated all representative governments. If gentlemen would examidc the history of the Kpiscopal church they would find the principles of oivil government tie maintained than, inthat the church had no right to refuse the diocese of New York a bishop. Mad New York a bishop.' If she had a bishop, she was not destitute of a bishop. If it be true that she was not destitute, then the constitution declared that they should send no bishop to her. Take the other horn of the dilemma?admit that she wis destitute of a bishop?then she was entitled to one: and it was the duty of the church to supply one. Gentlemen said they intended to supply one.? How? By a provisional bishop? The people of New fork had as good a right to a bishop as any other State. Why, then, put them off with a provisional bishop? Why offer them the occasional | service* of a bishop of another diocese? Dut there was no need of legislation of this kind The canon provided for a provisional bishop, in case of I iinatitnt.inn Wliw Lhnn make a canon ? What would bo Mill of them then if they should make a cation ? It would be laid they were convinced that there was no need of a new canon; but they wanted to restore the bishop. Now he did not wish suoh an impression to go ! abroad. He did not believe there were ten men there who desired the restoration of the bishop. How could | they restore the bishop, till he oontessed his sins and repented of them ? The church was convinced of his guilt, ; and had passed sentence accordingly How then could I they who preached from Sabbath to Sabbath that there was no mercy, except by penitence and through (ihrlst. restore him to the church before he gave evidence of penitent ? He hoped they would maintain the purity of the church The only remnant of divine purity left with this fallen race, was bound up in the female heart He hoptd the ohurch then would take all proper means to protect tills female purity. The Bishop of New York had been convicted of certain orimes. Mr. Hudso.i desired to correct the gentleman; the bishop liad not been convicted of any crime. TbeCiiAiii called the gentleman to order. The guilt or innocenoe of the Bishop of New Y ork had nothing to d" with the question before them; and, therefore, any reference to this point fU OUttf order. Mr. Mcmmimobr stood oorrected. The bishop had been guilty of certain immoralities, and was suspended. The diocese was deprived of his services. They were bound, then, to make some provision. Now, what was a bishop.' A bishop embraced three different things?his order -his office?and his territory When the apostles were called together to elect a bishop in the place of Judas Iscariot. they appointed one; but had he any loeal jurisdiction? No. But this arrangement was foand to be very inconvenient, and the bishops were subsequently appointed over certain dioceses. The office of a bishop, and his special jurisdiction, were one thing?the local jurisdiction another?the arrangement of the church, and not a divine arrangement. A man might be a bishop at large, without having any terrilori.il jurisdiction. A bishop must be admitted to the House of Bishops, b?fore he should be a ruler in Israel, or have any power in the church. Whenever any form of government gave to any body of men exclusive rights, tacit conditions were always annexed to those rights. Me quoted Bishop Hobart, to show the republioau form of the government of the Episcopal Churoh They need not have recourse, then, to civil analogies. The Churoh was the parent of republicanism, as he had before statvd, and possessed within herself all necessary principles The canon said, that when a bishop was elected to the House of Bishops, he should be eligible to the office of a diocesan bishop?making it evident that a dinoesati bishop had some power which a general bishop had not. But when Bishop Ondsrdonk was suspended why could not the diocese proceed to elect another bishop? Why, gentlemen contended that he was subject to a restoration. Now, he contended, that this was a matter of contract. The jurisdiction of the bishop was a subjeot of oontract. Now he believed that the diotese had a right to any to the bishop that he had violated his contract, and, therefore, that they had power to elect another bishop Gentlemen confounded things when they talked ot benefices They had nothing to do with benefices Their province was to le glsiate with regard to spiritual affairs, not temporal The doctrine for which he contended, was laid down by one of the greatest jurist* which they had ever lived Justice Stowell had declarej iu the Supreme Court, that tbe parties to contract nnouiu perioral inn conditions of the contract. And if they refused to cunforin to those conditions, it was lawful to lake back the charter The principle was recognised iu all civil proceeding* In conformity with ttiis principle, ii the bishop bad violated the conditions of bis contract, those who put him in office had a rt^bt to put him ut. To turn to another point,he whs sat prised that gentlemen tihoulo contend that suspension aud degradation were Identical Degradation left no hope; suspnusiou wan a ipn rtcu/)rruniti. He should suppose lb t the very first page ol the Bible would teach them the imuieuse difference between tbe terms; Adam tell Irom tbe good estate in which be was created; but there was a hope left. They were all? all tbe human race, in a state of suspension. But they were not degraded, fur there was a hope ot restoration held out by the orossof Christ. Now the bishopof the diooese of New York was suspended from all office In the chureb of Uod. Being thus suspended, the right of tbe diooese interfered Alter s?me further remarks elucidating his position, he said the proposition of the gentleman from I'a., covered the whole ground, and did justice to all concerned The one cauon which he proposed, gave the House of Bishops power to restore a bishop; the other aanon gave the diooese power to elect a bishop. The offloe of a bishop was that of a servant; hU business wm to feed his people with the bread of life. He desired gentlemen to Keep before them the great leading doctrines which the Saviour had laid down, and they would be kept right The bishop was made for his olltoe, and hi* office win hix duty, aud not his right; and If be could not discharge liin duty, put him out, said he. He was for law and order, and would not have a whole diocese kept without a bishop, out of sympathy for a suspended bishop. In all cases of legislation they had to treat things as they found thum; if they had two evils before them they had to choose the least, they must faror tbe inuocent. Let him conjure the house not to separate without affording some relief to the diocese of N. \ork The resolution of tbe gentleman from i'a, he repeated, did give relUf to all psrtles If they could not agree to that, he doubted whether they would be able to agre. upon anything. He hoped gentlemen would not allow their sympathy for the bishop to do Injustice to the . t t # The telltrg then r?poft?4 th? mult of th# lection fol tb* *JNl?a*rjr commits Of U* eleriy, had votad, mikbif 14 iniwrj to ft choioa.

Dr OoiLsr rose and offered a few remark*. The gentleman who had laat addressed them, told them that Christ then gar* the cammand to one of hi* apostles, ' Koed my iambe " If he remembered right it waa to tha lame apostle who thrloa sinned Did any culprit ever sin more ' He then proceeded to review the argument* af several speaker* of the day. He now submitted to the learned jvriats of the house that when a man was hung, If by some accident the noose should slip, and the culprit should fall to the ground before he was dead ? that if the sentence of the court did not contain the word* " hung by the neok till he be d??d," all the sh< riffs in Christendom oould not put him up again. There hud been a great deal of mystery thrown about the term - perpetual suspension." Gentlemen might almost infer that It wa? eternal suspension. He submitted that it was simply indefinite suspension. The word suspension had never been used exoept with a limitation, except in oertain few cum occurring in the middle agee, and re ferred to by his brother from Leuisiuna. He would add a few word<. with regard to jurisdiction. After again stating his view of the subjeot, he said the jurisdiction of a bishop was of far more lmportanee than that of a rector, though the latter was entitled to much greater consideration than was generally given. He wished to be oontidured as the representative of no party; he had blamed New York when he thought she deserved It; he justified her whenever her conduot entitled her to it. The tellers then reported the election of the Kev Dr. Vinton and Mr. Appleton, as further members of the missionary committee?leaviug one vacancy still ? whereupon, on motion of the secretary, the house proceeded to ballot a third time, the result of which was the election of the Kev. Dr. Bowman?so that the committee now consists of the Kev. Drs. Hankel, Vinton and Bow. nun, on the part of the clergy, and the Hon. Messrs. Huntington, Donaldson and Appleton, on the part of the Isity. It being past ten o'olook, on motion the convention then adjourmed to this morning at half-past 9. City Intelligence.

We have never before, on such ocoasions, seen the htil so crowded as it was last night; and, from all appearances, the lectures of the coming session will be listened to by upwards ot 600 students. This is oheering to New York The subject of the lecture which Dr. Vlott delivered last evening, was a peculiarly interesting one: it.was an eulogium on the character of the late Professor Revere, who died early in the spring.

VVe have no doubt that the lecture Will be published before the session is over, and it will be peculiarly interesting to the many practitioners new scattered over the Union who have listened to his teachings At the olese of the eulogium, Dr. Mott alluded to the selection the oouneil of the University bad made to fill Dr. Revere'i chair; it ii Dr Dickaon, from Charleston, S.
