Adjournment of tin L'giilature. The Legislature adjourned tine die to day at half put three o'clock The hour of 12 was fixed for the floal adjournment; but It became apparent that an extension of the time was necessary, and It aooordingly was extended to two o'olook. About fifty bills, some important, bat nearly all pri ate and looal bills, remain unacted upon. 1 herewith transmit the titles of the seTeral bills which h*T? passed at the extra session. The oloee of this Legislature was like its commencement ; it came in in a tumult, and it went out in a tumult. In the House, at a little before two o'olock, P. M. the following resolution was offered by Mr. Perkins, of the 81. Lawrence : Resolved, That the thanks of this house be tendered to the lion, the speaker, for the able, diguifled, andim puriiu manner la wnica n i nan uisoaarged las duties of his oflloe, during the session of tha House now about to be terminated. Mr Ruthkrford objected to tbe passage ?f the resolution ; he denied that the Speaker had been impartial; be offered the following amendment to the resolution of Air. Perkins : ? Whereas. Certain members of this House have obtained the floor on various ooo 'sions during tbe session, to the exclusion of other members, by some system of legerdemain, inscrutable to the mover of this resolution, and in direot violation of tha promised Impartiality of the Speaker on tls taking tha obair? Therefore, Resolved, That It would be hypooritiual in us, and unjust to other persons who have discharged the duties devolving uoon the obair with impartiality, to vote a resolution of thanks (through mere courtesy) to one who has not discharged the functions of that office in like manner. Mr. Rutherford then proceeded to advocate his resolution at length, though it wanted but two minutes to two o'oiok, (the hour of adjournment.) He continued to speak till two o'olock, with a view of staving off the resolution of thanks. At two o'clock some pertson, by pass log up into the ohamber where the tirmsof tbe Supreme Court are held, succeeded In turning the hands of the clock back a quarter of an hour. Mr. Rutherford, who ocoupied the floor, cried out, " Mr Speaker, 1 see the clock going back ; this Legislature is defunot ; it is now [looking at his watcbj three minutes after two. and I demand the enforcement of the resolution of adjournment ?I saw the clock going back.M (Tremendous laughter ) Several gentlemen desired to know where tbe gentleman saw the clock going to. No notice was taken of the amendment offered by Mr. Rutherford. The previous question was moved upon the resolution of thanks offered by Mr. Perkins; several protesed against the adoption of that resolution, b ut it was was finally carried Resolved, unanimously, That the thanks of this House be presented to I'hiiander B. Prindle, Esq , clerk of the Assembly, for the able and aourteous manner in whloh he has discharged his duties during the present session. i nm resolution was aaopieu oy acclamation, ana never was a resolution of thanks more .worthily bestowed The usual committees were 'appointed, and at 2X o'clock the Legislature adjourned. 1 shall have more to say to-morrow. Albakt, Deoembsr 14,1847. 7/t* Democratic Legiilative Caucus. A oaucus of the demooratio members of the Legislature waa held in M>? Senate Chamber -last evening, at 7 o'olook. As the olook struck seven, Mr. Barlow, of the Senate, (a radical democrat) rose and moved that Mr. Dennision, the ohalraum of a former demooratio oauous, be> appointed chairman of this caucus. Mr. Jones vuggeste 1 that it would be well to wait un til Mr. Beers, of the 8enate (the ohairman of the joint canons committee) should arrive. Mr. Baklow, however, immediately put the question to the oanoni upon his own motion, and declared it oarried. At that moment, Mr. Bebm appeared in the Senate Chamber, and assumed the ohtir; he remarked that the time lor the organisation of the cauous had arrived, and that it would be necessary to appoint a chairman Then there arose a jangle and a dispute among th? radicals and conservatives, all of whom pretend to be democrats, about the election of a ohairman. In this little emeute, all the most aged Senators and the most prominent mHmbers of the lower houso participated. The hostility whiob the sections entertain fur each otkMir, manifested Itself In a more aorld and unpleaslng form tabn ever. Why do these seotions attempt to oembine or to harmonise? Why, when it is plain that they can never not in unison, wiu tney not tbtuiion all nop? 01 reconOlIWilW The oauouo finally agreed that the roll xhould be oalled, and that each member should nominate a chairman viva roct; the result wan that Mr. Boers received <13 vote*, and Mr. Denniston 38 votes. Mr. Beers was therefore declared to be fleeted chairman. Mr Talcott laid ha supposed that thli caucus was oalled for the purpose of hearing the report of the committee who were appointed to prepare an address and resolutions to the democratic electors of the State; he moved that the oommittee be Instructed to present their address and resolutions. Mr Jokei Intimated that the State convention called at Utlca in February next, to appoint delegates to the national convention at Baltimore, bad been oalled at a period whioh was too early for the convenience of the democracy of the State. He hoped that this Htate convention would be oalled at some later and more convenient day. He moved that the resolution adopted at the last caucus, calling the oonventlon in February next, be now rescinded. A question of precedence was now raised. The conservatives desired to have the motion of Mr. Jones considered by the caucus before the presentation of the address and resolutions: ud the radicals desired to have the address and resolutions first aeted upon Mr. Walsh observed that the caucus having been oalled to hear the report of the oommittee appointed to undoubtedly first in order. A motion that the oommittee be instructed to prsient their report witbont delay, waa then adopted. Mr. Bkkkman, the chairman of the committee, then took hia stand at the clerk's desk, and read the radical address and resolutions. Th? address is of immense length, and I 11 nd that the labor of copying it need not neoessarilv be incurred. It presents a complete review of the political history of this State during the last (jnaitar of a century ; it also fully endorses the principle embodied in the Wllmot proviso ; and In relation to the origin of the war with Mexico it oontalns the following equivocal language A war preoipitated by aa adjoining Tepublie, aft* r a long series of aggressions, and oommenosd by the Invasion < f territory in the occupation of our troops?repelled by us. and pursued In a career ef victories never surpassed in brilliancy or in the heroism of onr soldiery, yet imposing, with each advancing step, serious and Impressive responsibilities." Such is the language used in allusion to the war. It is not neoesMry to advert more fully to the oharacter of this address, which displays marks of distinguished ability- The following are the resolutions whioh were presented by the oommittee immediately after the reading of the address : ? Resolved, That a faithful review of ths flnanolal policy of the democratic party of this State, lor twenty years past, furnishes a triumphant vindication of its wisdom and Its adequacy to subserve the public interest Ilesolved. That the only safe basis of organisation is a trict adherence to the soundest principles of eooaomy, justice and equity, and the selection of honeet agents to oarry out those principles in the administration ef the government. Resolved, That while the achievements of our armies in the present war havs won ths gratitnde of our common country, they have proved the indomitable courage and valor of the American soldier, whether offlsercr private, and shed new lustre on our fame In arms Resolved. That the coolness and intrepidity of our rviuutver suiui^tr, rxuiuuru uu bv uumuj u?bbi? ubiub iu Mexico, have not only vindicated the character of the national militia a* a lore# provided by the coostitiiUon to quail domestic iiuurrrellou and rep?l foreign Invailons,bat have domoniUated it* capability to win distinguished honor* In a foreign lard, in conflict with dl?oipllned adversaries Resolved, That ' tha encouragement of agricultura, and of oommeiae M it* hanlmald. ' should be a primary ot jaot with Amerioau statesmen. and that all schemes of debt, national paper, profuie expen-llturee. and deceptive taxa'.lnn, having a tendency to burden the one or cripple the other, are not within tha province of wIm and equal legislation. Resolved, That tha patronage of tha ganaral government baa grown to proportions so vaat, pervading, and omplioated, aa to endanger the freedom of eieotlona and the purity of tha pablio press, and ihould therefore be subjected to tha aeveraat process of retrencnment and nMB lleaolved, Thit all imputations npon the demooracy of thfk State, ooine !rom what qa irter they may, that Ma patriotic masses are in favor of the extension of slavery into territoriM aow free, are bold lovenlons of open adversarlea or Mnret foes; that we regard each extension as derogatory to tha principle of nataral juatlce. subversive of the right* and Interests of the free laboring iiannwn ui iu? nunn, su<a n HI WI HI uie policy '>(*' bllshed by the fathers of the republic, In the ordinsace of 1787, for the government of the northweetern territory?a poller, the wladom of whleh hu been proved end illustrated by the unprecedented growth ud prosperity of the noble States north of the Ohio river, and by the iatelllgence, patriotism, and energy of their population Resolved, That our confidence remain* unshaken In the wladom*nd sound policy which originated and established the great flnanolal measure of the demooratio party, denominated the independent treasury ; and we tender oar thanks to the Preeldent for reonmmendlng. and to the demooratio majority of the last Congress for re-enaeting and restoring, this truly demooratio and salutary measure, by whloh tlie people have beoome agtin vested, through tholr own agents, with the control of their own money. Unsolved, That while we profess a political faith which inoulcatrs unyielding adherence to the rights of the States, and an uuoompromlslng hostility to all tendenclee to a consolidation of powers In the federal government, we can lend no countenance to schemes calculated or designed to fritter away or jeopard the just influenoe and suffrage of our own common wealth in her relations with her sister States ; and that with thess views, we are led Irresistibly to approve the resolution adopted by the Demooratio State Convention in IMS, W YO TORK, SATURDAY MOR declaring the settled policy of the State, that delegate* ' to national conventions. nhould be delected by State conventions, and not by Congrrsalonal districts. Resolved. That the administration of James K Polk wan elerated to power by the energies of the democratic party, aroused to a mighty effort to aeoure the triumph of the true principles of the constitution; and that while we tender to the first magistrate of the nation an eurauce of our cordial oo-operation in all honorable ef forte to maintain thoae principles, we congratulate our fellow citizens on the aucceaa of thoae a&lutary measures of commercial and financial freedom which his election ha* achieved. Resolved, That It la the deliberate opinion of the democratic members of thla Legislature, that CongreM Is ns fully authorized to expend money in improving harbors on the great lakes, us on the Atlantic ocean: and that the aentimenta contained lp Mr. Wright's letter to the Chicago convention in regard to the expend!tuies for the Improvement of river and lake harbor*, and for the paaaage of separate bills for the purpose, commend themselves to the approval of every fair miMueu m?u. Resolved, That we ad' ere to the sound dootrine contained in the Maysville veto against appropriating the revenues of the uitional government 16 the construction of roads tud canals within the bounds of theseparate States. The address and resolutions having been read, a member moved that the; be adopted. Another member called for a division of the question. Mr. Clark, of the Senate, enquired of the Chairman of the Committee, whether the address and resolutions were unanimously concurred in by the oommittee. Mr. Bkkkman replied affirmatively. Mr. Lanooh, (one of the committee.) Intimated to Mr B , that, he had objected t j the resolution relatlong to the subiect of slavery. The Chairman then stated the question to be upon the adoption of the address. Mr. Sickles said he approved of the address generally, but there were seme parts of it whloh be did not approve; it artfully, but decidedly, endorsed and approved the principle embodied in the Wilmot proviso; the oommittee must have been perfectly aware that a considerable portion of the democratic party were unalterably epposed to the agitation of the question of slavery. Col Yeinvu?In this State, sir' Mr. Siorkls ? Yes, sir, the democratic party In this State. Mr S also objected to the address, upon other grounds?upon grounds relating to the origin of the war with Mexico; he denounced the allusion to this subjeot in the address, as a (atire, and a slur upon eur cause, in conclusion, he remarked, that under the ciroumetancss, he felt bound to offer a substitute to the address and resolutions just presented and read by the chairman of the committee regularly appointed to prepare an address and resolutions. Mr Youmi asked leave to make a suggestion. Mr. Sicklks yielded the floor tor the purptse of allowing the gentleman to make a suggestion Mr. Young said it was very apparent that we oould not agree upon an address and resolutions which would bd signed by all; be did not believe that if the aldress and resolutions, just read, were adopted by a majority, they would be signed by all. It would, therefore, be a mere waste of time to attempt to aggree; matters of principle were at stake, and it was Impossible to agree He hoped, therefore, that the members of the caucus would be allowed to sign either address, without reference to the adoption of either by the caucus. Mr. Young was then interrupted by Mr. Sickles, who claimsd the floor. Mr. Youno refused to yield the floor, and the gentle men last named, commenced talking at the lame moment. Great confusion prevailed. Mr. Clark rose to a quettionof order; saveral other gentlemen rose to question* of order. The chair deoided that Mr. Slokles had the floor, except so far as he chose voluntarily to yield it. Mr. Yoitnu appealed from the decision of the chair, but qualified his appeal with the remark that if the ohair hail made suon a decisionon the ground that Mr. Sickles had not ooncluded his speech, he would withdraw it. But he supposed that Mr. 8. bad ooncluded his speeeh, and had offered a substitute to the address which had just been read. An indescribable and undignified seen# of oonfusion ensued. Mr. Lesthh suggested that if the members of the cauous would mot conduet themselves like gentlemen and democrats, they had better adjourn. Mr. Uicles was then permitted to read the conservative address and resolutions. lie did not begin, however, until m radical democrat rose and declared that they were written by Kdwln Croswell and Hen. Stryker, (I think his name was ) Mr. tticKLr.1 pronounced the assertion a falsehood. The addrers of the conservatives, as read by Mr. Hick les, w?? a colu, bloodies*, ana heartless paper, l do not believe there was a line in it dictated by motives of patriotism and purity. The writer ?n evidently an able man, but an ioy and soulless depositary of foul and vindicative feelings. It is not In my power to tarnish a oopy of this extraordinary conservatsve address. The following are the conservative resolutions which were presented to the oaucus l>y Mr. Hiokles, after he had concluded the reading of the address. Resolved, That next to the intelligence of the peopje, aud their adherence to just principles of government, we owe to the demooratio party, its principles, usages, and measures, the signal success whioh has characterised our progress in State government; that in the war of the revolution?In the war of 1812-the reforms of the constitution of 1921 ?threugh ail the period of our internal improvements?in the nompletion and successful operation 01 those great works-in the oonfliot waged by the pstriot Jackson against the designs and efforts ef a gigantic monled power?in all the measures to perfect and maintain a sonnd financial policy in the State government?for the resuscitation of our Unanolal credit, when prostrated by whig misrule and whig excess?and for the rrcent constitutional provisions which protect the people sgalnit the evils of debt and taxation?we recognise the sound course and patriotic efforts of that party. Unsolved, That we regard the union of the deiucrtiretlo party, ahd the restoration of 1U ascendancy in the 8tate government, as rtsentlal tothe permanent well-being of the State; and that we are prepared to make all proper sanrlfices of personal feeling to effect that great objeot. ilesolved, That next to its principles, we regard a strict adhesenoe to the usages of the democratic party, as the most effective means ot restoring its asoendeuey; and that we firmly believe, if we approach this otyect in a conciliatory and forbearing spirit, our recent political defeat will be temporary. l'.esolved, That we reposs fall confidence in the present national administration?that, in our judgment, II has adhered with fidelity to the constitutional principles whkeh form the basis of our government, and which are best adapted to perpetuate and extend its blessings; that the measures on which it has plaoed itself before the Amerioan people, are eminently deserving their support, and will redound to their lasting welfare; and >K<.m a swtr.liul an/1 ..enuaf Resolved. That we allude especially to the policy which rsslsts the oreation of a national bank, and which iiai effected the establishment of an inpependent treiinury, and the passage of the present tariff act; the latter two having gone into full and practioal operation, itnd both having fulfilled the higbent expectations of their friend); and that while the one protects the government from loss, and has prevented, in a period of speculation, the excesses and Inflttion, and consequent embarrassment and depression, which mast hav? followed the us* of the publio money by the banks, the other has justified the estimate and anticipations of it* value, not only by the Increased revenues of the government, but in promoting the stability and prosperity of our manufacturing and industrial Interests. Resolved, That It is alike the dictate of duty and of patriotism to give to the *ovarnmrnt of our country, at til times, a fair and honest support; that It beoomes an imperative obligation to do so at a period of war, in which the rights, the honor, and the interests of the nation are involved; and that no regarding the attitude in which our own government stands towards that of.Mexioo, we wili a there to our country and its administration with our best efforts and energies. Kmoivrd. That, in our judgment, the reeent annual message of President Polk presents not only all the affairs or our own government with great foroe, clearness and truth, but that it places the origin and progress of the war with Maxioa upon grounds which?impregnable In themselves?will receive the warm approval and earnest sapport of every American patriot. Resolved, That standing upon the issue presented by (he last national convention, we regard the annexation or Texas its "a great American measure," ratified by the American people. In the election of James K. Polk and (ieorge M Dallas?eminently right and national in itself?perteatly competent on the part of Texas, as tn iadependeut sovereignty, to seek admission into our l/'oion. while ws were fully authorised, on our part, to rucaivasuoh an addition to our confederation of .States, without affording anv just ground or even a plausible pretext on the part of Mexico, for commencing a war, Invading the territory forming a part of this Union, and shedding American blood on Amsrican soil ; that a war so oommeneed by a nation so long, an aggras lor In other respects, and for so many years, Is jnst, national and unavoidable on the part or this oountry, and will be sustained and carried to a triumphant rtsult, or eur arm; are the glorious precursor* Resolved. That in the proaecutlon of this war. the renown of our arms la only equalled by the humanity of our soldiery and Ibe liberality of our government, ujanlfeeted in Ita repeated offers of generous terms of peace - that those terms, which look not to the ooaquost of Mexico, but to honorable aad juat indemnity, are xuoh as inuat c?nvloo? all impartial men of the luherent juatlce of our oauae, and that it will not only be maintained by the arms, but confirmed by the judgment, of Ihe American nation Resolved, That we fully unite with the Kxeoutlre of the United Mates in the declaration that " the doctrine of no territory la the doctrine of no Indemnity, and If aanctloned, will be a public acknowledgment that our country vraa wrong, and that the war declared by Congrew, with extraordinary unanimity, was unjuat, and should be abandoned?an admission unfounded in faot, and ilegrndinc to the national character." Resolved, That we also concur in the further declaration of the President, that our arms having been ?T ry where victorious?having subjected to our military oneupatlon a large portion of the enemy's country, Including his capital, and negotiations for peace having failed, we should seoure and render available the con<|iii'*ta which we have already made; and that, with thia view, we should hold and occupy, by our naval and military foroes, all the. ports, towns, clttee and provinces now In our occupation, or whioh may hereafter fall into our possession; that we should press forward our military operations, and levy such military aontribu' Ions on the enemy as may, as far as practicable, defray the expenses of ihe war; that to withdraw our army to a designated line, or altogether from the | conquests they have made by deeds of unparalleled bravery, and at the expens* of so muokt blood and treasure, in a just war on RK I NING, DECEMBER 18, 1! our part, and oae which, by the act of the entmj, we could not honorably bav? avoided, would be to degrade the nation In it* own estimation, and in that of the world; and that " the beat meant of vindicating the national honor and interest, and of bringing the war to an honorable close, will be to prosecute Tt with increaaed energy and power in the vital part of tha enemy's ooun- ' K>'?olved, That conspicuous in the exerciaa of high admlniatrative and oflsi&l talent, in the dluoharge of tha arduous and Important dntlea of hi* department, in giving dircotion and tone to the oonduet of war. tha achievements of which ahed imperlibable renown upon the couutry,Wm L Marcy, Secretary of War, to whom, as an able an* fathful cabinet ofBoer, and as a eitlsen of our rit ite. we tender the praise aad approval of his fellow
citizens Resolved, That we cordially reepoad to tha concluding sediment* of the rresident's message, in which ha quotes the words of wisdom and admontlonof the father bis country; that we repeat," that greatest and best of men. who served his country so long, and loved it so much, foresaw with 'serious concern,' tne danger to our Union, of characterizing parties by geographical discrimination?Northern and Southern, Atlantic and Western?wbenoe deslzninz men tpav endeavor to ex oit? ft belief that there la a real difference of local interest* and view*," and warned hla countrymen against It; that we should Indignantly (town upon the first dawning of every atUmpt to alienate any portion of our country from t he rest,or to enfeeble the sacred ties whloh now link together the various parts,"' and that we should scrupulously avoid all agitating topics, whloh may dlstraot and divide ua into contending patties, separated by geographical lines, whereby our great and happy Union may be weakened and endangered " when the reading of the address and resolutions was conoluded, Mr Sk ulks moved that they be adopted in lieu of those offered by the radloals. Mr Dk^hston protested against suoh a step; he declared that it waa unprecedented to dlaoard an addreaa presented by a regularly constituted committee, ftnd to adopt one in ita stead which was prepared by irresponsible persona. Mr BtsiMts, the chairman of the radical committee, also deprecated any auch course aa thai designated by Mr Sioklea Mr. Beekman waa followed by Col. Youwo, ef the Senate Thia venerable aenator aeemed u thrice armed." Never did ho apeftk with more dignity ftnd eloquence ; never were the worda of ftny man better calculated to Inapireaffeotion and reapect for the man who uttered them He entered earnestly and Impressively into ft discussion of those solemn questions whloh ftt present attract all eyes and hearta ; he predloted that the exeoratlons of.the Amerloan people and the olvlllzed world would fall upon the " dough faoes" of the North ; he denied that (Mexico hftving been humbled) there was a'iy danger in agitating questions relating to the introduction of slavery upon newly acquired territory. Mr. Voung was listened to with most Intense interest; his venerable air and bis white locks ahould, ftt leaat, have commanded the reapect of hia opponent* ; but nothing on earth, it. aeema, oan command the reapect of politicians. Mr. Young waa followed by Mr Walsh ; ftnd when he bftd oonoluded hla remarks, whioh showed him In a position altogether aloof from either of the factions, ? grftve radical Senator rose, and recommended a final sud unalterable separation of the aeotlons; this recommendation was reoeived with loud applause by the audience. The conservatives were evidently apprehensive that the radicals would carry the projeot Into execution. Mr. Class, of the Senate, then took the floor; his Argument was limited to an effort to show that Mr. Yonng was guilty of inconsistency upon the subject ef slavery. Mr. Sickles fallowed Mr. C. Mr 8. advooatsd conciliation; he deprecated the attempt to procure a aepara lion 01 ins sections. Mr Walsh mad* the concluding speech, an eloquent reply to Mr. Slokle* Mr.. Williams than offered the following resolution. Resolved, That the two addresses presented to this cauoue be spread upon the table, and that each member of the eauous, on the call of the roll, announce the address to which he proposes to sign his name. Mf. llCKLIt moved to lav this resolution upon the table; the motion was decided In the negative. Ayes 3<>, nays 3i. Home farther diousslon ooenrred, when the above resolution was withdrawn. The question was then upon the adoption of the address and resolutions reported by the radioal democrats, through their chairman (Mr. Bxekman ) Upon this question, Mr. Walsh moved the previous question. The vote wu then taken with the following lepult Arts?Messrs. Barlow, Beekman, Crook, Deanisbon Lester, Morris, Sedgwick, 8. Smith, Taloott, Townaend Williams, Young, Senators; Atwater, Ueckwith, Bene diet, Bowie, Brown, Chatfleld, Crooker, 8 J.

Chandler, Fenno, Fuller (iallup, Landon, Maxwell, Ilaplee, Sickles, N. B. Month, Watson, of the Assembly?17. The addrers and resolutions of the radicals were declared adopted. The celerity with whioh this result waa attained (after the call for the previous uuestion) waa owing to the ener Ky and efflolency of the temporary chairman,( Mr 'Bowie, of New York) The addretsand resolutions of the radicals having been adopted, there were several motion* to adjourn. Mr. Sickles appealed to the radiaals to allow him to .make a motion respecting the resolution of Mr. Jones, offered at the opening of the caucus, to rescind the resolution adopted at a former e&ucuft. calling a State Convention at Utiea, on the 16th of February nez ; but the radicals refused to listen to the request of Mr. 8 . and at twenty minutes past one, A. M , the caucus adjourned line die. New Emigrant Bill.?The following is a synopsis ol the emigrant bill which passed the Legislature of this State previous to its adjournment See. 1.
