of the Constitution and its august Tribunal were
new to turn about and say. 1 We did wrong in up?
holding these corropt and incompetent Judges.' he
would give an immense and unjust advantage io the
Detractive* in all their future undertakings.
The Whig party, in the course of what was known
as the Bank contest, frankly and honestly disclaim
ed any special devotion to ihe then existing Hank of
the United States, much less to those who happened
to be its manager?. They said to those in power,
' If you destroy the good we have, you ought to
' give as something ?.s good in its place I Sol about
' it! Don't rest satisfied with telling us (as Jackson
' did ia his Veto Message) that you could submit the
? plan of a betler institution liian that you have de
' siroyed, but do it. You have broken down a good
' currency on pretence of making a better : Hurry it
' up ! When you commenced your experiments, tt
? man could readily obtain currency in any State
' wiiich woald count out so many pur dollars in any
'other: It is otherwise now : Restore us what you
' have taken away, or its fair equivalent!'?Such was
the spirit, such the language, such the fair demands,
of the Whigs throughout the Union. And we assort
with absolute confidence that, so far from being
really " bound," save by the assertions of lying Loco
Foco demagogues, to ?? u rollen und loathsome
Bank of the V. Slates," ihe Whigs would at any
time throughout the Rank contest have readily, joy
fully closed wiih any proffer by their opponents of
a compromise by which the old Hank should be con
signed to oblivion, provided the public benefits
hilherto obtained through the operations of the Bank
should at the same time be secured through any
other institution or arrangement- Not the Hank
but tho Constitution and a uniform and beneficent
National currency, wero the great and worthy objects
for which the Whigs struggled, and if they did not
directly achieve success, they none the loss deserv?
?So much for the Pasi: now a word for the Fu?
ture. Speaking for ourselves only, and ready to
heed with deference that Public Opinion which is
founded on enlightened Patriotism and not od dem
agogue clamor, we say that we are content with
the existiug stale of things regarding tho Currency
?not as the best possible but as ijuite unlikely lo bo
improved through any effort the Whigs are ready
to make. We are willing, therefore, to stand where
wcare; though we regard the actual Financial sys?
tem or no-system as based on no sound principle,
mi enlarged aud statesman-like view of the National
wants and interests, and likely to fall into ruins at
the first rumbling of that Commercial Convulsion
which we behove cannot bo far distant. Uui so long
as tbo Whigs have no power to bettor this and can
not bo bold responsible for it, wo are willing to let it
alone. But if our opponents shall see tit to disturb
and overthrow it, We arc prepared to meet any issue
they may make decidedly ami manfully. li no al?
ternative shall bo afforded us but a Hard Money
Sub-Treasury or a National Bank, wo stand for the
latter. Wc believe a Bank may be so framed as to
obviate all valid Constitutional and other objections,
and guard against abusos so far us any tliinu of hu?
man origin can be guarded. We believe mat last
Bunk bill vetoed by Tyler ifi the main a good
one, ami that the Country would have been Ivetter
for its pastswgonow. and infinitely better prepared, to
meet the convulsions which arc appnoacfamg. Fail?
ing this, wc were fa favor of the Exchequer plan,
carefully guarded, and would now vastly prefer it to
any kind of a Sub-Treasury. But the wonl ? Bank'
has for us no terrors, and wo will not consent to see
it made annrse's bug-bear to frighten children. The
enemies of the Whig party cannot honestly make it
so, nor even dishonestly, unless aided by unreason?
ing antipathies or groundless panics among our
r?w?Yorl? und Erle Rnilrond.

j Pew of tho new Hoard have any experience in
! the management of public works . yet nrc they call?
ed on, at the very outset, to perform Ibc most dit'i
: cull duties which w ill devolve on them during their
Lentire career; in fact, to make decisions on which
the prosperity, ii not indeed the very completion of
' the rortd depend* It. however, their acquaintance
with the managetneul of Railroads be slight, it is
, consoling to lv.tr in mind that they arc totally un
practiced in the mismanagement of such under?
takings -a regular business with only t'?o many.
Indeed, wo may .safely aver that tiot a few regard
nil Railroads a* cot up for the purpose of placing
the moans of honest, industrious and confiding Stock?
holders at tho mercy of unprincipled speculators
and unknown adventurers. The present Hoard cer?
tain! v possess the public confidence in advance to a
remarkable extent, when it is considered that they
i nearly all?not excepting the President?appear
I now for the first time in public life, for such it may
! well bo considered. Heartily approving of the hon?
est pride with which they must view the happy rc
suits of their lirsl efforts, wc must yet remind thorn
1 that the project was not new. was well understood
; and so highly appreciated that tbe public was ready
I to embark in it as soon us a direction of men of bu
sincss of approved character should be placed at its
head. They have yet to establish their characters
:is directors . a few months will show whether they
have the knowledge, energy and grasp of mind
which can alone sustain tlicin in carrying through
the X. V. and Erie Railroad to a speedy and happy
Experience in the United States, generally, and
; on the New York and Eric Kail Road in particular,
has shown the lamentable result of taking the held
before the plan of the Company has been well set
tied. YVc hope the Directors will make themsoKcs
masters of this great point, on which the success of
the project hangs, it-fore entering on the work of
construction. This may require sonic little time,
but lime cannot be better occupied; indeed, this
course will, ultimately, more than any other, con?
duce to the early as well as to the economical open?
ing of the road. There arc two grand departments,
?the Financial and the Engineering,?the former
is directly and exclusively managed by the Hoard,
which also exercises a general supervision over the
latter They must work harmoniously together, or
failure is the inevitable result. No matter what the
ability of the Directors, or how grcal their vigi
. lance, they must substantially rely on their Engi?
neer for information, on which they must frequently
base not only their general plans but the very de?
tails of their financial operations. Hut, independ?
ently of this, the success of a Railroad at this time
, requires on the pun of its manager* h thorough
i knowledge of the principles of location, the various
j modes of construction, the machinery best adapted
' to the road in question, &C. Hence the Stockhold?
ers arc to some extent at the mercy of the Engi.
t nccr. on whose judgment and character they arc
j obliged to depend in matters vitally affecting the in?
terests of the road.
The general route of the New York and Eric Rail
mad being pretty well determined?the commission
t;> ilru riniii-- ih<- Delaware or Sullivan location he
im: a subordinate niatter?the Directors will the
sooner be able to break ground on the location to
tho westward. Rut supposing Pennsylvania fa?
vorable, which wc cannQt doubt, is the Hoard pre- i
pared to rely on the plans of its predecessors?
Will not the public expect a full statement of the
actual condition of affairs, from the observation of
tho pro.-cnt Hoard, aided, if required, by Engineers
i whose experience has not been acquired on the
' New-York and Erie Railroad?a Railroad not yet
in existence?and who are nol unaccustomed to
draw like professional papers? After the publica?
tion of the three pamphlets, a short time since, in
j which every thing is lauded in no measured terms,
not excepting the causeway at Picrmont, nnd in
; which it is generally asserted that work has been
done for 10f? percent, less on the.Ycw-Yorkaud Erie
j Railroad than on some other underlakings.it would
betray folly ami imbecility in the Board to stake
' their own reputation and the immense sums confi?
ded to them on the chanee of such statements pro
: ving entirely correct.
It will he readily gleaned from the above that we
regard tho appointment of the Chief Engineer as
of the last importance to the success of the project,
us well as affording a pretty good indication of the
capacity of the Directors to fill their responsible and
1 most honorable situations creditably to themselves
! and advantageously to the stockholders. We sin
I ccrely hope that, in making this appointment, they
i will keep clear of nil visionary and stock-jobbing
Engineers; that they will avoid those whose past
career is marked by ruinous mistakes and disap?
pointment to unfortunate stockholders.
These remarks arc not intended to have any pcr
! soual application. Of the abilities and character of
j any one who has hitherto tilled thcoflice, we express
j no opinion, and we have no prepossession against 1
any one. Wc only urge what every one must per- !
ccivc and admit, that the practical construction of
the Koad. as well as its financial direction, must be
in the hands of men not only qualified but knoten to
be qualified for the responsible duties devolved on
them?men who possess, because they have de?
served, an eminent measure of the public confidence.

YxF The Union professes to contradict, with entire
poaitivencss, the statement of Mr. McL one's disap?
pointment with regard to the Oregon negotiation,
Ac. and his desire to abandon the Mission. It does
no such thing, however. It was perfectly understood,
and stated by us at the outset, that the formal nego?
tiations respecting Oregon were to be continued at
Washington, but it was added that Mr. McLane un?
derstood that he was to settle informally the basis of
a settlement, in free conferences with Lord Aberdeen.
Wo believe this yet?at any rate, the 1 tiioti does
i not contradict it. Neither does it contradict our
' statement that Mr. McLane is (or has been) im?

been sent him at an earlier day. and that he is very

The Convention ' Democracy.'
The (Hobe. Slaiiun's new paper, on behaif of the
'Younc Democracy' of onr City propounds ihe fbl
lowing Amend men in to be made to the Constitution
.->: oar >tnte by the Convention next Summer:
I. Prohibit the State from engaging in construct?
ing, or loaninc its rredit to construct, any R
Railroad or Canal, whether with or without the
express assent of the People
Employ the Canal Tolls to pay off the State
Debt, then (twenty years bjence) to complete (in
twenty year* more) tlte Erie Enlargement and
other unfinished Canals. then reduce the Toils so
that ihey shall barely suffice to keep the Canal* in
order and defray the expenses of the State:
3. Repeal that clause of the Constitution w hich
allows Negroes, under certain circumstances, to
?As this last proposition is utterly at war with
all essential Democracy, and palpably contradicts all
I the doctrines and teachings of 'the party' with re
i ference to the Dorr business, wc give the Globe s
"Tr.is amendment is in affirmance of tho principle that
' the question who shall exercise the civil power in a
Suite, by voting, is not a question of rijjhl, but of rjped:
enry and poliru. The existing Constitution, in effect,
i declares that it is impolitic and inexpedient to allow
females, minors, aliens, persons convicted of infamous
i crimes, und negroes without property, to vote. Negroes
ought not to he permitted to participate in the govern?
ment of this country, because their phyiicn! ha'n'u ami
mental debasement have manted them as unfit associates
of the race of men to whom Providence has committed
the government of this country. This ie exclusively, as
i we have already seen, a question of poliry end expediency,
and not of right."
Here is some very sound but glaringly un-Dcmo
. cratic doctrine with regard to the Right of Suffrage,
'. which the Globe man was vociferously prominent in
' infringing in regard to the Rhode-Island contro?
versy. Bat then the doctrine that some men ought
I not to vote because they arc not fii attoeiaia for
other men we can never agree to. If nine-tenths of
[ oar citizens were to decide that Mr. Slamm. for in.
I stance, was a man they could not associate with, we
j should still consider his right to vote unimpaired
I The Riuhi of Suffrage depends, or should depend,
! on the fitness of the person to exercise it; but So
I cial intercourse is a matter of taste altogether.

No. XXVI...The Snllon..
There arc perpetually from three to five thousand
Sailors of all descriptions iu the port oi New N ork.
The individuals . emposing this ' Boating population'
are incessantly changing, as ships arrive and depart,
or as the money of the Sailors themselves runs ont
through the scuppers or down their throat*. Tho
general characteristic': of the Sailor, however, arc so
strongly marked, and so similar in the different indl
viduala of the same class, that it is practicable to get
a very correct idea of the whole by examining any
given portion of the mass.
The character of the Sailor has been so freely ex?
patiated upon by novelists that little is to l>e said in re
I spect to him that can ha new. He is reckless of money
because be lives so much of hi* time out of the world
"f trade and, speculation that be knows nothing of
the inconveniences or necessities of money; and, the
circulating medium' with him is never permitted
lone to forego it* proper destiny?arculation. It is
not so mach from a spirit of extravagance or waste
j fulness that the Sailor spends his money so freely, as
j it is that he has never been taught to know its value.
The Sailor i* frank, generous, sympathetic, brave,
i but he is also sullen and dogged under rebuke and
I submits to discipline not very gracefully. To effect
1 a total demolition of independence and individual
I will a regular apprenticeship in the Navy is neces
i sarv. Here the Sailor becomes as mere a machine
I as King could wish. In the merchant service, how
! ever, the Sailor is onite a different person. He hss
i his rights and pretty generally is well acquainted
! with them. He has a Court made almost on pur
j pose to accommodate him and plenty of lawyers and
? ? land-sharks.' who are always ready lo stand by
J poor .lack as lone as he has a shot iu the locker.
; The wages of Sailors in the regular merchant scr
i vice has not greatly varied for many years past, a!
though the demand and the proportion between it
' and the unemployed liuctuate very much. The
? present wages of Sailors is SI " per month. Some"
times it goes down as low as 812, and then they
generally have a strike and bring it up again,
j The life the of Sailor on shore is too often a regular
j succession of extortions and impositions practised
, upon him by every one with whom he comes in
I contact. At t'*e moment of his arrival?before his
fool touches the wharf?he is beset by the landlords
! of the Sailor Boarding-Houses and dragged ofT to
: one of these uncomfortable, miserable dens, where a
man is glad to set drunk to drown the sense of the
utter desolation which reigns around.. Here he lies
? anil drinks, debauches, and carouses until his pay is
, ail exhausted, to the very last cent?and then he :s
permitted to ship : or, if there is no demand, he is
i remorselessly cut adrift! His money is all gone?
j his clothes are worn oat, his spirit broken, his
stomach and brain half consumed with the fires of
poisonous brandy anil other hellish mixtures?and
be is ripe and ready for anything. When he ships
! the landlord kindly consents to become his security
for the bounty, and in return makes him promise
and .lack is a faithful keeper of promises) to come
back to his house to spend his money when he re?
turns. The extent to which these practices have
been and are carried, at the expense of the Sailor,
is truly deplorable. He is not only robbed but poi
-oned?his faculties ennervatcd, his judgment con?
fused ami bis whole being paralyzed . and so com?
pletely are these thintrs enforced upon him by re
i pealed experiments, that he almost naturally looks
j upon the shore as a kind of general bolyday-placc,
' where one sees a great deal of' fun,' gets his pock
et picked. iV.c. A-e.
Since the establishment of the ' Sailors' Home.'
however, many of these abuses have become par?
tially corrected. So far as we have l>ecn en?
abled to learn, theaflairs of thai Institution are well
and honestly managed for the benefit of the Sailor.
There arc generally about three hundred inmates in
! this place, and ibey are uniformly dealt with, we
have every reason to believe, in tin most honorable
manner. There is no liquor permitted about the
establishment . and the business of shipping the
men is carried on upon very upright and inflexible
principles. The worst thing arising from the insii
tntion of the 1 Sailor's Home' is that all the loafers
and vagabonds, who can no longer remain in the
ordinary private Uuarding-Houscs, come to the
? Home,' as a last resort, whence they are engaged
by Notaries who get sometimes badly bitten and
this makes the Merchants rail at tho ' Sailors Home
for keeping such miserable sailors.
The character of the Sailors for temperance is
gradually but surely improving. The 'Sailors'
Home' has done a great deal in this respect, and the
' Bethel' a great deal more. Indeed, the latter is
laboring most successfully to inform and elevate the
mind of the Sailor and bring him to v iew himself,
his duties and responsibilities in airaerand stronger
light The moment be can free himself from the
thraldom of grog and tne low and infamous associa?
tions to which he is proverbially exposed, his whole
mind and character will begin rapidly to show of
what ihey are capable.
Anti-Renters if tiik Far West.?A move?
ment very similar to that which has kept this State for
so long a time in confusion imd alarm, has just been agi?
tated by sundry discontented persons in Greene Co.
Wisconsin Territory, which has called forth much atten?
tion from the public journals published iu that neighbor?
hood. The bone of contention is the Claim Law enact?
ed by Congreee some years since with regard to certain
unappropriated lands in the farther West, and which
does not seem to give very general satisfaction to those
for whose benefit it was enacted. We have room tor a
brief extract from the Milwaukie Gazette :
The Greene County Claim Society.?L'ndtr this
name a Society has been oraani/ed in Greene County in
this Territory, tho object ol which seems to he to enforce.

thirty days after riling the clnim with the Society, and
ten dollars' worth in each succeedinc year. We co under
the whole tenor of the constitution ot the Society to be I
at war with that true spirit of law and order which I
should characterize the citizens of a free .Republic. As !
a specimen, we give two or the articles :
Art'. 12th. The members of this society shall refrain
from holding any intercourse of a friendly nature with
auy one who shall enter anothers' claim, (without such
claimant's consent) or in any manner neighbor with him

from buying of or selline to him. or in any way or 1
manner assist him. for hire or charity, except in case of i
sickness in his family.
Art. 13th. Any person who shall enter, or may have
entered, any valid claim from a member of this society, I
will be required to settle the matter to the satisfaction of
the Committee of Justice.

question, dependant on future action of the National Le

Caution-Important to Bankers'
t~r= Probably Bankers are aware that H. C. Jones, of
Newark, N. J. wn not long since employed as Agent for
the sale of our Rank Locks, and we wou. J here state,
that while active in that capacity, he obtained commend?
atory certificates, from Banks be furnished, for our Lock,
and took the liberty of having them given in his ow n
name, and our Lock called Jones's Lock, consequently our
Lock has been so eontouuded with his. that it is in many ,
places known only as Jones's Lock. Mr. Jones has re?
cently obtained (.in his own name) from the Cashier ol
the Phenix ISauk of this city, n certificate for one of our
Lock* which he sold them in 1SI1. which re-ids as fob j
lows: Piienix Bank Oct.4th, 1S45.
" I certify that to the year ts-i l I purchased of H. C.
Jones, of Newark, one "of his Hank Locks, which has j
been in constant use ami has given entire satisfaction. I
have to much confidence in the Locks constructed by |
Mr. Jones, thut I have this day purchased another of
them to put upon the new Hanking House, and think it
' a perfect security against burglars or picklock*.

The above ccrt_catc,purportlng to have been obtained
[ for Mr. Jones's Leek, was in fact given for a Lock manu- ,
factored by us und sold to the Phenix Hank by 11. C. 1
What confidence can be placed in the statements of n
man that will resort to such a miserable alternative to
sell his Locks, wc leave (without comment) tor the
public to decide. We would merely state, however,
[ that we recently opened with a duplicate key at the P he
J nix Bank one of Jones's two hundred and fifty dollar
Locks, twice in less than ten minutes, it being locked on |
a differ nt combination by the Cashier each time?thus I
showing conclusively in this, .is in every other instance, .
I that it cannot la- secure against the maker. It was opened
in the presence of the Cashier, and also

(>ur Lfark is now at the Phenix Hank. Mr. Jones can
have, in attempting to open it, ail the privileges wc had
to open his.
tine object in this communication is to state that we
opened Jones's L.a-k at the I'henix Bank on Tuesday
last, and with the privileges of the maker, wc hold our?
selves in readiness to do it again, without putting the
Lock out of order. Another object is to caution Hank
ers against placing any confidence in the above certifi?
cate, or any other spuiiou? certificates obtained in the
same deceptive mam cr. should the-.- be introduced by
Mr. Jones to effect the sale of his Lock beresftei
To prevent farther devices ol this kind, wo now pub
licly call upon Mr. ..'ones lor the certificate he obtained
for our Lock from the Phenix Hank, and also all other
certificates given lor our Lock now In his possession, ami
I if the demand is not promptly Complied with, we must
[ and shall, in self-defence, give Bankers and the public a
more full exposition of this matter hereafter, and at the
same time call their attention toother artitice and decep
tion Mr. Jones resorted to while employed by us as
Agent for our Hank Lock. We are perfectly willing that
Mr. Jones should (.as usual) set his mark hn.ii. but he
must no longer stand on our shoulders to reach it. Kor

Cr?* To the Public.?We were attracted to H. C
Jones's scurrilous article In The Tribune of Saturday, In ;
answer to the demand we made for certain certificates,
and referring to the opening of his Lock at the Phoenix
Bank on Tuesduy last, In which he strives to cover the
Imperfections of his Lock by stadng that it wss opened in
consequence of our being aware that the Tumbiers of his
Lock are numbered, and states that any fool or knave
could open it wiih that knowledge. That any fool or1
knave can readily open his Lock, we shad not for a mo- j
ciectdeoy; but we do deny that a Lock can in any sense
be secure against the maker, If, by examining the -ame. it
can be opened as It was by us at the Pbcenix Bank, twice in
less than ten minutes?as all must readily see. at a ? Ingle
glance, that the maker can, at ail rimes, have the pri . liege ? f
examining his own Lock
After we had successfully opened Mr. Jones's Lock at the '
Phoenix Bank, bs took it home to New ark, and In hi* com
nrnidcatiOB in The Tribune of Saturday, stares rf.at it is now 1
at Mr. Latkrap't store, \ealed up, ready for us to open arfsin.
We w ould suggest the propriety of hi* sealing all his
Locks, as an examination of them by an/ mechanic of no ,
more than ord.nary genius is death, to tv l ock, as lie can, by
so doing, avail himself of some of the advantages of
the maker, and open it at any time. We would here
state, that we can Introduce secrets into one of our ordi?
nary ten-dollar Locks, piece the same on a safe, anied up,
and no one but the maker can succeed in opening it until
these secrets are discovered ; wluie the maker, having full
knowleiV?. what and where they were, might be enabled lo
open it at any lime. Thus Mr. Joues may have managed
with ihe Lock now at Mr. Ijalhrop't store ; consequently we
shall decline any operations on it until we hrst bavr the '
privilege of examining the same, and also all the privileges

how it Is possible lo test Uie security of a Lock, and not be
allowed the maker's privileges. These are the privileges
we are deposed to grant Mr. Jote* in any attempts he may
make to open our Lock now at the Phoenix Bank, and they <
are all we ask from him to open his. Will ihey be

that Mr. Jones, to bis last communication io the'public vir
luaily acknowledges that we, in opening his Lock ai the

Cy The notice In yesterday's paper, inserted by the
Agent of Mr. Dalley, appears, from Information received by
us, to have been Incorrect?as we have seen the l.der of
the Court dissolving the Injunction, and we have no doubt,
nor can we hear but what the Injunction, so far as com

To the Editor of The Tribune:

I do not blame a few wealthy men who have bought
out the original owner* of thu ?to?'ic. and are likely to
realize hundreds of thousands of dollars by the specula?
tion, should they succeed, for exerting, by their aUor.

Grand st. and Peck-slip Ferries, and prevent any im?

public interests as closely attended to as these men at?

only pay tor ha t a year in advance at once, they charge
you So per cent extra, or $lSayear. It you wish to

nopoly, for once. Perhaps the Common Council would
act wisely in keeping the Company on trial tor :i winter
or two?and if I should have to go round about occa?
sionally, to other feines, as I had to do last winter,
through their neglect. I will travel the more cheerfully
from knowing that the privation will not last seven yesrt
I do not intend to blame tho gentlemen of the Com?
mon Council for their recent vile. The Interested man?
agen ol the ferry company and their hired lawyers made
out a plausible case?neither do I argue against monopo?

loaded with 1,000 millions of dollars ot debt, is cheapen,
nig her portages ami buying otl the monopolists who
built the toil lonlges on the Thames, and all this tn beuc?
ht her commerce ami manufactures, why should we
heedlessly tie down the action ol the city for I I years

or nine privileged capitalists, and give tbera a control
that may prove very injurious, and cannot prove bene?
