Tbe Erie Railroad, ___.
The Albany Argus, in a flaggy sort ?>f dialogue.
intended to .how that the State Works of New?
Yoik will never pay tlioir cost, giv?s U3 the fol?
lowing :
Vein?1 suppo?e you count upon Ihe Erie Railroad '
Whig.?No, not for revenue. You know well enough
we use that fur ? leciiorieerin??; purposes.
Such, friends of the Erie Railroad ! is ihe waj
your great work is treated by the Leco-Foco Stat?
?nrgan. While the Massachusetts Western Rail?
road in paying over $000,000 per annum, the Al
ban y Argus coolly asserts that the Erie Railroad
would produce no Revenue at all, tyid is ot.ly used"
" for electioneering purposes." If that Road
does not pay $1,000,000 the first year it shall b?
opened throughout, and 7?.?*/ $1,(100,000 within fiv?
years, then all analogous experience is false ant-:
But says ' Dem ' in this same article :
44 There Is one other question 1 wish to a?k. Is not th?
toll paid on the Eiie Canal a tax , and much more onerou
upon the poor and workinir classes than a direct tax upoi
property t 1 have heard much said about tolls, as il Ine*
fell into the Suite Treasury like manna to the I?raelites, hu?
it ulway s appeared to nie that they were produced lij
labor, and paid by a class least able to bear them, and thai
the true policy for us hard-handed tatn who labor, wouh
b*? to have the State K?*t out of debt, and have the tolls oi
flour, pork, beef, and salt reduced."
Let us test the. soundness of this ' tax ' proposi?
tion. Jonathan Holdfast lives in Allcgany County,
and every odd year comes down to seo his fttther ir
Old Connecticut. Before there were any Rail?
roads it took him five days to reach New-York b\
stage, at a cost of $"20. But the Erie Railroad is
built; and now he runs down in twenty-four hoist
direct, or two days' sunshine if he chooses to tak?
it easy?no racking of bones i:or dislocating oi
shoulders?no prying out the singe from quagmirer
?no mud. no dust, no disappointments ; and the
cost is $B to $10 at most. " Why, Holdfast,'
says ...-Comptroller Flagg, meeting him in New
York, " don't you see that the infernal Whig pol?
icy has?c-rc? you eight dollars for your passage? '
44 Why, no," says Jonathan, feeling the balance o
his usual $20 in bis pocket, "it don't exact.'
strike mc in that light."?Just so of the consumer
of " flour, pork, beef and salt.'' The true way tt
secure a teduction of the cost of transpoitaiion i
by enlarging the Canal so that a two-horse boa>
can curry 70 tons where she now cames 25. Thei
a boat can pay more, toll per ton than now, yet
carry at half the present price

out a charge of partisanship against Mr. Colin''-?

?4 It is a ?hnrge up?>n the Democratic party, in the mcuii
o? every Whig demagogue, ami upon the pen of ever.
Whig ?crit'tvler.lhai it seeks to foment hostility between thi
rich und the poor. It is, as every man of sen-- ktiows, u
terly false and unioun.le.i. and yel did Mr. Colby a-snin?
tbe accusation as true and as ;?? m i ally udmilleU."
The error of the Post's statement is here : Mr
Colby spoke against demagogue attempts to arra\
the Poor against the Rich, Labor against Capital,
and showed their folly and wickedne-js ; but ht
did not char g t them upon any party. The Tos
puts the cap on the head of its own party, ano
then cries out?* The Whig libeler ! what ?loes hi
attack us for ? '?Sir., if you are not guilty, you
?re untouched. Ho spoke only of the guilty with?
out naming them.
But is if the charge utterly false and unfout d
ed?" Is the Post's appropriation to its owt
party of Mr. Colby's censure unwurranted ? Lei
any man read the Address and Resolutions is?
mied from Tammany by a " Democratic Mechan

week ago, and see how undoubtingly it assumes an
irreconcilable hostility between the interests ol

Hereupon this Mr. C. F. Cleveland pettifogs t

of more than half u century, the honor ami integrity of t

BCF The Loco-Focos of this City go their dead
on Free Trade and No Protection, and think it i
deplorable thing that our Cotton ship* do not com?
back full of European Manufactures. Now w.
take the opposite view from this ; and when we
hear of packets coming in from Liverpool and
Havre with little freight, wo rejoice that oui
country is giving employment to her own People
instead of others, and that we are paying off" some
?hare of the heavy Foreign Debt which weighs
upon us like a mill-stone. It i? idle to suppose
that all ships sent cut with Cotton and Flour can
have full cargoes back ; one return cargo uses up
r.he exported proceeds of ten, and a good pan
must return empty.
But in Washington County the late Loco-Foco
Convention passed resolutions in favor of a Pro?
tective Taritf; and in Albany the ' Great Meet?

lowing resolution :

.Daniel **?? ?ickiti-.on'i Opinion of Nrvr
York _L.occ-Focoi??rn.
Ir. 1837, when the genuine Loco-Focos were
sorm-what at loggerhead's with the old Sachems in
Tammany, the Ev .ning Post proposed a separa?
tion between the two factions. On th?3 proposi?
tion, Hon. Daniel S. Dickinson, the present
Recency candidat?,, for Lieutenant Governor, made
the feUowiog humorous commentary. We hate to
publish it, for fear it may induce some Whigs to
vote for this comical fellow, who likes real Loco
Focoism just about _.-i welt as any of us. How?
ever, here goes for the Lieut. Governor expectant
depicting those -.?.ho are abaut to vofe for him:
" The Evening Fest recommenfis a ?eparation of
the ' Equal Rights' from the Republican party?
that euch may pursue its own course and 'agree
to differ.'1 h is a timely and judicious sugges?
tion, an event we have long desired to see ; an
ev-.nt had it happened three years since, ire shouia
not have seen the proud Democracy of our Com?
mercial Emporium humbled under the dominion of
modem Whiggery. But there ha> been an Achan
in the catip, and we need not expect to prosper
there, untt! he is cast out. We repeat, we rejoice
ir tbe pro?pect, and when it is fairly accomplish?
ed, in t?e language of the Post, we will not only
proclaim a ' good riddance,' but in the .incerity
of our hearts we will carry out the ligare by add?
ing 'to had rul'b?h.' Since the arrival of that
modern-of Babylon, Fanny Wright, upon our
shores, our party, more especially in the City of
N. Y. has been infested with Patent Democrat*.
impotent in numbers, but noisy and consequential
in pretensions. Their Democracy is Agranianism,
and their liberty lawlessness. With all their holy
horror of monopolies, they have uniformly waimly
supported the most ultra Bank Whigs in the na?
tion, whenever there was a prospect of deteat
lag the Democratic Candidates by so doing. By
attempting to temporize and Conciliate, wo have
given them a consequence to which their positive
insignificance npver entitled them, and the sooner
they turn to their own empty resources the better.
We bave regarde-1 them from the beginning as an
incubus upon the party, and politically redernption
Je.s. Nothing is tolerable with thcrn
unless it comes up to their standard, which isa vis?
ionary and senseless vagary, made up of the odds
and ends of faction, the chief ingredient of which
is conceit and stupidity?a phantom of a distem?
pered brain, without form and void, and upon
which no two of them can agree. Let them wheel
ofT. The order of the procession will probably be
as follows:
I. (Reverend Clergy) JOE SMITH,
4. HT ALEX. M __*>U,
?. HT LE Vi D. SL A MM.
We will ieave it to the Tost to fill up the list of
the procession and 'arrange the mourners who,
we pi edict, will be 'few and far between..''

Scene in the Common Council.?A very inter?

Monday evening. About two month? ago, Assist?
ant Aiderm?n Scoles brought in a Resolution re?
quiring the Counsel of the C ?rporation, under
the direction of the Finance Committee, to prose?
cute defaulters and their ?.ur-ties. The Resolu?
tion passed unanimously. At that lime it was
1 not generally known that ihe Mayor had taken
.?**~>/i'0 ftom the First Marshal, in violation of a
City Ordinance. The Mayor vetoed the Rtrsolo
tion, (as he said.) because Mr. Ward, the First
Marshal, might be prosecuted under it for the
$5,000 which he handed over to the Mayor, in?
stead of paying it inro the City Treasury, as the
Ordinance directs. On Monday evening Mr.
ScoLE. moved that the Resolution pass, notwith?
standing the objections of tbe Mayor. Every Loco'
Foco voted against it. Ail the Whigs present
voted in favor of it: but, owing to t?he absence of
one Whig Member of the Board, the Resolution
could not pas.? by a majority of all the Member?
elected to the Board. We hope Mr. ScoLEs will
renew his Resolution. Here we find the LocO

{ET Some dav^Snhc?- the Herald announced that
the Mormo^**^^:1?" cf Gen. Bennett was out, and
commented freely upon its obscenity, ?fcc. The
be-jt answer to all this stufF is the simple statement
which we have in a letter from the publisher, that
the book has not yet been published, anil?at the
time the Herald's article was ?.?-ritten?not a print?
ed page of it bail been out of the othec. Ihe
charge of licentiousness, ?fee., preferred against the
book, is said to be utterly unfounded. This abuse
may be explained by the fact that Bennett of the
Herald applied to Bennett of Nauvoo for the job
of printing his book. The offer was rejected; and
since that time fien. B. and his forthcoming bonk
have been steadily abused. As every body know?,
it. would be strange if tbe Herald had taken any
other course.
DCF We notice that all over the Country a class

prices f??r them, and what aggravates tlie abuse,
the Whig party will be charged with the expendi?
ture made by and upon its bitterest enemies. Is
not this outrageous ?
?X__P The authorship of the urticle on American
Newspaper Literature in the last Foreign Quar?
terly is a subject of general speculation in literary
circles. Those attacked in itaie inclined to claim
the honor of being reviewed by Mr Dickens ; but.
the best judges incline to the belief that this gen?
tleman had very little if any thing to do with it.
The Courier thinks he wrote it, and relies with
great confidence on the alledged fact that " Dr.
McKenzie, the Liverpool correspondent of ihe
Union, says he is recognized as the author in
England." We have seen nothing of the kind in
any of his lettres. The only passage in which Boz
is alluded to in connection with the article is this :
"Apropos ol Boz. There is an article in the
Foreign Quarterly (now edited by Chapman ?c
Hall, his publishers) on the Newspaper Literature
of America." Slight ground this fot* the Courier's
statement. The American thinks the article was
written in this city, or at least on this side of the
water. The weight of opinion among the best in?
formed in the literary circles here seeing to be
against his bein/r the author.

Vice Chancellor's Court.?Before Vic
Chancellor ?McCoun.
Decisions.?Valentine Molt vs. James Walkley?D
Molt held a mortgage on properly belonging to defendar
Mr. Nathaniel Smith was also a judgement creditor i
Walkley's, aud bought the equity of redemption of the pn
perty at a Sheriff's sale. The mortgage was foreclose
and a sale of the property took place at the Merchants' ?
change, when Dr. Mott wasdrclared to be purchaser, pf
ing but$l,S50 for what's said to be worth $6,000, audwhic
brings a yearly rent of $1,000. Mr. Smith now comes ii
petitioning lhat ihe ?ale may he re-opened, grouuding h
claim on the following cirrurmtance?: He -(tended lb
sale at the Exchange, accompanied by a friend. (Mr. Mi
dad Platt,) the latter being provided with funds to meet an
requirements Me hid $3,005 for the properly, when Mr. _
A. Bancker (a CO defendant) came lo him and asked will
he was biddings- high for; ?aid he would ruin tbe old mai
(meaning Mr. Walkley,) and called him aside; when Mi
Smith told Bancker thai nil he wanted was to secure hi
debt-, and it was concluded between them thai he (_m"nil
should bid no higher; that -is debt would be settled with!
fifteen days, when Walkley should have the advantage c
his hid. Tbe terms of sale had been 10 per cent, ?iown, ht
Mr. Bancker told Smith that no money would be require!
and the latter allowed ?Mr. Platt to go away. Ths propert
was then struck off to Mr. Smith for the -53,005. when th'
Masterin Chancery (John A. Sidell, JKsq.) demanded tin
10 per cenL Mr. Smith stated the manner in which he wa
situated, and ottered to give a check l'?r die amount; bu
the Master would nol receive any thing bol the caub, am
instantly ordere?! the property lo be put up anew, refusin*
Mr. Smith permission again to bid. A son of Dr. Moll wa?
in attendance, and the property was struck off to Dr. Mot!
for $1.300, as already slated.
Th?* Vice Chancellor, in giving his opinion, alluded ic
the vasi disparity in ihe valu, of the property and the pi ice
for which it was siltl. The sale of property, he said, at *i
chancery sale i? no bar lu iis validity; and a mortgagee ha?
an equal li^ht with othe s to buy and obtain tille,provided
there are no circumstances attending the sale which permit
a petition for re-optning beiiif?; entertained by ihe C'.urt.
The Vice Chancellor, then alluded? cases in point, particu?
larly in 20th Wendell. He said lhat where property passed
lo third hand-, the policy oi the Court would be not to dis
lurb a sale unie? fraud were shown. In Ihe prtsent case,
however, where the property was purchased by the mort?
gagee, and the parties interested could show lhat a larg?r
price might have been obtained, justice to all parties author
ized thai the sale should be reopened.
Ordered, thai the ?ale lo Mr. _mit- for $3,005 should be
consuir.niaied, thus enabling Dr. Mott and the other credit?
ors io obtain whal was ?Jae to tkewi. [The property is at
ihe corner of Houston-street and Avenue A, and include
several good buildings.]
