0*r readers will have remarked tbe resolatioi
submitted to the Assembly by Mr D E Sicklei
of this City inetructing the Committee on Excise
j?-e to bring in a bill repealing the present Eacisi
Law. Aa it is notorious that tha provisions of tlia
law do not extend to and have do effect (other thai
a incraJ influence) in our City, it is a little remark
?hi* that our distinguished representative boouIi

Oar City Coarta.
The bill submitted to the Assembly by Mr
Vf right of Sullivan providing for the organisation o
the Cl*nl Coarta of onr City containa, we believe
4he provisions sabstsntially which are approved bj
th* great mass of those who desire that Judicia
aad Lag?. Reform shall extend to oar City ss ??.
?? the reet of the State. By this bill, ail oar pre
sent ?Bomfelous and cambrons machinery of Circuit
Popenor, Comet?n Pleas, Chancery and Mannt
Coarta are to be sapplantad by a single Court 01
r*fafeS Judge?, ?l??ted by the Peopl? for four ysars,
paid fat.900 each but no lees,; and formed into
? uob and so many tribunals aa may be necessary
for l?? hearing and dispatch of all business be
taisa that of Ward Justices' Coarta and that of ths
Mat* Court of Appeals. By Mr Wright's bill,
substantially devised and framed by the friends I.'
Jadicial Reform in our City,; each elector of our
O??*/ is entitled to vote lor stx Judge? only, while
th? ?stfet having moat votes are to be chosen?a
rood idea, bat we have doubts of the feasibility of
epplyisg it to a part of tha State while oaknown
W? do hope the L?gislature will m?h? bute to
??ass whatever bills are necessary with regard to
ths Judicial Districts sad Elections, to that tbe
Patrpla may begin to think of candidates and de
?>*? on th? relativ? m?rite of thos? suggested ?
Ivery btror'a dsliy increases th? danger of seler
t*OB8 by cabal or at hap hasard.
Th? < olle?a Question.
It seemt to as that the advocates of the bill be
for? lb? Alterably proposing farther grants from
th? Stet? funds devoted to Education in aid of cer
tain ?f oar Colleges do not fully understand or j o
aot fairly consular tbe arguments of their oppo?
nent? To talk of tb? utility, necessity, Ate. of
Colleg?? may be very woll in its way ; but is it in
point 7 Theological Seminaries ara also desirable,
and Astronomical Observatories, and gigantic
Telescopes . yet the State does not propose to en?
dow th? first, erect the second, nor p?rchese ths
third The question in point appears to us to be
a? follows : Hort) are One Million Dollars, we will
say, to be ??pended by tb? tt ate in aid of Popular
Ed no? den, and nearly One Million children in the
State to be edooated. The Legislature represents
the parants of these children. Now there is a pro
position te take a part of this common fund and ex
p?ad it in giving a special and superior education
to On* Thousand or so of tha children at various
rat?? of t?n to fifty dollars per head. Have the
majority aver understanding^ consented to any
sooh appropriation ? Would they probably do so
if tha question were directly submitted to them I
Who for one moment believes tl.ey would ?
Bat again Suppose a certain portion of the State
Educational Funds are to be set apart to the sup
port of Colleg?? : On what principle u (hat portion
to be dulrtbuftd ? Shall it be divided pro rata, ac
wording to the number of pupils undergoing educa
tioa in aach f Shall it be distributed ao much to
every pupil gratuttotnly educated f Shall the fact
that a College has been well endowed by privato
msnifioenee. or ii amply supported by the number ol
iu pupils, or has already received large Bums from
the Bute?either or all of these dsbar it from fa?
that bounty ? Shall the fact that it is poor. weak.
aad baa few papila, entitla it to a doable portiou ?
Shall it b* understood that the present Colleges
ce-ry are to be aided T or shall those which may
hereafter be set up be warmed into activity by
Sut? Patronage .' In short, shall the character
and measure of State aid to Colleges rest on any
principle at all, or depend entirely on unscrupulnui
log rolling and dexterous boring ? Why have tu t
the People a right to kuow I

The nieruoratiua of the Uuarterroaiter Genera
states the measures adopted by him to obtain i
supply of boat?.
The next letter is from (ion. Taylor at Matamo
ros, June Kth. in which he says
No steamboats have been sent out Irons New Orleani
for the navigation of tho Rio Orande, aad In the abaenci
of all Information on that point or respecting the view
of the Government, I sm altogether In tha dark a? to ou
future up? ration?. I must think that orders b?v? beei
given by laperior authority to ?uipend the forwardlm
of meani et tramporution from If ew-Orleaui. I canno
otherwise account for the eatraorolnary delay ihowi
by the Quartermaiter'i Department tn thstctty. Evsi
tbo mails, oontatniog probably important dlipatches fron
the Government, ?re not expedited.
AportiouoftheVnlantoeri.be ?ay?, have -beer

Exposed as they are In this climate to dlaessas o
the camp, and withont any proapect, to ftr ai I rai
see. of being utelully employed, I matt recommend
thtt they be allowed to return to their homei."
We have next a letter to the Secretary of Wai
from John Sanders, Captain of Engineers, who wai
sent to New Orleans by Gen. Taylor to procure
traniporti- Gen. Taylor had ordered him to pro.
care four steamers of light draft, and the Captain
aaks the authority of the Department to doable the
number. Only two, he aay?, could be had at New
Urlaatii. For the reit he would have to go to Lou?
isville and Cincinnati
To this the Quart.rmester Genora! replies, grant
ing him the authority asked ; and ("apt. Sanders
tobiequently reports 'Pittsburgh, July .,; that he
lia? completed his purchases of the necessary boats.
In answer to thii tbe C_aartemiatter General (July
. j itiyi i
I am disposed to suitaln Gen. Tsylor to the utmoit :
aod as far as the mean? tbe ? m rglei. and tbe credit ot
toe Department shall ?noble me. he may rely on ?11 that
I can accomplit?, for him. I ?uitained him tot more
than two raontb? by u?ing ippr-priatloni for the ?er
4 ice ol hii array which tho President would have been
?inpeschrd for using. It was contrary to law to divert
tbeoi from tbe objecta to which Congren Intended they
should besppiled . but I considered that tbe situation of
the army cauied an overruling necesiity which juitlfled
toe course which 1 adopted 1 shall never lurget how
talthtully and ably Gen. Taylor ?uslalned me In Florida
This passage wa? firit brought to the notice ol
the Decretar?,- of War while preparing the dorn
monts to answer tho resolution of the Honie of
Representatives. Gen Jeiup. being, absent, wai
written to for an explanation. It wai feared thtt
the passage might bo " used to mi tain a grave
charge agaimt the Department." The .aplana
tion of (it".i Jetup ii at followt ;
The clrcmmitaucee to which I alluded in my letter
lo l'spt Banden are tbeie Tbe appropriation! for tbe
active ?ervlee bad mostly been exbuuited. '1 hpre were
large balances ol other appropriations subject to my
control. Congress was in isaslon, ?nd the President
could not mike a transfer. Without consulting you I
applied large amounts of thoie h?l?nee? to the ac Ive
?ervlee. Not having aeci-M tu lie records of my off ?-,
I cannot s?y wh?t ?mounts they were, or lo what offl
cere remitted . but Lieut OoL Hunt received here one
I. ndr. d and five thousand dollars of those balances,
and applied the whole to the support of Gin. Taylor'?
General Taylor had compla-ned of the yaarierni .??
t.-r's Department I had received the impression thai
ha believed he was not cordially supported by the offl
cera of tbe Department in ?erlting to his confidential
agent 1 wished to show blm that I was ready to ?upporl
him. not only by performing all my ordinary duties, bul
by assuming any responsibility tbe exigencies of the ser
vice might require.
When I remarked to ('apt. Sander? that you or th?
I'liaiUi'i.t could be impeached for acting ai [had acted
I etludid merely to the illegality of applying appropria
tii'Oi to object? different Irom those tor which they bad
been made by ("?innren, sud to the wsntol legal author!
ty In either to unction what 1 had done.
I did not nonsuit you on the subject of using those
balanoei, bacsuie you could not have given me any leca
authority to use them I considered the necessity of to?
esse, as it edited, lufflcient for my own juitiflcatlon
should my conduct In the nutter ever be questioned I
Intended no reflection t-ltber upon you or the Preildent
nor did it occur to me thet my remark! could be ic
understood by sny one.
Next we have a letter from Gen Taylor to the
Adjutant General, dated at Matamoros. July -.*"_. re
