NEW YORK^ HERALD.
New X ark, Tuesday, November lb. IN45? Korelfn Newi. The Britannia is now in her fourteenth day. Her news will be particularly interesting. t'lty Reform? A Revolution Ahead. A variety of indications, presenting themselyes on all hands, force upon us the conviction that a move ment is about to commence in this city which will produce consequences of the most important cha racter, and intimately affecting the prosperity of the metropolis and the interests of its inhabitants. We are inclined to think that a germ of revolution is now in the ground, that will break out in a short me in a wholsome agitation of the all-important subject of city reform, that will terminate in practi cal results of the highest interest and value, next spring. A last, and let us hope successful effort is about to be begun for the attainment of that for l'Us community has been vainly struggling for There is not in the whole world, a city which possesses more abundantly the means, both natural and artificial, of attaining the blessings of good go vernment, than does this great metropolis of the nifed Stales. And yet, in consequence of the cor rupts of political parties-the want of united and common sense effort on the part of the intelligent 2r rrCmZenS Wh? really de8're salutary and efficient government-probably no city in the world has been so badly managed by the municipal authorities. This has been long acknowledged and deplored by the intelligent portion of the communi ty, and repealed efforts have been made to effect "change for the better. But the struggle fective Th k- bee" ,H,Werle8H and mef ective. I he whig party has been tried and ?""d '? ,b" Th. " hav. i"o ned, and found to be still worse ; and now again he loeofocos have been tried, and they are found o be worst of all. Never was the city of New York so badly governed as now. Look at the streets ney are more an abomination than ever?filthy wretchedly paved, disgraceful to any civilized com munity. The |>oiice is miserably inefficient, being altogether inadequate for such an .mtnense city, and rapidly degenerating into the worst vices ol the old corrupt system Again, look at the omn.busses, Broadway is almost impassable by jiedestrians at the crossings, in consequence of the miserable sys em-"rather the wan, of all system, under which he huge, lumbering omnibuses are managed ? There is no regularity whatever in the management of these public conveyances, which are now amongs t he most disagreeable and dangerous nuisance which disgrace the city. But above all, the wasteful cxpcnd.iures of the public money, and the immense ?er ase oi taxation, cry aloud for reform, and aP to the pockets-,he tenderes. sensibilit.es 0," every tax-paying citizen. It is utterly impossible for the great body of the sensible people of this city to accomplish any reform by the present party. We must have a new par ty. We must have a city reform party?a cty re orm party, altogether disconnected with ?nv j>oliticaJ organization. This is what we have so iong and so anxiously recommended. Now is the tune to commence the movement We have got through with the State election. The political parties have had their periodical conflict. Let "C *lae' and the intelligent, and the sensible men of all parties in this city?those who desire the welfare of New York, its progress and prosperity, and their own individual comfon aud security, at once begin a reform movement, and carry it on with vigor and spirit till April. There is Plenty o, time to dtscuss, and agitate, and debat" and call public meetings, and excite public attention, so that the great body of the voters of this city amounting to over sixty thousand, may come for ward to the polls, and elect as municipal officers men of intelligence, of liberal and public-spirited views, and who will not sacrifice the interests of pilUics.Rt ShnDe ?f C?"UPt and corruPtin? Pmy We want a reduction of the public expenditures we want reduction of taxes. The people of the city have been too long plundered. It ,s most iniquitoul that the people of this metropolis should be heavily axed for t.ie purpose of supporting a particular poll heal party. Down with this infamous system of supporting party hacka-and party Presses-and party leaders, at the public expense. We have had too much of this. Every succeeding year the evil to r r ;rr*lt 18 very ewy ,o put an end It. Let the honest and sensible citizens of all parties unite, and the work is done. We want also forms alftS TC Wam innumerable municipal re forms, all most important as connected with the health of every ITzT^'Z"' ^ a"d the '< ri,? J CJtlzeDl Let die new party be called the City Reformers." Le, them be confined to that single question of city reform. Let all political objects be studiously avoided. Ifsuch a party orga and leTthe'8 81mple and popular basis, be formed and Jet the great movement-which we have thus in|ieifecily sketched, bu, on which we shall here! after fully dilate-be conducted in the right spint and all the old parties will be swept off the field and the city be at last blessed with a vigorous, upright common sense, cheap and salutary govirnmfnt Now is the time to begin the work. Who moves Recovery ok the Lost Mail Bag, and the whole ov its valuable Contents.?Last evening, the lost mail from Albany of the 11th met., was re covered by the Captain of the Eleventh Ward Po lice. It waslound by a poor German picker up of rugs, and taken to No. 226 Willet street, whence it was brought to the Post Office with all its contents untouched. The |>onch had been cut 0(>en?perhaps by the unconscious " gatherer of unconsidered tn j^8"_but all was safe. It had evidently been drop ped, by accident, from the wagon ot the mail car rier. The loss of this mail was the cause of great excitement to those expecting mail letters on that day, and they will be gratified to learn the recovery ot the same. OcR Relations with Mexico.?It would appear that the former condition of our relations with Mexico is about to be resumed. The proposition of amicable negotiation came, it seems, from this country. It is not certain yet whether the Mexican factions will not prevent such a |>eaceful settlement from taking place Foreign Exports.?Every packet ship leaving this port for Liverpool is tilled with our agricultura products, and it is highly interesting and gratifying to see the great and rapidly increasing variety of our shipments. The packet ship Fidelia sailed yester day lor Liverpool with the following cargo:?

A few yours since our packet ships were com pelled to load>ith cotton on their outward voyages, or go out in ballast; now, notwithstanding ihe in crease in the number of packet and transient ships in this trade, they all sail with lull cargoes. The most extraordinary shipment in the Fidelia, is the JbK> barrels iron ore. Onions, beans and leather are very unusual exports from this country to England bui we have no doubt in a few years they will be staple shipments. There is a very large trade grow ing up between this country and Great Britain in provisions, and our agricultural exports alone, must gen ' xrecd ?n valt'e the aggregate cost of our im ports * Polly Bonm.'s IW-Th.

Edwin Croswell, it is said, will vacate in favor of Sherman, and an effort will be made to make the organ more acceptable to the masses?more the representative of the onward impulses of the age. Indeed, a very curious revo lution in the democracy of this State, is now in pro gress Amongst other indications of the new movement, is the approaching dissolution of the .Vwi, ?| this city. Without any sympathy with the l>opular masses, and the organ of abolitionism, and all sort* of isms, its fate may be easily predicted. Sporting Intelligence. TkOTKISG OS THI UxiOS COVRtK, L. I., VciTZRDAT.? The attendance at this course was both numerous and respectable. It was generally understood as being " the last appearance of Moscow for this season," consequent ly many were anxious to see his last effort, preparatory to what may be expected of him in coming time. The struggle was for a purse and stake of $3">0. Mile heats, best three in five, in harness. P. Hunt named b. g. Moscow. Geo. Spicer named b. g. Americus. Americus went otT with the lead, but Moscow fetched him on the turn, passed at the quarter, and led to the half in 1:16. Americus closed on him at the three-quarter. In coming round the top Moscow broke, and Americus led home, two lengths in front, in 2:34J. In the second heat, the start was even, but Moscow led st the quarter, and as before, made the half in 1:16 ; ho maintained bis position to within twenty or thirty feet of home, with Americus well up, but at this point Mos cow broke, owing to the indifferent management of his driver, P. Hunt. He took to running, and passed the score thus a head in front. The judge*, in consequence, awarded the heat and money to Americus. Time 2:33]. Moscow was certainly not in condition?he had not time to recover from his recent complaint, the cracks in his heels, and other disorders " which (borse) flesh is lioir to." This was the opinion of his owner, who did not support him, and who advised Moscow's admirers to do likewise. The betting throughout was about even; U anything, Americus had the call. Immediately after, a match for 9900, mile beats, best three in Ave, under the saddle. II Woodruff nemod blk. g. Newburgh. W. Wheelan b. m. Fashion.

This is the last appearance of Moscow, under his pre sent proprietor, who retires from this description ot sp ort, and is about to dispose of his flne animal. This limy he regretted by many admirers of trotting, for cer tainly the General has afforded some good sport during the past season, though on the whole, in this neighbor hood, has not been so successful as was anticipated. It was not the animal's fault?he was worked too much IJ. S. Steamer Michigan.?This vessel ari^ted at litis port yesterday, trom below. At 12 o'clock, noon, < apt.

Park Thkatrr.?A very respectable audience assem bled last night at the Park, to greet the Delcy (roups, and witness the liist representation of "Lucy of Laa mermoor." The opera was well put upon the stage, and abound* with the sweetest, softeat, and most beau tiful music Donizetti ever wrote. The story is founded, as all are probably aware, on Sir Walter Scott's novel of the "Bride of I.ammermoer"?tho libietto by Messrs. Q. Bowea and Rophino Lacy. Miss Delcy has much improved iu appearance and voioe, during her Southern tour, and sung her rtU most charmingly. The duett, at the close of the second act, with Mr. Gardner, commencing "Ah ! my sighs shall on the balmy breeze," was loudly and rapturously ap plauded. Mr. Gardner sung in much better taste and time than when here lant The aria hi 'ict 3rd, scene 3rd, was loudly and enthusiastically encored. Mr. Brough also succeded remarkably well?though we must say his style is not exactly to our taste. Miss Delcy acted her part, as well as sung the music in the mad scene, after the murder of "Arthur," in a very superior manner. This was her greatest ert'ort. At the conclusion of the performance, the troupe ap peared, in answer to the loud call of the audience, and bowed their thanks. "Lucy of Lammermoor" will again be repeated to night. Bowert Theatre.?Last evening we witnessed such a rush at tho Bowery as we never remember to have seen before ; in fact, we question whether in the annals of theatricals in this country, such a crowd ever assem bled at any theatre on any occasion. Long before the opening of the doors, the walk in front was rendered ut terly impassable by the eagerness of the crowd, and hnndre is, no doubt, left without being able to obtain scats. Beforo the rising of the curtain every nook and corner in the house had its occupant. The occasion was a complimentary benefit to Mr. John M. Trimble, the architect and builder of the new Bow ery. Upon the rising of the curtain, Mrs. Phillips came forward, and delivered a very finely written poem. The curtain then rose for " King Lear," in which Mr. Scott played the King. It was a powerful performance, chaste and classic. The minor characters wore well performed. Tho farce of the " Wandering Minstrel," in which Mr. Mitchell played his favorite character of Jem Bags, was then played, and the evoning closed with the farco of" Scan Mag." This evening Die same bill, with the exception of the " Wandering Minstrel," is again pre sented, owing to the disappointment of so many last evening. Herr Aieiander.?Owing to the flattering reception with which he has met, and at tho urgent solicita tion of some of the first families in the city, this wonder ful man has concluded to remain with us another week. Tho ladies will crowd to Niblo's this week in any quan tities. Alexander has such a pleasing mannerof con ducting his exhibitions that every body is delighted. Ail who have not seen him will, of course, improve the pre sent opportunity. Alhamra.?The audiences at this capital place of amusement are still on the increaso. This week Mons. rhillipe, and Miss Mary St. Clair, and Dr. Valentine ar delighting the people there. Music koh the Million.?The Kthiopian company have washed their faces and aro giving capital vocal concerts at Franklin Hall. German Opera.?Great preparations are making to produce in a superior and magnificent style, a series of German opera's in this city, during the winter. We have had a French and Italian operatic company hore which succeeded admirably; yet the number of native1 French and Italians, including Americans, who speak tho language, is very small. According to the last cen sus, the number of French and Italians does not exceed 5,000, while the number of Germans is over 30,000 What then is to prevent the German opera succeeding, providing there is a good ore ratio troupe ? We hare at all events an excellent prima donna in the person of Ma dame Otto. She has a superb voice and is one of the best musicians in the city. The taste for German literature is rapidly increasing, and a German newspaper is con ducted here with talent and ability?why not a German oDerathen l We should not be surprised to see the Ger man opera and language become even more popular than the French. Leopold De Meter.?Leopold De Meyer,accompanied by his secretary, left this city yesterday morning, in the cars lor Boston, where he intends giving ooncerts on i hursday, Saturday and Monday evenings. The lion pianist took with him his magnificent Erard," and tho musical critics of our sister city, can now judge whether it roars as loudly and sweetly, when touched by the hand of this wonderful man, as has been represented.? No artiste over received so much attention as has been paid to De Meyer, since his arrival in this country. He iias been feted and feasted?his table has been litte; litterally covered with invitations to parties, dinners, soirect, ex cursions, &c., from the highest and generally most ex clusive classes of society. His gentlemanly manner and courteous demeanor, have in fact won him "golden opin ions from all sorts of people," and we havo no doubt his reception by the good citizens of Boston, wilt be most brilliant, at once characteristic of their hospitality, good sense and taste. It is rumored that Chickering, of Bos ton, is manufacturing a grand piano, which he intend* presenting to De Meyer, and which he means shall rival the famous Erard. Olf. Bi ll and his vocalist, Mr. Duffield, arrived here vesterday, and will give a grand farewell concert short ly. An excellent opportunity Is here presented for a glorious, tremendous, and terriffic flare up among the small potato critics, with which our city abounds. The finale of Ole Bull will undoubtedly be highly amusing and interesting. Mrs. Valentine Mott, who made her debut at the Apollo, before one ol the most aristocratic, fashionable, and brilliant audiences ever congregated, is creating a great sensation throughout the country, if we may judge by the tone of the newspapers. We understand she in tends continuing her career as a professional vocalist, and perhaps other cities may have an opportunity of judging of her abilities. Her next appearance in public, will be at a concert to be given by the philharmonic so ciety. Openino of the New Orleans American Theatre.? This favorite establishment is to be onenod this evening for the season. During the recess it has been cleansed, painted and whitewashed throughout, and although the lonn of the interior has been in no way changed, at a lighting up last evening we could not but be struck with the splendid coup d' mil which the American presented. As to the size of this establishment, we will give the fol lowing statement of its dimensions, taken from the box book : Parquette 511 First tier boxes 537 Private do 107 Second do 330 Third do 400 Total number of seats 1875 From this it will be seen that the American is among the largest theatres ofthe country, and the managers appear determined to give a succession of entertainments during the ensuing season, which will give them a full share of the public patronage. An efficient orchestra, numbering among its members Cioffi, Gahici, Croce, and other musicians ofthe highest repute,has been engaged, the dramatic company will vie with any in the country , and the equestrian entertainments will far excel any that have been previously given in the southwest.' We look for a prosperous season at the Ameri can ? N. O. Pic., Mb.

Of* Shit YaRhs.?W? took ? very interesting stroll yesterday morning, visiting our diflerent shipyards bor daring on the East River,and in'which wa fathered aome few particular* of information worthy of record as among the events of the day. The importance of our marine hat long been manifest, and it i* only from ob servation and daily experience that we are permitted to realize a full aenae of its wonderfhl and increasing strength. ... ,. , , , At the yard of Messrs.Brown * Bell, those distinguish ed shipbuilders, all the world over, we discovered what seemod to us quite an anomaly, inasmuch as that we found their stocks unencumbered and unoccupied, al though we were pleased to learn, that they have receiv ed orders for one of the largest ships ever yet construct ed, and intended for Messrs. Woodhull h Minturn. Bite is to be in capacity and size the largest ship ever yet built for the merchant service, of some 1 '>00 tons. Her keel is to be laid in early Spring. She is for their well known Liverpool line, of which the Queen of the West and Liverpool nro conspicuous. At the yard of Messrs. Smith &. Dimon, we found the new steamer Oregon undergoing some slight repairs, preparatory to her resuming the Stouington route next season. A very incorrect impression seems to exist, that she is wanting in strength to navigate the Sound. We are assured, by those qualified to judge, that she is in every respect equal to the most boisterous storms which sometime* visits these waters?and that her lust trip hitberward, encountering one of the severest gales of many years, fully justiiies thia opinion. We also found one or two small sized steamers under process of construction. At the yard of Mr. W. H. Webb, we observed one of tho larger class of ships in a forward state, answering the following dimensions 167 feet on drck, 30} feet beam, 31 feet hold, and of about 1100 tons measurement, "he is being built for Messrs. Taylor k Merrill, and pro bably designed for the Liverpool trade?her model is similar to the Yorkshire,from the same yard, and may be considered her sister ship. She is to be launched about the middle of January. This gentleman has ulso another ship under way, of still larger dimensions, intended for Charles H. Marshall, Esq , and to lorm one of the Black Ball line, running to Liverpool. In this neighborhood we rocognised the steamboats Traveller, Globe, Mohegan, Narogansctt, and other smsdler steamers,'laid up for win ter quarters. Mr. W. H. Brown, foot if 13th street, has quite a Beet of steamers and other water craft in a state of forward ness?for the People's Line he lias a leviathan steamer of 1100 tons, to be called the " George Washington." She is 310 feet long, 40 feet beam, 7.1 feet wide on deck, 10} feet hold, and will be launched about the lOtlt Dec. She is to be propelled by an engine of 1100 horse power, from the Allaire Works. Here we found a steamer of 600 tons, constructed with a view to great strength, for sea-going purposes, and designed for the Southern seas? her en gine is from the foundry of Messrs Dunham & Browning. A still smaller steamer of 130 feet length, nearly ready for her future element; a steamboat of 330 feet length and intended for tho fforth river?engine from Mr. J. Cort'ee's establishment,is in an active state of forwardness, and twill be launched in the early part of winter; a steamship for the Charleston trade, ol 300 feet length, 800 tons burthen, under contract and to be placed on the stocks immediately?her engines by Secor & Co. are to be of 800 horse power?also, a ship of 650 tons for the Charleston trade, the keel ol which will soon be laid ; at this yard we found the steamer " Brother Jonathan," re cently launched. It may be well to state that the unri valled Hendrick Hudson and the steamship Galveston, were both built at the yard of Mr. Brown, and launched the present season. At Collier's yard, we found a pretty model of a schooner of about 150 tons, nearly ready to launch. She is designed for the southern Gators. At Lawrence & Sneiden's, we observed a steamboat in a rapid state of completion. At Wostervelt 8c McKay's, the " Arcole".(launched on Saturday) was engaged taking her spars aboard, and un dergoing other operations preparatory to her voyago toward La Belle France; they also had a ship on tho stocks, and another under orders, both of which will be ready for the spring trade. From indications not to be disguised, we are fully sat islled that our commercial men and shipping merchants, are anticipating a wonderful increase in their inter course with other nations, and which iu part accounts for tho large number of vessels now ordered, or hasten ing to completion. Thk, County Siikkrintendknt ok Common Schools.? The public are aware that Dr. lteese, the late County Superintendent of Common Schools, appealed from the decision of the Board of Supervisors ot this city, dismis sing him from that oMice, to the State Superintendent The State Superintendent, without looking at all into the merits of the question, has decided that he is incompe tent to act in the premises, for want of jurisdiction, and therefore dismissed the appeal. German Hebrew Society.?The Society meet to morrow evening. It is said that Dr. Liliendale, the chief Rabbi of Russia, just arrived from St. 1'etersburgh, will be present and speak on the occasion.

Those w ho may wish to adorn a ad beautify their homes with lino paintings, should not let pass the present rare opportunity of obtaining good Rf.v. Mr. Southard.?It is said that the Rev. Mr. Southard, of Calvary Church in this city, will probably receive the call to the third assistant rectorship of Trinity, on tho completion of the now church. Mr. ; Southard is of the high church connection, and ono of the youngest presbyters, in orders, in the diocesa, and is the son of the late lamented Senator of New Jersey, whose name, Samuel L. Southard, is so distinguished in the po litical history of tbis country for many years A Comical. Df.br Huwt.?Mr. Coles and two friends left this city the lore part of last week, for Long Island, on a duck shooting excursion, and while out ducking iu their sail boat, on the Peconic Bay, near Riverhead.tney saw a man at some little distance, apparently struggling with and striking with his oar some unimul, which ap peared to them to be a deer. They accordingly put the helm up and made sail for the scene of action, wnen lo, to behold, it proved as was anticipated, to be a large buck swimming handsomely, and going with the tide at u swinging pace, so much so that he had escaped from tho man who had banged him over the head, and was last leaving him behind. Mr. Coles and his friends, who occupied the sail boat, forthwith slipped out their smell duck shot and loaded up with buck shot, all in anxious expectation of getting the first shot; and when within about twelve or fifteen yards, one of the party fired,and struck poor Mr. deor directly behind tho ear, which keeled him over 011 his aide, to tho great amusement of all parties, except the man who was chasing him in the row boat, for in the great excitement (as you may well suppose upon such an occasion) the sail boat came in collision with the man in the small boat: and then what a sightJust imagine?the dead ducks floating, the man swimming and his gun sinking. However, while all this was going on, those in the sail boat were not idle.? One immediately seized hold of the buck by the horn,to pull him on board, when to their astonishment, the man who was upset from the row boat,was clambering up on the other side. Now the grand tug of war commenced ?he claiming the deer, when those who had possession were determined not to deliver it up. It appears from what we can learn that some Southsiders had started the buck and chased him some hours previous. The hounds wore close on his trail, consequently compelled him to take to the water; the hunters,however,shortly came up, the hounds having stopped at where the deer took to the water. They there learned the fate of their day's sport. Upon a meeting taking place one of tho Southsiders stepped up and demanded the buck as their property, which the party in possession stoutly denied,going upon the principle of the old adage, that possession is nine points of the law. Therefore,finding alt argument in vain to obtain tho prize, they turned upon their heels, called in the dogs, and made tracks for the Squire, of whom they procured a writ to hold the parties to hail in the sum of $40 for trespass;, namely for carrying off n deer (which was shot by the New Yorkers) from the South aiders, claimed by'tbem because ho hail been hunted two or three hours previously. Surely this will be a funny trial. How tho matter will torminate time will tell. We are not aware of any law touching this parti cular point at present. But this wo do know, that where parties are huuting, and should the deer fall un der similar circumstances amongst sportsmen, it would lie delivered up to the parties in pursuit. No doubt the Long Island hunters will look with some anxiety for a 'locision in this matter; it does, however, strike us, as being more of a point of honor than a point of law. In conclusion, we would state that the man who was upset from the boat,and came very near being drowned,did not belong to the Southsidors, but worked entirely on his own hook. The Omnibus Re isolations.?We published a few days since, the corporation laws for the regulation of omnibusses, not one of which any omnibus driver enter tains the least idea of obsurving. A lew evonings since, we saw a driver deliberately wheel around in Broad way. for tho purpose of racing at full speed with anoth 1 r. Probably, if the concern had upset, aqd a do/on va luable lives been lost,"no blame could be attached to the drirer." Whose business is it to see these regulations enforced f Tho sleek, fleshy gentlemen, who meet oc casionally, and after discussing certain matters relative to the welfare of the "dear people," adjourn te the "lea mom," where a discussion of more substantial matters takes pisce pass laws for the regulation of the omni busses. Our oiti/.eus, relying upon them for protection, trust themselves in the care of the drivers, thinking that the laws are very good, and feeling perfectly sate so long as they are obeyed . But they soon find that they have been "reckoning without their host." Kvory single 1 egulation of the omnibus law is disregarded-and The jiassonger has the comfortable knowledge that he is at ttso niency of some drunken driver. Now, whose busi ness is it to prevent tnose trsmplings of the law 7 Our citizens cannot leave their business to make and follow up complaints of this nnture, and if they could, it does not belong to them. They have delegated,and well paid, the corporation to do this for them they make the laws - it is their duty to sec them cnforceiL Why do they not instruct their officers to look out and report all do hnqtiencas 7 The people are calling upon them to do somothinr besides incinase taxes and lessen the benefits to be derived from them.

Their plan will of conr-e have a decided tendency to destroy the system of street begging. They make an appeal to the sympathies of the public, which it is to be hoped will not lie disregarded.

It is of brown pecked freestone, very handsomely carved, and adds much to the beauty of Wall street. -Death ofthe Bov Rem as.

Scene for a Vaudeville.?A tall, gaunt looking Ger man, with a long drab coat, calling himself Andrew Williamson, was brought up this morning before Jus . lice Drinker, looking rather the worse for the last night's 1 soiree, with a face as long as a jackass, charged by a po < liceman with being drun* and singing in the street, and , otherwise disorderly.

Pukpoeketi in Wall street - Persons should be very careful,going in and out of the hanks. We notic ed yesterday (and in tact they are playing the same gaaie every duy) in Wall street, between J nnd ft two notorious pickpockets, were hanging around the banks, dressed in tlio most fashionable manner, wearing handseme cloaks -that being a cloak for their nefarious business. Tho process of operation we will simply ex plain. One will follow persona into the banks, to see l ow and where their money is put; while the other keep* watch outside. Consequently, if the money is placed to suit their purpose, the victim is dogged out of the hank, almost to a lock step, his accomplice close at hand, to carry off the plunder; and if no speedy oppor tunity offers, why. one of the party will step before you, their back In your way, and tread upon your toes,which isdond to attract your attention, while his accomplice at that moment picks your pocket. Wo make these few remarks to put our citizens on tholr guard: neverthe less, if our energetic Chief of Police would tske this matter in hand, and atation one of jjjg special officers in Wall street (that is, one wh? knows moa' ?f thes" ra* eels,) so as to rout them, Whan seen lurking about tho banks, ho would, we have no doubt, save many thou sands ol dollars, and meet the wishes of the public.

Aid. Messerole ably sustained the position of Aid. Briggs in a long speech, practically applied?refuting the arguments of Alii. Charlick, showing the advantages which would revert to the poorer classes, benefitting thern by means of a cheap and ready access to our city. He was favorably disposed to grant this company all the facilities they ask at our hands?they deserve our nour ishing support and continued protection. Aid. Charlick respondeJ, by making some allusions of rather a personal naturo, upon Aid. Messerole, ami dwelt at much length in support of his previously ox pressed opinions. Aid. Messerole repelled some of the insinuations of Aid. Charlick, and by his manner exhibited much feel ing. AM. Charlick rose to reply to some of the recrimina tions of Aid. Messerole. A warm and animated defence was made in nehalf of a gentleman of Brooklyn, once largely interested in tho manufacture of gin, but now u retired citizen of wealth.
