I known the treasury ww not full enough to supply the
i demands upon It, and our charitable institutions were
but meagerly sustained. Under these circumstances it
was injudicious to make a precedent which might here
after be greatly abused.
Mr. Cabk, (dem.) of Onondaga thought the State had
better pay its just debts before it made needless and ex
travagant expenditures. Those whe had labored on our
' public works are in ueed of their pay, and thtoir draft* on
| the treasury are dishonored. He would, in his private
i business, first pay his just debts before he spent money
uselessly. If $6,000 was to be appropriated at all it
should be given to Gen. Worth's family.
Mr. J. Rome, (dem.) of N. Y. was always an advocate
for economy, but the proposition before the House was
one of simple justice to one of our most eminent military
men. whore career had been equally honorable and useful
to the country. The amount called for was small, and
the great State of New Yrrk should not on'y give this ,
token of its gratitude for the ser vices of tie n. Worth, hut
! it ought to do imre, and erect monuments to others of its
| glorious benefactors. It would bring odium u|xm the
Mate to parsimoniously refuse this appropriition. It was
an insult to the penple of the Stato to supposo tbpy would
objeot to the light taxation this would occ.islon Ron.
Worth's family were not able to orect a monument from
their own means.
Mr. L. Osr.oon, (deia.) of Chenango, saw no reason for
throwing away S6,000 Gen. Worth's reputation wouli
not be increased by this monument; his memory would
be perpetuated lorger by his deeds than by any monu
ments that can be erected.
Mr. B. Smith, (dem.) tf St. Lawrence, called the at
teulli n of the House to the fact that small appropriations
at times form a precedent for enormous expenditures, and
j lie saw reason to suppose this instance was one of them.
I Mr. 1'ktkrh thought if the family of Gen. Worth were
destitute, the appropriation should be f)r their benefit?
| but this proposition was literally giving thorn a stone
1 when thoy needed bread. He did not bellove in erecting
monuments to military men. (Jen. Worth had buon re
i warded for his services by the high distinction he had at
tained ft would bo better to orect monuments to those
I famous an the more useful benefactors or their raco by
I their wise civil policy.
j Mr. Huk mxs, (dem ) of Kings, hoped the House
j would not prove Itrelf to be us poor in gratitude as its
i treasury was in means.

| Mr. Ciaip, (whig) of Erie, said his sense of the grati
tude due from tlio Male to olc of its sons, who hud
fallen in the defence of his country, nai not of that kind
which would withhold a paltry appropiiation for a stuc#
to indicate the spot where the hero was buried.
Mr. Holi.ky, (whig) of Niagara, knew there were some
who were constantly depreciating the credit anl the
honor of the State? attempting to prove that it was
bankrupt. It was disgraceful to those in high positions
to moan over the poverty of the State. It is not poor,
and they cannot make it so. Gen. Worth was a native
of this State, and it was a debt of gratitude to that soldier
for his long life of eminent services. We are told his fa
mily is poor. This may well be so, for in serving his
country ho had no opportunity to hoard up wealth for
his family.
For gold tlio sailor ploughs the main,
The farmer ploughs the mauor;
But glory is the soldier's (rata ?
The soldier's wealth is honor.
Mr. H. knew it was not necessary to the memory ot
General Worth that a monument should be ereoted over
I bis remains: but to erect it was neco?sary to save the
State from disgrace. On its own account, and not on his,
the State should pay this debt of gratitude No marble,
however expensive, can adi anything to the lame of
General Worth, but it will reflect honor on us. And while
this subject was up, it mitfht be proper to move an addi
tional appropriation of $6,000 for another gallant General
of this State, whose remains hadloug lain without a mo
nument on the haul's of the Mohawk. He alluded to
Gen. Herkimer, who fell at Oiiskany in defence of his
country, at a dark period of our history.
Mr. Wtbhh withdrew his amendment.
Mr. Champun (dem ) of Allegany, would renew it to
make a single remark. The constitution required that
no bill for a local object should include more than oue
subject, and the amendment ef Mr. Hollky might de
feat the bill.
Mr. Hoixkv withdrew his amendment.
Mr. Hastings taw, when the bill was introduced, that
it would create difficulty. There were men In tho House
wbo desired to bring tho expenditures of the State with
in its means, and he was glad of it. At the outset nil
had agreed to economise and bring down expenditures to
the measure of rosouroes. But now there seems to be
some who arc willing to lavish the means of the State to
prove how benevolent and patriotic they are. Any ap
propriation that will brlrg them a revenue of glory they
eloquently defend. Gen. Worth served the country at
laTge, ani if a monument is erected to hia memory it
should be done by the State* at large. It is time to talk
about State gratitude when it is proposed to erect monu
ments to those who have rendered distinguished services
to our own State. Let all the States unite in the honor
of erecting a monument to Gen Worth, for aU are
equally tinder obligations to him. Our State charitable
institutions are asking for aid to accommodate those
who netd their assistance, and we must reject their do.

I'1 Mrl? lxx>3TlB, (dem.) of Herkimer, said the names of
many worthy citizens, in civil and militarj life, wore in the
memory of all, who had no monument erected to their
honor, except those who rest in the grateful memory of
the peoile. "Xielding to no one in admiration of those
who deserve well of their country, he could not consent
to opening the door to so large an expenditure as must
follow the passage of this bill. He regretted it bad been
introduced; he could not sustain its and he disliked to

The Gardner Case.
Washi.nuto*, April 4, 1853.
Id the Gardner case, to-day, Augustus J. Keese testi
fied to having served notice on Gardner that the Presi
dent wax about to tend an agent to Mexico, and propo
sing, if be thought proper, to Rend a person to point out
his mine, and pay all expenses; also submitting two other
propositions, if this was not acceptable. Gardner do
clined every proposition, on the ground that two commis
sioners had previously expressed ths opinion that the
mine was a fraud. Augustin I)o Aguilar, a Mexican law
ytr, judge, Ac., at San Luis Potosi, testified that the sig
ns tu res of Pe I .os Rcges, Guzman, and Fernandi, upon
fiArdner's mining title, were forgeries. He also identi
fled a copy of the mining laws of Mexico, and Ravo a va

Then ni a great crowd in and about the Court room.
Judge Kelly charged the juror* upon the opening of the
April term, after which the calling of jurora for the 8prlng
case waa commenoed. The Attorney General instituted
strict inquiries to pi event parties not nuimneoed from
terving. Very few answered that had not for mod an
opinion of the guilt of the prisonar; but when the opinion
was such as not to bias the jitdgrnent, the challenge for
caure was overruled. Many peremptory challenges were
made by the defence, and onlv Ore jurors were obtained
out of thr^regular panel. The Sheriff wax ordered to

making eleven in all. The xfaerlff waa then ordered to

The Bulletin says that an incident occurred in the Ner
vier* of tin' notices upon the petit jurors, which, bad it
not been for the intelligence of the fierxon summoned,
might have led to a similar difficulty to tlwt displayed in
the lsst jury which tried Spring. William Kemp, shoe
maker, Locust ward, had been drawn from tlio wheel,
and placed upon the veuire. but by some ascident, the
jury notice found its way into the hands of William Kemp,
shoemaker. Fourth ward, South wark. The latter, on
receiving the notice, and believing that he was not the
person meant, waited upon the county commitsioners,
and then upon the sheriff, and had ,4he error rectified.
An error like this might readily have passed without dix
covnry. as the names and bubiness of the two men were
precisely similar.
1 he prisoner looked well, and wore a smile upon his
countenance, probably excited by hope. He took part in
selecting tlie jurors, and appeared to feel great interest
in the unswers to the questions propounded to them.
s Interesting from Nova Scotia.
We have received a copy of tho report of the Commit
tee on Trade and Manufacture*, recently made to the
House of Assembly of Nova Scotia, by which it appears
that tbe amount of goods, wareB and manufactures, im
ported into the port of Halifax alone, from tho United
State*, during tho year of 1852, was $317,260, chiefly at a
duty of six and a quarter per cent and under, wliich, if
imported into the United States, would have been charg
ed with a duty of from twenty to forty per cent, and
which, it is contended, could be manufactured in tho
province an cheaply as in this country ? that the total
amount of importations into Halifax from the Unitod
States, during the same year, including $.170,118 of flour
and lircadstulTs, was $889,174; and that the total exports,
during the aame periods, amounted to $343,672 ; leaving
a balance of $645,402 in favor of the United States in
tbat port alone, being an increase on the preceding
year of no leas than $151,614, while the exports have di
minished during both years. The committee have been
unable to ascertain the value of the imports of manufac
tured goods into the province, but express their oon
viction that it amounts to a considerable sum, and so
greatly excecds the export* to this country aa to consti
tute a disadvantageous and adverse trade.
The committee also report, that they have examined
manufacturer* established at Halifax, and engaged in tho
manufacture of iron castings, atoves, tic., clothing and
tailoring, domestic w ine*, *yrup, cordial* hat* and caps,
soap, boot* and shots, furniture, pails and bucket*, and
marble, who Eeverally complain of the ruinous effects of
the low rates of duties, and who are sanguine that were
they protected from foreign competition, and secured in
the enjoyment of the home market, they would bo able
to supply the domestic market with tbo.-e articles at as
cheap a rate as they can be imported from abroad, in
which opinion the committee concur ; and, further, tbat
were it not for tho protective policy of the United States,
tbe colonist*, to a considerable extent, could supply the
American market.
A considerable portion of the report is devoted to the
consideration of the injurious results that aocrue to the
province from this state of things ? the want of employ
ment which is thus created, and the extensive emigration
of tbe more youthful aud active portion of tliu communi
ty. Tbe committee claim for rts artificers, that a< this
republic has shut its markets Ifiait them and their
production*, our manufacturers should not be sllowed to
interfere with ihem in their own market. " If," nay tlio
committee, " the United States would take off their du
tie*. we should not seek for protection; but so lonir as
they refuse to purchase from us, self defence requires
that wo should abstain from purchasing from them."
W? do not entirely concur with tbe reasonibg and de
ductions of the chairman of tho committee, who seems to
have overlooked the fact, that the large amount of bread
stuffs imported from the United States were the produc
tion of Canada, which should have reached the province
by tbe direct toute of tbe St. Lawrence -a most conclusive
evidence, that it* inhabitants are not prepared to avail
themselves of tlte advantages they already possess.
The committee observe, that "whilo intending protec
tion toother classes, they would not omit to recommend
the fishermen to tlio especial care of tho Legislature.
Nothing is required to recuit the numbers of that invalu
able class of subjects, and to furnljb them with abundant
anil remuierative employment except simple and even
handed justices I.et the Legislature " say" they, 'firmly
and resolutely require of Her Majesty's ministers that
protection against the encroachments rf the United
States which ought long since to have been awarded.
l.et Per Majest>'s government, bo respectfully infotmod,
tbat in return for that allegiance so cheerfully yielded to
the sovereignty of the Queen, her colonial subjects are
entitled to be protected by tho parent State against the
imnsion of their property by a foreign power, and ?hen
the fisheries are rescued from foreign intrusion, thousands
of Dritish st amen will find profitable employment on our
coasts and become expensive consumers of tho produc
tions of agriculture nnd the arts."
After alluding to the laxity which evidently prevails in
the collection of the revonue throughout the province, bv
which even the low rate of duty is considerably rodnced,
the report concludes with tho following table of those
which at present exist in Nova Scotia and New Bruns
wick, those which it is rccommcnded to levy, and those

Trade Between Raxteni and Western Cities.
[From tho C'bicago Democrat, March 30 ]
It is un itom of great importance to the cities of the
Atlantic coast to know which of the three, Philadelphia,
New York or Boston, shall secure tto mercmtlle interests
of the thriving and increasing cities of the West. This
is a source of rivalry to those cities, and naturally ereates
a great deal of jealousy among them.
Nuw York has undoubtedly shared largest in the bene
fits of Western trade thus far, and a prospect for a d'ffer
ent result would be met by that, oily with continued
The proposed " Air Line" communication with Phila
delphia would meet uncompromising contest from New
Yoik, where it not that almost simultaneously with that
connection, the mercantile tactician* and interested ope
rators of New York will have a direct road completed
from their city to Harrisburg, thereby rendering them
able to engage In the future contest with quite as favo
mble prospects as they now enjey.
Boeton would, perhaps, be considered too far away,
were it not for some advantages tbat her capitalists pos
sees, that render hor able to compete against this dis
tance. The circnmstarces which are strongly in her f.i
vor are her commercial vigor, and tho faet that her
molded men ate large stockholders in many of the lines
of ti asportation connecting with the West and North
west. She Is not by any mean* considered an Inconside
rable rival by the other cities in the mercantile oompe
tition. But the general impression that New York is now
in 'lie advance, naturally fosters the imprexsinn that
with her superior advantages she will he mist likely to
attain m.H hold a permanent supremacy in thisrrspoct.

Washington, April 4?0 P. M.
A large number of nominations were sent into the
Senate to-day. Among them wai the Domination of 0. 6.
Davenport as Chief Justice for New Mexico, vice Judge
Maker, removed. This nomination led to an Interesting
and important discussion upon the power of the Presi
dent to remove from office a federal Judge in the Territo
ries. Ihla, however, has long been doubted. It is not
derived from the constitution, nor de the laws creating
thece Judges confer the power in express terms. On the
coutrary, they prescribe that the Judges shall held- their
oflieea tor four years. The removal ot Judge Baker on

last evening, at the Btu> vnsant Institute, W. C. H. Wad
dell presiding, and Peter B. Mead olttciatinpaa secretary.
The attendance was not very numerous, but a great deul
of interest was manifested in the proceedings. Am >ng
the floral beauties exhibited were some remarkably fine
ccmellas, a large number of monthly roses, a cactus, a
hibheus, araleas, cinerarias, verbenas, pansles, gerani
nms, xtockgillles, and bouquets. The rueoting was called
to order about tight o'otock. after which the minuted of
tie previous meeting were read and tho usual prelimi
nary business transacted. The Executive Committee re
ported, in accordance with previous instructions, that
they had duly considered the propriety of publishing the
circular of uie society, and that they had authorized the
Recording Secretary to have five hundred copies printed.
The report was adopted without debate. The Secretary
tead a communication, announcing the de?th of Mr. Wm.
Necle, who was formerly an astive member. Two new
members were proposed and elected The Room Com

on the third floor of the Stuyvosant Institute, at a rent
of two hundred dollars. A brief debate followed, ou a
motion to adopt the report, when it was finally put to the
vote and lost. It was then decided to refer the subject
back to the Committee; but hero a new difficulty arose by
the i of u Mil of one of the members to participate any
further in the action of the Committee. His roiignation
was accepted, after considerable opposition on the part
of the majority of the members. The greater part of the
time of the meeting \*a* consumed in a discussion as to
the accommodations and inconveniences of the room un
paged bv the Committee, the opinion of the majority
helrg decidedly unfavorable to it. There baing no fur
ther bush-ess befoie fue meeting, it adjouined till the

Father (lavaztl's PlfOi Lectam,
Father fiavar.fi delivered his fifth lecture in tlu ' Bf*d
way Tabernacle last evening, before a pretty largv ' ?udi
enco. On his appearance he was taueh appltntided Be
befged pardon of his audience for a mistake which had
appeared in a portion of the public proas, mentiok 'og
7 % o'clock a* the hour of his lecture, when- it was a n<l
would be 8 o'clock precisely. Tho subject of thi? evu ?
ing, he said, is the temporal powers of the Pope, asp* '
clally that which is called Popedom,, or tha Kingdmn <A
the Pope; and as the matter is very large, so l shall only
prove this evening thin temporal power of the Pope tot
practice as tho peculiar prince of the Romen'States; en^
with the blessing of Cod, on Friday I shall speak of (he
temporal power of the Pope, considered under the a speefc
of temporal supremacy at large, with the can cm law. Om
Friday, I cay, I shall speak on the subject of tho
Papal intolerance. Father Gavazzi then deliver
ed an address, as usual, in the Italian tongue,
alter which he proceeded with hie lecture in English
Tbe Pope is king? is king ? with power, splendor, gran
deur, and a royal court. He is a king; but the question
is, is he a lawful king? Yes ? tho temporal power of th*
Pope, is it scriptural? The answer Is rather a difficult
one. We find in the (impel. Christ preaching before Pi
late. and t-aying. "My kingdom is not of this world."
lit t a Jesuit, Cardinal liellarmino, once said that Cfrrist
answered in that way because ho was dying and that,
being so near as he was to death, really and justly an
swered, "My kingdom is not of tUlrf world; because f am
going to my father, and therefore my kingdom is of aa
t tlier world ? of the everlasting world." The answer is o
very astute answer, a verv Jesuitical answer; but I have
the honor to say that ChriBt was not a Jesuit (laughter),
and therefore Christ, when he said, "I ain the way
the life," spoke the truth. Christ was not the inventor
of the mental reservation, and therefore when Christ
raid, My kingdom is not or this world," tho words of
Christ mean that really in this world he never had*
kingdom: because if he were dying ? very well! when o
man possesses really a kingdom, even when he is dy
ing. he transmits his possession to hi* sons or heirs; and
if Christ possessed a kingdom really, he would have
left the possession to Peter as his vicar on earth, and
from Peter to all successors of Peter ? viz., he would haw
left his kingdom to the Pope. But Christ said, "My kingdom
is not of this world ," therefore I shall maintain that
really Christ never had any kingdom, and nevor will ham
a kingdom, because he was the master of all kingdoms}
and, therefore, if he chose to live only humble ana poor,
and with thorns, it is a sign that he was very far from
having principality and kingdom, and. according to the
Word of lied, we And in the New Testament all but the
temporal power of the l'opo. St. Paul said clearly ifeat
any one who is engaged with the tilings of God cannot
tcbow temporal attain. And according to this we have
the tlicurv of Christ, "Uive to Cujsar tho things of Crosar,"
and the practice of tbe primitive Christiana, according to
St. Paul, was, "Pray for all magistrate-), acd governor#,
and princes, and kings. '' Therefore, in tho primitive
times of Christianity we have no temporal power of the
Pope. More and more, according to the baok of God, we
find that Christ said ? in order to quote the authority
very well to answer my old Human Catholic brethren, a*
tbatthey may not be mistaken on this point, 1 have fith
me my very little friend, the good and faithful New TVa
tament? and 1 find in Luke, 2'J<1 chapter and lftth verse,
''Then he said unto tbcm, the kings of the Gentiles
exerciso lordship over thee, and they who exereise
authority over them ate called benefactors; but it shall
not Ire so, but he who is great among you let him be as
the younger, and he who is chief as he who doth serve.'*
Now, this text excludes entirely any principality or royal
ty among tbe Apostles, and, therefore, according to tbe
Word of fiort, we have no temporal power trftismittod to
the present l'ope ? Pope Pius IX. at Rome: and, there
fore, we can arrive at tbe first conclusion, that the tern
pcialpiwerof the Pope Is really uascriptural But if
this temporal power does not come from God, from whom
does It come / Hear n,e. Satan once appeared to our
Divine Savior, and said unto him. ''If you will kneel be
fore me, 1 shall give you all the kingdoms of the earth;"
aBd Christ answered, "Co away. Satan, (laughter) for it is
written, you shall worship only your God, who is in Hea
ven." We find at pre-ent tlmt tho successor of Peter
so culled ? and the vlear of Christ enjovs principality ami
is really a kin*. What sign is that? That he knelt be
fore Satan (Api'lause.) If Christ never did grant any
kingdom to the Pope, and if Satan premised kingdom* to
Chiist il he should worship him, therefore, when the suo
cessor of Christ, so called, possesses and enjoys a kingdom,
it is a sign that lie knelt before Satan. (Anplause.) A very
good sign, mv dear brethren, for the temporal power of
tbe Pope. The l'ope is the spiritual head of the church,
niid he enjoys the title of universal bishop from a nor
d< rerer, the Kmpcror Koetius? and he enjoys the name of
pairmiu in temporalibtii from a usurper, Pepin of Franee,
the great robber of the French kingdom. So that you
Lave (he two nuppoiters of papacy and popedom ? a mur
derer nod ? robber. History deposes to the same. We
liave Charlemagne, al .o, who granted some principalities
to the Pope in Italy, but for two purpose first, to main
tain Italy divided; bncauso, he said, until the Pope exist
Italy will not be safe, but the Pope will retain always
the possession of the pi incipality which 1 grant at pre
sent, and therefore Italy will never more be Italy. Ai
second end of Charltmirgne was to make of Italy a
province of France to defend the kingdom and empire of
France by means of Italian firms and Italian hearts. So
that wo have the Pope, in the time of Charlemagne, a
great vassal of the Frcuch empire. After that period we
?a\e, day after day, the Pope increasing in
his temporal kingdom. The Countess Matilda of
Tuscany dting. left to him all her dominion in
Tutcany. I will say, this evening, a word upon the
good n an, firegory Seventh, who prescribed ealebacy to
the Roman Catholic olergy. His historians, monks and
bishops, say that this woman, the Countess Matilda, waa
iu love with Tom' Gregory Seventh? but all spiritual love,
mv fiisnds. (Ijivghtef.) And, according to her spirit
mil love, she abandoned her second husband, and oeme
to Gregory, to Rome, in order to be near to her spiritual
lover, (laughter,) and, dying, the Counters Matilda, in
order to prove her love to b? a truly spiritual one, left to
P0)0 firegory Seventh all her possessions in Tuseany; an
that those possessions which did not belong to her, abe
It It to firegory Seventh, to prove to the whole world in
future that she loved? but loved spiritually ? the Pope
of Rome. Father fiavazzi prooeeded to describe the ter
rible misgovercmcnt of the Papal States, and the want
of progt ess and luipiovement in all material aflairs for
which tie Roman States are remarkable. In conclusion
lie adverted to the probability of America being soon
Messed with a cardinal, a rank which proved to be a secu
lar. not a religious dignitary, and read extiaats from tbe
oath prescribed to toe cardinals, to show that they are
spies and inquUltots.
