The request was granted, and the resolution when read was found to be similar to that of Dr. MeMas and re opening the coutro Danville and New Albany declared the Assembly had no intention to interfere in any way with the New Alba ny seminary nor to interrupt its operations. After a fine speech from Mr. McClung, General Wade moved the previous qnestion, and the resolution was passed. The report of the Committee on Theological Semfnariea, refusing to entertain overtures requesting the Assembly to yield the care and charge of seminaries to synods, was adopted.

Tsmm Pomrnr or Jonunrriara Rowmakwh. ?-The mem bers of the United Society of Journeymen Ropemakers of tho cities of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Buahwick. and their vicinities, have issued a circular to all ship-owners, com sumers of cordage, insurers, commanders of vessels, &c., in which they complain of an encroachment ef capital and machinery upon the fields of their labor. Although they look upon tho introduction of machinery, and its substi tution for manual labor, as working a great hardship in many branches of industry, yet they are satisfied that it ia useless to resist its application where economy, use fulness, and durability, are gained thereby. They wish to present before tho public, and particularly before those interested in this branch of manufacture, the defective nature of the article proposed to be manufactured en tirely by machinery, and the gross defects and imposi tions practised by those connected with its manufacture, in order to bring it Into competition with the rope spun by bsnd; and tlicy intend to show that in every thing else, but perhaps in appearance, the rope manufactured by hand is greatly superior to that made by machinery, and that it would amply pay the manufacturer for the increased rate of wages demanded by the employed, if a prbper discrimination was made by the consumers and those interested in the article, and a sufficient knowledge of the method of its manufacture to understand its fit ness for the purpose for which it is employed. They state it Is sought to introduce Russian yarn, spun by lianil by the serfs of Russia at twenty 'cents per day. into use; and by employing machinery in the completion of this half manufactured article, to dispense entirely with thklr labor. These workmen only ask for an investiga tion of the facts in their case; they make no demand for public sympathy, but rest satisfied that a full knowledge ef the facts will effectually correct the evils of which they complain. Motiko of tee Sitar Makers.? An adjourned meet ing of the journeymen segar milkers was held last eve ning at Washington Ilall, No. 101 KUzabeth street, for the purpose of taking further and final action upon the newly adoptod bill of prices. There were nearly one hundred persons present. Mr. T. Wslker occupied the chair, ana Mr. liurko *?? chosen Secretary. Mr. Itafill stated In a fow words the object of tho present meeting. It had been called for the purpose of ratifying the pro ceedings of the last meeting in reference to the adoption of the list of prices, and to deci le upon the adoption of the proceedings of the Convention of segar makers at Syracuse, in reference to the MB of prices. Tr.ey were to consider the interests of employers as well as journey men. Mr. Hall, an employer, moved the reconsidera tion of the minutes of tho last meeting adopting the scale of prices. Ho said the Convention ul Syracuse had bet n got up by a set of people iu Troy and Albany, an.l spoke for some'timen ainst ratification. Mr. list moved that the bill of prices be carried into effect next Monday, and that those in favor, would come up and subscribe their names. The rt solution was adopted, and numerous signatures were obtained. A gentleman rose and said that one kind of aegar had been omitted in the list of prices; that was the c!car seed regalias. On motion, this was inserted, and a resolution was adopted, Axing the price of this segar at six dollars per thousand?that is, those ranging from five and a quarter to five and a half inches In length. A collection was then taken up to defray expenses, and tho meeting adjourned. Tuk Rroracrrrata.?The eleven weeks strike of the stonecutter* is concluded at last. It has been protracted beyond any similar strugglo in tbia city that we reooUoet of. Strikes arc to lie deprecated at all times, if they can jmsalbly be avoided without the sacrifice of right and just principles; but yet they sometimes seem neceieary to bring parties to a proprr estimate of themselves and their own importance. It is to be hoped that tbia will not be forgollen without affording some useful lessons to both bosses and men, in this and other branches of industry. The men have gone to work on the terms of their original demand?twenty shilling* a day?but have altered several of the rules of the trade, aa required by the bosses. It is believod that these alterations will be found to be mutually beneficial. Tfcf State CinaU.

[From the Official Bulletin of the Army ot the Restora tion of Liberty, April 30.] We here been unable, In consequence of some ditSoul ty in our printing office, to publlah in onr bulletin ell the document* relating to the exciting political movement* of the day; but in order to remedy thi* evil as far as Ues in our power, and to quiet the legitimate Impatience of the publio, we shall lay before it a narrative of all the facts that have transpired with regard to the badly di rected operations of General Santa Anna, his encamping in the plain* about this port, and hi* ridiculous and shameful retreat. In a former number we related all that had taken place since Santa Anna, with his praetorian cohorts, had pass ed the river Papogayo, at Coquillo, to the time of hi* raising the oamp which he had pitched in the vicinity of this city. We shall now add a few details, which the pres sure of circumstanoes prohibited our then giving, and we shall as briefly as possible, draw a parallel between the in famous acts perpetrated by the magistrate who so unwor thily a ways the destinies of this country, and the noble and magnanimous deeds of the General in Chief, Juan Alvarei. This will citable the country at large to decide which of the two ie the better calculated to bring peace and proeperily upon it. Gt neral Santa Anna and his troops, being continually harassed by the guerillas of the army devoted to the res oration of liberty, while on their way from the Papo gayo to this port, without bayng been able to defeat their foe In one single Instance, and finding that they were surrounded on all aides after they had reached these shores, had but one resource left, and that was to make one great effort, by risking all for all, to seek to take possession of the petty "oourtyand," which, ac cording to bim, was to yield to the sole preaenee of his "august person." But far from acting like a brave and honorable soldier, and making even a faint attack, wliioh would have soothed his pride, though shown his weak ness, lie was satisfied to sacrifice, on the mornir - of the 20th, the brigade of Costa Chica, keeping the rest of his army ready and prepared to escape with him to Mexico, and to continue there to worry and oppress his country anew. He was also satisfied to make a ridiculous de mand that the town should surrender within twelve hours, else the fort and suburbs would be strewn with corpses; but twenty-four hours after the expiration of the delay prescribed, he sent word to the consuls and merchants to place their affair* in such a position as that their interests might not snffer. At five in the afternoon on the 21st, a boat belonging to the blockading vessel made for the shore, and the Governor of this city ordered that the captain of the port, with two well manned boats, should go out to cap ture that of the enemy. After a pursuit of two miles, the latter did not succeed in overtaking the former, but it is positively known that the shots fired by ours told effectually, and that two officers and several men were wounded. General Panta Anna, on retiring, ordered that the two offlctra of our troops, whom he had captured at Coquillo, as stated before, should be sliot. And Hint same gene ral. who was invested with the supremo magistracy for the purpose of watching over and protecting the welfare, interest and happiness of all the inhabitants of tho re public, is now devastating and reducing to ashes and ruins all the villages and farms tliat he finds on his way. All the cottages surrounding this city, the whole village of Cruces, that ef Vcnta, Cacahuatepee, Itesaroyes, and as many others as were lu bi* path, he lias burned to the ground, and numberless families whom a fear of the war bad driven to the mountains, will look in vain, on their return, for a wretched shed to slrelterHhem, or a roof to protect tbcm from the Inclemency of the rainy season, which is even now beginning to set in. In what respect, we would ask, is their manner of making war at all different from that prevailing among the barbarous tribes tbat vex our fron'iersl Tho latter murder the innocent man In cold blood; Gen. Santa Anna, who cannot in any way or by any subterfuge cover his crime with trie mantle of law. wreaks his ven geance on two unhappy officers; a vengeance the more shameful and disgraceful because he shed the blood of the weak w hlle at that very moment ho was living from an army in froDt ol bim, because he believed it to bo strong. The ravages that we spoke of rob the unfortunates who cannot resist thorn, plunder their fields and barn their abodes. General Santa Anna has seized every kind of cattle for tlio maintenance of his troops, without paying tho owners one farthing for the same; he his laid waste all that lay before him, and his track is marked by ruin and destruction. * Is this, then, the course tbat was to be expected of a man of such a high reputation and such lofty preten sions, in this century of progress and enlightenment? Is it the voice of passion or party spirit that makes us curse these heinous acts, or is it not rather reason and iubtice that cry aloud against the unfaithful steward that has become a vandal? But if the invasion has cost this ambitious man many sacrifices, his retreat is not less painful snd sad to con template. At every stop he leaves behind him worn out men who cannot follow liim, otheri dispersed here an l there, manv dead and many prisoners. Generals Juan Alvarec and Tbmas Moreno, who have sqAout in pursuit of him. harass him without cessation; ana granting that he should reach the capital of the Stale, it must be tit the expense of half hi* force*. On the d*y following the retreat of the troops a small merchant vessel, the I'anchita by name, was descried entering the harbor; tho schooner Warrior (Guerrero) was leaving at the same moment, hailed her and warned her not to proceed any farther, as the port was blockad ed; heedless of this and of the endeavors of th bark Caroline, that sought to stop her headway, she forced the blockade and eutered the port, notwithstanding the many shots that were fired at her. It wai doubtless written that on every occasion General Santa Anna should be foiM We haTe given a brief sketch of what his taken place Bp to thlx.dny (the "i>th;) It remains now for n* to com pi'ie the acit or Ihe liberating nriuy and ber chief with ilioea of (lie tyrant aud his satellites. Tha commander of Mescals. Mr. I'R'ntine Vil'alva, Vanquished the enemy twice at Paso del Klo, the latter losing many men, killed, wounded, and prisoners; and the latter having been respected as prisoners of wsr, his Excellency the General in Chierof our army, whom our foes depict as s haughty barbarian, ordered that Are officers and thirty-three men should lie set at liberty. In the action tliat took place on the 2tfth a considers bio number of prisoners of all classes, was taken, and up to this time there is no instance of any one of them having been ahot or even mn '.treated in an7wa.tr. These facts of themselves speak loudly, and require" no commenta ries.

Wo might cite many things In favor of the former, but will simply mention ono circumstance that speaks louder than any praise thit we could bestow. When, three months since, onr cove-nm nt sent to examine into the cemfition of the fortress of .-'.in I iego, the latter was actually one ?<? of ruins, without 1 ny of the nssesssry storc? or muniti ona of war, nod it n it's estimated that *70,000 would be required for in oisjensable repairs. 0 corral Fanla Anna, ?'epou'ing uj on this, proceeded In person to take pos-oMion of it, and wa?obl)god to raise the siege and to retreat wl h (lis grnee, 1he fort being amply supplied with everything necessary for a protracted defence. One month hid suf ficed for this active and laborious chieftain to do all this; nor were the troops nnder his command at nil un worthy of their loader. e ? ? ? Corollary?

The nation can judge for itself, from a ptam and briof statement of the facta as they have occurred. kn the little action that took place at I'nnto del f o qnillo. on the lilth inst , tw > ?f our men, Captain .lose Miguel Yndart and Captala Nieanor Vargas, ware taken prisoners. After this skirmish the army of the enemy .?ont'nnod their march to this port, and "with it the pri-onc.s above mentioned. Onthelfith, General Santa tuns at th? head of his troops, took up his position st a place a little above the northerly side of the city, and known as FereMon. On the 2#tb, at three in the morolny-, he sent a co! lmn, composed of three hnndred men, to attack the fortress, lids "coinmn proceeded ae far as the outworks of the fort; and. notwithstanding the energy and determina tion of their attack, after four hours' fighting they were completely routed, with a loss of fifty men killed and wounded, and n great number of prisoners. In the evening of the same day. Gen. Manuel Cespedes 'CM-nted hire sell with a flag of truce on the |?rt of hia ? cander : and, having been admitted by the Governor lie town, he sought to present the communication h he carried, and which ws- to the effect that nn .U* forlrtss were wrendertj itkin twelre hours, it would to taken <7 "tono. The Governor answered that he oould not anal would net receive such a communi cation, nor Listen to any overtures of adjustment, with out previous permission of the General-in-Chief ; that he wou id apprise the latter at all, hut that, meanwhile, hos tilities should remain open, and Gen. Santa Anna would be ut liberty to attack the fort at hie pleasure, while the latter ahould defend itself as wetl at it was able. On bcarina this answer, the envoy aeked permission t? re turn the next day, to learn what were the instructions received. To this the Governor seceded, repeating tlat he desired It to to understood that there was no cessa tion of hostilities. In effeot, nt four in the evening of the next day, Gen. Cespedes again presented himself : and, aa be only found a confirmation of the declarations of the day previous, he begged, in the us mi of his command er, that the firing should be suspended until eix o'olock of the next day, at whleh hour an answer eras ex pected from his Excellency General Alrmres to an of ficial note that had been addressed to him. Mr. Comon fort stated that he could only give his consent as long aa the troops of the enemy should not make any movement whatever, for otherwise he eould not do otherwise than repulse them. Upon this the confer*noe ended, and Mr. Cespedes left with a second communication, which was not accepted. The 22d and 28d passed without any oc currence worthy of mention; the fortress awaited the ? remised attack, while General Santa Anna remained in Is camp, his troops deserting in large numbers. On the 24th he removed to a spot some distance further off. On the 25th he again removed still further nway. Our gue rillas, meanwhile, were harassing him, till finally, at early dawn on the 20th, he abandoned his position, and fled like a coward, crowning this act with one of those infamous deeds which excite both pain and indignation. Disheartened nt his want of auoocss, too cowardly and impotent to direct his forces against an enemy anxious (o meet him and scorning his haughty threat, General Santa Anna rented his aDger upon the defenceless priso ners of Coqnillo, who could offer no resistance. He caused them to be shot, and then hung on palm trees. This aot alone would suffice to cover with shame ami dishonor the memory of Gen Santa Anna. He flies at tho sight of the enemy, and executes two unhappy, defence less men. Here is tho man who aspires to a crown! Mexicans! the idea of establishing a throne among us must always be ridiculous; but if we could ever consent to bend the knee before a monarch, he must indeed be more generous, more worthy, more noble, and leas bass than General b'anta Anna, who would occupy the throne. We should nr ver question the propriety of this Gene ral's couisea if in the natural order of things he had applied all the rigor of the law to men deserving of pun ishment. liad General Santa Anna caused Yndart and Vargas to be slint immediately on being seized with arms in their hands, this might perhaps have been deemed aa act showing an energy not unwortby tho depositary of a lofty trust; but to allow so long a period of time to elapse?to allow his prisoners to Indulge the hope that their lives would lie spared?to demand a surrender with peremptory threats, und then, instesd of complying with his word, merely because he Is flred at here and there by a guerilla?lie, the President of a republic, to remove his camp, and in his flight to exeeute his prisoners, and leave their bodies hanging on the trees as If they were highway, robbers, this is an act the blackest, the vilesh and the most unworthy a man occupying the highest post in the republic, llow does this seem when com pared wlththe course followed by the Governor of the fortress? How does this look when compared with the treatment of the prisoners of the twen tieth, who, even among the ranks of the soldiers, were ro gu rded with all the consideration whioh is due a prisoner of war?a man in misfortune!1 ? ? ? These corpses cry olottrt to tho world?" Tills Is Gen eral Kanta Anna; he (lion like a coward, and slays like a murderer."

AHHULAB ECLEP8X OF 1864. OtwiiTiitlcMU from Uu Top ok* lUf Hern Id Building*. In accordance with the announcement (if the astro nomical world, the annular eolipse of the sun took place yesterday. For several days before the predicted time, It was looked forward to with no ordinary degree of can oeKy, and, as might be expected, every one wliiyoonld ?pare an hear from the urgent demands of businetd de voted it to an inspection of the aan. In fact, there ap peared to be a general cessation of all kinds of work in the city, and every one who had eyes made the best u ve of them, with the aid of smoked glaas. There was ag extraordinary demand for this particular article, and where it was scarce, the supply was increased from win dows broken expressly for the purpoee. On nearly every corner might be seen a crowd of wondering spectators speculating on the causes of tha eclipse, or listening to the scientific explanations of some would-be as tronomer. It was, or onght to b* at least, a great day for the men with the telescopes, those walk observatories who arc continually offering to an unappreciative public a view of the heavenly bodies for the small charge of alx cents. They were out in full force, and appeared to be doing a heavy business, if the large numbers that were gathered around them might'l>e taken as a fair indication. It is a wonder that some shrewd, (peculating optician did not take advantage of the occasion to get ap, at a cheap rate, prepared glass for the purpose. An enterprise of this kind, if properly carried out, would have realized a handsome sum for the inventor, as thousands would, hare provided themselves with surli an assistant. However, as it was, the old plan of cutoked glass was resorted to by those who wore not i o fortunate as to possess the necessary instruments tor a more scientific observation of the eclipse. For at least a quarter of on hour before the api>ointed time, thousands of impatient observers had clambered to tho tops of houses to waioh the first approaches of tho moon upon the sun's disc ; and by the timo the lunar shadow entered upon it, the roofs were as populous as the streets with spectators. The Astor Honse, the Ctty Hall, the Irving House, and nearly every public building in the city that afforded a fair view of the eclipse, was occupied in the same man ner. Taking our position on the roof of the Hkiuijj buildipg, which afforded as fine a prospect as any other in the city, we prepared ourselves to gire a full report of the proceedings of our two great luminaries. Hot a cloud obscured the sky, and the sun appeared to sbine with tnoro than his usual resplendence. A light breeze served to moderate the heat, and rendered the day par ticularly favorable for observation. At fifteen minutes past four the first indication which we had that the eclipho had commenced was the appear ance of a slight Index tat ion on the southern part of the sun's disc, which gradually advanced till about ten minutes sfter, when?to use the graphic expression of a spectator?it looked like a small bite out of a very plump apple. At thia timo there did not appear to lie any change cither in the intensity of the solar heat or light, but wo could distinctly perceive an illuminated band bordering the moon's disc, somewhat like the halo which we ob serve in the pictures of saints. At a quarter to five, half an hour after the commence ment of the eclipse, about a third of the sun's di-c was obscured by the lunar shadow, and a slight diminution in the solar was perceptible. The thermometer then stood at 80 in the sun. exhibiting as yet no variation. At five o'clock, one-half of the sun's disc was covered, and the tliermomrter .auk to 81, showing a'varialion of four degree* in fifteen minutes. Clouds began to gather at the cast, and the horizon began to assume an ap pearance like that which to observe as twilight up | proache*. At twelve minutes past five tli? thermometer indicated 78 degree*, and the eclipse could bo seen with the naked eye, though the light of the sun was still too brilliant to allow the spectator to look at it long with impunity. At twenty five minutes post five the thermometer had fallen one degree, and at linlf past five the sun presented the following appearance, abont eleven digits of its disc beingyovercd hy the moon. This was its appearance ut its greatest obscuration at this city, Washington, Baltimore, New riaTen, Hartford, Spring field, and Worcester, and other oitics where the magnitude of the eclipse was from about ten to eleven digits on the northern limb of the sun. Hie color of the sky, particularly near the horixon, was of an unna tural hoc, resembling a bluish green, and Lhe faces of persons a few feet from us assumed a ghastly paleness This did not last OTer five minutes, however. At twenty-five minutes to sit the shadow of tli" moon spjenred to be slowly rising from the southern limb of the snn, like a dark enrtaln. forming a crescent on that portion of its disc* The thermometer stood at 78, and from this time till a quarter to six it went down two degrees. It now began to grow lighter, and at the minutes to six the thermometer stood st 78 again. At six o'clock a little more than one half the auuN disc was visible, and the the urometer indicated 70. Slowly the shadow Ifft'-1 from the sun. and at 37 minutes past six it had entirely di-approred, the eclipse having lasted 2 hours, 22 minutes and 40 seconds. The ther mometer at this time was at 70; but the change in this instance was owing to the approa-h of evening The following tables present s comparison of this eclipse with that whi'-li took p! >ce.b?pt. 1*. 1838, whioh wa annular in this i ity ? lt.'ia. 1834.
