Binned, J. T. ROLUN8, WM. 3 T18DALE, COKVfLlUS MAT3EW8. At the hour Darned for the ooening of the meeting, ?here were probably some alxty persons aeatterad |hrough the ball, looktng exceedirgly grave and solemn, f and bye, however, when tte proceedings came to be itereating. the attendance wax considerably augmented; it the bulk of the audience kept standing at the en ce doors, and the seats were only here and there ob pied. There was, too, an evident distinction between ? appearance of the persons who were seated, as if en gaged in an important affair and that of thsae who so iwded about the entrance. The lormer appeared to be Edd, solid, respectable members of society ; while many the latter wore rather an air of general loaferishness ; sh b'boys, in fact, as are wont to make their appear ce at Tammany Hall when Captain Rynders or John Bbehrane deem their attendance desirable. The meeting was called to order at a quarter past 8 |>'clock by Mr. Burro wes, who nominated, as chairman, r. John T. Rollins. The nomination wm agreed to, and Mr. Rollins took te chair. Mr. W B. Warriner read the following list of names |>f g?ntlemen proposed as Vice Presidents of the meeting, rho were unanimously elected:? L. L. Johnson, Isaac M. Phyfe, J. H. Valentine, T. Bourne, T. A Fowler, K. F. Corey, J. Wilcox, G. A. Barney, J. P Williams, Rubt. 4argeant. Henry B. Bolster, A. Ruthford, L. C Stiles, C. 7.. Pond, H. C. Boyd. Moses Drury, Prof. S. F. B. Morse, W. 4 Tisdsle, H. Franklin, Daniel H. Burdett. Col. P. B Postley, Messrs John H. Burleson and Rufus J. Bell were tominated and appointed as Secretaries. Mr. BuauaoN then read ths following call of the seating : ? Ths citizens of New York are reipeotfully invited to at tend a public meeting to be held at Stuyvesant Institute. ?Broadway , opposite Bond street, at 8 o'olook this (Hon lay) svenini, June 4th, to make, in a liberal and compre ?pure ipirit, an open declaration of National Amerioan nnciplee. Signed : J. T. ROLLINS, WIi U\M S. T1SDALK, Cornelius Matthews. The Chairman then rose and said: ? The purpose of the meeting has be?n made known to ^ou by tne call which has just been read by the Secreta ry We are not here in th? character of politicians, to ake and arrange machinery and cacuses. We appear ?ar as Amsrlcans, and it is oar wish to present to yon few truths which we think concern your interests as ?American citizens. We believe that tnere are Amerioan uthe and American principles which are worth while it this time to raise before the public; and we have ^adopted this simple, old fashioned anl republl way of action We have called the meu _ "g in the spirit of conoiliation and fail dealing. |We think it right that the world should know what Americans, are atolng at; and, when urged, there ill be found, I am quite cerUin, nothing wrong, but rery thing encouraging, in the views we have to present, hat you may be the more fully impressed with this, ke declaration of our faith, of American principles, will a now read to you by Mr. Cornelius Mathews, who has ad the dnty of its preparation in charge. Mr. Mathiwr accordingly read a document of great ingth, purporting to be a declaration of National Amari u> principles; but, as it appears to us to bs hardly en tied to be regarded as the embodiment of the views of ?the American party, but rather an essay of a gentleman ^addicted to literature, we do not consider its publication iy us at all necessary. It sounds bogus ; and though It raa alter ward* adopted br the meeting, still it has not ;be ring of the true metal about it We give, however i few extracts from It, whlcn w?re the subject of subse quent discussion : ? **??*??

There is a sentiment in the oora which la called philanthropy ; but he ? . . . ? himself a little of that aelflahneaa closer to his own country than ??y other country, and to his own eonntrymen ? the natives of ether lands.

What U this m*tt?r of the tortif a vote? Why somebody wioti to got oOaa, and he goea ao'l buya up tbe foreign vote, and this la the only antagonistic principle which their antagonists daio to a?ow lie had ao objactioa to foreigners coming to these ahorea but be did not understand why tbey should tnaae them voters and elect thorn to office wbenevt r they csme . (Apprise.) The Freoeb peopli failed to uphold republiciniatn ; it was because they were not the defendant* o' Pilgrim Fathers, and did ?rt understand tbe American sentiment. But woen fo reigners ccme to our shores we mate them officials ? governors and pc)lrem>n; and every one knows whit t- rants tbey become wben they hold the rod of office. Ti e declaration read >o night excludes sectionalism of all kinds from tli ? platform It has left slavery where tbe constitution left it. It hae left religion where the constitution left it. We have no objection to any man's religion. (Applause.) Let religionists have their own way: leave them where the constitution left thtfm. These were the seat. m-nts of Jefferson. Thoy are the sentiments we pro'ets to night l^e&re every man 'o his religion, but keeo religion out of in terference with politics Be believed in obedience to lawa, and be tbougbt tbat the great American institutions were dearer to them than anything elae. 1 et American institutions be destroyed, aad where will liberty find place for the sole of its foot? There it too much at stake in onr American institutions to allaw S,i 00.000 of the best, of tbe whitest, to oast it away. I think tbat white men are aa sond aa blaok. When 1 aay we mu?t not imperil our institutions for the one, I also mean that wa should not imperil tbem for the other. We must be owaie, gentlemen. " K ernul vigilance," skid Jefferson, " is the price of liberty." (Loud ap plause. ) At the request of one of the audienoe the resolutions were again read. A gentleman to tie right of the chair asked whether it were in oider to move aa amendment to tbe address or resolutions? Tbe Chair replied tbat it was in order to mare to amend the resolutions . The quentiooer desired simply to remark tbat the reso lutions did not eeem to bare any deflniteness. He wish ed to notice one portion of the address in regard ta leav ing slavery (hiuses) where the constitutioa had Isft it. Be would move tbat tbat aide issue be stricken out. (At tbe mention of the word slavery there was an 1 us tan taneous manilestation of disgust, it was received with a storm of liiaies and more than one voice suggested that tbe offender be immediately put out.) After some time order was restored, and he continued to support bis motion. One of his reasons was tbat the constitu tion left slavery nowhere, and has not sactloaed It at all. Be therefore moved tbat that portion of the ad dress te stricken out. (Storm of hisses. ) Another gentleman to the left of tbe Chair spoke to the motion. He did not wish freedom of spaec^ to be suppressed, and be did not know of any question which agitated tbe public mind more than the question of slavery. The call of tbe meeting was to debate on mat teifl of public ccncern; and according to the call of the meeting that question was as much a matter for dissua sirn as any o'her. He therefore hoped tbat the gentle man would withdraw his motion, or else that it be voted down. The question was taken on the adoption of the motion to amend, and it was rejected, amid great uproar, by an almost unanimous vote . (Loud applause, clapping of bands, whistling and cheering for Sam.) Another amendment was offered, in the shape of an additional resolution, by Mr. S. Tor3*r, to wit: ? That each native born American is entitled to all the rights of any one native American. The reading of this enigmatical proposition waa re ceived with shouts of laughter and der stun, and loud crle* of "Lay it on tbe table," ??Question? question," "Lay it under the table," &c. Mr. Matuewh asked for an explanation of its meaning. (Reiterated shouts of "Lav it on the table.") A Voice ? "No gag lawa." Another Voick ? The motion Is to lay it on the table, and that motion is not debateable Ibis exhibition of tbe knowledge of parliamentary laws was received with laughter and applause. Mr. Tocsby, the mover, thought it was as olain as it could he. The idea is that any rights belonging to one individual citiien belong to another citizen. A Voice ? 'Black or white?" (Laughter.and general excitement.) Mr. Xoi'fkY ventured to intimate further that the re solution was quite broad, and there was no dodging it. Ha wanted that one ettizen should be (Interruption, and a repetition of the question "Black or white?" mingled with hisses, groans, cries of "He's an abolition ist," "Lay it on tbe table," &o., &c. In the midst of the uproar and fun a gentleman in spectacles on the opposite aide of the house ventured to address the chair? The Chaikxax ? The question is not debateable. (Cheers and applause ) The question was taken, and the amendment was laid on the table, with but a few feebly expreaaed negative*. The question was then taken on the adaption of the original resolutions, aad they were adopted a'most una nimously. The Chairman said there was some misunderstanding as to the ooject of this meeting. Various questions, he oontinued, had arisen? rarlous organisations. Orders, chapters, and so forth, had been formed, but tbey dis agreed on a few matters. Our object is rather to har monize than to carry on tbls warfare? to make our prin ciplts known to those who do, and to those nho d) not, belorg to any American organization. We have her* maiked out a straight course for ourselves I am sorry to ray that we have had side issues, by which we have been going aad coming here and there, and we now wish to mark out the plain, straightforward American course that Americans should pursue. I believe? and we all here, as 1 imagine, believe, that when Americans are in office, and when Americans are in our city and 8tate le gislatures, and in our National Congress? when Ameri cans are there ? not such as seme who have led political parties, not Americans merely by birth, but Americans in heart ? we shall be able to trust these side iasuea, these vexel questions, to their decision ; and let each portion of the country dispose of, and act upon, these questions as they see best. We, as Americans, going for the whole nation, have marked out the broad Pplatform, that Americana ruia America, and we want no other. (Loud applause. ) Mr. Mathews then moved that the meeting do adjourn, with nine cheers for the first full-length view they had of "bam." (Loud cries of No! no! Aye, aye. Ques tion, question? and terrlole ooaimotlon.) An excited gentleman on tbe platform hoped there would be no gagging practised here to night. One per son had had It all to himself, and otherx who wished to expresa thoir sentiments should not be thus shut off. He hoped the motion would be withdrawn. (Applause and continued disturbance, one bearded gentleman making pantomimic efforta to procure a hearing.) Mr. Mathkws said that if any gentleman wanted to diacuss side issues, he hoped he would hire a room at a moderate cost, and invite thsm to attend. (Laughter loud uproar? cries of question? the gentleman having something to saj, not being able to aay it. ) The question was put, and.the motion t ? adjourn was not adopted. (Applauae, clapping of hands, whistling, and other pleasant manifestations.) Ihe bearded gentleman at length got a momentary op portunity to make himself heard. He oame here to night as an Amerioan citizen, aad thought that freedom of speech and liberty of tbe press, were among the dearest and moet cherished rights they had. (Cries of "so tbey are.") Well, then, said he, are you afraid or ashamed to allow discussion? (Roars of "Not at all." "You're a free (toiler," "put him out ? there is no gag ging, "fcc., 4c.) He felt perfectly safe; he waa in a meet ing of American cittsena, and was net afraid to come here and express his aentimenta. He came, aa he thought, to deliberate on great American principles; not to give his assent to any measures that were cut and dried be fore hand. (Laughter.) They might tblnk that by the resolution about slavery. ( Another tempest of hisses drowned tbe voice of tbe bearded gentleman, and an indivi dual behind b'ni, of the genue "rowdy" forcibly remon str a ted with him upon his folly, by attempting to push hi u down to his seat. The uproar and confuaion now reached its grand climsx, snd the offending individual was la danger of being summarily aad unpleasantly dealt with, when Mr. Mathews, with the air of one throwing oil upon th? troubled waters, asked tbe very pertinent question. "Are we Ameiieans?" and was appropriately answered, br half a dozen voices, "No.") In the midst of this scene of disorder, the Chair again put tBe question on the motion to adjourn, and declared it carried, though oa some principle which could hardly be recognized in parliamentary usage. The assemblage then amused iteel r for some ten mi nutes more la cheering for "Sam," and groaning for Archbishop Hughes, Seward, Wilson, Sumner, and abo litionism generally. The Forrest Divorce Com.

There are, of all there classes, civil and fair men, and theee (eel aggrieved that snch complaint* should so justly be made public against them a* a class. Their only remedy is to favor the adoption of strict regulations, and aid ia the enforcement of them, so that their business may bo rid of the ruffian* and thieves who bring shame upon it and upon those who pursue the avc cation. Other estes of recent annoy anoe and extortion have come to light; but it is scarcely neeessary to detail outrageous circum stances which are of daily occurrence.

AMMtomy of Bum I Pnntmnl. This opera was re presented last night at the Academy, with Mad da La Graaf*, 8t|oori Mirate, Morelii, and Ma rio i hi the principal parti. The last performance of the "Pniitani1' m New York ?u by Grlsi, Mario, Baliail and Buaini. Of cowrae, in that great performaaoe, the featnte of the niffht waa the Artaio of Stgnor Mario. The tencr part ia fnll of delicious canlabiU pliraaet, and Maria i? without a rival in- the execution of auoh muric. It would te unfair to criticise the performance of la?t night by companion, because 81 1 nor Mirato betra no rese aaSnnce in any respect to Mario, but at some of bia friend* have injudiciously set him on a loyal with that artist, the performance of lent night did provoke odious comparisons. The opera it so well known, and has been ao often reviewed in that a columns, that no further iteration of a twice told tale will be required. It la full of liellinl's graceful melodise and pleasut combinations. It has mare rigor than any other of the composer's works, and is, there fr?e, quite popular with our Opera goers. In some res pects the performance of la*t night wa-t the best over given hero (except when Mario aung Arturo), and quite worth/ of the praise bestowed upon it by a very encel lent house? very much fuller than any U?t week. Mme. de La> Grange's Elvira is her greatest sucoeaa yet, both in acting and tinging. In the charming polacca, See t Virgin vtziorit, she vzas quite equal in biillianay of execution to Seatag, who made thia one of her greateit points. In the ma3 soene her acting wairaaliy good, s'./l her Binding. of the cabaletta, vim <liteUa) was ao excellent that she was three times i r called <o receive the spplauso of the house. The whole of the music of this scene was executed with sur pi ising luency and great effect. Bellini suits Mae. do la Grange much better than Verdi, and she afpaared ti aet and sing last night con amors. Elgnor Mirate made a favorable imp session on the hour* by his Brit notes in A tc. V Cora, and the fol lowing quartette wis very well done. Mirate'a voice ia net aj m pathetic enough to make him. great ia Arturo, and his execution has net the artistic finish of Mtrio; but his perfcrmance was still very Rood. He is probably tie best Arturo we have ever had, excopt Mario. Signozi Marini and Morels were vo *y fine as Giorgio and Eiocariio. their scene in the second act waa well worked up, Marini sang atd acted with more aplrit than bo has heretofore during this engagement, and Morelli's rich nsd sonorous valce gave a lenawed effect to the familiar Suari la tromba, which inap>rating ana patrio tic doat wat encore 1, as usual, and with charming oon eistcacy sung by two foritans of the seventeenth cen tury. waving the French tri color of the eighteenth. The orchestra was very good geaerally, though a little too noley at the close of the finale of the first act. The chorus has many good voices, but the owners of them seem to want confidence. The chorus mister must tell them to '-sing out." "Puiitanl" is the greatest hit of this company, and we presume that it will be given again on Wednesday. Metropolitan Tiiiutrk. ? Tna entertainments at th? Metropolitan this evening offer more than usual nt tracl ion. After the operatic ballet of "Masaniello," Mr. Hackett will play his popular character of Mons. Mallet, in which he has achieved such great and well merited success. We understand that the entertainments of this week will, in all probability, be the last for many years in which the public will have an oppcrtnnlty of seeing Mr. Haokett, it being bis intention to withdraw himself nltogtber from the stage for an indefinite period.

Alderman Krlly, of the Fourteenth ward, asked the Chairman pro Um. (Aldetman Voorbia) if he would en tertain such a paper as that now lead'/ The Chairman said certainly. Alotiman Kelly appealed from the decision of tbe Cbair. The psprr w?s disrespectful to the Mayor and derogatory to this Bosrd Alderman Ely said tb? Chairman was right in enter taining the paper. , Aldtiman Kully repudiated the document ai irrele vant to the business of this Board Alderman I.ord said that the resolution wm couched In such a form that It should not be entertained. The 0' Keefe family appeared to be a very large family, and bo donbt respectable, and he thought the papw ought cot to be entertained, because of the Improper manner In which the Major of the city bas bean alluded to in it. The Chair ruled that the document was properly be fore the Board, the reading having been twice called for, and it waa for the Board now either to reseive or reject it Alderman Brjggs supported the resolution, and thought that Mrs. O'Keefe la perfectly competent to be matron of a station hoare, and he did not see why the Mayor should not appoint her. Aldtiman Brown thought it disrespectful to the May or, and be moved that tbe member who presentel the resolution have leave to withdraw it. The renolution was again read. Alderman Ely thought the language of the latter por tion indecorous and improper, and be was opposed to Ita tdoptico. He thewfor? moved that it be referred to the Special Police Committee. Alderman Hkrriok trusted that an Indioation would be given by this Board that such kind of traab would not be tclerated by the members of the Common Coun cil of New York. It is an Indignity attempted to be of fered by the mover of the resolution, and an effort to make this Board the medium of such indignity. Alderman Briggb, though he did not see that any in dignity waa offered to the Mayor, would adopt tbe sug geaton of tlie Alderman of the First Ward (Brown) and would withdraw the resolution. _ . . . Alderman Howard wanted this Board to understand that be desired to know tbe sense of this Board on the subject, notwithstanding the Know Kotbing decision of the AlCerman of the Ninth ward, (the Chairman pro Um. ) to entertain such a paper. Alderman Voobhis (Chairman pro tern.) cal.ed Alder man Howard to order, and told him to use respectful language. He (Alderman V.) did not belong to any ,UAWeiman Howard? I have heard the Alderman of the Ninth ward (Voorhis) charged with being a member of that secret booy, and he never yet denied it. Alder^ man Howard defended Mr. O'Keefe, and said that it bad been arranged that Alderman Voorbia should take the chair ftr the purpose c? deciding cn the paper, and he pronounced the man who presented that paper a coward becauae be knew the parties would have no pewer to re ply or delend themselves in any way. Alderman Briggs? Try him. Alderman Howard (emphatically)? I pronounce bim a coward, and I think he would be more Btted to take tbe pest of matron, which la ridicule he calls upon the Mayor tosppotnt Mrs. O'Keefe to. He (Alderman H.) did not feel it necessary to defend tbe Mayor. He was a man of more capacity and more Intellect than any ten of this body. As tor David O'Keefe himself, if be was a member of this Board, Alderman Briggs dare not open his mouth against b.m, and as it Is I think he wtll call him to account 'or it Akerman Howard then said that no one aopyoeetf that Alderman Briggs drew up the prtsmble and reeolutlons, but it was well known that tliey were prepared in secret conclave. AKermsn Briggs said that It was unnecessary to reply to the oba?rvatioos of the Alderman of tbe Bixtb ward. Tbe locality that sent him to this Board sufficiently indicated bis character, and that bis name was as datk as the darktst night we ever bad. He came from an unenlightened diitrict, and ke was unlveraally known as a public P*fP?r. ... (Here Alderman Howard seized an ink bottle, and fluni It at the head of Alderman Briggs, who "dodged ' and avoided tbe missile, which closely graied his peri cranium.) , Alderman Briggs proceeded.
