The Sews. 1%ere were no signs of the Cambria at Halifax it ten o'clock last evening. She is now in her thirteenth' day out from Liverpool. The Washing ton, from Southampton, 20th ult, is in her sixteenth fey. Both branches of Congress were occupied yester fey in the consideration of private bills, and nothing mt general interest transpired. Both houses ad journed till Monday. Thus ends the nineteenth week of the session. The Board of Aldermen was in session last even tag. A communication was received from the Mayor nrging a speedy legal organization of the Board of Supervisors. With reference to the presi dency of the Board, the Mayor says he has no desire for the office, and that his name must not be used in connection with it. The subject was referred to Alderman Ely. chairman of the Supervisors, with a view to his calling a meeting of the Board. The Board of Councilmen last evening passed the new ordinance relative to contracts for cleaning the ?treets, the general provisions of which may be fcmpd in our report of the proceedings of the Board. By the arrival of the brig Addy Swift, Capt. Fos ter, from Maracaibo March 14, we have the follow ing:?On the 13th ult., Oeo. Washington Johnson, an American merchant at Maracaibo, and for many years a resident of that place, was drowned while dossing the harbor. He leaves no relatives at Ma vicaibo, but it is supposed he has a brother in Philadelphia. Our correspondent at flnayama, (Porto Rico,) writing on the loth ult., states that the cholera had wery much diminished, and from manv of the towns attacked had entirely disappeared. Sugar had been somewhat dull, and planters more desirous of realis ing at lower rates than previously reported: bat encouraging accounts of the trade from the Lnited Spates imparted more firmness in holders, and 15 a 96 50 was asked, with an rpwaid tendency in prices. Molaw-es was in very active demand at 20c. a 22c.; coffee, >11 75 a >12; tloor scarce, but ruled at $22 a $24 per barrel; other Amcricaa produce in ample supply. The Artisan Building, located in the rear of Chestnut and Fourth streets, Philadelphia, was totally destroyed by fire on Thursday night. The amount of loss is estimated at two hundred thou sand dollars. Among the articles consumed were the lithographs for Com. Perry s work on tbe ?Japan expedition. The sales of cotton yesterday reached about 25,000 bales, including part in transitu. The mar ket was firm , and closed at about ;C. advance. Mid dling uplands were at about 10$c., 1 lorida and Mobile do 103c. a 10*c. and New Orleans and Texas at 11c. Flour was dull, and sales moderate, v> thout change of moment in quotations. M heat was firm for prime milling lots: good Tennessee red sold at $1 70, and fair Southern white at $1 85 a $1 ?7L Corn ranged front f.4c. a b6c. for sound to prime shipping lots ot white and yellow. Pork sold at ?16 37J a *lfi 43* for mess. Sngare were in fair de mand at steady prices, with sales of about 700 hhds. Coffee was steady; 1,000 mats Java brought 14 jc. There was rather more offering for English ports, though at rattier easier rates, drain to Ijvcrpoo! was at 5d. a 6d. in bulk and bigs, bacon at 25s., cheese at 30?., and flour at Is. I'd. Thkmfmwm-s Dkmckatic Victor t.-?If w> ma/ believe the Atln and Aryw there never was such a tremendous victory gained by the democracy, a * the victory achieved in the late election*-by twenty-two votes, of Dr. Quacken bufeh. the democratic candidate for Mayor of Albany. Mr. I'erry, it appear-, was supported by the most formidable and heterogeneous combination of materials ever rallying upon aay one man since the election of Gen. Harri iwa. Mr. Perry, we are told, was the Know Nothing candidate for Mayor, the Gennea lager bier candidate, the intractable hard shell democratic candidate, and a scrt of half-and Jwlf N/ookk-Woiishutkii and temperance can didate, and a very popular man to boot. Yet be was beaten by the "unterrificd democracy" by twenty-two votes. Give, then, the Albany democracy and Pr. Quackenbush the banner. Hb H is 'Em Thkkjo.?It is said that Commo dore Vanderbilt despairs of getting any help from Marcy for the Transit Company against Gen. Walker. The written declaration of Mr. Joseph L. White, of Pecember last, in the Northern Eight controversy?that "we [the company] owe allegiance to it [Walker's gov ernment], and to it we must loot*, for the pro tection pledged in our charter'?seems to hive been remembered by Marcy and applied with peculiar unction in answer to the Commo dore's appeal for '?material aid. The Com modore, we suspect, bad iietler give it up with llarcy, and make the most of bis bargain with Walker. Tfc? K?m4 Llbmim In Um Unite* Btatea senate?A Mlly Imposture Kicked Oat. General Cuss, the other day, in the Senate, pr,-een?.td a tcemoriil par porting to be from the members ot the tree State Legislature of Kansas, (the Lane and Robinson concern,) in reference to the rights and throngs ot the free State party, tnd urging their sovereign right, under their Topeka arrangements, to an im mediate admission into the Union. The petition was referred to the Committee on Territories; but upon a motion to print, a discussion arose upon which the subject was brought up again on Thursday morning. The debate which fol lowed substantia] ly prhved the memorial at beet but a second-hand affair, very bnnglingly executed; whereupon, not only was the printe i ing refused, but the spurious paper, by an al most unanimous vote, was recalled from the committee, with a view of restoring it back, to | the safe keeping of Colonel Lane. This Colonel Lane, we believe, is one of the | United States Senators elect by this free State Kansas Legislature, and the members of this Legislature, by the last advices from the seat of war, were playing the interesting part of fugitives from justice. It further appears, ac cording to the testimony of Mr. Seward, "that he had seen the gentleman (Colonel Lane) who had handed the paper to Mr. Cass for presen tation," and that the Colonel had authorized our Senator to say, "that before he (the said Colonel Lane) left Kansas, he taw a paper?he did not say the identical paper in chirography -f(not the paper before the Senate:) bat he 'saw a memorial, of Which this is the substance and text, signed by all the members of the Kansa? provisional Legislature, and that this is a true copy." Rather cool, that?"a true copy" of the signatures of the fugitive legislators, which Senators, on the pre sentation, naturally enough were led to be lieve were in the handwriting respectively of the petitioners, each man signing for himself, as the law and the aniversal custom in all mat- , ters of business require. Senator Pugh said he had carefully examined the document, and that the " signatures are all in the same hand writing. and that there axe many erasures and interlineations." Mr. Pugh did not further say that these were alterations by the copyist upon his own responsibility, but that they were the inference is inevitable. What else conld the Senate do with such a silly and barefaced imposture than to kick it out of doors? Pily they could proceed no further. A few more "free State" experiments of this description, however, will open the eyes of many of our deluded people of the North to the desperate character of the lead ers in this "free State'" business. Very likely the neat act in this miserable farce of theirs will be their arrest and trial as disturbers of the public peace and conspirators against the laws of the country. And such are the Kan sas " pioneers of freedom," in behalf of whom Mr. Seward has been teaching us the doctrines of the federal constitution! What a precious brotherhood, to be sure, to be setting all the crazy abolition fanatics and old women of the North to howling over the wrongs done to "freedom in Kansas" by the atrocious "border ruffians!" What a set for the sympathies and rifles of Brother Beecher's church, and of Pro fessor Silliman and Yale College! Verily, the fool-killer h&6 a vast amount of unfinished bu einess on his books. Increase of Postai, Facilities.?Under this head will be found a communication complain ing of the retention at the general Post Office, of letters addressed to the Broadway Office and sustaining in general terms, the principle of outside enterprise being permitted to do the work of the Department. So long as the heads of the latter turned a deaf car to the demands of the public for increased postal facilities within the boundaries of the city, we were disposed to leave to individuals the care of supplying the accommodation which they re fused to provide, But when we see the Post master taking steps in the right direction, aid preparing to assimilate the system of city ile livery to that of London?the most perfect in the world?we are bound frankly to express our opinion that it would be inconsistent wit a, and prejudicial to the efficiency of that sys tem. to permit private companies any longer to monopolise business that legitimately !>c longs to the Department. In addition to the large increase which has been made in the number of receiving boxes throughout th> city, ws understand that the Postmaster has provided four stations, or branch offices, in different districts, which will commence opera tions on the 1st of May. These offices will not only receive, but deliver letters directed to bj | kept there till called lor, and will thu.- j> o v Ide for the want of which our correspondent complains. With the multiplication of these facilities as fast as the arrangements of the Department will permit, and the demands of ! our population necessitate, our city delivery will soon be placed on as satisfactory a footing as that of London. Mr. Fowler deserves j credit for the exertions which he is making to l effect these changes. We trust that they will | not be confined to one locality, but will be ex tended to the whole of our postal arrange ments. Uniformity, as has been sucoes-Mly demonstrated by Rowland Ilill, is the or.lv 1 principle which can ensure economy ai.u ' efficiency In the administration of the Post (?Office Department. French Intervention in Havtt.?It apr.eara that the French government has jnst appointed Mr. Consul Dillon Consul-General at Port-eu Princc. This is the gentleman, it will i>e remembered, who made himself bo conspicuous at the Sandwich Islands, and afterwards at San Franchco, by farthering the designs of the French and aanoyag Americana At Sa.i Francisco he winked at the enlistment of men for the Mexican government, under an impres sion that he was thus chocking the expansion of the United States; but the authorities got hold of him, and he eventually loot his offlee, and was for some time under a cloud. Ills affair was settled by Mr. Mason at last, and another Consul sent to San Francisco. Now, it appears, Mr. Dillon is transferred to a higher sphere of dutiee at I'ort-au-Prince. One cannot help coupling the appointment of this violent anti-American to the important oflice he Ls to hold at Port-au Prince with the reported landing of twelve thousand French troops at Guadaioupe. Are the French going to take this hemisphere in hand, after all: "Virginia Six eh Looking Ur."?The"Virgt nia papers are delighted to learn that "Virgi nia Sixes are looking up." Very good; but meantime Virginia politics, all at rives and sevens, appear to be looking down. What are they alter in Old Virginia.' A Jcrt Trial in the Bocth.?We publish this morning an account? taken from the North Carolina Standard? of the trial of a free negro, named Woodlj, on a charge of aiding the escape of a slave. At the first trial Wool ly was found guilty, and sentenced to be hang ed; but bis counsel moved for a new trial, ob tained it, and persuaded the new jury to find a verdict ot acquittal. The evidence is said to have been, though not conclusive, circum stantially strong against the prisoner; as, in deed, appears from the verdict of the first jury. The second jury was composed of planters, owning, it is said, some fcur hundred slaves among tbem, and belonging to a county which has suffered severe losses of late from the es cape of negroes to the North. Yet, notwita standisg the prejudice existing against free ne groes- notwithstanding the feeliog aroused by the frequency of offences similar to that with which Woodly was charged?the jury construed the evidence mercifully, and acquitted the prisoner. The North Carolina paper very properly asks whether a t imiiar triumph of law over passion could take place in Massachusetts? It could not A jury could not be found in the latter State to decide in favor ot the slave owner, under any circumstances. The contrast is at the service of those theorists who are so constantly reasoning upon the social and mo ral deterioration produced by the institution of slavery. The Italia* Uiiou.?Negotiations are on foot for more epera, by a ponon of the Academy troupe, but not pro bably at the Academy, if the artiste would combine and give na the opera at flf y cento?the highest price thit ever cugbt to be cbergtd for admission to any entertain ment of a dramatic character?they might make ?ome moLey.

The Steamship Adriatic.?This nt jiha ultra of nwv J architecture wae yesterday taten in tuw by twj power'ul steam tugs, and brought down from the fort of Seventh street, E. R., to the balance floating dock, between Catherine and Market streets. Sne arrived at half past 2 P. M., and at live minu'es past 3 P. M., was placed on a centre within the dock. She was then taken oat ot water in less than two hours. The oesasion, in rega-d to the number oi spectators, was more like that of a ship being launched than like what might be expected from a vessel going into dock. It was estimated tbat over 2 010 persons were present?some to witness the operatise of raising so inmense a structure perpendicularly out of water, aad others to view it when in that situation and on an even keel. Among the latter was one, who, witn about fifty others, hai ascended a vessel's rigging, (some above the royal yard,) and who deciaied that as he had not seen the vessel until after she was launched, he would wait till dark, if necessary, for an opportunity to see her when out of wa'er. Although the lifting povcr of the dock was evidently far beyond the weight nu tained, yet its inner space was never before so com pletely filled. The guards of the vessel extended very nearly to the sides of the dock, while her prow projected twenty or twenty-five feet over the inner end. Ths stern was flush with the outer end of the dock, so that the necessary support was given to every toot of the keel, beride the slicing shocks under the floor, and shores against the sides. Mr. Collins and a number of his i?r scnal friends were p esent, and all were highly pica a d with the arrangements and operatic.ns lrom beginning to end.

Within n few weeks the future political destinies of the country, for Another Presidential term, may be placed in the bauds of a nominee of the Cincinnati Convention. Khali the vice of New York not be heard in the delibe rations which are to end in the designation of the candi date of the rational democratic party V It is known that the two divisions of tbe democracy of this State, bearing the names of bard shells and sett shells, have each ap pointed delegates to Cincinnati. But how is either set of these rival delegates to get admission to the floor of the Convention ? It is not to be presumed that the oonvantion will undertake to di cide which of the two sets represents the democracy of Xev York at present, so analogous in their professed opi nions and so nearly balanced in regard to the numbers they represent. What then is to be done ? Obviously one of two things?either to adult both sets to the deliberation* of the booy or to exclude both. To admit both would be to introduae a new dement of discord into the convention, and to nullify the inSnence of the .-toto by antagonistic efforts for ascendency. Now, we ask, is the great State of New York prepared thus to surrender the question as to who is to be the next President cf the United States, to the final de cision of an assembly of delegates wbers her voice can not be heard* We think not. New York, in herself, embodies commercial and financial Interacts of a much greater amount thgp any other State, which may be ef fect* d, favorably or unfavorably, by the action of the convention. But when her relations with the great South, And tbe equally great West, are considered, the total of her business and political interacts to be affected, for weal or for wee, by the doings of fee Cincinnati Con vention surpass calculation. They are, fe a word. ot equal in extent and identical with thaee of the whole country. Will New York consent to abdicate her share of in fluence in the direction of her own affairs, by leaving to others the detignation of the individual! who are to nre side at the helm of State for four years to comet Th?t cannot be. What, then, Is to be done to insure to the ^tate the right to be heard u the seleotion to be made, without creating new divisions and discords in tbe demo cratic parly of the State.' We think we can indicate a method which will conciliate all interests, leave all per sonal susceptibilities untouched, and probably reduce the entire conservative democracy ot the State to one har monious whole, in reference to Its action upon national polities (lending the coming Presidential campaign. Let the conservative national democracy of each Con gressional district be seasonably convoked by pnblic no tices in the papers, to meet at a proper time and plaoe to designate three or mere delegates to represent them at Cincinnati; delegates thus solocted from each Congres fcicnaJ district would be the frevtoest representatives of the interests and sentiments of the who'.e people. As rep rcaenttves of the entire conservative democracy ot the State there can hardly be a doubt that they would at onco be admitted in a oofly, in preference to those delegate.-; who proleis to represent only divisions of the party-? not in Disparagement of the personal or political standing of ibe hs'd sad soft dels gales, but only as a regular me thod of getting tbe great State of New York admitted to her proper position in fee decision of the vital question* In band. Probably many persons new representing hards and eofts would be found acting together as representa tives of Cor gross! onal districts. In regard to the candidates, we have only to say that ?be country, aa well as the parties Into which ft has been divided, has mi Tared too much by the obtrusion of unknown persons, untried capacities, and incapable avail ab'lity to give its support to any other than experienced statesmen, whose services anil patriotism afford adoqnate guarantees of a wise and conservative a<ministration? men who are entitled to the confidence of tbe conserva tive Oemrcmcy throughout tbe whole Union, whose kDcwn opinions and past history present satlsfectorv evidence that the constitutional and leral interests of every section of the Union will be dofcndod. No other than such a candidate ran successfully withstand fee t)ire;.teeing advances of abolitionism. The Couth will understand the dsrger, and avert it. lat .us have no more experiments upon the availability of third rate law yers, feinting gtnorais, or other obscure celebrities whose principal merit Is the twilight lustre of questionable county or Ktete renown. We are now so mixed up with tbe commercial aid political affairs of rival l'owrrs. by the r ppr? xlmatlng influence of steam and eiectricily, that we must liayean exierienei"! statesman in the I're sidentisl chair, or we snail be in constant danger of cowgiromlttirg the peace, the honor, or the vital inte rests of the country. let the voice or tbe conservative democracy < f the K'ate of New York be beard through Coi gt est lc rial dclegs 'Cf at the Cincinnati Cnnventlow.
