Otber matters of little importanoe wer trans acted, aDd tbe Board adjourned at a late hour. The Coal Trade.? The difficulty with tbe miners anl canal boatmen has caused the priee of eoal to advanoe one dollar per ton in this city, and the supply of coal is 172,346 tons short cots pared with the amount en hand tt this reason last yar, anl lhe demand for coal is con sequently muchgrea'er than the supp'y. We learn that the boatmen have yielded in their ee mauds to the em. plovers, and are now actively at work in endeavoring to make up for their lost time. The freights are the same ss last year? 91 90 to New York and DO cents to Poiia oeiphla.

We are informed tuat the attempt cf the Third Avenue Company to smugg'e through the Board of Aldermen a ! projest to charge the inhabitants of the upper half of Yorkville (above Eighty-sixth street,) ten cents, instead of six centa? the price allowed by their grant ? and all others who reside above that point, is almost unknown to the inhabitants of tnat locality and those who travel on the line. No mee ing of the Railroad Committee of the Board of Aldermen has been ad re ;t teed in re'ereoce to the subject, tbe first pub'io intimation of it being the re port of the Aldermen's Railroad Committee, at the last meeting of tbe Board last year, upon which a mes-ing of cither s of Harlem and Y orkvllle was eon vened in January, and a commlt'ee appointed to watch and oppose the attempt to carry it through. No meeting of tbe Aldermen's Committee on Railroads, on that matter, has been adver tised this year. aid. therefore, no opportunity to opposs it has been afforded the committee trotn Harlem and Yorkville, It appears to be the intent of the Aldermen's committee to report in favor of the increase, without giving a sufficient opportunity to oppose it' and shiw its mlnous effect on property above Eighty-sixth street, oi^ the evil of a principle which can be applied to every other ' .city railroad grant, or, indeed, by precedent, to einj contract entered into by an^indirldual or company with the city authorities, for they ean, if thiii project sncceeis, come with a good face be'nrs any commlt'ee, or the.Con mon Council, plead poverty, and deatnd Increased com pensation.

' The fifth anniversary of this society was held last night, In the large ohapel of the New York University, and notwithstanding the steray weather, an overflowing audienct was In attendants, a large number of whom were young ladles, who cams te tv lie applause on tbe young orators. The exercise* con sisted of an address by Joseph G. Harrison, the President of the club; a p-em, entitled "The Six Old Baeheiors " by Philip H. Biwne; an essay on flotlon, by Geo. W. Boyd; "r?-e Dream cf Youth," a poem, by Win. L Keese; and an essay, styled, " Let us be Practical," spoken by Ed. C. Cooper AU these efforts were very creditable, ai.d receive i tbelr meed of well deserved appiaose. The effor.8 o. Messrs. Bowne. Keete and Cooper were particu larly commendable. D< dsworth's Bind suppllel the music, which was. of eonrse, good; and one piece, entitled "White Mountain Echoes, " received a merited enaore. The audiecee separated at a la tT hour, satisfied that the performance was worth much more than they paid for it, which was just nothing at all. Honor to whom Honor is Due.? About two weeks ago a young, tins looking and educated German girl, nineteen yean of age, named Lisetta Poeekel, was sent to the Staten Island Marine Hospital, by the Commissioner of Emigration, 'being In a melancholy state of mind. At far as oould be ascertained from ber own statement it seems she had been vilely treated by some rascal un known. All she requested was, to be let alons and allowed to walk from sunrise to euneet In the little , gardet of the hospital. This was granted to her, aad tie I poor girL under special oare of a German nurse, went many miles to aad fro every day. On Monday after noon, ah ut five o'clock, ehe requested her nurse to go | with her down to the bath house, inside the Quarantine; end while c oesing there she suoealy ju-nped over the railing into lhe river. The terrified nurse, erytng for help, was heard by l)r. Theodore Walter, the assistant physi cian of the hospital, who, with full speed arriving at the plaoe, without hesitation, and at tbe risk of hi* own ttfn, sprang in.o the river.

The injuries re Mi red were chiefly oa the head and face. M. Bngaoii was re moved po his residence in town, in a carriage, and vas soon seen by Dr. Qarnoehan, who speaks favorably of his speedy rcoovery. TO TBI EDITOR OF TUt HRIAI.P. I nntlced in yesterday's edition of the Hebalo an ac count ef a disturbance between Engine Companies Nos. A and 11. I would state that at the time spoken of No. 6 was in the house, the roll called, and many of the members gone home. There seems to be a disposition on the part of some evil disposed parties to bring Kngtns Company No. 0 in disrepute by false representations through the columns of the public jsurnais.

It was Ms traits aa a nubile man and as a statesman ?it was bis high and lofty independence, hia cure uaselfl?h patriotism, his high aad dignified character, his nationality and disinterested teal for the pieeervation of the Union, the unsullied purity of his whole course of public conduct, his free, fearless, hold defence of the constitution and of the Union? it was, la my onlnion, all this, air; It waa his keen and acute per ception to olaeover when there waa danger to the l nlon, and hla TMdlneea at all times to oome forward with tha olive branch of peace, a a tbe pacificator. Never has thit Union been In danger that Henry Clay was not tha man looked to, of all men In thia country, to hrtng f >rward the olive branch of peace, and to aag, " Hush, be ?till;" at?l there waa peace. He not only aerved the people, but be aerved hlacountrv and the Union. On three Alffarentoa cthiona of his life- 1820, 1832 and I860? whan that dem^ olac cry of disunion waa raised, we find that Htnry Clnjr waa the man who came forward and hushed Into still *ea? the road fanaticism that would have ruined ua. Mr. P-eslr ent when I first came Into public life, or rather 1 ahouid aay, when 1 first took an active part In public Nfe Henry Clay waa known as the great "commoner" o! thia country. After the year 1?W, he became known aa tbe "gtsat lacifioator" of the country. After I860, he waa known ai the great "oommonor, pacificator, and statesman" of the Union. Sir, well mar tha county of Haaover be proud of the nart ahe haa acted la the great ??rama of thia nation'* history.

This name, air, strikee me with .peculiar foraag There aie few names la modern history associated with so manv acts of royal prerogative a* the names ol tha King of Eagland and the King of Hanover. There -is an name in America ? I believe, and aaaert it now ? that then ia no name in America which is associated with eo ? f illustrious historical reminisce* oes, as the Vlrgjola-Haao ver. It is associated with the names ot those who have proclaimed the principles of republican! urn, and staked their lives upon the ixeue, In the contest for civil liberty. Yes, fir, Hanover, allow me to say, as far a* 1 caa.uader stand it, is distinguished by more glorious ass ociatioaa than perhaps any pait of this Union, ltls the btrih place cf Patnnk Henry? it is the birth place of Half Clay, cf Judge Rcane, and of John Taylor, A Votcx ?

Mr. Bctlbb ? ?lr, when others feared to utter lea gusge that might be offensive to the Rnplsh na tion, during her dominion over this country, Pat'iok Henry, tbe hero, patrict and orator, areaa in the House of Burgesses and said, "Csesar had his Brutus, Charles tbe ttrst his Cromwell, aad- George the third may profit by toeir example." Thev oried eat treason, treason; but he tohl them to make ?h> most It. Take it, gentlemen, said he, and make what you ea of it. Such was the bold, defiant character of the iilaa triou* Henry. Well, indeed, may Hsaover be proud of her distiaguished son, and it mar be, sir, that in after times she wMi hsve associated with the names < f Pacriek Henry and Henry Clay, others worthy to b?> classed with that distinguished pair. These names, sir, are tuV el historical associations? they are instructive in evsqy point ot view. Now, sir, I Intend to make but very few raaoarks. I knew Mr. C ay very well. Ia 1811, when I was a boy, the war was declared. 1 well re member that 1 had gone to the Post office aad carried home tha newspapers in which tbe speeches of Henry Clay ea* of John C.
