TH Wlioi* No, r,0().v Albany, Feb, 7, 1848. The General Manufacturing Bill?Ltgitlativt Proccidings?Rrcepth/n of General Quitman. The general bill to authorize the formation of corpora iona for manufacturing, mining, mechanical, or chemical purpose#, was considered by the Senate thia morning. The provision in this bill, in which the greatest interest is felt, is that concerning the liability ot stock-holders The 10.h, llih, 12ih, 13th, 18th, and 23d sections of ttie bill, as they passed the Assembly, read us follows: ? % 10 All the stock-holders of any such company that eh ill be hereafter incorporated under this aot, shall he jointly and severally liable f >r all debt* and contract* maJe by *nch nompany. until the whole amount of the capitil stock fixed and limited by the company in manuer aforeraid. shall have been paid in, and a certificate thereof shall have been made and reoorded as prescribed in the following seotion. ; 11 The president and a majority of the trustees, within thirty days after the payment of the last inatal raent 01 me oipicil hook, do nxeu ana umnau uj uie company. shall make certltloate atatlng the Amount of the capital 10 tix?d and paid la ; which oertifioete (hall l>o (Utirtd and sworn lo by the president and a majority of tbe trustees ; and they shalL within the Mid thirty days, record the same in tbe offloe of the oonnty olerk of tbe county wherein the business of the said company is oarried on.

(j 13 If the trustees of any suoh oompany shall declare andp'iy any dividend when the oompany lsiu'olveot. or any dividend,the payment of which would render It insolveut, or which would diminish the amount of its capital stook. they ehall be jointly and severally liable for all tbe debts of the oompany then existing, and for all that shall be thereafter contracted while they shall respectively oontibus In offloe : Provided. That If any of the trustees shall objeot to the declaring of suoh dividend, or to the payment of the same, and shall at any time before the time fixed upon for the payment thereof, file a certificate of their objection in writing with the olerk of the oompany, and with the clerk ef the oonnty, they shall be exemot from said liability. 18. The stockholder* of any oompany organised tinder the provisions of this aot, shall be jointly and severally Individually liable for all debt* that may be due and owing to all thtlr laborers, servants and apprentices, for services performed fer suoh oorporatlon. % 33 If tbe indebtedness of any suoh company shall at any time exceed the amount of its capital stook, the trustees of suoh oompany assenting thereto, shall bs personally and Individually liable for sueh excess to the creditors of such company. The following are the several substitutes which the committee on manufactures of the Senate reported tor the corresponding sections ot the bill, as it pussed the House :? &iO. All the stockholders of every company Inoorno rated unil'r tbla act, shall ba jointly and severally indl vidualiy liable to the creditors of ths company In which they ar? stockholders, to an amount equal to the amount of stock held by them respectively, fcr all debta and coc tracts made by such oompany, until the whole amount of oapital stock fixed and limited by suoh oompany in manner aforesaid, shall have bees paid in, and a oerti ficate thereof shall hare been made and recorded as pre scribed in the following section:?

Strike out the word " trustees," and insert " stockholders," and also strike out the words,' assentins thereto '' H Air Clark, the chairman of the committee on H manufactures, who reported amendments, unted their sdoption with great earnestness and eloquence. This senator is a whig of the liberal school; he is a practical whig, and he is hostile to the revolutionary tenets of the visionH aries aud theorists. In vindicating his amendH meuts, Senator Clark contessed his apprehenM sions that the system ol irresponsibility upon which the other house proposed to create and H establish corporations among us, would he productive of disastrous results. He viewed it as a most dangerous system, and as one which he could not bring himself to believe would meet with the approbation of this enlightened Senate. He earnestly desired senators to reflect before giving their votes for a bill which authorised corporators to contract debts to an illimitable amount, without giving any security for their payment. i am very sure that the honorable senator said all that any man could have said to defeat the bill; but he was merely wasting his breath. The amendments ot Senator Clark were voted down, one afti r the other, by the majority. They refused to allow the bill to be amended iu the least, not because,(as they confessed,)the amendmcnts were not just, but because they feared, if the hill wad altered, its passage through the house would be hazarded. 1 am now satisfied tliut the bid will pass with the no liability In the senate, to-day. Mr. Fine offered the following resolution, which lies over under the ll-si Ire J (If the Assembly concur,) That itbs recommen ded to the oanal commissioners, (if, in their opinion, It. be not Inconsistent with the public welfare.) to close the locks of th?

Tlie above corps, with their officers in full uniform, > ssembled at tlie Mansion House, in Hrodilw?y, nt hall-past live o'clock. Several thousand citizens also assembled at the above point, determined to giv? the brave general n cordial reception. Tne military bands attached lo the above corps were on the ground at an eurly hour, where they played a number of martial aim. The Housatonic train with the distinguished guest on lioiird, reached the depot at hast Alt>my at 7 o'clock 1\ M. Its arrival was signall/. 'd to the thousands on the opposite side of the river by the discharge of artillery and the deafening huzzas of the committees of reception. General Quitman was immediately escorted to the ferry boat "Boston," which was crowded to its utmost capacity. _ Major General Cooper with his stall, all in unilorm, awaited its arrival at the slip upon the Albany side; the diffi-rent military companies of this city were also deployed into line ; nuny thousands of citizens were gathered at the lauding, and I noticed also one of the fire companies ol the city, which had turned out in order to give the general a really grand reception ; the uppearance of the military was pleasing in the highest degree. Immediately upon the disembarkation ot General Quitman, shout after bh'iut issui d troin the throats of the throng which encircled hiin on every side; he was conduct*d, or rather carried by the military, to a very elegant sleigh, which stood in readiness to receive him; this sleigh, in which the general was seated, whs escorted by the military and limn n through ihe principal streets to the capilol; (hiring the passage the hero wus cheered in tlr m?st enthusiastic manner, by thousands ot citizens, who in their eOnrta to get a glimpse at hi?> leiituren, actually blocked up the street, and compelled the procession to come to a dead nalt: the general rode bare headed. Upon his arrival at the capitol lie was couducted into the executive chamber, where the governor, and the several State oflicers were waiting to receive him Upon his entrance into the ahambir, he E NE NEW was received by Adjutant (Jencral Stevens, who ! addressed some very appropriate remark* to i him. General Quitman having then been introi duced to the several State officers, returned j thanks for the enthusiastic reception which had ! been given him. The several military com| panies then passed in review before the distin' guished guest, after which, an effort was made I to eet him outside the capitoj; but the anxiety of the immense crowd which choked up 'lie vestibule of the capitol to see the brave general i was so great, that it was found impossible to ; clear a passage for his egress. lie accordingly ' took a position upon the steps leading to the Senate chamber, from which he made a short address ; every sentence he uttered wus drowned in the huzzas of the citizens. The reception of this gallant officer, was,on the whole,very creditable to the city. Mexican A fl'nlrn. TIIK LINK POLICY. I Krom th? Washington l nion, Feb. 7 1 We had the pleasure of meeting an intelligent offlcei to-day, from the army, who seemed thoroughly acquainted with the Mexican character and views He conteuded that aur true policy was to prosecute the war with energy?to make It bear down upon the people, that they might feel ill effect*?in a word, that we must conquer as much a* we could command with all the means in our p>wer, and than, with the aid of what we mi^ht possess, to oompel the Mexicans to grant us an honorable peaoe. and a fair indemnity. He argued with great force that we ought not to oonflne ourselves to a defensive linn, but that *? ought to conquer capital after oapltal.and State after State; and when we have brought this mluerabl* race to feel the full calamities of the war, and compelled them to make peaoe, we might abandon everything that was not comprehended within the indemnity lis a. The country cannot have forgotten the ulcquont letter whl-<h Geo. Quitman addressed to a senator of the United States upon the best mode ot terminating the war, in which he oontended that we should never surrender the oapital, or the road to Vera Cruz, before we had made a treaty of peace ; that, if we abandon the oity, which had such controlling influence over all Mexico, the crllltary oflloers would again flock to it, and there reunite and r>organiM their forces, and pour back the tide of war upon na; or, if they oould not agree together, but tail into new dissensions, that some foreign power might be Invited, and induced to step in to adjust their differences, and dictate laws to the whole of Mexico.? Such were the views of one of the most experienced and aooompllsbed of our ctHoers Any defensive line?much less one which excludes the possession of the oapital and the intermediate country to the coast, and Vera Cruz aud the castle?does not appear to be the true polioy for us to pursue. It meets neither with the general approbation ot the gentlemen of the army, nor of the citizens at home. EXECUTIONS JN THE ARMY.

Ter Jan 18, 1848 ?Mr. Thomas Qlendy, of 4t Charles oonity, Mo , arrived at this post laat evening, baring encountered and overcome all the dingers, privations and difficulties Incident to such a trip, at suoh a season of the year, direct from Oregon City, Oregon Terrltotf. Mr. Glendy. with only one companion, left Oregon City on the 33d day of September last, and with that daring spirit of bravery and en erpriz* so characteristic of the hardy sons and pioneers of the west, started on hi* distant and perilous journey to the States, over, mountains and plains, covered with snow, tenanted ODly by the wild beasts of the forest, and the still more savage and hostile Indians. This little company left Oregon with six mules. Before t iey reached Fort Hall, th?y lost, by death, all their mules save one, and tbey were compelled to make MM of him for tbe purpose of packing their little stock of necessaries and provisions, while they travelled on foot through suow (as they represent It) so doep in many plaoea as to reach above their knees. At l'ort Hall, they were disappointed In their expectation t f procuring other animals, but nothing daunted by difficulties, they again started on foot, making ?low and tedious progress, on acoount of the great depth of snow, and thrir being compelled often to take olrcuitous and distant routes, to avoid tailing in with roaming bands of 1o(1Irks, and arrived here safely, with the exoeptlon of badly irost bitten feet Mr. Glendy is a practioal wodsman, and well acquainted with Indian oharaoter. and was thereby enabled to make the entire trip without seeing a single hostile Indian. Mr. Glendy brings with him some seventy-three letters, which he has deposited, and will be mailed from this place. IjSte and Interesting Intelligence from Cnba ?A Terrible Hurrlrnnr! [From the I'ailadelphia Bulletin ] We have received flies of Matanzas papers up to the 18th of last month. which report a terrible flood at Ntgua and Mayarl. The loas experienced in these districts is computed to amount to $100,000 ! We extraot the following letter* reoelved at Matanias : ? St Jaoo, Deo. 28th. 1347 ? At 4 o'clock in the afternoon of the 17th of thla month, the wind began to blow from the northeast, acoomponied ky some rain; it continued thus till five o'clock, at which hour the atnioepbere beoams thick, the wind changing from northeast to northwest. blowing with more fury, and the rain continuing until 8 o'clock of the same day, when the Inhabitants began to fear some catastrophe, since the vlolenee of tbe wind and the terrible continuance of the rain pronounced it ruch. At > o'elock at night of the 17th, the large riter .Miguel Castro became swollen to an immense also, burying beaeath its waters the flourishing tobatco crop* that grew on lta s'mrer, aud afterwards extending much further, wlibeut dykes that could detain It. The inundation of the district waa almost general. The furious wind that blew?tbe urrible floods that inured from the elouda -the impetuous and Irresistible current of the rivers which everywhere overQ jWrd their banks-the sorrnwful peasants, wandering from one place to another, In solicitude ot gathering their families and cattle, to save them irom this terrible hurricane, (resented a sad, though lmposiog a picture. In this manner it continu d till live o'clock on the morning of the 17th, when tbe wind ceased, and the.clcuiU restrainedJtbelr torrent*. On ths evening of thla day the rain again poured, with redoubled fury, and at midnight the rivera grow to a more dangerous sue than they d d the day before. The tobacoo crop, the fruit, and the cattle of that dlft rict. have nearly all remained entombed In tbe bosom of the rivers With respect to personal calamities, we are unable now to give you any Information, for at this date tbe rivers have not yet regained their uatural cbnnnela, and till these are fordable, we can give no exact news Mavari, December 1A. 1847.?At 8 o'clock It began to rain in thla diatrlot, without acarcely any Intermission, until the 18th, ao that the rivera by which we are surrounded became terribly swollen, and ev<n threatened to I inundate the dwtlliniis, whloh are at a great elevation, causing immense damage to the tobacco crop; indeed, there barely remains a single slgu of tbia year's planting To add to tbe oalamity, great hopea had been entertained by the planters, when In a fe* daya they aaw the frulta of their labor In the moat flourishing and promising condition, particularly the corn, from which an immerse orop waa expected ; all these, however, are Irretrievably lost.

Utic, Htr,U W ?0 YORK, WEDNESDAY M The Supreme Court of llie United State*. Washington, Feb. 7, 1848. Tiiis morning the following cases wer>* taken up tor argument, they all embrace the same nrincip'es, unci are to he answered a^d ar^uea to geiher. The first in order, is No. 57, I'eck and Bellows, plaintiffs in error ?<?. Jenness rt ul . defendants in error, to the Supreme Court of Judicature of New Hampshire. No. is an appeal from the same court No .144, Howland ttal. plaintiffs in error, r*. the Citjr Hank of New Orleans, defendants in error; this casp is an appeal from the Supreme Court of Louisiana. In Nos. 57 and <?8, Mr. Webster appears tor plaintiff, and Messrs. Goodrich ?nJ Hale,of New Hampshire, for defendants, la 144, Messrs. Henry Clay, Reverdv Johnson and J. II. Rradlev, for the plaintiffs; John Sergeant, Hale, and Goodrich, tor defendants. At an early hour, the court room was thronged by persons anxious to hear the argument* of the | distinguished gentlemen engaged in these causes. At a few minutes after three o^clock, the court was opened, and then the business of the day was proceeded with. The first cise in order was:? ?/. ? rnilip recs an'i win. dhuuwh, pimuuufl m error, vs John L. Jenness and others, defendants in error In error to tbe Superior Court of indicature of New 1 Hampshire. Statement?Tbe defendant* in error oause a writ of attachment to be iseu?d from the Court of Common Pleas, against the plaintiffs in error, wbioh was served on the lOih of October, 184i, by an attaohment of the estate of the original defendants. The defendants pleaded a discharge in bankruptcy. upon proceedings instituted 'Jtith November, 184J. The plaintiffs below rented an attaohment of property, and prayed judgment to be levied thereon. The plaintiffs below rrjoin an order of the DUtriot Court, made 1 *?fch January, 184-4, upon petition of Ho wland, assignee of Peck and Bellows, directing the sheriff and his deputy, of the oounty of Cheshire, to account i'?r apd deliver to. Rowland the property attached The platatfffi belftw demur, and issued Is joined. The Court of Common I'leas rendered judgment for the plaintiffs below, to be levied upon the property attached. The defendants below brought error. The Superior Court of Judicature of New Hampshire, affirmed the judgment of the Court of Common I'leaa. To reverse the judgments aforesaid, this writ of error is brought, and errors assigned. In March 1H45, the parties agree to a sale of the property (o abide tbe event. _ The plaintiffs in error make these points : ? 1. An attachment or mesne process, as known to the laws of New Hampshire, is not a lien or seourity, within the Bankrupt Statute of August 19, 1841. J. The order stated in the r joinders is a bar to the further maintenance of the suit by the plaintiffs below. Mr Wehdtkr opened the argument for the plaintiff) in error in No. 57, by considering the question whether the attaohment in this case created lien; and if there i bs a lien, did the same override, or was it superior to the ; jurisdiction of tbe district court, in proceedings in bank- ! ruptoy? Upon this point he referred the court to the 1 opinions ot the oourts below, and suggested that those opinions were adverse to the opinion of this oourt in the case of exparte Christy. As to the validity ot Ken and its effeot, connected with tbis inquiry, Mr. Webster cited-J, Story, 121; K*p?rte Foster, 3d Story. 4i8. and said that tbe oourt of New Hampshire, in t is case of Bellows Si Peck. Tin first case covers one point, the seoond covers both He was of opinion that when a petition of bankruptcy was filed, and proceedings had in tbe case, that the conclusiveness of the dlstrlot judge over all the assets and claims of the bankrupt, was dear and well settled and referred to t.he opinion of the court in Christy's case, 3, Howard 318 Upon tbis statement, and tho authorities cited, he could rest, but he proposed to , explain tbe law of attachment on mesne prooess By ths second section of the bankrupt act, it would appear that thete was no lien for debt, contemplated by it* provisions This attachment or mesne process was a lien in a certain sense, but it does not save tbe property in case of a general solvency This was his opinion, and he thought the well established law, but the opinions of the State oourts was the other way This attachment on mesne process wa? peculiar to four or five States?a looal law,and It may be said that upon it, this court is called upon to review the decision of a State court upon its own la<r. But the question here was not upon a State statute or deoislon. but upon the construction and meaning of an aot of Congees*. Even admitting that in : State courts, under State laws, this attaohment under i raexne process, was regarded as a lleD, yet tbe qu*stio% here is, was it a lien under the bankrupt act of Congress | 1841 T Mr W. then proceeded to give a history of at1 tauhmentlaws In ancient times, there was no such [ thing kuown as a eapim ad respondendum, exoept for ! tre>passsounding ondamage? not for acivildebt. There 1 was a judicial writ then issued of lubpitna. and the party suelng proceeded against the debtor's property by dtiiringn Until lately, there was no judgment by default for non-appearance; reoent statutes-soma thirty or forty tears ago. gave this?and when the party appeared the attaohnient was dissolved. He then proceeded to give the history of the laws of attaohmeat in vfassacbusetts and other Eastern states, and ur^ed that In every State, the attachment upon mesne process was regarded but as a leourity lor tbe suit, and an ineldent of the action ; that if the action was discontinued, stjpped, or disposed of, ths attachment, the incident of the action was dissolved. He considered it hut In the light of a mere security which the plaintiff held, until the action was deoided ; and if any thing occurred to take away bis oauso ot aotion, this attachment, which was based upon the acii3n fell to the ground, and was Instantly dissolved. He regarded It in the light of a special bail, wh<oh was, of course, released and discharged upon the oruse of actioo, as suourtty for which it was required, being lost or taken away, Mr Webster said be would call upon his learned brother (Mr. Goodrich.) to show why, if this attachment be nothing more than establishing a security for this action, this case is not analagous to a case of special bail ? and why, If In the latter oase, tbe action be discontinued, ami the special bail released, should not this attachment be dirsclved by the discontinuance of the action. He thought that the two cases were most analagous, and If there was a distinction between them, it was a distlnc tion without a difference. He put a case of an aotion for a test, where, if the party bringing ths aotion dies, tbe case is at an end ; and the party under security is released Mr. Goodrich asked If this was always the case T Mr Wkhtir replied that he rera*mber?J one ease where a venerable person had a ease many years ago, which he wishtd to have provided for by some aot, and he got tbe legislature (New Hampshire, I think) to pass an act, to allow the personal representatives of a party dying, to come in and take certain steps, which would continue his oase ; and It vtas a subject of no little merriment at the bar, at the time, when it was discovered that the act of the old gentleman oovered a great many ! cases, other people's, but not his own. Kxcept In this I osse, Mr. W. said be knew of no other rase, where an j aotion of tort, did not fall upon the death of the party He would make one other proposition and then < oonolude wbat be had to say upon this case. In Massa ohusett* and New Hampshire, and he did not ki'ow but It was the same lo Vermont, there was a law, '.hat If a i party suingjmuke an attachment of the lands and tene- , mems of the defendant and during the proceedings under | that action, the defendant die, and bis personal representatives shall oome into court within a certain time and take certain steps, that is, suggesting in open court, that the personal estate of the deceased defendant is notsufB- | oient to paylall his debts, In that oase the suit against the deoeased defendant is at an end, and the attachment is immediately dissolved'; and the whole estate is talon and follows the usual course of an insolvent estate hart her, in furtherance of the aims Idea, he ha 1 to r?- j mark that In New Hampshire, there is no admlnsstra- , lion of the property of living Insolvents for purp< of j distribution. But, tf an Insolvent person dies there is j an administration of his property, oa principle of ratable distribution. There la no releasing irom mortgages, Sec , hut there Is a dissolution of such attachments as in this case existed, upon withdrawing tbe osuse of action upon which tii*y arn ba<ei I1 > thought the decision of this court, In lialdwin and ! Sanders, end Sturgcss and Crowninsbuld.wliioh he conj slJered it unnecessary to read, left the power of the I -Uatts to pass Insolvent laws. In au awkward situation, if, Indeed, not a very difficult one to proceed with sale ty. But in Massachusetts, a gentleman of tbe bar, of I considerable emlocao , a Mr Cnarles Jackson, drew,and the le^lsature passed, an insolvent law, in conlorralty with t be decisions of this court, and of tbe dissenting opinion* of Jud<e . The principle of that law wjs this, that a man, finding himself unable to pay h'sdebts, oango before a prothonotary?as the offi .'er is called, or master in chancery; or, as he Is styled In some plaoes, the judge of the orphans' court or probate judg >?and make a declaration to that effect, viz: that be In unable to pay all his debts, and with this probate, and this declaration Bled in court, all attachments upon mesne process are to inomenio ipi? fa<-to dissolved Hespok?of this lawas the law In .Massachusetts He knew not if It was the law In New Hampshire. He olted this Ww to show the course of con struotion and decision is, that In any case where insolvency takes place, all attachments on mesne process are instantly dissolved. In New Hampshire, as he had shown, In cases of deceased persons, It w?s the oase. In i he opinion of the court below it is admitted, that wbeu a man Is insolvent, and bis avowal that h* is so, is made, then all attachments ars dissolved, and a proper distribution is made among all his creditors. Mr. Webster agtln referred to his position?that ho regarded that tnis attachment was only for the action, and any thing which destroys the action, destroys tne attachment He had quoted already the 4th seotlon of the bankrupt aot. to show that all actions against a party about to become bankrupt. a>e ended by his taking tbe steps, tor tbat purpose. uut t lie case now oeiore in* " ourt, to and the MMMlVf of the court below Is, that the attachment may he kepi alive, and as a coostquenoe tbe aotlon In alto kept alive This being the v?ry reverse of all tho reasonlcg heretoiore made use of by i <iu't* and Judges?tbat the attachment l? but ao incident of the action, and depends upon it. He had now, he believed, concluded thn duty which be felt incumbent upon h 11 la opening this case. aud indeed, he had said more than he deemed necessary. But this case is a mere question of construction of a statute, which in this particular was perhaps known to but a few lneabers ol Congiess; and it la lor the Court now to say whether this lien was as broad and as large as any State Court can claim. All State Courts admit that the attachment is dUsolved if the cause of aotlon be taken awsy before Judgement; and your honors have to say, whether they are not dissolved when yeu take away tbat upon which the ca>e can only goto Judgment. In the next case, No 08, he felt he had a lighter task to perform, The only question is, had the Diatrlot Judge, exercising an tiolusivajuriadlotioa over the baakrupt case*, the power to order tbat all the property ef tks bankrupt be brought late Court ?

But whathe oould say upon this point la much better said by this court in the caae of Kxparta Christy, and there haa bean no attempt on the part of any eourt to wrest the matter from the district judge, but in one case. The court be'.ow had. and Mr W was sorTy to > ay it hud dona so. deollned to take the oase of Christy as an authority. Mr. W. referred further to this matter, and concluded his remarks. Mr. Goodrich?

Mr (Goodrich, of Nww Hampshire, followed for the defendant in error, and insisted upon an afllrmanoe of the decision below upon the following grounds:? 1. The District Court for New Hampshire acquired no jurisdiction of the several original petitions of Philip Peck and of William Bellows, to hs deolared bankrupt; and Its proceedings upon said several petitions are void, beoausa the plead do not aver or show that the petitions were verified by oath, without which oath and verifications were nullities. The pleas do not aver that the petitioners represented to said Dlstrlet Court that they owed debts not mated In consequence of a defalcation as a publlo officer, or as exenutor. administrator, guard las. or while acting In any Uduoiary character That the pleas do not aver or exhibit the notloe which was ordtred, or which was published, of the time when the said several original applications to 1>? declared bankrapt would be considered. 2. That the several rejoinders of the original defendants, and the matters therein aet up, amount in law to a departure from these several pleas. 3. The statute of th e United States in relation to bank rnptcies,of August 10,1941, as to all matters of liens and securities, adopts the laws of the Prates, respectively, and xempts from the operation of tlis decree of bankruptcy, all property, which, at the time of the decree, might be charged with any duty, lien, or security valid by the law of the State, in which the duty, lien, or security might arise The unlfenn policy of the United States has been to adopt the laws, usages, and mod's of proceeding of the several States, so far as the same may be practicable. An) attachment in mesne process was know a to the laws of the United States, as a lien and security. and as such, recognized by its j udiclory. prior to August 19.1841. 4 An attachment in mesne process, on 19th August, 1941, and on Ootober 10th. 1942, was a Inn valid by the laws of the State of N?w Hampshire 5. Assuming that the act of '41 adopts the laws of the States respectively, as to liens and r jo unties, and that an attachment in mesne prooess, as known to the laws of New Hampshire, is regarded by such law as a valid lien or security, it results, rx neceuitaie, that a discharge of a bankrupt does not, and oannot, defeat a lien or seourity rightfully created and existing prior to any act of bankruptcy. ? The order of the District Court, exhibited In the rejoinders, is not an authority within the meaning of the25th section of the judioiary act of 1799, and if it be such authority, neither Peck or Bellows claim title under it; for which reasons, the deoisions of the State Court upon the effect of suoh order, cannot be reconsidered in tiiis Court. 7. Tho District Court had no jurisdiction to make the order which is set up In the several rejoinders of the defendants below, bsoause It is an attempt by the District Court contrary to the provisions of the 2dth section of the act of 1789, to exercise appellate jurisdiction over the State Court; because the prop-rty at the time the order was made, was In cut to din rrgit. 8. The order of the District Court oan have no effeot upon the rights of the parties before this court, because the linfanrf&ntji in arror war* not nartiee to the nroceod iag belore tbe District Court, because the order li in fiertvnam against the sheriff and his deputy, aud doe# not reaoh. or In any way fasten upon the property ; because, assuming an attachment is a lien or security, the order must In regarded a* to tba uie of the defend tuts In error, and their proceedings in tbe State Court, alter such order, amounts to a release of the order by tbe parry beneficially entitled ; because tbe pUiaMffs in err?r. subsequent to the order,agreed to a sale of the property; and because tbe order does not purport to reauh real estate. 0. The MTeral petitions of Peck and of Bellows to be deolared bankrupt do not aver the insolvency of Teck & Co as a Arm, to pay Its debts; and the several decrees of bankruptcy do not eut<j?ot the joint or partnership property to tbe action of ine bankruptcies Withou; concluding his argument, Mr. Goodrich, at ' 3 o'clock, su'peuded, aad the court adjourned. Mr Clay, Mr. Johnson, acid Mr. Sergeant are to speak i yet. As thslr particular cases come up, 1 will give an abstract of eaoh oase.

The public mind has been thrown into a perfect fermentation here, during the past week, by the call for a great Taylor meeting at College, Hall, last night. This call was signed by over one thousand citizens, among whom T notice tbe names of some ot the most talented and iniluential men in the city. Hon. Bellamy Storer, lion. N. G. Pendleton, Judge Hall, with many of our most extensive and enterprising merchants, went into tbe movement with zeal and enthusiasm. This excited the chagrin of the old hunker whigs, and alarmed the democrats, who, however widely separated in other things, are united in their opposition to General Taylor. The Atlas and Gazette, both whig, and the Enquirer, democratic, poured "cold water" on the whole affiir, but all their effort* failed to prevent the people from attending in great numbers. At an early hour, the spacious hull in the Merchant*' Exchange Building, was crowded to overflowing; it w.tsa perfect "jam." Hon. N. G. Pendleton, assisted by sixteen Vice Presidents, composed of whigs and democrats, presided. R. M. Corwine, Esq., Judge Hall and others, were appointed a committee to prepare resolutions lor the consideration ot the meeting. When the committee h id retired, the conflict between the opposing factions commenced.? Henry Harr, Esq., an old hunker whig, led on the attack; and, in the course of his remarks, declared that he was opposed to the elevation ol General Taylor to the presidency. This was followed by groans, hisses, and cries, mingled with exclamations of "hear him," " go on," Stc. Mr. Pendleton responded in a spirited tone, amid the enthusiastic cheers of the audience. Amid the wildest contusion, the committee returned with their report, recommending ( ieneral Taylor for the presidency. One ol the resolutions expressed the willingness of the meeting to acquiesce iu the decision of a national convention. This, which had been warmly opposed by many of General Taylor's friends, was the signal of general uproar. The democrats and old huiiker whigs encouraged the dissensions by every means in their power. Jas. \V. Taylor, Esq., editor of the Signal, and the same to whom General Taylor wrote his celebrated letter, opposed the connection of General Taylot's nune with auy party or convention. He proceeded, nmid hisses, cheers, and dire confusion. Old Taminany never presented a more bedlamlike scene. It now became evident that there was an organized ell'ort to put down the meeting by the opposing tactions, and but for uu accident whicti occurred at this sta^e ol the proceedings, there is no telling what would have been the result. The pillars which suppoited the immense hall, in which the meeting was assembled, gave way under the heavy weight of the multitude, and the floor cracked, and began to sink. The scene whs, at this time, so territic that it beggars description The rush to the doors and windows was fearful. Many were trampled upon, and almost crushed to death. Terror seized every mind, some leaping through the windows, regardless of life or limb. The door was blocked up with living forms, the windows broken, chairs, siUees, stands, &c., crushed into pieces by the terrified multitude ; cloaks, hats, watches, &c , scattered in every part ot the rooni, und grey-he.ided sires and robust youths were seen running to und fro, leaping Iroin bench to bench, in the wildest terror. The alarm lasted but a few moments, but beiorc the crowd could reco ver their self-possession, the thieves had secured ilie spoil*. Many a cloak and hit disappeared, never again to be seen by their owner i One ot the city lathers, a member ot council, lost Ins cloak, hat, and wig. He was seen returning home, bare-headed, his silver locks?no, lie had lost tliein?his smooth pite glittering in thegavlight like the rising moon. fhe meeting thus suddenly adjourned, will reassemble this evening, with the view ot winding up the unfinished business of latt night. Ae tliey assemble in the market-house, I trust there will not be another " break-down." There will be rare *poit, at any rate. I will send you an account ot the "grand finale" to-morrow, with, perhaps, a list ot the killed and woundrd in the conflict of last night. Wmckkn. Political lnMtl|?ii ?< There i? a call in the st.
