This company ere.-oine an unfair power of monopoly in refusing to acorn mod ite the inhabitants of South B.ookyn. The re solutions were referred to the Committee on Feme*, ard, as that body is constituted of different members to that cf the last Board's committee, there is some hope that the ri h monopolists will not agaiaau v ceed in defeating the desires of a large number of merchants, traders, clerks, and other persons doing business in New York and residing in Brooklyn. The Know Nothings of the Board have made a move to elicit the number and nationality of the police foroe, how many of them have been in prison in this or other countries, and ho n mmy are naturalized, &).

The Chevalier WUtoflT Once Blor?-? HU Vmc. llrau Anglo-Frtnch Diplomacy and lt? C'ontequi ncca. We publish this morning, a communication from the Chevalier Wikofl", touching the stric tures of tJie Loudon Times on his " Courtship and itp Consequences." This gives us an op portunity tro inviting to be passed over, for a more particular insie* c exposition of the com plex and cemprch?nsivc diplomacy of the Che valier. on both sides of the Iiritisb channel, in that eventful interval in European affairs be tween the year 1849 and the roup dVtat of De cember, 1861. This exposition is due to the Lordon Timet, to Lord Palmerston, to Louis Napoleon, to Miss Gamble to the Emperor of KuRsin. to Wikofl", and all coDcerucd. We arc aware that the Chevalier is writiug the history, in all its details and minutito, offi cial and confidential conversations, despatch ??, protocols, and newspaper arrangements inclu sive, in connection with his diplomatic func tions under Lord Palmerston and Louis Napo leon ? we are aware, too, that in this present exposition we may be anticipating the Cheva lier's book; but the demands of private and public justice are parnmount. Wikoff will ad mit it, and the London Times will appreciate the propriety of a speedy correction of its mis directed accusations and inuendocs in the pre mises. With this apology, we proceed to our specifications and explanations. A great crieis produces great men, and a deep and broad political revolution invariably brings up some master spirit to the surface, competent to take the direction of the new I order of things. Such are the landmarks of i history. The revolutionary and reactionary ' movements hinging upon the expulsion of Louis Philippe furnish one of these examples, scarcely Jess conspicuous than the "Man of I)est<ny,'' uprising from the Chios of the Reign of Terror, changing confusion into order, and the dements of anarchy and dis-olution into solidity and strength. Louis Napoleon is the man. Ilia entrie, from comparative social ob tcurity in London, into the councils of France, brings us vis ii vis with our hero, the Chevalier i Wikeff; for it was uuder the first Presidency of Louis Napoleon that Wikofl' entered upon his mysterious but momentous and diversified diplomatic engagements. . It was at this crisis that Wikofl" attracted the attention of the French republican govern ment in certain newspaper articles in the Paris press, explanatory of tb'* constitution and the institutions of the United States, lie had visited and sympathized with Louis Napoleon at iiam and had thus secured, at least for n season, a patron at court. II was in the summer of 1850, we believe, that he was brought Into contact with the | British embatsyjat Paiis; ami it was here th it his political disclosures of the aggressive tenden cies of the French republic against Eugland resulted in his diplomatic engagement with the I oreign Office under Loid Paiinerston. His in forma* ion was important nnd alarming, fore sbudew lug, as it did. the invasion of England by a fleet of steamer*, uuder cover of night, nnd the final settlement, in a brief camp tign, of the unadjusted accounts lietwecn the rival Powers, from Waterloo back to Agincourt. In April, l?f>l, Wikofl* informs us in his "Courubip," be wenk over to London, on the double mission of a visit to Miss Gamble and a call at the Foreign Office for his quarter's salary. And here we strike into the pith of the matter. lie hints that ho cirricd over at this time some impor- ant diplomatic pupora. What were they 1 One of them was a produc tion of On. Changarnier, comprehending the frojit of an invasion of England. He pro posed the concentration of an army of fifty thousand men near Calais, and a fleet of war steamers at tba' place or Boulogne, simiita neously with tbe march of the army to the tame point, and that, by night, with all possi ble h< cres v and dc^paich, thia army should be emt arked and shipped to ihe coast of England. Tbe fleet was then to return for re-iuforee ments, while the army, in a forced march, was to move upon Loudon, surprise it, capture it, take possession of the deposits of the Bank of { England, make prisoners of the royal family and issue a proclamation to the chartists and the masses of the people in beh Uf of a repablic, upon the French tripod of " Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity." Such was the projtt of inva sion of Chan garnicr, of the spring of '49. But the subterranean re-revolutionary attempt of the reds and socialists of Paris of the following June, and the distrust of Changarnier by Louis Napoleon, overthrew the scheme. By Palmeraton, however, Louis Napoleon was comprehended as a principal in this plot. Hence the sensation in England, and the fears of an impending invasion, which agitated tbe whole island. Thia alarm was increased by the election in '49 of Louis Napoleon as Presi dent of the French republic. His position was precarious. He represented a great name and a great cause, which suggested, as his first step to stability in power, a fitting revenge for Elba, Waterloo, and St. Helena. The French army was panting for it ; and upon what else could Louis Napoleon rely than the constancy of the army? Tbe introduction of steam vessels of war bad also destroyed the security of England in her sea-girt isolation. She had become easily accessible to an army upon a fleet of steamers, at any hour of the night, against all the vigilance of her naval forces on guard. She felt this, and felt that a French army oi fifty thousand disciplined men once landed upon her shores, she had no regular military force, and no reserves in her untutored militia, competent to repel the enemy. In addition to these facts, the government of England well knew that the contagion of the French revolution of 1648 had crossed the channel, and that danger ousdieaflVctions among the working classes had developed themselves in widely extended revolutionary agitations. Need we refer to the stampede, and the twenty thousand spccial constables organized for the protection of London at the opening of the Crystal Palace? Thus our readers and the London Times can appreciate the momentous importance of those diplomatic papers brought from Paris to Lord Palmeraton by Chevalier WikofTin 1851. But this Is only one feature of his mission at that time. Nor was his object with Paim^rston to prepare him for a French invasion. Wikoff was a peace maker. Hts purpose was to bring about a friendly understanding be tween Louis Napoleon and Lord Palmorston and a friendly alliance between the two coun tries. He had another object in view ? a very delicate, extra diplomatic object of the highest possible importance. Napoleon Bonaparte, son of Jerome, was at that time, as the chief of the Mountain, in bad order with his cousin Loss, and there was no line of hereditary succession established for the family. Tiey were all de pendent. like other republican aspirants, upon ibe chances of a Presidential election. Young Napoleon, tben, as a genuiue repub lican, became solicitous for the particular sym pathy of the United States, and for an Ameri can matrimonial alliance, in imitation of his father. Wikoff had whispered him that Hon, Abbott Lawrence, the American Minister at London, had a beautiful daughter, and highly accomplished; that her father had some pros pects of the American Presidency, and that, better than all, he wjts a millionaire. Napoleon said try ? Wikoff was pleased to obey. The i flair was exactly in his line. The result was that Napoleon Bonaparte, shortly after this, crossed over to London, saw Miss Lawrence, was pleased with her, and she with him, while Wikoff was in ecstncies. This scheme, for a time promised tbe ultimatiin of ai interna tional marriage of the utmost consequence to toe i clutious between France and the United States; but the coup d'tlat of Dec., '51, gave a new and imperial direction to tbe fortunes of the Bona paites, changing the republican Napoleon to an heir apparent of the empire. And so, notwith standing the projected marriage between the Prince and Mi>s Lawrence remained an open question for some time after, it was ultimately abandoned by common consent, in view, pro bably, of a similar drawback to the imperial dissolution of the match between Jerome and ' Miss l'atterson, of Baltim ire. The third object of this visit of April, 18ol, of Wikofl' to London, was that diplomatic affair of his own with the ch? rating, wealthy, but cruel Mbs Gamble. His ti rs t oltject was to as ctnipiish a peace and no alliance between England and Franco; his second was an alli ance between Napoleon Conapirte and Mi^s Lawrence, and through this arrangement an everlasting friendship between the French and Amtrican republics. In the first he was suc cessful; in the second he might have been suc cessful but for Miss Gamble and the coup d'ftat I of Louis Napoleon; in the third, he was finally I brought to a dead halt by the coup d'itat of ' Mfcs Gamble at Genoa. There is jet a fourth item in thin , grand diplomatic nch.dule of Wikoff of I 1851, to be accountcd for. He had pro jected a diplomatic p ace mission tj Russia, { which might have been attended with the Lap | piest result*, but for his infatuation concerning Miss Gamble. She led him oil' to Gun jugged him, and thus abruptly cut short the fulfilment in person of all hU diplomatic enterprises. The J British Consul was the active agent of his im 1 prisonment. perhaps from a suspicion that Wi kofl'V proposed mission to Kus?ia involved a i coalition between France and the Czir against England. Such are the perils of the secret ser vice of the Foreign OQlce, when its agent has too many irons in the fire. Let it euflice that the good understanding brought aboct by Wikoff bet ween Louis Napo leon and Lord 1'almerston has resulted in the present alliance between F, lgland and France ? has made Louis Napoleon master of England and the at biter of Furope. Let it sullice that tliis Russian war was instituted through his mkiitcr, Lavalette, at Con-tantinople, by the French Kin|?eror. and that Eigland is inconti nently doinj? his work, and destroying her own strength In consolidating his empire. The fail ure of the proposed match between Prince Na polton and Mis* Lawrence wu not the fault of W.koff. We mutt charge it to Miss Gam ble sud the British Consul at Genoa. They, too, aro perhaps equally re sponsible in defeating WikotV's intend ed mission to liu'-sia, which might have resulted in a peaceable division between EDgland, France, Russia and Austria of the estates oi " the sick man'' of Turkey, instead of this bloody and horrible war. To sum up, as between the Chevalier WikofT and the incredulous London Timet, we come to thcBe conclusions ? first, that WikofT was tbe loundtr of the present alliance between Ejg- . land and France. Secondly, thit Miss G-unble in responsible for the los-< to us of another Boaa parte, fairly captured by WikofT; and tnirdty, and lastly, that Miss Gamble, in defeating the contemplated mission of WikofT to Russia, is responsible lor this dreadful Continental war. I One word more. WikofT is now here, and, bearing in mind bis scurvy treatment at Genoa, let Lord ! Falmf rtlon prepare for a belligerent alliaace \ between the United States and Russia. Beware ; of WikofT. | The Senatorial Election ? Value of Offi cial Pledges ? Never within the recollection I of any Am<-ric&n citizen, never since ih6 alli ance and confederation of the original States, has theic been such desperate, sordid and de termined efforts made to place any man in the United States Senate, as have lately been, aud now are, to re-elect William H. Seward. We have watched the game at Albany ever since the beginning of the session, and scrutinized the movements of the managers as they have proceeded , step by step. Not an hour has pass ed over their heads but some new schomc has been concocted, calculated to defeat the popu lar will ? that will so nndeniably expressed at the polls last November. What was that expression, and what caused it ? The truly national sentiment among the people of this State was aroused into action to prevent the further power of foreigners, the farther influence oi Catholicism. William H. Sewaid is the personification ot the evils which threaten the dissolution of this Union, whether it be on account of the slavery agitation or fo reign preponderance. He has produced more mischief, more alarm in relation to both these matters, than any political demagogue or sectarian agitator who ever dared to raise Mb voice in Congress. The people, therefore, fearing the awful consequen ces which would inevitably result from the continuance of that arch-diaorganieer, very justifiably took early measures to oppose him. Their efforts were crowned with abundant suc cess at the election, as was believed; and it was not until the meeting of the Legislature that any reasonable doubt arose on that subject. A majority of the whigs elected to the House of Assembly went to Albany pledged against bis election. They voluntarily made these 'pledges, previous and during the canvass. Had they not done so, not a soul of them would now be engaged in . the conspiracy to elect Mr. Seward. We here insert the names of those members of the House who, it is asserted, have violated their pledges, and went into caucus on Thurs day night last, and voted for Seward. They are ? J . Belmont, of Orange. D. W. C. Llttlejohn, of Or. B. H Hee.her, of Oneida. wego. N. C. Boynton, of Essex. D. M&Uory, of Genesee. E. W. Bushneil, of Colum- J. M*in, of Jefferson. bit. L. 8.

Thirty-seven in all. There are several who, besides being pledged, were especially instructed to vote against Seward. We give their names: ? Messrs. E. Cole, Messrs. Schuyler, Mr. Fitch was instructed by a public meet ing. There is an affidavit in the case of Mr. Jimmerson. Mr. Weed was instructed, in writing, to vote for Mr. Fillmoie,both in cau cus ard in the House. He now, having voted for him in caucus, declares he has done all he was pledged to do. To-day he seals his poli tical condemnation, by voting lor Seward in the House. Header, look at this picture. Here we have presented the names of thirty-seven men who have stood before their fellow citizens, and voluntarily declared, most emphatically pledged by their words, and some, it is s*id, by their oaths, that un der no circumstances, would they aid iu any manner, either by word, vote, or other deed, or be Instrumental, in returning Se ward to the Senate. Not a single one of them would now be intrusted with the power they possess had their constituents been aware of their true character. To day, this band of trained politicians will consummate their degradation. Every soul of them will, as certainly as they breathe th? air of life, be consigned to political perdition. Their masters at Albany will rejoice at the course they take, but the servants will be thrown off the moment they have been sufficiently used for the purposes of WPliam n. Seward. To-day, the spectators will witness these men, as they stand np in the Assembly chamber, and pro claim to the wotld their own political over throw. We might, in addition, expose the sin gular movements of several members of the other branch of the Legislature. We de gist, however, with thia simple remark ? that in our opinion, any Senator who re ceived the suffrages of some fifty thousand voters, in good faith, at the last election, has disposed of himself very cheaply to Seward, and, consequently, annihilated himself politi cally, by consenting to receive the presidency, pro tern, of the Senate, and the chairminship of the Seward caucus. The conspirators well knew their man? they flattered his vanity and secured his vote. The bait took remarkably well. The Illegal Lotteries. ? We publish else where a number of curious details in relation to the illegal lotteries now existing in New York. i*robably much of thece will be news to the authorities; until Mv. Wood became Mayor, those worthies frcre generally the worst informed people in the city ot what was going on. Now however that a new regiml appears to have been inaugurated, we trust the statement given elsewhere will not be entirely without fruit. We have laws again t illegal lotteries; shall they be executed or not? That Is the question. Thb CrrT Finds.? Some time since we p it a question to the Mayor and Corporation which Fitch, r lieu, Mallrry, May, Ptuyressnt, Terhane, Weed, Wells. Pickernon, Robinson, has aot been answered. We n peat it: Ib it or is it nottrae that the Macuauiea' Bwk, where tbe city funds are d< poaifcHi, has made Urge advances to the Chicago and flock Island Rail road, of which Mr. FJugg in Treasurer! Now, this if a very simple question, and admits of a very simple answer. If no eu h advance has I ecu made, let the Major wake the fact known, in order to allay the apprehensions now seri ously felt in many quarters. If ihe bank has lent money to tbe railroad, let us know all about it ior our own safety. Iliilrood bouds are bad property now-a days; it wilt bo too lale to cry out, if the ci'y loaea half a million or so. Concealment is sure to moke ma Hers worse. THE LATEST NEWS.
