The News. We continue to-iiay the publication of tbe Ostend Conference correspondence. Its importance will insnre an attentive perueal, and we therefore re frain Irom commenting upon tbe points newly de veloped until a more favorable opportunity. The steamer Pacific is now due witl later news from Europe. Stand by for ths grand democratic fusion demon sUaticn at Old Tammany this evening. A meeting of tbe ).rime movns in this aflair was held las', evening, at which all the preliminaries were com pleted. A mot g the speakers announced to ba pre sent are Qen. Cans and Mr. Donglaa. By telegraph we have received the results of mu nioipal elections in towns in this and several other Stated. There contests have been particularly aharp and exciting, and their effects are of more Importance than usually attend such stiuggles. In every instance, we believe, the question has been d stinctly dawn betwten the Kuow NoUiingUmand auti Know Nothlrgism. In this State municipa elections were held yesterday in Oswego and Au burn. In the former, the fusionists, composed o wh'gs and foreigners, succeeded in electing their candidate fcr Mayor by a handsome mijori'.y over the Know Nothing nominee. In Aubucn, howbvtr, the Know Nothings were success ful by a majoiity of two hundred over a candidate of a coalition formed of tag ends of all the old patties and tactions. At Rochester, Norwi h, Oxford and Shelburne, tbe Know Nothings were also successful. At Uti:a, the whig ticket was chosen, while at riyra u-te and Troy the fusionists triumphed. At New pott, Ky., the Ametican ticket was defeated. Throughout Massachusetts the Knew Nothings hate sustained their ascendancy, four fifths of the towns heard from having been carried by that party. At Detroit, Mich., a democratic Mayor ha* been rhoFen by a large majority. In Maine the Know Nothings have carried everything before them. The on w aid progress of the new party seems per fectly resistless. A despatch from Norfolk s'ates that tbe friends of the cfficers of tne sloop of war Decatur have given up all hopes of her safety. The D?;itur ?ailed from Norlolk on the 14th of list Juie lor ths Pacific static n, arrived at Rio Janeiro Aagnst 27, and sailed thene for her destination on the 2 1 it of September following. W hen out a short time she, in company with the steamer Massa husettH, en countered a hurricane of uonmal violence. Tae steamer put back to Rio for repairs, an 3 reported seeing the Decatnr during the storm, a full account of whi.h was published in tbe Hkbai.d of Nov. 16. Bince then she has n.?t been heard of. Valparaiso dates to the 15th Janua y, four months later thin the date ol the departure of the Decatur from II}, have been received, and they make no mention of her. There is good reason, therefore, for believlog that the Decatur foundered in tie gale alluded to above. She carried sixteen guns, was built at Brooklyn in 1839, and was of tbe same class a* the A Ibany, recently lost on the voyage from San Juan to ttts port. In the New York Senate yeste-day Mr. Owdnn, the Know Nothing successor of Gov. CUrk, intro duced a j:<int reso ntton directing our mom^er* of Congress to sustain a law extending the proba tionary term of naturalization to twenty one years, and providing that none but clti/.ens o' twenty-one years' residence sbali have the privilege to cx , ercise tfce right of voting. After considerable opposition, the 21st Instant wan a is gn<d for the consideration of this subject. The hill relative to tbe tenure of churci property was again discussed. As yet but one Bena^r has op posed this measure. The select committee has re ported a bill abolishing capital punishment. Soli tary confinement for lite is substituted for hanging, aid no convict shall app'y for a pardon until tie CYnrt of Appeals has ordered a new trial of the criminal. In the Assembly a bill was passed re di cirg all Honeyed transactions to federal currency ? t. bolls hi trf ttie cctiMsnptible and petty swioc ling pourd, shilling and pes ee system. This is a good tbirtr, and the Senate sh^n d act upon It without de'ay. Several other bills, of no special I nportince I owever. were also passed. The Know Nothing anti-administration organizv tion in New Hampshire Is miking an energetic ? Wort to succeed <n tbe spproa ihlngeiec'lon la that Hta'e. On Mot,d%y a large public mc&tmg was h?ld , at Nashua, and yesterday a c invention was held at Cjncoid, at which the utmost enUiuriaen prevailed.

Tbe Indiana legislature yesterday passed the vetoed State baik and Free bank bilk, and they are now lawB. A public dinner was to hive been given yester day by tbe citizens of Montreal to the Governor General of Canada. The Universal Democratic Republican Society met last evening, and resumed tbe discussion on tbe adoption of tbe late report on the state of the wcrking classes. The report was finally adopted under protest from Mr. Arbuthoot. A committee of three will introduce the paoei to the delegates of the Workingmen's Committee. The Historical Society held its rsgular monthly meeting last evening. Professor Greene read an iu tei eating biographical sketch of his grandfather, General Nathaniel Greene, of Revolutionary me moiy. At the meeting of the Board of Ten Governors, held yesterday, tbe resolution passed a: a previous meeting discharging, all the employes of the Board who were not citizens, was in effect nog* tivtd by tbe parage of a resolution of a totally opposite character, offered by Governor D.apar. There was considerable excitement manifested pending the pasiage ol the res ilution, and "San" was severely berated by Governors Draper and West. Tbe difficnlties with the Commissioners of Emigration was again the subject of a long report, which will be found in our account of tbe meeting published elsewhere. i ulm-Tlir Ontencl Corrt-apotidenre and Plat form? True Policy of the tfovcritinciit* The official correspondence of the Ostond conlercncc is coming out. It proves the Kub stuntiul correctness of the voluminous and ex clusive information upon the subject, published lrom time to time, through the columns of tlie New Yohk IIkuai.d, from October last dowu to the transmission of these Oatend papers to Con gress. The ail'ectcd mockery of our slow coach cotemporaries, the dissimulations of the Cabi net organs, and ihe incredulity of the House Committee of Foreign Affairs, are thus deci sively answered by these official documents. Fully satisfied of the sources of oar exclusive information all along, we have been patiently awaiting this contirmation of our statements lrom the files of ihe State Department. We have it and we are content. From these official papers the vacillating policy of the administration upon the Cuba question, from the first instructions to Mr. Soule down to the resignation of bis mission, is most strikingly exhibited. On the 23d of July, 1853, 'we find Mr. Marcy chalking out a bold, fearless and dashing programme for our Minister to Madrid. He is to require the most explicit explanations touching the movements and designs of England and France, and, as the vtry least that we can ask, a complote re construction of the government of Cuba. In the same month corresponding instructions are issued to Mr. Buchanan concerning the movements nnd designs of England. On the lltl> of March, 1864, Mr. Soule is instructed to demand immediate redress for the Black War rior outrage. On the 17th of the saiue month be is ordered to require forthwith $300,000 in demnity, cash down, aud not to mince the matter. Spain muBt pay at once or abide by the consequences. On the 3d day of April Mr. Marcy is apprehensive of a design on the part of England to Africanize Cuba, and he thinks the time has come to make a bid for the island. If Spain will not sell, then she is to be encour aged to provide for the independence of the colony. On the lfith day of August last, our Premier recommends a joiut conference " at some con venient point, say Paris," between Messrs. Bu chanan, Mason and Soule. Shortly, thereafter, Mr. Dudley Mann, Under Secretary of State turns up in Paris, " on a private visit," and, following his arrival, certain mysterious dinner parlies take plncc across the channel in Loa don, between George Sanders, Kossuth. Mazzi ni, nnd other progreflfive republicans of that reboot. There is evidently a grand, positive and most important movement afoot, which may involve the most tremendous issues to France, England, and the United States. After beating alK)iit the bush for some time, the proposed diplomatic conference is com menced at Ostcnd, in Belgium, on the 10th of October, continued there on the 1 1th, but is re moved on the 12th, perhaps to avoid inquisitive curiosity, to the historical Aix-la-Chapellc, in Prussia, where the consultations between Messrs. Buchanan, Mason and Soule are con tinued from day to day until the 18th of Octo ber, upon which day the results of their delibe rations are communicated to Washington (in the care of Mr. Sickles, official Secretary of Mr. Buchanan), in the most remarkable and impor tant diplomatic despatch of the nineteenth cen tury. Ihis despatch is a faithful and complete em bodiment of the Cuban policy of the adminis tration down to that time. I was adopted in ( the firm belief of a full and unqualified sup j port from Washington. The joint ambassadors I propose an offer of one hundred and twenty millions for Cult** or an advance of twenty millions upon the cash equivalent proposed by President Polk. Tteey think the time has ar rived for action? they are confident of success. They think Spain will b? willing to sell, because i Cuba naturally belongs to the United States; be cause we must have it and can't do without it; because the sovereignty of Spain is menaced constantly by the dangers of insurrection; be came the island doop not pay expenses; '<ecause its transfer to u would result in the greatest commercial benefits to Spain and all concern ed; because the Spanish treasury is bankrupt, and must have money; aid because we cannot, I do What yff may, guarantee the safety ofOnba against the filibuster*. The joint commission | ers say that this ' is an uge of adventure, in which restless and darJog spirits aboun.l in ! every portion of the world," and wee moot guard sgainst them. These are strong points ot this Important despatel, and they are dove tailed into a platform t?t remarkable symme try and solidity. Nor is this all. The cr am of the affdr is in j the altt rna'-ive proposed. We desire to be I just? we despire this tfcfng of Lnd stealing; we ' defire to be magnanimous, but this in no matter for trifllDg. Our diplomatic triumvirate say ? and mark what they say? that "after we shall have offered Spain a price for Cuba far be yond its present value, and thit shall have been refused, it will then be time to consider the qutstinn?Does Cub * in the possession of Spain seriously endanger our internal peace, and the existence of our cherished Union?" And then they add: "Should thu question be answered in the affirmative, the n by every law, human ami divine, we shall be justified in wresting it from Spain, if we possess the power." Such ia the ultimatum of those con ferences at Ostend and Aix-la-Chupelie. We have said that it agrees with all the instructions of Marcy up to that time. Why, then, was this policy so suddenly set aside and reversed by the administration? Why those counter instructions to Mr. Soul? on his return to Spain, which provoked his indig nant resignation? Why this sudden change in the wind? It was the anti-Nebraika reaction of the October and November elections that frightened off our trembling and shrinking Ex ecutive ? it was a jealous fear, on the part of Marcy, of the prospective ascendancy of Buchanan as the tfiief of this Osteud pro gramme, which bduccd our Premier iustantly to reject it. Thus is our previous information upon this subject sustained by the oQicial dates, facts, acts and documents. The important question next recurs, what is 1 now the manifest policy of the administration? It has been repudiated upon its domestic spoils system - it has been prostrated to the dust upon the Nebraska bill. It has nothing left upon which to rccover itself but a bold and popular foreign policy, and nothing but Cuba upon which to rest it. The time is auspicious? it is the golden opportunity. France and England, absorbed in their terrible struggle with Russia, are at our mercy. At this juncture, even the prospect of a suspension of our friendly relations with the Western Powers wonid probably derange their commercial, manufacturing and finuLcial sys terns beyond recovery. A rupture with us would certainly destroy them. The sensation at the Bourse inst. ntly following the news of the affair with Mr. Soul6 at Calais, indicates the paramount necessity to the allies of peace with the United States. A rupture with us, hazardous to them at any time, would now in" volve the peril of the greatest disasters to the ruling elements of both France and Euglaad. They dare not at this crisis, in any event, or upon any i-sue involved in their "hippy ac cord," break the peace with this republic. The only hope, then, for Mr. Pierce is, to fall back upoa the Ostend and Aix U-Ch&pelle platform. And this is the time. Tne continued sovereignty of Spain over Cuba is "dangerous to the peace of our cherished Union." It is the present policy and the purpose of Eugiand aud Frbnce to make it so, and Spiin is but the in strument of their schemes. Moreover, a mighty popular revolution is at work in our midst, carrying with it right and left the masses of the people. There must be a diversion to ar rest it, or, by the next fall elections, our unfor tunate administration will be utterly aban doned by the people and by Congress. This Ostend platform, if adopted, will, on the con trary, excite a tremendous reaction, and in se turiiig us'the island of Cuba, will give to the administration a powerful lift for the succea ion, and a substantial claim upon posterity. Li t our Executive reflect upon the position of our affairs with Spain, the position of Eng. and and France, the danger of delay, and the extreme demands of his own position, and throw hiiaMtf boldly upon the Buchanan pro gramme and upon the country. If M*rcy be an impediment, let him retire. What is a man or two when the democracy, the administra tion, Cuba and the Union are at stake? Mayor Wooi> and Ills Official Duties. ? The business of the Mayor's office appccrs to be increasing daily, if we consider the amount therein transacted, independent of its charac ter. The complaint book occupies the attention of one person exclusively, and he finds it almost impossible to record all the complaints present ed to him; the presence of a police Justice is required from ten o'clock till three, for the ex amination of criminal cases, and in addition to these about half a dozen clerks arc constantly employed, while about the same number of policemen are detailed to attend to the outdoor business. From the time the Mayor arrives till two o'clock, the hour at which he leaves, the office is crowded with complainants of all de scriptions. A woman charges her husband with baviug deserted her; a son makes a complaint against his father for ill-treatment; a servant accuses her employer of defrauding her of her wages; quarrelsome neighbors appeal to him to settle their disputes; mothers cull upon him to punish the seduicrs of their daughters, and shirt sewers to force their employers to pay them their wages. Over none of these cases has the Mayor the least control or jurisdiction, and when ever he acts upon them in his official ca pacity, he transcends the limits of his author! ty. All such complaints can only be decided by the regularly constituted civil tribunals, and by due legal process. Mr. Wood knows this, and in assuming to act upon them he ex ercises a power and authority which may he at tended hereafter with the most injurious effects. He has. in the exercise of his legitimate duties, a wide field for the display of his abilities, without undertaking to decide upon charges of fraud against employers, or family quarrels. For his exertions iu suppressing the Sunday liquor traffic, he is entitled to all praise; but there is much more to be done before the work o! leform is accomplished. We were promised clean streets as soon a? the sweeping machines arrived from Philadelphia, yet they have been here for several weeks, and the present condi tion <4" the city would disgrace the worst ad ministration we hive ever had. Lut Mayor Wood keep within the limits of his authority as prescribed by the la*, and he will have er.oujjh to do without int. rferlng in nutters ovi r y- hich he ha? properly no control. Tiik Lakt Know Nothing Manifrs'to ? We publish elsewhere a circular signed J. W. Iiaikcr. the President of the Know Nothings ia this State, to the Stata Council, containing va rious alln?ioris to their past history and future prospects, lie says that the strength of the Order in May, did not exceed .">,000 in this State and 10.000 in the Union. Now he speaks of the 0i>0 councils in the State, and coniidintsy asserts that the party is invincible. Ktcreant meml?ers have been expelled, and this appears to the rcs:>lve of the Order In all tasea in future: meml<ers of the Legislature who hitvt ? proved treacherous to their cause" are to be deprived of the power to injure in future. Altogether the document is important and deserves a perusal. The Break-op at the Opera. The comedy in Fourteenth street having m&de way for a drama, in which tenors, bassi, musi cian*, candle-snn tiers, and prime donne, take the first parte au natural, and the unfortunate mana ger, Mr. Bull, is not only ruined, but is sa vagely abused, and mercilessly satirized ? we may moralize a little ou the event. From all accounts it appears that the convulsion which led to the break-up was occasioned by the want oi bannony existing between the manager and his performers, as well as among those person ages themselves. When they should have sung, they fell to quarrelling; and discord, in any sense, is ol course fatal to musical enterprises. First one card app -ared, then another; and so on until the mauagem nt, apparently exaspera te.! by accumulating proofs of insubordination, and wearied of losing money, despaired of im provement and closed the concern. Tne facts are to be found in the city journals. Events constantly repeat themselves, and the operatic drama of March, 1855, is nothing bat a repetition of another operatic dram* which was played at the Italian Opera Ilome when Mr. Fry was manager. On that occasion, the artists quarreled with the manager and with each other. First, Madame *nfli published her card, just as Madame Veitvali did the other day : then manager Fry made a speech, as manager Maretzek did at the Academy. Then , more cards, speeches, quarrels, in both cased; incessant waut of money; finally, in both, with perfect resemblance, a general smash, and fright ful wrangling among the mutilated fragments j of the troupe. Here the difference begins, j When Smash the First took place, it so hap ( pened that the Herald was the only jour j nul which thought it worth while to chro nicle the death of the Opera, and report the last dying speech and confession of the culprit. The other journals observed that | commendable discretion which they so often practice when we feel bound to publish impor tant news. Raging over his failure, Mr. Maua | ger Fry sought a victim ; and finding no one , so handy as the journal which had given noto ! riety to the facts concerning his Opera, he in j stituted an action for libel against us, demand | nig of us a bonus of twenty thousand dollars to | con. ho). > iniii for his managerial losses. Snii.eii me Second has been luckier in the matter of biographers. Several journals have thought lit to report it with all its incidents. In our Seward cotemporaries we notice espe cially a full md complete account of the scene at the A' a-Vmy 0f Music, whioh ought to atTord Mr. Manager Bull ample matter for cogitation. litre are several papers which state posi tively that he has broken down; that ho has been cheated, robbed, ruiaed; nay mire, that his character has been destroyed. If Mr. Mana ger 1- ry could persuade a jury to give him $10,000 for what we (aid of him, surely Mr. Manager Bull can niuke a small fortune out of all these libels. We cainot of course estimate his losses, but it appears that eight thousand dollars went in two slices; a single newspaper would reimburse this amount. But by charging so much for libels on his pocket, so much for libels on his heal, and so much I or libels on his heart, a much larger sum might be obtained, and Mr. Bull might be once moro a rich man. We commend the sub icct to bis thoughtful consideration. I Meanwhile fresh attempts are to be made to set the Opera on its legs, and it is said that Mr. James I'halen, whose interest in tbe building is large, will undertake the direction of a new company there, to be composed of the remain* of the old one. Other rnmors ascribe the ap pointment as manager to the Chevalier Wikoff who aprears always to be turning up wbeu most wanted. WikofFB antecedents are promi ? Htig. lie managed Fanny Etasler very succes fully ; managed Lord Falmerston ; mmaged Louis Napoleon, and nearly managed hi* c u sin and Abbott Lawrence ; managed the pross of Funs, and only failed when he tried to man ago Miss Gamble who appears from all ac counts to have been wholly unmanageable Where could a more likely manager -or the Opera be found? For the rest, a, t. success bat can never be hoped we fear s. long as Italian artists, even without a European repu tion, expect salaries higher than star actors TV hen Italian tenors and soprani consent to sing for the same salary as they receive in Eu rope, the Italian Opera tniy be successful here; j till then it will always be precarious. The Great Tammany Re-union.? A Word ok 1 | Advice. ? The groat Tammany Hall love-least, I j for the reunion ol the democracy, comes oil' to ! night. A host of distinguished speakers are i to be present from various parts ol the country, j The occasion, it is expected, will decide the I fate of the party uot only iu this State but : throughout the Union, as a cohesive and living j organization, or us one that bus existed, but j it- henceforth divided, <linbanried and defunct. Wc presume that there will be no lack of pa j triotism on this occasion, that we shall i have a plentiful outpouring of democra- j tic principles and Baltimore resolutions, and i the doctrines of Jefferson and J.ickson, ! i and constitutional and State rights, and all | that; but something more will be needed than I j hackneyed and windy democratic abstractions. ! Oon the democracy be reunited upon the ad- i { ministration and its spoils policv? Can the ' hardthclls be gathered into the wigwam upon any such expedient? Manifestly no. Can they be reunited upon their old broken-down Baltimore platforms in the midst of the existing popular reaction throughout the country ? No Can this spontaneous uprising of the people un der the quaint disguise of Kuow Nothings be arrested by a rehash ol all the democratic reso- ' I utions and speeches of the last hundred years ? j No. If y( u would reunite the democracy, here and 1 elsewhere, if you would divert the popular current to your cause, if you would save the administration and make it useful to the party. ! you must give the party something to stand upon. Old i?suos are obsolete; all th?? new ones afloat have been monopolized by the Kuow ' Nothings, except Cuba. That is an open ques tion. lint the crisis for action has come, is here, and may soon be passing away. If are wait another jua r Culm inuy be Africanized order fhe machinations of France and Knulaud and m<ide another Ilayti. when its annexation would l.e utterly out of the question. Toe platform 'aid down by Me*1- rs Buchinan, Ma ? on and Soule at A<x la Coapellq is the true puliey for this Tammany Ilall reunion. Let them adopt that platform, and nrgo it | strongly upon the adminis' ration, and a popu lar demociftHc movement will be started which , i will be perfectly astounding. Nothing can re 1 feist it. It will spread over the country like a , lire in the dry prairies, crackling and roaring ahead at the rate of forty miles an hour. Cuba j mutt be ours. This is the universal sentiment ' from Boston to New Orleans. Here is a plan, plain and above board, and sure as fate. The { administration set out upon this plan; but it has been scared off. Give Mr. Wise a lift ? : give the administration a lift ? bring it to the mark ? rouse up the democracy as the Cuba party, and it will spring into life and action. All other eiptdients to give the party vitality will be the vain efforts ot galvanism. The Aiz-la-Chapelle manifesto is the card for Tammany Hall. Couldn't have anything better. Let the meeting act accordingly, and make a living and national sensation. Try Buchanan's policy in a bold da?h for Cuba. Oh! that old Hickory were now alive. The Courier and tiik European Powers. ? The Courier and Enquirer contradicts our statement that Lord Clarendon has never re tracted the language used by him in reference to this country and the Western AUianc; and reiterates its belief that his lordship wrote a letter explaining that, in saying what he did, be had no intention to refir to the United States or Cuba. In making this statement the Courier instructs its readers that the editor of this journal has been constantly imposed upon of late. Our cotemporary is in error. Thin jourLal has not been misinformed or imposed upon; as the editor of the Courier would know if bis time bad not been so much tuken up of late with dining with lords and other great people. We have indeed been accused often enough of publishing false news; but as it in variably turned out in the end to be true, our accusers have seldom stuck to the same accusa tion for more than a week or two at a time. Our news of the Mexican treaty was pro nounced forged, and we were soundly rated for publishing it, until the documents arrived, and confirmed all we had Baid; and our acoount of the Ostend Conference was discredited even by the government, until they too learnt the sub stance of the Ministers' report. So now. the Courier disbelieves our telegraphic mes sage stating that an autograph letter has been received from the Czar. We believe that our correspondent stated the truth; and are content to leave it to time to test the question. Apropos of false news, some time ago the Courier let the world into the secret that Sebastopol was to be taken on or about New Year's day. Our accounts from the Crimea which are several weeks later, strange ly enough make no mention of this important ? event. If the editor of the Courier was so widely mistaken on this point, how can we believe his statement in reference to Lord Clarendon's letter; which stands alone in oppo sition to every other authority ? Had he not better correct his own blunders before he as sumes to cbide those of others? tub latest news. BY MAGNETIC AND PRINTING TELEGRAPHS. Important from Washington. SOULE AMD THE I*RKSII>ENT ? THE BLACK WARRIOR OUTRAGE- TUB BH1UADIER 0KNERAL?niP ETC. Washinuton, March 6, 1865. Before Mr. Soulc left the United Stat#*, he communl nicated his viewM fully in writing to the President m to the necessity of the acquisition of Cuba; and it was only because of the acquiescence of the President in the views to expressed that he accepted the mission. This corres pondence not bring embraced in the call by Congrees, lias not been sent in. Mr Soulc was instructed peremptorily to demand t attraction for the Black Warrior outrage, and to "enter nto no argument " Scarcely three months elapsed alter these explicit instructions before he received a de- patch from Mr. Marcy, of over eighty pages, entering into An elaborate argument on the Black Warrior alTair, and directing him to change the terms of the peremptory demand into an argument This is but one instance of the baoking and filling which characterized the con temptible policy of the prerent administration. There is no doubt the OstenO Conference was suggested by Mar:y, under the impression that Buchanan and Mason would adopt the old fogy side of the question, and thui check mate Soule. Marcy 's reply to the joint despatch doe* not attempt to combat any of the points advanced, but limply announces that the views of the administration have undergone a change, and directing Mr. Soule to re pair forthwith to Mtdrid and ignore his former proceed ings. Ihe sum suggested in the joint despatch to be offered to Spain was one hundred and twenty millions. The British government by some means obtained infor mation as to the contents of the joint despatch, and it was through the influence of that government that the debate took place In the Spanish Cortts in which the an nouncement was made that the sale of Cuba would ba a ' national dishonor." The excuse the adminis t ration will set up through Its organs is, that the joint despatch was not sufficiently explicit as to the course to be adopt ed. Absurd as such a defence may seem, It is to be cairiedout. language could scarcely be stronger than that used in the despatth in question. a rumor prevails tbat Jefferson Davis, Secretary of War, is to get the new Brigadier Generalabip. Such an appointment will be a gross outrage upon the intentions of Congress in creating the position.

In offering the proposition, be ai-ked that its consideration be made the special order for Thursday. It was finally agreed to make it the special orJer for Wednesday, the ^lst instant, immo 'lately after execu tivo ressinn. As Senator (Joodwin bears the reputation of being an intelligent and able delator, and a? i; is the first time of his speaking in the Semite? and wili lively be the last ? an audience will no doubt, be collected of many hundreds to listen to an exposition of some of " Sam's" peculiar doctrines lb'!

Mr. Crosby followed iu defence of the Catholics, libor ing to show that all the bills which the legislature may puss cannot interfere with church discipline. [This did Dot appear as exactly appropriate, as the bill betore tbe Senate relates only to the holding i f real estate, a ttm poral matter tntirely.J There was no vote taken upon the bill; only one Sena tor bss jet spoken sgalnst it, still it must be trlet in the political tuinace, ami if the party divide agiiBst it. in order to secure tlie Catholic vote, 'it will bs kille 1 In the House, if it does pass the Senate. Has Mr. Putnam re flected upon this t several oi tne reporters and lett?r writs re from the capital have been "hauled over the coals" in the House during tbe session, whether for justifiable cause or otbeiwite, the "deponent" knoweth not. This morning Mr. O'Keefe discovered a paragraph in the linns of yes terday, wbich reflected upon bis conduct as a member, and ho called tbe attention 01 the House to it, upon a privileged question. The article speaks of the motion uia'le by Mr. O'Keefe yesterday and carried, asking to discbarge tbe Judiciary Committee from tbe further con sideration of the New York Police bill, and that it b? re leireil to the city delegation. The article goes on as Mr. O'Keefe read: ? "Mr. O'Keefe I think you will search tbe books in vain for a justification of sucli trickery, and I know you have doomed youiMlf and guined onl.v a temporary success. Buffoonery 4a sometimes tolerated tor the amusement it af fords ? bombast mi eloquence is commonly endured ? but deception and fraud will lose you the confidence of your associates, and the respect ot all men " Mr. O'Keefe said he rose to c<1l the attention of the House to this matter, and to vindicate himself from th? fiagranc wrong committed <>n his personal character, and |< renounced the above false in every particular. Tliu< police bill was smothered in the Judiciary Committee by a trick ? that committee desired to have nothing to do with it. He then lead an extract Irom Mayor Wool's lettei, w hen ' Mr. Boynton called to order and stated that he was not discusing tbe question of privilege. The Chair (Mr. blatchrord ) ? The point of order il well taken. Mr. I'ettj moved that pern ;ss ion be given Mr. O'K. to proceed. Mr. O'Keefe? I have only another paragraph to read. Which he gave, in which Mayor Wood intimates bis inten tion of resigning if the police bill pastes. He continued speaking: ? The "Judiciary Committee did not want to examine the police bill, and upon the > assurance of Mr. Stuyvegant that it was all right, tbey reported it. Tlie oofy place where tho bill ought to go. was to the New York delegation, und that was the motion he made, and wan unani mously carried. He denied ever using any deception. On the floor of tbe House, or anywhere else, no man can accuse him of practising fraud. He believed he pos sessed as much frankness as any gentleman oa the floor. His honor no man ever quectl< ned, anJ no one dure do it here. He characterized the article as false from begin ning to end. His only purpose was to assist tbe Mayor of New York in his eflorts at placing the city under good government. Tbe matter then dropped. To-morrow bting executive day expectation is on tip toe with regard to appointments. Nothing is yet known as to tbe certainty of tbe h?rt<or muste-s.
