At tight o'clock, when the doors were opened, the ?Jiall was ftlletf with a moat impatient and impolite CroTd. It was a thorough popular demonstration, to far as the democratic principle of taking care of one's pelf and psjijg no attention ts other peopW'n corns ace Boneerned. The platform was occupied by some of the principal liquor dea'ers in tho city. Messrs. Kobtrt lC?lly, T. J. Monday, (Member of Assembly,) Thomas Dunlap, Isaiah Rynders, and other w 11 fcnowo politicians, occu pied conspicuous places dti the platform. A military hand played the national airs. Mr. Richard French called tbe meeting to or.ler, and nominated Mr. P.

Tbe Chairman said that it was no* until lats in the afternoon of to-day that he was made .aware that he was to preside oyer the mtctlng. But he hrj previous ly determined to present an address and resolutions. He would, therefore, read tbem at once, and ask the patient attention of the meeting. He then read as fol lows:? tm.T.ov CiTir.Eps ? That crisis in our social freedom trbicb was solen Dly apjrotunceJ, even by the founder i of our libeity, af a kiirlni possibility, ui.d of whio'- wo were forew srned ly the pttri >tie i roscience of Wa.-ihingt anil Jefferton, ha* already become a frightful reality. We arj under the despotism of a taction. Truly did the "father of lis Country" prtvise the preoise chubvs and tendencies of tho crisis now arrived whan he memorably said, in hi* last patriarchal address, that "the alternate domination of one faction over at.other, sharpened by the spirit of icvengt i atur&l to party dissension, which, in difierent ages and countries, baa perputratedatue most horrid enormities, ia itself a lrichtlul despotism. but 'his leads, at length, to * more formal and permanent despotism. The disorder a and miseries wl icli result gradually iiclino theminda of men to seek security and ropone in the absolute power ot an individual; anil, sooner or later, the chief of ?tome prevailing faction, nitre able or more fcrtunat'J t han bis coin petitcr?, turnx this di?potifion to thepcrposes of his own elevation, on the ruias 01 public liberty." Such was the last warning of Washington. 'Jliiat of Jefferson *?) loss in reference to the -o ultimate results, and to executive usurpation, than to the idcutiual sit-tios of tyranny wiiieh we now so palpably realize, "The Jlxcoutivc power i < not By only noi my most prominent appr -heusl'in ; ? ho t \ ranny of the Legislature is really tho most to be feared." An 1 to the tame effect is tho premonition of the moat eminent and enlightened cf all torei^n writers upon our system ot government, when he stys, " If ever the freo insti tutions of Amcrioa be destroyed, ft will be by the unlimited Mil oritv ot the legislative majority, which may in a future time, drive the minority to desperation, and obli/e tliem to xeeort to physical fotce. AuarcLy will be tht result brought About by despotism.'' Whilo the two great political parties which hsvo hithorto con doc ted the go ttmn.ent of country, and itss-veral States n.aintuiiied their r-fpoctive organize :om ani po<i tions with: ut internal division, there was but xitttc dtu;e. ?1 such atrocities of legislation. Irom the temporary asoewi arcy of ei'Lcr Originating in the cabinet of Washington bin sell, in t! e democratic principles of Jefferson on the one side, and in the moro restrietive but equally patriotic views of Hamilton ou the other, they pretmed muth nf tuo cha racter and constitutional fldolity of their respective found ers, and fairly reprosnnt'-d 'he whole American people in embodying those distinctive tendencies of mild and ioo!in<, hy which all mankind, in fact, aro naturally classified aid distinguished. Jeaioi.ii and watchful of each otuer, ?-< com petitors tor popular iavor, neither rartj could commit any serious agression upon popular rights * ithor.t aruusi.n; the prompt nsiatance ot tho other: and enlightened d, sea isiun; the necessary product of such intellectual vi^i anco and emulous ri> ilry, kept the panplo well informed both as to their right* ana interests, and the insidious evils to which they wore exposed. It ii?, therefore, only by tho disruption oi their gteat po litical parties that a iroe peoplo cau incur tho dinger ot fan tional isffotisro. such as we now suffer, and as the poo pie have still further to apprehend l'orit is evident that tne freest people on tho car-h may became powerless and en Slaved under the domlnatiib of fiction, since it i. only by anion, destiuctive of faction, that their pow-.r cau be exert ed ana their liberties maintained. the pikers of govern ment, both lefts ative an I executive, aa> be wielded, as in this Stato, at tao r>reser.t time, by a minority at otico hypo critical and fanatical, trattOT. ub and tyrannical, narostnie edintae wildest vairaries of despotism, by any of those high considerations a ..d r> spon.ibilitiei wbich ooittrol tho notion of established parties. And tho minority thus inci dentally enaowtd with irresponsible powor, may bo as con tomjtiole in numbers as it is formidable in onorinlt; in proportion to the prevalence of psrty dissension, ?ud t..o number ?t factional candidates in tt e po.ittail Held. It ii even possible that the majority principle of government, which ia erroneously lupponea to constitute a i impregnable foundation for our repuolican system, may be sn outiroly subvert od and ro'ertod as to leave tho person ,1 and social rights, togethn with the proprietorial and bu?laes? interests of the most populous Stnt o in the Union, at the meroy of a fanatical faetion, numerically Interior .o the population of n single county, since its only ossantial title to supremacy is that, amid a multitude if factions, it shallnot be tie smallest of the small Nor Is there ar > security for personal rishts under such Circumstances, either in the federal or Sta'o confu tations, or in any organic law ot the land nnder the domination of au unscrupulous sect, at once arrogant and nefarious, whicn exi-rts its utmost intellect in devifing chioano constriutious oven of those constitutional provision;* which shield t lie rights they specify, what rational grounl of enufldenoo it th"ro that it ?rould respeet those u- ultittidino.i* unenu'atrst d ri hts. wliioh are icarcely protected even in general l<rms, and nrhicb, obvious ana inalienable as thosi of life and thought, wore not suppostd to need specific inourities among a peo ple so proudly plodded to freedom. The ansstr is already giveutn '.he actual events of the present period. Mot only are the constitutional rignta ot the people subverted, by Judicial and legislative clii^antry, tieyondtbe possibility of reparation for injuries already in llicted, but rights of person and property, hitherto held in violate by the worst t<rants of the old world, are openly mad Imperiously cenUd. Not only have we seen hi^h judi cial authorities detcend to the subservient absunlits of deciding that, althr Ufh a f ta'e han no authority to prohibit the sale of any article which a law ot t'onurtss msy sllow to be tm| orted . y<t it, ha'" a r?ht, not iner> ly to rj^ulate, but to absolutely jrithifit the sale ot the c >nt?n'? of tho packages in which the articles arrived, although th* con tents thus prohibited sre no other tnan the identical articles Whose sale is not to be prohibited . Not only have wo s 'en this judicial monstrosity fanatically lauded as a fair acid profound dlstibction, but made the ba'ls, h many of our ntates, of prohibitory laws, virtually denying th- rli'ht in terent in all men to d ink the beverages of t i.eir own choice, bj absolutely interdicting their sate Tor sueii a pur Bee. It is needless to say that the cinstrnetivii ri;ht "f tbe giilstuie thus to prevert the prtrogative of uiunoipal or folioc regulation into an ibsoluteinterdiet upon tho saleof any arttclc of established use and profcreice amont; a "r*c people, can t.ercr becorre so evideut and indisputable as the personsl ri^l t to use it. No political or fgHlative ma jority, however prepnniliratleir? no psrtin, a'.u>-.?, however deplorable? could infuse m ral aiuhori y into an set so es sentially despotic nnd unjust. It is cvidnit thst when an arbitrary edict of this kind is directed, (like tho recent fanatical law of this state > the sale of tbo?e spreeable and cordis', beverages ?hi"U have been In universal and immemorial use by all sivilixcl na tions, aod whieh are cherish, d by nearly all unnHind a< personal cemftrts and rofrsshmonts, eendueivs to st-clnl in tcrcourss and^once, and Indispensable to a liberal hospitality? beverages wh'ch have as noble us-1* ia the hand of friendship, ia the social 'ea?t snd In the public, as those gun.rous imi.ulses of our nature of whieh thov are the appropriate plcd*es and concomitants? it is eii/eist that whenever any pruhlbitory law is issuel sijain -t these. It must not only be a despotic mandate, ot. tracing the feel ints and rishts of a vast msj rity ot ov?y popn'ous cimmo nity but also become a came or emh?rra<tmeut and rnin to tar estendlnit bnsltiess intcreat* connected with their manufacture and calo by links of iuneparable depend ?nee How far that chsia of iai*re?Umay extend cannot he distinctly known until the eon??'sivw?ionk takes effect; hut its connect ions bsv* altea i> Ueu sensitivelr imiicatod In mimpcoM qQirttro, ooiBplicituy dwinod too fcrn^to to be sffet ted by its dissolution. Ihat the destructive forec of this lafamcui enae'ment will fall first snd most directly upon us-the various classes ot liquor dealers, eomprohoniled in the call of this meeting? Is evident from it? upefiftl protl?ioi*i for tntt pnrpr?*e.

Now we want all to lend as a hand? it la not the money we want, it la members? not only the meu, but the-r votes. If you should defeat thia law in every court in the country, you would hare gained merely a respite, or an armiatice in the war which would be t'ntwed when the Legislature te assembled.

Be replied that the old license nystera Is super seded by the new, with its own appropriate pen titles ; that the old penalties were not only specitie to the oh! system, but are inapplicable to the new extern, a* well became penalties cannot be extended by im plication, as because the new system bad its own specific penalties. That by an oversight of the le gislature tbe new penalties are superseded until that part of tbe act creating them bs comes operative that from May first, when exieting license* expire, until July 4th, no obstacle exists to the free *ale of liquor in this city, and that it can be sold the same a* any other ccmr.:ocity. And that for Punday selling, there is no penally, save the old eivil penalty of two dollar* sod fifty cents for a whole day's traffic, and which i* to be prosecuted and collected in a civil action by the Corporation Attorrsy.

Bo is zeaiouely devoted to tbe Franco Eugliih policy of ne gro. izing tbe Dominic in republic, and utiiting the whole ibland under the rule of Faustin, with himself as prlnoe ? being of mixed blood, of the Spanish lection This would suit tho preient views of France and Eng land, and every man in St. Domin.'o knows tbat their agt nts are at the bottom of this war of races, for thia bait smothered rebt.lion is a war to put down the white and to mount the negroes on their necks, and nothing else. Rumor.- of a movement among tbe blaclu, and the re turn of Bnez to power, as-I.ited by a French nod British squadron, were current months in advance, end at a consular dinner party an English officer, half seaa over, let slip the secret. He drank to "Baez and tho 15th of March.'' The 15th of March had hardly passed when thf British sloopof- war. Daring made Its appearance, fcni the baez men had assembled to open the ball, when they weie pounced upon, and their plan frustrated for tbe time. It remaius to be seen whether the snake is killed cr ocly scotched. Tbe Btez people do not appear to be at all cast down . A steamear and two French frigates, one the flag ship with an admiral on boaid, arrived a few flays after the Baez party w?re to have been in power, bat the admiral fovrd the lawful tfovcrnra?nt still in possession. Hi mU this unexpected tutn of atlairs by saying he had Lear>l (be did not elate bow or where he picked up his news) there was to be a leroiution in favor of tha Americans about the end of March, and he had com" to oppose it. As ridiculous as this excuse wa.t, the Domi bicac cabinet bad to accept it for truth, thoagh it was notorious that not one American of any grade a.' color was Implicated. There are about 6W American blnclts in the country ; but they are generally intelligent and industrious, and are proud of compaiing tbe condition .of colored people in the l 't<ited States ? even slave States ? with tbe poor derfli In Ifoyti and the British Nlands. They were not likely to lake part with men who want to drive out the Ame? ricabs, root and branch, and unite thia country with Hsjti. Tbe French were not long in showing their true eo lors. Among the conspirators arrested was a French tailor named EaMsangle, and the French consul pe remptorily demanded bin liberation from the Dominican authorities. They replied that the man had been takes for treason, and hai been examined by the Military Court and was fcund deeply Implicated. The consul having upwards of 100 French and English guns bearing upon the town to back him, became very much enraged and went to the Falacio, where the cabinet was in see don, to compel the immediate release of the French conspirator. Here words ciuld not express his rage. He tock a chair and smashed It in the Exchequer cham ber to give force to his meaning. The French Admiral did not tear his bair and break furniture, but he se coxded the consul's outrageous demand and talked caa non bails and bombardments to such an extent tbat tfca^ Dominican government had to give way and liberate thd criminal. Petit Jus'o, Prudencio, Balliste and Boix, and som* ether chiefs of the conspiracy, being still at large, tha government issued, March 31st, a ban/to, or proc lama tit n, informing tha public tbat whoever harbored er concealed these persons made themselves liable to all tbo penalties incurred by the traitors. In answer to thin proclamation, tbe Danish oonsul wrote to the govern ment that he had two of these persons under his dec and protection. By these facts you may judge for yourself what pert the European governments are taking with the black re volutionists here. The whites begin to feel they are a doomed lace in St. Domingo, and are trying to sell off and quit'the country before tbe worst come*. Some of tbo conspirators applied to the Amerioaa consul, but ho would not receive any of t'aem, and appears to steer clear cf all paitioipation in these troubles. YUMA. NKWSPAPm ACCOUNTS.
