After the uaual preliminary business ? resolution wai offered .authorizing the Briggs Committee of Invest igation into the nativity of Chief Matsell, to employ addition* counsel to aid the committee in their prosecution of re fractory witnesses. Upon this resolution a debate sprang up, which re sulted in laying the resolution upon the table. The Board then proceeded to the third reading of bills, ' after which a motion was made and carried to reconsi der tbe above resolution in regard to the Brigga com mittee. Tbe resolution being again before the Board, Councilman Mather took tbe floor. He aaid he waa in favor of bearing out the committee in their rights, &c. ; be wax in favor of carrying out ths law, no matter what the law was. But be was opposed to the resolution as it was presented, inasmuch as it was the duty ef the Corporation Counsel to assist this committee. The Councilman moved tbe resalnti#* w referred back to the Committee of the Whole for amend ? meat Councilman Gray sustained the views of Councilman Mather. Councilman Jackson also suggested sending the reso lution back to Commit'ee of the W hole, because he did not like to give the Briggs committee unlimited power in tbe employment of counsel. They might send to Wsnhicgton. Albany or Kamschatka for counsel, and run the city into unwarrantable expense.

Pursuant to our statement in Tbureday's paper, we five today the folio wing Interesting correspondence, which bu taken place between Mr. Fay, Resident Minis ter In Swltserland, and Fernando Wood, Mayor of this city, ob the subject of shipping foreign paupers and con rlcts to this port: ? The Hon. Febkaudo Wood, Mayor or the City and Coubtto* New loan:? Sir? I perceive that dissatlsfaotlon hi felt? and very natu rally? in New York and other American cities, la oense QDcnoe of a prac lice believed to be adopted by certain Euro pean governments, tf shipping tlielr paupers and criminals to our shorss. On my arrival in Switierland my atteatloa was attraoted to this subject, and I endeavored at the ear liest opportunity to remove the abuses complained of, as far astliey existed in tbe country to the government of whioh I am accredited. Last winter 1 made a formal complaint to the President ol the Swiss Confederation. I met on his part sad on the psrt t f tbe Federal C'uncil a frank co-opera Jtloo. My note produce J a circular addressed by the federal government to each of the cantonal authorities, ot which 1 hail the honor to forward you aoopr, and of which, in oass of SLCCiilent, a duplicate Is annexed. The government of Unter waldrn bss communicat?d to me a written promise that no tYooeedings of this kind shall ever take placs in that Cen tra A number of other Cantons bavo given the aane as su/anee, and I have reason to believe tb?ilr example witl be folIei?ea ly every one. I have requested teat tne same guaranty may be offered by thrcommuneser counties of the Canttni. The correspondence will be fooud on file fit the "MSS? forTbeso ansuranoes, I have promised to ask due forbearance with reitard to a tee suddon application of se vere rales, and that such reflation}, when suddenly ndoptedU may not be put in fore? against Swiss citiieas *The'oonort!on oVuiese abuses is wknnwledged to be lust and necessary, and tbsre is every disposition to make them. ?? tar as the 8*wi?s authorities are oooeemcd. I think I can promise for them a sincere determination te remove them entirely, and tliat they will speedily cease. On the.?*her hand, ltris desirablo to- accomplish our purpo?o, asfar, by reason ratLsa Uian throats, without creating U1 teeHag and without unnecessary deriBjwwfint of ^ natural ooalthy emigration which follows ? law of Providenee, and may con tinue, under wise restrictions, a sonroe of our national pros perity, and an advantage to the onhanpy and opprewse* populations of Burope. There is also s->me linger ot torn loif from our shoses to Algiers, Australia. Brssil or other points, in contemplation by parties Interested bete, many Swiss, who, it not rieb, are far from being paupers. I wish to make thie explsnation toyou, sir, principally in defenoe of Switzerland, whoso efforts to da what Is right are designedly misrepresented by many interestod or badly la fotmcd rersoDi On one point, particularly, is r mi* npprcl enslon. fir.. : the custom of shipping emigrants at State cist. Numbers of Swiss, on leaving their oountry, receive a bum of money from to? county authorities, witn* out being paupers. It happens in this way: A part of the soil belongs to the oomuiunes, and eyery member has a oertain property iu it. Although tbe Swiss enjoys the pri vilege of expatriation, he does not lose the rights of nation ality, except with consent oven by foreign naturalisation. When ho emigrate#, therefore, he soils theso rich ana re ceives in return from the oommunal authorities a sum ot money? not an elomosynary donation, but the payment of a debt, or an equivalent tor value received. I fear there have been abugOB of the kind in question, ana I shall use every pos?ib)e effort to pat an end to iliesn. Hut the above explanation will show that they have probably i?Xjm atly 't'o be desired that tbe subject of emigration one of the gioatcst movements to be l'eund In history, and the true meaning and consequenoes cf which are misunder stood by mini- could bo in a greater degree plaoet under the control of governments, and made the subject ot treaties, founded upon principles of international interests and Christian truth In this way, much greater abuses might be corrected, untold lettering prevented, and vast good effected. That the readiness ot our sister Kepub lio to listen to any oauie of complaint suggested by us may be known and appreciated, I yenturo to ask, sir, that you will publish this explanation. ..... . t. I have the honor to be. sir, with Uie highest consideration, Tour obt. servt., TUKO. S. FA\ . MAYOR WOOD'S KBPLY. Mavor'x Ornoa, Now York, May 8, 135S. Sir? I am in reoeipt of a letter from you, without date, received per last European mail. I had before been advised of the desire manifeeted l.y you to pioloct this country from the evils, and our naturalised citizens troa the ?dium of the immigration to our shores of certain classes who are detri mental to the morals and well being of our people. The authorities, and particularly onr foreign population lrom the Herman States, should thank you for your oxer Hons to this end, so far as your influence upon the govern ment of Switierland is ooncerned. and that government has commended Itself to our good opinion by its promptness la complying with your request. In reply to what is stated in your letter now belore me, relating to the reception of emi grants. and asking duo forbearance with regard to too sud ?'n application of severe rules, and that suoh regulations, when suddenly adopted, may not be put In force ? gainst Swiss citizens without timely notioe, I have the honor to say. that so far as Is knowa to mo, there Is no disposition in this country io resort to injurious or oppres sive measures against the Swiss or any other emigrants. No change is contemplated, exoeptit be for the better protection of their interest and welfare; and if n? obange la made by the authorities tu their disad vantaae, you will agree with me that every right or favor wbleh hospitality or humanity can dic tate is well secured to him. Indeed, onr own native citizens, when reaching this city from distant sections of the Union, do not receive the kindly aid whioh is constantly and dili gently exercised for the foreign emigrant. A large number of onr city police, at great expense, E?ve boon detailed espe cially tcr their prote:tlon, without the treasury deriving one dollar in return, from any quarter whatever The State has organized a Uoard of Commissioner* whose exelnilve duty It Is to loek after their weltaie, without any teouniary consideration to the gontlemen comprising it. > umerous private and public institutions, not only watch over and shield them, but provide employment and informa tion with no other reward than that whioh philanthropy furnishes; and no Inconsiderable portion of my own time U devoted to ihe same objeet. .... No country has thrown around the exile the ian? ?ale guards or offered te him the lame advantage*. Aitho United State* if the molt favored nation, so has tbe foreign emigrants become its most favored people: and so far ?? their reception and proteoti jn when arriving here is con cerned, I apprehend there is no disposition to alter this course towards tbeni. It is proper, however, to add, 'that while thU is our policy generally, we are noting* of these governments who, in courtesy and gratitude, force paupers. 1 his we condemn and shall aot be longer tolerated 1 countries, dliqualifled eitharby tioa from, tbe rights of cltus?J them here.

I reply to the Qrst question, there is no new power conferred upon you by the section quoted By the pre sent chatter of tbe city, title 3, sec. 11, subdivision 2, it is made your duty to be vigilant and active in causing the laws and ordinances to be duly execute! and en forced, and you are clctbed with ail the authority and power of a police magistrate and Justice of tbe l'etoe, in addition to whioh, by title 2, chap 2 of part 4 of tbe Re vised Statutes, vol. 2, page 88P, Uenlo edition, your du ties aa magistrate are more particularly defined. When a complaint is made to you on oath that a criminal of fence has been committed, it is your duty to issue a warrant, and proceed in tbe manner therein pointed out. To tbe second section, under the charter of the city you are " the chief executive officer of the city," and, as such, may issue such lawful orders to tbe police as the exigency of tbe case may require. 1 would nit ad vise the issuing of orders to arrest except on complaint on oatb, and then bj warrant. My experience has taught me tbat tbe power which the police have to arrest persons in the actual commission of misdemeanors, ought not to be exercised except ia cases of emergency; the policemen are too apt, when exercising this power of arrest without warrant, to act indiscreetly, and, in the event of an acquittal upon tbe charge, they render themselves liable to actlflns for asrault and false Im prisonment. To tbe third question I reply, that all violations of tbe excise law are declared a misdemeanor, and the police men have the authority, by tbe 12th section of title 0 of tbe city charter, to arrest all persons in tbe actual com mission of misdemeanors; this power I advise to he ex ecuted only when emergencies require it, and upon a sure case. Respectfully, your obedient servant, N. F. WARING. Our Albany Corrrapoikdeitce. Alhamy, May 7, 1855. The Trail t in Liquor until th* Fourth of July? Ordinance oj the Common Council ? Liquor Barf Cloned on Sun dnyt ? Heavy Sum for hnforving th? Prohibitory Law? High Prospect of Taxei. Oar corporation father* have decided that free trade in all manner of intoxicating drink* will be permitted until the fourth of July. A* no licence in to be granted, and bo money paid therefor, there will be a loan to th city of fifteen or twenty thoaiiand dollars directly, and hundred* of thousand* remotely. An ordinaneu ha* been adopted, re affirming a repealed act regulating the ?ale of liquor* during nix day* of the week, and strictly fsrbidding it* a&le, unless to lodger* or psrsons actually travelling, on Sffnday. A Urge portion of the drinking shops had their front door* closed on Sunday, for the ft ret time since the old charter of Albany wax granted by Governor Dugan, dome two hundred years ago. It in ta be hoped that not only the 'hilling bouse* will adhere to t fain voluntary closing on Sunday*, but that til the two. penny mmmerien about the dock* and back street* will be compelled to "do likewise." However wicked and Sabbath-breaking the Albanians may be characterize*, there is no city in the Union, of it* population, where less drunkenness and rioting prevails on Sundays, in the ab sence of the Legislature, than there is uniformly here. This i* a very singular and unprecedented state of tbiog*. The Legislature, Instead of passing an aet pro hibiting the aale of liquor unler very severe and heavy penalties, have really opened th* door* for its indiscri minate sale for two month*. There are no license* to be granted, no board of exoise to discriminate between the respectable venders of good llqnor an<! the keepers of the loweat tippling shops anil rot gut groggeri?*. 1 bough every person is thus unrestricted, untramelle ! in the sales, for two months, and thousands may em brace the opportunity for that period who are not no n engaged in it, it i* reasonable to hope that the moral ??nse of the community will prove sufficient t? check any very inordinate or extravagant indulgence by means of this free trade in liquor. This city will be under the necessity, not only of raising by direct tax the defleiency of fifteen or twenty thousand dollars lost by not granting license*, but will be compelled to increase its police force about tiltyper cent, to carry out the prohibitory law, at an additional expense of some twenty thousand dollar* annually, making at least forty thousand dollars a year for tbe -upport ol that law? this, too, without Uking at all into the calculation the enormous decrease in the valua tion of *uch taxable property as breweries, distilleries, and all the mechanical means attached thereto. There are establishment* of this nature in this c'ty equal in magnitude and value to any others of the kind in the country, which pay ten* of'tbonsand* of dollars taxa tion. which, when their manufacturing j* suspended, under the prohibitory law, all the valu* which tbe assessor could rate them at would be the bare wall*. Let these establishment* be suspended and the tax payer* of Albany will realize it heavily. Keel estate now 1* *carcely worth the owning. BOCHWMU A* a police justice of Rocheittr was passing along the street on tbe 0th inst., he discovered the proprietor if a public house sawing bedstead* into firewood. He in quired what wa* the cauee of *uch a waste of property. The reply was, that the Maine law had passed and tavers keeping wa* at an end. Lodging travellers was n?t * paying business without a bar, and so it was just v w" to burn tbe bedstead*, while they were worth seven dol dar* per cord for fuel. A* for the poor traveQr', they might go to the watch honae to sleep.

On Tuesday last an interesting case of a'leged false pretence* came up before J notice I'earcy. of the Sesond District Police, la which an extensive dry good* merchant figures prominently. Some month* ago, as i? alleged, Joseph Hoxie, purchased (on credit) of McCuxdy, Aldrich k Spencer, and other firms, a large amount of dry goods, valued at>$130,000; and disposing of the same for half cash, left for parts unknown. The creditors held a meet ing. and it was determined to arrest Hoxie, and accord ingly a complaint was made against bim before Justice I'earcy, at (1 a warrant issued for his apprehension, the fugitive was taken into custody at bullalo, whither one of the creditors, Seth 8. Lynde, (having full power of attorney vested in him by the complainants) repaired for the purpose of bringing the accused on to New York; but for some cause or other it is alleged Lynde, instead of bringing Hoxie to this city, procee 'ed with him to l'bhacelphin, where a separation took plaoe, Lynde coming back to New York, and Hoxie. as is supposed, sail ing lor Cuba, where he now resides. Lynde not having performed his bnsiness satisfactorily to the rest of tbe creditors, he was requested to account for the where abouts of Hoxie, and tbe funds received by the latter for ihe goods bought ef kessrs. McCurdy and otters; but it seems Mr. Lynde was somewhat contu macious, and refused to be questioned on that point. The mat'er was then laid before the ma riltrate, and l ynde, bv bis orders, appeared In the police oourt on Tuesday last, there to be examined as a witness against hoxie: here Lynde declined answering some very mate rial questions, on the ground that it misht produce a bad impression against bim. His counsel argued that lie was not bound to answer the ({uestltns put to hiaa; while, on the other hand, the oo unset for the cemplaiii snts held that he could not refose, under the circuas stances, to answer all the questions atked him. Justice I'earcy, at this stage of the proceeding, adjourned the case until yesterday, when the point of compelling the witness to testify was argued at great length. The magistrate has not yet decided tbe point, but will pro bably give his decision next week. The creditors of Hoxie believe tbst be has nearly f <10,000 deposited with responsible parties m this city, and it is for tk* purpoee of securing this amount that these proceedings have been instituted.
