On the presentation of a resolution fiom the Board of Coonellmca, appropriating $3,000 lor the celebra'.lon of the Fouith of July in the city of I< ew York, Aldtnnan Vkrian moved an amendment to make it 93,000. Alderman Wv. Tucker moved, as a further amend ment, the sum be $2,000, and that n > portion of it shall be expended for stimulating drinks. Alt'ertrsn VooRiiis thought that as all the rum shops would be closed on that day, end as there would be no drink on tbe table but cold water, a smaller appropria tion would be sufficient for flieworks ani other demon stration*. Aldermen Herbick was in favor' of the mint liberal appropriation for the celebration of the glorious Fourth oi July, and he hoped the friends of -'dam" in ths "ioard, would vole against any amendment made to reduce tho appropriation fcr the oelebratioa of that day, tbe recur rence ef %hioh they all looked to with pleasure ail pride. Alderman Wn. Tucker said if he had hie wish not on? dollar rhoull be voted for the oelebration. H* thought every man should pay for his own dinner at home. Allennan Brown wss of opiuion that >t was too early in the day to make an/ appropriation, ad the mon of it would be a pent in sappers at the various preliminary meetings o: 'he oommtttoe, before the time cane. Hi, theiefoie, moved a farther amendment, to nuke the sum ? tiOO. Alderman Sax. Briggb was In favor of a liberal appro priation for the celebration of the Fourth of J'lly. Tlough be was in favor of cold water, he thought that was a day on which they might drink a little wins and celebrate the event as their forefathers till. Alderman Wx. Tucker was opposed to eating aud drinking cn the 4th of July. He was patriotic eno aghj he enjoyed tbe day by going out and boying a tew tranches of Ore crackers. Alderman Hkrrick ? Two bunihes? (laughter.) Alderman Tuckkr ? A few bunsbes Aldeim?u Howard was in favor of a liberal appro priation: be knew there bad net be?n enough of moaejr on ths last occasion to pay for the fireworks, and hi was oppose (i to some of the bis f&t sdderanu feeding oa oommitlee for a month before tbe time ; be bad p?en some of tbem on the lsst occasion reeling out of the room below, after good dinners and plenty of wine, which th?y caUed^lunehes. H? was opposed to th s, be cause he, himetf. was not iovitvd to any of the feeds; (laughter); he bad been passed over, while soaejrreasy loafing friend of an alderman was asked down to the kitchen (laughter): he hoped th?re would be wine on the 4th OiRJuJy. Tbe Sixth ward intends to throw itself back cn the constitution, and defy end despise the ?fitn? liquor law. as it does tfce Governor who sljrne-l it: the Sixth ward will take no notioe of the law ana will \ake their drinks wbenever and wherever they please; he hopsd the full amount would be agreed upon be:aas? it was a day on which a little extravagance might be permitted oat of respect to tho signers or American independence, hat be hoped it would not ho spent in conmittee. Several amendments were pat, varying ths sum from $600 to $3,500, when an amendment for $3,000 was ear ned by a vote ef 14 to 8. Alderman Stekra offered tbe following:? Resolved, That WOO of tbe appropriation for the celebra tion of ov.r national Independent be appropriated tu fur nish a dinmr at some hotel for the Common Connoii. the heads of departments, and suon distinguished lndiriiln%l?, non icki.lent, as may be in tb? oity and thai no ?plrit? or atimnleting liquors be ferni.-hed at suoh dinner. Laid oa me ta ale. THE CITY HALL. Aliermsv Herbick moved that when this Board ad jonrn, it adjourn to meet on the first Monday in June. Aldetman Voorbis hoped that ths Board would meet egain on Friday next. They had other business to transact. They had been much censured by the publi : press for tot proceeding with the matter of building the now City Hail, hut he wished the pablie to under Und, and lie bopel tbe reporters would notice the fact, tba this Board cannot make any appropriation until tbe Legislature, by a special act, authorised the money re quired. 'ihe Legislature had adjourned for the year without gashing the set. and there was no probability, no matt , i what action this Board took, that the City Hall could be built this jcar, or nsxt year either, unless the Iighle.uie passed tho leq Hired law to raise tho money. Alders ? a ?ly opposed the adjournment to June, but i on the motion being put, it wis carried. After disposing of Rome other msAters, the Board ad journed '.o the first Monday in Juno.

CurUog landed at the jock foot of Mont gomery street, on Tuesdsy afternoon, havlrg oa board ?78 pa sengers, all Moimons, bound for Salt Lake City, Utah Territory. A visit was paid the vassal ye?tsrday, from which ?? hare learned a numbsr of curious par ticnlara concerning tbii remarkable people (for they art a people In themselves), whoie origin, rise, pers?c ation snd progress hare been attended by so ma by straage and etaiUwg events, and whose religions faith is one of the moit extraordinary manifestations of this extra ordinary age. Whatever may be said as to the faith or eocial habits of this people, there is no qaeation but that they are a temperate and cleanly seat, and to this fact the ship they oame oyer in bore abundant evi dence. Tbe decks were remarkably clean, being kept so fcy the (migrants, and tie officers of the ship say their arrangement? for securing tbe comfort of the passengers wen admirable, and dismayed raw adminis trative skill. . The pssssngsrs wrre divided into seven wards, each under charge of an elder and two councillors, all of whom acted under the orders of Elder Israel Barlow, President, and Elders Robinson and Perry, councillors. The eub officers received their orders from t^e persons above^smed, and then proceeded to put them Into exe cution with despatch, and without unnecessary oonfu "icn or turmoil. Everything was done by the sound of a bugle. This was the signal to rise in the morning to pray, to cat during the day, to put out the lights to re tire?in fact, to perform all their various duties and ex ercises. This excellent discipline was not without its good effect. The passengers came inti port remirka bly healthy; nor waa there any seasickness even, of any account, during tbe voyage. the scene on board the ship was an odd one. The passengers were all retained on board ; nor will tliey leave until means are procured to take them out to Utah in a body. Thsy crowded around the deok in groups, dfecussisg their prosjects, and scanning curiously every new face that appeskred on board ? the numberless crafts were gliding up the river, and the movements of the stevedores and sailors on the dock. Every period of life waa represented on board, from pu ling Infancy to feeble old age. The number of children Is very large, and tbe Saints evidently pty devout attention to tLe scriptural injunction to increase and multiply, and their efforts have been blessed with a most abundant return. In this laudable endeavor they have the cordial co operation of the other sex? indeed all the marriageable woman on bos rd appeared to be either mothers or about to bscome such The passengers by this ship are English and i coteb, a lew WeUh. but no Irish, there being very few Mormon proselytes hailing from that coon try They are mostly of the poorer class, colliers, mechanics and work ing wop.'e from the manufacturing districts of England and Scotland. The women, a* a general th n;, are not hsni some, but beslihy and cleanly. The peculiar religious tenet-t of thii test were the sub ject of several conversations with persons on boar '."Tney Believe in tbe Bible with Jo mh'a additions, in tie Trinity snd in a life alter death. Their view of the re wards and puni?bments in another state assim'JaUs to the Swedentorgisn faith, vi* : that wa will follow out tbe same conduct, suffer and enjoy, be subjeot to pain or p easure ss our evil or good prosperities predominate in this life. The saints are of course tj conquer tbe ?aitb, and subdue ail opnosit on to the Mormon faith, we endeavored to induce Elder Barlow to give a deSnite answer to questions concerning his bel ef, but though an en IrentljjCr practical man as his management of me vessel provea him to be, he seemed puzzled to reply to ?ur inquiries regarding his religious tenets. ' wherein," he waa jjfced, 'Voce the faith of the Uormont difier from other sects ?" "Oh!" he replied, "we believe in truth, and aecept It wherever we find it." v " Yes, but the devoUes of every faith say that. On *1.1 Jon advocate polygamy 1" elder Barlow ? " Because we flnd'nothmg in the Bible to condemn it, while the holy patriarchs had niiny Jive# and concubines; atd tliey are our exemplar*. I""" '? M text in tbe Old or New Testament denonac '??. F"1'J8,?Jr> wWJ* ther* ?? many that commend it " ' .y*1*! how about the text that says ? the bishops absll have but one wife V " E'de* B?ilow_" That 11 ver7 mueta misunderstood. The bishops are commanded to have one wife, at least, but there is no prohibition as to the number of wives they may have " *???>? '5?n this very litUe light could be got from the ftlder. From others on toaid, of i mors communi cative tutu, *e heard many arguments, founded on pbjfcfological considerations, to prove that polygamic merr'sf es, rather than monogamic, are mere in aooord sote with the dictates of nature. They say that during 'be p. ricds of geat ga?n.n and lactation? that is, nn*n the to'snt is veaned? the woman is unclean, and ahoald be carefully excluded from the company of man. Much prjMcsl evil and suffering is said to flow from thin cause in monogamic marriages, as well as an unnatural deve'opement of the pasaions. Men's passions, how ever, they go on to aay, are ever active, snd these is no good res ton to be given why they should abstain from giving tlem their appropriate action? and thus poly gamy is necessitated by the very laws of our beiag Although contending strongly in favor of a plurality of wives, the -Mormons demy that it is practised to any great extent among them? one reason being the ecarci ty of women in Utah, and another the fa^tthat married people wlo become converts, are lo'.h to change the so cial relaticns ttey have always lived under. But when a new generation springs up, ths vices now so prevalent in our civilization will disappear. Prostitution is said to be unknown in Utah, nor are there any women St to have husbands without them, and thus two giant evils, enforced celibacy and indessrimlnite prostitution, inher ent In tbe very framework of our civilization, are done away with. There ?re other grounds to justify these strange dopmas. On* is that the Mormons are a chosen people, and it is their function to Increase as rapidly as posrible, thus doing the Lord's work. " But," we asked one of our informants, a young, in telligent man. "don't yon find som? difficulty in induc ing women to jcln yoor sect; thsy surely cann ?t like to become fractional wives and preside over divided house holds t" " 0 no he replied, "we have very little difficulty on that score. In fact, very litt'c is saidnbout the plural ty wife system. It is not a first or qrsn a second rate consideration with us. and in England is kept out of sight as much as oosslbls. When the doctrine was flrst broached in IM'1, it caused no little stir and excitement, aoJ had the eflect of stopping for a while the proeslytint that was going on, though it has sines recovered, and the work is now progressing rapidly. As the laws, eoth n Fngland snd the United States, forbid a plurality of wives oi course it is not until they get to Utah that they fully realize the fall effect of polygamic marriages." "Do you know anything of the population of Utah, or of their industrial arrangements there ? " I understand there is now about fifty thousand p?r sons wbo claim to Is Mormons, who live under tha rule of Brigham Young. A tenth part of all their prodnoe is to be given to tha State, with which roads ate built, churches erected, snd educational and industrial advan tages secu.-ed to tbs people. Ws have no poor in Utah, cor can wo hay* any ondsr our present industrial or ganisation; li dead, there is an approximation toward* socialism in our institution, and Orson Pratt, in a pe riodical he pubMahsft in Washington, D. 0 , advocates what the Apostles of old bad, a community ofgooda. He argues that they never can be brethren if great dis peri'.y in social position, caused by wealth and poverty, '? At the same time we reeognise individual e?wt, ifcoogh favoring concert a! action. Much more was said: but the above an tbe material pemte ehoitod. i ?' *T? hundiel and ssventy eiaht passengers in the ship, nearly half are females, and. at has bean observed, a greet number of children. There am bat very few unmarried marriageable males or female* aboard. No one is permitted to leave the ship except tho?e wbo contemplate stajlag to tbe city, of which there are only eight or ten familioe. Tbe rest are to be immediately transported to the West, and will take the shortest route to Salt Lake^cily Those who stay be bioa srs poor, and will wait until remittances are sent on, or they have earned money enoug'j to take their roat for the lsnd of saints. Of those wbo ;ire now ooming out, msny have been ?ent by a "Perpetual Kmlgration Fund,"* to which tbe converts in the Old tVorld all oontributo.

ThJs is very painfully manifest in the in stance of the new bank now going up in Broadway, in order to replace No. 440, which was burned down, with rome of the adjoining tenement*, during the past win tfr. In this caie the contractor i* erecting a building five atorlea high, on the block between Howard and Broome street*, in tbe moat crowded thoroughfare o' New Yoik, and in the neighborhood of all oar principa hotel*, without attempting to put up the smallest en closure on the footway, in order to protect passengers frrm tbs danger, filth, and annoyance caused by his ma terials, lumber, and hodmen. At 434, corner of Howard Mrett. commences an accumulation of scaffolding poles, old mortar, flooring joists. bricks, sand, lime, and hods extending about six feet from the sidewalk on Broad nay, and running on the footway up as far as the hous No. 460, near the torner of Broome street; and ladies in full diets, children, aged people, and business men, are expected to walk through and over thia, because one man is permitted to violate a city ordinance with impu nity. Viewed fiom 400 Broadway, before a perion de ccenda to Canal street, thia looks a positive nuiaanoe, and yet It has not been complained of by the police, nor waa theie one In sight of it at neon yesterday, although lives were momentarily endangered from the falling of a Le?p of bricka or inbblsh. Mayor Wood would do well to take a look ut it. Indeed, it is remarkable that at the buildings In Canal street, near Centre, on Broadway, at Dusne street, and at No. 440 just spoken of, tbore are no sidewalk enclosures for the protection of life or limb, whilst humble architects in Hudson street take every precaution to csrry on their work* in safety, la any man rich enough to violate our city regulation* when he plea.xesi' Cricket.

It was c-u tended I or the plaintiff's tbat T.N residence in New York after his return to this State was not six years, and that consequently tli? plea of prescription could cot prevail, and that his discharge in bsnkmptcy prevented a joint action by a service on To*nccnd, so ?s to bind his co defendant Kinney, who rould not b? prevented a I tor sards from plea ling pre scription. ? The counsel for Colonel Kinney argued that the Ktu:n oi Tcwnrend to the Stato o( Mew York worked a ctmmenctmont of the statute of limitations, which no subsequent disability cculd affect, because it was suoh a return, under th? statute, that tho pUiatifTs, with due diligence, might have been aware of.

Hie testimony taisen betore Commissioner lieazlitt, at the primary hearing, was read by United States Diatriet Attorrej Yandjke, and its application to the cases be fore the Court commented upon. He elnimed to have the authoiity to Indict the defendants, under the act of 1818. Hie second section npon which the prosecution relied, read*tliu<: '-An^be it further tn toted, that If any person shall, witb'n the territory or jurisdiction of the united States, enlist or enter himself, or go beyoed the limits or jurisdiction of the United States, with intent to be enlii'rd cr entered in the service or any foreign prince, State, colony, district or people, as a soldier, er as a marine or teaman, on hoard of any vetael ef war, letter of marque or privateer, every person so offending i-ball be desired guilty of a high mit demeanor, and ahalt te fined cot exceeding cne thousanl dollars, aud he iae pritonea tot excedinr three years " Judge Kane said he h*d read the act and formed aa o;in:ch. He would reject from th? consideration every aigumcLt founded on the punctuation of it. The phrene clogy of the second section la clear. The word soldier dees not connect itself with any vessel. The important words in the btU are, hire or retain, whioh inoluie Mu tuality cf engagement. Contract zneanii one having pail or engaged to pa; or prrform. 1 do cot think that the payment ?>f the paaaage fruea this ccuntry cf a man who desires to enlist in a fbrelga port co ices wit a in the act In the terras of the printed proclamation, tt ere Is nothing conflto'iag with the la we of the Vn'ied State-.
