Its marriage of the Ameioin Miiia'.er'a daagh her, Mine Bettie H. Mason, to Rmooe Heath, Esq., at Richmond, Virginia, and the arrival of the H >no nhis W. Dodge and several other distingaianei Americana in Paris, has thrown on air of transaUan. Us interest over the go; world whioh even the barn tog er capture of 400 ships, including 90 at lead at tienMehi? provision for a whole samaur campaign let aa army of 200,000 men taken or destroyed? h00 gnns taken at Kertch and 66 pieces of artillery al Boojoukait* - have not been allowed to dissipate, feough to a certain degree, a cloud has oversha dowed it, caused by the arrtst of the Honorable Mr. Greeley, for liabilities oonnected with the New York inhibition. That gentleman, it seems, bai been htdily incarcerated in the prison of the Hue Ciioby, Ibr debts which ?Frenchmen have made him reapou stt?a; though, it appears, he is morally respon sible for nothing of the kind; whether they can makeThim legally so, is aoo her matter. It *?a tooad on application to the Honorable Mr. Macou, the United States Minister, that it was not an affair which gave him the right te later fere; and I saspect that Mr. Greeley is, at the moment I witting, still imprisoned. Everything in Pails is beginning to wear a far mere smil ng aspect. Tue suc-esses that have in aagmrated General Pelisaier's cjmmaud have im mensely elated all classes, who are beginuing to hope that, with the absolute breaking np of the Vi enna Conference, a brighter era is setting in open the arms of France. In order to stimalate the wir ardor of the nation, and pay at tne same timn a compliment to the yonng King of Portugal, the Ecu ptior has been holding a review in the Chnmps de Mars, at which the Honorable Mr. Dodge, and oth.-r disthROisbed Amen cans now In Paris, were invite i to he present. Their gratification, if they are at all given to military spectacle, must have been great Indeed, for never did a review of thirty thousand mia take place in the dusty plain of the Clumps de Mars in more auspicious weather. There is, to be sore, a certain degree of sameness hi all great military revie ve, but the Emperor, while eace more bringing back the imperial eagle to the ?taadardB of France, has contrived to give an inter est to these occasions, which, during the Bourbon and Orleans reign, was comparatively slight. The ac tual wai tare going on in that terrible peninsula, when Russia is only beaten, to rise again with re doubled fury; the noeasy state of Enrobe, with Pa land biting her nails to the qnick-Hangary strain bke a greyhound upon the leaso, and S. ain with so many elements of combustion that a gaae tal conflagration is looked for dally, while a French ?my is thickening its ranks on the frontiers-this atone, without tbe presence of a young king whose ancestors had been driven from their torone by the Keaitorsof these identical troops he has now assisting to review, all gave piquancy to the present occaairn. The rain had fallen the whole morning, bat soon niter twelve o'clock a fresh breeze got np, the cloads Mew sway, and a sun just snffl ient to add radiancy to the scene, without putting forth its too scorching beams, rose over that immense area called the Champa de Ma'b, where es many displays and oere meniee of historic and dramatic interest have taken piece. His Majesty ltft the palace of the Tuileries et e quarter to two o'clock, by tbe grand gate ?f the garden. On his right rode the young King of Portagal?yurcniii tmberbis. He bestrode ? gsllunt giay, which the Emperor hai ixpieisiy sent for, over night, to dt. Cloud, end from his solid gait and solid bearing, I should be inclined to thixk was a peifectly safe war borne fei tbe juvenile monarch, who has, not withstind^g Ike reputed divinity which doth hedge all kingly personages, whether in the field or tbesaiooa, s very raw ana gauche presence. Behind, a little to the rear, rode Prince Napoleon aid the Dake of Oporto. There was tbe usual attenlance of marshals and geis sls en grand tenu, and the brilliant staff1, at tended by the Cent Garde, mustering very strong, sad presenting, with their ltgbt blue uniforms, their ?teal helmets and cuirasses, their formidable swords and their jet black horses, a coup d'ad of rare and muqne magnificence. On reaching tbe plain, at Meat two hundred thousand persons were found as sembled; and, considering that the multitude was Preich, tbe cheenog muat have oeen very aatisfa> ?te the Emperor and his royal gntsts. A iittie re, bewever, the Empress, with her Maids of Hseor, had arrived, atd taken np her position in the beautiful gallery of the Kcole Miiitaire, wh eh wee hong with crimson and gold in honor of the occasion. The troops, who were expressly forbidden te effer any manifestation to tbe Emperor, did not consider the prohibition to appte "o her Majesty, and nothing conld be more coeering and ex hUrating than tbe hearty reception she re ceived, both from them acd tne spectators. The rain had laid the dust, light shadowy c .ads tempered the heat; and when tne infantry tile . off In columns by divisions, the Imperial Guard land tag, tbe artiUerv in column by half batteries, and lbs cavalry in coin tens by squadrons, nothing could Cnbly be finer than the general effect. Such was high state ot discipline, and the general preci sion sr their movements, that those thirty thoaiand valiant hearts in gleaming armor more resembled an exquisite piece of machinery than an as.-temolage of liviig beings gifted w th the same tastes and de Mrea as other mortals. Besides Mr. Do.ige, Minis tor to Spaio, the Hon. Mr. O'Bnllivan, Minister ti Portugal; tbe Hon. Mr. Oass, Minuter to Rome; the Hon. Mr. Belmont, to the Hague; and t ie Hen. Mr. Fay, Minister to Switzerland, and Mr. Van Bonn, were observed to be present. The Lord Mayer of London, Sir Francis Moon, esd Lady Moon and his family?''Luna inter minora are at present in Paris, receiving the hos pitalities of M. Hoarsman, the Preteot of the Beine; and yesterday this great civic tnnc tionary ef England, vi-ited the Palais de l'lndnatrie, surrounded by so many footineu, end in cloth of gold, that the Parisians Mem in [danger of making the same blonder taey committed foar years ago, of supposing the Eaglish monarch aid tne civic functionary on an e<pial tooting of dignity. A grand ball at the Hotel de Villa is to be given on Monday, at which the yonng King of Portugal, the American visiters and the Lei a Mayor will be present. It is said that In Au gust, on er about the 15th, we are to expect a veri table congress of kings at Paris. The Queen of aland, the Em pert r of Austria, the Kiig of Bar i, the King of Portugal, and any other crowned head who thinks he can leave his noneetead with aeenrtty, will be welcomed by Franoe's new Em rier. Reports still, however, assert that he wiil the meantime make a flying excursion to the seat of war. H is a fact werthy of remark that, jost in propor tion ss the aims of tbe allies are raccewful, the hopes of peace become leee. It is evidently not anp peeed by the beet informed persons that if the Jtosstans were driven out of Rebastopal to morrow, that the question which brought abont *? would ho one whit nearer eolation; on the* contrary, 1 find the gravest thinkers asser: tof that every blow gives to Russia is only so much hardness and intinsity Imparted to tbe Stable duration of the war; and though the mal de without are delighted and carried away with present enoceas, men of this stamp assert tflat thev are only so many additional element* cast into the bnge volcano which is already seething, hissing, ami ottering tie tminoussubterraneous thunders beneath the thin crust of Europe.

(Hear) Hut it tr sain jour condition would be nugatory. That is the objection wDicta seems to earry moat weight with the house?not that our demand is too mueh, but tbat wo have conceded too much. Supposing Russia had four ?hips of the line and four frigates unoer the arrange ment we propose,.Ingland and France would eacn of them hare ha f that number, which sroolJ giro beteein them a fleet equal to that of Russia; and Turaey would also hare a lore# equal to that of RnasU's, independent of 'he atips the would hare In the Bosphorus, the dee of Marmora, and elsewhere. Therefore, while on the one hand, Russia, if sbe is ?intere in her acceptance of the principle of reducing her preponderance la the Black Sea. might well hare acceded to our proposals, ou the other hand Turkey would be provided by the same means with n suflicient security. Foen it is said the Russian proposal that the Straits should be closed in general, ano that Turkey should be at liberty to call upon her allies IA case of danger, was an arrange ment which would bare afforded security to Turkey; but the erudition propomd by Ku.iia was, th it Turaey might call any foreign force?either Russian, English or Frv neb? into the Boaphorus, and that condition w )uld thereiore hare enabled Russia, by means which it is uo necessary to describe, but whicn have sometimes pro vailed wrh Tuikish ministers (n laugh), to induce the Turk lab government to call in tho Russian licet under the pretence of danger which did not m reality exist 1 fay tbat no such condition was necessary to enable the Porte to call upon an allied force if Turkey were threatened with danger from Russia. It is said the Porte could uot do so, because, by treaty, tbe Turkish government was bound to keep the Stra ta closed; but will any man tell metnat, in common sense, n sovereign who knows that an expedition is on its way to threa en his capital, is to be prevented from calling his allies to his assistance, because a treaty provides tbat in time of peace all foreign vessels are to be excluded from the Straits? I contend that tbe condition which had tbe ctasent even of my right honorable friends who sit be low the gangway, having tbe consent of the French go vernment, and having the approbation of the Austrian government, wae a condition by which Russia would have agreed that her prepondertuce in tbe Black Sea should cease. That preponderance might have un questionably been made to cease by other means We did not regard this condition, in the strict cense of the words, as a tine qua non. We pro posed it; we said, "Thla, in our opinion, is the test course that can be adopted; it is, in fact, the only way we cun conceive of effectually putting an end to the preponderance of Russia. Have you any other mode 1o propose?" Russia proposed two other methods, both of which we thoaght insufficient, and Rnssia having no tblog else lo propose the conference naturally came to anvnd. Russia might have proposed other means, which were obvious to every body. My right honorable friend has said that the preponderance of Russia arises as much from her territorial position m from her naval force, it ie possible, then, that she might have made suggestions which would have effected au arrangement without a stipulation with regard to her fleet. Such be iog the ktate o! tbe case, the question is what u his House to do in the present.condition ot things? (H? .r.) We are asked what are the objects of tbe war; au 1 .he right bcoorable member from Midburst, in asking that cannot avoid asking the conditions upon which it is to bs terminated. It is idle in any man to ask his friend, much more to ask a minister, what are the objecte of tbe war. (Hear) The war was undertaken to re press the aggressions of Russia upon Turkey, to defend ?I will not Bay Constantinople, for if Turkey had nothing but Constantinople I would not give ten years' purchase for her empire, but to defend the Turkish em pire from being swallowed up by Russia. It Is for that that England and France are now contending. Are we fight ing lor it without reason? The House must recollect the papers which have been laid upon the table, in which it will be seen tbe Russian government civilly told us that Turkey must fall, tbat the man was sick, that his death bed was approaching, that there would be an inheritance to divide, that if Egypt would suit us, or even Candia too, those p issessions might probably induce us to wink at the appropriation of the remainder by other parties. I say tbe intention of Rueeia to partition Turkey is mani fest as tbe sun at noonday, and it is to prevent that that we are contending. (Hear.) That is the object of the war, ant>, as said in the declaration, not only to protect Tur key, the weak against the strong, but to avert injury ond danger from ourselves. (Hear, bear.) Let no man Imagine that if Turkey la destroyed by Russia, and that gigantic Power stride like a Colossus on the Baltic on the one hand to the Mediterranean on the other?let no man suppose the greet interests of this country would not be in peril?let not tbe Peaee-at all priee party imagine that their ccmmercl&l interests would not be Ceeply injured. (Hear, hear.) Instead of what I am told is the usual consumption of cotton at Manchester?30,000 bales per week?there are now 40,000 used. So that the trade is actually more flourishing than it was before the war; bnt that lucrative trade would labor under heavy encumbrances, if not soon disappear, were the Mediterranean and the Baltic uoder the sole com tuand of a Russian naval force, and that Power exer cising a dominant control over Germany. Who shall say that then the day might cot come when those who may succeed the hon. member for the West Riding might not have to repair to the hospital at Portsmouth, either to assist in aiding our suffering armv or to obtain a'place of safety? ("Hear, hear," and laughter.) Then, 1 say, we accept the motion of the right hon. gentlemen ?we accept the assurance of support which 1 am sura theie is hardly any man in the house who doss not fsel in his heart desirous of giving; it must be the fealing of every gentleman, in the present state of things, that it is becoming on the part of tho House to assure Hfr Majesty that they will give their earnest support in the prose cation of the war. (Hear, hear.) I am sore that sulth a resolution will meet with a unanimous respon-e from one end of the country to the other; that there is not a man in any part of the L'nited Kingdom who will not feel his heart glow when he finds that the Parliament of the country is animated by the same sentiment3 as himself, and who will not be proud to 'Muk that he shares in some degree in tbe det summation t-> support the government.

(Laughter.) If that be the motion which the House is about to vote upon, I trust that party feeling will for one nigLt be set aside; that, as it is no longer a conflict of party?he vote a fortnight ago having silenced that question?we shall, at least for one night, and upon one occasion, be unanimous in our assurances to the Crown tbat we are determined, as the trne representatives of the people of this geeat country, to give to her Majesty the best support we can in tbe prosecution ef the war to the attainment of a safe and honorable peace. (Loud cheers.) At Ihe conclusion, Mr. Fitx-roy pat the motion of Sir F. Bering, which, amid seme laughter, he declared to be carried. The motion Is es follows ? That this House, having seen with regret that the conferences of Vienna have not lei to a termination of hostilities, feels It a duty to declare tbat it will continue to give every support to her Majesty in the prosecatlo 1 of the war until her Majesty shall, in conjunction wii'.i her allies, obtain ior this country a safe and honorable peace.

The White Star clipper ghalimar arrived at Liverpool t>n th# 8ih instant, with advices from Melbourne to the 24th of March, 200 passengers, 40,COO ounces of gold on freight, and a mall weighing nine tons. Tncre is no political news. The trials of the Billur.i ? rioters were proceeding, hut in the p-io,:!pal case th jury returned a verdict of "Not guilty." TbeMelloume gold was quiet, owing to ah purchases for the .--bslimnr being completed. Tho pries of gold remained at ?3 10s. per ounce, lo wo 1 nt?thlti< of importance was doing ; prices remained as laaf quote-l. At (jeelong reports were rife of the dscoveryof new gold fields. The price of gold was ?3 Ids. 6d. per ounce, but with less eagerness to buy. At Hydney commercial affairs were active; country orders were coming to haml more freely; prices, how ever, remained without change. in tbe rates of exchange and of discount there was no alteration. Much inconvenience was felt from the few ships which were loading for iondon. The stores end wharfs at which colonial produce was received were crammed tall. From Adelaide we learn that, as far as tbe trade tn European merchandise -as concerned, the market was dull, but in rolonial produce there was an active busi ness doing. The labor market was well supplied from the late immigrations. At Hobtrt Town there was little change to report in the market. T'ue clipper ship lightning arrived on the 20th or March, and would sail for Liverpool on the 5th of Apr ). The Hontley sailed from Melbourne, for Lon-loe, on the 24th of March.

Meeting or the New York state Temperance Society, The semi-annual meeting of the New York 8tat? Tem perance -ocietv convened at Association Hall, Albany on Thursday, June 21, at 10 o'clock A- M. The President of the society, Edward C. DsJavan, then addressed the society as follows :? ADDBBftfi. GKNTLKKKf OS TOT NkW YORK STATE TiiMPBRAVCB SO ciktt :?The Executive Committee of your society has so recently issued an eddrwsa on the passage of the Prohibi tory law, centaimng their views on most points eon B?ct6d with the present condition of the temperance reform, that it ie unnecessary for me to take up the a"te w te2dta^^e '""k mr th" 10 C?U iu to sideration? ' W m*7 com# UP ,or joureon It appears to me, gentlemen, that the friends of tem have now two very prominent objects to effect, hirst. To permit no Infraction of the law. General negleot here would be fatal, and bring disgrace and con tempt upon the friends of this sublime moral revolution every where. ' "Every ward in our cities, every town in the State, should have their leagues and vigilance committees, of strong and leading men?men resolutely determined te eland ehonlder to shoulder?not te yield an inch to the enemy, and see that the law is fattnfull v executed. Such combinations, universally formed, would, I bslieve, in a very great degree prevent the breach of the law and save a vast amount of litigation. On the 4th of July next, the day of our national in dependence, the Prohibitory law is to be inaugurated in the btate of New York. If that day is worthy to he commemorated for having given ns political freedom should it be lees commemorated for giving us freedom from the greatest of all despots?the rum power ? It is therefore to be hoped that the good people of this State, when assembled in their respective districts to thank God for freedom from British rule, they will not faU to connect with it rejoicings and thankfulness to the Giver of all good, for the great boon He has gran ted to their prayers and labors?'reedom from a power which has proved itrelf so destructive to private pease and national proepertty; and, while thus rejoicing, may the resolu tlon b6 Hiill more fixed, that whl.'e improvem?nta in the law, to make it more effective, will be sanctioned, its re peal?never! We must no more tolerate the thought of repeal of this law than the repeal of this Union, and a return to a foreign yoke. The second, and, as I cannot but think, as important a consideration as the first, is in relation to the demoral izing drinking usages of society in private families. The mirerable drunkards are not all made so in the public liquor bars, by any means; but oftener than is supposed we ean trace the origin of the disgrace and dowamll of our young men to the table and sideboard of their own parents. The drinking and the drunkenness which are fostered in the homes of the land the law can only reach indi reetly. The time, hownyffij will surely come when the principles of total abotMfeffa, as a duty, and of prohi bition, as a State neseaatir. wlU be so firmly settled and established in thamuTic mind, that a puhflc writer ?ill no more think of aHbtng the term u property" to intoxicating poisons, kept for sale as a beverage, thsn to a mad dog let loose in the streets, hut rattier as a noxious and fatal nuisance to be seized and destroyed as the mad dog is now. When the principles which lis at the foundation of the temperance reform shall have become fully and deeply inwrougnt m the public m'nd the general sentiment of the community will link the pur chaser with the seller as a wrongdoer. For sorely thea-> destructive compounds are as pernicious if drank in tke private parlcr as in the public dramshop; the Wool and the mind aid the heart of the young are as effectually poisoned, and the blighting effects of such unhallowed indulgences are as numerous and as fatal. W hen a still more health ful and correct public senti meut shall be fully established as to the nature and ef feet of intoxicating drinks on the mind and body?when the great troth on which the temperance reformation is based, vix: that all nse of intoxicating drinks ae a have rage is abuse?when this great truth shall be rightly un deistood and acknowledged by the masses?eminent and .earned jurists wlil not be as free as they now are with opinioc* in defence of a traffic, the footprints of which precede murder, arson, crime of every hue, cholera and disease of every shade, as weU as pauoerism, degrada tion, and death When this great truth shall be univer sally established, as I have faith to believe It will?and as a iruth too not to be controverted? unjust and per nicious lavs, framed to protect and mike legal one of the vilest trades which man who was made In God's own image can be engaged in?laws framed in a total mis conception as to the ruinous and destructive effects of the traffic?will no longer bs quoted by men of standing and reputation, as a reason why inch a scourge should be perpetuated, protected and fostered. Ever since I hare been engaged with you, my fellow laborers, >n this cause, two prominent object* have been *,?Pt 'I view, which I have harllv for a moment lost eight of. The one was to endeavor to Interest all reli fious dsnorulnations in the movement, so as t? prevent any just charge of.its being considered sectarian; the other, to endeavor to interest all political parties, so as to prevent its becoming a party measure for demagogue* to Kfi? for B?ltifah ends. For I cannot understand why a movement, the only object of which is to stay the ravares of intemperance, and which ieeks the good of the whole bnman family, rhould find an opponent In any branch of the church of Christ, or in any political party. Nor Jo I now believe, if self interest, prejudice, faehioo, mis conception as d appetite were out of the way, hut that every good man would enrol himself among Its firmest supporters. On looking back over a quarter of a century, through winch thl* society has labored, I find as a gen?nil rale, the officers of the State Society, as well as all the auxU?, and I may add the national organization, have been selected from all parties in politics, and all deno mieatiots .n religion. And I also ffnd, that hitherto the great ei.ort been to induce all parties to adopt tem perance principles and practise temperance habits; and that any movement towards the formation of a distinct temperance party has befn scrupuously avoided. We have acted, up to this time, upon the belief that our great strength lay In this disinterested and impartial oourse if conduct. A course of conduct so defensible hi theory, and which his proved so advantageous in practice, ought not to te changed hastily and without due consideration. The future policy to be pursued by this society, so far as political sctiou is concerned, la a nutter so important n its onsrquencej that I shall not presume to iodteate it, but shall cheerfully acquiesce in any decision you may arrive at after it has received the consideration its importance demands. But whatever attitude the friends of prohibition nay decide to take at the present important orisis, and what ever may be the manner in wlich their united strength may be directed, it is my settled conviction, if they act prudence, snd ere true to their principles, that no political party, arraying itself against those principles, or xgaioBw the prohibitory law, can carry an election among th? people of the Empire State. There are Indeed other and great Interests of sooMy to be regarded, but in such a crisis is it reasonable to expect that temperance men will compromise their principles bv easting their votes in favor of candi latea lor office, high or low, who do not avoid the use of the poison tbemielvei, and who are not in favor ef a rigid snlorosnaent of the prohibitory law as to others 1 The friesds of prohibition throughout the State aho ikd be reminded that there are to be chosen at the Novera ber e.ertion, one hundred and twenty sight Assembly men, thirty two Senators, eight Judges ef the Supreme Court, and at least one Judge of tho Court of Appeals and great numbers of local, judicial, and eivLl officers! And while hereafter, as heretofore, party organizations and party politics should be disregarded by temperance men in canting their votes, is it possible to compute the importance, at so critical a juncture, that thbse votes should be east so ae to see are the election of candidates pledged to the principles of total abstinence and the prohibitory law ? Ninoe in those states of the American Union where the ?ale of intoxicating liquors Is prohibited, and mads by law, it is felt to be grievous that liquor should, not slthsta riding, he Imported and soM for drink ing purpoM* under the sanction, in original nackawes of ajaw of Congress, I beg leave to suggest whetherit would not be expedient for the friends oftemperaooe in this State to petition, and invito ail those States where a prohibitory law exists to unite with them in petition ing Congress, to exempt all such States from thY opera tion of all laws of Congress which conflict with State laws, relative to tiio sale of intoxicating liquors.

On ex amining into the affairs of the society, I found it deeply involved in debt; and unless tome one conld be fonnd to asmme heavy responsibilities, the society had better dissolve. I at ones decided that it was my duty to as sume those responsibilities, throw aside all considera tions of private ease and interest, and In view of the great approaching contest, devote to the cause what lit tle ef energy and experience 1 might have at command, at least, until tbe enactment of a prohibitory law in tbe State or New York. _ After a severe oonfliet, and notwithstanding the Im perfections with which the cause has been advocated, aad the maoj mistakes wbioh m&y hif? been made, the nsited efforts of the temperance men of this State, and the smiles of a good Providence, have secured the enact ment, ae I trust they will the enforcement, of a prohibi tory law. And now, considering my age, the sickness in my family, and the many private duties which 1 have been obliged to neglect, I trust 1 may be permitted to resign the office ol President of this society. 1 should be gratified if the society would accept my resignation now; but desire, at least, that the resignation may take effect at the annnal meeting In January. I trust I jmm ask this relief, friends and fallow UCmrera, without Bf ing considered a deserter from the field, or as desiring to withhold my portion of tbe tribate to the common cause; for thongb I think it my duty to retire from the Presidency of the 8tate Society, the interests of the great temperance reform, (the very handmaid, ae I believe, of Christianity,) and the struggles and successes of its friends, must continue to engage my warmest sympa thies and prayers to the very latest moment of life. After some conversation upon other propositions, the number of that committee was fixed at seven. The report of the Exeoutlve Committee was then read by Amass McCoy, of this city. ? The report rehearses the history of the Prohibitory law' in the State Legislature, from its inception to the final passage by botn nouses, and the action of the State Society, together with the means made use of, since the last meeting, for the furtherance of the cause, and con clude* by alluding to the hopeful aspect of the tempe rance cause in this State, and an earnest appeal to the society for vigorous action in the future. The report wee accepted, adopted, and ordered printed, under the direction ef the Executive Committee. The President announced the following gentlemen ae the Business Committee:?Hon. J. B. Williams, Tomp kins; Kev John Marsh, New York; Hon. Gerrit Smith, Madison; Prof. A. McCoy, Albany; Mr. House, Saratoga; Gsn. Smith, Utic?; G W. J. Bronson, Montgomery. Rev. Mr. liABsn asked to be excused from acting on tbe oommittee, alleging as a reason that he eould not be of service on it, on account of an article that had been published in the Argus, and was written by a member of the committee, alluding to Mr. McCoy, whose name he mentioned. . . . ? Mr. McCoy denied earnestly and emphatically ever having written one word of the article, or being at all instrumental in ita publication. Mr. Marsh was, on motion, excused, and The President announced the name of Mr. Mi AUister, of Oneida, to act on the committee in place of Dr. Marsh. Some one proposed to add the name of W. H. Bur leigh, hut objections being made to an even number, the proposition was withdrawn. A motion was made to increase the number of the committee t* nine, but was loet. The Secretary then read letters from ex-Governor An son P. Morrill, of Maine, and Henry Button, Governor of Oonecticut, which we are compelled to omit for want of room. The Prxsidiwt statel he had also an interesting letter from the Governor of Massachusetts, which he did not have with him. Bev. F. A. Smwcicr, of Hartford, Conn., was then called upon, and gave an Intonating account of the oon dition of things in Connecticut, lie represented the people there ae a law-abiding people. He gave a flatter ing picture of tbe improvement in that State consequent upon the passege of the law, and repelled the false im putation tliat the law was a failure there. Mr. Rimer, of Kew Jersey. wa> next introduced, as a member of a recent Legislature of that State. He said he bad mad* a vow never to refuse to speak for tempe rance, and followed in an effective speech, so inter spersed with anecdote and humor as to onvulse the house repeatedly. Gskkit Smith, from the Business Committee, pre sented a partial report from that oommittee for the con side rat it n of the meeting, aa embodied in the follow ing:? RB SOLUTION 9. Resolved, That the New York State Temperance Soci ety, composed of delegates from various socle.ies, or ders, alliances and leagues throughout the State, de voutly acknowlelge the goodness of Divine Providence in vouchsafing to the people of this oommonwealth the law for the prevention of Intemperance, pauperism and crime. Resolved, That the spectacle of twenty thousand grog geries, ton hundred and fifty-three breweries and distil leries, with all the appetite, avarice and party spirit which they threaten to marshal for reeistance, does not ebake the firm and unalterable purpose of the body of delegates now assembled, or the bodies of temperance men whom they represent, to defend, uphold and strengthen the great benign and constitutional statutes just now incorporated into the law of the land, and to procure the piompt, faithful, and impartial enforcement ef all its provisions. ,, , . Resolved, Tnat while we Indulge in no unkind or vin dictive leeling towards those wno are engaged in the liquor traffic, we are pained to see them, with many ho norable exceptions, giving the moat unmutakeablo evi dence of a disposition to trample alike upon tbe laws of tbe Etete and the best interests of their fellow men, and to make their own gains paramount to all other consi derations. Resolved, That whatever press or political organisa tion allies itself with tbe rumsellers in their efforts to repeal, defeat or weaken the law for the prevention of intemperance, pauperism and crime, becomes a party to the most iniquitous end vulgar fraud of modern times, to treason against the beet interests of the State, and so far labors for a return to barbarism. Resolved, That government is never to forget, and the people sr? never ta forget, that government is a grea. educator of the people; and that government is there fore to be careful to wield ita mighty educating powers in the right direction, and that the people are therefore to be ever careful to select for their rulers such, aad such paly, as will wibld their power? in this direction?Euch only aa wtM rule in obedience to th? teachings of wisdom ana the claims of justice. Resolved, That nothing can so effectually serve to edu cate the people into the right views of the effects of alcoholic liquors held for sale for a drink, and into Tight views of tbe disposition which is proper to be made of them, as to have government doom such liquors to de struction. The report, as far as read, was accepted. Mr. Cramfton suggested some action upon tbe subject proposed in the President's address, vix.: the formation of town and county sureties or leagues, or associations fcr the better enforcement of the law. He thought .. ! Hon npon that subject was demanded, and threw out the suggestion that tbe Business Committee might oon ?ider it. . . The Pxsipkkt urged the importune* of members in discussing the resolutions confining themselves strictly to tbe subject* nnder discussion, that the business sf the meeting be finished to-day. Hon. Gkxrit Smith, from the Business Committee, presented for the consideration of the meeting the fol lowing additional RE90LITI0N8. Resolved, That the World'* Temperance Committee, appointed at the World'* Temperance Convention, held in New York, September, 1863, Hon. Neal Dow, of Maine. Chairman, to call future convention*, he requested to call a World'* Convention at an early day, at such place aa t her may deem b**t for the reform. Received, That we heaittly concur with the ooncluaion expressed by hi* Excellency Governor Morrill, of Ma ??, respecting the plot wickedly instigated by the enemle* of tl>e Maine law in Portland, via.:?Mayor Dow, and those tana men who aided him In quelling the mob on that 03 cation, merit and will meeive the eupport and approba tion or all good citizens. Resclved, That while the pnbMc mind is coming to ap preciate the enormity end guilt of the public liquor bars, it ie our duty, as members of total abstinence socie ties, to persist in ex poeing the immorality, t-infalneta and equally deetruettve eUorts of the liquo* bare still kept in private families. Resolved, That for the successful enforcement of the Prohibitory Liquor law it ie ei the flrst importance that all executive and judicial officer*, from the constable up to the Judge of the Court of Appeetla, should be total ab stinence men In habit and principle, and heartily In fa vor of tie principle* of prohibition. Resolved, That tt is the duty at all good citizens, and especially those who profeee to love the cause of tem perance, to encourage and aeeist the officer* whose duty it ie to enforce the *'Aot for the suppression of intem perance, pauperism and crime,'' and to furnish thsm with sneh facts and evidence aa may some to their knowledge in reference to any violations of said lew; aad to complain of such officer* whenever they eball neglect or refuse to do their dnty. Resolved, That wa recommend to all the oauntlss of the State the adoption of the Careen I<eague, as a highly effective machinery for enforcing the law for the pre vention of intemperance, pauperism and orime. Resolved. That In the opinion of thie meeting, a State Temperance convention should be called not later than the? th of August, to make nomination* to be sup ported by the friend* of prohibltlm at tha ensuing fall election, and that the State Committee appointed at the dubnrm Convention be hereby requested to nail *uch convention en the day named. Tin resolutions were then read separately. The first resolution wee adopted. On motion of Mr. Cramito!*, the second wae amended ee a* to read "26.100 groggeriee," and then adopted. The fenrth resolution being ressbed, Mr. McOor sailed for the reeding of the portion of the resolution which was origtaft'lT proposed by him bmt rejected by the eta* mlttfe *1 follow*:? IUk IikI, That thh MM| h?ara With surprise that the ft'iil committee of the democratic party of thio State propose to (Ugrvl. tint party by g'.viDg aid an J comfort to the rom* ?err-\ "ho are oow plotting to re vive a bad and execrable trade whicb the moral aeatlmen? of ibe State bae just breaded with iofamy. Mr. Md ov tbouglit the resolution but expo'el agrav? fact The Central Oonuu i es of the branch of the demo crats party, ol wbieo tbe Albany A ku ta the onrau had already declared theioeelvea in favor ef repeal, and i6 waa waU known thattnnt paper, though ed ted and o^n. ducted with great ability waa a firm opponent of prohi bition. The Argus brr n<*h of the party would, he mn- . deratood, incorporate tr.e eame principle in their plat- I form. He felt that the people of the State ooght to I known thie?that, the Ootral Committee and proses? f of both branches of th* democratic party were planted i upon tbe ground of suti prohibition Tbe people want to kxow what tbey have to contend with He himselC waa in favor of making that a pert ot the reiolutiun. Mr Bartlktt hoped that clauae would not bo incorpo rated in the resolution. He thought it desirable that tbe friends ef prohibition bo relieved of the imputation,' that tbey had any leaning toward tbo whig party. Ha felt that it wae unnecessary to name any party, and it was impolitic, too, aa it would prejudice many against the cause. The geneml language of the resolution ha sreally preferred to specifying any particular party,and thue making an application which waa not wnoor neces lary. If the democrat' c party did adopt anti-prohibition aa an article of their creed, then it would be tiro* enough to disclose it: now he thought to do so would e to anticipate, and he toped It would not be done. The resolutiin as reported by the committee we? a<\'pon"the ninth resolution considerable debate waa bad relative to the use of the term 'bars," *? applied ta the family ose of liquor. . In this debate. Mr Patterson, of Vermont, and tb? president, Mr. DtlavsD, am others, participated. The ievolution was adopted?its language unchanjel. The twelfth resolution oe ug read, Col. Camp moved a substitute. He was opposed tf the name. He did not want to name a society after any man, not even a Delavan or Neal Dow; another objec. tion be had wae the unreal basis of the Carson League. Notes wsre given for a large amount, and Instead ot being good for their face were worih but fifty eents ta th? thousand dottim* H? thought such a bwii foolish and ridiculous, and he was oppose! to sealing out a recommendation of tbe League. _ After further debate, Mr. Cart-on himself addressed the meeting. He said the name was give*" ?> the Loagu? entirely against bis will. He then proce- l d to explain the orig'n oi tbe organization, and the puurtple of theiC opeiation. The asfossnent was made to oorrespoc? with the assessed value of property upon which th? holders pay taxes. It was but paying ? tax for th? support of temperance instead of for the support ex in tern dpi ance. He urged that the League had a moral power far beyond the dollar and cant capital.

If It was that he should be permitted to defend Gov.
