The writer, it will br aten, hai descended to the mvetu - ation of hu subject with great patience and pcrterefaoce, but tha ooorkxioo a mitt rroaiice on every mind, will well reward ha labor. Upon my own, which I coofet. wai under a etmig biai o pintt him, he dm made a. lasting upreetoa, and removed irery doubt resficitiug the Justice, le gality, propriety mad expedience of the grant in OjUeetioa. It ie my belief, that Dotblng hai had to mnch and fO injurious an effect in exciting and keeping alii public pt ejudicet against ttcam - btwiti, ai tho iuca hich is generaUj prevalent, and which it, I fancy, craftily k.etit alive with no imall de groa of industry, that their profits to the owners are iaameeta, and beyond the bounds of reason. On thie pjint, uke tho following extract from the answer before us : ' The receipt of a s team - boat are rery great, by, tha cxpeocet, indeuenlent of the inlfrat of the capital, aie eoonoou.

Pee, we are ofopinion, will have a greater of - fi - ct ia diaaSalinr the strong prejudices which ar Hill entertained hy many agauist the grant ia qiwtira. H tha c&rr here made obtains cre - ienc which there is ao room to doubt, fer tr end to all atute application to the kgWatore hostile to the proprietorf. f I Io answer to aa opinion expressed by Sir. iuer that the legielatare ought again to open the door oflitigatioa, andbypassiut' aa express law tor that purpose admit certain person, petitioners from another state, to coo test the right of the proprietor of the steam - boat grant, Mr. Celden aiks with much force whether the legislature of of this sty outfit to admit tranger to in - trade opoo those who have relied on it authority and good faith, to the certain rum of the latter, by oodles and expensive Uw wilt, and by a suspension, io t fleet, of the exclusive right, while the rail are depending. Ton would o - blige our citixen (my be) who have embarked their property aader tha sanction of our own laws, and the Jadgment of our own courts, to give security to the person that may hereafter volunteer in a contest a to the constitutionality of these statute. And If It were possible yon could be right if the law should be determined to be uucoajtilottfoal our own citixen would be the victim of their reliance upon tht acta of oar own legislature. A to the law which the committee oa the pe tition of Aaroo Ogden reported to the legtsla. ture, and which, Mr. Colden says, would have been In effect a repeal of the grant to Fulton and Livingston, and which, he contends, wai laying the grounds of a litigation that met inevitably have been ruinous to them, he expresses himself ia the following terms, with which w conclude our extract: M Wa this a law which it wa consistent with the saith, honor and Joitice of the state to pas .' Alter Meetrs. Livingston and Fulton had so frequently had the encouragement of the state to expend their money in improving and making their establishments on the Hudson t when Mr. Fulton bad devoted hit whole meant oo the faith of this encouragement : when many relying on the security that the state had held out by re peated act;, and after a solemn decision of the highest tribunal in support of these acts, had in - rested their funds ia the property which tbey bad reason to think was thus protected, would it have been consistent with faith, honor and jus - tire, to pas a law which would have been as destructive of the property to which it related as if it bad been an act or confiscation ."" , We conclude by again recommending to tltose who are desirous of understanding the merits of this great controversy thoroughly, the perusal of the two pamphlets which lie before us. One word more. - Tha writers on both sides, it will be teen, occasionally, have used a quickness of language not quite recondleable te those gentle rulrs of moderation which some persons affect to believe should always strictly prevail in all rases whatsoever. " But (remarks a great wri ter) let Die gentlest of my reader reflect that such a manner b unavoidable, from the nature and circumstances of th controversy. .411 con - roversy it in the literary world, what all war is in the political, an evil necesnarily incident to ilia wretchedness of our present state. In war such acts are lawful as would be criminal out of it. Blows and wounds (Am become licenced outrages. Just so it is in controversy. A tart net? of remark, a harshness of reprehension, and a provoking puintedness of triumph, are alias lawful as blows and wounds in war War caa - i.ut subsist without these : controversy without thoso. And to flgbt fairly without wounding, or to controvert fairly without hurting, is equally impossible." Let It be remrmhered these are the observa tions of a pious and eminent divine. It b understood aa application to the present legislature for a similar act is to be renewed in behalf of a Mr. Sullivan of Doston, who, very couj!stently,allege the unconstitutionality of the grant to Livinfton and Fulton by the state of .New York, while he holds ia lib hand a similar rrant under which he claims a simitar privilege t ho state of Massachusetts to himself I Sound sltam - honti, We are pleated to find that this line has rommenced. T,h Connect! cut, capt. Dunker, arrived this morning from N. Haven, having performed her first trip for th season. For th present moment, tbia must be i great facility to traveller ; to many bridge having been destroyed. GrtenuVA Mtmorial.Yfa invite the parti cntar atteaf on of the public to the ropy of tbe following msmorial, the original of which bas la'ely been tent to the legislature. It is, as will he seen, signtd by some of our most respectable isihabitanU, who feel themselves aggrieved and oppressed by an interference of tha corporation with their property, contrary to reason and jus lice, and also, in their opinion, contrary to the spirit and intention of our laws. Those who must be supposed perfectly conversant with the ubject, who are compcteat to judge, sxd inca pable of misrepresentation, here assert, that the measure has been botfly adopted without any adequate causa and when the public good did not require it. We refer the reader for parti culars to the, Memorial itself. 7h tt hunirablt tht Ugtilnlure tJ the ilale of JtK J or. The memorial of the subscribers, proprietors of lots and parrrlsof land, situate in th village of Greenwich, in the vicinity of the city of J ew - lort, Respectfully sheweth, that by existing laws relating io lite cay of new - Tort, tl,o corpora tion of the said city have very treat and ex tensive powers in oiieuingandrrgnlating streets aod property in the said city, whic h powers. treat as ther are, have been esemsed in way and to an extent not contemplated by the legis lature when the grant of them was ma Je, and have also, as your memorialists respectfully contend, been so used as to produce great invasion of, sum dertruciioo to private property, and been extremely burdensome to individuals without any correypouding advantage to the corpora tior at the community ; of this clasa your me - mortaints with confidence cit the following casn: tsU CinM street. For the making of which, thnogh last than a rude ia extent, more than 19,000 lots have bcea attested and an awossnaeat f more than 159,000 dollar has been collected, allhMgh the plan of the street is aot yet defiui - l Uvely settled, and the practicability of the pro - Tbe abet of lot U probablv rreater than it hor1d be t the precise quality of land chartt - IcJ srith tha Casal - street assessment i 600 acre ; it it impossible to aarertaia tbe pracitt number ntUiia fcnfil arhth 11 ka V. J I JcVityfrTmiUi; U.wt WS.ctaxflyt!ptie - "' ' ' poatd pita doubted by every reSoctiag person, yet the oorporuttoo, 'without any considerable work oo the street, nave asea au inetr umjeuL. to collect th tyeosmeot. td. Th corporation have opened ' several avenues of one hundred feet ia width, the whole extent of the bland, daftroymghoases, gardens, (sec. Jkc for mile ia their coarse, and com pelling the neighbouring property to pay for them, while it was evident to evtry'tody that there were at the time sufficient roads opoo the Island, and that if it wa proper to open the ave nue at all, they onght, in th first instance, to have been made narrower ana of ie exietn, and then continued widened and extended from time to time, a the population and wealth of the city, for the time being, would warrantor justi fy, instead of which those avenue nave oeaa opened in their full extent and in tbo most destructive manner. 3d, la ordering at time whole blocke, and at other time part of block of rateable buildings in the citr of New - York te be taken down at enormous expense to th neighbouring property, in tome case without any advantage and in other cam where the advantage was at most very doubtful of this class was the taking down part of the block at the intersection of Pearl and Cheer) streets and other place. Your memorialist could cite manr other hi' stances in which the corooration have exercised their power to aa extent not contemplated by the legislature and very injurious to the citixen. Butthev bee - leave rarticularir to solicit the at tention of the legislature to the case hereinafter mentioned, in which your memonaiMis are cu - rectly and deeply interested, and which, if the contemplated plan of tbo corporation is permitted to proceed, will produce the most ruinous aod destructive consequences to your memorial istt ther allude to th plan adopted by th cor po ration on the twelfth day of August last, for regulating the village of Greenwich and certain street belonging to U. The village of Greenwic h is situate on the North or Hudsons river, in the immediate virini ty of the state prison, about a mile from the im proved part of the city, and comprising an ex tent of more than two hundred acre, all level or flat land under a hirh state of cultivation. supplying, in a mat degree, the New - York market with vegetables yet, notwithstanding ii uinaoce irom ute city ana its naving no immediate communication by buildlnp with It, the corporation have undertaken to regulate it as a part of tbo city, noon a plan not practicable m iisais, ruinous io your memorialists, ana ex tremely injurious to the city of New - York. The plan adopted by the corpora'jon and now in progress, change th face of the whole village, requiring certain part to be dor down from Ave to seven feet, and e'ier and much greater part to be oiled op to the heieht of several aod often nine feet. This plan is not practicable, because th immense quantity of dirt requisite for this purpose te not to be bad, or if to be had at all it mutt be from a great distance, and its high price would prevent it being purchased It is also ruinous to your memorialist because seme, nay, many of their house will be, by the present plan, sunk 8 feet under ground, while outer are raised as much above it, and if the lots are to be filled up to correspond with the street each lot would cost as much again at it would sell for. Tbe expense of filling; up a lot twenty five by one hundred feet, seven feet deep, estimating dirt at two shillings per load being about five hundred dollars, when the lot itself, wneu niied up, would not, at any time, produce more than two hundred and fifty dollars it costs therefore twice as much to improve tbe lot upon Hi adopted plan as they would be worth whoa improved. In addition to this, hundreds of the inhabitants have not the means, even if they had the disposition, to make such expensive l.nprove - mentt ; their all, therefore, becomes forfeited to tne corporation for non - compliance and them elves turned naked upon th world. In other instance infant and minors bold large parcels of this property, and there a bo law authorising their guardians to expand their estates upon such speculative improvements. In other pacts, church and burying place long erected and used, are now to be. df? down or covered over. In other parts individuals rather than incur the additional expense of filling op or digging out, as required by the corporation, nave abandoned vary large parcels of the said land, valued at thousands of dollars. It would also be injurious to the city generally because it market would, for many year to come, be deprived of the vegetable product of two hundred acre, aow almost exclusively in garden. These detail of injury and ruin might be increased, but your Memorialist persuade themselves that they have already ta - ted a cae which will entitle them to relief and to the interference of your honorable bo - by m their behalf, and thev bee leave most respectfully to refer your honorable body to the delegation from New - York, to the map, surveys and profit,' hereto annexed, and to John Kandell, esq. at present of the city of AI bsnv, and heretofore one of the city surveyors of New - York, who ha carr fully examined the wnciie ground. ior vie truui oi tueir ajiega tion in the premise. There is alto this further objection in prin ciple to the place adopted by the corporation for the regulation of the village of Greenwich. If it be nerestniy to regulate it at all upon the plan now in operation, which your memorial Ut respectfully deny, yet in asmucli a the improvement is to benefit the city of New - York, and is beside to destructive to the private proper'y of your memorialists, your me - innriaiuiu cuncenu mai u snouict oe made at the expense of the city gent - rally, in order mat your memorialists may receive tome com pensation for their land thus to be sacrificed for the public good. Your memorialists further say, that they have caused application to be made to the corporation to be informed why the plan now in operation has been adopted, and have received for answer that the same was necessary in or der to carry off the - water t thi position i denied, and your memorialist contend ami they refer with confidence to the annexed plans and profiles to shew that the water can he carried ort in a manner different from that adopted by the corporation, and which will be free from most, if nut all the objections nrrein aoove eniimrraiea. Your memorialists therefore respectfully so licit irom ) our honorable body relier in the premises, and that an art may h - passed prohibiting the corporation of the city of New - York from furtlier proceeding upon the plan adopted by them for the regulation of the village of Greenwich and its vicinity, and to al ter or modify what they have already done in Atvlum - ttreet. and that if your honorable bo at should deem it at all necessary to regulate the taid village at the present time, tli it the tame may be regulated upon the plan now pro posed by your memorialist, and aa in dutv bound ire.

FaTtrrxvttt, Feb. 26.

Y. i lllinghasi, esq, were committed to jail on a charge of Larceny. In the possession of these villians, were found more than one hundred iron keys, of dif ferent size, beside many . wooden models of kev and imnreasion made on clay. Some of the iron key were newly made, and some in a rough and unfinished state. Many of the keys were w axed for the purpose ot ascertaining me inner construction of lock. The name by which the accused now in prison have passed, since n this place, are Thoma Moor, Benjamin Grayer, and John B. Stubbs, all of them, by profession, mechanic. The former a house carpenter, and the two latter millrights, and emigrated to this place within the last twelve month. It i more than probable that Graver is an assumed name ; that his real name I Benjamin Gray the tame man, who tome year ago by mean of false ke) entered the vault of the old V. States' Bank in Charleston, and robbed therefrom a quantity of gold. A similar plan, these daring villians had devised here to rob the vaulta of tbe Cape Fear Bank. They htil obtained mo - deb of the key of the outer and second lock of the door of the - of the entrance way to the vault room, and had a key for tbe lock of the second door nearly in a state to suit the lock. Tbe leading circumstances of their design on the Cape Fear Bank, where in possession of the officers of the bank, for some time before made known to the public, and but for the circumstances of two robberies being committed the one en the atore of Mr. John Mullin, two weeka agn, and the other on Mr. John Baxter's shop, on Saturday night last, in wl icb last Moore was taken in the act, and which on Ins examination, a disclosure of their whole de. signs was made public, the officer of the bank would, it i more than probable, have succeed ed in ensnaring them in the act of entering th vaults of the bank. One of the men in prison ha since hi con fine m ent, made considerable disclosures, de veloping the whole of their detigni, of which it I (teemed improper now to trive publi city. ' Moo; e, appears to be about thirty five years old Grayer, to be fifty or more, and says he is a native of South Carolina.
