Charter tleetion in Hudson, A general meeting of the citizens of Hudson, without distinction of party, has been held on Wednesday, the 55th ultimo, for the purpose of amicably agreeing upon candidates at the ensuing charter election. The first resolution which pasted unanimously, was ' thai a committee of sis in each ward be appointed by the moderator, (bis honor the may or,) to select suitable persons to be supported for charter officers at the approaching election ; to be taken from the tea political partiei, at totally tl may be practicable." They then proceeded in perfect harmony, to make up what they cal lad a " union ticket," containing, in conformity with the resolu'ion, an equal number of names of ear h party, and the meeting dissolved. ' The city of Hudson has, far a length of years, been annu.dt thrown into a ferment and uproar by the two contending parties, which were so nearly balanced, that sometimes one was upper most, and sometimes the other. The wise step now taken, will, we have no doubt, be followed by the happiest effects ia every point of view, anil, if it would not look like assuming too much liberty, we would beg leave to submit the example ef Hudson, to the citizens of New - York, at the approaching election. The recorder has appeared by editor of the National Advocate ia his paper this morning, and put forth defence of his official conduct, iu the nature of a demurrer, as the lawyers term it.

Y'r.obH.serv't. R. SEDGWICK, Of Counwl for dcPU. Law Buildings, April 4tb, 1118. Extract of a letter to the editor of the New - York L veuing Post, dated " ALBANY, March 27. " The senate yesterday decided the fate of the medical bill, by the triumphant majority oi one There bas been no subject before our leguiature this session that has awakened a larger portion of public attention, with perhaps the exception of the duelling bill, and the act for the relief of mrs. Eunice Chapman. The prominent section in the proposed law concernine medical science. rendered it necessary for every student, previ ously to bis entering upon the practical duties of hu profession, to have attended one course ol me dical lectures in some college or university of WIS or Of some oiner iuiiv or i - ouuiry. i iitv would have been imitating the example set by Massachusetts, Connecticut and many other states of the union ; and because of the non - existence of this law are we to account for the depredations of medical imposters which the state of New - York so pre - eminently suffers. This salutary restriction for the better regulation of the proleninn of medicine, was strongly recommended in the inaugural speech of bis excellency the governor, and notwithstanding the boisterous opposition of gen. Root and doctor Sargeant, (a man of vulgar views,) passed tne lower bouse by a respectable maionty. Its importance in rescuing the lives of the community from a horde of ignoble pretenders, and in elcvatiug the character of our state was ably maintained by gentlemen of opposite political sentiments, particu larly by Messrs. Duer, Oakley, Meigs and Bar - fttow. At its third reading in the senate, it received support from the eloquence of the attor ney general, Van Buren, and Messrs. Van Veen - ten, Ross, Hammond, Lantine, I enuergasi and Livingston. It was opposed by .Mestrs. Young, Ogden, and Skinner. 1'he debate on the merits and tendency of the bill were unusually interesting, and the senate chamber was cronded during the different times of its discussion. I shall not now attempt to give you the slightest sketch of the numerous reaons gentlemen ad vaored in behalf of the proposed law. It was abundantly conclusive from all that wasadvanc - !, that the low condition of medical science loudly called for the adoption of improved laws, if we - ver wished to elevate the profession to its wonted dignity, and deemed (he lives of our fI low - creatures objects sufficiently importance for legislative protection. Numerous were the in stances gentlemen related of the outrages committed on the community by unlicensed imposters the meanest of the mechanical arts were more guarded by law than the noblest of the science. On the other hand, tho principal arguments against the bill were that it was tyrannical to impose any restrictions on the practice of physic and surgery j that by the proposed law the sons ol the rich would enjoy advantages de nied the poor, and that geuius, independently of education, was amply sufficient for the exercise of the hen ling art, Mr. Young, a man of pure motives, who labored assiduously to defent the bill, is unquestionably gifted with native talents : he is self taught himself, and puts little confidence in tchqlastic discipline. Books too, he maintained, contained all the student required. According to his views, genius alone will remove the most pestilenthil fever and perform the most complicate! operations of surgery. Mr. Skin nor seemed to contend mnro lor the value ol classical learning to ti,e practitioner of medicine than for an attendance on hospitals. Upon the sense of tho senate being called, for the purpose of striking out the first clause of the bill, enjoin ing an attendance on one course of lectures, it was carried in the affirmative, and of this major number was your senator Mr. frailer Botene. Mr. bowne is, I believe, an enlightened re pre scntative, and also a self - taught man. By his rote on this occasion, he has virtually given us to understand, that your colleges and your hospitals, large and well endowed as they are stated tone, are of no use as seminaries of medical edu ration. He nevertheless can now lay claim to the merit of consistency, as he gave his suf frage in behalf of the bill the last year. Report at .'flhiy says your hospital has received a large porti.in of legislative bounty from the represent ations that have been made of its utility as a me' dical school. " I fear that but few of the important suggestions contained in his excellency's speech will be acted upon this session. . A spirit of reform, which aims at the levelling of many wholesome regulations now existing, too much occupies the attention of both houses, and I have heard some of the wise men of the .New - York district, as well as some of the profound politicians from other section's of the state, give it as their opinion, that the only enact of the agricultural association will bo to create a few additional holidays throughout the country. Cut we do not wholly despair; you have sent us a state representative in Mr. Colden." .1 WUKER OA. From the Albany Daily Adterluer ofAfril 2. The application for a Batik at Cherry Valley, yesterday received its quietus in the Senate, by a majority oi one.. The bill giving banking powers to the Utira Insurance Company, was rejected by a large majority ; and the bill confirming similar powers to the latskill Aqueduct Company, passed by a considerable majority. Imprisonment for debt Wo hare frequently exrT - s. - ed our feelings and wishes upon this sub ject, and we nre happy to find that the joint committee to whom was referred that part ol nu excellency the governor's speech relating thereto, of which Mr. Van Beuren was chairman, have reported a bill te the senate, which n that branch of the legislature is made the order oftheday fi.r Fridiy next. Our limits will not permit ns to publish the bill entire, but the following is a br ef summary of its provisions. 1 he Ull is entitled an act to abolish imprisonment lor debt, and to prevent frauds against creditors." The 1st section declares "That no person or persons whatever, shall he taken him. !. tl.. aa. ,!.. I - ;n i:. .XL '1 ''J1 ued against him "" um iii"' ".u j uny coon m jusitc wilhin this state, otheres the recorder well lo reflect, asJ to re - 1 UJ can"e aclion wising aUer the passing of (his 'act, aad that in all cases, when a party shall be arressed for each cause of action on mesne process, and upon which the snenu or oiner officer wouldbefore the passing of this act, have been required to take a bad bond for the ap - nnnsct of the oarty at the return of the said process, it shall' only be lawful for such sheriff or, other othcer, to require uie parry w to ebdorse nis, ner, or ineir p"'"'"'" " uv Drocess.H but excepts from this exemption,' all actions which are in their nature criminal or ma licious, and which the lawyers denomuiata actions for torts euch as slander, assault ami battery, seduction, false imprisonment, tc. &c. Section 2d. provides, mat in we uui mention ed actions where an execution is issued against the body of the defendant, and he is taken thereon, he shall be imprisoned in dose custody, with out the liberties of the gaol au'Jionseu Dy me existing law. The effect of Ihete twoeectioos is to abolish impnsoument lor Utitl, and to maxe it in actions for wrongs real aud effectual. Section 3d, provides for an attachment against debtors who "designer intend to remove their persona property out of this state, or to conceal the same in some county different from that in which they reside to be obtained on proof of such intention to one of the judges ol the supreme court or court of common pleas, nd from the 3d to the 11th sections inclusive, the bill points eut the course to be pursued upon such attach ment, which is similar to that prescribed in tne act of the S 1st of March, 1801, entitled "an act for relief against absent or absconding debtors." Sections 12, 13 and 14, authorize an attach ment to secure chotet in act ion, where an exe cution bas been returned nulla bona ; and is in tended to remedy the common mischief of debt ors converting their effects into money or selling them for bonds and notes which are not liable to be taken on execution. Section 15th declares, " That all and every grant, gift, alienation, bill of sale, or other as - signmeut, In whatever manner made, suffered, or givenof reel or personal property, with in tent to delay, hinder or defraud creditors of their just debts, shall be void in law : And fur ther, That the parties to such frandulent grant, gift, alienation, bill of sale, or assignment asa foresaid, sliall be deemed guilty of a misde meanor, and upon a convinclion ihcieof before any court having cognizance thereof, shall be subject to a fine not exceeding dollars, and to imprisonment for a term not leas than months, nor more than years, at the discretion of the said court. The bouse of assembly again went into com miltee of the whole on the bill for improving the finances of this state, Mr. Havens in the chair - Mr. Colden, in concluding his remarks upon this bill yesterday, said that he could not retrain from submitting to the committee a view of the stale of our fitcal concerns, which he was coufl - deut must be satisfactory to the committee, and show bow much reason the executive had to re present that the situation of our finances were very encouraging. The whole stock debt of the state, if the proposed plan were adopted, would be no more than one million of dollars. But even this debt would be merely nominal, inasmuch as the balance of the debt of the bank of New - York and other debts due to the state would far exceed the whole debt duq by the state. 1 he whole expenses of the government of the state for the ensuing year, would be less than half a million of dollars ; of course if the whole of the necessary funds for defraying the expenses of the government were to be raised b a capita tion tax on eacn inhabitant ol the state, the tax would be less than fifty cents on each inhabitant. And if such a tax were lo be confined to the taxable inhabitants, the tax need not be more than two dollars and fitly cents And when it is recollected (hat there will be no United Elates' tax, it will follow that not only the government of the state, but the United States would be sup ported by a poll - tax, if there was a necessity of resorting 10 sucn a measure, oi one hundred and fifty cents. But inaimuch as the slate has consi derable funds which furnish a Urge part of the uecessary re7cnue, it wouid net be necessary to impose even the tax of one hundred and hfly cents f and probably a tax of about one dollar on each taxable inhabitant or the stale, would be sutfitieiit to supply all the money necessary to meet the expenses of the state government, and indeed of both the s'ate and national governaieut. It was worth while, Mr. Colden raid, to con trast our happy situation with the condition of the inhabitants or Great Britain in this respect. In that country a poll tax of two pounds eight shillings and eleven peace sterling, equal to a - bout ten dollars eighty - five cents, would be necessary to pay the annual interest on their debt, over and above the taxes necessary to support the enormous expenses of their government. 1'he house yesterday progressed in the bill to the seventh lection, which provides for laying an annual tax of one mill on the dollar of the real and personal estate within this state, until the whole of the stock created by the bill should be purchased, redeemed or paid ; and pledging the tax, or so much ol it as shall be necessary, for the payment of the interest on the said stock. Mr. Duer proposed that the committee should postpone the consideration of this section for the present, as be wished to move a reconsideration of the vote upon the sixth section, f which pro vides that within five years after the first day of January, one thousand eight hundred and twenty - eight, this state will, upon the request of the bolder of any stock created pursuant to this act. redeem the same,) as he wishes to amend this section by adding "and that the whole of the said stock shall at all events be redeemed at the end of the said five years." This proposition was not adopted ; and a de bate arose upon the seventh section, which con tinued until half past three. Mr. Root made l speech of considerable length, in which he de clared that this bill had an immediate bearing upon the grand canal that the object of the miuister of finance, (Mr. Colden,) in introducing this bill, was to furnish funds for the construction of that undertaking and concluded by moving as an amendment, " that the powers of the commissioners of the canal fund to contract loans on the faith of the state, be suspended " This proposition called Mr. Colden up in reply. Mr. Root afterwards withdrew his a - mendment. Mr. Oakley then took the floor, and after a speech 6T about twenty minutes proposed striking out that part of the seventh section which imposed the tax of one mill on the dollar for any specific period, or until the stock created by the bill should be redeemed or paid. Mr. Colden made a few remarks in opposition to Mr. uakiey's proposition i but the committee lose without taking the question. LEU is I 1 TVUEOf XEW - YORK HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. March 28.
