THE EVENING POST. TUESDAY EVENING, MARCH I . When will the Mew York Legislature paw the general banking law? is a question asked" in our streets sortie, thousand tiroes a day. "Who can tell? Ilow tan we say at what time any individual, or any set of men, will do an act which it is evident they hare no inclination to do. When will Mr. Loyd Garrison set out on Ins travels through the interior of Georgia? We sincerely hope, however, that the legislature will not adjourn till they hare pasted some law on this subject, The question is between banking, limited to those who hold special charters, and banking; followed like any other business by whoso pleases between monopoly and freedom, between partial and general legislation. If we are not allowed to have the one we shall have the other. If wc do not pass a general bank ing law at this session, we shall hare a but tie at the next for a new Latch ot special charters, "called for by the business wants of the community" a battle in which they who resist the solicitations of the capital ists, and their jackallsthe speculators, will have need to fagbt manfully and desperately, or they will be overborne and conquered. Let the legislature then, at the present session, give a pledge that they do not intend to return to the practice of special lcgisla tion the unjust practice of giving away, or the corrupt practice of selling privileges and prerogatives, which are arbitrarily limited to a few fortunate or favored persons, and from which all others are tyrannically ex cluded. Let them pass a general banking law, though it should be good for nothing; though it should be such a law as no discreet person would for a moment think to avail himself of ; though it should be wrap ped up in harrassing formalities and restrictions, quenching its spirit and making it a dead letter. Let us have the law notwith standing. At another session we will improve it, simplify it, and strip away the incumbrances that make it ineffective. Let us lay the corner stone of the true system, even if we build not now; let us at least have an expression of the legislature and the law against the justice of special charters. Let the axe be laid at the root of the tree ol monopoly, and if not a stroke be struck at the present session, the instrument M ill at least be ready when those shall arrive who have the lesolutioa and the strength to wield it. We say not this because we do not think that it would be much better to pass, at the present session, a general banking law, consisting of a few simple provisions under which men could easily act, but because we believe that no such bill will be passed. The question will be between a bad gene - tal banking law and none at all. In this dilemma we choose the lormer. We have been informed that there is a project among, certain members of our party to procure the nomination of Richard Kiker from Tammany Hall, under pretence ot his being popular enough to run against Aaron Clark, and that sundry conservatives in disguise are busily making interest for him. This plot must not succeed. The nomination of Hiker will not be submitted to so vasily as those who are pulling the wires imagine. Kiker is a rank conservative ; be belongs to the very class whose intrigues kept the party in this city divided and feeble, and whose treachery finally left it in a minority. Are we ready to take these men to our arms, to heap honors on their heads, to give up to them the management of the party, and allow them to distract and divide the democracy with their selfish intrigues ? If we are to do this , ret us do it with a grace let us take the boldest and most violent of that faction, let us nominate Benjamin Birdsall, or John L. Graham, as our candidate, and go over in a body to the conservative party. Riker has been nominated by the conservatives, and accepted the nomination ; let him content himself with that honor, and solace himself with it as well as he can in his retirement. The democracy want no sly, supple, bowing, trimming Vicar of Bray to lead them to victory. If they cannot beat the whigs with a true democrat and an ho nest man at their head, let them remain in a minority. Is the public never to be rid of Richard Riker ; is he never to retire ; aftei havioc for so many years made a iarce of the administration of justice, is he to be Mayor of New York for the rest of his life ? The Coxtritt blunzes from blunder to blundtr. It aflirms this morning that the M Bank oi, France is a bank tn eommtrndUt," or in other words a special partnership. The Bank of France, eo far from being a special partnership, is a joint stock concern, a sort M anoi.ymt, as it is called in the French code, governed by different rules from a special partnership. . The notes ol the Bank ot France, which form but a trifling portion of the French currency, might be re ceivrd by the government in payment of taxes, but the notes of banks en etnmimditt or special partnerships, would no more be looked at than any other private notes. In compassion to the ignorance of the Courier on this subject, wo refer it to the French Commercial Codo, Book I. title 3, section 1st, where it may learn somewhat of the distinction w hich exists between the Bank of France and a bank rt comnumdit. The Whiz Convention for Ihe nomination of Msyor, last evening nominated for re - election Ihe present incumbent, Aaron Clark, Esq. As his Honor goes to all the public balls and assemblies to which be is invited, the Convention passed resold' tions approving his course in this respect, and nrg ing him to practice " new steps," (as the Masters ay) in furtherance ol his success in future. Who knows but his Honor will dance into office next month T The Philadelphia Sentinel is informed that no - democrat" have nominated Mr. Riker for Mayor That ioumal may as well disclose its future inten. tion w ith regsrd to the democratic party ; If it means to array itself on the side of Ihe " Times" about to be started in New York, which it calls also "democratic," it had better make the avowal. The measures of the democratic party cannot be sus tained by such journals. We erroneously gave credit for the lateet English papers, on Saturday, to the packet abip Independence, Captain Nye. They were brought by the packet ship Oxford, Captain Rathbone. The Inde pendence left Liverpool on the S tth ol January ; me unoru on ine 1st ot February. CoMrLikt tNTAav. A couple of Whigs, in a con. versation about the scheme of an Independent Trea. eury, acknowledged an entire change in their opi nions, in us lavor, oneoiinem at the same time re - aa .a at a s a marking iiiaiiir.oamoreien - s lale leport. in the House ot Representatives, tecs Ik t tpteck in Congrtts he ever rtad. O ne proceedings of the Common Council bust evening, and various articles in type are necessarily emu ten to - day. Small Bins. Tbe Albany Evening Journal in its anxiety to parade the popularity of the small bills issued bv the banks under the new law. overlooks too fmcl j, pretiictCui ,ue nks would not issue thetn Willi the obligation to redeem them in s pecie. Tbe Journal says large amounts of specie arctxehanged with the banks for their small hills, nnd the" people re delighted with them. Now this is pn - iisclv what the Democratic meniltere of (he Legislature said would be the result. The obligation to pay specie Tor these smalt bills makes I lie holders set a higher valueon them, and increases their circulation. The people are rejoiced to see bank notes which are actually what they purport to be, an equivalent for specie, and therefore welcome ami encourage their appearance. If the bill so vehemently urged by the lederal members of tbe Assembly, ami by tlie same journal in particular with no ' obligation to redeem them in specie had paused, no one would think of exchanging them with I lie bunks for rpcctp, and the very result then predicted by that journal would have really come to para, and their circulation would have been comparatively limited. We believe that in addition to the exchanges referred to at the counters of some ol the Western banks, Ihe same haa been done at Albany and in this city. At least we have the authority of some of the federal papers to this effect, and this is enough for our purpose. Tbi sustains conclusively Ihe argument of th Democratic members in favor of the Senate bill, with the specie paving clause, and cnlircly exposes the false clamour of tho opposition in advance, against this necessary feature of the law. Formidable as were the attempts to keep up in Ihe Slate an irredeemable pa per currency, it is matter ol congratulation that they are frustrated. The Girls Rcarino Book is Probe ind Poet av ron Schools, bt Mrs. L. II. Siooorsrv. New York, published by J. Orville Taylor, No. 123 Ful lei street. Mrs. Sigourncy has given the public a delightful little book, which we prefer to all her other published writing!. It is composed of various short articles in prose and poetry, all original all the work of Mrs. Sigoumey's pen, and all written with a beautiful simplicity suited to the persons for whom the work is designed. This quality ol ajnplictty it is which gives the principal grace tolheve compositions. We looked indeed to find sreat warmth and recti tude of feeling, a pure and kindly morality, and a poet ic imagination, and we have found thsut, hut we hard ly expected to sec the author's superior talent) per forming their task with such perfect eae, without any attempt at display ; in short with such a perfect de votednees to the task betore them. Thoprose pieces are made up of directions for moral and intellectual improvement, narratives, sketches, nnd short me moirs of women eminent for talents run! goodness, The pieces in Verne are of much merit Tin: follow ing is written with much of the suae graceful trim plicity w hich we remarked in the author's prone : The Sixth Blrthdnr. 1 think this mnrniru of a feeble bibe, To whom the rift of life iliJ eem a mil It shrunk to bear.

An arrival from Port a Prince, brings information of the settlement of the difficulties between Ilayti and France, relative lo the payment of the subsidy by the former, under former stipulations. The President of the Island, Boyer, had issued a proclamation to that effect The great meeting at the Park, held yesterday afternoon, passed a series of resolutions on the subj ct of the late duol, which aro forcibly expressed, and will be read with much interest. The New Era says ofthe meeting : 41 It is supposed to be tho largest organized assembly that ever met in our Park. At one time it filled the whole ares in front ol the City Hall, and extended to the posts and chains around the lawn. It did honor to our pre - eminent city. "W e commend its resolutions to universal perusal, for it will be seen that they are not of a party character." The following is from the Journal of C ommerce : The Mkkting in th Park. A tre American is pleased lo say we now league witbjche discip'es of Fanny Wright and Tom Paine" in regard to the late duel, we take tbe liberty to add, that we like our new company very well In the eu in, and are glad it Is no worse. Tom Paine was n Atheist, and Fanny Wright is what she is, but if either or both of them approve, or did approve, thai doctrines set forth in the resolutions ofthe Park Meeting yes terday afternoon, we are tree to say dial in our opinion they come a good deal nearer ihe spirit of Christianity, quoad hoc, than some others who mak - much higher pretensions. However, we must m - inform Ihe American, and all oilier presses which attempted to throw a damper upon tins expression of public sentiment, that they met with oor suc cess. Four o'cljck was Ihe hour appointed for the meeting ; a little betore which time, plauorni was set up fot the speakers and those who were to pre side. Across the top of Ihe platform wan hung a roll inscribed with the words, " The Riches ot the People" "Tbe Rights of their Representatives. " The early hour at which the meeting was hcJ I, necessarily prevented Ihe attendance of the laboring classes; but notwithstanding this, it is estimated that full three thousand perrons wero present. Geo. Wilson. appointed to preside, and adslress. ed the meeting, as dkl also Barnabas Dale, .Alex ander Ming, and two or three others. Men o all political parties attended, and it may be tairly eti - mated aa one of the most respectablo assciraUlaves which ever met lor any purpose in the same place. The proceedings and resolutions will b.; lound in another column. It wilt be seen that cars was taken to keep them free from party politics ; snd that the attempt was in a good measure succttisfuL The Bambers Discharged. The Court ol Sessions room was again crowrSed to excess yesterday at an early hour, with persoSt anxious to hear the Recorder's decision in Hie can T the HambeTs. Mr. B!unt, in behalf of the govern, ment of Great Britain, expressed sain bis conviction or the illegality or the Statute law upon which the Governor had acted, but at the same time contended that surrenders had been lormally mide by the executive in virtue ol the same law, in one in - Stance of which, the party so surrendered had been executed. He however thought it an unconstitutional law, and a blot upon our Statute book that ought t be obliterated without delay. With re gard to the present case, he said, w hatever course m ght be determined upon, he would cheerfully sub. mil to the result. Mr. Morrill read an extract of a letter from the Governor, in which his Excellency stated that he had transmitted to t he Recorder all the documents in bis possession in relation to the matter, and that as be had been informed that other papers hsd been produced since the order for the surrender of the prisoners had been granted, exculpatory of their conduct, he bad revoked his order wun a view mat tbe accused parties mishr. if set at 1 bertv at all. be acquitted upon the ments of the caso as it should appear in view of all the documents before the Recorder. The Recorder said that the affidavits submitted lo him, clearly exculpated the prisoners from the charge alledged against litem, and he had no hesitation in discharging them immediately from custody. They were accordingly discharged lormwitn. nu were received by an immense crowd of their countrymen in Ihe Park, with the moat Jovous acclamations at their safe delivery. Ejtpicsf. " For Ote Evening Pott. . ' I noticed in your paper of the 9th the proceedings of a mactingof the citizens of Westchester county in relation to the crossing Harlem river . with (be Croton aqueduct by inverted The oetea sthle ground of compliint set forth by the remonstre - tors, is that the proposed plan will destroy' the navi gation of the river, and thereby matetiuly injure their interests. 1 hey state that the d.nvrenco u tho cost to the city between the original project and that now i:t contemplation will be only $509, 713. of which vonr nniorial'rrts insist that it would be ineqtulable in Hie extreme, lor Ihe purpose nf savin to Iho I. liable inhabitant. ol the city ol New York tbe payment ol $509,718 to he divided among them that some ol your memorialists should he compelled lo !oe ihe large amounts ot ilitterence. of value of their land and farms bring bounded upon navigable water."

Every land - holder doubled bis valuation as soon as the sur veyors marks indicated the route through his ground ; because, lie knew a great outcry would produce a great award of damages. - The commissioners have louuht their way through great difficulty; impositions of the moct g'anng description have been attempted, and their partial defeat has caused a rancorous ten. ing agVinat Ihein.

Ui course my remarks do not apply to that poitinn nl the remonstrants who "derived their lands from their ances tors long previous to thi; revolutionary war." But ol this very class I will say, that they are now ui their own expense t reating an inpediment to the navigation of this river, in the shape of a new bridge much more worlhy of complaint than the syphons.

The attention of this community baa been called to the plan recommended by the Water Commis sioners, for carrying Ihe Croton Aqtiedm t ucross Harlaem River ; and in an article published in the American of Ihe 9th inst they are charged, together with their engineer, with incapacity and want of skill, in recommending iron pipes in preference to a titxrh brtdao of masonry. This is a work of too great importance to the welfare of our city, to allow any reasonable doubts to xist in the minds, of our citizens of Ihe efficiency of thu plans the commissioners may adopt ; and as experience is the best guide, we have thought the opinion of men of expe. rienc would be useful at this time. We have theie - fore been perniitud lo make the following extract from a letter written Ihe 21st ultimo, by Frederick draff. Eim., the superintendent and engineer of the Philadelphia water woiks, to the chief engineer of the Piew orh water works. 11 win oe reconecicu that Mr. Grafl - has been more than twenty years engaged on Ihe Philadelphia wafer works, during which period Ihry have erected the woiks at Fair Mount, which have jto - tly boen the pride of that city. Mr. Graff ha probably had more experience in laying down and managing iron pipes than any other man in this country, and ns he has received the unqualified approbation ol his fellow citizens, his opinion, expressed without any reference to this controversy, and altogether unsolicited, iniial be en titled to sreat consideraiton. ' It is with much pleasure I acknowledge the re ceipt ol your inteiesting report on the progress ol your great work, and feel gratified that your plans meet the approbation of yi tir citizens, who, 1 natter myselt, w.ll, by your exertions, enjoy, in tlx course ot lour or five years, an abundant supply of pure water : the magnitude of your reservoirs, together with the various connections in Ihe whole chain of the works, are such as cannot fail.

He hoped this bill .would be reported and passed. Mr. Barnard believed that the small bill law late ly passed allowed the banks lo receive these notes. Such was the opinion which bad been given bv dis tinguished counsel, and the subject was now before the Attorney General. He Iru - tcd '.liere would be no need of further legislative action. Mr. Mann stated that tho Bank Commissioners had given a different construction to tho existing laws, from that given hy Mr 15. He believed that Ihe law of 1830 prohibiting foreign small notes was still in rlT. - ct. and that legislation was necessary. Mr. P.

We can never discharge our debt of grat'tudc to this Republic and its liberal citizens, and will bless them at our last moment. We will never forget the eminent coup Bel who volunteered in our cause Messrs. Wilson, Em - met I, McKeon, Morrill and Graham. Their etTurla for us have been generous and noble. We hope, however, we will not be considered unmindful of them when we say that we are particularly thankful to Thomas S. Brady, Esq., the first gentleman to whom we told our story in this country, snd under whose advice we have arted. But for his unremitting exertions, aided as he was by our second counsel, George Wilson, Esq., and the other gentlemen, we would probably have been on our way to Ireland, to undergo a trial and possibly suffer death, for a crime of which we are wholly guiltless.

Kesotviit. i tni tlie course pursued Dy tne Mayor oi tms rilv. anil the Whig majority of the Common Council, to wards foreign emigrants while it violates the spirit of onr laws, and the whole policy ol our government, trom us organization to the present time, indicates a spirit too brutal and inhuman tn exist in a civ ilixed community. Resolved, Thai the perseruUons of indigent foreigners seeking for freedom and ihe means of subsistence under the benignant Influence of ecpial laws, by the Mayor and his woriuy couipeers, un not comport w it n tne nattering tan gunge used inwards them in IKU, when they were vainly at tempted to be seduced into the support of the then styled National Republicans. Resolved, That, in common with our fellow - Democrats throughout the ritv. we will endeavor to elect a Common Council that will be l..inest enough tu pay contractors and laborers on ihe public highways tbe,just compensation to which they are entitled. Kesolved, 1 nat tlie oM enemy to tne democracy never on - tains power without evincing a desire to curtail the interfer enre ofthe people in the concerns of government ; that this riisiKisition was manifested in their strong desire to retain in our state constitution the freehold qualification of electors, whereby tiro hundred andnjty dollars' worth or real estate, and ms. the man, should be permitted to vote, while the poor, but honest and intelligent riti7.en should he excluded by his porirtti from exercising the dearest right of freemen; tliat this disposition is now again manifested by the recent mov ement to obtain a registry of voters, inasmuch as tbe effect of such a law would be to throw impediment's in Ihe way of a poor man's voting. The rich occupant of his ovvn house win expem - nce no inconvenience. 1mm tne journeyman mechanic, though as honest and intelligent as the lormer, may not ne anie to lose a lay in registering unvote, snu woming now in one w nrd and next week in another, will find a more freiptent registry necessary than if he was the owner and constant resident in bis own bouse; Ibat the Whlgs have often Ixiaateil, that it is to tlie operation of such a law, in excluding from the polls what thev are pleased to call the lower oriter ot tne people, that they owe their coutuiuen success in Philadelphia. Kesolved, 1 hat considering, ns we do, honesty and intelli gence as the true basis of ihe elective franchise, we cannot view any attempt, either directly or imbrertly, to alter that basis for a property qualification, or lo deprive the poor man of the invaluable right of freemen, otherwise than as a direct attack upjfi the liberty ofthe people, nnd as such deserving our strongest condemnation.
