g the night before the principal part of Hamilton's speech went to show that no reliance ought to be placed in Mr. Burr. In the election which ensued Burr was defeated, and, though Hamilton had taken no part in the canvass, his influence was such that Burr attributed his defeat to him. Burr, defeated and politically ruined, evidently determined on revengeā€”a revenge that nothing but the life of Hamilton would satiate. Dr. Charles Cooper, of Albany, had dined with Hamilton at the table of Judge Taylor, where Hamilton spoke freely of Burr's political conduct and principles only, to which he declared himself hostile. Dr. Cooper, in his zeal, just before the election, in published letters, said: Duel between Hamilton and Burr. Hamilton and Kent both consider Burr, politically, as a dangerous man, and unfit for the office of governor. He also wrote that Hamilton and Kent both thought that Burr ought not to be trusted with the reins of government, and added, I could detail a still more

From all he could learn, he was satisfied the Banks did not intend to make a speculation on the necessities of the mercantile community, and he was therefore in favor of adjourning sine die. Mr. Geo. J. Sumner concurred with Mr. Fox. No general plan in relation to exchanges could be adopted, and the merchants would, therefore, be compelled to act each man for himself. Mr. Taylor favored another meeting, to hear from the conference committees of the banks. Mr. A. K. Parker could see nothing left for the meeting to do. Merchants owing debts at the North would be compelled to pay the current rates of exchange, whatever they were, or to decline to pay. The matter was in their own hands, and each one must act for himself. He desired to see some arrangement made with the city Banks by which the notes of solvent country Banks would be received, and thus save the re

A Discovery. --The military police, through information furnished by some soldiers arrested for drunkenness, made a descent yesterday on a house in rear of Lumpkin's jail, and arrested a Norfolk free negro named Moses Taylor, and Thornton, a slave of Mr. Lumpkin, on the charge of selling liquor.

der and spy, now under sentence of death at New York, have been referred to Judges Advocate-General Holt for examination and report. There is little probability of a commutation of his sentence, as if that should be done there would be no reason for the execution hereafter of such desperadoes, whatever might be their crimes. Affairs in New York. A letter from New York, dated the 23d instant, says: At a meeting of merchants of this city to-day, in Collector Draper's office, Moses Taylor presiding, it was resolved that measures be taken to duly celebrate the recent victories in a manner commensurate with the grandeur of the Union armies over the rebel hordes, and the appreciation felt by the people of this city and the country at the fact of the re-occupation of Charleston by our loyal brothers in arms, together with the fact that the flag of our country again floats over the walls of Fort Sumter, should be made apparent in a fitting manner.
