R I O T I H T R O Y . Tlicre wat a riot in Troy yesterday, which com­ menced in tho forenoon and continued with more or less violence until evening, when it was quell­ ed by the presence of a miliwry corps. It origi­ nated, as we are informed, from a supposed indig­ nity offered to the m«m jry of St. Patn-k, by soiue boys parading an effigy through lho streets, s e ­ veral affray* occurred during the day, in which it ia said, two or three were hilled by blows and chance shots, and others were severely wounded. Towards night many of the rioters appeared with arms and matters assumed so threatening an as­ pect, that a company of cmnis was called out, and headed by lhe civil authorities, proceeded to the tcene of confusion, w hich vvas in the south part of the city. Peremptory orders were given lo fire upon the mob at the slightest resistance. The rioters tied without giving them the opportunity. Some ol the ringleaders were seized and sent to prison, and by tiie aid of the military and a double watch, quiet was maintained through the rest of the night. Thus closed another disgraceful scene of tumult, terror and bloodshed, with a loss of life and limb fully equal to a Florida battle, and a resort to arms for that protection which the laws, disregarded and despised, are no longer capable of affording, against the fury of a mob. A pretty commentary this, upon that cautious, mincing phraseology which iightly'glsdes over such outrages, covering up their atrocious features, and speaking of the sufferers as those who, by their own imprudence \have been subjected to the consequences of po­ pular indignation !’’ JPoslcript .—This information vvas furnished by a friend in the early part of the day, but we learn a* our paper is going to press, that no lives are lost.

An engineer on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad who sometimes since accidentally while in the discharge of his duty ran over and killed a y o u n g man has become insane, in consequence; and it is feared will not survive. T h e first s y mptom of his insanity was mani­ fested by liis repeatedly stopping the engine, and calling to the attendants to rescue a man under the wheel—being under the full impress­ ion t h a t he saw a person fall on the track ancl heard hisdying scream; and it vvas often m a n y minutes before he could he made to realize th a t it vvas merely a vision.

'W a l l S t r e e t , 12 o ’c l o c k . — T h e present is t h e . m o s t g l o o m y day k n o w n in W a ll st. for years. *■ T h e n e w s from England yesterday, o f a farther decline in cotton , and o f the bad s t a t e o f th e 1 m o n e y market, has had a sym p a t h e t i c effect on our ow n exchange. Added to w h ich is t h e re action o f the deplorable condition of things at the far S o u t h . -We have been told that from m a n y . p l a c e s at the- S o u t h , hardly any thing is now paid;- and for several days past, immense amounts of protested paper liave been coming back upon the drawers.— There have been several recent failures in this city, of which no public mention has been made; but the suspension of the extensive house of the Messrs. 'Josephs this morning, has caused a sensation which it would be idle to conceal. We learn t h a t they had an offer of a million from the Bank ot the U. States, but judged it best to stop for the present.— The fall of stocks is very great. (ETOno O ’ Clock .—L e t not the public s u p ­ pose things are worse than they are, or thait there is any tiling like a general crash. The case of the Messieurs Josephs, thus far is rath­ er one of suspense than a failure. ' A house at New Orleans has failed, iiaving a million ot the funds of the Josephs. But the latter have the guarantee of a n o ther house for a million; and if this house has not failed,of which there is no certainty, the Josephs will go on. And it not, negotiations are on foot, which may effectually relieve them from existing e mbar­ rassments. I t is not believed by many, that there will be any mercantile failures is\conse­ quence of this e vent. D- U Wo are requested to inform tiie public, that a CONCERT of Sacred Music, will be given in tho Methodist Church, tin’s (Wednesday) evening, at half past six o'clock, under the direction of Mr. Newell. tCT T h e article from the Plain dealer, on Mr. \ an Buren’s Inaugural, exhibits that gentleman in liis true light. It vvill be attentively read. O ’ We h a v e reason to believe that the Van Bu­ ren men helu another caucus on M o n d a y ev e n i n g last, relative to the coming charter election. T h e wags of our city have been in a merry mood for a fortnight past, relative to appointments said to have been conferred upon some of our citizens, by lho powers at Washington. T h e first office mentioned, is that o f Secretary o f War ; but as the spoken o f is still pursuing his old vocations, w c presume there is, to s a y the least, some mistake in the r u mor. T h e 2nd office is the governorship of Wisconsin ; the rumor of this appointment has gained more cre d e n c e than a n y o f t h o others, and many of our citizens already congratulate them ­ selves on the honor that has been bestowed on them. Tho last appointment is that o f Indian In­ terpreter-; %ee have more belief in this appointment than in cither of- tho olhers, as tho spoken of, in this instance, is qualified for the office ; ono of his qualifications—wo s a y nothing of his notoriety asi a Ilippunt linguist—is that ho discontinued his sub­ scription to a-religious newspaper because it pub­ lished the numbers of '< William Penn” on the In­ dian question—he could not bare to see a religious paperdiave any thing to do with politics I— (jus­ tice, w e presume, in his estimation, ha? nothing to do with either religion or politics)— but this qual­ ification is more than counterbalanced by the fact tiiat the spoken oj on a recent political journey (we do not say that he went after the office) trav­ eled on a Sunday, for which offence w e leave him to the tribunal o f t h e church. W e beg the reader to understand that vve do not vouch for tho truth of any of the above rumors __ we give them only as town talk. B y man y, how- ever, they are spoken of, with much seriousness, and tho hope is expressed that if not true they may soon be realised, Tho Van Buren men have their mouths full on tho subject, and many oftliem wish us to mako a formal announcement of tho appoint­ ments, (which wc will do ns soon as any ono of them will give us permission to use his name as good and sufficient authority 1 Friend Riggs.—h\ iho last Cabinot you “ c o n ­ gratulate our-citizens on the passage of-an act to divide the city into four wards,” Now, sir, as the phrase \ congratulate our citi­ zens, ’ necessarily implies som ^.general benefits to be diffused among \ our citizens,” by the passage of said act, you will confer a lasting favour upon many skeptics, by informing them in vvhat those benefits will consist. But should you, after due reflection, become impressed with the belief that all the \spoils pf this great victory,” are to be divided among the favored few, oy whom, and for whose benefit the application was got up and prosecuted ; then your article requires corree.tion, and should read thus : \ vv e congratulate (some dozen or two of) our cit­ izens on the passage of an act to divide the eity in­ to four wards, hy which they will be enabled the more s u ccessfully to carry out their many selfish projects—promote their individual interest—and reject all general, or particular improvements that will not roll tho dollars into their own doors.’> ■ - W a t e r - s S t r i ; e t . Really, our correspondent has act us in a think­ ing mood, and after nil we do not know that wc have much cause for our congratulations. It is, or rather was, thought by many of our citizens that by increasing the number o f wards, it would al least be more creditable to our c it y ; and that by enlarging the representation in the corporation there would bo better attention and consequently more business done; and that by adding to the board o f supervisors, our cily would bo more properly represented, on tho score of population and taxation. T h e first of these reasons, is per­ haps well enough; aa lo the second, if we are lo have another 6 Uch a corporation as the present — -— -----------------(We have some good friends there, so w e shall leave i h e reader to infer our idea 1 though wa believe it is generally understood that not one o f the present board will be brought forward for re-election.) The last consideration, is probably the most important; and but for the interference o f some of the country supervisors, and the influence of Mr. Knight, the city would have had an addition o f two supervisor* ns was ori­ ginally intended. As our correspondent seems to doubt nny \ general benefits” that may flow from th e extension of our privileges, w e hope ho w ill give his reasons more at large. S. S.

Increase o f Spoils .—Tho Regency are again plundering the People for the benefit ol'oflice hold­ ers. A bill passed the House today, the title of vvhich concerned Common Schools, but the object of which was to add $1,750 to'the Salary of the Superintendent. The Secretary of State lias a sa­ lary of $1,750, which this bill doubles, so that he will hereafter luxuriato on three thousand-five hundred dollars a year. Thus, while the people, by experiments and specie orders, are at the mer­ cy of usurers, T H E O F F I C E - H O L D E R S ARE T O HAVE T H E I R SALARIES INCREASED !

Journal o f Saturday. [O ’ W e misapprehended the provisions o f a bill wliicli passed the House on Saturday. That bill, -instead of adding-$l,750 to the salary of the Su­ perintendent o f Common Schools, only incrensed that Officer's salary $750, and appropriated $1000 for additional clerk hire. W e inferred, from the coarse o f debate tlmt the whole $1,750 went lo in­ crease the salary of the Superintendent. Having ascertained our error, w e do what the Editor o f the Argus never did—frankly correct it.— Alb. Journal o f Monday. From the Albany Evening Journal. TH E SUPERVISOR QUESTION.—-The fol­ lowing is a copy of the bill introduced by Mr. Pat- teraon, aa it passed in committee ofthe whole, and as it was rejected in tho House :— AN ACT To ENLARGE T H E POWERS OF BOARDS OF SUPER­ VISORS. The People o f the Slate o f Netc- York, represented in Senate and Assembly, do enact as follows: Section 1. The board of supervisors of each county in this state, shall, in addition to the pow­ er now conferred by law, have power, at their an­ nual meeting, or when lawfully assembled at a ny other meeting, 1. T o cause to be levied, collected nnd paid-to the treasurer of the county, such-sunv of money as may bo necessary to construct and repair bridges therein, and to apportion the same among the sev­ eral towns and wards in such proportion as they may deem.equitable and just,-and-to direct the manner of expending the money sorraised ; 2. To direct the raising of ail moneys necessa­ ry for the building or repairing court-houses, jails, clerk’s and surrogate’s offices, poor-houses and houses of correction, and the manner of expending lhe same. 3 . T o appoint commissioners to lay out and o- pen highways, in cases where application to tho legislature is now necessary, and to provide ibr de­ fraying the expense of the same. 4. To cause to be levied, collected and paid, in tho manner now provided by law, such sum of money as a majority of tho electors of any town may, at their annual meeting, have voted to raise for constructing or repairing bridges in such towns. § 2. All persons applying to the board of super­ visors of any county for the imposing ofa tax for constructing or repairing any bridge, or for the ap­ pointment of comrr5—■< ners to lay out m d open any new road,or for ihe building or repairing coun­ ty buildings, shall cause a notice of such applica­ tion to be published once in each week for four successive weeks immediately preceding the meeting of the board of supervisors, in a newspa­ per printed in such county; but if no newspaper be printed in the county, then such notice shall be published in like manner in the place nearest there­ to in which a newspaper shall be printed. § 3. Special meetings of boards of supervisors may bo called be the clerk of the board, on the written request of a majority ofthe supervisors of the county. The passage of such a bill would have worked a most salutary reform in legislation. It would liave brought home a portion of lhe power which is now concentrated at Albany. Tltoso best quali- fiod to act, would have been charged with all the local legislation. Tho business of the towns nnd counties would have been done quicker, bctterand cheaper. But tho Regency will not yield a parti­ cle of their power. The people must come to’Al- bany for the privilege of making a road, repairing a bridge, or rebuilding a court house. The doctrno that the people aro capable of taking care of them­ selves, is out of fashion at Albany. SCHENECTADY LllfilARVASSOGlATION.
