DELAVAN, A DEFENCE ACTD A EBV1EW. f> lAe Edittr of tttt ttufajo Democracy In a recent number of your paper, I observe a communication, purporting to come from EDWARD C.

The adoption of this nnusnal node of publicity, and more especially with his gratuitous and unwarrantable personal allusions to my- self, the Indeeoronsness of which ia paralleled only by their Injustice, Induce me to notice a few of the miny etatements and inuendos contained in that letter After unequivocally and endorsing Oov.

One of those Hon. Mr. STBBBINS, of In his place in the Assembly, repelled, with Indignant eloquence, the im- putation cast upon him by Mr. DELAVAN, an unauthor- ized, slanderous and unjust. The other Chancellor not jet spoken, and pily (bribe weak- ness of sn old friend may Induce nlm to remain silent but I am Informed that whose relations to the Chancellor are st leant as intimate Mr. D.'s, fuel indig- nant at the liberty which the latter has taken with name, remrmbering ai they and Ihe public generally do, that a letter from him, giving a strong, clear expression ofopir Ion In favor of the constitutionally of the Liquor bill lact year, was read by a Senator, his plicj dur- ing the pendenev of Ihe debate upon the question. Dut It is not furprlaing to fiud a man who strenuously oppo- sed tbe passage of a prohibitory law as late aa 1833 and 1653, and exerted his inllueuce to induce members of tlie Aosenibly to vole it, should found misrepre- senting frit nds, and giviog a siab to us most vital principle In 1W5.

But admirable stroke of policy was ren- dered abortive through the strong sense of Rev. Dr. MABBH, whose long experience had taught him that Mr. DCLAVAN'S leadership must necessarily be disastrous to any cause, and who immediately obtained the floor, and facetiously appropriated both the eulogy and nomina- tion to biinself, declaring bis determination to accept ihe latter, and stump the State to secure an election. 1 he tool of Mr. DELAVAN above referred person whose own "political some three years ago, Induced him, when a candidate fbr the Legisla- ture, to claim Temperance support by virtue or his antecedents, and that of the opposite Interest by direct tatiahclory to and dispatched lo Syracuse with letters of introduction to various persons, myself among others, asking their cooperation with messenger in a measure which would be explained by blm, and which was to bring forward Mr. DELAVIN as a compromise candidate In the Wtilg Convention then about to assemble In that city. Tbese facts explain, also, the movement attempted to be set ou foot st the Auburn Convention, to dlHcard all pravloua and make a dlatlnol Temper- ance ticket. So much for his disclaimer of political as- pirations, which, even if they existed, could constitute no just cause of reproach; but the falsehood which de- nies a palpable fact, and the malignity reeeittng from disappointment wUek seeks the Executive by iWtoua opposition, an very diAront and can n ot be judged so charitably.

The positive and determined beginning! with resolution to accomplish tho actual ptirpow, has I been left to the present Mayor, and he baa taken hold of the work with ahtartlness of will that leaves undaublad tho ultimate accomplishment of the task undertaken. We subjoin a sketch of the first night's labor, ibe Eighth and Fourteenth Wards, It seems, wore chosen being the most feasible Introductory fields of on- elnugbt. During yesterday, accordingly, were Imparted by tbe Mayor to TUHMBULL and KiseNBR, to have last evening a suffleleM number of men In their renpecllve Wards, detailed to arrest all prostitutes found walking tbe within their as- signed The Station-houses of two Wards, from cf o'clock till 0, presented spectacles of unusual and busiest activity. At tbe Eighth Ward Police Sta- tion, twenty were within a short time slowed la cells; and at the Fourteenth Ward Station, within tbo same period, twtnty-fow were Inducted to ba- nlgnly assigned for their temporary use. Of course, In- telligence of the predatory warfare spread as by tele- graph among tbe unfortunate proscribed, and as might be expected, a hasty retreat, when retreat was possible, ensued to their diversified haunts. This will account for the limited number of arrests. Strenuous opposi- tion of mi gbt and Invective was made by many when arneted. The Idea of''durance vile" was evidently repugnant to most; tho majority, however, with cha- racteristic bardlbood and brazen effrontery of daring yielded to necessity; a few there were whose un- checked tears betrayed the woman left.

LONDON, Friday, March 9, 1U3. This day last week we were suffering in a gicat dearth of news from all parts of the world, there was a telegraphic dispatch in the moin- ing pa ers, to the effect that the Emperor of Rus- sia was vrry ill, but such rumors have rear.hed us too often to have made much impression on our mind. Few believed it. But the present Europe- an crisis seems to march by startling, undreamed of evcntp. Credited reports turn out to be false doubted intelligence pioves true. The Emperor fiirholat it dead Such was the startling news placaidfd at the door of Regent Quadrant News-room, at 6} o'clock ID the evening and this fust announcement of the important event to the people of the great thoroughfare at- tracted, as late as 10 o'clock, such crowds in front of the said establishment, that the circulation, not only on the largo pavement, but also on the carriage -road, was considerably obstructed, the intelligence having, at times, been proclaimed, ur.dcr deafening cheers, (I do not say this aa a compliment to the English people.) in loud voice, for the edification of those who could not approach near enough to read it, or could not read at alt. I might have sent you a few lines (though it was almost too late tor the notifying the fact, but the steamer was one for Boston, and so I knew you would hear of it by telegraph, and more than I might have had time to tell. Now the event is fully one week old, and the immense sensation it caused has almost entirely subsided. At first the sensation uttered the word ptare, now it has lost some part of its confidence. The rose, but they declined again. L'Empereur mart, vive VEmptrntr. ALEXANDER II. is Ciar of all the and his brother CONBTANTINE took the oath of allegiance, and so did the army. MENSCHI- KOFF is recalled, the order having, it is aaid, been sent to him from the late Emperor. General GdRTiCHAEOPF succeeds him. The manifesto of ALEXANDER speaks of his resolution to follow out the views of PETEI, CATH BRIBE, ALEXANDER and his father but the credentials and instruc- tions of Prince GOBTBCHAKOFF, the diplomatist, are renewed. Then signs pro tt wmtrf peace. I will send you my dataiUd views on the question by next mail. For tbie time I must restrict myself to the shott remark that the death of the Emperor NICHOLAS fau not improved although it may not have in- jured them. Taw Prussian treaty if vtill and FuDMtCf WIU.UM b net likely to tarn against ALIZAITDRB II., when pntyecta for a mediator seem to be brightening up.

What dispensator of eternity The Archduke WILHELM goes, at the same time, to St. Petersburg, to condole with and to congratulate the new Czar. This Austian Prince-Envoy is, by the bye, a personal friend of ALEXANDER II. Sardinia replies to the "dead and declares war against him. I am told that NAPOLEON will address the two regiments, which are to be reviewed to-morrow, on their start- ing for the Crimea. It is expected that he will throw some light on what he' is about to though I doubt if he knows it himself. There are strange doings in the Allied armies de- fore as well as off Sebastopol, and peace will sure- ly bring numberless Revelations from the Cri- or Mysteries of the For the present, the public must be contented with rumors, or stand aghast before some not to be dis- guised, but unexplained fact of startling nature and dimensions. Such a fact has reached us late- ly from the fleet.

Well, surely, this is suffi- cient news from one single ship "off Sebastopol." A rumor of a different, but equally important sort, has reached us, to the effect Inat a French Gen- tral has been detected to ruve been in secret com- n.uiiication with the Russians m Sebastopol, ever since the aicgc has been laid to tnal place. There were pliicards to be seen yesterday in news-room windows, announcing The treason of a French officer." A nice compliment to "Our powerful ally."

Well, your indignant cen- sors will hare seen, I suppose, thus time, that you told nothing but the truth There are, indeed, few letters hum belorc Sebastopol" in which some cases of desertion arc not noticed. They occur mostly in the French camp, now and then in the English, never or very seldom in the Turk- ish contingents.

The partial elections that hare taken place in consequence of the recent ministerial poiDtruenta went on, it is true, smoothly but a general election would. the erasaberiof energy of the people, and paity teehng would, at all events do its utmost to eicite the country. Tha famous pamphlet has done immense service in respect. You will remark that after a silsstte of several days' duration, all "the papers come oat to criticise and to comment upon its statements, some of which may be incorrect, but not to an extent to destroy that air of authenticity which pervades ika exposition of the imperial policy of the war. Here it is generally believed to have been written at the der of Prince N iPOLEO.i. I told you my views Con- cerning the authorship, and I still believe them, to be correct. I received a letter from Parfe, in which I am told that NAPOLEON is fifaly resolved upon cony ing on the war. After the rerelav- tions ef the pamphlet, as well as in the dreaded light that is likely to coma foith from the inquiries of the Select mittee, his Decembrish Majesty considei a hit man with the army if the eipedilion to Crimea should return re mfecta.

I have, of course, no opportunity to judge from my own eiperience the official and popular spirit ia France and thus I give you what t received, without endorsing or denying its correctness. This one thing, however, I must add, that the person whom these views come from has vary good sources of information.
