The commencement of General Harrison's Administration dawns most auspiciously. Tho mop whom ho has called around him as his con stitutional advisors-, will form the ablest cabinet that has strengthened any administration since tint of Washington. While the selection gives tinniingled satisfaction tn the friends of the now administration, it leaves no cause of complaint to its opponents-, llvorv one feels, whether willing or not to confess it, that in such hands-, the great interests of tho country are safe. No Cabinet could bo otherwise than one of groat strength, with Daniki. Wr.nsTnr. at its head, and when the other high places are filled by such men as aio announced for his colleague?, tho people feel that their cfibrts to rescue tho country from the hands of faction and misrule, have not been unsuccessful. Well may we congratulate cadi other upon this auspicious commencement oftho great work of reform ; and proudly may wo challenge a comparison be tween the new cabinet and that which it will succeed. Mil. I'lCKK.WS' KIU'OUT. The committee on Foreign Allans, to whom was referred the correspondence between .Mr. Fox- and Mr. Forsyth in reference to the arrest of McLcod, havo made this reference the occa- sion for a detailed report upon tlio goncral as- pect of our relations with dreat llritain. This report, it cannot ho denied, is very warlike ; and were wo seeking reasons to justify an imme diate declaration of war, this report would furnish them, and set forth in a way too, to "stir men's blood to mutiny and rage." Tho factF, wo bo lievo aru substantially true, as set foith ; nor is tins all : they havo been iqurtlltj true fur a hum ferial.

Ten millions was placed at the discretion of the President to prevent aggrcssVi in Maine ; hut the President heeded it not, ai.i tho British proceeded to erect barracks and station their troops upon the disputed territory I And of so little consequence was all this regard ed, that it hardly received a passing notice in the annual message. Hut noir; after sleeping over these outrages for years just as the ad ministration is retiring in disgrace, those griev ances arc hunched together aud put forth in an itillainatory report, amounting, in ellcct to little lesn than an embryo proposition for a tear The object cannot bo mistaken. It is to preju dice the adjustment of these questions hy the new administration. Can any thing appear more contemptible 1 But as we before remarked, tho facts set forth in tho report are substantially correct. Serious dillicullics exist, which it will require the ut most prudence and firmness on the part of our government to adjust satisfactorily. The ques tions must and vvill he promptly met hy tho new administration, and it is hut just that they should have the opportunity to adjust them without a resort to arms. This done, the nation will he prepared, if need be for the last resort ; and in that event, wc shall have but one party.
