The accounts which wo continue to receive from the manufacturing and miniii" dts tricts are most deplorable. The London money market is easy, interest on billssame as last week ; but bills of inferior character are not so easily done.

Tho commercial accounts are in every point of view much more discour aging than was anticipated. Tho military op erations have had a general influcnco on the Money Market throughout the -vhole three pros idencics, which is adding very considerablo to the other causes of embarrassment. The last advices from Alexandria afford satis, factory proof of the desire of Mohemot Ali to cul tivate and promote Iho interests and conciliate the- friendship of Britain. In compliance with tho wishes of the Oriental Steam Navigation Company, ho has allowed them to placo steam vessels on the canal of Alexandria a point on which ho had been hitherto very tenacious.

Jt'l.Y 15, IS12. Coricspoiulcnct: ofthe Free Press. Washington, July 8, 1842. Dear Sir, I he'think me that I prom ised to write yon ns soon ns I could get com fortahly quartered here, and inform you of 1110 state ol tilings in general 111 the famed metropolis of the Union. Well, 1 arrived hern in safely on Monday evening and found the House of Representatives just recovering from tho excitement of the Vt;to nnd pre paring to mature another Tariff Bill. I fell upon tho Veto at Troy, New York, and, from that place to this, I heard but one opin ion expressed in regard to it hy intelligent Whigs. All agreed thai President Tylcrhnd broken the Inst link which hound him to tlio party to which ho is indebted for his acciden tal elevation, and that he had removed the main harrier which separated him fiom tho Tories. No ono can longer hold the Whin party responsible for his public conduct. Ue lias cut himself completely loose from them, and, io nso no stronger expression, they chccrfuUif acquiesce in the separation. As to tlie effect of the Veto upon the prospects of the two great political parties, all nro of opinion iliut it will tiu us Ibl lunate for tlio Whigs as it will ho ruinous nnd destructive to the great interests of thn country. It will servo to rouse thoin fiom their unnatural lethargy nnd unite them as a band of broth ers in tho cause of the country. It will nerve their arms and animato their hearts anew, in the great contest of PwiTr.cTi.NU the Laiior and Industry or tub People. And in this contest there will bo no retreat ing, no flinching, till the victory is achieved. Such, at least, is the feeling uhich pervades the Whigs nt Washington, nnd such, I have no doubt, is the spirit which will anima'te nil New England, and, indeed, every free Stale of the Union. There is, as you have undoubtedly observ ed in the public journals, a new Tariff Bill under discussion in tlio House of Represen tatives, and the debate on it is to bo brought to a close at 12 o'clock IM. on Tuesday next. This Bill, unliko the one which lias just been vetoed by Mr Tyler, provides for the repeal of thu 20 per cent, clause in the Land Dis tribution Law. With this provision it will undoubtedly pass both Houses of Congress. The debate on the bill has been very inter esting so far. Many of tlio strongest men in the Hotisu have spoken on it since I ar rived here. Among them I may name Mess rs Appleton of Boston, Kennedy of Balti more, Joseph R. Ingersoll of Philadelphia, Barnard of New York, and Everett of your State. The last named gentleman spoke yesterday and produced a very f.ivornblc impression upon tlio members. He alluded to iho lale Executive veto, witli becoming spirit and in proper terms. Ho spoko of tho general feeling 0f indignation which broke out in every section ofthe country as the intelligence of tho Veto was received. He said, witli emphasis, that ho would not believe that President Tyler could have the foolhardiness to veto another Revonuo Bill, in contempt of this storm of popular indig nation, and in defianco of tiio repeatedly declared will of Congress. In discussing tho merits of the Bill, Mr Everett said Ins constituents were mainly Wool-growers, und intimated an intention, boforo iho bill should bo taken out of ihe committee, and as soon as an opportunity was afl'orded, to propose an amendment to increase the duty on Wool above the rate nt present fixed by tho committee. Such an effort will unquestionably bo made, nnd I have gvvil teuton to Mitve that 'it trill be successful. But if tlin attempt should fail 111 the House, it will be repeated intht Senate. And when this proposition is made, nnd the Yeas and Xays arc taken, voti and rear readers wilt liavo an opportunity of deciding which aro the real friends of the Wool- growers, tlio I nigs or the Loco Fucos. 1 pi edict that tho Locos will vote in a mass against increasing the duty. But the ques tion will soon bo decided, and, when the rc s It is known, it shali bo immediately com municated to you. Since I have been hero I have hoard speeches front about twenty diflorcni mem bers, one half of whom were Whigs and iho I 0Cr mf Tjocnfncos. I J livery Loco who Arts I tfl n,r...,l yet adresscd the Committee., Ihh sunken strongly against the principle, nf protection, and most of them in favor of 11 Free. Trade." Tlio Whigs, on tho contrary, have all, without a solitary oxecption within my knowledge, contended with earnestness, for discriminating duties, and in support of tho present Bill. I wish tho honest (armors und wool-growers, tho mechanics and day labor ers of your Green Mountain State could have been present hero in the House of Re presentatives during the past week and lis tened to iho discussion of the Tariff Bill hy tho Whigs and Tories. They never would give another Locofoco vote in their lives. They would unite ns one man to sweep from llioir rugged mountains a pafty whose lead ing nnd most prominent men advocate doc trines so ruinous to tlicir interests and 10 de structive to thoir labor nnd industry. But as they cannot bo hero I will endeavor to keep them informed, through your columns, of the doings and sayings of tho two oppo sing parties, during tlio remainder of tho ses sion. Since I commenced this letter, Mr. Hud son of Massachusetts has made a most ad mirable spcocii in favor of the great Whig principle) of fostering and encouraging tho industry of llie country. It will soon ho published in the columns of tho Boston At las, nnd I hope you will give it to your rea ders entire, lt is decidedly the best snoecli that has yet been made on the Tariff ques tion during thn present session. Mr. Hud son is a plain Whig Farmer, perfectly cour teous in his language and dcpoitmont to wards his brother members, and Republican in his habits and associations. His speecli was a perfect specimen of logic, nnd a most conclusive and triumphant defence of the doctrine of Protcciion. You will recollect thai ho mado a sncech at the oneiiintr nf il,n present session, which was published in all the whig papers of the Free States. The speech which lie has just concluded is supe rior even to his fu st effort and should ho care fully read hy every Farmer in Vermont and every friend of his country. I hough it is after eight o'clock, the House is still in session, listening to a most stupid i rec lrailc speech from Burke of New Hampshire. I will write yon again the first part of next week and give you u more full acco'unl ofthe proceedings of Congress. G. W. L. STATE OF THE COUNTRY. We are not in iho habit of croakine.

THE THIRD VETO. This act of the President has excited at once the astonishment nnd indignation ofthe people throughout the country. It comes to us without the apology of Constitutional scruples, which offered a palliation for the former vetoes, but appears as a gratuitous assumption of a share in national legislation, unprecedented in our annals, on the part of the Executive. If argument vvero wantine nel ore to esmblUh .he danger of the ONE MAN power in our Constitution, it is fur nished 10 the fulles; extent by this high handed act of the President, liv nliich lint quill of one man, accidentally in'tho chair of Slate, has iindono uithii simile stroke the solemn net of the people's representatives, becatiie lie did not agree wilh ihem inn mere mailer of opinion. Let not tlio Whig party bo upbraided for nou-fultihncnt of promises, while this madman's sword stands ready, in an instant to cleave their best ef forts to the earth.

It is Truman GALUSHA who is our candidato, a frwc man indeed, of good old Democratic blood, and not the brother ofthe man who didn't go to Pittsburgh ! NORTH EASTERN BOUNDARY, Various contradictory rumors have found a placo in the New York papers during the last week relative to the settlement of this vexed question. It was first said that the matter had been adjusted by our ceding to Great Britain tlio part of Maine north of tho St. Johns River, and receiving in return that part of New Brunswick lying west of the same river. This was subsequently contra dicted, and rc-affirmcd ; but the final result seems to he, that tlio report was groundless, and tho wholo negotiation seems to he still floating, lt is too soon to expect the mat ter to ho closed, though llie arrangement above referred to, may, it is thought, be tlio one finally adopted. The Washington correspondence in this day's paper, and the proceedings of iho State Convention, have crowded out much matter intended for this week, nmo'nsr which are the proceedings of a meeting held at the close of Major Tochman's lectures, which will appear next week. JERICHO CELEBRATION. The late anniversary of American Inde pendence was very rationally celebrated tit Jericho, showing that temperance and rea son have gained a glorious victory in that quarter. A correspondent informs us that tho principles of temperance were carried into every department connected with tho great occasion which drew together such an assemblage ofthe free-born liberty -loving sons nf Vermont. It was a day of national and rational triumph a triumph of liberty over political bondage, and of mind over matter. There was a eatherinrr nf niinm,! . r 3 I beings who knew the value of feodum, as , well mental as political.
