A correspondence lias recently been publish oil, between Mr. I'lvcYolt, our Minister hi Kng land, nnd tlm Government of 'Great Hrilnin, hi rnlaliim to alleged nnrrnarlinicnts upon our righls by Her Majesty's cruisers. Six pover.il instances arc cited by our Minister, in which tiicsp outrages have orrurrcil. 'I'lio first is lli.it m thn case nf the American vessel, the "John A. llabh" which was hoarded by Lieut. Matron of tier Miij"sty'fl armed vessel llie "Water Witch." on the'27 h of March, 1810, tlm crew mustered, and one of tho soini'.'n named Peter Hutchinson, taken awav anil received its 11 'vol unteer on bond of tlm Water Witch.

Ii'out. Matsnn immediately cut 1111 tioard the "John A.

Alter inspecting them, lie an tinutirrd that iho other two complainants were nlisteil n pirt nf the croiv, and if they had i"en itl-trcateil, must apply to the American 'onsul for redress on their return to KioJ.inei n; but tint Hutchinson was at liberty to lcar the vessel at any time he saw fit, and that if he chose to onlcr lis boit ho couul do so. He prnin spil to come alongside soon after, which jie did, and Hutchinson went away with him, and was speedily enlisted as a vuluntcor on board the Waler Witch.

That the nconlii nft'enn- svivania are almost unanimous in favor nf a tar iff, affording protection to their manufactories. That it was with a firm belief that ho would foster those Interests, as they had been assured by himself and his friends, that they cave him their support. To betray them now would bo worse than Arnold's treason. These wo know tn bo tlii? feelings of almost tlio entire Democ racy of the Slate, and wo might say nf tlio whole Stale.

They have given this largo vote under Iho most positive assurance that their Great interests would he protected, and nttdtcoe he to tlie man who should attempt to betray them." I'his is indeed an important question to tlio people nf Pennsylvania. They begin to inquire whether Mr. Polk can betray them. Would it not bo a more pertinent inquiry whether they are not already betrayed, nnd wbcllipr they have not given their votes under false repre sentations from their leaders!

It is further slated that the contemplated invasion 01 Texas hv Mnxicn is abandoned, and it is. settled that llnglanil and France have offered to obtain an ackiitnv ledgmeiit of Texan independence, ni erudition lint Mexico shall hive Iho right to renew the war whenever Texas offers herself lo the United Stales. It is further ruinnrod that President Houston intends to convoke an extra session of Congress. It is not at all unlikely that the rumored negotiation betw een Texas and France and England is founded in truth. THE CABINET. The formation of Mr. Polk's Cabinet is exciting a pnnd deiil of interest nnd specn hilinn, on account of tlio clue it is expected to give to tlm intended policy of his admin islralinn. The belter opinion seems to be that llie red rose of South Carolina will hi triumphant in the new government. Tin ngency of Calhnu11is.n1 in flooring Hit. Viir Buren to make way for something else, hy means of which I'olk was compromised upon does nut admit of any doubt, and therefore il is that the nullificrs arc oracularly giving out the probable composition of the Polknt Cabinet. It seems Mr. Calhoun is to re main, notwithstanding iho industrious cir culation of a enntrnry opinion hy the northern limb, and so all tlm fine superstructures built upon tlio substratum of Andrew Stevenson's premiership arc destined to melt away. Then il is authoritatively announced that the New York representative in tlie Cabinet it is to bo none other or greater than tlio gentle man of the patched trowscrs, in tlio Treas ury Department. Mr. Saunders of North Carolina, Mr. Calhoun's superintendent of the Baltimore Convention, il is said, is to take (he General Post Office, and give an opportunity for (he unfortunate Mr. Wicklifie logo home, to Kentucky. Mr. John Y. Mason of Virginia, who is now in tbo Navy Depaitment, is said lo he likely to remain whom hn is, unless he goes to Eii'dand in place of Mr. Everett. The rest of Mr John Tyler's advisers it is shrewd ly hinted, will have the royal permission to follow Ilcnshaw and Porter into retirement Hubert J. Walker of Mississippi who has heen the Polk central Committee during thu Canvass, will either have u place in the Cabi net or go abroad. it is fm tlier said most positively that Mr. Tyler's appointments of Collectors ifcc. in New York and elsewhere, will ho revised and corrected by Polk. They certainly need it. They were for the most part con ceived in corruption nnd brought fortli in Tim-low Weed is about to retire from ihc chair cdi lorul of ihc Albany Kvcning Journal. Correspondence of the Tribune Washington Nov. 28, 1844. Tlio Southern Members, who are not proverbial for nclivily in locomotion, nre manifesting nn unusual degreo nf speed in their arrival nt iho Capital, nnd, hy some strange accident, they nil continue In gel lo cated at tlio Hotel whrro their Delphic Ora cle, John C. Calhnun, holds forth for the coming season. This'tiniicctislomed energy and zeal, taken in connection with facts al ready developed in oilier quarters, goes to show that iho South is determined to pre occupy the ground ns it did nt tlie Baltimore Convention ; nnd regarding, very properly, llie late victory ns their triumph, caucuses hatn already been held nnd arrangements are being niado to move 'the Southern policy upon Congress nt llin earliest moment, so ns to forrshadinv and fasten the measures of Polk's Administration, in advance of trouble somo influences being brought to hear upon the President elect by Now York or Penn sylvania. Rely upon it, n most thorough and satisfactory understanding exists between the Froe Trade leaders and Mr. Potk, nnd that the only difficulty which ever stood seri ously in iho way was removed by the visit of Hon. F. W. Pickens, nf South Carolina, to the Hermitage somo two months ngn, who got not only every pledge as to tbo virtual recommendation of a repeal of tlio present Tariff, bii'.nffticied llin best possible reronril- i 1 1 ion between thu General and .Mr Calhtimi. Strong affection has grown out nf their an cient 'hate, and tlm " Old Hero" is now a warmer supporter of the Nullifier, whom he threatened, ,nn a memorable occasion, to "hang as high as Heaven," than he former ly was nf iho " Lilllt! Magician," who, hy the way, in consequence nf llie best and most honest act of his life, has sunk himself irre trievably with him who was first his patron and then his President-maker. On the oth er hand the Nullifiurs have signed off all memory of the Forco Bill, so lliat Iho way is lear lo a must advantageous union willi both the Linn nnd the Jackal. Mr. Calhoun will irmain Secretary of State and hive the management of Polk's Government for his own elevation j if not fur the full term, it least for two years, so as to give the tone and secure the patronage. Ifburocs retire during Polk's administra tion, which I much question, he will be suc ceeded hy one of his own kind, nnd who will bo but the iiiitnmaton of his wishes ; perhaps by Senator Walker, who in the mean time may be permitted lo enjoy the pleasant fruits of the English Mission, so ns to stir up a difficulty with Great Britain and raise a war mania for the next canvass, jlark wbetlier the next four months do not realize these predictions ! After the general result of the Election was fully ascertained here, there was almost an universal expression of Loco-Fuco opin ion, in favor of Silas Wright as the next nominee of the parly. Since the arrival of the Southern members, the sentiment is almost reversed, and censure, not praise, is llie language applied to tlio 1 Regency' of which Mr. Wright and Mr. Van Buren aro regarded ns llin 1 head and front.' Tlio Calhoun clique contend, that their princi pies, Annexation and Frco Trade, wero stronger than the opposition made by the disaffected and disappointed of their Nor lliern allies, and as 11 proof ol it, they in stance the disparity between tlio Gubernalo rial and Presidential votes in New-York and argue, lliat notwithstanding tlie barefaced hostility nf the whole forco of Mr. Van Burcn's peculiar hody-puard they wero ablo to carry tbo State. And further, tlwy pro claim at the corners of tbo streets that Mr. Wright nnd his friends must explain away this unpleasant stale of things before ho or they can hereafter receive tlio cordial coun tenance of thu South or their co-operation during iho succeeding reign. All this is WHAT MR. POLK IS ELECTED FOR. Gen. Hamilton, in n letter addressed lo J. J. 0, Soulhntl, Esq. before tbo election, and published in the Nashvillo Union, in speaking of tlio 'South, says : " She 'means In elect Polk, if she can, and obtain, thrnuch lis instrumentality, nn ronthl clinnoe in the PHOMISF.I) WHI POMt'Y OF Till? GOVF.ttN-MF.NT-- n rrdrcst of theevils of which sho complains, nnd n reversal of the iiiiiust and unconstitutional man date that nomort Start Statet are to be admittedin- to this union, hy a prompt, plenary and unrestricted annexnlion nf Texas." Tlio Nnslivillu Union probably would not have published this letter, if the sentiments expressed in it had not been believed to bo those of Mr. Polk. A " distinguished citizen of South Caro lina," nnd one of those polilicans who think that the Union can be preserved only by tbo prevalence of tlio doctrines of iho Carolina School, in n letter nddrossed to tlio editor of the Richmond Enquirer, informs him that the hearts of tlio South Carolinians "are filled willi gratitude nt our triumph, because wo believe sincerely that it would secure the permanent peace nnd independence of tlie country, and preserve iho Union upon the principles of the Constitution Mr. Clay's success would have endangered htilh." By "the principles," ns thu people of Charleston understood them. This distinguished citizen further informs Mr. Ritchie, and .1r. Ritchie imparts the information to the public, that he has taken occasion t sift the character of Mr Polk, mil that ho is quite satisfied with the result. The following is his statement : 1 have ben with Mr. Pulk Ibis summer, nnd ttc went over nil the croiinds fully and freely. 1 know linn well he is apparently n mild nnd retirina man; hut tin sound pnlincnl principles, there is nnIrmer or truer itinn 111 nun union; ne is oinroiejn master 01 lilt) whole field before him, nnd I uncerelv believe, be is an honesl man. Hi? tlllTicullii'S will hcereit; but truth, JidcWynn&firmnns will carry him ihrmish I nnd by these, he will be able to imprtu himself up on the inililution of the country, and become a bless- nig to uic union. The writer of this letter goes on to state the course which must bo pursued "to secure finally the fruits of lliat victory." Ho says thai President Polk PR0CF.F.DINOS OF TUB TEMPERANCE CONVENTION.

LYMAN BURGESS, Pres't E. A. STANsnunv, Sec'y. The American Frigate Chesapeake A correspondent of the London 7'imes sends to that paper tho fol'owing interesting paragraph concerning the remains of the old frijalo Chesa peake : "The old well remembered American frigate Chesapeake, which, between 30 and 40 years ago, wdion under the command of Oninmodoro Lawrence, was captured hy C.ipt. Brook, who commanded His Majesty's frigate the Shannon, ilu rinn the American war, has been broken up for many years past, and at the present time forms a constituent portion of the timber which was used in tho erection of a flour null, situated upon a stream w Inch runs near the town of Dot Icy, in Hampshire. A few days since the work men, whilst engaged in repairing the mill, hid occasion to remove some of tho gable rafters, which formed a part ol the old Chesapeake, and found the wood to be as sound and as fresh as it was on the day when she was first launched. heveral curiously disposed persons have pur chased sundry pieces of this noted vessel, with a view of h iving the wood turned into snuff, boxes and other fjney articles of turnery." Melancho v Accident. We learn by a gentleman from Siowartstown, that two men named Joseph and Jeremiah James, left their homes in Canaan, Vt., on the -1th inst., for the purpose of examining sable traps tlicy had previously set up ton or twelve miles in the wilderne.-s. The day they left home was pleasant and warm, the second day was uncom fortable, and the third snow fell tn tho depth of two feet, damp and heavy, loatling down tlio trees', accompanied with a" heavy gale of winclsj ot returning in due tune, anxieties were en tertained that ill luck had attended them ; ac. cnrdinglv search ws made for them, hut with lilt les cllect until tho 13th lust., when thry wero both found dead, probably on account of cold and hunger. I ho youngest, ngcu about 20, was found first, lying with his face upon ihc snow, or down, ward. From llie position in which he was found it is suppised tint ho fell while travellinir and died without a struggle. Jcrnmiah, aged about thirty, was found about a half a mile from his brother, who from appearances had anticipated his fate, giien up all hopes nf reaching his family, nnniMing of a wife and three small children, and nude such signs as were within bis power, which might lead to the discovery of his remains ; this Im did by breaking the top's of hushes near where II s body was found. The places where they'cnrainped the first and second nights were fnund, where, from ap pe trances, thoy had a lire; tho third night's camping ground has also beim found, but it is thought they wore unable to obtain a fire, and consequently died. .V.
