The passengers (of who n there wore a goo I. ly number,) w ere alimst all in their berth?, sleeping sound1', when the "Oregon" struck, larboard side oi, come what abift the wheel. Her starboard paddles were almost clear of the water, while every moment she was settling down on llio other side. When the passengers at about five o'clock, wore taken into the lorry bjal, there was three or four feet of water in the cabins. The first concussion was tremendous and yet po spacious was Ihc boat, and so much room was afforded all for moving about and the day hav. ing broke, loo there was niuch lc:s confusion than us tally attends such accidents. Although t largo portion of the passenger wero ladies, wo saw nothing like fainling. and heard no hys terics. Everything was done calmly and wilh out the manifestation of anything like foolish alarm. And yet things looked critical for awhile i The " Iravollor " did nut d iru to venture along 1 mac, lest the should fall Into Ihe same peril with thnc she was desirous promptly to rescue ; and, until the furry bo it caiiio up, and .acted in conjunction wnh her, her well-iii'Miit elloNs could avail but tittle. Meanwhile, tho " Wor cester" came up, passed around us, and appear ed ready In give us any aid in hur power, but seeing lis well caro I fori came direct lo the city. Doling all Ihi-, II, i; I ir board guard of llio "Ore pin" wis sensibly sinking more and more, and the tide was very strung, the "g lie," vv ith Ms whirlp in!, In i!;mr anything bat atlrac'ive.

St. John behaved with greit rnolnes and di-cretion, and llio baggage. in i-ler of tl OreL'on" alike dis. linguished him-'lf in the dilVuult position in which he was plarcd. Under simo circunislances, (for instance thoso of Ihe' Sw illovv,") much alarm, if not, indeed, loss of life, must have ensued I rum the fact that in my of the slate room doors, on the starboard side of the "Oregon," were lound to be so sprung by the concussion, as to render all attempts to unlock ilium altogether impractica ble. The w rilor of this was one of several who had to mike their egress through the broken panels of their doors. Some other cur.o'Js acencs wero presented. Wo observed ouo man standing before another, in front of their berths, and knee deep in water, demanding his clothes, which the other had been hurriedly putting on, and offering to the unintentional depredator his own. The mistake lost none of its ludicrotisncss by llio exchange being be tween a very stnut and a very thin man. Oih era lost their boots altogether, and came up lo town in their slippers ; while one of the edito. rial corps of our cily wore home one of his own and one of his neighbor's hoots, leaving the lat. ter to ennsole himself under the same unlucky arrangement. We imagine that ihe injury to the "Oregon" from this accident must prove very considerable. She will probably lloat with the full tide ; hot (he lias an ugly hole in her bottom. It was re marked by some of tho-i- who are cool enough lo be facetious, nn such occasions, tint the ad Tonttiros in the "Oregon" wero relieved by the " Astoria," and e.iiuc into a safe Imbor, under the guidance nf a homeward " Traveller." The transit of the terry boat " I'lnto," right acrn-s Hell Gate, during tint inid-l of our troiihlcs.gavo occasion lor a ch.s,eal allusion, which, ufcojrtc raise) a laugh On reaching the dock of ihc "Traveller." a meeting uf Ihe pissongors was called, and res olutioiis of thinks with pissed, to the captains of that biat tlu "Worcester," and the lerry boil.

She is considerably hogged, and great fears are entertained that she will not be got off without sustaining groat damage. Satuudav, 1 o'clock. I'. M. Our reporter has just returned from the Oregon, She lies on a bed of small rocks and loose stones, which extend from her starboard wheel to within a few feet of iter stern. The noblo fabric stands the immense strain remarkably well : it is hoped that she will not bo weakened in her framo by this accident. 7his, however, remains to be seen hereafter. 7'nere are several holes in the bottom of the huli the largest being about three feet in diam eter. Besides this there aro also several smal ler holes. The workmen aro busily engaged in prepi rations to slop tho leaks. They aro at present taking measure; to spring back the planks into their placoss when the tide rises. It is thought tint by so doing they can slop the holes Ihrough which tho water pours in at present, and with tho aid of canvass, and mat trasses compressed upon tlu planks she will probably be rendered sufficiently tight lo come up by the ne.U high water, or to-morrow morn, ing.

The iuesiion was then taken on rgrceing lo Ihc resolutions ot the benalc, as amended, by icifittsting the President tnuive tho notice, and they wero passed 141 to 41. There was no debate, and the House thus, by an overwhelming majority, maintains it: original position, and stands in the attitude uf sustaining tho President. Previous to the above action on Ihe notice, the House passed, 103 to 01), Ihe bill tu protect Ihe rights of American settlers in the territory oi Oregon until the termination ol the joint oc cunatiun.

C """" - FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 1, IEI0 FIIOM WASHINGTON. Onnoo.v. Tho authority lo nlnogato t lie Convention of Oct. 10, 1818, between this country nnd Great Britain, relative to llie rights of tho subjecTj nnd citizens of lite two couulrics in llie Oregon Tonilory, solicited of Congtess by tlio President ill his annual Message, has at Innglh, afler four months' debate, been gtanluil, by ;i jiiint resolution which lias passed both Houses. Il received the signature of the Speaker oflho Hons" on Fiidny, and having been passed by tlio Sen ate as amended, it will doubtless receive the signature of the Vice President to-day. Tho authority thus granted having been rc quesled by the President, and tlm negotiation having been suspended, to await tho result of the (lub.Uu on the question, it is probable tin notice will be given without delay, although it is left nt his disci otion to defer il. It re mains to bo seen, how far the views nf llio President, in regard to tho extent of claim which he will insist upon, nnd modified, either by the terms of the resolution, or by the opin ions which have been expressed by members oflho Iwo Houses, in tiio course of liio de bate. Until ihis shall hu known, it is dim- cult to conjecture what will ho the effect of the notice upon thu future progress of llie negotiation. Our apprehension is, that llie advice implied in the clause of llio preamble ,0 ,1,0 resolution, which suggests n more earn , , , fl, ,. ,. r ,, . 0 urnments lo speedy adjustment of llio con- Iroversy, will be thrown away upon Mr. Polk and Mr. Buchanan, nnd that llio p iciftc vir- 1(1,s ()f ,lu scn; debate, nnd of the res- , .- ,,r i -n r -i r.i olitlion as modified, will lull of llieir antici- ll:,lel1 effecl. A coi respondent of the New York Cornier & Enquirer, alluding to the despatches of Mr. McLano by tho Caledonia, remarks ihat ho undeislands "they inn less satisfactory than any heretofore received, nrisinc proba bly from llio fact Ihat llio Government of Great Britain would take no steps, not con sider thu mailer in any way, till the action of Congress was known.

Editor. : Some writers in the Annals of Education lavs down the following plain rules w Inch, if followed, he assures u, vv ill prove suc cessful in winking the complete destruction of Common Schools. As vvehave been unwitting, ly applying these rules for years ii may both interest and profit your readers to pcruso them. With some slight modifications, I will give Ihem to you, to dispose of as you think proper. 1. When a meeting is warned, in a district, with a view of making provisions for term of school, let all parents, vv ho arc solicitous of hav ing a good teacher and a good school, take care to be absent. Any little hindrance will da for an apology. 2. Procure atearhor at the lowest price pos sible. Don't bo solicitous about his morals, in tellectual qualifications, or capacity for teach ing. Let the qualification that eclipses all oth. er he cheapness. Ii. Lot the School-house and all ils fixtures be inconvenient, unpleasant and uncomfortable Seek lo throw no attraction around the place where five sixths of all our children receive their first and last, and al! their school instruc tions. d. Never gel new books for your children, or if you do, pay no regard lo their character or adaptation to your child. If you can consiMenl ly, defer the purcha-e of any honks till near tho close of the n-n o'. 3. Encourage Hm appointed v'l-i'ors ami o. aniiuorH In be very mil islriinis and spend very little lime in llio M'hool-', llnl ile-y m ly know just no'liiog ah mi llio ictu il eh ira - ler ol thu school, or do j .si no go 1 1 to to ichor, parent or pupils. Tins w ,11 lend, mo,! directly lo Iru-irate all the g md ends sought in their ap. pointoient , 0. Above all, let every parent keep as far as p is-ible from the school-bouse. They may nev er think of visiting or associating freely with its Ululates, any more than with those of tlm county 7. If parents would seo our schools in ruins, they must never co operate wilh thu teacher in his cHarts to improve their children ; must nov. er sustain his authority and discipline, but, on the contrary, do what they can to defeat his in. lentions. If Thomas complains that ho has been unjustly punished, you should take it for granted. Never go to the teacher and, in a friendly manner, talk with him about il, but find fault in tho presence Of your children, or go and censure him to your neighbors. 8. Never converse wilh your children about their studies, or any tnptc by which you will minifoel the least interest in behalf ofthe school Vou may laud as you please, the Seminary, Academy, College or some Private School ; but if you wish lo make the destruction of the Common Schools speedy and sure, never lisp a word in their praise. Know and say as little about them as possible. 0. Aro jou a Christian parent, never pray for the Common Schools, or llieir teachers. Vuu may pray much for ono hundred Academies', Seminaries, and Colleges, but never for these low institutions. For tl.o groat miss of uui children aro in ihem. In them not only is the "tw'gbent so as lo give perm incut inclination loUio future tree, " but in Ihem are cducaled, so far as educated at all, five-sUlhs of our eu tiro population. IU sure thou, Christian, and never oiler one fervent petition in their behalf. 10. Never read or inform yourself what has been done to improve our schools. Vou can'l atTird lo spend lime and money tu inform your self on Ibis bubjeel, 11. If Ihoru are funds sufficient to sustain your district school three or four month in the siiiumer, and as'long in the winter, placo your who'o reliance on these funds. Never think nf ovpending moro. For the moment you con tribute nnmcy from your own resources, you will begin to feel an interest to know how your money is expended, and this interest will rise or fall in proportion to tho increase or diniiuu. tiou of your contribution. 'J, There is ono thiiir-nioro to bo observed if you would niako tho destruction of our schools COIIllllele. It is. that all thoso nareots ami mnr. ' - dims vv ho feel that our Common Schools aro very far from being what they ought tu be, and who have intelligence, virtus and pecuniary ability to purify nnd elevate them, withdraw their children alii youth from them at once, and send them to some private school. This will greatly assist in doing tho work of utter de struction. Thus aro withdrawn romc who aro the best scholars in every sense of the expression. This lowers the standard of education in our common schco's. All children, like all men, rise easily lo a common level ; there the mass stop j strong minds only ascend higher. lint raise tho stan. dard, elevate the common level, and by a spon taneous movement, Ihc mass will rise again to reach it. 'I hence the removal of tho most for ward scholars from our common schools is no small miifnrlui e ; it is among the most efficient means to , rociiro their rum. I hen, as jou m " i lo rlnnds decline from day till , i I V'"ir "Tti'.i i it will abate, Sneak of it xwili e iiiir iiijiT. 'li la null' a d strict -ibool." "He or th 1 is on'v a ioa( her of a e minion sch"o'." ' l'l.ue children go lo the d'h'rirt M'hool." Apply lie's.; rules faithfully, and rely upon it, thu end vv ill be arrniiiphshed. These free in-i-tiliitions, whoso fouudaiioiis wero laid in wis dom, will moulder in ruins. sKCiwr survici: fund and air. wnn. SI'RU. The following is an authentic copy of Mr Webster's remarks in the Senate on Wednes day, on the resolution ofTeicd by Air Jamagiti some days since, calling on the President fur in formation relative to the 'Secret Service Fund.' The resolution having been read Air Webster rose and said : I have a few, and but a few, remarks to make on the President's .Message matiswcrtothc resolution ofihc Hnu-e nl Representatives calling for an account of ihe disbursements during tho period in which I had the honor lo be the Secretary of State, nut of (he fund for the contingent expenses of fureign inlercuurse. In the first place, sir, I am happy to say that I entirely approve the course of proceeding which Ihe President has adopted. In my judgment, he could not have acted otherwise than he has done, without the violation of law and of his own duly. Sir. as I know that nut a dollar was dis bursed from Ihat fund without llio sanction of llio President, and as I am conscious tint every uisoursemem was imue lor a p'opi rand neces sary public purposes it might bo thought that I desire the publ.c (lion of .he papers, m order that every omty what they are, or wli, t they show.

I will add, Ih it a person who entertao s such a tiispcioo without reason, of any publ.c man, may himself tie well suspecled ol having bold a no very com. pliinentary dialogue wnh h.msolf. Kir. we nil know llnl the head of a Depart ment cannot tnic.h a doll ir of this fund without tho Presidents sanction. The whole power, and the w hole responsibility, is with the Pres ident. The Pic-ndont's Ales-age states this so lully and clearly that I need dweil upon it. I will say, in the first place, Ural no expenditure, improper in ileii, or improper in its amount, was nmle to my knowledge, judgment or belief. ,i.d I will say, in ihe ne.i p'.ice, ihat the lale President of tiiu United Slates, in .ail ihin.'s res pecting the evpeudilure of the public moneys, was remarkably caution.-, e..ict and p trticuU'r. And I here say, .Sir, Ihalalldeclarations, aver ments, statement or insinuations mule any. where, or by anybody, which niipu'e perver ian, misapplication or waste of Ihe fuiics, committed or made by mo while S.'cietary of Siale, are utterly groundless and untrue. Arid I wi.l conclude wilh one rennrk, lin bearing of vv Inch I shall leave lo the Senate and In llie country.

UOHIIEUV. The first robbery lo our knowledge which ever occurcd in the ('ounly of Addison, was per. petrated in Iho afternoon of Tuesday last.

A dividend WOOL-GROWKR'S CHEATED. It is well known by every reading man, that tho Whigs in Congress mado uso of ev ery possible effort to make tlio tariff of 1842 ns'dffocliril ns possible fur tho protection of Wonl-giowers. All wool except such as was really coarse, was subjected to tho high est ralu of duties 3 cents per lb., and 30 per cent advalorem, wliilo the 5 per cent was limited to cnatso wool only, which could not compete with tho domestic production, and costing under 7 cents per puund in lho South American market. Several provision wero tniiilo to prevent under valuations by mixing foreign substances, nnd charging up on bales nccoiding lo the finest wool which each ronlaineil, &c. And yi l it is a fact avowed by llio Lucofocos themselves, that niui! tenths of all the wool imported from Smith America p iys the lowest rato ol du ties, although il is well understood that of the five or six dilTerenl, grades "I' v ol in; rted fiiiiii thai quarter, three or four are finer grades which come in coinp'-lilion with ours, nnil should he charged vv ith 3 cenls per pound and 30 cents ndvaluiom, which would a iiimint to 75 per rent advaloreni. In consequence nf tilts abominable fraud upon the wool-growers, suffered lo be prac ticed bv the Executive, tho importation of S. American wool has increased from about 5 millions in 1S15 lo 25 millions in 184G. And look at tho manner in which ihese hypocritical friends of protection to the wool giower proposo to remedy the evil of which they so loudly complain. Ins'ead of carry ing out llio present land, which would lairly allow a duty ol to tier cunt advaloreni on at least half of tho wool imported from South America. Mr. v ulkcr s Bill proposes 2o per cent advaloreni upon importations of wool ol every description, l es, lo remedy what tliev pronounce llio " outrageous hum- buggery of tho present Whig tariff upon wool-growers, anil which lias brought irre trievable ruin upon them ; iwo cenls a pound is tho only proscription of these empty pre tenders fur protection to the firmer." But such has been the nboinin mle duplicity of Loeofocoisni in relation to proleclion, from beginning lo end. They have over declar ed themselves opposed Ion tariff for protec tion on uny branch ol dnmestic industry. They objected In llie Turiffrif 1S12 nn the ground that it aimed at protection, and in every stage of ils prog' ess lliiuiigh C ingress -1 1 1 in it I'd In reduce il nn woollen goods which is even vu.rso for llie vnnlrowcr ill in In reduce il nil wool ilsell. They nro this iiiomeul eagerly employed in C ingress ill reducing the tartll fiom nil mer.ige offer I v In -5 per cent. I nipru donee mi l hv poc iiy c hi go no farther linn these nn n have in ide them in eliciting the people mil uf pro tection In domestic Industry. Ono would ihnik ihey could not open their mouths on thu subject of prolection without being (hooked with (onfosion inviiw of llie dis graceful Ii ii ks they have played before the people on this subject. The collectors in as sessing dnlii s have regmded nothing hot the price nf llie woo! ill the place whence import ed. They h ive utterly neglected llie dis linclion In t veen coarse wool and fine, which was intended by the fiiends oflho tarilTas so conservative of tlm interests of llio wool grower. Nothing is easier limn lo execute the law according lo its intent. Let the Sec retary of llie Trisury procure simples of cnaiso and fine wool, mid send ihem lo the Custom IIouso officers, ns their guide in tho assessment of duties. This pi in was point ed out by Gov. Slade lo Air.
