FRIDAY MORNING, JUNK 12, ISt6. THE TARIFF. Late accounts from Washington arc more encouraging in reference to the Tariff. Wo alluded n few days since to a rumor thai a caucus had been called fur the purpose of drilling McKay's bill through the House. It is now understood that it proved a failure none of llic members from Pennsylvania, N. York, or N. Hampshire attending. The proposition to cut down tho duties upon im ports, in thu midst of a war which bids fair to cost fifty millions, is too preposterous to obtain the countenance of sane men even tlioso who might go for free trade as a peace measure. Il is 'intimated however, that the administration is in favor of such a modifi cation of the tariff 33 shall "direct a portion "of the profits of llic manufactures into the "treasury to meet tho extraordinary expen "ses of the government, and evert the altern ative of an excise tax upon the people." "This proposition," says the Troy Whip, "is worthy of the clique o( narrow minded parti zins, the miserable peddling politicians, who are permitted for the present to wield the power and patronage of this great nation. They liavo assumed iho responsibilities of a war in tho name of the whole people, and now by tho way of gratifying iheir spile against tho iiiantifactuiing and mechanic population, they proposu to draw the subsi dies for its prosecution out of thu pockets of these great indiislricil classes. But the project is impraciicnbhi as well ns rascally. lis sucress is, ofcoui.se, prediea tedton the supposition lint the do nestic ar ticles oftlio kinds on vthich it is proposed to reduce tho duties, would be at onco superse ded, 111 our mirkels by tho foreign sujiplj , In no other way than thru' an influx of Inreign goods sufficient to accomplish this object, could an increase of revenue ho realized at tin: reduced rates of duty. But if Mr. Polk and his cabinet think that this would bo thu immediate result they deceive themselves. Our nianiif.ictineis would not Miik al once under tho blow. Euiplovers and bands, moved by a common interest would sustain each oilier tho former cheerfully submit ting to a loss of their profits for the time be ing, llie Idller to a reduction of their wages. There would be 110 decicase of the domestic supply for some time, and consequently but lilllo increase of iho foreign importations. Our spindles and looms and trip hammers would bo kept going as briskly as ever forat least a much longer period than the Mexican war is likely lo lust. The iiianufacluters would bo beaten at last uud compelled to disband their operatives or a large portion of ilium, if tho policy wero persisted in, but lliey would struggle lung and manfully, hop ing for wiser rulers and belter times and probably iheir hopes would be fulfilled be fore tho work of ruin should be fully accom plished. But whatever might be tho conse quences of tho precious scheme for raising tho wind, relerred (0 and we are sorry to say approved by the Truo Sun, it will not be tried. Tlio larilT, in spite of lamentations in tlio South and elsewhere, will remiiin.sub stanlially, as it is. Without laying claim to thu faculty of second sight we make this pre diction with perfect confidence." Errr.cTs op the War Cali., The prompt and enthusiastic manner in which tho requi sition for volunteers has been answered from all parts of the Union, shows that whatever may be our pujilical disagreements, tbe call to arms from iho constituted authorities of the nation, instantly renders us a united peo- pie. In ibis uffair with Mexico iho whitr, without changing bis opinion of the policy which led lo lliu war, steps forth at once at the tap of the national drum, and stands side by side willi bis political opponent, ready lo charge with him up to lliu camion's mouth for the honor of iheir common country.

Wo arc not furnished with any particulars, and it docs not appear what lias become of the Mexican force which bad be fore opposed the progress of our army. Gen. Taylor has undoubtedly taken care that it is not left in position in his rear, be tween him nnd bis supplies. If this news is confirmed and there is no reason to doubt tbat it is substantially correct our army has faiily entered tho enemy's territory as an invading army. The move ment upon Uarila, which might have been considered as a necessary protection of the river communication with our forces, be comes unimportant now that the main body of the army lias crossed iho Itio Grande.

And in recapitulating his reasons for op posing Annexation, Mr. Clay again said that it would involve us "cRnTAi.Ni.v in war with Mexico probably with other foreign Pow ers." Tlio result furnishes another illustration of Mr. Clay's wisdom and foresight as a states man. Would that his warning voice had beenhecded. Escape and He-capture or Convicts at Clinton Prison.
