Too Fast ?We apprehend that our ootem poraries, writing from Washington for the dis tant prcjs. are in error in thq^ story abont a compromise, which, many of them say, hri taken place bewteen the Secretary of the Treasury and the majority of the Committee of Ways and Means on the tariff question Mr Guthrie has advocated the exemption of raw materials used in important and Strug, ling br robes of Ameaican manufactures from tax ption in our custom houses. The majority of the committee are against that prinoipie It is understood that they have somewhat relaxed their views in determining the details of the amended measure, they propose on Thursday I next to urge ou the House, though they do not contemplate abandoning the prinoiple of re furing to make discriminations fortheadven ' I tage of Amerioan manufactures, while it is II equally well known in this city that the bec ' I retary has not changed a single one of bis I original positions, founded on the principle I which he maintaina to be wise and prudsnt I under existing public exigencies. He has 1 with him, by the by, the New York ' I Journal of Comi/tera and the Eroftomi'.'i, I the two leading free trade journals in the I country as well aa a host of the best informed I advocates of the entire freedom of trade in I the United States The idea of theee parties I ia, that our leading manufacturing interests I are'rapidly coming to favor free trade, and I that to deal harshly with them at this time I will greatly protract the period at whioh iLey I will all wheel into the free trade line, an 'letentof really far more importance to '.he I intereat of unreatricted oommerce than aaght ' I else we know of. i Under these ci-cumetanees we adhere to I the opinion long sine* expressed, that nothing ' I will be done with the tariff at thU wssien; II and believe that the prop used attempt to take I it up on Thursday next, if successful, will I have no other effeot than to defeat proper ac I tion on most of the so very important business I which, in thai event must be thrust aside to I afford an opportunity simply for 11 lalkiug I tariff " in the Hall for a week or S). J I he Gibson Cass?Captain Gibson desires I us to say that he has address* 1 a communi ' I cation to the ohairma* e* tfc* semmittee on II foreign affaira, of date W** Jrvrwo-jr, in whioh ?I he pronounces the le'V"-? to him us >1 having be n addre*s?4 te fttrernur of ) I Dutch East Iuaiep, a trie* &ui garbled state ' I m?nt of a memorial addressed to that Gover >1 nor. Captain Gibson assert* (hat the insinu 11 ation of his having improperly detained a doc ? I ument belonglug to the State Department is . I false and groundless He charge* certain en -1 emies with having maliciously given publicity I to the offensive document, many days before I toe Seoretary of State reported its absence to I the President. Capt. Gibson charges the 4;e? i I retary ef State with bad fatrh and hostility ? (towards him, during the prosecution of this -1 ease, since its commencement." II We give the Captain the benefit of the pub >, I licati n of this statement of bis concerning -1 whai he has represented to the House Com ? I mittee on Foreign Affairs, and have to say 0 I that his mere denial of the authenticity ot the Hleiter in question will haruly weigh much > I against the proof of its character, which, as '1 ail the world understand, the Dutch Govern 8 I ment have in its possession. As for his charges s I against Secretary Marcy, they are simply ri ' I diculou.", with the documentary history of the 01 efforts of the State Department to obtain pay II ment of hisolaim before tbe ecuntry. The 11 truth is, Captaiq Gibson, though employing his Government aa his counsel, undertook to ~ I manage his own case, and simply illustrated i I the old adage concerning him who would be 11 his own lawyer. He has himself to thank ? I only for the present really desperate condition 51 of his cause I I he Emigrant Passenger Ship Question. I There is at this time in Washington a Urge B I delegation from New York eity interested in ' I the busineM of bringing cargoes of emigrants 11 to this oountiy. Their presumed object is to 1 1 prevent the passage of tb" stringent measure 9 I now bo for* Congre?s designed to oompel them I to look sufficiently well to the health of steerage ?' I passengers in their ships The nuisance which ?' I the legislation in question is designed to cure, e I is s-n intolerable one, and it behooves Congress r I to reotive with due caution, the representations '?I of parties who are directly interested in its I perpetuation. f P S ?Just before going to press, wa were 3 much gratified to learn that the delegation to ? wnich we refer above, have frankly and free ' ly accepted as proper to be embraoed in a new law on the subjeet, the suggestions of the Treasury Department founded on the Govern ment's aiperienoe in thie connection for many ' years past A heavy Judgment ?We understand that the Treasury Department have advices that the United States have obtained a judgment 1 in the State oourt of Texas against Joseph Bates, late U. S Marshal of Texas, for about $20,000, the amount of the balance due from that individual to the United States. A draft for $5,000 oo aooount of this judgment has already been received here, and it is thought that the wkolo of the balance la secured to the Government List of Patent* issued from the United States Patent Offlco for the week ending Jan uary 30, 1856 ?each bearing that date :.

The steamahip Amerioa arrived at Halifax yesterday, with European newa to the 20;b instant. The war newa U unimportant, ob taining nothing deoiaiTe. Sebaetopol still hold* ont, the grand aaeault not yet hating taken plaoe. Negotiationa for penoe are said to be going on between the belligerent powers, the purport of whioh is kept secret. The army of Bnrarin has almost completed its war oomplement. Letters aay that the Swedish army will be immediately placed en the wnr footing, and increased to 65.000 men. Rcusia is preparing for the spring oampaign, and the Ba tie army is organising. Reinforcements were constantly reaching the allies. Lord Raglan had sent to Miiia for the tenth hussars. The Turk sh army in the Crimoa is to be increased to 90,000 men during the present month. Russian feinforeementa were adraneingby forced marches. The weather was frosty and some snow had retarded the besiegers The Piedmontes troops were to embark on the 28th of February. There is nothing further about the invasion of the Dobrudsoha, except that the Russians, alter the affair at Tultsoha, ic-croased the

Danube A Vienna deepateh says that Count libol had demanded an explanation of this af* fair from Gortechakoff The Turkish forco in the Dobrudsoha is estimated at 30,000 msn, mostly recruits. SPAIN. The new constitution had been submitted in the Chambers. The main features are tiiat sovereignty emanates from the nation; the religion of the nation to be Roman Catholio, but toleration te be allowed ; the press to be free; confiscation of property and the death penalty for political offences to be abolished; a national guard to be established ; the legis lature to consist of two chambers; Senators to be eleoted for life, with property qualitioa tions; one representative in every titty thou sand citisens to be elected; the eourts to meet annually, and to regulate the strength of the army; also to give assent to royal marriages, and appoint aregenoy when ocoasion requirea. COMMERCIAL. The commercial advices look favorable. Cotton has slightly advanced, and breadsiuffs, overcoming the previous destine had dosed with an advance of fid on flour, 2d. on wheat, andftd onoorn. THE L\TESr HEWS BY THE AMERICA [BY TKLEORArH ] ihe following are the latest item* collected from all sources : The English Consul has submitted to Prince Stirbey a note oalling upon him to repudiate the Russian proleotorate by a public act The French Consul will send the Hospodars asim lar note. The "Opinion" ot Turin, of the 15th inst., states that the deps^ture of the Piedmon'.eee troops for the Crimea will take place on the 28th of February. Aooording to that journal, the contingent is to oonsist of 20.000 men, 15,000 of whom will embark on that day, and the additional 6.000 are from the reserve Private letters from Vienna say that Pnnoe Gortschakoff h?s instruction to accept every thing, and to acoede to all the allies may de mand, except the reduction of the Russian fleet and the occupation of the Russian terri tory. The "Debate" has an artiole in explanation being that Piemont has assented to the treaty of the 10th of April, and not the treaty of D ecember. The elosing price for French funds were for three per cents, 68a70; four-and-a halt per oents, 95, and Bank shares 29, 80. TI1E DANUBE. We are without anything respecting the in vasion of Dorbrudscha excepting the follow ing from the Wanderer of Vienna: The Rus sians crossed the Danube at Tultccha, and favored by the obscurity of the night, they reeohed the right bank in their boats, and sur prised one of the weakeet garrisons, and after making great oarnage, re-crossed the river laden with booty, and taking with them a number of prisoners. There was considerable lo s on the part of the Russians as the Turka fought with desperate courage. Among the slain ia a Pacha, but hia pame is not men tioned. The inhabitanta of Tultscha fled into the oountry with their wivea andobildren and did not return again until long after the de parture of the Russians The Hamburg Wachichton oontains a tele graphic despateh from Vienna dated the 14th, wherein it is said that Count Buel has ad dressed a note to Prince Gotsohakoff, demand ing an explanation relative to the reorossing of the Danube by the Prussian foroes, and their oooupation of Dobrudscha, and therce, as a matter of oourse, their menacing Varna and its communications. The Turkish force now in Dobrudsoha is es timated at more than 30.000 men, mostly raw reoruits however, the flowar of Omar's army having gone to the Crimea, against which, it it said, Omar strongly protested, and still re mains much dissatisfied. It is suspeoted that the Austrian govern ment was party to the eruption at Dobrud scha, wishing to demonstrate thereby the ne oeMity for an armistice. THE BLACK SEA Admiral Bruat telegraphs that snow had fallen heavily on the 5th of January, but the weaAoer since then was clear, with a north easterly wind. The fleets sustaited ?e dam eg? GREAT BRITAIN. Rlobard Cobden addressed his eenstitueats at Leeds, stigmatising the attack on Scba?to> pol, as a colossal mistake, and the principal question now should be how to get out of it. Other speaker* addressed the meeting Mr. Buchanan transacted business on the 16th instant at the foreign office. Malicious rumors are in circulation that the Government have offered General Sir DeLacy Evans aa appointment in India, so as to get rid ot his oontemplatod disclosures in Parlia ment The 82d regiment embarked from Liverpool in the steamer Bahama for the Crimea, elevea hundred strong. Four hundred of the London dock In'jorort have been sent to the Crimea to onload shipe. The fate of the ship Bernioe, (British) miss lag since 1852, from Shanghai, is discovered? the Europeans on board having been mur dered by the Lascar crew. fy The Germ in emigrants alone bring into the Statot 11,000,000, annually. ?/.'I /i ?/ t.'*i S^BMITM ?WiAN rNFTlWlHHl LEC ^TUKBS.
