Give us a call. SriBIT OF TBI MOBSIJffO PRESS. The Intelligencer, referring to th9 public feeling on the Cuba question, says : "The Culminations of the Washington Union having been divested of their supposed cfljiil inspiration, the public mind is settling do * n ir.to a state of compara'ive tranquility; indeed the Union itself, since it feels that it ha* last the power to frighten people, hcs be come less militant. We trast it trill remain ?0 until theoceurrencc of seme outrage wort by to rekindle its ire." * ? * ? In noticing a recent article in the New York Evening Post, upon the election of Sam Houston to the Presidency, the Intelligence) also seyg: 44 In a brief article on the merits of an emi nent citizen named for the Presidency, acc the principles laid down by him as his politics chart, the New York Evening Post commend: a particular feature of it, which embodies h< on y wise, safe, and practical rule on the sub ject of the disturbing element of our Union It is as follows: 'His chief recommendatior is his oemmon-sense policy on the Blaverj ques ion?a policy which is truly national, anc the only one on which the people of this coun try. North and South, can permanently unite? the policy of toleration.' It is the utter dis repute and non observance among cs of thi golden principle which poisons the very esaencc ?t the republican system, and converts it fron the greatest good almost into a f ositive evil and it is not less remarkable than it is unfor tunata that in a country which, from its sy? tem of government, differences of opinion 01 public questions mu3t always exist, the prin ciple of to'eration should be held in le s re spect than in any other." The Union's leader is against pape money," of which it sayg : ?' Paper money is the greatest of all liar because it is perpetually promising what i cannot perform. It promises to pay a dolla in ?pecia for every paper one. while at thi famu moment it appea-s from the official re tarn* of the banks tiiey have not specie in thei vaults to re teem one-terth tweiftfc, cr fifteeafl part of their paper issues?nay, in many c?s? tLcir specie I* les? than ;he procor;ion of Fal staff f bread to h:s sr.ck in D ;co Quickley' bills IIer.ee, whe* any sudden or ucexpec^ei dexand for specie comes they closa their door witnout co eu.o y ; the president and cashier to avoid all demonstrations of public gravj tuie, remain invisible for a few days till th storm blows over ; but. beirg exonerated free ail personal responsibility bj an ect of incor p ia:i?n re'urti ia good time, again result their station in society, and are ready for new ? speculation." Grspa Culture. The following is the :ran;lation of part of letter recently received by a gentleman in tbi city fiom Portugal, which goes to confirm ic formation received from other parts of Europe in regard to grape vines, and appears to en dorse the opinion that the disea?e will cei tainly extend throughout Southern Europ* Therefore, now is the time for our people t turn their attention to the culture of the grap< Cop.po S.\5to, Portugal. March 10.1855. Since my lu&t letter, i have to no e a iuuc greater scarcity of wines. Last year's vintag was too inferior to keep, and i3 being general ly distilled in*o brandy, tho quality of v?hic! you can reaiily imag'ce. Good brandy ha risen considerably, and the older vintages c wiae will comuand almost any prico. As t< the fu ure. I cannot say m;:ch es yet. Now i the season Icr the vines to bud, but up to th pre<ent time they show no appearance of doia so. and in some places they are dried up lik sticks Most persons are disposed to teliev that the blight mu=t take it> course here as i Madeira and elsewhere. In that case, our ol vines will have to be rooted up and new om placed, which wiil Eot produce grapes for s leas:, four years This will make you easil perceive how wines must range hencefor*an IIr.

WABMIHTOM NEWS AUD GOSSIP. Beala C&ie before th9 Government Ac? Cflantiag Cfficen ?The fracaj occurring on Friday afternoon last at Willard's, again makes the ewe referred to above cf general ifcterc?!. So wa proceed to say of it, that the Indian bureau, (its head,) refused to pass the acAmnts of Mr. Beale, ai Superintendent of Indian Affairs in California, (not Indian Agent there, as we styled him a day or two since,) on the ground of alleged too high prices paid for various articles and eervicos, and the absence of what the Commissioner regarded as the re quisite vouchers. The aggregare of items die allowed (for transportation, wheat and cattle purchased, Ac ) was $230,838 40. The Com must oner's views of hia account*, and the fact chat Mr. Be ale was absent from his post on a visit to the Atlantic side, without previously obtaining that effioer'a permission to that end, together, we take it for granted, caused Mr. B.'s removal. The visit it will be recollected was accounted for by a sudden summons to attend his family, one or more members ol which were ill at the time Mr. J. Ross Brown, who went to California j on business for the Treasury Department, (ant the Hon Thos. J. Ilenly, Postmaster at Sar Francisco.) examined the acocucts of Mr Beale, under instructions from the Indiac bureau, and mado a long report, wherein the conduct of that gentleman, as a public officer, was exonerated from any and all blame what ever. Subsequently, the Commissioner of In dian Affairs has adhered to his original views of the accounts, while the Second Auditoi and Second Comptroller of the Treasury, who revised the action of his two subordinate! mentioned above, passed all the items claimed by Mr. B., except an inconsiderable one foi salary. The views held by the head of the Indian bureau upon the mattor, caused tht treasury officers, we presume, to scrutinize Mr. B.'a account wi'h all possible care. Thej are able, experienced and faithful publie effi. cers; and we have, therefore, every right tc say that Mr. Bealo stands completely exoner ated from any imputation whatever growing out of hia connection with the Government'* Indian affairs in California. We do not desire to be understood as, oc the other hand, casting any imputation or the motives of the Commissioner of Iadiat Affairs in taking and adhering to his positior assumed with reference to these acccuuts \V< be'ieve him to be a conscientious and faithfu officer, desirous in all things to discharg< properly the trust confided to him, though w< | judge his positions to have bean incorrect, froc the fact that the appellate officers overrule* them. The Af ionization of Cuba?The Gflicia Cory of the Speech ?We have obtained a cop1 of the speech of M. Luturiaga, the Sp-.nial Minister for Foreign Affairs, to which wi allud:d on Thursday and Saturday last That is, cf tko speech as formally handod t< the American Charge in Madrid, in answer t< his request for it, to be forwarded to this Gov eri:meot. The mail which brought the copj forwarded to the authorities here, brough ethor similar copies (in the Madrid Gaxette to different European Legations in Wash ington, with explanations of the circum stanccs of the interpclla'ion. We arc satis ' J fiei that the o^py whioh we herewith present is, word for word, identical wiih that sen heme by Mr. Perry, and also that the trans I la'.ion, whi.'h a friend has made for us, id ii , J all respecu accurate : > Gkstlkuks: Her Mfj*%:y a Governmen I has received official information of the dis > I co\ery cf a conspiracy in the Island of Cub; j J which, if it had brokan out, might have bee i seriona, but which was fortunately discoveroi 1 in t<me; and the Government has now th s j satisfaction to communicate to this House an to the country, the certainty, the great confi denca which animates it, that the conspirac will be repressed, that the public trasquilit will be completely secured ThrGoveinmen entertains this entire confidence, because, bo tides the loyalty, the decision and the intelli k I gence of the authorities which represent it ii ' j taat country, it relies upon an army suffi M ciently numerous, very fairbfu', very devotee . I and determined to maiatain the integrity c PI the territory. It further relies npon the loyal fee/inps c tue people at. large, aud upon the determine tioa of a great part of thom to sacrifije evei their live? to preserve that territorial in c -riy Her Majesty's Government, therefore, deem it proper to appeal to >be patriotism 0f thi House. You thould never forget that in al the questions relative to the I^laLd of Cuba there is always a eecrot spring?a spriug. f?eo tlemen, ot which we are all unaware?c whifeh vs may ultimately bscome the uncon rcicus instilments. and which requires fron us much circumspeoties rnd reserve wheneve matters relating to that Island are under con feideratlon. Hn idea of annexation to a ncigfc baring State rhich baa been planted in tb< minds of some turbulent individuals, is a present, gentlemen, an occasion for some anx iety. But, gentlemen, this tendency would not be dangerous if it were not a-sociatec with another idoa The idea of annexation is always accompanied by the one that, bj this means, the certainty of preserving si aver j in the Island of Cuba is to be acquired. Tbij must not le lost sight of, nor the other facl ?but landed and planting property, which ooiitiru'.es the only the great wealth of that I land, e'ep nds upon slavery f?' preservation, and thai, consequently, when this institution sees itself in danger property becomes alarmed, and all its owners naturally fool laclined tc go where they see the institution sari. Gentlemen, when slavery is under discus sion, sentiments of philanthropy and other considerations inseparable from this idea axe naturally excited But it is neco sary to'bear in mind one thing, which is, that the Island of Cuba oan cease to be a component part of bpanish territory by one only of two means either by emancipation, which would result io the total extermination ot the white ra~e?that is to sa^. of all those Spaniards and natives of the Isiand who are of European extraction or by annexation, and by thi* mean* those gentlemen who bjo?i hate slavery, would not attain their object cf bavin: it abolished. Ler Majas'y s Government, then gentlemen is resoired to maintain the treaties whioh pro^ hibit the sU?e trade, t> execute them faith fully and sincerely, and can give assurances that they are and will continue to be executed honestly and strictlv. But at the same time, gentlemen, Her M jesty'a Government is thoroughly convinced that slavery is a neces sity and an i.^dispersable condition for the preservation of landed property in the Inland of Cuba, and has sought to anticipate the sentiments of this HoiLie, by giving to the natives o! and proprietor in that Island, as sura^oea 'bat it etita^ into no one s mind to to touch that u^titution. 1 beiieve. gentlema?* that this trill have sat* Ufied the just anxiety of tnC member, wfciob, I doubt not, is share! in by all otht!" ccntle men who are seated on these benches. "l cOtt c.ude by repeating that thoy may be sure that t&e Uoveroment l.aa al it* oommand all the material *ta moral strength ccoeisary to pro "iJ' ,,laaJ ; "Ed that through abun Jent thit)i*r ,V ^'P04?* tending reinforcements With In ,?e fim part ct wbioh wi" ^Tth bi othJ. n/x:, kBd b? followed cZrtlhVth*t !l a mU" aUo aid' that if il ce.ta u ?hat the daigcr which mi^ht result from the conspiracy ?dT#rt#li to W0Qij bo a gravated by the eoinoidenco of a piratical ox peduion ? hich waa als . in prepatation everv. tbicg leads to the belief tbat" the latter hai been fxuatratei; but even if .t should be o.her wise, the authority cf the island of Cuba ha<j combined all the means nxessary to annihi late it if it should succeed in landing there Thus, then, I beli?re that I hare sail enough on behalf of Her Majwty's Government to tranquilly the minds of gentlemen of thU House. | The Bevenui Carter McCieliand* Winter i ?raiid.~The Secretary of the Treasury has received from Capt. Douglass Ottinger, the commander of tne revenue cutter Robert McClelland, giving an interesting detailed ac oount of the winter cruise of that vessel as a relief ship in the Gmlf, off the eoast of Alabama, and in Mobile Bay. The McClelland in the discharge of this doty sailed 2,260 miles on the Gulf, and 1,000 in Mobile Bay, speaking and boarding ninety-six vessels. The schooner J. P. Wetherill, crippled in ?pars and sails, was worked into harbor by assistance from on board the McClelland. Toe officers of the McClelland in the course of this cruising, extinguished a fire on board the British Bark, Lord Maidstcne, during a strong " norther," thus saving the latter ves sel from otherwise certain destruction. Capt. Ottenger took on board four of the crew of a British ship, in double irons, for mutiny, lie also quelled a mutiny on board the American ?hip Monterey, accompanying her to Bea. As sistance was rendered in the night to the British ship David Brown, aground in 4 very dangerous situation on tbe east bank at the entrance of Mobile Bay.

THE CONFERENCE. The V ienna Conferenoe having adjourned till the 9th,there is no news of importance from that point. The consideration of the Third Point was to be the first subject before the Conference on reassembling. Public opinion is almost equally divided as to the final result. Ali Pasha arrived at Vienna on Friday and would take pi>rt in the future discu-sions of the Conference. The week's news may be briefly summed up thus-Political affairs are just where they were at the period of the closing of previous accounts, except that the feeling becomes stronger that nothing is left but to fight cut the diffioulty. The adjournment of the Con ference till the 9th was to await the Russian ultimatum and the arrival of the French and Turkish ministers of foreign affairs at Vienna A dispatch from Berlin dated Friday, April 6th, states that the Russian party there is predominant, and tbat Prussia will likely throw t^raelf into the arms of the Csar in the case of an unfavorable result of the Confer enoe.

FROM THE CRIMEA. There has been a succession of sanguinary conflicts botween the French and Russians before Sebastopol for the possession of Rifle ambuscade pits with varying success and much loss of life. The latest battle which took place on the night of the 25th nit., put 3,000 men horg dn cumbjt. There are no de tails. Tne R^siiana and tho allies in the 'Crimea are strengthening their positions preparatory to 'be opening of the Spring campaign. A council of war was held by the allies on the 12th ult., at which Omar Pacha de-ired the assistance of tbe allies, which could not be granted. Tde Turks are enly expeoted to bold Eupatoria, acting only on the defensive. On the 8th ult., large reinforcement of Russian troops entered Sebastopol. Oen Canrobert states that iu the affairs of i the 22d and 23d ef March the Russians lost 2,000 man and the allies 600. The Conference at Vienna met on tbe 2d inst , and then adjournod to the 9th, when the Czar's ultimatum was expected to be re ceived. TI1E BALTIC EXPEDITION.
