Thus? t Another Chinese city has fallen into the hands of 1 the British. Amoy, at the north, was captured af- ( ter a terrible battle ot four hours. The Celestials fought like so many foreign devils, but civilization j finally prevailed over semi-civilization. We give i the particulars below.

According to the last accounts from Canton, the Celestials continued repairing the fortifications near the river. Canton remained undisturbed, but business was in a very unsa'isfactory state. All trade wee confined to neutrals, mostly to Americans. Nothing had been heard from the Emperor since the capture of Amoy. It is impossible to tell there- i lore, what ellect it produced on his Imperial mind. j Mr. Coolidge, of Boston, still remained at Canion. He had been Recused, by rumor, of furnishing arms, Src , to the Chinese, but it was positively denied in the Hong Kong Gaxette. It was said that the main body of the expedition would move further northward, and attack Ningyo and Chilean. There is no demand for1 cotton and woollen manufactures, cotton or cotton yarn, although prices are lower than they have been for a long time. The 1 prospect of an improvement depends altogether up- ] on the chance of ihe difli cuhiea between the British i and the Chinese being arranged.

[E xtract of a letter from our C orreapon !ent ] Cantos, Oct. 1, lsjl. A circular was received at Macao, on the lSih of September, from Sir Henry Pottinguer, dated at Amoy, 12th September, confirming the account of the capture of that place by the British, in four houra, with very little loss, and with little fighting. It was intended to leave a few ships und some troops to garrison Amoy, and Sir Henry has started to the north to attack Ning poo and Chusan, which places will be easily taken. Owing to the late pernnl of the season, it is not suppofed that any thing important will be done this winter, and that Sir Henry will, ere long, return to Ainoy. There is, however, no prospect of any settlement of these difficulties. The Emperor is as much averse to a settlement as ever he was. Trade is in a stale of great depression, particularly as regtrds imports. The market is entirely clear of last year's teas, and therefore the prices named ? are merely nominal. The new Congoes have just began to come in, but no settled prices have yet Iw.an nljttrutn th#m Cottttnodcrc Nyns has threatened to Wow up all the fortifications, vVc. of Canton, on account of the Chinese sinking sevrrul vessels with stores, in the channel of the river.

Now the said general and his colleagues have reported that tha valiant soldiersburnt the (English) ships, opened their fire night and day from their great guns, and of all those o'- the robbeis who landed, there were no places from whence they were not either driven back or killed.

A most severe and stiict inquiry must be made into thiaafTuir. I order Lew Yunho to direct Chintih to make a searching inquiry into the evidence, and punish with the utmost severity of the law.

Ha van a, Jan. 21.1842In the long interval -since the suspension of my correspondence, from the cause already explained to you, events have occurred which would have filled volumes, in extent of paper at least, if not with interesting matter to your readers- First in importance is the edict for the suppressaion of certain monasteries, the details of which you will have gathered from the papers sent you by the Cristoval Colon. i is ramer a consolidation 01into a establishments throughout the Island, reducing at the same time the rank of the different resident functionaries in conformity therewith. So much for the present; for it is very evident that a still further consolidation must soon be effected for even four establishments, must be quite sufficient for the proper, and indeed, luxurious accommodation of something less than 300 brethren, including all ranks and degress, who have hitherto occupied the nineteen! But it is evidently also the policy of the government, determined however they may be, to effect thus long contemplated object, to use measures more or less conciliatory or soothing towards a class of people whose power and influence have been so recently of such paramount weight and importance that even now there are still left sufficient of devotees, and a still greater number of adherents to the old system, to create a strong party in their favor. But the deed is done, and will scarcely be revoked. It is not a question, at leastjat present, of religion. It is simply the conversion of a vast accumulation of property to the public uses?or rather the attempt to do so, for it is yet doubtful whether any one will be found bold enough to risk the means of making a purchase which may savour of "sacrilege," whiUt its tenure would not be too secure in the poseihle event of the future dominnance ofthe high church party in Spain! Every one who has visited the Havana must recollectthe great monastery of San Francisco, rising almost from the water at the termination of the long wharf, which runs laterally with the bay?its mere vastnees and time-worn appearance creating admiration and respect in despite its uncouth and misshapen exterior construction.?This has been evacua tea, ana tne miners nave ianen up their abode with the brothers of the same order at Guanabacoa. Whether it will [canlj be sold, and wh'ther its too churches, the larger one of surpassing grandeur in its style of architecture, will be demolished, remains to be seen Already the wall which separated it from ihe bay has been removed, and a wharf constructed in its place. The government profess to be willing to sell the whole property, or to convert it into a depot for bonded goods ; but this latter would in volve afresh expenditure of money, a thing not likely to be authorised, unless absolutely indispensable And what is to be done with the nans 1 The same I presume- Their possessions are still greater in proportion to their number, than those of the monks?the single nunnery of Santa Clara, occu pying four squares of ground, in a very valuable part of the city, would comfortably accommodate the whole number of nuns mentioned in Dr. Abbott's work, ao far backbs 1826 or '9. As my object is to communicate the simple facts as thev occur, all reasoning upon the moral or political effect of these measures may be left to the inind of the readers. Yet it is a subject fraught with great interest to those who have watched the progreas of the vast reform of the last century in that influence which the church formerly possessed in all the ramifications of Spanish socie ty and customs, from the meanest cottage to tne very throne itself?and now, what is it 1 In private society it is scarcely recognized beyond the pastoral care which the priests of all denominations, and in all countries, exercise over their "flocks;" and in public, or rather poiitsal affairs,they have long censed to have the slightest influence?true there are still grand ceremonies and processions, as of old, on some very great "frnst" days, [festes] in which the high officers of the government mingle with those of the church, that its connection with the State.probably, may still be apparent to the multitude ; hut these ceremonies and displays are <>t diminished splendor, and are viewed by the populace with a jeeling scarcely amounting to respect, and certainly with no approach to the reverence with which these gaudy spectacles were wont to be greeted hh iney passed the crowded streets and the equally crowded windows and balconies of this populous city. 1 well remember, so far back a-? 1HS4, I hap;iened to be riding directly following Governor Tacon's carriages, through the calle O'Reilly, and as we neared the calle Cuba, which crosses it, one of these processions was proceeding with itH slow and solemn step along the latter, and 1 presumed that the Governor's carriage would, of course, halt until it had paeeed. Xot at all?his guards very civilly desired them to open, and we passed on, for I was certainly not slow to avail my sell of the opening, in preference to wasting half ati hour ot the best part of the evening. NowGovernor Tacon had no want of resprct for the clergy?he simply d tiered from theni in the right to obstruct his path, and thus consume his invaluable time by their ceremonies.

Did you ever know of a child, of three yeara of age, who wouldn't cry for nothing 1 I >id you ever hear of a broken gambler that wouldn't return to the " table," with the five dollar note he had just begged to keep him from starvingl Did you ever know of a youth, of eighteen, that wouldn't rather buy hie own experience, than take his brother John's (who was full twenty-one) for nothing ? Now when you meet with either of these, expedt me to take the yellow fever. Pshaw, will you northerners never understand the true na lure of the disease, that it haa no terrors whatsoever lor ine native or the resident, wno naa passea si* years without taking it. It is a popular error to suppose, that a stranger must have the. disease to render him secure. No such thing?a residence for a certain lime, will acclimate the subject just as well That straDgers.ia their first season during the warm weather, and so on, lessening the danger to six or seven years, are liable to the disease, no one will deny; but even this danger has been grea'Jy magnified, and the chances of death ensuing most absurdly exaggerated ; and as to natives and long residents?pshaw, again.

The Saturnalia, At length the inilleoium is at hand?the beneficent Bankrupt Law is now in full operation, and the first batch ot applicants made their appearance before the District Court on Wednesday, and filed their several applications for a hearing on the 1st of March. We annex the first day's list from the bankrupt oflicial gazette of Wall street. The Bankrupt Law will produce some Strang* disclosures?some strange fl'-cts?and some good pickings for the lawyers and newspaper proprietors. Calculating the number of bankrupts at 5,000 for this district, the advertising alone will, according to the " Rule 70," amount to $172,500?one-third of which goes to the " Courier and Enquirer," being $57,500 ?being something over the old sum of $52,000- The editor of the same journal who receives this sum is ~ ,1...

[ConvspoLdeoccof lh?H?r?H ] Washm?t?ii, Feb. 2, lftt2. Senate Piw??Ua|i?Exchequer Board? L Lectures?F. W. Thowm " The" Party. In the Senate, this morning, Mr. White, of Indiana, presented a memorial from the corporation of Michigan city, Indiana, asking for an appropriation to continue the improvements in the hui'. ef that plaoe. Mr. White supported the views of ihe memorialists, in which he contended for iue wisdom of liberal appropriations for continuing the harbor system heretofore prosecuted by the General Government. Mr. Clav spoke briefly, but earnestly, on the same side of the question. He insisted upon the constitutional right of the Government to make harbors, but, in the present exhausted state of the treasury, he was in favor of limited appropriations. He was prepared, he said, to go into a system of taxation which was necessary to furnish a revenue adequate to the administration of the government on principles of economy, and when the revenue was obtained he would go for liberal appropriations for all the purposes of common and national defence. The present let alone policy of the government, he said, would carry us back to the incapacity of the old confederation. Mr- PaasTon denied that the Federal Government had any constitutional power to construct harbors where nature had not already provided ?u i i .L.,< :i ?? micixi, *iiu nigucu iiit&i 11 iuc puwn woo cachi?cu n would moat necessarily be carried to a dangerous extent. This debate was continued between Messrs. White, Presto*, and Clav, till half past two o'clock, when the memorial was referred to the Committee of Commerce. The Senate then took up the special orders of the day, being the joint resolutions of Mr. Clay to amend the Constitution. 1st. To render Senators and Representatives ineligible to any civil appointment under the authority of the United States during the term or fractional term for which they are elected. 2i. Restricting the Veto Power of the Presi dent. 3d. To vest the appointment of the Secretary of the Treasury, and the Treasurer of the United States in the two Houses of Congress exclusively. Mr. Bocharan took the fl?or, and spoke for nearly two houre in reply to the aiguments of Mr. Clay, for restricting the veto power, when the Senate went into executive session. The speech of Mr. Buchanan was very able, much more so than that of Mr. C ay. This proposition to amend the Constitution is looked upon as an absurd one in itself, but at this juncture the movement is injudicious and unwise beyond alt previous exhibitions of legislative folly. 1'. h supposed th at Mr. Clay will not press his proposition to a vote in the Senate, but, if he should, there will hardly be a dozen Senators in its favor. Ths Report of the currency committee of th e house can hardly be expected before next week ? This work is one of great difficulty and delicacy, and'if any practical result is to grow out of it, there must be great caution and deliberation in every movement. No good of any sort can arise frt m precipitation ir? the premises. Indeed, it may well be doubted, whether further delay would not be beneficial to the object desired, and sought by all honest men?the settlement of the currency question. In the present position of parties in Congress, no wise or salutary financial measure can be adopted, unless there shall be adecided and general manitestaof the public wish to that effect. The popular sentiment in the northern, middle and southern Stales is, no doubt, favorable to the establishment of some such plan as that recommended by the Executive. This has been generally indicated at ine norm, ana to some extent at the south, but there must be a more positive demonstration ot public opinion, or the expectations of the people will be thwarted by the factious designs of men in Congress If the whigs, with the power in their hands, permit this question to remain open, and thus give the democrats the opportunity to go to the people on this ieeue, at the nextrlection, they will deserve to be in a minority (or the remainder of the present centuryThere have been no recent developments of the intentions of the whig party,in reference to the administration, and every thing remains in the same state of confusion and chaos that has prevailed here for months past. The President is self poised and undisturbed. He discharges his duties faithfully, and conscientiously, and for the vagaries of Congress, the people will know who to hold responsible. There are several active and efficient societies in this ci'y, organized with a view to the promotion of literature, science and the useful and ornamental arts, and they embrace among their members some of the finest minds in the country. Lectures are delivered almost every week, some of which are equal to any of the great efforts in your city, by the most distinguished men in the nation. Mr- Woodbury made a capital discourse a short time since on the subject of education. This gentlemen is eminently practical in all his views, and his lecture was replete with valuable suggestions Mr. F. W. Thomas delivered ao admirable ^lecture on Oratory last week. Mr. T. is the author of that excellent novel, Clinton] llrsdshaw. and many of the best articles in some of our popular periodicals, As a writer, he has no superior in this country. Ilis style is flowing and easy, and while it is perspicuous and concisa To habit and close observation he unites a keen sense of the ludicrous, mnch dramatic power, a miud well stored by diligent and judicious reading, and a knowledge of the world, most rare for oue of his opportunities. Mr. Thomas has a poem, and a series of sketches of incidents of individuil character, and habits and rnanuers in tinweft, which it is understood he intends to briu out at the earliest moment that shall be warranted by the state of business in the country. He has in progress a work to embrace biographical portraits of most of our distinguished living politicians. There is hardly a man in the country as competent to sucl^an undertaking, and it cannot be doubted by those who know the man, that all his production* will be of a character to increase his stock of well earned fame, and do credit to the literature of the nation. There wsa a great social party given by the congressional mess boarding at Kennedy's, in the Avenue, last night It was Ihr party of the season, so far. The mess consists, in part, of Messrs Sevier and Fulton, the Arkansas Senators, Judge Cross of Arkansas, Gen. l>awson of Louisiana, and Col William C. Bu'ler. A full description hereafter, j One of the mo*t amusing incidents of the evening, was to see Mr. Buchanan, the grave Senator from Pennsylvania, and Mr. Crittenden, late A'torney General, figuring in the same quadiilie. To oue who had seen these gentlemen in an animated hut liberal argumentative contest on the flj;r if the Senate, this saltatory contest was exceedingly amusing.

The I louse of Repreaentaliver devoted the whol of this day to the cave of Mr. fcx-Prr?idenl Adams, which has already occupied nine d*yn of ih- ?ession, nod ia likely to occupy several more before it is fully disponed of. Some disposition whs ninnifr?ted tu lay, the whole rubjrct on the table, tha' the other biMtnesa of the House might be proceeded with ?but after a calf of the Home, the proposition was negatived by a majority of 112 to 80 A majority of It#7 to 89 also negatived Mr. Gilmer's motion to lay Mr Adams'resolutions on the labia, and they then came tip in their order.

The adoption of this resolution was opposed by Mr. Holmes, Mr. Pickens, and Mr. W Smith. It was opposed because the information for whicn it called was not pertinent ami essential to the defence of the gentleman from Massachusetts, while it would necessarily renew an excilemcut which nil must deplore. But it was supported by Mr. Wansen and Mr Adams as both pertinent and ntrrwa ry, to which the latter gentleman expressed his willingness to make oath. The debate was cnt short by the call of the previous question on the motion of Mr. Morgan, and the resolution was adopted by a majority of 97 to 96 The second resolution was adopted by a majority of 96 to 84, in the following order H?oU?d, That the Secretary of the N??f he requested Id communicate to ihii Houta copies of ifce prnfedinp of UM Naval Court Martial, recently held for Um trial orCapUia William Comptou Holloa, ei d i f ihe precedm* Court of IhSuirjr upon whote rautrt Ike ?ai<J Natal Court dirtiil wii er? cred.

Before, howerer, that disposition was made of them, Mr. Wise made an ineffectual attempt to append an amendment to them, te extend the call te any information that might be in possession of the Executive or any ef the departments, touching the charges said 10 have been preferred by Mr. Adams to Mr. Jefierson again*! the Federalists of New England, of a design to di solve the Union. The Speaker decided that (his amendment was not pertinent, and therefore not in order; but Mr. Adams intimated that he would raise no objection to it, if offered at a subsequent stage of the proceediags in a separate form. Having attained so much 01 his object, Mr. Adams expr.- sed hie obligations for the compliance of the Hou*e, and declared that during a public life of 60 or 70years he] had given ample strong, clear, and unequivocal proofs of attachment to th&unionof the states, and that he had presented the petition whicn had originated this discussion from a sense of du<y, but with an unconquerable opposition to its prayer. ~ Wnat he had done he had done under the obligation of his conscience, and if the majority of the House were of opinion thai he was not entitled to the assertion of th.t pi inciple, he must go on and defead himself; but having called for information which was necessary for his defence, he supposed the House would give him time to obtain answers to the resolutions, btforr they proceeded to a decision. Mr. Somen again essayed to get rid of the subject by moving its reference to a select or standing committee, to consider and report what action it would be proper to take in regard to it. On this motion Mr Gilme* was speaking wires the House adjourned, leaving the whole subject lor further consideration to-morrow. All interest, however, in this' business has disaooeared. and now the only anxiety is how, with credit, to get out of the dilemma iu which the i louse has placed itself. Baltimore.
