Messrs.

It is certainly i highly important that they should restore the public j credit, relorm the free banks, introduce economy in i public expenditures, mid iiW all, j;nv us a direct j rail road between Xew York and Albany to compete i uitk Botton If they do these thing', the Regency ' will he supported, in spite of all old prejudices, by < all the independent and honeat portion of the people, I who MTAnt a good and economical government, but ' car# nothing for auy patty or faction as such? i aShe whig* seem, as a purty, in Washington, and j elsewhere, to powew ihe power of sell destruction , in t? eminent degree.

The previous question waa at last demanded and persisted io, d-sptte all the entreaties of thoee who were anxious to have the bill modified. Mr. Hnntwt said he was opposed to the moving of the previous question, unless in extrome rases (and this wta not one of them} as tyrannical and op'pcensive, and he warned gentlemen, if they persisted in it, that they would h .ve late dinners. Mr. If. then, by a series ef ingenious movement*, seconded an he was by the whites, succeeded in protracting the session until three o'clock Daring this Mr So v shames, remarking that he wanted his dinner very much, under the atfuence fan empty stomach, read Mr. liumphrey out of the party; saying that lie had joined hitnseu w.ththe minority, and he hoped he would remain. This personality was stopped by Mr. O'Suliivan calling Mr. Swackharoer tn order. Mr Lo->tna called up his resolution offered yesterday, requiring the railroad companies that have any portion of their roads in operation, to make a report of their receipts cad expenditures, Arc, and was adopted. Mr- Horrwn called tip his resolution requiring tha State sthcers to ntakc h liquidation report, ana it was adopted with an amendment requiring the report thtsday. The resolutions living upon the 7th of October as the day lo choose State officers, and 'he next, to select caoul commiaaioncrs, was then ailed up by Mr Tamblin, and adopted.

A communication was received from the Secretary of the Board of Regents of the University, informing that the office of Regent, filled by Washington Irving, bad become vacant. LlwaUdasaw o tks Press?~A Umrml Wkr against Daniel Webster. We haar a great many complain oi the licentionsneas and immorality of the preaa. bat perhaps one of the most remarkable specimens of the demoralisation of this great institution of modern times and government, has just been set in motion by one set ef politicians to destroy the leader of another.2 Every body knows that immediately after the election of General Harriaoa, there was a certain diqut of unscrupulous politicians, secretly organised nil over the country, for the purpoae of controlling the President, and of shaping future events to their liking. When it began to be publicly known, in the winter of l&K), *41, that Mr. Webster woald probably be offered the State Department by General Harriaoa. this self seme ehqut, through their organs, the Courier Sc Enquirer, See., began to talk oi the propriety ot Mr. W.'s refusing ibe appointment. Mr. W. 1 aki.'s taking office 1, wua looked upon with jealousy, and denounced in private by tho same dique. Things went forward, in the eourae of time, and when the eaon-akin cabinet exploded nder the influence of the two bank vetoes, the ??rae tUqut endeavored to cauae Mr. Webater alao to let go, come down from the tree, and give himaelf up, as the coon did when Capt. John Scott took aim. But Mr. Webater was no coon, and kept his hold up to this day. In consequence of this tenacity of purpose, the sime clique of politicians have hooka out in a new quarter, and have begun a moral war an the great statesman, the first gun of which is the following, from the Louisville Journal. [From the Louitvill* JouratLl Akk-dotb cr Dximki. WKiriL-Aa eminently respectable gentleman, from Washington city, has told us in anecdote oi Mr. Webster, certainly authentic, which prov?? that, although ha ia called '-the god-like," he is pilte as mortal asthe rest of us. Shall wt tell it, reader? Wall, if we must, we must. Some weeks ago, a highly reapsetabla young man from Pennsylvania, who held a subordinate office under Mr. Webster, in the Department of State, and who had his young and beautiful wife with him at Waahiugton, came to lha conclusion, after consulting with her, that bis very scanty income was insufficient for thair maintenance. They knew not what to do; but thinking that woman's appeal might avail wiih the Secretary of State, it was agreed that the wife should call upon him, and solicit a more lacrative appointment for her husband. She accordingly called on him at the Department, and made known her businesa in language of modest and iinple eloquence; concluding with the rt quest that tome clerkship might be given to her husband, in whioh he, by her industry as a transcriber, might add to hit income. The bnrly Secretary gazed upon the pretty 'sco of the pleader, and gloated upon her voluptuous ortn, till Satan fairly took possesaion of him. " Madam," laid he at last, while the Devil stood looking out of his syes as palpably as ever a man looked out ol a window, ' before 1 give you an answer, 1 should like to have you jo into another room with me,aud let me tee a speciaeen if your handwriting." "Oh, osrtaiuly, sir," said the msuspocting fair one. Thereupon, the Secretary stepped nto tne next room, and the lady followed him. He { aused uot there,but passed to a third room,and thelady. though a little surprised, lollowed him. St ill he stopped not, but stalked into a fourth room, and the lady, silent ind wondering, followed him. Then came the development of the mystery. The Secretary closed the door, ind threw his brawny aims around the lady's wsist, ?x;l*imiag, " This, my desr, Is one of tho prerogatives of ny office, and you need"?she waited not for him to loith either the action or the sentence, but gave a ter ific scream, which instantly brought half a dozen clerks o the room, among whom was her husband. As they "shed in, the old debauchee, we hardly Heed say, ashed out. The young man took his wifo home; and the next day, laving in the mean time resigned his office, he oalled upon Mr. Webster. Mr. W. instantly commenced an bumblu and abject apology; but tho young man cut him ikort " Sir." said he, ia a tone before which the Secretary cowered, " I come not here for an apology. Your iafamous conduct admits of none. Yeu are en unprincipled villain; and, were it not for your exalted station in thecouucils of ihu country,1 would this instant sacrifice you to my just vengeance. Sir, 1 scorn you. and spit at you." Having thus unburdened himself, the Injured busband turned upon hit heels. Such is the outrageous aad ridiculous Action which is put forward by George D- Prentice, the editor of the Louisville Journal. This Prentice is a sort of a drunken poet, very much in want of the Temperance Pledge, and no doubt he was in a state of glorious intoxication when the libel was penned. The story is utterly improbable on its face.? The State Department at Washington, is crowded with clerks, office-seekers, politicians, loafers, and all sorts of people, so that it would be utterly impossible for Mr. Webster to take a lady from one room to another without being seen and heard by hundreds. It there was any foundation for the story, it was probably a trap laid to give some color to an attack upon his private character. The intense hate which a certain rfiqu: of politicians, who have their head in Kentucky sRd their extremities every where, entertain to any prominent man that may interfere with the " Magnns Apollo" can be better imagined than described. Two thirds sf the violent hatred with which certain newspapers have assailed the New York Herald, have originated in a political hostility, because this jonrnal was independent and fearless.? For nearly two years a moral war has been been urged against us, by this cfique?a war, utterly reckless, unscrupulous, and beastly. But we have survived it and came out of it triumphant. The same elements of hate and beastliness have now concentrated their force on the Secretary of State,and assailed his private character?dogged his footsteps and picked up the scandal of the day to destroy his repu tation and character. In this region of the country, among 'the stews, it is possible that the Louisville Journal may find congenial spirits?but if they proceed far in this horrible system of defamation they will soon find their length and breadth. Licentiousness of the press! There is nothing so beastly ss the morals and conduct of these political dique* that are trying to get office and spoils, any how and any way. The I.oxg Lo?t 1'Rfa.ideht.?It is supposed from the following extract from the log book ofiitc brig Potiltney, Captain James Moult, ofGaltimore, that the hull of this long lost steamer has at last been seen. July 31, It A. M. 1st 40 31, n. long. SOU W. from n. York for Smyrna, passed a large njeca of wreck. sixty feet long?thirty to forty wide, and looked like the brotd side of s steam boot. It appeared to be part of the main channels, having four dead eyea, with turned mouldinga and long flat iron atraps. Iler hulk was black, with a broad white streak,and large painted black porta. There waa ablteof a hauser over a piece of wood, apparently The ill fated President was seen both here and in Liverpool by the chief mate of the Poullney, and he unhesitatingly any* that the" wreck passed was part of that Meant ehip. Every thing about the wreck plainly showed front their great size and manufacture that they belonged not to any merchant vessel or a man of war, but to a largo steamer. We think as the mate does, 0.1 this point, and believe the wreck seen to have been that of the unfortunate, ill stared President. Boziana.?The Dickens fever is getting to be outrageous.

Kind Feelings of the Emperor. Another ship came in from China yesterday, namely, the .Valparaiso, which sailed from Maeoo on the 14th of October. It appears that another Celeatial city has been knocked into a cocked hat by the gnna of Knglaad Hingpo, the greatest commercial place in all China, was captured after a brief fight. This city is situated opposite the Island of Cbnann, and to the north of Amoy. It bad been determined by Sir Henry Pottingner to go into winter quarters, after ibe lak!ng of Xingpo. This will give the Emperor time to reiect.? In the spring, nearly the wbole British force will commence operations fmther to the north and penetrate to Pekin. We do not believe his Celestial Majesty will make any concession of consequents till that is done. An edict had been received from the Emperor, ordering the English to be treated with reepecr. This was after the capture of Amoy, and shows the very amiable feelings of his majesty. With the exception of the affair at Ningpo, every thing appeared to be in the same stale as when the Probus sailed. It is said that the Mandarins, to keep the Chinese soldiers from running, when the attack was made on Amoy, chained them to their guns. Than, when the English landed, the long qued Mandarins took to their heels, and left the poor soldiers at the mercy of the enemy. One Mandarin, just befoie the attack,, sent a flag of trace to &i English captain, stationed opposite bis fort, and desired to make an agreement that neither should use balls, but to blaze away at each other with powder. He said it would please the Emperor just as much as if balls were fired. All was quiet at Amojr. There was a report when the Valparaiso sailed of the loss of the armed steamer Madagascar, on the east coast, and that the fleet.had suffered considerably from heavy galea Fears were entertained at Macao that the Xerbudda, transport, with one hundrsd and seventeen souls on board, hod been lust. A boat from her, with thirty-three souls, chiefly soldiers, had been picked up; they reported leaving the Nerbudda in a sinking state, having driven over a large reef off the north end of Formosa. The boat had been eight days at sea when picked up. The Nimrod sloop of war bad been sent in search of the Nerbudda. The mate and one of the bands of a British smuggler, were decoyed on shore near Churan and murdered by the mandarins, in consequence of which the crews of several of the smuggling vessels landed and with the assistance of the crew of H. M.'s steamer Phlegethon, burned a village and killed all the Chinese they could find. There had been a good deal of sickness in the settlement at Macao, and many inhabitant and Chinese had fallen victims 4o a kind of influenza which was travelling about. We give below all the intelligence worth reading Also some verses, hitting off Captain Elliot and his negotiations. I From th? Cantos Prcss.'Oe*. (Ui to lath ] We have no farther accounts of the movements ol the fleet, although the Chinese say that letters have been received dated the ?:h of last month from Ningpo. stating that city to have been taken and destroyed by the English. There are reports that an Imperial edict has lately been received in Canton, of s pacific nature, but we have not been able to trace this report to anv satisfactory source, nor are we inclined to put much faith in it, the indications of hostile intentions being so much more numerous and better autheniieated. The forts aesr Canton and the river are being repaired and garrisoned; great quantities of guns and musketaliave been of late purchased by the Chinese, and these are even imported into Macao by British verse Is The Chinese state it to be really a fact that Keshen has been tried by a commission at Peking, found guilty, and was to be strangled after the " Leihtsew" holidays (7th August ]! The Comprador was likewise condemned to the ignominious punishment ofbeiug cut to pieces, and a mandarin who had recommend ed him to Keshen's notice was also to suffer death At the same time it is said that Lin is about to be recalled from banishment and again received into Imperial favor. All thi9 looks not as if the Peking government intended vary soon to come to terms. In addition to this we hear that a high mandarin, late Viceroy of the Province of Ilooawaag, has arrived in Canton to take chief eommaad over the troops at Canton, with whom it is said he intend!* very shortly to reoccopy the position at the Bogue. It is said that this new Commander wkoia about to play a conspicuous part in the war, had for some cause or other incurred the Imperial displeasure, and was about to be sent to the cold country to keep Lin and Tang company, but he appeasecf his master's wrath by a promise, that if the command were given him, he would aoon rid the Empire of the invaders. By this promise he has for the present avoided Sunishment, but it seems very donbtfal that he will e able to keep it. Every thing seems to portend a long continued struggle, and we sincerely trust that the government at home may be prepared for it, and send out the necessary reinforcements. The force at present in China ana on its way out seems ta be inadequate to the purposes it has been sent for. Excepting a few sad not heavy showers, we have had no raia almost since the typhoons ia July last, and the consequence lias been that the winter ricecrop ia likely to be much injured by the continued drought. Already rice, ue are told, is rising in price, and should rain not come soon, the crop, which is generally cut in the middle of next month, will be very scanty. Daring the last five years the province of Canton at least bae enjoyed moat abundant harvests, and w? believe the price of rice has never been known to continue so low in price as it has been since IKW. We are told that up to aow about 12 inches less than the usual quantity of rain basfailen, aor m it likely this will be made up, the months of October and November being generally very dry. It ia with deep regret we have to announce the death of the Rev. Joequim Alfonso Gnnaalves, whose loos will be severely felt by the students of the Chinese language. Padre Goaaalvee was a native ol I The Preach frigate I'Erigoae, Captain Cecille, which arrived at Btngapore aboat six weeks since, left there early last month for Manilla. It ia said that 1 this ship wilt follow the movements of the British fleet on the coast of China, aad that she has on board aa Envoy from the King of the French to the Km peter of China- The Dnnaidc has left lioag-koog tar northward some tinaa since. A great number of troops are said to bo again col wctiag ia aad aear Canton, aad tho wives and (ami"* ?t Mandarins are agaia leaving.

Our opinion is that the Msatchow dynasty should be overthrown, another placed en the throne, and China be thrown open to all the world: this end, we think, would be infinitely preferable than to possess any portion of ita territory uoderthe present dynasty.

The locofocoe appeared to be in better order, and took the drill much more kindly. The Major visited the White House, sad shook hands with Captain Tyler, and, for any thing that we know to the contrary, th? following conversation took place between the Captain and the Major: Major Noah ?I hare seen it aiated in some of the papers, hostile to your administration of afTaii*, that there was a difference of opinion between yourself and Mr. Webster, and he would probably soon leave the Cabinet. President?It is true, Major, that a difference of opinion on some subjects, between myself and the Secretary ef State does r xist; but I trust that I shall not, in cor sequence of this difference of opinion, be deprived of his valuable services in ihe Cabinet. Major.?If my request is not an improper one, Captain, I should like exceedingly well to know the important subjects on wbioh you differ in opinion. President ?Ob, your request is by no means improper; I will answer you honestly and frankly.
