On the arrival of tin n raoinin; mails, at eight o'clock, A. M.?and alto ol th evening mails, at foaro'clock, P. M., the latest intulligenr '' from nil parts of the world, ma* be found on the Herat c Bul.etia Boar J, at this corner. 'Let every wayfarer stoj . an J read. A Ivertieememe of all kinds taken at the othc ; t] H Utrald General Printing Office.

A similar meet- 1 in? wis held on Tuesday in Philadelphia. The whole country is awake. We have no room for any remarks to-day. ConKress must back out or he hacked out. pi jvkmevrs or thk Naw Cobporatiov?Inten.se Agitation.?The decision of the Supreme Court giving the ascendancy to the Whigs in the Common Council, until it be reversed by the Court of Errors, if that should ever take place, has produced a per- J feet explosion in the political circles of the city?an 1 earthquake among the gin shops?a hurricane in the rum holes?u revolution that will be felt throughout t every extremity of the country. * The instant removal of severnl hundred office- , holders, rind the appointment of an equal number of ' i]fr other side, spring from two motives. The one arises from the wish of the Whigs to give the 1 "spoils to the victors"?and the other to create a spirited movement in favor of Henry Clay for the next Presidency. It is announced by the "Courier" that all those appointed are friendly to .Mr. Clay, , and. from the general tone and complexion of the whole movement, we presume their statement is accurate. In another aspect the Whigs appear to 1 he entirely governed by the influences of Wall street ' ?for the principal journals taken into favor are those i entirely in the interest of the cli'/uet of that far famed j avenue. i This revolution, however, is an accidental one. ' At the last election, the locofocos had a positive numerical majority of l,!?tK). It is utterly impossible for the Whigs to retain their power or ascendancy, unless they act with great coolness, liberality, justice, and moderation, sufficient lo change this mamritv and re-create a new part v. In 1SS37, the Wiiigshad a similar run ?>t luck, but they became no intoxicated with power?so intolerant and overbearing?so wild and reckless, that it soon lead to their subsequent defeat. It will be necessary for the Whigs to adopt some hold nnd popular policy in order to strengthen and consolidate their power, or to have any chance of electing Mr. Clay to the Presidency. If they go to work at once?establish a preventive police, so necessary for the well being and order of the city?put a finish to the introduction of the Croton water?introduce a new and efficient system of cleansing the streets?organize the public schools on liberal principles?they may be able to increase their popularity, and form a body of adherents that may last a while. Ilut if the listen to the narrow, selfish,'vindictive councils of Wall street, their career will be short. Already they have created a bad fueling in their own ranks, by some oh- J noxious appointments?particularly that of Charles i King. Til numerous removals they have already ' nude will also create some bittter see it's of domes- , tic distress. I The great number of office-holders arc generally 1 poor, lazy, and penniless, with plenty of fine chil < dren, but few resources to live upon, lfy the re- j inovaJ of six hundred office-holders at one felf i swoop, we m iy safely estimate that nearly fLc 1 thouundmen, und women, and children are thrown | as beggars upon society at large. This will create ! a fearful amount of misery and bitterness of spirit. J Vet if the movement will eventuate in the eleva- t tton of Mr. Clay, and to the advantage of Wall ' street interests, including a new IT. S. Bank, we sup- i pose taut the tears of the wives, of the mothers, and of tin: poor children, will only water more richly 'lie roots erf the tree of profit and patriotism, and make it bloom brightly. Many old tnen have also been removed?even down to the poor old negro who was superintendent of the cabinet d'atsnnre ol the Corporation, at a yearly salary of $t?l> or so. This is hold iind sweeping work?.tnd goes a bit beyond (he whole hog. However, il' the highly rcpectable Wall street gentlemen, who get in debi troin sMiVl.O I) to SI/*10,000, and take the beneli- , of the act, ure gr.ititied by the tears of the wretched and the long faces of the needy, we suppore it is , all rig'.it and all proper, according to the modern code of morals. At present there i.-, a most intense feeling of mingled bitterness and exultation abroad?and the new Common Council will have to walk warily and cautiouslv.

In RrkUan to the Conduct of Congress conirrnlne the !V?vy. A very luri<?*, and highly respectable meeting was add at the corner of" Fulton and Cranberry streets, irooklyn, in the Court Koom of Oyer and Termier, last night, to express their opinions in relation o the conduct of Congress in cutting down and rippling the navy The room was full, uudatiner, lardier, or mora honest set of men perhaps ware iever aaiembled toirelher Half an hour after the appointed time, Mr Smith, he late Mayor, rose and said, that he perceived that heir worthy, patriarchal friend, and the friend of nir common country, General Jeremiah Johnson, v.is present. He therefore moved that he be rejuesied to take the Chair This was put and c arried unanimously. Mr. IJ. A. 11 ikkk then moved that the following ;eutlemen he appointed Vice I'resiJents and oecrearies. Vice Ptr.iiDr..in Bf.nj. Blossom, Jamb* G. Usdikhill, Divid Coofe. John A. Crihi, Ctrl'* P. Smith, Jrooi P. G. Bekiie*, SllH LAW, Gr.OKOK B. KIJK. Alkiaitdkh Nkwma.v, Secretaries. A. U. Bati.i*, S. Alpheu* Smith. John LKACil.jr. The call of the meeting was tlien read. Gen. Jniivsnx then said, that it was a wise maxim, in icace to iircparn for war?General Washington had eft tin* a* a legacy to his country. Brooklyn, New fork, Pensaeola, Boston, and New Orleans, were depenlent on the navv. That man who arrested the success md increase of the navy was no friend to his country. Congress had now cast 600 men out of employ here. Con[ress hud been seven moullihin session, and never touched heir own pocket*?they had done little but cut down the lavv and army?but would not touch their own pockets ir their eight dollars a day. He was a farmer, and before ae found fault with his 'neighbor's garden, he ought to weodhisowu. (Cheers.) Let them protect their country by ? wist- tariff, untl they w ould have plenty of money in the treasury. (Cheer*.) There w an iron in every hill in the country, and yet we ride over foreign iron from one end of the country to the other. The General then spoke of the cotton and wool trade briefly?but the great point was the navy. If we laft our ports unprotected, aud our onrnavy to lot in the harbor, what was to save us? Four ships of war once arrived at 9 o'clock ofi Sandy Hook, and before 'i F. M. they had taken the city. It was two hundred years ago. Lord Cartwright was governor of the city, and Bronckson and Evarts, two Dutchmen, took the city in four hours. Great prejudice existed in regard to New Vork city aud State ; she was culled the Empire State in contempt ; and various other epithets were applied to this uole slate, by way of derision ; but this was a very mistaken i>oliey on the part of the south, and those states which w ere foolishly jeulous of her. In n commercial, financial, and ]>olitical point of view. New Vork stood proudly pre-eminent. She was a source of immense revenue to the whole of the agricultural anil commercial population of the whole country?she was a mine of wealth?an everlasting treasure to the United States. And. strike New York and Brooklyn out of existence, and the Union itself would uot 1ms worth preserving. The venerable gentleman sat down amid loud cheers. Mr. J. M. Vis CoTr being called upon, rose and said:? Mr. Chairman?It seeins to have become the fashion of late, not only l'or great tnen, but also for small men, (to which class I belong) to define their position, and I mean, sir, before entering into consideration of the substantial (juration which has cullo.1 us together this evening, to define mine. 1 do not appear here, sir, as a party man, or to address you as party men. 1 am not here, sir, to subserve the cause ot any man or party, as such. I hold, and I think every man should hold his individual opinion on |s>litical questions, but I came here not as a whig, not as a friend to John Tyler,or on enemy to John Tyler, nor as a friend or an enemy to the Congress. 1 come here according to the call which has gathered this meeting together, to consider the situation of those who have been thrown out of employ by the poller lately pursued by the government of the' country. 1'he occasion which lias called us together, fellow-citizens demands serious attention, not only on account of the class immediately effected, but the state of the country at large. (Applause.) It is my pur|iosc briefly then to con. sider the expediency of this change of policy, both with regard to individuals and the nation. It is but a short time since it was sup|>oseti, likelv we should be plunged into u war with the most powerful maritime power in the world. At that time the country was in a defenceless state, a s ate iisgrucelul to us, and involving fearful consequences to he whole line of our seaboard. While war was appretenJed with Great Britain Congress was convened aud ap iropriauons wen1 mn.ii* 10 piu ine country 111 a state oi if defence, and in u short tiuio all was activity to put the ountry in a state of etticiunt defence. But a minister ha aeen sent to this country to negotiate,and heloru any result e known, before uny thing ilelinite has transpired, before we c in ealculate with eoniidenceon the pacilie intentions .if Ureal Britain towards this country, these works are suddenly stopped, and that without any material change having been etlVcted in the condition of the defences of the country. Certainly they have been at work upon ships, hut they are not launched ; they have too been at work upon the fortifications, but they tire not placed in a coudi:ion for efficient defence. We have gone on spending a {reat deal of money and stopt short hesore we have accomplished the completion of any thing. We have, in act, accomplished nothing. Now*, the questions we have :o consider are, whut will be the ellect of this policy o! jur government in discontinuing our public works and in cutting off the appropriations for the navy and its effects upon our means of defence, and 111*111 those dependent for subsistence uj>on the produce of their labor on the public works I There is no disguising the fact that n very large portion of our fellow citizens entered into the employment of the government in the Navy Yard in the expectation ol being employed for a considerable time, and this sudden strike, this sudden deprivation of employment, has throw n them on the world with their famili.is, nnd has deprived them of the means of subsistence. [Applause.] There are hundreds of our fellow citizens dependent for their mointenence upo i their honest labor and industry and they are suddenly deprived of the fruits of thei'r industry. What ore the consequences of this policy ?? Nothing is more plain than that there arc but three alternatives?he must either Act;, slan t or s(?jf (applause.) ? lie mast either sacrifice his independence as a man and g? to the poor house to get there his daily bread, or he must sacrifice that priceless jewel of his soul, integrity, bytheft, and so go in the way to prison?(Applause.)?Is not this the inevitable consequence 1?be must either go to the poor house or steal. We cannot look upon the condition of these men, thrown unjustly out of employment by the action of Congress w ithout feelings of comnusteration ami without raising our sympathies on their behalf. And what is the condition of the country? That was a wire maxim, in peace to be prepared for w ar. Is there any thing definite known whether thero w ill he peace or war. The Boundary question is to be sure in a fair way of settlement, hut what has become of the Creole case, and what has hecome of the question ol the Right of Search, on which we went to war before, and which is Identified with the interest of our country ? lias O.-eat Britain conceded any thing on that quastion ? or has she expressed any willingness to recede from her position 1 If not,it is the settled opinion of this country that war will ho inevitable. I say lor one, hetbre I will abandon to Oreat Britain the question of the right of search, before 1 will give up the shelter of that flag which I conceive should be the emblem of national sovereignty, both on th. land an i the ocean, I for one am prepared for war, and 1 believe thnt is tlteopinion of the whole rountrv. I say w have not taken recognizances of Oreat Britain to keop th. l>e?ce, and we have nothing but the hope of every good man, and every friend to his country, thnt we shall avoid war. 1 say that war is not only possible, but it is probable I Is the country in any hotter position for war than it was a yenrtiuce? Are our fortifications in a state to be efficiently defended? Is our navv fit to cope with tin enormous naval power of Oreat Britain? To Oreat Bri toin. with it* steam power and frigates, its drilled navy and its great efficiency, nothing is easier than to send fleet after fleet to our seaboard! Oreat Britain would be able il we now went to war, to sweep the sea of every veasel carrvingthe American flag ! She could force the passage ol the narrows, ami enter every port in the United State1:, and almost lay every city in ashes! I ask, fellow citizens, is not this disgraceful to our country ? Is not the country in u fearful state Is this economy ? It is such economy as would save at the spigot and waste at the bunghole! I say that economy consists In spending as well as earning ! It is in fact judicious expenditure. What is the end to be obtained! Wearcia danger of war. an-l not in a condition to meet it. If a sudl.-n war will. or,.at Britain brents mil I.I (>.> at.t. to destroy millions u;>on millions of our property, and iv? are told that to save n few dollars, these men' must be turned out of employment, and the eountry left defenceless as it was months ago. (Applause.) These, fellowcitizens, nre substantially my views of the question, and we nun call on the government in a loud voice, and in a tone not to ba mistaken, to put the country in a condition of defence; to remember that maxim of George Washington. " in peace he prepared for war."* 1 say our own protection demands this; and if we refer to our gallant navy it we rafertoour recollections of the past, of the glory which it achieved, w hat man is there that is not satisfies with the appropriations made, to enable the navv to b? put ill a condition to cope with that of Great Britain, an ! to enable it to a id to those laurels already gained by it Isith on the ocean and the lakes. (Tremendous applause.) As aoon 11s he had got through, n Mr. Trendwell, a violent locoloco, row, and -mid, thai he wished H put a definite proposition before the meeting, thai they might have something to net upon. I'pon tin* there was considerable uproar and commotion anions the whig imrtion of the audience, and a cry ol " Sandford," " Sandlord," from a little knot of Clay men in the ronur. <bi this n hard working man rose in the back part of the room, ant: -"'id, " Mr. Chuirmun, it is moved and seconded here, th it Mr. Trendwell make a few remarks." The Chairman sin I, ' It is moved and i-econdet that Mr. Inroad well be allowed to speak ; all you ii lavor ot it, say aye." A large number called out I aye. * .i.mr.? 11 i* r.irrird.

(Ureal find Inntr r.mtimiA/1 AhA#rinir.\ Aj soon as Mr. Treadwell concluded,Mr. Saaford i^se to oiler some olher resolutions. A question of order arose hh to their reception, hut they were finally read. Mr. SA*rnRi> saiil, that we were cniiKtautly exposed to c real danger from want of a navy, and that all of a sudden they had struck down the navy, without any adequate reason for so doing. We meet as the sovereign'people, in their primary assembly, not to discuss party measures, but for the general welfare of the common country, to trll our servants in Congress that they have deserted us, and that we demand from them our first great right, the support of our glorious navy to protect us from a foreign foe, and to protect our most valuable and extensive commerce. This is our business, and concerns us here at home, and wu have a right to demand of ( orients that they come forward and do their simple duty, and protect us, and protect all our merchant snips in every sea, aud in every clime. They say, "wo are too poor!" Too poor! Why, steal the money ii you can't get it anr other way. (Cheers ) Too poor!, Why, a three month's session of Congress at a day, would have left us with money enough to tit out all our "ships handsomely, if the members of Congress had gone home then. (Loud choors.) I know not what the real reason of the conduct of Congress in acting so is, but I know that the real consequences will be dreadful anJ distressing in the extreme. Ah noon as he hail got through, there was considerable discussion, and a great deal of fun as to whether both or neither of the resolutions should be put. Finally, a committee of three were appointed to retire and embody the two sets in one. During their absence two or three persons spoke for a few minutes each. One of them said, that he thought before they proceeded to condemn the Executive, they ought to enquire whether the President of the United States hud not discharged his duty as far as lay in his power, while Congress refused to make appropriations ; and if it was so, he certainly ought not to be condemned. On the return of the committee with the resolutions, which had had a few alterations made in them, it was moved and carried that they be read, and ucted upon_ separately. They were then adopt ed in tli<? order following, one man moving that the eigiit resolutions lie printed in CAPITALS. Whereas the relations between the United States ami Great Britain have, for severnf years past, been in an unsettled condition, and whereas our own government has in accordance with public opinion, ordered a very considerable addition to onr naval defences, and the early completion and equipment of the vessels now building may have a favorable influence in preserving peace, or, failing in that, will he indispensably needful in war. Therefore Resolved, That the present period is, of all times, the most unsuitable for relaxing our exertions for the defence of our country ; and that to discharge men from our Navy Yards now, is as prejiosterous, n> it would be to dismantle our Navy, and disband our Army, in time of war. Resolved, Tliat it is the i first duty of the Government to provide effectually for the protection and security of thi! people, and a neglect of this duty can be excused only by inability to maintain our national sovereignty and in dependence. Resolved, That the right arm of our defence is an efficient Navy : we look back with honest pride to the day when we successfully contested the claim to the empire of the seas with the sell-styled " Mistress of the Ocean,' md we have no fears for the future so long as our battle'hips shall display in the face of every nation, and lift to lie breeze in every clime, the glorious ensign of the Republic. Resolved, That there has never been a time more urgently demanding the augmentation and growth of our Navy than the present. Second only to one nation in our commercial operations, we arc but the fifth in naval power ; and while our coasts and harbors are visited daily by steamers and naval officers in the service of cauntrivwith whom our |>oliticul relations are in an unsettled an I precarious condition, a wise foresight requires us to be well prepared for w hntevcr emergency may await us. Resolved, That whileour country is thus menaced with war, by our most powerful competitor in manufactures and in commerce, it is the imperative duty of Congress, not to weaken, but to strengthen and render efficient, our means of naval defence. Resolvod, That wc have seen with regret that orders have been recently issued by the government to ay up our ships in ordinary, to discharge the workmen troui our Na\ y y ards, and to stop the progress ol our naval prepa rations; we believe such a policy at this time to be ruin ous and suicidal to our best interests and national welfare, and as freemen and citizens of the Republic, we solemnly and earnestly protest against this w antou and hearties* sacrifice ol'national honor, national pride, national se?urity, and of nil the glorious recollection! associated with the names of IVrry, of Hull, of Bainbridge, and Decntur. Resolved, That tve can see no reason lor tuch a sacrifice. It is a libel on the patriotism and intelligence of the people to oll'er for it the plea of eoonoiny. We feel a pride in uur navy, nnd are willing to be taxed for the gratification of our pride. In possession of almost unlimited means and material for an efficient navy, with our commerce now scarcely half protected, we will never consent that it shall be destroyed while we have a plank left to lloat on the waters, and ti sailor to carry on it the start and stripe.ofthel'nion. Resolved, That if Congress cannot otherwise, within the scope of their power, obtain the means to pay the Mechanics* for completing the ships and steam batteries now in progress, they ought forthwith to reduce their own wages frmn eight to tu-o dollars per day ; or to an average rate of wagesjpaid to working men in the Navy Yards. Resolved, Taint the hopes and the feelings of the officers of the Navy, ought not to bo trampled on or slightly regarded, and the dismissal of thousands of laborers from the public service in the present depressed condition ol industry, presents a case of peculiar hardship and distress, which no existing necessity can justify. Resolved, That a memorial lie addressed to the Senators and Representatives of the United States, in Congress assembled, requesting (hat such measures may be speedily taken and such appropriations may be made, ns will be nec.casary to secure a vigorous prosecution of all works essential'to the national security and honor, to afford ade, (|iiate protection to our commere'e, and to give to the Navy of the Vi> rd States that power and efficiency, which the j- dan.p-rs threatening us from our unsettled relations abroad imperatively demand, i The following is the memorial:? To lit* Honorable, the Senate, and House nj Represenla lives, in Congress ?Ittembled : The undersigned, residents of Brooklyn, have noticed with regret a proposition to reduce the appropriations to 1 the Now to so small an amount as to have the effect ol grca'lv decreasing, if not to suspend entirely the public works ,u that Department, thus weakeniug the arm of Na tionnl Defence, and at the same time to throw out of em' plovmeut a large number of men, who with their lamilics must sutlier exceedingly at the present crisis of pecuniar) affairs. Your petitioners, therefore respectfully, hut earnestly appeal to your Hon.,ruble iodic* to make'such appropria ' tions as will benecessary to secure a vigorous pruseeti 1 lion of such works as are essential to the national security and honor, mi.I at the ?rrae time, thereby*, relieve tboii *and? offamiliei from the moit imminentili?tn*?.

Burning of til* large and valuable Store or Hnrpera, Rrothera, thi celebrated Publishing llonw?Burglary ot James' Mew Novel. I About 4 o'clock yesterday morning, the large pub| lislung house of the celebrated booksellers, Har pers, urotners, 01 uus cny, i-un street, wan aiscovered to be on fire in the fourth story*, occupied as their bindery, and before the flames could be sub iued, the whole ol the fourth and fifth stones and their valuable contents were demoyed The fire was discovered about 4 o'clock, by some females residing in the next house, (which 19 a boarding house); as they were getting up for the day, they saw llames issuing Ironi two side windows on the north side of the building on the fourth lloor, which w.is occupied exclusively as one of lite binderies of this enterprising firm. On seems; the Amies they screamed out, and were heard b\ \fr. Fletcher Harper, who resides hut two doors off. As soon its he could get into the street, he saw smoke issuing from the building, and gave the alarm. The Hall bell then brought the engines down s[?eedily and in abundance, No. 5 we believe b-ing first on the spot, and the Soulhwark and steam Fire Engine being there soon after. All the other engines were speedily there, a line was formed to the river, up Ferry street, and down JJike slip. The hydrants were opened, and in about 25 minutes there was a tremendous body of water thrown into the building. Ry this time the fire was making tremendous hendway in the fourth and fifth stories, raging furiously throughout the whole length of that largp building in these two stories, bursting out of iwfuiy n ljiiiowH ai our**, ana mrougn uie rooi, threatening destruction to the whole building, and in fart the whole block. And by five o'clock, every one but the firemen hud given up all hope of saving any of this valuable property. And here it would be pro|>er to state that this large building is divided into five stories, which are thus occupied : On the first floor is the counting room and a large warerooni, literally crammed full of books ready for sale. The second floor is occupied exclusively as a press room, and contains about thirty presses. The third story is divided into two rooms ; one is the large girls' folding and stitching room, and the other is a small press room. The fourth story was the larga and valuable bindery of the establishment, divided into two rooms, and the fifth was the general ware room. In the latter, the warehouseman had lately kept the most valuable unbound books which are published by this house, in order to have them near to the bindery. All the less valuable unbouud stock was kept in their large printing establishment, immediately opposite the burnt building. This wureroom was crammed full of their best stock. In the bindery at this time were about 20,000 copies of James' new novel, Mori.hy Ku.nstein, many of them bound up, ready for delivery this very day, which book, there is no doubt at all, was the motive for incendiarism, as we shall presently show. The presence of such an enormous quantity of combustible material as paper, and paper shavings, fed the flames so freely, that it required almost superhuman elforts on the part of the firemen to get them unter, and for a long time the fate of the whole was doubtful When the roof was burnt off, the wind caught the loose sheets and leaves by thousands upon thousands, and carried them up into the Bowery, and even over to Brooklyn. Several ol the streets around were literally covered with book? und stray literature of all kinds, und the air scented full ofleaves?book leaves?flying in all directions. The firemen placed a ladder against the fourth story windows, from which the flames were issuing furi ously, eight of them mounted with the horn-, and before they could reach the fourth story, the fire had burnt the top of the ladder off, and they all came near losing their lives. However, they persevered, two of theni reached the top, poured in a tremendous stream, and arrested the flames in that quarter By this time many tons of water were being poured into the building every minute, and it wwseen that the progress of the fire was checked; and in an hour afterwards all danger was over. But tin firemen worked as men scarcely ever worked be fore, and deserve everlasting credit for their exertions, and the good judgment by which they wer> directed. The Loss.?The flames did not pass below the fourth story, but the whole of the large stock in the folding room, was destroyed by the water. The presses in the second story were also injured by the water. On the first story there was a very valuable stock, closely packed, and of course it is much injured by water, though by no means to the extent that might have been supposed. About four-fifthtof it are injured. Every thing in the fifth story was destroyed by fire, and what little the fire spared in the fourth story was destroyed by water. The total loss, at a fair calculation, cunnot be less than $100,000. Of this large sum we are pleased to say the firm has $45,000 insured in several offices, and we regret that they are not fully covered. The loss is upon the Jefferson, Mutual Safety, Bowery, Equitable, Hartford, and Spring Gardens, Philadelphia, Insurance Coinjianies. Such is the loss, and it is well it is no worse ; for when the stock of books in the estab itsnment was laiten a very anori nine suicr, uuigreat firm had $230,000 worth of book stock 011 hand. In short, they had the largest and most valuable stock in the United Slates. Most fortunately, all their stereotype plates, the choicest part of their property, was uninjured, being safely stowed away in vaults under the street. And all their extensive printing establishment is uninjured. They have also a very large building in Hague 9treet, where they can fit up a new bindery, and new folding and press rooms, and be all ready for full operation in 49 hours. Csfsx of the Firk.?There is no doubt that it was the act of an incendiary; and the principal cause was the securing of one or two sets of James's newnovel, Morley Ernstein, and the destruction of the remainder ol the edition. It appearsthat the Harpers, by paying very large stun" to James and Bulwer, get a manuscript copy ol their novels. They had this new novel all printed, r bound, and ready to be packed and sent into the country this very day. It became known to the trade that they had the work ready, and during the last week or so, one or two offered the Harpers large sums for the privilege of publishing it. pari fxitsH. with them. This they.refused, and did not let a copy leave the place ; and up to last night at closing the store not a copy had left the bindery. Another publishing house offered a well known printer, &c., a very (urge premium if he could procure I a copy by any means. All sorts of means were resorted to by certain persons to obtain a copy of the work, but up to last night without avail.

Washington. [Correspondence of the ilersld.] Washinqton, Tuesday?3 P. M. Proceedings In botH Hostaea? Klectlon of a President of the Senate. The Senate was called to order half an hour later than usual this morning, by Mr. Dickens, the Secretary. After a prayer by Mr. Tusian, the Secretary read a letter from Mr. Southard, resigning the office of President pro tempore ol the Senate. Mr. 1'errien then moved that the Senate proceed to the election of a presiding officer. A ballot was then taken, which resulted as follows :? Mr. Mangum, 44 vote*. Mr. King, 14 votes. Mr. Bayard, 4 votes. Messrs. Sevier, Kerr, Clayton, and Tallmadgehad one each, and one blank. Forty-five votes in all? twenty-three necessary for a choice?no election. On the second ballot, the same number of votes were given, of which Mr. Mangum received 23, the necessary number, and was declared to be duly | elected, lie was conducted to the chair by Messrs. Preston and Miller, and made a brief acknowledgment of the honor. On motion of Mr. Sevier, a resolution was adopted tendering the thanks of the Senate to Mr. Southard, for the courteous mannvr in which he had discharged the duties of presiding officer. Some unimportant business was transacted, and then the apportionment bill was taken up, upon which tho Senate is now engaged. The House adopted a resolution this morning to meet at ten o'clock from and after Monday next. This will give an hour more lor talking, without helping the business at all. Mr. Campbell of South Curoiina, reported a bill from the committee on the District of Columbia, to prohibit the sale of lottery tickets in the District. An unimportant memorial was presented, and the House then went into committee of the whole, and resumed the consideration of the Army appropriation hill. The discussion is goini( on with unabaited vigor, and bids fair to be continued for a week yet. To-morrow and the succeeding day are set apart by a vote of the House for the transaction of business relating to the District of Columbia. Friday and Saturday are private bill days, so the Army bill can hardly he disposed of this week. It was expected that tltc House would be prepared to take up ffie tarifl the fiat of ne<t v >k, \ but that seems hardly possible now. Every thing i conspires to discourage the high tariff men. In the first place, the sentiment of the country is averse to hostile legislation upon commerce for the benefit of a tew men, who are already doing well enough without any further protection from the government. Then their own folly in permitting the land question to he mixed up with the revenue measure, is enough alone to defeat their wishes. And, lastly, the absurdity of talking about protection, when common sense and common prudence dictate that the whole matter should be considered and settled as a measure of revenue and political economy. It is idle to talk of maturing a detailed tarilf at the present session of Congress. There will be but twanty-one working days for both Houses to consider and pass such a bill before the 30th of June, when the minimum clause of the compromise act goes into operation, and more than a hundred members of the House are already crammed for a speech apiece upon it. After some half a score of these discourses have been delivered, the House will discover the inipossiblity of doing anything in season ; and, laying the bill aside, will set to work and pars a simple revenue bill, imposing an average duty on imports of some thirty percent, or adopt a joint resolution continuing in force the defective law of the extra session. In such an event, an effort will be nmde to resume the consideration of the tariff bill, and protract the session until it shall have been completed. This proposition will be vigorously opposed and probably defeated. If it succeeds, the session may run well into the autumn. The vote for Mr. Mangum, exhibits precisely the strength of Mr. Clay in the Senate. Mr. M. was elected by twenty-three votes?four less than a ninlority of a full Senate. There were nineteen democrats present, and twenty-six whigs. Of the whtgs three only voted against Mr. Mangum, who had been nominated by a caucus. Who these three were must be matter of conjecture. Messrs. Woodbridge, Merrick, Southard and Phelpa were absent. Probably Messrs. Choate, Evans, and Sprsgue voted against the candidate of the Clay caucus. The other , Senators who profess great friendship for the Administration, and control the governmeut patronage in their own States, quietly submitted to the dictation of a caucus, and voted for Mr. Mangum.the most violent and vindictive nssailant of the President in trner nouse 01 congress. 3tr. iuerncK. who taott both sidee, and nil fides, and no side until he knows I who are like to be winners, wm, very conveniently ibsent. If the President (permits himself to be bamboozled hereafter by any of these men, whatever may be their professions or promises, he must be the most credulous and confiding man alive. Half a dozen Senators might be named who have been to the ' President aeain and again, making the wannest protestations of confidence and regard, and pledging themselves to sustain the measures of the Administration, every one of whom plnvs the game of his 1 enemies on all occasions. But the day Tor 'heir deception is now over. Baltimore. [Correspondene# of the Herald. J Battimobc, June 1, ISci. An Abufuatvdation. Ma. Editob :?
