Money in this country continues abundant, a id the weather favort.'ole, so that the existence of a large stock of cotton has probably already produced its effect, particularly as it is not to be forgotten that the accumulation here occurs much earlier in the year tliau usual, and will attain its maximum many weeks before the ordinary period.

Latest from Panama.?We have received by lite way of Kingston, Ja., advices from Panama to the 12th of April. Generul Flores remained President of the Equator, and would remain so another year, when Uocafuerte is expected to come in, he being for peace. The military of the Equutor are said to be hot for a revolution, or the invasion of Peru. They are anxious to divide the spoils. Doctor Leon, the Peruvian Minister, had become indignant at an expedition having sailed from Guayaquil for Peru, consisting of about 200 men. He protested, and demanded his passsport, which was granted. This looks like war be t ween the two nations. Some sixty or an hundred troops from Guayaquil had landed at Tumbes, in Peru, for the ( purpose of proclaiming either Ooneral Orbogoso, or General Vivanco. General Mo rax an had left Guayaquil for Central America, it is said, on a revolutionary expedition. Congress met on the 1st March at Bogota, but no accounts of their proceedings had reached Panama at the time our corresponpcnt wrote. We leant that the Pacific Steam Navigation Company was getting on well. The Company's steamer Chili arrived at Panama early in April.

TIic intelligence given in this day's paper, brought by the Columbia to Boston last Thursday, is deeply interesting, in several points of view. A full account will be found in another column. The heart-rending conflagration of Hamburg is accompanied by a plan of the burnt district, which will give a correct idea to the reader of the extent of this most awful destruction. The ravages committed by this fire far exceed anything that has taken place in modern times. The loss by the conflagration of New-York in 1835 was estimated at $20,OIK),000?that of Hamburg at three times as much, $60,(MX),000. Collections and subscriptions were made over all Europe for the sufferers ; and lust night a numerous und enthusiastic meeting was held in this city at Delmonico's, and a large amount subscribed for. This is generous. The intelligence from Paris is also heart-rending Such a railroad accident far exceeds anything that ever took place in this country. The railroads in France are generally very badly conducted. What a singular medley of news we have in one day. The conflagration of Hamburg?the railroad destruction in Paris?and the grand bal matyvi of Queen Victoria?death, destruction, and dancing, all in one breath. Such are the chequered scenes of human life ! Go to church to-morrow and pray.

About six cried out ' No." One dapper little man asked if John Jacob Vstor was not Deutchl The Secretary replied, ' Yaw, John Jacob Astor's Peutch."

A joint resolution was re|iorted in the Senate this morning, ceding the interest of tlie United States in the Ch pMtia.tr. ..a ma. n i .. >i... ut.i. ?i I .rviwVV ttUU V1UU iu U1V CIUH VI Maryland and (lie cities of Washington, George town, and Alexandria, on certain condition?. The cost ol this stock to the Government was two millions and a half. There was a subscription originally ol one million suhs-queiiily the governm nl paid a million for the city of Washington, and a quarter of a million for euch oi the cities of Georgetown and Alexandria, and took that amount ol stock. Now these cities and Maryland ask Congress to relinquish the proprietory interest of the Government in their behalf. The subject was before Congress at a previous session, but the resolution did not pa?3. The stock is of very little value now, however, and yields nothing to the Government. Under these circumstances, and with the probability that if the grant is made, the canal will be completed, aad eventually become valuable, perhaps Congress may grant the application. The other bill for the relief of Barclay tfc Livingston, was passed. The remainder of the morning business was of no public interest. The apportionment bill was taken up, and Mr. Crittenden is in the midst sf a speech in favor of the districting proposition. It had been determined to sit the bill out yesterday, but this provision involves principles and consequences so importsnt,that the discussion is necessarily protracted. That the letter of the constitution confers upon Congress the power of regulating the mode of choosing members, seems to be generally admitted, but that power has never been exercised, and it may well be questioned whether, at this late day, it is expedient for the national legislature to assume it. Why attempt to control the State legislatures in the matterl No evil has ever yet been experienced from entrusting it to the States, and it can hardly be wise to ..I ?n ? filet lion otii.ai.n nr/i?lr.i/1 n.nil P.n.1 UiiailgV a By Otvtii uiav nuouinatn r? vmvu " vu. ?-*vu. Washington once vetoed an apportionment bill, because it contained an objectionable provision, and may not President Tyler feel constrained to adopt the same course 1 The movement is prompted by whig politicians, in the expectation of securing a few representatives in the next Congress. Possibly such a result might ensue, but is it worth while to deprive the States of the control of their own internal affairs in the hope of electing two whig representatives in the city of New York, one in Cincinnati, and possibly half a dozen others in different ports of the country, at the risk of alienating the feelings of the people from the representative body of the nation 1 It is impossible to shut our eyes to the fact, that the adoption of this provision might be followed by very serious consequences I Suppose a State should refuss or omit to comply with the requisition of the law?New York, for instance?and the House should prohibit her members from taking their seats. Would the State suffer their exclusion in silence 1 Every legislative body has the inherent right to judge of the qualifications of its members, and thispoweris expressly given to Congress by the constitution; but under such a state of things the question would arise whether such omission or refusal vitiated the election. Looking at the matter in this point of view, it can hardly be doubted that the possible evils growing out of the assumption of this power of Congress. must greatly overbalance all advantages contemplated by its exercise. Not one sound or statesmanlike argument has yet been adduced in support of the proposition. The shallow sophistry with whichtit was attempted to be sustained, was all exposed and dispersed by the luminous speech of Mr. Wright. The ground taken by him was impregnable. and hardly a decent effort was made to answer his objections. The vote will be a very close one. The Democrats will go against it to a man; but the Whigs have endeavored to make it a parly question, ana prooaDiy win succeea. The House is engaged to-day upon the business of the District of Columbia. Mr. Underwood, the chairman of the Committee of the District, a most amiable and estimable man, has devoted himself with great assiduity to the matters with which the committee has been charged, and every thing goes on smoothly and well. The inhabitants of the District go upon the principle of asking for every thing, and in this way tneyget more privileges ana favors than if they were troubled with a gTeateramount of modesty. Frequently their requests are deemed unreasonable, ana receive no countenance, but Congress is generally sufficiently liberal. In the morning, Mr. W. "B. Campbell of Tennessee, moved a resolution that the Congress will ad ourn on the 11th of July, but Mr. Underwood said he must object to every thing that would interfere with the District business. About half a score of witnesses have arrived to testify in the case of the furniture for the New York Custom House. The Committee is an excellent one, and the investigation, while it is risid and thorough, will be perfectly impartial No honest man has anj thing to apprehend. Rogues only tremble at 6cvere scrutiny. No allegations are understood to have been made against Mr Curtis in this matter, but great wrong is charged to have been practised by somebody, and there must have been a vast deal of caution exercised if the roguery is not disclosed, and the perpetrators held up to public condemnation. The election of Mr. Mangum as President pro tern, of the Senate, is a strange affair, when all the circumstances are taken into consideration. Mr. Mangum has no aptitude for the duties of the office ?no experience?no qualifications except self-possession and a certain promptness of manner?why then was he selected t Simplv because he was known to be more bitterly hostile to the President? more outrageously violent in nis opposition 10 me administration, than any other man in Congress.? And yet all those Senator? who have been professing friendship to the President voted for him, except Mr. Merrick, who lacking in resolution to vote for or against the caucus candidate, ran away.? This is a topic lruitt-.il of remark?for the present, however, it is enough to repeat what was said by Col. Sevier, in his place the other day, that the President has not one political friend or supporter on the whig side of the Senate. Washington, Thursday evening. Congnnloasl Proceedings?Mr. Adorns. The Senate have adjourned without taking the vote on the districting proposition in the Apportionment Bill. The whigs seem to misunderstand, or wilfully misrepresent the obvious intention of the powers of the constitution, in conferring upon Congress the authority of regulating the mode of electing its members. It is a dormant power, designed to be used in extreme cases only, as, for instance, where a State should omit or reluse to provide for an election. Its assumption now may be fraught with the most pernicious consequences, and it is be hoped that the provision inserted by the House may be stricken out. There was a small flare-up in the House while a bill to emend the charter of the city ot Alexandria was under discussion. Mr. Adams moved to strike out the word whitt, thus giving to free blacks the right to vote. Mr. Adams accompanied the motion with a characteristic speech, caloulated to irritate every inan from a slave State. Mr. < '?et Johnson commenced a suitable reply, but be was promptly called to order. Certain gentlemen in the House are always ready to encouruge Mr. Adams in his vitii|>eri?tion of the south, but when any man offers to reply, he is interrupted at once. The great age of .Mr. Adams. his eminent sen'ices ana e.xiraorainary acquirements and experience, have hitherto furnished a sort of immunity from animadversion and censure. lie has presumed upon this, and is now the worst tempered and the worst mannered man in the 1 louse. In collisions of any kind he generally gains nn advantage, because the sympathy of the House is wiih him, and he has the tact always to have the la-d word. But there are several men in the body who are more than a match for him in a clear field, with no favor shown His powers of sarcasm are great, and his resources immense, but there are joints in his harness through which he might be pierced to the quick. The manifold tergiversations which have characterized his career.his treachery to his ancient friends and allies, the federalists, a-d his cruel slanders, which they repelled so forcibly in I82R, might he thrown up to Iiirn with a withering effect, lie and lus friends will take care, however, that no njiportunity is presented for meting out to him his own measure. He spares no man in his nugcr, hut has never the magnanimity to stand the retort ol those he nssails. Philadelphia. [CoiTMpomJrntf of the Herald.] PHiLAMti.niiA, June 3, 1K42.

The facts on which this case rests before the Assembly arc briefly these : Archibald McQueen was pastor >1' the* Lemon Hill church uturliwl tn H>? r Fayettevlle, North Carolina, and cu the 23d of October, >10. hi- took iiu bis wife, Mary MrClt-ud, the sister uf the lee eased w The 1'rc.sby terv of Fayettcville, conceiving this to he contrary to the law of l?od, cited Mr. McQueen he-tore them, and alter an argument, the facts bei- 4 lulmitted, they decided that the act was incest, and proceeded to depose the accused from the Gospel ministry, lioth, as they allege, in their judgment, for the reformation of the otlender, and in order to purgethe church from such a <o andal. From this judgment Mr. McQueen ap. pealed to this General Assembly. The appellunt in the case was heard bv the Rev. Dr. Krelr, w ho made a most able as w el 1 aa ingenious speech, 1 uniting through part of two davs. The following are the l>oiuti which he laid down as the base of hie argument on the first day. Ho aaid, 1st : We have a right to consider the question not solely- with reference to the confession of faith, but with reference to the enactments of the Bible. 2d : We must not let the opinions of early reformer* nor the opinions and feelings of good Christians, nor the arguments resulting from what may be supposed to he the domestic policy, have any influence upon the court in the decision about to be given. On the second day his argument was aimed to illustrate the four following points : First?The judgment of the Presbytery is founded on a dubious and uncertain statute, to wit: a clause in the Confession of Keith which says that " a man may not marryany of his wife's kindred nearer in blood than he may of his own ; nor a woman of her husband's kindred nearer in blood than she may of her own." Second?We arc the accused party, and it is the duty of the prosecutors to make out tho low of the case so clearly as to leave no doubt #f our guilt. Third?He should endeavor to ahow that there was no law in the Bible which prohibits the act for which McQueen has been arranged, and Fourth, and last?That the punishment inflicted is too severe, and henrs no iimnortion to lk? nS-?? 1r _?r x g ? ? ~ VMWMVW, II UUCI1V.U It lie. Dr. Krebi supported these point* iu a speech of great ingenuity and power, which occupied the attention of the house for about two hour*. After Dr. Kreb* had concluded, it wat, on motion, entered upon the minute* that the partic* in thi* case'hed been fully heard. The Moderator then announced that any member of the inferior Judicature might now explain the grouud* of the decision, upon which the Rev. Dr. Mclvcr, of the Preabytery appealed from, arose and (poke to the question. He commenced by paying an eloquent tributo to the virtue* of the appellant, but h* denounced the act for which he had been condemned as incent, and painted lu glowing color* the enormities which, in hi* opinion, must nsue, if the act be not rebuked. He relied chiefly upon the article in the Confession of Faith, before alluded to, which, he contended, was supported by necessary implication from the language of the Bible, and was sanctioned by the uniform practice of the church. After he hod concluded, the roll was called for the members to make such remarks a* to them should seem proper. Several arguments were given for and against the appeal, by the members when their names were called, bnt before the roll had been finished, the Assembly adjourned. The mate of theahip Swaters was thi* morning mulcted in damage* to the amount of $20, and $15 coats, for an assault and battery committed at sea, upon a seaman.

The Committee appointed at the abova meeting beg leave to make an earnest appeal, not only to their countrymen, but to all their fellow-citizens, for prompt and liberal assistance, to alleviate the distress to which nearly 10,000 of the poorer classes of the inhabitants of Hamburg nave been reduced by a most awful conflagration, which in four days has laid waste more than one-fifth of the most populous part of the city. Donations will be received by any of the members of the committee, and the amount will be handed over to F. W. ichmidt Esq., Consul for, Hamburg, to be by him remitted to the proper authorities. A CARD.?Whereas, I find that some scurrilous remarks have been made by a Mr. Washburn, who imposed upon me by passing otf a child generally thought to nc irora ten to tnirtcen years or age lor twenty-one, and having announced him ns such, trusting to another's discription of him, the receipts of this institution hare been materially injured, at nothing which deceives the public will answer for this refined place of resort. Mr. Washburn has broken his first and second engagement with me, and after all this, he was paid from our treasury over forty dollars. I have long been knowh by hose who seek amnsemument throughout the United States, and if I have not always been able to pay my debts, it has boon for the want of means, and not from a lack of honesty. I am not indebted to Mr. Washburn and could have prosecuted him for a breach of engagement and for a libel had 1 been disposed to punish him for his conduct towards me, and the institution under tny control. 1 am the public's most obedient and very humble servant, O.

J. flf?-THE OWERS OF THE STEAMBOATS WATER Witch and Cinderella, nre about to alter the time of departure of those boats from New York and Elizabeth Port. This ia done at the instigation of parties interested iu the New Brighton bubble and speculation, and it hits produced much excitement in the neighborhood of Port Richmond and Elizabethtown, as many persona reside near thoie placea who arc employed in Banks and other companies in this city. At present the boats leave the city at 3, 4 and 6 o'clock, P. M., hours that suit She person's that take passage by them the year round. But to place the New Brighton Summer Birds, the times ot leaving the city are to be altered to 9, and 6$, thus those who have generally gone by the 4 o'clock boat in time to apend uic unci 110011 wnn ineir lamiues, will now lie detained till half after 6 o'clock, unleaa they can leave their business at or before 3 o'clock to get to the boat by a quarter after, and which very few of them will have it in their power to do. It is to be hoped that such conduct will meet with its proper reward he starting of an opposition line, which would be welcomed by Post Richmond tan Eliiabethtowis.
