The transactions in Wheat at this day's market, which sv >re chiefly confined to retail purchases, were altogether to a very moderate amount, and although in a few cases 'he finest descriptions rather exceeded the rates of this day s<j*nnight, the various kinds of Meditterranean and other middling Wheats wore generally obtainable on somewhat lower term'. English and Irish Flour was in limitud request, at lato price*, while Sto'os and Canadian received Is per bbl.

The Oat trade being languid, prices gave way Id per 15 lb-,; and Oatmeal, altnougn held at last week's rates, was very unsaleable to-day. Liverpool Cotto.n Market, Friday Evening, 13th May, ldti.?There ha* bee i more quietness prevailing in the market during the week, and more cotton offering tli i for some time past by reason of the late large arrivals, and this has caused prices to give way Jd. per lb., especial!' in the middling and lower qualities, of which the late import is chiefly composed. The a Ivices from the interior a-e, however, rather more favorable, and had it not been for till'calamity which has befall n Hamburg, which nec-'s-arily generates a feeling of I rm for the stability of p 'rtii ? there, trade scented as if it had assumed 'a more | eh" ring aspect, the demand for Ind a particularly having Icrablv revived. The acrou rs as to the crop of 1 cot'on in the States continue as bd'ire, and leave little i do lh liut that it will he a very moderate one. Money in ' this country continues abundant, a id the weather favor- ' i.lde, so that the existence of a large stork of cotton has 1 probably already produced its effect, particularly as it is not to be forgotten that the accumulation here occurs much earlier in tho } ear than usual, nnd will attain its I maximum many weeks before the ordinary period. Bra- , 7lis remain without change. Egyptians are offered rather pressinglr, and without finding buyers, except for small inutilities. Surats are also very generally on sale, arid lor all qualities, holders are disposed to meet the de- I mand. . The sales of the week, (with 4000 hales to-day, and an nuohangod market) amount to '30,180 bags, including POO 1 American and 150 Surat on speculation, and MOO American, an I too Surat for export.

Latest from Panama.?We have received by the way of Kingston, Ju., advices from Panama to ihe 12th of April. General Horot remained President of the Equator, and would remain so another year, when llocafuerte is expected to come in, he being for peace. The military of the Equ.itor are said to he hot for a revolution, or the invasion of Peru. They are anxious to divide the *)>oils. Doctor Leon, the Peruvian Minister, hail become indignant at an expedition having sailed from Guayaquil for Peru, consisting of aliout 300 men. lie protested, and demanded his passsport, which was granted. This looks like war be rween the two nations. Some sixty or an hundred troops from Guayaquil had landed at Titmhes, in Peru, for the purpose of proclaiming either General Orbegoso, or General Vivanco. General Morazan had left Guayaquil for Central America, it is said, on a revolutionary expedition. Congress met on the 1st March at Bogota, hut no accounts of their proceedings had reached Panama at the time our corresponpent wrote. We learn that the Pacific Steam Navigation Company was getting on well. The Company's steamer Chili arrived ut Panama early in April.

Before Judge Kent. June 3?Henry K. Ketchnm vs. Itaar Carpenter.?This was an action of "replevin. The defendant owns the estate 75 and 77 Allen street, the first being a livery stable, and 'he other n dwelling. In 1H39 the stanlc was let to Cornelius S. (iriffin, on a lease for ten years, at $10tt0 per annum, and the dwelling from year to year at a small sum. i Previous to the year 1N37 the stable had been occupied hy Messrs. Sloan, hut their stock of horses, carriages, kc. fell into the hands of Mr. Carpenter, and were bought Mr. Griffin and Mr. Heath, for $3700, $3000 ol which vas seemed by a mortgage on property belonging to Griffin in Dcuhrosses strert, which mortgage Mr. Carpenter still holds and receives the rents. In June, Iti41, Mr. Griffin had become considerably in arrreart for rent, and told Mr. Carpenter he must buy his stock and nay himself the best way he could, there being then, as Mr. r. averred, over $1100 due. Mr. C. declined this, and the establishment was sold to plaintiff as he contends,whs aid the landlord, for some time, $.15 a week on account of Griffin. Mr. Ketrhum, in October last, sold to Mr. Sloan, who removed the horses, carriages, and other property, to I J.I Cranil street. Throe days afterwards they were mired hy Mr. Thomas Carpenter, of Henry street, aa agent lor his brother, (who lives in Westchester county,) an account of rent due by Griffin, but replevined by plainer. the stock appraised at $1373. and suit now brought to lost the right of distress under the landlord's w arrant.?

Cunard's steamships must come here. The Foreign K?wi. Tiic intelligence given in this day's paper, brouglit 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 mo6t 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,(NX),000?that of Hamburg at three times as much, #60,000,000. Collections and subscriptions were made over all Europe for the sufferers; and last 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 matqui of Queen Victoria?death, destruction, and dancing, all in one breath. Such are the chequered scenes of human life ! Co to church to-morrow and pray. The Atlantic Steamers.?Necessity ?p some Change in their Tactics.?The Columbia steamer brought very few passengers to Boston?not enough to pay for the coals. These beautiful steamers are losing all their passengers?and why 1 Because they do not run be tween (he proper central points of travel. The New York packets, including also the Great Western and British Queen, will certainly run these Boston steamers off the ocean, unless they change their point of arrival on this side. New York it the port they ought to come fto__not by any meant Bottom, which it a mere out port or otUport. New York is (he great centre of all travel and all mind?and all (bought, and all business. It is the Paris, the London, and the Liverpool of this continent. The Cunard line cannot prosper unless they come to New York. Will Mr. Cunard take this matter into his most serious consideration 1 Meeting; of German Merchants at Delmonlco'i Last Nlglit, In relation to the Great Fire at Hamburgh. A large and highly resectable meeting of German merchants was held last night at llelmonico's in order to concert measures for collecting money, iVc. to relieve the sufferers by the late dreadful fire at Hamburgh. We never saw a meeting where they understood so well what real business meant. They had but two officers, Mr. Schmidt, the Consul, Chairman, and Mr. Faber, Secretary. They talked but very little, and that little wat said in German. They passed a resolution appointing a Committee to collect subscriptions. There was some difference of opinion as to the number. Some proposed nine, some eleven, some thirteen, and one very handsome man in white pants, said that a commit tec ot til teen would look better than a committee ot thirteen. The Chairman at last put the question, Shall the committee consist of twenty-one 1 About a dozen cried out " Yaw." About six cried out " No." One dapper little man asked if John Jacob Astor was not Deutchl The Secretary replied, "Yaw, John Jacob Astor's Deutch." It was proposed to put him on the Committee, but this was not done. The following arc named for the Committee Theod. Victor, K. 8. Schlesinger, J. 0. Kleudgeu, Fred. Schuchardt, Theod. De* Art*, C. H. F- Moring, E. Burckle, Dr. Hcnichel, C. G. Oimther, 0. F. Uleim, Ouitavui Oppenheim, J. F. A. Bachau, L. H. Meyer, Ferd Karck, Geo. Christ, Alex. Soltan, C. II. Sand, (imtavusA. Meyer, C. L. Motz, Dr. Weiismann, Dr. Geshadt. There was some little trouble in getting the names on the Committee?a great number had a little to say?a very little?and two or three would be talking at once; but all in good humor and harmony and so the meeting broke up. It was one of the most quiet, orderly, and respectable meetings we ever saw in this city or elsewhere. And every man present seemed desirous not to promote his own views, but merely sach measures as would secure the object they have in view?the relief of the sufferers at Hamburgh. The committee is one of the most resectable and unexceptionable that could have been selected.

We give all the facts we have, and wait for the explosion [From the Providence Journal, June J?r. M. It ii apparent that the leaders of the late insurrection have by no means relinquished their treasonable designs. Meetings have been held lately in Dcitu.ite and Chepachet. Last Wednesday there was a meeting of them at the Ceotre Falls, in Woonsocket. It was pretty numerously attended. anJ, among others, by several of those who have publicly renounced all forcible attempts to enforce the spurious government. The fellow calling himself D'Wolf, who was in the intrenchment on the night of the Hth. was there ; several from this city, Massachusetts and Connecticut, were alto there. Our correspondent, informs us that he is satisfied that some serious movement is intended, but hew many are in the socret, or what is the extent of their placet, is not known. Thoy have so far changed their mode of operation at to conduct every thing witli the utmost ttensy, and the men U|>on whoin tliev immediately rely for the' execution of their designs arc ai much in the dark as the public. A lot of land had keen hired for an encampment in Smithflcld. about a mile from Woonsocket, at a place called the Daily Hole, near the Friends' Meeting House. The place was to be forfeited. About thirty or forty armed inrn were there last Wednesday, and arrange, meats were made for a supply of food for about that uumber of men. Their officers were drilled on Wednesday. It is understood that since these arrangements were made, the place ol the encampment has been changed to Che packet, or another encampment is to be held Ihere There are rumors that arms have passed through the city for the uie of the insurgents, but we can trace them to no responsible source. That the government will stippreat this hostile demonstration the moment that it assumes a tangible shape, and that it will visit with just andsc\ere punishment those who are getting it up, is a matter of course; to doubt it would be to suspect the men at the head of affairs of both ignorance and iinheettity, neither of which have they manifested in any part of their conduct.

A joint resolution was retried in the Senate themorning, ceding the interest of tlie United States in the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal to the State of \farvl 111H nn#l tliA mtiM ?r Vl'adiin.tnn ( town, and Alexandria, on certain condition?. The coat ot this stock to the Government was two millions and a half. There was a subscription originally of one million?subsequently the goverum ul paid a million for the city of Washington, and u quarter of a million for each of the cities of Georgetown and Alexandria, and took iliat amount ol stock. Xow 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 pass. 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, and eventually become valuable, perhaps Congress may grant the application. The other bill for the relief of Barclay & Livingston, was passed. The remainder of the morning business was of no public interest. The apportion inent bill was taken up, und 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 important,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 nntional 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 change a system that has always worked well. Gen. 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 |>oliticians, 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 parts of the country, at the risk of alienating the feelings of the people from the representative body of the nation 1 It i9 impossible to shut our eyes to the fact, that the adoption of this provision might be followed by very serious consequences 1 Suppose a State should refuse 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 sucn a state of things the question would arise whether such omission or refusal vitiated the ejection. 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 which|it 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 eflbrt 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 party question, and probably will succeed. 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 they get more privileges and favors 'han if they were troubled with a greateramount of modesty. Frequently their requests are deemed unreasonable, and 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 adourn 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 rpctifv ir? flip poop nf thp furniture fnr thp Npw Vnrli Custom House. The Committee is an excellent one, and the investigation, while it is rigid and thorough, will be perfectly impartial No honest man has anj thing to apprehend. Rogues only tremble at s-vere scrutiny. No allegations are understood to have been made against Mr Curtis in this matter, but great wrong is churged 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 fern, 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 Simply because he was known to be more bitterly hostile to the President? more outrageously violent in his opposition to the administration, than any other man in Congress.? And yet all those Senators 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 candidute, ran away.? This is a topic fruitful 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. ?? Aani.^uiu.i) iiiuioua; vfvuuig. Congressional Proceedings?Mr. Adams. 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 refuse 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 he stricken out. There was a small flare-up in the House while a bill to emend the charter of the city of Alexandria was under discussion. Mr. Adams moved to strike out the word uAi'tr, thus giving to free blacks the right to vote. Mr. Adams accompanied the motion with a characteristic speech, caloulated to irritate every man from a slave State. Mr. Cost Johnson i commenced a suitable reply, but be was promptly ' called to order. Certain gentlemen in the House I are always ready to encourage Mr. Adams in his vi- ( tuperation of the south, but when any man offers to , reply, he is interrupted at once. The great age of Mr. Adams, his eminent services and extraordinary acquirements and experience, have hitherto furnished a sort of immunity from animadversion and cen- i sure. He has presumed upon this, and is now the worst tempered and the worst mannered 1 man in the llouse. In collisions of any kind he generally gains an advantage, because the sympathy of the House is with nim, and he has , the tact always to have the last word. Hut there , urn several men in the body who are more than a i match for him in a clear field, with no favor shown. His powers of sarcasm are great, and his resources I immense, but there are joints in his harness through 1 which he might be pierced to the quick. The ma- ' nifold tergiversations which have characterized his career,his treachery to his ancient friends and ulliee, the federalists, atd his cruel slanders, which they repelled so forcibly in 1828, might he thrown up to him with a withering effect. He and his friends , will ink* car*, however, that no o|>(N>rtunity is pre- , -tented for meting out to him hi? own measure.

The facta on which thin case raati before tha A?-embly are biicily these : Archibald McQueen was pastor of the Lemon Iiill church, attached to the I'reebvterv of Fayettevlle, North Carolina, and ou the 33d of October, ItMO.hetook as his wife, Mary McCloud, the sister of the deceased wife. The Presby terv of Fayetteville, conceiving this to be contrarv to the law of God, cited Mr. McQueen before them, anil after an argument, the facts bei> g admitted, they decided that the act was incest, and proceeded to depose the accused from the Gospel ministry, I>oth, as ihey allege, in their judgmont, for the reformation of the offender, and in order to purge the church from such a ft andnl. From this judgment Mr. McQueen appeiled to this General Assembly. The appellant in the case was heard bv the Rev. Dr. Krel s, vi ho made a most able as wall as ingenious speech, i uniting through part of two davs. The following are the points which he laid down aa the baae of hia argument on the tirst day. flu said, 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. 3d : We must not let the opiuions of early reformers nor the opinions and feelings of good Christians, nor the arguments resulting from what may be supposed to be the domestic policy, have any influence upon the court in the decision about to lie 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 Faith which says that " a man may not marry any of his wife's kindred nearer in blood than he mey of his own ; nor a woman of her husband's kindred nearer in blood than she may of her own." Second?Wc arc the accused party, and it is the duty of the prosecutors to make out the low of the case to clearly as to leave no doubt efour guilt. Third?He should endeavor to show that there was no law in thu Bible which prohibits the act for which McQueen has been arranged, and Fourth, and lost?That the punishment inflicted is too severe, and bears no proportion to the oflence, if olfenco it lie. Dr. Krebs supported these points in a speech of great ingeuuity and power, which occupied the attention of the house for about two hours. Afler Dr. Krebs had concluded, it was, on motion, entered upou the minutes that the parties in this case hail been fully heard. The Moderalor then announced that any member of the inferior Judicature might now explain the grounds of the decision, upon which the Rev. Dr. Mclver, of the Presbytery appealed from, arose and spoke to the question. He commenced by paying an eloquent tributo to the virtues of the appellant, but he denounced the act for which he had been condemned as incest, and painted In glowing colors the enormities which, In his opinion, must i-nsue, if the act be not rebuked- He relied chlcflv upou the article in tho Confession of Faith, before alluded to, which, he contended, was supported by necessary implication from the language of the Bible, and was sauctioned by the uniform practice of the church. After he had concluded, the roll was called for the members to make such remarks as to them should seem proper. Several argument! were given for and against the appeal, by the members when their names were called, tint before the roll had been finished, the Assembly adjourned.
