All orders addressed to the London agency will he attended to hy ui. Ewi.tsu AovKaTiMt.uR.vrs, Jcc.?In another column will be found nn advertisement sent to us hv the famous house of Rowland & Sou of London, and received by the Great Western steamer. The New \ork Herald was selected for this service, in consequence of its " standing highest in the scale for circulation, popularity. Sec. in the United States." it will be srentrom Has singular and striMne ihci, tliat the position, circulation, und the popularity ol the llcrald are justly understood throughout the world. Being now completely organised oil a permanent looting?occupying a splendid building, with every convenience of extensive staam machinery Hnd arrangement?and located in the hem business c*ntre in New York, it will be our own fault if we cannot mike the New York Herald the ieudingjournal of this continent?the great reservoir of news from every country?and the principal chvvml for business advertisenientH for the two worlds Ii; this country and in Europe, the magnitude and comprehensiveness of our circulation if beyond any other paper in existence. Thus we go. Our K<-latloi?N with Riigland?Slntr of the Country. All our foreign and domestic affairs at the present time appear to bo going on prospering and to prosper. It is highly probable that our relations with l'neland will noon be on the moat friendly and desirabltooting. It appears from certain circumstances that the negotiations which Lord A?hburton was ape dully deputed to effect, are likely soon to have a fuvorable termination. What has precisely been done in the premises it is impossible to say exactly : but it will be remembered that Lord Ashburton htw>.'l the Imiw lie has occuoied. of Mr. St. Claii Clarke, for three month", with the privilege of renewing it fot another three months ; the time hanearly expired, and no renewal has been asked lor. This is onr of ihe favorable circumstances indica ting a speedy settlement. Another is that the Warspite which had been ordered here to wait for his Lordship has arrived in our harbor, and holds herself in readiness to cany honie the minister at any hour. From these and other circumstances there cuu he but little doubt that the negotiations will terminate most ""favorably, in n few weeks. The States of Maine and Massachusetts have appointed delegates to go on to Washington with full powers to treat for a final disposition of the Boundary Question, and tliir long talked of, troublesome affair, will doubtless he sot at rest for ever, during the present month,, Ti is difficult to say how it will be disposed of, but there is little doubt it will br settled on some equity prinriple. England will retain possession ol a large part of die Disputed Territory, and pay for it with some other territory, or the right to ihe free navigation of the St. John's, or the St. Lawrence, or in some oiher equitable manner, as all shall agree up:?n. The result of this question is looked on usn a matter ot more interest in Canada and Maine, than it is by either of the two General Governments. The canea of the Caroline and Creole ran he easily denied when once the Maine Boundary is disposed of. In regard to the Creole it is not likely that the British Government will admit the principle for which our authorities have held out, and we -hall have to concede that (mint. Because, at the time Great Britain paid u- the last compensation for slaves left at Bermuda, it was distinctly stated that .nder the laws about to come into operation, that wr.sthe last time she would ever recognize such n claim, and that declaration was to ho considered final Tha case f the Caroline is a mere bagatelle in h pecuniary point of view, anil a speedy and amicable adjustment of that question ran easily be effected. The questi en of the Rizht of Search wc consider as already settled ; the barking out of France from a participation in the treaty, has for some time at teai.t, set that whole matter at rest; and we ma< rest satisfied that the British will not even attempt to make nnv more seizures of our vessels on tin coast of Africa. The adjustment of the boundary in the Oregon Territory, ? e presume, will lie postponed to some distant day. In the present state of that region, it is not worth quarrelling about. In the neantime, several financiers have arrived hits from Kngland, who intend, alter all three variou question* are amicably r.iranged, to see i: they cannot induce some of those States who have rrpndiated ihsir debts, to take some measures towards a present or prospective liquidation of the < laim* which persons in F.ngland have against them. But although tha country is at present in a very prosperous rt.ite, our crops art- heavy, cotton and enrn . . :n i ml and I'VerV DrOHDCCt till'.K1 ?<'i'lllf Wright nr. J smiling, this will be a most difficult negotiation to effect. For the fact it, tlut sine# the ] Bankrupt Law Ilia come into operation, private I repudiation hot become no general, and so fashionable. that it is not likely the bankrupt .States will do anything towards retracing their steps. Already from 8,00!) to 10,000 person? have declared them-elves bankrupt?, and repudiated all their dehts; showing the tremendous reaction in the currency system, and every thing connected w ith the banking und financial operations of the country. What thrac fininciera exautly wish to nchieve, it is a little difficult to tell; hut this we can tell thrtn, for their special information, to start with, that the money which was obtained from England has all been s'l'tandered in idle speculations and extravagance, never to be recovered.

Yesterday was a day of great exattement in the financial and rascally circles of Wail street. The first explosion or modern financial earthquake, took place about ten o'clock in the morning, when it a as discovered that .Tames S. Seherinerhorn, who has been secretary of the Ocean Insurance Compan) tor n?M lir??l nrnv**r! n #!*? ?nlt?.r fn that ineti. tulion in the sum of upwards of one hundred thousand dollars. Upon being informed of the discovery he confessed the whole affair, and the manner in which he had succeeded in defrauding the institution of ihis large amount of money. Upwards of 800 false certificates of stock, we understand, have been issued as one of the means by which he has raised funds, besides false entries in the cash and bank books. These peculations, for such they ma> be considered in a general sens.', have extended over several years time, and originated in that curse that has ruined thousands?speculations in stocks. During the afternoon, Abraham Ogden, K?|., President of the Company, appeared at the Lower Police olfice, and entered a charge against Schermerhorn to the above effect, upon which he was immediately arrested by officer Met irath, and safely lodged in the Citv Prison. lie has a family and four children, who have heretofore lived in affluence, and we understand that he was about erecting a splendid mansion in the upper part of the eity as a private residence. 1 le attributes his conduct entirely to the rascalities of Wall street, and dabbling in stocks. The capital of the company is $390,000, and we understand that he has confessed that his defalcations would reach nearly $150,000. Axothp.?. Trick or a Financier.?The devil appeared to have broken loose yesterday, as no sooner had the above explosion become well known, than it was also ascertained that Garrett Van Dyne, the agpJ porter of the Long Island Hank, lmd been robbed, or his pocket picked of $24,000, in bank notes and checks, while proceeding from Wall street to Brooklyn. He had crossed the river, as usual, in the morning, to receive the exchanges from ihe Phenix Bank, in Wall street, and after enclosing the money in a package, returned to Brooklyn, and on arriving at the other side, found that his inside coat pocket had been torn open, and the money taken out. The notes were all of the Long Island Bank, and form about $10,000 of the whole amount. A suitable reward has been offered for the recovery of the money, or any portion of it, hut up to a lute hour last night, no one hud been caught who could be suspected. Mr. Van Dyne, the porter of the bank, is upwards of 80 years of age, and has been in that institution for many years. The officers of the bank have no suspicion that the money was appropriated by Mr. Van D. to his own use, as was reported yesterday, as all the circumstances attending the loss convey a different impression. There is no doubt that the rogues who committed the acthave watched the old gontleman for weeks, and fixed upon yesterday as the day to accompliRli their purpose. They had selected that day, in all probability supposing that the redemption of Saturday's business was more extensive than any other day in the week. Unfortunately for them, the money conveyed over wan the receipts of Fridny, and therefore the amount was some #10,000 less than it would have been had they selected this day for their operations. The lose to the bank will be about #10,000. The payment of the checks, that amount to about #14,000, has been stopped. The notes were from #1 to #1000 in denomination. These explosions will certainly lead to others, ns it rarely rains but it pours, and no one cnn doubt for an instant that if the truth was fully ascertained, Wnll street would present scene after srene of just such desolation and ruin us the one previously depicted. The Corporation.?This is as unsettled a? ever. Peter A. Cowdrey, Esq., left this city yesterday for Albany to make up the record in the recent mandamus case before the Supreme Court, in order to bring it before the Court of Errors at the easliesi day possible. Provided the whig side of the house consents, this will be done at once ; if not, there is no probability that the matter will be decided until the next session of the Court of Errors. The whigs are certainly wrong in this matter, as the Court of last resort is the only tribunal that can constitutionally and definitely decide the disputed points to the satisfaction of the whole community, as ngainst its decision neither party will have a right to murmur. The pettier! law of nppeals shows that the judgment given by the Supreme Court was the only one that could have been pronounced by them in view of a final adjudication of the matter by tinCourt of Errors, as had the decision been adverse to the wlug relators, they would have been concluded by it without the possibility of an appeal. This position is fully sustained by the fact that the books are full of cases showing that no appeal is ever allowed in mandamus eases on the motion of the relators. while on the other hand appeals moved hv the defendants are always allowed us a matter of course. It may be, and indeed is most probable, that the .Indies of the Supreme Court felt the delicacy of their position towards the relators, owing to this fact, and hence gave judgment in the only way cal ciliated to admit of the adjudication of the Court of Errors. In this view there is n good apology for the haste as well as the form in which the decision was given. St*am Sure British Qieen?IIer Dbpakit-rv To-Day.?His Belgian Majesty's steam ship "British Queen"?which, by the way, ought now to be called the " Belgian Queen"?under the command of Capt. M. M. Keane, surnatned the Popular, will sail this afternoon at two o'clock, for Antwerp, touching at Southampton, England. About fifty passengers go in her, amongst whom is Samuel Haight, Esq., the American Consul at Antwerp.? This speaks well for the Queen, for it shows a list of nearly twenty more passengers than went in the Aradia, which left Boston last Wednesday. The letter hags, both for England and the continent, will close it one o'clock preeisejy. at the Post office, at the office of Messrs. Mali, the agents. No. 11 Beaver street, at Harnden's, in Wall street, and at Gilpin's, in the Exchange. This steamship has began a new system, a new era in ocean steam navigation. Through the enterprise of King Leopold, of Belgium, a great chain of steam communication has b?en established between the two hetnispheies, which bids fair to outstrip all other inovenientsof the kind ever attempted. We expert important results from this undertaking, and have 110 doubt from the success so far, of the British Queen, that our expectation will be fully realized. Antwerp on the Scheldt is one of the greatest commercial marts of the old world, and its facilities for doing a laige trade, are not to be surpawed It must now become the grnnd fiitrrpot for the continent. The dreadful disaster to Hamburg will throw into its lap an immense amount of business-this steam line will increase its commerce two-fold by making it the Continental Commercial Depot?and the establishment of a line of sailing packets to run to this c.ty. now in contemplation, will give it nn ' >|Unl increase lo its already large trade. And in connection willi these, lines of railroad* varum* troin that city, as lint's now do from Boston, will give the New York of Belgium an advantage over every oilier city in Europe. And tins is merely a beginning. King Leopold is too fond of progresato slop here,he will follow up Ins success and place Antwerp, where she once was, us the chiel commercial city of continental Europe. PncsinEKTTAi.

Canada. The intelligence from this portion of the Britit-! Empire by the latt nihil, is by no means important The Governor General was in excellent health, an . so were the members of hie family- He ia evident ' ly becoming very popular with the loyal portion c the Canadian.*. Within the lust few months a very extensive enii gration has taken place front the United States to Canada, of [K-rsons natives of Great Britain, but who have resided for many years in the United State: Several thousands ot these individuals have reached Canada since the opening oi navigation. The subject of emigration is deemed one ot so much importance by Sir Charles Ragot, as to call 'from him u long document tr in which we make the following extract*:? I observe that the question of Ktnigration is engaging much attention in Knglnnd. and lias been pruned on th< notice of iter Majesty's Government from several influential quarters. 1 presume, however, that it would not he the intention of Her Majesty's Government to pay any part ol the passage of emigrants proceeding to this Province. The expense of such an arrangement would be very great, and 1 agree with Lord Sydenham in thinking that it would be neither necessary nor expedient. Bat the pluu propose.! by Lord John Russell, viz.: that the Government should pay the tax on emigrants as should come out undsr their auspices, appears to be lioth practical and judicious. The funds thus created, together with the proceeds of the tax on those who come out without Government assistance, with the annual grant for agency, will probably tutlicefor the emigration and quarantine expenses of the present year. But, if not, I anticipate no difficulty in obtaining any additional sum that may be required from the Legislature. Should the Imperial Parliament gruut any furthi r sum towards ('.migration, I would suggest the propriety of employing at least a portion of it us suggested by Lord Sydenham, in placing a Government agent, who should also act as medical attendant, on tioard each vessel con taining a large number of emigrate. Dining the past season great difficulty ?u found in pro curing employment for emigrant* who came here merely a* laborers,without any previoiu know ledge of agriculture or of any mechanical trade. Under ordinary circumstance thu demand for unskilled labor it exceedingly small, and. I should b? disposed to dissuade rather than uMcouruge tie* emigration of that class. But during the approaching season so many public works will, 1 trust, be in operation, that there can he no fear of a want of employment for all who are ublc to work. I have already devoted u great deal ol attention to this subject ; und assuming that the loan to he granted hv Oreat Britain will be raised at an early date, I expect that in the courae of the summer a considerable progress will be made in the Improvements of the St. Lawrence navigation hy the completion ol the Cornwall Canal; the commencement of a Cunal between Cotean-du-Lac and the Cascades ; the completion of the lock and dam at St. Anne's Rapids ; and the widening of the Lachine Canal. The improvements on the tVeliand Canal are ulready in progress, and those in Lake 8t. Peter and on the Bay of Chaleurs and Gosford lload w ill be commenced as soon as the season will permit. These, with the completion of the Montreal out] Quebec roads, and with the local improvements which ? ill be provided hy the several District Council*, will at sord all the emigrants who can he expected. It is probable also that some other of the public works, espeeiallv the erection of bridges on the main Province road, will be completed thi* year. The great hulk, however, of tho labor required on this work, will he skilled labor, that of carpenters principally, and masons. The emigration during the past year from thi* Province to the United States has been comparatively small; and there seems reason to believe that it has been balanced by the immigration from the United States. Tho?e who wen* from this were principally persons whose relations wen settled in the United States, and who, coming out to jofii them, had taken the route of the St. Lawrence, on account ot its superior cheapness. The " Montreal Herald" of June 2, publishes a highly interesting letter addressed t? Lord Ashbur ton on the growing and groat importance of the com and flour trade with England, by way of the River St. Lawrence. It appears that last year this trade amounted to $4,000,000. Fifteen hundred emigrants arrived in Montreal on the 1st and 2d days of June. The prospect for grain crops this year in Canada is unusually good. The Canadian papers all unite in abusing Captain Barclay's book ubout Canada. Thk Army in Canada.?On the 1st of June, Major-General Sir James A. Hope, attended by his son, Lieut. Hops, A.D. C., and Lieut. Colonel Dickson, A. A. G., inspected the 70th and 71st regiments, on the Champ de Mars. The inspection, especially of the latter ?orp?, was very minute, which went through a number of intricate evolutions, with tinprecision of which, us well as of those executed by the former regiment, the Major-General expressed his high satisfaction. On the ground, during the inspection, were a strong body of volunteers, from the67;h and 70th, to the 71st regiment: which will enable this gallant corps 'he arrival of the depot companies, to complete its complement of twelve hundred men, in as far as volunteering froiu regiments in the Province will admit of. Sir James McDonell embarks for England in the Douglas, which leaves Quebec in a few days. Sir .Tame? A. Hope, who has succeeded to the command held in this province by the gallant "hero of Hugoumont," intends to make Montreal his headquarters.

The Mexican Loan.?With regard to the precise terms of the late loan obtained by Santa Anna, the "GalvestonGazette" giving the following on what it calls good uutliority :? 1st. That the present hohlers of Mexican Bonds in England have been engaged in negotiations for the payment ol their debt and interest for several years, and that t he last arrangement was made in London through the house ofLizardi & Co. in November last, one of the terms of this arrangement being the appropriation of a largo portion ol the duties payable to tho Custom Houses nt V era Cruz anil Tampieo, which appropriations the terms of tho alleged Loan would render of no value. 3d. That Santa Anna assumed the Presidency in Oct. 1841, keeping in suspense the very form of the Government until the Constituent Assembly shall meet in June next, so that any Loan which he can make must boon his own personal security?on an assurance connected with atempory possession of power, and on a guarantee which no English capitalist would estimate at tho value of n far tiling3.1. That the reported Loan is on terms which would violate agreements made with France, Russia, and Spain, the goods of w hich countries arc by express treaties, admitted into Mexicooa the same terms with those of Eng land. Uh. That the \ iolation of public treaties?'he breach of faith with English creditors?the offtr of Santu Anna's private security, ami the suspension of tW,~ Constitution, are circumstances that preclude the possibility of a new Loan. 6. That the house of Morrison Sl Co., are well known not to hnfre ninde the Loan. A son of one of the partners is now hero, having arrived withiu less than a fortnight, nud s, ite? that no such Loan was contemplated by the house. There it* great opposition to Lien. Houston ; and in relation to hit opponents he thus writes to a friend:? The pica for all their opposition, is that the Executive will not disclose his plans, and say uhen the advance shall lie mate upon Mexico. That they may not have the gratification of the least success?although I do not regard it as an evl tence ol generalship?I will sny to our friends in the United States and to those who are fully prepared to emigrate, that 1 wish to see them at the rendezvous at Corpus Christl between the 90th and 9d'h July. This announcement is induced by lettnrj from the United States, and though by some it may be regarded ss injudicious, 1 can offer this assurance, that advantages sufficient ara undisclosed, in the manner of invasion, to insure the most perfect success, if the troops are subordinate to orders. Triumph cannot elude us, unless disorder prevail] in our ninUs. Emigrants and soldiern tire pouring into the country trorn all quarters. Eighty soldiers from St. Louie and sixty Irom .Mobile, arrive.I at Oalveaton in one day. The Houston >tar of the 21at of May, says:? It is now sbont a fortnight since the report was started that a body of hostile Mexicans had been seen near Bexar, and yet no definite intelligence respecting them has been received. No one, it appears, has seen them, and it is no'. known whether the force amount* to TOO or only a dozen. The roott definite intelligence received, amount* merely to thia, that two report* of cannon were heard at Bexar, in the direction of Caliivera'* rancho, on or nbout the 7th in*tnnt; on the mcceeding day two other report* were heard, and on the third dar four report* were diatinctiy heard.

The first i. the approaching nuptials of the young Emperor ot llrazil with the Princess Royal of Naples, sisff of Ferdinand 11., King of Naples, and that two frigates were ready to sail for the Brazils with tin Princess and suite, among whom is the Prince de Scilla. Minister of Foreign Affair*.

What other commerce lius hyntenial union may lead to, beside-! that of the distant parties immediately joined together, we don't pretend to suv. We further learn that the old Napolitan banker, Francis Falconnel, has been in London negotiating a loan for the young Eini>eror with the Barings, and is also about to sail for K io Janeiro, with the result of his mission ; so that, as usual, the British capitalists have also a finger in thit family pie. We believe we have already mentioned that the King of Naples has been desirous of making a railroad, now the royal passion of all Europe, from that city to Home. But we now learn from our correspondent, that his Holiness the l'ope has refused his assent to the project; so that Ferdinand II. can extend it only to C.iserta, n royal residence but twenty-four miles distant?a sad disappointment, 110 doubt; hut his Holiness probably thought that his faithful dominions required 110 greater supply of sul phur than his clergy could deal out to them in a spiritual or Pickwickian sense. And this is all of importance that we have to communicate from Naples at present. The News front R io Janeiro will, of course arrive in due time. Theatrical* In the United State*. The principal item of interest in the theatrical world, is the engagement of Mademoiselle Fanny Elssler at the I'ark Theatre. She commences at this theatre to-morrow evening, in the ballet of "Lh Soninambula." She has had a most brilliant time of it in Cuba this winter, where her attractions were as great as ever, and whence she sailed direct for this city. The l'rahams are out west, giving a series of brilliant concerts to crowded audiences on each occasion. They will be at the Falls and at th?* Springs this summer. Mrs. Sutton and Signor Nagel, after a very snecessful tour in the south, are now at Louisville, giving concerts to brilliant audiences. They intend this summer to visit Niagara, Toronto, Kingston, Montreal, Quebec. 3rc. Mr. and Mrs. Sloman are in Montreul. Forrest lias just closed ail engagement with Thome. Niblo opened a tew nights since, and has had bril iiant nouses every ntgnt. his attractions lor this summer are very great. Those old favorites, the Ravels, are with him. The Olympic closes a very successful season thi? evening. The new opera of the " Maid of Saxony," words by George P. Morris, Esq., music by Charles Horn, has had pretty fair success, considering all things.? We presume that it will he laid aside for the pre sent, or during Fanny Elseler's Engagement. We learn that Gen. Morris intends togo out to England, to superintend in person the production of this cj>e ra at Covent Garden. VmcHXiA SpRixas.?We hear of a number of our fashionables who are about raking their summer ! tripto the Virginia Springs, todrink of the white sulphur water, in that most romantic and delicious region of country. Large parties are also going f rom Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington. Mr. Bodeco and family, Russian Minister, and Mr. Surrys. Belgian Minister, are among those going from th>capital, und a number of members of Congress, with their ladies There willbe many pleasant flirtationin the beautiful groves of the White Sulphur thisummer, so many belles and heaus being on thei> way there. The White Sulphur is two days' joume\ from Washington, half railroad and half turnpike Expense for the trip from New York, thirty dollars. Arrival and Dki-aktukb.?Mr. Webster left here yesterday, for Washington, having just returned from an absence of a f*w weeks in the East, when he had gone partly on executive business connected with the Maine Boundary question and the Rhode Island matters, and partly lor recreation, and to arrange some private affairs. The Hon. Mr. Crittenden of the Senate, late Attorney General, is in the city for a few days. It must be pleasantly refreshing to our legislators at Washington, to run away for a week, from the dull monotony of the city, to snuff the breeze from the Battery, take a turn in Niblo's garden, und see Fanny Elssler dance. To those who are preparing speeches on the tariff in Congress, we would particularly recommend a visit to New York at this time. Erie Canal Packet Boats vs. The Ctlca nnri Schenectady Railroad Company. Two lines of packet boats are in successful opera tion between Utica and Schenectady. They have excellent accommodations and charge ?n 3ft or including meals. The boats come and go filled witii passengers.

They have compelled the Utica Company to do what others could not effect, viz:? to lower their fare?at least as far as the packet boats are concerned. The respective railroads between Albany nnd the tar west, have in vain endeavored to induce the Utica Company to unite in a general reduction?to receive fare through?to pm on baggage eirs?to accommodate travellers bv having apartments appropriated for the different citizens ana villages, and not to be opened until they urrive at their respective places of destination, which would be a great relief to the iravellcr ; but the lTtica Company have strenuously resisted all tins, and great complaints are made against them. It is alleged that many of the influential directors in the Utien Company, residing in Albany and Utica, are deeply interested in a line of boats from Syracuse to the lakes, and on this account oppose any arrangement with the other railroad companies. Our western brethren contemplate making a public expose of their grievances, and, if not remedied, to apply to the legislature for relief. It is amusjn to witness the contost between the runners and agents of the Utica Company and the boats, the former endeavoring to underbid ihc latter. The Utic i Company are now experiencing some of the inconveniences and annoyances which they have contributed to inflict on their neighbors. "Justice, though tardy, is sure." Spectator. ' The tendency ol every thing ii to improve."?Xnr York Herald, June 6. Mr. Bennett? The truth of this remaik of yours is undeniable. I live in quiet and simplicity some miles from the crowded portion of the rity. For some years 1 have heard no one speak one word in favor of out ol town lots; and much lew have 1 seen any one along the romantic fields that border the Second Avenue, enquiring the price of them. Within a few months, however, many pereons have strolled to my retreat upon such enquiry. Well, what of that? I'll tell you. In 1835 one of my neighbor* paid fittO per lot for 20 lota?the other day he sold eight of them for 401) per lot, and took the money. Let all who have many lota sell a few for what they can obtain for theni?extend aettlement, and add to the value el the remainder. Buyers have the erroneous ide. that people will not |?nrt with their lands for leas ilia; cost anil interest. Morrr Vernon.

The Senate is still engaged upon the apportionmeat bill. The morning business disposed of, Mr Buchanan called up the hi',! at ha!f-pa.-t twelve. Mr Morrehead took' the tloor in rapport of the districting proposition, and is still speaking. Mr. Berrien is tospeaii on Hie oilier side, and several ouier rsena tors are prepared to diseuss the question, as the dc bate may be continued tor several day*. Every body aeenia anxious to finish the bill, but the prin ciple involved is too important to be summarily set tied The districting proposition will probably prt vail, bo far as is ascertained, the Whig Senators, with the exceptiou of Messrs. Hives and Berrien, will vote in its favor. The Democruts will go unanimously against it, hut the Whigs have a maturity ol eight in full Senatej und very little doubt of its passage is now entertained. The Ilonse is discussing ihe propriety ol the eonduct of the Secretary of War. A call was made upon him for information in reference to some Indian negotiations, a hich ihe public interest could not permit him to communicate, and lie so replied, in substance, to the resolution of the House. The Whigb are indignant, and the affuirfhas been on the tains all day, so far. Without expressing any opinion upon this particular case, it may be staled that the legislative branch is striving daily to trench upon the executive. anil unless the President is resolute and decided in asserting and vindicating his prerogative, Congress will ride over him. Committees are ra ised to Took into subjects over which Congress has no jurisdiction, and resolutions are frequently adopted culling for information for which Congress has no right to ask?and al! this with no view to legislative action, but merelv to insult and embarrass the President. All this talk about the growing power and influence of the executive is rank nonsense. The tendency for years has been to encroachment on the part ot the legislature. The executive, by our republican theory, is a co-ordinate of the government, hui the whigs would make the President a mere ministerial officer, to authenticate such laws aa the two House mav pasu. 'flie day is excessively hot and sultry, with nothing stirring hut stagnation?a general dearth of news of all sorts. No detailed taiifl" bill can be passed at the present session, and the protection men are just opening their eyes to the fact. Jacobs' Montreal Express.?Early yesterday morning we received hy Jacobs' Express, Montreal pai>ers of Saturday. This line now runs twice n week from this city to Montreal and Quebec. Fashion and Finance in Wall street.?There was quite a stir in the street yesterday, occasioned by the appearance there of Lord John Hay, of the War spite, and Messrs.

It will be seen, that in addition to Mr. Marble as Ham Patch, the Olympic company are to play a favorite farce, and Her; Urisbach, the lion tamer, with his tigers and other animals will appear. Thome has certainly a Renins for surprising the town with the richness and novel ty of his entertainment. City Intelligence, A Grand Military Parade will take place in tiiii city on Wednesday next, which will be attended by severa! companies from our neighboring river town*- I'rom present appearances, it will be the most extensive " turn out" tlinl has taken place for years.

The rooms occupied by the City Troop and Artillery, are r crfect models of order and beauty. The two Texian schooners of war that arrived here some two weeks since, are still here. Their officers are a fine set of fellows; such men us would apply a match to the magazine before they would strike their flag. Cent. Moore and Col. Washington are here. The sympathy for Texas here is almost unbounded. In proportion to size, Mobile has done more for that country than any other city in the United States.

The crops, which are very fine and promise well, are retarded in their growth by it. 1 noticed in the Herald of the Midi ult. a letter written at this place, which states that our poet master is neglectful in his office, being too much of a gentleman to attend to maitcrs himself, and leuviag every thing to the management of his clerks, in consequence of which the New Orleans mail has, on two occasions, been detained here?once for five days, and the other time for three days. This statement is a gross error against the post master, who takes as much interest in the business of his office, as anv other in the States. Aa regards the delav of the "Slew Orleans mail, if such was the case, it is 110 fault of his, as those mails arc never carried toliia office at all. They arrive at the railroad depot at three o'clock, and are immediately earned to the mail steamboat, which runs between this place and Wilmington, and which leaves here at tour o'clock. Our city is as quiet aa can be ; 110 business transacting, and no public amusements going on. We Chariestonians nave a dull time in summer.

[Corrtipondcuce of the Herald] Washington, Saturday evening. Congress?The Tariff?the Whigs and the President?New York Custom House. Tiie Senate debated the districting proposition is the apportionment bill until the adjournment,without taking a vote. The House rejected the motion of Mr. Johnson of Tennessee, which contained an implied censure of the Secretary of War. Mr. Adam* took strong grouud against the position of the Secretory, but the vindication of Mr. Cuehing was full and complete, and the house sustained the views of the latter gentleman. The army appropriation bill was taken up after the Secretary's letter was disposed of, and matters and tilings in general were talked about, until the members got sharp set for their dinners. The bill is to be taken out of committee on Monday, and then the tariff is to come up. The whole revenue question is to be sacrificed to the fanatical folly of the whig? about distribution. Thov will risk every thing of preserve the shadow, after the substance has eluded their grasp. The limitation clause in the distribution act, which suspend.? its operation when the duties exceed 20 per cent, is to be repealed at all hazards. Upon this the whigs will insist, with a certain knowledge that a revenue bill must fail with this feature, with the conviction that the popular sentiment is adverse to the distribution law. and w ith the fact starinz them in flic face that the uiiblic credit Cannot he resuscitated while the avails of tlie lunds are thus squandered. But there is one consolation. Their time is short. However capable and active for mischief now, their agency in public affair* ceases on the 4lh of Murch next, and if the democrats do not profit l?y their own experience, and the folly of the whigs, wc had better overturn the government and begin anew. The purpose of the President to make such removals as the public interest shall demand, whntevet may happen to be the |ioliticul predilections of the delinquent?whether he is n Oluv man, a Van Btiren man, a Webster man, or a Tyler man, has given mortal offence to the wliigs. Some of the more violent are beginning to talk about impeachment, but this istlie mere ebullition of Irantie rage. The idea is too absurd to be entertained bv any with brains enough to tell which way is from him. All this violence and abuse i? thrown away upon the President. Ilis determination is unnlternhle. He will remove any man, and every man, whose course shall be proven to have been such as to destroy confidence in his integrity and capacity, or who shall disregard the injunctions of the appointing power. Politicians in Congress or out need not hope to pro- j tert their partisans in office by threatening Mr. Tyler. Their past experience should teach them befter. The Committee of Investigation on the subject of the New York Custom House, are pursuing rheir labors with great dilligence. sitting daily frotn nine A. M. till sunset.
