Kills llerald-VHu At any hour at which the celebrated Vitto Mes??!?. on the s'reii Tariff Hill, may be received to-day, it will !> *, iu half an hour thereafter, published in an I xira Herald Iroin this office. It i* huppo.-ed that thin message will wind up the drama of the present session of the hard-cidei C 11;ri -< A great many of the politicians of botl i' rtu - will probably explode by spontaneous com hit-' >n. and ll scores of them would disappear, ani k-aw not a fragment behind, not even a bad debt u would be a happy riddance for this bewilderei and happy country. We trust also that the ultras will hold a meetinjj in thu Park as toon as the message is received it town?and it a grand row can be raised?and 8 -J-V^.uuiv . 8"i "" ,,,ut 11 l,,c l,rutl ,UI M1V character and civilization of the age. The Wal street prints are especially directed to have all tin worst and lowest epithets ready for use as soon a> possible. Captain Tyler is ready to take the showei bath in these warm days, as fast as they please. (ireat tiiii-s these for importers!?no revenue laws?no duties?no tarifl?no nothing. Every thing is free. Ha i, Mannkks? Hah Morals.?One of the most remarkable traits exhibited at the recent ward meetinns <>f the whigs in this city, is their excessively bitter language and bad manners. The vulgar and thoroughly blackguard language which they use towards the Chief Magistrate of their ow 11 country, gives one a very sorry opinion of their refinement, intelligence, or the progress of civilization. The most lamentable aspect of the day is the fact tliat such language and such manners, adopted publicly by a large and respectable party, will lead to a sad and deplorable decline in moral sentiment and moral principle. Hence the dishonesty, the impiety,'he cheating, the immorality which so much prevails among the educated and higher classes of society. Where is all this to end ? In some extraordinary convulsion of the social system. Whim Candidate for Governor.?The whigs at several of the ward meetings have openly expressed a wish to support Mr. Bradish a* the candidate for next < rovemor. We certainly have no objections. Mr. Bradish can run as elegantly as any man?and it he should be defeated by honest iron fisted Bouck, he would, with white kerchief in hand, make as graceful a bow, and receive the result as coolly as ever Mr. Van Buren treats a friend?or Major Noah turns a somerset?or Thurlow Weed lathered and shaved candidates to ottice, at sixpence a head, during the rcximr of Mr. Seward. Mr. Eradish is a marvellously proper man?and the only really, polite and gentlemanly politician that is extant in these latter days. Pennsylvania Riptoiation.?The "Courier," and other Wall street prints, shed tears over the repudiation of the State of Pennsylvania, and yet they are urging New York to the same fatal result, by crying out for more debt?more ex|>enditures? more internal improvements. Such is one of the strange inconsistencies of the miserable politiciansof the present day. We have now six western States, and one, if not two, Atlantic States declared bankrupt?unable to pay their interest?and yet there are men in Wall street, and round about the country, who would double the debt of New York, nnd produce a like bankruptcy in less than tour years. Go ahead," our withers are unwrung." Tire Navat, Cot'ttT Martial.?Yesterday, as appears by our report, the sentence of th^ Court was passed upon Passed Midshipman May. It amounted to this?" My boy, mama thinks you have been naughty, but here's a bit of sugar candy, so don't do so again." Really, really, the w hole investigation seems to be the most boyish aHair we ever remember to have heard of. How such war-worn veterans as Commodore Stewart can sit with their cocked hats, and hear through such petty quarrels without laughing, is past our philosophy. The whole Expedition seems to have acted towards each other like so many overgrown schoolboys, who had received a ereater supnlv of beef than of brains or Wir#*h Cu iw ano Cu r. Life.?The English fashion of Clu!> Life is getting into vogue in New York. We have already the Union Club, recently located in Broadway, opposite the Atheneum?the Novelty Cluti, composed of small paragraphia!* and discarded waiters, which meet in Park Row?the Corinthian Club, composed of literary men and some fools ?the Alcibiadcs C'lnb, which meets in Mercer street, composed of some men of fashion and fortune, some bloods and some blackguards?the Beefsteak Club, composed of old inveterate jokers. We are promised a list of the "cards" of these clubs,with the terms of eating, drinking, lodging, admission, expulsion, rioting, roystering, and all kinds of behaviour. The 1'nion, ihe Novelty and the Alcibiadcs, we have nlready?full lists, full |*>rtraits. They are rich. Paying the Piter at t.ast.?Joe lloxie has been appointed one of the smallest |*>ssihle of ward niHtice? uptown Winn a wandering minstrel grinds out a tune before your window, in a warm afternoon, a generous person generally tips him a sixpence. On the same principle the whigs have appointed Joe to an office?salary SUfcKI. We trust ilia! Justice Joe will hereafter quit all hard eider singing and other vanities?and (H-ddle justice with more success than he formerly peddled breeches ami pantaloons.

It is stated t!i a ihe work* of Mrs. Sigourntf, published by the Harpers, have ir-ver yet yielded any rr?fi' to tnir authoress. All the receipt? were swallowed up in paper and printing. Cooley's "American in l.gvpt" goes like wildfire?and,Park Benjamin'is almost ready to explode. Nav.au.?The broad pennant of Commodore li. P. Kennedy, recently appointed to the command of the 17.

The President of the United States intends to visit Newport, tor the benefit of the sea air and exercise, immediately after the adjournment of Congress. He will pans through this city as quietly as poeatbie. Possibly the wings will try all they can to insult the Chiel Magistrate on Ins way. By tact and perseverance, they may succeed in their purpose. Robert Tyler, the President's son, with Ins amiI able lady, is now at Fire Island, enjoying the sea breezes and sea bathing. Mrs. Tyler, who is connected with one of the most resectable families in this city, has been out of health of late, and the resort to the sea shore recommended by her physi( eians. A number of distinguished Canadians are in town, I among them the lion. Stuart Derbyshire, member of the Canadian Parliament. J. lioreely Palmer, Ksq., of London, the wellknown banker, is rusticating at the Pavillion, New firighton. Ex-Governor Dorr, of Rhode Inland, and his suite i of celebrated butenders, are in R ichmond, Virginia, , and are going to the Virginia Springs. I The elder and younger Braham are on their way from Lexington, Ky., to the Mountain Spring# of Tenne??ee and Virginia. Oi r Navy Ahhcaii, tec ? We have received letters by the way of Boston, from the U.|S. brigantine Boxer, Lieut. Commanding Oscar Bullus, confirming our previous report of her arrival at Trinidad de Cuba from l'ort Royal, Jamaica. It gives us pleasure to observe the unvarying res|?ect paid to our flag in the course of her cmise, and in particular, the courteous observance of the usual civilities by foreign pouters afloat. We allude more particularly in the present instance, to the ' Rritish frigate Volage, whose commander Sir Wm. I'ixon, deemed it no sacrifice of his dignity to pay the first 'compliment of a visit to the Boxer. At l'ort Royal her salute was courteously returned by the Commodore (of the first class) commanding | afloat, as alsoby the Port. Other equally substantial , civilities were received by h?r officers, from the , civil and naval authorities, as also from the regiment t of artillery stationed there. 1 Information being given of the appearance of a piratical craft, ofl Cape Breton, the Boxer made sail ! inquest of her amongst the reefs and keys on the i south side of Cuba?convoying a brig of Philadel- 1 phia to Trinidad. , Her recent cruise on the coast of New Grenada 1 had been of vast service to our commerce, and her , presence on the coast of Yucatan for which she was bound on the 7th ult., was deemed of mu(h impor- j tance I Her officers and crew were all well, though suf- 0 fering somewhat from the intense heat of the cli- s mate, to which they were necessarily exposed. 1 We regret, however, to learn, that the fever had a broken out on board the Volage, by which she had ' itt-n. whvis is preparing 10 rive mem a warm re- < caption. The volunteers w ho lately left Galveston, J; arrived at Arransas a few days l>efore the Mexicans were discovered, and lie sent orders for tlieni to join t him inimediatelv. Captain Owen of Victoria is , also preparing with a body of volunteers from that v action to join him. Should the enemy therefore v venture to attnck him, lie will undoubtedly give * them battle. We regret to learn that the volunteers * had but a small supply of beef on hand. The Trinity now is in good " boating condition." f, The late heavy rains at its sources have filled its n channel. It rose on Thursday last,nine feet during <1 the daw s The late heavy rains in the east, have caused the Sal>ine to overflow its hanks to a considerable ex- fi tent; this, however, has occasioned no serious h damage. <1 A few of the Carece Indians have again made ^ their appearance in the vicinity ofGoliad, and have " stolen a few horses. They api>ear to act in concert \ wiili the renegade Mexicans living in th>' vicinity fi of Carlos' rancho. They have excited very little ? alarm; for it is well known, that tliey form but a ii remnant of one of the weakest and most imbecile a tribes that have ever infested our borders. The 1 whole tribe musters only about fifty or sixty warriors and they are exceedingly poor and destitute. t, Like the Cominanches, their arms consist almost a entirely of bows, arrows and wooden sj>ears. We learn that heavy rains have (alien in theen?t- u I em counties within a few weeks, and there is now s a prospect of abundant crops. Even in San Angus- n tine countv, where the drought was most severe, n th>* r.iins have fallen just in season to secure a plentilul harvttat.

We have received Galveston and Houston papers * to the 18th ult. We clip the following from them. ^ The Congress of Texas have authorized President { Houston to carry on an offensive war against Mexi- a co. 1 A rumor has reached us from the west to the ef- t fe<-t that, a revolution has broken out in the northern * province- of Mexico. It is said that Arista has de- o clared against Santa Anna, and that the Governors of several of the States adjoining the Rio Grande, ? are acting in concert with him. This report was ? brought t? Corpus Christi by some Mexican traders, j It is so much at variance with the report lately brought in by our spies, that a Mexican detachment ? is advancing to attack the forces under Gen. Davis, that it hardly seems worthy of credit. It is possible however, that the absence of General Rpum uritli Kla " detachment, may have atTorded a favorable moment for the outbreak which has been seized upon by Arista. It is well known that Arista has long been ^ hostile to Santa Anna, and it has been onrrently re- ]( ported that he would refuse to sumtiit to his authori- tt tv.tf he should be elevated to the Presidental Chair. \ The resignation of Arista indicated that he was by o no means favorably disposed towards the Mexican a Dictator, and may have matured his plans to throw a off the Mexican yoke, and establish the lonR con- " templated Confederacy of the north. If the States j of 1 amaulipas, New Leon, Coachuila and Chihua- jr Iiua, ean he united under his authority he will easily ? be able 10 hold out against Santa Anna. The Seir- tl ra Madre will form a natural bulwark that he will K be able to maintain with a very small force against tl any army from the south. Should this minor prove * true, the whole policy of Texas will, probably, he changed. Instead^ of carrying on an oifensive war by land, she will find it far more to her advantage to aid in establishing this Kepublie on her western border. 1 Mr. Campbell of Refugio arrived in town on Sun- J day evenine, bringing despatches from Gen. Davis, 0 and a letter from Capt.Owen of Victoria, conveying the intelligence that a large body of hostile Mexicans have lately been discovered by our spies on the San r Gertrudes, who are marching to attack the volun- f tcers at Lipantitlan. The Mexican detachment t consists of seven hundred men. One of the spies * who arrived from Matamoras says that Canales with about ")<*l rnncheros is also on the march to join this ,i detachment, and that the united forces will amount f to 1,3t*? men They are commanded by Gen. Hcyes. t City InUUIfcAe, Colonel Edwkui and Hia Tool Chkst The following are the conteuts of the trunk of this celebrated financier, when opened by Deputy Keeper Homaii on Mon l?y afternoon, when his preparation* to escape were discovered :? 1 inch chisel?sharp. 2 three cornered file*. 1 stone chisel. 4 iron bolts, sharp at onoend. to be tued as loot holds, and to l>e driven in the wall. 1 inch auger i of j inch do. i screw driver bits.

All these articles had be?n placed within hi* reach bj somebody, and the only wonder is that he had not used i hem before to effect hi* escape. i he Bowkrt L him. Cow.?The excitement in regard to this matter continues unabated, and it will be the town talk until some great calamity or new I on visiu us to ab sorb public attention and conversation. The coiuluct of all the parties in the transaction has condaced to keep the subject a':ve, us they appear to be meving heaven and earth to prove the guilt or innocence of the parties, said to have figured in the excursion to Gray s Kerry, accordingly as thoy are allected by the disclosures. We stated on Sunday that Mesdames Morgan and Venables were residing at the residence of Mrs. Morgan's brother, in Catherine-street, where they boldly maintained their innocence, and stoutly denied that either Assistant Alderman Howe or Mr. Husted accompanied them to Philadelphia ; Mis. Venables stating that her husband, a ho had been instigated by others, charged her with being there in company with those gentlemen, and then beating her in the most aruel manner, until she was forced to admit its truth, ami uttering a base lie in order, as she believed, to save her life, Assistant Alderman Howe gave bail in his case, and kept mum on the subject, not feeling disposed to produce his evidence until legally required to do so in his defence. But his friends, being less scrupulous, have widely circulated the report, that he will be enabled to prove by Allerman Nash and otheT equally creditable and unimpeachable witnesses, that ho was in the State of Connecticut, at h?- time he is changed with passing olf as Alderman Venlbles at McAllister's Hotel, Gray's Ferry. Mr. Teter V. Husted published a card in yesterday's pa >ers, requesting a suspension of public opinion on the subect, until he should be able to produce facts to establish lis innocence. It will be recollected that Husted asserts le has proof to prove he was in Boston while the ladies ivere in Philadelphia. Mr. Husted started for Philadelphia on Sunday in order to procure the evidence, as is ;aid, of Mr. McAllister, and the cab-dr iver, that he was >ot the Mr. Morgan that visited Gray'* Kerry with Aldernaa Venablei and the ladies. Mr. William Venables divides his time at his store in he Bowery, and collecting evidence against the above lamed parties, under the direction of his friend William J. ilorgan. I'oor Venables appears to feel tho matter keenly, >nd looks like a man borne down with sorrow and grief. William J. Morgau is engaged in the affair heart aud oul, and follows up every intimation that appears to have he slightest tendency to " prove hit wife a wanton," with sleepless and untiring vigilance. He appears to conider himself one of the lions of the day, and grows fat on he never tiresomo theme ot recounting thu whole story 0 all who may listen, and has even callcd on the publishrs of more than onejournal to furnish them with the case, sr fear the public would lose the duliaious feast. We have thus briefly recounted the position of the paries in the case, and proceed to give such additional pariculars as have transpired since our last publication. On Monday, Horace Gross, the cab driver, arrived in he city with Mr. Morgan, and had an interview with Aesdames Venables and Morgan, at 77 Catherine street, vhom he at once recognized as the ladies whom lie drove iut to McAllister's with the Alderman and Mr. MorganChe ladies had quite a flare up with Mr. Morgan, and fitally owned that the cabman's story was correct. He aferw'ards saw Assistant Alderman Howe, whom he recoglised as the Alderman Venables of Gray's Ferry, and it is aid Mr. Howe owned up, but this we 'cannotjvoiich for. ledid not see Husted, lie being absent in Philadelphia, as efore mentioned. Mr. McAllister arrived in town yesterday, and left gain last evening. During his stay he saw Mrs. Venales drive down the Bowery in a cab, and at once pointed er out as one of the females at his house. He did not se either Howe or Husted, but described their persons nd dress minately. He states that the party were very conomical in their expenses while at his house, and that oung Mr. Morgan, as he was called, bore the blunt, and ettlea the bill, whilo the Alderman did not part with a ingle fip. Mr. McAllister likewise slates tliat he saw nothing of Husted in Philadelphia before h? came from mme, ami th?t in ndditien to the letter he received signed 1 J. Morgan,'' he kas been called upon by several to ntat* hat Husted was not at his house with the ladies, and that, imong others, a handsome lady called, and entreated him vith tears merely to 'ay that Husted was not at his house. Mr. McAllister allowed ua to make a correct copy of he letter left at his hotel at Gray's Jerry during his abence by the gentleman who so ellectively passed himself iff as Mr. Morgan. This letter has on the back of it, the words " For Edlund Scott, at the Franklin|Housc, N. Y.? B. W." which iave been erased with a pen, and the name of " Mr. IcAUister, Present," written on another part of the outide. " Private. Mb. McAllistih, " We will ever l>e grateful to you if you will serve us this time. Sir :? " 1 have come way from New York to ask of you a ivor, which it you grant, will save me my friend from m'n.

Of course you must get all your people to coperate with you, as two stories won't do." The following was written on the back of the letter " Let me hear nil that passes?for Hod's sake save u? rom exposition. It will save you much trouble if you an get clear of them without letting them know that hese two men were with them. Say that the women lept together. Do not show this letter." A Cvnnino John Smith.?This rogue has at last been elected in mother act of rascality that tends to add to his ante as an accomplished villaiu. On the second day of his month he entered tho s ore of Lewis M. Nash, Jr.,4iJ 'anal str. <>t, and selected a small quantity of dry goods, rhieU he requested to hm r ?on? (or examination to the amily of Mr. Lewis, at the northeast corner of Bleecker ind Mercer streets, he representing himself as that gen it-man. rrevious to iea\ing, nowever, ne examined *omo ilk handkerchiefs which he appeared to be wall pleased pith, hut concluded not to take them at that time. A boy ias then sent with the dry goods to tha place directed and oon after his absence, John Smith dropped in again, and tated that he hail been looking at soma handkerchiefs in thcr stores, but not finding any to suit him exactly, he ad concluded to return ana patronize Mr.Nash. He there >re very politely requested that he should be allowed the Ivor of taking the thirteen then presented to him to his welling.and if they suited his family he would keep them luppoaing that the boy bad gone direct to his premises his equeit was granted, and he left taking the goods with dm. The boy soon returned, statiag that he could not nd any such man as Lewis in the neighborhood to which itf had been directed. Mr. Smith, as a matter of course, id not ste.p back with the handkerchiefs, and yesterday Ir. Nash perceived a girl passing by his (tort1 with them ri her iw-ession. Upon being accosted she stated that lie had received tiiein from the store of ( liarIns Hall, t+1 esey street, for tlie pur|v? uf lxiing I'eir Tied, and upon irther enquiry it was ascertain j.? tuet Iil had purchas<1 them from a person who had been in tne ii ilut of selligfdry goods, that he represented he had obta.r.H at uctiori. Through the activity of James L.

Mr. B. then obtained le services of James L. Smith, one of our city police, ,-ho succeeded In arresting him at Brooklyn during the ight, and safely lodged him in the city prison yesterday turning. Soon after this, with the aid of otlicer Mtokelv, ley succeeded in securing his mistress and partner in rime, Mary Jane Montgomery, at the house of the notoions Mrs. Lewis, 109 Church street She had prepared a oard at the window leading from her chamber to tile top f a shed in the yard, down which she slid with railroad pfed, when the otticers entered the house, and landod i an oat-building, where she was finally discovered. A ?rge number of pawn tickets were found in her poisesion, being evidences of gold watches, jewellery, Sic., rhich no doubt had lieen stolen by her while at the aliovi^ remises. Tn KpoesrT *T Niai o's.?While Dr. Smith, of Broome treet. was at Niblo's on Monday evening, he felt someody fingering at his coat pockets, and turning round, a allow started as though suspected of something wrong, ['he Doctor immediately felt of hi* pocket, and found that i large case of surgical instrument* had been removed herefrom, and he immediately gave chase after the rogue, lidedhy officer King, who overhauled him in the garden, ind lodged him safe in prison.

A Klahk vr i!* WtLKl Street?Yesterday morning about 10 o'clock thu vicinity of Walker and Kli'sabetfi street was the scene of a regular bombardment, carried on between Joseph Mott a builder, on.the part of the attacking party, and Deck Powell lor defence. The way thai pitcher*, washboards, doors and window sashes were broken, smashed and crashed, was a caution te all heads and bodies that appeared within reaching distance. The house w as finally entered by the party on the attack, but the result of the morning's work was not ascertained when our inlormant left. The cause may be mentioned at a future period. A Itnittd States Marine in Tmovbi k.?A voung man nainrd James I1. Fredericks, u ho ham recently deserted from the United States marine service, in which he had formerly held rank as master-at-arms, was arrested yesterday by olficer Stokely on a charge of stealing a quantity of clothing from Mr. Henry Spencer and Jules Huvol, who boarded in the house of his mother. The clothing was found at several pawnbrokers' shops, w here he had left them. A woman named Frances llinman, was also arrested as an accomplice of Fredericks in the business, and it is to her perhaps that be owes his present disgrace. We understand that he was removed to the ranks from the office of master-at-arms, a few w eeks since lor misconduct, when he deserted, and has been absent from duty since. A.iothbr Convict Cauoht.?A black fellow named Charles Williams, who recently escaped from Blackwell's Island, where he had been sentenced for six moaths and where he remained but two days, was caught on Monday night by officer Joseph and latedeputy keeperRuckle, and Rarely lodged in the city prison and transferred to his old quarters.

Dodge offered a resolution that the Board re-consider the ordinance to regulate the City Watch, sent with the objections of the Mayor thereto, to this Board from the Board of Aldermen ?Adopted. The ordinance was then taken up and read, in connection with the reasons of the Mayor for refusing his approval of the tame. The subject was debated at great length by several of the members, Messrs. Ward, Nesbit.W. Dodge, C. J.Dodge and others. Mr. Waterman looked upon the resolution as a dangerous precedent, and one not intended or expected to be for the public good, but for the purpose of removing 9-20 watchmen who are supposed to have voted the democratic ticket, and appoint an equal number in their places, w ho are considered as having voted the contrary. Unless the whigs, however, are more successful than tlie democrats have been, they will not find much benefit from the measure, they will please 9-20 men at the expense of creating an opposite feeling in the minds of a greater number even of their own friends. The Mayor, he said, was looked upon by the department, as he was by the whole democratic party iu the city, as a valuable and efficient head, kle trusted the whig members would pause before they took the important uml dangerous step now contemplated. Mr. Scoles replied?He said that the appointment of the watchmcn had always centered in tho Common Council until 1334, whea the members very unwisely yielded it, and gave the power to the Mayor. The whigs now merely seek to restore that power to where it had, been placed by the Montgomery charter and subsequent laws. If the gentleman possesses that true spirit of democracy which he claims, he will be glad to see such power taken from one person and given to the committee, particularly when the individual recently wielding it had so abused that newer. Mr. S. reverted to the watchmen being placed f>v the Mayor in the tea room, for the purpose of overawing the whig members, kf. See. Besides, the Mayor had always been very careful to exclude whigs from any participation in the watch department, that department being conaidered one of the strongholds of the party to which he belonged. Mr. Watfrmaii denied that such was the case. Mr. h 01 r? asked him to naine some whigs in the deI i' 1 Mr. W. replied that he could name three, ry iale, Mr. Bennett, and Mr. Powell. . S. said, well there are three or four at least, but e\ en then would the gentleman vouch for their being whigi. Mr. C. J. Dodge said that four watchmen out of one district had recently been appointed to office by the whigs, showing that the Mayor had retained at least gome there. Mr. Nesbitt stated that Alderman Hatfield went to one of the upper district watch houses last year, assembled all the whig watchmen in a body, and tofu them they might go off, ns there was no further employment for them. Mr. C. J. Dodge doubted this heing the case. [This is merely a brief run of the remarks. The speec hes of Messrs. Waterman and Bcoles were highly creditable to them.l The previous question had been sprung at the start, but k ith'lrawn. The Resolution (taking the regulation of the watchmen from the Mayor, andgiving it to the joint committee of both hoards on police, watch and prisons,) was then concurred in, nine to icven, and the members went to tea. The revolution from the other Board, referring the communication of Mr. Cowdrey, late Counsel of the Board, relative to suits remaining in hi* hands, t? the committee on law*, &c. with power, was concurred in. The revolution Irom the other Board in favor of paying 1500 to Messrs. Wood, Lord, an<l Koote (ffiOO to each) for arguing the recent mandamus before the Supreme Court and ('ourt of Errors, was taken up. Mr. Wathhmaw said the public is a goose for every bodyto pick. Before gentlemen dipped their arms deeply into the treasury to pay Counsel lees, lie hoped thev would onqulre if ft was proper to do to. He did not think the Corporation should become a party to either side, but that gentlemen should pay as in ordinary eases, the expeine of contesting their seats. He asked Mr. Sco!fl? to shew a precedent to such a case. Mr. Scoi.f? sai.l Mr. Butler received $.'>00 for arguintr the subject ofthe right of the Aldermen to sit as Judges of the Sessions. Mr. Watfrmav replied. He wished tlial'the resolution might be referred. Lost. Mr. Wili.iams moved as an amendment that Messrs. O Connor and Jordan be also paid 9600 each. Lost.

Several bills relating to the Navy, were made spec ial order for to-day in the Senate. That p ding lor reimbursing the naval pension fund, is under discussion. The morning business was i an uninteresting nature. The House has passed the bill concerning cor ed elections. The debate ceased at one o'cl una me Mount* concurreu in itie amendments pesed in committee. A resolution was adopted morning, giving the new members such hook had been received by the old ones. This is a pi piece of economy. Here is a House of Repre tntives afflicted with such a paroxyism of retre ment, that they have run down and pinched ears of the messengers and pages about the ca ?cut offsalariedtand perquisites to the tune oft or four thousand dollars, the debate, meant costing |the country more than twelve times amount, made a great parade about reducing 1 own |?y, but showing their sincerity putting the bill to sleep on the "ger ordere," and displayed their penny wisdom pound folly in various other ways enually dign and satisfactory?this House of Hepresental have to-day parsed a resolution giving to each member, in all more than one hundred, books wl will cost the Government more than a thoui dollars.

It is a pity that the people caj know the economical habits of their renr#sentati Professions of retrenchment and reform are ways hollow and insincere. It is ever the cry ol party seeking power. The maiority never fulfil promises made before the ascendancy is obtaii It is nothing but a demagogue's trick, and it is vokingto see the people deluded by it. In Mr. Monroe s time some loud-mouthed pa raised a tremendous hue and cry about retrei inent and reform. A select committee was rai and there were elaborate and searching inv stations into every branch of the public serv Finally the matter comes up in the House, ai was discussed most fully. The debate was i tinued day after day, every speaker becoming n zealous for economising than his predecessor, i the cost to the country was more than fifty thouf dollars. And what do you think was the aggre, of the retrenchment! Two hundred dollars a y not one cent more or less?and this was taken f the salary of a lady. The daughter of the then i I ? . i:_i i i wmty vuiciai, a uiuoi atuuiii|>ii9iicu aim rsuiil woman, discharged the duties of clerk to her fat and they cut her salary down two hundred dol Mr. Adams delivered a high-wrought and ea vagant eulogy upon the present Congress, in House on Saturday. "No Congress," he said, "s; the formation of tne government had done mor< private claimants, or the country." Unfortuna for Mr. Adums, and the reputation of Congress, proceedings of the House on that very day ^how 1 ill-timed was his praise, and how little it wasde ved. Shortly alter eleven o'clock, the House v into Committee of the Whole, and took ui>a pri bill, involving a small amount. More than tl hours were spent in profitless discussion,when it laid aside to be reported. A few minutes after t the question was taken on an amendment to a vate bill, and it was ascertained that only 62, ou 2-12 members, were present. A call of the H< was then moved, and after about an hour's efl the attendance of 111 Members was obtaine absent 128. The doors of the Hall were then cli and excuses received But it was soon found im sible to obtain a quorum, and the House adjourn This is the House that Mr. Adams exalts "abov< Greek or Romanpraise." The wisdom of the suggestion heretofore thr< out, that nothing is left to President Tyler bu adhere to the old republican track, ana actin accordance with his known principles and feeli give to the country a liberal State rights adminu tion, and thus compel the democratic party to r around him, is confirmed by every day's experiei Between him and the whigs there is no commu of feeling?no sympathy?and there can be no Honious action on any of the questions before country. He distrusts their patriotism and they i matise him with every epithet of reproach contai in our language. The nistoty of the country furnii n? aprallel to the vituperation and abuse which I have heaped upon him. Traitor nnd imbecile the gentlest terms they use. But it is idle to d on this point. _ No man in his senses afiects to lieve that President Tyler can conduct his admi tration in conjunction with his quondam allies.

It is t that no practical or beneficial consequences can I from such an organization, even if it could be s ciently comprehensive to make it respectabl But even that is out of the questio Who, then, but the two classes above alluded i will unite in a project so idle, andso hopeless, j suppose the plan of Mr. Noah and his few oi I seeking and office holding associates, should b I far successful as to emhrace five hundred, or cv? ihousaud voters in the cily of'New York? anc cuinbents and applicants might constitute large a force?what result do they pretenc to follow this effort 1 None, whate They do not even affect to believe that they can i trol the election of one solitary representative Congress or the State Legislature. They can rei no useful support to the Administration, nor do I intend or wish to. With respect to the relations that are to sul between President Tyler and the democi party, there has been much misrepresenta and much idle speculation. There can he bargains, or coalitions or compromises?noi there need of any to enable the governr to go on smoothly and prosperously, with a de cratic majority in Congress. Professing the s general (principles, entertaining similar views policy, President Tyler and the democrats can r on common ground, and labor together to reins the prosperity of the nation. Let the succes be nn open question for the present. Why agi it at all at this early day 1 The currency ques settled, and the difference between the Presi and the republicans is (more about names I things?the establishment of an adequate revenuriff, the avails of the lands restored to national treasury?our differences with reign governments all amicably and honor arranged, and all the substantial interests sect by the adoption of a permanent policy, businei every sort would receive surh an impulse as it not felt for years.
