Nr:w Yoaa. 2Sth Jarunn l ua. of the T xrhfquriw1Vtrenail) of the .u rd It eve I |M<1 Awfal Position of tlie Government. On Friday last, a very remarkable und momentous movement took place in the House of Representatives. After a short debate, in which Mr. Fillmore and 0 J. Ingersull made sjieechefi, a vote >vaa taken on the Exchequer plan of the President, and it was utterly defeated, by a vote of 193 to 18 a vote almost unprecedented in the history of any country except that of Coney Island. The whig and locotoco parties united together to put down the Exchequer and the minority of eighteen developes, philosophically, the exact number of the famous "guard," which now support the administration of John Tyler in the House. At me commencement of the present Congress, (the Extra seasion) the " guard" only numbered, in their most paliny days, about six or seven, incuding Mr. Wise, the head, and Mr. Proffit, the tail. In consequence of the recent'pleasant weather, the approach of a comet towards the orbit of the earth, and other philosophical phenomena, the " guard" ha' increased enormously in hulk and quantity, and now numbers about eighteenor twenty The following is the vote in favor of the Exchequer scheme, being those members only who are sfrictly considered the " guard Messrs. Barton, Foster, l.D. Jones, Borden, P. <J. Ooode, Morris, Bowne, llalsted, Rencher, O. tv. Caldwell, Hudson, Tillinsrhast. i^owen, Irwin, T.W.William*, Cashing. W.C. Johnson, Winthrop 19. To these we ought to add Messrs. Wise and Proffit, who were both absent in the temperance cafl of the capitol, and who are considered the principal leaders Mr. Wise, a leader within the bar ot the House of Representatives,aud Mr. Proffit, a leader at the bar of Brown's Hotel thus forming the round number of " twenty voices" who support the administration. J This is a most singular, pregnant, philosophical, and remarkable development. It shows that the administration, disconnected with any party, is utterly inefficient and powerless, for good or evil. It is in a state of suspended animation, which the whole patronage of the government, like one vast galvanic battery, can't start into life, "no wayyou can fix it." A dead frog would show more signs of vitality, on the application of a metallic conductor. This development also indicates that the two organised parties equally withhold their support from Captain Tyler that all the eflorts of the "guard," for nearly two years, to create a party, have been powerless and ineffectual that the government is rapidly approaching a mo9t hopeless state of bankruptcy and that they cannot get through the next summer without calling an extra session to procure funds to pay lor the absolute necessities of life, including pork and crackers for the chowder of the kitchen table. What is the financial position of the administration I In debt about #30.000.000 with an annual revenue of about $14,000,(XX), and an annual expenditure of $25,(XX),000, or more. If something, therelore, is not done soon, the general government, with its vast financial power, will soon follow the States, of Mississippi, Illinois, Indiana, and Pennsylvania, towards the highest cataract of Salt River. While the tariff of last year has utterly destroyed the revenue, the vast expenditures of the government remain as they were. What can prevent the catastrophe! What can avert utter bankruptcy! While the credit, the finances, the solvency of the government are thus rapidly going, all parties, whigs, locofocos and guard, arc very busy intriguing and manoeuvering lor the Presidency in 1844. What in the wide world are we coming to ! The Somkrs Tragedy. The Court Martial commences its session on Wednesday. It cannot be expected that much new light will be thrown on this melancholy affair, but the public tnind will, doubtless, be more satisfied by the institution ol these proceedings. We will give ample reports tof the progress of the proceedings. Firemen's Baij.. This ball takes place to-night at the Park. It will be characterized by all the magnificence which has distinguished former occasions The decorations are of the most splendid and beautiful description. But the charitable objects ot the entertainment ate of themselves amply sufficient to attract attention. Only a few tickets remain unsold, and all who have not yet procured tickets should make application without a moment's delay. American Land and Loan Office We per ceive that Mr. Wm. L. Simers has opened a Land and Loan office al 14 Wall street. We have known this gentleman for many years and of his capacity and ability for such a business, there is no doubt. This is a very capital establishment for the purchase and sale of real estate, situated either in town or country- For further particulars, see advertisement in another column. Bowery Amphitheatre Welch's entire company make their appearance at this establishment to night, having vacated "Old Dniry'Mortwo evenings to make way for the Firemen's ball; and a display of equestrian and other entertainments will be given never before witnessed in the Bowery. On Wednesday they re-open at the Park with the new pantomime of the "Devouring Ogre," a description of which will be found underour amusement head This pantomime has been in prepaiation for several weeks, and promises to be one of the most gorgeous affairs ever witnessed New and superb scenery* painted by that superior artist, Mr. J. R. Smith, wi!j be among the first features of the piece. Chatham Theatre The new and elegaut pan tomime of the " Black Raven," which has been got uj in the most su|xtI> manner, is presented this evening, in connection with anew drama of powerful interest, entitled "Crazy Jane." The astonishing rapidity with which new plays are produced at this theatre, atlorda undeniable evidence of the enterprising spirit ot thr worthy manager and the superior tact and ability displayed in the arrangement of tiie various characters, scenery, dresses, decoration*, Arc. incident to the pieces, deseive and in fact receive the cordial support ol the theatregoing community. City Intelligence. FASDostD. It has been recently discovered that one of the last sets ol Governor Reward was to pardon I-aar Walters out of State Prison, to which he had been sentenced tor perjury in testifying to the ownership of real estate in various parti ol this city, to a .arge amount, in order to tie received as bail lor Otis Allen, w ho was let loose at the time on such security being entered. This is a disgraceful act. Hani cr Henry A. Harrott, (Peter Reiersen's former relerenco in business,) recently convicted of obtaining money Irom clerks under false pretences, was sent to the Slate prison last week. Also, Elizabeth Follensbee and r.harly Sliught, the " touch and take" thieves. Dingier an l Ross are still in the city prison the former by order of the Sheriir, and the latter by order of the aourt. Cosssinn Council.. Both boards of Aldermen meet this evening at A o'clock. Much important business will be transacted, and the report ol Justice Taylor on police reform willjba submitted to theJBiarJ^of Assistant Alder* > .. A'W s Dky Dock*, aud D*y Facw 'Jot friend, "the devil upon two slicks," in Wall street, having pocketed his 91700, including that " coal ash bill," bid defiance to the whigs ol the Common Council, demolished the contract committee, and annihilated Alderman Atwill, has now turned his attention to " dry docks," accompanied with a whisk of his tail hi rernando wood. And first, it is very amusing to see this distinguished financier of the Courier and Enquirer, taunting Fernando Wood for certain operations in the Phenii Bank, which are common t# all the banks in the country. We have for a longtime been acquainted with the extent of Col. Webb's talents as a financier nor are we alone in apprecia'ing his talents they are fully understood by the United State3 I tank, the Baltimore Trust Company, the North American Trust Company, and various other similar institutions, not even excepting Mr. Comptroller Williamson's department ot this city, and the Committee on Police, Watch and Prisons of the Board of Assistant Aldermen. But though well ' known as a financier, he has never been known as a civil engineer, in the matter of dry docks, wet docks, and all sorts of docks. Let us examine the matter. In Saturday's Courier and Enquirer,there are several columns devoted to the subject ofsectional dry docks," in opposition to " Gilbert's Balance Dock," recommended to Congress by Mr. Wood, in a late official report. Since the recent exposure by the whigs, ot the Courier's " motives" in its late attack upon Alderman Daviesand the contract committee, no one will of course suspect its motives in thus attacking Mr. Wood and Gilbert's Balance Dock. For our own part, we know but little of the relative merits of the two docks in question. Both have their advocates. That Congress and the public at Urge may have the subject fully before them, and be prepared to form a correct judgment upon the subject, we have made some enquiries on the other side, and find that a great deal can be said of a Dry Dock at the naval station, Brooklyn. In the first place, there are numerous cliques of speculators,f&c. opposed to the construction of any dock whatever, at this station, as follows : Clique 1st That in favor of the removal of the station to Ward's Island 21 - on to foot Of 42(1 it-, Hudson River 3d " ' " " New Brighton 4th " ' " " Barn Island 6th " " " " Governor'! Island These cliques have arisen from the fact that the shores, fiats and marshes ot the Wallabout are unfit for the construction of a stone dock. Three examinations thereof have been made first in 1926; 2d 1836; lastly in 1842. The soil arises from a semipeat, mud, black, hard pan, coarse gravelly sand to a depth of one hundred feet. The hard pan is but six feet, and censequertiy cannot sustain the super" structure of a stone dock. The required expenditure at a proper site is estimated at $1,000,000, at the Brooklyn station It would be an experiment; hence the examination of the hydrostatic or floating principle. The sectional process was first applied in this port in the winter of '3S-'39. It was a failure; the patentee could not construct from his project; others attempted to carry out the plan, and partially succeeded. This dock has upset twenty times ; it is located at the foot of Jeflerson street, E. R., a witness of the folly and ignorance of the projector. At length the same patent right pas&ed into the hands of respectable speculators, and the Rutger street sectional dock was built. It was constructed under th. direction ot a worthy man and good mechanic. Ttsmachinery was invented and applied by honest, intelligent mechanics, but its plan and application are what they were at first. The process patented has been retained, and constitutes its distinctive and patentable feature; and it it the use of this jirincip'c, that gives merit to the structure. It is admitted to be a great dock, strong dock and a handsome dock; that it raises vessels high into the light, Rnd air too high lor safety, being on the top of unstable,flexible sections Loading vessels on deck,leaving their holds filled with nothing but air, is a new application of hydrostatics. To carry the weight of a ship in a ship, is an old safe practice- To place it on the top of sectional boxes and trust to other independent boxes to keep it there, and steady the boxes and ship, is anew invention. There is a patent right for it. Who, understanding it, would give a dollar for ltl The balance dock is constructed with greater strength than that of a man of war. Its buoyant power and strength are equal to 2,200 tons. Its length and breadth are adapted to vessels of 400 tons It has raised a dead weight of 1500 tons, in the shape of ballast, vessel, and cargo. Its excess of power is inevitable; there is no loss of power. A dock to raise a line of battle ship of 5,200 tons, would have a raising power of 15,000 tons ; its size would be 240 feet by 90. Its water ballast would be less than 1000 tons for each side camel, which could be discharged upon the raising ot a ship; rendering this dock the mo9l buoyant process imaginable, and ot a draft with a line of battle fhip docked, not exceeding 11 feet. The dispute among the various iliqw* involves but the appearance and apparent power of the two docks now in use; but a government commission was appointed to ascertain the merits of the two plans and process of construction. The authorities in favor of the Balance Dock of John S. Gilbert, who decide that it is decidedly preferable to any other floating plan, are : Walter R. Johnson, Chief of the Bureau of ScientiAc Ex aminations at Washington, Satnuel Humphrey#, Chief Naval Architect of the U. S. Government. R. B Kennon, of the U. 8. Navy. Samuel Hartt, Naval Comtructor, aucceaaor of HehVy Ec.kiord, at the Naval Station, New York, etc. Foster Rhodes, Naval Constructor, New York Station. Baron Ghega, Chief Naval Comtructor of the Austrian Government, and numerous other eminent Civil and Naval Engineers and ship owners. In addition to the above is the following testimony : We, the undersigned, are acquainted with the Balance Dock of John 8. Gilbert have witnessed its operationhave used it to dock and repair our vessel* and areconvinced of ita superiority over any known process of docking : Naw York, Jan. 24, 1848. Boorman.

Nkw Yore, Jan. 24,1913. ^uchare the factsand figures the statements and authorities in reterence to the three kinds of Dry Docks, which have become of late a very interesting question, botli in Washington and New York. The idea, however, of imputing corrupt motives to a committee, or any portion of a committee, of Congress, because they may recommend any one of these in preference to the other two, is not only pre|K>sterous and absurd but absolutely wicked and unprincipled. But it seems the Courier and Enquier have only one m thod of treating every subject on every occasion. If uny jierson in Congress, or out of it, entertains an opinion on any subject, differing from die notions of the "devil upon two sticks," he i forthwith denounced as corrupt, interested, no gentleman, and only fit to be "cowhided out of the city." The character of this mode of conducting any public controversy, is such a ludicrous mix'ure flf ilriltil 1111 o /l rx k II w/i * n ijtvnnno /1/Mial/v rra . eration of ignorance and arrogance such a ridicu Ions composition of miserable intellect and ferocious manner- that its incarnation in any being can only excite a broad ha! ha 1 of laughter and derision. Away with all such trash! We have yet full confidence, amid the degeneracy ol the age, that there is yet honesty in Congress to act justly on the subject. Naval It is rumored that Commod'r Dallas will succeed Commodore Jones in command of the Pa cific squadron, the other having been recalled h is also rumored that Captain F. A.

Fibst Motbmbnt or tub Nbw Phiumopkus Thk Approach op tub Koast-but and Plumbpt'ddina Millennium. At length the new-light phil.v-ephers, of the present very intereatiag age, have commenced a decided movement a practical movement a first step towards the Millennium, which is to consist principally ol plenty of roastbeel and plumb-pudding plenty oi work and plenty of play plenty of every thing that the heart of man or woman can delight in. The following important article appeared a few days ago in the Tribune, which is the organ of (he new philosophy in these parts: 1'roiosals for Organizing an AiiOcIatioz We pre> nt to the friends of Asiociation and the Public, the Con titution of, and Propoial* for, lounding an Association. We come forward with the proposition with the fullest confidence that it is an undertaking which offers a perfectly safe investment to capital and abroad and unshack led field of action 10 the enterprising Industrialist or Producer. To establish such an Association as we propose, about $-4)0,000 in cash capital will be required. It would seem that thia sum could tie obtained ; if there are two hundred persona who can invest each upon an average a thousand dollars, the amount can be raised. Their Capital would be perfectly safe, is tho lands, edifices, Hocks, of the Association would be pledged to secure it : this kind of property could not be stolen or squandered, like the Capital of a Bank or an Insurance Company, and thoae who invested their money would be on tho Property and tak part in rendering it profitable and productive. It will offer man a release from the envious strife, the conAicts, (he deceptions and uncertainties of business ; it will offer him an agiceahle abode; where the advantages of Country and City life can be combined, and the healthy pursuits of Industry can be connected with, Intellectual and Social enjoyments, aud the cultivation of the Arts and Sciences. If wealthy persons would take part iu the establishment of the proposed Association, it would secure to them the incalculable advantagesot Attractive Industry and Health; they coull apeud their summers in it, and would And a mode of life infinitely superior to that which they now lead in their isolated Country Seats. Their children would, in additiou, obtain a thorough Education tor a system of Industrial and Scientific EJucation, infinitely superior to any thing that now exists, will ba established in the Association. Aa regards location, we would recommend some point between the Cities of New-York and Philadelphia. A tract of land of a thousand arret will be required, and if a location could he obtained at a favorable point on the beautiful shores of tho Delaware, we would strongly recommend it. HORACE OREELY and ALBERT BRISBANE are ap|>ointed to receive proposals for subscriptions to Stock. Application can be made to tkem by letter post paid or in nerson. (To H. OscitLr.r, at the office of the Tribune; and to A. Brisbanr, at 76 Leonard street. As the first fact to bo ascertained is the amount of Cash Capital which can be obtained, those persons who wish to take part in the undertaking arc requested to state what amount of Stock they can take and pay for in cash. We would particularly request that persons will not mako proposal*, unless they are perfectly certain that they can meet them. One-half of the amount subscribed for will be leouired iu Anril. an 1 one-half in Scntember. Person! who take a lufticient amount of Stock may reserve to themselves the right of entering the Association at any future period. By referring to the Constitution.it will be seen that eight per cent, interest is guaranteed to those who invest a Cash Capital It will be asked What amout of Stock a person must take toobtain admission as a member ofthe Association? We want $300,001); and if none but those who wish to enter the Association will take Stock, then a subscription of $1,000 will be uecesgary. These are the outlines of the first movement that is to lead society to the grand philosophical millennium. What shall we do about it ? As we give a fair and independent support to all new religions, moral and philosophical movements, from Joe Miller the jester, down to Joe Miller the Prophet from Jack Stern the cobbler, up to Joe Smith the Mor- | mon, it is but fair that we should help these valuable latter-day philosophers, Horace Greely and Albert Brisbane. This great project is to pull down all tVe farm houses, towns and cities, and to organize the whole population of the United States into vast agricultu-* ral societies, with immense castles and big barns, in which men and women (and much cattle) are to have equal rights and liberties and devote their whole time to industry, science, philosophy, religion, roast beef and plumb-pudding. The doctrines KanfrnCt T^pnurnonn P.honninflr lcnimuvoAM on/1 all the " wise men of the east," are to be carried into practical operation, and the whole country is to become one beautiful " Gsrden of Eden." New York and all the large cities are to bei permitted to grow over with weeds and grass Broadway will be covered with nettles and prickles but the country in every direction will be covered with gigantic Fourier castles, far more engaging than the Gothic structures of old, and the inmates entirely devoted to science and philosophy. The mtn aud women are then to have equal rights knowledge will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea and the great eastern gate of Eden, which has been guarded by two angels, with flaming swords, for nearly 5817 years, will be opened, and all the world will enter therein. This is the real millennium so step up, you that have money, and take stock. We want 8200,000 to begin with, and we promise 8 per cent interest. Albany. (Correspondence of the Herald.] Ai.bany, Friday, Jan. 27, 1843. In the Senate to-day, Mr. Foster introduced a a bill relative to common schools in the city ot Brooklyn. Mr. Dickinson introduced the following resolutions : "Resolved, That the Comptroller report to the Senate, the amount of all the dehta due from the State to individu als, (omitting what is due from one fund to another,) including all the stocks which have been iaaued to defaulting companies. "Alio, the amount of al lttocka which have been issued to canal or railroad companies which hare paid their interest. "Also, the amount of capital which is required to be invested at 0 per cent, to pay the annual Indian annuities. "Abo, to report the average amount of the auction and salt duties, lor the five years prior to the 30th of Sept. last, and what amount ot principal would be required to be invested at 6 per cent, to produce an annual income equal to such average amount of auction and aalt duties." What with resolutions of this nature, and reports in reply, we, cannot but speedily have a clear insight into the whole financial condition of the State. The bill to incorporate the New York floating dry dock company was passed in committee of the whole, as was also the bill in relation to the trustees of the Seamen's fund and retreat in the city of New York. Tlx* bill to repeal the act in relation to the inspection of sole leather.pasaed May, 1841, was adopted in committee of the whole. Mr. Franklin explained the bill. He said the law now proposed to be repealed, was passed on the last day of the session of 1841, and provided for tue appointment of an inspector-general of sole leatherin the city of New York. The leather dealers, on bein? informed of ito passage united, in a petition to the Governor, that he would make no appointment under the law; and consequently the law had remained a dead Utter ii|Hin the statute book. The leather dealers, with great tinaminity, had asked for its repeal, and hence the introduction of this bill. In the Assembly to-day, Mr. Jones presented n memori 1 and remonstran<- of the Marine Insurance Companies in the city of New York, against the law now , ending, contemplating an alteration in the pilot laws. The objections are based upon the supposition that this law, if passed, will interfere wuh the law of Congress, bv which pilots having licenses from contiguous S' tes, ere permitted to pilot vessels in and out of the harbor of New York. In presenting this memorial, Mr. J. remarked that this supposition was entirely erroneous. The pending law did not interfere at all with the law of Congress, many of the delegation who had charge of the bill being of opinion that any law on this subject interfering with the law of Congress, would be unconstitutional. Bills were reported to-day to incorporate the American Star and AtlaH Mutual I surance Companies in the city of New York. Also, one by Mr. Daly, relative to the Court of Common Pleas in the eitv of New York. The bill (o amend the charter of the New York Bowery Insurance Company, was passed through in committee, and ordered to a third reading. A good deal of debate was drawn out on this bill. Judge Tallmadge cannot have the appointment he was seeking for. The article relative to his past political opinions, in the New York Evening Post the other day. has used hi in up in this quarter. You will have seen ere this, the proposition submitted in the Senate, relative to retrenchment in the salaries of State officers These are important reforms, ami they appear, too likely to meet with favor in the Legislature. The next move, then, should he to cut down their own per diem allowance from 93 to 92, or #1,50, wh ch would render the retrenchment equal in every branch of the State government The Military Convention organized yesterday.and were in session to-day. It is rather a slim affair, however. These military men, who take charge o1 the fines, etc don't like Governor Bouck's message relative to the Military. Simon. Bristow's Writing Acadkmy.
