NEW YORK HERALD. IS'rw York, Tuesday, December 1%, 1848. Ot r Washington Kepobts.?There it> some mis take made at Washington, either by our rejiorlers there, or at the l'ost Office, in relation to our rej?orts and letters. During the last week we have not received a single letter through the editorial mail bag, made up for this city. Whoee fault is this 1 Is it the fault of our reporters, or of the Washington Post Office 1 Will our reporteni at Washington inquire and make the pn>|>er arrangemenltil HyiUrlti of Politic*?nr. Calhowi'f PmIf Ion. A , deal of newspaper discuneion is at present foing on in relation to the position which Mr. Calhoun occupies since the recent doings in I ongress. *' What is Mr. Calhoun going to do 1"?" Where is he going?"?"Will he support Van Buren I"? *' Will he give up all his own chances V?"What will he do V and such questions are put on all sides, and they seem to puzzle a great many of the politicians amazingly. Colonel Webb, who takes a great interest in the inovementB of Mr. Calhoun, if by them he supposes he can realize any benefit to his own party, and divide the democracy, seems to be very- much puzzled at the present moment about Mr. Calhoun. He wishes him, above all things, to get up a separate organization from that of Van Buren, and go so as to do as much mischief as possible to the gener&l'cause of the democratic party. But Colonel Webb, friendly and disinterested adviser that he is, makes no offers of profit or advantage to Mr. Calhoun from that quarter. There is not a solitary plate, nor a single knife and fork for Mr. Calhoun at the whig table. They are indeed very desirous that he should destroy the kitchen utensils of the other party, and damage their crockery ad libitum ; and if he do bo they will be exceedingly obliged to him, will takeoff their hats and bow very low to their chivalrous southern friend, as tliey thank him for his services. But they have no idea of receiving such a guest, and poor Mr. Calhoun has not the chance even of Lazarus to pick up the crumbs which fall from the table. On die other hand, Messrs. PhilosophersMcCracken Sc Co. of this city, who undertook to organize the Calhoun party jht m, and manage all its movements on the principles of free trade, supporting free trade with the same pertinacious obstinacy that every one would fair weather?seem to be as much, nay, more puzzled than Webb. They are exceedingly disinterested and dissatisfied with the condition of things at Washington. Swearing and pouting, and working themselves up into a respectable little whirlwind of passion and fury, they affirm that Mr. Calhoun has not given in to Van Buren? not he ; that he does not mean to do bo ; that he means to stand for the district system?that he doe?; and that he will support free trade till the day of judgment and for one week after that important event,?interest included. It is very amusing to witness all these discussions, misrepresentations, mystifications, contradictions, and other absuidities which are exhibited by these purblind, birdVeye-viewing, narrow-souled, logger headed politicians. Borne time ago the position and movements of Mr. Webster were all the talk, of the day, and formed the perpetual subject of discussion, speculation, vaporing, and trash for the papers throughout the country. But a quietus has been put to all that by the Andover development.? Mr. Webster has returned to the embraces of the whig party, takes hia chance for the kitchen drippings, and all interest has ceased in him and his chowder pot. But the mantle of mystery,as it fell from his broad shoulders, seems to have descended 011 the equally broad shoulders of Mr. Calhoun; and now we suppose that for the next four or five months, up till the meeting of the Baltimore Convention, the whole country will be discussing? "What will Calhoun do!" "Will he fall in with Van BurenV' "What is his position1?" "Where is he to goV' It certainly seems to us that the position of Mr. Calhoun may be very readily assigned, in spite ot all the mystification and little trickery with which llir politicians would Burround it. Twenty years ago Mr. Calhoun was in a position, in relation to Mr. Crawford, precisely similar to that which he now occupies with respect to Mr. Van Buren. He started a? a stump candidate in order to force the Crawford party to accede to his terms, and being dissatisfied with the terms offered by them, he kept up the war, and thus threw himself, Crawford, and the whole party on their hacks, from which disagreeable position they did not remove until by accident they hit upon General Jackson. Now it is hardly to be supposed that Mr. Calhoun will aserond time run his head against a stone wall. That is an operation which men don't wish to be repeated; and we take Mr. Calhoun to be a man who gets a little wisdom by experience. It is most probable that after having ascertained, beyond a possibility of doubt, from the action of the Representatives in Congress that he is in a very serious minority there, he will suomit to his destiny,?fall quietly into the Van Buren ranks?take care of his plantation?look after his slaves?and see that during the spring weather they are properly physicked and made as comfortable as possible. But of course, if Mr. Calhoun is particularly desirous to elect Mr. Clay, destroy his own prospects, and defeat the principles which he says he has so much at heart, he will run a separate ticket from Van Buren, should that personage be nominated by the Convention. Still we can't believe that Mr. Calhoun will be quite so much of a fool. In spite, therefore, of all that is said to the contrary, we are more and more satisfied that Mr. Calhoun will tall into the ranks and he a good soldier in the ranks of Van Buren in the ensuing Presidential campaign. But this by no means settles the question that VaB Buren i? to be elected President. The content, indeed, is narrowed down by the withdrawal of Calhoun. Bui the issue of the conflict between Clay and Van Buren is indeed very doubtful to all enlightened and reasonable men. There are new element* coming into the field which mightily increase the difficulty occasioned by the conflict of those formerly in existence. It will be recollected that, at the last election, in the free States the abolition party polled about 60,0110 votes. This extraordinary number of votes, much greater than ever before received, would be quite sufficient, if cast on one side or the other, to affect very materially the issue of the contest between Clay and Van Buren. But l?e?ides that, we have the new and formidable organization of the American Republicans,which is spreading with unprecedented rapidity throughout the whole Union. It ap(>ears from a document re< ently emitted at Washington that this party has already ISO,000 pledged members throughout the country. Like&Unew movements, thi? has been conducted with great enthusiasm and spirit. It has no spot on il# escutcheon?its banner is one which rnnnot but attrnct the energi** of ihe greut mas? ol the |?eople, and what is there to prevent it from changing the whole aspect of the relative chances r>f Van Huren and Clay, long before next May i "me* with its flower*,and sunshine, and Baltimore ( onvention?

There were twelve hundred person* in Wuahington Hall last night, and not a puis*- among them that was not bounding fur, tar beyond the utmost limits, of sobriety. Music? music?music?the violin?the violin?the violin ! What art" we coming to! At a quarter past seven o'clock every bench in the Hull was tilled. Thirtytwo additional one* were brought, and scarcely arranged on the floor before they were every one taken almost by storm. At twenty minutes to eight a young and vigorous man might possibly have squeezed his body as far as six feet from the door, but tor the feeble and asthmatic, the entrance was as effectually barred as the gates of Paradise when the angels, with (laming broadswords, were stationed on the bastions. The audience was as miscellaneous as it was large, and afforded the best evidence possible of ths universal predominant'*, amongst all classes of our community, of a passionate love of music. There were pals-faced beauties, in silks and velvelts, from Waverley Place?smart, saucy milliners,in brilliant mouslines de laine.from Division street?pretty, rosy girla, of fascinating plumpness, from the Bowery?all ages?the "sere and yellow leaf" and the budding rose?wigs, false teeth and pearl powder, and waving ringlets?the roseate tints oi sixteen, and li|>s that would have tired St. Anthony.

"Ishe handsome 1" lisped a lovely girl, with eyes that shone like stars, and a dazzling neck.? "Ah, not very?that is?yes?ah!?why, really 1 don't know," replied a sallow young man, with a slight obliquity of vision, wh? sat by her side.? "Please take off your hat." "Where can I pul it1?" "You are crowding the lady, sir." "Oh do you see Ole Bull 1" " Where 1" " Let m? see." " Ho tell: is that he T' " Don't you see hit eyes staring there above the crowd 1" " Oh, so il is." " Dear me, is that Ole Bull V' " Well, I declare!" " Hush, Vieux Temps is coming on."? No, that's only Mr. Hill, the leader." " That Hill's a fine fellow." " Yes." ' Excuse me, sir."? " Well, this is a crowd." " Isn't that a charming creature!" ''Who is she 1" "Oh, that's old P *s daughter." " More brilliant execution dc you say 1" " Well, my opinion is?" "You trod on my toes, sir." " What an eye !" " Take ofl your roof, sir." " Bewitching." " I can't altei my opinion." "Artot." "A bloody fine woman that." "He lost something like six hundred."? "Old fool." "Afoot and ankle that." "Soul and enthusiasm." Such are specimens of the snatches of the conversation which fell upon the ear, when the leadei gave the signal, and the orchestra commenced a brilliant overture. It was listened to very patiently, and after the plaudits which burst forth on its clos?', the deepest silence prevailed. Anxiety to sec the new candidate for popular applause?it mis;ht be the new idol?was visible in every face. For several minutes the hall was as hushed as the chamber of death. A slight movement was seen amongst the members of the orchestra, and then a very young and graceful man stepj>ed on the plat form. It was Vieux Temps. A perfect storm ol applause greeted his appearance. He advanced with much modesty to the centre of the platform, and bowing repeattdly, signified his gratitude for the friendly greetings of the audience. It wai some minutes before he could proceed, but on hit motioning to the leader to commence the overture the Hall again became as hushed and silent ai before. Vieux Temps is decidedly handsome. He is about the middle size?has a very graceful figure? a fine head?an exceedingly amiable face?and his whole air and bearing are characterized by mo< desty and dignity. He was dressed plainly, but with great neatness, the only ornaments he wore being gold droits pendent from his ears which gave a somewhat oriental expression to hi: dark and finely chiselled features. Of his per formance we shall speak at length hereafter. Ir the meantime we merely state that it elicited t^e most enthusiastic applause, that he was re peatedly called out to receive the acknowledge ments of the audience, which were tendered t< him with unequivocal sincerity and warmth?anc that after the performances were over he was fol lowed to the ante-room by a great number of la dies and gentlemen, who besought the favor of ar introduction, and hv whom he ia-h? litomllu whelmed with compliment and congratulation. Musical Movements.?Madame Jolly, a soprano, seems to be making quite a sensation at New Orleans?almost as much as the Catholic quarrel and Bishop Blanc. This probably was the caus* of Mademoiselle Calve taking poison. Henry Russell, per te. at the last accounts, was at Charleston, on his way to New Orleans. He it making a great deal of music and money in the south. Russell is an original genius in song, in lalk, in speechifying, an.l in anecdote. Som* time ago, he sung with great feeling, "Woodman, spare that tree," in one of the small southern towns. At the close, along lank Southerner rose to the height of seven feet, and, with a great deal of excitement, axked of Mr. Hussell?"and did they spare thai tree1?" Kussell was nonpluaaed for a momentlooked at him with surprize, but suddenly repliec ?" Yes, sir, they did spare that tree." The othei cooled off at once, replying, " I am damned glad of it?for I'll have a snuff box made out of that tree the next time I go to New York." So he shall?come along. The I>efittimatf Drama or Forty Horsf Power.?We hear a great deal about the legitimate drama?and the decline of t he legitimate drama?and the causes of the decline of the UiMfimali* Hrntun urwl #lw? n of the decline of the legitimate drama?and the power which induce* the increase of the cause* oi the decline of the legitimate drama, but we heliev?! that a new*(>eeie* of the legitimate drama i* ahoul to he introduced by that magnificent fellow, Nihlo, which will net every thing to right* in thi? world, and prepare ua for the millennium of thf highest order of classical amusement at last. Thii is the revival in the highest classical elyle, and with the greatest hopes of success?the revival w? wty of the old-fashioned legitimate horse drama with forty of the finest steeds that ever scattered the Olympic dust, or coursed in unrestrained freedom through the wilds of Arabia, all under thf guidance of that wiz/.ard-inaster of the ring?Levi | North. This genius North is a very remarkable man in his way. He is rather of small stature?so wai Napoleon. He is a compactly built man?so wa? Alexanderthe Great He has a fine dark rolling eye? ?o had Shaks|?eure. He lias in his limb* strength and agility combined, which outstrip altogether Napoleon, Alexander and Shakspeare, and them all. W<- understand that by (lie beginning ol next week, probably on Monday, this new revival of the legitimate drama of forty horae power will commence at Niblo's, and that the glories of Frair eoni'* (ftjd Astley'* will be completely erli|>*e<l by the exbifxtini)* of New York. Wait, therefore, and tremble wufc joy.

Society, the object of which will he the relief of persons shipwrecked and the I restoration of persons upparently drowned. The meeting wannioat respectably attended,and Mr. J. I | D. P. Ogden presided. Uekkral Tillmadoe stated that tha Committee appointed at the lait meeting on thii subject, had been iu- , stiucted to organize a plan of, and to make arrangements 1 for the commencement of the Society?a duty which they had now performed, and he called upon the Secretary to i*ad their report. Mr. H. Main* then read the addreas issued to the citizen* of New York by the committee,which forcibly urged j the neceaaity for such an institation , and added, that it ' had been mo?t favorably received. The committee had. j farther, in obedience to their in*truelioui, drawn up the i constitution of the aociety, in thirteen articles, all of which he read. These articles provide that the society shall bo located at New York, but that auxiliaries may be established in other places; for the appointment of twen'y-Kix directors, who shall be elected annually by the members of the society; and for the apportionment of subscriptions and donations. The Committee recommeuded that tliu following twenty-six gentlemen be elected the first board 01 directors :?vaienune .?io?, m. u.; j. w. t rancis, ni. D.; ("has. A. Lee, M. D.; Rev. Mr. Cutler ; Rev. Mr. Wain Wright: He v. Mr. Spring ; Rev. Mr. Dewey ; James Tallmadge j Henrv Meigs ; Oliver M. Lowndes ; Adam Chandler ; A. (J. Thompson ; ( apt. Silas Stringham, ("has. H.

Co.) ; Jis. Blunt and Neziah Bliss. The Chairman in answer to an inquiry, whether the Constitution of tha Society, as read, included relief to per, sons shipwrecked?foreigner! for instance?statod that at present provision had not been made for such cases. The constitution provided only for the organization of the society, and for its general objects : any aid l>eyond would, of course, depend upon the extent of its meansThe report of the committee and the appointment of the twenty-six directors were then adopted. The Secretary read a letter from Mr. J. Blunt, addressed to Oeneral Tallmadge. and other members of the committee, in which he stated that shortly after the disastrous wrecks of the Mexico and the Bristol, a subscription was set on foot to provide means to aid vessels on shore near Sandy Hook. The monies then collected had been appropriated in providing life boats and other apparatus to rescue persona from shipwrecked vessels. These had been placed in two houses erected to preserve them from the weather, and they consisted of two life boats properly provided, one placed at Rockaway, near the the Marine I'avi1 lion, and one on Long Branch, near the fishing station.? i The boats were placed under the charge of the wreck masters of the respective districts, who had provided them with competent crews. In several instances property and i persons had been saved from wreck ; and last year thirty persons were taken from a vessel on shore by the Rockaway boat, when no other boat could approach the wreck. 1 The title to the ground upon which the houses stood, hail . been taken in his (Mr. Blunt'*) name, and the property had continuod under his control; but it seemed to him that - matters be.onging eo peculiarly to the public, should not i rest upon individual responsibility, and he did not doubt , ho should best conform to the wishes of the generous donors who contributed to the fund by offering, as he now ? did, the property ia his charge to the society which they (the committee) were about to establish. This letter was ordered to be received and entered on [ the books. Gemerai. Tillmadgf. then addressed the meeting at some length, pointing out several of the means which the directors would establish, or recommend to be establish, ed, lor the preservation of life in shipwreck, and for the restoration of suspended animation. The Rev. Mr. Cutler narrated the circumstances under which he was lately wrecked in the Sheffield, and . strongly urged that a reward was due to Captain Vander' hilt, of the steamer Wave, who rescued the passengers, at > the risk of his own vessel, at one o'clock in the morning. I He approved much of a suggestion by General Tallmadge, ' that a system of signals should be established for the purf pose of sending relief to vessels in distress. Commodohk De Kay suggested that aid might perhaps be procured from the general government?at least so lar I as to employ some men belonging to the nary, at the signal stations. , General Cminijn recommended that the best mode ' of resuscitating persons apparently drowned, should be extensively published. One mode was by advertising it in the newspapers ; and he thought that much good might l>e done by its being placed In every hat that was sold in every shop, so that it the owner was apparently drowned, the proper means to be used for his restoration, might be easily and immediately read. i Dr. V. Mott having stated that he considered the last suggestion of General Chandler quite original, and one of great utility, entered into considerable details of the most approved treatment in case.] of suspended respiration ; and said they would all engage the earnest attention of the committee, with a view to their publication. The meeting then separated. " Mock Auctions."?The number of these infamous establishment* has greatly increased, and p in several of our principal streets they have become I a perfect nuisance. They constitute one of the very remarkable and peculiar mysteries of New 1 York which have not yet found a Eugene Sue to unveil ahd depict them. These " mock auctions" . are got up by a sort of confederacy, composed of half a dozen individuals, termed Peter Funks.

Some one of the Peter Funks gets hold of some Connecticut or eastern , man, gets him into the store, tips a wink to the chiet of the bureau for the time being, who then | produces a large box, filled with a most miscellaneous assortment of articles, one or two of them worth i perhaps fifty cents or a dollar. Some of the I'eter Funks bids a cent on the articles, the Connecticut man, to whom the only articles in the "lot" worth anything, have been judiciously exhibited, elated ? by the prospect of a glorious bargain, bids two j cents, and the box is knocked down to him. He is then taken to the back room, and learns that he is to pay two cents on every article on the whole lot, ( and if he refuses to pay, he is at once pounced upon and plundered of all the cash in his possession. But these chaps sometimes get caught in a trap. The other day it so happened to a few of the fra. ternity. A Spanish sailor was led into one ot these ' | dens, and plundered of all his money. He was I j only one against six, and he prudently refrained ! i from retaliating in any way at the time. But next day he returned with a dozen of his messmatos, i entered the store, locked the door inside, and i thrashed the whole lot of scoundrels, from left to right, and right to left, till they were all beat almost to a mummy. The Jack tars then made the I'eter Funks return the money, and after giving three cheers for honesty, they retreated in triumph to the grog shop on the corner.

JPY/Ham Cunningham, formerly Briliih Proroit-Morihiil in the City of New York, who t?<u executed in London, the ItMA Jlugutt, 1791. I, William Cunmm.ham, was torn in Dublin-Barracks, t in the year 1738. My father was trumpeter in the Blue Dragoon*; and at the' age of eight years I wai placed with an officer an hi* servant, in which station 1 continued until I was sixteen, and being a great proficient in horseman, ship, ?'i< taken as an assistant to tliu riding matter of the troop, and in the year 1701 was made sergeant of dragoons; hut the |>eace coming the year following, I was disbanded. Being bred to no profession. I took up with a woman who kept a gin .shop, in a blind alley, near the Cole Quay; hut the house being searched for stolen goods, and my doxytaken to Newgate, I thought it most prudent to decamp; accordingly I set oft'(or the north, and arrived at Drogheda, where, in a few months after, 1 married the daughter of an excise-man, by whom 1 had three sons. About the year 1172, we removed to Newery, where I commenced the profession of scaw-banker, which is that of enticiug mechanics and country people to ship themselves for America,on promise of great advantage,and then artfully getting an indenture upon them, in coaseijuence oi which, oil their arrival in America they were sold, or obliged to serve a term of years for their passage. 1 embarked at Newery in the ship Needham, foi New York, and arrived at that port the fourth day of August, 1774, with some indented servants 1 kidnapped in Ireland; but they were liberated in New York, on account of the bad usage they received from me during the passage. Ill that I tka nmfuHiiinn of lir?nbincr thp hnrflPS ami teaching ladies am! gentlemen to ride; but, rendering my- a self obnoxious to tne citizen*, ill their infant struggle, j, for freedom, I was obliged to IIy on board the Asia man- [ of-war, and from thence to Boston, where my own oppoti- l tion to the measures pursued by the Amerioanf, in sup- : port of their rights, wits the lirst thiug that recommended c me to the notice of (ienerul Gage; and when the war com- 0 menced, 1 was appointed Provost-Marshal to the royal p army, which placed me in a situation to wreak my ven- t geance on the Americans. I shudder to think of the mur tiers I have t?en accessory to, liotli with and without or- p ders from government, especially while in New York, v during which time there were more than two thousand t prisoners starved in the ditferent churches, by stopping their rations, which 1 sold. ' There were also two hundred and seventy liveAmerican s prisoners and obnoxious persons executed, out of all which numlier there were only about one dozen public execu- t! tions, which chiefly consisted of British and Hessian deserters. The mode for private executions wu thus con- [ ducted: A guard was dispatched from the Provost, about half-oast twelve at night, to the barrack street, and the i( neighborhood of the up|>cr barracks, to order the people to shut their window shutters, and put out their lights, for- \ bidding them, at the same time, to presume to look out of " their windows and doors on puin of death, after which the l unfortunate prisoners were conducted, gagged, just behind the upper barracks, and hung without ceremony, and b there buried by the black pioneer of the Provost. ' At the end of the war I returned to England with the | army, and settled in Wales, as being a cheaper place of ( living than in any of the populous cities; but being at length persuaded to go to London, I entered so warmly into the dissipations of that capital, that 1 soon found my circumstances much embarrassed, to relieve which 1 mort- ' gaged mv half pay to an army agent: hut that being soon expanded, 1 forged a draft for three hundred pound* sterling on the Board of Ordnance, but being detected in presenting it for acceptance, I was apprehended, tried and convicted, and for that ollence am nere to suiter an ignominious death. 1 beg the prayers of all good christians, and also pardon and forgiveness of God for the many horrid murders I have been accessory to.

Wopdhouse,arrived on Sunday in a short passage from Liverpool. Her passengers have, since 1 then, published the following card, which contains \ as many truths as it does words:? t At a meeting ol the cabin passengers ou boanl the pack- ot ship Queen of the West, ou the completion of her pas- t sage trom Liverpool to New York, Dec. 9th, 1843, the i following resolutions wore reported by a committee previously appointed, consisting of the lit. Rev. Bishop O'Con- | nor a?d Messrs. Folsom and Petrie.when, on motion, they I were unanimously adopted. Whereas, this noble ship, the Queeu of the West, has now completed her first voy- " age to and from Liverpool, and although on her home pavsagc compelled to contend against constant head winds, with froqitttut utrong runl lu-avy gsl**a, hug not- i withstanding met the most trying emergencies in a triumphant manner, ami with comparative ease, riding the | ocean wave " like a thing of life"?Therefore, Resolved. ( that we-heartily commend this good ship to the public . favor, as in our opinion one of the proudest specimens ol '< naval architecture afloat?unequalled in the extent and elegance of her accommodations for the comfort and con- ' venience of passengers, and unsurpassed in all the substantial qualities of a first rate packet ship.

Philip Woodhouse, ( iu the discharge of his responsible duties, and we tender him the assurance of our highest respect and regard, with the recollections of his uniform kindness and attention to our wants during the passage. We also beg him to accept our best wishes for his future happiness and prosperity. Resolved, that n re|?rt of the proceedings of this j meeting, signed by the cabin passengers, lie presented to Capt.

About seven o'clock this morning, bleak and bil ng as it was, I made niv way in the direction <j he White House, near which the Roman Catholi Jhurch, of St. Matthew, is situated. This sucre uilding has been recently erected. It is a ver >lain, but very neat and sultstuntial oblong strut ure, capable of accommodating perhaps about 100 vorshipjiers, and has the pastor's domicile attache o it, with amnle school rooms for children's Sun lav exercise, beneath. The interior of the church is more free from oi lament than any Homan Catholic place of worshi hat 1 ever suw. When 1 entered, it whs ncarl nil of persons of all colors, the white christian >ccupying the l?ody of the church, and those c >ther shades and hues, the galleries. On the rigli if the altar, a boy held aloft a banner of light bun -ilk, on whieh was painted, in letters of gold 'Mary, the mother of tiod." On and around th' iltar were displayed the usual preparations for th< ervice 01 fftgn Mass, which was then about to b lerformed. The females m the church (white and black W ajl unbonneted, and wore long, Howing veil >f virgin white. The males, among whom I recog lized many ot the most respectable citizens o Vashington. had no peculiarity in their drew I'he day had been net apart for a Sodality niretini >f persons of both sexes and all ages belonging ti he congregation. The Sodality of the blessed Virgin Mary, th< Mother of (rocf and Queen of I'nrity, is a very an ;ient institution. It was first formed in Rome ii .r>W3, and had for its object to collect youths am >lace them under the protection of the holy Virgin n 1SM-I, Pope Gregory the XIII. yielded it hi ipproval, and extended and lamiliol its' uiieii and privi eges. Mince then, succeeding Pontiff* have nourishe ind enriched it by their wisdom, and established It al ivrr the Christian world by their influence and power. In Philadelphia there are several Sodalities, which, o tatcd occasions, invariably meet together. This is th irst and only Sodality that was ever instituted in Wash ngton City, and the object of its meeting to-day wast< ornplete, as it were, its formution, by taking the sacre iromises of the intended Sodnlists and conferring upoi hem their "diplomas." These diplomas, or certificates c nembership, l>ear the sign manual of Hit Holiness th 'ope, and were received a few weeks ago at Baltimore rom Home. At halt-part seven o'clock the service of High Mass com neaced. At the communion of tlio Mass then* wen icnrly five hundred parsons, male and female. The fr nales under their veils and otherwise neatly attired foi he occasion, presented an interesting sight. Previous t< od at intervals during the Mass, the Sodality Society, o t'hicli the majority of the communicants w?re member* ang in beautiful and impressive style, hymns appronriati o tKe service. . , .. At the conclusion of the Ma*?, as usual, the ,>a*tor, Mr )onncllan, retired to the ve?try. He *0011 returned, di* obed of his ve*tmentand surplice, and, from before th? ,ltar, instructed the member* of the Sodality Society, ai 0 the manner in which they should conduct themselvei rhilst they weir making profession of their rule* and re olves. At nine o'clock precisely, the Right. Rev. Samuel Kc leson, Archbishop of Baltimore, enterird the *anctuary ittended by several clergymen, and between twenty mill hirty boyi, dressed in white inrpliccs and black caps, 01 allottes. The Right Reverend official, immediately on li* entry, delivered a brief but impressive uddrei* to tin1 ostulants, in which hi; reminded them of the inviolahlr lattire of the obligation which they were nliont lo impost in them*elves, and exhorted them to perseverance in the aithliil adherence to a practical life of piety and holiness The white male member* of the sodality then moved ii| hrough the centre avenue of the church, ami wronged hemielvc*, iti kneeling |ioiture, along the railing in fronl >1 the altar, each holding a lighted candle in his rlghl and. The Archbishop, supported by a clergyman on each id) stood on the steps of the altar and repeated the IYmi 'rralur. after which the kneeling ]>o*tulent? slowly nn<l arncstly pronounced the formulary, which i* In the*# , onls "Holy Mary, immaculate Virgin, Mother of f>od, I ? , anxious to liecome one of the privileged child' I'll, resolve, on'thi* day, with tin'divine assistance, and olped by thv |w?werful intercesaion, to amend my life, ml imitate thy virtue*, *0 a* to deserve to be received as memberoCthis holy sodality, erected to thy honor and the greater glory of thy divine Son. Amen !" When they had finifhed, the Archbishoji Mid the Tf leum in thanksgiving, at the conclusion of which he in vited then, by name, to rise and cone forward. As one by one they answered, he, with a few words of exhortation, presented them with the diploma, on receiving which thy retired.

J Report mt the Secretary of the Treasury. p Trkasttry Dkpartmknt, Dec. 6, 1843. t Sir?By the act of Congress, approved May 10, ?. 18(10, it is made the duty of the Secretary of the 8 Treasury "to digest, prejmre, and lay before Cont gress, at the commencement of every session, a re.. port on the subject of finance, containing estimates g of the public revenue nnd public expenditures, and y plans for improving or increasing the revenues from time to time." By the act of 26th August, 1812, P the fiscal year ot tne Treasury is directed to comi. nience on the first day of July in each year, begins ning with that day in the year 1813; and it is provid ded that the report and estimates required to he h prepared and laid before Congress at the coint. mencement of each session by the Secretary of the e Treasury, shall be a report and estimates lor each e fiscal year, commencing as aforesaid, and terminating on the thirtieth day of June in the succeeding i ! calendar year. |j In obedience to these laws the following report P is submitted:? The act of 1613 contemplates that estimate* of the recutita 'and expenditures of the fiscal year commencing " 1st July, 1844, should be furnished at the commencement '? of the present session of Congress. They have accordingy ly been prepared, and are herein presented. The estimates for the current fiscal year, commencing Istof July, 1843, were made in December, 1843, so much in advance of the time to which they related that they ,j' were neceasarilv conjectural to a great extent. They can now be rendered more exact by a knowledge of the true state of the Treasury at the commencement of the fiscal year, and by a better acquaintance with the necessil" ties ot the various branches of the public service. Ace cordingly, the dilferent Departments have been requested t to revisc'their respective estimates. Upon the information II thus obtained a corrected account of the actual and esti|i mated receipts and expenditures of the current fiscal year, commencing the 1st of July last, has also been prepared e and is now submitted. In order to fill the chasm in the accounts between thi> l 31st day of December, 184-2, and the lit day of July, 1843, n caused by the change in the fiscal year, and to ascertain n the true balance in tne Treasury on the 1st July, 1843, it I becomes necessary to exhibit a statement of the receipt* :s and expenditures during that time, which is accordingly n presented herein. It will be seen that the axpenditures _ exceeded nnd the receipts fell short of the eatimates for that perio<l. An account of the actjal receipts and expenditures of the calendar year 1843 is alto annexed to this . report, a part of them only having been hitherto submitted to Congress, in which the expenditure* will be found l" classed under general yet distinctive head* of appropriai* tion, so a* to exhibit briefly and intelligibly the subjects to which they have been applind. It i* an abstract of the s warrants issued to the Treasurer pursuant to the appro| priations by Congress, and paid by him. It does not em] brace the trust funds or indemnities, although it does inB elude what are usually called outstanding warrants, which, in fact, are not outstanding, but are fmerely unsettied, having been paid by the Treasurer to the parties who presented them by checks and drafts on the public " depositories and receiver*, but which had not been roy turned atlthe time of the settlement of his accounts, although most, if not all of them, had in fact been paid, y The statements of the receipts and expenditures for the H half year between the 1st of January and the lit of July, .. 1843, and for the first quarter of the new fiical year, are ^ also founded upon the entries in the booki of the Register , ofthe Treasury, and make no distinction between waru rants settled or unsettled. Those itatemeut*. therefore, show accurately the paymenti that have been made ae0 cording to the appropriations by Congress, although all the evidences of those disbursements required by the au8 diting officers may not have reached their offices. - This mode of exhibiting the state of the Treasury has j not always been observed. Tho money apparently in the _ hands of the Treasurer has sometimes been so stated as to leave the imprcision that it was an available balance. ' The average of outstanding warrants, as they are called, e for a series of years, has been deducted from the apparent 1 balance, instead of deducting the exact amount that remained unsettled. Dut when a warrant ha* been issued s to the Treasurer and paid by him, the amount i* effectually it disposed of, and cannot be reached by Congress, whether fi 'he Treasurer'* account of such pay inant in settled or not ' The mode now pursued, therefore, it deemed the projier one to exhibit the amount in the Treasury subject to ap. propriation. This explanation is made, to account for disjl crenancie* that may appear between the statements and 11 tables herewith presented and those in former reports, h These accounts and estimates present a connected seI, rie* from the 1st of Januory, 1842, to the 1st of July, IMS, c and exhibit the operations of the Treasury for the last two | years, (with the exception ol the present quarter) its preg! sent condition, and its future prospects. The results de' duced from them and the views they suggest will now be > presented in the order of time, in respect to the different [teriods to which they relate.
