HlUi i? luiuunuated by the paltry |K>lilicians of both factions?is steadily making groat and rapid progress in his negotiations, and in all those great measures which will effect more for the |>eace, prosperity, and |xrmanent stability of the nation, than has been done by any of his predecessors from the time of Washington. We learn?from the most unquestionable sources j ?several impertant facts in relation to our foreign n"?otiations, which will be highly interesting to the commercial community and the nation at large, at least to all who have any interest in the peace | ;ind welfare of the republic And first in relation I to Great Britain. It has been already stated that Mr. Pakenham, formerly minister from the Court r?f Si. James, at the seat of government in Mexico, liad been appointed in the mission to Washington. This is correct. Mr. Pakenham is expected in Washington about the middle of January. He will take the place of Mr. Fox, who will probably return to England, and close his mission. Mr. Paken ham, it is true, comes over here as the regular minister, butin some respects his is only a special mission, and he may not remain longer than six months The objcct of his coming is to negotiate mlly and finally on the mportant and troublesome nestion of the Oregon Territory; and we have rvery reason to helieve that Ins instructions troin I the British government will be full on that point. | and that under the auspices of President Tyler, that knotty subject, which otherwise might have continued for many years to trouble the country?just ?ts the North-Eastern Boundary question did?will he finally and definitely settled on liberal and enlightened terms, and in a matter satisfactory to both parties. These negotiations will at once and forever o|>en a door for further peaceful negotiations and arrangements of a*commercial nature between this country and England. So much for our relations with England. We are also informed that the negotiation which lias been commenced, ^and of whose commencement we had the first intimation in the report of the Secretary ot State, with the German Union, is making rapid progress, and will probably soon terminate in very successful arrangements. li is also probable, from all accounts, that the mission of Mr. Cushing to China, will be successful to a very remarkable extent. Indeed, it is said that the Chinese government have refused to negotiate with any other foreign power but England; but it is believed there will be an exception made with regard to the United States. The Chinese consider that the United States are p branch of the wire (iccjiir which nave so sign any tnrashed tliem ii the recent war, and believing that a refusal to negotiate with tlie Yankee* would subject them to another drubbing from the red-haired barbarians, they will admit us to negotiate on amicable terms. Thus wc are placed on a more favorable footing with regard to China, than any other foreign l??w<?r. From these movements will be perceived the success?the remarkable and unexampled success? which has attended Mr. Tyler in his negotiations with foreign powers. Indeed we do not despair that we shall have an arrangement and honorable negotiations terminated with Mexico, before the close of this session of Congress : and that by these negotiations, conducted under the auspices ond ; w'wdom of Captain John Tyler, in spite of all that i his detractors of both parties may say against him, nad in spite of the miserable tricks played oil upon him by those" who have held office under him, the honor, peace and security of the Republic will be placed on a sound and permanent basis. Thus the Oregon question?the annexation of Texas?and in fact all the difficult questions of the day which promised to furnish materials for the politicians with which to inflame, and distract, anddivide the l>eople, will be disposed of, and disposed of forever, bv the President before he leaves the White House. Congress will in this way be forced to attend to its own business, and deprived < 1 the weapons and handles wherewithal it hoped to have irritated and disturbed the country, it will be reduced to the necessity of attending to its special business?the modification of the tariff, and the other ^important questions respecting our domestic affairs. In this view of the important negotiations now in the hands of the Executive, it is very probable ihat the Senate may confirm the principal Cabinet appointments now before them, with the exception if some of the minor ones, that should not, under any circumstances, escape rejection. Not, indeed, 'hat any of them deserve to be confirmed, but be?ause the .Senate may not wish to throw any difficulty in the way of the President with regard to the construction of hi* Cabinet. But it is very evident to any one who has been an impartial and calin spectator of the events which have occurred during the las ftw years, and who now reflects iij>on the facts we have detailed, that the evening "t John Tyler's presidency will shine with a lustre far beyond the brilliancy of its mid-day. He has, indeed, been too honest and two simple-hearted for tlie age, und for the troou* of ooiitiral Lii7?rr>n?> who crowded about him when they found that lie hud offices to bestow The deceptions practised upon hun by those who called themselves his friends?in which category we include Messrs. iinnxhaw. Porter. Spencer, and all their attarh{t]in the various cities?have been gross, astounding, and , disgraceful; not less so even than the furious and violent abuse of both Whigs and Locofocos?abuse which has been poured out upon him without intermission for two years past. But the genuine character of the President begins to emerge from that mass of corruption with which if has hitherto been surrounded. We have littJe doubt that the remainder of his term of office will present a picture, in which the patriotic and the rood of tins and future i:?n"rations will gaze with profit, pleasure, and ?ra11 tude.

There may h ive been something like it in the Arabian Nights entertainment, hut there's nothing been seen in rhissober city before, like tin- settle at I Vauxhall harden last night. A thousand lamps glimmering among the tree.-?a hundred banners waging?a vast multitude of the " young dentocracie"?the music of a full bond?and over all the young moon beaming in all her virgin modesty, smiling complacently on the scene as she quietly pursued her way iu the calm, star-bespangled sky, one which a few majestic clouds quietly touched by her silvery [light, were Hitting like good spirits hastening to some great occasion of rejoicing.? There could not have been less than ten thousand human beings, of all ranks and sizes, in the garden. And such ell\liil.-l,t.>lll?slicll reioii-inir?mieti ulimif. ing?such singing?such delicious little hits of speeches?si>eeches on the platform, and under every tree in the garden! This celebration was rather, as we have already intimated, a festive gathering than an exclusively political meeting, although the object primarily, was to promote the elevated and patriotic principles of the American Republicans. The various wards,having lately held meetingsin their respective localities it was determined that on this occasion the patuoU should assemble in the aggregate, and accordingly each ward marched in processional order, preceded by (lags and torches, and accompamcd by band** ot music i-crt'orming exhilarating strains. On inarching into (lie spacious grounds it was soon found that the multitude was too immense to be addressed with any degree of comfc>rt or effect, by any of the speakers; consequently it was resolved that three meetings should he organised, the proceedings to be conducted simultaneously. This plan was put into immediate operation; the crowd divided into thrue sections with the precision of u regiment of regulars; the main body occupied the principal stand opposite the house, and at two opposite points, in the rear, the other parties assembled. I hrer each <>t tlie.-e great bodies tin- American (lags waved in proud superiority over the numerous banners by which it was surrounded. Surrounding and upon each platform were eloquent orators and patriotic and enthusiastic auditors. Ever ana anon trom me magnificent band which was stationed in the centre of the garden, came loud and full bursts of inspiring music ; then there were heard from the different stands again the voices of the speakers, who could scarcely utter two consecutive sentences by reason ot the boisterous enthusiasm of the multitude, which could not be restrained, and which vented itself in all imaginable sorts of shouts, exclamations, and the accustomed demonstrations of popular feeling. The following are tne names of the officers ujion the first and second stands:? President. MANGLK M. QUACKKNBOSS. Vice Piiehidents. K. K. Collins, K. \V. Chester, J. D. Carpenter, John G.

U^lu Ree aud Cook contributed much to the enjoyment of the evening by some admirable singing. The only business^ done was the readinir of the following .tddress. The speeches t>v which it w.ts preceded and followed, contained notlii.ii!? new, therefore we do not deem it necessary to s.iv more about them than that they were full of the genuine American spirit. The CJeneral Kxerutive Committee of the American Hepublican Party l>eg leave to present te the public the following brief summary of the principle* of thin party :? Th* American Republican party hold that the naturalization laws should be so altered as to require o! all foreigners, who may hereafter arrive in this country, a residence of at least twenty-one years, before they ?>liall have the privilege of the elective franchise. This they believe to be absolutely necessary to the welfare of the country, and the perpetuity of it* institutions. At the time of' the passage ot the iirst naturalization laws, our country attracted comparatively but little notice in the world and as our ancestor* Wed to thi< land to escape the ]>ersecutions and bad government of the old world, and as we had an abundance of wild and uncultivated land, it was supnosed that easy terms of citizenship would be advantageous to the country and a blessing to the oppressed It was not then supposed that vast numbers of aliens?the majority of whom are ignorant, superstitious, and vicious?would in a few years be cast upon our shores j thev evwted the industrious, \ irtuous and tho-e who, like ifiein selves, had been unjustly oppressed at home, would seek for refuge in this land of freedom ; but, insteal ot these, the persecutors, and not the i>er?ecuted. have come?the idle, worthless, and profligate ; and eveu the alms-houses and prisons of Kurope have been almost emptied on our shores. In bringing this about, the easy terms of citizenship, and the emoluments of office nnv?r imu no xiTiaii snare 01 innuence ; tne numtier 01 these persons is daily inn-casing to an alarming extent ; their influence ii already groat, anil is constantly becoming greater. To live in idleness in our alms-houses at the nubile expense?or in public office, and attend to the |>olitical affairs of the country, and changing the very institutions which have made it so attractive, and shape them to conform with their own views of religion and republican government?is apparently their principal object. Could the framers of our naturafi/atiou laws have foreseen this, the law could never have been passed : the experiment has been tried, and its destructive effects fully proved. We therefore advocate the repeal of our naturalisation laws ; and in doing so, we do no injustice ; we seek the greatest good for the greatest number, and violate no personal rights?Infringe no jwsitive or implied compact. Kvery community lias an undoubted right to refuse to adopt aliens, or prescribe its own terms of adoption. If they had not, there could be no national identity?no necessity for naturalisation laws of anv kind; every mail would then be a citizen of the world, endowed with tinivenal riaht <>l suffrage. This, none will maintain Then, if we have a national identity, we must have laws njion the subject, and prescribe a* probationary time to citi/cnship. Lot us, then, make those laws, and that time to answer the purpose intended. It is well known that the present naturalization laws are so loose and defective II, ?? ,1 I _l. ? ...i? 1 -m-' not been in the co ntry the required time, or, if the) ] have.nre totally unfit to l>e endowed with the privileges of I American citiz.en*?particularly the right of veting and holding ottice. We hold that alien* a* a matter of favor, and not of right, may be admitted to citizenship : thev havenoclaim upon us for the privilege ; but we are willing to concede a cjaim upon our humanity, to l>e allowed to reiide among u?, and participate in the'blessing* of our f overnment; and to this claim we aie ready to respond Ve are willing to give them a home, and permit them to trade?to till the soil for their own benefit, and engage in the various professions; and to acquire and hold property, both raal and personal ; and to partake equally with ourselves of theheneflts of our public improvement* and charitable institutions ; and while we grant them this, we are unwilling to lay upon them any greater burden* than we ourselves War. ThU is all tfial their necessities or comforts demand . and this all our interest will allow. And foi this extension of lilierality, wc think, instead of reproaches, we may justly look for grateful acknowledgments We (ix upon twenty -one Tear*, because it i* the term of pupilage we and our children Huhmit to, and we believe it short? nough for a thorough Republican education ? 'J This party maintain that Native Americans only should only be appointed to otfice--to legislate, administer, or execute tne law* of our country. There i* no othei countr) thai grants the nrhti of citizenship as freely and fully a* we do. In Kngland, aliens may be naturalized . but it must be by an act of parliament, which places them in the same situation us native born auhjects, eicept that they are for ever inca|>ah!e of being member * of the privy council or serving in parliament, or of holdi ni* urir (tiliro trnal iin/t?r Mm ^rnurn ur?/l Ioh-* t\1 Kngland on thia fubject are the mo*t liberal of any EuroI >ean ^government ; while under our lawn, all naturalized citizen* have an equal right to hold office with the nativehorn, except a* respect* the office* of Preiident and Vice Prciiilent; and latterly, it would ?cem, they have led themielve* to coniider the office* of thi* coun try their own prerogative. This ha* grown to a great evil, and the ?ooner it i* eradicated the better . it wa* not what wa* expected by the framer* of the low*, In admitting adopted citizen* to hold office ; it wa* *uppo*ed that a de cent modetty, II nothing el*e. would have induccd them to leave the office* to the American people, and they would have permitted u* to manage otir own affair*?enact and execute our own law*, in our own land, in our own way, M long at their |>erion? and property were protected, an-l no ?li*tinctiori made in thi* re*pect Iwtween the adopt) 1 and native-born Citizen*. Sentiment* like the?e, have, however, had but \erv little influence upon their minds ; but, viper-like, thev have tinned upon the hand that nouriibed tnem, and boldly a**ert their right to hold any plar? under government, even to the exrbiaion of the nativeborn. They say they are citizen* by choice, and we by accident ; and, consequently, of the two, they ma) ).< Inuted with more aertlrity, and therefore ahou'ld lie preferred We are then compiled, either to assert our *ni>ei ior right, and maintnjn our institution*, or live und<-rth.< arrogant Maumptioti Wa appeal to American* to decide Breathes then- a man with soul ?o dead, Who never to himself hath ?ai<l, This is my own, my native land ? <) 3. This party hold that the Bible.without note or comment, ii not sectarian; that it is the fountain-head of morality and good government, and should be used in our public schools as a reading book , that the Common school law should be repealed, and the I'ublic School law should be re-enacted in Its stead ; and that a union of < hurch and State, in any form, is dangerous to the liberties of the people, and subversive of the rights of conscience. The go\ernment ol this country is republican ; the very first principle of a republican government is, that the people are the source of all power. Kvery citizen, then, is a sovereign; the young are the future'sovereigns of this country. The sovereigns of other countries are educated with a view to theii future station and duties. Is it not important, then, for us to determine whether the future sovereigns of this country shall lie enlightened or remain in ignorance.' The people here bear rule. If they are ignorant, they are unlit to rule. Every individual, therefore, should be educated; and inasmuch as past experience proves that popular education cannot salely be relied on, out w ill surely 1m; neglected, if left to the unqualified or indifferent ; therefore, it is absolutely necessary that it should bo placed under the care anil patronage of government. This is now the settled nolicy of this State, aud it commends itself to very intelligent ntinil. But what is the purpose of the State in this matter fewhat should it he? Not principally, if at all, to benefit the individual, or the family, or the clans, or the sect educated; no one has aclaim on government for such an end. It is very true, that the patronage of government, in this resjiect, is ol great personal benefit to many; but it is 'not lor this purpose that the State educates the rising population, but lor the sake of its own self-preservation. This is a lit object for which it may use the people's money?to prepare the children of the land for ttie laithl'ul un l competent discharge of their future political, social,and publicduties. Inview of this principle, 110 man, orset of men, have a right to say that the State shall educate their children in any such manner us would not comport with the grand object; and 110 political party, and much less has any sect any right to interpose to defeat that object; and less still has any person or persons a right to demand that any course should be introduced or omitted, which would tend either to a wrong or defective educational the children of others in the State. No man has a right to educate his own children, even in'his own house, in opposition to law or good morals, as such an education would lead to treason. Education, then is n?t only necessary, but it must be aright education?otherwise, there had better be none? for a had education is likeputtiug a sword into the hands of a giant maniac, who not only lias the strength, but the skill to use it effectually. The education of the children, then, should be moral as well as intellectual. It is commonly conceded that (>opular intelligence and popular virtue are indispensable to the existence and continuance of such a government as ours ; the character of the public ,. ;il v.. >1 c _? Every man who has say voice or influence in public art'airs in bound to inform himself and act honestly. II one man may be ignorant or dishonest,then ail may; and whenever this is the case in a republic, the government being in the hands of a majority, will become the most oppressive and odious of all tyrannies, and hasten to a violent conclusion. Every child, then, should receive an intellectual, historical, and moral education ; and the State, if it cducate at all, is bound to give the best education it can for the purposes intended. Consequently, the books containing the best moral lessons and accurate histories should be used in their schools. The Bible is acknowledged by all to be the source of all good morals, both public and private; and, as a history, contains an authentic narrative of vvents the most extraordinary and interesting any where recorded of our race : as such, it is invaluable ; and there is not, nor never can be, any thing to supply its place. And shall we deprive our youth of sucn a clastic I Why ? The answer is, that it contains something against my religion. Then manifestly your religion must do opposed to the best interests of "the Stat?. Must we ariveout of our public schools an indispensable class-book to please a sect ! What could more easily involve the principles of that dangerous union, Church and State ' The Common School law, now in operation in this city, brings with it all these evils. Under this law, the Bible nas been banished from several schools, and the best histories mutilated, nml ikiiutsniroa ctri/?L-?.r? nut wKif?Vi u-tiro fn 3 nor. ticular sect; while, under the law known as the Public School law, there were none of these evils ; and the system of education was uniform throughout the city, and justly the pride of its inhabitants. We therefore shall advocate the repeal of the former, and the re-establishment of the latter. The party hold that a thorough reform in our city government is necessary; that there is, and has been for many years, great extravagance and wasteful expenditure of the people's money, incurring both debt ana taxation to an alarming extent. The city of New York contains a population of three hundred and fifty thousand inhabitants; the yearly expenditure of the city government is two millions or dollars, about tlfty times as great as the whole expenses of the State of New Jersey, which has an equal population. It may be said that the city is subject to several expenses that a State is not. Admit it; but, still, who will believe that there exists a necessity for so large a difference.'' No one! All complain of abuses and wasteful expenditure; none are found to defend them; and none, as yet, have been?found 'toc<*rect them. Great professions are made, just before an election, of retrenchment and reform In this matter by both the whig and demooratir parties; but upon trial, it has always been found that the interest felt for party has overcome the previous good determinations, if they ever had any. Notwithstanding the enormous expenses at whirh the governmi-nt is administered, it is universally acknowledged that the interests of the citv are not ntw-nAixl to tw thrr ahmilH be The city debt now amounti to twelve millions of dollars, and is constantly increasing, and the taxes also increasing. If the money raised waa faithfully, economically, and judiciously applied, and the tax-payer could gee* some prospect of tne city debt being finally extinguished, be would not complain ; several of our citizens have despaired of ever seeing any reform in thin mattur, and have moved into neighboring cities to escape the great taxation of this. An attempt to particularize the numerous abuses, would take more space than could be properly spared in an address : for they enter into almost, if not quite, every department of the city government. The great and small are alike guilty, and seem to consider the city funds their own property, and he is the most patriotic who secures the most to himself. But, for example, we will mention one of these abuses ; it is the unparalleled expenditure of about two hundred thousand dollars per annum for the support of the almshouse department ; and it is well known who are the recipients of this charity. We are thankful that they are not Americans! N'o. As long as an American can, by honest toil, earn his daily bread, his proud nense of independ enc.ewill never allow him to become a participant of public charity. They are foreign paupers, whom American citiiens'are compelled to sup|>ort ; while all the labor thev perform is twice a year to put their vote* in the ballot-boxe* for the demagogue* who secure their comfortable quarteri, and thui nullify the vote* of honest, independent citizen*, and frustrate all efl'ort* at reform. The whig and democratic parties have both had opportunities enough to remedy these, abuse*, and neither have done it. To whom, then, are we to look for reliei f Surely, not to them again. and e*n?rially not during the comingjyear.when a Presidential election is to take placewhen every nerve will be strained, and every device resorted to, to carry out partymeasuresjwhen tne patronage of the city government could lie effectually used to subserve .party end*?certainly not at *uch a time could we expect these partie* to commence the work ol reform, and curtail ex|>enses. No ! Then to whom Khali we look ? Is there any other party that has not yet been tried?that has not the le temptations to extravagance? We answer emphatically, yes! The American Republican Tarty, which was brought iuto existence in consequence of the corruption of other parties, especially for reform ! Thi* party, which acknowledges no leader but the people, and has no Presidential candidate may. with lafety, be relied upon to adminiiter the airairs of the city government in the most economical and faithful manner. The people, *urely, can trust themselve* ; and this, of all parties, i* the peoples' party. We have now briefly stated the principles of tni* party ; they commend themselves to the good sense and patriotism of every American. We ask the *upport of the patriotic and virtuous in their behalf, no matter what have heretofore been your party preference* ; and judging from the manly support given to them at the recent election, we have no doubt of their ultimate triumph All which is reapectfully submitted. 1 THOMAS 1IOOAN, F.DWIN F. CORKY, .1 W HAVAI5F JOB HA9KKLL, J. J. R. DV PUY. The assembly dispersed under the pnnie feelings of enthusiasm as those by which the proceedings had been characterised; and we are happy to say there was not a single person seen suffering from anv of the accidents of these festive occasions. The next Mass Meeting of the American Reimblicans will be held in the same place in a snorl period. By the way, we would just mention to the intending speakers on that occasion, that they must he prepared to throw out some new and bold ideas. We snail, however, revert to this subject in a day or two, and give them the materials perhaps for half a dozen of these Mass Meetings. Theatrical and Ulnilrsl. 11. Viei'xtkmps i* town fkom Boston.?We understand that Mr. H. Vieuxtemps will arrive in town to-day from Boston. He is engaged tojt|>l>ear to-morrow niglit at the J'ark Theatre. The visit^of this truly classical artist to Boston has been eminently successful. In one week he gave three crowded concerts, clearing probably nearly $3000 by the whole. He has been most enthusiastically applauded by the musical and fashionable people of Hnston?and is placed by them in the highest rank of art. Now let the real friends of music give him a warm reception here. The Barber of Seville, La Somnambula, and the Postillion of Lonjumeau were being pluyed last week at the American Theatre, in New Orleans, with great success ; and the performances of Mr. and Mrs. Seguin and Mr. Shrivall are highly spoken of by the papers published there. Marry Placide took a benefit at the St. Charles Theatre, New Orleans, on Friday. Keceipts considerable. The Arnold* are giving concert* at Charleston. Theatricals at Cincinnati arc doing pretty well. The different theatres in the States appear to have made considerable preparation for their Christman amusements. N'ot Attkxmcd.?Gliddon's lectures on the Annuities of Kgvpt.

We hail your approach as the ' precursor of our happy holidays, as the day when ' we meei with hearty welcome from our friends, with all the glorious pros|>ects of a new and unclouded year to come, and with all the appliances of eating, drinking and being merry. A bright, unclouded sky welcomed the anniversary of timehonored Christmas, and the respective castes in our goodly city paid their devoirs to the objects of their amusement or devotion. The saints, strong in number, sang praises at their several places of worship, and the sinners, not less mighty, patronized the billiard, bowling, and drinking saloons in a most liberal manner during the day. But the evening! then came the great attraction for old and young. The 1'ark, owing to reduced prices, was patronized for a holiday night, well, and seemed to smile maliciously for the time at those who have told of its fading glories. The Chatham, as usual, was filled to its utmost capacity with an enthusiastic audience, who welcomed each actor, as he appeared, with a hearty " merry Christmas." Mitchell's, we scarcely need say> was lull to repletion, and the representatives oi Monus again delighted, by the mirth provoking plays, the immense crowd who [witnessed them. Nihlo's was filled with a most fashionable audience, and North and Turner, the heroes of ths ring, displayed unwonted feats of grace and daring horsemanship. The museums were, of course, in full blast, and by the united adjuncts of glaring lamps, banners, gipsey girls, fat negroes, and Tom Thumb, were enabled to pocket plenty of shillings. The watch houses were duly visited by a few of the votaries of Bacchus, who persisted in potations " pottle deep," and others of the swell and fancy who exercised their respective calling with great industry; in fine, Christmas is a day to be remembered when past, and to be anticipated in the future as the only one which gives free scope to the various tastes of all our citizens in their several vocations of eating, drinking, praying, singing psalms, ice. Curiosities ok Literature.?In replv to the attacks of the "Portland Tribune," Mr. N. P. Willis haspublished a long manifesto, which establishes the very important fact that poets do pay their tailois' bills, it has long been a standing libel against the fraternity that the only currency which they gave in exchange for food and raiment, and their attic, was the sterling coinage of the brain. But this has now met triumphant refutation. Read? (Copy.) N. P. Willis, K?q. has hail several articles of dre?? from our establishment, ana has always paid punctually on the presentation of the bills. WM. T. JKNNINUS & CO., Merchant Tailors, 331 Broadway. Mr.Willis publishes, in addition to this, the certificates of Coleman and Stetson, and others with whom he has had business connections, and all demonstrate in the clearest manner that he is, what all who know him are well aware of, an honorable and worthy man in every sense of the term. The attack of the Portlaiui Tribune was indeed very mean and very vile. But after all, what do the public care whether poets pay or do not pay their tailor, bootmaker, washerwoman, and landlady 1 Not a whit do they care; they never did, and they never will. Willis writes beautiful poetry ?the public know it?and gratefully receive and treasure his poetry. Hut he may starve for all ine uear, gniit'iuj, uueciiunaie jiulmic care uduui (he matter. He writes* capital story?few write a9 well?and that the public very cheerfully acknowledge?but still they don't care a straw whether he pay or do not pay Messrs. Wm. T. Jennings & Co. The fact is simply this: Willis writes poetry well? he writes stories well?he dresses well?he pay* well?but he don't lecture well. " Nat is a good writer?but he can't preach." The Foi'rierites a*d Oi?e Brr?l.?The French cliques here having failed completely to write down Ole Bull, and persuade the whole community thai he was not mi\ch of an artist after all, it seems that a new sect in metaphysics and music have taken up the same theme, and we perceive that the Fourierites or Transcendentalists are out in the lYibitne lor the same purpose. The Transcendental critics have a very curious way of proving that Ole Bull is no genius at all; and after a whole column, filled with very pretty words, in grammatical places, and embracing almost every subject under heaven, they have come to the conclusion that he has " the fire ol zeal but not superior genius!" Here are a few " calm and dispassionate criticisms"?" based evidently" upon a "strictly analytical and scientific foundation !!"?" passion of a moral order"? "false and subversive order of development"? " themes of subversive nassion"?" r??nt ut> and compressed condition"?" irregulur excitement"? "counterfeited oscellations?" irreflective and re Hective zeal"?"subversive passion of romance," (tec. ttec. See. These are some of the exceedingly clear expressions and criticisms which the Transcendentalism or Hie Fourierites, throw out in explaining fully the talent and genius of Ole Hull, or rather to prove tlut he has no genius at all. One thing is certain, however, if Ole Bull would take up his violin and give the public only one simple air, one solitary melody, it would subvert in an instant all the criticisms of the Fourierites, the Transcendentalists, or the Frenchmen in a lump; in a word it would be as overwhelming a defeat as that of the battle of Waterloo.

The lattei wan married to a resectable woman of about thirty year? of nge, w ho had borne him three children, and wan within three months of her next confinement.

Oil Thuriday, the 'J.ld ult., at eight o'clock at night, the poor, worn-out creature was taken by her husband and the blacksmith priest down to the river below the work*, wa> denuded of all her clothing except a small flannel Ringlet, and, notwithitandmg her interesting munition, their wretched fanatic*, after muttering *ome incantation*, plunged her into the strenm.

Dear Sir The last two days have been gala days for the abolitionists. It is now demonstrated, that after a struggle of nearly ten years, Mr. Adams will get the obnoxious 23d rule rescinded, and have abolition petitions by the ship load presented to the House. Mr. Wise has given uji in despair, und clothing himself in the " mantle of the prophet," predicts all kinds of dire calamities?to which Father Miller's day of judgment, now close at hand, will be but a tempest in a teapot. Mr. llolines declares, however, he will neither give up the struggle nor yield to despair. Although he sees the wave rolling on front the rocky mountains to the Alleghanies, and from the AUeghanies to the Atlantic shore, he will buckle on his armor and tight for the Constitution and the Union. " Sam WeiiMf" f\f Oliin uwnrp hv Iiimfpr TunPIlH. tllflt h#* would pour into the strife the tremendous force of his energies. Francis P. Blair, the western savage, is mad, or nearly so; and if his friends don't hold him he will tight. In fine, the devil's to l>av, and no mistake. To-day the combat was renewed with increased fury. Mr. Adams, after several attempts to choke hi in oft", was permitted to reply to the remarks of Messrs. Wise and Holmes, and to debate the reception and reference of the resolutions from the Massachusetts Legislature, praying for an amendment of the constitution in relation to slave representation in Congress. The " old man eloquent" walked into his opponents in grand style?was rejoiced that Mr. Wise had become *b tritr as to see the error of his former course on this subject, and begged of Mr. Holmes on no account to be so blood-tnirsty. He had talked of buckling on his sword; but Mr. A. hoped it would not be the fabled sword of "sharpness," nor that of Orlando frurioso. He assured the member tfrom South Carolina that the House was not a place to fight, but to deliberate, and besceched him to throw himself back on his sober second thought, and preserve peace? peace was best. In this way he went on for half an hour, flinging with a reckless hand, his sarcasms in every direction. Weller and Charles J. Ingersoll he lashed without mercy, and without stint lie spoke for an hour, and, during the whole time, the House was hushed to complete silence. The most intense interest was excited, and both in the galleries and in the House earnest anxiety to catch every word which fell from the old gentleman's lips was depicted on every countenance. The members, as many as could get, clustered in groups around him; others stood in their places, and, with cocked ears, bent forward in eager attitude; the ladies stretched their beautiful heads and necks over the gallery to see and hear him; Dixon II. Lewis cleared out, and Mr. Bhett, of South Carolina, went quietly to sleep on one of the sofas in the lobby. Senators Wright, Berrien, Bates, and Atherton, looked on and philosophised, chewing the cud of reflection. The whole scene was picturesque, grand, sublime, and imposing. After Mr. Adams had finished, _Mr. Geddingst of Ohio, desired to have the nrivilege of explanation extended to him. But the House was in no humor for stale beer after champagne?so it refused to hear him. This was petition day. An immense number were presented, praying for post office reform, and some modification, if not repeal, of the franking privilege. One from Rochester stated that it took 182 cents to convey u letter from that city to Albany, while it only took 17 cents to transport a barrel of Hour the same distance. Certainly the glaring nature of the former tax could not be more forcibly contrasted. The House adjourned over until Tuesday, to give the members time to recover from the cnects of their Chrismas festivities. For the last two days the Catholics of St. Matthew's church have held a fair in Carruci's saloon. The variety, beauty, and usefulness of the articles got up by the ladies of the congregation, was only surpassed by the beauty and grace ot the fair creatures themselves. The proceeds of this Christmas fair goes to defray the expenses of building a domicile for the pastor of the church. The public gardner, James Maher, Esq., intends giving a great dinner on the 8th of January next, provided the House of Representatives pass the bill refunding to General Jackson the fine levied on hiiy at New Orleans on that day. Every democrats member has been invited. A committee ol no less than 76 will be apnointed to make suitable arrangements. The President, Heads of Departments, the several corps diplomatique, officers of the army and navy, clerks in all the public offices, and gentlemen connected with the press, will all receive a card of invitation, and a glorious blow out is anticipated. It is expected, after passing the bill, the House will adjourn to dinner, and at night a great ball will come oft". It is to be a day of glory and good eating, fun. ironc, music, me aance, joy, ana rejoicing, and lustice to General Jackson. The President has been unwell, and confined to his loom for two days. Wier's painting of the Embarkation of the Pilgrims, was put up to-day in its appropriate panel, in the Kotunda of the Capitol. Although the day was very wet and disagreeable, multitudes flocked to see it. Nothing as vet has transpired of the Senate's secret doings. The long delay in confirming the cabinet appointments, gives rise to doubt on the mat( r. Henshaw, Porter, Gushing, and Proffit, some affirm Nelson, it is said to-day, will he rejected. There is something in the wind, for John Jones is most particularly wrathy. He foams at the mouth, ;ind folks are afraid he will bite somebody. ? Quasimodo. Washington.

He takes Mr. Fox's place for the special purpose ol settling the Oregon cjuention here at Washington.? A.nd there is reason to hojie it will be amicably adjusted. Mr. Tyler lias nothing to consult but the ?ood of the conntry, and no man is better qualified than Mr. Secretary Upshur to negotiate the treaty. It is confidently asserted here at Washington, that Mr. Wise has been nominated to France, ana his name sent into the Senata. Hut 1 would recommend people to believe that his name has not yet been sent in. The Senate has very many nominations before them?enough to last them until after the holidays. Speculation is rife respecting Judge Thompson's successor, and as great interest is felt about the matter, I have taken pains to ascertain as near the truth as possible. There is reason to believe that the difficulty of electing a suitable candidate will be great, and that the President has made up no opinion yet. S. B. Amusement n.
