I On t'riday evening,Mrs. Richard S. Coxe gnvc a t splendid imrty. Mrs. Coxe is the wife of the clo* quent and learned lawyer whose name we so often L> see in the reports of the arguments before the Soil preme Court of the United States; and the associp aliens consequent upon his distinguished profes,f sional position und estimable private character, lillu ed his drawing rooms with the most select assenti, blagc tintt has graced any of the parties hitherto. |i To say that Mrs. Coxe was a daughter of that i- eminent merchant and worthy man, the lute John r G.

There is u furious controversy going on in the papers here, between tin officer in the army and un * officer in the navy, to determin* to which of them belongs the discovery that the best way to defend ' our commerce in the Gulf of Mexico, is to build " and arm vessels on the Ohio attd Mississippi!

A long article upon this subjeel, from the pen of Col.

A Mr. Crcenhow, or Greenhorn, the librarian of r the State Department, (in the receipt of a large salc ary,) has found time to write, or rather to compile, y a nook upon t iregon. It is now in course of publi' cation, and during the debate on the Oregon ques,l tion in the Senate, Mr. Archer had the bad taste " to propose that the Senate suejiond all action upon jj this subject until the book should be placed in the hands of Senutors. Mr. Benton replied?" I be.. lieve I can inform the Senator from Virginia, that i- 1 have seen and read, ami know more than cun be written on this subject by Mr. Greenhow, or more " tluin that gentleman ever beard of it." lie might l" added that Mr. Archer, as chairman of tlie commitr" tee on Foreign Affairs, having heard this question so often discussed, must really have been at bis n wits' end for ail argument, when lie udduced the IS forthcoming of this book of Greenhow, (Greenj. born,) as a reason for delaying, even for one hour, ir the twelve months' notice our government is bound to give Great Britain before we take possession ol il Oregon?in which, however, the Knglisli (the ino" dern Romans), have, in fact, anticipated us; for ) with the forts and strong garrisons of the Hudson rj Bay Company, tliejr have at this moment actual,t ly military possession of Oregon, and we arc about to have a protracted negotiation as to tile right of o possession. ?- The Baltimore American says of the nomination of Mr. Wise to Brazil:?"Tliis nomination will [j* probably be confirmed, as there are not the MM ijj objections to sending Mr. Wise to Brazil tliui there ?j were to sending him to France." Indeed, is then Mr. Wise's knowledge of the Poituguese language n- and Brazilian 'utfalrs so inuoh superior to his of French lore, or have these people not brains enough ie to know, or honesty enough to declare, that whigs and democrats would loin willi the utmost cordiality to reject Wise, aid not the dread of his inter'j ference in making every prominent |?oliticiHii in the House define his position in regard to abolition, bank, tariff, and every other stibiect on'which both y, parties are so tender, as the Presidential election a approaches. And they wish to get rid of him with i? hk little honor and pleasure to himself as they can c" in anv way manage. Still, however. Ins services in Brazil may he of i(l great service to liis country, and he maybe able, to confirm the Brazilian ministry in their rcpeated,'rt ly expressed determination, not to enter into a n. commercial treaty with Cnglaiid?based upon jc what that (aiwer is pleased, jocosely, to term "the t, principles of humanity"?which, being interpreted, means that Brazil shall put a slop to the slav< trade, '8 lions of slaves England has in the East Indies may ,r become more profitable, and that Brazil shall ucf.

There never n- was a time when our interest more loudly called ? for fearless, incorruptible men to represent us abroad. Oh! this English gold, that front the duys of Sir Hubert Walpule to those of Sir Hobert J.j Peel, has been her most formidable weapon. The name of Sir Hobert Walpole reminds me ot a H, story I heard related of him the other day by a n- clever mail:?"A lady, the proprietor of several n- boroughs, whose members in Parliament always n- voted with the ministry, was rallied about her ol venality; she resolutely affirmed she had never received money from the Ministry. This was re|ieateil to Sir Hobert. lie said that it was true; but, ?l added he, her desire lor diamonds is insatiable." n I see by your extracts from English papers, that it the degrees and liunors lavished upon Mr. Everett, 5e (the unfrocked priest, as Senator Benton enlls >e him,) have been deelared illegal.

It is now n slain on our society, that the churming and agreeable married young ladies and gentlemen, do not take the stand which in ull good society abroad is exclusively occupied by tbeni. We have adopted many sensible foreign customs, and some ridiculous ones; among those who would give the greatest eclat anil brtlliaucy to our society, would be the custom for the married ladiesto take the first place, and to retain it. All would lie gainers by it; for the hoys and the girls would learn Imili manners and conversation, which now they arc sadly in want of, and never can attain sooner than by attending to those whose experience and education have imparted to them spirit, quickness of conversation, and brilliancy and elegance of manners.
