NEW YORK HERALD. M.w Tiffc, Thundtr, lurch ?. 1IM. News bv thk Caledonia.?We shall publish an Extra Herald in thirty minutes after we receive the news by the Caledonia. It may he here this morning. Mr Webster's Arrival?'Texas Question. Mr. Webster is now in this city. He arrived here two days ago, and will probably remain for several days. We understand he is lull of the Texas ((uestion, and talks very openly and strongly against that measure, in pretty much the same strain with the letter from his pen recently published in New England. A number of his Iriends have been about him ever since his arrival, and to all of them he gives positive assurances, that the Texas treaty has 110 chance of receiving the constitutional vote of the Senate, or ol involving the foreign relations of the country. lie does not deny, however, that this will be the principal question of the day, in Congress and out of it, for discussion, and that the fate of the two parties in the next Piesidential election may hang upon the course they pursue in relation to it. It is very evident, from all appearances?from all the developments in the journals here and elsewhere?from the givings out of the friends of Mr. Webster?that this movement in opposition to the annexation of Texas now made by hun, is intended to be a great card, not only in the next election, but for the succession to the Presidency. According to all appearances, Mr. Webster was apprised from the commencement of the negotiat ons of what was going on; but it seems that he did not precipitate the development of that movement until after the death of Mr. Upshur?until after there was no chance left of his getting back into the State Department to wield the questions of the day in subserviency to his own popularity?until Mr. Calhoun was nominated and approved of by the Senate. Then Mr. Webster took up his position openly and publicly at once. On the first bursting of this great gun last week, it is well known that a tremendous panic took place in the stock and money market, thereby knocking down like nine pins many of the particular friends of Mr. Webster, who are speculators on the bourse of New York and other great cities. This lamentable result was not anticipated, but when manv of the poor brokers were knocked down, they began to consider that they had been a little too hasty in the explosion, and that it was necessary to make the Texas question one merely oi aomesuc poncy, auecung, not our ioreign relatione, but merely the political parties throughout the country. With this view, we believe, Mr. Webster and his friends have succeeded in quietiag the fears of the monied classes with the amplest assurances that in no contingency is there a chance for the Texas treaty passing the Senate, and thereby involving the foreign relations of the country, but that the whole controversy will be confined to the two parties in the Senate and the House, and be an internal question, merely affecting the rise and fall of parties or ol stocks. Now, in this point of view?a narrow view|indeed?it seems very reasonable to expect that there will be a great deal of bitterness of feeling, andhhat both parties,whiis and locofocos, at Washington, must show their hands on this question, which has been sprung upon them by Mr. Tyler; and that we may also expect to see during the remainder of the session, a great deal of cflort, to make the most of it, on all sides. In the meantime, it appears that the opposition to the Texas question is not to be confined to the stump orators and hack politicians. The poets of New Hngland are going dead against it, and the first blast appears in the Botton Courier?the organ of Mr. Webster's party. Here it is:? A Kallylng Cry for Mew England, against tile Annexation of Texas, [or A ta.vxf.e ] Route up, New-England ! Buckle on your mail of proof sublime, Your stern old bate ol tyranny, your deep contempt of crime ; A traitor plot is hatching now, more full ol woe and thame, Than ever from the iron heart ol bloodiest despot came ! Six slave States added at a breath ' One flourish of a pen, And fetters shall be rivetted on millions more of men '. One drop of ink to ?ign a name, and slavery shall find For all her surplus flesh and blood a market to her mind ! A market where good Democrats) their fellow-men may sell O, what a grin of fiendish glee runs round and round through hell! How all the damned leap up for joy and (half forget their fire, To think'men take such pains to claim the notice of Ood's " ire ! Is t not enough that we have borne the sneer ol all the world, And bent to those whose haughty lips in scorn of us are curl'd 7 It t not enough that we must hunt their living chattels back, And cheer the hungry bloodhounds on that howl upon their track 7 It't not enough that we must oow to all that they de These cotton and tobaci.o lords, these pimps or slavery ? That we must yield our ^conscience up to glut Oppression^ maw, And break our faith with Ood to keep the letter of Man's law 7 But must we sit in silence by, end see the chain and whip Made lirmer for all time to come in Slavery's bloody grip? Must we not only half the guilt and all the shame endure, But help to make our tyrant's thione of flesh and blood secure 7 If band and toot we mutt be bound by deeds our father signed, And must lie cheated, gnll'd and scorn'd, because they too were blind. Why, let them have their pound of flesh?lor that is in the bond? But woe to them if they but take a half hair's-breadth beyond ! Is water running in our veins 7 Do we remember still Old Plymouth rock, and Lexington, and glorious Bunker Hill 7 The debt we owe our fathers' graves ? and to the yet unl?orn, Whose heritage ourselves must make a thing of pride or scorn 7 (iray Plymouth Rack hath yet a tongue, and Concord is not dumb, And voices from our lathers' graves, and from the future come ; They call on us to stand our ground, they charge us still to be Not only free from chains ourselves, but foremost to make free ! The homespun mail by mothers wove, that erst so freely met The British steel, clothes hearts as warm with Pilgrim virtues yet, Come, Brethren, up ! Come, Mothers, cheer your sons once more to go Korth to a nobler battle-neld than with our olden foe ! Come, grasp your ancient buckler, gird on your ancient sword. Let freedom he your bastion, your armory < Jod's word, fthout " Ood for our New Kngland !" and smite them hip and thigh, The cursed race of Amalek, whose armor is a lie ! They fight againit the law of Ood, the ?acred human heart, One charge from Maaiachusetts, and their counaeli fall apart ! Rock the old Cradle yet once more ! let Kaneuil Hall aeiid forth The anger of true-hearted men, the lightning of the North: Awake New England ! While you aleep the foea advance their linea Already oil your atrong hold'* wall their bloody banner ahinea, Awake ! and hurl them hack again in terror and deapair, The time haa come for earneat deeda, we've not a man to pare! Sp*in? Flowers.?We have received a bouquet of rare and choice spring flowers, whose fragrance and beauty are not to be spoken of in vulgar prose. Only a poet could do them justice. They are all flowers such as the poets love?that is, such poets as Thompson or Wordsworth?not your sickly, puling sentimentalists of thisday of transcendentalism and hran bread in poetry?primrosps, violets, and other sweetest flowers ol " never-cloying odor."? This elegant bouquet was from the Clifton Nursery, Stateii Island, near the new church, kept in the most beautiful style by Mr. M'Farlane. The Grand Jackson Bali, takes placr at old Tammany to-night. There will be a glorious display of the beautiful loco foco ladies ho elegantly described by Gansevoort Melville at the Tabernacle last week. Three cheers lor the loco foco girls ! Now let us go and tread a measure at old Tammany. Northern Navigation The Welland Cana Will b? opened on April.1 *t Tyucb Movimxnts.?We understand that the secret committee to organize the Tyler party, recently appointed at Washington Hall, experience great difficulty in procuring materials to form a central committee of seventeen in this city, in order to call a State Convention for the purpose of appointing delegates to the Baltimore Convention. 1 They have succeeded, we understand, in catching only three or four, one of them being a young man named McBtide. They are still, however, very ardent in the chase, and probably belore the 25th of April next, they may catch the entire seventeen. We learn lurther, that the secret committee have endeavored to set a trap for the purpose at' catching Major Joe Hopkins of the Fourth Ward. Well, it they catch Major Joe, and place him on the committee of seventeen, to " cry aloud and spare not" to the democracy, tliev ninv met mime resnonse. But Joe is not to be so easily caught as they ; imagine. However, they can try, and do their best. The great difficulty in this secret committee, appointed under the auspices of John Jones, the President maker, not John Jones, the button maker, of 2t> Piatt street, up stairs, arises from the opposition of the office-holders here. This is really too bad. Here are the honest lriends of Captain Tyler, like the order of the Jesuits, who compassed heaven and earth to make one ptoselyte, moving all the elements to catch seventeen delegates, and at every turn they are met by the sneers, the ridicule, the taunts, the laughter, the opposition of the men who are living on the bounty ot the President! Was there ever a man so duped as John Tyler! We think this last piece of ingratitude and deception, beats all that preceded it. We must give a , full and graphic account of it in a few days. The Spring Election.?The whigs have pluced their candidate for the Mayoralty before the public ?Morris Franklin?and have held their great meeting, a full report of which we have given. The " natives" bring forward their horse to-night in Washington Hall?James Harper. The locofocos are also very busy manufacturing their candidate, and in a few days we expect to see all the parties in the field, armed cap-a-pie. As soon as they are, we shall give a full account ol the position and prospects of thein all, and our opinion of their respective merits. In the meantime, it is gratifying to find that the movement for municipal reform, commenced by the " natives," has driven the whigs and locofocos into the same policy. Both cry out now for clean streets?a good police?reduction of taxes. But we very much fear, that we are not an inch nearer the attainment of these most desirable reforms than we were. Indeed, wc are inclined to think that this very universal shout of promises of reform, is rather calculated to obscure our hopes. But we shall see. P. S ?Last evening, at a meeting of the Democratic Convention, Jonathan J. Coddington was nominated as their candidate for the office of Mayor. The Shin Plaster Currency.?The shin plaster currency of the Plainfield Bank, which has been in circulation in New York and New England for some time past, is very gradually coming in and very gradually getting back from whence it came. Accordingly we find that the organ of this shin plaster concern makes a number of sad lamentations on the subject. The following is a specimen which lira fulra (rnm it>3 onlnmna r>4 lraatarrloir (Correspondence of the Sun ) Trenton, N. J. 14th March. The Legislature of New Jersey adjourned tine die yesterday .alter a long and laborious session. A large amount of business has been done,and an unusual number of bills passed. Amongst the most important, is an act to provide torcalling a Convention to revise the Constitution, and a Supplement to the Klection law. A bill was passed in Council making seduction a crime, punishable by line, not exceeding one thousand dollars, an1! impiisonment in the State Pnson, not exceeding Ave years, or both, at the direction of the Court, but it was lost in the Assembly. I noticed a resolution being passed in relation to the Plainfield Bank, authorizing the Governor to appoint Commissioners to investigate its alfairs and make report thereof as soon as practicable. This strikes me as beine an unfair, and unjustiAable course towards that institution No charges were made against the Bank, as I have been authentically informed. It is, to say the least, a most ungenerous, unjustiAable. unwarrantable and uncharitable attack; and it is generally believed that the result of the investigation will prove it so. Yours, Ac., ? Note.?Our coirespondent understanding the whole ground, naturally feels indignant at the course pursued towards the PlainAeld Bank. The Legislature having now adjourned?and of course cannot be inAuenced by any thing we may say on the subject?it is proper to remark, that the course pursued towards the Plainfield Bank jeo pardi&es the safety of all the New Jersey Banking institu tions No Legislature ever proceeded to investigate the affairs of a Bank of its own incorporation, unle. s predi rated upon written charges of mal-administration of its alfairs What is the stock of any Bank worth? What is the faith of anv State worth, if a member can rise in his place and move the repeal of a charter without preferring charges against the Bank, or of his own know ledge ex pressing any thing unfavorable to its management.?Ed Sun. No doubt the Plainfield financiers think it is very unjustifiable and very unrighteous to prevent them from shaving the community, and chiefly the pooret classes, of some twenty or thirty thousand dollars u year, by the es'nblishrnent of a hank whose principal agency is in Fulton street, and chief shaver in the Sun office. But we believe the sound banks and sound men of New Jersey entertain an altogether different opinion of the matter. The Plainfield Bank is merely a second or a worse edition of the Monmouth Bank, which was repealed at a previous session of the New Jersey legislature, and which happened to be partly in the bands of the same class of financiers The Platnneld Bunk lost its reputation, when it became associated with the same individual who destroyed the Jacksonville Bank of Florida and the Monmouth Bank of that State?and we have no doubt this induced the appointment of the Commission to investigate its affairs. | This movement is most desirable. There can he now no concealment of the true state of the bank? no secrecy?no effort to prevent the public from knowing its precise position. At present it is injuring the currency of New Jersey, and the sooner an injunction is issued against the whole concern, the better itXvill be for the credit and safety of the other banks in that State In the meantime, we again call on all people who hold any of the bills of this bank, to hurry them back upon the agency in this city, and to get rid of them as soon as possible. "A bird in the hand is worth two inthe bush." Dr. Pott's and his Conorkoatioji.?There have been several paragraphs in the papers giving a curious account of Dr. Potts and his congregation, which are rather mysterious. We believe the real fact in the case is, that a large proportion of the Duane street congregation are dissatisfied with his conduct in the late controversy, and, in order to get rid of him, a proposition has been made by another portion to build a church town, and dissolve his connexion with his present congregation. This, undoubtedly, is the real truth of the m itier, although for decency's sake another version of it is given. Indeed, it might have been expei ted that all sensible men in any congregation would have been disgusted with the part Dr. Potts took in the controversy. It was a discussion entirely discreditable to both parties engaged in it. The whole dispute lay in a nutshell, and was never better stated than by h passenger in one of our packet shifts the other day, while crossing the Atlantic.? He was asked, "Can there be a church without a bishop t" "Yes," he replied with a dry look, "yes ?stop their salaries, and you'll soon have plenty of churches without bishops." This is the whole argument. Thk Kirk or Scotland.?The pilgrims from the Kirk of Scotland?Dr. Cunningham, of Edinburgh ?Dr. Burns, of Paisley?and Mr. Lewis, of Dun(jee?are very busy in the cities south of this, collecting dollars and scattering the tidings o? sab vatian. They have got as far as Washington, an< by this time have picked up about $15,000- I hr> ... . .V.A.VA J'l/IA AAA ...Dl win probably rarry home tfou.uuv or *wr,uw ww thern. A pretty snug little sum. I Terrapin LtrN<;h.?Those wanting an elegan ilinner, with all the et i f terns of the season, are TP i leri^d to the advertisement ol this wpII known e? jublishment French Atlantic Steam Ship*?What will become mf them t It seems to be h nutter of regret with the public, that there nhoulii exist a doubt a* to the establishment of the line of steam ships by the French government, about which so much has been said. This regret, however, does not extend throughout the shipping interest, for in that interest there are elements enough to make it entirely indejiendent of the action of any government in a matter like this. It appears by the Journal du Havre of the 9th ult., that the disposition of the eighteen mammoth ocean steamers is not yet settled upon ; that Admiral Mackau, the French Minister of Marine, is against the organization of the line; that he is in favor of turning the steamers into transports for troops; that the government has no money to carry en any enterprise uncertain in its results; and that he will do all he can to break up the whole alVair But it does not yet appeur that the project has been wholly abandoned, for Admiral Muckau was not very clear in his speech on the subject, and the power to demolish the line rests with the representatives of the nation. It is to be hoped for their sakes, that they will let the law of 18-10 go into operation. There is a strong probability, however, that the steamships will be turned into transports, and the commercial interests of?F ranee sacrificed to other projects of less importance to the nation. The abandonment of such un enterprise at this time, gives to the world an opinion of France, that cannot be very flattering to that chivalric nation. After three years of bombast, in the shape of flaming puragraphsof the 'great nationnl movement for the commerce of France; after sending n steam ship, the (Jomer, with eight commissioners, to nearly every port on the Atlantic, to make arrangements; and making a tremendous display over the whole world; we are all at once astounded with the announcement that the "Trans-Atlantique Steamships" are abandoned, and the French Government, "the great rival of England on the ocean," sneakingly backs out from the enterprise, loses caste in the family of nations, and turns the " dixhuit grands batimans" into eighteen cattle transports for the Grand Armic of Algiers and Timbuctoo. But is this not a freak purely French, and to be expected"? When the French are in doubt, they never take a trick ; and we, therefore, take it for granted that the " Great Steam Ship Line" is lost to the commercial world, ft is unfortunate, in this view, that Louis Philippe should be surrounded by a Cabinet so whimsical as that of Guizot and his associates. It is unfortu nate, because they have been the means of throwing the control of the ocean, so far us any European power can have the control, into the hands of England, the great rival of France. What would Napoleon say, were he to rise up from his tomb, at this moment! How could France reply to him? This stupendous commercial enterprise, hailed ...:.u ...i. .._.i?. ,i,;? wim au iiiuuii ciiiiiuaiaaiia iiiiuuguuui iniuvr, mic great movement in the progress of that nation, which was to da more than any other enterprise for the advancement of her people, is given up and thrown into the cattle business, in order to make room for fortifications to keep the sans culottes in awe?abolished, to build a few railroads?abandoned to pay the expense of a most farcical expedition to the Chinese, who will neither drink coffee, French wines, nor wear French silks. It don't matter much, however, what course France pursues in this matter. There are the Anglo-Saxon steamship lines that will not be given up ; and there are elements enough in this country to more than supply the place just made vacant by Im Belle France. And we hope that our government will now take hold of this subject in earnest. It is the easiest thing in the world for us to throw at least one half of the $8,000,000 annually spent on our navy into a vast Atlantic steamship project. We can build a dozen steamers like the Princeton, for she has proved to be n superior vessel. These can run in connection with the commercial marine ; be manned by our naval officers, and be always kept on a war footing. Our present naval organization is most absurd. It is a school for idleness; therefore, two or three lines of mail steamships like the one of which we -peak, will give to America a race of active, enterprising officers and seamen, who would constantly be in readiness for war service. They would become proficient in steam machinery and engineering ; all would, by a system of exchanges, have a complete knowledge of their business ; and no officers on the face of the globe would surpass them in time of need. This is what we want. This is what we must have. France has failed outright in her project.? Now let us see what America can do. I'ourierism in the f ulimt.? w e unaersianu mill the Rev. Dr. Andrews, who preaches inlhe Tubeinacle every other Sabbath day to 11 Iarg^ congregation, took up the subject of Fourierism und the new Social System last Sunday, and gave one ol the soundest dressings to its disciples, its merits and its philosophy, which has yet been administered in these regions. We learn farther that three weeks from last Sunday hewill resume the subject, and give a thorough overhauling of the apostles of the new fangled philosophy and Social System. Now that the clergy have'got hold of Fourierism, ind the subject has been broached in the pulpit,we have no doubt that a great and powerful effort will be made, not in this or that sect,but by christians ol alldenominatione,to show upthis impudent system, which uims at the utter subversion of all existing religious institutions, and of course the Clergy, without exception, except the High Priests of their own no-Church, no-Bible, no-Christ, but Fourier religion. If Drs. Potts, Wainwright, Cox, and all others who are quarrelling about "words, words, words," as Hamlet says, would, drop their own petty squabbles and attack, as it deserves, this atrocious system of infidelity und licentiousness, they would be doing their duty much more efficiently than by their present sectarian conflicts. Pomeroy's Trunk Aoain.?The reward of.$6000 for the arrest of the German Lachner, und the recovery of the lost trunk and $47,000, was distribu ted yesterday among the claimants by the arbitrators, Judges Kent and Ingraham, and Lambert Suydam, as follows:?To Hiram W.

Wtsdont moat aasuiedly lifts up Iter voice aloud in the streets. Philosophy is dinned into our ears at every corner, and we can't lor the life ol us, if we would,escupe the teachings of innumerable apostles, troni Albert Brisbane to the razor strop man. Last evening, we ol this goodly city had our full share of philosophic instruction. At the Society Library, one Dr. Lambert, a youthful Plato lrom down eas", revealed to some score or two ol elderly ladies^ and ingenuous young men, the "philosophy ot living," by a profound lecture on himself and half <t dozen wax models of the human frame, lie told them in his own words:? ' How, for instance, the stomach digests food? whut the lungs are for?how the heart circulates the blood?also, to show you what is the cause of their disease, the effect of certain trades, occupations, pursuits and manners of living, what causes consumption, dyspepsia, liver complaints, rheumatism, colds, coughs and fevers, convulsions, or fits, and what is most important of all, the rational means for the preservation of health, and the physical training of children. 'An ounce or prevention is worth a pound of cure.' It is easy to prevent disease, but very difficult to cure it.

The most interesting and useful subjects to which old or young, gentleman or lady, can turn their attention." Well may we exclaim with Milton, " how charming is divine philosophy!" There at the Tabernacle, the illustrious Bronson ?not he who dealt out transcendental twaddle in the Democratic Review?but the plain, practical, Hucnt, versutile, never-tire Bronson, who philosophizes on every thing, from the great globe itself down to a flea, gave one of his discourses on his universal, eternal and incomprehensible system of philosophy?and afterwards, Mr. Nash sent all the audience to the seventeenth heaven by one of his thrilling melodies. Thus does Bronson pleasantly mingle amusement with instruction?a gingerbread alphabet sort of road to wisdom, of such obvious utility that not another word neeu be said about it. Vive philosophy! City Intelligence. Bowery Police oilloe.?Marc h 20.?James Warren applied for a warrant against George Buler, lor assault and battery. It appears that Warren, on Sunday last, was, when standing near 3d street, seized by the nose by Bulsr, who held a knife in his hand and threatened to cut the nose oft' Warren. Buler then struck complainant with the knife. a*>d seized him with liis teeth, leaving some ugly scars behind. Jacob Holstaften, of 45th street, mason, complained against Joseph Landenburg, for assaulting Irmon Monday last, in a tavern. Landenburg struck plaintiff' with a chair, observing that as there was a cause of quarrel between them now was the time to settle it; he was however frustrated in his pugnacious design, by his cautious antagonist leaping out of the window. The buttle thus ended. Ursuline Wisbrach appeared to demand the protection of the Court from her husband, who, lrom her description, seems anything but a good one. She sa d he was m the habit of beating her, and what is hardly less destructive of domestic harmony, indulging in abuse and sarcasm towards the poor woman. Her application for a warrant was granted.

MONEY MARKET, Wednesday, March 20?0 P. M. The stock market was a little firmer to-day. Prices show some improvement. The sales were to a moderate extent. Kentucky 6's advanced j ; Indiana J ; Illinois North American Trust 1 ; Long Island declined j ; Mohawk J ; Norwich 1 ; Harlem 2 ; Ohio 6's J. The panic appears to have subsided for the present, but there is a number of different op nions on the probable complexion of future events. The first explosion has been very severe, and we understand that several brokers have been swept down in the fall of stocks?some of them of some strength in the street. There is still a warm controversy going on, relative to the probability of a treaty of annex| ition? its effects on the market?and the discussions and excitements, that|may be readily produced. Thelbalnnce j of opinion is that the very uncertain')- of eur foreign relations, and the discussions on the Oregon, Texas and l I'ariff questions, will tend gradually to unsettle trade? cause the banks to curtail?and produce a further decline in the stock market. It is much feared that the like scenes and events will ensue from the topics of the present day, that were caused by the discussions ou the Northeastern Boundary. There is a manifest feverishness afloat. Within the past two weeks several Legislatures have adjourned, leaving a great deal undone they should have lone, and doing a great dcul they should have left undone. The Legislatures of Massachusetts, New Jersey,(Mary land, Mississippi, and by this time Ohio and Michigan have dissolved and the members gone home In Massachusetts laws have been pnssod injurious to the interest of all stockholders in hanks, restricting their power ctifniir,r,a ikov nuin The tax on nanks has been reduced seventy-five thousand dollars, and that amount levied on property of other descriptions. The hanking capital of the State reduced 1,070,01)0; several railroad charters have heen granted, and the differences between some of the companies already in existence setled. The Legislature of New Jersey have not accomplished much. The whole session was consumed in at'unding to petitions for divorce, aad se aration of counties. A law to raise $40,000 by taxation, and a resolution authorising the Governor to appoint Commissioners to investigate the Plainfield Bank, were passed. The last resolution is of more im|>ortance than all the others put together. It will put a check upon the abuses practised by that institution, and serve to teach future legislatures a little experience in such matters. The Legislature of Maryland adjourned before perfecting many ef the bills before it. Petitions have already been presented to the Governor, calling for an extra session, to finish several important acts that were laid over. The tax bill was the only one of consequence carried through successfully ? The defeat of the bill to sell the bank stocks held by the State, and that authorising the completion of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, have given great dissatisfaction to those particularly interested. To create a strong prejudice against the last Legislature, and to get tip au excitement sutticient,to induce theOovernorto call an extra session, the State stocks werelrun down to (14 per cent They have improved very much since the disappointment has worn off a little, and quotations now rule at 71J a 73. The Legislature of Mississippi held a very short session. The principal acts of the term were an investigation into the sfbiirs of the Planters'Bank ; a report of its complete insolvency, and the passage of a tax law to meet the current expenses of the commonwealth, and provide, as far as possible, for the pay merits of the bonds of the Planters Bank. The Legislature of Ohio have passed very few laws affecting commercial affairs. The Senate refused to pass a great number of bank bills sent up fitun the Lower House for concurrence, lor which they deserve a vast deal of credit. Had either of the two hank bills sent up from the House heen passed the currency of that State would have heen as worthless as it ever was, and the spirit of speculation would have had full sway. The last ac. counts from Michigan stated that the bill to aJvence internal improvements had become a law. The public works ol Michigan have increased in productiveness faster than those of nny other State in the Union. If retained by the State and protected, they will, in a few years, be a great source of rev? nue, and of great importance a* channels of communication with the West. The Boston money market presents no new feature.? Stocks are all firm, and pricei show some little improvement. United States 6's sold at a Jj advance ; Northern llailroad 63] ; Lowell 23 advance j Maine 4J j Concord 33 ; Kitchburg 1} ; Worcester ltt ; Providence ; Fastern 8 ; New Hampshire 0 advance. 36 offered for Norwich j f?0 for Portland ; 33J for Reading, and 7Aj for Long Island. Insurance stocks art- firm ; Manufacturing stocks are rather quiet, in consequence of the feeling as regards the new tariff. The Lowell companies are enlarging their mills and making extensive arrangements to produce theiijmanufactures on a very extensive scale. The annexation of Texas to this country would open another market for our northern manufactures to supply, besides bringing within our limits another large cotton growing diatrict. It is the policy of this government to secure i within the limit* 01 iti jurisdiction, tne wnoieoi inc country producing thii valuable raw material. The manufacturera of Great Britain depend upon their t auppliea of thia article Irom thin country. They i have made efforts, attended with an enormous e*penae, to cultivate the plant within their own posses* aiona. They have coiiiequently a (treat inducement to r promote it* growth in countriea Independent of this. In ' the conrae of a few yearn Texas will become a great cot* J ton growing section, and the importation of auppliea from that country into Great Britain, would enablo the Kngliali manufacturers to compete with ours more xuccesafnl ly, and curtnil the demand for our cotton crop.
