The old questions which have been agitating the countryforyearspast?"bank"?"currency"?"distribution"?"tarirt"?appear to be giving way under the influence of new questions, and a new impulse which begins to prevail extensively all over the country,in relation to the recent springing upoftheTexas annexation question, and also the negotiation re lative to the Uregon territory, lbese two questions have sprung up during the last two or three months, to un importance that no one would have anticipated a year ago. Almost every pnner that we see is now discussing with more or less excitement the annexation of Texas question, and many oi them also the negotiations on the Oregon question. In the Legislatures of the various States, movements are made in reference to these questious; and we perceive in the important legislatures ol Pennsylvania and New York resolutions directly affecting the Texas question have been introduced. In every part ol the country the discussion incieases and the excitement widens. What is the reason of this sudden springing up of excitement on these important questions, that appear to be yet far off I It is very easy to see and appreciate the causes, though latent, of this extraordinary sensation, orexplosion, as it may be called, all over the country. The Texas question as well as the Oregon are founded on the same general principles?the acquisition of territory, the enlargement of the boundaries of the United States, and in that aspect they bring us into conflict with the ambition, policy, and interest of foreign nations. It will be thus at once perceived that these questions acquire their importance from their bearing on the great question of peace or war. They are war questions in everv sense of the wcrd, and thus they become invested with that overwhelming interest which has produced such an excitement, especially amongst the commercial classes. It is evident, therefore, from the sudden springin<r tin nf thu ?Yr<ifMinpnt fhuf i? ? uirnnrr u/ur party in the United States, and that this war party is founded oil the nttural ambition of nations, and on the avowed purpose of ultimately comprehending within the extended grasp of this government the whole North American Continent. The first movement of this new war party was principally made in the Western States and under the auspices of Mr. Senator Benton of Missouri, lie and his associates seized upon the Oregon Territory Question, as one likely to excite much feeling, and whose popularity was calculated to create much capital amongst the democratic party in the west. The other question founded also on the same general principles of acquisition of territory and territorial aggrandizement?the annexation of Texas?has been seized upon by Mr. Tyler, the President, and is even going far beyond the Oregon Question in creating a prodigious excitement throughout the country, and in stimulating the war party to an extent that no one would have supposed. Here, therefore, are tws different political interests, each already seiz ing upon important questions connected with our foreign uflliii-I 1"."? <- 1 . /.tk.r nnvornmonta on this Continent, but also with the governments of Europe. In England, we must recollect, there is also a strong war party; so is there in France. In the former country, Lord I l'dlmerston and the whigs head the war party?in the latter, M. Thiers and the republican and " movement" men. Now, as soon as the views ol our people and government in relation to territorial aggrandizement, are spread before the politicians ol Europe, we may expect that the several war parties of the western nations on that continent will immediately take ground against us, for their interests are contrary to ours, and their put poses are in direct hostility to ours, hence, will come collision of opinion, anticipating and ushering in, collision of physical force in battle. It will be seen, therefore, that there is no pros pect of any settlement of these important questions in relation to Texas and Oregon; that they are calculated from their very nature, from their foundation, to widen and increase, and enlarge their boundaries of agitation and excitement until they bting America and Europe to the brink of wur. It is utterly impossible to imagine that the impulses of tin people of this country towards the South 01 the North or the West, can be checked or retarded by the politicians of the day. The ambition of the race looks forward to new and still more extended boundaries ol empire. All the energies of our pop ulation are pressing onward to new fields ol successful enterprize and labor. Thus these questions become invested with an interest as irrepressible and unquenchable as are the bounding aspirations and ambitious desires of the people. The longer the agitation continues so will the excitement grow We are in the commencement, then, of a great period of agitation, which embraces within its widening circle both Europe and America, and involves the first principles of races and the very elements o national growth and power.kThere is no repose for iiq for tha nurl r-antnrv That a varv ?anaihla riliaa:. ; - ? - vrr of events must admit. So we may as well pre pare for it in time.

Here it i^, from the I organ of yesterday :? T?l? k Dinslr.?A iiublicMinner will be 'given, at the i Shakspeare Hotel. In this city, on Friday Evening next, the 29th ins-t., it being the anniversary of the birth of President Tyler. All those who feel desirous of paying merited honor* to a patriot and statesman, to whom the country is indebted for the settlement of perplexing controversies with foreign |>oweis, and the origination of measures calculated to advance the interests and promote the prosperity of our common country, can procure tickets by applying to either of the iollowing gentlemen belonging to the Committee of Arrangements ANSON 1IERR1CK, WILLIAM (J. WOOD, FREDERICK A OAY, GEO. FARNHAM, CHARLES FOX. JOHN 8. BOWRON, WM. H. MICHAELS, GEO D. STRONG, A. G. BENSON. By this it will be seen, that the Tyler party, after weighing the balance of probabilities, have at last arrived at the conclusion, thul instead of making it a public movement, to make it a table movement. Instead of the play of eloquence and rhetoric ut a popular meeting, they will have the play ol knives and forks at the Shaksoeare Hotel. Instead of holding a meeting which would be broken up by , i the rowdies ot other factions, the Tyler men will , "take their ease at their own inn," quaff the bowl to . their success, and dtink the Captain's health with every degree of peace and comfort. This is the , - wisest thing they have ever done, and we shall ; give every aid to the ki'chen politicians who ure j : endeavoring to get this affair up in the best style. | One thing, however, strikes us in this. The j committee who have projected this, appeur to be j utterly abandoned by the principal office holders , in this city. Where ate Mr. Curtis, and Mr. Stillwell, and Mr. Graham! Echo answers, where! # They seem all to take the matter perfectly cool. , It is, however, probable, that they will attend the e dinner, as a great many questions besides canvass ( back ducks will be discussed on the occasion. We | understand that this movement lias been got up en- ( tirely by Mr. Geo D. Strong, who is the masterspirit j of the Tyler party here, and it is highly probable ( that on this occasion we will have a most impor- , tant revelation, respecting various matters and , things connected with Wall street. No doubt, Mr. , Strong, being one of the committee, will make ^ a speech, and we shall certainly expect from ( him a full and accurate account of his connexion j with the Commercial Bank and North American Trust Company. It will come very aprupoi at this time. Mr. Graham also can give a second edition ?a nice little, spicy, after-dinner narrative of his operations in the North American Trust Company. From Mr. Benson and others we can obtain ex ' ceedingly amusing and well-?easoned hits of speeches in the way of explanations of the best 1 way to dupe and gull a Chief Magistrate in the matter of contracts for beef and mutton?get hold of the spoils, and prevent the organization of a par- ^ ty which might effect a change in the disposition v of : the spoils. We think is thus, in c all conscience, enough prospect to provoke the ii|>- 1 petite of any reasonable man, and that this dinner ' promises to be one of the choicest affairs of the 1 season. s * r Iiik Streets.?During the last qvarter of a cen- t tury, or the memory of the " oldest inhabitant," it ^ .................... .? ?

P&ocrkss ok tiik Crnr Reform Pa*Ty.?'The Native Americans, or "Relorm Party," are cer:ainly making rapid progress, and seem to out-strip loth the old parties in their meetings?their numjers?their enthusiasm?and we trust they will also in their success at the polls. Last night they had no fewer than six meetings, in different parts ol lie city. Fir^t, there was an immense meeting ol he sailors, at the 8hakspeare Hotel, numbering rohahly tilteen hundred or two thousand. The ;reatest enthusiasm prevailed amongst these lion st Jack tars, and a number of excellent speeches tvere made, and all adjourned with a firm reliance sn attaining victory the week after next. The se ond meeting consisted of that useful and indepenJent class, the butchers. They assembled to the lumber of upwards of two thousand, at Temper ince Hall, corner of hirst Avenue anu Houston itreet. Here the game enthusiastic spirit in favor >f reform was evinced. The third meeting was of he carmen. About three thousand of them met at Military Hull, in the Bowery, and the enthusiasm n favor of city reform was indescribable. The ourth was a mass meeting, comprising the 13th ind 7th wards, which met at the terminus of Grand itreet on the East Iliver. The eloquence?the cheers?the enthusiasm of this meeting?astonished all the river craft, and made the sailors and sloops almost stop on their way. The fifth meeting was a mass meeting of the ninth ward, at the old stand, corner of Hudson and Christopher streets. About three thousand were collected here, and the greatest spirit and vigor was manifest in ull the proceedings. Then in the 1st vfard the sixth meeting was held, at the IJenry Clay House, in Washngton street, and a very large and enthusiastic neeting it wus. The aggregate numbers at ull these meetings was ibout 13,000 men. This certainly presents a fotnidable force ut the approaching election, and we ire more and more satisfied from the complexion >f these meetings, the enthusiasm which was e.\tibited, and the numbers in attendance, that this airly has the strongest ho|<es of effecting a reform n the city government. The next great meeting )(this reform party will be held at the Exchange >n Thursday, at 2 o'clock in the ufternoon. h vill be a mass meeting of all the wards, and will indoubtedly be the greatest meeting ever congregated in Wall street or New York?it will be a se:ond edition of the great muss meeting ut Washngton Hall, which had to adjourn to the 1'ark in >rder to find room.

It will ord you some pleasure, I am sure, to tnow t> i the reception here, in public and in pri'ate, oi 'ommodore Daniels, has been all that he, >r his warmest friends could h desired.

S. brig of war Luwence, called upon the .President, at the Governnent House, the President, after the first salutaions were over, advanced to the Commodore, put lis arms around him, and having embraced him iflectionately, made a brief but a feeling address, n which he spoke of the Commodore as an old ompanion in aria?, who^in times of need Italian Opera.?Borohkse's Benefit.?Applause nd dollars, or to observe the rules of nreeedenee. lollars and applause unquestionably are the greatst desiderata after which every artist aspires. Thi> ' consummation devoutly to be wished," fell lasi light in ample measure to the share of our beautiul prima donna Borghesc, and we do not hesitate o declare that never were bravos and bouquets jetter deserved. Borghese arrived here in a time vhen the people were literally surfeited with inulie. Castellan's beautiful notes were still fresh in he memory of our dilettanti; u great many folowed with their " mind's ears," if we are allowed o say so?Damoreau, the queen of song, on hei eregrinations in the South, and the enchanting trains produced by VieuxtempH', Ole Bull's and Vrtot's bow, had not yet begun to die away. The uccess which attended the Italian opera on th<lights of her performance, is, therefore, the best iroof of the power, which her remarkable talent xercised upon the numerous nmlienccs, and this uccess is so much more commendable, as her oice is far from being perfect. She has in fact inly very few good notes, and these are her midlie notes; the high ones being rather too sharp ind shrill in forte passages, and her few low tones ark vigor and clearness. But if her voice has <ome natural defects, her method is chaste, correct, and of an unusually superior ordet. Her vocalization is a prodigy of agility, her feeling inense, and her ornaments, although not unfrequenty overcharged, are nearly always uncommonly graceful. Add to these a bewitching acting? Grin-like in the opera seria?Tadohni-like in the rulfd?and it is not to be wondered at if she great a favorite in New York as she was in the ilavana. ine entertainments presented 11 great variety There was a comedy, containing a faithful record, low Majocchi fell sick, and how the I'uritani an 0 be given without the part of Sir Richard; the whole spoken, or rather sung, by Mr Wells, with 1 beautiful accompaniment of hisses and laughter There were farther, the three acts ol " I I'uritani," a pat de trois by tne Misses Vnllee, which had the honor of an enrore?we rlo not know why?and lastly, a vocal concert bv Valtellini, DeBegnis, and the benrficiaire Valtellint's air, which has the appearance of being by Mercadante, was innch applauded, as well as tne amusing scena ol " I/fanalico per himutica." This piece, which is u great favorite with Liblache, was very well sung, and much better acted, by the veteran De Begitis; it itonly to be regretted that the orchestra did not follow his advice of minding ihe pianos and fortes in Borghese's air, where the accompaniment was far from being perfect, and where tne violino prim< played as if he were going t<i perform the principal air. The aria from Billy is not the same as thai mng by Castellan, but only little better; it is more at raltz-tyrolicnne, and would hardly have been noticed, it it had not been so bewitchingly sung by Borghese. The overture to la fillt du regiment, which ought to have been performed at the beginning of the concert, was given at the end, and could very easily have remained away altogether, as it is a worthless composition, and shows a poor lodgment on the part of the person who selected it On the whole, the performance came oft" with great iclat?and the house, which was crammed in all parts, evidently enjoyed it very well.

Half past seven o'clock was the hour appointed 1 for the performance to begin; |but the learned pro- | lessor not having come to the scratch in time, the audience became exceedingly obstreperous, letting iff volumes of gas, and shouting, "Hale, Ilale?

After he inhaled the gas, he strutted i ihe stage backward and forward twice,tluew himself into J i theatriul attitude, and roared out "To be, or not to , be?that is the question ; whether it is nobler in the , mind's eye"? here he made a full stop, placing the tipof , his thumb on his Korean nose and fell back against one of the pi liars. The next expeiiment was on a young exquisite about 20 years of age. After inhaling, he stood , -lock still for about a minute, turned round on the professor, planted a heavy hit on liia gas pipe, and luid i ins sprawling at lull length across the hack benches A respectablo looking young man next , sto ned forward and placed the uas tube to his , mouth, but it was no go ; it would not operate? j

The next fellow attempted to play the same game, lint In w.i-seized by a half a dozen of the professor's hoily guard, knocked down on the stage, and pinioned until tin | gas evaporated. The other experiments made during the remainder of tin evening were u repetition of each other, developing no new feuture; the persons upon whom they were madi were pacing the stage backward and forward, making unmeaning grimaces and uttering incoherent sentences. About nine o'clock the prolessor's stock ol gas, Irom its ' rapid consumption, became exhausted?he then propose!

The report of the Delaware and Huuson Canal Compa ny, showing the result ot the year's business, places their affairs in a very fair light. The 'company mined and ' sent to market last year, '227,60.1 tons of coal, all of which, , together with the overstock from 1842, will probably be J* sold before the arrival of any coal by canal this year.?

For February, 1943 $10,060 j ? ? 1944 38,370 j"' Increase for February, 1944 $18,330 The bill of the House of Assembly, relating to allowing ' theUticaand Schenectady Railroad to carry freight by | paying canal tolls, came up for discussion before that ' body on Friday last. It met with general favor, as the eifect of the law would doubtless be favorable to the reve1 nue oi the State. All the roads west of Utica have the ' privilege of carrying freight, but no benefit to the eastern . cities is derived from their so doing, as merchandize in3 tended for the seaboard cannot be transported east of Utica unless it goes by the canal. The bill will probably become a law before the present session closes. Efforts are J making in all sections of the country, from the east to the extreme west, to open that link in the communication between the two extremes. By granting tho Utica and b Schenectady Railroad the privilege of carrying freight | throughout the year, the western roads could be com I'-""" ? I"*/ ??" ? o- ? f present they carry freight without paying the State a s bonus, for the privilege, as a protection to the canal. They hove greater facilities than the i S hencctady road, whereas in justice they should ' ail be subject to the same restrictions, nnd enjoy 'f the same privileges. The canals through this State <re the last opened for navigation. Those of the North, South and West, are navigablo some time before ourt. The Wclland Canal, through Canada, connecting the waters of Lake Erie with those of Ontario, opens on the first of April, nearly three weeks before the Erie Canal of thi* State. The Pennsylvania an J Ohio canal* have been ui > active operation for more than ten days, while our's will I remain shut up for nearly a month longer. The Hudson ' river opened nearly a month earlier this year than it did last, and still the canal is kept closed up to within about - a fornight of the time it was made navigable last year.? ' There appears te be some useless delay in opening that channel of communication with the west, that requires some explanation. These things call for prompt action * a<> part of the Legislature, in relation to the carrying of Ircight by the railroad along the lino of the canal.? The immense quantities of produce awaiting transportation to market, and the far advancement of the season be, fore it will be received by the old route, are strong rea. sons why this subject should be immediately disposed of. e Since the late European advices came to hand, theope' rations in this market in cotton have been very limited, and prices show a slight decline The sudden collapse of the speculation got up in this country in this staple> i shows the great influence of the present state of the cur" rency on these movements. Avery systematic arrange' i ment was made throughout the States to keep supplies hack, so as to create abroad the necessary feeling to ad~ vance prices on the other side. The plans laid succeeded to a certain extent, and for a short time the excitement iu the Liverpool market run very high, and prices advanced very rapidly. The fever was kept up ' bv reports from this country, giving accounts of a short crop. The sales of the week just previous to the explosion of tho bubble, were larger than ever helore for * the same time, but prices could not stand a further inflation, and the excitement instantly subsided, causing so srroat a /lunvuctiinin in tlio market that tho aalea nf a tvoolr I ?'? - 1"-?'" * ? or two after could not reach even an ordinary extent.? | '"rices in the Liverpool market have not experienced 10 > great a change as the extent of the aalei. That market * iias now reached such a state, that accounts from this side ^ have no effect on it, and the operations are confined t principally to the wants of the consumers. The move> ments in the cotton markets of both countries, this seai son, have been of so peculiar a nature, that many of our , largest brokers and commission houses, who formerly i were very heavy operators in the article, have not made t a single transaction since the new crop commenced com,i ing forward. The most important feature in the nova3 ments of this staple is, the inability of those engaged to keep up the speculation. Capital seeking employment , never was more abundant, and this impoitant staple, so celebrated in the history of speculations, cannot be taken l(l from the regular channels of advancement from picking r- to consumption. " Annexed we give the regular monthly report of the Bank of Ohio for November, compared with that of FebB. ruary.
