D, R Porter h Ct? of Herri*burg, lor $M,0u0 AJ?W >UKK HKKALiJ. Mew York, Wtdnnitay, Ucccmber 18, UH. Important from Washington. By considerable effort we are enabled to give to our readers this morning the Annual Report of Mr. Bibb, the Secretary of the Treasury, which was presented to Congress on Monday luBt. We do not believe that any other paper in New York oi ihis morning can give this interesting and impor tant public document; and if so, we have the ere dit of giving this intelligence exclusively, as we did in the case of the famous report of the Secre tary of State. We have no time to-day to give a minute analy sis or review of this important report, but under our money article head will be found a brief view and synopsis of its contents. We shall return to it however, and give a full analysis of the views and recommendations of the Secretary. It is obvious ly of the highest importance to all the interests of the country, especially the commercial and indus trial, and is hardly second in interest to the re port on our foreign relations. l'lto Texas Question. Every fresh event in the political world satisfies us that the Texas question is going to exercise a more important iufluence on the future condition ol this country than all the other questions which have agitated parties in the republic during the past century. Its complexion, in every aspect, is portr-n tious. The general result of the last election, a) though favorable to annexation, is only the begin ning oi a new and important contest amongst the leaders of parties and factions, both in Congress and out of it, throughout the country. Let us> come to particulars. In this latitude, the contest about the Texas question is already disorganizing all the old party relations. We see the leading jour nals of the whigs and of the democrats uni ting most cordially in denouncing the diploma cy of the present administration on that question, and coalescing in the adoption of a course that will eventually be the defeat of the question itself for good and all* The Morning Atut of yesterday, and the Courier fy Enquirer are singularly assimi lated in their sentiments and purposes on this im portant question. Indeed, so much are the Nitre and Pott opposed to the present movement of an nexation that there is every reason to believe that their real design is to unite with the whigs in or der to defeat it. altogether, under the aspect of friendship. Mr. Beuton's scheme, which has re ceived the support not only of the wkigs, but of a laige portion of the democracy, is merely intended to defeat and ruin the measure under the disguise a desire merely to postpone it. We cannot be mistaken in this opinion, that un less the present Congress decide in some way favor able to annexation, under the influence of the re cent election and developments of public opinion on that matter, there is every probability that the question itself is utterly lost, and that Texas will assume her own attitude hereafter, without any reference whatever to this country. We are in formed from the best authority that the government of Texas will await the result of the present ses sion of our CongrefH?that after the 4th of March next the Texan Congress will meet, and if the question has not been decided favorably b> the various branches of our government, they will immediately open negotiations with the Bri tish government, for the purpose of securing theii independence?an acknowledgement of it by Mexico, and the advancement of their commer cial relations with England and other foreign na tions. We have it from undoubted authority, that the Texan government has been informed infor mally, of the friendly intentions of Great Britain, provided they keep themselves disconnected with the United States. It is supposed that England w ill be willing to grant Texa a subsidy of ?100,000 per annum for ten years, to pay the expenses ot the government in its feebleness and poverty, on condition that the British have a monopoly of the commercial intercourse, and the right to introduce British manufactures free of duty. In addition to this, the British government will interfere with Mexico, and procure the recognition of the inde pendence of Texas by tha< power. It will be seen therefore from these views, that unless something be decided during the present session of Congress favorable to the annexation of the two countries, there is every probability that the British government will avail themselves of the conflict of parties and interests in this country tc form commercial relations that ultimately will be particularly injurious to this country. The whole matter resolves itself, therefore, into an American question on the one side, and a British question on the other. And it iea moot remarkable feature in the whole of this controversy that a large portion of the democratic press are siding with a foreign government, against their own, on the ground of some dissatisfaction with the particular argument* used by Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Shannon in theit correspondence with Mexico. It is very true that in addition to the argument which Mr. Calhoun holds favorable to annexation,as affecting or grow ing out of the Southern institutions, he might have embraced another view, showing the great interests which New England manufacturers and New Eng land owners had in the annexation measure. And we think it would have been better had Mr. Cal houn employed this additional argument instead of confining his advocacy of the measure to a mere Southern view. But to oppose the measure itself ?to excite all possible prejudice against it?to pro mote every imaginable scheme for its defeat, on the ground of dissatisfaction with the argument employed in its defence, at once excites suspicion, and leads us to apprehend a great dishonesty of purpose on the part of those thus assailing the question. Underneath all this opposition to the di plomacy, there most unquestionably lurk a deep, nettled and determined resolution to defeat and ruin the measure itself. This controversy is, indeed becoming intensely interesting as it progresses. Cabinet of Ma. Polk.?We see it stated in some of the morning papers that Mr. Polk has 4iven in his adhesion to Mr. Calhoun and that section of the democracy which he represents We doubt very much the accuracy of this state ment. Our information is altogether of a differ nt character, and it comes from a. source entitled to reliance. We believe that the furious war of the rival sections, the opposition made to Mr. Calhoun by Mr. Benton and a large portion of the demo cracy, and the strenuous effort to sustain him by another portion, will have the effect of giving a new direction to the policy of Mr. Polk. It is highly probable, as matters now stand, that on the advent of Mr. Polk, he will choose a cabinet of materials quite distinct from the old feuds and contentions of the democratic party, against which both sections will unite in bitter hostility. This will,ot course,add to the difficulties of his position. Altogether, the prospect of storm and tempest and trouble of all kinds in the political world, is threat* ening in the extreme. Dimockatic Ward Meetings To-Night.?The meetings in the various wsrds this evening, for the purpose of electing committees, and delegates to the Democratic General Committee, will be pecu liarly interesting. A large portion of the demo cracy, in Congress and out of it, are beginning a very insidious opposition to the annexation ques tion, in the shape ot a postponement of it, aa repre sented in the movement of Mr. Benton, it ii due to the people themselves, in their primary capacity and in their primary assemblies, to declare what they meant by " immediate annexation," when they voted for Mr. Polk, for that was one of the measures which be was universally understood to represent. Btiam Ship Acadia Ii now in h?r tourtPtnih day Riuaioti Movement*?Bishop Ond**doiik a Thai.?We promiaed our readers yesterday a full report ot' the trial of Bishop Onderdonk, st> far as the proceedings have gone, but we tind on exami nation that a considerable portion of the details are, in the significant language of the police re porters, " unfit for publication," and would have to be given'in thoae provokingly unintelligible hyero gliphics, or astericks, by which pious editors of Don Juan and other worka of a highJy metaphysi cal character, announce 10 the world the extent ot their moral and conscientious labors in pruning the eccentricities of genius, and preparing appropriate food for the public appetite. We shall endeavor, however, in a day or two, to give, as far aa possi ble, the substance of these extraordinary proceed ings, with the whole secret history of the affair how it originated?the motives of hostility at work ?the state of all parties in the unfortunate Epis copal church?the character of sundry leading controversialists?and a variety of other matters, " too tedious to mention," as the auctioneers in Broad street say. ThUB much we may safely say, that if this trial were reported verbatim and given to the world, the whole community, Jew aiid Gentile, would *tand aghast at the levelations. The aolemn, sad and heart-rending truth is, that the revelatiou thus afforded of the Btate of certain matters and things amongst the class of men called clergy ?who arrogate to themselves the possession ot the keys of heaven and power over the soul's salvation, snd the monopoly of representing thr divinity himself?would cause the ears of every one that heard it to tingle. What a woful state of affairs! What awful exhibitions of clerical delin quency we have had of late J Why, it lecalls to the mind that terrible vision of the prophet, in which the angel replied to his exclamations o! horror on beholding iniquities aX which his soul revoked?"Turn, yet again, and 1 will show thee greater abominations than these !" When is all this to endl If such is the morality of the clergy, what must be the state of that which is denomi nated "religious society 1" If such be the virtue of the hierarch), what must be the virtue of the male and female aristocracy of the church visible 1 These melancholy revelations, however?and we refer to no particular case, we speak in general, of many which have occupied the public eye will do good. They will purify the religious com munity. They will awake suspicion?they wilt unmask hypocrisy. They will cleanse the sanc tuary from pollution. Pure and undt'filed re ligion?that religion which, like its blessed foun der, is humble, unostentatious, .^nd with a clean heart and clean hands, goes5 about continually doing good, " providing things honest in the sight of all men,"?may, in some quarters, dif fer from these terrible exposures of hypocritical pretendere; but j in the end, it will shine forth with fresh lustre, and more than ever command the homage of all just men. It, even now, is indeed, vindicating itself?like Jesus of Nazareth, it is driving from the temple these who have mftde it a sink of corruption and a den of thieves. ? '*>1 Duff Uebbn.?It is generally supposed in this neighborhood that DuffGreen has had a great deal ?odo with the recent diplomatic goings on of Mr. Shannon in Mexico, and we have no doubt he will have his finger as deeply in the Texas pie now that he has got to that republic. Duff is a most remarkable and original character Two or three years ago he went to London and resided there for many months, sustaining with more or less dignity, success, and effect, the ori ginal and characteristic position of American Min ister on his own hook. He engaged in a series of important and highly interesting, if not remarka bly profitable, negotiations, relative to a commer cial treaty between the United States ?nd Great Britain, and had actually a correspondence with Su Robert Peel,tbePrime Minister,and many other die linguished men in both Houses ot Parliarcent. He also visited Paris, discussed matters and things in general with Guizot. and drank tea and toasteu his shins, if we are not mistaken, with Tpouia Phi lippe himself. Having failed in his negotiations to a considerable extent, he then starte d the enter prise of a newspaper in the city of New York,which was to regulate the whole affairs of this continent and overtop the other newspapers, by being a son of organ of both Europe and America. In this grand scheme, Wikoffthe Chevalier, was his prin cipal aid, being the capitalist?save the mark ! ot the concern. Failing in this also, Duff started for Mexico with despatches, and has created a crisis in that country. Now he is beck to Texas, and no doubt before he returns to Washington, be will raise a highly respectable dost in that direction. Duff'is, indeed, one ot the most intere*ing cha racters of the present age. He has a singular mix tare of ?*?!, bronze, and plausibility, which give him more weight then people are apt to attach to him. We have some notion of writing the his tory of his negotiations in London, Paris, Texas, and Mexico. It wonld be as intensely interesting, and vastly more amosing, than the "Adventures ot Puss in Boots." Oli Bull's Concebt.?The first conceit of this artist since his late return to New York will bt given to-night at Palmo's. The orchestra will be under the conduct of Signor La Manna, and we believe many novelties not heard before, will be produced, including his famons new composition entitled " Niagara." It is a delightful thing that if people cannot consistently with great comfott qo and see Niagara ia winter, Niagara can to brought to visit them; and probably, after all, Gle Bull's Niagara is as grand to the ear as the natu ral one is to the eye. This is a great contest be tween nature and art. Let's all go and judge who is the victor. ___ Gband Concebt?St. Gbobob's Socibty.?To morrow evening one of the most delightful con certs of the season will be given in the Taberna cle. A glance at the programme in another column, will show an array of talent in the performers, snd i*ste in the selection of the pieces, seldom equalled. Tnis concert in all probability will fill the Taber nacle, and therefore it may be useful to repeat that the hour of performance ia 8 o'clock precisely. The. funds of the St. Geotge's Society are well ap plied, and are dedicated to the benevolent and meritorious work of relieving the wants of the de serving and destitute English emigrant; and surely the pleasure of listening to delightful munc will not be in the least degree impaired by the recol I'-ction that the happiness of others also is promo ted thereby. Nothing will be left undone by the St. George's Society in point of arrangements that can increase the enjoyment of ths audience, or render effective the efforts of the popular artists who are to lend their valuable aid on the occasion. Magnetic) Teleobaph.?Professor Morse's mag nstic telegraph will be shortly in operation on a small scale in this city, as we observe the commu nicating wires aro already extended between the stations, which are the New Post office, Nassau street, and a branch Post Office in Chathamtquare. The good people of that region may now expect to have the earliest intelligence afloat, and very likely be able to ascertain the contents of every box in the new establishment, and the whole city will be presented with the opportunity of seeing the operation of this wonderful discovery. Thi Foot Race oveb be Beacon Couhse on Monday Last.?In the hurry of casting up the se veral miles run by the two competitors in the twelve mile race, the gentlemen who presided as judges on the occasion made a slight mistake, and announced to the public the whole time the twelve miles were run in to be AH minutes 42 seconds. It ?hould have been, aa stated in our paper of ycafer dsy, minutes 41 scconda. Omn to Auuny.-TV riv?r on Monday morn in* The Coxplimentary Benefit to Morris, the Poet.?We fiad ia aa evening paper of yesterday the following curious and unique bulletin: J K?la-at.o?-Mr. Dew.y Mji that ? moiaratten U the martyr on of the preaent age," and Sir Petn.n*l Flash remarke t that "he whoweigna men* though" has hit hand* fall of nothing " Thua doubly fortified in our mere I lineu, wh merely itata, that aome zealoua Irienda of G?sii eral Morria con eived the idea of giving the puhlic ^ opportunity to iquara ac--ounta with W 1 1 a concert,) for h?many aonga af h.a, become i ia popular mutic, hut bringing no profit to the wrttcr. Thoacbeme was nearly matured, (by the tubacriber an I two other friend, of General Morria, aa a when aome bird in the air brought the maUer to or the object of it, and he at once, perMptorily diKliued 1 the honor.

"I hese are pretty fellows, indeed, to attempt get ting up a benefit lor a meritorious song-writer, and then to abandon the project because he "perempto rily declines the honor!" They must do as the fioliticians <4o, who nominate u man to office with
out kisknowing anything about it?without dream ing of auking his consent?and then make him stand and be elected, whether he will or not. We " peremptorily" insist that this benefit shal. go ahead, and call upon all those who have ever lis tened with delight to any of the popular songs of Morris, such as "Woodman Sparc That Tree," to come forward at once, and get up this benefit in spite ?>f all the opposition of the envious and email miud<td paragraphias about town. No doubt there has beien a great deal of envy excited by the an nouncement of this worthy project, and particularly amongst the "small paragraphists," or, more pro perly speaking, the oyster-cellar literati, as we call them. Birt we shan't allow these envious little I creatures to defeat this benefit. Morris himself is a very amiable and unoffend ing man. He has seen better days, and endeavor- ? ed very laonorably lo overcome many misfortunes, 1 and would undoubtedly be substantially benefitted by such " benefit." He has also been very instru mental in getting up benefits during the last four years for many characters tar less deserving than himself, as, for instance, the great benefit given to Hamblin, and various other persons. Now, when the father of complimentary benefits is in a position to be really benefitted by a benefit,we think it is utter weakness, and indicates a great want of moral forti tude and courage on the part of his professedfriends, when they shrink from carrying out this enterprise, because some trifling opposition has been manifest ed of some of the oyster cellar literati, and small paragraphists. As for ourselves, we have taken thi? matter in hand, and we shall never give it up until we bring out the benefit. And we callon all those who are in favor of this movement, nolent volunt to come forward and insist upon it. Don't ask Morris himself. Have no communication with the poet. Seek not the consent of the father of bene fits. It is not his business, but that of those who get it up. Therefore, go ahead. "N. P. Willis" may write a bulletin and indite a small paragraph, but he wants the moral courage to adopt a manly, straight-forward course, in a manly, straight-for ward business. But we will put the matter through, and we are confident that every artist, male and female, in the country, would, if practica ble, give us their aid in getting up this benefit. The Opera?II Puritani.?The Opera House was again crowded last night, with a fashionable and exclusive audience. The change of the night ' of performance to Tuesday instead of Wednesday, did not produce any perceptible difference in the numbers or character of the house. We were ^lad to observe, however, an increasing degree ot attention and quietness while the performance wat going on. This may be attributed in part, perhaps, I to the absorbing *xoited by ?h? opera it. self, ond by the peculiar character of Bellini's mu sic, which speaks directly to the heart, and never fails to arrest and enchain the attention?but we are willing to believe that the public is beginning to enjoy the opera for itself alone. II Puritani is a solid, massive, yet exquisitely harmonious struc | ture ; and there are few operas on the Italian stage in which the grand, solemu and impressive are so finely mingled and contrasted with the graceful, the tender, the pathetic and the enchanting. It it like a great painting, and requires to be carefully and minutely studied in all its parts, to be fully en | joyed as a whole. Signora Borghese was enthusiastically welcomed to the scene of her former triumphs, and was ac companied throughout by the hearty applauses ol I her auditors. At the close of the splendid duett with Antognini, in the beginning of the third act, a beautiful wreath of pale roBes was thrown from I the dresa circle to the stage, which she received with modest grace. She was dressed in the most faultless taste, and her acting and singing, through out, displayed the accomplished artist, the gifted actress, and the unspoiled favorite. In the duet | with Antognini, "A quel nomt, al tnio content o,' and in the celebrated polacca, " Son vergin vez torn," she was loudly applauded; and the " Qui la voce sua toave," and the exclamation, " Padre tnio!" were given with thrilling effect. The whole scene of hsr becoming mad and subsequent insanity, exhibited her powers, both of acting and I singing, to the highest advantage. But, perhaps | her most brilliant achievements, during the even ing, were the splendid passage, "Fin eke tpunti in cieto il giorno," and the duett in the opening of the I third act. The part of Arthur, formerly given to Perozzi, was played last evening by Antognini, who acquit* i ted himself with his usual credit. He sometimes I forces his voice too much, and his gestures are often boisterous and ungraceful. Still he is a fine I artist, and makes an audience feel him, whenever he is on the stage. Valtellina was handsomely received, and sang quite as well as usual. We think the " Cinta di fiori," in the second act, [ the best thing we have heard from him. It war loudly applauded. The celebrated duett between Valtellina and Tomasi, " Suoni la tromba," wae well given, and received by the audience with ar> | encore. The part of Sir Richard afforded Tomasi no very great fitld tor the display of his powers ; but whatever there was of it, he performed most admirably, and confirmed the favorable opinion which his first appcarance created. At the close of the opera, e call was made for the prima donna, who appeared, led on by Antog nini, and bowed her acknowledgments. We hope this tine opera will be frequently repeated, and we are certain that the ottener it is heard the better it will be appreciated and the more admired The splendid genius of Bellini has created a world of beautiful and sublime thoughts which are ad mirably adapted to improving the heart and inform ing and refining public taste. The Hoi.y Scriptures Illustrated ?Another superbly executed work of this kind is now pub lishing by R. Martin te Co., 26 John street, in concert with George Virtue, London. This work | is styled "The Devotional Family Bible," by the Reverend Alexander Fletcher, A. M., and if We may judge of the pictorial oart of it by the rpeci men we have seen, its merits are of a high order "Moses with the tables of the law," is the subject ot an engraving upon which the eye cannot dwell without being nyae the medium of a vivid and ex alted impression of Moses, the divinely chosei i leader of Israel, and his high functions; and "The I Good Shepherd" is another possessing great beau 1 ty. From the style in which this work is produ ced, a large circulation may be fairly predicted tor it, although two simitar ones are already in ihe field.

Of Ship timber, of?hich large quantities are snnualiy shipped, ol clap boards, shingles, laths, masts, staves, hoop poles, sash, blind and door stuff, of dimension stuff for lences and cedar poets and rails, a variety of similar kinds of lumber we have no means of getting any account' Of Hemlock bark, fire wood, lie., we can obtain no satisfactor) statistics. The amount of each of the above is quite ex tensive and could we obtain accurate atatements ol nuaotity and value would reach in the aggregate to a large amount. Ol the quantity of sawn lumber, boards, plank and Joists we have the means of ascertaining, very early the amount, as a re cord Is kept, at the office ol the Surveyor General.

Not far from thirty million* ot this, however was dry lumber that had heen piled out the previous season. Therewill be much tess of this kind of timber another season, as the quantity piled out is comparatively small It is supposed there Is manufactured here somewhere not far from two millions of feet of sawn lumber for bom? consumption that is not surveyed. This, with the hewn Umber of which we have no account, and including also the other kinds of which we have no statistics, show that Bangor ia something of a lumber market and that the Pen obscot people are not idle.-Bencor Whig, Dec. 13. From present appearances, there will be as much if not more lumber cut tho present winter on the Kennebec 'watrrs as there has been for several winters past. Teams have daily pnssed our office for the Isst fortnight on their way to the woods, and some day* we have counted eight ortrn. Many more have not yet started that wlllb? ma<ly in a few days.

The experiments performed on light and color, by means of the crystals and polarization, are beautilul, and cre ated much interest amongst our scientific men. The lecture last night on Astronomy, was illustra ted by the immense Planetarium, showing, at one view, the motions ot the planets.

In order to relieve tbem, he went 'o the traders, and finding that they had flour, be tried to get some on credit; but was refused. He then took thirty men, and told the traders that if they did not let him have the flour, he would take it. He was de fied, and made the attack on the store. The French end Indians fired on his men, and killed four on the spot, and it is supposed that nearly all lell in the retreat. (?Handsome Speculation.?It is slated that with in forty years the United States have extinguished the Indian title to four hundred and thirty million acres of land lor eighty-two millions of dollars. At this rate, they paid the Indians an average of less than twenty cents per acre.
