Considerable excitement exists in this market in rela tion to the complexion of the next advices from Europe regarding this staple. The last accounts were so very unfavorable, that wo can hardly expect anything ot en ?-ticouraging nature. Operators on this side are aware of the extent of the crop now coming forward and anticipate nothing but the prevalence of very reduced prices. Ac cording to the late advices from Liverpool, the impression in that market appeared to be very general that the yield of our new crop wouli be about two million five hundred thousand bales We think this estimate is rather under than over the probable picking, and have, no doubt, but tiiat the crop will produce nearer twenty-seven hundred und fifty thousand bales, than any this g below than quan tity. lu 1641, the c|p)> yielded nearly twenty four hun dred thousand bales, since wb>ch we have had cnltivated the usual Increase of land, for two seasons. In 1848, the crop was 2,030,000 bales, with a more unfavorable season, than previously known for years. The ciopof 1843, with a season like the one just past, would have amounted to more than 2,600,000 bale*. There baa been cultivated thia year more acrea of laid, with cotton, than ever he lore, since the settlement of the country ; the season has been very long and favorable, and without floods or fresh ets. The plant throughout the season has been healthy and every thing favoring a great product has beon realiz ed. We are aware how difficult it is to form estimates and bow apt opeiators are to be led into error from this prac. lice ,but liberal eatimatea are aafer than those placed un der tne probable production. We annex a statement showing the movements of this staple thia season: Baits Receipts at ports of the U. 8. since Sept 1,1844. ...670,804 " " " " same pei iod last year. .610,7M " " " " " year before 779,?78 K.Xj oits from U. 8. since Sent. 1, 1844.. 887,762 " " same period last year 216.680 " " " " year before 346,669 The receipts at thia port since the 1st inst. have been 33,406 bales^Exports same time 16,314 Dales.

Stock in city 23,000 bales Amount or sole 8,000 bales Since the arrival ofthe Acadia with Liverpool dates to the 4th ult., this market has been very much depressed and prices have fallen off from one to throe eighth 01 a cent. It will be perceived that there has been a very limited speculative demand in this market during the past month.

Polk on ike Tat iff-Col. houn't fttion?Tixaa and Annexation? Collet tori and Poelmaetert? Union of the Qlohe, Madieoman, and Spec - la'or? Blair't Protpect? OreelePA. Brownton? The Pri vate Secretary of the President elect, and tun dry other matter? of interest. My Drar Sir :? Information ot a most positive character, wluch has recently been placed in my pos session, enables me to forward (you to-day some matters of a highly interesting character in rele rence to the further movements of the new admi nistration, which you are at liberty to present to the readers of the Herald, and which are gathered from sources of the most substantial credit. From letters received lately in this city, and from inlormation direct from Tennessee?there exists no doubt that Mr. Polk will disappoint both parties, agreeably, inthe'course he purposes to take touch ing the tariff question. Much importance has been attached to the assertion that the views of Col. Polk on this subject would operate injuriously to the northein interests, and amongst other offences he has been openly charged with being a " fre? trade man." Now, the facts are these?as a Ten nesseian, Col. Polk's opinions have savored some what ot this, but you may rest assured that in his position us Chief Magistrate of the nation, those views will never be brought in conHict with the best interests of the whole people ; and though he will probably, at the outset,recommend a modifica tion in the tariff'laws?yethe will be disposed to sign any tariff bill which Congress may pass?acknow ledging thereby the rights of the whole Union, as represented by the National Legislature, to frame such a law as will operate equally in all portions of the country. These "carpers * have yet to learn that a citizen ot Tennessee, and a President of the. United States are decidedly different matters. I mention this fact in advance, knowing, as I do, that vh?- President elect entertains no desire whatever to propose any measure which may not result in eventual benefit to the people at large; a fact which his enemies will be compelled to admit hereafter. The peculiar situation of the present Secretary of State, Hon. John C. Calhoun, mid the influence which, latterly, has been springing up around him. has had the effect of opening his eyes to his real position, and he will unquestionably profit by cer tain discoveries he has recently made, in retereuce to the disinterested course of some of his pretended friends. A class ot miIk-and water politicians have for years been clinging to his skirts, and lauding John C. Calhoun to the third heavens, as the op portunity presented, whenever they were sure it would do him no sort of good. In return tor this "damning him with faint praise," they have hung around him, since he took the office of Secretary ef State, and craved " his influence" for their ad vancement. Some (indeed, many of these) have prospered temporarily in their suit, and while the course of the noble southron has been onward and upward, they have most religiously adhered to his rising fortunes. But a cloud has been thickening for months in the political horizon.and these fair weather birds arejinclined toskulk from the storm. But Calhoun is not so easily deceived, and it is pretty plain that his mind is made, up to the fact that he must burst the bond which unites him to " old hunkertsm"?or these millstones will inevi tably draw him, with themselves, to the bottom. They have followed in his wake, like " the shark behind the whaler," but he will shuffle them oft", in good time?be certain of it. Among these sup porters (heaven save the mark!) has been the Rev. Orestes A. Brownson, of Massachusetts, who has bawled "loud and long" for "South Carolina's favored son"; but whose notions of democracy and popular rights are altogether behind the present age. Brownson has proved himself a transcen dentalism politics, though his doctrines have not proved so deep as to effect a certain object he has for sometime had in view. Brownson has calibre, but his star is rapidly declining. Orders were for warded by Calhoun'B clerk to the publishers ot Brownson's Review last week, to discontinue that journal, which lias been sent to the Honorable Se cretary of State, since its commencement. This little affair, through trifling in itself, is a sort of beginning. Straws, you know, show the directioH ?f the wind. 5t In reference to the annexation of Texas, 1 doubt much if any of the numerous bills now under con sideration will be passed by the present Confrere, and there is every ptobabihty that Mr. Weller's proposition will come nearest to that which will eventually be acted upon. The feeling which ex ists among the friends of Benton, aad the natural opposition "which annexation receives from the Wliigs, will prevent any final action on the sub jrct, J 4c?xr, fr>r thn pic?f?l. Hut it must Mime, Bt last, nud thelriends ot the measure must triumph. A variety of speculations have been in dulged in by the letters-writers from Hub city, and th;ir correspondence is filled with prognostications of what will and what will nut liapprn. I propose to offer you a para graph on this point, and you will find hereafter that there are "more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in the philosophy" of certain persons who shall be nameless. Among the promi nent appointments which have been made bv Presi dent Tyler,and which are already confirmed by the Senate, there is no question,many will remain un disturbed by Mr. Polk. Among these Gen. Mar riot, ot Baltimore, who is a strong man,and whose appointment has proven a very popular one with the Democratic party in that region. He will, without doubt, be retained. Mr. Blythe, the Collector in Philadelphia, has done as much, probably, as any man in his party towards the election of Col. Polk. He is a promi uent politician, and is surrounded by a host ol de voted friends. His position iB looked upon as per fectly safe with the new administration. Gov. Van Ness, your popular Colltctor in New York, who has so recently been confirmed by the unani mous voice of the Senate, will " hold over," of course. There has not been, nor will there be, any opposition here, which can disturb him at present, and I opine that his excellent business talents, and high reputation will secure him his poeition. Col. Graham's services as Postmaster of New York city, will be dispensed with, just as soon as may be? and, as this is an important post, you need not be surprised if the removal of Col. Graham should be one of the first on the list. Alderman E F. Purdy will, most probpbly receive the ap pointment of Postmaster in New York. The Col lector of Boston, Leonard Williams, will scarcely hold his place after March His course has been unsatisfactory, and his removal of democrats and appointment of whigs, in the Custom House there, has injured him. Besides, he is but little known, and a post so important as this must be filled by some one who caa command influence. Nat. Gteene, ike postmaster there, will of course re main in statu quo?there is no particular objection to him or his democracy. In reference to the new Cabinet you may rest satisfied (as I informed you originallv,) that Romulus M. Saunders, for the Post Office Department, Robert J Walker, for State, George Bancroft, for the Treasury, and Gen Armstrong, for War, is as certain as anything in the future can be. The claims of these gentle men are indisputable, and they will go m " by gen eral consent " I now proceed to matters which will be new to you. A rumor has been going the rounds for some weeks past that the friends of Polk had offered to purchase the " MadtBonian" newspaper establish ment. This is only a part of the story. It is pret ty well understood here (and the above rnmor is based on this fact,) that a union is to be effected between the Globe, the Madtsonian, and the Spectator, and from this union will arise the gov ernment organ, that isto be. U is also understood (not rumored,) that Tom Richie, nowot the Rich mond Enquirer, or E. H. F Claiborne, (formerly M. C. trom Mississippi,) will be invited to take charge of it, editorially. Such an arrangement is actually on loot, at this moment, and it will be consummated within three months. You will bear in mind that this is not guesswork at all. If mat ters oomr round as is desired by those interested, Blair will receive an appointment abroad, which of course will suit him very well. Th? leaders ot Mr. Polk's administration in Congress will be Levi Woodbury, of New Hampshire, in the Senate, and Charles J Ingersoll, ot Pennsylvania, in the House. These latter are tried men, and are not only in high esteem with the President elect?but are both gentlemen thoroughly versed in political tactics, and are perfectly competent to lead the van in their respective branches of the National Legislature. The former, hailing as he does from the Granite State, which was the first to nominate Col. Polk, in the Baltimore Conven tion?occupies a proud position at this time, and his superb talents will enable him to take the lead and hold a controlling influence. Ingersoll is a splendid fellow, and understands his position ex actly You will hear from htm, hereafter. Mr. Polk will bring with him to Washington, a gentleman by the name of Harris, who will receive the appointment of private secretary ts the Prest lent. Mr. Harris was formerly a ewrtrtrof Mas sachusetrs, whence hs was called by Col. Polk, <?me two or three- years since, to take eharge ol he NathvUle Uuum (<9?t.
