The shorts have been in tbs market to day, purchasing quite largely to deliver. The books oi several stocks opened to day, and sales made to deliver on the opening became due, and the shorts were compelled to buy at current prices. Counterfeit fives on Oliver Lee k Co* Bank of Bu6 are in circulation. These are a lithograph On very" paper, and can easily be detected by close examination. The intcreat on the public stocks of this city, payable on the 1st of February, will be paid on that day by the Chamberlain at hit office in tha Bonk ol the State of New York. The Merchant*' Exchange Bank has declared a divi dend of three and n half per cent for the last six months, payable on demand. iMo, irfnin The Bank of Commerce three per cent, payable 03 de mand. The Merchants* Fire Insurance Company four percent for the last six months, payable on the 15th inst The New York Iaaurance Company a r'gular dividend of Are percent for the last six mouths, payable on the ISth inst.,and a commission of ten per crnt on the amount of premiums on risks terminating on the 1st inst -the lat ter payable on the 1st of February. There has been within the past few days considerable excitement among the bill holder* of the PlainAeld Bank, N J.,end tha Broker* of Wall st. have been very active io redeeming the Issues of that institution,not,however,with out tha redemption of the amounts they received being guaranteed by the agents of the bank. Several brokers Hi the street refuse to touch these bills at any rate. The Urge amount in circulation has created suspicions in the minds of many that all was not right, and that some sctow was loose. The fears produced in the minds of the bill holders, by the refusal of the brokers to redeem tbem, have oompelled the government of the Platnlleld Bank to publish a statement of itaa b(fairs, made up to a very recent date, which we annex for the benefit of those interested. PLsixriKLn Bsnx, New Jcbskt, Due. 38, 1844. Resources. Limhilitiet. Rills Diici-ani'il... $16,838 Capitol Stock $50,800 Deposit in N.

According to the report of this insti token, published last January, it appears that at that time tlieloan*amounted to $70,260, specie $10,042, circulation $07,078, and deposits to $21,730 Some little time after that report was made, the Legislature of New Jersey ap pointed commissioners ? upon certsin representations made to that body?to examine the affairs of this bank, and report accordingly. After a great lapse of time these commissioners reported, and their report showed a circu lation of $41,068, with specie on hand! amounting to $41,068, a sum precisely that of the circulation. This statement showed that the bank had been put in order for the investigation, and its condition improved. We find here an inorease in the specie of $29,026, and a decrease in the circulation of $06,010, in a very short time, litis report to the Legislature calmed the fears of the public which was taken advmitsge of, and issues rapidly put in to circulation, so that in a few months, according to the report of the bank, the circulation has been increased one hundred per cent, and the specie in vault has fallen from $41,068 to $11,024. This shows a very groat expansion and depreciation in the value of its circulation, but a true and correct atatement of its affairs would present an In flation that would alarm every one holding any of its pro mises to pay. We know that the financial operations of those interested in this PlainAeld Bank, have recently been of such a nature as to require large emissions of its bills, end the appearance of these bills in (he market has produced the excitement before alludtd to. Te offset the effect of thia excitement on the credit of the bank, an in dividual,deeply interested in its prosperity, has published the following notice. The PbtiisrisLD Bsnx.?A malicious rumor relative to this institution, every word of which is false, was circu lated at the close et last week by an envious print in this ci'y. The PlainAeld Bank is managed by the best men in New Jersey, and these repeated attacks?while inflicting ae-ioua injury upon hundreds of industrion* people, and retarding the business of many worthy persons engaged in active pursuits?have only served to vindicate the character of Us managers, and prove the entire soundness ot the Bank. It is as sound as any other institution in (he United Bta'es, and at all tinea redeems i s notes promptly in gold or silver. Its bills are redeemed in thia city, tens and up wards, at par; fives and under st the rate of N'-iv York State money, being one half oi one per cot.t Wo hold ourselves individually responsible for the punctnal re demption in sp?eie of every dollar It has ih circulation at these rates, at our counter, on demand. M Y. BEACH. The responsibility of this person is a question upon which the publle r< quire <?U the Information possible to be obtained. It is generally known that he lis rated in the list of " Wealthy Citizvna" it be worth $000,000. Hew true that auy be, we are not capable of judging, bnt it ap?e?rsth*rn are thoso who queatlon this very much, end who array foots to con Arm their assertions We an il ""it a sla*?snst:t, taken from "Thompson's Bink Note Reporter," which bears upon its face a very official up pesaxnee. The fools here given can be seen on refer ence to the authorities named at any tuns. Th* Pi.Aierm.D Bsnx?Thk Llhiun Covnrr Bsnx? Masts Y. Beach's ronnacTion with thkse Irstitu vions. ' Mr. Emroa?Ti:e e'her day I accidentally heard a conversation in Wall street roiat vc to the above named hanks, and ths probability oi their ultimately ? bursting up " when one of the party stated tuat Beach's real ea U:e alone in this oitv, was werth enough to redeem the issue* of those banks combined, and was, therefore, a guarantee against inch a catastrophe. Being curious in ?uch matters, 1 yesterday took a stroll into the Record office te examine what rnal estate Beach hell that con d be wor h *0 largo en amount. I here send you the result 0 my 1 ihor-f, and if I hnve emitted any thing, or made ?n error, I beg the gentleman himself will cor ret me Itrm- The building occupied as the Sun office, come of Mas. tti and Fulton streets, estimated to be worth,with the ground, <31 by uto feet) $68,000 The same has three mo.- * iqes upsn it, as fellows: - Kiios Collin*' mortgage. $43 057 13 John 1H Wllliama'mortgage, second.. 16,000 00 Northampton Bank, mortgage, third., 7,000 00 Total amount *068677s The above are recorded in Liber 357 of Mortgagee, pp 347, 300 and 338, and the amount* are due at various pe riods between the preeCnt time and ISM, with interest at the rate of seven per cent per annum Item?The dwelling honee 37 Chambers street, deeded to Moses 8. Beach, and for which Moses Y. Beach's bond M given for $17,600*, and mortgaged to George Oris* old ier that amount, to be paid Tn instalments of $1600 to $$000?last pajir.cnt in 1864. This property may be worth $16,000?not a cent over that amount. It is therefore mortgaged for $3000 over its value ! The deeding of this bonte (which Moses Y Beach occupies as his own dwelling) to his son Moses, is a eircumstanoe which perhaps his peculiar system ol fi oauciering would explain. The mortgage alluded to Is recorded in Liber 387, p. 831. This is all the real eatate in which I can And that Moats Y. Beach baa any interest in New York. * As fast as the instalments shall be paid on thia proper ty by Moses Y. Beach, the benefit of suoh payments goea to Moses 8 Beach, who holds the title to the property. We should think the above was sufficient evidence to convince any one ol the responsibility of the individual alluded to. We find In thia statement very largo mort gages upon the real estate standing in the name of Moses Y. Beach, upon which he pays an interest ef seven per cent. These* mortgages amount to $83,667, into rest on whioh is paid at seven per cent, and the circu lation of the Plainfield Bank?according to the report given above?reaches $81,406, whioh is loaned ont at six per cent. How is it that this Mr. Beach does nat lift these mortgages?so far as the Plainfield bills will go?and hold his real estate unencnmberad, when he could make at least one per cant by the operation, and give him some claim to the possession of wealth 7 There la eomethiog wrong in this. The responsibility of this individual should be tasted upon another point. According to the laws ol thia State. It la illegal to circulate bills of banks located out of the State,within our limits,and everyeffenoe is pun ishable with fine, but. These laws are transgressed every day by nearly all,although the act cannot be pinned to any one; but when a man establishe* an agency of a foreign bank in a State, for the purpose of putting into circula tion iasuea of that bank, which are, br the law* of that State, Illegal, it becomes necessary that something ahould be done to bring him to juatioe?not only to vindicate the laws, but to protect those who might become sufferers, by being compelled to accept his issues. We personally know nothing in favor of, or against this man, either ai regards his private or public character; bat we should Judge from the foots presented to the people by others, that if the credit of the Plainfield Bank reats entirely on the responsibility ol this individual. It has a very weak foundation. Ita bill holders must take into consideration the evidence here given, and govern themeelvee accord ingly. The explosion* of the Jacksonville, Monmouth, and Northampton Banks, have not been forgotten by many who were heavy lufferers, and with the operations of thos* institutions in their minds, we advise them to bo ware of the isanee ot the Plainfield. We are now in the midst of prosperity, and all attempts to get up and palm off a shlnplaster currency, should be nipped in the bud. To do thia, it la important that the publio should'refuse to receive the issues of any bank, the credit of which la the least tainted, and tha officers of which are not men of char acter and standing in society. We annex tables made up from official reports showing the value of the importations into this port for the past year, compared with 1843. We are Indebted to the po liteness of Mr. Bogardus, Deputy Collector, and Mr. Og den, Auditor, for these valuable reports.

Foreign manufactures, cent out by and sold on account of owners abroad, must be paid for with duties added and remittances made accordingly, but on the Imports by houses here, the first cost is only to be remitted, the dutie? remaining in the country. Estimating the value of the imports in this manner?and it is the only correct way?we would not be surprised to find that the full value of the imports into the country, for the year 1844, amounted to one hundred and fifty millions of dollars. This amount must be paid tar, and It our exports are aot sufficient to do so, and our cre dits become exhausted, the precious metals must go for ward to liquidate the balance. Our exports, acoording to the official returns are made up at the home valuation, and the returns do not show how far they actually go, towards liquidating eur foreign indebtedness. The profits accruing on our exports in foreign countries should be added to the home valuation, and, whatever that is, with the first oost, is so much to our credit in o diet ting the value of the imports.

Annexation Debate continued ? IVinthrop of Maeeachueet It and Robert Doll Owen, of Indiana?Oregon?Dr. Dun. can?Native Americanism, and Rooibackirm?Mr. CHik ing?Robert Waleh, 4"c. James G. Bennett, Esq ,? Nothing has created more talk, excitement, and fun during the session than the manuer in which the whig opponents of annexation were compelled to meet the question on Saturday, through the dex trous management of Mr. Hhett, of South Carolina, by calling for a vote on the abstract point, without the details. The speech of Joseph R. Iugersoli, whig member from Philadelphia, may be con densed into two points, first, that annexation would increase slavery, and second, that it wonld produce war. The remarks <ol Charles J. Inger goll, on the day previous, who opened the debate on the democratic side, are considered as most in judicious, and confirm previous opinions of this gentleman, that he has much talent, but little prac tical political common sense. His position as to the effects upon slavery are also considered impolitic, and will be dented by almost every other democratic member who speaks upon the question. Mr. Wimhrep, a whig member Irom Massachusetts, will address the House on Monday morning, and be followed by Mr. Douglass, of Illinois, or Robert Dale Owen, of Indiana, the latter of whom will probably make the most able speech in favor of annexation that will be delivered during the session. The whole strength of the whig argument will be confined to the unconstitutionality of admission by any other mode than by treaty, and the dangers of war and evils of extension of slavery. The domo9rats will not only meet these points, but urge the measure for self defence, and self interest as a nation, inclusive of the right of Texas to transfer her soil with out consent of Mexico. It will make an inter esting week, and when the question is ready for a vote, the ayes and nayB will be called at every step of itsprogiess. Of 'his you may be assured, the abstract principle of annexation will be adopted, and the details left for commissioners to fulfil. The Oregon question will follow, when Dr. Duncan will lead ofl with an able argument. He will also meet Joseph R. lngersoll, whenever he introduces his bill to extend ike time of naturalization, and be will also probably amuse the House with a speech, on " Roorbackism," before the final adjournment. The members who make themselves prominent in the extension of the time of naturalization, will be placed on the same political shelf with those in New York city, who sold their party and them selves in the recent contest to their native allies to secure votes for their Presidential candidate. Nei ther the Whig party nor any other party will ever dare to place their names before the people, as the progressive influence and power ef adopted citizens will defeat them as often as they are nominated.? The naturalization law will never be changed eo as to extend the time, andtho&e who have attempt ed its repeal will be ever marked when presented for public favor. The annexation ef Texas and occupation of Oregon will be disposed ef before any other im portant questions are taken up, and those members who oppose extension of our territory by preper means, should refer back to the ayes and noes on the Louisiana question, and there learn the fate of its opponen.8, none of whom have ever since re ceived the confidence of the people. The occupa tion of Oregon, or of all that portion of any use or benefit to this country, will hardly meet with an opponent, except these who fear the British lion ; and it is probable that many who oppose annexation will point to their votes for occupation of Oregon as an evideoce in favor of extending our territory. But Oregon is already ours by right of discovery, boundary and possession, while Texas will be transferred, as Louisiana waB, by its lawful own ?rs. The Hon. Mr. Cushing, late minister to China, arrived here on Saturday morning, with some additional cptnmunications to our government from the minister to Mexico, but tney possess nothing of interest. It is to be hoped that Mr. Cushing will be sent to England in the place of Edward Everett, who is perlectly incompetent for the situation, except as the exponent oi the aboli tion clique of the democratic party of New York city, and a few eastern friends of like calibre. The Senate have confirmed the nom nation of Robert Walsh as Consul at Paiin. Mr. Walsh " is a gentleman and a scholar," but a strange re presentative of the democratic principles of a pro fessed democratic administration. His immediate connection and ardent vupport of the United States Bank, while editor of the National Oasette. of Philadelphia, and his continued abuse of demo cratic principles, should prompt a new admin istration to select Bcme one better -calculated to present the views of the dominant parijr -at the French capital, and thuB relieve the country front the continued attacks of French and British scribblers, who daily represent that party as the compound of evil, without meeting the arguments of those who have represented us at the two most prominent courts of Europe.? They have evinced both imbecility and want of patriotism, and should return to this country for improvement. The managing leaders of the Wh'g party are urging the re-nomination of Henry Clay for the Presidency, and it is alleged by a portion of the democracy that the Monument Fund about to be raised will prove a " corruption lund," to effect his election. Wabhincton, Jan. 3,1846. Visit of Col. IVm. H. Polk at Washington, and it$ Const. quences?Ths Position of Prttidmt Tyler juit now ? New England and the North on the Texas Question?Ni >" York and htr Politicians Profitable Nary Contracts? Gen Cass and his Prospects?1 he Great West, 4* Dkar Si* Certain political wiseacres, in this quarter, have been standing "with hands upraised and mouths agupe," for several days past, in consequence of the arrival in Washington ot Col Wm. H. Polk, a younger and only brother of the President elect; and since his entree among us, that incorrigible nuisance?rumor?has been on the qui vive, with every description of nonsense and flummery which could possible originate with a certain class of of lack-brains, who are "ever open to conviction," and ready to grasp at the marvellous. Every step, look, and act of the Colonel, has been watched, in expectation of the revenlnient ol something definite in reference to the future intents of the President that is to be. Now, it certainly requires so exces sive stretching of ihe imagination to determine in one's mind the probability that the object ot this distinguished gentleman's visit, at this particular time, is an important one. He comes as a sort of nvant courier, it is true, but nil that any cf those "half-breeched knaves" may gather from him they are welcome to. The Colonel is a member of the Sena*. ? of Tennessee?ia about thirty-three years old?is a fine-looking personage?is possessed of first rate talents, and knowsqnue enough ol human nature genet ally, und of politicians particularly, to keep a wary look-out in his movements and con versations. Whatever may be published, there fore, as coming from him, you may set down as premature and without basis, for he will not com mit anybody, under any circumstances. There is nothing of the sort about him. His confidence is extended to a few individuals only, whose own in terests will require their silence; and though he is the gentleman with all,and towards all,the "suck ers will glean no demonstrations from him. In spite of all that may be written hence on the sub ject, you may be sure (hat, whatever may be talked ol, nothing will transpire at present,from that quar ter. He tarries at Coleman's, where lie has been waited on, generally, by the members of Congress, and certain prominent strangers now in town. He has paid his respects to the President and the heads ot the several Departments?and much of his lime has been spent with Calhoun, Woodbury, Inger soll, Rantoul, Buchanan, Walker, McDuffie, Cave Johnson, Aaron Vail Brown? et id omne genus? but no developments will come out. He is close and circumspect (as he should be) and listening carefully to all that is said. He says but little him self,?in the meantime, however, keeping up an intense thinking. He will learn all that is essen tial, and leave the knowing ones as wise at bin exit as they were at his arrival Whatever may be the views and purposes of James K , nothing will be discovered by William H. The position cf John Tyler, at this crisis?in view of the course he has thought proper to pursue since the commencement of the late campaign?in creditable at least to his heart, if not to his head. There is no disputing the fact, that he has sacrificed much upon what he evidently believes to be the altar of his country's highest good, and he is about to retire from his elevated position, whence he will bear with him the hearty benedictions of the de mocratic party, whose cause he has labored to ad vance, and whose best interests have been care fully guarded during his administration. The fa mous letter which emanated from the Hermitage to Mr. Tyler, immediately after Mr. Polk1* nomi nation, and which was tilled with the moat fatherly appeals from ihe old " Hero of New Orleans"?did much towards affecting his withdrawal as n candi date in the Ute contest. No pledgee were required by Mr. Tyler?he waa above bribery?but he saw the threatening of the political storm?and his de sire to witness the triumph of the democracy, out weighed all peraonal or minor considerations. While he held in his hand th? balance of power he withdrew from the field, nad the energies of bio
