We refer our readers to the report of the pro ceedings of the Great Convention of the aboli tionists in Faneuil Hall, Boston?at which it was proposed, should Texas be annexed to this Union, to dino/ve the Union forthwith ! fW or War J-The United St.te. Sen.te. Ihe great questions of the annexation of Texas, md the occupation of the whole of the Ore Ron territory down to 54 degrees 40 minutes, it is admitted, will depend upon the action of the United States Senate. Each of these measures involving, perhaps not directly, but certainly not very remotely, peace or war both *ith Mexico and England, the importance of I the crisis .a which the Senate is now placed will at once be perceived. One party says that the in that body will stay the further progress of this irritating and dangerous question; and the other party assert, that under the action of public opinion, and the great excitement prevailing throughout the country, the whigs in the Senate must give way and follow the lead and dictation of ihe House of Representatives. Such is a brief view of the present position of these two questions in Congress. In the meantime external agencies are at work in every direction to operate not only on the House, but also on the Senate in the decision of these questions. In a few days it is expected that Mr. Calhoun will have finished his correspondence with Mr. Pakenharo on the subject of the Oregon, but that nothing will result, and that the President will deliver a mes sage 111 favor of takingimmediate possession of the whole of that territory. Such a movement on the part of ihe government of this country will of I course bring us into very serious collision with England, and on this ground it is feared that the Oregon question may have a much more serious effect on our foreign relations than the Texas question. It is evident aim that the temper and disposition of the people of this country are de cidedly in favor of taking possession of Texas nnd also of the whole of Oregon. The violence-the bitterness?the fierce denunciations of the British press and British statesmen, which come across the water by every steamship, only tend to influ ence and excite the people of this country to ad here to the policy that has been thus far adrpted and to carry it out to its remotest consequences whatever they may be, so far as our foreign rela tions are concerned, i Uun,i-1, howev" the Unitpd States Senme decide he. h these questions, great speculations will be in dulged in on both sides, by parties, nnd nothing can be accurately predicated of the fmare until the ? enate indicate their preferences for the one or (or the other. There is certainly a great apathy in the country in relation to these matters, for although the abolitionists and other advocates of abolition, are very busy organising conventions and calling' meetings to oppose these measures now in Con gress, yet it is very evident that the two great par ties are very quiet and fearful of committing them selves. The tendency of things, now. is, however to narrow down both these questions info a British view on one side, and an American on the other And as soon as this is clearly seen, as it must he very speedily, the bulk of both political parties in this country will at once decide on supporting their I own government, and go for both these meaeutes as presented hy the present administration, and the succeeding administration can offer no opposition to shoh a course, but must of necessity carry out the same policy to the fullest extent. I*ATK K KPItDlATlON MESSAGE OF THE GOVERNOR OF I KNNSYr.VAMA.-A good deal of sensation was created yesterday by the arrival of the Message of \ the Governor of Pennsylvania relative to the State 1 that wealthy community. This Message acquires importance from the influence which it may exercise on the general question of State re pudiation and Stare delinquency. Previous to its appearance, many efforts have been made to assure the public that the interest on this State debt would be paid beyond all question. It now appears from this document that there is a strong probability that no such thing will take place, and that Penn sylVama will continue for some time to come, in a condition of dishonor and disgrace. We refer our readers to the Message for the details. We cannot help characterizing the conduct of \ ennsylvania as indicated in this Message as the most contemptible and disgraceful that has ever yet been exhibited by any State of this Union in re|a t.on to its honest debts. No other State of this Union is better able to pay its debts thaa Pennsy Iva ma. Yet we see, year after year, this rich, pros perous,powerful State adopting the most contempti ?nd most disgraceful reasons, in order t?K!aVWK h!fldy for the ful1 nf ?hat debt. Why is this 1 Merely because the miserable politicians of both parties are afraid to go to their constituents after they have voted like honest men in favor of pavment of the debt. Several ot the newspapers, and particularly ihe mere parly prima in this vicinity, the JVewt and the nAune,are laboring hard lo cast the blame on the party to which they are opposed. The Tribune denounces the locofocos as repudmtors, and the Xem as vehemently screams out that only the are repudialors. Now here is Pennsylvania -confessedly a |ocotoco Stalp> ((f abun dant means but yet refusmg to pay one farthing of its debts. The same may be said of Maryland, a whig State. Rut it is .die to add any more on this subject Both parties are alike guilty?bolh have been alike instrumental in creating the debt, und both are alike culpable in skulking from ihe adop tion of the manly and upright honorable course of paying the mtereet wher, the ,|ay COmes Miss Bramson's Conoket -There was but a mo cerate attendance at this concert last evening, but the audience reined much pleaded with the play ing of the two young sisters, on the piano It they are carsfu'.'y and patiently trained they will no doubt become eminent musicians.

Tug Highland 'Hoard give their annual {ball 'si : 'Mblo's this evening Tub Oiue'idonk Cask?Public Opinion?Thk Morals opt lis Cleiov.?The excitement relative to tiie Onderdotikcaae, continues to spread rapidly iu all circles. The "book" of the trial, has been seized u(>oii with the greatest avidity, and is every where devoured with greedineea especially by the ladies. Some idea of the intensity and excitement may be fi>UB<l from the fact, that at the concert of the Euterpeau Society at Niblo's throihereveniny, three or lour copies of the " Bi?hop?* Book" were observed circulating amongst the audience during the intermissions iu the performance! The more we examine the evidence, the more matter we find illustrative ol the singular laxity of manners, which appear to characterize the social condition of the pious circles of the Episcopal Church. Mrs. Beare's evidence resembles very much that of Mrs. Butler. She thus describes the affectionate salutations of the Bishop: ? 18. Will you please state what occurred between you and the Bishop during that ride ? The Bishop put his arm around me in an unbecoming manner, which caused me to draw from him. There ii nothing more to statn ol that ride 19. On what part of your body did the Bishop put his hand when he put his arm around you as you have stated' IIis hand pressed upon my bosom SO. When did you first communicate the knowledge oi this transaction to any person, and to whom ? To my husband soon after we returned home , he walk ed home 91 What was said by you to your husband when you first communicated the fact to nim; aod what was his rely 1 T told . told him in this way; that I did not wish to ride with the Bishop in the afternoon, as I thought him too familiar in his manners. Ho asked me in what way. 1 told him the occurrence of the morning, and he expressed great sur p'ise. He said, "II you can avoid it, do not let it alter your manner towards him while he is iu our house." That was all. 93. You say you rode with the Bishop a second time that day ; from what place and to what place? From Mrs. Franklin's house to our house ; about a mile and a half. S3. State, an particularly as you can, what occurred be tween you and the Bishop on this last ride 1 The Bishop put his arm around my waist; then raised it, and put it across the hack ot my neck j he thrust his hanj into the neck of my dress, down into ir y bosom. 1 threw his hand from there ; he immediately put it upon the lower part of my person. I pushed it aside from there, and he then with the other hand repeated the same upon the other side of my person ; but removed it towards the centre of my person. I threw it aside. That is all. 31. When ho put his hand in the neck of your dress, on your bosom, was it, or not, your naked bosom 7 It was my naked bosom. 36. When he put the first hand on the lower part of vour body, as you have testified, was the outside ot the hand, or the palm of the hand, next to your person 7 The palm of the hand. 36 What did he do with that hand 7 He pressed it upon my person. 37. When he put the other hand upon your person, and removed it to tho -entre of your person, was the outside or the palm of his hand next to your person 7 The nalm of the hand 39 Please describe what he did with that hand, when on vour person. He placed it near my knee, and moved it along my leg, up to my hip, and the centre of my person. 39. is there any fuither answer to the last question 7 There is not. 40 Did you communicate the knowledge of this tran saction to your husband, and when 7 I went immediately to my room when we reached home. ?iy husbanl soon followed me. He asked the cause ot my agitation ; I told him the Bishop had insulted me. I Hi: replied, "Bay no more now ; let us join the family, and havn our evening devotions." I calmed myself, and I went down into tho room. ? ' ? * ? ? ? ? 6-2. in what manner did he take leave of you when he was about to depart ? He approached me and took my hand ; and advanced, as I supposed, to kiss mn; 1 drew from him, and he did not do it. I did not extend m v hand ; he took it After he was | 3catod in the carriage, he raised his hand to his lips, and ; waved it to me. _ Now it appears, that all this waa only according to the "use and wont" of the holy father, for in a ?subsequent part of Mrs. Beare's examination, we find the following curious passage:? 161. When, particularly, did the Bishop kiss you, in the manner you have stated 7 I think it was not long before we left for the afternoon service. 161. la what room was this 7 In our usual sittinrr room 183. Who was in the room besides yourself and the Bis hop 7 I recollect no one hut my mother, Beare. 164. Did she see this 7 She did. 166 Did you or she make any remark on the subject to tho Bishop J We did net. 166. Did the Bishop say anything, when he approached you for this purpose 7 It is my impression, that he made some such expres sien, as " my daughter " 167. Did yon at tho time regard these two circumstances In the house as insults to y ou 7 I hould have done so from any one else but the Bisnop. 164 Why not from the Bish p ? ' V* 'I" mucb confidence in him to suppose that he would otter me an insult in my own house. Really this throws a flood of light ou the man ners of the clergy in their intercourse with the fe male saints. These revelations recall very forci bly to our mind the singular developments made in this city on a trial in one of the civil courts, a year or two ago, relative to the peculiar manners and customs of the "check-apronites " In that particular cla-s it appeared that the intercourse of the males and females was marked by a singular degree of freedom and familiarity, hut not at all greater than is disclosed by the evidence on this trial, as being characteristic of the intercouse of the Bishop with the fair ones of his flock. Wheth er this peculiar " check-apronite" system of social intercourse prevails in other dioceses of the Epis copal Church, we know not, but presume that it does in the dioceses over which the Bishops who voted in favor of the Bishop of New York preside. This is, we presume, only a reasonable inference. | However, we are not positive ob this point. Time may give us additional developments. Thus far public opinion, judging from the ex pression of it in the newspipers, is decidedly against Bishop Onderdonk. The coarseness and brutality of his conduct towards the ladies who testified, could not, indeed, fail to excite public displeasure, in whatever light his actions might be regarded as indicative of purity of thought or in tention. The friends and acquaintances of the Bishop, on the other hand, consider that the evi dence itself exculpates him from censure, inae much as no really criminal result followed his af fectionate salutations, which they regard as mere innocent eccentricities of manner. Altogether, however, this case, from beginning to end, exhibits a lamentable departure from the pure and honora ble principles of Christianity. The grossly unbe coming conduct of the Bishop?the strange beha vior of the husbands of the ladier?the violent ani mosities of the Bishops who took part in the pro ceedings?the secret investigation and then the peddling of the record?and then the revolting attempt of the son of the accused party to make a few dollars out of his father's shame, all exhibit a melancholy and deplorable departure from the pre cepts of Jesus of Nazareth. And yet these are the men who claim a monopoly of piety and purity 1 I These are the rt^en who are accustomed to rail at the newspaper press and its conductors, and who j arrogate to themselves the title of the " salt of the I earth"- the conservatives of truth, honor, virtue, j and decency! We verily believe that were it j not for the independent portion of the newspaper press, the whole body of the clergy would soon be ' in r state of still greater degradation ihm that with which they sunk during the dark ages of the world. And this Onderdonk case has had at least the one good fflect of leading the public mind to reflect on this view of ihe subject, and we are encouraged to hope that enlightened public opinion will be here atter b-ought to bear in such a manner on the clergy and on all religious institutions,so as in some degree to purify them, and make them approach s unewhat more nearly to the apostolic model. ?nKAN fsTKAMRks ?It is now arranged that the Great Western, and Great Britain?the monster iron steamer?shall make seven trips this year. The Western leaves Liverpool on the 29ih of next March, and the Britain begins her career on the 2J of next Aucust. Sr. Gkohok's Society?Annual Ball ?The an nunl ball ol the St. George's Society 0f this citv will be given at Niblo's on the ISrh instant-St! Valentine's Eve. From the admirable arrange. mer,N of Messrs Walker and Tinson, and their associates of the commiltce, we arequite justified in believing that the affair will be elegant and br.l liant in the extreme. Only a limited number of tickets is issued, and as Ihey will no doubt soon be selling at a premium, early application will be pru dent. r Corruption in Hick* Pi.acrs at Washington.? The defalcation, rtcentiy made public, of the Cieik of the House of lt? presentativeo, appears to be only the first of a series of similar develop mi-nts, which will be brought out during the pre sent session, illustrating the gross corruption of all parties, aud all branches of the goveruinent. Ii seems that the edi'ors of the Globe, John Jonestoi the Madisonian, aud particularly the Tyler admi nistration, will all figure in these depredations upon the public treasury. An instance has al ready beeu given, showing how Blair and Rives of the Globe feathered their nest, by appropriating large sums of money in payment of particular books, furnished to the members, by whom they were afterwards sold at half cost. Blair and Rives retort upon John Jones, of the Madiionian, that he receives gratuities for employing his influ ence in distributing offices, and that he is (ed by the departments. On the other hand, we hear also strange stories about the Collector of Boston ?the mode in which he got his office?the inter ception of several of his private letters?and in sinuations thrown out that John Jones had the fingering of something in that appointment. In one of the HouseB of Congress, resolutions were brought in, asking for a full exposition, relative to the " Choctaw contract," as it is called, while, in the other House, stat-menls are made under the name of" Eugene O'Dnnnell"' respecting a per son of the name of " Colonel Zabriskie," of New Jersey, who is represented as haviug pocketed several thousands of dollars for supplying live oak, which he received merely for his political influence in getting the contract for the persons who complied with its provisions. But here is the statement of O'Donnell, which w? annex, as it presents a cu rious chapter in the annals of political corrup Some fifteen or eighteen month* ego. in a casual con versation I had with the late B. M. Voorhees, chief clerk of the Bureau oi Construction and Repairs, (an individual with whom 1 had been on terms of iamiiiar acquaintance for years,) he remarked he had a matter ot great import ance to communicate, and would willingly do so pro vided 1 promised not to divulge the matter, as its publicity must necessarily lose him his situation. I assure d him that no act oi mine would endanger his office, unless th< substance of the communication materially interested myself or my friends. His disclosure was to the follow ing ett'ect " That James C. Zabriskie, of New Jersey, had made application to the President for a certain contract, retire seating to him the sacrifices he had made in his service, personal and pecuniary; that he was completely out oi pocket, and that unless he favored him with this contract he must bo irretrievably ruined That the President told him he should have it, and as the natfireot the contract appertained to his office, he (Voorhees) was directed by the President to prepare the papers ; he did so; that a cei tain extensive contractor,then in the city,(supposed to b< Swift, of New Bedford, Massachusetts,) had agreed to give Zabriskie $11,000 for his bargain; which terms Zabriskie accepted ; that, when the papers were perfected, the con tractor changed his mind, and refused to pay more than $3000 ; that Zabriskie haggled far the original sum,(and that Voorhees, availing hiniseli of this hesitancy in the negotiation, and aware of the character of the transaction, stole a march on Zabri6kie, called upon the purchaser at Gadsby's Hotel, delivered him the papers, and pocketed the $30110; that Zabriskie talked lolty, stormed, and in sisted upon the whole of the money, thai he, (Voorhees,) laughed at his fury, held firmly to the cash, told him, (Za briskie.) he should give him but one half, ($4,000 ) which sum Zabriskie at last gladly accepted; that he, (Voor hees ) observed to him, lie knew he had $10'I0 of the mo ney to pay over to a certain individual; but who this in dividual was I did not at the time enquire, but I have rea son to suspect I have now oscortlined. This surmise is more than strengthened from the following incident: Pre vious to my taking any steps in this matter, 1 called upon Mr. , late Chief Clerk in the Navy Department, up prizing him of all the circumstances just stated, and the u'rociously corrupt interference of the Executive in this infamous transaction. Mr. was astonished ; ac knowledged he suspected as much ; that he apprehended it might seriously implicate the President and-Mr. Hon shaw, and that ail the papers connected with transaction ought to have passed through his hands, which was not the case, and that, if summoned before a committee, he would act as became him. I mentioned to Mr. ? my suspicion that Scott, the Navy Agent, was more or less concerned in the matter? collateral circumstances, independent of the close iali macy which subsisted between Voorhees and him, coun tenanced the supposition that he most probably was the recipient of the $1,000. Mr.?begged me to be very carrful?expressed his surprise at the imputation ; ssseit ing its impossibility, and his belief that such n rumn might prove highly prejudicial to Scott, especially as his re-nomination by Tyler was soon to be before the Senate I replied I m.ide no charge ; and there the matter ended. But, to my utter astonishment, on the following day, 1 gleamed from Mr. such information as places beyond all manner of doubt the criminal privity of Scott to this disgraceful business. Mr. observed that shortly alter I left the Navy Department Scott happened to dropio, when Mr. , in a bantering tone, remarked, " Whi Scott, it appears that you have got yourself iuto a prtttv scraps-that you are concerned in the Zanriaki? con tract;" further intimating to him the information which ho (Mr ) had obtained on the subject. Scott was electrified ; anxiously asked who had informed him ?? saying that only one other person besides himself wss privy to the matter?that he knew all about it?that Voor hees got $4 000, and that he (Scott) ought to have got some of toe money. Scott having been apprised of my intention, now that the decease of mv informant has placed him beyond the reach oi Executive vengeance, as well as released the undersigned from the obligation of secrecy?Scott having thus learned my intention of enlistiDg all the honor ana virtue, and cnurnge. and patriotism of Congress in the in vestigation of this detestable case of bribery and corrup tion, baa taken the alarm, and called a few days since upon the best and dearest friend I have on earth, soliciting hii interference to dissuade me from prosecuting this matter ; but be has mistaken his man ; for this very gentleman, my respected and inestimable friend, would do the last man en earth to protect inlamy or screen corruption in any individual, however exalted in rank, depraved in sen timent, or debased in condition. eugene McDonnell. According to all these accounts, it is plain that the grossest corruption prevails at Washington in the distribution of office?in the appropriation of the public money?and in the management of the public finances?on all hands and by almost all parties. We trust, now that the general subject is broached, Congress will go on and sift every thing to the bottom If there be anything worse or more corrupt in Tylerism that in any of the other parties, we should like to know it; but as yet we believe that Tylerism is not a more expensive evil that any other ism which has preceded it in the management of public affairs. Mr. Tyler, as Pre sident of the Uni'ed States, and in the manage ment of public measures, has conducted himself with a good deal of talent and discretion, and we will say patriotism. He had a difficult task to per form, and he has surmounted the difficulties which beset him with a commendable degree of success But his dispensation of the offices in his gift?his efforts to acquire political influence through that dispensation?have been the most censurable part of his administration, and will always redound to his discredit. His confidential advisers ave been a set of the meanest and most contemptible men that ever surrounded a President; and they have led him astray in the most laughable and ridiculous way. We trust the day will come when his eyes will be fully opened to these errors. Biography of Captain Ryndkru.?The notorie ty of the celebrated Don Giovanni of the demo cracy, greatly increased by recent events, has given rise to an inquiry uf'ter his birth, life and adventures It appears that the gallant Captain is a native of this State, having been born some where in Saratoga county?that he received ihe first rudiments of his education on board North River sloops and steamers, in whieh he served as a hand, and that he is in fact, in every sense of the phrase, a Hudson River boy. His life has been full of romantic adventures in all quarters of the world. He is now about forty years of age?dark complexion?a little over the middle height?and with an iron frame and constitution. We expect to be able to publish to-morrow or next day a bi graphy of the Captain, from the day of his bit down to the organization of ihe fatuous " Empi Club," embracing an appendix with all the gre doings of that renowned body?its successful floi in the. election of Mr. Polk, and recently its un vailed tact in managing the affairs of Old Tamm ny. This will be a most interesting biograph and form a most important portion of the literatu of this age.

These accounts are twenty four hours in advance of the regular mail. The intelligence from Mexico is, that Santa Anna has been thot. This, however, needs confirma tion. Bat the accounts which we give below, tend to convince us of the accuracy of the intelligence we published yesterday, of the defeat of Santa Anna by Paredea. The most important peace of information from Texas is the itniyia letter of Duff Green, explain ing his difficulties with the President of Texas. It seems that Dull, out of his generosity,wanted to aid and assist the President of Texas in arranging all the foreign aflatrs of that interesting Republic with Mexico, England, and the United States. Pre sident Jones declined his august aid, and annulled his consulship?that was all. [From New Orleans Paper*, Jan. 22.] The steamship John 8 M Kim, Capt. Moore, arrived here yeste day from Galveston bringing papers to thi 18th intt. inclusive. In the papers we have some farther account of Dud' Green's difficulty with President Jones. First, we have the proclamation ol his Excellency dated O c 31st, 1814, revoking the recogniti jn of Green, as Consul ot the United States for Galveston, in which his reasons for this courso are set forth, to the effect thai " Owing to aircumrtancea known to the Executive, tin inter* sts, honor, and safety of the Republic require lha 'he authority, so extended, as aforesaid, to the said Duff Green, be revoked? Three days alter the date of this proclamation. Green caused the loilowing letter to be published in the Houston Telegraph:? Washington, Texas, Jan. 2,184S. The ('resident of Texas, on account, as ha alleges, ol private and confidential conversation between him and myself, has issued his proclamation revoking the txqus tar, recognizing me as Consul at Galveston. He is en deavoring to make it a matter between this government and that of the United States. This would b J to play into the hand* otthe British Miuister, and lavor the purposes which the President and some of those about him are sup posed to be anxious to accomplish. The whole matter is private and personal between the President and myseii and r am resolved that it shall remain so. At present the proclamation has been suspended, and an effort is being made by mutual friends to bring about a reconciliation.? it seems to me that President Jones has intentionally sought a quarrel without cause ; it so, no reconciliation con take place, beeause having taken his course under the advice of evil counsellors, tho same influence will prevail. In that case, I must expect to encounter the combined influence oi the British Minister and the Presi

dent of Texas ecting in concnrt for the purpose of defeat ing the wishes of a majority of the people of Texas and the United States. I am aware of the fearful odds again*, me, but I am not dismayed. AH that 1 now ask is thai public opinion be suspended, until I can place the facts fully before the country, when it will be found that the President of Texas has not the slightest possible cause for the manner in which he has treated ms. I write this note for the purpose of saying, in advance, that while I intend to vindicate my own character, 1 in tend to do it in my own way, and at the proper time?that ! will not, if 1 can prevent, permit the personal injustice done to me, to become the cause of a controversy betweeB the two Governments, or in any way to retard or aflect the question of annexation, and to ask the favor of you to publish this, it, in your opinion, it becomes necessary to correct any erroneous impressions which may get abroad. Very respectfully yours, DUFF GREEN. Editor Telegraph, Houston. Not having succeeded in his first attempt to place him self in n respectable position, our diplomat wrote a second letter, which was published in the National Remitter, e paper published at Washington. Here it is: To the Editor of Rrtitter. Sir?The President's proclamation, revoking my ex q'latur, as Consul at Galveston, has given rise to many rumors, and as be has said that it was because the inter est, honor and safety of the Republic required it, these rumors are to my prejudice. A regard for my charoctei demands an unqualified contradiction of the rumors in question. It is said that I endeavored by improper meant to obtain the Executive sanction to tho measures about which I consulted him. So far from this being true. I was acting, as I believed, in concert with him, in pro moting measures which, as I supposed, had his cordial approbation. A The purpose of mr last conversation, was to consult him on tho details, there being, as I nelieved, a perfect concurrence on the measures themselves. It w ill be seen, therefore, that I could have had no passible inducement to intimidate or to use any improper means to influenci his official action. What those measures are it is not now necessary to ex plain further than to say that their chief object was to arrest the progress of Biitish infiuenc" on our western and north-western frontier, and especially to prevent their getting possession of .'he country between the Nueces and the Rio Grande for the purpose of establishing there a colony of free blacks and runaway negroes, experience having 1 demonstrated that their black colony in Canada, like thei abolition in Jamaica, is a failure I have many very im portant tacts, bearing upon this subject, which it is my purpose, in due time, to give to the public. I learn also, that rumor says that one of my objects war to bring into T.ixas n largo body of Indians ; so far from this, one of the measures which 1 proposed was to remov> beyond our limits, the Indians that are now in Texas. I repeat, that I supposed that the President fully con curred in my views, and that I am bound in charity to be lieve that be acted under a misapprehension, and will yet do me the justice to say se An you have published the proclamation, I ask tho favor of you to insert this likewise, and 1 trust that all who nublhh the proclamation will publish this note. p v DUFF GREEN. President Jones has vetoed the Bill for the removal o' the tpubUc offices to Austin immediately after the ad journment of the present Congress. The Civilian of tho 18th inst, says?" Wc learn that much siakness, in the character of an epidemic, prevails at Washingten, though the precise nature ol the disease I is not stated Hon J.W.Smith, Senator trom Bexar died on the morning of the 12th inat., and Major Dooelaon the U. 8. Charge d' Affaires, is reported to be quite un well, though he is regarded as out of danger." It was thought at Galveston that Congress will adjourn at the close ot the present, or beginning oi the next mopth We learn from the Civilian that a proposition isbsfore that body to change the Constitution in reference to the naturalization ol foreigners. The same paper says: The Con mittee of Finance have reported adversely ot the measure of Free Trade; though the subject of a reouc tion of the Tariff' continues to be discussed, and the Fi nance Committees of the two Houses have made separate repirts, varying bnt little in subatance, and both recom mending " a very limited reduction in the tariff." Gen. Hamilton, Judge Longstreet, and Gen. Mercer of Va , have a-rlved at Galveston. The.

II American vessels have endeavored tosmugglr in our waters, it is evident that they subject themselves to seizure and confiscation, as the law directs." It it reported thst an officer engaged in the collection of the revenue on the Saoine, has lately fired several shots into an American vessel engaged in smuggling on that river. There being no 'reaty between Texas and the United States prohibiting the right of search, this officer is determined to take the responsibility, and compel all American vessels to submit to visitation, and if they have contraband goods on board, tbey will be liable to forloit ure and sales, as thai law directs, Uncle Sam's vaporing to'the contrary notwithstanding. Some persons fear that the high handed meaaurea of this revenue officer may lead to a war with the United States; but there will be little danger of rousing the national pride ol the Amen cans, while so large a party in the United States cordial ly uphold the Mexican Minister of Stste for insulting Mr Shannon and the whole American government.

SIDNEY SHERMAN, President. This verdict is what might hare been expected. It ha* never been denied that Commodore Moore was "guilty of disobedience of orders i" but he was so situated that it was impossible for him to obey This fact aeoms to have hern taken into conaideration by the Executive, for we ob serve that he refuaed his assent to the finding of the court, though, from the language of the Texan journals, we are at a loss to know whether it wsa President Hous ton or President Jones who refused to approve the ver dict At all events the Commodore is acquitted of the seriona charges made against him.
