Price 64 cents. Periodical Literature?.The North American Kevrlevr. We took occasion the other day to review that portion of the magazines of the country which is devoted to the belles lettres, love stories and the fashions. We now pass to a somewhat more pre tending class of periodical works, which are sup posed to occupy the highest department of review and criticism. Amongst the oldest and most res pectable of this class, we find the North American Review, which has maintained an existence of va ried importance and vigor for a number of years It affects a very exalted and dignified tone, nnd considers itself in relation to the worthless and other periodicals of the day, as quite a "Triton among the minnows." It may be, therefore, worth while to examine its claims to such a position, and the amount of its services in advancing the literature of the country. The North American Review, under the manage ment of Mr. Tudor, one of its earliest guardians, acquired considerable notoriety, on account of the strength and originality ol some ?t the papers which appeared in its pages; and subsequently under the management of Mr. Everett, now American Min ister in London, it was distinguished by many articles in which educated taste and scholarship were displayed in no mean degree. It afterward fell into the. hands of the Rev. Mr. Sparks, and was then devoted so much to historical subjects that it lost a good deal of its forther character as a general review. For some time past, it has been subjected to the control of the young literati ot Boston and New England, and at the present mo ment furnishes verdant evidence of its be'mg still under the same intellectual cultivation. We have the last number of this Review before us, and with the exception of two short articles de voted to mere local subjects?one on the "Condi tion and Wants of Harvard College," and the other on the " Teachers of the Boston Schools," we do not find one possessing the least claim to originali ty or importance. One long and prosy article is given to "Mrs. Grant of Laggan"?another is a schoolboy's essay on the " Characteristics of Lord Byron"?a third is a review ol a reprint of "Neal's History of the Puritans"?and another is an unsa tisfactory abridgement of iwo cheap books in eve ry body's hands descriptive of expeditions to San ta Fe. Such, with the exception of another arti cle which we are about to notice more particular- ] ly, is a synopsis of the principal contents of the last number of this Review, which pretends to be one of the great oracles ol opinion and criticism in this couutrv! And such is a fair sample of its character and value for some time past. Second hand reviews of second-hand books?florid and la- i bored essays which might possibly pass muster as college exercises?puerile articles 011 subjects ol no possible public interest?these makeup the con tents of this periodical which arrogates to itself 'he right of sitting in judgment on the literature and movements of the age. It need not, then, be wondered at, that conducted in such a manner, this Review commands so little regard either at home or abroad, and is entirely useless as a means of elevating our national literature, enlarging the boundaries of knowledge, or communicating a vigorous and healthy tone to public opinion. But the present number ol this North American Review crntains one article, besides those we have mentioned, which is worthy of particular rematk, inasmuch as it discovers that not only is the peri odical deficient in the necessary attributes of talent, originality, and intellectual strength, but that it equally lacks that honesty and strict impartiality which are indispensable in a respectable and influ ential literary tribunal. The article to which we reter purports to be a review of an exceedingly in teresting and able article on the "Chemistry of Plants," which has been recently published by I Professor Draper, of this city. 'I his work is one the most creditable contributions to the scientific literature of this country, which has been made for many years. It consists of a collection of memoirs which have been separately published during the last nine or ten years in our own and European scientific journals. They have commanded marked attention, and the original views of Dr. Draper have formed the basis of some of the most modern physical theories, Professor Moier founding his doctrine ef vision on experiments detailed in these memoirs.and other portions of the work havingjbeen used by Professor Poggendorf asof final authority in the decision of the controversy relative to Faraday's theory of the Voltaic battery.? Such iB the work which the North American Re view treats with the greatest contempt, deriding its claims to originality, and characterizing it as a mere compilation of what is to be found in our school-books! The whole article in the Review appears, indeed, to be the production of some jealous and malignant teacher of chemistry, who envies the rapidly augmenting fame of Dr. Draper, and who tally discovers the hopelessness of his rivalry, by committing such blunders as discover his utter ignorance even of the elements ?f the acience on which he pretends to enlighten, as he says, " after his own fashion," the readers of the Review. The reviewer finds especial fault with Dr. Draper's style, which he represents as "frothy" and " tropically luxuriant," whilst he himself, in this very article, affects to be quite poetical in his description of the interesting process of vegetation, and, in the midst of what is intended for a scien tific definition, introduces a blasphemous allusion to a Scripture metaphor, and actually perpetrates a vile pun upon the words of the inspired record !? If, in its treatment of matters of science, this Review discovers such ignorance, bad taste, and malignity, what can we expect in its discussion of any other departments ol literature or philosophy, or what opinion are we left to pronounce on its pretensions to the character and position of a can did, just and enlightened censor of books and opinion 1 The truth is. this Review, and the whole class of periodicals 111 this country to which it belongs, be little and degrade the character of our national literature. Its conductors are immeasurably be hind the (spirit of the age?arrogaut, conceited, and uninlormed, they are capable merely of dealing out common-places, second-h ind-isms.or, as in the instance before, the petty jealousies of petty cliques, and that, too, only in such a diluted, milk-and water lorm, that even the malignity is utterly harmless. There is infinitely more intellectual strength expended?more practical philosophy dis played?and a more salutary and abiding influ ence exerted on public opinion, in a single num ol an independent daily journal like the Herald, than 111 a dozen volumes rf this pompous, inflated, ttnd puerile North American Review,wvh its sopho more criticisms, paid lor at the rate ot one dollar per cage, and an infamous shave at that. It h indeed only to the liberal, intelligent, antf in dependent daily journalism of this country, that we ire to look tor the creation, advancement, and maintenance of a national literature. ?Singular Disclosure--? I he War for tub Succession and Spoils.?The following letter!row Hon. H A. Foster, U. S. Senator from NewYork, appears in the ItuhmoHil EnyuirtT. It speaks for itself?what has Silas Wright to say 1 To THt EDITORS OflHI Kwttl'IKtR? W ashinu ton, January 31. 1846 Gentlemen?1 perceived last evening in an article in the 'Richmond Enquirer," noticing a tumor that Gov Wright, ol New York, had interfered to prevent the election ot Mr. Dickinson and myself to the United States senate, and that Grville Robinson, a member ol Con gress Irom that State, had wntteu a letter to Albany for tho same purpose, that you appear to eoubt thecoirect ne?? of the rumor. I am not surprised at your unwil lingness to believe that Governor Wright has used his official influence to rtl'ect an election, which the Consti tutiou has devolved on the Legislature ; but tho course of Mr. Kobioion, to those acquainted with him, is uot u matter for surprise The rumors, however, in regard to both ate true. Kor at least a week oefoie the nominating caucus was held, Mr. Wright, fri quently in conversation with Senators and members ol Assembly, expressed bis decided opposition to our election. This, none of Mr. Wright's friends will deny; for I huve the letters oi se veral members of the Legislature, and of other highly respectable citizens, stating that he so declared Limsell to them, and to others iu their presence. On the 3lat of December, Mr. Robinson wrote a letter to Mr. A.C. Klagg, the present comptroller oi New York, (who has for many years been the intimate and confiden tial friend of Mr. Wright, and whose name will probably be preseuted to the Prusident Klect lor a seat in his cabi net ) evilently designed to aifVct the election oi Sena tors ; and Mr. Klagg Ireely circulated copies of the latter as well as the original, among the members ol tue Legis lature, in the words following ?' Hon. A C. Flaoo:? , .. _ , "M* D? ak SiKt-The recent letter of Mr. Foster to Slnmm.and other events which have lately transpired here, leads me to the oonclusion, that neither he nor Mr. Dickinson should be elected to the Senate. "It is well understood here.that both are in tavor ol Cal houn's plan for the annexation of Texas, and that both will go into the support ol him anl all his measures. Calhoun thinks his salvation depends on this election, and he and his friends reason in this way, that they (I and D ) are not favorites of Mr. Wright, and that Mr Wright does not want them elected ; and if, under such circumstances, thsy are elected, it will be considered a triumph and an evidence that the position taken by Mr Wright on the Texas question was wrong, &c. "1 look upon the final action af our Legislature upon this subject.as settling the complexion of the administra tion of Col Polk. If Foster and Dickinson are sent back hare, the administration will be more or less under the control of Mr. Calhoun, and all its patronage and power will bo turned against Mr. Wright for the successor. "From present appearances,! incline to the opinion that no proposition fot the annexation of Texas can find its way through the House at this session. Its friends begin to despair, and are afraid to approach the discussion of it, and from the multiplicity of plans, which have been in troduced, you see there is a great diversity or opinian among its friends. In regard to the modus operandi, the democratic members from our State, with one txception (Ellis), I believe, will go against McDuffie's resolution. "Mr. Dauby, General Davis, of Troy, and others. Irom our State, are here, and it is understood that they will leave hete in a day or two lor Albany, to aid Foster and Dickinson. . w Veryre.pectfully your obd't. servant, Dec. 31 1844 " You will perceive that this letter not only proves the interference of Mr. Robinson, but also of Mr. Wright; and shown plainly the grounds of interference; for, it is writ ten by one of Mr. Wright's professed personal friends, to one who is confident, and by him circulated for more than two weeks bt-fore the election among tho members ol the Legislature, under the eye of Mr. Wright. 1 have also been furnished with an extract of the sub stance of a letter of Mr. Robinson, which was also circu lated at Albany. It is as follows ? ' Dickinson and Foster have taken ground iniavorofthe annexation of Texas. This is Calhoun's ground-one to 1 which Mr. Wright is opposed and voted against. If you elect D. and F . you give the pro-Texas party a prepon derating influence with the Incoming administration. It was lor a time here the opinion of many whom ? consul ted, that it would be wrong to go for D. and D., (Dtckin ?on and Dix)? but upon reflection, we have come to the conclusion that no such proposition should be entertain eil If Dickinson should be elected, we would lose the influence we desire?New York would be divided, and lose her influence. If D. and F. should be defeated, the former as well for the short ss long term,we should show a front such as Mr. Polk dare not make head against. On the character of these letters and their use, mani festing as they do an intent to seize upon the administra tion of President Polk, and to use its power and influence for personal objects, and upon their want of truth, it is not my purpose to comment. A more proper occasion will doubtless occur. My only object at present is, to place the action of Messrs. Wright and Robinson correct ly before the public. 1 am, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, HENRY A. FOSTER. This a singular disclosure, certainly, and proves to the letter the statements which we have been making for many months past relative to the dis turbances in the democratic party, caused by the adherents of Mr. Calhoun on one eide and those of Silas Wright on the other. It will be recollect ed that when we made these statements on the I difficulties of the party, the democratic journals, generally, scuuted at their accuracy ; but it is now seen from this and numerous other developments, that matters are coming to a crisis. This is merely the beginning of the game?the commencement of the war for the succession?the end of which no one can tell. The most probable issue will be the total defeat and prostration of both Mr. Wright and Mr. Calhoun, and the selection, when the time comes, of some unknown third man, as in the case of Mr. Polk. In the meantime the whig party ought not to lose their vantage ground. As matters are now forming and shaping themselves, we should not be at all surprised if another revolution takes place in 1848, similar to that in 1840. The policy of the whigs is to adhere to their present position?to al low the abolitionists and the " natives" to run to seed, and perish, as they must eventually, if let alone for a year or two?to avail themselves of the singularly conflicting position of the different sec tions of the democratic party?to give a manly, fair, and honorable support to Mr. Polk, as far as they consistently can, and when the time comes round in 1848, to bring forth their candidate. But they must by no means bring forth a mere politi tician, hackneyed in the ways of that unfortunate class of men, but some individual distinguished for his services to the country, and connected with its history, such as General Scott. Neither Mr- Web ster, nor Mr. Clay, nor any other man that we can I think of at this moment, has any chance to be elected by the whigs in 1848. They lost the elec tion of Mr. Clay principally through the misman agement of the " native" and abolition movements They have an immense party yet to back them, and with discretion, magnanimity and forbear ance, and availing themselves of all the advantages now within their reach, they may yet gain power in 1848. Continuance of Good Sleighing, Accidents, &c.?The sleigh bells went as merrily as ever yes terday, and apparently without any diminution in number ; Broadway, the Bowery, and other parts presented as gay and animated an appearance as at any time of the two previous days. On Thursday, as one of the Harlem sleighs con taining about 40 passengers, was driving along Bowery, to avoid another that was coming in an opposite direction, it ran into one of the large snow banks and completely turned over, covering every one of the passengers beneath it. Considerable alarm was excited, and every assistance was promptly rendered by the passers-by to release the parties Irom their dangerous and uncomfortable position, when it was fortunately found that no one was materially hurt, but many of them much frightened than damaged. The sleigh was soon righted and proceeded on its way as if nothing particular had occurred. About half past nine o'clock yesterday morning as a gentlman of the name of Biddle, residing in Eleventh sireet, was crossing Broadway, near the end of Broome street, he was knocked down by a light sleigh, und dragged by it a considerable dis. tance ere the horse could be stopped, the animal treading upon him several times. He was taken up quite insensible, his clothes torn in various paria, blood gushing from his head and mouth, and con veyed to Dr. Gray's, 496 Broadway, where his wounds were dressed, add every attention paid to him that was required. The gentleman, al though very much bruised, we believe, was not so much injured as to endanger his life. He was shcrtly afterwards conveyed to his residence. The deep cutting on the Harlem railway was completely filled up with the snow that had fallen on the previous days, so as to entirely prevent the line besng used. A number of men and carta were employed on Thursday and yesterday to remove it, so that it is expected that the sleighs belonging to the company will be able to proceed by that route to their destination this morning. There were several very narrow escapes yester day at the crossing of Broadway between Fulton and Nassau streets, but we did not hear of anything very serious occurring. Hai.e and the Bishop's Book.?The Journal of Commerce has a very curious paragraph in defence ot the publication of the trial of Bishop Onder donk, including also the price paid lor the copy right, and all the profits accruing to the publishers. Our coteinporary seems to think that it was abso lutely necessary to publish the whole of that evi dence?however much it comes in competition with the licentious literature of the present day?in order to justify the conduct ot the Court ot Bish ops before the community and to satisfy the public that the sentence ot Bishop Onderdonk was justly awarded against him on account of his private con duct. Perhaps there is some reason in this as there is in the roasting of eggs. What is most to be ob jected to, atter all, is the miserable hypocrisy ot these divines as indicated by their sneers and accu eations against the press generally, for doiag, in a modified degree, and with purer motives, that which they themselves have ju?t done?publishing to the world the records of vice and crime. How of ten have we seen the Bishopsand the clergy of that and other churches rail by the hour against thi ne wspaper press tor publishing reports ot those ca ses of crime, disclosed in the public courts of jue tice, the publication of which tends materially to deter aud intimidate others from sinning in the same way ! These holy men are very ready to ex claim against the conductors ot the newspaper press for these reports, but it is altogether a ditlerent thing when they are called on to indulge in similar conduct of a broader character and more extensive injury to public decency and public morals. But the truth is, it is not with the publication ot the proceedings on the trial that the community find fault with the Court of Bishops Ic is with the peddling out of that report?the selling ot it to the highest bidder?the putting it up at auction as it were for thirty pieces of silver, and then the spe culations, not only of the accusers, but also of tlr accused, and their connections, all endeavor ing to make as much money out of the whole affair, and the whole degradation and disgrace of th<= church and.individuals, as they possibly could, m if it were as legitimate a business as that of selling one's Lord and Master. The whole affair, from its inception to its present position reflects anything but credit and respectability sn the Episcopal church and the Episcopal clergy, and the selling of that book in the circumstances for eight hundred pieces of silver, and the hawking of such disclosures from one end of the country to th< other, at two or three shillings a copy, will tend more to injure the respectability, character, and in fluence of the Episcopal church and all connected with it, than anything that has ever taken place in the last half century. That book is broad and burr ing evidence that there is something wrong in th? pious and holy circles- of the Episcopal church, and that if the divine light from heaven had been per mitted to shine upon their councils and to guide their action in the smallest degree, even equal to a single jet from the weakest gas-light of the New York Co., we never would have seen two of the principal Bishoprics ot the Episcopal Church in this country dishonored and disgraced in the manner that they have been dur ing the last year. It is utterly impossible that the two Onderdonks, both elevated from the lowesi rank in the church to the highest,could have reach ed that position of honor unless there was some thing wrong in the morals of the pious and holy circles of the church. It will be our purpose to investigate this subject at a future day, and to bring to the examination as much light and fact as re cent developments both in Pennsylvania and New York may place within our reach. Italian Opera?Prospects for a New Sea son.?A reigning topic of conversation in musical circles, and among our exquisites, fashionable loal ers, &c , is the prospect for a new Opera season. We have heard that there is some intention of or ganizing a company with Signori Pico and Valtel Una, (late Majocchi,) Sanquirico, Antogniai, and Valrallina TKa UHioa ?? hnth ttUS ro-taprtin ot, and the company would feel the want of a soprano, did they attempt to produce any opera calculated to make a decided impression. Some few minor pieces they might get up, but they could do nothing without a soprano that would restore the interest which the public were beginning to take in the Opera. To supply this want of a soprano, we havt Madame Otto, a very powerful and effective sing er, well known to the public, and Madame Ar noull, who is also an excellent singer, but less fa miliar with stage business. Thus we have among us materials for a very fair company?but it re mains to be seen whether they possess sufficient adhesive properties to come together so as to make themselves felt by the public. There is a great want of harmony among the artists, which we fear will prevent any thing satisfactory from being effected. They quarrelled first at Niblo's, when it is said injustice was done to Madame Valtellina; and subsequently at Palmo's, even when they had organized themselves into a democratic brother and sisterhood, they could not keep from squab blings, which, fomented by certain persons with out, who assume to be leaders aud oracles in such matters, led to the recent explosion. This, occur ring as it did, at the very moment when the public had begun to take a paying interest in the Opera, has gone far to destroy that interest, and to disin cline them for any more experiments. Even if the new company Bhould be organized, the public have no security that it will not be broken up again by its own ridiculous dissensions, as soon as things begin to get into a prosperous and hopeful condi tion. At all events, it will require a satisfactory probation of good conduct and good music, to re store the Italian Opera in this city to the position it so unnecessarily and foolishly lost, through the quarrelling oi the artists. Agricultural Products.?There was a serious error in the tables published yesterday. All the statements of 1844 were inserted under the year 1848. They are corrected in the Weekly Herald. Bishop Hughes' Lecture.?We have in type a report of Bishop Hughes lecture on Thursday even ing, which is deferred until to-morrow, owing to want of room. Welch's Equestrian Company at the Park Theatre ?There is to be a grand juvenile treat this afternoon, by this unrivalled company of eques trians at the Park. Something quite novel and amusing may be expected. On these occasions true happiness may be witnessed in the merry and beautiful little faces of the youthful portion of the audience, so as to enliven those mors advanced in years and make them for a time forget the care with which they are surrounded. Tremendous Fire at Wetumpka, Ala.?Ws have received the following letter from our corres pondent at Wetumpka: Wetumpka, Jan. 29,1845. Dear Sir:? This morning our city was visited by one of the most destructive fires that ever occurred iu this section of the country. It was first discovered about 2 o'clock, in the store of J. S. Oliver, and before many couidgetto the spot,the whole "town" was enveloped in names. The number of build ings destroyed is about forty, comprising nearly the whole business part of the place. The stores of McElroy it Co.. Trimbell it Co., LBcy it Co , Catlin, Winns, r. S. Ilurd, Dale it Ives, O. E. Adams, and several more, that I do not recollect at this moment, are entirely destroyed. Very few were insured. McElroy's policy was out a few days ago, and was not renewed. i forgot to men tion the following buildings besides the stores. The Post Office, American Hotel, Hatchell's cotton warehouse, containing upwards of 3,000 bales of cotton, ana T. Johnson's new book store. The whole loss is estimated at $200,000 Mr. R 8. Perase, William and James Douglass, Ready it Houghton, are the only stores remaining. Mr. Oliver saved neither his clothes nor his money. R. Very Late prom Baubadoes.?By the arrival at Wilmington, N.

Extent op the Storm, flee.?We give further extracts to-day relative to the storm, showing thai it extended hundreds of miles north, east, west, and south of us, and that this city was the centra of its violence. The mails are not yet regulated. There are stil two due from the south, three or tour from tht west, and two from the east. Those from the lai ter point are probably detained by the immem< quantities of ice in the Sound which extends fron one side nearly to the other. The New Champion from New Haven, arrived yesterday, had to forc< herself through fields of it. We received of Adams dc Co., late lastnighi, Boston papers of Thursday, in advance of the mails. One mail arrived yesterday from the south anr our special southern express came in twenty-four hours ahead of it with dates from New Orleans < ? the 29th ult.

All the northern mails are in; the trips r.n the. route are now regular. Our rivers, harbor, and bays are full of floatin. ice, presenting from the Battery a Bight worth see ing. The ferry boats make their trips with cons - derable difficulty. We learn that Capt. Dixon, the commaider o the "Brooklyn" ferry steamer, saw a boat iB r. dangers situation, surrounded by acres of ice. H> went to its assistance, and succeeded in rescuing i, man who was in it from his perilous situation When taken ofi.the man had lost both of the oar?: the bottom of the boat was broken in by the ice. and he was standing up to his knees in wate keeping her afloat by bailing. At the time of hi rescue he was in a state of exhaustion, and it wa with difficulty that he was restored to animation. The ship reported ashore yesterday near Hemp stead, proves to be the Sheffield, from Hull. W< learn that the captain, crew and passengers were all landed in safety. The U. S. steam cutter , Captain Hunter, sailed yesterday to the assistance of the vessels reported ashore?also to relievi others on the coast. The lighter schooner Excel sior was also despatched by the Insurance Com panies to the assistance of the Sheffield. Tht drift ice still continues iu the harbor. TFrom Albany'Argua, Feb. 6.] ? now ,tonn of 'be last 86 houra, has been of th> old-fashioned soit, that dissipates the notion that the win ter has forgotten to set in. The snow is of a depth to make capital sleighing, if not too much drifted, which it probable. The fall of snow west, we understand, has been greater than in this region. The train west of Utica had noi reached that city yesterday, when the Schenectady ami Albany train started. Nothing therefore west ot Utica. .

New York Pilots.?We perceive by the Albany paper#, that the pilot# of this city have petitioned the Legislature respecting their wrongs, and that Governor Wright ha# sent in a special message ou the subject, in which he observe# that the de mands of the pilots are ju#t, and recommends the Legislature to call the attention of Congress to them. The memorial of the pilots claims either that th< restrictions oi the State pilot law shall be repealed, or that all the pilots of this port shall be subjected to the same restrictions. Is not this lair and jus enough 1 We annex a few extracts of the GovernorV message Executive Ciiambkb, ) Albany, Feb. 3, 1845. J To the Legiiluture : ? I herewith transmit s memorial from the pilots of New York,which has been placed in my bands by a committee front the body of the Dilots, with a request that I wouh) cause it t) be laid before the legislature, and invoke its consideration of the subject of it. I deem it but just to that class of public commercial agents to comply with their request. Long belore the establishment of the Federal Govern ment the State of New York, as a colony, and as a State bad mode the pilotage oi the port of New York a subject of legislative reguwtlou, and after that time, up to th< passage by Congress, of the act of 1837, before referred to it had been subject, end only subject, to its exclusive legislation. Tbis, with the extensive and constantly In creasing commerce ol that port, had naturally raised up a body of pilots, who made piloting vessels into and out ol that port their profession or calling, and who depended upon that business for the support of themselves and their families. The rigid provisions in reference to their quali flcations and skill, which had for a long term of years cha racterixe lour legislation upon the subject, had made it i? profession difficult and expensive in the acquirement, and it was the policy of those laws to give i? commensurate value, by confining the business, a* in other professions, to pilots duly and legally licensed. I believe I may saj that, as a body of men, during all this period, the pilots < 1 the port of New York would bear a favorable compariaon with the pilots oi any other port In the Union, or in the world, whether as to their fidelity and skill as pilots, o , their patriotism and respectability as citizens. ^ Acting under the impression that these charges (of hsv j ing been the cause of the loss of two vessels ) were just ly mSfie against the pilots, as ia believed,Cong' eaa paased i the law of 1837. which haa been quoted, having lor its obj et to introduce competition from the adjoining Stab of New Jersey, to break up the supposed injurious mono poly, and to secure vigilanoe on tho part of the pilots. It canno' fail to be seen that this legislation on the per' of Congress, was very partial in its application, only a) fectingthe Pilots oi those ports and harbors, the waten of which embraced a boundary between state*. So also the principle, that Congresi can make a law o< oi e state operate in another, or give to a license granted by the authority oi one state, force in another, appear* ti me to be equally unsound and dangerous. It is assuming that Congreas may,as a mode ol exercising a federal now er, adopt the legislation existing or prospective, of the states and give to it federal extension and supremacy, in stead of legislating itself te carry the power into effect - These objections appear to me to exist against the law oi Congress of 1837, without questioning the full power o' Congress to legislate itself as to the whole subject of pi lots and pilotage, a power the existence of which it is not my purpose to admit or deny, upon this occasion^ I The result of the investigation waa te show, as I be lieve to the satisfaction of all, and to produce the univer sal admission, that the charge* instituted against the New York pilots were wholly unfounded, and that the loss of the vessels was in no way attributable to any negligent or fault, on their part. This disposed cf the ground upo' which Congress was, undoubtedly, induced to attemp this partial exerciso of its authority over the subject of pilotage. The State legislation, consequent upon this excitement of feeling, was an entire new law for the licensing and government of the pilots of the Port of New York, which was passed on the 13th day of April, 1837, but little raor< than a month after the paasage of the law ol Congress oi that year. , Other provisions ol a rigid and onerous character upon thf New York pilots, are also found throughout this law, and the charge* for piloting every veasel in or out oi th port are specifically fixed. ? ? # , Nor were they, as a universal, or oven a general rule citizen* or inhabitants of another State, but residents o! the same city with themselves, who having taken a li cense from another State, were entirely at liberty to be pilots in fair weather, and landsmen in foul, if that should be their pleasure?entirely at liberty to follow the profession of pilots, daring those portions oi the year when the hazards are least and commerce is most ful', and to leave the station* to the regularly licensed pilots of the State at all other times, in caae thsy should find that courae most pleasant or profitable. Ssoh has continued to be the state of things, since the passage of the act of Congress of 1837, and the Stats law of the same year; and it appears tome that, under rfgu lations so unequal, the New York Pilot* have just csuji for complaint. They claim that either the law of Con gress should be repealed, and all the pilot* of the port subjected alike to the provisions and restrictions of tljr State law, or that the restrictions of the State law nhoulo be removed from them, and they lelt, like the pilots who carry the license* of other States, under the simple enact ment ufthe law ol Congress. To my mind this deman< seems to be just, and I know of nobody to which our owi pilots can so properly appeal to do them this justice, a. to the legislature of their own State. The New York Pilots have for year# applied in vain t< Congreas to repeal it* law, and now they come to thai' own legislature and ask of it to lend them its weight in the renewal of that application, or to so modify it* owi legislation as to plare the m upon an rqusllty with other* under the law of Congress My own impression is tfiat if the legislature should consider it wise and proper to in voke the attention of Congress to the inequality and injur tice caused by the law of 1837, and to the danger* of th< commerce of tho port of New York of a repeal of the State law, and an abandonment ol all the pilotaof the port ti the loose and ir definite regulations of the act of Congress the consequence would bo a repeal of that act, leaving again the whole subject to the regulation of the legisla ture of the State, where, for about half a century after the adoption of the federal constitution, It so safely repos ed. In any event, I think the petitioners entitled to thi careful attention of the legislature, and respectfully re quest that attention for them. SILAS WRIGHT. In the House, Mr. Jones moved that the message am document* be referred to the Committee on Commerci and Navigation, aodlthat five times the!usual number oi copies be printed. The reference was carried, and the motion to print re (erred. It is to be hoped that the legislature will prompt ly take up this matter and carry out the viewa of Governor Wright. It ia then to be hoped that Con gress will act justly and wipe out the unequal law affecting this worthy and danger-braving class of our citizen#. Mr. Editor:? We have constant complaint# from every quarter of the city about the filthy and ridiculou# mannet in which the streets are suffered to remain. I am a resident in " Rose street," (but, I assure you, ? Hower by any other name would smell quite a# well,) a street well located for keeping clean, at small expense; and yet it is one of the dirtiest Btreets to be found, with the exception of that part of it which is in the immediate vicinity of the worthy Mayor's residence. But a few days pre vious to the late fall of enow, the laborers, oi street-cleaners, as they are facetiously termed, were employed in sweeping and raking the din and filth up into piles, which had accumulated to ? very offensive degree, and there left to be scattered about again by the wind and passing vehicles, until the snow storm came and enveloped every thing : and now the street is impassable. Now, what an we to do in such a dilemma? The inhabitants on the street will not go to the expense of cleaning it out, and it seems that the Mayor cares for nobody'# comtort but his own; and 1 am suffering for fuel, and no cart can approach my house. If a fire should occur in the street, every thing would be come a prey to the devouring element. A Supperer its Rosa Strut.

Stonington advanced J per ct; Mohawk, }; Canton, ]; Long Island, J; Farmers' Loan, j; Illinois, 1; Kentucky, 2; Ohio, 2; Harlem, 2, Norwich anil Worcester and Mor ris Canal closed firm at yesterday's prices. Pennsylvania 6's was the only stock in the list that fall off from yester day's prices. We notice a sale ol this stock at 70 per cent, seller twelve months. This is four per eent below the price now current. T.ie rocent,improvement ix Illi nois has been produced by the receipt of advices lrom tho Legislature of that State, favorable to the completion of the works of internal improvement of the State, and the passage of the several bills now under consideration, au thorizing an increase of foxes, fcc. Within the past few | weeks there has beeu an advance in quotations far the special bonds of Illinois of seven cent; an unusually rapid improvement for a Stat ? stock. The Money Market is evidently easier. The hanlta discount more freely, and the rate of interest in the street to-day, is now about six per cent. It is the gene ral opinion among operators, that the high rates for sterling exchange now current, cannot be sus tained, and that the immense amount of cotton bills in the market must soon find purchasers, and thus relieve the banks and the money market from the restrictions that hive so long existed. Should the anticipated ad vices from Liverpool in relation to cotton, he iavoroble, or should the last accounts in regard to prices, be confirm ed, the credit of bills drawn on shipments of cotton, must, at once, be sufficiently established ta induce those making remittances, I to take them. When money is scarce and commands more than the legal rate of interest, those obliged to make remittances te Europe are often compelled to purchase bills of exchange on credit, as security their bills receivable. Those msking an operation of this nature would generally remit cotton bill'. The foreign exchange market must soon be ra lievad, through the operation of other movets'ents. Bills of exchange drawn on BCtual sales ol cotton in Liverpool must be as good as any ol those dr.kwn by agents of European houses ; aud bills of exchange J1*""!! on shipments of cotton must ba worth vary near tha K'ce, if drawn lairly, and not above the matket value of the staple in Livetpool. Amidst the whole of the revulsied in tho cotton markets of this country and of Europe, there has been very little trouble experienced from the return or non-payment of ootton bills. They have generally been backed by good houses, who have protected them at maturity and prevented embarrassments. Our iate advices from Liverpool state, that the impres. siou among the heaviest operators in that market was, that prices lor cotton had touched bottom ; that the quota tions then current would be sustained, no matter what tho supplies lrom the United States were. If this be so, there can be no rixk in freely remitting cotton bills of ex change to liquidate indebtedness abroad, but, on the con. 1 trary, they would be entitled to the coaflJence of the | commercial community. The importations into this port for January, as shown by tables recently published, were very large, and it ia possible the receipts may continuo squally so for some tlraa to come; but from rxisting indications wa ara #f the opinion that it will be very difficult to And market! for the supplies. Our Jobbers have determined not to do ao large a business as they bsvo for tha past two saosons Thoy are yet iu doubta as to the value of thsir outstand ing debts, particularly these due from the south sod west, and until (heir bills receivable prove better than antici pated, will feel little diapoaed to extend their business, i Advices daily received from agents travelling through tho western and southern country, are very unfavorable, BDd coming to han 1 at this time, will influence the principals I here in purchasing stocks for their spring trade. The suppliea of foreign manufaetures dally coming into this matket can not, therefore, under these circumstances, I fin 1 a very ready sale, and must, ultimately, induce the ( manufacturers abroad to withheld farther supplies.
